      In 2015, I thought we couldn’t get any closer. But since, we have plans for a temple, red heifers, proposed peace plans, and plans for oil pipelines.

      Today, I think we can’t get any closer! But let’s brainstorm what else can happen that will still nudge us along.

      – 2 year old red heifers

      – an actually built temple

      – finished pipeline

      – accepted peace plan

      What else?

      :yahoo:

      The push for the cashless society and tracking everyone is getting stronger … various countries are forcing chip implants on their people.

      Just read they know where the Ark of the Covenant is hidden … safely in one of the chambers underneath the Temple Mount. They don’t want to reveal it just yet .. only when the time is right because they know its going to get the muslims upset and cause war because it proves the Jews have a claim/right to the real estate on the Temple Mount.

      Mega increase in earthquakes

      Stock market on verge of collapse

      Flooding of USA farmland continues … triggering worldwide food shortages in 2020

       

      Keep looking up … Jesus is coming soon! :whistle:

      Earthquakes 3 times normal, flooding in China, India, USA, and all over. A homosexual presidential  candidate that says claims to criticize his homosexuality is the same as criticism  of God. Christian doctor fired for not using transgendered pronouns. Facebook sold all private info only charged 5 Billion  which is only 6 % of this one years profit, not even a slap on the wrist. 50 killed by floods in Nepal. UCLA professor sells missile tech to China. CDC preparing for Ebola, NYC also as Congo migrant surge.  Everyday I read the news I’m amazed we are still here. Poland and Romania prepare for war with Russia as US sends  THADD missile system to aid NATO. Turkey illegal drilling off Cyprus with air, water, military support.  This world is on a fuse ready to go. Dear Father in Heaven show mercy to all your children. Just read a average of ten Christians world wide killed everyday for their faith. At bible study in the 60,s we talked about end times but I truly never thought I see what happens everyday now. Becky I agree in 2015 I thought it was bad and we  could not get any closer , I am left speechless at what has and is happening, come quickly Lord Jesus.   :prayer-hands: :prayer-hands: :prayer-hands:

      Fukushima may be the thing that kills everything in the oceans during the tribulation.  It is doing it now, and when it has killed 30% of everything in the oceans we will be in the first part of the tribulation.  See article below:

        Yikes, the radiation levels are soooo high … the article said it even killed the robots from doing their job.   Ahem … can you imagine how toxic their sushi and other fish meals are?!!!  :wacko:

         

        According to Teaparty247.org

        “At the time, TEPCO said that it would send a robot into the area to survey the full extent of the damage in order to definitively determine whether fuel had leaked outside of the reactor into the surrounding environment.

        The first robot, deployed on Feb. 16, was unable to conduct any meaningful measurements, as the extreme conditions within the reactor forced operators to abandon it within the containment vessel.

        The “scorpion” robot, manufactured by Toshiba, was meant to record images of the reactor’s interior and collect accurate — instead of estimated — data on the levels of radiation within.

        Within three hours of deployment, the device stopped responding to operators despite its stated ability to withstand high levels of radiation. TEPCO has not commented on its new plans to gauge the damage recently uncovered in the reactor in the wake of the robot’s malfunction. When a second robot was sent to investigate, it also failed.”

      I don’t think we need to be here for an actual temple under construction, or a worldwide economic collapse, but who know’s?

      It may not even be the fruition of one last item, but rather a convergence of many issues.  It’s like the “timer” has already been set and is counting down the seconds till eternity appears.

      The politics of man will continue and change on a daily basis, but it seems to me that all the spiritual signposts are in play presently!  As the scriptures alludes to, we wait upon a “fullness of times”
      and themes.  And this concept of “divine determination” is subjective, being only something God himself can determine.  Again another open ended clue demonstrating God’s sovereignty!

      I do anticipate and expect more persecution of the saints here in the U.S. and around the world.  Israel has seen their share of persecution, why wouldn’t we?!  God’s desire has been to spare us, but not Satan!

      I also expect not only creation itself to continue to wreak havoc, but more importantly the animal kingdom as well.  Whether by disease or even by overt and blatant attacks against mankind in general.

      Though life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is under attack, and the sanctity of life continues to be denograted, individual lives will be targeted even unto life!  Or so it seems to me.

      yes, I heard about the UK doctor who got fired for refusing to call a 6 foot tall bearded man “Madam”. Good grief! Christian doctor or not, who can look at a 6 foot tall bearded man and say “Madam”.

      what next? :wacko:

        I think only an A.I. Robot “doctor” could.   B-)    We truly are living in perilous days …

      Nothing new to add, it’s war or rumor of war between US and Russia. Missiles pointing at our country. So what comes first? The economic collapse, the war with Russia, Iran, China, Mexico and the US, pick a country, or the rapture! I vote Rapture :prayer-hands:

      And how about this …

      Steve Forbes letter to Mark Zuckerberg suggesting that he rename the Libra coin … to “the Mark” !   :popcorn

       

      Open Letter To Mark Zuckerberg

      Steve ForbesForbes Staff
      Policy“With all thy getting, get understanding.”

      Dear Mr. Zuckerberg:

      Your company made big headlines when it announced it would be launching a cryptocurrency called the Libra in 2020. Not surprisingly, given the nature of the times, the project has been greeted with intense criticism and skepticism. Don’t lose heart. In one sense, the idea of a company creating its own kind of money is an old one. The airlines’ frequent-flier miles are really a form of money that customers can earn and use to buy trips and various other things. Credit card companies, hotels and numerous retailers have all sorts of loyalty programs in which people earn points that will let them buy all manner of goodies.

      But  if you play your cards right with the Libra, you could be to money and finance what Henry Ford was to automobiles. Your new currency could take its place alongside the inventions of coins and paper money many centuries ago. It could replace the U.S. dollar as the global currency. 

      In one crucial area you’re already light years ahead of virtually all other cryptocurrencies: You realize the fundamental importance of a currency that’s stable in value. Money measures value the way a scale measures weight or a clock measures time. Most cryptos–whose values fluctuate violently from one moment to the next–are great as speculative vehicles, but they’re useless as real money. No one in his right mind would write a contract longer than 24 hours in bitcoin. With cryptocurrencies, it’s steak one day and dog food the next. But if you can invent a truly stable cryptocurrency that can actually be used for day-to-day transactions and for longer-term contracts and investment vehicles, you’ll be a winner.

      Here are crucial tips to turn the Libra into one of history’s truly seminal creations:

      Make it as good as gold. Backing your new money—as you plan to do—with a basket of currencies won’t cut it. In today’s monetary system the values of currencies jump up and down, so you won’t get the stability you need.

      Countries that became global powerhouses–Holland, followed by Britain (Isaac Newton, as director of the Royal Mint, fixed the pound to gold at a ratio that held for more than two centuries) and then the U.S. (thanks to Alexander Hamilton)—all had their currencies linked to gold.
      For a variety of reasons gold holds its intrinsic value better than anything else. It’s like a measuring rod. It no more restricts the money supply than the 12 inches in a foot restricts the size of a building you might wish to construct. All it means is that the Libra will have what no other currency has today: a fixed value. And that fixture will gradually make it the most desirable medium of exchange around the globe. People hunger for trustworthy money.

      Your consultants, like most economists today, will be vociferously opposed to the yellow metal, burdened as they are by ignorance and countless myths and superstitions. This widely shared skepticism will actually be an advantage, as it will keep away well-capitalized imitators.

      To get an accurate assessment of how a gold standard has worked before, read any book by historian/economist Nathan Lewis. You might also look at a book that I co-authored, Money, or the documentary In Money We Trust? that I recently helped produce for public television.

      The Libra will be an unbelievably potent tool for prosperity by encouraging long-term investing. Without putting capital to work productively we stagnate. This is why you should ignore political cries to hold off on moving the Libra forward. If every great breakthrough depended on getting political sign-offs, horses would still be our principal means of transportation. You want the Libra to achieve a critical mass of users as quickly as possible—as Uber and Lyft did with their riders—which will prevent politicians from deep-sixing your invention.

      And, by the way, you might consider changing the Libra’s name. The “Libra” was a measure of weight from the Roman Empire, and we know where that ended up. Don’t be bashful; call it the “Mark.” Germany ditched its mark—which it had been using since it created it after WWII—for the euro 20 years ago, so the name is up for grabs.

      A gold-backed Mark would be a transformative move in the history of money. It would blow bitcoin out of the water and would generate an enthusiastic “Like” from billions of businesses and people, now and forever.

      Sincerely,

      Steve Forbes

        What? I hadn’t heard about the “Mark.” I had to look it up and read it myself on the Forbes site. That’s crazy! Could God really be playing with the names – last “Trump” and the “Mark?” It seems so.

      Isn’t there a super computer nicknamed the “beast”?!  All of these allusions to biblical satanic terms is indeed eye opening.  Just as believers are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of Christ, so too shall Satan seal those not redeemed by God!  Worse yet are those who knowingly and willingly choose Satan over Christ!!!

      Seems like it’s the financial movers and shakers which attempt to forge man’s destiny.  Sadly, they are totally unaware by and large that they are simply but pawns, doing the devil’s bidding!

      I find it amazing that after the Church is raptured and the world is confronted with their rejection of God and the weight of their sins, their defiance will not only continue but their resolve to will be strengthened!

      Now that’s what I call the definition of insanity! Eternal insanity!!!

      So amiss the craziness let me quote a bit of truth,

      Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know the I am GOD. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

      I am so thankful that God Almighty is still on the throne and guiding the affairs of the universe.

      I pray we see him soon face to face in all His Glory. :prayer-hands:

      Exactly Yohanan: any moment now!

      or like Jan Markell said: I am no longer looking for signs, I am listening for a sound, the sound of a trumpet.

      Amen!
