End of the World Predictions

Introduction
End of the world predictions are faced with many unknowns. Jesus Himself said no man knows the day or the hour (Matt:24:36). However, we can, by watching the signs of the times, know that we are close. And because so many signs are being fulfilled, many people do make end of the world predictions. These seem to come up more each time we are about to or do enter a new year. The lead article this month includes 50 predictions for the years 2013. While they are not end of the world predictions, they are related and if even half come true it will be looking more like the end is soon.

Note that I am simply sharing items of interest. That does not imply that I agree with everything presented.


"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars ... nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes ..." (Matt 24:6-7)

50 Predictions For 2013
By: Michael / The Economic Collapse.com / January 1, 2012

50 predictions for 2013
At least one "too big to fail" bank will fail
in the United States by the end of 2013.

"Are you ready for a wild 2013? It should be a very interesting year. When the calendar flips over each January, lots of people make lots of lists. They make lists of 'resolutions', but most people never follow through on them. They make lists of 'predictions', but most of those predictions always seem to end up failing.

"I have decided to put out my own list of predictions for 2013. I openly admit that I won't get all of these predictions right, and that is okay. Hopefully I will at least be more accurate than most of the other armchair prognosticators out there. It is important to look ahead and try to get a handle on what is coming, because I believe that the rest of this decade is going to be extraordinarily chaotic for the U.S. economy.

"The false bubble of debt-fueled prosperity that we are enjoying right now is not going to last much longer. When it comes to an end, the 'adjustment' is going to be extremely painful. Those that understand what is happening and have prepared for it will have the best chance of surviving what is about to hit us. I honestly don't know what everybody else is going to do. Many of the people that don't see the coming collapse approaching will be totally blindsided by it and will totally give in to despair when they realize what has happened. But there is no excuse for not seeing what is coming -- the signs are everywhere.

"So with that being said, the following are 50 bold predictions for 2013...

The Year We Reckon With Iran
Can Chuck Hagel Help Fix Obama's Biggest Problem -- Before It's Too Late?
By: Fareed Zakaria / Time Magazine.com / January 21, 2013

Reckon with Iran
Making coercive diplomacy work requires
a mixture of threats and promises.

"President Obama will face a crisis on Iran. He has categorically ruled out living with a nuclear-armed Iran under a Cold War-style policy of containment. That means either Iran will capitulate to U.S. demands or the U.S. will go to war with Iran. Since the first option is extremely unlikely and the second extremely unattractive, the Obama Administration needs to find a negotiated solution. That means using sticks and carrots -- or what is often called coercive diplomacy -- to get a deal that Washington and Tehran can live with.


Ex-Iranian Diplomat Warns Israel: If Iran Gets the Bomb, It Will Fire On You
Tehran's former consul in Oslo, interviewed on Israeli TV, says Islamic regime is 'willing to destroy many countries'
By: Yifa Yaakov / The Times Of Israel.com / January 25, 2013

Ex-Iranian Diplomat
Heydari said he knew of civilian airplanes
from South America arriving with weaponry
and material for the nuclear program.

"In an interview with Israel's Channel 2 TV, Mohammad Reza Heydari, the former Iranian consul in Oslo who resigned and obtained political asylum there three years ago, said that 'If Iran is given more time, it will acquire the knowledge necessary to build a nuclear bomb within a year.' Asked whether it would use the bomb against Israel, he said: 'If Iran gets to the point where it has an atomic bomb, it will certainly use it, against Israel or any other [enemy] country.'

"Regime leaders 'believe that when they acquire a nuclear bomb, [others] will start to behave toward them as they do toward North Korea,' said Heydari. 'As a matter of fact, the leading way of thinking in Iran is [devoted to] protecting their own security, and nobody else's,' he added.

"'They are busying themselves with ideological preparations for the arrival of the hidden Imam and are preparing the ground for that in a practical way; for this purpose, they are willing to spill much blood and destroy many countries.'"

Next 9/11: Iran's Death Squad is Here
By: Reza Kahlili / World Net Daily.com / December 11, 2012

Iran's Death Squad
Most of the team members have been in
America for a year.

"Iran has infiltrated a team of Quds Force terrorist leaders into the United States to attack from within in 2013, according to a source.

"The source within the office of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic regime, said the team is to create instability in America through terrorism should the U.S. fail to accept the regime's illicit nuclear program, increase sanctions, confront Iran militarily or intervene in the Syrian civil war.

"Members of the team, no more than 10 Quds Force officers, each lead cells totaling about 50 terrorists already in the U.S.

"The source is risking his life not only to reveal the terror operation but to warn that Iran is pursuing its nuclear bomb program around the clock from several secret sites.

"Details of the terror plot, meant to disrupt the West, have been passed on to U.S. officials, who are taking countermeasures."

Reza Kahlili served in CIA Directorate of Operations, as a spy in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, counterterrorism expert; currently serves on the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, an advisory board authorized by Congress.

Government Dependents Outnumber Those With Private Sector Jobs In 11 U.S. States
By: Michael / TheEconomicCollapse.com / December 26, 2012

Government Dependents

"America is rapidly becoming a nation of takers. An increasing number of Americans expect the government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave, and they expect the government to dig into the pockets of others in order to pay for it all. This philosophy can be very seductive, but what happens when the number of takers eventually outnumbers the number of producers?

"In 11 different U.S. states, the number of government dependents exceeds the number of private sector workers. This list of states includes some of the biggest states in the country: California, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, New Mexico and Hawaii. It is interesting to note that seven of those states were won by Barack Obama on election night. In California, there are 139 'takers' for every 100 private sector workers. That is crazy!

"The American people have become absolutely addicted to government money, and it gets worse with each passing year. If you can believe it, entitlements accounted for 62 percent of all federal spending in fiscal year 2012. It would be one thing if we could afford all of this spending, but unfortunately we simply cannot. We are drowning in debt, and we are stealing more than a hundred million more dollars from future generations with each passing hour. No bank robber in history can match that kind of theft.

"Yes, we will always need a safety net. There are many people out there that simply cannot take care of themselves. We certainly don't want to see anyone sleeping in the streets or starving to death.

"But if the number of people jumping on to the safety net continues to grow at the current pace, the net will break and it will not be available for any of us."

Republicans Set to Let US Default
Russia Today.com / January 14, 2013

Capitol

"To force the Obama administration to cut spending, some

House Republicans have advocated allowing the US to fall into default or shut down the government. By running out of money, the US would be unable to pay its bills as early as mid-February.

"'I think it is possible that we would shut down the government to make sure President Obama understands that we're serious,' House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers told Politico. 'We always talk about whether or not we're going to kick the can down the road. I think the mood is that we've come to the end of the road.'

"Gathering for private meetings, GOP leaders agreed that they consider it riskier to add to the US debt than undergo a default. Republican leadership officials said that more than half of their members are ready to let the country run out of money and shut down the government to have their voices heard."


Dishonest Money
By: James Cook Investment Rarities Inc.com Late December 2012

Dishonest Money
No federal plan can prevent the continuous
erosion and ultimate destruction of the
dollar.

"It's come to the point where the U.S. pays half its bills with newly created money. We're printing $550,000,000,000 a year. This debt monetization will ultimately destroy the value of the dollar. If you do not prepare for this likely outcome you could face destitution. Many will.

"We are inflating now more than ever. The government requires this money to pay for our exploding welfare state. Talk of cutting those expenditures is meaningless. We have passed the point of no return on entitlements."

Vatican Works To Stop Sunday Shopping In Italy
By: Alessandro Speciale / Religious New Service.com / December 19, 2013

Vatican and Sunday shopping in Italy
The Catholic Church, trade unions and
Italian small business associations have
joined forces in a bid to save Sundays
from shopping.

VATICAN CITY (RNS) -- The Roman Catholic Church, trade unions and small business associations have joined forces in a bid to save Sundays.

"In a bid to spur economic growth, outgoing Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti backed a new law that allows shops to stay open on the Sabbath.

"But Sunday traditions are strong in the European nation, and the change provoked strong resistance from religious and secular groups.

"The issue extends beyond Italy. In Brussels, dozens of religious groups -- including the Catholic Church -- unions and business associations from 27 countries have formed the 'European Sunday Alliance' to lobby the European Union to keep Sunday as a continent-wide day of rest, at least in principle.

"Johanna Touzel, the alliance's spokeswoman, said that setting Sunday aside is not necessarily a religious issue, and not discriminatory towards Jews and Muslims. 'We need one day when everyone can rest -- this is the origin of Shabbat. And in fact, even Muslim organizations support us.'

"For the Catholic Church, keeping Sundays free from shopping and work concerns is of larger consequence than the economy."

The Vatican's Twisted Priorities [Excerpts]
By: Giulio Meotti / YNet News.com / March 16, 2012

Fouad Twai
Fouad Twai

"In a special interview with Die Tagespost last week, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal, named by Pope Benedict to represent the Vatican in the Jewish State, declared that 'Israel's existence as such has nothing to do with the Bible.'

"Twal's position on Israel and the Bible has been embraced at the highest levels in the Catholic Church. The Vatican synod in 2010 declared that Israel cannot use the Biblical concept of a promised land or a chosen people. 'We Christians cannot speak about the Promised Land for the Jewish people', the synod's document said. 'There is no longer a chosen people. The concept of the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians.'

"Patriarch Twal responded enthusiastically to the agreement reached between Hamas and Fatah. He also denounced 'the Judaization of Jerusalem' and attacked Israel for 'trying to transform it into an only Hebrew-Jewish city, excluding the other faiths.' Elsewhere, Iraq's Archbishop, Louis Sako, asked to 'separate between Judaism and Zionism.' Indeed, in the most influential quarters of Christianity, Jews are still regarded as an apostate group not entitled to a sovereign state of its own."

Climate Change Goes to Extremes
By: Janet Raloff / ScienceNews.org / December 29, 2012

TEXT
A stable climate sets as many
record highs as lows in a typical year.

"Welcome to the new climate; it's keeping those Weather Channel reporters pretty busy with field reports on everything from a crop-slaying U.S. drought to windy deluges and coastal floods. Without question, 2012 ushered in wild and worrisome weather across the planet. The year was among the 10 hottest on record.

"In 2012, most of the rest of North America began desiccating. By the end of August, moderate to extreme drought savaged almost two-thirds of the contiguous United States.

"From January through early December, the United States saw nearly 33,000 new record high temperatures. A stable climate sets as many record highs as lows in a typical year. But record hot days outnumbered record cold ones by about 5 to 1 during that period, in line with a trend of increasing highs relative to lows that has been going on since the 1980s."

Summary
End of the world predictions are abundant and many are unreliable. All we can surely do, is be watching the signs of the times and know and rejoice that redemption is drawing near. This new year (2013) draws us one year closer to the end and to the reward of the righteous.

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)
