A Message About Elam

Prophecy Confusing??
One thing we have learned over the course of the last several years in our study of bible prophecy is that there are a vast number of different interpretation of coming events and a great deal of disagreement among prophecy scholars, (we consider ourselves to be only students of prophecy - still learning).  From the ethnic identity of the Antichrist, (Muslim, European, apostate Jew, even Nephilim), to what is Babylon of the last days, (Rome, actual Babylon rebuilt, America), to the timing of the Gog/Magog war, (pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, its actually Armageddon).  
It can be very confusing to sort through the many, many different interpretations to come to some sort of idea as to what will occur in these, the last days.  This is why so many Christians simply just through up their hands and become Pan-Trib Christians, (it will all just pan-out in the end).
A case in point of the confusing interpretations is that of the prophecy of Jeremiah regarding Elam.  W…

White House OKd spying on allies, U.S. intelligence officials say

Prophecy Sign:  World Government

The current man of sin, (not to be confused with the future man of sin), is simply having a bad day, (week, month, year, second term).  His private snoop department, (otherwise known as the NSA), is denying German allegations that President Barack Obama knew and gave the go-ahead to spy away on several dozen world leaders.  Meanwhile the people that actually do the grunt work in the NSA are having nothing to do with this denial and are coming out saying, yes...the White House and State Department certainly did know what was going on.

Well we suppose now the President will simply have to fire all these whistle-blowers for their refusal to toe the party line, (just like all the recent military commanding officers that have been made to walk the proverbial plank - articles below).  If you watch the continuing saga that is the current Obama administration, you will have just a little idea what the real future man of sin, (Antichrist), will be like as the A…

EU Proposal to Monitor "Intolerant" Citizens

Prophecy Sign:  The one world government

So if the E.U get's its way, some future European bureaucrat is going to decide just what constitutes correct groupthink and what forms of speech will be considered intolerant and requirement of punishment. Meantime the Prime Minister of Britain is warning news organization to stop doing what all good news organizations are supposed to do, (report on government over-reach), in their reporting of future national security leaks.

So let's summarize: Refrain from intolerable independent thinking and refrain from reporting on government activities towards it's citizens.  If we didn't know any better we'd say we woke up this morning in some bad rendition of George Orwell's classic dystopic novel "1984"  You see of course were this is all heading:  Some day a future world dictator, (Antichrist), will have all media organizations under his thumb of control, (nothing bad said about the man - eg MSNBC and Obama), nor wi…

‘Iran two weeks away from weapons-grade uranium’

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East wars - Iran

Iran has the ability to develop enough weapons grade uranium within a 2 to 4 week time frame if it so chooses to do so, (according to reports).  Israel has a window that is rapidly closing in which it could bomb the heck out of the Iranian nuclear program if it so chooses.  So which one do you think will choose first??

According the the Prophet Jeremiah, that choice may be Israel's as the prophet saw the many peoples of Elam, (present day Iran), scattered to the far corners of the earth and the military might of Iran being destroyed, (Jeremiah 49:35-36), in a future confrontation.

‘Iran two weeks away from weapons-grade uranium’
Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks and has, “in a certain way,” already reached the point of no return in its nuclear program, a former senior International Atomic Energy Association official said Monday. “I believe that if certain arrangements are don…

Abbas said to soften stance on interim peace agreement

Prophecy Sign:  The seven year covenant/peace agreement

Well, the Palestinian Authority President is now finally ready to accept a possible 'interim peace agreement': A framework for two states, (hey a seven year interim peace agreement comes to mind - Daniel 9:27).  But here are the Palestinian demands, (see all talking points below):  Palestine has to be considered as currently 'under occupation"; Israel has to withdraw to 1949 lines, (which many call Auschwitz borders - certain death of the Jewish nation);  A new Palestine would take full control of the Temple Mount with a pledge of freedom of worship - ya right, we buy that one; All disposed Palestinian refugees to the 4th generation must be allowed to choose where they return to - millions would suddenly descend on Israel eroding it's Jewish nature.

