PROPHETIC WORLD CLOCK - Biblical Countdown for the End of the Current Age

OUR CLOCK represents the last seven years of the "Common Era" (C.E. or A.D. Anno Domini) traditionally reckoned as the era following the conception or birth of Jesus of Nazareth, with C.E. counting the years since the start of this epoch.

THE TIME on the "Prophetic Clock", is shown as "7 minutes 'till Midnight", reflecting the last seven years of this age, which is the point in time that we are rapidly approaching now.

"And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom [ Christ the Lord ] is coming; go out to meet him!’" (Matthew 25: NKJ)

This of course referring to the seven years of the "Great Tribulation Period", the final end of this age and the start of the next, the coming Kingdom of Christ on Earth for the next 1000 years. The time on the clock will ONLY change when that day finally arrives; until the final minutes start counting down it will remain at (11:53 C.E.).

This IS NOT the "Doomsday Clock" either (at least not for the "saved" believers), but reflects a time for great rejoicing in the next age that is coming and a message of hope and salvation for the rest of the world; all those who have not found the love and grace of the Lord God yet.

2 Killed as Cops Clash with Protesters in Peru

Lima – Two people were killed and 44 others injured Thursday when Peruvian police sought to clear protesters occupying a bus station in the southern city of Mollendo. The injured include both police and civilians. Another person was fatally shot Monday amid the disturbances.

Thursday's clash came on the 16th day of a general strike in Islay aimed at derailing the Tia Maria copper mine and less than 72 hours ahead of Peru's presidential and congressional elections.

"If there is still a violent attitude, we, in coordination with (local) authorities, will protect the rights of those who need to travel on that highway," he said, adding that Peru needs "calm" for Sunday's elections.

Some 3,000 protesters in Mollendo continued to battle police as of midday Thursday, according to Luque. He said the city's hospital could no longer cope with the number of wounded and that he had formally asked the central government to send help.

Somalia: Gunmen Kill Five in Puntland

LAS ANOD — Heavily armed men killed at least five and injured another four civilians in Somalia’s semi autonomous region of Puntland on Wednesday, news reports said. According to local media, Mohamed Yassin Isse, Puntland Development and Research Centre (PDRC) chairman, was ambushed and killed by a group of heavily armed men as he returned to his house from work on Wednesday in the town of Garowe.

Mr Ahmed was shot with a pistol as he left Al-Rahma Mosque after evening prayers in the Biyokulule neighborhood. The gunmen injured another two young men at the scene but medical staffs said one of them had died on the way to the hospital. Mr Ahmed was about to be inaugurated as a tribal chief to replace Isse Hassan who was also gunned down in November 2010 in Bosasso.

Violent deaths against tribal elders and leaders have reached record levels in Puntland in recent months and no one seems to know why they have became a target. At least four tribal elders were killed in the towns of Bosasso, Galkayo and Garowe in the last month alone including Salah Abdulsalam Ahmed ‘Faqash’, Nur Hirsi Osman, Ahmed Salad Ainab and Hussein Ali Dud’e.

Death Toll in Sakhi Sarwar Shrine Blasts Reaches 42.

D.G. KHAN: The death toll in two suicide blasts near Sakhi Sarwar Shrine have reached to 42, while more than 100 devotees are under treatment in different hospitals of the district, Geo News reported on Sunday.

So far the police have not yet managed to track down those responsible for three bombings in the region of Terai, where in recent years Hindu extremists linked to the Nepal Defence Army (NDA) have been active.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian legislator deplored the continued suppression of the Bahraini protesters by the Saudi troops deployed in the tiny Persian Gulf island, and warned that the move will result in the accelerated collapse of the Al- Saud dynasty in Saudi Arabia.

Pointing to the deployment of Saudi forces in Bahrain, Mahmoud Ahmadi Biqash warned, "…the Wahabi king of Saudi Arabia should know that although he embarked on occupying Bahrain to renew his allegiance and obedience to the US and Britain in a bid to prevent his collapse, we will soon witness the collapse of their (the Al-Saud) medieval dynasty and cruel dictatorship."

Two Protesters Die and Hundreds Hurt in Yemen Clash

SANAA (Reuters) - Two Yemenis died and hundreds were hurt on Sunday when police used live rounds, tear gas and batons to try to break up protests against President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who called for an end to weeks of unrest. The two dead were among around 10 people hit by bullets in the violence in Taiz, south of the capital, where doctors said dozens were wounded, and that they were treating hundreds suffering tear gas inhalation.

Protests inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia have brought Saleh's rule to the verge of collapse. But the president, a perennial survivor, called on Sunday for an end to the violence, signalling he has no intention of resigning soon.

Under the opposition plan, the army and security forces would be restructured by a vice-president acting as temporary president, the opposition coalition said on Saturday. Wide discussions could then be held on constitutional changes, a unity government and new elections.

Talks have been off and on over the past two weeks, sometimes in the presence of the U.S. ambassador. Sources say Saleh wants to ensure he and his family do not face prosecution over corruption claims that the opposition has talked about.

The death of 52 protesters on March 18, apparently at the hands of government snipers, led to a string of defections among diplomats, tribal leaders and key generals, spurring Saleh to warn against a coup that he says would lead to civil war.

Bangladesh: 1 Dead in Clash Over Women's Rights

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) -- Bangladeshi security officials on Sunday opened fire and used tear gas to disperse stone-throwing members of a hardline Islamic group protesting a government policy for women's equal right to inheritance, leaving one protester dead and 25 others injured.

According to Muslim family law, women can only claim a quarter of what men get from their parents. Under the new rules, every child would inherit the same amount. The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Zia's archrival, says it wants women to have greater rights in employment, inheritance and education.

Israel Believes Hamas Trying to Establish 'Balance of Terror'

According to senior defense source, Hamas' prime minister has no control over the situation in Gaza; information gathered from Thursday's bus attack show the shooters knew the target contained children.

A senior defense source told Haaretz on Thursday night that he believes this was an act by the military wing of the organization, and that their aim was to deter Israel and establish a "balance of terror."

The Israel Defense Forces quickly retaliated for the attack, launching both land and air strikes on Hamas targets in the Strip, the IDF spokesperson said, killing a 50-year-old man and wounding five others.

Hamas considers these moves as an intentional accumulation, nearing a declaration of war: a series of air attacks on the Strip killing its operatives, the case of Dirar Abu Sisi (the Gazan engineer which Hamas claims Israel kidnapped in the Ukraine), and this week's bombing in Sudan, which has been attributed to Israel. As far as the military wing of the group is concerned, this is a list of actions which require a deterring response - in the form of Thursday's anti-tank missile attack, and the subsequent firing of mortars.

Ahmadinejad Hits Back at Obama

In a sharply-worded press conference, Iran's President Mahmud Ahmadinejad hit back at Barack Obama, predicting that "a future more shameful than his predecessor" is awaiting the United States president, whom he accused of adding deception to the mix of George W Bush's hegemonic policies in the Middle East.

Ahmadinejad accused the U.S. of being the motivating force behind the anti-Iran stance of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, who in their latest communique accused Iran of meddling in Bahrain's affairs. At the same time, Ahmadinejad accused the US and Israel of conspiring to "partition Jordan" under the guise of establishing a Palestinian state. He defended Tehran's decision to extend an invitation to Jordan's King Abdullah bin Hussein II and maintained that Abdullah had postponed the trip, contrary to reports that Iran had done so.

Iran: Israel's Nuclear Program is Destabilizing the Entire Mideast

Speaking at the United Nation's Annual Conference of the Disarmament Commission, Iran's envoy to the UN Mohammad Khaza’ie was quoted by Iran's official IRNA news agency as saying that Israel's non-membership in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) was destabilizing the region.

Referring to the prospect of a nuclear-free Middle East, Iran's envoy to the UN said that "efforts aimed at establishing such as region have been unsuccessful due to that regime’s regarding from joining the NPT, and as a result its nuclear facilities, too, have not been under the supervision of the IAEA."

"We believe that through good-faith direct negotiations the parties should mutually agree on an outcome that realizes the aspirations of both parties. Ultimately, a lack of resolution to this conflict, harms Israel, harms the Palestinians and harms the interests of the United States and the international community."

Later Monday, Ahmadinejad was quoted by the Iranian Mehr news agency as saying that a Western plot was in motion to divide Jordan, geared at saving "the Zionist regime from annihilation and tell the world that an independent state of Palestine has been formed" However, the Iranian president added, these "attempts will not save Israel from extinction."

700 Fishermen Missing in Myanmar after Storms

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Nearly 700 fishermen from Myanmar are missing after a three-day burst of unseasonable storms that ripped apart rickety fishing boats in the Andaman Sea, news reports said Monday. Rescued fishermen gave harrowing accounts. Some told local media they held on for days to broken bamboo rafts before being rescued by offshore oil companies, Thai fishing boats or Myanmar naval boats.

The Weekly Eleven news journal reported that 15,583 fisherman were rescued after the March 14-17 storms whipped up 70 mph (112 kph) winds, battering fishing rafts and trawlers, and sweeping thousands of fisherman into the open seas. It said 682 fisherman were missing. The storms hit ahead of the typical rainy period and came during the shrimp fishing season, when thousands of fisherman ply the waters on bamboo rafts.

Europe 'losing' Superbugs Battle

Antibiotic-resistant infections have reached unprecedented levels and now outstrip our ability to fight them with existing drugs, European health experts are warning.

Each year in the EU over 25,000 people die of bacterial infections that are able to outsmart even the newest antibiotics.

The World Health Organization says the situation has reached a critical point. A united push to make new drugs is urgently needed, it says. Without a concerted effort, people could be dealing with the "nightmare scenario" of a worldwide spread of untreatable infections, says the WHO.

One example is the New Delhi or NDM-1 superbug recently found in UK patients. They brought the infection back with them from countries like India and Pakistan, which they had visited for medical treatment and cosmetic surgery.

UF Scientists Continue to Study Colony Collapse Disorder

Honey bees continue decades-long decline in U.S.

Colony Collapse Disorder - Bee colonies have been in decline since the 1940s. Some possible causes: mites, small hive beetles, viruses, microspores

Some other possible causes of Colony Collapse Disorder, which remain under investigation: Israeli acute paralysis virus, the parasite nosema ceranae, traditional bee pests and pathogens, bee management stress, poor genetic biodiversity, chemical use in bee colonies to conrol bee pests, chemical toxins present in the environment, bee nutritional fitness, increasing virulence of existing pathogens, potential synergistic interactions between two or more of the above.

University of Florida Assistant Professor of Entomology Jamie Ellis, who studies Colony Collapse Disorder, says people shouldn't necessarily be alarmed - but they should be concerned. "People need to be cognizant of the fact that honey bees and other pollinators are very important to (the world's) food supply," Ellis said.

Bee decline

A United Nations report released last year states "current evidence demonstrates that a sixth major extinction of biological diversity event is under way." The report says the Earth is losing between 1 and 10 percent of natural habitats per decade. That decline, experts say, seems to be impacting the pollinator populations of bees, moths, butterflies and flies.

There is a Message of HOPE for the WORLD!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even though everything we have discussed and shown thus far seems to depict a tragic and fateful end for our world, that is actually NOT THE CASE! The state of humanity's existence does not end in chaos or complete destruction at this time. Nor will these events leave the whole world in a panicked state of confusion, always to be frustrated in futile attempts trying to achieve a Utopian existence. The "Great Tribulation" period is only for a few short years and is merely a transitional period at end of an age. A NEW AGE IS COMING immediately thereafter!

"...SEE THAT YOU ARE NOT TROUBLED; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matthew 24:6 NKJ)

"All these are the beginning of birth pains [sorrows]." (Matthew 24:8 NIV-KJV)

This is probably the most accurate representation of the entire "Great Tribulation" event. "Birth pains" are very discomforting and often quite painful. A new birth involves "labor" which is an extremely strenuous and exhausting process (ask any woman who has endured this). The end result however, is "relief" from this labor and suffering because a "new life" is then born!

That is exactly what will transpire in this world. We are in the final chapter of an old and worn out age of civilization. A grand and glorious new age lies directly ahead for those of us that endure and have accepted the Lord God.

"These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
(Revelation 7:14-17 NIV)

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF ALL THESE PROPHECIES

Therefore, these sometimes frightening words of prophecy are really a harbinger of hope to those who are searching for God today. It is through the belief that Christ died for our sins (John 3:16) and faith in His second coming (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18), that we are all "saved" and will enter into the coming Kingdom of Heaven along with Him.

"For the grace of God has appeared that offers SALVATION TO ALL PEOPLE. It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope - the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ." (Titus 2:11–13 NIV)

I didn't read all the articles but selected a few of interest. I do like you have organized the world events from a biblical time line perspective. It really does show where we are at. I think it is vital for us to be aware of the vital role we play in the unraveling world events that were foretold of so long ago.

In reference to the articles on Iran and Israel, I couldn't help but think of the verse in Daniel

Daniel 5:28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”

I am curious to see how this plays out.

Interesting article Rev. Ted

Hi Tamara - thanks for stopping by and adding your worthy insights. It is interesting to compare the biblical groups of people and countries in scripture with the current nations of the modern age, especially as they now relate to prophecy.

As believers we are blessed to live in a time where we can actually SEE these things unfolding in the news headlines, which can only lead to strengthen our faith. I pray we are able to likewise bring others to this understanding, so many people will inherit the coming Kingdom.

With His peace... Rev.Ted

christ4ever, Rev.Ted, I appreciate muchly your keeping us up and informed with current events leading up to the unknown time, for the beginning of the "Great Tribulation, and Armegeddon", which we know will follow, after Jesus has safely collected to Himself those "Faithful in Christ" both dead and alive at the announcement of His Second Coming.

You quote I believe Roosevelt when you state: "We Have Nothing To Fear, BUT, Fear Itself." How true this statement is. There is no sense in fearing the past, for it is past already. To fear the future is to fear the unknown yet, which may never happen. Fear is a tool of the devil never to be applied to the life of man, except to fear the inevitible, if we turn our backs on the powers of Almighty God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. God will and must protect all those which are truly His own. Therefore as Christians believers in Christ Jesus we should fear nothing at all.

This is my belief. Here is where I place my faith. If I am wrong, then God help me.

AMEN Brother Dave - There is no fear for the belief in our Lord as He has saved us and His Kingdom comes! Let us all reflect on this during the coming Easter and resurrection season. His name be praised and give us the strength to help others find their way to Him. With His blessings... Rev.Ted

Greetings Rev Ted. Thank you for sharing all the news, WOW. I realize we are in later days, your news articles are ones that 'most' like me, probably do not know of. We are to be watchman and I am grateful I came for a visit. GOD is saying come to me. Return to me people.

The one article the young boy, 'trained to kill and go to Heaven tore my heart. I read each article, took some time and I thank you for your time and hard work into this hub. The Holy Spirit movement is on brother. It is clear He shines in your heart.

Many I speak to would rather hear anything but God, which is not alarming, but sad. I can only pray and pray their hearts come to the One True CHRIST.

Jesus come! Oh what a Glorious day it will be! There is much work to be done. May God continue to raise you up in your ministry at the hubs and around the world. In His Glorious Name.

Great info rated up awesome useful. You keep on Rev Ted. You are in my prayers. I pray many 'hear' If it breaks my heart like this Jesus must have big tears that fall for the nonbeliever. God does not want any to perish. Love ya In Him. Peace brother.

Hail sister Skye and good to hear from you. Glad you like the articles. I try to find material in the international media that takes some more "digging", especially when our own news seems to be a bit jaded at times. Indeed it is a crazy world out there when we can see what is transpiring at so many levels.

We believers will always be strong in the Lord and I pray for more to come and know a reationship with Christ before He returns to claim His prize.

My prayers are likewise always out to you and your family with blessings and the Lord's peace to remain forever... Rev.Ted
