BIBLE PROPHECY . . . 2014 in Review
D E C E M B E R
MODERN DAY IRAN . . . THE ' EVIL EMPIRE'S ' COMING ATROCITIES . . . FORE-TOLD IN PROPHECY !!!
Iran has just held the " largest military exercise in its history." Involving close to 13,000 personnel & all branches of Iran’s military , the six day exercises spanned 2.2 million sq.km. from the Strait of Hormuz , the Persian Gulf , to the Gulf of Aden & parts of the Indian ocean. On the eve of the drills , the Iranian military said they planned to bring state-of-the-art ‘ missile defence systems ’ into its integrated air defence shield. An Iranian General said it was a " message of peace to our friendly neighbours , but also a show of force regarding our defence abilities which sends a message to our enemies.“ Described in Iran’s media as a massive show of force, it included the testing of Iranian warships & submarines. The drills finished with a military parade on December 30.
How remarkable , over 2,000 years ago - in a chapter describing the end-times Day of the Lord - the Bible spoke of ‘ latter-day ’ Iran as being ‘ stirred up ’ against its neighbor Babylon ( Iraq ). Of its refusal to be swayed by financial or material gain , seen in recent years by Iran’s steadfast refusal to yield to Western ‘ economic sanctions ’ wielded to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons development. It spoke of their ' weapon of choice ' being arrows ( ‘ missiles ’ ) & their ideological desire to use them to kill both man & child. God’s Word makes clear … Iran will very soon join forces with Russia to not only invade Iraq . . . but also Israel. That time is fast approaching…
Isaiah 13v17-18 – “ Look , I will stir up the Medes ( Iran ) against Babylon ( Iraq ) . They cannot be tempted by silver or bribed with gold. The attacking armies will shoot down the young men with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies & will show no compassion for children ”
RUSSIAN ' GOG ' VLADIMIR PUTIN . . . PREPARING TO UNLEASH TERROR ON THE ' HOLY LAND '
Russia is planning to ignite a war in Israel in an alleged ‘ contingency plan ’ to trigger a direct military conflict between Israel & its northern neighbors Hezbollah & Syria’s al-Assad regime. A French official has revealed Russia's plan to start a war in Israel was its weapon against its own deepening isolation over Ukraine & Crimea & the crippling sanctions the West was using to target Russia’s economy. Russia has been secretly ' priming this plan ' by sending Hezbollah large convoys of Iskandar ballistic missiles & surface-to-air missiles , despite the efforts of Israeli airstrikes in December to target these weapons shipped by Russia.
Could Russia ignite a conflict between Israel & its neighbours in retaliation to Western sanctions ? According to the report the French official believes Russia is indeed planning a possible conflict in the Middle East to play out the country's confrontation with the West. Earlier this month Vladimir Putin was ' visited ' by Syria’s FM in Sochi & given Russia’s recent shipments of high tech military weapons to Syria & Lebanon’s Hezbollah , it’s a ' plausible scenario ’ that is consistent with bible prophecy. God’s Word clearly foretells there is a preliminary conflict between Israel & its surrounding neighbours that will ' PRECEDE ' the end-time confederate invasion of Israel led by ' Gog '. It makes sense that Russia is behind the first war ( Israel’s neighbours ) before the second war , described in Ezekiel 38.
Ezekiel 38v8 - " After many days thou ( Gog / Putin ) shalt be visited : in ' the latter years ' thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword & is gathered out of many people , against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste : but it is brought forth out of the nations & they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend & come ' like a storm ' , thou shalt be ' like a cloud ' to cover the land , thou & all thy bands & many people with thee "
' THE BEAST ' ( E.U. ) . . . LEGITIMISES TERROR GROUP ' HAMAS ' . . . CALLS FOR ISRAELI ' WAR-CRIMES ' PROBE
Israeli PM Netanyahu slammed the European Union decision to remove Hamas from its ' terrorist list ' calling it a staggering example of EU hypocrisy & an indication that many on the continent learned nothing from the Holocaust. The EU court said it ordered Hamas’ removal from the list for ‘ procedural reasons ’. The decision coming the same day as a United Nations body in Europe delivered a stinging rebuke to Israel's settlement construction in the West Bank & called for Israel to be investigated for potential ‘ war crimes ’. These two developments follow a recent surge in European Parliaments to unilaterally recognize a state of Palestine.
By taking Hamas off the ‘ terrorist list ’ the EU has given formal recognition to Hamas , who refuse to recognise the Israel’s ‘ right to exist ’ as an independent, sovereign nation & is totally opposed to any agreement or arrangement that would recognize its right to exist. Hamas’ own charter says “ Israel will arise & continue to exist until Islam wipes it out ” While boasting it has killed 1365 Zionist soldiers , Hamas also deliberately targets Israeli civilians while hiding among its own civilians. There is a Hebrew word “ Hamas ” ( 'Chamas' ) in the Bible. It means violence , malicious , cruel & unrighteous. Everything that Hamas is.
As we see the latter-day emergence of ' the Beast ' ( of Revelation ) in the form of the European Union , we'll continue to see the EU's increasing hostility to God's people. Europe despises the Jews & will actually stand against Christ & the saints when he returns . . .
Revelation 17v12-14 - " The ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet ; but receive power as kings one hour with ' the beast ' ( Catholic EuroUnion ). These have ' one mind ' & shall give their power & strength unto ' the beast '. These shall ' make war ' with the Lamb ( Christ ) & the Lamb shall overcome them.
ISRAEL DESTROYS ' RUSSIAN ' MISSILES IN SYRIA . . .
Israel has attacked Syria once again. Reports of Israeli air strikes near Damascus have wiped out newly-arrived Russian hardware including missiles sent to help Syria & Hezbollah frustrate a US plan for a ' no-fly zone ' over northern Syria. The advanced weapons were sent after Russian President Vladimir Putin learned the Obama administration & Turkey were close to a final draft on a joint effort to activate a no-fly zone that would bar Syrian air force traffic over northern Syria. In the past , Syria's Govt have not commented on Israeli airstrikes but this time spokesmen in Damascus warned their govt’s response would be clandestine & cause Israel "unimaginable harm.” We know from Isaiah 17 there is conflict btwn Israel & Damascus at the ' time of the end '. The Bible says , when Damascus is finally destroyed Ephraim ( Northern Israel ) will be greatly weakened. These events have moved us closer to this
Isaiah 17v1-3 - Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city & it shall be ' a ruinous heap '. The cities of Aroer are forsaken : they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down & none shall make them afraid. The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim & the kingdom from Damascus & the remnant of Syria : they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel , saith the LORD of hosts . . . In that day it shall come to pass , that the ' glory of Jacob ' ( Israel ) shall be made thin & the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
. . . ENRAGED KREMLIN ' DEMANDS EXPLANATION '
Responding to the airstrikes , Russia sent a protest letter to the United Nations demanding an explanation to the " Israeli aggression ". Analysts say the air-strikes are the first overt military clash with Russia in the course of the 3 year Syrian War , destroying components of Russian anti-aircraft missiles system Russia had delivered to Syria only days prior & were intended for the Lebanese terrorist group, Hezbollah. Significantly , the strikes occurred only 24 hours after Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister had met with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The Bible says Russia's Gog will invade Israel. With Russian - Israeli hostilities escalating . . . it may be very soon !!!
Ezekiel 38v15-16 - ... thou ( Russia ) shalt come from thy place out of the north parts , thou & many people with thee , all of them riding upon horses , a great company & a mighty army : & thou shalt come up against ' my people ' of Israel , as a cloud to cover the land ; it shall be in ' the latter days ' & I will bring thee against my land , that the heathen ( nations ) may know me . . .
VATICAN'S ' EXTREME ' WEALTH ( . . . & MURKY FINANCES ) REVEALED !!!
In yet another disturbing insight into the secret & immoral practices of the Roman Mother Church , the Vatican has revealed it has uncovered ' hundreds of millions ' of Euros/dollars allegedly ' stashed away ' in hidden Vatican bank accounts. It is a stunning but wholly unsurprising admission. But in a cunning ploy to deflect the Holy See’s culpability , Cardinal George Pell ( the Vatican appointee charged with ' cleaning up ' its scandal-ridden finances ) issued a special report explaining the discovery , titled “ The Days of Ripping Off the Vatican are Over ” … quite shamelessly portraying the Vatican as ‘ the victim ’ in the scandal , rather than the countless millions of followers ( often who live in poverty ) who have been deceived & defrauded by this Apostate religious system. Of course , one must ask after this enormous discovery of ‘ hundreds of millions ’ of Euros/dollars lying unused in the Vatican vaults , will the Catholic Church make these vast amounts of idle money available to help the plight of the poor & the needy ?!? We’ll not hold our breath !!!
This scandal further illustrates the unscrupulous & evil practices of the Papacy. The Bible speaks ‘ repeatedly ’ of the wickedness & sorceries perpetrated down through the centuries by the Vatican. The prophet Nahum speaking allegorically of this ' great city ' situated in Rome described it as “ the well-favoured harlot , the mistress of witchcrafts , that ‘ selleth ’ nations through her whoredoms & families through her witchcrafts ”, a city of blood “ full of lies & robbery ; where the prey ( victims ) departeth not ”. However , Bible Prophecy also speaks graphically concerning the great judgments & destruction the LORD will soon bring upon Rome . . . .
Revelation 18v16-20 - Alas , alas , that great city ( Rome / Vatican ) , that was clothed in fine linen & purple & scarlet & decked with gold & precious stones & pearls. For in one hour ' so great riches ' is come to nought ... And ( they ) cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city ! And they cast dust on their heads & cried , weeping & wailing , saying , Alas , alas , that great city , wherein were ' made rich ' all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness ! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven , & ye holy apostles & prophets ; for God hath avenged you on her.
KING OF THE SOUTH . . . BRITAIN'S ' END-TIMES ' MOVE INTO THE MIDDLE EAST
Prophecy is unfolding before our eyes !! Britain - for the first time in over 40 years - has announced it will open a new permanent military base in Bahrain in a deal to increase cooperation in tackling security threats in the region. Bahrain is part of a US-EU led coalition of nations fighting extremist Islamic State militants which have carved out large parts of Syria & Iraq. Britain pulled out of the region in 1971 , ending an enduring presence that dated back to the mighty British Empire. But this week it announced a major strategic reversal of that decision. Britain’s Foreign Secretary said Britain was intending to take up a greater security role in the Middle East as the United States pivots toward Asia. The base will host the Royal Navy's Type-45 destroyers as well as 2 new aircraft carriers
Four years ago , David Cameron's new government made reviving Britain's old strategic & trading alliance with the Gulf states the key priority of its foreign policy. This is exactly what the Bible says would happen. Britain ( Tarshish ) would be working with Saudi Arabia & the Gulf states ( Sheba & Dedan ). Bahrain is one of the states on the Arabian peninsula that is covered by ancient Sheba & Dedan. We know the day is coming when the king of the north will come against the king of the south …
Ezekiel 38v13 - Sheba & Dedan & ' the merchants ' of Tarshish ( Britain ) with all the ' young lions ' ( Canada , Australia , NZ , India ) thereof , shall say unto thee ( Russian Gog ) , Art thou come to take ' a spoil ' ? ... hast thou gathered thy company to take ' a prey ' ? ... to carry away silver & gold ... to take away cattle & goods , to take a ' great spoil ' ?
Daniel 11v40 - At the ' time of the end ' shall the king of the south ( Britain ) push at him : & the king of the north ( Russia ) shall come against him like a whirlwind , with chariots & horsemen & many ships & he shall enter into the countries & shall overflow & pass over
PREPARATIONS FOR WAR !!! . . . RUSSIA LAUNCHES HI-TECH ' MILITARY HEAD-QUARTERS '
Russia has unveiled a new national defence facility , designed to monitor threats to national security in peacetime ... & in the event of war , it would take control of the entire country. The new top-security, fortified facility in Moscow includes several large war rooms , a brand new supercomputer in the heart of a state-of-the-art data processing centre , underground facilities , secret transport routes for emergency evacuation & a helicopter pad. The Kremlin won’t disclose the price tag for the site, but its estimated to have cost several billion dollars. The new National Defence Control Centre (NDCC) is a major upgrade on the previous Russian Central Command , a unit tasked with round-the-clock monitoring of military threats against Russia , particularly ballistic missile launches & deployment of strategic nuclear weapons. Meanwhile , Russia's crippled economy further deteriorates. Even in the face of national financial ruin - we see the stunning fulfillment of Bible Prophecy as ' weak nations ' ( most notably Russia , Iran , North Korea ) deeply invested in rampant militarisation programs & continuing to beat war drums , as they race toward a long-prophesied war - foretold in the Bible - that will involve ' all nations '. As we watch these mindless & irrational preparations for war , we can see just how accurate & trustworthy God's Word is & take confidence that it will be the LORD's ' mighty one's ' led by the Lord Jesus Christ who will have the last word.
Joel 3v9-11 - 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 your plowshares into swords & your pruninghooks into spears : let ' the weak ' say , I am strong. Assemble yourselves & come , all ye heathen & gather yourselves together round about .... cause ' thy mighty ones ' to come down , O LORD

