Good early morning to you my friend ( your time ), I think God also for his gift of discernment given to all of his true believers, although I wouldn't exactly equate it with screaming cries of Horticulture, lol.

Yes, I feel that certain on going news events is conducive with prophetic Bible events, we are living end or at least near the end times my friend as you are hearing more and more often about earthquakes popping up in diver places, and man's increasing wickedness is being manifested all the more frequently, as the Word admonishes us..........to be watchful and prayerful.

Peace my sister.

Sad it is indeed my sister, and what's even more frightening is that we know from the Word that it is going to get much worse before it gets any better, you right when you say that all these things are connected at the roots if not so much outwardly, and we know that root is the sin nature of man which is bringing it down upon the world through disobedience to God almigthy.

Part 1
John 3:1 ¶There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
*
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
*
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
*
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
*
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
*
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
*
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
*
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
*
*
This was so long I broke it up a little

Matthew Henry’s Commentary:
1-8 Nicodemus was afraid, or ashamed to be seen with Christ, therefore came in the night. When religion is out of fashion, there are many Nicodemites. But though he came by night, Jesus bid him welcome, and hereby taught us to encourage good beginnings, although weak. And though now he came by night, yet afterward he owned Christ publicly. He did not talk with Christ about state affairs, though he was a ruler, but about the concerns of his own soul and its salvation, and went at once to them.
*
*
Our Saviour spoke of the necessity and nature of regeneration or the new birth, and at once directed Nicodemus to the source of holiness of the heart. Birth is the beginning of life; to be born again, is to begin to live anew, as those who have lived much amiss, or to little purpose. We must have a new nature, new principles, new affections, new aims. By our first birth we were corrupt, shapen in sin; therefore we must be made new creatures. No stronger expression could have been chosen to signify a great and most remarkable change of state and character. We must be entirely different from what we were before, as that which begins to be at any time, is not, and cannot be the same with that which was before.
*
*
This new birth is from heaven, ch. 1:13, and its tendency is to heaven. It is a great change made in the heart of a sinner, by the power of the Holy Spirit. It means that something is done in us, and for us, which we cannot do for ourselves. Something is wrong, whereby such a life begins as shall last for ever. We cannot otherwise expect any benefit by Christ; it is necessary to our happiness here and hereafter.

Part 2
What Christ speak, Nicodemus misunderstood, as if there had been no other way of regenerating and new-moulding an immortal soul, than by new-framing the body. But he acknowledged his ignorance, which shows a desire to be better informed. It is then further explained by the Lord Jesus. He shows the Author of this blessed change. It is not wrought by any wisdom or power of our own, but by the power of the blessed Spirit. We are shapen in iniquity, which makes it necessary that our nature be changed. We are not to marvel at this; for, when we consider the holiness of God, the depravity of our nature, and the happiness set before us, we shall not think it strange that so much stress is laid upon this. The regenerating work of the Holy Spirit is compared to water. It is also probable that Christ had reference to the ordinance of baptism. Not that all those, and those only, that are baptized, are saved; but without that new birth which is wrought by the Spirit, and signified by baptism, none shall be subjects of the kingdom of heaven. The same word signifies both the wind and the Spirit. The wind bloweth where it listeth for us; God directs it. The Spirit sends his influences where, and when, on whom, and in what measure and degree, he pleases. Though the causes are hidden, the effects are plain, when the soul is brought to mourn for sin, and to breathe after Christ. Christ's stating of the doctrine and the necessity of regeneration, it should seem, made it not clearer to Nicodemus.*****Thus the things of the Spirit of God are foolishness to the natural man. Many think that cannot be proved, which they cannot believe. Christ's discourse of gospel truths, ver. 11-13, shows the folly of those who make these things strange unto them; and it recommends us to search them out.****

Jesus Christ is every way able to reveal the will of God to us; for he came down from heaven, and yet is in heaven. We have here a notice of Christ's two distinct natures in one person, so that while he is the Son of man, yet he is in heaven. God is the "HE THAT IS," and heaven is the dwelling-place of his holiness.****The knowledge of this must be from above, and can be received by faith alone.**** Jesus Christ came to save us by healing us, as the children of Israel, stung with fiery serpents, were cured and lived by looking up to the brazen serpent, Nu 21:6-9. In this observe the deadly and destructive nature of sin.****Ask awakened consciences, ask damned sinners, they will tell you, that how charming soever the allurements of sin may be, at the last it bites like a serpent.**** See the powerful remedy against this fatal malady. Christ is plainly set forth to us in the gospel. He whom we offended is our Peace, and the way of applying for a cure is by believing.****If any so far slight either their disease by sin, or the method of cure by Christ, as not to receive Christ upon his own terms, their ruin is upon their own heads.****

