Russia, China plan war games, arms sales. Could alliance be in the cards?

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War

Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. Revelation 6:4 NIV
Russia, China plan war games, arms sales. Could alliance be in the cards?
Russia and China are planning to hold large-scale joint naval drills in the Mediterranean and Pacific next year, as deepening economic and political cooperation appear to be driving the two giants to at least discuss the idea of forming a military bloc. Both countries are rapidly jacking up their military spending and modernizing their forces. China is set to spend an unprecedented $132 billion of defense this year. Meanwhile, Russia is in the midst of a sweeping five-year $700-billion rearmament program, and has lately begun restoring Soviet-era bomber patrols across much of the West's airspace. Russian officials say the upcoming naval drills are designed to demonstrate that Russian and Chinese f…

Banking culture breeds dishonesty, scientific study finds

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Evil men will get worse and worse

Both their hands are equally skilled at doing evil! Officials and judges alike demand bribes. The people with influence get what they want, and together they scheme to twist justice. Micah 7:3 NLT
But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13 NLT
Banking culture breeds dishonesty, scientific study finds A banking culture that implicitly puts financial gain above all else fuels greed and dishonesty and makes bankers more likely to cheat, according to the findings of a scientific study. Researchers in Switzerland studied bank workers and other professionals in experiments in which they won more money if they cheated, and found that bankers were more dishonest when they were made particularly aware of their professional role. When bank employees were primed to think less about their profession and more about normal life, however, they were less inclined to dishonesty. http…

Cornered but unbound by nuclear pact, Israel reconsiders military action against Iran

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars - Iran, (Elam)

This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might. I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam's exiles do not go. Jeremiah 49:35-36 NIV
Cornered but unbound by nuclear pact, Israel reconsiders military action against Iran
Historic negotiations with Iran will reach an inflection point on Monday, as world powers seek to clinch a comprehensive deal that will, to their satisfaction, end concerns over the nature of its vast, decade-old nuclear program. But reflecting on the deal under discussion with The Jerusalem Post on the eve of the deadline, Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provide…

Israel fears EU Parliament will recognize Palestine

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Dividing the Holy Land
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:2 NIV
Israel fears EU Parliament will recognize Palestine
The European Parliament plans to hold a vote on Thursday on a resolution to recognize a Palestinian state, following Sweden’s official decision to do so and symbolic votes in Spain, the UK and Ireland. The moves reflect mounting frustration in the EU at Israel's expanding settlement program on land the Palestinians want for a state following the collapse of US-sponsored peace talks.  Israel is working to foil the decision, with officials warning that if the motion passes, the country will view Europe’s decision as anti-Israeli. The parties behind the initiative are the Socialists and Democrats Group (S&D) and the Unified European Left Party (GU…

The era of global government?

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming one world government 

He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.  The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:23-24 NIV
The era of global government?
It's not just the G20 group of world leaders who are meeting. Also here are the heads of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. There's also the associated organisations, such as the B20 (business), C20 (civil society), L20 (labour), T20 (think tanks), and Y20 (youth). With politicians, businesses, NGOs, labour groups, thinkers and the young, these look like the elements that could make up a future global government. Of course, we're not at that stage and may never get there. But, what has become evident is …

Death should be optional

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The increase in knowledge - Transhumanism
During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. Revelation 9:6 NIV
Death should be optional
As a non-scientist I am not qualified to evaluate scientific claims about what science can and cannot do. What I can say is that plausible scenarios for overcoming death have now appeared. This leads to the following questions: If individuals could choose immortality,  should they? Should societies fund and promote research to defeat death? The question regarding individuals has a straightforward answer: We should respect the right of autonomous individuals to choose for themselves. If an effective pill that stops or reverses aging becomes available at your local pharmacy, then you should be free to use it. Or if, as you approach death, you are offered the opportunity to have your consciousness transferred to a younger, cloned body, a genetically engineered body, a robotic body…

Bill to have all Russians fingerprinted and DNA profiled submitted to parliament

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming 'Mark of the Beast' ID system
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
Bill to have all Russians fingerprinted and DNA profiled submitted to parliament
MPs from the populist nationalist party LDPR have prepared and drafted a motion requiring universal fingerprinting and DNA profiling of all Russian citizens for reasons of security. The main sponsor of the bill is Roman Khudyakov, known for previously wanting the urban population of the country, including visitors and foreigners, to be fingerprinted. This time the lawmaker opted for the “biometrical registration” of all Russians, which essentially means fingerprinting and DNA-profiling of everyone. The information would be held in a central government database and each…

Climatologist: 30-Year Cold Spell Strikes Earth

Prophecy Sign:  Anguish and perplexity at the anomalous weather patterns So while the truly fanatical adherents still pound the drums of global climate change, some real scientists have come to the conclusion that its all about that big ole glowing disc in the sky. The amount of solar activity that our sun generates has far more to do with global climate change that anything mankind can do.  But still the howls of protest and anguish are uttered from the fanatical climate change zealots as they drive themselves mad with the thought that the world is doomed to destruction.

