AGENDA 21- EARTH’S SUSTAINABILITY AND DEPOPULATION
All governments and kingdoms must have rules or laws to remain viable. Without rules or laws, it is anarchy. Also rules or laws without any consequences are just plain good advice. There is a coming New World Order of control, containment, confiscation, martial law and a police state. There will be definite rules and laws that will dictate our daily lives, our every movement, what we must do and follow, based on the foundational principles developed in the Agenda 21 of the UN Initiative in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Agenda 21, masterminded in 1992, laid the groundwork and scope of the New World Order. The ‘21’ in Agenda 21 refers to this present 21st Century. What America is experiencing today is moving us from the planning to the implementation stage of the New World Order– the present thrust coming from the Executive branch of the US Gov’t who is bringing about dramatic changes in the shape and form of leadership and the kind of society that will emerge as described in Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 deals with Earth’s Sustainability and Depopulation in the New World Order which will soon emerge when our present world order collapses due to extreme sovereign debts, economic depression, wars, great natural disasters, famines, diminishing earth resources and overpopulation. Agenda 21, an action agenda for the UN, will include other multilateral organizations and individual governments around the world that will be executed at local, national, and global levels.
A strong protagonist of the New World Order, Pres. George H. W. Bush, gave a speech ‘Toward a New World Order’ before Congress in Sep 11, 1990 (ironically the same day, but 11 years earlier of the planned attack and collapse of the iconic World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City in 2001). Bush also delivered a keynote speech on the Agenda 21 Rio De Janeiro UN initiative in 1992 and signed the document on behalf of the US, along with the 178 nations attending the Rio Earth Summit. By signing, each nation pledged to adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1995, Pres. Bill Clinton, in compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12858- Deficit Reduction Fund to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to ‘harmonize US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21’.
Agenda 21- A New World Order of Oneness, All United in 1
Agenda 21 is an action plan to be implemented for Planet Earth which calls for specific changes in the activities and lifestyles of all people, due to earth’s diminishing resources and exploding world population resulting in ‘a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being’. It is a profound reorientation of every human on earth, unlike anything the world has ever experienced, based on the fact that continued present economic development as we know it is unsustainable. Sustainable development, therefore is a program of action for local and global economic reforms– a program that has yet to be fully defined.. No one fully understands how or even, if, sustainable development can be achieved.. there is growing consensus that it must be accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a global basis’- Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives 1996.
Agenda 21 is an imperfect and deceptive plan to save humanity, but will instead subjugate and destroy us. Upon initial examination or cursory review, Agenda 21 may appear harmless as a piece of literature that describes a unique Utopian society to come. But careful study and reflections on what has happened in the past 20 years will show that we have been moving in the direction of the New World Order for some time now. The basic concept is Oneness– One-1, all United in 1, a New World Order of a One World Gov’t, 1 World in every way, controlled by 1 overall Authority; 1 people, 1 all inclusive way of life which is all for 1, and 1 for all kind of thinking, eventually under 1 man’s rule- ‘the man of sin, the son of perdition’, the notorious Antichrist alluded to in 2Th2:3,4 and in Re13 of the Bible.
The New World Order is a monogynous society that is based on 1 philosophy or 1 set of morals that is all-inclusive of everyone despite ones race, ethnicity, culture, religion, sex orientation, etc. Thus, the US Supreme Court legalizing Same Sex Marriage on June 26, 2013 for example, was a major breakthrough and achievement toward New World Order goals of acceptance, civil rights, and freedom for all. So also will the current open borders immigration issue be one of welcoming of all into the World Community, vis-a-vis the New World Order.
In the field of education, certain phrases were coined that were introduced as precursors to the coming New World Order and Agenda 21. They were phased into the curriculum to pave the way in developing a new mindset for the future goals of society. As an example, the concepts of parents, family, and marriage are now being redefined. Agenda 21 will settle teacher’s and administration’s concerns and conflicts over the coming new ways in education such as standardization of curriculum, core curriculum, teacher’s evaluation, etc. Another example of controversy to be resolved is sex education for all children, a critical area where politicians, administrators, teachers and parents are being challenged to come to a meeting of minds to develop a program that will suit everyone on the students’ behalf.
