I usually have about 50-80 hits per day on my site.  Nothing to brag about.  However, for some reason, 250+ people came to my site on Monday to find out more about the murals at the Denver International Airport.  Where did these people come from?  How did they find out about my blog?  What made them all wonder about the airport murals that day?  (The murals were first ‘exposed’ several years ago.)

I say all that as a lead in to what I intended to write today.

I had a glimpse, a few hours ago, of something I had not considered.  Those of us (just ordinary people) who are ‘awake’ to what is going on (the United States shadow government, Bilderbergers, CFR, Bible Prophecy, etc.)  have been frustrated at how many people are ‘sleeping’ (unaware).  We have practically been screaming to people to wake up–to family (who won’t listen), to friends (who won’t listen), and finally, to the whole nameless faceless world out there via the internet.  I think we have been so intent on getting people to wake up, that we have not stopped to consider what will happen when they do.

Most of us who post to the internet are aware that things stay in cyberspace ‘forever’–at least the way things are set up now they do.  That, at least, has been a comfort.  We know we have done our part and said our piece.  Someday, someone will take heed.  It may be today, next month, next year . . . or twenty years from now.  The airport mural story illustrates that.  It was written over a year ago.

What I glimpsed today was the face of a young person who has awakened to what is going on.  This was a real person, a young man who had posted a video on YouTube.  As I watched his video I noticed, and remembered, a lot of things.

  • Most people are really angry when they wake up to the situation
  • Young people tend to be more brash and reckless
  • Young people tend to have less impulse control
  • Young people tend to be more violent and have shorter tempers

Young people are the generation(s) that are going to reap the fruit of what is now being sown–in other words, they are going to have a lot more to be angry about.  As conditions worsen, they are going to be looking for answers . . . and for someone to blame.  As they start asking questions, they are going to find the same answers we did . . . and they are going to find the things we are writing, trying to wake you (their parents and grandparents).  However, I believe that their anger is going to be magnitudes greater than yours/ours.

I suspect that they are going to continue to ignore what we are writing, until the economy gets worse.  But, eventually they are going to wake up to the fact that there is no ‘American Dream’ possible for them, that this is not just an ‘economic downturn’, and that the situation is not going to improve.  They are going to be angry.  Then they will begin to look for someone to blame.

They will be just as angry as we are at the international bankers and corrupt government officials.  But here’s something to consider:  when they see how long we/you have known . . . how long the warning message has been going out . . . and how we/you preferred not to deal with it–especially while something COULD have been done, without bloodshed . . . they are going to discover how they have been betrayed, by the generations that went before them.

When they are homeless, and going without meals, and they realize that we (their parents and grandparents)  knew about this but did nothing–that we didn’t want to rearrange our lives and endure a little hardship now so they would not endure a living hell later . . . how do you think they are going to feel towards you?  Do you suppose there will be one bit of respect, loyalty or compassion left in their hearts for you?

(For those of you who say you are Christians–do you think there will ever again be one iota of respect in their hearts for your God, or for Christianity?)

It may stink to consider making sacrifices in your life–but it has become the American way of life to borrow from the future.  We don’t deny ourselves anything, even though we know there will be a price to pay ‘someday’.

Here’s a news flash:  ‘Someday’ is your children and grandchildren!!

What we do, and don’t pay for, today is going to be a burden on the backs of our children and grandchildren.  You may be able to put the thought out of your mind and go ahead and indulge yourself, but I guarantee that every halting step they take, under all those heavy burdens, they will think of us.  (For those of you who worry about euthanasia in your old age–your subconscious is trying to get a message to you now: ‘you will reap what you sow!!’)

But I’m not just talking about how we spend our money–I’m talking about how we deal with, or better stated, how we don’t deal with problems.  The things we don’t deal with today are going to have to be dealt with ‘someday’.  Yes, there it is again:  ‘Someday’ is your children and grandchildren!!

It is time for our generation(s) to grow up and be adults!  It is time to start thinking about those who are following behind us.  As long as we continue to each ‘look out for number one’, as long as we continue to look the other way and not deal with the problems our nation is facing, the more responsibility we are putting on our children and grandchildren’s generations to clean it all up!

Here’s another news flash:  While our backs are turned, the plans of evil people come to fruition.

As long as we continue to focus only on ourselves, evil people are spinning webs to ensnare our children and grandchildren.  There is still time to confront what is going on.  There is still opportunity for a bloodless revolution, but the window of opportunity is closing.

Let me paint a picture for you–if we fail to deal with the evil and corruption that are entrenched in our government and economy, and if we fail to do it soon, things are going to radically change for the worse.  That’s fine if you want to live under that kind of a system–but if we don’t do anything, we are imposing that system upon future generations-who probably don’t want it! 

Truth be told, we don’t want it either–we are just being too lazy and self-absorbed to do anything to prevent it.  We are hanging onto our comfort today, and the HOPE that it won’t turn out that way.  But we are wrong on both counts.  Because of our not dealing with it, things will not be comfortable for our children and grandchildren–and they will not have the luxure of hope, like we still do.

Contrary to what some comfortable people might think–losing one’s home does not drive most people to desperation.  Losing one’s car does not drive most people to desperation.  Even losing one’s reputation and credibility doesn’t drive most people to desperation.  What DOES drive people to desperation is losing HOPE!

