People get ready!
I remember back in 1988 when there was excitement regarding the rapture of the church based on a biblical 40 year generation, everyone was saying this is it, and Jesus is coming to get us this year!
It seems some time has passed since then and the scriptures continue to give clear evidence that we are living in the final generation that will see Jesus return in all his glory to the earth, judge the nations and we will be with him worshiping him in glory for eternity.
There seems to be some momentum building in regard to a May 2021 rapture date based on the state of Israel turning 80 on 5/14/2028. First let me tell you we don’t set dates here because the rapture can happen at any time!
The dates being floated are based on Israel being brought back into existence officially on May 14, 1948 adding 80 years (The time frame of a biblical generation) and deducting 7 years (The tribulation) and coming up with a 2021 rapture date.
I have a little different take on the dates coming up. First let’s look at Matthew 24: 21, 22 (Remember Jesus was speaking to the Jews in the book of Matthew) this chapter foretells what events will occur during the tribulation to the Jews (After the believers have been raptured).
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Pay particular attention to those days shall be shortened, I bring this up because there is much speculation and biblical evidence that the rapture will be during the fall feast of trumpets, I believe that this is a compete possibility.
This brings some conflicts with a biblical timeline of a 7 year tribulation ending within the 80 year generation of May 14, 2028, my interpretation is that if the rapture were to happen as late as the fall of 2021 the full 7 year tribulation would not be complete and would not fulfill the parable of the fig tree.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
For those of you who don’t know, the fig tree refers to the state of Israel returning to its land as foretold by the prophets thus restarting the time clock to the end of days and moving closer to the final week of Danial’s 70 weeks (Otherwise known as the tribulation).
This is why the phrase those days shall be shortened are so important to keep in mind. God has his own timeline, when these things have been fulfilled that’s when Jesus will step his foot on the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4) and everything will proceed as written in the book of Revelation.
The take away
The rapture can occur at any time, if you haven’t already giving you heart to Jesus take action today, time is short, you are not guaranteed your next breath. I’m not telling you to get religious, here’s how to accept Jesus as your lord and savior.
A – ADMIT THAT YOU’RE A SINNER
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one / 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
B – BELIEVE THAT JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. / 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
C – CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. / 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Rev 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Should I be surprised if the rapture doesn’t occur in September of 2015?
In a word – no, but please let me explain.
First, the return of Jesus Christ is imminent; it can happen at any time. As no doubt you have heard or read there is a lot of speculation as to when this may occur. (Date / time period setters as it were).
Blood Moon fever, the Shemittah (Shmita) and economic doom, Jewish feast dates and a whole host of other reasons as to why we should expect it to happen this very September 2015.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Fear mongers try their best to scare the people into believing the world is coming into a catastrophic and imitate end. “Buy this book or DVD series, watch me daily on YouTube to see why I think this is about to happen”; all with little or no biblical basis for any of the fear.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:6 “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
One thing that is really troubling for me personally is some end times preachers who are based in the United States of America seem to think everything that happens within the USA is somehow related to the final end time events. Earthquakes, sink holes, dead wildlife, stock market meltdown, Jade Helm, etc.
As you may have noticed the USA is not mentioned anywhere in the bible and some even try to allude to its existence using various scriptures. This is a whole other story that we can explore at another time.
The bottom line is you really need to focus on what the bible says and not what people try to imply it says.
So what do I think is going to happen? I believe based on some things I have read* that we have at the very least another seven years to live through before the rapture and the great tribulation.
Those years are going to be increasingly hard for any Christian living anywhere on the planet to live through. It will be tougher and tougher to think we aren’t in the tribulation and we will see more persecution of believers.
3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. 5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. 6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? 7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
I believe we will see increasing degrees of persecution, and the developing Psalm 83 wars before the rapture. Please don’t be fooled or discouraged when you see these things come to pass in the world. It’s going to be a wild ride and just when you think things can’t get any worse…. They will!
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Don’t lose hope…..
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
So if the rapture doesn’t occur during September 2015, stay solid in the faith and pray with me “Come quickly Lord Jesus”
This story is a sad commentary on the state of affairs in our world and the coming 666 mark of the beast system. Due in part to stories like this everyone will believe getting a chip implanted will be a wonderful thing to do when supporting the anti-Christ and his one world government.
Here’s why I implanted an NFC chip in my hand
By Robert J Nelson on 21 Oct 2014 12:42 pm
I have recently taken a deeper step into the connected world. A step that some will describe as being interesting, and that some will describe as being crazy. To be honest, as happy as I am since I have taken this step, I have to admit that I fall on both the interesting and crazy sides myself. Before getting any further, I should mention that the “step” I took was implanting an NFC chip in my hand.
The chip was implanted in my left hand and sits between my thumb and pointer finger. Surprisingly — or thanks to the internet not so surprisingly — a kit that included all the necessary gear was easy to purchase. I made the purchase through a company called Dangerous Things, and for those curious — I paid $99 for a 13.56MHz ISO14443A & NFC Type 2 NTAG216 RFID chipset that is encased in a 2x12mm cylindrical biocompatible glass casing. Essentially that means the chip is safe to implant, and that it will work with all NFC compliant reader/writer devices. That includes USB devices as well as NFC capable mobile phones. This chip is pre-loaded in an injection syringe assembly, and while I wouldn’t trust (or suggest you trust) just anyone to do the procedure, I will say the process was quick, easy — and despite the large size of the needle — relatively painless.
And for reference, aside from the chip and injection syringe, the remaining items in the kit are medical related (gloves and such). Another personal reason for choosing Dangerous Things was the background on the company. The founder, Amal Graafstra, has been doing this for roughly a decade, and even nicer for those looking to get this done — there is solid documentation offered which may really help make this a reality for some.
On becoming a cyborg
I should make it clear that I am not trying to become a cyborg or anything like that. For me, getting this implant came down to having a strong interest in technology and the connected space, and more to the point is that I am someone who likes seeing technology integrated into life. Or in this case, my body. Along with not considering myself a cyborg, I do not feel comfortable using another common term here, biohacker. I basically think of this implant as another form of wearable, albeit, a semi-permanent form of wearable. Along with my interest in technology, I also have a strong interest in body modification and tattoos.
For me, getting this chip implanted seemed a good way to bridge those interests. And while I realize getting an NFC chip implanted in your hand is not common, I have to mention how hard it was to find people in the piercing and body modification industry (at least locally) that were interested in performing this procedure. Of course, that could also be due to their lack of interest in technology, or maybe due to them not knowing me personally. Putting that aside, how about we get more into my thought process in the lead up to the implant.
Leading up to the implant
It would be hard for me to recommend this procedure to many people. In fact, I would describe this as a procedure that should be given considerable thought. I had been reading about similar procedures for several years, and had been strongly considering it myself for a little more than a year. In the past, I had put it off due to not wanting to do the research. There was also the case of getting the necessary hardware and the somewhat limited use potential. Well, I finally did the research and that lead me to Dangerous Things — who as mentioned earlier — offer a kit with everything you need. As for the limited use potential, we’ll get into that more in a bit, but I can say that will come down to how much you are willing to spend, and to how much you are willing and able to build.
Implanting the Chip
I mentioned this isn’t a procedure that just anyone should get done, but actually finding someone willing to implant the chip took some effort. As I found, not everyone is going to be willing to implant an NFC chip in your hand. In my case I ended up getting the procedure done by a friend of a friend. And to clarify, that friend of a friend is a medical professional. They had never implanted an NFC chip, however they have been in the medical profession for many years. Furthermore, said medical professional was also very happy to read the documentation provided by the folks at *Dangerous Things. To that point, that documentation also made things much more comfortable for me. Bottom line here, once you come to a decision to get this done, make sure you have someone you can really trust.
Assuming you find someone willing and able, the actual process of implanting the chip is easy. As I said earlier, it was quick, easy, and relatively painless. Setting up the work area and cleaning my hand took much longer than the actual needle stick. The needle is large and the person getting the chip implanted can expect to feel the initial stick, a push (to get the needle in deeper), a bit of a pull back (of the needle), and then the deposit of the chip which is followed by the removal of the needle. And as you may have noticed in some of the images, there was a bit of blood. Overall pretty simple — that is provided you found someone comfortable and capable of doing the procedure.
There really isn’t much to the healing process. The needle is likely the biggest needle you’ve seen or been stuck with, but it is just that — a needle stick. That means there isn’t any cutting or stitches involved. Essentially, you’ll just have a red mark where the needle was inserted. This mark will heal up, and in my case, a month later I can only see a faint mark on my skin. You will also be able to feel the chip under your skin.
Aside from making sure your hand is clean before the stick and the site is kept clean afterward during the healing process, the main thing you want to keep in mind is to take it easy during the first few weeks. The folks at Dangerous Things suggest not messing with the tag, or pressing on the tag, and light use of your hand for the first two weeks. I followed those suggestions myself and things healed nicely and without issue.
That brings another point to consider. I’ve already mentioned putting serious thought in before getting this done, and also making sure you find someone you trust to do the procedure, however you should also consider what happens if things go bad. In my case, having a medical professional (friend of a friend) do the procedure would not have mattered much if it got infected afterward due to my lack of care. Basically, had things gone bad and I needed the chip removed — that could have created a rather awkward situation (with uncomfortable questions) if I had to go to a doctors office or emergency room.
Putting the Chip to Use
Up until this point I have been using my chip to secure my phone. Pretty boring and basic, but I had a reason for that. First though, I am currently using a 2013 Moto X, and have the chip programmed as a Motorola Skip. I also tested, and would suggest those without a Moto X use the NFC Secure Unlock app which is available from the Google Play Store.
I decided to keep the use simple and limited to securing my phone initially to keep costs down. This meant I could buy the chip kit (for $99) and spend no additional money until I knew there wasn’t going to be any issues. Now that the chip has been in and has fully healed, I am exploring other options. I’ve been considering a few options including opening my garage door, unlocking my front door, or unlocking my car. The catch here is that I am happy having my phone secured using the chip, and will likely implant another chip in my right hand for whatever I want to control (open or unlock) next. The fact that I am willing to get another chip implanted should speak to how easy the procedure was.
Actually, the why is the hardest part to answer. And to be perfectly honest I am not sure I have a good answer. My best response would be to satisfy my curiosity. I also wouldn’t suggest anyone get an implant just for this, but showing people how I can unlock my phone has turned into somewhat of a fun trick.
We don’t condone or encourage anyone to get an NFC implant, and take no responsibility if you do. Be sure to think it through and know what you’re getting into should you choose to do so.
VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) — A satellite designed to produce high-resolution images of Earth from space was launched Wednesday from a military base on California’s Central Coast.
The commercial satellite known as Worldview-3 was sent into space atop an Atlas 5 rocket on a clear day from Vandenberg Air Force Base, military and company officials said.
Worldview-3 belongs to Longmont, Colorado-based DigitalGlobe and was built by Boulder-based Ball Aerospace. Lockheed Martin and the United Launch Alliance are also partners in the $500 million project.
DigitalGlobe says the satellite will be able to capture images of objects as small as 1-foot across, but government regulations prevent selling images with resolution finer than required for an object of about 20 inches.
“From 400 miles we can see home plate of a baseball stadium,” said DigitalGlobe Vice President for Technology Neal Anderson.
DigitalGlobe is hoping for federal approval to sell higher-resolution images, Walter Scott, founder and chief technical officer of the Longmont-based company, said when the satellite was undergoing its final tests in May.
The best resolution for the company’s five satellites already in orbit is about 16 inches, Scott said.
The company provides images for government and private customers, including national security and defense agencies, NASA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and civil emergency responders.
The 18-foot-long, 8-foot-wide satellite has a design life of seven years, but satellites often last about twice as long as their design life, Ball Aerospace said.

If the Gaza truce holds and Israel’s Operation Protective Edge comes to its conclusion, some things are certain.
Both Israel and Hamas will declare military victory — Israel pointing to the destruction of militants’ tunnels and depletion of Hamas’ rocket supply; Hamas pointing to dozens of dead Israeli troops and the survival of Hamas leadership in Gaza.
But unlike in previous conflicts, when Hamas had the support of many Arab nations, things have changed. This time, as CNN has reported, the fighting between Israel and Hamas has been a proxy war for the Mideast.
Key regional players Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia have their own reasons to want to fend off the Muslim Brotherhood, of which Hamas is part, experts say. And Europe, like the United States, lists Hamas as a terrorist organization for its numerous attacks on civilians.
But the group does have the support of some countries.
“It’s no longer the Muslims against the Jews,” said Danielle Pletka, vice president of foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute. “Now it’s the extremists — the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, and their backers Iran, Qatar and Turkey — against Israel and the more moderate Muslims including Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.”
A look at some key Hamas supporters:
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan openly supports Hamas.
“Erdogan has tried to use the cause of the Brotherhood to bolster his own Islamist credentials at home,” says Eric Trager, of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Turkey also has “more of an ideological sympathy with the Brotherhood,” Trager says.
Qatar supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt — which was toppled from power in a coup last year. Qatar funds many Muslim Brotherhood figures in exile, including Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal, who is believed to have orchestrated numerous terrorist attacks.
“Qatar has a long history of providing shelter to Islamist groups, amongst them the Muslim Brotherhood and the Taliban,” Shashank Joshi of the Royal United Services Institute tells Time.
Advocating for Hamas is beneficial to Turkey and Qatar in their political objectives because the cause draws popular support at home, says world affairs writer Frida Ghitis in a CNN.com column.
But some question whether Qatar’s support still is for Hamas is still strong. The country’s financial support to the group “largely dried up” as Qatar sought “to mend ties with its neighbors, with whom it had fallen out in part for backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt,” the Council on Foreign Relations said.
While Qatar and Turkey are powerful allies, “Hamas might wish for more support given the breadth of the Arab world,” Time reported.
Iran and Syria
In the past, Iran and Syria supported Hamas. Iran supplied the group with weapons; Syria was home to Meshaal.
But Meshaal did not support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s civil war. In 2012, Meshaal left for Qatar, causing a breakdown in his relationship with both Syria and its ally Iran, says Firas Abi Ali, head of Middle East and North Africa Country Risk and Forecasting at the global information company IHS.
And while Iran still professes to support Hamas, such claims “are more ostentatious, showy, exaggerated and theatrical rather than genuine and practical,” writes Majid Rafizadeh, an Iranian-American scholar at Harvard University, in a column for al Arabiya.
Iran, which is a Muslim but not an Arab nation, “uses Hamas (as well as Tehran’s support for the Palestinian cause) as a tool to project its power and influence in the Arab world,” he argues.
The Council on Foreign Relations says Iran, while cutting its funding to Hamas in recent years, “sought to bolster its ties to other resistance groups in the region, such as Islamic Jihad.”
The Lebanese militant group based in Lebanon is aligned with al-Assad’s regime in Syria. During the conflict, Hezbollah reached out to Hamas, praising its “steadfastness.”
This does not mean the relationship is repaired to where it stood before Syria’s civil war, but “a new realignment might happen,” Farwaz Gerges of the London School of Economics told Time.
Hamas’ greatest support in the wake of the conflict with Israel may be from the public in Gaza and other parts of the Arab world.
“Hamas is not a monolith, nor is it only a terrorist group,” Ed Husain of the Council on Foreign Relations writes on CNN.com. “It is a social movement, with a mass membership, a popular message of resistance that resonates across the Muslim world, and a political party with which we must negotiate.”
Some analysts believe Hamas will emerge stronger from the fight with Israel. The conflict “will only further radicalize the Palestinian population — and alienate frustrated friends in the United States,” Mark Perry of Foreign Policy argues.
Before Operation Protective Edge, a poll by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy found that most Palestinians in Gaza oppose a two-state solution and want to work toward abolishing Israel — a goal that is in line with Hamas’ charter.
But the poll also found most Palestinians support nonviolent methods of achieving their goals.
Support could affect arms supply
While Hamas’ recruitment might soar now, militarily the group “is on the ropes,” with tunnels destroyed and much of its rocket supply depleted, writes Rick Francona, retired U.S. Air Force intelligence officer and CNN military analyst.
“After similar conflicts in the past, Hamas has been rearmed and resupplied by its supporters, primarily Iran and to some extent Syria. The most efficient method for the rearming and resupply effort has been via the large number of smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
“That is not likely to be the case this time — another blow to Hamas, which it must factor in to its assessment of this conflict as well as its future planning.”
An Israeli official says the Tel Aviv regime is considering replacing the al-Aqsa Mosque in al-Quds (Jerusalem) with a temple.
Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel on Friday called for the construction of what he called “the Third Temple” to replace the holy site.
Ariel says the first and the second temples were destroyed many years ago, so the third one needs to be built now.
“Al-Aqsa Mosque is currently in place of the temple,” he claimed.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is considered the third holiest site in the Muslim world.
Palestinians have denounced the plan as desecration.
They say it is part of the Israeli regime’s ongoing attempts to distort the Arab and Islamic history.
Palestinians argue that al-Quds is the capital of a future Palestinian independent state, and that its heritage should remain intact.
