Indonesia Against Israel

What the heck do Indonesians have against Israel??....oh's a Muslim country and they also have swallowed the lies that Israel has no right what so ever to the Temple Mount.

Thousands of people took to the streets of the Indonesian capital of Jakarta on Saturday, and called to "defend the al-Aqsa Mosque" against Israel.

According to the Jakarta Post, despite heavy rain, supporters of the PSK party marched from the National Monument compound to Hotel Indonesia traffic circle, holding banners which read, “Save al-Aqsa Mosque from Zionist Israel” and “One man one dollar to save Palestine”. They also held a large carton model of the Temple Mount mosque.

The hatred towards Israel WILL spill over further into the hatred of Jews. Simply one more sign that we need to continue watching.

Divide Jerusalem

Here is the headline in today's news;
UN Secretary-General Says Jerusalem Should be Dual Capital

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he hopes to see a peace agreement in the Middle East within 24 months. Speaking at a press conference on Saturday, Mr. Ban said that agreement should include an end the occupation of Palestinian territories and include Jerusalem as the capital of both the Israeli and Palestinian states.

See it here;

By now, I think we all know what the Bible has to say about those who would divide Jerusalem.

Let's watch and pray.

Debt Wall

Some will say to me, "Yes, yes...we already know about your gloom and doom regarding the U.S. financial system....can we talk about something else?"

Hopefully, we have been talking about lots of other topics including Israel, Iran, Psalm 83, fallen angels, Russia, moral decline, etc.... so haven't been too unbalanced about covering the financial decline.

But....the financial thing is pretty darn interesting to me (maybe because I'm a financial consultant?) because it is starting to be pretty obvious that some day (maybe sooner than we know?) the whole current fiat money system may vanish like smoke. And for those of us in the U.S.....what a day that would be!!

So, with that as a backdrop, here is some other amazing/alarming news that is being pointed out. It's doubly interesting because it has the year 2012 sticking out all over.

According to The New York Times:
“The United States government alone will need to borrow nearly $2 trillion in 2012, to bridge the projected budget deficit for that year and to refinance existing debt.

“Indeed, worries about the growth of national, or sovereign, debt prompted Moody’s Investors Service to warn on Monday that the United States and other Western nations were moving “substantially” closer to losing their top-notch Aaa credit ratings.

“Sovereign debt aside, the approaching scramble for corporate financing could strain the broader economy as jobs are cut, consumer spending is scaled back and credit is tightened for both consumers and businesses.

“The apocalyptic talk is not limited to perpetual bears and the rest of the doom-and-gloom crowd.

“Even Moody’s, which is known for its sober public statements, is sounding the alarm. ‘An avalanche is brewing in 2012 and beyond if companies don’t get out in front of this,’ said Kevin Cassidy, a senior credit officer at Moody’s.”

Did you catch that? They are talking about the U.S. losing it's Aaa credit rating? We have been pointing to that ominous reality for quite some time because when it happens it will be a HUGE deal. Think about it....if the U.S. is out on a ledge right now with $10 Trillion owed but most of it at 3% interest or insolvent may we become if that whole $10 Trillion needs to be refinanced at 6% interest because we lost our credit rating? It really is simple math!

You can see article here;

A day of reckoning IS coming....anyone who believes that we can kick the can down the road for ever and ever are simply living their lives in fantasy land.

Reach for faith in Christ...because faith in this world system may soon pass away.

Glenn Beck Hates Jesus?

I caught this article from columnist Amy Sullivan and linked to Time Magazine. The full title of the article is; WHY DOES GLENN BECK HATE JESUS?

When Glenn Beck told listeners of his radio show on March 2 that they should "run as fast as you can" from any church that preached "social or economic justice" because those were code words for Communism and Nazism, he probably thought he was tweaking a few crunchy religious liberals who didn't listen to the show anyway. Instead he managed to outrage Christians in most mainline Protestant denominations, African-American congregations, Hispanic churches, and Catholics--who first heard the term "social justice" in papal encyclicals and have a little something in their tradition called "Catholic social teaching." (Not to mention the teaching of a certain fellow from Nazareth who was always blathering on about justice...)

See it here;

So here we have a woman who is clearly not talking about things that she intimately understands....but throwing out a cute comment about Jesus always talking about justice. She has no clue that Jesus is going to fulfill his roll as judge and executioner when he returns. To her, Jesus will always be a long haired liberal who would certainly vote democrat, recycle and drive an electric car.

