Bible Prophecy: Science Fact or Science Fiction? - Part II – Arnold Martin - https://www.rev310.net/post/bible-prophecy-science-fact-or-science-fiction-1
We then see that the second beast has power to give life to the image of the beast so that it, the image, not only speaks but causes all who do not worship it, the image of the beast, to be killed. Did you get that? It was the image of the beast that caused all who did not worship him, not just worshipping the 1st beast but worshipping the image of the beast to be killed. Take printing an entire perfect body with bionic parts and uploading a human mind and adding an AI chip in the brain and you have a superman who will be connected to the internet and will likely hack and control all weapons and vital services around the world thereby controlling the whole world.
The internet of things has already been set up for him and all he has to do is hack into it and take control holding the world hostage, that’s singularity. Who will be the one who gets uploaded, will it be Elon Musk who has just this year taken the lead as the richest man in the world, or maybe Jeff Bezos 2nd place or Bill Gates in 4th place or Mark Zuckerberg 5th place or even George Soros? He then causes all to take the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell. This has to be a digital currency as he cannot control cash. With blockchain technology, every monetary unit can be tracked and backtracked from when it is created until forever forward. There will be no financial transaction beyond his control. 5G or maybe 6G or quantum teleportation will play a part in this as 4G just doesn’t have the oomph to handle all the transactions as well as GPS etc. Anyone who does not take the mark will likely be hunted down and killed, at the very least, they will not be able to participate in society or rent, buy food, clothing, supplies, medicine, etc. Chapter 14 of Revelation tells us what happens to those who do take the mark or number of his name, the smoke of their torment will ascend up forever and ever and they will have no rest day nor night in the lake of fire.
China has been rising in power in the last few decades and has excelled in hacking and stealing information, their goal is clearly to rule the world. They also have been working on creating super soldiers using CRISPER technology, https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/china-has-done-human-testing-create-biologically-enhanced-super-soldiers-n1249914, but they don’t show up in Bible prophecy until just prior to the battle of Armageddon in the book of Revelation. Perhaps China will be the country that comes up with the prophesied 200-million-man army of robots and super soldiers. Revelation 16:12-14,16; “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” The kings of the east is China and perhaps India and North Korea.
It appears that China has come to battle against the Antichrist but Jesus comes in the air they all turn on Him and He destroys them with the sword of His mouth at the end of the tribulation. Revelation 17:12-14; “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called and chosen, and faithful.” The ten kings are the revived Roman Empire. Revelation 19:14,15; “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
It’s no wonder that Daniel was told to seal the book until the time of the end, no one stood a chance of understanding it until the fourth industrial revolution. Everything is just about in place for all this to take place. We are the generation that will see these things happen as indicated by Jesus in Matthew 24:32-34. These things are in our future very soon. Russia, Iran, and Turkey are in alignment for the 1st time in history and positioned in Syria just north of the mountains of Israel where God will destroy them and their economies are strapped, they need Israel’s wealth. Also, we have had one million and three hundred thousand abortions worldwide in the 1st 11 days of 2021. Jesus said; “Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.” Luke 23:28-30. Can there be any doubt as to the time frame indicated here? Never before has the barren, the wombs that never bare and the paps which never gave suck been called blessed as they are today with all the abortions and the vaccines causing sterility in women on purpose by the global elite with their depopulation agenda.
To top it off, the last sentence here in Luke is identical to the book of Revelation where He is pouring out His wrath, Revelation 6:16, which He did not reveal to John until 63 years after His quote in the book of Luke.
The history of the church is recorded in order from the days of John until today in Chapters 2 &3 of Revelation, these are the things that are when Christ told John to record the things that he saw and the things that are and the things that are to come. The things that John saw was Christ in all His glory, the things that are is the 7 churches, the things that are to come is the 7-year tribulation. The church is not specifically mentioned after chapter three in the book of Revelation. Although those churches ceased to exist about a thousand years ago they still exist as symbolic because two of them are threatened to go into the tribulation, one is promised to be kept from the tribulation, and the last church Christ is standing outside the church.
