The Specter of a World War

While Americans are all caught up in the latest Donald Trump statement or Hillary's latest lie....very serious movements are happening which could explode into WWIII on any given day.

Turkey and Saudi Arabia are massing massive amounts of troops on the Syrian border.  Putin has threatened to use tactical nukes to stop Turkey from any plans it has on invading Syria.  That would sure be a game changer....

Are Saudi Arabia and Turkey planning to invade Syria?

This is the single most important question of today. It is much more important than the machinations of the upcoming presidential elections in America, more important than the turmoil embracing the European Union as a result of mass migration, more important even than the impending worldwide economic collapse.

Right now, whether Saudi Arabia and Turkey are planning a joint invasion of Syria is the single most important question of our time.

The reason for this is that if Saudi Arabia and Turkey do decide to invade Syria, Vladimir Putin has let it be known that he would use tactical nuclear weapons against Turkey to stop them. Vladimir Putin does not make this kind of threat idly.

A steadily building antagonism between Russian and Turkey in Syria has existed for a number of months. It is not an exaggeration to say that a proxy war between Turkey and Russia is already well underway.

Almost two weeks ago the Syrian military air base of Minagh, some six kilometers from the Turkish border was seized by Kurdish forces heavily backed by Russian air power. There they attempted to dig in, until Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan launched a two hour artillery bombardment of the base from within Turkey. This Turkish bombardment was an indirect attack on Russian forces and is an example of the deadly tit-for-tat being played out between these two powers.

Vladimir Putin is waiting for the right opportunity to settle accounts with Turkey for the shooting down of a Russian fighter plane on November 24th. The question is whether Putin will feel the need to react and strike back now or wait until later. In this context the Turkish artillery bombardment was a highly calculated risk from the Turkish president.

Russian-Turkish relations are extremely volatile, they rest on a knife edge.

Then comes news that has rocked the Middle East to its core. Turkey and Saudi Arabia seem to be massing huge numbers of troops on their respective borders to Syria. Saudi Arabia and Turkey have both dismissed any talk of an invasion with the explanation of it being merely an internal military exercise. If this is so, it would be the largest military exercise in the history of the Middle East.

At the same time the Saudi’s are warning that Bashir al-Assad will “be removed by force,” if necessary. Turkey is also suddenly claiming that it may be necessary for them to establish a “safe zone” in northern Syria, strictly for “humanitarian reasons.” All the while their troops are building up on their respective borders in huge numbers.

Saudi Arabia and Turkey have both invested significant amounts of money backing Sunni groups in the Syrian civil war. These same groups now stand on the edge of total defeat. Despite this fact, Saudi Arabia remains just as resolute that Assad will be removed from power.

The Saudi Foreign Minister, Jubeir, even went so far as to say that if necessary Saudi forces will cooperate in a ground invasion to “hold ground…that one cannot…from the air.”

If this comes to pass, and Saudi Arabia do invade Syria alongside Turkey, with a view to proactively removing Assad from power in Damascus, then Saudi Arabia and Turkey will be fighting directly against elements of the Syrian army who would still defend Assad. These elements of the Syrian army would be backed and bolstered by Hezbollah, who are backed by Iran, who are in turn backed by Russia.

Effectively the Syrian civil war could morph from an internal conflict between transnational actors into an international hot war between nation states. Iran and Russia would be on one side and Turkey and Saudi Arabia on the other.

The huge danger at this point is that any outright clash between Turkey and Russia would allow Turkey to invoke the NATO charter, demanding allied protection against Russian “aggression,” thereby sucking America, Britain, France and all NATO members directly into a confrontation with Russia.

This, by definition, would be another world war. At the very least it would be the most dangerous point of international diplomacy since the Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1960s.

Tensions between Russia and the West are already heightened. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev last week claimed that Russia and the West are in the grips of “…a new cold war.” Outspoken Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, has gone even further claiming that a third world war is actually already underway, “…I call this struggle a third world war by other means.”

Syria stands on the brink. Nation states are greedily snatching up land for themselves and the competing interests that are driving them are increasingly drawing nations into open, outright conflict. As this is read today, the air forces of twelve separate nations are in combat over the skies of this one single country.