The article goes on to talk about Glenn Beck's Mormon background. Honestly, I'm not convinced he is a Mormon as I have heard him sounding an awful lot like a Bible-believing, evangelical, Jesus is coming, prepare for the Rapture....follower of Christ. So I'm not sure what box we can put him in.

Of course what he has touched on is the very question of what the Church was put on earth to do....and now followers of Christ seem to not even agree on that.

Let's split this discussion into two main camps;
Camp one says; Feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and hopefully they will see Jesus in us and become better people. Our role is to make the earth a better place until it's nice enough for Jesus to come back and set up his kingdom. (which may or may not be on one can really know) They would like all churches to quit focusing on sin, heaven, repentance and hell....and focus more on converting their church body into a social-action community service. (Side note: most of the "emergent church" movement would fit into this camp)

Camp two says; Feed and clothe your neighbors who God puts in front of you so that you can witness to them about the salvation message of Jesus the Savior. Make disciples everywhere you go. Take care of those brothers and sisters IN THE CHURCH first...and this is a Biblical blessing of being part of the church. The world will continue to fall apart, because the Word of God says it will, and wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes will continue up to the end. People will become more and more evil and perverse...until Jesus comes and snatches his hidden church of Holy Spirit filled people off the face of the earth. Soon after this, the wrath of God will fall on sinful earth and those left behind.

Big difference....and one that will soon be setting up for a major split amongst "Christians". You simply can't co-exist in the same camp with the workers pulling in two opposite directions.

And you KNOW who the world is going to hate...Camp two. It sounds like Glenn Beck may be in camp two....and we are pretty sure most readers of this blog (including us) are also in camp two.

"The world will hate you because of me." says Jesus.

Expect it.

Please Pass the Ponzi

If Federal Reserve chairman, Ben Bernanke really said these's simply amazing.

It appears that Bernanke is calling for having "zero" money in reserve at the banks...instead of the fractional banking system that we have always had.

Laymans terms please??....OK....if you put $100 in a saving account at Wells Fargo, they don't hold your money in a vault. They make loans of your $100 to other folks to buy a car, charge them 10% interest and pay you 1% for letting your money sit at the bank. The bank makes 9% on your money...but of course they have the risk that the guy with the car runs away to Vegas and never pays them back.

But don't they have to keep some money in the vault to cover people who are making withdrawals? Yes they are supposed to. That's why it's called a "Fractional reserve" system. They are supposed to keep a certain amount (as set by the Federal Reserve) in the vault in case many depositors come in all at once for their money.....the bank will have plenty to pay out.

Now that could all be a thing of the past. The Chairman might now be saying we don't need to keep ANY money in the vault. In essence we can "float" the entire system and make it all up out of thin air. Isn't it bad enough already that 80% is all made from thin air.....won't 100% be a disaster waiting to bankrupt us all?

If there were no minimum reserve requirements, what kind of chaos would that lead to in our financial system? Not that we are operating with sound money now, but is the solution to have no restrictions at all? Of course not.

What in the world is Bernanke thinking?

But of course he is Time Magazine's "Person Of The Year", so shouldn't we all just shut up and trust his expertise?

Congressman Ron Paul has a quote in this article which rings very true....but of course most of the world believes Ron Paul is a quack to be made fun of on The Daly Show.

"The Federal Reserve in collaboration with the giant banks has created the greatest financial crisis the world has ever seen. The foolish notion that unlimited amounts of money and credit created out of thin air can provide sustainable economic growth has delivered this crisis to us. Instead of economic growth and stable prices, (The Fed) has given us a system of government and finance that now threatens the world financial and political institutions. Pursuing the same policy of excessive spending, debt expansion and monetary inflation can only compound the problems that prevent the required corrections. Doubling the money supply didn’t work, quadrupling it won’t work either. Buying up the bad debt of privileged institutions and dumping worthless assets on the American people is morally wrong and economically futile."

See it all here;

If we read our Bibles we will see that God has a way of tearing down false idols....and laying low the people who worship those false gods.

Could God be setting the stage to reveal just how silly we have been to have "trust and faith" in a money system which has been created out of thin air? It would be ironic that many in this country don't believe in God because they can't see him....but they have 100% trust and faith in a financial system that is made of air. It's kind of funny when you think of it that way.

