In light of the immense suffering that the people of Japan are enduring, this must seem like a particularly callous question.  I am asking it, because God has raised up watchmen to prophesy judgment over America, and some of us are hearing that message quite often.   With such things at the forefront of our consciousness, it can be easy to assume that any Nation that is suffering disaster must be under God’s judgment.  However, that may not be the case.

I know very little of Japan, and do not have an answer to that question.  However, I do know that before God judges a nation, He raises up watchmen to give a warning and to call the people to repentance.  What do the Christians in Japan say?  Surely God does nothing without first telling His people.

I will share my feelings about the nation of Japan, though I certainly know very little.  Perhaps it will add another small facet of understanding, for those who ponder such things.

I know of Japan, that horrendous acts took place during their war with China.  Cruel, vicious crimes were committed.  The Japanese were a fierce and violent people.

Their lust for war plunged us into World War II, after their unprovoked (as far as I know) attack on Pearl Harbor.  The United States rose up in rage and nearly crushed Japan, when we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

After that, something changed in the heart of the Japanese people.  I don’t know that the Japanese people ever fell on their knees and repented before God.  I don’t know if they ever called out to God at all.  But I do know that they have  ‘proved their repentance by their deeds’ over more than six decades.

Since World War II, the people of Japan have become a people of civility, and industry.  They have lived quietly, worked with their hands, and created beauty.  They have kept their honor and their word.  They have found the law that God wrote upon their hearts, and they have lived it.

I don’t have the wisdom to say whether God is judging Japan–but I know that hardships come to all of us.  Sometimes they come to chasten us, and other times to refine us.

I urge you not to harden your hearts against the people of Japan . . . not to assume that they are being judged or merit the tremendous hardships that have befallen them.  And I urge you not to harden your heart against God . . . not to assume that He sent these disasters upon them.

Rather, hold the Japanese in your heart and pray for them to have strength.  Pray for God’s mercy upon them, in the weeks and months ahead.  Pray that this hardship further refines them, and brings forth even greater beauty from their souls.  And, most importantly, pray that they will turn their eyes to Jesus and find their strength and inspiration in Him.

 

It is still hard for me to wrap my mind around the idea that God is a God of judgment.  After all, my relationship with Him has been as a child with a patient, loving, merciful father.  He protects me, and provides for me.  He is my constant companion and friend.  Yet, the Scriptures admonish us not to present Him as being only a God of Love.  In His own words, He is a God of love and judgment.

To His friends, He demonstrates love, patience, goodness, peace, kindness and gentleness.  But to His enemies, He is a consuming fire.  Upon His enemies, He visits judgment.

None of us is born an enemy of God.  We choose to be His enemies, by setting our minds and hearts in opposition to Him, and in opposition to truth.  It is our own attitudes and actions that separate us from God.  Yet, even then, He holds out His arms to us in forgiveness and reconciliation.  But when we continue to reject Him, and live in opposition to Him, we invite judgment upon ourselves.

When people say things like the things I am about to say, many people close their hearts and make accusations about the speaker’s motives and character.  You can say what you want about me.  I have never been popular, so it really doesn’t matter.  But, in the hopes that you won’t close your heart, but will listen and understand the message I hope to convey, I will take a little time to qualify my comments.

Sometimes it is really easy for me to look at people and feel they are deserving of judgment.  Some people are so vile and corrupt . . . others are so evil, that it seems they really merit judgment–and soon!  I can feel this way about people I spend time around, or the culture that surrounds me.

However, I have no intimate understanding of people in other places or cultures.  I have no opinion as to whether their lifestyles merit judgment, because I have no idea how they live.  So, when I question whether God is judging a nation somewhere, it is not because I feel they should be judged.  I really have no opinion in the matter, because I am not acquainted with them.

It has really caught my attention, over the last couple of years, that Indonesia is suffering one catastrophe after another.  They are constantly being hit with earthquakes–the most recent being a 7.7 magnitude quake a couple of days ago.  And I have thought–could God’s judgment be upon Indonesia?  And I have wondered–don’t they have a large Islamic population?

If they do, and if they are suffering God’s judgment–could it be because of their practice of Islam?

Islam worships a false god–an idol.  Allah is a false god.  He is not the same being as the Jews and Christians worship (Jehovah, The Creator).  God’s first commandment for His people is that they have no other gods before Him.  Could it be that it is His first rule because it is the one that matters to Him the most?

Allah is not just a false god, he is a false god that claims he is the God of gods–the supreme God!!  This is a case of stealing the identity of the Most High God and destroying His reputation by the abominable things that the imposter says and does!  Islam is an abomination!

