In The News:

In the news...(in addition to the breaking news regarding quakes, as seen in the post below this one) reveals widespread articles pertaining to the ever present and growing "signs" of this generation:

There is a video [1] that could be loosely translated as "Terrorist Turkish border opening fire on the Syrian side" that pretty accurately sums up what's going on at the ultra-volatile geopolitical hotspot of the moment.

The voice over says, "This is the Syria-Turkey border, and this is an operation of the Free Syrian Army [FSA] ... The Gate [that would be the Syrian side of the border, housing the Gate checkpoint] is going to be seized."

What this means is that Turkey is sheltering the FSA right on the border, only a few meters - and not kilometers - away from Syrian territory. Way beyond hosting a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) command and control center in Iskenderunfor months now - a fact already reported by Asia Times Online - Turkey has now advanced right to the border, enabling a back-and-forth by heavily weaponized guerrillas/mercenaries to attack a sovereign state.

This can be seen as a very peculiar Ankara interpretation of "safe havens" and "humanitarian corridors" as outlined by what can be seen as the prime blueprint for regime change in Syria

So expect to see this movie generating countless sequels; the FSA attacking a Syrian border checkpoint, killing soldiers and then retreating under a hail of bullets, which will inevitably hit a nearby Syrian refugee camp.

The border escalation graphically illustrates the wider scenario: civil war.

Replace "Syria" with "Israel" and you have a future headline. Regardless, as we see in today's story:

EU countries are keen for a UN monitoring mission to go to Syria as fast as possible amid reports that fighting stopped at dawn on Thursday (12 April).

French foreign minister Alain Juppe told press at a meeting of G8 countries in Washington late on Wednesday that: "France wants the [UN] Security Council to adopt a resolution as quickly as possible to send a robust monitoring force on the ground ... to verify the reality of commitments undertaken by all parties [in the conflict]."

His remarks were echoed by UK foreign minister William Hague, who said monitors are needed "to make sure [Syria] can't slide back to renewed conflict."

The UN has already drafted plans for 250 unarmed monitors to go in, drawing on blue helmets currently deployed in UN missions in Jerusalem and on the Israel-Lebanon and Israel-Syria borders.

A "robust" force in Juppe's terms would require monitors to have their own armoured vehicles and bodyguards so that they could move around freely, an independent base with secure communications equipment and access to drone and satellite intelligence.

EU and US leaders have also declared that Assad is no longer the legitimate leader of Syria and should step down immediately.

But one analyst noted that despite its rhetoric, the West is happy for him to stay in power so long as bloodshed ends because it fears the Sunni Muslim opposition is a threat to Israeli and Lebanese security and to the safety of Christians in Syria.

Twelve Christians stood trial Easter Sunday in Iran, where they were called “apostates” in a courtroom and tried on multiple charges, according to sources close to Iran’s Christian community.

“It ultimately illustrates that being a Christian is illegal in Iran. No matter how clear or how open a pastor and a church may be, Christians are being brought to trial just for being Christian,” said Jason DeMars, director of the Present Truth Ministries advocacy group who is in daily contact with the Evangelical Christian community in Iran.

Among the 12 are community leader the Rev. Matthias Haghnejad and his wife, Anahita Khadeimi. The others are Mahmoud Khosh-Hal and his wife, Hava Saadetmend, Amir Goldoust, Mina Goldoust, Zhaina Bahremand, Fatemah Modir-Nouri, Mehrdad Habibzade, Milad Radef, Behzad Taalipasand and Amin Pishkar.

They stood trial in a court in Rasht, the same province where Nadarkhani was charged and has been held for more than two years.

Less than a week after the government announced the penny’s impending death, the Mint quietly unveiled its digital currency called MintChip.

Still in the research and development phase, MintChip will ultimately let people pay each other directly using smartphones, USB sticks, computers, tablets and clouds. The digital currency will be anonymous and good for small transactions — just like cash, the Mint says.

To make sure its technology meets the gold standard in a world where digital transactions are gaining steam, the Mint is holding a contest for software developers to create applications using the MintChip.

MintChip, a secure microchip, will be able to do this by letting people transfer small amounts of money (for an iTunes song or a newspaper) with no personal information attached to it, he said.

The Mint’s move into the digital market is a reflection the competitive payments industry, Interac spokeswoman Caroline Hubberstey said.

Interac, Mastercard and Visa already have contactless cards that use near field communication (NFC) chips for small payments at gas stations and grocery stores.

PayPal, Google and Visa have introduced digital wallets where consumers control all their cashless payments from one place. Companies Square and Payfirma let people accept credit card payments on their smartphones.

