However, one newly recognized factor in the conflict is that millions of Muslims believe their messiah – the Mahdi or Twelfth Prophet – is about to appear to rule the world as the final imam. He will be accompanied by Jesus Christ, who will help the Mahdi overcome the false messiah, Dajjal.
Some Bible prophecy types think the Mahdi will arrive with Planet X or in a spaceship accompanying Comet ISON. I’m not endorsing – just reporting.
Today, with nanotechnology, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips, facial recognition and dozens of other new tracking and identification devices, the Antichrist can take his pick of how to brand people.
Rumors abound – most of them disproven – that US military personnel are implanted with RFID chips, that Obamacare will require participants to have an RFID implant, and that children in some school districts have been chipped without their parents’ knowledge.
These things may not have happened yet, but everything is in place to make forced identity implants a possibility. We conspiracy nuts believe that eventually the New World Order, headed by the Antichrist, will establish a cashless global financial system that utilizes implants, tattoos or other devices embedded in every human’s forehead and/or wrist. (Google has filed a patent for an “electronic skin tattoo” which can be applied to a person’s throat as a communication device. It may also have potential as a lie detector, according to the patent application.)
Mankind just can’t help itself. The human race continues to believe that because something CAN be done, it SHOULD be done. Scientists even now are inventing ways to blend technology and biology, creating hybrid humans who combine flesh and blood with artificial intelligence. Proponents say this kind of innovation will eventually eliminate disease and even death.
Unfortunately, humans have a tendency to twist scientific discoveries into weapons of our own destruction. For instance, look at all the wonderful things that have come about as a result of nuclear energy, such as atom bombs and the disasters of Chernobyl and Fukushima.
If God stopped the building of the Tower of Babel because “nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them”, how do you think He feels about our efforts at, for instance, genetic manipulation and carrying our human sickness into outer space?
Today the term is used to describe an incident manufactured by “the powers that be” to bring about a desired reaction. For instance, many people believe that 9/11 was engineered not by Muslim fanatics but by our own government in order to draw the United States into war with Iraq and set the stage for events that will lead to a one-world government.
Others maintain that shooting massacres such as those that occurred at Sandy Hook and Los Angeles International Airport were false flag operations intended to convince Americans of the need for firearm confiscation. Likewise, some conspiracy theorists say the Boston Marathon bombing was instigated by the Department of Homeland Security and the CIA to persuade us that we need more surveillance, more wiretaps, less privacy and less freedom, and to prepare us for martial law.
False flags have also been used to divert attention from real crises that might undermine efforts toward a one world government. The “manmade global warming” scam is an ongoing false flag whose main purpose is to bolster the idea that we need a New World Order to regulate the activities of everyone on the planet.
(For a good examination of the various methods and signs of a false flag operation, go to http://www.activistpost.com/2013/11/11-signs-of-false-flag.html ) .
At this moment, Obama needs something drastic to take attention away from the planned disaster that is Obamacare, as well as the collapsing economy that is fast destroying the middle class. Expect a major catastrophe, “terrorist attack” or war very soon.
(I am reluctant to mention the possibility of an assassination or attempted assassination of the president, particularly given the fact that the NSA is monitoring the Internet, looking for word combinations such as “assassination” and “president”. However, Obama may have become a liability for the shadow government. His murder or attempted murder could very well lead to martial law and/or civil war. “They” created the fraud that is Barack Obama, and they may decide he is more valuable as a martyr than as a puppet.)
So these are just a few reasons we conspiracy/Bible
prophecy nuts think the end is near, at least for life
as we know it. I haven’t even touched on the topics
of the death of our planet (the Gulf Oil spill, the
Fukushima radiation disaster, the depletion of the
honey bee population, etc.), worldwide persecution
of Christians and the criminalization of Christian
beliefs in America (i.e. opposition to homosexual
marriage), or the consolidation of money and power
by the Bilderberg group.
I definitely believe that America is on the brink of catastrophe. Good has become evil and evil has become good (Isaiah 5:20). People who call themselves Christians chase after materialism and treat church as a one-hour-per-week obligation rather than as a body of believers loving one another and glorifying Christ. Non-Christians increasingly see Christians as the enemy, a bunch of kill-joys and haters who believe in a concept called “sin” and a fictional Magic Man in the Sky.
