 December 6 - Pope Francis urges world leaders to respect UN position on Jerusalem
 Article: Israel And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
In this article we see how Pope Francis sides with the United Nations and the resolutions made by the United Nations against Israel. He advocates that Jerusalem not be declared the capital of Israel in spite of what the Bible and history have shown. From a biblical perspective we can expect turmoil will continue in the future. This will necessitate a plan for peace which will be a false peace plan.
With debate on the status of Jerusalem heating up in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognize the city as the capital of Israel, Pope Francis has urged international leaders to proceed with prudence and respect for current U.N. resolutions.

"My thought now goes to Jerusalem. In this regard, I cannot ignore my deep concern for the situation that has been created in recent days," the Pope said Dec. 6.

He issued a "heartfelt appeal" to the international community to ensure that "everyone is committed to respecting the status quo of the city, in accordance with the relevant Resolutions of the United Nations."

 December 13 - New FDA-approved "trackable" pill transmits information - it will tattle on you if you don't take your meds
 Article: One World Government

Comment from UTT:
Each day we discover that technology provides more and more ways to monitor and control the world's population. This article about "trackable" pills is another example.  The "big brother" scenario foretold by the Bible is obviously in the process of being set up.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a digital pill embedded with a sensor designed to inform physicians whether their patients are taking their medications. The federal approval marks a growing trend towards addressing drug non-adherence among patients, according to a New York Times report.

The pill, called Abilify MyCite, is a modified version of Otsuka Pharmaceutical's drug Abilify that is used in the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. It is equipped with a small tracking device developed by Proteus Digital Health. The new tracking pill works by transmitting a message from the sensor to a wearable patch, which then sends data to a mobile app to enable patients to monitor drug ingestion on their smartphone.

 December 10 - Evidence points to Bitcoin being an NSA-engineered psyop to roll out one-world digital currency
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

Comment from UTT:
Those who study Bible prophecy see the collapse of cash, as a means of making transactions and a replacement of global currencies with an electronic currency. This article suggests that the Bitcoin may bring about this transition. Whatever the case, it is only a matter of time when all global financial transactions will be done electronically.
I'm going to assume the readers who make it to this article are well informed enough that I don't have to go into the history of the global money changers and their desire for a one world currency. (If you don't yet understand the goal of the globalist banking empire and the coming engineered collapse of the fiat currency system, you're already about 5,000 posts behind the curve.)

With that as a starting point, it's now becoming increasingly evident that Bitcoin may be a creation of the NSA and was rolled out as a "normalization" experiment to get the public familiar with digital currency. Once this is established, the world's fiat currencies will be obliterated in an engineered debt collapse (see full article for the sequence of events), then replaced with a government approved cryptocurrency with tracking of all transactions and digital wallets by the world's western governments.

 December 13 - Israel Retaliates With Airstrikes as Hamas Announces Third Intifada
 Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars

Comment from UTT:
Hamas has announced a Third Intifada against Israel while other Arab nations have agreed that if the US embassy is moved to Jerusalem there will be an all out united war. These same countries have also ruled out that the United States as a peace maker in the region. Some have predicted that the head of the Catholic Church (the Pope) will play the role as a peace maker. Current events seem to line up with that scenario.
Hamas has announced the beginning of the third "intifada" a week after Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It didn't take long for Israel to respond. Hamas positions in the Gaza strip were targeted by Israeli Air Force strikes on Tuesday night, hours after a Palestinian rocket attack on Israeli territory. It was not immediately clear whether there were any casualties on the Palestinian side.

 December 7 - Human Testing Begins: Brain Implants To 'Change Moods Controlled By AI'
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
Transhumanism is the term used to define the attempt by mankind to control and advance human evolution by technological means. Consider the following statement taken from the article below:
Scientists hope the new implant will allow doctors and scientists are window into people's minds. This will also personalised treatments for people to better treat illnesses and regulate feelings. Dementia and Alzheimer's are also hoped to be treated using the implants.
Devices plugged into people's skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military's research division DARPA. These implants will use electronic pulses to alter the chemicals in people's brains in a process called "deep brain stimulation". This will then change people's moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy. Artificial intelligence in implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send - described by scientists as a "window on the brain".

 December 16 - Vatican issues new rules for relics in saint-making process
 Article: Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
No comment is required for this article. However, it is a must read for those who claim that the Roman Catholic faith is "true" Christianity.

The Vatican's saint-making office has updated its rules governing the use of relics for would-be saints, issuing detailed new guidelines Saturday that govern how body parts and cremated remains are to be obtained, transferred and protected for eventual veneration. The instructions explicitly rule out selling the hair strands, hands, teeth and other body parts of saints that often fetch high prices in online auctions. They also prohibit the use of relics in sacrilegious rituals and warn that the church may have to obtain consent from surviving family members before unearthing the remains of candidates for sainthood.
