Dear Ron,

 December 29 - Sunday Is World Day of Peace: Pope Says Non-Violence Can Be Style of Politics
 Article: Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:
 
While Pope Francis is calling for world peace and religious unity, the Bible foretells a times of global unrest and war. While it may be a noble effort by a man to be in the forefront as a peacemaker, the Bible teaches there will never be peace until the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ returns.

At the beginning of this New Year, I offer heartfelt wishes of peace to the world's peoples and nations, to heads of state and government, and to religious, civic and community leaders. I wish peace to every man, woman and child, and I pray that the image and likeness of God in each person will enable us to acknowledge one another as sacred gifts endowed with immense dignity. Especially in situations of conflict, let us respect this, our "deepest dignity",[1] and make active nonviolence our way of life. This is the fiftieth Message for the World Day of Peace. In the first, Blessed Pope Paul VI addressed all peoples, not simply Catholics, with utter clarity. "Peace is the only true direction of human progress - and not the tensions caused by ambitious nationalisms, nor conquests by violence, nor repressions which serve as mainstay for a false civil order".

 December 27 - Circle January 15th: 70 Nations Will Gather In Paris To Discuss The Creation Of A Palestinian State
 Article: Israel And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
 
The pressure from the world to force Israel out of their own land and hand it over to become a Palestinian State continues to intensify. It is becoming clearer by the day that the world hates Israel which is exactly what the Bible states it will be like in the Last Days of time. However, for those who read the Bible, the God of the Bible is also the God of Israel. The world is headed for some very exciting times.

On January 15th, representatives from 70 different countries will gather in Paris, France for an unprecedented global conference.  The stated goal of this conference is to promote a "two-state solution" as the way that lasting peace will be brought to the Middle East.  In Israel, there is a tremendous amount of concern that whatever is agreed upon at this conference will immediately be used as the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that would permanently divide the land of Israel and create a Palestinian state.  But things would have to move very rapidly in order for that to happen, because Barack Obama's time in the White House comes to an end on January 20th, and Donald Trump has already made it exceedingly clear that he would never support such a resolution.

 December 29 - A crash course in Miracles 101
 Article: Signs And Wonders

Comment from UTT:
 
This article gives a good understanding of what the Catholic Church teaches about miracles. While the Bible is full of miracles that are really miracles, it seems that Catholicism has added many more in order to attract the faithful. The problem is, the Bible also warns about "lying signs and wonders" that will deceive many in the Last Days. The miracles that are being added to the canon of scripture, fit into that category.

What do a grilled cheese sandwich and the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe have in common? Both bore what appeared to be images of Mary. One was determined to be authentically miraculous, the other was not. Not to spoil any secrets, but it's not Our Lady of the Grilled Cheese that converted Mexico and continues to draw millions of people on pilgrimage every year. But have you ever wondered just how the Church determines the bogus from the divinely appointed?

 December 29 - Trump Inauguration to Feature Prayer of Prosperity Preacher Paula White Who 'Secured His Calling'
 Article: Ecumenical Movement - Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:
 
While President elect Trump has done many controversial things on his way to the presidency, choosing "faith leader" Paula White to be among the ecumenical selection of leaders at his inauguration is quite amazing. Paula White, Franklin Graham and Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan, head the list of whose-who in the race to bring back the separated brethren to the Mother of All Churches located in Rome. We will be watching this alliance with an open mind, but for now let it be known, keep your eyes on politics joining hands with religion for the cause of peace. If this sounds familiar to you, read the Bible with an update on end times current events.

Prominent Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Franklin Graham, and prosperity preacher Paula White will be among the ecumenical selection of faith leaders who will present prayers and readings at Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony next month, the inaugural committee announced on Wednesday.

 December 28 - Volcano Activity Strengthening Around The World
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
 
Is it just a coincidence that volcanic activity around the world is on the increase at a time when many Bible prophecies are being fulfilled? Is it possible that God is warning of what is soon to happen? The Bible foretells a time in the future where everything that can be shaken will be shaken. If I were an unbeliever, I would be paying more attention to what is happening. If you are listening to Rick Warren and others pastors who are "toning down" Bible prophecy or rejecting it all together, then read the Bible for yourself.
 

Volcanoes Campi Flegrei in Italy, Sakurajima in Japan, Pavlof in Alaska, PopocatÚpetl in Mexico and Iturrialba in Costa Rica among others showed signs of reawakening in the last semester of 2016, sounding the alarm among the scientist community that warns about a chain of imminent eruptions.

 December 30 - Mark Zuckerberg says he's no longer an atheist, believes 'religion is very important'
 Article: Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:
 
In previous articles and commentaries we posted in 2016, we pointed out that Facebook appears to help link the world together with the technology that will help set up a global system for financial transactions. Zuckerberg has also met with the Pope in private discussions. What if he now sees a way to promote religion on a global basis with the Pope? Of course this is speculation, but I think it is worth gathering more facts.
 
The founder of Facebook has found religion, it seems, according to a cheery holiday message he posted on the social network he created. On Christmas Day, Zuckerberg indicated in a Facebook status that he was "celebrating Christmas." "Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from Priscilla, Max, Beast and me," he wrote, naming his wife, daughter and dog. Then a commenter asked him: Aren't you an atheist?

 January 3 - Vatican calls for 'central World Bank' and 'global authority'
 Article: One World Government

Comment from UTT:
 
This article makes the book of Revelation and the book of Daniel come alive. When the Vatican begins directing a global economy as well as the promotion of a global religion for peace, the 666 plan is just around the corner. How much more does the Vatican have to do before people who profess to be Bible believing "purpose-driven" Christians will stand up? Rather than their obsession with ecumenism and joining hands with Rome, it is time to sound the alarm.
 
The Vatican has called for the establishment of a "global public authority" and a "central world bank" to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in controlling the masses.

 January 4 - NASA warns two asteroids OR comets are HURTLING towards Earth
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
 
Scientists are predicting that objects such as asteroids or comets are headed in the direction of the earth. It is also a fact that asteroids and comets have hit the earth in the past and caused global destruction. The Bible gives us insight into when this happened and why it happened in the past. The Bible also gives us insight into when it will happen in the future and why it will happen. Unbelievers scoff at the Bible. For certain when Bible prophecy is fulfilled no one will be scoffing then.
 
Our planet is in danger of two unidentified objects that could be asteroids or comets. Two objects are currently hurtling towards Earth's orbit and will come close to Earth in January and February.
 
One of the bodies is a comet known as C/2016 U1 NEOWISE, which was first discovered by Nasa's NEOWISE mission - the asteroid hunting project - in October last year, is set to reach its closest point on January 14. According to Nasa's Paul Chodas, the comet "has a good chance of becoming visible through a good pair of binoculars, although we can't be sure because a comet's brightness is notoriously unpredictable."
