A Spiritual Battle

Satan, the father of lies, walks about – like a roaring lion – seeking whom he may devour (I Peter 5:8). In the midst of the great battles that rage around us, we forget that this is – above all – a spiritual war. And, spiritual wars are fought with spiritual weapons.

Of course, physical weapons will play their part, but they are NOT the weapons of OUR warfare(2 Corinthians 10:4). I keep forgetting that, so I’m sure that you do too.

As much as I want to wade into this battle with ‘swords drawn’, I know that vengeance is God’s duty – not ours (Romans 12:19). This is a hard lesson for me to swallow. The injustice in this world grates upon my soul, and it cries out for vengeance.

A Spiritual Battle

We are all engaged in a tremendous spiritual battle. That battle is just one part of a great war that has been fought since the beginning of creation. On one side are Satan and his minions. On the other side are God, His angels and His people.

The battlefield stretches from one end of the globe to another. It touches every person on the planet. And, it reaches into the deepest recesses of every heart and ever mind.

This battle is about YOUR place in eternity. And, God is engaged in this war BECAUSE of His desire to place you in heaven. For some reason, Satan fails every time a lost soul comes to Christ and takes a hold of an eternal redemption.

I don’t really understand that, but I’m just a tiny cog in God’s incredible war machine. In fact, I don’t think that ANY of us really understand the true impact of what we do and say. And, I am impressed by how vulnerable Satan’s minions are to a humble and loving war that we wage against them.

My Own Battles

I am currently engaged in a battle for the soul of someone who has made great sacrifices for the Lord, but has lost his way in that service. He is a good man that has allowed darkness to encroach upon his life. And, I am the least of those who are seeking his recovery.

Last night, my wife and I taught our last class for the semester, and we waved goodbye to precious souls – not knowing what would happen to them. But, we know that God has their future in His perfect hands. And, we love every one of those students, both past and present.

My marriage is wonderful, but my poor wife is married to a crazy man. I routinely trample over this lovely woman, and I am grateful that she doesn’t take any of that sitting down. Outside of God, there is nothing and no one that I love more.

Our church tries very hard to help each other in the challenges that we face here in Taiwan. Of course, we aren’t always very good at that. In fact, in some ways, we’re pretty bad. Part of the problem is that our best members keep getting sent somewhere else.

In more than four decades of walking with the Lord – and often stumbling – I have never seen God defeated. Never.

And, the only time that I have ever seen defeat is when I did not entrust the battle to the Lord. I am my own worst enemy, and forgetful to boot. I am FULL of imperfections.

The Restraint That Lies Before Us

I am reminded of this by all the many battles that lie before us in the months ahead. Financial and economic collapse is rushing down on us. Wars are breaking out, and on the verge of breaking out. Our governments are turning upon their own citizens, and devouring them. Sin is rampant, and it appears that the Antichrist is about to rise.

But, I pause to reflect.

God is in this battle, and it is not our fight. It is His.

I am writing this as much to myself, as to you. I am not someone who likes to sit and watch while injustice reigns. It is hard to restrain myself from action. In fact, I am terrible in the area of restraint.

This is why I MUST keep reminding myself:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

 – 2 Corinthians 10:4

And then, this verse:

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

 – Romans 12:19

THAT one is SO HARD!

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to swallow my justified wrath and allow God to work. There are times when I am in open revolt against this verse, but I have to keep telling myself that God is the Great Commander. He knows this battle better than I.

What Satan Wants

Remember that Satan WANTS you to forget those verses. He WANTS you to lash out in anger and wrath. He WANTS you to fight with carnal weapons, instead of spiritual. Satan is the god of anger, wrath and hatred. He WANTS you to fight fire with fire.

So, when Peter said this…

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

 – 1 Peter 5:8

…he wasn’t just warning us against the evils of this world, but also our own temptation to do evil in response.

In fact, read all of 1 Peter 5. It’s a good chapter to take to heart.

In the research below, you will see many battles. Some we are fighting now. Others lie in the future. But, we will obtain victory in none of those battles if we aren’t allowing God to fight these for us.

I am a sheep of God’s pasture, and I await God’s vengeance upon those who threaten.

May we all walk in humility with the Lord, as these things descend upon us.

ARTICLES FOR THE WEEK

These are the articles for the week. Make sure that you’re sitting down when you read them.

Some of this news is REALLY bad.

Just wanted to say hello | Ezekiel Countdown

This is a truly excellent article by a gifted writer. The author is branching out into a ‘watchman on the wall’ ministry, and I think that she shows her ability to perform this task.

None of us can hit a ‘home-run’ like this every time that they write, but when we do, it shows the talent and gift that God has given us, so that we can serve Him. And yes, when God gives you a gift, it is not because you are better, smarter or more loved. What is means is that God has given you a job, and you must fulfill the responsibility as much as you can. So, bookmark EzekielCountdown and join me in reading what she has to say.

Oh, and what did she say here? (I almost forgot.)

Basically, she’s illuminating the horrendous error of Rick Warren and Kenneth Copeland. And, she really hit the nail on the head with this one. In fact, it was so on target, I could feel the ‘whack’ all the way over here in Taipei.

OUCH!

ARTICLES OF NOTE

These are the articles of special interest that don’t exactly fall into one category, or they may be articles that exist in a category all by themselves.

Whatever the case, I believe that you will find something worth reading in this section.

DHS plans New Year’s Eve present for millions of foreign workers

If it wasn’t so serious, I’d be laughing. It’s the kind of outright treason that we’ve come to expect from the government.

Your congressman promises to do what you want. You elect him – or her – based upon those promises. Then your congressman does what ‘the establishment’ tells him/her to do.

You don’t matter.

Doesn’t it make you happy to know that your vote is completely and utterly meaningless?

Why is Pope Francis Insisting Once Again That the Cross of Christ is God’s Failure?

This is completely abominable.

Christ failed at the Cross?

Really?

How UTTERLY insane.

Advanced Topics in Gang Stalking: Mind Control Slaves / Satanic Ritual Abuse – YouTube

Satanists, the Illuminati, the New World Order Elites, the Group… they are all one big organization with thousands of different faces but one goal.

The young man who made this video has done his homework, as well as being a victim of what he is talking about. And, friends of his have been victims.

I also know that this is real, because there are detective agencies that specialize in this kind of activity.

You will not enjoy this video, but you will have learned a lot by the time it is over.

George Soros Regrets Supporting Obama, Eagerly Awaits President Hillary

And, I regret supporting Obama, too… no …wait. I didn’t.

But, if I HAD supported Obama, I would have been disappointed.

I guess that Obama didn’t do enough for good ol’ George.

He expects more from Hillary.

Hmmm…

Hey, I support Hillary, too!

…for prison.

Prepare: Global Wealth, Carry, and Property Taxes Coming

When they prepare for something like this, then you know that something like this coming soon.

And yes, I really am expecting banks to fall in 2016.

Audio Message – Why I Resigned from the Hear the Watchman Conference – Nathan’s Expose | Watchmans Cry

I’m afraid that Nathan Leal is right. All that I can say is:

OUCH!

I’m afraid that Ted Broer is being deceptive, and deception should have no part with the Body of Christ.

Trump challenges Hillary to disarm bodyguards

So yes, Hillary. Those bodyguards have those really mean looking guns.

You should take away their guns and have them carry signs that say that they are unarmed.

THAT’S IT!

Make yourself a roving gun-free zone!

Now, where’s my popcorn… ‘cuz I wanna’ watch what happens.

Genocide, The British Don’t Want You To Know About – They Systematically Starved To Death Over 60 Millions Of Eastern Indians!

Oh, WOW.

THIS is HORRENDOUS!

I knew that there were restrictions imposed upon India, by the British. But, I did not know that they were such genocidal maniacs.

So, we can now add the British Empire to the list of horrendous evil. Amazing.

A Longevity Puzzle: Why Do Poor Costa Ricans Outlive Poor Americans?

This is interesting. Something is going right with Costa Rica. A few of you are living in Costa Rica, so you might know what that is.

Whatever the case, it is good to see a country handle the health of their citizens well. As for the OTHER problems that Costa Rica has… well …I suspect that more effort is needed.

Benghazi Soldiers Say They Believe Victims’ Families

One more data point that demonstrates the lethal lies of Hitlary Clinton.

Interesting. All that you need to do, to see the truth about Hillary is to just change that first L in her name… to a T:

HiTlary.

There really IS something about a name.

FBI preparing for Waco-style armed raid in Oregon… local schools taken over by feds as staging areas for weapons stockpiling in preparation for massive assault

I’m afraid that we will need to wait for confirmation on what was said in this article. If true, then I believe that this is the confrontation that the US government has been looking for.

If I was the US government, I would have more than one agent within the Hammond family supporters. I would instruct those agents to kill several ‘unarmed’ FBI personel. The government would then allow several days for the shock and horror to grow, before going in after the supporters, followed by new laws against gun ownership.

This is why I believe that this occupation of a government facility is misguided. These supporters of the Hammonds may have right on their side, but they are playing into the hands of the US government.

Here is the last paragraph of the article:

U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz has called for the armed protesters to “stand down,” pleading with them to find an alternative way to resolve the situation that does not threaten violence. Yet right now, it seems like the federal government is the entity preparing to commit mass violence, not the camped-out protesters.

Remember that we are in this mess because we have sinned against God.

Military Special Ops Enroute to Oregon for Possible Raid – Possible Agent Provocateur in Bundy Group

And then I saw this article. It confirms what I said above.

Here’s a quote:

“Both Ammon Bundy and Ryan Payne (who we suspect is an agent provocateur) told the locals in the Committee of Safety, at a public town hall meeting on December 15, that they, the locals on the committee, would be making the decisions on what was to be done, how, and when,” wrote Rhodes. “That was a lie, as they were already staging their men and supplies in the area to takeover the wildlife refuge, and had already planned out this takeover of the federal facility at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. By doing this, they have given Obama the best New Years present he could hope for – an example of militia movement/patriot aggression, which gives up the high ground while also having the least credibility and support from the locals possible, after lying to them, and also the least support from the patriot community, who were also blind-sided by Ammon and Ryan Payne.”

It sounds to me like this Ryan Payne is bad news. In fact, I have just discovered that this Ryan fellow has been lying about his military service and will not confirm his identity.

Here’s a link to the expose of Ryan Payne:

Police State Politics: The Best Way to Anger a Ranger

Interesting.

This smells like a setup.

Rebel Planet Dispatch: Obama’s North Korea Hydrogen Bomb Loophole

Is there ANYTHING more dangerous than a chubby kid with a nuke?

Try a chubby kid with an H-bomb.

And, I believe that our skinny president wants the chubby kid to use that H-bomb, so that our skinny president can take over.

All it takes is one H-bomb to ruin your whole day.

North Korea DID launch a HYDROGEN BOMB and cause an earthquake

…aaaaand, there goes the neighborhood.

I am far less concerned with North Korea’s ownership of an H-bomb. Apparently, a regular nuclear bomb will cause a far greater EMP than an H-bomb.

Furthermore, the chubby kid ruling North Korea cannot have enough nuclear weapons to do much damage to the US – except in terms of an EMP.

THAT is where the chubby kid can do the most damage, an EMP. And yes, I am expecting that – with some help from Russia.

After all, if I was Russia, I’d help North Korea EMP the US – just as long as Russia couldn’t be blamed for it.

Exclusive: Interview with Rome chief exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth

This quote bothers me:

But let us not forget what our Lady said: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, which will be converted and the world will be granted a period of peace “… Soon we will have great happenings.”

And this Fr. Amorth fellow is talking about something happening in eight months.

I hear the hoofbeat of Satan’s army in those words.

“We The People Are Pissed”: New Poll Finds Whites And Republicans Are Angriest Americans

I smell civil war. And, it is going to burn America down.

Cell-Phone Distracted Parenting Can Have Long-Term Consequences: Study

This is an interesting article that caught my attention almost by accident.

A whole generation has reached middle age – with adult kids. This now-middle-aged generation was raised with a television that distracted their mothers. The adult children of this generation was also raised by distracted parents who did not give them their full attention and love.

Now, we have a new generation that is being raised by parents that are distracted by cell phones.

Think about that for a moment.

Has there ever been a time – in all history – like this?

Does that maybe tell you another reason for WHY these LAST DAYS are as bad as they are – and as bad as they WILL be?

DNC Chair Complains About Abortion

Oh, OUCH!

This means that if Hitlary – er, I mean Hillary – DOES become president, then women (and men) DO love abortion.

Loving murder. What a country.

Could bizarre skulls with ‘non-human’ DNA be proof of aliens on Earth?

Sorry guys, but THOSE skulls are not human.

However, they aren’t alien, either.

Does it mean that the Book of Enoch is right in every detail?

Well, I do not consider it to be the inspired word of God.

So no, I do not believe that we can say that the Book of Enoch is 100% correct. I believe in being careful in how and where we place our trust. The Bible is true, everything else is open for debate – including what I say.

But, I cannot deny the truth of what I am seeing here. Those skulls are not human, and there are no aliens.

How Corrupt Is the American Government?

I actually could not finish reading this. The evidence of evil and corruption was just too much for my frail mind.

If you want to see another set of examples for WHY God WILL destroy America, look no further than this article.

We must be destroyed. There is no alternative.

Gallup Explains Trump: “A Staggering 75% Of Americans Believe In Widespread Government Corruption”

And, it looks like ‘We The People’ have woken up to how corrupt the Amerikan government is.

