A Stage Set for War

The world is preparing for war. Some hope to stay out of it. Some push for it. Some fear losing it. And, you can tell that it’s coming because of what the players are doing to move into what they think is the best position for winning this war.

The fear in everyone’s heart is that this will be a World War that will engulf the globe. And, that’s a valid fear, since the great powers are the ones doing the maneuvering.

Unfortunately, the focus is – and will be – Israel.

She didn’t start out as ‘the focus’. She certainly doesn’t want to be the focus. But, she’ll be the focus. And, the world will be shaken by what happens.

Very few people actually want war. Most would rather get what they want without fighting for it. Although, there are some who enjoy the death and destruction that war causes. But, THOSE people are often hard to distinguish from those who are merely greedy for money and power. And, determining the specifics of what people want can be difficult.

Yes, ‘they’ want money and power. But, their geography tends to determine the specifics of what they are striving for. And, I use the term ‘geography’ in its most accurate meaning. And, I find that Wikipedia has an exceptionally accurate description of what Geography is:

Geography (from Greek γεωγραφία, geographia, literally “earth description”[1]) is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth.[2] The first person to use the word “γεωγραφία” was Eratosthenes (276–194 BC).[3] Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks an understanding of the Earth and its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be.

Geography is often defined in terms of the two branches of human geography and physical geography.[4][5] Human geography deals with the study of people and their communities, cultures, economies and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across space and place.[6] Physical geography deals with the study of processes and patterns in the natural environment like the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere.

The four historical traditions in geographical research are: spatial analyses of natural and the human phenomena, area studies of places and regions, studies of human-land relationships, and the Earth sciences.[7] Geography has been called “the world discipline” and “the bridge between the human and the physical sciences“.

 – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography

I find it interesting that the first man to accurately calculate the circumference of the Earth (he was only 10% off), would also be the one to coin the term, Geography. Unfortunately, most of what people call ‘geography’ is actually ‘cartography’.

The point is that everyone is greedy. The difference is the context of a nation’s greed, and that context is what rules the decisions that nations make to satisfy that greed. And, some nations are more greedy than others, although… normally …the amount of greed that we see tends to be the result of an opportunity to be greedy. Just because a country doesn’t appear to be greedy, doesn’t mean that they aren’t. But, let’s get back to our focus on the war that is brewing.

So, who are the greedy persons-of-uncertain-parentage that are determined to take the world to war?

The answer to that one is a lot more complicated that you might think, but we’ll start as simply as possible. With two lists of nations in two broad categories:

THE GREEDY NATIONS

The United States

Russia

Iran

China

THE FEARFUL NATIONS

Sunni Arabs

Israel

Please understand that the heart of this war has been – and always will be – greed. When Paul said to Timothy…

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

 – 1 Timothy 6:10

…he wasn’t kidding. And, THIS evil is ALL about the love of money. But, greed isn’t the whole story.

There’s also a TREMENDOUS amount of fear, especially from those nations with the most to lose. And, it’s interesting how far the Sunnis have fallen.

The United States

Anyone who believes that America is just trying to be a good influence on the world, is a moron. Since her very beginning, America has been attempting to expand her power and reach. First, within North America. Later, Central and South America. After that, she attempted to project power into Europe, Asia and now Africa.

There is no place on Earth where America’s reach is not felt. And, everyone is more than a little afraid of making America angry.

Why is America doing this?

The wealth generated by all of this power is nothing short of amazing. It has made New York and Washington incredibly wealthy. And, the fat cat bankers… WOW …have THEY been raking it in!

By making every – by now, only almost-every – currency exchange transaction in the world go through New York, America has been able to skim off an amazing amount of money from everyone. And then, there’s the petrodollar.

The Petrodollar system is THE REASON why everyone tolerates this situation. Because everyone needs dollars to buy the fuel that powers their cars and scooters, the world bows to America. And, they make sure that Americans get lots of inexpensive stuff, so that they can get the dollars for the fuel that they need.

Think of it as America becoming the slave master of the world. And, ANYTHING that shrinks this system of slavery will make fat cats in New York and Washington HOWL.

Four years ago, I wrote a series of articles on this, here:

(http://www.omegashock.com/2014/06/24/orders-from-riyadh-part-1-the-birth-of-the-petrodollar-system/)

I rounded it all out with a ShockCast and summary, here:

(http://www.omegashock.com/2014/06/28/weekend-shockcast-deeper-into-the-petrodollar-and-war/)

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Deeper into the Petrodollar and War

That is the core of The Empire, and America will do ANYTHING to keep it. The problem is that there are other greedy so-and-so’s who also want a piece of the pie.

Russia

For most of Russia’s history, she was mostly interested in achieving borders that could help her defend herself. Russia is incredibly flat, and Russia’s enemies have traditionally been able to advance quickly and easily into Russia. So, Russia has a legitimate need for mountains and oceans on her boarders. And, she has them.

The problem now, is that Russia doesn’t produce much that the rest of the world wants, except oil, natural gas and weapons. (And, rocket engines.) That is a big limit to Russia’s ability to become wealthy.

Furthermore, the US has proclaimed herself as an enemy to Russia’s desires to prosper. And THAT is a huge threat. So, think of Russia’s actions as a result of both greed AND fear. They want to make money, but they also know that the morons in Washington want them dead.

Now, do you remember the point that I made about Russia seeing the Middle East as a part of it’s ‘natural’ hegemony?

Here is what I said last week:

Заголовок презентации шрифт Europe 20 pt – Verona_2017_presentation.pdf

https://www.rosneft.com/upload/site2/attach/2/Verona_2017_presentation.pdf

This is the powerpoint slide pack from the presentation that Igor Sechin, CEO of Rosneft, made in Verona, in October, 2017. And, when you go to slide 14 and 16, you’ll see how Russia views the Middle East. They consider the Middle East as a vital objective for dominance.

It’s all about oil.

And, if they can’t get control through diplomatic means, they will get it through military means.

I found a mention of Sechin’s presentation, here:

https://www.thecairoreview.com/essays/russias-new-energy-gamble/

And, you’ll find more in that article. But, the main thing to take away from all of this, is a heightened interest in the Middle East. A VERY heightened interest.

Now, take what I said there, and add this quote from an article that you will see again in the research:

It is from this perspective, that Russia’s renewed interest and intervention in the Middle East must be understood. By consolidating all three energy-producing regions under its leadership, Russia can be a true equal to China in shaping the new Eurasian system. Its interests lie now more decisively in organizing a common political will for the core energy production region, than in recovering ‘old yearnings’ about being a part of Europe.

‘The Biggest Player in the History of the World’
https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/05/01/biggest-player-in-history-world.html

That, my friends, is greed. Plain and simple. Russia sees the opportunity for power, and it’s taking it. But, they’re trying to do it as cheaply as possible, and that means allies. Lots of them.

Iran

Iran and Russia share the Caspian Sea, and they have a rapidly growing relationship of convenience. Iran need access to foreign markets, and Russia can give it to them – for a price. And, Iran seems willing to pay that price.

Iran also has another need, the destruction of Israel and the United States. The Mullahs in Tehran need a raison d’etre – a reason for being. At one time, it was enough to oppose the Shah. Now that they are in power, they have a pressing need to justify their existence.

For them, justifying their existence means destroying Israel at all costs. And no, I am not engaging in hyperbole in any way.

Who do you think started the quaint tradition of ‘Jerusalem Day’ – the last Friday of Ramadan?

That’s right, the Iranians. And, they have gone on to claim that the Mahdi will not return unless Israel is destroyed, first. So, this has become a sacred duty, as well as a way of staying in power.

The other thing that the Iranians want, is access to the Mediterranean Sea. Access to the Med is a big deal – for trade, as well as for ‘power projection’.

China

The other country that wants access to the Mediterranean is China. Since they don’t want their trade routes to go through Russia, they are stuck with having to thread their New Silk Road through the areas south of the Caucasus Mountains.

That means going through Iran and Syria – and maybe Turkey. So, China will make the most of any opportunity for an alliance with Iran, and for any rebuilding efforts in Syria – once the war is over.

However, China would prefer that others do their dirty work in this region.

The Sunni Arabs

Then, we have the fearful countries. And, the Sunnis are terrified of Iran, and now Russia. In fact, they are so terrified, that they are willing to make peace with Israel. It’s that bad.

