Brave New World

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , , , , , | Posted on Saturday, July 31, 2010


We spend a lot of time here on Look Up Fellowship highlighting the Arts and Pop Culture’s effect on the masses as it pertains to "Predictive Programming", or conditioning-the-masses.

The Corbett Report released a new video called "Film, Literature, And The New World Order" recently that is worth mentioning.

The film explores Aldous Huxley's classic work of Science-Fiction,
Brave New World. Brave New World is a dystopic vision of a nightmare future in which worker drones are engineered from birth to perform slave labor for a world dictatorship. Even more horrific, the workers have even been engineered to love their servitude. Most frightening of all, Huxley's own family background and experience might show that Brave New World is not so completely fictional as we would like to believe. Just wait until you hear this…

Brave New World - Film, Lit, And The NWO

I’d say the global elites, the prophesied "kings of the earth", are following Huxley’s
Brave New World as though it were a blueprint to advance their sinister schemes.

By the way, did you catch that other point toward the end of the video? Public Relations is the new term for propaganda. Wow. I rest my case.

Reminds me of what another famous author once wrote. George Orwell, author of another New World Order blueprint,
1984, once penned the words...

"IN A TIME OF UNIVERSAL DECEIT, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

So true.

It's tough to refute our claims of a Satanically inspired "conspiracy" when we have these people in their own words telling us what they believe and what they'd like to do to us if given the chance.

Right on cue, we read this in the news yesterday...

FDA OKs First Embryonic Stem Cell Research Trial On Humans

What the headline doesn't give away is that this trial was awarded to a cloning company! Yep, it's a brave new world indeed.

Lord, come quickly.


And Now We Are Two...Thank You!

A quick announcement born out of genuine gratitude.

This past week we celebrated Look Up Fellowship's 2-year "Blogiversary" without much fanfare although a VERY HUMBLE THANK YOU is in order from me to all of you.

I've heard that "blog years" are much longer than regular years -- longer even than "dog years" too! And, as the years go by, blogs tend to evolve in unexpected ways.

I went back and looked at some of those early posts from Week #1. Here are the first three commentaries I ever wrote for this site (after writing a few posts that set the proper foundation first) that were originally posted from 7/28/2008 to 8/8/2008...

To The Atheist, Agnostic, And The Skeptic...

The All-Seeing Eye

Mega Church, Mega Nonsense

If you would've told me that I will meet so many wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ during this time, or that the Holy Spirit would teach me so much along the way, or that I'd still be publishing posts -- DAILY -- 2 years from the time I started I never would've believed you. Plus, I probably would've scolded you for merely suggesting that any of this is about me when all the glory, honor, and praise belongs to our Heavenly Father and to Him alone.

I spent some time thinking about what I would classify as being some of the "most popular" articles given their prophetic importance. I didn't just gauge popularity by the number of comments, but by the content itself. I also thought about my favorite research studies too. Here's what I came up with by category/group...

Amazing Grace Despite My Amnesia

I should quickly mention that during the course of perusing through the LUF Archives I noticed that some posts seemed to be "scrubbed" while others DID NOT show up in any Search Engines despite the use of an exact phrase in quotes. Hmmm...

Two years, a total of 1,485 posts, and 763,000+ visitors later? Are you kidding me!?! Thank you Lord, and thank YOU too. I can only pray that the good Lord is not done with me or this humble online ministry (if it's even worthy to be called such).

By the way in which He's been moving in my life in a BIG AND UNEXPECTED WAY the past few months (and I don't just mean My Alabaster Box, Right Now Radio, Kingdom Bound Radio, and/or I Want To Believe Radio) I am certain He's not done with me. Stay tuned...

Even if He one day tells me to say goodbye to LUF (and everything else) I will gladly do so. Besides, this was never "my blog", but always His blog and His alone.

It's funny because my original intention of posting "a dozen items in one day and then nothing for 2 weeks thereafter" has changed to the extent that I find myself apologizing for taking a few days off for the holidays, or when one of my kids is sick. HA!

All kidding aside, it's been amazing to watch the Lord make LUF what it has become today. If the emails are any indication, then I know that He has used what I've sometimes called "a stupid little blog" to draw His chosen ones to Him.

Thus, as always, the Word of God is proven to be true once more...

1 Corinthians 1:27 (KJV) But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Thank you to everyone who has ever visited this site, who continues to visit, who sends me news info, who corresponds with me regularly, and who prays for me.

1 Corinthians 3:7 (KJV) So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

I will continue to plant the seeds (despite the fact that I am nothing) for as long as the Lord wants me to, and I pray that you will stay with me on this ride.

Luke 21:28 (KJV) And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.

Keep looking up! MARANATHA!!!


Right Now Radio - July 30th, 2010

Who get's sick in the Summer!?! Apparently, me.

Nothing serious. My little boy Luke had a stomach virus outta nowhere the past couple of days. He's fine, but now it's my turn to deal with the bug.

