Downfall of America and the last witness

//Downfall of America and the last witness

Sunday, October 9

I will prove to be with you.Ex. 3:12.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you had to stand before the most powerful ruler on earth and speak up in behalf of Jehovah’s people? You would likely feel anxious, inadequate, and intimidated. What could you do to add power to your words as a representative of the almighty God? Moses was in that exact situation. Jehovah had told him, “the meekest of all the men on the face of the earth,” that he was being sent to Pharaoh to rescue God’s people from their oppression and slavery in Egypt. As events would prove, Pharaoh was a disrespectful and arrogant man.  Yet, Jehovah wanted Moses to order Pharaoh to let several million of his slaves leave the country! Understandably, Moses asked Jehovah: “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” Moses must have felt inadequate and incapable. But God assured him that he would not be alone.


Egypt was the first world power of Bible prophecy and as such it represents America in prophecy. That Egypt has prophetic value is evident from the fact that Egypt symbolizes the king of the south when it is subjugated by the king of the north during the time of the end. (After Alexander’s conquest Egypt became the original king of the south.) Furthermore, the two witnesses of Revelation, one of whom is depicted as Moses, who turned the waters into blood, are said to be killed “and their corpses will be on the main street of the great city that is in a spiritual sense called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was also executed on the stake.”

Jesus was not executed in Egypt, of course. But he was killed upon orders of representatives of the Roman Empire, which was the then-ruling power in the succession of kingdoms in conflict with Jehovah that began with Egypt.

After Jehovah wrecked Egypt with the series of plagues the land of the Nile recovered and remained one of the great powers until Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest about 1,000 years later. And that event has tremendous prophetic significance in that it foreshadows the downfall of America coincident with the coming of Christ. But, the fact that Egypt was not overthrown by God directly portends that America’s downfall is brought about by a human agency as well. 

In the 30th chapter of Ezekiel the overthrow of Egypt is linked to the day of Jehovah and the appointed time of nations: Son of man, prophesy and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: “Wail, ‘Alas, the day is coming!’ For the day is near, yes, a day of Jehovah is near. It will be a day of clouds, an appointed time of nations. A sword will come against Egypt, and panic will overtake Ethiopia when the slain fall in Egypt; its wealth is taken and its foundations are torn down.”

Similarly, the king of the north is said to rule over the hidden treasures of “Egypt”: “And he will rule over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the desirable things of Egypt. And the Libyans and the Ethiopians will be at his steps.” 

Although the Watchtower has made the preposterous claim the the now-defunct Soviet Union once ruled over the hidden treasures of America, presently the United States is the most indebted nation in the history of the world. Even though the U.S. Dollar has reigned as the world’s reserve currency since the end of the Second World War, there is a move underway to supplant the Dollar and use the Chinese Renmimbi or Yuan as it is also called. As of last year the IMF approved of using the Renmimbi as a reserve currency, in a so-called basket of currencies. In conjunction with the rise of China a new bank has been established to rival the IMF and World Bank – the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank. This is why the U.S. has gone mad, provoking war with Russia and China and threatening to plunge Europe into war with Russia. But a collapse of the financial system could bring about a development where the financial oligarchs behind the central banks foreclose on America – taking its physical gold, silver and everything else of value as collateral for the $20 trillion owed the holders of its debt. 

But as regards Moses being sent to Pharaoh, that evidently foreshadows something too. What? It was a foreshadow of what Christ foretold, when he forewarned his disciples: “But before all these things happen, people will lay their hands on you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name. It will result in your giving a witness. Therefore, resolve in your hearts not to rehearse beforehand how to make your defense, for I will give you words and wisdom that all your opposers together will not be able to resist or dispute.”

First century Christians were certainly persecuted and made to stand before governors and kings —Paul even stood on judgment before Cesar, before he met a martyrs’ death. Jehovah’s Witnesses in modern times have been persecuted and sent to prisons too. But have Jehovah’s Witnesses been brought before rulers for the purpose of giving them a witness to the point that no one has been able to resist their words or dispute their testimony? Obviously not. And Jesus’ instructions to not rehearse beforehand would seem to mean that defense attorneys would not be involved.

Besides, since Christ’s Kingdom has not begun ruling yet it is not reasonable that the rulers would be given a witness at this time, which as Jesus indicated, is an immediate prelude before those who give the witness are handed over to death. But the point is, as Jehovah was with Moses when he stood before Pharaoh, in the same way Jesus will be with his brothers when they stand before governors and kings.

But first comes the crash of the Anglo-American duo, symbolized in Revelation as the mortal wound to the head of the beast. The collapse of the present system will serve as  the unmistakable signal that the Kingdom has begun ruling.

    Here’s the proof…..

      They’ve removed the Revelation book from the watchtower online library, but not only that, even the Daniel’s Prophecy book isn’t there either! I’m wondering if maybe it was realized that several of the interpretations, particularly of the king of the north and south wasn’t so correct.

      What do you think?

      • ewatchman

        I wasn’t aware that the Climax book or the Pay Attention pub were ever online. As far as I remember the online library only goes back to the year 2000

        • LW

          Ok I see.

      • Brian

        From what I have read the Renmimbi will not become the next world reserve currency, it would seem that the SDR’s of the IMF will be the next reserve currency that will relieve the pressures on the existing system that has made the US so indebted to try and maintain it’s position in the reserve currency stakes.
        So basically what we will have is a first, a “one world” currency for all cross border transactions, this is scarier than a nation having the “right” to have world dominance in the currency market as it doesn’t answer to anyone but itself.

  • While the Watchtower and Jehovah’s Witnesses are totally oblivious to the present situation leading up to the crash, in the post-crash world Jehovah will raise up new witnesses. That is apparent from the last verse of the 29th chapter of Ezekiel, which says: “In that day I will cause a horn to sprout for the house of Israel, and I will give you an opportunity to speak among them; and they will have to know that I am Jehovah.”

      Hello Stephan
      Yes after fall and crush of WT there must be new witnesses. All that WT said and did will be discarded. All new witnesses must raise and we are the core of this witnesses. We know much more and more accurate information than they. We must be new witnesses and also there will be new true anointed.

      Blessings to you


    Obama Signs Order Warning About Downed Power Grid, ‘Cascading Failures,’ No Water Supply
    Written by: Daniel Jennings Current Events October 13, 2016 0  Print This Article

    WASHINGTON — President Obama signed an executive order related to space weather Thursday, and in the process acknowledged that solar storms could take out the power grid, water supplies and other critical infrastructure – not only in the United States but throughout the world.
    “Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation,” the order states. “Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents.”
    The executive order, titled “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events,” laid out a plan to prepare the country for a major solar storm. Four years ago, Earth was nearly hit by a storm that could have taken out the power grid, NASA scientists have said. In 1859, a solar storm slammed into Earth and rendered telegraph machines – the most advanced technology of the day – unusable. Northern lights were seen in the Caribbean. It was dubbed the Carrington Event.
    “Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector,” the executive order read.
    The order puts the authority of the president and the White House behind the 2015 National Space Weather Action Plan. It also directs the executive branch to come up with a national strategy for dealing with an electromagnetic storm that disrupts or disables the electrical grid.

    Still, the plan has its critics. Peter Pry, who served on the Congressional EMP Commission and the EMP Task Force, was asked by Off The Grid News Thursday for his comments about the plan. He pointed OTGN to a column he and CIA director R. James Woolsey co-wrote last year criticizing the National Space Weather Action Plan.
    “It is a plan to develop a plan to protect the nation from space weather. The ‘action’ in the ‘Action Plan’ is to do numerous studies before taking any real action that would protect the national power grid,” they wrote in December 2015. “Federal scientific and research bureaucracies, such as NASA and NOAA, make their living by doing studies.”
    The power grid, they asserted, needs to be protected – something the plan does not do.
    Among other things, Thursday’s executive order by Obama:
    Orders all federal agencies to implement the recommendations in the National Space Weather Action Plan.
    Directs federal agencies to work with state, local, tribal and foreign governments, private business and other entities to develop a coordinated response to space weather.
    Orders the National Science and Technology Council to establish a Space Weather Operations, Research and Mitigation Subcommittee to coordinate and oversee research into the phenomenon.
    Orders the Department of Defense to monitor space weather and consider it a threat to future military operations.
    Orders the Interior Department to step up research into space weather and technology designed to counter its threat.
    Orders the Commerce Department to issue regular space weather forecasts and warnings of events.
    Orders the Commerce Department to make real time data about space weather available to everybody.
    Orders the Energy Department to come up with plans to protect the electrical grid from space weather and restore it if disrupted by electromagnetic storms.
    Orders the Department of Homeland Security to issue regular alerts and warnings about space weather.
    Orders the Department of Homeland Security to coordinate responses to space weather and recovery from it.
    Orders NASA to create a national research program designed to improve space weather forecasting by studying the sun and the Solar System.
    Orders NASA to conduct space weather research missions.
    Orders NASA to develop better technology for space weather research.
    “It is the policy of the United States to prepare for space weather events to minimize the extent of economic loss and human hardship,” the order said.
    Whether the executive order actually does anything to protect the power grid remains to be seen.

