The Video That Everyone Will See

The Internet has become a means of communication that has not only surpassed traditional newspapers, radio and television, but has actually devoured them. All of those older (and increasingly archaic, in their original form) news mediums now have transformed versions of themselves online - where they will eventually be found exclusively, if they wish to survive. For many people, eventually all people, the Internet is where the "news" will be found - live and raw, without, as has been the case before our time, a relative few "news editors" deciding what all of humanity will be permitted to see or hear, based upon whatever political or commercial pressures that manipulated them. In the end time, no one will be able to control the news (as is already the case) because everyone will have the technical means to show what they see to the whole world. With the personal video capability that the Internet has made possible, the eyes of any one person can now be the eyes of all of humanity.

Prophecy describes the key events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ as such that everyone shall see them happening, live. It refers not only to those who are where the events occur, but "all nations," everywhere, everyone, will see events happening in Jerusalem, and everywhere else, as they happen. That could only now be accomplished by online video.

The martyrdom, death and resurrection of Christ's "two witnesses" (see The Prophets: The Two Witnesses) will be video that no one will miss. Even their dead bodies will have "live coverage" for over three days i.e. "they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half."

"11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven." (Revelation 11:3-13 KJV)

"They of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half"

The "abomination of desolation" (as committed by the "beast" and his "great false prophet," the Papacy) will happen at the same time as the death of the two witnesses (see How Long Will 'The End Time' Last?). We know that because the one and only return of Christ is plainly stated to happen immediately after both of those events have happened. Christ warned His people that if they are in Jerusalem to flee the city as soon as they see it happen i.e. "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation ... Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains." At that time, amidst all of the false christs and antichrists (including the one who blasphemously claims to be the "vicar of Christ" i.e. sitting in place of Christ), "then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

The abomination of desolation

"24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation [see Abomination of Desolation - Where?], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him understand: 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.

24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east [see Why Did They Face East?], and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light [see The Blood Moon Prophecy], and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect [see Those Who Won't Sleep] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24:15-31 KJV)

While the return of Christ itself will also be on video, that culminating part of those prophetic events won't have to be, for everyone to see it with their own eyes. As stated above, gathering of his true Church will happen "from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." It isn't just going to be a straight-in from space landing in Jerusalem; the LORD is going to orbit, at least once around, with power and glory, for all to see.

"19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge [see Moriah: Separating The Wheat From The Chaff] and make war [see The Coming World Dictator]. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron [see Worthy Is The Lamb]: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone [see The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?]. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." (Revelation 19:11-21 KJV)

Fact Finder: Is there a recording of everything that everyone has ever done? Is there a "video" of each person's entire life that everyone else is going to see?

This Day In History, May 12

1096: Before leaving on the First Crusade (the "Crusades" were wars by Roman Catholics against Muslims for control of "the Holy Land"), Count Emich von Leiningen and his army swept through their own German homeland, murdering thousands of Jews, whom they declared "murderers of Christ" (see Hate Jews? and 'His Blood Be On Us And Our Children'). When Emich arrived in the town of Worms (the English rendering of the German Vorms), the town's Roman Catholic bishop tried to protect the Jewish population, but the Crusaders overran his palace and slaughtered about 500 people who had taken shelter there. Another 300 were killed over the next 2 days. The graves of the massacre victims can still be seen at the Jewish Cemetery at Worms.

1310: 54 Knights Templars were burned at the stake as heretics in France. Established during the Crusades to protect pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land, this military order came into increasing conflict with Rome until Clement V officially dissolved it in 1312 at the Council of Vienna.

1820: Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, was born in England.

1870: Canada bought Manitoba from the Hudson's Bay Company and made it a Canadian province.

1926: Norwegian Roald Amundsen, Italian Umberto Nobile and Lincoln Ellsworth of the U.S. crossed the North Pole in the airship Norge.

1932: The body of the kidnapped son of Charles and Anne Lindberg was found in a wooded area of Hopewell, New Jersey.

1937: King George VI of Britain was crowned at Westminster Abbey in London. Princess Elizabeth, today Queen Elizabeth II, became heir to the throne.

1949: The Berlin Airlift ended when the Soviet blockade was lifted. The airlift began on June 26 1948.

1965: West Germany and Israel exchanged letters establishing diplomatic relations.

1975: As U.S. military involvement in Vietnam came to an end, Cambodia seized the U.S. merchant ship Mayaguez.

1982: An "ultraconservative" Spanish priest with a bayonet attempted to assassinate Pope John Paul II during a procession in Fatima, Portugal. The priest claimed that the Pope was an "agent of Russia" who was destroying the Church of Rome with liberal reforms.
