Weather Weaponry: A Move to Control the Masses


Who isn’t struck by tragic images pouring out of various regions – recent hurricane damage in the Caribbean, India, and American cities like Houston and Florida?  Have we seen hurricanes before?  Of course, but the modern storms do seem unprecedented in both size and quality, don’t they?

Could modern storms be part of a larger fulfillment of a specific time period prophesied or predicted by the Lord Jesus Christ?

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26)

What is the cause of “the sea and the waves roaring“?  Perhaps we use our cars too often – surely if the world serfdom switched to bicycles, that would alleviate the crisis at hand, wouldn’t it?  Let us consider what can cause weather modification – however, buyer beware, our leaders in Canada are attempting to criminalize this discussion.  The party line around the world is to enforce belief in Global Warming.  Do you believe?

Consider a United Nations treaty which was adopted and signed in 1976-77 called Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques.  What could such a treaty be for – can weather be used as a weapon?  Is weather being used as a weapon?

The 1977 treaty begs many questions, doesn’t it? Well, perhaps the United Nations was just being over-protective and they anticipated the possibility for weather warfare – so the UN drafted the 1977 treaty in case any government might think to weaponize weather.

Let us consider more evidence.

One can easily peruse Stanford’s course on Seismic Inducement online.  According to their About Us page, the “mission of the Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity is to conduct fundamental research on the physical processes responsible for induced and triggered seismicity, to carry out intensive case studies and to develop a scientifically-based framework for seismic risk assessment and risk management.”

Oh well, Stanford only focuses on simple techniques like “fracking” (hydraulic fracturing stimulation), right? They also have an interesting section called  “geothermal energy production”.  Consider the possibility that the earth could be artificially heated via “geothermal energy production” technology.  Could any of this heating technology contribute to Global Warming?

Enter HAARP: High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program.  Innovations like HAARP, sometimes referred to as ” ionospheric heaters”, have been spotted all over the world.  But what do they do?

According to the Stanford VLF Group:

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facility is located in Gakona, Alaska at 62.39$ ^\circ$ N, 145.15$ ^\circ$ W, near mile 11 of the Tok Cutoff Highway. The facility houses many diagnostic instruments for studying the ionosphere, but the highlight is the HF transmitter array. This array consists of 15×12 crossed dipole antennas, which together can transmit a total of 3600kW of RF power at frequencies from 2.8 – 10 MHz (HF, high frequency range).

According to research conducted from GlobalResearch.ca:

“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
— Quote from a TV documentary on HAARP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

Major aspects of the program are kept secret for alleged reasons of “national security.” Yet there is no doubt that HAARP and electromagnetic weapons capable of being used in warfare do exist. According to the official HAARP website, “HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.” The ionosphere is the delicate upper layer of our atmosphere which ranges from about 30 miles (50 km) to 600 miles (1,000 km) above the surface of the Earth.

The HAARP website acknowledges that experiments are conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere.” Some scientists state that purposefully disturbing this sensitive layer could have major and even disastrous consequences. Concerned HAARP researchers like Dr. Michel Chossudovsky of the University of Ottawa and Alaska’s Dr. Nick Begich (son of a US Congressman) present evidence suggesting that these disturbances can even cause tsunamis and earthquakes.

Doesn’t it seem earthquakes are increasing year over year?  Researchers at The Big Wobble have analyzed USGS data, and have painstakingly provided their ominous results in graph form:

Could the steep increase in earthquakes be at least partially due to ionospheric heaters like HAARP?

Consider the words of Jesus Christ regarding a time known as the “latter days” or “end times”:

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

These websites contain only a few examples for what is possible.  To learn more from dedicated researchers and scientists who have poured countless hours into informing the public about weather modification techniques, go to GeoengineeringWatch.org.  There you can find a treasure trove of information including over one hundred patents by number and description of weather modification innovations.

So are we in the beginning of sorrows?  What does this mean for the future?

And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great. (Revelation 16:21)

How much is a talent?  75 pounds or 35 kilograms

We will see 75-pound hail stones.  Are you ready?  While God foretells the future, I believe He has allowed men to carry out their evil schemes, and God uses their innovations to judge a wayward people.

But why would men modify the weather, you may ask?  That brings us to my blog’s title: Weather Weaponry: A Move to Control the Masses.  The end-time globalist agenda of a powerful elite are working to deceive you and me into thinking that our behavior causes climate change.  Thus, we must pay a carbon tax, and eventually our travel will be controlled.  As great King Solomon has said, “there is nothing new under the sun”. The Soviet regime also took great pains controlling travel of men and women.  And the Communist agenda is notorious for making the population poor while the rich “party members” have luxuriant wealth. The same spirits which drove the Bolsheviks in 1917 also drive the Elite in 2017.

And of course, one must consider “population control” when attempting to understand motive for weather warfare.  Historian F. William Engdahl takes on population control in his latest book, Seeds of Destruction.

Population and related food policies of the US Government of the early 1970’s emanated from the halls of the Rockefeller Foundation, from their Population Council and Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and from a handful of similarly well-endowed private foundations, such as the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Foundation. The true history of those organizations was carefully buried behind a facade of philanthropy. In reality, these tax-exempt foundations served as vehicles for the advancement and domination of powerful elite families at the expense of the welfare of most American citizens and of most of mankind. ¹

Eugenics was the foundation of John D. Rockefeller III’s obsession with overpopulation… the Rockefeller Population Council would spend a staggering $173 million on population reduction globally, establishing itself as by far the most influential organization promoting the eugenics agenda in the world. ²

In 1904 Andrew Carnegie’s Carnegie Institute had founded the major laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor, the Eugenics Record Office on wealthy Long Island, outside New York City, where millions of index cards on the bloodlines of ordinary Americans were gathered, to plan for the possible removal of entire bloodlines deemed inferior.  The land for the institute was donated by railroad magnate, E. H. Harriman, a firm supporter of eugenics. This was eugenics, American elite style…

The aim of the index card project was to map the inferior blood-lines and subject them to lifelong segregation and sterilization to “kill their bloodlines”. The sponsors were out to eliminate those they deemed “unfit”.  As early as 1911, Carnegie was funding an American Breeder’s Association study on the “Best Practical Means for Cutting off the Defective Germ-Plasm in the Human Population.” ³

These foundations which sponsored countless population control think-tanks, whitepapers and associations are tax-exempt.  Carnegie gives his reasoning, which speaks volumes as to the personal arrogance of many elite figures in modern history:

“Wealth passing through the hands of the few can be made a much more potent force for the elevation of our race (sic) than if distributed in small sums to the people themselves.” 4

This sense of entitlement likely resides within many of the world’s most powerful people. However, a warning echoes through the ages to Carnegie and all others who yield their souls to  narcissism: For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26)

So what do elite ideas about population control have to do with weather weaponry?  They reveal an alternative explanation for the 400% increase in earthquakes since  the year 1900 (seismic inducement?), massive hurricanes  which hover on ground for days, and tornadoes which stay in place for hours  – highly unusual behavior.

But would men really create weather to kill millions of innocent people?  Consider  how the Elite dealt with Puerto Rico:

The Rockefellers had long regarded Puerto Rico as a convenient human laboratory.  In 1931, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, later renamed the Rockefeller University financed the cancer experiments of Dr. Cornelius Rhoads in Puerto Rico. Rhodes was no ordinary scientist. It later came out that Rhoads had deliberately infected his subjects with cancer cells to see what would happen. Eight of his subjects died. According to pathologist Cornelius Rhoads, “Puerto Ricans are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. What the island needs is not public health work but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8…” Initially written in a confidential letter to a fellow researcher, Rhoads boast of killing Puerto Ricans appeared in Time magazine in February 1932 after Pedro Albizu Campos, leader of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party, gained possession of the letter and publicized its contents.

Rather than being tried for murder, the Rockefeller Institute scientist was asked to establish the US Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah and also Panama, and was later named to the US Atomic Energy Commission, where radiation experiments were secretly conducted on prisoners, hospital patients and US soldiers. 5

How could this injustice prevail?  Nelson Rockefeller was named 1st Assistant Secretary of State for American Republic Affairs in the Roosevelt Administration, and Under Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare for the Eisenhower Administration. The “Shadow Goverment” elite joined the “Deep State” — and the “Health” and “Welfare” Department, no less.

John D. Rockefeller III also joined the fray in Puerto Rico:

JDR III made Puerto Rico into a huge laboratory to test his ideas on mass population control beginning in the 1950’s.  By 1965, an estimated 35% of Puerto Rico’s women of child-bearing age had been permanently sterilized, according to a study made that year by the island’s Public Health Department.  The Rockefeller’s Population Council, and the US Government Department of Heath, Education and Welfare — where brother Nelson was Under Secretary — packaged the sterilization campaign. They used the spurious argument that it would protect women’s health and stabilize incomes if there were fewer mouths to feed. 6

For most Americans and for most of the world, the idea that leading policy circles of the United States Government, acting on the behest of some of the wealthiest families and most influential universities, would deliberately promote the mass covert sterilization of entire population groups was too far-fetched to accept. 7

Is it a far leap to think that if weather weapons exist, prompting the UN to write a treaty in 1977, that the halls of power we have seen in the past would gladly harness the power of nature to destroy whole states and even nations to their sadistic and satanic ends?  I think not.

The Lord has not been taken by surprise.  The culmination of wickedness in the latter days was foretold, and the Ancient of Days had an answer before the world realized it had a problem:

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
 “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
 “I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
 Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
 You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’” (Psalms 2:1-9)

About the end times the first warning Jesus gave was, “take heed that no one deceives you.” (Matthew 24:4b)

The only thing worse than living through 75-pound hailstones is to enter eternity without Jesus Christ. Repent today, and be saved.  Receive the Lord’s finished work of suffering and death on a Roman cross so that you can be saved from your sins.  Tell Jesus, “Lord, I know you are calling me, and  I know that I am a sinner.  Save me from my sins and I will live for you from this day forward.”

We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:1-2)

Perhaps I will be the first Canadian criminal who will stand against the tyranny of Global Warming enforcement.  Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32).  Were I to be jailed for preaching truth this day, I would be paradoxically, the most free.  Jesus also said, “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” (John 12:25)  My passions are not for this fleeting moment, but for the eternal life to come.  And I want to take you with me.  What do you believe?

The Beast: Mystery of Seven Mountains


Apostle John languished in exile on the dusty Isle of Patmos, yet from that very place of solitary confinement, the Lord gave to John visions and understanding which we now know to be the Book of Revelation. Did John’s revelation add further identification to the notorious final “Beast” of Daniel?

After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7)

The interpretation given to Daniel of the fourth beast gives yet more insight into its nature.  Daniel revealed that from this beast would come the notorious Antichrist, son of perdition, man of sin:

He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:23-25)

Enter Apostle John, his dust-ridden body weary from imposed isolation – yet his spirit and soul were greatly moved and inspired – on fire from being present with his Lord, on the Lord’s day.  The Lord revealed to John what would come; a prophetic word that gives hope and understanding to every subsequent generation – especially ours – a world seeming to unravel before our very eyes:

But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.  The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.  “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.  “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.  These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:7-14)

What are the seven, or eight mountains which John saw?  What is the meaning behind John’s revelation?  Walid Shoebat adds valuable clarity from a middle-eastern perspective:

Many of the symbols used during Biblical times are still commonly understood in many cultures today, but they are not easy for many Westerners. Thus, we need a little background information. The Bible often uses mountains as a symbol representing a kingdom or an empire: “It shall come to pass in the Last-Days that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains,” (Isaiah 2: 2-4). In other words, God’s Kingdom will be over all other kingdoms, this is pretty simple. In the east, this language is common…listen to Ahmadinejad of Iran in one of his “I have a dream” speeches: “Do not doubt, Allah will prevail, and Islam will conquer mountain tops of the entire world.”  The mountaintops Ahmadinejad is speaking of are the great kingdoms and governments of the West— Great Britain and America. This is the proper eastern allegoric usage for the word “Mountain”. Many passages in the Bible confirms the usage of this word “mountains” as kingdoms: “My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them,” (Ezekiel 34: 6). God’s sheep, the Jews, were scattered in the Diaspora into many different nations. The word “mountain” is symbol for a nation, empire, or kingdom: “Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, says Jehovah, which destroys all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain,” (Jeremiah 51: 25). Here, God rails against the Babylonian Empire— the “destroying mountain,” which he will make into a “burnt mountain”. ¹

Shoebat went on further to give specific understanding for the seven mountains of Revelation.  They are the seven kingdoms which controlled Israel – the people or the land.  And from this understanding we would come to know Islam as the final revived caliphate – the “beast rising up out of the sea”.  While Rome controlled Jerusalem during the Apostle John’s day, Islam would later claim the land of Israel under the Damascus-based Umayyad dynasty wherein the Al-Aqsa Mosque was built in Jerusalem in 715 AD. The Crusades fought back, but ultimately Islam regained their stronghold via Saladin and his descendants who were known as the Ayyubid dynasty.  Muslims continued to claim Israel as their own for centuries, when under the Ottoman empire in 1537-41, Suleyman the Magnificent rebuilt the city walls of Jerusalem.  The British took control of Israel briefly in 1917, and the United Nations granted the land of Israel back to the Jewish people in 1948.  For more information on the Islamic claim to Israel, see Daniel Pipes’ article, The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem.  Why is all of this history relevant or important to Biblical prophecy? Because one must understand that Islam is the seventh mountain or kingdom which followed the Roman empire.  And the eighth, or the final antichrist kingdom, is “of the seven” – it will come back from the dead after suffering a mortal wound (which occurred in 1924 when Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk abolished the office of Caliph).  How does John’s prophecy relate to these facts, consider this diagram:

Walid Shoebat had occasion to teach this mystery of seven mountains at a 2012 prophecy conference in southern California. To go straight to the teaching, go to ~32 minute mark, otherwise Shoebat first discusses the prophetic statue of Daniel 2,  – for more see my blog: http://endtimesaltandlight.com/islamic-antichrist-a-kings-statue-part-1-a/:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIzyji-eVdY#t=0m33s

Shoebat explains what will be the final “mountain” when God restores the kingdom to His people.

And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.  Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. (Daniel 2:44-45)

And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. (Daniel 2:35b)

Shoebat explains:

From the stone (Messiah) will come the “great mountain” which is the Kingdom of God. The mountain will fill the whole earth. In other words, the Kingdom of God will rule over all the earth. “Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging… Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts,” (Psalms 46: 2-3, 6). If one reads these passages replacing the word mountain with kingdom and waters or seas with peoples, tribes, and different ethnic backgrounds, then it is easy to understand the picture. In verse 6 above, the Bible even gives the explanation— mountains falling (v. 2) are kingdoms falling (v. 6)….Christ spoke of having the faith of a mustard seed, that we can move mountains. Are these literal mountains? No. These are governments and kingdoms. Exactly what the disciples and the first believers did. They eventually changed the Middle East which was all converted to the faith. ²

To this, we say AMEN!  Let us move mountains – governments and kingdoms for the kingdom of God.  Let us bring in the prophesied harvest to the glory and honor of the Lord we love.

The world is spinning out of control, but Jesus is our fortress – and whether we live or die, He is our blessed hope for life eternal.

“A Mighty Fortress is Our God”
by Martin Luther

A mighty fortress is our God
A stronghold never failing
Our helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing
For still our ancient foe
Conspires to work us woe
His craft and power are great
And armed with bitter hate
On earth is not his equal

If we in our own strength confide
Our striving would be losing
Unless God’s man is on our side
The man of God’s own choosing
You ask who that may be
Christ Jesus, it is He
The Lord of Hosts, His name
From age to age the same
And He must win the battle

And though this world, with devils filled
Should threaten to undo us
We will not fear, for God has willed
His truth to triumph through us
The Prince of Darkness grim
We tremble not for him
His rage we can endure
For lo, his doom is sure
God’s word shall overthrow him

That word above all earthly powers
Is evermore abiding
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through Jesus with us siding
Let goods and kindred go
This mortal life also
The body they may kill
God’s truth is with us still
His kingdom is forever

America: A Catalyst for War (Part 1)


Since the inception of the United States of America, her laws have come predominantly from the Judeo-Christian Bible.  The Ten Commandments have made its way into US laws such as perjury, slander, theft, murder and many others.  However, parallel forces of Masonic influence have laid its foundation as well; US currency, and even the layout of Washington D.C. itself reveals its insidious agenda.

While America has been the “land of the free, the home of the brave” for many generations, she has turned a corner, especially since the end of World War II.  In the last seven decades, US foreign policy has unashamedly removed leaders of sovereign countries, and installed US-friendly puppet regimes.  The protocol for regime change can be best understood by investigating US-involvement in the “Color Revolutions” of the last several decades, beginning with Afghanistan.  These “peaceful coups” which brought down sovereign leaders all over the Middle East, Asia and North Africa led to what we know today as the “Arab Spring”.  In this way America has been a catalyst for the radicalization of Muslims worldwide.

ColorRevolutions10

Without America, would Islam still have catalyzed into the force of terror we see today?  I would argue yes, for a number of reasons.  First, as we’ve explored in other blogs, the Qur’an and Hadith contain explicit commands to kill and maim the infidel (unbelievers). Secondly, there have been many Islamic totalitarian invasions throughout history – centuries prior to America’s inception.  Most of those dwelling in what are now Muslim territories in the middle east espoused a diverse set of religious beliefs prior to the entrance of Islam.  Did these countries change religions through discussion or gentle persuasion?  The historical modus operandi for evangelical Islam has been conversion by means of taxation or the sword.  This fact is proven out by historical record; perhaps a good subject for a future blog.

History is full of intrigue and murder. Yet, Jesus Christ said there will come a time that is worse than any other time in history:

For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. (Mark 13:19)

Interestingly by saying “since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time“, the Lord has included the days of Noah when God destroyed the earth with a flood!

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” (Genesis 6:5-7)

How difficult to really comprehend – the end times will be worse than the grievous days of Noah which compelled the Lord to destroy the entire world by flood.  We know from the days of Noah onward, history is replete with horrific bloodshed, yet this time will be worse still.  Indeed, we read about a final worldwide judgment prophesied by John in the book of Revelation which eclipses all other divine judgments.

What can be worse than the days of Noah?

Mao Zedong killed a staggering seventy-eight million people.  We have seen the rampages of brutal tyrants throughout recent history.  The scope of their brutality can be seen in this chart, courtesy of Gawker Media:

DictatorsStats

Some tyrants were ‘on their own’ so-to-speak, but others had help from the usual suspects.  In this very detailed and provocative documentary, the case for US funding of Hitler’s Nazi war machine is made quite easily:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1Qt6a-vaNM

The Bush dynasty made its power, money and political aspirations working for the wrong side of history.  From tire salesman to the bankroll of Brown Brothers Harriman, Prescott Bush helped the international Nazi finance and money-laundering operation catapult Adolph Hitler to success in his slaughter of millions of innocent people.  The Bush sons fared no better, George Sr. headed the CIA which itself has perpetrated countless travesties, as were the Color Revolutions; the CIA even partnered with notorious mafia bosses like Salvatore “Momo” Giancana, Carlos Marcello, Tony Gambino and others to accomplish its nefarious deeds around the world.  And George W. followed in his family’s criminal footsteps; he used a likely-fabricated 9-11 event to systematically initiate endless wars and take precious freedoms from American citizens.  Additionally, financial fraud has abounded within the Bush family:

Former reporter for the Houston Chronicle, Pete Brewton tells of one of the most momentous stories of the past 50 years and how it has been suppressed by the establishment media and the Congress.  His book The Mafia, CIA and George Bush,” shows the incredible complexity of the relationships in the operation of the destruction of hundreds of Savings and Loans at the hands of the CIA and the Mafia, stealing many billions of dollars in the process, and leaving the taxpayers to bailout the banks.

We haven’t seen the end of criminals occupying the highest levels of power.  The Clinton family has their own sordid tales to tell of economic fraud, scandals, and scores of untimely deaths of their associates and political adversaries.

Political tyrants throughout history have committed great slaughter and terrorized the masses.  But has the world ever been in the days prophesied by much of Scripture – namely the end of days?  As before-mentioned, Jesus said the last days would be worse than any period of time before or afterwards.  Could we be approaching the time of the end?  How would we know?

In my blog: Islamic Antichrist: A King’s Statue, we study Daniel 2, wherein the Lord has revealed the end of days, namely a ten-nation confederacy comprised of a revived empire of the same power which conquered the territories of ancient Babylon, Media, Persia, Greece, as well as the Seleucid and Ptolemaic kingdoms.  That great power is undeniably: Islam.

We have seen countless atrocities of Islamic terrorists like ISIS, and collectively despise and condemn their brutality and disregard for human life.  But from where did ISIS come?  In three separate portions of his book The Lost Hegemon: Whom the Gods would Destroy, historian and author, F. William Engdahl explains:

ISIS:  Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, renamed simply Islamic State, whose origins are a product of the US-fostered Sunni vs. Shi’ite civil war in Iraq after 2003. They were trained by the CIA and US Special Forces Command at a secret camp in Jordan and in Turkey in 2012 and ordered back into Iraq and Syria. Their dramatic military victories in Iraq in 2014 gave the pretext for a US bombing campaign in Syria, as well as Iraq. ¹

The origins of ISIS could be traced directly back to the Afghan Mujahideen project of the CIA in the 1980s, where CIA-trained assets and a Saudi named Osama bin Laden, along with his Jordanian associate, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, waged the largest CIA covert operation in history to drive the Soviet Army out of Afghanistan and humiliate Russia. ²

In May, 2015 Judicial Watch, a US legal watchdog group, obtained classified Pentagon documents in a court case that revealed that the US and other select Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria, in their effort to topple Syria’s Bashir al-Assad. In late 2013 al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria made a formal split with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, head of the Osama bin Laden-affiliated al Qaeda in Iraq since 2004 after the US invasion. The new organization under al-Baghdadi was called ISIS or Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. ³

Perhaps America has contributed to the ‘end times’ by fostering a degree of Islamic radicalization never before seen in human history.

Under the rubric of “fighting terrorism,” and, “deterring the resurrection of Islamic fundamentalism,” the Pentagon and the military– industrial complex behind it could easily lobby for more US bases in the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia. That increased US military presence acted, in turn, as a red cape in the face of an Islamic Jihadist bull. The spreading chaos, fighting, and instability sweeping across the Islamic world was, in turn, further justification for increased US and NATO military presence in those very strategic areas. And that US military presence, with its deliberate drone attacks on civilians and brutal treatment of ordinary citizens, made the recruitment by Salafists of young militants— ready to commit suicide for what they were told was the holy cause of Jihad— much easier. 4

Before delving into the US role inside the Color Revolutions, let us briefly explore the role of “catalyst” as it was intended, to produce Life.

The human body is a marvelous wonder; a universe of inner-working parts and processes which collectively shout the praises for its Creator, for those who are listening.  Many processes which we often take for granted, could not occur if even one chemical or enzyme were missing.  Michael J. Behe refers to this idea as “irreducible complexity” in his remarkable book, Darwin’s Black Box.  A compelling example of irreducible complexity is the process of blood clotting, which uses catalysts to perform or initiate specific tasks.

About 2 to 3 percent of the protein in blood plasma (the part that’s left after the red blood cells are removed) consists of a protein complex called fibrinogen.  The name fibrinogen is easy to remember because the protein makes “fibers” that form the clot…. Almost all of the other proteins involved in blood clotting control the timing and placement of the clot.  5

A protein called Stuart factor cleaves prothrombin, turning it into active thrombin that can then cleave fibrinogen to fibrin to form the blood clot.

At this point there’s a little twist to our developing chicken-and-egg scenario. Even activated Stuart factor can’t turn on prothrombin. Stuart factor and prothrombin can be mixed in a test tube for longer than it would take a large animal to bleed to death without any noticeable production of thrombin. It turns out that another protein, called accelerin, is needed to increase the activity of Stuart factor…. So in this step we need two separate proteins to activate one proenzyme. 6

Perhaps the reader can see why the blood-clotting system is called a cascade— a system where one component activates another component, which activates a third component, and so on. Since things are beginning to get complicated, it will help a lot to keep track of the discussion with Figure 4-3. 7

BloodClot_Image3The role of catalyst in the process of clotting the free-flow of blood defies imagination.  The “fibers” coursing through our bodies are waiting for a catalyst to activate them. Catalysts also stop the clotting process once the wound has been sufficiently covered.  Without these catalysts, life would terminate at the first wound or scrape. Indeed our bodies are a breathtaking masterpiece as David, King of Israel declared so many years ago:

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
(Psalm 139:14)

How wonderful it would be if the Lord’s prized creation would focus all creativity, genius and skill to develop what is lawful and good.  This of course begs more questions, what is  inherently “good”, and which law is right?  For instance, some religious laws condone lying and murder of those who disbelieve.  Not all laws are created equal.  While the “common core” school curriculum teaches that descriptors such as “good” and “bad” are a matter of opinion and that morality is relative and subjective, the Bible unashamedly defines good and evil, for those who have “ears to hear“.

So what really is the purpose for ISIS and related terrorist organizations which are funded, equipped and supported by the US?  Engdahl explains further the overarching goal of IS:

On one level, the IS war was about oil, gas, and pipelines to control the vast oil riches of the region, as well as to deny Russia the South Stream gas route to a Europe independent of Ukraine. On a deeper level, the IS war was part of a larger global strategy to defeat the only effective resistance to the creation of a new 21st century universal fascism, a return to the dark times of the Middle Ages but on a world scale, “one world” that would be controlled by very rich Western families whose agenda was total control over the world and reduction of global population through eugenics, wars and terrorism. The Washington war against Syria and the US-created war in Ukraine were two fronts in what, in reality, was one war. It was a war against Russia and, at the same time, a war against China. Those two Eurasian powers, the key nations of the BRICS and of the Eurasian Shanghai Cooperation Organization, represented the center of gravity for the only effective counterweight to a new global fascist barbarism, a barbarism the Pentagon called Full Spectrum Dominance and the American oligarch David Rockefeller called his New World Order. 8

It is this “New World Order” which parallels seamlessly with the prophecies in the Holy Bible which describe the epic eschatological period known as ‘the end of days’.

Obama, Gog & The Antichrist (Part 3)


We have seen many Scriptures which seem to suggest Barack Obama could be a legitimate candidate for the end-time ruler known as Gog-Antichrist in the Judaeo-Christian Bible.  We will know more as other prophetic fulfillments fall into place.

In the meantime, are there any other clues to connect Barack Obama with the Gog- Antichrist-Islamic Mahdi? Many revelations seem to emerge with strange regularity.  Here are but a few.

Before the 2008 elections, the Democratic convention took place in Denver, Colorado. The convention was held in the Denver-Broncos stadium.  Could Obama’s choice of Denver, as well as his stage design be significant to our discussion of the Gog-Antichrist?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oa9JGOFy2uc

THE WHITE HORSE

Above Obama’s “Pergamon Altar” stood the Denver Bronco mascot: the
White Horse

The first of the “Four Horsemen” of the Apocalypse, commonly understood to be the Antichrist will come riding on a white horse:

And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)

Walid Shoebat writes in God’s War On Terror that the white horse is connected to both the Antichrist, as well as to the Islamic Mahdi:

What might be shocking to Western Bible Prophecy analysts is that Islam even confirms what is written in Scripture regarding Antichrist, who is described…as riding on a white horse being none other than Imam Mahdi. The early Muslim transcription of prophet Mohammed’s Hadith, Ka’b al Ahbar confirms this: “I find the Mahdi recorded in the books of the Prophets… For instance, the Book of Revelation says: ‘And I saw, and behold a white horse. He that sat on him… went forth conquering and to conquer.’”

Egyptian authors Muhammad Ibn ‘Izzat and Muhammad ‘Arif then go on to say, “It is clear that this man is the Mahdi who will ride the white horse and judge by the Qur’an (with justice) and with whom will be men with marks of prostration on their foreheads.”…

Our Antichrist is their Messiah— Muslim scholars open the Bible, read about the Antichrist, and see their Savior. This must be seen as quite ironic, if not entirely prophetic. Now you are beginning to see what I was faced with when I began to study the Bible, the True Word of the Almighty God. 6

Among thousands of adoring fans, as Barack Obama stood on the platform of the Pergamon Altar replica, the Biblical Seat of Satan – the Bronco’s white horse majestically stood atop the open stadium at its farthest end as seen here at the first family’s grand welcome to the Democratic Convention.

Could Barack Obama be declaring to devout Muslims around the world:

“Awake, oh Muslims.  I am the one whom the prophets have foretold, and I am worthy to ride the prophesied White Horse.  I will ride, and we will conquer.”

THE RISING SUN IN THE WEST and the OBAMA CAMPAIGN 2008 LOGO

According to prominent Turkish Muslim, Adnan Oktar (a.k.a. Harun Yahya), in his article: “One of the signs of the last day is near: the sun will rise in the west.” Oktar writes the following (Author emphasis):

One of the signs given by our Prophet (saas) in the Hadiths concerning the The Last Day is that the Sun will rise in the west.  The Hadiths say that the end of the world will not come before this sign occurs.

It [the Day of Judgment] will not come until you see ten signs,” and [in this connection] ObamaRisingSunhe mentioned the smoke, the Dajjal, the Beast, the rising of the SUN FROM THE WEST, the descent of Jesus son of Mary…(Sahih Muslim)

“THE LAST DAY WILL NOT COME UNTIL THE SUN RISES FROM WHERE IT SETS. When people see it, people on earth have faith.” (Sunan Ibn Majah, volume 9, p. 4362)

Is the sun rising in the West via Barack Obama?  Could his choice in campaign symbol be an obvious sign to Muslims around the world that he himself is their long-awaited Mahdi?  Could Barack Obama in effect be ‘shouting’ to his people:

“The sun has risen in the West; your wait is over.
I have arrived to usher in the Islamic Caliphate!”

BARACK OBAMA IN HEBREW

Then the seventy [disciples] returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”  And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. (Luke 10: 17-18)

OBAMA WORSHIP

All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:8)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKxa34uJQRk

OBAMA BLASPHEMES THE GOD OF HEAVEN

And he shall speak great words against the most High. (Daniel 7:25a)

Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. (Daniel 11:36)

Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. (Revelation 13:6)

OBAMA IS NAMED AS GOG BY NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCER

This Israeli interview is between Rabbi Rami Levy and 15-year-old Natan.  Natan claims he had certain revelations after he died and went to heaven for fifteen minutes (Published November 4, 2015):

BIBLE CODES

The Bible Codes have received much scholarship and fanfare over the years – both positive and negative.  Codes are purported to exist within the Hebrew text of Scripture at equal distances, and the place where words are formed are often quite interesting. Eliyahu Rips popularized the Bible Codes in 1994:

Eliyahu Rips…is a Latvian-born Israeli mathematician known for his research in geometric group theory. He became known to the general public following his coauthoring a paper on what is popularly known as Bible code, the supposed coded messaging in the Hebrew text of the Torah.

To provide context, and as a way to understand the Bible Codes, consider the Hebrew letters “TORAH” (תוֹרָה) in the first five books of the Bible (which itself is the Torah).

In the first word in Genesis 1:1 (  Bereishit_Word), the last letter is a tav:

Count 7×7 letters, or 49 characters, and the 50th letter is vav. Keep going in this way, every 50th letter, and TORAH is spelled out. Also starting with the first occurrence of the letter tav in the book of Exodus, the word TORAH is spelled out in the same way.

Do the exercise in the final books of the Torah – Numbers and Deuteronomy – and we find the same phenomenon, except that the word TORAH is spelled backwards – towards Genesis.  It appears to be pointing inwards towards Torah, forming a right book-end, so to speak.

So the Hebrew word for “TORAH” seems to form “book-ends” within the five books of  Torah.  Coincidence?  Some believe the premise of these codes can be summed up by Vilna Gaon who predicted that “all that ever was, is, or will be, is contained in the Torah”.

But you may ask, how do the Bible Codes relate to our study of Barack Obama?  A certain passage in Ezekiel contains references to Gog, the Jewish name for Antichrist.  Prophecy- teacher and author L.A. Marzulli, in his Watchers series, showcased several Israeli experts on Bible Codes.  One such expert discovered that every seven letters within the very passage referring to Gog by name (Ezekiel 38:2-3) spells אובאמה or Obama:

Ezekiel38_Gog_Obama

ROCK BAND: THE KINKS

And lastly, perhaps the 70’s-era rock band The Kinks were on to something when they produced their album Misfits. Would God really give warnings through a rock band?

