Magnetic Field Imbalance May Be Cause For Bird Deaths

 

Polar Shift Started

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The recent deaths of birds literally falling from the sky in two locations on earth, may be linked to a Magnetic Field Imbalance indicating that the Pole Shift that is predicted for 2012 has started already. Birds use the magnetic field for navigation and could be using it for much more than we can understand today. But not only birds died an unusual death… Could the Earth’s magnetic fields be causing the recent die-off of thousands of birds and fish? Scientists believe so, along with environmental imbalances.

In the United States, thousands of Blackbirds suddenly came dropping from the sky in the state of Arkansas over the past holidays for which no official reason for cause of death has been communicated by authorities. Only few days later, hundreds of other stories from all around the world emerged reporting similar phenomena.

Here’s a closer look into the Earth’s Magnetic Fields. What are exactly and how do birds use them to migrate?

Earth's Magnetic Fields

To better understand the working of our planet’s magnetic field, compare it with a bar magnet where the positive and negative represent our North and South Poles. Our magnetic field is a protection shield creating a sort of a bubble around the Earth to protect us from solar storms and winds, asteroids and other objects floating around in space. Scientists explain this magnetic shield due to the Earth’s inner core’s electric currents. These currents circulate at speeds comparable to the working of a dynamo, caused in part by the rotation of the Earth (spinning at 1000 km per hour). Since the effect works similar to an electric generator, the Earth’s magnetic field interacts with the particles from solar storms and winds and in turn creates a so called aurora borealis near the Poles.

According to Goethe-Universitat scientists in Frankfurt, Germany, birds use photoreceptor cells located in the bird’s right eye to ’see’ the Earth’s magnetic fields. These receptors create shades of light, which guides the birds on their treks North & South and keeps them on track.

The question now is, could the changes in the Earth’s Magnetic Field be causing the deaths of 1000’s of birds?

The same university in Frankfurt made a study revealing that birds would lose their bearings in case they would not see the Magnetic Field and hurt themselves or even die. Not long ago, in 2008 NASA reported a massive breach in the Earth’s Magnetic Shield, which was detected by a spacecraft of theirs named THEMIS. Enormous geomagnetic storms can easily be caused when solar winds get through this breach and it is very possible that such geomagnetic storm has directly caused the deaths of the numerous birds across the globe.

To conclude, magnetic storms can be the cause of several phenomena that we are seeing on Earth lately. Besides birds (Blackbirds, Penguins, Eagles, and Pelicans to name a few) falling down dead from hunger and exhaustion, radiation may exist by high solar power, radio transmission may be impacted, and our planet can be bombarded with high-energy charged particles due to this breach in the Magnetic Field or Shield. Furthermore, such magnetic storms can cause Earth crust changes, leading to landslides, mudslides, volcano eruption and earthquakes. Anyone seen any of those recently? You bet!

Scientists saying this…yet where do you read or hear about this in the news? Exactly! Instead we are being told by ‘them’ that this is all normal, that we just have more accurate information now than before, and that Global Warming is the result of exhaust gases… Make up for yourself and spread the word!

Missing Heaven By 18 Inches

 

The debate rages on over what it takes to obtain eternal life. With thousands of religions in the world claiming that theirs is the “only way to heaven”.

Upon a close examination of all religions, they have a few things in common.

1. They require you to do some type of work.

2. They require you to adhere to the rules of their organization.

3. Their leaders are all mortal human beings.

Only true Christianity is based not upon an organization but instead, on a person. Jesus claimed that He alone was the only way to heaven and that failure to receive Him as Lord and Savior meant a person would die in their sins.

1. Christianity is not based on anything you can do, but what Jesus has already done.

2. You cannot keep the law of God perfectly, no matter how hard you try. That is why you need a sinless Savior.

3. The leader of Christianity is Jesus, the Eternal Creator of all things.

If you asked most people about Jesus Christ they would tell you that they know who Jesus is. The problem is that knowing who Jesus is, is not enough to have eternal life.

A person can know intellectually many things about Jesus and even spend their whole life going to church, reading a Bible and studying the life of Jesus. None of these will give you eternal life.

Jesus said that on the day that He returns to earth and requires all men to give an account of their life to Him, this is what many will say to Him:

Matthew 7:22-23 “Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

“I never knew you…”

The Greek word for “know” here is Ginosko, “to have close and personal relationship with”, and “to know by experience”

Jesus said the key to heaven and finding eternal life is not whether you know Jesus, but does He know you. It is possible to know everything there is to know about Jesus but not know Him personally.

There is a moment in a person’s life where they make the transition from and intellectual knowledge of Jesus, to a heart felt belief. You can say with your mouth that you believe in Jesus, but you must also believe this in your heart in order for salvation to take effect.

Romans 10:9 “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

The Lord knows the exact moment when you go from knowing about Him to actually knowing Him personally.

If you mentioned various names of people that I have met in my life, I could tell you that “I know them”. The truth is though that perhaps only one or two could I say that I have intimate knowledge of.

How does a person go from general knowledge about someone to an intimate knowledge? You would need to go through a few struggles in your life in which this person was a part of your trial.

Perhaps a member of your family became very sick and then eventually passed away. A true friend would be right by your side through the darkest moments of that loss. As a result of going through something that was so painful, you would have grown very close to a friend who was at your side through all the distress you felt.

When Job finished the trial that he went through with the Lord, he said something very interesting at the very end of the story:

Job 42:5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.”

In other words, “Lord at the beginning of this terrible trial that I went through in which all of my children died, I lost everything materially that I had in this world, and the loss of my own health to the point of my death, I only knew about you from what I heard other people said. Now that the trail is over, I can see with my own eyes what you are really like.”

Therein is the key to eternal life:

To know Jesus through your own suffering and that He is so very close to you and remains close by your side through all the most difficult moment of your life. Paul wrote that the way that He came into the closest relationship with Jesus, was when he suffered:

Philippians 3:10 “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death…”

Yes a person can know about Jesus intellectually all of their life but never believe in their heart and make the relationship personal.

How far is Heaven? Not far really.

Just 18 inches, the distance from your head to your heart.

