“Signs of the times—Matt. 16:3”
“Nevada Woman Dies of Superbug Resistant to every Antibiotic in the U.S."
In Matt. 24:7, Christ warned his disciples that in the age shortly before he returns to earth in the Revelation, [NOT the Rapture] there would be numerous signs including PESTILENCES that the world has never before experienced. Just recently, in the U.S.A., a Nevada woman died “of a superbug resistant to every antibiotic in the US.”
It appears that the age of anti-biotics in the world is over and “superbugs” are overtaking the medical industry. Testing of the dead woman proved that the “superbug had spread throughout her system” that could “fend off 26 different antibiotics.” Dr. James Johnson, a professor of infectious diseases medicine at the University of Minnesota, who is also a specialist at the Minnesota VA Medical Center said, “I think this is the harbinger of future badness to come.” Other scientists “re-echoed Johnson’s warning” about the superbug’s future power and spread.
Scientists Take First Steps to Grow Human Organ in Pigs
No, the above title is NOT a mistake. “Scientists have [actually] grown human cells inside pig embryos, a very early step toward the goal of growing livers and other human organs in animals to transplant into people. Revelation, chapter nine, describes a group of “locusts” who descend upon the earth during the Tribulation Period. These locusts have the shape of horses, hair like women, teeth like lions and faces like the faces of men.
This research obviously will NOT stop with the above steps, but continue into the Tribulation Period until a substitute human being has been created, perhaps much like the creatures described in Revelation chapter nine. The creatures iu Revelation chapter nine obviously do not possess ETERNAL SOULS. They will follow their king and when their evil destructive activity is completed, they will be destroyed. The above activity is a foreshadow of that which will take place during the last half of the Tribulation period described in Revelation chapters 6-19 in the prophetic Scriptures.
“Internet’s next Billion Users Want Video and Voice”
“The Internet’s global expansion is entering a new phase, and it looks decidedly unlike the last one. Instead of typing searches and emails, a wave of newcomers—“the next billion” as the tech industry calls them—is avoiding text, using voice activation and communicating with images.”
“They are a swath of the world’s less-educated, online for the first time thanks to low-end smartphone, cheap data plans and intuitive apps that let them navigate despite poor literacy…. Incumbent tech companies are finding they must rethink their products for these newcomers and face local competitors that have been quicker to figure them out.”
There is yet coming during the Tribulation period, a simpler form of communication, using the MARK of the beast in the forehead or the right hand, without which no one will be able to buy or sell. This form of communication is now, in effect, in operation in many businesses where you can simply slide a finger on the glass plate or designated object to complete a business transaction.
Praise the Lord, genuine believers will be GONE TO HEAVEN (John 14:1-6) and will view these atrocious scenes from Glory! This is NOT to say that true saints will not experience opposition and persecution. Christ predicted such opposition in John 16:33, while the Apostle Paul warned in II Tim. 3:12 about the intense persecution future generations of believers would face. However, these possible intense sufferings are NOT to be equated with the oppression of the Great Tribulation which church age believers will not endure.
