Prophecy Update: Supernatural Stuff!

Supernatural World

God made a supernatural world that interacts with the natural world. Whether it is angels, demons, or the Holy Spirit, we are in the invisible world as much as we are in a natural world. When angels or demons materialize in the physical world, they are no less real as when they stay in the invisible world. It should not surprise you then to learn that alien abductions and UFO sightings are on the rise. Satan will deceive the whole world after the Rapture of the Church. Part of the deception may well be aliens (demons) supposedly from other planets.

“and lest you lift up your eyes to the sky, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, even all the host of the sky, you are drawn away and worship them, and serve them, which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole sky.”

Deuteronomy 4:19

The word ‘host’ in our text means armies. God is alerting us to the fact that when people indulge in idolatry, the worship will lead to demonic interference. Worshipping anything other than God will lead to the worship of Satan. The invisible world includes angels and demons. (Deuteronomy 17:3, Psalm 103:21) We all grew up in a culture looking to the skies! We went to the moon, outer space, and live life with satellites floating in the atmosphere. We sent probes out of our solar system and to Mars. Our astronauts have testified to seeing and interacting with aliens and UFO’s.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons.”

1 Timothy 4:1

UFO Musings

The Catholic Church has a special division dedicated to finding and studying alien life and UFO’s.

“Pope’s astronomer says he would baptize an alien if it asked him. Guy Consolmagno, who is one of the pope’s astronomers, said he would be “delighted” if intelligent life was found among the stars.” theguardian.com

“Lucifer Instrument Helps Astronomers See Through Darkness to Most Distant Observable Objects. A new instrument with an evil-sounding name is helping scientists see how stars are born. Lucifer, which stands for (deep breath) “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research,” is a chilled instrument attached to a telescope in Arizona. And yes, it’s named for the Devil, whose name itself means “morning star. Lucifer is part of the Large Binocular Telescope, which happens to be right next to the Vatican Observatory on Mt. Graham in Safford. That’s right, the Vatican has an observatory in Arizona, manned by Jesuit astronomers. Now its next-door neighbor is named for the Devil.” popsci.com 

I read a book about the Mount Graham Observatory and the amount of time they studied unidentified flying objects. They assume that the aliens will make themselves known on earth at some point soon. What will amaze you is that there are now many people in the sciences, military, and governments preparing for Alien life forms to reveal themselves to us earthlings. This would be fiction if it were not for the seriousness for which the military and government are taking this.

“Jesus and Extraterrestrial Life: Meditation on John 10:14-18. It is from this passage that the above theory comes. The following verse (10:16) however presents us with an opportunity for a vast field of interpretation. Jesus says, “And there are other sheep I have that are not of this fold, and these I have to lead as well.” Please do not hold it against me, but I believe there is a great possibility that there exists elsewhere intelligent beings who have been given by God a soul and free-will. Though it may seem ludicrous, what if Christ is not referring to the Gentiles as those who are not of ‘this fold’ but to alien life, or intelligent beings who are not of the one fold of the human race?” catholic365.com 

It is not only the Catholics who are serious about this but also our own very government. The USA is preparing to reveal all of the material regarding UFO and alien life by June 2021.

Professional Elites Believe in UFO’s

“Pentagon UFO report: They ‘acknowledged the reality,’ whistleblower says. April 24, 2021. The US government is actually gearing up to share information about the “reality” of UFOs with the public — and not a moment too soon, says the man who claims to have run the Pentagon’s UFO program for 9 years. Former President Donald Trump’s $2.3 trillion appropriation bill for 2021 contained a mandate that the Pentagon and spy agencies must file a report about “unidentified aerial phenomena” or UAP. Most of us just call them flying saucers or UFOs.” nypost.com 

Let me introduce you to Luis Elizondo. “Luis “Lue” Elizondo is the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (ATTIP), the secretive Pentagon unit that studied UFOs. As a senior counterintelligence officer for the Department of Defense, he operated throughout Afghanistan, the Middle East and Latin America.” history.com

In 2019 he produced a show on the History Channel called, “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.” I watched both seasons of the show, took notes, and researched the stories revealed. There are serious people now propagating UFOLOGY is a reality. For instance, this professor from Harvard.

“Abraham “Avi” Loeb is an Israeli-American theoretical physicist who works on astrophysics and cosmology. Loeb is the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University. Astronomer Avi Loeb Says Aliens Have Visited, and He’s Not Kidding. In conversation, the Harvard University professor explains his shocking hypothesis—and calls out what he sees as a crisis in science. When astronomers around the world scrambled to study an enigmatic interstellar visitor—the first ever seen—that briefly came within range of their telescopes. The object’s discoverers dubbed it ‘Oumuamua—a Hawaiian term that roughly translates to “scout.”  scientificamerican.com 

Christian pastors and teachers have been teaching about UFO’s for many years. They are clear that the UFO phenomenon is clearly demonic. Dr. Hugh Ross wrote a paper on it, here is an excerpt:

“Dr. Allen J. Hynek, a Physicist and Astronomer defined alien contact as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd kind. Encounters of the 3rd kind are those where there is actual personal contact between a human

being and a so-called alien being on board one of these UFO craft.” torage.cloversites.com

Dr. Hynek and Jacques Vallee are two non-believers who classified alien contact as demonic.  Dr. Hynek was part of Operation Blue Book, the secret UFO program that researched and debunked UFO sightings. Problem is that Dr. Hynek came to believe that it was really happening. If two unbelievers concluded that the whole phenomenon was demonic, why is it farfetched for Christians to believe that this might be the thing Satan uses to deceive the whole world when the Rapture takes place? I think we forget that angels and demons fight physical fights. This is true in both Daniel and Revealtion:

“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.” Daniel 10:13, 20

“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought.”

