Breaking satans provision – WarFare Prayer – Coming out of the worldly System

Warfare Prayer - Breaking satans provision

Breaking satans provision & Coming Out of the Worldly System!

According to Haggai

Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

Father, we break and cancel all agreements, contracts confessions concerning the beast, satan, man, and the systems provision…I know i cant get out of this by my own strength but by your strength only.  Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord! Lord I break the curse of the bag of holes according to Haggai 1:6…

Lord I repent for not building on your provision and repent for not building on your foundation. Put my feet on solid ground. Help me to sow into the good ground. I repent for looking after my own house and not looking after your house. Help me to die to self. Lord I repent for self deception. I repent for building a false foundation on self and not according to Christ.

Lord I ask you to bless my hands and I break every curse of poverty, lack, leech, canker worm,  caterpillar, locust,  slavery, bondage, and Ahab. I cover all these curses with the blood of Jesus! I Command all demons behind the curses to go from myself and my bloodline and never return, in the name of Jesus.

Lord, bless me to be able to give into your kingdom with a correct heart. I come out of  trusting the worlds economy, social welfare & social security in Jesus name. I renounce fear of lack, trusting in mammon, and the dependency on the worlds provision. I repent for fear and not trusting in you Father.  Lord, I repent for double-mindedness, evil heart of unbelief, false comfort, false security, the waster spirit, wormwood, sloth, sluggard, and Nomad.

The way out is the way through. press into the Lord!

We break the curse of vagabond and the curse of Cain!

Lord we break all pacts, treaties and covenants with the Gibeonites and Hivites like Joshua did… we refuse to be tricked any longer.

THANK YOU JESUS!!!! All glory goes to you Father God! We love you and proclaim not my will but yours Father!

Breaking End Time News – Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

IRAN has been “the world’s central banker for terrorism since 1979”, Donald Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton has said during a fiery press conference today.

Breaking End Time News – Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

He also indicated the US would be highly reluctant to offer any waivers to countries seeking to buy oil from the Islamic Republic.

And the hawkish appointee of current US President Donald Trump also took a swipe at the administration of his boss’s predecessor with a clear implication that had been soft of terror.

Mr Bolton has kept up a steady stream of rhetoric in the direction of Tehran in recent days, yesterday describing it as a “rogue regime” as the US officially terminated the bilateral Treaty of Amity signed with Iran in 1955.

Prior to this, he called for an investigation into Israeli claims of a “secret atomic warehouse” within the Islamic republic, and warned President Hassan Rouhani there would be “hell to pay” if they harmed the US or its citizens.

Tensions ratcheted up still further after Donald Trump’s election as President in 2016, especially after his decision to pull the US out of the JPCOA accord with the aimed at preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, an agreement Mr Trump claimed Iran was in breach of.

Mr Bolton was a strong advocate of withdrawing from the deal.

Ever since then, Washington and Tehran have regularly lambasted each other, with Mr Trump warning Mr Rouhani of “consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered” if he ever threatening the US.

This was an apparent reference to a speech days earlier in which Mr Rouhani said a war between the two nations would be “the mother of all conflicts”.

For his part, Mr Rouhani has been angered not just by the US’s decision to pulling out of the agreement, which will result in tough economic sanctions against Iran, but also comments by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo which were widely interpreted as seeking to encourage anti-Government demonstrations within his country.

End Time Israel News – Golden Vessel Used in Jewish Ceremony for First Time Since Second Temple

Golden Vessel Used in Jewish Ceremony for First Time Since Second Temple - IPRYAPRAYER - End TIme News

On Thursday, a bit of the former glory of the temple was witnessed by 300 people who took part in the full-dress reenactment of the Sukkot water-libation ceremony. The group set out from the Dung Gate in the old city of Jerusalem in the early evening, making its way down the steep steps leading to the Shiloah Spring. Led by six Kohanim (Jewish men descended from Aaron the priest) and accompanied by music, the crowd sang and danced as they passed from the archaeological remains of the ancient city of David,

through an Arab village, to the spring which was used in temple times. The Kohanim wore vestments that were made according to biblical standards for use in the temple, and several played long silver trumpets that had been prepared by the Temple Institute for use in the third temple. One Kohen carried a silver vessel used for the libation, while the high priest carried a spectacular gold vessel prepared this year for this year’s service. “A vessel like this has not been seen since the temples stood,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin and an organizer of the event, told Breaking Israel News.

The procession then climbed to a plaza overlooking the valley, where a model altar had been constructed of wood. The ceremony, carried out precisely as it was performed in the temple, took place closer to the Temple Mount than any other temple reenactment thus far. An equal amount of water and wine were poured into two separate containers. The two liquids then spilled out onto the altar through openings in the containers.

The reenactment altar was decorated with large branches from a willow tree to replicate how the altar in the temple was decorated for the holiday.

This was followed by the priestly blessing.

In temple times, a libation of water was made together with the pouring out of wine at the morning service on the last six days of the week-long Sukkot holiday.

Though not explicitly mandated in the Torah, the water libation is part of the oral tradition passed down from Moses. Sukkot is a joyous holiday, and the water libation was the focal point of this joy. In the temple, the ceremony would take 15 hours with accompanying celebrations lasting all night until the temple service began again the next morning.

“The basis of Sukkot is universal, bringing bounty to all 70 nations, as symbolized by the 70 bulls brought as sacrifices throughout the festival,” Rabbi Weiss said. “The world is facing many universal threats and coming together is vital. The temple was a way in which the nations could come together in holiness, each nation bringing their aspect of holiness and connection with Hashem in order to avert these universal threats.”

“This must necessarily be done from a biblical basis and from Jerusalem,” Rabbi Weiss said, citing a verse from the Prophets.

And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. (Isa. 2:3, The Israel Bible).

The United Nations imitated this by establishing Israel as one of their first acts but they have strayed since then, the most egregious act being their attacks on Jerusalem which were attempts to delay the building of the Third Temple. President Trump clearly recognizes this and has called on the UN to either fix themselves or to disband.”

At the ceremony, Rabbi Azriel Ariel announced the birth of the red heifer.

“This is the beginning of a long process that will, God willing, allow us to purify all of Israel, Rabbi Ariel said. “This is not us forcing God’s hand. We are simply performing mitzvoth (Torah commandments) as given to us in the Torah.”

He explained that the actual preparation of the ashes will be in two years. Until that time, it is considered an egla (calf) by Jewish law. At the age of 2, it becomes classified as a para (heifer) and can be sacrificed and burned, its ashes used in the purification ritual.

In the meantime, the rabbis will be studying the relevant laws, and the Kohanim will be preparing for the ritual.

End Time Prophecy News – Rabbi warns that Yellowstone Supervolcano will be instrumental in the Last Days

Yellowstone-volcano-eruption-Bible-prophecy-end-of-the-world-1028552

Yellowstone volcano eruption: What does the Bible say about Yellowstone erupting?

YELLOWSTONE volcano erupting is a terrifying prospect – and one a biblical expert bizarrely believes was foretold in a Bible prophecy about the end of the world.

Bizarre claims have been made to suggest a cataclysmic Yellowstone volcano eruption will “purify” the planet in the end days.

The Wyoming supervolcano, one of the biggest in the world, will supposedly erupt together with tremendous earthquakes.

A biblical prophet in Israel believes two-thirds of the planet will drown in fire when the world comes to an end.

Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri, a Jerusalem-based Kabbalist, claimed the apocalyptic scenario was foretold in the Old Testament.

According to the rabbi, the world’s fiery demise was prophesied in the Book of Zachariah and the Book of Psalms.

He told Breaking Israel News the end days are described in Psalms 104:32.

The passage reads: “Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.”

The rabbi said: “This describes what will happen in the End of Days before the final redemption.

“There will be an earthquake in Israel, but it will be beneficial, opening up the Temple Mount, bringing forth living waters, purifying the city to receive the Messiah.”

Rabbi Batzri also interpreted Yellowstone volcano’s eruption from a passage in Zachariah 13:9.

Zachariah 13:9 reads: “And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tied; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God’.”

The Rabbi said the entire planet will be fraught with powerful earthquakes and volcano eruptions when the end days arrive.

He said the natural disasters will “purify” the world by fire “like a crucible”.

This describes what will happen in the End of Days before the final redemption

Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri

The United States Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors seismic and volcanic activity in Yellowstone National Park, fears Yellowstone erupting could have an effect on a global scale.

These would include disrupted global climate and heavy ash fallout throughout the US.

The USGS said: “The surrounding states of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming would be affected, as well as other places in the United States and the world.

“Such eruptions usually form calderas, broad volcanic depressions created as the ground surface collapses as a result of withdrawal of partially molten rock – magma – below.

“Fortunately, the chances of this sort of eruption at Yellowstone are exceedingly small in the next few thousands of years.”

But the geological agency is not convinced the supervolcano will erupt.

Yellowstone volcano last erupted 640,000 years ago and before this last erupted 1.2 million years and two million years ago.

The probability of Yellowstone erupting again is very slim – about one in 730,000 or just 0.00014 percent.

However, the USGS said there is not enough data on past Yellowstone eruptions to make a “critical judgement” on future volcanic activity.

The USGS said: “There is no evidence that a catastrophic eruption at Yellowstone is imminent, and such events are unlikely to occur in the next few centuries.

“Scientists have also found no indication of an imminent smaller eruption of lava.”

Prophecy News – Tony Blair – We need a second Brexit vote so that we don’t betray Britain’s future

Prophecy News - Tony Blair - We need a second Brexit vote so that we don’t betray Britain’s future

The case for the People’s Vote is now overwhelming. The real betrayal of the country would be refusing it.

There have been two years of frankly fruitless negotiations. We are not agreed with Europe or among ourselves. There are at least three different versions of what the 2016 Brexit mandate means. The Chequers proposal is the least popular version on offer, polling miserably. Yet this is what our Government is threatening to stampede through Parliament or else plunge us into the abyss of a “no deal Brexit .”

Our knowledge of what Brexit entails from the single market and customs union to the Irish border is vastly enlarged. Facts have replaced claims. There has been no recession. But the value of our currency has fallen around 10-15 per cent — a prediction by the international markets of decline in our future wealth. Investment confidence in the UK is negative, the motor industry alone down by 40 per cent. Prices are up. The financial sector is moving jobs. And, no, we will not be seeing a £350 million weekly boost to the NHS. Instead, we are spending billions preparing for Brexit plus paying a £40 billion bill to Europe.

At a minimum, this thing has turned out to be much more complicated than anyone thought in June 2016.

In these circumstances it is natural common sense to ask: in the light of all we know now, is the will of the British people still for Brexit or to remain part of Europe?

In these circumstances it is natural common sense to ask: in the light of all we know now, is the will of the British people still for Brexit or to remain part of Europe?

This solution is the only route to salvation. For the country, if Britain votes again for Brexit, that is the conclusion of the matter. Then we set about making a new future for the country.

By contrast, the Chequers proposal will not end anything. The Brexiteers have made it clear that they will carry on the fight after March 2019 to secure a harder Brexit. My side will use the halfway house of Chequers as a stepping stone back into Europe.

For the Conservative Party, the People’s Vote is a way of ridding themselves of the Europe question which has bedevilled them and on which they’re irredeemably divided. Ironically, separate it out in a new referendum and they’re completely united in fighting today’s Labour Party.

As for Labour, its members are massively in favour of a People’s Vote. The drama around the Salzburg summit has obscured why we are where we are in the Brexit debacle.

At the heart of Brexit is a myth: that we don’t control our own laws. The reality is we do. We have created the NHS and could abolish it. Have tuition fees or scrap them. Put taxes up or down. Spend more or spend less. Shut down all immigration from outside Europe or not. Declare war or make peace. Be tough on crime or be softer.

We had a Labour government in the Seventies when Britain was part of Europe, nationalising, taxing heavily and giving trade unions power. We had a Thatcher government in the Eighties which privatised, hammered unions and cut tax. Today we could have a Conservative Government under Jacob Rees-Mogg or a Labour one under Jeremy Corbyn — and let us agree that their consequences would be very different.

The laws where we have chosen to be constrained are those arising from the single market, a unique trading construct where Europe does not merely abolish tariffs — a conventional trade agreement — but has created a unified regulatory regime, with standards and specifications the same between London and Paris as they are between London and Newcastle. This allows a car manufacturer in Britain to make and assemble parts using plants all over Europe and sell the car in one big market of 450 million people, not one of 65 million.

