Iran? Russia? and maybe China? What is happening to our world?

The news is getting scary. You have probably heard that people in Iran are demonstrating against their government, and things are getting violent. The news, where I live, is that an army base has been attacked. In Russia, there are other problems. We know about the Russian army attacking Ukraine, a close neighbor. It’s now a complicated story, and the Government of Russia is bringing compulsory military service, to keep their effort going. Apparently, people in Russia are not happy about this, and they are demonstrating in the streets. Russia is the largest country in the world in terms of landmass. In China, things seem to be more peaceful, and there doesn’t seem to be a violent crisis. COVID lock-downs are still happening, but young adults are not getting married and having babies, and the population is declining. A younger generation of new adults is distracted by the stress of living, in their country. This may seem trivial, but over time, a smaller population will mean a smaller economy, and that will be a smaller …

Did the Russian president publicly threaten nuclear war?

With Putin’s invasion starting to falter as Ukraine launched a successful counter-attack against the invaders, Russia’s now desperate leader, Vladimir Putin, has publicly threatened to use tactical nuclear weapons, the Daily Mail reports. Putin made the announcement in a public statement to the Russian people on Wednesday where he also ordered a partial mobilization for the hugely unpopular war. The Daily Mail adds that if Putin were to do this, there were indications that the Americans would respond with attacks on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. There were no threats of America or NATO using nuclear weapons in the counter-attacks. The Daily Mail writes: His comments come after the Russian premier sent shockwaves around the world, as he announced the ‘partial mobilization’ of his reserve military forces to continue his murderous invasion of Ukraine.  And in a chilling warning directed squarely at Western and Nato leaders, desperate despot Putin insisted he would use ‘all means’ necessary to defend swathes of territory seized or set to be annexed by Kremlin forces before threatening to use nuclear weapons.  …

The significance of five ‘unblemished’ red heifers that were delivered to Israel

Recent news about the arrival of five ‘unblemished’ red heifers at Tel Aviv’s International Airport in Israel has caused quite a stir among those who study end-times prophecy. The red heifers were sent from Texas and were previously inspected by Jewish Rabbis to confirm that they were unblemished. What is interesting is that Evangelical Christians helped in the procurement of the cattle. The Mosaic Law required an unblemished red heifer to be sacrificed for the sins of Israel outlined in Numbers 19. It involved one of the most key sacrifices associated with the Temple. And according to a Christian website, theIsraelguys.com, the arrival of the red heifers is important prophetically because it paves the way for building the third temple in Jerusalem: “According to rabbis and leaders in the Orthodox community, these heifers could be used to reinstate many of the practices of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, even before the 3rd Temple is rebuilt. “[…] “At the welcoming ceremony, the small group witnessed the unloading of the heifers, recited blessings of thanksgiving, sang and …

Has the World Economic Forum infiltrated Canada’s cabinet?

Started by Klaus Schwab in 2017, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is a group of self-proclaimed (see video below), economic, academic and political elitists who believe they know what is best for the world. They are globalists at heart and want to basically tell the world’s serfs how they must live their lives. Recently, Breitbart’s editor-in-chief, Alex Marlow, reported on comments made by WEF’s Executive Chairman, Klaus Schwab, in 2017 allegedly bragging about how his elitist organization influenced Vladimir Putin and as well infiltrated Canada’s cabinet. Breitbart writes: The World Economic Forum, based in Switzerland, “openly claim they’re trying to influence governments. Unelected people, small town of elites in Switzerland, openly advocating to influence governments, Western governments in particular,” Marlow said. “They don’t have any representation of populism,” he continued. “They don’t have any representation of nationalism on their board. It is all the same globalist mindset.” Marlow added that “they’re grooming a younger generation of globalist talent. They’re focused on cultivating this next generation, and they’ve proven that they’re quite good at this.” The editor-in-chief …

When Gorbachev was the Antichrist

By Dr. Michael L. Brown

Are you old enough to remember when Christians thought that Mikhail Gorbachev was the antichrist? After all, he was the whiz kid who came out of nowhere and was shaking the Soviet Union. Perhaps he also aspired to take over the world? And then he had that mark on his forehead. Some said it looked like a dragon! Could he be the man?

