A new conspiracy theory has emerged with the release of the new $100 bill, but many have debunked the bogus claims with a simple scripture.
A misguided man claiming to be prophet took to the internet recently in a new video to reveal what he believes to be a government plot. He said the U.S. government will attack New York City with a nuclear missile that can be seen on the new money. The theorist claims he is a prophet of God throughout the eight-minute video and even says that the Lord spoke to him, foretelling that great destruction is upon us in America.
"This man is not a proper representative of a Christian," said commenters like Melynda B. Ulrich and many others. "We are taught through the Bible that no man knows the date or time when Christ will come again. God is not giving this man any insight to his plan for this Earth." more >>

Much of the inspiration for the FOX network's new show "Sleepy Hollow," a modern-day police drama twist on the classic short story by Washington Irving, was drawn from the Bible, specifically the Book of Revelation and end times, the show's producers said in a recent interview.
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, executive producers of "Sleepy Hollow," said in a recent interview that they took the plot of the original "Sleepy Hollow" short story and added biblical themes to create their drama adaptation for the FOX network.
The original "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" was written by American writer Washington Irving in 1820 and follows the protagonist Ichabod Crane, a Connecticut school master who is seeking the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter of a wealthy farmer in rural New York, in marriage. Crane, who is in competition with Abraham Van Brunt for Van Tassel's hand, is eventually scared out of town by a headless horseman ghost riding in the night. more >>
The question of whether or not the current events taking place in Syria are connected to the End Times is a "legitimate question," says an author and expert on the Middle East and End Times prophecy.
Joel C. Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of books such as The Last Days and Epicenter, and founder of the pro-Israel The Joshua Fund, told The Christian Post that such speculations should be taken with caution, but are legitimate ponderings. "I think we have to be very careful not to overreach or to sensationalize a terrible situation that's happening to real people right now and to draw a conclusion too quickly," said Rosenberg. "That being said, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 are very important. They speak to the utter destruction and judgment of the city of Damascus at some point in the End Times future."
Rosenberg, whose bestselling novels often feature end times themes, also told CP that "these prophecies have never been fulfilled in history so far." more >>
The recently released movie "This is the End," which has received some criticism from Christians for inaccurately portraying the apocalypse by biblical standards, reportedly had to be partially re-done to include a scene showing heaven due to popular demand by a test audience.
Seth Rogen, who co-wrote and directed the film with Evan Goldberg, said in a recent interview that an audience test-screening the apocalyptic comedy was disappointed the film didn't include an ending which showed all the characters in heaven following the Rapture.
Rogen and Goldberg were surprised to find their test audience wanted to see an ending involving heaven. more >>
Is Robert Downey Jr.'s mention of Bible prophecy teacher Chuck Missler during an appearance on Jon Stewart's Daily Show a sign that the "Iron Man" actor is tracking with the latest End Times conversation? Prophecy News Watch took the opportunity to post a short video clip of Downey's Missler reference on the show and write about current events in the Middle East.
Downey's own faith or religious beliefs are not highly publicized, but his mention of Missler, which included him saying "love Chuck Missler," has come at a critical time when "people are looking for answers to help understand many of the current events happening around us," said Prophecy News Watch Director Kade Hawkins.
"To those who teach Bible Prophecy such as Chuck Missler, the events in Syria, Iran, Israel and throughout the Middle East are considered a foreshadowing of bigger events yet to happen – events that were prophesized thousands of years ago but possibly may now be just around the corner," stated PNW. more >>
