Free speech or hate speech? Right-wing activists ‘banned’ from Britain

There are family health issues that need our attention here at this blog.  Thus there will be a lack of updates and postings here on the blog for the next week or two.  Please pray that God will provide healing and restoration in the days to come for our loved one.


Prophecy Sign:  Future Kingdom of Antichrist - Controlling the Message

What on earth is happening to Britain and the United Kingdom when it comes to free speech and the recent curtailment attempts to silence a contrarian viewpoint?  Read the articles below and of course watch the video.  Soon this will be the way of the world.

Free speech or hate speech? Right-wing activists ‘banned’ from Britain
Right-wing activists have been banned from entering the UK and held in ‘detention centers’, sparking a free-speech debate on the streets of London. Members of Generation Identity (GI) and Antifa clashed on Sunday. Border police held three high-profile members of GI just months after the group opened its UK wing. Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern were detained as they tried to make their way to London.

UK Bans Conservative Journalist For “Racist” Criticism of Islam

UK border authorities banned conservative journalist Lauren Southern from entering the country earlier today ostensibly because Southern had criticized Islam during a previous visit to the United Kingdom. Southern was detained by border police in Calais while attempting to enter the UK on a bus. Authorities singled her out, confiscated her passport, detained and interrogated her.

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

As we move into spring, there are many events developing that seem to go hand in hand with future bible prophecy.

When we look at Jerusalem, we see another attempt at bringing peace between Israel and her Palestinian neighbors.  American President, Donald Trump, will soon reveal his plan for peace which seems to be gaining support among some members of the Arab world, (namely Saudi Arabia).  This is significant in that the Saudi's can exert considerable pressure on the Palestinians to come to the table and work towards a deal.  It's also interesting that the Royal Family's, Prince William, is heading to Israel this coming summer which will be the first official Royal visit to Israel. There is some speculation that the Prince will be in Israel to drum up support for a 1937 British effort, (The Peel Commission), which advocated for a two state solution.  Might this be one of the first efforts that will eventually lead to the future Antichrist 'confirming' an already existing peace plan? (Daniel 9:27)

All these peace efforts and soon moving of the American embassy, (along with several other nations, eg, Guatemala, Czech Republic), to Jerusalem have the usual suspects in a raging lather.  Iran, Turkey and several other Islamic nations are adamant that this move will result in the end of Israel. A Turkish newspaper has called for Turkey to form a joint Islamic army, (the Gog/Magog alliance), to take out Israel once and for all.  And of course Iran has been threatening to wipe out the Jewish State for the last several years.  These two nations, (Turkey and Iran), along with Russia are quickly becoming best buddies as they arrange to hold summits together to ostensibly talk about Syria, but likely far more than that, (Middle-East affairs as it pertains to Israel).

Another item that we found interesting this week are all the recent articles pertaining to the soon disclosure that we are not alone in the universe.  That Aliens do exist and world governments have known about it for years.  Bible prophecy warns of a very strong delusion, (2 Thessalonians 2:11), that will be revealed during the coming Tribulation. This deception will have the power to convince the world that the Antichrist is the messianic figure all the religions of the world have been waiting for, and which the world now needs to worship as God.  What better delusion than the sudden appearance of Aliens from space for which the Ancient Alien hypothesis has been banging drums about in recent years; That these ancient beings are non other than our progenitors which created all world religions pointing to the coming of one man who would lead the world.  DO NOT BE deceived, as these are not our ancient alien brothers but demonic beings who work along Satan in his grand deception plans.

Check out the remainder of this weeks headlines as there is much happening and it suggests a convergence of signs pointing to the very soon return of Jesus Christ for his Bride, the Church.  Keep looking up as this big day is none too far away.

Maranatha and we will see you next week, (God willing),

Prophecy Sign:  Jerusalem - The Burdensome Stone - Zechariah 12)

New U.S. Embassy May Be in Jerusalem, but Not in Israel
The diplomatic compound that will serve as the American Embassy until a permanent site is found lies partly in a contested zone known as No Man’s Land. No Man’s Land encompasses the area between the armistice lines drawn at the end of the 1948-49 war and was claimed by Jordan and Israel. Israel won full control of it in the 1967 war, so the United Nations and much of the world consider it occupied territory. The State Department has avoided taking a clear position on the matter but relies on the fact that Israel and Jordan had informally divided the contested enclave.

Prince William's visit will advance the Jordan-Israel solution
Another Abbas demand in March 2017 that Britain apologise for the Balfour Declaration was swiftly rejected by the British Government. Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson - writing in the Daily Telegraph on 29 October 2017 – went even further: 
“I have no doubt that the only viable solution to the conflict resembles the one first set down on paper by another Briton, Lord Peel, in the report of the Royal Commission on Palestine in 1937, and that is the vision of two states for two peoples.”

