Weekly News Update - February 18, 2011
It is because the end of the world is an absolute certainty that we have been given unmistakable signs to watch for with prayer so that we will have the understanding of what is really going on in our world, not the anthro-centric CNN / Hollywood version that is constantly being beamed at us through the media. The prophetic signs of events that will comprise the ‘End of the World’ may be divided into the following categories (Please review my series of articles titled ‘Is this the End of the World’ for the reasons why these categories are relevant and important. News reports that fit these categories have been linked and prophetic Biblical references have been provided to prove that these events are pointing to an imminent fulfillment of all ‘End of the World’ prophecies recorded in the pages of The Bible.
In the following section, News reports have been grouped according to category. The heading has been linked to the original story and a brief synopsis has been provided. My comments and observations are in italics below the original report. Please click on the link to read the full story and / or to watch videos if included in the story.
· ECONOMY / The end of the world is inextricably linked to the end of the global economy. Just like the internet links all points on the globe, the Global Financial / Economic / Banking systems link all nations. So for the first time in history, it has become possible for all nations to sink simultaneously since no nation on Earth, exercises Economic Sovereignty in any meaningful way. The prophesied end of the world by definition means the end of the whole world, not just parts of it. So Economic normalcy cannot continue in one part of the world while other parts are rapidly disintegrating. ‘Globalization is a very important piece in the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy for even until about 20 years ago, the world was nowhere near as interconnected financially as it is today, and China was nowhere near the economic powerhouse it is today. I believe China will be instrumental in crashing this global house of economic cards, and as nations disintegrate economically they will descend into anarchy that will lead to the fulfillment of the rest of ‘End Times’ prophesies.
Borrower nations are not blessed of God, and the US is now the most indebted nation in the history of the world.
FOOD INFLATION / SHORTAGES / FAMINES
Catastrophic food price inflation and shortages of food and famine are prophesied in the Bible.
As written in the Introduction to SIGNS OF THE END: Prophesies being fulfilled?, in a world created by an infinitely intelligent Creator with purpose and intent, it is not possible that it would come to an end without reason. Though the reasons why God would create an ‘evil world’(Galatians 1:4), are complex, the reasons why it must come to an end are more apparent. Please read the introduction or watch this short video to understand that the wicked systems of this world cause so much pain, misery, suffering, and death in this world that a Righteous and Just God can tolerate only for a season; and that season of tolerance is soon coming to an end. The signs of the end that are apparent from the News Reports listed in this series are only a symptom of the diseased condition of the human spirit, soul and mind.
GEOPOLITICAL TENSIONS: WAR / CIVIL UNREST / ‘TERRORIST ATTACKS’
In my last radio program on End of the world prophesies, I had hypothesized that the end of the US dollar is inevitable, the real cause for which has been official policies. However to divert attention from those truly responsible, smokescreens will be created that will be blamed for the demise of the dollar. One such possible smokescreen would be Cyber – attacks on Western banking and financial computer systems. Therefore I was not at all surprised to read a story such as the one cited above.
Now that the good times are coming to an end worldwide, people are pining and longing for those days. However when the good times were rolling, hardly anyone stopped and gave thanks to God, from who descend all GOOD THINGS. When times are prosperous and God speaks, few, if any pay attention for they are too busy enjoying the good times. Will they turn to Him in times that will be anything but good?
EXTREME WEATHER / EARTH CHANGES
The End of the World events as prophesied in the Bible include much Extreme weather, and geophysical destruction, from Earth based systems such as mega storms, hurricanes, cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, and such. There will also be much destruction through cosmic bombardment by space based projectiles, most often theorized to be asteroids by scientists and Hollywood. Movies such as Armageddon and Deep Impact are works of fiction but though the cause of the destruction described in such movies may not be altogether accurate, yet the scale of destruction as depicted in these films will most likely be accurate.
As the story out of Korea reveals there will be a sacrificing or culling of animals worldwide due to strange diseases such as foot and mouth disease, which I believe is also known as ‘Mad Cow’ disease. I don’t think many people would consider such calamities as judgments from God, therefore they seek answers anywhere but from God who alone has power over these plagues. When millions of animals are culled, is it not a fulfillment of scriptures such as Deut. 28:31? Do these things not place a great strain on the already strained food situation in the world?
From their description, these locusts are not what we would consider to be natural creatures. It is almost certain that they are manufactured. Technologies such as those shown in the video above are already advanced enough to manufacture the ‘locust’ army of Revelation 9:1–1 1. Melding of man and machine is no longer the realm of Science – Fiction; it is ongoing in the present day . Transhumanism as described in Joel 2:7–9, which is a description of Super Human soldiers will soon come to be demonstrated as reality.
ANOMALOUS / UNCOMMON / PARANORMAL NEWS
As animal habitats shrink, and as food shortage problems escalate worldwide, it stands to reason that animal attacks on human will increase in number. Perhaps this is the reason why we are told that many people will be killed by the beasts of the earth in the last days.
At the end of 2010, the last article I posted on my blog was titled 2011 Predictions. I am truly surprised by how many of the events that were expected to transpire based on Biblical prophecy have already come to pass in just over a month in 2011. Are we witnessing, or will we be witnessing the beginning of the end of the world in the very near future? It is a bit too early to declare that this is indeed the case but there may not be much doubt left by the end of this year if events continue