Could it be that the practice of this abomination, and the worship of this imposter (Allah), is enough to make God angry enough to pour out judgment–desolation?–on those nations that practice it?

Today, Indonesia was hit with a tsunami and a volcanic eruption–within hours of each other!  Tsunamis scour the ground and sweep away everything in their path.  Is this not desolation?  Volcanoes can scour the ground with an eruption of hot gases, or cover the ground with ash, lava, or mudslides, obliterating everything in the eruption’s path.  Is this not desolation?

Indonesia--volcanic eruption 10/10

Indonesia--volcanic eruption 10/10

And yes, as it turns out, Indonesia does have a large Islamic population–the largest in the world!  Over 170 million, according to adherents.com.

Right behind them, in second place, is Pakistan, with 136 million Muslims.  What has been happening in Pakistan lately?  Massive flooding, destruction of roads, buildings, farmlands and homes.  Millions whose homes were damaged or destroyed are struggling financially as they try to rebuild.  The national economy, must be virtually destroyed–before the floods it was built on billions of dollars of international loans.  Almost 6 million acres of farmland were damaged (farming is the basis of Pakistan’s economy).  Is this not desolation?

 

Pakistan--2010 flood victims

Pakistan--2010 flood victims

Pakistan--flooding 2010

Pakistan--flooding 2010

I am not certain that any of these events are God’s judgment–but I think they could be.

Let me list the top 10 countries in regards to Muslim population:

  1. Indonesia
  2. Pakistan
  3. Bangladesh
  4. India
  5. Turkey
  6. Iran
  7. Egypt
  8. Nigeria
  9. China

IF the events in Indonesia and Pakistan are God’s judgments on nations that practice Islam, then my own (human) prediction/opinion  is that Bangladesh and India might be next in line for major catastrophes.

Let me remind you again of God’s promise, in case you are living in one of these nations:

“If my people, which are called by my name (Christians and descendents of Jacob/Israel), shall

  • humble themselves,
  • and pray,
  • and seek my face,
  • and turn from their wicked ways;

then

  • will I hear from heaven, and
  • will forgive their sin, and
  • will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

It doesn’t seem like God would suspend judgment upon a country if only His people there repent, but there is precedent for this.  We know that when Abraham plead with God for mercy on the righteous people in Sodom, that God was willing to spare all the extremely wicked, vile inhabitants of the city if there were just ten righteous among them.

“Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”

The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it?  Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge  of all the earth do right?”

The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”

Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city because of five people?”

“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”

Once again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”

He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”

Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”

He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”

Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”

He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”

Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”

He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”  When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.”  Genesis 18:20-33

I also am reminded of Elijah’s showdown with the prophets of Baal.  The reason it comes to mind is that there seemed to be a question, among God’s people, as to who was really God–so Elijah put them to the test.  I think we face a similar situation today.

My opinion is that if God is visiting  judgment upon a country, and His people there would repent, and humble themselves, and pray, and seek His face, and turn from THEIR wicked ways–people would be watching.  It would be a showdown, of sorts.  And I believe, as He did before Elijah and the prohets of Baal, that God would show Himself to be God by (forgiving His people and) healing their land.

“Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

But the people said nothing.

Then Elijah said to them, “I am the only one of the Lord’s prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets. Get two bulls for us. Let them choose one for themselves, and let them cut it into pieces and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord. The god who answers by fire—he is God.”

Then all the people said, “What you say is good.”

Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire.” So they took the bull given them and prepared it.

Then they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “O Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.

At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.”  So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.

Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which was in ruins. Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.” With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs of seed. He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”

“Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

“Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.

At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, O Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.”   I Kings 18:21-40

More than anything, I think this is the fundamental issue between Judeo-Christian western civilization and Islam:

Our gods are not the same!  Allah is not Jehovah!

If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Allah is God, follow him!

Today I received an e-newsletter from Chuck Baldwin.  It fits in with what I wanted to blog about, so to start out, I will post his column, in its entirety (as he requests).  My comments will follow.

What’s Really Going On In Haiti?
By Chuck Baldwin
January 26, 2010

This column is archived at
http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2010/cbarchive_20100126.html

People of goodwill everywhere are rightly sympathetic to the plight of
hundreds of thousands of innocent Haitians in the aftermath of the terrible earthquake that rocked the island country. Private donations and volunteer efforts are pouring into Haiti from all over the globe–especially from the United States. This is a good thing, right? So, why am I troubled?

