 February 5 - Experts warn of 'escalation' between Israel and Russia over Syria
 Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars

Comment from UTT:
The middle-east battleground that is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 38-39 continues to become more and more apparent. Keep your eyes on Russia, Iran and Syria.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week did not appear to resolve the two countries' differing objectives in Syria, and it remains unclear if the status-quo can continue. Russian jets increased their attacks in Syria on Monday, days after Syrian rebels shot down one of its jets.

Reported Israeli attacks against Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria and Lebanon must take into account the military presence of Russian forces in the country, which serve to prop up Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.

 February 5 - 'The Bible Has Caused So Much Damage': Rob Bell Like You Never Seen Him Before
 Article: Emerging Church

Comment from UTT:
For a number of years youth leaders in many evangelical churches promoted Rob Bell's books and DVD's as teaching tools and as part of the emerging church agenda. This article confirms Rob Bell's true beliefs and why there is a need to expose false teachers.

Rob Bell has sparked no shortage of controversy with views and proclamations that some believe are anti-Christian in nature.


And now fans and critics, alike, will have the chance to hear more from Bell, as he's the focus of a new documentary titled, "The Heretic." The film releases on March 1 on Amazon and on iTunes, as RELEVANT noted. The trailer for "The Heretic" quotes Bell saying a variety of things that are sure to attract attention. Here are just two bits:

"When I kept going into the Jesus teachings, it took me beyond a religion to what does it mean to be human. And I actually think Jesus would be absolutely mortified that somebody started a religion in his name."

"The Bible has caused so much damage    "

Bell took to his Facebook page on Thursday to note that he was approached a few years back by a filmmaker named Andrew Morgan. Morgan wanted to make a documentary about Bell's work and Bell obliged. "We have great respect for Andrew so we said yes and he began filming tours and RobCasts and events and interviews     I can't imagine just how much footage he captured," Bell said. "The result is a new film that he is preparing to release. It's called The Heretic."

 February 11 - Israel warns over Iran's presence in Syria after air strikes
 Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars

Comment from UTT:
The presence of Iranian forces in Syria has precipitated Israel to become more involved in the middle-east conflict that has the potential to bring about another world war. Obviously, these events line up with the scenario the Bible predicts will occur in the last days.
Israel issued stark warnings on Sunday over Iran's presence in neighbouring Syria after a confrontation threatened to open a new and unpredictable period in the country's seven-year civil war. Israel carried out major air raids in Syria on Saturday, including against what it described as Iranian targets -- the first time it had publicly acknowledged doing so since the war began.

 February 12 - A.I. will turn us into 'superhuman workers,' founder of secret Google X lab says
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
The world is being prepared for humans to be taken over by artificial intelligence. Technology plays a major role in setting up a global antichrist society that can be monitored and controlled.
Artificial intelligence (AI) tools will create "superhuman workers" who will be able to accomplish more alongside the new technology, a co-founder of Google's secret Google X laboratory told CNBC on Monday.

Sebastian Thrun left the search engine giant in 2014, and is now the chairman of online education firm Udacity and chief executive of Kitty Hawk, a flying car company backed by Alphabet CEO Larry Page. Speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai, Thrun talked up the potential of AI to free people up to do more creative jobs.
