NEWS UPDATE - October 2019


We are living in a time like no other before us. Never before have we seen so much turmoil in so many areas of life like we see today. The civil world, natural world, economic world and religious world are ALL in turmoil. The whole world is convulsing and we need our lives to be consecrated and surrendered to Jesus Christ like never before! Just take a look at some of the recent news from around the world:

"Catalonia decends into violence as Protestors battle with police." (source)

"Hong Kong Protests reach a life threatening level." (source)

"Mass protests in Iraq lead to 100 deaths and 6,000 injuries." (source)

"Army deployed in Ecuador as protests descend into violence." (source)

"Thousands of people arrested in UK as 'Extinction Rebellion' stretches police force." (source)

"Scientists endorse mass civil disobedience to force climate action." (source)

That is just a sample of what is going on in the civil world! And what did the Bible tell us?

Luke 21:25-28 ...'And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.'

In Matthew 24, giving the signs of the end times, Jesus said ... "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." (vs.33). The 'it is near, even at the door' is the second coming of Christ. And we ARE seeing all the signs fulfilled, like never before in history. The whole world is in turmoil - the civil, natural, religious and economic world are in 'perplexity', just as Luke 21 says above. The whole world is being shaken and God is giving us plenty of warning, so that we can be ready, and no one will be without excuse!

The natural world is seeing constant turmoil, just like the earthquake that hit the Philippines last night which killed 4 and injured dozens. The natural world is constantly shaking, with earthquakes, volcanoes and storms raging, like the typhoon that hit Japan a few days ago, which killed over 70 people. And the economic world is not much better, with financial troubles plaguing nations all over the earth, with the IMF stating that the global economy faces a $19 TRILLION debt timebomb.

We are truly seeing ALL the signs of the end times being fulfilled today like never before. But what will the answer to these troubles be? Now that is the interesting part!

Ultimately, there is only one TRUE answer to the world's troubles, and that is seeking the TRUTH in the Lord Jesus Christ and surrendering our lives to Him and to God's will. BUT! The world at large will seek a DIFFERENT solution, which we were foretold in Bible prophecy. Let me give you an example from a recent news article regarding the trouble in Hong Kong:

"Tens of thousands of mostly young pro-democracy activists rallied in Hong Kong on Monday in the first legal protest since the introduction of colonial-era emergency laws and pleaded for help from the United States ... Speakers urged the United States to pass a Hong Kong human rights act to ensure democracy for the former British colony, which returned to Chinese rule in 1997. "Make Hong Kong Great Again", read one poster. Some protesters waved the U.S. flag and carried "Uncle Sam" recruitment posters reading "Fight for Freedom, Stand with HK". All of the Hong Kong people feel hopeless and the government hasn't listened to our voices so we need the USA to help us, said protester Edward Fong, 28." (source)

Who are these people looking to for help? Are they looking to Jesus Christ? No, they are looking to AMERICA for help. Just as the religious world looks to the Vatican for help and direction, the civil world looks to America as the leader, and this was prophesied to happen in Revelation 13. The two 'beast' kingdoms - the Papacy (first beast) and America (second beast) are the two 'kingdoms' that would lead the civil and religious world in the end times. And we are told in Revelation 13 that America would 'cause the earth to worship the first beast' [Papal Rome] and 'cause all to receive a mark in their forehead or right hand.' So by looking to America for help, what are the people of the world going to end up receiving? The mark of the beast, which is the mark of the first beast, the Papal Church of Rome. And what does the Vatican want enforced around the world in the name of 'religious liberty' and 'common good of all'?

"In respecting religious liberty and the common good of all, Christians should seek recognition of SUNDAYS and the Church's holy days as LEGAL HOLIDAYS." (Catholic Catechism, #2188).

Notice that they tie this Sunday law up with 'religious liberty and common good of all'? And what has America now raised as an 'international security objective' that is of great importance? 'Religious liberty.' Can you see where this is going to end up? The world is desperately seeking answers to all the trouble, but instead of looking to Jesus Christ and seeking God's will in this, they are looking to MAN for answers. And what will man do? DECEIVE!

Jeremiah 17:9 ...'The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?'

When the world looks to man for solutions, Satan can step in and DECEIVE, which is why we, as God's remnant, need to work with all we have to share the truth with the world. Now is the time to open people's eyes as to what is going on. Now is the time to share the truth of Bible prophecy. Now is the time to share the love and truth of God the Father and His Son Jesus. The signs show us that we are living right at the very end of time. Are you awake? Are you preparing in Christ? Are you daily surrendering your life to Jesus? Are you turning away from ALL sin? There is no time to waste! NOW is the day of salvation!

Vital end time truth - We do not need any church denomination, government or institution of man to save us:
