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 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.”
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.
And I will give wonders in the heavens and on the earth,
Blood and fire and columns of smoke.
The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood
Before the coming of the great and awe-inspiring day of Jehovah. – Joel
The Propaganda Machine – How It Works
(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
