Prophecy Sign:  The soon return of Jesus Christ\

For the Christians eagerly awaiting the soon return of Jesus Christ and who have been watching for signs of his return, the video below is of great interest and encouragement.

Just for fun we thought we would summarize God's prophetic plans for Israel, the Jews and the remainder of the world from the perspective of the Old Testament alone.  One can see that both the Rapture of the Believers and the coming Tribulation are alluded to in these ancient prophecies.

The rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948 Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. Isaiah 66:8 NIV

The return of the Jews to there restored nation:
Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back. Deuteronomy 30:…

Attacks On Christians in Egypt Nothing Less Than Satanic Says Leader Inside 'Furnace of Fire'

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian persecution


They will put you out of the synagogue, yet a time is coming when the one who kills you will think he is offering service to God. John 16:2 NET
Attacks On Christians in Egypt Nothing Less Than Satanic Says Leader Inside 'Furnace of Fire'
The recent barrage of attacks on Christians in Egypt, including on members and churches of the nation's Coptic denomination, are of a scale unseen in modern times and being described as satanic, according to sources living in the country. The persecution watchdog group, Open Doors USA, says Egypt is engulfed in a furnace of fire and Christians are taking on the brunt force of the attacks. "The attack against the Christians of Egypt is nothing less than a furious satanic attack that aims at terrorizing Christians, imprisoning them at their homes helplessly with no guarantee of protection so their love, peace, hope and testimony may be neutralized," stated an anonymous Christian leader,…

Syrian Rebels: '1,300 Killed In Gas Attack'

Prophecy Sign:  Syria will implode.  Damascus will be destroyed

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
Syrian Rebels: '1,300 Killed In Gas Attack'
More than 1,300 people have been killed in a chemical weapons attack near Damascus, according to Syria's main opposition group. The National Coalition claims toxic gas was used by President Bashar al Assad's forces during a bombardment of rebel-held areas outside the Syrian capital. It described the attack as a "coup de grace that kills all hopes for a political solution in Syria". The government said the claims were "totally false" and the international news organisations repor…

When Welfare Pays Better than Work

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse

In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him; the full force of misery will come upon him. Job 20:22 NIV
When Welfare Pays Better than Work
The federal government funds 126 separate programs targeted towards low-income people, 72 of which provide either cash or in-kind benefits to individuals. (The rest fund community-wide programs for low-income neighborhoods, with no direct benefits to individuals.) State and local governments operate more welfare programs.Of course, no individual or family gets benefits from all 72 programs, but many do get aid from a number of them at any point in time. Today, the Cato institute is releasing a new study looking at the state-by-state value of welfare for a mother with two children. In the EmpireState, a family receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid, food stamps, WIC, public housing, utility assistance and free commodities (like milk and cheese) would have a package of b…

Facial scanning surveillance becoming a reality in the U.S., new documents reveal

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state


The beast was permitted to go to war against the saints and conquer them. He was given ruling authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation, Revelation 13:7 NET
Facial scanning surveillance becoming a reality in the U.S., new documents reveal
The U.S. government is making progress on developing a surveillance system that would pair computers with video cameras to scan crowds and automatically identify people by their faces, according to newly disclosed documents and interviews with researchers working on the project. The Department of Homeland Security recently tested a crowd-scanning project called the Biometric Optical Surveillance System — or BOSS — after two years of government-financed development. Although the system is not ready for use, researchers say they are making significant advances on it. That alarms privacy advocates, who say that now is the time for the government to establish oversight rules and limits on h…

Fukushima apocalypse: Years of ‘duct tape fixes’ could result in ‘millions of deaths’

Prophecy Sign:  Waters will be poisoned - Revelation 8:11

So then, listen to what I, the LORD God of Israel who rules over all, say. 'I will make these people eat the bitter food of suffering and drink the poison water of judgment. Jeremiah 9:15 NET

Fukushima apocalypse: Years of ‘duct tape fixes’ could result in ‘millions of deaths’
Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome, fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT. Fukushima operator TEPCO wants to extract 400 tons worth of spent fuel rods stored in a pool at the plant’s damaged Reactor No. 4. The removal would have to be done manually from the top store of the damaged building in the radiation-contaminated environment. In the worst-case scenario, a mishandled rod may go critical, resulting in an above-ground meltdown releasing radioactive fallout with no way to stop i…

Just How Corrupt Is the Obama Administration?

