And so it was that on the morn of the 666th Monday Night Football game in the course of mankind, Timothy Richard Tebow noticed this numerical oddity and took to the mount to declare his righteousness against the mark of the beast.
On the second Monday of October, Tebow took a respite from reading his papyrus playbook to declare his intentions for the eve: “Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight’s 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39.”
I’m down with Tebow’s religious beliefs and appreciate that he uses his forum to promote them, but I’m not sure what he was going for here. Does playing in a game number that’s identical to the mark of the beast worry him? Or is anything with the number 666 a good way to promote his faith?
The Bible verse Tebow references in the tweet says: “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Tebow mentions MNF‘s 666th game, generally implying that it’s tainted by the affiliation with the second beast of Revelation. Then he quotes a passage on how nothing can come between love. If my exegesis is correct (and I did get a C+ in freshman year Bible study at Wake Forest), Tebow’s tweet unintentionally reads like a roundabout diss of Howard Cosell and Jon Gruden.
Now that he plays for the Jets, we’re sure it’s also completely accidental that the Bible verse right before Romans 8:37-39 has to do with sheeps being led to the slaughter. source – USA Today
Fulfilling the prophetic word
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17

The day is here where technology exists that will help fulfill the prophecies of the book of Revelation from the holy bible. This is something that no generation in world history has ever been able to say. YOU are living in the time of the end…are you ready for what comes next?
From Technology Review: Broadcom has just rolled out a chip for smart phones that promises to indicate location ultra-precisely, possibly within a few centimeters, vertically and horizontally, indoors and out.
The unprecedented accuracy of the Broadcom 4752 chip results from the sheer breadth of sensors from which it can process information. It can receive signals from global navigation satellites, cell-phone towers, and Wi-Fi hot spots, and also input from gyroscopes, accelerometers, step counters, and altimeters. (NOTE: The Broadcom 4752 chip. When you add 4+7+5+2 you get 18. 18 divided is 6+6+6. Just saying…)
The variety of location data available to mobile-device makers means that in our increasingly radio-frequency-dense world, location services will continue to become more refined.
In theory, the new chip can even determine what floor of a building you’re on, thanks to its ability to integrate information from the atmospheric pressure sensor on many models of Android phones. The company calls abilities like this “ubiquitous navigation,” and the idea is that it will enable a new kind of e-commerce predicated on the fact that shopkeepers will know the moment you walk by their front door, or when you are looking at a particular product, and can offer you coupons at that instant.
The integration of new kinds of location data opens up the possibility of navigating indoors, where GPS signals are weak or nonexistent.
Broadcom is already the largest provider of GPS chips to smart-phone makers. Its new integrated circuit relies on sensors that aren’t present in every new smart phone, so it won’t perform the same in all devices. The new chip, like a number of existing ones, has the ability to triangulate using Wi-Fi hot spots. Broadcom maintains a database of these hot spots for client use, but it says most of its clients maintain their own.
A company that pioneered the construction and maintenance of these kinds of Wi-Fi hot spot databases is SkyHook Wireless. Skyhook CEO Ted Morgan is skeptical that Broadcom can catch up to his company’s software-based system allowing for precise indoor location. “Broadcom is just now talking about something we have been doing for seven to eight years, uncovering all the challenges,” says Morgan. These include battery management and cataloging a new wave of mobile Wi-Fi hot spots. “Broadcom has never done major deployment,” adds Morgan.
Scott Pomerantz, vice president of the GPS division at Broadcom, counters that “the big [mobile] operating systems all have a strategy in place” to create their own Wi-Fi databases. Pomerantz isn’t allowed to name names, but one of Broadcom’s biggest customers is Apple, which previously used Skyhook for location services in its iPhone but now employs its own, Apple-built location system.
At least one feature of Broadcom’s new GPS chip is entirely forward-looking, and integrates data from a source that is not yet commercially deployed: Bluetooth beacons. (Bluetooth is the wireless standard used for short-range communications in devices like wireless keyboards and phone headsets.)
“The use case [for Bluetooth beacons] might be malls,” says Pomerantz. “It would be a good investment for a mall to put up a deployment—perhaps put them up every 100 yards, and then unlock the ability for people walking around mall to get very precise couponing information.”
“The density of these sensors will give you even finer location,” says Charlie Abraham, vice president of engineering at Broadcom. “It could show you where the bananas are within a store—even on which shelf there’s a specific brand.” source – Technology Review
In the valley of decision
At some point, the bible says, it is going to happen. It has to happen. On of the biggest prophetical themes in the bible regarding the end times, is the scenario where the enemies of Israel are working as feverishly as they can to part God’s land, and take it for themselves. The book of Joel lays it out like this:
“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness [is] great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD [will be] the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3 (selected verses.)
This is exactly what is happening right now with Palestine’s bid for statehood at the UN, scheduled for September. If that happens, like many think it will, it is possible that we will see the fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy. I do not say this lightly or casually. September 20th as a date is packed chock full with meaning.
What’s so special about September 20th?
There is a lot of potentially prophetic events taking place between the 20th – 29th of September. The following is from John McTernan’s INSIGHTS:
“The disasters are hitting now literally every week. Louisiana is drowning while Texas, which it borders, is burning up with drought caused fires. Vermont was just smashed with the worst disaster in its history. Please pray and intercede because America has kindled the anger of the LORD. The sodomite marriage and open homosexuality in the military were the issues the Lord is calling America on.
The Comet Elenin
So, you are probably wondering, what about the comet Elenin? In early September, the comet will cross earth’s orbit and be between the earth and the sun. Then on September 26, there will be an alignment with the sun, comet, and earth. This could be at the exact time the UN is debating the creation of a Palestinian state! The comet will be closet to the earth around October 15, which is during the Feast of Tabernacles.
At this time, the earth will pass directly behind the comet as it crosses earth’s orbit. This comet has a hyperbolic orbit which means it will never return. It is very possible that three incredible events are going to occur at the same time this September. The United Nations could be debating the dividing of Israel and Jerusalem in direct violation of the world of God. This will happen during the biblical Fall feasts. At this very time, a comet that seems to have a strange affect on earthquakes will be inside earth’s orbit and aligning itself with the sun and earth! It is very possible that there could be powerful disasters hitting the earth this September/October, as the world comes against Israel.
I am watching this comet very closely as the alignment between it, the earth and sun coincides with enormous earthquakes on the earth. As information develops, I will report it. If the UN General Assembly recognizes a Palestinian state, it will put these nations in direct conflict with the Holy God of Israel. In the past, this has resulted in awesome disasters.
In addition, the sodomizing of the US military will take affect on September 24, which will put it right in the middle of all these events. It is frightening to think of the curse that is now on America and our military as the Middle East is heading towards war. America has done everything to provoke the LORD to judgment as the government pressures Israel to divide Jerusalem and promotes open homosexuality amongst the military. America is looking at awesome judgment while the vast majority of pastors and Christians still seem to have no fear of the LORD judging the nation. May the LORD God of Israel protect you as you look to Him in this time of coming judgment. source – John McTernan’s INSIGHTS Blog
Bushehr is very important today because it is the location of Iran’s nuclear facility and has the attention of the world. Thus, the physical location of ancient Elam is critical today.
Elam was listed with the nations that assisted the Assyrians and Babylonians in their attacks against Jerusalem. The prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel all write blistering judgments against Elam.
The Prophet Jeremiah speaks the most about Elam, as he describes a severe judgment against Elam. In very powerful language God describes His fierce anger and judgment against Elam. The judgment against Elam is very intense with language that is only found in these verses. These verses found in chapter 49 follow:
