Dear friends,

It is my sincere belief that the forced imposition of an international “peace deal” between the Palestinians and Israel (by outside forces) is the marker for the beginning of the last 7 years of earth’s history!!!! Otherwise known as the “70th Week of Daniel”!

This is very serious. Please, if you don’t take me seriously that’s OK. Just watch carefully with your own eyes. It would be as if the weather service put out a watch for something. It is never guaranteed, but you trust that it could be “likely”. The percentage of that likelihood is negotiable. But it is still “likely”. Remember the adage BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. In this case the sorry will be worse than anything you’ve ever seen or imagined.

I’m not a date setter. I’m not an Antichrist namer. I’m not the type to present human interpretation as fact. Jesus simply said WATCH that the hour does not OVERTAKE YOU UNAWARE!

Remember ALL THE VIRGINS FELL ASLEEP. Only the wise had oil…..

Figure out what oil God has for you! Figure out what God wants you to hold tight to! Hold fast to the hope that is in you, Christ!

AMEN – Even so come Lord Jesus!

Love,

Corwin

Abbas urges Obama to impose Mideast peace solution

By Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondent, and News Agencies
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged the Obama administration on Saturday to impose a solution to the Middle East conflict that would give his people an independent state.

“Mr. President [Barack Obama] and members of the American administration, since you believe in this [an independent Palestinian state], it is your duty to take steps toward a solution and to impose this solution,” Abbas said in a speech.

Abbas made the remarks to members of his Fatah party in the West Bank city of Ramallah a day after talks there with Obama’s Middle East envoy. George Mitchell is in the region to try to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

“We’ve asked them [the Obama administration] more than once: ‘Impose a solution,'” Abbas said.

Abbas also rejected the establishment of a Palestinian state within temporary borders, an idea he said was recently proposed for restarting peace talks.
In his speech, Abbas referred to recent proposals – apparently from Israel – for a temporary state but did not elaborate. Frankly, we will not accept the state with temporary borders, because it is being offered these days, he said.

He said the Palestinians were being asked to take a state with provisional borders on 40 or 50 percent, and after that we will see.

Abbas aide Nabil Abu Rdeneh denied that Israel officially raised the idea.

However, a Palestinian academic said Israel offered Abbas such a state on more than 50 percent of the West Bank. The academic said he served as a go-between for the two sides and spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters.

A Palestinian state with provisional borders is part of the U.S.-backed road map peace plan as an interim step toward full independence.

Mitchell told Israel and the Palestinians on Friday that Obama wants a comprehensive peace deal to be a reality soon and not in some vague and distant future time.

Pressing both sides to end a 16-month suspension of negotiations, Obama wants “proximity talks” on a deal to start within weeks. He has said peace is a vital strategic interest of the United States as it battles Islamic militants abroad.

Abbas’ appeal to Obama came amid widespread media reports that the U.S. president was considering floating a proposal that would set the contours of a final peace deal.

Any such move would likely be opposed by Israel, which says only negotiations can secure a final settlement to the conflict.

Report: Netanyahu agrees to new gestures toward Abbas

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to release more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, to remove several roadblocks in the West Bank, and to ease the blockade on the Gaza Strip, as a series of gestures towards Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the London-based Arabic Language news agency Al-Hayat reported on Saturday.

During his meeting with United States special Mideast envoy Mitchell on Friday, Netanyahu also agreed to enable the Palestinian Authority to act in Area C, which contains most Israeli settlements, in the West Bank.

However, Netanyahu refused the U.S. demand to freeze construction in East Jerusalem as well as the request to return all territories classified as Area C in the West Bank to PA control, Al-Hayat reported.

The West Bank was divided in 1995 into Areas A, B and C, in accordance with an Israeli-Palestinian interim agreement. More than 70,000 Palestinians live in Area C, which according to the Oslo Accord gives Israel full civilian and military control of the area.

Palestinian sources quoted by the London-based paper said that, despite the new gestures, Abbas rejected Netanyahu’s recent offer to establish a Palestinian state within temporary borders on over 60 percent of West Bank territories, as he believed that the offer was an attempt to drag him into sterile negotiations in order to perpetuate the PA as a temporary borders.

Israeli and American officials reportedly conveyed the offer to Abbas, while President Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Ehud Barak both attempted to convince the U.S. that this was the only way to prevent a continuous Middle East conflict, Al-Hayat reported.

Dear friends,

Some think that a huge prophetic sign of the End is the complete and utter annihilation of the city of Damascus. It is prophesied in the Bible in Isaiah 17. The city is one of the oldest “continuously inhabited cities in the world”, (Wikipedia), but God says to Isaiah that there will come a time when it will “no longer be a city, but will become a heap of ruin”. It will be in a time when the nations are “raging” but “sudden terror” will come upon them because of what they have done to Israel. This is a very serious prophecy. I don’t know 100% that it is a major prophetic sign, but, if you should see Damascus hit by an Israeli nuclear weapon and completely wiped away, take heart and remember Isaiah 17!!!!


Hezbollah is Paving the Way for a New War

What awaits Lebanon and the Lebanese if the opposition wins the coming parliamentary elections? The answer came in the form of a “notification” distributed by the head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc to participants in this week’s national dialogue session. In it, the party warns of all-out military maneuvers that Israel will carry out at the end of next month, or a week before the elections, with the participation of all of its agencies, institutions and weapons. In addition, the Lebanese state is supposed to join up completely with the resistance in preparing for the outbreak of a “surprise” war with the Jewish state.

The “notification,” which was mostly devoted to stressing the massive Israeli maneuvers as well as their meaning, threat, background and dimensions, was clear in its conclusions: dialogue is a mere waste of time and effort; the only defense strategy that the party accepts, and strives for, is one that it lays down, according to its own thinking, in coordination with its external allies Syria and Iran, and in line with its conception of the role of the country, its institutions, its army and its citizens. In even more clearer terms, it is a consecration of Lebanon as a sole, permanent arena of confrontation with Israel. Hezbollah affirms that it is being targeted by these maneuvers and calls for a comprehensive Lebanese response at the civil, military and political level, covering hospitals, blood banks, water, telephone, electricity, the army, the security apparatuses, the media, embassies, diplomats… because it believes it necessary to confront Israel “in a way suitable to the nature of the challenge” that it represents and “be ready for the worst.”

In this sense, Hezbollah is portending an inevitable new war with Israel, one whose timing depends on factors connected to both it and the Jewish state. The Lebanese state can take no action except to prepare for this war, since anything else would have no point.


Hamas* warns Abbas not to form new government alone

After failing to reach agreement with Hamas over the formation of a Palestinian unity government, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is planning to form a new government that would not include representatives of the Islamic movement, a PA official in Ramallah said Thursday.

In response, Hamas warned that such a move would be regarded as a “fatal blow” to Egyptian efforts to end the power struggle with Fatah.

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, a spokesman for Abbas, said that Abbas was expected to announce a new government soon. He did not give a date, but another PA official said the new government would most probably be established on the eve of Abbas’s visit to Washington, where he is expected to meet for the first time with US President Barack Obama.

“President Abbas still hasn’t begun negotiations over the formation of a new government,” Abu Rudaineh said. “But he does plan to form a government with a broad coalition in the near future.”


Hamas Army Preparing for New War*

The defacto Hamas government in Gaza is re-training its army and changing its tactics in preparation for what it believes will be another war with Israel, according to Staretegypage.com. Iran and Hizbullah are advising Hamas on how to overcome its failures against Israel in the IDFs Operation Cast Lead counterterrorist campaign earlier this year.

Hamas tactics in the war backfired. It told its fighters to dress in civilian clothes as a ploy to raise civilian casualties, but the IDF surprised it by pinpointing its attacks and warning civilians to leave areas before they were bombed.

Hamas has used the ceasefire, which Israel declared on condition that international monitors would be positioned along the Egyptian border to stop smuggling, to bring in advanced weapons through new tunnels that have been built. Two Arab smugglers or workers were killed Thursday morning in a tunnel collapse underneath the border at Rafiah.

*The Hamas army now includes anti-aircraft missiles that have been provided by Iran.* Israel Air Force planes were equipped with devices to deflect anti-aircraft missiles during Operation Cast Lead, but the newly-smuggled weapons are more advanced.

During the next war, Hamas’s army will remain in uniform and will use hit-and-run tactics instead of directly engaging Israeli troops.

Hamas has dismissed 40 commanders of its forces, which it is re-building with more discipline. It also is developing improved communications systems to protect senior leaders, many of whom were targeted by Israel.

One tactic that worked to a certain extent was the deployment of its army in schools and hospitals, which also were used as weapons depots, forcing the IDF to delay attacking unless it could be proven beyond a doubt that the facilities no longer were functioning for civilian purposes.


UN Convention on the Rights of the Child stirs debate

U.S. and Somalia lone holdouts, but opponents see a threat to parents

NEW YORK — A global children’s rights treaty, ratified by every UN member except the U.S. and Somalia, has so alarmed its American critics that some are pushing to add a parental rights amendment to the Constitution as a buffer against it.

The result is a feisty new twist to a long-running saga over the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The nearly 20-year-old treaty has ardent supporters and opponents in the U.S., and both sides agree that its chances of ratification — while still uncertain — are better under the Obama administration than at any point in the past.

Opponents of the treaty contend it would enable government officials and a Geneva-based UN committee of experts to interfere with parental authority. Its supporters view the treaty as a valuable guidepost for children’s basic rights — including education, health care and protection from abuse.

“No UN treaty will ever usurp the national sovereignty of this country,” said Meg Gardinier, chair of a national coalition backing the treaty. “Ratification would boost our credibility globally.”

Gardinier says her coalition — with scores of partners including Amnesty International and the Girl Scouts of the USA — has learned to be patient, and hopes an all-out push for ratification will be mounted by the third year of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The treaty’s opponents say they will be ready to fight back, and the proposed parental rights amendment is a key part of their strategy.

Introduced this spring by Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the amendment has 80 of his fellow Republicans as co-sponsors in the House. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says he plans to introduce it in the Senate.

Hoekstra acknowledges that they are far short of the needed two-thirds support in both chambers of Congress to forward the amendment to the states, but he says the dynamics could change.


Hoekstra’s brief amendment opens by declaring: “The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.”

It says federal and state government cannot infringe on that right without clear justification, and then concludes: “No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.”


EUROPEAN NATIONS, TURKEY IGNORE UN SANCTIONS

AGAINST IRAN

Israel National News reports: “Five European nations, as well as Turkey, have ignored the economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council in the past year, according to state-run Iranian media.

The head of the Iranian Trade Promotion Agency, Mehdi Ghazanfari, told the IRNA news agency that Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and the United Kingdom have carried out some $15.4 billion in bilateral trade with Iran over the past year.

Ghazanfari said the European states were ‘keen on continuing bilateral economic cooperation with Iran,’ despite the U.N. sanctions.

Turkey has gone even farther, according to Bahman Hosseinpour, the Islamic Republic’s Ambassador to Ankara.

Hosseinpour told participants at a business seminar focusing on Iran-Turkey ties that trade volume between the two countries has reached a record $12 billion this year alone, according to the Fars news agency.

A delegation of 170 Iranian exporters and other business owners traveled to Ankara this week for talks aimed at expanding commercial ties between the two nations…”


In the next 3 stories, I want you to see that the connection between “peace” in the Middle East and the world’s obsession has more to do with oil and money than human rights. Continue to watch the “war” among the world’s powers for political, financial, and military influence in the middle east. Russia & EU relations will continue to conflict  based on their international ENERGY interests in Georgia, Ukraine, Turkey, Iran, and all of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean. It will be one of the main reasons that the Antichrist will have such overwhelming power over the world financially. He will control “peace” in the Middle East and will hold radical Islam in his right hand. He will overcome them by Satanic spiritual and military means and control the world’s OIL!! Keep watching the fight punch by punch and play by play and you will not be caught UNAWARE! NAT

Russia's President Medvedev seals the deal with S Ossetia's leader 30 April 2009

The treaty allows Russia to extend its period of border control

Russia has signed a five-year deal taking formal control of its de facto borders with two breakaway regions of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

Nato said Russia was in “clear contravention” of the ceasefire ending last year’s conflict with Georgia.

