As we begin the second decade of this newsletter we can look out upon the scene and see a world steeped in chaos. Pandemics threaten continents and are poised to spread via open borders to our own country of America. ISIS / ISIL threatens Iraq, Baghdad itself, Syria and the Greater Middle East – and even waves its ugly head-removing scimitar at America at Europe and the USA. The dollar and the stock markets seemed poised on collapse. A new economic reality strangles and shrinks the middle class, exacerbating the gap between the well-off and the poorest among us. And control-hungry governments aggregate and assume power across the globe – (aided by the looming menace of a terror they have themselves created or abbetted) – limiting the freedoms of citizens – all in the name of peace and security.
As I talk to and read the writing of numbers of godly people; folks with their ears poised to hear the leading of the Holy Spirit: I hear the same message again and again. We are entering a time of trouble unlike what this Republic – this world has faced before. Rick Joyner, Dave Hodges, Jonathan Cahn and so many others warn us of what is coming. Pastor Lindsey Williams, who served as the pastor to many in Big Oil, and thus is a proven and trusted insider-source – has stopped doing interviews because to do so would no longer impact impending events. Scripture tells us that the Enemy has plans for the Human Race. And that includes killing off billions in an End Times blood frenzy. The writings of the Illuminati types confirm that this is so. Looking through carnal eyes, our future seems bleak indeed. But God has other plans as witnessed by the words of 1Corinthians 2:7-9. “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’”
This will be a wide-ranging series, taking on the challenge of defining, as best we can, the outline of our future from both man’s perspective – as well as God’s. There will be new material – as well as old. It may at times seem a wild ride. But we will forever remain rooted in the fact that in the end: God wins! Jesus will return triumphant. The Devil will be banished. And that those that belong to Him will rule and reign with Him. Alleluia to the Lamb of God!
SIGNS OF TROUBLE
There is a sense among so many Spirit-filled Chirstians today that something big is just over the horizon. Whatever you may think of him or modern-day prophecy in general, Rick Joyner recently shared a dream in which he saw hordes of ISIS terrorists entering the Southwestern US across our open southern border. In that dream they terrorized, tortured and murdered the Americans they came in contact with. With their systematic murders it was like the Gates of Hell opened and demonic forces were relaesed to work their hellish work. Chaos ensued across the country as militias formed; first for protection, but later came against elements in the US government who allowed this to happen.[i]
In our articles on the Shemitah, we saw how Rabbi Jonathan Cahn believes that a great economic / financial shaking is coming to America….“something like a famine in the land.” It will be marked by a breakdown in services and infrastructure. “It’s in God’s mercy. Because I believe at this point, without shaking, I don’t think there can be revival. God’s heart is revival….Anything that can be shaken will be shaken.” [ii] And a personal friend who is the national head of an international ministry believes that some big, prophetic event is just around the corner.
While all of this emanates from the realm of the prophetic, there is other more concrete evidence that something significant is afoot. Dave Hodges of the Common Sense Show, says: “Something big is about to happen.” His sources have pointed for years to the end of 2014 as the time targeted for an attack on “our institutions and perhaps our very way of life. Some of my very best contacts have told me that it is time to stop warning the people, because it is now time to start hiding from the wrong people.” He backs up his opinions with some very disturbing facts. Researcher Jim Mars told Hodges audience back in December of 2012 that at that time, 400-500 high-level bankers had gone into hiding. The elite had developed “seed vaults” against the days of destruction that were coming upon the earth. Hodges himself adds this. “My insider sources inform me that the same thing is happening in various federal organizations who have recently retired from the CIA, DHS, NSA and FEMA…. I have firsthand knowledge of four ex-fed officials and their families who have relocated to safety enclaves when doing so was very disruptive to their respective family’s lives. Increasingly, it is looking like some major event(s) is/are coming and persons with insider information are attempting to remove themselves from harm’s way.” He goes on to detail some of the arrangements that are in place for certain US government officials as well as members of the globalist elites. “It is a matter of official agency policy that some current DHS and CIA officials and their families will be provided safe sanctuary in various strategic locations in Colorado in times of trouble.” These include the not-so-secret facilities locate underneath Denver’s airport as well as the “Cheyenne Mountain NORAD/Fort Carson/Peterson Air Force Base underground facilities.”[iii] [This brings to mind the words of Revelation 6:15-17. “And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders,[g] the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’” Just saying…..]
This very scenario of moving the ‘elite’ to safe hideaways in the Colorado mountains was practiced in September of 2011 when the US government staged something called Operation Mountain Garden, a “Continuity of Government Exercise.” Hodges writes: “The Denver airport was shut down to commercial air travel except for specific, undesignated planes which were allowed to land in preparation for some staged catastrophe…. it is not coincidental that the CIA has relocated its major data collection facilities to underground structures in the Denver International Airport.” Hodges goes on to point out the implications for the Washington DC area. “The planned obsolescence for the nation’s capital is becoming increasingly apparent.” He points to the fact that other folks in the know, National Security Administration officials have retired and are moving to underground facilities in the Ozarks. It is reported that in these areas they have constructed mini-self-sustaining villages, heavily armed and with years of stored food. Other reports have former FEMA officials relocating to the hills of North Carolina. Dave Hodges message is summarized in his title: “When These People Go Into Hiding, It Is Time to Pay Attention.”[iv]
Another writer, Frank Brady, points to the lateness of the hour by summing up the threat posed by some of the major lies that are being perpetrated upon the American people by their government. He writes: “The invasion by illegal aliens across the U.S./Mexican border happened, not because of a need to flee dangerous conditions south of the border, but because the United States government invited it and subsidized it. Russia did not commit aggression against the Ukraine. The United States government did by overthrowing the Ukraine’s elected government and establishing a puppet regime in its stead. ISIS did not spring up unexpectedly and suddenly. The United States government and its ‘allies’ created ISIS, trained it, armed it, and continue to ‘advise’ it to this day.”[v] We are dealing with a time when the reality we are facing is 180 degrees off of reality. Truth is demeaned as a lie and the LIE is advanced as absolute truth. And our part – in all of this, as we approach the coming of the End of the Age – our part is to be Watchmen on the Wall. We are so charged; not to ignore what is going on and the lateness of the hour – but to be light in a darkened world that is falling farther and farther away from the Truth. In this series we will use the perfect filter of God’s Word to look at today’s events and the intentions of the forces working for the Enemy as he seeks the overthrow of mankind, exploring the subject from many aspects and angles. The Enemy is at the gates…..And all of us who see are called to be Watchmen, warning of the coming danger.
