Birth Pains Headlines – Randy Nettles - https://www.rev310.net/post/birth-pains-headlines
In Matthew 24 Jesus’ disciples asked about his 2nd Coming and the end of the age. Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 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. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:4-8).
Jesus was referring to the time immediately preceding the 7 year Tribulation, otherwise known as the Day of the Lord or Jacobs Trouble. Matthew 24:9-14 describes the first part of the Tribulation and verses 15-25 refer to the second part, known as the Great Tribulation. The ‘abomination of desolation’ referred to in Matthew 15 is first mentioned in Daniel 9:27: “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years); but in the midst of the week, he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
Daniel was the first prophet/witness to declare the prophecy of the end times 7 year Tribulation. Jesus was the next prophet/witness to discuss this end-times prophecy, as mentioned in Matthew 24 and elsewhere in the Gospels. However, Jesus never mentioned it lasting for 7 years. John, the apostle of Jesus, was the third witness to verify the prophecy of the end-time Tribulation. He wrote about it in great detail in the last book of the Bible, Revelation.
John mentions certain events of the Tribulation lasting for 42 months (Revelation 11;2 and 13:5), some for 1260 days (Revelation 11:3 and 12:6), and another for ‘time, times, and half a time’ (Revelation 12:14). Of course, these are just three different ways of describing 3.5 years. Daniel also refers to two specific events or time periods of Jacob’s Trouble lasting for a 'time, times, and half a time’ (Daniel 7:25 and Daniel 12:7). Nowhere does John mention the Tribulation lasting for 7 years. However, it is assumed that Revelation 6:2 is referring to the same person as Daniel 9 does. He is the Antichrist. Thus, the conqueror of Revelation 6:2 will begin the Tribulation when he confirms the covenant with the many (Israel and others) and it will last for 7 years as described in Daniel 9:27.
According to God’s law, “by the mouth of two or three witnesses, a matter shall be established.” (Deuteronomy 19:15). The matter of the Tribulation is established by the three witnesses, Daniel, Jesus, and John.
In Revelation 5, John has a vision of God, the Father, sitting on His throne with a scroll in His hand. The scroll was sealed with 7 seals. No one in heaven or earth was found to be worthy enough to open the scroll or to look at it until Jesus Christ prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its 7 seals. Revelation 6 describes the first 6 seal judgments of God upon the earth during the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation. This article will focus on this chapter, as most astute Bible eschatologists believe mankind is nearing this time due to our fullness of sin. When sin reaches its peak, God’s judgment is sure to follow.
Current headlines (for the last week) that we have gathered from Rapture Ready News confirm this belief, in my opinion. Take a look for yourself and see if you don’t agree that these headlines are precursors (birth pains/beginning of sorrows) to the seal judgments of God that will begin the dreaded Day of the Lord. If this is true, we know our time is short and the Tribulation is close. The good news for Christians, however, is the Rapture is even closer.
First Seal: The Conqueror – Revelation 6:1-2
“Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, Come and see. And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”
CHRISLAM UPDATE: Pope Francis Has Private 40-Minute Phone Call With Emmanuel Macron Discussing His Recent Success In Ur Of The Chaldees
Like the gift that keeps on giving, Emmanuel Macron does not disappoint. We learn today that Macron had another private phone audience with Pope Francis, for the better part of an hour, and they had two urgent topics to discuss. The first being the huge Chrislam victory Pope Francis scored with his trip to UR of the Chaldees, and the second being how to rule and control a post-COVID world. (Note: Emmanuel Macron and Pope Francis may not be the Antichrist and false prophet, but they sure are beginning to fit the profile).
Godless America: Anticipating The Antichrist
Oh, how America is preparing for the Antichrist with a Godless mindset. A recent article in the Los Angeles Times and Yahoo News is headlined, “Why America’s Record Godlessness is Good News for the Nation.” In part it reads, “The secularization of U.S. society–the waning of religious faith, practice and affiliation–is continuing at a dramatic and historically unprecedented pace. While many may consider such a development as a cause for concern, such a worry is not warranted. This increasing godlessness in America is actually a good thing, to be welcomed and embraced.” Are you serious?