“If we lose access to the single market and go to a Canada-style free trade agreement we will pay a heavy price”

Because those laws sometimes give rise to disputes and 28 different countries are involved, they’re settled by the European Court.

For more than three decades we have been trading in this market. A huge network of interrelated commerce has grown up around it.

What Britain is seeking to do with Brexit is what no other modern developed nation has ever tried: to de-liberalise its trade by exiting its main trading agreement, the single market, only to re-liberalise it by other means.

The problem with Brexit is Brexit. At its core is this dilemma which the Government has struggled with from the beginning and never resolved, not because they’re incompetent — though some of the negotiating has been that — but because there is no resolution.

If we lose access to the single market and go to a Canada-style free trade agreement we will pay a heavy price. And there will be a hard border in Northern Ireland. Theresa May’s criticism of Boris Johnson’s position is right.

On the other hand, if we don’t pull out of the single market, we will remain bound by its rules, the rationale for Brexit disappears and so the Johnson criticism of May is also right.

The dilemma — “what’s the price vs what’s the point” — is the reason for the breakdown in the negotiations and the absence of consensus in the country. Neither is palatable. The issue is: if that’s the choice, do the people prefer to leave or stay in the EU?

The idea that there will be riots in the street if we ask them is fatuous. The opposition to such a vote is not fear of defying the people but, 30 months the wiser as to what Brexit really means, fear of what they might say.

End Time Prophecy News – The Future of Credit-Card ID Verification

End Time Prophecy News - The Future of Credit-Card ID Verification

As companies change how they verify identities, Europe offers a glimpse of what’s to come

Credit-card companies, banks and vendors are changing how they verify consumers’ identities. Passwords and PINs could become less important. Biometric analysis could become the norm.

The proving ground for the latest in payment technology is Europe, where a new law could encourage greater use of biometrics in a bid to reduce burgeoning payment fraud.

Credit-card companies, banks and vendors are changing how they verify consumers’ identities. Passwords and PINs could become less important. Biometric analysis could become the norm.

The proving ground for the latest in payment technology is Europe, where a new law could encourage greater use of biometrics in a bid to reduce burgeoning payment fraud.

Starting September 2019 in the European Union, a large portion of online payments greater than €30 (currently about $35) will require multifactor authentication. Consumers will need to use two of three things to verify transactions: something they know, like a password; something they have, like a digital device, perhaps a USB token, that identifies them; or something they are: biometric data.

Proofs based on physical characteristics, like fingerprints and faces, are slowly becoming more common. This legislation will likely cause them to surge.

Most consumers using biometrics will likely do so on their phones, many of which already have technology that payment-service providers will use to verify payments—such as Apple Inc.’s Touch ID fingerprint sensors or Face ID facial-recognition software on its iPhones.

Making the payment process frictionless could determine which providers prosper—and which languish.

“We’re helping the industry move toward biometrics as a preferred method,” says Mark Nelsen, senior vice president at Visa Inc. “Customers are getting more comfortable with those solutions, and they’re our preferred method, too.”

Another company hoping to profit from the change is Veridium, a Boston-based biometrics firm.

“We’ve built our company around trying not to change the way you interact with technology too radically,” says Chief Executive James Stickland. “You could plug in Touch ID or Face ID, and that’s great because people are used to it.”

Veridium also provides an authentication technology it calls 4 Fingers TouchlessID that turns smartphones, even older models, into fingerprint scanners.

Ease of use will be paramount to companies in the payment-services and biometrics sector. Vendors and payment-services providers “have to meet requirements on the fraud side and provide a good user experience,” says Frances Zelazny, chief marketing officer at BioCatch, a firm based in Boston. “If they can’t manage their fraud, they’ll go away,” Ms. Zelazny says. “And if they can’t manage their user experience, they’ll go away” because consumers won’t use them.

Behind the scenes, BioCatch and other biometrics companies are working on technology called behavioral biometrics. That technology allows vendors and payment providers to analyze users’ actions and habits to determine whether a transaction should be considered valid. Criteria include whether the transaction is in line with a user’s usual spending pattern, made from a familiar location, or aimed at someone who often receives payments from that user.

“With touch-screen devices, we have a lot of sensors, so we’re able to infer how you swipe, the pressure you put on the screen, how much of your finger you’d leave on the button as you pause before the next one,” says Dr. Neil Costigan, CEO of BehavioSec, a behavioral biometrics firm. “Not so much what you’re doing as how you’re doing it.”

EU guidelines say that payments of €30 to €500 will be exempt from multifactor authentication if they are judged to be sufficiently safe—a determination that behavioral biometrics can help to make. Those technologies can also be used, in certain circumstances, instead of physical biometrics as one of the three proofs required to authenticate a transaction. Smoother, more secure verification processes minimize false alarms when cards are declined, thus reducing abandoned purchases.

Still, biometric solutions face barriers to adoption. Veridium’s Mr. Stickland says: “People’s education is probably the most immature element of utilization. The end user has to be more aware.”

“What concerns us is consumer awareness,” says Visa’s Mr. Nelsen. “We know the consumer has no idea really what this regulation means.” And, he adds, “with hundreds of millions of customers making online payments, and millions of merchants receiving them, older technologies won’t disappear overnight.”

 

Meanwhile, even if customers do take to biometrics, a full rollout of the technology may take some time.

“Part of the challenge has been lethargy. We’ve seen that with chip and PIN in the U.S.,” says Mr. Stickland, referring to the card industry’s ponderous transition away from requiring signature-based payments.

As a result, he says, the move away from plastic cards—and toward mobile-based authentication—is “probably a 10-year journey, not a two-year journey. But I think plastic will be gone altogether in 10 years.”

Passwords, too, will be around for quite some time. Mr. Nelsen says that biometrics systems already in place still use passwords as backups for authentication.

“The only way to get rid of passwords is to have a number of biometrics, so if one fails, you can use another one,” he says. “We’ll start to see more biometrics used to verify identity…. You’ll walk up to the counter, use face recognition to initiate the payment, and that’s it.”

Prophecy News – TRUMP U.N. SPEECH SIGNALS DISRUPTIVE MIDEAST PEACE PLAN TO COME

Prophecy News - TRUMP U.N. SPEECH SIGNALS DISRUPTIVE MIDEAST PEACE PLAN TO COME

Trump’s second speech to the international body only briefly touched on Middle East peace. But what he said was telling.

NEW YORK — Months after the UN General Assembly voted to rebuke US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, on Tuesday he warned the world to brace for more policy changes that would rile the status quo of a conflict that has been frozen for decades.

Trump’s second speech to the international body only briefly touched on Middle East peace. But what he said was telling and reflective of recent comments from members of his peace team who are beginning to preview a plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace that will buck conventional norms long governing the process.

The president was channeling Jared Kushner, his son-in-law leading the peace effort, who in an interview with The New York Times earlier this month, said the administration was intentionally slaughtering sacred cows of the conflict in order to disrupt the discussion.

“There were too many false realities that were created – that people worship – that I think needed to be changed,” Kushner said on the anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords.

Similarly, the president in his speech said the aim of peace “is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts.

“America’s policy of principled realism means we will not be held hostage to old dogmas, discredited ideologies and so-called experts who have been proven wrong over the years, time and time again,” Trump told the gathering.

This is the administration’s main explanation and defense of Trump’s actions on Jerusalem, as well as its decision to defund the UN agency on Palestinian refugees which – according to the peace team – perpetuates a narrative on the status of refugees unhelpful to the pursuit of peace.

The Palestinians see in these statements tea leaves of a plan that will attempt to redefine the terms of their cause, in which they seek sovereignty and independence from Israel in a two-state solution – a term the administration has yet to use. They are already campaigning against the US proposals, which Trump aides note they have not seen.

While Trump’s comments on the peace plan were brief, they at the very least signal policy growth from a year ago, when he addressed the UN General Assembly for the first time. In that speech, he made no mention of the peace process.

Prophecy News – MEGA-PASTOR -TEN COMMANDMENTS NO LONGER APPLICABLE

Prophecy News - MEGA-PASTOR -TEN COMMANDMENTS NO LONGER APPLICABLE

WASHINGTON – A mega-pastor of one of the largest “evangelical” churches in the U.S. is attacking the Old Testament again, this time insisting Jesus rendered the Ten Commandments null and void, issuing one new law “as a replacement for everything.”

Andy Stanley, pastor of the 34,000-member North Point Community Church in suburban Atlanta, who famously advised his flock to “unhitch” from the Old Testament in a sermon last spring, has now penned an article promoting his new book saying laws such as “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” and “Thou shalt not kill” are no longer relevant to Christians living in the New Covenant era.

“You’ve heard the story before: A group of Christians puts up a monument of the Ten Commandments in a public space or on government property,” begins Stanley in his article titled, “Why do Christians want to post the Ten Commandments and not the Sermon on the Mount?” “Someone says it violates the separation of church and state. The Christians say taking it down would violate their freedom of speech. There’s some back and forth in court and both sides say some not-so-great things about the other. Rinse and repeat. But how many times have you seen Christians trying to post the text of the sermon on the mount in a public place? Or the all-encompassing commandment Jesus gave us? ‘A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another — John 13:34 The one commandment! Doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? But if we’re going to create a monument to stand as a testament to our faith, shouldn’t it at least be a monument of something that actually applies to us?”

Stanley goes on to write that the Ten Commandments are from the Old Covenant, which he says “played a significant role in God’s creation of the nation of Israel. It gave them moral guidelines and helped separate this new nation from their neighbors. This was part of the formal agreement (or covenant) God created with his people, but Jesus’ death and resurrection signaled the end of that covenant and all the rules and regulations associated with it. Jesus didn’t issue his new command as an additional commandment to the existing list of commands. He didn’t say, ‘Here’s the 614th law.’ Jesus issued his new commandment as a replacement for everything in the existing list. Including the big ten. Just as his new covenant replaced the old covenant, Jesus’ new commandment replaced all the old commandments.”

The implications of that unequivocal statement have been staggering to other Christians who point out how the words of Jesus and the apostles seem to contradict them flatly and reject such a conclusion.

In Matthew 5:17-19, Jesus says: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

gospel-book-196“Andy Stanley is not preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus and the apostles preached,” says Joseph Farah, author of “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” which documents what he characterizes as “the miraculous, supernatural and perfect continuity of the Good News of redemption throughout both the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.” “Nor is Stanley preaching the Gospel of personal salvation that Jesus and the apostles preached. Instead, he is preaching replacement theology – completely discarding about three-quarters of the Bible and misinterpreting what’s left.”

Farah calls Stanley’s reductionist gospel “Chick-fil-A theology,” an exegesis based on modern American Christian cultural traditions rather than the Bible.

“Participants in the new covenant (that’s Christians) are not required to obey any of the commandments found in the first part of their Bibles,” writes Stanley. “Participants in the new covenant are expected to obey the single command Jesus issued as part of his new covenant: as I have loved you, so you must love one another. The new covenant replaced the old one. The covenant established by Jesus retired the covenant God established with the nation of Israel. This is why most Christians don’t mind a little bacon with their eggs. It’s why you can’t get either at Chick-fil-A on Sunday. (If we were still taking our marching orders from the old covenant, they would be closed on Saturday.)”

Writing a response to Stanley’s new assault on the Hebrew Scriptures, Grayson Gilbert, a graduate student pursuing a masters of divinity degree at Moody Bible Institute, disputes that Jesus only left His disciples with one new law to follow. In fact, Jesus issued hundreds of commandments in the gospel accounts, while affirming the Ten Commandments and the law and the prophets in Matthew 22:37-40: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

“Interestingly enough, Stanley bypasses these verses in his discussions, though I have a feeling he would explain them away and disregard that they are drawn from Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18, which are legal texts in and of themselves given to Israel,” writes Gilbert. “Furthermore, it is plainly stated in the text itself, these are a summation of the law and prophets.”

Stanley blames the Old Testament , not misguided Christianity, for centuries of horrors and abuse of those of different beliefs: “The justifications Christians have used since the fourth century to mistreat people find their roots in old covenant practices and values. Imagine trying to leverage the Sermon on the Mount to start an inquisition, launch a crusade, or incite a pogrom against Jews. But reach back into the old covenant, and there’s plenty to work with.”

“This not only fundamentally misunderstands the nature of God, but essentially claims He has instituted a means of oppression and ill-begotten values in the Old Testament,” writes Grayson. “In other words, the Old Testament is only the foundation of violence, oppression, and so forth, rather than revealing the character and standards of God. Let me be quite frank, Andy is about as close as one can get to saying the God of the Old Testament is different than the New Testament without explicitly stating, ‘The God of the Old Testament is different than the God of the New Testament.’”