Weigh that against the sacrifices you could potentially make to help turn things around.

children/grandchildren:  NO HOPE   vs.   you:  loss of credibility for speaking up

children/grandchildren:  NO HOPE   vs.   you:  reputation affected by protesting injustice or corruption

children/grandchildren:  NO HOPE   vs.   you:  giving up something to make a difference

children/grandchildren:  NO HOPE   vs.   you:  giving up the comfort of living in denial

What all of this is leading up to is what I saw:

If  WE, this generation of parents and grandparents, do not do what we can . . . someday our children and grandchildren, desperate and without hope, will rise up to fight.

If  WE do not initiate a bloodless revolution, while ‘cooler heads prevail’ . . . someday our children and grandchildren will give their lives to win back their freedom.

If WE do not surrender some of our comfort now and do what we can . . . someday the blood of our children and grandchildren will flow in the streets.

If WE do not do what we can now, we will have betrayed our children and grandchildren, and become complicit in the crimes against their generations . . . and their blood will be upon OUR hands.

If we do not do something now, while the opportunity still exists, they will take matters into their own hands.  When they wake up to what is going on, they are going to angrily (and I fear, violently) take matters into their own hands.  They could awaken any day.  How long does it take for something to ‘go viral’ on the internet?

I find my  position, in some ways, reversed.  I now pray God keeps the younger generation asleep and unaware–and I pray that our generation wakes up and does something soon!

Please–for the love of your children, for the love of your grandchildren–please do what you can!  Speak up–spread the word–wake your friends and family.  (You may lose credibility for awhile, but when the truth comes out you will be vindicated. )  Resist lawfully and nonviolently.  But for goodness sake–start fighting back!

The only way to keep our children from starting an angry violent revolution tomorrow, is that we deal with the mess ourselves today.

If This Is True, We’d Better Not Yield To The Temptation

Overnight Disaster!!

Advertisements

Can you imagine what life would be like if there was no advertising of products? No billboards, no junk mail, no flyers, no spam . . . Do we ever stop and think how deeply we are affected by this constant barrage?

Here’s something I had not known, because it never occurred to me to wonder. Why do we say ‘diamonds are forever’? Why is it a tradition to buy a diamond engagement ring? Let me see if I can remember my facts . . . because De Beers ran an ad campaign in the 1930′s to create a market for diamonds.

Oh, here’s another factoid–De Beers* is connected with the wealthy elite that some refer to as ‘the puppet masters’. Yes, from what I can see, they are the ones that control the markets of precious jewels. It’s sort of like they are ‘glittering with gold, precious stones, and pearls’ . . . wait, where have I heard that before? Isn’t that how the ‘Whore of Babylon’ is described?

Here’s another thought. I heard a comment made by someone in power that we needed global governance because we have a global economy, etc. My immediate thought was–’well, if it’s going to cause us to need a global government, perhaps we should not have a global economy.’ Who is it that decided we needed a global economy in the first place? My guess would be that it was the ones who have appointed themselves to run it!

Here’s another thought: we are learning all about the conspiracies of the elite to create a NWO, and people seem to take it for granted that their agenda will come to pass. Maybe, but I have a different theory.

I believe the antichrist will rise up out of the elite, after they have done the ‘dirty work’ of creating the framework for a global government, then will turn and devour them. After that, he will impose his own form of world government.

The religion he will impose is primarily Islam (to which he may make some changes), enlarged to incorporate all the other religions  of the world–except Christianity and Judaism. This is not as big a stretch as some might imagine.  Satan/Lucifer is most clearly embodied in ‘allah’ but, in the end, all religions except Christianity and Judaism lead to him.

The blasphemy that is quietly sweeping the world is that allah is God.  Satan, the ‘Father of Lies’, claims to be God and most people just take his word for it. Make no mistake, allah is satan/lucifer–not God!!

What a red flag it should be when any Christian leader attempts to make peace with Islam, especially if he does not have the discernment to see that allah and God are polar opposites!!  Everything about allah is clearly anti-christ!!

Just as God’s commandments have formed the foundation for our legal system, The Koran and Islamic law (Sharia) will be the basis of his legal system.

His education system–brainwashing and indoctrination.

His leadership style–classic cult leader, including self promotion and the demand for complete submission and worship from his followers.

The rights of the individual–none. He considers everyone a part of himself (which is a trait that is characteristic of narcissists.) He views the people he rules as we might view our hair or fingernails. Do we ever stop to consider that our hair might not wish to be cut? How absurd! And similarly absurd, to him, is the idea that we might have free will that should be respected.

His form of government–dictatorial, obviously.

While the elite that rule over us are totally corrupt and steeped in the occult–we have had the lesser of two evils. God has held the devil back from ruling the world, but since mankind has been rebellious and is now, as in the days of Noah, completely evil, He is ceasing to restrain satan from fulfilling His agenda.

As bad as the plans of the NWO are, the system that the antichrist is putting in place is much, much worse.

It is also my belief that part of his destruction of the ‘Whore of Babylon’ (NWO elitists) is that he is revealing their doings to stir up a public outcry against them, so that he and the new system he implements will be seen as the world’s salvation. They will be the scapegoats, the justification for the strict control measures he puts in place, and the required surrender of our freedoms.

He is now beginning to ‘throw them under the bus’ by revealing that they are primarily Jewish, thus further provoking the world’s hatred of Jews and all who support Jews (Christians).

Think about how angry you were when you learned about the elite NWO plan to control us–I was furious for months!  How do you think the WHOLE  WORLD will feel about it, when the facts are revealed?  Especially when there is a concerted media effort to demonize those who are behind it?

Does Obama’s apology tour and bowing to dictators, etc. now begin to reveal his true agenda? He is courting those that hate America and Israel, distancing himself from us–showing these communist leaders that he is on their side, if they should decide to attack either one of us.

