Progressing Signs: Daily News Tell The Story

Every day we see the generational signs progressing in a step-wise manner. The most amazing aspect of prophecy watching is how the generational signs never skip a beat and they never ever reverse course. Just as Jesus said, these signs would be like birth pains, and we all know how that works - the birth pains, or contractions only grow stronger and become more frequent as the process progresses. We see this process every single day:

"War and rumors of war"

"Our naval forces are so powerful that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York," The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said Tuesday during a speech to the students of the University of Yazd in Iran.

Fadavi said dominance over the Persian Gulf is "the only tool for the Americans to rule the world" and that's why "they confront any other power that threatens their status" in the waterway.

"First, sinking an aircraft carrier is not a complicated task," Hajizadeh said. "Second, an aircraft carrier is equipped with so many advanced, delicate, and sensitive devices … that it could be incapacitated by even the smallest explosion."

IRGC naval commanders said in July 2011 that they would expand their mission into the Atlantic Ocean, and that the country had equipped a number of its vessels with long-range ballistic missiles.

In September, Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said Iran planned to deploy naval vessels in the Atlantic Ocean. "The Navy has a strong presence in the Caspian Sea, Persian Gulf, Sea of Oman, Indian Ocean and international waters and soon it will be present in the Atlantic Ocean," Vahidi said.

Binyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak are facing another of the periodic opposition campaigns to unseat them – this time by pressure for an early election a year before its October, 2013 date. New faces have joined the opposition lineup. They are focused on challenging the current government’s credentials for leading an Israeli attack to preempt a nuclear Iran.

In their drive to discredit Netanyahu and Barak, President Peres, Olmert, Dagan, Diskin and Ashkenazi failed to take note of Gen. Gantz’s words or what they portended – namely: In the past week, the United States has brought forward its operational preparations for an attack on Iran.
Instead, in Jerusalem, Israel’s opposition parties gathered for the push to corner Netanyahu into announcing an early election.
They got their wish sooner than they expected.
The prime minister, after turning the situation over for 48 hours, assented. He figured that the key weapon adopted by his rivals to knock him over was not in fact in their hands but in his: It is up to him and him alone to decide whether to attack Iran. In fact, if an election was forced on his government, he could defeat their scheme by bringing the attack forward.
So the impression of Netanyahu and Barak fighting with their backs to the wall against a body of generals is totally misleading.

Their opponents are beginning to realize that their anti-government offensive has missed its mark and may well blow up in their faces. The pressure for an election may therefore dissipate in the coming days - or not. That too is up to Netanyahu. He may decide that a successful operation against Iran would assure him of an election victory and wipe out his rivals. For now, he's got his foes guessing.

The readiness by President Obama to support Iran’s continuing enrichment of uranium to concentrations of 5 percent is in direct opposition to the position of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who told CNN earlier this month, “They have to stop all enrichment," including even 3 percent grade uranium.

The hawkish camp points out that Iran has a history of not keeping its word while conducting a policy of dragging out talks and negotiations in order to buy time for proceeding with development towards nuclear capability.

Such a deal would face formidable obstacles. Iran has shown little willingness to meet international demands. And a shift in the U.S. position that Iran must halt all enrichment activities is likely to prompt strong objections from Israeli leaders; the probable Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney; and many members of Congress.

That position is contrary to the mood of many in Congress. Lawmakers in both houses have begun circulating resolutions, with support from dozens of members, that demand an end to all Iranian enrichment. One senior Senate aide involved in the issue said any deal allowing continued enrichment "would be dead on arrival" in Congress.
The Rise Of Totalitarianism:

In short, the business of marketing drones to law enforcement is booming. Now that Congress has ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to open up U.S. airspace to unmanned vehicles, the aerial surveillance technology first developed in the battle space of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is fueling a burgeoning market in North America. And even though they’re moving from war zones to American markets, the language of combat and conflict remains an important part of their sales pitch — a fact that ought to concern citizens worried about the privacy implications of domestic drones.

“As part of the push to increase uses of civilian drones,” the Wall Street Journal reported last week, nearly 50 companies are developing some 150 different systems, ranging from miniature models to those with wingspans comparable to airliners.” Law enforcement and public safety agencies are a prime target of this industry, which some predict will have $6 billion in U.S. sales by 2016.

Uniquely among U.S. manufacturers, VDI touts its ability to weaponize drones for local police departments. “If you think weaponized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are still too new to combat zones for law enforcement to consider them for domestic use, think again,” said the editors of Special Weapons for Military and Police in February:

The Kevlar fuel tank mounted beneath the ShadowHawk allows it to stay in the air long enough to provide complete surveillance of an area and engage suspects with buckshot, tear gas, grenades and less-lethal capabilities.