It’s not the first time Stanley has been accused of the heresy of Marcion, who took just such a position.

Stanley concludes: “While Jesus was foreshadowed in the old covenant, he did not come to extend it. He came to fulfill it, put a bow on it, and establish something entirely new. The “new” Jesus unleashed made the faith of first-century believers formidable. Their apologetic was irrefutable. Their courage, unquestionable. And the results were remarkable. Dear Christian reader: Why? Why? Why would we even be tempted to reach back beyond the cross to borrow from a covenant that was temporary and inferior to the covenant established for us at Calvary?”

“Jesus is One and the Same as the God of the Old Testament,” says Farah. “He is described in John 1 as the Creator, the maker of all things that were made and in as the One and Only Mediator between God and man in 1 Timothy 2:5. It’s not just that Jesus was foreshadowed in the Old Testament, as Stanley says. He was there at the beginning. He tells the Pharisees: ‘Before Abraham was, I am.’ In other words, Jesus referred to Himself as the great ‘I am,’ one in the same as the Father. There is no separation, no disagreement, between the Father and the Son. They are One.”

Stanley’s new book is called, “Irresistible: Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed for the World.” It is currently ranked at Amazon as one of the most popular books in the “church leadership” category. Farah’s new book, prior to release, as one of the most popular in “Old Testament” category.”

“Maybe they are dueling books for a time such as this,” says Farah. “This is a teaching that must be countered by believers.”

Farah has challenged Stanley’s assertions on the irrelevance and inapplicability of the Old Testament in a series of commentaries:

End Time Headlines – The Russia-Israel crisis

Russia-Israel crisis

End Time Headlines – The Russia-Israel crisis

End Time Headlines – The Russia-Israel crisis The Israeli air attack was indeed a sensitive, if necessary, operation, near the Russian air base in the area and on the eve of the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur.

On the night of September 18, in an unfortunate incident in the fog of war, Syrian air defense mistakenly downed a Russian military IL-20 spy plane with 15 servicemen aboard. The Assad regime had launched a barrage of anti-aircraft missiles targeting planes flying over Latakia. Russian media said the plane lost contact with radar near the Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia, and disappeared during “an attack by Israeli F-16s.” Russian media claimed to have “registered the launch of missiles from a French frigate.”

The Russian Minister of Defense, Sergei Shoigo, slammed Israel on claiming that its “irresponsible actions” led to the downing of the Russian military aircraft as Israel only warned Russia one minute before launching the strikes. The Russian Defense Minister spoke on the phone with Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and told him that Moscow holds Israel wholly to blame for the shooting down of the Russian plane in the waters off Syria.

Be the first to know – Join our Facebook page.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, seeking to cool tensions between the two countries, declared after several hours that Israel was not responsible. “It looks like a chain of tragic circumstances, because the Israeli plane didn’t shoot down our jet,” he said. At the same time, he said Russia will respond by “taking additional steps to protect our servicemen and assets in Syria.” “It will be the steps that everyone will notice,” he said without elaboration.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly called Putin to express sorrow over the death of the plane’s crew, blamed the plane’s loss squarely on Syria, and offered to send Israel’s air force chief to Moscow to share information about the incident.

However, as expected after the hints in President Putin’s declaration, Russia decided to close areas near Cyprus to air, land and sea movement from Thursday until next Wednesday “for the sake of military operations.”

The Israeli air attack was indeed a sensitive, if necessary, operation, near the Russian air base in the area and on the eve of the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur.

It will probably provoke more retaliation from the Russian side, most possibly the imposition of no-fly zones for Israeli aircraft in the Damascus and Latakia areas. In the short term, it will muddle the already sensitive practical understandings between the two states.
There is a low probability that Russia will use also economic retaliatory measures against Israel, like it did in the case of a Russian fighter jet downed by the Turkish air force in 2015. Then Russia stopped the flow of Russian tourists to Turkey and the imports of goods from Turkey.

It is of interest to cite a remarkable article in published on September 19 by Pavel Felgenhauer in the daily Novaya Gazeta, which directly puts the blame on the Russian side, under the title “The Jews are to blame for everything! The Ministry of Defense is trying to disguise the self-defense.”

Google Translate rendered the Russian-language article as follows:

“On the night of September 18, the F-16 bombers of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) bombed targets north of the coastal Syrian city of Latakia, where, according to Israeli intelligence, there were Iranian weapons warehouses with products allegedly destined for the radical Lebanese Shi’ite movement Hezbollah. The main Russian air base Khmeimim is also located on the Mediterranean coast near Latakia, but to the south of the city.

“The air defense forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) of the Assad regime fired back at Israeli raiders and shot down with a long-range missile 5В28 of the S-200V air defense missile system (S-200V) the Russian reconnaissance aircraft IL-20 which came in for landing in Khmeimim, after carrying out reconnaissance of positions of insurgents in the neighboring province of Idlib. Russia accused Israel.”

“After the start of the Russian operation in Syria in 2015, a purposeful program was launched for the revival of the SAA, including its air force and air defense. Russian specialists restored equipment, local teachers were taught and retrained, gratuitous deliveries of components, spare parts and equipment from the presence in domestic arsenals were flown from the Russian Federation via the so-called “Syrian Express”. The SAA’s air force and air defense were saturated with Russian experts and advisers. For the duration of the operation in Syria, the ground and air echelons of the VKS and CAA operated together. They are practically integrated under the supremacy of the Russian military. Therefore, in Moscow, they found out almost immediately that the IL-20 was shot down by Syrian “friendly fire” and not by the Americans, the French, the IDF, or somebody else.

“The situation was extremely unpleasant: the Russian military adviser at the Syrian command post for some reason approved the launch of a long-range missile S-200 missile near our base Khmeimim, which has an official range of 250 km. and a real range of over 300 km. The command post of the connection in Khmeimim was also obliged to control the surrounding airspace. The CP knew about the scheduled flight of IL-20 and had to prohibit the launch of the S-200. But it seems that the Russian military has completely lost control of airspace and control of the air defense system in the area of its main base of the UHF Khmeimim, and as a result, in fact, they shot down their own IL-20.

“It was necessary to somehow explain such a catastrophe to President Vladimir Putin, and because it was the raid of the IDF that launched the “chain of circumstances” that led to the tragedy of the IL-20, the military leadership decided to bring everything to the Jews. It’s better than being responsible for your own sloppiness.”

This reminds of me a déjà vu situation of Russian military intervention in Syria, in the 1970s, which I analyzed in my May 2018 article “How Serious the Russian Threat to Israel in Syria? A Historical Perspective.” I argued there that, in historic perspective, the Soviet Union, and later Russia, have not been successful in providing the necessary strategic umbrella to their allied radical Arab regimes during their wars against Israel and the Russian weapons systems have suffered disgraceful defeats at the hands of the Israeli military.

A few months before the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War, Syrian teams were dispatched to the USSR to train in the use of surface-to-air SA-6 missiles to form the new air defense divisions. A CIA report on Syria stated that during the war in 1973, Soviet advisers supervised the operation of Syrian ground-to-air forces and were present at various headquarters. According to the testimony of an adviser to one of the bombardment squadrons (MiG MF 21) stationed at the Syrian air base in Damir, the consultants helped planning the first air strike.

However, it seems that the Syrian command did not like the Soviet intervention on the front and the advice given by the Russians.

According to Soviet sources, the Syrian command were not ready to listen to the advisers since they wanted to conduct the war according to their understanding and not from what they learned from them. The Soviet chief of staff, Gen. Victor Kulikov, was asked why the Soviet advisers do not correct the Syrians’ mistakes in the conduct of the war. “They do not listen to us… They pretend to be their own strategists,” he replied.

It is this author’s hope that the Israeli leaders will stand firm to the Russian challenge, as long as Russia does not act more firmly against the Iranian attempts to implant itself and its proxies on Syrian soil and build a platform for future, if not immediate, attacks against the Jewish State.

End Times Headlines – Rouhani -Iran will beat Trump, wont abandon missiles

End Times Headlines - Rouhani -Iran will beat Trump, wont abandon missiles

“The same will happen to Trump. America will suffer the same fate as Saddam Hussein.”

DUBAI – US President Donald Trump will fail in his confrontation with Iran, just like Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday, referring to the war between the two Middle Eastern powers and vowing that Tehran will not abandon its missiles.

Tensions have ramped up between Iran and the United States after Trump withdrew from a landmark multilateral nuclear deal in May and reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic last month.

As Rouhani spoke, Iran began displaying its naval power in the Gulf during annual parades in the capital Tehran and the port of Bandar Abbas on the Gulf marking the start of the country’s 1980-88 war with Iraq.

Iran has suggested in recent weeks that it could take military action in the Gulf to block other countries’ oil exports in retaliation for US sanctions intended to halt its sales of crude.

Washington maintains a fleet in the Gulf that protects oil shipping routes.

“The same will happen to Trump. America will suffer the same fate as Saddam Hussein,” Rouhani said in a speech carried live by state television.

“Iran will not abandon its defensive weapons … including its missiles that make America so angry,” Rouhani said.

In the latest American warning on Iran’s missile program, on Friday the US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused Iran of transferring ballistic missile technology to its proxies in Iraq.

“If there is one country that is the source of conflict and instability in the Middle East – one country that merits a quarterly debate in the Security Council – that country is not Israel. It’s Iran,” Haley said.

State media said about 600 vessels took part in the Gulf naval drill on Saturday, a day after Iran held aerial exercises in the waterway, vowing that a “pounding reply” awaited the country’s enemies.

End Time Headlines – Dozens killed in Iran terror attack during military parade

Dozens killed in Iran terror attack during military parade

A senior spokesman for Iran’s armed forces blamed Israel and the United States for an attack that killed 24 people, including military personnel and a four-year-old child, and wounded more than 60 when gunmen opened fire on a military parade in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz Saturday.

“These terrorists are not affiliated with Daesh [the Islamic State], nor with other groups fighting [Iran’s] Islamic system,” Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). “These individuals were trained and equipped by two extremist Persian Gulf states… they are linked to the United States and the Mossad.”

At least five members of the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps and two regular army soldiers were among those injured, according to the BBC’s Persian-language service.

All four of the attackers died, according to Shekarchi. Three were killed by security personnel at the scene, and the fourth died from his wounds after being taken to a local hospital.

Eyewitnesses reported that the attackers were wearing military dress and that the shooting lasted for several minutes, according to the Iranian media. Participants and spectators of the par

‎A video distributed to Iranian media showed soldiers crawling on the ground as gunfire blazed in their direction. One soldier picked up a gun and got to his feet as women and children fled for their lives.

Ali Hosein Hoseinzadeh, deputy governor in Khuzestan province, was quoted as saying the death toll was expected to rise. One of those killed was a journalist.

A local Arab group claimed responsibility for the attack. Yaghub Hur Totsari, spokesman for one of the two groups that identify themselves as the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, said the Ahvaz National Resistance, an umbrella organization of all armed movements, claimed responsibility for the attack, but did not specify which group carried out the operation.

“This action was part of our legitimate resistance and no civilians were targeted in the attack,” said a statement released by the group, which describes itself as devoted to protecting the rights of Khuzestan province’s ethnic Arab minority, according to the BBC.

The Islamic State also claimed responsibility for the attack, according to a statement released by the group’s Amaq news agency, but did not provide any evidence of its involvement.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held “regional terror sponsors and their US masters” responsible in a statement on Twitter.

“Terrorists recruited, trained, armed and paid by a foreign regime have attacked Ahvaz. Children and journos among casualties,” Zarif wrote. “Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their US masters accountable for such attacks. Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of Iranian lives.”

An unnamed spokesman for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps likewise claimed that the attackers had the backing of Iran’s regional rival Saudi Arabia.

The spokesman also said that the attackers directed their fire at civilians in the crowd as well as members of the armed forces participating in the parade, Iranian media reported.

In response, Iran has is increasing security at the Shalamcheh border crossing with Iraq in Khuzestan province, according to the BBC.

Yahya Rahim Safavi, a senior Revolutionary Guards official, vowed retaliation for the attack. “Enemies should not imagine that they can gain dignity with this sinister move. The Iranian people and the armed forces will respond to this,” he said, according to IRNA

Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, RIA news quoted the Kremlin as saying.

This is not the only recent terrorist incident on Iranian soil. Last June, Islamic State suicide bombers and gunmen attacked Iran’s parliament and the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, killing 18. Recent years have also seen attacks by armed militias affiliated with Kurdish and Balochi separatist movements.

