When I grew up, my school day started with the pledge of allegiance to our flag. Prayer was still allowed in schools back then, high school graduations opened and closed with prayers led by a local ministers. We didn't worry about being abducted, avoiding gang turfs on our way home from school, or listen to music laced with profanities. We didn’t have machines dispensing birth control aids in the restrooms, and immoral behavior was the exception, rather than the norm.
Today, young students are being taught how to pray to Muhammad and wage their own Jihad. Saying the pledge of allegiance is disapproved of in most schools. Elementary school children are forced to watch plays that portray homosexuality as a perfectly normal and acceptable lifestyle choice. Children are taught that parents who object to homosexuality or its indoctrination in our schools are divisive, intolerant, narrow-minded and bigoted.
- Canada has approved marriage between homosexuals.
- America & The World, you have turned your back on God and entered the gates of Sodom.
Signs In The Heaven Earth
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: Acts 2:17
E-23 023 Oh, when I think of that. When God promises anything, God keeps His Word. And when God confirms that Word to you, then believe it. God promised in the last days "He'd pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, and your young men would see visions, the old men would dream dreams, upon My handmaids and maidservants will I pour out of My Spirit." He showing signs in the heavens, and in the earth, and great signs and wonders would take place in the last days. And here we are in the last days, and God's keeping His Word. The Holy Spirit's here. And It vindicates the coming of the Lord Jesus, and the people turn It down and murmur against It. Just like it was…WHY CRY SPEAK CLARKSVILLE.IN 59-1004E
E-5 005 And now, we notice that even nature itself is calling for that day. Nature is groaning. Everything seems to be out of cater. The sun doesn't shine like it used to. Science tells us that the world is bulged out so many feet in the middle that's making the ocean more shallow in the center and deeper towards the north pole and the south pole, and well there's just nothing.
The stars are not in their orbits as they should be, and everything seems to be out of cater. It's all waiting, groaning for that day of perfection, when our Lord Jesus shall come and perfect everything that's imperfected. PROPHET LIKE UNTO MOSES SAN JOSE CA 59-1120
We see that the astronomers are predicting, sometime in this early part or the first part of the month, beginning on the second or the fifth, or somewhere along this month, the Indian astronomers predict the world to blow to pieces. And the American newspapers make fun of it. I do not believe the world's going to blow to pieces, but I do say it's wrong to make fun of it. Because something's fixing to happen one of these days, something similar to that, when the five planets, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus, and–and so forth comes into their–their… They never have did it. Oh, they claim maybe twenty-five thousand years ago, but who was back there to know it? COMMUNION JEFF.IN V-10 N-1 SUNDAY 62-0204
I predict that this has a spiritual application. I believe it's the coming in of the issue of God, that the great revelation of the Word will be opened during this time. Remember, they claim it was three stars came into the orbit when Jesus was born. And this is five, and five is grace, the number of grace. Three is the number of perfection. Five is the number of grace: J-e-s-u-s, g-r-a-c-e, f-a-i-t-h, so forth, number of grace. God ever sends His power to the church, it'll be His grace; it won't be the obedience of the people. And Isaiah said in the 40th chapter, how to cry to Jerusalem, that her warfare was over, yet she was guilty of idolatry, but it was God's grace that was sending it. God sends anything to us, it'll be His grace and not our merits.
So it may mean something. I predict that there will be a change. I don't know what it'll be, but I believe it's fixing to happen. We're on the–right on the eve of it now.
And if any man hungers, let him come to Christ. If any man is thirsty, let him come to Christ; He quenches the thirst. He is the Satisfier of all of our thirst and hunger. COMMUNION JEFF.IN V-10 N-1 SUNDAY 62-0204
In April of 2002, a grand and beautiful lineup of all the bright naked-eye planets ; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn took shape in the western sky at dusk . These five worlds formed and reformed new patterns as they moved against the background stars over the next few nights. All five of them (plus the Moon) clustered within 33° of sky on the evening of May 14th. Sky And Telescope
II Peter 3: 12. "Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Unusual prophecies such as Joel 2:30 and II Peter 3: 12 have become very pertinent to this hour as mankind now possesses the power to literally destroy the very earth itself. Many experts are now predicting a nuclear engagement within the next few years, somewhere in the world.
Rouge countries such as Iran, North Korea and Iraq are known to be pursuing plutonium and uranium on the world’s black markets, as the near development of nuclear weapons. In early 2002 Russia admitted losing several nuclear weapons, including a number of “suitcase” nukes. These devices are said to be small enough that they can be easily concealed in a suitcase only slightly larger than a man’s briefcase, yet they are capable of devastating a large city.
"Why? Because it looks like that there is a state of emergency coming on. The world is in such a shape till any little nation could destroy the whole earth. Men are–has achieved by his scientist–by his scientific researches, and he's got beyond gun powder and poison gas. He's got into hydrogen bombs, and nuclear weapons, and so forth, that they could rise as submarine up out of the ocean somewhere and destroy the world. And everyone's getting afraid. That's why they're holding conferences, trying to get together and find out what we must do."CONFERENCES PHOENIX.AZ 60-0228
And today with the atomic bombs hanging yonder in the hangers, today when the world is on the edge of complete annihilation, and this generation of people to be perished in a second, with the split of one pull, most any little nation can sink the earth.
In a meeting of scientists, the other day, they said there was a gloom. Why, the atomic bomb is a cap pistol, to what they have now. And other nations has got it. If the Pentagon would ever let loose what they've got, there would be no Christmas spirit left, people would be panickly running into the streets, screaming and crying. You couldn't hide. There is no way of hiding.
The end is now. We're at the end, signs and wonders appearing, the Messiah manifesting Himself in the Spirit.WHERE IS HE KING OF JEWS JEFF.IN V-16 N-7 58-1221M
E-101 101 How we thank Thee, that in this great hour, that when all hopes of mortal life has finished… Atomic bombs are laying in hangers, hydrogen bombs, sickness and diseases, germ warfare… O God, and everything the way it is, knowing that the Bible said that man would actually rot in their flesh… But that Angel was given commission, "Don't you touch any of those! Don't you come near those who has the wine and the oil. Don't touch those who has the seal of God upon their forehead."
And we realize that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is the seal of God. For it is written in Ephesians 4:30 "Grieve not the holy Spirit of God whereby you're sealed until the day of your redemption." Lord God, seal this church tonight. Those who are wanting the seal of the Holy Spirit, kiss away every fear, Lord, and seal them with Thy Seal of the Spirit in their hearts, that they'll come forth as newborn babes, crying, "Abba, Father". Grant it, Lord. I commit them to Thee in the Name of Jesus, Thy Son. GOD'S PROVIDED WAY FELLOWSHIP KLAMATH.FALLS.OR 60-0709