The deal comes ahead of planned Nato exercises in Georgia next week, which Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev has described as “overt provocation”.

Russia and Nato only resumed formal contacts on Wednesday.

The two rivals have been gradually rebuilding ties after breaking off contacts over the war.

But relations remain difficult. Nato expelled two Russian diplomats on Thursday over a spy scandal, infuriating Russia…

U.N.’s Top Climate Change Official: A New Willingness to

Tackle Emissions

Major developing countries like China are doing far more to address climate change than most Americans realize, the top climate change official at the United Nations said yesterday after a meeting in Washington of ministers from the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters.

The two-day meeting, requested by President Obama, brought together officials from 16 of the world’s major economic powers—the United States, the European Union, China, and India, among others—for a special, intimate round of negotiations as they work toward signing a new climate change treaty with the rest of the world by the end of the year.


The last half of the 1800’s was such a pivotal time in earth’s history. It all happened so fast, the US had endured a bloody Civil War, industrialization blazed around the globe digging up diamonds, processing steel, lugging goods around in locomotives. Charles Darwin penned Origin of the Species, Joseph Smith formed Mormonism, and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky started the Theosophical Society

Wait…WHAT, who is Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and what the hay is the Theosophical Society???

If you don’t know her name it is not a surprise. If you do, are you sure you’re not a disciple of the New Age who is promoting the coming of The World Teacher Maitreya the Christ?

The false religious system that Satan personally has set up FOR THIS TIME is called New Age Spirituality.

(I really, really, really would like to you to look up “New Age” in Wikipedia just to get an idea of the vast array of influences that have come to create the modern New Age movement.)

The New Age movement can be traced back to the writings of two major female authors: H. P. Blavatsky and Alice Ann Bailey. The pivotal works that the New Age world view are based on were written by these two women.

Other important authors and leaders of the movement include: H.G. Wells, David Spangler, Marilyn Ferguson, and Benjamin Creme (just to name a tiny minuscule select few…)

If you study it in depth you begin to realize a frightening thing: They have literally infiltrated every area of power, finance, politics, religion, and influence on this entire planet and (through the direct help of their father Satan) have succeeded in their aims.

In order to finish this letter in any decent length of time, you are going to have to either take my word for it or study it yourself. The best way to study it yourself is to get a general view through “secular” sources (such as Wikipedia and your local library) and then read Constance Cumbey’s book “The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”. Download it here for free.


I want to put forth two disclaimers before I go on:

1) Not all people involved in New Age practices believe the same things, but the “system” that they are believing in and the movement/leaders behind it all have the same principles/tenets and are from common sources (mainly Blavatsky, Bailey, and Ferguson’s writings).

2) Individual people involved in the New Age movement should not be vilified or condemned, they are deluded and need the Salvation and wisdom of Jesus the real Son of God.

The following are the basic beliefs (historical and modern) of the New Age movement:
(I am paraphrasing using my own language in no particular order – the movement has its own language that can be hard to understand until you read Mrs. Cumbey’s book.)

– Spiritual beings called “Masters,” guide New Age disciples to secret knowledge about themselves, the universe, “god”, the animal kingdom, life, death, reincarnation, and the history and future of earth.

– There is a distinct “Hierarchy” of these Masters, along with energies, forces, god, etc. It can be confusing, but I will say this there is no personal God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. They deny the Trinity entirely, and instead believe in a god of unknown forces.* (*this will be significant in the Abomination of Desolation – see Daniel 11:38 KJV)

– “god” exists in all nature, matter, space, time – they believe in “monism” and “pantheism”. There are spirits of nature.

– The Hierarchy is important, however, to study (if you have the interest) because these “Masters” are spiritual beings and who embody different men and women on the earth. They have a physical presence, as well as a spiritual presence. They can communicate telepathically to the disciple or in person. They are living in cities around the globe and when the body they are inhabiting dies, they inhabit another. (Does this sound like demonic possession to you? It sure does to me…)

– Disciples must take “initiations” and gain gnostic secret knowledge in order to climb the hierarchy. These “initiations” are many times called Luciferic Initiations. They, in point of fact, worship Lucifer, the god of light, the “Lord of this World.” Although many will not admit this. It is PLAIN AS DAY in their literature and in the writings of their founders.

– The “Masters” have been around since pre-flood times and helped a race called the Atlanteans move beyond “animal human” to a higher consciousness. “Occidental” races existed (and do until today) along with these advanced Atlanteans. But another step in human evolution has to happen in order for the “human family” to continue to exist. This next step is called by many names but basically is the New World Order.

– Humans are on a millions of years journey through evolution to become a perfect consciousness of power, light, love, mind, and energy: a NEW species of human that is essentially “god-like”.

– The “Masters” are helping humanity reach this goal.

– The goals concretely, are to bring in a new era (they themselves call it a New World Order over and over again) where humans are completely united, have a world government, world economic system, global food distribution, peace and military disarmament (except for them), and a common WORLD RELIGION (theirs).

– The “person” who will bring about this great convergence, transition, initiative is called the Christ, Sanat Kumara, Maitreya, etc. The New Agers say that this “god-man” is the embodiment of Buddha, Imam Mahdi, Krishna, etc., etc. to the major world religions. He will satisfy all prophecies of religions and will be a real messiah for humanity. The only hope for it’s survival. He is also called “The World Teacher”.

– They teach that the historical Jesus was real, but he was just a man who had the “Christ Consciousness”. The “Christ Consciousness” is the same as that of high level Master Maitreya above. In fact as a “Master” Master Jesus is low on the hierarchy and Master Maitreya is highest.

– This “Sanat Kumara” is the supreme being behind the “Masters” and the movement as a whole. He is at the highest level and is considered the “Lord of the World“. He will bring in the New Age in a literal sense on the earth. He will bring about the goals of the movement. He will save the world. He will cause all religions to look to him and worship him as he embodies the “Maitreya the Christ”.