 Revelation 12:7

It is part of the Christian Worldview and any serious teacher of the Bible will tell you that the invisible world of Satan, demons, and God’s angels are working among human beings. Any teaching touching on the relationship between the visible and invisible world is important to us. That is why I am so interested in what will happen in the next month! What will the government reveal about UFO’s? What will they hide?

 Angels are going to fight in the future according to Revelation 12. Angels have fought in the past according to Daniel 10. What makes us think that demons cannot take on physical form when angels reveal themselves in human bodies? Do you remember when Balaam and his donkey met an angel with a drawn sword to kill Balaam? Angels can get very physical!

“The discovery of life on another planet might seem incompatible with faith in a deity. Yet many theologians are already open to the existence of extraterrestrials, argues the writer Brandon Ambrosino. Questions about life’s origins and its future are complicated, and must be explored holistically, across disciplines. And that includes the way we respond to the discovery of aliens. This is not just an idle fantasy: many scientists would now argue that the detection of extraterrestrial life is more a question of when, not if.”  onezero.medium.com 

The Return of the Nephilim

“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”

Gen. 6:4

The Nephilim exist because physical contact between fallen angels and human woman. Alien abduction claims include breeding between aliens and humans. Pretty bizarre claims but those with a biblical knowledge of scripture know that it happens. Several stories regarding the Nephilim appear in Numbers 13, Book of Joshua, and David and Goliath, each showing up after the flood! What makes you think they won’t show up again?

May 25, 2019: “Maybe you’ve never seen any space aliens, but recent polls indicate that up to 6 percent of Americans claim to have been abducted by them. The experience doesn’t sound pleasant. The extraterrestrials are often said to take their captives to their saucers, lay them out on a table and extract sperm from the men and impregnate the women. But an instructor at the University of Oxford in England believes the abductions are real. Young-hae Chi, who teaches Korean at the university, also claims to know what the aliens have in mind. In lectures given at the university, he says they’re creating alien-human hybrids as a hedge against climate change.” nbcnews.com

“The Jerusalem Post—along with many, many other media outlets—is reporting that a former Israeli space security chief has revealed that aliens exist… but humanity is not ready to know. In the latest “leak” of alien information (so-called soft confirmation), Haim Eshed, a retired Israeli general, stated in an interview with Yediot Aharonot that governments around the world know that aliens exist, but they have kept it a secret because “humanity isn’t ready.” He even insisted that Trump was “on the verge” of disclosing their existence.” wickedprepping.com 

The Nephilim are corrupted humans with variant DNA. Satan hates us because we are created in the image of God. The original DNA that God used to design us in His image changed into something not fully human. Only Noah and his family were left uncorrupted on the earth before the flood.  

“Changing DNA today: In the 1970s scientists learned how to change and modify DNA, the software that runs plants, animals and humans. In the beginning, we kept the genetic modifications to non-human things like crops. Wheat, for example, was genetically modified to grow to a certain height to make harvesting easier. In 2015, the FDA approved the first genetic modification of an animal to be used for human consumption. This leap of science now was treading on thin ice…toward the modification of human life itself. Scientists are now able to basically reprogram humans through genetic engineering. And they are using COVID-19 as the conduit to fast-track vaccines that INCLUDE changing our genome, our God-designed software. Scientists have figured out how to insert a different DNA sequence, called an “engineered cell line,” to literally change who they are, how they think and even how they respond.”

(This is where you need to sit down to finish reading) “Combining Artificial Intelligence with DNA changes. Imagine walking into your home and turning on the lights, not with the light switch but by just thinking the lights on and what room or rooms you want the lights on. You will be able to do this because you literally have your mind connected to the Internet.  If you allow this type of access to your brain, whoever has control of the Internet will be able to prompt you to respond differently.” compass.org 

A little over ten years ago I debated a professor at Ashland University on this very subject. I thought he was nuts to teach the students that they can download their brains to the internet. Now it is a reality—they really are doing this and plan to have everyone vaccinated to make it happen. They can reprogram and genetically modify your cells through vaccines! The vaccines injected into us can have all kind of genetic modifications in them, this is what they intend to do with the COVID-19 vaccine. We can read what they are going to do but your not allowed to talk about it. How’s that for censorship! Stand firm for the faith this week. Pray for your neighbors that God will protect them and that they come to Jesus! Maranatha.

