The Missing Dimension in News

During the last few weeks the news has been full of conspiracy theories, some of which are based on facts… some are pure fiction, while others defy the imagination, but they all tend to point to great problems for mankind in the very near future. Here are some samples, starting with the recent “ ominous blood moon”:

Eclipse 2019 WARNING:
Blood Moon Is Proof Of ‘God’s Final Hour’ - End Of The World SHOCK

“Evangelical preacher Paul Begley, from West Lafayette in Indiana, US, warned the end of the world will come sooner and quicker than expected. The firebrand preacher warned today’s total lunar eclipse is one of the many prophetic signs said to precede the second coming of Jesus Christ. These apocalyptic signs, which pastor Begley said are unfolding before his very eyes, include Blood Moons, earthquakes and typhoons. Pastor Begley said: ‘It’s coming so fast, it’s unbelievable, but I still can’t tell you the day or the hour.’

‘But I can tell you this, God’s got a final hour.’ Pastor Begley said: ‘God’s final hour is coming, folks, and there is no stopping it’.” (

Blood Lunar Eclipse Will Spark ‘GREAT WAR’ In Middle East

The “Blood Moon” came – and went – and we are all still here. However, this next item is based on facts – the Middle East is near to war… so it sounds more convincing.

“A Super Blood Moon eclipse this month will usher in a devastating conflict across the Middle East as Israel’s enemies besiege the country on all sides, according to an ancient biblical prophecy. Some observers believe a new Great War, starting in the Middle East and involving Israel, is specifically predicted by the biblical prophecies.” (

Nostradamus 2019 prediction:
Donald Trump ASSASSINATION, War And Hard Brexit

Regarding Nostradamus – keep the following in mind:

“Another point which comes up again and again is that it is almost impossible to use Nostradamus to actually predict events. The predictions usually only make sense in hindsight. It is far too easy to predict ‘there will be earthquakes, floods, famine’. What distinguishes Nostradamus is the accuracy of his ‘hits’ when viewed in the rear view mirror.(

Hindsight is 20/20 vision. Prophecy is revealing the future – before it happens! Note in the following article that the events “predicted” are guesses – but they could be true.

“According to the psychic expert, Nostradamus warned of an assassination attempt on Mr Trump, armed conflict in the Middle East and renewed relations with his Russian counterpart between 2019 and 2020.

But critics claim Nostradamus’ published prophecies are too vague to be considered genuine and require a strong dose of hindsight to draw conclusions. Brian Dunning, the author of the Skeptoid podcast, said: ‘Nostradamus’ writings are exploited in a number of fallacious ways’.” (

Baba Vanga (who many claim predicted 9/11 and Brexit) makes 2019 predictions - and EU should worry

Baba Vanga and Nostradamus are not in agreement. Nostradamus has a President Trump assassination attempt while Baba Vanga predicts an assassination attempt on Russian president Vladimir Putin.

“Baba Vanga, the blind mystic who many claim predicted 9/11, Brexit and the rise of ISIS, had three major predictions for 2019. The Bulgarian peasant, who correctly predicted that the 44th president of the US would be African-American, has predicted an European Economic collapse, a tsunami will wipe out parts of Asia and Russia will be hit by a giant meteorite.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has also been warned to watch his back as Baba predicted there will be an assassination attempt on his life in 2019…” (

A Woman Warned…

Melissa Tabor claims to have had visions showing an East Coast Tsunami destroying Florida, a New Madrid Earthquake hitting Ohio, and the nuclear destruction of US Cities…

“Is America heading for a period of great judgment? Literally dozens of men and women of God have seen that a massive tsunami will strike the east coast, and that it will hit Florida particularly hard.

Secondly, the earthquake in Ohio that she is describing would be right along the New Madrid fault zone.

…and a future nuclear attack on the United States.” (

Rise In Mysterious ‘TR-3B UFO Sightings’ Sparks PANIC Over ‘Top-secret US Military Plans’

Another “old faithful” - the UFO, makes an appearance. Interesting to note that while there have been thousands of UFO sightings, we have yet to see a genuine sharp, in focus photograph!

“There has been a shocking rise in alleged TR-3B triangular UFO sightings across the world - with the most recent footage showing the bizarre aircraft close to a US airbase in Ohio. Experts fear that there ‘is something going on’ amid concern over top-secret US military experiments or the involvement of extraterrestrials.” (

Nibiru PROOF? Scientists ‘Uncovered Planet X’ After Finding Heat 50 Billion Miles Away

As the following article from NASA points out, there seems to be no risk of this planet coming anywhere near earth – if in fact it exists at all.