Second Seal: Conflict on Earth – Revelation 6:3-4
“When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come ]and see. Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.”
Rumors of War – Will The US Help Ukraine If Russia Invades?
Could this be the spark that causes World War 3 to erupt? At this hour, Russian and Ukrainian military forces continue to rush toward the conflict zone and to say that things are “tense” in the region would be a tremendous understatement. When Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed Decree No. 117/2021 on March 24th, it was essentially a declaration of war against Russia. Since that time, Russian forces have been massing along the borders in numbers that we have never seen before.
Beijing Accelerating Timeline for Possible Invasion of Taiwan, Expert Warns
TAIPEI, Taiwan—The Chinese communist regime is accelerating its plans to invade Taiwan, an expert warns, as Beijing ratchets up military maneuvers against the island. Twenty Chinese military aircraft—including four nuclear-capable H-6K bombers, 10 J-16 fighter jets, two Y-8 anti-submarine warfare aircraft, and a KJ-500 airborne early warning and control aircraft—entered Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on March 26, according to Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense. It was the largest incursion ever reported by the ministry. The CCP sees Taiwan as a part of its territory and has threatened war to bring the island under its fold. The self-ruled island is in reality a de-facto independent country with its own democratically-elected government, military, constitution, and currency.
Japan Poised To Allow Coast Guard To Fire On Chinese Vessels In New Legislation
New legislation being considered that would radically alter current Japan Coast Guard policy toward how it engages foreign vessels in Japan’s waters could inadvertently hurl the region toward a hot conflict involving China.
On eve of Iran talks, Netanyahu warns Tehran against harming Israel
On the eve of talks to revive the Iran deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tehran that it faced “grave danger” if it harmed Israel, as he recalled the battle for Jaffa in the 1948 War of Independence.
Israel reveals it has the ability to ‘Completely Destroy’ Iran’s Nuclear Plan
the new unit formed last year to deal with Iran and strategic issues—the Strategy and Third-Circle Directorate. According to Kalman, 2020 was a good year for the battle against Iran. “I don’t want to call it a turning point year, but it was a year of major changes,” he said.
Philippines defense chief says China intends to occupy more South China Sea areas
The Philippines’ defense chief said…China was looking to occupy more areas in the South China Sea, citing the continued presence of Chinese vessels…manned by militias in disputed parts of the strategic waterway. “The continued presence of Chinese…militias in the area reveals their intent to further occupy (areas) in the West Philippine Sea,” Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said…
Israel Bracing For Iran To Possibly Strike From Their Own Territory
In response to their recent exchange of naval attacks, which reached its height on Tuesday with a strike on an Iranian spy ship in the Red Sea, Israel is readying for a potential assault on its own assets inside Israel from Iran’s territory ….
Joe Biden’s going to get us all killed! Prepare for World War 3 and nuclear annihilation with America sent back to the Dark Ages if Biden and Democrats get their way
Reporting that Joe Biden and the US have declared their ‘unwavering support for Ukraine’ at a time when Russia is flooding Crimea with ‘trains full of tanks and escalating tensions,' we’ll remind you that according to numerous military experts as we’ll explore within this ANP story, Russia has far surpassed the US military in numerous ways, with their unstoppable hypersonic nuclear weapons a threat to our electrical grid, America’s ‘Achilles heal’ that should it be brought down for any lengthy period of time could lead to our destruction.
