Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Oct 8 - Oct 14, 2017

Some Christians would consider what we do here on this blog, (and what others do on similar websites) to be newspaper exegesis.  Which is to say filling in the blanks of bible prophecy by way of the news of the day.   We pray we are not doing that, but rather after reading and studying end-times prophecies and paying attention to Jesus when he said to watch for these signs, we are simply obeying his admonition:

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

How else would we know that things are taking place without seeing them reported upon in the many news sites around the world?  If not for cable news, newspapers, the internet, and other media outlets, there would be no way for Christian today to know that we are fast approaching the days of which the bible told us will come upon this unrepentant world.  

For instance when looking at the news from this week alone we see the following:

Rumors of War, (Matthew 24:6) - From Asia to Eastern Europe to the Middle-East this world of ours has never been so close to a world war three scenario which would likely include nuclear weapons

The Gog/Magog Alliance, (Ezekiel 38) - As American influence wains in the Middle-East,  Russia, (Magog), is taking over and forming up alliances with Turkey, (Beth Togarmah), and Iran, (Perisa). This alliance will soon turn its eyes upon little Israel.

Unprecedented weather events, (Luke 21:25) - All across the globe weather events which are being described as 'unprecedented' or 'never in our lifetime' type disasters, are occurring.  From massive hurricanes to wildfires, from floods to drought.  It seems there isn't a part of the world that has not been the victim of some form of strange weather anomaly in the last few months.  (Incidentally its snowing where we are right now which is unprecedentedly early and after a summer of extreme dry and forest fires)

Increase in Earthquake and Volcanic activity, (Matthew 24:7) - Take a look at the article links below.  It is amazing to see such apocalyptic warnings coming from the secular press over what may occur soon with regards to the recent upswing in earthquake and volcanic activity.  Warnings of mega-tsunamis and super-volcano eruptions which would result in millions of deaths.

Pestilence and Plagues,  (Revelation 6:8) - Again the secular press is warning of nation wide pandemics and a global antibiotic apocalypse which would result in many millions of deaths due to the inability to control these future pandemics. 

The One World Government, (Daniel 7 & Revelation 17) - The term 'New World Order' has been in our lexicon for several decades now as the globalists worked feverishly to implement their one world government agenda.  Then along came a major cog in the machinery by the name of Donald Trump, (article below).  Will the globalists attempt to launch world war three to bring about the necessary conditions for the next step in the plans?  (WW1 - League of Nations, WW3 - United Nations, WW3 - Unity of Nations??) 

The Image of the Beast,  (Revelation 13:14) - It is remarkable that now some in the scientific and publishing academia are thinking it a good thing to develop an artificial intelligent collective consciousness that would become like a God which mankind would worship.  Will this be the image of the beast, rather than some sort of clone of the man himself?

Technology for the Kingdom of Antichrist, (Revelation 13) - There has been an exponential growth in the necessary technology to bring about the fulfillment of such things as the future 'Mark of the Beast' ID system, (buy/sell), and the police/surveillance state which will have the ability to monitor and control every person on earth.  In last weeks blog entry we noted more than a dozen articles from around the world which indicate the many nations now working towards the establishment of national biometric identification cards that will control the citizens ability to participate in daily commerce and life.  This will soon be transferred from a plastic card to a permanent fixture on a persons body, (the Mark of the Beast).

Increasing Christian Persecution, (Matthew 24:9) - One of the articles below reports that Christian persecution is 'at an all time high' and 'worse than any time in history.'  

So these are just a few of the prophecies which tell us just how close we are to the end.  That we are indeed the last and terminal generation that will be around to see all that is to happen.  The generation that will soon be caught up with Jesus in the air as he comes a calling for his bride to be taken home to our new digs.  Are you ready?  We sincerely hope so.  So keep looking up. And God willing we will see you next week.

For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory. He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea. Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD. Psalm 102:16-18 NIV

Is This The Geopolitical Shift Of The Century?
The geopolitical reality in the Middle East is changing dramatically. The impact of the Arab Spring, the retraction of the U.S. military, and diminishing economic influence on the Arab world—as displayed during the Obama Administration—are facts. The emergence of a Russian-Iranian-Turkish triangle is the new reality. The Western hegemony in the MENA region has ended, and not in a shy way, but with a long list of military conflicts and destabilization.