Simply put, I cannot remember such an all-out “relief effort” by our
nation’s military and government forces following a natural disaster
anywhere–ever! Not even New Orleans, Louisiana, and surrounding Gulf Coast communities here in the homeland received the kind of attention from Washington, D.C., that Haiti is receiving.

According to Agence France-Press (AFP), “The US military is ramping up its mission in quake-hit Haiti, with 20,000 US troops expected to operate on ground and offshore by Sunday [January 24], the US commander overseeing the region said.”

No doubt, this would include ships and personnel from the USS Carl Vinson carrier group. Cost to US taxpayers to send an entire carrier group–along with more than 20,000 (so far) military personnel–to Haiti already numbers in the multiplied millions of dollars. It is also almost certain that there will be no quick exit from the island nation. There never is. In other words, our military presence (dare I say occupation?) in Haiti will doubtless last for years. At least, that’s the way Latin American and European countries see it. And they are probably right.

Suffice it to say that the United States military is now completely in
charge in Haiti. At this point, it would be very enlightening for everyone to read Walter Williams’ column dated January 20, 2010, entitled “Haiti’s Avoidable Death Toll.” See Walter’s column at:

http://tinyurl.com/haiti-avoidable-death

In short, Williams notes that the high death toll in Haiti is directly
related to the inferior political/economic philosophies of the Haitian
government. There is no economic liberty, which has relegated it to being one of the world’s poorest nations, with no opportunity to build the kind of homes and businesses that can withstand natural disasters.

Williams is right when he says, “President Barack Obama called the quake ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.’ He would be closer to the truth if he had said that the Haitian political and economic climate that make Haitians helpless in the face of natural disasters are ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.'”

Williams also observes, “Corruption is rampant” in Haiti. Crime is,
likewise, ubiquitous in Haiti, with little real law enforcement. Private
property rights are nonexistent. Like many (if not most) third world
countries, people live in tyranny and bondage to insensitive, power-mad
strongmen who use up the country’s resources for their own selfish purposes. Tyranny always impoverishes people; freedom enriches them.

Williams rightly concludes, “Haiti’s disaster demands immediate Western
assistance but it’s only the Haitian people who can relieve themselves of
the deeper tragedy of self-inflicted poverty.” Amen.

All of that said, however, there are still several things bugging me about
the Haiti story.

For one thing, why was an earthquake of this magnitude not felt beyond
Port-au-Prince? (The only reports saying tremors were felt out of Haiti
belong to US-controlled sources.)  All of the testimonies that I have read from people living in the adjoining country of the Dominican Republic (which shares the same island with Haiti) that were quoted by French, British, or Spanish outlets universally say they felt nothing. If the foreign press is reporting the story accurately, the devastation was almost exclusively contained in and around Port-au-Prince. That is very strange to me. Even most of the roads reportedly remained open after the quake.

Another oddity is the fact that this earthquake did not produce a tsunami. It is being called “miraculous” that an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale did not produce a colossal tsunami, which would have affected everyone in the region.

Furthermore, does the French government know something that we don’t–but should? According to a report of the Global Analysis International Intelligence (GAII), “Not coincidentally, Agence France-Press (AFP), which of course is closely affiliated with French intelligence, filed a report on 14th January which contained the following concluding sentence:

“‘On Wednesday, Obama ordered a “swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives” in Haiti following the murderous quake, as a massive US aid mission swung into action, using troops, naval forces, aircraft and rescue teams.’

“FACT: An ‘act of God,’ or natural calamity, is NOT a ‘murderous quake.’ “The use of the word MURDEROUS here implies that someone is doing the
MURDERING.”

GAII further speculates that the earthquake may have been the work of US Black Ops, which “flattened the French embassy and many of its officials, imploded the United Nations’ own establishments in the Haitian capital, and no doubt obliterated evidence of US Government and rogue official drug-running complicity . . . channeled through the Haitian capital for many years.” See the intelligence report at:

http://tinyurl.com/gaii-haiti

Intelligence reports are also circulating about the possible disruption of
liens and seizures of trillions of dollars by the international community
relative to past crimes committed by former Presidents George Bush I and II, and Bill Clinton, which were being channeled through Haiti’s Central Bank.

If any of this is even remotely true, it is certainly more than convenient
that the Haitian capital was destroyed.

This particular part of the story is a real sore spot with me. And I know if I broach this topic, many readers (especially my Christian brethren who live under the delusion that the Bush family can do no wrong) will refuse to believe anything I report and will even take their anger and umbrage out on me. So be it.

