Quantum Computing And AI: Witnessing End-time Technologies Fall Into Place – By David Bowen - https://harbingersdaily.com/quantum-computing-and-ai-witnessing-end-time-technologies-fall-into-place/
Have you ever stopped to think how much life has changed for the everyday consumer since 1977, when the personal computer industry officially began?
Over the last forty-six years, computer technology has been embraced by the average user, from desktops to laptops to tablets to smartphones. Most of us have some understanding of computing terms such as CPU (central processing unit) or RAM (random-access memory) or read-only memory (ROM) such as CD and DVD. But many people just want to know enough to use the technology they have to perform the tasks they want to accomplish. With that minimal knowledge, one can successfully shop online, book travel, bank, and schedule medical appointments.
Frankly, technology can be intimidating for some, while others have an insatiable appetite to stay on the cutting edge. For example, while some of us are still trying to understand the concept of holograms, there are nightly sold-out shows in England to watch ABBA perform a musical show — all in hologram!
In recent months, ChatGPT has become the technological buzzword. Some people are unsure how it is used, but a recent church service in Germany was written entirely by ChatGPT and spoken via avatars. Technophiles now tell us that digital IDs and digital currencies are coming soon, but these technologies may pose grave threats to freedom when they are implemented. Soon, we may not be allowed to enter a grocery store until we have downloaded their app. Already, young people have fully embraced the idea of shopping and paying with the wave of their palm (in such places as Whole Foods and Amazon). Technology is already deeply woven into our daily lives, while amazing new technologies are constantly being developed and tested.
What is Coming Next?
The next advancement is called quantum computing — an exponential leap in computer capability. The military, analytic, scientific, and “artificial intelligence” potential of this advance is expected to be virtually unlimited.
The business world is already at the “early adopters’ stage” regarding quantum computing. Early adopters believe they cannot become complacent by relying on existing technology. Instead, they must constantly create new value; through more and more advanced technology. IBM, Google, and Microsoft are the leading business entities developing quantum computing. According to Investor’s Business Daily, Google has already spun off SandboxAQ, a new entity specifically designed to expand the use of quantum computing further.
What is Quantum Computing?
This technology may be mind-boggling for the average user, so let’s try to simplify what this is. Classical computing uses a binary code to process data: a 0 or 1. There are no other coding options. Quantum computing does not use bits; it uses qubits, which in layman’s terms, can be fractions of 0 or 1, which is impossible with current technology.
The virtually limitless subdivision of qubit data allows a quantum computer to exponentially accelerate calculations. Packed with infinitesimally small microprocessors, it can easily process over 5 billion calculations per second — 3 million times faster than classic computing. The chief analyst at Hyperion Research estimates that tasks that currently take 25 hours will soon be completed in two minutes with quantum computing.
With its blistering computation speed, quantum computing will soon be used to revolutionize the military, logistics, pharma, life science, and finance. All of these are already aggressively investing in quantum computing. For example, Moderna partnered with IBM to use quantum computing to advance the mRNA technology used to develop vaccines. Nvidia is working with Israel-based quantum machines to run algorithms used in quantum physics on supercomputers built with AI chips.
In summary, quantum computing solves problems deemed too complex for today’s classical computers. It is so advanced that some question if it will ever be available or affordable on a personal level, but the same was said of traditional computing 50 years ago.
Cyber security risks are expected to skyrocket. Currently, the most widely used security protocol in cybersecurity is RSA, a public crypto-technology released in 1977 and named after its developers (Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman). In layman’s terms, that is a string of characters in an algorithm that pairs a public and private number to encrypt and decrypt data. This is why you add your personal password to keep your data safe. Unfortunately, computer experts expect quantum computing to make RSA protection obsolete.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is currently developing methods to minimize potential cybersecurity risks. NIST expects to release post-quantum cryptography standards by 2024 — a vital measure to protect US assets as adversarial nations like China attempt to gain the upper hand with their own quantum computer technology.
The Difference Between AI and QC
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is modeled and designed after the human brain. AI developers claim that this revolutionary new technology has the capability to learn and reason. The creators of AI have modeled their neural network after the human brain. However, artificial neural networks will never fully replicate what was designed by the Supreme Creator, Almighty God.
