Is there a good reason why I believe we’re in the end-times? In
a word, YES! However, I’m well aware that my simply stating it does
not make it so and I pray that throughout your search for Truth you guard
your mind with the Word of God and don’t take my word for anything
without checking God’s Word. I’ve tried to ensure I do just
that in the research I present here.
Here’s another good article by Britt Gillette addressing the belief
that for the past 2,000 years everything has been the same, something Peter
prophesied in 2 Peter 3:3,4. Read

Last Days Prophecies - Understand the Times International presents
a list of 101 prophecies. The Bible foretells many signs that would
culminate in the last days. Jesus indicated these signs would arise
together as His return drew near (Matthew 24:33-34). Though many of
these prophecies won’t climax until the tribulation period, our
generation is the first to see every trend in place. As the final seconds
of this age tick away, these events will come into even clearer focus.
Keep in mind as you read through this list that these prophecies were
penned 1900 to 3500 years ago! How does this relate to you? The last
several pages provide the answer – you need to read them carefully.

You may have heard that Israel is Bible prophecy’s “super
sign” of the end-times. I’m in agreement with that. The biggest
sign that the prophetic clock started ticking was the existence of Israel
on May 14, 1948, when
the State of Israel was born. The whole end-time scenario is dependent
on Israel existing as a nation. For more on that, read the Bible study on
Daniel’s 70 Weeks.
1948: A Prophetic Year
- These two articles lay out quite clearly the prophetic fulfillment marked
by the year 1948.
Isaiah 66:6-8 A voice of noise
from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth
recompence to his enemies. Before she travailed, she brought forth;
before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard
such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to
bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once?
for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth
Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole
house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and
our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and
say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people,
I will open your graves, and cause you to come
up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your
graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall
place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD
have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.
Jews Returning To Israel (Aliyah)(May 14, 1948 - Present) - Read of
Obadiah’s Vision and the prophetic fulfillment currently underway
in the Negev Desert. Note:
As of May 2006, Israel now has the highest population of Jews in the
world, for the first time since 70 AD. An interesting Bible study by
Chuck Missler on Ezekiel’s 430 days that shows Bible
prophecy EXACTLY predicting the very day that Israel became a nation in
1948 and when they got Jerusalem in 1967! Additional supporting facts below:
Leviticus 26:32-35 And I will
bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein
shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen,
and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be
desolate, and your cities waste. Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as
it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even
then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths. As long as it lieth
desolate it shall rest; because it did
not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
Look at the
real history of the physical state of Israel up until Israel became
a nation again. It was desolate and few lived there. Now the “Palestinians”
suddenly want the land. The spiritual state of Israel will be developed
and led back to Yeshua through the great tribulation.
Leviticus 26:44-46 And yet
for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies,
I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor
them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them:
for I am the LORD their God. But I will for their sakes
remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of
the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their
God: I am the LORD. These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which
the LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai
by the hand of Moses.
God is not done with Israel. Even though they don’t follow after
the Messiah, for their sakes, God will not forget His covenant with their
ancestors. But how does Israel becoming a nation again fit in with the timing
of the end-times?
Matthew 24:32-42 Now learn
a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth
forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall
see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily
I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these
things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but
my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of
Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the
days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying
and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall
also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field;
the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding
at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
fig tree symbolizes Israel [Hosea 9:10, Jeremiah 24:1-10, Joel 1:7]
and on May 14, 1948 Israel sprouted forth leaves and has been growing ever
since. This is
Israel’s prophesied reappearance. As stated in Matthew 24:32-34,
the generation that sees the fig tree put forth its leaves will not pass
until all these things be fulfilled.
Sumatra quake’s awesome power 9.3 temblor ripped 800-mile
gash in Earth’s crust(May 20,
2005) - The monster earthquake that ravaged Sumatra and the
Andaman Islands in December, killing 300,000 people in a tsunami
that crossed the entire Indian Ocean, was of such epic proportions
that even scientists accustomed to puzzling out the complexity of
Earth’s behavior are awed. They warn that similar disastrous
earthquakes may lie ahead. Consider the almost unbelievable effects
of the quake revealed by the latest analyses:
Without warning, it ripped a deep gash in the Earth’s
crust for more than 800 miles, and the rupture sped from south
to north at more than a mile and a half per second.
It made the entire Earth “ring like a bell”
as its seismic signals caused the planet’s crust to vibrate
in oscillations picked up by seismographs worldwide -- from
instruments emplaced in the steppes of Russia to others buried
beneath the Antarctic ice sheet.
It triggered an 11-minute swarm of 14 small quakes nearly
7,000 miles away, near the slopes of Alaska’s unstable
Mount Wrangell volcano.
It released the energy of 100 billion tons of TNT -- more
than the power of a thousand 1-megaton hydrogen bombs.
The waves of the tsunami it created were so high as they
crossed the Indian Ocean that satellites orbiting overhead had
no trouble identifying them through radar measurements of the
“The sheer size of the event is so awesome. It is nature
at its most formidable, and it has been humbling to all of us who
have studied it,” said Thorne Lay, director of the Institute
of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at UC Santa Cruz, who organized
the scientific teams that conducted the seismic autopsy. “Even
among seismologists, we call this a monster earthquake.” Roger
Bilham, a leading geophysicist at the University of Colorado, saw
the quake as a warning: “This should be a wake-up call that
conservative seismic forecasts may not serve society well,”

While Rabbis Make Call to Pray Psalm 83, Ancient Book of Psalms Found
in Ireland Bog, Open to Same Psalm(July
26, 2006) - Irish archaeologists today, confirmed an incredible
find by a construction worker who was digging up a bog near Ireland’s
midlands, last week, when “just beyond the bucket of his bulldozer,
he spotted something.” Pat Wallace, director of the National Museum
of Ireland, remarked, “This is really a miracle find. There’s
two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all,
it’s unlikely that something this fragile could survive buried
in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before
it was destroyed, is incalculably more amazing.” According to
AOL News, The 20-page book of Psalms, dated back to
the years 800-1000, and was found open to Psalm 83, in which
God hears complaints of other nations’ attempts to wipe out the
name of Israel. The discovery becomes even more miraculous with the
fact that Jerusalem’s Chief Rabbinate, Monday, called for worldwide
prayer on behalf of Israel, to begin on Tuesday; one of the texts given
to pray was Psalm 83. more...
Psalm 83 Keep not thou silence,
O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine
enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the
head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted
against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them
off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more
in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent:
they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and
the Ishmaelites; [generically
Arabs of the East, southern Jordon and Saudi Arabia]
of Moab, [Central Jordan] and the Hagarenes;
after the refugee Hagar, mother of Ishmael, Syria and Arabia]
Gebal, and Ammon [Southern Jordan],
and Amalek [Sinai Desert]; the Philistines
[Gaza Strip Area] with the inhabitants
of Tyre; [Southern Lebanon] Assur
[Syria/Iraq] also is joined with them:
they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. Do unto them as unto
the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. Make
their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as
Zebah, and as Zalmunna: Who said, Let us take to ourselves
the houses of God in possession.
[This is exactly the claim of these Muslim nations now, their right
to the land of Israel] O my God, make them like a wheel;
as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and
as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with
thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
Fill their faces with shame; that they may
seek thy name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled
for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That
men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most
high over all the earth.
This brings to mind what Ezekiel 38:8; 18-23 says about the armies
of Gog/Magog that come from the North to attack Israel. God “will
plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon
him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him,
an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.”
We could be very well seeing the beginning of the
Gog/Magog invasion. If anyone has been reading my
mailings, you know the alliance is already there and strong between
all the players in the Gog/Magog invasion, and now with Israel defending
herself, the ones’ prophesied to attack Israel are furious. Iran,
Turkey, Russia, Syria, and the generic Middle East Muslim community
along with many here in America are blaming everything on Israel. Here
in Seattle today,
a Muslim man shot up a Jewish Federation killing one woman and injuring
five others. He said he was angry at Israel. Anyone not seeing what
is going on better take off the blinders. It’s time to wake up!
I don’t know if this is really it, but I’ve been presenting
the same information that makes me think it is.
Is it all just coincidence? I don’t think so. How perfectly
Psalm 83 fits into what is going on, even naming names, validates it.
This kind of timing and world publicity is God’s provision. We’re
seeing more and more Biblical ancient text in the news, and with the
timing of this one and world events, not to mention it was found opened
to Psalm 83, I just can’t accept that as mere coincidence. The
earth and solar system along with all the laws that govern physics didn’t
just coincidentally happen. What timing to bring to the world’s
attention what God dictated would happen through His prophets thousands
of years ago. For more on the planned nature of creation...