Trend Lines to the Tribulation

Prophecy Update: Antichrist and his government!               

God revealed an outline cataloguing the trend lines of the end times. Before the seven-year tribulation period, five trend lines will be prominent in the world before the rapture takes place.  Normally, prophecy teachers use Matthew 24 to teach about the birth pangs and relate them to the trend lines. That is a great study; I am going to use another passage of scripture that does the same thing. It is 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.

This passage reveals five different actions describing conditions prior to the rapture of the Church. They are apostasy, lawlessness, activity of Satan, deception of wickedness, and a deluding influence from God. The seven-year tribulation period will commence with the signing of a peace treaty. Peace between Israel and the world is in view. Therefore, Israel needs to be at war! Is Israel at war today?  The temple of the Lord will be rebuilt by that time according to Revelation 11. Antichrist will come riding in on a white horse to save the day and the ultimate false peace will commence. Many other signs are in the making but I want to focus on these five from 2 Thess. 2.

Apostasy

Apostasy means falling away. The prophets teach us that Israel fell away from the truth of God and did not love the Lord. The Church will also fall away with increasing frequency and intensity, as we get closer to the rapture of the church.

God told Paul to tell us to look for the rise of false teachers and a falling away from the truth given us in the Word of God.

“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction.”

2 Thess.2:3

America is included in the falling away of Western Culture; they rejected the Scriptures and the Judeo Christian worldview. Niall Ferguson wrote a fascinating book called, “Civilization: The West and the Rest.” In this book he detailed how the West, in five centuries came to dominate the world.

“Six hundred years ago the petty kingdoms of Western Europe seemed like miserable backwaters, ravaged by incessant war and pestilence. It was Ming China or Ottoman Turkey that had the look of world civilizations. How did the West overtake its Eastern rivals? And has the zenith of Western power now passed?” docuwiki.net 

Ferguson is not a Christian but detailed how Judeo/Christian thought came to fruition in western society. He summarized the ascension of the West calling them the six killer apps. “The ‘killer apps’ of the West’s success – competition, science, the property owning democracy, modern medicine, the consumer society and the Protestant work ethic – the real explanation of how, for five centuries, a clear minority of mankind managed to secure the majority of the earth’s resources.” en.wikipedia.org 

Ferguson’s book does not talk about the importance of the Christian worldview very much, but all six of the killer app’s came about because of Christianity. It was a Christianity rooted in all of the Bible, not just the New Testament. He explains that the protestant work ethic could rightly be called the protestant Word ethic. It was because the Word of God was central to life. He is right to point out that the West is failing because we have rejected these six views of life. He does not however, attribute the fall as apostasy.

My argument for the apostasy of the American government and the West in general goes back to 1215 and the writing of the Magna Carta. This document became the basis of all legal proceedings in the West. The ideas of government came from the Bible. The West has wrestled with this for nearly 800 years. Since 1930, we have been undercutting the biblical basis of government. Today, we have seen our enemies destroy Judeo/Christian thought, eliminating it from culture.   

“Back in 1965, a scholar named Helen Silving wrote an article in the Harvard Journal on Legislation that brought to light the basis for the Magna Carta. Here is what she wrote: An old document such as the Magna Carta is not only that which it “was” at the time of its conception, but also that which it becomes in the course of history. In this sense, undoubtedly, the Magna Carta stands for the idea . . . of subjection of the King not to man but to God and the law, an idea rooted in the Bible which has dominated Anglo-American thought. At this time it may be sufficient to point out the strong possibility that historically controversial old documents of the Western world, as well as some quite modern constitutional ideas, have their origin in the Bible.” ponderingprinciples.com  

Enter Lex Rex: Law before King “A man commanding unjustly and ruling tyrannically has in that no power from God.” When Lex, Rex was written, the Reformation in England and Scotland was in crisis. The English Civil War had just begun after Charles I tried to impose popish rituals on the church and asserted his divine right as king to overrule parliament. Against these grandiose claims the Scottish pastor Samuel Rutherford wrote a book and changed western political philosophy forever as it led to the thinking that enabled the American revolution. In his very learned work, Rutherford shows from Scripture, classical authors, and scholastic theologians that the king is not above the law; and that when the king violates it flagrantly, the people are right to resist him, even to the point of war.” canonpress.com 

Unfortunately for America, since the 1930’s we have compromised our nation and the Lord by allowing antichristian thought to creep in and dominate the nation. Having presidents who hate the Bible and work against our Christian roots brings judgment from God! Our leaders have reversed Lex Rex, making themselves the law! The apostasy in government is also happening in the church. From Catholic to Protestant Christianity, we have seen a wholesale defection from the truth!

