End Times Prophecy Report

Jittery Israelis over-run gas mas distribution points – (h/t:T) Dangerous part of the earth, that little patch of desert…
Consensus grows to aid Syrian rebels, but only the right ones – That most elusive and imaginary of animals: The consensus! Only the very best of rebels will be aided. Because we know and you don’t and we NEVER lie!
Syrian army seals Damascus; prepares ‘martyrs’ – (h/t:T) Complete misuse of the term “martyrs.” The word “martyr” literally means “witness” in Greek. It originally meant those who were willing to lay down their lives as a witness for Jesus. Of course, the world does appropriate this term for its own uses (like in this headline).
Suicide bombers and soldiers are not martyrs. They are not witnesses, they are combatants in worldly wars.
That concept of “martyr” is so foreign in America churches these days. Everyone loves Jesus–unless they’re asked to die for Him. Most American Christians won’t even entertain the idea.
Love, one supposes, does have its limits.
“I’m intended for much greater things! Be reasonable: Would a loving Jesus ask that? That’s not for me. Jesus wouldn’t ask me to die for Him!“
Like so many other millions of Christians have done over the centuries.
Like so many are doing right this minute around the world: 500 per day it’s estimated.
Every three minutes, someone in the world is laying down their life because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Depending upon how fast the reader reads, 1, 2, even 3 people will have died as a witness for Jesus Christ in the time it takes to read this little piece.
These Christians are putting their money where their mouth is. But the American churches think these people who are demonstrating the ultimate love for Jesus are losers. That’s for second-tier Christians who don’t measure up. That’s for Christians who don’t know any better.
That’s for the ones who will be left behind.
–2 Timothy 2:12
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
IF these who are “beheaded for a witness of Jesus” supposedly “convert during a tribulation period” and
IF the “tribulation period is entirely a period of wrath not to be experienced by Christians” (as is commonly taught) and
IF the wrath of God is reserved exclusively for His enemies (Nahum 1:2) THEN
If Christians are not purposed in their hearts now–when times are still relatively good–to what extent they will suffer and/or die if need be for the gospel, then when the time comes, their flesh will be able to talk them into doing things they couldn’t imagine that they’d do.
“God knows my heart. He knows that I’m not really denying Jesus. I’ll make it right later. I’ll make it right the next time. How can God want me to die? No! I need to figure this out. I’ll repent later.”
“Martyrs.” It’s a reality everywhere in the world but in America.
“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
80% of Americans think Congress should decide if USA strikes Syria – Ahhh, yes. 80% of Americans still think that the Feds should follow that quaint idea that the country still has something called the constitution. There IS a document called the constitution. Has it been followed? So many parts of everyday life in America run totally contrary to the US constitution.
But so many of those things that are contrary to the constitution have been around for quite some time. Some of those things were made nice and legal-like by later amendments (like the income tax). Some that couldn’t be legalized were just ignored (such as the suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War).
Just some more constitutional baggage that’s been thrown overboard the American ship.
The printing of money is supposedly a responsibility of Congress under our constitution. It’s been 100 years since the Federal Reserve–a private organization–took that responsibility away. Who owns the Federal Reserve?
It’s a secret. So those who believe that a scrap of paper will stop the Feds from doing exactly what they want to accomplish are deluded.
It has never stopped them in the past. It hasn’t stopped them today–ObamaCare is proof of that. It won’t stop them in the future. The constitution is only used when Americans are called upon to fund and to die in a foreign war.
Then we’re told that scrap of paper is worth dying for. We’re told these things by the same leaders who have rendered the constitution powerless.
While we’re on the subject of polls, think back to the summer of 2001. There was no appetite in America for another war in Iraq and a brand new war in Afghanistan. But all it took was an attack on September 11, 2001 and Americans were ready to bomb somebody. Somebody had to die and many didn’t much care who. Somebody was going to pay!
Almost 12 years later, somebody is still paying. We’re fairly sure it’s the wrong somebody. But the reason we’re still at war in Afghanistan has been long forgotten. If there is another “terrorist” attack in America, Syria seems like a convenient enough target. Somebody will pay. Somebody will die.
This time, plenty of Americans will find out that that “somebody” was really them all along.
Australian soldiers accused of mutilating corpses of Afghan insurgents – Americans have already been there, done that and are in prison for it. They hate us for our freedoms.
Russian, NORAD forces unite for exercise – This would never happen if our world worked as the Corporate Media tells us it works.
Latest al-Qaeda fear: Exploding breast implants! – (h/t:T) There will be reasons provided for the most humiliating of searches that will soon be conducted. Forget that: they’re already being conducted. Right now…
42% give Obama Good or Excellent ratings on National defense – This is what this poll asks Americans to believe. Of course, people will believe such tales because they have such a high regard for themselves.”ME? I’d NEVER believe that Obama has been good for national security! But those other guys? They’re morons! Idiots!”
Facebook could add its one billion users’ profile pictures to photo database – meaning even MORE users will be automatically tagged – Anyone who doesn’t believe this has already taken place long ago is whistling past the graveyard.
The US ‘black budget’ is $52 billion – So many things wrong with this article–starting with the headline. If it’s REALLY a black budget, 1) The Washington Post would not know about it; 2) The Washington Post would never print a word about it even IF they did know. IF the Post printed anything factual about the real US black budget, that would be informing the public–which runs contrary to the Post’s obvious reason of existence, which is to misinform the public.
The USA’s black budget likely runs into the multiple trillions.
Nevada’s ‘experiment in the desert’ more popular than ever: Nearly 70,000 gather for weekend of debauchery at Burning Man festival – Truly an American Babylonian festival!
“As many as 68,000 people are enjoying a week of partying, debauchery and excess at Burning Man 2013, the largest outdoor arts festival in North America. The annual art, music and everything-else festival takes place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada and attracts visitors from around the world to spend a week in the remote desert cut off from much of the outside world. Celebrating its 27th year, the event will end on Labor Day when participants will set fire to a giant wooden ‘man’. “
Very interesting pix accompany this article: some surreal, a few creepy.
Speaking of creepy, here’s a pic of Miley Cyrus sporting her “horns” hairstyle
Pop music encourages young to binge drink: Quarter of chart lyrics over three-year period mentioned alcohol – Forget song lyrics. What about parents? That’s such an old-fashioned concept in America: parents.
“Wait on the Lord”
–Psalm 27:14 (h/t:B)
How a lack of money could make you less intelligent: Financial worries ‘reduce IQ by up to 13 points’ – Oh dear! Those dumb-dumbs with dollars have another narrative to justify their stupidity. Ted Turner and Donald Trump are geniuses!
Geniuses I tell you!
Horrifying threat to congresswoman tied to obscure Hare Krishna sect – Everyone group has it’s outliers. Every person has her secrets.
10% think American race relations are better since Obama elected – Polls serve an important place in the narrative of lies constructed by the Corporate Media. Americans are fed the narratives (scripts) through the Corporate Media outlets (newspapers, TV, radio) and then polls “confirm” what the media outlets have been feeding Americans.
In many Americans’ minds, they have an idea of how the world around them works. This idea bears no relationship to reality in many cases. BUT, they are convinced of their ideas because a lie has been repeated over and over to them and then confirmed. The deception is thick and pervasive.
Sadly, this is nowhere truer than in the American Christian churches.
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
–2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
Everyone in America is going to heaven–or is enjoying heaven right here on earth! Wasn’t that what the American Dream was all about? Don’t believe it? America was where the “streets were paved with gold!” But wasn’t that what the Bible says about heaven?
No wonder there’s confusion in the churches today. No wonder there’s problems with the church separating from the world. Who wants to separate from heaven? And if America isn’t quite as heavenly as it was, oh say 10 or 20 years ago? Well, it’s still better than the other places.
For yet a little while longer…
Volcano-chaser travels the globe and braves terrifying eruptions to capture stunning pictures of mother nature at her most destructive – Truly impressive pix with this article.