Ever since 2010, when the Transportation Security Administration started requiring that travelers in American airports submit to sexually intrusive gropings based on the apparent anti-terrorism principle that "If we can't feel your nipples, they must be a bomb", the agency's craven apologists have shouted down all constitutional or human rightsobjections with the mantra "If you don't like it, don't fly!"

This callous disregard for travelers' rights merely paraphrases the words of Homeland Security director Janet Napolitano, who shares, with the president, ultimate responsibility for all TSA travesties since 2009. In November 2010, with the groping policy only a few weeks old,Napolitano dismissed complaints by saying "people [who] want to travel by some other means" have that right. (In other words: if you don't like it, don't fly.)

But now TSA is invading travel by other means, too. No surprise, really: as soon as she established groping in airports, Napolitano expressed her desire to expand TSA jurisdiction over all forms of mass transit.

In the past year, TSA's snakelike VIPR (Visual Intermodal Prevention and Response) teams have been slithering into more and more bus and train stations – and even running checkpoints on highways – never in response to actual threats, but apparently more in an attempt to live up to the inspirational motto displayed at the TSA's air marshal training center since the agency's inception: "Dominate. Intimidate. Control."

Earlier this month, the VIPRs came out again in Virginia and infested the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel, also known as the stretch of Interstate 64 connecting the cities of Hampton and Norfolk. Spokesmen admitted again that the exercise was a "routine sweep", not a response to any specific threat. Official news outlets admitted the checkpoint caused a delay (further exacerbated by a couple of accidents), but didn't say for how long. Local commenters at the Travel Underground forums reported delays of 90 minutes.

Airports, bus terminals, train stations, highways – what's left? If you don't like it, walk. And remember to be respectfully submissive to any TSA agents or police you encounter in your travels, especially now that theUS supreme court has ruled mass strip-searches are acceptable for anyone arrested for even the most minor offence in America. If you're rude to any TSA agent or cops, you risk being arrested on some vague catch-all charge like "disorderly conduct". Even if the charges are later dropped, you'll still undergo the ritual humiliation of having to strip, squat, spread 'em and show your various orifices to be empty.

Can I call America a police state now, without being accused of hyperbole?

Paving the road: America's Financial Collapse:

(at the risk of 'stating the obvious')

When most people think of the economic decline that is happening in America, most of them think of states like California and cities like Detroit. In both cases, unemployment is rampant, government finances are a mess, and businesses and families are both leaving in droves. So what is causing this? What do California and Detroit have in common? Well, for one thing, both the state of California and the city of Detroit have been run by anti-business socialist control freaks for decades.

Once upon a time millions of young Americans that dreamed of a better life flocked to California and Detroit was one of the most vibrant manufacturing cities in the history of the world. But now both of them are in an advanced state of decline, and a lot of the blame can be placed at the feet of the politicians in both cases. Both California and Detroit have become very unfriendly places to businesses and families, so businesses and families have been leaving both California and Detroit in very large numbers. At the same time, the socialist welfare policies in both places have caused them to become magnets for those that enjoy being dependent on the government.

At one point, Detroit was one of the greatest cities in the world.

But today, 53.6 percent of all children in Detroit are living in poverty and 47 percent of all people living in the city of Detroit are functionally illiterate.

How does something like that happen?

Over the past 50 years, the population of Detroit has lost more than a million people as businesses and families have left in droves. The following is from a recent Economy In Crisis article....

Once the wealthiest city in America, known as the “arsenal of democracy,” Detroit was the fourth largest city in the U.S. in the 1960s with a population of two million. Now a microcosm of everything that is wrong with the American economy, Detroit has become nothing more than a devastated landscape of urban decay with a current population of 713,000.

Visiting Detroit is the closest Americans can come to viewing what appears to be a war torn city without leaving the U.S. This former powerhouse is a barren stretch of land, devastated by looters and and full of run-down, vacant houses. Rows upon rows of dilapidated structures line the streets; empty apartment buildings and factories consume the landscape. Almost a third of Detroit has been abandoned.

Just read the rest of this article. Its too depressing to post more. As they say "Read it and weep" most definitely applies.

On the other hand, Russia has it right and we can expect to see an economic boom to take place there.

From Russia With Love (of oil and gas)

Imagine a president who gets behind drilling, welcomes the cutting-edge technology of companies such as ExxonMobil, and offers generous 15-year tax breaks to ensure that new drilling projects move forward. That's the kind of energy policy America needs in order to achieve energy-independence. Unfortunately, it's not Barack Obama who's behind those positive energy policies; it's Vladimir Putin.

As Russian president-elect, Putin has made it clear that he intends to open his country's arctic and Black Sea regions to drilling. The potential is so great, and the necessaryinvestment so immense, that even Russia's giant state-run oil companies, Rosneft and Gazprom, lack the resources and technology to proceed. So, with Putin's blessing, Rosneft and Gazprom have entered into joint-production agreements with Exxon, Italian major Eni, and other Western companies. The stakes are huge -- not just for these companies, but for the Russian economy.

Instead of permitting delays, EPA harassment, Interior Department exclusions, and environmental lawsuits, drillers in the Russian arctic and Black Sea can expect considerable support from the Russian government.

The same thing and more could be happening in the U.S., but it is not. Because of Obama's hostility toward fossil fuels, America is missing the opportunity of energy-independence and all the blessings that come with it.

Meanwhile, back in the U.S. we see the continual efforts to become a Marxist country:

Are You Ready? This Week Will Be Huge In The World And Here Is Why

As much of the country thaws out and heads into spring and, in some places, early summer, the temptation may be to think major news is packing its bags and headed for its vacation home. It’s not. And this upcoming week will blast you back to reality.

Intrepid financial writer Joe Weisenthal over at Business Insider has put together a list of what’s happening this week and is calling it “one of the biggest weeks that anyone can remember.” That’s a bold statement, but he has the information to back it up. Here’s what he says:

Obama's Nakba

The Arab word "nakba" means catastrophe. Because the Palestinians live in an endless self-inflicted catastrophe, they have now been ordered to make "nakba" their word for Israel's Declaration of Independence.

But Jews living in their land is not a disaster for Arabs. On the contrary, it could be a bonanza if Muslims could ever tolerate Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Bahá'ís, atheists, or each other. Muslim tolerance is on display today in Syria, where Sunnis and Shi'ites are killing each other. No Arab regime in history has been peaceful for long, because Islam means holy war.

Obama has been working with Samantha Power and Code Pink to undermine Israel. In that process, at least 20,000 Arabs have died in what the media call the "Arab Spring." It has turned into an Arab Nightmare. Twenty thousand dead is a lowball estimate from

This is Obama's Nakba.

The phony Arab Spring started with the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, our only Arab ally to keep the peace in the Middle East for 30 years. Obama publicly told 80-year-old Mubarak to get out, and now the Muslim Brotherhood is taking over the biggest Arab country. But the Moos killed Anwar Sadat, Mubarak's predecessor, for daring to make the only peace treaty with Israel. The Moos are Muslim fanatics, just like the ones who attacked the United States on September 11, 2001. The day after 9/11, they were dancing in the streets and passing out candy to celebrate.

Obama has surrendered the Middle East to our enemies. That follows his religion of third-world socialism, which grew out of Lenin's war ideology.

Obama had a huge window of opportunity to knock down Iranian nuclear facilities in the last four years, when Iran had no bomb and no long-range missiles. The U.S. had the power to do that. We did it four times in the last twenty years.

But Obama refused.

That window of opportunity has now slammed shut. If we end up fighting Iran, they will be armed to the teeth, because we lost the chance to pre-empt them.

The liberal PR machine is now working overtime to cover up the truth. But don't be taken in, please. The libs are going to announce a phony peace with Iran, just like Bill Clinton announced a phony peace with North Korea. Bill Clinton won his second term with smoke and mirrors, but the Norks went ahead and made nukes and ICBMs anyway. Surprise! Clinton didn't care that they violated promises made to him. He figured they would anyway, and he could sucker the voters. And he did.

So expect an "Obama Made Peace in the Middle East!" headline any day.

Nuclear Experts: Fukushima Crisis May Become a 'global catastrophe'

Hal Lindsey's Latest Update

It's a good one. In this update he stresses the issue of faith and it is a very powerful message:

Sunday News And Commentary

Sunday is usually a day of interesting commentaries on current events and today is no exception. First to the news:

Millions of Israelis this past weekend joyously celebrated the 64th anniversary of their nation's miraculous rebirth by attending picnics and public festivals. Unfortunately for some, the festivities were marred by violence.

Tzipi Shukrun and her extended family tried to mark Independence Day with a picnic in the Valley of Ben Hinnom just outside the walls of Jerusalem's Old City. But a gang of Arab youths from the nearby neighborhood of Abu Tor were determined to ruin the gathering.

