(THIS IS THE WORLD’S CURRENT TIMELINE)
Matt. 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Matt. 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Matt. 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Matt. 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Luke 12:40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not
THIS IS THE WORLD’S VERY NEAR FUTURE:
Matt. 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be
WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
“And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.”
Here Jesus was alluding to the fact that the Doctrine of Eternal Security WILL EXPIRE WITH THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
SO WON’T YOU ACCEPT JESUS NOW AND BE REMOVED FROM THAT EVENT (OF TRIBULATION) AND LIVE FOREVER WITH JESUS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
QUESTION: I have a question about Revelation 3:10, I understand post trib rapture believers say that Revelation 3:10 implies protection while through but not removal from the tribulation. Pre-tribbers claim the word “from” in the Greek [ek] means “out of.” Therefore, we claim we will be physically kept “out of” the tribulation. Post-tribbers claim that the meaning of “ek” would more accurately be translated “out from among,” or “out of the midst of.” They say this is how it is defined in the Greek lexicons. In Rev. 3:10, the object is the tribulation. In order to come “out from among” the tribulation you must first be IN the tribulation.
ANSWER: According to Strong’s concordance the Greek word ek is a primary preposition denoting origin (the point whence action or motion proceeds), from, out (of place, time, or cause); “literal or figurative.” It can be translated “from” “out of” or “away from.”
If so, then the Lord’s promise to keep us from the hour of trial in Rev. 3:10 means out of the place of the hour of trial, out of the time of the hour of trial and out of its cause, which according to Jeremiah 30:1-11 is the complete destruction of the nations among which Israel has been scattered and the discipline of Israel.
This view is supported by Paul’s statement in 1 Thes. 1:10 that Jesus rescues us from the coming wrath. In this verse he used a different Greek word that’s also translated from. The word is apo and it meansa separation of distance, time, and origin from the object.
QUESTION: What part does repentance have in becoming saved? We often read we must just ask for forgiveness and believe in Jesus.
ANSWER: This is confusing to many because somewhere along the way the word “repent” was re-defined to mean “change your behaviour.” But the Greek word translated “repent” in the New Testament really means “change your mind.” It’s used mostly in the gospels and the first part of the Book of Acts when either Jesus or the disciples/apostles were urging their Jewish listeners to repent and be saved.
Because their audience had been taught that keeping the Law was the way to salvation, they needed to change their minds and realize they needed a Saviour. This is what Jesus was teaching in Matt. 5:20 when He said unless their righteousness surpassed that of the Pharisees they would certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The Pharisees had devoted their lives to keeping even the smallest details of the Law, and Jesus was saying this was not sufficient for salvation. It was going to take an even greater righteousness than that.
Later, Paul wrote that God had made known a righteousness apart from the Law that comes through faith in Jesus to all who believe, and this righteousness would be sufficient to save us (Romans 3:21-24). This is the righteousness Jesus had been talking about.
Gentiles didn’t need to change their minds about saving themselves through the Law, they needed to change their minds about their behaviour and recognize that it was sinful. This is true of unbelievers today as well. Before anyone can be saved, they need to come to the realization that they’re sinners and believe that Jesus died and rose again so their sins could be forgiven. This is what the phrase “repent and be saved” means.
Therefore, when we’ve asked Jesus to be our savior, the repenting has been done.
What Does Repent Mean?
QUESTION: I recently found the following definition for repentance. It’s different from others I’ve seen. Can you tell me if it’s correct?
The word in the New Testament usually translated “repent” is the Greek word “metanoeo”. It means “to change your mind; reconsider; or, to think differently.” Granted, if a person changes his mind (repents) toward certain sins in his life, he may become very sorrowful and may even stop committing those sins, but this would be a result of repenting, not repentance itself.
When God tells an unsaved man to repent, He means for that man to change his mind about how to reach God and accept His way of salvation. The person must change his mind from any idea of saving himself through religion or good works, and trust Christ’s death as payment for everything he has done wrong.
ANSWER: This is a great definition and the correct one. Thank you for sending it to me. Repent means to change your mind. If you already know you’re a sinner in need of a saviour, you don’t need to repent to be saved, you just need to ask Jesus to save you. If you already know your behaviour is a sin, you don’t have to repent, just confess.
Many of us were taught that repenting means to stop doing something, but if that was true we’d all have to stop sinning before we could ask Jesus to save us. Since we can’t stop sinning, none of us would ever be saved.
After we’re saved the Lord sends His Holy Spirit to dwell in us and help us change our behaviour, but that happens after we’re saved, not before, and even then we really won’t ever completely stop sinning until we’re raptured or resurrected. That’s why we’ve been saved by grace through faith, not by works. (Ephes. 2:8-9)
QUESTION: Can you give us a great understanding of the Hebrew and Greek words for our English word called Repentance? I know you think its translated from Hebrew and Greek to English as a change of heart but can you actually show us in words the translation from Hebrew/Greek to English?
ANSWER: A good translation of repent from Hebrew to English is in the KJV of Jonah 3:10 where it says, “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did [it] not.”
God had Jonah tell the people of Nineveh that he would judge them in 40 days, but when He saw how they responded He changed His mind and delayed the judgment. The Hebrew word is nacham and as you can see, meansto change one’s mind.
In Hebrew, there can also be an attitude of sorrow or regret associated with the change, which is not in evidence here. God was obviously not sorry that He didn’t get to judge Nineveh, but in Genesis 6:6 the same word is used to show that God was sorry that he ever created mankind. But in neither case does the text imply that God needed to clean up His behaviour. (As if He could.)
The examples I gave of John the Baptist in Matt. 3:2, and Peter in Acts 2:38 in the article, What Is Sin? demonstrate the same idea in the New Testament. In both places, the Greek word is metanoeo and means to change one’s mind. Both John and Peter were admonishing their listeners to change their minds about their need for a Saviour.
Commentators sometimes attach their own opinions in defining the word, but according to Strong’s Concordance, from which I got this definition, the meaning is clear. Like I said, it’s one of the Bible’s most misunderstood words.

WORLD – PROPHETIC NEWS ARTICLES PRESENTATION (TUESDAY 00th OCTOBER 2020)
MIDDLE EAST AND WORLD WAR LOOMINGTHE BUILD UP TO PSALM 83 – ISAIAH 17 AND GOG OF MAGOG WARS EZEKIEL 37-38:
THE WHOLE WORLD IS UNSTABLE FINANCIALLY, POLITICALLY, PHYSICALLY, MORALLY, GODLY: – AND BECOMING MORE SO DAILY. (WE ARE IN THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS (MATT 24:8)
THE BIBLE STATES THAT IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE BEFORE THE START OF THE TRIBULATION OF MANKIND – (REVELATION 6)
But before that we have to go through the Birth Pangs, leading up to the Tribulation of Mankind; and I feel that the beginning of Matthew 24 explains that time very well. We are currently in the Birth Pangs (Even though Matthew 24: is directed at the Jewish Nation, it still reflects Biblical Prophecy for the whole World at this time):
Matt. 24:6 And ye shall hear of WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Matt. 24:7FOR NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Tensions are rising between the U.S. and China, as the list of ideological, political and economic clashes continues to lengthen. And there is a transparent new reality: China seems in no mood to back down.
“The Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border,” Secretary of State Michael Pompeo ominously warned on Friday.
He spelled out what he meant to commentator Larry O’Connor:
“The Chinese have now begun to amass huge forces against India in the north. … They absolutely need the United States to be their ally and partner in this fight.”
Pompeo had just returned from a Tokyo gathering of foreign ministers from the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, or “Quad,” the group of four democracies — U.S., Japan, Australia, India — whose purpose is to discuss major Indo-Pacific geostrategic issues.
Exactly what kind of “ally and partner” the U.S. is to be “in the fight” between India and China over disputed terrain in the Himalayan Mountains was left unexplained. We have no vital interest in where the Line of Control between the most populous nations on earth should lie that would justify U.S. military involvement with a world power like China.
Yet, tensions are rising between the U.S. and China, as the list of ideological, political and economic clashes continues to lengthen.
And there is a transparent new reality: China seems in no mood to back down.
Xi makes no apology for — indeed, he is proud of — using state power to impose the state ideology upon the peoples he rules, and he openly repudiates our democratic values as inapplicable in his country.
Our rejection of China’s claims to virtually all of the reefs and atolls in the South China Sea is also being ignored. Beijing’s warnings grow louder and more pointed as the U.S. continues to send warships, the latest being the USS John McCain, close to islets claimed by China.
What is our strategy here? Are we prepared for a naval and air clash in these waters? What would be the U.S. strategic goal?
The Chinese are now responding angrily and defiantly to what they see as the provocations of sending high-level U.S. officials, and selling new weapons, to Taiwan, which China regards as its lost province.
Again, what is our purpose in playing the Taiwan card now?
If it is to provoke a fight, then are we prepared for a war in the Taiwan Strait or South China Sea? Do we think the Chinese will capitulate?
When this election is over, this country has to think through what we are and are not willing to fight China for.
Xi Jinping dismisses our concerns over Hong Kong and the Uighurs, and he appears willing to fight for Taiwan and for what Beijing holds in the South China Sea, rather than see it permanently lost.
Bernard Lewis, the preeminent Middle East researcher of the past few generations, said after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rose to power that Iran could turn into Turkey, and Turkey might morph into Iran. Lewis meant that after the mullah regime was ousted, Iran might fulfil the hope for moderation and contribution that were once hung on Turkey, whereas Erdogan could drive the modern and moderate Turkey he inherited into destructive radicalism in the style of the Islamic Revolution. For now, the threat from Ankara is materializing, but not the hopes for Tehran.
In addition to the disaster he has brought down on his own country, Erdogan’s megalomaniac policies have outraged his neighbors in the Fertile Crescent, the Arabia Peninsula, and the Mediterranean Basin. The damage he is causing is being discovered in Europe. His policy is hurting American and Israeli interests. Hamas, Qatar, Azerbaijan, and the government of Fayez al-Sarraj in Tripoli are his only allies.
In Europe, he poses a multifaceted threat. The NATO alliance was established and destroyed by democratic nations to address the Soviet (now the Russian) danger. Turkey was a little unusual, but gradually developed democratic characteristics and NATO could depend on its large military for its needs. Recently, we are seeing a stark contrast between the democratic characteristics of NATO members and Turkey’s regime of oppression. Erdogan’s close ties with Russia, and acquisition of an air defense system that poses a threat to NATO aircraft testify to his intentions. Erdogan’s steps to eradicate government functionaries and weaken Turkey’s armed forces erode its value as a military asset. His policy is ruining Turkey’s credibility; it is now a Trojan horse in NATO.
Erdogan isn’t even trying to hide the threat to European society and politics in two sensitive areas: enclaves of Turks and refugees. He is blatantly encouraging a process of radicalization among the million Turks who have emigrated to Europe since the 1970s, mainly to Germany. That radicalization demands that they remain loyal to Turkey and their Islamic culture, at the expense of their citizenship and process of integrating into their new home countries. In the fall of 2015 Erdogan encouraged a wave of about a million refugees to Europe, mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Given the Europeans’ helplessness in addressing the matter, he struck a “protection” deal with German Chancellor Angela Merkel – he would stop the influx of refugees for a billion euros. Since then, he has been waving his ability to reopen the dam as a way of extorting benefits and money from the frightened Europeans.
Israel has a long list of problems with the anti-Semitic megalomaniac from Ankara. He supports Hamas, he tried to but the maritime weapons blockage on the Gaza Strip, and allows top terrorist Hassan al-Arouri to operate in his country under a Turkish passport. He threatens Turkey’s most important Arab allies, wages a pan-Islamic war against Israel in Jerusalem and sends his agents to fight it. In the Mediterranean, he threatens Israel’s economic assets as well as its allies.
Sky News host Rowan Dean says the next World Economic Forum in Davos has morphed from a “jet-setter climate gabfest” into a sinister “anti-democratic enterprise designed to destroy your job, steal your prosperity and rob your kids of a future.”
“It’s a hardcore leftist eco-horror show replete with quasi-fascism,” he said. Mr Dean highlighted what he described as a “disturbing trend among many of the world’s left-wing elites to increasingly conflate COVID-19 with climate change. Many are going so far as to suggest that all the measures applied to the coronavirus, the lockdowns, the destruction of businesses, the suppression of dissent, curfews, strong-arm police tactics, should become the ‘new normal’ for dealing with climate change.“
Mr Dean said the next World Economic Forum is planning “to convince governments with the help of big businesses and big tech to bring about something deeply sinister called ‘The Great Reset’. It is a program designed to strip us all of our fundamental democratic rights in favour of a new form of society as dictated by the elites.“
Mr Dean said the advertising for ‘The Great Reset’ was “just about as cliched and vomit-inducing as the most inane corporate ad can be. This promo is saying that all the very worst things in the world, from the coronavirus to bushfires to riots to pollution to poverty are somehow linked. Then it is claiming they can magically disappear. Literally at the push of a button and just like that, everything in the world is made right and pure again. The Great Reset. What could be simpler?
Mr Dean said ultimately “lunatics including Prince Charles and the United Nations and the IMF want to replicate the global response to COVID and repurpose it for climate change, to enforce zero net emissions.“
Schwab indeed sounds clownish. And yet he is head honcho when ‘the Davos set’ meet annually. He is also a retired member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee.
It’s all (pretty much) out in the open now (which is why it’s ‘safe’ for a Rupert Murdoch-owned media corporation to air such ‘conspiracy theory’ dissent).
Covid-19 is about ‘the climate agenda’ – inducing, corralling or otherwise enforcing total compliance with ‘global governance’, their preferred term for One World Government.
Quite where the orders emanate from is not yet clear, but it is clear – given that diverse national governments are rolling out precisely the same lunatic ‘Covid-19 measures’ in lockstep with each other – that the orders are centrally disseminated.
Regular readers know that we have been warning about the likelihood of increasingly extreme weather and increasing numbers of meteor fireball events presaging a period of global mayhem – possibly culminating in ice age conditions – in which all will feel the effects of food shortages and systemic upheaval.
If we have known about this for the last two decades, then it’s a safe bet that they have some idea of what’s coming. There are differences of course; throughout, they have been telling only half-truths (which amounts to lying by omission): climate change isn’t man-made, and its effects won’t be felt 50 years hence when some coastal cities gradually submerge under warming oceans.
No, it’s a natural cyclical phenomenon, and its effects are ramping up now.While they continue to lie by omission and cloak what they know in ideological verbiage, the ‘elites’ at the very least are united by a sense of urgency in ‘doing something now, before it’s too late’.
But their ‘solutions’ to anticipating the coming threat to their lofty positions are entirely self-serving. They seek to ‘lock it all down’ in order to – they believe – be able to ‘better manage’ the crisis when it fully develops in the coming years.
Covid-19 is about ‘training’ the population, ahead of time, to believe that only dependency on government can ‘save’ them…
A radical left-wing group that claims it is working to stop the “violent white supremacist machine that is the Trump administration and its supporters” has posted a Google document containing detailed battle plans to take down the U.S. infrastructure and bring the nation to its knees following another Trump victory.
It casts its plan for disruption as a response to an imagined “coup” by the president in the case of a close election.
In an email promoting the guide, ShutDownDC declares: “Preventing Donald Trump from stealing the election and remaining in office is likely to take mass, sustained disruptive movements all over the country.” The guide is a manual to that “disruption.”
Parts of the guide are committed to ensuring a “fair election.” Parts of it, however, read like a manual for staging a coup rather than a guide to preventing one.
Immediately after the election, Democrats will likely activate their full-blown chaos agenda to throw the country into mass chaos, making any accurate counting of remaining votes almost impossible. This will likely begin with so-called “Zero Day” attacks that target key US infrastructure, including the power grid, telecommunications, transportation and water supplies.
These attacks will plunge many areas of America into extreme chaos and lead to exploding crisis scenarios which will quickly escalate into panic among the populations of certain cities where the attacks are focused.
In concert with the Zero Day attacks, left-wing insurrectionists will be given the “go” signal to flood into the streets, violently attacking Trump supporters with the full forces of the weapons that have been smuggled into the hands of Black Lives Matter terrorists via communist China, which is providing heavy weapons to US insurrectionists (full-auto battle rifles, RPGs, mortars and more).
The ShutDownDC document promotes exactly this scenario, advocating “broad based direct action… in the streets… at the sites of power.” Here’s a section directly from the report:
In the context of a coup or highly contested election we need to be clear that our actions must directly affect the structures and pillars of power. Our largest asset in this regard utilizes the ideas of non-compliance through massive, broad based direct action. Where we can, we need to be in the streets, on the highways, or at the sites of power and power holders. In our jobs and lives we must refuse to allow those taking control the legitimacy of the power they seek through strikes, slowdowns, and boycotts, and public refusal to accept an illegitimate ruling party.
The group’s tactics also clearly include targeting the military and the media to turn against the U.S. Constitution and “side with the people.” It suggests that activists ponder new ways to bring the country to its knees and disrupt normal day-to-day activities:
In order to really win we will need to force some pillars of power (business, military, media, or other major institutions) to decide to side with the people, or at least get out of the way. If everyday life goes on, a despot will not leave power, and so there will be no incentive for real systems change. You want to think about what it might take to stop business-as-usual.
As Breitbart.com explains, “The guide also says that activists plan on physically protecting the vote count from counter-protestors, federal agents, or white supremacist militias. The guide indicates that activists intend to ‘demand that no winner be announced until every vote is counted,’ and that they will launch ‘mass coordinated action’ to that end.”
If President Trump is declared the winner on Election Night, the Shut-Down DC group calls for violent attacks against anyone supporting Trump’s victory:
Trump may try to declare himself the victor before the votes are counted, or Fox News might call the race. Those who can should be prepared to take action against those who are feeding into the stolen election narrative, including social media companies that are letting falsehoods or incitements to violence spread.
The document repeatedly calls for “direct action” (i.e. violence, shootings, arson, etc.) against Trump supporters, both at the individual and corporate levels:
In the end, the actual electorate might be split, half truly believing that Trump was elected legally, and half knowing that he was not. It is in this muddied context of legal and political wrangling that we must take action. We cannot wait to see how the chips fall. That will only ensure more power for the violent white supremacist machine that is the Trump administration and its supporters.
Unicoi County, Tennessee, is a dark-red county in a dark-red state. It’s a beautiful, mountainous place with low population density and an even lower probability of spotting a liberal. The place is as ‘conservative’ as anywhere in the country, yet its feckless mayor just extended a countywide face-covering mandate for yet another month. Though you could count the daily coronavirus cases throughout the entire county on one hand, if not a finger or two, reasons cited were – wait for it – ‘schools fully opening’ and ‘flu season.’
I’m only picking on Unicoi because I live nearby and nearly lost my cool when I heard those ‘reasons’ for the extension calmly cited by the radio news guy while I was driving last week. Their cases are so low they can’t even pretend it’s about the ‘rona anymore, so might as well ‘save some lives’ from the flu, right? In other words, there’s a growing set of people in this country who are so in love with their slave gags that they’re willing to mandate them literally forever because hey, ‘it could save a life!’ And this is a RED county, so it’s obviously going to be infinitely worse in Democratic-controlled areas where they’re often required outdoors anywhere outside the home.
Even if masks worked to stop the spread of a highly contagious respiratory virus and had zero negative effects either medically or psychologically, wearing them forever would be a ridiculous stretch. And yet, here we are, in a place where a 5-foot-tall 100-pound woman can literally get arrested for daring to remove her face burqa while sitting outside in the stands with her family at a high school football game in red-state Ohio. You’ve all seen the video by now and yes, I know the whole story. Still, it’s hard to stomach the optics of a giant police officer tasing and handcuffing a woman a third his size for such a ridiculous “offense.”
I’m normally very pro-police, but I also think any law enforcement officer who enforces ANY coronavirus restrictions should seriously rethink their purpose. And what of the people sitting there calmly allowing it to happen? From what the woman shouted as she was being let away, she seemed to have had some sort of understanding that several attendees would commit their civil disobedience together, only to be left twisting in the wind, literally alone.
Indeed, what SHOULD happen in a situation like this? How long will people blindly follow these ridiculous, useless, and unconstitutional mandates? How long should we? What would have happened if everyone in that section of the stands had stood up, Spartacus-style, removed their masks and said “you’re going to have to take us too”? Here’s what happened in Spain last month when police tried to arrest a woman on the street, outside, for not wearing a mask. People chanted in support. Others tossed their COVID diapers off and pulled her away from their grasp. They didn’t attack police, but they didn’t allow them to enforce a tyrannical edict either. It was a beautiful sight to behold.
If this virus had a death rate most people should be seriously concerned about (it doesn’t), if temporary mask usage was really proven to permanently stop the spread of COVID-19 in a serious way (it’s not), if places like California, Peru, Columbia, Spain, and countless others that strictly implemented it immediately saw a serious, lasting decline in cases (they haven’t), then maybe the Mask Nazis would have a case.
If masks worked, after all, their usage would only be TEMPORARY, right? So why are we now in month eight of this insanity? Why are places like Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, and even South Dakota NOT rolling in bodies now that they aren’t embracing universal, forced masking? The mask-cult never even attempts to answer those questions, of course. Their ‘answer’ is always some version of “mask up,” “masks work,” “masks have been proven to stop the spread of COVID-19,” and/or “it’s science!” Just simple Orwellian phrases for frightened, impressionable minds.
9 He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.(2 Thessalonians)
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the US government has been hiding key details about UFO encounters from the public for years.
Reid made the claim in the newly released documentary, The Phenomenon, directed by James Fox, which examines the history of UFO sightings in the US from the 1940s all the way up to this spring’s revelation regarding a Department of Defense probe into unexplained military sightings.
‘Why the federal government all these years has covered up, put brake pads on everything, stopped it, I think it’s very, very bad for our country,’ Reid tells Fox in the film.
When asked if he’s saying there’s still some evidence that hasn’t yet been publicly disclosed, Reid replies: ‘I’m saying most of it hasn’t seen the light of day.’
Reid was among the lawmakers behind classified but since-closed Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), a Defense Department unit devoted solely to investigating unexplained phenomena and aerial encounters from deep within the Pentagon.
Since leaving office in 2017, he has become increasingly outspoken about UFOs. In April, following the Pentagon’s release of three videos taken by US pilots that reportedly show ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’, Reid tweeted: ‘The American people deserve to be informed.’
Reid has, however, stopped short of confirming evidence of other-worldly activity, tweeting in August that he wants the issue studied and that ‘we must stick to science, not fairy tales about little green men.’
Reid stands firm on that point of view in The Phenomenon, telling Fox: ‘Nobody has to agree why it’s there. But should we at least be spending some money to study all these phenomenon? The answer is yes.’
The briefings were centred on sightings, video footage, and radar logs by military pilots of ‘unexplained aerial phenomena’ which seemed to transcend existing flight technology – such as an aircraft with no visible engine at 30,000ft, traveling at hypersonic speed.
Three videos documenting such unexplainable encounters were released by the Pentagon in April, with the footage captured between 2004 and 2015.
Imagine if governments could project massive, realistic holograms into the sky above entire societies, such as the image of a deity significant to a region. Imagine the implications if such a vision started speaking – the words appearing ‘telepathically’ as thoughts directly inside people’s heads. Disturbingly, this scenario may not be science fiction, as the technology for mass deception and psychological manipulation on a major scale has existed for decades.
A similar “phantom city” was seen over China in 2011. In May, 2015 villagers in Dulali, in Lanzai South Ward, Darazo, Africa Local Government of Bauchi State, Nigeria also witnessed a city floating over their village on multiple occasions, replete with cars and emanating mechanical noises – a sight they attributed to Allah.
Such sightings have focused attention on theories that governments may possess the technology to project giant holograms which could be used for wide-scale deception which might now be undergoing testing on unsuspecting citizens to gauge their reactions. This type of capability is sometimes referred to by some theorists as “Project Blue Beam”
While visions of floating cities are explained away by skeptics and authorities as natural meteorological phenomena – and suggestions of holographic projection dismissed as conspiracy theories – would it even be technically possible to project a huge holographic image like that, and would a government even wish to do so? According to research compiled by Truthstream Mediaand presented in the following video, the answer is yes.
According to Truth-stream Media there is compelling evidence that since at least the early 1990s, the US military has been exploring the possibility of creating gigantic holograms that could be used for large-scale deception missions by special operations forces.
They explain that these efforts were reported by the Washington Post in February 1999 who revealed that the US government was considering projecting a depiction of Allah over Baghdad as part of military action to destabilize Saddam’s regime in the first Gulf War.
The Washington Post also reported that a secret program was established in 1994 to pursue holographic technology for psychological operations (PSYOPs) applications, and that projecting “large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the air” was found to be feasible by a military physicist.
COVID cases are on the rise, or so we are told daily by a hysterical media. Newspaper headlines scream panic as this recent U.S.A Today article proclaimed, “COVID-19 cases rising in 39 states – 9 months into the pandemic: We are overwhelmed.”
It’s the American people that are overwhelmed. Nine months into masks and lockdowns, with a presidential election just weeks away, facing a daily barrage of doom and gloom from the media. Are cases really on the rise or are these simply positive tests?
The above article, one of many warns, “A startling nine states setting ominous, seven-day records for infections.” 39 states reported more cases in the last week than they had in the week before.
What exactly is a “case”? The USA Today article doesn’t say. Neither do other articles or cable news doctors and other “experts.” Is a “case” simply a positive test?
The CDC answers this question with a “case definition.” A case is not just a positive test. Instead what is needed is, “Presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence.” Notice the AND, meaning not simply a positive test.
Yet what the media trumpets as “surging cases” are only positive tests. There is no discussion of whether or not any of the individuals with positive tests are showing symptoms or are actually sick with the Chinese flu. Or if they are contagious and needing to be quarantined.
As an analogy, suppose we routinely checked peoples’ blood sugar or blood pressure and called any single high reading as diabetes or hypertension. Imagine testing everyone’s blood sugar after lunch, when it naturally rises, and calling anyone with a reading over 140 a diabetic. We would have a surge in diabetes, yet the vast majority of these individuals are not actually diabetic.
The COVID PCR test is quite sensitive, amplifying any viral particles found in the nose, whether dead or alive, repeatedly until the test is positive. Most of these positive “cases” are neither contagious or symptomatic, as even the New York Times acknowledged.
The more people we test, the more positive tests will result. Nancy Pelosi called for “testing, testing, testing” and that is exactly what we now have. The U.S. is currently performing over a million tests per day, with just under 5 percent coming back positive.
The U.S. is performing 2.87 daily tests per thousand people, far more than most countries. For comparison, Canada is a third lower at 2.09 tests per thousand, France 1.9, Germany 1.87, Australia 1.21, and India 0.82.
More tests mean more positive results, but not necessarily cases of COVID. For example, the U.S. performing 2.87 tests per thousand people compared with Mexico performing 0.08 tests per thousand will yield dramatically different results, showing the U.S. “surging” in cases as the media describes.
This then fuels the false narrative that the U.S. has so many cases of COVID due to the orange man’s ineptitude rather than the orange man ramping up testing, as everyone called for, to a level unmatched by any major country.
Hospitalizations, a measure of disease severity, have been steadily declining since March, with a small bump in mid-summer. They’ve gone from a high of over 3,000 hospitalizations per week last spring, to less than 700 per week now, according to the CDC.
Fears of a surge early last spring lead to only the sickest patients being admitted to the hospital at that time. There are no such concerns now and those hospitalized presently are not as sick, receiving hospital care much earlier in their illness. President Trump’s recent hospitalization with only mild symptoms is an example.
Yet these so-called case surges, in actuality only positive tests, are driving societal policy decisions. New York City is shutting down nine neighborhoods based on a positive test rate of over 3 percent for seven straight days. Yet the country as a whole has a higher test positive rate of 4.9 percent currently.
There is no mention of how many New Yorkers are actually sick or hospitalized, simply positive tests as New York is following Nancy Pelosi’s recommendation of “testing, testing, testing.” In fact, back in July, New York had likely achieved herd immunity based on getting hit hard early in the course of the pandemic. Yet for inexplicable reasons New York is closing down again.
In my state of Colorado, Governor Jared Polis extended the mask mandate for another 30 days due to “a rise in hospitalizations” for the Chinese virus. This extension conveniently goes just past the election.
As Coloradans have been wearing masks for months, it begs the question of whether masks are doing anything if hospitalizations are increasing. Unknown is whether patients are being hospitalized earlier in the disease course given excess hospital capacity compared to last spring.
Colorado reports only a third of critical care ventilators in use, hardly a shortage, and unknown how many of those ventilators are for COVID patients versus the myriad of other conditions requiring ventilator support.
Many schools and businesses remain closed based on positive test numbers. The personal and societal costs mount as many states and cities prefer to keep draconian shut down orders in place long after they have served their purpose of “flattening the curve”.
How many cancer screenings, vaccinations, and other preventative care measures has been delayed over lockdowns, with consequences of undetected disease becoming manifest in years ahead?
Death counts were the metric of choice last April, a constant ticker on cable news shows. Now it’s cases, with no context between positive tests and actual cases.
What’s shameful is that the media, ignorant or uninterested in the facts, deliberately presents a false equivalence between positive tests and cases, all to push a gloom and doom narrative to influence the upcoming election.
Nyiragongo, a volcano on the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, is seeing its lava lake filling at an alarming rate. Volcanologists have wanted the rise in lava levels could spell disaster for nearby communities. Nyiragongo last erupted in 2002, killing 250 people and wiping out 20 percent of neighbouring city Goma. It has a 250-meter-wide lake of lava in its crater, the largest in the world.
Dario Tedesco, volcanologist at Luigi Vanvitelli University of Campania, led an investigation into Nyiragongo’s crater earlier this year to measure the volcano’s lava.
But Mr Tedesco’s team from Goma Volcano Observatory found the lava in the volcano is rising at alarming rate and raising risks it could erupt again.
The team’s analysis predicts the lava will reach peak hazardous levels within four years, but also warned an earthquake could trigger a disaster earlier.
Mr Tedesco, painting a grim picture of the risks posed by Nyiragongo, said: “This is the most dangerous volcano in the world!”
In 2002, Goma saw lava from the volcano pile up at 2 meters Hugh, with it also creating a delta 800 meters wide in nearby Lake Kivu.
The fissures healed after the disaster, but in 2016 the team observed a second vent fountain in the crater of the volcano.
Mr Tedesco observed in February this year the second vent has led to the lava lake rising faster than ever.
The second vent was gushing an estimated 4 cubic meters of lava per second, which the team suggest is enough to fill an Olympic swimming pool every 10 minutes.
Pierre-Yves Burgi, a geophysical modeler at the University of Geneva and part of the Goma Volcano Observatory, said the lava level is effecgtovelu a pressure gauge for the volcano’s internal pressure.
He said the internal pressure of the volcano is well beyond 20 atmoshere’s, which can shatter the flanks and lead to an eruption.
Mr Burgi, writing in Geophysical Research Letters in August, painted a bleak outlook and said: “This situation is unstable. The danger is of a tremor opening up a new fissure.”
Mr Burgi added he expects the lava lake to stop rising within the next few years, with the period of peak danger of eruption for Goma being between 2024 to 2027.
G20 Interfaith Forum Meets This Week To Advance The One World Religion Of Chrislam As Laid Out In The Pope’s Declaration Of Human Fraternity
https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/g20-interfaith-forum-meets-this-week-one-world-religion-of-chrislam-pope-francis-declaration-human-fraternity/ – by Geoffrey Grider October 14, 2020
The Oct. 13-17 G20 interfaith forum was organized online due to the COVID0-19 pandemic. The line-up of the seventh edition of the forum included Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, President of the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue; Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople; representatives from the United Nations, the International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID), the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the World Muslim League, and the European Commission.
As leaders from ten different religious traditions “gathered” through Zoom at an G20 Interfaith Forum hosted in Saudi Arabia, Pope Francis’s Chrislam document on human fraternity had a central place in the discussions.
While the lukewarm Laodicean church slumbers, assembling of the prophesied One World Religion of Chrislam proceeds ahead at full speed. As you read this, right now in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, something called the G20 Interfaith Forum is meeting to discuss how Islam, Judaism and Roman Catholicism can “come together” to create world peace. If there wasn’t so much dust on your King James bible, you would know exactly what I’m talking about.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJB)
WE CALL IT CHRISLAM, the lost world refers to it by various other names like the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, the Declaration of Human Fraternity, the Abraham Accords, but no matter what you call it, you wind up in the same place. 2019 was the year that Chrislam was ratified, codified, fostered and financed, and 2020 is the year that it was adopted by the lost leaders of this world. This is the One World Religion of Chrislam warned about in Revelation, it has begun, it is here. Funny thing, when we first started doing stories on Chrislam ten years ago, people called me a conspiracy theorist, an alarmist, and a purveyor of clickbait. In 2020, everything I told you was coming is now here, and exceeding my original expectations. It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I have a King James bible and I believe what it says. You should try it sometime.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11 (KJB)
Oh, in case you’re wondering, Jesus Christ has not been invited to the G20 Interfaith Forum, He is far too divisive a figure to be included in such an august council of religious leaders, you won’t hear His name one time. But you will hear talk about the “brotherhood of man”, “gender inclusivity”, and the need for “climate justice”. The agenda of Antichrist.

G20 Interfaith Forum urges putting ‘human dignity back at the center’ of global debate
FROM CRUX NOW: “We must put human dignity back at the center and on that pillar build the alternative social structures we need,” said Miguel Ángel Moratinos, High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, directly quoting from Fratelli Tutti, the papal encyclical released Oct. 4.
