The Japanese Financial System Is Beginning To Spin Wildly Out Of Control

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. James 5:1-3 NIV
The Japanese Financial System Is Beginning To Spin Wildly Out Of Control
The financial system of the third largest economy on the planet is starting to come apart at the seams, and the ripple effects are going to be felt all over the globe.  Nobody knew exactly when the Japanese financial system was going to begin to implode, but pretty much everyone knew that a day of reckoning for Japan was coming eventually.  After all, the Japanese economy has been in a slump for over a decade, Japan has a debt to GDP ratio of well over 200 percent and they are spending about 50 percent of all tax revenue on debt service. http://theeconomiccolla…

We Are Now One Year Away From Global Riots, Complex Systems Theorists Say

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Revolutions and civil unrest



This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away." Luke 21:9 NIV
We Are Now One Year Away From Global Riots, Complex Systems Theorists Say
What’s the number one reason we riot? The plausible, justifiable motivations of trampled-upon humanfolk to fight back are many—poverty, oppression, disenfranchisement, etc—but the big one is more primal than any of the above. It’s hunger, plain and simple. If there’s a single factor that reliably sparks social unrest, it’s food becoming too scarce or too expensive. So argues a group of complex systems theorists in Cambridge, and it makes sense. In a 2011 paper, researchers at the Complex Systems Institute unveiled a model that accurately explained why the waves of unrest that swept the world in 2008 and 2011 crashed when they did. The number on…

Ready for War amid Looming Syria Threat

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars

Damascus has become feeble,  she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain have seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor. Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the Lord Almighty. Jeremiah 49:24-26 NIV
Ready for War amid Looming Syria Threat
Israel is also concerned that Hezbollah or other jihadi terror groups could acquire Syrian chemical weapons. "This is one of the worst scenarios Israel could think about," Dr. Jacques Neriah, special analyst for the Middle East at the JerusalemCenter for Public Affairs, told CBN News. More than 80,000 people have been killed so far in Syria's two-year civil war. But Neriah says that neither those loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad nor those opposing him are winning. "So, we have a stalemate on the ground, …

DHS kicks off $100 million employee ID project

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming 'Mark of the Beast'


It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
DHS kicks off $100 million employee ID project
The Homeland Security Department is buying $100 million worth of services to issue staff at all agencies smartcards with iris and facial recognition capabilities. Late Friday, DHS opened the bidding process for a decade-long project to upgrade personnel identification cards that are used to access federal buildings and networks. Following the September 2001 terrorist attacks, Homeland Security Presidential Directive–12, or HSPD-12, mandated biometric IDs for employees government wide. But many workers, including 82 percent of DHS computer users, flash the credentials at guards, rather than digital readers, largel…

100,000 Christians die for faith every year: Vatican

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian persecution


In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 NIV

Leader of Innovative House Churches Dying in Chinese Prison
Chinese pastor Gong Shengliang once faced the death penalty for leading a 50,000-strong movement of innovative yet unregistered house churches. Now, imprisoned since 2001, the South China Church (SCC) founder is dying from lack of medical care, according to his daughter. CT reported how Gong's 2001 death sentence on charges of rape, arson, and leading a cult drew international headlines, especially after three women revealed they had been tortured into making the rape allegations against him. Intervention by the Bush administration helped earn Gong a retrial and re-sentencing to life in prison instead. A star witness against Gong escaped to the United States in 2005 and also recanted her…

Islam taking over, Europe soon to be unrecognizable

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Revolutions and civil unrest


Europe is on the brink.  With Islam quickly taking control of many regions of Western Europe and with huge percentages of unemployed youth, (many of those being Muslim), there is the growing threat of revolution and major civil unrest.  Far Right groups such as the Golden Dawn threaten violence and unrest against further immigration.  Far Left groups threaten violence and unrest against further austerity and erosion of Europe's cradle to grave welfare system.  Europe as we know it may be unrecognizable in a matter of a few years.

When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away. Luke 21:9 NIV
Islam taking over, Europe soon to be unrecognizable
The murder of a soldier in London, the stabbing of a soldier in Paris and the violent outbreak in Sweden – Europe's alarm clock has been ringing once again over the past week. The negative birthrate compared to the inc…

Pentagon: The Chinese stole our newest weapons

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Rumours of Wars - China and Russia


Two key players in last days events appear to be China, (Kings of the East), and Russia, (Northern most parts above Israel).  Both these nations are currently gearing up their military might in preparation for something happening, (China with respect to Japan and North Korea. Russia with respect to the Middle-East).  
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  Matthew 24:6-7 NIV
Pentagon: The Chinese stole our newest weapons
The designs for more than two dozen major weapons systems used by the United States military have fallen into the hands of the Chinese, US Department of Defense officials say. Blueprints for the Pentagon’s most advanced weaponry, including the Black Hawk helicopter and the brand new Littoral Combat Ship used by the Navy, have all been compromised, the Defense Sc…

