Events in the US appear to be proceeding down a path that history has recorded for centuries. In fact, students of history have been warning of this for a while. Even worse, students of the Bible have seen echoes of this from within Bible prophecy.
We really are in the Last Days, so what is happening in the last remaining superpower should not surprise us. Although, you will forgive me for a little outrage and some shock.
It’s hard to believe that the Deep State would attempt to ever-so-closely follow the tragedies of history. But, they have, so the results will be predictable.
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.
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.
Next week will mark a turning point. Either the Republic continues as it is, with all of its faults and corruptions, or it turns deeper into Empire. Rome stood at that same turning point more than two thousand years ago, and America is remarkably similar to Rome.
In fact, that similarity was by design.
Anyway, next week will be of enormous importance. Of course there will be other weeks of such importance, but there are few times in which such importance mimics history so closely and allows us to quote Shakespeare:
We turned a corner last week. As bad as things were up to that turning point, they will get worse and worse over the coming weeks and months. Some of the difficulties that lie ahead will be natural – the kinds of things that human civilization has faced for thousands of years. But, only some.
Why only some?
Because there is a force at work in the minds of those with power, wealth and influence. It is a heart of darkness that has given allegiance to the prince and power of the air – Satan. If you ignore the fact of his control, you will be blind to the direction that our civilization is being pushed towards.
The leadership of Syria has been vile and evil. They have sought to destroy both Israel and Jordan, and Jordan survives today, only because Israel mobilized her army in 1972 – to defend Jordan from Syria. Syria was heavily involved in the destruction of Lebanon. They supported every kind of terrorist on the planet. And, let’s not forget Hama. There’s a reason why they call rules for massacres like that “Hama Rules“. But, that was Hafez al-Assad.
His son is Bashar, and seems like a decent guy. Unfortunately, because of his father – and his father’s generals that probably STILL run the place – Syria has been destroyed.
And, I just saw it in a way that could not be ignored… yesterday.
We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who and what The Beast is, but seemingly very little time looking for the woman who rides The Beast. And, there are some interesting challenges that we have in trying to figure out the identity of The Great Whore.
The Book of Revelation gives us clues to the identity of The Great Whore. But, even though those clues are definitive, they still leave us with more questions than answers. I have tried to answer as many of those questions as possible, this week. And, the reason why I have tried to do that is wrapped up in a command by God found in Revelation 18.
This Beast Rider has a certain relationship with the world that identifies her. She commits fornication with the kings of the Earth. The people of the Earth drink the wine of her fornication. She sits on the Beast which is full of the names of blasphemy. She is beautiful and wears luxurious clothing and jewelry. And, she carries a golden cup that is full of abominations and filthiness.
As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.
And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. – 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.
As I said yesterday, I didn’t always see the CIA as evil. In fact, I usually thought of it as a pretty cool organization. But, that was before the evidence started piling up that there was something dreadfully wrong with them.
Unfortunately, part of the problem lies in the basic fact of how such organizations are created and organized. Such organizations are ALWAYS going to become evil, if they aren’t managed properly. In fact, I’m not even sure that it was ever possible to set up and manage the CIA properly.
But, worrying over what-might-have-beens ultimately doesn’t solve the problem that lies at our door.
