DTW BobsNewsDesk 300 Prophecy News   05 September 2011

Where is the U.S. in Bible Prophecy?

A new Pentagon report indicates China’s sustained military investments are destabilizing and exposes the Marxist giant’s global ambitions. The free world had better wake up to the security threat posed by this hegemonic menace.Last week the Pentagon issued its annual report to Congress, which warns, “China’s rise as a major international actor is likely to stand out as a defining feature of the strategic landscape of the early 21st century.”

China is expanding its nuclear forces with a new multiwarhead mobile missile and keeps its strategic stockpiles in deep underground bunkers, the Pentagon disclosed in its annual report to Congress on the Chinese military.China is thought to have up to 75 long-range nuclear missiles, including hard-to-find, road-mobile DF-31 and DF-31A intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), according to the report, which was released Wednesday. China also has 120 intermediate- and medium-range missiles.

Most of the worst financial panics in history have happened in the fall. Just recall what happened in 1929, 1987 and 2008. Well, September 2011 is about to begin and there are all kinds of signs that the financial world is about to hit the big red panic button. Wave after wave of bad economic news has come out of the United States recently, and cis embroiled in an absolutely unprecedented debt crisis.At this point there is a very real possibility that the euro may not even survive. So what is causing all of this?

Israel – God’s Timepiece

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Iran was determined to eradicate Israel, ISNA news agency reported Thursday. “Iran believes that whoever is for humanity should also be for eradicating the Zionist regime (Israel) as symbol of suppression and discrimination,” Ahmadinejad said in an interview with a Lebanese television network, carried by ISNA.

Monday night and Tuesday, Aug-29-30, three international heavyweights – Russia, the European Union and key Muslim nations – gave Syrian President Bashar Assad tough ultimatums for ending his ferocious crackdown on protest.Nevertheless, on Monday, his troops shot dead 17 people in Syrian cities – even as he received Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov who arrived in Damascus with a last warning from President Dmitry Medvedev: Recall you soldiers to their bases immediately and implement changes or Moscow will endorse UN Security Council sanctions stiff enough to stifle the Syrian economy.

A retired Army general and leading expert on terrorism says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may soon be compelled to take decisive action against the rogue regime in Iran.Israel was recently compelled to dispatch two more warships to the Red Sea border with Egypt in response to a warning about another planned terrorist attack from Egypt against southern Israel. Fox News also reports that Iran dispatched its 15th fleet to the Red Sea, allegedly to combat piracy.

The Israeli military is to train Jewish settlers in the West Bank and plans to equip them with tear gas and stun grenades to confront West Bank demonstrators when their leaders press for UN recognition next month.The enlistment of settlers, which has already opened with a training session for their local security officers, is part of the military’s comprehensive “Operation Summer Seeds” for dealing with possible violence as the UN considers whether or not to recognise a Palestinian state.

European Union governments sought a common approach on Friday to a possible Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations this month but deep policy differences looked set to undermine the efforts. Austria’s Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger said one solution could be for the EU to propose its own resolution to the UN on the sensitive issue but other diplomats said privately that several EU capitals opposed the idea.

The Gog/Magog War

Elements of al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups were known to be key players in the NATO-backed uprising in Libya from the beginning, but now it appears that prominent Jihadists and terrorists are practically leading the revolution with Western support. One terror leader in particular, Abdelhakim Belhaj, made headlines around the world over the weekend after it emerged that he was appointed the chief of Tripoli’s rebel Military Council. Prior to leading rebel forces against Gaddafi’s regime, Belhaj was the founder and leader of the notorious Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).

Dear Foreign MInister Davutoglu and the rest of Turkey:As an Israeli – as a proud and nationalistic Israeli – I take your demand that my country apologise to you quite seriously. I understand that you cannot forgive the deaths of nine irregular combatants on 31st May 2010. Obviously, those nine deaths loom far greater in your national consciousness than the many hundreds of Kurds whom your military has slaughtered over recent years.

