Massive military movements
In recent days there have been numerous reports of massive transports of military equipment and troops from all over the USA. These include tanks and other armored vehicles, trucks, artillery, heavy machine guns and other military gear. Great secrecy surrounds these shipments, drivers joining convoys have no idea where they are headed, they are told they will not know until they get where they are going. There are reports of people in urban areas who attempt to photograph these shipments having their cameras confiscated and the pictures erased. The only official statement on the movement I have heard has been, “it’s to protect the citizens.” Yeah, right! Tell me pigs can fly too. More likely, police state preparations.
It is estimated that FEMA has set up some 200 camps around the USA. Their purported use is for housing refugees in the event of a major disaster, or possibly in the event of an economic collapse if cities become unlivable. But there are several problems with this idea.
•All the FEMA camps put together could not house half the citizens from one major city, let alone all the cities with populations of a million or more.
•Leaked army manuals have shown one planned use to be reprogramming-brainwashing-of political dissidents.
•These camps are equipped with huge gas furnaces and stockpiled with thousands of plastic cremation vaults capable of holding three or four bodies apiece. Some reports say they are also equipped with guillotines.
•These camps are also located next to railroads where massive numbers of people can conveniently be transported in and dumped into these camps. I leave you to draw your own conclusions as to what these camps really are for. This information is all available on the Internet.
I believe all these are preparations for martial law, and indeed one of the persons reporting on the troop movements was informed that full martial law is just around the corner. This is just a prelude to the great tribulation and life under the Antichrist.
Law and disorder
Time was, you could leave your keys in your car and your doors unlocked, and no one would bother you. Police only went after criminals, and were respected by law-abiding citizens. And crimes were actually things that were crimes-murder, robbery, rape etc. Now people are being jailed or threatened with jail for such mundane things as planting a garden in one’s front yard, or holding a Bible study in one’s own home. Meantime the state of Michigan is commanding all pig farmers to kill all their livestock, misusing and misinterpreting a law intended to keep ocean going ships from dumping ballast water containing invasive sea creatures into the Great Lakes to enforce their tyranny. Mega corporations are tampering with genetics and planting crops with genes from unrelated species, even bacteria, spliced into them, letting them contaminate fields around them, then suing owners of same for infringing their patents. And our government seems to be actively taking the side of these corporations. Not only is this grossly unfair, it is threatening to pollute the entire gene pool worldwide, which could lead to massive famines. Jesus predicted famines, along with numerous other things, as signs of the end of the age (Matthew 24).
Visions and apparitions of the Virgin Mary, styled as “Queen of Heaven” and “Co-redemptrix with Jesus” have been occurring with increasing frequency around the world. Many believe these to be the actual Virgin Mary, and worship of the Virgin Mary is widespread in the Church of Rome. However, “Queen of Heaven” is the name of a pagan deity dating all the way back to the days of Nimrod. These apparitions are demonic in nature, and the claim of Mary as “co-redemptrix” with Jesus is blasphemy. Jesus alone is the Redeemer of mankind, and He Himself said so (John 14:6). We will likely see a continuing increase in these and other demonic apparitions as the end draws on, and I believe this to be just one more of a plethora of signs that we are right at the end of this age.
Gay rights [gay arrogance]
50 years ago homosexuality was something you just didn’t talk about, especially in mixed company. Now we have these (so-called “gays”) parading their shame in the streets, demanding rights nobody else has, and wanting to be made into a special privileged class. They talk a good talk on tolerance, but are most intolerant of anybody who dares to disagree with them. Witness the big Chick-Fil-A flap. God calls homosexual behavior an abomination, and it is condemned in both the old and new testament as worthy of death (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:27-32). . Like the Sodomites of Sodom and Gomorrah, so arrogant they wanted to rape angels, so are the homosexuals of today, who want to force their vile filth on the rest of us. Homosexuality coming out in the open is said to be the last stage of decay in a nation, before it implodes from within and ceases to exist. As God judged Sodom and Gomorrah for this aberration, so will He judge America if we don’t repent. We may already be past the point of no return.