COLLAPSING OIL PRICES & ECONOMIC SANCTIONS . . . HOOKS IN RUSSIA'S JAWS !!!
Russia is facing an financial catastrophe . It's economy is in tatters , strangled by the ever-tightening economic sanctions & further crippled by the recent collapse in global oil prices. The combined effect has estimated to have cost the Russian economy over $140 Billion to date. Add to this the ' flight of capital ' overseas by panicked investors who - foreseeing coming turmoil - are turning to safer markets. The consquence has been Russia's currency has plunged recently by over 40% , despite Russia's Govt spending over $700 million ( 20% of its gold reserves ) in a futile attempt to stabilise & support the freefalling Rouble. With an imminent financial crisis looming on the horizon , Russian President Vladimir Putin remains defiant , fiercely railing against international sanctions & bolstering his domestic popularity by demonising the West with belligerent rhetoric & threats. With Russia relying on its oil exports for half its revenues & no prospect of sanctions being removed , economic realities & financial hardship will soon ' force ' the Russian Bear to lash out militarily in an aggressive drive into the Middle East to seize a lucrative spoil , exactly as foretold in scripture over 2,000 yrs ago. Amazing !! We are on the threshold of ' cataclysmic world events ' soon to unfold & so clearly detailed aforetime in God's Word
Ezekiel 38v3-12 - Thus saith the Lord GOD ; Behold , I am against thee, O Gog , the chief prince of Meshech & Tubal . . . I will turn thee back & put hooks into thy jaws & I will bring thee forth & all thine army , horses & horsemen , all of them clothed with all sorts of armour , even a great company with bucklers & shields , all of them handling swords . . . in the latter years , thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword & is gathered out of many people , against the mountains of Israel . . . but it is brought forth out of the nations & they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend & come like a storm , thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land , thou & all thy bands & many people with thee . . . It shall also come to pass , that at the same time shall things come into thy mind & thou shalt think an evil thought : ... thou shalt say , I will go up to the land of unwalled villages ; I will go to them that are at rest , that dwell safely , all of them dwelling without walls & having neither bars nor gates . . . To take ' a spoil ' & to take ' a prey '

THE FALSE PROPHET . . . CALLS FOR EUROPEAN ' GLOBAL LEADERSHIP '
In a speech to the European Parliament , Pope Francis has urged an " elderly & haggard " Europe to overcome economic crises & rising nationalism to reclaim a global leadership role. This was clearly foretold in God's Word 2,000yrs ago !!! ' The woman ' in Revelat'n 17 ( with Babylon Mother of Harlots written on her head ) is riding ( or controlling ) the ' scarlet beast ' with 7 heads & 10 horns. ' The woman ' encouraged ' the beast ' to come out of the ' bottomless pit ' that it has been in for a long time. So how do we know ' the woman ' is the Papacy & ' the beast ' is Europe ?? It's simple. Revelation 17v9 says ' the woman ' sits on 7 hills. The entire Vatican City sits within the famed 7 hills of Rome. ' The beast ' with 10 horns links back to Daniel 7 - the 4th terrible beast. That beast is the 4th empire after ancient Babylon - which in history was the Roman Empire - what we now is now ' Catholic Europe '. The little horn in Daniel 7 is the Pope so Revelatn 17 & Daniel 7 are the same story. When Christ returns the Papacy & Europe will wage war against Him & the saints
Revelation 17 v 7-9 - And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel ? I will tell thee the mystery of ' the woman ' & of ' the beast ' that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads & ten horns. ' The beast ' that thou sawest was, & is not ; & shall ascend out of the bottomless pit & go into perdition & they that dwell on the earth shall wonder , whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world , when they behold ' the beast ' that was & is not & yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains . . . on which ' the woman ' sitteth.