BIG Rumor of War

This rumor involves the U.S. and Iran...and here is the headline;
Report: US shipping arms ahead of strike on Iran

Hundreds of powerful US “bunker-buster” bombs are being shipped from California to the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean ahead of a possible attack on Iran, The Herald reported Wednesday.

The Scottish newspaper said the American government signed a contract in January to transport 10 ammunition containers to the island. According to a cargo manifest from the US navy, this included 387 “Blu” bombs used for blasting hardened or underground structures, The Herald reported.

Dan Plesch, director of the Center for International Studies and Diplomacy at the University of London and co-author of a recent study on US preparations for an attack on Iran was quoted by the Scottish newspaper as saying, “They are gearing up totally for the destruction of Iran. US bombers are ready today to destroy 10,000 targets in Iran in a few hours."

Read it here;,7340,L-3863920,00.html

Can you imagine what the world will do if the U.S. goes into Iran (at Obama's orders) and just starts pummeling 10,000 targets using some of the biggest bombs in the world?

What would the Obama supporters do? After all, he was supposed to pull us out of Iraq and he was supposed to make friends with Iran, Russia, Pakistan, Turkey and India. And he has already sent the White House Harmonics Choir to these countries to teach them the the song, "Kum-ba-yah."

Instead, he stayed on the President Bush Iraq withdrawal schedule, he did his own "surge" in Afghanistan by committing 20,000 more soldiers, and Iran, Russia, Pakistan, Turkey and India like us even less today than they did when Bush was president.

Now just imagine if Obama orders a hit on Iran!!!

Seriously...pray for Obama. Seriously...pray for this country. I'm not sure the U.S. citizens of today are capable of much hardship.

Not Hurting Anyone

Many of you may have caught the story of the world's fattest mother? She has now set a goal for herself to become the world's fattest woman.

Why is this interesting...and why should we care??

First off it's interesting because the Federal Government may be about to vote into law a new National Healthcare System. This could be both financially catastrophic for us and it could lead us further towards the Federal government taking more control of our lives.

The woman mentioned in the article lives in New Jersey and even though she is eating herself to death....Obama's healthplan would make it mandatory that she gets insurance. Does that seem even remotely fair and just to ANYONE??

Ms Simpson already holds the Guinness World Record as the world's fattest mother, when she gave birth in 2007 weighing 38stone.

She needed a team of 30 medics to deliver her daughter Jacqueline during a high-risk Caesarean birth.
Yet although she can only move 20ft before needing to sit down, she wants to be even bigger.
'I'd love to be 1,000lb,' she said.

'It might be hard though. Running after my daughter keeps my weight down.

How much do you think it cost the "system" to have 30 medics delivering one baby?

The Bible speaks of gluttony. It seems to be a malady that has the same power as other addictions. But the world is on a quest to say that anything you "feel" like doing...must be OK...since your creator (the argument goes) created you with those feelings and desires.

This twisted idea is the rationale that is being used for gays, perverts, adulterers, porn enthusiasts, beastiality, recreational drug users...and now food-aholics.

In reality...our fallen nature leads us to do things that are grossly out of balance because Satan knows that people who are grossly out of balance find it very hard to fight on the front lines of God's army. He wants us to take the bait that leads to misery...and death.

Now check out some more perversion in this seems that perverse men actually pay to watch her eat...and that's how she supports her $750 per week grocery bill.

When she admitted her real size, Donna was flooded with emails from men.

'They sent me gifts through the post, like protein shakes to help me put on weight faster,' she said.

And she unrepentant of her weight-gain goal, despite risking her own life in the process.

'I love eating and people love watching me eat,' she said.

'It makes people happy, and I'm not harming anyone.

See it here;

Wow....did you catch the fact that she is unrepentant and that she believes she was made to cater to obese-perverts? She believe she isn't harming anyone?

We should pray for this woman because she doesn't appear to be bearing Holy Spirit fruit....also, the answers she is giving about being happy and not harming anyone...are not good answers for our creator on Judgment Day.

Terrible Times

Paul tells us about the last days;

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them." 2 Timothy 3:1-5

No doubt, we have all see this passage. But have we really looked at it closely to see if all these things have become more prevalent in the recent past? Some scoffers will say, "People have always been like that! There's nothing new here!"

