False Christs

False ("Lying") Signs and Wonders


PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE: God is omnipotent, and the Bible is full of miracles. From the creation of Adam and Eve, the 10 plagues leading to the Exodus, the dramatic "signs" given by the Old Testament Prophets, and those accomplished by Jesus and His disciples, Christian theology understands miracles to be a major theme of God's Word. Even in the daily life of believers, the smaller personal miracles of God's direction and gifts of love, wisdom, provision, and peace are to be expected. A special class of miracles, called "signs and wonders" are also recorded in the Scriptures, especially during the periods of new revelation of God's Word (The Pentateuch- First 5 books of the Bible, the Prophets, and the New Testament period). These were major, public miracles, given by God to prove that the words of the Prophets were true. Jesus told those of His generation, after they had seen so many mighty proofs of His miraculous powers, that no more signs would be given to them. Still, Christians often experience The Lord's mighty work in their lives, sometimes including healing. Even our prayer habits assume that God still does things that we would consider miraculous.

False prophets of the End Times will need false miracles to "validate" their authority and make non-believers fear them. Even in Moses' time the magicians in Pharaoh's court were able to apparently duplicate the first few of the plagues that Moses and Aaron performed.

Such counterfeit "signs and wonders" can be produced in several ways. The most obvious would be skillful illusions like those performed by the best of today's magicians.

Another type of false signs would be religious deception. Those who take the Bible literally have no problem believing in miraculous events, However, both then and now, there are spiritual imitators, who may be energized by demonic powers and psychological manipulation, such as mass hysteria, to "prove" that what they are doing is from God.

In our scientific age there is a third possibility for deceiving people. It is the use of technological deception. This could be accomplished through the use of little-known scientific inventions - the products of "black projects" by the government and other advanced technologies that are virtually unknown to the average person.

In His Olivet Discourse Jesus said,

At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Messiah!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. - Matthew 24:23-24

The Apostle Paul foretold the powers of the future "man of sin."

[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. - 2 Thessalonians 2:9

Perfect Storm Sandy, environment modification, environmental warfare

Oct. 29, 2012 - What is the cause of the deadly Hurricane Sandy?

Discussions are being held regarding whether this storm is human-made or human-triggered through environment modification or environmental warfare, a climate change storm, a coincidental 7-year deadly storm, or an Act of God

Among other theories, the article acknowledges the possibility that Hurricane Sandy has been steered into the Eastern U.S. Tracking sites have noted that the HAARP system (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), a "secret" weapons technology that transmits high frequencies into the atmosphere to control weather patterns, has caused unusually high frequencies in the region that many people believe can cause storms.

Chemtrails used for corporate profits, weapons and depopulation agendas

Oct. 11, 2012 - According to the movie, "What in the World are They Spraying" by Michael Murphy, many of the toxic substances being sprayed into our atmosphere, presumably to control global warming are actually making the situation worse. This process may occasionally be observed when one sees "chemtrails" in the sky. Experiments have been conducted for decades about cloud-seeding to control the weather. Like all technologies, this process can be used to damage or exploit others. Some of the chemicals used are arsenic, aerosol, aluminum, barium, depleted uranium, high levels of mercury, and many other toxic substances.

It's no wonder that allergies, asthma and even cancer rates have soared due to the mass poisoning of our population without our consent.

A New Age of Miracles

Sept. 22, 2012 - This is a balanced discussion of the biblical teaching about miracles as signs to encourage belief, and the current upsurge of real miracles and false miraculous claims. God does use "signs" to get people's attention, but the focus should be on Jesus, not on the miracles themselves.

They are not the substance of the kingdom; they are symptoms of the kingdom. The substance is Jesus, who suffered, died, and was buried, then was raised again to life.

Ahmadinejad Accuses the West of Destroying Iran's Rain Clouds

Sept. 12, 2012 - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that the West is using technology to deliberately destroy Iran's rain clouds. Low rainfall has produced drought conditions in more than three-quarters of the country. Ahmadinejad has previously accused Western nations of causing the clouds to produce heavy rains in their own countries, leaving rain shortages in the Middle East.

In July, Iranian vice president in charge of cultural heritage, Hasan Mousavi, similarly blamed the low rainfall that had plagued southern Iran as being part of a “soft war” launched by the West, the Fars News Agency reported at the time.

This could be accomplished through the use of little-known scientific inventions - the products of "black projects" by the government and other advanced technologies that are virtually unknown to the average person.

We are aware of some of these technologies, such as Chemtrails, the HAARP installations, Scalar Technology and Project Blue Beam.
