Adele will be among the music icons who will perform at this year’s Grammy Awards. She surprised the nation when she released her newest album, 25, on Nov. 27, 2015. However, one month before that, she had confirmed a one-night-only concert for Nov. 17 at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. This concert introduced her new songs and previewed the beginning of another successful album.

The album 25 sold 3.38 million copies in the U.S. and over 800,000 copies in the U.K. in just its first week. The album’s biggest hit, Hello, reached No. 1 in almost every country that it was able to chart in. Among these charts was the Billboard Hot 100, where it notably became Adele’s fourth single to reach number one. Hello was also the first song that sold over a million digital copies in one week.

Adele will officially say Hello to the U.S. at the 2016 Grammy Awards, which will also kick off the international tour for her album, 25. Adele Live 2016 will begin on Feb. 29, 2016, in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The tour will end in November 2016, before which she will travel throughout Europe and North America to perform 105 shows. She announced the headlining dates on Nov. 26, 2015, and after tickets were made available in the U.K. on Dec. 4, many venues instantly reported sell-outs, which resulted in extra dates being added to the itinerary. The North American dates were announced on Dec. 14 and will include six shows at both the Madison Square Garden in New York and the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Adele will perform 49 shows in Europe and 56 shows in North America.

It is unknown if Adele will perform Hello at the 2016 Grammy Awards, as another single from 25, When We Were Young, has been recently climbing the charts. The single was released on Jan. 22, 2016, and has reportedly sold over 150,000 digital copies in the U.S. Due to the timing of her album’s release, she did not receive any Grammy nominations this year, however, Adele has won 10 Grammy Awards in the past.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.