The Magoi

 

6 January 2010: The above image is an artistic rendering of thethree Magoi (Magi). In fact, there had to have been quite an entourage who accompanied the Magoi, primarily because of the basic fact that no one makes a 1,000+ mile round trip journey across the desert between Mesopotamia and Israel on foot without a supply and life sustaining caravan and significant numbers of mounted cavalry for protection. The actual number of gentile visitors from the east was probably closer to 300 than just 3. It's a minor miracle that the illegitimate Roman puppet King Herod did not think the appearance of this caravan was the advance guard of a Parthian Empire invasion force.
The importance of the whole story about the Magoi is quite likely unknown by most Christians. That's because we've not spent much time learning about it, even though it is Scripture, Old Testament prophetic Scripture at that.
Oh, we all know and have visualized one way or another the "We Three Kings" Christmas carol, and have seen Nativity scene imagery like the above for the sum of our lives, but that's not the half of it. There's more... so much more to the story.
The more I think about it, the more I am astounded by the fact that the GENTILE Magoi who came out of the Parthian Empire and made this tremendous journey did so after fervently holding to the prophet Daniel's detailed prophecy (9:24-27) concerning the coming of the Hebrew Messiah for over 600 years, and waited generation after generation for a very specific sign, and all the while knowing the precise number of days until the Messiah's birth.
And then once that sign appeared and the number of days had elapsed they rounded up the multiple parts of a large caravan and the water and provisions for the entire group's survival, plus the gifts for the object of their 500+ year devotion for what had to be a round trip of something well in excess of 1,100 miles across barren desert.... I stand here in awe thinking about it.
The caravan was quite probably a round trip from Seleucia to Jerusalem and back, on foot and by beast of burden, of GENTILE believers coming from the Magoi's descendents of Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire and Alexander's and the Seleucid Empires to the Parthain Empire of the Roman Era.
That these GENTILES, these Magoi, had clung to and fervently believed in the exquisitely detailed God-breathed prophecy of Daniel concerning the coming birth of the Messiah for hundreds and hundreds of years, through all of the events, wars, and tumults that had occurred in this crossroads region of the known world, is without question the greatest account of the prophetic Word of God causing belief in the God of Israel among gentiles in history.
Having been in those same Middle Eastern deserts, such a specifically purposeful journey undertaken 2,000 years ago is mindboggling to me. These gentiles from the regions and lands of Israel's captivity knew the details of, believed in and all the while eagerly awaited the birth of the Messiah. And the Jews, for the most part, due to their disobediance and the spiritual blindness and deafness placed upon them by the Covenant of Moab, besides the Covenant of Horeb, (Deuteronomy 29) knew nothing of His coming.
And here we are, knowing in detail that the days of time which are left until the advent of Daniel's 70th Week are all but palpable... just stand in awe and in praise of God brothers and sisters, just stand in awe and praise to be a living part of all this.

Do you have a Sense of God’s Presence?

 

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith . . .” (Ephesians 3:17).
A good friend asked me, “Do you fell you are adequately experiencing the presence and power of the Holy Spirit?” That is a probing question every Christian should pause and consider.
I firmly believe that every born again believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, but not every believer is yielded to His control. Our experience of His divine presence depends upon our yielding to Him moment by moment. If the Holy Spirit is to have a larger part of our lives we must make a deliberate choice and allow Him to take control.
The Spirit wants to fill our lives so that Christ may settle down and make Himself feel completely at home as a permanent resident in our hearts (Eph. 3:17). Our prayer should be that Christ would settle down, even now, in our hearts and take control as the rightful owner.
Imagine what it would be like to experience the “fullness of God” (v. 19). Paul was praying that we may be filled up to or unto all the fullness that is in God Himself. That will not take place until we stand complete and perfect in the likeness of Christ at His coming, but it can be our prayer and vision now. Paul was praying that we would be filled and filled and filled and filled forever, as God out of His infinite resources increasingly pours Himself into His redeemed people.
David Brainerd wrote in his diary April 21, 1742, “O My sweet Savior! Who have I but Thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee.” Then he added, “If I had a thousand lives, my soul would gladly have laid them all down at once, to have been with Christ. My soul never enjoyed so much of heaven before; it was the most refined and most spiritual season of communion with God I ever yet felt.”

Signs of the Last Days: Remember Noah

 

Matthew 24:38-39 “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

Jesus said that in the days just before His return, the spiritual condition of men on the earth would be as it was in the days of Noah. During the 100 years that Noah was building the Ark and warning of a coming judgment, people went on with their daily lives with no thought of God, nor the results of their actions. When the Ark was finished, judgment came and it was too late for anyone to be saved.

The Bible describes the fact that in the days of Noah, the thoughts and intention of man was constantly towards evil. Every thought of man’s heart was towards evil. The last time that the world reached a pinnacle where sin abounded to such an extent that it covered the earth, the Lord destroyed all living things by covering the earth with water.

Genesis 6:5-7 “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”

Today, people will wake up and go off to start their day with no thought of God, nor the results of all of their actions throughout the day. One day, just as suddenly as in the days of Noah, Judgment will come again. Jesus will return and remove all those who have recognized their sin and have come to God in repentance and have looked to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Then will begin a time of horrors on the earth the likes of which no one in all of their mind could imagine. Two-thirds of those who dwell on the earth will perish in three series of seven judgments, each of which will grow progressively more severe.

The question is: Are the days in which we live, similar to the days in which Noah lived?

When Paul wrote to Timothy regarding the last days, he told him that “In the last days perilous times would come…” Then he listed a set of negative qualities that would be present in the behavior of men, indicating that this was the generation referred to by Paul’s warning.

2Timothy 3:1-5 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Are people today lovers of themselves?, yes. Is the population of the earth preoccupied with making money and spending money?, yes. Are men proud and boastful?, definitely.

And we can go down the list that Paul gave to Timothy and find that every one of these characteristics listed are present today in the lives of people all over the earth.

During the 100 years that Noah was building the Ark, people passed it everyday and saw before them a stunning reminder of the judgement that God had said would come. Yet everyone not only ignored Noah and the Ark, they laughed and mocked him for even stating that judgement was going to come.

With all the violence and sin that was in the world, there was one man who “Found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Was Noah a perfect man, no of course not. Noah recognized that he was a sinful man and that he needed God. He needed a Savior to cover his sin so that his guilt could be removed and Noah could go on and live his life in a relationship with God. Noah pursued a relationship with God and that is why he found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The rest of the people on the earth cared nothing for God. So the Lord saved the one man who loved Him, out of the earth before the judgment began. Just as Jesus will remove all those who love Him in the last days before the Tribulation begins. There is not a single place in the Bible where the Lord permits those who love Him to be judged along with the rest of the world who does not Love Him.

Genesis 6:8-10 “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.”

Genesis 6:11-13 “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”

Today, we live in a world where most people have no daily thought of God. The thoughts and intentions of their hearts are also continually towards evil. It s not that they cannot be saved, it is that they are unwilling to be saved. Those who have no thought of God are not loved less by Him than those who recognize their need for forgiveness of their sin and look to Jesus as their Savior. God loves the whole world with such intense and fervent love that He was compelled to do something about our sin. He sent His only Son to pay for us. If we desire we can have the forgiveness of all our sins and know that heaven is our destination when we depart this earth. It is up to us, it is our choice.