Yes that's true...that people who don't know God have always been like that. But how about looking at that list and applying it us and the people all around us who are supposedly part of a "Christian" nation and may even attend our local churches most Sundays?

-We in America sure do love our money. Most of us spend more time chasing money than we do understanding our relationship with our creator.
-Most of us are lovers of ourselves. In fact a recent Barna poll showed that the number one goal of young people today is to "be famous". It's all about ME!!
-Have you noticed that kids don't say, "Yes sir," or "Yes mam" any more? Ask a public teacher if the kids are respectful to elders.
-Have you seen the increase in popularity of "Ultimate Fighting"? Men without boxing gloves go in a cage and beat each other the wild cheers of the audience and all of us watching on TV. We have become brutal...that's for sure.
-Today the number one goal of Americans is to be entertained. We hate boredom, silence or stillness. We need to be in constant motion with constant noise from TV's, I Pods, movies, DVD's in our cars, computer screens yelling the headlines, etc.... We have become real lovers of pleasure.
-Has there been a large increase in the availability of pornography in the last decade? Ask any kid with a cell phone and a computer if he has seen things that would make a sailor blush and that will literally ruin a generation of young men.
-Are the mainline churches turning more into social clubs than they are spiritual warfare centers? Do they have a form of godliness....but the power of the Holy Spirit has been quashed?

If you look at this list that Paul makes and then look at all the other signs that Christ told us to watch becomes a logical step to look around us and understand that the trumpet could blow any moment.

Settlements Aren't the Problem

The Wall Street Journal has more articles on Israel today...including the front page.

In the Opinion section, columnist Bret Stephens wrote an article titled, THE SETTLEMENTS AREN'T THE PROBLEM.

So it would be a splendid thing for Israel to tear down its settlements, put the settlers behind its pre-1967 borders and finally reach the peace deal with the Palestinians that has been so elusive for so long.

Except for one problem: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict isn't territorial. It's existential. Israelis are now broadly prepared to live with a Palestinian state along their borders. Palestinians are not yet willing to live with a Jewish state along theirs.

Read it here;

And that has been the problem all along.... Arabs have not been willing to live along side the Jews.

But yet we are forcing the Israelis to make peace with people who don't want it. What chances do we have of that working?

Supernaturally Illogical

Many times in conversation we have said, "When you see something that lacks all sense of logic, there may be a supernatural force behind it."
Now get a magnifying glass out and see if you can see a teeny-tiny red dot in the middle of this map. If you can....that is the country of Israel.
Now look at all the countries in green surrounding it. Those countries are controlled my Muslim majorities and/or governments.
These countries shaded in green share a desire to have Israel gone. They don't even want that teeny-tiny land to exist ANYWHERE.
And here is the illogical part....Israel has a few hundred thousand Arab-Muslims who call themselves "Palestinians". And for the past 60 years they have been living in poverty, many in refugee camps. Many of the Arabs who lost their claim to the land 40-60 years ago in Arab led wars against Israel...are now dead. It is their kids and grand kids who continue to demand land from Israel. They have been repeating the lies for so long now...that the world is starting to believe that Israel is the country that should offer them land for peace.
Now look at the map again. With millions of square miles of land totally surrounding Israel that should be more than welcoming to a few hundred thousand Arabs that claim they want peace....shouldn't the Arab world have been able to solve this "refugee" problem long ago? After all, they are the ones who caused the Arab refugee problem...not Israel.
And now we have team Obama twisting Israel's arm to give up land.
Does this strike anyone else as being totally illogical?
Do we all then understand where the supernatural desire to terminate the tiny red dot comes from?

Timing Couldn't Be Worse

We know Social Security has no money in the bank. It SHOULD....but the Federal government took it long ago and replaced it with I.O.U.'s

So just has paper promises.

This year, with receipts coming in that are crashing....coupled with benefit requests that are increasing....the S.S. system is looking to cash in those I.O.U.'s

And there lies the problem. The Federal Government doesn't have any money to pay the I.O.U.'s

The timing couldn't be worse.

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. – The retirement nest egg of an entire generation is stashed away in this small town along the Ohio River: $2.5 trillion in IOUs from the federal government, payable to the Social Security Administration.

It's time to start cashing them in.