Israel warns of action over Russian plan to give missiles to Syria's Assad

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars - Russia


The hook is being set and the Great Bear from the farthest points north of Israel is slowly being reeled around and readied to be dragged into any future Middle-East war.  Russia continues to build it's alliances with the key enemies of Israel, (Syria and Iran). 
You will come from your place in the far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army.  You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes. Ezekiel 38:15-16 NIV
Israel warns of action over Russian plan to give missiles to Syria's Assad
A senior Israeli defense official warned on Tuesday that Russia’s plan to send sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons systems to Syria’s President Bashar Assad was a “threat” and signaled Israel could take some form …

New SARS-like virus is a 'threat to the entire world'

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease outbreaks


New viruses that are both drug resistant and a 'threat to the world'.  Sounds like something straight out of the book of Revelation, which warms of millions of people perishing during the Tribulation due to plagues.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV
New SARS-like virus is a 'threat to the entire world'
A new SARS-like virus recently found in humans is "a threat to the entire world," according to the director-general of the United Nations' World Health Organization. The so-called novel coronavirus "is not a problem that any single affected country can keep to itself or manage all by itself," Margaret Chan said Monday in her closing remarks at the 66th World Assembly in Ge…

DOJ Tells Employees to Verbally Affirm Homosexuality

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing wickedness and evil

Is America past repentance?  Sorry to say, but we believe so, (as does Dr. David Reagan of Lamb/Lion Ministries - video below).  Just read the articles below to understand why we say that. This moral downfall is only going to get worse as the world heads into the coming Tribulation period, and especially so after the only remaining hindrance to evil is withdrawn; That of the Church of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit which resides in every believer. 
For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonians 2:7 NIV
DOJ Tells Employees to Verbally Affirm Homosexuality
The Department of Justice has been accused of religious intolerance and viewpoint discrimination after workers were sent an email directing them to verbally affirm homosexuality, according to a law firm specializing in religious liberty and now representing a DOJ whistleblower…

'Iran nuclear, Syria chemical, Hezbollah rockets: Axis has crossed all red lines'

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars, (Psalm 83 & Gog/Magog)


All three of Israel's major enemies, (Syria, Iran and Hezbollah), have crossed red lines according to the Israeli  Defence Committee Chairman.  So now what?  Iran is close to acquiring a nuclear weapon, Syria has not been afraid to use chemical weapons and Hezbollah has missiles capable of reaching major population centres of Israel.  Israel may have little options left but to initiate a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities before the Iranians reach their goal, and before Syria has in its possession, the new S300 Russian missile defence system. War in the Middle-East is nearly upon us.

'Iran nuclear, Syria chemical, Hezbollah rockets: Axis has crossed all red lines'
The radical axis of Iran, Syria and Hezbollah has crossed all red lines recently, Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday. Speaking at a meeting of his committee, Lieberma…

Anti-West Hard-Liner Gains in Iranian Race

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog Alliance - Iran, (Persia - Ezekiel 38/39)

Anybody who may have thought that with the soon departure of current Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, tensions would ease in the Middle-East.  Well, your'e in for a big surprise.  The current front runner for the Presidency of Iran may be even worse.  Saeed Jalili is dead set against any concessions and compromises with regards to the Iranian nuclear program, and presumably he  hates Israel just as much as Ahmadinejad ever did.
Anti-West Hard-Liner Gains in Iranian Race
At his first presidential campaign rally, Saeed Jalili on Friday welcomed the cheers of thousands of young men as he hauled himself onto the stage. Mr. Jalili, known as Iran’s unyielding nuclear negotiator and a protégé of the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is emerging as the presumed front-runner in Iran’s presidential election on June 14, an unsettling prospect for future relations with the West. Mr. Jalili, 47, who many analyst…

Heaven for atheists? Pope sparks debate

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Departure from sound doctrine

So the new Pope thinks that anyone and everyone that simply does good, will ultimately be saved and redeemed regardless of what religion, (or no religion), one belongs to.  The Catholic Church hopped on board with this and added that no one is excluded from salvation by that little thing called 'original sin'.  Meanwhile over in America, we have yet another "Christian" leader, (Rev. Jay Bakker, son of Jim Bakker), preaching that God absolutely has no problem with homosexuality and that Gays can celebrate in communion with the rest of the Christian church.