  • The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate Release
    October 13, 2016
    Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events
    – – – – – – –
    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:
    Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.
    It is the policy of the United States to prepare for space weather events to minimize the extent of economic loss and human hardship. The Federal Government must have (1) the capability to predict and detect a space weather event, (2) the plans and programs necessary to alert the public and private sectors to enable mitigating actions for an impending space weather event, (3) the protection and mitigation plans, protocols, and standards required to reduce risks to critical infrastructure prior to and during a credible threat, and (4) the ability to respond to and recover from the effects of space weather. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) must coordinate their efforts to prepare for the effects of space weather events.
    Sec. 2. Objectives. This order defines agency roles and responsibilities and directs agencies to take specific actions to prepare the Nation for the hazardous effects of space weather. These activities are to be implemented in conjunction with those identified in the 2015 National Space Weather Action Plan (Action Plan) and any subsequent updates. Implementing this order and the Action Plan will require the Federal Government to work across agencies and to develop, as appropriate, enhanced and innovative partnerships with State, tribal, and local governments; academia; non-profits; the private sector; and international partners. These efforts will enhance national preparedness and speed the creation of a space-weather-ready Nation.
    Sec. 3. Coordination. (a) The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in consultation with the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), shall coordinate the development and implementation of Federal Government activities to prepare the Nation for space weather events, including the activities established in section 5 of this order and the recommendations of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), established by Executive Order 12881 of November 23, 1993 (Establishment of the National Science and Technology Council).
    (b) To ensure accountability for and coordination of research, development, and implementation of activities identified in this order and in the Action Plan, the NSTC shall establish a Space Weather Operations, Research, and Mitigation Subcommittee (Subcommittee).

      Interesting…think it may mean anything ?

      • with the upcoming election I think anything is possible. I mean I expected this because if there is some kind of disaster just before the elections Obama gets to stay in office so expect red flag false attacks or other. that’s not to say a real disaster can not happen but you have to admit all these warnings about this or that just before the elections seems kind of Suspicious / questionable to me.

    • Joe Dman

      Yeah, Just insert EMP in place of “Space Weather”. Russia is warning it’s citizens that a nuclear war is about to happen. The U.S. government is now requiring it’s infrastructure to be ready to rebuild after something that produces the same affect of a nuclear bomb happens. But we’ll call it “Space Weather”. And the ignorant citizens will never see it coming because they are too worried about which bathroom less than a half of a percent of the population has an issue with.

      • could be? but with the way things in the world are now going we may very well soon find out that’s for sure.

      • ?POW!

      • Joyce Haze

        Yes Joe, it’s like frosting on the cake, one small corner to finish up on the frosting.and the amazing thing in all this, even the world not knowing JEHOVAH, is totally BLIND!!!! Just like Putins exasperation to reporters “do yo people not see”. It is no longer when, because anyone just getting bits and pieces should be able to discern where this is all headed. And Joe, the fears we all have, ” if we don’t we are liars” should not be what this demonic, insane world is headed for but the fact that JEHOVAH makes the way out, if we’re not hating all the things we are seeing were in trouble. WHY are so many caught up in the trivial and yet the world has gone absolutely insane. Where can our hearts and minds be when we choose to ignore the loving merciful provision our Heavenly Father and his son scream for us to HEAR, with most keeping the headset turned up so loud they can’t hear. Every human being on the face of the earth is about to be awakened, either to total destruction and evil or choosing to listen to JEHOVAHS clear message. I use to believe there were folks that should’nt be destroyed, what I felt were good people, living their lives honestly, not harming others, often time loving and helpful to causes and people, BUT void of any regard to GOD and H is provisions. I also use to think serving JEHOVAH was the difficult task in my life, never feeling I could measure up to HIS standards, his requirements and we never could on our own, for sue but then we come to fully understand that what JESUS did for all, it is possible. Get rid of the screw ball teachings out there (false religion) etc.

        • Joyce Haze

          Dueteronomy 10:12, explains in one verse what is required of us, to love and serve the only one who offers clearly the good in all his creation, what’s not to love, what’s out there that could ever come close to a Heavenly Father who is a representation of nothing less than righteousness in the purest form. He even allows us to reach a point in our lives to work toward doing all things good. He supplies all things necessary to strive for that end means. Again what’s to not Love, a gift only He and JESUS can provide. I’m afraid the worlds good fortune of evil is about to run out. It’ free, it’s out there for each person to grab ahold of but When we beat ours heads against a wall to share, to help others to LOOK, it then becomes completely a heart issue!!!!

          • sally

            Wow I loved that Joyce Haze 🙂
