“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.”  Daniel 7:7

“Then I wanted to know the true meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left.”  Daniel 7:19

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.  The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom.”   Daniel 7:23-24

So, who is the fourth beast? (Also see:  ‘Iron and Clay’) My strong opinion is that it is a coalition of Muslim Socialist nations, headed by the new Amerika (a Socialist, Islamic re-incarnation of America).  Prominent in this coalition will be a Muslim Britain, a Muslim Russia, and a Muslim India.  (See my previous posts about the first, second and third beasts.)

“And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.  The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.”  Revelation 13:1-2

I believe that the seven heads of the beast represent America’s [pre-Obama] ruling elite.  Obama came to the presidency via the same channels, hence he is ‘of the seven’.  However, he and his high level backers are represented by the beast that rises up underneath the harlot and overthrows her.  It is quite possible that the ‘Council of [ten] Governors’ represents the ten horns that will be given authority to rule ‘for one hour’.

Back to the subject of the fourth beast . . . what we have lived through in the last two years has been a little glimpse of what it will be like. Think about the heavy handed way in which Obama has run this country since his election.  Remember the WAY in which things have been done–how things have been shoved down our throats.  Think about the total disrespect of our will . . . the absolute disregard of our rights and freedoms . . . the dehumanizing ways in which we are beginning to be treated . . .

If I am right about this, we are living through the birth of  The Fourth Beast.

Some distinguished, high-ranking, retired military leaders have come out recently, with their appraisals of Obama and to warn us of things that are happening in America.  I will add to this list as I learn of more.

Update 1/23/11:

Trunews interview with Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (1/11/11) discusses how Marxist ideology has overtaken America.

“Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea.  Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.”  Daniel 7:2-7

The second beast looked like a bear . . .

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’

I believe this must refer to Russia.  The bear is only a national emblem of Russia.

Interestingly, the name of Russia’s current president (Dmitry Medvedev) means bear (‘honey eater’).

I envision this beast reclining on one side, with the remains of its recent meal in its mouth–three ribs.  I believe this signifies that when it is told to ‘get up and eat your fill of flesh’,  it will have fairly recently conquered three countries.

I would keep my eye on the region between Russia and the Middle East.  Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are strategically located, and may very well be targets of future Russian land grabs.

I wish I had more to say about this second beast, but I will just have to add to the post later, if and when I learn more.  It does seem though, that the bear being ONLY the emblem of Russia, and the meaning of the name of Russia’s current leader being ‘bear’, is almost a deliberate reassurance that this is the correct interpretation–no matter how unlikely it seems.

Interpretation given in Daniel 7:17 is that each of the four beasts in Daniel’s vision is a kingdom ‘that will rise from the earth’.

We are also told that [the first three] beasts, at some point, were ‘ stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time’.  Daniel 7:12

The Fourth Kingdom–Iron and Clay

I have been struggling with prophecies for a long time–especially regarding ‘The Kings of the North’ and ‘The Kings of the South’ as laid out in Daniel 11th.  How appropriate that God would, in this 11th hour, lead me to a website called 11th Hour Info!  Apparently, this info was written (posted) sometime between 2003 and 2005.  I had never seen it before.

Some months ago, I had visited a website that identified Turkey as Magog, rather than Russia.  I agreed.  Unfortunately, I failed to bookmark the site.  Recently, events involving Turkey have led me to wonder just where that site was.  Today, I did a Google search to see if I could find it again–I didn’t.  However, I did find this site and what I believe to be extremely relevant information for all who want to understand what is happening today!!   (If I could, I would paste the page here in this blog!!)

I will have to take some time to examine this further, as well as beliefs I have held regarding the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.  In the meantime, I wanted to share it with you in the hopes that it would deepen your understanding.  Please consider it prayerfully.

First Beast Rising

Well, well, well . . . isn’t this interesting?

Far and away, my most popular post has been Did We Do This? (Haiti Earthquake, part 2) Sure, it was interesting to me too, at the time.  But it has been a little puzzling to me, in light of all the other events that are more in the forefront these days, that this particular blog should receive so much attention.

So, with that question in the back of my mind, when I came across The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti (by F. William Engdahl, 30 January 2010), I had to read it.  All of the following excerpts are taken from it–all emphases are mine.  (Please read the original article in its entirety, it contains links to all sources cited.)

“Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world’s richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas-outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuela.

Haiti, and the larger island of Hispaniola of which it is a part, has the geological fate that it straddles one of the world’s most active geological zones . . .

This vast mass of underwater plates are in constant motion, rubbing against each other . . .

The regions of convergence of such plates are also areas where vast volumes of oil and gas can be pushed upwards from the Earth’s mantle.”