“Caltech researchers have found mathematical evidence suggesting there may be a ‘Planet X’ deep in the solar system. It may take between 10,000 and 20,000 Earth years to make one full orbit around the Sun.” (

“The Nibiru cataclysm is said to be a future disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large unknown planet – which many say will take place in the early 21st century. Believers in the doomsday event usually refer to the object involved as Planet X or Nibiru, with countless predictions over a collision with Earth surfacing over the years.” (

Asteroid Spike: Earth COULD Be Caught In Shock Crossfire, Warns New Study

“Earth may be caught in the crossfire of a massive Asteroid Spike, with the rate of impact speeding up, scientists have warned in a new study, just days after a 170ft object narrowly missed the planet.

On Tuesday, an asteroid dubbed by NASA 2019 AG7, flashed by Earth, missing by just one million miles – a tiny distance in galactic terms. It was discovered barely two weeks earlier, on New Year’s Day. The object spotted exploding over Chelyabinsk in Siberia in 2013 was similar in size.” (

UFO Seen Near ISS - Alien Hunters Say Space Station Used As Meeting Place For Aliens

This one stretches the imagination somewhat! Just show us a sharp clear photo… not just flashing lights!

“Two UFOs were seen hovering outside the International Space Station (ISS), leading some to the bizarre conclusion that ALIENS are boarding the ISS. The ISS is being used for [aliens] and humans to interact and NASA is refusing to disclose the information. This is according to conspiracy theorists who spotted two bright lights hovering around the ISS during a NASA live feed.” (

Four UFO Sightings At Yellowstone Supervolcano Spark Claims Of ‘Alien Tourists’

After using the international space station as a meeting point, we are now to believe that they are “alien space tourists”!

“A spate of UFOs have been seen hovering over Yellowstone supervolcano leading conspiracy theorists to believe it is a hotspot for alien activity. The Yellowstone National Park has long been a hotspot for alien enthusiasts, with sightings regularly reported there.” (

Time Travel Proof

There have been quite a few time travellers in the news – all with different views of the future… perhaps the headline should read… “Time travel spoof”!

“A mysterious man, who claims to be a former employee of the UK Government, has announced he travelled to the year 2365 after being offered €200,000 by Whitehall to learn about the future and how to make it better. Commenting on the people he met during his six-day visit, the man noted numerous life forms coexisted. He said: ‘I remember seeing robots, humans and what appeared to be aliens. I don’t know if they were genetically modified humans or if they were aliens - but I remember seeing strange creatures with large eyes and almond-shaped heads’.” (

UFO seen near Mexico volcano is Proof of alien base - shock claim

IF aliens were to visit earth, they would almost certainly be superior in intelligence to us earthlings, and would surely realise that having a base in a volcano is not a good idea!

“A UFO was seen near Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano, leading some to believe aliens are using it as a base. YouTube user Kate Martin2016 quickly uploaded film to the video-sharing website, asking if what she saw was a genuine UFO or if there was a simpler explanation such as a bug. She wrote alongside the video: ‘Could be anything from a UFO to a bug. However, other conspiracy theorists are convinced it is a UFO and more so, is evidence that aliens are using the volcano as a base’.” (

Aliens ARE Out There! Harvard Astronomer Predicts FIRST CONTACT In Shock Claim

They simply have to role out a “professor” to push the idea that aliens exist. Note that the professor bases his ideas firmly on the theory of evolution.

“Humans will be in for a huge shock when – not if – we encounter aliens, according to one of the world’s top scientists. Speaking to German news outlet Der Spiegel, Professor Loeb said: ‘If you think about the history of humans, the perspective has changed as we have evolved — from a single individual to a family, a tribe, a country, and finally we even found other continents with people living there’.” (

This World Has No Understanding Of World Events!

Mr Armstrong made this observation over 50 years ago:

“This may sound incredible, but it’s true. Editors, newscasters, foreign correspondents do not understand the real meaning of the world news they report, analyze and discuss. Heads of government are utterly unaware of the true significance of the very world-shaking events with which they deal. They have no conception of where these events are leading. Incredible? Perhaps – but true!” ( The US and GB in Prophecy)

Why do they not understand what is going on in the world? Because they do not understand the “missing dimension!”

