Pastor Steve Cioccolanti, the pastor of Discover Church , Melbourne, Australia, has published a “Warning” video about 8 Super-Signs in the Heavens. You will be shocked to see the signs that he shows that are, according to him, what God has written about in the Bible. Talking about the Hebrew roots of end time prophecies, he points to 8 signs that might be seen until and before 70th Birthday of Israel. Why 70 is important? He explains: “Because Israel was given 70 years in Babylonian captivity and 70 years from the time that Jesus was born to the time when its temple was destroyed.” “So there is something important that is the fact that Israel is about to turn 70 years old since it was born again in 1948.” And here are the 8 signs, along with some observations about the date. And he affirms, “they will never occur again in your life time” and they “will start soon.”

1-Comet Ison (Nov 28, 2013) – NASA said is a comet as bright as the moon and it is predict to come in November 2013.

2-Blood Moon (April 15, 2014) – War tetrad is coming in April in 2014

Alternative News Reporters Ponder Significance of Comet Ison and Wormwood

“Nobody will recognize the signs on the sand.” – Nostradamus

I am looking into any and everything I can find these days about Comet Ison. I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry, and the MSM is ignoring the topic of comet Ison. I found some VERY interesting material to ponder in the videos posted below.  The videographer who discussed the bible codes he found on comet  Ison also made mention of Revelation 8.

Let’s look at what that verses say in the KJV [ see below ]. One video reveals the bible codes on Comet Ison and all the other words and phrases which occur in the same block of scripture:

Wormwood

Ison

The Famine

Harvest

Calamity

Poison

666

In a speculative scenario, knowing as we all well know that many of the governments of the world cannot be trusted to do right by their citizens and to WARN them of science and astronomy that is known to the elites, but suppressed from public perusal, supposing that we all agree that it’s quite well established that the government will suppress or censor information which it feels might lead to public panic, hoarding, rioting, runs on banks, civil unrest, et al – what IF comet Ison was a more serious threat than we have been lead to believe and what IF the governments of the world were suppressing this fact?

What IF it were finally left up to us, the “meek” – to warn each other about possible future events on our world which might threaten our safety, including celestial events which are beyond all human control, still yet to come, which may bring harm? I am completely aware that I may be wrong and that the passing of Comet Ison may turn out to be as big of a non-event as 12.21.2012. But something keeps me looking, watching reports, reading and studying the material that others have researched as well. The Bible has been eerily correct in predicting event after event, for hundreds of years.

What is Revelation 8 trying to tell us? Is there a relationship between Revelation 8 and comet Ison? That’s what I want to know. That’s why I am posting what I learn.  This is Revelation 8: 1-13:

Rev 8:1

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
Rev 8:2
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
Rev 8:3
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Rev 8:4
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
Rev 8:5
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Rev 8:6
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
Rev 8:7

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
Rev 8:8

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
Rev 8:9
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
Rev 8:10

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
Rev 8:11
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Rev 8:12

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Rev 8:13
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Please watch all of the videos from beginning to end.

Day of Choice for America on Tuesday November 6th 2012

“It’s a numbers game. The nation is leaning so far to the left right now that I can hear California falling into the sea. The 2012 election, more than anything, is a contest of competing American demographics that favor the young and the foolish over the old and the wise. Brace yourself for the next four years of America under Barack Obama. The demographics of the nation are leaning in his favor.”

Last Day of the Campaign – A Snapshot

Follow Election Day Results Live Real-time on Politico.com website

This is my last blog post about the 2012 presidential campaign, and boy am I glad. I’ve never become so weary of an election year as I have this one. Neither have I ever witnessed such a vapid campaign so utterly devoid of vision, leadership, new ideas, or real drive – by either candidate.