– In order to bring about this great dawning of a new humanity, however, they must do something akin to Hitler (although they won’t admit it). They must move fundamentalist religions and people out of their way. They must move substandard races of people our of their way. They use arguments that sound something like this: “These groups and races are not far enough in their Karmic evolutionary journey and must be sent to other realms to finish.” OR “there will be a “Cleansing Action” in order for humanity to survive and move forward in their evolutionary and divine journey.” They particularly target Christians, Jews, and Muslims. The Eastern religions are all right up their ally because they teach things like Nirvana and reincarnation, NOT a personal God who will act on our behalf and cares about right and wrong or who might destroy the world.

Some Distinct Characteristics of the Modern New Age Movement:

The movement has intentionally changed its language since the 1980’s when Constance Cumbey published “Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”. They have moved to catch phrases like, New Consciousness, Global Initiatives, Planetary Peace, Sustainable Development, World Community, Global Village, and more. They are distinctly ENVIRONMENTALLY obsessed. They are obsessed by human salvation of the planet (for one because we are gods) and there is no personal god to do. They believe in the god of energies and forces. Everything is “included” or a “part of” god (as I said above monism and pantheism). So therefor the plants, animals, minerals, trees, oceans, air, everything is god and is interconnected. If we let the earth it will repair itself, but in repairing itself, it will kill off humanity. Humanity will die out and the energies must start again. They are so eco-conscious as to be rabid about it. Almost ALL the modern New Age organizations are extremely involved in any environmental programs, initiatives, agencies, and global plans. I would go so far as to say there are very few international organizations that are purely concerned about the environment from a genuine pragmatism, but the majority are wholeheartedly faithful New Agers, SPIRITUALLY.

Other modern New Age practices include hollistic medicine, biofeedback, mind over health type practices. Heal yourself from the power within, or the cosmic energy or whatever. These practices may look harmless to an outsider, like herbs, acupuncture, massage, meditation, Yoga, etc. Many of  you may be involved in these practices and they may indeed “work”. But beware of the spiritual basis behind them: Eastern mysticism, esotericism, deep transcendental meditation, and downright Lucifer worship.

Automatic writing is now referred to as “journaling”. Which is exactly what I teach my ministry classes. I however teach hearing from God the Father, through the Power of the Holy Spirit, by the Person of Jesus LIVING IN YOUR heart through daily prayer. If you are not a regenerated Christian, do not journal. The voices you hear may not be divine. If you are, choose a pastoral accountability partner or an older Christian to help you discern what you are hearing.

There’s much MUCH more to the New Age spiritual movement that I want to share with you, but time does not allow in this email. The most important thing is they are going full force, they are on the literal brink of having achieved their goals. Since the 1970’s they have been openly (not secretly as before) promoting their agenda with full page news ads in major newspapers and magazines. They have practically taken over Hollywood, the media, social politics, universities, financial/business centers, and now major globalizing organizations.

They literally now have a global empire. You cannot ignore this fact when you look at what I will post later this week. There is so much more, but I have said enough.

FOR NOW…

PLEASE PRAY VIGILANTLY for the people deluded by this movement. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ who are on the edge of apostasy by believing New Age ideas wholeheartedly (there are MANY of them, trust me, they were my professors at Piedmont College….) Pray for the world and what it is about to undergo. Pray for the martyrs. Pray for the persecuted. Pray, pray, PRAY!

And after you’ve prayed, SHARE CHRIST. For the spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of JESUS. And to deny Jesus is the Son of God in the flesh, and the Only Way to heaven is the spirit of the Antichrist.

Mobilising People and Actions for War Richard Peterson (April 13, 2008) – This article is the second of a three part series which compares the legal and cultural changes being made by today’s global government to those made by the Nazis. Part I, Ghost of Nazi Past, Ghost of Nazi Present focused on cultural, media, parliamentary, and judicial manipulations while this part focuses on science, religion, religious education, and spiritual mobilization. The format of this post is as follows: texts in bold font are citations fromRichard Evans’ book The Third Reich in Power. Italicized texts that follow Evens’ citations are quotations from global governance actors along with some of my commentary.

Writing of the hostilities between the Nazis and the Catholic Church, Evans explains “…the German government repeatedly told the Vatican that its fight against Marxism and Communism demanded the unity of the German people through the ending of confessional divisions.” (pg. 241) Today, we see the identical argument being advanced by the Alliance of Civilizations, the World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality, et al. In the interest of combating extremism and terrorism we are told a global code of conduct which embraces only common spiritual and political ideologies must be adopted. Contributors to this code of conduct are groups such as the World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality which will “activate” the evolutionary process of global consciousness; the Alliance of Civilizations which is currently developing guidelines for how religions must interpret scripture; Religions for Peace which is advancing A Common Word, an initiative designed to undermine religious doctrines and hijack religion; etc. Orchestrated efforts to incite violence against those who refuse to set aside their doctrines—particularly against the monotheistic faiths – have intensified on multiple fronts. Evans writes “Nazism imbued the German language with the metaphors of battle: the battle for jobs, the struggle for existence, the fight for culture…The language itself began to be mobilized for war.” (pg. 214) We are in this same place today. Christians who dare voice an unpopular opinion are accused of having a violent ethos. The existence of the new civilization is threatened if the egocentric are permitted to continue with their “defective disconnection”. It is, as they say, a fight for civilization. Setting the stage for the new religious ethos is Karen Armstrong, Alliance of Civilizations High Level Group member.

Science

One criticism consistently launched against the adherents of the Abrahamic faiths’ is that the doctrines cannot be scientifically proven and the faithful have abandoned rational scientific inquiry. Yet many of the same critics who claim superiority have no problem advancing unproven occult doctrines such as notions of a “planetary spiritual hierarchy”; the existence of the Aryans and Atlantis; evolutionary advancement through Luciferic initiations; etc., etc.

“The real core of Nazi beliefs lay in the faith Hitler proclaimed in his speech of September 1938 in science – a Nazi view of science – as the basis for action.” Pg 259

“But humanity has hitherto lacked an adequate global grammar and a global lens to fully activate this integral/holistic/dialogic technology of mind; and since our living realities are co-created by out patterns of minding, the supreme technological advance in the human condition is this advance to the integral technology of minding.” –
 World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

Religion

Here the comparisons I draw are between the Third Reich’s attempts to control Christianity and the global government’s plans to control the three monotheistic faiths. The below World Commission citations that refer to the egocentric mind refer to individuals who believe their religious texts to be true and are not prepared to abandon their convictions for a new revelation. The egocentric mind also pertains to political dissenters of the globalization process.

