*The Signs of Society
“But mark this:  There will be terrible times in the last
days.  2) People will be lovers of
themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their
parents, ungrateful, unholy,  3) without
love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of the
good, 4) treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of
God …. ”  .. 2 Timothy 3:1-4
In this passage of scripture where Paul is
writing to Timothy, he certainly hit the nail on the head when describing the
godless societal conditions of these last days. …  In fact, these verses clearly sound just like
a typical evening newscast today! … But for the moment, notice the three
things it says people will love in the end times … self, money and pleasure.
David Reagan said it well when he described
it this way …. “The love of self is Humanism — the belief that Man can
accomplish anything on his own. .. The love of money is Materialism. .. When
Humanism is your religion, your god will always be money. .. The love of
pleasure is the third love that is mentioned. .. This is Hedonism, the
lifestyle that is always produced by Humanism and Materialism. …. But God
cannot be mocked (Galations 6:7).  He
therefore sees to it that when people chose Humanism, Materialism, and
Hedonism, the payoff is always Nihilism — which is a fancy philosophical word
for despair.”
When we look around at today’s world, there
is absolutely no doubt that it is wallowing in despair. … Here in
we live in a society plagued with abortion,
homosexuality, domestic violence, child molestation, rampant pornography,
blasphemy, drug & alcohol addiction …. to name just some of them ….. If
we know how to ‘look,’ we can sense and feel the desperation in people today.
Now let’s look at several scriptures which
show what Jesus Himself prophesied concerning the societal conditions of these
final days. … Matthew 24:12 says that “Because of the increase in
wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” …  Anyone in their right mind can see that this
is true! … Lawlessness and violence is now commonplace in the public square.
… Also, in Matthew 24, Mark 13 & Luke 21, Jesus tells us of the increases
in famine & pestilences, of wars and rumors of wars, of increased activity
in earthquakes and other natural disasters. … The ‘Birth Pains,’  which translates to the increase in frequency
and intensity of these events,  mentioned
in verse 8 of Matthew, are certainly provable events that even secular science
can and has documented. …….
Then in verse 9, He (Jesus) talks about how
the persecution of Christians would also increase … “Then you will be
handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all
nations because of me.” …. This is happening right before our eyes!
……. Adding to this, lets for a moment look at Romans 1:18-19 which says
this … “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the
godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19) since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it
plain to them.” … Simply, we are seeing a rapidly increasing amount of
attacks on Jesus, His Church, and the Bible. .. Here in America, we are going
to be forced underground much sooner than most ‘Laodicean’ Christians believe.
… Enjoy your ‘religious freedom’ while you can because it is not going to
last much longer! …
OK .. There’s a lot more scriptural support
for this subject, but these we just reviewed make it extremely clear as to how
and why society as we know it is falling apart. …. Simply, the Bible says
that this is how our societies  will be
just prior to Jesus’ triumphant return. …
Shifting gears just slightly, there seems
to be a word popping up a lot since the recent election here in America .. and
that word is ‘Revival’ …. Several headlines of late have clearly expressed
this notion. .. On November 9th, Joel Rosenberg’s blog said this … “Does
‘Wave Election’ suggest America awakening spiritually? .. Able to avoid
implosion?” …… Then on November 12th, this headline … “Southern
Baptist President calls 46,000 churches to ‘Extraordinary Prayer’ for great
awakening” …. There were several more, but you can get an idea of what
& where I’m going here … while words like ‘Revival’ & ‘Great
Awakening’ are uplifting and desired, other than an occasional ‘hot spot,’ it
will NOT be the case in the big picture. .. The Bible is perfectly clear that
things are going to get much worse before it is over. … In fact Jesus Himself
tells us in Revelation 3:10 … “Since you have kept my command to endure
patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial hat is going to come
upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.” … It’s plain!