OBAMA'S FAILED PRESIDENCY ?!?!? . . . PROPHETIC PRE-CURSOR TO COMING WORLD CHAOS
Once the ' unrivalled ' global superpower & engine of the world economy ... the USA is in freefall. Obama's radical transformation of America is nearly complete. Domestically , his presidency has been a littany of political scandals , highly divisive social policies & economic mismanagement which over 6 years has devastated the social fabric & financial strength of America. With 2 yrs remaining in his term & nothing to lose , Obama is now creating havoc by defying the US Constitution & the electorate , issuing sweeping executive orders on immigration , Obamacare & further vetoing & over-turning traditional US policy. The only options to stop this are either ' impeachment ' or ' govt shutdown ' - bringing a catastrophic constitutional & economic crisis for America . . . & for the world
Barack Obama's Foreign Policy has been a violent polar shift in US policy. His withdrawal from Iraq & Afghanistan , refusal to confront or acknowledge Islamic Terrorism , his slashing of US military capability , his timid appeasement to Russian aggression & his abandonment & hostility toward Israel bespeak Obama's true intentions. But could he do the unthinkable . . . & sign a ' co-operation deal ' with the world's largest state-sponsor of terrorism - Iran ??? A deal of ' mutual convenience ' where Iran takes responsibility for crushing the ISIS threat in Iraq/Syria - in return for ' lifting of sanctions ' & a green light for its " nuclear enrichment program " ( & weaponisation ) As the Nuclear Talks deadline ( Nov.24 ) nears , its a scenario that fits with Isaiah's words , as the world spirals toward an economic & ' nuclear ' crisis.
UPDATE : Iran & the P5+1 Nations fail to reach any agreement - agreeing to continue talks for a further 7 mths - critically giving Iran more time to continue its nuclear program
Isaiah 24v1-6 - The LORD maketh the earth empty & maketh it waste & turneth it upside down & scattereth abroad the inhabitants. It shall be, as with the people , so with the priest ; as with the servant , so with his master ; as with the maid, so with her mistress ; as with the buyer , so with the seller ; as with the lender, so with the borrower ; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied & utterly spoiled : for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth & fadeth away , the world languisheth & fadeth away , the ' haughty people ' of the earth ( USA ) do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof ; because they have transgressed the laws , changed the ordinance , broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath ' the curse ' ( Nuclear War ) devoured the earth & they that dwell therein are desolate : therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned & few men left
IRAN'S AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI . . . THE SINISTER PLAN TO ' ELIMINATE ' ISRAEL
Continuing decades of vile rhetoric towards Israel , the Supreme Leader of Iran , Ayatollah Khamenei has revealed his ' 9 Point Plan ' for the ' elimination of Israel '. It is a thinly veiled threat , to eradicate the Jewish State - if not in the first instance by a proposed referendum ( wherein ' Jewish immigrants ' have no say !!! ) - then ultimately by means of armed confrontation by Palestinians & their supporters. In an effort to ' sanitise ' the proposal & disguise Iran's own hatred & hostility toward Israel , the Ayatollah states ' a war ' by Muslim nations to eliminate Israel is " not recommended " . . . but it is also not ruled out !!! Bible Prophecy is absolutely clear . . .
Iran - will very soon - go to war to eliminate Israel. There is NO doubt. Written 2,500 yrs ago , the prophetic book of Isaiah , speaking of the end-times ' Day of Trouble ' to befall Israel , makes clear reference to ' Elam ' ( modern-day Iran ) being a chief protagonist who seeks to eliminate the Jews from the land. The bible passage speaks unmistakably of Iran's coming attack on Jerusalem , even making allusions to the Islamic regime's present-day obsession with missiles & rockets , describing the Iranian forces as ' archers ' baring ' quivers , chariots & horsemen '. It's a graphic description of Jerusalem's future destruction , that will follow Iran's coming invasion of Iraq
Isaiah 22v2-6 - Thou ( Jerusalem ) that art full of stirs , a tumultuous city , a joyous city : thy slain men are not slain with the sword , nor dead in battle. All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by ' the archers ' : all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far. Therefore said I , Look away from me ; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me , because of ' the spoiling ' of the daughter of my people ( Israel ) . For it is ' a day of trouble ' & of treading down & of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision , breaking down the walls & of crying to the mountains ... & Elam ( Iran ) bare ' the quiver ' with chariots of men & horsemen
VLADIMIR PUTIN . . . . FORBES MAGAZINE → 2014 ' WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL PERSON '
The world is witnessing the rise of a geo-political giant , a brutal end-times global dictator !!! Incredibly , the emergence of this global despot was actually foretold in God's Word 2,500 yrs ago !!! Now recognised by Forbes as the ' Most Powerful Man on the Planet ' ( for the 2nd consecutive year ) Putin will very soon unleash devastating events that will forever change the global landscape. Since taking office as Russia's President in 2004 - the former chief of the ' secretive ' KGB agency - Putin in his quest to restore the ' glory of the old Soviet Union ' has steered Russia through a stunning resurgence to world prominence , influence & power.
In 2014 , despite Russia's economy being in steep decline & its currency in freefall as international sanctions bite , Putin continues to provoke & defy Western efforts to reign in his lawless ways. Extending his global influence dramatically , he has outflanked & outwitted his western foes in ' geopolitical crises ' in the Middle East & Eastern Europe with a mix of belligerent military aggression & diplomatic double-speak , lies & deceit. His unlawful annexation of Crimea & East Ukraine , the criminal downing of Malaysian Flight MH-17 , his under-handed support of Iran's nuclear program & of Syria's brutal Assad regime all attest to Putin's calculated ambition for world dominion. In recent days Putin has intimidated nations with Russian jets & bombers , submarine incursions in Sweden's territorial waters & even stationing 4 Russian warships off Australia's coast in a show of strength to co-incide with his appearance at the G20 Conference. It is behaviour clearly spoken of many times in Bible Prophecy of this latter-day tyrant who after causing global chaos & strife ( coming soon !!! ) particularly on God's people Israel , he will ultimately be destroyed at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Daniel 8v23-25 - In the latter time ... ' a king ' of fierce countenance understanding ' dark sentences ' , shall stand up & his power shall be mighty but not by his own power & he shall destroy wonderfully & shall prosper & practise & shall destroy ' the mighty ' & ' the holy people ' ( Israel ) & thro' his policy he shall cause ' craft ' ( deceit / treachery ) to prosper in his hand & he shall magnify himself in his heart & ' by peace ' shall destroy many ... he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes ( Christ ) but he shall be ' broken ' without hand

THE FALSE PROPHET . . . DECLARES ' EVOLUTION & BIG BANG ' ARE CORRECT !!!
Let ' no man ' deceive you by any means : for that day shall not come , except there come a falling away first & that ' man of sin ' be revealed , the son of perdition , Who opposeth & exalteth himself above all that is called God , or that is worshipped ; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God , shewing himself that he is God
Since his ascension to the Papal Throne less than 2 years ago , Pope Francis has stunned the world with his ( often controversial ) transformation of the Vatican's public image , official policies & most importantly ... church doctrines. This unprecedented overhaul of the Catholic Church is under-pinned by Francis' grand vision to create ' One Universal Religion ' under the auspices of the Catholic Mother Church. In this ecumenical drive to ' global unification ' the Vatican has been cunningly laying the groundwork to reform it's already unbiblical ' apostate doctrines ' to reflect more ' socially appealing ' ( & humanistic ) teachings , including more tolerant policies on issues such as divorce & remarriage , atheists , celibacy , same-sex relationships & marriage. All ' populist ' moves to widen the Church's outreach , but in total rejection of God's Laws & true bible teaching. Now the declaration by Pope Francis' that the Evolution of man & the Big Bang theory " are right " & not inconsistent with Catholic doctrine. It is yet another example of the Pope - not only opposing God's Laws - but elevating his own will above the Creator's !!! As we watch this further devolution of the Catholic Church's ungodly teachings , thro' the adoption of these doctrines of devils ( ' rebellion ' ) it's a sure sign we are in the ' latter times ' & a timely hint to ' the nearness ' of the Lord's return before the fearful judgments upon the Roman church & all her apostate ' daughters '
1Tim 4v1-2 - In the ' latter times ' . . . some shall depart from the faith , giving heed to seducing spirits & ' doctrines of devils ' ; Speaking ' lies in hypocrisy ' having their conscience seared with a hot iron ; Forbidding to marry & commanding to abstain from meats
Revelation 16v13-16 - And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon ( Russia ) & out of the mouth of the beast ( Euro Union ) & out of the mouth of the false prophet ( Vatican ). For they are the ' spirits of devils ' working miracles , which go forth unto the kings of the earth & of the whole world , to ' gather them to the battle ' of that great day of God Almighty . . . Behold , I come as a thief . . . Blessed is he that watcheth & keepeth his garments , lest he walk naked & they see his shame & He ' gathered them together ' into a place called in the Hebrew tongue ' Armageddon '.
RISE OF THE RUSSIAN BEAR . . . VLADIMIR PUTIN ACCUSES ' THE WEST ' OF CAUSING CHAOS
. . . meanwhile , Russia's own ' lawless ways ' continue to sew strife & geopolitical fears world-wide. Ukraine , ' ground zero ' for Vladimir Putin's current expansionist policies , remains a firestorm of conflict ... but it is just a foretaste of the naked aggression this Russian juggernaut will soon display. In recent days Russia has belligerently inflamed world tensions , with its jet fighters , bombers & spy-planes , continually threatening the airspace of sovereign nations such as Japan , Canada , Britain , United States , Sweden & Baltic states. International alarm was raised as Sweden revealed multiple sightings of a mysterious foreign vessel in its territorial waters ( believed to be a Russian submarine ) in yet another provocation flagging Russia's devious intentions in the region. All these aggressive acts coming in the aftermath of the criminal downing of Malaysian MH-17 ( by Russian-made missiles ). As Putin tightens his ' energy strangehold ' over Ukraine , Europe & the Baltic states & further extends Russia's sphere of influence in the Middle East thro' weapons sales & military co-operation , we're seeing the rise of a new ' global superpower ' ( foretold in God's Word ) that will soon sweep down with overwhelming force & violence into the Middle East , to seize the Holy Land & crush God's people.
PLS see the attached ' News Report ' revealing the discovery by Syrian Rebels who unearthed a secret Russian spy base in the Golan Heights overlooking Israel
Jeremiah 4v5-14 - Declare ye in Judah & publish in Jerusalem & say , Blow ye the trumpet in the land ( Israel ) : cry , gather together & say , Assemble yourselves & let us go into the ' defenced cities '. Set up the standard toward Zion : retire , stay not : for I will bring ' evil ' from the north ( Russia ) & a great destruction. The lion is come up from his thicket & the ' destroyer of the Gentiles ' is on his way ; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land ( Israel ) desolate & thy cities shall be laid waste without an inhabitant. Behold , he ( Russia ) shall come up ' as clouds ' & his chariots shall be ' as a whirlwind ' his horses are swifter ' than eagles '. Woe unto us ! for we are spoiled. O Jerusalem , wash thine heart from wickedness , that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee ? ... Make ye mention to the nations ; behold , publish against Jerusalem , that " watchers " come from a far country ' & give out their voice against the cities of Judah.

IRAQ'S ' FLEEING ' MILITARY . . . PRE-CURSOR TO COMING ' END-TIMES ' CHAOS
The ' mighty men ' of Babylon ( Iraq ) have ' forborn ' to fight , they have remained in their holds : their might hath failed ; they became ' as women '
As Iraq's military forces crumble & flee ahead of ISIS advances , could there be a ' more accurate ' description of the unravelling of Iraq ?? Since the fall of Mosul , reports of entire battalions of US-trained & equipped Iraqi soldiers abandoning their posts & weapons & running for their lives , have become commonplace. How could ancient writings in God's Word ( over 2,500 yrs old ) so vividly describe the abject disarray in Iraq's military ?? Now reports ISIS is in total control of Anbar Province & are only 8km from Baghdad Airport. Many analysts believe if Baghdad Airport is seized , the capital Baghdad will be overun & Iraq lost as a nation-state. With diplomatic staff & hundreds of military personel stranded in the U.S. Embassy , is it possible the Obama Administration will cut a ' deal of mutual convenience ' with Iran to avert a looming crisis ?? . . . a quiet nod to a nuclear-armed Iran in exchange for Iran's help against ISIS ?!?
Unthinkable ?!? Perhaps not !! The stunning bible passage in Jeremiah prophetically describing Iraq's abysmal military , is actually written in the context of an ' invasion of Iraq ' by a coalition of nations . . . led by the kings of the ' Medes ' ( IRAN !!! ) Can there be any doubt , we are seeing the unfolding of ancient Bible Prophecies in 2014 ??? While the prospect of a ' US - Iranian ' deal is speculative , we can be totally sure Iran ( with Russia ) will soon invade Iraq ( Babylon ) as foretold multiple times in God's Word
Jer 51v28-29 - Prepare against her ( Iraq ) ' the nations ' with the kings of the ' Medes ' ( Iran ) the captains & all the rulers thereof & all the land of his dominion , the land shall tremble & sorrow : for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon ( Iraq ) to make the land of Babylon ( Iraq ) a desolation without an inhabitant. The ' mighty men ' of Babylon ( Iraq ) have ' forborn ' to fight , they have remained in their holds : their might hath failed ; they became as women : they have burned her ( Iraq ) dwelling places

WORLD-WIDE TURMOIL SPREADING !!! . . . & THE COMING WORK FOR ' THE FAITHFUL IN CHRIST '
In 2014 we are witnessing global chaos on a historic scale. In the Middle East , ISIS continues its murderous rampage undeterred by coalition bombing , as ' millions ' of civilians are displaced & left homeless , as they flee spiralling violence in Syria , Iraq & Libya. Meanwhile , Russia continues to destabilise Ukraine despite Western protests & sanctions , further un-nerving Baltic & Euro nations. The Ebola Virus is causing fear & panic as it ravages Africa & spreads around the globe. Even ' nature ' itself appears to be in turmoil with earthquakes , volcanic eruptions , typhoons , floods , epic droughts & other extreme weather events on almost every hand. Amid all these tumultous events , world stock markets are also reeling as global uncertainty , geopolitical tensions & economic concerns mount.
Yet despite a world wracked by corruption , violence & fearfulness , God's Word not only provides hope & encouragement , but also certainty of the exact events to come ... particularly the blessed role for those who ' faithfully serve the Lord ' now. The old testament prophet Malachi provides a clear picture of the coming honor & responsibilty the ' faithful ' will have ( after their glorification at the judgement seat ) to return with the Lord Jesus Christ to cleanse this world of man's evils & restore Godliness to the earth once more.
Malachi 3v16-18 - Then ' THEY that feared the LORD ' spake often one to another & the LORD hearkened & heard it & a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD & that thought upon his name. They shall be mine , saith the LORD of hosts , IN THAT DAY when I make up ' my jewels ' & I will spare them , as a man spareth his own son that serveth him . . .
THEN shall ' YE ' return & discern ... between the righteous & the wicked ... between him that serveth God ... & him that serveth him not.
4v1-3 For behold , THE DAY cometh that shall burn as an oven & all the proud & all that do wickedly, shall be stubble ... & THE DAY that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But ' unto you ' that fear my name shall the ' Sun of righteousness ' arise with healing in his wings & YE shall go forth & grow up as calves of the stall . . . & YE shall tread down the wicked ; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet IN THE DAY that I shall do this , saith the LORD.

ISRAEL'S PM WARNS IRAN , HAMAS & ISIL . . . ALL PART OF SAME ' POISONOUS TREE '
Addressing the United Nations General Assembly , Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu warned of the dire threat from Iran , Hamas & the Islamic State likening the triumvirate to " branches on the same poisonous tree ". It is an apt description. God's Word , the Bible also describes the nations as ' trees '. The bible prophecy in Joel Ch.1 ~ an ominous fore-warning of global events coming soon ~ uses ' trees ' to symbolise the nations of the world just before the final apocalyptic war between the nations. Centred around the coming ' DAY of THE LORD ' this chapter describes how ' all the trees of the field ' ( of the world ) will be consumed by ' the fire ' & ' the flame ' ( a symbollic reference to ' nuclear war ' ) Importantly , Joel's prophecy makes clear this terrible war is not directly ' the judgments of God ' rather it is man's evil upon man ; but such is the devastation it is likened ' as ' a destruction from the Almighty.
In 2014 , as we see the Middle East rapidly sliding into chaos . . . a terrifying global ' arms - race ' as nervous nations weaponise amid rising geopolitical tensions . . . Iran , North Korea & even Saudi Arabia on the threshold of nuclear weapons . . . it is very , very clear, fulfilment of this bible prophecy is near !!! It is these exact conditions that in recent days compelled a desperate Israeli PM to alert the international community to the danger of not recognising this threat posed by a nuclear-armed Iran. Alas !! ... War is coming !!!
Joel 1v12-20 - The vine is dried up & the fig tree languisheth ; the pomegranate tree , the palm tree also & the apple tree , even ' all the trees ' of the field are withered : because joy is withered away from the sons of men. Gird yourselves & lament , ye priests . . . Sanctify ye a fast , call a solemn assembly , gather the elders & all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God & cry unto the LORD. Alas for THE DAY !! for THE DAY of the LORD is at hand & ' as ' a destruction from the Almighty shall it come . . . for ' the fire ' hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness & ' the flame ' hath burned ' all the trees ' of the field. The beasts of the field cry also unto thee : for the rivers of waters are dried up & ' the fire ' hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.
NOTE : We would encourage ' everyone ' to read through the old testament Prophecy of JOEL ( Ch's 1 -3 ) themselves . This short prophecy provides an excellent overview & detailed understanding of many of the momentous events soon to unfold. There is ' no substitute ' for a personal , thoughtful reading of God's Word.