Jorge Fernandez Diaz, the Spanish interior minister announced in Congress on Wednesday that a reform of the penal code was planned to criminalise those involved in organising street protests that "seriously disturb the public peace".

Under the laws, a minimum jail term of two years could be imposed on those found guilty of instigating and carrying out violent acts of protest under a new package of measures unveiled on Wednesday.

But it has raised fears that the new measures could be used to stem the wave of protests that began last summer with the birth of what has been dubbed the "indignado movement", when tens ouf thousands of peaceful protesters camped out in squares across Spain.

The U.S. tax code is a complete and utter abomination and it needs to be thrown out entirely. Nobody in their right mind would ever read the whole thing - it is over 3 million words long. Each year, Americans spend billions of hours and hundreds of billions of dollars trying to comply with federal tax requirements. Sadly, it is the honest, hard working Americans in the middle class that always get hit the hardest.

When you account for all forms of taxation on the federal, state and local levels there are many Americans that pay out more than half of their incomes in taxes.

We are being taxed into oblivion, and yet most Americans do not even realize that it is happening.

It is kind of like being killed by thousands of tiny cuts.

So what do all of these taxes buy us?

They buy us a massively bloated government that wastes money on some of the craziest things imaginable.

Sorry Stephen but the stock market has no connection to predicting the return of Christ. Jesus told us the signs to watch for in the Olivet discourse and there is no mention of the American stock market.

He did tell us he would return as in the days of Noah and also as a thief in the night and to me that indicates it will be a time of business as usual and also taking most by surprise.

Dear 56, we have had this debate
many times, you know MY POSITION
on this already right ??

You will not CHANGE the way you think and neither WILL I, so go
in peace......ok ????

The STOCK market is one of the signs in the earth so to speak so
YES it was mentioned in a round
about way.

If you are so CORRECT, then why
since 3/4 OCT 2011 when stocks
have BEEN getting bulled, has
there been no rapture ??

please tell me.

THE sign Jesus gave of his coming!

Matt 24;4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall DECEIVE many.

Priority! It's deception, as it is the sign of Christ’s coming with the rise of those with false anointing, with false teaching, false signs and wonders, false prophecies, wolves in sheep’s clothing.

These come without warning and are insidious. This is the context of Jesus words ‘to watch’, lest He come to you as a thief. Deception must be watched out for with all diligence as it is forever morphing with Satanic trickery.

If we don’t watch, we WILL be deceived. The deceivers come from among the brethren. It is important to Jesus we watch for deception, so that must be our priority for if we say we love Jesus, then we will obey Him to watch for deception.

It must be marked and avoided and ‘put out’ from the midst or defy Christ’s direct command.

A priori! Signs on the earth are secondary and to be expected until the end. Interesting to observe, but by being fixed on prophetic news there is no watch for the deception coming up from behind which will result in personal and collective deception.

This stock market sign fits perfectly with the sign Jesus gave in Matt24:4,5. Deception.

3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. 4 For certain men whose condemnation was written about[b] long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
Walking in the Light
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[b] sin.
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives. 1John 1.

Waterer said...

1 John 2
1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for[a] the sins of the whole world.
3 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. 4 The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love[b] is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. 10 Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him[c] to make him stumble. 11 But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.
Warning Against Antichrists
18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.[d] 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is what he promised us—even eternal life.
26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. 27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.

If we are to watch for deceivers it should be in these ways.
Godless men who give license for sin and DENY Jesus as Lord.
But to keep us from being vigilantes He says . We are to WALK in the Light. Love our brothers,
Live in our anointing from Him and our teachings about Him.
To be a confessing people, a forgiving people. Obedient people.
These things alert us to danger when it comes.
Jesus also said if a brother offends us we should go to him. Error is correctable. Denying Jesus as Lord and that He came in the flesh are the flashpoints for alert. The congregations of teachers have the responsibility to correct. Just because we live in a time of instant soundbites,either spoken or written, doesn’t mean we get to throw mud or accusations on our leaders.

Waterer said...

The Holy Spirit will not fail at leading and correcting His people. Watching on our part should be in terms of whether the GOSPEL is being preached and is the real Gospel, full of life and hope and truth and forgiveness. Filled with Jesus Christ Himself.The same Jesus who went into heaven and will come again in the way HE went.( Acts)
We are not assigned the task to judge this for everyone else. We are each to follow Jesus and trust in the Holy Spirit who anointed us as servants and children of God.
Jesus also warned against pulling tares out at the same time the wheat was growing. Terrible mistakes can be made.
False signs will be given and only our clinging to Jesus and His Light will keep us on the path.
Walking in the Light and living as He did. Not letting the worries of this life choke the life out of us.Trusting in Him.
Vigilantes are dangerous. Let’s not start down this road. Let the local churches deal with false teaching.

