In 1877, Thomas Edison invented a phonograph that played recordings on tinfoil cylinders. Technology advanced, the tinfoil cylinders became obsolete, and the vinyl record was invented in 1940.
The vinyl record was a flat rotating disc with a continuous groove.
A phonograph needle was supposed to stay in the groove and read and play recorded music (or whatever) as the vinyl record rotated.
It was common for vinyl records to get scratched so that the needle couldn’t continue along the intended groove.
When the needle couldn’t get out of the scratched groove, the same words would be repeated over and over again.
This was the beginning of the phrase “It sounds like a broken record.”
My articles sometimes sound like a broken record, but rest assured that Bible prophecy is advancing as intended by God at an incredible pace.
First, an article about an Aug. 5, 2018, sermon by Rev. Hank Kunneman caught my attention (One Voice Ministries; https://www.ovm.org/; https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/rev-kunneman-trump-friend-church-and-israel-news-media-are-anti-christ).
According to the article, Rev. Kunneman called Pres. Trump a “friend of the Church and a friend of Israel,” and he called the news media “anti-Christ” and “anti-God.”
In essence, Rev. Kunneman said there is a war going on between this pro-Church, pro-Israel President and the ungodly, anti-Christ news media.
He said Pres. Trump wants to restore America’s values, but ungodly people are using the media to say men being with men, women being with women, and taking prayer out of the schools is right.
Rev. Kunneman reminded his listeners that America came very close to having a President that supported the views of the ungodly media (abortion, gay issues, etc.).
I will add that America came very close to having a candidate that would have nominated judges that would have legalized restrictions on Christianity (she said they would have to change some of their values), supported world government, world religion, wealth redistribution, etc.
Rev. Kunneman pointed out that people need to decide between what the Bible says is truth and what the ungodly news media says is truth; and, if people decide against the Bible, there is something wrong with them.
Second, on Aug. 5, 2018, it was reported that Jared Kushner sent out an e-mail in January saying the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is corrupt, inefficient and doesn’t help peace.
Mr. Kushner’s opinion of the UNRWA sounds like the coming world government of the Antichrist: corrupt, inefficient and doesn’t help peace.
In fact, another article four days later referenced a report by a “highly-respected” former UN employee that said an estimated 3,300 pedophiles are currently working for the UN, and staff members at the UN could have raped up to 60,000 children.
He added, “We are looking at a problem on the scale of the Catholic Church, if not bigger.”
How does a Church that is very involved in pedophilia and child rape fit into Bible prophecy (It will play a big role in MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH)?
The U.S. is the largest contributor to the UN budget, and every U.S. voter needs to seriously consider what the candidates for office support.
Third, this week, a friend sent an article to me that was dated June 7, 2018.
According to the article, researchers at a Japanese University have presented a paper at a large prestigious international conference that suggests the building of divine robots called Theomorphic Robots.
These scientists are working on two prototypes of robots that can talk and be used as tools for contacting the divine.
These robots will be programed to pray with users, quote Scripture and recall things about the user’s life.
The researchers want institutions such as the Roman Catholic Church to approve of the construction and use of these robots.
They say these robots won’t be treated like they are God, but they will be treated like they are messengers of God, servants of God and carrying out God’s will.
Three things struck my mind on this:
One, the False Prophet will build an image of the Antichrist that will talk, and people will worship it (Rev. 13:14-15).
Two, the Antichrist will be worshipped as God and sit in the Temple and say he is God (II Thess. 2:3-4).
Three, Satan is trying to replace God, and robots praying for people instead of believers praying for them.
Fourth, Pres. Trump has announced his intention to impose economic sanctions on Russia in response to Russia using nerve gas to attack a former spy in Britain.
On Aug. 10, 2018, Russia’s Prime Min. Dmitri Medvedev said this could be called “a declaration of economic war . . . and it would be necessary, it would be needed to react to this war economically, politically, or, if needed, by other means. And our American friends need to understand this.”
I ask, “Does Russia’s attack on Israel to take a spoil and a prey, to take Israel’s silver and gold, cattle and goods in the latter days and latter years (Ezek. 38:8, 13, 16) fall into the category of economic, political or other means?”
I know I sound like a broken record, but I believe the latter days and latter years have arrived.