Recently, Popular Mechanics explained that AI has suddenly evolved to achieve the “theory of mind.” In January 2022, AI had the analytical and learning prowess of a seven-year-old, but by November 2022, AI had grown to have the intuitive skills of a nine-year old. In eleven months, AI increased in knowledge and its ability to learn. By mid-2023, this research claims that AI now has the intellectual ability of a full-grown adult. Mo Gawdat, a former chief business officer for Google, estimates ChatGPT now has an IQ of 155. This intellectual growth challenges developers of AI, who confirm that AI can scan and learn the ENTIRE Internet. AI computer networks are constantly browsing the Internet and growing in knowledge.
What Lies Ahead
The combination of AI and quantum computing is a growing concern of many developers involved with this super technology. The Financial Times explains:
Julie Love, product leader for quantum computing at Microsoft who holds a Ph.D. in quantum physics, warned, “You will not own quantum computing; it will own you.”
Setting Up the Antichrist System
On its website, the World Economic Forum proclaims they “have established the Quantum Computing Network, which facilitates collaboration with companies like Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft, as well as academic institutions and national governments… to prepare society more broadly for the significance of the transition.” Transition indeed.
What quantum computing can do is unlike anything we have seen to date. Not only will this technology have the ability to control every aspect of life, business, finance, medicine, government, etc., but it will also be able to do this with such precision and speed that every person on earth could be placed into a one-world system. This technology will virtually force the world into a one-world financial system, a one-world government, and eventually a one-world religion. This super technology will cause the world’s systems to merge into one unified and computerized way of life. Choices will be eliminated. Freedom will be severely limited. Control will be delivered into the hands of the one who oversees this worldwide interconnecting network.
Scott Townsend of I Am a Watchman Ministries describes how quantum computers combined with AI will be used to establish the Mark of the Beast system. This technology will allow the Antichrist to seemingly replicate the attributes of God during the Tribulation. Only God is omnipotent (all-powerful) (Genesis 1), omniscient (all-knowing) (1 John 3:20, Matthew 10:29-30), and omnipresent (present everywhere) (Psalm 139:7-9), but technology will allow Satan’s Man of Lawlessness to deceive the world. Like the Father of Lies, those technology-enabled lies will cease when Jesus returns in glory.
Scripture warns that mankind will succumb to a one-world government. Quantum computing and AI are the technologies that will make it possible. Understanding the anticipated threat is one thing, but witnessing end-time technologies and events fall into place before our eyes is amazing.
Time is very short. Tell everyone you know about the love Jesus has for them… before it is too late.
Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus!
Prophetic Partners - The Russian/Turkey Alliance Deepens - by Burak Bekdil - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=6406
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is trying to get the most from Turkey's theoretical Western allies while in reality allying with Russian President Vladimir Putin - like sort of a Muslim Fidel Castro.
In an article published last month, this author suggested:
"Once again, Western optimists are misreading Erdoğan, that he is 'rekindling fraught relations with the West.' He just needs Western money, a few pats on the shoulder and legitimacy for his sultanship."
The New York Times, in an editorial, woke up and agreed:
"Just two months ago, many in the West thought they had seen indications that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey was shifting away from what they saw as his overly chummy relationship with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia.
"Turkey allowed a group of celebrated Ukrainian fighters to return to the battlefield, prompting Russia to accuse it of violating an agreement. And Mr. Erdoğan finally dropped his resistance to allowing Sweden to join NATO, strengthening the military alliance aimed at countering Russia.
"But any sense of a significant change in Mr. Erdoğan's balancing act between Russia and the West appeared to evaporate on Monday, when he and Mr. Putin stood side by side after a meeting in the Russian resort town of Sochi and spoke of expanding cooperation."
Back in July, the West wanted to maintain its comfortable sleep over bitter facts when Erdoğan unexpectedly green-lit Sweden's bid to join NATO. This move provoked a degree of celebration and praise that individual leaders rarely get at a summit. U.S. President Joe Biden applauded Erdoğan's "courage, leadership, and diplomacy." "This is a historic day," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said. Erdoğan could not have been read more mistakenly.
At the Sochi summit on September 4, Erdoğan, speaking as if he were Putin's spokesman, suggested that "Ukraine should soften its position on the grain corridor deal," referring to the UN-brokered Black Sea Grain Corridor Agreement, from which Russia had withdrawn on July 17. Having taken orders from the boss, Erdoğan returned home with an agenda to convince Western parties to the deal on whatever terms Moscow insists should be in any new agreement.
Erdoğan needs Western money to prevent Turkey's economic suicide. He needs U.S.-made fighter jets to maintain a delicate power balance over the Aegean skies. He needs Western pats on the shoulder to win legitimacy for his undemocratic one-man rule. But he wants all of these cookies without having to give up Russia. Over the past years, Erdoğan has made Turkey addicted to Russia, like a junkie to a dealer.
