In Revelation, trumpets are symbols of a warning message. As we near the end expect warnings in many forms that the end is near and that people need to start thinking about eternal realities and make the right choices. Remember, "God is not willing that any should perish." (1 Peter 3:9)

Saber Rattling Continues -- Iranian Admiral: 'We Can Move a Vessel Within Three Miles of New York City' The Extinction Protocol.com / April 29, 2012
Iran could use a commercial vessel sailing under the flag of another country to approach the American shoreline to strike.
Iran -- An official of the Iranian military said last week that the country's navy has the ability to move a naval vessel within three miles of the East Coast of the United States. Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, speaking on Tuesday to students of the University of Yazd, Iran, at the anniversary of a failed U.S. military operation in April 24, 1980 (Operation Eagle Claw), said that 'The power of our naval forces is such that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York.'

Battle Plan for Iran 'Ready' -- US Envoy to Israel RussiaToday.com / May 17, 2012

"The Pentagon has a ready plan for a military attack on Iran, the American ambassador to Israel warned days before a key meeting over the controversial nuclear program of the Islamic Republic.
"Western countries and Israel are exerting pressure on Iran to stop uranium enrichment, saying that Tehran is secretly trying to build a nuclear bomb. Iran insists that its nuclear program is strictly civil.
"'It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force,' US Ambassador Dan Shapiro said in remarks about Iran aired by Israel's Army Radio on Thursday.
"'But that doesn't mean that option is not fully available -- not just available, but it's ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it's ready,' said Shapiro.
"The conflict is to be discussed in Baghdad on May 23, when envoys from the P5+1 group, which includes Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US, are to meet Iranian negotiators. The previous round of talks was held in Istanbul on April 14."
Jerusalem: the Bells of War Are Ringing By: Brad Macdonald / The Trumpet.com / May 17, 2012
"War is always imminent in Israel. The challenge is not in forecasting the conflict, but in anticipating when exactly it will happen, and more importantly, making sure we never grow deaf to the bells of war.
"While everyone remembers the Six-Day War, Krauthammer wrote, 'less remembered is that [on June 1, 1967] the nationalist opposition ... was for the first time ever brought into the government, creating an emergency national unity coalition' (emphasis added throughout). Four days later, the reason for Israel's hasty political consolidation became evident when a united and stable government ordered a deadly preemptive strike on Egypt's army.
"The formation of a national unity coalition was a precursor to war.
"On May 7, 2012, almost 45 years later to the day -- with Israel once again 'desperate and alone,' in a 'fearful, desperate' state -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emerged from midnight talks to suddenly and unexpectedly announce that he had formed the largest national unity government ever in Israel's short history.
"As in June 1967, Israel's government is today more united and stable than ever.
"Why now? Is it possible, as Krauthammer suggests, that war might soon erupt? 'War is not four days away, but it looms,' he wrote. 'Israelis today face the greatest threat to their existence -- nuclear weapons in the hands of apocalyptic mullahs publicly pledged to Israel's annihilation -- since May '67.'"
Buy Your Way to Heaven! The Catholic Church Brings Back Indulgences By: Jason Cochran / AOL Daily Finance.com / February 10, 2009
Karen Nassauer, left, and Octavia Andrade at church in Queens. Indulgences are being offered at churches in New York City.
"These days, you can get a deal on anything. Even salvation! Pope Benedict has announced that his faithful can once again pay the Catholic Church to ease their way through Purgatory and into the Gates of Heaven.
"Never mind that Martin Luther fired up the Reformation because of them.
"The New York Times reports that even though the church officially broke with the age-old practice -- you do something good, and the Church will help absolve you . . . The Catholic Church had technically banned the practice of selling indulgences as long ago as 1567."
"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)
