What a turbulent week. Chinese stock markets collapsed. The Dow Jones Industrial Index flash-crashed. Fires consumed forests and homes in the American Northwest. North Korea threatened South Korea. Another explosion rocked China – followed by two in Japan. More evil rose from the cesspool called Planned Parenthood. And then, to add insult to injury, a glitch took down Omega Shock and a bunch of other sites.
What a happy week.
It’s almost as if they decided that they couldn’t wait for the end of September to get everything started – whoever ‘they’ are.
But, before I talk about all that, I want to something else, first:
blindness – the spiritual kind

Blinded by the Past
What a difficult few days. Collapsing stock markets. Currency wars. Warehouse explosions. Threats of war. Evil and vile abortionists. Muslims rampaging in Europe. Iran thumbs their nose at the US. Warehouse explosions rock China AND Japan. More signs that the global economy is falling.
And on top of all that, a computer error caused the Omega Shock website to be unreachable for a few days.
All of that is important, and I will talk about it. But, there is something far worse:
I am truly disheartened by how ignorant we are about what the Bible actually says – and doesn’t say. And, when I show people what is written in the Bible, I am often told that it doesn’t say that. It’s like there is this mental block keeping people from seeing what should be so incredibly obvious.
In fact, over the years that I have been writing articles on Omega Shock, I have been continually blindsided by some of the foolishness that people believe. In fact, the shock is sometimes almost more than I can bear, and I am not engaging in hyperbole here. I truly am crushed by the terrible lies that are being passed around in our churches.
The 19th Century
And most of those lies came from the 1800s.
The 19th century saw the invention of the steam-powered printing press, and that was all Satan needed to get his lies spread throughout the churches. Then came radio. Then television. By the time the Internet arrived… well …it was all over.
And, all of that proves Mark Twain right:
It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain
The first lie that I stumbled over was dispensationalism. A little over ten years ago, a friend demanded to know if I was a dispensationalist. I’d never been to semitary [sic], and I had never read a commentary. So, I didn’t know.
So, I looked ’em up.
Nope. I was NOT a dispensationalist.
On the surface, dispensationalism seems okay – until you realize that they have reduced the value of Jesus Christ. In fact, I heard one famous dispensationalist claim that Jesus wasn’t the Messiah for the Jews.
What an awful, filthy and disgusting thing to say. I am sickened by such an evil diminishment of our Lord and Savior. He is the Alpha and Omega – the beginning and the end of all things. EVERYTHING in the Bible points to Him. Every discussion of Messiah is about Him. When Moses spoke of the one who was like himself, that everyone should listen to – Moses was speaking of Jesus. (Deuteronomy 18:15)
When Jesus died on the cross, He died for all who came before – and all who came after.
Furthermore, the law of Moses was a pale shadow that was not sufficient to cover our sins. But, people obtained salvation, because that law pointed to the one who would come and pay for their sins.
There. Is. No. Other. Dispensation. Than. Jesus. PERIOD!!!
Did you get that?
It truly makes me upset that anyone would deny our Lord and Savior the honor and glory that He so richly deserves! How DARE anyone do such a thing!
However, I understand that such doctrines were learned at the hands of teachers, who learned from their teachers – and on and on, until 1811. Please understand that this almost-heresy did not exist before 1800. And, it would have gained no traction without the help of the steam-powered printing press.
I received yet another shock when I found that dispensationalists refused to prepare for the coming collapse because they believed that God would rescue them in The Rapture before anything bad happened. That is why I pound the table so hard over the pre-tribulation rapture lie.
I honestly don’t care when you think the rapture is going to happen. None of us get a choice in the matter. I start caring about this when people use this false theory as a way to avoid preparing for bad times. And, if I’m not stumbling over dispensationalists, I’m getting run over by amillennialists.
How is it possible that ANYONE could ignore the fact that Jesus will return and reign upon the Earth for a thousand years?
Again, it’s not heresy, but it’s really, Really, REALLY stupid. The only way for anyone to believe that there is no Millennium is to rip out chapter 20 of Revelation.
How can you ignore something so obvious as Revelation 20?
I mean, I’m tearing my hair out here. I just don’t understand it.
Then, there are those who believe that we are in the Millennium right now. That one is another hair-tearing, frenzy-inducing thought. I truly do not understand how anyone can believe that we are ruling and reigning with Christ for a thousand years. If nothing else, we have a math problem.
None Of That Is Send-You-To-Hell Heresy
Now, none of that is actually heresy. Yes, it is something worth shouting over and getting upset, but believing in such things will not get you sent to Hell. Please let me repeat that:
You will NOT go to Hell if you are dispensationalist, amillennialist or postmillennialist.
