Commentary on current events from a prophetic perspective

“Be dressed and ready and have your lamps burning, and you should be like men waiting for their master to return from the marriage, so when he comes and knocks, they may at once open to him. Happy are those slaves whom the master on coming finds watching!”

The Scene of this World is Changing

After the Second World War the United States emerged as the greatest nation on earth. But no sooner had the war ended a new war began —the so-called Cold War, which pitted the former allies during WWII, the USA and USSR, against each other in rivalry. Proxy wars were fought in Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan in the late 80’s, but the Cold War antagonists never entered into direct conflict.

kennedy_address_of_the_cuban_missile_crisis_by_nuclearwar3-d78kypyThe closest they came was in October, 1962, when the Soviet Union began to install nuclear missiles in Cuba, 90 miles from Florida. On October 22nd President Kennedy addressed the nation and explained that the U.S. was going to place an embargo on Cuba to prevent the delivery of more missiles that were on ships in the Atlantic heading for the island. Kennedy make it clear he was prepared to invade the island to neutralize the threat.

At the time Americans were terrified that there was going to be a nuclear war. Some people stated building backyard bomb shelters. But war was averted when the Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, backed down and had the missile sites dismantled. Kennedy also secretly agreed to dismantle U.S. missile installations in Turkey.

osama-bin-laden-gettyBut then in the early 90’s something unexpected happened. The USSR was suddenly dissolved. For a decade it seemed that the world might enjoy a prolonged period of peace. But that was not to be. A new enemy emerged in the form of radical Islam. A character named Osama Bin Laden was presented by the media as the new poster boy of evil, a villainous creature intent on destroying America. Then on September 11, 2001 came the attack that demolished the Twin Towers —the very symbol of American economic power and prosperity.

The mainstream media never informed the public that Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda were actually created by US and British intelligence agencies for the  purpose of fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan. After the dissolution of the Soviet empire the Islamic terror apparatus was simply redeployed. The 9-11 attack served as a pretext for a new war —a war without borders —a war against the very Islamic radicals that the West had created.

In reality, the British Empire has had a longstanding scheme in place for world domination. The demise of the USSR and a weakened Russia presented the opportunity to implement the scheme. But because London cannot muster the necessary forces within the UK or even Commonwealth nations, the British subverted the U.S. political, military/industrial complex to do the heavy-lifting. Paul H. O’Neill, the Secretary of the Treasury in the Bush administration, which came into office in January, 2001, was stunned when the subject was brought up of how to attack Iraq at the very first cabinet meeting. Clearly, by 2001 London was ready to use their dumb giant to terrorize and conquer the world.

First came the invasion of Afghanistan, where the phantom bin Laden was supposed to be hiding in a cave. Then came the destruction of Iraq, which had no connection to 9-11, whatsoever. In fact, under the rule of Saddam Hussain there were no jihadists in Iraq. Now the country lies in ruins and has been a virtual training ground for terrorists. Then Libya got the same treatment. It too had been a progressive, prosperous and stable nation. Now it is in ruins and is a recruiting ground for more terrorists. Then using the jihadists who had been recruited and trained in Iraq and Libya, the well armed mercenaries were turned lose on Syria, which had been slated for destruction just like the others.

But in September 2015 something unexpected happened. Russia entered the fray, invited by the nation’s embattled president, Bashar al-Assad, to save the country from meeting the same fate as Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Over the course of the strategic bombing campaign the mercenaries have suffered terrible defeat. The Russian bombardment has destroyed their oil fields and supply lines, their ammunition depots and headquarters. As a result some of the jihadists have no more stomach to fight against the Russians. The Russians have made Syria the proverbial line in the sand.

In response to the turn of events the Anglo-American war machine has gone hysterical. The media, many of which are outlets for MI6 and CIA propaganda, have replaced Osama bin Laden as the face of evil with Vladimir Putin, because he dares to kill the Empire’s mercenaries. And as the Russians have shown no inclination to back down preparations are underway for a direct conflict between the two-nuclear blocs.

In some respects this is October, 1962, all over again. Only this time it is the U.S. that has installed missile systems a few miles from Russia’s border.

putin-s-military-officials-anger-over-raf-go-ahead-to-shoot-down-russian-military-jets-611401Not only that, but the U.S. is provoking war with China over some tiny patches of sand and rock in the South China Sea. And it is highly unlikely that the Empire is going to back down either. Just this week London has escalated tensions by giving RAF pilots the green light to shoot down Russian aircraft over Syria if they feel threatened in any way. So, just as when a lone assassin plunged Europe into war in 1914, a single RAF pilot who might not even come under fire himself, has been authorized to down Russian planes at his own discretion —knowing full well the consequences may be World War Three.