I just can’t say ‘God Bless’ and ‘America’, anymore, and mean it.

Chuck Baldwin- Oregon Standoff – Helping or Hurting The Cause of Liberty?

I agree with Chuck on this.

The US government is evil beyond belief. What they have done to the Hammonds is beyond disgusting.

But, what is happening with this ‘militia’ is wrong, and it is a gift to our evil government.

Most Americans are one paycheck away from the street

When I clicked this link – found on stevequayle.com – I had a thought:

The problem that these people are having is choosing self-gratification NOW – and going into debt to pay for it.

Then, I had another thought:

When they went into debt, they gave a MOUNTAIN of profit to the banks – more accurately known as the banksters.

That led to a third thought:

Those profits were turned into the political power to enslave every one of us.

How utterly foolish.

Human-Animal Chimera

These chimeras (pronounced: Kai-Mare-az) are already here. The need for organs is huge, especially as our societies age. Companies could potentially reap billions if they could perfect the production of organs in animals.

Do you honestly think that labs aren’t growing chimeras – human chimeras – already?

There is NO WAY that God will allow this. Please be ready for God’s judgment.

An Urgent Christmas Message from Stefan Molyneux – YouTube

For an Atheist to quote the Bible in a positive way… to wish you a Merry Christmas… …I am intrigued.

Methinks that Stefan is considering things a little more deeply.

Furthermore, it is a powerful message to get busy waking up everyone that you love. And, if you are a Christian, that means EVERYONE.

It’s why I am writing.

How about you?

Scottish Rite Temple in DC Video Tour – YouTube

Interesting. A tour of THE Masonic Temple – the most powerful and important temple of Freemasonry in America.

Did you know that EVERY President was sworn into office using a Masonic Bible?

The only one to deviate from this was Obama, who swore upon Lincoln’s Bible.

But, to think that every president has sworn his oaths upon a corrupt and defiled Bible. Interesting.

Experts: Oregon standoff may be small, but it’s just the tip of a growing militia iceberg

I don’t like this article. Some of it will get your blood boiling, so if you have high blood pressure… don’t read it.

But, I’m including this article to indicate a response to a growing problem:

Government Corruption

The USSA has become venal, vile and grotesque. It has chosen to prey upon the citizens of the United Socialist States of America, and the citizens are responding.

The rise in militia membership is just a symptom, and the government is not paying attention. They think that arresting imprisoning the Hammond family for terrorism is supremely stupid and a testament of the corruption of the American system.

I do not agree with the tactics of the militia members involved in this current standoff, but I agree with what they are feeling – the same feelings of injustice that led them to this decision. When injustice rules, good people die, and I would rather die opposing injustice than waiting for it to arrive at my front door.

Having said that, as a Christian, I must remind myself that this is a spiritual battle, and it will be won by our Father – not by guns. We have sinned against God, and our rapacious government is a result of that sin. If our pastors weren’t watching pornography, we wouldn’t be at this juncture. If our sisters weren’t having abortions, we would be at this standoff. If our brothers weren’t engaged in sex outside of marriage, we wouldn’t be facing the enemy that we face today. If our marriages were holy and righteous before God, we would not be where we are today.

Remember that God said that vengeance was His. Make sure that our Father doesn’t include you as a targe for that vengeance.

Missing U.S. Missile Shows Up in Cuba

We are SO ready for complete and utter destruction.

When a missile is ACCIDENTLY shipped to Cuba, then you can bet that a HOST of secret technology has been shipped to Cuba DELIBERATELY.

Rebel Planet Dispatch: Rename ‘El Nino’ – God’s Angry Fist

I’m afraid that Marcel is right. As our spiritual corruption increases, so will the judgment of God.

We have corrupted ourselves.

We have persecuted the innocent.

We have murdered our babies.

God’s holy and just judgment is coming upon us.

“We Came, We Saw, He Died” – Revisiting the Incredible Disaster That Is Libya

How that… that… SOMETHING can still be allowed to run for president, instead of prison… well, words elude me.

Look at what she’s done. And then, look at what John McCain tweeted after as Qaddafi was about to be murdered.

Does this resemble the country that you want?

The Prepper’s Primer: Gear, Skills, and Related Know-How

I just saw this on stevequayle.com, and from the description, it looks good. If you DO buy it, give me a review, and I will do my best to include it in an article – assuming that it is well-reasoned and knowledgeable.

THE YEAR AHEAD – 2016

Last week’s article was my own view of the year ahead. And, here are what others are saying about what 2016 will look like, when it’s over.

I do not think that the word ‘pretty’ will be used to describe 2016, this time next year.

2016 Will Bring Multiple False Flags, Gun Confiscations, Dissident Roundups, Financial Collapse and Martial Law | Dave Hodges

I believe that Dave is right and I devoutly wish that he wasn’t. I hope that there is less of it than he describes, but such fantasies don’t belong in the cold, hard reality in which we live.

Please prepare for the worst.

Will 2016 Be The End Of The Current Skyscraper Boom?

It’s the Skyscraper Curse. Civilizations and economies always seem to engage in grandiose and extravagent building projects, just before they fall.

Is this a sign?

We will see.

FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

A society cannot survive without freely exchanged units of value called money. And, that money requires a financial sytem. And, a financial sytem has no value without an economy.

Unfortunately, all of that is about to come crashing down upon our heads, if we don’t get out of the way.

George Soros Is Telling America To Buy Gold and Take Their Money Out of the Banks Before It Is Too Late | Dave Hodges

Glenn Beck calls Soros, ‘Spooky Dude’. And, I agree.

Good ol’ George wants America dead. He wants Europe dead. He wants every large group that can oppose his ambitions… DEAD.

Make sure that you are not in his sights – that you are prepared for financial collapse.

The Truth Comes Out: “This Is The Worst Global Dollar GDP Recession In 50 Years”

Somehow this one got past me, and I think that it’s important. If you convert global GDP figures into US dollars… 2015 was the worst recession in 50 years. And, I believe that 2016 will be EVEN WORSE.

Martin Armstrong Interviewed on Gold Seek Radio

Martin Armstrong Interviewed on Gold Seek Radio on – 12.30.2015.mp3

(http://radio.goldseek.com/nuggets/armstrong.12.30.2015.mp3)

This is an interesting 43 minute interview. He gives a lot of insight. Whether you agree with everything, is another thing, but his track record is excellent.

So, PLEASE pay attention.

What Really Happened In 2015, And What Is Coming In 2016…

Things are happening that had not happened since 2008.

That should scare you so much that you’ll need a change of pants.

But, there’s no need to be afraid if you have taken steps to prepare. If the choice is between preparation and fear, I think that you’ll understand what I would choose.

How about you?

Is 2016 the year of the dollar collapse? | Sovereign Man

I know someone who knows Simon. He’s a great guy.

Of course, I just like his writing.

Here are four points that he picked up from George Will:

The value of property seized by the US federal government through Civil Asset Forfeiture exceeded the value of property stolen by burglars and thieves

Florida police raided a Mahjong game played by four women aged 87 through 95 because they were *gasp* betting with their own money

New Jersey police arrested a 72-year old retired schoolteacher for illegally carrying a firearm– a 300-year old flintlock pistol he had purchased from an antique dealer

A 9-year old in Florida was threatened with sexual harassment charges for writing love notes to a girl saying that her eyes sparkled like diamonds

Complete madness – just like our financial system. You can see the rest of what George Will, here:

A “Perfect Storm Is Coming” Deutsche Warns As Baltic Dry Falls To New Record Low

Oh, no.

This is really, really bad.

Even during the ‘Great Recession’, the Baltic Dry Index didn’t even hit 600, and now it is 468!

This is a sign that the global economy HAS ALREADY COLLAPSED!

Please, everyone, I hope that your preparations are in order. The BDI may bounce back up a bit, but you shouldn’t look at any bounce as a reprieve.

This is a clear sign of catastrophe, and you need to pay attention.

What Comes After The Commodities Bust?

The graph at the bottom of this article is really all that you need.

What comes after a collapse in the price of commodities?

Like we have now?

A collapse in everything else.

Copper Futures Crash Below $2 For First Time Since 2009

There’s a reason why they call it ‘Dr. Copper’.

When ‘Dr. Copper’ is THIS sick, your economy doesn’t need a doctor.

It needs a burial service.

Is The World Ready For This? Countries Across Planet Prepare For Crash Landing

No, I’m afraid that the world is NOT ready for this.

But, my hope is that YOU will be.

China, Oil and Markets: It’s All One Story

When China goes, so will we.

You can bank on that – at least… as long as the banks are still open.

“Nowhere To Hide” As Baltic ‘Fried’ Index Careens To Fresh Record Low

Annnnnnd… it KEEPS going down.

People, you REALLY need to get ready for the worst. This is BAAD!

GOLD SILVER

I really do not know of any tangible asset that is universally recognized as valuable and is portable – other than gold and silver. Diamonds might also work, but the growth in laboratory-created diamonds tells me that the future for diamonds is bleak.

To me, that’s the point about gold and silver – having something that you can carry in your hand that will not lose all of its value, when everything falls apart.

It’s not the only thing that will hold its value in a collapse. It’s not the only universally recognized store of value. It’s not the only valuable item that is portable. But, it’s the only thing that I know of that is all three.

So, after you have invested your life in God…

…after you have moved to a safe location, in a community that supports each other…

…after you have bought as much food and water that you, family and friends would need…

…Buy as much silver as you can carry, and as much gold as you can afford.

Comex Registered Silver Inventories Plunge Nearly 10% In One Day

This is a BIG red flag moment. A nearly 10% plunge in inventories ready for sale is HUGE. This indicates one of two things – or both: that the owners of this silver have changed their minds about selling and realize that they need to hold and not sell…

…that buyers of this silver aren’t interested in selling at a profit at a future date.

My next question is whether these owners are going to take this silver and put it in their own vaults, instead of keeping it in the vaults where they purchased it.

GOLD & SILVER: Up In A Sea of Red… Get Used To Days Like This

Unfortunately, we WILL be seeing LOTS of days like this. LOTS.

And, we really don’t have very many options – other than Gold and Silver.

HUMOR

Sometimes ya’ just hafta’ laugh. It can help you stay sane in an insane world. Of course, if you laugh TOO hard, you might break something.

So, make sure that you are in a place where it is safe to laugh, before you read these.

I’ve heard that padded rooms are pretty safe.

Pictorial Essay: 19 Weapons Of War That Make You Say “HUH???”

I’ve been a military history buff for a very, Very, VERY long time. So, I laughed at these. And, his descriptions are funny.

But… um …he IS a bit foul-mouthed.

‘Dreams Can Come True’: Jimmy Kimmel Shows Video of People Congratulating North Korea on H-Bomb Test

Okay, so I didn’t laugh.

I actually CRINGED.

(Maybe I shouldn’t have put this in the humor section?)

GOG AND MAGOG

The Bible refers to the coming of this vast army in Ezekiel 38 and 39. And, I talk about those two chapters, here:

http://www.ezekielsfire.com/chapter-two/ezekiel-38-and-39-tetrad-three-and-four/

I strongly recommend that you read that, if you haven’t already.

We will one day call that World War III.

One Step Closer To All-Out War As Putin Names U.S., NATO As “Threats” To Russian National Security In Updated Defense Strategy

Well, the United States has pushed Russia to this point. They weren’t planning any of this before America overthrew the elected government of Ukraine.

Turkey’s Erdogan Praises “Hitler’s Germany” As Example Of Effective Government

The idea that Erdogan is a new Hitler – that he even THINKS of himself as a new Hitler – is beyond disconcerting. In fact, the image in the article of Hiter and Erdogan side-by-side is a bit unnerving.

They actually LOOK like each other.

The only real difference between Hitler and Erdogan is language and Erdogan is much taller.

Really. That’s it.

The Faces Of Hitler And Erdogan – Side-by-side

Comparing the two… Hitler could be Erdogan’s FATHER. OR BROTHER! They look THAT similar!

That is a VERY creepy picture.

Head of NATO state Turkey, Recep Tayyip Ergogan, says that he wants Turkey to mimic Hitler’s Nazi Germany

Erdogan has idolized Hitler, as have many Muslim countries. So, this is not a surprise.

And, just in case you might harbor pleasant thoughts about Herr Erdogan, here’s a link to a picture with Obama and Turkey’s Fuhrer.

Saudi Arabia Carries Out Largest Mass Execution In 25 Years After Beheadings Soar In 2015

It looks like there could be trouble ahead for the Saudi Royals. There are LOTS of Shiites in Saudi Arabia, and they will be looking for ANY reason to help bring down the Saudi government.

This could get very interesting, very quickly.

“Divine Vengeance Will Befall Saudi Arabia,” Iran Warns, As Global Outcry Over Execution Grows

Okay, so the question is about burning oil wells.

Will the Shiites torch Saudi wells?

Destroy Saudi oil terminals?

Sabotage Saudi infrastructure?

Hmmmm… I think that they might.

True Colors: The Reason Why Erdogan Admires Hitler’s Government

Did I mention that Erdogan seems a lot like Hitler?

I did?

Oh.

Well, he does.

It’s On: Saudi Arabia Severs Diplomatic Ties With Iran, “Does Not Care” If It Has Angered White House

More developments.