I’m expanding this post that I had written but not posted, with the following info. I  just found:

Somehow I ended up at the (Jewish) Anti Defamation League website, which I didn’t realize until later.  I was surprised, because I thought it was a site promoting Louis Farrakhan!  To my knowledge, I had never (before tonight) heard anything that he has said.

As I read these things I was nodding my head-‘-yes, these things are true.  These are all the things that I have been learning.  But isn’t he supposed to be a radical?’ In a word: yes!  Now, I didn’t interpret the words I read, the way that others have accused him of–but I only read a couple pages of things he has said, so I don’t know.

I agreed nearly completely with half of what was in his quotes that I read–the half that talks about the few Jews that comprise the elite, and how they are trying to foist their ‘New World Order’ upon us.

The other half of what he said, that promotes Islam, I completely disagreed with.

As it turns out, he is the leader of ‘The Nation of Islam’ in America, which is said to be ‘the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America’   (In other words, converting America into an Islamic nation).

I find it strange that I would agree so completely with  him about the NWO conspiracy.  If he is involved with Islam, he is deceived. What are the chances he is 100% wrong regarding God & Islam, yet nearly 100% right regarding the Jewish NWO conspiracy?

To me, this seems suspicious, and it makes me wonder  if the things we are learning about the elite/NWO conspiracy are being fed to us by satan.  It certainly would further his agenda.  It leads me to wonder if it really is 100% true . . . therefore, we need to be cautious about what we accept as truth, considering the possible source.

So(to me) it confirms what I said earlier–that the elite, Jewish, International Banker, NWO crowd will be outed by the antichrist, and further demonized for the public, which will lead to terrible persecution of Jews and, later, Christians.

Now, if the leader of Islam is talking about this, and is expressly saying that it is only a few Jews that are guilty–isn’t that a fair assessment?  Don’t they deserve whatever they get?  Only God really knows.

But why should we worry?  It will just be the guilty that reap what they sow, right?  No.  And the reason I know that is because satan hates ALL  the people of the twelve tribes of Israel, and he won’t miss the opportunity to wipe out every one of them if he can.  (There is another aspect to all of this too, that may really blow your mind . . . *)

Check out this statement he made:’

‘ Suppose Hitler was trying to destroy the international bankers controlling Europe, but he went about it by attacking a whole people. All Jews are not responsible for the evil of the few who do evil but certain Jews have used Judaism as a shield.”‘

That is where the quote ends.  I have a couple of thoughts:

1)  It’s interesting to hear someone say that Hitler might have been motivated by the very thing that I believe will motivate (or be claimed to motivate) the antichrist to make war on Jews.  I wholeheartedly believe that the same evil spirit(s) that controlled Hitler will control the antichrist too.

We have already seen many parallels between what Obama is doing and how Hitler rose to power.  (I suspect that this is happening in many other countries too because, in just the last few years, I know of several countries that have lost their freedom to dictators in a similar manner to what is happening in America.)  Communism is sweeping the world.

2)  Is he implying that 6 million Jews were just collateral damage in Hitler’s alleged hunt for the elite Jewish bankers?  Is he ok with that?  He says he’s not anti-Semitic, and he is very careful in his specific wording, from what I saw.  In other words, if we could take him at his word, I don’t believe he is anti-Semitic.  But can we take him at his word?

And, even if he is not anti-Semitic, does he really have any concern for the Jews who are not involved?  It seems pretty clear that Islamic doctrine is very adamant in its hatred of Jews.  Is it possible that he, the leader of Islam in America, is not anti-Semitic?  It’s quite unlikely.

There is a clause, in Islam, that if one feels that they are in danger from non-Muslims, they can smile, befriend them, and lie to them, while secretly cursing them in their heart.  So, although he says he is not anti-Semitic, I strongly suspect he is lying.

Obama says that Farrakhan lives in the same city (Chicago).  Well, to be more precise, he lives a block away from Obama’s Chicago home–and across the street from Marty Nesbitt, who Obama spent part of the day with on Memorial Day, according to  this article from 2 days ago!

So what?  Well, apparently guys came out of Farrakhan’s house complaining about where the press pool’s bus was parked.  For some absurd reason they chanted ‘Islam, Islam’ for 90 minutes, and the incident escalated, to some extent, drawing in even more Secret Service agents.

Did anyone happen to notice where the president was for that 90 minutes?  In my opinion, it was a not-so-clever smokescreen to allow Obama time to meet with his mentor Farrakhan.  With war ready to break out in the Middle East between Israel and (Shi’a Muslim) Iran,  with Obama using every means to manipulate Netanyahu into capitulating to the demands of the Palestinians, with plans to build a Mosque (permanent Islamic embassy) at Ground Zero, etc.– what could they possibly have to discuss . . . ?

Reportedly, Farrakhan has called Obama ‘The Messiah’. But, he is the leader of Islam in America–so for Christians and Jews I will translate:

  • Islam = anti Christianity
  • Islamic ‘God’ (Allah) = the name of blasphemy aka The Antichrist
  • Islamic Messiah = anti Christ

In summary, be wise!  Not everything that you see on the horizon is going to come to pass, nor is all of it the substance of the NWO conspiracy.

What you are seeing, as vague forms in the darkness are two evil, human, political/religious ideologies (that are empowered by satan), and they are vying for control of mankind–the Whore of Babylon (elitist NWO who have been in charge), and the satanic Islamic seven headed, ten horned beast that is rising up from underneath her.