I have already voted about a week ago [ I voted for Romney ] but frankly it’s not as if the choice placed before me was stellar. I went for Romney based on his solid business background, well knowing his foreign policy skills are not that great. But I can be assured if Mitt Romney wins the White House he won’t hop on Air Force One and jet around the world, literally bowing to the waist to the Arab Princes who run OPEC. That was a moment of American shame I don’t think I will ever forget from four years ago. Under a Romney presidency I am pretty well convinced that Congress, the Senate and the White House will all get along better and will make a real effort to work together to solve our country’s many complex and pressing problems. I just have that gut level hunch, call it “woman’s intuition” that Mitt Romney is a man who can get along with Democrats when he needs to, that he well knows how to cross the political aisle and get the ear of the other side on issues, and that his leadership style won’t inspire all-out vitriol. In fact, I think he will discourage it. We need that.

I believe a Romney presidency will kick start a new era in D.C. of “take no prisoners” fiscal policy, where every piece of ludicrous pork that has been sliding under the radar in the federal budget for years will now be on the chopping block, where states will assume greater responsibility for the financial destinies of their own regions, where the re-invigoration of the U.S. military will resume to guarantee that our enemies well know our strength and therefore choose not to test it. I have no problem with any of that. America stands alone with few real friends in a dangerous wing-nut world and we need to maintain our military strength. It’s the only thing standing between us and all-0ut global anarchy. I am smart enough to see that with my own eyes. I’m not spiritually asleep and I am not misguided about how precarious the world situation actually is. I do not operate under the foolish notion that we can negotiate with the worldwide movement of radical Islam toward global Jihad with the West. I pity the Left Wing ideologues who think that appeasement and “cultural inclusiveness” will make the wickedness of the world go away. They are so dead wrong at this moment in American history that it does truly bring pause. We have to maintain a strong military or we can expect suicide bombers to start detonating on American streets within a year or two. These are the facts and I am not averse to facing them.

I am of the mind that the less federal government we have the better off the nation is. Period. I believe a Romney presidency will begin setting itself to the task of either seriously reforming Obamacare, or just rolling back the legislation altogether. I’m all for that. Barack Obama steam rolled that law into existence over the vociferous and strenuous protests of literally millions of middle Americans three years ago this past summer, and that was the beginning of the souring of middle America onto Mr. Obama. Our voices were disregarded and we didn’t appreciate it one bit.

My instinct is that a Romney presidency would bring a renewed interest in Washington D.C. of actually listening to the voice of the American people and cooperating with it, rather than ignoring it. Because of Romney’s religious background I don’t get the feeling he is going to be a “gung-ho UN” sort of guy. I could be really wrong about this but I think he has the wisdom to know that we need to keep the United Nations out of American affairs whenever possible. In fact, I actually think that alot of good could come out of a Romney presidency that would begin the behemoth task of turning the nation’s fortunes around.

The only problem with all of this is that I actually doubt Romney can win, unless undecided voters have some sort of real spiritual epiphany between today and tomorrow. They are holding all the cards in this election, along with women voters, Latino voters, and college aged voters who voted for Obama the last time.  There’s always the hope that the millions of first time voters who sent Barack Obama to the White House four years ago will change their minds this time and vote for the other guy. There’s always the hope that they might have a real change of heart, after living unemployed in their parent’s basement for three years, subsisting on food stamps, submitting their resume to more than 200 companies every 90 days with no response, finally slumming it up at the “Occupy” protests because they have little else to do. Maybe these young American Obama minions from 2008  have reconsidered, maybe they have possibly decided that they are sick of living in their mom’s basements and that “a change would do them good.”

That’s what it would take at this point for Romney to win: the young people who are college aged, the Hispanic / Latino vote and the undecided women voters would have to come out IN FORCE voting for Mitt Romney in order to tip the scales and change the future of the nation.