You MUST Believe That Jesus Is God
But, there is another idea that comes out of the 19th century that I believe WILL get you sent to Hell:
Rejecting the idea that Jesus is God.
I’m sure that this rejection of the deity of Christ comes from earlier times, but we have its greatest expression in the rise of the Jehovah’s Witnesses – aka, The JWs. I hope that I am wrong in believing that this is a true and absolute heresy that will send you to Hell. But, my fear for your eternal life encourages me to warn you that rejecting the deity of Christ is to reject His death, burial and resurrection.
If you have any doubts about the truth that Jesus is God, here are a few verses:
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
– John 1:1
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
That last one should make you stop and think. If you deny Jesus, you also deny the Father. If you accept Jesus, you also accept the Father.
Yes, The Godhead Is Difficult To Understand
I understand that concept of a Godhead that is three-in-one is hard to understand – and even scary to think about. I get that. This is a very difficult idea that we must accept on faith.
But, whatever you choose to believe…
…never, Ever deny the truth and fact that Jesus IS GOD!
Your future in eternity is in question, should you deny this truth.
The Salvation Of Israel
Now that I have insulted and outraged 99% of all Christians, let me talk to those of you who are still with me. There is one more thing that the rest of us still get wrong:
The Salvation Of Israel
It has taken a while for this problem to crystalize in my mind – partly because it’s hard to see the outlines of what no one talks about. And, no one talks about The Salvation of Israel because they are still confused by teachers who were/are part of what I just talked about. Or because… well …they just don’t know that it’s important.
And to be fair, for most of the past two millennia, the subject of Israel’s salvation wasn’t important. The struggle of daily life-in-Christ was hard enough, without having to figure out the return of Israel, and their salvation. The Land of Israel was an awful place run by barbarous Muslims, so the idea of this fulfillment of prophecy was just… unimaginable.
But, the children of Israel have returned to the Land of Israel, and there are Christian Israelis sharing the gospel with other Israelis. The Body of Christ is growing in Israel. So now, the unimaginable is perfectly feasible.
But still, no one wants to talk about it.
It’s The Books
Because of all the books written by doctor this or doctor that, who ALSO don’t talk about the salvation of Israel. And those who DO talk about the salvation of Israel – are wrong.
The dispensationalists believe that Israel will go back to the Law of Moses. I’m sure that there are different nuances to their belief, but essentially they say that the dispensation of Christ will end – with the Jews returning to the old one, or some version of it.
The amillennialists spiritualize everything and claim that every reference to Israel, is a reference to us – Christians. To them, there is no need for the salvation of Israel, because all followers of Christ are Israel.
The postmillennialists believe that we are already in the Millennium, so it doesn’t matter anyway.
Those Christians who fall into one of the above, automatically don’t have any need or interest in the topic of the Salvation of Israel. Those of us who do not fall into one of the above… well …we are such a small group that no one writes books or has a loud enough voice to be heard.
The Old Testament
In fact, outside of my articles, you might never have heard of the prophecies talking about Israel’s salvation. Part of that reason lies in the fact that we concentrate on the New Testament. The Old Testament is… well …old.
Who needs the Old Testament?
Well, Paul said that we ALL need it:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
When Paul wrote that, the New Testament did not exist. Therefore he was telling Timothy to read the Old Testament.
Isaiah To Malachi
I just got done with a detailed survey of the prophets, from Isaiah to Malachi. If you want to know what is about to happen, you need to read those prophets. They are our surest guide for the days ahead.
We are already seeing Isaiah 17 being fulfilled right before our eyes. We now see the foundation laid for the fulfillment of Isaiah 19. Daniel spoke of the rise of great kingdoms, and then… the last, most terrible one.
Please. Sit down and read through the prophets of the Old Testament. It won’t take you that long, and you will learn about what is going to come over the next few years. But, you will also run into the issue that no one wants to talk about, the salvation of Israel.
When Will Israel Be Saved?
When will Israel be saved?
This subject is talked about by almost every prophet in the Old Testament. It’s not a tiny issue. In fact, the issue is completely enormous and of incredible significance to you and the people that you care about.
So again, when will Israel be saved?
Will Israel be saved at the return of Christ?
Okay, let’s work backwards over the possibility, from most ridiculous to the least:
Will Israel be saved at the return of Christ?
Nope. Not possible.
Read through all the verses that speak of the salvation of Israel. None of them are at all similar to what is described in Revelation 20 – except Zechariah 14, which comes after the description in chapters 12 and 13.
