Deception Upon Deception

The amount of deception flooding the world is amazing. Worse, it’s flooding our churches. Deception is everywhere. Separating the truth from the lies… is hard. In fact, it’s an almost insurmountable challenge.

If you hardly know where to begin, in the process of separating truth from fiction, you have my sympathy. I know how you feel, and I struggle with this every single day. But, my hope is that you will win by doing what I am doing:

Reading the Bible. Every. Day.

If you are truly a child of God, you will win. You will see the difference between the lie and the truth.

Deception Upon Deception

Watching events in the aftermath of the Trump election victory has been enlightening. It’s becoming clear that Trump isn’t everything that he says that he is. He is NOT going to ‘drain the swamp’. He is NOT anti-Establishment. He is NOT going to change the way America is governed.

Maybe he started out wanting to make a change, but it’s obvious that he isn’t doing that now.

Maybe he just wants to avoid being assassinated?

I don’t know, but actions speak louder than words. So, it should be clear that most of the Trump fans have been betrayed. I didn’t hold any illusions in this regard, so my expectations have not been insulted.

For the rest of you, keep a watchful eye out for the future. It isn’t as bright as it seems.

Worse, our own churches are growing in their deceptions. It is more and more obvious, and I find myself being disheartened. Those that I expected to see clearly have taken comfort in lies and half-truths.

I don’t know why I allow myself to get depressed over heresy, but I do. I just can’t help it. Every Christian, everywhere, is deeply important to me. So, if someone is teaching a brother or sister in Christ a false message, I get upset. When that false message leads fellow Christians down a road that ends in destruction… I get outraged.

The last five years of writing these articles has shown me to be a far more emotional man than I thought.

Deception is growing by leaps and bounds. You MUST guard yourself from the lying liars that seek to scratch itching ears. It was this very thing that Paul warned Timothy of:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 – 2 Timothy 4:3-4

Read your Bible. Every day. All of it. Again. And. Again.

If you aren’t feeding yourself with the truth, you will fall for the lies.

REALIST NEWS – Dallas to Raise Property Taxes 130% to pay for Failing Pension – YouTube

I haven’t talked about this in a while, but you need to pay attention to this.

If I were in your shoes, and was a part of a pension plan…

…If I were EVER offered a LUMP SUM payment by my pension plan, to buy me out of their obligation to me… I WOULD TAKE IT.

Since I am not you, I can only tell you what I would do in that situation. IT IS WHAT I WOULD DO.

So, what would YOU do, in such a situation?

My wife and I did the same thing with our 401k plans. We liquidated them and paid the penalty.

Trump Can’t Fix This | The KrisAnne Hall Show, Nov 17th. – YouTube

For the sake of argument, let’s assume that Trump is EVERYTHING that he says that he is.

He still can’t fix the abysmal ignorance and stupidity of the American population.


And, we did it to ourselves.

Muslim Leader Miraculously Raised from the Dead and Converted – Christian News Headlines

These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.

Huge Crisis Headed Our Way, Credit Freeze, Bank Runs & Riots:Clif High – YouTube

Okay, this is interesting, BUT…

…YOU WILL BE TURNED OFF by his use of the word ‘psychic’.

(I was, and still am.)

There is no such thing. But, there is a very powerful subconscious in each of us. Having looked into the ‘power’ of the subconscious mind, I believe that quite a bit can come from that.

And, let’s not forget the demons that whisper in the ear. There are LOTS of those, and THEY are interconnected. And, THEY are responsible for much that is called ‘psychic’. In fact, that might account for most, if not all, of his results.

Like most things, it is a data point that might be meaningless. I leave it for you to decide.

But, interesting.

NOTR – Hillary, Witchcraft & The White House – 11.7.16 – Noise of Thunder Radio Show – Noise of Thunder Radio with Chris Pinto

Here’s the write-up:

Chris discusses new disturbing revelations about the WikiLeaks emails that show connections with occult practices. But this is not the first time Hillary Clinton has been associated with paganism and witchcraft, as is shown by the testimonies of those who have been close to the Clinton’s in years past. Could these be modern manifestations of the worship of Baal and the false gods of the ancient world?

This was from before the election. I wasn’t able to get it into last Friday’s post. But, it’s worth listening to.

The Latest Wikileaks Were a Bridge Too Far for Hillary to Win – YouTube

This speaks to how we all feel. The profound relief that the most evil politician in living memory – maybe even more evil than LBJ – will not be our president.

Although… George Bush Sr. might be more evil than Hillary. But, he was better at keeping it hidden. If nothing else, we could claim ignorance.

Exclusive: Wells Fargo to unveil robo-adviser partnership with SigFig

I was actually a member of the team that helped convince Well Fargo to upgrade their CRM software, in the late ’90s. I was sent from Jerusalem to San Francisco to join the project, and I was there for about a month and a half.

(And yes, San Francisco was revolting, and still is.)

So, I am not surprised that they would do this. They’ve always been a bit ‘cutting edge’, even in the area of corruption.

The Color Purple – Not the Movie but a Revolutionary Movement | Armstrong Economics

Here is the last paragraph:

Any way we slice this, it appears the Democrats want to forcibly foster a socialist revolution. If they cannot inject their policies to suppress those who produce, they will do so by whatever means are at their disposal. So just keep an eye out for this trend over the next three years. This is why both Obama and Hillary are silent with the violent protests. This is precisely what our War Model has been warning. Everyone thought it would be the right-wing if Trump lost. They overlooked the left-wing and their efforts to brainwash the youth to do a takeover of government.

They’re still in the game, and game is all about their leader, Satan.

Obama Sets New Record For Regulations – 81,640 Pages In 2016 | Zero Hedge

They say that ‘ignorance of the law is no defence’, so I’m wondering if any of you have added up all the pages of legislation that have been created.

Could someone PLEASE bulldoze Washington, D.C. and save us from having to read all of that garbage?

(And yes, save us from having to pay for the creation of that garbage.)



This category has expanded significantly. It’s as if the flood gates on this issue have opened. It’s an indication of the seriousness of the situation. And, it’s very serious, indeed.

Ethiopia is an extremely corrupt government and has made worthless promises that they will carefully fill the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. I believe that they will fill that dam as fast as possible, drying up the Nile, just as chapter 19 of Isaiah said that they would.

It is said that they will begin filling the dam, next year.

This is going to be traumatic for Egypt – just as Isaiah said.

Ethiopian dam will have a devastating effect on Egypt, warns water expert – Middle East Monitor

Here’s a quote:

Speaking to Quds Press, Professor Nader Nouriddin said that the dam is going to decrease Egypt’s annual portion of water from River Nile by 12 billion cubic metres. Drought conditions in Lake Nasser are also likely, he added.

Yes, it will.

The fact that he was talking to ‘Quds Press’, makes it even more appropriate.

ANY time you see the word ‘Quds’, they are referring to Jerusalem. And, not in a good way.

The events that are descending upon us, will try our souls. How many of us survive those trials will depend upon your location and your preparations.

Please prepare for the worst period of time in human history. America will be ground zero, followed by Europe. Other places will be devastated, but those two areas will be hit the worst – at least, as I see it now.

No place will be safe, but there are some places that will be safer than others.

Please, prepare for the worst.

Okay, so Trump won.

This is good, because it means that Clinton lost.

This category speaks to the aftermath of the Trump win. My hope is that I’ll be able to close this category out, when the world realizes that Trump will not be as good as people hoped, or as bad as they feared.

Trump will be just one more president, in a long line of presidents, that compromized on the ideals that are the foundation of America. (Either that, or the Deep State will assassinate him.)

Will Trump Do What Reagan Couldn’t?

This is one reason why I would never want a good man to become a president:

If they are not craven before getting into office, once the newly elected officeholders walk into the sty, it is just a matter of time until they slip up and wallow with the pigs.

That quote from the article is as true as anything you will read, this Friday.

Trump will not be better than Reagan.

“Beware Of The Shadow Government”: Ron Paul Warns President-Elect Trump | Zero Hedge

What Ron Paul is speaking of, was spoken of more than a hundred years ago, by Woodrow Wilson:

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

― Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom

The Trump Presidency -Very Important Info Must Hear! -Joanie Stahl, Brook A, Tony K – YouTube

A friend sent this to me and encouraged me to listen. I did, and it’s intruiging. Here’s the write-up:

Episode 079 is possibly the most important AMTM show we have ever done. Please spread this far and wide. We tell you the truth about the election, why Donald Trump was elected, and what is likely to happen now. Joanie Stahl spoke out in January 2016 on how she had been told by an insider that Trump had been chosen to be the next President two years ago and why it was. We published that interview 11 months ago. It was before Trump was even the Republican candidate!. Then in early May Joanie revealed that she was certain that Donald Trump will be the next and last President of the USA. What she tells us in this AMTM in-house show is the exact opposite to what the Firefighter is telling people that is coming. We believe his prophecy is false. Brook and Joanie explain why that is in this show. Everyone needs to hear this information. It is extremely important that people hear this whole episode.

