Prophecy Update: Learning from History 11/16/2022

If you do not learn from history, you will make the same mistakes others made. America is making great mistakes because we do not learn from history and because we have rebelled against God and His ways. This is especially true when it comes to Russia and China! It is also true of citizenship of the people of the United States.

Psalm 14 sums up the leadership of the United States at the moment. 

“The wicked fool says in his heart, There is no God. They act corruptly, they commit abominable deeds; There is no one who does good. Yahweh looks down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there is anyone who has insight, Anyone who seeks after God.” 

Psalm 14:1-2

President Eisenhower warned us about the evils of a military industrial complex. The very complex that has kept us in war for nearly 70 years. He said, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” https://www.archives.gov/  He said this in 1961. 

Before WW2, American commanders were indoctrinated in two fighting traditions. First, they learned from the Civil War to find the enemy, surround them and have a knockout blow. Second, they learned to be mobile, go fast, and destroy the enemies ability to fight. These were the strategies of General Grant and General Sherman in the Civil War. 

General Patton was like General Sherman in that he was very mobile, took more land and people than any general in history, and if the US Army would have adopted his ways, the war would have been over by the end of 1944 in theory. Unfortunately, the general staff did not like Patton and refused his counsel. History teaches us that when you make Germany weak, you empower Russia and likewise, when Russia is weak, you empower Germany. Just look at WW1 and WW2! We are making this mistake today by making Germany weak.

Enter General Curtis Lemay. He led the Air Force in 1944-45 in the Pacific and he made a calculation which he is still criticized for. In 1944, the Japanese were on average killing 20,000 people a day in the war. He had the soul of battle and understood that you have to kill the enemy’s ability to fight. He used napalm to attack the military infrastructure of Japan. Unfortunately, that meant that he had to make people who supported the war effort in building the bombs a target. They were citizens actively making war on several nations. 

“Bombing of Tokyo, (March 9–10, 1945), firebombing raid (codenamed “Operation Meetinghouse”) by the United States on the capital of Japan during the final stages of World War II, often cited as one of the most destructive acts of war in history, more destructive than the bombing of Dresden, Hiroshima, or Nagasaki. Although the precise death toll is unknown, conservative estimates suggest that the firestorm caused by incendiary bombs killed at least 80,000 people, and likely more than 100,000, in a single night; some one million people were left homeless. The Japanese later called this the “Night of the Black Snow.” https://www.britannica.com/ 

Americans who know nothing of war and the cost of war will apply their leftist ideologies to WW2 and condemn Gen. Lemay. They forget that God killed over 185,000 in one night, killed all of the inhabitants of Canaan, man, woman and child, they were not innocent civilians. The Just War theory is not correct that all civilians are innocent. Many become spies, many work in bomb factories, and weapons facilities. They are not innocent. They are citizens of their country which includes certain responsibilities. When your country goes to war, all of the citizens are at war! That leads to my next point, the Russia vs. Ukraine, NATO, America war is riddled with lies and false information! 

The military has had a secret weapons program for a long time. Area 51 is an example of the development of nuclear weapons which was a closely guarded secret during World War 2. The Manhattan Project developed our first two nuclear weapons that were used on Japan to end WW2.  Starting in 1939, the program picked up speed in 1943 when a laboratory directed by Robert Oppenheimer was created at Los Alamos. The lab is not far from Area 51.

Area 51 is an example of the secrecy required for the USA to develop weapons that the enemy cannot know about. A problem develops around the secrecy and the need to deceive. It is an incendiary topic because surrounding secrecy are conspiracy theories such as UFO’s. The secrecy speaks to power and morality and information because people have a desire to know the truth. It speaks to power because the competition for contracts and control swirls around the government and business like vultures ready to eat each other. The big mistake was to bring Nazi scientists, some of which killed Jews in the camps as experiments, to run the nuclear tests at Area 51. This compromise with evil has haunted the USA since. As a citizen of the United States, I object to bringing in Nazi’s who murdered Jews, Christians, and anyone who stood in their way. The Bible teaches us about citizenship:

The commander answered, “I acquired this citizenship with a large sum of money.” And Paul said, “But I was actually born a citizen.

Acts 22:28

Citizenship is the God ordained state of nationhood demanding members of the nation to certain responsibilities. This was not created by the Greeks or Romans but by God. Our nation has shifted to global, Babylonian norms for people that violate God’s truth about nations and responsibilities of citizens.

Area 51 is the story of this conflict, hatred, and control. General Curtis Lemay is at the heart of the story. This Air Force General was responsible for the attacks on Japan to try and win the war. He was a man who believed in the soul of battle. If you kill the enemy fast and furious, you save lives. Japanese citizens were responsible for the war as much as the military. He acted as a true citizen of America. He objected to the CIA running the show in Area 51 because they were developing aircraft that the Air Force would be flying and they had no voice. The other complaint was with the military industrial complex. The military industrial complex is run by evil people, godless people who may become some of the ten kings of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13. They push globalism and the Tower of Babel system!

The captains of industry, the military industrial complex, and most big companies turned to globalism in the late 1950’s. As time went on, they became more and more committed to the Babylonian desire for world government. Since this is more about the military industrial complex, they have a desire to keep selling weapons which means war has to keep happening. Their wealth is dependent on war and death. This is the story of Ukraine. 

Who is the ultimate in murder? It is Satan! The military industrial complex is run by the god of this world. Daniel 11:38 teaches us about this:

A god of fortresses (Heb = ma’oz = strongholds, place or means of safety) – This phrase refers to Antichrist’s honoring of military strength, might or power. “But instead he will honor a god of fortresses a god his fathers did not know” Dan.11:38a

He will honor himAntichrist will fortify the god of fortresses by providing a generous “budget” for a military arsenal, even as if it were an “offering” to this personified deity! That Antichrist honors a “god of fortresses” is seen by his continual engagement in war.  https://www.preceptaustin.org/

The military industrial complex has an invested desire to make war in Taiwan because it will increase their profits ten fold. The war will expand to Japan and South Korea only increasing more profits and control. The war in Ukraine will expand to NATO because Satan has a desire to raise up the final Roman Empire which cannot happen as long as NATO exists. Satan’s hand is all over this thing because he is a god of war. Russia will get stronger in this deal because Satan wants to use them to destroy Israel. God has a different plan!

The battle for planet earth has begun. John 8:44 makes very clear that Satan is a murderer, he is the true leader of the military industrial complex. 

“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.” John 8:44

Stand in the truth today, we live in a nation driven by the lies of the evil one! Abortion has spread around the world because there are certain people that Satan does not want born. His method of killing babies is an old and tried method. Satan tried it with Pharoah to kill Moses, he tried it with Herod to kill Jesus, and he is doing it today in Israel and the USA to try and keep the 144,000 Jews who Jesus will choose to be leaders in the tribulation period. Killing Jewish children is Satan’s delight! He is doing it in Ukraine and Russia, he is doing it in the USA, and he is trying like crazy to do it in Israel. It must really upset him that Netanyahu was voted back in…Satan hates those who love Israel! Pray that God will give us a reprieve from his evil! Blessings to you this week and stay strong in the faith.

About Joe

We live in the last days and the Bible commands us to watch for the Lord’s coming. I have a keen interest in history, prophecy and current events. I read widely about political and military developments and write a weekly blog from the things I follow. My special interest is in Middle Eastern affairs.

Since I was in college, I have also studied how God judges nations. It all started in Buck Hatches’ class at Columbia Bible College in 1979.

I fell in love with God’s word and especially the prophets. The results of this interest led me to writing The ‘I’ Judgements: Four Sins that Bring about the Fall of Nations. It serves as a warning to the United States, showing biblically of what we need to repent.