RUSSIA & IRAN CONDEMN SYRIAN AIR-STRIKES . . . WAS IT THE END-TIMES ' PUSH ' ?!?!?
Could the anti-ISIS airstrikes in Syria trigger a war between the superpowers , America & Russia ??? While both powers oppose the rise of ISIS , Vladimir Putin a week before the airstrikes ' warned menacingly ' Russia would consider such action " acts of aggression " against its close-ally Syria & " a violation of international law ". Breath-taking given Vladimir Putin's own lawless actions in Ukraine !! Since the airstrikes , Iran's leaders have also slammed the US-led attacks calling them " illegal " & " a violation of Syrian sovereignty "
This emerging solidarity between Russia & Iran is alluded to repeatedly in God's Word when they are together referred to as ' The Spoiler ' ( Russia ) & ' The Treacherous Dealer ' ( Iran ) ; these bible passages always being in connection with the ' latter-day invasion ' of the Middle East , most notably of Iraq ( ' Babylon ' ) Egypt & Israel ( ' Judah ' ). So as Russia & Iran now react to the bombing of their ally Syria , could this US-led ' PUSH ' against the Russian ' King of the North ' is the catalyst for the prophesied end-time conflict ?
Daniel 11v40-43 - At the ' TIME OF THE END ' shall the ' king of the south ' ( US / UK ) ' PUSH ' at him & the ' king of the north ' ( Russia ) shall come against him like a whirlwind , with chariots & with horsemen & with many ships & he shall enter into the countries & shall overflow & pass over. He shall enter also into ' the glorious land ' ( Israel ) & ' many countries ' shall be overthrown . . . He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries & the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold & of silver & over all the precious things of Egypt : & the Libyans & the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
THE FALL OF YEMEN . . . THE ' IRANIAN THREAT ' TO SAUDI ARABIA . . . ( & WORLD STABILITY )
The Middle East is unravelling rapidly. Now Yemen has been over-run by a pro-Iranian Shi' ite militia , with militants & followers in the streets chanting " Death to America !! Death to the Jews !! Victory to Islam ". Furthermore this power shift now presents a serious security threat to the ' Sunni ' Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With a ' hostile ' Shi'ite regime now on its southern border & controlled by its arch nemesis Iran , the global oil-giant Saudi Arabia is potentially at risk. If Saudi Arabia were to fall , world stability would crash.
These events are ' prophetic precursors ' to coming events foretold over 2,500 yrs ago & in one chapter of the Bible. The prophet Isaiah wrote of a grievous vision , wherein he describes dark events to befall Arabia ( known as ' the desert of the sea ' or Kedar ) This vision describes in sequence the ominous approach of 2 sinister forces , ' the treacherous dealer ' ( Iran ) & ' the spoiler ' ( Russia ). The chapter details the ' fall of Babylon ' ( Iraq ) under the whirlwind advances of the Russian - Iranian confederacy before Saudi Arabia also falls " within a year ". These events we are witnessing in the Middle East , are most assuredly the unfolding of latter-day Bible Prophecy
Isa 21v1-2 - The burden of the ' desert of the sea ' ( Saudi Arabia ). As whirlwinds in the south pass through ; so it cometh from the desert , from a terrible land ( Iran ). A grievous vision is declared unto me ; ' the treacherous dealer ' ( Iran ) dealeth ' treacherously ' & ' the spoiler ' ( Russia ) ' spoileth '. Go up, O Elam ( Iran ) : besiege , O Media ( Iran ) ; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease . . . v9 he answered & said , Babylon ( Iraq ) is fallen , is fallen & all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground . . . v16 The Lord said unto me , Within a year . . . & all the glory of Kedar ( Saudi Arabia ) shall fail & the residue of the number of archers , the mighty men of the children of Kedar ( Saudi Arabia ) shall be diminished . . . for the LORD , God of Israel hath spoken it.
ISIS ' THREATENS ' VLADIMIR PUTIN . . . TRIGGER FOR COMING ' RUSSIAN ONSLAUGHT ' IN IRAQ ???
Perhaps a mistake !! . . . Drunk on their success , ISIS ( Islamic State ) has issued a video ' threatening ' Russia's Vladimir Putin over his support of Syria's Bashar al-Assad & vowed to liberate Chechyna from Russian control. This threat drew an immediate & ominous response from Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov who vowed to destroy the Islamic militants. After the bloody Chechen Wars of the 90's & 00's , Kadyrov ( a close-ally to Vladimir Putin ) emerged as a brutal strongman with a fearsome reputation. Widely feared , Kadyrov is well-known for his personal death-squads , mass-killings , torture & other gruesome atrocities. Interestingly , Kadyrov's Chechens & ISIS militants are both adherents of the Sunni Islamic religion , but this clearly will not curb their murderous intents.
In the face of US & Western nations reluctance to deal ISIS a ' death-blow ' could this vicious exchange be the ' catalyst ' for Russia's coming invasion of Iraq , to ( in Kadyrov's own words ) " rid the world of these scum ". With Russia & Iran already having a substantial military presence in Iraq ( including control of Baghdad Airport ) & with Vladimir Putin more aggressively looking to extend Russia's international sphere of influence & power , will the ISIS threat be the ' pretext ' Putin needs to fulfill 2,500 yr old Bible Prophecies ??
Jeremiah 50v41 - Behold , a people shall come ' from the north ' ( Russia ) & a great nation ( Russia ) & many kings ( Iran, Euro nations ) shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. They shall hold the bow & the lance : they are cruel & will not shew mercy : their voice shall roar like the sea & they shall ride upon horses , every one put in array , like a man to the battle , against thee ( Iraq ) O daughter of Babylon ( Iraq )
RAISED FOR ' A PURPOSE ' . . . VLADIMIR PUTIN ► THE COMING " RULER OF THE WORLD "
Vladimir ' Vladimirovich ' Putin - 2nd & 4th President of Russia. In 2014 , the most formidable & feared world leader on the planet !! Is it significant his name ' Vladimir ' actually means ' ruler of the world ' & strangely is included ' twice ' in his name , as if to mark the destiny of this emerging global tyrant. In recent months the world has watched as Putin has belligerently imposed his will , defying US & Western sanctions as he continues to carve off large swathes of Ukraine's territory ( which he describes as ' New Russia ' ) using covert Russian forces , endless lies & diplomatic double-speak. The illegal annexation of Crimea , destabilisation of East Ukraine & even the criminal shooting down of Malaysian Flight MH-17 have all gone largely unpunished by the international community. Emboldened by the feckless & weak response of the West , Putin will continue his aggressive & lawless expansionism into the future , as he rises ' unchallenged ' to become the coming " ruler of the world " & fulfill his prophetic commission.
Amazingly , we can actually know in detail Vladimir Putin's dark future & the catastrophic world events he will soon unleash that will leave the world reeling & in turmoil. God's Word in many clear references describes the coming conquests of this latter-day global dictactor. ProphecyNewsDesk has laid out this stunning array of Bible proofs in a video ( Putin's End-Game revealed in Bible Prophecy ) that provides a comprehensive event-by-event insight into Vladimir Putin's future exploits before his ultimate destruction at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please watch this video to the end to understand these events before they unfold.
Daniel 8v23-25 - In the ' latter time ' ... ' A KING ' of fierce countenance , understanding dark sentences ( ex-KGB ) shall stand up & his power shall be mighty but not by his own power & he shall destroy wonderfully & shall prosper & practise & shall destroy 'the mighty ' ( USA ?? ) & ' the holy people ' ( Israel ) & thro' his policy he shall cause craft ( ' deceit ' ) to prosper in his hand & he shall magnify himself in his heart & ' BY PEACE ' shall destroy many : he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes ( Christ ) . . .
Jer 4v6-7 - I will bring evil ' from the north ' & great destruction. The lion ( Russia ) is come up from his thicket & ' the destroyer ' of the Gentiles ( the nations ) is on his way ; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate & thy cities shall be laid waste.
RAISED FOR ' A PURPOSE ' . . . BARACK OBAMA ► THE END-TIME " TRANSFORMATION " of AMERICA
Barack ' Hussein ' Obama - 44th President of the U.S.A. Elected in 2008 on a platform of " fundamental transformation " of America & awarded the ' Nobel Peace-Prize ' even before taking office , his messianic-like message of ' hope & change ' took America by storm. Seemingly , a man for the ages. Yet 6 years later - his presidency in tatters - he is a figure of international derision. His legacy . . . a littany of domestic scandals & corruption , skyrocketing national debt & a deteriorating US economy . Most perplexing is his foreign policy. Accused of being an ' apologist ' for the Muslim world & an ' isolationist ' , Obama has severely down-sized the US military , reduced USA's power & influence world-wide & refused to substantively confront ( or even name ) ' Islamic ' extremism. After mystifying policies in relation to Libya , Egypt , Iraq , Syria , Iran & most recently Russia , even his most ardent supporters are unable to explain this reversal of long-standing US policies which have left traditional US ' allies ' both disillusioned & vulnerable ... & geopolitical ' enemies ' emboldened & on the move. To all this , President Obama seems ' indifferent & disconnected ' leaving many to question the true intent of his ' transformation of America '. Barack Obama was raised for this purpose ... to fulfill Bible Prophecy !!!
To fulfill scripture in the last days God's people - the nation of Israel - must be totally alone & isolated " all her lovers " having abandoned her. America has always been Israel's most enduring friend & ally . . . no longer !!! Barack Obama's thinly veiled hostility toward Israel is well-documented. He is the ' transformative instrument ' elevated by God Himself , to change geopolitical alliances & set the stage for Israel's coming ' day of trouble '. Need more proof ?? Did you know ??? ... Obama's ' surprise re-election ' in 2012 was the direct result of a catastrophic natural event ( sent by God ) & foretold in unmistakable detail in prophecy 2,500 yrs earlier. Please watch our video detailing this stunning prophecy. It will leave you in no doubt . . . God's Hand is at work among the nations
Daniel 2v20-22 - Blessed be the name of God for ever & ever : for wisdom & might are His : He changes the times & the seasons : He removes kings & sets up kings : He gives wisdom unto the wise & knowledge to them that know understanding : He reveals the deep & secret things : He knows what is in the darkness & the light dwells with him . . . v28 there is a God in heaven that reveals secrets & makes known ... what shall be ' in the latter days ' .
Daniel 4v17 - This matter is ... to the intent that ' the living ' may know that ' the most High ' ( God ) rules in the kingdom of men & gives it to whomsoever He will & sets up over it the ' basest ' of men.

STORM CLOUDS GATHERING OVER ISRAEL . . . APOCALYPTIC WAR IS NEAR !!!
The Gaza Conflict is over . . . or is it ??? Could there be a ' reason ' why Hamas has announced a ' surprise ' pause in fighting . . . to reload in preparation for a wider conflict to come ?? As the fragile Israeli-Palestinian truce holds , dark forces are rising up along Israel's borders on multiple fronts. In recent days Islamist Al-Qaeda rebels have seized large swathes of Syrian territory adjoining Israel's border. With ISIS spreading like a malignant cancer to the north in Syria & Iraq ; rockets being fired at Israel from Lebanon by terrorist group Hezbollah & deeply-hostile Palestinian populations within neighboring Egypt & Jordan ... Israel is facing existential threats on all fronts. All these groups have a deep hatred of Israel & a common goal , the eradication of the Jewish state. How amazing this emerging crisis was actually foretold in the Bible 2,500 years prior !!! God's Word is true & to be trusted.
Psalm 83v2-7 - Thine enemies make a tumult & they that hate thee ( God , the Holy One of Israel ) have lifted up the head. They have taken ' crafty counsel ' against thy people ( Israel ) & consulted against thy 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. The tabernacles of Edom ( Arabs ) & the Ishmaelites ( Arabs ) of Moab ( Jordan ) & the Hagarenes ( Egypt ) Gebal ( Lebanon ) & Ammon ( Jordan ) & Amalek ( Jordan ) the Philistines ( Palestinians ) with the inhabitants of Tyre ( Lebanon )

