Is WWIII About to Start?

This is quite a headline!

Is World War Three about to start... by accident? Max Hastings asks whether rising tensions between China and Japan could boil over

Perhaps it is possible — and how nice it would be to believe this — that war between the greatest nations on earth has been abolished.

The cost and the threat of nuclear escalation is so horrendous that reason argues that nothing remotely resembling the 20th century's vast global clashes can ever happen again.

Assuredly, there can be no more Dunkirks or D-Days, because no Western nation — even the United States — can deploy a mass army.

If conflict does come, it will be waged with the high-tech weapons of our own time: warplanes manned and unmanned, missiles, cyber-attack weapons and the many instruments of destruction guided from space satellites.

But this would not make a great power conflict any less catastrophic.

And this is why a shiver will have run through the leaderships of Asia and of the Western powers this week when China's ambassador to London argued that Japan risks 'a serious threat to global peace' by 'rekindling' the bellicose attitude that hastened the expansion of World War II into a global conflict.


If you go on to read the entire article you will find a discussion on how Japan totally ignores its atrocious history during WWII.  It is common knowledge what they did to the Chinese during the RAPE OF NANKING....but yet their history books refuse to acknowledge what they did.

As we have said before, the history in this area is very old and very ripe with incredible violence.

Wars don't usually start with shooting...they start with comments and small actions.

China's recent move to set up air defense zones around some tiny islands was an action.  Now the words are going back and forth.

Will America really be willing to get involved in some conflict in the region?  We have always said we would....but talk is cheap.

Will China loan us the money for a war against them if we do?

Blood Moons...Coincidence or Hype?

A few weeks ago we did a post on the chatter that is coming up regarding the 4 Blood Moons that are supposed to happen in 2014-2015.  According to Pastor Hagee, who has a new book out on the topic, the coming blood moons have to be more than a coincidence.

You can see that discussion here;

Today an anonymous reader emailed me a message that he wanted to make us aware that he believes that we should "stay clear of Hagee" because of Hagee's previous comments from a few years back.  Those comments were regarding the Jews and Israel and that Hagee had come to believe that somehow they may have some other way to the Father that does NOT include Jesus Christ.

I remember that flap from 3-4 years ago and totally agreed at the time that if Hagee was saying that, it had to be a false teaching on his part.  "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father except through me," said Jesus.

Here is a link to get you started in looking into whether or not Hagee may by hyping his blood moons 'coincidence'...and according to this very thoughtful video, Hagee is giving a FALSE TEACHING on this topic.  Here;

As always, we need to be Bereans and test EVERYTHING that anyone says by going to the Word of God.  Does the Bible speak of blood moons....yes.  Has Hagee stretched the truth?...I don't know.  I haven't read his book.

Here is what I DO KNOW....Israel has had some incredible, supernatural events that have surrounded its rebirth.  They have also had some supernatural events that have enabled them to hold off enemy forces that far outnumbered them.  In the future, the Bible says that God Himself will supernaturally protect Israel and some of his remnant Jews from the ravages of The Great Tribulation.

Would it surprise me if there were some signs in the sky that pointed to something big coming for Israel?  No.

Does that mean we are supposed to EXPECT some big supernatural happening in the sky and that it WILL RESULT in some big event for Israel?  No.  As always, it will just be interesting to watch and see.

Now here is an even bigger question;  if a pastor makes a claim that you believe to be false, and you even have evidence in God's word that you know it to be false...does that mean that ANYTHING from that day on that comes from that pastor's mouth can't be true??  What if the pastor recognizes his error and repents for it?

If Pastor Hagee did say some false things regarding his beliefs about the Jews and Israel....does that mean that NOTHING can ever be trusted that comes out of Hagee's mouth again?

Does a pastor or Bible teacher have to be perfect in all his thoughts, words or deeds to be trusted?

I sure hope not....otherwise there would be no pastors or Bible teachers. 

I believe that it's possible that God uses differences of opinions within The Church to actually flesh out His purposes for our direction.  I believe that Paul and Barnabas got into once...and they were both Apostles!!  "They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company."  Acts 15:39

However, if we find a pastor that is continuously preaching "another gospel" one that says there are many ways to heaven, or one that says Jesus' body was never raised, or one that says Jesus never died for our sins, or was never born of a virgin, or was an Arab would be wise to do as Apostle Paul tells us and have "nothing to do" with those false teachers.


"Biggest Bubble in History"

I have heard this common refrain numerous times in the past 5 years when talking about China, "China has a billion people that are yearning for middle class things like toasters, blenders and they will continue to be a growth engine for decades to come...thereby supporting the global economy."


