The following report is from the financial research organisation, Stansberry Research.
Did you know Elon Musk is involved in a company called Neuralink, which is building brain-implantable computer chips?
They’ve already succeeded in implanting these chips into monkeys. And it’s only going to be a short matter of time before we see working chips in humans. That could give quadriplegics the ability to walk again. The possibilities are endless for this type of technology.
Genetics, DNA, and CRISPR
The next force is the huge advancements we’ve made in understanding the building blocks of what it is to be human. Our understanding of our DNA and genetics is advancing rapidly.
We’re quickly creating a huge amount of information on how all our genetics and DNA interact with each other, and the environment around us.
One of the most obvious recent developments on this front was the creation of mRNA vaccines. These vaccines work by delivering a set of instructions that our cells use to produce certain defensive proteins.
In this case, it’s our understanding of the relationship between DNA, mRNA, and how our cells work that has allowed this advancement to occur. But that’s not all. Ever heard of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats? A bit of mouthful, isn’t it? The abbreviation is a bit more recognisable.
To put it simply, CRISPR is a relatively recent technology that allows us to edit genes or turn off or on their expression. This means we’ve just recently discovered how to edit the basic building blocks of what makes us, well, us!
An obvious implication for this is parents who want to screen their unborn babies for genetic defects or to alter their genes to achieve the healthiest, smartest possible child. This might sound crazy right now.
But just think about how we currently use vaccines to change our bodies’ response to viruses. That’s just one step away from changing the basic structure of our bodies themselves.
Imagine if we could right now change a piece of DNA so that we couldn’t get diabetes, heart disease, or cancer! Who wouldn’t want that?
Medicine leaps forward
The last force I want to mention is the great medical leap forward that we’re currently experiencing. Now, there are three particular parts of this advancement that we specifically want to mention, but it certainly doesn’t stop there.
The first is replacement parts. By that, we’re talking about organ transplants. We’ve just recently seen the first pig-to-human heart transplant success. That’s a major leap forward, and it required some pretty big advancements in our abilities.
So organ transplants are very much starting to mature as science and become much more advanced.
The second aspect is our diagnosis. We are starting to get really good at reading the proteins and other indicators in our blood that tell us early on that a problem is developing. We’re also becoming more advanced with scanning and imaging so we are catching problems earlier.
The third aspect is what’s called senescence, which is the deterioration of the functions of our cells as we age. You can think of this as the core essence of aging itself, whereby our body heals and replaces cells at a slower rate as we get older.
Well, this area has seen some remarkable breakthroughs recently. In fact, scientists were recently able to not just stall aging, but actually, reverse the aging process in mice. That’s a huge leap forward.
Reversing this aging process is now within sight, and we could see a meaningful impact on our lives this decade with this research.
All three of these forces are colliding to form the 200-year human. Genetic modification and screening will be combined with direct chip implants and a greater understanding of how to detect and solve medical problems.
Our first stock in this theme is a great example of this whole big collision.
You see, they’re doing something that will take organ replacement to the next level. They’re all about 3D printing organs, but not only that. And they’ve got a pretty special technology that gives them an edge over the rest of the market. And it all comes down to collagen.
This report reminds me of the time God intervened in the affairs of mankind to create all the different languages of the world in order to disperse people all over the world.
“And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.”Genesis 11:6
I believe that God will not allow mankind to interfere with the building blocks of humans so this is just one of the signs, along with all the other prophesied signs that God is going to intervene in the affairs of men again, but this time by Jesus returning to earth to rule and reign over the nations.
Former Vice President Mark Pence spoke at a Young America’s Foundation event at the University of Virginia. He revealed what is happening in the USA under Biden’s Democrat government. Whether in the form of Critical Race Theory, Marxist propaganda, or radical gender theory, the Left has launched a full-fledged assault on the USA society, depriving the people of freedom, prosperity, and security, he said.
Pence is concerned that this may be the last generation that has a chance to restore Godly values. Sadly, God has shown us in His Word that lawlessness will increase in the last days, moreover, the Antichrist will have his prophesied time ruling the nations. The Rapture of the Saints and the wrath of God poured out on the unrepentant are then next on God’s end-times timetable.
Mike Pence’s efforts are commendable but his comment that the best days for America are yet to come is wrong and will not help prepare Christians for the coming tribulation.
You will be blessed by connecting to the ministry of Torben Sondergaard. This is an important podcast from TLR exposing false teaching and false teachers.
TLR shows what the Bible truly says about impartation and anointing and how the teaching we see in churches today about the anointing has opened the doors for many false prophets/false Christs. Jesus told us that in the “last days” false Christs like GeorDavie Maarifa will arise. There is a time to be quiet, and there is a time to speak. There is a time when what has happened in secret should be shouted from the rooftops, and TLR felt compelled to share about this false prophet GeorDavie Maarifa and his apostle Kathryn Krick. We encourage you to see this whole program, take your Bible, and see if what they are teaching is the truth. May this podcast be an eye-opener for you out there and set you free to live the life Jesus has truly called you to live! Please share this with others, and help to get this crucial word out to the churches! God bless you!
Following on my post on February 13th, US President Joe Biden believes Russian leader Vladimir Putin has decided to invade Ukraine and that the attack could begin “in the coming days.”
“As of this moment, I’m convinced he’s made the decision. We have reason to believe that,” Mr Biden said, adding that Washington has “significant intelligence capability” to back the claim.
“We believe they will target Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, a city of 2.8 million innocent people,” he said of Russian forces.
But with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken scheduled to speak with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday, Mr Biden said there was still time for negotiations to defuse the crisis.
“Diplomacy is always a possibility,” he told a press conference overnight.
Mr Biden said Moscow was conducting a disinformation campaign, including accusing Kyiv of planning its own attack in order to create a pretext for a Russian invasion.
“There is simply no evidence to these assertions and it defies basic logic to believe the Ukrainians would choose this moment, with well over 150,000 (Russian) troops arrayed on its borders, to escalate a years-long conflict,” Mr Biden said.
“All these are consistent with the playbook the Russians have used before to set up a false justification to act against Ukraine,” Mr Biden said at the White House.
The Australian Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg aims Ukraine war salvo at Russians at G20 meeting
The US President’s latest warning comes after Australia and Russia clashed behind closed doors at a G20 finance ministers meeting in Jakarta, with Josh Frydenberg warning Russia that an invasion of Ukraine would deliver not only a human disaster but a devastating second shock to the global economy just as the world was recovering from Covid.
In an interview with The Weekend Australian, the Treasurer said Russia was playing a “dangerous game” with the global economy that threatened to derail the pandemic recovery.
Mr Frydenberg’s comments follow Defence Minister Peter Dutton’s assessment that Russia and Ukraine were on the cusp of all-out war.
Scott Morrison said on Friday an invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces was imminent. “I hope that does not occur, but I think what we are seeing leads us to fear the worst,” the Prime Minister said.
In a closed-door intervention on Thursday night leading into the first G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bankers for this year, Mr Frydenberg issued a warning to his Russian counterpart that an invasion of Ukraine, which the West now fears is imminent, would have far-reaching human and economic costs.
“On the global outlook, we face a range of important challenges,” Mr Frydenberg told the meeting in which Russian deputy finance minister Timur Maksimov was present.
“The current tensions surrounding Ukraine are deeply concerning, We call upon Russia to de-escalate tensions, the alternative would be disastrous in both human and economic terms. It is in our collective interest that these tensions are resolved peacefully.”
Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland is understood to have issued a similar message, claiming that the knock-on economic consequences of an invasion of Ukraine would deliver a global shock to the economy worse than the pandemic.
Ms Freeland said she was worried the work the G20 was doing to recover could be jeopardised should Russia invade.
The remarks from Mr. Frydenberg earned a swift response from Russia, which accused Australia and Canada of using the economic forum as a security meeting.
Jesus tells us that in the “last days” before He returns to rule and reign there will be false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. They are under the power of Satan and we know he disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise that his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” 2 Corinthians 11-15
We need to recognise that the true battle is in the heavenly places and it is against the spiritual forces of evil which is why we are told to put on the full armour of God daily.Are you being obedient to your Lord and Saviour?