Russia is building -- and will own -- Turkey's first nuclear power plant in Akkuyu on the Mediterranean coast. In Sochi, Erdoğan and Putin agreed to build a second Russian nuclear power plant, planned for Sinop on the Black Sea coast.
In 2022, Russian exports to Turkey reached $60 billion, making the country the biggest source of Turkey's imports. In 2021, Russia ranked second after China, with exports worth $29 billion to Turkey. Turkey's crude oil imports from Russia rose from 10 million tons in 2021 to 19 million tons in 2022.
This means Russia supplied 41% of Turkey's total oil imports in 2022. Turkey's energy watchdog said that in May-June of 2023, Russia's share of oil imports reached 50%. Also in 2022, Russia also supplied 39% of Turkey's natural gas. Russia is Turkey's top energy supplier.
Five million Russian tourists visited Turkey in 2022. The head of Turkish construction companies' union, Erdal Eren, said that Turkish companies hold $18 billion to $20 billion in their Russian construction portfolio.
Against this backdrop, it was appalling to hear an EU ambassador in Ankara tell me that he was appalled that Erdoğan said that a) he trusts Russia as much as he trusts the West, and that b) Ankara could "part ways" with the European Union if necessary. Erdogan's ultranationalist ally, Devlet Bahçeli, immediately endorsed the cheap bluff: "We're done with the EU."
That is the way Erdoğan does horse trading. Sadly, each time, the gullible West gets cheated.
Erdoğan's Turkey is one of the countries continually breaking Western sanctions on Russia. Earlier in September, the US State Department imposed sanctions on five Turkish shipping and trade companies for repairing Russian Defense Ministry vessels, transporting Russian military goods, and helping Russia to evade sanctions.
From the editor:
So why should you care that Vladimir Putin has been recently meeting with both Iranian and Turkish leaders?
You should care because more than 2,600 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel warned of a future time when a vast coalition of nations will attack Israel. The leader of this coalition is a man known as Gog, the ruler of Magog (Ezekiel 38:1). This is why the invading force is known as the Gog of Magog coalition.
According to Ezekiel this alliance will send an overwhelming force to invade Israel in the last days. And today, for the first time in human history, we see this alliance forming.
The Invading Nations
Which nations does Ezekiel describe? He identifies the invading nations as "Magog, Rosh, Meschech, Tubal, Persia, Cush, Put, Gomer, and Beth-togarmah" (Ezekiel 38:1-6). If you look on a 2023 map of the globe, you won't find any of these nations. So how can I say this alliance is forming?
Because these are the ancient biblical names of these nations, and while their names have changed over the years, we can still locate them on a map today. Below is a list of each nation, followed by its modern day name:
Rosh = Russia
Magog = Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan
Persia = Iran
Cush = Sudan
Put = Libya
Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, and Beth-togarmah = Turkey
It's been centuries since Ezekiel first recorded these prophecies. Yet, this alliance has never existed. It certainly hasn't invaded Israel. But now? Today, we see it coming closer each day.

End-times Enlightenment – Terry James - https://terryjamesprophecyline.com/2023/10/01/end-times-enlightenment/
The prophet Daniel would have been amazed at what we see happening all around us today. His question must have burned in the deepest part of his spirit while he appealed to the messenger who had just spoken about the end of all things:
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? (Daniel 12:7–8)
Daniel, after being given so much to take in from the messenger-angel from Heaven, must have been bursting with desire to know the outcome of humanity’s plight. He must have been especially wanting to know the details of what would become of his own people, Israel. The angel was permitted only to say the following in answer to the great, old prophet’s question:
Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Daniel 12:9–10)
I believe this generation is in the time the angel was speaking of in telling Daniel that the “wise shall understand.” We who “watch,” according to Jesus’ commandment (Mark 13: 37) are literally deluged with signal after signal of the lateness of the prophetic hour. We continually present from the hourly news accounts all of the signs Jesus told us to watch for.
We certainly can identify those the angel spoke about with the words, “the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand.” That group is easily identifiable just within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) meetings last week. And we can also be identified today with the angel’s words, “but the wise shall understand.”
The following explanation, I hope, will make the distinction between the wicked and the wise crystal clear, and will help determine whether we are the generation the angel said will be here when that end-times book is opened.