Massive 7.6 earthquake hits Papua New Guinea

In his vision of the end-times, the Apostle John saw several massive earthquakes striking the earth, but John described one in Revelation 16 that would be the greatest earthquake to ever hit the world. And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. (Revelation 16:18 NASV) In fact, of the 16 earthquakes mentioned in the Bible, seven of them are found in the Book of Revelation, so it seems they will become a theme of the end times. On Sunday, Sept 11, 2022, a large earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.6, hit the Pacific island of Papua New Guinea. There has been substantial damage reported from the quake and five deaths, which is expected to climb. Major buildings and homes suffered extensive damage, and roads now have cracks running down them. People felt the shocks 480 kms away, including those living in Australia. …

Disney-owned network releases disturbing satanic cartoon show

Parents and faith groups are expressing concerns about the release of a disturbing animated film, entitled “Little Demon”, by a network owned by Disney, FXX, CBN reports. Perhaps even more concerning than its name is the actual premise of this show. CBN provides more of the show’s details: “Little Demon,” a new animated show about a woman who mates with Satan and produces the Antichrist, is raising eyebrows and making cultural waves. But amid the cacophony of frustrated retorts to the show — which airs on the Disney-owned network FXX and stars Danny DeVito as Satan — faith leaders and media experts are sounding some consequential theological and practical alarms for parents and children alike. CBN adds this description of the show provided by the network: “Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul,” reads the show’s description. Though FXX’s target audience is …

WEF’s elitists want your child microchipped

The World Economic Forum (WEF), founded by German economist Klaus Schwab, is made up of financial and political elitists who gather to decide what is best for the world. The organization is now calling for parents to microchip their children, the Daily Caller reports. The Daily Caller explains: The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) latest dystopian nightmare is here, and it’s being spun as a “superpower” aimed at helping children. The WEF is always looking forward when it comes to human development (instead of fixing current problems) and focusing on augmented realities as a very real part of our future, according to their its guest article from WEF contributor and Vice President of R&D at IMEC Kathleen Philips. The next natural step to detach from reality as God made it, proposed by Philips? Microchipping ourselves and our children, apparently.

The EU to introduce a digital ID system in 2023, and critics warn it’s a ‘Trojan horse’ for tyranny

Criticism is mounting over plans by the European Union to implement a digital identity program by the fall of 2023, CBN reports. According to the EU’s ‘official’ propaganda, the phone app will function as a digital wallet which allows people “to store and exchange documents and legal information, while fully controlling which data we want to share with whom.” Of course, as many point out, there are apps that already do this, so why would the government want to duplicate this service? And the critics are concerned that the government will use the app for nefarious purposes to track and control its citizens. Cristian Terhes, who was elected to the European Parliament, grew up under communism in Romania, and he has been a very vocal critic of the plan: “Clearly we are witnessing right now, the ‘Chinafication’ of Europe,” said Terhes, “because we see what is happening in China right now with the social credit score, where the government is monitoring. … All the people from the beginning to end, everything that they do, everywhere …

Mob loots 7-11 store in LA

With woke LA County DA George Gascon, recently celebrating a failed attempt to recall him because of his soft-on-crime approach, a group of an estimated 100 people joined the celebration by looting a 7-11 store in Los Angeles. The Daily Mail provides more details: The gang of people ransacked the store while shouting, completely destroying the COVID-19 safety screen that had been set up to grab as much as they could in Los Angeles, California. A group entered the convenience store near Figueroa Street and El Segundo Boulevard, with surveillance footage showing the looters shouting at each other, on August 15. They can be seen running across the store and grabbing drinks, cigarettes, lottery tickets, bags of chips and other items. According to the Los Angeles Police Department the suspects also started throwing items at them, with around 100 people involved in the chaos. Ironically, an LAPD detective commented, ‘We really want to prevent this from becoming a new trend.’ READ: Shocking moment mob of looters RANSACK and destroy 7-Eleven store in Democrat-led LA, leaving …

Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon warns that ‘truth’ is under attack

