Freaky Friday: Fantasy Or Fact?

Posted by JRed

I've concluded that the more surreal and "out there" our reality becomes, the harder it is to talk about such things (what I see as being prophetically significant) seriously especially in a Christian forum like this. Gosh, any quick look at the Comments portion of each article will prove this sometimes!

Of course, I'm very grateful because a majority of you wouldn't be here regularly if you didn't seem to think that we were on to something, and that God - - as prophesied - - is no longer "shutting up the words" or "sealing the book" since this is now "the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4). So, that being said, these "F4 (FFFF)" columns will be more for those people who just happen to stumble upon this site.

The theories and ideas expressed in this category will most likely reflect the very real thoughts and questions I have about a particular subject (those that immediately stir my soul and set off bells and whistles within), but to avoid the "you're-just-another-crazy-crackpot-tin-foil-hat-wearing-Christian-doomsday-wacko" label, I figured that by writing about such things under the banner of "Freaky Friday: Fantasy Or Fact?" it would give me greater leeway in exploring such ideas, and prevent people from simply writing me off from the start.

In addition, I want to officially invite you to forward me your ideas, observations, and theories as well since this is where they would be explored (some of you have already done that - - thank you).


F4: NOSTRADAMUS - WHY DOES GOD ALLOW FALSE PROPHETS?


Can God use false prophets to get our attention and speak to us? If many of those who are unsaved at the moment are more interested in what a false prophet has to say instead of what the prophets and Jesus said in the Holy Bible then would the Lord use those false prophets to some small extent to get the attention of the unsaved and convince them that perhaps something even bigger is going on in the world?

If the answer is "yes" I believe we may have discovered a new approach to reading and interpreting non-canonical prophecies like those we have been given from Nostradamus. With that in mind, a recent discovery a new friend and Brother in Christ just brought to my attention could have some serious prophetic implications for us.

Is Nostradamus just another false prophet? Many of us are familiar with the name Nostradamus especially during these perilous times in which we live.

He was a reputed seer from the 16th century who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous world-wide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties, the first edition of which appeared in 1555.

Since the publication of that book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted an enthusiastic following who, along with the popular press, credit him with predicting many major world events.


In contrast, most academic sources maintain that the associations made between world events and Nostradamus' quatrains (the enigmatic verses that his prophecies were written in) are largely the result of misinterpretations or mistranslations (sometimes deliberate) or else are so tenuous as to render them useless as evidence of any genuine predictive power.

Moreover, there is no evidence that anyone has ever interpreted any of Nostradamus' quatrains specifically enough to allow a clear identification of any event in advance.

This is the critical difference between Nostradamus’ prophecies and the prophecies contained in the Holy Bible. Written hundreds (and in some cases thousands!) of years ago, the prophecies contained in Scripture are very detailed and yet very specific so that there can be only one interpretation shared by all who read them. They are not left to personal interpretation as are the prophecies of Nostradamus. Sure, you might have to work to truly understand what the verses mean all the way down to their root level, but once you get there you have a pretty clear idea of what the divinely inspired writer meant.

In addition, the Bible clearly says that a prophet must be 100% correct 100% of the time. How do we test a so-called prophet? Deuteronomy 13 warns that a prophet must teach correctly about God. Chapter 18 tells us the prophet's prophecies must come to pass.

Paul tells us in Galatians 1:8-9 that even angels can appear with a wrong message. We are to compare the message with the teachings of the apostles. In Acts 17:10-12, when Paul went to Berea to proclaim Jesus as the Messiah to the Jews, we read "these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of them believed..."

Note, Paul did not tell them to go home and pray about it. They were praised for searching the scriptures, in other words, testing the message to see if it agreed with the prophecies of the Old Testament prophets and the Messiah.

That being said, while Nostradamus enthusiasts have credited him with predicting numerous events in world history, from the Great Fire of London, by way of the rise of Napoleon I of France and Adolf Hitler, to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, we cannot call him a true prophet because it is only ever in hindsight.

It is not only skeptics who suggest that his reputation as a prophet is largely manufactured by modern-day supporters who fit his words to events that have either already occurred or are so imminent as to be inevitable, a process sometimes known as "retroactive clairvoyance."

There is no evidence in the academic literature to suggest that any Nostradamus quatrain has ever been interpreted as predicting a specific event before it occurred, other than in vague, general terms that could equally apply to any number of other events.

Again, this is the critical difference between Nostradamus’ prophecies and the prophecies contained in the Holy Bible. He simply cannot be a genuine prophet according to what we know of them and their prophecies from what the Bible has to say on the subject.

Nevertheless, interest in the work of this prominent figure of the French Renaissance is still considerable, especially in the media and in popular culture, and the prophecies have in some cases been assimilated to the results of applying the alleged Bible Code, as well as to other purported prophetic works.


NOTICING NOSTRADAMUS IN A DIFFERENT WAY


It is in that spirit that I would like us to consider a new approach to Nostradamus, his prophecies as contained within his quatrains, and their possible connection to God’s plan for humanity and for what is yet to come.

We know from Daniel 2:21 that, “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.”

Thus, God is in absolute and complete control - - of everything!

Surely, there is an element of free will and a natural system and order to things at work in this world, but when it comes to the significant events of human history (i.e. those events that are prophesied to occur in the end times) it is quite easy to assume that those are the things that He would maintain His firm grip upon.

He loves us dearly and we are confident of this from John 3:16 that says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Not wanting to see anyone perish and miss out on the glorious opportunity and free gift of salvation and eternal life available to them, I have often wondered about all the seemingly insignificant things that God might use in this world to get our attention and speak to us in this pursuit.

The question I have been struggling with lately is that even though a man like Nostradamus was a false prophet perhaps there is a small element of truth to each of his predictions. Could God use a false prophet to get our attention and send us a message?

We might answer that question with a series of other questions, whose answers are all the same: Why does God allow false teachers and teachings? Why are there heresies and cults? Why are there charlatans and frauds in the Church?

The biblical reply to those questions is that God allows false ministry for several reasons.

First, He allows it to test the hearts of His people as we have already established in Deuteronomy 13. Such divine tests demonstrate whether God's people will follow Him or chase after some miracle worker who draws them away from His commandments and will.

Second, God allows the false to appear because the contrast between the true and the false provides an opportunity to discern the differences clearly, and to highlight what is true: "There must needs be heresies among you, that those which are approved might be made manifest" (1 Corinthians 11:19).

Third, God allows the false to arise as a source of delusion and deception for those who are dishonest: "Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done" (Romans1:28).

Fourth, God uses the false to bring judgment on the disobedient. Jeremiah tells us that in his day false prophets had multiplied among God's people, causing them to err and leading them into immorality. However, they became a tool in God's hand for judging the wickedness of His people, because they falsely predicted peace when in fact God was planning to overthrow the nation (Jeremiah 23:9-40).

Finally, God allows the false to appear among His people so that He can separate those who are committed to His purposes from those who are merely curious about what is taking place. You can be sure that when the religious leaders of Jesus' day rose against Him, speaking falsely and causing controversy, many who had followed Him up to that point simply to see the miracles consequently fell away instead of pressing in to know for certain what was true.


In a similar way, I believe that the controversy now swirling around prophetic ministry will sharply increase in the days to come, because God never makes it easy to come into present truth. As with Gideon's army, the group of 22,000 who are faint-hearted and easily discouraged over imbalance, extremes and error will have ample opportunity to "go home" and give up on the whole movement because of the problems of a few.

All are excellent points to consider. Plus, my own personal experience with this very subject tells me all I need to know. After 9/11, one of Nostradamus’ quatrains began making the rounds as we all searched for answers and meaning to such a catastrophic event. I was unsaved at the time and found small comfort thinking that perhaps “this was supposed to happen because Nostradamus predicted it!”

Yet, a strange and marvellous thing sprung forth from that thought! God used this event and Nostradamus together to get my attention, to get me asking more questions about the frailty of life, to get me looking for safety and a way out, and to get me seeking the truth about life in this world.

Soon after, I found myself absorbing anything and everything I could find about biblical prophecy since I quickly realized it was more accurate, more decipherable, and more amazing than anything I had ever read from Nostradamus! I was saved and born again a short time later!

Obviously, God used this particular false prophet to save my soul.


ON THIN ICE?


I want to be clear that there is a part of me that hesitates to publish let alone write this piece. I admit that I am nothing more than a spiritual baby when it comes to my relationship with Jesus Christ and I am afraid that writing about something like this, which is pure speculation anyway, could hurt my witness and do much more harm than good.

Besides, everything we could ever want and need to know about God’s plan for humanity as it pertains to the last days is contained in His love letter to humanity - - His Holy Bible.

Plus, the last thing I want to do is pique someone’s interest just enough that they begin to spend more time searching Nostradamus’ quatrains as opposed to burying their nose in the Book of Revelation.

Even so, a new friend and Brother in Christ recently brought to my attention a few months back something that immediately caught my eye simply because - - if true - - it might mean that we are that much closer to being caught up in a twinkling of an eye! It could very well be another sign of the times.

In the early 1990's, after the first Gulf War ended, Nostradamus followers wildly speculated that Saddam Hussein was the third Antichrist. The common consensus is that the first Antichrist, named “Napaulon Roy” was Napoleon, the second named “Hister” was Adolf Hitler, and the third was named “Mabus.” We have yet to figure out who this last Antichrist will be.

Mabus then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will run.

Century II, Quatrain 62

After the first war, Saddam was left standing in Baghdad and people lost interest. The prophecy was not fulfilled because Mabus was still alive. When war loomed over the Middle East a few years back, Saddam became this country’s number one target and people began to revisit this prophecy and they believed that he had the chance to fulfill it. As we know, Saddam’s fate was sealed and this quatrain faded into obscurity yet again.

Nostradamus’ third Antichrist has yet to be positively identified. In contrast with his certainty about Napoleon and Hitler, Nostradamus is less clear about who this third tyrant is.

Perhaps this is an example of his prophetic myopia that enabled him to be clearest about events of local or European history. When contemplating future events in more distant lands, the so-called prophet’s vision tends to be cloudier. What does come through clearly is the fact that this third and final Antichrist is not a prominent European leader as we commonly believe he will be. He may even be a minor player in a future conflict. That seems to fit with the Biblically prophetic description that he will indeed rise to power from virtual obscurity.

The man we know as Mabus may be some obscure individual who, if he is not identified and restrained in time, will trigger World War III and the extinction of civilization as we have known it as he ushers in Armageddon. Remember this point because it could be the key to understanding what we're about to look at here in a moment.

What if this prediction was not referring to Saddam at all? What if the small element of truth that God will allow to be used for His purposes from this false prophet is the name “Mabus” and that this name is not related not to a well-known leader from the Middle East or Europe, but an obscure politician/civilian from the United States?

It sounds absurd, I know! Would it sound any less absurd if I told you that this individual we have identified shares the EXACT same name as the one given by Nostradamus and that he was a key advisor to none other than President Barack Obama during his election campaign?


Ray Mabus is an American business and political leader. Based in Mississippi, he works on international business matters, is involved in political campaigns, and serves on various corporate and charitable boards. Previously, he served as Governor of the U.S. state of Mississippi as a Democrat and as Ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

Mabus was appointed by President Bill Clinton to be the United States Ambassador to Saudi Arabia and served from 1994 to 1996. During his tenure, a 1994 border crisis involving Yemen was diffused, a 1994 crisis with Iraq was deterred, a 1995 terrorist attack was weathered, child custody disputes were addressed, and contracts worth more than $16 billion were signed between Saudi Arabian and American companies such as Boeing, AT&T and others. Also, Saudi Arabia officially abandoned the boycott of United States businesses that trade with Israel, and more than $8 million of proposed expenditures for the American mission were cut.

He is quite the peacemaker.

Mabus serves on various corporate and charitable boards, and is involved in international business. In addition, he frequently assists political campaigns, in Mississippi and nationally. In May 2007, he endorsed then U.S. Senator Barack Obama for President, and soon after served as a senior adviser to the campaign (Obama’s right-hand man especially when it comes to foreign affairs in the Middle East).

He has been awarded the U.S. Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Award, the U.S. Army’s Distinguished Civilian Service Award, the Martin Luther King Social Responsibility Award from the King Center in Atlanta, the National Wildlife Federation Conservation Achievement Award, the King Abdul Aziz Award from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the Mississippi Association of Educators’ Friend of Education Award.

He is active in many community activities, primarily focusing on education. Following Hurricane Katrina, he founded the Help and Hope Foundation, which works to meet the needs of children affected by the storm.

He is a member of the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and is the Distinguished Lecturer on the Middle East at the University of Mississippi.

As a photographer, his photographs have raised tens of thousands of dollars for various Mississippi charities. He has also appeared on many television programs as an expert on the Middle East, including “60 Minutes” and “Nightline.”

That is quite an impressive resume for an obscure politician from Mississippi! Now the eerie stuff.

He was born in 1948. That is the same year that the state of Israel was born. We all know that to determine where we are on the prophetic timeline we need to simply look to see what is going on with that small nation in the Middle East because Israel is God’s timepiece. If Ray Mabus is the Antichrist as I'm obviously implying (or another major end times player) this would be phenomenal, but not an entirely surprising connection.

If Ray Mabus is the Antichrist then where is the 666? Here is what I found. He is the 60th Governor of Mississippi, and he just turned 60 years of age this past October. But where is the other 6? Well, I also learned that prior to the Governorship, Mabus gained political experience by being the State Auditor. Serving as the head of that office, Ray Mabus aided the FBI in conducting a sting operation which resulted in millions of state money being recovered from County Supervisors who had abused the funds. From 2006-2007, he was Chairman and CEO of Foamex International and helped lead it out of bankruptcy. Less than 9 months after his appointment, Foamex emerged from Chapter 11, paid every qualified creditor 100 cents on the dollar, plus interest, and preserved equity! Hmmm, seems like a guy with all the answers, and this particular achievement would be music to the ears of those suffering from an ailing economy, no? It gets weirder though! In August 2007, Mabus joined the board of EnerSys, the world's largest manufacturer, marketer, and distributor of industrial batteries doing business in 100 countries worldwide, and generating $6 billion in revenue according to the New York Stock Exchange! So, there's the other 6. All a stretch, I know, but this is part of our "Freaky Friday" series so anything goes!

Again, I do not pretend to have any answers and am simply presenting what I see as some potentially important information and readily admit that this could be nothing but pure nonsense. However, Mr. Mabus was in the news just the other day, which is why he got my attention again. Guess who's set to be appointed as Secretary of the Navy? Per this article, the former Mississippi Governor and Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Ray Mabus is the top leading candidate for Secretary of the Navy. His nomination is expected somewhere between now and March 13th. The Secretary of the Navy is responsible for all the affairs of the service, including recruiting, organizing, supplying, equipping, training and mobilizing the force.

Now get this! His company - - EnerSys - - is a manufacturer of stored energy solutions in the fields of motive power, reserve power, aerospace, and defense. It operates in over 100 countries worldwide, with over 25% market share worldwide with U.S. $2 billion in revenue. In 2008, EnerSys significantly broadened its product support for the fast growing renewable energy market sector with the launch of its EcoSafe battery product line. EcoSafe batteries, which use lead, nickel and lithium technologies, have been developed specifically for renewable energy storage applications, including solar power, wind power and other electricity-generation alternatives. The military applications are such that it provides an alternative backup energy source.



Here's a thought...What if this country where attacked by an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP)? His company's technology would allow the military to function as normal despite the fact that everything else would be completey fried and useless. Taking things a step further, we know that the Rapture will be like lightning from the East to the West. Could this cause an EMP across the planet at the same time? If so, what if his organization has contracts with the militaries of those 100 different countries they do business with? Then it's at least plausible that he would have full control over the world's military apparatus. Now, dovetail this knowledge with his potential appointment as Secretary of the Navy. Interesting to say the least!

Certainly, it's interesting to me that this one man has already built a reputation as a "peacemaker," and now he is in line to be in a position that could quite conceivably afford him the opportunity to gain a reputation as a "war hero" (or "military strategist" is probably more appropriate). And we all know the prophetic implications of that reality in the frame of this context and given his professional background and accomplishments.

Once again, this is all pure speculation as I have stated before, and despite the intriguing facts that make you raise your eyebrows this could be nothing more than a red herring or rabbit trail to distract us from the real task at hand.

While we are supposed to be watching and preparing for Jesus’ return there is no question that these questions still remain important for helping others to realize that we are fast approaching the time of the end as circumstances are being orchestrated behind the scenes by our Good Shepherd to fulfill His story.


CONCLUSIONS: CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?


So, we have Nostradamus predicting that the third historical (and final) Antichrist figure will be named "Mabus," and we have a real individual whose very name is the same, who also has some interesting info from his bio and career that seems to mesh with what we're told about the Antichrist in the Holy Bible.

Is Ray Mabus the prophesied Antchrist? Was Nostradamus on to something? Is God using this false prophet to some extent to get the attention of those who are unsaved? I believe that we may find some truth in the Nostradamus predictions, but how much remains to be seen as these whispers from the past can only reveal a small part about the path to our future destiny.

Given the vital importance of the decision we need to make and cannot put off until tomorrow due to the eternal significance, I think it only makes sense that the Lord would do whatever it takes and that He would use any tools at His disposal in this fallen and sinful world to get our attention and scare some sense into us because He loves us that much!

Want proof?

Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." In this verse and in John 3:16, we find no conditions placed on God's love for us. God doesn't say, "as soon as you clean up your act, I'll love you" nor does He say, "I'll sacrifice my Son if you promise to love Me."

In fact, in Romans 5:8, we find just the opposite. God wants us to know that His love is unconditional, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us while we were still unlovable sinners. We did not have to get clean, and we did not have to make any promises to God before we could experience His love. His love for us has always existed, and because of that, He did all the giving and sacrificing long before we were even aware that we needed His love.

God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God's love is unconditional, and it is not based on feelings or emotions. He does not love us because we are lovable or because we make Him feel good. He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for us) to restore that relationship.

We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment according to His universal laws. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment (to serve as a substitute for us and our sins because this universal law demanded some kind of a sacrifice as penalty and payment for violating and breaking them) for those who believe in Him.

Jesus, the Creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," recognize your need for a Savior due to your sins (whatever they may be) and repent of them now and ask Him to forgive you and to come into your heart and life as your Lord and Savior. You will be saved from judgment and will now spend eternity with God in heaven as well as your fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

The Nostradamus connection to biblical prophecy may be real or it may be imagined. From my own personal experience related to this subject that ultimately led me to my salvation in Jesus Christ I believe it is the former.

With that in mind, Luke 21:28 tells us plainly, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

A Message From God?

Posted by JRed

This is the type of news that has to make you stop and wonder: Is God trying to get our attention and tell us something?

I think you know what my answer is to that question, but let's see how this story affects you. The headline read: "Baby Born With 12 Fingers, 12 Toes"



Interesting headline and news story since we've spent a good portion of the past few weeks examining Biblical evidence of the existence of Nephilim/Giants in the Old Testament days as well as the prophesied return of such creatures.

What is it we read in the second Book of Samuel again?

2 Samuel 21:20 - - "And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant."

Now, before people start sending me emails on this, I'm not suggesting that this beautiful little baby is one of these Nephilim. However, what I am suggesting is perhaps God is reminding us that these creatures did exist, and maybe He's confirming what we've looked at together here in recent weeks through this national news story.

Logic dictates that if this sort of thing can happen now then why couldn't it have happened back then? Besides, the Bible tells us that this is exactly what happened. We can choose to believe the entire Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God or, we can pick and choose the parts we like.

If we choose the latter we better be prepared to answer to God for our sin of creating an idol before Him (creating an image and concept of Him that is only partially accurate).

As RNN aptly observed, these can only be echoes of the Gath giant in this particular bloodline. In other words, God's way of confirming to the world that His Word is accurate, and that it can be trusted.

The clock is ticking. Get right with the Lord today!

When Science Confirms Truth

Posted by JRed

I always love it when I learn about cases when science confirms truth. Better yet, whenever science confirms Biblical truth that's when my smile widens.

That's why the results of
this latest children's study was especially gratifying. Ironically, it came from an organization in the UK, which has sadly become very secular in recent years.

The report by the Children’s Society, which runs social work projects with runaways and other deprived children, comes against a background of growing political debate over the direction of the family. Bob Reitemeier, Chief Executive of the Children's Society, said the report was a "wake-up call" for the whole of society. He said, "Essentially the report brings a taboo into the open which is that we have to confront our selfish and individualistic culture."

It was just another in a long line of scientific studies over recent years that unanimously prove the benefits of a two parent family to children:


The study also reconfirmed that children do best when brought up by two parents with a "longterm commitment" to each other.

In the British political landscape, the findings throw a fresh question mark over the Labour Party's family and benefit policies, which support and reward single parents at the expense of couples, and which have sidelined marriage as a lifestyle choice with no value for children. Tory Party leader David Cameron has pledged to end this "couple penalty" in the benefit system.

Score a point for moral values and the traditional family.

Is Your Pastor On The FEMA Payroll?

Posted by JRed

Earlier today, I published a column that revisited the subject of Martial Law being implemented here in the United States, and one that looked at how that might play into the whole prophetic end times scenario.

I can't imagine that anyone who read that (those who also took time to research the links and references to independently verify my claims for themselves) is still skeptical of what's going on in this country right under our noses.

However, I also know human nature is such that people would prefer to continue to believe a lie simply because the truth is so much more uncomfortable and disturbing. Well, I'm sorry to disappoint, but this online ministry was established so that we could seek out the truth (and cling to the ultimate Truth) together.

I have a quick question for you: Is your Pastor on the FEMA payroll? Do you think that's an absurd question? Guess what? It's not!

Are you aware of the fact that
on Monday a large church organization had refused to divulge how many of its pastors are on the FEMA payroll, after a member expressed concerns about religious leaders being used to condition their congregation to accept the declaration of Martial Law? The member expressed concerns about Martial Law training, and was told that the information was “privileged."

If not, I'm not surprised because our mainstream media would rather debate which Super Bowl commercial was the funniest than discuss serious issues that affect all Americans. Thankfully, there was one local TV station that did their job properly back in 2007:



Still think this is nothing to be worried about? Let's revisit this angle together for a moment.

In a May 2006 story,
Prison Planet first broke the shocking news that FEMA was training pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of Martial Law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

Despite debunkers and urban myth websites claiming the story was a hoax, it was confirmed in triplicate by some mainstream news outlets over a year later as the above broadcast indicates.

"Clergy Response Teams" (as they're being called) are being trained by the federal government to “quell dissent” and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of Martial Law. Pastors will cite Romans 13 to encourage the public's submission to a police state.

With new legislation in Congress pending that will mandate the
set-up of a network of FEMA camp facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency, along with the announcement that tens of thousands of active military personnel are to be placed inside the United States under Northcom, partly for purposes of dealing with “civil unrest” and “crowd control,” fears about a state of Martial Law being prepared are no longer the fantasies of paranoid conspiracy theorists, but an all too real possibility as we move towards the end of the first decade of the 21st century.

Keep looking up because our time here is most assuredly short!

To my family and friends who visit this site secretly (preferring to do that instead of talking with me openly about prophecy and such things as this), to complete strangers who have been here publicly engaged for months, or those who are checking out this site for the first time today, I want to be clear that we all seriously need to open our eyes and recognize what's really going on in our nation and world because it is going to have eternal significance.

The types of things that are going on without the glaring, critical eye of the mainstream media is unbelievable. It's absolutely disgusting to me how we've all been kept in the dark for so long. Worse, try to show people cold, hard evidence that they can independently verify for themselves and they either think it's all a hoax or they simply don't care. There are more important things to worry about like doing the dishes, watching "The Bachelor," and paying one's mortgage (nothing against "The Bachelor" since it's definitely a guilty pleasure that both me and my wife share!).

All kidding aside, people need to realize that we will all wake up one day to complete chaos, unimaginable fear, and utter destruction. The last thing I want is to remain silent and sit quietly on the sidelines when I feel a burden to shout this news to any and all who will listen.

I'm at the point now where I believe with all my heart that I have a duty to share any type of news with you - - no matter how it makes me look - - if I strongly believe that it's relevant prophetically. If people think I'm crazy, so what! I've been called worse before in my life. I need people to just take some time to digest what's being reported here today (what's already been cataloged here since August 2008), and to take a good hard look at things (and themselves) and finally make some difficult decisions.

Bottom line, if you haven't accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now is the time to do so. Even if this doesn't materialize (look, I sincerely hope I'm wrong! there's nothing I'd want to be more wrong about than this!) you could still die tomorrow, and any unresolved issues like where you will spend eternity when you die will be moot at that point. Do you desire a personal relationship with the One who created you and loves you no matter what? If so, tell Him in your own words or use this simple prayer:


Father God, I know I need You because I am a sinner, but also know that I can never get to You on my own. There's nothing I can do on my own to make up for my sins; nothing I could do on my own to earn favor and forgiveness from you or to secure my place in Heaven when I die. The only thing I can do is to make a conscious decision that Jesus Christ came to this world for me. He took my sins upon Himself, was crucified in my place, died for me, and was resurrected so that I may live forever. I accept Him and His sacrifice, and desperately want to receive Your Son Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. When He conquered death for my sake He gave me access to You. Thank You for your grace and your mercy. Thank You for forgiving me and for sending the Holy Spirit to transform my life from this moment forward. I pray that you transform my life from this day forward and give me a heart and a mind that desires to not only get to know you, but to be with you as much as possible. Teach me how to live, and teach me how to share this message with others before it's too late for them. Amen.



A few weeks back I wrote a piece
"Martial Law: Plausible Scenario Or Paranoid Delusion?" in which I referenced an interview that Steve Quayle gave to Alex Jones where he, in no uncertain terms, was absolutely convinced (from what his various sources were telling him) that Martial Law would become a reality for every U.S. citizen within 90 days or less.

Despite my respect for Mr. Quayle as a Brother in Christ, I took that announcement with a grain of salt even though I was very familiar with
a quick summary of all the instances - - 7 in total (5 within the last 100 years; 1 only 3 years ago!) - - of Martial Law being enforced within the borders of the continental United States.

However, recent developments have me wondering if we're a lot closer to this frightening reality than ever before. In the past, talk of "government conspiracies," the "New World Order," and "FEMA Camps" were the types of things that would instantly get you labelled as a crackpot. Yet, day after day we're constantly hearing a new politician stand up to proclaim that the current financial crisis is an opportunity to create a new world order and a new system of doing things. What do the skeptics say now?

What got me thinking about all of this again was another story I reported on here just this past week:
"FEMA Camps A Reality," which describes the plans by our federal government through a Bill that was introduced in Congress to build FEMA Camps on existing military bases! The key here is that they are now openly announcing the camps, and that means, they are getting ready to move with them. Google "HR-645" for yourself. The final piece of the New World Order agenda has been put in place, and we simply go about our business like it's nothing.

Alex Jones discussed this latest development on his show the other day. Simply listen to the audio and pay no attention to the video images that accompany these clips because I found them to be distracting, but only because it's a graphic depiction of the beginning of the Holocaust. Have a listen:

Quayle's 90-Day Martial Law Scenario Gets More Teeth! FEMA's Here! (Part 1)



Quayle's 90-Day Martial Law Scenario Gets More Teeth! FEMA's Here! (Part 2)



Quayle's 90-Day Martial Law Scenario Gets More Teeth! FEMA's Here! (Part 3)



The important thing to remember about this is that it wouldn't take much for the government to declare Martial Law. We always seem to think of it in the context of World War III breaking out or something of that magnitude when the reality is much more frightening. A nuclear attack is what our minds always think of as what would precipitate the implementation of Martial Law on a national scale, but actually any "national emergency" - - any occurrence, including a natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or any other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States.

Thus, there is not only a precedent in this country for this to occur, but also a legal document in place that would allow for it to happen again, and in response to any number of scenarios aside from solely a nuclear attack on the homeland. So, the only question that remains is whether or not Martial Law is right around the corner or simply a tool that will remain in our government's toolbox to be used if and when it is deemed absolutely necessary.

One can only guess at this point what will happen if anything. However, it's not too hard to envision a scenario involving Martial Law that could unfold should the economy get even worse and suddenly collapse altogether. In fact, word on the street (i.e. in halls of Congress) is that Henry Paulson threatened Representatives with Martial Law if they didn't vote for that first Bailout Bill back in the Fall. Here's additional video proof:



It goes without saying that a devastating terrorist attack (one that dwarfs 9/11 as a means of "testing" Obama, and one that would fulfill the "mark my words" prophecy) could also create the necessary conditions needed to implement Martial Law.

Let's pray we never have to experience our own military serving as a police force on busy streets throughout this country. Keep your eyes and ears open and do your own investigative reporting if you don't want to take my word for it (
Google makes that quite easy these days). Want more proof? Google InfraGard. Google "Rex-84" too. Examine the evidence for yourself and use your God-given brain to make your own conclusions. At the very least, you have just been given a recipe for success during a time when spiritual deception rules the day.

Most importantly, put your trust and protection in the Lord, and not in any government or military to save you. When and if a crisis occurs you'll be forced to fend for yourself anyway, and the greatest source of protection is to place your faith in the saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Stay alert. Keep looking up.

State Of The Union

Posted by JRed

Stunning news that the global unrest has now led to global riots throughout Europe where the political and economic picture is a lot darker than it is here in North America.

Thanks to the virtual blackout by the mainstream media in accurately covering this story, Americans would never know that the failing economic picture is leading to a lot of global unrest - - and I mean a lot!

Here's
a summary of the unrest in France, Russia, Madagascar, Iceland, Davos, Greece, Guadeloupe, Bulgaria, Latvia, Britain, and Lithuania. The number of countries experiencing social unrest will probably top 50-60 by the time we get to the summer of hell, which is what it will be if Vice President Joe Biden's "mark my words" 6-month "guarantee" of a "generated international crisis" actually holds true.

So, should we Americans fear that civil unrest and riots are in our near future? What is the current state of the union? First off, I don't think that any Christian should be ruled by a spirit of fear under any circumstances. Cling to the Lord and Savior and He will bless you with a sense of peace and calm despite all the chaos?

Still, how likely is it the the same types of things will be happening here soon? Well, I think we already answered that in previous articles. Stay tuned tomorrow and throughout the week for additional updates on the likelihood of this very scenario.

In the meantime, there is a glimmer of hope that some Americans are taking notice, and that they're trying to do all they can to prepare for what may be coming.


Courtesy of the
Campaign For Liberty blog, it seems that those patriotic Constitutionalists up in New Hampshire (God bless them!) are pulling Washington's chain again with a piece of legislation called HCR 6. Simply put, the New Hampshire Bill would tell the federal government to take a hike on matters where power has not been given to the feds.

Leading by example, the people of New Hampshire have boldly put the federal government on notice with
HCR 6 : A Resolution Affirming States' Rights based on Jeffersonian principles. Currently in committee, introduced for all to hear.

Can you imagine any state in today's economic turmoil putting the federal government on notice? Well, that is exactly what New Hampshire has done and all other states should follow their example. With their House Concurrent Resolution they've spelled out exactly what violations will no longer be tolerated. More over the resolution doesn't stop at a mere legislative warning but carries it to the executive and judicial realms as well.

Listen to the language from the resolution; hear it echo in your mind. Specifically:


"That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:

I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.

II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.

V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.

VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and

That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually. Any future government of the United States of America shall require ratification of three quarters of the States seeking to form a government of the United States of America and shall not be binding upon any State not seeking to form such a government; and

That copies of this resolution be transmitted by the house clerk to the President of the United States, each member of the United States Congress, and the presiding officers of each State’s legislature."


Gary Wood sums things up quite nicely when
he writes: "Anyone believing they are alone in our struggle for a restoration of our foundational principles must now realize they are not. Here is a legislature willing to lead by way of active legislative resolution. Reading through the entire resolution anyone will be bolstered with pride who stands against the tyrannical course our immerging socialist democracy is currently on. As we see this level of resistance we can take heart in knowing our time of restoration is coming. If/when this is passed there should be bells ringing across the land." Amen!

At least one state has enough common sense (and educated citizens) to recognize the very frightening implications of what's being seriously discussed and proposed in Washington D.C. let alone around the world these days. Personally, I commend them for their bravery, courage, and desire to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution. Now if we can only get the other 49 states to open their eyes.

Sadly, I'm afraid that's a pipe dream and wishful thinking because the simple fact of the matter is that state budget troubles are worsening throughout the nation. States are facing a great fiscal crisis. At least 46 states faced or are facing shortfalls in their budgets for this and/or next year, and severe fiscal problems are highly likely to continue into the following year as well. Combined budget gaps for the remainder of this fiscal year and state fiscal years 2010 and 2011 are estimated to total more than $350 billion. Oh yeah,
California is already broke, so I figure some states will have no choice but to play BOHICA (sorry for being a little vulgar, but it angers me beyond belief that things have come to this and that many people are still completely clueless about what's going on in the world today!) with anything coming out of Washington.



This recalls to mind
what we considered might be the catalyst for calling a modern-day Constitutional Convention. The current economic "crisis" is the tool, the highly planned and patient tool, to set up the global governing bureaucracy for real and for certain with the second convening of the Constitutional Convention in the wings. The big wigs tried it before in 1976, and they are trying again, but this time having manufactured national bankruptcy as public fear-based appeasement.

This is a serious indeed, but the real question is whether people even care. I've mentioned this to people since learning about it myself a couple of months back, and no one seems to be as upset as I am. What happened to us? When did we stop caring? Probably, the moment we turned the corner and entered the end times.

A little known Article of the U.S. Constitution unfortunately paints a grim picture for us even if we are successful in getting a spotlight to shine on this movement. Article V (of the U.S. Constitution) contains no requirement that the states be represented in a Con Con. You may want to read that again! Also, calling a Con Con is not only wholly unnecessary to the purpose of a balanced federal budget (could this be the "big bang" that the U.S. economy is supposed to be presented any day now by the Obama administration?), but will unquestionably result in an outcome as unimaginable to most Americans as it will be lethal to our nation.

All this being said, does any of this news bring to mind what we're told in Daniel 7:25 about the Antichrist? It should!

Daniel 7:25 - "And he shall speak words against the Most High and shall expect to change seasons and laws, and everything shall be delivered into his hands for a time and times and until half a time." (
New English Translation of the Septuagint; for more info on why we're looking at the Septuagint text, please refer to the 2-part series titled "The Antichrist's Checkmate?")

What is the current state of the union?

George from the
Urban Survival blog wrote it best: "Would the Founders have entrusted the public with 'voting' if they had a better understanding of the statistical performance of the mass-media hypnotized public? Not that it matters, for sure...Corpmedia/lobbyists and spinsters have already hijacked free decision-making. Still..."

Pray for spiritual discernment in regards to these matters. Most of all, keep looking up!

BALDWIN: Christians Use Prophecy To Excuse Laziness

Posted by JRed

This is an EXCELLENT commentary from Chuck Baldwin today!

His views resonate with me because (I have to admit) I've been prone to every now and then become so burdened and overhwelmed by what I see going on in the world that is prophetically significant that it's sometimes easy to take a "this-isn't-really-that-important-in-the-grand-scheme-of-things" approach to life.

I should clarify that those instances are few and far between and that they usually have to do with the seemingly mundane day-to-day stuff, and not the seemingly urgent issues that he's addressing here in this piece.

Still, I can identify with what he's saying and think he nails it. However, I should also note that while I'm in complete agreement about the current existence of apathy amongst Christians today in regards to such things, I do not agree with his assessment that we're not close to the return of Jesus Christ.

I've said it many times before and I'll say it again: I would be absolutely shocked if my generation (I'll be 30 in mid-June) didn't see the fulfillment of end times prophecy and the literal Second Coming of Jesus Christ. In addition, I would be shocked if the events of the Tribulation did not begin within the next few years (maybe 10 or less) if not much, much sooner. That's just my personal view.


Christians Use Prophecy To Excuse Laziness
By Chuck Baldwin
February 3, 2009

In response to my two previous columns regarding the current development of a devilish New World Order, many professing Christians wrote me with comments to the effect that we should not be concerned about whatever global tyranny may be developing, because "it's all a part of God's plan," or "Jesus is coming soon," and similar statements. I, too, believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth. But, then again, so did Christians from every generation over the last two millennia. In fact, the Apostle Paul was looking for the return of Christ while he lived (Philippians 3:20). But does anticipation of Christ's Second Coming excuse personal neglect, indifference, and downright laziness? Of course not.

Had pastors and Christians of colonial America believed and acted as most Christians believe and act today, this country would still be a Crown colony and we would never have known the freedoms and liberties that our forebears bequeathed to us. Christians of that era, however, believed that it was their duty and obligation to fight for right and do everything within their power to resist tyranny. They also believed that God would honor and bless their efforts, which He certainly did!

It is extremely difficult for me to reconcile the apathy and slave-like mentality that seems to permeate modern Christendom (in America) with both our own heritage and the very Word of God. For example, the Apostle Paul is very clear when he writes that a Christian must never "do evil, that good may come" (Romans 3:8). Yet, that is exactly what many, if not most, Christians are doing today.

When confronted with an obvious evil (a burgeoning tyrannical New World Order, not to mention a number of lesser evils), modern Christians will shrug and glibly say, "It's God's will; we must not oppose it," or words to that effect. This attitude says, "I will tolerate or even condone evil in order to hasten Christ's return."

In the first place, no one knows when Christ will return, no matter how many books or tapes they have produced to say they do. In Acts chapter 1, Jesus was asked by His disciples if He would, at that time, set up His kingdom.

The first words out of His mouth were, "It is not for you to know." Oh, we can speculate, surmise, and make educated guesses, but that's the best we can do. It's time we were honest enough to admit it: only God knows when Christ will return. In fact, Jesus said, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only" (Matthew 24:36).

In the meantime, millions of Christians across America are trying to play God. They talk as if they know when Christ will come. It's actually worse than that. They have the attitude that they have no personal responsibility to defend freedom and resist despotism. They seem to look at God as some kind of glorified fireman, who is obligated to rush in at the last minute to rescue them from a burning fire - - a fire that they helped ignite, or at least, refused to put out themselves when they had the opportunity to do so.

It's the old, "God would not let that happen in America" syndrome.

How arrogant can we be? Ask believers from despotic regimes around the world what they think about God letting tribulation come, and they will quickly tell you, "We are already in tribulation." Are Christians in the United States really that arrogant as to believe that God loves them more than He loves believers in other countries? If not, can we not see that if believers around the world have suffered (and still suffer) the heavy hand of tyranny and oppression, it is certainly possible for tyranny and oppression to come to our land? The fact is, the only reason that Christians in America have not (for the most part) suffered tyranny and oppression is because of the hard work and sacrifice of our forefathers. We are simply enjoying the fruit of their labor.

In the second place, how do we know what God would do, if we only had the backbone to do our duty? How do we know that God would not give America "a new birth of freedom" for our children and grandchildren, if we only had the courage and fortitude to oppose the evil being thrust upon us by these would-be tyrants? America is only the "land of the free," because it was the"home of the brave." Take away the latter and we lose the former. And that is exactly what is currently happening.

In the third place, Christians have a moral imperative to resist evil, even if their efforts are fruitless. We are not responsible for outcome, only effort. Believers throughout history acted on principle, leaving the results with God (read Hebrews chapter 11). Some were delivered; some were not.

That did not matter. What mattered was doing one's duty. We Christians are to give our bodies as "a living sacrifice" (Romans 12:1). It is God's prerogative to use our sacrifice as He sees fit. Therefore, there is no such thing as a "losing effort," when it comes to doing right. Doing right(resisting evil) is its own reward. The three Hebrew children were not commended because God delivered them from the burning fiery furnace; they were commended because they were willing to go into the burning fiery furnace. So must we be.

I believe the real reason why so many professing Christians are so apathetic and indifferent to what is happening has nothing to do with the teachings of Scripture, Bible doctrine, eschatology, or anything of the like. It has everything to do with old-fashioned laziness. Today's average Christian just flat does not want to be bothered. He has a comfortable house, an easychair, television, and a set of golf clubs in the closet. He takes two or three weeks' vacation every year, goes to church on Sunday (a church that does not intrude on his comfort zone, of course), pays taxes, and votes for his favorite "pro-life" Republican candidate every two years, and assumes that he is a "good" Christian and "patriotic" American. He is neither!

A real Christian patriot would never allow his country to be taken over by a gaggle of elitist goons bent on stealing his liberties - - including his religious liberties - - without doing everything in his power to prevent it. A real Christian patriot is active, alert, engaged, zealous, and committed to preserving liberty.

What if Jesus doesn't come for another 100 years? Another 200 years? What are we going to say to our grandchildren when they ask us what we were doing when our freedoms and liberties were being stolen? What will we say to our Christian forebears when we meet them in eternity? They sacrificed everything so that we could live in peace and freedom. What will we say to them? What will we say to God, who handed this land of liberty to us on a silver (albeit blood-soaked) platter?

Tell me again that "there is nothing we can do about it," or "it's God'swill," or "Jesus is coming soon." Better yet, tell it again to the suffering Christians around the world; tell it again to our Christian forebears; tell it again to your children and grandchildren who are going to inherit a land of tyranny and oppression, all because you were too lazy to resist.

I know unbelievers who have more character and determination about preserving liberty than many who call themselves Christians. And I have a ton more respect for them, too. Our Lord told us, "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required" (Luke 12:48). Yes, Christians in America have been given the best of both worlds, and many do not even appreciate it enough to see to it that their own children - - their own flesh and blood - - will live to enjoy the same blessings. They are pathetic!

So, the next time you hear some piety-draped Christian talking about how he won't engage the enemy and fight for liberty, because of prophecy, or some other spiritually-sounding platitude, just remember, it has nothing to do with prophecy, or anything of the sort: it has everything to do with old-fashioned laziness. My feeling toward him is the same as that of Sam Adams (a fellow Christian) toward the Tories of old: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest for freedom - - go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!" Amen!

Below are links to an excellent Bible study on the end times prophecies found in the Book of Isaiah (the prophet most often quoted in the New Testament) by Jack Kelley.

This will not only serve as a solid foundation for what to expect in the very near future as these end times prophecies are fulfilled, but it will also clearly express God's desire to get our attention so that He can save us, thus, answering the question, "Why study prophecy?"

Imagine if this world wasn't a fallen one. Imagine if a majority of the world always did what was right. Imagine if our leaders truly had our best interests at heart. Imagine if Hollywood and the mainstream media tried to help make this world a better place instead of spewing the same type of garbage they've given us for decades now.

Well, one group tried to do just that during yesterday's Super Bowl. Unfortunately, this nation proved - - once again - - what's more important to them (here's a hint: it's not truth, morality, or God's law).

Have you heard about one of the commercials that was banned from appearing during yesterday's Super Bowl? It's called "Imagine Spot 1," and it's truly brilliant ad that turns the tables on the new administration's policy position on the issue of abortion.

Sadly, many people don't even know this ad exists. NBC, in a disturbing show of censorship, had nixed this powerful Pro-Life ad slated to air on Super Bowl Sunday. The commercial was created by a Catholic group called Fidelis to drive home the potential of human life. Take a look:

Imagine Spot 1



After its run on Black Entertainment Television (BET), the spot is now over 1.2 million YouTube hits! NBC justified the slight by saying that the ad was too political in nature. In reality, these 41 seconds do more to inspire than the hundreds of other Super Bowl ads that use sex and alcohol to wow viewers. It's ironic that producers pull out the rule book when they want to police traditional values, but when their stars do something really out-of-bounds the networks swallow their whistle.

Imagine if we finally recognized the signs of the times, and realized our time was short. Imagine if we finally turned to God and wholeheartedly placed our full faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Imagine that. Come quickly Lord.

The Politics Of Semantics

The Politics Of Semantics

Posted by JRed

I came across this story after reading up on some news items related to yesterday's exciting Super Bowl.

I'm always intrigued by the words and phrases that are chosen in politics as well as for news headlines and stories. Why? Because we all know that words convey meaning and emotions whether we are conscious of them or not.

So, I was interested to read about evangelical magazine Christianity Today using the term "anti-abortion," rather than "pro-life," to refer to a CatholicVote.com ad, which NBC had refused to air during the Super Bowl.

Did you know that journalists refer to what's known as a Stylebook, which is sort of like the industry's manifesto for how to write appropriately? Yes, it's true! Clearly, this is why there's such a prevalent bias in the mainstream media, and why you can almost pick up any major newspaper in the country (or turn on any of the major TV networks) on any given day, and get the same news almost verbatim!

The term "anti-abortion" isn't used by reporter Sarah Pulliam in the body of her article posted at CTliveblog, but it is used in her January 30 article's headline - -
Anti-Abortion Super Bowl Ad Rejected by NBC - - on the magazine's Twitter page (see screenshot below).



By using "anti-abortion" in its headline, Christianity Today appears to be following the lead of the Associated Press. The AP calls for the term "anti-abortion instead of pro-life and abortion rights instead of pro-abortion or pro-choice" in its Stylebook. AP goes further and frowns on the term "abortionist," saying it "connotes a person who performs clandestine abortions," so a reporter should "use a term such as abortion doctor or abortion practitioner," it counsels.

While many journalists and news agencies outside the AP follow the Stylebook, they are free to supersede the manual where they see fit.


So, the question remains:
Can media outlets use the term "Pro-Life" instead? Because Anti-Abortion seems like pejorative labeling.

NewsBusters contacted Christianity Today online managing editor Ted Olsen about this and he sent this reply defending the choice of "anti-abortion" as the label for the video in question:

"A two-second search would have shown that we use pro-life quite a bit, Ken. What was the point of the post? To suggest that CT is compromising on abortion? What the heck?The headline is specific. The ad is against abortion. It's not about embryonic stem cells, assisted suicide, emergency "contraception," etc. It's about abortion. And it's against it. It's an anti-abortion ad from a pro-life group.Can you name one mainstream pro-life group that considers anti-abortion pejorative? Proud to be anti-abortion, Ted"

Is this analysis unfair? Do you think that it's much to do about nothing? Should we pay closer attention to the words and phrases we use to report on the news? Personally, I don't believe this analysis or questioning of Christianity Today is harsh or unwarranted. After all, just think about how pro-Abortionists have framed the entire issue by referring to it as "Pro-Choice" instead. Who in their right mind would be against "choice" in general!?! Because I can't think of anyone including myself.

However, when you attach it to an issue (like those in this movement have) then it's a whole other story. Still, this is precisely how politics of semantics works - - it's subtle, but very effective.

Olsen's comments seem to echo a disturbing new trend in Christian circles these days. Let me explain what I mean. A perfect example can be found in my recent visit to Borders last night. If you're not familiar with Borders they're a bookstore chain much like Barnes & Noble. I received a Borders gift card for Christmas, and decided it was time to get a new book to read. Now, I hadn't been to a bookstore in quite some time because normally I just purchase things online instead. Boy was I in for a shock!

I was simply blown away by some of the authors and titles that were found on the "Christian" bookshelves! Many had no place being there at all. Sure, on the surface they might seem "religious" and "spiritual," but anyone who knows their Bible can spot the wolves in sheep's clothing a mile away!

That's my point here. We shouldn't take an attitude that it's "no big deal" because we're fighting an any and a culture that is fiercely opposed to us and our belief system. Do you think they would let up one bit in their style of attacks and approach to fostering more support on the issues they deem worthy? Absolutely not! So, why should we? Give the devil an inch and he'll become your ruler.

Be careful and monitor what is presented to us these days as being "Christian" because in these last days deception truly rules that day.

The One, The Appeaser, The Gullible

Remember all the Obama supporters who thought it was a welcomed change in rhetoric and policy for a President to express his desire to sit down across from the table and talk with our enemies?

I can only imagine that those same people must've felt vindicated when "their guy" followed through on his promise less than 2 weeks into his term when he wrote a love letter of sorts to Iran and its leaders.

Well, I wonder how they feel about things now.

The Iranians say Obama's offer to sit and talk without preconditions shows American weakness and failure. What a shock!


Breitbart reported:

"US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of 'domination' has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday. 'This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed,' Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency. 'Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change,' he added. After nearly three decades of severed ties, Obama said shortly after taking office this month that he is willing to extend a diplomatic hand to Tehran if the Islamic republic is ready to 'unclench its fist.' In response, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh tirade against the United States, demanding an apology for its 'crimes' against Iran and saying he expected 'deep and fundamental' change from Obama."

Precisely why you do not negotiate from a position of weakness with the Muslim world, or with thugs like Castro and Chavez. They perceive talking as cowardice and weakness because, well, it is. But that hasn't stopped The One, The Appeaser, The Gullible.

Maybe President Obama and his administration should get up off of their knees and give it another try. Maybe they should pretend the Iranians (and the rest of our nation's enemies) are the Republicans.

Of course, we all know that real and lasting peace will never exist on Earth between men until Jesus Christ returns to defeat the Antichrist.

With news that the U.S. is set for a "big bang" financial cleanup as well as persistent rumors that banks will be nationalized we all might want to pay very close attention to some of the concepts and proposals that will be floated out there as a solution to this mess.

Regardless of what's pitched and presented to the American public, the prophesied one-world economy is closer to becoming a reality than ever before in the course of history. More proof of the times we are living in for those who remain on the fence, skeptical of Christianity and the Holy Bible.

Hal Lindsey had a new article published at WorldNetDaily last week about how close we are to the fulfillment of this MAJOR end times prophecy, which will be just one facet of the Antichrist's "one-world everything" system of government (and total control).

For those unfamiliar with this Biblical last days prophecy,


In light of his views, and in the event that you still have a tough time believing in all of this "Christian mumbo jumbo" prophecy stuff, take a look at the following FACTS:

* When the baby boomers start retiring the deficit could get to $53 trillion, which is a $175,000 debt for every person alive in the U.S. today!

(As of 2008 our Federal Budget Deficit consists of the following debts)
* $610 billion in Social Security
* $330 billion in Medicare
* $204 billion in Medicaid
* $607 billion in Military
* $936 billion Everything Else
* TOTAL: $2.9 trillion dollars in the hole and growing...

(Federal revenue - - what is coming into the government)
* $1,220 billion in Personal Income Taxes
* $910 billion in Payroll Taxes (FICA)
* $345 billion in Corporate Income Taxes
* $46 billion in Other Revenue

* If you add the numbers and subtract Revenue - Deficit you come up with a $410 billion Deficit!!! That's today, but it's growing like a monster. In the last 40 years, 35 of those years have been budget deficits, and only 5 years have been budget surpluses.


Our government is living beyond its means just like the American people in general. We cannot sustain this before we go down the tubes as a nation. A must watch video below called "I.O.U.S.A." courtesy of The Peter G. Peterson Foundation
:



Now, ask yourself if a one-world economy is possible as a solution to this national and global financial crisis. How could it not be, right? Regardless of what you might think, the rest of the world thinks that it is whether it's calling for a "New World Order" or proposing a regional North American Union type of government and economic system - - and these are secular types!

If your god in this world has been the almighty U.S. dollar I'm sorry to tell you this, but you've been worshipping an idol this entire time! Now is the time to repent and place your faith and trust in the security of the one true God Yahweh, and the saving grace offered to you by the shed blood of His only Son Jesus Christ.

If you're not sure where to start perhaps you should try this: Father God, I know I need You because I am a sinner, but also know that I can never get to You on my own. There's nothing I can do on my own to make up for my sins; nothing I could do on my own to earn favor and forgiveness from you or to secure my place in Heaven when I die. The only thing I can do is to make a conscious decision that Jesus Christ came to this world for me. He took my sins upon Himself, was crucified in my place, died for me, and was resurrected so that I may live forever. I accept Him and His sacrifice, and desperately want to receive Your Son Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. When He conquered death for my sake He gave me access to You. Thank You for your grace and your mercy. Thank You for forgiving me and for sending the Holy Spirit to transform my life from this moment forward. I pray that you transform my life from this day forward and give me a heart and a mind that desires to not only get to know you, but to be with you as much as possible. Teach me how to live, and teach me how to share this message with others before it's too late for them. Amen.

Freaky Friday: Fantasy Or Fact?

Posted by JRed

Ok, so today I thought I'd unveil a new feature here on Look Up Fellowship that I call "Freaky Friday: Fantasy Or Fact?" that will appear every week on - - you guessed it - - Friday.

I've concluded that the more surreal and "out there" our reality becomes, the harder it is to talk about such things (what I see as being prophetically significant) seriously especially in a Christian forum like this. Gosh, any quick look at the Comments portion of each article will prove this sometimes!

Of course, I'm very grateful because a majority of you wouldn't be here regularly if you didn't seem to think that we were on to something, and that God - - as prophesied - - is no longer "shutting up the words" or "sealing the book" since this is now "the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4). So, that being said, these "F4 (FFFF)" columns will be more for those people who just happen to stumble upon this site.

The theories and ideas expressed in this category will most likely reflect the very real thoughts and questions I have about a particular subject (those that immediately stir my soul and set off bells and whistles within), but to avoid the "you're-just-another-crazy-crackpot-tin-foil-hat-wearing-Christian-doomsday-wacko" label, I figured that by writing about such things under the banner of "Freaky Friday: Fantasy Or Fact?" it would give me greater leeway in exploring such ideas, and prevent people from simply writing me off from the start.

In addition, I want to officially invite you to forward me your ideas, observations, and theories as well since this is where they would be explored (some of you have already done that - - thank you).


F4: MARK OF THE BEAST SYSTEM IMMINENT?


Without further adieu, I give you our first installment in this new section: "Freaky Friday: Was A Recent Headline A Signal To Implement The Mark Of The Beast System?" The headline?
"Ancient Lefties: The History Of Obama's Handedness" as found on Yahoo! yesterday. I'll explain in a moment. Trust me, this will be fun.


A brief aside. I must give credit where credit is due. Keeping in mind that it's a secular forum (but that in no way diminishes the credibility of his amazing work; I just wanted to note that fact for those of you who might visit his site), Christopher Knowles of The Secret Sun was the one who first identified the strange and almost supernatural tone to the various headlines that appear on Yahoo's Main Page, which he called "Yahooccultism." Here's
where it all began and here's the link to more examples for you. I know, it sounds absurd! It's a good thing we're discussing this within the context of this new "Freaky Friday" series, but hear me out on this one. Whatever it is, there's no denying Knowles' observation that, "What I see is a process where this kind of information and conditioning will simply become more and more a part of the media white noise until it becomes fait accompli. And then everyone will act like they all knew it all along." Precisely!

Perhaps this next section will help to clarify my thinking. First, we need to consider how any form of advertising and marketing works on its intended audience psychologically. Simply put, words convey meaning and emotions whether we are conscious of them or not. Images do the same thing. If there was nothing to this field of study then politicians would never give speeches, Hollywood wouldn't exist, companies wouldn't spend millions of dollars each year (
or each minute!) to promote their products/services, and Hitler would never have employed the use of so much Nazi propaganda through symbolism.

Now that we've laid the foundation we need to recall the other piece of this puzzle. Recently, we documented the existence of so-called "secret societies" and highlighted the fact that many powerful politicians (let alone corporate executives from some of the most well-known companies in the world) share a common bond through membership in these exclusive groups. We've also presented evidence to prove that throughout their existence these organizations and its participating members of ruling class elites seem to demonstrate a singular hunger - - world domination and control over everyone and everything. Clearly, this has to be how their mere existence factors into the entire end times scenario as prophesied in the Holy Bible. How else do you explain the current obsession with creating a New World Order (i.e. prophesied one-world government) that the future Antichrist will use in his rise to power? Again, Satan and his army are not going to simply show up one day waving a flag and shouting through a megaphone, "Hey everyone! The Antichrist and his one-world everything is finally here! Now, we're going to destroy you all!" It's just not going to work that way.

Now, let's remember that the key to all of this is to first understand that occult symbolism is their language, and it functions as a power tool of socialization and recognition. These people believe that such symbolism holds the key to unlocking spiritual forces of power for them to wield here on Earth, and heir language (the way they communicate with each throughout the world) is through the use of RITUALS, SYMBOLS, and NUMBERS, which is done in honor and worship of the ancient gods and goddesses they worship. Once you
understand that language you can almost recognize each time they are "communicating" with one another.

The key is to look at all the major news headlines and key information within the story itself as pieces of a big puzzle. The way it usually works for me is that I'll begin to see different pieces of the same whole emerge from many different and unlikely sources - - strangely at roughly the same time too - - and once I recognize the way in which they all might be related to one another I somehow "connect" them together to form a more complete whole of the same thread. Does that make any sense whatsoever?

Look, I know how this all sounds, but since this is "Freaky Friday: Fact Or Fiction?" I'm hoping you'll indulge me for the remainder of this piece. Maybe this is a good time to encourage you to read
Sue Bradley's latest work because she does a much better job explaining things than I ever could. I think she nails it when she wrote about this nation (although she could've just as easily have been writing to the entire world), "Many continue to mull the enigmatic and ill-defined circumstances which have beset this once prospering republic, yet any explanation lacking the inclusion of spiritual examination is premised upon the inaccurate."

Why is that? Why is a "supernatural" and/or "spiritual" explanation of anything off limits these days? I propose that what makes these elites of the secret societies so powerful is the fact that they believe in and acknowledge the very real spiritual forces at work in our daily lives. Albeit dark forces, but still. Did you know that another common bond between these groups is their motto of sorts, which is that their plans are "Hidden In Plain Sight" because that would certainly give credence to this "theory" would it not? Franklin Roosevelt, abundantly aware of esoteric symbolism even cautioned us way back when: "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

Ok, let's circle back around so I can try to tie this all together. Assuming all the above is true, there was something strange about not only the appearance of this article (I mean, with all that's going on in this world today who really cares if the President and past Presidents were right-handed or left-handed!?!), but some of the things written within it. Specifically, the initial focus on the piece, one word, and one phrase that kept coming up, and I couldn't determine why I had personally reacted to it in the way that I had.

"Left-handed tools chipped 500,000 years ago"
"Six (or about 11 percent) were chipped using the left hand."


Seems innocent enough. So the words "chipped" were used. So what? I know, I know, but I don't know why, but their inclusion in this "news story" seemed very odd to me and I'll tell you why. I mean, why even use that angle in this discussion? My immediate and overwhelming thought was, "Oh my! Is this the 'go signal' between the elites announcing that the 'mark' is coming as an answer to our economic problems?" My very next thought was, "Man, you sure need some sleep! You've been 'on watch' for too long lately and it's starting to affect you!"

Could these powerful elites be practicing "Yahooccultism" to communicate with each other on a daily basis? Anything's possible. Is it likely though, even with their "Hidden In Plain View" taunts? Well, before you dismiss the concept entirely just ask yourself what's more prevalent and "in-your-face" than the Yahoo! Home Page. I think film and television fits that description quite nicely, and we all know how far back the government's use of and involvement with Hollywood goes to advance their own agenda. Is it really so far-fetched then to think that the same could be said about the Internet? Plus, does anyone else find it ironic that within the context of this debate the picture they use of Obama with the article is him waving with his right hand (nothing prophetic about that in relation to a conversation about the Mark is there?) as opposed to his left hand? I mean, we're talking about him being left-handed are we not?

Even skeptics have to wonder though (at least a little) because I should remind you that it was Vice President Joe Biden (then Senator Biden) who gave another "mark my words" moment to us. In this particular case, it was during the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Former Senator and now Vice President Joe Biden stated that RFID Chip Implants (an invention that fits the prophesied "Mark of the Beast" technology/system perfectly; not inherently evil, but the way someone like the Antichrist would use it to control mass population would make it definitely so) will be ruled on, and that he was concerned how a Chief Justice John Roberts would rule on such a proposal. What was that!?! Yes, he actually said it! Here's the video:



Well, there you have it. Not only will we be getting a "mark my words" generated crisis that will help a superman savior figure like the Antichrist to step in and "save us," (Maitreya anyone?) but we can also expect a "mark my words" landmark decision by the Supreme Court to determine the legality of implanting chips into humans and of using brain scans to determine which American citizens are deemed hostile and a threat - - both tools that this Antichrist figure will undoubtedly use to subject us to his authoritarian control!

What else? Ah yes, I also had to laugh because here we have yet another story about "The One" where the author attempts to connect him to being a messiah figure as evidenced by the statement, "The laundry list of lefties goes on through history, with records telling us that a number of famous ancient figures probably favored their southpaw as well, from Alexander the Great to Charlemagne, Holy Roman emperor." A "Related Article" was even included at the end of the story titled "Can Obama Save The Planet?"


COULD THE CHOICE OF "FACTS" BE A SLEIGHT OF HAND?


Again, assuming the proposed theory is true, then we need to consider the writer's choice of facts that were included in this piece as being carefully hand-picked to convey a very specific message to a very specific audience.

How else do you explain the inclusion of the Kenyan roots of left-handed people except in that it would give them reason to use the "signal/code words" like chip and chipped. Honestly, it is bizarre to me why they chose that fact out of all the others having to do with the existence, evolution, and mystique surrounding left-handedness. I would know because I'm left handed myself! In fact, I have a book called "Lefties: The Origins & Consequences Of Being Left-Handed" by Jack Fincher and there are very easily many more interesting things within this 200 page book that make the Kenyan facts seem inappropriate and ridiculous.


For instance, since this is a Christian website let's quickly look at a few facts about left-handedness from a religious perspective. After all, the Bible (and with it the full weight of both orthodox Judaism and Christianity) overwhelmingly favors one hand at the expense of the other. Predictably, things that are "good" in the Bible are said to be "righteous" while those that are "bad" are said to be "left out." Both the Old Testament and the New Testament refer repeatedly to the grace and power residing in, on, or at "the right hand of God" and His only begotten Son. For His part, in the Sermon on the Mount, Christ cryptically counsels His followers in doing charity to "let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth" (Matthew 6:3). The most ominous of this right/left dichotomy has to be Matthew 25:32-41 expressed by Jesus and having to do with the Last Judgment.

According to Jane Dillenberger, an authority on Biblical art at the Graduate Theological Seminary in Berkeley, the overweening right-handedness of its symbolism is as near to an absolute as anything in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Ambidextrous actually means "right-handed on both sides." It also means "hypocritical" or "deceptive" - - which, come to think of it, is a pretty accurate description of this whole sorry affair! Bottom line, left, in a word, is almost universally bad.

Here's my point...This was a "news story" about politicians who are left-handed. Forget about trying to figure out why this was even classified as being important enough today that people would want to read about it with everything else going on, but instead ask yourself this: In a political article about left-handedness wouldn't it have been much more appropriate to include the fact that the early Greeks, who in a presumably weak moment gave their word for left, aristera, to the aristocrats ("those best qualified to govern")? I'm just saying. Food for thought.


CONCLUSIONS: FACT OR FICTION?


In closing, I'm reminded of a few things.

"An Occult Hierarchy rules the world, and directs the course of human events. The movement is led by powerful men who reject Christianity, embrace the 'dark side,' and are dedicated to the formation of a world government and a world religion. Millions of people seeking 'a new spirituality' follow them. They control the government, the media, the tax-exempt foundations, many corporations, and both political parties." Stanley Monteith, MD

"The objectives of the occult masters and the very real forces they serve is overlooked by average citizens, and yet, according to sacred texts, a collaboration exists between such unregenerate social architects and fallen angels. If the electorate becomes bewitched of this truth, humans in league with demons can increase their control of the machine of municipal government through sophisticated networks of both visible and invisible principalities. This happens subconsciously or intentionally among those vulnerable to the sinister dark plan. This is a picture of a world system average people never comprehend. If most of humanity could see through the veil into the invisible world that inhabits this planet, they would find a world alive with good against evil. It is a place where the prize is the souls of men, and where legions war for control of its cities and people. The end game for the darkest of these powers - - together with their human counterparts - - is to stand in the place of God." Tom Horn

"There is a profusion of information, mis-information, dis-information but mostly mis-direction. There is a roster of participants, many unwitting, some with purpose, behind whom there is also an ancient legion of prodigiously adept and supernaturally equipped players." Sue Bradley

Surely, this theory of mine could be nothing at all. Then again, it could be everything. If we were somehow "listening in" on a message sent to the "enlightened" or "illuminated" ones of elite society then considering that this might have to do with the Mark of the Beast makes sense. Satan wants to mimic, mock, and destroy anything that's of or from God. We've just seen the favor of the right over the left in Christianity and the Bible so perhaps that's why the Antichrist will force people to take his Mark of the Beast on their right hand one day - - to mock God.

Ultimately, it bears watching given what we've looked at together today in this first installment of "Freaky Friday: Fact Or Fiction?" I hope you enjoyed this trip down the rabbit hole with me!

May God grant you wisdom and discernment to spot the lies and recognize the fact from the fiction. Be mindful of the numerous rituals, symbols, and numbers. No, not in pursuit of studying the occult, but a cursory knowledge that will help you to spot whenever these events occur in the real world that contain special significance.

We need to constantly be on guard and defend ourselves and our loved ones from the evil and deception that has seeped into our world because it's only going to get worse.

God bless! Maranatha!

Spiritual Invasion Has Begun

Posted by JRed

Forget about spiritual warfare. It's an outright spiritual invasion we need to worry about.

It seems like with each passing day we get another report of a brutal murder, unbridled mayhem, or just plain weirdness occurring in our world. Proof that the end times spiritual invasion has begun.

Ben Fairhall recently wrote, "What manner of diabolism is abroad in the world, when a man dressed as Santa Claus kills nine members of the same family in a town named Covina - - for the vineyard, the sacred bloodline of Scythia, Egypt and the Holy Land? And less than a month later, when a woman and two babies are killed by a resident of Sint-Niklaas, in a town whose flag is an explicit depiction of that same Scarlet Thread, the Sang Real? (Click
here.) Welcome to life at the End of the World. Where the star is always the same; and only the faces and the scenery change."

So true, and so sad. Even so, does anyone else feel as if the boundaries between the spiritual and the physical are deteriorating as a rapid rate? I mean, how else do you explain the sudden surge in bizarre violence taking place in the world just this past week alone?

First,
another gruesome tragedy at Virginia Tech where a student was decapitated. Second, a despicable crime in Belgium. What isn't being reported in the Western media, however, is how this killer was influenced by Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in the latest Batman film, and that it occurred on the 1-year anniversary of his death. Third, the story about a 24 year old man in Portland, Oregon indiscriminately shooting 9 people (the majority being High School exchange students) at an "under 21" nightclub known as "The Zone" on Saturday night. Next, we read about that horrific murder/suicide case involving a family in Los Angeles, CA. Then, I learned about the 22 killed in the continuing anarchy in Mexico. Today, I find this.


Students at a Mississippi high school said a fellow student spoke in tongues and made grave predictions for her classmates for three days. Some of those predictions included when students would die.

Pelahatchie High School students called reporters from TV station WAPT, convinced that an evil spirit had taken over Lashundra Clanton. "It was disturbing to a lot of students," Pelahatchie sophomore Rob Sparks said.

This week, Sparks said one of his classmates came to school in tears. She was speaking in a deep voice, he said, and sometimes spoke in tongues. Sparks said Clanton told students about little-known facts in their past and made predictions on how some of them would die. Sparks and his classmates said they think an evil spirit possessed the girl. They were so convinced that Sparks and his friends brought Bibles to school and had a devotional.

"Some believe, some don't." Clanton said. "They say it was the devil, but the devil only tells lies. Everything I said was the truth." Clanton said she admits she spoke in tongues and made predictions for her classmates, but she said it was God speaking through her, not the devil. "I didn't cuss anyone out," Clanton said. "If it was a demon, I would have tore that school up. I would have thrown desks and everything. I didn't say no cuss words at all."

Regardless of the truth in this circumstance, I think we can all agree that the lines between the seen and the unseen are becoming blurry as the fade away into nonexistence.

Interesting happenings these days indeed. In fact, it seems to resonate with
what we just looked at concerning Russ Dizdar's work on what he calls "The Black Awakening" that is in our near future.

That being said, while these isolated events depict that a spiritual invasion is already underway they are nothing compared to the horror and destruction that this world will see!

Now is the time to cling to the Lord and Savior for protection.

"Mark My Words..." Revisited

Posted by JRed

Obviously, both January 21st and January 22nd came and went without any catastrophe. Praise the Lord for His mercy, lovingkindess, and unparalleled patience despite our nation's sins so that more are given a chance to be saved by Him!

That original column generated a ton of interest and got a lot of us talking and sharing theories given everyone's own independent research on the subject. That being said, I think it's only appropriate to follow-up with a companion piece that attempts to refine our focus and analysis a bit.

Three key observations I have made since have astounded me:


1. God's fingerprints on the heavens (or what we would call space) is there for a reason. Remember, it was Satan who created a counterfeit of God's creation and man's resulting knowledge of Astronomy when he created Astrology (a perversion and an occult practice). It was God who had set the stars and planets in the heavens as a testament - - a storyboard if you will - - of His handiwork. In addition, it seems apparent that on Earth, things here often are mirrored by what's in the heavens. For instance, most scholars would agree that the measurements of the Earthly temple reflects things that are in the Heavenly temple. Just take another look at the Book of Job (the oldest book in the entire Bible, which provides us with some commentary on this subject let alone some great astronomical truths).


2. Perhaps January 21st/22nd was an important date, but not in the way we thought it would be. The one thing that's been bothering me since publishing that article was something I uncovered courtesy of the British press only a couple of days later. Even though I didn't find it until later, a questionable "photo gallery" appeared during the time period in question. It was Part 2 of a "fictional" slideshow about what would happen if nuclear devices were set off in major cities. What are the odds of that? I mean, curious timing, no? The culprits? Terrorists - - "Christian doomsday cultists" actually (because we all know there's a ton of those in the world today who present a serious threat to mankind) who "joined forces with extremists and Islamists." Seriously. I couldn't possibly make this stuff up! Now, consider all of that within the context of end times prophecy. Eerie isn't it?

Check out the original 2-part slideshow (Part 3 hasn't been released yet, but when it is I'll reference it for sure): Operation Blackjack (PART 1) AND Blackjack (PART 2). It seems that Part 2 (again, released during this particular window of 1/21 and 1/22) provided the first mention of the ultimate fate (destiny?) of the U.S. after London was hit by a terrorist nuclear attack. Notice anything odd about that name? Hmmm, isn't Blackjack a card game where you win by scoring 21? On second thought, it's almost like a "checkmate" in chess because if you score 21 you automatically win, and beat the house every time. That's oddly symbolic especially in light of the "mark my words" pronouncements given for January 21st and January 22nd. Again, what are the odds!?! Pun intended. They're definitely a bit more "in-your-face" about it all these days (there are no more secrets!), which leads me to believe they're confident in what's about to happen.

However, something that caught my eye is that these attacks are given with the date June 22, 2009. Why is that interesting? Well, going back to Biden's comments he did say it would happen within 6 months. He didn't clarify at the time if he meant 6 months from the date he was speaking such words in October or 6 months from the time Obama takes office. Powell was the one that said the crisis "that we don't even know about yet" would first present itself on either January 21st or January 22nd. So, one wonders...Maybe both men were referring to two different parts of the same event. Could Biden have meant that within 6 months of Obama taking office this "generated crisis" would occur? Because if so that would put things squarely in the month of June or precisely the time frame given with this "fictional" account. Could Powell have meant that on January 21st or January 22nd is when we would finally learn how this "generated crisis" would manifest itself? Because if so this "photo gallery" would fit. After all, Biden did say that he couldn't pinpoint where this "generated crisis" would come from yet, but could certainly "give you four or five scenarios..." Remember that part of his speech? Maybe this is why he said those things. Perhaps the plans hadn't been finalized and approved yet, but this slideshow was confirmation of what had been decided upon by the elite puppet-masters.

As mentioned, despite calls, questions, and complaints to the UK Telegraph as to the purpose and origins of a bizarre, offensive, and crudely put together “photo gallery” depicting a nuclear attack on London, the newspaper is featuring
part two of “Blackjack” on its website, which portrays 6 major cities being nuked before a fascist “Union of North America” is implemented. The first installment of the gallery featured on a section of the Telegraph website dedicated to art, culture, film and music, but seemingly held no artistic credence whatsoever, comprising merely of a series of crude pictures designed to instill fear into the viewer. The series of images is also replete with occult symbols with which those who have researched the Illuminati will be familiar. In the second part of the series, at 8:03am on June 22nd, 6 cities (New York City, Washington D.C., Toronto, Mexico City, Portland, and Los Angeles) all suffer a nuclear attack as mushroom clouds are depicted rising over the skyscrapers. The crumbling remains of the cities are shown one week later. The final few images show a revised U.S. flag with 5 stars in the middle, with black fighter jets roaring overhead as well as a “Department of Homeland Security Emergency Transmission” that tells people to “Stay at home and await further instructions.” The logo on the bottom right of the mock screenshot is of a Nazi-style eagle below the words “UNION OF NORTH AMERICA.” At the bottom of the logo are the words “Norvus Ordo Seclorum” or alternatively “Norvus Ordo Emporium” (the resolution isn’t high enough to make out the last word). Norvus Ordo Seclorum translates as “New Order of the Ages” or more traditionally, “New World Order.” The last image shows a British police officer with the Nazi-style eagle on his helmet and the “Union of North America” flag on his uniform. Presumably the message being sent is that a series of nuclear terror attacks will bring in a fascist style world government that will be headed by a union of America, Canada, Mexico, and Britain. Watch the full gallery of part two via the YouTube below and reach your own conclusions.




The entire project left me with many questions. What on earth is the purpose of this “photo gallery”, who is the author, and why is it being featured on a major UK newspaper website with no explanation whatsoever? Without proper clarification, this amounts to nothing more than bizarre fear mongering and propaganda. It is also downright offensive to people who live in the 7 cities being depicted as targets for the nuclear attacks. According to readers who contacted and questioned the Telegraph as to the origin and meaning of the picture gallery, the response was belligerent and hostile. Others who called the Telegraph received the same aggressive, interrogative overreaction when they asked about the gallery, but the questions need to keep being asked. This so-called “gallery” has no artistic merit whatsoever, so what is it doing in the “arts and culture” section of a major British newspaper? Part 2 cannot even be considered to have a plot, it just shows a series of major cities being nuked and then amateurish photo-shopped images of Nazi-style symbols on flags and police uniforms. Is someone’s sick fantasy being afforded exposure on a major UK newspaper website or are we being prepared for something? Is the UK's Telegraph being used to telegraph their plans? The rude and hostile response to people who have attempted to get clarification from the Telegraph only deepens the mystery. Contact [email protected] and politely ask for clarification on who the author of the gallery is, why it is being run when it obviously has no artistic merit, and if the Telegraph has considered the offense it is causing to people who live in the cities being depicted as victims of nuke attacks.

Surprisingly,
David Flynn's extensive research indicates that late June 2009 or early July 2009 is going to be extremely significant prophetically. In fact, that is when he believes that the ministry of the counterfeit Christ - - the rule of the Antichrist - - will actually begin! His findings are independently verifiable too, and they're based on Newton's Unified Field Theory! What are the odds of all of this!?! See the next paragraph for more on Flynn's work and amazing discoveries, which will put this all in greater context.

3. Further research uncovered some truly remarkable prophetic findings!!!
I was listening to a radio interview that David Flynn (author of
"Temple At The Center Of Time," which claims to have broken Newton's Unified Field Theory) gave back in August 2008 when he begin discussing the possible location of the Ark of the Covenant. As students of eschatology, we know that the Ark will play a significant role in the fulfillment of end times prophecy. The finding of an ancient ark would be the catalyst that motivates the Jews to rebuild the Temple. That's where this discovery began. 2 Maccabees and 2 Chronicles shares an amazing connection. You can go to Jerusalem, go to the Temple Mount, and if you look through the Eastern Gate the site of Mount Nebo itself is perfectly East to the Eastern Gate.


Here's where it gets interesting! Mount Nebo exists and is supposedly the place where Moses went up, and then had disappeared from the Israelites. In the New Testament Book of Jude we're told that his body was recovered, but the Old Testament says that he went up to Mount Nebo to see his inheritance, but he wasn't allowed to go into Palestine. Soon after, he died and supposedly this is where the angels buried him. Jeremiah was also motivated to place the Ark of the Covenant someplace in that area. That was the mountain where this all occurred. Nebo is actually from a root word in Hebrew that means "prophet" itself. Interestingly enough, it's connected to the god Mercury who I also learned was the pagan god of prophecy, and responsible for conveying messages from gods to men! But it gets deeper! It is from the name of the god Nebo that the name of King Nebuchadnezzar was derived.
Nebuchadnezzar (the king of Babylon when it destroyed Jerusalem) his name actually means "praise of Mercury" or basically "Nebo the god of Mercury in Babylon" or "Protected by Nebo" so there's this strange connection as well! Nebuchadnezzar symbolizes "logical mind wedded with desire" the typical ruler of earthy kings. Typically, we of today are "kings" like Nebuchadnezzar - - we have our great logic and science and have been blessed with seeming power and possession of the world's things.

So, again, there's this strange connection between pagan idolatry (those things honored and worshipped by the ruling class elites who a vast majority are a part of the numerous so-called "secret societies" all currently pushing for a New World Order or one-world government) of a god that conveys information, and from the name for the very prophets of God in that one place - - that mountain - - that happens to be the sacred cubit in relationship to the Temple Mount and exactly at the same latitude as the Temple Mount! What could God be trying to tell us with all of this? Is the "discovery" of the Ark of the Covenant and the resulting rebuilding of the Temple imminent?


Our God never ceases to amaze me! I mean, it's just incredible to me the layers upon layers of information that He is giving us these days, and all because He wants us to know clearly the times we are living in so that we can alert others before it's too late.

So, what do you think about all of this? What have you found? What has God impressed upon your heart regarding this subject matter?

One final note. Upon reading this intro yesterday at WashingtonPost.com, Joe Biden's much-examined prediction of a crisis "right around January 21st or 22nd" popped into recall:

"President Obama's top advisers are in the final stages of debating several perilous options to right the financial system, all of which are likely to prove unpopular and in some cases carry a significant risk of failure, according to sources in contact with the officials. The rapid deterioration of the economy has accentuated these hard choices. But each proposal is fraught with the risk of undermining the banking system, leaving Obama officials wrestling with how to strike the proper mix of emergency programs funded from the balance of the government's initial rescue program and any additional money requested from Congress."

Only a little stretching changes the meaning from "right after inauguration" to "a feature of the first 100 days." Maybe the important suggestion is that something that might merit comparison with 9/11 is definitely to be expected before too long (43 was tested, will 44 slip through untested?).

Whatever the process may be that conveys these bread crumbs of info and assembles them in our reckoning, are we getting hints of a forthcoming "White House decision" expected to be received by a largely disapproving public?

I believe we are.

***UPDATE 2/4/09: Former Vice President Dick Cheney: Obama Policies Mean "High Probability" That Terrorists Will Attempt Catastrophic Nuclear Or Biological Attack : Former Vice President Dick Cheney warned that there is a “high probability” that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack in coming years, and said he fears the Obama administration’s policies will make it more likely the attempt will succeed.***

***UPDATE 2/5/09: Operation Blackjack Part 3 Published : I'm absolutely speechless.***

Isaiah 17 And The Damascus Prophecy

Posted by JRed

Does Isaiah 17 say that Israel will one day nuke Damascus, Syria?

Isaiah 17:1 - -
"The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap"

Personally, I think what the Bible tells us in Isaiah 17 about Damascus' disappearance is one of the easiest prophecies to understand and figure out its place on God's prophetic timeline.

Damascus is famous for being the world's oldest city. Therefore, it is obvious we have an unfulfilled prophecy here. Another thing is immediately obvious as well: this prophecy is telling us that Damascus will be nuked, as I believe that nuclear weapons are the only way in modern times that a city would become "a ruinous heap" and cease "from being a city."

But when? Well, a few verses later we get a better idea of the time, and I'm afraid we may be quickly approaching the appointed time.

Isaiah 17:12-14 - -
"Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us."



Another Arab assault on Israel to wipe her from memory and steal her land (compare this with Psalm 83, which we've looked at quite a bit in recent weeks especially in relation to Bill Salus' explosive book "Isralestine," because it actually describes this same war on Israel by the only people in the world that want to "cut her off from being a nation that no one remember the name of Israel anymore").

The Isaiah 17/Psalm 83 War involves all the nations around Israel going at her. The current conflict between the Israelis and Hamas is only a skirmish in the grand scheme of things, and I do not see a reason any other countries would dare to get involved yet. I believe they are all biding their time until they can neutralize the nuclear trump card that Israel holds. Iran is working on that. Once Iran has Shehab-3 missiles with nuclear payloads, then I will be concerned about them using them soon, before they can be taken away or destroyed.

Unfortunately, two news reports from the past couple of days tell us we're getting dangerously close to fulfilling this prophecy. First, during "Operation Cast Lead,"
Israel warned Syria that it would bomb sites and facilities in Damascus if Hizbullah fired rockets on Israeli towns and communities in the North, Egyptian paper Al Ahram reported Tuesday so there's your direct reference to the Damascus prophecy. Yet, what about the other piece of this puzzle? You know, the part about this Arab coalition wanting to neutralize the nuclear threat? Well, it seems we got an update on that front as well since it was reported that Iran will have a nuclear weapon this year!

As of January 29, 2009, Damascus is still around, but the clock is ticking.

Origin Of The Antichrist

Posted by JRed

About a month ago Dr. David Reagan put out a "book review." Actually, many people considered it to be a personal attack on some brothers in Christ instead.

The Prophezine had a good summary of events on their website today that I wanted to share in the interest of being fair and balanced:


After David Reagan’s Jan / Feb issue of Lamplighter was published, we provided space for the authors to refute what David said. Joel Richardson as well as Walid Shoebat responded. Emails were sent to the other authors. If you missed thier responses, you can read them here.

READ NOW -
Joel Richardson's Responce >>>
READ NOW - Walid Shoebat's Responce>>>

This past weekend, I heard from Phillip Goodman, author of “The Assyrian Connection” asking me if I would include his response to David Reagan. Like I have mentioned in the past, we at Prophezine try to be “neutral ground” where authors can come and present their views. We support the Watchmen on the Wall and promote many great ministries out there.

Rodrigo Silva who runs “The Beast from the East” website has also been involved with this discussion and the promotion of the “Eastern Leg” ideal. I have included his very well documented argument in support of the Eastern Leg of the Roman Empire in this special issue also.

All four of these men have gone above and beyond in showing factual, historical proof as well as very strong scriptural evidence in support of this ideal. They all have strongly and gracefully refuted Dr. Reagan’s allegations as well as what is appearing to be very poor research on Dr. Reagan's part.

Folks we can believe what we may, but when fact and historical documentation is presented, it is only right that we as watchmen on the wall honestly weigh this evidence. Not weigh it with some preconceived ideas, notions or teachings of man which in fact may be in error.

We must apply proper biblical hermeneutics, maintaining context and author intent. I fear that there are those out there that refuse to look at the evidence in a honest light, but instead based upon what they have been taught, use that as the filter instead the Word of God, the Historical fact and proper interpretation.

We must strive for the truth, continually putting the theories into the fire and burn away the incorrect findings. If we are not willing to truly examine the evidence, then all we become are just a bunch of “YES” men to teachers. The four authors have presented strong enough evidence that being a watchman on the wall, it is my duty to examine it.

I am reminded of the following…

2 Timothy 3:1-7 (KJV) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:13 (KJV) But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 (KJV) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

If we are not willing to examine evidence that is presented properly, we run the risk in falling into what Paul warned young Timothy about. The blood of innocent is upon the hands of the watchmen, we must be diligent in our duties and ensure that what we are warning about is correct.
Daniel tells us that God told him to seal up the book till the end times where many will run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased (Daniel 12:4). Folks, we are in fact living in the last days. I feel that God has been revealing the knowledge that was once sealed up.

The problem is, if we are not willing to justly and honestly examine evidence presented, then we will fall prey to the itching ears and deceitful teachers that Paul warned us about. Me, I take my job seriously and I work hard to search the scriptures daily to see if what is being said is true.
I challenge you to do the same.


Well stated. Perhaps I need to go back and take a closer look at a post that referenced Reagan's "review" in "Will The Antichrist Be A Muslim?"

Is Maitreya The Antichrist?

Posted by JRed

I'm beginning to wonder if this Maitreya really is the Antichrist. At the very least, he's definitely laying the groundwork for the real Antichrist to rise to power one day. For all we know, if he's not the prophesied "Man of Sin" he may turn out to be the False Prophet instead.

The following headline appeared on January 22, 2009:
Bright Star Heralds The Emergence Of Maitreya The World Teacher.

I completely missed it! Thanks to an Anonymous visitor who brought this to my attention yesterday in our Comments section I can know alert the rest of you to a serious development.

First, if you're not familiar with who Maitreya is or what the group of people who have been working tirelessly for the past 30 years to introduce him to the world at precisely the right time believe then
I must strongly urge you to take the time to read this column from back in December about this individual, his people, and the serious prophetic implications of their efforts.



Remarkably, this latest Press Release even includes language that would give any Christian student of eschatology cause for concern given its overt references to how Maitreya's appearance will be likened to that of Jesus Christ!

I kid you not! Those promoting this Antichrist figure are becoming so bold that they claim that:

"In the very near future, people everywhere will have the opportunity to witness an extraordinary and significant sign, the like of which has been manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus. Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power will be seen around the world. What does this mean? How is it possible? The answer lies in the fact that this mysterious event is a sign, and heralds the beginning of Maitreya's open mission. Soon after the sign appears in our skies, Maitreya will give His first media interview on American television."

It doesn't end there though. I visited Share International's website (this is the organization that has worked to pave the way for Maitreya these past 30 years or so; it's almost like his own personal Public Relations Firm) to see if they had anything else to say about all of this. Indeed they did.

This is from a Q&A section that accompanies this recent announcement:

Q: Much, perhaps too much, is expected of the new American President. Do you think the world is being too optimistic? Barak Obama is expected to solve the major current world crises: the economic crisis, the environment, unemployment, collapsing industries, growing homelessness, rising poverty, conflict in the Middle-East and terrorism. Surely such a task would take a superman to get to grips with?

A: Absolutely true. Luckily, we do have a superman who really can show us the way to solve these problems - - His name is Maitreya. The rest is up to us. We have to make the right decisions in the light of Maitreya’s ideas. Obama could be a decisive voice for a ‘new’ America - - co-operative and willing to listen to others - - in the world.

Friends, this is MAJOR NEWS because it's like I've said before, I find it VERY HARD TO BELIEVE that these guys would spend so much time, so much effort effort, and so much money over the past 30 years preparing for a non-event that would render everyone involved a complete laughingstock.

Getting people to take them seriously after a fabulous faux pas like that might be a little tough to pull off don't you think? I mean, their ENTIRE MOVEMENT depends on this "emergence" and "Day of Declaration" being a complete success does it not? Food for thought that we may be a lot closer to the fulfilment of end times prophecy than we think.

So, stay strong, stay in the Lord, and stay skeptical about Creme's Maitreya (whoever he turns out to be), and what is sure to be his well-received "solution" to our global economic problems (if not a solution to everything that plagues us today - - war, famine, disease, environment, economy, energy, etc.).

Sure enough, right on cue, his supporters come right out and tell us exactly what to expect:

"On that open, public occasion, still unannounced as Maitreya, the World Teacher will present His views on the economic and financial chaos which now grips the world. He will explain its origins and final outcome, and present, to some extent, His recipe for amelioration of the present heavy burden on the poor of the world. Thus He will prepare the way for a more detailed and specific announcement of His ideas."

God help us.

***UPDATE 1/31/09: The Luciferian Star : If you thought our look at Mercury was something, wait until you see what Mark Mallett's study of Venus turns up! Plus, he ties it all back to this story about Maitreya. He also notes that Albert Pike, who wrote "Morals and Dogma," the ritualistic book for the Freemasons, often referred to how the Mason’s and/or Illuminati brotherhood planned their "events" around the orbit of Venus! These are the organizations which are recognized as co-ordinating (as best as humanly possible) a New World Order. Is it coincidence, then, that as world leaders across the globe are calling for a New World Order in the midst of economic chaos, that Venus is getting extraordinarily brighter? Unbelievable!!! NOTE: I don't share the same belief in and/or emphasize the figure of Mary like he does in his writings.***

God Is In Control

Posted by JRed

I feel I should clarify a few things especially after the theme of the last few entires, which in no uncertain terms comes right out to declare that an ancient conspiracy has existed since the beginning of time, promulgated by a select group of individuals in positions of influence and power who are all part of some network of so-called "secret societies" that work to establish a one-world government.

Let's remember that despite these facts, God is ultimately guiding and controlling events. These men and women think they are in control of what is happening, and some even think Satan (the god they openly worship through rituals and symbols here on Earth) is in control. No, God is in control. He is working out a purpose, and Satan is subject to Him and can only do what He allows him to do.

With that in mind, I came across a timely commentary from The Berean on this very subject. Perhaps this will help me to clarify my position.

Let's start by looking at Hebrews 11:3, which reads: "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible."

We need to understand three words here. The first is "worlds," which is the Greek aion meaning "ages," "periods of time," or "dispensations." The author is not referring at all to the created world - - the Earth. He means periods of time.

The second word is "framed," which gives the impression of a person building something, but that is not the author's intent. The same word appears in Hebrews 10:5, "Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared." This translation points to a different connotation.

The third word is "word." Normally, a Bible student would probably immediately think of logos as being the Greek for "word," but such is not the case here. It is instead the Greek word rhema, which means "the revealed word."

A good paraphrase of verse 3, then, would be: "By faith we understand that the ages were prepared by the revealed word of God." This verse is telling us that there is an UNSEEN HAND somewhere that is guiding the course of the periods through which mankind has lived! In other words, God is working out a purpose! People with faith look to the purpose He is working out and what He has revealed, and they see His hand guiding the destiny of nations as well as individuals.

This is an interesting, encouraging, faith-building concept because God is never far from the thoughts of a faithful person. Such a person, because he has had the mystery of God revealed to him - - the purpose He is working out - - begins to see God in everything that is happening because God is his companion. He has a relationship with Him. Because of his fellowship with God, he tries to see everything through God's eyes, as it were.

When God calls, one of the miracles He works in us by His Spirit gives us insight into His movements in the history of man. The Christian begins to see God in his environment, the Earth - - and discovers that it is all under God's control.

We can see where God says, "I raise up kings. I put down kings." Sometimes these are "the basest of men," but because we are beginning to think like God, we understand why He does such things. In Romans 13:1-2, we find out that all governments are ordained of God. He at least permits them to govern, and sometimes He directly installs them.

God is guiding and controlling events. Men think they are in control of what is happening, and some even think Satan is in control. No, God is in control. He is working out a purpose, and Satan is subject to Him and can only do what He allows him to do.

The psalmist says that God is not in all of the ungodly man's thoughts (Psalm 10:4). Andre Matisse, a French philosopher and writer, once said, "The universe is indifferent. Who created it? Why are we here on this puny mud heap, spinning in an infinite space? I have not the slightest idea, and I am quite convinced that no one has the least idea."

This is the way man looks at things, but Christians had better not look at them like this because they will not operate by faith. If we are operating by faith, we can begin to see events and circumstances in their fuller scope, as well as how they fit and how important they are to the purpose God is working out.

That purpose is that all should come to know Him. We can only know Him by first recognizing our dire need for forgiveness for our sins, and then by acknowledging that the only way to gain that forgiveness is to place our faith in Jesus Christ, whose grace, mercy, and shed blood gives us the salvation we seek.

This is the meaning of life.

FEMA Camps A Reality

Posted by JRed

For those of you who remain skeptical about the "government conspiracy" meme here this week I would like to present you with the following two headlines I just came across that were published yesterday:

Congress Seeks To Authorize & Legalize FEMA Camp Facilities

H.R. 645: To Direct The Secretary Of Homeland Security To Establish National Emergency Centers On Military Installations (Check out the Bill that was introduced in Congress last week. This is a direct link to a government website that proves that the Bill referenced in the above article was actually introduced as claimed.)

So, in just two stories (by the way, did any of you see this as a "major" story presented on any of the major networks' broadcasts yesterday? me neither) we have the federal government finally admitting publicly that these FEMA camps do exist.



This is an incredibly disturbing piece of legislation considering that the-powers-that-be have already set in motion an agenda to setup a nationwide Martial Law apparatus through U.S. Northern Command and the Department of Homeland Security.

Apparently, the fusion centers, militarized police, surveillance cameras and a domestic military command is not enough. Even though we already know that detention facilities are already in place, they now want to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency.

With the phony debt based economy getting worse and worse by the day, the possibility of civil unrest is becoming a greater threat to the establishment. One need only look at Iceland, Greece, and other European nations for what might happen in the United States next. With this in mind, it appears as if these so called national emergency centers will be used in a national emergency, but only if the national emergency requires large groups of people to be rounded up and detained.

If that isn’t the case, than why have these national emergency facilities built in military installations? One aspect of this legislation that's particularly disturbing is that it states that the facilities will be used to meet other appropriate needs as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security. This could mean anything! If the Secretary of Homeland Security thinks it's appropriate to kill large groups of people like the Nazis did in World War II Germany then it looks as if this Bill would give them the authority to use these facilities for that purpose.

More From Steve Quayle

Posted by JRed

Man, Steve Quayle is on fire these days! Better yet, the guy is a living encyclopedia of historical and biblical knowledge and I absolutely love listening to him speak especially when he gets rolling.

Here he revisits the subject of the
Nephilim/Giants from the Old Testament and their relevance to what is prophesied to return to this planet in the very near future.

This time he's talking with Bill
Deagle of The Bill Deagle Show during a broadcast from just last week on January 21, 2009.

Please pay very close attention to what he says beginning at the 4:20 mark of Part 1 of this 11-part series because I sincerely think he may be on to something here. It's not the focus of the rest of the conversation, but what he hints at does make you wonder if there's something much more sinister than we ever imagined going on right now.

I won't go into all the details just yet, but suffice it to say that he connects the prophesied return of these
Nephilim/Giants (progeny of the Fallen Angels and "daughters of men") to the genetic terrorism being conducted on unsuspecting citizens of the world courtesy of Monsanto.

For those who might not be too familiar with Monsanto, they are the corporate giant that the devil is using to alter our genetic makup by introducing "Frankenfoods" into the food chain. These are foods that the FDA has just ruled DO NOT need any special labeling to alert consumers!

I'll leave you with something the host of this show said in Part 3 just before a commercial break, "If you don't face reality you're going to be a victim of it..." He also said that "the nature of the universe is far more bizarre than most people want to believe!" I agree wholeheartedly with both statements!

I think that accurately captures the spirit of most of the things I've tried to report on here in recent months.

Sure, these aren't the types of things you'll hear on Sundays in the pews of your local church, and I'm willing to bet that for many people this may be the first time such a "crazy" concept has put out there for serious debate. I mean, I call myself a Christian and I believe these sorts of things? That's odd, right?

Wrong! Believe me, I had similar reactions when I was first confronted with such things. I can't quite explain it, but you just know when you know, you know? That is to say that I won't just write something for the sake of posting it. I'm in the business of alerting people to the truth about biblical prophecy before it's too late, not entertaining them.

I'm writing with two different kinds of people in mind. First, those who are new to prophecy and have many questions about what's going on in the world today and how it relates to what prophecy tells us. Second, those Christians who are like I was - - students of prophecy, but kept in the dark about some things that should be of grave concern to all of us in these last days.

I hope I have been responsible in that sense. I hope that you will prayerfully consider what is written here.

Steve Quayle

Posted by JRed

I'll never forget the first time I stumbled upon Steve Quayle's website about 7 years ago. It was just after 9/11, and in my search for answers about what was going on in the world around me my search somehow brought me there.

Looking back, I know that it was an act of God because this man's devotion to Jesus Christ along with his unwavering faith in the face of constant ridicule was a model of inspiration to me at precisely the time I needed to see that. I was just beginning my own relationship with the Lord and was subjected to attacks and ridicule myself from both family and friends.

Plus, it was during this same time that he was a regular featured guest on
WBEN 930 AM's The Tom Bauerle Show. In a strange twist of fate, WBEN was the local talk radio station I worked for, and it was my first full-time job. So, naturally, I listened every time he was on because I needed to know the product I was selling inside and out.

Over the years, I've come to rely on Steve to provide me with the news and information that I wouldn't normally find anywhere else. I often laughed at how often I would tell a family member or friend about something I read on his website (
or heard on his radio show), they would roll their eyes, shake their head, shrug their shoulders, and tell me I'm nuts only to recant a few days or weeks later when the same information finally came out in the mainstream news.

The irony is that lately I've been trying to warn people - - other Christians - - about the realities the Bible tells us we will soon face, and yet they don't want to hear it, they think I'm full of crap, and in the process are ignoring a part of the Bible they're uncomfortable with while standing behind all the parts they're ok with. How does that work? That's not right. Jesus Christ Himself even said that it will be a time like as in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-38). A few weeks ago, we even looked at what times were like in those days he spoke of to try and get a better idea of what we should expect. I think it's safe to say that none of us liked what we found.

Does anyone else feel like the dam is about to break? With all the things going on around the world today that have serious prophetic implications (India-Pakistan relations; Israel-Hamas fighting; Iran's nuclear ambitions; Somali pirates; Russia-Europe oil dispute; Obama's presidency; financial crisis; calls for a one-world government; etc.) is it any wonder that Mr. Quayle has been talking to anyone who will listen about the prophesied return of the Nephilim (giants who were the offspring of the Fallen Angels who mated with human women)? Does it not make sense that all of these things will happen at almost the same time (or, at the very least, one after the other)?

I mean, after all, Jesus said that the times directly preceding His return would be like labor pains. What do we know about labor pains? They increase not only in frequency, but in intensity the closer you get to the actual birth. In other words, it will be a time like no other on the face of this planet! Events will happen at such a quickening pace and at lighting speed - - overwhelmingly chaotic and stressful events - - that will shake us to our very core! They will get worse and worse and worse until God's plans (these forms of His judgement) have been fulfilled to the letter.

We also know that "men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken" (Luke 21:26) is a given, and that "unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved" (Matthew 24:22). So, what might cause this very scenario to unfold besides what we typically assume will be nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare? Surely, those things are frightening, but are they really the "the powers of heaven" that "will be shaken" as well as those things that would cause "men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world" because we've always lived with those threat, and it's hardly anything new.

If you're like me then you've questioned that concept also. I think the more likely scenario is what Steve Quayle and others like him are trying to warn us about, and at this point (in this urgent and desperate times) I personally don't care who thinks I'm "crazy" for believing it.

Regardless of what you think of Steve Quayle (or even me for that matter), I humbly ask you to please indulge me, and listen to these 10-minute audio clips from an interview that Steve Quayle recently gave to
Coast to Coast AM's George Noory in early December.

What do you think about all of this? Do you think there's any truth to what Steve Quayle is saying? Do you even believe that the Nephilim are scheduled to return to our world in these end times before Jesus Christ returns? Do you think I'm a complete "nut-job" for seriously looking at this here? Did you even listen to the above sound bytes and make it this far through this post? LOL

For whatever reason, with each passing day I've been feeling my cares with this world (my daily burdens having to do with my family, career, finances, etc.) becoming lighter and lighter when logic tells me I should be more concerned about them even as a Christian. This overwhelming sense of peace seems to be accompanied by a general feeling of
"Hey, don't worry so much about this because soon it really won't matter at all since there will be more important things to worry about!"

Now, where in the world is that coming from!?! I can only conclude that it's the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I look at the world around me and after studying prophecy for many years it just feels as if things have accelerated within the blink of an eye over these past few months that I've told people that I would be completely shocked if my generation came and went without seeing Jesus' Second Coming. I'll be 30 in mid-June.

What about you? Have you had similar feelings? What do you think about all of this? If you're still not sure I encourage you to grab your Bible and read Genesis 6.

The Great Deception

Rituals, Symbols, And Numbers

Posted by JRed

We've spent some time trying to establish for those of you who are new to the subject that the various so-called "secret societies" of the world (i.e. Illuminati; Freemasons; Skull & Bones; etc.) are anything but secretive. More importantly, that they're all functioning organizations rather than the paranoid delusions of a select few (i.e. the "conspiracy nuts").

In fact, these days it seems as though it's a sign of distinction and even honor to be associated with any group that promotes the concept of a New World Order, which is simply another way of saying one-world government (as prophesied for the end times in God's Holy Bible). Heck, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Bilderberg Group are two examples of public groups that fit this very definition.

The CFR's own organizational logo evens recalls the prophetic symbolism of Revelation 6:2 ("And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer"). Just a coincidence?


The common thread regardless of the group in question is the fact that they are all made up of the ruling class. These global elites are men and women in positions of great economic, corporate, political, and/or military power and that's precisely they way it was always intended to be.

Sue Bradley recently wrote, "An Occult Hierarchy rules the world, and directs the course of human events. The movement is led by powerful men who reject Christianity, embrace the “dark side,” and are dedicated to the formation of a world government and a world religion. Millions of people seeking “a new spirituality” follow them. They control the government, the media, the tax-exempt foundations, many corporations, and both political parties."

Would it surprise you to learn that the cabinets of all recent Presidents have been fully stocked with members of the CFR, Fed bankers, and various globalization think tanks? In fact, Obama is also expected to appoint three major NWO players as envoys to world “hot spots.”

So, does that mean that the forces behind the NWO, Freemasonry, and the New Age are demonic? Bradley gives us the answer, "The objectives of the occult masters and the very real forces they serve is overlooked by average citizens, and yet, according to sacred texts, a collaboration exists between such unregenerate social architects and fallen angels. If the electorate becomes bewitched of this truth, humans in league with demons can increase their control of the machine of municipal government through sophisticated networks of both visible and invisible principalities. This happens subconsciously or intentionally among those vulnerable to the sinister dark plan."

Invariably, the questions that always come up from people who are considering all of this with an open mind for the very first time is (1) can there really be a global conspiracy of men pulling the strings behind the scenes of the world? and (2) if so, how is that even possible if God is in complete control? Both are EXCELLENT questions and ones I've asked myself just a few weeks ago.

I would recommend you spend some time reading yesterday's column "A Warning From Hosea" because it should help to lay the foundation for today's study as well as address any common misconceptions.

Obviously, NOTHING happens here on Earth unless God ordains it. His will is perfect, and while "A man's heart devises his way: but the LORD directs his steps" (Proverbs 16:9). So, what it comes down to is this - - there are two distinct sides to the very real spiritual war that is going on around us on a daily basis.

Good and evil. We worship the true God Yahweh and His only Son Jesus Christ (the good God), and those who are in positions of great power and who practice the occult worship Satan (their evil god). Whether they believe their god is "evil" or not is immaterial. What matters is that we know the truth, and we also know what God's Word tells us about these end times.

We need to realize that there's a second-by-second war being fought on the battlefields for our mind, heart, and soul. That's what this is ultimately all about.


Still not convinced? There are a lot of claims on the Internet that President Barack H. Obama is a 32nd degree Prince Hall Mason. One of the sources is actually a posting on BarackObama.com.
Plus, just last week a story appeared courtesy of The Washington Times discussing Obama’s inauguration and the Masonic rituals that live on in Washington, D.C

The key to all of this is to first understand that occult symbolism is their language, and it functions as a power tool of socialization and recognition. Plus, they believe that such symbolism holds the key to unlocking spiritual forces of power for them to wield here on Earth.

Their vehicle is Astrology (Satan's counterfeit of God-given Astronomy and the truths he embedded in His creation for us to understand), and heir language is all about RITUALS, SYMBOLS, and NUMBERS, which is done in honor and worship of ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. Once you understand that language you can predict where it will go from here - - a universal, "we are one," prophesied one-world government in the form of a New World Order.

Personally, I think we should consider that there are ancient and historical archetypes - - shared by multiple cultures and civilizations - - and we should ask ourselves how such things could have come into existence without provocation. They couldn't have! Furthermore, we need to then ask ourselves if it's perhaps our own modern day prejudices that have allowed us to "forget" the truths of our ancient past.

Thus, what if these privileged elites of the global ruling class who are said to be "illuminated" with knowledge of the truth are the ones who have not allowed themselves to forget the truths of our ancient past? What if they know exactly what's coming upon this planet spiritually, and they believe that by attempting to orchestrate rituals in conjunction with sacred symbols and numbers they are somehow not only unleashing a supernatural power, but also setting themselves up to be in a privileged position when "the gods" return again?

Again, I'm always amazed by those sincere Christians (and sincere students of prophecy) who laugh off the mere suggestion of our government - - any government for that matter - - being involved in such conspiracies. Isn't that precisely what we're told will happen in the last days?

Satan and his army are not going to simply show up one day waving a flag and shouting through a megaphone, "Hey everyone! The Antichrist and his one-world everything is finally here! Now, we're going to destroy you all!" It's just not going to work that way.

Remember that occult symbolism is their language, and it functions as a power tool of socialization and recognition. Hopefully, by now, we've all come to understand that their language is all about RITUALS, SYMBOLS, and NUMBERS in honor and worship of ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses, and once you understand that language you can predict where it will go from here - - a universal, "we are one," prophesied one-world government in the form of a New World Order.

With that in mind, we need to be mindful of the possibility that some in these positions of power - - sometimes those we trust - - may be serving a different god than you and I. If that's the case, then why is it so hard to believe that a conspiracy is possible? After all, perhaps the Lord would allow them to succeed in their nefarious plans every once in awhile just because it advances His agenda for the world in these last days.


Precisely my point. May God grant you wisdom and discernment to spot the lies and recognize the fact from the fiction.

Be mindful of the numerous rituals, symbols, and numbers. No, not in pursuit of studying the occult, but a cursory knowledge that will help you to spot whenever these events occur in the real world that contain special significance.

We need to constantly be on guard and defend ourselves and our loved ones from the evil and deception that has seeped into our world because it's only going to get worse.

A Warning From Hosea

Posted by JRed

Hosea 4:6 - - "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge"

Earlier today, I referenced an author by the name of
Russ Dizdar and a new book he has coming out. I thought I would also take a moment to provide a little background info on this man and what he talks about often during his ministry's podcasts.

If you would've asked me just a few short years ago if I believed in "secret societies" and "government conspiracies" I would've laughed loudly in your face. It all just didn't make much sense to me, and to give man credit for all the things (both "good" and "bad") that occurred in this world seemed to rob God of all the glory that is due to Him. That didn't seem right to me. The problem was that I wasn't looking at the issue the right way.

Years have passed since then, and as I've grown in my faith I've also obtained more insight and knowledge about the existing political machine, which is necessary for the coming one-world government to be used by the Antichrist during his rise to power, and how God might allow such things to happen to fulfill a greater good. Needless to say, I'm not laughing anymore.

We know the source of most, if not all our woes, is Satan and the demonic realm. We also know that he's the "Father of Lies" who deals exclusively with deception. What I'm beginning to suspect is that all the so-called "secret societies" (which is a misnomer because they're all an established, known fact;
just look at our Founding Fathers as well as the art and architecture found not only in Washington D.C., but on the dollar bill itself), and all of those who have been given much power in this world, serve a different master than you and I, as they have sworn an allegiance to another rather than the one, true, living God we know personally as Yahweh.


We also know that Satan cannot do anything to us in this world without God's sovereign permission. Thus, despite their nefarious plans, I guess in a sense these groups and individuals do serve a vital purpose in helping to fulfill God's ultimate plan for humanity.

I've never been one to give much thought to "conspiracy theories" or to those who claim our government is out to get us. Sure, it's all very entertaining stuff, but I always thought you'd have to be off your rocker to believe such garbage.

Besides, I know several respectable, brave men and women who work (or have worked) for the government and military who love this country more than I do (and that's saying a lot!), and they'd never be a part of any movement to inflict harm on the very people they've sworn to serve and protect.

At the same time, the more I study end times prophecy and specifically consider the role of national and international politics in the grand scheme of things, the more it becomes quite clear that there's at least a faction (or two or three) of the federal government and military that does, in fact, desire to cause chaos and inflict harm.

Why? Again, because they serve a different master and have their own agenda and end game in mind. This is what I believe to be at the root of any perceived and/or real conspiracy that might exist in the world today.

The truly sad part, is that we have allowed ourselves to become so numb to the truth that we accept anything that's presented to us as "fact" as the undeniable truth without ever using our God-given power of reason to assess the information for ourselves in order to verify it. We've documented how mass media is used to control a population. This includes not only the mainstream media news outlets (biased beyond belief), but also Hollywood which is increasingly succumbing to the influence of the federal government, which, in turn, is using Hollywood to serve its own interests
as evidenced by this report from USA Today from back in 2005.

Connecting the dots through roughly 5,000 years of revisionist human history, which spans from the time of the pharaohs, all the way up to
the present day dynasties that are involved in creating their "New World Order" (a cover phrase for the prophesied one-world government), it becomes quite clear who they serve (or believe they are serving) since all of it points to a quest to perfect the enslavement of mankind - - God's ultimate and most cherished creation.

From pirates, to terrorists, to bankers, to the ruling elite globalists who think they run the world, its finances, and the media (and cover both sides of nearly every conflict or war) the world may make a little more sense after watching and listening to this series of videos and interviews I stumbled upon the other day. It's an encyclopedia of historical information that no student of eschatology can afford to be without especially now that the cries for "global governance" is growing.

The Complete Idiot's Guide To The New World Order (NWO)
(NOTE: Interesting to listen to both Eisenhower and Kennedy acknowledge the existence of, and speak publicly about such secret societies and their agenda in the very beginning of this video)



Secret Societies / A Dark, Elite Brotherhood - Russ Dizdar (AUDIO)
If there are 4-5 million cases of satanic ritual abuse where the unsaved soul has been split, programmed, demonized, and trained; if there are another 5 million intact Satanic "chosen ones" walking the planet then all of that leaves us with some serious questions: Where did they come from? Who created them? For what reasons?

Dark Spirits And The Military - Russ Dizdar (AUDIO)
There is a vast infiltration of U.S. military by the Satanic agenda. The "ideas" for new weapons, mind control, super soldiers, and a shadow occult military complex are used to usher the world into chaos, and then the New World Order (NWO) or one-world government. Can you do anything about it? Yes!

So, what do you think? Does any of this make sense? Do you agree with the assertions and conclusions? What are your thoughts on all of this?

This may be only one attempt to explain what's going on in the world today as well as what's about to unfold in the very near future, but it is all based in the unshakable Word of God. If you want the full truth or to get the answers for yourself just go to your nearest bookstore and buy a copy of the Holy Bible because all the answers to life's biggest questions (including those that explain what in the world is happening all around us these days) can be found in that incredible book.


In closing, Ben Fairhall captures the general sentiment here when he wrote a powerful commentary recently that stated the following:

"Most of the time, I find, the media does a very workmanlike job of disguising its real agenda; it tries hard - - and usually succeeds - - in keeping its thorough disgust for its audience, for the higher faculties of humanity, safely beneath the radar. It succeeds in very large part because people still consume it, growing hour-by-hour steadily more stupid, more divorced from a recognition of its thorough insanity. This means that the threshold of the subliminal, the line dividing the seen from the unseen, rises just as steadily as its audience's capacity for independent thought sinks into the marsh. Fifty years of television has demonstrated beyond any doubt that John Logie Baird's idiot box is an evil of far greater refinement than any indulgence sanctioned by Hitler, Stalin...even Ehud Olmert or Ariel Sharon. A plague of the mind far more corrosive than any apocalyptic gee-gee saddled up by Freud or Alfred Kinsey; a real soul-eater that can only be stopped one sledgehammer at a time. But at least they try to disguise it, not having attained the pinnacles of arrogance exhibited by their masters, the Synagogue of Satan...whose pact with the Lord of the Flies demands they disguise nothing."

Wow! How's that for a stinging rebuke of the diet of lies we're being fed on a regular basis? Fortunately, Fairhall doesn't end there. He continues with:


"The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. And we can't, Mr. Hoover spoke the truth. Even I can't, a conspiraloon, whose shelves sag under the combined weight of the neuroses of every mendacious mystic, shambolic shaman and goggle-eyed, paunch-bellied theorist this side of Sedona. Such is the invisibility of its cunning, I still struggle (sometimes) to conceive of that box, that sliver of screen, that tube of mutilation, as anything other than a friend. A back-slapping, co-dependent kind of friend, the type who'll stand you a beer and overlook the fact that it's still your round. (It's always your round.) A doe-eyed, silver-tongued friend for all seasons, who always manages to say just the right thing; dazzling, but still not too conspicuous. Such is the insidiousness with which it injects its false memory, to attack television is almost as verboten as attacking Mother herself, the primary caregiver. A hideous carbuncle on the face of an old friend. Courage, an unshakable belief in reality and a genuine imaginative leap is required - - most the time - - to perceive, to actually know, that hardwired into every slinky coil of CRT is a genetic plan to shut you down; whose creed is spiritual death; a seamless simulacrum of fake smiles, fake tits, fake news. Fake people. It's all lies; you know this to be true, but the disconnect of doublethink, the dissonance of doubting the Hyper-Real has pushed a splinter in your mind, and through this trauma the transmission still penetrates. You doubt yourself now, when you should be doubting Them."

Pretty astute, huh? Personally, I found his sermon to be timely, appropriate, and drenched with some hard-hitting truths. Still, there's more from him!


"Until, that is, something happens to lance the chimerical matrix, something capable of breaking the trance. And then they make it easy for you, breaking cover like so many demented Wizards of Oz, pulling levers and belching smoke; a misery of doctors converging on the scene to staunch the flow, repair the wound, to ferry you back to safety. At moments like that, reality - - the conspiracy - - hovers into sight so openly they do what they always do when epiphanies threaten, when the unvetted sighs too deeply in its sleep. They invent a disease...The Problem is You...The Empire Never Ended and the Truman Syndrome is their answer to the (expletive) Stockholm syndrome you've actually escaped."

So, there it is.

The majority of Americans have been so dumbed down by the media, the schools, and the government that they’ve lost the ability to see past the charade of lies and propaganda, which passes for "news," and have completely failed to understand that our entire world is in a desperate battle for resources, of all kinds, which only a Total Global War is going to decide who wins and who losses.

Even worse for most of them is that they lack any kind of preparation, even at the most basic level, and have no idea at all that they are going to be starving, jobless, homeless, and probably herded into the many giant concentration camps that have been built over the past 10 years. As pathetic as it is to think about, most Americans today think that lowering their food costs mean ordering from the dollar menu at some fast food restaurant and planning for survival means buying extra cans of vegetables.

As each day goes by, I truly feel sorry for most of them, but I'm also angry at their sheer stupidity and arrogance. In the end I know this, by our efforts and those of others like us, the one thing none of them will ever be able to say is “I wasn’t warned.”

Once again, the truly sad part, is that we have allowed ourselves to become so numb to the truth that we accept anything that's presented to us as "fact" as the "undeniable truth" without ever using our God-given power of reason to assess the information for ourselves in order to verify it. It's gotten so bad that even when you come up with real, hard evidence and present it to skeptics so that they can see it and hold it in their own hands for themselves they still don't want to believe any of it! Deception truly rules the day in these end times! We the sheeple.


Hopefully, you took some time to watch at least some of the videos and/or listen to some of those audio clips included above because they generate many logical and thought-provoking questions that have never been answered. The fact that we are left with these very questions in and of themselves is proof positive that something much more sinister than we'd like to believe has been going on (is going on) right under our noses, and that we are content with being lied to on a regular basis.

So, what can we do with this new knowledge? Well, we can start by testing everything that is presented to us as "truth" for ourselves. We need to stop being lazy, and start getting serious. Jesus Christ Himself warned us about this time. He said that deception would rule the day, and that if we're not careful we'd allow ourselves to be seduced by these deceiving spirits. God also warned us that, "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6).

Please understand that I'm not saying that everyone who works for the government or the military let alone every corporate CEO is evil and out to get you. However, I'm always amazed by those sincere Christians (and sincere students of prophecy) who laugh off the mere suggestion of our government being involved in such acts.

Satan and his army are not going to simply show up one day waving a flag and shouting through a megaphone, "Hey everyone! The Antichrist and his one-world everything is finally here! Now, we're going to destroy you all!" It's just not going to work that way.

Occult symbolism is their language, and it functions as a power tool of socialization and recognition. Hopefully, by now, we've all come to understand that their language is all about RITUALS, SYMBOLS, and NUMBERS, and once you understand that language you can predict where it will go from here - - a universal, "we are one," prophesied one-world government in the form of a New World Order.

With that in mind, we need to be mindful of the possibility that some in these positions of power - - sometimes those we trust - - may be serving a different god than you and I. If that's the case, then is it so hard to believe that any of this is possible?

Precisely my point. May God grant you wisdom and discernment to spot the lies and to recognize the fact from the fiction. Don't be destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Listen to a warning from Hosea.
