2011 . . . IN REVIEW
Consider the ' major events ' of 2011 & the unmistakable links with ' Bible Prophecies ' clearly proving the truth of God's Word & heralding God's coming judgments on mankind & the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
MASS BIRD & FISH DEATHS ( WORLD-WIDE )
2011 commenced with a mysterious series of ' Mass Deaths ' around the globe of various species of birds & fish. Scientists & environmental experts alike , have been unable to explain the reason for these bizarre mass die-offs - unprecedented in their size & scale - were widespread over more than 12 nations world-wide. The Bible explains these mysterious phenomena are a ' fore-warning ' of bigger apocalyptic events to come.
Can ' A BIRD FALL ' in a snare upon the earth , where NO GIN [ trap ] is for him ?
Shall one take up a snare from the earth & have taken nothing at all ?
Shall a TRUMPET be blown in the city [ as a ' Warning ' ] & the people not be afraid ?
Shall there be EVIL in a city [ as ' punishment ' ] & the LORD hath not done it ?
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing , but HE REVEALETH HIS SECRET unto his servants the prophets - Amos 3v5-7
' ARAB SPRING ' UPRISINGS
Unprecedented in 6,000+ yrs of Arab history , the Arab Spring is a wave of revolutionary protests , uprisings & civil wars that have swept the Middle East like a ' tsunami '. Since beginning in Tunisia in Dec' 2010 , the Arab world has been in turmoil , with strife & violence sweeping 15 nations , creating ' political earthquakes ' & overthrowing govts in 4 nations to date. Two verses in the Bible provide a complete history & description of the Arab nations & their role in God's plan :
The angel of the LORD said unto her , Behold , thou art with child & shalt bear A SON & shalt call his name ISHMAEL [ Fore- father of Arab peoples ] He will be a WILD MAN ; his hand will be against every man & every man's hand against him & he shall dwell in the presence of ALL his brethren. As for ISHMAEL , behold , I have blessed him & will make him
' fruitful ' & will ' multiply him ' exceedingly . . . & I will make him a great nation. But ' my covenant ' will I establish with Isaac [ Jews ] - Genesis 16v11-12 , 17v20-21
AUSTRALIAN RECORD FLOODS
ln January 2011 , Australia experienced its worst ever recorded flooding when the states of Queensland & Victoria were hit by massive floods covering land masses greater than the area of Germany & France combined. Affecting over 250,000 people , the floods wreaked havoc on Australian industries & significantly impacted the national economy.
[ God ] spared not the old world , but saved Noah the eighth person , a preacher of righteousness , bringing in THE FLOOD upon the world of the ungodly & turning the cities of Sodom & Gomorrha into ashes , condemned them with an overthrow , making them AN EXAMPLE unto THOSE that ' AFTER ' should live ungodly - 2 Peter 2v5-6
DEEPENING EURO-ZONE CRISIS
The dark specter of the ' biggest mass default in history ' loomed large. A collapse some call " Euro-geddon " that would bring unimaginable consequences around the globe. Euro officials held ' crisis talks ' to rescue the Euro currency & stave off a financial meltdown , the only option - a ' radical overhaul ' to move the EU towards a single central govt enforcing political & economic rules for a reduced number of core EU nations - creating a new Euro " super-state ". This would be a direct fulfillment of Bible Prophecy which speaks of a latter day kingdom being partly " strong " (Germany-France) & partly "weak" (Greece-Italy-Spain etc.) . . . but ultimately failing
The kingdom [ Euro Union ] shall be ' divided ' but there shall be IN IT of the strength of the IRON [ Holy Roman Empire ] & as the toes of the feet were part of IRON [ Roman Catholicism ] & part of CLAY [ Socialism ] , so the kingdom [ Euro Union ] shall be partly STRONG & partly BROKEN . . . but they shall NOT cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. In the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up ' a kingdom ' which shall never be destroyed & the kingdom shall not be left to other people but it shall break in pieces & consume all these kingdoms & it shall stand FOREVER - Daniel 2v41-44
BRAZIL - FLOODS / LANDSLIDES
In December 2010 , Brazil became ' the first nation ' to controversially recognize an independent Palestinian State - just ' one month ' later - Brazil suffered its ' worst ever ' natural disaster from extensive flooding & landslides with over 560 people killed. Could this be merely a co-incidence - or - an ominous warning to those who seek to delegitamise God's chosen people , Israel ??
