4-20-16: Germany assembling “Secret EU Army”?

EU SECRET ARMY?:

It isn’t a secret any more! 🙂

 

Follow up to the last two days now. It’s been a busy week so far: https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/4-19-16-the-fix-is-in/

1.) http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/04/20/german-and-dutch-military-forces-merge-bringing-eu-army-a-step-closer/    (Check all hyperlinks)  Main Story
REPORT: Germany ‘Annexing’ Dutch Military As Secretive EU Army Begins To Take Shape

2.)  https://twitter.com/COLRICHARDKEMP/status/722552898018766848   Anecdotal secondary of sorts

As usual, I want to attempt to not get carried away here or read too much into anything but I don’t see any way around it: This is a significant development in the makings.   It’s also completely different from what we are used to seeing and hearing out of Europe. This sort of thing is quite atypical.  I’m sure we will see and hear plenty of “we need this to combat the evil terrorists” and so forth and there may be some truth to that but there is no way that is sufficient reason in and of itself.  A check against the Russians?  That may be part of it as well.

The second link is a Twitter account of one Colonel Richard Kemp and I can take no credit for it. Certainly the illustration is revealing of what the expectations are at least so far as the “get out of the EU” proponents in Great Britain go. I suspect there is at least a grain of truth to it and especially in light of the first link.

I do find it interesting that Germany is essentially at the head of this development. Not that anyone cares, obviously,  and I’m no expert on this by a mile but how is this potentially not in violation of post World War II treaties, for starters?   More brilliant minds than mine have likely covered every legal nuance on this but I just can’t help but wonder anyways.

This is interesting and compelling but ultimately if I’m thinking ahead to Antichrist and New World Order and one world government then I still say this will need NATO to make it worthwhile and that means America. I can’t see the EU on their own assembling a military worth a hoot let alone comparable to the USA even with the never-ending self sabotaging that the American government excels at.

NATO, or NATO ultimately becomes, will marry these elements together in some form or fashion when it’s time for the World Leader to step up.  The CFR has the world divided into ten regions and you can find those maps right on their own website if you dig around and the alphabet soup group Club of Rome has had similar maps and concepts floating around since the 70s.   Why do we care about ten?  Revelation 17:12.

Regardless of eschatology or honestly? Even without any at all, this is a game changer in the makings.  Stay tuned.

Who is or will be in charge of this EU Military?  

How about this person?  Every so often this concept comes up:  https://euobserver.com/institutional/115965      The EU Super President. That article is from 2012 but it’s sufficient to make the point.  4 years later on that I’d say that concept is easily better than 50/50 odds of happening.  I consider it a given.

When?  My own hunch is: Whenever this military is ready.  I won’t be surprised to see this all up and running before the decade is out. It’s clear they have been working on this for some time as is.   They didn’t wake up this past Monday morning out of nowhere and decide to suddenly whip up an EU Army, let’s put it that way.

Stay tuned.

BIRTH PANGS:

6.1 Quake near Fukishima

Drudge ran this.  6.1 aftershocks… that’s an aftershock!?…  near Fukishima in Japan. They just can’t catch a break. Please keep praying for them, the people of Ecquador, and everyone else that’s been affected by this unprecedented and ghastly streak of seismic activity. This is NOT business as usual.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-ecuador-quake-coast-idUSKCN0XH0S2

6.2 quake off the coast of Ecquador!   Pray. These people just can’t catch a break!  It’s rather scary and sobering to see and hear about 5s and 6s being  considered “aftershocks.”

 

 

MIDDLE EAST:

ISRAEL/TEMPLE MOUNT:

PHOTOS: Jewish Priests Sacrifice Paschal Lamb in Jerusalem

“I didn’t get all dressed up for nuthin’.”  – Mel Gibson as William Wallace with a cool Scottish brogue in Braveheart.

That principle definitely continues to apply to the Temple Institute and things of this nature.