The problem is that they are resolutely incompetent in the art of war. So, they need Israel to help them out. And Israel is ready to help, for her own reasons.

Israel

This is where we get to the core of the issue, and I’m truly sorry that it has taken this long.

Israel is afraid, and has every reason to be. Iran has made it clear that the complete annihilation of Israel is a non-negotiable requirement. And, Iran has invested a tremendous amount of her economy into the effort to destroy the only rational country in the Middle East.

That’s why Israel has consistently attacked Iranian targets within Syria. And, as the Syrian civil war winds down, Israel must increase her efforts to dislodge Iran from Syria.

Israel knows that ANY Iranian presence in Syria will be used as a forward base for war with Israel. And, up to now, Israel had a relatively free hand in destroying any Iranian presence in Syria, that they could find. But, that is about to change.

Russia has promised to ‘sell’ Syria the one weapons system that Israel fears the most:

The S-300 Anti-Aircraft System

The only system more dangerous to the Israelis, is the S-400.

During the Yom Kippur war, in 1973, Israel lost 25% of her air force in the opening hours of the war, to surface to air missiles (aka, SAMs). Israel cannot allow a repeat of this situation.

The only reason – aside from the Hand of God – that Israel has survived the wars that she has fought, is due to the Israel Air Force. By being able to dominate the sky, Israel was able to defeat vastly superior enemies. But, the S-300 threatens to end Israel’s ability to achieve air superiority.

I cannot stress enough the need for Israel to destroy those missiles before they become operational. If Israel does not, then Iran will have the defensive ‘umbrella’ that she needs to establish bases in Syria, supply advanced weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and launch attacks into Israel with little fear of retribution.

That cannot be allowed, and the world will not understand all that, because the mainstream media won’t help anyone understand all that.

This is why the next war in the Middle East is inevitable. Russia WILL supply those missiles to Syria. Iran WILL use those missiles as a shield. So, Israel WILL attempt to destroy those missiles at any cost.

Israel’s history provides no other option for Israel. None.

And, I do not see Russia delaying this shipment.

Iran, Russia and China will do their best to take advantage of this situation. And America will do the same. The ones who suffer the most will be the Sunni Arabs, Israel and the Syrians.

Isaiah 17

It will lead to the destruction of Damascus and the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. Unfortunately, Isaiah 17 foretells this:

The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.

And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.

 – Isaiah 17:3-4

Gog And Magog

It will also lead to something far, far more destructive:

Gog and Magog.

THAT alliance is growing. Iran, Russia, Turkey and the Central Asian Republics are binding themselves closer and closer together. We only need Somalia/Sudan and Libya to join them, for the prophecy laid out in Ezekiel 38 and 39 come to fruition.

And, if you think that this doesn’t pose a threat to YOUR personal safety, think again. Because along with Gog and Magog, comes something that I have called Ezekiel’s Fire.

THAT, my friends WILL KILL YOU.

The preparations for that fantastic solar event are being made, as we speak. And, the result will be death by thirst, starvation and violence, for anyone and everyone who does not have easy access to water, a dependable source of food and a community to defend them.

Will you be ready when Ezekiel’s Fire arrives?

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

Nevada Supremes Order LVPD to Release Info, 2182 – YouTube

THIS is interesting.

Why has the Las Vegas Police Department been dragging their feet over releasing the evidence from this shooting?

And then, Bill raises the point about the numbers of Republicans that are resigning. There are a very large number of them, and some in Congress are claiming a fear of assassination.

I find that to be interesting and deeply ominous.

Oil Hedge Fund Manager Andurand Says $300 Oil ‘Not Impossible’ – Bloomberg

I am continually surprised at the reluctance that people have to actually look at reality.

It’s that Flat Earth Mentality that I’ve been talking about. I see it in churches. I see it in finance. I see it in economics. I see it in those drivers that insist on accelerating towards a red light. I certainly see it in Flat Earthers, and I see it in this quote:

Pierre Andurand, one of oil’s most prominent hedge fund managers, said the current reluctance of energy companies to invest in new production meant $300 a barrel was “not impossible” within a few years.

Why are energy companies to ‘reluctant’ to invest in new oil wells?

Because the oil that they are finding is harder and harder to find… there’s less of it, when they find it… and …it’s more expensive to extract.

THAT is PEAK OIL, kids. And, we aren’t doing anything about it.

How to Win an Argument With Flat Earth Conspiracy Theorists – VICE

The Daily Star had an article about another moron who believes that the Earth is Flat. However, I refuse to post articles from The Daily Star, since THEY post pornography and highly sexualized images, and I will NOT have ANYTHING to do with that. PERIOD.

The Daily Star is a disgusting and awful news organization, and they should be boycotted.

Dirtbags.

So, when I went looking for an alternative to that article, I found this one.

Of course, you CAN’T win an article with a Flat Earther, because Flat Earthers aren’t interested in the Truth – just like Preterists, Communists, Democrats, Atheists, Evolutionists, Muslims, Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Pretribbers, anti-Semites, and a HOST of others.

So, to you Flat Earth Morons (FEMs ??), either show me a picture of ‘the edge’ of the Earth, or shut up. And, I have a cousin who is an Air Traffic Controller down in Antarctica – although, currently back in the US.

My cousin can tell you that there’s no ‘EDGE’.

This article will also prove that the Earth isn’t flat.

But, like I said, the ‘Love of the Truth’ exists in the hearts of fewer and fewer people these days. In fact, Paul speaks eloquently about this time and this era:

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

– 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12

Now, will you go to Hell, if you believe that the Earth is flat?

Of course not.

You’ll go to Hell for other reasons. And, not having a love of the Truth, is a sure way to get to those other reasons.

So, to those Flat Earther morons who persist in their desire to believe that the Earth is a disc, being carried about on the back of a turtle… you are in danger of believing any number of stupid and foolish things.

My hope is that you wise up, before you fall for something that will get you damned to Hell.

Seriously, the mark of a True Christian, is a love of the truth. Without a Love of the Truth, you cannot become a Christian. Without a Love of the Truth, you cannot see Christ. Without a Love of the Truth, you cannot find – or stay on – the Narrow Way that Jesus spoke of… that leads to Life.

So, love the Truth and stop being a moron.

Bill Binney: It’s next to impossible communicating safely, NSA know our weaknesses

Governments around the world are working hard to find ways to monitor, predict and then control their citizens. Every government. Without exception. And, those governments with more money are able to accomplish this more easily than other governments.

When you think about it, The Mark of the Beast is just such an effort. The only difference between that awful future and now, is that our current batch of governments is trying to spy on us and manipulate us without your knowledge.

They don’t want to spook you into doing something rash like… I don’t know …demanding that Congress slash their budgets. They would HATE to have their budgets slashed. Their howls of outrage would be heard around the world.

So, don’t do that, if you don’t like to hear howling.

Me?

I just LOVE to hear such howls. It’s the finest kind of music to my ears. The more, the louder , the better.

The other interesting thing, is that monitoring and control is very, very easy. The only reason why they aren’t doing more of it, is that they’re government workers. Governments, by definition, don’t have the sharpest employees.

Why work for the morons at the NSA, when you can have better pay, better working conditions and more freedom – working in Silicon Valley?

I worked for the government, once. I’ll never do that again. Ever. I would rather die. I kid you not.

But, with surveillance being so easy, even numbskull government workers can do it. And, of course, the government has help from Google, Facebook and others.

The bottom line is that there is no way that you can hide your communications. It’s just not possible – at least for the average person. So, don’t kid yourself.

They know where you are.

They know what you are doing.

They know why you are doing it.

The only ray of hope that I can offer is that Ezekiel’s Fire will come BEFORE the Antichrist arrives. It’s a bleak hope, but it’s something – for those with the will to preserve themselves and their families.

How utterly sick and twisted. Zuckerberg is a disgusting dirtbag.

Facebook colludes with “anti-Trump” media to censor news | Ezra Levant – YouTube

How DARE he do this?

EPIC IRONY: Eric Holder’s Firm Enlisted By Facebook To Investigate Bias Against Conservatives

Oh great. Facebook hires left-wing Democrats to see if there’s a bias against conservatives in Facebook. Amazing.

Starbucks Has Censored Me for Mocking Them – YouTube

This goes right along with Facebook’s increased suppression of conservative media content. Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter and any other mainstream social media content provider is clamping down on ANYONE who is conservative, or who deviates from the DNC/Homosexual line. If you disagree, you will be silenced.

