Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of June 14 - June 21, 2017

My goodness what a week of headlines.  When bible prophecy watchers talk about the convergence of end-times prophecies they mean that everything Jesus and the Prophets/Apostles warned of for the last days are all beginning to fulfill at the same time.

Just look at some of the news from this week alone and consider them against what bible prophecy told us to look for:

1)  The world is once again pushing for the restart of peace talks between Israel and the many. You can read about this in the Book of Daniel.

2)  Israel is ready for an all-out war with her immediate Arab neighbors.  Psalm 83 may or may not be a look in to the future about such a war, (we think it is).

3)  Israel has recently come into vast riches under the seas, (natural gas) which she is looking to sell to the Europeans.  Might this be a hook that will draw in the enemies of Israel looking to take a spoil?, (Ezekiel 38)

4) Europe may have found a new savior in the recently elected President of France, (Emmanuel Macron), and Europe is looking to build its very own army.  Sounds an awful lot like Revived Rome and the Antichrist.  (Not saying this is indeed the case, but it is very interesting nonetheless).

5)  Governments of the world are increasing their surveillance powers, (which means less liberty and freedoms for you), and implementing new biometric identification systems.  Sounds like the necessary technology of the "Mark of the Beast" to us.

6)  The phrase "World War Three" is on the lips of many as the world slides towards war in a variety of geo-political locations.  Certainly this can be described as rumors of war,

7)  There is violence all across the globe as groups rise against other groups.  From religious clashes, (Islam against everybody), to political clashes, (left vs right).  Seems the means to solve your perceived issues is to shout down or beat the other person into submission, (if not outright kill them).

8)  Disclosure and the existence of Alien entities is being sought out by governments, religious groups and others with the hopes than these Alien beings will be our saviors,  Is this the strong delusion that will convince the world to believe the lie of Antichrist?

9)  There has been an increase in earthquake and volcanic activity the world over.  Is the vast Yellowstone Super volcano waking up?  Should that one erupt there won't be much left of Western North America.

10)  The race to redesign humanity by way of genetics and/or technology is well underway.  Will this be the means by which Satan will ensnare humanity and which will cause those who take his mark to be totally unredeemable to a Holy God? (Revelation 14:9-10)

11)  Society is collapsing into outright depravity as all things LGBTQ are held in high esteem and all things Biblical Christian are held in derision.

12)  And last but not least, the world is being warned of any numbers of ways we could be destroyed;  From wayward asteroids to searing heat.  From chemical warfare to nuclear annihilation.  Not to mention drought/weather calamities, the mass deaths of animal/fish/birds, and disease/plagues.  All things we read about in bible prophecy that has been warned of for the coming days of Jacobs Troubles, (The Tribulation).

Are things in this world falling apart or coming together just as prophesied? I guess that all depends on which side of the grace of God you are. For the believer in Jesus Christ, we were warned of these days, but also told not to be worried. Specifically we were told that when we see these things begin to happen to 'look up', as Christs return would be at hand.

When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28

We were also told that as believers we would not be on this world at the time of 'The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord', but would be 'kept from the wrath of God'.

Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. Revelation 3:10

Knowing these things we are to comfort and encourage one another as the day approaches.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

Until next week, Maranatha.

Are Advancements in Artificial Intelligence Sowing the Seeds of Humanity’s Annihilation?

The most avid believers in artificial intelligence are aggressively secular – yet their language is eerily religious. Why?
……has described the singularity as a ‘mind fire’ of intelligence that could spread from our world and engulf everything in the Universe into its cyberspace computations; in this form, it represents a unity of all beings in a technological oneness that bypasses our understanding of intelligence, matter and physics.  When the singularity is conceived as an entity or being, the questions circle around what it would mean to communicate with a non-human creature that is omniscient, omnipotent, possibly even omnibenevolent.
