Think the end times are far away? The chip that the FDA approved for human use in 2004Â fits right into ObamacareÂ while the Pope announces plans to dedicate the world to a statue of Mary.
- FDA Approves Computer Chip for Humans10/13/2003 – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday announced $139 million in grants to help make real President Bushâs push for electronic health records for most Americans within a decade. (2014)
” And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in theÂ Â earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:”Â Exodus 20:4
“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”Â Exodus 20:5
Believers in Christ, rejoice!Â “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”Â Our redemption draweth nigh.
Jeremiah 50, Babylon, America, Sodom and Gomorrah
You really need to stop and read Jeremiah 50-51. Â The Lord describes America exactly as she is today. Â For people who deny that America is Babylon, let me ask this; If the description of Babylon matches America, and the actions of Babylon matches the actions of America, even if they were not the same wouldn’t they be judged the same? Â If person A steals one dollar and person B steals one dollar, what does it matter what we call them their judgement is the same!
See how the Lord compares Babylon (America) to Sodom and Gomorrah:
And the King of Babylon met with LGBT leaders in Russia during the G20 summit. Â There was nothing more important going on that you carve out time to meet with gay leaders? Â He doesn’t have time to work on a diplomatic solution to Syria but he has all the time in the world to frolic with gay leaders. Â What do we think the Lord thinks about this?
The Lord is not mocked.
Here is proof positive that ancient Babylon is not being spoken of, but it is America the Lord is describing:
Was ancient Babylon “the hammer of the whole earth?” Â No way, not even close. Â At best ancient Babylon was a major REGIONAL power. Â The Lord gives His hand completely away with this statement. Â Who else is “the hammer of the whole earth” if it is not the United States? Â Who else is going from country to country and overthrowing their governments and killing their people? Â I am just asking, if the shoe fits wear it right?
If ever there was a time to repent and pray for our own forgiveness, our families and all the brothers it is today. Â We must ask the Lord to not hold the sins of Babylon against us. Â If you want to know why I do not vote or get involved with any of Babylon’s politics it is to keep blood off my hands. Â Did Jesus vote? Â Did Jesus get involved with Roman politics? Â Did any of the apostles ever encourage us to “get involved” and “make a difference” through politics? Â No, we were told in no uncertain terms that our kingdom is NOT OF THIS WORLD.
This is not to condemn you if you voted. Â This message is one of separation and holiness before the Lord. Â The blood that is on the hands of con-gress and the king of Babylon must not be on our hands. Â Look at America today and you tell me if it looks like she is ascending to greatness in the world or circling the drain of history? Â What do you see happening with your own eyes? Â What does the Word say about nations that act the way America acts? Â What are the divine consequences for acting the way America acts?
America has the leaders she deserves because the people (that is us, the common man) are corrupt. Â If the people were truly godly and righteous do you think the Lord would allow such depraved men to rule over them? Â No way…..
If someone would have told me four years ago that our nation would make a radical turn toward evil and openly do so, I would never have believed them. I thought I lived in a God-fearing nation. The signs that we thought heralded Christ’s return some time ago actually were the first twinges of the birth pangs – twinges that are quickly progressing into full blown labor.
We appear to have made the final transition to the days of Noah – all that’s missing is for the Nephilim to be seen openly among us. The gay rights agenda, abortions, and the flipping of all things right to all things wrong appears complete. Many churches have forgotten that repentance is a part of salvation, that sin is wrong and that hell awaits those who reject Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. Mega Church Pastors preach feel good sermons and abandon altar calls.Â Christianity has been watered down or, worse, diluted and polluted by the “all gods are good”Â insanity.Â (chrislam anyone?)
The world is gathering, literally, around Israel. Will we soon see Isaiah 17 come to pass? Blood moons portend dark days for the nation created for God’s chosen people. The Word of God tells us that evil will reign for a time near the end. The world becomes increasingly evil – so much so, in fact, that God will ultimately replace both earth and heaven. The current ones will pass away.
No matter what the world around us does, we as believers are to remain strong in Christ. We aren’t of this world – we’re simply temporary dwellers. As the end of the church age draws near, we must maintain our relationship with God and pray for those who don’t yet know Him.
If the generation spoken of in MatthewÂ is 70 years, we’re all about to see how the end times unfold. Israel became a nation in 1948. Add 70 years and you are looking at 2018.Â The world around us certainly appears more than ready to usher in the anti-christ and his agenda. We can take comfort, as always, in God’s words:
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…Luke 21:28
30 Reasons Why I Believe the Rapture will likely take place on March 31/April 1, 2013:
- The Jews crossed the Red Sea at night at the beginning of the 7th day of Unleavened Bread. This foreshadowed the Bride of Christ leaving the world (Egypt) to cross over into their Promised Land and the Sudden Destruction of those left behind. The 7th day of Unleavened Bread starts the evening of March 31, 2013, in Israel. http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/march2013/reneem315-5.htm

“…Iâve been thinking this week about President Obamaâs trip to Israel at the end of this month. As we are all aware, his trip (barring a change in plans) is scheduled to coincide with Nisan 10, the day according to Exodus 12:3 that all Israel is toÂ selectÂ a lambÂ for Passover.Â It is also, the same day Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey on whatÂ isÂ commonly referred to as Palm Sunday and, four days before Pilate would declare, âI find no fault in himâ.Â Â For this reason, given all the Messianic imageryÂ associated with the currentÂ President, there is good cause for those of us who are watching to cast a watchful eye on these dates….(continue)”
While reading Brother D’s latest (below) I clicked on the video link and fast-forwarded to the 20:30 time marker he mentioned. The talk of a peace treaty is, in itself, newsworthy to those of us watching end time events. What really got my attention, however, are 2 claims made by the speaker in the video and in the video title.