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Leaders of nations will increase in corruption




They are determined to be experts at doing evil; government officials and judges take bribes, prominent men make demands, and they all do what is necessary to satisfy them. Micah 7:3 NET
Just How Corrupt Is the Obama Administration?
Scandal after scandal, coupled with an ongoing contempt for the law and the Constitution, demonstrated by high-level officials and the president himself, point to one deeply troubling conclusion: the Obama administration may be the most corrupt administration ever inflicted on the American public. And while the mainstream media have done a remarkable job deflecting much of that reality, even they cannot keep up with the avalanche of disturbing revelations that arise, seemingly on a daily basis. http://frontpagemag.com/2013/arnold-ahlert/just-how-corrupt-is-the-obama-administration/

PA Radio: One Day Israel 'Will be Palestine Again'

Prophecy Sign:  Palestinian jealousy for the land of Israel


Because you have said, “These two nations and countries will be ours and we will take possession of them,” even though I the Lord was there, therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will treat you in accordance with the anger and jealousy you showed in your hatred of them and I will make myself known among them when I judge you. Ezekiel 35:10-11 NIV

PA Radio: One Day Israel 'Will be Palestine Again'
As "peace talks" continue apace, prompted on by the ever-optimistic John Kerry, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), an NGO dedicated to monitoring hate speech, anti-Israel rhetoric and incitement to violence in the Palestinian Arab media, has highlighted yet another inflammatory statement by official PA organs. During a special "holiday broadcast" on 8th August in honor of the Muslim festival of Eid el-Fitr, the PA's official radio station expressed its hope and certainty that the State…

Sakurajima Volcano Erupts in Japan: Largest Eruption in Decades Sends Ash Plume Miles High

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and Volcanoes in diverse places

Judgment will come from the LORD who commands armies, accompanied by thunder, earthquake, and a loud noise, by a strong gale, a windstorm, and a consuming flame of fire. Isaiah 29:6 NET
Sakurajima Volcano Erupts in Japan: Largest Eruption in Decades Sends Ash Plume Miles High
Residents in a southern Japanese city were busy washing ash off the streets Monday after a nearby volcano spewed a record-high smoke plume into the sky. Sakurajima, one of Japan's most active volcanoes, experienced one of its most powerful eruptions in decades Sunday, sending an ash plume as high as three miles into the air. The volcano, located in the far southwestern part of Japan's mainland on the island of Kyushu, began to erupt at 4:31 p.m. local time Sunday (3:31 a.m. EDTU.S. time). The smoke plume eventually reached a height of 5,000 meters (approximately 16,000 feet), according to the Kagoshima Local Meteorological Observatory. Public broadc…

Far East under water

Prophecy Sign:  Roaring tossing seas - anomalous weather patterns

And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth nations will be in distress, anxious over the roaring of the sea and the surging waves. Luke 21:25 NET
Floods Recede in Manila as Thousands Evacuated
Flooding caused by some of the Philippines' heaviest rains that submerged more than half the capital began receding Tuesday, but authorities evacuated thousands of residents along Manila's overflowing rivers and braced for more chaos in outlying provinces. At least eight people have died, including four who drowned north of Manila. The dead included a 5-year-old boy whose house was hit by a concrete wall that collapsed, and a 3-year-old boy who fell into a swollen river in Mariveles town in Bataan province. Four people are missing. Throughout the sprawling, low-lying capital region of 12 million people, offices, banks and schools were closed and most roads were impassable. People stumbled through …

California Considers Punishing Youth Groups Against Homosexuality as ‘Bathroom Bill’ Becomes Law

Image
Prophecy Sign:  An increasingly depraved society




Well we suppose that if the Apostle Paul had to put up with a society that had wild sex orgies in the local pagan temples, and gay sex in the bath houses, we should not be surprised to see current society degrading to similar levels as God is kicked to the curb.


