The world turned upside down with the violent protests flaring after the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck. The multiple pressures of the pandemic, the lock-down, and the economic downfall are taking their toll. It is an apocalyptic scene.
There are critical End Times signs that are pointing to the imminent Rapture of the Church. In this post, we will examine the uptick of 9 top factors in the latest news reports. These 9 factors will bring about a global “reset” for a New World Order.
1. A Middle East peace plan that allows for the Temple to be rebuilt
He will make a firm covenant
with many for one week,
but in the middle of the week
he will put a stop to sacrifice and offering.
And the abomination of desolation
will be on a wing of the temple
until the decreed destruction
is poured out on the desolator. (Daniel 9:27)
Russia says willing to organize meeting between Netanyahu, Abbas / The Times of Israel, May 23, 2020
Amid growing tensions over new Israeli government’s annexation plans, Russian deputy FM tells PA official that Moscow ready to help ‘in building a constructive’ peace process
In a phone call with PA Civil Affairs Minister Hussein al-Sheikh, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov stressed Russia’s “support of the lawful rights of the Palestinian people for self-determination, including creation of its own independent state within the 1967 borders with the capital in Eastern Jerusalem that would live in peace and good neighborhood with Israel,” according to a Russian Foreign Ministry statement carried by the state-owned TASS news agency.
Bogdanov also reiterated Russia’s “readiness to continue efforts… to provide cooperation in building a constructive Palestine-Israeli negotiations process, based on the known international legal basis of the Middle Eastern settlement.”
The phone call between Bogdanov and al-Sheikh came a day after representatives of the so-called Middle East Quartet held talks Friday.
The Quartet, which is made up of the United Nations, the European Union, the United States and Russia, did not release a statement after the talks.
According to Channel 13, Bogdanov spoke Thursday with the Israeli Chargé d’Affaires in Moscow, Eli Belotserkovsky, to update him ahead of the Quartet meeting, which was held by video conference.
According to the report, senior Russian officials confirmed that Russia is seeking to promote an international conference with the participation of the quartet, several Arab nations and the Palestinians.
2. Increasing “birth pains”
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth… She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. (Revelation 12:1-2,5)
Hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones are becoming stronger, according to a new NOAA study / CNN, May 18, 2020
It is becoming increasingly evident that hurricanes, typhoons, and tropical cyclones worldwide are becoming stronger and potentially more deadly as the globe warms due to the climate crisis, according to a new study.
The study, released on Monday by researchers at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), looked at nearly 40 years of satellite data of global storms.
Researchers found that the probability of storms reaching major hurricane status (category 3 or above on the Saffir-Simpson scale with winds in excess of 110 mph or higher), increased decade after decade.
Kossin and his team’s research spanned the globe, showing that storms across the world are becoming stronger and thus more destructive, as the higher-end of the scale storms produce a disproportionate amount of damage and deaths.
“Almost all of the damage and mortality caused by hurricanes is done by major hurricanes (category 3 to 5),” Kossin said. “Increasing the likelihood of having a major hurricane will certainly increase this risk.”
UN chief warns world leaders virus risks historic famine, new ‘Great Depression’ / The Times of Israel, May 28, 2020
Antonio Guterres says up to 1.6 billion could be left destitute, $8.5 trillion wiped out of global output; US and China absent from video conference on world economy
The UN chief on Thursday warned the largest gathering of world leaders since the coronavirus pandemic began that it will cause “unimaginable devastation and suffering around the world,” with historic levels of hunger and famine and up to 1.6 billion people unable to earn a living unless action is taken now.
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also told the high-level meeting on measures to help low- and middle-income countries that fallout from the crisis could lead to “a loss of $8.5 trillion in global output — the sharpest contraction since the Great Depression of the 1930s.”
3. The invasion of Israel
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you. (Ezekiel 38:1-6)
Iran receives new combat vessels, warns US / Debka, May 29, 2020
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Navy chief rear Adm. Alireza Tangsiri warned the US on Thursday to remove itself from the Gulf, after taking delivery of 110 new combat vessels. They include Ashura-class speedboats, Zolfaghar coastal patrol boats and Taregh submarines, state television reported. ”Wherever the Americans are, we are right next to them… even more so in the near future,” said the admiral.
What Is Russia Doing in Libya? Pentagon Warns of Escalation As Putin Sends Fighter Jets / Newsweek, May 27, 2020
The U.S. has accused Russia of upping the stakes in Libya by sending fighter jets to support Russian mercenaries fighting there, as rival factions struggle for control of the war-torn nation more than nine years after rebels first rose up against late dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
Russian President Vladimir Putin—along with Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia—is backing strongman Khalifa Haftar, who heads the Libyan National Army (LNA). He is fighting the United Nations-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), which is now being supported militarily by Turkey and diplomatically by the U.S. and other Western nations.
U.S. Africa Command (Africom) released a statement Tuesday detailing what it said was the deployment of Russian MiG-29 fighter jets to the Al Jufrah air base in central Libya. Africom said the planes left Russia and stopped in Syria—where they were “repainted to camouflage their Russian origin” before continuing to Libya.
4. The rise of the Beast
They worshiped the dragon because he gave authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to wage war against him?”
A mouth was given to him to speak boasts and blasphemies. He was also given authority to act for 42 months. He began to speak blasphemies against God: to blaspheme His name and His dwelling—those who dwell in heaven. And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation. All those who live on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name was not written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered. (Revelation 13:4-8)
Turkey: The World Order Has Let Down the Palestinians / Jerusalem Online, May 28, 2020
In a televised address this week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened Israel over its new government’s plan to claim parts of the West Bank.
“We are witnessing a new plan of occupation and annexation by Israel that threatens Palestinian sovereignty and is contrary to international law”, Erdogan said, adding Turkey is the “only voice defending the Palestinians today”.
Erdogan went on to assert his country “won’t allow the transfer of Palestinian land to anyone”, and “the world order has let down the Palestinians and has not successfully brought peace, justice, security, and order to this part of the world”.
He referred to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount as the location “holy to three religions” dubbing it “the red line” for Muslims worldwide.
5. The rise of the False Prophet
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamband spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (Revelation 13:11-18)
Pope Joins Forces with IBM, Microsoft to Develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) / News Break, April 22, 2020
The Vatican joined forces with tech giants IBM and Microsoft in February to promote the “ethical” development of artificial intelligence (AI). The Vatican also called for regulating intrusive technologies including facial recognition reports Reuters.
Pope Francis threw his support behind the development of AI during a speech that was read on his behalf at a conference that was attended by Microsoft president Brad Smith and IBM Executive Vice President John Kelly.
The Rome conference was the latest example of the Vatican attempting to act as a sort of partner in leading technology as well as social issues so that they can influence the pioneers of the future, regardless of their religion.
6. Global Persecution of Christians
Then they will hand you over for persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name. (Matthew 24:9)
Religious persecution is skyrocketing during coronavirus pandemic / The Christian Post, April 25, 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has escalated religious persecution against Christians and other minority groups abroad.
Before the coronavirus became a global health crisis, more than 60 countries were already rife with mass surveillance, forced marriages, and violent attacks targeting religious minorities. But while much of the world grinds to a halt during stay-at-home orders, religious persecution is escalating at an alarming pace. The coronavirus is becoming a catalyst for faith-based discrimination internationally.
Asia isn’t the only offending region. In another hostile country where our organization operates covertly due to religious violence, Christian nurses — who are seen as more expendable — are being assigned to the riskiest coronavirus cases.
“We are dispensable,” one Christian relief worker told Open Doors. “It is very painful to see people neglected and ignored because of their faith.” She goes on to explain how she is classified as one of “the filthy people” because she wears a cross necklace. Health care employees considered loyal to the state-sponsored religion, on the other hand, are assigned the less contagious patients in her facility.
In Somalia, an Islamic extremist group al-Shabaab said, as reported by the BBC, that COVID-19 spreads “by the crusader forces who have invaded the country and the disbelieving countries that support them.” Their message – that religious minorities are somehow responsible for the outbreak – incites violence toward anyone suspected of disbelief in Islam, in Somalia and surrounding countries.
Christians in India are under similar pressure. Many were day laborers before the 21-day lockdown, but now they are struggling to even feed their families. The coronavirus crisis has caused significant job loss, leaving many of them without income. The result is a large number of people in urgent need of food, shelter, and medical care.
Perhaps the faith-infused response is for American Christians to use this period of quarantine to remember the more than 200 million Christians worldwide who worship in isolation – before and after the coronavirus. To listen to their cries and learn from their stories. And most of all, to resolve support and advocacy for the beautiful souls who are doubly vulnerable in times of crisis and scarcity.
7. Increasing Apostasy
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that he is coming, and he is already in the world now. (1 John 4:1-3)
America – The Jesuit Review / May 2, 2020
Pope Francis has endorsed the call to “the believers of all the religions to unite together spiritually on May 14 in a day of prayer and fasting, to implore God to help humanity overcome the coronavirus pandemic.”
The proposal for this worldwide day of prayer came originally from the High Committee for Human Fraternity, which was established in September 2019 as a concrete response to the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, during the pope’s visit to the United Arab Emirates in February 2019.
The committee is composed of nine members, including Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Mohamed Hussein Mahrasawi, president of Al-Azhar University, Monsignor Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, personal secretary of Pope Francis, and Judge Mohamed Mahmoud Abdel Salam, advisor to the Grand Imam.
It seeks to promote that Document on Human Fraternity, which reminds people everywhere that we are all brothers and sisters and members of the one human family, a point that is reinforced by today’s call to prayer and fasting.
8. The Formation of a One-World Government
This is what he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, different from all the other kingdoms. It will devour the whole earth, trample it down, and crush it.” (Daniel 7: 23)
Is Prince Charles Using the Pandemic to Take on Capitalism? Vanity Fair, May 22, 2020
In early June, the prince will kick off a plan called “Great Reset” to urge the world to focus on sustainability when rebuilding the world after the pandemic.
Long known as a passionate environmentalist, Prince Charles has been spending the weeks since he recovered from a mild case of COVID-19 connecting the pandemic back to some of his regular concerns. For the last few weeks, he has used writing and social media to promote Pick for Britain, a scheme to solve labor shortages on the country farm. Now he has shifted his attention to the world stage, announcing a project he’s calling “Great Reset,” which will call on world leaders to fix global problems made urgent by the pandemic.
Along with the World Economic Forum, the organization behind the event that gathers some of the world’s richest people for a symposium in Davos, Switzerland, Charles will kick off the project at a virtual event on June 3. In January, Charles started a partnership with the organization called the Sustainable Markets Initiative, and he used a panel discussion at Davos to talk about how he thought capitalism needed to “reset” in order to prevent the worst effects of climate change. Now he’s applying that same logic to the aftermath of coronavirus.
According to the Telegraph, Charles has been working with Klaus Schwab, the WEF’s founder, on projects to help shape recovery from the pandemic. “The Prince believes that as countries and businesses around the world look to rebuild after this crisis, there is a unique but narrow window of opportunity to accelerate the sustainability agenda in a way that puts people and planet first,” a spokesperson for the initiative told the newspaper. “Before industries simply return to the old ways of doing things, this group, led by the prince and Professor Schwab, is setting out to show we have a chance to recover by doing things differently and with a lot less negative impact on the world we live in.”
Are globalists using coronavirus crisis as battering ram to destroy, remake world order? LifeSite News, April 17, 2020
‘The Wuhan virus appears to be an incredible and suspiciously timely gift for the globalists to push through their agenda faster than any of us could have expected.’
After his election, President Trump quickly attempted to fulfill all his campaign promises, the most significant being his many pro-life statements and actions and his withdrawal of the United States from the globalist’s central, New World Order Paris Climate Accord. That latter action was an incredibly gutsy move with almost all the other G20 nations putting heavy pressure on Trump to concede.