His words cameduring a high-level summit called the G20 Interfaith Forum ahead of the meeting of the G20 leaders in Riyadh next month, where government leaders from 19 countries and the European Union will gather to discuss international economic cooperation.
The Oct. 13-17 interfaith forum was organized online due to the COVID0-19 pandemic. The line-up of the seventh edition of the forum included Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, President of the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue; Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople; representatives from the United Nations, the International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID), the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the World Muslim League, and the European Commission.
The #G20Interfaith Forum is in full swing this week, hosted virtually from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Follow this account, this hashtag, and the accounts of @KAICIID, @UNAOC, and @IF20Arabic for live updates on each day’s discussions.
KAICIID was founded by Saudi Arabia, Spain and Austria with the Holy See as a Founding Observer Member. It is an effort on behalf of the Islamic world to reach out to other faiths in pursuit of transnational, intercultural, and interreligious dialogue.
“The story of this G20 Interfaith Forum does not begin tonight and end in five days’ time however,” said KAICIID Secretary General Faisal bin Muaammar. “The story began in July, with the first consultation between religious leaders, faith-based experts and policy makers in the Arab Region.”
After this first stage, there were consultations that brought together 500 participants, representing 10 faith traditions in 70 countries on five continents.
The chairman ofthe G20 religious forum explained that the “Road to Riyadh” has wound its way through Asia, North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East in a series of unprecedented consultations on some of the most pressing challenges in the field of human development.
This process tookplace despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, including a wonky internet connection at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting. Regardless, “these consultations have not lacked passion, urgency or direction,” said bin Muaammar.
“We have heard powerful testimony on themes being considered by this Forum – on the effects of climate change, gender inequality, economic imbalance and poor governance,” he said.
The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has a “historical responsibility” ahead of the G20 summit, and the interfaith forum must prepare the stage adequately, he argued, providing a series of recommendations.
“Of course,” Moratinos said, the issues of gender inequality and climate change will be addressed by the leaders of the G20 countries, including the United States, Russia, China, India, South Africa, Mexico, France, Italy, Germany, Japan and Australia. But the “essential” recommendation religious leaders can give political ones, he continued, are on ethics and spirituality, both needed today, when the world is in crisis.
Long before the UN was born, Moratinos acknowledged, different faiths embraced the notion of equal rights for all human beings: “In that sense, it came as no surprise that since the pandemic, we have witnessed how faith-based organizations and their leaders have embodied the principle of leaving no one behind and fighting for social justice, contributing to mobilizing resources and support the hardest to reach.”
“Faith actors have a track record of being on the frontlines when crises hit home,” he said. “In a life-altering crisis, when people are desperate and uprooted from their lives, faith has often been their anchor and the place they turn to for consolation and hope.”
Again quoting the pontiff, Moratinos said that the time for “parallel monologues” is over, and the time has come for a “constructive and sustainable dialogue.”
The critical situationof the world – due to the new coronavirus, the impact of the lockdown on mental health and economies, the rising poverty, unemployment and inequality, are among the things listed by several panelists – implores religious leaders to come together, and this was the core message of the opening session.
In the words of Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, President of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies: “Religion is a great power that can be a bridge. I would love to see religious leaders act as fire brigades to put out fires and save people’s lives wherever they are; they don’t ask ‘how did this fire break out?’ but ‘how can we put it out and prevent it?’”
During his remarks, Ayuso argued that believers of different religious traditions can offer valuable contributions to universal fraternity wherever they are. Quoting the pope, he said that the voices of the powerful and “experts” shouldn’t be the only ones heard in public debate.
“Room needs to be made for reflections born of religious traditions that are the repository of centuries of experience and wisdom,” the cardinal said.
To address the“very dark moment” humanity is going through, Ayuso said, adequate solutions are needed to address the problems of “our existential life,” with the human family coming together in a spirit of friendship, proposing answers to common problems. Religious leaders in particular, he said, need to be a “contagion of hope.”
“Let us then witness to our religious communities as well as to our societies in which we live: Unity, solidarity and fraternity, for bettering our ‘common home,’ as Pope Francis is continuously reminding us all,” Ayuso said. “This is our public responsibility be it political, socio-economical or religious.”
In order to find an adequate “therapy” to end the world crisis and to prevent a new one in the future, it’s necessary to answer Pope Francis’s call to “reaffirm that we are members of the one human family.” READ MORE:
Rick Warren Deceiving His Followers With Chrislam
Rick Warren is seen slyly referring to Pope Francis as “our pope”, and then going on to brag about what a great job he is doing. He wants you to blithely assume that of course Pope Francis is the “spiritual head” over all of Christianity and not simply over the Roman Catholic corporation. He slips it in like that’s what everyone already thinks and believes. This is nothing more than mental conditioning. A bible believing Christian under no circumstances ever would acknowledge that any pope in the Roman system had any sort of rule over them of any kind.

SOULS ARE BEING SAVED ACROSS AMERICA AS THOUSANDS RESPOND FROM ATLANTA WAREHOUSE TO FRESNO TENT REVIVAL
https://endtimeheadlines.org/2020/10/souls-are-being-saved-across-america-as-thousands-respond-from-atlanta-warehouse-to-fresno-tent-revival/ – Oct 14, 2020
(CBN) – Epic worship events took place across the country last weekend where thousands of souls joined together to seek God’s truth while hundreds gave their lives to Christ. Praise leader Sean Feucht brought his “Let Us Worship” tour to Tennessee where massive crowds came out to worship and rejoice.
An estimated 9,000-10,000 people gathered at Public Square Park in downtown Nashville on Sunday as Feucht and his band performed outside the Metro Courthouse. “Music City showed up to enthrone KING JESUS last night on the steps of the courthouse downtown! Incredible to witness how God moved last night!