UKRAINE CRISIS : VLADIMIR PUTIN'S DECEIT & DECEPTION . . . CATALYST FOR COMING GLOBAL CHAOS
Vladimir Putin continues to perplex & confound the international community. Hard on the heals of his lightning annexation of the strategically critical Crimean Peninsula , Putin's ongoing destabilisation of Ukraine is escalating to boiling point. Directly implicated in the downing of Malaysian Flight MH-17 Putin has artfully deflected any culpability , instead masquerading as a ' humanitarian & peace-maker ' sending a massive 280 truck aid convoy to the Ukraine border. Amid deep & justified distrust , many demanded an independent inspection , believing the convoy to be a " Trojan Horse " to bolster Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine. Meanwhile , as the mysterious aid convoy caused an media firestorm , reports emerged Putin secretly dispatched Russian artillery & equipment over the border before Ukraine forces attacked & destroyed a Russian armoured column. As we see this master of ' deceit & deception ' continue to alternate between a self-styled ' peace-loving ' pragmatist & a predatory pariah , how amazing God's Word so accurately described Putin's behaviour over 2,000 yrs in advance ?? Just 3 verses give stunning insight into Putin's coming exploits
Daniel 8v23-25 - In the latter time ... a king of fierce countenance , understanding dark sentences ( ex-KGB ) shall stand up & his power shall be mighty but not by his own power & he shall destroy wonderfully & shall prosper & practise & shall destroy ' the mighty ' ( USA ? ) & ' the holy people ' ( Israel ) & thro' his policy he shall cause craft ( ' deceit ' ) to prosper in his hand & he shall magnify himself in his heart & ' BY PEACE ' shall destroy many : he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes ( Christ ) but he shall be broken without hand

THE RISE OF THE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE . . . ' REIGN OF TERROR ' TO END SOON !!!
In a matter of months , the radical terrorist group ISIS has ' shocked the world ' with its horrific death march across the Middle East. The violence & brutality of these ' apocalyptic death squads ' defies imagination. Unthinkable atrocities ( unseen since the Dark Ages ) inflicted upon its countless victims .... beheadings , crucifixions , indiscriminate killing of women , children & the elderly , all well-documented. So feared & brutal , even the ' terrorist ' group Hezbollah has described ISIS as ' a monster '. With their supreme objective to establish an Islamic Caliphate & the destruction of Israel , this seemingly unstoppable force is now a global threat even powerful Western nations are unable or unwilling to confront. As it spreads , we can expect ISIS will turn its evil eye toward Israel.
Yet God's Word , actually fore-shadowed this latter-day terror & spoke of its coming demise. Ezekiel 34 , in speaking of the coming rule of Christ in God's Kingdom , the transformative blessings God's people Israel will be given & the curses to be removed , makes unmistakable references to these ' latter-day beasts ' that are terrorist groups such as ISIS & their evil , murderous ways. In 2014 & on the edge of Christ's return , nobody in Israel & it's surrounds are killed by actual ' animal beasts '. So what else could these beasts be ?? Its a clear ' figurative ' allusion to the ' savages ' who inhabit the land prior to the Lord's return. Their end is coming soon !!!
Ezekiel 34v23-30 - I will set up one shepherd ( Christ ) over them & he shall feed them , even my servant David ( Christ ) ; he shall feed them & he shall be their shepherd ... I the LORD will be their God & my servant David a prince among them ; I the LORD have spoken it ... I will make with them a covenant of peace & will cause the ' evil beasts ' to cease out of the land & they shall dwell safely in the wilderness & sleep in the woods ... I will make them & the places round about my hill ( God's Holy Mountain - Zion ) a ' blessing ' ... there shall be showers of blessing ... the tree of the field shall yield her fruit ... the earth shall yield her increase ... they shall be safe in their land & shall know that I am the LORD , when I have broken the bands of their yoke & delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them ... they shall no more be a ' prey ' to the heathen ( nations ) neither shall the beast of the land devour them ; but they shall dwell safely & ' none ' shall make them afraid ... they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land , neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them & that they , even the house of Israel , are my people , saith the Lord GOD.

IRAQ'S YAZIDIS ' MOUNTAIN OF DEATH & DESPAIR ' . . . IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR MAN ??
A catastrophic situation is unfolding upon Iraq's Sinjar Mountain. Atop the mountain , an estimated 40-50,000 Yazidi men , women & children have taken refuge having fled the violence & brutality engulfing the region. They are trapped , no food , no water & no shelter. At the base of the mountain , hordes of Islamic State Jihadists await. Having already taken 100's of Yazidi women captive , these murderous Islamic extremists issued the Yazidi people an ultimatum . . . " Convert to Islam or Be Killed ". The Yazidis' plight is desparate. With world leaders & nations ' unwilling ' to provide any meaningful help ( besides dropping food baskets ) this terrible humanitarian crisis will only get worse. It's a foretaste of the escalating violence & chaos that will soon overwhelm all mankind. But there is ' another ' mountain. A mountain of promise , of hope & joy , spoken of repeatedly in God's Word. It is God's Holy Mountain of Zion. It will be the ' Throne of the Lord ' & the centre of worship in God's coming Kingdom on earth. A mountain that both now & in the future will be a ' true source ' of refuge & comfort to those who seek to follow & trust in the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 2v2-4 - It shall come to pass in the last days , that ' the mountain ' of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains & shall be exalted above the hills & all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go & say , Come ye & let us go up to the mountain of the LORD , to the house of the God of Jacob ( Israel ) & He will teach us of His ways & we will walk in His paths : for out of Zion shall go forth the law & the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge among the nations & shall rebuke many people & they shall beat their swords into plowshares & their spears into pruninghooks : nation shall not lift up sword against nation , neither shall they learn war any more.
WORST ' EBOLA OUTBREAK ' IN HISTORY . . . GLOBAL CONTAGION IS COMING !!!
An international health crisis has arrived prompting the World Health Organisation to issue a global public health emergency. With over 960 deaths from this terrifying virus in recent days & the viral infection spreading in short time to multiple countries in West Africa ( incl. Sierra Leone , Liberia , Nigeria & Guinea ) , world leaders & health officials are scrambling to halt this rampant epidemic. It follows a long line of global pandemics , viruses & diseases in recent years , including Aids , Mad Cow , SARS , West Nile Virus , Bird Flu & H1N1 Swine Flu. Amazingly , this exact phenomena was accurately foretold in God's Word the Bible 2,000 yrs ago. Matthew , Mark & Luke all spoke of the outbreak of ' pestilences ' which would arise ' in the last days ' prior to the ' Time of Great Tribulation ' before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. If we consider the other global conditions listed in the same verses . . . there can be no doubt !!
Matthew 24v6-8 - Ye shall hear of wars & rumours of wars : 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 . . . All these are the ' beginning of sorrows '

RUSSIAN SANCTIONS . . . TRIGGER FOR VLADIMIR PUTIN'S COMING ' MID-EAST INVASION '
In the aftermath of the Malaysian MH-17 tragedy , western leaders abhorred by the blatant & brutal criminality of this incident & the unmistakable fingerprints of Vladimir Putin , have found new resolve & are now moving to further tighten economic sanctions against Russia. Instead of contrition , a defiant & combative Vladimir Putin has threatened retaliatory sanctions against the EU & further directed his ire at the EU's most vocal voice Britain , warning Russia will confiscate the Russian-based assets of major UK energy companies such as BP & Shell , if EU sanctions are imposed. Further escalating tensions , Putin's Armed Forces also shot down 2 Ukrainian military jets in Ukrainian airspace in the days following MH-17. Amid troubling reports Russia is now pouring weaponry & equipment into East Ukraine & moving some 15,000 troops to the border , Putin's forces have been caught launching artillery fire from Russian territory against Ukrainian forces - the ' first time ' since 1939 a European country has been attacked by another sovereign country. In the face of US-EU unwillingness to confront Russia militarily ( repeating the pre-WW2 miscalculation ) the expanding sanctions against Russia will be the trigger that unleashes Russia's military expansionsim far beyond the Ukraine.
HOW AMAZING !!! Over 2,500 years ago God's Word , the Bible described the exact circumstances & reason for Russia's coming latter-day descent into the Middle East. In Ezekiel 38 , in His own words , God states explicitly He will bring this dictator ( ' Gog ' ) with his confederate allies , to ' the land ' against the mountains of Israel. In vivid language , he says He will put ' hooks in the jaws ' of this northern invader indicating severe economic necessity ( not ' choice ' ) will drag Russia down to the riches & resources in the Middle East to ' take a spoil '. As we see more sanctions cripple Russia's crumbling economy . . . Russia will be ' preparing itself ' !!!
Ezek 38v3-8 - I am against thee O Gog , ' chief prince ' of Meshech & Tubal ( Russia ) : I will turn thee back & put hooks into thy jaws & I will bring thee forth & all thine army , even a great company Persia ( Iran ) , Ethiopia & Libya with them , Gomer & all his bands ; the house of Togarmah ( Turkey ) of the north quarters & all his bands & many people with thee. Be thou prepared & prepare for thyself , thou & all thy company that are assembled unto thee & be thou ' a guard ' unto them. In the latter years , thou shalt come into ' the land ' that is ' brought back from the sword ' & is ' gathered out of many people ', against the mountains of Israel