(Could it be that we did indeed use HAARP to give the unstable geology there a little ‘push’?  And, I wonder if an earthquake might help bring the oil and gas a bit closer to the surface, where it would cost less to tap it?  )

“Aside from being prone to violent earthquakes, Haiti also happens to lie in a zone that, due to the unusual geographical intersection of its three tectonic plates, might well be straddling one of the world’s largest unexplored zones of oil and gas, as well as of valuable rare strategic minerals. The vast oil reserves of the Persian Gulf and of the region from the Red Sea into the Gulf of Aden are at a similar convergence zone of large tectonic plates, as are such oil-rich zones as Indonesia and the waters off the coast of California.”

“Notably, in 2005, a year after the Bush-Cheney Administration de facto deposed the democratically elected President of Haiti, Jean-Baptiste Aristide, a team of geologists from the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas began an ambitious and thorough two-phase mapping of all geological data of the Caribbean Basins. The project is due to be completed in 2011. Directed by Dr. Paul Mann, it is called “Caribbean Basins, Tectonics and Hydrocarbons.” It is all about determining as precisely as possible the relation between tectonic plates in the Caribbean and the potential for hydrocarbons―oil and gas.

(Now, who was it that had ties to Texas . . . ?)

Notably, the sponsors of the multi-million dollar research project under Mann are the world’s largest oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, the Anglo-Dutch Shell and BHP Billiton. . .

it is surprising that the region had not been mapped earlier. Now it emerges that major oil companies were at least generally aware of the huge oil potential of the region long ago, but apparently decided to keep it quiet.”

In October 2008 a consortium of oil companies led by Spain’s Repsol, together with Cuba’s state oil company, Cubapetroleo, announced discovery of one of the world’s largest oilfields in the deep water off Cuba. It is what oil geologists call a ‘Super-giant’ field. Estimates are that the Cuban field contains as much as 20 billion barrels of oil, making it the twelfth Super-giant oilfield discovered since 1996. The discovery also likely makes Cuba a new high-priority target for Pentagon destabilization and other nasty operations.

No doubt to the dismay of Washington, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev flew to Havana one month after the Cuban giant oil find to sign an agreement with acting-President Raul Castro for Russian oil companies to explore and develop Cuban oil.

Medvedev’s Russia-Cuba oil agreements came only a week after the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to meet the recuperating Fidel Castro and his brother Raul. The Chinese President signed an agreement to modernize Cuban ports and discussed Chinese purchase of Cuban raw materials. No doubt the mammoth new Cuban oil discovery was high on the Chinese agenda with Cuba.”

(Could competition be a motive to move quickly on this?)

“The remarkable geography of Haiti and Cuba and the discovery of world-class oil reserves in the waters off Cuba lend credence to anecdotal accounts of major oil discoveries in several parts of Haitian territory. It also could explain why two Bush Presidents and now special UN Haiti Envoy Bill Clinton have made Haiti such a priority. As well, it could explain why Washington and its NGO’s moved so quickly to remove– twice– the democratically elected President Aristide, whose economic program for Haiti included, among other items, proposals for developing Haitian natural resources for the benefit of the Haitian people.”

“In an interview with a Santo Domingo online paper, Leopoldo Espaillat Nanita, former head of the Dominican Petroleum Refinery (REFIDOMSA) stated, “there is a multinational conspiracy to illegally take the mineral resources of the Haitian people.” Haiti’s minerals include gold, the valuable strategic metal iridium and oil, apparently lots of it.”

” . . . when Aristide was President — up until his US-backed ouster during the Bush era in 2004 — he had developed and published in book form his national development plans. These plans included, for the first time, a detailed list of known sites where the resources of Haiti were located. The publication of the plan sparked a national debate over Haitian radio and in the media about the future of the country. Aristide’s plan was to implement a public-private partnership to ensure that the development of Haiti’s oil, gold and other valuable resources would benefit the national economy and the broader population, and not merely the five Haitian oligarchic families and their US backers, the so-called Chimeres or gangsters.

Since the ouster of Aristide in 2004, Haiti has been an occupied country, with a dubiously-elected President, Rene Preval, a controversial follower of IMF privatization mandates and reportedly tied to the Chimeres or Haitian oligarchs who backed the removal of Aristide. Notably, the US State Department refuses to permit the return of Aristide from South African exile.

Now, in the wake of the devastating earthquake of January 12, the United States military has taken control of Haiti’s four airports and presently has some 20,000 troops in the country. Journalists and international aid organizations have accused the US military of being more concerned with imposing military control, which it prefers  to call “security,” than with bringing urgently needed water, food and medicine from the airport sites to the population.

A US military occupation of Haiti under the guise of earthquake disaster ‘relief’ would give Washington and private business interests tied to it a geopolitical prize of the first order.”

Why Afghanistan?

American Empire

I am not a student of war. I don’t know the proper terminology, but I know what I see taking shape. I will describe it as best I can.

Russia and China are allied, and lately have been conducting joint military exercises. Russia has also conducted joint naval exercises with Venezuela and is presently working with Cuba to upgrade its military equipment.The Chinese subs that have recently been patrolling off our coasts could obviously be a hindrance to shipping traffic in the event of a war against the United States. And between Russia’s outposts of Cuba & Venezuela, the Gulf of Mexico could be blocked. It is probably safe to assume that the Chinese subs are capable of initiating an EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse) attack.

An EMP attack would destroy, in an instant, any unshielded electronic equipment within range. I would guess that means everything from a calculator to a jumbo jet–cell phones, computers, cars, digital thermostats, bank atms, gas pumps, cell phone towers, radio & tv broadcast equipment, etc. We would be without, transportation and communication. If it occurred in winter (which it almost certainly would), we would be without heat.

No means to get food, no heat, no news, no way to call for help, no way to contact family, stuck in place with no transportation and no idea of what’s going on. (How long will it take to realize that it isn’t an ‘ordinary’ blackout? Well–does your cell phone work? Does your calculator work? Does your car start?)

That is how the war would most likely begin–and because of the damage an EMP attack does, it could be years before all these electronic components could be replaced-if they were even available.

Chinese and Russian cyber attacks have mapped out our critical infrastructure and have left software in place that will allow them to seize control of our electrical power grid. Our water and sewage systems are also at risk. So, add to the above: no electricity, no water, and sewers backing up.

A cold, dark hell. For how long? Plenty long enough for what would come next.

Consider the present state of our military. Russia, who lost a protracted ‘war of attrition with Afghanistan’, now plays the part of ‘Brer Rabbit’ and concedes to let our military continue to exhaust its men and supplies in a location to which Russia controls evacuation and supply routes. Weary soldiers have served tour upon tour in some of the most desolate, extreme and spiritually oppressive locations on the face of the earth. And our blessed new leader (all hail) feels that this is an opportune time to begin disarming America by decreasing our military spending! If all that isn’t enough, figure in the constant pressure, here at home, to disarm the American people.

The first wave of invasion will be Russian, from the north. Alaska is just a skip and a jump from Russia. (As I understand it, the land is passable when the ground is frozen to a great enough depth, making winter the most attractive time of year for an incursion via Alaska.) The Russian tanks will roll in, cross Canada and flood the center of America. At the same time, Russian tanks in Venezuela will be moving to the North–and others will be moving into the Southeast via Cuba.

I’m sure there’s more. Our oil supplies can obviously be cut off in the Persian Gulf, but I think (until the real attack comes) that’s more likely to be a strategy to gain leverage over issues like permitting Iran and other Russian proxies to continue with their weapons programs.

Oh, did I forget to mention the new supersonic ‘Sizzler’ Russian antiship cruise missiles that can decimate a fleet of US aircraft carriers? Yeah, they’re passing those out to their friends too . . .

We are missing what is in plain sight!!

Start doing your own Google searches about these subjects. The warnings are out there, but we are falling apart in so many ways here at home, that we are nearly oblivious to the noose that is closing around us!

I was asked, by someone who was skeptical, ‘Why would Russia attack us?’. I don’t know. Do we have to have a reason first, to believe it could happen? My immediate response is-why wouldn’t they?

I guess it’s the old ‘glass half full or glass half empty’ conundrum. Some people look at things as being improbable unless there’s a good reason for them to happen, but I see things as probable unless there’s a good reason for them not to.

I can speculate as to why, or put myself in the place of a Russian or Chinese leader and see good reasons for it, but ‘why?’ is not really important to me. For me, the question is always ‘how?’

It’s important to remember-everyone is not like us. We all see the world differently. We all have different aspirations, different values. Just because we wouldn’t do something, doesn’t mean someone else wouldn’t see it as being a perfectly good option.

If you are a person who always has to know why, my reasons will probably seem lame, but here they are:

1. my intuition is telling me so
2. several people in Russia, at great personal risk, are trying to alert us to the coming danger
3. the Bible foretells it

Don’t get stuck at why!

Selling Out Poland

PLEASE Wake Up!!

Spiritual Wickedness In High Places

Oh Yes He Does Get It!

 

update 1/7/11:

USA, China, Russia and the New START  Treaty

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?
