End times: pieces of the puzzle?

17 July 2013, 13:21

Rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem

There needs to be a temple in place for end time prophecies to be fulfilled. The antichrist will place himself in the temple and would want to be worshipped as God.

Jewish organisations like the Temple Institute and Temple Mount Faithful have made significant progress in this regard with more support coming from elsewhere.

Vatican and resurrection of the Roman Empire

It has been 600 years ago that a pope resigned. It is almost unchartered territory for the Vatican to have a former pope who is still alive. Is the current pope Peter the Roman as some scholars believe?

Many Bible scholars are of the opinion that the antichrist will rise from a reunited Roman Empire. The Treaty of Rome was the international agreement that led to the founding of the European Economic Community effective 1 Jan 1958. The new EU constitution was signed on Capitoline Hill in Rome.

The search for extraterrestrial life (aliens) and UFOs

The Government of the Vatican State supports the Vatican Observatory staff and regular research costs and the facility houses what is known as Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT). In an interview, headlined "The extraterrestrial is my brother," a variety of topics were covered with Rev Jose Gabriel Funes including the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and science, and the theological implications of the existence of alien life.

The Vatican held a 6 day conference on extra terrestrial life in Nov 2009. It would seem that extraterrestrial life is extremely high on the agenda of the Vatican. I thought the ‘church’ is supposed to preach the gospel? There have been at least 300 alien movies since 1900s, vast amounts of money spent on a concept that supposedly does not exist (movie category: fantasy). UFO sightings are a popular topic for documentaries, but investigations are seldom conclusive. Phil Schneider’s wife, Cynthia Drayer believes he was murdered because he publicly revealed the truth about the US Govt’s involvement with UFOs.

Rebuilding Babylon

Babylon is the modern country of Iraq which was invaded by George Bush Jr in recent times because of the threat of weapons of mass destruction. It has been difficult to quantify what they found Iraq in terms of WMDs. Iraq is now being rebuilt and was listed as the fastest growing (hottest) economies by www.businessinsider.com.

Transhumanism or H+movement

Genetic alteration is another popular movie theme these days. Transhumanist thinkers predict that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label ‘Posthuman.’  Research in this field of study is well established and funded.

Globalisation and new world order

On 11 Sep 1991 George Bush Sr spoke about a ‘new world order.’ Ten years later, to the day on 11 Sep 2001 his son made a remarkable political comeback on the back of what became known as 9-11.

What followed was a stubborn global financial crisis. In the European Union austerity measures have been implemented and unemployment levels are on the rise. In the US the Federal Reserve Bank (privately owned) implemented what is referred to as ‘Quantitative easing’ – many experts are of the opinion that the Federal Reserve merely created a problem for themselves down the line.

Natural disasters

There seems to be a rise in the occurrence of natural disasters (earthquakes, floods etc). How about that meteorite falling in Russia a few months ago?

So, do we put these together? Or do we view it as isolated events? Or should we not pay attention to these at all?