US Navy sends warship near Taiwan as China sends 15 warplanes
On Wednesday, USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer sailed through the Taiwan Strait, between the Chinese mainland and the island of Taiwan, amid China flying 15 warplanes around Taiwan in an ongoing pressure campaign against the island. The U.S. 7th Fleet…said, “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific…
Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth – Revelation 6:5-6
“When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
Massive U.S. food shortage coming – get a backup supply ready RIGHT NOW
The hunger-relief organization Feeding America estimates that our country will be short eight billion meals in the next four months. Their food banks put out three times the usual this year, due to Covid-19 joblessness and homelessness, totaling over 17 billion pounds of food. On average, at least 10 percent of Americans cannot afford food that contains actual nutrition (organic whole food and non-GMO).
Kim Jong-un warns of North Korea crisis similar to deadly 90s famine
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has urged citizens to prepare for hard times ahead, following warnings from human rights groups that the country faces dire food shortages and economic instability. Speaking at a party conference, Mr Kim appeared to compare the situation to a deadly famine in the 1990s. North Korea has shut its borders due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth – Revelation 6:7-8
“When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come and see. So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.”
WEF globalist Klaus Schwab declares unvaccinated people to be a threat to humanity
Several dozen heads of the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Economic Forum (WEF), and various other globalist bodies have declared that the “Great Reset” needs to include the establishment of a global “pandemic” treaty to ensure that all humans are “vaccinated” in accordance with government edicts.
East Africa deploys huge volumes of ‘highly hazardous’ pesticides
The desert locust infestation, described by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 2020 as a “scourge of biblical proportions,”
Drought concerns heighten in region
After a dry summer last year and very little snowfall in the Upper Midwest, nearly 75% of the Western U.S. is in drought conditions and climatologists say the outlook isn’t good for growers.
Covid-19: Italy returns to strict lockdown for Easter
Italy has entered a strict three-day lockdown to try to prevent a surge in Covid-19 cases over Easter. All regions are now in the “red zone” – the highest tier of restrictions – as the country battles a third wave, with about 20,000 new cases a day. Non-essential movement is banned, but people are allowed to share an Easter meal at home with two other adults.
Iran launches operation to fight swarms of desert locusts
Iranian authorities are engaged in a large-scale operation across several provinces in southern Iran to battle swarms of migratory locusts that threaten billions of dollars worth of food in farmlands at a critical time for the country. Large waves of yellow-colored desert locusts…some of the most destructive migratory pests in the world, have traveled to Iran from the Arabian Peninsula for a third year in a row.
Bait & Switch: Scientists Now Saying That Current COVID Vaccines Will Be Ineffective Within A Year And Everyone Gets Jabbed Again And Again
This is so funny, and by ‘funny’ I mean deadly, end times, super-serious and life-threatening kind of funny, if there is such a thing. Now that they have convinced half a billion people to take two rounds of the COVID jab, including people who swore last year they would never take it, today comes the ‘update’ that within a year all those jabs will be ineffective, and it will all have to be done over again. And again, and again, and again, I think you see where this is leading, don’t you?
Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances – Revelation 6:12-17
I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and ]behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Solar storm that appeared like ‘a great fire’ in 1582 could hit Earth AGAIN this century, causing billions in damages and knocking out power grids worldwide, experts warn
A ‘great fire’ appeared in the sky over dozens of cities across Europe and Asia in 1582 and eye-witness accounts of this solar storm have recently been uncovered. The solar storm that hit the Earth on March 8, 1582, is comparable to those in 1909 and 1989, which suggest they are ‘a once-in-a-century occurrence and ‘one or two can be expected in the 21st century,’ experts say. If a similar intense solar storm were to hit our modern world, it would cause billions of dollars in damages and knock out power grids worldwide.
To be declassified: UFO broke sound barrier with no sonic boom
According to Newsweek, Ratcliffe said the upcoming Pentagon report will include more sightings and reports of objects moving in seemingly impossible ways or breaking the speed of sound without an accompanying sonic boom. The unexplained sightings occurred all over the world, he said, and include events picked up on automated sensors and not just by human eyes.
