You have meteorite showers causing fires everywhere and buildings and all sorts of things on fire. There will be smoke and dust everywhere. The air will get very bad. We haven't seen air pollution like it will get then. Another thing many don't consider is the air in Hell. Brimstone is sulfur. The air in Hell is so full of sulfur smoke that it catches in your lungs and burns so bad that you can't breath it. Can you imagine not being able to breath for all eternity? Show more

I find this to be true. I want to talk Bible a lot but the problem I run into is that everyone I try to talk with believes differently than I do. The very thing that should bring us together drives us apart. I have been Playing my KJV on DVD in my house for over 3 years 24/7. I have heard the whole Bible hundreds of times. I also study for hours a day. I have nothing else to live for. I am single and retired. There are so many doctrines that are not scripturally correct that I can't seem to talk with anyone. I find that knowing the Bible and doing it are 2 different things. We are all supposed to say the same thing but it doesn't seem to be possible. I have had several Computer Libraries with hundreds of books in them. I find that PHD's are more trouble than they are worth. So many with PHD's wouldn't know the truth if it bit them. I am sooo mentally lonely! Show more

First one man then all of a sudden there were 83 people doing it! This had to be stopped! How were they going to find Jesus when 83 people were preaching the Kingdom of God and doing miracles. There are many thing in the Bible that crack me up. There are also many times when I wanted to throw my Bible out the window. When God called Nebuchadnezzar His servant I almost quit reading it. But I kept on reading and God showed me what He meant. The Holy Ghost keeps teaching me things that change everything I know. I almost hate saying anything because I learn things that change everything. Show more

End times prophesy is one of my favorite things to study. I believe in the pre-tribulation rapture. It can come at any time. Jesus said it will come on a day like any other day. People will be going about business as usual and some people will just vanish. When the seals are opened it will not be business as usual. At the first seal when someone begins to go about conquering it won't be business as usual. A lot of people believe that most church goers will be taken and only a few will be left behind. I believe the opposite. Few church people will be taken. most of the persecuted and people in muslim prisons and places like that will go but party churches will probably not be taken. They will wake up and realize that things are going to get really bad. Jesus and the Apostles say some pretty scary things. It would behoove us to pay attention to these things. Show more

We are warned about people having itching ears and heaping up teachers. No matter what you want to hear, someone is teaching it. Jesus says the road to destruction is wide and many go on it but the path to Heaven is narrow and few find it. Many want a big congregation and will preach what draws the crowd. Many people went away when Jesus said some things. The Apostles got severe persecutions for telling people that they were sinners and didn't have it right. Paul says we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice which is our reasonable service. I am no-one to talk. I have the worst time resisting temptation. It doesn't take much for me to give in to nicotine, caffeine, cookies and many other things I don't want to admit. How can a fool like me ever get into a Holy Heaven? Show more

It...Quite a few years ago I picked up a gospel tract that said to read the gospel of John 5 times and read I Corinthians 13 and Hebrews 11 every day. It was a good idea, What I got from it was that reading a book 5 times is a good way to get to know it. I suggest to read the book of I Corinthians 5 times and then ask yourself if there is a single church that believes it and puts it into practice. I can't find a single one that seems to have even read it. I believe that is why the miracle working church of old is gone. Show more

The enemy is playing on their hearts and minds like never before. Equality doctrines are leading them away from the authority that saves. We are saved by the authority of The Father and The Bridegroom. It is by the Authority of God's Word that He created the universe and everything in it. He Speaks and it is done. My mother can't save me. 2 wives did me no good. I have to be the Bride of Christ. That is hard for me to accept. I was never the obedient type. After about 50 or 60 years of being rebellious it is very hard to deny my own will and submit to the will of God. We are told to deny ourselves daily and take up our cross and follow Jesus. We are not to get too attached to anything in this life because we are soon going to leave it all behind. 20 years goes by like nothing. You can waste 20 years like a week. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. Who is actually ready to go right now? Show more

I was on my knees next to my bed pouring my heart out to God. Jesus told me that I had to love authority. I told Him he might as well kill me now and send me to Hell because that was impossible. Never tell Jesus that anything is impossible. I have come to love His authority and hope in it. Don't wait until you are 62 years old to come to respect authority. I am still not as obedient as I would like to be but I am learning and growing. In the 70s there was a great falling away from authority. We started doing everything that a father does not want his children to do. Boys grew their hair long and wouldn't get jobs. Girls got promiscuous and we basically threw morality out the window. We are paying for it now. How can a child get into Heaven? Jesus is not going to put up with it for much longer, Show more

As soon as the church began false teachers came in teaching anything they felt like teaching to get followers to themselves. They wouldn't let the Apostle John in some churches and really didn't like the apostle Paul's teachings. He told women to be quiet. Women can't live without talking. In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin. If we have to give account for every word we have spoken then it will take a lot of time to go through the women. I have watched heresies enter the church for many years myself. The latest thing is to empower women. This is a damnable heresy. Taking the authority away from men and giving it to women is sending millions of church goers to Hell. I have a big problem with it. It's why I don't go to church anymore. I stay at home and study my Bible alone.😥 Show more
Amazon's electronic palm reader, known as Amazon One, launched at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver last week to much fanfare promising a new method for the future of identification and payments.
This is notable because it's the first deployment of Amazon One's biometric reader outside of an Amazon-owned business, and it's certainly a sign of things to come. In fact, Amazon seems to be focused on rolling out this technology everywhere.
The company recently announced it has acquired its initial third-party customer ticketing company AXS, which will now install Amazon's One reader in its locations starting with Denver, Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Customers purchasing tickets will be able to associate their AXS Mobile ID with Amazon One at dedicated stations before entering the amphitheater. They can enroll at a second station once inside the theatre to use the reader at future AXS events.
However the new tech has always been about more than just fast payments. It's about Amazon controlling and verifying identities.
Amazon's new technology will soon be heading to sports stadiums and music venues across the U.S. AXS already handles ticketing for a large number of concert and sports venues in the U.S., including the Staples Center in Los Angeles and T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, among a host of others.
Amazon One is already being used at Amazon's own stores, as well as several Whole Foods owned by Amazon which are testing the technology. Customers who sign up for Amazon One provide a scan of their palm print. Once registered, those palm prints can then be used to purchase items throughout the device-enabled stores. The devices are supposed to provide a quick ease of payment. But many have brought up privacy-related concerns when it comes to the devices.
"When a ticketholder is ready to enter the amphitheater using their palm, there is a designated entry line where Amazon One is enabled. When a fan hovers their palm over the Amazon One device, a unique palm signature is built by our computer vision technology," Amazon stated in a press release.
Amazon One originally launched a year ago at just a few Amazon locations and vowed to make a big push for third-party use of the device. Gizmodo noted that today "seems to be the official start of that initiative, meaning the palm readers will likely start showing up at all kinds of locations."
Amazon promises the technology is secure and doesn't store any information locally.
"The service is designed to be highly secure and uses custom-built algorithms and hardware to create a person's unique palm signature. Once enrolled, the service is contactless and ticketholders can use their palm to enter AXS ticketed venues in less than a second or two. We're excited to soon hear how AXS fans like using Amazon One to effortlessly enter their favorite events, so they can spend less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the event," Amazon said.
However, Amazon's Palm Reader has caused a lot of blowback by the U.S. Congress, who recently questioned Amazon about the invasive technology. A group of senators sent new Amazon CEO Andy Jassy a letter pushing the company for more information about how it scans and stores customer palm prints for use in some of its retail stores.
In the new letter, Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Jon Ossoff (D-GA) are asking Jassy for details about how Amazon plans to expand its biometric payment system, and if the data collected will be used by the company for targeting ads.
"Amazon's expansion of biometric data collection through Amazon One raises serious questions about Amazon's plans for this data and its respect for user privacy, including about how Amazon may use the data for advertising and tracking purposes," the senators wrote.
The company had in the past sold biometric facial recognition services to law enforcement in the United States. Its facial recognition technology was the subject of a data privacy lawsuit. And it was found to be still storing Alexa voice data even after users deleted their audio files. Are we willing to trust Amazon with our biometric markers?
So whether you like this idea or not--and privacy advocates are skeptical to say the least--you're probably going to be seeing it in a lot of new locations soon. Welcome to the biometric future.
As COVID-19 continues to circulate around the world, it becomes increasingly clear it poses a threat to more than just global health. Governments all over the world have used the crisis to expand their power and trample individual liberty. As 2021 nears its end, governments are increasingly dividing the world into two camps - the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.
For example, on September 9th, President Biden held a press conference in which he announced a series of new vaccine mandates potentially impacting more than 100 million Americans. Biden is authoring rules to require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week. The ink hasn't even dried yet on those executive orders, and already The Hill reports he's mulling the idea of implementing vaccine requirements for all air travel.
Unfortunately, such COVID tyranny isn't limited to the United States. In South Australia, the government is rolling out a new app that requires citizens to take a photo of themselves and report their location on demand within 15 minutes of authorities requesting it. The non-compliant will face a police investigation.
Recently, Australian MP Daniel Andrews vowed to "lock out" the unvaccinated when it comes to medical care and conducting commerce. "There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated," Andrews stated. "We're going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be."
In Italy, flying drones monitor the temperatures of beachgoers "to track COVID-19 and prevent health emergencies." Israel, France, and countless other nations have set up "vaccine passport" systems. Under these systems, the unvaccinated are denied access to gyms, concerts, restaurants, and sporting events. In the United States, similar measures have been put in place in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Universities make the vaccine a requirement for enrollment, and in some cases, the unvaccinated are denied medical care. For example, one Florida doctor sent a letter to her patients telling them she will no longer treat the unvaccinated.
Throughout the world, society is singling out the unvaccinated for punishment. Those who refuse the COVID vaccines face potential loss of jobs, healthcare, freedom of movement, and liberty in general. Those who support vaccine mandates and vaccine passports want to ostracize the unvaccinated from society. They seek to apply maximum pressure to force the unvaccinated into compliance.
Does any of this sound eerily familiar? It should. The Book of Revelation describes a similar system whereby the people of the world are forced to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead. Those who refuse to comply will be unable to buy or sell. They'll effectively be cut off from society.
Are COVID vaccines the mark of the beast written about in the Book of Revelation? No. The mark of the beast will involve a conscious decision to give one's allegiance to the Antichrist. No one will accept it by mistake. Nevertheless, vaccine mandates and passports create a social system enabling the mark of the beast. If they are allowed to stand, they will create a mark of the beast system indistinguishable in impact from the true mark of the beast. In doing so, they'll pave the way for the rise of the Antichrist and the mark of the beast as outlined in the Book of Revelation. To understand why, let's take a closer look at the biblical description of the mark.
What is the Mark?
What does the Bible actually say about the mark of the beast? It says the mark will be an outward expression of a person's allegiance to the Antichrist. As global dictator, he'll require it, and the mark will appear on a person's right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16). What will it look like? We don't know for sure.
It could be a tattoo, a microchip, or something else (maybe even a vaccine). But whatever it looks like, it won't be concealed. It will be visible to everyone. We don't know the exact form it will take, but it will be a number representing the Antichrist's name. His number is 666 (Revelation 13:18).