My suspicion is that Saudi Arabia is afraid, and Iran smells blood. The Saudi government is afraid of their Shiite minorities, and Iran can use those Shiite minorities to destroy Saudi Arabia.

The question is how far Iran is willing to go with this opportunity.

Mid-East Melee: Sectarian Showdown Looms As Bahrain Cuts Ties With Iran, UAE Recalls Ambassador

One important element to consider here is that Shiites represent something like three quarters of the population. The rest of the population is a mix of native Sunnis and foreigners.

And, the government?

The government is run by Sunnis – with an iron fist.

Here are the last two paragraphs of the article:

So there you have it: a full blown sectarian melee. One shouldn’t underestimate the gravity of what’s unfolding here. The region is a veritable tinder box and the events that took place over the weekend provided the spark.

Don’t forget that many of these countries are effectively already at war with Iran in Syria and Yemen. Consider also that this is likely to inspire further protests by oppressed Shiites living in the Gulf states – especially now that the five year anniversary of the Arab Spring is upon us. Throw in the fact that Iran is about to get an economic boost from the lifting of international sanctions and you have the recipe for a complete reimagining of the dynamics that shape the Mid-East balance of power.

Saudi Arabia Bans Flights, Travel To Iran

Just in case you needed to see yet another dimension to this growing conflict… here it is.

Mideast tensions soar as Saudi Arabia rallies countries to cut ties with Iran

This could be the extra gasoline that leads to open war between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Or, it may mean that Iran finds a way to inflame tensions WITHIN Saudi Arabia, leading to the downfall of the Saudi family.

Either way, nothing good will come of this.

This Just Became The Most Important Map In Geopolitics

If you want to see the Shiite/Sunni divide, well you can see it here.

Saudi-Iran crisis a rebuke for US policy

They are treating this as an ‘oops’ on the part of the US.

But, I do NOT believe this to be the case. They aren’t THAT incompetent, so I must believe that they are doing this on purpose.

The question is:

WHY?

Discovering the answer will take time. But, it will clearly lead to GOG and MAGOG.

The total collapse of Saudi Arabia is inevitable

It is looking more and more like this will play a big role in the coming of Gog and Magog. This collapse of the Arab peninsula will create a power vacuum that Gog will seek to fill.

The question is about the identity of Gog.

Keep looking at who Iran is allied with. That will tell you who Gog is.

Saudi Devaluation Odds Highest In 20 Years, Kingdom Now More Likely To Default Than Portugal

Um… OUCH.

It looks like Saudi Arabia is about to implode sooner than we thought.

By the way, in reference to the last two words in the article, I would like to point out…

…that ‘akbar’ in Hebrew means MOUSE.

SYRIA

What is going on in Syria is abominable. It is also the fulfillent of Isaiah 17. We can only watch in horror as this country is torn apart and her people killed and dispossessed.

Bombshell: Obama’s policy in Syria is to DIRECTLY support the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda

Eventually, the news is going to get too big and point the finger at too many important people, and Obama will be forced to back down.

The other interesting thing is that ISRAEL WAS HELPING ASSAD.

Did you get that?

So stop it with the antisemitism. It makes you look stupid.

Bombshell Interview: Sy Hersh Exposes The Obama-ISIS Alliance – YouTube

This is the full interview, contained in the above link.

Gay cult? ISIS leader who raped boy is excused while raped 15-yr-old is executed

Sick. ISIS is a ‘gay cult’.

Of course, it may only be PARTLY a ‘gay cult’. I don’t know. Maybe it’s a ‘gay friendly cult’, or a ‘gay rapist friendly cult’ – as in, GRFC.

Without a doubt, it is a ‘rapist-friendly-cult’, but that’s true of ALL Islam. If a woman accuses a man of rape, she will be excecuted for adultry, and the man will go scot-free.

BTW, where did we get that phrase, ‘scot free’?

I just now discovered that Scot is Norse for payment. It appears that a ‘royal tax’ was called a Scot. So, ‘scot-free’ literally means payment free.

Since my ancestry is Scotish, that must be why I don’t like ‘royal taxes’. I prefer to be SCOT-FREE!

But, I do NOT prefer ISIS to be scot-free. They deserve to be life-free – violently and immediately.

ISLAM

Islam is the devil’s tool, and it is being used by the NWO Elites to tear the world apart, so that they can remake it in their own image.

This new ‘order out of chaos’ will mark a new Satanic era, if the NWO Elites are successful. Of course, they won’t be, and they will howl in frustration when the Lord foils their plans.

2015: The Year of Anti-Christian Jihad, ‘Christians Are Allah’s Enemies!’

This, folks, is Islam.

And, Obama wants more of them, in America.

Are you up for that?

Rebel Planet Dispatch: NO MERCY, NO COMPASSION

It really IS one of the ugly truths about Islam. It is an austere and unmerciful religion. Its symbol is the sword, and their love of death is heard around the world.

Like the author, I too believe that there is an awakening among Muslims. They are beginning to see that the ‘mercy’ within Islam is hollow and a fraud. These Muslims are beginning to see that the Jesus of the Bible is real, and not the ‘Issa’ of the Qur’an.

This growing movement towards Christ in the Muslim world will enrage the followers of Islam to even greater acts of violence.

Spot The Difference: Salafist Edition

There is a reason why Saudi Arabia and the other Salafist Arab Gulf states are some of the biggest backers of ISIS.

In fact, the question really is:

What is the difference between the Qur’an and ISIS?

The answer is that there is no difference.

Grim Life for Christians in Muslim Pakistan

This is what it means to be a Christian in a Muslim country:

“Often in these cases the police take no action or, worse, side with the rapists. Christian families or witnesses are pressured to withdraw complaints.” — Sardar Mushtaq Gill, Pakistani lawyer and human rights activist.

Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five, has been on death row since 2010 because a Muslim woman, apparently with a personal vendetta against Bibi, accused her of speaking blasphemy against the prophet of Islam, Muhammad. “She could be killed by any inmate or even a prison guard,” said an official. “She was vomiting blood last month and was having difficulty walking.”

Saddique Azam, a Catholic teacher and headmaster at a primary school in a small village, was beaten and tortured by a group of Muslim teachers who resented being under the authority of an “infidel.”

Nabila Bibi, a Christian woman who was engaged to a Christian man, was abducted, forcibly converted to Islam, and forcibly married to a Muslim man.

And many, who call themselves Christian, DARE to side with the Muslims.

God will hear the cries of those persecuted by the Muslims. But, God will NOT hear the cries of those who sided with the Muslims, when their judgment comes.

MATTHEW 24:7

The Soros-funded invasion of Europe by several million Muslim barbarians of military age is not over. A million has already arrived. Millions more are yet to come.

It has already caused violence, fear and panic across Europe, and that will only increase in the year to come.

God help us all.

REVEALED: 1,000+ Migrants Brawl, Rape, Sexually Assault, And Steal At ONE German Train Station On New Year’s Eve

I am aghast at this.

What were these migrants thinking?

They are guests of Germany. They need the Germans to accept them, so that they can find jobs and make a new life in their ‘adopted’ homeland.

Instead, it appears that they are doing everything that they can to blemish the reputation of Muslims and Islam.

They are the WORST kind of barbarian:

Someone who defiles their own living space.

Video: German women report string of sexual assaults by ‘Arab and North African men’ – Telegraph

This is also another view of the above. A pretty revolting view, if I can say that.

Cologne victim of ‘African and Arab’ sex assaults describes ordeal

As the information rolls in, the news just keeps getting worse and worse. We keep going from disaster to disaster, and the rage just increases.

Germany stunned by rash of New Year’s sex assaults

And, a third view. Not good.

Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf… New Year’s Migrant Sex Assault In Every Major German City

Even MORE reports are rolling in. And, the authorities MUST realize, that for every assault that was reported, there were many that went unreported.

Cologne Mayor’s ‘Arm’s Length’ Sex Assault Advice Stirs Outcry

And, the insensitivity of the German authorities has added gasoline to the fire.

Europe is rushing headlong towards a fulfillment of Matthew 24:7 in a shockingly brutal way. It’s almost as if Angela Merkel read this passage in the Bible and said, “Ja, lassen Sie uns tun!” (Yes, let’s do that.)

Cologne Mayor Slammed For Telling German Women It Is Their Responsibility To Keep Rapists At “Arm’s Length”

Okay, some people have sheep-for-brains.

As a guy old enough to have grand children, the thought of my daughter being groped by ANYONE, makes me want to grab a shotgun. The thought of some sheep-for-brains politician blaming my daughter for being groped… well …it would make me want to POINT that shotgun and consider pulling the trigger.

Complete and utter madness from politicians with sheep-for-brains.

EU media must think they can fool everyone by not saying it was ‘Muslims’ who carried out mass sex attacks on German women New Year’s Eve

Another view of the Muslim mob that raped, molested and attacked german girls – and frankly, anyone else who happened by.

Muslim sex-mob cover-up grows

And now, Germans are realizing that there has been a cover-up of this incident, and this will make them wonder about other cover-ups.

Four days of silence at the national level made the ordeal worse for victims. Outrage over the media blackout prompted German public broadcaster ZDF to apologize on Wednesday, Breitbart London reported.

“The news situation was clear enough. It was a mistake of the 7 p.m. ‘Heute’ (Today) show not to at least report the incidents,” Elmar Thevessen, deputy chief editor, wrote on the shows Facebook page.

This is going to snowball.

Disturbing eyewitness account from Cologne: Bouncers had to protect women from muslim molesters whilst police did nothing

This is going to escalate. The guy in the video was talking about how he had to protect these girls from the Muslim mob. How sick. These Muslim thugs are creating a war – a Civil War. And, the guy in the video knows it.

GERMANY: SHOCKING EYEWITNESS REPORTS about media cover-up of Muslim attacks on police, women, and revelers in Cologne on New Year’s Eve

And, France’s Jewish population is having to live under armed guard – because of the Arabs.

Europeans Turn Against Muslims: “Behave or F— Off”

The lead picture in this story makes me want to bust heads.

We have allowed these barbarians to invade us, and I am outraged over this.

ISRAEL

No nation on the planet has suffered so much abuse and bullying as Israel.

It is a tiny country the size of Taiwan, but with a third of Taiwan’s population. And Israel lives in a sea of hatred and Islamic Satanism.

Yet, we accuse this beleaguered nation of so much evil, accusations that are completely and utterly false.

How DARE we do this!

Rebel Planet Dispatch: PAYMENT NOW DUE IN FULL- Obadiah 15

Marcel is my kinda writer. He pulls no punches, and he is ALWAYS on target.

Furthermore, I agree with what he is saying. What has happened to Israel, will not happen to those who sought her destruction.

Hoist by their own petard!

And, we all know that turnabout is fair play.

Analysis: Doctors Without Borders’ Anti-Israel Crusade

Typical. Any and all ‘establishment’ international organization is against Israel.

That’s funny. If the NWO is against Israel, then maybe you should be FOR Israel.

Think about it.

 

ONE FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE

There is one more piece, and it is probably the most important of all, but I do not have permission to name names.

Suffice it to say that a certain person has appeared on two audio programs that I respect highly. That ‘certain person‘ claims to be a Christian, while using New Age terminology. That certain person claims that he is NOT intentionally using New Age terminology.

I’m afraid that this ‘certain person‘ is lying to us.

I have listened to both audio programs where this certain person has appeared. I have listened to the arguments put forth by a good brother in Christ. And, I am convinced that the certain person is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I hope that I am wrong.

Furthermore, the brother in Christ who is sounding the alarm is being vilified for the stand that he is taking. Please pray for the ministry of this dear brother. He does not deserve the criticism that he is receiving.

 

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

35 thoughts on “A Spiritual Battle

  1. John, your piece on “A Spiritual Battle” is one of your most personal articles that I have read – and I thank you for it. For the first time, I got down to the bottom of the page (all the way down). I am an author that believes the same as you, most certainly that Jesus is the only Way. There’s a few us around that actually do. Then I noticed that you dislike writing doom-and-gloom and that hit home. For years, in my teaching and writing, I strongly resisted doom-and-gloom for the longest – yet in the last three or four years I have been moved to write more and more pointedly about the deceptions of this age, including what might include doom in the eyes of some. I have taught things with abandon that I previously avoided. I have learned even more in the process. Yet, all of this is just one step to the next – ultimately the Revealing of YHWH’s Rule in the lives of those that love Him so. My thanks for your candid writing. While our teaching does differ, it’s wonderful to see a brother throw himself into the work he has been given with such zeal. Your brother in Him,

  2. “I’m afraid that Nathan Leal is right.” Thank you John. We don’t side with men but with truth. Don’t understand how anyone with even a smidgen of discernment cannot see who is humbly doing what God called him to do, confront evil in the body, and who is pridefully and even deceptively defending himself. This is so painful, but God is separating the chaff from the wheat.

    • Hi Marie White,

      You are so right.

      Unfortunately, a lot of pain is going to rip through our churches before it’s all over. Some of us will turn on each other, before we realize that we were deceived. And, there will be a lot of heartfelt apologies given – and received.

      The good thing is that brothers and sisters in Christ are good at forgiveness, and I know that Nathan is a good brother.

      All that we must do is stand for what is right, in love, and be prepared to ask forgiveness when we are wrong.