Something Invisible Is Tearing Apart The Nearest Star Cluster to Earth
Strange things are afoot in the Milky Way. …the closest star cluster to our Solar System is currently being torn apart – disrupted not just by normal processes, but also by the gravitational pull of something massive we can’t see. …an interaction with something big, about 10 million times the mass of the Sun, could reproduce the observed phenomenon.
New Clues Emerge in the Hunt for Answers to Mysterious Fast Radio Bursts
Fast radio bursts, one of the most enduring mysteries of modern radio astronomy, maybe closer to being understood according to a recent study, which has produced what appear to be the most precise time estimates yet obtained about the mysterious signals. Lasting only a few milliseconds or less, fast radio bursts are one of the greatest modern space mysteries.
An asteroid just buzzed past Earth, and we barely noticed in time
A 100-metre-wide asteroid passed just 70,000km from Earth on Thursday, Australian time. It was discovered by the Brazilian SONEAR survey just days ago, and its presence was announced mere hours before it zoomed past our planet. The lack of warning shows how quickly potentially dangerous asteroids can sneak upon us. The asteroid, reassuringly designated 2019 OK, is not a threat to Earth right now. However, 2019 OK and other near-Earth asteroids do pose a genuine risk. The Tunguska explosion in 1908 and the Chelyabinsk meteor in 2013 were equivalent to large nuclear explosions, and under the wrong circumstances, a meteor impact could devastate a city.
Asteroid equal to the size of football field to fly past Earth on May 4, but here’s the good news
NASA has detected another asteroid heading towards the Earth at a much faster pace than the previous ones. This comes after the God of Destruction Apophis, and the biggest asteroid of the year 2021, has passed through the Earth. Scientists have said that this asteroid will pass safely from a distance of about 3.4 million kilometers from the Earth. … this asteroid will pass near the Earth on May 4.
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Could the U.S. Could Soon Be Involved in Wars in Taiwan, Ukraine And the Middle East Simultaneously? - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/could-the-u-s-could-soon-be-involved-in-wars-in-taiwan-ukraine-and-the-middle-east-simultaneously/
Warmongers are now firmly in control in Washington, and they are pushing us toward war a little bit more each day. A military conflict with Russia, China or Iran would be a nightmare scenario, but there is also a possibility that we could end up fighting all three of them simultaneously. Such an outcome would have been unthinkable under the Trump administration, but times have changed. Biden administration officials have been boldly declaring that “America is back”, and they have been trying to aggressively exert U.S. influence all over the globe. Unfortunately, the rest of the world is not as intimidated by the U.S. military as it once was.
Tensions with China have been rising for quite some time, and Taiwan has become the central point of contention.
Taiwan continues to edge closer to declaring formal independence, and the Chinese insist that is a red line that must never, ever be crossed.
In recent weeks, the Chinese have been attempting to send a message by repeatedly sending military aircraft into Taiwan’s airspace, and on Monday we witnessed the most alarming incursion yet…
China’s People Liberation Army flew 25 warplanes into Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) on Monday, its largest incursion yet as tension in the Taiwan Strait continues to escalate.
According to Taiwan’s defense ministry, the PLA warplanes – 14 Jian-16 fighter jets, four Jian-10s, four H-6K bombers, two Y-8 anti-submarine warfare planes and one KJ-500 airborne early warning and control aircraft – entered the island’s southwest zone on Monday.
China has been conducting extremely detailed military exercises which simulate an invasion of Taiwan, and the military plans for such an invasion are already drawn up.
Everything is ready to go for when the order is finally given.
The only thing stopping the Chinese is the U.S. military, and on Sunday Secretary of State Antony Blinken once again confirmed that the U.S. will stand behind Taiwan…
“What we’ve seen, and what is of real concern to us, is increasingly aggressive actions by the government in Beijing directed at Taiwan, raising tensions in the Straits. And we have a commitment to Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act, a bipartisan commitment that’s existed for many, many years, to make sure that Taiwan has the ability to defend itself, and to make sure that we’re sustaining peace and security in the Western Pacific. We stand behind those commitments. And all I can tell you is it would be a serious mistake for anyone to try to change the existing status quo by force,” Blinken said Sunday during an interview with NBC News’ Meet the Press.