The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth , for the LORD will bring CHARGES AGAINST THE NATIONS [ as all nations move against Israel ] He will bring judgment on ALL MANKIND & put the wicked to the sword " declares the LORD. This is what the LORD Almighty says " Look ! DISASTER is spreading FROM NATION to NATION ; A MIGHTY STORM is rising from THE ENDS OF THE EARTH " - Jeremiah 25v31-33 ( Amplified Version )
As the ' Arab Spring ' uprisings & turmoil gathered pace & spread , Egypt endured weeks of demonstrations & mass protests before the outbreak of violence on the streets. Raging battles between anti-govt protestors & govt. forces continued for weeks as ' Egyptians fought Egyptians ' in the first time in 6,000 years. By Feb'11th , President Mubarak's govt. fell ceding power to the military to avoid a revolutionary bloodbath. In ' exact fulfillment ' of Bible Prophecy , Egypt soon fell under the control of a radical & brutal new dictator - the Muslim's Brotherhood's Muhammad Morsi.
I will set the EGYPTIANS against the EGYPTIANS & they shall fight every one against his brother & every one against his neighbour ; city against city & kingdom against kingdom. The spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof & I will destroy the counsel thereof : The Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a CRUEL LORD & a FIERCE KING shall rule over them , saith the Lord - Isaiah 19v2-4
CHRIST-CHURCH (NZ) EARTHQUAKES
In 2011 , one of New Zealand's largest cities ' Christ-church ' endured over 7,500+ earthquakes including 2 massive earthquakes within 5 months. After it was rocked by a 7.1mg earthquake in September 2010 , a deadly 6.3mg quake struck on Feb 26th 2011 killing 182 people & largely destroying the city center of Christchurch. It was NZ's deadliest disaster since 1931 & the most destructive ' ever '. New Zealand is also a strong proponent of a ' 2-state solution ' to divide Israel. Of 2.5 million cities world-wide , significantly it is ' CHRISTchurch ' which has been racked by ' thousands ' of earthquakes . . . What are the odds ??? Quite simply , its a warning to HIS church ' to prepare ' for His coming !!!
He [ Jesus ] unto them , Nation shall rise against nation & kingdom against kingdom & ' GREAT EARTHQUAKES ' shall
be in divers places & famines & pestilences & fearful sights & great ' signs ' shall there be from heaven - Luke 21v10-11
JAPAN - EARTHQUAKE / TSUNAMI / NUCLEAR DISASTER
Consider this . . . .