God sees the end and has declared it so that when we see these things happening, we will know that He is Lord therefore, Satan studies God’s word in order to know what is coming and develop a battle plan. Throughout history, Satan tried to corrupt or destroy the bloodline through which the promised Messiah would come to stop Him from coming. Before the flood, the fallen angels corrupted the DNA of mankind but Noah was perfect in his generations (DNA). Genesis 6:4,9. Then all through the old testament, he tried to destroy the Hebrews. Having failed to stop the Messiah coming he still tries to destroy all the Hebrews to stop Christ from returning as Christ said to the Jews; “Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” Matthew 23:39. If there are no Jews to say this, then Christ would be a liar if He returned.
Satan knew in the late 1800s that his time was short when he saw the Jews returning to Israel and the mountains of Israel responded to the Jews, the rains began, the Jews drained the swamps and irrigated the deserts turning the land into a thriving country for the first time in 1800 years. Ezekiel 36:8. He then initiated the world wars to eliminate the Jews, but God took what was meant for bad and turned it for good. God had deliberately kept Israel barren but the Ottoman Empire ruled over it not allowing the Jews to return. God used world war I to remove the power of the Ottoman Empire in order to bring back His people. He used world war II with six million Jews slaughtered to convince the world that the Jewish people needed a homeland. Satan tries to make God a liar but his efforts end up fulfilling God’s prophecies.
Having failed in his attempts to wipe out the Jewish race in the wars, Satan began to put his minions in positions of power to bring in his NWO, a global reset. Notice the progression.
In America, Satan managed to infiltrate the Democrat party 1st but has made great headway into the republican party. He has all but taken over the schools, colleges, media, judges, state governments, CEOs of large influential corporations and churches with his socialist (communist) agenda. At first, he stayed in the shadows while America slept but today, he has so many placed in authority he is bold in proclaiming his agenda.
Climate change and covid-19 were created with many purposes among which is to destroy the economy and power of America, bring in their one-world government, a digital currency, the Antichrist, and the mark of the beast. That is just a summary as the details reveal that this one-world government is a wild beast on steroids, the worse time in the history of the world. Matthew 24:21.

Ten Reasons Nisan 1 Is A Pivotal Date In 2022 – T.W. Tramm - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5200
Here are ten reasons Nisan 1 (April 2) is a pivotal date in 2022:
1. DANIEL'S SEVEN WEEKS
Nisan 1 this year marks the completion of seven Sabbatical weeks since the 1967 restoration of Jerusalem to the Jews. This is significant because Daniel's Weeks Prophecy says Messiah will appear "seven weeks" after Jerusalem is restored:
"From the going forth of the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks (Dan. 9:25).
The only modern restoration of Jerusalem occurred in June 1967 when the Jews took possession of the Holy City for the first time in nearly 2,000 years. Counting seven weeks from the start of the first Sabbatical week following Jerusalem's 1967 restoration (Nisan 1973), we arrive at Nisan 2022.
2. THE FIFTIETH YEAR
Because Nisan 1 marks the completion of seven Sabbatical weeks, it also marks the start of a fiftieth year, a potential Jubilee (Lev. 25:8-10).
It is interesting to note that, because 2022 is a fiftieth year, this year's Pentecost, or fiftieth day, represents a "fiftieth within a fiftieth," a numeric concurrence denoting harvest and the fullness of time that occurs only twice a century.
3. JERUSALEM'S WALL
Nisan 1 this year marks the completion of "seven" and "sixty-two" Sabbatical weeks since Jerusalem's wall was rebuilt by Islamic ruler Suleiman. This is significant because Daniel's Weeks Prophecy mentions specifically the wall surrounding Jerusalem being rebuilt:
"From the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall" (Dan. 9:25).
Suleiman ordered the rebuilding of Jerusalem's wall in 1536-37 AD. Counting "seven" and "sixty-two" weeks from the start of the first Sabbatical week following the order to rebuild (Nisan 1539 AD), we arrive at Nisan 2022.
4. SOLAR ECLIPSE ANNIVERSARY
Nisan 1 this year marks seven years to the day since a total solar eclipse darkened the northernmost tip of the globe, the point where the longitudinal lines intersecting every nation and landmass converge.
Besides occurring on the biblical New Year, the Nisan eclipse coincided with the spring equinox. For perspective, a total solar eclipse occurs on the spring equinox only one other time during the roughly 750-year period spanning 1662 AD-2406 AD. Such an eclipse at the top of the globe, however, is said to happen only once every 100,000 years, making it unprecedented.
According to the Talmud, solar eclipses are a sign for the Gentile world. That the unprecedented Nisan eclipse occurred seven years ago is significant because God is known for giving a seven-year warning prior to bringing judgment (Gen. 7; 41; Josh. 6).
5. THE ELEVENTH WEEK
Nisan 1 this year marks the start of the eleventh Sabbatical week (2022-29) since Israel became a nation in 1948. The number eleven denotes chaos, disorder, and judgment in Scripture, themes associated with the Tribulation period.
The next Sabbatical cycle (2029-36) is the twelfth. The number twelve signifies God's authority and a perfect governmental foundation in Scripture, pointing to the establishment of Jesus' Millennial Kingdom.
6. THE 354th WEEK
Nisan 1 this year marks the start of the 354th Sabbatical week since Daniel's Weeks Prophecy began to be fulfilled when a group of Jews began the journey home to Jerusalem, from Babylon, on the first day of Nisan in 457 BC (Ezra 7:9).
The number 354 is significant for a couple of reasons. First, it is the number of days comprising the lunar year. Since the Moon is symbolic of the Church, or Bride of Christ, it could be said that 354 denotes the fullness of time related to the Bride.
Second, it is interesting to note that . . .
Strong's #354 in the Hebrew concordance is the word ayyal, referring to a stag, or male deer.
Strong's #354 in the Greek concordance is the word analémpsis, referring to a "taking up" into heaven.
That the Hebrew and Greek words related to the number 354 refer to a stag and a taking up to heaven is striking because one of the most profound rapture illustrations in the Bible depicts Jesus as a young stag who comes suddenly to gather up His beloved:
"The voice of my beloved!
Behold, he comes
Leaping upon the mountains,
Skipping upon the hills.
My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Behold, he stands behind our wall;
He is looking through the windows,
Gazing through the lattice.
My beloved spoke, and said to me:
'Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away'" (Song 2:8-10).
While concurrences like the above do not carry the same weight as Scripture, they nonetheless give one pause. In the New Testament the word coincidence is used only once (Luke 10:31). It is translated from a Greek word, synkyria, which is defined as "a confluence that occurs by God's providential arrangement of circumstances."
That is to say, where God is concerned, there are no coincidences.
The following anniversaries are not, as the above, precisely linked to Nisan 1. However, they do occur within days or months of this pivotal date.
7. BETHLEHEM STAR
June 30 this year marks seven years since a once-in-two-millennia appearance of the "Bethlehem-Star," the Jupiter-Venus conjunction that heralded Jesus' first coming.
Could this dazzling and much publicized heavenly alignment have been a seven-year warning pointing to the return of Jesus?
8. BLOOD MOONS
2022 marks seven years since consecutive blood-moon eclipses occurred on the spring and fall harvest festivals, Passover and Tabernacles. Significantly, the Tabernacles eclipse was a "super blood moon," a phenomenon in which the Moon's proximity to Earth causes it to appear particularly large.
According to the Talmud, blood moons are a bad omen for Israel. Could the extra-large blood moon of 2015, visible above Jerusalem, have been the ultimate seven-year warning?
9. LEAFING OF THE FIG-TREE
March 10 this year marks 73 years since the newly planted 'fig tree,' Israel, substantially enlarged its borders by prevailing in the first Arab-Israeli War. That same spring, the fledgling Jewish nation established its first government and was admitted to the UN Organization.
Israel's growth spurt in spring 1949 is noteworthy because Jesus says the generation who sees the still tender fig branch "put forth leaves" will see all the end-times events come to pass (Matt. 24:32, 34).
A typical human lifespan in Scripture is 70-80 years (Ps. 90:10). Counting 80 years from 1949, we arrive at 2029. Subtracting seven years, the presumed length of the Tribulation period, we arrive at 2022.
10. THE SETTING UP OF AN ABOMINATION
2022 marks 1,335 years since the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic shrine dedicated to Allah, was built on the Temple Mount in 687-88 AD. This is significant because in Daniel's final vision of the end times, the setting up of an abomination that causes desolation is an important time-marker:
"From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days" (Dan. 12:11, 12).