This past week, I was told that my friend Tom Cote (“Watchman River Tom”), a first-rate biblical prophecy observer, had what he called one of the best moments of his life. He said that many fellow prophecy watchers who read these columns and view podcasts were apparently experiencing the same amazing thing. He said he saw you in action on the UN’s live video feed on YouTube.
That forum has almost three million subscribers. Tom reported that the video of the SDG summit had a lot of red lights. Then something happened in the accompanying chat that amazed. Tom reported that it was, to his way of thinking, like a live wall of Jesus that manifested. It was incredible, he said.
The live chat was full of born-again believers—the Body of Christ. Tom said he was watching 2 Thessalonians 2:7–8—“He who now restrains”—in action: He felt as if he were watching the Restrainer restrain.
He reported that the comments were “Jesus is King”; “We love Jesus”; “When they say peace and safety sudden destruction comes”; and “Jesus has won the victory.”
It was—of all things—a sea of “Jesus” comments on a forum designed for the New World Order minions! He said that about 98 percent of the comments were about Jesus. He reported that occasionally someone obviously a part of the UN Great Reset agglomeration would come on and say things like, “What is going on here?” Again, Tom says it was an incredible moment.
There was confusion among the Ephesians 6:12 minions (my comment, not his).
There are indeed incredible things happening—both in regard to the stage being set for prophecy to be fulfilled and amongst those who yearn for our Lord’s call in the Rapture.
I believe with all within my spirit that those who truly are watching, according to Mark 13:37, Luke 21:28, Titus 2:13, and other scriptural instructions, can see more clearly how near we are to that call. Each moment-by-moment unveiling of the issues and events speaks into our spiritual hearts: “Your Redeemer is drawing near.”
It is more than obvious that those who “watch” are receiving end-times enlightenment. The Holy Spirit is, I believe, giving the heavenly heads-up that Jesus is about to step out on the clouds of glory and say, as He said to John, “Come up here!” (Revelation 4: 1).
You don’t want to miss that thrilling command by the Lord of all Creation, who died as the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world to save us from the sin into which we were born so that you and I could live eternally in the presence of God.
Here is how to go to the Savior when He calls in that great event we know as the Rapture:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
Be Not Yoked! - Nathele Graham - firstname.lastname@example.org
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14.
We all know what a yoke is. It’s used to bind animals together so they will work as a team to accomplish a purpose. We’ve all seen pictures of a pair of oxen yoked together to plow a field or pull a wagon. When the team is well matched, they work together without a problem, but sometimes one of the team isn’t willing to work with the other. The animal will pull away or try to run ahead. This makes it difficult to plow a straight line or to comfortably travel down a road. It’s not wise to unequally yoke a Clydesdale horse together with a Shetland pony. That just isn’t a good match.
In life, we all become yoked to something, whether it be a job, marriage, or friendships. In making choices of who, or what, to be yoked to, Christians need to make choices based on Scripture. We have freedom in Christ, but that isn’t a license to sin. If you join yourself to people who don’t know Jesus, even if they claim to be Christian, then you are unequally yoked and will be led along the path of the world and the burden of sin is great. Jesus told His disciples of the tough times they would face, but He also gave them hope. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. All who have yoked themselves to Jesus have this same promise. So be of good cheer!
Sin is a yoke that is heavy. It may start out as “harmless fun” and not seem burdensome. Time passes and white lies become bigger and one or two glasses wine become martinis and whiskey until the bar closes. Having a glass of wine isn’t a sin, but drunkenness is. The yoke becomes heavier and heavier. One sin will lead to another and the friends you have yoked yourself to will pull you away from the path you should be following. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
Sin always has consequences. Alcoholism will cause liver damage, sexual encounters other than within the confines of a one man/one woman marriage will bring about disease, lying will cause hurt feelings and trouble. The death caused by sin can be physical (you may be killed in a drunk driving accident) or it can be eternal if you don’t know Jesus. Let’s set up a scenario. You’re happily married and have 2 children. You enjoy spending family time together, and every Sunday you and your family show up to worship God at your neighborhood church. Then, you have to stay late at work one night in order to finish a big project. Your secretary also stays. After you’ve finished your job, you ask if she would like to grab a bite to eat. She agrees and the conversation is interesting, and you enjoy her company very much. You go home and your wife has kept your dinner warm for you. You tell your wife that you and a co-worker went to dinner after work. That isn’t a lie, but it is misleading. The next week, you have to work late again and the same scenario plays out. Pretty soon, you are dining with your secretary even though you don’t need to work. The lies you tell your wife are growing. That yoke of sin is getting heavy. Then the kids have a t-ball game, but you’ve made plans with your secretary. That yoke is getting very heavy. You begin enjoying more than dinner with her, but you aren’t the only one she’s seeing, and you get a sexually transmitted disease. What do you tell your wife? More lies? Your marriage breaks up, and you now only see your children every other weekend. All because you have yoked yourself with a very heavy burden of sin and bad company. The good news is that Jesus is very forgiving. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9.