Originally satan was working through the NWO elite/Whore of Babylon, but now that she has accomplished what he was using her for, he is throwing her under the bus and redeploying his forces.    (Same old tactic: tempt, get proof and pictures, throw under the bus)

Watch her destruction and rejoice!!  But woe to us now for what–and who–comes next . . .

* One more interesting note about De Beers–we can thank them for our new pornographic airport scanners!  They invented this technology in order to prevent miners from smuggling diamonds out of their mines.

Do You Recognize This Man?

Coming Soon, To America . . .

We Are Living In Revelation

*There is another aspect to all of this too, that may really blow your mind . . .

The ‘Western World’, NATO nations, etc. is the 10 ‘missing’ tribes of Israel.

You can check out authorSteven M. Collins’ site for more information on America’s place in end time prophecy, as well as very interesting blog posts regarding current events and how they may tie in with prophecies.

I highly recommend his site.  His posts (and books) are well researched and the truth he shares will greatly expand your understanding of the reasons behind what is happening in geopolitics today.

(I know nothing about Scott Brown.  This is not a commentary on him in any way.)

As much of a relief as it is that another Democrat did not win the Massachusetts election–it is not time for ‘back to business as usual’.  Never again should we let down our guard.  Although the win of a Republican was strategically important, it does not mean we are safe–not by any stretch of the imagination.

No matter how similar to us they may seem, there is something inherently different in most people that run for office–especially those that actually are elected.  That hunger for power and position is something that should be viewed with a certain amount of wariness on our part.  Besides that, they are human–and humans are fallible.  Power corrupts, and it spends a good bit of time prowling around the halls of our government, looking for an opportunity.

Remember: there are two types of people, against whom no one can testify:

  1. those who are innocent
  2. those who leave no witnesses alive

We still live in perilous times.  No one can be trusted 100%.  I hope, through all the influential people whose corruption has been exposed–in politics, finance, etc.–over the last couple of years, that you will take the lesson to heart.

The problem here is not one of political parties.  It is one of behind the scenes affiliations.  Hopefully you have learned from all that has been said about  ‘The Bilderbergers’, the ‘Trilateral Commission’, and the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’, etc.  Hopefully you are now aware that there are powerful forces working behind the scenes.  The real problem is not Republican vs. Democrat.  The problem is with the elite that are behind them both.

I’m sure there is still MUCH more that could be exposed.  I imagine all that we have seen is only the tip of the iceberg.  There is something EXTREMELY suspicious about a bipartisan congress that would just go along with everything the president was putting forth–at least, at the beginning.  There is some kind of real power that brings that about–whether it be persuasion, bewitchment, or blackmail.  That power is still present in the halls of congress.  No matter who we elect, the real test will be what they DO when they get there.  In my belief, it is only the power of God that can truly stand against such evil and triumph.

But don’t be fooled! The enemy (Satan) can pick a fine looking man, dress him up in robes, and give him a cross to hold out in front of him.  He may rant and rave against the powers of darkness, and give every appearance of being in opposition to them.  He may do miraculous things–signs and wonders. He may very well have the absolute endorsement of all the most respected religious leaders of our day.  But . . . that does not mean he is filled with the Spirit of God!!

The people behind the scenes will not relinquish power without a “hellacious” fight.  Nor will the enemy of our souls–who is the force that empowers these people.  His time is short, and he is desperate.  Never again–until Christ returns–will we be able to take a deep breath and relax.  We must always be on guard, vigilant, and discerning.

The pendulum swings both ways.  ‘The people have spoken!’  Expect to see more ‘God fearing’ candidates–more people running on religious ideals–and expect to see them winning.  Don’t think that Satan, and the elites, won’t make full use of that!  Expect them also to put forth candidates that are religious, that make claims of being Christians.  These are people without conscience–bodies without souls!

The elite look at the people of the world without compassion–as mere problems to be solved, numbers to crunch, etc. They aim to purposely depopulate the world!  They are advocates of eugenics, genocide, euthanasia.  They see war as a means to prosperity!  This is nothing but a giant chess game to them.  They will put forth candidates that the people will vote for, and they count on the masses to be blind and gullible!  Expect a ‘great awakening’ of religious ideals to sweep the nation politically–but only some of it will be genuine!

That being said–the real danger is that the one who does the most to unravel America may be a ‘Christian’!! Someone who claims to be a Christian.  But here is the problem:  there are more people claiming to be Christians today, than really are Christians, and we have been as naive as little lambs.  When someone tells us they are a Christian, we have taken them at their word–but ‘by their fruit you will know them’!!

If you look into the connections the Bush family has with the organizations mentioned above (and Prescott Bush with Auschwitz and Monowitz), you will see that they are among the elites.  They may call themselves Christians–and that is for God to decide–but I see them as wolves in sheep’s clothing!  We believed we had a Christian president, but that is when the most of our liberties were stripped away–and we still have many people who haven’t woken up to that!

Then along came Obama, claiming to be a Christian too.  Don’t tell me, after all you’ve seen him do, that you don’t believe he was a disciple of Reverend Wright!  He most certainly believes, and concurs wholeheartedly with, everything that man has to say!  Look at his voting record on abortion!  Look at his backing of the gay, lesbian, transgender agenda!  Etc., etc., etc.  He says he’s a Christian–so what!!  HE’S A LIAR!! Let the record show, this man has lied more than he has told the truth!!  If you want to know the real truth, you’d better look back on all he has promised–and expect the opposite to be in your future instead!  This man will look you in the eye and lie–and you’ll believe it!  He has a powerful annointing of evil!

So, now the people have spoken and the pendulum will swing the other way.  Let me warn you of what may lie ahead.

