“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. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:4-8)
Nation against Nation
It was to be a day of celebration in Israel. Seventy years a nation! A biblical generation. Perhaps the generation that would see the coming of Messiah. So it was a day of celebration and ceremony marking an historic moment; the survival of Israel and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by the United States, through the dedication of an embassy. But it was something else too. It was a day of blood. Tens of thousands of Palestinians, egged on by Hamas, approached the border between Gaza and Israel proper intent on breaching the border. Push the children to the front. They may crack the border….but that won’t last, not with Israel’s crack military. But the pictures of wounded children being rushed off the field, the images of shot or gassed women: That will win the public relations war. That will paint the Israelis as monsters. That will win the world. And so it did. The Jerusalem Post reports:
“Buses bring people to the protests. There are people there selling food. There is a macabre element to this, with protesters saying they’ll have a meal before they become ‘shahid’ or martyr at the front. THE MASSES that approach the fence are made up of generally young men and teenagers, including youth and children. There are very few women closest to the fence. The protesters know how the security forces have been operating. They expect to be shot or are co gnizant that this is a distinct possibility. There are ambulance teams and medics, as well as numerous spontaneous volunteers, ready to take away the injured, many of them shot in the legs. As the young men burn tires, and others prepare Molotov cocktails, or slingshots, some prepare kites to fly. The goal of the protesters is to get to the fence and, with select groups of young men who have brought wire cutters, to cut through. Most of them don’t make it this far. But some of them do.”[i] [“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”]
And so they came, a culmination of six weeks of bloody protests with Hamas as happy to have some well documented martyrdom to feed the frenzy and deceive the world. Push the children in front! Push the teens in front! Their blood makes good pictures. The IDF warned repeatedly that it would be dangerous to approach the border fence. But still they came, 35,000 to 40,000 strong. The mainstream media blared their headlines. The New York Times: Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem. CNN: US opens new Embassy in Jerusalem as dozens die in Gaza clashes. CNN: Controversial US pastors take part in Jerusalem embassy opening. One of those pastors was John Hagee who offered this nugget of truth. “We thank you, O Lord, for President Donald Trump’s courage in acknowledging to the world a truth that was established 3,000 years ago — that Jerusalem is and always shall be the eternal capital of the Jewish people.”[ii]
In the event, IDF snipers killed about 58 Palestinians, mostly as they threw fire bombs, launched fire-kites to destroy Israeli crops, fired on the border or otherwise assaulted Israeli troops or cut their way through the border fence. It turns out 24 of them were Hamas terrorists. The New York Times reported: “More than 2,700 Palestinian demonstrators were injured on Monday — at least 1,350 by gunfire.” White House spokesman Rah Shah rightly blamed Hamas for the carnage. “The responsibility for these tragic deaths rest squarely with Hamas. Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response. And as the secretary of state said, Israel has the right to defend itself.”[iii] The Jerusalem Post published details of one IDF operation to counter the attempted incursions. During the course of the day, the IDF became aware “that a Hamas squad was planning to place an explosive charge on the fence to allow to for a mass infiltration into Israel.” So an IDF unit took up positions “opposite the expected attack point in the northern Gaza Strip. When the squad of eight terrorists emerged from amidst the violent demonstration which was taking place, two armored IDF vehicles drove over the fence and were attacked by the cell with explosives and light weapons. According to the army the cell fired at troops from two different locations, one from a hill some 200 meters from the security fence and another point some 30 meters from the border. Troops then engaged the cell, opening fire at them from Israeli territory while a tank and IAF aircraft struck the terrorists’ position. All eight terrorists were killed in the exchange of gunfire.”[iv]
But the facts on the ground matter little in all of this. Though justified in defending her borders, Israel should have perhaps managed the situation differently. It has created a public relations nightmare. This has allowed Turkey’s Erdogan an opportunity to rally the Muslim world against Israel. From Breitbart: “Turkey has called on all Islamic countries to review their ties with ‘terror state’ Israel ahead of an extraordinary summit of the world’s main pan-Islamic body to protest Israel’s actions in defending itself against deadly Gaza riots. ‘The Islamic world should move as one, with one voice, against this massacre’”[v] “For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem.” (Zechariah 14:2)
But Israel is not the lone hot spot in the world right now. The scheduled summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un is in trouble over the annual military maneuvers by the US and South Korea. What was a diffusing situation may be heading back toward a nuclear crisis mode. And right on cue, China
once again has its eyes on Taiwan. Just as Taiwan is beginning to openly talk about independence, Chinese President Xi is signaling that the fate of what the Communists see as a breakaway province must be decided in the very near future. [The Taiwanese are the remnant of the old, non-Communist Nationalist China that was defeated by Mao and the Reds after World War II. The US is committed to defending Taiwan against Communist takeover.] Now, as reported in the Asia Times, “While the media continue to focus on developments from the recent summit between Pyongyang and Seoul and the upcoming meeting between Pyongyang and Washington, Beijing has taken advantage of the diversion to increase pressure on Taiwan. Chinese President Xi Jinping, in a highly-charged speech before the National People’s Congress, warned that Beijing was ready to fight its enemies in a ‘bloody battle’ to regain its past glory and preserve its empire. Subsequently, an editorial in the Global Times, a state-owned but unofficial outlet for ideas that Beijing wishes to float for reaction, said China must prepare for a ‘direct military clash in the Taiwan Straits.’”[vi] This comes at a time when China is rapidly expanding its naval forces – and the US is not keeping up. According to The Wall Street Journal, “China’s navy is set to surpass our fleet by 2030.”[vii]
Now consider everything we’ve covered so far in the light of the revealed plan to bring forth the New Age Christ (read Antichrist) – as published in Peter Lemesuirier’s 1980 book, The Armageddon Script. In his book he lays out in detail just how the Illuminati New World Order types plan to maintain the pressure that will create the conditions necessary for the rise of the Antichrist. Here are the details of the plan.
- Arab Israeli War – Israel wins an annihilating victory, fulfilling many Biblical prophecies.
- Catastrophic Terror – Major terror attacks against the US & Europe using WMDs.
- Nuclear Crisis In Korea – Lemesurier writes, “A hair raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may, towards the end of the period, threaten man’s very survival.”
- Taiwan Invasion – China uses the fact that the S. is occupied on two fronts to invade Taiwan, challenging the already stretched American Naval forces in the region.
- Alien Presence – Extraterrestrials manifest a presence that leads to the collapse of the religious beliefs of many around the globe. [Artificial or demonic in nature.] Here are the words of Bill Lambert as quoted by David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries. “UFO’s and Aliens are part of the New World Order. They are benevolent beings which will aid mankind in attaining the goal of becoming one humanity. They will appear at the proper time to enable mankind to make that Quantum Leap of Collective Consciousness — when the Anti-Christ appears.” [Henry Kissinger has suggested much the same thing.]
- Stock Market to Crash – You can see why.
- Earthquakes around the world – (Russian and U.S. military capabilities include the ability to create earthquakes.)
- The New Age Christ Appears – He is a man of peace. He claims to be the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha rolled into one. He shows displays of supernatural power.[viii]
So there you have it, all developing at the same time; the potential for a war in the Middle East, a nuclear crisis in Korea and the whole China / Taiwan deal. And there is more.
Earthquakes in Various Places
In just the last week or so:
- Daily Mail headline from May 15, 2018: “Terrifying wave of FIFTEEN earthquakes strikes New Zealand with fears the ‘big one’ could be next”
- Daily Mail, May 15th: “Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupting as two new fissures open spewing lava 100ft in the air”
- Zero Hedge, May 14th: “Ring Of Fire On Alert After Philippines Earthquake: California Is Warned”
“After a 5.2 magnitude earthquake struck the Philippines, the Ring of Fire was put on alert. After dozens of earthquakes rocked Hawaii this month, followed by a volcanic eruption, many fear the Ring of Fire has become much more active, which has prompted scientists to warn California….. With Hawaii experiencing widespread devastation at the hands of the Kilauea volcano, geologists are now warning that California could be the next in line for an explosive eruption. California, which sits on the volatile Pacific Ring of Fire, and is well overdue for a massive and devastating earthquake. The state is also now on volcano alert.”[ix]
Ebola is back. And it is sprading. And the World Health Organization is more than a little concerned about the matter. This disease, with about a 50% mortality has broken out in The Congo for the 9th time since its discovery in the 1970s. At first it was islolated and rulral – but now has gone urban. The WHO now fears that it may not be able to control its spread. The Organic Prepper described the Ebola outbreak of 2014 whose treatment was laced with inattentiveness and incompetence. “It ripped through West Africa for two years, killing over 11,000 people and sickening nearly 30,000. But the reason WE remember it in the United States is that it crept into our country. Shortly after the CDC warned us to prepare for a potential Ebola pandemic, the first case was diagnosed in Dallas, Texas, when a man from West Africa visited the hospital on two occasions, having been turned away the first time as just having “the flu.” The original patient died, and two nurses caring for him caught the potentially deadly virus. It is honestly shocking that more people didn’t become ill, as one nurse traveled on a plane while sick, and in another incident, a doctor in New York City who had volunteered in Guinea was also diagnosed. All in all, eleven people in the United States were treated for Ebola (that we know of, anyway) and it certainly wasn’t because of the expert handling of the near-crisis. It was pure luck. There were all sorts of mismanagement. Everything from not requiring a quarantine of travelers returning from the affected area to housing 11 potential cases in a hotel to a ship from Liberia with sick passengers being allowed to dock in New Orleans to the near-disastrous handling of contaminated samples in Dallas, it is an absolute miracle that there was no major outbreak in the US.”[x]
Seeds of an Economic Crash
America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the reimposition of sancitons may have been the right move morally, but it could come with a price. China has already recently begun trading for oil in yuan, getting away from the petrodollar, which as undergirded the US economy since the 70s. They’ve now made it possible for other nation’s to do the same. Russia has also moved away from the US dollar as have other countries. Now the new sancitons could serve as an impetus for more nations to jump on that bandwagon. The Chinese “yuan-denominated oil futures on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange” could serve as a “game changer.” As reported by the Russian Sputnik: “The crux of the matter is that the yuan-denominated transactions are non-transparent for US financial regulators, the economist pointed out, assuming that Chinese and European consumers could use Shanghai as a ‘black box’ to evade US sanctions while buying Iranian crude.” In addition, “While US regulators are transacting in dollars, European envoys are mulling over setting up state credit lines in euros to get around the dollar finance restrictions with the European Investment Bank as a possible source of funding.” All of this could deal a severe blow to the dominance of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.[xi] With less worldwide demand for dollars, it is likely that the Fed would have to offer higher interest rates to attract bond buyers. That would raise the amount of money needed just to serveice the debt – which would be a threat to the Federal budget and hence the American way of living.
