Calling Up Spirits

Uh-oh.  Looks like there could be trouble in Iran....trouble of the supernatural kind.

Allies of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were arrested this week for being "magicians" and invoking spirits, Iranian website reported on Wednesday.

Ahmadinejad's chief of staff Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei as well as other people close to the Iranian president were accused of invoking djinns.

 One of the arrested men, Abbas Ghaffari, was called "a man with special skills in metaphysics and connections with the unknown worlds," Iranian news site Ayandeh reported.

See it here;

We have heard rumors that Ahmadinejad and some of his ilk have been physically interacting with a spirit that they believe is the 12th Imam.

Of course Ahmadinejad is not familiar with 1 John 4 which gives us a method to test the spirits.  If he did....he would certainly discover that the spirit he and his friends may be speaking to is NOT the Holy Spirit.

Aliens Make Front Page

The conditioning of planet earth to accept "aliens" continues at warp speed. (Pardon the Star Trek pun)  Today a story about aliens visiting Asia is on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.

For any new readers here, remember that we believe that any creature calling itself an "alien" is really some type of satanic/demon being set out to deceive mankind.  And the encounters with these beings is the Tribulation of earth nears.

Trackers in Colorado at the Mutual UFO Network, one of the oldest unidentified-flying-object research organizations in this world, say that since the slump of the Western banking system in 2008, UFO sightings among Asia's fast-growing economies have accelerated. Suspicious UFOs have shut down airports in China, buzzed resorts in Borneo and lit up the night sky in Myanmar.

"It's not surprising, really," says Debhanom Muangman, a 75-year-old Harvard-educated physician and one of Thailand's leading UFO investigators. "Aliens have been coming to Asia for decades, but now they sense a change. This is where the progressive countries are, so they are coming here much more often now."

On a recent evening, devotees wearing necklaces depicting alien portraits trooped to the top of the hill to harness extraterrestrial energy to treat illnesses by laying on hands, or to meditate before a statue of Buddha. Periodically, people jumped up with video cameras when planes or other, less obvious, light sources appeared before settling in for a night of chanting.

"The aliens have been coming here to Kao Kala for at least 10 years," said Dusadee Prasomsuk, 39 years old. "When we meditate we can understand what they're trying to tell us—we feel it through our bodies and we understand."

Other researchers have gone further. Several members of the Chansamnuen family in Nakhon Sawan province say they have managed to communicate with the aliens telepathically. It began with Cherd Chansamnuen, an army sergeant, who used to go into a trance and then begin speaking and issuing commands in a strangely altered voice.

"The air began crackling," says Thanyasak Patamatanasun, 39 years old, a member of the Kao Kala group who once attended one of Sgt. Cherd's attempts to communicate with extraterrestrial beings. "Then an alien voice spoke to us through Sgt. Cherd and told us he was there to help human beings reach the next level of development."

See it here;

Let's review....people devoid of the Holy Spirit go to a hill top and chant and meditate...asking the "aliens" to come and bring them knowledge of the future.  Can we all see how this invites demonic deception?

Let's review army sergeant goes into a trance and then starts speaking in a strange voice reporting that the "aliens" were there to help humans reach the next level of development.  Can we all see how this may be demonic possession...with the demon speaking lies through a human body?

Luke tells us that the Satanic forces of the Antichrist, the beast and the false prophet will all come with lying signs and wonders.  They will be able to call down fire from the sky in plain view of men.

1 Timothy 4:1 tells us that in the very last days some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

If the demons do show up (dressed as aliens) with all sort of marvelous technology (signs and wonders) and preform miracles (call down fire) and then start telling a story of how they planted humans here thousands of years ago and begin to tell us who Jesus REALLY is...and go on to CLARIFY what the Gospel REALLY meant to many people on planet earth will be able to resist their lying signs and wonders?  How many people will say, "I knew there had to be life out there from other planets!".....yet never imagine in their wildest dreams that these beings are actually from right here in our atmosphere, controlled by their leader, Satan....whom the Bible refers to as the Prince of the Powers of the Air.

Think about it.

Dangers to Global Crops

I don't believe I need to give much commentary before this article.  It gets filed under the, "There will be famine" category of things Christ told us to watch for.

The world food situation is starting to get very, very tight. Unprecedented heat and wildfires this summer in Russia and horrific flooding in Pakistan and China have been some of the primary reasons for the rapidly rising food prices we are now seeing around the globe. In places such as Australia and the African nation of Guinea-Bissau, the big problem for crops has been locusts. In a world that already does not grow enough food for everyone (thanks to the greed of the elite), any disruption in food production can cause a major, major problem. Tonight, thousands of people around the world will starve to death. So what happens if things get even worse? Many agricultural scientists are now warning that global food production is facing dangers that are absolutely unprecedented. Crop diseases such as UG99 wheat rust and the “unintended effects” of genetic modification pose challenges that previous generations simply did not have to face. The outbreak of a real, live global famine looks increasingly possible with each passing year. So are you and your family prepared if a global famine does strike?

See it here;

And of course since this article was written, we have had a biblical flood in Australia and the worst drought in 80 years is affecting Texas and Oklahoma...further pressuring food production.  Oh yeah, throw in the hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland that were just destroyed yesterday in Missouri and Tennessee when they dynamited the levees on the Mississippi.

Remember, we Christians are not to have a spirit of fear.  Christ told us plainly that all these things MUST happen.  Rather, we are supposed to look at all these signs, happening in quick succession, with anticipation because they are letting us know that the King is Coming!!

More Demands for Global Money System

SANYA, China (Reuters) - The BRICS group of emerging-market powers kept up the pressure on Thursday for a revamped global monetary system that relies less on the dollar and for a louder voice in international financial institutions.

The leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa also called for stronger regulation of commodity derivatives to dampen excessive volatility in food and energy prices, which they said posed new risks for the recovery of the world economy.

Meeting on the southern Chinese island of Hainan, they said the recent financial crisis had exposed the inadequacies of the current monetary order, which has the dollar as its linchpin.

What was needed, they said in a statement, was "a broad-based international reserve currency system providing stability and certainty" -- thinly veiled criticism of what the BRICS see as Washington's neglect of its global monetary responsibilities.

The BRICS are worried that America's large trade and budget deficits will eventually debase the dollar. They also begrudge the financial and political privileges that come with being the leading reserve currency.

See it here;

A day is coming...and it may be sooner than later...that the people of the earth will all need to have the mark of the beast in order to participate in this new International Reserve Currency System.

Remember, the USA has had a built-in demand for the U.S. dollar because it was the ONLY reserve currency in the world.  When the day comes where we no longer have that demand...the value of the dollar could have serious gyrations.

"Give to Ceasar what is Ceasar's, and give to God what is God's."

War to Erupt 2012

The article below goes toward all the talk of crazy stuff that may be happening in 2012.

A major war will break out in 2012 and send the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunging to 5,000, says former Goldman Sachs analyst Charles Nenner.

Although the carnage won't take place until the end of next year, the time to get out of the stock market is now.

Just look at the S&P 500 for guidance.

"We went long in 2009 in the first quarter [when] we had a price target of 1,356 on the S&P 500, so we're getting close," Nenner tells Fox News.

"So I told my big clients, hedge funds, pension funds, and big firms to go almost totally out of the market."

War, Nenner says, will spur the massive sell-off in two years, sending the Dow to 5,000.

"I also do war and peace cycles and it shows that were going to have a major war starting at the end of 2012, beginning of 2013. And I think that's going to do it," says Nenner, without providing specifics.

See it here;

Wow!  Dow 5000 and a big ol' world war.  That's quite a prediction.  If the Dow goes to 5000 that would certainly challenge America's faith in Mammon.  And it would certainly challenge the premise of "economic recovery" that we are being told has firmly taken hold.

Satanic Incidences Rising

Unbelievable!  Hundreds of albinos in Tanzania are being raped and murdered for black magic purposes and as an AIDS cure.

DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) – Hundreds of albinos are thought to have been killed for black magic purposes in Tanzania and albino girls are being raped because of a belief they offer a cure for AIDS, a Canadian rights group said on Thursday.

At least 63 albinos, including children, are known to have been killed, mostly in the remote northwest of the country.

"We believe there are hundreds and hundreds of killings in Tanzania, but only a small number are being reported to the police," Peter Ash, founder and director of Under The Same Sun (UTSS), told Reuters.

"There is belief that if you have relations with a girl with albinism, you will cure AIDS. So there are many girls with albinism who are being raped in this country because of this belief, which is a false belief."

Around 1.4 million Tanzanians among a population of 40.7 million have the HIV virus that leads to AIDS.

Albino hunters kill their victims and harvest their blood, hair, genitals and other body parts for potions that witchdoctors say bring luck in love, life and business.

"(It is believed) a person with albinism is a curse. They are from the devil, they are not human, they do not die, they simply disappear," said Ash.

Ernest Kimaya, head of the Tanzania Albino society and a sufferer of the pigment disorder, said social stigma prevented many girls from reporting rape, making it difficult to say how many albinos had been sexually abused.

See it here;

Where do you even start with this one?  They are killing albino people and harvesting their blood (vampirism?), hair, genitals and other body parts to make potions to bring them luck in business and love.

More evidence that all humans are children of the devil...because we think and behave like our father the devil.  Only the light of Jesus Christ can save us from the depravity of our satanic father.

At All Costs

The flotilla of "aid" ships headed for Gaza continues to be in the news.

Of course those in the world who won't cut Israel one single break and believe that EVERYTHING they do is an international crime... want their ships loaded with Twinkies, blankets and marshmallows to make it into Gaza unfettered by those nasty Jews.

Of course the Jews realize that they have a blockade around Gaza because of the thousands of missiles that have been launched into their country.  Those missiles have been smuggled in from somewhere and most likely in a boat.  Also the ruling party in Gaza is Hamas, and they don't believe Israel has a right to exist on one single piece of postage stamp size of course their mission #1 is to see the demise of Israel.

So the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) will certainly not let a bunch of ships sail into Gaza without boarding those ships and searching them to make sure a missile isn't hidden somewhere amongst the marshmallows and Neil Diamond CD's.

The Israeli Defence Forces’ broadcast reported Wednesday noon an official's comments that the country would prevent the second freedom flotilla from reaching Gaza “at all costs.”

The source said that a consensus emerged during the meeting of the Ministers Committee on Security Affairs Wednesday on the necessity of maintaining a strict and complete blockade on Gaza, even if this entails using armed force in preventing the flotilla from entering the strip.

The broadcast mentioned that the Israeli navy and its elite forces are running drills around the clock to use the “wisest” ways in obstructing the flotilla and putting it under their control.

Of course we remember from last year's flotilla...when the IDF came on board the passengers came at them with pipes and knifes.  The Arab propaganda machine quickly photo-shopped the weapons OUT of their hands and then played the news report all over Arabia and Islamaville (yep, I just made that town up) that those nasty Jews had just boarded the Loveboat and killed 9 women and children who were sitting on deck eating marshmallows while listening to Neil Diamond CD's.

The funny thing is....the world SO HATES the Jews, Zionism and Israel....that they eat the photo shopped pictures as fast as the propaganda machine of Arabia can spit them out.

Another Swarm of Quakes

Last week we reported on the swarm of earthquakes happening on the California-Nevada border that was puzzling geologists.  It was puzzling to them because there were hundreds of little quakes happening in a place where they didn't even know a fault existed.

Today we have another swarm of tiny quakes happening on the opposite end of the Maine.

Searsport, Maine - As many as 30 tiny earthquakes have been detected over the last few days in the area between Belfast and Bucksport, but geologists say there's no cause for alarm. 

"Microquakes is what we call them," Henry Berry, a bedrock geologist with Maine Geological Survey, said in a phone interview Tuesday afternoon. "Unless you were right there, you wouldn't notice them." 

But plenty of people have been noticing, Searsport Police Chief Dick LaHaye said Tuesday afternoon, just minutes after he dispatched an officer to Savory Road, where a resident had called to inform authorities about another earthquake.

They've responded to calls about gunshots and shotgun blasts, calls from people who felt their feet vibrate along with the earth and calls about things falling off shelves - all of which were determined to be related to the earthquake, he said. 

See it here;

I think it's funny that the geologists keep telling us that there is no cause for alarm.  Huge quakes happening all over the world, worst flooding on the Mississippi in 80 years, worst droughts in various places in 80 years, worst tornado outbreak ever...but hey, really...there is no cause for alarm.  Nothing is happening!  Now seriously....just go back to sleep....this is all just a teeny, tiny nightmarish type dream....and when you awake....everything will be back to "normal".

You know what I think it is?  I think it's the world groaning as it longs for what it will become when Jesus returns and sets everything straight again.

But of course....I am no geologist.  So go back to sleep.

Treasury Acts to Avoid Default

With the U.S. credit rating being downgraded for the first time EVER last week, we have to be wondering...could the U.S. ever start defaulting on the payments of the $trillions in IOU's it has issued?

Yesterday in the Wall Street Journal we found this headline;

Treasury Will Act to Avoid Default

Treasury Department officials said Monday that they will begin to take extraordinary actions Friday to manage the government's finances so the U.S. won't default after hitting its borrowing limit on May 16.
The moves come amid divisions among congressional leaders over how to raise the $14.29 trillion debt limit and avoid a default that Treasury officials say could cause another financial crisis.
"Default by the United States on its obligations would have a catastrophic economic impact that would be felt by every American," Mr. Geithner wrote. At that point, he said, the government would stop or delay in such payments as military salaries, Social Security checks and tax refunds.
Well...that sounds serious.  As we know Congress is debating whether or not to raise debt limit as we speak...and it appears the Treasury is getting ready for what they heck they can do if it isn't raised.
Also of interest is the date of May 16.  If the flotilla coming from Turkey shows up in Gaza and forces some type if incident on May 15 (as planned)...and the USA starts down some path of "catastrophic economic impact" all at the same may prove interesting.
As the carnival worker always tells us, "Please stay seated with your seat belts fastened until the ride has come to a complete halt".

Hundreds Missing

The historic tornadoes that devastated the south and killed hundreds has also left an eerie headline in today's Wall Street Journal.

Hundreds Remain Missing in South After Tornadoes Devastate Region
"How Can Anyone Just Disappear From the Face of the Earth?"
For the friends and relatives of the hundreds who died in the tornadoes that pounded Alabama and other Southern states last week, there are funerals and wakes. For the families of the hundreds more still believed missing, there are only questions and fear.

But the number of people whose whereabouts remain unknown is far higher. In Tuscaloosa, Ala., alone, the police say there are still 340 people unaccounted for, based on missing-person reports. That number is down from the 458 people on the list as of Sunday.

Meanwhile, in Birmingham, Ala., at least 32 are missing, according to police. As with Tuscaloosa, it's difficult to know how many of those reported missing were killed by last week's siege of tornadoes.

"I don't even want to think about it," said Jean Williams, a Birmingham retiree whose 33-year-old granddaughter and two great-grandchildren are missing. "How can anyone just disappear from the face of the Earth?" she said.

See it here;

Sadly for those lost souls, we realize that their bodies were probably cut into pieces and scattered over a wide swath of destruction...and may never be found.

But could this headline be an ominous foreshadowing of a day, maybe soon coming, when millions of folks will simply disappear from the face of the earth?  Could it be that the "Mother Earth" crew may point to this headline to support their belief that Mother Earth is soon going to be purging millions of people from the planet in an attempt to get herself back in balance?

Satan is cooking something....and the headlines coming out everyday seem to be giving us some clues as to the explanations being hatched that may be used to attempt to explain the rapture of the church to those who are left behind.

U.S Debt Rating Should be a "C"

U.S. debt was in the news a few weeks ago when Standard and Poor's recently downgraded the USA from "stable" to "negative". 

Today we have another rating agency that says we should be graded a "C"....when you look at our financial system and our ability to pay all of our obligations.

"A 'C' is equivalent to approximately a triple-B on the S&P, Moody's and Fitch scales. It's two notches above junk and one notch above the equivalent of a single A," Martin Weiss, President of Weiss Ratings, told CNBC Tuesday.

Weiss was quick to add that while the rating seems weak, the debt situation is not in a danger zone that would trigger panic, noting that there was still broad market acceptance for Treasury's.

The grade reflects the U.S. massive debt burden, low international reserves and the volatility in the American economy, he said.

Here it is;

Did you catch that sentence, "...still a broad market acceptance for U.S. Treasury's"? 

Here's the simple truth....when the broad market quits accepting our Treasury IOU's.....the gig is up, the Ponzi is over.  People will flee out of our system just like Bernie Madoff investors cashed it all in as rumors started swirling about Madoff's bogus financial scheme.

And once the world of investors does a run on our U.S. financial system...there will nothing to support us except the International Monetary Fund. (IMF)

That Satan dude seems to be working over time these days trying to put his last hurrah into play....and a system that requires a mark to buy or sell anything is probably closer to being a reality than most people have ANY clue of.

Destroy Them In a Second

Isaiah 17 starts with, "See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins."  (Remember, Damascus is the capital of Syria)

That same chapter then ends with, "In the evening, sudden terror!  Before the morning, they are gone!  This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us."

When you know what God says in Isaiah....this article made me take notice.

National Union party Chairman MK Yaakov ("Ketzaleh") Katz pushed the envelope of official ambiguity Monday regarding Israel's offensive nuclear capabilities. MK Katz said that Israel has the ability to destroy enemies like Iran and Syria "in a second's time."

The statement is most likely a reference to military nuclear capabilities, which Israel has never officially admitted to possessing.

Speaking at a session of a Knesset lobby dedicated to teaching the lessons of the Holocaust, the fiery, Biblically-bearded MK Katz said the greatest revenge against the Germans, who desired to annihilate the Jewish people, is the Jewish nation's fertility and natural growth.

See it here;

Just remember, Israel will NOT sit and let Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Assad government in Syria all work together to rain down missiles on Israeli civilians.  If war breaks out, look for it to be a VERY short war as I believe Israel will unleash some tactical nuclear weapon and put a quick end to and one intent on raining down missiles.

Of course the world will have a holy cow if Israel goes nuclear and this could lead to what may be the 2nd phase of these Last Days wars which would be the war mentioned in great detail in Ezekiel 38.

Iran and Sudan

In Ezekiel 38, Persia is present day Iran and Cush is present day Sudan and Ethiopia.  It would appear this Ezekiel coalition is continuing to build as the named players step up on stage to play their coming roles.

Iran Urges Expansion of Ties with Sudan
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi underlined Tehran's willingness to further expand ties and cooperation with Sudan, and stressed the need for Tehran and Khartoum to accelerate implementation of the agreements already signed by the two states.
Remember what is so interesting about watching the Ezekiel 38 coalition?....most prophecy watchers believe that rapture of the church will happen BEFORE this war breaks out.
Are you remembering to listen for the trumpet?

Moment of Truth

I enjoy recieving Pastor Greg Laurie's email devotional everyday.  He has really been right on for the past few years as he blows the trumpet in an attempt to wake up the sleepy church...and get them ready to meet the Lord.

I ran across one of his devotions from last month and it was so good, I will post it below;

The Moment of Truth

But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out.
— Numbers 32:23

In 1990, the band Milli Vanilli was awarded a Grammy for Best New Artist. They were quite successful in their day, selling millions of albums. But then it was revealed that they did not do the vocals on their own recordings. Some studio singers had done that. Their Grammy was returned. There came a moment when Milli Vanilli had to face the music.

And there will come a day when everyone will have to face the music as well. There are some who are putting on a good show right now as Christians. They have just about everyone convinced. They have their parents convinced. They have their husband or their wife convinced. They have all of their friends thinking they are very committed believers. But they are living a double life and are fooling them all.

One day, they will face the music. One day, that which is hidden will be revealed. There will be nowhere to hide, and they will realize the only people they were fooling were themselves.

That is why Jesus said, "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth" (Revelation 3:16). That is a repulsive idea, and it is why Jesus used it. He was trying to make a point. He was effectively saying, "I can't stand people who are lukewarm."

What does it mean to be lukewarm? It is a person pretending to be a Christian who is not. To be lukewarm is to be a genuine imitation, a fake. One day we all will stand before God himself. And even if someone has done a brilliant job of fooling others in the church, they, too, will have to face the music.

So don't play games with God. Don't be a fake Christian.

In the Balance

What's it gonna be America?  What will our leaders say?  How many of them have any idea what the God of Israel, Isaac and Jacob may unleash if they touch the "apple of His eye"?  And the headline says:

Egypt calls on US to recognise Palestinian state
Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi on Sunday called on the United Statesto recognise a Palestinian state, as rival Palestinian factions prepare to sign a reconciliation accord in Cairo.
Arabi urged visiting US Congressman Steve Chabot to "press Congress and the American administration to recognise a Palestinian state."

See it here;

Zechariah 12:2-3 

2 “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.

Again, I many of our leaders believe the Word of the Lord?

Ahmadinejad Goes Missing

It would appear that Iran's fiery leader has not showed up at his office or any of his official duties for some days now.  Could he be planning chaos?

The president has not been seen at his office for days, missing two cabinet meetings and cancelling a visit to the holy city of Qom.
Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, recently re-instated a cabinet minister he had pushed out.
Analysts believe an internal power struggle may be under way.

One unnamed reformist politician told the BBC that a "game of chicken" had begun.
"I hope one side yields at the end - otherwise it will move the country toward unprecedented instability that will certainly suck the current Arab uprisings into the country," the politician added.
Did you catch that last sentence about "unprecedented instability"?  As we all know, chaos is EXACTLY what Ahmadinejad wants....because he believes that global chaos will be the conditions necessary on planet earth to usher in the 13th Caliphate, ruled by the 12th Imam...who will promptly kill all Jews and Christians who refuse to bow to Islam.