Tzipi Shukrun told Israel's Maariv newspaper that the young male assailants attacked her family with iron bars, whips and knives, yelling at them to leave the area. Two of Cohen's brothers and a third unidentified family member were wounded and required hospitalization.

One of the wounded brothers, Yonatan Shukrun, recounted the incident for Israel's Ynet news portal. "Eight Arabs, aged 15 to 22, arrived just as we were preparing to leave. At some point they approached us and tried to reach the little kids – aged two, eight and 10," said Yonatan. "When we tried to stop them, they took out a whip and a knife and began hitting us. I was struck with a club. We managed to protect the women and children, but it wasn't easy."

Police later arrested four suspects in connection to the attack.

At around the same time, an 11-year-old Jewish boy was injured when Arab stone-throwers attacked his family at the Lion's Gate on the other side of the Old City.

Late Thursday night, again in Jerusalem's Old City, two Arab youths assaulted an Orthodox Jewish man.

In related news, thousands of Arabs participated in a march in northern Israel on Thursday to protest Israel's rebirth as a "catastrophe" for their own community.

Arab members of Israel's Knesset sought to fuel that fire. Arab lawmakers Jamal Zahalka (Balad) and Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List) took part in anti-Israel demonstrations on Independence Day, apparently oblivious to the fact that their position in Israeli society belies their claims of "Zionist apartheid and oppression."

The paragraphs below represent the introduction to this lengthy article - an article which details the many specific examples of extreme persecution by country. It is a worthwhile read. Let us not forget that Jesus informed us of this situation as a generational sign:

"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all the nations because of me." (Matthew 24:9)

The war on Christianity and its adherents in the Muslim world rages on. In March alone, Saudi Arabia's highest Islamic legal authority decreed that churches in the region must be destroyed; jihadis [holy warriors] in Nigeria said they "are going to put into action new efforts to strike fear into the Christians of the power of Islam by kidnapping their women"; American teachers in the Middle East were murdered for being Christian or talking about Christianity; churches were banned or bombed, and nuns terrorized by knife-wielding Muslim mobs. Christians continue to be attacked, arrested, imprisoned, and killed for allegedly "blaspheming" Islam's prophet Muhammad; former Muslims continue to be attacked, arrested, imprisoned, and killed for converting to Christianity.

The extent of this persecution is virtually unknown in the West, due to the mainstream media's well-documented biases: the mainstream media knows that if they do not ignore or at best whitewash the nonstop persecution of Christians under Islam, their narrative of Islam as the "religion of peace" would be quickly undermined.

Last month alone, the New York Times ran an anti-Catholic ad, but refused to publish a nearly identical ad directed at Islam; the BBC admitted it mocks Jesus but will never mock Muhammad; and U.S. sitcoms have been exposed as bashing Christianity, but never Islam.

The conclusions:

Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions, "Muslim Persecution of Christians" was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of persecution that surface each month.

Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws that criminalize and punish with death to those who "offend" Islam; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya (financial tribute expected from non-Muslims); overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis, or second-class, "tolerated" citizens; and simple violence and murder. Sometimes it is a combination.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the West, to India in the East, and throughout the West wherever there are Muslims—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.

This article could be sub-titled "The Rise of the Totalitarian World Rule - Marching Towards the Tribulation". Lets not forget what the world will be facing during the Tribulation:

"The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for 42 months...He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation...He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy and sell unless he had the mark..." (Revelation 13)

It is not too far-fetched to describe the European Union as an attempt to establish a European empire by economic means via the currency of the euro, the ubiquitous regulations of the EU, and that entity's accompanying economic dictates. It is quite possible that unless Europe's individual nations fight for their sovereignty, a unified European entity -- a goal long-dreamed of by military conquerors -- could be achieved by a European economic empire.

European Union is essentially inclined toward a reductionist, socialist/Marxist interpretation of governing institutions, as economic factors alone are assumed to be the essence defining and driving nations and humanity itself.

In turn, one result of this consolidation has been an increase in the power of executive branch and its supra-constitutional enforcement agencies, both of which combine to suppress state sovereignty and pull together the power of the federal government. Individual states such as Arizona are under siege from their own government. If the erosion of state sovereignty continues, the result will assure the end of the U.S. as a nation-state based on federalism.

Unless the spiritual aspects of national cultures are revived and cherished and the sovereignty of individual nations and states protected, the end-result of the trends toward consolidation of power will be the demise of European nations and of the individual states of America. All, along with the peoples within them, will be reduced to being defined by bureaucracies reveling in trivial and materialist minutiae such as the measurement of bananas.

