In this series we’ve been taking a two-track approach, alternating between examining the revealed, long-term plans of the Illuminati and One-World types, on the one hand – and – analyzing current events that are building the historical framework for the exact fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Today we will be looking at the unfolding crisis of 2015.
THE UNFOLDING PRESENT
“Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, And are counted as the small dust on the scales.” (Isaiah 40:15)
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations.” (Psalm 33:10-11) (ESV)
BETRAYING ISRAEL – It is a hard thing to watch; this transformation of American policy that is abandoning a foreign policy set in place in 1948, at the birth of the modern Jewish state and adhered too since then, to varying degrees by every American president. It is true that some recent occupants of the Oval Office have strayed by putting pressure on the government in Jerusalem to give-away land-for-peace to an Arab people dedicated the destruction of Israel. These giveaways have resulted in just providing the Palestinians with forward bases from which to launch their rockets. Now it has gone even farther. Israel is facing an existential threat from Iran and its proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah. At issue is the capability of Iran to produce its own nuclear weapons. Proposals on the table right now would seem to actually ease that path for the Mullah’s of Tehran. The outline of the looming agreement would dramatically increase the capability of the Iranians to refine more nuclear fuel. The proposed deal almost certainly guarantees Iran will have a nuclear capacity in no more than 10 years. The discovery of another secret Iranian nuclear site has in no way dissuaded President Obama from pursuing this path.
Now Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has opposed such a course with all his being. He has heard the words of the Iranian leadership calling for the destruction of Israel and has noted their professed willingness to sustain significant damage from Israeli atomic weapons which would be launched in retaliation. He cannot gamble on the fact that they might be puffing, posturing or bluffing. The danger to Israel’s survival. Well, it is positions like this – along with Bibi’s unwillingness to give away Jerusalem – (Israel’s Holy and capital city) – for a long-term peace deal that has led the President to actively oppose Netanyahu at every turn. Members of Obama’s re-election team of 2008 have showed up in Israel with bundles of money in hand, to work for Netanyahu’s defeat in the coming elections. And then there is this. Susan Rice is President Obama’s National Security Adviser. So when she speaks, she speaks for the administration – and by extension the United States government. She recently decided to lecture Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. She said that he “needs to understand that, although the relationship between the US and Israel has been traditionally prosperous, the US will still need to support its best friend in the Middle East, which at this point in time happens to be Iran.”[i] Now God has promised to bless and curse people and nations according to how they treat the People / Nation of the promise given Abraham: Israel. “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you.” (Genesis 12:3) God help the United States.
SEPTEMBER 2015: A DATE WITH DESTINY ? – It’s the time of the ‘Big Lie’! The mainstream media reports that on the economic front: Everything is getting better. They dutifully report that the unemployment rate has hit 5.5% – so close to the magic 5% number that economists consider full employment and the administration celebrates the wonderful job they are doing. But you dig just a little bit deeper and the disturbing truth begins to emerge. That number is achieved largely because the methodology requires that the government statisticians remove the long-term unemployed from the equation. (I myself have been out of a day job for nearly 6 months now – and if I do not get a job in the next several weeks – will soon become part of the ‘Uncounted’). Statistics tell us that despite significant population gains, the US workforce has declined from 153 million to 148 million since the year 2000. King World News reports that people not participating in the labor market soared from 78 million to 93 million. Median income fell in real terms and average housing prices went from 170,000 to 295,000.[ii] Total jobs have actually decreased by 140,000 since about the time President Obama took over in 2008. Michael Snyder puts it in perspective. “When you add the number of “officially unemployed” Americans (8.7 million) to the number of Americans “not in the labor force” (92.9 million), you get a grand total of 101.6 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now. Does that sound like ‘full employment’ to you?”[iii] John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics traces the unemployment rate the way the government used until the discouraged long-term unemployed workers were “defined out of existence in 1994.” Using the old methodology Williams calculated the January unemployment rate at 23.2%.[iv] That number is comparable to mid-Great Depression statistics!
But ‘real’ unemployment is only a small part of that picture. The World’s economy is in trouble – and lots of folks know it. Egon von Greyerz is the man who recently predicted the collapse of the euro against the Swiss Franc. He’s now warning that we are sitting on the cusp of massive global wealth destruction and panic. “US debt is now at $250 trillion, including unfunded liabilities, plus there is another $350 trillion in worthless derivatives. And with most production capacity exported to China, there is absolutely nothing that supports the dollar.” So it is the massive printing of money – not just by the US but by governments all around the world – that is propping up the very deceptive stock market highs that we are seeing. It is all just an illusion.[v]
And now the Federal Reserve is warning of future interest hikes. In a King World News piece authored by Robert Fitzwilson of The Portola Group, we are alerted that we are “about to witness orchestrated financial destruction and social unrest that is beyond imagination.” [Note the purposeful use of the word “orchestrated” in above quote!] That’s because “A meaningful rise in rates will collapse the global financial system.” Alan Greenspan, the former Fed Chair is carrying a similar message for the financial markets.[vi] Lord Jacob Rothschild, of the famous international banking family, is cautioning investors that they are facing “a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II,” coming as the result of “chaos and extremism in the Middle East, Russian aggression and expansion, and a weakened Europe threatened by horrendous unemployment, in no small measure caused by a failure to tackle structural reforms.”[vii]
To David Morgan, market analyst and author, the danger is imminent. “Basically, the United States have exported our inflation to every other country. So, for them to stay competitive, they are required to weaken their own currencies for what is called competitive advantage. It simply means if they don’t print . . . their currencies would become too strong, and they would not be able to export. In order to keep trade flowing, these other countries are basically required to do what the U.S. government does, and that is export a great quantity of un-backed paper promises that are impossible to pay back. That’s the crux of ‘The Debt Bomb.’ It’s going to explode.” He points out that – [after remaining stable from the founding of the Republic until the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913] – the dollar has lost 96% of its value. There has been a long, slow-motion collapse in value. Now by applying “strict” analytics to market “momentum” and money supply trends he is convinced there will be an acceleration in the process – and that it is right around the corner. By his calculations, that “Debt Bomb,” is set to explode in September of 2015! A very interesting time frame, indeed![viii] That’s because that’s exactly when the God-instituted financial Sabbath will fall.
The Shemitah 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.”[ix] What is remarkable though is the way that this principle seems to have been applied to the US economy. The five great economic collapses of the last 40 years occurred – not only in the year of the Shemitah – but also in the time of year that the Sabbath year was ending. Jonathan Cahn explained: “Every seventh year – on the last day of Shemitah, Elul 29 – all credit is wiped away. The financial accounts of a nation are wiped clean.” You see, the Shemitah affects the economy and the timing of recessions and depressions. God meant this concept as a blessing. But when a nation turns against God – as Israel did – “it comes back as a judgment on a nation that’s driving God out of its life.” Those five great economic collapses were timed to the Shemitah; 1973 (the year the US legalized abortion), 1980, 1987, 2001 (post 9/11) and 2008. Each one was “separated by a seven-year period. All linked to the year of the Shemitah.”[x] As World Net Daily puts it: The collapses of 2001 and 2008 “coincided precisely with the exact end of the Shemitah year on the Hebrew calendar day of Elul 29.”[xi] In fact, the three greatest crashes in American history were related to the Shemitah. Look at the recession of 1937-38. The Shemitah begins and the “next day Wall Street collapses.” In 2008, the Great Recession began on the very day of the Shemitah. Even the Great Depression saw the greatest month long collapse in American history – immediately following the Shemitah.
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 caused by the 9/11 terror attacks. So that seven year period began and ended with the two greatest stock crashes in history. Now recall that one of the meanings of the word Shemitah is ‘to let fall’ or ‘to crash’. Jonathan Cahn believes that this was the ‘letting fall’ of the American Economic Order. And fall it did – in quite the dramatic fashion. As the sun went down on September 29, 2008, it was the beginning of the Hebrew month of Tishri. Congress had just rejected a $700 billion bailout plan. This was followed immediately by a 7% fall in the Dow Jones average – representing exactly a 777 point drop. All of this occurring on exactly the final day of the 7th year, the actual day of the Shemitah. In fact the crash happened to the very minute, the very second of Shemitah.
That was the past! While Rabbi Cahn sees it as a warning to America, he is careful to make certain that we know that the Shemitah does not bring judgment each and every time. As he puts it: “God does not have to do anything.” However, by its actions and its interests, this nation is steadily moving toward judgment. Now the next Shemitah year began September 25, 2014. It is usual that not very much happens at the beginning – but that it gathers momentum as the year draws to a close. According to the Hebrew calendar, the Shemitah will end on Elul 29 – or September 13, 2015. Now the last time solar eclipse happened on Elul 29, it marked greatest wipe out of wealth in history up to that point (1987). Does that mean we are guaranteed a massive economic collapse will happen in September of this year? NO, of course not. But it is significant to note that now even secular analysts are pointing to that same time-frame as a danger point.
HOW FAR WE’VE FALLEN – Not long ago, a shocking headline caught my eye. “Colorado Democrats Kill Bill Protecting Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions.” On March 4th, Life Site News reported: “Democrats on a Colorado state House panel last night defeated a pro-life bill to ensure babies who survive failed abortions receive appropriate medical care and protection.” Pro-abortion groups defended the defeat by claiming that it was un-needed because babies were not born alive after abortions. However the Center for Disease Control says that there are about 1,200 such cases each year.[xii] Abortion is a BIG LIE. It is NOT a final means of birth control. In fact it is something much darker and deeper. Former Satanist and now born-again Christian Doc Marquis has testified that “Satanists view aborted babies as THE most powerful human sacrifice possible.” Carrying it one step further, in 1986 the news show ‘20-20’ ran expose on Satanism in which pregnant Satanists are shown. They told the news magazine that “they were giving birth to these babies for the express purpose of sacrificing their infants to Satan.”[xiii] Whether in the form of abortion or more blatant child sacrifice for religious reasons, the practice has been with us for thousands of years. One of the gravest sins of the apostate Israelites was when they adopted the practices of the peoples around them and sacrificed their children to the god Molech in the fire. Leviticus 18:21 addresses this directly. “You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.” (ESV) Even today, thousands of aborted babies “are routinely burned for heat or electricity worldwide.” The practice “is even mandated in dozens of state health codes as a way of managing potentially hazardous and infectious medical waste.”[xiv] Scripture tells us that God turned His face from even His own Chosen People for this very evil. “And they burned their sons and their daughters as offerings and used divination and omens and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger. Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them out of his sight. None was left but the tribe of Judah only.” (2Kings 17:17-18) (ESV) What fate? What judgment then awaits America for the very same sin?