The Scope of Agenda 21– Managing Earth’s Diminishing Resources
Agenda 21, New World Order, a One World Gov’t, a One World Economy, a One World Church, a One god for all, are all related in that, these are plans to control population and earth’s resources with programs and methods for man’s survival. New terminology is being coined with commonly heard expressions today emphasizing unity and control: inclusion and compliance; ethnic diversity and multi-cultural appreciation; acceptance and respect for differences; blended family with expanded definitions of what constitutes family, marriage, single parent vs unwed mother; civil rights and freedoms, etc.
Environmental terms such as going green, sustainability, saving mother earth, organic/natural farming vs controlled GMO agriculture, global warming, carbon emission, eco-footprint are now in vogue. Illegitimate children, illegal vs unattended aliens, gays, homosexuals are negatives and nixed terms and considered politically incorrect speech. All that has been mentioned and more indicate that society today is in great flux, stretching and testing its limits and changing the complexion of life to determine what will be allowed or disallowed, and the enforcement by policing agencies, controls, and national laws that are taking place as this is written.
The Changing Face of the US Government
This can be seen in the dictatorial role of the Executive Branch through an excessive number of executive orders, ineptness and conflicts in the Legislative Branch that hinder effective gov’t, and the interference of the Judicial Branch in dictating, changing, and passing laws indiscriminately that have contributed to the unstable social and moral climate of our nation. Increasing gov’t control of land, water, food and natural resources have created uneasiness with regard to confiscation and unlawful seizure of property, many through claims of eminent domain.
A good example of Gov’t control of land was the recent April 2014 standoff with the Bundy Ranch in Nevada when the US Bureau of Land Management attempted to take cattle from Cliven Bundy for non-payment of grazing fee on disputed land. The Gov’t backed down amidst great adverse national publicity and patriotic uprising.
The militarization of police forces all across America with heavy armored vehicles, military armaments, tear-gas masks, and bullet-proof vests as evident in Ferguson, MO recently is a good example of the Gov’t’s preparation to quell anticipated major disorders dealing with race riots, food riots, looting, civil disturbance, terrorist attacks and the general uprising of the discontented and impoverished masses when the present order collapses. The Gov’t has already taken major steps to mitigate these anticipated problems.
In the health care sector in our overstressed hospitals, ‘death panels’ will determine who lives and receives care, and who won’t. Sterilization, biogenetics, vaccinations, abortions, end-of-life planning, and euthanasia will also be a big part of Agenda 21 in a broad-based depopulation program demanded by earth’s dwindling resources.
The Georgia Guidestones- Another Illuminati Footprint
The Georgia Guidestones is a granite monument unveiled in 1980 situated in Elbert County 100 miles east of Atlanta, Georgia. The gigantic mysterious Stonehenge-like monument is nearly 20 feet high, made up of 6 granite slabs, weighing 240,000 pounds. Though the sponsors of this behemoth desired anonymity, they left a message explaining the reasoning behind their rules. It lists 10 rules and ideals for an ‘Age of Reason’, the first being ‘Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature’. The world’s population then was about 5 billion and today, 7 billion, over 10 times their stated goal.
‘The Guidestones describe the ideal world, as envisioned by an occult secret society. These guides touch upon subjects that are associated with the New World Order, including massive depopulation, a single world government, the introduction of a new type of spirituality, etc. The monument is therefore proof of an existing link between secret societies, the world elite, and the push for a New World Order‘. Like the enigmatic symbols and phrases on the reverse of every US$ Federal Reserve Note, the Georgia Guidestones monument is another giant Illuminati Footprint ‘hidden in plain sight’ proclaiming a New World Order, which is steadily advancing in the 21st century.
Christians and Agenda 21 of the New World Order
For Christians in the New World Order, their faith will be severely challenged, tested and redefined by new laws and pressure put on its leaders and pastors for compliance to Agenda 21. Being a Christian will not be popular. Jesus said ‘And ye shall be HATED of all men for my name’s sake: but he that ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED’ Mt10:22, and many shall be killed Mt24:9. True believers that adhere to Biblical truths will be fewer in number as Apostasy within the churches is taking its toll, given over to the rise of many new religions and new spiritualities such as Chrislam, Dominionism, Kingdom Now, New Age philosophies, other cults; fueling escalating conflicts within their own religious denominations.
There will be a rise to a World philosophy of inclusivity that will separate and divide Christians into those who will follow God and His Word, and those who will follow man’s doctrines and dictates. While a few die-hard Bible teachers will remain for a time, they will be only a limited number of believers in the REMNANT of which Jesus sadly spoke of in Mt7:13,14. Greater Apostasy will occur with many Christians falling away into the Antichrist system and losing their salvation, as churches give ground to a Social Gospel only of brotherly love and false teachings, without repentance and salvation. There is only a small window of time available to speak the truth in love Ep4:15 in warning the body of Christ of the gross evil transformation that is happening.
The apostle Paul wrote ‘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.. For the MYSTERY OF INIQUITY doth already work.. And then shall that WICKED be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of SATAN with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED 2Th2:3-11. Sadly, many will lose their salvation and perish in hell because they did not love the TRUTH of God’s Word!
Agenda 21- The Precursor To The Antichrist Beast System of Revelation 13
Agenda 21 is an action agenda to resolve the forthcoming worldwide problems of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the deterioration of the ecosystems in the 21st century. Since Agenda 21 is still in a formative stage, it is a precursor to that which will eventually evolve into the Antichrist beast system spoken of in the Bible. Revelation Chapter 13 metaphorically reveals the Antichrist as a beast rising out of the sea, with the name of blasphemy written on his heads v1. He will be given great power and authority by Satan v2. Satan, the dragon, will cause people to both worship him and the Antichrist v3,4. These will be all that dwell upon the earth ‘whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world’ v8.
The Antichrist will be so powerful and feared that no one would dare war against him v4. He will blaspheme God, and the name of Jesus Christ v6. The Antichrist will war against God’s people, the saints, and will overcome them. He will be an absolute ruler over the whole world- all kindreds, and tongues, and nations v7 for 42 months v5. He will have a partner, another beast v11, called the False Prophet Re16:13, and like the Antichrist, will also have great powers. The False Prophet will promote worship of the Antichrist v12, and will do great wonders, to call down fire from heaven v13, working deceiving miracles v14, and will make an image of the Antichrist and give life to it v15. Anyone not worshipping this image should be killed v15. By deception v14, the False Prophet will also cause all to receive the Mark of the Beast in their right hand, or in their foreheads v16, which is the number of a man, the Antichrist, the number 666 v18.
The Mark of the Beast system will be tied into the New World Order, in an electronic monetary system in a ‘cashless society’ v17, because all the major currencies of the world such as the US$, €, £, ¥, etc., will by then have collapsed and become worthless under extreme national debts! Without the Mark of the Beast, many will starve and die, not being able to buy or sell, make transactions, get access to their personal accounts, or receive their pay/pension checks- their social security and Gov’t entitlements. This identification mark may be an implanted RFID computer chip (radio frequency ID chips), with all one’s personal vital information stored in a chip the size of a grain of rice.
Former Sec. of State Henry Kissinger once said ‘Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world’. Add to this ‘Who controls education and the media, will control the minds of the future’! This is what Revelation 13 is all about control– control of people, food, energy, minds, education, and money under the Antichrist. To survive, one must take the Mark of the Beast Re13:16-18. But the Bible also states that any man who worships the Beast and his image, and takes his Mark, will suffer God’s wrath, and ‘be tormented with fire and brimstone.. forever’ Re14:9-11. Those believers refusing the Mark of the Beast will be beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God Re20:4.
God’s Agenda vs Agenda 21 of the New World Order
The antithesis of the Satanic Agenda 21 to save mankind is God’s Agenda. GOD’S AGENDA is the KINGDOM OF GOD message which Jesus delivered when He first began his ministry 2000 years ago. The Kingdom of God message is the most important message in the Bible. Jesus said ‘The time is fulfilled and the Kingdom Of God is at hand: REPENT YE, and BELIEVE THE GOSPEL’ Mk1:15. Jesus told us to pray ‘Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy KINGDOM come, thy WILL be done in earth as it is in heaven’ Mt6:11. Jesus said ‘..seek ye first the Kingdom Of God and his Righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you’ Mt6:33. Paul wrote ‘For the Kingdom Of God is not meat and drink; but Righteousness, and Peace, and Joy in the Holy Ghost’ Ro14:17.
God’s Agenda is to bring forth the Kingdom Of God on earth at end of this age, to replace man’s corrupt kingdom! After his resurrection from the dead, Jesus spent an extra 40 days on earth to proclaim God’s Kingdom. Ac1:3 tells ‘..being seen of them 40 days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God’. Jesus needed more time to teach and preach the Kingdom of God. Basically, the Kingdom of God message reveals Jesus’ coming Millennial Kingdom which will soon be established on earth for a 1000 years.
So where is this Kingdom Of God today that Jesus said was at hand, what Paul said it is, and where does one find it? Is it in Israel or somewhere else? The Kingdom of God can be found in only two places– in the Bible- the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and within us. When the religious Pharisees who hated Jesus, demanded when the Kingdom of God should come, Jesus said ‘the Kingdom of God cometh not with observation.. for behold the Kingdom of God is within you’ Lk17:20,21. It is nowhere to be found on earth for everywhere there is only corruption and violence. Is60:2 states ‘..the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people..’. Jesus said that before He returns to earth, there will be a REPEAT of the evil, corruption, and violence as was in the days of Noah Mt24:37, Ge6:11 when everyone perished in the Great Flood except Noah and his family.
We are now transitioning into that period of extreme lawlessness and rebellion of man against authority, while God takes a back seat to the functioning of morality and order in the world. Because of dire and desperate hardships, multitude will give assent to have their lives be directed by the dictates of Agenda 21. They will accept the New World Order and a world leader, the Antichrist to help them out of their great hardship, suffering and misery. But Agenda 21 is a futile plan because all man’s agendas as influenced by Satan are evil and imperfect.
God’s Agenda is PERFECT without the frailties and foibles and manipulative schemes of man based upon his greed and corrupt nature that is always self-serving. Thus, Jesus will return to do battle with the Antichrist and the False Prophet, and cast them both alive into the lake of fire Re19:20. Man will no longer frustrate God’s Agenda as the Kingdom of Jesus Christ will then come forth for all to see. The most important thing we need to know is that God is in control and His name (Jesus) will be magnified 1Ch17:24. He is the Almighty God that even the wind and the waves obey His voice and His enemies will be trampled upon. Ps 68:1 states ‘Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered’. God will always prevail, and His Kingdom will come and His Will will be done in earth, as it is in heaven Mt6:10. ‘Even so, come, Lord Jesus’ Re22:20. Amen!
AMERICA’S ROLE IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER
The NEW WORLD ORDER of change, control, and confiscation has already begun and has been in the making for many years. The New World Order is already transitioning in America with our old ways being phased out and the new ways phased in. Man’s undoings have brought us to the place we are at now, through his greed, corrupt ways, evil deeds, and acts of violence. America is now in a big mess spiritually, morally, emotionally, and financially.
We are headed toward a breakdown and chaos in society and a REPEAT of the DAYS OF NOAH Mt24:37 when corruption and violence reigned Ge6:11, and only a faithful remnant of few in number will be saved. We are reaping what we have sown because of rejecting God and His Word, going after strange gods, shedding innocent blood, abortion, wars, and murder of humans. Thus, we see the great inroad’s Satan has been making especially in recent days.
The NEW WORLD ORDER by its very name will not just involve America, but will engulf and enslave the whole WORLD, and everyone in it. However, America has a very prominent, historic, and key role in the formation of the New World Order. The seeds and roots of the New World Order were planted in the early beginnings of the new American Republic with her Declaration of Independence from Great Britain in 1776. It will spread like cancer throughout the world with the collapse of the US$ due to the extreme growth of the US National debt held by many foreign countries.
America is the WORLD GREATEST ECONOMIC AND SUPER POWER and the US$, the WORLD RESERVE CURRENCY, but it is also the WORLD GREATEST DEBTOR NATION. Because of our huge insurmountable debt is also held by many other nations, an imminent collapse of the US$ will plunge the entire world one day into the New World Order of a One World Government, One World Economy, One World Society, and a One World Religion controlled by the Antichrist in the Beast System as prophesied in Revelation chapter 13.
Re12:12 warns ‘Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time’ meaning the establishment of the satanic NEW WORLD ORDER is now being accelerated! The ANTICHRIST, the surrogate of SATAN, will soon rule in the POST-CHRISTIAN AMERICA and in the rest of the WORLD, subsequent to the collapse of the US$ and the US economy, introducing a CASHLESS SOCIETY and the MARK OF THE BEAST in the coming GREAT TRIBULATION Re13:16-18.
Early History of the New World Order Conspiracy- the ILLUMINATI
In 1798, our 1st president George Washington, received a letter of warning from a Christian pastor Rev. G.W. Snyder . Snyder wrote ‘It was some time since that a book fell into my hands entitled “PROOFS OF A CONSPIRACY by John Robison,” which gives a full account of a SOCIETY of FREEMASONS, that distinguishes itself by the name “of ILLUMINATI,” whose plan is to OVERTURN all government and all religion.. and who endeavour to eradicate every idea of a SUPREME BEING.. A thought suggested itself to me, that some of the LODGES in the United States might have caught the infection, and might cooperate with the ILLUMINATI.. They use the same expressions and are generally men of NO RELIGION. Upon serious reflection I was led to think that it might be within your power to prevent the horrid plan from corrupting the brethren of the English Lodge over which you preside’.
Washington, like many of our founding fathers, was a Mason, but not an ILLUMINATI! Before his death in 1799, George Washington read ‘Proofs of a Conspiracy’ and immediately expressed his belief to Rev. Snyder.. that the designs of the ILLUMINATI were already infecting our country. In his reply to Snyder, Washington stated a WARNING TO AMERICA: “It was NOT my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the ILLUMINATI.. had NOT spread in the United States. On the CONTRARY, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder.. the Democratic Societies in the US, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is TOO EVIDENT to be questioned.”
Here we see that the plans of the ILLUMINATI in America were for a godless One World Government aka the NEW WORLD ORDER, which is prominently and boldly printed, and proudly proclaimed on every US$ Federal Reserve Note as printed in 1935, about 80 years ago.
The ILLUMINATI- An Evil Cabal
The ILLUMINATI is a satanic cult founded by Adam Weishaupt on May 1, 1776 whose goals were to expunge the world of belief in Almighty God and Jesus Christ, to overthrow all gov’ts through financial deceits, and to bring forth an illumined godless society, under a One World Government, in a New World Order controlled by an absolute dictator. The ILLUMINATI today is comprised of world-wide intellectuals, super-wealthy elites, influential media executives, famous Hollywood entertainers, and powerful private bankers. The ILLUMINATI also ordains certain individuals to be elected into high office to exact their plans for world domination, especially the office of the US Presidency.
The ILLUMINATI is controlled by Satan, the master deceiver- the father of lies Jn8:44, who will bring forth the Antichrist and the Beast System mentioned in Revelation chapter 13, and in Daniel chapters 7,8,9. The apostle Paul wrote ‘Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the WILES of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places‘ Ep6:11,12. Paul wrote ‘.. (Satan) the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them‘ 2Co4:4.
The financial arm and economic ploy of the IILLUMINATI is the Federal Reserve Bank created in 1913. The political governing body of the ILLUMINATI NEW WORLD ORDER is the United Nations founded in 1945 after World War II, and is now located in New York City on land donated by the super-rich Rockefeller Foundation. The UN Agenda 21 on Earth Sustainability and Depopulation initiative formulated in 1992 at Rio De Janeiro, Brazil signed by 178 nations spelt out the gist of the NEW WORLD ORDER for this 21st Century. The UN also has its own growing peace-keeping army of nearly 100,000 troops.
The New World Order- Enter the Federal Reserve Bank
The Federal Reserve Bank is not owned by the US Gov’t. It is a very clever name for it is not FEDERAL but a PRIVATE BANK that holds no real reserve for the US. The FRB is owned by a few of the wealthiest men in the world. The US Congress gave up its constitutional authority to ‘coin money’, by approving the formation of the Federal Reserve System 100 years ago on Dec 23, 1913, to take control of the US money supply. In 1944 under the Bretton Woods agreement during World War II, 44 major nations of the world accepted the US$, backed by gold, as the world’s reserve currency, meaning the US$ were accepted and used as an exchange currency for world trade. However in 1971, Pres. Nixon closed the ‘gold window’ of US$ convertibility due to a shortage of US gold. Despite the US$ no longer being backed by gold, the FRB continued to print enormous amounts of US$ out of the thin air and the world continues using them.
As a result, the fiat paper US$, worth a 100 cents in 1913 is now worth less than 5¢ today, due to monetary price inflation. Thus, many countries are very unhappy with the uncontrolled US debt and the declining value of the US$. Countries such as Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa are beginning to openly reject the US$, and recently started the BRICS Bank based in Shanghai, China, to skirt control of the US$ by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The BRICS Bank is seen as a 1st step to break from the hegemony of the greatly devalued US$ in global trade.
History of the Growth of the US National Debt – Prelude to the New World Order
It took the US over 200 years (1982) to reach a $1 trillion in national debt, then 4 years later (1986) to double to $2 trillion; then 6 years (1992) to double to $4 trillion; 14 years (2006) to double again to $8 trillion, and finally only 6 years (Sep 2012) to double to $16 trillion. Since 2008 the US national debt has increased from $10 trillion to over $17.5 trillion today, a 75% increase in just 6 years; an equivalent debt of over $55,000 for every man, woman, and child in America.
Due to uncontrolled federal spending and insufficient tax revenue since 2008, the FRB resorted to a program called QUANTITATIVE EASING, the creation of enormous amounts of fiat paper money out of thin air, to handle our nation’s monetary shortfall. If one includes all personal, corporate, institutional, municipal and federal US Gov’t debts, the amount totals an estimated $60 trillion, equal to a staggering $200,000 for every man, woman, and child in America.
Our insurmountable debt is unsustainable which will result in a soon collapse of the US$ nationally and internationally. With an estimated over 50% of all US$ today held in foreign hands, the collapse of the US$ due to excessive money printing and US immense debt will have brutal and ruinous ramifications worldwide. This will bring forth the NEW WORLD ORDER of control, containment, confiscation, martial law and a police state not only in America, but also in the rest of the world.
The Coming PLANNED CHAOS- The Key to the New World Order
A PLANNED CHAOS is the key to implementing the New World Order. Chaos has a key role and will be the prelude to the diabolical New World Order! A little-known Latin motto invented by the Freemasons in 1802, ORDO AB CHAOS– ORDER OUT OF CHAOS, is now taking place in many sectors of our society. By destabilization of every aspect of our society- moral and spiritual values, military, industry, education, economy, and finances, America is now at the brink of entering into the NEW WORLD ORDER.
A very good example is the recent flap over lax border enforcement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, resulting in a great influx of a projected 100,000 illegal immigrants into the US in 2014 alone. America is broke, our inner cities fraught with many problems, increasing homelessness, crime, and violence; sharply rising food prices, very high number of people unemployed (contrary to the contrived low 6.2% US unemployment rate), our prisons over-crowded, our hospitals stressed out, and yet our Gov’t is welcoming many immigrants from Central America to live here. Many of these illegal immigrants are not just young children, but also hardened teenagers on drugs, drug pushers, gang members, and many are sick and disease carriers. They are no longer ‘illegals’, but considered ‘refugees’, and granted asylum to live in America. This is crazy and a PLANNED CHAOS by our leaders.
Chaos is also reigning in many other parts of the world. The present wars and conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Israel, Gaza, and the Ukraine are good examples of Chaos. Ethnic cleansing with the eviction and murder of many Christians in Iraq, after the US spent over $2 trillion over 10 years going broke with over 10,000 soldiers and contractors killed to bring order there, reveals the great inroads Satan has made.
Satan, whose jobs is to steal kill, and destroy Jn10:10, is also the author of Confusion and Chaos. Jas3:16 states ‘For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work’. Here is a timely post regarding the coming economic and financial global CHAOS. http://usawatchdog.com/the-chaos-is-planned-rob-kirby/
Announcing the New World Order- the US$ Federal Reserve Note
Since 1935, on the reverse face of every US$ FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE, there are some very strange and cryptic MASONIC and SATANIC symbols and phrases proclaiming a NEW WORLD ORDER. On the left ‘The GREAT SEAL’ there is the ‘ALL-SEEING EYE’ of the Egyptian god HORUS, the ‘Great Pyramid’, and Latin words ‘NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM’, a ‘NEW WORLD ORDER’ and ‘ANNUIT COEPIS’ meaning ‘HE HAS FAVORED OUR UNDERTAKINGS’. Together these two phrases mean ‘OUR NEW WORLD ORDER IS NOW A SUCCESS’!
Then on the right seal ‘Of THE UNITED STATES‘ is the phrase E PLURIBUS UNUM- another Latin phrase which means ‘FROM MANY, ONE’, which points to the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT in the NEW WORLD ORDER! In order for the NEW WORLD ORDER of control, containment, confiscation, martial law, and a police state to come forth in AMERICA, our present AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE- of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; our freedom of speech, religion, possession, movement, and to bear arms must collapse or be eliminated.
The following is from THE NEW WORLD ORDER IN YOUR POCKETBOOK: http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=22184
The very US$ bills that are in your pocket right now bear the signature of the ILLUMINATI cabal that put them there. Have you wondered what all those signs and symbols refer to? The bills may say “In God We Trust”, but it’s not the God of the Bible.
1) Novus Ordo Seclorum: A Latin phrase which means ‘a new order of the ages’ is born. Literally, it is calling for a NEW WORLD ORDER.
2) Annuit Coeptis: A Latin phrase which means ‘He has favored our undertakings’.
3) The Egyptian Pyramid: One of the great ILLUMINATI symbols, the triangle, representing the ancient wisdom of Egypt.
4) The All-Seeing Eye Of Horus: Horus was worshipped in the ancient world as a god of protection.. The All-Seeing Eye is taken from the left eye.. of Horus. There is much pagan Egyptian mythology in the roots of Masonry.. The Capstone, the All-Seeing Eye, is the completion of the Great Illuminati Pyramid!
5) 13 Levels: The pyramid has 13 steps or levels leading up to the incomplete Capstone. In the Bible, 13 is the number for rebellion i.e. Revelation 13. America was created when our founding fathers rebelled against King George. In the official magazine of Freemasonry, The New Age, there is a detailed explanation and admission from the Masons that the symbols on the US$ are indeed Masonic.
6) MDCCLXXI: The Roman numerals refer to the ILLUMINATI founding on May 1, 1776, and not to America’s on July 4th, 1776.
7) 13 Stars: Again, the Biblical number for rebellion 13- forms the basis of the Great Seal. The number 13 is all over the US$.
8) E Pluribus Unum: Latin phrase meaning ‘FROM MANY, ONE’ or a One World Government. The phrase has 13 letters. Amazing coincidence.
9) Spider’s Web: When you look closely at the background pattern of the US$, you will clearly see that it is a spider’s web- represented death, treachery and conquest. Also a Bohemian priest with a tiny human Skull embedded in the web!
10) Olive Leaves: The Eagle is holding 13 olives leaves and 13 arrows. The olive leaf is a sign of peace, but the eagle’s claws are closed to represent that these things are being taken away, and not being offered. The arrows are a symbol of war.
11) Department of the Treasury Seal: On the FRONT of the US$, to the right of George Washington‘s portrait is the Seal of the Department of the Treasury. It comprises of a key, the scales of justice and a square- very important Freemasonry symbols.
The NEW WORLD ORDER appears to be in the making as we are now witnessing very unusual and repressive things happening in AMERICA never imagined before, such as total surveillance by the National Security Agency- NSA, the Department of Homeland Security- DHS armed to the teeth with 1.6 billion bullets, five times as many bullets as there are people in America, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement- ICE lax border enforcement to prevent illegal immigrants that are entering the US in droves.
Pres. Ronald Reagan once warned ‘A nation that cannot control its borders is no longer a nation’. Reagan also said ‘If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to, for America is the last stand on earth‘. Pres. Reagan was so prescient, words spoken about 30 years ago, of grievous things happening today!
The churches must not be silent regarding the NEW WORLD ORDER and the SATANIC ANTICHRIST BEAST SYSTEM coming soon as in Re13. Christians need to be warned and be prepared for the coming great evil, and their faith in the Lord needs to be strengthened! Is60:2 states ‘..behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people..’. But God has the answers for our safety, survival, and deliverance from evil as in the Lord’s prayer Mt6:13, as found in the Holy Bible!