Peter wrote that one of the signs of the last days and the soon return of Jesus and the coming judgment of the seven year Tribulation, was that men would begin to mock the fact that Jesus is coming soon.

2Peter 3:3-4 “knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to 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 creation.”

2Peter 3:5-7 “For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

When the final generation is living on the earth and sin has once again reached a pinnacle, then men will begin to ridicule those who teach that Jesus return is near. And this they willfully forget; that once in the past God destroyed every living person on the earth by covering it with water. If God did not spare those who would not turn from their sin and turn to God then, He will not spare those who refuse to take Jesus as their Savior now in this final generation.

Then Peter explains why the Lord has seemingly taken so long to return and bring His judgement: He is giving people time to repent. If it has seemed like a long time, remember that God dwells in eternity where there is no passing of time. To Him a thousand years passes as though it were a single day.

How long has it been since Jesus promised to come again, 2,000 years? No, only two days….

2Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

In the Old Testament the Lord stated that “He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, why don’t you turn now and repent.” Judging the world and allowing those who reject Jesus as their Savior to go into everlasting fire is not something that the Lord is looking forward to. That is why He has put it off so long already.

People mistake the longsuffering and patience of God for license to sin as much as they want to. “The Lord doesn’t care if I sin. If He did then why hasn’t He judged me and sent me to Hell already?’

The answer is: Because He loves you so much that He does not want you to go to Hell. That is why He allowed His own Son to die for your sins. It s the reason that judgment has takes over 2,000 years so far since Jesus died. God is patiently waiting for people to change their minds and come to Jesus for Salvation.

But, The Day of the Lord will come. When it does it will be quick and sudden and it will take the world by surprise because most people are not watching for Jesus return. Then when the Lord does come , it will be to remove from the earth all those who have been watching and waiting for Him to come. Soon after the seven year Tribulation will begin by the signing of a seven year peace treaty between Israel and the surrounding nations. At the mid-way point of the seven years, a new world ruler will declare himself to be God. This will begin what Jesus described in Matthew chapter 24 as “The Abomination of Desolation”. This event will trigger the Great Tribulation. For the last 3 1/2 of the 7 years, Jesus will pour out His wrath on the world that has Rejected the sacrifice He made on the Cross and has counted the blood of His covenant as nothing. Two-thirds of those who dwell on the earth during this time will perish in the 21 plagues of those last 3 1/2 years described in Revelation 6-18.

Then Jesus will return to the earth at the end of the seven years with His church to set up His kingdom on the earth for 1,000 years. Righteousness will reign over the whole earth and there will be no rebellion against God any longer.

At the end of the 1,000 years, Jesus will destroy the heavens and the earth and recreate both brand new. Those who had rejected Jesus and awaited their judgment in Hell will be raised to life to stand before Him at the Great White Throne Judgment. All of these will be found guilty of their rejection of Jesus and be cast alive into the lake of fire for eternity.

The Lord is Love, He is the very definition of what Love is. He is also Justice and man has sinned against God and is therefore worthy of judgment. God was willing to withhold that judgment from man and place it upon Jesus for a limited period of time. When a person dies, their fate is sealed and there is no longer any hope for them after they have departed. The decision that they have made to accept or reject Jesus was sealed at the moment of death.

For the living, there is each day of their remaining life to make a decision either for or against Jesus. To make no decision is to be against Him. Only a firm acceptance of Jesus as Savior and Lord guarantees a person escape from Judgment and the sentence of Hell. The Day of the Lord is coming and from the appearance of the way the world is today, it will not be much longer.

2Peter 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”

2Peter 3:11-13 “Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

This morning I am writing from Cebu in the Philippines. A week ago we ordered something from the United States that we needed and could not find here in the Islands. It was sent by the United States Postal service. When I placed the order I was given a tracking number so that I could watch for the arrival of the package. As I have checked the progress of the items I ordered, it came into the Philippines, went through their customs process and then went out to be delivered to me here at my residence. Today the package is set to be delivered and I must watch for the postman. If I did not know that there was something coming, I would not be watching. If I was not watching, the event would happen and I would miss the one who came for me.

The Bible has given us a tracking number for the package of our redemption to be completed. It is set for a certain delivery date. If we are not watching the progress of that delivery it will come and we will miss it.

Jesus is coming soon and then it will be too late for many to be saved. Today is the day to live for the Lord and to tell your friends and family that He is coming soon and that without Jesus there is no hope of eternal life. Do not be afraid to tell them the truth. If you love them you must tell them. If they reject you and your message do not despair. You never know that perhaps in the final moment of their life they will remember what you told them about Jesus and turn to Him and be saved.

The Lord Bless you as you are bold and declare to all those you come into contact with in these last days that Jesus is the only way to Heaven and that eternal life is found only in Him.

Blackbirds Fall From the Sky In 3 States Arkansas, Louisiana and Kentucky

 

Absent a final explanation, wild theories abound concerning reasons Arkansans’ saw black birds fall from sky and fish die off en masse. The event revives superstitions about birds as omens.

[...]

People have tried to link the bird die-off – which is certainly unusual, though not unprecedented – to everything from a sign of biblical end times to chemical conspiracies, shifts in the Earth’s magnetic core, and even proof of UFOs.

Without predictions of Nostradamus World War 3 starts in 2012

 

