End-Time Activity Keeps Pushing Higher

by Todd Strandberg

I might be stating the obvious, but over the past several years, I have noticed a gradual increase in the amount of end-time activity. It has become so pronounced over time that the trend can be clearly seen on the site’s Rapture Index.

Last week, the Index reached a high it had not seen since January 2003. Right after the all-time high, triggered by the fallout from 9/11, prophetic activity subsided for a couple years…but then it began a prolonged rebound.

Radiation, he said, can ensure that “foodstuff, proteins and vegetables are preserved for a longer time and with a higher quality.”