Meanwhile in the real world, the winters are getting worse and we may be entering another long period of global cooling, (just as existed back in the 1970's).

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke 21:25 NIV
The tempest comes out from its chamber, the cold from the driving winds. The breath of God produces …

Global terrorism on rise: Fivefold increase in terror-related deaths since 2000

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times in the last days Time have changed, have they not?  Who would have believed mere decades ago that schools would be practicing lockdown scenarios in order to be prepared for the day when some ragingly insane shooter walked through the halls with gun in hand shooting everything in sight.  And then we have the nations of the earth all locking down their respective nations to protect from acts of terrorism.

These days are indeed becoming ever more perilous and terror filled, just as bible prophecy warned would happen.

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


People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:26 NIV
Global terrorism on rise: Fivefold increase in terror-related deaths since 2000
Almost 18,000 people were killed in terrorist attacks in 2013, a 61 percent increase from the 2012. Four terrorist groups, the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, the T…

The Dangers of the Temple Mount

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The battle for Jerusalem, (and the land of Israel) 
Events are quickly moving the Middle-East to yet another major war fought between Israel and her Arab neighbors.  The events of the last days will revolve around Israel and will see many battles fought including the Psalm 83 war, the Gog/Magog war and culminating in the battle of Armageddon. The God of Israel will deal with her envious neighbors who seek the destruction of the Jewish state for the purpose of taking over all the land currently occupied by 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
The Dangers of the Temple Mount
The Old City of Jerusalem is that fortunate one-third of a squ…

3 Of The 10 Largest Economies In The World Have Already Fallen Into Recession – Is The U.S. Next?

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse - and reset
Many economists are nervously watching the coming months with expectation that something serious is about to happen to the global economic system.  Most expect a crash much greater than what the world saw in 2008.  Incidentally that would be exactly 7 years, (one Shemitah cycle), between economic crashes.  For more information in just what the Shemitah is we would refer you to this video featuring Jonathan Cahn.

It will take a full-scale economic crash to bring about the right conditions to implement the final global economic system of the Antichrist and the 10 world kings/kingdoms that will administer it, (Revelation 17).  That will be the global economic world order that God will destroy during the coming Tribulation period.

The time has come! The day has arrived! Let not the buyer rejoice nor the seller grieve, for my wrath is on the whole crowd. The seller will not recover the property that was sold-- as long as both …

Pope Francis plans to visit United States next year

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global religious system and the False Prophet The signs of the last days global false religious system are all about us these days, (see video below), with the prototype of the False Prophet, (Pope Francis), hard at work pulling the pieces together to formulate what the bible refers to as 'Mystery Babylon', (Revelation 17).

Its likely that the Roman Catholic Church will only be part of this global ecumenical monstrosity and the Pope just one of many world religious leaders that bring their various faith systems into compliance with the Harlot of last days bible prophecy.

Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.  It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. Revelation 13:11-12 NIV
Pope Francis plans to visit United States next year
Pope Francis announced on Monday he wo…

Iran: All Set To Dominate Middle East

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars - Iran One of the major adversaries towards Israel that will emerge in the last days is that of Iran, (Persia/Elam).  Iran, (Persia), will align itself with a Russian led, Islamic alliance that will come against Israel in the last days Gog/Magog war, (Ezekiel 38/39).  Iran, (Elam), may also find itself at the short end of an encounter with the God of Israel who will deal with the Iranians for their animosity and hatred towards Israel.

I will shatter Elam, (Iran), before their foes, before those who want to kill them; I will bring disaster on them, even my fierce anger," declares the LORD. "I will pursue them with the sword until I have made an end of them. Jeremiah 49:37 NIV
Iran: All Set To Dominate Middle East
The Middle East is currently the arena for a cross-border sectarian war. The weakening or collapse of repressive regimes has unleashed a fierce war for succession between rival populations, with Shia and Sunni Arabs …

How Safe Are the Jews of Europe?

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing isolation and hatred of the Jews
Israel and Jerusalem will come under attack by the nations of the world.  Throughout bible prophecy we read of future events involving both the temple mount, (Revelation 11), the land of Israel, (Joel 3), and the city of Jerusalem, (Zechariah 12 & 14).  In order for all the nations of the world to come against Israel in the last days, then it must be that all nations of the world become increasing hate-filled towards the Jews and the Jewish state.