Prophecy of the Popes
This is a very interesting prophecy that was made by a Jesuit priest, St. Malachy, back somewhere around 1500. In this prophecy he listed all the popes from his time to the present. With each pope he gave a brief poetic description of some attribute or sign or hint of something about that pope. With the final pope, Peter the Roman, he gave a prophecy that he would reign in the midst of great tribulations, and during his reign Rome would be destroyed. We are on the next to the final pope now, and the predictions up to now have been remarkably accurate. Rumor has it that the present pope, Benedict XVI is set to retire sometime this year. Much more information about this is available in the book, Petrus Romanus by Tom Horn and Chris Putnam, available from www.SurvivorMall.com .
Israel and the Mideast
Things are rapidly coming to a head between Iran and Israel, with both the USA and Russia sitting in the middle of things with warships in the area. There are rumors that Israel may soon make a pre-emptive strike on Iranian nuclear facilities which are being rapidly hardened against attack, and some are saying this could turn into World War III. Wars and rumors of wars are one of the signs Jesus predicted for the end times (Matthew 24:6) Then there is the Syrian situation. If Syria decides to invade Israel, whether to gain support from surrounding Muslim nations or for some other motive, it could easily pull the trigger on Israel dropping a nuke on Damascus, fulfilling Isaiah 17:1 and following. And this could be the hook in the jaw that brings Russia into the fray, fulfilling Ezekiel 38-39.
There are many things that point to 2012 as the year something big is going to happen.
•The Mayan calendar. This is the much ballyhooed Mayan Long Count calendar that ends with the winter solstice 2012, which is supposed to be the start of a new age and is supposed to be accompanied by the appearance of their snake god, quetzacoatl.
•The Inca calendar. This calendar ends on December 23, 2012, and also marks the start of a new age. According to Inca legend this will bring in great calamity that only a few will survive.
•The Cherokee Rattlesnake prophecy. The Cherokee Indian calendar also ends in the year 2012, and is supposed to be accompanied by the appearance of a feathered flying serpent.
•Prophecy of the Popes. In 1951 a French Jesuit priest named Rene Thibaut published a book in which he explored the time of the final pope by various Latin cyphers and numerics and even calculations with lunar cycles. These all arrived at the coming of the final pope in 2012. A calculation using the average length of a pope’s reign multiplied by the number of popes in the prophecy also arrives at the year 2012. And you should keep in mind, the year 2012 wasn’t even on the radar when this book was written.
•Web bots. Some claim that a bot used to chart chatter on the Web drops off the chart in 2012. Also a program written to track variations in I Ching over time is said to drop off to infinity when it comes to 2012. I cannot verify the accuracy or veracity of these claims, but it does make an interesting proposition.
I can’t say with any certainty that the rapture will happen in 2012, but if I were a betting man I would call it a good bet.
We are truly in perilous times. We may have to go through some tough times before Jesus comes in the air to call us home, but nevertheless our evacuation could come any day now. We must be ready at all times. God allowed Jesus to be crucified for our sins out of His grace and mercy, so that we wouldn’t have pay our sin debt in an eternal hell of torment. His resurrection is proof that His sacrifice has paid our sin debt. But for that sacrifice to be effective for you, you must receive it by faith by inviting Jesus into your life by an act of your will. Refusing or neglecting to do this means you risk being left behind to go through the great tribulation and endure the wrath of God being poured out on this Earth for seven years, and most likely ending up in hell for eternity. If the evacuation of the saints comes and you haven’t received Jesus into your life you WILL be left behind, and most likely be killed early on in the seven years. And if you die without Jesus you most certainly will go to hell, to face judgment at the Great White Throne of God, and be cast into the lake of fire for all of eternity.
For those of us who are already saved, Jesus didn’t save us just to sit around on our blessed assurance and let the rest of the world go to hell. We are Jesus’ hands and feet and voice in this world, and it is only by the foolishness of our preaching the word of Jesus that we can bring others to salvation (1 Corinthians 1:18, 21). Yes, you can get saved and live like the world and still get to Heaven, but you will have no reward when you get there, and you will not have the peace and satisfaction here that comes from serving God like He called you to do. Further, Jesus says if you are ashamed of Him and His words before men He will be ashamed of you when He comes in the glory of His Father, and the holy angels (Mark 8:38). Is that what you want? I didn’t think so.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that through Him the world might be saved. He that does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:16-18.
Let’s all get busy and work to win souls to Jesus before it’s too late. Once the rapture occurs our work on Earth is over.