China understands that an invasion of Taiwan would mean war with the United States, and so the Chinese will probably hold off for the moment.
They will be waiting for an opportunity, and that could come when we are tied up with a major military conflict on the other side of the globe.
Speaking of which, the Israeli cyberattack on the Natanz nuclear facility is yet another sign that the “shadow war” between Israel and Iran is getting dangerously close to a shooting war.
Israel has not formally taken responsibility for the attack, but even the Israeli media is acknowledging what everybody else already knows…
Iran blamed Israel on Monday for an attack on its underground Natanz nuclear facility that damaged its centrifuges — sabotage that imperils ongoing talks over Tehran’s tattered nuclear deal and brings a shadow war between the two countries into the light.
Israel has not claimed responsibility for the attack, but Israeli media widely reported that the country had orchestrated a devastating cyberattack that caused a blackout at the nuclear facility. Israeli officials rarely acknowledge operations carried out by the country’s secret military units or its Mossad intelligence agency.
In the aftermath of the attack, Iranian officials pledged to “take revenge” on Israel…
“The Zionists want to take revenge on the Iranian people for their success in lifting the oppressive sanctions, but we will not allow it and we will take revenge on the Zionists themselves,” Zarif said in comments carried by Iran’s official IRNA news agency.
If a major war does erupt and missiles start flying back and forth between Israel and Iran, the U.S. will enter the conflict on the side of Israel.
The Iranian nuclear program has been a seemingly unsolvable problem for a number of years, and I think that Israeli leaders are starting to realize that there simply is not going to be a diplomatic solution.
Meanwhile, Russia and Ukraine continue to edge closer to a major military conflict. In fact, one of the most popular news anchors in Russia just stated that the Russians may be forced to “de-Nazify” Ukraine by force…
Russia is ‘one step from war’ with Ukraine, state TV has warned in the latest bout of saber-rattling between Moscow and Kiev that has jangled nerves across Europe.
Dmitry Kiselyov, a Russian news anchor who has been called a ‘Putin propagandist’ in the past, issued the warning during a primetime broadcast in Russia on Sunday.
He branded Ukraine a ‘Nazi’ state, saying that Russia may be forced to ‘de-Nazify’ it by force – a process he said would bring about its ‘economic and military collapse’.
And a top Russian official just made headlines all over the world by suggesting that a full-blown military conflict “would be the beginning of the end of Ukraine”…
The deputy head of Russia’s presidential administration, Dmitry Kozak: “I support the assessment that the start of military action – this would be the beginning of the end of Ukraine.”
Of course things would have never gotten to this point if the Biden administration hadn’t decided to use Ukraine as a tool to put pressure on Russia.
I do not think that Russia intends to invade Ukraine right now. But when the Russians learned what the Biden administration and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky were planning, they rapidly massed forces in Crimea and eastern Ukraine.
The Russians are going to keep those forces in the region for the foreseeable future, and that is going to keep tensions high.
Hopefully this show of force will convince Biden administration officials that they should not try to push things any further. Because the Russians are quite willing to strike first if they believe that a move by the other side is imminent.
And once the Russians start pouring across the line of separation, the U.S. and Russia will be at a state of war, and that is something that nobody should want to see.
Of course the United States can’t exactly afford any new wars at this point, because we are absolutely drowning in debt.
If you can believe it, our budget deficit for the month of March was a whopping 660 billion dollars…
The U.S. federal budget deficit widened 454% in March from a year earlier, as the government issued a third round of stimulus checks to help Americans ride out the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The budget gap rose to $660 billion in March, the Treasury Department said Monday, from $119 billion in the same month last year. Revenue rose 13% to $268 billion in March, while spending increased 161% to $927 billion.
A budget deficit of 660 billion dollars for an entire year would be bad enough.
To achieve that level in just one month is catastrophic.
Needless to say, even one war would make our fiscal situation much worse, and multiple conflicts would probably break us financially.
Of course if a global war does erupt, financial problems won’t exactly be among our greatest concerns at that point.
Covid Detection Microchips Beneath the Skin - From Science Fiction to Reality - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=4665
As the debate over Vaccination passports continues to heat up - the Pentagon has just added a whole new level of concern over privacy and government control with revelations that is has created a microchip to be inserted under the skin, which can detect COVID-19 infections.
Retired Colonel Matt Hepburn revealed the device on 60 minutes Sunday night. 'You put it underneath your skin and what that tells you is that there are chemical reactions going on inside the body, and that signal means you are going to have symptoms tomorrow,' he explained.
'It's like a "check engine" light,' said Hepburn.
'Sailors would get the signal, then self-administer a blood draw and test themselves on site.
'We can have that information in three to five minutes.
'As you truncate that time, as you diagnose and treat, what you do is you stop the infection in its tracks.'
He said they were inspired by the struggle to stem the virus' spread onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt, where 1,271 crew members tested positive for the coronavirus.
If current vaccination rates in the military are any indication however, many troops may not be too eager to jump on the microchip bandwagon.
Research shows that so far a third of troops have refused to take the vaccine. Many indicated they were concerned over long term health affects but also, ironically, that it might contain a microchip devised to monitor them or be used for some type of of government control.
This is not the first time researchers have come up with a method to help manage and detect covid or show proof of vaccinations.
Researchers had previously found a way to leave a "mark" under the skin that will enable medical authorities to know whether someone has been vaccinated or not. This "mark" is created using a specialized dye that is not visible to the naked eye, and the dye is delivered under the skin as part of the vaccination process.
If that sounds quite creepy to you, that is because it is very creepy. Scientists at MIT wanted to create an easy method for keeping track of vaccinations in parts of the world where electronic databases are not commonly used, and what they came up with is extremely alarming...
MIT researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient's vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.
"In areas where paper vaccination cards are often lost or do not exist at all, and electronic databases are unheard of, this technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history to ensure that every child is vaccinated," says Kevin McHugh, a former MIT postdoc who is now an assistant professor of bioengineering at Rice University.
Unsurprisingly, the MIT article announcing this discovery stated that this research had been funded "by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute Support (core) Grant from the National Cancer Institute".
In order to see the "mark" that has been left behind by the specialized dye, authorities will need a "specially equipped smartphone", and we are being told that the "mark" can be read for at least five years after the initial injection...
The researchers showed that their dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least five years under the skin, where it emits near-IR light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.
To many, this invention may sound like a much less painful method to deliver vaccines and a great way to keep track of who has been vaccinated.
But for many others, this sort of technology is a giant move in the wrong direction. In addition to being a gross violation of our privacy rights, many are concerned that we could eventually be approaching the days warned about in Revelation chapter 13...
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
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.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
According to the Bible, someday people will not be able to perform basic day to day activities without a mark, often called the Mark of the Beast.
And even now, we are being warned that those that do not take a COVID vaccine may not be able to live normal lives. Just consider what Ontario's Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Williams just said...
"What we can do is to say sometimes for access or ease of getting into certain settings, if you don't have vaccination then you're not allowed into that setting without other protection materials," said Williams.
"What may be mandatory is proof of...vaccination in order to have latitude and freedom to move around...without wearing other types of personal protective equipment," he added.
We are going to need proof that we have been vaccinated "in order to have latitude and freedom to move around"?
The news is full of stories each week that contrast vaccination issues with restrictions of freedoms. This week New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said border workers who refuse to take the C0VID-19 vaccine will lose their jobs.