Evidence of creation and the myth of coincidental creation:
Israel: Gaza pullout moving quickly (August
17, 2005) - Unarmed Israeli troops and police went door to door
at the settlements, appealing to settlers to leave and threatening to
move them by force. Some soldiers convinced protesters to leave after
embracing them and joining them in song and prayer. At an evening briefing,
Maj. Gen. Dan Harel, whose troops are carrying out the evacuation, declared
the operation a “victory for us all,” including soldiers,
police and the settlers. The situation was still “touch and go,”
Harel said, but the argument that “we are one people” would
win over remaining resisters. Although there were few reports of
violence Wednesday, a Jewish settler in the West Bank grabbed a gun
from an Israeli guard and shot dead three Palestinians in the Shilo
settlement, Israeli police said. Two Palestinians were wounded. A Jewish
man from the nearby Shvut Rahel settlement was arrested. Israeli Prime
Minister Ariel Sharon condemned the attack. His office said in a written
statement, “The prime minister views with great severity the Jewish
terrorist actions directed against innocent Palestinians out of the
warped thought that out of this action the disengagement could be brought
to a halt.” more...
Zephaniah 2:3-7 Seek ye the
LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment;
seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in
the day of the LORD’s anger. For Gaza
shall be forsaken, and
Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive
at the noon day, and Ekron
shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the
nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against
you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy
thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. And the sea coast shall
be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And
the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall
feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in
the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away
“And Ashkelon left in ruins“ Ashkelon is
one of the original five cities of Philistia (Palestine) and is still
called Ashkelon today and is in the Gaza strip. Ahkelon is a beautiful
seaport city in mid Gaza just north of Gaza City and just south of Ashdod
on the Mediterranean Sea. “At midday Ashdod will be emptied
and Ekron uprooted. Woe to you who live by the sea, O Kerethite people;
the word of the Lord is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines.“
Ashdod is another sea port city north of Ashkelon and west of Ekron.
Ekron lies inland and is just west of Beth Shemesh (Hebron). The Kerethite
(NIV) people, or Cherethites (KJV) are a tribe from Philistia that inhabited
the Gaza region spoken of in Ezekiel 25:16; NIV “..therefore
this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am about to stretch out my hand
against the Philistines, and I will cut off the Kerethites
and destroy those along the coast.” It hasn’t happened
as yet, but, as Gaza is being abandoned, the Kerethites (Palestinians)
are being cut off. We are watching God gather His people back
to Israel. (Aliyah, Kumah) He is causing them to ’abandon’
Gaza. (The pullout) He is gathering the remnants of Baal to
Gaza. Nayef Hawatmeh, head of DFLP is returning to set up again.
And I am certain as the days pass and
the pullout is complete you will see all sorts of terrorists heading
to Gaza. Keep watching.
Zechariah 14:1-3 Behold, the day
of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst
of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle;
and the city shall be taken, and the houses
rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth
into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be
cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and
fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
Could we soon see the dividing of Israel for peace? If that were to happen,
Israelis would have to move to Israeli areas or risk falling prey to their
new Islamic neighbors. We know what has happened in Gaza with the pullout.
How long would a Jew last remaining there? Their houses will be rifled and
I’m sure women will get ravished if they were to remain. But half
is described as remaining. This means that it can’t be the time of
Jacob’s trouble because Christ makes it clear that running to the
mountains is the only safe place to be. From there, they are taken to the
wilderness and protected from the antichrist and his master Lucifer the
dragon. Revelation 12
Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets
shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Luke 21:7,8 And they asked him,
saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there
be when these things shall come to pass? And he said, Take heed
that ye be not deceived: for many shall
come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time
draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
- Quote from website: “Many now expect the return of their awaited
Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha,
Krishna, or the Imam Mahdi. Millions now know that the Teacher who fulfills
all these expectations is already living among
us. Maitreya, the World Teacher, has not come alone, but with
a group of wise Teachers who have long guided humanity from behind the

My friend has the book “The Secret” and I just had the
chance to check out this book. She believes it brings her closer
to God. That it teaches that God is energy. Here is what the lighthouse
reports and I checked it out it says exactly that. I told her the
book is wrong. “We are the creators not only of
our own destiny but also of the Universe ... We are all connected,
and we are all One” (p. 175). “No
matter who you thought you were, now you know the Truth of Who You
Really Are. You are the master of the Universe. You are the heir
to the kingdom. You are the perfection of Life”
( p. 183). “You are God in a physical body ...