At a certain point all one can do is throw up their hands to fate, sit back and watch. But here is what the country will face under four more years of Barack Obama. For young people, don’t pack your ripped jeans yet, because you will be living in your mama’s basement for quite some time yet to come. There won’t be any substantial change in the jobless numbers during 2013-2016 under Obama. Just renew your food stamp card instead. For Islamic radicals who are poised to infiltrate every media outlet in the country in order to “soften up the American citizen” to the idea of a nation whose population is 25 to 40% Muslim within 10 years, congratulations. Your guy won. You may now proceed to advance your “Islamification” of America program unabated, and with the full political support of the Commander-in-Chief. For the Occupy movement with it’s communist / socialist underpinnings and it’s murky connections to the CIA sponsored “Anonymous” group, congratulations as well. Go out there and start tearing up the city squares again, shitting in the streets, breaking glass and setting fires. Your guy won. You now have official permission from the Obama White House to raise hell and get out of jail free for it.

And finally a word of caution to any US Ambassador who is serving overseas in a precariously violent and volatile environ. Don’t bother sending any more emails to the Obama State Department to beg for military support and back-up. He just won re-election. Your requests will be ignored. His White House is not thinking about you. Just like Christopher Stevens, you have been officially thrown under the bus by the Obama White House. You may consider your service to America as a sacrifice which may include your death at the hands of radical Islamic hellions who hate you while you work to bring civilized society to their ravaged failed states. Your nation is not going to back you up in your position so you may as well know that in advance. You are serving under the Obama administration, so all bets are off that your frantic emails calling for help will even be noticed before the throngs set fire to your diplomatic outpost and suffocate you in it. That’s what happened to Christopher Stevens and it could happen to you.

For the voters who are re-choosing Barack Obama and inviting four more years of American decline in so doing, realize that it won’t be reversible by 2016. There is a tipping point just ahead. Beyond that, I don’t see how the fortunes of the nation can be re-directed without the pretext of another war. Wars have been used to re-ignite failing economies before. I’m sure it’s not off the table as the Obama White House plans their next four years. It really saddens me that there is no averting this outcome. But such a massive change of heart among young liberal voters, women voters and ethnic voters is not something I see happening. I can blog my heart out and it won’t make a bit of difference.

It’s a numbers game. The nation is leaning so far to the left right now that I can hear California falling into the sea. The 2012 election, more than anything, is a contest of competing American demographics that favor the young and the foolish over the old and the wise. Brace yourself for the next four years of America under Barack Obama. The demographics of the nation are leaning in his favor.

Humanity’s Nihilistic Death Wish: New Age and Christian Videos Predict End of the World in 2011

Image of the top layers of the earth's atmosph...

Moonrise over the earth reveals our pale blue ionosphere

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.

Nihilistic thinking abounds in early 2011. Two opposing belief systems now predict the same “end of the world’ this year.

What’s up with the mass death wish?

Is something approaching that is so dire, that many would rather die than face it?

As two seemingly opposing spiritual forces who don’t know one another, never agree, and fight like cats and dogs, look at what both the new age movement and fundamentalist Christianity are now touting: both belief systems are now predicting the end of the world as we know it in 2011. What’s one to make of such a thing? I just watched the video described below, and need to inform my readers, that the world will not end in 2011, neither will it be burned to a crisp, as displayed in the video.

But the solar super storms which are flying our way sure could play havoc with planetary communications systems. It might be a good idea to have several sets of walkie talkies around with an extra bag of batteries, if you need to stay in touch over short distances of 12 miles or less and live in a flat open valley region. Just an fyi.

As for “end of the world” thinking, I’m not sure what to make of it other than the most recent mass Nihilist dream of an immature  species spinning out of control. Seeking escape from the responsibilities of spiritual adulthood through death is a very teenage thing to do, and it seems that these days that’s exactly what humanity is doing, dreaming of escape through death. I find it all quite interesting, but I do not believe for one minute that the world will end in a fiery wave of incineration this year, or next year, or the year after, and so on. The end of the world has been predicted before, many many times, with just as much vigor and conviction. It was predicted right before the century turned in 1999. In 1194 Gordon Michael Scallion predicted more than half of the USA would be under water by the year 2000.

There is not a doubt in anyone’s mind that humanity is convulsing and the earth is shaking, more than usual. But the “end of the world” 2011 madness actually runs afoul of biblical teaching itself, which again and again reminds us that regarding the many prophesied events detailed in scripture, “no man knows the hour” and that trying to predict these events is the height of folly. That folly has been proven out again and again since the early advent of the Christian church.

Epic Fails Regarding Christian Predictions That Never Took Place, Historical List:

Failed prophecies: About 30 CE: The Christian Scriptures (New Testament), when interpreted literally, appear to record many predictions by Yeshua of Nazareth (Jesus Christ) that God’s Kingdom would arrive within a very short period, or was actually in the process of arriving. For example, Jesus is recorded as saying in Matthew 16:28: “…there shall be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.” In Matthew 24:34, Yeshua is recorded as saying: “…This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” Since the life expectancy in those days was little over 30 years, Jesus appears to have predicted his second coming sometime during the 1st century CE. It didn’t happen. More details.

About 60 CE: Interpreting the Epistles of Paul of Tarsus literally, his writings seem to imply that Jesus would return and usher in a rapture during the lifetime of persons who were living in the middle of the 1st century. More details.

About 90 CE: Saint Clement 1 predicted that the world end would occur at any moment.

2nd Century CE: Prophets and Prophetesses of the Montanist movement predicted that Jesus would return sometime during their lifetime and establish the New Jerusalem in the city of Pepuza in Asia Minor.

365 CE: A man by the name of Hilary of Poitiers, announced that the end would happen that year. It didn’t.

375 to 400 CE: Saint Martin of Tours, a student of Hilary, was convinced that the end would happen sometime before 400 CE.

500 CE: This was the first year-with-a-nice-round-number-panic. The antipope Hippolytus and an earlier Christian academic Sextus Julius Africanus had predicted Armageddon at about this year.

968 CE: An eclipse was interpreted as a prelude to the end of the world by the army of the German emperor Otto III.

992: Good Friday coincided with the Feast of the Annunciation; this had long been believed to be the event that would bring forth the Antichrist, and thus the end-times events foretold in the book of Revelation. Records from Germany report that a new sun rose in the north and that as many as 3 suns and 3 moons were fighting. There does not appear to be independent verification of this remarkable event.

1000-JAN-1: Many Christians in Europe had predicted the end of the world on this date. As the date approached, Christian armies waged war against some of the Pagan countries in Northern Europe. The motivation was to convert them all to Christianity, by force if necessary, before Christ returned in the year 1000. Meanwhile, some Christians had given their possessions to the Church in anticipation of the end. Fortunately, the level of education was so low that many citizens were unaware of the year. They did not know enough to be afraid. Otherwise, the panic might have been far worse than it was. Unfortunately, when Jesus did not appear, the church did not return the gifts. Serious criticism of the Church followed. The Church reacted by exterminating some heretics. Agitation settled down quickly, as it later did in the year 2000.

1000-MAY: The body of Charlemagne was disinterred on Pentecost. A legend had arisen that an emperor would rise from his sleep to fight the Antichrist.

1005-1006: A terrible famine throughout Europe was seen as a sign of the nearness of the end.

1033: Some believed this to be the 1000th anniversary of the death and resurrection of Jesus. His second coming was anticipated. Jesus’ actual date of execution is unknown, but is believed to be in the range of 27 to 33 CE.

1147: Gerard of Poehlde decided that the millennium had actually started in 306 CE during Constantine’s reign. Thus, the world end was expected in 1306 CE.

1179: John of Toledo predicted the end of the world during 1186. This estimate was based on the alignment of many planets.

1205: Joachim of Fiore predicted in 1190 that the Antichrist was already in the world, and that King Richard of England would defeat him. The Millennium would then begin, sometime before 1205.

1284: Pope Innocent III computed this date by adding 666 years onto the date the Islam was founded.

1346 and later: The black plague spread across Europe, killing one third of the population. This was seen as the prelude to an immediate end of the world. Unfortunately, the Christians had previously killed a many of the cats, fearing that they might be familiars of Witches. The fewer the cats, the more the rats. It was the rat fleas that spread the black plague.

1496: This was approximately 1500 years after the birth of Jesus. Some mystics in the 15th century predicted that the millennium would begin during this year.

1524: Many astrologers predicted the imminent end of the world due to a world wide flood. They obviously had not read the Genesis story of the rainbow.

1533: Melchior Hoffman predicted that Jesus’ return would happen a millennium and a half after the nominal date of his execution, in 1533. The New Jerusalem was expected to be established in Strasbourg, Germany. He was arrested and died in a Strasbourg jail.

1669: The Old Believers in Russia believed that the end of the world would occur in this year. 20 thousand burned themselves to death between 1669 and 1690 to protect themselves from the Antichrist.

1689: Benjamin Keach, a 17th century Baptist, predicted the end of the world for this year.

1736: British theologian and mathematician William Whitson predicted a great flood similar to Noah’s for OCT-13 of this year.

1792: This was the date of the end of the world calculated by some believers in the Shaker movement.

1794: Charles Wesley, one of the founders of Methodism, thought Doomsday would be in this year.

1830: Margaret McDonald, a Christian prophetess, predicted that Robert Owen would be the Antichrist. Owen helped found New Harmony, IN.

1832?: Joseph Smith (1805-1844) was the founder of the Church of Christ, which became the Restorationist movement after many schisms. It now includes The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — a.k.a. the Mormons, and about a hundred other denominations and sects. He heard a voice while praying. He wrote, in Doctrines and Covenants section 130:

14: “I was once praying very earnestly to know the time of the coming of the Son of Man, when I heard a voice repeat the following:”

15: “Joseph, my son, if thou livest until thou art eighty-five years old, thou shalt see the face of the Son of Man; therefore let this suffice, and trouble me no more on this matter.”

16: “I was left thus, without being able to decide whether this coming referred to the beginning of the millennium or to some previous appearing, or whether I should die and thus see his face.”

17: “I believe the coming of the Son of Man will not be any sooner than that time.” 14
The year in which this event occurred is not recorded. However, one commentator suggested 1832 or earlier. 16 Smith is later recorded as having said:

“I prophesy in the name of the Lord God, and let it be written–the Son of Man will not come in the clouds of heaven till I am eighty-five years old.” 17

Smith would have reached the age of 85 during 1890. Unfortunately, by that year, Smith had been dead for almost a half century, having been assassinated by a mob. Note that his prophecy is ambiguous. It can be interpreted that: Jesus would return during 1890 (which did not materialize) or that
1890 would pass without Jesus’ return (which did come to pass).

Some anti-Mormon sources quote only verses 14 and 15, and draw the former conclusion — that Smith’s prophecy failed.

 

So  just like any other teenager you have ever known, are they inclined to listen to wisdom? Of course not. Humankind is currently obsessed with predicting the year, month and day of it’s own final demise, even though the Holy Spirit has warned us, biblically, and repeatedly, not to do so.

I am well aware of a doom and gloom American Christian sect which is now predicting the “end of the world” on May 21st 2011 of this year, and I have listened to a radio interview by one of their representing believers. What I have found unusual this morning is a contemporary “new age channeled” video which, it appears, is saying something quite similar. Below is the video, along with several others along the same theme.

What breaks my heart the most about these dire predictions is the certain inevitable buffeting and further discrediting which will fly at Christianity once the day comes and goes on 5.21.2011, as any other day in God’s universe does, and absolutely nothing happens. There may be a terror attack, or another riot in the Mideast, there may be a rash of earthquakes, but the world will NOT end on that day. Christianity will become a deeper laughing stock as the day ends, and the rise of the Antichrist will have been helped along a little bit more by the folly and foolishness of groups of Christians who believe they are right, and instead are dead wrong. That’s what bothers me about this the most.

Posting these collected videos below is neither an endorsement or a denial. I am simply posting the current “end of the world” mass death wish religious phenomenon for readers to examine. This “death wish” of humankind’s is getting worse, and I am wondering why. Right now I am not ready to write about my own conclusions on this topic, so I will post examples of the phenomenon for others to consider.