Apostate Christianity

Recent evangelical discussion concerning Adam and Eve has served at least one good purpose – it has helped to clarify what is theologically at stake in the debate. The recent report by National Public Radio [NPR] alerted the larger secular culture to the debate, but the debate is hardly new.What is new, however, is the candid admission on the part of some that the denial of a historical Adam requires a new understanding of the Bible’s basic story – and thus of the Gospel as well.

Pentecostal televangelist and self-professed prophetess Juanita Bynum has sparked curiosity among some Internet users and the Christian community for several comments on the minister’s Facebook page where she appears to type “in tongues.” Pentecostal minister Juanita Bynum has raised brows over prayers posted on her Facebook page where the minister appears to pray “in tongues.”

In a series of posts published on Aug. 17, on one of Bynum’s many Facebook pages, the minister typed messages where it was believed by commenters and critics that the she was praying in tongues.

The Rise of Islam

Mosques in the United States that follow the Shi’a Islamic philosophy of Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini are lending more than moral support to the case of the radical Islam; they are sending financial support, according to reports from investigators who have researched the controversial activity. After all, it was the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial that was called the largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history that set all sorts of precedents, including the naming of such prominent Muslim advocates as the Council on American-bio Islamic Relations as unindicted co-conspirators.

Increase in Knowledge & New Technologies

Being microchipped is now being spun as a method of protecting the health of hospital patients. To help mask the practice of this bodily invasion with a trendy, high-tech appearance, microchipping sensors are being referred to as “electronic tattoos” that can attach to human skin and stretch and move without breaking. Supposedly the comparisons of this hair-thin electronic patch-like chip to an electronic tattoo are being made because of how it adheres to the skin like a temporary tattoo using only water.

Reflecting on the Paris exposition of 1900, Henry Adams admitted to being overwhelmed by the new technologies on display. He was awed in particular by the electricity-generating dynamo. One wonders what he would make of the technologies described by Sonia Arrison in her new book “100 Plus.””We are at the cusp of a revolution in medicine and biotechnology,” Ms. Arrison announces, “that will radically increase not just our life spans but also, and more importantly, our health spans.” This revolution will “change everything, from careers and relationships to family and faith.”

Now we know what the Navy plans to do with its experimental hybrid of laser cannon and machine gun: zap pirate ships.Two defense giants, Boeing and BAE Systems, announced late last month that they would team up on a $2.8 million Navy contract for a prototype version of BAE’s Mk-38 25-mm machine gun with a little upgrade: a death ray. As the companies excitedly explained, the new gun would protect surface ships from pretty much everything, from enemy boats to small drones.

Sept. 11 turned much of the West into a high surveillance society. And hi-tech devices could soon enable the government to track our lives more than we’d like.

Surveillance may not be at the level that author George Orwell wrote about in 1984, where “big brother” could see and control all. But experts say the tools are being forged to create such a world.

If certain crazy scientists have their way, we could eventually see some humans covered in skin that has been bioengineered with animal parts such as spider’s silk and goat milk.

Bulletproof vests are widely accepted as a method of ballistic protection, but genuine bulletproof skin has always been a concept meant only for science-fiction movies. It’s absolutely heinous and ridiculous to imagine such a notion becoming a reality, but thanks to a sickening development devised by UK scientists, it may be soon become reality: a bulletproof “vest” or human bulletproof skin created by combining genetically engineered goat milk and spider’s silk woven into skin cells.

Christian Worldview & Issues

The key to the new evangelization of our Faith in this postmodern age is the fundamental relationship each one of us has with our Lord Jesus.  Do we take the time we need during each day to encounter Him heart to Heart?  Do we stay still long enough to search for God, to listen for His voice, to trust Him in a spirit of obedience even when He might lead us into uncomfortable waters for the sake of our own souls and those of our brothers and sisters in the human race?