INTERNATIONAL ' AL-QUDS ' DAY . . . THE RISING ' SCOURGE ' OF ANTI-SEMITISM
As the Israel-Gaza conflict rages , the dark spectre of ' anti-semitism ' is re-igniting around the world. Since 1979 , Islamic groups have annually held a ' protest day ' known as Al-Quds Day ( ' Jerusalem ' Day ~ Quds is the city's Arabic name ). Held on the last Friday of the ' Muslim ' Ramadan festival , Quds Day is to support the Palestinian people & to protest Israel's control of Jerusalem. This day of protest typically is an emotion-charged & often-violent day , a day for Israel's enemies to vent their hate-filled rhetoric & rage. It is part of a ' global propaganda campaign ' built on ethnic racism , mis-information & ignorance & now spreading like fire world-wide. In 2014 , protests were held throughout the Middle East , Latin-America , Europe ... & even in Canada & Australia. This ever-widening campaign also includes the on-going global effort to isolate Israel politically & cripple her economically by the ' Boycott , Divestment & Sanction ' movement. This ' false narrative ' of anti-Semitism will continue to escalate & tighten on God's people as her enemies seek to crush & destroy Israel & retake the Holy City of Jerusalem. But it has all been foretold in God's Word. In fact , God Himself has ' a warning ' for those who seek to destroy His people Israel & take His city . . . Fulfilment coming soon !!!
Isaiah 60v2,12-16 - Darkness shall cover the earth & ' gross darkness ' the people but the LORD shall arise upon thee ( Jerusalem ) & his glory shall be seen upon thee. For the nation & kingdom that will not serve thee ( Jerusalem ) shall perish ; yea , those nations shall be utterly wasted. The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee ( Jerusalem ) . . . to beautify the place of my sanctuary & I will make the place of my feet glorious. ' The sons ' also of them ( Arab nations ) that afflicted thee shall ' come bending ' unto thee ( Jerusalem ) & all they that despised thee shall ' bow themselves down ' at the soles of thy feet & they shall call thee " The city of the LORD , The Zion of the Holy One of Israel "
MALAYSIAN MH-17 DISASTER . . . ' FORETASTE ' of PUTIN'S BRUTAL AMBITIONS
Fearful events continue to shock the world. ' Global crises ' are spreading & world leaders & nations are helpless to stem the emerging wave of uncertainty , violence & chaos. Now , we see the convergence of a ' geopolitical ' perfect storm. With the horrific downing of Malaysian Air Flight MH117 - global fears are realised - as Vladimir Putin stands menacingly as a dark shadow over this incident that has sparked international outrage. As the President of a global super-power ( with the world's largest & most lethal nuclear arsenal at his fingertips ) the world watches nervously as Putin displays increasing lawlessness & disdain for world order.
Already extending his power & influence through the Middle East & Latin-America , Putin continues to ' openly destabilise ' the Ukraine militarily & threaten the wider EU strategically. With Vladimir Putin now clearly implicated in the shooting of Flight MH-17 we now see the leader of a major nation & superpower participating in ' state-sponsored terrorism '. This man's ambition knows no limits & he will soon inflict distress & chaos among the nations. Please watch our informational video which lays out the Bible Prophecies which fully detail the ' coming exploits ' of this brutal ' end-times ' dictator , before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ
Luke 21v25-28 - There shall be signs in the sun & in the moon & in the stars & upon the earth ' distress of nations ' with perplexity . . . Men's hearts failing them for fear & for looking after ' those things ' which are coming on the earth : for the ' powers of heaven ' ( ' earthly political ' ) shall be shaken . . . And then shall they see ' the Son of man ' ( Lord Jesus Christ ) coming in a cloud with power & great glory . . . When these things ' BEGIN ' to come to pass , then look up & lift up your heads ; for your redemption draweth nigh
ISRAEL-GAZA CONFLICT . . . ' PRE-CURSOR ' TO GLOBAL CHAOS !!!
After the 9 month US-led ' Peace Process ' collapsed , the outbreak of war took only a matter of weeks. As the Israel-Gaza conflict escalates , we know this begins a series of cascading global events that will forever change this world. Multiple prophecies in the Bible , foretell of a latter-day war between Israel & its neighbours , principally the Palestinians ( ancient Philistines ) , the Syrians & those in Lebanon ( Zidonians ). Though Israel will ' prevail ' in this coming war against the Palestinians , Syrians & Lebanese militias afterward Israel will be ' greatly weakened ' & defenceless. Into this power vacuum will sweep the great ' latter-day confederacy ' from the north. Russia with Iran , Turkey , EU nations & Libya will then not only overflow & occupy many Mid-East nations ( incl. Israel & Egypt ) but will also bring ' the final devastating destruction ' of Israel's inveterate enemies , the Philistines ( Palestinians ). The prophet Jeremiah Ch.47 provides clear & unmistakable context of the dramatic events ' soon to come ' in the Middle East.
Jer 47v2-4 - Thus saith the LORD ; Behold waters ( nations ) rise up ' out of the north ' ( RUSSIA , Iran & Euro nations ) & shall be an overflowing flood & shall overflow the land ( Israel ) & all that is therein ; the city ( Jerusalem ) & them that dwell therein : the men shall cry & all the inhabitants of the land shall howl ... Because of ' the day ' that cometh to spoil all the Philistines ( Palestinians ) & to cut off from Tyrus & Zidon ( Lebanon ) every helper that remaineth : for the LORD will spoil the Philistines ( Palestinians )

ISRAEL-GAZA CONFLICT . . . BUT ALSO ... ' SURE SIGN ' of CHRIST'S RETURN & GOD'S KINGDOM ( on EARTH )
The unfolding Israeli-Palestinian War in Gaza is a major ' latter-day sign ' of momentous events soon to overwhelm mankind. As the current conflict expands to include Syria & Lebanon ( & ultimately , the invading Russian host ) the Bible once again provides absolute certainty about events to follow. Just as Jeremiah 47 clearly spelt out the coming ' final destruction ' of the latter-day Philistines ( Palestinians ) at the hands of the Russian confederacy , the prophet Zechariah uses the exact same context to describe ' the sequence ' of events that will follow :- 1 ) the Palestinians' final destruction .... 2 ) the long-awaited return of the Lord Jesus Christ to judge the nations ... before 3 ) the establishment of Christ's rulership of a world-wide ' Kingdom ' characterised by ' peace '. While many other events will fall between these 3 major events , they will most assuredly come as foretold . . . God's Word is certain !!!
Zechariah 9v6-10 - 1 ) I will ' cut off ' the pride of the Philistines ( Palestinians ). I will take away his blood out of his mouth & his abominations from between his teeth . . . 2 ) Rejoice greatly , O ' daughter ' of Zion ; shout , O ' daughter ' of Jerusalem : Behold thy King cometh unto thee : he is just & having salvation ; lowly & riding upon an ass & upon a colt the foal of an ass. And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim & the horse from Jerusalem & the battle bow shall be cut off & 3 ) he shall ' speak peace ' unto the heathen ( nations ) & his dominion shall be from sea even to sea & from the river even to the ends of the earth.
