Last time we learned that Satan’s plan for the End of the Age involves the creation of an Antichrist figure wholly subservient to his purposes. Toward that end the Serpent has been involved in an ages-long deception of mankind. He has enlisted many human allies in that cause, promising them power and even a nearly godlike status. To accomplish his ends, Satan is employing “deceiving spirits” teaching “doctrines of demons.” This Grand Rebellion will reach its acme with the enthronement of the “man of sin.” And that will not come without the cooperation of an army of humans willing and even eager to be deceived into fulfilling the purposes of the satanic will – all because they had not “the love of the truth.” In this issue we’ll be executing a bit of a U-turn and talking about some of the dangers that may lie just ahead.
THE ROAD JUST AHEAD
“And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:4-6)
We live in incredible times. The global situation is so fraught with dangers on so many levels and fronts that we can scarce get our minds around these events. Take just the world economy. The level of instability and manipulation going on in the highest levels of high finance is such that it threatens the stability of the entire globe. Let’s start with the price of oil. Now we Americans, along with many others in consumer nations are enjoying a bit of a price holiday, being able to pocket or spend more money as gas prices have plunged. But it is not such a rosy picture as it seems on the surface. Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse, explains. “On June 16th, US oil was trading at a price of $107.52. Since then, it has fallen by almost 50 dollars in less than 6 months. This has only happened one other time in our history. In the summer of 2008, the price of oil utterly collapsed and we all remember what happened after that. Well, the same patterns that we witnessed back in 2008 are happening again. As the price of oil crashed in 2008, so did prices for a whole host of other commodities. That is happening again.” This has contributed to fan extremely volatile stock market picture worldwide. Some nations are on the verge of financial collapse due their dependence on high oil prices. “Financial markets all over Europe are in turmoil right now. In addition to crashing oil prices, there is also renewed concern about the fundamental stability of the eurozone.” Snyder asks the obvious question: “Are we experiencing a repeat of 2008?”[i]
The official Russian position on all of this can be gleaned from the broadcasts of Radio Sputnik, an arm of the Russian government. “The coming crisis, like the one in 2008, which is still lingering, is planned. And it is planned by the international banking and financial elite, which is led by Wall Street with the support of the Fed and of the European Central Bank. And, of course, the purpose of that is to make the rich financial elite richer and actually rob the common people of their savings and of their social system.”[ii] Now we know that that’s Putin’s official position – but in some ways it is not very far from the truth. It is not just mere propaganda. Radio Sputnik was just quoting a real global-financial insider, former World Bank economist Peter Koenig. And we are once again seeing an explosion in the volatile subprime lending market. Congress has voted to ease regulations and now just five banks hold 44% of all bank assets. Taken together that’s a frightening recipe for manipulation of the markets.
Even the Western press is writing of the manipulation that is occurring and how it is all a part of the global struggle of the West on the one hand – lined up against the Russians, along with their Chinese allies and North Korean client state. (So, I suppose you could lump in the SONY fiasco under this umbrella too.) The UK’s Daily Mail discounts the importance of nuclear weapons and describes oil as “the world’s most potent weapon.” They declare openly, “Forget nuclear arms. The US and Saudis are behind an oil price crash that could topple regimes in Russia and Iran.” The collapse in oil prices “has sparked fiscal crisis that threatens to shift global power balance.” And the article asserts that the “US and Saudi Arabia are using market slump to wreak havoc on enemies.” The economic offensive has already achieved one goal of the West. Russia had been poised to build an oil pipeline “across the Black Sea and the Balkans [that] would have given the Kremlin a stranglehold on the energy supplies of a slew of European countries — Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary and Austria.” But Russia is one of those nations dependent on robust oil pricing to fills its treasury. So Putin has been forced to cancel the entire project.[iii] Natural News quoted prophecy writer Steve Quayle to flesh out just what is going on. “First, the West has driven down the price of oil to such an extent that the Russians are being forced to tap into both their gold and oil reserves to keep their economy afloat. Further, there is a direct attack upon the Ruble by the West as Russia’s financial liquidity was terminated in Western banks and all positions which have invested in the Ruble are being terminated by Wall Street and other investment firms.”[iv] Quayle described these developments as “acts of war” perpetrated by Western Bankers against Russia. That’s a very dangerous game to be playing.
And that’s just how Putin seems to be taking it: as acts of war. So he’s starting to take action. One thing Russia is doing is moving toward trading oil exclusively for gold, trying to wall out the US dollar. Of course, right now he’s not able to succeed completely, but Moscow is moving in that direction. But what is more scary than an economic slug-fest is the specter of an actual hot war; one that might even go nuclear. Steve Quayle weighs in. “Yes, Russia will unleash black swans against the West, but here is the scary part: The Chinese and the Russians no longer believe in ‘Mutually Assured Destruction,’ or MAD. Instead, they believe in ‘First Strike.’ What that means is that if they are threatened, they reserve the right to use nuclear weapons in a first strike.” That news came out a few weeks ago. It was a reversal of shared-in-common policies of both the US and the USSR that kept our world safe out of fear alone. The nation that even entertains the notion of a First Strike raises the probability of nuclear war precipitously.
Then Quayle adds this little tidbit that raises the ante even more. “The Russians are ready to shelter the majority of their populations in major cities in the event of a nuclear war. By contrast, the United States only has facilities for the elite and key personnel in the form of roughly 234 underground bases. These bases are referred to by the military and the elite as Deep Underground Military Bases (or DUMB). And if you look at what is happening right now in the United States, I’m getting reports from all over the country from food processors about huge orders of food by U.S. government agencies to be delivered to these underground bases. The key is the government has requested immediate shipment of this food so that it can be stockpiled. These are the type of preparations that would be taken if it appeared that world war, or a possible nuclear exchange was on the horizon.”[v] As if to punctuate the situation, “Chinese leader Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party have repeatedly exhorted the People’s Liberation Army to ‘be ready to win a war.’”[vi]
And there is more. President Putin has put together a military alliance against the United States of involving 10 Latin American nations. He also “as forged a deep alliance with China through the virtual merging of the energy resources of both countries,” – and is personally managing the attack against the Petro-dollar; the sacred cow of the Western Banking Elites, the puppet masters who pull the strings of Western governments.
Now together, the Russians and the Chinese control the North Koreans. Dave Hodges reports that he has received intelligence that: “North Korea is preparing to launch a massive attack against the United States and the attack will take one of two forms: (1) the generation of an EMP attack upon our power grid; and, (2) an attack upon selected nuclear power plants, thus causing multiple Fukushima’s at the same time.” In this electronically sophisticated age, our infrastructure has become both our strength and our Achilles heel. North Korean hackers have developed the capability to generate “such an effect n our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities. As part of the November 2013 Grid EX II drill, which simulated an EMP attack upon the United States, Russia and China, are most formidable enemies, were invited to attend.” We’ve invited our enemies inside the gates…..as witness to our strengths and weaknesses. Whether localized or a classic EMP attack, the resultant electronic pulse would devastate our communications, hospitals, transportation, food distribution system, water supply and more. Planes would fall from the sky and most cars would not start. Official estimates of the results of a massive EMP attack would see “between 250,000 to 500,000 people … die in the first few minutes. Perhaps as many as 1-2 million would be dead within three days.” One Congressman predicts a 60% mortality rate for the areas affected by an attack. The Naval War College says that the number is more likely around 90%. Now one of Hodges sources claims that the US military is preparing for an attack expected in the first two weeks of January 2015. Dave Hodges concludes this is all part of the ‘Plan’. “When America emerges from the event, the NSA police state surveillance grid would be permanently in place for the extreme martial law dictatorship that will follow.”[vii]