“Letter signed by more than 1,500 accuses Pope Francis of the ‘canonical delict of heresy’ May 1, 2019. “A group of Catholic scholars and priests has written an open letter to the College of Bishops accusing Pope Francis of heresy.” ncronline.org 

“The Dangerous False Teaching of Andy Stanley. He claims that Christians should focus on the resurrection and not rely on the Bible. Stanley rightly emphasizes the resurrection as a core truth for the Christian life. But his rejection of the foundational place of God’s written Word corrupts his view of the Christian faith. In this series ‘Aftermath’, Stanley discredits what he labels, “a version of Christianity that relied on the Bible as the foundation of faith. Any Christian leader who questions the reliability and usefulness of God’s Word is either terribly confused or a false teacher.” g3min.org 

Lawlessness

“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.”

2 Thess.2:7

“The Death of Law and Order Is Destroying America. April 19, 2021, In Portland, where Antifa has rioted almost nightly for nearly a year, the mob set fire to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building Sunday night with agents inside. Why has this lawlessness been permitted to continue for nearly a year?” dailysignal.com 

I can tell you why such lawlessness prevails in America for one year. It is because of the rise of the antichrist system. It is prevalent in America because God is judging America and He needs to rearrange the nations to set up for the final kingdom coming on the earth. Whether it is congress, our courts, media, news, Hollywood, or intelligence organizations, lawless people now rule!

Activity of Satan

“That is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders.”

2 Thess.2:9

Satan is a liar and he infiltrates people’s minds and hearts. He is currently doing that to America. When our leaders defend mental illness, we are in a bad place. One current example is the battle over women’s sports.

“FL House Passes Bill to Ban Transgender ‘Females’ (Biological Males) From Girls’ Sports.”Athletic teams or sports designated for females, women, or girls may not be open to students of the male sex,” reads the bill. That means no transgender “females,” who are biological males that “identify” as females. “ cnsnews.com 

Problem is that the NCAA has declared that they will not follow the law of the states that ban men from participating in women’s sports as a woman. Huh!!

“NCAA Board of Governors Statement on Transgender Participation April 12, 2021 2:20pm

The NCAA Board of Governors firmly and unequivocally supports the opportunity for transgender student-athletes to compete in college sports. This commitment is grounded in our values of inclusion and fair competition.” www.ncaa.org      

Deception of Wickedness

“And with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.”

2 Thess.2:10

Jesus was very clear with us that Satan is always working to deceive people.

“See to it that no one misleads you.” Matthew 24:4

Jesus described for us in 2Thess.2 and Matt.24 false doctrines and false teachers who would come among the believers to confuse and contradict the truth.

“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Matthew 24:5

Our passage tells us that many will not receive the love of the truth. This is a very important point. It is not just receiving the truth, but we must love the truth. Ralph Drollinger has a ministry on Capitol Hill and said this recently:

“It is becoming more commonly accepted in our society to shade the truth, sidestep, use qualifying words, narrowly defined meanings, or other devious methods to mask the true meaning of what is being said. We have become a culture that is more and more accepting of, or at least more tolerant and perhaps desensitized to, deception than were past generations. It’s become part of our norm.” capmin.org   

“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal faithfully are His delight”

Proverbs 12:22

How often do our politicians and media invoke the Word of God in a deceptive manner? Quoting God’s Word for the purpose of deception is no light matter with God. Drollinger said, “Too often lawmakers use the Scriptures out of context during committee hearings or floor debates in order to “make their point.” This is a very serious form of lying and deception.” capmin.org

One of the big lies circulating in America is about climate change. Politicians are convincing us that if you deal with climate change it will heal such things as racism. Here is an article with that claim:

“BIDEN ADMIN BLINKEN SAYS THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE CENTER PIECE OF AMERICA’S NATIONAL SECURITY POLICY AND THE TOOL TO FIGHT ‘SYSTEMIC RACISM.’ Climate change would hit poor minority communities “the hardest,” Blinken proposed, adding that addressing the issue “offers one of the most powerful tools we have to fight inequity and systemic racism.” nowtheendbegins.com

Deluding influence from God

“For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false.”

2 Thess.2:11

God describes how He judges people by turning them over to their sins. This is a step up in judgment when God actively sends them delusions so they believe what is false. This has happened to America, especially when our government thinks it can get away with killing babies and using their little bodies to make money. Here is an article about that…

“Federal agencies caught trafficking aborted baby body parts for profit. April 20, 2021 Judicial Watch has released a 600-page report exposing the United States government for trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts using American taxpayer dollars.” naturalnews.com   

God has warned us that if we accept shedding the innocent blood of infants then we would face the wrath of God. Like the prophet Jeremiah, we need to keep praying and sharing the good news. Living during the time of judgment is a privilege from God, He has chosen us to stand for Him in a dying culture. We can say honestly to the world that God’s ways are great and lead to success. As we live a holy and righteous life in the abundance of God’s lovingkindness, we will shine as bright lights! Keep on shining the light this week!

Prophecy Update: World War 3 and the Tribulation

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”

Matt.24:6-7

World War Three Musings

Does it feel like to you that the China/Taiwan and Russia/Ukraine war threats are coordinated? Are China and Russia doing this to test to see if NATO and the USA can deal with a two front war?  

Many articles and books have been written about the possibility of World War 3 breaking out. When we read Revelation 6, the war described can certainly be termed a world war. Jesus told us that there would be wars! I am interested in this question; will WW3 occur before the Rapture and Tribulation? In my own research, I have read several books about WW3 occurring during the years the Soviet Union was actively pursuing expansion. Mostly between the years 1950 and 1990. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the motivation for WW3 shifted from communism to Jihadist Islam. That does not mean that Russia or communism is out of the picture though!

“When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.”

Revelation 6:3-4

The first book I read on WW3 was, The Third World War 1985 by General Sir John W. Hackett.

“Early in 1977 a retired NATO general called together six of his collegues–including an admiral, an airman, an economist and a diplomat–to write a dramatized game-plan for the next world war.” thriftbooks.com 

I remember thinking then that the Soviet Union could not win a war in the West because slave states almost never win against Free states historically. That was a major theme of the book. It was a great read by some experts in the military. Many are now asking, can WW3 start over the tensions from Russia, China, and Iran?

In 2016 an interesting article appeared in Business Insider that explored ten planned invasions that could have sparked WW3. I will only look at two of them.

“These 10 world-changing invasions were planned but never happened. The Soviet Invasion of Western Europe: The Eastern Bloc countries maintained a defensive posture for much of the Cold War. The UK alone planned to drop at least 40 nuclear weapons on Eastern Europe. The American Single Integrated Operation Plan, first created in 1960, called for raining thousands of nuclear strikes on Communist countries, even if they weren’t at war with the U.S. For the West, the destruction would be so absolute, it didn’t matter what came after. For the Russians and their allies, the war didn’t stop at the nuclear exchange. Nukes only shaped the conventional battlefield.” businessinsider.com 

As you can see, Business Insider reported on the plans General Hackett wrote about. The very scary scenario thankfully never came about. If you want to understand what motivates Vladimir Putin to make so many nukes, to want to have a buffer between Russia and Europe, then look no farther than American and British military doctrine from the 1960’s. America was ready to use nukes to stop a Soviet invasion. Russia still desires to take out Europe and that makes many people nervous!

Business Insider also wrote about Israel in the same article: “The Soviet Invasion of Israel: In the days of the Cold War, the Israeli-Arab conflict extended far beyond the borders of the contemporary Middle East. The Soviet Union was the patron of the Arab countries in those days, a counterweight to the U.S. support for Israel. The Soviets were not happy about the rapid Israeli advance in the Six Day War of 1967 and warned the U.S. that if they didn’t do something about it, the Soviet Union would. The Russians prepared an amphibious invasion of Israel on the Mediterranean coast, with full air support. Strategic bombers and nuclear-armed naval forces were already en route to the Middle East when the Soviet Premiere delivered his threat to Washington.” businessinsider.com 

In fact, after the 1973 war, Israel found a lot of Soviet military hardware stored in Syria and Lebanon. Since 1956, Israel came into direct military action against Soviet troops four times 1956, 1967, 1970, and 1973. Israel invaded Lebanon just because the Soviet Union placed so much military hardware there for a future invasion of Israel. Here is a story about 1970…..

“The Secret Israel-Soviet Union War Nobody Knew About. In 1970, at the height of another war between Israel and Egypt, Russia began to worry that Israel could wipe out the Russian military presence in Egypt and thereby hurt its ability to neutralize the American nuclear threat. The Russian solution was to block the Israeli air force from the Egyptian skies by installing surface-to-air missile batteries along the Suez Canal. the Russians relayed a threatening message to Israel, demanding that it halt its airstrikes in Egypt. “The Soviet government views this assault as a provocative act that could have very serious ramifications. On June 30, 1970, Israeli Phantom jets, considered the most advanced of their kind in the world, were downed for the first time by Egyptian anti-aircraft missiles. Three Israeli airmen were taken prisoner in Egypt and one was rescued by the Israeli army in an operation that could have come straight out of a Hollywood movie.”haaretz.com   

World War Three Fears

That brings me to the current conditions regarding the fear of WW3 between Russia and the USA. In 2016 Putin told the world that if Hilary Clinton won the presidency, America would go to war with Russia. It was his contention that Hilary Clinton wanted to start a war with Russia. Here is the article:

“The Kremlin Really Believes That Hillary Wants to Start a War With Russia. SEPTEMBER 7, 2016, 12:56 PM. In a speech last month nominally about Donald Trump, Clinton called Russian President Vladimir Putin the godfather of right-wing, extreme nationalism. Putin accused the West of backing an armed seizure of power in Ukraine by “extremists, nationalists, and right-wingers.” Clinton had not merely insulted Russia’s president: She had done so in his own words. Worse, they were words originally directed at neo-Nazis. In Moscow, this was seen as comparing Putin to Hitler. Let’s not mince words: Moscow perceives the former secretary of state as an existential threat.” foreignpolicy.com 

Is it any wonder that our current President is itching for war with Russia? He has taken the same stance towards Russia as Hilary Clinton. This is coming at a time when America is no longer supporting Israel in her war with Iran. Biden, as Obama did before him, supports Iran over Israel. My question remains, can WW3 happen before the rapture and Tribulation?

I believe that it can for one important reason. America is not in bible prophecy. Somehow, America has to be out of the way for the rise of the final Empire of Antichrist. An interesting passage of scripture regarding another world war is in Zechariah 12.

“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.”

Zechariah 12:2

The cause of war in the last days will be Israel and the city of Jerusalem. There is no doubt that some of the current push for war is centered on the relationship between Russia, Iran, and Jerusalem.  Since America stands in the way of Russia and Iran regarding many of their wishes and desires, America faces the animosity and threats of war constantly. One day that war might become a reality. This is our current situation.

‘War is already here’: On the Russian border, Ukrainian troops wait for Putin’s big push. Valeriy Vavryniuk, a colonel in the country’s Border Guards, brushes aside a question about whether the massing of Russian troops on the other side means war is coming. “War is already here,” he says solemnly. “The war started seven years ago.” theglobeandmail.com 

As far as Ukraine is concerned, Putin planned to take Kiev many years ago. He has spoken openly that Kiev is a Russian city and that it should not be the capital of Ukraine. Historically it has been Russian for over 400 years..and they want it back!!!

“On January 31, 1667, the Truce of Andrusovo was concluded, in which the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth ceded Smolensk, Severia and Chernigov, and, on paper only for a period of two years, the city of Kiev to the Tsardom of Russia. The Eternal Peace of 1686 acknowledged the status quo and put the city under the control of Russia for the centuries to come. Kiev slowly lost its autonomy, which was finally abolished in 1775 by the Empress Catherine the Great. None of the Polish-Russian treaties concerning the city have ever been ratified.” en.wikipedia.org 

WW3 China, Iran, and Israel!

There seems to be coordination between Iran, Russia, and China to stir up trouble for the world. If all three attack at the same time, a world war will ensue. China is clearly provoking Taiwan to war at the same time Israel and Iran are attacking each other. On top of that is Russia!

“Would Russia Invade Ukraine And China Invade Taiwan Simultaneously? The potential flashpoint that could lead to such a situation would be the simultaneous decision by Beijing to use force to reunify Taiwan and Moscow to use force to conquer two provinces in eastern Ukraine. The chances of the coordinated events are not as outlandish as they might appear.” 19fortyfive.com 

As America deals with this reality, Israel has attacked Iran and Iran just attacked an Israeli ship off the coast of UAE. It is not a proxy war, it is direct war. Here are the two articles:

“Israeli explosion sets back Natanz enrichment facility by 9 months – NYT. Former Mossad chief Danny Yatom expressed concerns about the leak about Israeli involvement to the Times, warning that it could impact Israel’s operational capability, in an interview with Army Radio on Monday.

“If indeed this thing is the result of an operation involving Israel, this leak is very serious,” said Yatom. “It is detrimental to the Israeli interest and the fight against Iranian attempts to acquire nuclear weapons. There are actions that must remain in the dark.” prophecynewsstand.blogspot.com/   

“Iran fires missile at Israeli-owned ship near UAE – report: An Israeli-owned ship called the Hyperion was attacked near the shores of the Fujairah emirate in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, according to reports in Lebanon. The attack came a day after Iran vowed to avenge the explosion at its Natanz nuclear facility, which it blamed on Israel.” jpost.com 

“Russia, China warn Biden at same time to stay out of Ukraine, Taiwan. On Tuesday, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov warned President Joe Biden’s administration against getting involved in Ukraine, amid Russian forces massing on the Ukrainian border. Also on Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian warned the Biden administration against getting involved in Taiwan. Russia’s Ryabkov said “The United States is our adversary and does everything it can to undermine Russia’s position on the world stage. We do not see any other elements in their approach. Those are our conclusions.” americanmilitarynews.com    

“Russian President Vladimir Putin has been waiting years for an opportunity to regain an upper hand on the U.S. after decades of being a second-rate power following the end of the Cold War.

And with the ‘election’ of Joe Biden, Putin’s dreams of dominating the world again have been revitalized. Putin is going to push early and often, making moves he never would have under the real president, Donald Trump. Putin has deployed a real-live “doomsday weapon” to the Arctic, where Russia has, for years, been building up its forces by reactivating and improving old Cold War bases (the Trump administration was countering those moves, by the way, but Putin obviously doesn’t believe Biden’s handlers have the stomach that Trump did).” naturalnews.com

Spokes of the Wheel: Wars and rumors of wars.

Prophecy Update: Spokes of the wheel: Wars and rumors of wars!

Prophecy is like the spokes of the wheel and the hub is Israel. Some of the spokes include apostasy, world government, world economy, mark of the beast technology, revived Roman Empire, Wars and rumors of wars, and false Christ’s just to name a few. Today I am going to focus on the wars and rumors of war because Russia and China are making very provocative moves towards war.

