Published on Mar 15, 2019

Current Events Linked To Biblical Prophecies. Everything is unfolding just as the bible foretold. Wars, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Christian Persecution, Violence and more! Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him 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?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 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.

ISRAEL LIGHTS UP THE GAZA STRIP AS NETANYAHU ORDERS MASSIVE AIRSTRIKES AGAINST HAMAS TERROR CELLS FOR EARLIER ROCKET ATTACK ON TEL AVIV

https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/israel-lights-up-the-gaza-strip-as-netanyahu-orders-massive-airstrikes-against-hamas-terror-cells-for-earlier-rocket-attack-on-tel-aviv/
The strikes came after an urgent late night consultation between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense chiefs in Tel Aviv.  “Decisions were taken,” an Israeli official said without elaborating. Army Radio reported that a decision was made to hit dozens of targets.Shortly after the strikes began the IDF issued a statement saying the “Hamas terror group carried out the rocket fire.” Hamas has denied it was behind the move.
Israeli war planes launched a series of airstrikes early Friday, hitting back at targets across the Gaza Strip hours after two rockets were fired at Tel Aviv for the first time since the 2014 war.
Israel didn’t wait long at all before ordering a retaliatory strike against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as the IDF unleashed blistering airstrikes on terror cells along the Gaza border. Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai urged the public to remain calm, but added that public bomb shelters would be opened shortly. All emergency response organizations in the Tel Aviv area increased their alertness following the incident.
Palestinian media reported that Hamas was evacuating military posts in Gaza in preparation for the Israeli response to the rockets. It also reported that the Egyptian delegation had left Gaza quickly after being instructed to evacuate by the IDF. There was no confirmation of the unsourced reports.
IDF launches airstrikes on Gaza targets after rockets fired at Tel Aviv
FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: The strikes came after an urgent late night consultation between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense chiefs in Tel Aviv.  “Decisions were taken,” an Israeli official said without elaborating. Army Radio reported that a decision was made to hit dozens of targets.
Shortly after the strikes began the IDF issued a statement saying the “Hamas terror group carried out the rocket fire.” Hamas has denied it was behind the move. Hamas-linked Al-Aqsa TV reported that Israeli aircraft fired two missiles at a target in the new port west of Khan Younis. It said that the aircraft then returned and attacked the same site 4 more times.
Israel Radio said the site was a base belonging to Hamas naval commandos. Palestinian media also reported multiple strikes on Gaza City and at a target in Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza.
The Hamas-run health ministry said there were no immediate reports of casualties.
Shortly after the strikes started, warning sirens blared throughout the Eshkol Regional Council bordering the Gaza Strip. The army said sirens were triggered by a failed launch from Gaza.
Later, sirens again sounded in the Sha’ar Hanegev region. The army said Palestinians in Gaza fired two rockets into Israel and one of them was intercepted by the Iron Dome System.
“Following reports of sirens in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, two launches were identified from the Gaza Strip into Israel,” the army said, adding that one rocket was intercepted. No details were given on the second projectile and there were no reports of injuries or damage. READ MORE:

ISRAEL STRIKES 100 HAMAS TARGETS AFTER ROCKET ATTACKS ON ISRAELI CITIZENS

Israel Strikes 100 Hamas Targets After Rocket Attacks on Israeli
JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli fighter jets and other aircraft hit more than 100 military targets inside Hamas-controlled Gaza overnight.  The strikes were a response to terrorist rocket attacks that targeted southern Israel and as far away as Tel Aviv. 
The Israel Defense Forces confirmed that IDF warplanes hit a Hamas terror headquarters, an underground rocket manufacturing site, and an unmanned aerial aircraft center in Gaza. There were no reported casualties.
Terrorists in Gaza responded to Israel’s air raids by launching even more rockets into southern Israel on Friday morning.
ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES
We hit 100 Hamas military targets in Gaza in response to the rockets they fired at Israeli civilians. Among them:
• Underground rocket manufacturing site
• HQ responsible for orchestrating Hamas terrorism in Judea & Samaria
• Hamas center of unmanned aerial aircraft#StopHamas
Israel’s air raid in Gaza was a direct response to a rare rocket attack on Tel Aviv late Thursday evening. Sirens blared in the metropolitan city and civilians took cover in bomb shelters to escape two rockets fired towards central Israel.
Imagine this over #NYC what response would be demanded of the US government if Mexico or Russia was firing explosives into densely populated cities? #IStandWithIsrael #IsraelUnderFire #israel #IDF #gaza
Israel’s Channel 10 reported the rockets were Iranian made.  After the rocket attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with security officials at the defense ministry in Tel Aviv to discuss a response.   
According to the IDF, the Iron Dome System was activated but did not intercept the weapons. Instead, the rockets fell and detonated in open territory.
Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, the chief Israeli military spokesman, said the IDF had been caught off guard by Thursday night’s rocket attack and had no advance intelligence.
Hamas denied responsibility for the attack, but after an investigation, Israel concluded the terror group was responsible.
The late-night attack on Israel’s commercial capital signals a dangerous escalation of conflict between the Jewish state and the terror organization. The last time Tel Aviv was targeted was in the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.
The terror group and Israel have fought three wars since Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.  Whether this situation will escalate is unclear. 
The fighting comes at a sensitive time for Israel. The country is just weeks away from its national elections on April 9. Netanyahu warned Hamas not to take advantage of the timing and assured the terror group Israel will respond to attacks with harsh military action.
“We will do anything necessary to restore security and quiet to the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip and to the south in general,” he told his cabinet.
Meanwhile, tensions flared Thursday between Hamas and the Palestinians civilians.
Hamas, the terrorist org that occupies Gaza since 2007, has opened fire on hundreds of Palestinians who protested today against its responsibility for their miserable lives.
They said: “We want to live!”
Hamas said: “We will kill you for saying this”.