Kurdish militants killed 10 Revolutionary Guards in an attack on an IRGC post on the Iraqi border in July, Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency reported, the latest bloodshed in an area where armed Kurdish opposition groups are active.

The parade in Ahvaz, and others held around the country over the weekend, marked the 37th anniversary of the beginning of the Iran-Iraq War, the longest and bloodiest conflict in Iran’s modern history.

End Time Headlines – Egypt releases 1978 Camp David Accords calling for Palestinian autonomy JPOST

End Time Headlines - Egypt releases 1978 Camp David Accords calling for Palestinian autonomy

Some analysts believe that the document was published now, to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Accords, as a poke in the eye of United States President Donald Trump.

Egypt on Thursday published previously classified documents from its 1978 peace negotiations with Israel that called for full Palestinian autonomy in the West Bank and Gaza Strip within five years. The talks resulted in the Camp David Accords, comprising one deal pertaining to the Palestinian issue and a second that formed the foundation of the comprehensive Israel-Egypt treaty forged a year later. The Accords were signed by then-Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin as well as former Egyptian and American presidents Anwar Sadat and Jimmy Carter.

The document regarding the Palestinians, titled “A Framework for Peace in the Middle East,” envisioned a five-year transitional period beginning with the establishment of an elected Palestinian body to administer the territories captured by Israel in the 1967 war. The Israeli military government would thereafter cease to operate in these self-ruled regions, although the terms of the pact provided for the Israel Defense Forces to remain in certain areas for an undefined period of time.

After the interim period, final-status negotiations were to be held to hash out the details of an end-of-claims agreement. Notably, the initial framework did not include mention of the status of Jerusalem or Palestinian refugees.

Some analysts believe that the document was published now, to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Accords, as a poke in the eye of United States President Donald Trump, whose administration was boycotted by the Palestinian Authority following Washington’s recognition in December of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. High-ranking Palestinian officials, including PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, repeatedly have leveled fierce criticism against the White House, which they accuse of being biased in favor of Israel and of attempting to “liquidate” the Palestinian cause through a yet-unveiled peace proposal.

In response, President Trump has cut off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the PA and to programs in the West Bank and Gaza, including funds earmarked for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which tends to Palestinian refugees.

By contrast, others believe Cairo’s move was prompted by a desire to remind the Palestinians of what is at stake should Abbas continue to reject out-of-hand President Trump’s eighteen-months-in-the-making so-called “deal of the century.” In fact, one Palestinian official who spoke to The Media Line on condition of anonymity contended that Egyptian President Abdel al-Fattah al-Sisi was in the US’s corner, especially since Washington earlier this month released $1.2 billion in military aid to Egypt previously suspended over human rights concerns.

Abbas has in recent months clashed with Cairo, which is mediating a process aimed at ending the decade-long feud between the PA-governed West Bank and Hamas-ruled Gaza.

End Time Headlines – China, Russia warn US of consequences over sanctions

End Time Headlines - China, Russia warn US of consequences over sanctions

MOSCOW (AFP) –

Moscow and Beijing lashed out Friday at Washington’s new anti-Russian sanctions that also target China for the first time, warning the United States could face consequences.

The United States is “playing with fire”, Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said, while Beijing voiced “strong indignation” over the move.

United in their resentment of America’s global influence, China and Russia have sought in recent years to tighten up their ties and this month conducted week-long joint military drills, Moscow’s largest ever war games.

On Thursday, China — which is also locked in a trade war with Washington — got caught up in the sanctions war against Russia as the United States announced a new raft of measures that would punish third countries for dealing with Moscow.

Stepping up pressure on Moscow over its “malign activities,” the US State Department said it was placing financial sanctions on the Equipment Development Department of the Chinese Ministry of Defence, and its top administrator, for its recent purchase of Russian Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets and S-400 surface-to-air missile systems.

Beijing on Friday urged the United States to withdraw sanctions or “bear the consequences”.

“The US actions have seriously violated the basic principles of international relations and seriously damaged the relations between the two countries and the two militaries,” said foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, adding Beijing had lodged an official protest with the United States.

“We strongly urge the US to immediately correct their mistake and withdraw their so-called sanctions, otherwise the US will have to bear the consequences.”

US officials said it was the first time a third country has been punished under the CAATSA sanctions legislation for dealing with Russia, signalling Donald Trump’s administration will risk relations with other countries in its campaign against Moscow.

– ‘Undermining stability’ –

Moscow said Washington was rocking global stability and said sarcastically that placing sanctions on Russia has become Washington’s favourite “pastime.”

“It would be good for them to remember there is such a concept as global stability which they are thoughtlessly undermining by whipping up tensions in Russian-American ties,” said Ryabkov.

“Playing with fire is silly, it can become dangerous,” he said in a statement.

The State Department also announced it was placing 33 Russian intelligence and military-linked actors on its sanctions blacklist.

All of them — defence related firms, officers of the GRU military intelligence agency, and people associated with the Saint Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency disinformation group — have been on previous US sanctions lists.

Twenty eight of them have already been indicted by Robert Mueller, who is investigating election meddling by Russia.

US officials said that the US could consider similar action against other countries taking delivery of Russian fighter jets and missiles.

Turkey is in talks to buy S-400 missile systems from Russia.

Ryabkov reiterated that none of the rounds of sanctions had managed to force Russia to change its course so far.

“It appears that it has become a sort of national pastime there,” he added, noting the latest round of anti-Russian measures was the 60th since 2011.

For all of Russia’s seemingly upbeat rhetoric the new measures can hurt the country’s struggling economy.

Arms exports are an important source of revenue for the country and last year Russia sold more than $14 billion worth of arms overseas.

– Sanctions target only Russia? –

A senior US administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, insisted the ultimate target was Russia.

“CAATSA sanctions in this context are not intended to undermine the defence capabilities of any particular country,” the official said.

CAATSA, or the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, was passed in 2017 as a tool that gives Washington more ways to target Russia, Iran and North Korea with economic and political sanctions.

China’s EDD and its director Li Shangfu became targets after taking delivery over the past year of the jets and missiles from Rosoboronexport, Russia’s main arms exporter already on the US blacklist for its support of Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

The US official said Washington had spent “an enormous amount of time” seeking to discourage prospective buyers of Russian arms.

The new sanctions came as the United States and China are in the heat of a trade war.

The two countries will launch new tariffs on Monday, with Washington targeting $200 billion in Chinese exports and Beijing hitting $60 billion worth of American products.

End Time Headlines – OIL PRICE CRISIS – Trump DEMANDS Middle East reduce oil prices – We keep you safe

OIL PRICE CRISIS Trump DEMANDS Middle East reduce oil prices - We keep you safe

OIL PRICE CRISIS: Trump DEMANDS Middle East reduce oil prices – We keep you safe

US President Donald Trump linked American support for Middle Eastern countries to oil prices on Thursday as he again urged OPEC to lower prices.

He wrote on Twitter: ”We protect the countries of the Middle East, they would not be safe for very long without us.
“And yet they continue to push for higher and higher oil prices! We will remember.
“The OPEC monopoly must get prices down now!”
The Republican president has lashed out at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries over the past several months.
Rising US gasoline prices could create a political headache for Mr Trump before November congressional elections by offsetting Republican claims that his tax cuts and rollbacks of federal regulations have helped boost the US economy.

Mr Trump has called on Saudi Arabia, OPEC’s largest producer, to raise output, saying that it should help the US lower fuel prices since Washington is aiding Riyadh in its struggle against Iran.

OPEC and its allies are unlikely to agree to an official increase in crude output when they meet in Algeria this weekend.

However, pressure is mounting on top producers to prevent a spike in oil prices ahead of new US sanctions on Iran, OPEC sources told Reuters on Thursday.

The new sanctions take effect in November, as a result of with Mr Trump’s decision to pull out of a 2015 agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.

Saudi Arabia is worried that any sanctions-related spike in oil prices will trigger fresh criticism from Trump.

However, it also faces doubts over its ability to compensate for a drop in Iranian supply, the sources said.

In a visit to Moscow this month, US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Saudi Arabia, the United States and Russia can between them raise global output in the next 18 months to compensate for falling oil supplies from Iran.

Iran oil crisis: OPEC says Tehran ‘VERY important’ even AFTER US sanctions

THE HEAD of the oil producer group OPEC said yesterday Iran remains a “very important member” of the cartel, as Tehran braces for a second wave of US sanctions targeting its crude exports.

The oil-rich nation, which is currently at loggerheads with Washington over its nuclear weapons programme, is currently the third-largest producer in OPEC.

“Iran is a very important member of OPEC … and we have no choice but to continue working with all parties,” Mohammad Barkindo, the chief of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, said at the Gulf Intelligence Energy Forum in the emirate of Fujairah.

Tehran, he continued, is a “very important exporter of oil”.

Mr Barkindo did not, however, explain how crude producers would compensate for declining exports from Iran, with the fresh sanctions targeting the country’s oil industry due to come into force on November 4.

Mr Barkindo added that a “permanent” framework of communication between the 14 OPEC members and 11 non-OPEC oil states, including the world’s top oil exporter Russia, would be set up in December.

The Islamic republic is currently the third-largest producer in OPEC.

But output has dropped to its lowest level since July 2016 as top buyers India and China distance themselves from Tehran in fear of the sanctions.

In May, US President Donald Trump pulled America out of what he called a “defective” and “rotten” international nuclear deal with Iran and announced new sanctions against the regime.

Under the 2015 accord, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear activities in return for a lifting of crippling economic sanctions.

Britain, France and Germany – the deal’s European signatories – jointly condemned the move and pledged to save the deal from collapse, claiming it was the only way to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

European leaders, however, have since struggled to counter the impact of the sanctions.

The Trump administration, for its part, is pushing its allies to cut imports of Iranian oil to zero.
It is also coaxing other oil producers such as Saudi Arabia and Russia to pump more oil to meet any supply shortfall, and has warned importers to stop buying oil from Iran or risk being hit with secondary sanctions themselves.

Moayyed Hosseini Sadr, an adviser to Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh, said that the sanctions could not reduce the country’s oil sales to zero because of continued high demand, Iranian state TV reported on Tuesday.

“Considering the high demand and low supply in the market, America’s sanctions cannot drop Iran’s oil sales to zero… Other oil producers cannot replace Iran’s oil,” he said.

Mr Trump, a long-time critic of the Obama-era accord, has said he is open to striking a new, wider deal with Iran that would also address Tehran’s ballistic missiles programme and hegemonic ambitions in the Middle East.

But Iran has dismissed calls for such talks with the US.

End Time Headlines – Middle East ON BRINK: Iran in furious Israel attack and insists UN ‘takes firm action’

Middle East ON BRINK: Iran in furious Israel attack and insists UN ‘takes firm action’

IRAN has demanded the United Nations (UN) condemns aggressive threats from Israel and insisted inspectors take a look at the nation’s nuclear programme.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at a secluded Israeli atomic reactor weeks ago to warn the nation’s enemies he had the means to wipe them out in an apparent reference to the country’s nuclear arsenal.

In a letter penned to the body’s security council by Iran ambassador Gholamali Khoshrou, he said: “The United Nations’ members should not turn a blind eye to these threats and must take firm actions to eliminate all Israeli nuclear weapons.”

He then demanded the UN security general forces Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and bring its nuclear programme under supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Israel has neither confirmed or denied housing nuclear weapons and has dubbed suspicion of the country having them as “ambiguity” that arose over their bid to keep hostile neighbours in check.

Israel is trying to lobby world powers to follow the United States in exiting their 2015 deal with Iran that capped the Islamic Republic’s nuclear capabilities in return for lifting of sanctions.

Since its 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran has preached Israel’s destruction, backing Lebanese militia Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

Iran’s reinforcement of Damascus during Syria’s civil war is seen by Israel as a further deployment on their borders.

Iran’s crumbling relationship with the US has put the Middle East area in crisis since President Donald Trump came into power in 2016.

Crippling sanctions put Iran has seen the nation descend into financial turmoil.

Recently, the US targeted Iran’s oil exports over its nuclear weapons programme.

Mr Trump also claimed a victory over the nation after car manufacturing giant Volkswagen today announced they would halt production in Iran.