They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Romans 1:29-31 NIV
California Considers Punishing Youth Groups Against Homosexuality as ‘Bathroom Bill’ Becomes Law
On the same day that the governor of California signed a bill into law mandating that boys who identify as girls be allowed to use girls’ bathrooms and vice versa, a California committee approved legislation which would cause any non-profit…

Breast implants suicide bomb threat

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times in the last days



So is airport security going to require all women to go through further indignity by undergoing breast exams before boarding their flight? Yet another reason to avoid travel by air we think.  Do you know that bible prophecy may have alluded to terrorism in the last days?

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV  fearful = Greek 'phobetra' - a cause of terror
Breast implants suicide bomb threat
HeathrowAirport is on high terror alert amid fears women suicide bombers are ready to strike with ­explosives concealed in breast implants. Security checks have been beefed up after “credible” intelligence that al-Qaeda is plotting attacks on airlines flying out of London. One staff member said: “There are genuine fears over this. "We have been told to pay particular attention to females who may have concealed hidden explosives in their breast…

Hamas claims Abbas agreed to security fence border, forfeited right of return

Prophecy Sign:  The seven year peace covenant



An interesting article which reports that there may be an outline of proposed agreements between the Palestinians and the Israelis with a 10 year term of expiration. Make that seven years and you have a deal.

He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him." Daniel 9:27 NIV
Hamas claims Abbas agreed to security fence border, forfeited right of return
Hamas on Wednesday claimed it had obtained the contents of meetings held between US Secretary of State John Kerry and PA President Mahmoud Abbas last month, with an outline of proposed agreements between Israel and the Palestinians. In a statement published on its official website, the Islamic movement claimed that Abbas and Kerry agreed that the security barrier built by Isr…

Ex-Evangelicals & Chili Cornbread Eucharist

Prophecy Sign:  Apostate Christianity


We are in a culture war, and the church is in the direct line of fire.  The enemy is doing his utmost to destroy and undermine the doctrinal believes that the church has held to since the birth of the church.  People are looking for a form of Christianity that will make them feel good and that they believe is tolerant and inclusive of every belief.  This form of Christianity is what the Apostle Paul warned would be prevalent in the last days.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NIV
Ex-Evangelicals & Chili Cornbread Eucharist
The Wild Goose Festival — named after the Celtic imagery for the Holy Spirit—draws in aging Protestant Mainliners and disenchanted ex-evangelicals. The festival highlights what its apologists call “emergence Christianity,” but Wild Goose cert…

Glenn and Buck talk about the situation in Egypt and throughout the Middle East

Prophecy Sign:  Rumours of Wars

Happened to be visiting the Blaze website today and came across this very interesting video from the Glenn Beck program which talks of the coming wars in the Middle-East.  If you know your bible prophecy, you can slot in the various prophecies with the discussion that Glenn and his guest engage in.

Even those that know nothing of bible prophecy, (or don't care to know in Mr. Becks case), can see events coalescing into something cataclysmic.

Prophecy Sign:  The pampered, prosperity seeking, self-fulfilled church of the last days

An affluent entitled society, breeds an affluent entitled church which becomes worthless and ineffective for the work of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.  This is exactly what is warned off with the Church of Laodicea, (Revelation), which many prophecy scholars believe is representative of the church of the last days.

You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Revelation 3:17 NIV 
Gimme! Gimme!
And we all want churches that are incredibly friendly without being intrusive, filled with people like us yet diverse, traditional but contemporary featuring world-class preaching, relevant programs, Spirit-filled worship, relentless joy, and big parking lots every Sunday for exactly one hour. We’re like the cartoon of a man at the church coffee table. “No cappuccino!?” he exclaims “What kind of a church is thi…

A Middle East Without Christians

Prophecy Sign:  Increased Christian persecution

Christianity is systematically being wiped out in the Middle-East. Where a century ago, 1 in 5 called themselves Christians, that number is now down to less than 1 in 20 and dwindling fast.  We ask that you continue to pray for the Christians of the Middle-East as they struggle to survive in the increasingly fanatical Islamic world.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. f you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:18-19 NIV

A Middle East Without Christians
Despite Muslim domination of the region, Christians comprised an estimated 20% of the Middle East population until the early 20th century. Today, however, Christians make up a mere 2-5% of the Middle East and their numbers are fast dwindling. Writing in the Winter 2001 issue of Middle East Quarterly, scholar Daniel Pipes esti…

Analysis: It’s official, military chief Sisi is new king of Egypt

Image
Prophecy Sign:  A fierce king will rule over Egypt
Bible prophecy tells us that in a future time, the nation of Egypt will be taken over by a fierce king. Some prophecy experts contend that this will be the Antichrist, while others, (including ourselves), believe it will be another individual who will become the King of the South, (Sunni Muslims?), who aligns with the King of the North, (Shiite Muslims?), to take on the Antichrist during the Tribulation, (Daniel 11).

