NEWS UPDATE - 23rd August 2023

The frequency at which this world is thrown into turmoil now is incredible. We are seeing a constant increase in commotion, whether it be natural disasters, wars and conflicts, protests, crime, economic instability, it is all happening at an incredible pace.

THE WORLD IS BEING GRIPPED BY WAR FEVER - Not only do we have the continued war in Ukraine with Russia, with many other nations getting involved now, there are fears of a looming war in Niger, Africa (see here). Also, over 3000 US troops have arrived in the Red Sea aboard two war ships due to tensions with Iran (see here). And China is threatening to attack Taiwan (see here). Conflicts also continue between Israel and Palestine on a daily basis.

Now look at what God said would be happening just before the 'harvest' of the earth:

Joel 3:9-13 ...'Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.'

Do you see what the gathering of the world for war is connected with? The harvest - second coming of Christ!

NATURAL DISASTERS ALL OVER THE EARTH - The recent "wild fires" in Maui were described as being like an 'apocalyptic movie' (see here). Also, tourists have had to flee Portugal that has experienced 'apocalyptic' wild fires (see here). Meanwhile, Slovenia has experienced it's 'worst disaster in history' after a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours, causing massive flooding (see here). Also, 33 people were killed in Beijing after 'devastating' flooding there (see here). Not to mention the heatwave killing people around the world, and South America "living one of the extreme events the world has ever seen" with 100 degrees heat in winter (see here).

The world is also gripped by frequent protests and crime rising in many cities across the world. All the while the leaders are tightening their grip upon the world, seeking to introduce a cashless society, digital ID's, and spying through cameras everywhere. Add to that the rise in immorality with the LGBT agenda, and sexual immorality being pushed in our faces on a daily basis. We truly are living in a world of turmoil, with 'love waxing cold' and lawlessness abounding, fast approaching the end and second coming of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:33 ...'So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.'

Matthew 24:4 ...'And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you.'

Romans 13:11-14 ...'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 armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.'