End Time Headlines -DEEP STATE Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz Publishes Book Exposing The Secret Government In Washington

The White House, home of the United States President

DEEP STATE: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz Publishes Book Exposing The Secret Government In Washington

I spent 8 and a half years in Congress. I took about 8 and a half to 9 months to write it. It’s on sale tomorrow at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and all the other usual suspects. When I went to Congress I didn’t really know what the Deep State was or if it was real or not real, but I left knowing that it is very real. It’s something that is out in the open. It’s not some tinfoil person whose off in the corner with some weird dials trying to do things. It is a abrasion approach that many federal bureaucrats do to wait out administrations.

“The Deep State is real – I’ve seen it up close and it’s far worse than you can imagine” Congressman Jason Chaffetz

First of all, let me start by saying that I love America, always have and always will. Not only did my dad serve during WWII and Korea, my brother a United States Marine, I also had 5 uncles who all fought for the North during the Civil War. On top of all that, my dad’s family first arrived on these shores in 1732, 44 years before America would officially exist. I love our freedoms, our way of life, and the fact that we are the only country in world history, after Israel, whose nation was founded on the God of Abraham and the Bible.

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” Patrick Henry, Ratifier of the US Constitution

But there exists within our perfect picture of a free and just society, behind the Norman Rockwell imagery and rolling hills, another America which has another government. This unseen body is not put in or removed from office by election, for they are always there. For the most part, this unelected government operates invisibly, silently. Until Donald Trump was elected, most people didn’t really care too much what happened in Washington. Elections came and went cycle after cycle, Red fighting Blue and Blue fighting Red, but never looking much deeper than that.

Then the unthinkable happened. A candidate finally appeared on the scene who was neither Red nor Blue, beholden to no one except himself, and against all odds he was elected as the 45th President of these United States. For the first time in recent memory, a person became our leader who was not part of the unseen government, the Deep State, and who would not do their bidding. How did this happen? God voted.

“I spent 8 and a half years in Congress. I took about 8 and a half to 9 months to write it. It’s on sale tomorrow at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and all the other usual suspects. When I went to Congress I didn’t really know what the Deep State was or if it was real or not real, but I left knowing that it is very real. It’s something that is out in the open. It’s not some tinfoil person whose off in the corner with some weird dials trying to do things. It is a abrasion approach that many federal bureaucrats do to wait out administrations.” Jason Chaffetz

Before we go any further, let’s clarify of few things first. This article is not promoting any conspiracy theory or the rabid fantasizing of fear merchants like Alex Jones. No, this article is drawing your attention to an explosive book written by former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz who before his retirement was a powerful force in the House. His book is not about conspiracy theory, his book is about what he learned about the secret, unelected government that operates in Washington, and he calls it the Deep State.

The Deep State, what other generations referred to as a secret society, has been operating in America perhaps from soon after its beginning, but certainly began to come to light during the early days of the 20th century. The history of the robber barons like Vanderbilt and Rockefeller controlling everything, that used to be taught in schools but sadly no longer is, showed us that rich and powerful men secretly seized power and never relinquished it. Whatever America was originally created to do was recreated by these men with their limitless funds and Orwellian ambitions.

One of the richest men of the early 20th century said this about our secret government:

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford

The reason that the 2016 presidential election was so upsetting for Hillary Clinton and her ilk was that it meant there would finally be a break in the chain of command of the Deep State, something that they were not prepared for. The Deep State had done all their homework, loaded Hillary with over a billion dollars with which to wage her campaign, put the entire main stream media and social media behind her, and yet she lost the Electoral College by 33%. How ironic is that for the Freemasons?

The book by Jason Chaffetz marks the moment when the Deep State was moved out of the realm of conspiracy theory and into a serious mainstream discussion of what is really happening in the halls of power in the esoteric world of the District of Columbia.

In closing, let me remind you of the last president we had who was not part of the Deep State, and who publicly stated that secret societies would have no part in his administration. He promised the American people that he would expose the unseen government and put them on notice. Two years later, in Dallas, the Deep State would give Kennedy their response to his speech.

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.” John F Kennedy, from his 1961 ‘Secret Societies’ speech

The Kennedy Assassination: What Really Happened

Based on Dr. Kroth’s new book of the same title, he explains how President Trump’s dramatic disclosure of secret JFK files in 2017-18 changes our understanding of virtually everything. These documents are added to what we learned from the CIA’s own Howard Hunt who made a deathbed confession in 2007 which implicated LBJ. Hunt’s confession and Trump’s JFK secret releases are absolutely revelatory.

Pray for President Trump, that he will accomplish the full purpose for that which God has allowed him to assume control of the most powerful nation on earth. Pray for his salvation, that he will come to saving knowledge of the God who has placed him where he is. And pray for America that we may one day break free from the Deep State and its control over our lives.

End Time Headlines – Russian Military Plane With 14 Soldiers On Board Shot Down In Syria As Israel Takes Out Chemical Weapons Facility

End Time Headlines - Russian Military Plane With 14 Soldiers On Board Shot Down In Syria As Israel Takes Out Chemical Weapons Facility

Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening at the same time as the suspected strike. A Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses, state media reported.

14 Russian servicemen aboard plane which went missing over Mediterranean; Syria claims 2 killed after Israel fires missiles from Lebanese airspace toward chemical weapons-linked facility in Latakia

The Middle East was rocked tonight as a Russian military jet with 14 soldiers onboard was shot down as Israel launched airstrikes from Lebanese airspace on a chemical weapons depot in the Syrian city of Latakia. Israel is saying the Russian jet was shot down accidentally by Syrian forces, while others are saying that it was American Tomahawk missiles that were behind the strike.

Russia is demanding answers, Israel is refusing to comment, and America says the Russian jet was shot down by Syria. There will be very little sleep in the Middle East tonight.

FROM TIMES OF ISRAEL: A Russian military plane with 14 servicemen aboard was accidentally shot down by Syrian air defenses as they tried to repel an alleged Israeli strike on Monday, a US official told CNN. The official added that the plane was downed by a Russian-made missile system which was sold to Syria.

Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening at the same time as the suspected strike.  A Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses, state media reported.

The state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV reported loud explosions in the coastal Latakia province, saying they were likely from Israeli strikes targeting a state company for technical industries.

The Syrian army said that Israel fired missiles from Lebanese airspace, adding that two people were killed in the attack and the facility was severely damaged, Hadashot reported early Tuesday. A spokesperson for the US Department of Defense denied that the American military was behind the attack, telling the Voice of America news outlet, “I can unequivocally say this is not us.”

US officials have reported the Syrian army shot down the Russian plane while trying to thwart an alleged Israeli airstrike. Syrian state media said air defences intercepted and downed missiles targeting areas in the city of Latakia. Military sources reported missiles came from the direction of the sea in an hour-long attack.

End Time Headlines – Report – Syria mistakenly downs Russian plane while repelling Israeli strike

End Time Headlines - Report - Syria mistakenly downs Russian plane while repelling Israeli strike

Russia implies France or Israel responsible for missing aircraft; Syria claims 2 killed after Israel fires missiles from Lebanese airspace toward chemical weapons-linked facility.

A Russian military plane with 14 servicemen aboard was accidentally shot down by Syrian air defenses as they tried to repel an alleged Israeli strike on Monday, a US official told CNN.

The official added that the plane was downed by a Russian-made missile system which Moscow sold to its Syrian ally.
Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening was as it returning to Latakia province at the same time as the suspected strike by Israel, and that concurrently France was also firing rockets nearby.
“Connection has been lost with the crew of a Russian Il-20 plane over the Mediterranean Sea 35 kilometers from the Syrian coast as it was returning to the Hmeimim airbase,” the Russian defense ministry said, adding that communications were lost at the time of the suspected Israeli attack.

“Connection has been lost with the crew of a Russian Il-20 plane over the Mediterranean Sea 35 kilometers from the Syrian coast as it was returning to the Hmeimim airbase,” the Russian defense ministry said, adding that communications were lost at the time of the suspected Israeli attack.

“At the same time Russian air control radar systems detected rocket launches from the French frigate Auvergne which was located in that region,” Russia’s TASS news agency quoted the defense ministry as saying, according to Reuters.

A rescue operation has been launched.

Israel does not regularly comment on alleged strikes in Syria.

An Israeli military spokeswoman, when asked about both the reported Israeli strike and the Russian plane, said: “We don’t comment on foreign reports.”

Syrian state media earlier reported that a Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses.

The state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV reported loud explosions in the coastal Latakia province, saying they were likely from Israeli strikes targeting a state company for technical industries.

Explosions continued for nearly a half hour, said state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV, which aired footage showing streaks of white light flashing across the sky. An unidentified military official was quoted as saying Syrian air defenses intercepted some missiles heading for the provincial capital of Latakia from the sea.

Al-Ikhbariya said 10 people were injured and two required hospitalization.

A Pentagon spokesman said the United States was not involved and declined to provide further details.

“The missiles were not fired by the US military and we have nothing further at this time,” he said.

A French army spokesman also denied any involvement.

Syrian military sources told SANA that the attack came from the direction of the sea and targeted an Organization for Technological Industries center in Latakia.

The sources also claimed the country’s air defenses shot down a number of incoming missiles. The Syrian army has regularly been accused of exaggerating its interception capabilities.

The attack caused a large explosion and knocked out power to the surrounding area, according to local media.

The Organization for Technological Industries is a subsidiary of the Syrian Ministry of Defense and has been tied to the developments of both missiles and chemical weapons.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported the explosions, saying the target appeared to be an ammunition depot, part of the compound of the organization. The war monitoring group said it was not clear if the depot was for Iranian or Syrian forces.

The strikes followed a similar attack on Damascus International Airport late Saturday, which Syrian state media also blamed on Israel. A military official quoted then on state media said Syrian air defenses intercepted some missiles coming from the sea.

Other attacks were reported on September 4 that targeted sites in the coastal Tartus area and in Hama province. The Observatory said at the time that the attacks were believed aimed at Iranian military posts.

Israel is alleged to have been behind a series of airstrikes mainly targeting Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria that have joined the country’s war fighting alongside the government. Israel rarely acknowledges attacks inside Syria, but has said it will use military action to prevent weapons transfers to its enemies.

Earlier this month, an Israeli military official said the Jewish state has struck over 200 Iranian targets in Syria over the past 18 months.

End Time Headlines – John Hagee: Old Testament Prophecies ‘Like Reading the Daily Headlines’

End-Time-Headlines-John-Hagee-Old-Testament-Prophecies-Like-Reading-the-Daily-Headlines

Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas giving the closing prayer at the ceremony celebrating the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Reading the Old Testament prophets Daniel and Ezekiel is “like reading the daily headlines,” Pastor John Hagee said in a Christian Post interview about his new book, Earth’s Last Empire: The Final Game of Thrones.

Hagee has long taught that the Bible offers prophetic writings of what’s seen in today’s social and political landscape. In Earth’s Last Empire, released Sunday, the San Antonio-based senior pastor of Cornerstone Church says God’s hand is imprinted all over human history. He also claims to show how prophesy is currently being fulfilled today, along with what that all means for the future of the world.

Below is an edited transcript between CP and the televangelist where he shares more information about his new book and why people in this generation should study the Bible and stay informed about the times we are living in.

Hagee: The title reflects the Bible’s teachings of the battle between good and evil and God’s eternal kingdom.

CP: Following the Trump administration’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where do you think we are in the timeline of biblical prophecy?

Hagee: God has sole control of His time clock. I do not believe the moving of the U.S. Embassy was necessarily part of a prophetic plan. I do believe that President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem put America on the right side of history. Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital since King David established it over 3,000 years ago. The president’s decision recognized that fact.

CP: You have said this generation is the most uninformed generation concerning God’s plan for the future. Why do you think that is?

Hagee: Broadly speaking, I believe that many in this millennial generation are uniformed on most historical, political and Biblical issues. They have surrendered their right to think to a social media misinformation movement that dictates the “self-perceived reality of the moment.” With this progression comes the loss of Biblical literacy, which impacts all aspects of God’s message to the world. It is the charge of the church to teach God’s infallible Word to the next generation. Man has always been fascinated with the future. When you consider that nearly one fourth of the Bible was prophetic at the time it was written it is vitally important that Christians are familiar with its teachings.

CP: You titled a section of your book The Final Game of Thrones. Do you think we are approaching the final empire?

Hagee: First, it is futile to make predictions, but the final empire will appear after the 1,000 years of perfect peace produced by the coming Messiah. Second, the world will never end but will be recreated to be like the Garden of Eden—this, in fact, will be the final empire.

CP: In your studies, have you found Bible scriptures that specifically relate to today’s turbulent political landscape?

Hagee: A portion of my book, Earth’s Last Empire, reflects the revelation God gave to the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel of forthcoming events. Reading these prophecies is like reading the daily headlines.