2 Timothy 3:5
5.Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Enough…my goodness...Scott has made it VERY CLEAR to you, what his Blog is about. He has been polite, he has been firm, and your obsessive behavior has now forced him to delete your posts. You are beyond disrespectful!
I wont take the bait of YOUR untruths, and twisting and manipulating of His Word so that you can convince yourself that your on a "Holy mission", and lift YOURSELF up with no humility before Him. But, thats what happens with folks that have delusions of grandeur.
As Scott said, and others, there is a whole big wide Internet out there, yet you choose this little ole Blog to spew your fear and untruths, in a pathetic attempt to saturate Scotts Blog. You stated you weren’t interested in the larger forums/blogs, could that be because you were BANNED from them? Why aren’t you Witnessing to the unsaved?
Its interesting how folks like you, attempt to project onto others, what they are guilty of themselves.
You anon, are the devious wolf, with your multiple postings, names, deception etc. Sliding in from the dark shadows, with the flattery to Scott, then a little bit about the topic, then boom, attempted saturation of your “stuff”. When confronted, you turn around and try to make the person confronting you into the bad guy.
Many here are not privy to the absolute venomous person that you are, and you count on those of us who do know, to be decent and not publish the truth of who you are, because if we did then we are no different than you, are we. You lay traps, using multiple names, and cowardly hide behind "anon", and then pretend to be innocent. Of course there are those that do innocently post as "anon", but then you use and take advantage of that also to sew confusion. And whos the author of confusion? Right out of the darkness you are, in the most insidious way. No matter how many fake characters you create to post with, over and over again for some time now, your own words betray you. We know who you are. The Holy Spirit is so good! You are a minion for the enemy, and just as the enemy wants in these Last Days, you are a thief of time, intend distraction and diversion from Gods Word, by attempting to sew fear with false statements.
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, His Holy Spirit dwells within us. When Jesus left this earth, He promised He would send His Holy Spirit to guide us, to comfort us, and to help us, until His Return. It is a fact we are in the Last Days, and deception is running amuck, as satan knows his time is short. Those Brothers and Sisters that choose to follow false teachers, follow false doctrines, are ignoring the prompting of the Holy Spirit by choice. It is by choice! They have dimmed the promptings of the Holy Spirit, or in some cases, truly tragically, have never accepted Jesus as their Savior to begin with. Jesus Himself said that there will be those EVEN IN A DEAD CHURCH who will walk with Him! Why, because He knows them!
Revelation 3:4
4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

We will ALL be before Him, one on one, and be accountable to Him individually. Denominations are a joke to Him, there are NO Denominations in Heaven. It is ALL about a personal, one on one relationship with HIM! NO ONE ELSE as His Word says.
You have convinced your self that you are on some Righteous Mission, and are willing to deceive Brothers and Sisters, sew strife and fear to accomplish that “mission”. Then sadly justifying it to yourself, that you are doing for God. So committing and projecting lying, deception, fear, untruths against Brothers and Sisters is ok to Him? No, its not.
Have respect Scotts requests and stop steeling his and others time with you agenda filled with untruths. Time is very, very short, but there is still time for you to seek HIM and turn from the error of your ways.

AMEN to both Mrs C and Waterer - thanks for the input - plus the timely and appropriate scriptures - God Bless

HEY ANON >>>>>>

Before being CRITICAL about my postings regarding the stock market,

Are you scared to REVEAL who you are ??

I ALWAYS say who i am...


You owe this blog that much....

and, stocks are NOT a deception.
If you would be NICE enough to check out RN Elliott and his
interview with the media in 1941
you would FIND OUT that HE was
CORRECT to predict 7 DECADES of
rising stock prices.

and no rapture all that time.

Stocks were down again ??

yes they were.

current wave counts are STARTING
to look in the BEARS favor again.
I was CONCERNED that the rally
of the last two days would turn into something big on the upside,
but BULLS were NOT able to capitalize on that.....!!!!

much to their demise....

some financial concerns such as
GS and BAC got hammered down

PRETTY BAD by the close.

It would appear (although confirmation is needed) that
TOP TICK indeed was 02 APR 2012.

at 13,297 on the dow to be precise.

IF SO, the we are in the EARLY
STAGES of a huge 3 circle down.

and that, if it is set to happen,
could mean some VERY SERIOUS
consequences for this world.