Driving the Empire’s headlong flight into destruction is the certain knowledge that the financial system, over which London presides, is on the verge of total collapse.

Where is the Watchtower at this critical time? It has nothing to say. The visionaries of Bethel see no significance in the present strategic situation that has brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.

Is there anyone out there? 

I can relate to Putin’s frustration. A massive propaganda offensive is driving the world towards catastrophe. I believe the prophet said that truth was being thrown to the earth? Call it a global truth smackdown. And the people who are supposed to be tuned in and sounding the alarm are totally befuddled and clueless as to what’s going on. That’s journalist. And on another level it is the Watchtower. Of course, on the ultimate level, Jehovah is marshaling his forces. Alex Jones is pretty much clueless in that regard. Seemingly, everyone is oblivious. Is there anyone out there? 

The iron and the clay will just not stick together

The recent vote to exit the European Union, the so-called Brexit, has highlighted the great divide that exists between two incompatible forms of government. On the one hand are the people —more specifically the common people.

And by means of the relatively recent invention of democracy, beginning with the 13 colonies breaking from the British Empire and going on to establish the United States of America, the people  have had a voice. It really was a revolutionary idea that the government can only rule with the consent of the people.

On the other hand is very small clique of ultra-wealthy persons who have always sought to exploit and dominate all peoples. They are the source that promotes empire, as in the former British Empire, now more commonly called globalism.

These two antithetical systems are symbolized in the prophecy of Daniel, the second chapter of which portrays a gigantic metallic image of a man composed of various metals.

It is the feet of the image, however, that are made of iron mixed with clay. Here is the way Daniel explained it to Nebuchadnezzar: “And just as you saw the feet and the toes to be partly of clay of a potter and partly of iron, the kingdom will be divided, but some of the hardness of iron will be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with soft clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. Just as you saw iron mixed with soft clay, they will be mixed with the people; but they will not stick together, one to the other, just as iron does not mix with clay.”

Although the British Empire is the iron, it being the successor of the Roman imperial system, and the United States typifies the clay —clay being we “the people,” the iron and clay mixture permeates the entire global system, which is reflected in the globalized system versus the people it seeks to exploit. (Through a century of subversion the United States has in recent years come back under control of the City of London. America is now the leading promoter of the British system, particularly the military of the United States and its perpetual war policy.)

The EU is merely an extension of the British imperial system that has been used to override national sovereignties of member nations. That conflict was most prominent last year when Greece threatened to breakaway from the EU. The successful Brexit represents an impulse just as revolutionary as the 13 colonies breaking from the British Empire and a confirmation of the accuracy of the prophecy that foretold “they will not stick together, one to the other.”

Where is it heading? A union that does not stick together, whether in the so-called United States, or the United Kingdom, or the European Union, is doomed to come apart. At some point, evidently soon, the system will come undone. That seismic event will signal that the conclusion of the system has begun. From the collapse will arise the last kingdom, what Revelation calls an eighth king, which is what is symbolized by the entire colossus that is made to stand upon the feet of iron and clay.

After a brief three and one half year reign of terror the Kingdom stone will crush the entire image. And human rulership will come to a most inglorious end.

Luxury Armageddon Bunkers?

For a limited time only!

Get yours now, before the rush!

People have a strong survival instinct. It is just basic human nature. Jehovah designed into all of his creatures the will to survive. The expression of that instinct among some underscores the critical nature of the times in which we are living.

The so-called “prepper,” survivalist movement that has taken shape since the Y2K debacle, and more earnestly since the financial crises began in 2008, is now going mainstream. Some wealthy individuals are building what can only be described as luxury Armageddon bunkers. They hope to isolate themselves from the hordes of the hungry when the missiles start flying and civilization comes undone.

I suppose it is ironical justice that the ultra wealthy, who are responsible for rigging the system that has impoverished billions and will ultimately reduce what is left of the so-called middle class to paupers, now must take steps to defend themselves from the 99.9%, who also have in them a strong survival instinct.

Although I think it is a good idea to have some supplies on hand for the inevitable crash, ultimately  our survival will not depend upon us. The Bible speaks of the secret place of the Most High. It is not a literal place, like a bunker or fortress. It is surely not the local kingdom hall. The secret hideaway God will provide is the security that comes from having Heaven’s protection. The secret password for entry is the sacred name of God, however it is pronounced in our language.

