DISCOURAGEMENT AND SUCCESS IN THE MISSIONARY FIELDS

August 26, 2014

Back in 1921, a missionary couple named David and Svea Flood went with their two-year-old son from Sweden to the heart of Africa-to what was then called the Belgian Congo. They met up with another young Scandinavian couple, the Erickson’s, and the four of them sought God for direction. In those days of much tenderness and devotion and sacrifice, they felt led by the Lord to set out from the main mission station and take the gospel to a remote area.

This was a huge step of faith. At the village of N’dolera near Lemera, they were rebuffed by the chief, who would not let them enter his town for fear of alienating the local gods. The two couples opted to go half a mile up the slope and build their own mud huts.

 
They prayed for a spiritual breakthrough, but there was none. The only contact with the villagers was a young boy, who was allowed to sell them chickens and eggs twice a week. Svea Flood-a tiny woman only four feet, eight inches tall-decided that if this was the only African she could talk to, she would try to lead the boy to Jesus. And in fact, she succeeded. But there were no other encouragements. Meanwhile, malaria continued to strike one member of the little band after another. In time the Erickson’s decided they had had enough suffering and left to return to the central mission station. David and Svea Flood remained near N’dolera to go on alone. Then, of all things, Svea found herself pregnant in the middle of the primitive wilderness. When the time came for her to give birth, the village chief softened enough to allow a midwife to help her. A little girl was born, whom they named Aina. The delivery, however, was exhausting, and Svea Flood was already weak from bouts of malaria. The birth process was a heavy blow to her stamina. She lasted only another seventeen days.

Inside David Flood, something snapped in that moment. He dug a crude grave, buried his twenty-seven-year-old wife, and then took his children back down the mountain to the mission station. Giving his newborn daughter to the Erickson’s, he snarled, “I’m going back to Sweden. I’ve lost my wife, and I obviously can’t take care of this baby. God has ruined my life.” With that, he headed for the port, rejecting not only his calling, but God himself. Within eight months both the Erickson’s were stricken with a mysterious malady and died within days of each other. The baby was then turned over to some American missionaries, who adjusted her Swedish name to “Aggie” and eventually brought her back to the United States at age three.

This family loved the little girl and was afraid that if they tried to return to Africa, some legal obstacle might separate her from them. So they decided to stay in their home country and switch from missionary work to pastoral ministry. And that is how Aggie grew up in South Dakota. As a young woman, she attended North Central Bible College in Minneapolis. There she met and married a young man named Dewey Hurst.

Years passed. The Hurst’s enjoyed a fruitful Ministry. Aggie gave birth first to a daughter, then a son. In time her husband became president of a Christian college in the Seattle area, and Aggie was intrigued to find so much Scandinavian heritage there. One day a Swedish religious magazine appeared in her mailbox. She had no idea who had sent it, and of course she couldn’t read the words. But as she turned the pages, all of a sudden a photo stopped her cold. There in a primitive setting was a grave with a white cross-and on the cross were the words SVEA FLOOD. Aggie jumped in her car and went straight for a college faculty member who, she knew, could translate the article. “What does this say?” she demanded. The instructor summarized the story: It was about missionaries who had come to N’dolera long ago … the birth of a white baby … the death of the young mother … the one little African boy who had been led to Christ … and how, after the whites had all left, the boy had grown up and finally persuaded the chief to let him build a school in the village. The article said that gradually he won all his students to Christ… the children led their parents to Christ… even the chief had become a Christian. Today there were six hundred Christian believers in that one village…. All because of the sacrifice of David and Svea Flood. For the Hursts’ twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, the college presented them with the gift of a vacation to Sweden.

There Aggie sought to find her real father. An old man now, David Flood had remarried, fathered four more children, and generally dissipated his life with alcohol. He had recently suffered a stroke. Still bitter, he had one rule in his family: “Never mention the name of God- because God took everything from me. After an emotional reunion with her half brothers and half sister, Aggie brought up the subject of seeing her father. The others hesitated. “You can talk to him,” they replied, “even though he’s very ill now. But you need to know that whenever he hears the name of God, he flies into a rage. Aggie was not to be deterred. She walked into the squalid apartment, with liquor bottles everywhere, and approached the seventy-three-year-old man lying in a rumpled bed. “Papa~” she said tentatively. He turned and began to cry. “Aina,” he said. “I never meant to give you away.” “It’s all right, Papa,” she replied, taking him gently in her arms. “God took care of me.” The man instantly stiffened. The tears stopped. “God forgot all of us. Our lives have been like this because of Him.” He turned his face back to the wall. Aggie stroked his face and then continued,

undaunted. “Papa, I’ve got a little story to tell you, and it’s a true one. You didn’t go to Africa in vain. Mama didn’t die in vain. The little boy you won to the Lord grew up to win that whole village to Jesus Christ. The one seed you planted just kept growing and growing. Today there are six hundred African people serving the Lord because you were faithful to the call of God in your life. … Papa, Jesus loves you. He has never hated you.” The old man turned back to look into his daughter’s eyes. His body relaxed. He began to talk. And by the end of the afternoon, he had come back to the God he had resented for so many decades. Over the next few days, father and daughter enjoyed warm moments together. Aggie and her husband soon had to return to America-and within a few weeks, David Flood had gone into eternity.

A few years later, the Hurst’s were attending a high-level evangelism conference in London, England, when a report was given from the former Belgian Congo now named Zaire. The superintendent of the national church, Ruhigita Ndagora, representing some 110,000 baptized believers, spoke eloquently of the gospel’s spread in his nation. Aggie could not help going to ask Pastor Ndagora afterward if he had ever heard of David and Svea Flood. “Yes, madam,” the man replied in French, his words then being translated into English. “It was Svea Flood who led me to Jesus Christ. I was the boy who brought food to your parents before you were born. In fact, to this day your mother’s grave and her memory are honored by all of us.” He embraced her in a long, sobbing hug. Then he continued, “You must come to Africa to see, because your mother is the most famous person in our history.”

Pastor Ndagora had made a huge difference in the Congo. After rising to the important post as Legal Representative of the 8th CEPZA (Pentecostal Community of Zaire), eventually he was instrumental in the establishment of a hospital in Lemera officially named the Hospital Lemera. The Administrator of the hospital was Miss Ingegerd Rooth who first worked as a nurse and then returned to Sweden to finish her medical training and finally returned to work as physician in charge of the hospital. She was highly respected and loved by all who passed near her. She really had a lot of friends at the hospital and in the entire community. The first black physicians among many others include Runyambo, Musafiri and Ndombe.

The Swedish Free Mission signed a contract with the Congolese government to ensure that each clinic would be responsible for Swedish Nursing Training.

At the request of Reverend Ruhigita Ndagora, the Swedish International Agency Development granted the money to build more rooms and a hydro electric dam. This dam provided electricity and water for Lemera Hospital and residents of Lemera.

In time, Aggie Hurst and her husband traveled to Lemera and were welcomed by cheering throngs of villagers. She even met the man who had been hired by her father many years before to carry her back down the mountain in a hammock-cradle. The most dramatic moment, of course, was when Reverend Pastor Ruhigita Ndagora escorted Aggie to see her mother’s white cross for herself. She knelt in the soil to pray and give thanks. Later that day, in the church, the pastor read from John 12:24: “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” He then followed with Psalm 126:5: “Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.”

WHERE SOLOMON’S TEMPLE WAS NOT

August 19, 2014

Below is the Temple Mount as viewed from the Mount of Olives, note the graves in the foreground. 

 

IsraelfromOlives

Abraham was directed by God to take his son Isaac, to the land of Moriah, and there to offer him for a burnt offering upon a mountain which God would show him. This land is mentioned only here, and there is little to guide us in trying to identify it. Much later the name of Moriah is affixed to the mount on which Solomon’s Temple was built, possibly associating it with the sacrifice of Isaac. Abraham journeyed from the land of the Philistines, and on the 3rd day he saw the place afar off. This naturally suggests some prominent mountain farther North than Jerusalem. The description could hardly apply to Jerusalem in any case, as it could not be seen “afar off” by one approaching either from the South or the West.

The mountains associated with Jerusalem today are Mount Ophen, Mount Zion and Mount Moriah. I believe Mount Ophen is actually part of Mount Moriah which rises to 2,549 feet. The Temple Mount sets at 2,428 feet. I believe the entire City of David was built on the lowest part of Mount Moriah. Mount Zion stands at 2,533 feet and to the east of Jerusalem across the Kidron Valley lies the Mount of Olives rising 2,739 feet. Most translations say the Temple was built “on” Mount Moriah. The King James Version says “in” Mount Moriah. Mount or “har” in Hebrew can mean mountain, hill or hill country.