My book details what Bible prophecy teaches, my goal is to illuminate today’s headlines in the context of scripture.

End Time News 2018 – U.S. Ambassador to Israel Its possible we will recognize Golan Heights

U.S. Ambassador to Israel: It’s possible we will recognize Golan Heights

Friedman revealed in the interview that Israeli intelligence prevented terrorist attacks on US soil, Israel Hayom reported.

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said “it’s possible”, that the US might recognize the Golan Heights in the future in an interview with Israeli daily Israel Hayom.

“I personally can not imagine a situation in which the Golan Heights will be returned to Syria,” Friedman said. “And giving up the territory of the Golan Heights may put Israel in a great security disadvantage.”

Friedman made it clear in the interview that the Trump administration might consider future American recognition of the Golan Heights as an Israeli territory, according to Israel Hayom.

The ambassador was asked to respond to US National Security Adviser John Bolton’s statements from three weeks ago concerning the Golan Heights where Bolton told Reuters that “there’s no discussion of it, no decision within the US government.”

Friedman clarified that Bolton was describing the current situation and not the US’s future position.

In addition, Friedman rejected the possibility that any American government would reverse President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “I do not see it happening, no matter which party is in power,” he said. “In order for any government to cancel the move, they will have to reach the conclusion that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel, but Tel Aviv.”

Furthermore, the ambassador described talks between the administration and Israel concerning the West Bank and said that the Israelis have not yet approached the Americans about creating territorial contiguity between Jerusalem and the adjacent settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, which would likely remain part of Israel in the event of territorial swaps for a two-state solution.

Friedman also addressed the recent decision by the administration to cut UNWRA budgets, and said “UNRWA is a critically damaged organization. It does not promote regional peace and perpetuates the conditions that make peace more difficult. As such, the US does not see how another investment in it will restore its value properly for the US taxpayer. ”

Friedman revealed in the interview that Israeli intelligence prevented terrorist attacks on US soil, Israel Hayom reported.

The ambassador also spoke about Trump’s overall policy and the recent investigations surrounding Trump’s administration.

END TIME NEWS-What Other Biblical Prophecies Point to the End Times and Christ’s Second Coming?

What Other Biblical Prophecies Point to the End Times and Christs Second Coming

As the world watched, the United States officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem Monday and many believe the event was the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. But according to Bible scholars that is not the only world event that points to the end times and Jesus’ second coming.

“Jerusalem is central in the theology of the Old Testament as it was in the New Testament. It is the place that God said he has chosen to pour forth his blessing. He also said that indeed the descendants of David will rule on the throne of Israel in Jerusalem forever,” Dr. Corné Bekker, the dean of the School of Divinity at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. told CBN News. “Evangelical Christians also believe that it is the place where the Messiah will return one day and rule from.”

“It is amazing to see,” CBN News Jerusalem Bureau Chief remarked on CBN News’ Facebook program, The Prayer Link.

“Zechariah said the nations of the world would come and focus their attention, here, on Jerusalem,” he said. “And I think in such a dramatic way, we’re seeing that because of the U.S. embassy being moved here.”

Accounts in both Luke 21 and Matthew 24, parallel Christ’s response to Luke when asked: “Teacher, . . . when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?” (Luke 21:7).

In Luke 21:20, Jesus said upon his return Jerusalem would be the center of political and military unrest.

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near…For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled,” the scripture reads.

Mitchell said the constant unrest between Palestinians and Israelis could be the start of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

“We have seen, In the last several weeks, especially on the Gaza border..these demonstrations trying to break through Israel’s border and that, unfortunately, has been tragic for many of the Palestinians,” he continued. “Hamas does not want to have a two-state solution, but a one-state solution that would replace the Jewish state of Israel.”

“True peace will come when the Prince of Peace comes,” Mitchell said. “In the shorter term, it’s going to be very difficult to see that true peace is going to come between Palestinians and Israelis.”

However, other world events are pointing to end times biblical prophesy.

According to the Beyond Today website, there is an end time prophecy about the “kings” of two regions meeting in Daniel 11. This could loosely be interpreted to be the historic summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12.

“We will both try to make it a very special moment for world peace,” tweeted President Trump last week.

End Time News-Typhoon “Jebi” – The strongest typhoon to make landfall in mainland Japan since 1993 leaves 1.6 million without power, 9 dead and 300 injured

Typhoon Jebi The strongest typhoon to make landfall in mainland Japan since 1993 leaves 1.6 million without power 9 dead and 300 injured

Typhoon “Jebi” slammed into western Japan on September 4, 2018, killing at least 9 people and injuring more than 300. This is the fourth typhoon to strike Japan this year and the first categorized as ‘very strong’ to make landfall in mainland Japan in 25 years.

Jebi made its first landfall in the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture around 03:00 UTC (12:00 JST), September 4 with sustained winds of over 160 km/h (100 mph), making it the strongest typhoon to hit mainland Japan since Typhoon “Nancy” in 1993. The second landfall took place in Hyogo Prefecture, just east of Kobe, around 05:00 UTC (14:00 JST).

The typhoon left a trail of destruction, killed at least 9 people and injured more than 300 others, as of 18:00 UTC, September 4.

1.61 million customers in Fukui, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara and Wakayama prefectures were left without power, in addition to 95 000 in Shikoku region, the Japan Times reports. Osaka reported wind gusts over 200 km/h (125 mph), the strongest to hit the city since 1961.

More than 700 local and international flights across western and central Japan were canceled, affecting nearly 60 000 people. Railway operators also halted some services, including on the Tokaido Shinkansen and Sanyo Shinkansen lines.

A number of trucks were tipped over by the wind on the Meishin Expressway in Shiga Prefecture, causing road closure. Another truck was nearly blown off a bridge connecting Shikoku island and the main island of Honshu, the Kyodo reports.

In Nishinomiya, a Hyogo Prefecture city near Kobe, more than 100 cars caught fire after waves inundated a yard for a car auctioneer, according to the local fire department.

1.61 million customers in Fukui, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara and Wakayama prefectures were left without power, in addition to 95 000 in Shikoku region, the Japan Times reports. Osaka reported wind gusts over 200 km/h (125 mph), the strongest to hit the city since 1961.

More than 700 local and international flights across western and central Japan were canceled, affecting nearly 60 000 people. Railway operators also halted some services, including on the Tokaido Shinkansen and Sanyo Shinkansen lines.

A number of trucks were tipped over by the wind on the Meishin Expressway in Shiga Prefecture, causing road closure. Another truck was nearly blown off a bridge connecting Shikoku island and the main island of Honshu, the Kyodo reports.

In Nishinomiya, a Hyogo Prefecture city near Kobe, more than 100 cars caught fire after waves inundated a yard for a car auctioneer, according to the local fire department.

Strong winds swept away a tanker berthed in Osaka Bay, slamming it into the sole bridge that connects the Kansai International Airport to the mainland and taking a large chunk out of the bridge. There were 11 crew members on board, but none were injured. The event left about 5 000 people stranded at the airport, one of the country’s main travel hubs. Airport officials said they will inspect the bridge on Wednesday morning and if no problems are found, transport the passengers by bus. 

The airport was closed before the incident due to heavy flooding and is not expected to reopen at least until Wednesday evening. Weather station installed on the airport registered gusts of up to 209 km/h (129.8 mph). 

Up to 500 mm (19.68 inches) of rain was forecast to fall in central Japan and up to 400 mm (15.7 inches) in the country’s west in the 24-hour period ending 06:00 JST, September 5.

According to weather officials, Jebi became the first typhoon categorized “very strong” by JMA to make landfall on Japan’s main islands since 1993 when a powerful Typhoon “Nancy” left 48 people dead or missing.

End Time Ministries. Prophecy NEWS JERUSALEM ISRAEL – Discovery of Biblical ‘Nephilim’ Remains Opens Questions Over Giants’ Roles in End of Days

'Nephilim' Remains Opens Questions Over Giants'

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.” Genesis 6:1-4 (The Israel Bible™)

Archaeologists have discovered a collection of 5,000-year old graves in China that contain remarkably tall skeletons, a description strongly reminiscent of the Biblical Nephilim who are believed to also play a significant role in the Final Battle on Mount Zion at the End of Days.

Throughout Eastern China in the Jiaojia village, archaeologists have been excavating the ruins of houses, graves, and sacrificial pits, unearthing more than 200 graves. The evidence of their discovery leads the experts to believe that the males in the village averaged a height of six feet, three inches.

That would be considered tall even by today’s standards when the average Chinese male stands at five feet, six inches. But considering the rapid growth of human height since this period, the inhabitants of Jiaojia 5,000 years ago would have been absolutely colossal by comparison

The skeletons found in China are consistent with the giants found in the Biblical narrative who were remarkably tall but still able to breed with human women. This is precisely the role Nephilim played in the beginning of the Bible preceding the story of the flood in the time of Noah. The text implies an unnatural sexual relationship between the Nephilim and human women.

The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. Genesis 6:4

According to the text, Nephilim survived the flood and later reappeared in the Land of Israel. When the spies were sent to scout out the land, they were met by Nephilim who were so large that they deeply intimidated the Children of Israel.

And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.’ Numbers 13:33

In addition to the Biblical references to this giant race of men, they figure prominently in later Jewish traditions. Rabbi Yosef Berger, rabbi of the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion, explained that the Nephilim are not human though their history and their fate are intertwined with those of men.

“The Nephilim were angels that God was forced to send to Earth as a punishment, “Rabbi Berger explained. “Some of them mixed with men, and those are the ones we read about in the Bible.”

Rabbi Berger related a teaching from Rabbi Elijah ben Solomon Zalman, the preeminent Lithuanian Torah scholar from the 18th century known as the Vilna Gaon. The Vilna Gaon connected Nephilim with the final days of the Messiah.

“The Gaon of Vilna wrote about another group of Nephilim who didn’t mingle with man. They settled beyond the Sambatyon River and are hidden from us,” Rabbi Berger said. According to rabbinic literature, the Sambation is the mythical river beyond which the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel were exiled by the Assyrian king Shalmaneser.

“They observe the commandments and are very holy, but it is written that they are eight feet tall, Rabbi Berger said. “They are truly formidable to behold. They will remain hidden until the final battle for Mount Zion, at which time they will come to help Israel in the battle.”

For those searching for archaeological proof that the Biblical Nephilim could have existed, the findings in China may serve as a starting point. The findings are truly ancient, dating from the late neolithic area, which ended between 3000-2000 BCE. If the skeletons were from an particularly tall race of people, it is reasonable to believe that similar breeds existed in other parts of the world.

Archaeologists in China also found that the taller skeletons were contained in larger tombs, indicating a correlation between height and social status. Scientists conjectured that wealthier people had access to better food, which would account for their greater height.

Bible Prophecy – NASA’s Attempt to Redirect Mammoth Asteroid Headed for Earth Has End-of-Days Implications

NASA's Attempt to Redirect Mammoth Asteroid Headed for Earth Has End-of-Days Implications

“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Yakov, and a scepter shall rise out of Yisrael, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth.” Numbers 24:17 (The Israel Bible™)

A colossal asteroid named Apophis is predicted to pass disturbingly close to Earth before 2030, an ominous astral event which Jewish mystical sources describe as having grave implications for the End of Days.

Rabbi Yosef Berger (Courtesy David’s Tomb)

On April 13, 2029, the Apophis asteroid, portentously named for the ancient Egyptian god of darkness and destruction, will pass within 18,600 miles of Earth, uncomfortably close by space distance standards. At 350 meters across, a mass of 20 million metric tons, and travelling 28,000 miles per hour, Apophis poses a formidable risk to the planet.

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, notes that all this concern about celestial activity is described in Jewish sources as accompanying the Messiah.

I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Yakov, and a scepter shall rise out of Yisrael, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth. Numbers 24:17

“This Biblical reference to a star that will accompany the Messiah was expanded in Maimonides and the Zohar to include many other astrological phenomenon described in great detail,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News.

Rabbi Berger explained that astrological events pose a specific End-of-Days challenge for all of mankind.

“The Tower of Babel was built as a challenge to God when the flood of Noah’s generation was still fresh in the people’s minds,” the rabbi said. “It was an attempt to prove that God, via nature, did not rule over man. These events also will lead men to try to prove that they are above nature and God, and that they rule themselves.”

If Apophis hits Earth, it could create an explosion equal to 880 million tons of TNT, creating a crater about 1.25 miles across and almost 1,700 feet deep. Such an impact would be devastating. Though scientists believe there is little chance Apophis will hit earth on this pass, they expect the near-miss to disrupt the asteroid’s orbit, making its next pass in 2036 unpredictable.