11th March 2010 - Japanese Govt issues ' international condemnation ' of Israel concerning its activity in the disputed territories of East Jerusalem & West Bank , actually ' demanding ' Israel reverse it's policy concerning the Palestinians
. . . . then ' EXACTLY ' ONE YEAR LATER ( ' to the exact day ' ) >>>
11th March 2011 - A massive 9.0 magnitude Mega-Quake hits Japan's east coast triggering an apocalyptic tsunami killing 20,000 - 25,000 people. The destruction caused multiple nuclear meltdowns in the Fukishima Nuclear Facility creating a third disaster. Could this just be ' co-incidence ' - or - a dramatic fulfillent of God's Word ??? This historically unprecedented ' triple catastrophe ' was a fore-warning & a fore-taste of God's judgments coming upon mankind
I will bless them that bless thee & CURSE HIM that CURSETH THEE [ Israel ] & in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed
CURSED BE EVERY ONE that CURSETH THEE [ Israel ] & blessed be he that blesseth thee. - Genesis 12v3 & 27v29
ROYAL WEDDING ( UK )
With a global audience of over 2 Billion people ( 1/3 earth's population ) a resurgent British Royal Family rose from the ashes of scandal & dysfunction of the preceding 25 years , to mesmerize a world-wide audience. Widely applauded as a stunning , glamorous & flawless event , the Royal marriage ceremony was a small foretaste of the ' ultimate wedding ' ( coming v.soon ) as the ' true bridegroom ' ( Christ ) will soon return to take ' his bride ' ( faithful believers )
Let us be glad & rejoice & give honour to him : for the MARRIAGE of the Lamb is come & his wife hath made herself ready
And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen , clean & white : for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints
Blessed are they which are called unto the MARRIAGE of the Lamb. - Revelation 19v7-9
SUPER TORNADOES ( USA )
In April & May 2011 the United States endured a cataclysmic series of Tornado ' Super-Outbreaks '. On April 14-16 over 178 tornadoes ripped across 16 states killing 43 people. Two weeks later , on April 25-28 the largest Tornado outbreak ' ever recorded ' of 358 tornadoes tore across 21 states from Texas to New York , killing 348 people. Finally , between May 21-26 within just ' hours ' of US President Obama's speech , calling for Israel to be ' divided ' & returned to pre-1967 borders - a third outbreak - including a massive multi-vortex tornado devastated Joplin ( Missouri ) & surrounding regions , killing over 200 people.
Ye shall be my people [ Israel ] & I will be your God. Behold , THE WHIRLWIND of the LORD goeth forth with fury , a CONTINUING WHIRLWIND : it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return ,
until He have done IT & until He have performed the intents of His heart : in THE LATTER DAYS ye shall consider it
- Jeremiah 30v22-24
ICELAND VOLCANO ERUPTION
On 21st May 2011 , Iceland's Grimsvotn Volcano erupted on a huge scale. After the fiery eruption , an enormous plume of smoke & ash was ejected 20km into the sky. The ash cloud forced the closure of the main international airport threatening a repeat of the massive 2010 shutdown of the European Air-Traffic corridors. Not only did the volcanic ash ' darken the sun ' , but in the days after Grimsvotn's eruption . the haze of ash clouds ( transported around the northern hemisphere by high altitude jet-streams ) created spectacular hues to sunrises / sunsets & the moon alike.
I will shew ' WONDERS ' in the heavens & in the earth , blood & FIRE & PILLARS OF SMOKE. The sun shall be turned into darkness & the moon into blood , before the great & the terrible Day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass , that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered : for in Mount Zion & in Jerusalem shall be deliverance , as the LORD hath said - Joel 2v30-32
' BLOOD MOON ' LUNAR ECLIPSE
In the longest lunar eclipse for 11 years , millions of people around the globe in Europe , Russia , Middle East , Asia & Australia witnessed this rare astronomical event. The vivid ' BLOOD RED ' coloring was a ' direct result ' of the volcanic ash in the atmosphere from the Grimsvotn Volcano eruption in Iceland. Noting , the ' Blood Red Moon ' would ' NOT ' have happened without the volcano eruption , we see the stunning accuracy of these Bible prophecies in Joel & Acts which foretold in ' precise detail ' these amazing events & ' fore-warned ' mankind of the coming Day of the Lord
I will shew ' WONDERS ' in HEAVEN ABOVE & in the earth beneath ; blood & ' fire ' & ' vapour of smoke ' :
The SUN shall be turned into darkness & THE MOON INTO BLOOD , before that great & the notable Day of the Lord come : And it shall come to pass , that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved - Acts 2v19-21
MILITARY MADNESS IN MIDDLE EAST
The Middle East is a volatile powder-keg , awash with weaponry , & ready to explode. With tensions over Iran , Syria & the aftermath of the ' Arab Spring ' - nations including Saudi Arabia , Israel , Syria , UAE , Qatar , Kuwait , Bahrain & the Palestinians in Gaza are buying up , smuggling in & amassing massive stockpiles of weapons ( worth billions of dollars ) in readiness , as nervous nations prepare for the nightmare of an impending regional war. Similarly , USA & Russia as world superpowers repositioned their naval battle groups & military installations in the region in a return to the US-Soviet cold-war. Its just as the Bible says , as God will gather ALL NATIONS around Jerusalem to battle . . .
Proclaim ye THIS among the Gentiles [ nations ] ; PREPARE WAR , wake up the mighty men , let all the men of war draw near let them come up : Beat you plowshares into swords & your pruninghooks into spears : let the weak say , I AM STRONG. Assemble yourselves & come all ye heathen [ nations ] & gather yourselves together round about : Let the heathen be wakened & come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat : for there will I sit to judge all the heathen [ nations ] round about , for their wickedness is great. Multitudes , multitudes in the valley of decision for THE DAY OF THE LORD is near - Joel 3v2-14
CHILEAN VOLCANO ERUPTION / ASH CLOUDS
Following the spectacular eruption of Chile's Puyehue Volcano , the ash clouds spewing from this eruption moved around the entire globe , forcing closure of airports throughout the southern hemisphere , namely in South America , South Africa , Australia & New Zealand. The blanket of ash clouds hung over the southern hemisphere for a fortnight , blocking out daylight & bringing massive disruption to air-traffic around the globe.
I will shew ' WONDERS ' in the heavens & in the earth , blood , FIRE & PILLARS OF SMOKE. The SUN shall be
TURNED INTO DARKNESS & the moon into blood , BEFORE the great & the terrible day of the LORD come.
And it shall come to pass , that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered :
for in Mount Zion & in Jerusalem shall be deliverance as the LORD hath said. - Joel 2v30-32
DEADLY E.COLI OUTBREAK ( EUROPE )
In a frightening development that paralysed the economies across Europe , a new mutant strain of e.coli threatened to be the world's biggest ever outbreak of this virulent bacterial infection & was unprecedented in its scale & severity. The bacteria was largely resistant to anit-biotics & affected more that 1,600 people , causing Russia to ban imports of all fresh produce from Europe & cost European economies billions of dollars.
Ye shall hear of wars & rumours : see that ye be not troubled : for all these things must come to pass
but THE END is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation & kingdom against kingdom & there shall be famines
& ' PESTILENCES ' & earthquakes in divers places - Luke 21v10-11
USA's RECORD HEATWAVES & DROUGHT
The bizarre series of natural disasters experienced by the USA in 2011 continued , as eastern states experienced searing heatwaves & drought with over 220 heat records tumbling & more than 22 deaths recorded. It came ' coincidently ' as the Obama Administration continued to isolate Israel by its support & advocation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders.
For I am with thee [ Israel ] , saith the LORD , to save thee : to save thee [ Israel ] : though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee , yet will I not make a full end of thee [ Israel ] but I will correct thee in measure & will not leave thee altogether unpunished. For thus saith the LORD , Thy bruise is incurable & thy wound is grievous. There is NONE to plead thy cause ... ALL THY LOVERS [ USA ] have FORGOTTEN THEE [ Israel ] they seek thee not ; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy . . . for the multitude of thine iniquity ; because thy sins were increased - Jeremiah 30v11-14
As the Syrian revolutionary bloodbath unfolded in 2011 , the international community was in paralysis with Russia & China blocking any intervention by NATO & Western Nations. Syrian President Bashar Al Assad menacingly threatened to create " an earthquake " that would engulf the entire Middle East by attacking Israel with a massive missile attack within 6 hours , if any foreign nation tried to intervene in Syria's affairs. The Bible clearly outlines that SYRIA ( & the Palestinians ) WILL attack Israel before Syria's ultimate destruction :
The SYRIANS before & the Philistines [ Palestinians ] behind , they shall devour Israel with open mouth - Isaiah 9v12
The burden of DAMASCUS [ Syria ] Behold , Damascus is taken away from being a city & it will be a ' ruinous ' heap
The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim & the kingdom from DAMASCUS & the remnant of SYRIA - Isaiah 17v1-4
In the world's worst act of domestic violence in recent history , Norway suffered a devastating terror bomb attack in the heart of its capital Oslo & then just 2 hours later the brutal gun massacre of 77 of its young citizens by a lone gunmen who went on a murderous rampage at a youth camp. It was Norway's worst violence since WWII. As Europe's ' foremost ' nation pushing for Palestinian statehood , Norway in a ' pre-emptive ' move , ' that very week ' were to raise the status of Palestinian delegations to " Ambassadorial " , a symbolic recognition of Palestine as a existing nation.