WORLD WAR 3 COMING? ISRAEL IS ON THE BRINK OF WAR WITH HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH, SYRIA AND IRAN ALL AT THE SAME TIME

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/world-war-3-coming-israel-is-on-the-brink-of-war-with-hamas-hezbollah-syria-and-iran-all-at-the-same-time
On Thursday, rockets were fired at Tel Aviv for the first time since 2014, and Israel responded by hammering Hamas with airstrikes.  This latest exchange has brought Israel closer to another war with Hamas than ever.  But as you will see below, Israel is also on the brink of war with Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.  And on top of everything else, the most pivotal election in Israel in many years is on April 9th.  If more rockets are fired at Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cannot afford to look weak because that could cost him a lot of votes in this very tight election.  But he must walk a very fine line, because a military response that is seen as too harsh could potentially spark a major regional conflict.

IRAN: U.S. TO FACE ‘HEAVIEST DEFEAT IN HISTORY

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
US to Face ‘Heaviest Defeat in History’ if Iran Mobilises Resources
This week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated Washington’s intention to cut Iran’s crude oil exports down “to zero as quickly as market conditions will permit.” Tensions between the two countries continue to simmer following President Trump’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and resume sanctions last May.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has called on his nation to carry out a “maximum mobilisation” of its resources and capabilities to counter US, Israeli and European aggression against his country.
“The enemies, namely the US and Zionists [Israel], have today mobilised all their capabilities and facilities against the Iranian nation; and on the periphery, the West and Europeans are also showing their animosity toward Iran in some way,” Khamenei said, speaking at a meeting of the Assembly of Experts in Tehran on Thursday, the Tasnim News Agency has reported.
Commenting on US efforts to target Tehran with its “toughest ever” sanctions, the supreme leader warned that the “enemies’ hostile pressures” would be met with a powerful Iranian response.
“They have launched a maximal onslaught against Iran, but if we carry out a maximal mobilisation of facilities and capabilities, by the Grace of God, we will make the United States suffer its heaviest defeat in its history,” Khamenei said.
Laying out nearly a strategy for dealing with the challenges Iran is facing in connection with US sanctions pressure, Khamenei recalled that Tehran has extensive experience in dealing with such pressure, and called for “creative” and “prudent” thinking in confronting the country’s adversaries.
Iran-US relations have been poor for decades, with the two powers having no formal diplomatic ties since shortly after the 1979 Iranian Revolution which toppled the pro-US Shah regime. Relations improved somewhat after Iran, the US, Russia, China and several European states signed the Iran nuclear deal in 2015, providing the country with sanctions relief in exchange for a halt to any nuclear weapons program. However, relations collapsed to a new low in May 2018, after President Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the nuclear deal.

RUSSIA: NATO SENDING FORCES, MISSILES TO RUSSIAN BORDERS

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
NATO sends forces, missiles to Russia’s borders – top security official
NATO countries are reviving Cold War-era tactics by sending troops across the Atlantic and deploying BMD weapons near Russia’s borders, Deputy Secretary of the National Security Council Mikhail Popov said.
Speaking to the media Popov said that within two years the NATO Response Force has increased from 25,000 to 40,000 people, while battalion tactical groups of up to 1,000 people were deployed in the Baltic countries.
“The Cold War-era system of transatlantic deployment of troops are being revived and used to post coalition task forces to Russia’s borders,” he explained.
NATO is also preparing for a cyber war with Russia by opening centers of strategic communications in Riga, Latvia and Tallinn, Estonia, Popov said. These centers are aimed at “disabling networks of critical infrastructure of a potential adversary – first of all, of Russia.”
He also reminded of NATO’s project to ensure deployment of 30 troop battalions, 30 squadrons of aircraft, and 30 warships within 30 days in case of conflict, which was agreed in Brussels last June.
The BMD weapons deployment in European countries was another example of increased NATO operations near the borders with Russia, according to Popov. “Americans have apparently forgotten” that they deployed them in the first place to counter alleged “missile threat from Iran,” Popov said.

STRONG 5.5 QUAKE STRIKES NEAR KILAUEA VOLCANO, THIRD QUAKE NEAR FLORIDA-ALABAMA LINE

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Strong M5.5 earthquake hits close to Kilauea volcano, Hawaii – Will it wake up AGAIN?
A Magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck the south flank of Kīlauea Volcano on Hawaiʻi Island at 12:55 a.m. HST early Wednesday morning. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 7.0 km (4.3 miles) and was felt all across the Big Island. It was felt strongest in Volcano Village.
For a short time, the USGS website also measured the earthquake at a possible Magnitude 4.8, but later appeared to confirm the Magnitude 5.5 measurement. (That’s weird again!)
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which said the earthquake struck “in the Hilina region of Kīlauea Volcano,” reported that no tsunami is expected after the event. “However, some areas may have experienced strong shaking,” the PTWC said.
USGS added: “Kīlauea’s south flank has been the site of 16 earthquakes of magnitude-5.0 or greater during the past 40 years. Most are caused by abrupt motion of the volcano’s south flank, which moves to the southeast over the oceanic crust. The location, depth, and waveforms recorded as part of today’s earthquake are consistent with slip along this south flank fault.”
If the earthquake was strongly felt in your area, precautionary checks should be made for any damages; especially to utility connections of gas, water, and electricity.
Kilauea made headlines when it erupted last year, with lava flows from May to August destroying infrastructure and hundreds of homes. And this was not the first time the volcano met another force of nature. The eruption coincided with Hurricane Lane at the end of the summer and the pair altered the island’s landscape. But it doesn’t look like this earthquake will make it blow again!
Third earthquake reported near Florida, Alabama line; “rumble” on Space Coast still a mystery
The rattling continues. 
Seismologists said a third small earthquake happened Wednesday across the state line from the Panhandle area, even as questions continue about a mysterious rumble that rattled some homes across the Space Coast on Friday.
The latest earthquake took place about 1:27 a.m. in Flomaton, Alabama, which sits along the state line, just north of the town of Century and 175 miles south of Montgomery.
The incident, a magnitude 2.3 earthquake, had a depth of about 3 miles and shook the small town Tuesday night, making it the third earthquake to be detected in the area in less than a week. A 3.1 magnitude earthquake hit near the same Alabama town on Monday. No damages were reported in either case.
Last week, a 2.7 tremor hit Century.
For residents on the Space Coast, news of the various temblors is bringing to mind a strange rumbling that shook portions of Merritt Island, Viera, Cocoa, and possibly as far away as Lake Mary, about 6 p.m. Friday.
The shaking was not strong enough to be picked up by the U.S. Geological Survey, the federal agency that monitors earthquakes worldwide.

TROPICAL CYCLONE IDAI – DEADLIEST WEATHER DISASTER OF THE YEAR

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Tropical Cyclone Idai is the DEADLIEST weather disaster of 2019, killing 122 in Mozambique and Malawi
The initial system killed at least 66 people due to flooding in Mozambique, Agence France-Presse reported. Flooding has also destroyed more than 5,700 homes and impacted more than 140,000 people in the southern African country.
Flooding from the storm has already inundated nearly 650 square miles, destroyed 18 hospitals, 938 classrooms and injured 122 people.
Tropical Cyclone #Idai will likely be the strongest TC to hit Mozambique since Eline in 2000 (115 kt). Unfortunate timing of ERC completion about a day before landfall means wind field will be both larger and stronger at the time of landfall. Environmental conditions are ideal. pic.twitter.com/xn6Bgig6aA
— Levi Cowan (@TropicalTidbits) March 13, 2019
Evacuations have been ordered along coastal regions of the country as the cyclone approaches. Now in Beira, Mozambique:

— Duarte Gouveia (@duarteg0uveia) March 14, 2019
The government has decreed a red alert due to the continuing rains and the approach of the tropical cyclone Idai, expected to reach the country between Thursday to Friday,” said cabinet spokeswoman Ana Comoana.
In Malawi, the government declared a state of emergency after 56 people died and hundreds of thousands were displaced by flooding.
Before the storm formed over the Mozambique Channel this week, it was a disturbance that settled over the region and unleashed torrential rains the flooded much of the two neighboring countries. The system moved out to sea, formed into a tropical cyclone and is heading back to Mozambique’s shore. Look at its weird shape below:
“Extremely dangerous” tropical cyclone #Idai is approaching landfall in #Mozambique, with sustained max winds of 165 kmh and life threatening storm surge which may coincide with high tide. Potential “worst case scenario” for Beira, says WMO RSMC La Reunion @meteofrancepic.twitter.com/yGJKO1K9xe
— WMO | OMM (@WMO) March 14, 2019
Now considered the deadliest weather disaster of 2019, Idai is expected to bring highly destructive winds, heavy rains in excess of two feet and a 20-foot storm surge.
The storm is expected to make landfall Thursday night near Beira, Mozambique’s fourth largest city, with 530,000 residents.

TOP EXECS FLEE FACEBOOK – CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION OVER DATA DEALS

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Top Execs Flee Facebook: Chief Product Officer, WhatsApp CEO Both Quit; Stock Tumbles
The storm clouds gathering above Facebook are getting darker by the hour.
Less than one day after Facebook suffered an unprecedented outage that lasted for hours and impacted all of the company’s media properties (which was blamed on a “server configuration outage”), and just hours after the NYT reported that Facebook is under criminal investigation over its data deals, and that a New York grand jury has subpoenaed records from at least two smartphones manufacturers which gained access to personal data of hundreds of millions of users, moments ago Facebook announced that two top execs  had unexpectedly quit the company.
In a blog post to employees published on the company’s website, in which he said that he wants “to share some important updates as we organize our company to build out the privacy-focused social platform I discussed in my note last week” adding that “embarking on this new vision represents the start of a new chapter for us”, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote that both Chris Cox, Chief Product Officer, and Chris Daniels, CEO of WhatsApp, had decided to leave the company.
For a few years, Chris has been discussing with me his desire to do something else. He is one of the most talented people I know and he has the potential to do anything he wants. But after 2016, we both realized we had too much important work to do to improve our products for society, and he stayed to help us work through these issues and help us chart a course for our family of apps going forward. At this point, we have made real progress on many issues and we have a clear plan for our apps, centered around making private messaging, stories and groups the foundation of the experience, including enabling encryption and interoperability across our services. As we embark on this next major chapter, Chris has decided now is the time to step back from leading these teams. I will really miss Chris, but mostly I am deeply grateful for everything he has done to build this place and serve our community.
Zuckerberg also announced that Will Cathcart will be new head of WhatsApp, and that Fidji Simo will be new head of the Facebook app; meanwhile Zuck said he doesn’t plan to immediately appoint anyone to fill Cox’s role.
“This is an important change as we begin the next chapter of our work building the privacy-focused social foundation for the future. I’m deeply grateful for everything Chris Cox and Chris Daniels have done here, and I’m looking forward to working with Will and Fidji in their new roles as well as everyone who will be critical to achieving this vision. We have so much important work ahead and I’m excited to continue working to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together” Zuckerberg wrote.
It was unclear if the departing execs left for a specific reason – i.e., the increasing political scrutiny over the world’s most powerful and influential publisher of news – or if they simply wanted to “spend time with their family.”
The market is not very excited by this development, and the Stock slumped a further 1.5% after hours, bringing the day’s total drop to nearly 4%

