India Now Boasts The World’s Tallest Statue, And It’s Twice Lady Liberty’s Size


Note the world's tallest statue almost 600 ft. tall. We think of 666. See Daniel 3: Note this statue was 60 cubits or about 90 feet high and 6 cubits wide or about 9 feet wide. But in cubits then it was 66. We read in Rev.13 the antichrist has a crew to make and set up a statue of himself and demands worship,etc. It seems to be a weakness in mankind to create statues of gods or human beings of note. Just as the king in Dan.3 had a statue made and demanded others fall down to pay it homage so does antichrist.

Getting the world prepared for when antichrist or the world leader has own statue set up. Revelation 13 indicates the whole world will see, hear and know about his image or statue; so this indicates inspired divine prescience predicting the worldwide electronic satellite age when any area of earth can be seen on television.

Remember this book was written some 2,000 years ago and down through the years many have mocked and laughed saying how could the whole world see and know about one statue or see two men (Rev.11: 1-13 esp.7-11) all at the same time in Jerusalem and it has not been that long since man has had this capability to see all of the earth by satellites and transmitted to earth. 
Daniel predicted thousands of years ago in the last days knowledge would be ‘very sharply’ increased. Heb. He said many would ‘rush at great speeds’ (Heb.) going here and there all over where they live and the world. Jet travel, and even cars going at speeds of 80 MPH or more [in L.A. it’s “more” ! ) all of which was unheard of in Daniel’s time! 
The proposed Hyperloop will take passengers going over 760 miles MPH to various cities. From L.A. to San Francisco (381.9 mi 6 h 15 min) for example, it would take some 35 minutes! Daniel 12:4

The Closest Exoplanet to Earth Could Be "Highly Habitable"

We know when God created the universe all planets were perfect beautiful free of erratic topographical anomalies such as craters, volcanoes, jagged mountainous regions,etc.
We do not know how old the universe is. All is educated guess work based on present day methodologies*, but in 20 years our methods and means of dating could and will radically change as new discoveries in the sciences progress. The Bible does not inform us how old it is, but does indicate using genealogical means that man was created about 6,000 years ago. *Dates and times keep shrinking. DNA discoveries are challenging how old is mankind. We have just begun.

But, what really matters is we are here and responsible to our -as the Hebrew says Creators pl. (Eccl.12:1) Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

This newly discovered planet Proxima Centauri b seems to prove the point, but was still affected by the water mass: Gen.1:2 ("deep" Heb. is "raging waters”); ll Peter3: 4-7 , that enveloped the planets leaving it and them as seen today through the space telescope and space vehicle passes.

Israel launches heavy Syria strikes after F-16 crashes
We can see from these latest developments how an alignment of anti-Israeli nations – at the time of this end time invasion as some nations may have good relations with Israel today but turn against the nation of Israel in the future. For example, Germany (or “Gomer ” in Ez. 38:6 a) attacking Israel with other countries (Ez.38:5-6) seems impossible now, but we don’t know what will develop in the future. It is easy to understand Iran as it stands now would join in an attack on Israel as the present leadership has made such volatile public threats with many there shouting, “Death to Israel.”  There could be a resolution of negative relations between both countries for a time, but we are talking about the future as presented by the inspired prophet Ezekiel. History teaches us anything can happen between countries and at any time.

In these “last days “God is bringing everything into fulfillment. Remember God is in control- not the nations. The great all-powerful Lord “laughs” at the nations in their attempt in the last days to stand against Him and the Messiah. See Psalm 2.

Israel launched its most intensive air strikes yet against Iranian forces in Syria on Saturday after intercepting what it said was an Iranian drone and the rare downing of an Israeli F-16 warplane. Read the full story


*Below our 2015 article on the future Russian invasion of Israel. Ezekiel 38-39

In a surprise meeting Israel and Russia(the land of “magog”) conjured up a “deal” to guard against any misunderstanding between Russia and Israel if Israel attacks supply ships bound to bring weapons to Hamas via Syria to be employed against Israel. The main reason for this meeting is because Russia in a surprise move to our intelligence community has moved weapons and personnel into Syria! If Israel fighters miss their targets and kill Russian personnel this could be a grave situation for both countries.

As we have had lessons in Ezekiel 38-39 on the coming attack that will be spearheaded by Russia against Israel and it’s then allies some of whom are Libya; Iran, Ethiopia,  and other countries; this Russian situation in Syria could be one of the reasons for Russia to attack Israel.  For example,if Israeli fighters miscalculated and many Russians were killed in an attack this could be a pretext for an attack on Israel.
Of course, the invasion by land ( 38 :4;8;11;12;15) and air (“You [Russia/allied troops] will ascend ,coming like a storm ,covering the land like a cloud …” 38: 9;16)  that Ezekiel 38: 4-8 says could be initiated by any number of reasons that could and will transpire in the future. We don’t know what provokes the attack.
But the real reason based on ‘reap and sow’ in Russia  is their own desire to attack so God through the prophet says, “I will turn you [Russia/allied armies] around ,put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out with all your army…from the far north…in the latter years…” The result is very devastating for these armies. Ez.38:19-22;39:1- 20
When this attack happens is conjecture. We do have a “great earthquake” in Ez.38:19 that affects the whole earth which seems like the one in Revelation 16:18; 20, 21. Compare them. Note: “hailstones” are  mentioned in Ez.38: 22 and they are mentioned in Rev.16:21. Also note ‘every wall and building’  ‘falls down,’ and ‘mountains are moved’ or “were not found “as we find in Rev.16:19, 20.  See Ez.39:17-20,and compare to Rev.19:17,18.  This is the last half of the seven year great Tribulation period.


New quake shakes Taiwan's Hualien
“And there will be...earthquakes in various places. “The Son of God Matthew 24:7b


”...and there was a great earthquake ,such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since people were on the earth...Now the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nation’s fell...Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.”
This massive intercontinental earthquake occurs  around the end of the tribulation period which is seven years long. 
The earth in Genesis was one continent and there was one ocean when man was created. During the days after the great Flood of Noah in Peleg’s time (whose name was prophetic and means divided) was this great single continent broken up. Genesis 10:25 The great oceans were then created by this stupendous event. This was predicted in Gen.1:9-10. Elohim created one ocean, yet its plural Hebrew meaning is that there would be several oceans in the future. 
Science has in only the last few years discovered there was one continent and a single ocean, but the Bible already stated this for thousands of years!

Paul writes that this earth and the whole creation or the universe “... groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.” Hence, we have earthquakes, but during the tribulation even the heavens or creation will erupt as seen in Revelation. Romans 8: 19-23

Great Synagogue of Jerusalem
This is the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem the largest in the world. We know that the antichrist will sit in the temple in Jerusalem (2 Thessalonians 2:4) Please read the entire chapter for context. 

We also know during the time of the two Witnesses or the first 3.5 years of the seven-year tribulation period it mentions the temple (Revelation 11:1). Read verses 2-19. This temple in Revelation 11 exists before the Rapture. So many believers and, of course Jewish people look forward to a fulfillment of a ‘new’ temple. My question is do they convert the great synagogue into a new temple?  Click on Google; inside photos of the great synagogue in Jerusalem. This could be where the antichrist sits as “God” in a new Holy Place in this great synagogue.