I leave it to you all to read this and look it all over along with other developments we have seen and heard in recent years in regards to the Temple Mount and preparations along these lines and I’ll simply ask this:  Does anyone really think this crew looks content to wait on the sidelines for x number of more decades?  I can’t see it.

 COMMENTARY:

http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/OUR-WORLD-Where-UNESCO-and-ISIS-converge-451722

Another gem from Caroline Glick. What she writes about here is prophetically significant so please take note of it. Anything involving UNESCO is usually bad news and especially for Israel.

 

PARTING SHOT:

Just how close are we?:  https://prophecywatchers.com/videos/gary-stearman-elijah-coming/

3-29-16: An ominous double standard and more…

DOUBLE STANDARD ON GHASTLY TRAGEDIES:

In a Facebook prophecy group someone wrote the following:

Has anyone else noticed that the Easter bombing that targeted Christians in Pakistan has dropped completely off of the news? The Belgium attack killed 35 people and injured 300, and coverage for that went on for days. The attack in Pakistan killed 69 and injured 341.

This is a very good point and like we have seen before, for me, the reasons are obvious as I will detail below.

The last blatant incident was of course the Paris attacks. That was the end of the world but a bunch of Christians that were killed in Africa several months prior to that..a higher body count by the way… was ne’er a peep in the news.   It’s really not very subtle.

BACK IN NOVEMBER 2015:

https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2015/11/18/daily-round-up-11-18-2015/

In November 2015 note the “AFRICA and social commentary of sorts”  segment.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/02/africa/kenya-university-attack/index.html

It’s another round of this.   The Paris attacks happened in November 2015 and it was bad… not taking anything away from it…but it was the end of the world and we had the Facebook social experiment with everyone donning French colors to show solidarity but in April 2015 prior to that we had this ghastly bloodbath with ne’er a peep in the news and I don’t seem to recall anyone showing solidarity in social media with the Kenyans.

Honestly this isn’t very subtle.  If Christians die that’s no big deal at best.   If it doesn’t benefit a certain agenda and help further certain agendas it disappears.   The Pakistan story is another case in point. Adios!

You can read into all of that any way you want.

I really believe we are at the point on a spiritual level where if the “Powers that Be” could round up all the Christians right now they would do it but they can’t yet for a variety of reasons and not the least of which is, of course, The Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2:6  is still in place.    That’s ultimately what’s behind this obvious narrative double standard whether that’s the full and direct intent of every last person or not. That is the overarching Luciferian quality to the entire thing.

It could be a photo finish, folks.  Hang on tight.

MIDDLE EAST:

TURKEY:

http://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-calls-on-its-citizens-to-leave-turkey-now/

http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Report-ISIS-planned-attacks-on-Jewish-kids-in-Turkey-449499

ISRAEL ENCOURAGES CITIZENS TO LEAVE TURKEY

It just continues to be increasingly volatile and bad news in Turkey with Erdogan the autocrat sitting at the helm. What makes this more murky is we still aren’t clear if Erdogan has been in some degree of collusion with ISIS or not but obviously the Israelis are taking no chances all but issuing a mandate for any and all Jews to get out of Turkey. This is serious.

 

ISRAEL

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/209981#.VvkLBVt97nA

The IDF is now considered the 11th most powerful military in the world.  Not bad for a space of land that’s roughly the size of New Jersey.

TEMPLE:

Temple Institute Inaugurates Registry of Biblically Eligible Kohanim

A bit of a nuts and bolts about a new registry to help select certain kinds of priests necessary for preparing the Red Heifer.   It shows me yet again where the expectations are and that this is a group of people taking actions that tell me they expect things in the near future as opposed to x number of decades away. Watch this closely because I still suspect the ever-increasing Temple Mount issue to become a major flashpoint in the near future at least in diplomatic circles if not beyond.

