The whole reason we do this blog - That you might be saved

The whole reason for the existence of this blog and for the work we put into it, is to ultimately build the Kingdom of God by seeing souls saved and becoming followers of Jesus Christ.  We pray that the information we provide on this blog will help the believer communicate to their unsaved friends and family, the nearness of Christs return.  We also pray that those that just happen to surf upon our blog and are not yet a part of the family of God, will consider the information presented and then their eternal destiny.  To that end we appreciate the work of such evangelists as Ray Comfort who regularly generates some very thought provoking videos, (as is the one below), which challenge the unbeliever to look beyond the superficiality of this life.

If you are one of those folks who is still on a journey seeking the truth of things, we ask you to watch the video and consider the words of Paul the Apostle as he tells you what you must do to be saved:

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus…

Report: Poland Calls Up Army Reserves: “The World Stands On the Brink of Conflict”

Prophecy Sign:  Wars and Rumours of Wars

No sooner does the seven years of Tribulation begin, then wars break out globally. We are told that the Antichrist rides out bent on conquest and peace is taken from the earth as wars are fought amongst the nations, (Revelation 6:2-4). The stage setting, (rumours of war),  for all these wars are now in process as regions from Asia to Eastern Europe, from the Indian Subcontinent to the Middle-East all flex their military muscle.

Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say, “I am strong!” Come quickly, all you nations from every side, and assemble there. Joel 3:9-11 NIV

Why Are Presbyterians Launching Hate Speech Vilifying Israel?

Prophecy Sign:  The hatred of the Jewish people and Jewish nation.....will only get worse

The poor Jews never catch a break.  Hated since the day that God choose Abraham and declared that a great nation would come out of him, the Jews are still hated by much of the world to this day.  This hatred will grow globally during the coming Tribulation to the point where Israel will come under siege by all the nations of the earth.  It will require the direct intervention of Jesus Christ to save the remnant of Jews still alive at the end of the Tribulation, (Zechariah 14:3).

You will become a thing of horror, a byword and an object of ridicule among all the peoples where the LORD will drive you. Deuteronomy 28:37 NIV You have made us a reproach to our neighbors, the scorn and derision of those around us. Psalm 44:13 NIV

'Very painful': World heading for bust 'unlike any other', says Jeremy Grantham

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse, (and reset)

You don't even have to talk to a student of bible prophecy to know that an economic tsunami is washing towards us, (just ask any market trends watcher, and he will tell you).  Along with all the coming wars, earthquakes, famines and plagues, there approaches an economic collapse.  Out of this collapse will arise a new world economic order which will initially be controlled by a cadre of 10 new economic kingdoms/kings. These kings will then turn over their power and authority to the Antichrist, (Revelation 17:12-13).

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

Vatican Astronomers Ramp Up Their Search For “Brother Extraterrestrial”

Prophecy Sign:  The return of the Nephilim - The Ancient Alien great delusion

That's one ugly looking alien in the picture above, and for some strange reason the Vatican is on the hunt for it.  And in fact, the Vatican believes that once we find and talk with ET, he/she/it will lead us to a closer understanding of God, and may in fact help to redeem us to our creator.  Don't be fooled and deceived;  The Ancient Alien and his cohorts will be none other than the return of the Nephilim, (the fallen angelic procreation of the pre-flood world).  This demonic lot will work hand in hand with the future Antichrist and False Prophet to convince the world that the messiah has returned in the embodiment of the Antichrist and is to be worshiped. The bible says completely otherwise, calling this a very powerful delusion.

They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. 2 Thessalonians 2:…

Slate Columnist: 'Christians Were Pro-Choice'

Prophecy Sign:  An increasingly pagan and depraved society

Can it go on much longer when the nations judges consider the murder of the unborn to be no more comparable to a blood transfusion or vaccination?  Can it go on much longer when the proponents of abortion consider the act to be a gift from God, and that Christians are really pro-choice?  Can it go on much longer when universities set up exhibits that celebrate the murder of the unborn?  A depraved society indeed, as we rapidly approach the very last of the last days.