One thing it means is that the gulf between the European people and the elites who presume to govern them is growing wider by the month. On the one side you have the Italians, Greeks, French, Germans, Dutch, Spanish, Irish, etc., etc. — particular peoples living in particular places with individual identities. On the other side you have Europe. Or rather, “Europe.” That airy abstraction, a brainchild of elites who think the term “country” is an atavistic abomination and that the facts of history, tradition, custom, and national identity are disposable holdovers from a discredited and discreditable past.

“These elites,” Allison observes, “have created an idea – Europe. They see it as a project on a one-way street toward the eventual and, in their eyes, historically inevitable United States of Europe. They see the euro as a piece of the roadway to that end. And they see the ordinary people and the parochial interests of individual European countries as flotsam and jetsam they have to navigate to get to the promised land. Like all those on a mission and with an agenda, the educated, professional elites of Europe are not really interested in people who might slow them down.”

Today we have two video clips that are worth watching. The first of these two is linked here.

The written intro:

The data being collected by the NSA, FBI and DHS is being converted to technological weapons against the American public. This surveillance will undoubtedly be used as criminal evidence for trial.

According to James Bamford , “the Pentagon is attempting to expand its worldwide communications network, known as the Global Information Grid, to handle yottabytes (10 to the 24th bytes) of data. (A yottabyte is a septillion bytes–so large that no one has yet coined a term for the next higher magnitude.) . . .

William Binney, former NSA official and whistleblower, stated that, “Actually, I think the surveillance has increased. In fact, I would suggest that they’ve assembled on the order of 20 trillion transactions about U.S. citizens with other U.S. citizens.”

The attitude of government is to spy on its citizens without accountability and restraint.

The US government has been hard at work shredding the US Constitution .

The UK’s parliament has been passing “anti-social” restraints to force their people into submission.

France, Spain and other EU countries are under direct rule of technocratic bankers who were not elected, but placed into power.

Consistent with today's theme of global tyranny, we see this:’s No. 2 environmental book is an exposé that actually blasts the movement as a fraud.

Brian Sussman’s “Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda will Dismantle America” is the No. 1 book on in the Environmental Science, Weather, and Rivers categories and is threatening to take the No. 1 spot in the Environment category.

“Eco-Tyranny” documents the dramatic link between communism and environmentalism, notably the green agenda of some of history’s greatest villains, including Karl Marx, Frederick Engels and Vladimir Lenin.

This book just show[s] what [the] left green agenda really is: [a] power grab which has nothing to do with [the] environment.”

“Eco-Tyranny” offers an exclusive inside look at Barack Obama’s long-term plan to create humanity-free “wildways” that will dramatically expand federal land ownership, restrict energy production and force Americans to live in ever more populated mega cities.

“President Obama’s administration has seized control of entire industries, of healthcare, and of an increasing portion of Americans’ paychecks. Why shouldn’t they go over after land? And why stop there? Why not try to make government the center of all economic activity, including energy production?”

He concludes, “The environmental movement is not about clean water and clean air. It’s about seizing control over people’s lives.”

And below, we take a look at some of the strange and unusual happenings that are being reported from around the world - some of which seem highly prophetic and some which may or may not be related to prophecy:

It brings to mind these scriptures:

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from apprehension of what is coming on the world..." (Luke 21:25-26)

After a mysterious massive die-off of over 3,000 dolphins along the northern coast of Peru this year more than 1200 pelicans have been found dead in the past ten days in the same region. The deaths of the pelicans and dolphins, unexplained.

The birds began to appear dead on the northern coast of the country for more than 10 days. Neither the Peruvian Sea Institute Sernanp neither could explain the phenomenon.

According to Francisco Nique, president of the Association of Fishermen of Puerto Eten, for about 10 or 12 days have found more than 1,200 dead pelicans along 160 kilometers, between Punta Negra, in Piura , and San Jose creek in Lambayeque .

He reported that seven dolphins were found stranded, which add up to more than 3,000 fish dead in northern Peru so far this year

In the photo posted below one of the dead dolphins looks as if its skin was ‘scorched’.

So far, both the pelican and dolphin die-offs are unexplained.

This is the intro to the video:

Maybe it's time to read the last chapter in the Bible. This sure is strange. What is even more strange is the Fact that mainstream media is not putting it all together and reporting on these events. Thank God for Social Media. These strange events are happening all over the world. This is a must see Video. Please Share.
