We focus on prophecy each week for about five-minutes.
It’s more than a curiosity; it’s extremely practical. The apostle Paul said: “[know] the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11).
After discussing the last days, the apostle Peter said, “what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (Second Peter 3:11-12).
There are approximately 500 yet-to-be-fulfilled prophecies. Knowing what they say, we expect to see certain trends in the world. We’re not saying these trends are the fulfillment of prophecy – only that things seem to be unfolding just as you’d expect.
Jesus told us that the Last Days would “be like the days of Noah.” He specified what He meant when He said, “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage…” (Matthew 24:38).
In Genesis chapter six, the Bible describes the marriages Jesus was referring to:
Gen 6:2 …the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose…
Gen 6:4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
The “sons of God” were fallen angels, and they were marrying and mating with human women. Their offspring were called Nephilim. They are described, both in the Bible and in other literature of the time, as a race of cannibalistic giants.
Nephilim are mentioned many, many times in the Bible. One notable example: The Israelites refused to go into the Promised Land because the twelve spies saw Nephilim there, claiming the their soldiers looked like grasshoppers by way of comparison.
They weren’t just slightly taller men. They were agile warriors – described in other Bible passages as up to 15’ tall.
The fallen angels in Noah’s day were corrupting the human race by manipulating our DNA.
You would therefore expect folks to be seriously manipulating DNA… And they are – both in human beings, and in animals.
The latest article I came across was titled, The US Military Is Genetically Engineering New Life Forms To Detect Enemy Subs.
How do you detect submarines in an expanse as large as the ocean?
The U.S. military hopes that common marine microorganisms might be genetically engineered into living tripwires to signal the passage of enemy subs, underwater vessels, or even divers.
It’s one of many potential military applications for so-called engineered organisms.
Here’s how it would work: You take an abundant sea organism, like Marinobacter, and change its genetic makeup to react to certain substances left by enemy vessels, divers, or equipment. These could be metals, fuel exhaust, human DNA, or some molecule that’s not found naturally in the ocean but is associated with, say, diesel-powered submarines. The reaction could take the form of electron loss, which could be detectable to friendly sub drones.
On the human front, Paul Zehr is a University of Victoria neuroscientist. He is the author of, Chasing Captain America, in which he explores how we could make the super soldier a reality today.
According to his research, “several aspects of the super-soldier formula may be only a few years or decades away from reality.”
Read the Bible and this is the kind of Last Days genetic tampering news you’d expect.
As believers, we expect that Jesus could return at any moment.
Jesus promised He’d return to rapture His church – which entails the resurrection of the dead in Christ of the Church Age, then the translation from earth to Heaven of all living believers.
It is presented in the Bible as an imminent (any-moment) event.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, get ready, stay ready, and keep looking up. Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
