Fear, Desperation and Greed

The World held its breath as the heads of the Federal Reserve met. And, we all breathed a sigh of relief as they chose not to raise interest rates. But, if you knew the fear at the heart of this decision you wouldn’t feel relief. From now until the Lord returns, fear, desperation and greed will be the watchwords of our society.

This is why Muslim migrants are flooding into Europe. This is why China fortifies tiny atolls in the South China Sea. This is why Russia sends weapons to Syria. This is why ISIS fights to the death. This will be why America will one day declare Martial Law. This will be why Gog and Magog will come against Israel.

My hope is that you will prepare and not join the world in this Fear, Desperation and Greed.

Fear, Desperation and Greed

I usually start these articles on Thursday, so that I will have enough time to write thoroughly and completely on something that I believe that you need to know – and so that I can make it on time to the Bible class that I teach on Friday nights, here in Taipei. However, I didn’t do that for two reasons:

  • I wanted to know what the FOMC would do at 2 p.m., Thursday (2 a.m., my time)
  • I was hopping mad about something said by John MacArthur

The Fed Blinks

Since I am human, like the rest of you, logic doesn’t always dictate my actions. All kinds of anticipations will push me this way – or that. And, my anticipation – or better, apprehension – over what the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) would do about interest rates… well …it gave me pause.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what the FOMC does. But, its decisions are a kind of communication to the rest of us useless eaters. In this case the FOMC was communicating to us that the financial collapse is coming, and they do NOT wish to be blamed for it.

Only once the financial collapse can be blamed on someone else… only THEN will they raise interest rates. Fear and desperation were the emotion of the day, yesterday, and you need to understand that. In fact, you need to internalize that understanding, so that you will go out and prepare for what they fear and are desperate to avoid.

Unfortunately, when you get to my research for the week, you’ll find that it’s almost too late for preparation. But, ALMOST TOO LATE isn’t the same as IS TOO LATE. When the government closes the exits to America – and when the cities collapse into violence and death – THEN it will be TOO LATE.

But, please understand that it will be too late, when you see the violent collapse from your window. Please act now.

Hopping Mad About John MacArthur

A good friend of mine asked about something that finally had reached his attention. He wanted to know about John MacArthur’s claim that taking the Mark of the Beast will not keep you from going to heaven.

Unfortunately, the claim is true, and every time I contemplate the evil of such a thing, I become too angry for words. The book of Revelation – in chapter 14 and chapter 16 and chapter 20 – is extremely clear about what will happen to you, if you take the Mark of the Beast.

John MacArthur made this claim many years ago, to the outrage of many Christians, and he has refused to repent of that statement. His staff has double-downed on it, and his supporters are waging a guerrilla campaign against those who try to shed light on this statement.

I have repeatedly had to recreate links to videos that John MacArthur’s organization and his supporters have forced YouTube to take down. This is just further evidence of the corruption at the heart of what MacArthur is doing. In fact, whenever I see such ‘guerrilla warfare’, I double-down on my own response to this great evil, and that’s what I did yesterday.

The following is a part of the section of Ezekiel’s Fire that I am currently editing. The link to the full section is here:


And, the core of the issue is here:


John MacArthur And the Mark of the Beast

One day, in July of 2014, Steve Quayle posted a link to a page on Nathan Leal’s website, watchmanscry.com. It was a part of his ‘Show Notes’ for his interview on Hagmann & Hagmann Report. Nathan was talking about the coming ‘Mark of the Beast’, and when I got to the end of his post, I saw him say this:

Why is all of this happening? It is a demonic campaign to desensitize our culture in preparation to accept the “mark” of the beast.

And then, I dimly remembered a controversy over a pastor saying something about taking the Mark of the Beast – and still being able to go to heaven. In fact, I couldn’t quite remember his name. It was John-somebody. John… …ah yes… …John MacArthur.

The Evidence

Yes, that was it. John MacArthur.

So, I did a search for “John MacArthur” mark of the beast. In fact, that link is essentially the same Google search that I did that day. If you do that search again, you will not find the video that I originally discovered, since John MacArthur’s organization keeps trying to stamp out all videos that reveal what he has been saying.

This is just another sign of the corruption within John MacArthur’s organization.

But, I did find this video, and it’s a good one – from Pastor David Williams:


YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/EuOnT1AOtBI

note: I have found that someone keeps trying to take down videos that criticize John MacArthur. If that occurs to the above video, you will know what happened. It is a shameful thing for anyone to try and hide John MacArthur’s heresy.

I clicked the link and listened to the video. When I got to the main point, it took a moment for John MacArthur’s words to sink in. Then, the shock hit:

He said WHAT?!?!

John MacArthur actually said that you can take the Mark of the Beast and not go to Hell. I was so horrified, so shocked… well, I just don’t have words to adequately express how I felt.

Proof Of Abominable Heresy

This is a true abomination.

Here is a preacher – that is revered by many – openly denying the words of the Book of Revelation. Here is the relevant verse:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 14:11

You can parse that verse any way you like, but when you say “and whosoever” you are making an and/or statement. You are not saying that just both will go to Hell. You are saying that either one OR BOTH will go to Hell.

To put it another way, there are two conditions that will send you to Hell:

  • worship the beast and his image
  • receiving the mark of his name

Just ONE of those will send you to eternal punishment. Doing both is just icing on the cake.

THAT is the syntax of this verse in English. It’s even stronger in Greek:

καὶ εἴ τις λαμβάνει τὸ χάραγμα τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ.

Transliterated, it says:

…and if anyone receives the mark of the name of it.

If you want to look at it for yourself, the link is here:


If you want confirmation, notice in Revelation 20:4-5 that NO ONE who stands before the Lord in the First Resurrection has taken the Mark of the Beast. Not a single person in the first resurrection has the Mark of the Beast. And, as I said earlier, there is only ONE Resurrection of the Just. I quote this verse later on in the article, but you can click the link if you can’t wait.

Another Video

Now, since Phil Johnson and other supporters of John MacArthur are trying to take down those videos that expose the evil that John MacArthur has spoken, let me bring you another video that they will have a little more trouble taking down.

This is from Pastor Jacob Prasch:

On the Mark: A Word to John MacArthur Part 1

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/efHvkZ32RZk

That was/is a powerful indictment of John MacArthur. And, I can tell you that I would have been just as passionate in my response. In fact, I’m not sure that I would have been as self-controlled.

This stance by John MacArthur is pure heresy, and he will be judged by God for this vile evil. He has put the eternal lives of Christians in jeopardy by this evil teaching.

My prayer is that MacArthur will repent of this evil before it is too late. I really do.

John MacArthur In Text

For those who want the text of this abomination that John MacArthur said in the video, you can find it here:


Here’s the relevant question and John’s answer (about a third of the way down the page of the above link):

QUESTIONER: Oh, my question is in regard to the latter half of the Tribulation period, when…when men will be required to have the mark of the beast in order to buy or sell. My question is once the person takes the mark, is there possibility of Him coming to Christ?

JOHN: Yes, I think, you know, in the seven-year Tribulation coming in the future, we’re gonna get into this, so probably a week from Sunday night, maybe this Sunday night, maybe a week, I’m not sure. But the Tribulation is a seven-year period, right? The Rapture of the church, seven-year Tribulation, then Christ returns, sets up His Kingdom. Now, in that seven-year period, really two things happen. God begins to judge the world in…with a series of holocausts; and, at the same time, He begins to redeem His people Israel; and in the process of this, the antichrist establishes his rule; and in order to function in the economy of the antichrist, you have to take the mark of the beast. The mark being the number of a man, Revelation 13, 666. Six is the number of man, right? Seven is the number of perfection, and man always falls short of perfection, 666, always sixes, never seven. So the number man, and apparently what’s gonna happen, you take the mark on your hand or on your forehead; and we’ve talked a lot about that, you know, that…that that’s kind of the computer situation. We’re now moving fast toward the time when we’re going to have to do everything we do by cards and by numbers and all of that, and those number…the thing about a card that’s a problem is you lose it, and they’ve already devised systems to put the number on your hand and on your forehead, and you go through a scanner and, you know, that’s how you buy and sell. It’s automatically deducted from your bank account.