Seth Dillon is the CEO of the Babylon Bee, a popular website that publishes satirical stories on current news events. Dillon is also a Christian and this past week spoke at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia, where he warned that truth is under attack across America. The Christian Post reports. “We’re living in crazy times, unusually crazy times, actually outrageous times where absurdity is everywhere,” Dillon began. “Truth is under attack. Reason is under attack.” “Comedy is under attack. And you can’t speak up and try to defend any of these things, or they try to suppress your voice and silence you. Freedom of speech is under attack.”   Dillon said the world is “increasingly becoming more and more difficult” for Christians to speak “the truth boldly in the public square.”  READ: Babylon Bee CEO tells megachurch the ‘truth is under attack’ in America Fact-checking satire Though the Babylon Bee is satirical, Snopes, a left-wing website, actually fact-checked one of the Bee‘s articles, where it satirically wrote that CNN had purchased two massive industrial washing machines …

Camels on the Horizon? The Eve of Destruction?

You might have heard about the camels on the horizon. Lots of people are talking about it. The story is; that a Sheik in Dubai in the Persian Gulf region gave his opinion, in an interview, and his words of wisdom have caught the attention of people around the world. In summary: Hard times make resilient people, and those people fix social problems and make a better society. That easier life produces soft and whiny people, and they make things worse. It’s a cycle of repair and decay. Prosperity and good times, lead us to decay and destruction. People who like this message generally think we are in the soft and whiny stage, and destruction is near. Apparently, many Christian preachers are interested in the message. The Sheik of Dubai is like a wise prophet, to some people. Social cycles are normal, and predictable. And if that is true, we may be at the end of a prosperity peak. We may be on the eve of destruction. What do you think? I’m a Christian, and …

Did Baal show up at the Commonwealth Games?

In his vision of the end times, the Apostle John saw a time coming when the people would openly worship the beast, which of course is none other than Satan, the god of this world. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear. (Revelation 13:8-9 NIV) It is difficult to imagine how the world could be so deceived, that humanity would be enticed into worshiping this false god. But a bizarre thing happened at the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham, England in August 2022. As part of the opening ceremonies, a massive (six-story high) bull with flashing red eyes and smoke pouring out of its nostrils was dragged into the main arena. As strange as that was, this wasn’t even the bizarre part. When the mechanical bull entered the arena, a woman walked in front of it, to calm it down. After this happened, dancers …

Uncivilized

By Rick Renner

The material I am about to present concerns a subject that I normally wouldn’t write about. However, it provides a powerful illustration of the depravity Paul prophesied would occur during the last days (see 2 Timothy 3:2,3), and I believe it serves as a wakeup call to the Church. Sometimes we need a stark reminder of the rapid degeneration of society’s moral fabric that is occurring all around us at an ever-increasing rate so we don’t grow complacent and just “go with the flow” of society’s downward moral spiral. As the Church, we have a vital role to play in these perilous times as standard bearers of truth. So bear with me as I take on that role to share some disturbing but important information, and you will understand my point.

What Does the Bible Say About the End of the Age?

By Dr. Michael L. Brown Let’s be brutally honest here. It would be arrogant and foolish to imagine that, in one short article, any of us could make a definitive statement about the Bible and the end times. After all, these issues have been debated for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and the debate continues to rage until this day. Plus, what Bible are we talking about? And what do we mean by the end of the age? Let’s answer those questions first. When talking about “the Bible,” I’ll be referring to the version of the Bible shared by the largest number of people, namely, the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. Judaism accepts only the Hebrew Scriptures (called the Old Testament by Christians) as the Bible. And Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians accept the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Apocrypha as sacred Scripture. But all Christians agree on the Old and New Testament as being Scripture, so for simplicity’s sake, when we speak …

Jesus predicted increased lawlessness

When Jesus warned that people’s hearts will grow cold because of increased lawlessness in the end times (Matthew 24:12), I never once thought it would be due to politics. I was wrong. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is running to be governor of the state of New York. He was campaigning in Perinton, New York on Thursday night (July 21, 2022) when a 43-year-old man, David G. Jakubonis, allegedly jumped on the stage and tried to thrust a sharp weapon at Zeldon’s neck. Fortunately, Jakubonis was immediately tackled and arrested. But here is the lawlessness kicker. According to reports, the accused, who the police charged with second-degree attempted assault, was released the next morning on his own recognizance, The Blaze reports. Some have alleged that the accused may have mental health issues. Politics is producing lawlessness. Guard your heart.

