END TIME CLOCK MOVES FORWARD

End Times Clock Moves Forward With Iranian Events

By Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst - www.watch.org

WASH—KIN—Nov 28—The past ten days has witnessed the end-times clock moving forward as the European Community has uncovered documents that Iran has blueprints for nuclear weapons; Iran has offered oil and natural gas to North Korea in return for help building nuclear missiles; and, President George W. Bush has asked Russia, the linchpin in the Ezekiel 38 Gog/Magog prophecy, to intervene in the Iranian nuclear situation.

President George W. Bush recently said he would rely on Russian President Vladimir Putin to help bring Iran to its senses regarding its nuclear program. But Russia is neck deep with the Iranians in helping them develop nuclear technology. It seems as though superpowers such as the U.S. and Britain are at a loss on how to handle Iran and are blinded by the obvious relationships already in place.

Ezekiel 38 speaks of bringing Gog of the land of MaGog (which is Eastern Russia, …

ARE DEMONS REAL

How Can a Person Become Demonically Possessed in the 21st Century?



“In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, ‘Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are-the Holy One of God!’ ‘Be quiet!’ Jesus said sternly. ‘Come out of him!’ Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.” (Luke 4:33-35)



From time to time, I have received questions about demonic possession and even though I do not fully understand this subject, I thought I would share with you what I have learned. I hope that it will be helpful. I believe this topic warrants attention because I am convinced that demons are increasingly taking possession of people! Human beings need a Savior because we are no match for our supernatural adversary, the devil. His tremendous powers and energies are devoted to ruin and destruction of every human being and he is determined to lead the…

ON THE FAST TRACK TO THE RAPTURE

On the Fast Track to 'The Rapture'

Increasing natural disasters are raising the rapture index, leading some Christians to believe the Second Coming is near.

By Nancy Haught - Religion News Service

Whether you see earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis as natural disasters or acts of God, this has been a bad year for the world and a good one for the rapture index.

The index, a feature on the Web site www.raptureready.com, is a measure of how quickly the world is careening toward the Second Coming of Christ. On a good day, it claims 15,000 hits.

"Rapture" is a word that some Christians use to describe the moment when, they believe, Jesus will call them home to heaven and the rest of the population will struggle on with only the Antichrist and the apocalypse to look forward to. The time between the rapture and the Second Coming is called the tribulation.

Interest in all of this is peaking these days, spurred on by the apparent frequency and intensity of earthly disasters, last …

PROFESSOR THINKS BOMBS,NOT PLANES,TOPPLED WTC

Y. professor thinks bombs, not planes, toppled WTC

By Elaine Jarvik
Deseret Morning News

The physics of 9/11 — including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell — prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor.

In fact, it's likely that there were "pre-positioned explosives" in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones.

In a paper posted online Tuesday and accepted for peer-reviewed publication next year, Jones adds his voice to those of previous skeptics, including the authors of the Web site www.wtc7.net, whose research Jones quotes. Jones' article can be found at www.physics.byu.edu/research/energy/htm7.html.

"It is quite plausible that explosives were pre-planted in all three (WTC) buildings," BYU physics professor Steven E. Jones says.

UNHOLY WAR

Unholy War - By Ron Cantrell - www.bridgesforpeace.com

A new kind of battle is raging around the world. It is unlike any war in the past. It is hard to define. It is being waged without clear borders. It is staffed with soldiers that are unscrupulous and operate in underground cells which are nearly impossible to identify

Almost every news broadcast details another incident in the battle and a depressing by-product is that the world economy is taking a beating due to consumer fear.

Because this current war involves a religion, i.e., Islam, modern warfare methods are handicapped by the overly cautious. They are convinced, and perhaps rightly so, that it would be catastrophic to be guilty of attacking a world religion.

Westerners search introspectively to see if they have acted in some way to justify conventional terror attacks (if there is such a thing), but, the pivotal question is, "Might some of these groups loose upon the world a biological attack that would be almost impossible t…

STANDING WITH ISRAEL IS STANDING WITH GOD

Standing with Israel Is Standing with God - Rev. Rebecca J. Brimmer International Executive Director - Bridges for Peace International

Israel is in the news every day. You can pick up any newspaper or newsmagazine or watch the television news, and there will usually be something about Israel. You will hear about many of the problems, issues, and conflicts Israel faces, both on an individual and a corporate level. You will hear about suicide bombers, terror attacks, and war. But, as strange as it may sound, these are only symptoms of a bigger problem. That problem is spiritual.

The world is at war against God. You can see evidence of the spiritual struggle from Genesis to Revelation. The evils of earthly war, violence, and hatred are all by-products of the war raging in the spiritual realm. The first time we read of this conflict is in Genesis when the serpent comes to Eve and tells her that God is a liar and not to be trusted: "Then the serpent said to the woman, 'You will not …

WHY DO YOU WORSHIP GOD

Why Do You Worship God?
Chip Ingram

Why is your God better than all the other gods in the world? I was asked that question on an international flight by a Chinese woman who had grown up under communism. For the first 20 or so years of her life, she had been taught there was no God, but for the last 10 years, she had been reading about various religions and beliefs, and she honestly wanted to know why I worshipped God.

I spent the next two hours telling her everything I could think of to help her understand the uniqueness and character of the God of the Bible, and to explain why the God of Christianity is, in fact, the one true God. At the time, I hoped and prayed that I gave her some pretty solid answers, but if I had it to do over again, I would simply focus on the sovereignty of God.

Why? Because it is the sovereignty of God that sets Him apart from all other gods. So what does the phrase "God is sovereign" really mean?

If you were to look up the word "sovereign" in t…

Christmas in America
becomes battleground
As holiday traditions draw national controversy, believers, pagans grapple over Jesus' inclusion

Every December, a call goes out from the nation's pulpits to "put Christ back into Christmas," but growing numbers of Americans – including fundamentalist Christians – are claiming Jesus Christ had nothing to do with the holiday, and news items from across the country this week indicate that the U.S. has become the new battleground for Christmas.

Cases in point:

* A first-grade teacher in Sacramento Co., Calif., says her principal has prohibited instructors from uttering the word "Christmas" in class or in written materials;

* A school superintendent in Yonkers, N.Y., banned, then unbanned, holiday decorations that contained religious themes more than the generic "season's greetings";

* New York City schools …

BEHOLD A PALE HORSE

Behold a Pale Horse Avian Flu - by Chuck Missler - www.khouse.org

We tend to presume linearity in our environment: we assume that tomorrow will be like yesterday; next month like last month, etc. It's understandable and it makes a workable hypothesis for most of the practical priorities we face in life. However, it is also clear that our reality is often disturbed by "non-linearities," which can come in many forms. Certainly Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the Gulf Coast and the recent earthquake in Pakistan are traumatic examples. But earthquakes and hurricanes are not the only "non-linearities" we face in our reality - pestilences have also been promised as a sign of the end times:

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of birthpangs.

Matthew 24:7-8

The fourth of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse also suggests the same:
