Will there be a war with Iran?  Will America fall?  Will there soon be an attack on America?

Listen as Jim Haddock explains end-time Bible prophecy from the book of Daniel!


If you want to know the truth, you are going to have to look for it.  The mainstream media seems to have been transformed into the propaganda arm of the US government.  The reports I see show that things are far worse, in regards to Fukushima, than we are being told.  I’ll give a brief overview, but there’s more than I can cover.

Citizens in Japan have begun testing and compiling their own dataChildren have been getting sick outside the ‘danger zone’An earless rabbit was born near the damaged nuclear plant, and now three earless rabbits have been born in southwestern China–not in the direction the wind usually blows.

Three reactors melted down in the early hours following the March earthquake and tsunami.  An explosion occurred several days later, in reactor #3, that appears to have released a large amount of various radioactive particles into the atmosphere.

(At that time, if I remember correctly, the jet stream took the particles across the Pacific Ocean, through Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, then looped far north into Canada and came down over the northeastern U.S.)

Radioactive iodine was later detected at unsafe levels in rainwater in various U.S. locations and made it into tap water, at high levels, in some places.  Philadelphia was one of those places, and they are now questioning a ten week spike in infant mortality there (the video appears to have been removed from the main Fox news site).

Most recently, two days ago, there appears to have been another large release of radioactivity from the spent fuel pool at reactor #4.  (skip ahead to about 1:45–it continues from there)  Depending on the wind patterns, that release may already be reaching Alaska and/or the U.S. west coast.

This isn’t going to be resolved for many months, or even years, from the look of it.  A filtration system, that was supposed to remove radioactive cesium from  contaminated water at the site, reached its capacity after just a few hours–rather than months, as had been expected.  Levels of radiation at reactors one and two appear to be rising.  There is widespread contamination of groundwater.  Curium-244 has been detected (this element requires a lead shield 20 times thicker than what is needed to protect against radiation from plutonium-238).

The sum total of all the information is that the plant is too hot to cover or contain–and will continue to be for quite some time.  Further explosions are still possible.  Radiation is constantly being released into the air and water.  The contamination is widespread.  (I even read somewhere that it had not taken long for it to reach the southern hemisphere.  I recall seeing an image of a giant storm rotating in the Pacific that was actually causing the wind to reverse its usual direction in some places.  I don’t know if that storm was responsible or not, but it was definitely mixing the air between the northern and southern hemispheres.)

It is not by accident that the news was withheld.  The more we learn, the harder it is to wrap our minds around the immensity of this disaster and its implications for all of us.  The news will continue to leak out slowly.

Apparently the clever psychological strategy being followed is to widely deny, downplay, or suppress the information in the early days then, several weeks later, some reports are given that show that things were a bit worse than first thought, several weeks beyond that, a few reports show that even those reports were optimistic, etc.  This is just one way that information is manipulated.  (As much as I hate these tactics, I can understand why.  Having spent almost two years trying to show people what’s going on, I’ve found that very few people want to know, and most people can’t handle the truth if the news is bad.)

Because the decision was made for the EPA to pretty much stop monitoring, we really don’t know how much exposure any of us has had.  My suggestion, if you live in Alaska (especially), or the west coast of the U.S., is to find some way to be tested for radiation exposure–and share the findings.  As in Japan, the truth probably isn’t going to come out until concerned individuals take matters into their own hands, to do testing and to share the results.

We don’t know which, of a number of radioactive elements, we may have been exposed to–nor do we know what effect it will have on our health.  This summer, we will begin learning of different animals whose offspring are born abnormal.  In the fall, most assuredly, Japanese babies will begin being born that are not normal or don’t survive.  Unfortunately, some newborn babies in the U.S., and even around the world, are going to show the effects of their exposure, as they were developing in their mother’s womb.

Now all this is bad enough, and I wish it was the end of the story . . . but, as things appear right now, there is potentially more bad news on the horizon–and closer to home.

Right now we are experiencing tremendous flooding throughout the midwest.  Several dams have been pushed to their limits and the water continues to rise.  One of these places is near Omaha, near the Missouri River, where the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant has been encircled by floodwaters.

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant

I have not been following the story closely, but I know that there have already been some problems there.  The press, understandably, has been trying to downplay any danger.  (As one forum participant noted “Whenever a government official uses the words “rumor” and/or “conspiracy theory”, I assume that the rumor is true and they are trying to do some spin control.”)

The impending disaster seems to be the eight feet of snow on the ground (upstream) in Montana, rains from the past few weeks that are still moving downstream from their source, and heavy rains forecast for the next few days.  As I mentioned, most of the dam reservoirs are already at capacity.

Both the Fukushima and the Fort Calhoun stories are playing out as I write this post.  I have found the information on a site called ‘enenews.com‘.  It collects information from a wide variety of sources,  gives brief summaries which are easy to keep up with, and links to the original stories.

By the time most of you read this, more will be happening.  I urge you to keep up with the news yourself–it’s out there, but it’s not going to come to your TV screen via cable!

This isn’t news I want to post. or believe.  Summer is my favorite time of year, and I’d love to spend every moment of it outdoors.  However, thanks to the persistence of Nathan Leal (4-5-11 broadcast here), I’ve decided to at least consider the fact that we may currently be receiving radioactive fallout over the entire United States.  What’s worse, this radioactive fallout may continue to drop over the U.S. for months.

(The current event has now been upgraded to a level 7 event (4/11/11).)

I recently took the time to watch a documentary on the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. (I couldn’t find the same YouTube channel where I watched it, but this is the same video.  It’s 1.5 hours long and is called ‘The Battle for Chernobyl’)  It is good ‘background’ for understanding the challenges we may be facing.

The thing to note now, is that the Fukushima nuclear plant has ten times the radioactive fuel that Chernobyl had, so its potential effect is much greater.

I’ve heard it said that simply ‘pouring concrete over’ the Fukushima plant (as they ended up doing at Chernobyl) is not as easy as one might imagine.  From watching the Chernobyl documentary, it became apparent that such an endeavor was both very risky and very complex.  Add to that, I have heard that Japan has no cement mixers and lacks the raw materials for making cement, and that such things would have to be imported before any such construction could begin.

I don’t claim to be your best source of news on this nuclear disaster.  In fact, I only occasionally look for info. on the situation.  As well as the links above, here is another source to investigate, as you seek out the truth for yourself:

Suite 101.com :   April 9, 2011 West Coast Radiation Update and Urgent Warning

(Update:  here is a site with continuing credible, honest analysis–by a nuclear scientist without any apparent agenda–of what is happening at Fukushima.)

There is plenty of info out there, about what supplements you can take, etc.  I’m not going to get into that.  You can seek out the information and pray as to what God would have you do for yourself and your family.  What I am going to do–hopefully–is help you learn  how to ‘visualize’ the radiation that may be falling into your environment.  Once you are aware of it, you can decide what you will do to minimize your exposure.

I will use Iodine 131 to explain.  In many ways, Iodine 131 is the least harmful of the radioactive elements that may reach us from Fukushima.  It is not the only radioactive element that may impact us though. But, for the sake of simplicity, I will just talk about this one.

According to Wikipedia, the ‘half life’ of iodine 131 is about 8 days.  Here is what that ‘half life’ means, in practical terms:

  • Day zero:
  • ——-  particles are 100% radioactive
  • Day 8:
  • ——-  50% radioactive  (half of day zero’s radioactivity is gone)
  • Day 16:
  • ——-  25% radioactive  (half of eight days ago’s radioactivity is gone)
  • Day 24:
  • ——-  12.5% radioactive (half of eight days ago’s radioactivity is gone)
  • Day 32:
  • ——-  6.25% radioactive (half of eight days ago’s radioactivity is gone)
  • Day 40:
  • ——-  3.125% radioactive (half of eight days ago’s radioactivity is gone)

The length of time for the radioactivity to drop to a ‘safe’ level depends on how much radioactivity you begin with.  Someone in your family is going to have to do the math.

So, for simplicity’s sake, lets say there was one event that released radiation and you received fallout one time.  You did the math and determined that, for it to be ‘safe’, you needed the radiation to be reduced to 25% of what it was on the day your received the fallout.  In that case, you would need to avoid the radiation for 16 days.

How would you avoid the radiation?  According to my understanding (and I am not an expert), these are some of the things you’d need to consider (we will assume the fallout came as rain):

  • You will not want to get the rain on you, or drink it (that goes for Fido too).
  • If you get it on you, it would be best to take off your clothes before coming inside–and leave them outside.
  • It would be best to dry off outside, and leave the towel outside.  (You do not want to leave a wet, radioactive trail through the house.)
  • Come inside and shower and shampoo.

Now you are safe inside your home–pretty much.  If you can stay inside for the next 16 days–great, not much to worry about!  That includes not having anything from outside coming in during that time–no pets or visitors tracking in,  no rain leaks, and no fresh breezes.

Now, curl up with a warm drink and look out the window.  Lets remember when it was raining and bringing down the radioactive fallout . . .

Here’s what happens outside:  Every where the rain falls is becoming covered with radioactive fallout.  Wherever puddles form, the radioactivity is higher.  If you collect rain in a rainbarrel, it will become a big radioactivity emitter until the radiation inside it has died down (decayed).

Notice that almost everything gets wet in the rain . . . every table, every chair, every wire, every leaf, every bird, every window, every inch of your roof, etc.

Now, imagine that everything that is wet is glowing orange.  Even after it dries, it continues to glow orange . . . because ‘drying’ just means that the water  has evaporated, but the radioactive dust remains.  Imagine everything that was wet as if it is now covered with a glowing orange dust.

When the wind blows, orange dust blows. Now, even places that didn’t get wet have their share of radioactive dust–this includes your porch.  (And inside your house, if the windows are open.)

All this radioactive dust, that is so easily blown around, is why you do not want Fido to go out, if it can be avoided.  If he must, imagine him afterwards, covered in orange, glowing dust (fur, feet, inside lungs now, etc.) .  Meet him outside the door and clean him up as best you can, then take him to the tub and rinse him down.

While in the bathroom, put your clothes in a trash bag. Take the bag of clothes, and Fido’s wet towel to the door, wiping the imaginary glowing orange dust off the floor behind you as you go.  Put the towel and the bag of clothes outside the door and plan to leave them there until ‘safe’ day.  (You’ll be doing lots of laundry that day!)  Go back in and take a shower.  After all this trouble, you may decide to give Fido just one meal a day for awhile!

Back to looking out the window . . . Notice again, that the orange glowing dust is everywhere.  Even when you are in the house, some of that glowing orange dust is not far away from you–because the radioactivity simply goes through walls, roof, windows, etc.  Not much is actually on the walls or windows–but if you have a big tree close to the house, notice that every single leaf is glowing orange and sending radioactivity towards you.  The ground is also glowing orange and sending up radioactivity.  The roof is glowing orange as radioactivity shines down on you from above.  And if water typically runs into your basement, orange radioactivity is shining up on you from there too.

Now, take stock of everything that is near your house–bushes, trees, rainbarrel (temporary radioactivity emitter), etc.   Imagine your walls are just a thin sheet of plastic, and visualize what is on the other side of the walls.   Now that you know where the radioactive particles are resting outside, you may want to consider finding a sitting place that  is as far away from radioactivity as possible.  (A room with no windows may not be the best place, if there are bushes and trees close to the walls outside–conversely, a room full of windows may be ok, if the floor is above ground level and there is nothing outside near the walls or windows of the room.)

So, this is how you live until ‘safe day’ . . . which is great, if there is only one ‘event’ and you receive fallout only once . . .  But lets say the threat is ongoing, and you receive another rainstorm on day 10 . . .  all of a sudden things get really complicated.

Now, the previous, partly decayed (no longer 100%) radioactive dust is washed off surfaces by the rain (new, contaminated rain).  Imagine it glowing radioactive red.  The old dust isn’t gone, it’s just mixed in with the rain, and ends up on the ground, making it the most radioactive surface–imagine it glowing and swirling red and orange.  Everything else is glowing red and tomorrow will be a radioactive red dust that will begin its process of decay.

The ground (and your rain barrel) now have the highest radioactivity.  Time to find out how much fallout you were exposed to this time and ‘reset’ the clock for how long you’ll need to stay inside before it’s ‘safe’.  Now the math is getting complicated, because you have to keep track of the old fallout and the new fallout.  And, every time it rains, it gets harder to figure out.

This is just one scenario.  It may not be that bad.  It may be that you are only getting trace amounts each time–but if you don’t know how much, and you aren’t doing the math: how do you know when you’ve had too much and need to stay inside awhile and take precautions?  Is it when it has rained twice?  Ten times? Twenty times?  Or is it when you’ve gotten two inches of rain?  Six inches?  Sixteen?  It is virtually impossible to know if you are not getting accurate information about what you are being exposed to and how much.

Lets say though, for the sake of argument, that by the grace of God we DO only get trace amounts throughout the summer, that it is only Iodine 131,  and that they are able to stop the radiation leakage soon.  This is an absolute best case, most optimistic scenario . . . and in my opinion, not likely.  But, if we are this fortunate, what do you need to do, to minimize your risk?

  • Rather than open windows, use  a/c.
  • Use good filters, and change them often.
  • Leave contaminated things outside the house.
  • Minimize what contamination you track and carry into the house.
  • Shower and shampoo after coming in from outdoors.
  • Wash your pets (very) often.
  • Keep pets in as much as possible.
  • Stay in as much as possible so you aren’t breathing in radioactive dust.
  • Wear a dust mask (over  mouth and nose) when outdoors.
  • Don’t collect rainwater unless you know it isn’t contaminated.
  • Wait a month or so to use rainwater you’ve recently collected.

If you really need to grow food outside, here are some ideas:

  • Plan to use a lot of tap water this summer–for cleaning the plants often, and for watering them.
  • Rinse the plants (and especially the edible parts) daily, taking care not to splash mud back onto the plants.
  • Consider covering the ground with plastic and planting through holes in the plastic.  If you use big staples or rocks to hold down the plastic, you can lift it up when you water (with tap water). This will help to reduce the amount of radioactive water the roots take up.
  • Plant things that don’t need to be eaten right away (like dried beans, dried corn, etc.).
  • Plan to can your produce and wait a few months to eat it.
  • Skip the greens, for now.  If you really want to eat vegetables fresh from the garden, grow something that can be washed and peeled.  Be sure to rinse the plants daily while they’re growing, and wash and peel before eating.
  • My guess is that root vegetables (carrots, turnips, potatoes, radishes, etc.) are probably not a good choice.  But, if you insist–cover the ground with plastic (as mentioned above) and be sure to wash the leaves of the plants daily, because plants do absorb things through their leaves.
  • Realize that you are increasing your risk by being outside.  Wear a dust mask.  Wear a hat.  Clean yourself up as much as possible before going inside.   Leave your clothes at the door.  Don’t track into the house.  Shower and shampoo.

Remember, like I said–this is a BEST case scenario and these suggestions are just a starting point, because things may not go this well at all.

You saw that for Iodine 131 (whose half-life is 8 days) to decay to 3% takes about 6 weeks.  The other possible radioactive contaminants have half-lives of many years–that means many years to be reduced from 100% just to 50%.

Most of the precautions listed above are not going to be anywhere near sufficient if we receive fallout of anything other than Iodine 131–or if we receive more than trace amounts of it (Iodine 131).

(Perhaps now it is a bit easier to understand why some people are so opposed to nuclear energy–and why some people are making such a ‘big fuss’ about what is going on now.)

For now, not much is being said.  For now, most people prefer to believe everything is ok (and those who may potentially have legal liability prefer it that way too).  But that doesn’t mean nothing is happening! That is precisely how the Chernobyl event was handled (and the BP spill . . .?).

For a nation that is prone to denial, an invisible, unreported danger is the easiest of all to ignore!

They want to drive us to our knees.

Well, actually, I don’t think they care how it affects us.  (But maybe once we are ‘on our knees’ we will begin to repent . . .)  I have believed, for quite some time, that the plan of the elite has been to break and humble America.  And with the level of arrogance and sinfulness we display (and are virtually unaware of), it is probably warranted.  Here’s a good article about the tanking of our economy by so many ‘inept’ leaders and ‘bad luck’ and ‘coincidental events’.  Yeah, you get my drift.


(I know nothing about this author or website  and cannot confirm or deny anything found there.)

I believe we are living through the beginning of the fulfillment of the destruction of the capitalist world economy (Whore of Babylon). . . ‘they will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.’

I believe that the prophecies will be fulfilled both figuratively and literally.  Keep in mind, what is happening can’t happen without God’s permission.  The sinfulness of our nation has become a stench to God and the time of His judgment has come to us.  Right now, we are in the  ‘eye of the storm’–a brief requiem of peace, a time for contemplation and, hopefully, repentance.

But ‘brace yourself’, ‘hide yourself in God’, because if America doesn’t repent–and soon!–the world’s capitalist economy will fail beyond remedy, and you will go down with it

.  As The Beast (New World Order) rises up beneath the Whore of Babylon (capitalist world economy), in prophecy, the rest of the Scripture will also be fulfilled:  ‘ . . . they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.  For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose . . .’

It seems that everyone is preaching investment in gold.  That’s great–if our national economy goes back to the gold standard.  But as a personal hedge–I don’t know.  I may very well be wrong, but my gut tells me gold will not be your savior.  I seem to recall a verse, somewhere in the Bible, about people throwing their worthless gold in the streets . . .

If this is an orchestrated collapse of our economy (which I believe it is) and judgment from God (which I believe it is)–those who put their trust in gold will be dismayed.  Neither God, nor the elite, is oblivious to the fact that many people are investing in gold–the very sort of middle and upper-middle class people the elite are deliberately trying to bankrupt.  My suspicion is that they will ‘cut you off at the pass’.

Who will be making the rules for the change to a new, world currency?  The same people that have orchestrated the dollar’s collapse!  This is their plan to equalize standards of living worldwide while, of course, enriching themselves even more.  I don’t think you’re going to find a way around it!  Especially if it’s a judgment from God!!

(Just a thought–who are you buying your gold from?  Might it be from wealthy bankers?  From the elite?  Who stands to profit now?  And who is the final winner if gold, somehow, loses its value before you can cash yours in?)

If people would spend half the time searching their hearts and praying, that they are now spending on trying to outsmart things they are seeing on the horizon . . .

Over and over again, God stresses that He will take care of those who put their trust in Him–that nothing else can be trusted.  He owns the cattle on a thousand hills . . . He feeds the sparrows and clothes the lilies . . . He fed Elijah in the wilderness . . . He brought water out of a rock-twice-for the children of Israel . . . and sent them manna every morning for forty years . . . He brings you rain . . . and sunshine . . . and causes all the processes that create soil, fertile soil, for you to grow your crops in . . .

Please wake up!  Part of what we are being judged for is our arrogance, and putting our faith in ourselves . . . not remembering the God that is above us.

‘In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’  Strange words . . . what do they mean?  How about this for a translation:

In her arrogant heart she believes, that because she is married to the king, she will see no hardship.

Can you see how this applies to America?  The western world is the origin of  The Whore of Babylon.  America is at her heart–American multinational corporations, our government (and our military, in the service of our economic ‘interests’), our economy, etc.  America has seen great prosperity and blessing from God, for so long that we take it for granted.

I believe, deep in the American psyche, we have beliefs that we may not even be consciously aware of–but our actions and attitudes betray them.  We rightly believe we are married to the King of Heaven*.  We know He will never divorce us.  We know He will never die.  Therefore, we live as though we will never see hardship or judgment, because we know we are the ‘apple of His eye’!  But we err greatly, because our hearts have strayed far from Him!

How long would a queen endure if she denied the king admittance to her chambers?  If she ran around with other lovers?  If she condoned horrible acts to be committed in his kingdom?  If she laughed, and scoffed, at the authority of her king?  If she exalted another as king, in his place?  (Think $$$$$ . . . )

So, to conclude the Scripture above:

‘In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’

Therefore in one day  her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine.  She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.’

‘When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.  Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry . . . They will say, “The fruit you longed for is gone from you.  All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered“.

The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment.  They will weep and mourn and cry out:  “Woe!  Woe, O great city . . . in one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!”

Every sea captain and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off.  When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, “Was there ever a city like this great city?”

‘This woman that you saw (The Whore of Babylon) is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.’

And what is this great city, that rules over the kings of the earth (by way of the almighty dollar)?  Where was the ‘World Trade Center’?  Where is Wall Street? New York City.  Not only is our economy going to crash and rise no more–great judgment is promised to the city where her power lies.  Today, that is New York City.

It is clear to me that New York City will perish in a nuclear attack.  Everyone will ‘stand far off’, ‘terrified at her torment’.  ‘They will eat her flesh and burn her with fire’–an apt description of nuclear devastation.  ‘With such (great) violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.’

‘. . . Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done.  Mix her a double portion from her own cup.  Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself.’

note: the verse does not say ‘the great city Babylon’, it says ‘the great city of Babylon’–Babylon being the corrupt, worldwide capitalist economy that is based in America.

I don’t know how soon it will happen.  If you live in, or near New York City, God may have begun to speak to your heart:

‘Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.’

I have pondered whether this means to come out of New York City, or out of the capitalist money system.  I think it means both. (If you don’t live near New York, yet God is speaking to your heart about depending less and less on the capitalist system, then that confirms it.)

If God has been speaking to your heart about any of this, please comment.  What you say may be the confirmation someone has prayed to God for, about what they feel He is speaking to their heart.

It is clear that New York City, being the seat of the world capitalist economy, will sustain the physical attack–but not all the sins were committed in or by New York City.  I think, by being involved in the capitalist system (especially by way of Wall Street investments etc.) we become complicit in the crimes and atrocities committed by our multinational corporations, with the money we invest in them.  And, if we are involved, we will receive the plagues of judgment.

Now, to what extent do we need to ‘come out’ and when?  I don’t know.  You will need to seek God for wisdom in that.  You already know, that at some point you will have to come out of it, if you don’t want to take The Mark of the Beast’.  The first step of such a radical change in your life has to be making the decision to be willing, and getting used to the idea.  At the very least, I would say this warning reinforces the idea that you should not put your trust in gold but rather, in God.

It is always better to trust God sooner than later, and I believe there are blessings in store for those who do, that will be missed by those who wait until the last minute–if they are even able to discern what is going on, by that point.  (Remember, God will send a ‘powerful delusion’ upon those who don’t love the truth.  How do you know that what I’m telling you today isn’t the truth He is trying to send to you?)

* There is much evidence that America is descended from the ‘lost’ ten tribes of Israel.  If this is true, it confirms that we are most certainly experiencing God’s judgment!
