WAR ON TERROR – NEXT ROUND

The next round has begun. Citing the fact that ISIS or ISIL and related jihadi groups were about to launch attacks against the West – some of which would target passenger planes – the US and several allies launched, at this writing, nearly 200 attacks against the terrorists. One group, Khorasan, was said to be approaching the “execution phase”. The Daily Mail reported that the terrorists “planned to attack using bombs without metal parts, toothpaste tubes and clothes dipped in explosives.” The threat is very real – even if the CIA was somewhat complicit in creating this ISIS enemy, much as they did al-Qaeda. The Blaze TV’s For the Record documents the willingness and ability of ISIS fighters to launch terror attacks against the US. We’ve documented how ISIS forces have seized stocks of Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons (which didn’t exist). They’ve expressed a willingness and even an eagerness to use these weapons against the US. The US southern border is an open sieve where massive ... [More]

REAL ISLAM – PART VI

To comprehend the world we live in today we must understand the historical process that brought us here. This international sense of chaos was not birthed in a vacuum   So from where we left off: Muslim/Arab populations are increasing throughout Europe, while declining birthrates and cultural apathy plague the native Europeans. The growing Arab communities are increasing their political influence and changing the character of that continent. But just how did this all happen? THE RISE OF EURABIA There is a new power on the rise in the world. Its very existence has been almost a secret to all but a few. It is something called Eurabia. In 1973 two events occurred that set the table for the Europe and the world we see today. Israel defeated an Arab coalition in the Yom Kippur War, and the Arab League engaged in an oil embargo of the West. In response, with France leading the way, the European Community, (forerunner of today’s E.U.), established a framework of cooperation with the Arab ... [More]

THE SHEMITAH – PART III

We’ve been working our way through the examples of just how the ancient principle of the Shemitah has manifested in history. We’ve seen how this seventh year financial Sabbath has marked both the year – and often the very day of the greatest financial collapses including the onset of the Great Depression, the Stock Market plunge that followed the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and the record setting Wall Street tumble of 2008. We are coming upon another ‘year of the Shemitah.’ What may it mean to our future? THE NEXT SHEMITAH Before we examine the implications the Shemitah may have for our future we should make ourselves aware of some amazing facts. Whether one thinks this whole Shemitah thing has merit – or is a monumental set of coincidences – it is good to understand just what happened. Recall that the Shemitah marks the end of a seven year cycle. That seven year cycle that ended September 29, 2008, began on September 17, 2001 – the very day of the crash of 2001 – which followed and was ... [More]

REAL ISLAM – PART V

Real Islam is NOT a benign religion, a moral equivalency. It is a real threat to what remains of the Christo-centric culture that has dominated and driven Western moral thought for these last several centuries. Now we seem Islam taking advantage of the moral confusion that has set in in the West – especially Europe. In PART V we’ll explore this phenomenon and examine how it could alter our future. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2Timothy 4:3-4) All across Europe, the winds of change are blowing. The Europe that brought us the Renaissance and the Reformation is no more. In a continent where art and architecture and the culture and intellectual life of nations was once centered on God of the Bible, there is no faith. To paraphrase Lincoln: Europe has lost ... [More]

THE SHEMITAH – PART II

Last week we reintroduced the concept of the Shemitah. It is a principle of Scriptures found in the Old Testament wherein every seventh year a Sabbath year was to be observed. As described by one writer: It was a time “when all working of the land ceased, the land rested. This took place every seventh year. On the last day of that year, all debts were wiped away, all credit was nullified, the financial accounts of the nation were, in effect, wiped clean. Later on, in Israel’s history, as the nation turned away from God, the Shemitah became a sign and manifestation of judgment, the kingdom’s destruction in 586 B.C. and its exile in Babylon were timed to the years of the Shemitah.”[i] In this installment we’ll look a bit at the historical workings of the Shemitah and begin to explore what it could mean to our future. [This series is based, of course, on the work of Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, head of Hope of the World Ministries. For a deeper understanding of these concepts I recommend that you ... [More]