These are incredible days!” Feucht wrote on Twitter. Worshippers were overcome with emotion and excitement as they celebrated baptisms and salvations together. Despite the challenging weather conditions, thousands more also came out to Feucht’s worship rally on Saturday in Atlanta.
A tornado warning forced the event to relocate from Piedmont Park to an empty warehouse, but that didn’t stop 4,000 men, women, and children from gathering to glorify God. Hearts were on fire with prayer and praise as the Holy Spirit drew more people to repent of their sins. Feucht wrote, “No one is coming for the music!
No one is coming for a brand or a name! People came from Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Carolina, Georgia, and even California…FOR JESUS!!!” The Let Us Worship tour will be in Kansas City, Missouri, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania next weekend. Meanwhile, Mario Murillo Ministries launched the “Living Proof” outreach on Oct. 11 at Granite Park in Fresno, California.FULL REPORT
[To me, the thief on the cross and his salvation, pretty much ends the “works based” salvation (aka “lordship salvation”) issue…Not to mentionJohn 6:28-29 where Jesus was specifically asked this question]
28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”
29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
Luke 23:39-43 records the famous death-bed conversion of the “thief on the cross.” There were seven truths that the repentant thief understood. Studying these truths is important since they are the same realities that all must embrace in order to gain peace with their Creator. These verses say:
One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying,“Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? “And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”
FIRST, the repentant thief recognized the brevity of this life. He understood life’s temporal nature because he was dying. The Bible is clear on the topic of the brevity of this life (Ps 103:15-16; Jas 4:14). Thus, all of us should be concerned regarding what will happen to us when this life ends.
SECOND, the penitent thief understood the reality of the afterlife. In other words, he understood that life after death was just as real as the present life. This understanding explains why the repentant thief spoke with such confidence about Christ’s coming kingdom (verse 42). The Scripture teaches the reality of the afterlife. Because God has designed the soulish or immaterial part of man to live forever (Eccl 3:11), all people will exist forever, either with God in His kingdom or forever separated from Him in a place of conscious torment (Dan 12:2; Matt 25:46).
THIRD, the repentant thief understood his guilt before God. This understanding is evidenced by his statement in verse 41, “And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds.”He obviously understood the reality of his own guilt since in the first-century Roman world, the reason someone was sentenced to hang on a cross was because he had committed a capital offense. However, it is not just those who have committed terrible crimes who are guilty. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” In other words, every member of the human race stands guilty before God because of our sin and our position in the first sinning man, Adam.
FOURTH, the thief on the cross understood the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Verse 40 says, “But the other answered, and rebuking him said, ‘Do you not even fear God?’” Here is an indication that he understood that Jesus Christ was God. Verse 41, in reference to Jesus, he said, “but this man has done nothing wrong.” Thus, perhaps the penitent thief understood something about Christ’s sinless perfection. He recognized that Christ was different than any man he had ever encountered. Of course, this too is a reality that people must understand in order to be saved. Jesus is not one among equals, but the unique God-Man (John 8:58-59; 20:30-31; Rev 19:16).
FIFTH, the thief understood that Christ had the power to save him. Not only did he understand his own guilt, but he also understood that Jesus, this extraordinary Man, could do something to help him with his specific predicament. Thus, in verse 42, he said, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” Jesus not only claimed to be God, but He also claimed to have the ability to help men with their primary problem: their guilt and sin before a Holy God. The solution to this dilemma is found in Christ alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Tim 2:5).
SIXTH, the repentant thief understood that he could not be saved through his own good works or any act of self-righteousness. Self-righteousness means that human beings can do something to merit favour from God. Since this thief was nailed to a cross, what acts of self-righteousness could he do? He could not join a church, do good deeds, or even be baptized. He was in a helpless position. We also are in a similar helpless position since we are incapable of doing any sort of righteous act to merit God’s favour. God sees our acts of self-righteousness as a filthy garment, if we are using them to gain favour from Him (Isa 64:6).
SEVENTH, this thief understood that it is never too late to ask God for salvation. Although he knew that his death was imminent, he still believed it was not too late to cry out to Christ for mercy. Although guilty of a capital crime and dying, he did not believe that it was too late for him to experience divine grace. The thief’s persuasion proved correct as Christ gave him immediate validation of salvation, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise” (vs. 43).
No matter what you have done, or how long you have lived, or how close you are to death, it is never too late to ask God for salvation (2 Cor 6:2b). However, once you die and you pass into the eternal realm, then it is too late (Luke 16:19-31; Heb 9:27).
Do you know these spiritual realities? Do you understand the brevity of this life, the reality of the afterlife, your personal guilt before God, Christ’s uniqueness and power to save you, the impotency of self-righteousness, and that it is not too late to trust Christ for salvation? If so, do what the penitent thief did and trust in Christ alone for your salvation.
JESUS CHRIST RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH IS “IMMINENT”
Matt. 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matt. 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Matt. 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be
DON’T WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE
We are currently in the “Birth Pangs” pending the coming “7 yearTRIBULATION” period, where all the Nations on Earth will be subject to God’s Wrath on an “UNGODLY” World. The Rapture of Jesus Christ Church is “TOTALLY” imminent; And what will follow after that will be massively more devastating that we are seeing right now (Read Revelation Ch 6 – 22) God is trying to get everyone’s attention to the coming Judgments; He does not want “ANYONE” to perish, but all to come to repentance. He loves us, but will not stand idly by and watch the World, (His Creation) turn to sin and debauchery). We are currently living in a fallen “Satanic” World where “EVIL”, is totally accepted, “and God and his Love for his Church”: is being exponentially rejected. The time has come when God HAS TO intervene, and he is (The prophetic word listed in his Word the Bible is being fulfilled exponentially).
THE NEW WORLD ORDER:
ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT – ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM – ONE WORLD RELIGION
Dan. 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate
Dan. 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings
Rev. 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast
