"`In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' Acts 2:17-21The slaughter and burning of livestock (called culling) is an attempt to purge the scourge, to curb the spread of foot-and-mouth disease. It has the effect of either straining the budgets or altering the diets of many many people and, on another level, further reduces the global food supply. (famine) This action is on such a scale that it has been headline news for some time. Is this what Peter was inspired to direct our attention to as a sign at the close of the age?
`And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 32 And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls. Joel 2:28-32
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 25/23/01: Clinton Hailed, Heckled in N. Ireland
An oracle concerning Damascus: "See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. 2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. 3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites," declares the LORD Almighty. 4 "In that day the glory of Jacob will fade; the fat of his body will waste away. 5 It will be as when a reaper gathers the standing grain and harvests the grain with his arm-- as when a man gleans heads of grain in the Valley of Rephaim. 6 Yet some gleanings will remain, as when an olive tree is beaten, leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches, four or five on the fruitful boughs," declares the LORD, the God of Israel. 7 In that day men will look to their Maker and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel. 8 They will not look to the altars, the work of their hands, and they will have no regard for the Asherah poles and the incense altars their fingers have made. 9 In that day their strong cities, which they left because of the Israelites, will be like places abandoned to thickets and undergrowth. And all will be desolation. 10 You have forgotten God your Savior; you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress. Therefore, though you set out the finest plants and plant imported vines, 11 though on the day you set them out, you make them grow, and on the morning when you plant them, you bring them to bud, yet the harvest will be as nothing in the day of disease and incurable pain. 12 Oh, the raging of many nations-- they rage like the raging sea! Oh, the uproar of the peoples-- they roar like the roaring of great waters! 13 Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee far away, driven before the wind like chaff on the hills, like tumbleweed before a gale. 14 In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us. Isaiah 17The pope is held an open air mass in Damascus Syria on May 5. I wonder if he was administering ''last rites?''
Furthermore, in your bedchamber do not curse a king, and in your sleeping rooms do not curse a rich man, for a bird of the heavens will carry the sound and the winged creature will make the matter known. Ecclesiastes 10:20 (NASB)The Kings and the Rick have a great interest in who might be cursing them, don't they? Surveillance happens. I find it interesting that the birds of the heavens that many accept as demonic spies can also be seen in this Dragon Eye. The world's attention has been drawn to the advanced state of spy technology of the US spy plane recently captured by China. There are many popular movies that show some of the surveillance technologies being used to monitor the activity of anyone of interest to those who employ them. We know we are being watched, and most have become quite comfortable with this state of affairs. After all, it is for our safety and protection. Well, so we're told. Makes a good bed time story, doesn't it? It's so nice to know such trustworthy people are keeping watch for us, so we don't have to. Now maybe we can all sleep more soundly. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Dear Bob Schlenker:
My name is Changyu Wang. I wrote you a letter 10 days ago. In that
letter, I gave you my ID, but not tell you who I am exactly. Now it's the
time to do so.
I am the ONE whom you have waited for about two thousand years. I am the
ONE who had been slain and now is risen again. I am the ONE who comes
here to fulfill GOD's Words. I am the ONE who will bring all the faithful
Christians into the Heaven.
You may feel so surprised about this announcement, since it is at last
come. If you are wise Christian (keep watching in the past), you must be
ready for this day.
Please be no fear with you. It's the time to act. Everything in the
Bible that has not fulfilled yet before, will come to pass very quickly.
Now it's your duty to tell all your Christian brothers and sisters that
I am already here, and let them know that the Kingdom of GOD is coming
very soon. There will be a very short time from now to the day of GOD's
Kingdom. So, you may need to work very hard.
Of course, I will not force you do anything you don't want. It is your
choice to stay in the left (follows) or right (watchers). But I will
certainly count what you have done for me from now on.
This letter is only mailed to a few people I chosen. I'll list them
below and I hope you will never mind.
Please go and see me in my website:
GOD bless you.

As it is written:
Matthew 24:4-5: Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For
many will come in my name, claiming, `I am the Christ, ' and will deceive
Matthew 24:23-24: At that time if anyone says to you, `Look, here is the
Christ!' or, `There he is!' do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and
false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive
even the elect--if that were possible.
For the last sixteen hundred years there has never been an occasion in which there has not been at least twelve months because it was always calculated into the equation. But how do we reckon the Feast of Purim in a year that the barley matures at the end of the eleventh month?
No Feast of Purim?
Shivers ran down my spine. No, Purim would not go uncelebrated; it would be celebrated in conjunction with the Feast of Passover! This could only happen if the calendar reckoning was kept according to the "Ancient Paths" and "Living Oracles" given to our Fathers. Only in a year in which the barley matures early, could we have the coincidence of these two prophetic events: the Feast of Purim, "which is a shadow picture of good things to come," and the Feast of Passover – the most vivid rehearsal of God's deliverance in all of history. Let us consider the possibilities of this synchronicity as a double witness for an intermediate fulfillment of the doubled Feasts of Purim and Passover.
The Feast of Purim is the remembrance of when the Jews made a pre-emptive strike against their enemies. Haaman, an anti-Torah tyrant in league with the world empire, had long plotted to destroy the Jews and planned the attack well in advance. The leading spokesman of the world government turned a blind eye to Haaman's overt plan to exterminate the Jewish peoples. When this world leader read the historical records of the kingdom, he discovered that a Jew was instrumental in saving his life. He later realized that he was married to a Jew. His heart was turned and he permitted the Jews to defend themselves by launching a pre-emptive strike against their enemies.
According to the pattern in the scroll of Esther, the plan and resources for the attack against the Jews were made out of Shushan (currently - Tehran, Iran). The pre-emptive strike was launched on the 13th day of the month. The battle culminated on the fourteenth of the month in the city of Shushan. Haaman, was taken out first, before the pre-emptive strike, and then the sons of Haaman were hung on their own devious device on the fourteenth of the month. Sunset began the victory party on the fifteenth day of the month.
"BULLETIN: Orthodox and Hassidic Rabbonim Declare "Time of Jacob's Trouble" - Reported by ben Yosef - March 22, 2001.
At the Western Wall today and in yeshivas and synagogues and religious schools throughout Israel the sound of shofar blasts, the singing of Hebrew Psalms and cries and tears and wails of repentance were heard in response to a declaration by the Gedolei Yisrael (Great Ones of Israel) formally recognizing the beginning of the "time of Jacob's trouble."
What is unusual about this year's Yom Kippur Katan is that in light of the 6-month-old Palestinian uprising which has claimed the lives of many Israelis, the rabbis have added the designation as "a time of Jacob's trouble."
Further it is signed by ALL 27 of the leading Orthodox and Chassidic sages, both the "maranan verabonon" (masters and teachers) and the "gedolei ha-Torah vehaChassidus (Torah sages among the Chassidut)."
The declaration begins and is formally designated: 'IT IS A TROUBLED TIME FOR YA'ACOV BUT HE WILL BE SAVED.'