Why is Ezekiel 38 trending on Twitter?

Twitter exploded after photos emerged of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Iran’s Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. It was Putin’s first international visit since his invasion of Ukraine, and it was unmistakable that Putin was showing the world that he still has allies. Also in attendance was Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is trying to broker a deal that would end Russia’s blockade of Ukraine’s ports, allowing needed grain shipments to leave. But it left Turkey looking like a Putin ally as well. However, the meeting also caught the attention of those studying Biblical end times events because it could be a precursor to fulfilling an infamous end times war, also called Armageddon, where several nations attacking Israel. This included Gog and Magog, Persia, Cush and Gomer, described in Ezekiel 38. Persia, of course, fits modern Iran, but there have been a few questions on who Gog and Magog described since it seems to be the major player in this war. Gog is the leader of this …

Man killed over windshield fluid splatter?

The New York Post reports that the father of two children died in a road rage incident, after being shot by someone driving a BMW. Dennis Anderson and his partner Brandy Goldsbury were driving along a coastal road in Oregon, when Dennis sprayed windshield fluid to clean his car window. A BMW was passing at the time, and it seems that some fluid may have spattered on the passing vehicle. The outraged driver of the BMW sped ahead, but a few miles later the passing couple saw the vehicle parked in a rest area. After Anderson and his partner passed, the BMW allegedly pulled out behind and began harassing their vehicle, trying to force it off the road. When Anderson finally pulled over to call 911, the BMW pulled up beside and its occupant opened fire, killing Anderson. Kind of reminds me of the Apostle Paul’s description of the last days leading to Christ’s return:  But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of …

Reckless

By Rick Renner

Many years ago, Denise and I took our sons to Rome for a study tour of the ancient world with a special emphasis on early Christian history. As we stood inside the great Roman Coliseum, we listened as our doctoral guide spoke to us at length about the barbarism and atrocities that were so loved and cheered by the Roman citizens who packed that great stadium nearly 2,000 years ago.

A couple characteristics of the end times

In 2 Timothy 3:1-5, the Apostle Paul talks about the changes that will take place in people as we enter the difficult last days. He says that, among other things, they will become “ungrateful” or unthankful. Connecticut police state that they have arrested a man who allegedly pulled a gun on two women when they failed to say thank you after he opened the door for them at a store, the New York Post reports. The man immediately fled after pulling out the gun but was later picked up by police. It is uncertain why the two women failed to express what would be considered a small courtesy, but the man certainly overreacted to the situation. The Apostle Paul also added that people in the end times would be “without love,” “unforgiving”, and “without self-control.” READ: Connecticut man pulls gun on women who didn’t thank him for holding door, cops say

Hints of the digital age in end times prophecy

As we read of the Biblical end times, we see hints scattered through the prophecies of the modern digital age we are living in today. When the angel of the Lord delivered a prophetic message to Daniel about the end times, God’s messenger said these prophecies would be sealed until the end of the age that would be marked by a rapid increase in knowledge: 4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 ESV) Even Sir Isaac Newton, a 17th century scientist who studied the end times prophecies, suggested that there would need to be an increase in technology to fulfill the events he saw taking place in the end times. One example include the death of the two prophets of God, who had tormented the world, in the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John’s vision of end-times events. John saw that when the beast killed the two prophets, people from every tribe and …

The New World order?

There has been a lot of talk about how left-wing politicians are trying to use the COVID pandemic as the basis for a great reset.

Did a reporter try to infiltrate Sean Feucht’s intercessor group?

In his last message to the elders of the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul warned them to be on alert for wolves that were going to attack the flock (Acts 20:29-31). Jesus issued a similar warning, but with a slight twist. He said beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15 ESV) The Lord said there would be people who would purposefully try to infiltrate the church, pretending to be spiritual and like-minded. And if possible, some may even try to worm their way into leadership positions. And worship leader Sean Feucht got a lesson on how easily this can happen when a reporter tried to infiltrate one of his groups. Over the past two years, Feucht held worship/prayer sessions across the US, including spots where the riots took place and the street where George Floyd died. Most recently, Feucht has set up intercessor groups to pray for the Supreme Court decision on the potential overturning of Roe …

Looming famine and food shortages?