Don’t be surprised if our next president appears as a strong Christian, well respected, annointed–and maybe he has been, but somewhere along the way he fell into (or will fall into) ‘secret sin’.  The enemy found a weakness and capitalized on it, seducing him into deep spiritual darkness.  Then, knowingly or not, he ‘made a deal with the devil’.  And, let me tell you what–unless America has truly repented, this man will have God’s endorsement to be our president.

You can expect the ‘Christian’ leaders of the day to wholeheartedly back him.  A few Christians (there are Christians and there are ‘Christians’) will discern, by the Spirit, what he is and, in alarm, will try to warn people–but it will be of no use.  Today ‘Christians’ far outnumber Christians, and he will be one of them.  Today’s backslidden, lukewarm ‘Christians’ will be completely comfortable with him, because that’s the only kind of Christian most of them know.  It is said that ‘we get the leaders we deserve’.

To add to the illusion–God’s Watchmen may not speak.  If America does not repent, and God continues to visit judgment upon America, it may be, that at some point He instructs them not to speak.  Better it is for judgment to do its work and bring forth repentance, than for people to find a way to avoid it, and go to eternal destruction.

So now you know, and if your heart is right, you may discern it when it happens–you may even be one of the voices calling out a warning.  But if God has sent the judgment and the delusion, people will continue to blindly follow, and what is decreed will come to pass.  There is a time to speak–and a time to remain silent.  Let the Holy Spirit be your guide.

All that is just the prelude to what this post was to be about:  the second beast aka ‘The False Prophet’.

Beware of the second beast! All the attention these days is given to looking for the first beast and avoiding it.  The first beast will blaspheme God.  The first beast will make war against God’s people.  The first beast will have authority over all the earth.  The first beast is an empire and whoever is its leader.

But it is the second beast that really causes men to be damned.  It seems to me that it is the second beast that takes center stage in world events.

The second beast will exercise all the authority of the first beast.  The second beast makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast.  It is the second beast that performs great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from  heaven.  It is the second beast that deceives the inhabitants of the earth, by way of the signs he performs. It is the second beast who commands men to create an image in honor of the first beast.  It is the second beast who gives breath to the image of the first beast–so that it can speak and cause all who refuse to worship the image (itself) to be killed.   It is the second beast that causes everyone to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead in order to buy or sell–a mark which is the name of the beast (first or second?) or the number of his name (first or second beast?).

Especially take note of this:  The second beast has ‘two horns like a lamb’ but ‘speaks like a dragon’.  We already know the dragon is Satan–but what about the ‘two horns like a lamb’?  My interpretation of this (I could be  wrong) is that the second beast is a false Christianity, with two aspects (Protestant and Catholic?).

With that possibility in mind, read over the paragraph above.  Keep in mind too, that the prophecy will be literally fulfilled–but perhaps not in the way we interpret and picture it, ahead of time.  Meaning: we tend to form a picture of how things will happen, based on our interpretation of what the verses say and, in hindsight, comparing events to the Scriptures, we will be able to see that things were literally fulfilled–but most likely, not at all how we had predicted!

I’ll point out a few things that we might easily misinterpret, because they have many possible interpretations:

  • will exercise all the authority of–in what manner will he exercise it?
  • will exercise all the authority of–is this authority granted by man (such as by election), or is it granted by God, or both?
  • makes the earth and its inhabitants worship–to what degree does he ‘make’ them do it?  Does he round them up in the night, or does he just say that they need to do it, or does he get them so riled up that they do it on their own (like at a concert?)?
  • makes the earth and its inhabitants worshipin what manner do they worship?  Do they physically bow down several times a day, as Muslims do?  Or do they just talk about it, and praise it all the time?
  • fire to come down from heaven–is it real, literal fire coming down out of the sky?  Is it a fireball?  Is it lightning?
  • commands men to create an image–how does he command it?  In an authoritative voice via television?  By passing a law? Does he command everyone?  Or does he just tell a few guys on his staff to do it, without fanfare?
  • commands men to create an imagewhat is this image?  A statue?  A logo?  A hologram? Some marvel of future technology that we haven’t seen yet?  Something so ordinary we wouldn’t even think of it as fitting the Scripture?
  • gives breath to the image–will it literally be alive, having its own consciousness? Will it be ‘animated’? Will it just be something, powered by electricity, that gives the appearance of being alive?
  • speak and cause all who refuse to worship the image to be killed–does it just stir up animosity against those who refuse, so that people hate and kill them?  Does it put a bounty on them?  Does it issue a fatwa?  Does it pass a law, that all must worship it, that carries the death penalty?
  • cause all who refuse to worship the image to be killed-all who verbally say ‘no’?  All who protest? Even those who just passively avoid it?
  • causes everyone to receive a mark–endorses it?  Deceives them into it?  Shames them into it–calling them ‘nuts’, ‘religious fanatics’, ‘superstitious’?  Legislates it?  Rounds them up in the night if they don’t?

These are just some of the possibilities–ones I can think of. This should illustrate to you that there are MANY ways to misinterpret any or all of the things that will come.  The only way you will know is if God reveals it to you.  He may reveal the whole picture ahead of time, or He may only show us one step at a time–or He may keep it veiled and reveal events as having fulfilled prophecy after they happen!

I study, and pray, and seek the interpretation–but God has only revealed a few things to me.  What He has shown me instead is how many ways things could be interpreted, when looking ahead.  He has also shown me that even the most respected Bible scholars and ‘prophets’ have a lot of errors in their understanding.  I’m nobody special, so it’s not surprising that He might not reveal it to me.  What is telling, is that no one really seems to know–at least, no one seems to know the whole picture.