In 1978, The Kinks penned a fairly obscure lyric known as:

Black Messiah

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRdsI0FLPDY

Black Messiah – The Kinks

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine

Everybody talk about racial equality
‘Cos everybody’s equal in the good Lord’s eyes
But if I told you that God was black, what would you think of that?
I bet you wouldn’t believe it

There’s a self made prophet living right next to me
He said the Black Messiah’s gonna come and set the whole world free
He looked at me with his evil eye and he prophesied
And he really believed it

He said a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
And he no liar, ‘cos he has truly heard the word

Everybody talk about racial equality
But I’m the only honky living on an all black street
They knock me down ‘cos they brown and I white
Like you wouldn’t believe it

They say a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world

Everybody talk about racial equality
Everybody talk about equal rights
But white’s white, black’s black and that’s that

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine

Everybody talk about racial equality
Yeah everybody talk about equal rights
But white’s white, black’s black, that’s that
And that’s the way you should leave it

Don’t want no Black Messiah to come and set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world

Everybody got to show a little give and take
Everybody got to live with a little less hate
Everybody gotta work it out, we gotta sort it out

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine

There are many more Scriptures which cannot be assessed yet – until the new temple is built in Jerusalem, for instance.  The Antichrist will conquer many Islamic countries such as Libya, Sudan, Egypt and others.  Indeed many have already been conquered by Islam.

The Antichrist or “Gog” will rule from Turkey.  The current President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has aroused some to consider him as “Gog of Magog” [literally: “Gog of the land of Gog”] by prophecy heavyweights such as the author extensively quoted herein, former Muslim, Walid Shoebat.  Truly, for Barack Obama to legitimately become Gog or the Antichrist, he must rule from Turkey – a feat already accomplished by Erdoğan.  Perhaps, time will certainly tell.

The Antichrist or Gog will make a seven-year peace treaty or agreement which causes the world to think “peace and safety” are finally a reality.  But in the middle of the treaty, he will violate the agreement and set out to conquer Israel.  This final action will cause the real Messiah, Jesus Christ to come back to the earth once again – to fight for his people and usher in the final kingdom under his authority, Amen.

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Words penned by the ancient prophets hundreds and even thousands of years ago are coming to pass with great precision – in our day.  So let us keep our eyes open to see the turnout of events, and continue to compare the reality that plays ‘on stage’ before us against the  timeless and inspired Holy Scriptures.

Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,

Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’  (Isaiah 46:9-10)

Obama, Gog & The Antichrist (Part 2)


And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God. (Revelation 20:4a – emphasis mine)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_MUSRvZvOc

How long has it been since human beings were beheaded — during the late 18th century’s  bloody and infamous French Revolution?  Or was it the early 20th century’s grisly genocide of Armenian Christians, committed by the Ottoman Turks?  John the Apostle foretold a day when beheadings would become commonplace – a day just prior to the Lord’s return:

When He (the Lamb or Jesus Christ) opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. (Revelation 6:9-11)

Journalists have pointed to US involvement with ISIS, and Obama himself has admitted to training ISIS in Iraq.  Have other confessions been made by any credible US insiders?

US support for ISIS has been admitted by officials at the highest levels of power.  In an interview hosted by Mehdi Hasan of Al Jazeera, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the US, Michael T. Flynn, reveals that the Obama administration was warned about the potential for extreme groups to gain influence in the region. However, instead of halting support for the Syrian opposition, the administration took the “willful decision” to support the rebels anyway:

Here is an excerpt from the transcript (see section: SHOW MORE):

Hasan (Interviewer): You are basically saying that even in government at the time, you knew those groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?”

Flynn: “I think the administration.”

Hasan (Interviewer): “So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?”

Flynn: “I don’t know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision, a willful decision.”

Hasan (Interviewer): “A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?”

Flynn: “A wilful decision to do what they’re doing… You have to really ask the President what is it that he actually is doing with the policy that is in place, because it is very, very confusing.”

It appears that similar admissions are being made by John McCain, General Wesley Clark, Hillary Clinton and others.  US funding, training and support of ISIS has been fairly well established.

US ‘hawk’ mouthpieces site justifications like the following for their treacherous ISIS support, and the support of its predecessor, Al Qaeda:

  1. Support for Al Qaeda helped the US defeat the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
  2. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has killed thousands of his own people.
  3. Support of Sunni Muslim ISIS fighters is desirable in order to thwart Shia Muslim groups, Hezbollah as an example. Hezbollah is an enemy to US allies such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel.

Jesus warned his followers:

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles?  Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (Matthew 7:15-20)

If we apply the words of Jesus to the CIA, how would they fare?  What would Barack Obama’s “tree” produce?  Should we really believe the rhetoric that former UK-trained Ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad is the Big Bad Dictator in Syria, and the CIA-backed, Barack Hussein Obama is the peace-loving moral Superior?

Evidence suggests the so-called “Free Syrian Army” supported by the Obama administration is in fact Al Qaeda.  Author, researcher and political commentator Roger Stone writes concerning Bashar Al-Assad’s purported use of chemical weapons:

The chemical attacks on Syrian citizens on 21 August 2013 was meant to justify lobbing cruise missiles into Syria. Obama was ready, but Americans were not. And when the ploy was debunked by a 50-page dossier the Russians provided to the UN, they [the Obama Administration] resorted to “Plan B”, which was the creation of ISIS by the DIA.

The chemical weapons are widely believed to have been provided to the “rebels” by Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia, to whom the Bush family refers as “Bandar Bush”. But recent releases of Hillary’s emails suggest that she was directing the transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria and chemical weapons may have been among them.

Who are we to believe?  Whose “fruit” will remain?

These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
 
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
 
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
 
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16-19)

Barack Obama once joked about killing the Jonas Brothers, when he gleefully declared to a laughing audience, “I have two words for you, ‘predator drones.’ You will never see it coming.” and “you think I am joking”. Perhaps we should take Obama jokes seriously. The Washington Times wrote an article report which claims: “Obama-led drone strikes kill innocents 90% of the time” (emphasis mine).

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. (John 10:10a)

A book published in 2014 by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Double Down: Game Change 2012, claims President Obama has boasted to his White House aids: “I am really good at killing people“, and that our Nobel Peace Laureate is “proud” of killing people.

Apparently killing innocent men, women and children are easy for the President, however, killing ISIS and her accomplices are a little more difficult to swallow for the Peace Laureate.  US Department of Defense admits to sending “warning” leaflets to truckers carrying ISIS-controlled oil:

In Al-Bukamal, we destroyed 116 tanker trucks, which we believe will reduce ISIL’s ability to transport its stolen oil products.

This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by — we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude….

As you can see, it’s a fairly simple leaflet, it says, “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them.” A very simple message.  And then, also, “Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life.”

And so, these are the leaflets that we dropped — about 45 minutes before the airstrikes actually began. Again, we combine these leaflet drops with very low altitude passes of some of our attack aviation, which sends a very powerful message.

Much more can be written about US involvement inside the phenomenon we know as “Arab Spring”. Could it be safe to say that Barack Obama had a strong hand in the various Islamic countries falling to CIA-style regime changes, and many with a particularly Islamic transformation?

Why does this matter?  How does this relate to Gog or the Antichrist? We can see that indeed one can be simultaneously, “a conqueror bent on conquest” as well as project an image of peace, “and by peace“, the conqueror “shall destroy many“.

Let us delve further into the attributes of Gog, whom some believe is the Old Testament version of the New Testament: Antichrist.

Walid Shoebat, former Muslim and Palestinian Terrorist, left Islam in 1994 after studying the Holy Bible with the expressed intention of disproving its text.  Shoebat’s background in his own words can be found here: www.shoebat.com.

Shoebat wrote a very thorough expose, God’s War On Terror in which he reveals how “Gog” and the “Antichrist” in the Bible are one and the same person.  Additionally, Shoebat posits that the Gog-Antichrist character has the very same attributes as the Islamic “Mahdi” – Islam’s awaited “Messiah” figure.  To be fair, Shoebat does not suggest that Barack Obama is the Mahdi, nor by extension – the Gog-Antichrist.  God’s War On Terror covers only the Antichrist system or kingdom, which Shoebat suggests is his former religion:  Islam.

THE ANTICHRIST AND WOMEN

He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.  But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. (Daniel 11:38)

There are two clues in this verse about the Old Testament character “Gog”.  First, He shall not regard the desire of women.  And second, he shall regard neither the God of his fathers, nor any god; he will replace them with the “god of fortresses”.  Let us explore these prophetic descriptions separately.