I guess the question shouldn’t be who is corrupt, but who ISN’T!?!

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll – Rasmussen Reports®

This demonstrates one thing and one thing only:

The Propaganda Power of the foul and evil mainstream media.

Their unrelenting torrent of lies and half-truths has corrupted the thinking of America. And, this has nothing to do with supporting or disagreeing with Donald Trump.

This is about Truth and the ability to get access to it.

The insanity that grips America should scare everyone. And, that is not hyperbole. Just look at the destruction of America’s relationship with Russia. Look at the enabling of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Look at the debate over illegal immigration. Look at the promotion of insane sexual values.

These are all insanities produced in America and thrust out into the world, and these incredible insanities are a direct threat to the stability of the world.

I can hardly believe it myself, but I have to believe it – since I see the direct effects of it, here… in Taiwan.

Nearly half of all Americans support job guarantee | MSNBC

Here is yet another insanity, created by the education system and promoted by the foul and evil mainstream media.

Look, we’ve all been there.

Unemployed and not knowing what will happen to you, if you don’t get a job before you lose your house, your car and even your family. I get that, and I hate it with a passion.

I’ve been there, and I’ve felt all of that.

But, this socialist mentality that has swept through America is the same mentality that will give rise to the Antichrist.

The Antichrist will promise everyone a job. He’ll promise all the food, housing and entertainment that you want… and THAT is the same mindset as 47% of America.

Think that through.

If you want to push back against the coming the Antichrist, then you need to get rid of Socialism, everywhere that you find it.

‘The Biggest Player in the History of the World’

As I watch China create the prototype for the Antichrist system, it is disturbing to see that China is positioning herself to be THE power in the world.

Xi Jinping is THE single most powerful man in the world. His power and control are completely unprecedented. And, his ascent to power would have been unimaginable just twenty years ago.

Xi (pronounced ‘she’) has done more, in less time, with less violence, than any other man that I know of. It’s as if something dark and powerful was backing him – although, there’s no evidence of that, in any way.

Here’s a quote:

And here is the rub: the world which Xi envisions is wholly incompatible with Washington’s priorities. Xi is not only more powerful than any predecessor other than Mao, he knows it, and intends to make his mark on world history. One that equates, or even surpasses, that of Mao.

Lee Kuan Yew, who before his death in 2015, was the world’s premier China-watcher, had a pointed answer about China’s stunning trajectory over the past 40 years: “The size of China’s displacement of the world balance is such that the world must find a new balance. It is not possible to pretend that this is just another big player. This is the biggest player in the history of the world.”

The year 2021, marks the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party’s founding, and Xi clearly intends that in 2021 China will showcase the achievements of its first centenary goals. By then, China expects to be the most powerful economy in the world (it is already there – on a purchasing power parity basis), and an emerging world class power – both in political and military terms.

Now, the article is more about trade and economics – which is China’s strength. But, you’ll need to remember that the Book of Revelation speaks of the power of the Antichrist being all about ‘trade and economics’.

The Mark is about the ability to ‘buy and sell’ – in addition to identifying you as someone who isn’t in alliance with God.

Am I saying that China is ‘The Dragon’ of Revelation?

I’m not, and I can’t. The Bible doesn’t say this. But, I AM saying that China is laying the groundwork for The Beast System that will be ruled by the Antichrist.

Now, do you remember the point that I made about Russia seeing the Middle East as a part of it’s ‘natural’ hegemony?

Here is what I said last week:

Заголовок презентации шрифт Europe 20 pt – Verona_2017_presentation.pdf

https://www.rosneft.com/upload/site2/attach/2/Verona_2017_presentation.pdf

This is the powerpoint slide pack from the presentation that Igor Sechin, CEO of Rosneft, made in Verona, in October, 2017. And, when you go to slide 14 and 16, you’ll see how Russia views the Middle East. They consider the Middle East as a vital objective for dominance.

It’s all about oil.

And, if they can’t get control through diplomatic means, they will get it through military means.

I found a mention of Sechin’s presentation, here:

https://www.thecairoreview.com/essays/russias-new-energy-gamble/

And, you’ll find more in that article. But, the main thing to take away from all of this, is a heightened interest in the Middle East. A VERY heightened interest.