In response to the growing threat of the pending asteroid hit, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced last Friday that they will launch a probe to alter the trajectory of a small asteroid as it approaches Earth as a first attempt at planetary defense. The project is named the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), scheduled to take place in October, 2022 coinciding with two smaller asteroids that are predicted to make a close pass to Earth.

“DART would be NASA’s first mission to demonstrate what’s known as the kinetic impactor technique — striking the asteroid to shift its orbit — to defend against a potential future asteroid impact,” said Lindley Johnson, NASA’s planetary defense officer in Washington, in the press release announcing the project.

The hope is that with the amount of time between the DART test and the looming danger of Apophis, NASA will find a way to circumvent the asteroid to protect Earth from tremendous carnage.

Despite NASA’s determination to thwart the pending threat, Rabbi Berger noted the role scientific uncertainty will play in the End of Days.

“In the days after Messiah, it will become undeniably clear to all that God is in total control of everything,” Rabbi Berger said. “Science is a necessary tool, but any attempt to deny the ultimate authority that stands behind nature is not only a denial of God, but it is mistaken and destined to fail.”

Bible Signs of the End Times

WE NEVER SET DATES! WE MERELY PROCLAIM THE BIBLE TRUTH CONCERNING END TIME SIGNS.

When Noah and Lot warned their respective people of God’s coming judgment and destruction, the people would not listen. Instead they treated Noah and Lot as “extremists”. Then the destruction that DID come found the people unprepared. Thus it will be when Jesus Christ returns. As in the days of Noah and Lot, the soon return of our Lord Jesus will be a snare unto the people who do not heed the warning and surrender their lives to Him who knows all. (Luke 17:26-30)

This world is hearing and seeing the last warning message from God. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision! (Joel 3:14)
PLEASE HEED GOD’s →→ FINAL WARNING AND CALL OF MERCY ←←

What you are about to discover in this site is amazing evidence that we in 2017, are living right in the end of times for this world as we know it. The prophecy of Daniel 2 alone shows we are in the ‘time of the end’, and all the other evidence proves we are in the very end times. The Biblical signs are clear for all to see, and after reading through this site with open eyes, even the scoffers will struggle to argue against it. Sure, many people throughout history have been proclaiming that they were living in the last days and the end of the world was nigh, and some of the Bible signs have always existed from the early days. But never has there been a time before when ALL these events were evident in so many diverse places and with such frequency and intensity. Our Generation is the FIRST generation to fulfill ALL the biblical signs. So we will show you from the many following signs on this and other pages, that without doubt we are living in the final years that the Bible prophesied were to come.

Please note: We are NOT here to set dates or times. We are here only to warn the world that the second coming of Jesus Christ is NEAR, even “at the door”Matthew 24:33 …’So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.’

If you take into consideration all the signs, there is no mistaking that our generation is living in the last days, nearing the second coming of Jesus. Problem is, Satan can see how close we are to the end of the world, which is why he brings certain ‘end times groups’ into the spotlight, proclaiming false dates for the second coming, which when those dates come and go, causes many people to turn away completely from the truth. The truth being that WE ARE living in the end times. The Bible is very clear on that. We just can’t set specific dates for Jesus’ return. But we CAN know when the end is near … And we are certainly now seeing ALL these things”.

Before you read on, please note this important point. In Matthew 24, Jesus speaks of wars, earthquakes and such things, but says these are just the “beginning of sorrows” and “the end is not yet”. Now that word “sorrows” in the original language meant “birth pangs”, the pain in childbirth. Now birth pangs speak of frequency and intensity. And as a woman gets nearer the birth, the “pangs” become more frequent and intense. This is true also for the signs of the end times. These signs began not long after Jesus’ day, and as Jesus quoted, the end would not yet be, because this was just the beginning of sorrows. But throughout history we have seen the “pangs” (signs) become more frequent and intense, culminating in the day we live in now where the pangs are so frequent and intense that we must be right at the time of “delivery”, when Jesus is to return. So don’t let anyone fool you into believing that the signs today are just the beginning of sorrows and the end is not yet.

Hebrews 1:1-2 …’God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.’

“The beginning of sorrows” started nearly 2000 years ago with the persecution of the early church and the destruction of Jerusalem. We are living right at the end of time.

Historical Evidence – Daniel 2

Daniel 2:31-45 ..’Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image .. This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet … Thou art this head of gold … And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron … And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided … Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter.’

More than being a “sign” of the times, this is an historical FACT of where we stand in earth’s history. The vision that God gave King Nebuchadnezzar as shown in the Bible verses above, and subsequently the interpretation to the prophet Daniel, consisted of an image of a man which depicted all the “ages” and ruling kingdoms from the time of Babylon until the second coming of Christ Jesus (the destroying Rock, which is the eternal kingdom of God).

By the way, if you are not convinced that the Bible is any sort of authority, then study the prophecy of Daniel 2. It perfectly foretold the future kingdoms of this world up until the end of time. And history confirms it as ACCURATE.

As you can see from the picture, the different parts of the man represented the different “ages” and ruling kingdoms of this world. And what is the last “age”? It’s the feet of the image. And when did the last age start? It started in the year 476 AD. when Rome fell and split into the ten kingdoms of Europe. Which means this world has been in the “last age” for over 1500 YEARS! So add that to the amazing signs of the last days that you will see throughout this site, and you are left with no doubt that we are living right at the end of the toes on the image and right at the end of time, soon to see the second coming of Christ Jesus.

End Time Sign – INCREASE OF KNOWLEDGE

Daniel 12:4 …’even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.’

I Just love this sign, because it is clearly pointing to our day today, and it cannot be refuted by anyone. Throughout history we have had a slow and little increase in knowledge. But take a look at the EXPLOSION of knowledge over the past 150 years! Up until recently in history, the fastest form of transport was a horse. Now man can travel at hundreds of miles per hour, and cross the globe in a day! Technology has developed at a rapid pace, which has led to great improvements in computer power, scientific discoveries and the medical profession. Just look at how much we have learned about the human body with things like DNA and Cellular Structures etc. And how about “running to and fro”? This is pointing specifically to our day with planes, trains, automobiles and the busyness of modern day life. We are definately running to and fro and have knowledge like no time before us.

“run to and fro and knowledge increase” applies also to knowledge of Bible truths …

 

This Bible sign has a dual application. “running to and fro and knowledge increase” also applies to knowledge of Biblical truths (see Amos 8:12). During the “dark ages”, for over 1000 years, knowledge of Biblical truths were surpressed by the Roman Catholic Church. But since the protestant reformation and breakaway from Rome, God’s people have been running to and fro in His Word FREELY and knowledge about great Bible truths have been revealed. God now has an end time remnant church with the FULL gospel truth to take to the world before the end comes, which was needed to fulfill the sign about taking the true gospel message to the whole world. Which you will read about further down the page.

End Time Sign – ABILITY TO ENFORCE THE MARK

Revelation 13:17 …’And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.’

Now this is a sign that most people miss! Have a think about it … What needs to happen in order for the “beast system” to stop people from buying and selling if they refuse the mark? We need to have a worldwide financial system whereby everything bought and sold is through electronic means, not cash.

Has there been any time in history where this could happen? No. Are WE living in a day where this could happen? Most certainly, yes! And the powers of this world are now trying to make cash obsolete, and are actively pushing pure electronic forms of payment, like “PayPal” and “Google Wallet” for instance. Take a look at the news and you will see this being reported in different countries of the world.

Sweden close to being a Cashless Society

Cash is Dead, are Credit Cards Next?

Nigeria Deploying Biometric Technology Throughout the Banking System

Mastercard Tracking Global Economies Heading for Cashless Societies

Israel Leaders Pushing for a Cashless Society

UN World Food Program Pushing Smart Cards and Digital Payment

Cashless Society Drive Gaining Momentum in Rwanda

Above is just a few examples of the major push throughout the world for a cashless society. We have the techonology to do this now, which in times past wasn’t possible. And look at the financial turmoil around the world today. This will help in bringing in a “unified” currency to help make it possible to enforce the mark of the beast. Technology isn’t the mark, but technology is needed for proper enforcement of it. This is a SURE sign of the end times!

End Time Sign – MAN OF SIN REVEALED

2 Thessalonians 2:3 …’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.’

Paul here is saying that “THAT DAY”, the second coming of Christ, will not come until the falling away happens and that man of sin is revealed. Now many professed Christians today believe that the ‘falling away’ is something that will happen in the last days. But this is a wrong view, because the falling away began not long after the New Testament church and was completely fulfilled when the Roman Catholic Church took control and merged Christianity with Paganism, and punished anyone who did not bow to her so called ‘authority’ and false teachings. And that man of sin who was “revealed” to the world during the Protestant reformation is none other than the pope(s) of the Roman Catholic Church.

See proof of who the man of sin is HERE.

So, the falling away has happened and the man of sin HAS been revealed. Therefore the second coming of Christ can happen and this shows we are living in the end times.

End Time Sign – VIOLENCE AND SEXUAL IMMORALITY

Matthew 24:37 …’But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.’

Luke 17:28-30 …’Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.’

What was it like in Noah’s day and Lot’s day? We need to go to two other Bible verses to see what it was like. Genesis 6:13 tells us that in Noah’s day the “earth was filled with violence.” And in Jude 1:7 it says that in Lot’s day, Sodom and Gomorrha had given itself over to “fornication and strange flesh”. So violence prevailed in Noah’s day and sexual immorality (including homosexuality) prevailed in Lot’s day. And this would be a sign of the end times before Christ Jesus returns.

2016 – MURDERS RISE IN 29 OF THE LARGEST CITIES IN AMERICA IN 2016

So our question is, does violence and sexual immorality (including homosexuality) prevail in the world today? Very much so, yes! Not only does violence and fornication rage across the whole world, homosexuality has become a “norm”. Since 2001, at least 14 countries have fully legalized homosexual marriage, Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, New Zealand, Uraguay, France, with some parts of Mexico and America doing the same. And there are more countries being added to this list all the time.

US Supreme Court Declares Gay Marriage LEGAL in Historic decision

There are currently 110 MILLION Cases of sexually transmitted diseases with 20 MILLION new cases every year in America alone! (source)

Large rise in sexually transmitted diseases since 2012 in England (source)

Today, the world is FULL of violence and sexual immorality. You only need turn the tv on and you will see violence, fornication and homosexuality everywhere. The cities of the world today are especially bad and are no longer safe places to be.

What are we told in Jude 1:7? We are told that what God did to Sodom was set forth as an example to us today. And what did God do to the people of Sodom? He DESTROYED them with fire because of their wickedness, which included homosexuality!

End Time Sign – RISE IN SPIRITUALISM

1 Timothy 4:1 …’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.’

How about a rise in spiritualism and the occult in the world? Have we seen this? Well, just look at the television and movies today. “Twilight”, “Harry Potter”, “Lord of the Rings”, and a whole host of other television series and movies containing the occult and spiritualism. It has invaded our lives like no other time before us. And what is the cause of this? It is the false teaching of the immortality of the ‘soul’.

Spiritualism is also the cause of these ‘near death experiences’ which Satan is deceiving more and more people with.

Many people don’t realize that spiritualism has also invaded the majority of churches around the world, due to this false teaching of the immortality of the soul. Yet the Bible clearly teaches that “the dead know NOTHING” (Ecclesiastes 9:5), and that when we die we return to the dust of the ground from where we came (Genesis 3:19). But the churches have embraced this false teaching of the immortal soul, which is another sign of the times we live in.

“A belief in spiritual manifestations opens the door to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and thus the influence of evil angels will be felt in the churches.” (E.White, The Great Controversy, p.603-604)

See the truth HERE about what happens when we die.

End Time Sign – MASS ANIMAL DEATHS

Hosea 4:3 …’Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.’

This one has become a fairly recent phenomenon. During the last few years we have seen fish, birds and other animals die in huge numbers. Since 2010, millions of fish have been turning up dead in lakes, rivers and the sea, with this deadly red tide partly to blame. Also, Birds have been dropping out of the sky in huge numbers. And we are seeing other unusual animal deaths all around the world. Including Bees and Bats dying in their millions.