.. For those of us who endure these coming difficult days and hold on to our
faith, he will keep us from the final devastation that will fall upon this
whole planet! … He also says in Matthew 24:22 that  “If those days had not been cut short,
no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be
shortened.” … One of the great things about our Lord is that He doesn’t
‘beat around the bush.’ … It’s plain! … All we have to do is read His Word!
Politics and elections are certainly a ‘way
of life’ here in America, and it is not a bad thing to see that some of those
who were elected have values that are more directly in line with the teachings
of the Bible … and praying for revival is also a good thing because many
souls can be claimed for the kingdom before it’s too late, but the only real
hope for America to hold off the increasing onslaught of evil is to invite God
BACK INTO OUR SOCIETY! … That is the only thing that will buy us more time
and allow us to reach out and prepare as many as we can for the prophesied ‘end
of things’ ….
I will close this segment with one more prophecy
from Jesus Christ … “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the
coming of the Son of Man.  38) For in the
days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in
marriage, up to the day Noah entered the Ark; 
39) and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came
and took them all away.  This is how it
will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” 
(Matthew 24:37-39)
The current conditions of today’s society
is sheer proof that we are, in fact, living in the last days … which should
give those of us with faith and understanding a reason to rejoice! … All this
craziness .. these dark days .. are numbered! … The Holy One of God is soon
to come and take the reigns of leadership, and all this sin and havoc will be
forgotten … Hallelujah!
Next week we’ll touch on ‘Spiritual Signs’
… Until then, know that I am praying for each and every one of you .. that
you will experience absolutely no fear in these times. …  John 16:33 says … “In this world you
will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.” …  Just know that the love of Jesus will
surround you  in your time of need. …
Hallelujah! …
Until next time.

*World Net Daily – “Appeals
Court:  States CAN define marriage as 1
man, 1 woman”
Comment from article:  “A three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit
Court of Appeals stunningly affirmed the rights of voters in four states –
Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee – to define marriage as a union of one
man and one woman, throwing a boulder into the millpond of complacent
assumptions by homosexual-rights advocates that same-sex marriage is a given
across the U.S.”
…. Shocking! .. a glimmer of hope?
*The Jerusalem Post – “Hundreds clash

…. All looks so rosy right now — more jobs
— record stock markets — but, sadly, it is all an ill-conceived illusion of
an economy built upon sand … The real numbers show labor participation
(meaning people in the job market) at a 40-year low … and as for the markets,
there is absolutely NOWHERE ELSE for investors to put their money … interest
rates at or near 0 … It’s all a giant ‘bubble’ and a coming storm will
collapse this mirage of stability …

that it will foster more understanding and acceptance between Christians &

this kind of ‘compromise’ will only lead to the demise of this once-Christian
nation! …. Just glance back to Jesus and His disciples for a moment … did

not! … They knew beyond anything else that the truth, and ONLY the truth,

Most every week has been amazing as of
late, but this week’s headlines contain more specific stories relating directly
to Bible prophecy than I can recall! … Let’s review just three HUGE ones that
took place in just one day! 
*November 11 – The Jerusalem Post 
reported that Russia & Iran just signed a ‘Nuclear Construction’
deal. … These are the two ‘main players’ that come against Israel in a
last-days war spoken of by the prophet Ezekiel in chapters 38 & 39 of his
book. … Never before in history, until just recently, did these two nations
even talk to each other, let alone have any sort of relationship. … But it
had to happen in order for this war to take place. … Well, here it is! 
*November 11 – The Telegraph out of the UK reported that technology has
advanced to where ‘Computer Chips’ can now be embedded in hands to store
digital currencies. … look at this scripture …  “He also forced everyone, small and
great, rich and poor, free and slave to receive a mark on his right hand or on
his forehead, 17) so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark,
which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.” (Revelation
… This is exactly the precursor of what
will be forced upon people during the Tribulation in order to function in that
soon-coming society …. Amazing!
*November 11- Reuters, reporting on the China Summit going on right now,
released this amazing headline … “Obama urges China to be partner in
ensuring ‘World Order’ ” ….. This one really sums it all up in a nut
shell … We see America ‘fading back into the pack,’ thereby eliminating any
opposition to the nations of the world coming together to form a ‘global
government’ – or – a ‘new world order’ ….. and how does this relate to Bible
prophecy? … This must take place in order for the coming ‘world leader’ to
step into power! … Once again, we see prophecy exploding right before our
eyes! …..
Now add stuff like America’s continuing
moral and spiritual slide, along with its increasing effort to eliminate God
totally from society ….. seeing the ‘Wars and Rumors of Wars’ prophecies
coming to fruition with increasing intensity
… and finally israel’s continuing
isolation (see Zechariah 12:3) ….. the Trumpet can’t be far off! …. To
spare you a long dissertation as to the urgency of the time that’s left, just
IN ORDER! ….. He is coming .. and soon!
Love you all much … and know that I am
praying for each and every one of you .. and God knows exactly who each of you
are! … Hallelujah! …. These are the times, more than ever, that we must
stick together in prayer and supplication for one another ……..
Until next time,

November 11, 2014
Last week, I kicked off a six-week series
which, upon its completion, will cover six specific topics relating to the prophesies
of these days we are living in. .. I felt it necessary to stretch it out over
an extended time due to the vast array of prophesied events that are now taking
place, and will continue to increase as we draw ever nearer to our Lord’s
triumphant & glorious return. … The six specific topics I decided to
share with you are  … Israel, the Signs
of Nature, the Signs of Society, Spiritual Signs, the Signs of World Politics
& the Signs of Technology. … Last week, we opened up with Israel … now
this week ……
*The Signs of Nature ……
In Matthew 24, Mark 13 & Luke 21, Jesus
Himself prophesied about the coming world ‘conditions’ that would dominate the
days just prior to His Second Coming. .. He said in Luke 21:11,  “And there will be great earthquakes in
various places, and famines and pestilences; 
and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” …
He then went on to say that these ‘conditions’ would be like ‘Birth Pains.’
which simply means that as we draw nearer to His return, all these things would
continue to multiply in both frequency and intensity. .. (see Matthew 24:8) …
 First, let’s look at the definition of
‘Pestilence’ ….. Webster’s Dictionary says this .. 1) a deadly epidemic
disease; plague  2) anything regarded as
harmful ….. 
Before I get started, let me say this. ..
This category of signs has always been the least respected of all, even among
believers. .. Just the mention of them usually receives responses like …
‘Come on, what else is new? .. There has always been earthquakes and tornadoes
and diseases since the beginning of time!’ .. Now while this is true, they have
NEVER been like they are now! .. That is exactly what Jesus implied when He
mentioned ‘Birth Pains’ in His prophecies…. They are increasing, and will
continue to do so until the Trumpet blows …. The Apostle Peter also warned us
of the naysayers in the end times … “Knowing this first:  that scoffers will come in the last days,
walking according to their own lusts, 4) and saying, ‘Where is the promise of
His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were
from the beginning of creation.’ ” 
(2 Peter 3:3-4)  … Think there’s
scoffers around today? …..
OK, let’s get going. .. I’ve broken this
subject down to just a few categories so as to keep it somewhat sane in length.
… The first one is ….
*Weather .. ….. I’ll go back just four
years to give you just a quick glimpse …
-2010 — Reuters said .. “This was the year the earth struck
back” … ‘Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons,
blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people,
the deadliest year in a generation.’ … A FEMA rep said this .. ‘It just
seemed like it was back-to-back and it came in waves.  The term ‘100-year event’ really lost its
meaning this year.’ …
-2011 — Associated Press said .. “Disasters in US:  An extreme and exhausting year” …
‘Nature is pummeling the US this year with extremes.  Unprecedented triple-digit heat and
devastating drought.  Deadly tornadoes
leveling towns.  Massive rivers
overflowing.  A billion-dollar blizzard.  If what is falling from the sky isn’t enough,
the ground shook in places that normally seem stable; Colorado and the entire
East Coast.’
