 September 13 - North Korea warns USA: Prepare for 'GREATEST PAIN' ever in SHOCKING World War 3 threat
 Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars

Comment from UTT:
The Bible foretells of a coming war that will end all wars. While North Korea's threats to wipe out the United States and her allies may be considered an outrageous exaggeration, current events are leading in the direction that fulfills Bible prophecy. Couple this with the fact that North Korea is an ally of Iran who has vowed to wipe out Israel, we are indeed living in troubling times.
Pyongyang rejected a UN Security Council resolution to slap sanctions on North Korea following its sixth nuclear test and ramped up tensions with its latest threat sparking fears World War 3 could break out. A defiant North Korea "categorically rejected" the resolution, saying the United States was "fired up" for confrontation and would soon face the "greatest pain" it had ever experienced.

North Korea's ambassador, Han Tae Song, told the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva on Tuesday the US was "fired up for political, economic, and military confrontation". He said: "My delegation condemns in the strongest terms and categorically rejects the latest illegal and unlawful UN Security Council resolution."

 September 4 - More than half in UK are non-religious, suggests survey
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:

At one time in recent history Great Britain was a bastion for the Christian faith. A current survey indicates what has happened to the UK and where it is headed. It is interesting to note that Darwinism and the propagation of the theory of evolution originated in the UK. Is there a connection?

For the first time, more than half of people in the UK do not identify as religious, a survey suggests. Last year 53% of people described themselves as having "no religion", in a survey of 2,942 adults by the National Centre for Social Research. Among those aged between 18 and 25, the proportion was higher at 71%.

 September 11 - Discovery of Ancient Human-Like Footprints Challenges Evolutionary Narrative
 Article: Creation - Evolution

Comment from UTT:
Human footprints located in Crete were made in layers that evolutionary geologists claim were deposited 5.7 million years ago. Obviously this is a major problem to the theory of evolution. This article discusses the problem and offers a biblical solution. Is it possible the whole concept proposed by evolutionary geology to date the layers of the earth needs to be revised?
Scientists have discovered human-like footprints in Crete that, according to evolutionists, predate the origin of modern humans by more than one million years. According to evolutionary scientists, the ancestry of modern humans can be traced back to the 4.4-million-year-old Ardipithecus ramidus-an ape-like species that lived in Africa. Ardipithecus ramidus had ape-like feet, but evolutionists believe its descendants eventually learned to walk upright, leading to the development of bipedal humans. However, the recent discovery of ancient footprints on a European island calls the premise into question.

"Newly discovered human-like footprints from Crete may put the established narrative of early human evolution to the test," reported "The footprints are approximately 5.7 million years old and were made at a time when previous research puts our ancestors in Africa-with ape-like feet."

 September 14 - The Pitch: Microchips 'Make Life Easier'
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

Comment from UTT:
The realization of chip implants into the tissues of human beings for the purpose of personal identification is right on schedule. The question is no longer if it will happen, but when. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.
The mainstream media continues to push "biometric implants," tiny microchips upon which personal data is stored that are inserted under the skin, as a matter of convenience that is "something out of a science fiction movie."

Take, for instance, this new report from an Australian television station:

From opening doors to riding the bus and paying for lunch, subdermal microchips are the way of the future for people embracing a digital future.  Remi Baker and Mitch Hunter from PHD Media are two early adopters of the microchip technology.

"We don't need any ID cards, we don't need any pin codes, we don't need any access cards or anything so we can live a much freer life," Mr Hunter said.

The microchip, which is the size of a grain of rice, sits beneath the skin. Data from your bank card, LinkedIn profile or even your medical history is cloned on to the chip which is then implanted in the hand.

Using the same technology as tap and pay cards, the chip can be used to do anything that has been programmed on to the chip.

The report even suggests such implants can save lives, if a person has stored medical information on it.

 September 14 - In Orange County, bishop and pastor model Catholic/Evangelical ties
 Article: Bridges To Rome

Comment from UTT:
For years we have been documenting how Rick Warren's ecumenical agenda with Rome has been advancing. Skeptics need to read the following article. More important, for all Calvary Chapel pastors, this is a must read. Remember, Pope Francis has stated all religions including Christianity worship the same God. Is Bible prophecy being fulfilled?
There are all kinds of relationships among Catholics and Evangelicals in America, and one especially striking example is the friendship and partnership in Orange County, California between Bishop Kevin Vann and famed pastor Rick Warren. The two men pray for and with each other, they share the struggles in their life with each other, and have become partners in ministry.

[Editor's note: Ties between Evangelicals and Catholics in America come in all shapes and sizes, with one of the most striking flowering in Orange County, California, and a friendship and partnership between Bishop Kevin Vann and famed Evangelical pastor Rick Warren. Recently, Pia de Solenni, a lay Catholic theologian and chancellor of the Orange County diocese, spoke to both men about that friendship. The interview appears here with permission of the diocese.]
