Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Feb 11 - Feb 17, 2018

So many things going on in this world these days.  It makes you want to look up, for our redemption is right around the corner.  Let's review:

To begin, a former Canadian Minister of Defence claims that there is indeed a cadre of elites, (politicians, oligarchs, media and entertainment icons and religious world leaders), that secretly control and run the world through various pan-global organizations, (Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations).  It is their intention to bring about a global one world government, with diminished nation state status, and complete open borders, (unhindered immigration).  They will do anything to achieve these goals including destroying and removing any politician that gets in the way.  The articles and video below attest to this fact as these global elites attempt to bring down both Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, (who stands in the way of complete capitulation to Palestine demands), and U.S. President, Donald Trump, (who stands in the way of global world government).  The bible has this to say about these conspirators:

The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, "Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles." The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:2-4 NIV

Just how close are we to a major Middle-East confrontation?  Could the much prophesied Middle-East war(s), (Ezekiel 38/39 Gog/Magog, Psalm 83 Arab Alliance), be ready to erupt?  Judging by the article headlines listed below, the answer to that question seems to be a resounding YES!.  Even the venerable New York Times has an article entitled 'The Middle East's Coming War".  And as one can see tensions are at an all-time high between Iran and Israel as Iran continues its buildup of proxies on Israel's border in both Syria and Lebanon.  At the same time this is happening, Iran, Turkey and Russia gravitate together, (the Gog/Magog coalition).

Not so very long ago, people were still bouncing along in horse and buggy.  Now the world is at a point where it is being suggested that for the sake of saving mankind, we will all need to merge with artificial intelligence and or genetically manipulate our DNA  to become a human hybrid.  We suggest reading the article, (see below), entitled 'Artificial Intelligence and the coming Global Empire' to understand where this is all heading as the world is about to enter into the Tribulation period.

Some of the prophecies that Jesus gave to his inquisitive disciples, (Olivet discourse), included such things as increasing earthquake activity, pestilence and plagues, and wild weather swings, (roaring/tossing waves).  And boy are we seeing those things playing out in recent daily news.  Scientists are concerned that major volcanic eruptions and the proverbial 'big one' earthquake are on the immediate horizon as epicenters across the globe show disconcerting major upswings in activity.  Other scientists are concerning themselves with the potential of global pandemics sweeping the planet in the very near future.  And finally, what's up with climate change and does this mean the contrived threat of global warming has come to an end?  Again the articles below seems to suggest just that, as climate scientists are backing off from the dire worst case warming scenarios and are warning instead that the world may be heading for another mini ice-age.  Has there been a topic of conversation over the last 20 years that has featured so much anguish and perplexity as 'climate change'?

"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

What about the church in the last days?  Will it be growing, apostate, persecuted or riding along on the back of the beast of globalism?  Or perhaps all of the above?  We think the latter as one can see great persecution happening to the church in the Islamic world not too mention growing persecution in China.  At the same time, in much of the Western World a giant chunk of the church has indeed become the Laodicean, itching ears, lukewarm stand for nothing church of the Last Days.  However, Jesus Christ continues to build his church and that means in some areas of the world, the church continues to grow in abundance.  And finally, we see the current Pope working with the communist regime in China in placing the Catholic Church under the foot of Chinese government officials.  Hey that sounds exactly like what will happen during the coming Tribulation when the 'woman will ride the beast' (false religious system will work in conjunction with the new kingdom of Antichrist).

And finally this world continues to circle the drain of depravity and societal collapse of biblical norms.  Just reading on a daily basis of the growing alphabet soup of sexual immortality, ( LGBTQ), turns ones stomach and confirms just what the book of Revelation indicates the mindset of the world will be during the Tribulation as people of that time will continue to engage in their sexual revolution:

The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts. Revelation 9:20-21 NIV

So keep on the narrow road, and keep looking up.  Be comforted in the fact that Jesus Christ has promised us that we, (the Bride of Christ), will not be around when the Wrath of God Almighty is rolled out on this unrepentant world.

For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 NIV

God willing, we will see you next week.

Prophecy Sign:  The future One World Government, (and those behind it)

The 'Illuminati' is real and secretly running our world claims former defence minister
A former defence minister has sensationally claimed the legendary Illuminati is REAL and secretly running world affairs from behind the scenes. Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian Minister of Defence, is believed to be the highest-ranking former politician to come out as a believer of the popular conspiracy theory.

These elites want to control the message:

Soros Calls on EU to Regulate Social Media to Fight Populism

They definitely want to get rid of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in order to facilitate their desired Middle-East two state peace deal

Police said to recommend Netanyahu be indicted for bribery, breach of trust

Artificial Intelligence and the Coming Global Empire
So why does all this matter? Because two thousand years ago the Bible said a single government will rule all the people of the world (Revelation 13:7). It also said the leader of that government will exercise such total control he’ll be able to decide who can buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). Think about those statements. A global government will have total and complete control over all commerce. To achieve this feat requires a police state the likes of which the world has never seen. Was such a state possible in the 1st Century? No. Was it possible in the 20th Century? No. How about in this century? Yes. It will be. And it won’t just be a possibility. It will be reality. Government won’t be able to resist the temptation AI offers. It’s just one more sign we’re nearing the end of the present age.