I am personally convinced that certain members of the Bush and Clinton
families have been involved in the international smuggling of illicit drugs
for decades. I have spoken in confidence with those who were in positions to know, and they have emphatically told me that both then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and then-President George H.W. Bush were complicit in CIA-assisted drug running out of Mena, Arkansas. (You don’t think I would say this if I did not have absolute confidence in the integrity and credibility of these sources, do you? Plus, why would they tell me this at potential great harm to themselves, if it were not true? And, no, I cannot divulge their names, for obvious reasons.) And there is absolutely no reason to believe that similar operations are not ongoing. In my opinion, it would be utterly naïve to think otherwise.

After all, it has been often reported that the CIA used Army Special Forces troops to facilitate the smuggling of drugs out of Indochina during the Vietnam War, has it not? Yes, it has. That rogue elements within the US government would use war–or even earthquakes–as cover and facilitation for illegal drug smuggling or money laundering would not surprise me one bit.

I realize it is extremely difficult for many Americans to contemplate that
members of their own federal government could be evil enough to be involved in anything such as is implied above. According to the thinking of many Americans, evil people only live in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, or North Korea. And, of course, that is exactly what government propagandists want us to believe.

The truth is, no country or people has a monopoly on sin. As the prophet
Jeremiah was inspired to say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) The Apostle Paul agreed. He told the Philippians, “We . . . have no confidence in the flesh.” (Philippians 3:3)

Thomas Jefferson said virtually the same thing when he said, “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

This is why Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders insisted that we
should be diligent to hold our civil magistrates accountable to the limits
and protections of the US Constitution. They well understood the sentiments so wisely expressed by Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Christians, of all people, should understand this.

So, why are so many of us so quick to believe everything our government and their toadies in the national media are telling us? Are we so naïve as to believe that unregenerate politicians in Washington, D.C., are incapable of the same evil acts of barbarity and savagery that might be found in other parts of the world? Are sinners less sinful because they happened to receive their fallen nature from American bloodlines?

Am I saying that Black Ops personnel manufactured the earthquake in
Haiti–and killed tens of thousands of people in the process–for the
purpose of hiding or facilitating illegal activity? No, I am not. How in the
world would I know it, even if it were true?

What I am saying is that, once again, for me, there are many things that do not add up regarding what is going on in Haiti. The way the earthquake behaved; the lack of related seismic and tsunamic activity usually associated with earthquakes of this magnitude; the unprecedented involvement of US military forces being used for “relief efforts” even as commanders are desperate to fill combat theaters in Iraq and Afghanistan; the occupation of another independent nation, which occurred at lightning speed; the vast sums of US taxpayer dollars being expended; the devastation done to key Haitian governmental and banking institutions–which were known to be conduits for
international financial disbursements–with virtually no devastation
experienced anywhere else; and intelligence reports of surreptitious
activity circulating all over Europe and Latin America all add up to one big question, What’s really going on in Haiti?

My opinions on Chuck Baldwin’s column:

  • I don’t think that the use of the word ‘murderous’ to describe the earthquake, in and of itself, implies anything.  It could simply be a way of attributing blame for the deaths to God, ‘Mother Nature’, or the earthquake itself.
  • I was not aware  that the damage was confined to such a small area, and that the quake was not felt throughout the island.  To me, that seems very suspicious indeed.
  • Just yesterday I had read elsewhere, that the day before the quake, the Department of Defense had held simulations pertaining to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti, in order to rehearse relief operations.

http://libertynewsradio.com/wire/news/2010/01/00413_A_Haiti_Disaster_Relief_Scenario_Was_Envisaged_by_the_US_Military_One_Day_Before_the_Earthquake_025124.php

  • Also, yesterday, I heard, for the first time, the allegation that the CIA was involved in drug dealing.

http://libertynewsradio.com/wire/news/2010/01/00414_Ron_Paul_After_CIA_coup_agency_runs_military_025532.php

  • ‘Rogue Elements’?  I’ll go a step further and say that our government authorizes and funds these ‘rogue elements’, but makes every effort to cover their connection to them.  How many years have we been  hearing about US involvement in assassinations, regime change, etc.?  Come on–if these were just ‘rogue elements’, don’t you think there would be an investigation, arrests, and a front page story?
  • I knew that the Bushes were involved in many despicable things, including eugenics, Holocaust concentration camps, Saudi Arabia, etc.  Information on some of that can be found in the book “Confessions Of An Economic Hitman”.  (This book was a real ‘eye-opener’ for me!)  Here is a link to a video interview with the author:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=808526880666247652#

As far as Clinton, I haven’t learned much about him but, years ago, I formed the opinion that it was his goal to disarm the US and bring us under the authority of the United Nations–and then run for president of the UN! (His efforts were tame compared to what Obama has done!)

