Im sure alot of people by now are well informed about whats taken place in the Middle East...israel has launched military attacks against hezbollah..and hezbollah has returned fire as well....now other arab nations are starting to jump into the mix..with iran being something to watch out for..alll these big events happening almost on a daily basis now..has got me thinking the END must be closer then we think...take a look at these scriptures..and tell me if you are thinking what im thinking...is this prophecy unfolding right before our very eyes?




]Luk 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.


Luk 21:21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.


Luk 21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.


Luk 21:23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.


Luk 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive(p.o.w's) into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.


Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (also see: Rev 6:1)


Luk 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.


Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.


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


Luk 21:29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;


Luk 21:30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.


Luk 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.


Luk 21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.


Luk 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.


Luk 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and [so] that day come upon you unawares.


Luk 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.


Luk 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.


In conclusion i believe that as soon as Israel is about to be attacked by iran (very soon) then will our et god's finally reveal themselves(uncloak) via planet Nibiru aka God's Kingdom(The New Jerusalem)..I believe all us humans across the world who have raised our universal awareness level strong enough to see out of the matrix put in place by satan(reptillans) will be accounted worthy to escape via rapture(instant teleportion) and will be able to join god in his kingdom.


Dan 7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

Well, it doesnt have to be. Mankind has a death wish, and if we dont correct these things, we will get our wish very soon.
WE allow the world to desintigrate around us. We, the little people. WE dont do as much as we could. WE are at the mercy of governments and very complacent with what they do. Therefore, we are as much to blame as the top guns.

Planet X - NIBIRU - Rahab- (whichever name you prefer to use) is NOT going to be the Kingdom of God.....

It could be one of the "signs".... or, if it DOES have inhabitants I doubt they're on our side..... God's Angels are not physical beings....

However, I'm with you in thinking that we very well could be seeing the "End Times"...... we'll just have to wait & find out.

i hope you get your desired fate...

& i will be relieved when the believers & faithful are finally raptured...
then the other pagans, non-believers like myself, can actually
get some peace & quite as the opposing religious ideologies
won't be around creating havoc & strife towards the other faiths,
in the name of their own g0d.

Its kinda scary, cause if you read the Islamic signs for the end of the world, it too are starting to mirror current events :s

www.islaam.org...



A. The occurences before the Major Signs:

GENOCIDE
A man from Abu Sufyaan’s progeny massacres descendents of Nabi (S.A.W) and rules over Syria and Egypt.

WAR
A major war between Muslims and Christians: Half the Christian army will sign a peace treaty with the Muslim army, while the second half of the Christian army remains the common enemy.

ISTANBUL CONQUERED BY CHRISTIANS
The enemy half of the Christian army conquers Constantinople (Istanbul), Turkey.

ISTANBUL RECONQUERED JOINTLY BY MUSLIM AND CHRISTIANS
The Muslims and the good half of the Christian army conquer Constantinople together, against the enemy Christians. Thereafter, a Christian will say the victory was due to the cross, and the Muslim will say it was due to Islam. A battle between both sides will ensue, and the Muslim Ruler will be martyred.

SYRIA CONQUERED BY CHRISTIANS
The two Christian armies reunite, conquering Syria.

CHRISTIAN DOMINATION
Christians dominate the world up to Khaiber (near Madinah), and they will pursue Muslims with 80 flags, with 12,000 men under each flag.

MUSLIMS AWAIT Imaam Mahdi

TOTAL ECLIPSE
A total eclipse of the sun and moon will occur in Ramadhaan, prior to Imaam Mahdi’s emergence.

IMAAM MAHDI EMERGES
At age 40, Imam Mahdi appears in Makkah, then flees to Madinah.


these ones, below are the minor signs



* When it will be regarded as a shame to act on Quranic injunctions.
* When untrustworthy people will be regarded as trustworthy and the trustworthy will be regarded as untrustworthy.
* When it will be hot in winter (and vice versa).
* When the length of days is stretched, i.e. a journey of a few days is covered in a matter of hours.
* When orators and lecturers lie openly.
* When people dispute over petty issues.
* When women with children come displeased on account of them bearing offspring, and barren women remain happy on account of having no responsibility of offspring.
* When oppression, jealousy, and greed become the order of the day.
* When people blatantly follow their passions and whims.
* When lies prevail over the truth.
* When violence, bloodshed and anarchy become common.
* When immorality overtakes shamelessness and is perpetrated publicly.
* When legislation matters pertaining to Deen is handed over to the worst elements of the Ummat, and if people accept them and are satisfied with their findings, then such persons will not smell the fragrance of Jannat.
* When the offspring become a cause of grief and anger (for their parents).

The ''End of Times'' were seen as far back of the time of the Apostles.....many prepared for the end of the world then.
The Apostles prepared themselves for the end because they so wanted to be with Christ....and thought that He was coming soon to receive them.

if we were to really listen to what scripture says, then we all would know that ALL will have an END,and when that takes place, is not known to man.
We shall all die .....experience DEATH.
Scripture mentions that the Lord will return, but not as a Servant of Man, but as a Judge!


Prophet Habbakuk: Yet a very little while and He that cometh shall come and shall not tarry. In Phillipians (4:5): Rejoice in the Lord always, for the Lord is at hand. St. John mentions in I John 2:18: Little children, it is the last hour.
And at the end of the Apocalypse, Christ Himself says, Lo, I come quickly. Amen.


And thrice blessed is he “who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near…” (Revelation 1.3).


Yes, there are many signs pointing to a gloomy future,but of that day no man knows.
Then there will be various signs, such as wars, famines, earthquakes, and all these are not the end but rather the beginning of the tribulations.....

And as for being saved on some distant planet or teleported there...there is no MENTION of this in the scriptures!

What many should be doing is preparing that we do not get deceived by all the happenings in the world, that we forget God.

the Lord says: I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive (John 5.43).

I guess we should all be praying for each other, and try being alot nicer to all people ....for who are we to place judgement!

The Kingdom of Heaven has ALWAYS been near.
It is closer than you think. It is within us all.
It is located in Love.
When we as a society can tap into that truly, you will see Heaven on Earth.
There is no taking us from this Planet, this planet, under rule of Love, Honour and Decency WOULD be Heavem.

As quoted in a famous movie " Put anything on a long enough timeline and it WILL fall off"

The end WILL happen. I am doing what I can to prepare for IF it dosn't. The way i see it is if i sit around waiting for a savior and he dosn't come will i still be prepared to deal with life and my decisions based on something that never happened?

NO.

So i choose to live hopingonly for change. IF god exists he gave us free will for a reason. There have also been many different gods though out different cultures and regions in time. Everyone who believes they are right about who or what rules over us will be in some way wrong.

My other big issue with reading scriptures is:
A: you don't have all the omited inforamtion (stuff that was burned, destroyed or just kept out of the hands of the public)
B: Faith while powerful for healing, can also leave you very blindsighted.
C: as per the religion you read this from there is only one true phrophet, yet many different interpretations in many different translated languages.

So this brings us back to Is the world going to end? The answer is yes. Read the starting quote of this passage. But remember to live life to its fullest and stay open minded. After all, everyone has been wrong at least once in the eyes of someone else.

Well i agree and disagree with some of you..i think there are two kingdoms of god...one is the spiritual aka the soul and the other is the physical kingdom which is called Nibiru...now if you have a hard time believing in et's then this thread is not intended for you..but for those of you who keep an open mind to such things will understand ..that et's have a strong roll in everything that has and is and will occur on earth...if you dont know by know \NASA and other government programs are controlled behind the scenes by the reptillans and greys aka satan and his angels...they know these prohecys have been fortold to happen..but they dont seem to care because they are the ones in controll for now...but our god's do love us..and thats why..they wont wait around much longer and lets us wipe ourselves out...we cant keep letting history repeat it self...we know we cant change the world ..so lets just change ourselves..we all need to become more aware of why we are heer and were we are going..some hopefully to join god in his kingdom...and others like bush and other corupt world leaders wont see the glory of god..because they were the ones hiding us from him all this time...our government leaders are so cocky they think they can win a physical battle against god..but this isnt war of the worlds and there wont be any tom cruise to save the day...one of satans greatest tricks is to make us believe he's something that cant be seen or defeated which is not true...anyone who has encountered the reptillans has seen the face of the devil...satan doesnt want us to believe that aliens are heer to help us..and so that will be his deception..because once things start really heating up in the middle east[very soon] and all the world will see Nibiru coming[golden planet,very bright]..satan will turn around and tell everyone that evil aliens are coming to attack our earth ..when in reality it will be your own god who is coming to save you from satan...many people will be spared [raptured] because they knew the truth all along ..that et's were our gods in ancient times..and that they have been waiting for enuff of us to fully realize that they must be the key to unlock the door to our futures...those that are left behind will be satans pawns for the nwo...but even that wont last to long..because god's wrath will not be done just yet.

Hi there/
Look, i can understand that you want to get this MESSAGE across to people so that they can be saved, but you are doing this the wrong way!
I was like you a few yrs back.....thinking that i knew what was going to happen..
It does not work like that!
God allows people to get to know Him on their own accord...in their own time,when they are ready!
Tell me, who's ''predictions/prophecies'' are you putting here?
They your own?

God can only save you....no man can.
That's why we look at ourselves firstly, then we cannot go judging others of what they should or should not believe.(I tell this to myself also!)
take care, man.

See this is where you are wrong. God will not save us until we can save ourselves.
Any being that is powerful enough TO save us, will also be highly aware that to save us now is pointless as we will allow ourselves to be taken this way again...and again.
It would be an endless Spiral.
God has given us the greatest tools to fight and grow, its up to us to fight 'Satan', its up to us to grow and it is up to us to win. THEN the Lord will show himself as we will be grown up enough to understand who we are, our place in the Universe and what we have to offer.
If you step in for your Children all the time, they will never mature/develop in their own right.
Anyone who simply awaits Divine Intervention is doing themselves and the World a disservice.

Of-course you need to get up and do something.
Helping yourself in a sense of doing what is needed to do for good rather then bad is a good thing!
God allows things to happen, because we choose to let it happen because of our choices that we make...we'd rather choose the bad ,rather then the good.
We are not PROGRAMMED to behave like robots,God gave us a choice......He will not intervene on man's free will.
While on the other hand, ANGELS have been known to save man, thats why they are called 'messengers of God'...our guardians.
We all have a mind of our own to decide what's right and what is wrong.
We all understand the meaning of good and bad(certain individuals are an exception.)and we know of guilt because our conscience , tells us!

When man cannot aknowledge his mistakes, then how can God help him?
If one does not ask for help, then how can another know to get help or help him?
Remember,Lucifer fell because of pride.
This is also true of man.....he fell because of his own doing after a CHOICE was given to him!
Man was against admitting to God that he made a mistake.....vanity!
famous quote in the ''Devils Advocate''...Al Pacino..Keeanu Reeves
Last quote///Right before the movie ends....

''Vanity, definately, my favourite sin''
Gets them all the time!

The Kingdom of God is near...
and the Ark will be revealed
from heaven.

Soon the leaders of the nations
will try to hide themselves from
the One who sits on the thone.

But it's not as you think.

What is going on right now should get everyone's attention and focus it on God and come to Him through Christ.

The events right now are definitely major. And deception will abound.

Hmm, no the Kingdom of Lucifer is near (on Earth). The Kingdom of Jesus Christ is at least seven years down the road, IF this is indeed the start.

Folks read Isaiah chapter 17 about the destruction of Damascus (v1). As soon as Syria gets in the middle of this mess, that could easily happen. Note in chapter 17 the harvest that takes place "In that day" (v4-5).

All the stiff-necked people need to know is that Jesus Christ is the only way out. Won't be a guarantee for their earthly life but their eternal life is guaranteed.

When the bride is taken out of the way, if that doesn't open all these Atheistic, Scientific, New Age, Luciferian, “every other way but the only way”, eyes, nothing will.

I hope more people will see now rather than having to undergo the Judgments, as I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.

I don't think the Kingdom of God will be another planet. I do think the end is close to being near, but maybe then again maybe its not. I think it is, just because of all the weapons we have now, that we know of atleast. We have nuclear bombs, hydrogen bombs, etc. Those weapons can take a country off the map. So right now its possible to take countrys off the map in a few minutes. What gets me, is our preachers on tv. I don't watch them, but every time I flip the channel and see them they say the end is near, and get ready. Then they say you can find every thing out in this book for $50. To me that is the devil, charging for information they should be giving us for free. Theres nothing to worry about, if you believe in God then you have trust. You don't have to be Christian, Muslim, etc to believe in God, you can have your own image of God. No one knows when the end of times will start, or what will happen. It looks very close to me, just enjoy every day, its a real miracle we are lucky enough to wake up every day to expierence this earth.

Although many do speak of things that they dont really know, this is not our concern.You either watch tv evangelism, or simply do not.
To pay a small fee for a book is not bad, these people have to pay to get the book complete, therefore charging for what they think is a fair price,is not that bad.
Yes, 'prayer' is free.
Being nice is free.
And just living each day on good terms with everyone is free.
We know all this, but somehow we all tend to make the wrong choices.
I guess having faith and making the right desicions in life will be our reward someday.
We may Fall'', but with each Fall, we must find the courage to get up again, and again, and with each Fall, we become stronger.
All is not lost if we have Faith, Hope and Love.....

Thing is, all the arguments about Jesus Christ and his warnings are based from writings, in a book that wasn't written by him, translated numerous times, parts missed out and not counting for human error or bias.
Do i believe Jesus Christ existed, yes.
Do i believe in God, yes.
Do i believe every word that the Bible says, no.
Instead, i choose to believe the sentiment of Love, Honour, Trust and Decency.
I do not believe some ultimate being will be ourt salvation because, to truly accept this, we have to be able to be our own salvation. We can never be that if there is someone telling us he'll do it for us.

The way I see it is:

Right now the minority of people on earth ask or pray for a savior.
Especially people who live under good standards and lots a money they dont need a savior...they are having a good time.

But you cant forget the people in 3rd world coutries that die because of lack of food, water, shelter, and medicine. And what do we do... we look away. There is no love that bounds us toghether anymore...everyone is looking for riches and prosperity for themselves. We are far from love and it looks all nice and good from far but its far from good. We are blinded by money and greed that we have forgotten about our sisters and brothers who die in the name of god for we have forsaken them. This is really sad and makes me sick the way we have become.

When the right time comes around and the world is in a catastrophic stage and plagues, famine, and hunger overtake the planet, the rich and the poor,...then and only then we all shall be praying and asking for a savior and only then he/she/it shall come to us.

until then do what u can do with the power bestowed upon you to help those who are in need.