As regards the Armageddon bunkers, I am reminded of a passage in the Hebrew prophecy of Amos. Speaking of his determination to exterminate every last apostate in Israel, Jehovah said: “Strike the head of the pillar, and the thresholds will shake. Cut them off at the head, and I will kill the last of them with the sword. No one who flees will get away, and no one trying to escape will succeed. If they dig down into the Grave, from there my hand will take them; and if they go up to the heavens, from there I will bring them down. And if they hide themselves on the top of Carmel, from there I will search them out and take them. If they conceal themselves from my eyes on the bottom of the sea, there I will command the serpent to bite them.”

Although the prophecy concerns God’s people it is certainly applicable in a general sense to the world too. Before modern times the passage above must have been understood as hyperbole. But now men can ascend into the heavens in airplanes and spacecraft; they can lurk at the bottom of the sea in submarines. They can burrow deep into the earth in bunkers that are designed to withstand a nuclear blast. But there is no place anyone can go to escape Jehovah’s judgment.

“For he will hide me in his shelter on the day of calamity; He will conceal me in the secret place of his tent; high on a rock he will place me.” Psalms 27:5

“Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High

Will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.”

Enter into the rock and hide yourself in the dust because of the terrifying presence of Jehovah  and his majestic splendor. – Isaiah 2

London’s empire is a bit wobbly

.

 

 

 

.

Winston Churchill“Except in the British Commonwealth and in the United States where Communism is in its infancy, the Communist parties or fifth columns constitute a growing challenge and peril to Christian civilization.” 

-1946, Winston Churchill

People do not realize that London is really the capital of an empire that exerts control to a greater or lesser degree over all nations. And it has for the past 250 years.

While the United States has far greater military capability than the United Kingdom, over the course of the past century it is been the determined effort of the lords of London to infiltrate, influence and ultimately subvert the foreign policy, intelligence capabilities and administration of the United States, in order to use the these to enforce London’s imperial dictates – as Daniel 11:39 foretells regarding the machinations of the king of the north: “He will act effectively against the most fortified strongholds, along with a foreign god.” 

With the emergence of Saudi Arabia as one of the empire’s greatest assets, being a fountainhead of cheap oil and the sponsor of Wahhabism, which is the religious foundation of radical Islamic terrorists, it appears as if the “foreign god” is Allah – he being foreign to Westerners. 

Foremost, London has always sought to prevent the close collaboration of the United States and Russia, knowing that such an alliance would be impossible to control or dominate. During the American Civil War, which was promoted by the British Empire as their favored policy of divide and conquer, Russia stood as an ally of Lincoln when the British threatened to blockade the Union ports of the north. After the war Czarist Russia began to emulate the model Lincoln established by building a trans-Siberian railroad and moving towards the American system of economy. Germany did too, proposing the Berlin to Bagdad railroad.

The British knew their maritime empire was going to be sunk and so began manipulating the nations of Europe into alliances that eventually led to the Frist World War. During that war London financed the Bolshevik revolution that plunged Russia into communism. But during the Second World War Hitler foolishly embarked on an invasion of the vast USSR. His folly led to the USSR and USA alliance that crushed the Nazi war machine.

Even as WWII was winding down the British launched a scheme to pit the USA and USSR against each other to prevent their continued cooperation. One year after the war Churchill came to America and announced that the USSR was the new enemy.

After the dissolution of the USSR in 1991 President George H. Bush announced a new world order had emerged; this, because the UN, including Russia, had signed off on the war on Iraq to liberate Kuwait. For his cooperation in bringing America under London’s authority the Honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Bath was bestowed upon G.H.Bush by the Queen.

But while London’s bankers and their domestic oligarchs were greedily plundering the loot that Yeltsin had served up for them, Vladimir Putin came to power and began clawing back the nation’s treasures his predecessor had given away. Now, Russia has regained her former power and has aligned with China and India, Brazil and South Africa to form the BRICS. Iran stands on the periphery, as do many other nations who are eager to break from the Anglo-American imposed, IMF, World Bank straitjacket. Already the New Silk Road is being constructed, which brings us back to a very similar situation that precipitated WWI.

With the London-controlled financial and monetary system on the life-support of constant money creation through zero and now even negative interest rates, and the banks being the biggest buyers of stocks and bonds to prevent their collapse, London is frantic to take down Russia and China before the British system utterly crashes.

That is why Philip Hammond decries that Russia is not playing by the rules. With America now firmly under the control of the empire’s bankers and political agents, Russia, China and Iran stand apart. Not only has Russia annihilated the terrorists that the empire has spawned, Moscow has let it be known that it will not submit to London’s scheme of global domination. That is in deed “a challenge and a threat” and an unstated declaration of war. 

Britain’s Plot to Destroy Civilization – Carol White, 1980

“The king (of the north) will do as he pleases, and he will exalt himself and magnify himself above every god; and against the God of gods he will speak astonishing things. And he will prove successful until the denunciation comes to a finish; because what is determined must take place.”

 

Look! Jehovah has someone strong and mighty.

Although the video below is almost a year old it highlights a growing trend in recent years in the United States: The militarization of local police forces.

Back after the American Civil War a law was passed called posse comitatus, which made it illegal for the army to be used to keep domestic order. It seems, though, that law has been made irrelevant due to the fact that the police have become more and more like the military. 

Where is it all heading? No doubt when the system crashes the police will be called upon to put down rioters and looters and protect the bankers from lynch mobs. But there is more to it. Ultimately the last kingdom will become an instrument in God’s hand. As foretold in Habakkuk and other prophecies, Jehovah has commissioned a tyrant to inflict punishment. 

Jehovah’s Witnesses ought not imagine they will be passive bystanders. On the contrary, judgment begins with the house of God.

“The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.”
― James Madison

“Look! Jehovah has someone strong and mighty.

Like a thundering hailstorm, a destructive windstorm,

Like a thunderstorm of powerful floodwaters,

He will forcefully hurl it down to the earth.

 The showy crowns of the drunkards of Ephraim

Will be trampled underfoot.”

Isaiah 28

“O Jehovah, you appointed them to execute judgment;

My Rock, you established them for punishment.” – Habakkuk 1

Jehovah will raise his voice before his army,

for his camp is very numerous.

For the one carrying out His word is mighty;

For the day of Jehovah is great and very awe-inspiring.

Who can endure it?” – Joel 2

Blood, Fire & Columns of Smoke

According to the Plough Shares Fund website there are over 15,000 nuclear weapons that are in various states of functionality, the most of which are owned by Russia and the United States. Of that arsenal about 1,800 are in a ready-state of high alert, meaning that they are fully operational and ready to be launched and detonated at a moment’s notice.

Considering all of the barbarous acts and senseless slaughter that has marked the era of modern warfare it is truly amazing that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the only two cities that have been destroyed by atomic bombs. The Cuban Missile Crises in 1962 reportedly brought the USA and the USSR to the very brink of an all-out nuclear war. But since then the danger of nuclear war has diminished, at least until now. 

No doubt the reason that there has not been any use of such ghastly weapons since WWII is because Jehovah will not permit it. We should not assume that will always be the case though.

According to no less an authority than Jesus Christ, mankind will come face-to-face with extinction and only divine intervention will save some. Here is what the prophet said: “And if those days had not been cut short no flesh would have come safe through; but because of the chosen those days will be cut short.”Byington

How it will come about remains to be seen. And certainly no one knows the day and hour when the judgment will begin. But conditions are ripe for war, war on a scale never before experienced.

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

30691-Adolph Hitler

(March 29, 2016) Everyone is aware that the mainstream media has a particular political bias, be it liberal or conservative. Less well known, however, is the influence exerted over the media by the shadow government —part of which are the so-called Intelligence agencies, such as the CIA in the United States and MI5 and 6 in the UK.

Their primary intent, it seems, is to propagandize in preparation for war against Russia and China. To that end Russia and China, along with Iran, are demonized and portrayed as enemies who are seeking to destroy the West. The reverse is actually true.

This sort of anti-Russian propaganda was on full display during the US-orchestrated coup in Ukraine. Because the Nazi-backed new regime immediately outlawed the Russian language, Crimea, which used to be part of Russia until just about 50 years ago and which is predominately ethnic Russian, voted overwhelmingly in a referendum to breakaway from Ukraine and go back to Russia. However, in the West the news media claimed that Crimea was invaded by Russia. Apparently most people still believe it too.

It is not just bad reporting. Journalists are handed a script and they are expected to follow it or find another job. Ultimately the deception will lead the nations into outright war with God Almighty. You likely already know what the outcome of that conflict will be. 

…and it kept throwing truth to the earth, and it acted and had success. – Daniel 8:12b