Israeli and Saudi officials reportedly hold series of secret meetings in Egypt
Top Israeli and Saudi Arabian officials reportedly held a series of secret meetings in Cairo last week, ahead of US President Donald Trump’s expected unveiling of his long-awaited Middle East peace plan. A Palestinian Authority official told the UAE-based Al Khaleej Times on Friday that Egyptian officials were mediating talks that he described as “significant development” in the slowly warming ties between Jerusalem and Riyadh, a trend that he said was undermining the authority of the Ramallah-based Palestinian government.

This Is The Worst Purge Of Conservative Voices In The History Of The Internet
In recent weeks, we have witnessed an unprecedented social media crackdown on conservative voices.  YouTube’s war with Alex Jones has gotten the most attention, but literally hundreds of conservative content creators have had their accounts penalized, suspended or deleted by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants.  There appears to be a coordinated effort to target conservative viewpoints, because similar voices on the left are not receiving equal treatment.

He had been added to the Chinese Supreme Court’s list of “discredited” persons or entities, which usually targets people who refuse to repay debts.

Quantum Computers

Scientists reach 'significant milestone' in race to create the world's first quantum computer as they discover how to make atoms in silicon 'talk' to each other
The key to a quantum computer is its ability to operate on the basis of a circuit not only being 'on' or 'off', but occupying a state that is both 'on' and 'off' at the same time. While this may seem strange, it's down to the laws of quantum mechanics, which govern the behaviour of the particles which make up an atom. At this micro scale, matter acts in ways that would be impossible at the macro scale of the universe we live in. Quantum mechanics allows these extremely small particles to exist in multiple states, known as 'superposition', until they are either seen or interfered with. A good analogy is that of a coin spinning in the air. It cannot be said to be either a 'heads' or 'tails' until it lands.

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Feb 25 - March 3, 2018

Glancing at the audience numbers for this blog, we see that there has been a major upswing in visitors form the United Kingdom and France. Even many from Turkey, Germany and Russia. We are not quite sure the reason from this, but we thank God that this little blog and information contained is going out throughout all the world. It is our prayer that what is presented here will open the eyes of both Christians and non-Christians alike to the lateness of the hour which means the soon return of Jesus Christ. And if you are one of those who have not made a decision for Jesus Christ, well now is the time of salvation because Jesus does not want any to suffer the coming wrath of God Almighty, (The Great Tribulation), but to accept his offer of salvation by seeking forgiveness by way of repentance.

For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 NIV

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

In the meantime, the convergence of signs is coming together like no other time in history.

Turkey and Iran, (two major players in the future War of Gog/Magog - Ezekiel 38/39), are establishing themselves as powers in the Middle-East. These two power brokers will align themselves along with several other Middle-Eastern nations along with what many believe will be Russia in an invasion attempt of Israel. This invasion will not go well for these nations as God himself will destroy the invaders and send what's left running for home:

I will turn you around and drag you along. I will bring you from the far north and send you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will strike your bow from your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. Ezekiel 39:2-4 NIV

While the current Pope is out and about drumming up support for an ecumenical false religious system, many Catholics behind the scene are not so enamored with the current Pontiff. There are signs that Pope Francis may be under pressure to resign which makes one wonder if his successor may well become the False Prophet who will head up this future religious system which will initially work hand in hand with the Antichrist.

There are just so many rumors of war in the news these days. There doesn't seem to be a place on earth where there isn't some sort of saber rattling going on between nations. The major geopolitcal hot spots are of course, Asia, (China and North Korea), Eastern Europe, (Russia), and as mentioned earlier, the Middle-East, (Israel and her many neighboring enemies). A major eruption of hostilities in any of these regions would likely push the world into a World War 3 scenario. Such an event would play right into the hands of the globalist/elites as it would bring the world closer to global government and a new economic world order as everything we presently know would crash down around us because of another major world war.

Out of such a situation it would seem the most likely time for that often tried but every-time failed, Middle-East peace treaty. The Islamic nations after having lost big time to Israel in their collective invasion attempts will have not other option but to lick their wounds and come to an agreement for peace with Israel. This agreement will be the event that kicks off the seven year Tribulation period, (Daniel 9:27).

And what will this seven year period look like? Judging by the exponential growth in knowledge, it will be a global surveillance/police state where everything will be under the control of the future Antichrist. There will be no way to buy or sell without first taking his mark. An interesting article below suggest that RFID chips are a thing of the past, and genetic modification will be all the rage. It has been our belief for some time that this genetic alteration will play a significant role in what will eventual become the 'Mark of the Beast' The future Antichrist, (Satanically inspired), will demand that people become genetically identified with him and thus no longer the creation of God, (and therefore no longer having the ability to be reconciled to God).