“National Socialism is not only a political doctrine, it is a total and all-encompassing general perspective on all public matters. So our entire life has to be based on it as a matter of natural assumption. We hope that the day will come when nobody needs to talk about National Socialism any more…One day, the spiritual awakening of our time will emerge from this will to culture.” – Joseph Goebbels Pg 211

“Our great spiritual traditions and teachers were all in diverse ways fostering and opening the way to the awakening of global consciousness.” – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“One striking result of the general global law – we are as we mind…But humanity has hitherto lacked an adequate global grammar and a global lens to fully activate this integral/holistic/ dialogic technology of mind; and since our living realities are co-created by our patterns of minding,, the supreme technological advance in the human condition is this advance to the integral technology of minding.” – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“As an SS plan put it in 1937: ‘We live in the age of the final confrontation with Christianity. It is part of the mission of the SS to give to the German people over the next fifty years the non-Christian ideological foundations for a way of life appropriate to their own character.’…Christianity, Himmler was to declare on 9 June 1942, was ‘the greatest of plagues’; true morality consisted not in exalting the spirit of the individual but in abnegating oneself in the service of the race. Moral values could be derived only from consciousness of one’s place in, and duty to, the chain of ‘valuable’ heredity.” Pg 252

“Perhaps the single most powerful event facing humanity today is a great awakening on a planetary scale that has been millennia in the making. We humans are in the midst of a profound advance as a species to a higher form of global consciousness that has been emerging across cultures, religions and worldviews through the centuries. This awakening…is nothing less than a shift…from more egocentric patterns of life to a higher form of integral and dialogic patterns of life.” – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“…it should now be apparent that global spirituality is precisely this crossing from egocentric life into the deep–dialogic life of global consciousness: this is the highest telos and consensus of our great planetary spiritual endowment…True Spirituality is the highest expression of our rational essence and is not to be confused with egocentric religious life. Spirituality is the awakening of our highest being, bringing us into direct relation with Reality as the Logosphere; it is the process of self–transformation from ego life to the awakened life of mature Integral Natural Reason and flowing in harmony with the Lawlike Moral Energy of the Logosphere. And Global Spirituality is this awakening of the Global Mind, the highest mature form of spirituality in its global power. Global Spirituality then is Awakened Critical Reason and is thus free of all ego ideology and ego dogma. Now, hopefully, the direct link between global consciousness and global spirituality should be more manifest.” – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“By 1937 the Protestant Church was either deeply divided between the German Christians and the Confession Church…biblical fundamentalism and Nazified Christianity were equally repellent.” Pg 228

“The egocentric… mind is a stage in our human development (evolution) which tends to separate and objectify the thinking subject from the objects of though, and to remain centered in and privileging its particular worldview (religion, ideology, cultural lens) as the exclusive measure of reality (meaning, truth, fact, value, experience, existence). The egocentric mind is broken off from the Integral Field of Reality and packages, constructs, separates, divides, polarizes, fragments all its touches….ego minding is the primary cause of the spectrum of human pathologies. And the consensus prescription is that to change this mentality is the single most important factor in transforming the human condition.” – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“Anti-Christian writings of the Nazi ideologue Alfred Rosenberg, who publicly rejected such central doctrines as the immortality of the soul and Christ’s redemption of humankind from original sin. In his book The Myth of the Twentieth Century, Rosenberg excoriated Catholicism as the creation of the Jewish clericalism” pg 238

“Robert Ley, leader of the Labour Front, went even further than Rosenberg in his disdain for Christianity and his rejection of the Divinity of Christ…” pg 251

“Jesus, whom the Muslims regard as a prophet, as in fact do many of the New Testament writers. Luke’s gospel calls Jesus a prophet from start to finish; the idea that Jesus was divine was a later development, often misunderstood by Christians.” Karen Armstrong, Alliance of Civilizations

Karen Armstrong, a apostate and former Catholic nun, is certainly aware that this is considered heresy by the Catholic church and that her words were intended to attack an entire religion. At least the Alliance of Civilizations is no longer attempting to pretend to be something they are not.

Religious Education

“Remoulding the educational system would create a new generation of young Germans who had known no alternative source of values to Nazism. Yet there was of course one area in which such values did persist…That was religion. For reasons of political expediency and caution, the Third Reich had stopped short in 1933 of attacking the Churches and their dependent secular institutions. As it became more self-confident, however, it began to turn its attention to Christianity too, and to seek a means of either converting it to a form more suitable to the new Germany, or, if that did not work, of doing away with it altogether.” Pg 218

“Nazis now launched a sustained campaign to close denominational schools and replace them with non-religious ‘community schools’…Parents were forced to sign prepared statements declaring that they ‘did not want the education of my child at school to be misused by stirring up religious unrest’ Pg 246

“By the summer of 1939, all denominational schools in Germany had been turned into community schools, and all private schools run by the Churches had been closed down or nationalized…By 1939 religious instruction in vocational schools had been reduced to half an hour a week, and in many areas it had to follow guidelines…Parents who objected to these moves…were obliged by the local authorities to withdraw their objection, summoned to special meetings at the school to pressure them to sign their children up for ideological instruction instead of religious education…” pgs 246-247

“The German Christian’s attempt to create a synthesis between German Protestantism and Nazi racism had effectively collapsed…Hitler reluctantly abandoned his ambition of convereting it into the official state Church of the Third Reich. Instead, he ordered the creation of a new Ministry for Church Affairs, established in July 1935 under the 48-year-old Hanns Kerrl…The new Ministry was given wide-ranging powers, which Kerrl did not hesitate to deploy in order to bring refractory pastors to heel…Pastors were banned from preaching, or had their pay stopped. They were forbidden to teach in schools. All theological students were ordered to join Nazi organizations.” Pg 230

Such measures are most likely to succeed if supported by religious education that is based upon a sound interpretation of religious teachings. – Alliance of Civilizations High Level Group