You are all power ... You are all intelligence ... You are the creator”
( p. 164). We are co-creators of our life with God. We are both
creating and being created at the same time. The universe is not
some magic genie that’s says, “Your wish is my command,”
bringing you any car, house, or amount of money you desire. The
Secret does not exist to satisfy your every wish but to help us
become the kind of people God can use to make His ultimate wish
come true - Heaven on Earth and inside each one of us.
I shelled out the five bucks and just watched the silly movie. It
is basically a seminar on achieving your wants and needs.... It’s
basically telling you that you create your future by what you think
and feel today. If you dwell on all the bad things in your life,
you are basically attracting more of the same for your future. The
secret is the power of attraction. What you vision for yourself
and actually feel the goodness of the visions of your future will
be made manifest in your future........ You create your own future.....
no god, no spiritual higher power, just you and your mind which
is capable of making anything you visualize come to pass. So Rock,
if you really feel good about Victoria’s secret, you can easily
incorporate that into your future. There are some basic themes that
are not completely false about the secret, but overall it’s
such an Anti-God process that it’s beyond blasphemous. But
people do tend to make their futures by what they dwell on (self
fulfilling prophecy’s) that there “seems” to be
some ring of truth to this “secret“. I can see how people
like Oprah will take it to to the spiritual level and do much harm
to people. But I also agree with the secret that we should not dwell
on negative all the time, for it effects how we think and do.....
which really does affect our futures. Now it getting you a new bike
as one kid in the seminar..... or the sexy looking wife of your
dreams..... well, I just can’t buy into all that. It basically
says that you can create your own being by the power of your mind......
make things in the world happen just by visualizing them and feeling
very good those thoughts and visions..... its the feeling good about
it that gives it the power to be made manifest. To an extent the
things we experience tomorrow are affected by what we do today,
and a good attitude helps tremendously....... but creating or making
manifest things to get by the power of your mind........ whoooo
boy, that’s taking things way way out there. It has the potential
of being the next big movement from the same old story of “you
decide what’s right and wrong for you and you make your own
How do we know antichrists?
1 John 2:17-26 And the world
passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of
God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and
as ye have heard that antichrist
shall come, even now are there many antichrists;
whereby we know that it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had
been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they
went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all
of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all
things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth,
but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?He is antichrist, that denieth the
Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same
hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father
also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard
from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning
shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the
Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal
life. These things have I written unto you concerning them that
Matthew 24:9-10 Then shall they
deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be
hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be
offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Persecution has many forms from things easy to brush off such as mocking
to the losing of ones life. As time goes on it is apparent that things are
getting worse, evidenced by the reaction to just bringing up the name of
Jesus and the reactions that brings.
As laid out in the documentaryExpelled: No
Intelligence Allowed, the higher educational system has a strong
bias against the origins as laid out in the Bible. For those that hold to
the scriptural account of creation, we are viewed as “flat-earthers”
lacking the scientific understanding needed to break free of the constraints
of religious belief.
There is an attack on the Biblical narrative of creation using a theory
put forth as fact, Darwinian evolution. I actually believe that science
proves the creation narrative when taking into account events like the flood
and the pre-flood world according to scripture. I recommend watching Kent
Hovind's video series
Creation Science Evangelism for more of the science that proves creation
and a greater understanding of how we got from creation to here. You can
also read more on the
The Creation vs. Evolution Debate.
While Christians in the West deal primarily with the lesser forms of
persecution, there are believers in Eastern nations such as China, North
Korea and Muslim nations who are killed for their belief.
Could this be
a prelude to our “Krystallnacht“?Constance Cumbey(July 28, 2008) - See
In 1938 a crazed Jewish young man, Peter Grynspan, distraught over
his parent’s deportation to a Polish ghetto, walked into a Nazi
office and killed a German military official. This was the incident
the Nazis seized upon to rally mass violence against the Jews which
culminated in the ugly Krystallnacht in which thousands of Jewish owned
businesses had their glass shattered and shops destroyed. Then the already
victimized storeowners and other Jews were forced to pay reparations
for the cleanup. They were also forced to wear ugly yellow stars. There
was an ominous parallel here in the USA yesterday. A crazed out of work
man, with a media reported hatred of liberals and their churches allegedly
walked into a Knoxville, Tennessee Unitarian Universalist Church and
opened fire. At least seven were wounded. Two have so far died. Because
of a note left in the car, the matter is being investigated as a “hate
crime.” What is ignored in the headline coverage are the statements
of witnesses contained in the article: He was angry at all religion.