So, if no one has the answers you are looking for–what do you do?  If, even at this late date, God has not opened the prophecies to our understanding, what are any of us to do?  What is important is to focus, not on events that you want to find a way to avoid, but on Him!  If you are serving Him, yet had never heard any of the prophecies, He would still show you the way to walk.  The people who will most quickly recognize ‘The Beast’, ‘The Antichrist’ and ‘The Mark’ are not the ones who spend the most time worrying about them, but rather those who dwell in His presence!  Trust that if you know Him and walk with Him daily, He will not let you be deceived, nor will you accidentally take The Mark!  He is fully able to guard what you have entrusted to Him!

‘Buy Gold From Me . . . ‘  (Jesus, to the ‘Lukewarm Church’)

Believe There Are Many Ways To God?

Only One Way?  How Intolerant!

Searching for an article I had previously read, I did a Google search of ‘America Empire’.  It yielded twenty six million hits!  It’s right in front of our eyes, yet hidden in plain sight!

People: ‘Actions speak louder than words’, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’–put aside everything you have been told (about America promoting democracy or protecting its ‘interests’ throughout the world), and let actions speak for themselves!

Here is a picture that’s worth a thousand words:

US military bases

We’re told that we are hated because our enemies ‘hate our way of life’ . . . really?  These people hate freedom and prosperity?  Education and opportunity?  Technological advancement?  Good medical care?  Nah, I’m not buying it.

The few that really DO hate our way of life seem to be opposed to the sexual depravity (and materialism?) that we export worldwide via Hollywood!  (It’s really a shame that the American Church is less discerning, with regards to sin, than the ungodly!)

I believe what our enemies hate most, is to be subjugated!!  They hate our imperialism.  Most Americans are blissfully unaware of that aspect of America.  Who the heck gave us the right to determine what other countries should or should not do if they are living peaceably within their own borders?  By what authority do we create ‘regime change’ or assassinate people in another country?  These are just a couple of the things America engages in, that you may have already heard of.

Do I hate America?  I don’t know–I don’t think so.  I do believe America was chosen, inspired, and established by God–that America I do not hate.  The American people–I do not hate.

The corrupt, depraved, imperialistic, tyrannical beast that America has become, backed by multinational corporations and wealthy elite (this must be what they call the ‘military-industrial complex’)?  I am no fan of this.  Our hedonistic culture–This I hate with a passion!

Do I sympathize with our enemies?  With terrorists?  To the extent that I understand why they hate America–yes. As far as understanding their anger and desperation at being subjugated–yes.  Do I condone their actions? NO!!  EMPHATICALLY, NO!!

Would I be just as frustrated as them, if America were under Soviet or Chinese occupation?  I would imagine so!!  Wouldn’t you?

Under Obama, our dear empire has begun using the same tactics to topple America as it has used to topple and subjugate other countries.  We are being relieved of our ‘favored nation’ status within the empire.  We are being brought down to be on par with the rest of the citizens of this new global empire.

Our economy, our independence, and our pride, will be destroyed–and God will allow it to happen.  The people who are dismantling America are being used as the hand of God, to bring His judgment upon us.  Chaos will overtake America.  But, rather than cry out to God in repentance, we will most likely ‘cry Uncle’ (Sam!).  Once we are totally broken, the empire will create a solution that will be our ‘salvation’. We’ll no longer demand special treatment, our ‘entitlement mentality’ will be broken.  We’ll be humbled and willing to sacrifice everything that was our birthright–just for a bowl of soup.

Our currency will be replaced.  We’ll start out fresh, on a new, ‘level playing field’ with the rest of the world, economically.  Our people will depend on the government.  Our right to choose our own leaders, make our own laws, seek redress in court–will be curtailed.  Our personal liberties and individual rights will be surrendered for ‘security’.  Our laws will no longer have God’s standards and truth as their basis, but will instead be based on the good of the empire, the good of all.

In order to give us the best chance at freedom in a world of sinful men, God inspired a fairly elaborate form of government that depended on a series of checks and balances–this ensured that power was not concentrated in any one part of the government.  He  modeled it on Himself (The Father as law giver, the Holy Spirit as the convictor of sin, Jesus as the righteous judge).

In order to endure, this government would require people of upright character to participate and to make sure that the rules were followed.  This government would be able to withstand attempts by an individual, or even a few people, to bring it down.  What it could not endure was widespread corruption, and collusion in regards to looking for ways around the rules.

As our people became more and more corrupt, and looking for loopholes became the ‘American way’, cracks began to form in the foundation.  Before long, beady-eyed little vermin spotted the openings, enlarged them a bit and began to come in, then bigger ones came along and followed suit.  Soon the whole structure was infested and in danger of toppling. That is where we woke up to find ourselves in 2008.

There seems to be a universal principle that, if you will not show restraint, restraint will be placed upon you by outside forces; if you will not take responsibility, it will be imposed on you by outside forces.  So, if you are not sure what sins America is being judged for, look for what has been taken away, and there you’ll find what we misused.  Look for what restraints are placed upon us, and you’ll see what freedoms we abused.  When we forgot that we were ‘one nation under God’, that there was a God in authority above us, that’s when the trouble began.

While our multinational corporations, government, and military were out conquering and subjugating the rest of the world (under the guise of bringing peace and safety), America enjoyed the spoils.  Most of us weren’t concerned or turned a blind eye–if we were even aware of what was going on.  It’s not like our media was telling us . . .

