So things are moving so fast from a prophecy stage setting and fulfillment stand point that it is hard to keep up. I use to go and pull articles each day and post. I then moved to weekly. And then simply gave up on headlines as their were just so many. I decided today to take another shot at it to see if things were moving as fast as I thought they were. They are.
Below I pulled articles just from the last three days (Dec 4th-6th) and only for three categories and I came up with 75 articles at only one of my sources for headlines. Amazing.
The three topics I included:
Earthquakes / Volcanoes / Extreme Weather
Ezekiel 38 War / Psalm 83 War / Zechariah 12:3
Globalization (One World Government/One World Currency/One World Religion)
These are not minor articles either, these are major events that are currently or will soon occur.
Maranatha Lord, come quickly!
Earthquakes / Volcanos / Extreme Weather
Next year’s “brightest comet in modern times” to be “once in a civilization” event
But that hasn’t dampened enthusiasm for what Astronomy Now is awkwardly calling “a once-in-a-civilisation’s-lifetime” event. The comet expert John E. Bortle is already comparing ISON with the Great Comet of 1680, which, according to contemporary accounts, caused the people of New York’s Manhattan Island to be “overcome with terror at a sight in the heavens such as has seldom greeted human eyes…. In the province of New York a day of fasting and humiliation was appointed, in order that the wrath of God might be assuaged.”
Mystery tremors puzzle experts
Corsicana — Reports of earthquake-like tremors starting Tuesday afternoon and continuing until early Wednesday can’t be confirmed as true earthquakes, but experts can’t say what it is, either. “We started getting calls at 3:09 p.m. (Tuesday),” said Eric Meyers, Navarro County Emergency Coordinator. “The first calls were north of Corsicana in the Hickory Hollow area with two separate residents out there reporting unusual tremors being felt along with a rumbling type of noise.”

Scientists pinpoint great-earthquake hot spots
“We find that 87% of the 15 largest (8.6 magnitude or higher) and half of the 50 largest (8.4 magnitude or higher) earthquakes of the past century are associated with intersection regions between oceanic fracture zones and subduction zones,” says Dietmar Müller, researcher at the University of Sydney in Australia and lead author of the Solid Earth paper. The connection is less striking for smaller earthquakes. Powerful earthquakes related to these intersection regions include the destructive 2011 Tohoku-Oki and 2004 Sumatra events.
Tsunamis, Earthquakes Overdue in Lake Tahoe
A tsunami-producing fault in Lake Tahoe is overdue for another earthquake, scientists said here yesterday (Dec. 4) at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The West Tahoe Fault is capable of producing a magnitude-7.3 earthquake and tsunamis up to 30 feet (10 meters) high in the clear blue lake, where million-dollar homes line the shore, researchers said.
New Map Pinpoints The World’s Biggest Earthquake Zones
Seismologists on Wednesday unveiled a map highlighting zones most prone to unleashing the world’s biggest earthquakes, including the 9.0 monster that struck northeastern Japan in March 2011. These mega-quakes spring mostly from regions where fractures on the sea floor intersect with subduction zones, or zones where one slab of Earth’s crust is diving slowly under another, they said. The evidence is statistical, coming from data from 1,500 earthquakes.
Strong extremely shallow earthquake in Iran kills at least 8 people, 23 injured and a lot of damage
The epicenter of the quake was 25 kilometers (15 miles) from the town of Zohan, at a depth of nine kilometers, the Iranian Seismological Center said on its website. The quake caused damage to rural buildings and cut power lines and telephone communication. Iran has mostly adobe and brick stone houses who have a little or no resistance against earthquakes.
Sandy: Barack Obama ‘to seek $50bn aid from Congress’
US President Barack Obama is expected to ask Congress for about $50bn (£31bn) in extra emergency aid for states hit by Storm Sandy, Democrats have said. The administration is still compiling its request but may ask for between $45bn and $55bn, US media reported. The spending request would be smaller than the $83bn in disaster aid that the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are seeking.

Warm temperatures are causing plants to bloom in December
Plants and trees have begun budding and leafing around southern Colorado, something experts say could be detrimental to their growth during the springtime. “It takes energy from the roots that should be used next spring when the weather does warm up. So they’ve lost some food or energy for next spring,” said Dan Robinson, nursery manager at Spencer’s Lawn & Garden in Colorado Springs.
Earthquake southwest of Trinidad
The USGS says that earthquakes east of the Rocky Mountains, although less frequent than in the West, are typically felt over a much broader region. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area as much as ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast. A magnitude 4.0 eastern U.S. earthquake typically can be felt at many places as far as 60 miles from where it occurred, and it infrequently causes damage near its source.
Scientists Warn Of Major Earthquakes In Himalayas And Pacific Northwest
Scientists at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco this week reported that the Himalayas and Pacific Northwest could experience major earthquakes. Researchers have begun studying the complexity of the Himalayan range in greater detail, particularly the fault that separates the two plates known as the Main Himalayan Thrust (MHT).
Alaska Earthquake Produces Aftershock
Alaska’s largest city experienced another earthquake on Tuesday, but it was not nearly as strong as the one that shook the Anchorage area on Monday and knocked items off shelves. Tuesday’s earthquake had a preliminary magnitude of 3.2 and was felt in Anchorage and the community of Eagle River 10 miles to the north.
‘Black Swan’ Storms: Extreme Cyclones Linked to Warming Seas
A “black swan” cyclone may sound like the latest comic book hero, but this “extreme of the extremes” is the result of climate models that suggest global warming will make future hurricanes more intense. The rare monster tropical cyclones (the term for hurricanes, typhoons and other tropical storms) could inundate coastal areas with storm surges greater than 15 feet (4.6 meters), and could even surpass 30 feet (9 m) in some regions of the world.
Earthquake swarms could indicate eruption near Nisyros, Greece
A seismic swarm of 2000 microearthquakes near the island of Nisyros since 24 November could indicate a start of a or coming of a volcanic eruption near Nisyros. The quakes are located between the area of Simi Island (Greece) and the Bozburun peninsula of SW Turkey.

CDC says US flu season starts early, could be bad
Flu season in the U.S. is off to its earliest start in nearly a decade – and it could be a bad one. Health officials on Monday said suspected flu cases have jumped in five Southern states, and the primary strain circulating tends to make people sicker than other types. It is particularly hard on the elderly.
Ezekiel 38 War / Psalm 83 War / Zechariah 12:3
Netanyahu is leading Israel into an abyss

Syria loads chemical weapons into bombs; military awaits Assad’s order
The military has loaded the precursor chemicals for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said. As recently as Tuesday, officials had said there was as yet no evidence that the process of mixing the “precursor” chemicals had begun. But Wednesday, they said their worst fears had been confirmed: The nerve agents were locked and loaded inside the bombs.

Report: CIA ‘officials’ behind Benghazi talking points
“There appears to be a concerted effort to mislead the American people,” says Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah. “At this point the Obama administration has been elusive at best and misleading at worse.” Chaffetz was responding to a report in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal that CIA “officials” wanted the terrorist origins of the attack kept from the public because the spy agency did not want certain al-Qaeda operatives to know it was monitoring its communications.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