The speaker notes that part of what makes this peace treaty a big deal is the fact that with this new technology, not only will they have the power to implement a peace treaty, they’ll also have the power to ENFORCE it.Â The title of the video, “Keshe’s Free Energy Technology Will Make Today’s Military ‘Useless’,” is a bold (and creepy, in light of end-times) claim.
Ever more reason to be in the Word and in the Lord.Â Â Â Sis C.
We live in interesting times, that’s for sure. Â Since we rolled over the calendar into 2013 we’ve seen
1. Â The resignation of the pope which means a new pope incoming, probably the false prophet.
2. Â Lightning strikes the Vatican the same day the pope announced his resignation
2. Â Obama scheduled his first visit as president to Israel
3. Â Earthquakes, earthquakes and more large earthquakes (2 more M6+ quakes today.)
4. Â A Wormwood like strike to Russia. Â The meteor struck with the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs, and guess what? Â It struck with no warning. Â If you look at the videos and pictures we have of this meteor strike it looks alot like this:
10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers
and on the springs of waterâ
I also want you to notice where this star landed….in the water.
The Rapture: Not So Fast
âFor with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, the Lord Himself will descend from heaven, and those who died in Christ will rise first. Afterward we the living who remain, will be caught up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lordâ (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
“Take notice, I am telling you a secret. We shall not all die but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet call. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).
The consensus of thought concerning the mechanics of the rapture in the Christian community holds that believers will disappear instantaneously from the earth, in a moment of time. In one instant we will be present on the earth and in the next instant we will be gone. In one instant Christians will be driving cars, flying airplanes, performing surgery, working on computers, in other words transacting life. In the next instant under this scenario cars will go careening around uncontrollably, planes will drop out of the sky and millions of people will âinstantaneously in a moment of timeâ disappear without a trace.
The verses quoted above do not say that we will disappear from sight âinstantaneouslyâ in the âtwinkling of an eyeâ. The scriptures state that we will be CHANGED in the twinkling of an eye and that we will be âcaught up along with them (the dead in Christ) in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the airâ. The change we go through is a change from the perishable to the imperishable, from mortal to immortal. Now the phrase âcaught upâ is translated from âharpazoâ which means; catch up, take by force, catch away, pluck, pull, to seize and carry off by force, to snatch out or away. While these meanings imply some amount of suddenness, they donât indicate an instantaneous event. To be âcaught upâ could be an observable event. To snatch something out of the way is a quick happening event but it is an observable event.
What does the bible have to say about the process of how others have been taken from this earth to meet the Lord?
“…The more I watch the events unfolding around me the less I think I understand about the timing of the events of Revelation….
Here we go again. Â As we move closer to spring the quakes uptick in strength and frequency. Â This writer sounds like a broken record even to himself. Â If this nobody has the pattern nailed, where are the geologists and news media analysts and government big wigs to take note of this pattern and explain the “why” behind the pattern?
The do not acknowledge it because people might start asking questions that would lead them to the truth. Â The truth is, according to the bible destruction is coming from above. Â Revelation 8 tells us about the trumpetÂ judgmentsÂ that come down on the earth from up above our heads.
Jesus said ‘look up’ when all these things begin to happen. Â He really meant it, look up! Â What is going on up there is affecting down here. Â This spring we will have another mega earthquake somewhere in the world. Â How can we be sure? Â The past 3 years have seen 9.0 or real close to that quakes in Chile, Japan, and in the Pacific ocean. Â Last year we had twin mega-quakes and most people didn’t blink an eye at it because they didn’t cause massive loss of life. Â What will we see this year? Â Only the Lord knows.
Jonathan Cahn Rabbi/Pastor of the Jerusalem Center in Wayne, NJ gives the Keynote Address at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, 1/21/13.
“They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
In this issue of the Last Trumpet Newsletter, we will thoughtfully consider the current path of the human race and the many indicators that this world is undergoing a rapid transformation right before our eyes. Throughout the years of his presidency, Barack Obama has often declared that the United States of America is heading in the “right direction.” However, if a person is willing to make an honest assessment of this world’s present condition, it becomes clear that the situation is not improving but rather growing worse.
New resolutions and fresh starts are associated with the beginning of a New Year. Many people gave great thought to physical resolutions for 2013. How many of us took the time to consider making spiritual ones?Â JRed’s blog, Lookup Fellowship, has both a new look and a new attitude. I love the site’s clean new look. The previous one could be a bit overwhelming at times. But what I like most about the site right now, is the attitude it reflects and the example it sets.
How often do we get so busy with work and home and family and all the “stuff” of life that we neglect our very lifeline? Bloggers, like other writers, tend to be creative and one great thought can inspire many more. It’s easy to get caught up in the creativity of self expression. When this happens, the blog that was once showcased God begins to showcase the blogger.Â (I’m just generalizing hereÂ – no reflection on LUF.)
The blogger (or writer) is the only one who can answer for what appears on the page. Motivations are not always obvious. Nor are allegiances. JRedÂ determined that not only would he continue to showcase God onÂ his blog, he would also remove any content that did not fit his 2013 definition of what LookUp Fellowship should be.
Imagine how much better our walk with Christ could be if we took the time to clean out our spiritual closets, disposing of anything that doesn’t properly reflect the God we know and love and serve, and then made a conscious decision to maintain our focus for the next 365 days.
We are now more than 2 weeks into the New Year. While I did not make any resolutions, I did get my business life cleaned up and organized. It’s high time I spent more time on the spiritual side of my life. I hope that it, like the LUF website, will be clean, fresh and focused when I’m done.
Thank you, JRed, for the reminder and the inspiration.
