"Israel Warns of Pre-emptive Strike?"

The Iranian Nuke Deal collapsed on Monday, so world leaders gave the regime another 7 months to run out the clock.

Meanwhile, our old pal Khomeini vowed (yet again) to wipe Israel off the map.Israel, not one to take threats lying down, is hinting at a pre-emptive strike. For instance, The Jerusalem Post ran a provocative headline in Tuesday's edition:

"Cornered, but unbound by nuclear pact, Israel reconsiders military action against Iran."

 And then Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview on ABC's This Week:
"Israel will always reserve the right to defend itself against any threat with its own power."
And in regards to the failed nuclear agreement? Netanyahu said that "no nuclear deal with Iran is preferable to a bad deal that will endanger Israel, the Middle East and the entire world." Link to Reuters News article.

Beginning with the restoration of the nation of Israel in 1948 (prophesied in Ez. 37:21), a chain of events has been set in motion in the Middle East. Since that time, with little or no fanfare, the world has been quietly lining-up to fulfill the rest of Bible prophecy through:

  • technological advances
  • the Arab Spring/ Middle East power re-alignment
  • a weakening US
  • resuscitation of  Russia / Cold War
  • increased global anti-Semitism
  • renewed fervor to build a 3rd Jewish temple on the Temple Mount (which the Bible clearly indicates will be standing during the Tribulation period: 2nd Thess. 2:1-17, Matt. 24:15, Dan. 9:27, Rev. 11:1-2).
The Bible makes it clear that Iran will join forces with Russia and attack Israel (Ez. 38 & 39). Keep in mind that up until recently, a military alliance between Iran and Russia seemed impossible because they've been enemies for 2,500 years. 

What the Bible doesn't say is what triggers the attack. 

Could the threat of a pre-emptive strike by Israel on Iran boomerang?
"A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be lying in peace after her recovery from war and after the return of her people from many lands. You and all your allies--a vast and awesome horde--will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud" --Ez. 38:8-9.
A wise man once said: "There are few countries which have played so central a role in world history as the Land of Israel" -- David Ben Gurion, the first Prime Minister of the Jewish State

"Does the Bible Predict the Future?"

Move over George Orwell and make room for the new kid on the block--Emilott Lantz.

Who's Emilott Lantz, you ask? A 25-year old woman (read guinea pig) from northern Sweden who was among the first of her peers to have a microchip inserted into her right hand.

Lantz attended a futuristic conference in Stockholm last week where "participants were offered to get a microchip fitted for free--an opportunity Lantz jumped at," according to "The Local", Sweden's News in English.

"I don't feel as though this is the future--this is the present. To me, it's weird that we haven't seen this sooner," Lantz said.

A growing trend in Sweden, micro chipping humans is not without controversy.

"The technology isn't new, but the subject becomes sensitive just because it's in the human body," says Lantz. "I'm not surprised that people think it's a big deal--it's not that common yet, but I think it will be. We're already modifying our bodies. Why should this be different?"

As tiny as a grain of rice, implantable RFID microchips are capable of holding all our personal data without the fear it can be lost or stolen, not to mention the convenience of having this info at our fingertips:

  • medical / health / allergy records
  • financial / banking / credit / debit capabilities
  • keyless entry for our cars, homes, office
And to top it off? They can track you. No more lost / stolen children or wandering elderly.

Never happen, you say? People value their privacy too much too ever accept an implantable data system equipped with GPS?

Well, if you own a cellphone, you're carrying an RFID chip that can track your every move right now. How long before the inconvenience of not  being chipped "forces" us to consider it?

Face it, people. The future (as predicted in the Bible) is almost upon us.

"He required everyone--great and small, rich and poor, slave and free--to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. Wisdom is needed to understand this. Let the one who has understanding solve the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is '666'." -- Revelation 13:16-18

A wise man once said: "It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."  --Albert Einstein

"Is Russia Planning a Sneak Attack?"

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has something new to worry about--Russian hackers.

That's right, folks. It seems the Russians are the most likely suspects behind a destructive "Trojan horse" malware program recently discovered in critical US software and is poised to cause an economic catastrophe," says DHS. 

Forget economics. This bug means the Russians now have the power to bring down our:

  • electrical power grid
  • nuclear power plants
  • water distribution / filtration systems
  • oil / gas pipelines
Bring down any one of these and the US is in a heap of trouble.

National Security sources told ABC News "there is evidence that the malware was inserted by hackers believed to be sponsored by the Russian government, and is a very serious threat."

Ya think?

DHS sources told ABC News "they think this is no random attack and they fear that the Russians have torn a page from the old, Cold War playbook, and have placed the malware in key US systems as a threat      and / or as a deterrent to a US cyber-attack on Russian systems--mutually-assured destruction."  Link to ABC News: Trojan Horse Bug

Wait a minute. This Cold War strategy of "mutually-assured destruction "only works if it's mutual.
Better start praying we've got a "Trojan horse" of our own in this race. If we don't, the only "assured destruction" will be our own.

"And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don't panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won't follow immediately."  Matthew 24:6 NLT

A wise man once said: "The Cold War isn't thawing; it is burning with a deadly heat. Communism isn't sleeping; it is always plotting, scheming, working, fighting."  -- US President Richard M. Nixon

"Warren Pollock: 'Things are about to come unglued!'"

Trends analyst Warren Pollock paints such a grim picture for our future, the temptation to blow him off is natural.

The problem? He's got an impressive track record: predicting the 2008 Market crash and the money printing (QE) that followed.

A former Wall Street CEO, Pollock's a multi-faceted analyst specializing in:

  • finance
  • geo-politics
  • earth changes
  • major world trends
Now he's predicting things will become "surreal" around the end of 2015 and warning against the human tendency to rationalize and ignore the warning signs:
"Imagine you are standing in Pompeii just before this volcano is about to explode. All the people around you are saying this volcano is not going to be a problem for us. That's rationalization and dissonance. That's what's happening right now. That's why people are still talking about the economy, even though the bomb of the economy has gone off."
 Pollock believes, in essence, the books are hopelessly cooked in terms of the global economy and the government is doing everything possible to stop things from coming "unglued:"

"They are doing this on a day-to-day basis, and the moment they stop...things will become unhinged or unglued. I can assure you, the next President of the United States, whether Republican or Democrat, will be known as a great failure. He or she will be held responsible for the total decline of the United States."
"So, people right now are in Pompeii, the volcano is about to far as humankind is concerned, I think we are at the end of an age in a long cycle..."
Let's face it gang.

Pollock, as a secular worldwide trends analyst, is unknowingly agreeing with the biblical end-time scenario. At least in part. This video on USA has many more details.

The Bible lays out the entire plan:
"The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants--things which must shortly take place." --Revelation 1:1
A wise man once said: "The phrase 'must shortly take place' is an allusion to Daniel 2:28, 29, 45, since shortly seems to indicate that the things that must come to pass in the last days will take place in quick succession. John is the human writer of Revelation, whereas Jesus is the divine Author." -- Barry J. Beitzel, PhD.

"These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold--and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world."  1 Peter 1:7 NLT