For more than two decades, Social Security collected more money in payroll taxes than it paid out in benefits — billions more each year.

Not anymore. This year, for the first time since the 1980s, when Congress last overhauled Social Security, the retirement program is projected to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes — nearly $29 billion more.

Now...check out the prophetic tone here;

"This is not just a wake-up call, this is it. We're here," said Mary Johnson, a policy analyst with The Senior Citizens League, an advocacy group. "We are not going to be able to put it off any more."

"Those bonds are protected by the full faith and credit of the United States of America," Kennelly said. "They're as solid as what we owe China and Japan."

Now the government will have to borrow even more money, much of it abroad, to start paying back the IOUs, and the timing couldn't be worse.

See it all here;

Jesus said that we should only have faith in God. When did we start ignoring His words and start believing that faith in the U.S. government financial system trumped faith in God??


So here is the headline in today's Wall Street Journal Opinion section;
Obama's Turn Against Israel

The editorial goes on to say;

In recent weeks, the Obama Administration has endorsed "healthy relations" between Iran and Syria, mildly rebuked Syrian President Bashar Assad for accusing the U.S. of "colonialism," and publicly apologized to Moammar Gadhafi for treating him with less than appropriate deference after the Libyan called for "a jihad" against Switzerland.

When it comes to Israel, however, the Administration has no trouble rising to a high pitch of public indignation. On a visit to Israel last week, Vice President Joe Biden condemned an announcement by a mid-level Israeli official that the government had approved a planning stage—the fourth out of seven required—for the construction of 1,600 housing units in north Jerusalem. Assuming final approval, no ground will be broken on the project for at least three years.
But neither that nor repeated apologies from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prevented Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—at what White House sources ostentatiously said was the personal direction of President Obama—from calling the announcement "an insult to the United States." White House political chief David Axelrod got in his licks on NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, lambasting Israel for what he described as "an affront."

See it here;

I recall God's words of, "curse" and "torn to pieces".

Let's continue to hold fast and pray for the leaders of this country and also the peace of Jerusalem.

Two More Quakes Plus Epic Storm

The top news this morning on all the TODAY shows was talking about the epic storm that has been lashing the northeastern U.S.

Trees are down everywhere, half a million people have lost their electricity, floods are taking out towns and seven people have died when trees sliced through their homes. One guy said that he had never seen "anything like it".

Boy, it sure seems that the area surrounding Washington D.C. has been hit by the worst winter in living memory. Could there be some sort of coincidence of Godly proportions surrounding all these events? Could God be trying to wake us all up to the power of His Majesty?

Also two more quakes exceeding 6.0 happened over the weekend...but if they don't kill people....they don't make the news. One was in Japan and one was in Indonesia.

You can see Japan 6.6 quake news here;,3566,589189,00.html

You can see Indonesia 6.4 quake news here;

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).

Historic Crisis

Of course we have been watching the relationship between Israel and the USA. With Biden over there last week and Hilary Clinton "rebuking" Netanyahu....all of our futures MAY hang in the balance.

Today, from Reuters News, comes another alarming report concerning the special relationship that the U.S. has with Israel....and here is the headline;

Israeli envoy sees "historic crisis" with U.S.: report

(Reuters) - Israel and the United States are in a "crisis of historic proportions" over a settlement dispute that has brought relations to a 35-year low, Israel's ambassador to Washington was quoted on Monday as saying.

The comments attributed to envoy Michael Oren clashed with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's attempts to play down tensions with U.S. President Barack Obama's administration over a West Bank settlement project threatening to derail the renewal of Israeli-Palestinian talks.

"Israel's ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions," the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper quoted Oren as telling other Israeli diplomats in a telephone briefing over the weekend.

See it here;

By now, we should all know why this may be a crucial time for the future of the USA...."I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you," says God.

Strange Things Being Born

I caught these images while browsing a Russian newspaper on the previous post. I have NO IDEA what the heck this strange pig and lamb actually are....but the Bible tells us that Satan has played with DNA in the past....and Jesus seems to hint that he will be doing it during the Last Days as well.
What do you think? Are the demons at it again? Or are these just a few strange birth defects amongst the millions of piglets and lambs born every year?
Here is supposedly what the governor of the district in Turkey that birthed the lamb-man had to say;
"This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing. It is really embarrassing," he reportedly said. "The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat. This is evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control. We often hear cases of human beings who commit bestiality but this is the first time for such an act to produce a product with human features," he added.
Interesting that he attributes it to evil powers.

