The next few weeks appear to be pivotal to the future of the United States, and the future of yourself. Several sources over the past few days have popped up with information that indicate a future that is both catastrophic and hopeful, at the same time.
I dread the catastrophe, but I embrace the hope.
This has made the past week emotionally turbulent for myself, and I guess that I get the chance to share that turbulence with you. I am torn over the possible events that lie in our future. And, when I am finished laying out what I have seen, I believe that you will feel the same way.
And, it’s the year of the rooster, and with it come many ominous portents. No, not the mystical shmystical kind. The more mundane, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it kind. And yes, catastrophe will be the name of the game in this Chinese Year of the Rooster.
What can we expect?
Economic and financial devastation – or, at least more evidence that it is around the corner.
Libya falls farther into Russia’s grasp.
Gog and Magog will look more and more real with each passing week.
India will collapse and fall into the abyss of their own devising.
I always predict that the next year will be interesting, and I’m always right. Well, I’m always right on that word, ‘interesting’. The rest of my predictions tend to be less than accurate.
So, interesting events will abound. The question is whether they will be sufficiently benign for you to survive them. I suspect that the body count won’t escalate until we hit 2018. But, the wreckage of the financial system might leave you with very little to show for all of your hard work.
But, let’s take a few moments to look at what I think about the coming year.
We are just a month away from the US elections. The media has been breathlessly focused on the dog and pony show that passes for ‘democracy’ in the US. Unfortunately, this election won’t change the problems that we face, or the foolishness of our governments.
And frankly, I’d like to get on with talking about those things that matter. Unfortunately, this election is also revealing to the average person how awful our governments are.
You and I knew that they were really bad, but now a lot of the less knowledgeable now know.
What a week. We had the memorial for 9/11. Hillary went from deplorable to… almost on the floor. The Saudis are increasingly desperate to keep 9/11 out of the US legal system. Desperation is increasingly seen in the mainstream media, political parties and the financial system. We are seeing signs of a coming government ownership of stocks that will morph into outright ownership of companies. And then, I saw signs that Russia and Ethiopia are getting cozy.
Erdogan survived because he understood the battleground better than the generals did, and had better reflexes than the generals. And, Erdogan had been planning for this for years.
This was a real coup, with a real attempt at turning Turkey back towards the secularist values of Kemal Ataturk. The failure of this coup places another important piece into the puzzle of Ezekiel’s Fire.
Over the past two weeks the Republicans and Democrats presented their most persuasive arguments for why Americans should choose THEM to lead the United States. I’m not a fan of either party, and the candidates that I supported most did not get nominated.
More important, Turkey made its turn away from the US and NATO, and toward the Middle East. If you are wondering how that will play out, just read Ezekiel 38 and 39. And then, read Isaiah 19, where it talks about Assyria. For Assyria to rise, Turkey must fall.
These are momentous times, and the long, hot summer that I’ve been talking about isn’t over yet.
What a shocking week. Obama destroys the Rule of Law by effectively pardoning Hillary. Turkey doubles down on her rapprochement with Russia. We learned that investment in conventional oil development has collapsed. News of economic collapse gathers steam. Gold takes a big leap higher, and still has much higher to go. China teeters on the brink of a 1929-style Great Depression. Ramadan ends with dead bodies strewn everywhere. Matthew 24:7 comes to Dallas, where black shooters kill five police officers. A Palestinian terrorist murders a 13 year old American-Israeli girl in her bed.
And Typhoon Nepartak visits southern Taiwan and ignores my open invitation here in Taipei.
Events are moving forward in ways that make me uncomfortable. We are seeing patterns in the financial markets that we’ve only seen immediately before major collapses. We are seeing the threat of war in the Middle East escalate in ways that you would expect, if Gog and Magog were on the horizon. We have political corruption that is so obvious that the least aware among us have seen it. The hatred of tiny Israel continues to rise and rise, as our morality falls.
War has flared in the Caucasus region, with Azerbaijan launching attacks against Armenia. The Panama Papers has set the political hens squawking. I have some more on Israel. And, the political Armageddon that is scheduled for November might not wait for election day.
My grandma used to call this a bunch of fuss and feathers. Unfortunately, my grandmother isn’t around to share her wisdom with us, so you’re stuck with me. Actually, it’s probably good that she isn’t here to see how awful and foolish her country has become.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer, and I really hope that you’ll be ready for this.