Looking for the real treath
Lets just think realistically. We will forget all the prophecies and pretend that Nostradamus never existed. There were no prophets in the past. We will forget all the threats from skies as well. 11. planet X called Nibiru is unknown and not even one asteroid is coming to destroy this civilization. No comets, no earthquakes, no pole shifting, tsunamis and so on. Just imagine, there is no danger. Even, if everything will be working fine, I can tell you, end of the world or at least of this "civilization" is very, very near. We will destroy our world in world war 3
Are we living in civilized world?
No, I'm not correct. The world civilization is from civilized. But people are not civilized!!! Or do you think, that developing more and more sophisticated weapons and using them against people with no or weak defense? Why don't we help in Africa, where people really need help? Is this really the sign of intelligence? Are we truly civilized? I don't think so... I believe, there is a lot of you out there having same opinion, but do you think, that things in are going to change? Each of us is a part, tiny part of this huge mechanism. This mechanism called "civilization" cannot run without us and we rely on it as well. We are so close attached to it. We couldn't survive without it. Its all based on the business and money.
Who makes profit from wars?
The question is who runs it, who control this crazy world? Don't use google search or Nostradamus' quatrain finder. Just think about it. It could be politics, but i think there are still small fishes. Did you ever see somebody powerful without money? The more money - the more power. If we will apply this rule, we will find the "people" who ruled us all for centuries. I worked for a while with shares. I was told, there are two types of shares. One of them are gaining in time of war and another in time of peace. I was shocked. The teacher explained me totally calm: "When you will have full storage of old weapons, you have to make room for the newest models. And how to get the customers? Think about it. The scheme is always the same. And will lead to another conflict - world war 3.
The Money beast will like world war 3
Before World War 2 it was still kind of fun, but the Money Beast didn't stop even after Hiroshima and Nagasaki where 240 000 people died in few seconds after Nuclear explosions. The total armament race began all over the world after this blood bath. It was called Cold War. It's just the question of time before global arsenal will be used to wipe out this "civilization" out of the earth. If countries like Iran or South Korea will hold this powerful devices, the world won't be safe place to live.
The end of the world is near says science - Doomsday clock
Doomsday Clock is a symbolic clockface maintained since 1947. It uses the analogy of the human race being at a time that is minutes to midnight where midnight represents catastrophic destruction. The analogy originally represented the threat of global nuclear war (world war 3), but has since evolved to include nuclear weapons, climate-changing technologies and new developments in the life sciences and nanotechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm.
The clock is currently set to five minutes to midnight, having been advanced by two minutes on January 17, 2007. See the jump in 1998? 5 minutes forward. I am afraid the clocks will be in 2012 on 12:00.

Tuesday, December 28, 2010: (Holy Innocents)
Jesus said: “My people, you saw Moses in the vision today as the parallels with Me are many. We were both threatened with death in our infancies. Moses was protected from death by the Pharaoh’s daughter, and I was taken to Egypt with My parents so Herod could not kill Me. Herod killed all the boys up to two years old in Bethlehem, which is the reason for today’s feast honoring these holy, innocent babies. Even today many innocent babies are still being killed by abortion. Moses had a mission to save his people from the Egyptians as he brought them to the Promised Land. I had a mission to save all of humanity from their sins by My death on the cross. Moses celebrated the Passover meal with unleavened bread and the wine. At the Last Supper I also celebrated the Passover meal, but I consecrated the bread and wine into My very Body and Blood. This is a new spiritual manna that gives eternal life at every Mass. When Moses was in the desert, there was miraculous food and water that were multiplied. During My ministry I performed many miracles as well in multiplying the bread and fish for the multitudes of people on two occasions. Moses raised up the bronze serpent to heal the people from their snake bites. I was raised up on a cross and many were healed by the sacrifice of My Blood. There are many such parallels of the Old Testament accounts with the New Testament. As you read the Scripture accounts, you can learn how to be a good Christian by loving Me and your neighbor as yourself.”

Monday, December 27, 2010: (St. John the Evangelist)
Jesus said: “My people, St. John is the one apostle who loved Me most as His Master. He was the only apostle not to be martyred, and he took care of My Blessed Mother in her later years. He wrote his Gospel later with a heavy emphasis on My Resurrection, as he saw the empty tomb in today’s Gospel. He also wrote some letters and the Book of Revelation on Patmos. His writings are words of hope and encouragement for My faithful. His words on eating My Body and drinking My Blood that would give eternal life are very direct and profound. His words about the end times are very connected to My son’s mission of preparation. Continue to proclaim My promises, and keep leading My people to My refuges of protection. Know that in the end I will defeat the evil ones and bring about My Era of Peace.”

Jesus said: “My people, with a steady number of volcanic explosions, you have seen a lot of smoke and particles get placed in the upper atmosphere. With a sufficient amount of clouds and dust, there could be a reduced amount of sunlight that could have a cooling effect on the earth’s temperature. Unless there is an increase in sunspot activity, there may be more global cooling than global warming. Just when scientists think global trends are going in one direction, then natural occurrences create an equilibrium with no net change. The bigger events will be going on with an increase in evil more than any natural disasters. Pray that My faithful will be ready to go to My refuges before more of My faithful are martyred.”

Johanna Brandt Grape Cure For Cancer

 

Sometimes it is worthwhile to come back to an article which may be of benefit, especially when dealing with a subject such as cancer. Johanna Brandt was a South African lady given up for dead by the medical community as terminal, suffering from incurable advanced stomach cancer.

She proceeded to to eat nothing but grapes for several weeks. After being seen again by the doctors they were amazed the cancer had disappeared and left some slight scaring in her stomach. The grape has tannic acid and it is felt this substance is very beneficial in fighting cancer.

I have used this treatment myself and I can say it will eliminate toxins from the body very rapidly. You will lose weight. One can become very weak at first as the toxins and impurities are released into the blood stream. Some people have had to use enemas the first few days. When I use it I sometimes cheat a bit and drink grapefruit juice. You can also drink grape juice. I occasionally have a sip of merlot with it also to kill the pain.

You will notice impurities breaking loose in the lungs and sinus area also. It is part of the cleansing process. It is not a program fro everyone as staying on grapes for several weeks can be quite a challenge. There have been times when I cheated with a can of tuna or fish and then resume the diet. (fish from the gulf these days are of course use at your own risk) A salad once in awhile did not seem to slow the process much as long as you go quickly back to the grape regiment and don’t forge ahead into steaks, cheeseburgers and beer afterwards. I also take some cod liver oil and or coconut oil from time to time with it. In fact I am doing it now as I have just had the swine flu.

You can eat all the grapes you want, it doesn’t matter, the more the better they will just run through you. I generally get by with three or four hand fulls a day with maybe some juice added. If you throw in a handful of almonds, it is almost like a blood transfusion as the protein in almonds is similar to blood protein and likewise for the grape.

I might add the first time I tried this many years ago I managed to go 22 days and lost 30 pounds of mucus and toxins in the process. Afterwards once I began eating again, I never felt better.

Earthquake-Solar Activity Relation

 

Sun Induced Earthquake Activity

There has been a clear correlation proven between Sun Induced Earthquake Activity and Daily Total Earthquake Energy Released. Patrick Geryl’s prediction of the 87 days intervals of solar storms (so far he’s been dead on each time - read previous posts here below) have independently been linked. Dogstarmist.com reported this recently and analyzed George Ure’s findings.

The graph below shows you the correlation between the two remarkable elements that may explain why we are getting more and more intense weather and earth behavior. This week I visited the earthquake-struck Christchurch in New Zealand, which was hit by a 7.2 on the schale of Richter in September 2010 and has since had multiple thousands of aftershocks, causing more than $6 billion in damage thus far. Interestingly enough it has been more than 16,000 years since the previous earthquake struck New Zealand’s third largest city.

All of this activity and Geryl’s predictions to lead up to what he calls Armageddon day on December 21, 2012.

What Is Happening in Arkansas?

 

By John McTernan
Defend and Proclaim the Faith
I have received a flood of inquires about what is happening in Arkansas. It is not clear what has happened, but remember I alerted you to the unusual amount of earthquakes hitting Arkansas since September. There have been over 500 hundred minor earthquakes! The scientists have no idea what is causing these earthquakes.
The quakes are centered near Guy, Arkansas. The fish and bird kills are in the same area. Something very strange is happening in this area, as the earthquakes, fish kill and bird kill are all in the same location.

Sunday, December 26, 2010: (Holy Family Sunday)
Jesus said: “My people, this Sunday is dedicated to My Holy Family, but it is also meant for all families. Just as I called fisherman to be My apostles, I am always searching for souls to pull them into My love. The family is based on love and it is beautiful. A man and woman are joined in marriage with the sacrament of Matrimony. It is love that brought them together for a life long commitment. Just as it is out of love that I have created everything, so it is out of love that children are brought into the world. It is in this family setting of loving parents that the children are raised up to adults. This is why fornication, adultery, and divorce are destroying family life in the way that I meant it to be among you. Marriage is a responsibility in faith as well as living according to My laws. Living together does not have the same commitment in neither faith nor bringing up children. When your society is more concerned with pleasure and materialism instead of living in loving marriages, then you can see the downfall coming in your country. Pray for all married people and that your children see the need to avoid living together in sin.”

Jesus said: “My people, all of the signs and symbols in the vision are another description of the coming Warning. The stage of life is where you perform your daily actions, both good and bad. The flames represent the souls of life who are each accountable in their life review. The circling glass clock means that the time of the Warning is getting close. Your life review will focus on your unforgiven sins, so your best preparation is to go to frequent Confession at least monthly. The Warning will be an opportunity for even the worst sinner to have a second chance at changing their lifestyle. This will be a spiritual wake-up call also for all the lukewarm souls who could be lost if they do not change their lazy ways. Your judgment will show you where you are headed if you continue on your present path. Returning to your body will give you a second chance to be saved which is more than those who die without this opportunity. Keep focused on Me as your love that you would want to be with. By accepting Me as Master of your life and seeking the forgiveness of your sins, you could receive eternal life in heaven.”

Saturday, December 25, 2010: (Christmas Day)
Jesus said: “My people, I am your Lord and God at any age, even as an infant. You can pray to Me as Santo Nino, a twelve year old boy, or as a grown adult because I am the same Jesus. I could have come with more glorious power, but I came as an innocent baby, born to a poor family. I chose a humble beginning with very little of My younger life that was recorded in the Scriptures. It was My teaching ministry and My Passion and death that you know the most about because that was My mission on earth to redeem all of you. You all are born as innocent children, and it is what you do with your life that you will be held accountable for. I have given you My life as a model to follow as well as My Blessed Mother. We were without sin, but you can still strive for perfection in this life. Call on Me to help you every day to follow My laws and share your gifts with everyone.”

Friday, December 24, 2010

 

Friday, December 24, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, I was fortunate to find a place to stay in a cave for the animals. Today, many families travel great distances to be with each other on Christmas Day. You usually have a big meal and then share your gifts around the Christmas tree. Only this year you will be praying a decade of the rosary before opening your gifts. Remember this moment with your pictures as you pray for your family members to save their souls. You have seen in the Scriptures how the shepherds and the Magi traveled a great distance to see the new born King. Even today, you would travel a distance to receive Me at a Mass. In some areas of the South you had to travel hundreds of miles to find a Catholic Church. In the coming tribulation you also will find it difficult to have a priest for a Mass. By the grace of My angels you will have daily Communion, even if you do not have a Mass. Rejoice while you still have your churches for daily Mass, because a time is coming when they will be closed by the evil ones.”

(Vigil Mass) Jesus said: “My people, in this vision you know that I am the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. Yet, with all of My power in the universe, I was able to take on a human nature and I still remained God and Divine at the same time. This Incarnation into a human is a mystery that is hard for man to comprehend. Still, becoming a man was part of My means to redeem all of mankind. Many prophecies were given of My coming, but some people had different expectations of Me coming as a powerful king to free the Jews from the Romans. Many had difficulty in accepting My Gospel of love because it meant changing from a life of greed and pleasure. Even the people of today have the same difficulty because man’s desires and wants have not changed over the years. The real understanding comes when each of you discover that you have a spiritual life in your soul that can only be satisfied with My peace. Follow your spiritual desires to be with Me more than any worldly desires of the body.”

Thursday, December 23, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, there were many events that had to be fulfilled for My plan of salvation to be carried out. One miraculous event was the birth of St. John the Baptist to his parents Elizabeth and Zachariah who were advanced in years, for everything is possible for Me. Zachariah was struck deaf and dumb for not believing St. Gabriel’s message that he would have a son. At the birth of St. John, Zachariah gave a beautiful canticle that is read in the morning for the Liturgy of the Hours. St. John was prepared as My messenger in the desert who would herald My coming and prepare the people with repentance. As you are about to celebrate another Christmas, you can see how all the pieces of salvation history were orchestrated and brought together so all souls could be redeemed by My sacrifice.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, as you are about to celebrate Christmas, there is much preparation at each church to give honor to My birth. This year your church’s Nativity scene is especially beautiful with your different statues. Many of your people will be grateful for these beautiful decorations. Christmas is a solemn feast day in My Church, and it is one of the major highlights in your Church Year. As you celebrate in giving your gifts to each other, remember to say your decade of the rosary before you open your gifts.”

Jesus said: “My people, even as you celebrate My feast of Christmas, remember in your prayers to pray especially for those families who have lost their homes to various natural disasters or terrorist actions. Some terrorists plan their attacks around Christian holy days as a defiance against any belief in My coming as the Son of Man. They believe that I was only a prophet, and not God incarnate as a man. My coming to earth as a man had an exact reason, to bring salvation to all of mankind by My death on the cross. Defend My Incarnation as a man to witness to the world that God truly has visited His people.”

Jesus said: “My people, the angels sang My song of glory for the shepherds, and they led the shepherds to My crib at Bethlehem. Rejoice in their singing: ‘Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among men of good will.’ The angels brought their light to My crib. Wherever you see Me, as in My Blessed Sacrament, My angels are around Me singing My songs of praise as they do in heaven. If you were to see Me in heaven, you could hear all the choirs of angels singing My constant praises.”

Jesus said: “My people, in My day there were not many ways to draw attention to a great event as My birth. So I used natural means to display notice for a supernatural event when I was born as a man into your world in the history of time. You have recorded history of My time on earth as you measure your years by before and after My birth. There are some atheists that want to do away with the meanings of B.C. and A.D. See that I watch over My people, and I love you so much that I died for each one of you.”

