My Take on 2017 – Part One

I always predict that the next year will be interesting, and I’m always right. Well, I’m always right on that word, ‘interesting’. The rest of my predictions tend to be less than accurate.

So, interesting events will abound. The question is whether they will be sufficiently benign for you to survive them. I suspect that the body count won’t escalate until we hit 2018. But, the wreckage of the financial system might leave you with very little to show for all of your hard work.

But, let’s take a few moments to look at what I think about the coming year.

My Take on 2017 – Part One

I didn’t want to make this into two parts, but it has been a stressful week. Those who know me here in Taiwan have very little understanding of what I do all day, every day. They think that the writer’s life is one of ease and fuzzy slippers.

It’s not.

And no, I do NOT own a pair of ‘fuzzy slippers’, although Mrs. Little has been threatening to get me some, for several years now. Pink, with rabbit ears.

I say all that to moan about the demands on my time, keeping me from doing much research and writing my predictions for 2017. (excuses, excuses) Of course, my predictions are generally wrong, and I’ve never claimed that I’m any good at timing.

What I am good at is pointing out things that have already happened (or just about to happen) and how important they are. If I should ever get the timing of a future event correctly, it’s probably an accident.

When you read this week’s research, you’ll see a lot of predictions about what might happen next year. And, they’ll probably be wrong too. 2017 seems set to be a VERY difficult year to predict. I suspect that the best that we can do is describe what the individual players will want to do, and what they might try to do to meet their goals.

The Deep State

There has been much talk about the Deep State, and their interest in holding on to their power. I don’t think that there are too many people who really understand who the ‘Deep State’ is and how much power they really have.

The fact that there IS a ‘Deep State’ should not be in question.

Please watch the following video, if you have any doubts about this ‘Deep State’:

JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick

YouTube shortlink:

It’s long. I know. So, just watch the first hour, if you don’t have any more time than that. And then, share it with everyone that you know.

I guarantee that you will be sickened and appalled by what you see in just that first hour. And yes, that first hour is all true.

The second hour is also true, although there is some element of speculation. But, only some. This goes for the third hour as well.

But, aside from those bits of speculation, the pattern that you will see should be horrifying. And, I can tell you from my own research, that this pattern is true.

When Paul said this to Timothy…

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

1 Timothy 6:10

…he wasn’t joking.

Unfortunately, the King James version translates the above incorrectly. It’s not ‘all evil’. It should have been translated as:

Many Evils

But, translators are only human.

My point is that there is a Deep State that will oppose Trump, and it will still be in place when Obama leaves. Either Trump will cooperate with the Deep State, or they’ll kill him, just as they did to JFK, when Kennedy threatened their power.

Will Trump be assassinated in 2017?

Probably not, since I expect Trump to cooperate with the Deep State.

Gog And Magog

Here’s my prediction for Gog and Magog:

It will not happen in the summer of 2017.

And yes, it must be in the summer. All the wars in the Middle East are in the summer for the very specific reason that war is impossible at any other time. Heavy rain creates mud, and mud favors the defender, every single time.

And, in the winter, in Israel, it rains. A lot.

Furthermore, the alliance described in the Bible has players that are not yet in alliance with Russia. However, those alliances are building, and I expect to see them continue to build over the course of 2017.

In fact, there’s one name that you should pay close attention to:

Khalifa Haftar

That guy will one day be the leader of Libya.


Because Russia is backing him. That’s why. And, also because the US Dept. of State is staffed by idiots and losers who lost control of Libya.

The exception to those idiots and losers are those friends of mine who still work for the State Department. They are the exceptions. You know who you are.

(Could you guys PLEASE find a different line of work?)

Gold And Silver

Some very smart people are claiming that gold will take a dive in the first part of 2017. I would call that a ‘buying opportunity’. I’ve been using gold as my bank account for several years, which means that I will be forced to sell at a loss. In fact, I’ve been selling at a loss for quite some time.

I hate that.

Martin Armstrong always seems to be right about Gold, so I’ll defer to him.

Will gold do better, later in the year?

It’s hard to say. I suspect that it will. But, I don’t really care. I’m not in the little bit of gold that I have, to make money.

I also have silver. Not as much as I would like, but I have at least some. I suspect that my silver will do much better in 2017. But, like I said… I don’t really care.

Okay, I’ll stop here, since I need to get this out. Lord willing, I will have more to say on what will happen in 2017, next week.

Please feel free to offer your own thoughts on what will happen in the coming year.

The Religious Significance Of New Year’s Day

Oh, I almost forgot. The significance of New Year’s Day.

Do any of you know the reason why January First is New Years Day?

The first reason lies with the Roman god, Janus – which January is named after. He’s the ‘god’ of changes and new beginnings. Many Romans celebrated the New Year on January First, because of that.

But, that’s an awfully pagan reason, and it’s not the official reason that the Roman Catholic church chose January First.

Why did the Roman Catholic Church choose the Pagan New Year to be their official New Year’s day?

Well, if you believe that Jesus was born on December 25th, what would the eighth day be?

That’s right. January 1st.

So, this Sunday, please wish those you meet…

…a happy Circumcision of Jesus Day!

JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick – YouTube

Homework assignment.

Watch this video.

Yes, I know that it’s long, but the evil runs deep. And, you need to see this.

And yes, the guy is an atheist. You’ll survive.

What you need to do is understand what is going on. How YOU (and I) are being manipulated. There are a couple things that he gets a bit wrong, but that’s okay. What you need to do is look at history.

They’re going to take us to war.

You need to know why.

Oh, and there’s one other thing that is important to see about all this. They keep screwing up. They keep, ‘blowing it’. And, you need to remember that. These people are not omnipotent.

And, God keeps putting a thumb in Satan’s eye.

Okay, this is loooooong. REAL long.

But, there’s a lot of humor here, and it saves me from having to write it, myself.

Things That Make You Go Hmm… Like The Death Of The Petrodollar, And What Comes After | Zero Hedge

This is a moderately long article, but it packs a HUGE… no, YUUUUGE …wallop.

(You know, I think that this is the first time that I’ve ever written the word, ‘wallop’.)

This is YUUUUGE for the death of the dollar. This is YUUUUGE for the demand for gold. This is YUUUUGE for the death of the American economy.

And, it will eventually bring Gog and Magog.

Put on your thinking cap for this one. The implications are enormous. It’s the death of Empire and a different New World Order, than the one envisioned by the American Elites.

This will be interesting, and a lot of people will die before the global changes this represents play out.

Investigating #ShadySuperPACs And Media Manipulation With Andrew Kerr – YouTube

Citizen Journalists – which are the only real journalists, anymore – are chipping away at the corrupt facade of Democrat Elites. The woman behind ‘Reality Calls’ has had to scale back her campaign to expose the pedophile child rapists of #PizzaGate. YouTube is threatening her, so she’s taken another tack. An interesting ‘tack’.

She’s ‘following the money’.

And, when you follow the money…

And, she has done a series of videos with Andrew Kerr, and Andrew is going after the corrupt money behind these ‘SuperPacs’.

Well done, one and all!

America Has Unofficially Declared War on the Homeless

Once upon a time, only the mentally unstable were homeless, and the addicts and runaways.

But, it appears to be far more than that, now. The US government has consumed the economy and driven the poorest onto the streets.

If we want to deal with homelessness, we need to shrink the government. We need to break the back of the Empire. Of course, we won’t do that.

And, the hard-hearted local governments are doing their best to make the lives of the homeless even worse.

This is a vital and important point, from the article:

The power of industrialization and technology can be seen here. Up until the 1800s, it was almost unfathomable to have a city of more than a million inhabitants.

Sanitation and industry – especially, fossil fuel fueled industry and the tractor – made big cities possible. And, with big cities, you are able to mold the character of a society.

Notice who voted for Hillary Clinton… the cities.

Notice where the collapse of morality comes from… the cities.

Chinese Carrier Sails By Taiwan, Enters Contested South China Sea | Zero Hedge

Okay, I’m not impressed by this, although it DOES represent a trend that could start to worry some of us here in Taiwan. But, this ‘aircraft carrier’ is quite limited. It’s more of a ‘show piece’ than anything.

The number of aircraft that it can carry is small, and the lack of a catapult will limit the ability of the aircraft to carry much ordinance.

The bigger threat might come from the missiles that this ship can launch. It is, after all, a missile cruiser, first.

The Darkness Before the Dawn: Before Christ Comes Antichrist! – Let’s Get It Right!

I was talking to a friend a few days ago. Like me, he knows that the pretribulation rapture theory is a fraud. He mentioned to me that he’d had a conversation with a pastor who taught the pretrib lie.

This foolish pastor said that if the pretrib rapture is proven false, he would leave Christianity.

What a disgusting fiend from Hell.

If your faith in Christ is based upon a lie… you are NOT a Christian.

And, there are too many ‘fiends from Hell’ that are preaching from the pulpit, and they are preparing to lead their congregations to a belief in a false messiah.

The Antichrist will come and claim to be God, and he will lead foolish pretribbers to damnation.

And, God will punish all pretribbers for playing their role in leading Christians to that eternal torment.

I am appalled and sickened by all of this. How dare the pretribbers participate in such an awful lie.



I hope that you will forgive me for wanting these people dead. With a thorough trial, first to establish the facts… then, a swift execution.

God help us all.

sexuality – Does the talmud promote pedophilia? – Mi Yodeya

The answer?


Having had to watch commenters blame the Jews for everything. I’ve seen a rash of villainous fools claim that Judaism gives the OK to pedophilia.

This is not true, which is why I am including this here. Pedophilia is an abomination in Judaism.

Please note that I consider Judaism to be pagan. Any belief that does not accept Jesus as God and Savior is pagan. Full stop. Judaism accepts neither, so they are pagan.

I just do not like to see ANYONE slandered.



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.

Are Cairo, Riyadh in a messy ‘political divorce’?

And, it looks like the Saudis are upping the ante by supporting Ethiopia and their Renaissance Dam.

Interesting. Very.



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.

Here’s Where You Absolutely Don’t Want to Be “When It All Turns Ugly”

The Future of Passports and Citizenship by Investment | International Man

I don’t know if this is a good idea or not – investing in a ‘passport’.

I don’t have the money to do it, and most of you won’t, either.

Most of us will need to do this the hard way, with hard work, ingenuity and the grace of God. Of course, THAT is the better way. However, God might be leading you to do this. I don’t know.

But, the thought of a ‘global passport’ gives me chills.



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.)

Never forget that the Elites are inbred psychopaths with – at best – average IQs. The ONLY thing that keeps them on top is money and a willingness to be more evil than anyone else.

Oh, and they have another problem… they have a tendency to believe their own rhetoric. That’s a pretty fatal flaw, in my book.

Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.

In fact, it has begun already.

By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.

“YOU ARE SAFE IN CHICAGO” – The Burning Platform


Now THAT is irony.



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.


Yup. Adam Saleh calls black people, ‘Abeed’. Abd mees slave. Abeed is plural for Abd. That’s right. Slaves. Adam Saleh calls black people, slaves.


Now, the reason why Adam Saleh calls black people slaves, is because that’s what Muhammad (violence be upon him) called black people.


Both Adam Saleh and Muhammad are vile cockroaches. And, I need to apologize to cockroaches, for saying that.



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?

The Suicide of Germany

This is the summary:

Of the 1.2 million migrants who arrived in Germany in 2014 and 2015, only 34,000 found work.

Angela Merkel went to lay white roses at the scene of the Christmas market attack in Berlin. Thousands of Germans did the same. Many brought candles and cried. But anger and the will to combat the threat remained largely absent.

Nothing better describes the present state of Germany than the sad fate of Maria Landenburger, a 19-year-old girl, murdered at the beginning of December. A member of a refugee relief organization, Landenburger was among those who welcomed migrants in 2015. She was raped and murdered by one of the people she was helping. Her family asked anyone who wanted to pay tribute to their daughter to give money to refugee associations, so that more refugees could come to Germany.

The law that condemns incitement to hatred, presumably intended to prevent a return to Nazi ideas, is held like a sword over whoever speaks too harshly of the growing Islamization of the country.

The great majority of the Germans do not want to see that Germany is at war, because a merciless enemy has declared war on them. They do not want to see that war has been declared on Western civilization. They accept defeat and docilely do what jihadists want them to do: they submit.

If Angela Merkel does not see the difference between Jews exterminated by the Nazis, and Muslims threatening to exterminate Christians, Jews and other Muslims, she is even more clueless than it seems.

The first item in this summary is shocking. This means that there are over a million barbarians with too much time on their hands, and a willingness to use that time for evil.


It’s the ‘religion of pieces’, where the weak and disabled are set on fire for the fun and enjoyment of the barbarians.

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.)

So, as Turkey joins Russia, they pull Ethiopia with them?

The discussion of a growing alliance between Russia, Iran and Turkey should be chilling to those of you who understand Ezekiel’s Fire.

I still do not see the coming of Gog and Magog in the coming summer. And yes, Gog and Magog can only come in the summer months. The rains of winter make large scale, extended combat dangerous for attackers.

You will notice that ALL of the wars in the Middle East have happened during the summer. The winter always favors the defender.

So, will Gog and Magog happen in the summer of 2018?

We’ll see what happens over the coming months.

The alliance is forming up. I expect 2017 to be a ‘formation year’. Then… 2018 could be either another ‘formation year’, or when they ‘pull the trigger’.

We’ll see. But, watch this Haftar guy.

US Denies It Created ISIS, Accuses Turkey Of Spreading “Fake News” | Zero Hedge

OOOPS. Another ‘fake news’ outlet has been revealed by the US government.

In this case, there really is some fakery here, since Turkey has been the key supporter and enabler of ISIS. Specifically, through Erdogan’s son, with the charming name of Bilal.

But, don’t let the details get in the way of a good story.



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.

School in Taiwan is condemned after students wave Nazi flags and shout ‘Sief Heil’ | Daily Mail Online

This is how evil takes root. The history of evil is always ‘whitewashed’, allowing those who are evil to gain power and do it again and again.

This is a worldwide phenomenon. Expect to see more of this. Even in forgotten corners of the world, like Taiwan.

The good thing is that this school is being thoroughly punished for this. There funds have been cut by the government and they are being told to learn about the Holocaust.

Unfortunately, the swastika is a positive symbol in Buddhism that was appropriated by Hitler. Those who are Buddhists – and there are a lot of them here – will want to look favorably on any ideology that uses that symbol.

In fact, here in Taiwan, a swastika on a restaurant always means that it’s vegetarian.

(Vegetarians are Nazis? YES! Another reason to eat cheeseburgers!)

None of that is an excuse. This teacher knew what he was doing. He completely understood the Holocaust and what Hitler did. He approved of Hitler. And, THAT is why he did it.

Evil is everywhere. Never forget that.

This is more on the apology. My wife, who reads the news in Chinese says that their apology was not sincere.

I would love to have permission from God to use something more than words to demonstrate my outrage. But, God has promised to handle such things.

I truly hope that they will repent.

This is an attack upon Jerusalem. And, when you attack Jerusalem, you find yourself destroyed. Trump had better work quickly to fix this, or America will be ground to pieces because of this.

  1. Hi Brother John,

    Thanks for this installment. I would like to share a couple of sites for you and your followers. I follow these sites to truly paint the global economic condition:

    By the time Obama leaves office (assuming he leaves) our national debt will be 20 trillion. speaking of physical gold and silver, you can see their theoretical values based on the M2. I am a gold and silver stacker. I always keep in mind what you quoted regarding ‘the love of money being the root of many evils.’ I stack not because I want to be rich. I stack to protect my family for what is coming.

    One more site I’d like to share. I came across it by accident (or not 🙂 )

    Go to youtube and type in ‘One For Israel’. It is a great channel about our Jewish bros in the Holy Land who have accepted Christ as their Savior. 🙂 amazing stories from different Israelis and how they became Christians..

    God Bless..

    • Hi Joel the Filipino,

      I knew about the US Debt Clock. And, that is a GREAT site for thinking about the implications of the US debt. Your reminder is very timely.

      But, I had NOT seen that second one: Now THAT is an awesome little site. I’ve bookmarked it, and it is now high on my list.

      Oh, and your reasons for ‘stacking’?

      That is THE reason why we should ALL be ‘stacking’. Our job in this world – aside from spreading the gospel – is to prepare for those that cannot prepare for themselves. We prepare not just for ourselves. We prepare for those that God has given us responsibility for. That means family. That means brothers and sisters in Christ.

      Well done.

      Also you are the second person this week to point out ‘One For Israel‘ to me. I had not seen that site before. Here’s the web page:

      When I scrolled down the page, I saw the pastor of our home church, Jerusalem Assembly. He’s the short bald guy, fifth from the left:

      Meno Kalisher is an awesome pastor. If Meno shows up on something, it’s worth paying attention to. Oh, and here’s the YouTube channel that you are talking about:

      The fact that this YouTube channel was set up for evangelism towards Israelis, is exciting. The Body of Christ is growing by leaps and bounds in Israel, and that is FANTASTIC!

      Thank you, Joel. Your comment made my day!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. Hi John,
    thanks for another great article, among many issues, I had no idea who is Khalifa Haftar; we’ll see what happens, but that’s amazing – not a single word in the Bible is used in vain. And I completely agree, good timing is out of my reach too.
    However, recently, I had some time to read a little about solar cycles and space weather, and… Knowing that Gog war will be accompanied by extreme seismic events, there is a clue, indirectly confirming your assertion (after 2017):
    to cite: “…strong association between eruption timing and the solar minimum is statistically significant to a confidence level of 96.7%.”.
    We are now slipping towards the bottom of historically weak solar cycle, to reach it around 2018-2019. And the clock is ticking:
    So, that’s a remote suggestion of 2018 (and on) being more extreme. On the other hand, we are already in the twilight zone, and I wouldn’t bet on entire free/calm year today. Also:
    -I’m scrathing my head, what is the plan for this meeting, to support the division of Israel, or just talk and announcements. But there is a possibility that it gets serious. If America (Obama administration) uses it as an excuse, and they take it to UNSC immediately – things get get serious very fast. And their choice of the date (big ‘ouch!’ for me – it’s… my birthsday).
    God bless you John!
    ps. a final remark, for T2L, who mentioned WWI last week – there is an excellent book about the start of WWI – “Guns of August” (by Barbara Tuchman), extremely well-written and packed with facts (imo, one of the best historic books). Amazing demonstration of how stupidity, pride, nazionalism pushes politicians to cross the line. Everyone knew, that it will be war like never before. Yet they were all playing their roles (another example of forgetting God while being in charge) until people started dying. Thousands. Then millions. I said ‘excellent’ about the book, but maybe another word is better – sad. It is sad, because now I clearly see 2016/17 in it, right before my eyes…

    • Hi Chris,

      More excellent material, and I haven’t forgotten the material that you shared with us last week, either.

      The evidence about the relationship between the sun and seismic events is increasing. And, electromagnetism seems to play an important role. Electromagnetic storms from the sun and electromagnetism from the ground. Apparently, when rock is compressed, when plates push against each other, there is an electromagnetic discharge.

      What we can do with this knowledge… is hard to say. Hopefully better prediction of earthquakes.

      But, your main point is that we are approaching the fulfillment of prophecy. God is proving to us that He is true, that His Bible is true. Those who reject this proof will have no excuse, when our Lord and Savior returns.

      And, that ‘peace summit’ article. This could get REAL bad. And, we should not let anyone fool us. This is about Jerusalem. They are attempting to wrest control of Jerusalem from the Jews. They are attempting to defeat God’s prophecy of the Last Days.

      It won’t work, and the world will be crushed by the attempt.

      Oh… and, um… happy birthday! Don’t let the foolishness in Paris keep you from celebrating one more year of life on Earth. We are certainly glad that you made it this far. May there be more celebrations.

      And, the ‘Guns of August’. I never read it, but I’ve heard a lot about it. The folly of mankind, writ large.

      Your comments are always a blessing Chris. Thank you. May the Lord guide you and direct you, in the dark days ahead.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Hi Chris,

      Thanks, will try to download the book. Bookstores and libraries are scarce where I live. There is a website where people can rent books for free: OpenLibrary.

      Yes, every passing day I see it clearly, too. But I am super excited about what our Heavenly Abba is doing, too! I see Him waking His people up, and I see the line drawn in the sand is well defined now. A chief rabbi in Israel said that the Israel is FINALLY realizing they can only turn to Elohim for help (the word in Jeremiah 2 is salvation, which means Yeshua, the Hebrew name for Jesus). We’re getting down to the wire! And the sheep and goat nations appear to be taking their places. Hey, even a candidate for the Conservative party in Canada (I am an ex-pat) has vowed to move Canada’s embassy to Jerusalem. Ok, I can’t really see that happening anytime soon, but at least there’s unprecedented talk! Not that moving embassies there is a GOOD thing, at least right now, as we know WHY foreign embassies would move there, but that it is a tell-tale sign of the days we are living in.

      Wow, I could hardly keep my feet on the ground for excitement this week. And at the same time, could hardly lift my head for soberness….

      Have a blessed week!

      Oh and happy b-day. Mine was a couple weeks ago…

    • Hi John, hi T2L,
      thank you, and may the Lord guide us and keep us through what’s coming!

      ps. the earthquakes – SuspiciousObservers just released their Disaster Prediction App:
      didn’t test it yet, but I noticed that, during last 2 weeks, their model succesfully nailed a few 6-7 mag. earthquakes, at least day in advance. It’s also a handy alarm tool for any important event happening on our Sun.

  3. Christmas is pagan so is new year and Sunday worship
    And please Yashua was born the Feast of Tabernacles
    You are truly a false prophet, please get an education and stop leading people astray.

    • Hi Carl,

      Is it wrong to praise God and celebrate the coming of Christ to this Earth?

      Does it matter that someone chose that day for somewhat less-than-accurate reasons?

      Is it wrong to choose one day, instead of another to gather together to worship God?

      Would you claim it to be heresy if we chose, say… Tuesday?

      Why do you claim, with such ferocity, that Jesus was born on the ‘Feast of Tabernacles’?

      Where does it say this in the Bible?

      I agree that He was NOT born on December 25th, but I am puzzled by your accusations.

      And, why do you choose Yahshua, which is not the name of Jesus?

      We know the Hebrew name of Jesus. It is spelled Yood-Shin-Vav-Ayin. If it were Yahshua as you claim… it would be Yood-Hay-Shin-Vav-Ayin. But, there is no ‘Hay’ in the name of Yeshua.

      Furthermore, claiming that the name of Jesus is Yah-shua, is to claim that Jesus is not Yehovah. You are claiming that Jesus is not God. You are claiming that that Jesus is not the Savior.

      Jesus IS Yehovah.

      He IS Salvation.

      He IS the Savior.

      The name Yeshua means salvation. And, Yeshua IS Salvation.

      Your accusations are false, Carl.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Lev 18:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
        Lev 18:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God.
        Lev 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
        Lev 18:4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.
        Lev 18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

        • Mr. Carl, when we present like this, we aren’t presenting in love; that means even if we are bang on doctrinally, we are still wrong. Why? Because our aggressive, non-life giving presentation pushes people away. It’s no better than when people tell others they are going to hell with out Messiah, not because they genuinely love that person, but out of a religious spirit. Generally, I find people are off anyway when presenting out of a religious spirit.

          I will be blunt. In all honesty, nearly everyone I have come into contact with, heard or read who used Yahuwah, Yashua, etc., has been downright nasty and unloving. I can think of only one single person who is not like this. That tells me that there is an unholy spirit connected to that movement, I don’t know what it’s called, sacred name? We are admonished not to argue about such things.

          My husband and I walked, no ran, from the Hebrew Roots movement because it has gone sour. We challenged our former Messianic rabbi. My husband had a several decade relationship with the man. We don’t want to be treated like second class citizens in the Kingdom, when Paul clearly teaches non-Jews get full rights, once we are grafted in, as a native born, and this reality is clearly seen throughout the TANACH, and confirmed in the New Covenant. Do we want to be pressured into Torah obedience like many Messianic Jews still demand? No, we want to freely choose to be obedient as the Ruach leads, because we GET to, not because HAVE to. I made a comment about this a few weeks back in one of Mr. Little’ blogs. When we burden ourselves like the Jews demand, the Torah, which should give us life (through Yeshua), instead brings death. Our obedience then counts for nothing. It becomes a deficit. And puts a really bad taste in people’s mouths!

          I don’t agree with everything I read from any Christian/Messianc site (I agree less and less with the later), as they are just as much in process like me, but I search out for what is truth and brings life. In fact, we are not meant to get it all by ourselves. Abba designed it that way! That’s why we need each other. Just lets stay in life.

  4. John,

    Re Pat Buchanan’s article:
    “Republicans are moving to exploit the opening by denouncing the resolution and the U.N. and showing solidarity with Israel. Goal: Replace the Democratic Party as the most reliable ally of Israel, and reap the rewards of an historic transfer of Jewish political allegiance.”

    My question is this: Do these political animals inside the beltway have any–ANY–real principles at all?? Or is it all just maneuvering for political advantage?

    Now, I’m not saying the position the GOP is taking is wrong. Far from it. But Mr. Buchanan, a longtime DC denizen who probably had more political knowledge and savvy in kindergarten than I’ll ever have, overwhelmingly casts this position in favor of Israel as being a political maneuver. So I’ve got to assume he knows something about the reality of the situation.

    It’s really sickening and disgusting. I mean, if you’re going to fight the other political party for a lifetime, tooth and nail, hammer and tongs, it’s reasonable to expect that there might be some principle involved, right? Or am I missing something here?

    I guess what I really want to know is: IS IT ALL JUST AN EFFING GAME??? Or do I reveal my naivete’ by even asking the question?

    Much more that I wanted to comment on, but this is enough here. Thanks for your blog and your commentary and sources.

    • Hi davidnrobyn,

      Unfortunately, having had the dubious opportunity to see ‘the game’ from the inside, for a VERY brief moment in time… yes, it really is just a game. And, I’m afraid that ‘EFFING’ is an appropriate adjective here.

      The only reason why the Republicans are less sickening than the Democrats is that we demand that they be less sickening. Were it not for OUR principles, these fiends from Hell would act EXACTLY as the Democrats act. (And they do, but behind closed doors.)

      And yes, I’ve seen it for myself, from the inner inside of the Indiana Republican Party. I was an observer of a few ‘backroom-smoke-filled’ meetings. And that was all it took. These people are without even a shred of morality.

      The Republicans are as rotten as the Democrats. They just seem less rotten on the outside.

      And, to be fair, there probably ARE some Republicans that have principles. I’m just not completely sure who they are.

      Having said that, a friend of mine goes to Mike Pence’s church. That friend says that his church pulls no punches, and is serious about their walk with Christ. I trust that friend, 100%. Mike Pence is NOT treated with any special deference at that church. So, maybe Mike Pence is as good as he seems to be.

      So, there might be SOME hope for America, because a real Christian is VP. But, only some.

      As for the rest… put them on trial for treason, and shoot them, when they are undoubtedly found to be guilty. Washington is the most evil city in America. In fact, now that I think of it… Washington is probably the most evil city in the world.

      My own feelings resonate with yours, DnR. I want to bash heads.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  5. Hi Everyone,

    The link to 2016 Year In Review – A Clockwork Orange – by David Collum was garbled. Here is that link, again:

    As I said, in the article:

    Okay, this is loooooong. REAL long.

    But, there’s a lot of humor here, and it saves me from having to write it, myself.

    There is some… language …in it. But, it’s also good writing, which I always like to see. I can promise more than a chuckle to those of you with a sense of humor.

    I hope that you enjoy that article as much as I did.

    Yours in Christ,

    John Little

  6. Hi John!
    Happy new year to all! Hope this next year is better for you and yours!
    Our family had a pretty good year in 2016, I hope yours did too.
    I came across this in my study time yesterday and felt the need to share it:
    Ezekiel 16:20-21
    “Moreover, you took your sons and daughters whom you had borne to Me and sacrificed them to idols to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter? You slaughtered My children and offered them up to idols by causing them to pass through the fire.”

    This was part of a message from God to Israel around 586 BC, when Jeruselam was destroyed by the Babylonians. I think this still applies to us! Look back on what has been exposed over the last year or two. Multiple multinational pedophile rings, raping, murdering and sacrificing children. Many of them coming from state run child protective services and foster care. Remember also we still have state funded abortion clinics killing babies and selling them for parts! Last count I heard, 60 million have died.

    60 million children killed while still in their mother’s womb! Let that number burn into your head! (Please bear in mind that I do not blame the women that find themselves in these dire circumstances, I think they have been poorly led.) Could we be inviting the same judgement upon our own heads?
    Why do evil people, meaning those in leadership positions, want to do these things?
    That would be another long topic. If you want to know my theory, hit me up.
    The real question is why do honorable men and women put up with the slaughter of innocents? What is more innocent than a baby?
    I am weary of playing defense, I say it is time for offense! Let’s get God’s message of love out anyway we can!
    If you have participated in these things in some way, there is forgiveness waiting for you. Jesus is waiting for you with open arms, all you have to do is call on him!
    We don’t fight this kind of evil with more anger and hate, but with prayer and love; kind, long suffering and unconditional love!
    Hope this note finds you and yours well!

    • What a beautiful comment, Michael. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer. They will know that we are His, by the love that we have. Thank you for that, brother. And, I agree with all of it. Those sacrifices to their evil god, weigh upon my soul. – JL

  7. Dear John,

    This is a great article addressing when Jesus was born- Jesus was born during the Hebrew fall feasts. His birth, death, resurrection, sending of the Holy Spirit, and soon return are all tied into fulfilling God’s FEAST DATES with us. That is the grand importance of the times, for Jew and even us uneducated Gentiles. The Bible does not address birthdays, and neither should we. In a Muslim country we were working in I ran on some information on Christmas and its pagan roots. I couldn’t believe it but the more I looked the plainer it got, that my thinking was wrong. Just like you said a couple weeks ago in your post about arrogance, we can be wrong and boy do I know that. This is the root- Nimrod, it is pagan Babylonian. Christians shouldn’t be celebrating it, and it certainly has nothing to do with Jesus or New Year’s his date of circumcision (isn’t Jan. 1 seven days later, not eight, anyway?). I was shocked to see in Kazakhstan “Father Frost” (Santa Claus) and everyone including Muslims having their picture taken with him. That was eye-opening. If we are supposed to be spreading the Gospel we are not supposed to be mixing in some strange, pagan thing, and that is what we have.

    We were completely startled at the significance of what has happened with the UN vote against Israel, with yet another date to “deal” with Israel before the inauguration. We really thought this was the highlight of the week’s news items, and surprised you relegated it to the last article post for this week, considering your high professed esteem of Israel and strong words against anyone who is against them. It seems all the attention to prospects for 2017 and beyond truly may be a moot point considering the seriousness of the immediate hour we are in. At any rate, the interview with John McTernan was very good and he said actually this UN resolution cannot be “undone,” so it is indeed very serious. They would have to defund the UN to stop this, so will that happen? We pray so. We would also recommend his book to all, As America Has Done to Israel, which we read before leaving the U.S.

    Isaiah 33:7-12 “Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. The land mourns and wastes away, Lebanon is ashamed and withers; Sharon is like the Arabah, and Bashan and Carmel drop their leaves. “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. The peoples will be burned as if to lime; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.”

    It is not 100% Obama. Obama is just there to sign papers, and pardon the previous administration’s war crimes. The powers that be (which Trump is a PART OF, not outside) planned this and are attempting to carry this out. The NATION and NATIONS are guilty. We are aligning with end-times prophecy. How tragic for Israel—and us. We need to pray for Israel and pray for us all.

    • Hi Gary,

      A very well-written comment. My own suspicion is that Jesus WAS born around the Feast of Tabernacles. But, since it was not specifically mentioned in the Bible, we can only label this as speculation.

      By the way, I believe that it is vital to make sure that we label some of the things that we say as speculation, if the Bible does not specifically say that what we are saying is true. Too many Christians have gotten sloppy in their thinking, and this has led to HUGE problems.

      But, I agree that NOTHING has been said about the need to celebrate the birthday of Jesus. And, it is clear to me that the Catholic church chose December 25th because of its pagan significance.

      When I am in Israel, I DO NOT celebrate Christmas in any way, and my church in Jerusalem doesn’t, either. This is a witness against the Catholic Church.

      However, here in Taiwan, where the Catholic Church is weak, I believe that we have more freedom. Our church has a service on Christmas Eve, where we sing praises to God and give the gospel message to those unsaved Taiwanese that we invite to attend. And, there have been precious souls who have come to the Lord, because they saw the love and devotion that we had towards our Lord and Savior.

      I believe that the issue is about communication. What do people see, when we celebrate Christmas? Do they see something pagan? Or, do they see the gospel message?

      If there is a question in people’s minds, then we should not be celebrating Christmas.

      As for the question of Israel, there are two reasons why I place Israel last. First, the purpose of Omega Shock is to warn Christians around the world of concrete threats to their safety, warning them of specific dangers that lie in their future. This does not mean that Israel is any less important to me. In fact, it is the most important place on the planet. Period.

      But, that’s also why I place Israel last, which is my second reason. The two most important places in a letter are the first sentence, and the last. In fact, in many ways, the last thing that you say is more important than the first.

      So, think of it this way: I place Israel last, because it is first.

      All who have been given a love for Israel, will not fail to see those articles about Israel.

      Remember also that Jerusalem is the key. Sha’alu shalom l’Yerushalayim, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. And, all who burden themselves with Jerusalem, will be crushed by that burden, that stone.

      I am glad that you are concerned for Israel. Too few Christians are. God bless you, Gary!

    • Here’s something that Dr. Michael Heiser presented as a possible date for Jesus’s birth, based on Scripture, Jewish Messianic tradition, and astronomy.

      The date might surprise some folks. In any case it’s an interesting study. Among the little tidbits: there is no record of how many wise men there were. The assumption is three because of how many gifts there were. Lots of other interesting things…

      God Bless,


      • And the guy behind the website (Mr.Davidson, or something like that) is very big on integrity. He’s has done some amazing work. So has Dr. Michael Lake.

  8. I have been a reader of your blog a long time. I read the below and I must turn you off. I would think of all people that you had respect.
    You may want to help people, I get that. But leading people to think/believe that the Word of God has errors in it… that is completely and utterly wrong.
    Check yourself John Little.

    No need to respond because I wont be reading your blog any longer. I have lost respect.
    This is what lost me.
    “Unfortunately, the King James version translates the above incorrectly.”

    • Hi Charles Long,

      I am confused.

      I never said that the Bible has errors. What I said was that the translators of the Bible have made errors. That’s a BIG difference. THE BIBLE was written in Hebrew, with bits of Aramaic, for the Tanakh (aka, Old Testament). The New Testament was written in Greek.

      THAT is the BIBLE.

      The translators of the King James Version probably did their best, and I believe that the KJV is the best translation, or… close to the best. (However, they were Anglicans and chose ‘baptism’ instead of immerse, among other transgressions.) The most accurate translation is Young’s Literal Translation, but it’s hard to read. I suspect that Jay Green’s translation might be the most accurate of the ‘readable’ translations.

      This is why I ALWAYS tell people to consult the original text, wherever possible. Jay Green’s interlinear Bible is a must-have for anyone who is serious about getting the Bible right. Another interlinear bible can be found online, here:

      I’m not sure if it has the same accuracy as Jay Green’s interlinear.

      Having said that, the Bible was meant to be read. Attempting to use a microscope to understand the Bible is… unwise. Read it. Grasp the entirety of it.

      Okay, ’nuff said.

      We do not worship translators. We worship God.

      I hope that you understand my point, Charles.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Please forgive me for going back on my word. Out of my own curiosity and pride I came back and read your blog. I must apologize to you for starting this conversation in the first place. And, I do completely agree with your first sentence. I say that jokingly… and laughing as I type it.
        It is difficult to tell the attitude of a writer. So please don’t miss-understand my attitude. I am not angry at you (anymore), I have calmed my blood. I have however un-subscribed and removed omegashock from my favorites. This will be my last post or read (really this time 🙂 ). I truly hope you understand. I can’t read or trust a source that insinuates error in my Bible. If you want to reply to me directly you have my email.
        Maybe I miss-understood you’re reasoning behind insinuating error in the KJ Bible. I never mentioned that you actually said there is error in the KJ Bible. But, you do insinuate it. And before my top pops from anger, I do not worship man/translators. I bow to no man. However, I do believe in the inspiration, preservation, canonization and translation (rendering into other languages, NOT changing the meaning) of the word of God.
        I was just like you once, I believed that the Word of God must be dissected by using the Traditional and yes to my deep regret and shame the Alexandrian text’s (I have repented of that). I used Tyndales, Coverdales, Matthews, etc.. I have a Hebrew Old testament and yes, a Greek New Testament. Christian college and the modern church taught me how to miss-trust the bible instead of a simple faith in the scriptures. Thankfully and eventually the Holy Spirit worked in me to simply read the KJ Bible that was prepared for us. The Bible that I once said had errors by saying things like “the KJV should read…..” or “the translators missed it by saying…..”. It was my pride and arrogance that blocked what God has prepared for us. It was my pride that thought I was more intelligent than the dedicated translators that gave their lives so the Word could be spread and shared. It was my arrogance that I thought I knew better than the Holy Spirit because I believed the Bible should read or say something different, even a tiny word like “all”. I realize now that the KJB says exactly what it should, no more and no less.
        I even believed as you do concerning the words “immersion” versus “baptism”. Please just read the Bible and maybe you will see it was translated into exactly the word that it was meant to be. It is just more proof that the Holy Spirit preserved the Word no matter what the man/translator believed.
        The beauty of the KJ Bible goes deeper than the mere vessels that translated it into languages.
        The KJ Bible is beautiful in its flow. It doesn’t contradict. It is grammatically, spiritually and mathematically correct (and please do not put more words into my mouth by saying or thinking I am promoting numerology).
        The fact of the matter is I have come to deeply love the Bible and the Scottish border/English country side blood in me gets angry when the KJB is insulted. I strongly suggest you take your own words into consideration and simply read the Bible. Don’t un-wittingly insult the Holy Spirit by saying things like “Unfortunately, the King James version translates the above incorrectly.” That does insinuate error whether you realize it or not. To say those things insinuates that you don’t believe in the preservation of the scriptures in the KJB. It plants tiny seeds of doubt in your readers. We both know those seeds can grow into trees. Please dont be responsible for planting doubt. I would suggest you stay on course with your calling of warning people what is to come. You are so very good at that. Translating what the Holy Spirit already has… well.. thats just a waist of time.


      • Hi John,

        Thank you for this comment. Funny because I was gonna ask you regarding Bibles translated into English. We do use KJV. I also love your comment regarding not worshipping translators, but GOD.

        Now, I apologize ahead of time because I am about to hijack Charles’ post and go off the tangent somewhat. LOL..

        Unfortunately, as you know, the Bible is also mistranslated (whether on purpose or not is another story). For example, here is the states the group of Black Americans who call themselves “Hebrew Israelites” have grown in popularity. Personally, I think this group is a cult and racist. It’s interesting how this group grew along with BLM, another cult and racist group.

        Many people are getting deceived, Brother John. But we both know this would happen towards the end..

  9. Dear Brother John: I am struggling, I admit. Can I play devil’s advocate for a minute? Why do I need to prepare for what’s coming? Why do I need to save my life here? If God has work for me to do, won’t He provide for me to do it? The two examples in the Bible I can think of for the first preppers are Noah and Joseph, but in both cases they were led to prepare to basically save humanity. What would have happened if Noah had NOT built the ark? Would all of humanity have just perished? Or would God have chosen someone else? Did He choose Noah because He knew he was listening? What if Joseph had died in prison, or the butler had never remembered his name? This all goes to pre-destination, a concept I have always struggled with. If God chose me before I was even born, do I really have free-will? What if I decide to give all my preparations away tomorrow, take the blue pill and wipe my brain clean of all that I know? Will God draw me back the way He did Jonah to Ninevah? I can fulfill the purpose He has for me the easy way or the hard way, by being obedient or not. What if I don’t WANT to be chosen? What if I move to the city, live in a high rise and don’t even own a manual can opener? What if I don’t WANT to survive? I guess I don’t see this next round the same as the first two – Noah and Joseph. To me, the third time will be the final time. God has provided for our salvation, Jesus has paid the price for me – this was not true the first two times. What is left to accomplish except God’s judgment and satan’s banishment?

    I know our God is big enough to handle these questions – I just really need to know that everything I’ve done and sacrificed has a purpose, that there’s a reason for me to get up and keep trying every day. It’s so hard and I’m not sure how much longer I can keep going. It would help me if I could see a point to it all.


    After sending this, I realized that it may sound as if I feel my “sacrifice” of worldly things was too much for God to ask of me and this is ungrateful and indicates a lack of faith. I do not mourn any worldly goods that have been relinquished. I mourn the family and friends who have rejected the Truth and my best efforts have been as filthy rags to convince them. I mourn for those who survive the aftermath, myself included, and the horrors that they will have to endure – prepared or not. I mourn for the children who have been, or will be, mentally and physically abused with their hollow eyes that haunt me night after night . . . it’s more than I can bear – I can’t save them, I can’t even help them – I’m completely powerless. And maybe that’s the point after all. God created me to be a fixer, but maybe I need to be reminded that anything I’m even remotely able to “fix” is only through His power and grace. I’m just so homesick for Heaven

    • Hi Tess,

      THAT is an awesome comment. It speaks to all the fears, concerns and anguish that we all experience. I certainly count myself as one of those that resonate with what you’ve written here.

      Jesus commanded us to watch (Luke 21:36), which confers the requirement to respond. Since our vision is imperfect, our ‘watch’ will be imperfect, which means that our responses might also be imperfect.

      But… and this is important …we also have the Holy Spirit. It is a precious gift of God that will guide us, even though our struggle to serve God is imperfect. My own struggle to prepare for what is ahead is far from perfect. But, I do my best, hoping that I am wrong. And, I pray for those that I love, hoping that I’m wrong about the danger that they are in.

      This is all so hard, and the pain of this struggle tears at my soul.

      It is clear to me that you have done your best, and that you are doing your best. As you look back upon all that, all that you have done, you wonder whether any of what you did was worthwhile in the eyes of God. I struggle with that thought, constantly.

      The important thing is that God knows that you love Him. It was the one thing that I remember saying as a little six year old child, when asked why I wanted to be baptized. I said, “because I love God.”

      Everything that I have done in this life, that is of any worth, is because I love God. I can see that you do too, so I know that God will guide you. God has a purpose for all of us, and there is no sacrifice that is inconsequential, in the eyes of God. He knows our pain, and He bears our grief.

      As for the concept of predestination, there is no easy answer. The best that I can do, is to say that I live my life as if I have free will, yet I know that God is in control. How much control, is in the hands of God, which is where I want that control to be.

      The idea of ME being in control… is horrifying. I know my imperfections all too well. So, Paul’s writings about predestination are a great comfort to me. Yet, people have also stumbled by mishandling what he wrote. Even Peter said the same, when writing about Paul:

      As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

      – 2 Peter 3:16

      I’ve had many dear friends get upset over the question of how much control God has over the events of our lives, and that of all mankind. For me, the question is meaningless, other than the comfort I have that God is in control of MY life. And, I WANT Him to have that control.

      God is our country.

      Heaven is our destination.

      I am just glad that you and so many others are there to keep us company as we walk such a difficult road. We were chosen for such a time as this, and we will understand that, when we reach heaven.

      God bless you, Tess, for sharing that with us. It was a great blessing for me to read, as I am sure that it will be for others.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Thank you, Brother. Your comments are a great comfort and encouragement to me, as have been your prayers. I just wish I could read the last page to know how it all comes out. Will I be strong to the end? Only the Lord knows – I can only pray and hope that I go out on my knees. Thank you for your wisdom and discernment and taking the time to write such a beautiful response.

  10. May this year bring you many blessings Brother John!
    The JFK to 9/11 video is very important. It is worth the time to watch. I watched it the first time you posted it and now I’m trying to get everyone to watch it. That Frank Sturgis- what a Mephistophelian character he is. From Bay of Pigs to Dallas to Chappaquiddick to Watergate- this guy loved any demonic task.

    yes, davidnrobyn, it is all just a game- like the street hucksters that have the three shells and a ball.

    Brother John, what version of the Bible do you use? (you’ve probably told us before)

    Beware false prophets! and Israel- hating UN scumbags!

    your brother in Christ,

    • Hi Bondo,

      Well said, brother!

      Mephistopheles indeed.

      As for the translation that I read, it’s the KJV. When I struggle with the meaning of a verse, I go to the original text. My understanding of Greek is problematic, but my Hebrew is reasonably good. As for the most accurate and readable version of the Bible, I suspect that Jay Green’s KJ3 (aka, MKJV) is probably the most accurate of all the easy-to-read Bibles. A must-have is Jay Green’s interlinear Bible.

      You can find all that, here:

      Don’t forget to have a Young’s Concordance. (I like it better than Strong’s) Oh, and consult the YLT – Young’s Literal Translation – when there’s a question.

      Just remember to read your Bible. Every day. For me, that’s the One Year Bible, KJV:

      Tyndale’s format is good, and I am currently reading the electronic version.

      I hope that helps.

      Keep up the great work, Bondo!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  11. Hi Everyone,

    It seems that this time of year is becoming one of controversy. It seems that there is yet another disclosure of evil deeds and evil intentions on the part of someone – this time, someone called ‘V the Guerilla Economist’. His real name is Viji Varghese.

    Other parties are involved, and I have asked for their input before making known all of the evidence and my own conclusions.

    There may be ‘blowback’, but truth is truth and brothers and sisters in Christ have suffered harm.

    Please pray for all concerned that truth, honesty and righteousness will prevail.

    Yours in Christ,

    John Little

  12. Washington has been dark for a long time, but…

    Washington Monument goes dark, officials investigate

    The National Park Service tweeted Tuesday night that the Washington Monument’s lights went out around 7 p.m. Officials later said they believe there’s a problem with the automated program that controls the monument’s lights and electricians will be able to confirm whether that is the problem on Wednesday morning.

    The monument has been closed to visitors since August because of ongoing problems with its elevator, which carries visitors to an observation deck near the top of the 555-foot tall monument. It usually draws 600,000 visitors a year.


    Like it or not, Israel provides a check and balance against an out of control Iran. Now, we see Netanyahu being investigated for corruption in his home as authorities are looking for evidence. Even if the allegations are true, nobody of Netanyahu’s status would keep evidence of corruption in their home. Does anyone else smell Obama and the CIA, again? IS this a coup against the Israeli leader? Is it designed to destablisze the Middle East and present Trump with an impossible situation when he takes the oath of office?

    WAR GAMES US sends special forces to RUSSIAN BORDER as NATO is poised to strike back against Vladimir Putin’s ‘aggression’

    Russia is reportedly deploying nuke-ready missiles in the province of Kaliningrad which borders Lithuania

    • Hi gibby62,

      Israel has been a thorn in the side of the Elite’s plans for global hegemony, for a very long time.

      So, I think that Dave Hodges is right on this one.

      The USS Liberty was an attempt by the US to create another war in the Middle East by convincing Israel to attack that ship. And no, Israel did NOT know that it was American. And yes, it was Lyndon-burning-in-Hell-Johnson who did it. I grind my teeth just thinking about all the evil that Johnson did.

      And then, even MORE criminal evil on the border with Russia. This kind of stupidity makes me want to scream. The problem is that it’s much more than mere stupidity.

      They DO NOT CARE about the numbers of people who die in the petty games. They’re psychopaths. Every stinking one of them.

      And, it’s treason.

      Thanks, Gibby, for sharing this with us.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
