Multiplying Signs

Source: Art Sadlier, Tuesday November 1st 2011

For some years now I have spent much time each day examining the news that relates to end time events. In the last month or so the number of such items has grown exponentially. I am overwhelmed by the rush of indications that the Day of the Lord is at hand.

In this article I will try to touch on some recent such items.

In the spiritual world the signs are multiplying.

As the world’s moral free fall continues we discover that pedophiles are pushing for the same acceptance that homosexuals have obtained. They are being supported by some people in high places.

Some are arguing that legalization of homosexual marriage is the gateway to legalising polygamous marriage.

In a move to impose homosexuality around the globe, David Cameron has threatened to withhold UK aid from governments which do not reform legislation banning homosexuality. The world is obsessed with this drive to impose homosexuality; it is an attack on God’s Word.

First Lady Michelle Obama said recently that the government can affect who kids “will be forever” if it can shape their "habits and preferences" during the large part of the day they are at school. That is the pathway of socialism, the breakup of all parental influence and the death knell of Christianity. It seems that Americans closed their eyes one night and woke up the next day on the verge of a godless socialist state.

A Judge says prayers to Christ “Do violence to America’s pluralistic, inclusive society and that prayers in Jesus name are unconstitutional. Judge James Harvie Wilkinson III in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled legislative invocations offered in Jesus' name are inherently "sectarian" and thus should be censored lest they make some attendees feel "uncomfortable, unwelcome and unwilling to participate in … public affairs." 

A California law recently went into effect that bans minors, defined as anyone under the age of 18, from using a tanning bed. The prohibition is absolute and there is no provision for parental permission. Lawmakers say the tan ban is necessary in order to protect the health and well-being of young people.

By way of contrast California allows a girl under the age of 18 to obtain an abortion without her parents' permission -- and without even notifying them. Additionally, the facility that provides the abortion is forbidden by law from informing the parents about the abortion.

California claims to be interested in the health of teenagers and yet promotes abortion which is fraught with dangerous consequences, both psychological and physical, and is fatal to the baby. Everywhere we look we see the consequences of darkened minds.

The push toward a world church and a world government continues. The Vatican called Monday for radical reform of the world's financial systems, including the creation of a global political authority to manage the economy. This is a call for world government, a call for a world-wide socialist system. We can clearly see the woman preparing to ride the beast.

The pope is also sowing the seeds for a world Church. Pope Benedict XVI has invited 300 religious leaders to a meeting in Assisi in Italy to repudiate “violence in the name of God” amid growing tensions fuelled by fundamentalists across the world. They will be joined by Rabbis, Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, a Zoroastrian, a Baha’i and representatives of Taoism and Confucianism as well as of other traditional religions from Africa and America.

In the physical world the signs are also multiplying.

On November 8 a huge asteroid will pass by the earth inside the orbit of the moon. This space rock is asteroid 2005 YU55, a veritable mini-world roughly 1,300 feet (400 meters) wide — nearly four football fields across. This gives new meaning to the term “signs in the sky.”

Floods in Thailand and wider Southeast Asia have destroyed have destroyed millions of tons of rice and flooded rice paddies, creating a potential global shortfall.

Another news item stated that, “Countless times over the last several months unusual storms have been occurring across the World and the United States. While no single storm can be blamed on climate change or global warming, it is apparent that the overall climate on Earth is changing quite drastically.” Some scientists are telling us the earth is entering a period of the cooling off. It is not global warming but God’s warning. The news item continued, “Stronger than average earthquakes are occurring literally every day and scores of volcanoes are stewing, waiting to blow their top.”

In the US, Muslims say crosses at a Catholic University Violate “Human Rights.” Meanwhile in Muslim countries Christianity is banned and Christians are being slaughtered.

WND reports that American court cases are being decided by edicts from Muhammad. Islamic law, or Sharia, is already being applied in the U.S. court system, according to an extensive new report.

In Europe and in Britain there are sections of cities that are designated no go zones for non-Muslims. These areas are under sharia law and are virtual Islamic states.

Every day, in dozens of ways, we are seeing the stage being set for the coming tribulation period. The trickle of end time signs has become a tidal wave and yet the eyes of many are blinded to it all.