Hmmm!!  At first glance our response if we were the Israeli negotiators would be FAT CHANCE!!  Not gonna happen.  But we're not on the negotiating team and we…

Bitcoin kiosks coming to five Canadian cities

Prophecy Sign:  The coming cashless society

Have you heard of "Bitcoin"?  Well you better get used to the term, as its the latest and greatest form of cashless currency which has been given credence as real currency by recent court judgements.  What we find very interesting is not so much the bitcoin but the way that the new bitcoin kiosks work.  You need to insert your hand over a scanner for the transaction to take place, (see video below).

We believe that in the new economy of the Antichrist, (and his 10 world ruling cohorts), cash will be a thing of the past and all transactions will become digital.  Part of the future 'mark of the beast', likely will be some biometric ability to gain access to this new way of conducting daily commerce.

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…

NSA stores data to target any citizen at any time - Greenwald

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state

Oh the good ole NS of A, (National Security Agency).  Doing it's level best to spy on every citizen of America and apparently on nearly every one else in the world who happens to make cell phone calls and has access to the internet.  And what does the NSA do with all this metadata??  Why hang on to it forever in the event it needs the data to target a citizen in the future.  Oh, doesn't that make you feel safer just thinking about it?  If that's not the definition of Orwellian we don't know what is!!  Goodness, even the Pope and the Vatican is not immune to the ongoing eavesdropping operations, (article below).

We keep warning, the every expanding and intrusive surveillance state that is being constructed globally will be used by the future "man of sin", (Antichrist), to gain authority over every citizen on planet Earth. You just don't go around beheading millions throughout the world without first buil…

Now get ready for an ‘Ice Age’ as experts warn of Siberian winter ahead

Prophecy Sign:  Roaring and Tossing of the Seas - Anomalous weather patterns

Well the weather and global climate continues to baffle and befuddle climate scientists, (not to mention amuse those of us watching those very same climate scientists attempt to explain why their climate models are so out to lunch in their apocalyptic predictions. Perhaps because it's the SUN!! causing the climate to oscillate between changes over the course of several decades?? ).

God does use the weather for purposes of judgement, (look at all the droughts in the old Testament), and we believe bible prophecy warns of such again as we read of the roaring and tossing of the seas, which we believe is a way of saying anomalous weather patterns which will cause much confusion and consternation amongst the people and nations of the world in the last days.  (Can you say 'climate change debate'?)

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexit…

U.S. must embrace Holy See

Prophecy Sign:  The False Religious system of the last days

John, the Revelator warned that in the last days, the religions of the world would come together in ecumenical harmony and work together in alliance with the political and economic spheres to bring about a brand new world order.  John saw this scenario as a woman, (the false religious system), riding a beast, (the political/economic sphere).  This false religious system would point the world to the worship of the Antichrist who would head this new world order. 

How interesting to read of this very prophetic scenario being hailed as a great opportunity for America.  A merger, (or "embrace" as it's called in the article), of what many prophecy scholars consider to be Mystery Babylon of both the religious aspect, (the Roman Church), and the economic/political aspect, (America).

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemo…

Student To Lose Virginity In Live Gay Sex Show For Art Project

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing depravity, (lovers of selves)

Paul wrote to Timothy and warned him that in the last days, the peoples of the world would engage in a form of Godliness, but deny the true power of God, (2 Timothy 3:5).  The Apostle Paul also warned that the last days would be filled with all manner of evil and depravity as mankind followed the lie of "do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law", (quote from Satanist, Aleister Crowley).
Is there any doubt that we are the final generation when we read how school children are being indoctrinated into New Age religious meditation while Christian religious instruction is banned?, (article below).  Or how about articles reporting on live sex acts and public nudity performances in the name of ART?  
Get ready......for your redemption out of this cesspool is drawing ever so close.
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. T…

New report says Iran can have nuclear bomb in a month

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars - Iran, (Persia - Ezekiel 38/39)

How long before we turn on the news and see all channels tuned into the events transpiring over the skies of Iran?  With reports indicating that Iran may be only a month away from acquiring a nuclear bomb, and that Iran will not cave to Western demands to reign in its nuclear program, Israel may be close to finally deciding to make its move.  Reports indicate that move will be within the coming year.

Should Israel launch an attack on Iran, any number of scenarios could be the result;  Terror cells unleashed by Iran in the Western world, (primarily America); Iran unleashes its' proxies in another Arab/Israel war, (Psalm 83);  Oil prices skyrocket causing major damage to the global economy.  Very scary stuff, but if we are as close to the end of things as we think we are, then it should be expected that major events will occur to move the world towards the start of the Tribulation.  We pray that a…

'Permanent peace deal will be achieved in spring 2014'

Prophecy Sign:  The coming seven year covenant/peace agreement

It is being reported that the British Consul-General to Jerusalem is suggesting that a permanent peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will be achieved by next spring, (2014). Jerusalem would be divided and become the capital of both Israel and a new Palestinian state.  It is also reported that a proposal has been formulated that would seek joint management of the Temple Mount by both Israel and the Palestinians.  With all this in mind, the Israeli government has decided to allow the restoration of an ancient mikve, (ceremonial ritual baths), near the Temple Mount.

Seems we are drawing ever closer to the fulfillment of a prophecy which warns that when the world begins to joyfully claim "peace and safety", that is when the worst days of planet earth will ensue, (the seven years of Tribulation).

While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pain…

Evangelical Leader Preaches Pullback From Politics, Culture Wars

Prophecy Sign:  The continued dilution of biblical doctrine 

Recently we've been highlighting the new Pope's war on conservative ideological doctrinal beliefs and his emphasis on tolerance, ecumenicism and social justice issues.  Somewhat coincidentally, although perhaps not as controversial, the new head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission is calling for a pullback of the church from the political and cultural war.  He suggests that activism in the political arena should be curtailed and that the church should love the homosexual community and not consider the Gay agenda to be an "evil conspiracy".  In dressed up words, Russell Moore has basically said the same thing as Pope Francis.

While we agree that Christians should show love for all peoples, including those in the Gay community, we can't agree that we should simply drop our activism towards maintaining some semblance of Godly principals and mores in our laws and…

Minister: '7,000 Could be Killed in a Major Earthquake'

Prophecy Sign: A large future earthquake in the land of Israel

We found the following news report of an Israeli government Minister's warning to the Knesset,  to be very interesting.  The Home Front Minister, in referencing all the recent earthquakes in Israel, said that a major earthquake in Israel would potentially kill 7,000 people, (and injuring many more).  This is coincidentally the exact number of people that bible prophecy says will perish during an earthquake in Israel during the coming Tribulation period.
Prophetic utterance on the part of the Israeli MK?  Sure seems like it to us.

Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation 11:12-13 NIV
Minister: '…

Report: NSA Spied on 124 Billion Phone Calls in One Month

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state

The Obama administration certainly has no shortage of peoples, groups and nations only slightly perturbed with it, (a major understatement if there ever was one).  From Middle-East nations angered with Obama's foreign policy to Western allies angered that their leaders have been under surveillance by the NSA to plain ordinary citizens of America angered with just about everything their President has done, (Obamacare, Benghazi, etc).

As for the surveillance of nations and citizens, this surveillance has become Orwellian in nature as the NSA, (according to the reports), is monitoring nearly every daily communication to the tune of hundreds of billions of calls per month. Say the wrong buzz word, (terrorist, bomb, etc), and your conversation will likely be quickly identified along with your identity.  Welcome to the new age of the surveillance state.  Such will be given over the the Antichrist as he takes reign and authority over …

Does Army consider Christians, Tea Party, a terror threat?

Prophecy Sign:  Global Christian persecution

Another strong indicator that we are living in the last days, is the explosion in Christian persecution. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have had to flee their homes in the Islamic world for fear of their lives. Meanwhile bible believing Christians in the Western world are being labelled as hate groups and terror threats by their very own governments.  It's only going to get worse as the world plunges ahead towards the Tribulation period when countless millions of Jesus followers, (the Tribulation Saints), will be martyred for the faith in Christ.

You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 NIV
Does Army consider Christians, Tea Party, a terror threat?