Let me also add something else that’s interesting. Jesus spoke here:
And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
Hmmmm… the resurrection of the just.
What is this resurrection of the just?
Hopefully, the resurrection of you and me.
There are only two resurrections spoken of in the Bible. The first resurrection, and the second. In the first resurrection, all those who are in God’s kingdom will rise from the dead. Those who are not, will remain dead until the end of the millennium.
The first resurrection occurs BEFORE the Millennium begins, and it’s a pretty unbelievable that God would not wish to include Israel in this first resurrection.
In fact, we have evidence in the Book of Revelation of Israel’s salvation. We see this in Revelation 12 – the woman with 12 stars – and here:
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
And no, please-Please-PLEASE do not tell me that America is Ephraim or Britain is Judah, or anything else like that. We are all gentiles. We are NOT physical children of Israel. Paul speaks of us as wild branches grafted in, and NOT the natural olive branches in Romans 11.
And, if you can read Revelation 12 and not see how a saved, Christian Israel will flee into the wilderness and is protected from the Antichrist for three and a half years… well …I’m not sure what to say. Revelation 12 is completely obvious.
Is Israel Saved During The Tribulation?
Now, is it possible that Israel is saved during the Tribulation?
First of all, Revelation 12 tells us that Israel will flee into the wilderness. So, she must be saved BEFORE the Antichrist comes. The prophets tell us that Israel is saved IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL, so Israel cannot be saved IN THE WILDERNESS.
But, there’s also something more.
Remember that the salvation of Israel coincides with the coming of this vast army led by Gog and Magog. And, God is very specific in what He does to this army and to the nations of the world:
That’s why I called my book Ezekiel’s Fire. Look carefully at the circumstances surrounding the coming of this army, it’s destruction and the fire that results – and you will see that it MUST be a solar flare of unimaginable size and power.
That solar flare will knock out electricity over most of the globe, if not all of it. It will take years for the world to recover enough to enable the Antichrist to take over. Those years will enable Israel to develop to spiritual maturity, so that the 144,000 men of Revelation 7 will be able to fulfill the task set for them. In Revelation 14, we find out that these men are virgins, and it appears that they will go out to preach the gospel – although, the chapter does not explicitly say that.
My point is that there must be a sizable number of Christians in Israel for there to be 144,000 virgin men to be sealed by God.
So, the salvation of Israel MUST be before the coming of the Antichrist, and it must be long enough so that the world can recover sufficiently for the Antichrist to arise.
But, the salvation of Israel isn’t what concerns me, in terms of your safety. God will handle Israel’s salvation. I’m concerned about you.
If the salvation of Israel comes before the Antichrist arrives, then so does Ezekiel’s Fire:
Ezekiel’s Fire will kill a billion people – at least. And, the survivors will suffer terribly. And, I want to spare you from that.
You can read about Ezekiel’s Fire from the website, or you can download it in PDF form, here:
With all the evil that is coming upon the world, it is easy to think that the Antichrist is about to arrive. But, that is not what the Bible says. The Bible says that Israel must be saved first, and it makes sense that this is true.
Ezekiel’s Fire will come before the Antichrist, and it will be God’s way to show the world, one last time, that He is God. God will show His power and His might, and so the world will have no excuse for following the Antichrist.
Please get this right. Your safety is in question, if you don’t.
Now, let’s turn to the more mundane catastrophes of the past week. I talked about them in the introduction, so I’ll get to that here.
The Fall Of Energy For Our Economy
I have been talking about this for probably three years, and I cannot stress too much how important this all is. No matter how much the talking heads proclaim how wonderful fracking is, there is no solution to our problem of declining energy. It doesn’t seem like THE PROBLEM now, but that’s because it is obscured by all the other events that make this hard to see.
We have been artificially propping up oil production by feeding it low cost debt and derivatives, but the futures contracts are expiring. And, we are running into the limits of debt financing. When the debt load collapses we’ll find ourselves unable to even fuel our economy at current levels.
This is a fundamental shift that people like Martin Armstrong and other gurus cannot track – because they are thinking in terms of finance and capital flows. But ultimately, it all comes down to:
[raw material] x [energy] x [man power] = economy
Decrease any of those three, and the economy falls. And, let’s not forget that it takes quite a bit of energy and man power to get raw material.
Worse, this fall will accelerate once confidence in how the financial system operates also begins to fall. Confidence is everything. Without it, our civilization will collapse. And, when that collapse really begins to be visible, the collapse will be deflationary.
Deflation is the fall in the amount of monetary units operating within the financial system. And, since our system creates monetary units – aka, dollars – by borrowing them into existence…
…what happens when the debt is defaulted on?
Right. The dollars disappear.
That my friends, is deflation. Debts will default. The financial system will shrink. No one will have money to buy anything, so prices will drop.
Yes, there will be inflation and even hyperinflation in there somewhere, sometime. But, over all, the collapse will shrink the system, creating deflation. And, we will all wonder what hit us:
Okay, so Iran hates Israel. They’ll be with Gog and Magog, when they come down to attack Israel. So, let’s talk about Israel.
The Bombing Of Bus 32A
When I saw one of the pictures in the following article, it brought me back to that moment in time:
It was almost 8 a.m. in the morning of June 18th, 2002. I was thinking about the article that I was going to write that day, when the sound of an explosion ripped through my apartment.
I paused for a moment to consider whether this was a sonic boom. I quickly realized that it wasn’t and went to the window overlooking Beit Safafa. I could see the shattered remains of the bus at the bottom of the hill.
This was that bus:
Bus 32A, June 18th, 2002
I’m not in that picture. When it was taken, I was down and to the right. I might even have been walking back to my apartment, by then.
It’s interesting how the mind works when faced with such awful atrocities. The above picture was taken after the bodies had been cleared away. But, I had taken pictures while they were still there. But, I didn’t see them.
I only saw the bodies in the pictures much later, when I showed them to a friend.
A Dutch friend of mine was supposed to be on that bus, but he was late getting to the bus-stop. God must have plans for him.
Nineteen innocent civilians were murdered on that bus. The 74 survivors will have been scarred for life. But, to the western media, they are just faceless numbers. And now, Obama has tried to reduce money that the Palestinian Authority owes over this great evil.
The Wall Around The West Bank
If you want to know the reason why Israel built a wall around the West Bank, that bus was one of those reasons. Israelis didn’t want to build that wall. They shouted down everyone who proposed it… until there was just one too many bombings.
I left Israel in 2006. When I returned with my wife in 2010, the wall was up and Jerusalem was at peace.
If you want to know why there is a wall around the West Bank, just look at that picture.
THAT is why there is a wall.
If you are against Israel, you are FOR Islam. And unfortunately, there are many who call themselves Christian while spewing hatred towards Israel. I call such people:
That’s right, if you call yourself a Christian, but hate Israel… well …I consider you to be mixing the idolatry of Islam with you supposed belief in Christ.
In fact, if you hate Israel… there’s a question mark in my mind as to whether you really are a true Christian.
How can you support the work of Satan and still be a Christian?
Well, I will leave that in the hands of God and go on to talk about the evils and dangers of Islam:
Here are the important last two paragraphs of that article:
It seems as if the Islamization of Denmark is really speeding up – as it is all over Europe. Muslims in Denmark and all over the continent can say anything they wish, and express their contempt and hatred for Jews and other non-Muslims with absolute impunity and no fear of any real consequences — but as soon as a Dane speaks the truth, then all hell breaks lose. Several Danish Facebook sites that are critical of Islam have even been closed down by Facebook including my the Facebook group run by Gravers, Stop the Islamisation of Denmark (SIAD).
Denmark seems determined to commit suicide, and to silence and punish anyone who dares speak out against its present suicidal policies. This is absolute madness.
(This is a MUST WATCH by Doug Hagmann. Please pay attention.)
(I wish that I could believe that Trump would do all that. I really do. But, I can’t.)
(And… the MSM refuses to talk about why this happened. And who actually did it.)
(Muslim fraud in the US. To them, crime against us, is no crime at all.)
(Sweden commits suicide.)
(Islam is a fifth column inside America. If you care about the US, then you should care about the Muslim takeover of the United States.)
(This one had my blood just boiling. How truly evil.)
(This one is interesting. Remember that the fourth beast of Daniel smashes and destroys. Well, it appears that America is doing just that, and using this mass migration. Interesting.)
Evil – Abortion
All of that is evil. So, let’s talk about that. In fact, let’s start with some of the most vile evil that surfaced over the past week:
(I never liked Pepsi. Now I know why.)
The fact that the abortion rate within our churches is only a little lower than the abortion rate outside… is… ABOMINABLE!
If you want one reason why God will judge America, you can choose this one. We have murdered our babies and still call ourselves followers of Christ. God should – and will – destroy us for this.
A Call To Repentance
But, none of our preparations will be of any use if we are not right with God. I think that Michael Snyder hit it on the head, so please listen:
Everyone, please acknowledge your sins before God and repent before it is too late. This is so important.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
(That’s a link. Click it for a discussion on preparation.)
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