Jesus ascended into Heaven from the Mount of Olives. Even before Solomon the Mount of Olives was used as a Jewish burial place. There are more than 150,000 graves there today. When King David wrote about the Shadow of the Valley of Death he was writing about the Kidron Valley. Below is a photo of the Kidron Valley looking south with the Temple mount on the right and the Mount of Olives on the left. The tomb in the valley with the pointed top is the tomb of Absalom, David’s third son.

Absalom

It was Mount Zion where the Tabernacle rested and David in times of stress would look up from the City of David and see the place where the Ark rested. Seeing the Tabernacle would give David the peace to compose and sing inspiring psalms of faith. “From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy Tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.” Psalm 61:2-4

A hundred and fifty years ago, Mount Zion was believed to be the location of the City of David. Even 100 years ago it was still debated. I think there is no argument today that the City of David was located to the south of the Temple Mount. There are various claims that David’s Palace has been found but this is disputed. When Jesus spoke of the Temple and said that not one stone would be left upon another, He gave an accurate description. So complete was the destruction of the Temple and the City of David that not one piece of evidence was found to prove that David ever existed until The Tel Dan Tablet was discovered in Northern Israel in 1994. It is pictured below and mentions “The House of David.”

HouseDavid

The Roman Fort built by King Herod around 19 BC but not completely finished until long after his death was named for Mark Anthony, Herod’s friend and Cleopatra’s boyfriend. Fort Antonia was described by Josephus as being like a city with large areas for troop parades. A legion of troops and support personnel totaling 10,000 personnel were housed there. Like all major fortresses, Josephus describes Fort Antonia as being built over a “rock” the highest point of the area. We are to believe that this mighty fortress occupied a tiny space on the Temple Mount next to the Jewish Temple?  I believe the image below fairly accurately depicts the Antonio Fort.

Antonia

Over a thousand years after Abraham was to sacrifice Isaac, Solomon built the Temple on the spot that had been the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. A threshing floor was a hard surface where sheaves where placed and then tread by oxen and cattle to loosen the edible part of cereal grain from the inedible chaff that surrounds it. Then winnowing forks were used to throw the mixture into the air so the wind could blow away the chaff, leaving only the good grain on the floor.

Both the Old and New Testaments refer to the threshing floor as a symbol of judgment. Hosea prophesied that because Israel had repeatedly turned from God to false idols, His judgment upon them would scatter them to the winds as the chaff from the threshing floor. “Therefore they will be like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears, like chaff swirling from a threshing floor, like smoke escaping through a window” (Hosea 9:2). As you know, Israel ceased to exist in 586 BC even though there were Jews living in the land later under Greek and Roman rule. It was 2,534 years later when the Jews reclaimed the Promised Land in 1948.

King Solomon built the Temple on the site of the threshing floor of Ornan which was in the City of David. The Temple Mount was never in the City of David. Josephus also tells us that the Antonia Fortress was built on a rock 25 meters above the Temple Mount floor platform. In simple terms, that means the fort floor was 82 feet higher than the Temple floor. That’s eight stories higher. The height of the Western Wall is 19 meters or 62 feet. That would put the floor of the Temple 20 feet lower than the bottom of the Western Wall once referred to as the Wailing Wall. It makes sense to me that Ornan would pick a low spot for his threshing floor. The workers would not have to carry wheat up the hill and the oxen would not have to climb the equivalent of eight stories to trample the wheat. An additional clue that the Temple was lower than the Fort is the fact that the Commander of Antonia came down to the Temple when Paul caused turmoil there.

American archaeologist and author, the late Professor Dr. Ernest L. Martin, conducted archaeology work in East Jerusalem before writing his book “The Temples that Jerusalem Forgot,” published in 1999 Dr. Martin claimed that Muslim sacred places, Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of Rock are not built on top of the Temple Mount ruins. Several other historians in the past have reached similar conclusions that the 45-acre landmass known as Haram al-Sharif to the Muslim world since 638 AD – is in fact a Roman fortress built by King Herod. Furthermore, the Jewish holy Wailing Wall (the Western Wall) had never been part of the first or second Temples. In the early 1970s, Professor Benjamin Mazar, former President of Hebrew University, confirmed that Haram al-Sharif was indeed a Roman fortress.

According to Dr. Martin, the Hebrew Temples were built south of the fort over Gihon Spring. Martin also explained how Haram al-Sharif was comparable in size and water supply to other Roman fortresses built to guard Roman occupied cities.  I like the aerial photo below.  Just above the center of the bottom of the photo the lower part of Mount Moriah begins.  This area along the Kidron Valley was the City of David reaching almost to the Temple Mount.  You can judge that much of this part of the Mount is about 80 feet or eight stories below the floor of the Temple Mount.  The topography has surely changed some since David’s time 3,000 years ago.

Josephus in his book ‘The War of Jews’ quoted Jewish rebel commander at Masada in 73 AD saying: “Where is this city that was believed to have God himself inhabiting therein? It is now demolished to the very foundations, and hath nothing left but that monument of it preserved; I mean the camp of those that hath destroyed it, which still dwells upon its ruins”.

Professor George Wesley Buchanan, a United Methodist minister, wrote a research article entitled Misunderstanding about Temple Mount, published by the Washington Report (August 2011). “In biblical times the Haram was not a sacred place. Instead it was the place that Orthodox Jews considered defiled and the most despised place in the world. Within these walls were found no remnants of any of the earlier Temples but rather an image of Mars, the Roman god of war,” wrote Buchanan.

“After two violent wars with Rome, the City of David was so completely destroyed that it could not be recognized as a city. The Roman emperor Hadrian decreed that it would be used as an area where the Upper City could dump trash and garbage. It continued in that condition for hundreds of years,” wrote Buchanan. The Muslim Arab army, which took control of Jerusalem in 638, observed the City of David being used as a city garbage dump.

I am pleased that serious scholars are researching facts rather than perpetuating old wives’ tales. For all of my life people have believed that the Mosque would have to be destroyed before the Hebrew Temple could be rebuilt. What does it say when Christians and Jews don’t even know where the Holy Temple was? If Josephus was correct, I would look for the site 25 meters or 82 feet below the so-called Temple Mount. Perhaps even lower depending on the height of the foundation. Josephus was meticulous in his research and writing.

Most Christians and Jews also don’t know where Abraham came from. I am absolutely positive It was not the Ur halfway between Baghdâd and the Persian Gulf, but that is a story for another time.

THE ARK OF THE COVENANT

August 10, 2014

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Java

While Moses was in the wilderness near Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia, God commanded him to build the Ark. The Apostle Paul spent three years in the same area after his conversion on the Road to Damascus. It was Constantine’s mother, Queen Helena who mistakenly placed Mount Sinai in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Paul wrote in Galatians, “For this Agar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.” Paul wrote almost 25% of the New Testament and was clearly the most traveled and hardest working apostle. While Paul did not make a big issue about how he became so knowledgeable, it is clear to me that he was taught directly by God, perhaps on the Holy Mountain. He did not get his understanding from teachings by Jewish Scholars although he was an expert in all the ways of the Jews.

This is also the area where Moses fled to from Egypt and married the daughter of the Priest of Median and where he saw the burning bush where God first spoke to him.

The Ark was constructed of acacia wood and plated with pure gold, inside and out. On the bottom, four gold rings were attached, through which two acacia wood poles plated in gold were placed so the family of Kehath, of the tribe of Levi, could safely carry the Ark. The Ark was approximately 45 inches long by 27 inches in height and width. Two pure gold sculpted Cherubs faced one another on the top of the Ark. The top or lid of the Ark was called the Mercy Seat from whence God communicated with His people. It was the seat of mercy much like a county Courthouse is the County Seat or seat of power as opposed to a place to sit down. The Tablets of the Ten Commandments which were broken by Moses and then restored by God were placed in the Ark by Moses himself.

Acacia trees would have been one of the few types of trees growing in the wilderness. There are several species of acacia growing in Arabia today. In addition, acacia wood is dense and extremely strong, making it a great option for any type of enduring wooden construction. It is resistant to decay because the tree deposits many waste substances in the heartwood which serve as preservatives and render the wood unpalatable to insects and making the wood dense and difficult to be penetrated by water and other decay agents.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~2

This is a table made of acacia wood. Perhaps it will last at least a thousand years as the Ark did from its creation until the destruction of the Temple by the Babylonians.

The Ark was built by Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, who constructed the entire Tabernacle – the portable Temple used in the desert and during the conquest of the land of Israel. The Tabernacle was the resting place for the Ark, and also contained other vessels that were used in the physical worship of God. The Ark was used in the desert and in Israel proper for a number of spiritual and pragmatic purposes. Practically, God used the Ark as an indicator of when he wanted the nation to travel, and when to stop. In the traveling formation in the desert, the Ark was carried 2000 cubits ahead of the nation.  Below is a representation of the Tabernacle with an acacia tree in front.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Taber

Spiritually, the Ark was the manifestation of God’s physical presence on earth. When God spoke with Moses in the desert, he did so from between the two Cherubs. Once the Ark was moved into the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle, and later in the Temple, it was accessible only once a year, and then, only by one person. On Yom Kippur, the High Priest could enter the Holy of Holies to ask forgiveness for himself and for all the nation of Israel.

The holiness of the Ark made it dangerous to those who came in contact with it. When Nadav and Avihu, the sons of Aaron, brought a foreign flame to offer a sacrifice in the Tabernacle, they were devoured by a fire that emanated “from the Lord.” During the saga of the capture of the Ark by the Philistines, numerous people, including some who merely looked at the Ark, were killed by its power. Similarly, the Priests who served in the Tabernacle and Temple were told that viewing the Ark at an improper time would result in immediate death.

The Ark accompanied the Jews throughout their time in the desert, traveling with them and accompanying them to their wars with Emor and Midian. When the Jews crossed into the land of Canaan, the waters of the Jordan River miraculously split as the bearers of the Ark arrived. Throughout their conquest of the land, the Jews were accompanied by the Ark. The most dramatic demonstration of its power comes when the Jews breached the walls of Jericho merely by circling them, blowing horns and carrying the Ark.

After the conquest was completed, the Ark, and the entire Tabernacle, were set up in Shiloh . There they remained until the battles of the Jews with the Philistines during the Priesthood of Eli. The Jews, after suffering a defeat at the Philistines’ hands, took the Ark from Shiloh to Even-Ezer in hopes of winning the next battle. But the Jews were routed, and the Ark was captured by the Philistines. Back in Shiloh, Eli, the High Priest, immediately died upon hearing the news.

The Philistines took the Ark back to Ashdod, their capital city in the south of Canaan, where they placed it in the temple of their god Dagon. The next day, however, they found the idol fallen on its face. After replacing the statue, they found it the next day decapitated, with only its trunk remaining, and soon afterward, the entire city of Ashdod was struck with a plague. The Philistines moved the Ark to the city of Gath, and from there to Ekron, but whatever city the Ark was in, the inhabitants were struck with plague. After seven months, the Philistines decided to send the Ark back to the Israelites, and accompanied it with expensive gifts.

King Solomon built the Holy Temple and summoned the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families to Jerusalem. to bring up the ark of the Lord’s covenant from Zion, the City of David. And all the Israelites came together to the king at the time of the festival in the seventh month.

When all the elders of Israel had arrived, the Levites took up the ark, and they brought up the ark and the tent of meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it. The Levitical priests carried them up; and King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel that had gathered about him were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted.

The priests then brought the ark of the Lord’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim. The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark and covered the ark and its carrying poles. These poles were so long that their ends, extending from the ark, could be seen from in front of the inner sanctuary, but not from outside the Holy Place; and they are still there today. There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the Lord made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt.

The priests then withdrew from the Holy Place. All the priests who were there had consecrated themselves, regardless of their divisions. All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets. The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:

“He is good;
his love endures forever.”
Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~XA

The Ark remained in the Temple until its destruction at the hand of the Babylonian empire, led by King Nebuchadnezzar. The stories are endless about where the Ark was taken or hidden before or after the Temple was destroyed. It is unlikely that the Babylonians took it, as they did the other vessels of the Temple, because the detailed lists of what they took make no mention of the Ark. According to some sources, Josiah, one of the final kings to reign in the First Temple period, learned of the impending invasion of the Babylonians and hid the Ark. Perhaps in a hole dug under the wood storehouse on the Temple Mount. Another account says that Solomon foresaw the eventual destruction of the Temple, and set aside a cave near the Dead Sea, in which Josiah eventually hid the Ark.

One of the most fascinating possibilities is advanced by Ethiopian Christians who claim that they have the Ark today. In Axum, Ethiopia, it is widely believed that the Ark is currently being held in the Church of Saint Mary of Zion, guarded by a monk known as the “Keeper of the Ark,” who claims to have it in his possession. According to the Axum Christian community, they acquired the Ark during the reign of Solomon, when his son Menelik, whose mother was the Queen of Sheba, stole the Ark after a visit to Jerusalem. While in the not-so-distant past the “Ark” has been brought out for Christian holidays, its keeper has not done so for several years due to the tumultuous political situation in the country. The claim has thus been impossible to verify, for no one but the monk is allowed inside.

Another claim is that of archaeologist Leen Ritmeyer, who conducted research on the Temple Mount and inside the Dome of the Rock. He claims to have found the spot on the Mount where the Holy of Holies was located during the First Temple period. In the precise center of that spot is a section of bedrock cut out in dimensions that may match those of the Ark. Since I do not believe the Temple was built on the so-called Temple Mount, I discount this story. I will explain why the Temple Mount is not the Temple Mount in a later posting and will also tell you where the Temple was built and why even the foundation of the Temple was completely destroyed.

I promised I would tell you everything you need to know about the Ark of the Covenant. The information comes from the Great Prophet Jeremiah who saw the destruction of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple. He also witnessed the death of Josiah, the last devout King of Israel. Jeremiah loved King Josiah dearly and knew what his death meant. Soon afterward, the people reverted to idolatry. Jeremiah strove hard to stem the tide of spiritual depravity which was threatening to undermine their high moral standards. One of the prophet’s famous sayings is the one in which he points out that wisdom, might, and riches, are nothing compared to the happiness that man achieves through real knowledge and understanding of the ways of God: “Thus saith the Lord: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might; let not the rich man glory in his riches. But let him that glorieth, glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord Who exercises mercy, justice, and righteousness on the earth; for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Maddow

Jeremiah prophesied about the Babylonian threat and warned the Jews of the terrible devastation they would incur if they did not stop worshiping idols and mistreating each other. But his gloomy prophecies, recorded in the Book of Jeremiah, went largely unheeded by the Jews, who mocked and persecuted him. Some eighteen years before the destruction of the Temple, Jeremiah was imprisoned by King Jehoiakim for his persistent prophecies foretelling the fall of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah summoned his devoted disciple, Baruch ben Neriah, and dictated to him a heart-rending and graphic warning of the coming doom; the prophecy Baruch wrote down for Jeremiah and read in the Temple is contained in the Book of Lamentations in the Holy Bible. The Temple was destroyed in 586 BC.

Here is what Jeremiah wrote about the Ark and his prophecy for the Ark and the future of Israel as recorded in The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 3:

“Return, faithless people,” declares the Lord, “for I am your husband. I will choose you—one from a town and two from a clan—and bring you to Zion. Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land,” declares the Lord, “people will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of the Lord.’ It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made. At that time they will call Jerusalem The Throne of the Lord, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the Lord. No longer will they follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts. In those days the people of Judah will join the people of Israel, and together they will come from a northern land to the land I gave your ancestors as an inheritance.

“I myself said,

“‘How gladly would I treat you like my children
and give you a pleasant land,
the most beautiful inheritance of any nation.’
I thought you would call me ‘Father’
and not turn away from following me.
But like a woman unfaithful to her husband,
so you, Israel, have been unfaithful to me,”
declares the Lord.
A cry is heard on the barren heights,
the weeping and pleading of the people of Israel,
because they have perverted their ways
and have forgotten the Lord their God.
“Return, faithless people;
I will cure you of backsliding.”
“Yes, we will come to you,
for you are the Lord our God.
Surely the idolatrous commotion on the hills
and mountains is a deception;
surely in the Lord our God
is the salvation of Israel.
From our youth shameful gods have consumed
the fruits of our ancestors’ labor—
their flocks and herds,
their sons and daughters.
Let us lie down in our shame,
and let our disgrace cover us.
We have sinned against the Lord our God,
both we and our ancestors;
from our youth till this day
we have not obeyed the Lord our God.”

The Ark was the Throne of God; as it set in the Tabernacle on Mount Zion it gave King David peace as he could look up to it from the City of David. Jeremiah said The Ark would be forgotten as Jerusalem becomes The Throne of God and the Seat of His Government. Jerusalem will not be trampled down by gentiles forever. One glorious day Jerusalem will once again become that shining city on the Mountains of Moriah.

CARTER LETS CAT OUT OF THE BAG

August 6, 2014

UPDATE:  Carter recently published a call for the international community to recognize Hamas as a legitimate political actor in the Middle East, cheering the terrorists and angering Israel’s supporters.

Now, according to a report from Breitbart, retired Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says that Carter’s piece could be interpreted as “recruitment” for Hamas, which is an officially designated Foreign Terrorist Organization under U.S. law. If that is the case and Carter is found to have provided “material support” to Hamas, he could be found guilty of a felony.

 

IS JIMMY CARTER REPRESENTATIVE OF MAINSTREAM DEMOCRATIC PROGRESSIVE THINKING?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~xaa

 

The depth of Carter’s anti-Israel prejudice was already on display eight-years ago when he insisted that the Israeli occupation of the West Bank “perpetrates even worse instances of apartness, or apartheid, than we witnessed even in South Africa.” You probably never heard of his book, “Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid.” I just checked Amazon and it’s ranked 652,787th.

I will not guarantee but I’m pretty sure Jimmy Carter can read. He has written and spoke in support of Hamas, so surely he has read the Hamas Charter issued on August 18, 1988. The Charter identified Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and declares its members to be Muslims who “fear God and raise the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors.” The charter states that “our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious” and calls for the creation of an Islamic state in Palestine in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel.

If you have been reading my various posts in the past you know that several members of the Muslim Brotherhood occupy high ranking positions in the Obama Administration including highly sensitive positions. You will also remember Obama’s eagerness to give F-16’s and Abrams Tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood. I will briefly include some of the Hamas Charter:

The Preamble to the Charter states: ″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.″

Article 8 The Hamas document reiterates the Muslim Brotherhood’s slogan of “Allah is its goal, the Prophet is the model, the Qur’an its constitution, jihad its path, and death for the sake of Allah its most sublime belief.”

Article 13 There is no negotiated settlement possible. Jihad is the only answer.

Article 14 The liberation of Palestine is the personal duty of every Palestinian.

Article 20 Calls for action “by the people as a single body” against “a vicious enemy which acts in a way similar to Nazism, making no differentiation between man and woman, between children and old people.”

Jimmy Carter’s assertions would probably be quickly dismissed as lunacy even by the Democrat controlled news agencies if it were not for the fact that Carter is a former President of the United States.

To make Carter’s views seem even more radical, the Israeli military just captured a Hamas Manual on Urban Warfare called, “Introduction to City War.” The manual extols the benefit that can be gained by civilian deaths and openly acknowledges that Israel will do everything it can to avoid them. The Cover shows images of militants wielding rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons. It further brags about the propaganda value of the deaths of innocent women and children. The destruction of civilian homes is especially good for Hamas as it increases the hatred of the citizens toward Israel and increases their support for Hamas.

The manual, which came from the Shuja’iya Brigade of Hamas’ military wing, also explained how heavily populated urban areas — called “pockets of resistance” — make operations for the IDF difficult because Israeli soldiers try very hard not to harm civilians.

Any legitimate observer knows that Hamas exploits civilians as human shields but steadfastly refuses to report about it. Hamas has even used UN facilities to store rockets and missiles. Meanwhile, the UN has formally condemned Israel scores of times and almost every nation is lined up against the tiny country.

Israel is known throughout Islam as “Little Satan” and the United States is called “Big Satan.” Israel has support from the American People and would like to have support from the U.S. government but they don’t need it. Israel has support from God and will be saved in the end. God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. You have been warned.

What Happened to Harvard’s Christian Roots?

August 1, 2014

WHERE DID BIG GOVERNMENT LIBERALISM COME FROM?

Has Harvard abandoned its Christian roots like many other universities?

~~~~~~~Harvard

Harvard was founded by Puritans as a Seminary for training clergy for the new commonwealth, a “church in the wilderness.” Harvard was formed in 1636 by vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It was initially called “New College” or “the college at New Towne”. In 1638 the school received a printing press—the only press in North America.

In 1639, the college was renamed Harvard College after clergyman John Harvard, a University of Cambridge alumnus who had willed the new school £779 pounds sterling and his library of some 400 books.

Henry Dunster, the college’s first president, was a Baptist who abandoned Puritanism in favor of the Baptist faith in 1654. Dunster’s conflict with the colony’s magistrates began when he failed to have his infant son baptized, believing, as a newly converted Baptist, that only adults should be baptized. Efforts to restore Dunster to Puritan orthodoxy failed, and his apostasy proved untenable to colony leaders who had entrusted him, in his job as Harvard’s president, to uphold the colony’s religious mission. Thus, he represented a threat to the stability of society. Dunster exiled himself in 1654 and moved to nearby Plymouth Colony, where he died in 1658.

In 1692, the leading Puritan divine Increase Mather became president of Harvard. One of his acts was replacing pagan classics with books by Christian authors in ethics classes, and maintaining a high standard of discipline. The Harvard “Lawes” of 1642 and the “Harvard College Laws of 1700″ testify to its original high level of discipline. Students were required to observe rules of pious decorum inconceivable in the 19th century, and ultimately to prove their fitness for the bachelor’s degree by showing that they could ‘read the original of the Old and New Testament into the Latin tongue, and resolve them logically.’

By the 1690s, liberal, anti-Calvinist influences began to infiltrate the governing body of the college. And by 1701, Harvard’s liberal tendencies had become so pronounced that a new orthodox college was founded at New Haven, Connecticut, which became Yale University. All the founders of Yale were Harvard graduates in the Connecticut Valley or on Long Island Sound.

On October 28, 1707, John Leverett became President of Harvard. This was the first time that a layman and a liberal was elected President. Although Leverett instituted no changes in the curriculum, his liberal policies began to be reflected in student behavior. He wrote in his own diary in 1717 that the Faculty was having trouble with “profane swearing,” “riotous Actions” and “bringing Cards into the College.” Many college clubs were founded by students, which encouraged questionable behavior.

By 1800, the liberal seed, first sown by Leverett, became the full-blown fruit of Unitarianism, which rejected the Trinity, rejected the divinity of Christ, and rejected all the tenets of Calvinism. The final battle that ended the ongoing war between the orthodox and Unitarians took place in 1805 when Reverend Henry Ware, a Unitarian minister, was elected Hollis Professor of Divinity. Thus the theological department of New England’s oldest university went Unitarian and became open enemies of Calvinism, setting Harvard on a secular course that would become increasingly non-Christian.

The distaste that Harvard liberals today show toward Christian fundamentalism is a continuation of their war against Trinitarian orthodoxy. It should be noted that Secular Humanism is a direct outgrowth of Harvard’s Unitarian philosophy.

Unitarianism is not a revealed religion. It is a social movement based on the notion that man is basically good and morally perfectible, and that all that is needed to achieve this moral utopia is a good secular education. And that is why the Unitarians became the major force in the public school movement.

It should also be noted that Unitarian liberalism is at the core of American political liberalism, for the chief practice of Unitarians was and still is social political activism based on the belief that government could solve all of our problems. And that’s the liberal political philosophy that prevails today.

This year Harvard was scheduled to host an anti-Christian Satanic Black Mass on campus but after widespread condemnation from religious and educational leaders, it was cancelled.

No Mas Huddled Masses

July 31, 2014

~~~~~~~~~~OCycle

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning
to live the good life at the expense
of hard working Americans and
barely surviving Veterans.

 

~~~~~~~~~~GPP

Over the years the US Government has lavished Guatemala with billions and billions of US Taxpayer’s dollars. Like Chicago, crime is out of control in Guatemala City, the capital. What has the government done with those billions? Helped their 15 million people? Cracked down on crime? Provided education and healthcare for their children? I don’t think so!!! They are shipping their children with health problems to the good old United States and the open arms of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Jeb Bush, John Boehner and the Chamber of Commerce.

Hospitals, School Districts, and law enforcement agencies are already struggling with our own population and the 20 million are so illegal aliens already here.  The Obama Regime is secretly placing these kids in states without even informing the Governors.  They are not going to Detroit but for the most part, Obama is choosing Red States.  Each illegal, many sporting their gang tattoos, require interpreters that our schools can’t afford.

Meanwhile in Guatemala, developers are building a private city on the outskirts of Guatemala City as a safe haven from the crime-ridden capital.

~~~~~~~~~~GPPP

Paseo Cayala is a 34-acre development of apartments, shops, nightclubs, boutiques and restaurants contained inside white walls at the edge of the city. Developers hope to eventually expand the project into a new private city spread across hundreds of acres. Access is by car through a single gate leading to an underground garage, from which visitors emerge through covered escalators onto streets patrolled by armed guards.

Why should the Guatemala upper class deal with their own pesky problems outside their white walls when Uncle Sugar Barack and good old Dingy Harry are so willing to put the United States deeper and deeper in debt to deal with them?

I, for one, appreciate the Mexican workers who come to the United States legally with Work Visas each year.  I appreciated the millions of hard working Hispanics who have become citizens and contribute to our society.  I love Mexican food!  BUT America is teetering on the fiscal cliff and cannot take in the billions of poor people from all over the World.  Our government will not even take care of our Veterans that our government committed to war in hot, dangerous faraway countries.

Our billions of dollars in Foreign Aid is not trickling down to the poor people.  It goes toward building tunnels into Israel by Hamas, buying jet fighters for the Muslim Brotherhood and building lavish palaces for dictators.  It is time for bleeding heart liberals to reach into their own pockets and stop destroying MY COUNTRY!

Do you have an opinion? After the Democrats and RINOs are through with America, who will take care of our children?

ALL FOR THE LOVE OF SERGEANT BERGDAHL

July 30, 2014

UPDATE:  Major General Kenneth R. Dahl, Deputy Commanding General, I Corps Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has been appointed to carry out what is known as an AR 15-6 investigation and compile a report on the disappearance of Sergeant Bergdahl. The report will be sent up the chain of command, and it could lead to administrative or nonjudicial punishments, or court-martial or maybe the report will fade away like Fast & Furious or Benghazi.  Superior officers could also conclude that no punishments are warranted.  I ask you to consider the kid gloves Bergdahl is being handled with compared to the rapidity Navy Seals were subjected to Court Martial and scores of Patriotic Generals, Admirals, Captains and Colonels were summarily fired!  General Dahl pictured below.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~acaciatree

 

I haven’t had much to say about Bowie Bergdahl, his parents or the President doting over all of them. However, after reading a CNN article that made my head swim and my stomach churn, I decided to do what all the government investigators in the world cannot, or will not do, sort out the facts for you, my friends.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~PR

I will begin by presenting a little background about the Bergdahl family. The Bergdahl’s reside in Hailey, Idaho, a town of about 8,000 where Demi Moore moved to raise her children. Hailey was also the birthplace of Ezra Pound, an expatriate American poet and critic who helped discover and shape the work of contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Robert Frost and Ernest Hemingway. Hailey is County Seat of Blaine County, a deep blue county in the midst of a sea of red counties in the red state of Idaho. The town planed a welcome home extravaganza for Bowe and yellow ribbons adorn signs and trees along the main drag.

Bowe was home schooled by his mother. The family attended Sovereign Redeemer Presbyterian, an Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He received a GED certificate through the College of Southern Idaho in his early 20s. As an adult, he studied and practiced fencing and martial arts before switching to ballet classes. He never owned a car; he rode his bicycle everywhere. He spent time in a Buddhist monastery between 2007 and 2008. It was reported by the Taliban in 2012 that Bowe Bergdahl had converted to Islam and was teaching its jihadists how to make bombs.

I think we can all agree that Bowe is a complicated and somewhat confused young man who is searching for his place in the universe? So what happened in Afghanistan? Did a Taliban raiding party capture young Bowe and drag him kicking and screaming into the dark Afghan night? Clearly he was not captured but left his weapon, his kit, and other sensitive items and abandoned his post during wartime taking only some water, a compass and a knife. Shortly after deserting, some afghan kids saw an American walking north asking for directions to the Taliban. Soon after, voice intercepts confirmed that he found the Taliban. That is when his unit realized, “the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban.”

Soon after, Bergdahl’s fellow American soldiers were placed under a gag order that threatened them with legal action if they spoke about Bergdahl’s desertion. I hope you have been keeping up with the scores of Generals and Admirals Obama has fired recently in his purge and Bergdahlization of the Military.

Bowe found his beloved Taliban, now what? I don’t trust anything the Obama Regime or the Taliban says but here is what the Taliban reported that is corroborated by released US secret documents dated August 23, 2012, “conditions for Bergdahl have greatly relaxed since the time of the escape [from the US Miltary]. Bergdahl has converted to Islam and now describes himself as a mujahid [a military force of Muslim guerilla warriors engaged in a jihad]. Bergdahl enjoys a modicum of freedom, and engages in target practice with the local mujahedeen, firing AK47s. Bergdahl is even allowed to carry a loaded gun on occasion. Bergdahl plays soccer with his guards and bounds around the pitch like a mad man. He appears to be well and happy, and has a noticeable habit of laughing frequently and saying ‘Salaam’ repeatedly.”

Did I mention that just before Bowe deserted he exchanged emails with his dad? Bowe wrote: “I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid… In the U.S. Army you are cut down for being honest … but if you are a conceited brown-nosing sh– bag you will be allowed to do whatever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank … I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

His father responded: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”

Just last month the Pentagon announced it is reviewing claims that U.S. soldiers were killed in the course of the years-long search for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, Oh goody, Obama’s Army will get to the bottom of all this!

With Bowe happily cavorting with his Taliban buddies, things did start to happen. Fighting increased, IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. IEDs started going off directly under the U.S. Army trucks where they would do the most damage. They were getting perfect hits every time. Their ambushes were very calculated, very methodical. While soldiers were out looking for Bowe, friendly camps and positions were attacked. The whole region was impacted. Bergdahl knew where the trucks would be going and when. He knew about movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things that the enemy could exploit. The soldiers were incredibly worried that Bowe was passing this information on to his captors in order to help them place their bombs most effectively.

While Bowe was target practicing with AK47’s and dining with the Taliban, the United States Army promoted him to Sergeant or “handed him his rank.” National Security Advisor Susan Rice said that Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction.”

I guess as time wore on and the Taliban didn’t see fit to make Bergdahl Head of the Supreme Council even with his ballet dancing experience, a plan was hatched to let him go back to the America he hated so much. The Taliban demanded the release of these specific commanders in exchange for Bowe. Here is the Taliban Dream Team President Obama poured out on the world:

Abdul Haq Wasiq, served as the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence. He reportedly used his office to support Al Qaeda “and to assist Taliban personnel elude capture.” He also reportedly arranged for Al Qaeda personnel to train Taliban intelligence staff.

Mullah Norullah Noori, a senior Taliban military commander, described as a military mastermind who engaged in hostilities against U.S. and Coalition forces in Zabul Province and has close ties to Taliban leader Mullah Omar and other senior Taliban officials. Noori, who was named as the Taliban governor for the Balkh and Lagman provinces, is wanted by the United Nations for war crimes including the murder and torture of thousands of Shiite Muslims.

Mullah Mohammad Fazi, former Taliban Deputy Defense Minister and senior commander who served as chief of staff of the Taliban Army and as a commander of its 22nd Division. He’s also wanted by the United Nations on war crimes for the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims in Afghanistan.

Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, is the former governor of the Herat province and had close ties with Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar. He represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against US and coalition forces.

Mohammad Nabi Omari, held multiple leadership roles in various terror-related groups. He worked border security for the Taliban – a position that gave him “access to senior Taliban commander and leader of the Haqqani Network, Jalaluddin Haqqani, During the early 1990s, he ping-ponged between Taliban-related positions and others, including a stint as a used car salesman.

While Bowe was with his chosen buddies, his father grew a long beard and learned to speak Pashto. I doubt than any of his customers would recognize the former UPS delivery man, An unbelievable moment in American history occurred in the White House Rose Garden when President Barack Obama smiled very perceptibly as Robert Bergdahl uttered the famous Islamic war cry of victory for Allah, “bismillah-al-rahman-al-rahim.” According to Barack Obama, “The most beautiful sound in the world is the Islamic call to prayer.” At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte where the Democrats loudly booed God, an ancillary event featured two hours of “Jumah” or Friday prayers. The Democrats expected thousands to attend but were disappointed when less than 50 showed up.

If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you may not be a liberal America hating Democrat? Bowe Bergdahl is what passes for an American Hero in the Obama Democratic Regime. In my book, Bergdahl deserted his post in combat, collaborated with the enemy and deserves a Court Martial and probably execution. The President and his minions who negotiated with terrorists should be ostracized by every patriotic American and every news organization. Obama made EVERY American a target everywhere in the world.

To investigate, much less to try Bowe Bergdahl, despite the fact that evidence of his misconduct continues to mount, would require an honest president, a robust opposition party, and a media determined to uncover the truth. Strike one, strike two, strike three.

I am not aware of ANY communications between Bowe Bergdahl and his parents since his release and return to duty in San Antonio. I don’t know if a State Dinner is in the future or the Medal of Honor? Perhaps Bowe Bergdahl will receive the Nobel Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom? Do you remember that Navy Seals were arrested and remanded for Court Martial for what was probably a self inflicted cut on the lip of a terrorist they had captured? Are you sick of this yet?

NEW WORLD ORDER (pt 2)

July 29, 2014

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~2

 

This blog will probe the deep dark underbelly of America. A dark side many of you never dreamed existed. If it frightens you, remember that God is still in control and these things must come to pass as it is written in Holy Scriptures.

Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton amazingly look up to the very same role model. Isn’t it amazing that both Democrat Presidential contenders in 2008 would be so closely attuned?

Their role model was a Luciferian who dedicated his book to Lucifer. In an interview, this role model was asked if he believed in an afterlife. His response, “Sometimes it seems to me that the question people should ask is not ‘Is there life after death?’ but ‘Is there life after birth?’ I don’t know whether there’s anything after this or not. I haven’t seen the evidence one way or the other and I don’t think anybody else has either. But I do know that man’s obsession with the question comes out of his stubborn refusal to face up to his own mortality. Let’s say that if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell. Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there.”

Their role model who preferred Hell over Heaven was radical Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky. Alinsky’s ideas have been used by the Left in inner cities and college campuses. Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis at Wellesley College was on Alinsky. So influential is Alinsky that Time magazine once wrote that “American democracy is being altered by Alinsky’s ideas.” Even conservative author William F. Buckley said Alinsky was “very close to being an organizational genius.” Alinsky biographer Sanford Horwitt claims that not only did Obama follow Alinsky’s teachings as a Chicago-based community organizer; Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was also influenced by those teachings.

Is it possible that Alinsky was an admirer of Lucifer and Alinsky’s disciples are not? Lucifer, the rebel angel so full of pride that he thought himself to be “as God” — who Jesus said “fell as lightning” and so became Satan.

Secret organizations are often intertwined including the Luciferians, Illuminati, Builderbergers, Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

David Rockefeller at the Trilateral Commission in June of 1991 stated: “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

Each year, about 130 guests converge on a different location to participate in the Bilderberg Group’s annual meeting. Numerous attendees of the Bilderberg Conference are known to also be members of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations and other such secret groups expanding the web of elite to a global network of politicians, bankers, and directors of corporations. Over eighteen national leaders have attended Bilderberg meetings. The European Union, NATO, United Nations, and World Trade Organization all have representatives present and many corporations have representatives in attendance including BP, Heinz, PepsiCo, Shell Oil, Walgreen’s and Barclays Bank. Editors from The New York Times and Washington Post rub elbows with royalty including the King of Spain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. Even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and past presidents can be seen in the crowd. For a long time it was rumors and crazy talk of people having secret meetings, but no longer. The list of past attendees is the crème de la crème of international politics, industry, media, energy and royalty. With important members of the media attending the meeting, isn’t it strange that nothing is EVER reported in the media about the Bilderberg group.

Over the course of human history, secrecy has been used to gain prominence in order to build up the machinations of power. Is that power earned or given? Where does this modern day power lie, with presidents, billionaires, celebrities and royalty; with intellectuals, entertainers, media titans or businessmen? Some people claim that the unfolding of world events is not merely the aggregate of random individual actions, but a specific predetermined plan, enacted by a small group of unelected power brokers, acting behind closed doors and answerable to no one.

Of all the secret societies accused of manipulating the media and controlling world events to form a New World Order, claims against the Bilderbergers are ones to be taken seriously. Could that be the reality? Well, the Bilderberg Group , a shadowy secret society born in the ashes of World War II denies any connection with that conspiracy and according to them, their meetings are just nice annual get togethers with no policies made, no votes taken and only great food and a little chit chat.

At one time its membership was a fiercely guarded secret along with its mission, but now that the Bilderberg meetings have been exposed and made public they acknowledge only a benevolent gathering. There is evidence that it’s been involved in choosing international leaders, manipulating the global economy and pressing for a unified world government. I certainly appears to me that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee is onboard as they prepare to give Barack Obama a second Peace Prize.

In his book, “Conspirators’ Hierarchy – The Committee of 300,” Dr. John Coleman delves into these secret societies and many others. The full text of Dr. Coleman’s book can be found on the internet at no cost or can purchased at Amazon. Here is a quote from the book, “the old American way of life, our true and trusted republican form of government based upon our Constitution, was going to be crushed by the New World Order. America as we knew it was going to have to go, or be crushed to pieces.”

The destruction of America will not cause these evil, demonic people to blink their eyes. The establishment of a One World Government or New World Order with one currency and one leader is their dream. They have no respect now for our flag, the pledge of allegiance, the National Anthem, our military, our Founding Fathers, our Constitution, our religions or any of our freedoms.

I am not going to write a novel here, I simply want you to do your research and share what you learn. Be skeptical about everybody and everything. Most of all, be ready for anything and have an escape plan.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Eph

 

Several years ago I walked the streets of Ephesus where the Apostles Paul and John walked. I want to share some of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians:

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

As I understand Scripture, I believe we are about to experience a terrible war that precedes Armageddon. During that war, Damascus will likely be totally destroyed and many people will be killed. When things get so bad and when Israel inflicts so much damage on invading countries, there will be a Peace Treaty. After the Treaty is signed, there will be three and a half years of peace. During the following three and a half years things will get very ugly.

When Jesus preached on Earth, He quoted Daniel. Daniel was even revered by King Nebuchadnezzar after Daniel was able to reveal the meaning of his dream that laid out the succession of world powers. When Nebuchadnezzar was tricked into sentencing Daniel to the lion’s den by Demonic soothsayers, God protected Daniel and restored him to prominence. I think we can trust Daniel, don’t you?

The leader of the New World Order will be the world leader referred to in Scripture as the Beast, the Antichrist and the “man of lawlessness.” He will speak against the Most High and oppress His saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time [3 ½ years] (Daniel 7:25).

He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. (Daniel 8:24-25).

With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him (Daniel 11:32).

The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of [God’s] wrath is completed, (Daniel 11:36)

The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [Temple]. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed (Daniel 9:26b).

In order for the Antichrist to put an end to the practice of sacrifice and offering, the temple will first need to be rebuilt. There is no Jewish temple nor is there practiced animal sacrifice and offering in Jerusalem. Since 70 AD when the Roman general Titus destroyed Jerusalem and the temple the Jewish people have had no temple. Therefore, since there is no place for the Jewish sacrifice and offering today, the temple will need to be rebuilt before this prophecy can be fulfilled.

I believe that items required for Temple Worship are in place. Years ago I read about a Texan who was breeding a red heifer and was almost producing heifers without a single blemish. He shipped breeding stock to Israel. The way Israelis tracked down Nazis, you can bet they have been tracking down the Ark of the Covenant. I know Priests have been prepared to resume Temple worship. So here is how I see it, on the day the treaty is signed, Israel will begin rebuilding he Temple and construction won’t take long.

The “abomination that causes desolation” is the name given to the event that takes place when the Antichrist sets himself up to be God in the temple of God. Paul also described what happens during the abomination that causes desolation in his second letter to the Thessalonians.

Recalling what Jesus told us in the Olivet Discourse, we know that immediately after the abomination that causes desolation there will be a time of persecution, which Jesus called the Great Tribulation. We also know from Daniel’s prophecy and numerous others in Scripture that the duration between the abomination that causes desolation and the end of the Great Tribulation will be “a time, times and half a time” or 3 ½ years.

There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people–everyone whose name is found written in the book–will be delivered. (Daniel 12:1).

As recorded in Luke 21, Jesus’ Disciples asked about His return: 7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?” 8 He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. 9 When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” 10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. 12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 This will result in your being witnesses to them. 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17 All men will hate you because of me. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 By standing firm you will gain life. 20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. 25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” 29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35 For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

You have heard Daniel and Jesus, what can I say? God bless and protect you.

NEW WORLD ORDER (Part 1)

July 14, 2014

 

~~~~~~~NWO

I can put words on paper but I can’t make you read. The mere mention of a phrase is enough to make people’s brains slam shut and their eyes roll back into their skulls. Maybe that’s why it is written in Latin on the reverse of the dollar bill, “Novus Ordo Seclorum.” I wish I could give you a sound bite or talking point but this is way too deep and intertwined for that. Stick with me, you won’t regret it.

My fellow Americans, call it what you wish, New World Order, One World Government or Novus Ordo Seclorum, it is going to happen and we cannot stop it. Maybe we can slow it down a little but an extremely powerful and influential group of genetically-related individuals (at least at the highest echelons) which include many of the world’s wealthiest people, top political leaders, and corporate elites, as well as members of the so-called Black Nobility of Europe dominated by the British Crown whose goal is to create a One World Government that is obedient to their agenda. Their intention is to effect complete and total control over every human being on the planet and to dramatically reduce the world’s population by 5.5 Billion people. While the name New World Order is a term frequently used today when referring to this group, it’s more useful to identify the principal organizations, institutions, and individuals who make up this vast interlocking spiderweb of elite conspirators.

The Idea of a New World Order (NWO) is embraced by more people in America than you can imagine. Before you jump on the bandwagon, let me give you some facts that will make you think twice: There will be no middle class, only rulers and their servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist. The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited. Your wealth will be worthless because you cannot buy or sell unless you have what the Bible calls, “the mark of the beast.” In Biblical terms, “Beast” means “Government.”

Yes, the Bible indicates that One World Government under the Antichrist will exist during the end times. Who better to enlighten us but Daniel himself. Jesus quoted Daniel, King Darius trusted Daniel but was tricked into a decree that placed Daniel in the lions’ den. In the end, God protected him and restored Daniel to favor under Darius and the Persian King who followed him, King Cyrus. Daniel wrote:
“Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces.” Daniel 7:23

Daniel 8:23: “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

“Understanding Dark Sentences” is descriptive of the secret organizations and phrases like the New World Order and fundimental transformation. All of the things that stand in the way of the NWO are crumbling including Patriotism, Freedom of Religion, gun ownership, the Constitution, National Security, Border Security, respect for laws, education choice, traditional values and a strong military that supports the people. If you get your news from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and NPR you are unaware of any of this.

Walter Cronkite, the late CBS anchorman and broadcast icon often referred to as “the most trusted man in America,” Made this statement in a 1999 speech to the World Federalist Association, one of the oldest and foremost organizations promoting world government:

“It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace. To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order…. We cannot defer this responsibility to posterity. Democracy, civilization itself, is at stake. Within the next few years we must change the basic structure of our global community from the present anarchic system of war … to a new system governed by a democratic U.N. federation.”

The reason it was imperitive that Barack Obama be reelected at all costs is because the world has an important place for him in the New World Order. It was so important that thousands and thousands of dead people, illegal aliens and phantom voters flocked to the polls in his support. Sometimes there were more voters than registered voters and 100% of them voted for President Obama. Nobody raised an eyebrow, as usual.

We must go back to the early 1900s and Cecil Rhodes, who advocated that the British Empire and the United States should jointly impose a Federal World Government to bring about lasting world “peace”. Yes, Rhodes founded the Rhodes Scholarship as a global brotherhood of future leaders.

Apart from smoking dope (and not inhaling) as a Rhodes Scholar, Clinton shared a
house at 46 Leckford Road with Frank Aller, Strobe Talbot and David Satter. They did what they could to oppose the Vietnam War in those days. Clinton spoke of helping arrange a ‘teach-in’ in London. He also, according to another contemporary, Richard McSorley, helped to organise a demonstration outside the US embassy.

Frank Aller was another draft dodger like clinton. Clinton called Frank “one of the bravest, best men I know,” in his famous letter to an R.O.T.C. director in Arkansas explaining why he had given up his own thoughts of resistance to safeguard his “political viability.”

Over winter vacation of 1969-1970, Clinton toured Moscow, where he had been preceded by his roommate Strobe Talbott. Talbott was then translating the memoirs of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, which had been leaked to him by Victor Louis, a KGB disinformation agent and talent spotter. Frank Aller was doing similar work on the unpublished notes of Edgar Snow, an American journalist believed to be the first Western journalist to interview Mao Zedong.

Strobe Talbott became Deputy Secretary of State for President Clinton, and later president of the very influential think tank, the Brookings Institution, in Washington, D.C. In a highly acclaimed essay published in Time Magazine in 1992, entitled “The Birth of the Global Nation,” Talbott declared:

“In 1795 Kant advocated a peaceful league of democracies. But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government… Federalism has already proved the most successful of all political experiments, and organizations like the World Federalist Association have for decades advocated it as the basis for global government.”

David Satter became the Moscow correspondent of the Financial Times of London. He then became a special correspondent on Soviet affairs of The Wall Street Journal. He is currently a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and a fellow of the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. He has been a research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and a visiting professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In December 2013 the Russian government expelled him from the country with the official reason being that he was “guilty of multiple gross violations of Russian migration law.”

Who knows what Frank Aller would have become but Frank committed suicide in 1971 — in despair, his friends say, over a decision that had ruined his life.

“I hoped that the spectacle of young men refusing to fight would somehow ‘move the conscience of America’ ” is how Aller explained himself in a Nov. 5, 1970, letter to a friend in New York City. Clinton had left Oxford for Yale Law School. Aller had stayed in England, a fugitive from justice. “The problem is that,” he wrote, “while the exile goes on and on and on, the effect does not.”

Clearly, these young men were not reading the Bible or the Federalist Papers at Oxford. “We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans…” Bill Clinton was quoted as saying. (USA TODAY, 11 March 1993, page 2A)

Those who hated the Vietnam War so much like Clinton, Aller and John Kerry did not hate it enough to become Republicans. Instead they clung to the party that got us into the Vietnam War and kept us in the War while preventing us from winning the War.

Lionel Curtis founded the Rhodes-Milner Round Table Groups in 1909, which led to the establishment of the British-based Royal Institute for International Affairs in 1919 and the U.S.-based Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in 1921. Edward Mandell House founded the CFR. Colonel House as he was called, was not only President Woodrow Wilson’s most prominent aide, he also actually dominated the President. Woodrow Wilson referred to House as “my alter ego” (my other self), and it is totally accurate to say that House, not Wilson, was the most powerful individual in our nation during the Wilson Administration, from 1913 until 1921. Colonel House never served in the military. Woodrow Wilson was a leader of the Progressive Movement, he served as President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and was Governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913. He led his Democratic Party to win control of both the White House and Congress for the first time since Grover Cleveland’s victory in 1892.

I should mention here that presidents seem to need someone like Colonel House just as the Romanovs needed Grigori Rasputin. Barack Obama’s Rasputin is Valerie Jarrett, the Iranian born Senior Advisor to the President. The man who pulled George Bush’s strings was Karl Rove who had an overpowering presence and influence. Rove is a big government Republican who would eliminate the Tea Party and other small government constitutionalists in GOP primaries because of alleged fears that they lose general elections. In spite of Rove’s best efforts along with Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry, small government constitutionalist Ted Cruz did win the general election. The House Majority Leader also learned that Rove’s work does not guaranty success.

Today, the CFR is considered to be the nation’s most influential foreign-policy think tank. Its membership has included senior politicians, more than a dozen Secretaries of State, CIA directors, bankers, lawyers, professors, and senior media figures. The CFR regularly convenes meetings at which government officials, global business leaders and prominent members of the intelligence/foreign-policy community discuss major international issues. The council also publishes the bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs, and runs a think tank called the David Rockefeller Studies Program, which influences foreign policy by making recommendations to the presidential administration and diplomatic community, testifying before Congress, interacting with the media, and authoring books, reports, articles, and op-eds on foreign policy issues.

“The ultimate aim of the CFR is to create a one-world socialist system, and to make the US an official part of it.” ~Dan Smoot, former member of FBI headquarters staff

I want you to read some quotes so you can get beyond the idea that all this is just some wacky conspirency theory:

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson

* * *

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”– U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a letter written Nov. 21, 1933 to Colonel E. Mandell House

* * *

“Fifty men have run America, and that’s a high figure.”
Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, in the July 26th, l936 issue of The New York Times

***

“From the days of Sparticus, Weishaupt, Karl Marx, Trotski, belacoon, Rosa Luxenberg and
Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century. And now at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the under- world of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”–Winston Churchill to the London press in 1922

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise their power from behind the
scenes.”– Justice Felix Frankfurter, U.S. Supreme Court

“I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election….It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States!” –George W. Malone, U.S. Senator (Nevada), speaking before Congress in 1957.

“We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans…”
Bill Clinton (USA TODAY, 11 March 1993, page 2A)

“After their recent exposures in Bavaria, The Illuminati had been driven even further underground, taking on a variety of names, such as The French Revolutionary Club. As radicals flocked into these new varieties of Illuminism, a larger meeting hall was needed. The Hall of the Jacobins Convent was leased, and it was from this hall that they eventually derived their new name, the Jacobin Club. The Jacobin Club met in secret and eventually boasted of having some of the best-educated and most influential men in France among its 1,300 members. The Jacobins vowed to destroy the monarchy, as well as other existing institutions, and sought to establish what they called a ‘New World Order’, or ‘Universal Republic’.”

“The famous magician and occultist, Cagliostro, was initiated into the Illuminati in 1783. Many years later, he told Catholic priests about his initiation. The initiation took place in an underground room near Frankfort, Germany.”
– William T. Still, New World Order
1700’s

“The old world order changed when this war-storm broke. The old international order passed away as suddenly, as unexpectedly, and as completely as if it had been wiped out by a gigantic flood, by a great tempest, or by a volcanic eruption. The old world order died with the setting of that day’s sun and a new world order is being born while I speak, with birth-pangs so terrible that it seems almost incredible that life could come out of such fearful suffering and such overwhelming sorrow.” — Nicholas Murray Butler, in an address delivered before the Union League of Philadelphia, Nov. 27, 1915

“The peace conference has assembled. It will make the most momentous decisions in history, and upon these decisions will rest the stability of the new world order and the future peace of the world.” — M. C. Alexander, Executive Secretary of the American Association for International Conciliation, in a subscription letter for the periodical International Conciliation (1919)

“If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands.”
Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, president of the World Federation of Education Associations (August 1927), quoted in the book “International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World” (1931)

* * *

“… when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”
H. G. Wells, in his book entitled “The New World Order” (1939)

— excerpt from article entitled “New World Order Pledged to Jews,” in the New York Times
(October 1940)

… “IN ORDER to achieve the final aim – which is one world, and not two hostile worlds – such a partial world Government must never act as an alliance against the rest of the world. The only real step toward world government is world Government itself.”
Open Letter to the General Assembly of the United Nations, 1947

“The United Nations, ‘has not been able–nor can it be able–to shape a new world order which events so compellingly demand … The new world order that will answer economic, military, and political problems urgently requires, I believe, that the United States take the leadership among all free peoples to make the underlying concepts and aspirations of national sovereignty truly meaningful through the federal approach.'”

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.”
David Rockefeller

“If instant world government, Charter review, and a greatly strengthened International Court do not provide the answers, what hope for progress is there? The answer will not satisfy those who seek simple solutions to complex problems, but it comes down essentially to this: The hope for the foreseeable lies, not in building up a few ambitious central institutions of universal membership and general jurisdiction as was envisaged at the end of the last war, but rather in the much more decentralized, disorderly and pragmatic process of inventing or adapting institutions of limited jurisdiction and selected membership to deal with specific problems on a case-by-case basis … In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”
Richard N. Gardner, in Foreign Affairs (April 1974)

“My country’s history, Mr. President, tells us that it is possible to fashion unity while cherishing diversity, that common action is possible despite the variety of races, interests, and beliefs we see here in this chamber. Progress and peace and justice are attainable. So we say to all peoples and governments: Let us fashion together a new world order.”

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or *promulgated* [emphasis mine], that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this *scenario*, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

June 22, 1993 In case there is any doubt about whether President Clinton(CFR) supports world government, on this date he signs a letter to the World Federalist Association congratulating Strobe Talbott(CFR) on receiving the WFA’s first “Norman Cousins Global Governance Award.” The WFA is a leading force for world federal government. Clinton’s letter states: “Norman Cousins worked for world peace and world government…Strobe Talbott’s lifetime achievements as a voice for global harmony have earned him this recognition….He will be a worthy recipient of the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award. Best wishes….for future success.”

“There is a chance for the President of the United States to use this (9-11) disaster to carry out … a new world order.” Gary Hart, at a televised meting organized by the CFR in Washington, D.C. Sept 14. 2001

I’m not making this stuff up. We have yet to scratch the surface of this demonic plan that will lead to death and destruction of those lemmings who so fervently support it and the rest of us who don’t. Even well meaning conservatives are too easily distracted by a series of scandals and calamities while the one-worlders continue making hay 24/7. They keep their eyes on the prize while conservatives quibble with each other about grammar or who is more conservative. The mainstream media supports the NWO hook, line and sinker. Don’t expect them to expose the plan. In NWO Part 2, I will get into the United Nations Venezuela Conference where they passed Agenda 21 which the elder President Bush publicly gave his support to. It refered to something called “Sustainable Development” can that be a dark sentence mentioned by Daniel?

A DE-AMERICANIZED WORLD

July 8, 2014

 

~~~~~world

Liu Chang wrote this for China’s official news agency Xinhua, “It is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanized world.” I can see why the world is considering that, with the recent budget crisis, debt ceiling crisis and the credit rating downgrades, United States finances certainly look shaky to me. It also looks like the Obama Regime is doing everything possible to facilitate a de-Americanized world.

Right now the dollar is the world reserve currency, so what is a reserve currency? Countries all over the world hold financial reserves, in bonds or money market instruments denominated in some other currency. They also hold gold and Special Drawing Rights issued by the International Monetary Fund. The reserves protect the country’s currency against speculative outflows. The Asian Financial Crisis of 1997-98 taught many countries the value of having large reserves of foreign currencies. Most countries are now pretty heavily invested in their foreign exchange reserves.

The U.S. dollar is the most common currency for international reserves, for many reasons. First, because of the size of our economy, there are plenty of dollar-denominated securities available. The market for United States Treasury securities is liquid and deep. “Liquid” means that the securities can be sold quickly. “Deep” means that a substantial amount can be bought or sold without affecting the price too much. These are desirable features of a foreign reserve currency. The Euro ranks second right now and the Japanese Yen and British pounds sterling following. A number of other currencies are used in small amounts.

The very volume of dollars in the world has given many people a conviction that the currency is worthless and doomed to lose its status as a global reserve currency. That describes me based on our national debt and unfunded requirements which amount to over two million dollars per family.

As of last year there was $1.2 trillion in circulation. Can you guess the bill that is in greatest supply? Not the $1, about 77% of the total circulation is the $100 bill. Most of those hundreds—about two-thirds of them—are held outside the United States. You probably don’t know that the most valuable Confederate Bills are the $1 Notes because they are the rarest. Today you can buy Zimbabwe 500 trillion dollar notes but not a single 1 dollar note. Are you getting the picture?

Can you imagine a U.S. Navy ship arriving in a foreign port unable to purchase fuel because the country refused to accept U.S. Dollars? Can you think of anything our government or the Federal Reserve has done favorable to our Dollar? Printing tons of Dollars might prop up our House of Cards for a few years, but other countries are not stupid. How many times can the Stock Market crash before it stays crashed?

If I accomplish nothing else in this blog, I want you to know of the very real possibility that the dollar will crash. You and I have no control other than to get out of the way. Those that we have entrusted with the job of reporting this collapse to us are hiding the truth. That’s why I look for signs that indicate that the lying liars are getting ready for the collapse. One of those lying liars is the International Monetary Fund (IMF). From previous blogs you know that the IMF, UN, trilateral Commission and others are all for a One World Government. Anyway, the IMF does not want to lose money as it hands out loans to distressed countries. In the past the money was US Almighty Dollars. However, the recent loan to Ukraine was denominated in SDRs. The great thing about SDRs is that you can change the underlying assets that give it value. It’s a moving goalpost. The Special Drawing Right is whatever the IMF wants it to be, and you can bet that the borrower is never going to come out ahead in any deal with the IMF.

So what is the SDR? It is essentially a unit of value backed by a basket of currencies:
US Dollars – 41.9%
Euros – 37.4%
Japanese Yen – 9.4%
British Pounds – 11.3%
If any one of those currencies crashes, the IMF can switch that currency out for another one. That strong Dollar component can change instantly to Chinese, Russian or Swiss currency. Is this the first step by the IMF in an attempt to limit the possible damage from a US dollar collapse? It is certainly a chink in the Petrodollar system. All I am suggesting is that YOU pay attention.

Some very smart people have been talking about 2014 as the year when everything changes. The problem is that the vast majority of those changes will happen in smoke-filled back rooms, away from the public eye. You won’t see them until it’s too late to do anything about it. I don’t believe ANY of the data coming from the IMF or the US Government. I just created a chart on the IMF website showing US inflation at about 2%. When President Obama took office, gasoline was $1.89 on the East Coast, today it is $3.89. Not being a billionaire, I do my own grocery shopping and notice how food prices are going up weekly. The Stock Market keeps going up too, but on very small volume. The big boys are buying Put Options so they will flourish when the market crashes.
Warren Buffett is putting his money in hard assets such as railroads, oil and gas. When Buffett acquired BNSF Railroad he likened the railroad’s foresight to the biblical figure Noah and his Ark, “Like Noah, who foresaw early on the need for dependable transportation, we know it’s our job to plan ahead.”

U.S. banks are picking our pockets in every conceivable way. I once cashed a Wells Fargo Check in a Wells Fargo Bank and they charged me $5 because I didn’t have an account with them. The rest of that story is that I WILL NEVER HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH WELLS FARGO. One of my banks, ARVEST, decided to start charging a monthly fee for me to let them use my money. They did it while I was in the hospital and I didn’t much like the idea. The regional bank manager told me he could change my account to a free one since my balance would support it. I said, “No thanks, I no longer trust your bank.” I hope you have not forgotten that OUR government used OUR money to bail out the banks. Many local banks are now run by succeeding generations of the founders. These latter day managers would not make a wart on the founder’s behind. US banks are not all that competitive in the real world. Pay Pal sprung up while bankers were having their portraits painted. What else is about to happen will really shock them when they find out. Facebook, for example, could facilitate user-to-user payments for less money than a bank charges. There are rumors that Facebook plans to do that very thing by making it possible for people to send payments and store money via its social network. A Facebook spokesperson “declines to comment on rumors and speculation.”

The United States is no longer competitive with other countries and things are getting worse. A few states are still competitive but most become less competitive every single day. State Legislators are lobbied to spend money, not to save taxpayers’ money. Don’t think China, Russia and Saudi are not thinking about dumping the dollar. Don’t think they will warn you before they do it. Do you think the IRS, EPA, border crisis, Iraq, overregulation, highest corporate tax in the world, unions and Benghazi make the U.S. look more attractive? Do you have a plan; I doubt the Wall Street Talking Heads have a plan. If they were so smart they would not still be working. The Obama Regime has a plan and it does not include America or Americans. Read my blog, THE WORLD IS ENOUGH FOR OBAMA.

So what are people doing to prepare for the possible crash? Those who can afford it are buying as much gold and silver as they can. Others who have little extra cash are stocking up on extra essentials with a long shelf-life. Some people have fled the US, entirely. The people of Noah’s time did nothing until the door of the Ark was closed and no options were available to them.

In LUKE 21, Jesus speaks about the end times and then says this: 32 “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35 For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”

May God bless and keep you,
Gene