Although Trump has been more actively pro-life than we ever expected, unfortunately, on abortion defunding, he was blocked time and again, especially by both Democrat and Republican globalists and otherwise corrupt RINO’s (Republican in name only) in Congress. They had other priorities that prevented him from getting what he promised without sacrificing other, what I presume were more immediate concerns for him, such as saving a dangerously weak U.S. economy and a weak, crumbling U.S. military, both at a time when Communist China was known to be a serious threat to the world.
In 2017, I could not have imagined Pope Francis would have gone as far as he has into pantheism and idolatry, regularly using Masonic phrases such as the “Brotherhood of man” and human fraternity and calling all religions as being willed by God. He has frequently met and consulted with numerous, world-leading anti-life, New World Order globalists in the Vatican.
9. The roll-out of the Mark of the Beast
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:11-18)
ID2020 Certification Mark: The Global Call for a Digital ID / Harbingers Daily, March 30, 2020
There is a clear, concerted effort on an international scale to provide a new, device-free, form of digital ID, starting with the displaced and impoverished areas as a pilot and will soon move to be scaled internationally.
Last September 2019, an annual summit was hosted by the ID2020 alliance, composed of significant partners from around the world. Microsoft, GAVI (Global Alliance of Vaccines and Immunizations), The Rockefeller Foundation, and a growing number of partners from international governments, universities, and humanitarian relief programs. The entire summit was sponsored by the UN Office of Information Communications Technology, the UN Refugee Agency, the International Telecommunication Union and the Danish Mission to the UN.
The mission of the ID2020 alliance is “Accelerating technology to ensure that everyone in need has access to a unique digital identity as part of their basic human right.”
Up until now, an international digital identification system would have been unheard of with the amount of economically and technologically undeveloped corners of the world. With an equal drive to get everyone vaccinated, GAVI (Global Alliance of Vaccines and Immunizations) and the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation play a pivotal role in the ID2020 alliance’s mission.
During the 2019 summit, ID2020 announced it’s latest program “Recognizing the opportunity for immunization to serve as a platform for digital identity, this program leverages existing vaccination and birth registration operations to offer newborns a persistent and portable biometrically-linked digital identity.”
With an estimated 89% of children without identification supported by GAVI, these areas are the perfect targets to test the so-called “New model of ID.”
ID2020 has acquired strategic partnerships with organizations whose primary functions are digital financial services and applying solutions for a completely digital user-friendly wallet. Everest, an organization that began working with the Indonesian government in 2018 and recently announced at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, as ID2020’s first ‘Certification Mark for digital identity solutions,’ Kiva Protocol and Gravity.Earth.
Everest claims to be “The world’s first and only device-free globally accessible, digital transaction protocol with built-in identity.”
Everest defines itself as a “decentralized platform incorporating a massively scalable payment solution, Everchain, with a multi-currency wallet, EverWallet, and a native biometric identity system, EverID. Everest delivers a complete solution for a ‘new economy.’” They are the first platform that combines Biometric identity with a digital wallet.
Based upon the convergence of these 9 factors, there is a very high probability that the Rapture is imminent, and that the 7 year Tribulation starts shortly. It is the prophesied Day of the Lord:
The great Day of the Lord is near,
near and rapidly approaching.
Listen, the Day of the Lord—
then the warrior’s cry is bitter.
That day is a day of wrath,
a day of trouble and distress,
a day of destruction and desolation,
a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and blackness,
a day of trumpet blast and battle cry
against the fortified cities,
and against the high corner towers.
I will bring distress on mankind,
and they will walk like the blind
because they have sinned against the Lord.
Their blood will be poured out like dust
and their flesh like dung.
Their silver and their gold
will not be able to rescue them
on the day of the Lord’s wrath.
The whole earth will be consumed
by the fire of His jealousy.
For He will make a complete,
yes, a horrifying end
of all the inhabitants of the earth. (Zephaniah 1:14-18)
If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”