The world is sleep walking into a new world war. While people are watching the outcomes of presidential debates, primaries and caucuses, chaos in Europe and just trying to cope with the day to day issues of everyday life, anarchy is breaking loose in Syria, anarchy that may engulf the entire region, or beyond.

The Syrian landscape is moving and shifting rapidly. Syria may provide the spark for a lager conflagration that is yet to come, one that has the potential to drag all nations down into the abyss.


Yes...that would be quite an abyss to be dragged into....especially because we already have $19 trillion debt and a commander in chief who has no idea what he is doing.

We saw another news report today that showed total destruction in a suburb of Damascus.  As we watched the report we were reminded again of Isaiah 17 which is a LAST DAYS prophecy...

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city
    but will become a heap of ruins.

Remember friends, NONE of this surprises our God.  He sits on his throne and laughs at the folly of men.  One day He will come from heaven and set all the godless wicked men on their ears.  That's a promise!

Masters of Deceit

We all know that Satan is the prince of this world.  We also know that he is the prince of the powers of the air.  Evidence of his evil is all around us.  Greed, child porn, beheading, Jew-hatred, perversion, demon-worship, etc....

So how come most of us Americans have experienced a pretty decent life?

Did you ever stop to think that MAYBE the reason that planet earth is as civil as it is in the VERY LAST DAYS is because America is the restraining force that holds back Satan's plan of a global government based on communism?

Prophecy guru, Jan Markell, had a guest on her radio show last Saturday.  Listen to him if you can by going to or get the free app, OnePlace and listen to her on your SmartPhone.

Now check out the trailer for the movie that her guest made called AGENDA 2:  MASTERS OF DECEIT


Here is some of what Jan Markell had to say in her email today.  It sure seems as if the world is getting ready to receive her Antichrist.

Thank you Jesus that you will slay him with one word from your mouth when you return to rule and reign just 7 years after Antichrist is revealed!  What a day that will be!

There is an agenda going on. Since the beginning of time there has been a conflict between good and evil. But now the agenda is so precarious that a new film says America is at the most vulnerable time since the Revolutionary War. When there is vulnerability, people become afraid, and then they ask government to do more.


1)  Children must be made into useful idiots through public education. They must have the collectivist mindset. And with Bill Ayers & Co writing curriculum, they stand no chance. Children are being held captive.

2)  Create dependency! Dictatorship always follows dependency.  That's the goal of dependency. 

3)  Socialize medicine.  But it is not about healthcare, it is about tyranny.  Ration care--particularly withhold from those who don't follow the party line.

4)  Infiltrate the political parties. The Left has now been taken over, although your average Democrat still thinks they are voting for Harry Truman or JFK.  

5)  Make people long for Socialism, but Socialism never works--only Marxism works as it will be enforced with the barrel of a gun.

6)  Emphasize that taxing the rich is good for a country and that it will stimulate the economy. It never does.

7)  Invade the seminaries and divinity schools. Corrupt them with the Leftist agenda. Get them to focus on "social justice" and saving the planet. Get the focus off of saving souls.

8)  Invade the World and National Council of Churches and subvert evangelicalism.  Get them all to worship the gospel of environmentalism.  

9)  Honor Gorbachev's "Green Cross" even though he destroyed the environment in the Soviet Union. He will save America's environment, nonetheless. Gorbachev is really all about big government, a bigger U.N. and much less freedom.

10.) Pretend there is always a crisis and then never let a good crisis go to waste. But there may not really be a crisis.

11.)  Exalt the United Nations and its off-shoots like "Agenda 21."

12.) Come up with an "Earth Charter" and an "Ark of Hope" that resembles the Ark of the Covenant. Place gifts in this and treat it as sacred.

13.)  Make sure the "village" (government) raises the children and in the process, destroy the family and all views of traditional marriage.  Promote obscenity and immorality.

14.) Promote change and a new society.

Esau and Ishmael Unite Against Israel

An article in Israel News is suggesting that ancient Bible prophecies are being fulfilled as they watch the descendants of Esau and Ishmael unite against them.