He expressed anger two years ago at a neighbor who told him she graduated
from Bible School. He said his parents had forced him to go to church
as a child. His hatred of religion was certainly not confined to “liberal”
ones. The emphasis in the mainstream media coverage seems to be “hate
crimes” against “liberal churches” -- not Christianity
and the Bible in general. I am fearful of the media spin being put upon
this one. I have collected many New Age books that say when people learn
what the churches are all about, they will burn them down. Edgar Cayce
(A.R.E.) activist Gina Cerminara wrote one such book,
Insights for the Age of Aquarius. I rather suspect the
Alliance of Civilizations will seize upon this as part of their
implementation agenda. They have already written at length that
a greater threat than terrorism to the world was ’religious extremism’
in the USA. They spelled out with great exactitude that this was more
dangerous than terrorism because it was the “extremism”
that would breed terrorism. Given the recent publicity characterizing
Fellowship Foundation as Christian extremism and given that we know
that at the very highest levels it was a New Age stalking horse with
interlocking directorates with the highest leadership of powerful New
Age groups such as Institute for Noetic Sciences and World Business
Academy, I suspect that great hay will be made of this with little or
no attention paid to the assailant’s total hatred of all religion.
The same tactic was tried by New Age leadership after Jim Jones and
his People’s Temple blew up in 1977. The New Agers promptly blamed
the entire organization and final fatal episode on “Christian
fundamentalism.” I am happy to have played some role, albeit perhaps
small, in returning Jim Jones to the New Age community of which he was
always such a stalwart part. It would be very nice as the charges of “Christian
extremism” advance to likewise hand them back Fellowship Foundation
and the Prayer Breakfast Network. Using psychological terms, what appears
to be happening is called “projection.” The New Agers are
busy projecting their own hateful agenda on to us, successfully using
the religious subversion networks they created to marginalize and silence
those of us sound the alarms!
Atheist websites continue to mischaracterize Jim Jones as “Christian”
seeking “righteousness.” I am certain by now they know
he was not, but the lie is convenient for those seeking to put down
monotheism in general and Christianity in particular. We need to keep
a close and wary eye on this one.
Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets
shall rise, and shall deceive many.
1 Timothy 4:1-3 Now the Spirit
speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from
the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot
iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which
God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe
and know the truth.
2 Timothy 4:1-4
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall
judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; preach
the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort
with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they
will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they
heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn
away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 Now
we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and
by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind,
or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from
us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by
any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling
away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who
opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that
is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing
himself that he is God.
This falling away from the Truth has been happening for some time, manifesting
itself throughout history and leading people away from God. However I believe
its final culmination will contribute to the worship of the man of sin.
In order for a usurper to come in with signs and lying wonders to deceive
the world, the world must not have a solid foundation in the Truth. If they
knew and believed the Truth, the lie would be easier to see.
However, related to the persecution of Christians, they would rather
believe a lie because of pride they reject the authority of God and His
ways. Historically this leads to the elimination of God's people and during
time of great tribulation this will be raised to a fever. Those without
a strong foundation and belief will quickly turn from their Savior to save
their temporal life, losing their eternal one.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 This know
also, that in the last days perilous times shall
come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent,
fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Sign of the end (Matthew 24:1-14)
Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity
shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
1 John 4:7,8 Beloved, let us love
one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of
God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for
God is love.
The sign of a God-less world is the actions of those living in the world.
The sign of the end-times of the love of many waxing cold. When we see mass
support for the murder of unborn babies, that may be a sign. Then there
are these kinds of stories becoming more prevalent. Sign of the condition
of so many lost souls...