Note the recent flap over the cameras on the Temple Mount as another example: http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Jordan-Cameras-to-be-installed-on-Temple-Mount-to-document-Israeli-violations-448478

No one is satisfied with the cameras but there they are, 24/7 recording all events on the Temple Mount and I personally expect these cameras to stay and possibly more surveillance to be added over time.  Will these be part of the mechanism that people will be being the Two Witnesses during the first part of the Tribulation?  Very likely in my opinion.

ODDITY:

Temple of Baal reproduction coming to Times Square

I think this is all too fitting and appropriate on a number of levels and I will leave it to you to read into that any way you want.

The Daily Roundup 11-4-2015

BIRTH PANGS:

Earthquakes in strange places, etc.

http://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/m-crack-opens-up-in-wyoming-as-nature-revolts-across-the-world/story-fnpjxt8n-1227596415944
700m crack opens up in Wyoming as nature revolts across the world

I love the headline because it’s so accurate. These people don’t understand what they are looking at but my Bible talks about increasing frequency and intensity of birth pangs as we come closer to the time of the Lord’s return.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/02/us/arizona-earthquakes/

Earthquakes in strange places like Phoenix AZ recently with a 4.1 falls into that category in addition to this ominous harbinger of things to come. You can’t blame those quakes on fracking this time, either.
I don’t have to be a geologist to know that no good can come from this.  This is a symptom of a burgeoning, larger problem down the road whether it be volcanic activity, earthquakes, and/or something else in combination.

Strange weather patterns:

We are enjoying low to mid 70s in November here in the midwest. A year ago at this time it was snowing so we will all take this any time!

The average is supposed to be in the low to mid 50s in November and we are tying or breaking records from the late 1930s then that qualifies as rate and unusual.

It’s a bit surreal to see leaves on the ground, hints of left over color, and we’re all in shorts and T-shirts.  Mind you that’s not a complaint. I’m in no hurry for winter at all but the point stands.  We are praying that we don’t get set up for a violent transition when the inevitable return to reality rolls through.

GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE FRAUD:

http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/03/world/antarctica-ice-gain/index.html?sr=fbcnni110415antarctica-ice-gain1230PMVODtopLink&linkId=18491143

Antarctica is gaining ice, NASA study says

Whoops! Even NASA… let it sink in… NASA!  is reporting here that Antarctica, that club the global warming zealots like to bang people over the head with is GAINING ice not LOSING IT. Uh-oh!

Putin is exactly right when he says this is whole thing is a sham and fraud.  It’s nothing more than a New World Order pretext to take control.   The 2011 blow up where a bunch of scientists in the tank for this garbage got burned should have been the end of it but of course it isn’t because there is something else going on here.

RUSSIA:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/vladimir-putin-orders-russian-security-council-to-stockpile-nuclear-protective-equipment-a6717791.html

Vladimir Putin tells Russian security council to stockpile nuclear protective equipment

This is suggestive to say the least.  Why, pray tell?

RUSSIAN AIRLINER TRAGEDY:

This time in Sudan. Sudan is another hot spot of trouble. Story in development.

TECHNOLOGY:

Look up “The Neuro Jeep” in a search engine and you will come recent articles about a telekinesis breakthrough of sorts that has taken place in Moscow. As you read that and watch it just remember: This is simply what is declassified and the most conservative estimates out there put classified tech and projects at least 10-20 years ahead of the streets and ponder that.

RT.com was running a video of this.

GENESIS 6 DAYS OF NOAH WATCH:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3144451/What-mysterious-furry-dolphin-Remains-bizarre-looking-creature-washed-Russian-coast-baffles-scientists.html

https://www.rt.com/news/319997-dead-chupacabra-found-paraguay/

What are these? More stray experiments that slipped out and didn’t get covered up fast enough? I fear there is more truth to the Island of Dr. Moreau concept than any of us would like to think about.

When Jesus said it would be like both the days of Lot and Noah respectively in Luke 21 and Matthew 24 He meant exactly that and there were no caveats or exceptions made.

Some of the excuses people make up for things like these are hysterical.  Good luck explaining all of that away. No, they aren’t hoaxes, either, or left over Halloween costumes. Try again.