In fact, for most of us, we were busy pursuing our own happiness and prosperity, and our concerns extended little farther than the boundaries of our own backyards.  Oh sure, we might have volunteered a bit, or written a check here and there–but how often did we protest about . . . anything?  When was the last time any of us spoke up, or protested, on behalf of someone else–even someone in our own community?

Like it or not, we Americans are basically self interested, laid back, ‘live and let live’ kind of people–although we can be compassionate and generous.  It is this laid back attitude of the populace that has allowed those of totally opposite nature to become powerful in America.  And it is because we see ourselves as laid back, ‘live and let live’ people who aren’t hurting anyone else, that we are absolutely perplexed as to why we are hated!  I’ll spell it out again:  it’s because those in power, the ‘elite’, are not like you and I.

Their nature is polar opposite to ours.  They lust for power and wealth and will do anything to have it!  Power corrupts and I would venture to say that many of them are beyond redemption.  We are hated because these are the people that have become the ‘face of America’ to people throughout the rest of the world.  Most of our enemies don’t distinguish the difference between the empire of the American elites, and the actual ‘American People’.  Therefore, Americans are hated all over the world.  (And ‘Christian’ if seen as synonomous with ‘American’, becomes an abomination.)

So . . . now some people are waking up to what is, and has been, going on.  Maybe enough people will wake up and repent, and act, to be able to slow down this train that’s barrelling towards destruction.  I sure hope so!

But you can rest assured that, even if we hold off their (the ‘elite’s’) designs on America for now, in 20 years they will be accomplished, regardless. That is because, they have stolen the hearts and minds of our children, right from under our noses.

Why Afghanistan?

Why Haiti?

Will They Take Away Our Children?
Is Your TV Stealing Your Soul?



The powerful tools they use, are the reason children that are raised in church leave the church and never look back!!

There is a whole group of people that we, in our modern society have ignored, to our own peril. Certain people are just born gatekeepers–watchmen if you will, or whistle blowers.

If you look at our worst disasters, there were people who had been trying to warn us. The 9/11 attacks . . . Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme . . . protests against the Vietnam War . . . What about the ‘Green Revolution’, genetically modified crops, exploitation by multinational corporations . . . (oh, I’ll bet you haven’t heard about the results of some of these things, but you will).

Our failure to listen has brought us to where we are now–and there is more to come. We have been ‘sowing bad seed’ for quite awhile. Not all of it has reached fruit-bearing age yet.

Why is it that our society has this blind spot? Certain people are just more tuned in to their intuition, the Spirit of God and/or the ‘collective consciousness’. They are able to forecast trends or see a few steps ahead of the masses.

If a person uses this gift to advance himself by channeling it into creating a business, it rises to the top, they become well-known and we marvel at their foresight. But those who try to use it for the well-being of others, to warn them of impending problems, we label as extremists or nut jobs. Why is this?

One of my theories is that, in our time at least, what they say has tended to conflict with somebody’s bottom line. We have elevated the corporation to the status of a god–and God forbid we should do or say anything that questions the motives, or threatens the intentions of this god!

Capitalism is good, but not perfect. (I am a capitalist too, make no mistake, because I don’t know of a better system. But, in its present form, I think it is completely corrupt–a system that perpetrates greed, exploitation, and corruption.) It is seriously flawed if it operates without ethical oversight.

The reverence and worship for the American Corporation that we hear today, in the words of so many proponents of capitalism, reveals their blind spot, their Achille’s heel if you will. They are under its spell.

Are we starting to see the character of this god yet? Have all the fiascos of the last couple of decades, and especially the last year, not caught our attention? CORRUPT! Without our watchmen at the gates, corruption thrives! Our politicians have long been ‘in bed’ with these multinational corporations (and international banks–just another kind of multinational corporation). Together, they have formed a shadow government that is really in charge of much of the world *.

And who is it that stands to gain the most from silencing the voices of the gatekeepers? The corrupt political/corporate/banking government. They marginalize and discredit the voices of opposition. This is always the way it works–discredit the witness.

But, here is something to consider–what do the parties involved stand to gain? Doesn’t the fact that the gatekeeper/whistleblower has nothing to gain lend him more credibility? Doesn’t the fact that he is willing to speak out, sometimes at GREAT personal risk, lend him even greater credibility? Can we not believe that not everyone can be bought, that not everyone is motivated by greed? No, instead we are suspicious of someone whose motives we can’t uncover.

There IS a certain breed of people, motivated by the desire for justice and the welfare of others! Many people can’t understand such a motivation, and believe it is just a cover for something sinister, or for a mental defect. But most of us respect that calling if it is channeled into a career as a pastor, teacher or social worker!

It is time to wake up and realize that what we have needed has been here all along. Every society has its watchmen. They are legitimate in their calling, and they are our first line of defense–against corruption, tyranny, exploitation, etc., etc, etc. It’s time to seek them out and listen!!

* The Bible refers to this present-day political/corporate/banking government, in Revelation, as ‘Babylon the Great’. Some call it ‘The Whore of Babylon’.

 

It’s Time To Push Back!

America–Hijacked!!

 

 

Selling Out Poland

Well, Obama has made another national security ‘blunder’. He has reneged on our assurance of protection to Poland by giving up on the missile defense shield–in order to grovel for Russia’s love.

This president is consistently showing his support for Marxists and dictators. People who say he doesn’t realize have just not been ready to face the ugly truth. The timing of his announcement was the 70th anniversary of Poland’s invasion by Germany! Not only did he make the announcement that he would no longer protect Poland–he made it in capital letters, boldfaced print, underlined and with exclamation points!