Another story that caught a lot of people off guard was how only vaccinated people were being allowed to evacuate the island of St Vincent (due to volcanic activity) via cruise ship. Those not vaccinated had to find alternative means.
Even such issues as shared parental custody has become a hot topic when one parent refuses to vaccinate. Look for lots more controversy in the days ahead.
Will we eventually get to a point where we are not allowed to go to work and our kids are not allowed to go to school without a COVID vaccine? Or perhaps you will not be allowed into a public place to conduct business without proof?
And could such restrictions foreshadow a day when an even more sinister scheme appears on the global stage?
These are such unusual times, and while vaccinations and microchip technology by themselves may not be the Mark of the Beast, this may be a preview of what is to come.
Nearing Midnight: The Causal Nature of Sin Today – Todd Strandberg - https://www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/
There have always been sinful people in America. What is different about sin today is that people do it with not a hint of moral hesitancy. The moral compass that God gave everyone at birth has been smashed.
I ran across a news story about the possibility of actress Elizabeth Hurley starting a reality show with her 18-year-old son Damian. Hurley chose to set the record straight by posting a racy semi-nude photo of herself on social media. The thinking was: If you want to shut down rumors, you’ve really got to grab people’s attention.
Because a reality show is nothing special, I don’t understand why she didn’t just offer a simple: NO, we are not. I don’t see the need for Hurley to draw attention to herself in such a tacky manner. Her IMDb.com profiles show that she has had steady work the last few years.
The same day, singer Madonna tried to steam up social media by posting a series of revealing photos of herself dressed in a strappy bra, lace underwear, and a motorcycle cap.
I found Madonna to be gross in her glory days in the early 1980s. Now that she’s 62, I feel my stomach churning when I see images of her. She should have realized that her sex appeal had long since faded when she made singer Drake wince when she tried to rub up against him in a seductive way.
I don’t think there will ever be a moment of self-reflection for Madonna. She will go to her grave thinking that she is still a hot number.
A couple of weeks ago, rapper Lil Nas X set off alarm bells in Christian circles by announcing the release of a shoe that would honor the devil.
Based on a Nike Air Max 97, the “Satan Shoes” are about as devilish as a pair of sneakers can get. Aside from the all-black uppers, you’ll find an Air unit filled with 60cc of ink and one drop of real human blood. The dark theme doesn’t stop there, as these limited to 666 sneakers (how very apt) are individually numbered in red on the lateral rear counter, while “Luke 10:18” graces the lateral-side front quarter also in a satanic red font. Note: 10:18 is the passage in which Luke says, “I Saw Satan Fall Like Lightning From Heaven.”
Nike has distanced itself from the design and told CNN, “We do not have a relationship with Lil Nas or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes, and we do not endorse them.” Nike is suing the art collective behind the “Satan Shoes” for trademark infringement.
Religious figures in the US have criticized Lil Nas X for the shoes, including Donald Trump’s pastor Mark Burns, who tweeted, “These #SatanShoes by #Nike & #LilNasX with 666 and a drop of human blood in the sole is a reason why we Christians must be prayed up ready to battle in the spirit with the Voice of the Holy Spirit.”
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem added her voice to the criticism, saying, “Our kids are being told that this kind of product is not only okay, it’s ‘exclusive.’ But do you know what’s more exclusive? Their God-given eternal soul. We are in a fight for the soul of our nation. We need to fight hard. And we need to fight smart. We have to win.”
The shoes went on sale online via a “drop,” and just days after Lil Nas X premiered the video for his track “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The price of the shoes is $1,018.
Lil Nas X describes himself as an “unapologetically gay” rapper, which surprised me for a music genre that was once all heterosexual. I looked up the video for Montero (Call Me By Your Name), and it was the most satanic thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It beats out Katy Perry’s occultic “Dark Horse” Witch ritual performed at the 2014 Grammy awards.