Confessing your sin doesn’t mean to run to a priest. We only need to confess our sins to Jesus and truly ask Him to forgive. He will. You must confess to Jesus and repent of your sin. Turn away from it. He will break the yoke that sin has forged. Faith in Jesus isn’t a “get out of jail free” card, like in Monopoly. Sin comes with a price, and there will be consequences in life, but Jesus paid the price of our transgressions and eternal life is still there for the true believer. Don’t treat that gift of salvation lightly.
God doesn’t want us to yoke ourselves to the powers of evil, and has tried since He created Adam to keep us away from evil. We are surrounded by supernatural powers, both the ones of God and the evil powers of darkness. Because God knows how hateful the powers of darkness are, He has warned us not to yoke ourselves with that evil. It’s impossible to live in this world and be totally isolated from the evil that spills into it, but we choose if we want to be a part of the evil or to follow Jesus. Movies and music are big influences on most people in the world, so choose wisely what you fill your mind with. The subject matter of many movies and songs are blatantly full of non-Christian ideas of violence, drugs, drunkenness, unbridled sex, and pure evil. Turn away from the evil and draw closer to God. “But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.” Psalm 73:28. Don’t yoke yourself to the world, but draw nearer to God each day.
When the Israelites were captive in Egypt, there was a god for everything, and the one true God’s chosen people were influenced by the evil. God called them out of Egypt and warned them to stay away from the gods they would encounter. These demon gods were worshipped by the inhabitants of the land which God promised to Abraham. “I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen, and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.” Leviticus 26:13.
God demonstrated His power to the Israelites on many occasions, but throughout history, they chose to yoke with the evil rather than God Almighty. They should have felt that a heavy yoke had fallen away when the Egyptian bondage was over, and they should have turned away from the gods which were worshipped there. “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” Deuteronomy 18:9-12.
God will never completely turn His back on Israel, but it’s time for them to turn back to Him. Christians, we need to pay attention to the full counsel of God’s word and turn away from these things too.
The prophets of old spoke of the coming Messiah and Isaiah spoke quite a bit about Him. The Northern Kingdom of Israel fell to the Syrians. God allowed this fall because they had yoked themselves to the evil worship of idols and demonic gods promoted by King Ahab and Jezebel. The Southern Kingdom of Judah would also fall. In Isaiah chapter 8, we read prophecy about Assyria invading and capturing Judah. It was their disobedience to God’s law that caused them to be taken captive. God has never forsaken Israel, and He promised them hope. “The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined…For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.” Isaiah 9:1 & 4.
God would provide the only way of redemption for Israel, and the entire world. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6. This is one of many prophecies about Jesus. The Jewish people were chosen to bring Christ into the world. Thank God He never goes back on His word.
Jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophecies during His first coming. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Isaiah 10:27. Jesus broke the yoke of sin for anyone who turns to Him in faith. When we turn to Jesus, we need to turn away from the world. We need to yoke ourselves to Jesus rather than being yoked to the evils of the world which is under the yoke of Satan. Jesus spoke of how it was easier to follow His path instead of yoking to the world. “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30.
Brothers and sisters, we have come once again to October and Halloween is upon us. How do you plan to celebrate? Will you dress your children in costumes that glorify evil? Witches, ghosts, or some other horror figure. Wouldn’t it be better not to yoke yourself or your children with the powers of darkness, but rather remember Martin Luther? He is the man who broke the yoke of the Catholic Church for many people and sparked the Protestant revolution. There were many things he found in error with Catholicism, and he taught the Biblical truth of grace through faith and not works. He had some unbiblical beliefs, such as his anti-Jewish views and soul sleep, which are not God’s views.
Nevertheless, on October 31, 1517, he is said to have nailed the Ninety-five Theses to the door of the All-Saints Church in Wittenberg. Martain Luther took a stand and chose to be yoked to Christ instead of following the ways of the world. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1. Christ alone is our High Priest and we should only bow our knees to Him.
Be diligent to study Scripture so that you will know God’s word and be better able to decide with what or whom you will yoke yourself. A wise person only yokes with Christ.