To avoid the possibility of postponing another Right Now Radio broadcast tonight (this time due to my health if my symptoms got worse), I decided to go LIVE with the program earlier today -- a full 8.5 hours earlier than normal!

My sincere apologies to those who were looking forward to listening LIVE as well as to anyone who planned to call in tonight (although RNR doesn't typically get many calls -- if any -- so I thought such a move this afternoon was a safe bet)...

Hard Hitting -- Notable Quotable

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on Friday, July 30, 2010


I love this...

“Paul does not say, [in Philippians 2:12--Ed.] ‘Work out something that will tell for your salvation’; he says, ‘Work out in the expression of your life the salvation God has worked in.’ If we think for a moment we shall soon know how much we are saved—What does our tongue say? what kind of things do our ears like to listen to? what kind of bodily associates do we like to be with? These things will always tell not only other people but ourselves what kind of salvation God has worked in. In regeneration God works us into relation with Himself that by our bodily expression we may prove Whose we are.

If you are trying to be a Christian it is a sure sign you are not one. Fancy trying to be the daughter of your mother! you cannot help being her daughter. But try and be the daughter of someone else’s mother! Unless God has worked in us we shall hinder Him all the time by trying to be His children; we cannot, we have to be born from above by the will of God first, be regenerated; then our working is not working to help God, it is working to let God express through us what He has done in us so that we may prove we are the children of our Father in heaven (see Matthew 5:43-48).

So many of us put prayer and work and consecration in place of the working of God; we make ourselves the workers. God is the Worker, we work out what He works in. Spirituality is what God is after, not religiosity. The great snare in religion without genuine spirituality is that people ape being good when they are absolutely mean [not 'mean' as in 'angry, &c.' But rather, 'mean' as in 'useless to God'--Ed.]. There is no value whatever in religious externals, the only thing that is of value is spiritual reality, and this is spiritual reality—that I allow God to work in me to will and to do of His good pleasure, and then work out what He has worked in, being carefully careless about everything saving my relationship to God.”

Oswald Chambers / 1874-1917

You read it once. Now, please go back and read it again.

I've been thinking about all the truth contained in these 3 paragraphs ever since.

Praise God for enlightening me!


Genuine Repentance -- Notable Quotable

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on Wednesday, July 28, 2010


On genuine repentance and the importance of a heart that exhibits a godly sorrow rather than one that merely exhibits a worldly sorrow...

Many make a mistake about salvation; they mistake the meaning of the term, and to them salvation means being delivered from going down to the pit of hell. Now, the right meaning of salvation is purification from evil…

When a man is tied up to be flogged for a deed of brutal violence, and his back is bared for the lash, depend upon it—he repents of what he did; that is to say, he repents that he has to suffer for it, but that is all, and a sorry all too.

He has no sorrow for the agony he has inflicted on the innocent victim, no regret for maiming him for life. What is the value of such repentance?

Charles Spurgeon


Echoes Of 9/11? Signaling An Attack? War?

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Posted on Tuesday, July 27, 2010


NOTE: I will be shining a light on one man in in particular later on in this report NOT because he's Jewish, but because of his past connections to 9/11, and because he came up in the news recently in addition to some similar news items that resonate with some of the things we saw reported just prior to 9/11. Now, before anyone comes after me attempting to charge me with being "anti-Israel" or an "anti-Semite" I suggest you take a moment, take a deep breath, and read all the evidence shared here first. Such a charge would be patently false and unsubstantiated after even a brief look at this forums Archives over the past 2 years. As a Christian, particularly one who studies eschatology, I am a fervent supporter of Israel. I recognize the CENTRAL ROLE they play in God's description of end times events. However, much like how there are "bad" factions of the whole in any group (like within our own government and military), I firmly believe there exists a "faction" within the political halls of power in Israel who have extended their reach worldwide. The man you will read about here MAY BE/SEEMS TO BE one of them. Even so, "one bad apple does not poison the entire apple cart", right? In the final analysis, this is just another study consistent with the commands given to us in the Bible to stand for truth and justice and to expose the evil deeds of darkness wherever we believe we find them. Please join me in the pursuit of the truth today.

God's Word as recorded for us in the Holy Bible is crystal clear...

Matthew 10:16 (KJV) Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Ephesians 5:11 (KJV) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

If those commands and these types of studies make you uncomfortable, then you might want to stop reading right now and come back tomorrow for new content.

Are we about to see the beginning of the end? By that, I mean the beginning of the prophesied Psalm 83 War/Gog-Magog Attack and resulting Tribulation (amongst other things worldwide)?

I think the answer is undeniably YES at this point. I mean, whether it's a straight-forward, objective analysis of the news like this entry will be, or subjective studies of the symbolism we're seeing (like the one performed in the previous post, which connects to this one given the Gog-Magog verses that came up there!), all signs are pointing to these ancient prophecies being fulfilled at any moment.

We've been following the trail of bread crumbs for months now...

April: Are We About To See The Fulfillment Of The Gog Magog War? (Part 1)

April: Are We About To See The Fulfillment Of The Gog Magog War? (Part 2)

May: 'Pakistani Taliban' Back In The News (Why It's Important)

June: 'False Flag' Narrative Almost Complete

June: Is A False Flag Event Imminent?

Of course, none of it was due to any great insight or wisdom on my part, but I believe due entirely to the leading and promptings of the Holy Spirit who wanted us to be mindful of such things.

Well, I'm sure many of you saw the image and main headline on The Drudge Report today...

More War? Ahmadinejad Says Expects U.S. To Attack MidEast Soon

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran expects the United States to launch a military strike on "at least two countries" in the Middle East in the next three months, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told state-run Press TV.

In an interview recorded on Monday, Ahmadinejad did not specify whether he thought Iran itself would be attacked nor did he say what intelligence led him to expect such a move.

The United States and Israel have refused to rule out military action against Iran's nuclear program which they fear could lead to it making a bomb, something Iran denies.

"They have decided to attack at least two countries in the region in the next three months," Ahmadinejad said in excerpts broadcast on the rolling news channel on Tuesday.

Israel, which refuses to confirm or deny the existence of its own nuclear arsenal, has a history of pre-emptive strikes against suspected nuclear targets. In 1981 it destroyed Iraq's only nuclear reactor and in 2007 bombed a suspect site in Syria.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the prospect of a nuclear armed Iran "the ultimate terrorist threat." His deputy, Moshe Yaalon, has said Israel had improved military capability which could be used against foes in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria or Iran.

Ahmadinejad said Iran had "very precise information that the Americans have hatched a plot, according to which they to wage a psychological war against Iran."

He also criticized the U.S.-led drive for international sanctions to pressure Tehran over the nuclear issue.

Yet, I noticed something else today that instantly caught my eye and that definitely deserves a mention here especially following that news out of the Middle East. Did you see this reported?

Defense Department Can't Account For $8.7 Billion

BAGHDAD – The U.S. Defense Department is unable to properly account for over 95 percent of $9.1 billion in Iraqi oil money tapped by the U.S. for rebuilding the war ravaged nation, according to an audit released Tuesday.

The report by the U.S. Special Investigator for Iraq Reconstruction offers a compelling look at continued laxness in how such funds were being spent in a country where people complain basic services like electricity and clean water are sharply lacking seven years after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

The audit found that shoddy record keeping by the Defense Department left the Pentagon unable to fully account for $8.7 billion it withdrew between 2004 and 2007 from a special fund set up by the U.N. Security Council. Of that amount, Pentagon "could not provide documentation to substantiate how it spent $2.6 billion."

The funds are separate from the $53 billion allocated by Congress for rebuilding Iraq.

Why is that POTENTIALLY important news?

Do you know who Dov Zakheim is? Surprisingly (then again, maybe not), he was also in the news recently. On July 16th, 2010, it was reported that Dov Zakheim retired from Booz Allen Hamilton. To be more specific, he will be retiring in a few days.

News about Zakheim's retirement hasn't been confirmed yet. In fact, such a story comes from someone claiming to have received info about such from a reader in an email that contained Mr. Zakheim's retirement announcement above the original invitation from his Secretary/EA (Executive Assistant). Apparently, the retirement is effective later this week on July 31st, 2010.

I decided to run with this story despite it being unconfirmed only because of what history tells us; history just prior to 9/11. In other words, news about an "impending retirement" (let alone the mere fact that this guy was in the news recently) MIGHT help to clarify our understanding of the situation, or the real story (if there is one beyond what we already know from the mainstream news today).

A guy's retiring. So what, right? Not so fast. Some have compiled evidence to suggest that Zakheim was the "Money Master" and "Mastermind" of the September 11, 2001 "False Flag" attacks!

For those of you who don't know who Dov Zakheim is, let me quickly refresh your memory. The ordained Rabbi served as Comptroller of the Pentagon from May 4th, 2001, to March 10th, 2004, when he resigned to go to Booz Allen Hamilton, a leading consulting firm.

Some interesting FACTS about the guy that need to be included here for what will become obvious reasons include (read these and recall what we looked at last week about the POTENTIAL CONNECTION between the current Gulf Crisis and 9/11)...

1. In 2001, Dov was CEO of SPS International, part of System Planning Corporation, a defense contractor majoring in electronic warfare technologies, including remote-controlled aircraft systems, and the notorious Flight Termination System (FTS) that could hijack even a hijacked plan and land or crash it wherever (World Trade Center Towers!?!).

2. Perhaps not coincidentally in May 2001, when Dov served at the Pentagon, it was an SPS (his firm's) subsidiary, Tridata Corporation, that oversaw the investigation of the first "terrorist" attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. This would have given them intimate knowledge of the security systems and structural blueprints of the World Trade Center. From the 1990s through 2001, WTC Security was handled by Securacom, a Kuwait-American firm, on whose board Marvin Bush, the President's brother, sat. After 9/11, Securacom was let go, changed its name to Stratosec, and was delisted from the Stock Exchange in 2002.

3. Mr. Zakheim is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and in 2000 a co-author of the Project For The New American Century's position paper, "Rebuilding America's Defenses", advocating the necessity for a Pearl-Harbor-like incident (9/11!?!) to mobilize the country into war with its enemies, mostly Middle Eastern Muslim nations.

4. Mr. Zakheim's grandfather was born in 1870, Julius Zakheim (Zhabinka), in the Ukraine, a Russian Rabbi who married a relative of Karl Marx. He was a Menshevik/Bolshevik and played a leading role in the 1905 turmoil that paved the way for the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

As eyebrow raising as all of that is, it pales in comparison to this bit of news. As they say, "follow the trail of money..."

His days before, during, and after his Pentagon stint have been fully documented by some, and during those times a total of $3.2 trillion went missing from the Pentagon coffers! Hmmm...Just like today's story about $8.7 billion being unaccounted for by the Defense Department? But wait, you'll see why today's news COULD BE SOMETHING TO WATCH closely in the days and weeks ahead because I haven't shared the most suspicious "missing money" fact yet.

In a July 2006 article for Online Journal -- Following Dov Zakheim And Pentagon Trillions To 9-11 And Israel -- (which you should all read in full) some stunning evidence was presented.

The author of that column (who also reported on Zakheim's retirement in the story linked above) wrote the following that should be cause for concern in light of what history tells us...

"...the second loss of $2.3 trillion was announced on September 10, 2001, by Donald Rumsfeld and the story was buried the next day under the rubble of 9/11."

Isn't it at least PLAUSIBLE to be suspicious about today's news and it's juxtaposition with other "drumbeats-of-war" type news reported at the same time? You bet it is.

Now, before anyone comes after me attempting to charge me with being "anti-Israel" or an "anti-Semite" I suggest you take a moment, take a deep breath, and read all the evidence shared here first. As a Christian, particularly one who studies eschatology, I am a fervent supporter of Israel. However, much like how there are "bad" factions of the whole in any group, I firmly believe there exists a "faction" within the political halls of power in Israel who have extended their reach worldwide. Better yet, just go back to the beginning of this piece and read the introductory note I included there.

Complicating matters (and adding further intrigue here) is the news reported on July 22nd, 2010 from Defense News that also involves A TON OF MONEY, the Department of Defense, the Pentagon, and even Dov Zakheim! Check this out...

Business Board: Close U.S. JFCOM, Freeze Hiring

An influential Pentagon advisory board is poised to recommend Defense Secretary Robert Gates close contractor-heavy U.S. Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) and rid his office and the Joint Staff of redundant functions, moves that could save billions of dollars.

As part of work ordered by Gates under his war on overhead and inefficiencies, a Defense Business Board study group is urging him to also shutter its Networks and Information Integration directorate. NII, as it's known in the defense community, resides within the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).

The Defense Business Board task force also is recommending Gates initiate a hiring freeze for OSD, all Joint Staff directorates and all combatant commands.

Those recommendations are part of a set of preliminary recommendations the board unanimously approved July 22. The board expects to submit these initial findings to Gates soon in an informational memo, followed in October by a broader set of longer-term cost-cutting proposals.

The board also will advise Gates to seek to "eliminate organizational duplication and overlap" across the department. A fourth proposal will advise an immediately effective directive to "seriously curtail all indirect spending" on things like "duty station moves, travel [and] conferences," states the preliminary DBB report. This recommendation also calls for Gates to modify the so-called "use it or lose it policy" on such funds, "which only promotes wastes," the report states.

The JFCOM and NII closures are part of a broader recommendation that will go to the secretary soon to shrink the military's combatant commands, which the board has concluded are swollen with thousands of expensive contractors - many in redundant positions.

Gates asked the board to propose ways the department can slash $101 billion over five years from overhead and unneeded costs. Gates wants to transfer those savings to hardware programs he feels are needed to combat future threats.

With war funding included, U.S. military spending for fiscal 2010 will approach $661 billion. The DBB study group estimates "at least $200 billion - $ 1 trillion across the [future years defense plan] - is overhead." If the Defense Department's overhead was its own nation, it would rank 49th globally in total gross domestic product - just behind Singapore and Portugal, and just ahead of Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Dov Zakheim, a former Pentagon comptroller and now a Booz Allen Hamilton executive, applauded the secretary for being "brave enough" to seek overhead and other cost reductions. Gates realizes that he must make changes, even with two hot wars raging, "because if we don't, we'll shoot ourselves in the foot," Zakheim said.

Now, call me a "conspiracy theorist", call me a "fear mongerer", call me whatever you like! I don't write about these things out of fear (or because I'm trying to create fear and panic amongst the Body of Christ. Quite the contrary!

I write about these Satanic schemes of the Luciferians who are loyal to our common enemy because we're called to expose them, but also to try and help others learn how to think critically again (and use their God-given brains, common sense, and logic) by examining various news items rather than relying on one source for all their news and information.

Besides, we have the one source for all of our truth -- our Heavenly Father and what His Word says about these days -- that helps give us the proper perspective when analyzing things like this.

In addition, it's not about "being right" here either. Gosh, it's not even about me or Look Up Fellowship! It's about us, and about the T-R-U-T-H, and about following the commands given to us in Scripture, and about what God's Word tells us about the last days, and about how we need Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Savior before it's too late. That's what this is about. It's not a popularity contest, but about preaching the truth of the Gospel.

By the way, ever hear of "Occam's Razor" and its application to knowing the truth? It's the principle that "entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity". The popular interpretation of this principle is that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

Ladies and Gentleman, whether or not you agree in whole or in part with these findings, here is an eye-opening article originally from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by Milan Simonich...

Army Unit Piecing Together Accounts Of Pentagon Attack

"One Army office in the Pentagon lost 34 of its 65 employees in the attack. Most of those killed in the office, called Resource Services Washington, were civilian accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts. They were at their desks when American Airlines Flight 77 struck."

First, recall the basic premise of today's commentary.

Now, using common sense (and Occam's Razor), isn't it more than ironic that Accountants, Bookkeepers, and Budgets Analysts -- the very people who could pick up the financial frauds IF we're on to something here -- were targeted and struck? I'm just asking.

Are these puzzle pieces with prophetic implications, or just vain speculations? Is this an echo of 9/11? Are The-Powers-That-Be (those nefarious "kings of the earth") conspiring and signaling an attack? War?

If nothing else, just put this on your "spiritual radar" as one more thing to keep your spiritual eyes on given where we believe we are on God's prophetic timeline.

What do we know?

Matthew 24:6 (KJV) And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Yep, I'd say these stories are a fulfillment of that prophecy, wouldn't you?

Keep looking up! MARANATHA!!!


Lufthansa Plane Crash, Cranes, Co-Redemptrix?

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , , , , , , | Posted on Tuesday, July 27, 2010


I shouldn't be shocked when this happens, but this is just absurd.

I'm sure you caught the news about the Lufthansa Cargo Plane crash today...

Lufthansa MD-11 Freighter Crashes In Riyadh, Injuring Two

A Lufthansa MD-11 cargo plane
caught fire and split in half while landing Tuesday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, injuring the German pilot and co-pilot, according to an Associated Press report.

How in the world does any plane catch fire and split in two while landing!?! What could cause the plane to catch fire and burn that quickly causing that kind of damage? Could a "normal" fire that breaks out in the cargo bay really cause a plane to split in half? How could a precise kind of damage occur, and is there any precedent for this sort of thing?

Take a look at this photo of the plane...

Folks, "caught fire and split in half while landing" is their wording -- not mine. Has such an incident ever happened before? I could be wrong, but I don't seem to recall any.

Yes, I know they're in Saudi Arabia and this could be a bomb from a terrorist attack, but look at the above image again. Does that look like damage from a traditional explosive device to you? Me neither. Plus, the photographic evidence seems "odd" and inconsistent with a typical bomb.

Then again, I could be completely mistaken here. I mean, one reader commented on one news article I saw online that it could be "a cargo hold fire perhaps", but that they couldn't know for sure without seeing the other side of the aircraft. It's possible. I mean, I also read that the plane was carrying about 90 tons of "unspecified" cargo. It took civil defense workers about 3 hours to contain the fire too.

Hey, how long did it take them to put out the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig fire? I'm just asking. But don't mind me because we already have the "official story", which is that the Pilot reported a fire in the cargo bay as he approached the airport and runway. That happens a lot.

Look, I don't care how "crazy" it makes me sound at this point (I've been called worse in my life! HA), but I'm going to admit that when I saw this story, read the description about what happened, saw the images, and then heard the mainstream media's response to the bizarre circumstances of this plan crash today (particularly the on-air report by Fox News) I immediately thought of some of our recent speculations here.

What have we touched upon quite extensively lately as POSSIBLE SCENARIOS given what we already know to be fact, and given we've been told "they" would attempt to do over the years?

1. Space-Based Weapons are responsible for recent tragedies

2. So-called "bad Aliens/UFOs" are responsible for recent tragedies

Yeah, I know how it sounds, but we need to start thinking about the likelihood that these are the kinds of "realities" that Satan and his minions will one day try to force upon us as "truth" to try and deceive millions worldwide.

Christians can't bury their head in the sand on these issues any longer. Don't laugh either! Did you know that there's a famous "UFO" sighting that's widely known involving a Lufthansa Pilot? Take a look and a listen...

Lufthansa Pilot UFO Sighting

In addition, would you believe there's even a link between Kazakhstan (we all know from previous studies how that place is an Occult epicenter and overt region for "Alien/UFO" activity based on the government's own pronouncements) and Lufthansa's Cargo Planes?

In late 2007, the Lufthansa cargo hub dispute was started by Russia. Lufthansa was forced to relocate its cargo hub from Kazakhstan to Russia.

Oh yeah, for all you "Symbolism Junkies" out there you'll love this! A full 17 hours ago, or a few hours BEFORE this incident and near-tragedy, The Wall Street Journal had this headline and story about Lufthansa...

Test Flight: Lufthansa Searches For Savor In The Sky

As a Christian who studies the "signs of the times" that are all around us, what's the very first thing your mind thought of when you read that headline? Yep, me too! Surreal, huh?

On second thought, if we were to "read between the lines" isn't it also funny how that same headline could serve as a note on NASA's Project Blue Beam and what many have claimed were it's intended and future use to create a "Fake Rapture" and a "False Savior" in the skies overhead worldwide?

Another one I saw that made me think of the coming Antichrist at the head of a New World Order (reading it "between-the-lines") was this one about Lufthansa's chief rival...

Air Berlin Touches Down In Oneworld

When I thought things couldn't get any weirder my head kept spinning some more when I read this news out of Denver, CO (of all places!) reported YESTERDAY even though it actually happened earlier this month...

Highlands Ranch Baby Born On Flight

Highlands Ranch woman gave birth on a flight from Germany to Denver earlier this month.

Expectant mother Heather Randle went into
labor on the Lufthansa flight, which was then diverted to Canada, and gave birth to daughter Trudance on the plane. The baby was seven weeks early.

Randle said her
water broke and she began having contractions. Three different doctors responded to the emergency. When her contractions grew closer together, the doctors told her she would definitely have the child on the plane.

Because of the rather unique circumstance, the baby will have
dual citizenship to the United States and Canada and may also get a German passport.

Are you kidding me!?!

It's all there in a "meaningless" and "random" real-world account of a "rare" incident: A "high land" (Heaven); a reminder of Jesus' own description of the end times being likened to labor pains and child birth (story of the birth itself; beginning of the Tribulation); the numbers 3 (Holy Trinity) and 7 (signifies "Completion"); dual citizenship (we Christians are in this world, but not of this world); from Germany to Denver (noting the unusual set of circumstances and symbolism we've seen since 2008 connecting Hitler's Nazi regime with the current US President and administration and the coming Antichrist/New World Order).

Oh yeah, the Lufthansa logo is an encircled Crane in flight. There are only 2 places in the entire King James Version of the Holy Bible where the word "crane" appears. Both are found in prophetic Books...

Isaiah 38:14 (KJV) Like a crane [or] a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail [with looking] upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

Jeremiah 8:7 (KJV) Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

For an intriguing analysis of those chapters in relation to this study please check out the following links -- Isaiah 38 / Jeremiah 8. Here's a hint: It's good -- there is hope -- but what's coming is bad too!

Ready for this? I was shocked when I looked at the Strong's Concordance for the word. I read that it is "a horse, so called from it's leaping"! And guess where we find Strong's H5483 in other parts of the Bible?

Ezekiel 38:4 (KJV) And I will turn thee back7725 , and put5414 hooks2397 into thy jaws3895, and I will bring thee forth3318 , and all thine army2428, horses5483 and horsemen6571, all of them clothed3847 with all sorts4358 [of armour, even] a great7227 company6951 [with] bucklers6793 and shields4043, all of them handling8610 swords2719:

Ezekiel 38:15 (KJV) And thou shalt come935 from thy place4725 out of the north6828 parts3411, thou, and many7227 people5971 with thee, all of them riding7392 upon horses5483, a great1419 company6951, and a mighty7227 army2428:

Ezekiel 39:20 (KJV) Thus ye shall be filled7646 at my table7979 with horses5483 and chariots7393, with mighty men1368, and with all men376 of war4421, saith5002 the Lord136 GOD3069.

There it is. Gog-Magog in plain view for us. Fitting. Timely.

We also find it SEVERAL TIMES throughout the Books of the "Minor Prophets" too. But here are some other uses of the word in Zechariah, which I believe are extremely relevant to our studies and this one...

Zechariah 1:8 (KJV) I saw7200 by night3915, and behold a man376 riding7392 upon a red122 horse5483, and he stood5975 among the myrtle trees1918 that [were] in the bottom4699; and behind310 him [were there] red122 horses5483, speckled8320, and white3836.

Zechariah 6:2 (KJV) In the first7223 chariot4818 [were] red122 horses5483; and in the second8145 chariot4818 black7838 horses5483;

Zechariah 6:3 (KJV) And in the third7992 chariot4818 white3836 horses5483; and in the fourth7243 chariot4818 grisled1261 and bay554 horses5483.

Zechariah 6:6 (KJV) The black7838 horses5483 which [are] therein go forth3318 into the north6828 country776; and the white3836 go forth3318 after310 them; and the grisled1261 go forth3318 toward the south8486 country776.

I hope we all recognize those horses by their colors and what they symbolize.

Coming full circle, I've recently learned that the new film Inception uses "Ariadne" as the name of one of the characters in the movie. Ariadne, is a dream scape architect. What the heck is the connection here? Am I reaching? Hardly!

In the past, we've already documented the connection between Ancient Greek and Roman Mythology and end times Bible prophecy (SEE "Apollyon" = "Apollo").

According to my research, we find that...

"The cult of Ariadne consisted of a ceremonial dance, the orgiastic rites and some lamentations. In the Iliad, Homer mentioned the Ariadne's dancing place (choros) prepared by the craftsman Daedalus in the Cnossian Palace. According to the Delian myth the famous Cretan Crane Dance was performed for the first time on the island of Delos by rescued youth, who were travelling with Theseus from Crete to Athens. So, this dance and image of Ariadne played always an important role in the cult on Delos. Also some vase painters depicted Ariadne in a context with dancing. There is a supposition that this ceremonial dance was a part of the collective marriage ritual for marrying couples.

The Ariadne's cult on Naxos was performed also with the orgiastic rites (like the festivals of joy) together
with lamentations and expressions of sorrow (like during funeral ceremonies). In Amathus the sacrifices were brought in honour of Ariadne and at this place a special cult was practised in which a young man was simulating the pains of a woman giving childbirth with some screaming. Ariadne was also remembered in the Athenian festival The Oschophoria (celebration in honour of Theseus) and in the other Athenian festival The Anthesteria (performed in honour of Dionysus) as the wife of both of these two protagonists.

Dance or in Greek Choros. The mythical (choros), built by Daidalus for Ariadne (Iliad, 18.590), still remains a mysterious and ambiguous term for concerned scholars.It either signified the choral dance or the magical space where the dance was performed: namely the dancing floor. The ancient scholars interpreted choros as a place (topos), complete with columns and statues arranged in a circle. Recently discovered circular structures at Knossos were somehow related to Daidalic choros. In earlier texts, choros denoted dance without the indication of a dancing floor.
The dance existed in itself and stayed as a temporal phenomenon. The meaning of the word is still on enigmatic grounds and its importance lies in this ambiguity, Ömür Harmansah Archaic Age and the Metamorphoses of Greek Culture.

Geranos (Γέρανος) (crane dance) was danced in Delos. According to Plutarch, Theseus after having killed
the Minotaur in the Labyrinth of Knossos, on his way back to Athens, he stopped at Delos. There, he offered a sacrifice to the goddess Aphrodite and he danced around the altar. This dance included serpentine movements, imitating the movements of Theseus inside the Labyrinth. The dance is mentioned by Homer in the Iliad. Some experts say that Theseus danced the Geranos in Crete and not Delos.

Sexes did not mix during dance except for the chain or geronos dance. The dance reenacts the story of Ariadne, future wife of Dionysus and daughter of King Minos, aiding Theseus to escape the labyrinth after killing the Minotaur. The lovers flee to the island of Naxos where they erect a monument to Aphrodite and dance a winding, mazelike dance in her honor to celebrate their love.

Some have speculated that the name 'Ariadne' may mean 'the very holy one', and thus the Ariadne of Greek myth may be the (Minoan)
Snake Goddess, 'reduced in legend to a folklore heroine.'"

That baby that was born on that Lufthansa flight that we looked at earlier? Guess what she was named? Trudance. Looking online I couldn't find any info on "name meaning" or "name origin" because it's basically a hybrid creation based on the mother's discretion.

Any Mathematicians out there who care to calculate the odds of us looking at THREE seemingly separate and unrelated stories where the plane's logo is a Crane, and the child's name is "Trudance" (or "True Dance"), which resonates STRONGLY with this goddess "Ariadne" who is also associated with one of the most mystical forms of ceremonial dance known as the "Cretan Crane Dance"!?!

What do you think about all of that? I hate to do this to you, but there's a connection to Roman Catholicism and their blasphemous worship of the Virgin Mary. If you think that's "too harsh" of me, then you need to research the proof which we tried to cover exhaustively to make it an open-and-shut-case during the Right Now Radio Special Report titled "What Every Catholic (And Christian) Needs To Know" that exposed the Cult of Mary.

Get a load of this! What song is associated with this goddess and this Crane Dance that's, in turn, associated with her?

The song, in English is called 'O Pure Virgin'. (for the Greek Version)

"Agni Parthene" is the hymn of St. Nektarios, which begins,
"Agni Parthene, Despina, ahrande Theotoke: here nimfi animfefte."

Agni Parthene (Gr. Αγνή Παρθένε) is a non-liturgical hymn composed in Greek by St. Nectarios of Aegina in the 19th century during his tenure as director of the Rizarios Theological School of Athens. St. Nektarios liked to compose hymns in honor of the Mother of God to deepen his personal prayer and relationship with her. The tradition passed down at the monastery of St. Nektarios, in Aegina, Greece, is that the Lady herself appeared before him and requested that he record on paper a particular hymn the angelic choirs were about to sing. This hymn was the "Agni Parthene". The original script can still be viewed on his prayer table in his bedroom at this monastery.

The original melody to this hymn was composed by an Athonite hymnographer who is said to also have had a vision of the Virgin Mary prior to composing the work. The recording of this melody by the Monks of Simonopetra has contributed significantly to the popularization of the hymn.

Due to its popularity, the hymn has been translated into many langauges and the original melody has been adapted to suit the particular style of church chanting. One such variation is the Valaam Monastery chant of the Russian translation.

The hymn of the Pure Virgin is part of A Small Theotokarion (Athens, 1905) a book of Hymns to the Mother of God, written by St. Nektarios.

This hymn has been used during communion in the Liturgy and it is sometimes chanted at the beginning of Vespers.

If we ended that that would be more than enough for our purposes. Hey, did you know that coming up between August 5th - August 8th thousands will descend upon Carthage, MO for what's called "Marian Days", which is the main festival and pilgrimage for Vietnamese American Roman Catholics, celebrated since 1978 on the 28-acre campus of the Congregation of the Mother Co-Redemptrix in Carthage, Missouri? Me neither.

Vietnamese Americans from many parts of the United States, as well as non-Vietnamese locals, and some visitors from Vietnam, attend the event. The celebration is held during the summer in honor of the Virgin Mary and is highlighted by a large, outdoor Mass each day. The Marian Days offer opportunities for Reconciliation and prayer.

Carthage Preps For Marian Days

33rd annual Marian Days festival will be held Aug. 5-8 at the Congregation of the Mother Co-Redemptrix, 1900 South Grand in Carthage.

I know! You can't make this stuff up! You're all well aware of the history of Carthage, it's role in the Bible (and in the history of Christianity), and how the "Battle of Carthage" (1861) was the beginning of the American Civil War, right? I just learned that Tarshish is translated Carthage in the Septuagint version of the Bible too!

However, I'm afraid the symbolism doesn't end there. I know this last reference will be "too over the top" for many (and perhaps evidence that I really am "nuts" and have lost it! LOL). All kidding aside, just recall ALL OF THE PROPHETIC IMAGERY, SYMBOLISM, AND THEMES we've been exploring not just in this forum lately, but all the rest.

Ok, now that all of that is fresh in your mind (especially the 2 "read-between-the-lines" type of headlines about Lufthansa that are not related to the plane crash from earlier today), take a look at this promotional video from Lufthansa...

Lufthansa Brand Movie

What elements do we find that struck me as being "odd" as it pertains to many of our recent studies around these parts...

* Allusions to the 144,000 mentioned in Revelation
* One Eye symbolism
* Sun symbolism
* Father-Son symbolism
* Lyrics to the song ("...a symphony of angels...")
* More Soccer symbolism
* The color orange again
* Pyramid/Triangle symbolism with hand gestures
* "Star Alliance" and 5-Pointed Star symbol
* Rose symbolism
* "We have an eye for details." (I laughed at that one!)

Like I said, I know that last journey into the symbolic was "over-the-top", and that's why I always hesitate with these types of symbolic studies (they're often more subjective than objective). So be it. There's your disclaimer I suppose.

Keep looking up! MARANATHA!!!


Guest On The Prophecy Zone

Posted by Jeffrey K Radt ("JRed") | Posted in , , , , , , , , , , | Posted on Tuesday, July 27, 2010


Sunday night I had the honor and the privilege of being a Guest on The Prophecy Zone show hosted by Phillip Armstrong.

Phillip is a true pioneer in the Christian Podcast world since he's been producing shows for this ministry that the Lord gave him for the past several years now.

His show is described as follows...

Bible prophecy is the focus here on the Prophecy Zone. The current political landscape is setting the stage for bible prophecy to come to fulfillment. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17. Remember when you first accepted the truth of the Gospel and invited Jesus Christ into your life? You were changed at the instant you first believed. Old things, things you weren’t very happy with in your life, were deleted (passed away). Why then do you dwell on those things God has tossed away? Why do many believers go back to what influenced them and moved them towards evil desires? That’s how Satan works. He knew you before you were a new creation, and he thoroughly enjoys watching you squirm as he reminds you of your past. But it doesn’t need to be like that. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus...” Romans 8:1. What does Paul mean when he refers to those who are “in Christ Jesus”? There is a spiritual union between Christ and believers. We are “In Christ” by faith, and Christ is in us by His Holy spirit. Condemnation only comes from Satan or his minions of evil, never from the Holy Spirit. But oh how we moan and groan as we’re reminded of our past failures. We have been changed in God’s eyes and He now sees us through His beloved Son, Jesus the Christ. If that’s how God sees us then it makes sense that Satan would have his work cut out for himself trying to get us to look back at what we once were. Sadly, many believers today allow Satan to have his way with them. Not only by looking back but going back to what we know is not of God. Satan has no authority over the heart, soul, mind, or spirit of a believer. He can’t touch who we are unless we allow him access through what we allow to enter our minds. The actions of many Christians today prove he has been allowed access to their hearts.

You can listen to the 90 minute discussion HERE if you'd like.

Please note that tonight's Guest on his LIVE program is Bill Salus!