What if China is a massive financial mess?  What if their economy is actually made up of cooked books?  What if corruption and pollution are so great in China that the whole thing comes down like a house of cards??  What if they are forced to cash in the $1+trillion of US Treasury Debt when their check book goes south?  How would that affect USA and the rest of the global financial system?

China bans journalists from writing about its $24 trillion debt bubble the biggest in history

The Financial Times reports that China has banned journalists from writing pessimistic articles about its economy, the latest in a desperate effort to prevent the $24 trillion Chinese debt mountain from imploding as local interest rates skyrocket.

Blame the Fed for its reduction of QE money printing last week. The three-month Chinese Shibor interest rate is up 80 points to 5.5 per cent over the past month. This is a credit squeeze as hot money is pouring out of China.

Most vulnerable are China’s so-called ‘wealth management products’ that are highly leveraged to juice gains. Fitch Ratings says this ‘hidden second balance sheet’ totals around $2 trillion. Indeed the sums of money involved in the Chinese credit expansion are huge.

Credit has been expanding at 20-30 per cent per annum for the past five years since the global financial crisis. That’s way ahead of 7.5-8 per cent official GDP growth

Total credit has ballooned from $9 trillion to $24 trillion in five years, and is now equal in size to the US and Japanese banking systems added together, the biggest bubble in history. It is obvious to many observers that much of the GDP expansion of the past five years is simply monetary inflation and an illusion created under a cloud of acrid smog.

The problem with any debt bubble is that all seems perfectly well until the bubble suddenly goes pop. China is now coming closer and closer to that point. The rich have gotten as much as they can out of the country before this happens in a movement of money unlike anything since the Russian oligarchs in the late 1990s. London’s two top real estate owners are Chinese, for example.


Holy bubble!!  That thing could really go POP!  I wonder how big of mess that popping bubble could cause?

We know the current global financial system involves all 190 nations running their own financial systems.  The Bible says a day is coming when most of the world will be under a GLOBAL financial system that is all linked that requires a certain mark to buy or sell anything in it...and we know that the Antichrist will one day take over that system.

Could this news coming out of China be one more sign that the current system is about ready to implode?

If so, can the Antichrist be far away?

If so, could the rapture of the church be far away...which needs to PRECEDE the revealing of the Antichrist?

It would certainly seem that we are in the SEASON of the biggest event since Noah's flood.

"No man knows the day or the hour."

"But you brothers, are not in darkness that this day should surprise you like a thief."

North Korea Warns of "Nuclear Disaster"

The world is still very much on edge in numerous places.  Sadly I believe that most Americans are going to fall even further to sleep as the media continues to hype the rising stock market and 'improving economy'.  This is certainly more evidence of WHO the god of this country really is...

"You can't serve two can't serve God and Mammon." (god of wealth).

The Korean peninsula continues to be something to watch as that crazy, nut job, Kim Jong Un, kills his uncle, demands worship as a god and continues to blackmail the world with threats of nuclear activity.

North Korean leader warns of nuclear disaster, threatens US

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said the Korean peninsula will be engulfed by ''massive nuclear disaster'' if war breaks out there again, warning the US it will not be safe in the event of a conflict.

''If the war breaks out again in this land, it will bring about a massive nuclear disaster and the US will never be safe,'' Kim said in his New Year message, broadcast on state television.

''We are faced with a dangerous situation in which a small, accidental military clash can lead to an all-out war.''

Mr Kim added he would not beg for peace and vowed to protect the impoverished but nuclear-armed North with strong self-defence measures against enemies.

The young leader also hailed the recent execution of his powerful uncle as a ''resolute action'', labelling Jang Song-thaek ''scum''.

China continues to build up its military and give threats to Japan and South Korea and North Korea hates everyone but may be near a collapse as they are starved for cash and food.  China is very concerned of a North Korean collapse as they certainly don't want a bunch of illiterate peasants from North Korea spilling over into their borders and screwing up their nation.

The Bible talks about the Kings of the East, the Euphrates being dried up to allow a 200,000,000 man army one day marching toward Israel.  For these reasons we believe that 2014 will be a time to watch what happens between China, Japan, North and South Korea, Philippines, Taiwan and that whole general area.

Gold Tumbles as People Lose Faith

Remember all the TV and radio commercials over the past 4 years saying, "Buy gold!  With massive money printing it's ALWAYS been a safe harbor to protect your wealth!"

Well, for 2013 they sure were wrong!  If you had left your money in the bank earning NOTHING you would be way ahead of the folks who bought gold.

Gold Caps Biggest Annual Rout Since ’81 as Investors Lose Faith

Gold futures, which reached a six-month low today, posted the biggest annual slump in three decades as an improving economy cut demand for wealth protection. Silver touched the lowest since July.

Bullion futures for February delivery fell 0.1 percent to settle at $1,202.30 an ounce at 1:39 p.m. on the Comex in New York, after touching $1,181.40, the lowest since June 28. Prices fell 28 percent this year. Investors lost faith in the metal as a store of value as equities rallied and an economic recovery prompted the Federal Reserve to pare its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases. Silver dropped 36 percent in 2013 to $19.37 an ounce, the biggest annual drop since 1981.

Assets in exchange-traded products backed by gold fell 33 percent to the lowest since 2009 amid sales by billionaires George Soros and John Paulson. Disposals of 867.8 metric tons in 2013 were more than the combined inflows in the prior three years, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index of shares climbed 29 percent and is set for its best year since 1997, while the International Monetary Fund signaled this month the U.S. economy will expand more than forecast.

Physical demand, most notably from China, may help stem the potential for further losses, James Steel, an analyst at HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., wrote in a note yesterday. The drop below $1,200 this month boosted Chinese demand, he said.

Jeffrey Currie, Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s head of commodities research, said Oct. 8 that gold is a “slam dunk” sell for next year as an improving U.S. economy reduces the need for the metal as a store of value.  

There’s a “much stronger outlook” for U.S. growth in 2014, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in an interview broadcast Dec. 22 on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Growth may accelerate to 2.6 percent next year from 1.7 percent in 2013, according to economist estimates compiled by Bloomberg.


You see, as people were losing faith in Wall Street and the stock market for the past 4 years, they loaded up on gold...but as the Fed kept printing money they eventually succeeded in shoving the stock market higher and since inflation has been kept out of the started to tank.

So if you had put $10,000 dollars in your favorite S & P Index Fund on January 1, you would open your statement today and probably see that it is worth about $13,000...but if you had put your $10,000 in gold it would be worth about $6700 as of today.  That means your S & P investment is almost worth 100% MORE in one year!!!

OUCH!!  Glad I didn't listen to the GOLD GUYS schlepping gold on TV every 30 seconds!!

Remember, by the time people start schlepping stuff on's usually too late to invest.  The smart money was already in that sector long ago and now it's just all the Oprah watchers who are getting their advice from a TV that are going to hog pile in...and probably lose their money.

So for 2013 it seems the money magicians of the world's central banks are the heroes!!  They printing paper money at a rate faster than EVER and all the world seems to have fallen for that ruse....for now.

The Bible is VERY clear that your gold and silver will not save you from the wrath of God.  So as the signs increase that point to the nearness of the coming wrath, we can guess that at some point lots of godless folks are going to hog-pile into gold...probably when the entire paper money system collapses.

So now it's 2014.  It's always easy to look BACK at what happened last year...the real test is to look forward and ponder whether paper money, stocks, gold, banks, inflation, deflation, oil, corn, cattle, real estate or some other segment will be the next thing that goes up 30% this year....or collapses this year.

Proverbs tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  It then goes on to say, "Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold."  Proverbs 3:13-14


By the way, silver dropped 36% in we all would have done better in 2013 seeking The Lord than we would have done by investing in silver and gold.

Putin Wants Saudi Arabia "Destroyed"

Have you guys seen the suicide bombings that recently happened in Russia? 

Of course we don't even have to look them up to know that Muslims of some stripe are behind them....but which Muslims?  And why?  What has Russia done against Muhammad and Allah?  And what does Saudi Arabia have against Russia??

A grim memorandum circulating in the Kremlin today written by Federal Security Services (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov outlining the new security measures being put into place throughout Russia ordered by President Putin a few hours ago in response to the deadly Volgograd terror attacks further warns that Russia’s leader has, in effect, vowed to “destroy” Saudi Arabia as he personally is blaming them for this horrific crime against humanity.