“Mass animal die-offs are on the rise, killing billions and raising Questions.” (source)

The Honey Bee crisis deepens as evidence shows there has been a dramatic increase in die offs .. up to 50 percent of Bees are dying now, creating worry over food supply. (source)

The Rise of Jellyfish over the past few decades is a harbinger of the health of the world’s oceans! (source)

The Oceans are on the Brink of a Catastrophe! (Source)

The book of Hosea not only applied to the nation of Israel. It also applies to our day and contains prophecies concerning the state of the world we live in today. So is this text from Hosea fulfilled in our day? Is it a sign of the end times? Yes!

End Time Sign – NATURAL DISASTERS

Luke 21:25-26 …’and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’

So what about this Biblical sign? Is this being fulfilled in our day more than any other day before us? Most definately. Just look at all the natural disasters we are getting now every year. (CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A CHART SHOWING A TWOFOLD INCREASE OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS) Are the “seas and waves roaring”? Yes. Tens and even hundreds of thousands of people are being wiped out from Tsunamis and floods, and men’s hearts are certainly fearing what is happening to this world. In America in 2010, a record was set for the number of Federal Disaster Declarations given over a year. That number was 81. In 2011, that number was broken again, with 99 Disaster Declarations given, costing over 32 Billion Dollars. And 2012 produced another year of record breaking disasters. Dr. Robert Hartwig states … “The number of U.S. disaster declarations has been trending sharply upward, particularly over the past 15 years.” (Source) … We are really seeing things happening in this world now with regards to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy today. Click on the following charts.

           

See these Amazing Maps of Natural Disasters.

“How Natural Disasters Changed the World in 2012”An estimated 32.4 million people worldwide were displaced due to natural disasters. (Source)

We are seeing an increase in volcanic activity worldwide

End Time Sign – EARTHQUAKES

Matthew 24:7 …’and earthquakes in divers places.’

The scoffers love to bash this one, but from the evidence available, it is clear that earthquakes are not only increasing in frequency, but also appearing in more and more “diverse places”, which the Bible predicted.

Remember, these signs are to intensify during the last days, and that is exactly what is happening with earthquakes.

Take a look at the following information and judge for yourself.

New Zealand felt a record 32,000 earthquakes in 2016 – link

We had a ‘millenium’s worth’ of earthquakes in just 2 years, during 2014 and 2015 (source).

Big earthquakes have doubled in 2014 compared to each year since 1979 (source).

A global SURGE in great earthquakes between 2004 – 2014. (source).

Current graphs clearly show an alarming worldwide trend of increasing earthquake strength and frequency. These  results are in agreement with the USGS statistics page, which shows an increase in the frequency of stronger earthquakes (M > 5.0).” (source)

A series of massive quakes within 2 days in 2012 prompted an earthquake expert to suggest that the earth is “cracking up” (link)

As of January 2017, there were around 3,465 earthquakes happening a month. (Link)

God is giving us plenty of warning through these events, and we will be without excuse if that day of Christ’s return comes upon us like a thief in the night and catches us unaware. We need to heed the signs and get ready!

Please see these amazing videos showing a graphical look into the earthquakes around the world. Christ said that there would be earthquakes in “diverse” places, and these amazing videos certainly fulfills that prophecy.

        

End Time Sign – UNSEALED PROPHECY

 

Daniel 12:4 …’But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end.’

This sign carries on from the “increase in knowledge” sign above. But I wanted to separate it to show you that this sign alone reveals we are living in the last days. God tells Daniel to seal the book. In other words, to seal the prophecies contained within it. And that at the “time of the end”, the prophecies would be unsealed and we would know what they mean.

The prophecies of Daniel 2 and 7 have been UNSEALED ←←

Daniel’s 70 week prophecy has been UNSEALED ←←

The 2300 day prophecy has been UNSEALED ←←

So this alone confirms that we are living in the end times. But taking all the other signs together will show us how close we are to the second coming of Christ Jesus, the Son of the living God, and the end of the world.

Please see our END TIME PROPHECY website for many more Bible prophecy truths.

End Time Sign – FALSE CHRISTS and PROPHETS

Matthew 24:4-5,11 …’many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ … and many false prophets shall arise and deceive many.’

We’ve certainly had our fair share of false Christ’s appearing around the world. Also, today we have many false religions proclaiming many ways to eternal life, like Roman Catholicism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Folk Religions, Wicca, and many other ‘new age’ movements. With false prophets like the Pope, Muhammad, Krishna, Buddha, etc., leading these religions.

We also have many false prophets and leaders in “Christian” churches, like the the prosperity gospel preachers and people like Oprah Winfrey leading these new age movements. And millions of people have been sucked in and deceived by these ‘false prophets’. There are also many who appear to be ‘sheep leading the flock’ but in fact are ‘inwardly ravening wolves’ leading the people to destruction. People like Rick Warren who preach just enough truth to lull the unlearned mind into following them into apostasy! Yes, this sign has certainly been fulfilled.

Please prayerfully seek the truth yourself, by studying the Word of God in the Bible.

End Time Sign – WORLD PUSHING FOR PEACE

1 Thessalonians 5:3 …’For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.’

Is this sign being fulfilled in our day? Yes. There is an ecumenical movement today which we were told about in end times prophecy that is uniting the world in an effort to bring peace. Churches and faiths and political leaders are uniting like never before in an effort to bring peace to this world. But this ecumenical movement is not of God, because we as God’s people are not to unite with the world or any false religion (Amos 3:3, 2 Corinthians 6:17, Revelation 18:4). When they do declare “peace and safety” then destruction will come upon them (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

End Time Sign – WAR

Matthew 24:6-7 …’And ye shall hear of wars … For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.’

Many people say that this isn’t a sign of the end times, because there have been wars since the beginning. Yes there have been wars since the beginning, but when you look at the frequency and intensity of wars, then it’s plain to see that this is a sign of the times we are living in. During the 20th century alone, more people have been killed as a result of war than all previous centuries combined. This has resulted in HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of people being killed in wars like World War I, World War II, Russian Civil War, Congo War, Korean War, Vietnam War, Iraq, etc. Today, there are conflicts and wars raging all around the world (Source). And in 2011, armed conflicts greatly increased according to this report.

So is war a sign for today? Of course is it. But remember, we are not to take any of these signs ON THEIR OWN. Jesus said … “when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near”. (Matthew 24:33). Taking one sign like this on it’s own will not prove we are living in the last days. All signs need to be fulfilled.

End Time Sign – FAMINE

Matthew 24:7 …’and there shall be famine.’

Just look at the famine that has struck the world over the past 30 years. Thousands die everyday of starvation and according to this news article global starvation is spreading and increasing causing 1 Billion people to go hungry around the world. Add to that the failed crops throughout the world because of extreme weather, and bees dying off in massive numbers, and we have a worldwide shortage of food on it’s way.

Not only that, we have the likes of Monsanto who are poisoning the crops that are left!

2.4 BILLION people survive on less than 2 dollars per day!

The sad thing about this sign, is that the amount of food that is wasted in the developed world could feed the hungry! So think about those in need next time you are about to fill up your shopping trolley with food that will be wasted. The Bible teaches us that we need to be helping the poor and needy, by giving them of our bread and clothing. Rather than throwing away what we don’t want or need.

End Time Sign – CHRISTIANS BEING KILLED

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.’

Christians were being killed for their faith in the first century, as well as during the dark ages when the Roman Catholic Church ruled the world and killed tens of millions of God’s people. This is being repeated today in places like the Middle East, China, North Korea, Pakistan, India, Nigeria, Egypt, where many Christians are being killed for their faith in Christ Jesus everyday. And once the mark of the beast is enforced soon, then this persecution will spread to the Western World.

End Time Sign – INCREASE IN SIN

Matthew 24:12 …’And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.’

Idolatry, Adultery, Violence, Lust, Greed, Disrespect, Homosexuality, Theft, Lying, Aggression, Selfishness. Is this Biblical sign fulfilled in our day? Absolutely! Just go back 50 years and you would not see half the sin and wickedness that we see in people today. Look at what is portrayed on our TV screens and in the movies and video games! Violence, lust and all manner of evil. This is one of the major end of time signs. Our world today is aching under the burden of sin and I’m sure God will not allow it to continue for much longer.

And do you know the worst thing about “sin” today? It is made into “ENTERTAINMENT”! Through movies, television programs, radio, magazines, comics, you name it! The majority of people in this world today, including professed Christians are happily entertained by the very thing that put the Son of God on the cross! What an abomination!

And please note, I am not just talking about the sins of non Christians. A sure sign that we are living in the end times is the fact that the Christian churches are full of unconverted, sin loving people! Many of them thinking they don’t need to keep the ten commandments, and can continue living in sin, as long as they “believe” in Jesus and go to church once a week. Yes, iniquity has abounded!

End Time Sign – CHRISTIANS TURN AWAY FROM TRUTH

2 Timothy 4:3-4 …’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.’

This sign of the times has certainly been fulfilled in our generation. A great majority of professing Christians these days do not study the Bible much. Instead they just rely on their pastor’s word as the truth. Let me give you an example. Back during the Protestant reformation, where many people died standing up for the truth of God’s Word. God revealed a great truth to the world about who the antichrist was. All of the reformers knew the truth about the Roman Catholic Church being the Bible antichrist. But as time has gone on and false teachers have crept into the churches, the majority of Protestants now reject this great truth that God opened up to the early Protestant leaders, and they now EMBRACE that antichrist church and have become a part of Babylon!

The above end time sign from Timothy also says that they would be turned unto fables. Let me give you a few fables that the majority of Christians have been turned to. 1. The rapture. 2. Looking to Israel for fulfillment of end times prophecy. 3. Mark of the beast being a microchip. 4. The Battle of Armageddon being a physical battle. And there are many more.

Please see our prophecy site for the truth on these topics.

Great and precious truths were opened to the people of the Protestant reformation, but the reformation failed because the people did not continue seeking the truth. Although God does have a remnant church with the full gospel truth, we now live in a day where the majority have turned away from the truth and been turned to fables. This sign of the end times has certainly been fulfilled in our generation.

End Time Sign – GOD DESTROY THOSE WHO DESTROY EARTH

Revelation 11:18 …’And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.’

Are the nations angry today? Yes, we have uprisings, conflicts and wars ALL OVER the earth. And what about man destroying the earth? Well, all throughout history, the most dangerous weapon that man had was a bow and arrow. Man could not do much damage to the earth. But now just look at what man can do and IS doing to the earth through industry, destructive weapons of war, chemicals, oil exploration, depletion of the forests and so on. Just look at the massive oil spills that have happened during the past 30 years around the world.

Just recently, it was revealed that Russia had dumped enormous amounts of radioactive material into the ocean, including 17,000 containers of radioactive waste, 19 ships containing radioactive waste, 14 nuclear reactors, including five that still contain spent nuclear fuel; 735 other pieces of radioactively contaminated heavy machinery, and the K-27 nuclear submarine with its two reactors loaded with nuclear fuel (Link). The rivers and seas are becoming completely polluted, and man is certainly destroying the earth like no other time in history, and God’s wrath is about to fall upon them!

We have been living in the time of judgment since 1844 and once the judgment has ended, THEN Christ Jesus will return to “reward” the saints and “destroy those who destroy the earth”.

End Time Sign – GOSPEL PREACHED TO WORLD

Matthew 24:14 …’And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.’

Notice Jesus said “THIS” gospel? There are many “gospels” being preached out there, but it is the TRUE GOSPEL that is to be preached to the world before the end can come. So is this being fulfilled today as one of the end time signs? Yes, because God’s people are preaching the true gospel throughout the world like never before, through the internet, tv and satellite, radio, in the pulpit, and through print. We have never had the resources available before to reach the world the way we can now. This ministry alone receives thousands of visits everyday from people from all over the world seeking the truth. So yes, this Bible sign is BEING fulfilled now.

What end time message is God’s true servants taking to the world today? THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF REVELATION 14

Take a look at this interesting quote from the 1980’s … “Before the final end, the world is to hear the message of the Lord’s coming. Had no more rapid means of conveyance and communication been found than existed a century ago, it would have been impossible to communicate such a message to one generation. But such a work must be done for the last generation … Then the last generation everywhere must hear the message, and this calls for rapid transit, and lightning couriers to bear the tidings to various parts of the earth.” (Bible Readings for the Home, 1988 Ed.)

And what do we have now for “rapid transit” of the gospel message around the world? The internet and satellite! We are living in a time like no other and the gospel message is soon to reach the final corners of the earth, and THEN the final stages of this earth’s history will take place.

But what about all the different languages you may say? Well, ministries like Faith Comes by Hearing provides a free audio app that shares the Bible in 883 languages! And that number is growing all the time. So yes, the languages of the world are being reached with the Word of God.