If that is not enough, if you still think it was ignorance or an oversight, or whatever, you need to look at the whole picture so far:

* He continues to meet with dictators.
* He supports the corrupt, constitution-violating, ousted leader of Honduras who was moving to establish himself as a dictator.
* He had to be pushed to make any statement of support for the patriots in Iran that were protesting the fraudulent elections that allowed a madman to stay in power in their country.
* He ‘honored’ the British with an absolutely pathetic gift –a boxed set of American movie classics (as though they couldn’t be purchased by anybody, anywhere!) The British, by contrast, gave him a priceless gift with deep meaning-an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of a British anti-slave ship!
* He returned a special gift from Britain (a bust of Churchill).

It’s not that any of these things, taken alone, couldn’t be rationalized, justified, explained away or forgiven. It is the consistency of his actions that is concerning. Obama consistently says one thing and does another. You have the inner spirit of the man (expressed through his actions) and the clever facade that hides it (expressed through his words). This is where the old truism comes in–‘ACTIONS speak louder than words’!

There are 2 Obamas: the one talking and the one acting. Tease the two apart and you will have 2 very different results-the compendium of all he says and the embodiment of all he does.

Which do you think is the truth? Which one matters the most?



The American Paradigm Is About To Be Shattered!

(written 2/6/09)

Part I

We are usually unaware of how our perceptions and understanding of life are filtered through our paradigm. That paradigm is shaped by our experiences, our friends, our family , the people in our lives, the media. ‘That’s just the way things are’ or ‘That’s how things work’ or ‘That’s how things should be’—that is our paradigm. Anything outside of our paradigm is ‘impossible’ or ‘unthinkable’. Few of us think to question it. But, the American Paradigm is about to be shattered.

When we have observed people with whom nothing makes sense , whose explanations are full of holes, and whose actions seem illogical at best, we begin to doubt their honesty. Most honest people operate from the paradigm that others are honest and it is very confusing to them when confronted with the incongruency of a dishonest person. Other dishonest people aren’t fooled, because they operate from a different paradigm—one that allows for the possibility than any other person may also be dishonest. Innocence, naivette, gullibility, call it what you will. Take a small child who believes in Santa Claus and confront him with the truth. He will call upon the most absurd explanations to preserve his paradigm! When our paradigm is shown to be false, we are shaken to our core.

God often teaches us by patterns. For the past few years, and certainly accelerating in recent days, are the uncoverings of dishonesty in people and institutions that we have trusted. Lets assume the acceleration is God’s way of speaking LOUDLY to us, of putting an exclamation point at the end of the lesson. What might this lesson be? What might each of these uncoverings be foreshadowing? Are they beginning to put some cracks into the American Paradigm . . . beginning to open our eyes to things that seemed unthinkable . . . impossible?

When you look around you does everything seem to be coming apart? Is everything happening too quickly to make sense of it? Are we calling upon absurd explanations to make sense of all that is unfolding around us? ‘The American People’ are very optimistic, generous, and naïve. That is at the core of our paradigm. But, what if there really is evil afoot? What if there really are people who are not concerned with the common good, but rather, with their own ambitions? No, that’s not news, we can all agree on that. We’ve seen that for a number of years, and certainly, accelerating in recent days. But what might this foreshadow? What might God want to open our eyes to . . . to warn us about? What is coming?

Part II

The president of the United States loves The American People and seeks for their good, for their best . . . the president of the United States is a benevolent leader whose patriotism is beyond question . . . the president represents the will of those who elected him . . . the president’s will is to honor the high calling of serving and protecting The American People. Paradigm.

What if his will superseded the will of The American People? What if he was neither serving, nor protecting The American People? When we observed him, would nothing make sense? Would his explanations be full of holes? Would his actions seem illogical at best?

If he were corrupt, dishonest and concerned with his own ambitions . . . if he was not working for our good . . . if he was not benevolent . . . not patriotic . . . what could his agenda possibly be? Who is more powerful than the President of the United States? Who COULD BE more powerful than the President . . . ? What more could he desire? Power corrupts.

What if he felt called, chosen, destined . . . to unite and lead the world?

Part III

What would it take to unite the world? Country against country, clan against clan, family against family . . . what could possibly be big enough to unite the world? It must be a believable threat. Whether or not it be true is irrelevant. What is crucial is that the threat be credible to people all over the world and soon affect them personally. A threat that no one could escape. A terrible shadow looming over all of mankind. An urgent mandate to unite against a common threat. Something huge enough to make us oblivious to a shift of power, or to clamor for it, in light of the threat we faced. Global warming . . . economic collapse . . . pandemic . . . natural disaster . . .

Part II Revisited

What if he felt called, chosen, destined . . . to unite and lead the world?

Would his patriotism . . . to the entire world . . . not be more noble than allegiance to just one country?

In the name of world peace and unity he could undermine his country . . . disarm them . . . reverse the old policies . . . make concessions . . . negotiate with terrorists . . . empower the downtrodden . . . reconcile age-old enemies . . . and be revered as . . . Savior Of The World.

A new paradigm bursts forth! The deceptive explanations, the illogical actions . . . it all fits now. It all makes sense. All the pieces are coming together-quickly. The confusion gives way to clarity, the nagging doubts become certainty, the senseless now makes perfect sense. Thunder resounds as The American Paradigm is shattered and crumbles to the ground. Tears fall like rain and the people shriek in rage . . . betrayed, betrayed, betrayed . . .

 

Oh Yes He Does Get It!