      God bless you, Marie. Dark days ahead for all of us – and then a crown of righteousness for all who persevere.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. It didn’t take long for madness to unveil itself in financial markets this year. Am I wrong to liken it to an old building in very poor repair whose foundation is shaking to pieces just before the entire structure collapses? This can’t even be fixed. To fix it would require a prevailing morality in society which has been stripped away over a long period of time. To fix it would require the removal of the central banking system. To fix it would mean the corrupt politicians would have to be arrested along with corrupt international bankers and corporatist s. The greed and evil is so deeply entrenched it can only be destroyed. Having said that, I tend not to agree with analysts who say the fed has it’s back against the wall and doesn’t know what to do. They know and have known what to do and have been doing it. Their goal is to collapse the system not so they lose power but so they can gain total world power. That means they don’t care one dot for you and me.

    The Oregon stand off is big on my radar because the implications of this can be huge for all Americans. From the start, while I understand the anger of those involved, since the government has been stealing property all over the country, I’ve looked at this take over of this out of the way federal building as a huge mistake. They are giving the government exactly what they want. An Excuse. They will all be killed for what? So the government can say this was caused by heavily armed white Christian terrorists! None of this makes any sense and I wonder how the Bundy’s could have been convinced to go along with the plan. The building is indefensible and is basically a suicide mission. Even more sad, as Chuck Baldwin pointed out: the people of Burn, Oregon were sympathetic to the cause until this group broke ranks and took over that building. Now the sentiment has flipped against them. So, what have they really accomplished?

    I agree with you regarding this Ted/Leal doctrinal issue. When there is wrong doing, how many times does scripture name names? Often! For the past week what I’ve seen is this group of men daily trying to put out a fire by spraying gasoline on it. They won’t mention any names, which is silly because many of us were already questioning these new age teachings before Nathan said anything. Yet they spend 3 hours in a broadcast lecturing and accusing somebody, it appears Leal and everyone else who dares to question what is taught. We are not to cause division, they say. We are not to speak when we don’t have all the facts they say. But we do have the facts. The only ones handling things badly are those who think they are putting out a fire. I’m so disappointed by how it has all unfolded, since the initial exposure, I want to wash my hands of this and them and go find someone else to listen to in the evenings.

    When you mentioned the meaning of ‘scot’ I do confess I had a laugh at your expense. As a young guy Scot was synonymous with being tight fisted. Like the joke “how do you get 10 Scotsmen into a VW beetle? Throw in a nickel”. Of course, it could be an unfair stereo type like Canadians always say EH in every sentence. We all know that isn’t true EH!

    Before I go there was one other issue I’ve heard lately which is bizarre. Some say all this destruction in the middle east is happening for the ‘greater Israel project’. I can’t even take that seriously. My view is, as Henry Kissinger said a few years ago “In ten years, there will be no Israel”. Doesn’t sound like support for Israel to me. In fact the U.S. has been largely a fair weather friend to Israel at best and along with the rest of this dying world, they want Israel gone. I’m reminded that after the great tribulation, God’s judgments and Armageddon are done there will be a sheep and goats judgment. Amazingly there will be those of nations who did not take the mark but aren’t believers. And their entry into his kingdom will be determined by how they treated his brothers. His kin. Especially those Jews who came to believe in him during that time.

    Another great article John. I appreciate that you tackle issues nobody else wants to touch.

  4. Germany is now a Dhimmi nation.

    This message is so needed today to keep the Lord’s warriors from stepping out on their own leading.
    If the Lord is not leading you, fast and pray and get direction and empowerment from Him and His Word.
    The time is NOW.
    The Lord knows how lazy I am when it comes to reading anything except His word, so last year He put me up for a few days at the VA hospital (it took some faith, but praise God, they didn’t kill me) great and led me to get a book at the commissary entitled; Spiritual Warfare by Derek Prince.
    Without the Armor of God/ Ephesian’s 6 we are snared and destroyed by Satan and his minions.
    For me, I think the helmet of Salvation is also to keep me from getting a fat head.
    The pride that has destroyed so many men of god and so many ministries.
    I leave you with this verse Revelation 12:11

  5. Thanks John for your dedication to the watchman task. The cacophony of relevant information that we so desperately need is out there —and your collation of it in this manner, with the personal remarks attached are very welcoming and appreciated. Unfortunately, most of humanity is to pre-occupied with meaninglessness to see the urgency of all this but just wanted to let you know that your services and heart are not unnoticed.
    Thanks and most abundant blessing to you.

    PS the link Joe left in the previous comment re Frankies call to prayer–yup, unveils that agenda perfectly. But it will “tickle” the ears as they say. So sad.

  6. I have a request. The text of your blog shows up as gray on a white background. And when trying to pinch and expand, it does not work.
    Is there any way you can switch to black text? That will make it easier to read.
    Thanks. Keep up the good work.

  7. Thanks for this weeks installment, right on target as usual. I am right there with you in wanting to get physical, there are times my hands yearn to feel the weight of my weapons, but that is deception as you have said.
    I would like to offer you and your readers the following to lay along side the spiritual war that you so rightly point out:

    Psalm 2 (NIV)
    Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?
    The kings of the earth rise up
    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
    “Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”

    Now the second psalm is prophetic about the crucifixion
    but also I think applies to what is happening today.
    First, what are the chains and shackles
    the pslamist is talking about?
    One of the first “chains” God gives us is gender.
    Does Bruce/Catlyn Jenner ring a bell?
    Another “shackle”? marriage between
    one man and one woman. Not only are we supposed
    to swallow same sex marriage, but now all manner
    of sexual depravity and insanity; the details of
    which are far too numerous to get into here.
    We also have inarguable proof of
    corruption and treason infesting
    our government in all levels; to the point where
    it is obvious that our own government is
    trying to stir up race wars, riots and all
    manner of civil unrest.
    In the book of Matthew 22:36-40
    Jesus was asked:

    “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
    Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your
    heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
    This is the first and greatest commandment.
    And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
    All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    This is the “chain” that the enemy is trying his hardest to break
    and because many still follow God’s teaching our
    society has resisted the assault of hate and intolerance. Even the globalists say that they are fifteen years behind schedule.
    Like it or not, EVERY christian in on the front lines in the spiritual war no matter where you are. Every time you share the gospel or God’s word or pray with and for others, you drive back the darkness. Every time you do a friend or neighbor a favor, you send the evil reeling. If you just smile and make some one else’s day just a little better, you raise a large bump on Satan’s head.
    What else can we do?
    That answer can be found in Psalm 27:

    The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?
    When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
    it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
    Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
    though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

    Fear no man! Fear only God!

  8. Hi John,

    I’ve barely made it through the first part of the article, and was reminded of a poem the LORD had me write years ago called “The Battleground.” I hope you don’t mind I share.