In Jesus’ description of the end times, Christ said there will be several signs indicating that the countdown to His second coming has started: 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8 NKJV) And when you look at this list, we can add checkmarks to what is happening today. Jesus talked about: Wars and rumors of wars [✔]; Plagues (Covid, MonkeyPox) [✔]; Earthquakes [✔]; and also famines. This has left some wondering if we have entered this phase of the end times. And with the recent events, several experts have issued warnings of the potential for famine and food shortages. Famine warning A recent report by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization warned there is a risk of 49 million people living in …

Don’t be surprised by the fiery trials

Police have arrested a man who allegedly threw Molotov cocktails at two churches in North Carolina on Sunday morning, May 29, 2022 while services were going on, Christian Headlines reports. The attacks, which were apparently 30 minutes apart, took place at Gray’s Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Hope Mills at 10:37 AM and then shortly after 11 AM at New Calvary Missionary Baptist Church located in the nearby town of Fayetteville. Security cameras at both churches, caught a man throwing several Molotovs. Fortunately, no one was injured in either attack. Police have since arrested Terry Wayne Raeford of Fayetteville, NC charging him with “two counts of two counts of manufacture, assembly, possession, storage, transportation, sale, purchase, delivery, or acquisition of a weapon of mass death and destruction; exceptions, and two counts of malicious damage to occupied property by use of explosive or incendiary; punishment.” In North America, Christians have been able to worship peacefully with no fears of personal attacks, but that is starting to change. And it shouldn’t surprise us. The Book of Revelation …

Is civilization collapsing?

When Jesus described the events leading to His Second return, the Lord said that they would start off as birth pangs, preparing the way for the main event. Some wonder with COVID, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, warnings of nuclear war, asteroids, Communist China’s emerging threat, and concerns about looming famines and food shortages, that we have entered the birth-pang stage (Matthew 24:6-8). And as these events slowly unfold, we are also witnessing a breakdown in society. Breakpoint recently had a column about the social upheaval taking place in the U.S.: According to the FBI, there’s been a 50% uptick in “active shooting incidents” since last year, and that’s not counting the shooting that left 21 dead in Uvalde, Texas. “The two attacks (in Buffalo and Uvalde) are not outliers,” announced National Public Radio. “Mass shootings happen in the U.S. with depressing regularity.” According to their count, 213 so far this year. A variety of things and people are being blamed: access to guns, social isolation, politicians, talk show hosts, authorities, harmful ideas, and more. Behind …

Has Israel started the construction of the Third Temple?

Many Christians believe that a third temple will be built in Jerusalem as part of the end times prophecy leading to the second coming of Christ. And because of this, there was recent excitement on several end-times websites, when Israel365, an Orthodox Jewish website in Israel, reported that Orthodox Jews have started building the third temple. For the most part, a group of Orthodox Jews has manufactured all the utensils and furniture necessary for a functioning temple, including the sacrificial altar. They have also set up a school to train the priests on how to perform sacrificial offerings. All that is missing is the temple itself. Though at the moment there is no political will in Israel to build a temple, that would undoubtedly face violent resistance from the Muslims, there is sufficient room on the Temple Mount for a Jewish Temple. The Jordanian Waqf currently administers the site. Israel365 reports that several Orthodox Jews have started preparing the stones that would eventually be used for the construction of the temple. According to the Jewish …

McDonald’s offering a chance to win a tarot card?

CBN is reporting that McDonald’s restaurants in the US are giving people a chance to win a tarot card if they use the McDonald’s app to purchase fries. CBN explains: In an unfortunate infusion of occultism, customers using the McDonald’s app to buy a medium order of fries were given a free McDouble or McChicken and the chance to snag a tarot card reading. McDonald’s reportedly partnered with Madam Adam, a tarot card reader with expertise in astrology, to offer readings to select customers. To “win,” customers reportedly needed to go to Madam Adam’s Instagram or TikTok posts to share their Zodiac sign and name. Apparently, the offer coincided with the appearance of the Mercury retrograde, which gives the optical illusion that Mercury is going backwards.
