Is That You, Big Brother? – Updated

“It is discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.” Noel Coward

George Orwell’s 1984 introduced the neologism “Big Brother” into our language, psyches and culture. Big Brother was the dictator of Orwell’s totalitarian state in which everyone was under constant surveillance, and thereby under the control of the state. While many perceive Orwell as being ahead of his time, in fact, he was late by several millennia. As it turns out, Big Brother literally is our big brother, according to the Biblical record. This leads us to the question, why are the leaders of the West of one mind in undermining the freedom and liberties of their citizens, and contravening the rule of law while conducting wars on a perpetual basis, both domestic and foreign? The clear answer is found in the Biblical record's end-time prophecies, especially the book of Revelation.

Flying Saucers In The Bible … Really?

The subject of UFO’s or flying saucers in the Biblical record has the potential to open Pandora’s Box at warp speed. The topic, however, is not new by any means. So before anyone gets weirded out about the subject matter of this article, given its title, a word of caution.