  • Steven Collins had recently posted a blog about Obama’s Executive Order regarding Interpol (International Police, I believe).  He links to an article that asserts that Interpol is doing an in-depth audit of the Federal Reserve Bank, and investigating it and other criminal organizations.

http://stevenmcollins.com/WordPress/?p=1479

Remember also, that nearly a year ago, there were reports of a Spanish judge wanting Bush, et al. investigated in regards to breaking international law by torturing prisoners at Guantánamo Bay.  And, it was discovered, late last summer, that Goldman Sachs had been using market manipulating software.  Although virtually no American media covered the story, there was an international outcry over the discovery.  The Senate was planning to investigate, but the story died.  I don’t know if it was ever resolved.  If it wasn’t  (and it doesn’t look like it was) there could be call for an investigation by an organization independent of the (apparently) widespread corruption throughout the US government and regulatory agencies.  In other words, these things would tend to corroborate the idea that there may be an international investigation underway, into the Bush family and other influential people.  One other note–although Obama is giving the impression of not being involved in such an investigation, I suspect he would be at the front of the pack of the accusers.

  • I heard also, that Hugo Chavez (I think it was him), is alleging that we are using the Haiti earthquake as an excuse for military occupation of Haiti and eventually the invasion of Venezuela.  (It has just been reported that Venezuelan oil deposits may be more than double the amount of oil in Saudi Arabia.)

http://www.topnews.in/venezuela-holds-vast-crude-reservoirs-usgc-2252378

While he is certainly villified in the conservative media, it doesn’t necessarily follow that nothing Chavez says is true.  I am not one of his supporters, and know nothing about him, but who knows?  One day we may find out that Chavez told more truth than either our politicians or our news media!

  • Also, with the amount of enmity that Venezuela and Cuba have towards the US, and in view of their increase in militarization, it would make sense, strategically, for the US to move into the region.  I am not saying I agree!  I am just saying decision makers could feel justified in occupying Haiti, for that reason.  Frankly, I don’t know where the money is coming from to continue expanding our ‘presence’–especially when things are falling apart at home!

America is not just a nation–it is an empire.  We are feared and hated throughout the world–for that reason.  I go into the subject a little more in my post:  American Empire

Here is a map that speaks volumes:

US military bases worldwide in 2007

US military bases worldwide in 2007

Another important thing I want to point out, is that the American empire extends to the south and to the east.  That correlates with a prophecy in Daniel, relating to a 4th kingdom/world empire that will rule in the latter days.  This is the same empire spoken of as The Beast (the ‘first beast’) in the book of Revelation.

My gut feeling is that the US may either be the last world empire, or may be transforming into it.  I still have a lot more study to do before I could put forth a reasonable argument for it though.  I know it would be denied by almost all of our current ‘Bible experts’–the same ones that will tell you that The Church is going to be ‘raptured’ before the Tribulation begins.  I know, without a doubt, that isn’t true.

I still need to do a post on that subject, but I’ll spare you the suspense–based on my current understanding, I believe that the only people that might possibly be removed from the earth before death, prior to Christ’s return, are ‘The 144,000’ and maybe ‘The Two Witnesses’.  The rest of us will rise to meet Him in the air when He returns.

Back to the column . . . if I understand correctly, people suspect that the US may have bombed certain buildings in Haiti, thus producing an earthquake.  What is it investigators look for–motive, means & opportunity? (I think those are the three.)

  • Motive: In his column, Chuck lays out a very plausible motive for doing such a thing–if it is true.  (I’m just an ‘average joe’ who has no inside information, so I can’t say if it is or not.)
  • Means: If it was bombs, we certainly have the means to do that.  There is also another possible means by which we could have caused an earthquake.  That will be the subject of the continuation of this post.  (Link below)
  • Opportunity: I don’t think we can rule that out.  We already know that over 100 Americans died in the quake.  (I am not implying that any of them were the people responsible–if anyone was responsible).

So, to wrap up this post . . . it certainly looks like certain powerful people, with ties to our government, may have a motive for creating an earthquake in Haiti (and yes, it is possible to do that), in order to cover past acts of corruption.  If this is true–may God bring the whole thing out into the open, and may these people get the earthly judgment they deserve!

Be sure to check out part 2 of this post, detailing a likely weapon of massive mass destruction.  Many believe these weapons (several in the world) are capable of producing earthquakes, as well as some of the other devastating events prophesied for the latter days–ones you may have assumed would be natural events!