Of the terror attacks themselves, Russian Deputy Emergency Situations Minister Vladimir Stepanov is reporting to the Kremlin that the two Volgograd explosions have hurt 104 people, of which 32 were killed.
Volgograd (formerly known as Stalingrad) is located 650 kilometers (400 miles) from Sochi which is the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics, and the twin explosions hit a crowed trolleybus and train station.
This FSB memo reports that the trolleybus suicide bomber has been identified as Pavel Pechyonkin [photo 2nd left], born in the Mari El region and who joined resistance forces in 2012.
According to this FSB information, Pechyonkin, aged 32, is a former paramedic. In 2012, he joined the bandit underground, having left a note for his mother on his lap topcomputer. Pechyonkin has since communicated with his parents two or three times via the Internet.
Of particular concern about Pechyonkin for Putin, this memo continues, was this suicide bombers location this past year which the FSB confirms was in Islamic rebel held territories of Syria controlled and funded by Saudi Arabia.
Critical to note, and as we had reported on in our 27 August report Putin Orders Massive Strike Against Saudi Arabia If West Attacks Syria, Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, this past August, secretly offered Russia a sweeping deal to control the global oil market and safeguard Russia’s gas contracts, if the Kremlin backs away from the Assad regime in Syria.
When Putin refused Prince Bander’s “offer,” however, and as reported by London’s Telegraph News Service, this Saudi Prince stated to Putin, “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”
Holy kingdom against kingdom!!!  If this is all true this is quite a story and CERTAINLY adds to the intrigue as these Last Days play out.
Please keep in mind that Ezekiel 38 says a coalition made up of Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya-Tunisia, Ethiopia-Somalia-Sudan will one day gather to destroy Israel...and Saudi Arabia HATES Iran.  In fact they may have already bought nuclear weapons from Pakistan as they continue to build their strength against a nuclear Iran.
So isn't it interesting that Iran hates Saudi Arabia and now Russia hates Saudi Arabia too??  Hmmm....I wonder how Turkey feels about Saudi Arabia?
Can you imagine the turmoil that will take place if a major Muslim attack were to happen during the Olympics next month held in Russia?
Can you imagine the embarrassment and anger and need for revenge that such an attack could breed in Czar Putin??  Could Putin one day fill the shoes of Gog of Magog mentioned in Ezekiel 38?
This is all very interesting.  The world is certainly on edge already and many are wondering what types of triggers would need to be pulled to get the world to fall off the edge....I wonder if another trigger just came further into focus??

Could Pope be "Modern Day Jesus"?

This new Pope is troubling in a variety of ways.  The number one way is how the "world" seems to be embracing him.  Even some atheists I know think he's pretty cool...and Time Magazine held him up as the Person of the Year!

Jesus said that we should expect the world to hate us, because it hated Him first. 

So what's up with this Pope?  Many are wondering if he COULD be part of the Last Days coalition that will usher in the one-world-religion where everyone will be forced to bow to Satan.

Could Pope Francis be a modern-day Jesus? Francis delivered the traditional “Urbi et Orbi” speech, which in Latin is interpreted as “to the city and to the world,” offering a message of hope and love for a better world. His Christmas wish included a prayer for Christians under attack, trafficked children, battered women, peace in Africa and the Middle East and more.

The pope’s speech was delivered from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica. Francis spoke a message of love, hope and peace to a cheering crowd of at least 70,000 Romans, pilgrims and tourists. In this speech, which was the pope’s first Christmas message since being elected pontiff, he said he was joining all who are hoping for a better world and cares for others.

The 77-year-old pope is seeking to connect the world in a place of peace and non-violence. Jesus also preached a message of hope to a dying world but it often seems that Christians would rather focus on areas of division instead of celebrating the things which push for unity. People who are mature and secure often conclude it’s better to agree to disagree rather than fall out.

The pope has often been criticized for his message of inclusion which seeks to offer love instead of judgment and peace instead of a sword. Jesus suffered much of the same persecution; he sought to unify as oppose to the harsh division that existed before his arrival.

The Argentine pope solicited a moment of silent prayer for Christians who are subjected to any type of violence and have been accused unjustly. Francis said that Christians are being persecuted, not only in countries that don’t allow full religious freedom, but also in places where religious freedom and human rights are “supposedly” protected.

Even though the pope didn’t go into details outlining the countries he referenced it has become common knowledge that the Vatican has made multiple attempts to persuade Saudi Arabia, one of Islam’s holiest places, to release the ban that forbids Christians to worship in public.

This year alone there have been multiple incidents of attacks and intolerance against minority Christians in places such as Nigeria, Indonesia, Egypt, Iraq and Sudan; along with other countries where the law guarantees their rights of religious freedom.

Pope Francis, in the spirit of Jesus Christ, said in a world that is civilized, injustice must be eliminated and denounced. He prayed that this Christmas season would allow an experience of faith and love that shines worldwide.


Did you catch this?!?! 

"The pope has often been criticized for his message of inclusion which seeks to offer love instead of judgment and peace instead of a sword."