Jesus said: “My people, there is a great richness in the promise of a Redeemer who would come to My Jewish people. This vision of the Wailing Wall represents the remnants of the old Temple. I have built My Church on a new rock in My apostles, and on the kingdom that I brought into the world. I have come to save all peoples of all nations, and not just the Jewish people. When St. Paul reached out to the Gentiles, you could see the true universality of My Word that I have brought to all of mankind, even if some do not believe in Me.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing some areas expanding My churches, but there are more churches being closed. Where the faith is strong, there are plenty of priestly vocations and whole families are coming every Sunday to Mass. Where the faith is weak, your attendance at Mass is falling and there are priest shortages. My religious leaders need to do their job in building up the faithful numbers.”
Jesus said: “My people, if you truly want to come and share your gifts with Me on Christmas, then make an effort to come to Mass on Christmas Day or the vigil so you can be with Me in My Eucharist. My sacramental Presence reaches out to all of you so you can share in the graces of My Eucharist. Christmas is one of My great feast days, so you should make an effort to come out to greet Me and give Me praise and glory in your singing. Pray for all of your family and friends that you could be an inspiration in leading them to Me in heaven. Saving souls should be your most important vocation in life.”

Seven Major Prophetic Signs of the Second Coming

Seven Major Prophetic Signs of the Second Coming

Jack KelleyBy Jack Kelley
GraceThruFaith.com
10th Annual Update January 2011
There are seven major prophetic signs of the Second Coming, and currently all of them are in some stage of fulfillment. As in years past, I’ll list the seven with their primary biblical references and offer commentary from current events.
1. Israel Will Be in the Land … Ezekiel 36:8-12, 37:21
Speaking to the Land God said,

“You, O mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, and I will multiply the number of people upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will increase the number of men and animals upon you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more than before. Then you will know that I am the LORD. I will cause people, my people Israel, to walk upon you. They will possess you, and you will be their inheritance; you will never again deprive them of their children.

And to the people,

This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land.

Although Ezekiel wrote these words while the Israelites were in Babylon, they were not fulfilled in the nation’s return from exile there. Like Isaiah before him (Isaiah 11:11) Ezekiel was speaking of the second and final return. Therefore in 1948, when Israel took its place among the nations of the world again for the first time in nearly 2000 years, students of prophecy recognized the fulfillment of the primary sign that the end of the age was upon us. Jesus said that some from the generation being born when this happened would still be alive when He returned (Matt. 24:34). Both Psalm 90:10 and Isaiah 23:15 hint that an average Biblical life span is 70 years. Since 62 years have passed since Israel became a nation again after being absent for nearly 1900 years, students of prophecy have cause to believe that the end of the age is upon us.
2. Jerusalem Will Be in Jewish Hands… Luke 21:24

They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

The Lord prophesied that the reunification of Jerusalem as a Jewish City would be a sign that foreign (gentile) influence over His land, and indeed the world, was about to end (Luke 21:24). Fulfillment of this prophecy began in 1967, and scholars saw it as another major sign that the End of the Age had begun. The almost world wide effort to take the city apart again is in essence a battle of wills. Nearly every Israeli leader has stood firmly on a pledge to keep Jerusalem united forever as Israel’s capital, but the unbelieving leaders of the world are just as resolutely determined to divide it.
The Lord said that at the End of the Age He will make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling, an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. (Zechariah 12:2-3) This past year much of the attack against Israel has been focused on Jerusalem. American leaders, traditionally some of Israel’s most loyal allies, have publicly called East Jerusalem occupied territory and demanded that no more Jewish homes be built there. They’ve even tried unsuccessfully to halt construction in undisputed neighborhoods. Through out the year the European Union has pushed for an official declaration dividing Jerusalem to make way for a future Palestinian State to have part of the city as its capital. And several Middle Eastern and South American countries are said to be working with the Palestinians to introduce a UN resolution that will unilaterally declare a Palestinian state in the Promised Land, with East Jerusalem as its capital. Behind all this of course is a spiritual battle of massive proportions. While there’s no doubt as to the outcome, the battle continues to be a fierce one.
I’ve come to believe that Jerusalem won’t really be free of Gentile “trampling” until the Lord returns. Daniel’s prophecy that Gentile Dominion would not end until the Lord establishes His kingdom (Daniel 2:36-45), Zechariah’s prophecy of the city being captured and divided just before the Lord’s return (Zech. 14:2), and John’s observations in Rev. 11:1-2 of the gentiles trampling the outer court of the Temple during the Great Tribulation all confirm this. But even so, the fact that Jerusalem is back in Jewish hands is another big sign that the End is coming soon.
3. A Moslem Coalition Armed and Led By Russia Will Attack the Holy Land… Ezek. 38:2-6

“Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army – your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops – the many nations with you.”

