Here are the Prophetic Headlines for 5.9.2. They include the past week’s headlines which reflect what the Bible states will happen in the last days. It appears that our country along with the rest of the world is spiraling down the drain into the sewer of Satan’s making. The only thing that keeps me anchored is knowing that God is in control, even though it may appear that He is not.
My purpose for gathering the week’s headlines is to track how close we are to Christ’s literal return to earth for the second time. Moreover, all one needs to do to determine this is to review the prophecies in the Bible regarding the end of the age just prior and match up the headlines around the world. Keep in mind, however, before His return life will literally become hell on earth.
This past week’s headlines are overwhelming with the evidence of close we are.
According to the Word of God after the Rapture of the Followers of Christ, the world will be begging for a savior. Having rejected the true Savior they will readily accept this man who appears to have all the right answers. This man is THE Antichrist. He will promise peace but will actually be powered by Satan to do Satan’s bidding.
Perilous Times Will Come
“But know this, that in the last days Perilous Times Will Come. from such people turn away!” A reading of the Scriptures in Matthew 24, 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and Romans 1:28-32 will blow you away. While the description listed of what mankind will be like at the end is evident in every generation we see now this listing as an “every day in your face” occurrence. Jesus called them birth pains.
At this moment all the groundwork is in place. Destruction and chaos and many other signs are converging. Like a woman ready to give birth, the baby’s head is crowning and there will only need to be one more push to birth the horrible time called the Tribulation.

Prophetic Headlines Declaring the End of Days is Upon Us
Blasphemers, Unholy, God Haters Who Reject God and His Word
I will tell you right now that this nation as a whole is doomed for judgment. There will be no turning back to God as a nation. Consider the following from Isaiah 1:4-7; 16-20.
Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the Lord, They have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward.
5 Why should you be stricken again? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faints. 6 From the sole of the foot even to the head, There is no soundness in it, But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, Or soothed with ointment.
7 Your country is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire; Strangers devour your land in your presence; And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, 17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.
18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; 20 But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
For the first time in years, no prayer service would be conducted at the U.S. Capitol as one evangelical leader from a Christian group was reportedly denied use of the venue. According to Christian Headlines, after his request to host this year’s National Day of Prayer at the Capitol building on Thursday, May 6, 2021, was refused, the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, said that “free speech is in danger today” in America.
“It is deeply troubling for the first time in 70 years, there will not be a public prayer service at the United States Capitol Building on the National Day of Prayer,” he said. “Every American needs to be asking the question, ‘How is it possible to have public prayer prohibited at the Capitol on the National Day of Prayer?’-especially when it is a national observance designated by Congress.”…
When your leaders snub God and the people are silent… there is more than “free speech in danger”…
Prophetic Headlines – Deception Increasing
“4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4-5 NKJV)
The Globalists are Setting the Stage for the Antichrist
Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum among others of the uber-rich is spearheading The Great Reset. This is just a new name for the depopulation agenda known as the UN Sustainable Development; ID2020; Agenda 2030. Covid 19 was an ingenious plan of theirs planed many years ago. See the proof here.

Deceptions – Prophetic Headlines of the Biden Administration
The Left-Wing Putsch – American Thinker
We are in a dire and extreme condition as a country, where one of our two major parties is moving toward a total power-grab and a re-directing of our entire system of government. The left is positioning itself and has made significant headway already to control all branches of government in perpetuity.
Our government is under siege. The Democrats do not have goodwill. The freedom of the people is at stake. Not only Israel, but the entire USA is threatened as never before by the Democrats, who have yielded to the far left. Truman did not yield to the left led by Henry Wallace in 1948, but in 2020, Pres. Joe Burdensome signed a formal pact with Sen. Bernie Sanders last summer before the election. In this writer’s opinion, that 110-page document was the tipping point, where the Democrats became the Democratic Communist Party of America (DCPA)… READ MORE

How the U.S. Government Keeps Experimenting on Its own Citizens – VAccine Impact – The U.S. government, in its pursuit of so-called monsters, has itself become a monster. This is not a new development, nor is it a revelation. This is a government that has in recent decades unleashed untold horrors upon the world—including its own citizenry—in the name of global conquest, the acquisition of greater wealth, scientific experimentation, and technological advances, all packaged in the guise of the greater good.
Mind you, there is no greater good when the government is involved. There is only greater greed for money and power. Unfortunately, the public has become so easily distracted by the political spectacle out of Washington, DC, that they are altogether oblivious to the grisly experiments, barbaric behavior, and inhumane conditions that have become synonymous with the U.S. government…READ MORE
The “Vaccine” Deception Prophetic Headlines
Prayer rally at site of Moloch worship to prevent ‘sacrificing children to covid vaccine’ – (ISRAEL365 NEWS) – A mass prayer rally is scheduled for Thursday in Jerusalem. The event’s location is overlooking the Hinnom Valley (Gehenom) which is where Canaanites and wayward Israelites used to sacrifice children to Moloch. The Hinnon Valley is also known as the Gehenom Valley – the Hebrew word for ‘hell.’
The genocide continues through the vaccines, as the CDC scrambles to deceive the public – In just a few months, the CDC has disclosed 118,902 adverse reactions and 3,848 deaths following covid-19 vaccination. Since its inception, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has never seen such an enormous spike in vaccine injury reports. Since December 2020, the total deaths recorded following experimental COVID injections is more than the recorded deaths for all vaccines observed in the past 15 and a half years…

Is Your ‘Woke Credit Score’ High Enough…
…to Keep You From Being Denied Service by Major Corporations? – Epoch Times Commentary – America is no longer a country being divided between conservative and progressive, between Republican and Democrat. It’s now being divided between the “woke” and the “non-woke.” And thus far, the woke appear to be gaining the upper hand.
To hear the woke tell it, the United States is a country filled to the brim with racism, sexism, transphobia, and just about every other evil -ism in the lexicon. The woke culture, or as my friend Evan Sayet calls it in his recent book, “The Woke Supremacy,” has moved on from using celebrities and key sports figures to promote their agenda to attempting to force it on people by corporate fiat.
While I believe citizens are having their rights to free speech and association violated by these woke corporations, it may prove too costly to try to break down their legal protections with expensive litigation that could last for years. A far better strategy could be for American patriots to go around them, not to fight them directly…READ MORE

Israel’s Prophetic Headlines to Note
Jerusalem enters anniversary of 6-day-War with worst violence since its liberation: ‘A battle for the Temple Mt’
Dubbed the TikTok Intifada, a wave of violence began to build in Jerusalem last month when young Arabs began attacking Israelis, targeting the visibly religious, and posting videos of the attacks on the popular app. The violence spread amidst inaccurate Arab claims that the Israeli government was restricting Muslim access to the Temple Mount when, in fact, Israeli police were enacting measures to manage foot traffic by placing barricades in front of the square leading to the Damascus Gate, a procedure that has been practiced for over a decade. The police responded by removing the barricades. This was seen as an act of surrender and the violence increased. The violence reached a peak on Friday, the last Muslim sabbath of Ramadan, as 90,000 Muslims ascended the Temple Mount and riots broke out with chants of “Bomb, Bomb Tel Aviv.”