In the latter part of the video, Lil Nas X descends down a stripper pole to the pit of hell and gives Satan an extremely graphic lap dance. He then snaps the devil’s neck, puts on the devil’s horns, and his eye starts to glow with demonic power.
I doubt I’m going to have to wait another seven years to say I witnessed something more satanic than the Lil Nas X video. The next topper will likely be Satan making a live performance by indwelling the Antichrist.
“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12).
Daily Jot: Vaccine gaslighting Part II - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The government and corporate media are employing tactics to force you into complying with the COVID 19 vaccine. The federal government says there will be no vaccine passport. But the caveat is that the private sector will do the government’s dirty work for it. The government cannot easily trample your Constitutional rights to privacy, which is what a vaccine passport does, but the private sector has a lot more leeway in removing your civil rights. It is what Alexis de Tocqueville defined in 1840 in his book Democracy in America: soft tyranny covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules where the will of man is constantly restrained, stupefying a people.
Case in point was the April 9 news conference by Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St Vincent, a Caribbean island evacuating because of a volcanic eruption. Gonsalves told reporters that only COVID vaccinated people would be evacuated. He told reporters, “The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship…Those that are vaccinated, [the chief medical officer] can get them going on the vessel. Those who are not yet vaccinated but who would be vaccinated, you wouldn’t send them immediately after vaccination,” due to possible side effects like “wooziness in the head, you know how that is.” Yes, we know how it is, and we see how it can be.
Another example is an acquaintance from Ghana living in America who went to visit Ghana last week. He was asked if there was a vaccination passport. He said, “no nothing like that at all.” Then he went on to describe that all he had to do was just show proof of vaccination and a negative test, and upon arrival in Ghana have another negative test to enter the country. Without knowing it, he experienced a vaccine passport. There are many examples of friends, neighbors and family members who are refusing to associate with those not vaccinated. This type of peer pressure is also a form of tyranny. People are being ostracized and categorized for not complying with this “voluntary” mandate. Employers are putting extreme pressure on employees and customers to “voluntarily” take the vaccine. Corporations are now making the rules,
In order to know who is vaccinated, you carry papers or some sort of identification certifying your vaccination. The corporations and authorities know who you are and whether you are complying. Your entry to certain places depends on getting the vaccine. Everyone should make an informed decision whether to be COVID vaccinated, but you should also be informed of the freedom-curtailing impact of this entire phenomena, the soft tyranny. Vaccine or no, Americans should not be gaslighted into accepting this systemic violation of their civil rights. Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” That yoke, in this case, is a principality of darkness preying on your spiritual and physical life.
Part III examines the repeat of history and what can happen with this form of tyranny.
Daily Devotion: When He Leads Us Through - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. —Exodus 14:14
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/when-he-leads-us-through/ - Listen
There was no way the Israelites could get across the Red Sea. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the Egyptian army was in hot pursuit.
The people got so upset that they turned to Moses and said, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt?” (Exodus 14:11 NLT).
You know the rest of the story. The Lord caused the waters of the Red Sea to part, and the Israelites crossed through on dry ground. Then those same waters closed on the pursuing Egyptian army.
God didn’t keep the Israelites from the trial, but He kept them through it.
The same is true of the three courageous teenagers Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Nebuchadnezzar had them thrown into a fiery furnace because they wouldn’t worship a false god.
Of course, God could have delivered them from the furnace altogether. Instead, He allowed them to be thrown into the furnace. But when the king looked in, he said, “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!” (Daniel 3:25 NLT).
Again, we see that the Lord kept them through the trial but not necessarily from it.
But what about when an accident or a tragedy happens in the life of a child of God? Where’s the keeping power of God then? In asking a question like that, we’re assuming that we somehow have the inherent right to live long, easy lives and die peacefully in our sleep one day.
The Bible says that our “future is in [His] hands” (Psalm 31:15 NLT). This means that the Lord will walk with us through life, no matter what we’re facing. We’ll never be alone.

WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT?
One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support.

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey
