Most Christians think they know who builds the third temple in Jerusalem. But what if it’s not Israel, what are the implications if it’s someone else? Will the Antichrist build the third temple? Could the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant and the location of the original temples be involved? How might the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant be related to the Abomination of Desolation in the temple? Find all these answers by watching this video by Nelson Walters. What I like about Nelson is he knows he does not have all the answers and that as we search the Scriptures God continues to give us new revelation just as he did with the OT prophets. He will prompt you to search the Scriptures yourself and it is amazing that when you do, the Holy Spirit will give you fresh revelation which strengthens your faith and resolve to be an overcomer.
Over 100 prominent evangelical leaders who attended the fourth night of the Republican National Convention where President Trump accepted the party’s nomination for a second term were met with fiery threats from rioters while leaving the White House grounds, and even attendees — including older adults and those with disabilities that were also reportedly attacked as well.
Jesus told us that in the last days before His return to earth to rule and reign with a rod of iron. “ because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12
Freedom advocate and founder of the KAIROS Company who also attended the speech told The Christian Post that he experienced the riots firsthand. “Violent provocateurs waited for us (and others) outside the White House gates in the city’s jurisdiction, at nearly midnight,” Moore recalled.
“Rather than succeeding at intimidating us with their vicious threats of violence, expletives, blasphemous slogans, hatred, and intolerance they simply proved the very points the president made in his speech. I saw it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. What’s awful is that the very thing this does is take away the voice of peaceful protesters, whom we want to hear.”
A nightmarish drought, horrific flooding along the Mississippi River, and a giant “derecho” that just hit the farm belt have combined to make this one of the toughest years for American farmers ever. And this comes at a particularly bad time because the stress that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on food distribution systems has already created periodic shortages of certain items around the nation.
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
On Monday last, an absolutely massive “derecho” roared through the Midwest. According to USA Today, the storm had winds of up to 112 miles per hour… as powerful as an inland hurricane – as it tore from eastern Nebraska across Iowa and parts of Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois, including Chicago and its suburbs.
According to Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, approximately 10 million acres of crops were destroyed in Iowa alone… he said, most hurricanes don’t have winds that high once they finally reach shore, and I have personally never experienced wind speeds of such magnitude. Needless to say, this very unusual storm caused immense devastation. In addition, tens of millions of bushels of grain that were stored at co-ops and on farms were damaged or destroyed as bins blew away. If about 10 million acres were flattened just in Iowa, how many more acres did this storm destroy in Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Illinois?
Sadly, this one storm is going to completely financially ruin some farmers. For example, Iowa farmer Tim Bardole is facing losses that could potentially exceed one million dollars… Corn that used to stand upright on Bardole’s farm is now laying on its side. Some stalks snapped off, others ripped out of the ground at the roots.
Bardole estimated he’ll be out $200 an acre, which is $500,000 total. Worst-case scenario, that could go up to $500 per acre. That would equate to $1.25 million. Further south, many farmers along the southern Mississippi Delta have already had their growing seasons wiped out by historic flooding for the second year in a row…
The southern Mississippi Delta is home to some of the most fertile farmland in the United States. But not a single crop of soybeans, cotton, corn, or rice has been planted at many farms in the region — one of the poorest in the country.
Surely, Christians understand what is unfolding. Pestilences and famines are part of “end times” shaking which God subjects this planet, to bring people to repentance. Christians should be on our knees praying to ensure we are in the centre of God’s will for us. It won’t be too long before we stand before God in judgement. Your assignment in the Millennial reign of Jesus on this planet will be determined by what you do with your time here on earth now. Let me plead with you to start living with an eternal focus now.
Dalton Thomas of FAI does a good job of explaining the Mark of The Beast, its timing, and putting it, and current events in perspective. Dalton will challenge many on their view of God and how He operates in His world e.g. God allows the persecution of believers during the prophesied end times tribulation period. What Jesus had to say to the Church at Thyatira is pertinent in this regard.
“Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron... ” Revelation 2:25-26
It will be a time of great patience and endurance for believers. We overcome the Beast by following in the footsteps of our crucified Saviour, even to martyrdom.
Prophesied end times scenario
“There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven… You will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives.” Luke 21:11, 17-19
Millions of locusts have now descended upon Sardinia triggering leaders to declare a state of natural disaster and pleading for immediate action. In what many are describing as resembling a biblical plague, locusts have reportedly stripped large areas of the island’s agricultural regions of crops, in what the World Bank has already been branded the most serious such invasion the world has faced in 70 years according to Express news.
I have already posted several stories on locust plagues devastating first many countries in Africa then the Middle East now they have descended upon Europe.
The report stated the epicentre is formed by the municipalities of Orani, Ottana and Bolotana in the Tirso valley. The locusts arrived from the Mideast and Africa, where 23 countries have experienced similar devastation. The President of Reclamation Consortium of central Sardinia, Ambrogio Guiso is warning that roughly 13 thousand hectares of land had been impacted.
He went on further to state: “We ask for the immediate establishment of a control room so that the locust problem can be tackled with preventive actions. “We think that in concert with the other bodies in charge and with the coordination of the Region, concluded Guiso, an important preventive work can be done, with actions that must start now.”
Farmers have impacted the most and have limited options for mitigating the destruction caused by the vast numbers of locusts, other than burning fields to destroy the pests. Franco Saba, Mayor of Ottana, said: “Current damages must be compensated and preventive action has taken place to prevent the phenomenon from happening again in the next few years.” The cost of damage is still progressing – but Mr. Saba suggested it could run into millions of euros.
Multiples volcanoes erupting around the world along with hundreds of quakes striking near or under lava craters. No doubt, Covid 19 is the reason this seismic activity is not being given any attention by mainstream media.
There are currently 26 volcanoes erupting around the world and 13 showing enhanced activity. More than 100 earthquakes have been reported near or at volcanic peaks… Well the Ring is on Fire!
The Ring of Fire is currently heating up. There are 26 erupting volcanoes, 13 showing enhanced signs of explosion and 45 in unrest…
Moreover, many earthquakes happen right under or near volcanoes probably announcing movement of magma or magma chamber refill. Yes more than 100 have happened as of July 14th, 2020.
“As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Jesus privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them,
“…. and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. 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 24:3-14
THREE ANGELS DELIVER THE FINAL PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL
“Then I (John) saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.” Revelation 14:6-7
How many of you read my post “Covid 19 Coupled with a Major Debt Crisis – What’s Next?” dated June 15th 2020? I thought this to be one of my most important posts for 2020. If you have not read it, can I suggest that you do.
In that post some of the best qualified economic/political pundits gave their views on the likely outcome of Covid 19 coupled with the existing debt crisis of most countries. Debt levels are so great that even with interest rates barely above zero, countries cannot pay down the debt. It also means their currencies are next to worthless.
A FINANCIAL RESET IS INEVITABLE WAS THEIR CONCLUSION
In Australia debt is rising fast. No government can stop the inevitable financial crash.
As you would expect, the combination of failing revenue and runaway spending has resulted in a boost to government debt with total government liabilities at $1.3 trillion by the end of May – $300 billion higher than expected.
Net debt has hit a record $463.7 billion compared to $373.6 billion in the previous financial year, virtually destroying the Morrison Government’s stated aim of clearing all government debt by the end of the decade.
The Finance Department numbers are sobering but few are arguing that the Federal Government has been spending too much – indeed much of the economic commentary is urging them to ramp up spending now that interest rates have effectively reached their lower limit and the economy still needs stimulus.
The key to how the Federal Government will react to such calls will be announced by Treasurer Frydenberg in an economic update in late July, with the 2020-21 budget now due to be released in early October.
This is all part of God’s end times scenario. If your trust is in governments, yourself, or anything other than God then it is misplaced. Only He can give you true peace, the peace that comes from realising that He is in control, He has revealed the truth about the world and us in His Word (BIBLE) and we know the end of the story. Jesus will return first to rapture His church and then to rule and reign 1000 years from Jerusalem.
In the USA they, as a society (Supreme Court), have now said as a matter of law that to hold beliefs about marriage and gender and human sexuality that are consistent with the Bible is discrimination, that it’s hateful and bigoted.
Now, society might give some of those hateful religious people an exception because their Constitution and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act tell them that they have to do that. But, when you think about the political and cultural trajectory of the USA, how long do you suppose that the religious liberty exception is going to last when everybody thinks that this is a bigoted and evil view?
We should not be surprised, Jesus told us beforehand.
Jesus told His disciples “and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake.” Matthew 10:22a but also “But the one who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22b
Thankfully, there are many prophecies warning us of escalating tribulation in the seven years preceding His Second Coming. World events indicate we are approaching that last seven years but IMO we are not there yet.
Is this how capitalism dies? Through decrees from what once were the ivory towers of capitalism, no less?
The Fed is now up to $6 trillion of liquidity, or free money in the sense that it is taking over the role of large banks at 0% interest.
Go global and we’re approaching $20 trillion of central bank pledges and action.
None of the questions that tempered the start of QE are being raised. There is virtually no one talking about moral hazard. What does it mean for our society that government is pushing so far into what was — and may never be again — the private sector? No one will bother answering.
There is no one standing in the way of the largest transfer of wealth in history. The firewalls built into the system are being torn down, and the free markets are dying with barely a whimper.
Even Deutsche Bank, undoubtedly a major beneficiary, seems concerned about where this is going. George Saravelos, global head of Deutsche Bank’s foreign exchange research, just wrote in a report entitled “The end of the free market: impact on currencies and beyond” that:
“In a matter of weeks, policymakers have become a backstop for private-sector credit markets. At the extreme, central banks could become permanent command economy agents administering equity and credit prices, aggressively subduing financial shocks. It would be a bi-polar world of financial repression with high real economy volatility but very low financial volatility. A ‘zombie’ market‘.”
The Fed’s most recent announcement — $2.3 trillion in greatly expanded funding — goes as far as dipping into the junk bond market through buying up ETF shares.
A free market this is not. There is no version of capitalism that can divorce risk from profits. There is no version of this that forces society to shoulder the burden while a select few capture the profits.
Never before have we seen such centralised control. For the first time ever, can we see the world being set up for the prophesied Man of Sin (Antichrist) who speaks PEACE and PROSPERITY as long as you take his mark and give him control. Church do you realise where we are in Biblical history. When Jesus told us in the the Olivet Discourse, how it will end before His second coming, He specifically ended with, “SEE, I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFOREHAND” (Matthew 24:25). He told us beforehand so we would not be caught out and be taken in by this man of PEACE.
Jesus speaking to His disciples on the “end times” said, “And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:7-14
Long before we ever heard of the new coronavirus, African Swine Fever was devastating pork farms from one end of China to the other. There is no vaccine for “pig ebola”, there is no cure, and once it hits a farm the only thing that can be done is to kill every single pig so that it won’t spread anywhere else. But even though draconian measures have been implemented, it has just kept spreading, and at this point “about two-thirds of China’s swineherd has been lost”… Video of people fighting over pork at Chinese meat counters will likely become more common as the fallout from the African swine fever outbreak in China progresses.
Brett Stuart, president of the market research and analysis firm Global AgriTrends, estimates that about two-thirds of China’s swineherd has been lost to the disease and contrary to official government reports of recovery, more pigs are dying every day as ASF continues to spread.
Prior to this crisis, approximately half of all the pigs in the entire world lived in China, and they would usually slaughter about 700 million a year. But now pork production has absolutely plummeted, and this is driving pork prices in China through the roof… In China itself, pork prices are at an all-time high at just under $300 per hundredweight and the country outbids Japan, which is usually the top bidder. Food inflation is soaring and some Chinese people have been unable to buy pork in six months.
Meanwhile, there has been a very alarming resurgence of the H5N1 bird flu in China. According to the Daily Mail, more than 17,000 chickens have been culled in an effort to keep this new outbreak from spreading further. According to the Reuters report, Chinese authorities have already culled 17,828 poultry in the wake of the outbreak.
Unlike African Swine Fever, humans can become infected by the H5N1 bird flu. And according to the World Health Organisation, the mortality rate for human cases is approximately 60 percent.
Alarmingly, the H5N1 bird flu has also popped up at a facility in India. Authorities in an eastern Indian state will start culling chickens and destroying eggs from Tuesday to contain a bird flu virus of the H5N1 strain, a government statement said on Monday.
We haven’t heard much about the H5N1 bird flu in recent years, but this is an extremely deadly disease, and so WHO will monitor these developments very carefully.
On top of everything else, the H1N1 swine flu is starting to spread once again. In fact, more than 100,000 people in Taiwan “sought medical treatment for flu-like symptoms at hospitals across the country over the past week” and there have been 13 confirmed deaths…
At a time when the world is panicking over a 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak, the H1N1 flu virus is actually posing a greater threat in Taiwan, claiming 13 lives in the country in just one week, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
At a weekly meeting Friday, CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) said 116,705 people sought medical treatment for flu-like symptoms at hospitals across the country over the past week, including 61 more confirmed flu cases.
Not too long ago, the H1N1 swine flu caused mass panic all over the globe.
And never before have we seen so many alarming outbreaks occur simultaneously. Could it be possible that we have entered the time of which Jesus spoke, the time before His return to rule and reign from Jerusalem?
