In July 2018, Israel had several small earthquakes that raised an alarm for a possible “big one” and brought to question the preparedness of Israel for this event. 2 articles made an estimate as to the damage and loss that may come from a large earthquake at 7,000 people killed, mirroring Revelation 11:13 of a great earthquake that will kill 7,000 people in Israel.
As the world advances in human-like AI technology and strives towards universal "digital identities", we seem to be headed towards a future dominated by AI and ruled by those who hold their citizen's personal data.

The dead sea is one of the world's saltiest bodies of water with a salinity of 34.2%, it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean making it a very harsh environment where plants and animals can't flourish or even survive.

A much needed article for both skeptics of the bible and followers of Christ who are “asleep”. Don’t just listen to me and your Christian neighbor down the street, research this stuff for yourself. Test these things. If people are saying prophecy is being fulfilled, don’t just dismiss it but look into it. See if there’s truth to what they’re saying, and if not, you know how to better weed through the lies and misconceptions.
Bible prophecy is often either avoided by Christians and the church or mocked by non-Christians. Does it only have to do with God's wrath and the "end of the world" or is there more to it?
