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.

Troops Exchange Heavy Fire Again

Heavy fighting broke out again between Thai and Cambodian soldiers, a day after six died in the bloodiest border clash since the UN appealed for a permanent ceasefire in February. The two neighbours have fought a series of deadly gunbattles in recent years in disputed jungle near ancient temples strung out along the frontier, which has never been fully demarcated, partly because it is littered with landmines.

Friday's clash was the first serious outbreak of hostilities since February when 10 people were killed in fighting near the 900-year-old Hindu temple Preah Vihear, prompting UN Security Council members to call for a lasting ceasefire.

The latest fighting, which left three soldiers dead on each side on Friday and more than a dozen others wounded, took place near a different group of temples over 100 kilometres away from Preah Vihear. Observers say the temple dispute has been used as a rallying point to stir nationalist sentiment in Thailand and Cambodia.

The two sides blamed each other for Friday's clash, which lasted for more than six hours and prompted thousands of villagers to flee the border area.

Putin Outlines Blueprint for Stronger Russia

Topic: Vladimir Putin’s annual report to parliament

Russia needs to be strong and avoid experiments with "unjustified liberalism" in order to safeguard its sovereignty and prevent outsiders from dictating the country's development, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

The powerful Russian prime minister, who some analysts believe will bid to return to the Kremlin in 2012 and succeed his hand-picked successor, President Dmitry Medvedev, outlined a bullish agenda for Russia's future political and economic development.

Russia has emerged from the global financial crisis in far better shape than most countries and will completely offset economic crisis-related losses by the start of 2012, before moving on to new achievements, Putin said.

Egypt Unrest: 846 Killed in Protests - Official Toll

At least 846 people were killed during the popular uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak, an Egyptian government fact-finding panel says. It accuses the security forces of "excessive" use of force during the mass protests which began on 25 January, the AP news agency reports.

The revised toll of 846 civilians dead is more than twice the previous official figure of 365. Twenty-six policemen were also killed in the 18 days of unrest, the report said.

30 Wounded In Yemen Protests

Tear gas and live fire at mass Yemen demos

SANAA — Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in massive protests demanding the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh across Yemen on Sunday, amid reports of casualties in the capital Sanaa.

An AFP video reporter at a hospital said: "A medical source in the hospital has just told me that there are 1,000 suffocation cases because of tear gas and 30 injured by live rounds."

Security forces were deployed heavily in Sanaa where hundreds of thousands of men and women took to the streets in protest at Saleh's call for an end to men and women demonstrating together against the regime and calling for his ouster.

More than 125 people are estimated to have been killed since protests calling for Saleh's ouster erupted in late January, inspired by uprisings which toppled long-time rulers in Tunisia and Egypt.

The Papal Throne to Shift from Rome to Jerusalem?

What do you think the Vatican and Islam are talking about when they met for interfaith dialogue?

They have already agreed on the most important issues:

1. The Holy land is occupied by Zionists and needs to be liberated.

2. Both Roman Catholicism and Islam are included in Gods plan of saving mankind, since both represent the children of God of Abraham.

3. All religions expresses some truths about God, and needs to be included to make an fulfilled picture of the creator.

4. Jesus is the son of Mary.

5. World peace will first flow out from Jerusalem when the three present main religions are able to live in peace, and come together as one voice and offer God interfaith prayers.

Peres: Israel Needs To Formulate Its Own Mideast Peace Plan

President says Israel's focus should be on making peace not on offering peace plans; comment comes amid reports of a planned U.S. initiative to restart stalled peace talks. Peres' comments also came after UN political chief Lynn Pascoe and ambassadors of key Security Council countries said it was important to break the peace-talks deadlock soon as a proclaimed September deadline for reaching an agreement draws closer.

"Bold and decisive steps are needed to resolve this decades-long conflict, with vision, leadership and responsibility from all concerned," Pascoe told a monthly meeting of the Security Council on the Middle East.

Turkey: Israel-Palestinian Peace Will Decide Fate of Arab Uprisings

In New York Times editorial, Turkish President Abdullah Gul says Israel must react to growing desire for Mideast democracy, adds it cannot afford to be perceived as an 'apartheid island' in an Arab-dominated region.

The Turkish President said that Israel, more than any country, needs to adapt to the new political climate of the region. "But it need not fear," he said, "the emergence of a democratic neighborhood around Israel is the ultimate assurance of the country’s security."

The New York Times editorial said that the plight of the Palestinians has been a cause of unrest and conflict in the region and a pretext for extremism in other parts of the world. "Israel cannot afford to be perceived as an apartheid island surrounded by an Arab sea of anger and hostility," said the Turkish president.

The article added that a dignified Palestine, living side by side with Israel, will fortify Israel's security, and that Turkey will benefit from a peaceful Middle East. "We are therefore ready to use our full capacity to facilitate constructive negotiations."

Ahmadinejad: The Era of Zionism is Over

Speaking at celebrations for Iran's Army Day, Ahmadinejad denounces Israel and capitalism, accuses US of fomenting Arab unrest. Discussing the unrest sweeping the Middle East and North Africa, Ahmadinejad pointed the finger of blame at the United States, accusing President Barack Obama and his administration of conspiring to create a rift between Iran and Arab nations.

In a public speech last week, Ahmadinejad said the world would see a new Middle East without the United States and Israel. He accused the US and Israel of plotting to "spark an Iranian- Arabian Shi’ite-Sunni conflict." Israel was nearing its end, he said, and added, "Regional nations have awakened, but the global arrogance intends to sow discord among countries in the region."

The war of words between Iran, the largest Shi’ite-dominated country in the region and an arch foe of the United States, and the Sunni Gulf Arab monarchies that are allied to Washington, has intensified in recent days.

From Texas to Ohio, Tornado, Thunderstorm Outbreak

ST. LOUIS, Missouri — Severe thunderstorms marched along band from Texas through to Ohio on Saturday as residents recoiled from a fierce storm that swept the west side of St. Louis. The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings for parts of southern Illinois to northern Kentucky and southwest Ohio amid severe thunderstorms.

Forecasters also were keeping watch on possible flooding along the Ohio and Great Miami rivers, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Saturday. Elsewhere, severe storms produced significant damage to trees and power lines and were capable of producing strong winds of more than 80 miles per hour.

Conditions were brewing for severe weather from central Texas to the far-southern reaches of Missouri south of St. Louis, AccuWeather.com reported. In northwest Tennessee, a severe thunderstorm was producing quarter-sized hail and high winds. Two strong weather systems could bring several inches of rain, damaging winds, very large hail and tornadoes early next week in the region.

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)

"He who testifies to these things says, 'Surely I am coming quickly.' Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." (Revelation 22:20-21)

Something great is coming out of the ashes, as the chaff is being burned by the unquenchable fire. I learned Good Friday that a group of Orthodox Jews in New York and a group of Orthodox Jews in Israel itself have formed splinter groups in both parts of the world and are now known as

"JEWS FOR JESUS" a new sect developing to recognize, honour and glorify Jesus as the True Messiah, The Christ and yes the Risen Lord and Son of God.

God works in mysterious ways!

"Alleluljah to the Lamb of God."

Let us pray for these people and for their sect to grow and prosper to the glory of God. Amen.

Brother Dave.

@Tamarajo - Thanks for your comment. Glad to be blessed with continuing this series of updates so others may likewise remain informed!

@Dave Mathews - Hail brother Dave and thanks for your input as well. Alleluljah indeed! -may revival prosper in preparation for the Lord's Kingdom.

May we also pray for ALL of the oppressed and suffering people mentioned in these news reports, that the Lord's hand will continue to work in their lives and shield them from the evil forces that are in opposition to Him while they continue in the world, as we are all one "Body in Christ".

"For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body - whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free - and we were all given the one Spirit to drink." (1 Corinthians 12:13 NIV)

Some very amazing truths you have shared here and I am thankful someone takes the time to do such a great work. I receive frequent emails from a family our church supports in Israel. They have been there twenty years and have said the last two have fulfilled so much prophecy and reading newspapers there is like reading Bible prophecy, we truly have changed from the last days to the last minutes. Amen keep up the good work my friend.

Hello Michael and thank you for your support. If we can see these things unfolding based on the news reports worldwide, I cannot even imagine how it must seem to the people actually living in these regions.

May our prayers continue to be with them as the "Day of the Lord" approaches for us all... Rev.Ted