God bless you all,

Daily Jot: Straight, but uncomfortable, talk - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The aftermath of a handful of Republicans and all the Democrats in the US House of Representatives removing Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in a historical vote is one of confusion. Democrats are being Democrats. They will vote for most anything that disrupts the Republicans. And Republicans are being Republicans, unable to find unity on much of anything. This is the case where eight congressmen changed the course of history. It should be an object lesson to all that if you believe in what you are doing and take a stand, even against seemingly insurmountable odds, you may be rewarded with success. Hopefully, the ousting of McCarthy will wake up Republicans and spur them to be a true opposition party.
For decades, Americans have seen Republicans in Congress talk a conservative, middle America game. They make great proclamations about sanctity of life, traditional marriage, fiscal responsibility, socialist healthcare, bodily autonomy, energy independence, freedom of speech, freedom of self-defense, religious freedom, voting integrity, border security, and the list goes on and on. But even when in the majority, Republicans have been unable to slow the Democrat juggernaut on the bulk of these issues. It’s gotten so bad that the current Democratic Administration openly supports public school-sanctioned sexual grooming of our kids and redistributing multi-billions of our tax money to frivolous Democrat causes like climate change, Ukraine, and electric cars.
Republicans in Congress talk a good game. They tell us what we want to hear. They wrap their words in God and country and bundle them in the flag. We go out and vote, put them in office and then they fold like lawn chairs in a summer breeze. Folks, we didn’t get to record debt, record inflation, high gas prices, high food prices, racial disruption, COVID lockdowns, our religious rights and Constitutional rights being diminished to the point of persecution just by Democrat Marxist lunacy. We got there, in a large part, by Republican ineptitude in talking a good game, but not playing to win. Essentially, big hat, no cattle. For too long, Republicans have been complacent because they know God-fearing conservatives won’t vote for the socialist party.
Just look at the judicial system. Democrats are misusing the law to persecute their opposition, yet Republicans sit around and wring their hands rather than stand against this coup of Marxist hegemony. Feckless doesn’t describe what we have witnessed. What eight congressmen did to oust McCarthy shook things up. Maybe it got these no-doer’s attention. We are sailing perilous seas. It’s going to take bold action to right the good ship America. My prayer is that in the days and months ahead that Republicans will actually unify and match their deeds with their words. For us peasants in the hinterland with a vote in our hand, may we discern and hold accountability. As Christ said in Matthew 7:19-20, “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Time to build the fire.
Daily Devotion: Signs of Christ’s Return - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
And everyone will hate you because you are my followers —Luke 21:17

We know from church history that the church has undergone relentless persecution.
All the apostles, except for one, died the death of a martyr. John was banished to the island of Patmos, where he wrote the Book of Revelation. Church tradition suggests that John’s persecutors tried to boil him in oil, but they didn’t succeed. So they banished him instead.
The church went through horrible times of persecution. From the first century to 314, the martyr period of church history, thousands of courageous Christians laid down their lives for the sake of the gospel.
Ten great waves of persecution took place under the various Caesars, who sought to eradicate the Christian faith from the earth. But instead of destroying Christianity, they only strengthened it in many ways. The gospel is alive and well, and Jesus Christ is still working powerfully.
God allowed this persecution, and He will allow persecution. In fact, one of the signs of the last days will be increased persecution. And it will intensify during the tribulation period.
Today there are courageous people around the world standing up for their faith. Yet in the United States, we will complain if someone makes fun of us for reading the Bible. Let’s thank God for the freedom that we have to do this. And let’s thank Him for the freedom that we have to preach the gospel.
As Christians, we will face persecution. If you are a godly person, then you will be persecuted. The Bible says, “Everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12 NLT).
Maybe God has allowed persecution in your life. It might be someone at work who always has hard questions for you or a neighbor who gives you a hard time for your faith in Jesus. Or maybe it’s a family member who doesn’t believe. It could be that you are doing something right.
God will allow persecution in the life of the believer. Not only is persecution confirmation that we are children of God, but it also causes us to cling tighter to Jesus and remember this world is not our home.
Jesus told His disciples, “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you” (John 15:18–19 NLT).
As signs of the imminent return of Jesus continue to unfold, it should keep us on our toes spiritually. Jesus said, “So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!” (Luke 21:28 NLT).
We are stewards over our lives, our time, and our resources. And one day we will be held accountable for it. Let’s not waste our time. Let’s not go on with business as usual. Instead, let’s allow this teaching of the Lord’s return to motivate us to live godly lives.

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