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28 NIV
Slate Columnist: 'Christians Were Pro-Choice' Writing for Slate, columnist Jamelle Bouie regards Christian evangelical opposition to abortion as a rather strange anomaly that only came about after the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade. He suggests that the anti-abortion move…

Israel and Syria: edging towards the brink

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East wars and the Israel defences

Bible prophecy warns of a sequence of battles and wars, (perhaps just one long war culminating in Armageddon), that will be fought in the Middle-East in the last days.  Prophecy also indicates that the army of Israel, (the IDF), will be empowered by God to lay a licking on the invading Arab armies.  In fact it would appear that there's not much left of the armies of Allah after Israel gets done with them.

On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place. Zechariah 12:6 NIV
Jacob will be a fire and Joseph a flame; Esau will be stubble, and they will set him on fire and destroy him. There will be no survivors from Esau." The LORD has spoken. Obadiah 1:18 NIV

Study: ‘Small’ Nuclear War Would Destroy The World

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times and nuclear war

Bible prophecy does seem to allude to nuclear war and the use of nuclear weapons during the Tribulation. Fire devouring everything in sight, while the flesh of the armies that fight against Israel melts and rots away while still standing.  Seems very descriptive of what may occur as a nuclear weapon explodes overhead.

Some would say that God can easily call down his own fire to destroy what he may, which is very true. But it would seem also that God might also allow the evil things that man has created in the name of war, (weapons of mass destruction), to come back to haunt mankind at the end of time.

This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. Zechariah 14:12 NIV
Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is l…

Washington reportedly fears collapse of peace talks

Prophecy Sign:  Jerusalem - the stone that cuts to pieces

Well the Obama administration is going to come out of these, the current Israel/Palestinian peace negotiations, pretty darn cut up and bloodied.  They too will learn that the very heavy stone that is the Jerusalem/Israel conundrum can slice up an administration in very short order.  The world is no where near seeing a peace deal for the region as both sides, (Israelis and Palestinians), blame each other for the lack of progress.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone as the conflict is an ancient supernatural conflict pitting the God of Israel against the god of this world, (Satan).  We fully expect a war to take place first, from which a false peace agreement will finally be signed, (brokered by the Antichrist).  The god of this world will then embody the man of sin, (Antichrist), and will make one final attempt to wipe out the nation of Israel and the Jewish people for good.  Satan will lose.

On that day, when all the nat…

World Vision reverses decision on hiring Christians in same-sex marriages

Prophecy Sign:  The falling away from true faith

First they were, but now there not.  Such is the quick turnaround for one of the largest international Christian ministries in the world.  World Vision had stunned the Christian community with its decision to allow people of homosexual unions to act as missionaries within its ranks.  After taking much heat from the Evangelical Church community over the announcement, World Vision backed off from its decision.  But the question remains, for how long? Judging by the assessment of one writer, (mass exodus article below), if the conservative evangelical church does not conform to the worlds vision of what is just and equal, (including homosexuality), the church can kiss its membership goodbye.  Of course the only way that could happen is if the membership of the church completely abandons the true faith of biblical Christianity and follows deceiving spirits and doctrines that tickle the ears.  Sadly, this is exactly what bible prophecy says …

Terror grips Ebola-hit west Africa

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and plagues

There are many, many potentially dangerous diseases still floating about which can at any time produce a deadly outbreak, (such as these article below attest to).  But with modern infrastructure and medical response teams in place, (eg the CDC), these outbreaks can be contained very quickly.  However destroy the infrastructure, (perhaps by way of war), and suddenly pandemics could easily sweep through major population centers, taking many lives in its path.  Just as bible prophecy warns of for the coming Tribulation.

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

Coming Soon, Maybe: 'Knowledge Pills' That You Eat To Automatically Learn Anything

Prophecy Sign:  The increase in knowledge

Who wouldn't want to swallow a pill and wake up the next morning fully versed in the subject of their choice?  So much for the need for several years of post-secondary education, (look at the money you'd save).  But designing children based on a pre-selected set of criteria, (looks, intelligence, strength)?  That sounds like something straight from a dystopic novel or movie about the future, (eg the movie 'Gattaca'). If left unchecked that is exactly where the world is heading.

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12:4 KJV

Christians in Israel ask EU to stop ‘Christian ethnic cleansing’ in Arab countries

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing persecution of Christians

Christians, (and especially bible believing Christians), are under attack all across the globe.  While some Christians fear for their lives and many perish due to terrorism and targeted attacks, other Christians suffer basic hatred and marginalization.  More and more the secular media in the West is castigating the so called "fundamentalist"  God of conservative Christianity and are heaping hatred on a God who would be so horrible as to judge sin.  According to these writers, people are searching for a god or a Jesus who doesn't judge there lifestyles or their sin, (the Jesus of the bible does in fact call upon everyone to come to him....even in their sin.....but then requires a change of heart and a repentance from that sin).

We find it very interesting and totally confusing that it would be the current President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, who is the one promising to defend Christians from persecution around the world…

14 earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma since Friday

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes in diverse places

Swarms of earthquakes in the centre of America and in Northern Chile have geologists concerned. While the earthquakes in Oklahoma might be the result of oil exploration, there is no guarantee of that. There are plenty of fault lines running across America that could be the location for future large disastrous earthquakes. And then there is Chile where geologists are very concerned that the 300+ quakes in recent days is the harbinger of something far larger.  In fact Chile has been the epicentre of some of the largest earthquakes in recorded history.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

14 earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma since Friday

Belgian doctors open discussion of involuntary euthanasia

Prophecy Sign:  An increasingly depraved society - the days of Noah

For the proponents of euthanasia that said that it was silly for us conservative bible believing types to suggest that legalizing euthanasia would become a slippery slope......well the slope is looking just a little greasy and a whole lot slippery in Belgium.  Doctors there are suggesting that they should have the ability to judge when someone should be put to death, whether expressed by the patient or not, whether they are suffering or not. Welcome to the new world order of things.

Meanwhile the entire world continues to slide down the slippery slope of depravity, (homosexual sex ed courses in schools, transgendered teachers, aborted babies burned in incinerators to heat hospitals, human body parts traded on the black market).  We can't possibly be far removed from what things were like pre-flood.  Remember the words of Jesus as he warned the last days would be like the days of Noah, (Matthew 24:37).

UK Schools 'Being Taken Over by Radical Muslims'

Prophecy Sign:  The rise of Islam?

There are several bible prophecy teachers that believe that Islam will be the future false religious system that will take over the world, (Perry Stone, Joel Richardson, Walid Shoebat).  They believe the Antichrist will be a Muslim and the world will be forced at the point of a sword to bow down to this Islamic Antichrist or die.

For various reasons, we have some doubts about this particular interpretation, but it surely can be said that as the antithesis of Christianity, Islam will be used by Satan as a force to do much carnage and damage to the non-Islamic world.  In fact, many European nations are fast becoming Islamic with some trend watchers seeing full conversions of these nation to Islamic nations in only a few short decades.  Already Britain, who turned her back on the God of the bible decades ago, is seeing the signs of this conversion to another god of fortresses.

Funny how the progressive liberal mindset that welcomed the Islamist into their …

Chorus of Israeli voices renews calls for Iran strike

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East Wars, (Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, Jeremiah 49)

Voices in Israel are renewing calls for a strike on the Iranian nuclear facilities, feeling that the world will do nothing but sell out Israel and allow Iran to continue to pursue its goal of entering the nuclear weapons club. When you have Arab lawmakers calling for the massacre of Jews, can you blame Israel for being just a little paranoid? Israel feels she can trust no one, (including the Obama administration), and continues preparatory military training for future wars with her Arab neighbours, (Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinians).

God will see to it that those enemies of Israel that hold to this ancient hostility and hatred will be severely punished for calling for bloodshed and massacre of the Jews.

Because you harbored an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax, therefore as surely as I live, decla…

Crimea crisis: Nato's top military commander calls for allies to mobilise after Russia prepares 'incredible force' on Ukrainian border

Prophecy Sign:  Rumours of Wars

In one of our other blog entries of today, we noted a recent prophecy which predicted the current rise of Russia on the world scene, (article here).  While the prophecy is interesting, it is bible prophecy we look to which will tell us accurately of future events.  Those events include the rise of a northern power which makes its presence felt in the last days, and we are also warned of wars and rumours of wars. Just so happens that Russia is helping to fulfil both of those prophecies in its current aggressive stance towards Eastern Europe. However, Russia is not the only news maker on the scene as the North Koreans continue to sabre rattle with South Korea, (and anybody else who might be in the way).

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Mark 13:7 NIV