I will bless them that bless thee [ Israel ] & CURSE HIM that CURSETH THEE - Genesis 12v3
Let people serve thee [ Israel ] & nations bow down to thee : be lord over the brethren & let thy mother's sons
bow down to thee : CURSED BE everyone that curseth thee & blessed be he that blesseth thee - Genesis 27v29
HURRICANE ' IRENE ' ( USA )
This massive hurricane brought 1/5th of the United States to a standstill. Hurricane ' Irene ' caused billions of dollars of damage & destruction across 8 US states including New York City & claimed in excess of 25 lives. This enormous storm further damaged the fragile US economy & continued a bizarre & unprecedented series of ' record disasters ' to hit the United States in 2011 including Twisters ~ Blizzards ~ Floods ~ Tornadoes ~ Wildfires ~ Heatwaves ~ Droughts ~ Earthquakes & finally a Hurricane
The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth , for the LORD will bring CHARGES AGAINST THE NATIONS [ as all nations move against Israel ] He will bring judgment on ALL MANKIND & put the wicked to the sword " declares the LORD. This is what the LORD Almighty says " Look ! DISASTER is spreading FROM NATION to NATION ; A MIGHTY STORM is rising from
THE ENDS OF THE EARTH " - Jeremiah 25v31-33 ( Amplified Version )
In 2011 , the eastern horn of Africa endured a disaster of ' epic proportions ' as drought & famine devastated this impoverished region , threatening starvation for over 12 million people. This crippling famine was a further crisis in a region already wracked by ongoing conflict between loyalist government forces & Al Qaeda terrorist cells , who continued to cut off humanitarian-aid supply lines. In less than 3 months , over 30,000 children & infants alone perished from starvation & malnutrition related diseases.
Then said he [ Jesus ] unto them , Nation shall rise against nation & kingdom against kingdom & great earthquakes
shall be in divers places & FAMINES & PESTILENCES & fearful sights & great ' signs ' shall there be from heaven
- Luke 21v10-11
GLOBAL STOCKMARKET CRISIS
Fear & panic gripped the world's financial markets as a massive global sell-off was triggered by the downgrade of the USA to a AA+ credit rating & the growing fears of a catastrophic collapse in Europe's economy & currency as its debt crisis deepened. The chaotic market free fall wiped hundreds of billions of dollars off world markets & sent the value of gold sky-rocketing as fearful investors fled the markets
There shall be ' SIGNS ' in the sun & in the stars & upon the earth DISTRESS OF NATIONS with PERPLEXITY ; the sea &
the waves roaring ; Men's hearts failing them FOR FEAR & looking after THOSE things which ARE COMING on the earth :
for the powers of heaven [ political ] shall be shaken. THEN shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power
& great glory - Luke 21v25-27
U.K.'s RIOTS ( BRITAIN )
Street violence & looting - the worst in Britain's history - exploded across most major cities over 3 nights. Thousands of violent rioters overwhelmed police as they rampaged through English cities burning buildings , buses & cars , looting shops & attacking residents. As the anarchy spread , 4 people died & hundreds were injured & arrested , in Britain's worst violence in decades.
IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times shall come . . . For men shall be lovers of their own selves , covetous , boasters , proud , blasphemers , disobedient to parents , unthankful , unholy , without natural affection , trucebreakers , false accusers , incontinent , fierce , despisers of those that are good , traitors , heady , highminded , lovers of pleasures more than
lovers of God - 2 Timothy 3v1-3
PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD BID
Defying US & Israeli opposition , Palestinians made a dramatic application to the U.N. General Assembly to accept them as a member & an independent & sovereign state. Abandoning over two decades of negotiations , the Palestinians - who refuse to recognize ' the existence ' of Israel - made this divisive move in their quest to take control of Israeli territories of the West Bank & East Jerusalem which they claim as their capital. In their own words , the Palestinians admit their quest for a homeland is only a ' stepping stone ' in their goal to exterminate the nation of Israel.
Behold , I will make JERUSALEM a cup of trembling unto all the people round about , when they shall be in the siege both against Judah & Jerusalem. And in THAT DAY will I make JERUSALEM a ' burdensome stone ' for all people , all that burden themselves with IT shall be cut in pieces , though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it . . . And it shall come to pass in THAT DAY that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against JERUSALEM - Zech 12v2-3,9 & Joel 3v1-14
ISRAEL'S PERILOUS ISOLATION
As violence & revolution swept the Middle East in 2011 , Israel was being besieged by hostility & fear as former friends & allies Turkey & Egypt shifted to join the array of sworn enemies surrounding Israel , threatening Israel's very existence. Following the Egyptian Revolution Egypt all but abandoned its 30 yr peace accord with Israel , while Turkey joined the ranks of Israel's most inveterate enemies - Iran , Lebanon , Syria , Hezbollah , Hamas & the Palestinians , all of whom seek every opportunity to intimidate & provoke ( diplomatically & militarily ) the tiny nation of Israel.
Thine enemies make a tumult & they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people [ Israel ] & consulted against they hidden ones. They have said , Come & let us cut them off from being a nation ; that the name of ISRAEL may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent : they are confederate against thee - Psalm 83v2-5
Now also many nations are gathered against thee [ Israel ] that say , Let her [ Israel ] be defiled & let our eye look upon ZION [ Jerusalem ] But they know not the thoughts of the LORD neither understand they his counsel : for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. - Micah 4v11-12
TURKEY & LEBANON THREATEN WAR
Discoveries of ' massive ' energy reserves in the East Mediterranean threatened to turn the Middle East into a fireball of conflict. War tensions escalated dramatically in 2011 with both Turkey & Lebanon threatening open warfare with Israel , Greece & Cyprus over possession of these disputed oil & gas fields. On several occasions Turkey used military jet fighters & warships to harass Israeli & Cypriot ships during tense stand-offs. The Bible speaks of Turkey being part of a Russian-led latter-day invasion of Israel that comes to take ' a spoil '
I am against thee , O Gog , the chief prince of Meshech & Tubal ... I will turn thee [ Russia ] back & put hooks into thy jaws & I will bring thee forth & all thine army , horses & horsemen , all of them clothed with all sorts of armor , even a great company ... Persia [ Iran ] Ethiopia [ Sudan ] & Libya with them Gomer & all his bands, the house of Togormah [ Turkey ] of the north quarters & all his bands & many people [ Euro Nations ] with thee. IN THE LATTER YEARS thou [ Russia ] shalt come into the land ... against the mountains of Israel ... but it is brought forth out of the nations. Thou shalt ascend & come like a storm ... thou & all thy bands & many people with thee ... thou shalt think AN EVIL THOUGHT ... Thou [ Russia ] shalt say , I will go up to the land of unwalled villages ; I will go to them [ Israel ] that are at rest , that dwell safely . . TO TAKE A SPOIL & to take a prey ; to turn thine hand upon the people [ Israel ] that are gathered ' out of the nations ' Ezekiel 38v3-12
IRANIAN NUCLEAR MENACE
Led by extremist cleric Ayatollah Khamenei & hard-line President Ahmadenijad , in 2011 Iran continued to aggressively provoke Western Nations & destabilize its Arab neighbors. While snubbing international efforts to rein in its nuclear program , it is accused of smuggling 20,000 Libyan missiles & chemical weapons ( missing since Gadhafi's fall ) to arm its terrorist militias. With a common sworn objective of the total destruction of Israel , the Iranian regime by its funding & control of terrorist groups such as Hezbollah , continues to extend its influence over Syria , Lebanon , Palestinian factions & now increasingly in Iraq following the withdrawal of US forces at the end of 2011 . . .