“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 yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.” Matthew 24:6-7

Russia: The Bear

Seven years ago, Russia invaded Crimea and the world did nothing to stop it. Prior to that, Russia invaded Georgia (2008) and the world did nothing. With 25,000 troops poised on the border of Ukraine Russia has put the fear of war in the hearts of Europe. Some are calling this the Russian “Anschluss” repeating what Hitler did to Austria. Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy gave Putin one year to stop funding war in Ukraine, March 2020. At the end of the year, the deal was over and Ukraine was ready to fight.

“Ukraine president: Putin has one year to strike deal to end war. Ukrainian President Zelenskyy has refused to budge on the fundamentals of Ukrainian sovereignty in the occupied east, and has resisted Russian attempts to distance itself from the conflict. In recent months, Zelenskyy has also infuriated Moscow by targeting the Kremlin’s allies in Ukraine, including Putin’s personal friend and close ally, Viktor Medvedchuk. Russia has sparked alarm in Ukraine and throughout the international community in recent days by massing its armed forces close to the Ukrainian border. The military build-up has raised fears of a possible Russian offensive that could push beyond the areas of eastern Ukraine currently under Kremlin control and lead to a dramatic escalation in the simmering seven-year conflict between the two countries. A large-scale invasion by conventional forces would represent a major escalation in Russia’s seven-year campaign of aggression against Ukraine.” atlanticcouncil.org   

From March 2020 to March 2021, it was clear that the Ukrainians were tired of being man handled by Russia. Zelenskiy has pushed and prodded Putin to end the war. Putin not only did not end the war, he increased the pressure on Ukraine. Putin wants Kiev as his own and eventually he will take all of Ukraine.

“In 2021, the Putin regime’s main goal will be to remain in power. Coronavirus, the economic downturn, and the recent crackdown on dissent have weakened the regime. Putin will likely use force abroad to boost popularity at home, which may include conflict with former Soviet states. Russia and China have projected a strong partnership, likely aimed at intimidating the future Biden administration. Putin has ordered the murder of those who threaten his regime.” centerforsecuritypolicy.org    

Russia is being prepared by God to fulfill the prophecy of Gog and Magog. Part of that preparation will include winning some regional wars. Russia is flush with confidence militarily because no one has had the guts to oppose them. When they entered Syria in 2015, the West did nothing. NATO is a tame cat that cannot fight Russia. Putin knows this and that is why he is free to take Ukraine when he wants to.

“Rumors of War – Will The US Help Ukraine If Russia Invades? At this hour, Russian and Ukrainian military forces continue to rush toward the conflict zone, and to say that things are “tense” in the region would be a tremendous understatement.  When Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed Decree No. 117/2021 on March 24th, it was essentially a declaration of war against Russia.  Since that time, Russian forces have been massing along the borders in numbers that we have never seen before.  And of course Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky never would have signed Decree No. 117/2021 if he had not been given the green light to do so by the White House.

In the end, this is a game of chess between the Biden administration and the Kremlin, and one false move could plunge us into World War 3.” prophecynewswatch.com

There is a local joke in Russia that there are no billionaires in Russia, only people working as billionaires. Oligarchs run the country and act as a sort of government by Mafia. Putin would be the Godfather. Since 2000, Putin has been restoring the glory of the Soviet Empire by opposing the west, undermining NATO, and taking charge in the Middle East. If Putin can control the Middle East, he can control the gas and oil exports to Europe. This is one of his major goals. Israel stands in the way. To get rid of Israel you have to get rid of the USA. How are they going to do that? They do it by eliminating American influence.

“The Kremlin began reestablishing historic Russia by encouraging the revival of the Orthodox Church. The regime also promotes the “compatriots doctrine” claims Russia must protect Orthodox Christians and Russian speakers in other countries. In nine neighboring states – Moldova, Greece, Armenia, Georgia, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Belarus, more than 70 percent of people are Orthodox. 66 percent of Orthodox Christians in those countries (excluding Ukraine) believe a strong Russia is necessary to balance out the West and that Russia has an obligation to protect Orthodox Christians in other countries. 72 percent of Russians agree that their country has an obligation to protect Orthodox Christians in other countries.”  

Russian influence has grown rapidly in Eastern and Southern Europe, Putin has demonstrated that he is the leader they want. They blame Israel; her influence in the USA exacerbates the problems in the Middle East. As Russia has eaten into American influence in Europe, America has pushed Europe to stand on their own two feet under President Trump. Since Biden has become President, he will try to show Europe they can trust him to defend them. No one in Ukraine trusts Joe Biden. The reason is that he secured a high-paid board membership position for his son, Hunter Biden, with a Ukrainian energy company named Burisma. He threatened and bribed the Ukrainians out of money and influence. In addition, America is in no position to go to war with Russia over Ukraine. This sets up Russia to attack Israel in the end.

“Russia Erupts in Fury Over Biden’s Calling Putin a Killer. The Kremlin recalled its ambassador to “analyze what needs to be done” about the countries’ relations. Despite Mr. Biden’s long-running criticism of Mr. Putin, some Russian analysts had voiced hope that the Kremlin could forge a productive working relationship with the new administration in Washington on areas of common interest.”  nytimes.com 

I couldn’t help thinking that if Trump had said this, the press would have crucified him. With Biden, it said he was being tough, strong, etc. Blah Blah. The same people who wanted war with Russia in the Obama administration are now back in charge. They should be careful that they might get what they want.   

“Apr 6, 2021 Putin just signed a law allowing him two more terms as Russia’s leader, Military buildup in Arctic includes ‘Superweapon’ Poseidon Torpedo. Reports have indicated that the Russian military has continued with a massive military buildup in the Arctic including a “superweapon” Poseidon 2M39 torpedo that has been being tested on the seabed, according to a new report from CNN.” endtimeheadlines.org   

Russia believes and acts as if they can win a first strike nuclear attack against America because people who disdain nuclear weapons lead America.

“Could Russia gamble on a first strike nuclear war? Russia’s huge lead in hypersonic missiles justified a surprise attack? Would our military have time to launch a counter-strike against Russia? Would NATO countries come to our aid and risk a nuclear war? Yasen-class nuclear subs in international waters could launch a barrage of Zircon medium range hypersonic missiles, with nuclear warheads, against high value coastal targets. With no defense against these Mach 8 missiles, the White House; Congress; the Pentagon; Washington, D.C.; and Alexandria, Va., would be destroyed in 2 minutes.” timescall.com 

Since God promises to curse those nations that curse Israel, America under Joe Biden is cursing Israel and will be punished. As we stab Israel in the back, how can we expect to survive? Imagine this scenario: what if America attempted an assassination of Putin and failed. Putin I believe would not hesitate to attack the USA!

“WAR WARNING World faces ‘gathering storm’ that could lead to World War Three, British general warns. Lt Gen Sir Graeme Lamb, ex-director of Special Forces, said now was like the 1930s – when the world was hurtling towards World War Two.” the-sun.com   

If things are tense in Europe, they are even tenser in Asia. China is making war overtures against Japan and Taiwan…

China: The Dragon

“Beijing Accelerating Timeline for Possible Invasion of Taiwan, Expert Warns. The Chinese communist regime is accelerating its plans to invade Taiwan, an expert warns, as Beijing ratchets up military maneuvers against the island. Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen, re-elected last January, has taken a hard line against threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), while the island has deepened its cooperation with the United States—prompting the regime to escalate its warmongering towards the island.” theepochtimes.com   

America is in the hip pocket of China. China is making these overtures because they know that Biden will not stop them. He will talk a good game but in the end, they will amount to nothing.

“New legislation being considered that would radically alter current Japan Coast Guard policy toward how it engages foreign vessels in Japan’s waters could inadvertently hurl the region toward a hot conflict involving China. The new proposed law comes at a moment of more frequent and heightened incidents between Chinese and Japanese vessels around the contested Senkaku islands near Taiwan (and which happen to also be claimed as Taiwan’s). Currently Japan doesn’t have a mechanism which would activate its Self-Defense Forces in any entanglement with Chinese fishermen landing on the islands, which might escalate to involve Chinse military patrols.” zerohedge.com 

The largest incursion of Chinese fighter jets entering Taiwan airspace happened last week. The response of the USA was silence. The reason is that the Americans are outmanned and outgunned in Southeast Asia.

“Twenty Chinese military aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defence identification zone on Friday, in the largest incursion yet reported by the island’s defence ministry and marking a dramatic escalation of tension across the Taiwan Strait. The American military is warning that China is probably accelerating its timetable for retaking Taiwan, the island democracy that’s widely seen as the most likely trigger for a potentially catastrophic U.S.-China war. The worry about Taiwan comes as China wields new strength from years of military buildup.” abcnews.go.com 

Biden uses platitudes that say the world was stable before Trump, unstable under Trump, and now it is stable again because Trump is gone. Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) had a close relationship with a Chinese spy, Christine Fang.  This is while he was on the House Intelligence Committee. Hunter Biden was given a complete pass for siphoning money to his family from Chinese sources—some say it was close to a billion dollars. (They covered up the info on his laptop). Disney, NBA, MLB, Goldman Sacks, etc. have great business interests with China and have sold America down the river. Biden supports all of them. It is heartbreaking to see all of the universities that have attached themselves to China and welcome Chinese spies. It’s Orwellian to see the people who stand up for China against the USA. Bill Gates for instance, the third richest man in the world promotes China over America. Michael Bloomberg the 6th richest man in the world makes billions from China. How are these people going to stand for any pushback against China? China has been telling Japan, Australia, South Korea, Philippines, and Taiwan that America cannot protect you so join us. They tell them that America is corrupt and that the new order of Chinese hegemony is a better option. Make a deal with us now so you are not destroyed.

Trump told these allies that America was a better system and that they could trust us to fight with them. That is over under Biden. China does not respect or fear America so they are ever more aggressive!

“The U.S. 7th Fleet, whose area of operations includes the western Pacific and parts of the Indian Ocean, said, “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open  Indo-Pacific. The United States military will continue to fly, sail, and operate anywhere international law allows. Recent operations by Chinese warplanes also appear to show China is practicing to cut off U.S. and other international support for Taiwan, should China attempt to take over the island.
