It is about end time sings that not many people speak of.
                                      The Signs of the Times

  We all have seen the earth quakes, famines, plagues, wars, rumors of wars, and so on. Have we seen an increase in these things? Not really, these things have been going on since the day they were said, but there has been a subtle little change, our knowledge of them. It is these subtle little changes that this book is about. Did he say there would be an increase in these things, or did he just say you will see these things happening?

  Someone jumped on the accelerator!!! What do I mean? “Technology”, virtually everything we use today has been invented in the past 200 years. And while you can argue that the axe has been around forever, the way it is made has not. This tells me we are racing to the finish line. The most alarming change I have seen is the need for the governments to know every thing about you. The Information Age, We live in a time when it is illegal to walk down the street without ID, even in the so called Free World. The rule of thumb is that “if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear,” but I know that when governments want to know everything about you, then, Evil soon Follows. This has been true with every government that has taken this path, and every one of them turned on their own people. Hitler was one, Stalin was another and there where many others. So for me this is a sign of the times, because murder is in the air.

  This brings me to Matthew 24:7

  “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.”

  When I read this in the past I thought that this meant one kingdom would fight another, but that is not what it means. The Holy Spirit pointed out to me that this means that the governments will rise against its own people and the people will rise against its own government, which is what we see happening today. All of the wars going on right now are the people verses government and government verses people, there are no nations trying to take another. Consider the war on drugs, are we fighting a government or just people with guns? Consider the war on terrorism, are we fighting a government or just people with guns? 
 
  The Subtle Little Changes, may not seem like anything to you, but for me they are leaps and bounds meaning only one thing, the governments are gearing up to kill its own people. What are they?
1.          The military is doing more training in urban warfare. (That means to train busting into homes.)
2.          Putting up cameras at every light.
3.          Putting up cameras every ΒΌ mile on the interstate.
4.          Tapping all phone calls.
5.          Trying to force everyone to have a bank account.
6.          Putting kill switches in cars.
7.          Monitoring all internet users.
8.          Putting GPS in all cell phones.
9.          Putting up safety check points. (These are nothing but roadblocks under the  presence that they are there for your safety, I have yet to meet someone who felt safe by going through one.)
10.           Making banks report you if you move to much money at one time.
11.           Making power Co. report you if you use too much electricity.
12.           Offering money to turn in friends, family and co-workers.
13.           Using the D.A.R.E. program to teach children to turn in friends and family.
14.           Development of the bio-chip technology.
15.           Development of facial ID technology.
16.           Putting up spy cams all over the cities.
17.           Using x-ray cams on people and luggage to board planes.
18.           Using hidden prisons to keep people without due process of law.
19.           Forcing all government employees to submit to drug tests, finger printing and D-N-A testing, and to have bank accounts.
20.           Putting in tapping ports in computers so they can down load your info.
21.           Developing and using no-knock-warrants so they can break into your house at 3:00 am and drag you off to jail.
22.           Gunning down privet airplanes.
23.           Boarding and or sinking private boats in international waters.
24. Building prisons at an alarming rate. (At this time they have over 2 million people in prison, on a revolving door.)   

  There is plenty more to write, that is just a few off the top of my head. All of these are small changes and that by themselves would mean nothing, but put them together and it smells like, “Nation rising against Nation,” but these subtle little changes do not stop at your door, there was a time when a “Mans home was his Castle,” that is no longer true. But rather these words are coming true.

                                                    Matthew 10:34

  “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn:
 
    “A man against his father,
  A daughter against her mother,
  A daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,
A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”

  If you look back at the homes of around 100 years or older, the first thing you should take note of is the size, they were very large. The reason for that was whole family’s lived together; if it was a farm they all lived and worked together, if they had a business then they all lived and worked together, and the head of the house was respected by all. Not so today! Today we find quailing and strife and a lack of respect by all. Therefore we live in small houses and even in them you find them breaking up. The divorce rate has climbed form about 6% to over 50%, (at the present time it is at 45% but that is because we are at war, death and the fact that so many are away from home is the reason for the drop.) that is if they bother to get married at all, and the adultery rate is even higher then that. Children rebel against there parents and turn them into the law, most send the elders away, rather then take care of them themselves. 

  What I am saying here is that friends and family can no longer trust each other the way they did in the past. The government will even pay you to betray your family and friends. As they so boldly announce, but this is one of the worst sins you can commit, as Christ pointed out.

                                                John 19:11

  “Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”

  And the one who handed him over was Judas, who betrayed him for money, something the government is teaching people to do. Another way they are getting people to betray each other is to make plea-deals, by threatening to give you large amounts of jail time unless you turn someone in. So we are being taught to betray each other by the very people we pay to protect us.

    This spirit of betrayal has long been spoken of, even before Christ came on the seen.

                                              Micah 7:4

  “The best of them is like a brier, the most upright worse than a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen has come, the day God visits you. Now is the time of their confusion.
Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend.
Even with her who lies in your embrace be careful of your words.
For a son dishonors his father, a daughter rise’s up against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law- a man’s enemies are the members of his own house.”

  Another way we are being taught to betray each other is divorce. If you look back 100 years or so you see a divorce was very hard to get, but now it is done by the mere stroke of a pen. This may seem meaningless to you, but it is a breaking of a direct command of Christ.

                                              Mark 10:6

  “But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female; For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh; So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”

  This would mean nothing if we where just speaking of non Christian’s, but the divorce rate is the same for Christian as for non Christian, and we are going to man to have it done. A subtle little change that seems to have gone unnoticed over the years, it seems to me like this.

                                              Matthew 24:12

  “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.”

   
  There has been small changes in the family structures as well, if you look at the way the children act in a home with a father vs. a home without one, you see a clear cut difference in respect and attitude. Furthermore children are now being perceived as a curse rather then a blessing, teaching young girls that you are ruining your life by having children, as well as saying that getting married at a young age is ruining your life. Go back a hundred years or so, marriage and having children was considered a blessing, and being a virgin was considered a desirable quality, now you would be very lucky to marry a virgin.

  Now we teach: Abortion, condoms, the morning after pill, RU486, The Pill. And not to breast feed but rather to use some form of man made formula. It looks a lot like something that Christ said about the end times.

                                                Luke 23:29

  “For the time will come when you will say, “Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed;”

  Indeed we have seen a shift in this direction, when careers and school, new cars, new homes and money are more important then family. A subtle little change that has been going on ever since we put up the statue of Liberty, which in of itself by every sense of the word is Idol Worship, not that people bow down to it, but rather we live by its principle, for what does it stand for? It was not men who needed Liberty and the statue is not of a man but a woman. For those who would say it’s not an idol, think for a moment, what would they do to you if you tore it down? Does this kind of thing anger God? Look at what he says in Revelations.

                                                Revelation 9:20

  “The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.”

  Our is made of bronze, (take note that I underlined the words “Magic arts,” the word used in the King James is, “Sorceries,” the word used in Greek is, “Phamakeia,” and means witchcraft, magic, the use of spells and potions of magic, often involving drugs- sorceries/witchcraft.) idol worship is another subtle little change that has slipped in unnoticed. But you can see it if you are looking for it, for it is everywhere. In some churches they put up idols and call them Jesus or Marry or Saint Jude or who ever else they choose, then bow down to it and pray to it. Another person looks to a flag and pledges his life to it. Almost every city I have been in has some form they worship, be it fish or mermaids or horses or Neptune or some Greek god, if you deface one of them and you will see how much they love them. For some it’s money that is their god, for them greed is good and charity is bad unless you can right it off on your tax’s. 

  Here is another subtle little change that goes largely unnoticed, go back in time and women dressed from head to toe, and they said, ‘You are treating us like sex objects.’ So we gave them Liberty, so they hiked up their dress, put on makeup, put on bathing suits that were less than their underwear, posed for centerfolds, burned their bra, put on perfume and entered the work place, and then said, ‘You are treating us like sex objects.’ I tried to make sense of this, and all I could come up with is this; they want to be treated as sex objects just not by their husband.   

  There are subtle changes that have gotten some attention, like the fact that we are losing two species every day, be it plant or animal, this has the scientist screaming to make it stop, but it just keeps going. But God said this would happen.

                                              Zephaniah 1:2

  “I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth, declares the Lord.
I will sweep away both men and animals; I will sweep away the birds of the air and the fish of the sea.
The wicked will have only heaps of rubble when I cut man from the face of the earth, declares the Lord.”

  When you sweep you do not do it all at once, but rather little by little, just the way we see it being done. That brings me to another little change that most do not take note of; and that is the Act of God, the term is used by insurance companies to describe something that happens to you that is out of your control. Like a hurricane or a drought, but now we do not call them acts of God. Never mind that the Bible says that God uses fire, wind, rain, floods, droughts, earthquakes, war, famine, plague, hail, panic, loss of live stock, destruction of beasts, poverty, locust, destruction of crops, betrayal, uprisings, destruction of water supply’s, just to name a few. He uses these things as a way to punish nations, he starts off small at first and then hits harder and harder until they repent, and if they refuse to repent then comes total destruction, it’s a play that has been done over and over right up until Revelation’s. But still we refuse to believe that it comes from God, even though Christ himself said.

                                                Matthew 10:29

  “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.”

  If a sparrow can not fall apart from the will of God, then twin towers can not fall apart from his will, nor can New Orleans flood apart from his will, nor can we be at war for the last 9 years apart from his will. But we do not want to say that this comes from God, because that would mean we would have to repent, and we don’t want to do that, so we blame everything but God. But God wants us to acknowledge him and we refuse, so it keeps getting worse a little at a time. Is that not what Revelation said would happen? The whole world refusing to believe and repent until it is completely destroyed, and this is done on the blood of the Christians.

  That brings me to another subtle change that for the most part goes unmentioned, and that is that God cannot even be spoke of in school, the very mention of his name can land you in jail, but this was not how it was, in fact they used Bibles in schools to teach kids how to read, but now you are not even aloud to bring a Bible to school. This is due to a thing called, “The Separation of Church and State.” But it was never meant to keep the Church out of the state, but rather to keep the state out of the Church. The founding fathers came from a world where the state ran the Church, and the result was murder by the church and state, and they did not want a repeat of that, so these highly religious men came up with separation of church and state, not at all meaning that the state had a right to persecute people who speak of God. In fact we came up with a whole new religion called evolution to compensate for the missing God, now our God is an Ape.
  Now someone will say evolution is not a religion, I would disagree for religion is nothing more that a belief system, and this belief system denounces the creator and says you are nothing more than a by-product of a monkey, where in my belief system both monkey and man are the by-product of the creator.

  Does that mean that I want prayer in the schools? No! That kind of prayer is useless anyway, and is taught by those who teach falsely, anyone who teaches the truth teaches what Christ said.

                                                Matthew 6:5

  “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth; they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

  I confronted the Church with this hypocrisy before. Needless to say it did not go over so well, none the less one of the men asked me a question, he said, “Why then do we pray in Church?” I would like to answer that in Christ’s own words.

                                                  Mark 7:6

  “He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites, as it is written:
These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.
  You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men.”

  And there you have it “Traditions of men,” for the command is, “to pray unseen by men,” but we have a need to look Holy in the sight of men. It was true two thousand years ago and it is still true today.

  There are many subtle little changes like this in the Church, so much so that I am better off not going to Church at all. It is the yeast that Christ spoke about.

                                                  Matthew 16:6

  “Be careful,” Jesus said to them, “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducee s.”

  And there again:

                                            Luke 20:46

  “Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.
  They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.”

  Two thousand years and it is still the same, although most traded in the robe for a new suit and tie, and changed their names form Pharisees to Clergy, and Sadducee s to Baptist or whatever name they chose. But that which is being done are still the same things, the Churches on a whole are taking in billions of dollars every year, yet very little goes to the poor. Which is why I don’t give to the Church anymore, for the command is.

                                                Luke 12:32

  “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor.”

  He did not say to give it to the fat cats in 500 dollar suits, who suck up the money and leave very little for the poor, if anything at all. This has been a subtle little change over time as well. With that kind of money coming into the Churches, there is no reason for even one person to die from hunger, unless you factor in the greed factor!

  There is a phrase I us to describe the subtle change that has taken place in the Church, and that is;
  “They took away my bread and gave me a cracker;
They took away my wine and gave me a thimble full of grape juice;
They took away my dipping bowl and passed me a plate so I could pay them;
But I am taking it back!” 

  Another subtle change has been the lack of mercy, what I mean by that is that in the past it was; “If you don’t have a victim, you don’t have a crime,” but now you can put people in prison who never did anyone harm, on things like intent or association which means that you have not harmed anyone, but they say they can see the future and you were going to. Even God himself does not bring the charge of sin upon a man, until he has committed the sin. Why? Because there is always a chance that he will change his mind, in that case you would be punishing someone for what they did not do.

  Let me give you an example: Say I grow ten or twenty marijuana plants even if I had the intent to sell it, but I lose heart and decide not to, if you charge me with the intent to sell, then you have charged me with something I was not going to do, and that is not justice at all, that is injustice. That is the reason why God does not stop you from sinning, because the choice is yours right up until you do it, then you are guilty or if you back off you are not guilty, because God does not condemn the innocent. But he will show Mercy to those who repent, for all have sinned even those judges and cops who are condemning everyone. The only difference is that some get caught and some don’t.

  Here is another subtle change that everyone thinks is right.

                                                            Isaiah 3:11

    “Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done.
  Youths oppress my people, women rule over them. O my people, your guides lead you astray; they turn you from the path.”   

  Isn’t that amazing, we do have the youth oppressing the people with gangs and women do rule over us almost all the way to the white house. This is a curse on men, men who foolishly let our leaders dictate what we can and cannot do, so the children rise up and the women rise up and we say it is good. But it is not good, it is a curse! Brought on the heads of foolish men, for only a fool would hand his authority over to those who are below him! Is there any wonder why the Muslims don’t want our goddess the “Statue of Liberty,” (Idol Worship) in their land? Hell I don’t want it in my land, and I sure as hell don’t want to live by its teachings! But the Churches say it is good, that is because most of their money comes from women, and that is because most men won’t go to Church, and I am one of them, and that is because I can see the Church as nothing more than False Hood, just as all the other men can see it. In there you find the False Teachers, the False Prophets, and the False Brothers, who steal the money meant for the poor and molest your children, and teach you that it is OK for women to rule over you, why would I go there? Danger! Danger! Indeed we are heading into the times Christ spoke of.

                                                    Matthew 24:30

  “At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.”

  Do not think that that I have lost faith in God, it is my faith in this world that is in jeopardy. I have lost faith in the Church as it is corrupt and vile, I see the Muslims as more righteous then us, so when they say that we are the infidels, then I say they are right. I have lost faith in my government which is vile and corrupt, while taking their Viagra (Witchcraft) so they can get it up for their boy interns (sexual immorality), and approve more money for the government to spy on us (666), because the money has to come from somewhere, and while they want to make budget cuts, that is the one place they don’t look for it. It is the only thing they can agree on, to tighten the noose around the neck of the people.   

  Another change that has taken place is the way the police and courts now trump up the charges, what I mean to say is a man steals something and gets caught, but he runs from the police so they tack on a charge for running, and another for resisting arrest and anything else they can. Running is not a sin! It is an instinct. Every animal on the face of the planet runs when it perceives danger, and what could be more dangers than a man hunting you? You are charging men for acting on their own fears, and that is not justice that is just wickedness. Further more is the fact that the cops use deception and lying and say, “The ends justifies the means,” and the judges know this and play along with it. So what is the problem?              These men are in the business of truth and justice, and you can not have truth or justice when you are lying and deceiving people. Even a complete moron knows that!

  I used to say that Russia was becoming more like the U.S. and the U.S. is becoming more like Russia every day. What did I mean by this? It means that Russia was becoming ashamed of it spying and treatment of its people, in the mean time the U.S. was heading down that path more and more, and here we are Russia has fallen apart, and the U.S. has home land security, the U.S. version of the K.G.B. people who have the power and money to get away with anything, even torture, false imprisonment, phone tapping, spying, murder, home invasion, imprisonment without a trial. If there is one thing that we have learned about this government it is, that if you give them an inch they will take a mile. So hold on, for these atrocities have just begun, we will regret having unleashed such a wicked thing on the people of the U.S.

  There is more to say about this, but I have learned over the years that it is better to keep things short; most people don’t mind reading, that is unless it goes on forever. So I will leave it at that for now.

  If you feel like I have judged you, I haven’t. I leave judging up to God. What I have done is make open discernment's between right and wrong, something that we all must do unless our judgments become clouded. As far as I can tell it already has become clouded on an overall scale.