Numerous historical references make it plain that Magog stands for modern Russia, and the other countries named here form a coalition based on their common religion, Islam. (Today Russia is 30% Moslem and growing.) Among them are Iran, several North African countries, Eastern European countries along the Danube, and the Turkic nations of Asia Minor. A quick look at a world map will reveal that these areas are home to some of the most radical Islamic groups. (For a detailed explanation of the modern nations to which these Biblical names refer, read “An In Depth Look At The Modern Equivalent To Biblical Names in Ezek.38″)
The Russians are already a major supplier of arms for the Moslem coalition, just as Ezekiel prophesied, and will be drawn into joining in this battle by God Himself. Russia’s barely disguised policy of becoming the major outside force in the Middle East is playing right into the Lord’s hands. Iran and Russia are well into the implementation of a $50 billion deal to provide Iran with nuclear power. The 10 reactors called for in the deal are supposedly for electrical power generation, but most western leaders suspect they’ll be used to build bombs, too. Some experts had claimed that Iran would become a nuclear power this past year, but due to the extensive damage caused by the mysterious Stuxnet computer virus experts now think a bomb is still a couple of years away. Israel has again vowed to prevent that ever happening, but don’t be surprised if the US continues to back away from its similar promise, even though at year end the language coming out of Washington seems to be getting tougher again.
Russia has also formed commercial and military alliances with Turkey and Syria, and has become Turkey’s 2nd largest trading partner after Germany. They’ve sold Damascus a state of the art anti-air defense system along with their latest generation missiles and anti-tank rockets and are building a major military seaport in northern Syria, in preparation for moving components of their Black Sea fleet there. In Lebanon, Russian Military Intelligence has just about taken over the town of Sidon, spying on Israel for Iran and Syria.
The major obstacle to an early fulfillment of this prophecy is the reference to its occurrence at a time when Israel is “a peaceful and unsuspecting people” (Ezekiel 38:11). This certainly is not the case today, but Psalm 83 is a yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecy that appears to involve all of Israel’s next door neighbors in another attempt to wipe the Jewish nation off the map. The psalmist pleads with the Lord to intervene and defeat Israel’s attackers. A victory by Israel would explain why none of them are named in Ezekiel’s list of antagonists, although you’d expect them to be near the top of the list. It would also explain how Israel could be living in a perceived state of safety as Ezekiel 38:11 requires. Two of Israel’s neighbors, Hamas and Hizbollah, are still making frantic preparations for war and insisting there will be one soon. Not surprisingly, these preparations are being bought and paid for by Iran. Throughout 2010 other experts on both sides publicly announced their fears that war was imminent, but at year’s end it hasn’t happened yet.
But two other pre-requisites for Ezekiel’s battle are clearly being met. In past studies I’ve shown that Turkey will be on the Moslem side in Ezekiel’s battle, but for years Turkey has enjoyed a strong relationship with Israel. That all changed in 2010. The Turkish sponsored attempt to break the Gaza blockade last spring strained Israel’s relationship with Turkey to the breaking point. Public support in Turkey for membership in the EU is also declining, another sign that attitudes toward the West are changing. Turkey’s Prime minister Erdogan believes Turkey’s destiny is to rebuild the Ottoman Empire into the new Middle Eastern powerhouse. He’s getting cozy with Iran and Syria to accomplish this. From all outward appearances Turkey has landed solidly in the camp of the Moslem coalition.
Till now Israel really hasn’t had any wealth to speak of, but recent oil and gas discoveries, said to be worth billions of dollars, could create the wealth necessary to make Israel an attractive target for attack. This could fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38:13 that Russia will be looking for plunder. There could be enough natural gas to supply Israel’s needs for 100 years and turn them from a net importer to a net exporter. Russia is already looking for ways to get involved in bringing this gas to market, and according to Ezekiel they’ll go to war in what will turn out to be a failed attempt to do so.
I believe that the removal of the US as Israel’s powerful ally is also necessary to pave the way for Ezekiel’s battle, because I don’t think the Moslem coalition will attack until they’re sure the US won’t retaliate. Any one of several scenarios currently being played out could accomplish this, especially since our national policy toward Israel is already changing. A deepening recession could turn the nation inward again and cause us to lose interest in defending Israel. Further decline of the dollar on world markets could even render us financially unable to do so. The funds would have to be borrowed, and our ability to repay current debt is already being questioned. The threat or actual occurrence of a major terrorist attack could cause us to stand down. And finally, the Rapture of the Church could deprive the US of both the leadership and manpower to respond. Any one of these would mean serious trouble for the US and all of them have a better than average probability of coming to pass in the year ahead. In summary, it’s a whole lot easier to see the US abandoning its commitment to Israel than it was just a short time ago.
When the time is right, having recently taken His church to Heaven, the Lord will use this battle to orchestrate His reconciliation with Israel, and on its heels the anti-Christ will emerge with a peace plan that includes a Jewish Temple. So once this battle takes place, end times prophecy will really go on fast forward.
4. The Ancient Roman Empire Will Re-Emerge as a Political Force… Rev 17:9-10

“This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while.”

This one is a little obscure if you don’t know your history. When John was writing this, about 95AD, there had been five great world powers; Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, and Greece. All were conquered and absorbed. The current power was Rome, which was never really conquered and will re-emerge at the end of the age, according to Daniel 9:26.
Daniel 2:36-45 describes Gentile Dominion from Daniel’s time forward (Egypt and Assyria had already fallen) in the form of a giant statue representing the four remaining Kingdoms. Babylon was the head of gold. Persia was the chest and arms of silver. Greece was the belly and thighs of bronze, followed by the two appearances of Rome, two legs of iron (Biblical Rome) and two feet of iron mixed with clay (the revived Roman Empire). Read it carefully and you’ll find some interesting things in the description of the two feet upon which the statue stands. In the first place iron and clay don’t mix. We can imagine sticky clay serving as glue sticking pieces of iron together, but the language describes a clay that’s made of dust and already baked … hard and brittle like shards of pottery. You can’t make random pieces of iron and pottery adhere.
The two iron legs of the statue describe the two divisions of the Roman Empire of Biblical times, Western and Eastern. Today the territory of the Western division is occupied by Europe, while the Eastern territory holds the Islamic countries of the Middle East. They’re the two feet of iron mixed with clay, and both have their problems.
As of this writing the Western division is said to be on the ropes due to economic problems. Some predict these problems will prompt a major re-configuration of the Western leg in 2011 as the weak economies are cast adrift to avoid bringing down the strong ones. Experts also wonder if the combined defeats spoken of in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 will render the Eastern leg incapable of being part of the World Empire of the End Times. But Daniel had both the statue’s feet in view in chapter 2 so both divisions of the Roman Empire have to be present at the End of the Age. The coming year may bring some eye-popping changes to our understanding of what this End Times Empire will look like.
5. The World Will Embrace a Single Religion… Rev 13:8

All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.

Make no mistake about it. Islam is the major religious force in the world today and the goal is nothing less than world domination, by any means necessary. It’s the world’s fastest growing religion and is second only to Christianity in number of adherents. Already nearly one out of every four inhabitants of the world is Moslem, and like most Christians and Jews they don’t really know what they believe or why. I’m no prophet, but as I look into the future, it’s much easier for me to see Islam riding its current wave of momentum to fill the void left by the departure of the Church than it is to imagine some watered down mix of apostate Christianity and New Age Mysticism doing so.
Much has been written recently about al Mahdi, a figure out of Moslem prophecies who bears a striking resemblance to Christian prophecies of the anti-Christ. For example, both show a leader coming on the scene during a time of great turmoil on Earth. Both depict him as man of peace who will have a seven year reign, head up a one world religion and one world government, and claim supernatural origins. Both prophecies culminate in a battle between good and evil that brings about Earth’s final judgment. It’s as if they’re pointing to the same person. The difference is that in Islam he’s a good guy, while the Bible calls him evil.
Take this charismatic political and religious leader with his supernatural power, add the widely held but incorrect belief that God and Allah are the same, and that Islam is a religion of peace, and then subtract the spirit of discernment that will disappear with the Church and you can see how he could be the straw that a world on the brink of disaster grasps for survival.
6. The World Will Accept a Single Government… Rev 13:3

The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.