Relational evangelism may have the key to successful youth ministries in the 1990s, but today apologetics is gaining new traction.Kids struggle to explain their beliefs today more than they did two decades ago, said Christian Smith, director of the Center for the Study of Youth and Religion at the University of Notre Dame. One of the center’s 2005 reports indicates that 12 percent of 13- to 17-year-olds say they are “unsure” of their religious beliefs, and 41 percent of Protestant teens agree that morals are relative.

A shopping network that contributes some of its profits to leading Christian family organizations is battling an Internet-organized campaign by homosexual-rights activists.The Charitable Give Back Group, formerly known as the Christian Values Network, says activist websites that enable users to create their own “cause” boast they have prompted hundreds of corporations to cut ties with the shopping network because it contributes to “anti-gay” non-profit organizations.

See Youtube video. Christianity is thriving in China. Even though sharing the gospel is illegal in the communist country, that hasn’t stopped Christians from boldly proclaiming their faith.CBN News recently joined one Chinese couple who are traveling the vast countryside to share the good news about Jesus Christ with their countrymen.Duan Huilai said the images captured on his home video camera are proof that God is moving in China.

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11 attacks, millions of Americans flocked to churches and houses of worship. But, for most, the shift in spiritual behavior was short lived. According to tracking research by the Barna Group, within a few months the spiritual lives of the nation’s population were back to pre-attack levels. As the tenth anniversary of America’s largest terrorist event approaches, a new analysis of Barna Group tracking data examines the long-term spiritual profile at one of the epicenters of the attacks—New York City and the surrounding media market. Based on analysis of research conducted over the last 14 years, the study shows that the faith profile of residents of the New York market has changed significantly over the last decade and a half, but many of these shifts may not be attributable to 9-11.

Australian education officials are working to remove any references of Christ in their school textbooks, which has caused an outrage in the country’s Christian community.According to FOX News, the government is working to eliminate the usage of “BC,” an acronym for Before Christ and “AD” which stands for “Anno Domini.” Instead, the new terms for usage in education texts would be “BCE,” which would stand for Before Common Era, “BP,” which would represent Before Present and “CE” which means Common Era.

News reports and rumors have been circulating since Rick Perry’s Aug. 6 prayer gathering called “The Response,” that evangelical members of a radical Christian sect called the “New Apostolic Reformation” (NAR) are seeking to take “dominion” over the earth through politics, media and other sectors. Church leaders, however, say the New Apostolic Reformation is not about dominating society or forcing Christian morals on America, but rather actively living out the Christian faith.

Hundreds of United Methodists trying to make their 12 million-member, worldwide denomination more gay-friendly are meeting in Huron this week for a national conference. They hope to soon change their church’s official position that homosexuality is a sin — an issue that has caused a raging debate among the laity and clergy for decades. Unlike other mainstream Protestant denominations in the United States — including the United Church of Christ, Evangelical Lutheran, Episcopal and cUSA — the United Methodists prohibit clergy from engaging openly in same-sex relationships.


Other Events To Watch

PAYPAL billionaire Peter Thiel doesn’t have a hideous facial scar, a white cat or a diabolical plan to take over the world. But his desire to build floating countries in a bid create a new world order run along libertarian ideals does scream Bond villain. According to The Sun newspaper, Thiel, 43, has given $1.19 million to the Seasteading Institute, which believes the ocean is the “only option to create new societies on Earth”. The first floating nation could be built off San Francisco as soon as next year. The new countries would be a “kind of floating Petri dish for implementing policies that libertarians, stymied by indifference at the voting booths, have been unable to advance: no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage and few restrictions on weapons”

Whenever a major disaster or emergency strikes, millions of lives can be turned upside down in an instant.Fortunately Hurricane Irene was not as catastrophic as originally projected, but millions of people did lose power and at least 35 people lost their lives. Large numbers of homes were destroyed and the economic damage from Hurricane Irene is going to be in the billions of dollars.
