On Feb. 6, 2023, Michael Snyder (theeconomiccollapseblog.com) posted an article titled “The Giant Earthquakes That We Just Witnessed in Turkey Are Just The Beginning.”
Snyder cited an Oregon State University (OSU) study by seismologist Tyler Metcalf that said, “a major earthquake in one part of the globe can cause large earthquakes in other parts of the globe.”
According to Snyder and the OSU study, the earthquakes in Turkey could be just the beginning of more earthquakes because large earthquakes often trigger other earthquakes.
I am not predicting more earthquakes in the coming days, but the Bible does teach that earthquakes will increase in frequency and intensity at the end of the age (called the beginning of sorrows; Matt. 24:3-8), and it does teach that the terminal generation will be able to see all the signs beginning to come to pass (Luke 21:28).
It is my opinion that the current generation of people is witnessing Tribulation Period events (world government, tracking all buying and selling, famine, earthquakes, pestilences, economic collapse, etc.) beginning to shape up.
It is just the beginning, but it seems obvious to many that study the subject.
(Note: On Feb. 7-8, 2023, starting one day after Snyder’s article, three small earthquakes struck Israel in 24 hours; 3.9, 3.4, and 3.4.)
(Note: On Feb. 7. 2023, Arab media reported that several small pieces of tile containing verses from the Koran fell off the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount. They blamed Israel for not letting them make repairs to the structure.)
(Note: On Feb. 12, 2023, 6 days after the first earthquake in Turkey and Syria, the total number of deaths in both nations was approaching 35,000 and expected to exceed 50,000. The destruction of thousands of houses and buildings was making it difficult for survivors to find food, water, shelter, fuel, and electricity, and the destruction of roads and bridges was making it difficult for people to get aid to them. Dissatisfaction over the pace of recovery was leading to rioting in some places. Make your salvation sure, and be thankful for what you have. Many people went to bed not knowing they would not be alive the next day. Many others lost everything they had, including loved ones, in a matter of minutes.)
Here is more on the signs of His Coming.
One, concerning immorality, perversion, and reprobate minds at the end of the age: on Feb. 7, 2023, it was reported that Finland has amended the nation’s transgender laws to allow citizens that are 18 or over to legally change their gender once a year.
Why am I getting the impression that there is no end to this kind of thinking?
As I see it, allowing people to legally change their gender every 12 months will make it impossible for everyone to call them by their preferred gender.
How can anyone change their gender in one day?
Two, on Feb. 8, 2023, it was reported that this spring, two groups in the Church of England will meet to explore “the use of gender-neutral terms when referring to God.”
A spokesperson said God has not changed, God is neither male nor female, but the Church has not done a good job of using inclusive language.
As far as I am concerned, the Scriptures were written by holy men of God who wrote what God told them to write (II Pet. 1:21).
Changing just one word to soothe people’s feelings will be just the beginning of changing other things in the Bible (II Tim. 4:3-4).
Three, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog: on Feb. 3, 2023, worthynews.com posted an excellent article by retired Israeli Col. Jacques Neriah.
According to the article, a pre-emptive Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities is no longer a “maybe” for Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu.
It is a matter of “when” to do it and how much preparation is needed.
Israel must prepare for:
- An Iranian counterattack with missiles and drones from many locations.
- An attack by Iranian troops near the Golan Heights in Syria.
- An attack by Hezbollah with thousands of rockets and troops in Lebanon.
- An attack by Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria.
- Attacks on Jewish sites all over the world, on oil and gas wells in the Mediterranean Sea, and on Israeli ships in various parts of the world.
Some big questions include Israel’s ability to permanently destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities, the help of Arab neighbors that fear Iran, and U.S. support.
Four, concerning the desert blooming in Israel during the Millennium: I recently wrote that Israel has built several desalination plants, has filled the Sea of Galilee, and would soon double the amount of water it sells to Jordan.
On Feb. 7, 2023, it was reported that the rains have arrived in most of Israel, including Jerusalem and the desert areas of the south.
The water level in the Sea of Galilee is now less than six inches from the red line at which water must be released, or there will be flooding along the shoreline.
More rain, including snow in the mountains, is forecast for the coming week.
Five, concerning world government: I recently wrote that there were two globalist meetings in Jan. 2023 (The WHO International Health Regulations Review Committee, IHRRC, and the WEF Annual Meeting) that submitted proposals to be voted on at the upcoming WHO Assembly Meeting in May.
I wrote that Dr. Francis Boyle, Prof. of Law at the Univ. of IL, studied those proposals and said they will set up a worldwide totalitarian medical and scientific police state and that every nation on earth could lose their national sovereignty if those proposals are approved.
One very dangerous aspect of those proposals is that the International Health Regulations (IHRs) will be changed from “non-binding” to “legally binding,” and WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus will be empowered to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, whether there is a real one or not, just by saying that the “potential” for one exists.
This is extremely important because, on Feb. 8, 2023, Ghebreyesus warned during a virtual briefing that the H5N1 bird flu virus could become a global pandemic and “potentially” infect humans.