UFOs:

http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/616367/WATCH-Nasa-live-cam-cuts-after-suddenly-locking-on-to-mystery-glowing-UFO

Once yet again we have the live cams conveniently getting shut off when the footage starts getting too interesting.

People wonder why there are “conspiracy theories” and so forth. This kind of action is what makes people into conspiracy theorists. What are you all hiding, NASA? It’s about as subtle as a 2X4 to the back of the head.

ARCHAEOLOGY:  

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/11/04/middleeast/israel-acra-discovery/?sr=fbcnni110415israel-acra-discovery1030AMStoryGalLink&linkId=18489160

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2015/11/03/ancient-fortress-discovery-may-solve-one-jerusalems-great-archaeological-mysteries.html?intcmp=hplnws

Acra Greek Fortress remnants found in a Jerusalem parking lot.  Neat!

This may even have some indirect bearing on the Temple Mount location issue which I’ll mention in the next segment.

Temple Mount location controversy:

Apparently there is at least one person trying to create a controversy who has yet to produce physical evidence to support their claims which even I know archaeology lives and dies by.   Interesting questions and talking points come up and that’s great but at some point evidence has to finally show up or it’s time to move on to something else.

In any event if you are interested in these subject matter and want to go down a very fascinating rabbit trail then here is as good of a place to start as any. Happy hunting!

The Daily Roundup 10-28-15

At your leisure read Romans 1 with emphasis starting on verse 24 to the end of the chapter.

Let’s take a look at several recent stories:

BIG BROTHER TECH:

http://www.theverge.com/2015/10/28/9625636/rf-capture-mit-wifi-tracking-surveillance-technology

MIT researchers used Wi-Fi to recognize people through walls It can also distinguish you from other people

Nothing wrong with the technology. It’s all about how it’s used. What’s still classified? Happy thoughts.

CULTURE:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-heroux/transgendered-rights–pub_b_8282114.html

Transgender Rights and Public Bathrooms

How do you determine a transgender bathroom? Is this even for real?  Unfortunately, yes it is.

How did society function for however many thousands of years just fine and all of a sudden in the last few years we can’t figure out if we are men or women?!

How and why did all this happen so fast? <- Talk about a loaded question! Think and pray on that. Ponder it very seriously.

When I was a young child I used to play with both my own toys and some of my sister’s all the time. I can assure you I never had a second thought or doubt whether or not I was a boy. I can assure you I find woman very attractive, always have, and always will.

My sister liked my Transformers. She never had a thought for a second that she was a boy like me. She finds men very attractive, always has, and always will.

All of a sudden now if this happens your kid is a transsexual or more and we have it all figured out when they are 3 years old! Right. Unbelievable.

When do people finally just snap from all the insanity?  Where is the outrage and blowback? What does it take? I continue to be increasingly, morbidly fascinated with just how much garbage people are willing to put up with.

Becoming a hermit becomes more attractive with each passing day.

WARNING CRUDE LANGUAGE: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/10/27/germaine-greer-lopping-off-your-dck-doesnt-make-you-a-woman

^^ Cuts to the chase.  When you get frustrated enough things get blunt.

We have lost our minds.  2+2=5.

Romans 1 is a checklist that’s fully filled out.  1 Timothy 4. We’re there. 2 Timothy 3. Checklist filled out.  It’s not a pretty picture. It’s certainly nothing you can build any kind of real future off of.

This isn’t Nineveh in Jonah. This is Nineveh in Nahum over the edge.

There isn’t a glimmer of repentance anywhere in the culture. We’re done and it isn’t just the United States. It’s the entire planet.

MIDDLE EAST AND ISRAEL:

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/52225/75-year-old-vision-predicted-russias-role-syrian-conflict-final-war-gog-magog-jewish-world/

This isn’t Bible prophecy but I continue to take note how these Messianic expectations have exploded out there in very recent times. Take it for whatever it may be worth.

http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/13379/Turkey-takes-over-opposition-TV-stations-ahead-of-election

Turkey takes over opposition TV stations ahead of elections

Elections probably with ” “.

Watch Turkey closely. If you are a premillennial leaning Christian then you know Turkey is a player and somehow needs to end up on the same side as the rest of the Ezekiel 38 alliance players who are already in their right places now. Erdogan has been going increasingly militant and less “Western leaning” but it remains to be seen if he stays or something Arab Spring  like happens in Turkey to finish it.

The Bible gives us a fairly decent amount of the “what” of events but it doesn’t give us a lot of the “how” of events as in: How do we get from point A to point B so this is why we watch these things.

My personal opinion is that Turkey ultimately leaves NATO and shifts more hard Islamic and lines up with Syria, Iran (and Russia.)

TEMPLE MOUNT:

The fact that this is such a hot button issue now speaks volumes to me. A few years ago no one cared. This isn’t in 20-50 years my friends. It’s now.

http://freebeacon.com/national-security/israel-jordan-agree-to-install-surveillance-cameras-on-jerusalems-temple-mount/

Israel, Jordan Agree to Install Surveillance Cameras on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount

I am not going to read into anything too much but I find this concept revealing on several levels.

This specific development immediately brought two events in Bible prophecy yet to happen immediately to my mind:   Revelation 11 describes the events involving the Two Witnesses that whole world sees nonstop right on through to their deaths and resurrections. Take one guess where a lot of their activity will be if not all of it. They will be fixtures on the Temple Mount. If they showed up today we could start watching them just like that passage describes.

The same goes for Daniel 9 and Matthew 24 which describe how the AntiChrist will commit an Abomination of Desolation in the Temple. This Temple does not exist yet but it’s about to which is why this fervor about the Temple is important for us to watch.  This on site camera development also applies potentially to these events.   We now have a direct potential concept being established right now where people can watch the Temple Mount whenever they want, wherever they want, with little to no effort.

I’m not saying “this is it!”   I am simply saying we now have a direct, literal method that would be effective enough today and now to achieve maximum fulfillment.

USA FOREIGN POLICY:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34647193

Here is the continued haphazard and chaotic United States foreign policy. Back to sucking up to Iran even though they said publically a few ago they were done dealing with us. They have already violated this so-called deal we made, too.  No biggie, though.  How many red lines was that again?

Everyone knows we stand for nothing now and our word means nothing. It’s open season. The Russians certainly know it and that’s part of why they finally charged into the Middle East with abandon.

http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Report-Russia-strikes-Syrian-rebel-targets-near-Golan-Heights-for-first-time-43019

Like them or lump them: Russia has been getting a lot accomplished since they rolled in. They are large and in charge. They aren’t just attacking ISIS, either. With that in mind:

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/sec-carter-direct-u-s-action-ground-iraq-syria-n452131

So the USA is going to send ground troops back into Iraq…surprise! You knew it wasn’t over and it’s never going to be… and Syria.    Look over my previous blog entries and look at that Damascus footage. 300,000 dead and a capital city teetering on the edge of destruction like that with no end in sight?  Except the end is near for that place: Isaiah 17.

What’s bizarre about this is that the Russians have clearly been going against supposed USA interests with some of their attacks so this is a potential proxy war between the United States and Russia.  How did that work out for everyone the last time we all danced to that tune for several decades? Everyone is talking out of both sides of their mouths and their actions are saying something else.  It cannot end well.

Meanwhile we pulled out of the Persian Gulf and turn around and do this: http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/27/asia/us-china-south-china-sea/index.html

Are we going to play chicken with the Chinese in their own back yard? For what?  It makes us much sense as us interfering in Russia’s backyard with the Ukraine. That’s not our business.

All the Chinese they have to do is stick out their hand out and say “pay up, suckers” and down we go. They own a big chunk of our debt. Cut off the exports to Wal-Mart for a month or two and watch what happens to The Great Consumer. A shot never has to be fired.

Being in proxy wars with Russia and China are fruitless and profitless ventures by even the most forgiving of standards. There is no upside here.

It’s no wonder people are impressed with Putin and the Russians. At least with them what you see is what you get, it’s coherent, it’s logical, and it makes sense. If Putin tells you he’s going to do something, he does it. People may not like a lot of it but there is something to be said for the rest of that.

USA foreign policy makes zero sense to me.

In Ezekiel 38 that huge alliance moves in against Israel and this verse always make me chuckle:

13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

…and nothing happens.  They whine and wring their wrists from the sidelines and that’s the last we see or hear from them. If that isn’t the West right now I don’t know what is.

CONCLUSION:

All of these things together really tell me that Satan knows his time is running short. Why else have we seen such an obvious ramp up in all of these things and more in just a few years? We turned some kind of corner recently.   The speed at which things are moving now have an outright sense of urgency to them like someone is trying to beat the clock.  Luke 21, Mark 13, Matthew 24 birth pangs increasing in intensity and frequency across the boards is my call.

“The only way out of this mess is up!” – L.A. Marzulli

An End Times Snapshot 10-21-2015

Not a terribly original or exciting blog title but it will do. 🙂

I want to take a look at several stories that crossed my path that continue to paint an unmistakable picture to me that not only are we in the season before the Jesus Christ’s return but we are very close to it.

Things are moving so fast every day now which is to be expected if we follow the birth pangs analogy Jesus gave in Luke 21, Mark 13, and Matthew 24 and I firmly hold to that as the intensity and frequency of ALL of those factors are clearly on the uptick.

MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.news.com.au/world/russia-releases-shockingly-clear-footage-of-the-devastation-surrounding-damascus/story-fndir2ev-1227576520336

This is astounding war footage just “as is.”  out of Damascus. The Russians have been kicking butt and taking names. There is no question about that.

What makes it even more profound potentially is, for students of Bible prophecy, we know that Isaiah 17 forecasts an absolute and final destruction of Damascus. This has never happened in history and there are many of us who lean towards the idea that we have been seeing this prophecy in slow motion setup ever since the war broke out there.

The language in that passage describes a culminating shock and awe finisher of some sort. It could be nuclear. It could be biological. It could be supernatural. It might even be all of the above. We don’t know for sure but given the fact that the bulk of the Ezekiel 38 players are on stage now and in their correct positions makes me believe that Isaiah 17 at minimum is not far off from fulfillment.

The Russian involvement and escalation in the Middle East is a game changer and a point of no return and numerous people in and out of Christendom broadly agree for a wide variety of reasons.

Back on October 2, DEBKA reported that the Chinese were preparing to enter the fray as well on the side of the Russians and they and a few other outlets are stubbornly holding to that story as of this date.They have even repeated it several times. They have earned the benefit of the doubt with me at this point given a solid track record but… The Chinese appear to be taking the “slow boat” on showing up. *insert deserved groans here*  Sorry, I couldn’t resist. 😉

Where are they? I really wish DEBKA or someone would follow up on that story and lock it down with more authority.

To the best of my knowledge, the Chinese have not yet arrived although there are some stray mixed stories to that effect.

If and when the Chinese get involved it’s another game changer. I think they will because the eventual Kings of the East need to have more of an escalated interest in the area for at least financial interests.  The “stick it to the USA” concept likely has something going for it but that wouldn’t be enough in and of itself.  Economics and oil are huge motivators for a lot of what we are seeing.  The Chinese have been making inroads in the ME in recent years by making deals with Saudis and so forth. It makes sense they would want to “protect their investments” and so forth.

All of these things are always backdropped by the spiritual component. Everything stems off of that and we can’t forget it. Clearly the principalities and players behind the scenes on any all levels are shifting and moving. The stage is getting set.

Watch it closely.  One spark and domino could set off everything else and it could come quickly. We see through a glass dimly but the outlines are getting a little clearer each day.

Keep praying and to quote Gary Stearman at Prophecy Watchers: “Keep watching, everybody…”  because this rollercoaster is moving faster each day.

Keep praying.  Try and stay in the Bible as much as you can each day even if all you can do is read the same few sentences repeatedly if you’re in the midst of hardship.  It can get that way. It isn’t about quantity, it’s about quality and a relationship with He who loves us more than we will ever understand on this side.

^^ I highly recommend these materials.  To see it well documented in black and white and on video just how much radical change has taken place on the Earth inside of a decade and all birth pangs categories is staggering.

THE TEMPLE MOUNT:

1.) http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/202224#.Viec8iuKKBV

This Temple Mount issue went from being not mentioned at all to a burgeoning geopolitical hotbed issue in a handful of years.

Anyone that has a passing familiarity with Bible prophecy knows that the Temple has to be rebuilt and in place for the AntiChrist to eventually walk in there and commit the “Abomination of Desolation.”

This tension and fervor has led to increasing violence and what is essentially a new Intifada whether everyone wants to admit it or not. Abbas said a month ago at the UN that Oslo was terminated and everyone knew what that meant despite the lame attempts of others in the PLO to walk the comments back.  The several times a day and growing stabbing attacks and worse make it very clear that people got the message and it’s not a good one.

It’s a common belief that the Vatican is sitting on untold amounts of wealth and it would not surprise me at all if there is at least some truth to the idea that they are sitting on at least some of the Temple heirlooms and relics. Make of it what you will.  This is fairly detailed treatise.

The Bible gives us a good amount of the “what” in terms of prophecy but it doesn’t necessarily give us a lot of the  “how” as in “how do we get from point A to point B?”

CULTURE:

Zombie Con? So shocking that an act of violence happened at an event where people celebrate the “undead.”   Are you kidding? What kind of deviant and demented society has practically a fetish to celebrate violence, gore, necromancy, and the undead?

We have become so desensitized to this…no accident… that last week an awful story came out of Ohio about a lady’s body being left for dead on a fence and everyone from the cops on through paid it no mind thinking it was a zombie Halloween decoration.

Somehow Halloween…a high Unholy Satanic holiday…kicks off a two month orgy of dissociation, partying, consumerism,  and checking out.  Call a doctor’s office in mid to late November to get something done and you will see what I mean. The holidays are ruined. Even if you don’t want to be “Scrooge” this nonsense makes you become one.

None of this is an accident. IMHO during the Tribulation we read awful and unreal descriptions in the book of Revelation of creatures coming out of the pit and people who have a time where they try to die and can’t… if that isn’t a zombie I don’t know what is.

It is my OPINION that the world is being desensitized and conditioned ahead of time so when these things comes to pass it will be all but shrugged off as normal.

I have another theory about this that involved the magical word “hybrid” and ties into the whole UFO abduction discussion that I could get into but suffice to say for now: If you have a bunch of people mutilating themselves to a point where they don’t even look human any more and we have plenty of that… IF there are any kind of demonic hybrids walking around…they would look a lot more “normal” vs the people mutilating themselves.  It’s brilliant cover if there is an issue. Just sayin’.    Jesus said it would be like the days of Noah before His return and there were no caveats or exceptions cited. Genesis 6 tells you what that means right on up to the Flood itself.

I appreciate a healthy skepticism. I have some of it myself. I have no proof of a hybrid issue nor do I hope to ever run across one in person.  I cannot state anything definitively past that either way although I can appreciate why there could be a potential Genesis 6 retread backdoor attempt concept in play via the UFO abduction set.   It’s worth researching carefully and taking note of.

Put all of this together and it’s hard for me to believe it’s all for nothing.

Back to the Future 2 day:   We sure were more wide eyed and optimistic in a pre 9-11, pre terrorism jihadist, pre open globalism left and right world weren’t we?  It’s interesting and fun to compare what they projected for our time and what they got right and didn’t.