A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. Revelation 14:9-10 NIV

Other components of this future hi-tech kingdom of Antichrist will include artificial intelligent robotics that can function on its own and be programmed to attack any and all who do not go along with the global program of the Man of Sin. He will likely have at his beck and call super-intelligent quantum computers that will be able to control everything from monitoring you daily activities to tracking your ability to buy and sell.

There are just so many other things presently happening as well, (open borders allowing for unregulated immigration, collapsing societal norms, fighting over the causes of perceived climate change). All these things have one thing in common; They can be used to push for a system of global governance and ultimately world government, (kingdom of Antichrist).

So as we say every week....keep looking up for your redemption draws very near. In the meantime know that God is in charge and we should comfort one another knowing this. Until next week. Maranatha

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Feb 18 - Feb 24, 2018

Some important news this week to be aware of when it comes to bible prophecy.

First off, there is a whole lot of build-up towards war in the Middle-East.  Israel vs Lebanon, Israel vs Syria, Israel vs Iran and even Iran vs Saudi Arabia.  The bible informs us that at the time of the end, there would be a series of Mid-East wars that seem to build to a crescendo.  Many prophecy experts believe the first of these conflicts would be another Israel against her immediate Arab neighbors and the Palestinians, (Psalm 83).  As can be seen in the headlines below, that confrontation seems almost imminent as Israel readies herself against the likes of Lebanon, Syria and the many tents of the Palestinians.  One article below suggests that a reason for this battle, (other than the hatred of the Jewish State by her Arab neighbors), are the offshore Mediterranean gas fields.  The dispute over who controls these gas fields may become a catalyst to war.  The Prophet Ezekiel may have even alluded to this fact:

Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, "Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder?"' Ezekiel 38:13 NIV

Most prophecy experts identify Sheba and Dedan in this passage as ancient locations of present day Saudi Arabia and in the prophecy listed above we can see that this nation group does not seem to be part of any attack on Israel.  Rather it sits back and makes diplomatic protests instead.  There may be a couple reasons for that.  Firstly, Iran and Saudi Arabia are not exactly friends;  In fact there is a good likelihood these two Middle-East powers could end up fighting a war between themselves.  And secondly, Israel and the Saudi's have been working together with the knowledge that Iran hates both the Israeli's and the Saudi's.  Remember the old expression here, 'They enemy of my enemy is my friend'.  Middle-Eastern geopolitics makes strange bedfellows.

Such a war, would then lead into a much larger fray, as Iran, Turkey and a number of other Muslim nations gather together in what is called the Gog/Magog war, (Ezekiel 38/39).  Iran absolutely hates Israel and would love nothing more than to wipe the Jewish State off the face of the earth.  The articles below certainly testify to that fact.

It is our belief that such Middle-East wars will occur first before any treaty of peace is to be agreed upon and signed off by the many Middle-Eastern nations, including Israel.  It will takes nothing less that a good smackdown against the enemies of Israel before they would ever agree to a covenant of peace.  It will be God himself that will protect his chosen nation/people, not for their sake alone but to restore his name among the nations of the world:

On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all your troops and the nations with you. I will give you as food to all kinds of carrion birds and to the wild animals. Ezekiel 39:4 NIV

I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel. Ezekiel 39:7 NIV

After being whipped and sent back home with their collective tails between their legs, the nations that came against Israel in war will have no choice but to accept a peace deal, (brokered by the future Antichrist).  It will be the acceptance and signing off on this seven year covenant that will kick off the Tribulation period.  Even now, there is much going on behind the scenes with regard to building a peace agreement that may be acceptable to both parties, (articles below).  This may become part of the covenant that the Antichrist and the nations in question agree to.  The prophet Daniel informs us that this covenant will be confirmed rather than drawn up, suggesting that something is already in place but not yet agreed upon:

He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him." Daniel 9:27 NIV

It certainly seems like we are fast approaching something very big in the days and weeks ahead.  This along with all the other things concurring in this world of ours, (exponential increase in knowledge, a globe that is swaying to and fro from increasing seismic and volcanic activity,  the rush towards world government and the cashless society, and even such bizarre things as what appears to be the unveiling of the knowledge of extraterrestrials), point to the soon return of Jesus Christ.

Are you ready?  Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour.  Now is the day of salvation.  Never put off till tomorrow what you should do today, for tomorrow is never guaranteed.

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

Keep looking up, for your redemption is right around the corner.  Maranatha and we will see you next week.