   -2012 — Associated Press said,  “Something is frighteningly wrong with
the weather” … Hottest year on record in US … Record snowfall and rain
… Hurricane Sandy, largest known in history … Super Typhoon Bofa killed
2000 and left nearly a million homeless … and on & on …
-2013 — World Net Daily said, 
“Another Apocalyptic Weather Year” … Largest & most
damaging tornado outbreak in history in US … Central Europe flooding hits
all-time record … Record monsoon flooding, 23 inches in one day, villages
washed away … Worst US fire season in history … and on & on …
-2014 — We are still in it, but already we have seen record
temperatures in both extremes, high & low … The year started out with a
Polar Vortex that totally froze two-thirds of the nation … and as of this
writing, Super Typhoon Nuri, which stuck japan just a few days ago is now
creating the largest vortex on record in the Arctic, and is right now beginning
its descent upon Canada and the US. … Weather experts are expecting many,
many records to fall before it is over …. 
*Earthquakes & Volcanoes ….. A known
fact .. Earthquakes of a magnitude 6 or more have quadrupled in the last two
decades. .. What was normal before that was maybe one or two 6+ quakes in a
month. .. Now we get at least that almost every single week! … A few examples
-2004 – 9.1 off Indonesia coast created a Tsunami that killed 230,000
people in a dozen countries …
-2005 – 7.6 killed 80,000 in NW Pakistan & Kashmir …
-2008 – 7.9 in China killed 87,000 …
-2010 – 7.0 hit Haiti’s capital and surrounding cities, killing 314,000
people ,,,
-2011 – 9.0 off NE Japan’s coast killed 19,000 and created a Tsunami
that triggered the Fukushima 
                 radiation disaster …
As for Volcanoes, they have increased
5-fold in the past decade, with two super volcanoes showing signs of life …
Yellowstone & Bardarbunga (Iceland) … 
*Drought ….. Brad MacDonald said this
…. “Historic, unrelenting drought is slowly, painfully, tightening its
grip on the U.S.. Many people are feeling the effects – but too few realize how
desperate the situation really is.  But
have you contemplated what this epic event means, not just for America, but for
the world? .. To people in wealthier nations, drought simply means hot weather,
parched lawns and plants, and perhaps a higher-than-normal electric bill.  A lack of rain is an annoyance.  It’s like an itch, uncomfortable and
irritating, but easily mitigated.  Few
consider drought to be catastrophic, even fatal. … But severe, prolonged
drought, the kind that seems to be confronting America, is catastrophic – as
catastrophic as financial and political meltdown, or mass social unrest and
violence, or even large-scale war that kills tens of thousands.  In fact, under the right conditions, a lack
of rain can actually cause all these things.”
We know for a fact that many places in the
world are seeing increasingly devastating drought conditions right now …
South America .. India .. areas of China … and here at home, just look at
California. … The whole state is now considered to be in an ‘extreme’ drought
condition! … Most don’t realize it, but California is the world’s 7th-largest
economy and produces much of the world’s food supply. … Its drought alone
will affect millions upon millions of people!
*Famine ….. A Spanish proverb says this
… “Civilization and anarchy are only seven meals apart.”
The following is a vision from an anonymous
source … “I’m standing on a vast plain, looking to the horizon.  It begins to blur;  a bloom of dust rises up.  Billowing with particles of dry, earthen
debris, a dust cloud sweeps across the land in great rolling waves.  It is coming toward me.  I begin to see something inside it: a vague
figure.  Flecks of dust land on my
eyelashes.  Suddenly the figure explodes
out of the cloud – a black horse carrying a skeletal rider holding a pair of
scales.  I turn to flee, but I’m
overrun.  The cloud covers me in dry,
choking blackness.  I see, and feel, only
a dark tempest.