Behold , I will stir up the MEDES [ Iran ] against them [ Iraq ] , which shall not regard silver & as for gold
they shall not delight in it. Their [ Iran ] bows also shall dash the young men to pieces & they shall have no pity
on the fruit of the womb ; their eye shall not spare children - Isaiah 13v17
Make ' bright ' the arrows [ missiles ] gather the shields : the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the MEDES [ Iran ]
for his device is against Babylon [ Iraq ] to destroy it , because it is the vengeance of the LORD - Jeremiah 51v11
" OCCUPY " PROTESTS WORLD-WIDE
Amid the revolutionary upheaval of the 2011 Arab Spring in the Middle East , the world has witnessed further mass uprisings around the globe in the last 3 months with the meteoric rise of " OCCUPY " protests. Originating in New York as the " Occupy Wall Street " protests against corporate greed & corruption , the movement based on mass discontent & civil disobedience has gone viral around the world , leading to protests in over 2,000 cities in more than 82 countries world-wide. This " revolutionary " phenomena is a further symptom of a world in turmoil ... remarkably foretold in Revelation 16v12-15. It is a precursor Christ's return to the earth :
v12 And the sixth angel poured his vial upon the great river Euphrates & the water thereof was dried up , ◄◄ STAGE 1 - Mid.East Uprising
that the ' way ' of the kings OF THE EAST [ Middle East " Arab Spring " ] might be prepared.
v13 And I saw three unclean ' SPIRITS ' like frogs come out of the mouth of THE DRAGON [ Russia ] & ◄◄ STAGE 2 - Political Uprising
out of the mouth of THE BEAST [ EuroUnion ] & out of the mouth of THE FALSE PROPHET [ Papacy ]
v14 For they are the ' spirits ' of devils [ Spirit of REVOLUT'N ] working ' miracles ' which GO FORTH unto ◄◄ STAGE 3 - Global Revolution
unto the kings of THE EARTH & of THE WHOLE WORLD [ ArabSpring ~ Occupy Protests ~ ]
to gather them to the battle of that Great Day of God Almighty
v15 Behold , I COME AS A THIEF. Blessed is he that watcheth & keepeth his garments , lest he walk naked ◄◄ STAGE 4 - Christ's Return
& they see his shame & He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue ARMAGEDDON
Note : 3 unclean " spirits " [ Liberty + Equality + Fraternity = " Democracy " ] - originating from 1789 French Revolution ( ie. " Frogs " )
" How were the Bangkok floods connected to Bible Prophecy ?? " Clearly 2011 was a remarkable year for disasters & historic events. From the cataclysmic triple disasters to hit Japan , the string of disasters to hit the USA , the ongoing financial crises engulfing the Eurozone & USA , political & humanitarian chaos in the Middle East Uprisings , the myriad of global events (Volcanoes - E/qks - Asteroids - Lunar & Solar eclipses & flares ) & bizarre weather phenomena in 2011 - ALL point to God's promise to send ' Signs & Wonders ' just prior to His Son's return. Why Thailand ??? ... Bangkok is the ' world capital ' for sex trade & tourism. Slavery , prostitution & exploitation of minors is endemic & representative of the abject immorality of mankind in the last days. Bangkok's devastating floods are a clear " warning " of God's coming judgments on mankind - just as He used the ' Great Flood ' to bring judgment on the world in Noah's day.
Behold , THE DAY OF THE LORD cometh . . . cruel both with wrath & fierce anger
& He shall destroy the sinners thereof out if it.
& I will punish the world for their evil
& the wicked for their iniquity
& will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease
& will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible - Isaiah 13v9-11
For more incredible evidence on many of these events , please go to our ' Bible Videos ' to see stunning information that will leave you convinced of the Bible's authenticity & relevance to coming world events !!!