Sadly, the alternate 1985 that was portrayed in this movie is a lot closer to where we are at and that’s worth considering on its own. In this movie, the wrecked timeline’s 1985 was a crime ridden, debauched, dark, Las Vegas- on-steroids essentially.

I will say this: The Cubs success is downright astounding and if they win it all that’s the biggest lock for nearness of the Apocalypse if ever I’ve seen and Zemeckis and his film crews’ prophetic status is secured.  😀

PERSONAL NOTE:

One of the reasons this blog was not active was this past year was a very challenging one for myself and my family. The short version for now is we went to Spiritual Warfare 3.0 and we were absolutely not ready. We got caught in a high-end spiritual entrapment that involved a legalist cult masquerading as something else,  We had a real life “multiple” target  us and ultimately this entire thing was about destroying us.There is another controversial concept.

Our family is technically an ecclesia. “When two or more are gathered in My name, I am there.”  Jesus wasn’t kidding about that and I want to encourage any of you reading this because I realize the “lonely/isolated feeling boat” is MUCH larger than I may have thought and that is also an end times symptom.  Breakdown of society fundamentals and all that goes with it. Divide and conquer are tactics of the enemy. This subject alone could be a very lengthy series of entries.   I call it New World Order Fallout and there are a slew of symptoms fall into that box.  Harping on symptoms is easy.  Going after the cause is something else entirely which is SIN.

The good news is: This year-long entrapment attempt and setup ultimately failed thanks to the Lord. There is the expected fallout from something like this that we covet your prayers on for healing and we are coming along thanks to the support we have had.

I freely admit that I understood the MPD/DID and SRA concept “on paper”  and agreed with it to a point at least so far as knowing “it was out there” and there were real victims… I understood the concept and that’s one thing… SEEING it with our own eyes is something else entirely.

There is a lot of nonsense out there in a number of these controversial topics and fields. Always carefully do your homework and pray to the Lord for wisdom and discernment. Check everything against His Word and you will never go wrong. 🙂

The theme I keep running into including interviews with pastors is being surprised and shocked at the level of spiritual attacks that happened and why. This included us and includes a number of my friends and people in spheres of acquaintance that I have had discussions with over the last few years.

We ourselves took it for granted that we were just “normal run of the mill Christians/regular people” not in ministry and not out on the front lines…. doesn’t matter. That’s not how this works and we got educated on that the hard way.

If you are even remotely trying to walk with the Lord you have a bullseye on your back because Satan is about robbing, killing, and destroying and if he can shipwreck Christians to a point of ineffectiveness or worse than he’s all for it and that’s what he is going to do.  We all need to remember Ephesians 6 and 1 John 4 and I highly recommend an in-depth study of these as soon as you can.  A friend of mine made a very good point about the Armor of God in Ephesians 6: It’s never supposed to come off.

If God has you in a position where all you can do is pray…then do it with all your might. Prayer is SO underestimated and undervalued it’s not even funny.

God always knows what He is doing even if we don’t!

CONCLUSION:

In the hopefully not too distant future, Lord willing, more detailed blog entries will be going up about all of these things.

Stay in prayer and stay in the Bible as much as you can. If you’re having a tough time and we all do at least work into the Psalms and the book of John. If you have to read the same sentence repeatedly to get something out of it then do it. Fight through. It’s about a relationship, not religion. Religion stifles, stagnates, chokes, and kills. That’s the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches and what the Gospel is about regardless of what names and permutations it comes under. Fear, works, guilt, “improve  your status with God”, earn/keep your salvation… the focus is about “me” in all of those things instead of “God” and that means you need to get away from it.  This, too, goes to some of what this last year was about for us.

The saving Gospel of Jesus Christ which is spelled out very cleanly in John 3 and especially starting with verse 16 and 1 Corithians 15 guarantees that you will be protected and taken above and/or through anything in His peace and love. There isn’t much time left to make that decision. It’s the most important decision you will ever make. Why wait any longer?  Decide where you want to spend eternity because eternity is one blink away.