Now, take what I said there, and add this quote from this article:

It is from this perspective, that Russia’s renewed interest and intervention in the Middle East must be understood. By consolidating all three energy-producing regions under its leadership, Russia can be a true equal to China in shaping the new Eurasian system. Its interests lie now more decisively in organizing a common political will for the core energy production region, than in recovering ‘old yearnings’ about being a part of Europe.

And ‘political will’ is Xi’s project too: Whereas once Mao’s Cultural Revolution tried to wipe out China’s ancient past and replace it with communism’s “new socialist man”, Xi has increasingly portrayed the party as the inheritor and successor to a 5,000-year-old Chinese empire brought low only by the marauding West, writes Graham Allison, author of Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’s Trap? Thus the Party has evoked past humiliations at the hands of Japan and the West “to create a sense of unity that had been fracturing, and to define a Chinese identity fundamentally at odds with American modernity”.

Finally, Xi has pledged to make China strong again. He believes that a military that is “able to fight and win wars” is essential to realizing every other component of China’s “rejuvenation”. America has more military ‘structure’ than China, but Moscow has technologically better weapons – but China too is catching up in this respect with the West fast. The direct strategic military co-operation between China and Russia (China stood behind Russia militarily as well as politically) was evident in the recent US and UK infowar thrust – Skripal and chemical weapons in Syria – against Russia. It acts as a deterrent against US military action undertaken against either state.

Russia and China are directly involved in the rise of Gog and Magog, but it is China that is laying out the foundation for the system that will be used by the Antichrist.

China doesn’t want to rule the world – at least, not like the morons in Washington. But, China DOES want to keep increasing in prosperity. They will want to destroy any barriers to that prosperity. Of course, that’s a path that will eventually lead to world domination and rule, but it’s a bit different than the path desired by the megalomaniacal persons of uncertain parentage that are attempting to create a ‘New American Century’.

 

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3

11 thoughts on “A Stage Set for War”

  1. I found a new way to amuse myself. In a world with so little justice, it is somehow immensely gratifying to see liars and thieves get caught red-handed and in some cases punished. Some of the comments on the 2nd one are amusing as well. Apparently porch pirates, who steal boxes delivered to other people’s homes and don’t even know what’s in them, is epidemic in some areas. Fortunately I have not yet had to contend with this but I sympathize with those who have.

    And now for the philosophical component ….. apparently sin will still be possible during the millennium, if at the end of it the enemy is able to recruit a huge army of rebels. But Jesus will be the king of kings, and ruling with a rod of iron, even before that final battle. I have many questions about all that, most of which probably cannot be answered yet ….. Mr. Little and other readers, whatever illumination you have is most welcome ….. surely they will have the bible at that time. Maybe even with additional books, recording events after Revelation??? But even if it’s the version we know now, how could the rebels not know they’re being deceived into a fatal scam?? Surely a FEW of them would have read it, if only to know better what they’re up against. I wonder what kind of inescapable justice Our Lord will implement when He takes His throne. And after a thousand years of it, why would anyone think they can exempt themselves …. more puzzling still, it sounds like the wicked dead are not resurrected for life in the millennium; they are resurrected to judgement after it. So we’ve already weeded out all but the saved at the BEGINNING of the millennium ….. except, what happens to the few survivors of the tribulation, both saved and unsaved? Didn’t it just about kill off everyone, especially the wicked? The few wicked that may survive into the millennium, do they multiply until there is once again a huge number of corrupt individuals capable of being deceived into rebellion against God, even when they have enjoyed the benefits of His rule for 1000 years? Since raising an army against God does not happen overnight, and multiple nations participate in this …… there must have been a long trail of sin leading up to this ….. and, why would there be a need for standing armies anyway, during the millennium?

    • Hi DRG,

      Those two links… AWESOME! I would LOVE to go after phone thieves and porch pirates. Here in Taiwan, you can leave your purse out and it won’t get stolen. And, they regularly do that. Several times, I’ve seen a woman leave her purse intentionally – and/or her cell phone – in her chair while she goes in to see the doctor, intending to come back for it, afterwards.

      It’s one of the many reasons why I love Taiwan.

      Now, on to your more serious question. And, I’ve thought on this a lot.

      First of all, just to clear up a misconception that many have… The Mark will be voluntary, and you must be old enough to take it. After all, it will be a part of the worship of The Beast. For some reason, you cannot be given The Mark without your direct permission.

      This means that there will be children too young to take The Mark. And THEY will survive to enter into The Millennium.

      I know that this is hard for people to get their heads around, but it’s pretty clear, once you think it through.

      Now, as for those who rise up against God at the end of the Millennium… I completely agree with you that this is an utterly incomprehensible idea. But, let me point you to the children of Israel who wandered in the desert for 40 years. What utter morons.

      Here, God did all these miracles. He demonstrated His willingness and ability to take care of them, but they still rebelled against Him. How utterly insane, stupid, imbecilic, and… and… words fail me.

      Even today, with the personal indwelling of the Holy Spirit – which those ‘desert wanderers’ did not have – we find Christians acting with the same level of stupidity. How DARE a follower of Christ, ‘pick and choose’ what parts of the Bible they wish to believe and what parts they wish to reject.

      WHAT?!?!

      It’s one thing to have an ‘error of interpretation’, but to outright reject a part of the New Testament?

      Okay, ’nuff said about that.

      The point is that stupidity and insanity are endemic to human nature.

      As for ‘weapons’ and ‘armies’. Almost anything in civilian life has a military use. Why any ‘army’ would think that they stand a chance against the God of Heaven, is beyond my comprehension. I find myself mystified at that thought.

      All that I can say is that Satan is a master at manipulation.

      Oh, and no ‘standing armies’ needed. They can be built up pretty quickly. Just look at World War I and II. America didn’t have much of a ‘standing army’ at the beginning of the war, but was up and running in a very short amount of time.

      Ultimately, I trust God that there is a very good reason for all of this, no matter how insane it seems. Unfortunately, we’ll probably need to die – or survive through to the Millennium – to find out.

      But, in the mean time, what a mess.

      Thanks, DRG. That was another excellent and thoughtful comment.

      Yours in Christ,

    • Dear DRG,
      I would like to take a crack at answering wherefore does the army against God originate at the end of the Millenium?
      In my mind there are three factors to consider, and John touched on one of them.
      The Light shines in Darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not. After witnessing the miracles of God in the plagues against Egypt and the exodus through the Red Sea- while crumbs from the manna from Heaven was still on their lips- while the pillar of cloud stood there- the children of Israel said “this Moses fellow is gone-make us Gods.” While Jesus sits on the throne in the Temple- there will be those who say- that is not God. That is some apparation, it is an evil that says that is is good and so forth. Remember- the Devils’ greatest trick is convincing people that God doesn’t exist.
      Next- the wicked watcheth the Righteous, and seeks to slay Him. There are those with the heart of darkness who simply cannot control their urge to fight God- to kill Him if they could. Satan wishes to kill God. He is a murderer from the Beginning. He and his angels (and Cain) were in the presence of God and still sought to destroy him and his works.
      Lastly, there are the deal makers. I think of John McCain. They know they have chosen darkness, but they think it will be different for them. They are special. They are Satan’s own, and will have air conditioning and champagne in Hell. They were always able to skirt the consequences here, and believe they will do so again.

      I have often considered these things, and I have another wild thought to throw into the mix: There is a Godly principle that he who would be first, shall be last. Satan made the ultimate attempt to be first- to replace God. So, I believe in Hell he will be last- the lowest in the lowest Hell. That, I believe is the meaning of Genesis 4:7- that Cain will rule over Satan.

      I have a website and a calling to unbelievers. Not those who don’t believe in God, but don’t believe in anything- at all. A lot of Millenials. Omegashock is meat, my website is milk. Most of your readers would find it boring. I explain simple things, like the reason God made the Devil, the existence of the Spiritual realm, etc. If you know anyone who is dubious about God and such- let me try. I have four Millenial kids, and have spent much of my career working with this group. I have some insights into what they believe, and what they will hear.

      It was a wonderful question DRG and I hope my answer helps.
      God bless you John for your answer and all you do.

      Beware false prophets!

    • Satan will be bound for 1000 years, however, the people living through the Millennium will still have a sin nature and they won’t be able to claim the devil made them do it.