“Education as we understand it here makes it possible to view with equanimity the completion of the process of secularisation, first of structures, then of society itself, as just one of several possible reflections of a modern way of life. School should give children a clearer understanding of the psychosocial, cultural and sometimes political functions of religion. This sort of approach would undoubtedly help to sharpen and challenge their critical faculties and combat the wilder excesses of particularism. This has fundamental consequences for the educational system, particularly as regards the teaching of religious education. Who should teach religion? Who can make a valid comparison between the different doctrinal elements of religions? We must beware of confusion here. A clear distinction needs to be drawn between religious education in the sense understood by adherents of a faith, which consists of transmitting the values, teachings and liturgy of their religion with a view to the proper practice of that religion (e.g. the Catholic catechism), and the teaching of comparative religion which aims only to instil knowledge about religion and the history of religion. Only the latter forms one of the bases of learning for the intercultural dialogue through education. Religious education of the first kind is perfectly legitimate, but is not relevant to the objective under discussion. Comparative religion should therefore be taught by professional teachers capable of providing a comparative analysis of religions, regardless of their own religious choice, with the objectivity of an expert, not the passion of a devotee. This is an essential choice that will determine the success of the dialogue through education. The difficulty of the exercise lies in integrating religion, which is such a sensitive issue in the Euro-Mediterranean area, into the field of education, taking into account its irreducibility and its mission to provide absolute truth, but without altering the educational philosophy of mutual knowledge based on curiosity, self-respect and openness to the Other.”  Dialogue Between Peoples and Cultures in the Euro-Mediterranean Area

Propaganda & Spiritual Mobilization

“Hitler had created a new Ministry of Popular enlightenment and Propoganda on 13 March 1933 and put Goebbels himself into the Ministry…the Ministry’s task as the ‘spiritual mobilization’ of the German people in a permanent re-creation of the spirit of popular enthusiasm…” pg. 121

“In other words, religions and the institutions that represent them cannot be banned from the public sphere but must be brought in under the leadership of the international civil bodies when it comes to questions concerning mutual recognition, universal justice, and lasting peace.” – Alliance of Civilizations High Level Group

“The revolution we have made’, declared Joseph Goebbels, on 15 November 1933, ‘is a total one. It has encompassed every area of public life and fundamentally restructured them all. It has completely changed and reshaped people’s relationship to each other, to the state, and questions of existence.’ Page 120

“One striking pattern and disclosure that is of the utmost importance for seeing that entering the global perspective is a dimensional shift….This dimensional shift to the global lens is well beyond a mere “paradigm shift”…It actually taps a deeper ground of Reality – it is an existential shift.” –
 World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“To what extent is the current state of “American civic discourse” dominated by egocentric politics and ego democracy= egocracy? Have we truly matured into a secular civic space? A truly secular civic democracy can only arise through spiritual citizenship. That would be the true American revolution. – World Commission on Global Consciousness & Spirituality

“That is the secret to propaganda: to permeate the person it aims to grasp, without his even noticing that he is being permeated. Of course propaganda has a purpose, but the purpose must be concealed with such cleverness and virtuosity that the person on whom this purpose is to be carried out doesn’t notice at all.” – Joseph Goebbels Pg 127

“What the Nazis wanted from books was demonstrated in propaganda events such as the German Book Week, held annually from 1934 onwards. ‘Sixty million people will be roused at the end of October by the drumbeat of book promotion,’ declared one of the leading organizers of the 1935 event. These ‘days of mobilization’ would ‘implement inner military preparedness from the spiritual angle in the cause of building up our people.’ Pg 162

 

Last November I posted an article, Aligning the Masses, regarding the 2008 Euro-Mediterranean Year of Intercultural Dialogue. The campaign, “Mobilising People and Actions for Dialogue”, intends to mobilize civil society and raise awareness” of 500 million European citizens and develop an active European citizenship which is “open to the world, respectful of cultural diversity and based upon common values”. I had intended to write in-depth analysis on this mobilization project but while looking for a reference document found a blog space called Euro-Med which had already written everything I had intended to cover. I have not read this entire blog, but the previous link contains good information.

“Advertising and design began to incorporate Nazi symbols and to adopt approved Nazi style.” Pg 211

“Symbols can be very effective tools in advancing a cause. The creation of a house or temple of religions or civilizations in as many cities as possible will be a tangibleand important step in this direction.” – Alliance of Civilizations High Level Group

No Rapture – No Cry

October 11, 2008

So what if there is no pre-tribulation secret rapture of Christ’s beloved Bride???

 

What if the Bible’s chronology is simply this:

 

Israel miraculously returns after 2000 years

Antichrist rises “behind the scenes”

Antichrist makes the 7-year “covenant of death” with Israel

Israel rebuilds temple during a time of false peace

Antichrist comes against God’s Holy people

Antichrist sets up the Abomination of Desolation

Antichrist demands the world’s worship (with help of false prophet)

Antichrist makes WAR against the Saints

Antichrist surrounds Jerusalem with his armies (on all the mountains of Israel)

Jesus sends fire from heaven to devour these armies

THE GREAT SIGNS OF THE DAY OF THE LORD! (Trumpet, Sun, Moon, Stars, Sky)

Jesus COMES BACK to defend Israel and redeem his Beloved Bride!

We meet Him in the AIR!!!!!

 

So if you find yourself still here when the Antichrist is demanding the world’s worship and instating the Mark of Beast…DON’T CRY

Simply know that Tim Lahaye and others were a little off on their chronology.

Take heart HAVE TREMENDOUS HOPE!!! The Day of Our Lord’s Appearing is in sight EVEN AT THE DOOR!!!!!

SIX SIGNS GIVEN BY JESUS TO INDICATE HIS COMING AND THE END OF THE AGE


In Matthew24:3 Jesus was asked, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?”  Jesus told his apostles to look for  the following signs prior to his second coming and the end of the age.

 

1.  FALSE PROPHETS AND CHRISTS

Matthew 24:5 “For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and will mislead many.”

Matthew 24:11 “And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many.”

In the last several years many have claimed to be the Messiah.  Jim Jones and David Koresh are examples of these false christs as well as countless others who are not as newsworthy.  These false prophets are a prelude to the ultimate false christ, the antichrist.  Many New Age groups, some even NGO’s working for the United Nations, are anxiously awaiting the antichrist, preparing the way for his acceptance as the head of the hierarchy of gods and the one who will usher in world peace.

2.  WARS

Matthew 24:6 “And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.”

 

Rumors of wars in all areas of the world now occur frequently thanks to instant media coverage and the availability of a multitude of 24-hour news sources.

 

Matthew 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

 

More people have been killed in warfare in this century than at any other time in history.  As the death toll rises in the Middle East, more and more countries work feverishly to develop devastating weapons of mass destruction.  Add to that the expanding threat of terrorism and unpredictable dictators such as Saddam Hussein, and the potential for the outbreak of war exists in nations, kingdoms and places across the globe.

3.  FAMINES

Matthew 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

 

As white, Christian farmers are driven out of Zimbabwe in increasing numbers, and foreigners move in to replace life-sustaining crops with poppies that now supply 25% of the worlds drugs, famine spreads across the African continent.  The undernourished are not limited to Africa, however.  A large portion of the worlds 5 billion people suffers from a shortage of food.

4.  EARTHQUAKES

Matthew 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

 

The number and intensity of earthquakes this century is at a level higher than any other time in history.  A staggering number of seismic events occur around the world daily.  The earthquake seismic monitor IRIS shows all major earthquakes for the last year.  Indicated by yellow and red circles, the seismic events of the last 15 days provides strong evidence of the fulfillment of Matthew 24:7 in our day.  By contrast, in the years from 1890 to 1900 there was only one major earthquake in the world.

5.  TRIBULATIONS

Matthew 24:8-9 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.  Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of my name.”

 

Christians are under attack throughout the world today.  In the United States Christians still enjoy freedom to worship God without suffering much more than ridicule, hatred, or discrimination at work and school.  However in many other countries such as China, Sudan, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Russia, and many Muslim nations, Christian suffer much greater persecution and often times death for their faith.  During the tribulation this suffering will be worldwide and will continue even to the point of martyrdom.  These first 5 signs will increase in intensity and severity as the tribulation approaches, much like the birth pangs or contractions of a pregnant woman worsen as the delivery time approaches.

6.  THE GOSPEL WILL BE PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.”

 

This prophecy has already been fulfilled through television, radio, missionaries, the translation of the Bible into many languages, and the internet.  People all over the world now hear the message of Christ from missionaries who have the means to travel the globe, and via technology that allows us to communicate with people on the other side of the world right from our own homes, churches and offices.

 


TWO CHARACTERISTICS OF THE END OF THE AGE FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL


1.  GODLESSNESS IN THE LAST DAYS

II Timothy 3:1-5,7 “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.  For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

 

For anyone who has watched television, read a newspaper, lost a retirement to corporate greed and corruption, or just walked outside their front door, it is obvious this prophecy has been fulfilled by our generation.  Our leaders are often corrupt; our cities are filled with crime, brutality, and neon signs proclaiming our sinful, godless nature.  The New Age Movement brings in increasing numbers of mystics who claim to be the enlightened ones.  They are some of the most educated and influential people in our societies, and yet the most lacking in real truth.

2.  APOSTASY (FALLING AWAY FROM THE FAITH)

I Timothy 4:1-3 “But the spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.  By means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.”

 

Churches today are becoming more and more ecumenical, embracing the New Age interfaith agenda, and denying Christ as the only way to salvation.  Giving in to the politically correct media and a corrupt society, they have embrace homosexuality as an acceptable alternate lifestyle and preach tolerance and compromise in place of God’s truth for the salvation of the world.  The environmentalist movement within the New Age movement lures them into a worship of mother earth, belief in past lives, reincarnation, and Karma while demonizing all those who would eat the meat God gave us as nourishment for our bodies. 


ELEVEN FULFILLMENTS OF BIBLE PROPHECY REQUIRED FOR THE END OF THE AGE


1.  EXISTENCE OF A 200,000,000 MAN ARMY IN THE EAST

Revelation 9:16 “And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.”

 

An army of that size had never existed until China’s army reached that number in the 1960’s.

2.  REDEVELOPMENT OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (EUROPEAN COMMUNITY)

Daniel 2:32-33 “The head of the statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.”

 

Daniel 2:40-43 “Then there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron crushes and shatters all things, so like iron that breaks in pieces, it will crush and break all these in pieces.  And in that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have the toughness of iron, and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle.  And in that you saw the iron mixed with clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.”

 

The fourth kingdom of iron is the Roman empire according to Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.  The two legs are the division of the Roman empire into an eastern portion called the Byzantine empire which ended in the 1400’s and a western portion based in Rome which ended in the 400’s.  The nations of Europe since the Roman empire dissolved have never adhered or formed one empire but continue as separate nations, however, the European Union now has 15 Member States and is preparing for the accession of 13 eastern and southern European countries.

3.  RETURN OF THE ONE PURE LANGUAGE, HEBREW, TO ISRAEL

Zephaniah 3:9 “For then I will return to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent.”

 

Prior to the restoration of Israel in 1948, Hebrew was a dead language.  Now Hebrew is spoken throughout Israel.

4.  REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE, RESTORATION OF TEMPLE WORSHIP AND ANIMAL SACRIFICES IN JERUSALEM

For several end time prophecies to be fulfilled, the temple will have to be rebuilt.

 

Revelation 11:2 “Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the oly city for forty-two months.”

 

Daniel 9:27 “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolation, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”

 

Daniel 9:26 “Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”

 

Some archeologists believe that the temple mount is actually 340 feet south of the Dome of the Rock site, putting the Dome of the Rock within the Court of the Gentiles.  This may be the court outside the temple that is left out.

 

There are many groups already working on preparations for the new temple.  The blueprints are already done, the temple garments have been made, and there have already been attempts to lay the cornerstone of the temple.  The only thing standing in the way of the construction of the new temple is Islam’s third holiest site, the Dome of the Rock and government support for such an undertaking.  Some possible scenarios for the rebuilding of the temple are as follows:

 

1.  The persuasion and performing of miracles by the Antichrist and False Prophet convinces the Islamic world to approve the rebuilding.

 

2.  The United Nations will negotiate the rebuilding of the temple following a war with the armies from the North (Russia and Islamic forces).  This assumes that the war with the armies from the North is not the battle of Armageddon as some feel and that this attack occurs before the rapture or tribulation period begins.  The supernatural destruction of the Russian army and Islamic forces will cause an outpouring of Christian worship and zeal amongst the Jewish people who will reconstruct the temple.

 

3.  It is determined that the site of the first two temples is actually south of the Dome of the Rock, and the court of the gentiles (Dome of the Rock) will be left out of the 3rd temple.

 

A group in Israel called the Temple Mount Faithful have obtained most of the clothing, instruments and other equipment required for temple worship and are actively preparing for the laying of the third temple’s cornerstone.

5.  APPEARANCE OF THE RED HEIFER AFTER 2000 YEARS

Numbers 19:2-7 “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.  “You shall give it to Eleazar the priest, and it shall be brought outside the camp and be slaughtered in his presence.  Next Eleazar the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger and sprinkle some of its blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times.  “Then the heifer shall be burned in his sight; its hide and its flesh and its blood, with its refuse, shall be burned.  “The priest shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and afterward come into the camp, but the priest shall be unclean until evening.”

 

A red heifer will be required to be used in the process of purification described in the book of Numbers.  In May 1997 the first Red Heifer was born in 2000 years.  Another red Heifer was born in Israel in March of 2002.

6.  INCREASE IN KNOWLEDGE AND TRAVEL

Daniel 12:4 “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

 

Billy Graham was quoted as saying, “ninety percent of all the engineers and scientists who have ever lived are alive today.”  Air travel, space travel, DNA research and human cloning are all examples of the rapid increase in knowledge in our generation. 

7.  RETURN OF THE ETHIOPIAN JEWS TO ISRAEL

Zephaniah 3:10-11 “From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, My dispersed ones, will bring My offerings.  In that day you will feel no shame because of all your deeds by which you have rebelled against Me; For then I will remove from your midst your proud, exulting ones, and you will never again be haughty on My holy mountain.”

 

In 1984, Operation Moses saw the airlift of 15,000 Jews who had already fled to refugee camps in Sudan to escape starvation.  In 1991, Operation Solomon flew 20,000 Jews to Israel from Ethiopia itself.  A further airlift began in June of 1999, aimed at transporting the last 3,000 members of the Quara Jewish community from northeastern Ethiopia to Israel.

 

8.  THE RISE OF RUSSIA

Ezekiel 38:2,4,8

 

 

“Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him.  I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords.  After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.”

 

In order for some end time events to occur Russia will have to be a strong nation with a strong military. 

9.  RETURN OF RUSSIAN JEWS TO ISRAEL

Jeremiah 23:7-8 “Therefore behold, the days are coming declares the Lord, when they will no longer say, as the Lord lives, who brought up the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, but as the Lord lives, who brought up and led back the descendants of the household of Israel from the north land and from all the countries where I have driven them.  Then they will live on their own soil.”

 

In the 1970’s and 1980’s there was a mass exodus of Russian Jews out of Communist Russia.  In 1999 the Associated Press reported a dramatic increase in the number of Jewish immigrants from Russia, bringing the largest number of Russian Jews to Israel since the early 1990’s. 

10.  TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Revelation 13:16-17 “And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.”

 

On May 10, three members of a family in Florida became the first people to receive the biochip implant.  Each device, made of silicon and called a VeriChip, is a small radio transmitter about the size of a piece of rice that is injected under a person’s skin. It transmits a unique personal ID number whenever it is within a few feet of a special receiver unit. VeriChip’s maker describes it as “a miniaturized, implantable, radio frequency identification device (RFID) that can be used in a variety of security, emergency and healthcare applications.”

 

Is the biochip the mark of the beast to be used by the antichrist?  We can’t really know.  What is significant is that people are being softened to the idea of a mark or an implant as a means of maintaining security, providing medical information, and regulating a more interdependent world.  As attitudes change, fears subside, and people are convinced of the need for such a mark, the true mark of the beast will be easily introduced to the world by the antichrist.

11.  PLANS FOR THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

The United Nations, World Trade Organization, International Criminal Court, UN peacekeeping/police force, numerous UN NGO’s, and other agencies are preliminary steps to the formation of a one world government.  We now have the communications technology, transportation, and the pro-globalization media necessary to usher in the one world government headed by the antichrist.  The increasing terrorist threat and the middle east conflict will only speed up the formation of this governing body as fear and promises of better security make more people willing to give up their national sovereignty for global governance.

12.  INSTANT COMMUNICATION AROUND THE WORLD

Revelation 11:3, 7-10 “And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophecy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.  When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them.  And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.  Those from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.  And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.”

 

Television and the 24-hour news networks make it possible for people around the world to see the dead prophets and rejoice at their deaths.

 

Luke 21:28 “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

 

Luke 21:32 “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place.”

Apocalypto

September 22, 2007

So we just recently watched a very mesmerizing, violent, bloody, heart-wrenching film called Apocalypto. It was very interesting. This post is not about that film. It is about the fact that the world is ending. Yes I would not be so blunt, except that it is very urgent. Very urgent is an understatement actually. No matter how stupid, psychotic, or deranged I may sound this one fact is true: Jesus is returning to Earth, in Person, and He is coming back VERY soon. How do I know this? I talk to Him on a daily basis. He loves me and He talks back. You can discount scientific theories with new facts, so why not philosophical ones. If your current spiritual theory is not working for you, or if you are having trouble finding meaning in “life the universe and everything” then consider this, Jesus is the only proponent for absolute love, absolute truth, and absolute immortality. Everything else is bunk. Trust me. So keep reading for more about His imminent appearing.

The Bible (a VERY old book, written by numerous authors, that tells the same story about God in absolute accuracy from generation to generation) tells us when Jesus would be born, how he would be born, how he would die, and what would happen concerning that death in exact detail. So I believe that it is accurate concerning His Second Coming.

Don’t concern yourselves with the exact chronology of events, the dates, the exact countries, and the exact interpretation of every prophetic symbol. Just concern yourself with what God wants you to know. I will paraphrase:

“I will come back. Every eye will see me. Humanity will grow increasingly evil before I return. I will come quickly. I will come back to judge the earth, make an end of evil, and bring in a new era of beauty, joy, and peace.”

Bringing Us Home