“The cloud gradually becomes lighter,
and I can see light from the sun again. 
I can gradually discern the landscape around me again.  But what I see is terrifying.  The trees are stripped bare of their
leaves.  There is no grass.  The water in the streams and watering holes
are sand., fringed with the dry bones of animals.  The lushness of the farmland has been
completely denuded.  There are people
here – only a few.  But there is a
commotion among them.  They are fighting
over what seems to be a small loaf of bread. 
I begin to feel hungry.”
“And when he had opened the third
seal, I heard the third beast say,  ‘Come
and see.’  And I beheld, and lo a black
horse;  and he that sat on him had a pair
of balances in his hand.  And I heard a
voice in the midst of the four beasts say, ‘A measure of wheat for a penny, and
see that thou hurt not the oil and the wine.’ “
(Revelation 6:5-6) …
Poor harvests, breakdowns in food
production and distribution, dwindling supplies, economic collapse that shuts
down commerce and the free flow of necessary commodities – all these
conditions, and the woes that follow, are prophesied to besiege our world! …
Prophecy says so!
*Disease … Headlines like this seem the
norm nowadays … “Antibiotic-resistance threatens global plague”
… Because this is getting long, I’ll be
brief here … Already just this year, we have seen the H1N1 virus sweep the
country last January … a ‘nightmare’ bacteria strike Illinois in February …
H7N9 struck China and other areas … MERS … Enterovirus …
antibiotic-resistant MRSA ‘super-bug hit US hospitals … and of course, the
Ebola issue going on right now with fears of it evolving into a pandemic ….
*Signs in the sun, moon and stars (Luke
21:25) … In August of 2011, NOAA predicted severe ‘solar storm’ possibilities
for the coming decade. … Since that time, we have seen many X-class flares
being emitted from the sun’s surface. .. Fortunately, none have hit us, so far
anyway. … 2012 saw the closest ‘near miss’ .. scientists say that if that
flare would have been a direct hit, it would have shut down most all
communications and power grids on the earth, which basically is saying that it
would be ‘over’ for civilization as we know it! ….
Also, to add to this mix, we are now in the
midst of a ‘Blood Moon’ cycle. … This, of course, relates directly to the
sun, moon and earth cycles, or eclipses in a certain sequence, which, from
looking at past history as it relates to Israel and Jewish holidays, has had
severe consequences. … At the same time, we are also in a 7-year ‘Shemitah’
cycle which also relates to certain Jewish holidays. … The ‘Shemitah cycle
has, according to the research of Jonathon Cahn, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi, has
caused severe economic consequences for the US and beyond. … So what does it
have to do with the sun, moon and stars? .. It is all part of the ‘cycle’ of
time, which relates directly to the patterns of the cosmos. … We also know
that worldwide economic chaos could trigger the event that causes society as we
know it to fall, making room for the coming world government and its leader,
the anti-christ. … Soon we will see how it all plays out.  ……
OK … I’ve gone too long already, but you
can’t even imagine what I’ve eliminated just to get to where we are right now
… Thanks in advance for your patience …..
I will close with this …. “One
doesn’t have to listen too hard to hear the distant hoofbeats if attuned to the
issues and events of our time in a biblically prophetic way.  The Horsemen of the Apocalypse outlined in
Revelation chapter 6 are mounted.  The
world can’t yet see them upon looking across the terrain littered with the
hills and valleys of everyday life.  But
the spiritual ear can hear them rumbling beyond the immediacy of these quickly
waning days of the age.”  (Terry –
Rapture Ready)
I can hear the hoofbeats and they are
getting louder by the moment! … It is time for all of us to ‘get our houses
in order’ .. to attend to the business that needs to be done before the trumpet
blows. … I am praying earnestly for each of you to ‘tune your ears in’ and
listen. … You, too will hear the hoofbeats! … IT IS TIME!
Until next time,