GOOGLE FINALLY ADMITS THEY ARE TRACKING USERS EVEN WHEN ‘LOCATION’ TURNED OFF

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Google Exec Finally Admits to Congress That They’re Tracking Us Even with ‘Location’ Turned Off
A Google executive admitted during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday that Google tracks users’ phones  — even when their location history is turned off.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) questioned Google Senior Privacy Counsel Will DeVries about the company’s tracking policies during a hearing examining online consumer privacy. Some of DeVries’ answers will likely disturb consumers who thought there was a way to avoid being tracked by Google through their phones.
In his prepared remarks, DeVries told lawmakers that “the processing of personal information is necessary to simply operate the service the user requested.” He asserted that “requiring” individuals to control every aspect of data processing “can create a burdensome and complex experience that diverts attention from the most important controls without corresponding benefits,” and therefore a “specific consent or toggle” should not be required for every use of data.
“I’m concerned about the implicit bargain that consumers are being asked to ratify by which they supposedly get free services but actually have enormous amounts of personal data extracted from them without knowing exactly what’s going on,” Hawley said. He asked DeVries about his claims in his prepared remarks that Google provides “free” services and that the company “clearly explains” how personal data is used. “Is that really true?”
DeVries explained that it’s “complicated”—a word that he used several times as he tried to evade Hawley’s questions about why Google tracks its users’ locations.
An Associated Press report in August 2018 found that “many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store your location data even if you’ve used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so.”
“Storing your minute-by-minute travels carries privacy risks and has been used by police to determine the location of suspects — such as a warrant that police in Raleigh, North Carolina, served on Google last year to find devices near a murder scene,” the AP explained.
Google, at the time, was evasive about whether or not users were being tracked when Location Services is turned off.
“There are a number of different ways that Google may use location to improve people’s experience, including: Location History, Web and App Activity, and through device-level Location Services,” a Google spokesperson told the AP. “We provide clear descriptions of these tools, and robust controls so people can turn them on or off, and delete their histories at any time.”
Hawley pointed out on Tuesday that a user’s location is sent to Google hundreds of times a day, even when the phone is not in use. In fact, Hawley said, a user’s location is tracked “every four minutes, or 14 times an hour, roughly 340 times during a 24-hour period,” even when the phone is not in use.
DeVries confessed that “location information is absolutely core to making a mobile phone work the way that you want it to work.” He said that Google has an “optional service” called Location History that is opt-in and “can collect location over time when people turn that on.”
“But Google collects geolocation data even if Location History is turned off, correct?” Hawley pressed.
“Yes, senator, it can in order to operate other services“
Hawley interrupted: “Let’s just get that on the record. Google collects geolocation history and information even if Location History is turned off.” He asked DeVries if he thought the average teenager was aware that Google tracks his location by scanning area Wi-Fi networks.
DeVries defended the practice, saying the data is used to provide “value” to the user, citing the need for Google Maps to determine where a user is.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) then jumped into the fray. “The phone is off,” off he reminded DeVries.
The Google exec explained that the location data is necessary to perform a phone’s “basic functions.”
“So the consumer cannot meaningfully opt out,” Hawley shot back, reiterating the fact that the phone is still communicating and sending information to Google even when the phone is not in use and Location Services are turned off. “And you’re monetizing it and using it to direct ads at him, correct?”
“It’s not complicated,” Hawley insisted. “What’s complicated is that you don’t allow consumers to stop your tracking of them. You tell them that you do. You would anticipate that they do — that the consumer would have a reasonable expectation based on what you’ve told them, that they’re not being tracked — but in fact, you’re still tracking them. You’re still gathering the information and you’re still using it.”
“By the way, this is just the phone. We’re not even talking yet about [Google] Search or internet tracking,” Hawley said.
He continued: “Americans have not signed up for this. They think that the products you’re offering them are free. They’re not free. They think they can opt out of the tracking that you’re performing. They can’t meaningfully opt out.” Hawley said it’s like the Eagles song “Hotel California”: “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”

CALIFORNIA PARENTS WANT TO HAVE A CELL PHONE TOWER TAKEN DOWN BECAUSE KIDS JUST KEEP GETTING CANCER

http://endoftheamericandream.com/March 14, 2019March 14, 2019 by Michael Snyder
Could this be one of the reasons why cancer rates are steadily rising all over the world?  The radiation that we are constantly being bombarded with by the cell phone industry is one of the greatest environmental scandals in history, and yet the environmental movement is almost completely silent about this crisis.  As you will see below, scientific study after scientific study has linked cell phone use to cancer, and yet nothing is being done.  Instead, the big cell phone corporations are about to roll out their ultra-powerful 5G network nationwide, and that is just going to make this health crisis much worse.

PLANETARY COLLAPSE THREATENS OUR SURVIVAL: A NEW STUDY SAYS THAT MORE THAN 1,200 SPECIES “WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY FACE EXTINCTION”

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/
We are witnessing a worldwide environmental collapse, and nobody seems to know how to stop it.  As you will see below, a study that was just released that looked at more than 5,000 species of birds, mammals and amphibians discovered that nearly a quarter of them “will almost certainly face extinction”.  Never before has our society faced such a massive collapse of life on a planetary scale, and yet the vast majority of the population doesn’t seem concerned about what is happening.  Species after species is being permanently wiped out, and most of us couldn’t care less.