Among those nations you will find no repose, no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the LORD will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life. Deuteronomy 28:65-66 NIV
How Safe Are the Jews of Europe?
A new study by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (a London-based research organization, which conducted the survey on behalf of the Fundam…

Putin's War Games Are Setting Off Alarms Worldwide

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Wars and rumors of Wars
A good many bible prophecy scholars have concluded that Russia is the Land of Magog spoken of in Ezekiel's prophecy, (chapters 38 & 39), which is of a great battle that will occur in the last days.  We do not know for sure of Magog's identity or that of its leader Gog, but with Russia's recent increase in provocative global activity and alliance building in the Middle-East,  it would not be a great stretch to suggest Russia and Putin fit the bill.

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. Matthew 24:6 NIV
Putin's War Games Are Setting Off Alarms Worldwide
Russia’s military is engaging in “dangerous brinkmanship,” according to a new report documenting dozens of recent incidents in which Russian warplanes and ships have taken aggressive or provocative actions, often in locations far away from the fighting in Ukraine. The report by the Eu…

Russia Sends More Convoys Into Ukraine as Cease-Fire Collapses

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War
What's up with Vladimir Putin and the Russians these days?  Not a day goes when yet another report surfaces telling us the the Russians are busily preparing for something or engaging in more provocative moves which will only stir up yet more unsettled nerves.  Seems the Russians have a new toy with which they completely shut down the vaunted Aegis defence system which protects American warships, (that should cause some concern at the Pentagon don't you think?), and the Russians are also sending more convoys towards Ukraine.   Rumors of War!!

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
Russia Sends More Convoys Into Ukraine as Cease-Fire Collapses
Russian officials announced on Wednesday plans to send a seventh convoy across the border into Ukraine’s war-torn Donbas region, amid widespread accusations that the Kremlin is sending arms to separatist forces instead of a…

Abbas: We won’t let Israeli extremists ‘contaminate’ Temple Mount; warns of global ‘religious war’

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars - Jerusalem/Temple Mount As the world continues to pressure Israel to the acceptance of yet another radical Arab Muslim nation on its border, (that being any new state called Palestine), the radicals all over the Islamic world are getting more and more bent out of shape that the Israelis have control over Jerusalem.  Then you also have some Jewish leaders looking to advance religious freedom on the Temple Mount, (which are fighten words for the Islamists).

Even Jordan and Turkey, (who were both at ease with Israel up until recent years), are warning Israel over the Temple Mount issue and further construction in East Jerusalem).  Could this be the issue that galvanizes the Islamic world to action against the Jewish state?  We know that Jerusalem will be fought for during the coming Tribulation period.

I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. …

School Dumps Christmas, Easter

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian marginalization

It's pretty darn sad that a grade two student needs to take his school to court in order to be able to hand out candy canes at Christmas time which have a brief reference to Jesus attached to them.  But of course the next battle for the grade two student will be to keep the name "Christmas" on the school calendar for that two week stretch that kids take off at the end of December, (we must now call it "Winterfest"  - sigh!!!!).  Christianity is being marginalized in this post Christian secular society of ours as even many who call themselves "Christian" never dare to set foot in a church.

There are those who turn justice into bitterness and cast righteousness to the ground. Amos 5:7 NIV
School Dumps Christmas, Easter There’s a new battleground in the war on Christmas – the suburbs of our nation’s capital. The school board in Montgomery County, Maryland has decided to appease Muslims families by making …

Pope Francis: A new stage in relations between Catholics and Evangelicals

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming global religious system
Evangelical leaders, from Kenneth Copeland to Rick Warren, are all jumping on the Pope Francis bandwagon along with a merry band of religious leaders from an alphabet soup of world religions, (Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, Jewish, Sikh, Taoist - did we miss anybody??).  Seems the bible predicted such a thing would happen as all the religions of the world glad hand each other and formulate the coming global religious world order.

The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery: Babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth. Revelation 17:4-5 NIV
Pope Francis: A new stage in relations between Catholics and Evangelicals
In a meeting on Thursday with a delegation from the World Evangelical Alliance, Pope Francis expr…

Earthquake swarm may increase risk of the big one

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes in diverse places Hmmm.....earthquakes swarms in Nevada, earthquake swarms in Oklahoma, earthquake swarms in the Carolina's, earthquakes all along the central part of America.  Is God sending a warning?  There is great potential for huge destruction earthquakes all over North America, and all the recent swarms may be indicative of such.

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:7-8 NIV
Earthquake swarm may increase risk of the big one
An earthquake swarm about 40 miles southeast of Lakeview, Oregon is increasing in activity and intensity. While the seismic activity is happening in a secluded area centered off Nevada's northwest border, scientists are watching it closely. "It has been going for about five months now and it kind of goes in fits and spurts," said Dr. Graham Kent. Dr. Kent is the Director of the Ne…