“For, lo, Thine enemies are in an uproar; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They hold crafty converse against Thy people, and take counsel against Thy treasured ones. They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’ For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites.” 
Psalms 83:4-7 (The Israel Bible™)

We are living in a time when the fulfillment of ancient Jewish prophecy, uniting Arabs and the West against Israel, is headline news.

Signs that Western Europe is cooperating with Arab demands for a state in the midst of Israel are becoming commonplace.

When the UN General Assembly voted in 2012 on whether to recognize the non-existent State of Palestine, 138 countries voted in favor, including the Western European countries of Austria, France, Italy and Spain.

A year ago this month, the first Palestinian Embassy in Western Europe officially opened its doors in Stockholm, Sweden.

Last week, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius announced France’s intention to officially recognize a Palestinian state if negotiations between Israel and the PA fail. Couched as an attempt to force Israel to return to negotiations with Abbas, in fact, it gives Abbas every reason to avoid negotiations.

Last week as well, the Pope met with the President of Iran. Iran is widely recognized as the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. Yet the Vatican released a statement, after the Pope’s meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, claiming that Pope Francis and Rouhani share “common spiritual values”.

For Bible believers, these and similar news items that reflect increasing cooperation between the Arab world and the West should be viewed as fulfillment of ancient Jewish prophecy. Jewish tradition contains a 2,000 year-old prophecy that the children of Esau (today’s Western nations) and the children of Ishmael (today’s Arab nations) will unite against the Jewish people at the End of Days.


Here is just one more example of people all over the world talking about apocalyptic topics.  The Jews are starting to believe they are in the End of Days, ISIS and their Sunni Muslim supporters believe they are in the End of Days, the Shi'ite rulers of Iran believe they are in the End of Days, and many Bible believing Christians (such as myself) believe we are in the End of Days.

Of course the scoffers are everywhere, exactly as Peter said they would be..."Oh Dennis, people have been saying that stuff for the last 2000 years...and still the world keeps going on the same as it always has....and always will!"

Really??  You have to be kidding me!  The world IS NOT THE SAME as it has always been!  For the past 6000 years the fastest mode of transportation was the horse....and then in a short 60 years we went from the Wright Brothers flying a glider 120 feet to putting a man on the moon!!  We went from the printing press to people holding the earth's libraries all in the palm of their hand on their Smart Phones in just a few hundred years!!  We went from people spending the entire lives within 50 miles of their birthplace to people flying from Los Angeles to New York in a few hours!!

Friends...think about it!!

And if that isn't enough to get your excited that WE MAY BE THE FINAL GENERATION that Daniel, Joel, Jesus, Peter and John prophesied....Israel was miraculously returned to the Promised Land after 2000 years of being scattered all over the earth.

When you see ALL THESE THINGS beginning to happen, lift up your heads because your redemption is near.

People today are buying, selling, planting, marrying, eating, drinking and pretty much carrying on as if they have all the time in the world and believing that NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE.  Sounds exactly as it was in the Days of Noah.

There Will Be Famine

I'm reading a book by a prophecy guru named Britt Gillette, “Signs Of The Second Coming: 11 Reasons Jesus Will Return in Our Lifetime.”

As we all know, Jesus said that one sign of his 2nd coming would be famines.

Britt laid out some interesting facts regarding the millions that have died from famine in the last hundred years...61 million in the last 40 years!

As the population of the world has grown, famines have caused more and more death and destruction in their wake. In fact, while the Roman Empire's entire population at the time of Jesus is estimated to have been approximately 55 million people, the first half of the 20th Century alone witnessed these famines*:

The 1921 famine in Russia
(over 5 million dead)

The 1928-1929 famine in China
(over 3 million dead)

The 1932-1933 famine in Ukraine
(over 7 million dead)

The 1932-1933 famine in Kazakhstan
(over 1 million dead)

The 1936 famine in China
(over 5 million dead)

The 1942-1943 famine in China
(over 1 million dead)

The 1943 famine in Bengal, India
(over 2 million dead)

The 1946-1947 famine in the Soviet Union
(over 1 million dead)

The 1959-1961 famine in China
(over 36 million dead)

*These are approximate statistics. Numbers may vary slightly based on the referenced source.