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Feb 4 - Feb 10, 2018

So are you convinced?  Does it appear that we are very near to the end of the current dispensation of time, (the Church/Bride of Christ)?  We here at this blog most certainly are convinced and hence the reason for this blog site which you are presently visiting.

There is just so much going on in this world of ours which many prophecy watchers have called a convergence of signs.  There are not just one or two signs presently occurring but a litany of events which point to the soon return of Jesus Christ.  Now of course we don't know God's timing or things;  It could be that the last trumpet, (1 Corinthians 15:52), will sound today or tomorrow calling home the followers of Jesus Christ, or perhaps there is still another decade or two of stage setting yet to occur before that great day happens.  Judging by what we have seen over the last weeks and months, that trumpet blast might well occur a whole lot sooner than later.

Both the Middle-East and Asia seem right on the precipice of war.  This would be a game changer as we believe any major war, especially one that would be considered a third world war, would be a prerequisite event, (aside from the rapture), to a series of things to happen right afterwards.  We could expect a major shakeup in the global economic situation, a giant push for the establishment of world government and a coming together of the religions of the world to achieve this goal.  We would also expect calls from all the nations and people of the world for peace and safety, especially with respect to the conundrum that is Israel and the Middle-East.

There is a chart which we have featured on this blog several times before, but not recently.  This chart compares the coming of Antichrist with the second coming of Jesus Christ.  And when you analyze the events now ocurring in this world one can see the stage is very nearly set for the emergence of this evil ruler that we Christians know as the Antichrist, (the False Christ).  Many religions and globalist organizations of the world have their own name for a messianic figure to come, (Mahdi, Maitreya, Messiah, The Grey Champion), and have great expectations that this powerful individual will bring prosperity, peace, safety and justice to this world presently being rocked by an assortment of seemingly irreconcilable issues.

To the world, when events begin to take place that rock this place to the core, (wars, economic collapse, civil strife, etc), and when this person appears out of the morass with what appears to be the answers to all the problems, it will appear to this world that it has come through the "Tribulation" and a golden age is on the horizon.  However, nothing could be further from the truth.  It will be exactly the opposite as the world will be heading for a time unprecedented in human history.

How awful that day will be! No other will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it. Jeremiah 30:7 NIV

For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled again. Matthew 24:21 NIV

They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?" Revelation 6:17 NIV

So just look at the prophetic signs listed below which are racing towards fulfillment.  Everything from major world wars on the near horizon, Jerusalem at the center of world attention, the giant strides being taken towards the establishment of both world government and the global false religious system, (that will ride the beast of world government until she is destroyed).  

Then there is the exponential increase in knowledge, especially the technology that we believe will see the rise of the Image of the Beast, (Artificial Intelligence),  the Mark of the Beast, (Genetics), and the Kingdom of Antichrist and his ability to control the entire world, (Quantum computing).  Several emanate secular scientists fear that technology such as A.I and quantum computing will be the end of humanity.  They could not be more correct as even Jesus said that if not for his intervention, there would be no survivors:

"If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:22 NIV

In the meantime, this world is becoming ever more godless and ever more depraved as society continues to descend into a moral cesspool.  Sorry to bring you down with all these signs, but for those of us in the know, we are convinced that when things look at their worst, we look upwards confidently with the knowledge that Jesus Christ is at the door.  Ready to make history again.

Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Matthew 24:33 NIV

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

So be comforted that Jesus Christ is on the way very soon.  God willing, we will see you next week.

Pope Francis Prays Towards Mecca, States: Islam is Religion of Peace, Europe Should Open Borders to Muslims
“It is essential that all citizens – Muslim, Jewish and Christian – both in the provision and practice of the law, enjoy the same rights and respect the same duties,” the pope added. “They will then find it easier to see each other as brothers and sisters who are travelling the same path, seeking always to reject misunderstandings while promoting cooperation and concord. Freedom of religion and freedom of expression, when truly guaranteed to each person, will help friendship to flourish and thus become an eloquent sign of peace.”

Worries Rise as Pope and China Edge Closer to Deal on Bishops
But as signs of a possible breakthrough have emerged — how bishops get ordained has long been a sticking point — some Catholics are worried. They fear that the Vatican, in its eagerness for a deal, could betray clerics and parishioners who have illicitly practiced their faith for decades and risked arrest and persecution by worshiping in the so-called underground church. They are also alarmed that a deal could end the independence for which the underground church has long stood.

Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the United States of America has “a distorted vision of the world” and Americans must be ruled by a world government, as soon as possible, “for their own good.” The Pope made the observation in an interview with La Repubblica reporter Eugenio Scalfari.

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global surveillance/police state, (Kingdom of Antichrist)  

Rapid response will be central to new French anti-fake news law
“This new law will establish new responsibilities for the different media platforms, which will have to cooperate with the state and be transparent about their sponsored content. A judicial procedure will be put in place to allow rapid blocking of the dissemination of fake news once it has become manifest.”
