Eyes on the Prize

Prophecy Update: Eyes on the Prize: Israel and Prophecy     4/24/2020

One of the fun things about writing a blog weekly on history, prophecy, and current events is that it resembles doing a puzzle. Asking God each week to open my eyes to the puzzle of prophecy is exciting and fun. This week several pieces fell into place. Two of the most intriguing puzzle pieces are Israel and the mark of the beast. Concerning Israel, forming a government after 2 years of being in limbo provides the stability to deal with a whole host of problems. Concerning the mark of the beast, technologies are advancing that can actually fulfill the prophecy of Revelation 13.

The epicenter of all prophecy is the nation of Israel. Jeremiah 30:3 tells us about what God is going to do in the last days regarding Israel: ‘For behold, days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah.’ The LORD says, ‘I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.’ We live in the day where fulfillment of this prophecy happens daily. The last 30 years, Israel has become very rich in natural resources and business. They are the number two start up nation in the world, just behind the USA. They have so many new businesses, and business models that produce new products. They are on the cutting edge of new technologies especially in agriculture and medicine. While they advance as a culture, their enemies seek more and more ways to harm them. The rise of antisemitism the last few years has brought a whole host of condemnation.

The Atlantic had this article in January:  Seventy-Five Years After Auschwitz, Anti-Semitism Is on the Rise. “The recent eruptions of anti-Semitism in America have awakened us to a prejudice that has long resided, in quiet ways and in many forms, in this country. And the part of it that now disguises itself as anti-Zionism—hatred of the Jewish state that was established in the wake of the Holocaust as a refuge for Jews—has even seemed, to some, virtuous, a sentiment they believe puts them in humanity’s moral vanguard.” I have run into too many people who say they are not anti-Semites; they just are against the state of Israel. Using anti-Zionist hatred to mask antisemitism is not moral or virtuous.

New report says coronavirus pandemic is fueling anti-Semitism, The Hill 4/24/2020. “Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress (EJC), said Monday there has been a rise in accusations that Jewish people are behind the spread of the virus or are directly profiting from it.” As people use the coronavirus as an excuse for antisemitism, churches also have got into the anti-Semitic act.  “Danish Bible Society Removes Over 60 References To The Nation Of Israel.” To change the Bible to advance the fiction that the church replaced Israel is false.

Here is what God says to the nations and churches of our day: Jeremiah 31:10, “Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare in the coastlands afar off, and say, He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.” Each nation has an obligation to assist in what God is doing to bless Israel. Since God scattered Israel into the nations, the nations have an obligation to look after them and help them. When God who scattered them sends them home, the nations should help them. Unfortunately, we see nations threatening Israel and attacking.

One such nation that is attacking Israel is Iran. The National Interest magazine had this interesting article in January, This Is How Iran Has Threatened Israel With Destruction. “Tehran has a plethora of lethal options that could be employed against its arch-nemesis. Its proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon could conduct small ground raids into northern Israel, or even unleash some of its estimated 150,000 Iranian-supplied rockets (though at the risk of triggering a full-scale Israel-Lebanon war that could drag in Iran and perhaps the United States).” The last few weeks, Israel has attacked Iranian positions in Syria with devastating results.

As Russia tries to hold Syria together, Iran and Turkey continue to battle groups in Syria and support proxies to attack Israel. The three main groups that Iran pays to attack Israel are Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad. Not all three of these groups put together can defeat Israel. Iran knows this so that is why they are increasing their military presence in Syria, close to Israel. Israel is determined to attack the bases built by Iran. Israel is now in a better position to defend themselves.   

The deal is done: Netanyahu, Gantz ink coalition pact. By GIL HOFFMAN   APRIL 21, 2020.

“As part of the deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has served as caretaker prime minister since December 2018, will remain prime minister for another 18 months and then will be replaced in October 2021 by Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, who will serve as vice prime minister in the meantime. Netanyahu will become vice prime minister under Gantz after that – but if he leaves the Prime Minister’s Office sooner, Gantz will take over.” Israel will need to be strong for the next phase of Gods work. On July 1 of this year, Netanyahu promised that he would annex the settlements in Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian Authority promised they would go to war.

 A key word in the Bible regarding the land of Israel is “possess.” It used 100 times and the majority of times it means that God gave the land to Israel. A contrast regarding the conflict over the land exists is Psalms: 69:35 and 83:12. The contrast between Israel regathered to her land and those who wish to stop it! 69:35 says, “For God will save Zion and build the cities of Judah, that they may dwell there and possess it.” This verse is typical of the 15 times the prophets say that Israel will possess her land. 83:12 says, “Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves the pastures of God.” This verse is representative of the many times the world and nations prevent Israel from getting her land.

Israel will get more and more of her land back. Annexing the settlements in Judea and Samaria is just the start of God doing a miracle. Satan will respond to Gods work with war from Russia and Iran as described for us in Ezekiel 38-39. The next few months will be exciting to say the least. This Passover Jews from all over the land were sheltered in their homes just like the first Passover. After that Passover, 3500 years ago, they started on a journey to get their land. It is the same this Passover, the Jews are on the journey to possess the ancient cities of Bethel, Bethlehem, Shechem, and Hebron just to name a few. We should keep watching Israel because God said Israel is the apple of His eye. (Zechariah 2:8)

That brings me to my second topic: the technology used to track every human being on earth.

This story starts over 100 years ago. In the 1800’s the USA would do a census every ten years. It would take seven years to accomplish the goal because every census form filled out had to be secured and counted manually. This was a tedious task until Herman Hollerith built a machine to help count the census forms. Hollerith created a machine to count the census forms called the ‘Tabulator.’ The Tabulator used punch cards to organize the counting and it was so successful, Hollerith started the Tabulating Machine Company in 1896.

In 1910, they started selling the machines to Germany and named the German operation Dehomag. One year later, they sold Dehomag for one million dollars and they put Thomas J Watson in charge. In 1923, they named the prosperous business IBM, International Business Machines. The German subsidiary of IBM called Dehomag, the Germans used to track and kill the people in the concentration camps. In the 1933 German census, Hitler was able to begin tracking people. Key word is tracking!

Hitler met with Thomas Watson in Germany and provided the Nazis the machines and punch cards needed to track and gain information on every German. Watson invested one million dollars to the Dehomag operation. There was a Hollerith tabulating machine in every concentration camp. The camps designated a number on the punch cards: Auschwitz was 001, Buchenwald was 002, Dachau was 003 etc. The number used for Jews was 8. They even had a number for the type of death the people in the concentration camps experienced. The punch cards were supplied by IBM. The company denies this to this day, but the evidence is overwhelming. Edwin Black wrote the book “IBM and the Holocaust” which documents the collusion between Hitler and IBM. Corporations will collude with the antichrist to track and kill all of the enemies of the new world order! That leads me to Bill Gates and his desire to track every human on earth.

Bill Gates and Microsoft applied for patent 2020-060606 linking human brain to crypto payment system, Filed in NEWS ANALYZES by Martin Vrijland on 20 April 2020. “Microsoft did one on June 20, 2019 patent 2020-060606 application for linking human body to crypto payment system. It is a cryptocurrency mining system that uses human pulses such as brain waves and body heat to perform online tasks such as using search engines, chatbots and reading advertisements.” I don’t understand how this works but from what I read, it can give information to the handlers that you will not want them to have.

I have been warning people for years about the introduction of a point system based on the Chinese Credit system, it is the pre mark of the beast system. The coronavirus pandemic provides the perfect alibi for the introduction of a tracking system that will be used against the citizens. One blogger said this about the system: “In concrete terms, this means that in the first instance a score of your behavior (expressed in points) will be kept in the cloud. If you follow the rules neatly, you can take public transport or plane. If you do not follow the rules, your score will drop.”

Soooo, the same Bill Gates is behind the ID2020 initiative that wants to develop a digital ID for vaccination registration. If you combine such a digital ID quality mark with a digital passport (ID) and with patent 2020-060606, then you have enslaved people completely. Did you notice the 666 in the patent?   Consider this next story:

The coronavirus outbreak is sparking the rollout of more digital surveillance. Dave Hodges on Thursday, April 23, 2020. “The global coronavirus pandemic and the measures being implemented to stop its spread are rewiring people’s sensitivities about digital surveillance and data privacy. Governments around the world are now rolling out surveillance schemes — even some that are particularly invasive — all in the name of stopping the pandemic. According to security professionals, the coronavirus pandemic could become a watershed moment similar to 9/11. In the aftermath of the attack, governments around the world ushered in new surveillance powers in the name of protecting public safety. Jim Harper, an original member of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee, warned that once such surveillance powers are in place, they are rarely ever removed and often become repurposed as a political tool.”  

What if the government said they would eliminate all of your debt if you agreed to take the vaccine and ID2020 digital immunity passport? Remember that the IBM system used the numbers on the punch cards to brand the people. If you had 8 on your body, you were a Jew and you would be killed either by a bullet or the gas chamber. Think of what this means for the future. The ability to use your phone and technology in your body to track and control you is a reality. The Antichrist has a lot of technology to use to pull off what Revelation 13 describes as the Mark of Beast. The Mark of the Beast will be given to people who declare allegiance to the Antichrist. The mark will be put on the forehead and hand. It is about loyalty.

What we see today as tracking technology is not the mark of the beast. Why? Because none of it is used to declare your allegiance to Antichrist.  It is not the mark of the beast because we are not in the tribulation period. However, using tracking technology is being used to take away your God given rights. It is in the globalists interest to remove the sovereignty of the United States. Freedom is a threat to globalism. Government is not god—it is a form of idolatry. God warned us in I Samuel 8 about having a government that is god.

The pressure to social distance, stay home, and stay away from people, is all a form of control. How far are the people going to let this go on? Everything is inflated, hyped, and over stated. This next week, churches are going to start opening. I am praying that we are a demonstration to the world that we are not afraid, we serve a great God and savior Jesus Christ. Coming back together to worship, pray, and hear the Word of God is going to be awesome. Pray we can get back to church soon. God commanded (Hebrews 10:25) that we are not to forsake our own assembling together as is the habit of some (we are all trying to meet online, not the same), but encouraging one another and all the more as we see the day (Day of the Lord, rapture, Tribulation) drawing near. Pray with me that we can go to church soon!! Blessings everyone.

The Devil is a Liar

Prophecy Update: The Devil is a Liar              4/17/20

The group “Seawind” sang a song in the 1970’s called “The devil is a liar.” One of the ways they described Satan in the song went like this, “he promises you all the kingdoms of gold but leaves you standing alone in the cold, he’ll trick and deceive you, entice and leave you, see…. the devils going to do a number on you yeah.” Jesus spoke of Satan’s nature in an argument with some who objected to His teaching, Jesus said:

John 8:44, “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

In this prophecy update I want to do a survey over the last few months and show you how deception reigns in the media. In order to do that I am surveying magazines that I read. Beginning in December: National Review: Dec.31st edition, cover story said, “This is CNN, Hysterical, obsessive, self-important, and biased.” There were no articles on China or the virus. The Week: “Putin’s Gloating: How Russian disinformation about Ukraine is deepening the US partisan divide.” Many of the stories in both magazines are about impeaching the president. There is this gem from the Washington Post, “The case against Trump is clear the Constitution specifically lists bribery as an impeachable offense.” Commentary Magazine: They told the story concerning the National Basketball Association and the government of China. The Houston Rockets general manager tweeted his support for the pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong. “Soon after the NBA’s official Chinese broadcast partner, a company called Tencent announced that it would suspend all business with the Rockets. There followed Chinese boycott campaigns and endorsement retractions aimed at punishing the team.” As you can guess, the NBA bowed to the communist pressure and issued apology after apology. Imagine; an American sports team supporting communism over capitalism?

The Washington Examiner had this doozy from Nancy Pelosi in December, “all roads lead to Putin.” Not one article about the virus, but an overwhelming number of articles on why impeaching the President would be in the best interest of the country. January started with a bang. The Washington Times has an article called, ‘Barr: No repeats of single sourced Crossfire Hurricane.’ Crossfire Hurricane was the FBI and Obama directed probe in which they began spying on the Trump campaign in July 2016. The criminal probe into Trump was a hoax. This article, regarding China should open your eyes to the deception and lying coming from China by Bill Gertz, “Prosecutions of Huawei proceed after trade deal.” The US government is moving ahead with its pursuit of criminal charges against China’s Huawei Technologies despite the temporary truce in the trade war between Washington and Beijing.” This tech firm operates like all Chinese companies; they steal and use every dirty trick to attack the USA. Still no article on the virus. By the way, T-Mobile was awarded 4.8 million dollars in damages for Huawei theft.

Jan 14: The Washington Examiner front cover: “America Versus Iran, What’s next in the shadow War?” Not one story on the virus. Jan.21st Washington Examiner, front cover: “Obama’s Biden Betrayal.” Still no story on the virus. Jan.27th National Review front cover: “The Missing Babies: Americas Fertility Crises.” Still nothing on the virus. On to February!

Decision Magazine had this front-page headline to start the month off: “Confronting the Lies that Deceive a Nation.” That is a great way to start February! The article highlights the lies of mainstream media. World Magazine also started the month off with a doozy: “The Gospel According to Pete.” The article is about how a gay man is running for president and he is claiming to be a Christian. Buttigieg is quoted as saying, “those who affirm the Biblical teaching that homosexuality is sinful have a quarrel with my creator.” World pointed out the lies of the devil being pushed by the media regarding Buttigieg. The Feb. 4th, 11th, and 18th editions of the Washington Examiner had nothing about the virus. The Feb. 10th and 24th of National Review had nothing on the virus. Really? The Feb.24th edition though the cover story was: “Wayward Shepherd on Pope Francis’s erroneous path.” This article is worth reading because it does a great job showing how antichristian the Vatican has become. February ended with no articles on the virus in three more of the magazines I read. Great article in the 2/15 edition of World worth reading called “The Rising Evil of Anti-Semitism.”

March: Finally, the first mention of the virus from the Washington Times on March 2nd. Headline, “Politics of an Outbreak.” It is interesting to me that the coronavirus breaks into the news as the Obama Administration feels the heat over the illegal spying on the Trump Administration. In the March 2nd edition of the Washington Times, this headline appeared: “Page Says FBI abuses go beyond what Horowitz report uncovered.” As I write this today, indictments are being prepared for the major players in that illegal operation. More on that later. In addition, there was an article on Chinese tech deals. States that made a deal with the Chinese are vulnerable to tracking, hacking, stealing, and abuse by the communists and their faulty equipment. Here is a quote: “Leading Chinese technology companies have sold equipment to state governments in the US that can be used by Beijing to obtain sensitive information, according to a security analysis made public” As we are in the midst of dealing with the virus, more evidence surfaces that the Chinese lied about the virus. The father of lies has worked through the Chinese government. Communist governments have an obligation to lie because they live for their father the devil. They are deceived into thinking that their atheism means they do not have a god. They have a god called Satan, the Dragon!

In the March 3rd edition of the Washington Examiner, this article appeared: “China’s Political Warfare Strategy Takes Hit with Coronavirus. Beijing’s response to the crises undermines its credibility and proves the Chinese Communist Party is a global threat.” Just as the Communist regime made the NBA back off supporting Hong Kong, China has accused the USA of racism. Just saying the virus came from China will bring a firestorm from the liberal press.  The official line from the Chinese is that the virus originated from the USA. Decision Magazine ran a story how Franklin Graham has been disinvited from speaking in Great Britain because he hates everyone. Really? The LBGT lobby has successfully scared everyone into dropping Graham from preaching the gospel. What a day we live in; Pray for Britain. The March 17th edition of the Washington Examiner had five articles on the coronavirus. The March 14th edition of World had this article: “Infectious Anger, as the coronavirus spreads in China, so does the fury at the government.”

This is how God was working thru the virus in Wuhan, “with the local government completely overwhelmed by the coronavirus, Wuhan churches have stepped up to provide aid to the desperate. Those whom Christians have helped are grateful and some want to learn more about the faith.” As Satan lies to people, God tells the truth and the Gospel is spreading! In the March 23rd edition of National Review, here is the headline: “Plagues and Panics, Ancient and Modern, the world’s reaction to the coronavirus is disproportionate to the threat.” Here in lies the problem with this virus and its aftermath. It is very hard to sort out truth from lies. Satan loves this tool; it is called confusion!

I read five more magazines in March and the bottom line is that the virus took over the press. God was going to have His witness though. Newsmax had this as their cover story in April: “The True Believers Trump and His Evangelicals.” Although the majority of the articles were about the virus, this article about Christian support for Trump was amazing. Here is one quote: “President unwavering support and commitment to defend the State of Israel is a key reason for his rock solid evangelical support.” The amazing thing is all of the prayer for the president. God hears and responds. That gives me hope.

Over the last three months, there have been speeches by Trump Administration officials about the Chinese and their attacks on the USA. In addition, there have been speeches about the court cases regarding Operation Crossfire Hurricane. Today, this came out!

“Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell declassified a slew of footnotes from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse.”

Two things are happening simultaneously. The Justice department is investigating a pedophile ring at the same time they are bringing charges against the people who ran Operation Crossfire Hurricane. The two are related. Why? Because the same people who ran Operation Crossfire Hurricane are connected to the pedophile ring of Jeffrey Epstein!

“A new documentary, Out of the Shadows, exposes the origins of false narratives in Hollywood. It points to the documents in the post World War II-era verifying the CIA’s Operation Paperclip and Nazi programming, and later to the Satanist cult of the PizzaGate exposed by Wikileaks and to Jeffrey Epstein’s network of pedophiles involvement in Hollywood.” The Jeffrey Epstein story includes many prominent people participating in his pedophile ring. Some of those people are being investigated for attacking Trump.  

The Federalist reported this 4/15/2020:

It was clear even before yesterday’s additional declassifications that the “Obama Administration Spied on the Trump Campaign Big Time.” But now we know that in addition to the electronic surveillance of Trump campaign associate Carter Page, the FBI conducted “physical searches targeting Carter Page,” which could include “physical premises or personal property,” and that the FISA court authorized “overseas surveillance” of Page.

“The declassifications also revealed extensive contacts between Steele and Eurasian oligarchs—something that concerned the FBI’s Transnational Organized Crime Intelligence Unit. The footnote further added “that Steele’s contact with 5 Russian oligarchs in a short period of time was unusual and recommended that a validation review be completed on Steele because of this activity.” That Steele had such close connections with five Russian oligarchs also raises questions concerning whether the oligarchs were feeding Steele disinformation on behalf of Putin. The three footnotes declassified last week revealed that “the Crossfire Hurricane team had received reporting ‘indicating the potential for Russian disinformation influencing Steele’s election reporting.’”

These revelations have people like former FBI director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan running for the hills. The feds were said to be “scrutinizing” the phone and email records of Brennan in order to “assess” his involvement in what the New York Times still refuses to admit was a failed coup d’etat against the duly elected president of the United States. Brennan voted for the Communist candidate for president in 1976, back when the Soviet Union actually posed a real threat to the United States. This guy is an anti-American and the small-timers always rat out the boss. That’s the true mark of a thug — snitching on one’s fellow criminals. US Attorney John Durham is in charge of breaking up this Red sedition ring and has hid the witnesses so they don’t kill them like they did Jeffrey Epstein!

The devil is a liar, he hates children and the Jeffrey Epstein’s of the world are workers for Satan. The Federalist reported in July 2019 about the Epstein arrest: “The swamp gets swampier as links to Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire accused of sex trafficking underage girls, and Washington heavyweights.”  These rich people are scared because President Trump is determined to put in jail all of the people who were involved with the false Russian collusion farce and the pedophile ring. The coronavirus shutdown has given the feds the room to advance both cases. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people! Pray that our nation heals from these evil sins! Psalm 2:2-3, adequately describes our day. Stand firm my friends:

Psalm 2:2, The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!” Thank God Jesus Wins!!

World War 4

Prophecy Update: Zephaniah and World War 4!       4/9/2020

Its Thursday morning 4/9/2020 and I am reflecting on what Mike Pompeo and President Trump said last night. Both confronted the World Health Organization for their deception and failures regarding the coronavirus. The conflict is heating up. More tension and strife will result from the failures of China and the World Health Organization. This update is about this conflict!

The prophet Zephaniah lived during the days of Josiah King of Judah. He was living during a time of peace but prophesied war. God told Zephaniah that war with Babylon would destroy his country and to anticipate a much bigger war. Someday God would bring a war that would encompass the whole earth. I am calling that war ‘World War IV!

Zephaniah 3:8 “Therefore wait for Me,” declares the LORD, “for the day when I rise up as a witness. Indeed, My decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out on them My indignation, all My burning anger; for all the earth will be devoured by the fire of My zeal.”

Wait for Me. That is an interesting request from the God of the universe. For the better part of 30 years, I have been waiting for the LORD, anticipating World War 4 as a ‘watchman on the wall.’ Waiting includes studying, observing, pursuing, anticipating, and dreaming of a day that will bring about the end times Jesus promised would come! Word War 4 is called the ‘Day of the LORD’ in the Bible.  Zephaniah 1:14-15 describes the ‘Day of the Lord’:

“Near is the great day of the LORD, near and coming very quickly; listen, the day of the LORD!

In it the warrior cries out bitterly. A day of wrath is that day, a day of trouble and distress, a day of destruction and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness.”  

We have witnessed two world wars in the last 100 years. I believe the Cold War was World War 3. What has fascinated me are the parallels between the time before WW2 and our day. We who sit on the precipice of WW4 are experiencing the same defects that led to WW2.

First Defect: Pacifist leaders

In the 1930’s, pacifist leaders dominated much of Europe and the USA. As Nazi Germany rose to power, it was evident that they were going to start a war. Neville Chamberlain was Prime Minister of Britain and he is the poster child for appeasement. Here is a quote from the Imperial War Museum:

“Instituted in the hope of avoiding war, appeasement was the name given to Britain’s policy in the 1930s of allowing Hitler to expand German territory unchecked. Most closely associated with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, it is now widely discredited as a policy of weakness. Yet at the time, it was a popular and seemingly pragmatic policy.”

 One man who was not a pacifist was Winston Churchill. Churchill spent much of the 1930s warning about the dangers of Nazi Germany. At one point, his warnings were so intense that some in parliament wanted to put him in an insane asylum. In September 1939 Germany invaded Poland and everything changed for Churchill. The attack started World War 2, a struggle that Churchill would later call “The Unnecessary War.” Churchill led Britain to victory and the pacifists took a backseat to those who had courage.

Today, we have pacifists in the American government who appease China. The State Department has appeased communist China for 50 years. The policy of engagement attempted to use economics to move China away from Marxist totalitarianism to democratic freedom. That has been an utter failure!! Along the way, one man has been warning us that China is at war with the USA. Bill Gertz has been warning America for 30 years that China is preparing to destroy the USA. Enter the Coronavirus. The spread of this virus has brought on a tidal wave of criticism towards communist China. All of a sudden, people want blood. Here are a few examples.

Pressure grows to hold China accountable for pandemic. WND 4/6/2020.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. contends, “China must face a “reckoning” from the United States and other global powers after the pandemic appears to be under control.” Lawsuits and talk of sanctions have begun to hold the communist nation accountable for the global spread of the virus. Cotton already has proposed legislation to encourage drug companies to pull their plants out of China. The State Journal Register in the Illinois capital reported state Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer says, “China must pay for coronavirus damages.” He called for Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul to begin litigation against China for damages. Larry Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch, has filed a federal lawsuit seeking $20 trillion in damages from China for the coronavirus. President Trump and Sec. of Defense, Mike Pompeo are not pacifists and they will not appease China. This is going to make things very interesting in the next few weeks.

As you can see, many are using this pandemic as a way to highlight the true nature of the Chinese government. Bill Gertz wrote a book about this in 2000 called:

The China Threat: How the People’s Republic Targets America. Copyright 2000 by Bill Gertz.

Gertz has been consistent; here is an article from last September:

SEPTEMBER 6, 2019, Washington Free Beacon senior editor Bill Gertz said on Thursday that China is the “real existential” threat the United States faces right now. Gertz said China is waging a multifronted war on the United States, attacking it in areas of trade as well as in areas of national security, with ramped-up military efforts in “space weaponry, cyber-attacks, and intelligence operations.” “I’ve basically been really beating the drum to highlight this threat from China, which I think is going to take all of America’s resources to confront and really mitigate this threat,” he said. Gertz is not a pacifist, don’t you agree? This is important because the second defect is worse than the first.

Second Defect: Spiritual Apathy

Communist China is at war with God. The official stand of communism is atheism. Communists like it when there are no rivals for the peoples love and adoration. The current leader of China is

Xi Jingping who acts as if he is god. Here is a quote about the current conditions for Christians in China from the Gospel Coalition:

“In 2019, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) noted that as a Christian in China, your Bible may have been rewritten by the Chinese government, your church shuttered or demolished, and your pastor imprisoned. In an ongoing effort to “sinicize” religious belief (i.e., make religious belief Chinese in character), the communist Chinese government arrested more than 5,000 Christians and 1,000 church leaders. The government also continued its persecution by closing down or demolishing thousands of churches.” Christians were instructed to put up a picture of President Xi and take down any pictures of Jesus. Seriously!

If you need a reason for God sending judgment on the world, here is a quote that will truly shock you:

“In 1971 the Communist government implemented a one-child policy in the country. In 2013—two years before officially ending the policy, the Chinese Health Ministry reported that over the four decades 336 million abortions were performed—the largest single slaughter of human beings in the history of the world.” God is against the spilling of innocent blood. The Chinese have blood on their hands, as do all of the nations that murder babies through abortion.

Zephaniah brings up spiritual apathy in Zeph.1:12, it says

“It will come about at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And I will punish the men

who are stagnant in spirit, who say in their hearts, ‘the LORD will not do good or evil!’

Many are saying that God did not send the virus. They are wrong! How can a virus spread around the world and God not have any part? Is the virus killing people? Psalm 139:16 tells us that God wrote in a book all the days of our lives before there were one of them. God is in control of life and death-He sent the virus to be the means of death for many people. Is the virus causing conflict in the nations? It is God who raises up nations and brings them down. Is the virus causing the economy to tank? Daniel 2:21 says that “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” Nothing in this world happens by random chance! God has warned the nations and the nations refuse to listen and repent.

Back to World War 2—the USA and Britain depended on the USSR to help us win against Germany because of apathy and appeasement. In 1942, a cartoon appeared in Moscow. The cartoon showed a soldier of the Red Army kicking off the earth three old men named, God, Pope, and Capitalism. Beijing preaches the same thing every day! China is spreading the false narrative that their government is superior in dealing with coronavirus crises. Unfortunately, many countries will fall for the lie. Communists always lie! I see this as an advancement of antichristian and anti-Semitic philosophies rooted in Marxism.

The challenge for our country is to stand firm in the face of Communist aggression. Will we act in apathy and appeasement or will we stand firm? Will the country come together in truth and spiritual health? We need to go back to the ancient paths—our rights come from God and our nation is depended on the grace and mercy of God. Will the country come back? There are signs that some are standing up. Here is an example:

“This is one of the worst cover-ups in human history, and now the world is facing a global pandemic,” Rep. Michael T. McCaul, Texas Republican and ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said last week. Mr. McCaul has said China should be held accountable for the pandemic.”  The President and Sec. of Defense are both strongly opposing China and it is about to get more serious. Mike Pompeo spoke about the Chinese at the Governor’s meeting in February and what he had to say sent chills down my spine. Here is an excerpt:

“I was invited to an event co-hosted by the National Governors Association and something called the Chinese People’s Association For Friendship and Foreign Countries. Sounds pretty harmless. What the invitation did not say is that the group – the group I just mentioned – is the public face of the Chinese Communist Party’s official foreign influence agency, the United Front Work Department. Indeed, last year, a Chinese Government-backed think tank in Beijing produced a report that assessed all 50 of America’s governors on their attitudes towards China. They labeled each of you “friendly,” “hardline,” or “ambiguous.” The Attorney General, too, talked yesterday about something called the “Thousand Talents Plan.” It’s a plan to recruit scientists and professors to transfer the know-how we have here to China in exchange for enormous paydays. The program has probably targeted campuses in your state. Indeed, the Department of Justice has indicted professors in my home state at the University of Kansas and at Virginia Tech and at Harvard.”

Pompeo went onto talk about all of the ways that they are tracking, spying and attacking those who are Chinese spies. He confronted those governors who are pro-China—I think the Trump Administration is at war with the traitors in our country. I cannot tell you how encouraging this speech was.  

China’s Fake News: Its ‘Superior System’ Defeats Coronavirus by Gordon G. Chang

April 6, 2020

“To push America aside and seize global leadership, China got Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization, to say that China’s response to the coronavirus showed the “superiority of the Chinese system and this experience is worthy of emulation by other countries.” According to the director general, communism is the superior system!

The USA is at war and the press is intentionally blind to what is happening. They are so anti-Trump, dedicated to pacifism, and committed to apathy, that they refuse to see that China wants to turn the USA into a totalitarian state. Trump and Pompeo are using the World Health Organization as a way to educate America about the war. Jesus talked about these days when He said, Mat.24:6-7,

“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not the end. For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.” Prophecy4i.wordpress.com, send donations to Christsprovisions.org for Joe Maggelet.

Prophecy Update: Do you believe in Miracles? 4/2/20

Numbers 14:21, “but indeed, as I live, all the earth will be filled with the glory of the LORD.” God is very clear about His goal. He is orchestrating the events of the world, mixing together multitudes of circumstances leading to a conclusion. The ultimate goal is to fill the earth with the glory of God. The coronavirus disaster is a step towards global government, global control, and global economics. Conditioning Americans to give up their freedoms and rights to authorities who have nefarious motives is an unfortunate byproduct of this trial. My question is this: Do these events fit in to Gods goal of filling the earth with His glory? The answer is yes!

Jesus gave us a short list of events that would signal to us that we are close to God accomplishing His goal of filling the whole earth with His glory. “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places” (Mat 24:7). Jesus is clear that at the time of the end, wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes will increase like birth pangs of a woman in labor. All of these are increasing and growing in intensity.

Jesus mentions deception as one of the signs and the coronavirus is a perfect example of spreading deception. Taiwan warned the world in January that the Chinese were lying about the virus. The World Health Organization parroted Chinese talking points and spread false information. Tucker Carlson of Fox News reported that 60 Minutes of Australia exposed the lies of the Chinese and the World Health Organization.

The Lord gave us a book that explains what is going to happen, Revelation. The book of Revelation is very clear that there will be a seven-year period called the Tribulation. The seven years is the final showdown between Satan and God. After the judgments of the Tribulation period, God will fill the earth with His glory.

I want to deal with two issues that must happen before the Tribulation starts. First, Israel must possess all of her land. Secondly, the coalition of nations described in Ezekiel 38-39 must be in place. First, we will deal with Israel.

Benjamin Netanyahu is going to lead the government in Israel for the next 1.5 years. Daniel 4:17 says “This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers and the decision is a command of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind, and bestows it on whom He wishes and sets over it the lowliest of men.” As I watched what was happening in Israel for the past two years, it was a nation in a civil war much like America. The anti-Zionist, socialist parties were working overtime to remove Netanyahu from the government. It is a miracle that Netanyahu is still Prime Minister.

Netanyahu has an enemy in the Arab party called the Joint List. Making up the Joint List are anti-Zionist Arab leaders whose stated goal is to destroy Israel’s foundational status as a Jewish state. God is very clear in the scriptures that prior to the Tribulation Period, the reestablishment of a Jewish State will happen. He predicted that the world would rebel against His will. This prediction is coming true! Dominating the conflict is the two state solution. God says one state and the enemies say two states. Part of the conflict is the annexing of Judea and Samaria. Netanyahu wants to annex the land and the enemies do not want that to happen.

This unity government will most likely fail. The coronavirus is driving the Israeli government to work out their problems. The new government formed to deal with the virus and challenges in Israel. This conflict will eventually cause the annexing of Judea and Samaria.

Another conflict is Iran! Iran is currently running war operations in Yemen through a proxy group called the Houthis. Part of the goal is to use the Red Sea to launch operations against Israel. 4.8 million barrels of crude oil is shipped through the southern shipping lanes of the Red Sea. “The National Interest wrote that the Bab el-Mandeb is the world’s most dangerous shipping lane. More than half of that trade sailed into the Mediterranean Sea and into Europe and North America. Think about the consequences of Iran shutting down this key maritime passage.”

“On March 3, the Saudi-led coalition intercepted a small fleet of four fishing boats on the Arabian Sea, one of which was packed with explosives. But there was something odd about these vessels: There was no crew. The boats were controlled remotely. These aquatic suicide drones were intercepted as they attempted to target an oil tanker 90 miles off Yemen’s southern coast in the Arabian Sea.” The goals of Iran and Yemen are to control two very important choke points, the Strait of Hormuz (Persian Gulf) and the “Bab-el-Mandeb is a strait located between Yemen on the Arabian Peninsula, and Djibouti and Eritrea in the Horn of Africa. It connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden.” The threats have increased over the last 24 hour because of this speech given in Iran:

What Iran’s severe virus crisis might mean for its threat to the region. March 31, 2020. Times of Israel. “The confluence of hard-hitting sanctions on the country and Iran’s floundering theocracy frustrated an adequate response to the pandemic, according to most accounts, but the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, knows who to blame: Genies. And Americans. Khamenei’s March 22 speech marking Nowruz, the Persian New Year, has spooked regime watchers inside and outside the country. He blamed the pandemic on the demons identified in the Quran as “Jinn,” known as genies in Western lore, and the American intelligence services working in tandem.”

“It’s an alarming prospect: If Khamenei truly believes that the CIA is working hand in hand with demons to engage in biowarfare against Iran, he may see fit to respond in kind. And any response would likely bring in Israel, the closest American ally in the region.” Add to this a speech from Yemen: “Houthi Politician Abd Al-Wahhab Al-Mahbashi: The Jews, U.S. Are Behind Coronavirus Pandemic; We Should Unite in Jihad against the Jews; Enmity towards Them Is an Identifying Characteristic of Muslims.” Across the Middle East Muslims are crying out for war against Israel and the USA.

The Houthi politician went on to say this: “The only path is the path to Jerusalem, the path of Jihad against the Jews. This is the path that will sort out all the other movements and guide them in one direction – the direction of enmity towards the Jews. Enmity towards them is the number one criterion for the believing [Muslims]. Tell me who your enemy is and I will tell you who you are. If the Jews are your number one enemy, then you are a believing [Muslim]. If they are not your enemy, then that changes what you are. Allah says: ‘You shall find the people strongest in enmity towards the believers to be the Jews.’ Anyone who sees the Jews as friends cannot consider himself to be a believer. That virus that has spread all over the world – the Jews are behind it. The Americans are behind it. It is not us saying this. It was said by the people who were the first to be afflicted by this plague: the Chinese.”

As you can see, the world is in conflict over this virus but it is also being used to call for war between nations. Jesus said, wars and rumor of wars! President Trump just tweeted this regarding the threats of Iran (Wed.4/1): “Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on US troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a heavy price indeed!” Israel also struck Syria this afternoon, claiming that the Iranians are the target. The US moved two aircraft carrier groups into the Middle East: USS EISENHOWER & USS TRUMAN.

There is a power build up in the Middle East for a preemptive strike against Iran. The specific threats include the American Embassy in Baghdad and the shipping lanes at the southern end of the Red Sea. Europe is beginning to respond to Tehran’s meddling in the Red Sea. “On January 30, the first French frigate began patrolling the Persian Gulf as part of Europe’s new anti-Iran naval mission, supported by Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal. This is just the beginning. Expect Europe to become more involved in this region.”

The EU formed a Red Sea council in February to handle the problem. Several nations signed on.
EU had “grave concerns” about threats from Houthi rebels and the smuggling of Iranian weapons to them. “Speaking on behalf of the EU, we obviously deplore any attempts to destabilize the area around the Red Sea.” Leave it to the EU to tackle the problem with another council.

This leads me to the Ezekiel prophecy and the eventual close relationship between Iran and Russia. In Iran, there is a movement that threatens the Islamic State. It is nationalism! Persian nationalism has been attacked by the Islamic State, beat down, threatened, but nothing has worked. Nationalists have a symbol they call the Paisley which goes back to 500BC. Listen to this quote from an article about Persian nationalism:

Imagining a path to beyond the clerical regime in Iran.
March 4, 2020 David Wurmser “Beneath all the Islam, the paisley remains the essence of the nation. The two coexist, but are always in some tension, especially since those who champion the Islamic overlay fear the resilience and authenticity of the non-Islamic historic core.” Notice this weird fact: Israel celebrates Cyrus king of Persia and Islamic leaders in Iran hate Cyrus. The Islamist’s have to stay silent about Cyrus because of the love for Cyrus among the people. It really chafed the leaders of Iran when Israel made a coin with King Cyrus and President Trump on a coin celebrating Jerusalem. The nationalists in Iran cheered. Ikes!

There are several possibilities from this existing problem:
First, Iran could use war to tamp down the nationalist surge. With so much pressure on Iran from US sanctions and the coronavirus, this is a logical move. Secondly, the nationalists could overthrow the Islamist leaders and join Nationalist Russia in an attack on Israel. I do not see this as very likely since the nationalists in Iran like Israel. Third, a civil war could erupt in Iran and war with Israel would be the only thing that could put a lid on the fight. Iran is heading towards some type of showdown in the Middle East and the question is will it be within their own borders or an attack on Israel? Encouraging Persian nationalism at the expense of Islam is the mood of the nation at this time. Wurmser went on to say: “Another of the most visited internal pilgrimage sites in Iran recently has been the grave in Hamadan of the Jewess Queen Esther (of the biblical Jewish Purim story) and her uncle Mordechai. Iranians believe her to have been either the daughter-in-law to, married to, or the mother of, Cyrus.”

The Islamists have been threatening to destroy the tomb to Esther and it has made most of the nation irate. Thank God that His providence over Persia during the days of Esther is the same providence that covers us in this current crises! The Gog Magog prophecy will happen, its fascinating that God is making it so hard on the Iranians to accomplish their evil Islamic will! AS the Iranian regime gets weaker and weaker internally, the more dangerous the regime becomes.

In June of 2015, the Pope wrote that he wanted “a global entity to wrest control from local governments.” The call for global government because of coronavirus is increasing and that fits the end times scenario God set forth in scripture. Watch and wait for the Lord to move in this situation but do not be surprised if American sovereignty is attacked. They will say that global climate change is a global problem like coronavirus. They will use global climate change to usher in global government. It has to happen sometime—is it time? What is happening now is the set up for the end time global government. Here are two verses to give you hope.

Habakkuk 2:14 “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” As a student of God’s Word, the coronavirus , locust plague, earth quakes, the wars, rumors of wars among the nations who are ready to attack Israel on its northern border, are all the signs Jesus said to look for when he returns for his bride, the Church of Jesus Christ. Pray this verse from Psalms to give you hope!
Psalm 72:19, And blessed be His glorious name forever; and may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen. This is my prayer today, that God will get glory from this world crises. Pray with me that churches will be open for Easter/Passover because Jesus is our Passover sacrificed for us, therefore let us enjoy the feast!