He shall regard neither…the desire of women. (Daniel 11:38a)

About disregarding women’s desires, Walid Shoebat writes:

The Antichrist will have no regard for women’s rights. Women will have no voice in his empire….We have already seen Muslim countries in which women struggle to gain their desired rights. In Saudi Arabia, women struggle to acquire rights to drive a car. In Afghanistan, women struggle to gain a desired education. In Turkey, women struggle with laws attempting to gradually re-institute the Hijab….

Everywhere in the Muslim world, women struggle to gain rights to be equal to their male counterpart. Women’s rights in Islam are literally a fraction of what their male counterparts possess. According to Islamic law, a woman only inherits half of what a male inherits. In court, it takes the testimony of two women to equal the testimony of one man because Mohammed declared that women have half the mental capacity of a man. 4

Shoebat’s interpretation resonates with the intended meaning of the verse, but I also believe as some other Western scholars have suggested, but something Shoebat does not believe.  Namely, the Antichrist will be homosexual.

Shoebat’s interpretation focuses on the “woman’s desire” itself.  Indeed, the Antichrist will not honor or regard the woman’s desire (“desire” as the object of “woman”: a possessive noun).  But additionally, when used as an expression (ie: ‘the state of desiring women’), the text can also read, “He shall not regard: “the desire of women” or “living straight” using modern vernacular. In this way, the Bible may contain a double-meaning for the verse: He shall regard neither…the desire of women.

Is Barack Obama a homosexual?  How is it that the President twice refers to his wife as Michael?

Many scandals have plagued the President; they seem to follow him from Hawaii to Chicago.  But perhaps none are as revealing as his alleged relationship with Larry Sinclair.

Lawrence W. Sinclair authored the book, Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?  Sinclair claims to have had sexual encounters with then Illinois Senator, Barack Obama during which they took cocaine. Sinclair decided to confront the campaigning Senator when he heard Obama claim drug abstinence since his “university days”.  After leaving a message for the Barack Obama Democratic Campaign team, Sinclair allegedly received phone calls in return,  specifically from a man named, “Mr. Young”.  It was during one of these phone calls that Mr. Young indicated his relationship with Barack Obama was sexual in nature.

As it would turn out, Mr. Young was one of two men connected to Obama who were murdered just before the Obama campaign stepped into full swing. According to this post, three gay men attended Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, the same church attended by Barack Obama in Chicago.  Each of the three man died in rapid succession, just before Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Campaign:   

Larry Bland was murdered execution-style on November 17, 2007;
Donald Young was murdered execution-style on December 24, 2007;
Nate Spencer reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV on December 26, 2007.

Donald Young had been the Choir Director of Trinity United Church of Christ. The same post continues to tell the story of his mother:

Norma Jean Young revealed to The Globe that her son Donald, who was openly gay, was a “close friend” of Obama. Mrs. Young also believes the Chicago Police Department has not placed a high priority on finding the killers of her son….[She] told The Globe that, “There is more to the story,” adding, “I do believe they are shielding somebody or protecting someone.”

So there is credible evidence Barack Obama himself may be gay, and for the first time in American history, the US now strong-arms nations around the world to accept and even champion gay rights, using US foreign aid as his tool of choice.  Barack Obama murders innocent people around the world with predator drones, and he has been instrumental in lighting the Middle East on fire with support for ISIS, arguably the most heinous and barbaric force since the middle ages.

But you may ask, isn’t Barack Obama a professed Christian?  Remember Jesus’ words about knowing a person by their fruit; everything Obama does – his works – or the “fruits of his tree” benefits, promotes and glorifies Islam.  And his words are not far behind:

THE GOD OF HIS FATHERS

He shall regard neither the God of his fathers…nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.  But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 

Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (Daniel 11:38-39)

Gog will not “regard any god”.  You may rightly ask, how then can he be Islamic?  Shoebat explains:

Many Westerners believe that the Antichrist is an atheist…How could the Antichrist be an atheist if the next verse says, “he shall honor the God of fortresses?” (Daniel 11: 38) How does Antichrist honor a god of fortresses, or a god of war?…The Antichrist will show no regard for any other god (v. 37) except this foreign god whom his ancestors did not know, but which he will “advance his glory” [v. 39] by war. The text logically speaks for itself….What do Westerners think when they see the most important creed of Islam carried through their Jihad that says there is no god but Allah?

The Antichrist cannot be an atheist. This is also confirmed by the prophet Habakkuk. There the Antichrist breaks the peace treaty and proclaims war in the name of his god: “Then his mind changes and he transgresses; He commits offense, ascribing this power to his god” (Habakkuk 1: 11). He claims strength from his false god who promotes violence. The vision is “for the End-Times” (Habakkuk 2: 3)….

They want to put down all other gods and religions throughout the globe and advance their god through war. The text is clearly portraying what we see in Islam today; even when we read that he declares war “against the strongest fortresses.” What could that mean except what it plainly says— to declare war against the most powerful nations on earth? Jihadists already declared war on Europe and the U.S. However, the West seems oblivious to this fact. Who else could be as maniacal as Muslim fundamentalists to declare war on the powerful West? And it is all for the purpose of advancing their god, Allah. This is exactly what we see. How did the Bible predict all of this? Either the prophets guessed it perfectly, or indeed, there is an omniscient God. There is no third choice. 5

Indeed.  Prior to Islam, the religions in the modern Islamic Middle Eastern countries ranged from polytheistic, to Coptic Christian in some areas of Egypt, Tengrism a type of Shamanism, and then Christianity in Turkey to Zoroastrianism in Iran. Interestingly, Kenya is considered a Christian country. Kenya is 90% Christian, and 10% Islamic.  Assuming that Barack Obama’s father is Kenyan, he truly regards not the “God of his fathers“.  Islam, the god of war took root, and it will indeed propel the Antichrist whose god “his fathers did not know”.

Does the Bible give any indication of the name of the Antichrist, either in word or code?  Is Obama worshiped as a “Messiah” or religious figure?  We will explore the answers to these questions and more in the final installment of Obama, Gog & the Antichrist.

Obama, Gog & The Antichrist (Part 1)


BObamaCould Barack Hussein Obama fulfill the most notorious and villainous roles in the Holy Bible?  Were the ancient prophets warning about the American President whom his own Secret Service nicknamed “The Renegade”, which translates as “The Lawless One” (a title of the Antichrist in 2 Thessalonians 2:8)? Some Christians have come to this conclusion, yet many disagree.  Is there any merit to the claim?  Let us take a journey to discover if there is any truth to this most severe and sensational claim about Barack Hussein Obama, perhaps the most enigmatic man in human history.

We will visit everything from Antichrist-worship to the veneer of peace which the Antichrist will use to deceive many.  We will touch on the kingdom of the Antichrist, and delve into Scriptures and spiritual experience to explore the possibility that the one who is widely familiar as US President, may in fact become the one foretold in passages penned by Old and New Testament prophets, passages some of which were written thousands of years ago.

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. (Daniel 8:23)

Do we really know anything about President Obama’s background for sure?  Some of his vital documents refer to him as Barry Soetoro.  He has yet to release any of his educational records. The identity of his real father is the subject of much controversy.  The supposed birth certificate that surfaced in 2011 is arguably a hoax.  A damage-control website exists fully-dedicated to the dispelling of all the pesky “right-wing” Barack Obama “conspiracy theories”.  The website, obamaconspiracy.org, was created by Kevin Wayne Davidson of South Carolina.  Interestingly, Davidson and Alvin Onaka were colleagues at the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems or NAPHSIS in Washington DC.  Alvin Onaka’s critical signature “validates” Obama’s controversial birth certificate abstract.  Interesting connection eh?   Even in his defense, Obama conspiracies abound.

The Bible says that Jesus Christ is a priest “according to the order of Melchizedek” who is described in the book of Hebrews:

For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God…, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,”  without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. (Hebrews 7:1-3)

Could the parental ambiguity of Barack Obama be an allusion to the ambiguous origins of Melchizedek, the priestly prototype for Jesus Christ?

WARS AND RUMORS OF WAR

I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. (Revelation 6:2 – emphasis mine)

A bow with no arrows?  Could this white-horse rider “bent on conquest” project an image of peace?

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many. (Daniel 8:25a – emphasis mine)

Barack Obama held office as President of the United States for less than eight months when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.  Unusual?  What great work of peace had young Barack accomplished? The world is still wondering the answer to that question.