They Sold Their Souls for Rock n Roll - I think one of the biggest signs
of the times that we are overlooking is the music revolution that started
in the 1950’s. Is it a coincidence that it happened AFTER the biggest
prophetic sign of the end times, the re-birth of Israel in 1948? I don’t
think so. Here is a four part series produced by Cross TV that gives you
the shocking truth of were the roots of today’s popular music comes
from and what effect it has on all of us. I will encourage you to watch
all four episodes. UPDATE: Thanks to John (one of our readers) Here is where

Bloody Weekend: 32 Shot, 2 Stabbed, 6 DeadCBS Chicago(April
20, 2008) - A violent and deadly
weekend continues in Chicago. At least 12 people have been shot, two
of them killed, since Saturday morning. Two others were stabbed in a
home invasion. This comes after at least 20 people were shot, four of
them killed, from Friday night through early Saturday.
Deception built super-secret abortion clinicWorld Net Daily(August 29, 2007) -

questioning whether the abortion provider can mislead officials without
Police smash global pedophile ringAssociated Press(June 17, 2007) -
British police, aided by U.S. authorities,

videos of children being abused, investigating more than 700 suspects
worldwide and rescuing 31 children in a 10-month probe, officials said

Says Zell: Military shortages, Social Security
crisis, and illegal immigration all linked to abortion(March 9, 2007) - It hasn’t gotten
widespread play yet, but former U.S. Sen. Zell Miller made a little
news this week in Macon when he declared that abortion has
contributed to the military’s manpower shortage, the Social Security
crisis, and the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.
“How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the
last 30 years? Here is the brutal truth that no one dares to
mention: We’re too few because too many of our babies have been
killed,” Miller said. “Over 45 million since Roe v. Wade in 1973. If
those 45 million children had lived, today they would be defending
our country, they would be filling our jobs, they would be paying
into Social Security,” the former Georgia governor said. “Still, we
watch as 3,700 babies are killed every single day in America.
The comments were made at a Tuesday night fund-raiser for a local anti-abortion
counseling center. State Sen. Nancy Schaefer (R-Turnerville), who has
become an ideological ally of Miller on the abortion issue, made a similar
statement almost exactly a year ago, but backed off upon press inquiries.
Somehow, we don’t think Miller’s inclined to throw himself
Police: Dad stabs baby boy in back(March 15, 2007) -
A man stabbed his 11-month-old son in
the back, threw the boy out the car window with the kitchen knife stuck
in his back and then drove away, police said Thursday. His 5-year-old
son managed to escape unharmed. “He was conscious, but the knife
was buried all the way to the handle,” said Speedway Detective
Jim Thiele. The boy, Devin Chandler, was in stable condition at a hospital
Thursday. Officers had found Kevin Chandler’s car but were searching
for him. Thiele said Chandler is homeless and had been staying with
some friends or family. Police think 31-year-old Chandler and the boy’s
mother, Angela Limbrock, were arguing as they prepared to leave Limbrock’s
apartment on the west side of Indianapolis Wednesday night.
Mass. elevator blast kills 2 people(March 15, 2007) -
A man pulled his estranged girlfriend
into an elevator in the office building where she worked and ignited
a 2-gallon container of gasoline, killing them both, authorities and
witnesses said. Authorities found the bodies of a man and woman inside
the elevator after the explosion, and police were investigating it as
a murder-suicide. “Once again we have an ugly specter of domestic
violence here in Massachusetts,” Essex District Attorney Jonathan
Blodgett said. He identified the two dead as Raymond Echavarria, 23,
and Xiomara Robles, 21. Witnesses said Echavarria pulled Robles into
the elevator. Shortly after, police said, there was an explosion inside
the elevator, engulfing it in flames. Police found the gasoline container,
a lighter, and a knife at the scene.
4 killed in NYC shootout; motive unknown(March 15, 2007) -
A gunman wearing a fake beard and carrying
100 rounds of ammunition fatally shot a pizzeria employee and two unarmed
volunteer police officers in Greenwich Village before other officers
shot him to death, the mayor said Thursday. Authorities were investigating
why David Gavin, 32, went into a pizzeria around 9 p.m. Wednesday, asked
for a menu and then shot an employee 15 times in the back before fleeing,
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. A neighborhood resident, Tina Lourenco,
said she saw the gunman and recognized him as a former employee of the
pizzeria. Nicholas Todd Pekearo and Eugene Marshalik, two of the city’s
nearly 4,500 auxiliary police officers, responded to the shooting and
approached Gavin, who crossed the street and fired at them.