The last US presidential election showed how quickly a fearful and disillusioned people will get behind someone who promises to change things. When you look at the shape of the world it doesn’t take much to imagine circumstances getting to a point where the whole world will agree to follow a leader who will promise to bring order out of chaos. Whether it’s Global Warming (now called Climate Change), the decline of the US dollar, or war in the Middle East, the one solution everyone is talking about is some form of one world government. With the things that already threaten world stability getting worse by the day, how much more frantic will people be after millions of their neighbors suddenly disappear without warning or explanation, and there’s been a nuclear exchange that brings destruction from Europe through the Middle East and into Russia? All it will take is a leader who can persuade people he can fix things to bring this prophecy to fulfillment. By many accounts, this leader is standing in the wings awaiting his cue.
7. Babylon Will Re-Emerge As A Prominent City In World Affairs… Rev 18:2-3

With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

You may not know it, but Babylon is being made ready to accept its destiny as a city of power in the end times. It’s just a ceremonial city right now, but 20 years ago nobody even knew it existed at all. One of the shocks of Gulf War 1 was the discovery of Babylon standing there on the banks of the Euphrates again. Today there’s a concerted effort underway to complete what Saddam Hussein began and return Babylon to world prominence. The government of Iraq has decided that making Babylon an international tourist destination is in the country’s best interest, and the US is sponsoring a feasibility study to see how this can be accomplished.
Because of Babylon’s current lack of importance in the world, some students of prophecy search for an allegorical fulfillment of its destruction described in Rev. 18, and of course many see the USA or some city therein as a logical candidate. But remember, even though in Revelation 17:9 John describes “mystery Babylon” as seated on seven hills, a prophecy in Zechariah 5:5-11 shows it being moved “to the plains of Shinar” a reference to ancient Mesopotamia called Iraq today. We can’t switch from literal to allegorical interpretations of Scripture without clear direction, and where Babylon is concerned no such direction exists. In fact the opposite is true. Almost from the beginning, the Bible has been a tale of two cities. Jerusalem is the city of God while Babylon has always been the city of man. Both disappeared from the world stage for many centuries, but when Jerusalem came back it was to its original location. The Bible says the same will be true of Babylon.
Birth Pains … Matt. 24:6-8

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

When you include places like Korea where a truce is in place but the war isn’t over, there are currently 70 active wars in the world, with 200 other “hot spots” smoldering.
Earthquakes are continuing to run well above normal with major quakes (7.0-7.9 on the richter scale) achieving 140% of their 15 year USGS average during 2010.
But many experts say the big story in the birth pangs area for 2011 could be famine. According to the World Bank, in the last 6 months world wheat and corn prices have risen 57%, rice and sugar are up 45% and 55% respectively and soybeans are at their highest price in 16 months. This is mostly due to shortages caused by crop failures in various places. When prices go up due to shortages the limited supplies go to markets that can pay. Those who can’t are left out. When only luxuries are involved nobody cares, but when it’s basic things like flour and rice, people begin dying. Already 1 out of every 6 people in the world go to bed hungry every night. Experts have said it would only take one or two years of poor crop production to bring a serious famine to the world. Many are concluding that 2010 was a bad year and 2011 won’t be any different.
Climatologists say weather is becoming a more unpredictable factor with average temperatures on a steady decline that could last 30 months or more. This has already begun to effect crop production in northern climates with shorter growing seasons. Further compounding the problem, energy prices are once more on the rise with oil expected to top $100 per barrel again before spring (It’s at $91 now). Energy cost is a factor in everything we buy, including food. All things considered 2011 could well become known as the year the famines began.
The Lord said these birth pangs would be the early warning signs of the approaching End of the Age, so I have included some examples to confirm my belief that we’re very close to our last days on Earth. The consensus from the professionals seems to be that things aren’t going to get better any time soon and could likely get much worse by the end of 2011. That may be true for the world, but we’re told to walk by faith not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7) because our citizenship is in Heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ (Phil. 3:20). When we see these things begin to take place we’re to stand up and lift up our heads because our redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28). These promises have never been more true than they will be in 2011.

Who is Jesus Christ?

 

In a hot debate with a group of hostile religious leaders Jesus said, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day; and he saw it, and was glad” (John 8:56).
In their rush to react in emotional excitement they weren’t paying attention to what Jesus said so they concluded, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” (v. 57).
In response to their question Jesus made one of the most profound statements about His deity. “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM” (v. 58).
Who is this man? Is He God? Who is this “I AM”? Who is Jesus Christ?
Make no mistake Jesus was claiming to have existed before the Jewish patriarch Abraham was born. He was claiming an eternal pre-existence—“Before Abraham was born, I am.”
When Jesus used the name “I AM” He was actually using the divine name by which the God of Israel had revealed Himself to Moses at the burning bush (Exodus 3:13-14). God revealed Himself to Moses as “I am who I am.” “I AM” is the name for God that Jesus takes to Himself. With this name for deity He claimed to be Yahweh which is the very word for Jehovah or LORD.
The Jews listening to Jesus immediately recognized His claim to be God. The Jewish leaders knew what Jesus was saying. They clearly understood His speech. Because they were so inferiorities, they picked up stones to kill Him for blasphemy.
This was not the only time Jesus directly or indirectly claimed to be God’s equal.

THE MAKING OF A WORSHIPPER

 

Exodus 14 describes an incredible moment in Israel’s history. The Israelites had just left Egypt under God’s supernatural direction. Now they were being hotly pursued by Pharaoh’s army. The Israelites had been led into a valley surrounded on both sides by steep mountains, and ahead of them was a forbidding sea. They didn’t know it yet, but these people were about to experience the darkest, stormiest night of their souls. They faced an agonizing night of panic and despair that would test them to their very limits.

I believe this passage has everything to do with how God makes his people into worshippers. Indeed, no other chapter in the Bible demonstrates this more strongly. You see, worshippers are not made during revivals, in the good, sunny times, or periods of victory and health. Worshippers of God are made during dark stormy nights. And how we respond to our storms determines just what kind of worshippers we are.

Hebrews 11 gives us this image of Jacob in his old age: “By faith Jacob, when he was a-dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff” (Hebrews 11:21). Why is Jacob portrayed this way in his dying days?

Jacob knew his life was about to end. That’s why we see him giving his blessing to his grandchildren. So, what does Jacob do as he looks back on the events of his life? He is moved to worship. Not a word is spoken by this man. Yet, as he leaned on his staff, marveling at the life God had given him, “[he] worshipped.”

Jacob worshipped God in that moment because his soul was at rest. He had proven God faithful beyond any shadow of a doubt. And now the patriarch concluded, “It never mattered what battle I went through. God proved himself faithful to me. He has always been faithful. O Lord, almighty God, I worship you!”