Well no offence to the Pope and the Reverend, (who we have no doubt hold a qazillion letters behind their respective names after having attended years of seminary school and such), but they're both out to lunch.  We may not have an alphabet soup of letters behind our name, but we do know what our bible says about all this. Thus for the personal edification of Messrs …

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah clinically dead: Report says

Image
Not a Bible Prophecy Sign, (but of interest nonetheless)

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah may be dead according to this report.  How is this relative to any biblical prophecy?  It isn't, but it may be significant if you are a Shiite Muslim of the Iranian persuasion.  Seems the hard-line regime in Iran have their own last days eschatology which says that the last days will commence once the king of Saudi Arabia dies, (see video below).  This nutty group even go so far as to suggest that it is the destiny of Iran to usher in chaos and war out of which their messianic figure, al-Mahdi, will arrive to save the day.  Explains why Iran has been pushing hard to shore up its military and to acquire its ultimate weapon, a nuclear warhead.

Influential Palestinians Say It’s Time for a One-State Solution

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The seven year covenant of peace, (Daniel 9:27)


So do the Palestinians really want to live peacefully side by side with Israel in a two state holy land?  Or is there another agenda which calls for the eradication of the Jewish state and it's replacement with another Islamic state called Palestine?  Given what some influential Palestinian leader have recently said, and given what is taught to Palestinian children from day one, we suspect the Palestinians will do what ever necessary to see to it that Israel ceases to exist.

This is the reason the Palestinians make the 'right of return' one of their pre-eminent demands in any negotiations.  They know that if they can get Israel to agree to allow for several hundred thousand, (perhaps into the millions), of Arab Palestinians into Israel, that Israel as a home for the Jewish people would eventually become null and void.  They also know that if they can get Israel to agree to go back to the pre-1967 borders, that…

Care plan sees dystopian future arriving early

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Orwellian world government


Perhaps you are not a believer in last days bible prophecy and the coming of the Antichrist, but you have to admit that the world is fast heading towards that of a one world Orwellian dictatorship.  Now comes word that the Scots are implementing a plan whereby every new born baby will be assigned a child protection officer to see to it the child is well looked after until the age of five. Whereupon we suspect the state takes over with the public school system until the child is 18 and an adult.  So will this dystopic intrusion of parental rights and discretions include the overseeing of religious instruction and parental discipline methods?

In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise.  He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the h…

Jewish anti-missionaries take on Messianic believers

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The 144,000 Tribulation Jewish Evangelists


The following is an interesting article which reports on an anti-messianic Jewish group that is attempting to be anti-missionaries to these messianic Jews.  (A  messianic Jew is one the believe Jesus Christ is indeed the messiah that the Jews have long awaited for).

We found this article interesting in that it is the opposite of what bible prophecy tells us will happen during the coming Tribulation period.  God will had choose 144,000 Jews from the 12 tribes and turn them into evangelists for Jesus during the seven years of Tribulation.  These Jews will spread the good news to the world and a great multitude of people will hear their words and will believe.

Some groups have tried to claim that the 144,000 aren't Jews at all but a remnant of true believers, (the Jehovah Witnesses's), while other Christian denominations spiritualize the group into being a great multitude of Christian believers.  They also contend that th…

Scientists warn that Earth faces severe water shortages within a generation

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Drought and the roaring tossing seas - anomalous weather patterns


One set of scientists say that the globe is due to warm even more, while yet another group say no that is not the case, but rather the world is in for a long spell of global cooling.  Come on guys, make up your mind. Which is it?  Trying to predict the climate of the world by using some rather dubious climate models is like trying to nail jello to the wall.  It just won't work.  There are far more variables that make up the the climate cycles than those of just that of the anthropogenic, (man made) kind.  For instance, the Sun!!

Be that as it may, the global scientists, mainstream media and national governments continue to harp on about how man is behind all the problems of the climate, and how we should spend billions of dollars and form new global governances systems to rectify the problems, (the one world government).  You know, God might have something to do with the climate as well.  He often us…

Activist warns of brutal repression of Christians

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian Persecution/Marginalization 

While true biblical Christianity is under attack in the free world by the process of marginalization, Christianity and Christians are under threat of persecution and even death in much of the new Islamic Arab world.  Bible prophecy warns of a future time when those that follow Jesus Christ will be persecuted and even put to death by those that think they are doing God a service, (John 16:2).  Doesn't that sound like what radical Islam is attempting to do in Arab world today?

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other. Matthew 24:9-10 NIV

The Nazification of Liberal Christianity

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Growing and intense hatred for Israel and the Jews


Replacement Theology is the heretical doctrine which teaches that Israel and the Jews have been forever abandoned by God and all the promises given to Israel in the Old Testament now belong to the Church.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  In fact this "monstrous", (as the article below describes it), teaching has, (and continues to do so), instilled hatred and mistrust of Jews and Israel into much of Christendom, and thus the Church becomes silent in the midst of much evil directed towards the Jews, (eg Hitler and the Holocaust).

Once again we are seeing the rise today in mainstream/liberal Christianity of this same mindset that existed in the 1930's Churches of Europe and in particular those in Germany.  This midset will do much to delegitimize Israel in global conciousness and set the plate for the advent of the Antichrist who will pursue the Jewish people, (Revelation 12:13), and will kill up …
