I don’t know about any of you, but my first thought was the damaged Fukushima nuclear facility. I refer to the comment just last week that stated … ‘any minor disturbance could cause the pool of radioactive fuel rods, sitting on the badly damaged 5th floor, to spill out, creating a highly critical world health issue.’ …. I’m sure no one is talking about it … just like before ……… stay tuned on this one.

According to insiders, the mood in the Vatican is ‘apocalyptic’ … This will be very interesting to watch as it unfolds. As some of you know, I believe Rome and the Catholic Church play a major role in end-time prophecy … Revelation 17 to be specific … Also, there was a prophecy by some 11th century seer of the church claiming a specific number of popes, the current one (Benedict) being the next to last ………. I plan to research this more and will get back to you with some specifics, as well as a complete teaching on the Revelation 17 prophecy … the ‘last days’ church.

This is really amazing! … This is the beginning of the “King of the North” positioning itself in a more dominant position in the middle east … Ezekiel 38 tells of Gog of the land of Magog (Russia) leading a coalition of nations against Israel in a major end-time war. These military ventures are just the beginning movements of this soon coming prophecy … stay tuned ….

Joel Rosenberg is whom this article is referring to. He is a best-selling author with more than 2.5 million copies of his books in print. One of his books – “The Last Jihad” – put readers in the cockpit of a hijacked jet on a kamikaze mission into an American city. It was written nine months before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Afterward, U.S. News & World Report described him as a “modern-day Nostradamas.” He also wrote about the U.S. at war in Iraq four months before the war began. …… Is he right this time? I personally think he is. I’ve said for several years now that America will fade back into the ‘pack of nations’ in order for global government to come about. This could not take place with an active superpower ….. How far we will fall…. and how fast? Only time will tell, but it won’t be long …

Near unanimous vote on belief that marriage is “the exclusive union of one man and one woman” and that “all sexual behavior outside of marriage is sinful” …. Wow! … There is at least one church group out there that still believes what the Bible says concerning this controversial subject. …. This is the main reason that I, after a nearly 12 year search, joined a Southern Baptist Church. Although not perfect, they seem to try and follow the scriptures as closely as possible … regardless of the condition or attitude of the surrounding society.

Remember, this is the BIG one ….
Well. that’s it for this week .. and another “fun” one concerning the global economy ….and this last day (21st) ended with much anxiety for almost everyone. America’s stock market dropped 250+ points after looming bank downgrades were announced and the employment situation continuing to not show signs of life. ……. I know we talk about this every week but let’s face it …. this is the catalyst for many of the coming fulfillments of Bible prophecy … not to mention our own lifestyles as we know them. … Once again, I encourage all to get your “spiritual houses” in order. If we are solid with the Lord, then there is nothing too big that we can’t handle.
Thank you all for your continued support, and I encourage each of you to share your views and opinions with me. … And also I ask you to share this website with your friends … I want nothing more than to share the urgency of the times we live in with as many as possible before it is too late ….
Until next time,