That's more than 61 million people who perished from famine in just 40 years!”

"Boy Play" in Afghanistan

Hopefully, many of you have heard about this story and may have already written your Congressman.

In Afghanistan it is part of their culture to dress up little boys as women and then have the men screw them.

Just one other example of the filth, rot and perversion that is evident in many Muslim lands.

When a U.S. Army soldier intervened to stop the rape of a little boy by an Afghan officer he got in trouble with the army for interrupting their "culture".

Of course the liberals of America have many folks scared to say ANYTHING disparaging about Islam and/or Muslims lest we be accuse of being "Islamophobic."

KABUL, Afghanistan — In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base.

“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”

Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play,” and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.

The policy has endured as American forces have recruited and organized Afghan militias to help hold territory against the Taliban. But soldiers and Marines have been increasingly troubled that instead of weeding out pedophiles, the American military was arming them in some cases and placing them as the commanders of villages — and doing little when they began abusing children.

“The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,” said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. “But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.”

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.


Many of you may get the ACLJ Updates as I do.  If not, here is the one that came today and maybe you would consider at least signing their petition.


It's called "bacha bazi" - translated "boy play." It's clearly evil. 

Older men force young boys to wear dresses and then rape them, often multiple times per day. 

This sexual torture leads to a lifetime of physical, mental, and psychological injury. 

What is the U.S. Military reportedly telling our troops to do about this evil? 

Nothing at all. 

We give more foreign aid to Afghanistan than any other nation on Earth. 

America must ALWAYS stand up for what is right. 

We're fighting back, aggressively advocating on Capitol Hill, demanding the Obama Administration address these atrocities. We're submitting critical legal documents and testimony at the United Nations to end the abuse. 

These young boys are being silenced. The evil is being shoved into the shadows. 

Shine a light into the darkness. Be heard for these young boys today. 

Sign Our NEW Petition: Protect Afghan Kids from Sexual Abuse.

World is Unraveling, Jesus is Coming

Jan Markell and many others have repeated a great saying, "The world is falling apart, everything is falling into place."

I have mentioned to many people in conversation that if the Bible said, "There will be no wars, no earthquakes, no violence, no famines and the world will have abundance and harmony and then Jesus will return".....I would be very concerned as I surveyed the daily news.

But instead, I am encouraged!

It would seem Franklin Graham is too.

Franklin Graham: 'World Is Unraveling From Middle East to North Korea, Jesus Is Coming'

Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham has said that international news headlines indicate the world is unraveling, and urged people to trust Jesus Christ, who is going to one day "wipe the slate clean."

"While the United States is focused on its own politics, the world is unraveling. The danger signals are everywhere. Beheadings, rapes, murders, bombings are taking place every day across North Africa through the Middle East, all the way to the borders of India," Graham wrote Thursday on his Facebook page.

"The U.S. military is deploying fighter aircraft to Finland to counter Russia's moves in that region; China is deploying missiles on an artificial island they have built in the south China sea over the objections of the international community; and North Korea has successfully test fired a long-range missile that has the potential of eventually reaching America with a nuclear bomb," he noted of some of the international news developments in recent times.

The son of famous evangelist Billy Graham, who heads Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse, said that all of the global political and economic instability shows that the only hope for the world is "Almighty God."

"One day He is going to wipe the slate clean and 'create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind,' (Isaiah 65:17). For those who have trusted His Son Jesus Christ by faith, there is an eternal future with Him to look forward to," he continued.

Graham has been outspoken about world issues, such as the ongoing persecution and genocide of Christians in the Middle East at the hands of the Islamic State terror group, and has urged President Obama to recognize the severity of the issue.


Thank you Jesus for some strong, outspoken men like Billy and Franklin.  Men who aren't afraid to say politically incorrect and unpopular things.

Yes, Jesus is coming!  We certainly don't know the day or the hour but we can certainly see all the signs lining up that point to the nearness of the Great Tribulation and the return of Christ at we said in our previous post, this means the rapture is AT LEAST 7+ years before the 2nd coming.