In Daniel's prophecies, a day typically represents a year (9:24-27). Counting 1,290 prophetic years from when the daily Temple sacrifice was taken away by Nebuchadnezzar in 586-85 BC, we arrive at 687-88 AD, the year the Dome of the Rock was set up. Counting forward 1,335 years from when the Dome of the Rock was set up, we arrive at 2022.
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
To sum up, the first day of Nisan in 2022 marks, precisely . . .
• The end of "seven weeks" from the modern restoration of Jerusalem.
• The start of the 50th year from the modern restoration of Jerusalem.
• The end of "seven" and "sixty-two" weeks from the rebuilding of Jerusalem's wall by Suleiman.
• The seven-year anniversary of an unprecedented solar eclipse at the top of the globe.
• The start of the eleventh Sabbatical week since Israel became a nation in 1948.
• The start of the 354th Sabbatical week since Daniel's Weeks Prophecy began to be fulfilled in 457 BC.
Anniversaries not precisely linked to Nisan 1, but which occur within days or months of this date, include:
• The seven-year anniversary of the Bethlehem Star conjunction.
• The seven-year anniversary of consecutive blood moons on God's harvest festivals.
• The 73rd anniversary of the 'leafing of the fig tree' in spring 1949.
• The 1,335th anniversary of the setting up of an abomination on the Temple Mount.
With the above in view, it can be said that the year beginning at Nisan marks a calendrical convergence like no other.
The most compelling anniversaries are those related to Daniel 9:25, a verse purposed to convey the time of Jesus' coming by a reckoning of Sabbatical weeks.
It defies coincidence that Daniel's weeks may be counted separately or together and from different orders to rebuild Jerusalem to point to the same year: 2022. This remarkable concurrence is a result of the two orders to rebuild the Holy City (Suleiman and contemporary) being separated by a span of sixty-two weeks.
What's more, the seven-weeks reckoning suggests the year beginning at Nisan is a Jubilee.
Only God knows what events 2022 might bring. However, it is certainly a year ripe with possibility.
NOTES FOR DIGGING FURTHER:
1. The accuracy of our reckoning of Daniel's weeks and potential Jubilee depends on the correctness of the Sabbatical cycle.
2. Current Sabbatical years, according to the accepted Jewish reckoning:
3. More on Sabbatical Years:
4. Because Daniel's weeks refer to the fixed Sabbatical cycle, the count must begin at the start of an actual Sabbatical week.
5. God established Nisan as the first month of the year when Israel became a nation (Ex. 12), Thus, Sabbatical weeks, which are simply groups of seven years, begin at Nisan. The Nisan-reckoning is evident in Scripture where the Lord instructs Israel to begin counting Sabbatical weeks when they enter the Promised Land (Lev. 25:1-4). The Israelites entered the Land in Nisan (Josh. 4:19).
6. Evidence that Jubilee years are reckoned from Nisan is the fact that the jubilee trumpet is sounded in the "seventh month," confirming Nisan to be the first month relative to the Jubilee (Lev. 25:9).
7. A crucial difference between the biblical (Nisan-reckoned) calendar and the Jewish (Tishrei-reckoned) version is that the former has the fiftieth year beginning in spring 2022, whereas the latter has the fiftieth year beginning in fall 2022.
8. Because Pentecost is a fiftieth day observed after a count of seven weeks, it is sometimes called the "little jubilee" (Lev. 23:15, 16; 25:8-10).
9. According to E. W. Bullinger, "the number fifty is the issue of 7 X 7 (72) and points to deliverance and rest following on as the result of the perfect consummation of time." Wherever the number fifty is found in Scripture it is associated with fullness or completion (Num. 4:23; Deut. 22:29; 2 Sam. 15:1; 24:24; 1 Kings 1:5).
10. The fiftieth (Jubilee) year is also the "eighth" year relative to the Sabbatical week. Eight is the number of new beginnings in Scripture.
11. Interesting nine-o'clock concurrence linking Pentecost, the Church, the modern restoration of Jerusalem, and the Jubilee:
• The firstfruits of the wheat harvest are offered up before the Lord in the nine o'clock hour on Pentecost.
• The Holy Spirit was poured out on the Church in the nine o'clock hour on Pentecost.
• The June 7, 1967, recapture of Jerusalem and the Western Wall by Israeli forces occurred in the nine o'clock hour. The soldiers were joined by fifty-year-old Rabbi Shlomo Goren who sounded the shofar and declared the Holy City to be "redeemed" (jubilee themes). A week later, Jerusalem was officially opened to the Israeli public for the first time in nearly 2,000 years--on Pentecost (see notes*).
• In Acts 2, Pentecost (fiftieth day) is said to be "fully come" in the nine o'clock hour, when about 60% of the biblical 24-hour day has elapsed. Similarly, the jubilee (fiftieth year) trumpet is sounded on the tenth day of the seventh month, when about 60% of the biblical year has elapsed.

**Article: 'Magic of Shavuot (Pentecost) 1967': https://www.aish.com/jw/j/48965971.html
12. Jubilee-Rapture correlations:
• Paul uses jubilee terminology such as "liberty" and "redemption" when describing the resurrection-rapture of the Church (Rom. 8:19-23).
• The Jubilee is when servants are liberated and land is returned to its original owner (Lev. 25). Correspondingly, the Rapture is when Christians are liberated and the 'title deed' to Planet Earth, symbolized by the sealed scroll in Revelation, goes back to God (Rev. 5).
• The Jubilee, (fiftieth year) is a type of Pentecost (fiftieth day). Since Pentecost is associated with the 'harvest" of the Church (Acts 2), the Jubilee may be associated with the harvest-rapture of the Church.
• The Jubilee is when spiritual blindness is lifted (Luke 4:18). Israel's blindness concerning Messiah-Jesus will be lifted after the full number of Gentiles comes in at the Rapture (Rom. 11:25).
• In Isaiah, the Jubilee is linked to the onset of the Day of the Lord (Isa. 63:1-6). The Day of the Lord commences around the time of the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 5:1-5).
• Since the Jubilee year is also the first year of a new seven-year cycle, it is a fitting time for the Rapture and start of a new period or era, i.e. the Tribulation or Day of the Lord.
13. The counting of Daniel's weeks is initiated by the going forth of a command to rebuild Jerusalem (Dan. 9:25).
The fountains, or sabils, of Jerusalem's wall were ordered rebuilt by Suleiman in 1536-37 AD. The walls and gates were ordered rebuilt in 1537-38 AD.* The Sabbatical week immediately following these orders begins at 1539 AD. Counting "seven" and "sixty-two" weeks (483 years) from 1539 AD, we arrive at 2022.
*Construction timeline for Jerusalem's wall in the days of Suleiman:
14. Solar and lunar eclipses are signs of the impending Day of the Lord: "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD" (Joel 2:31).
15. 2015 solar eclipse:
16. According to the Talmud, the sun was initially created in its vernal equinox position on Nisan 1. For this reason, on the rare occasions Nisan 1 coincides with the equinox, a special blessing known as Birkhat Hachama, or "Blessing of the Sun," is recited: "Blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the Universe maker of the works of Creation."
17. A lunar year consists of twelve orbits of the Moon around the Earth. Since each orbit takes approximately
29.5 days, a lunar year consists of 354 days, 8 hours, 48 minutes, and 34 seconds (354.36707 days).
18. Jesus is likened to a young stag three times in Song of Solomon (2:8-10, 17; 8:14).
19. Nisan 2022 also marks the start of the second Sabbatical week since two cows born with number '7s' on their heads made news around the Feast of Trumpets in Sabbatical year 2014-15. In prophecy circles, the two cows with '7s' were considered a modern version of the sign given to pharaoh, a dream-warning about seven fat cows and seven skinny cows, denoting seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine (Gen. 41).
20. Stretching the fig-tree generation to the maximum, the 81st anniversary of the March 1949 'growth spurt,' the endpoint is March 2030. However, because the Tribulation is likely to end in the fall, corresponding to the biblical festivals, the presumed end date is fall 2029. Subtracting seven years from fall 2029, we arrive at fall 2022 for a potential start time of the final week.
We Have Never Been More Vulnerable, And The Stage Has Now Been Set For A Complete And Total Economic Collapse - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/we-have-never-been-more-vulnerable-and-the-stage-has-now-been-set-for-a-complete-and-total-economic-collapse/
Teetering on a precipice can seem exciting until something comes along that knocks you over the edge. Unfortunately, the events of the past couple of years have perfectly set the stage for a global economic collapse of unprecedented size and scope. Inflation is out of control all over the planet, the worst global supply chain crisis since World War II continues to get worse with each passing day, and the vast majority of the global population is just barely scraping by from month to month. In other words, we have never been more vulnerable than we are right now.
Even in the United States, a shockingly high percentage of the population literally lives on the brink of financial disaster. According to a brand new survey that was just released, seven out of every ten Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck…
In these tough financial times, a new study finds it’s getting harder and harder for people to save any of their money. In fact, seven in 10 Americans say they’re living paycheck to paycheck.
A recent survey of 2,007 adults found that 63 percent don’t see themselves reaching a level of financial security that will allow them to live the lifestyle they want.
Most people do not have a sizable financial cushion to fall back on.
And even though our leaders in Washington have absolutely flooded the system with new money over the past two years, more than two-thirds of the country is living paycheck to paycheck.
As bad as things have been, it is only a matter of time before another major crisis of some sort comes along.
So what is going to happen when the other shoe finally drops?
During this pandemic we have also seen global supplies of just about everything get tighter and tighter and tighter.
In fact, the head commodity strategist for Goldman Sachs just publicly admitted that the world is now facing shortages of virtually all major commodities…
In a time when social networks have been swamped with photos of empty shelves from across the nation, Goldman’s head commodity strategist and one of the closest-followed analysts on Wall Street, said he’s never seen commodity markets pricing in the shortages they are right now.
“I’ve been doing this 30 years and I’ve never seen markets like this,” Currie told Bloomberg TV in an interview on Monday. “This is a molecule crisis. We’re out of everything, I don’t care if it’s oil, gas, coal, copper, aluminum, you name it we’re out of it.”
Read that last paragraph again.
This is a really big deal.
You may not realize it yet, but this isn’t just a temporary global supply chain crisis.
This is the beginning of a global supply chain collapse.
So what is going to happen when the other shoe finally drops?
All over the planet, way too much money is chasing way too few goods and services.
This is driving up prices at a staggering pace, and we continue to get more troubling news with each passing day.
For example, even though meat prices have already gone up very aggressively, Tyson Foods just announced that it will be raising prices yet again…
Stock of Tyson Foods, the world’s second largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork after Brazil’s JBS S.A., is soaring 9%, hitting an all time high and is one of the S&P’s best companies this morning…
… after the company reported blowout earnings (thanks to passing on surging food prices) and announced that it is raising prices even more as it grapples with a tight labor market and smaller livestock herds. According to the report, beef prices jumped by 32% in the quarter, with chicken up ~20% and pork 13%.
Of course similar things are happening in other industrialized nations all over the globe.
One British news sources is telling us that the economy in Germany “is in freefall” and that “devastating” price hikes are causing a tremendous amount of pain for consumers over there.
So what is going to happen when the other shoe finally drops?
Needless to say, a lot of people can see what is coming and they are taking steps to get prepared.
Earlier today, I came across a Wall Street Journal article that lamented the fact that so many Americans are engaged in “hoarding”…
Alexis Abell recently walked out of a BJ’s Wholesale Club outside Buffalo, N.Y., with 24 boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, a box of 50 frozen mozzarella sticks, a 40-pound bag of basmati rice and a 12-can pack of garbanzo beans.
“I don’t want to be in a position again where I can’t get something,” says Ms. Abell, a 41-year-old mother of five, who was laid off from her retail job at a quilt shop in 2020 and decided not to return to work.
I don’t call this “hoarding” at all.
I call it being smart.
The stupid people are those that expect the government to bail them out when everything starts hitting the fan.
As I have discussed previously, the federal government has a very limited amount of food, water and generators at eight widely scattered FEMA distribution centers around the country.
Other than that, the federal government purchases a very small amount of food that it distributes through foreign aid programs.
In the event of a major national emergency, the government’s meager supplies will be totally gone almost immediately.
Then you will be on your own.
The elite realize that global food supplies are only going to get tighter, and so they have been preparing for a time when bug protein will make up a significant chunk of our diets.
Doesn’t that sound yummy?
We are rapidly moving into a time when normal people won’t be able to afford to eat meat on a regular basis.
Once that day arrives, where will you get your protein?
Our world is changing at a pace that is absolutely breathtaking, but most people still want to believe that everything will go back to “normal” eventually.
Looking Up While Looking Out - By Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/2022/02/06/looking-up-while-looking-out-by-terry-james/
My friend Dr. J. R. Church used to end every TV program in Prophecy In the News with the words: “Keep looking up!” He was referring, of course, to Jesus’ command in Luke 21:28:
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
While the Lord was, without question, talking about being vigilant in watching for all the conditions He said would be prevalent as His time to call His Church to Himself neared, and, indeed, was pointing to His Second Advent, it is perhaps less than a stretch to ask if He was doing one more thing. Was He also alluding to the prophetic signal He mentioned a few verses previous?
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21: 25a).
It is a worthy question, considering recent developments. Strange things are going on in the heavenlies, with interest stirred almost weekly with new signs discovered in the region of the sun, moon and stars.
There is more than good reason to be concerned enough to “look up” with regard to signs in the heavens.
Our friend Dr. Thomas Horn of SkyWatch TV has presented a number of programs pointing to astronomical reports from scientists that predict an asteroid of earth-devastating size coming our way. The space rock the size of a stadium, termed Apophis, is on track to possibly impact the earth April 13, 2029. Horn has conjectured whether this could be the space object prophetically scheduled to crash into an ocean during the Tribulation. Such an impact would certainly cause great destruction and cause the death of millions.
More recently, scientists are changing their estimated trajectory predictions to say that this visitor from deep space might only be detrimental to satellites orbiting earth, thus disrupting the planet’s communications, etc.
This seems a ludicrous conclusion, considering an asteroid of such monumental size. I’m no astronomer or otherwise an expert, but something this big coming this close seems to me to be a cause of possible danger dwarfing the mere disruption of communication by knocking out a few satellites.
And signals from space continue to grab attention of scientists, who seem genuinely baffled. Here’s one story:
A team led by astronomers in Australia has discovered a brand-new type of object in deep space that behaves in bizarre and mysterious ways never seen before.
Something about 4,000 light-years away, which is relatively close in our cosmic neighborhood, was seen spinning around and regularly blasting out a massive burst of energy that lasted a full minute. Even weirder, that bright beam of radiation occurred like clockwork every 18 minutes.
“It was kind of spooky for an astronomer because there’s nothing known in the sky that does that,” astrophysicist Natasha Hurley-Walker said in a statement.
The behavior is similar to that of a pulsar or magnetar, which spin around as they blast out pulses of energy that can be detected here on Earth. But pulsars pulse very quickly, usually every few seconds. An object that sends out longer bursts just a few times an hour has never been seen before. (“Astronomers spy powerful deep-space object unlike anything seen before,” CNET, Rapture Ready News, 1/28/22)
Just as deep-space signals are ramping up interest by the scientists who say they are “spooked” by things they’re seeing, the whole UFO thing is being opened up by those in government who have always been desperate to put a cap on such information.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. government is finally getting back into the UFO business.
And depending on which UFO believer you ask, it’s either a historic step forward to getting to the bottom of conspiracies or a ploy to regain control of the narrative — and possibly even prepare for interplanetary war.
The establishment of a new office, signed into law just before New Year’s, to study “unidentified aerial phenomenon” has divided the loose community of activists, researchers and pseudo-scientists who hunt for proof that we are not alone in the universe.
Some hail the legislation creating the new office, tucked into section 1683 of the massive National Defense Authorization Act, for bringing new resources, rigor and officialdom to the investigation of a phenomenon — and a potential national security threat — that has long been stigmatized in a way that makes it difficult to study. (“Historic step forward or cover-up plot? Pentagon’s new UFO office splits ufologists,” Alex Seitz-Wald, 1/8/22, Rapture Ready News, 1/28/22)
With all this “looking up” by scientists and government, there must be something up, so this generation should be “looking out.”
Just as the powers that be have set in motion the machinery of generating fear through the microbial world of virus pandemic, so, too, I’m of the cynical opinion, they are beginning to raise the fear factor in pointing us to things to come from somewhere above.
I’ve pointed before to the thought that the “great delusion” of 2 Thessalonians 2 might involve the lie that extraterrestrial visitors will come to rescue us from planetary disaster. These will, the lie will include, be called down from space by the false prophet. In actuality, it might well be that Satan and his evil hordes are being ejected from the heavenlies for the final time in the war they have lost with God’s angelic forces.
Regardless of how it all plays out, it is time for all believers to be looking up while “watching” all going on around us, for our redemption—our Lord and Savior—must certainly be drawing near!
Daily Jot: Oppression by censorship - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The Founding Fathers of the US knew tyranny. They knew that religion, Judeo-Christianity in particular, instilled the values of God’s liberty. They also knew that suppression of free speech, censorship, and leverage applied to silence dissent was foundational to tyranny. Hence, the First Amendment to the Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Freedom of religion and speech are under attack by government, politicians and corporations willing to do the government’s bidding.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is on record encouraging Black Lives Matter protests, which in many cases turned violent, but when it comes to US athletes speaking out against China, she says, “As I wish the athletes well, I do not encourage them to speak out against the Chinese government there because I fear for their safety if they do.” I guess there are no safety concerns about BLM protests. But Peter Schweizer’s book, “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” gives us some insight on Pelosi’s connection with China. Pelosi’s husband began investing in and profiting from several companies whose success depended on business with the Chinese Communist Party. Paul Pelosi holds between $5 million and $25 million in such investments. So now, US Olympic athletes should just shut up and play.
Another example is the COVID censorship of dissent. The government hard line is that the vaccine is the only treatment that works and it is safe and effective. The government, through National Institutes of Health, controls the bulk of research grants. Any “scientist” wanting to keep research money, was leveraged to promote the government COVID propaganda. Doctors were told to toe the line or lose their hospital privileges. Any dissenters in the medical field who told the truth about successfully treating COVID without vaccination were vilified and censored as being against the science. Scientific studies suggesting life-saving alternative treatments were discounted as uncompelling. But if you follow the money, big pharma was forecast to make over $21 billion in just the first quarter of 2022. All this redistributed by the government from your pocket to theirs.
The Trucker Convoy Protest against COVID mandates received some $8 million from donors on GoFundMe. But GoFundMe decided the protests were violent (which they are not) and has withheld the money—yet another form of hypocritical censorship. Yet the GoFundMe site has pages of requests for donations for Black Lives Matter and Antifa. The DC March to Defeat Mandates was lightly covered by the media and heavily ridiculed as a bunch of ignorant people led by “misinformation.” The government propaganda machine using corporate media, big pharma, big technology, and crooked politicians is doing exactly what the Founding Fathers tried to prevent: censoring freedom of religion and of speech. It is a tyrannical workaround of the Constitution. Christ said in John 8:32, “the truth will set you free.” God’s word and speaking it boldly (freedom of religion and of speech) are foundational to freedom. Pray and speak against this oppression by censorship.
Daily Devotion: Who Are You Wearing? - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires. —Romans 13:14
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/who-are-you-wearing/ - Listen
Most of the time I like to wear jeans and a T-shirt or some sort of comfortable shirt. I don’t like shirts that are stiff or too heavy. Instead, I like clothing that moves where I move.
In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul wrote, “Clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires” (Romans 13:14 NLT).
The J. B. Phillips translation puts it as follows: “Let us be Christ’s men from head to foot, and give no chances to the flesh to have its fling.”
Paul was saying, in effect, that putting on the Lord Jesus is like putting on clothes. When we put on the Lord Jesus Christ, we’re making Christ a part of our lives every day.
When Jesus said to Matthew the tax collector, “Follow me” (Mark 2:14 NLT), it also could be translated, “Follow with me,” which speaks of companionship, relationship, and friendship. In other words, “Let’s enter into a friendship. Let’s enter into a relationship together.”
Yes, the Lord wants our obedience, but He also wants our companionship. Jesus was saying to Matthew, “I don’t want you to just be one of my disciples; I want you to be one of my friends.” And He offers that same invitation to us.
We often view God as harsh, austere, and angry, but nothing could be further from the truth. God is loving, God is compassionate, and God is caring. And He wants to enter into a friendship with us.
Jesus said, “I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me” (NLT). So follow Jesus every day throughout your life until the end. And wherever you go, put on Jesus.

"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.