Barack Obama is one of only three sitting US presidents in her 240-year history to be awarded with such a distinguished honor as Nobel Peace Prize.  Strange?  What does it mean that the Antichrist “by peace shall destroy many“?  Could one say that Peace Laureate, Barack Obama is “a conqueror bent on conquest”?  Let us examine this idea further.

Consider the “Arab Spring” uprisings.  Why are so many Islamic nations seemingly all at war in unison – why so many internal conflicts? The CIA’s notorious “color revolutions” come to mind. While the western media has vilified the leadership of Egypt, Libya and Syria for example, and perhaps there exists truth to the existence of some corruption, the fact is – each of their countries have been at peace for many decades.  Why the collective unrest, now?  And what if anything does that have to do with Barack Obama and/or Biblical prophecies?

Let us consider the backdrop of the United States’ military strategies prior to the 2008 elections. Many nations have endured internal tension and struggle, often aided and abetted, and even initiated by the United States.  Truly, for decades America has had its hand in ousting many sovereign leaders of other nations.  The CIA, CFR, Pentagon and other elite US agencies and organizations, often financially backed by Saudi Arabia et al., have implemented “color revolutions” or choreographed “peaceful” coups around the world. Often CIA interference went unreported by western media, but if there was press coverage, news anchors would dutifully paint the covert operations as “popular uprisings”.

The CIA, George Soros, the RAND Corporation — with funding from Saudi Arabia – all the “usual suspects” have caused upheaval in Russian and Chinese territories, as well as oil-rich regions around the world for their own political gain (to control energy, and dismantle Russia and China as potential superpower rivals to American hegemony).

ColorRevolutions10

The CIA organized these coups to effectively install US-friendly puppet leadership in countries around the world.  Largely a goal of the US government for many decades has been nuclear supremacy, and control of energy (for consumption, as well as preventing nations from acquiring their own sources of energy). For decades, American government “hawks” have worked to install military bases and missile deployment systems around the world in an ambitious aim to achieve US “first-strike” capability, all in the name of spreading “democracy”.

Just prior to Obama’s first-term election, the US Pentagon outlined their newest strategy in an official report.  According to prolific war historian and author F. William Engdahl:

Full explanation for this new deployment [AFRICOM: plan to deploy a separate military command within striking range of some 53 countries on the African sub-continent] lay in the Pentagon document, 2008 Army Modernization Strategy.  That document stated that the objective of US Army strategy was to span and dominate the entire universe, not just the globe.  It called for ‘an expeditionary, campaign-quality Army capable of dominating across the full spectrum of conflict, at any time, in any environment and against any adversary — for extended periods of time.’  The document went on, ‘the Army must concentrate its equipping and modernization efforts on two mutually supporting ends — restoring balance and achieving full-spectrum Dominance.’

No other army in history had had such ambitious goals.

More relevant, Army Modernization envisioned that the United States, for at least the next ‘thirty to forty years,’ would be engaged in continuous wars to control raw materials.¹ (emphasis mine)

It may come as a surprise to some that many years prior to the Obama Administration, the CIA with support from Saudi Arabia and others have been fomenting political Islamic Jihad, and Turkic Ottoman revival – for decades within the notorious Color Revolutions. The CIA has clearly desired to foster Islamic fervor among its Jihadist warriors, as when they printed a special translation of the Qur’an:

The Koran translations were done on orders from the CIA with money funneled through USAID, nominally a State Department foreign aid program that was often used to disguise CIA-financed projects. The translations were done at the University of Nebraska’s Center for Afghanistan Studies in Omaha.

As a part of the Center’s CIA projects, they prepared school textbooks for Afghan and other Central Asian Muslim children riddled with pictures or drawings of guns, bullets, and mines explicitly promoting Jihad violence against Soviet soldiers. The following was a typical example in a children’s math textbook: “If out of 10 atheists, 5 are killed by 1 Muslim, 5 would be left.” Besides the Jihadist graphics and examples, the books contained Islamic tenets and verses from the Koran. ²

As heinous and twisted as some within the CIA, Pentagon, and their accomplices were and still are today (read: Syria) – truly, evil is too soft a word – yet the Antichrist promises to be exponentially more sinister and egregious.  About the times of the Antichrist, the Bible says:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:21)

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4)

Ironically, the Cadillac which carries U.S. President Barack Obama has been satirically named, “The Beast”:

During his official visit to Malaysia from April 26-28, 2014, U.S. President Barack Obama will be protected by his bodyguards and service agents as well as the presidential state car, also known as Cadillac One or by the agents as “The Beast.”

So the “Lawless One” rides “the Beast”, according to White House Secret Service personnel.  A foreshadow of things to come?

The motive for pre-Obama administrations to arouse Islamic sentiment into a religious frenzy seems to be a means of achieving political goals, rather than a real Islamic understanding, belief and  desire to lead Muslims to victory for the Islamic cause itself. Engdahl writes regarding the CIA-induced devastation of Afghanistan from 1979-2007:

For Pentagon planners, it was less about Holy War and more about an excuse to build permanent bases in Central Asia for the first time since the Cold War, bases that could threaten both China and Russia. ³

To explore this further, see my blog series, America: A Catalyst for War.

So the nefarious stage has been set, at least since 1979 when the CIA orchestrated the Islam-centric uprising in Afghanistan.  Horror and sorrow have followed like an unbroken stream in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia, ironically in the name of  “spreading democracy”.

Into this crucible of unmitigated power walks Barack Obama, taking office on January 20, 2009.  Has Obama managed to channel the power and agency of the United States into restoring an Islamic Caliphate, while having a personal stake in the game?

The word “caliphate” is derived from the word caliph or “successor”.  The Ottoman Empire, the last Caliphate was dismantled in 1924:

The last caliph was in 1924, when the office was abolished by then-Turkish leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, a secular nationalist who wanted to reduce the role of religion in the state.

Has Obama focused with laser-like precision, all available US technology, military, financial and professional resources towards the Middle East and North Africa, for his own religious and political reasons?  Has Obama taken the diabolical CIA plans to use Islam a significant step further?  Does Barack Obama have a personal stake in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire?

We will continue to explore these questions further.

To consider how the Bible predicts an Islamic antichrist in particular, see my series on Islamic Antichrist: A King’s Statue and discover the relationship between Islam and the kingdom of the Biblical Antichrist.

Having that said, lest one think that an Islamic Antichrist will be boxed into a sort of noble loyalty to Islam, the Bible is clear that many will be deceived by the perceived peace-making deeds of the false Christ.  From this we can infer the Antichrist will likely destroy and sacrifice millions of his own to deceive the Jews and Christians into believing he can be “trusted”.

Satan is loyal to no man – to no beloved human being created in the image of the most high God; “the thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” (John 10:10a)

His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power;
He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive;
He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.  (Daniel 8:24)

 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. (Revelation 13:7)

US Secretary of State John Kerry declared “ISIS is committing genocide” in Syria and Iraq against “Christians, Yazidis and Shia Muslims”.  The European Union has also recognized the brutal genocide against Christians, Yazidis and other minority groups at the hands of  ISIS.  But where did ISIS come from, and how have they received funding, training, and power?  We will explore the answers to this very important question.

According to the CATO Institute, Barack Obama has spent more on military buildup, on average, than any other President in US history – including George W. Bush – not bad for a former Nobel Peace Prize recipient.  Do we feel the contradiction, my friends?

MilitaryAvgSpendingPresidents

The cost to the American taxpayer as of October 2015 according to CNBC was 219.7 million dollars.  Additionally, the US drops pallets in aid to ISIS (by mistake, as the narrative goes) – all to support groups who dismember children, drown, slaughter, set on fire, and mercilessly behead Christians and minorities, Shia Muslims (as well as the less-committed Sunni Muslims to the Qur’anic command for jihad or “holy war”) all over the Middle East and Africa. Indeed, ISIL lives up to its provocative name: Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (territories of the former Ottoman Empire).  Why does Obama prefer to use the word ISIL instead of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)?  Could he be covertly declaring the future of ISIS?

For Obama, could peace be the ultimate ruse? Internally in the United States, many see his practices as divisive and polarizing.  Consider the comments told to CNSNews by the African-American Democrat Sheriff in Milwaukee:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said he believes President Barack Obama has damaged race relations in the United States and that he looks forward to when “we can finally turn the page on the Obama reign of terror” and heal some of the divisions Obama has created during his presidency.