If the IHRs become “legally binding” global laws in May, the only thing that is needed for one man to take over the medical and scientific sovereignty of every nation on earth is for Ghebreyesus to declare that the potential exists for the bird flu (or monkeypox or anything else) to become a global pandemic.
Six, concerning world government: on Feb. 13, 2023, about 10,000 globalists from 150 nations started meeting at the World Government Summit 2023 under the guise of “Shaping Future Governments.”
There were 220 sessions that included discussions of:
- The Challenges of Sustainable Development
- Climate Change
- Global Financial Policies
- The International Economy
- The Future of Healthcare, etc.
Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX, participated in a discussion of the main issues that concern the world.
Klaus Schwab, Founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), discussed the state of the world (including the future world economy and the future of society).
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), discussed the transition to digital healthcare and WHO efforts to eliminate epidemics and chronic diseases.
(Note: After writing about this meeting, I almost deleted it because it doesn’t tell you very much, but I decided that 10,000 globalists from 150 nations plotting to change the world’s economy, healthcare, the future of society, etc., is noteworthy.)
Seven, concerning world government: on Feb. 9, 2023, Poland’s Prime Min. said, “Poland is ready to take co-responsibility for shaping the New World Order.”
He called for more international help for Ukraine and opposed a ceasefire in Ukraine’s war with Russia.
- Why would he say this?
- What does Russia’s war with Ukraine have to do with the shape of the New World Order?
- I believe it is about which regional group Ukraine will be in.
- The EU wants Ukraine in its group, but Putin wants Ukraine in Russia’s group.
- Poland wants Ukraine to be in the EU.
(FYI: Note: be aware that Poland is opposing a ceasefire, that Ukraine is rejecting peace talks, and that war and rumors of war continue in Ukraine.)
Eight, concerning world government: in an interview titled “English journalist James Delingpole speaks to LifeSiteNews about Covid jabs, globalists, and God,” on Feb. 10, 2023, it was reported that Delingpole, a famous writer for several major publications, accused shadowy figures in governments, the media, and Big Pharma of colluding to impose the Babylonian slave system upon the world (make everyone on earth a slave to a very narrow group of controllers).
Delingpole talked about his salvation during this time of global upheaval, he said the things that are going on are part of God’s plan, he said people can oppose the cashless society by using cash, and he encouraged the informed to expose the globalist plan to as many people as possible.
(My opinion: This famous writer, Delingpole, is a very wise man because he realized that this time of global upheaval is leading to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, and he let it motivate him to improve His relationship with God through Jesus.)
Nine, concerning one world government and the tracking of everyone: on Feb. 10, 2023, it was reported that the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) proposed International Pandemic Treaty calls for:
- A “One Health” global surveillance system to monitor and control diseases.
- The 194 nations that belong to the WHO to be required to recognize the WHO’s authority over global health issues.
- The WHO to be allowed to impose its requirements upon all member nations.
Ten, concerning world government, tracking everyone, and reducing the population of the earth: on Feb. 10, 2023, it was reported that a World Health Organization (WHO) official called for:
- A strengthened WHO global surveillance system.
- Standardized global medical care.
- Everyone on earth that is 60 years old or older with an immunocompromised system (weakened immune system) to receive booster shots.
- To require everyone that is at risk (everyone with underlying conditions, healthcare workers, etc.) to be vaccinated.
- To put patients that are hospitalized with Covid-19 on ventilators (which often terminates their life).
Eleven, concerning wars and rumors of wars: on Feb. 11, 2023, Ukrainian Pres. Zelensky said Ukraine wants to be a member of the EU, not Russia, and he pleaded with the EU to give him more weapons, including fighter jets.
The EU has not done it for fear that the war will spread.
The next day, Feb. 12, 2023, Russia responded by launching a barrage of more than 50 missiles at Ukraine.
(Note: On Feb. 13, 2023, it was reported that the U.S. has informed all U.S. citizens living or traveling in Russia to leave immediately and to exercise caution because Russian security services are arresting U.S. citizens on spurious charges.)
Twelve, with Ash Wednesday looming (the beginning of a season of repentance in Catholic and some Protestant churches; Feb. 22, 2023, this year), Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano delivered a sermon that strikes me as amazing.
Here is my understanding of Vigano’s main points:
- This world is sinking into the abyss of evil (violence, slaughter, immorality, etc., some of which is proposed and celebrated by leaders, the media, and even some in the church).
- People need to prepare for what is coming (Jesus called it the time of tribulation) by getting saved.
- Watch out for false teachers that are promoting the globalist agenda, especially Pope Francis.
- Those who promote a New World Order are like the people on the Titanic who were drunk, dancing, and carefree while the ship was moving at full speed toward an iceberg that they did not think could sink it.
- Pope Francis is an enemy of God because he has abandoned the message of salvation and deliverance from the coming tribulation to push the New World Order.
- Even though things are getting scary, even though world leaders, the media, and some in the Church have strayed, salvation was purchased for believers by the death of Jesus on the cross, God is in control, and the Church will escape the coming tribulation that humankind is bringing upon itself.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