The Missing Dimension In News

People today do not understand the Spiritual dimension.

This world is ruled by Satan the Devil and his demons.

That’s what is revealed in the Bible!

Here is what Jesus Christ had to say about Satan… while talking to the religious leaders of His day…

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.(John 8:44)

…hence today’s false news… filled with lies!

Satan Is The God Of This World

“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe.” (2 Corinthians 4:4, New Living Translation)

Having blinded the whole world – he has also deceived them…

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation 12:9, New Living Translation)

He commands the powers of the unseen world…

“You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil — the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.” (Ephesians 2:2, New Living Translation)

Mr Armstrong explained how Satan broadcasts:

“…human nature was NOT created in us by GOD – was NOT born in us. It has been injected into humans by the ‘prince of the POWER OF THE AIR,’ Satan, who is so powerful that he surcharges the air with his morbid attitude of gloom, resentment, rebellion, selfishness, vanity, strife. Satan broadcasts in self-centered attitudes, and the ‘human’ spirit in every human is tuned in on his wavelength! Thus Satan is now actually WORKING IN the people of this disobedience (Ephesians 2:2).” ( The Good News – December 18, 1978)

Once we realise how Satan works, then we can better understand what we are up against!

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12-14, New Living Translation)

So all these “predictions” go out on Satan’s broadcast, causing fear in some people, but causing others to shrug… and get on with their lives. So when a real warning comes, they will not be ready to react.

Nations Run By Satan And His Demons

Back in the time of Daniel, we see warfare in the spirit realm. The archangel Gabriel explained to Daniel…

“I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia.” (Daniel 10:12-13, New Living Translation)

“He replied, ‘Do you know why I have come? Soon I must return to fight against the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia, and after that the spirit prince of the kingdom of Greece will come’.” (Daniel 10:20-21, New Living Translation)

Now We Can Start To Understand Today’s News!

This last year has seen the situation in the world deteriorate rapidly. Now we can understand why. Satan knows that Jesus Christ is soon to return, and remove him from his position as the god of this world.

Satan is very angry! He is preparing ALL the nations of the world to fight Christ at His return. Notice Revelation 13:7:

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and nations.(Revelation 13:7)

Revelation 18:23 tells us that…

“for by thy sorceries were ALL nations deceived.” (Revelation 18:23)

We as God’s people must be extra careful right now, as these attitudes can affect us – as well as the world!

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith.” (1 Peter 5:8-9, New Living Translation)

The Result Of Satan’s Broadcast

Satan broadcasts the attitudes that bring about aggression, gloom, resentment, rebellion, and strife that fill our news today.

Threats of war between China and Taiwan… between China and India… between India and Pakistan… between Israel and Iran… the list goes on and on.

Then there is social strife, broken homes, feral children, mass shootings, drug addiction, mass abortion… this is a very unhappy world!

Then there is political strife… in Britain regarding Brexit… in the US, with the Democrats trying to get rid of the duly elected President… in Europe, with France and Germany trying to resurrect the Holy Roman Empire… not forgetting the “Russian threat”!

“The Way Of Peace They Know Not…”

“They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace.

Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed. Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked .” (Isaiah 59:8-9, 14-15, New Living Translation)

We Have Been Given The “More Sure Word Of Prophecy!

We are warned of wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes and other “natural” disasters in Matthew 24:4–7 This is ongoing.

The Gospel preached to all nations… Matthew 24:14. This has been fulfilled – we witnessed it!

“…the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14, New Living Translation)

Then – the falling away, ongoing as of now!

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

The resurrection of the Holy Roman Empirewe are witnessing the birth of this right now in the news! Europe will only really unite after a serious crisis, which would seem to be a major worldwide financial collapse.

At some point in the near future, the daily sacrifices will start.

1290 days before the return of Christ, we see this event:

“And when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived. Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. Those in Jerusalem must get out, and those out in the country should not return to the city.” (Luke 21:20-21, New Living Translation)

Thirty days later, 1260 days before the return of Christ, the great tribulation starts. It begins with the Beast power attacking Britain and the USA ( The United States and Britain in Prophecy).

The Apostle Paul left us this warning:

“Now, dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered to meet him. Don’t be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun . Don’t believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, New Living Translation)

Patience And Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.(James 5:7-8, New Living Translation)