Part 3
He has said, Look and be saved, look and live; lift up the eyes of your faith to Christ crucified. And until we have grace to do this, we shall not be cured, but still are wounded with the stings of Satan, and in a dying state. Jesus Christ came to save us by pardoning us, that we might not die by the sentence of the law. Here is gospel, good news indeed. Here is God's love in giving his Son for the world. God so loved the world; so really, so richly. Behold and wonder, that the great God should love such a worthless world! Here, also, is the great gospel duty, to believe in Jesus Christ. God having given him to be our Prophet, Priest, and King, we must give up ourselves to be ruled, and taught, and saved by him. And here is the great gospel benefit, that whoever believes in Christ, shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life.
*
*
****God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, and so saving it. It could not be saved, but through him; there is no salvation in any other.**** From all this is shown the happiness of true believers; he that believeth in Christ is not condemned.**** Though he has been a great sinner, yet he is not dealt with according to what his sins deserve. How great is the sin of unbelievers! God sent One to save us, that was dearest to himself; and shall he not be dearest to us? How great is the misery of unbelievers! they are condemned already; which speaks a certain condemnation; a present condemnation. The wrath of God now fastens upon them; and their own hearts condemn them. There is also a condemnation grounded on their former guilt; they are open to the law for all their sins; because they are not by faith interested in the gospel pardon. Unbelief is a sin against the remedy. It springs from the enmity of the heart of man to God, from love of sin in some form.
*
*
Read also the doom of those that would not know Christ. Sinful works are works of darkness.****The wicked world keep as far from this light as they can, lest their deeds should be reproved.****Christ is hated, because sin is loved. If they had not hated saving knowledge, they would not sit down contentedly in condemning ignorance.****On the other hand, renewed hearts bid this light welcome. A good man acts truly and sincerely in all he does. He desires to know what the will of God is, and to do it, though against his own worldly interest. A change in his whole character and conduct has taken place. The love of God is shed abroad in his heart by the Holy Ghost, and is become the commanding principle of his actions. So long as he continues under a load of unforgiven guilt, there can be little else than slavish fear of God; but when his doubts are done away, when he sees the righteous ground whereon this forgiveness is built, he rests on it as his own, and is united to God by unfeigned love.
*
*
Our works are good when the will of God is the rule of them, and the glory of God the end of them; when they are done in his strength, and for his sake; to him, and not to men. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a subject to which the world is very averse; it is, however, the grand concern, in comparison with which every thing else is but trifling. What does it signify though we have food to eat in plenty, and variety of raiment to put on, if we are not born again?****if after a few mornings and evenings spent in unthinking mirth, carnal pleasure, and riot, we die in our sins, and lie down in sorrow? What does it signify though we are well able to act our parts in life, in every other respect, if at last we hear from the Supreme Judge, "Depart from me, I know you not, ye workers of iniquity?"****

I have no fear of any prophet...
... and if you think the prophet given to Jonah failed, doesn't mean God cannot change his mind to destroy Nineveh.
"10 Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it."
His word means more to me. He has proven this to me too many times in my life.
What I love even more-so about Nineveh, is that because they repented... Jesus included them in his prophesy...
Luke 11:32
"The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here."
So... Nineveh had more than just one role to play.
... and truth is they have done just that in our today!
... believe it or not, anything you say can never change that.
... it happened in our time.
... so Jesus's prophesy is real.
Had they been destroyed completely, they would not have survived to fulfill this now, today.
So like the people of Nineveh at the time of Jonah, I too stand with them today...
" 5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. 6 Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. 7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying,
Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water. 8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9 Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?
... and
>>>echo<<<
"Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish?"
The city of Ninevah unearthed many great finds.
Metamorphically one can honestly say it bitch-slapped the bible.

Very true happenings Irrira, what many do not understand however is that the U.S. cannot strecth itself too thin by trying to police the whole world, what I don't understand is that President Obama has threatened military action if the regime in syria "cross the line" being using chemical weapons, what's the difference in killing your civilians with chemical weapons as opposed to the way they are killing them now?.......killing is killing, and while I personally am not calling for action against the syrian government, then why wait for the use of chemical weapons if we have any intention of convening?

One can follow Jesus' good teachings without believing in his alleged resurrection.
I hope you remember that after visiting the empty tomb, Peter went back home wondering what had happened, according to presbyter Luke.
What is the point or sense in following the teachings of Jesus Christ if you do not believe in his death, burial and resurrection, that is foolish and a complete waste of time, the entire purpose of hos DBR is to redeem man back to God with his shedded blood, without which there would be no opportunity or way for salvation.

You seem to have a little education in worldly matters and dictation, but you are grossly lacking in the spiritual knowledge of our lORD and Savior.

That Jesus is alive, is absurd. I believe Jesus is dead, dust and bones like all the prophets and all dead.
Only one, who came down direct from heavens, could go back into heavens direct. Jesus did not meet that requirement. He was born, so he had to die too.
That is the truth.
Where did you get your misguided information from?.........it is funny that you like to quote scripture from a book that you obviously don't believe in, Jesus Christ is alive and well and he is one with the father, where does the Bible say different and again.........who peddled you those lies?
