Hello, John and Doves,
Stefen's post reminds me of something I said to a College-Career Bible Study one night back in 1985.
I said that as the time neared to the Rapture, many who did not believe would be seeking signs, that they might believe because of what they see. The only signs they will get will be seemingly ordinary stuff--like earthquakes and eclipses. For us who believe, all those signs were predicted to happen by God. Therefore, the very same stuff that seems ordinary (like just one of many ufo sightings) to most folk is most extraordinary to us who know what to look for.
It's like unbelievers can't see each tree (sign) for the forest (the sheer number of signs)--thus rendering what should appear to be an outstanding event as appearing to be statistically ordinary to the unaided psyche.
However, we believers are not overwhelmed by the size of the forest, because our focus is on each sign as it comes our way. We who live by faith receive in abundance what is sought by those who seek after signs.
Conclusion: A sign is not a sign unless it signifies something. Most events do not have intrinsic prophetic significance. A sign gets its significance from the Word of God. Therefore, one who rejects the Word of God is not able to recognize a sign in front of his nose.
If we, the Bride of Christ, are not all convinced of any particular prophetic truth [take your pick], how can we expect the world to brush aside "strong delusion" [2 Thessalonians 2:11] when it comes?
It is as it was written. Jesus said,
"To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them."
Mark 4:25 NLT

"Jerusalem UFO...What Does It Mean?"
I wanted to comment and shed light on a video I recently saw on youtube regarding an apparent ufo sighting over Jerusalem on Jan. 28, 2011 at 1am, and what it might mean.
Now for starts, I dont beleive in aliens or life from other planets...I personally believe these things belong to the spirit realm and are demonic in nature, as they usually instill fear or harm to the contactees, and also draws peoples attention away from God.
So looking at the videos it is obvious that this "ufo" wanted to be seen, afterall what ufo decends over the dome of the rock/temple mount of all places then puts on a show while tourists are walking around with cell cameras and camcorders. Were not talking about some slightly shiny object you can barely see flying over the sky in the middle of no where...this was a blatant manifestation of something, a bright light in plain sight descending over the temple mount complex in front of hundreds of tourists with camcorders.
There has to be something to this. As I was watching, I noticed that it took EXACTLY 9 seconds to descend...then once it stopped it took EXACTLY 23 seconds before it emmitted some sort of electric pulse...then from the electric pulse EXACTLY 1 second before it ascended. Then there were 4 red lights moving in the sky where it ascended followed by 1 small white flash at the end (you can only see that white flash in some videos).
Heres my interpretation: 9 seconds of descent is the 9th month, September. 23 seconds before electric pulse is 23 days. Now the 1 second after pulse to ascent is the (1) in 15. The 4 red lights plus the 1 last white light equals 5...So...9/23/15...all over the temple mount!!!
If this happened anywhere else I wouldnt think anything of it...but it happened in Jerusalem, over the temple mount complex...in front of everyone. I dont know if the date and time has any significance but maybe some of you other doves can shed light.
See it for yourself, there are multiple videos from multiple people recording it from multiple vantage points...it was meant to be seen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDJXg8o8CMQ <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDJXg8o8CMQ> count FROM flash/electronic pulse TO ASCENT...1 second, you can also see the 4 red lights in this clip. They keep on flashing but its the 4 same lights flashing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuuTVLS6eVg&feature=related <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuuTVLS6eVg&feature=related> in this video you can see that 1 flash at the very end...its at the right hand side clip.
What do you think about this???
