Psalm 83 Builds

This is a great article by Caroline Glick. It talks about the coming war with Israel and Iran...which will almost certainly start by Iran ordering it's proxies (Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria) to attack Israel. This will be done in an attempt to buy more time for Iran to cook it's nuclear weapons.

What is amazing is that a head dude from the United Arab Emirates said that if the USA doesn't stop Iran from getting a bomb (attack her) that they will be forced to abandon their relationship with the USA to appease Iran.

Otaiba said that the Arab states of the Persian Gulf cannot live with a nuclear Iran, that he supports military strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities and that if the US fails to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power, the Arab states of the Gulf will abandon their alliances with the US in order to appease Iran. Otaiba rejected the notion that a nuclear-armed Iran can be contained stating, "Talk of containment and deterrence really concerns me and makes me very nervous."

And then the article ends with this paragraph;

What this means is that for better or for worse, under Obama the US is far less relevant than it was four years ago. And this frees Netanyahu to fight the coming war on Israel's terms. Iran's domestic troubles and the Arab world's genuine fear of a nuclear armed Iran provide Israel with a rare opportunity to radically shift the balance of power in the region for the better. It is time for Netanyahu to lead.

Now, go read Psalm 83 and see if the fulfillment of that prophecy won't radically ship the balance of power in the region for the better.

Muslims Blow Up Muslims--Blame U.S.

This would be typical rhetoric that you would expect coming out of just wonder how many people actually believe it. I hope not many....but with Islam and the 1500 years of non-stop just never know.

It seems some Sunni Muslims did some suicide bombings in Iran and blew up a bunch of Shiite Muslims all hanging around their mosque. And even though a Sunni Muslim group proudly claimed responsibility for the carnage....the Iranian Government blamed the U.S.

An Iran mosque twin suicide bombing killed at least 27 people Thursday. It is in an event that is expected to intensify tensions between Tehran and Washington, as Iran alleges that the US, UK, and other external powers trained and funded the attackers.

Sunni militant group Jundallah claimed responsibility for the attacks in southeastern Iran on the Shiite mosque. Iranian authorities are investigating the explosions, which also killed members of the elite Revolutionary Guard.

See it here;

When any country starts down the war path....the first thing they need to do is blame an outside evil force. And yes....even the USA will do (has done) that.

North Korean Defectors

The news that is being reported by North Korean soldiers who have defected to China...brings the "rumors of war" category a little further down the path.

Previously considered to be among the regime's most important assets, the North Korean People's Army has always been well provisioned in order to ensure the troops remain loyal.

But a poor harvest and the disastrous revaluation of the North Korean currency in November of last year has worsened the nation's already dire economic straits.

Defectors have claimed that they were required to survive on noodles made of ground corn and that meat or fish were a luxury, a journalist for Japan's Asahi Shimbun reported from the Chinese city of Shenyang.

The defectors have claimed that senior members of the party and the armed forces were stockpiling provisions, another indication that the regime is steeling itself for a military confrontation.

See it here;

So does the story have a happy ending? After all, the soldiers got away from North Korea and shared valuable information with China.

Yeah....that part of the world is not such a nice place to the article ends with;

The defectors apprehended by the Chinese were reportedly returned to North Korea, where they face execution.

Thank you Jesus that I was born in America, have never gone hungry, have nice parents, went to nice schools, have a nice church that I can sing my lungs out at, have Christian radio I listen to everyday for great sermons and music, sleep peacefully every night without worrying about being murdered, abducted, or raped, and can speak freely and critically about my government.

Upper Atmosphere Collapses

This is pretty funny to see the rocket scientists scratching their heads. They seem to be baffled that they can't explain how the entire universe functions. Mankind seems to have entered a stage of extreme arrogance.

An upper layer of Earth's atmosphere recently collapsed in an unexpectedly large contraction, the sheer size of which has scientists scratching their heads, NASA announced Thursday.

The layer of gas – called the thermosphere – is now rebounding again. This type of collapse is not rare, but its magnitude shocked scientists.

"This is the biggest contraction of the thermosphere in at least 43 years," said John Emmert of the Naval Research Lab, lead author of a paper announcing the finding in the June 19 issue of the journal Geophysical Research Letters. "It's a Space Age record."

Did you catch those words like, "shocked scientists" and "space age record"?

See it here;

Remember that the Bible tells us that one day the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll. And when that day comes...arrogant mankind will finally realize that they are in control of NOTHING and understand NOTHING when it comes to God's universe.

Earthquake Rocks D.C.

Of course you know we have been watching for earthquakes in "various" places...and this morning we got another one in a strange place.

WASHINGTON — The largest earthquake ever recorded near the capital rattled Washington, D.C., early Friday, waking many residents but causing no reported damage.

Did you catch those buzzwords? "Largest" and "Ever". That's another thing we have been watching for.

And then later into the article we have mention (again) of the massive earthquake that struck the New Madrid fault that runs through Missouri, Arkansas and up into Illinois. (we have blogged on this little known fault in the past)

A sequence of great earthquakes occurred in the Mississippi Embayment in 1811 and 1812, which were noticed by people over an area of 2 million square miles, including D.C., where people were "badly frightened," according to records.

See it here;

It sure seems like someone is trying to get some body's attention. I wonder what it will take to wake everyone up?

Middle Class Being Wiped Out

What is that giant sucking sound we hear? According to this article it it the sound of the U.S. middle class being wiped out.

The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer at a staggering rate. Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a blinding pace.

The reality is that no matter how smart, how strong, how educated or how hard working American workers are, they just cannot compete with people who are desperate to put in 10 to 12 hour days at less than a dollar an hour on the other side of the world. After all, what corporation in their right mind is going to pay an American worker 10 times more (plus benefits) to do the same job? The world is fundamentally changing. Wealth and power are rapidly becoming concentrated at the top and the big global corporations are making massive amounts of money. Meanwhile, the American middle class is being systematically wiped out of existence as U.S. workers are slowly being merged into the new "global" labor pool.

The truth is that the middle class in America is dying -- and once it is gone it will be incredibly difficult to rebuild.

See it here;'s-the-stats-to-prove-it-520657.html?tickers=%5EDJI,%5EGSPC,SPY,MCD,WMT,XRT,DIA

Did you catch that "blinding pace" reference? I couldn't help but think of Jesus' words when he said that Last-Days things will happen a flood.

I wonder if this is what Revelation 6:6 is talking about when it mentions that during The Tribulation most people will be working non stop just to pay for enough food to keep themselves alive....but when it says, "...and do not damage the oil and the wine", it may be referring to the wealthy people who can still afford such luxuries?

No doubt the world is splitting up rapidly into the ultra rich and those just working to survive.

Iran and Missile Defense

Many of you have heard me talk and blog about EMP's. (Electro Magnetic Pulse) It is caused when a nuclear weapon is detonated at high altitude and the effects of it break everything on the ground that runs on electricity...including the power grid itself.

Obviously for a country like America that virtually RUNS on EMP over the USA would turn us into helpless animals in a real hurry.

At this point some will say, "That could never happen!" If asked why they think it could never happen you may get the response, "Because we're America!"

Yesterday in the Wall Street Journal, the ex-director of the CIA wrote an article about Iran and their quest for nuclear weapons....and he also talks about EMP's.

In a June 27 interview on ABC's "This Week," CIA Director Leon Panetta warned that it could be a mere two years before Iran is able to threaten other states with nuclear warheads mounted on ballistic missiles. When discussing the new U.S. sanctions against Iran recently signed into law by President Barack Obama, Mr. Panetta said, "Will it deter them from their ambitions with regards to nuclear capability? Probably not."

A December 2009 missile launch proved Iran has already obtained the ability to reach Israel. Given President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's and other Iranian leaders' millenarian fanaticism, it would be most imprudent to rely on nuclear deterrence alone to protect us. If Tehran were to achieve a nuclear missile capability, it could hold American cities hostage—unless, that is, the U.S. builds a robust and comprehensive ballistic missile defense.

But last September the Obama administration scrapped the Bush plan and replaced it with one called the Phased Adaptive Approach, which is less capable of dealing with threats against U.S. territory. This plan entails deploying mobile systems to Europe to intercept short-range missiles. The Defense Department would gradually upgrade these systems, but the plan offers no added protection for the U.S. until 2020. That's almost certainly too little too late.

Further, if the Iranians were to detonate even a primitive nuclear warhead over the United States, it could send out an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) destroying the electric grid and electrical systems across a wide swath of U.S. territory. Iranian military writings show the mullahs recognize the potential of this kind of attack. Depending on where it occurred and how large the warhead was, an EMP attack could cause large-scale fatalities and unimaginable economic devastation. Defending against this kind of threat requires defensive systems that can intercept an attacking ballistic missile while it is still ascending. But the Obama administration has no specific plans to develop and deploy ascent-phase interceptors in Europe.

See it here;

Did you catch that? Iranian military has already recognized that an EMP attack would be an awesome way to destroy America. And if America was out of the way, they could finally get rid of those pesky Jews in Israel.

Does anyone believe it would be prudent to sacrifice U.S. lives and treasure to deny Iran a nuclear bomb? Can we afford to keep borrowing money to fight in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran? Do we have a choice?

Or should we just cross our fingers and hope for the best?

Again, we KNOW America isn't around when The Tribulation how did we vanish? Could it be that we got so complacent, apathetic and addicted to electricity...and so confident that no one could ever take us down....that we simply refused to imagine the unimaginable?

Could one small missile launched from one small ship really take down the greatest country in the history of the world?

I hope someone in the Pentagon is thinking about the unthinkable.

IMF Playing Larger Role

A few years ago, few would have even heard of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and today it seems like they are in the headlines a few times per week.

The latest headline is that the IMF is urging Japan to raise taxes to avoid a serious financial problem.

July 14 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund on Wednesday urged Japan to act soon to reduce its huge public debt using measures including a gradual increase in its consumption tax.

The IMF said the severe recession and large fiscal stimulus measures pushed Japan's public debt to 218 percent of GDP. Without a fiscal adjustment, public debt would rise and approach 250 percent of GDP by 2030, it added.

With the proportion of debt to GDP reaching historical levels and one of the highest among rich nations, the IMF said fiscal consolidation was unavoidable in Japan.

See it here;

Why is this interesting? Because you can see how the IMF is going to soon need to loan money to countries to keep them afloat. Once that happens the, "Debtor will be slave to the lender". The IMF will soon be able to call all the financial shots.

And of course it makes no global sense to have 190 different currencies because it costs the global economy $billions of wasted time to convert and transfer those currencies.

So at some point the IMF will suggest that we have a global currency...just one monetary system for us all.

As one famous prophecy watcher is fond of saying, "You can almost hear the footsteps of the Antichrist."

Encourage each other with the fact that the church will not be hear when the Antichrist is revealed. (2 Thessalonians)

Harvard Prof Says U.S. Debt Crisis Coming

The Harvard economist's name is Niall Ferguson. I read his book last year and I remember it being very logical, plus he does a good job of staying away from shrill tones and I liked him.

A few days ago, Niall was on Yahoo Finance being interviewed....and he hasn't changed his logical conclusion that the USA is in a heap of trouble because of our massive debt.

Ignore the uber-low yields on U.S. government debt. It's only a matter of time before markets lose confidence in the U.S. government argues Harvard professor Niall Ferguson.

Right now Washington is benefiting from global worries, such as those being seen in Europe, but that won't last for long. If you want to look for a pivotal moment: Watch for when debt interest payments begin to eclipse defense payments. In fact, this will happen inevitably, even if there's no imminent spike in Treasury yields. It's inevitable, until and unless, lawmakers show the political will to put the country on a "credible path" of fiscal responsibility, Ferguson says.

You can watch the short video here;,tbt,%5Edji,%5Egspc,spy,%5Eftse

Did you catch that, "lose confidence" part?

Anyone who has heard me speak has heard me talk about the fact that the U.S. money system is only backed by the "full faith and confidence of the U.S. Government." So what happens if confidence in the U.S. Government vanishes?

Again, we don't see America ANYWHERE in Biblical prophecy? So what happens to her? Financial collapse, solar storms break the power grid, rapture of 30,000,000 folks, huge earthquake overloads our infrastructure, nuclear terrorism, etc...

Only confidence in Jesus Christ will see us through the coming storm.

Follow Up on NASA and Muslims

On July 7, we did a post called NASA and Muslims....which you can click and read now if you didn't read it then.

This post is a follow up to it...because of course the White House will need to do "clarify" what the NASA head had "actually" heard from Obama.

Yep....I get it.

WASHINGTON, July 12, 2010 (Reuters) — White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Monday that NASA administrator Charles Bolden was wrong to say that reaching out to the Muslim world was a top priority of the U.S. space agency.

Bolden raised eyebrows in the space community and outrage among conservative pundits by telling Al-Jazeera television recently President Barack Obama had instructed him to work for better outreach with the Muslim world.

He said Obama told him one of his top priorities was to "find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering." (Oh yeah....back to that whole participation ribbon thing...where everyone gets a ribbon!!)

The White House last week sought to clarify Bolden's comment, saying Obama wanted NASA to engage with the world's best scientists and engineers from countries like Russia and Japan, Israel and many Muslim-majority countries.

That failed to end the controversy.

Gibbs, at his daily news briefing, was asked why Bolden had made the comment.
"It's an excellent question, and I don't think -- that was not his task, and that's not the task of NASA," Gibbs said.

See it here;

In the past few days, angry Muslims blew up and killed 80 people watching the World Cup in Uganda. On that same day angry Muslims also blew up and killed a few hundred in Pakistan as they just went about their daily business....and that was other Muslims they killed!!

With angry, apocalyptic Muslims running all over Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia, Europe, America and South there anyone who truly believes that Muslims are going to be big contributors to the NASA space project?

Also if there are top scientists in the Muslim world who NASA could recruit to work on space missions.... I wonder where they went to college? I wonder if every top scientist currently in the Muslim world was educated somewhere in The West?

I'm gonna bet a dollar that they were.

Of course, if we educated a super bright Muslim from Egypt in rocket science....and he has shown a love for America and wants to work for NASA rather than the N0-SPACE-PROGRAM Egyptians...then let NASA hire him if he passes all the FBI checks.

But I sure hope the country of Egypt doesn't receive a NASA-PARTICIPATION-RIBBON from Team Obama simply because NASA has a scientist who was born in Egypt but educated in the USA!

That would seem silly.

Obama Nominates a Jew

Not sure what to make of this news. On the one hand Obama realizes talent when he sees it, and this Jew named Jack Lew (yes, I rhymes) worked budget magic for Bill Clinton...and Team Obama is in desperate need of some magic.

Also, Obama knows he needs to keep courting the U.S. Jewish population which votes Democrat...and may be falling away fast from Team Obama as they hear from their Israeli relatives...who by a vast majority can't stand Obama.

Or, maybe God wants to save the USA from financial destruction and has plans to insert one of His chosen people to come and restore confidence to the U.S. budget?

We will need to watch this one closely.

Here is the headline today;

Obama Asks Religious Jew to Cure $1 Trillion Budget Disease

U.S. President Barack Obama has nominated Deputy Secretary of State Jacob (Jack) Lew, a religious Jew, as his new director of a budget that suffers from a budget deficit approaching $1.3 trillion. The appointment must be confirmed by the Senate, which may question Lew whether he can function while observing the Sabbath.

One story making the rounds in the United States is that Lew, when he was director for the Office of Management and Budget for former U.S. President Bill Clinton, refused to answer an urgent phone call from the president on the Sabbath, when using the phone is prohibited except in life-saving situations.

As Clinton's budget director, Lew performed the rare feat of operating three budgets without increasing the national deficit.

"If there was a Hall of Fame for budget directors, then Jack Lew surely would have earned a place for his service in that role under President Clinton, when he helped balance the federal budget after years of deficits," President Obama said.

Lew left the Clinton administration with a record $236 million budget surplus but now inherits a whopping $1 trillion deficit for the first nine months of 2010, and it may reach $1.3 trillion by the end of the year.

See it here;

Also remember that the religious Jews are going to fall for the Antichrist and his plans at first...following the rapture of the church. It won't be until he has access to the Third Temple and declares himself to be God that they will realize they have been duped.

If Obama is, in fact, a foreshadowing of the wouldn't surprise me at all to see him surround himself with Jews in an attempt to bring back his sliding popularity and public confidence.

Empty Store Shelves

Of course none of us KNOW for sure how things are going to unravel and America....but more and more folks who are plugged into the Word of God are coming to the conclusion that they are unraveling...and it could happen VERY fast.

Jesus said that the end will come like a flood. It's possible that the end of America will also happen very quickly and in a very dramatic way.

And this recently released video may be a foreshadowing of what is coming for us IF the world loses confidence in the U.S. dollar.

Last spring a water main broke out in Massachusetts and when the order went out that people needed to boil their water or risk getting sick....there was a run on the grocery stores for bottled water.

As the video points was amazing to see how quickly people turn into animals when you threaten their necessities.

See video here;

Notice how the video says it would be a good idea to have 6 months of supplies on hand for your family to survive a hyperinflation in the U.S. They also say to plant a garden so you have some source of food. I guess that would work if it was spring or summer....but how about if it's in Minnesota in the dead of winter?

As Christians, I don't believe we are called to sell our stuff and move to Montana and live in a cave waiting for Jesus to come. I have an idea that folks that do that would be spoken of by Jesus in the parable of the talents. Those folks were the ones who were given one talent and then buried it....returning nothing for the Master....and in turn receiving no praises from the Master.

But maybe we are called to see the signs of the times and invest our resources when the Master does come he will tell us, "Well done good and faithful servant."

Turkey Adopts Hamas Agenda

OK, we know that Hamas is the political party that took control of the Gaza strip. If you read the political agenda of Hamas you will quickly realize that they are some of them most hateful, anti-Semites in the world.

This fact alone shouldn't surprise you....since the Arabs have successfully convinced the people living in Gaza that their problems are all caused by the Israeli "occupation" it would be only natural after 40+ years of telling this lie, that most of the folks hearing it would believe it.

But if this next report coming out of the Middle East turns out to be true...the situation in Israel could get dicier by the day.

ANKARA [MENL] -- The Islamist government of Turkish Prime Minister RecepErdogan has adopted the agenda of the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip, asenior analyst said.

Soner Cagaptay, a senior researcher at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said Erdogan and his supporters have become the leading supporters of Hamas in the Middle East. In an analysis that appeared in the Turkish media, Cagaptay said Erdogan's Justice and Development Party has led the new Turkish policy of embracing Hamas and other Islamic regimes in the region.

Wow!! Turkey has become the leading supporters of Hamas?? We will need to verify this in the next few days of news cycle, but this could be simply amazing.

Looking For Jesus

I had seen these Pew Research Center results regarding Jesus' return a few weeks when I saw this post from one of the head honchos at Rapture Ready....I figured it was worth posting in it's entirety.

The British paper, the Telegraph, recently featured a headline that read: "Jesus will return by 2050, say 40 percent of Americans." The poll was by the Pew Research Center for the People and The Press/Smithsonian Magazine.

Several polls were included in the article, but the author obviously chose to go with Christ’s return date as the lead because he found it incredibly odd that 40 percent of the American people believe such a thing.

I think this is a rather low number for a nation with 85 percent of its population claiming to be Christian. After all, the Pew poll also found that 46 percent of the population doubts the return of Christ will happen. Judging by the state of the world, I would think that 2020 would have been a more reasonable date to ponder.

One of the greatest problems in the church today is that believers are not looking for the return of their Savior. I find it extremely problematic for someone to claim to be a Christian and yet doubt the Second Advent of Christ. Jesus said He would return, so to claim otherwise is to call Him a liar.

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation" (2 Pet. 3:3-4).

The people who reject the return of Jesus Christ to earth are making a big mistake. The rapture of believers is a rescue mission. This world is doomed to destruction, and our greatest hope is to be part of the group that will be allowed to escape the horrors soon to come.

I see the timing of the return of Christ as very similar to how the U.S. Postal Service works. When I order something on eBay or Amazon, I don't know exactly when the item is going to arrive in my mailbox, but I have a general idea of when it's coming.

