Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Sep 3 - Sep 9, 2017

On August 21 the moon crossed in front of the sun causing a solar eclipse to appear from one coast of America to the other. In ancient cultures, a solar eclipse was perceived as a sign of impending doom or judgement. Now we aren't going to categorically state that the August 21 eclipse was a sign of impending judgement, but where does coincidence end and something else begin?

Since the eclipse we have had not one, not two, not even three but four major hurricanes impact North America. Harvey of course caused billions of dollars of damage over Texas; Katia has just finished pummeling the Mexican gulf coast, and Irma, after mowing through the Caribbean, is about to do the same to the state of Florida, while Jose is ready to swing through the Caribbean devastating islands already destroyed by Irma.

Besides the hurricanes, an event that would have otherwise been in the news longer than a few minutes would have been the very large 8.1 magnitude earthquake that struct the Pacific coast of Mexico killing over 60 people and causing millions of dollars worth of damage. This was the largest earthquake in Mexico in over a century setting up concerns that a similar earthquake could strike California at any time, (article below).

And then there is the continued wildfire situation in western North America. Now most of these fires began prior to August 21, but many others started afterwards including the major fire near Los Angeles. To date, there has been nearly 3 millions acres burned in our home province of British Columbia, with another 1 million acres burned in the state of Montana, with hundreds of thousands more acres consumed in the states of Washington, Idaho, Oregon and California costing hundred of millions of dollars in firefighting costs, with thousands of people having to be evacuated from their homes. Of course these fires pale in comparison to the millions of evacuees that have had to leave their homes in Florida and Texas, and the hundreds of billions of dollars that these storms will cost in damages.

It would seem that God may be trying to get our attention as we move precipitously close to the time of Jacobs Trouble, (Jeremiah 30:7), or that which we know as the Tribulation. There was a song written in 1969 by John Fogerty that became a hit for the group Creedance Clearwater Revival. John Fogerty noted that he got the imagery for this song from an old movie called 'The Devil and Daniel Webster' He said that 'it was about the apocalypse that was going to be visited upon us'.

Now the song is of course secular in nature, but given the current events that we have seen in the last couple of weeks, a Christian group could not have written a more pertinent song which speaks of the times we are now living in, (the birth pangs?). We do take issue with the song's warning to be prepared to die; Rather we suggest that now is time to prepare to live, and that would be living an eternal life by making the decision to accept Jesus Christ as your person saviour here and now before the world moves into the Tribulation period where indeed many billions will perish during that intensely horrible period of time.




Of course there is much else occurring in the world other than so called 'acts of God'. One of the most frightening being the growing tensions between North Korea and the United States/South Korea. There are many that see World War 3 on the very near horizon, (rumors of war). A couple articles we have linked to have much to say about this geopolitical hotspot. Well known Israeli writer, Caroline Glick, explains what is happening and makes the case that the United States has no choice but to eventually engage North Korea in a military confrontation:

North Korea’s ultimatum to America - (an excellent summation of this very charged situation)
http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/267787/north-koreas-ultimatum-america-caroline-glick

The second article gives a very good summation of just what could happen if such a military campaign is entered into. Needless to say it would cost many lives, sink the world economy and result in a devastation on both sides of the DMZ diving the two Korea's.

http://nationalpost.com/news/world/weve-never-been-closer-to-a-north-korean-attack-on-south-korea-heres-what-could-happen

Of course there is also the ongoing tensions in the Middle-East that will eventually erupt into war, (Ezekiel 38/39, Isaiah 17). Israel prepares for war while Iran continues to agitate with bellicose bluster, threatening to wipe out Israel.

As for other events happening, well you can check out those for your self by scanning the links below. There is everything from the building of the New Economic World Order of the Antichrist, to the building of the future genetic/transhumaism revolution which we see becoming a significant component of the future 'mark of the Beast', (corrupting the image of God).

So keep looking up.  Times are short, and our Lord Jesus Christ is nearly ready to snatch his Bride from this earth, (1 Thessalonians 4:17), prior to the coming judgement of God upon an unrepentant planet. Are you ready for this event?  If not, now is the excepted day of salvation, (2 Corinthians 6:2). Don't delay.

See you next week.

Another Climate Alarmist Admits Real Motive Behind Warming Scare
One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole," said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015. So what is the goal of environmental policy? "We redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy," said Edenhofer.

Prophecy Sign: Increased Knowledge - Genetics/Transhumanism/Artificial Intelligence 



Who's afraid of transhumanism? (We all should be)
But the fundamental ambition of transhumanism is more problematic. Its architects champion a use of technology to accelerate the evolution of humanity so radically that at the end of the process humanity as such would disappear. A superior posthuman being would emerge.
