Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Jan 21 - Jan 27, 2018

Aside from the many news articles we see each week which pertain to such prophecy topics as rumors of war, increasing earthquake activity, knowledge increasing or a growing secular society, (societal collapse), we sometimes come across articles as those below.  They touch upon some prophetic topics which are difficult to pin down in their interpretation.  Often times there can be quite a bit of debate as to just what is being implied in the prophetic statement.  Case in point would be the first article noted below.  

When we read from the book of Daniel, we are told that the future Antichrist will attempt to change both times and laws.  This statement has rendered various ideas such as a Muslim Antichrist attempting to implement the Islamic calendar and holidays upon the world, or all the way to our own attempt to explain this strange prophecy, (What’s up with time during the Tribulation?).  

However maybe it will be something as simple as an attempt by science to redefine time itself at the behest of the future 'Man of Sin'.  Remember Satan hates God and everything he created, including time itself.

He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. Daniel 7:25 NIV

Facebook seeks to redefine time with 'flicks'
Seconds, minutes and hours won't become obsolete, but the social network giant has a new kind of clock for techies.

And of course as things get worse and worse in this world of ours, life seemingly becomes ever more perilous. To such an extent that according to the article below we are now just 2 minutes to midnight with a push to have those hands move to 90 seconds before midnight.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 Timothy 3:1 NIV

APOCALYPSE NOW? : Doomsday Clock moves forward to two minutes to ‘midnight’ bringing world closer to self-destruction than any time since the Cold War
Mounting concerns about the possibility of a nuclear war along with US President Donald Trump's "unpredictability" have pushed the symbolic time piece to two minutes before midnight, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists said today.

Or how about the last days prophetic passage from the book of Joel which describes an army like none other. An army which seems awfully like a that of droids and robots or as the article below suggests, perhaps it may be a Superhuman army of genetically modified soldiers.
They charge like warriors; they scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course. They do not jostle each other; each marches straight ahead. They plunge through defenses without breaking ranks. Joel 2:7-8 NIV

Top secret human testing in China to create SUPERHUMAN army in military revamp
China’s mission to create an army of superhumans is expanding at a worryingly fast pace as the country rapidly invests in its controversial genetics research and development programme, a new study has revealed.

And lastly we are also told that in the Last Days we would see signs in the cosmos. If you have been following this blog for the last several years, you will know that we have featured many of these signs, (Revelation 12, Blood Moon Tetrad, etc). The most recent of these signs is an upcoming 'Super Blue Blood Moon' to fall on the 31st of January. Pastor Mark Blitz in the video below briefly discusses this upcoming celestial sign and what it may mean for the future.
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


Super blue blood moon promises extremely rare treat on January 31
The Moon will put on quite the show at the end of the month, as a very rare, “super blue blood moon” will appear in the skies on January 31. A super blue blood moon happens when three different lunar events happen at once – a supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon combining to offer sky gazers a triple whammy of lunar treats.

Check out the article links below as there are some very interesting topics up for discussion. Could America be ready to send in a stealth strike against North Korea? Is the war on conservative online speech by Facebook, Twitter and Google leading us to a time when the future Antichrist will ban and remove all references to Jesus Christ? Is a major powerful earthquake about ready to strike along the West Coast of North America? All of this is happening at the same time that the political fight over little old Jerusalem is stirring up quite the consternation among the nations of the Earth.
So keep looking up. Time is short. Our Lord Jesus Christ is about to make an appearance in the clouds as he claims his Bride, (the Church|), to take home to a place prepared for her, (John 14:3).

Until next week, Maranatha.

And at the same time, there will be a few that will continue to enjoy their luxuries:
