Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of April 23- April 29, 2017

Just what will happen on the Korean Peninsula remains anybodies guess.  The only one that knows for sure is the God of Heaven and he has not seen fit to inform those of us at this forum or anybody else for that matter.  All we have been told is that there would be "rumors of war" at the time of the end.

Speaking of which, the rumors are getting rather intense of late.  North Korea fired off another ballistic missile today, (Saturday), only to have it once again explode shortly after launch, This test flys in the face of the entire world who are nearly unanimous in their condemnation of the Hermit Kingdom's ongoing nuclear weapons program.  This includes North Korea's closest ally China who Kim Jong-un seems to be ignoring as much as any other nation, (which is not good).

Aside from the 'rumors of war' prophetic fulfillment of the North Korean situation, there are a couple other articles we saw this week that may well have prophetic implications for the future.  One article reported on the North Korean leadership approaching the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’, (ASEAN - article link below), looking for support in their fight with the United States. The book of Revelation tells us there will be a time when the 'Kings of the East', (Revelation 16:12), will come together and march towards  Har Megiddo, (Armageddon).  Given how quickly the geo-political world can change could it be that North Korea, along with China and the ASEAN nations, eventually make up this massive army known as the 'Kings of the East'? Remains to be seen.

In another article, (see below), the story reported on the concerns of Israel over the North Korean situation.  A top IDF officer expressed concern that a war between North Korea and the United States would leave Israel in a vulnerable position as the Americans would direct security and military resources from the Middle-East to Asia.  Israel would then be at the mercy of a cadre of militant enemies surrounding the Jewish State just looking for an opportunity to attack.  Perhaps the makings of a Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38/39 scenario?

In other news this week we read a very interesting article which reported on the growth of Israel and the percentage of all Jews in the world now living in the Jewish State.  At its inception, (1948), Israel only had slightly over 800,000 people and just 6% of all Jewry of the world.  Today the population of Israel is 8,700,000 and contains 43% of all Jews of the world with this percentage growing every year.  This is perhaps one of the most important prophetic fulfillments of our time. Bible prophecy eons ago told us that the Jewish State would be re-established at the end of days and that God would draw the Jews back to this nation from every corner of the world:

Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth. Isaiah 43:5-6 NIV

There are many other things happening aside from the North Korean and Middle-East rumors of war. One of which is the Beast Tech System, (a term devised by noted prophecy scholar Tom Horn), of both the Mark of the Beast Identification System and the Global Surveillance/Police State System. It will soon be possible to link humans directly with digital electronics including computers. This merging of machine and humans will link all humanity into the global collective. As the Borg of the Star Trek franchise used to say, "Resistance is Futile" Prepare to be assimilated

In addition to the hi-tech preparation to merge machine and humans is the genetic component to completely alter what God has created in mankind into a brand new, and therefor corrupted image of God. Transhumanists have every intention to recreate mankind into a super-human race of long lived beings with capabilities only presently known to exist in the animal kingdom, (exceptional hearing, eyesight, speed, strength, etc). And who may be the assistants to this development in the future? For many researchers it would be the return of our Ancient Alien progenitors, (not something we subscribe to). This scenario may eventually be the fulfillment of both the Strong Delusion of 2 Thessalonians 2:11 and the return of the Days of Noah, (Nephilim), of Matthew 24:37.

In somewhat of a dichotomy the Christian church is going in two directions. In the Western world much of the church is departing the true faith and turning towards doctrines of demons, (1 Timothy 4:1), or towards teachings that tickle the ears with easy and pleasing words, (2 Timothy 4:3). We read about this process in the book of Revelation as the church of Laodicea, (Revelation 3:14-22 - the last days Apostate Church). However there is another direction for the Church and that is in much of the remainder of the world, (often under persecution), which is the building of the Kingdom of God through the preaching of the Gospel to the ends of the earth, (Matthew 24:14).

As we see the weakening of biblical Church influence in our Western Society the opposite end of things is the exponential explosion of all things degenerate and very much anti-God, (the collapse of the Judea-Christian societal norms). We read about this process in 2 Timothy 3:15 where the Apostle Paul warns of what is to come for the last days as society collapses.

For those that still hold to the the truth and await the return of Jesus Christ, we can take solace in the words of the bible which we have rolled together in one statement which should give us great hope:

When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. We wait for the blessed hope--the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. Luke 21:28, Titus 2:13, 1 Thessalonian 4:17-18

And finally we noted the dumbest comment of the week which we featured at the end of this blog entry.  Check it out.  Until next week, keep looking up. It's getting closer with each passing day.

And how will this effect Israel?: 

Top IDF Officer:  North Korea tensions could impact Israel’s security
Ongoing tension between North Korea and the US could impact Israel’s security, a senior IDF officer told reporters at a special briefing held on Tuesday. The officer referred to the developing diplomatic rift between the US and the peninsula following North Korea’s recent and defiant attempts to extend its nuclear activity, despite repeated warnings from the West. He explained that Israel could bear the brunt of such an escalation in the relations between Washington and Pyongyang should it occur, because the US would have to divert security resources from the Middle East to Korea.
Could this lead to the coming together of the Kings of the East?:

Donald Trump’s warning of major conflict, as North Korea turns to Southeast Asian nations for support
North Korea has appealed to Southeast Asian countries for support in its row with the United States to prevent what it warned could be a “nuclear holocaust”. In a letter to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ secretary-general, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho warned the situation on the Korean Peninsula was “reaching the brink of war” because of Washington’s actions. He urged the ASEAN chief to inform the 10-nation organisation’s foreign ministers “about the grave situation” on the peninsula “and give them a proper proposal”, while criticising at length US-South Korean military exercises.