- 80 percent of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive right now.
- Every minute they add 2,000 pages to man's scientific knowledge.
- The material they produce every 24 hours would take one person 5 years to read.
- It's commonly estimated that a weekday edition of any major newspaper has more information than the average person living in the 17th century would have come across in a lifetime. And today, thanks to your PC and the World Wide Web, hundreds, if not thousands, of national and international papers and periodicals are at your fingertips.
- Every day, the equivalent of over 300 million pages of text is sent over the Internet.
- According to Dr. Malcolm Todd, one-time president of the American Medical Association, about half of all medical knowledge is outdated every 10 years. In some scientific fields, such as biotechnology, the cycle is shorter than 6 months.
- It is estimated that over 15,000 scientific journals are being published annually, and that throughout the world well over 1,000 new books are published every day!
- In 1970, when Apollo 13 was lost in space, it took NASA computers 90 minutes to work out a way to bring it back. A scientist working with a pencil and paper would have taken over a million years to figure out how to accomplish the same feat.
This message has traveled from the east all the way to the west, and we're on the west coast right now. It can't go any farther, it'll go back east again. It's evening time.
It's evening time in civilization. They've kept bitten, biting, and carrying on, and taking… They bit off an atomic bomb off the tree of knowledge. What are they going to do with it? Destroy themselves. Civilization's at the end. The Church is creeded, and denominated, and twisted, and turned, and all kinds of isms, and so forth, until it's at the end. Human life's at the end. Why, they got no more respect for one another. And motherhood's at the end. Everything seems to be at the end. What is it? It's evening time. That's the time that the Church is going home.

That's all right to know how to split a atom, I wished they'd never found it out. But if they… They have to do it, because this world is hanging today… It had to happen to burst these big holes in the earth to let that lava come forth and rejuvenate this world again to make a new earth, where righteous will walk out upon the dust of the wicked, where sin will be forgotten. Everything has a way of renewing itself. And man who was given to live on this earth by his own wisdom–taking the tree of knowledge instead of the tree of life–he'll destroy the earth that God give him to live on. But those who are still on the Tree of Life shall come to a new heavens and a new earth where there is no sickness or death. Light, Light! Lord; send us Light.

Cashless Society – Big Brother
Modern technology has created a new electronic world without borders. With modern computer technology, satellites, and devices like the Global Positioning System device which can track anyone within 3 feet anywhere in the world, such a feat seems more plausible. And new developments in biometric and smart card technology make such a feat seem more plausible as well. Indeed, Anti-Christ’s world government is not only believable but seems just around the corner.
A new technology has been introduced called Digital Angel™. This technology incorporates a microchip that includes biosensors that can measure the biological parameters of the body and send the information via wireless device to a ground station or computer. It will also have an antenna that can receive signals from GPS satellites, thus pinpointing the location of the wearer.
According the the Digital Angel™ web site, "While a number of other tracking and monitoring technologies have been patented and marketed in the past, they are all unsuitable for the widespread tracking, recovery and identification of people due to a variety of limitations, including unwieldy size, maintenance requirements, insufficient or inconvenient power-supply and activation difficulties. For the first time in the history of location and monitoring technology, Digital Angel™ overcomes these limitations.
Some of it's potential uses, according the their web site includes: monitor patients by doctors, commodities supply chain management, locating people such as small children and the elderly, tracking parolees, people under house arrest, and individuals in witness protection programs, trace valuable items such as art pieces or computer equipment. Of particular interest is its application as an important security measure. It can carry personal identification information and transmit this information via wireless communication with personal computers.
THE WHEAT AND THE TARES
Matt. 13:30."Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. "
Before He returns there must be a uniting of all the religious organizations which make a profession but alter portions of God's Word to fit their creeds and dogmas. At the same time He will separate His Own children by severing them from these through faith in His whole Word. Revelation 18:4. The ecumenical and charismatic movements are a direct fulfillment of this alarming prophecy.
These are just a few of many scriptures pointing to the events and characteristics at the time of the Return of Jesus Christ. The Bride declares with, Paul Romans 13: 11,12. "And that, knowing -the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. "