With this context as a backdrop, let us now investigate the Arab Spring as described by The Economist in: The Rites of Spring:

<b>arab spring timeline</b>

He shall stretch out his hand against the countries. (Daniel 11:42a)

EGYPT

Was Barack Obama behind the fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak?  Was Obama in full support of Muslim Brotherhood President Muhammad Morsi – even after as many as 33 million Egyptians protested the Morsi Administration?

Egypt-Obama-MorsiDemonstrators carried hand-made posters denouncing Obama and his pro-Muslim Brotherhood Cairo Ambassador, Anne Patterson.” (F. William Engdahl, Global Research, July 4, 2013).

According to Prof. Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research in his article, Was Washington Behind Egypt’s Coup-d’Etat?:

From the outset of the “Arab Spring”,  the Obama administration’s objective was to undermine secular governments in the Middle East and North Africa and install a model “Islamic State”, which would serve US geopolitical and corporate interests

As we shall see, transforming countries in the Middle East from secular to Islamic – this appears to be a decisive goal of the Obama Administration, recognized by journalists on both sides of the aisle, liberal and conservative alike.

LIBYA

Most are aware of Hillary Clinton’s role as Secretary of State for the Obama Administration during the infamous Benghazi scandal which left the US Ambassador to die with three other Americans, while US weapons were transferred into the hands of Islamic Jihadists.  Did Mrs. Clinton work in a vacuum?  According to the Washingon Times, in October 2015:

Reuters reported in 2011 that President Obama signed a special presidential directive that authorized covert U.S. action to destabilize Gadhafi and stand up a new regime, up to and including facilitating weapons transfers if it was deemed in the U.S. interest.

The New York Times, quoting anonymous officials, reported a year later that the Obama administration gave its secret blessing to some weapons shipments to Libyan rebels routed through Qatar during the height of the country’s revolution.

Is it a coincidence that ISIS received the “weapons transfer” as well as much of Libya’s oil production?

ISIS has already secured the route to the “oil crescent”, which encompasses all the producing fields in the southern desert. It’s done this by taking control of the desert town of Nufaliya, which is about 50 kilometers from Es Sider.

At stake here is Libya’s 48 billion barrels of estimated reserves—the largest in Africa. The civil war alone has shut down over three-quarters of Libya’s production, which might be good for the current oil supply glut, but it’s very bad for Libya and regional stability.

IRAQ

Obama has publicly admitted to training the notorious Islamic State group in Iraq:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOYm_CCxxKk

“Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities?’ (Isaiah 14:16-17a)

PAKISTAN

Has ISIS confessed to receiving support from the US? The Tribune Express reported the following confession made by Yousaf al Salafi in January 2015:

ISLAMABAD: Yousaf al Salafi – allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish – has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States….

“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source privy to the investigations revealed to Daily Express on the condition of anonymity.

SYRIA

As above-mentioned, ISIS operative, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was “getting funding – routed through America – to…recruit young people to fight in Syria.”

ISIS or ISIL as the President prefers to call them, has received state-of-the-art U.S. technology and machinery.  Plentiful video evidence exists of ISIS fighters sporting American Humvees, Toyota trucks, Abrams tanks, Howitzer mobile gun systems, and AK-47s.

Who can forget the images of Damascus, Syria?  Damascus is one of the few cities in the world that preserved its name since it was coined in the 15th century BC.  It is one of the oldest continually-inhabited cities in the world (since 2000 BC).  Yet, it now appears — over 4,000 years later — that the prophet Isaiah’s prophecy for Damascus is coming — and in large part — has already come to pass in our day.

Truly, Isaiah foretold her fate:

The burden against Damascus.
“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.”

(Isaiah 17:1)

America’s bloody fingerprints are found all over the world, sadly.  Will God forgive my country?

And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments,  we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. 

Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land.  O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face….

O Lord, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away … Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant….  O my God, incline Your ear and hear…for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.”  (Daniel 9:4-19)

Resistance: The Path of Light (Part 5)


candle-light_2Father, may we gain wisdom by following your ways, and cherishing your Word.  May we choose to be led by the Good Shepherd.  And may our discernment increase, that we might distinguish between good and evil.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18)ForsakenLaws_5h

Is it a small thing to forsake the law of God in favor of Sharia, or the ever-changing whims of the New World Order?  The Antichrist will attempt to do just that:  He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25 – emphasis mine)

What will the outcome be for those whose laws are changed? Isaiah foretells great sorrow and tribulation just before the great and terrible day of the Lord – the coming of Messiah.  Isaiah laments the impending judgements:

The earth mourns and fades away,
The world languishes and fades away;
The haughty people of the earth languish.

The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants,
Because they have transgressed the laws,
Changed the ordinance,
Broken the everlasting covenant.

Therefore the curse has devoured the earth,
And those who dwell in it are desolate.
Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,
And few men are left.

From the ends of the earth we have heard songs:
“Glory to the righteous!”
But I said, “I am ruined, ruined!
Woe to me!
The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously,
Indeed, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.”…

The earth is violently broken,
The earth is split open,
The earth is shaken exceedingly.

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
And shall totter like a hut;
Its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
And it will fall, and not rise again.

It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord will punish on high the host of exalted ones,
And on the earth the kings of the earth.

They will be gathered together,
As prisoners are gathered in the pit,
And will be shut up in the prison;
After many days they will be punished.
 
Then the moon will be disgraced
And the sun ashamed;
For the Lord of hosts will reign
On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
And before His elders, gloriously. (Isaiah 24:3-23 – emphasis mine)

What is the answer?  The Bible will come to pass, just as it is written.  But for you and me, we need to consider our ways.  How many sins have we committed, either by commission or omission? The Bible says that not one person is righteous, no not one.  We have all sinned before God, who is perfectly holy, just, and eternally righteous. Does the Lord wink at the sins we commit?  Jesus warns:

If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— where ‘their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’

And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— where ‘their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’

And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire—  where ‘their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’ (Mark 9:43-48)

Without Christ, we are a slave to sin.  We have no hope, apart from the one who took all of our sins upon Himself.  To those who receive Jesus’ gift of eternal life, the Apostle Paul says:

And you, being dead in your trespasses…, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. (Colossians 2:13-14)

At the celestial trial for those who are “in Christ”, Jesus will stand as primary witness to our innocence – having paid in his sacrificial death the penalty for our sins.

Conversely, those who choose to ignore and/or utterly reject the Lord Jesus and His gift of salvation, will stand on their own behalf during their day of judgment.  The acts and deeds of these unfortunate souls will be measured against the perfect and holy Law of God, miserably found wanting.

Repent!  The Blessed Savior is the hope of mankind.  Jesus Christ, who was the light of the world in physical form, has passed the baton to his “Bride”, the Church.  We carry his light in this ever-darkening world.

Let us not forsake his eternal commandments for a cheap substitute.  The Bible warns, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 16:25) Let us choose life.

What has become of many Christians in our world’s history who dutifully pointed the way to Christ? In 64 AD, Nero set some on fire to serve for evening lights.  Throughout the centuries, many unyielding, courageous and faithful saints were burned at the stake for their stubborn allegiance to the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.  And today, ISIS sets many aflame because they will not renounce their faith in the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.

Satan works to “kill, steal and destroy”, but Jesus prepared us for these treacherous days: “you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 5:22)

The Lord knew it would not be easy; he himself died a horrific death at the hands of hateful men. He was the true light of the world.  The One who resisted sin and evil in all of its deceptive forms. For those with eyes to see, Jesus continues to shine like the sun. And his followers carry a measure of his divine light, especially seen during times of great pressure.

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

THE SACRIFICE LAMB
(Joel Chernoff)

Have you ever heard Messiah has come?
It says in His Word to cleanse every one
Atonement He made iniquity bore
That we can find life in Him evermore

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
Salvation has come to the world
God’s only Son to the world
Jesus the one for the world Yeshua is He

The prophets of old speak much of Messiah
His death is foretold the purpose is clear
Isaiah did say ’twas for an atonement
To give us a way that leads not to death

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
Salvation has come to the world
God’s only Son to the world
Jesus the one for the world
Yeshua is He

So brothers of mine look not to yourselves
For we are but one we all need His help
We’ve broken the Law but He paid our debt
That we can find life by Yeshua’s death

The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain
His Blood on the alter a stain
To wipe away guilt and pain
To bring hope eternal
So final atonement has come
And brought us new hope by God’s Son
If you will believe in your heart
Yeshua you’ll know
