‘Spot On’

by Darlinda McDonald

The Last Days was written in 1999 but is so relevant for today! Bill Rudge is ‘spot on’ as he reveals what’s ahead for the body of Christ, the apostate church, and the world.

We are living at the most exciting time in the history of the world. Our generation has the potential more than any other generation to see the fulfillment of Revelation. We have had false prophets. We have had wars and rumors of wars. We have had earthquakes, famines and pestilence. But never before in history have we seen such an increase in both intensity and frequency of these and many other signs that indicate Christ’s return is near. This book is an eye-opener. It will stir you to readiness.

Some topics are:

• Seven Mountain Peaks of Bible Prophecy
• Signs of the Times
• Mark of the Beast
• Global Society
• Unity of Religion
• Increasing Persecution
• Apostate Church
• Defeat of Antichrist
• God Has it All under Control
• Paradise Restored

Bill and BJ are in the process of updating and expanding this book on The Last Days. In the meantime, the 1990s edition is available free of charge upon request or as an e-book at https://billrudge.org/last-days-e-book.

You Are Being Watched

by Bill Rudge

Pause for a moment and think about all the new devices and technologies – vehicles, televisions, cell phones, computers, surveillance gadgets, etc. – infused with microphones, cameras and artificial intelligence. Face scanners, smart phones, smart homes, eyelid-tracking car dashboard cameras, camera-equipped drones. Devices that see, hear and track the people they encounter.

In spite of many privacy scandals and security breaches, people are getting more accustomed to everyday uses of surveillance technology. The following are excerpts from the article, “At gadget show, surveillance is in – and in a big way” by Matt O’Brien, AP Technology Writer, in the January 7, 2020 Sharon Herald:

All these talking speakers, doorbell cameras and fitness trackers come with the promise of making life easier or more fun, but they’re also potentially powerful spying tools.

Someone wants to know where you are and what you are doing, saying, watching, listening to or buying. Eventually, this technology will be used to monitor and control virtually everything about you. Sounds strangely similar to the total surveillance, monitoring and control that will one day be enforced:

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name (Revelation 13:16, 17).
