We Are Doomed!

We’re doomed? Sounds a bit melodramatic. I should probably wear one of those black, medieval cloaks with the big hood, set up dramatic back lighting and do arm waving as I moan. Doom! DOOOOOOM! Do you think that I should get some chains to rattle? Might be overkill. However ridiculous the word picture, it doesn’t change the fact of our eventual demise. We really, truly are on the path to complete ruin. We have lost control of our political system, and our leadership grows richer while our nation grows poorer. We have allowed slick advertising and empty promises to set … Click here to read the rest…

Have Community

I’ve mentioned before that you really need to be able to trust the people around you when things go bad. You need to be able to trust your neighbors to look out for you, like you look out for them. You don’t want to worry for your safety, and if you are attacked, you’d like to know that your neighbors will come to the rescue – instead of demanding their share of the loot. In short, you need community. If you are a devout Christian, Jew, Buddist, etc. – chances are that you already experience community on a regular basis. But, … Click here to read the rest…

Back in the U.S.S.R.

The role Russia plays in our world is a big topic for those of us who try to get a glimpse of that fascinating world we call the future. And, The Bible sees Russia as the key player in a prophecy that speaks of the coming of a nation (or person) called Gog. I don’t want to get caught up in the details of WHY we think that Gog and Magog are Russia. That’s a discussion for another time, but I can tell you that I’ve never met anyone who DOESN’T believe that Russia is Gog (or at least Magog) … Click here to read the rest…

America – Awfully Like Israel Used To Be

I’ve got this One Year Bible (OYB) thing going all year round. I’m sure that you know about it, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll explain. Basically, it’s a version of the bible that is split up into 365 pieces. Each day you have about twenty to thirty minutes worth of reading. You get a 1/365th of the Old Testament, a 1/365th of the New Testament, a 1/365th of Psalms, and a a 1/365th of Proverbs. (Although, some versions of the OYB will take you through Psalms and Proverbs twice in a year.) I like it. It keeps … Click here to read the rest…

The Coming Storm

Being stuck in the hospital has given me a chance to catch up on my video backlog. Just before we left for Israel last year, we took our collection of DVDs and converted them to avi. And, now I have the chance to go through some of them. One of the videos that I saw last night was called ‘The Coming Storm’, hosted from Mt Megiddo, Israel, by David Cerullo of Inspiration Ministries. NOTE: I have no idea if there is any truth to the scandal surrounding the size of David Cerullo’s salary. I can only comment on the video … Click here to read the rest…

Why This, Why Now

Well, since I’m sitting here in my hospital room, disconnected from the rest of the world, it has given me the opportunity to reflect more on WHY things are happening, not just WHAT is happening. Why things are happening is a common thread that winds its way through all of my posts, but it is rarely the raison d’etre of the post itself. So, let’s reflect a bit on the WHY of it all. Why is it that all this is happening now? Why is it that we are seeing a spike in earthquakes? Why do we see Russia coming … Click here to read the rest…

Brink of Disaster

Yikes! That, was an incredible surprise. Greece actually threw the whole question of Greek bailout (and by default EU membership) to a referendum? And, the Prime Minister sacks the heads of the military? At the same time? You know, I was just settling down to the idea that our timetable for disaster was going to be delayed. I thought to myself “Maybe I’ll get a chance to work on some of those other writing projects. Maybe I’ll get a chance to kick back for a bit and coast.” Nope. Not gonna happen. People are determined to be idiots, and I’m … Click here to read the rest…

Europe Headed for Disaster

You know, when you have a hole in your gas tank, you must fix the hole before putting any more gasoline in the tank. Yes, it’s true that the engine stalls, and everything stops moving forward when you do that. But, you cannot keep dumping fuel into a leaky gas tank. Pretty soon, the price of gasoline will go up, and you’ll eventually run out of more of it to put in the tank. Here are the steps for fixing a leaking gas tank: Stop car. Fix tank. Fill tank. Start car. What Europe has done so far is fix … Click here to read the rest…

Days of Reckoning

We dodged the first (for now). Here comes the second. The day is November 23rd, and it’s an open question whether we will get past this one. That’s when the “Super Committee” must come up with an answer to rampant budget deficits. The problem is that I’m not sure that we’ll get a solution. Here’s an article from Money and Markets: Two Big Days of Reckoning — Oct. 26 and Nov. 23! Martin D. Weiss Ph.D. | Monday, October 24, 2011 Mark your calendar for two historic days that could shake Wall Street to its foundation and change the Western … Click here to read the rest…

Iran Has Nuclear Weapons

About four years ago, I speculated that Iran already had nuclear weapons, because it didn’t make sense that Iran would pass up the opportunity to procure such weapons from poorly guarded stockpiles in the Soviet Union. It just didn’t make sense to me that a paranoid, imperialistic country like Iran would not jump at the chance to get ‘the ultimate weapon’. Well, it seems that I was right. Iran did take the opportunity to get nuclear weapons on the cheap, and they now have the means to use those weapons. The question now remains, how long will they wait to … Click here to read the rest…