What's Wrong With Israel?

Ezekiel tells us clearly that Russia will lead a coalition in the very last days against Israel. The passage tells us that they will be seeking "booty"...which would mean that they will believe that Israel has some sort of wealth that they desperately want.

But of don't attack your we should expect to see Russia start to turn against Israel as these days draw to a close.

And here is what a recent article in Pravda Russian News has to say about Israel....and it's title is, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ISRAEL?

One thing is claiming to be the victim all the time, over centuries. Another is acting in the same way, or worse, as those that are criticized for treating Jews badly. Certainly, Israel has the right to exist as a member of the international community…surely, if it behaves as such?

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, right? Human rights for those who behave as human beings, then. Obviously. And therefore those nations which do not behave as members of the international community, logically, should forfeit their rights to membership, just like a member of a sports club is banned if (s)he does not pay the fees or breaks the rules.

So why is Israel always playing the victim card, when it violates international law? And if Israel accepts the notion “an eye for an eye” then it cannot complain when inevitably the type of violations it commits daily go full cycle and are visited upon Tel Aviv. Can it? Ah! But to say such is anti-Semitism (an idiotic statement, because all the term means is “anti-Semitic” as regards Semitic languages, as per Hebrew and Arabic).

The main contributor towards the hatred in the international community towards Israel is not the Jews living their lives in Moscow, London, Teheran, Addis Ababa or Jerusalem, but rather, the actions of the state of Israel. Let us not pussy-foot around, let us have it out once and for all.

Israel tries to hide behind cowardly fences it builds for itself, namely making it a crime to question the existence of the Holocaust in many countries. Why the hysteria, why the exponential ultra-defensive posture regarding what seems to be obvious? For many of those who have visited concentration camps from the Second World War, there was never any doubt, until it became a crime to doubt.

Who is trying to cover up what? And why? Who made it a crime to speak about the African Holocaust, slavery, which was visited not upon 6 (?) million souls, but probably nearer to 70 million?

The way Israel behaves these days raises serious questions as to the integrity of this “people”, if indeed Israelis can be called a single people and not a motley collection of Ethiopians, Finns, Frenchmen, Dutchmen, Americans, Palestinians and Russians, to name but a few.

See it here, but understand this is some serious Russian propaganda;

Umm....Russia? Yeah, if you would read Ezekiel should understand the God knows full well who his "people" are. And if you continue reading 38 and 39 you would understand that because of your Godless ways and your persecution of Jews over the centuries.....your army will be decimated by God himself when you gather your army to attack these "people".

Good luck with that!

Why We Watch

Let's all remember that Jesus told us very clearly in Mark 13 to "Watch!"

Also there are various parables that Jesus tells that talk about the master returning and finding people asleep or not using their talents and gifts.....and it seems to not go well for those folks.

A reader had sent me a link to a site that also watches for news events as they tie into prophecy, and I liked what is sitting right on their home page so have posted it below;

First, a short Bible Prophecy 'equation'
to help show how close we are ...

+ Israel back in her Land again as a nation
+ Iran and allies threatening war against Israel
+ Russia rising as a powerful military threat ... and acting as a "guard" for Iran
+ China and allies armed with weapons capable of quickly destroying 1/3 of mankind
+ 'Weak mixed with strong' nations of the Roman Empire reuniting and rising in power (Europe?)
+ Teachings of 'false Prophets' deceiving and leading many
+ A Generation which is 'marked' by being "morally corrupt" and "filled with violence"
(The Bible uses the word 'corrupt' - like smelly, rotting meat)
+ 'The falling away'... churches and synagogues no longer teaching or "enduring" sound doctrine
+ Israel and Jerusalem . . . trouble, troubles, and more trouble
+ All nations turning against nation Israel . . .
= The Generation of the Rapture ... the Apocalypse ... Armageddon ... and Messiah's Return.

For the first time in history this prophetic 'equation' is nearly complete . . .
And all in THIS generation!!!

See link here;

That pretty much sums it up... doesn't it? We are the first (and only) generation that is having all these things happen at the same time. Also we are the only generation that has the technology available to make many of unfulfilled prophesies possible.

What an awesome time to be alive!!

Hat tip to April.