Bring On The Cashless Future

Jesus clearly told us that there would be NO SIGNS that would preface the rapture.  But he told us there would be plenty of signs that would preface His 2nd Coming.

All these earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars, lawlessness, perversion, lover's of violence, worshiping false gods, Israel back in the promised land....these are just SOME of the signs that Jesus told us to watch for so that we would know the 2nd Coming is close.

We are sorry for all the posts we have done recently on the coming cashless society, but we just can't ignore all the headlines that keep coming up from so many diverse places.

This next one is from pretty darn mainstream!  And even they are telling their readers that a cashless society is in our future.

Cash had a pretty good run for 4,000 years or so. These days, though, notes and coins increasingly seem declasse: They're dirty and dangerous, unwieldy and expensive, antiquated and so very analog.

Sensing this dissatisfaction, entrepreneurs have introduced hundreds of digital currencies in the past few years, of which bitcoin is only the most famous. Now governments want in: The People's Bank of China says it intends to issue a digital currency of its own. Central banks in Ecuador, the Philippines, the U.K. and Canada are mulling similar ideas. At least one company has sprung up to help them along.

Much depends on the details, of course. But this is a welcome trend. In theory, digital legal tender could combine the inventiveness of private virtual currencies with the stability of a government mint.

Most obviously, such a system would make moving money easier. Properly designed, a digital fiat currency could move seamlessly across otherwise incompatible payment networks, making transactions faster and cheaper. It would be of particular use to the poor, who could pay bills or accept payments online without need of a bank account, or make remittances without getting gouged.

For governments and their taxpayers, potential advantages abound. Issuing digital currency would be cheaper than printing bills and minting coins. It could improve statistical indicators, such as inflation and gross domestic product. Traceable transactions could help inhibit terrorist financing, money laundering, fraud, tax evasion and corruption.

The most far-reaching effect might be on monetary policy. For much of the past decade, central banks in the rich world have been hampered by what economists call the zero lower bound, or the inability to impose significantly negative interest rates. Persistent low demand and high unemployment may sometimes require interest rates to be pushed below zero -- but why keep money in a deposit whose value keeps shrinking when you can hold cash instead? With rates near zero, that conundrum has led policy makers to novel and unpredictable methods of stimulating the economy, such as large-scale bond-buying.

A digital legal tender could resolve this problem. Suppose the central bank charged the banks that deal with it a fee for accepting paper currency. In that way, it could set an exchange rate between electronic and paper money -- and by raising the fee, it would cause paper money to depreciate against the electronic standard. This would eliminate the incentive to hold cash rather than digital money, allowing the central bank to push the interest rate below zero and thereby boost consumption and investment. It would be a big step toward doing without cash altogether.

Digital legal tender isn't without risk. A policy that drives down the value of paper money would meet political resistance and -- to put it mildly -- would require some explaining. It could hold back private innovation in digital currencies. Security will be an abiding concern. Non-cash payments also tend to exacerbate the human propensity to overspend. And you don't have to be paranoid to worry about Big Brother tracking your financial life.

Governments must be alert to these problems -- because the key to getting people to adopt such a system is trust. A rule that a person's transaction history could be accessed only with a court order, for instance, might alleviate privacy concerns. Harmonizing international regulations could encourage companies to keep experimenting. And an effective campaign to explain the new tender would be indispensable.

If policy makers are wise and attend to all that, they just might convince the public of a surprising truth about cash: They're better off without it.


Ummmm....ya think??  Policy makers might convince the public??

The Bible says that one day the world WILL HAVE AN ELECTRONIC CURRENCY SYSTEM in place so that anyone who wants to use it will need to have a mark on their body to access the system.

Of course the BLESSED HOPE of followers of Christ is that we won't be here to witness this event.


Because we will be gone before the Antichrist is revealed...and the Antichrist is the man who orders that humans take the mark.

"When you see all these things beginning to happen, look up!  Because your redemption is near!"

Please remember friends that WE ARE THE VERY FIRST GENERATION since Christ ascended that have the technology available for this 2000 year old prophecy to be fulfilled.

Exciting times!!!