Now, the question is, if you’re living in the Tribulation period, and you take this mark, in other words, you identify with the beast’s empire, will you still be able to be redeemed? And I think the answer to that is yes. Yes, otherwise there would be no salvation of anybody in the end of the Tribulation; and you’ve got to have the salvation of folks in the end of the Tribulation. You’re gonna have the Jews redeemed. You’re gonna have, according to Revelation chapter 7, “An innumerable number of Gentiles redeemed, so many they can’t even be counted across the face of the earth.” So I don’t think the fact that someone takes that is a sentence to…to permanency anymore than you being a part of this world system once in your life means you have to be a part of the system all your life. Well, especially when 144,000 don’t start their ministry till the second half.

QUESTIONER: Yeah, that’s true, yeah.

JOHN: That’d make it a little tough.

(I have put in bold the relevant text.)

Now, in case you are wondering whether John MacArthur has backtracked on the above, think again. Here’s a member of his staff, Phil Johnson, doubling down on it:


My answer to this foolish article is that yes, God COULD forgive the sin of taking the Mark of the Beast. God COULD do that.

But, He is NOT going to.

Please get this right. God CAN forgive this sin. He really can. But, He’s not going to. It’s His choice, and He’s warning us ahead of time that this is a line that you had better not cross.

Why John MacArthur Believes This

Now, why does John MacArthur preach AGAINST the words of Revelation 14:11?

He doesn’t have a choice.

Wait… He doesn’t have a choice?

Yeah. He’s stuck with this position because it is dictated by a fraudulent theory that he passionately believes in:

The Pretribulation Rapture Theory

If he had said something else, like ‘you cannot go to heaven if you take the Mark of the Beast’, he would have had to tear up the Pretribulation Rapture Theory AND Dispensationalism. In fact, he’d have to tear up decades of false teaching, and he’s NOT going to do that.

The Pretribulation Rapture Theory Requires It

Now, I see that you have a question, so I’ll ask it for you:

Why does the Pretribulation Rapture Theory require people to take the Mark of the Beast before getting saved?

Well, MacArthur DOES know what the Bible says, and here is the key point:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

Revelation 13:16

That means that The Beast makes everyone take the Mark of the Beast. Everyone. (Well… except for those who are already saved.) And, since he believes that the Rapture took away all the saved people before this moment in time… well, all that’s left are those who will take the Mark of the Beast.

With me so far?

So, according to the Pretribulation Rapture THEORY, since everyone takes the Mark of the Beast…

this means that everyone saved during the Tribulation has ALREADY taken the Mark of the Beast.

John MacArthur acknowledged this when he said:

Now, the question is, if you’re living in the Tribulation period, and you take this mark, in other words, you identify with the beast’s empire, will you still be able to be redeemed? And I think the answer to that is yes. Yes, otherwise there would be no salvation of anybody in the end of the Tribulation; and you’ve got to have the salvation of folks in the end of the Tribulation.

It’s logic. And, I understand that.

Two HUGE Problems

But, wait… Houston, we have a problem… There’s this verse:

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

Revelation 16:2

And then, there’s this verse (which I linked to earlier):

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Revelation 20:4-5

You CANNOT fit those verses in with John MacArthur’s interpretation of Revelation.


Because, the wrath of God would be poured out on those who are saved, because all the saved people would ALSO have the mark. But, the second verse that I quoted condemns John even more.

Revelation 20:4-5 is describing the first resurrection, and not a single one of the people in the first resurrection has the Mark of the Beast on him/her.


Not a single person who stands before the Lord in the First Resurrection will have EVER received the Mark of the Beast. PERIOD.

Pastor David Lankford

I could go on and on about this, but I think that Pastor David Lankford says it best:

Pastor David Lankford & Steve Quayle – Twisting the Word of God

YouTube shortlink: http://youtu.be/nfLNUCXVzYM

You can find more of Pastor Lankford’s work on his website:


MacArthur Chooses Poorly

This Pretribulation Rapture Theory has put John MacArthur in a difficult position. He’s stuck between this fraudulent theory of the Rapture…

…and the Bible.

What did he choose?

Well, he chose the theory.

Does this sound like a teacher that you should be following?

Not to me.

Now, there’s another dimension to this. It’s bad enough that John MacArthur is preaching abominable heresy. We have two more that are doing the same.

John MacArthur OUTRAGE: Take the Mark of Beast, still be saved. False Teaching

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/iU3tjRq6tX4

So, now we add to more voices to this heresy – Brannon Howse and Jimmy DeYoung.

I do not wish to feel upset about John MacArthur, but he has chosen evil over good. This doesn’t mean that there is NO good in John MacArthur. He preaches that Jesus is God and that faith in Him will bring you salvation.

But, he also preaches lies, lies that will condemn you to Hell – if you follow them.

No. They aren’t just lies. They are heresy. And all who preach heresy are heretics. So yes, John MacArthur is a heretic, and I hate the fact that I must say that. I really do.

So, if you listen to John MacArthur, stop. If you have his books, throw them out. If you are reading his ‘annotated’ Bible, go out and buy one that isn’t ‘annotated’.

I am truly grieved that someone like MacArthur would deliberately put the spiritual lives of our brothers and sisters into such great jeopardy. It is truly an abomination beyond my ability to adequately describe – at least, not without resorting to book-length text.

So, let me stop here and move to the research of the past week.

This Week’s Research

There is a lot that happened, and it’s still happening. I hope that what you read here spurs you on to prepare for yourself, and those that you love.


These are the extraordinary articles and videos that are required reading – or watching – but don’t fit in the other categories.

Mecca crane collapse `act of God`: Engineer

This might belong under the category of ISLAM, but that category speaks to the negative impacts that Islam has upon our society. The event described will have more of an geopolitical impact – specifically upon the power structure in Saudi Arabia in general, and the House of Saud in particular. It might even be considered an omen of the fall of the House of Saud, among Sunni Muslims. These things can quickly become self-fulfilling prophecies. Interesting.

Strange September 18th Warning Letter Goes Out To Parents From School Near Philadelphia – Do They Know Something We Dont Know?

I’m not sure what to make of this. You will be reading this on the 18th, so it will be obvious to you whether something is happening, or not. It’s hard not to get spooked when you see something like this.

EXCLUSIVE: Kathleen Willey slams Hillary’s new sex assault survivors ad

Ah, the beautiful irony of Hillary Clinton supporting the plight of those women who had been sexually assaulted – except, for those women who had been sexually assaulted by her husband. Those assaulted by Bill get NO support.

I shudder to think of Hitlery getting into power.

The Last Time This Happened Was… Never

Of course, there’s ANOTHER factor that he failed to include – the decline in overall energy production. That will add even MORE force to our downward decline.

No. Apocalypse. Soon.

I’m not sure how accurate these ‘predictions’ are. But, um… Hillary as president?


Jeffrey Brown: To Understand The Oil Story, You Need To Understand Exports

This is the kind of information that I’ve been looking for. It will be hard for some to follow the conversation, because Jeffrey Brown throws around terms like capex – which is capital expenditures. But, the bottom line is one that will hit all of us.

The amount of crude oil available for sale on international markets is declining. Yes, there is more gasoline available, at the moment because of fracking and natural gas by product. But, Crude is far more than that, and it’s declining. This means trouble on top of all the other troubles that we are experiencing.

Attackers sever fiber-optic cables in San Francisco area, latest in a string

I’m not quite sure what to make of this, other than someone – or a BUNCH of someones – is engaging in sabotage.

Is this preparation for major attack on US infrastructure?

Is this just a disgruntled employee that’s taking revenge upon his employer?

I don’t know.Time will tell.

Do Political Systems Ever Work? | Armstrong Economics

This is why the best political systems are those that are small and easily overthrown by a true democratic process.


I find this idea of four turnings to a generational cycle to be both interesting and unsettling, at the same time. Interesting, because it accurately depicts the history that we have already traversed. Unsettling, because we are not in a ‘Fourth Turning’, and the description that Straus and Howe leave us with is apocalyptic. And, the author of this article says this:

It is highly unlikely we will have a resolution to this Crisis period for at least another ten years, so if you think the worst is over you are badly mistaken. If the climax is somehow accelerated like the Civil War, it will likely result in bloody wars, with a horrific death toll. The five year lull can be viewed as the world passing through the eye of an immense hurricane. There will always be ebbs, flows and lulls within a 20 year long Crisis, as seen in previous Fourth Turnings.

And then, the author ends with the idea of the rise of a ‘Grey Champion’ who will unite everyone and fix all problems. Unfortunately, the Bible speaks of this ‘Grey Champion’, and we will one day call him:

The Antichrist

All Economic Hell Is About To Break Loose – YouTube

One of my favorite people to listen to, is James Wesley Rawles. Ex-military intelligence. Writer. Survivalist. Very very level-headed. He also loves God and believes that it is our faith in Jesus Christ that is most important and that will see us through.

Someone like that is worth the time to listen to what he has to say. And, when such a down-to-earth kinda’ guy says that things are about to fall apart, pay attention.

This is not a drill.

Red List News – Episode 23 – YouTube

Listen to what Dave Hodges had to say unnerved me. Dave is someone worth trusting. If he says that his intel source is good, then I believe him. And, what his source said should make you pay attention. Things are beginning to happen. And, Dave cited an article that he wrote from Dec 25th, 2012:


If Dave cites THAT. Well… the Elites may have pulled the trigger on the next phase of their globalist plans. I am where I need to be. I hope that you are too.

This Is What Yellen Said About Negative Rates Coming To The US

The only way that the United States can effectively push negative interest rates, is through MASSIVE repression. You must eliminate cash. You must lock people in to the banking system. It would be an awful situation.

And now, someone on the Federal Reserve actually proposed going negative on interest rates. THAT is unsettling.

Here’s Why The Status Quo Is Doomed

DE-growth is the future, and it spells death and destruction for people all over the world. Here’s a quote from the article:

The world is shifting from unlimited growth to limits and Degrowth. The Status Quo that is completely dependent on growth is doomed–an implosion that no amount of reform can stave off.

Too many people have been saying that we can engage in growth-everlasting. Everybody believes that, which means that many will die.

Satanic Priest for Bohemian Grove Blows Whistle on White House (Names Names) – YouTube

I’m always skeptical about those who self-proclaim to be wizards, high-priests of Satan, etc. So, I listen for elements in a person’s dialogue that indicate self-promotion, or embellishment. Josh Tulley gave this ex-Satanist plenty of room to go down that path, but Zachary King – the guy being interviewed – didn’t ‘take the bait’.

Furthermore, I detect authenticity in Zachary King account. Of course, that merely means that he believes what he’s saying. Belief doesn’t actually mean truth, but it does confer genuineness to an account.

This interview is certainly worth listening to, even though Josh is a bit too loud and Zachary too faint.

Here is the home page of Zachary King:


Homosexual Activists Tell Kim Davis: ‘We Will Kidnap Your Husband, Tie Him Up And Force Him To Watch Us Raping You. We Will Burn You Alive.’ Civil Unrest Is Coming To America – Walid Shoebat

I stand with Kim Davis and would have done exactly what she did – were I in her position. I truly hope that you feel the same way.

Unfortunately, many ‘Christians’ do not feel the same way, and do not stand with Kim Davis. It truly grieves me to see that.

And now, this sister in Christ has become a ‘lightening rod’ for truly vile evil. If you want to know how awful, vile and disgusting the evil within the homosexual movement is… look no further than Kim Davis. So, let me reiterate what I said last week:

Kim Davis for President!

If we could have a president like her, then the judgment upon America might be averted.

The Rutherford Institute :: Public School Students Are the New Inmates in the American Police State

This one had me hopping mad. Here’s the quote that REALLY got me going:

For instance, a Virginia sixth grader, the son of two school teachers and a member of the school’s gifted program, was suspended for a year after school officials found a leaf (likely a maple leaf) in his backpack that they suspected was marijuana. Despite the fact that the leaf in question was not marijuana (a fact that officials knew almost immediately), the 11-year-old was still kicked out of school, charged with marijuana possession in juvenile court, enrolled in an alternative school away from his friends, subjected to twice-daily searches for drugs, and forced to be evaluated for substance abuse problems.

WHAT a WONDERFUL country. In fact, so wonderful that I am glad that there is a planet between me and it. If you have a child in a school like that, then it is time to rescue your kids and get OUT.

You know, stuff like this is just one more reason why I thank God that I’m in Taiwan, and not the United States. Seriously folks, the Taiwanese don’t stand for this garbage and will tear down a police station, if they tried. But, not in America.

The American Disease: I Deserve To Get Away With Anything & Everything

This really is the American disease. And, it is NOT attractive.

I often ask people what the first sin was, and they almost always respond:

When Eve at the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

Of course, that’s not true. The first sin was pride – when Satan exalted himself against God. And, pride has ALWAYS been an abomination to God.

Obama Is Employing An Army of Psychologists to Fundamentally Transform the Minds of All Americans | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

Dave Hodges is such a great guy, and here’s a quote from the article:

Whenever I meet an Obama supporter, and they are getting harder to find, I ask that person what Obama has done to improve their life and the lives of their family? I have yet to hear an answer that makes any sense.

Dave then takes us through Obama’s connections to the CIA, and then his implementation of CIA mind control. If I didn’t have evidence of direct CIA involvement in the media and their extensive and ongoing work on MKULTRA… I might have thought that Dave had gone crazy with this article.

Unfortunately, Dave Hodges is as sane and sober as anyone could wish.

A Major Bank Just Made Global Financial “Meltdown” Its Base Case: “The Worst The World Has Ever Seen”

I’ve put China in a separate category, but it looks like it is about to ‘merge’ with the Financial Collapse category. You don’t really need to read the article. Here is all that you REALLY need to know…


“Of all the possible risk scenarios the meltdown scenario is, realistically speaking, the most likely to occur. […] If China’s economy, the second largest in the world, twice the size of Japan’s, were to lapse into a meltdown situation such as this one, the effect would more than likely send the world economy into a tailspin. Its impact could be the worst the world has ever seen.”

Polny’s 2020 Gold Forecast

I have SOME confidence in Martin Armstrong, because his track record is so thorough. Bo Polny’s track record is shorter, but he’s also younger. And, for BOTH Armstrong and Polny, I do NOT trust their technical analysis. I’m very skeptical about such things, because all that it is really doing is creating a mathematical formula to explain mass psychology.

They could be right, but I have reservations.

Having said that, I believe that there appears to be truth to what they are saying, which is why I’m providing Bo Polny’s website for you to examine. Both Polny and Armstrong predict what I consider to be horrifying outcomes soon, and I definitely agree that something like that must come soon. The question really only revolves around WHEN – not IF.

There is no reason for the US to be transporting military vehicles painted in UN white, with UN markings. Painting and marking could have happened at the destination – if they were being shipped abroad. But, the fact that they are being shipped, within the United States, already painted… indicates to me that there is a high probability for them to be used within the US. It’s not a certainty, but a probability.

Iran Side Effects

I got this from Alexandra Devereaux in Uruguay, and I thought that it was great satire about the horrendous deal that America is making with Iran.

It Begins: Europe Flooded With Reports Of “ISIS Terrorists” Posing As Refugees | Zero Hedge

Barack Hussein Obama has ordered his regime to take in at least 10,000 Syrian Muslims in the next fiscal year

Just look at the pictures. Do those look like desperate civilians, fleeing violence? Or, do they look like young men with military training?

Listen to what Islamic State jihadis posing as Syrian refugees are chanting on a train in France

Ah yes, the sounds of gratitude for the help that they are receiving:

“May Allah make orphans out of their children” cries out the man in the train while the crowd say “Amen”.

“May Allah make it difficult on their women”.

“Allah give victory to Islam everywhere”.

“Allah give victory to our brethren in Palestine”.

“Allahu Akbar, Alahu Akbar … there is no god but Allah and the martyr is beloved by Allah”.

THAT is what they were chanting in Arabic, out of gratitude for being given food, security and housing in Europe.

Jews, once again, are fleeing Europe, not because of Nazis, because of IslamoNazis, posing as ‘immigrants’

MUSLIM INVADER NEWS: All the news that the sharia-compliant Western media don’t want you to see

These guys are just marauding barbarians.

With Muslims masses comes mayhem in Germany

I just find it fascinating that Islam is fulfilling Matthew 24:7 all by itself. You don’t find this level of violence from any other group of ‘refugees’.

Articles: Europe’s Refugee Crisis: Violence, Demands, and Muslim Conquest

It’s just amazing to see these thugs expect to be treated like kings – and then BE treated like kings. We really have lost our minds. We really have.


Since Islam is the religion of terrorism, the title of that article is extremely appropriate. And, the contents… even more so.

Federal Data: U.S. Annually Admits Quarter Of A Million Muslim Migrants

This flood of Muslims is creating enclaves that are antithetical to the American way of life. The question that we should ask the elites:

What are the limits?

Of course the limit is not defined by numbers, but by character. When America is no longer American, then the purpose of Muslim immigration will have been accomplished.

These Muslims Are Not Immigrants, They Are Colonists With Bad Intentions | Dave Hodges

What insanity. 75% of these economic migrants are young, fit men of military age. And their invasion has been orchestrated by the NWO Elites. How utterly insane.

Afghan-Kosovo Mafia Migrant Smuggling Ring and More Refugee Chaos in Macedonia (Video)

Another front in the Muslim invasion of Europe: Macedonia. Here’s a quote from the article:

According to the sources in the Interior Ministry, the police attempted to let women and children and families first, so they can get to the train station and avoid the riots, fights and clashes between the migrants that where happening at the Gevgelija train station. That was not well received by the migrants since 80% are military capable men, many of them former fighters in the Syrian Civil War. They attempted to break into the country by force, starting a riot and clashing with police. Afterwards when the situation calmed down and most of them were allowed in, some of the migrants were saying with laughter to the local media that they can’t be intimidated by tear gas since they were using tanks, machine guns, bombs, artillery in the war in Syria. Tear gas is joke to them.

Did you get that? These ‘migrants’ are trained fighters out of Syria.

Do you think that this will end well?

Refugee Crises At Dangerous Tipping Point As Hungary Deploys Army, Germany Loses Patience

This is getting worse and worse, but notice where these refugees are coming from:


That’s right. They’re coming from Turkey, and Turkey is the chief cause of the conflict in the first place. How utterly ironic.

Thousands of Islamic refugees headed for US; experts say ‘arm yourselves’ – National Law Enforcement

Muslim invaders discard identity papers, buy up fake Syrian passports to get easier asylum in Europe


There are concerns that Turkey is becoming a center for the production of fake Syrian passports. According to the EU’s border agency, Frontex, it’s common knowledge among migrants that it’s easier for Syrians to be granted asylum within the EU. Dorian Jones has more from Istanbul.

Why am I not surprised? Counterfeiting is a national pasttime in Turkey. I saw a lot of it when I was there.

If the Muslim invasion of the West has just started to get your attention, this video will catch you up on how Europe is being transformed into an Islamic caliphate right before your eyes

This is Islam at work. Every one of these people are either immigrants to Europe, or children of immigrants. And the video is a collage of videos from before 2013, from BEFORE the massive wave of Muslim migrants.

Poll finds almost a third of Americans would support a military coup

This should NOT be a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention how the average American views the government. This tragectory leads straight towards the crackup of the United States – which may be EXACTLY what the elites want. A powerful, united America would make it impossible for the New World Order to take over the world.

GREECE: Police struggle to control the angry mobs as Muslim invaders use the Greek island of Lesbos to get to Germany with its generous welfare system

Where are they?

This Satellite Image Leaves No Doubt That Russia Is Throwing Troops and Aircraft Into Syria

This is a good article that I picked up via Steve Quayle. However, the most important paragraph in the whole piece is this one: What Russia has done, however, is make it clear that it will not let Assad fall. He can’t win, but Russia won’t let him lose. That dooms Syria to what looks like endless war, as Assad fights to the last man. There are those who see Syria as a quagmire for Putin, a kind of matched pair to our own folly in Iraq; just as Washington collectively saw Afghanistan as payback for Vietnam. I am not so sanguine.

THAT, my friends, is Isaiah 17. The only question is about how long this will play out. A year? Two years? Three?

bellingcat – Sighting of R-166-0.5 signals vehicle affirms inflow of Russian military into Syria

It appears that we may have anywhere from a battalion (400 to 800 soldiers) to a brigade (1.5k to 4k soldiers) of Russian armor/armored infantry operating in Syria. Right now, most observers believe that these Russian troops are more interested in defending their assets in Tartus and Latakia.

DoD Admits US SpecOps “Boots On The Ground” In Syria

Oh right. We’re ‘fighting’ ISIS. Right. I’m sure… um …that’s what… we… um… MIGHT do. On thursdays. After lunch. Maybe.

So, Russian and American soldiers. On the ground. In Syria. Isaiah 17, here we come.

Oh, and four hours after the Department of Defense accidentally lets that one out, they issue a press release asking us to ignore their Freudian slip:



You just can’t run a decent conspiracy anymore, without someone slipping up and letting the ‘cat out of the bag’. I mean, those poor NWO Elites are just having one problem after another, trying to keep their movements secret. Poor guys.


Assad Says Europe Is Responsible For Refugee Crisis: “If You’re Worried About Them, Stop Supporting Terrorists”

I feel sorry for Assad. His father, Hafez, was an evil piece of work. Just look up the term ‘Hama Rules’, to get a picture of how amoral he was. And, I do not forget the the constant shelling of Israel in the sixties, his attempt to invade Jordan in 1972 and his support for the most insane terrorists on the planet.

As much as I grieve for the dead and injured at the hands of CIA-trained terrorists, I also know that there is an element of ‘just desserts’. Or, to put it another way:

Sins of the Fathers

I don’t want Syria and Assad to pay for the evil of Hafez al-Assad. But, they had the chance to right the wrongs and start over with a clean slate. They chose not to.

However, this doesn’t change the evil of the US State Department, the CIA, Turkey and the Gulf Arabs in their training and logistical support for the terrorists commiting genocide in Syria. Yes, Syria will be destroyed. It will be judgment from God. But, God will not forget the evil done by America, Turkey and the Arabs.

Obama spends $500 million to train 5 anti-ISIS fighters

You just can’t make this stuff up. Either the Pentagon is run by the dumbest idiots on the planet, or the money was siphoned off into black operations budgets – as in ISIS, black operations.

Assad Goes On Offense, Bombs ISIS “Capital”, Deploys New Russian Weapons

Assad is losing the war in Syria, but he got a new ‘shot in the arm’ from Russia. And, he’s using these new weapons to push back against ISIS. This will not end well, but at least the Syrian government has an extra bit of confidence.

Here’s an article on the same subject:



Islam has become Satan’s weapon to destabilize the world. He has been using Muslims in this way for 1400 years, and he is using them today.

How sick.

Maybe they just don’t like being American?

The Arab States and the Refugees

Just in case you DID NOT get the hypocrisy of Arab countries in the Middle East, here’s a quote for you:

This crisis has exposed the abject failure of the EU, the UN, the OIC or anybody else to criticize the bloated nations of the Gulf with even a tiny fraction of the abuse they pour daily on the only democratic state in the Middle East, Israel. It is a repetition of the ongoing Palestinian refugee crisis, with the Arab states refusing to give jobs and citizenship to Palestinian Arabs over decades, keeping them in refugee camps and laying the blame on Israel. Is it surprising that the Arab world is still on the steady downward course it embarked on in 1948?

Oh, but wait. It’s all Israel’s fault. I forgot about that.

The Fantasy Islam of Ingrid Mattson

I just LOVE Taqqiya. It makes Islam and Muslims just so warm and cuddly. Of course, it will kill you, but it will make you feel better, as you die.

Here’s a quote from the article:

Fantasy Islam: A game in which an audience of non-Muslims wish with all their hearts that Islam were a “Religion of Peace,” and a Muslim strives to fulfill that wish by presenting a personal version of Islam that has little foundation in Islamic doctrine.

Why Do Muslims Flock to The “Evil West”?

If Islam is so wonderful, and Islamic countries so exceptional… why do Muslims flee such countries to the ‘hated’ West?

Here are three paragraphs from the article:

Millions of Muslims are trying, through dangerous ways, to reach the borders of a civilization they have historically blamed for all the world’s evils, including in their own countries’.

Muslims in this part of the world view the Christian West as “evil;” yet they know Christian lands are the most decent places to live economically and politically. Wealthy Arab states rigidly turn their back on the plight of fellow Muslims who are in need of a helping hand; and Islamist hypocrites blame it all on the West.

Sadly, no one questions why “West-hating” Muslims go West… or why non-Muslims should pay the price for exclusively intra-Muslim wars and the wave of migrants they create.


The following articles point to the coming alliance between Gog and Magog – and Iran. The growing alliance between Russia and Iran should be unsettling.

Iranian troops join Russians in Syria fighting

Every time you see Iran and Russia operate together, so closely, that is another step forward towards the coming of Gog and Magog.

Russian Moves in Syria Widen Role in Mideast

Yes, this article is about Syria, but when you look more closely, you see the growing cooperation and friendship between Russia and Iran. This growing friendship and cooperation is leading directly to the fulfillment of prophecy.

Putin Accuses World Of “Using Terrorist Groups” To Destabilize Governments

I would have put this into the SYRIA section except for this point made by ZeroHedge:

[The Assad Regime] must remain in place if Putin intends to protect Gazprom’s iron grip over Europe’s supply of natural gas.

If that is true, then it is precisely the reason why Russia will come down and attack Israel – to stop her from selling natural gass to Europe.

We’ll see.

Right. The only country outside of America that memorialized the names of each person who died on 9/11.

But, notice WHO has absolute control over the Temple Mount – ISRAEL. The rest of the world wants to ban Jews from the Temple Mount, but Israel defies them all.

This might be better included in the section about Gog and Magog – because I believe that THIS will be the most important casus belli for Gog and Magog to come down and attack Israel.


Police gird for Temple Mount violence Friday as unrest persists

This upsurge in violence in Jerusalem is laying more of the foundation for war in the Middle East – and it is EXACTLY what the Palestinians want. Islam truly is an evil and vile religion.

Here’s an important quote from the article:

The violence began Sunday when police, acting on a tip from the Shin Bet security service, raided the mount and found pipe bombs and other improvised weapons, apparently prepared in advance for an organized riot.

At least it wasn’t a bomb.

It makes me sick, to think of what this evil and revolting man will do – when he speaks before the UN later this month. And, one of the many things that grieves me is the suffering among the Palestinians that this man will cause. He LOVES the suffering of the Palestinians, because that suffering gives him power.

And THAT is all the awful news that I have for you this week.

  1. Great article but you forgot the kitchen sink ! Just kidding. But you did forget Carson cornering Trump at the debate forcing him to go along with the lie that vaccines are ok. Carson is an idiot, and Trump was tired, out numbered, not informed enough about it.

    Anyways … I think, ( based on MANY dreams visions and prophecies from MANY people … that The ( NEW, ) Confederate States Of America will be one of the 2 countries that defy antichrist. Iceland might be the other. What do you think ?

    • Hi Josey Wales,

      I’m afraid that all political activity in the US is a part of a captured operation. Should the United States fracture and break apart, the Elites will control each of the fragments. Any ‘Confederate States of America’ will be a rehashed and whitewashed version of what was broken apart.

      Please remember that there are no political solutions to spiritual problems.

      Thank you, Josey.

      Yours in Christ,

  2. Hi John,
    In Amos3;7 and joel 2 and acts 2:17 God tells us that he will warn us thru dreams and visions. Mena lee grebin, Glenda Jackson and Rebecca sterling all saw that we do not have another election. Maurice sklar was shown that the euro falls and the dollar falls then we get a new currency. John paul Jackson and Lindsey Williams was shown about a derivative panic. David Wilkerson was shown that Italy or Greece will default then 2 to 3 weeks later mexico will default. When mexico defaults then the banks are closed for a short time to stop a bank run. When the banks reopen there will be capital controls. I think by what I have read that a derivative problem occurs and that set the countries to default. the us government to get out of the derivative mess excepts a new currency. Shane warren was shown that he saw a sign that said” we want our entitlements”. When this new world currency comes into effect the government has to keep a balanced budget. They do this by cutting social programs. food stamps, social security, welfare, Medicaid , medicare, disability etc. When the checks stop coming then the riots begin. Protesters are taken to fema camps. Mr Obama goes after guns and declares martial law. he suspends the constitution and the election. Sept 23rd is the 70th jubilee. Patricia Green was shown that Mr Obama will sign a pact with the devil on that day and that God’ judgement will not be held back after that. I don’t have to tell you about the implications of CERN. Just thought I would share what I have been reading. Thank you for your work.

    • Hi d ames,

      I have heard and read many of those dreams and visions, and I treat them seriously. The fact that they describe events that I believe to be likely is very unsettling.

      Thank you for sharing that, D. Very ominous reading.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Mena lee grebin–listen to her 2, hour long segments with Rick Wiles, google can find it for you.

      she gives herself away with about a dozen non biblical statements. and the fact that Rick didn’t seem to pick up on any of them concerns me.

      The most obvious in my opinion: she says God said to her “only ten percent of those that call upon my name i know” or, “actually know me” anyhow, the bible says that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

      David Wilkerson.. yes i’ve heard his testimony, its from 1984 iirc. greece defaulted but puerto rico did not, as he said they would 2 weeks after.

  3. John McArthur’s heresy has spread. I heard Brannon Howse of Worldview Ministries talk about it the other day–accepting the mark of the beast during the tribulation. He parrots McArthur’s position exactly. How terrifying!
    Blessings and thank you for your wonderful newsletter.

  4. Morning John Little, I came across this sorry video of John MacArthur awhile back… I contacted his ministry directly – there was no reply to my inquiry… I then contacted two different radio stations about the video and asked them to look into it since they ‘air’ his programs… they didn’t… I even talked about it in my Sunday school class (there are well over 100 people in that class alone) and there was dead silence… the church that I sometimes attend even has the pre-tribulation ‘position’ as a part of their ‘statement of faith’ printed right on the ‘hand-out’ they give you at the door….
    I’m convinced that the vast majority of the Americanized Christians have bought into this devilish theology with John MacArthur leading the way… I don’t think it will go well for ol John MacArthur on the day of judgement…
    Personally, I think this will be contributing factor of the great falling away…
    Thanks for being horrified… it’s a relief to know that I might just be right about John MacArthur…
    Whenever I hear his program come on, I simply change channels, and I don’t give money to the radio stations that broadcast him… donating my time to helping out one particular station use to be my way of contributing…
    In Christ… Jerry C

    • I think that anyone who preaches something like that should take those scriptures for themselves and find out from more than one source what taking the mark is talking about. If it is just a digital way to pay and nothing else, it is not the mark. However, if it becomes a stand for an individual to bow down to and worship then you know how GOD says you cannot serve two masters. So, compromise at your risk for eternity because that just means you want to have now solutions while eternity is forever. Today—means it will be a test of who you love and trust—-so at your own risk believe false teachings but that does not mean you are not accountable.

  5. Kudos for spreading the truth that John MacArthur’s comments on the Mark of the Beast are heretical. I wonder if he is aware of the technologies that change human DNA, so that those injected may no longer be human (nephilim comes to mind). Humanity is a prerequisite for salvation, so exposing what is clearly contradictory to the Bible is important for Christians, who should inform those who may otherwise be damned to Hell after receiving the Mark.

    Blaming secondary doctrines like the pre-trib rapture for another’s failings is a different matter. No one will go to Hell for believing that God will spare His own (as He did with Noah, Abraham and Lot etc.) from His wrath. Rev. 6:16-17 says that the Lamb’s wrath is what is taking place. Jesus died for me, I’ve lived my life for Him, but He will punish me during the Great Tribulation along with all His enemies? That’s a tough sell, but believe it if you wish.

    The different explanations of End Times Prophecy should inspire Christians to do their own research.
    But in doing so, I have read/heard some of the most insulting commentaries from Christians who hammer those who DO believe in the pre-trib rapture. (I haven’t read any irate pre-tribbers who have taken it upon themselves to “educate” the world by insulting post-tribbers and if they exist, shame on them).

    Anyone who breaks fellowship with a friend over this secondary issue needs to reexamine his motives. And don’t tell me they will lose their faith, the excuse I often hear. That’s an unknowable outcome.

    Bigger fish to fry, John!

    • Hi lifelong learner,

      I do not consider the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie to be heresy. And, most of my dearest friends are pretribbers – as well as my favorite pastor. So, I would never break fellowship over the timing of the rapture. I have also carefully pointed all of that out, in previous articles, and I normally do – I guess that I must have forgotten to do that in this one.

      So, thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify that.

      So, let me repeat that John MacArthur is not a heretic because of his preaching on the pre-tribulation rapture lie. He is a heretic because he is preaching that you can still be saved, even though you have the Mark of the Beast. Anyone who endangers the eternal life of a Christian, is a heretic – in my book.

      Thank you, LL.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Morning ‘lifelong learner’… your concern about “breaking fellowship… (over) an unknowable outcome” is understandable. Speculation and conjecture is a wide open arena and difficult to accurately ‘analyze…
      I also understand your position in regards to not knowing any ‘irate pre-tribbers… educating… post-tribbers’. However, I do attend a church where the vast majority of the members are pre-tribbers who smile and chuckle at you if you’re “not one of them”… I constantly here the phrase: “Jerry, don’t worry about it, you may not understand it now, but I’ll explain it to you ‘on the way up’”… that’s just plain insulting to my intelligence and nothing more than their attempt to ‘silence me’.
      In short, I’m a ‘pre-wrath’ rapture believer… and, (IMHO) it’s the best (and easiest) position to defend from Scripture…
      Food for thought – you noted that “the kings of the earth, etc” are the ones declaring that the ‘wrath’ of God has come (rev.6:17 sixth seal). It’s interesting that the seventh trumpet (Rev 11:15) has the 24 elders making the same declaration adding that “NOW” has come the time of God’s wrath (Rev 11:18). It’s also interesting to note that only the bowls are specifically called “the bowls of Gods wrath” Rev 16:1 and as Paul promises: believers are not “appointed” to suffer God’s wrath 1 Thes.5:9. These bowls ‘start’ AFTER the “harvest” of the earth (Rev 14:14-16 / Matthew 13:36-39, 24:30,31).
      It’s my position that the ‘seals’ and ‘trumpets’ are NOT God’s wrath being “poured out” upon the earth – they are Lucifers rage against mankind in general – and Christians specifically.
      Personally, I’ll believe the 24 elders and their understanding of timing of God’s wrath rather than the ‘kings’ of the earth.

  6. Johnny said what he said about the mark YEARS ago…

    Where ya been?

    He’s OBVIOUSLY a freemason shill like MANY in the SBC leadership are…

  7. It is obvious that John MacArthur doesn’t fully grasp the fact that the mark is the end of the road for a person if they should choose it. It is a pledge and worship of the beast. And it may not be as he thinks a simple tattoo of some sort. We still don’t know what that mark is. Some have written it will be an upload into a matrix type system which changes your God-given DNA, promising eternal life and well being with no need of The One and true God, which is selling out ones soul. Others have put out that the mark is the Arabic written text indicating Islam referring to their band on the head they wear and on their wrist. If The Lords saint are not converting now and surrendering their lives in the middle east and elsewhere refusing the beasts mark of ideological Islam, then he hasn’t paid attention. People are being martyred now for refusing to deny Christ. As for the tribulation, God will and promises to save the Jews, so salvation will still be at work and no real Jew will give in to Islam and God will protect those who are now being saved. The 144,000 are ministers of his word still going forth. I think John MacArthur had better repent as he is preaching a different gospel and adding words to Christs finished word which brings a curse as written in the beginning of the same book he chooses to interpret. He will be held accountable for the souls he deceives.Neither does he know what the mark is exactly yet to even be giving advice on it. We know it is forbidden and no real lover of Christ will give the anti Christ worship just so they can buy and sell on this fading planet for just a moment in time and loose their eternity. He preaches a carnal doctrine and gives a bad road sign. He needs to get off stage ..hes done.. We are told by the gospel if we try to save our life we will lose it and if we lose our life we will be saved. Our first dedication is to Christ alone and not man or the anti christ, our enemy and the Lords.

  8. Mark 3:28-30: “Truly I tell you, all sins and blasphemes will be forgiven for the sons of men. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin.

    Notice the only unforgivable sin.

    • Hi John,

      How do you know that taking the Mark of the Beast… that it will not involve blasphemy against the Holy Ghost?

      God specifically gave us clear warning:

      And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

      – Revelation 14:11


      And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

      – Revelation 20:4

      And YOU want to play games with that.

      I hardly know what to say in the face of this kind of thinking. God has given us clear warnings about what will happen to those who take the Mark of the Beast, and people want to say that God wasn’t really serious about those warnings.

      What utter insanity, John. I’m at a loss for words.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  9. John, another in depth and well sourced article…also alarming. I have listened to Pastor Macarthur since becoming a believer over 30 yrs ago. Aside from a theological error concerning his contention that Christ’s blood was not required for the redemptive act (he could have been hung), I have always found his teaching solid. This error re the mark is so glaring, so frightening, it begs your reaction. It is as you say, the product of the pre-tribulation rapture theology. Ironically, this error originated from a part of the church John rails against via his strange fire series, the charismatics! May I suggest your readers check out Pastor Joe schimmel’s documentary http://www.leftbehindorledastray.com. Joe has a standing challenge to debate anyone regarding pre-trib rapture theology and a check for $10,000 if successful. Its been a few years and he hasn’t written a check. This whole mess brings to light a real conflict for me, and I’m not alone. Having spent the last 30 yrs under very conservative theological instruction, with an extremely jaundiced eye towards teachings of Assemblies of God type of churches, I find myself in a type of no man’s land. Stuck between two worlds so to speak. On the one hand, I listen to Allistair Beg and Greg Laurie…sermons on KKLA (if you are familiar with Los Angeles christian radio), and on the other hand I listen to Paul Mcguire and Steve Quayle and read their books, listen to the Hagmann’s and Pastor Langford. Being caught in the middle has had benefits, I’m constantly in the word to test EVERYTHING I’m hearing. I struggle with understanding how these two fractured groups within the body can find some common ground, to better equip the church. I know the bottom line is, we must remain sober, test all things, and seek the Lord always and at all times so we are not deceived. I am thankful the Lord directed me to your site, and pray his protective hand will remain upon you.

    • Hi David P,

      Welcome to that thin plot of land between two worlds called the path of truth. Christ said that the way was narrow, and I find myself more and more constrained as time goes on. And, it is two of the last four verses of the Bible that give me the shivers:

      For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

      And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

      – Revelation 22:18-19


      Verses 18 and 19 terrify me, and should terrify ANYONE. Unfortunately, people don’t read those verses and take them to heart.

      The Pretribbers ADD to the Book of Revelation, and Amillennialists and postmillennialists rip out Revelation 20 and generally hate God’s work in Israel. The rest of us are so few… well, like Christ said …the way is narrow.

      God bless you, David. I’m glad that you found this site.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  10. I am not surprised regarding John McArthur. I lost a lot of respect for him this summer when I heard an interview he did on American Family Radio. He boasts a personal library of very rare books. One item in this library is some religious text (I can’t recall exactly what it is) for which he bragged how he had purchased it from some guy for a fraction of what the document is worth (but declined to let the listening audience or anyone know the true monetary value of the piece) and that the seller had no idea of the worth of the document and that God told him not to let the guy know the true value. After that interview I lost all respect for him as a supposed ‘man of God’.

  11. Hello John, while I agree that MacArthur’s statement regarding the mark of the beast is concerning indeed, I would like clarification on this statement you made, ie, “He has put the eternal lives of Christians in jeopardy by this evil teaching.” Are you suggesting that those who have truly been born again can lose their salvation? Certainly, the possibility of eternal life for those *unbelievers* who may take the mark would be in jeopardy, but it would seem more likely to me that God would keep His children from taking the mark.

    • Hi Joel,

      You are speaking of predestination, and I believe that we must be extremely careful to not misuse that principle – even though I am quite extreme in my belief in God’s absolute control over His creation.

      Remember these verses:

      He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

      – Revelation 3:5


      And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

      – Revelation 22:19

      This means that you CAN be written into the Book of Life – and then, blotted out. In fact, I have known good men who served God with all their heart and sacrificed their well-being for the ministry of Christ – but are now Atheists. They have been blotted out of the Book of Life.

      Is there some element of ‘freewill’ mixed in there?

      I lean towards the same answer that you would give – to deny the existence of ‘freewill’. But… there’s a part of me that says “Be careful with that”. After all, we WILL have our works judged by God, and we will be rewarded for the good service that we do for the Body of Christ. And that seems to indicate that there IS some kind of freewill.

      But, this issue of Predestination is a separate issue, to the one pressed upon us: The condemnation by God upon those who preach not the truth and who do true damage to the Body of Christ.

      As teachers of the Word, we have a grave responsibility, and we are required by God to fulfill that responsibility properly or suffer the wrath of God. Of course, we also gain a great reward for serving as teachers. John MacArthur has greatly sinned against God, and will suffer great loss for it – IF he is ‘truly written in the Book of Life’.

      My hope is that MacArthur will repent of his foolishness, for his loss of reward will be eternal, if he doesn’t.

      Thank you, Joel. Good comment.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  12. We went, about seven years ago, to two Jimmy DeYoung conferences held at Baptist Churches here in Texas. He never said a word about such false teaching at any time. When, two years ago, we heard he was preaching heresy we threw out all the DVD’s and books we had bought. It’s shameful that DeYoung, Brannon, and McArthur are proudly deceiving so many. And why are they not afraid of the fires of Hell for preaching lies? Because they all believe another lie – Once Saved Always Saved!

    • Hi Pam,

      I feel the same way.

      I am deathly afraid of teaching the wrong thing. I fear God and know that He loves His sheep. And, if I should lift myself up in pride and teach wrongly, our just God will chasten me. And, I will even suffer loss of reward.

      Like you indicate, these men should fear God. And, it is clear that they have lost that fear. Such spiritual idolatry grieves me deeply.

      It is the fear of God that keeps our sinful nature from pushing us off the path. And, it is our newborn love for God that keeps us running forward.

      Thank you, Pam. Well said.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  13. I am very sorry to say that you can add another name to the list of those who believe you can still go to heaven even if you take the mark of the beast – Chris Pinto, the documentary film maker. I read about it sometime ago on Ephesians 5:11 blog. I was so distressed about it because I love Pinto’s films. I contacted Mr. Pinto and he confirmed that he did indeed believe that. 🙁

    In addition, Good Fight Ministries sells his films. So I contacted them and shared my concerns and asked them if they agreed with Pinto about the matter. They don’t agree with him, but they still sell his films without a disclaimer.

  14. Yes the Bible DOES have several Rapture Scriptures.
    First of all, Jesus will not beat up His bride in the Tribulation before the wedding !
    What Groom would do that ?
    Holy Spirit filled saints are what is holding him back.
    The Raptured saints return WITH Jesus in His 2nd coming.
    God says that His wrath is not meant for His bride.
    God also says to find yourself worthy to ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS of the Tribulation.
    The Tribulation is God’s wrath – NOT for His bride.
    Every eye will see Him is the 2nd Coming.
    The Rapture He comes as a thief in the night.
    They are not the same thing. Not the same event.
    Read the Bible better – it’s all in there.
    Those left behind – some will be saved if they have NOT taken the Mark.
    Those will be beheaded for the Name of Jesus.
    They then join the already Raptured Bride as John asks who are these coming out of the Tribulation – God says those are them who were beheaded for the Lord.
    The Wedding of the Lamb to His bride happens in the 7 years of Earth’s Tribulation.

    So you are not correct in your teaching — and neither is that MacArther man.
    Once you take that mark you belong to Satan, period !
    And the Elect is not the Bride that is Raptured – again you take two things and make them into one.

    • Hi Little Bright Feather,

      You said that the Bible has several Rapture Scriptures, but you didn’t give me any. You only gave me ‘rationalizations’.

      But, let me give you true scripture:

      Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

      And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

      And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

      – Matthew 24:29-31

      Then, there’s this one:

      Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

      Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

      – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

      And then, this one:

      For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

      – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

      So, to summarize from just those three verses:

      The Tribulation MUST come before the Rapture

      The Antichrist MUST come before the Rapture

      The Resurrection MUST come before the Rapture

      For more, go here:


      Lies will NOT protect you from the terrible days that are coming. In fact, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie will blind you to the truth – just as it has blinded John MacArthur.

      Choosing to believe in a lie, is a sin, LBF. Please consider this very, very carefully.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  15. The school thing… Those packs the school requested have a due date because if it didn’t, they would never get done.

    Now as to why they need it…?

    Sometimes entities do things to fulfill a requirementnorvto show effort. I think this is one of those. It makes the parents, most of them, feel good because they think the school is being proactive

  16. Interesting read and how many false teachers /doctrines are out there being spread by so called born again believers…well I won’t say I saw a vision or had a dream but I was told by God Himself about the great destruction that will hit America and I was commanded to tell them that those that do not belong to God He won’t be able to help them””and was told who has requested for its destruction and his plan on wanting it completely destroyed but God will not allow him the enemy to destroy it completely.. But it will suffer heavy losses…God has blessed us..Amen

  17. This doesn’t surprise me. He’s a good preacher but I myself was shocked and outraged by his Shock and outrage over the Mass, expressed in 2008. Hey Johnm we Catholics aren’t pagan cannibals! Go over Chapter 6 of John’s Gospel again for heaven’s sake. Also the Last supper.

    • Hi Chriscas,

      I believe that there ARE Catholics who are saved, but it is hard to see how Catholics could be Christian. Here are a list of reasons:

      The worship of the ‘Saints’.

      The worship of Mary.

      The history of denying believers the right to read the Bible.

      The huge number of beliefs that are NOT in the Bible.

      The Catholic history of murdering true Christians because they disagreed with the Pope.

      All of that is so overwhelming that it is hard to believe that it is possible for a Catholic to be saved. But, if the Vatican is the woman who rides the Beast in Revelation 17, then there ARE those who are saved within the Roman Catholic Church – and God is calling them out of her.

      God is calling you OUT of the Roman Catholic Church, Chriscas. Will you obey God?

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  18. You made a lot of friends with this one, brother?!

    And here is why “Breonna” attacked you and why anything attacking “JM’s” BS disappears!!!

    Read immediately and in it’s entirety!

    And then realize who/what the AC is:


    It’s been in our face all this time – who the AC is:

    Ez 38



    • Hi Jus’Say’n,

      Thank you for doing that research, and I did read the link that you provided. However, you did not realize that the article was a carefully woven slander. By the conventions employed by that article, the author would condemn myself.

      Clan Little came from Scotland, and both of my grandfathers were Scottish Rite Freemasons of high degree – one of them of the highest degree. They were both extreme racists.

      However, my parents were not Freemasons and not racists. And, three of their six children are married to spouses who are not white.

      Furthermore, just because John MacArthur is ignorant of the true nature of Freemasonry is nothing worthy of condemnation. I didn’t know the true nature of Freemasonry until a few years ago.


      But, none of that is the ‘worst thing’ about the link. The writer of the link understood how flimsy his argument was and wove his words to deliberately deceive the reader, and leave the reader with the belief that John MacArthur is a Freemason, or at least a fellow-traveler.

      We call this lying.

      Now, this may be considered a lie of minor importance, but I say otherwise. It is lying like this by those who seek to promote private hatreds… it is lying like this that obscures the truth, and I am sick and tired of it. These lying liars are either stupid or evil – or both.

      You didn’t understand that, when you read the article, so this has nothing to do with you. But, that vile writer is doing what so many other vile and awful writers are doing. And, they are standing in the way of those who are trying to get the truth out.

      This needs to stop. Now.

      If I need to get a big baseball bat and start bashing heads, I will. These drooling idiots need to be locked up in some drooling-idiot sanitarium, where they can all be drooling idiots, without bothering those of us trying to reveal the truth.


      I don’t care if the lying liar who said it was agreeing with my ‘position’. With friends like that, you don’t need enemies.

      [RANT OVER]

      Okay. Sorry about that, but the link that you gave touched a raw nerve.

      As for the YouTube video… I’ve known about Astana for a while. Yes, it’s full of Illuminati symbols. And the leader of Kazakhstan – Nursultan Nazarbayev – would probably LOVE to be the Antichrist. But… he’s not.

      And, there is no indication in Ezekiel 38 that Gog is the Antichrist. It doesn’t mean that he ISN’T the AC. It just means that you cannot prove that he is, from Ezekiel 38.

      One of these days, I’ll need to sit down and put all the verses about the Antichrist together and try to form a concrete opinion on who he is. My suspicion is that we will only understand who he is, when he appears on the scene – or, just before. But, that doesn’t keep me from thinking about it.

      Thank you, JS. I appreciate the time and effort that you put into your comment. Sorry for the ranting.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  19. Oooooop’s!!!!

    And to think that you “Ranted” for naught?!!! 🙂

    As in —- “AFTER” having SPEEDILY read over that “Link” and “Posting it” —- I went on my search and listened to the man (JM) I had just read THE LYING LIAR LIE ABOUT and REPENTED and then wrote you a follow-on comment asking you to remove my comment concerning JM and the Lying Liars Link.

    Yes! I try always to research and double check and make sure anything I write is factual — though, unfortunately I sometimes do it after-the-fact and then find that I must in all Humility and Shameful Disgrace Apologize, Recant and Repent.

    And repent I do and did!!! NOTHING LESS I CARE TO DO THAN TO SPEAK WRONGLY/ILL CONCERNING A TRUE SERVANT OF GOD! And though I’ve seen where He spoke in EXTREME ERROR (We obviously agree) concerning the Mark of the Beast. Posting a Lying Liars Lie concerning him was likewise EXTREME ERROR!!!

    I AM GLAD that you seem most immediately to have picked up on the fact that “I must have NOT been paying attention” when reading it or known what I was into.
    Thank you! Makes me feel you at least semi-trust my integrity!

    Yes! ALL you said (concerning the link) is correct and I do stand corrected. God forgive me?!

    Anyway – I had already been enlightened to my error and attempted a follow-on response only to get the “Wrong CAPTCHA” message which kicked me back – and having thus “Refreshed” the screen — your response popped up!!!!

    Wish my follow-on had made it before your rant! Might of saved me this rant?!!! And you a headache from even having to see that Lying Liars Link!!!!

    Yea! Those SNAKES make me ANGRY to! I understand! I essentially became a Lying Liar by extension!!!! And what’s worse is that I KNOW BETTER!!!
    Getting so angry at folks who respond to comments and the like when it is oh, so obvious from their response that they didn’t even take the time to READ what was actually said! And that’s what I did — speed read it!!! Glad you picked up on it!!!

    As far as the other – Gog the AC?! Of course you know how I write by now?! To evoke a response – in the positive or negative! To get either a “WOW, I never saw that” or a “Darn, this fool don’t know what he’s talking about, let me school him!!!”

    Brother?! I’ve both “Taken to School” and “BEEN TAKEN TO SCHOOL” and I’ve learned more, faster than I can keep up with most times!!!

    But you see what I was saying about Gog (Ez 38), right?!
    G-d calls him out! Say’s that “he was the one prophesied about from ancient times” and is clearly the one “destroyed by God himself on the mountains of Israel”!!!! Me thinks that’s HIM, brother!

    Where was he “Prophesied Before”?! Isaiah – “The Assyrian – The rod of G-ds Wrath in whose hand is the Club of G-ds indignation” (Isaiah 10) and in “Joel” etc…

    Anyway — you see what I’m saying?!!!! “Gog of the land of Magog, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal” could very well be the AC!!!! Especially by way of the characterization of him in Ez 38 and 39…..

    See I got you interested in it one way or the other and have given you a title for another day anyway?! 🙂 Anything I can do to help!!!!! I’m ALWAYS here for ya, brother!!!! Gott’a keep ya on your toes!!!!

    And since we know that the “Daughter of Babylon” must be destroyed (One Hour) before Gog goes against and is DESTROYED by God on the Mountains of Israel!!!
    Well- just something to bare in mind while digging up those verses concerning the Anti-Christ?!!!!!


    And I look forward to your (Up and coming) article on the AC!!! Just don’t forget “Gog” in your research! Where’s he fall into play?!
