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.

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)

Alien Abduction Files: A Christian’s Response


What are your thoughts about aliens?  Are they real – are they fake – is there a government cover-up?  It may surprise my readers to learn that the Holy Bible gives mankind ancient wisdom to understand all of the modern UFO sightings as well as alien encounters of every kind, and alien abductions.

What are aliens?  Extra-terrestrials, or Inter-Dimensionals? Are you aware that “aliens” cannot continue an abduction if its victim cries out for help in the name of Jesus?   Why is the alien subject to the Lord Jesus Christ?  We will explore this and more in my Open Letter to the coauthors of The Alien Abduction Files.  Originally I intended to send this letter by email to the authors only, but have since decided that it may be useful for all of my readers.

My original motivation for writing this open letter – nearly 50 pages in length – is due to great compassion for the authors, especially Denise Stoner who was herself an alien abductee.  And even more sad than her abduction claim was her attitude towards her captors.  I would suggest Mrs. Stoner betrayed characteristics of what is commonly know as “Stockholm Syndrome”.  (Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors.)

Regardless of your current position on aliens, UFOs or the alien abduction phenomenon, I pray each reader will consider, and be open-minded to learn more about this topic, of which millions of people around the world claim to have experiential knowledge:

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 3)


History remembers vast farms throughout the Soviet Union which were once the property of private citizens (who were demonized using the term “kulak”), almost overnight were turned into “property of the state” referred to as a collective farm or “kolkhoz”.  Once the farms were “collectivized”, the owners of the land became serfs:

But we still have not reached the innermost secret. The better off [kulaks] were sometimes left where they were, provided they joined the kolkhoz quickly, while the obstinate poor peasant who failed to apply was deported. This is very important, the most important thing. The point of it all was not to dekulakize, but to force the peasants into the kolkhoz. Without frightening them to death there was no way of taking back – the land which the Revolution had given them, and planting them on that same land as serfs. 8

The Soviet Union then had to incentivize the kulak to work for very little in return.  Not to worry, their very own Karl Marx thought of everything:

And what was next? Where was the stimulus to be sought? Money, piece rates, bonus payments? But all of that carried the acrid smell of recent capitalism, and a long period was required, another generation, for that smell to cease to irritate, so it could be peaceably accepted as “the socialist principle of material incentive.” They dug down deeper into the storage chest of history and dragged out what Marx had called “extraeconomic coercion.” In camp and on collective farms this discovery was presented with bared fangs. 9

What were the precursors to the Soviet collectivization that led to so much internal sorrow for its citizens (who were to survive its barbarism)?  Solzhenitsyn suggests it began with the demonization of the “kulaks” (and I would suggest –  in our day – with the ranchers of Oregon):

Where did it all start? With the dogma that the peasantry is petit bourgeois? (And who in the eyes of these people is not petit bourgeois? In their wonderfully clear-cut scheme, apart from factory workers [not the skilled workers, though] and big-shot businessmen, all the rest, the whole people-peasants, office workers, actors, airmen, professors, students, doctors – are nothing but the “petite bourgeoisie.”) Or did it start with a criminal scheme in high places to rob some and terrorize the rest?

From the last letters which Korolenko wrote to Gorky in 1921; just before the former died and the latter emigrated, we learn that this villainous assault on the peasantry had begun even then, and was taking almost the same form as in 1930.

But as yet their strength did not equal their impudence, and they backed down.

The plan, however, remained in their heads, and all through the twenties they bullied and prodded and taunted: “Kulak! Kulak! Kulak!” The thought that it was impossible to live in the same world as the kulak was gradually built up in the minds of townspeople.

The devastating peasant Plague began, as far as we can judge, in 1929 – the compilation of murder lists, the confiscations, the deportations. But only at the beginning of 1930 (after rehearsals were complete, and necessary adjustments made) was the public – allowed to learn what was happening – in the decision of the Central Committee of the Party dated January 5. (The Party is “justified in shifting from a policy of restricting the exploiting tendencies of the kulaks to a policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class.” And the admission of kulaks to the kolkhoz was immediately … prohibited. Would anyone like to attempt a coherent explanation?)

The dutifully concurring Central Executive Committee of the Soviets and the Council of People’s Commissars were not far behind the Central Committee, and on February 1, 1930, they gave legislative form to the will of the Party. Provincial Executive Committees were required to ”use all necessary methods in the struggle with the kulaks, up to and including [in reality no other method was used] complete confiscation of the property of kulaks and their removal to points beyond the boundaries of certain regions and provinces.” (emphasis mine) 10

Could America be headed in the same direction as former Communist dictator Josef Stalin and his Marxist creed?  Sadly, the globalist agenda would make Stalin’s atrocities look like child’s play.  The high-end estimate of deaths attributed to Stalin is sixty million.  As Dave Hodges writes about America:

Today, our estimated population is 310 million people. Yet, the 11 megacities are only expected to house six million people each.

310,000,000 million Americans – 66,000,000 megacity dwellers

=

244,000,000 missing Americans

Again, if Ammon Bundy loses and this whole series of events gets swept under the carpet, the march toward America 2050 and America’s date with genocide, will continue unabated. IF you want to slow this down, then circulate this article, or write one of your own and distribute it widely, our lives depend on it.

Perhaps you still may ask, isn’t all of this conjecture?  Is any of this really happening?

In March 2012, President Obama quietly signed Executive Order 13603 enabling the federal government to take over management and distribution of all food, water and other resources, should there be an emergency.

One may still argue that men are better today than in the days of Stalin, Mao Zedong, Hitler, Pol Pot etc.  After all, there is a United Nations now, dedicated to the protection of every person, right?  Let us ask ourselves, what really is the agenda of the UN, the New World Order, the Masons, the Vatican and the Illuminati?

In his before-mentioned article covering the Oregon ranchers, Dave Hodges referenced the ominous and foreboding message on two granite pillars known as the Georgia Guidestones.  It is a sort of “Ten Commandments” / American Stonehenge structure secretly created in 1980:

A set of 10 guidelines is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

…[The guidelines are] in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

Notice the first “guideline” engraved on the Georgia Guidestones:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

In his new documentary called Dark Clouds Over Elberton: The True Story of the Georgia Guidestones, Chris Pinto exposes the Globalist and Illuminist origins of the Georgia Guidestones whose message betrays their intention to use environmentalism in perhaps the most nefarious plot ever concocted by fallen men to depopulate the world.

Jesus said about the end times:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matthew 24:21-22)

Wisdom is calling with urgency – calling for repentance.  This blog joins with the many thousands of sermons, articles, blogs and videos – each joining and merging as one sound — one trumpet sound and battle cry, declaring “NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!” (II Corinthians 6:2b) Jeremiah gives a very ominous warning to the children of Israel when their hearts were far from the Lord.  If the West is embroiled in the same sins as ancient Israel, could this be our future too:

Behold, I will bring a nation against you from afar,
O house of Israel,” says the Lord.
“It is a mighty nation,
It is an ancient nation,
A nation whose language you do not know,
Nor can you understand what they say.
 
Their quiver is like an open tomb;
They are all mighty men.
 
And they shall eat up your harvest and your bread,
Which your sons and daughters should eat.
They shall eat up your flocks and your herds;
They shall eat up your vines and your fig trees;
They shall destroy your fortified cities,
In which you trust, with the sword.

“Nevertheless in those days,” says the Lord, “I will not make a complete end of you. (Jeremiah 5:-14-18)

Thankfully, there will be those who repent.  And to those, the Lord gives two very comforting prophetic words. No longer must we endure the indignities and horrors of a Communist and Globalist ruse.  No longer must we surrender our land to the powers of Babylon — a very different day awaits those who will “overcome” the end of days:

But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; For the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken. (Micah 4:4)

In that day,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘Everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.’” Zechariah 3:10

We can be greatly comforted by the Lord’s prophecies.  In the meantime, what will we do, and whom will we serve?  Ammon Bundy’s struggle should be all of our “collective” struggle.  The impact of Agenda 21 and its offspring – legislates a worldwide “Bully’s Paradise”, replete with untold barbarism mechanized by twenty-first century technology, and on a scale never before seen.  What will we do when we cannot buy or sell, except by taking the “mark of the beast“?  Make your decision now to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, the loving Shepherd, and Holy Messiah.  Do not wait for the hammer to fall.

Join me in this “Prayer” by Petra:

As we face the last and final hours, turn a wayward country back to You
And keep us from the evil that devours
Keep us on the path and lead us through
Keep us in Your light until Your kingdom comes and our work is done

This is my prayer lifted to You
Knowing You care so much more than I do
This is my prayer in Jesus’ name
Your will be done I humbly pray

This is my prayer, this is my prayer

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 2)


Likely the Hammonds, as well as Ammon Bundy, his siblings and parents who own a cattle ranch in Nevada, would be considered “kulaks” under its later definition of the former Soviet regime:

Subsequently, after 1917, by a transfer of meaning, the name kulak began to be applied (in official and propaganda literature, whence it moved into general usage) to all those who in any way hired workers, even if it was only when they were temporarily short of working hands in their own families. ³

Once the kulak, was sufficiently demonized, the Soviets progressed, or more accurately descended, to the next level:

But the inflation of this scathing term kulak proceeded relentlessly, and by 1930 all strong peasants in general were being so called – all peasants strong in management, strong in work, or even strong merely in convictions. The term kulak was used to smash the strength of the peasantry. Let us remember, let us open our eyes: only a dozen years had passed since the great Decree on the Land – that very decree without which the peasants would have refused to follow the Bolsheviks and without which the October Revolution would have failed….And now these peasants, whose breadgrain had fed Russia in 1928, were hastily uprooted by local good-for-nothings and city people sent in from outside. Like raging beasts, abandoning every concept of “humanity,” abandoning all humane principles which had evolved through the millennia, they began to round up the very best farmers and their families, and to drive them, stripped of their possessions, naked, into the northern wastes, into the tundra and the taiga…. 4

So what does the shameful persecution of unfortunate landowners in the USSR have to do with our day?  Let us continue our exploration of Agenda 21.  If this is a new term or concept, consider this short video which provides a good overall understanding:

https://youtu.be/XJYT52sl-qA

How does Agenda 21 compare to Lenin’s “Decree on Land”:

The Decree on Land, written by Vladimir Lenin, was passed by the Second Congress of Soviets of Workers’, Soldiers’, and Peasants’ Deputies on 26 October 1917, following the success of the October Revolution. It decreed an abolition of private property, and the redistribution of the landed estates amongst the peasantry.  According to the Decree on Land, the peasants had seized the lands of the nobility, monasteries and Church. This decree was followed on February 19, 1918, by a decree of the Central Executive Committee of the Congress of Soviets, “The Fundamental Law of Land Socialization”.

Lenin penned that the land would be redistributed “to the peasants”.  This of course did not make its way into reality, as is quite common with Communist tenets.  Conversely, the peasants were often driven from, or handed over to starvation within their own land, as we have seen in the Stalinist era.  However, Agenda 21 and its sister-agendas like America 2050 go a step further — they do not make empty promises that the land will be redistributed to the people. Conversely they clearly map out “no human access” zones, and assert to move the American people to less than a dozen “megacities”.  Hodges explains:

During this time, the global elite’s plan to establish 11 megacity regions, each containing approximately six million people each was being established under stealth….

In the present time, locating the publicly available information on the megacities topic is child’s play. In fact, I am quite shocked that more of my colleagues in the truthful media are not immersed in this topic and shouting from the rooftops about the implications posed by the implementation of these 11 urban areas to our collective lives, liberties, properties and our very existence….

Where ever you find a bold new initiative related to the plans of the global elite, you will find documentation arising from various think tank organizations in support of these goals. With regard to the coming forced subjugation of the American population to the “stack and pack” megacities, two important papers, the “3-D: Infrastructure for California’s Future” and the National Academy of Public Administration’s “Memos to National Leaders: Partnerships as Fiscal Policy”, jump to the front of the line in espousing the megacities concept.

What is the end goal of Agenda 21?  Hodges has dire words for the future of his country unless “we the people” stand up against the ‘current’ of raging waters:

In the United States, food will be the weapon of choice that will be used to be move people to the target areas. Today, people are being nudged by EPA and BLM policies to the inner city areas. In tomorrow’s world, food will be the enticer to move people to the inner city. With small farmers out of the way, only large corporate farms will exist. This is what the Ammon Bundy situation is all about. If he loses, the following will continue unabated, which means America has a date with genocide.

His is an interesting analysis of Agenda 21 – for “food” to be the “enticer”, and a world where “only large corporate farms will exist”. It piques an interest because history is in fact playing twice.  Solzhenitsyn refers to the Bolshevik and Stalinist orchestrated famines as the “Plague”:

But about the silent, treacherous Plague which starved fifteen million of our peasants to death, choosing its victims carefully and destroying the backbone and mainstay of the Russian people – about that Plague there are no books. No bugles bid our hearts beat faster for them.  Not even the traditional three stones mark the crossroads where they went in creaking carts to their doom. Our finest humanists, so sensitive to today’s injustices, in those years only nodded approvingly: Quite right, too! Just what they deserve! 5

The Soviet Union accomplished her starvation plan through the dreaded policy of “Grain Procurement”, as in this example of a province called Kady.  Its leaders were distressed that the people would have little food to survive once their grain was procured:

It happened that Fyodor Ivanovich Smirnov, the First Secretary of the District Party Committee, was a man with a strong sense of justice; Stavrov, the head of the District Agricultural Department…. These men tried to do something for the peasants in their new district, but directives kept pouring down from above and each one ran counter to some initiative of theirs; it was as if, up there, they were busy thinking up what they could do to make things worse and more desperate for the peasants.  And at one point the leaders in Kady wrote the province leadership that it was necessary to lower the plan for procurement of breadgrains because the district couldn’t fulfill the plan without becoming impoverished well below the danger point. One has to recall the situation in the thirties (and maybe not only the thirties?) to realize what sacrilege against the plan and what rebellion against the government this represented! 6

Holodomor

In this same way, millions of Ukrainians were starved to death, although their land was none other than the famed “breadbasket of Europe“.

This intentional famine is known as “Holodomor”.

Ukrainian grain was sent to Moscow and other places, and sold to procure money for Stalin’s “Five Year Plan” — all while the locals starved.

Stalin sent many dissenters to these regions of death.  This ensured lies flourished in the “Main Stream Media” that no such famine existed.  His propaganda squad also played international hard ball as well, as described in this article:

The Soviets bolstered their famine denial by duping members of the foreign press and international celebrities through carefully staged photo opportunities in the Soviet Union and the Ukraine. The writer George Bernard Shaw, along with a group of British socialites, visited the Soviet Union and came away with a favorable impression which he disseminated to the world. Former French Premier Edouard Herriot was given a five-day stage-managed tour of the Ukraine, viewing spruced-up streets in Kiev and inspecting a ‘model’ collective farm. He also came away with a favorable impression and even declared there was indeed no famine.

Holodomor2

We may ask, why didn’t the Soviet citizens secretly take grains for themselves and their families?  Why did they starve in this manner?  Many tried, but this sort of treasonous act was thoroughly punished:

….There was a wave for snipping ears, the nighttime snipping of individual ears of grain in the field-a totally new type of agricultural activity, a new type of harvesting! The wave of those caught doing this was not small-it included many tens of thousands of peasants, many of them not even adults but boys, girls, and small children whose elders had sent them out at night to snip, because they had no hope of receiving anything from the collective farm for their daytime labor. For this bitter and not very productive occupation (an extreme of poverty to which the peasants had not been driven even in serfdom) the courts handed out a full measure: ten years for what ranked as an especially dangerous theft of socialist property under the notorious law of August 7, 1932-which in prisoners’ lingo was known simply as the law of Seven-eighths. 7

Oregon Ranch Land: A Bully’s Paradise (Part 1)


What in the world is going on in Oregon?  There appear to be multiple disputes Oregonian ranchers are having with US government agencies over land rights.  Some alternative media journalists have cited UN Agenda 21 as the core basis for these disputes.  Pope Francis became the first Pope in history to address a joint session of US Congress in September 2015.  What did His Holiness promote during those historic sessions?  Agenda 21.  What is Agenda 21 – is it similar to any legislation drawn up in the past?  Before addressing the tenets of Agenda 21, we will first explore what the Bible has to say about this very important subject: land rights.

After the children of Israel escaped from the land of Egypt, the Lord swore that he would give to them a certain piece of land in Canaan; and he brooded over them – determined to fulfill his promise:

Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you.” (Deuteronomy 31:23)

Each Jewish tribe was given their own piece of land as a heritage for their descendants who would follow them:

These are the areas which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel distributed as an inheritance to them.  Their inheritance was by lot, as the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe. For Moses had given the inheritance of the two tribes and the half-tribe on the other side of the Jordan…. For the children of Joseph were two tribes: Manasseh and Ephraim….As the Lord had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did; and they divided the land. (Joshua 14: 1-5)

The Lord instructed the children of Israel to observe what is called the “Year of Jubilee”.  During that year, everyone who was heavily indebted and had to sell their land as a result, would be given back the land of their inheritance.

In the Year of Jubilee the field shall return to him from whom it was bought, to the one who owned the land as a possession. And all your valuations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs to the shekel. (Leviticus 27:24)

If any were enslaved because of their debts, they would be given emancipation.  The year of Jubilee ensured the continuity of the tribe members’ lands, resources and fortunes; all would be preserved as an inheritance to future generations.

The Lord described this safe time in Israel’s history, with a connection to land rights for the children of Israel:

And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, each man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan as far as Beersheba, all the days of Solomon. (1 Kings 4:25)

So what do these ancient Scriptures have to do with Oregon, or Agenda 21?

The “new” Agenda 21 of the new world order is anything but new.  It is based on well-known tenets of Communist Marxism: Abolition of private ownership of land, and abolition of inheritance.  These Marxist tenets are directly opposed to the ancient paths of Biblical instruction.  Under Marxist principle, all land belongs to the government.  Is it any surprise that the American execution of Agenda 21 has caused deep unrest among ranchers whose families have owned their land for decades?  Steadily, the government has been using draconian methods to take land from ranchers across the United States.  Ironically, the Constitution of the United States restricts federal land ownership. With the exception of “forts, magazines, arsenals, dock-yards, and other needful buildings” (and even then, purchases are via “consent of the legislature of the state”), the founding fathers penned that the federal government is not authorized to own land (Article I, Section 8, Clause 17).  Yet the federal government has amassed many acres of farm and ranch lands across the United States.  How much land does the government own?  According to this article by Heritage.org:

In 1996, the General Accounting Office reported that the federal government owned a staggering 650 million acres, or one-third of the land in the United States.

Ammon Bundy said goodbye (hopefully only temporarily) to his wife and six children in order to lead an armed protest based out of the empty Malheur Wildlife Refuge building approximately thirty miles outside of Burns, Oregon. Many have decried their decision to overtake the wildlife building, but the OregonMap3protesters believe their cause is just and right, and are willing to face fines, imprisonment, and even death to raise awareness for what they believe are gross injustices in Harney County, Oregon.  The main stream media points out that the Harney County citizens do not want Ammon and his people there – yet many citizens have come to them privately to say they are afraid of government retribution.  And still other locals have brought the men food and resources. Independent Journalist, Pete Santilli has been live-streaming since Day 1 of the protest, and many things which come to light during his streams, never see the light of day on main stream media. This is not surprising given that all main stream media is owned by six corporate conglomerates. Consequently, main stream media channels are paid to report the party line.  Their collective propaganda machines are infinitely more sophisticated and effective than anything Stalin or Hitler could have imagined.

Independent Journalist Dave Hodges details an interview with Ammon Bundy wherein Hodges connects the UN Agenda 21 with  protests in Burns, Oregon.  Central to the activity in Burns is the case of Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammond. They left their homes to report to federal prison – for the second time – on January 4, 2016. They already served a sentence for Arson, and now they are serving a sentence for Terrorism – for the same “crime”.  The Hammonds are accused of starting a fire on their own land, which is normal for any rancher, but this fire spread to government-owned BLM property.   Hodges gives this account:

During the course of the interview, Ammon made the case that the federal prosecutors violated Double Jeopardy when dealing with the Hammonds. He also made the case that the role of his men was toAgenda21Map correct the abuses against ranchers and farmers by the departments of the federal government (e.g. BLM). They are reviewing land titles, mineral rights documents and seeing that these agreements are carried out. For example, he told the audience of how they freed the unjustly encumbered land of a rancher by removing a fence placed on the private land of a rancher by Fish and Wildlife. The fence was illegally interfering with the rancher’s right to conduct economic activity on their land. In fact, it can be said, the Bundy led patriots are the only lawful group in the area as these kinds of property rights abuses are being carried by the federal government against thousands of ranchers and farmers in the West.

The goal of these illegal land grab federal activities is to enforce Agenda 21 dictates from the United Nations and vacate all rural land of private ownership in the West. These cases are so numerous, that there is no denying this claim. ¹

What about the government violation of “double jeopardy”, which is a US Constitution, 5th Amendment protection designed to prevent “the prosecution of a person twice for the same offense“?  Does the violation of “double jeopardy” protection find its roots in other forms of government?

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn describes “second camp terms” in the notorious Soviet concentration camps he referred to as the “archipelago”:

…In 1938, second camp terms were given out without any second arrest, without a camp interrogation, without a camp court, when the prisoners were simply called up in brigades to the Records and Classification Section and told to sign for their second terms.  (For refusing to sign—you were simply put in punishment block, as for smoking where it wasn’t allowed.) And they also had it all explained to them in a very human way: “We aren’t telling you that you are guilty of anything, but just sign that you have been informed.”… And it was useless to try to get out of it as if, in the dark infinity of the Archipelago, eight was in any way distinct from eighteen, or a tenner at the start from a tenner at the end of a sentence. The only important thing was that they did not claw and tear your body today. ²

Next we will highlight the case of Frenchglen ranchers in Oregon.  In this youtube video, BLM agents start fires on ranchers’ property, destroying houses and livestock.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zvrrQbjepc

In the youtube video above, one can easily see the distressed cows with burns and blood marks as they are struggling to breathe – immersed in  thick smoke from BLM fires. Where are the Animal Rights CattleBurnedand Environmental groups now?  Be assured, that most special interest groups will go along with Agenda 21.  The cost of dissent is just too high.

We may sit back and criticize the methods of Bundy and his men, but as we articulate our dissent, the tenets of Agenda 21 are likely being drawn up for our properties, lands and homes.  Perhaps one day we may only wish for an Ammon Bundy who would selflessly arise to our defense.

GOG: A Case of Mistaken Identity (Part 2)


One cannot do justice to Richardson’s work on ‘Gog’ in Mideast Beast unless his script is carefully copied word for word.  However, this section will uncover a small sampling of Richardson’s heavily notated work which stands to convince the strongest of critics against Turkey as the Biblical Magog of Ezekiel 38:

DOES MAGOG REFER TO TURKEY? In conducting the research for this chapter, I consulted numerous reputable Bible atlases, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and commentaries, and compared them to a large sampling of popular Bible prophecy books. The discrepancies between these references and the prophecy books were shocking. While practically every popular prophecy book or treatment of Ezekiel places Magog in Russia, this position is almost never given serious credence in the more scholarly reference works. While some say it is not possible to know the location of Magog with any certainty, the overwhelming majority say that Magog likely refers to modern-day Turkey. Consider the following sampling of reference works and scholars who support the Turkish-Magog position. As you do, ask yourself why this view is utterly ignored in virtually every popular prophecy book on this subject:

– Old Testament scholar Daniel I. Block, in the New International Commentary on Ezekiel, says, “It seems best to interpret Magog as a contraction of an original mât Gugi, ‘land of Gog,’ and to see here a reference to the territory of Lydia in western Anatolia [Turkey].”

– The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary states, “Magog, possibly meaning ‘the land of Gog,’ was no doubt in Asia Minor [Turkey] and may refer to Lydia.”

– The IVP Bible Background Commentary lists Magog, Meshech, Tubal, and Togarmah as “sections or peoples in Asia Minor” [Turkey].

– The New Unger’s Bible Dictionary, under the entry for “Magog,” states, “It is clear that Lydia [Turkey] is meant, and that by ‘Magog,’ we must understand, ‘the land of Gog.’”

– The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary places Magog in Anatolia, or modern-day Turkey.

– The Catholic Encyclopedia states, “It seems more probable that … Magog should be identified with Lydia [Turkey]. On the other hand, as Mosoch and Thubal were nations belonging to Asia Minor, it would seem from the text of Ezechiel that Magog must be in that part of the world. Finally, others with Josephus identify Magog with Scythia, but in antiquity this name was used to designate vaguely any northern population.”

– The Holman Bible Atlas places Magog in Turkey.

– The New Moody Atlas of the Bible also places Magog in Turkey.

– The Zondervan Atlas of the Bible places Magog in Turkey.

– The IVP Atlas of Bible History places Magog in Turkey.

Now let’s consider some of the historical sources that support this position:

– MAIMONIDES, also known as Rambam, the revered Jewish sage, in Hichot Terumot, identified Magog as being in Syria on the border of Turkey.

– PLINY THE ELDER Pliny the Elder was a first-century Roman military commander, author, naturalist, and philosopher. He spoke of a city called “Bambyce, otherwise called Hierapolis; but of the Syrians, Magog.” Ancient Heirapolis sat on the border of modern-day Turkey and Syria; thus, according
to Pliny, so did Magog. 4

And the list goes on!

With Magog satisfied, some may still object to a Turkish interpretation because of Ezekiel’s reference to “Rosh” as in “the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal – surely that must be “Russia”, right?  Richardson defers to Old Testament scholar Daniel I. Block:

Block acknowledges the need to translate rosh as a noun, but also recognizes that it should be translated according to its normal usage throughout the Bible as a reference to “chief,” as well as its appositional relationship to the other names in the text. Block’s translation reads as follows: “Set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince, chief of Meshech and Tubal” (Ezekiel 38:3)….

While Block’s translation is now widely accepted by a vast majority of scholars, most prophecy teachers are not aware of this, and still clinging to the outdated view.5

So what about the other cities, you may ask — Tubal and Meshech?

AND TUBAL In keeping with its Russian-centric interpretation of Ezekiel 38, the Scofield Study Bible identifies Meshech as the city of Moscow, and Tubal as Tobolsk, a city in central Russia. This position was followed by numerous prophecy books for many years, but because of the complete lack of any historical support for this position, today it has been abandoned by virtually all. Following is a partial list of reference works that place both Meshech and Tubal in the region of modern-day Turkey:

– Holman Bible Atlas

– Oxford Bible Atlas

– IVP New Bible Atlas

– The IVP Atlas of Bible History

– New Moody Atlas of the Bible

– Zondervan Atlas of the Bible

– Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary

– The Macmillan Bible Atlas

– Baker Bible Atlas

It is important to note that today, nearly all scholars identify both Meshech and Tubal as relating to modern-day Turkey. As we have stated throughout our study, to properly identify Magog, the homeland of Gog, we must first identify both Meshech and Tubal. Because both of these areas would have been understood by Ezekiel to be found in the region of modern Turkey, we can also deduce that Magog is also a reference to Turkey.6

The other nations in the confederacy of Gog have also been similarly analyzed within Mideast Beast, and overwhelmingly point to the Islamic nations.

EzekielKingdomsThe kingdoms identified in Ezekiel 38 are not necessarily a comprehensive list of the ten-nation Antichrist confederacy.  Richardson explains:

Of course, this list is not exhaustive.  Many scholars see Ezekiel’s list as detailing only one major nation from each corner of the compass as indicating that Ezekiel’s list is a non-comprehensive summary…. Is it possible that Russia will participate in the last-days invasion? Yes, but nowhere is this ever expressly prophesied in Scripture. To discuss this possibility would be nothing more than speculation. As we have said from the beginning of this book, as students of the Scriptures, our end-time perspective should emphasize that which the Scriptures emphasize, and where they are silent, we should remain silent or use extreme caution. Because this prophecy so clearly emphasizes Turkey as the head of the coming Antichrist’s invasion of Israel, it would seem quite reasonable for Bible students to watch Turkey very carefully. Of course, in light of the great debate and wide range of opinion that has surrounded this passage for thousands of years, in our watchfulness, we must also remain humble and cautious. As always, it is God who knows best. 7

gogmap2Take advantage of Richardson’s thorough and careful research.  Be encouraged to read Mideast Beast, and settle this very important question as to ‘who is Gog of Magog’.

Could it be that due to a misunderstanding of Ezekiel 38, some Christians are praying against one of the only oppositional forces attempting to defeat ISIS?  God forbid.  Surely, I believe that Russia will fight against the West, and other NATO countries – but justifiably so.

These are difficult times, but as Christians we need to pray to be on “the right side” of the battle.  Let us add our prayers to the chorus of those co-laboring with the Lord declaring, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done…“(Matthew 6:10a)  Let our conviction follow that of former US President Abraham Lincoln:

During the war, Lincoln overheard someone remark that he hoped “the Lord was on the Union’s side.” Lincoln responded with this sharp rebuke:

I am not at all concerned about that, for I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord’s side.

Lastly, Richardson reveals that the epic battle of Gog, is none other than the notorious Battle of Armageddon in Revelation 19.  He contends that Gog is the Jewish word for “Antichrist”.  Perhaps this will be the subject of another blog.  Until then, happy reading!

GOG: A Case of Mistaken Identity (Part 1)


Understanding the ever-changing alignment of nations is becoming increasingly difficult these days due to ‘wars and rumors of war’.  Allegiances and loyalties seem to change by the hour, reducing contracts of men to rubble underfoot as is many a Damascus road. However, we can take comfort even in despair, because the Lord has declared the “end from the beginning” in his Word, the Holy Bible.

While ties between countries seem tenuous and nearly impossible to follow, the Lord has revealed the precise nations who will join forces against Israel (and even against his own Messianic kingdom) in the last days.  Ezekiel 38 describes some of these nations, and spotlights a chief antagonist, “Gog, of the land of Magog”; it is arguably one of the greatest flagship Scriptures for navigating our way through the end times. Could these nations be coalescing now?  Are current headlines in the Middle East beginning to uncover the fault lines predicted by Ezekiel?

No doubt Syria is a very ominous sign of things to come, the land has been devastated and her people have been ravished and savagely brutalized; many call it genocide.  Yet irony of ironies, the US State Department claimed the achievement of: “Bringing Peace and Security to Syria” in 2015.   The world touts blame for the Syrian crisis lies at the feet of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.  But is that true?  It is called a “civil war”, yet ISIS boasts American military training and financial support. All the while the world is fed US policies of aggression against ISIS in Syria.  How can we navigate these inconsistencies?

I myself believed the horror stories perpetrated by Assad in 2012 after reading a book by Samar Yazbek,  A Woman in the Crossfire: Diaries of the Syrian Revolution.  The horror that came off those pages was palpable.  I couldn’t stop talking or thinking about it for weeks. But was it true?  I have a friend connected with the Syrian Christian community, and from him I began to understand that the Christians in Syria have always been at peace, and they have been very content living under Assad.  Surely the geopolitics are complicated, but over the years I have come to view Yazbek’s book as propaganda for the elite agenda, and the revived Islamic Caliphate.  To learn more, see my blog on ‘Islamic Antichrist: A King’s Statue‘.  We have seen what ISIS does to its victims, and that is in living color the abominable deeds penned by Samar Yazbek; so who in Syria really perpetrates the horrors she dutifully chronicled?  Who was she working for?

All of this political intrigue; how can we know the truth?  Jesus warned his followers to observe the fruit of men, For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.” (Luke 6:43-44)

Thankfully the Bible sets the record straight – we can learn what is coming from reading its prophetic words. In Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation as well as other Biblical texts, we learn the nations which will coalesce to form an end-time world confederacy. We learn that this powerful empire will crush opposition, and its satanically-possessed leader will eventually be worshiped as God.  So where are we at this point?

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:

The burden against Damascus. “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.” (Isaiah 17:1)

With cursory knowledge, one can easily place the blame for the Syrian plight at the feet of President Assad, or even Russia.  But the Lord knows every dark shadow, fork-tongued “diplomacy” and evil intrigue; and he knows who really bears responsibility for Damascus becoming ‘a ruinous heap’. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7)

What will happen next — will the so-called “civil war” end with Syria?  Understanding the identity of Ezekiel’s ‘Gog, of the land of Magog’ is of utmost importance if we are to gain context for this, and many other end-time prophetic events:

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you. (Ezekiel 38: 1-6)

What is the role of Russia during these end times?  If someone would have asked me that question six months ago, I would have said, “she will lead the Ezekiel 38 end-time confederacy of nations against Israel, and her ruler will be the notorious: ‘Gog’ of Magog”.  And then, everything changed.

Joel Richardson’s Mideast Beast is a must-read for those who “watch and pray” as our Lord instructed.  We are keeping our eye on Russia, yet all the while Magog (literally: “land of Gog”) bears its historical roots in a very different land.  Magog is a land in which the rumbles of a revived Islamic Caliphate can be heard by its faithful — beckoning like the call to prayer. Its prophesied resurrection in Daniel 2 can be observed today, and felt throughout the region.  To learn more, see my blogs on ‘A King’s Statue‘ and ‘Four Signposts (Part 2-C)‘.

Many a commentary identifies ‘Gog’ as the leader of Russia.  If mistaken, how could so many commentaries miss the mark on Ezekiel 38? What is the source of our misunderstanding?

Ever since the release of C. I. Scofield’s Reference Bible, numerous popular prophecy teachers today identify Magog with Russia or the former Soviet Central Asian nations (Kazakstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan). The primary support for this position is found in a comment made by Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian from the first century.¹

Richardson then goes on to identify the point of contention in Josephus’ work which has led to a Russian interpretation for Ezekiel 38:

In discussing the various descendants of Japheth, Noah’s son, Josephus wrote, “Magog founded those that from him were named Magogites, but who are by the Greeks called Scythians.”²

To this, Richardson offers two important considerations.  Regarding the Greek reference to “Scythian”:

historians today acknowledge that “Scythian” was a catch-all term loosely used to refer to a vast group of tribal peoples, often related by similar cultures, but not genetically.  The second problem with Josephus’s comments is that they were made in the first century. Ezekiel lived close to seven hundred years earlier than Josephus. In Josephus’s identifications of the various descendants of Noah, he repeatedly spoke of those “who are now called by the Greeks” thus and such. In other words, his comments tell us nothing about how Ezekiel would have understood the term Magog….

After planting the self-named city of Magog, also called Heirapolis in Syria, near the border of Turkey, some Magog peoples migrated to central and western Turkey and planted the kingdom of Lydia, which occupied the whole western half of Turkey, and thrived during Ezekiel’s day.³

Other writers have pointed to Philo or Herodotus attempting to support their Russian interpretation of Magog.  However, Richardson points out that neither Philo nor Herodotus ever once mentioned Magog in their collective works — only “Scythians” — but we know that assumption is shaky ground for reasons before-stated.  To truly identify Gog and Magog, we must explore ancient geography.
