Update: Israeli Navy Ships Moving to Persian Gulf (?)

"Arab media: 2 Israeli Navy ships passed through Suez Canal"

The first (summary) sentence says it all:

"Two Israeli missile boats pass through Egypt's Suez Canal en route to Red Sea, according to Arab media reports; Cairo adopts strict security measures to ensure ships' safety. Egyptian sources estimate vessels headed to Persian Gulf."


"The sources did not provide the exact ultimate destination of the missile boats. However, Egyptian maritime sources quoted in the Arab media estimated that both ships were headed to the Persian Gulf and may reach it within four days. The veracity of these estimates is unclear."

This situation is worth watching. It may mean absolutely nothing, and it may be evidence of further build-up to war. Time will tell.


Also worth noting, in brief (under the prophetic categories of "earthquakes" and "pestilences"):

"Strong Quake Hits Off Southern Japan Coast"

"China threatens world health by unleashing waves of superbugs"

Just a couple of quotes on the last article, which underscores the threats of antibiotic-resistant bacteria threatening the entire population:

"China's reckless use of antibiotics in the health system and agricultural production is unleashing an explosion of drug resistant superbugs that endanger global health, according to leading scientists."

"Studies in China show a "frightening" increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus bacteria, also know as MRSA . There are warnings that new strains of antibiotic-resistant bugs will spread quickly through international air travel and internation food sourcing."

"There is a real risk that globally we will return to a pre-antibiotic era of medicine, where we face a situation where a number of medical treatment options would no longer be there. What happens in China matters for the rest of the world."


Another day, more signs which become evident. Almost every headline we see in the world today is completely consistent with biblical prophecy.

A decade ago, watching the signs was a very very different exercise. One could go several weeks without finding anything "interesting" in the news - at least in terms of prophecy watching. Today, we have pertinent news on a daily basis. Its actually amazing to reflect on how much things have changed over the past 10-20 years for a prophecy watcher. There are actually many days where I simply cannot post every news item of interest, just because there is so much information which is possibly/probably related to prophecy.

Birth pains. Just as described.

I am absOlutely amazed at how fast these events are taking place. Even though I know the rapture is near, it is amazing, almost eerie, as to how fast te chess pieces are moving. I am very grateful for your site, as it is a gold mine of information. I have referred many of my friends here, and I hope they get as much from it as I do. Thanks for all that you do!

Its really and truly my pleasure Neb; and I agree wholeheartedly, its SO exciting to watch these end times fall into place. It is amazing indeed. Surreal. Its sometimes hard to believe, but the "data" are overwhelmingly shouting that we're right on the edge of eternity.
Keep looking up!