    The soul is subject to the flesh
    difficult to escape its influence

    The price we pay
    for a few bites of forbidden fruit

    Regret is now a part of our lives
    guilt a mainstay

    Over things better left unsaid
    actions better left undone

    Sin continuing to dangle
    that tempting piece of delicious fruit

    Oh yes, it tastes good, feels good
    ahhhh…but the price, the pain

    It’s not worth it
    but our flesh remains unconvinced

    Striving for that bit of pleasure
    that bit of death, a battleground

    Where satan set himself against God
    our free will, the deal breaker

  9. Hello john from a descendent of William Wallace. I am impressed by your anointing and gift to see the truth. I understand more now how the scotch freedom lovers wanted to share their faith with their brethren and their blades with their oppressors. Our forefathers were forced as we to fight this fight and to ring the bells of freedom for all who will stand and honor our lord n savior. Its in our blood from the beginning. Being a native Texican I salute your labours and pray your Alamo will be satisfying.check out my great uncle Bigfoot Wallace and ile meet you in the Middle.

  10. Wait… there’s an interview with Martin Armstong. He says, in a nutshell, that the stock market always goes up eventually, and that it’s headed to 25,000.

    Sounds like i need to be IN stocks, not out.

    • Hi Joe,

      I have a lot of respect for Martin, which is why I will include articles and commentary from him that disagrees with my position.

      He’s a smart guy – much smarter than I am.

      However, I’m reading a body of work written by the Holy Spirit. That tells me what I believe to be a different story.

      So yes, the stock market may go up. In the short term. But, I am not willing to place bets on that.

      Remember that I used to be a player, and I did well at it and made quite a few good calls – with a few bad ones. So, I am naturally inclined to agree with Martin.

      But, not now.

      We are in the Last Days. In fact, we are almost at the last of the Last Days. Taking risks at this time is… well …I think a bad idea.

      Thank you, Joe. May the Lord guide you in your financial decisions.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

  11. Converting GDP to US$ is not a valid way of measuring a global recession. The correct way is volumes of goods and services when you compare a country to another. I offer this indirect proof that I am correct: If you think back carefully you will remember Armstrong talking about a similar error during the 1985 G5 era when he said Japanese trade of goods was misrepresented as changing hugely when really volumes did not change. Rather, the currency exchange rate moved hugely and got misrepresented when converted to dollars.

    (I did not read the zerohedge article. Anyway, I am discussing your “global GDP recession 2015” comment since you are a finance person and will enjoy this topic.)

    I also happily noted Stefan’s Christmas message. I wish Stefan would stop the vulgar segments and the Oscar Wilde sodomy promotion. I have to turn him off sometimes. He thinks he has science, genetics and epigenetics [misapplied, I think] and human-animalism theories to justify himself, or else he would change. I ran St. Augustine by him because he dealt with philosopher atheists.

    I also cringe at Stefan’s often repeated “separation of church and state” message, a mistaken notion in need of a Christian challenge. Karl Denninger did it too. I wrote to him about it. Thank-you always for your articles and news links.

    • Hi Ed Sain,

      You betray a great deal of thoughtfulness and intelligence in that short comment. Excellent.

      Yes, you are entirely correct about your global GDP figures. And, I confess to not thinking about that. So, thank you for that point.

      Having said that, on a long enough time frame, it averages out. Whenever there is a global recession, you will find that the dollar always rises in value. Furthermore, the largest share of the BDI WILL be involved in US dollar shipments – or, at least inputs to US dollar shipments.

      But, we need to be careful in thinking in dollar terms, exclusively.

      I hear you on Stefan Molyneux. Just because he says some good things about Christianity… doesn’t make him a good guy to listen to. It is a good thing that you are in there pointing out such things.

      Thank you, Ed. Very good work, brother.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

      • Thanks, John. I see what you mean about BDI (except too many ships could cause a BDI decline without a recession, but yes, this is a recession) and you are the second person I heard say the US$ (or whatever is the core currency) always rises in a world contraction. I hear Boye Hoye saying it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HcZ-IogzjA

        I think this Ann Barnhardt article will interest you. She gives me the understanding the Pope has the same mindset of Stefan, the athiest.

        Ann says, “Bergoglio is also, almost certainly, a Freemason. Why do I say that? Well, maybe you know Freemasonry by its other name: HUMANISM. Humanism is defined as: “a philosophical position that stresses the autonomy of human reason in contradistinction to the authority of the Church”. It is a diabolically narcissistic mindset.”

        http://www.barnhardt.biz/2016/01/12/lets-just-start-calling-the-diabolical-narcissist-rage-monster-bergoglio-worshipful-master/

        She is a Christian Roman Catholic about to challenge the false doctrine of separation of church and state (yay, let’s see if it is the main theme), in her soon to be released video about narcissism personality disorder of our leaders.

        I never thought to bluntly say that Stefan and all athiests, humanists, are practicing narcissism, worship of self, and of intellect. Ann says it.

  12. John, I did some research on Stefan Molyneux a few years back when he first came to my notice. I concluded that he is untrustworthy, deceitful, manipulative, and dangerous. Among other things, SM encourages people to judge, despise, and abandon the families in which they were raised. I hope you’ll research what his critics have to say about him. This essay is a good starting place and it includes links to more detailed information:
    http://www.fdrliberated.com/the-day-joe-rogan-discovered-the-real-stefan-molyneux/#

    FWIW, my perspective is that of a person with no real, enduring hope outside of Christ and his completed, perfect work. Sure, I have day-by-day short term hopes, and I keep working towards the good that I can accomplish, but (as your website observes in detail) the American nation and the world are in a severe mess that only the Lord can fully rectify. Thank God that He will do just that, in His timing.

    • Hi sister in Christ,

      I will certainly look at the article.

      You are entirely correct about no hope outside of Christ, and thus, Stefan has no hope.

      When it comes to information and analysis on non-Christian topics, I cannot limit myself to those who are professing Christians. To do so would destroy my ability to warn the Body of Christ about what is coming.

      And, since I am a rather cynical person myself, I don’t hold any illusions that Stefan Molyneux is a good person. None of us are.

      But, thank you for the information, sister. I will certainly look read and listen to as much of the article as I can.

  13. Hi John, I know this is not a relevant post but have to ask anyway… Do you ever find yourself searching for “Arizona’s” posts on other sites, because you know deep down he speaks the truth? I do, and I do believe he speaks the truth (not sure about him & God being buds tho as in like golfing buds & God tells him the “future, club & lay of the land ?” but I still believe what he says has merit.

    God bless John…. Yours truly, Lonnie

    • Hi Lonnie,

      I don’t know what to say about Arizona’s posts. I believe him to be a good brother in Christ, so I post them when he sends them to me.

      I just haven’t felt an urge from the Holy Spirit to go beyond that. However, this lack of feeling may not be an indication that the Holy Spirit ISN’T urging me.

      I just could be deaf.

      Thank you, Lonnie. I’m glad that you are treating all this seriously.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