The part where she was told by a Secret Service agent that Trump WOULD be elected, that he had been chosen for the job, by the Elites… two years ago …that made me sit up and take notice. And, that part was NOT a vision or dream.

Newsbud on the Record: The Podesta Scandal & the Importance of Media Integrity – YouTube

Okay, this is by Sibel Edmonds. I cringe every time I listen to her. She’s anti-Israel. She’s anti-Christian. And she talks in a very condescending manner.

And, true to form, she leveled yet another unsubstantiated accusation against Israel with no evidence, whatsoever. She provided evidence for her other accusations, but never has evidence for her accusations against Israel. And, she never accuses any other country as much as she accuses Israel.

How convenient.

Oh, and she has a foul mouth.

And, in this discussion, she tries to discount any Satanism out there.

But… and this is important …she brings some important information to the table. And, you need to hear this. Seriously.

When the FBI does a background check on a federal judge, they’re looking for material that could be used to blackmail the judge.

Until the sins of this nation are acknowledged by its people, and that sin is put away, repented of, and forgiven by God there will be NO return to greatness! Short of the populous (particularly the Church) of this nation returning to a sanctified state we will remain the object of God’s displeasure. We must allow that truth to sink down into our hearts and allow it to trouble us to the point it affects our personal behavior.

Well said.

And, he ends his article with this:

In fact, it has begun already.

These people want to tax everything and see that interest rates can be negative forever if they get rid of cash. They are totally insane.

BREAKING NEWS! ‘Racist’ Donald Trump is planning to evict black tenants from one of his buildings – BARE NAKED ISLAM


PLAY BALL!!! | Knuckledraggin My Life Away

Um… I don’t think that I’ve ever seen that before. And, I thought that I’d seen everything.

Did you know…


Bud, The Montana Cowboy

Oh dear… I howled at this one.

It really is a ‘must read’. Just don’t drinking anything when you get to the ‘punch line’. It’ll be coming out of your nose, if you do.

Even my long-suffering wife laughed. It’s that funny.



Islam is the most vile and Satanic religion on the planet. It is violent, repressive, racist and supremacist. It isn’t just a religion. It’s an ideology that seeks to destroy any nation, country and government that it comes in contact with.

These are the articles that demonstrate what Islam REALLY is.

What Islam Really Teaches about God and Jesus (David Wood) – YouTube

A nice big knock down of Islam. And a powerful argument for our Lord and Savior.

Well done, David Wood!

Oh, BOO HOO. Muslim woman in Italy forced to flee abusive husband who beats her all the time – BARE NAKED ISLAM

Ladies… if you’re a Muslim, you need to expect to be beaten.

It’s in the Qur’an.

Have you considered the possibility that another religion might be better?



We are seeing the fulfillment of the words of Jesus, right now. And, it seems that Islam is leading the way. What insanity!

What is wrong with North America and Europe?

Have they – and we – gone insane?

Robert Spencer on Yet Another “Islamophobic Hate Crime” Hoax – YouTube

There’s nothing like a little Taqiyya to brighten your day.

The next time someone screams ‘hate crime’, throw a brick at ’em.

Migrants bring “Muslim concept of rape slavery” to Austria – YouTube

Hey, Muslim Migrant Men are enslaving Muslim migrant women and forcing them into prostitution.

It’s a cultural thing.

Nothing to see here. Forget that I said anything.

TRUMP’S AMERICA! Anti-Islam law already pre-filed in Georgia legislature – BARE NAKED ISLAM

Hmmmm… I like this. I really do.

REP. KEITH ELLISON, proposed chairman for the DNC, has ties to Communist groups as well as to Islamic terrorist groups – BARE NAKED ISLAM

Well hey. The DNC is going to bring in someone from the AllahuAck Bar.

There’s nothing like someone showing their true colors.

Germany Launches Biggest Crackdown On Islamists In 15 Years: Raids 190 Mosques, Bans Radical Organization | Zero Hedge

Finally. The Germans are doing something.

It’s not enough. Not even close. But, I still can hardly believe it.

There are people in the German government that haven’t lost their ability to think?


Leftist sympathizers pledging to register as Muslims if Donald Trump goes through with a Muslim Registry – BARE NAKED ISLAM

Um… during the Cold War, Russians and Eastern Europeans in the US received extra ‘scrutiny’.

Why would ANY rational human being do differently?

But, if ‘liberals’ want to be on a ‘watch list’, I’m all for it.

Make my day!

NETHERLANDS government will start imposing fines on towns that haven’t taken in enough Muslim freeloaders – BARE NAKED ISLAM

Ouch. I’d rather pay the fine.



I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:

And, the articles below point to that coming. I really, Really, REALLY hope that you’ll be ready for this. Please read Ezekiel’s Fire to make sure. (And yes, it’s free.)

Possible Scenarios of the Conflict in Syria – YouTube

Since I haven’t spent as much time as I could on the issue of Syria, I can’t say whether this analysis is correct. However, I sense enough validity to put this forward.

Creating ‘spheres of influence’ in Syria is all too plausible. All too.Russian Economy Minister Arrested For $2 Million Bribe Over Rosneft Deal | Zero Hedge

It looks like there was something of a palace putsch at the Kremlin. Another member of the civiliki has been taken down. Was this a siloviki plot?

Jordan, A new and sinister picture is emerging | Rebel Planet Dispatch

I have spent a fair amount of time in Jordan, so it bothers me that Jordan would be on the path to destruction.

But, a close analysis of the events of Gog and Magog will show that they are indeed going to be destroyed.




The Land of Israel and the People of Israel are at the heart of what is happening in these Last Days. God is at work IN Israel and WITH Israel.

If you are against Israel, then you are a supporter of Islam and Satan.

If you are FOR Israel, then you support the work of God and the victory that God will have over Lucifer.

Please join me in that battle.

audioBoom / Trump & Jerusalem, Israel. @AaronKleinShow.

This is the Israeli view of the election.

They are VERY pro-Trump.

Palestinian Authority threatens to ‘make life miserable’ for Donald Trump if he moves the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem

I say to those miserable fools… bring it on.

What Donald Trump Just Did Is Going To Have Social Conservatives In A State Of Complete Shock

This should go into the ‘TRUMPAGEDDON’ category, except for this quote:

In fact, Trump just told the Wall Street Journal that a peace agreement that would permanently divide the land of Israel into two states would be “the ultimate deal” and that he is very interested in trying to make that happen “for humanity’s sake”.

Nothing good happens to those who ‘burden themselves’ with Jerusalem. Look up that reference to the ‘burdensome stone’. Read what happens to those who ‘burend themselves’ with it.

The Blessings of Israel | Rebel Planet Dispatch

I have been disheartened over the past week to see so many ‘Christians’ speak against Israel. So, it’s like a ‘shot in the arm’ to see Marcel’s writing. He quotes Isaiah 44, and God was speaking of Israel’s coming redemption. A redemption that has not yet arrived.

But, it WILL come.

After quoting a portion of Isaiah 44, Marcel says this:

This is only a small part of Isaiah 44. Read the whole chapter to understand what God is doing now and to help distance yourself from the wolves in sheeps clothing who lie and say God is finished with Israel and the Jews.

They are nothing more than emissaries of Satan.

I am forced to agree with Marcel. My hope is that they will repent before God judges them.

  1. Greetings John,
    Some of us were warned about Trump by the Holy Spirit, but most would not listen when we tried to share what we were given. Trump is a part of the deception/delusion that “all is well”, when actually we are in the time of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 –
    “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”

    The global elite, luciferians will NOT let things move forward peacefully. Don’t be surprised if this entire thing takes a few more twists and turns, with martial law being declared at some point and the election results suspended.

    The following is a warning dream I had about Trump:

  2. Brother John,

    I voted for Trump as you know. And I gotta tell ya.. I feel sick to my stomach.. He is hanging out with known neocons. On one hand I keep telling (probably more like kidding myself) when I justify and say ,”Maybe he has a reason for keeping the deep state. Maybe he will fire them eventually.” On the other hand, another part of me is ready and willing to accept that he betrayed his supporters.

    But that’s okay.

    I will keep in mind that Trump may be my President, but he is NOT my Lord and Savior. My Kingdom is not America. We’re only here temporarily.

    I don’t know what else to say other than thanks for all you do.

    God Bless.

  3. About the converted Muslim… I had a long conversation with a missionary in a Muslim country. The Muslims very commonly have a dream about being converted to Christ. And they take those dreams very seriously. They convert at the threat of death, lost family, lost jobs and lost homes. They start a church where they can and more are converted, with those same risks. And what’s more, they know the risk.
    What is sad is that after hearing what my friend had to say, those little home Churches in that un-named Muslim country put our “churches” to shame. While we fuss over the carpet and where to put the cuppachino bar and listen to those very subtle false teachers they promote, these ex Muslim live a life for Christ that could have them killed every day.
    I’m 100% convinced that if the Church in the US was made illegal and had to go underground, it would be the best thing. We have it FAR to easy. So easy, the enemy isn’t at the gate, he’s in most Churches.
    I love the King James translation of Genesis 3:1: Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
    Not “crafty” SUBTLE”. He’s in the Church now. And most don’t even know it.

  4. I’m mighty thankful for your work brother. Your God given insight and ability to convey what He’s showin you is a great help for those of us that cain’t internet very well.

    Thank you.

  5. Hi John!
    Thanks for keeping these installments coming!
    Think I have had a bit of a political hang over for the last week. But I am recovering.
    As I have said before, I voted more against HRC than for Trump, and I am relieved HRC was defeated.
    Will Trump make a good president?
    Will he drain the swamp?
    I don’t know. I don’t think we will know until March or April of 2017.
    The real question is what kind of shape will we be in when we get there?

    I do have some reason for optimism. With the defeat of HRC I think the chance of a third world war has gone down some. If we could just get the secret service to throw a bucket of water on HRC and get it over with! (yes dating myself with a Wizard of Oz reference!)
    I don’t think there will be any military activity around the Ukraine in the near future.
    Winter campaign in Russia?
    What could possibly go wrong?

    Will there be a second american civil war?
    This is still possible, three things I will be watching:
    First, I think there is a strong possibility of a false flag event in Chicago this week end.
    I like Dave Hodges, but sometimes he can be a bit of an alarmist.

    There are also reports of attempts to influence the electoral college, but this I think is unlikely to happen. HRC did already throw in the towel.

    There are also several reports out there for a massive demonstration during the inauguration in Jan 2017.

    Along with Damascus, these are what I am watching.

    On the economic front, X22 put out a report about the Italian banks giving out stock instead of money in exchange for their bonds. I am a novice in finance, but this sounds like the beginning of a bail in to me.
    So the banking system goes down the drain shortly after Trump takes office?
    Could the central bankers be so heartless?!

    (gasp! this is where you lean back looking helpless with the back of your hand on your forehead)
    One other quick note, we (meaning YOU) really need a way to put music in these posts to build the dramatic effect. How can a serious artist work under such circumstances! bla bla bla you know the rest!

    Amir Tsarfati had a report out that the EU is again pushing to take over command of all member nations military, but have not seen any supporting data on that yet.
    Lots to watch out for!
    Hope this finds you and yours well!

  6. Hi John, I share your news letter with a small but growing group of my close friends. I appreciate what your doing. You have made a positive impact on mine and other livers around me. Have you heard of the Millennium Report? Some of the information they are putting out is getting quit horrific. I believe most of it is fact and does need to be shared. Here is a link to one of the latest articles. I have a tremendous amount of respect for you and would appreciate your opinion on this and other information coming out on this site. Kind Regards. Andrew

  7. John:We pray that John&family and all who read this site had a gracious Day of Thanksgiving and show our vibrant love to those in our families and beyond.For me I had to reflect on what I am doing with the resources,time,talents I have been given and clearly found have been deficient in all three so have made a declaration that I WILL SERVE THE LORD NOW with whatever time I have left.Recent events have shown the time to really take notice:with the E.U.deciding to from the Tower of Babel in Strassburg France to develop a military separate from NATO and the Jesuit on Sun.past wrote in an encyclical to the church that he will allow regular priests to absolve women who have had abortions from guilt.The man of lawlessness is becoming more clear.Again for me,I will love my wife,children and never take for granted because the enemy is around the corner and on the move.