I'm just gonna take a wild guess here and say that LIBERTY VOICE (Boldly Inclusive) has NO IDEA that they just contradicted a verse spoken by Jesus!!  "I didn't come to bring peace, but a sword."

So yes, the Pope should be criticized if he starts to contradict the words of Jesus and the words of the Bible.

The fact that LIBERTY VOICE chose to use those words of "peace instead of a sword" is so strange that I am going to file this one in the "You can't make that up!" file.

"Global Warming" Is Making the Earth Cold

It's always been true, but seems even more so today....if you DON'T have a biblical worldview you will succumb to foolishness.  This is a fulfillment of the prophesies in Isaiah about the wise being made foolish and the intelligent being frustrated.

A friend in CA caught this little blurb in his local paper.

New research finds that while the rate of surface warming of the planet due to climate change has slowed since 1998, the effects of warming are still advancing at a rapid pace.

Climate researchers from the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research say it is a myth that global warming has paused, owing to solid evidence that the world’s oceans are now absorbing more than 90 percent of the excess heating of the planet.
Researcher Kevin Trenberth estimates that the oceans are accumulating heat equivalent to about 6 Hiroshima atomic bomb detonations per second on average.

Warming of the planet due to greenhouse emissions is still melting glaciers and ice caps, lifting ocean levels and creating some of the hottest periods on record around the planet.
Writing in the American Geophysical Union open-access journal Earth’s Future, Trenberth and colleague John Fasullo say that “global warming has not stopped; it is merely manifested in different ways.”

Greenhouse gas emissions continue to surge from polluting industry and transportation, setting the stage for even more intense warming in the decades ahead, researchers warn.


So, to recap....even though we have just suffered through one of the coldest Decembers EVER and ice is building on the South Pole at the fastest rate EVER and the earth hasn't warmed since 1998...we are still supposed to be terrified by global warming.

"Ignore the freezing is simply more evidence of global warming!"

Wow...that is foolish and frustrating.

Of course many believe that the push behind this global warming fervor is an attempt to draw the world ever closer into forming a one-world-government...and it may start with a 'global-climate-board' who will be tasked on making laws that all of the nations of the world will be forced to follow.

War of the Worlds?

Many of my readers will know that I believe strongly that there is some sort of demonic connection with the HUGE increase in UFO sightings and the Last Days.  I believe Satan is planning a deception so large that it will blow people out of the water...even the "elect"...if that were possible.

Of course I am not the only one who sees things this way.  There are many prophecy watchers who are seeing the exact same things and have done a far better job that me of connecting the dots.

I ran across this article on Rapture Ready from a contributor to their site and wanted to share it with you as confirmation that others are seeing this 'alien agenda' ramping up.

But moving on to the focus of this message, what is the one ingredient that would immediately unite the world into the goal of a one world government and a one world religion? It’s a possible scenario even beyond our economic woes and the devaluation of the dollar, or calls for unity of all nations, as there are so many differences in each sovereign nation.

What if a world population believed that their very survival was at stake, or that the world, as we know it, was about to abruptly end with violence and untold suffering? What would convince an undiscerning population to follow one man, one government, one religion -- to give them a sense of calm and reinforce their continued sinful lifestyle?
As far back as 1987 after a meeting with Russian President Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan spoke of the one thing that would unite the world as one and put all our petty differences aside. President Reagan said, speaking of himself and Gorbachev:
“How easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries.”
Suppose that the population of the world truly believed and were falsely led to believe that an “invasion from another world” had taken place and that this world, this planet was in danger of annihilation? I believe that is the one thing that would instantly unite this world of sinful men to stand against outside forces from invading our world. With the coming environmental attacks against this planet that have already started picks up speed, many will believe anything.
If you are middle aged, you can recall back in the 70s, a little movie called “E.T.” Cute little movie with a cute little being from outer space that only wanted to “phone home.” Since that movie the interest in things beyond our world has escalated into greater and greater interest in all things extraterrestrial. The movie industry has exploded with plots that speak of friendly or not so friendly visitors from another planet.
Movies such as “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1976), “Critters”(1986), “Signs” (2002), the Predator film series, (starting in 1987), “War of the Worlds” (2005), “Independence Day” (1996), and “Fallen Angels” (2007), to name just a few -- that Hollywood has made to cash in on the tremendous preoccupation with all things “outer space.” I believe the world has been following the lead of the prince of lies to set up just such a scenario that may be coming in the near future as a lie to the people of earth.
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
“Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.)
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:6-11, 15-17).