Is It Just Me, or Are People Really Getting
Meaner?(September 22, 2006)
- Is it just me, or are people really
getting meaner? It seems that much of what I hear and read these days
indicates that people’s actions and attitudes are increasingly
rude, crude, and downright cantankerous. Has it always been this way?
If it was, I don’t remember it. Granted, there is much to be upset
about nowadays. People are being taxed out of their minds. Governmental
meddling has never been more intrusive. Savings accounts are down. Indebtedness
is up. Most newspaper headlines serve only to raise our blood pressure.
Americans fear the IRS more than they do Osama bin Laden. Many Americans
are working two and even three jobs just to make ends meet. Hollywood
used to provide respite from day to day pressures. No more. All they
do now is contribute to raising stress levels. Ditto for most major
league sports. And when is the last time we could trust anything our
congressman told us? Come to think of it, we can’t trust much
of anything anybody tells us. Egad! I’m getting angry just writing
this column. However, is it really obligatory that we lose our warmth
and compassion? Is everyone who disagrees with us really our enemy?
Can we not remain truly uncompromising for a principle without becoming
a raving, sadistic madman? Furthermore, it doesn’t seem to matter
in what “camp” one finds oneself. The story is the same.
Conservatives can be just as mean-spirited as liberals and vice versa.
Christians just as contemptuous as atheists. In fact, I know unbelievers
whom I would far rather be around than some believers. more...
Behind The Bloodshed: The Untold Story of America's Mass KillingsUSA Today
(2006 - 2015) - To analyze mass killings, USA TODAY used the
FBI's definition: four or more killed, not including suspects, in an
event. The killing may stretch over a day or more and some distance,
especially if it includes killings committed in flight or against
targeted people. It does not include an extended "cooling-off
period" to distinguish this kind of crime from the acts of serial
killers. Unlike gun control advocates who just count shootings, USA
TODAY analyzed all mass killings, regardless of weapon. That adds
significant diversity to the types of killers and victims and
produces a fuller portrait of this type of crime. USA TODAY began by
collecting the FBI's Supplemental Homicide Reports for 2006-11. This
data, created by local police and collated by the FBI, provide
details on each murder. However, Florida does not report to the FBI;
the District of Columbia and Nebraska only started doing so in 2009.
And murders on American Indian reservations, college campuses and
military bases may not be included. To fill these gaps, USA TODAY
used local news reports and official records. USA TODAY did the same
for mass killings in 2012-13, for which FBI data has not been
released. USA TODAY cross-checked each FBI report with local news
reports and sometimes with local law enforcement agencies. USA TODAY
found that 36 mass killings reported in the FBI data were erroneous.
In some, other types of crime were miscoded as murders. In others,
miscodes created a mass killing where no crime had occurred. USA
TODAY excluded these from its analysis. USA TODAY also found 26 mass
killings not recorded in FBI data. Sometimes, a killer’s victims,
separated by a few miles or hours, were reported as separate cases.
Example: An Alabama man killed his mother and torched her house. He
drove 12 miles to his uncle’s house, where he sprayed the front
porch with gunfire, killing five and wounding one. Then he killed
his grandmother, who lived next door, as she stood in a doorway. As
he fled in a car, he shot eight more, three fatally, before killing

to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light
and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
2 Timothy 3:1-11 This know also,
that in the last days perilous
times shall come. For men shall be lovers
of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient
to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers,
false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of
God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away. For of this sort are they
which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins,
led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to
the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses,
so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning
the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall
be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was. But thou hast fully
known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity,
patience, Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch,
at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out
of them all
the Lord delivered me.
2 Peter 3:3-10 Knowing this first,
that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their
own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since
the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning
of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the
word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the
water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed
with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now,
by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day
of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But,
beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is
with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will
come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away
with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the
earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Hosea 6:1-3 Come, and let
us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath
smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days
will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall
live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know
the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come
unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
So to the Lord, 1 day = 1,000 years. Christ died and rose again around
32 AD. By this standard, two days would be 2,000 years. After 2,000 years
the Lord will revive us and in the 3,000th year, He will raise us up. The
millennium is the 7,000th year of earth’s history. This rings true
to the Sabbath day, only for the Lord, the 7th day is the 7,000th - 8,000th
year, or the 7th millennium! During the millennium, the earth will be at
rest under Christ’s perfect rule from Jerusalem.
Genesis 2:2,3 And on the seventh
day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh
day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh
day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his
work which God created and made.
