American Racism: Depart from Me, Ye that Work Iniquity

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Which of you, if your son asked for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, through you are evil, know how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So, in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and, in your name, perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” (Matthew 7: 1-23)

We are warned about those who will come in the name of our Lord to proclaim truth, who will be misleading the masses. Many will be deceived by these religious leaders and will be not be allowed entrance into the eternal kingdom due to their lack of knowledge.

All over the world we have chaos ensuing. People are witnessing the destruction of their entire life’s work while those on the opposite spectrum fight for survival within a corrupt system. Neither side is truly free as if we were free there would be no reason for this violence; but that is just not how America is.

The divisive history of the United States is well documented, but the portion left out is the current use of the system to control those of the minority community. It is no secret that the victors write history, while the same can be true with those who control a country’s money. Our world is witnessing the consolidation of wealth within the 1% that rivals the wildest imagination. The hurt that the middle class is now feeling is the same hurt that the black community has felt since the inception of this country.

Every step of the way, the black community was presented with roadblocks that limited success and restricted growth of generational wealth. The ignorance of the modern white community has allowed for the perception that we all have the same opportunities and as long as we all work hard, we will get ahead. That cannot be true in a society that has manipulated the wealth concentration to funnel the majority of the country’s assets into a select few. Those few then use their massive wealth to influence their impact on society, only helping those within the same socio-economic condition. In other words, all the money and property has been funneled to the top portion of the population who then use that money to create the laws that allow them to say in power. Only those within the same sect of society will benefit, as those with the power, choose who they will share their wealth with.

Its not surprising that the black community would feel hated and abused by this type of society, especially when we consider that those in power, those who have generational wealth, received that same power and money from their decedents who used racial motives to benefit from the abuse of the black community. This is no secret when you look at the conduct of the forefathers of the two most recent Republican Presidents. Both of which have actions conducted by their forefathers that would be considered racist by today’s standards.

This does not mean that the times were different, and things have changed now. This only means that racism has been deeply entranced in our society and the white community is only now allowing itself to see the pain and hurt we have caused.

We cannot change the past, but we also don’t need to support those who took advantage of a system they created and manipulated. We can no longer stand by idle while our brothers and sister in Christ are hurting. Regardless of what side of the political spectrum we stand, we all have a moral obligation to help those who are in need.

We have watched the black community stand by and hope and pray that their country would allow the same freedoms to them that was promised to all. Those hopes have never been realized and now our great country must face the consequences of our actions. We created this mess and we will be destroyed by this mess. If we had only lived by the Christian standard that we preached about every week. If we had only showed compassion to those we had done wrong to. If we had only showed love instead of hate, we would not be witnessing the fall of our great nation.

May love and kindness conquer all during this dark and trying time.

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Its does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now, we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13: 1-13)

Please Forgive Me For My Honesty

I am starting to understand how the prophets of old could look upon their society and weep about how the people were acting and how they believed. When looking upon our own society it is easy to become clouded about the sugar coating being placed upon everything and how so many are being told what they want to hear. We are being told everything that we want is at our finger tips and that the road to salvation is easy and through that salvation we will escape any trials that will unfold upon the earth.

Its understandable that many want to believe this message, that we all want to have the easy road to salvation and that our trials will be limited through faith. Unfortunately, this is not what we are told in Scripture. Salvation is the road less taken and entails that we carry our cross every day. That we forsake our being and that we feel for our fellow man more than ourselves. This is easy to say and easy to preach but very few within our society are doing this. I am as guilty as everyone else. We must understand that none of us have achieved this level of personal character and if anyone tells you they have, they are lying to you. We are flawed beings and will be flawed until we receive our new bodies through the salvation of our Creator.

My heart aches at my own trials and tribulations and my own failures but it also aches when I look upon my fellow man. I see the actions of all those around me, proclaiming Christians included, and see nothing but hypocrisy. Everyone is willing to point out the failures of those around them, but they are not willing to look at themselves. Jesus once said that we must pull the plank from our own eye before trying to pull the splinter from someone else’s eye. We, as a society, are failing at this. We have become so bitter and evil that we condemn anyone who may say something that we disagree with. We refuse to study the Word of God to find answers and rely upon what we have been taught. How do you tell someone that what they have been taught since childhood is wrong and that they are on the path of destruction? How can anyone get through to someone so arrogant and proud, proclaiming the gospel, when they have no real clue about the teachings of God?

My heart aches. I cry out to everyone that I can to see what is happening to our world and our Church. I beg for those to listen and instead those same individuals proclaim heresy. Again, how can anyone get through to someone who is unwilling to challenge their faith to determine what they have been taught is true? This task feels like one that is unwinnable, but my faith tells me it must be a task that is challenged.

We must proclaim the truth no matter what forces come upon us. We must continue to fight until the fight has either been won or the race has been finished. We must honor those who have come before us and have done the exact same thing for their generation.

I feel what the prophets of old felt. I am understanding their heart and how they could cry out to God about what their civilization was doing. I will make sure I honor their memory and do the same for my people during the time of our trial.

Thank you for listening and please forgive me for my honesty.

Has the Rise of Donald Trump Initiated the Opening of the Seven Seals of Revelation?

“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto him over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars from heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and the rocks of the mountains;

And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6: 1-17)

We live in an interesting quadrium as many believe that we are living in the End Times, but those same individuals will not address the association between the rise of President Trump and his prophetic impact. It’s easy for Christians to see that the world has become unlawful and unjust but it’s very difficult to see those same traits within our President.

We can debate all day about who is telling the truth about President Trump’s conduct prior to becoming President of the United States or we can also dismiss these actions by stating that he has become a born-again believer and his actions don’t demonstrate the man he is today. The truth is that these debates don’t matter. Who cares if President Trump says that he is a Christian or if he states that he worships God if his actions don’t demonstrate these same attributes. Have we as a society gone so far away from morality that we provide excuses for anyone who tells our itching ears what we want to hear? Have we forgotten that we have been warned to watch for a dynamic leader who will deceive the whole world?

The one fact that no one can debate is that since the inauguration of Donald Trump, the entire world has been shaken. Our heads have been spinning and no one knows what is real. We are even having debates about the meaning of “Truth” and we have been told that truth is subjective. Our fabric of understanding has been rocked so badly that the allies of the United States are reconsidering their alliance, while the average American must debate if our President is racist or not. Open your eyes!! How can we be so naïve about what is happening to our world and our society? How can we stand by and express our Christian alliance to a man who has proven his Christian principles are skewed?

Just take a true hard look at the first four seals of the Apocalypse spoken about in Revelation, and ask yourself if these events are unfolding? When did it seem like these events accelerated? It’s easy to see the downward spiral of our society started with the election of Donald Trump and since then the world has witnessed the loss of peace, economic instability, and we are currently on the verge of World War 3 in the Middle East.  This is not a stretch of the truth, this is only an honest depiction of our world.

We can choose to defend the President of the United States and state that he did not cause these events to unfold and that this is all part of God’s plan. We can make any excuse stating that the United States is being/or will be blessed for our association to Israel. We can say anything we want but we must be true to what Scripture tell us? It is true that a promise was given to Abraham that anyone who blesses Israel will be blessed and anyone who curses Israel will be cursed, (Genesis 12:3) but we must also understand that during the time of the end, all shall be judged, and all shall be required to repent. (2 Corinthians 5:10) Those same Christians that are stating that American will be blessed are stating that all Christians will be Raptured prior to any Tribulation. Considering even Jesus stated that His return would be at the end of the Tribulation, (Matthew 24: 29-30) this is only wishful thinking. We were warned about deceitful teachers that would tell the masses what they want to hear (2 Timothy 4: 3-4) and this is exactly what is happening!

Be on guard as we can see the deception around us is very strong. Too many have chosen their side and no longer listen to sound doctrine. They only listen to teachers who tell them what they want to hear and refuse to acknowledge that they have not studied the Word like they should have. Very few are willing to dig deep within Scripture to find the answers and will listen to anyone who tells them the next prophetic word or event. We as Christians have lost our way and we are about to witness the repercussions for our lack of understanding. (Hosea 4: 6)

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” (2 Thessalonians 2: 1-17)

Mueller Report, 2020 Election and the End of the Timeline

The Election of President Donald Trump has brought polarization to the United States of America and the entire World. We are witnessing a division within this great nation that has not been witnessed since the Civil War fought between the North and South. Listening to the political leaders from both political parties shows the extent of this hatred that is building between the two parties that dominate our land.

This division can also be seen all over the world. There can be a debate about the extent of blame that can be given to the President of the United States, but the facts that can be seen are that we are witnessing riots and chaos on a global scale that most have never dreamed possible.  France has been in a state of constant riot for over 18 weeks now, Venezuela has been without power for over 10 days while its citizens have resorted to drinking sewage, and Christian persecution within the Middle East, Asia and Africa are at an unprecedented scale. These items are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the issues facing our world today.

Unfortunately, this division is only going to get worse and bring about anger present within people all over the world. The violence spreading is only being made more abundant with the influence of the great world religions, converging in a way that only prophecy could have foretold.

Considering the Israeli world has just witness the Festival of Ester (also known as Purim), and the events that unfolded during this holiday, the world can see that things are going to get more interesting as the days continue.

The news cycle on Purim started with a Tweet from the President of the United States indicating that the Trump administration intends on supporting Israel’s claim to the Golan Heights. This not only happened on a Jewish Holiday where both the Bible Code and Jewish Rabbis have stated that their messiah would appear, but is also a little over a week after Syria stated they would invade Israel if they did not return the Golan Heights to their possession. The Trump administration continued with officially removing documentation stating that the Golan Heights is occupied by Israel and then officially recognized Israel possession of the Golan Heights.  Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, stated that this is a Purim Miracle and the Secretary State of the United States, Mike Pompeo, stated that he believes God placed President Trump in office to be the Savior of the Israeli people.  Both of these bold statements are leading up the release of Trump’s “Deal of the Century”, that will bring Peace to the land of Israel.

Anyone that understands Biblical Prophecy has to acknowledge that these events and words that are spoken, demonstrate the unfolding of prophecies that have been spoken thousands of years ago. Even the development of a possible invasion of Syria, Iran, Turkey and Russia, into the land of Israel, is following Bible Prophecy perfectly.

Still, Christian leaders are hailing President Trump as the leader of their earthly causes and the one that will bring about great prosperity to the American people.  The blindness present within the Christian Church is staggering. Understanding this too is the fulfillment of prophecy helps bring condolences to those with eyes to see but demonstrates the true darkness that our world possesses.

President Donald Trump has been embattled from the day that he entered office. There has been an investigation into allegations that his administration participated in cohesion with Russian government to manipulate the 2016 Presidential Election.  This investigation has brought almost every American and World citizen into the political arena as we all anticipate to find the truth of what really happened.  Speculation has led to a full out conspiracy by the Trump Administration to a Deep State that works behind the scenes running everything in our country.  We have all waited patiently for the release of the Robert Mueller Report that indicates his findings about this investigation.

This report was also released during Purim, bringing additional importance to this holiday and the end of the Jewish Jubilee year.  Not only was this report released during the last Jewish holiday (their only 3-day holiday) but many state that it was also at the end of the 70th Jubilee of the Jewish people.

At this time, the report’s findings have not been released and there is debate if the report will be released in its entirety. What we do know is that no further indictments have been recommended by the Mueller team.  The talking heads on the news networks are indicating that the investigation was a witch-hunt to discredit the President of the United States, but a more logical explanation may be the truth. The United States of America has never been in this situation before and never in its history has the government had to contemplate the criminal indictment or arrest of a President while he is still in office. No-one knows if this is allowed under the Constitution or if the President must fulfill his term in office prior to being arrested.

Once the Mueller Report is released, the people of the United States will be divided more as we try to decide what we must do.  Considering Congress cannot agree upon anything, we may have to look at what other countries have done or are doing when faced with a similar situation.

As all things are coming to pass, it can only be by design that this exact situation is being faced by another country in the World. This country has decided to have a rescheduled election that will occur on April 9th 2019.  This country is Israel and the political leader that has been indicted on corruption charges is their Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Prime Minister of Israel has been under investigation, along with his wife, for corruption and bribery charges and the Israeli government has officially indicted him for these charges.  The only problem is that Benjamin Netanyahu is their current Prime Minister and they cannot officially arrest him while he is still in office. That is why this upcoming election on April 9th is so important.  If Benjamin Netanyahu is reelected (and it appears he will be) then he will continue to stay in power, shaping Israeli policy for the foreseeable future.

This seems to be the plan as President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are very close allies. This can be evident upon the remarks given by both parties when talking about each other. This alliance will only become stronger when Netanyahu escapes prison by being reelected and then returns the favor to President Trump.

The first act that will be completed once the Israeli election is over, has already been telegraphed to the world.   We have been hearing for the last couple years about the “Deal of the Century” that will bring peace to Israel and Palestine.  We have also heard most recently that this peace deal will be released directly after the Israeli election. Bringing Peace to the land of Israel will not only solidify President Trump’s Christian base but it will enrage the Arab world, possibly bringing upon the Gog Magog war talked about in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.

The election of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would also set president for what the United States should do in respect to the arrest of a President who is still in office. We know this will be a matter of discussion as President Trump obstructed the Mueller investigation through Twitter on numerous occasions. This alone would be enough to indict President Trump on Obstruction of Justice.  Considering the Israeli Prime Minister will not be arrested until his terms in office are over, we can see that this logic may be used in respect to President of the United States.

One can only imagine the chaos this will cause within the free world as both parties become emboldened about the correct course of action. Neither side will be willing to back down or to show that the other side is correct on the most pivotal moment our country has ever seen. The next couple years will be a time of great turmoil as our society rips itself apart a piece at a time.

This makes all eyes look forward to the timeframe of when the next Presidential election will be held. That date will be November 3rd 2020. Personally, this date brought great significance as my previously documented prophetic timeline comes to an end of October 30th 2020.  This timeline has brought significance to all of the recent Blood and Super Moons as well as Second Anniversary of Trump’s Inauguration and the Jewish holiday of Purim.

When inspecting this upcoming date another event should bring chills to our core.  The implementation of the Real ID Act occurs on October 1st 2020.  Considering the biometric data requirement present within the Real ID Act, we all must watch this National ID Card for any indication that it will bring about the prophetic Mark of the Beast.

We are all searching for answers and we all want to believe that the world will become a better place for all of humanity, but we also must watch for the possibility of the opposite. From the Christian perspective when looking through the lens of prophecy, we know that the darkness that will befall mankind is something none of us want to witness.

The one thing that is certain within this life is that none of us get out alive.   We all will meet our maker, face to face, and will have to make an account for the things we have done in this life.  None of us are worthy to receive an exemption for our sins and none of us can provide a case as to why we deserve salvation. We are all sinners and we all deserve to pay for the crime of sin, which is death.  Only by asking for salvation can we be granted the gift our God wishes all of us to have. We must remain strong and hold on to our Savior Jesus Christ as we are promised that all who call on his name shall be saved.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10: 9-13)

You Foolish False Prophets, What Are You Doing?!?!

The disturbance in my soul watching the so-called prophets of God talk about Bible prophecy is beyond what I can measure. I watch the talking heads say prophecies that have nothing to do with the prophetic word and call them their own.  They state that these are revelations to them from God and that we are to follow them and their teachings.  Do you even read the Scripture or do you just speak whatever you think the world wants to hear?  Do you actually have an understanding of what prophecy is or just want to make it fit your narrative?

The most disturbing is that the United States will lead the world into the light and that God will use the United States to bring about the Millennium reign? Where in Scripture does it state that President Donald Trump will usher in a time of great harvest for the American Empire? Where do you find such deceitful words? They do not exist! You are talking and prophesying in God’s name to bring about your own notoriety and lust for success!  You are the false prophets that Jesus warned us about and we are instructed to not follow you.  Why do you intend on making up such false remarks and state that they are Biblical?  You are foolish to think that your deeds will be seen as righteous when the time comes!

I have seen many I believed understood the prophetic word become distracted with these false teachings and their message has become diluted with false words. You have lost your ability to see!  Is your success blinding you to the point that you no longer have the ability to understand the words of God?  Why do you feel that you are being led by the Holy Spirit and can add to Scripture when we are specifically warned not to do so?  You are being foolish!

I beg you to change your ways. Stop promoting companies that are trying to make money on your message! Stop trying to add to your “prophetic visions” when they have no backing in Scripture!  You are leading many astray and they are watching for events that will not happen.  Scripture never stated that a worldly power would bring about the millennial reign. Scripture never stated that there would be a country that is blessed during the Second coming. No! Stop it! You are being deceitful and are creating the foolish virgin!!

God specifically stated that ALL would be under His judgment and ALL would be subject to the trials of the day. We are told about the spiritual gifts that will be poured out upon mankind but these gifts are to be used according to His Word and not to add to it.  You are doing this for your own financial gain and notoriety.  This is a warning as the world will see your falsehood when your “prophecies” do not come true! Your followers will ask why they are being tormented and they will look to you as you are the reason for their lack of understanding.  Do you want this on your head? Do you truly want to live eternity knowing that you were the reason that many are living in torment with you?  All because of worldly wealth and status?  You are foolish and I beg you to stop!! Please stop as you are making it very hard for others to see what the Truth is and many will not be able to understand His Word because of you and your message!!

Romans 13: For God or Country

“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soup. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years. So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me, says the Lord Almighty. I the Lord do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed.” (Malachi 3: 1-6)

The world is witnessing a new weapon against countries of power. This weapon has been spreading across the Middle East and threatens the United States of America after decimating Europe and Africa. Our history books talk about atrocities against mankind from cruel and evil leaders but the destruction we are witnessing is beyond comprehension. The weapon of human suffering combined with massive civilian migration is engulfing our world at a staggering rate.

Anyone who has being watching the news coming out of Europe can see the Syria migrant crisis has rocked the very foundation of the European Union. Countries are fighting among themselves about accepting migrants and seeing the fabric of their culture being ripped apart. Numerous countries have closed their borders and now there is discussion about creating migrant centers to hold these downtrodden individuals. This crisis is engulfing the European economic system and there is discussion by Italy and Greece of abandoning the Euro and moving away from a unified governing system. Little do the citizens understand that this is by design, this is an act of war by an evil power that is rising up across the world.

We are seeing this power rise up all across the globe from Africa and South America. World leaders are trying to crack down against countries, according to the standards and mandates associated to United Nations Human Right Council, but those in power are not worried about a governing body that has no true authority. These laws are just guidelines and the Trump administration showed their true power by its recent withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council. This lack of control is also amplified by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the country of Syria that was established in 2011. Considering the amount of human rights violations the Syrian regime is accused of and the massive refugee crisis that has ensued, we can see the extent of the usefulness of the UN Human Rights Council. Nations demonstrating this powerlessness combined with the amount of countries that are coming up on renewing their membership, (in the next 2 years) we are witnessing the world moving away from protecting civilians from the persecution of its governing bodies.

Syria is not the only country that is showing the world what is coming. The countries of Venezuela and Libya are two additional examples of how this war strategy is being used. We have heard recent stories of Italy refusing to accept migrants from Libya, causing other European countries to make preparations for their arrival. This has been an ongoing problem as the countries of the Mediterranean are being overwhelmed from the amount of refugees that are streaming onto their land.

The crisis has becoming front and center in the United States as the countries of South and Central America are coming unraveled, causing many to flee their homes. Main stream media is inundated with the stories of separated families who are seeking refuge in the United States of America.
We have to understand that this is by design. This feeling of oppression is being caused by the leaders in power and the civilians are being used as weapons against their neighboring countries. All of these countries understand that the use of economic and social tools to remove the undesirable from their countries lead to successful reelection campaigns. The reelection of Assad in Syria by a margin of 90% demonstrates the successfulness of this tactic. Egypt’ President Sisi’s reelection with 97% of the vote is another example. This oppression is all about power and staying in power.

When those in power are willing to sacrifice the lives of their subjects to maintain authority, we as a people are entering a very dark time. The United States of America is becoming polarized by the different factions and groups who have ruled over this country. It does not matter which side is chosen, we are all pawns in this master chess game.

The United States of America has always been seen as different as the rest of the world. They have not seen the horrors that the majority of the world citizens have had to endure nor have they been faced with an internal crisis that could shatter its very foundation. Americans have been blessed and because of this blessing we have become blind to what the world is truly capable of. We see ourselves as untouchable and unbeatable. Who can challenge the most powerful nation on the face of the world? Who could conquer a country with vast resources and expansive lands? As Rome has shown us, a country like this can only be defeated from within and those in power will do everything they can to remain in power, when the cracks start to form.

Those in power will do everything they can to maintain the status quo but history has shown mankind that their efforts will be useless. We are already seeing their effort to distract the subjects and to cause the masses to turn on each other. This is needed to ensure that those in power remain in power. The reasoning for this is if the servants were to understand that their unified power would overwhelm the ruling party, those in power would not stand a chance against the overwhelming masses. Divide and conquer has been a tactic used by major historical figures since the beginning of time.

We can see this tactic being used within the United States at this current time. Choose any topic and it can be seen that both sides are viciously opposed to the opposite. Violence has already erupted between the Alt-Right and Antifa on numerous occasions. This is just one example of the state of our union and this division will continue to get worse.

Another tactic we are currently witnessing is the destruction of any competition that may threaten the power structure. Unfortunately, the United States has created a political environment that has become so bureaucratic that it no longer has the ability to govern properly. The American political structure has become a system with the only goal to create a law so that representatives will be remembered in history. It does not matter what the law is as the only goal is to be named on the bill. Look at any state legislator and see how many new laws are created every session. Why must we have thousands of new laws every year just to satisfy the egos of those in power? Looking at the current political climate, with mandates being reversed, showing the uselessness of the current system. No longer are we creating laws to help the people. Laws are created to help politicians satisfy their campaign contributors. This is how the old system was controlled by those who “make the rules”.

In the Trump era we are witnessing a change in the guard. We are seeing a rise of public anger against the political stance of our elected officials. The masses are seeing their hypocrisy and are demanding to have a voice. This is leading to less efficiency within the government and stagnation within our political system. Nothing is being accomplished and if laws are passed, there is massive backlash from the populous.

Another crisis tactic scarily mimics the fall of Rome. This issue of economic hardship and inflation. Rome devalued their currency so much that at the time of the fall, their currency barely had any true silver within their coins. The weight of silver within the Roman currency can be seen as the ability for the Roman leaders to spread their currency out and “print more money”.

The entire world has been printing massive amounts of currency since the “Great Recession” in 2008. This printing has not stopped and we are witnessing hyper-inflation taking hold in many countries around the world. With the new Trump tax plan, Trillions of dollars that were trapped overseas are allowed back into the United States. This combined with the ensuing Trade War ensures that we are at the doorstep of a massive economic crisis.

This leads us to the reason the refugee crisis is such a critical issue for the United States. The final straw that brought the destruction of Rome was invasion. The use of economic hardship within South and Central America is causing an invasion of civilians that will test the very fabric of America. The United States has been a beacon of hope for the world and has always had the message of freedom to all. We have shown our prosperity to the entire globe and everyone has looked upon us as the symbol of economic prosperity. It only makes sense that under hard economic times, people would flock to the country that has it all.

American’s must also understand that the issues brewing with our neighbor to the north could also lead to conflict if tensions continue to rise. Both borders could be compromised as conflict is growing between both of our neighbors. This slow invasion against our southern border and economic strife at our northern border is by design, using innocent people as pawns in a game for billionaires. Those in power have shown that if the loss justifies the means, then it’s acceptable to have some collateral damage. That is all we are to the game makers and once we understand this we will see the entire picture.

We as Christians must be aware of what is happening around us. Too many have been misled to follow the doctrine that is being presented without evaluating the issues themselves. We are being quoted Scripture by politicians stating that good Christians do what their government tells them to do. The verse referenced is Romans chapter 13:

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.” (Romans 13: 1-5)

It can be seen how this can cause some to be confused when ruled by a leadership system that does not cherish their well-being. What are believers to do when given the decision to follow the authorities that no longer uphold the love and compassion of our savior Jesus Christ? We were instructed by Jesus to love one another and to give without expecting anything in return. The same can be true for a governing body. The leaders must uphold the moral stance of our savior or they are not following the one who has given mankind the ability to be forgiven. If this government requires our allegiance, then what must we do?

We must and will have to make this decision. We are foretold that during the time of the end, a leader will rise up and demand our allegiance. He will be given power over the world system and will overcome the saints.

“The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, ‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?’

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

Whoever has ears, let them hear. ‘If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people” (Revelation 13: 1-10)

We are clearly told that every nation and people will be given over to the authority of the beast and he will wage war against the people of God. We are also told that these followers of Christ will be conquered. The world system that is rising is not our friend nor are we immune to what is coming.

The only conclusion that can be given is that either the United States of America is the beast that is coming or it will be overcome as all nations will be given over to this leader. Many Christians believe that the United States will be the savior to the land of Israel and will be a beacon of light during this dark time. This wishful thinking is wanted by everyone within this great country but the chances are very slim that this is going to happen. Instead Scripture depicts the outcome of the greatest country the world has ever seen:

“After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.’

Then I heard another voice from heaven say: ‘Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torment and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit enthroned as a queen. I am not a widow; I will never mourn.’ Therefor in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, you mighty city of Babylon! In one hour your doom has come!’ The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore – cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.

They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out: ‘Woe! Woe to you great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such a great wealth has been brought to ruin!’

Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘was there ever a city like this great city?’ They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

‘Rejoice over her, you heavens! Rejoice, you people of God! Rejoice, apostles and prophets! For God has judged her with the judgment she imposed on you.’

Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: ‘With great violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. The music of harpists and musicians, pipers and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No worker of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again. The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s important people. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people, of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.” (Revelation 18: 1-24)

The description of the New Babylon and its economic prosperity and control mimics the United States of America. No other nation in the face of the world is the purchaser of goods on a scale that would cause the entire world to mourn its loss. The destruction that is coming upon the United States will be swift and sudden.

The question again arises as to what Christians are to do when living under an evil governing system? The only solution that can be provided has already been done by those closest to Jesus himself, his disciples:

“The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. ‘We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,’ he said. ‘Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.’ Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than human beings!’” (Acts 5: 27-29)

The Case for President Trump’s Wall and it has Nothing to do with Stopping Illegal immigration

Ever sense Donald Trump appeared on the campaign trail we have heard his message about building a wall on the southern border of the United States.  This wall would be placed between Mexico and the United States and we are told the reason for building this wall is to keep the illegal immigrants out of US.

At first, building this massive wall can be seen as a complete waste of money and a horrible idea, as this problem could be solved in a completely different way.  This has led to many a political debate but by looking at the problem differently, it can be seen that this may be the only solution to a massive problem building below our southern border.

The only way to completely understand what is going on in South and Central America is to look at what has already happened in Syria and Europe.  With the rise of Bashar al-Assad in Syria and the ensuing civil war, the civilians of Syria had no choice but to flee their homes and enter Europe.  They were seeking refuge and their misery allowed many countries in the EU to open their arms to help these individuals.  The only problem is Europe did not have the resources to help the amount of people that fled from the Middle East.  This mass exodus has led to slum towns and violence.  This violence was not one sided as immigrants were both the perpetrator and the victims of many violent attacks.  If any example is needed, just look at the countries of France and Hungary.  In France, numerous terrorist attacks lead to the country being placed under Martial Law for 2 years.  In Hungary, the government has called the refugees invaders and hate speech against believers of Islam is getting the attention of the U.N.

What is happening on our southern border is by design, just like the civil war and mass exodus into Europe was planned.  This is all part of an economic war that is being played out around the world. We have seen how the world is controlled by oil prices and when the price of oil gets too high; it enriches oil rich nations and burdens the world’s citizens.  When oil was at its peak, countries like Venezuela prospered and the people were living a higher standard of life.  This also caused the American public to suffer and the cost of living to increase drastically, almost bringing the United States economy to its knees.  When oil prices dropped, countries like Venezuela suffered where the United States stock market is now at record highs.

Hidden within this struggle lies the actual economic war.  The price of oil controls which country rises and which nation falls.  Since gaining control of the oil market, the United States has continued to place economic sanctions against any country that would benefit from high oil prices (Venezuela, Russia, and Iran). This economic war has caused Venezuela to become a country of great misery with little resources for its populous.

World leaders understand that this control of the oil market would lead to a massive shift in South and Central America.  By destabilizing Venezuela, you cause a mass exodus out of these nations and into neighboring countries like Brazil and Colombia.  Both of these countries have seen massive migration and the exportation of the Venezuelan hardship.

Colombia is in the midst of a highly contested election and the influx of over 800,000 Venezuelans has led to worries that the country will suffer just like its neighbor. President Trump’s March 2018 trip to Colombia helped ensure their cooperation with economic assistance and border security.  Since this meeting, the crisis within the Americas has only worsened.

Brazil is in the midst of a massive economic crisis that is now being amplified with a strike that is causing its entire economy to come to a stand-still. The price of fuel has skyrocketed and truckers are unable to continue transporting goods across the country, so they are striking.  This strike has led to massive confusion and disruption in Brazil and there are no signs of the crisis going away.

These are not the only two counties within Central and South America that are facing crisis.  It appears that almost every country has some kind of economic and social unrest.  This unrest is leading to many civilians to see their lives become disrupted and will soon lead to a mass exodus, just like what happened in Syria and Venezuela.  Here is a list of some of the issues that other countries in the Americas are facing:

Nicaragua: Nicaragua has been facing massive protest and uprisings since the government tried to reform the countries Social Security System.  These protests have led to many deaths and the violence is increasing.

Honduras: Honduras is going through its worse political crisis in a decade as there are allegations that President Juan Orlando Hernández rigged the recent election.  This has caused massive protest and violent clashes against civilians, leaving many dead. This has only been amplified by President Trump’s threats of regime change if the government does not cooperate with the United States.

Costa Rica: Costa Rica is seeing a substantial increase in violent deaths across the country.  This violence is spreading and causing many to fear for their lives.  There have been 247 violent deaths so far in 2018.

Guatemala: Violence in Guatemala has been escalating and the murder rate is off the charts.  In January 2018 alone, there were 469 murders across the country.  Things are only going to get harder as the Arab league has severed ties with Guatemala over their intention to build their embassy in Jerusalem. Lack of oil will lead to issues just like Brazil.

Panama: Ex-President Ricardo Martinelli is awaiting extradition back to Panama to face trial on accusations of spying charges.  He has recently blamed the US on going back on their word to protect him from these charges. In the mean-time, Panama has recently signed a free trade agreement with China. Controlling the Panama Canal is a very important asset and this alone may lead to war.

Mexico: Enough press has been made about the violence in Mexico and how the drug cartels are waging war against the civilian population.  This is just the gathering point for those who are trying to flee into the United States.  This violence will get worse until the flood gates are broken.

These are just the countries that the massive exodus will have to come thru for the refugees to get to the southern border of the United States.  Every country is going through major issues and the lives of every individual are being impacted.  It is just a matter of time before these individuals have lost all hope.  When this hope is lost, the exodus into the United States will over whelm our southern border.