I once ordered an item from a seller in Texas, and it took nearly two weeks for the package to go from the Dallas area to here in Benton, Arkansas. I've also had the same type of item come to me unbelievably fast. I recently ordered an item from a seller in the Boston area. I ordered it on a Friday and it arrived at my home on Monday.

Thanks to modern technology, I can follow its general progression. I once ordered a kitchen utensil from a vendor in St. Charles, Ill. Over the course of four days, the package passed through Chicago, Ill; Champaign, Il; Memphis, TN; Little Rock, AR ; and then on to Benton.

By analogy, the Bible provides us with a general way of knowing how close we are to the end of the church age. For nearly 2000 years, prophecy has wandered from point to point, moving toward fulfillment in a general sense. In 1948, Israel was reborn and we knew prophecy had reached the regional hub.

When my packages arrived in the Little Rock area, I knew it would be a short period of time before the mail carrier delivered them to me. I don’t know how the logistical connection works between all the other cities in America, but I know there is a daily route between Little Rock and Benton.

Even though my packages are only thirty miles away from me, I might still face a delay. By analogy, prophecy's fulfillment might take a couple hundred more years. Someone might argue that since it took 1878 years to reach the point of Israel's rebirth, we could still be facing a long wait. Thankfully, we have been blessed with further indicators of the shortness of the end times.

Once a package arrives in your regional sorting facility, it goes out to the post office that supplies your area. When it gets into the hands of the mail carrier, the package is marked "out for delivery." I think we are at the point that prophecy should be labeled "out for delivery."

Every major prophecy that has a possibility of being fulfilled before the rapture is in some form of active development. One of our head news posters on our daily page made an observation that struck home. He said there were so many news stories related to prophecy that we had run out of space on the news page. Rapture Ready has had a daily news page for nearly ten years, and we've never had a problem with having too many news items.

I live in a little valley here. The two blocks that parallel my block receive mail before me, as is the course of the normal mail route. Some days, I can see the mailman snaking around the ridge. Again, by analogy, I think we are at the point that we are catching glimpses of that little white truck, and it's only a matter of time before it turns onto our block.

See it here;

Anyone who has heard me speak in adult education at BCC know that I used to have to hunt the headlines for weeks on end to come up with an hour long class...and that was only three years ago! The last times I spoke this spring, there were so many prophetic headlines happening so frequently that I struggled to get past 1-2 days of headlines and we still couldn't get them all in during a one hour class. Turns out the dude's at Rapture Ready are having the same many prophetic daily headlines that the website runs out of posting space.

No doubt friends....the contractions are happening with a growing frequency.

So if you hear a really loud trumpet and the voice of the archangel and see dead Christians flying out of their graves....please don't be surprised.

Israel Warns Libya

First it was Turkey who tried to break the Israeli blockade of Hamas in Gaza. And of course that led to all sorts of Muslim angst against Israel.

Now it's Libya's turn attempt to break the blockade. And Israel is telling them they won't do it.

A Libyan ship carrying aid and activists is heading for Gaza in a mission that Israel has described as an "unnecessary provocation".

The Israeli navy is monitoring the vessel's progress and preparing to intervene if it continues on a course to Gaza.

"I say very clearly, no ship will arrive in Gaza. We will not permit our sovereignty to be harmed," the foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said in a radio broadcast.

The ship, Amalthea, sailed from Greece at the weekend. It is carrying up to 15 activists and 2,000 tonnes of food and medicine, according to the organisers, a charity chaired by a son of the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

See it here;

What makes this news even more interesting is that the OT prophet, Ezekiel, told us that in the very last days that a coalition of nations would attempt to destroy Israel...and Libya was mentioned 2800 years ago as being one of the players in that coalition.

So as we watch The Day draw close it should not surprise us to see Russia, Turkey, Iran, Ethiopia, Sudan, Libya and others start to show animosity towards Israel.

One other obvious tip off that this Libyan mission IS NOT for humanitarian aid.....the Libyan people are poor beyond belief and Libya is not a country that is real concerned about human rights.