Those who refuse the mark of the beast will be shut out of the global economy. They'll be unable to buy or sell anything without it (Revelation 13:17). Some will even face beheading for their refusal to accept it (Revelation 20:4).
What Happens to Those Who Refuse the Mark?
After the Antichrist enters the Temple and declares himself God (2 Thessalonians 2:4), he'll require everyone on earth to accept the mark (Revelation 13:16). Accepting the mark will be a pledge of allegiance to the Antichrist. Again, this will either be the number 666 or a name that adds up to 666 (Revelation 13:18). All who accept the mark will display it on their right hand or their forehead (Revelation 13:16). This will make it easy for society to identify them. Society will blacklist anyone who refuses the mark. Every buy/sell transaction will be linked to it. As a result, those without it will be unable to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). This will put enormous social pressure on people to accept the mark.
Think about it. Imagine if you couldn't buy or sell anything. How would you get food to survive? How would you get shelter, clothes, and the basic necessities of life? The pressure for most people will be too much to bear. They'll give in and accept the mark. It's likely only committed Christians or devoted members of a religion condemning such a practice will refuse the mark. In some cases, the consequences will be worse than economic. Some people will be martyred for their refusal to accept the mark (Revelation 20:4).
Enabling the Mark of the Beast System
While I don't believe the current COVID vaccines are the actual mark of the beast, vaccine mandates and vaccine passports impose a social system identical to the one imposed by the mark of the beast. How? By blacklisting from society anyone who refuses to accept the vaccine. How many people have already lost their jobs? How many people are now under threat of losing their jobs? In some places, the unvaccinated aren't allowed to enter concerts, sporting events, restaurants, or gyms. In some countries, they aren't even allowed to enter grocery stores.
In pushing vaccine mandates and passports, the world is paving the way for the rise of the Antichrist and the implementation of the mark of the beast. Whether or not you accept a COVID vaccine is a personal choice. Feel free to take it or not take. That's up to you. I support your choice either way. But if you support coercive vaccine mandates and vaccine passports, you're complicit in establishing the infrastructure and the precedent for the mark of the beast system.
To be clear – the current COVID vaccines are NOT the mark of the beast. If you're vaccinated, there's nothing wrong with that. If you're unvaccinated, there's nothing wrong with that either. Whether or not you're vaccinated or unvaccinated does nothing to establish the mark of the beast system. However, vaccine mandates and vaccine passports do. They create the very foundation for the mark of the beast system.
Every Christian should oppose vaccine mandates and vaccine passports, because supporting them is the same as supporting the mark of the beast system. In practice, they're one and the same. If you accept the idea the government has the rightful power to inject a substance into someone against their will (or pressure them to submit), then government power has no limit. Unfortunately, far too many people believe the government does hold this power. And their belief enables the mark of the beast system, creating a world ripe for the rise of the Antichrist.
This is yet another sign of the times in which we live. Israel is back in the land (Jeremiah 23:7-. The Jewish people are back in Jerusalem (Luke 21:24-28). The Gospel is being preached throughout the world (Matthew 24:14). And now we see the mark of the beast system embraced by much of the world. Jesus said when you see all these events take place, look up, because He's coming soon (Luke 21:28). So use what little time we have left to spread the Gospel, because Jesus is coming!

If the Holy spirit leaves the earth just before the Rapture then nobody could make it to the First Resurrection at the 7th trumpet. I don't believe that in II Thessalonians 2:7 where it says he who letteth will let until he be taken out of the way, is talking about the Holy Spirit. I believe it is an archangel who is unnamed. Most likely Michael, Daniel 12:1. Show more
Mahyar Tousi of mahyartousi.co.uk/ has done an excellent job on this, though he isn't a Christian he has great insight into politics around the world. In this video he exposes the flipflopping government of Boris Johnson getting involved with the EU Covid vaccine passport scheme. I can just hear Sturgeon's Scottish Government lavishing at the thought of being in some part of the EU.
For us, as Christians this is surly a step towards the Revived Roman Empire of the European Union. This is where the prophet Daniel and John in the book of Revelation write about that would come in to pass in the tribulation days that is launched the by Antichrist.