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
“Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel ofpeace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,” Ephesians 6:14-18
Our job with the lost is to preach the Good News as directed by the Holy Spirit knowing they cannot understand the word of God without the Spirit of God.
“For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:5-8
We are also called to love them, pray for them, and return good for evil but also to be sensitive to what the Holy Spirit may be doing in their lives. The Holy Spirit may prompt you to use one of the nine Holy Spirit gifts that He expects us to operatein. He distributes them according to His will.
“Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.” Luke 6:35-36
“God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will.“Hebrews 2:4
Article from The International Chronicles – Interactive Forum of Political Culture January 21st 2022
THE “ACADEMY” IS DEAD… IT WAS COWARDLY AND FECKLESSLY ALLOWED TO BE SLOWLY CHOKED TO DEATH AND MURDERED BY THE MARXIST PROFESSORIAL CLASS AND ITS ACADEMIC MINIONS. THE APPALLING IDEOLOGY OF DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUITY (DIE) IS DEMOLISHING EDUCATION AND BUSINESS… AND HAS NOW DRIVEN A BRILLIANT MAN FROM ITS REALM.
“There were many reasons why I resigned, including the fact that I can now teach many more people and with less interference online. But here’s a few more:
First reason: my qualified and supremely trained heterosexual white male graduate students (and I’ve had many others, by the way) face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions, despite stellar scientific dossiers. This is partly because of Diversity, Inclusivity, and Equity mandates (my preferred acronym: DIE). These have been imposed universally in academia, despite the fact that university hiring committees had already done everything reasonable for all the years of my career, and then some, to ensure that no qualified “minority” candidates were ever overlooked. My students are also partly unacceptable precisely because they are my students. I am academic persona non grata, because of my unacceptable philosophical positions. And this isn’t just some inconvenience. These facts rendered my job morally untenable. How can I accept prospective researchers and train them in good conscience knowing their employment prospects to be minimal?
Second reason: This is one of many issues of appalling ideology currently demolishing the universities and, downstream, the general culture. Not least because there simply is not enough qualified BIPOC people in the pipeline to meet diversity targets quickly enough (BIPOC: black, indigenous and people of colour, for those of you not in the knowing woke). This has been common knowledge among any remotely truthful academic who has served on a hiring committee for the last three decades. This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job. And we’ve seen what that means already in the horrible grievance studies “disciplines.” That, combined with the death of objective testing, has compromised the universities so badly that it can hardly be overstated. And what happens in the universities eventually colours everything. As we have discovered.
All my craven colleagues must craft DIE statements to obtain a research grant. They all lie (excepting the minority of true believers) and they teach their students to do the same. And they do it constantly, with various rationalizations and justifications, further corrupting what is already a stunningly corrupt enterprise. Some of my colleagues even allow themselves to undergo so-called anti-bias training, conducted by supremely unqualified Human Resources personnel, lecturing inanely and blithely and in an accusatory manner about theoretically all-pervasive racist/sexist/heterosexist attitudes. Such training is now often a precondition to occupy a faculty position on a hiring committee.
Need I point out that implicit attitudes cannot — by the definitions generated by those who have made them a central point of our culture — be transformed by short-term explicit training? Assuming that those biases exist in the manner claimed, and that is a very weak claim, and I’m speaking scientifically here. The Implicit Association test — the much-vaunted IAT, which purports to objectively diagnose implicit bias (that’s automatic racism and the like) is by no means powerful enough — valid and reliable enough — to do what it purports to do. Two of the original designers of that test, Anthony Greenwald and Brian Nosek, have said as much, publicly. The third, Professor Mahzarin Banaji of Harvard, remains recalcitrant. Much of this can be attributed to her overtly leftist political agenda, as well as to her embeddedness within a sub-discipline of psychology, social psychology, so corrupt that it denied the existence of left-wing authoritarianism for six decades after World War II. The same social psychologists, broadly speaking, also casually regard conservatism (in the guise of “system justification”) as a form of psychopathology.
Banaji’s continued countenancing of the misuse of her research instrument, combined with the status of her position at Harvard, is a prime reason we still suffer under the DIE yoke, with its baleful effect on what was once the closest we had ever come to truly meritorious selection. There are good reasons to suppose that DIE-motivated eradication of objective testing, such as the GRE for graduate school admission, will have deleterious effects on the ability of students so selected to master such topics as the statistics all social sciences (and medicine, for that matter) rely upon completely for their validity.
Furthermore, the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have a “social justice” orientation. That, combined with some recent legislative changes in Canada, claiming to outlaw so-called “conversion therapy” (but really making it exceedingly risky for clinicians to do anything ever but agree always and about everything with their clients) have likely doomed the practice of clinical psychology, which always depended entirely on trust and privacy. Similar moves are afoot in other professional disciplines, such as medicine and law. And if you don’t think that psychologists, lawyers and other professionals are anything but terrified of their now woke governing professional colleges, much to everyone’s extreme detriment, you simply don’t understand how far this has all gone.
Just exactly what am I supposed to do when I meet a graduate student or young professor, hired on DIE grounds? Manifest instant skepticism regarding their professional ability? What a slap in the face to a truly meritorious young outsider. And perhaps that’s the point. The DIE ideology is not friend to peace and tolerance. It is absolutely and completely the enemy of competence and justice.
And for those of you who think that I am overstating the case, or that this is something limited in some trivial sense to the universities, consider some other examples: This report from Hollywood, cliched hotbed of “liberal” sentiment, for example, indicates just how far this has gone. In 2020, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Oscar people) embarked on a five-year plan (does that ring any historical bells?) “to diversify our organization and expand our definition of the best,” They did so in an attempt which included developing “new representation and inclusion standards for Oscars,” to, hypothetically, “better reflect the diversity of the movie-going audience.” What fruit has this initiative, offspring of the DIE ideology, borne? According to a recent article, penned by Peter Kiefer and Peter Savodnik, but posted on former NY Times’ journalist Bari Weiss’s Common Sense website (and Weiss left the Times, because of the intrusion of radical left ideology into that newspaper, just as Tara Henley did recently, vis a vis the CBC): “We spoke to more than 25 writers, directors, and producers — all of whom identify as liberal, and all of whom described a pervasive fear of running afoul of the new dogma. … How to survive the revolution? By becoming its most ardent supporter. … Suddenly, every conversation with every agent or head of content started with: Is anyone BIPOC attached to this?”
And this is everywhere — and if you don’t see it, your head is either in the sand or shoved somewhere far more unmentionable. CBS, for example, has literally mandated that every writers’ room be at least 40 percent BIPOC in 2021 (50 percent in 2022).
We are now at the point where race, ethnicity, “gender,” or sexual preference is first, accepted as the fundamental characteristic defining each person (just as the radical leftists were hoping), and second, is now treated as the most important qualification for study, research, and employment.
Need I point out that this is insane? Even the benighted New York Times has its doubts. A headline from August 11, 2021: Are Workplace Diversity Programs Doing More Harm than Good? In a word, yes. How can accusing your employees of racism etc. sufficient to require re-training (particularly in relation to those who are working in good faith to overcome whatever bias they might still, in these modern, liberal times, manifest) be anything other than insulting, annoying, invasive, high-handed, moralizing, inappropriate, ill-considered, counterproductive, and otherwise unjustifiable?
And if you think DIE is bad, wait until you get a load of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scores. Purporting to assess corporate moral responsibility, these scores, which can dramatically affect an enterprise’s financial viability, are nothing less than the equivalent of China’s damnable social credit system, applied to the entrepreneurial and financial world. CEOs: what in the world is wrong with you? Can’t you see that the ideologues who push such appalling nonsense are driven by an agenda that is not only absolutely antithetical to your free-market enterprise, as such, but precisely targeted at the freedoms that made your success possible? Can’t you see that by going along, sheep-like (just as the professors are doing; just as the artists and writers are doing) you are generating a veritable fifth column within your businesses? Are you really so blind, cowed, and cowardly? With all your so-called privilege?
And it’s not just the universities. And the professional colleges. And Hollywood. And the corporate world. Diversity, Inclusivity, and Equity — that radical leftist Trinity — is destroying us. Wondering about the divisiveness that is currently besetting us? Look no farther than DIE. Wondering — more specifically — about the attractiveness of Trump? Look no farther than DIE. When does the left go too far? When they worship at the altar of DIE and insist that the rest of us, who mostly want to be left alone, do so as well. Enough already. Enough. Enough.
Finally, do you know that Vladimir Putin himself is capitalizing on this woke madness? Anna Mahjar-Barducci at MEMRI.org covered his recent speech. I quote from the article’s translation: “The advocates of so-called ‘social progress’ believe they are introducing humanity to some kind of a new and better consciousness. Godspeed, hoist the flags, as we say, go right ahead. The only thing that I want to say now is that their prescriptions are not new at all. It may come as a surprise to some people, but Russia has been there already. After the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks, relying on the dogmas of Marx and Engels, also said that they would change existing ways and customs, and not just political and economic ones, but the very notion of human morality and the foundations of a healthy society.
The destruction of age-old values, religion, and relations between people, up to and including the total rejection of family (we had that, too), encouragement to inform on loved ones — all this was proclaimed progress and, by the way, was widely supported around the world back then and was quite fashionable, same as today. By the way, the Bolsheviks were absolutely intolerant of opinions other than theirs.
“This, I believe, should call to mind some of what we are witnessing now. Looking at what is happening in a number of Western countries, we are amazed to see the domestic practices — which we, fortunately, have left, I hope — in the distant past. The fight for equality and against discrimination has turned into aggressive dogmatism bordering on absurdity when the works of the great authors of the past — such as Shakespeare — are no longer taught at schools or universities because their ideas are believed to be backward. The classics are declared backward and ignorant of the importance of gender or race. In Hollywood, memos are distributed about proper storytelling and how many characters of what color or gender should be in a movie. This is even worse than the agitprop department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.”
This, from the head of the former totalitarian enterprise, against whom we fought a five decades’ long Cold War, risking the entire planet (in a very real manner). This, from the head of a country riven in a literally genocidal manner by ideas that Putin himself attributes to the progressives in the West, to the generally accepting audience of his once-burned (once (!)) twice-shy listeners.
And all of you going along with the DIE activists, whatever your reasons: this is on you. Professors. Cowering cravenly in pretense and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. As the walls crumble. For shame. CEOs: signaling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. You’re evil capitalists, after all, and should be proud of it. At the moment, I can’t tell if you’re more reprehensibly timid even than the professors. Why the hell don’t you banish the human resource DIE upstarts back to the more-appropriately-named Personnel departments, stop them from interfering with the psyches of you and your employees, and be done with it? Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists before you fatally betray the spirit of your own intuition. Stop censoring your thought. Stop saying you will hire for your orchestral and theatrical productions for any reason other than talent and excellence. That’s all you have. That’s all any of us have.
He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising. Please spread the word and share.
For Christians, Jesus told us what it will be like before He returns and it will be tough as the following Scripture indicates. Our priority must be prayer and joining with like-minded Christians to support one another. God has work He has assigned for each one of us to do. We need to know what that is and stay focused.
“What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them… “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.“
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.”2 Timothy 3:1-5
The rapid rise of the globalist agenda is hell-bent on forming Satan’s prophesied one-world government. This nefarious movement is called The Great Reset. World Economic Forum (WEC) Founder Klaus Schwab co-authors book The Great Reset. The Corona Virus epidemic has enabled the WEC to bring forward their agenda for a one-world government.
How is the Great Reset using technology to change our culture towards globalism? In this video, Nathan Jones of Lamb and Lion Ministries explores how Satan is using today’s technologies to unite the world under his new culture and ethos. Nathan first begins by analyzing how drastically this modern-day tech culture is negatively affecting our vulnerable youth. Next, he identifies Satan’s insidious end-goal and then reveals his overarching strategy towards making this goal a soon reality.
No other generation in the past has been subjected to as many distractions as the Millennials and Gen-Zs of today. Gen-Zs, in particular, have lived their entire lives never having known what life was like without being connected to the Internet 24/7 and their mobile devices. This characteristic has led Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University, to label Millennials and Gen-Zs as Generation Me and iGen respectively. And, after having reviewed two studies about classroom attention spans, led columnist Victoria Barret to label the children of today as the Distracted Generation.
A great price has been paid psychologically for these endless distractions. Barret cites a Pew Research Center finding where nearly 90% of teachers surveyed said that digital technologies were creating “an easily distracted generation with short attention spans.”
In a Common Sense study, 71% of teachers surveyed said they thought technology was hurting attention spans “somewhat” or “a lot,” with 60% concluding that online distractions hindered their students’ ability to write and communicate in person. Almost half of the teachers concluded that continual distractions also hurt critical thinking and homework skills.
Well, this ever-connected, though ever-connected to their “friends” over social media, losing in-person human relationships has caused Gen-Zs to find themselves increasingly homebound, jobless, lonely, dislocated, lethargic, physically weakened, depressed, taking prescription pain killers, and even 35% more likely to commit suicide than previous less-technical generations.
Technology and the many devices that connect us provide great benefits to the individual and society, but in the wrong hands, they can produce great harm. The lord of all evil, Satan knows this. He’s had a plan going for thousands of years, since the beginning of his corrupting influence on humanity, and it continues to this day. The only difference between then and now is that Satan has added technology to his strategy for reaching his insidious goal.
Nathan sets out to identify the big picture view of what is going on with the Great Reset and to identify Satan’s end goal and his overarching strategy. Finally, he reveals a number of the technologies which combined culminate into the ultimate device that Satan now employs to help achieve his nefarious objective.
Satan’s goal and strategy: What is it exactly?
The book of Isaiah provides a first-hand narrative of exactly what Satan has long been attempting to achieve. He said,
“I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:13
So, what strategy does Satan employ in his attempt to reach his sinister goal of establishing his global empire and so garner the praise of mankind? Well, he continues to follow the same five-step strategy he did back in the Garden of Eden.
Step number one, Satan’s goal is to distract. The first step in his nefarious strategy is to steal planet Earth from mankind by distracting God’s children just as he did Eve.
Step number two is self-focus. So, with Eve’s mind distracted away from all she possessed to know only what she could not have, Satan implemented the second step in his strategy to wrest the world away from humanity. He made the humans focus not on a loving God and their countless blessings, but on themselves.
Step number three, destroy mankind’s relationships with God and each other.
Step number four, Satan keeps humanity divided so that they cannot threaten his earthly rule.
Step number five, Satan employs globalization by creating a newly shared culture and morality (depraved). This great reset of the global culture is meant to bring about a false sense of harmony and result in the reunification of discordant nations, but all under the control of Satan’s new world order.
Evangelism expert, Rick Richardson describes the characteristics of this brave, new post-modern culture as including “a common belief that all people are their own gods, they often engage in identity politics, they are rampantly distrustful of authority, they hold a general belief that love rules, they have an overt fear of “the patriarchy,” they readily discard whatever came before, and they tend to view Christians as self-serving.”
With the advent of today’s vast technologies, the pinnacle being the smartphone and the soon coming metaverse, Satan has found the perfect devices in which to mold his new unifying ethos and culture.
Security technologies include the Orwellian-realized world of constant monitoring via cameras, microphones, and smart assistants such as Siri, Echo, and Google Home. They are always listening to you. For example, since 2014 when Amazon unveiled the Echo speaker featuring Alexa, its voice-activated virtual-assistant software, they hired armies of low-paid Amazon employees to listen in and transcribe your conversations. They glean very personal security information from it. And, they said it was to make the product better, to improve its service.
With the new technologies, totalitarian governments get involved in security monitoring. A good example is China’s Social Credit Score. It is a forerunner to the Biblical “Mark of the Beast“, It has already been instituted in their more populous cities. And countries throughout the world are buying up its system. China’s Communist government has infiltrated millions of cameras everywhere in order to spy on their citizens, including the cameras built into cellphones. Computer algorithms then rate the citizen’s allegiance to the government, granting benefits to those who are more loyal and restrictions on those people deemed not to be patriotic enough. Many other countries are adopting this system and I am sure it will eventually become a worldwide system.
God has given us many prophecies about the time before Jesus returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom. He wants us to know so we can use the time wisely to complete the work He has called us to do. Also, there are many end times ministries that God has set up to alert His people such as Lamb and Lion Ministries, Nelson Walters YouTube videos, and even my own http://www.livingeternal.net and more recently http://www.millennialkingdom.net which is in the process of being set up. Shortly a series of PowerPoint Sermons will go up in the Resources section. Take a look, I appreciate helpful feedback. Unity within the body is essential (John 17).
Use the link below to watch Nathan Jones complete presentation. I have taken excerpts for this post.
“It is sad that simple historical truths are being labeled as ‘hate speech,”Eytan Meir, Im Tirtzu’s (Building the Zionist Dream) International Relations Coordinator, told United with Israel.
Facebook removed a video posted by the Im Tirtzu Zionist movement that traces the history of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from biblical times to the present, noting that the concept of a Palestinian nation only came about in recent years.
We are living in a time where facts and truth are being sacrificed in the name of political correctness and wokeness. This is especially true regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict, and that is why videos like this are so critical.
“We will continue creating content that tells the truth about the conflict, regardless of what Facebook thinks,” Eytan Meir said. It clearly demonstrates that the Prince of this World, Satan controls Facebook.
Meir added that an English version of the video is in the works, which he hopes will be published “in the upcoming weeks.”
Im Tirzu chairman Matan Peleg said: “We invite the public to watch a video describing the rich and extensive history of the Jewish people and to judge for themselves whether the decision to remove the video was justified.”
The Bible reveals that this small nation that was miraculously reborn as a nation in 1948 exactly as prophesied will be centre stage of world events right up to the time Jesus returns to rescue it from total annihilation. The Antichrist and his false prophet send out demonic spirits to assemble kings from all over the world for the battle at that place in Hebrew called Armageddon.
“And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty... And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” Revelation 16:13-16
TikTok Videos about Transgenderism dominate the Platform with 26 Billion Views. There is no shortage of pro-LGBTQ content on the video-sharing app TikTok.
An analysis by the Daily Mail found TikTok videos including the hashtag #Trans have garnered more than 26 billion views, the outlet reported, many of the clips featuring footage captured by young people playfully documenting their transitions from one sexual identity to the other, often undergoing hormone treatments to block or halt puberty, or recovering from body-modifying surgeries to appear more like the opposite sex.
This comes as TikTok, owned by the Beijing-based technology company ByteDance, has overtaken Google as the most popular web domain in 2021. In fact, the app is more popular than Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, Twitter, and Amazon, too, according to Cloudflare.
Stephanie Davies-Arai of Transgender Trend, which “advocates for the most vulnerable children who are caught up in the recent trend in society to replace the objective reality of sex with the subjective idea of ‘gender identity’ as the criteria for the being a man or being a woman,” told them Daily Mail that TikTok is “hugely influential and it’s full of videos that portray medical transition as cool and edgy.”
“Gender is seen as the new rebellion,” she said. “These social media platforms that promote medical transition should be made to include a warning on such material.”
Of the millions of videos on TikTok, one clip highlighted by the Daily Mail showed a user saying, “I used to be a good Christian kid,” before going on to showcase a transformation to a “trans, gay atheist who loves tattoos and chaos.” There is a seemingly endless stream of other similar content.
A spokesperson for TikTok told the U.K.-based outlet the app is “honored that the LGBTQ+ community has embraced TikTok from our very early days, as a platform for self-expression, education, community-building, and joy.” “Our content allows young LGBTQ+ people to know that they are not alone in their experiences,” added the representative. In my opinion, this is just another “end times” sign. Biblical end times prophecy indicates the world will be throwing off God’s values just before Jesus returns. As well, Christians who defend God’s values will be persecuted. Jesus warns us there is worse to come before He returns to rescue the Saints and to pour out His wrath on an unrepentant world.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:9-14
“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.” Matthew 24:6-8 and Mark 13:7
Top Israeli defense officials say the country is preparing for the possibility of an armed conflict with regional arch-rival Iran and its proxies.
“We will be prepared to execute operations that haven’t been seen in the past, with means that weren’t in our hands in the past, that will harm the heart of terror and its abilities,” said Defense Minister Benny Gantz.By Associated Press
Israeli army chief of staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi said Tuesday that the Israeli military was “speeding up the operational plans and readiness for dealing with Iran and the nuclear military threat.”
Israel considers Iran an existential threat and has warned that it would act with military force if needed to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Last month Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said that “if a terror regime is going to acquire a nuclear weapon, we must act.”
Addressing lawmakers at a meeting of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Kohavi said the military “continued to act against our enemies in covert operations and missions around the Middle East” during the past year.
His remarks came following a string of reported Israeli airstrikes in Syria. Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on Iran-linked military targets in neighboring Syria in the past decade but rarely acknowledges its operations. It has been said that Iran’s presence near its northern frontier is a red line and that it targets arms shipments bound for Iranian-backed Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and Iran-linked facilities in Syria.
Speaking during a visit to a defense industry factory in the northern city of Shlomi, near the Lebanese border, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that Israel was “working all the time to prevent war — carrying out operations, conveying messages, preventing (a military) build-up.”
In the event of war, he said, “we will be prepared to execute operations that haven’t been seen in the past, with means that weren’t in our hands in the past, that will harm the heart of terror and its abilities.”
What we see Iran doing militarily is an “end times” prophecy in the book of Daniel. Iran is the ram charging westward and northward and southward. The two horns represent the supreme leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei and General Hossein Salami head of the country’s Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) together they control all political and military power in Iran.
“I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam (Iran). And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram (Iran) standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue them from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” Daniel 8:2-4
We need to watch for the next part of Daniel 8’s prophecy to be fulfilled. Sunni Turkey (Goat) will not tolerate Shia Iran (Ram) claiming leadership of the Muslim middle east. Turkey (previously controlled the powerful Ottoman Empire) considers itself the leader of the Muslim world. Daniel’s prophecy predicts Turkey defeating Iran in what is described as a savage encounter but then we are told Turkey’s bid to re-establish a neo-Ottoman Empire is short-lived. We are not told who comes against Turkey, possibly the UN or a coalition of western nations that do not want to see a revived Ottoman Empire. Russia for one would not want to see a revived Ottoman Empire challenge its dominance in the region. We are told that it is broken up into four nations/kingdoms and it is out of these that the Little Horn (Antichrist) emerges.
Turkey’s attempt to re-establish a neo-Ottoman Empire
“The goat (Turkey) had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came toward the two-horned ram (Iran) I had seen standing beside the canal and rushed at him with savage fury. I saw him approaching the ram, and infuriated with him, he struck the ram, shattering his two horns, and the ram was not strong enough to stand against him... Then the male goat became very great, but when he became powerful, the large horn was shattered. Four conspicuous horns came up in its place, pointing toward the four winds of heaven.” Daniel 8:6-8
It is only then that the Antichrist (little horn) arrives on the scene and is allowed to dominate the world for an allotted time, three and half years.
“From one of them, a little horn emerged and grew extensively toward the south and the east and toward the beautiful land. It grew as high as the heavenly host, made some of the stars and some of the host fall to the earth, and trampled them. It made itself great, even up to the Prince of the host; it removed His daily sacrifice and overthrew the place of His sanctuary. Because of rebellion, a host, together with the daily sacrifice, will be given over. The horn will throw truth to the ground and will be successful in whatever it does.” Daniel 8:9-12
Ezekiel 38 also links the Antichrist (Gog) to modern Turkey (and/or its immediately surrounding vicinity). Ezekiel singles out all Islamic nations in the Middle East and North Africa as comprising the vanguard of Gog’s invasion force during the Great Tribulation.