After the Arab Spring of 2011, and the ouster of former Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak, some thought that the new Muslim Brotherhood President, Mohamed Morsi might be that king.  That would not be the case, as he and his party where swept away in the recent military takeover.  So once again we watch the news from Egypt for any indication as to whom this person might be.  Today we came across a very interesting article, (see below), from Israel which actually calls the military chief of Egypt, (Abdel Fattah al-Sis), the…

They Are Systematically Destroying Our Independence And Making Us All Serfs Of The State

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse


The signs are once again pointing to an approaching economic setback, perhaps similar to the one we had just a handful of years ago.  Soon, a time will come when an economic tsunami will sweep through the world taking the present global economic system with it.  It will be at that time when a brand new system will be implemented worldwide and initially be controlled by a group of 10 world leaders, (Daniel 7 & Revelation 17), but then taken over by the future man of sin, (Antichrist).  But for now, the bible warns that economic disasters have occurred before and will happen again.

For he has oppressed the poor and left them destitute; he has seized houses he did not build.  “Surely he will have no respite from his craving; he cannot save himself by his treasure. Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure. In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him; the full force of misery will come upon him. Job …

Israel-Palestinian peace talks resume in Jerusalem

Prophecy Sign:  The coming seven year peace covenant between Israel and the many

So peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis have begun again.  It is very interesting that the talks have a nine month deadline on reaching an accord, and also that none of the negotiators will have the power to "cut a deal"  Presumably the negotiators would come to a consensus and the deal would be ratified and signed off on by a future political leader, (the future Antichrist perhaps?)

It is also interesting that the nine month time frame corresponds to the length of a woman's pregnancy.  Why is this interesting?  Because prophecy tells us that there will be a confluence of prophetic signs in the last days which will seem like birth pangs, (Matthew 24:8), out of which a covenant of peace will be birthed between Israel and the world.  The world and Israel will dance in the streets assuming peace has finally been achieved, but it wont last as sudden destruction will come upon th…

'War zone': Scores killed in Egypt violence, month long state of emergency proclaimed

Prophecy Sign:  Egypt - brother against brother

Since the Arab spring began some two years ago, Egypt has experienced a series of bloody confrontations, but perhaps none as bloody as what has occurred in the last 24 hours. Reports are coming in suggesting anywhere between 250 to 500 killed and thousands more injured in violent street fights between Muslim Brotherhood supporters and the ruling Military.

A prophecy from Isaiah certainly seems to be playing out big time as brother is stirred up against brother, and Egyptian against Egyptian. One of the very unfortunate things that is happening, (and not being reported), is the destruction of Christian Churches going on.  More on that can be found at this web link:  Christian Churches Attacked, Burn All Over Egypt

Please pray that peace will be restored in Egypt and that God will place his hand of protection over the Egyptian Christians as the two Islamic sides battle it out for control.

A prophecy against Egypt: See, the LORD rides on a …

Evangelical ‘Messy Middle’ is more accepting of gays

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The Laodicean, last days Apostate church



Much of Western Christendom has sold out to the world.  No longer is Jesus the son of the living God, the incarnate third person of the triune God.  No longer is Jesus the only way to the Father.  No longer are certain lifestyles consider "sinful" any more. Instead Jesus is a magic genie ready to fork over material wealth for the asking, or some sort of revolutionary that seeks to bring unity and tolerance into the world, (that actually sounds like the Antichrist doesn't?).

Paul was right about these last days, and we can expect that those of us that believe in a biblical Christianity are going to be fewer and fewer as the rest of Christendom seek out a more pleasurable and less offensive doctrine.


For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:…