  2. Hi John,
    Another interesting week. There was another strike on an Iranian target late last week which caused a 2.6 magnitude quake. Not sure who did the strike though. Below are links to my two sources, INL says it was Israeli F15’s who swapped out their IFF trasnponders and the other is Amir T. saying it was American F15’s with Israeli laser guidance. Not sure which to believe.

    https://youtu.be/JU3WyhOoli4

    https://youtu.be/7plNBB2kSMg

    Both seem to agree this strike took out a cache of heavy rockets meant for use against Israel, possibly nuclear capable?

    We know the Gog/Magog war will happen, but will we steer clear for now or not? Can’t tell! The same tactics used on the North Koreans may work but, the problem is Kim wanted to live, not so sure about the Iranian leadership.

    Now there is one other thing I must caution you and all who read this post.
    Be on the look out for unexpected punn-intrations of the blogisfere!
    Example: One hundred white rabbits lined up shoulder to shoulder all take one step back, what do you call that?
    Answer: A receding hare line!

  3. Thanks for all the good work John. I start every Friday morning reading Omega Shock and I really appreciate the humor section. Otherwise my blood pressure just might make my head explode… I found out last week that Chuck Missler went to be with Jesus on the first of May. God is calling plenty of great men home. I’m prepping like crazy and praying even crazierly. Yes, that’s a new word.

  4. Hi Chris,

    Yes. Those three chapters. Powerful.

    They are an incredible warning against those who think that they can grab Jerusalem for themselves.

    As an aside, I think that the reference to Joshua in chapter three might be the reason why some persist in claiming that Jesus is actually Yehoshua instead of Yeshua. Unfortunately for them, a careful reading of that chapter clearly indicates that the ‘Joshua’ being referred to is a regular man.

    Okay, as for the ‘Peace Plan’… I’ve been wondering when they would attempt this. And, losing those neighborhoods is no great loss. They have no Jewish presence and really aren’t a ‘structural’ part of Jerusalem, anyway. And, the residents of those neighborhoods have a tendency to steal your car.

    I looked at the original reference to this idea of the Old City becoming an ‘international area’, in Ma’ariv. Ma’ariv is pretty left-wing, but it’s also in other places. This was a part of the original ‘partition plan’ of 1947, and they’ve been trying to ‘internationalize’ Jerusalem ever since.

    They keep trying this, and they keep failing. So, I don’t expect this attempt to succeed. Israelis won’t give up the Old City, and the Palestinians won’t, either. However, Israel will make a show of considering it, to give the Palestinians time to reject it.

    The Palestinians are completely predictable. (cue quote from Abba Eban)

    It has been a blessing to see that Israelis – even the secular ones – still feel a strong connection to the ancient city of Jerusalem. I mean, it’s in their national anthem, Hatikvah – ‘The Hope’.

    But, this attempt is a sign that yes… we should brace ourselves. A renewed focus on Jerusalem tends to lead towards war. And, it’s not like we aren’t seeing other signs pointing in that direction.

    That was an excellent comment, Chris. And, I’m sorry that it took so long for me to get to it. The last few days have been… interesting.

    Yours in Christ,

  5. Hi DRG,

    Excellent link, and it will be in for Friday – Lord willing.

    And, I’m with you on how perplexing all of this is.

    Why would ANYONE want to fantasize about raping a child?

    (And, it’s rape, no matter how much these foul fiends from Hell want to fantasize that it’s ‘consensual’.)

    I just don’t understand it. And, I don’t want to understand it. I just want everyone who indulges in such fantasies to die.

    And yes, I really, really want them dead. Even if they just ‘fantasize’ about ‘consensual sex with’ a child. They should have an opportunity to repent, truly, from the heart. But, those who will not repent should be killed as quickly and efficiently as possible. As publicly as possible.

    Unfortunately, God has not given me – and us – permission to do this. But, if God were handing out such ‘permissions’, I would be first in line. And, I would camp out in that line, for as long as it took, to get that permission.

    Oh, and here’s an irony. Satan wins when the pedophiles fantasize about raping children. And, he wins when we take the law into our own hands to punish those pedophiles. Satan has all the bases ‘covered’ – except the one covered by Jesus Christ.

    God said that vengeance was His. And, I know that God is better at it than I will ever be. So, I will leave it to Him.

    Excellent comment, DRG!