Jesus said ‘Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted WORTHY TO ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man’. The Rapture is our only ESCAPE! But Jesus is only coming back for the wise virgins Mt25:4; for a pure and holy people Ep1:4, 1Jn3:3, a Church without spot or wrinkle Ep5:27. Many Christians, aka foolish virgins Mt25:12 will be left behind for they were not ready Mt24:44.
In The Coming Great Worldwide Tribulation Part I, it was discussed ‘What is Tribulation‘, How long is ‘the Tribulation‘, and what is the ‘Great Tribulation‘? It was also mentioned that ‘the Tribulation‘ will be worldwide and is synonymous with the term ‘Great Tribulation‘. It will not be 7 years long as many believe (See Part I), but only 3½ years as revealed in the Holy Bible, particularly in the book of Revelation.
Revelation chapters 6 through 16 reveal that there will be 21 specific judgments to affect the whole world which will be the wrath of God ‘poured’ upon the earth on a sinful and rebellious people. The judgments will include the world’s greatest war, drought, famine, persecution, storm, disaster, pestilence, epidemic, scorching, plague, and earthquake to come; all never ever experienced before in intensity and in magnitude. It will be the most fearful and demoralizing time to be living on the earth. Lk21:26-28 state
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
The Redemption mentioned here is the Rapture of the Saints, that God has provided as an escape for faithful believers, for all those that are In Christ. This is now discussed here in Part II.
THE COMING RAPTURE of the SAINTS before the GREAT Worldwide TRIBULATION Part II
The concepts of the coming Rapture and Great Tribulation are intimately connected, with the Rapture occurring before the Great Tribulation takes place! The Bible bears this truth out in many places. The word Rapture is a commonly used term to describe an escape from the coming Great Tribulation. It comes from the Latin word ‘rapiemur’, which means to be ‘snatched up’, ‘caught up’, ‘raised up’, ‘to be seized’, or ‘to be translated‘ into heaven such as Enoch, Elijah, and Jesus were in the past! Paul wrote:
‘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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words’ 1Th4:16-18. Also, ‘In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed’ 1Co15:52.
Jesus has provided an escape when He will secretly come only for those ready for Him in the Rapture. Only faithful believers In Christ, who are watching and praying, looking for His return, obeying His Word, and readying themselves by being pure and holy, will escape the coming wrath of God in the Rapture, and not go through the Great Tribulation. Here are some Tribulation and Rapture scriptures that substantiate this point:
Ro1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men..
1Th5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Re3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
1Th1:10 ..wait for his Son from heaven.. even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
Lk21:28 ..when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Lk21:36 Watch ye.. and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Heb2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation..
1Co10:13 ..God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape..
Ep1:13 ..after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your Salvation.. ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise..
Ep4:30 ..grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Jn14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
2Co6:17 ..come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
1Jn2:28 ..abide in him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
1Jn3:2 ..now are we the sons of God..we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Mt16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
Re22:12 ‘..behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according to his works shall be.
Tit2:13 ‘..Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ..’
(In the King James Version (KJV) Bible, there are key words or phrases that are repetitive, which often help in giving revelation and deeper understanding of the scripture verses. For example the words WRATH, SALVATION, REDEMPTION, ESCAPE, SEALED, RECEIVE, and REWARD are repeated in several of the scriptures above. Likewise there are phrases such as ‘COME TO PASS‘, and ‘WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR‘ that are also repeated. Often times, these repeated words and phrases are related in meaning, and when searching for them, the Bible gives a clearer picture of what the Holy Spirit wants to reveal to us. Jesus said ‘Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me‘ Jn5:39.)
Here are the explanations of the scriptures above: The Bible states that the WRATH OF GOD is against all ungodliness and unrighteousness Ro1:18. There is a coming WRATH OF GOD upon all mankind (GREAT TRIBULATION), but not upon faithful believers 1Th5:9. The GREAT TRIBULATION is also called the HOUR OF TEMPTATION which will try all that dwell on the earth; but we are to wait patiently for Jesus Re3:10, who shall delivered us from the WRATH to come 1Th1:10. Jesus then said when these things begin to COME TO PASS (before the GREAT TRIBULATION), look up, lift up your heads for your REDEMPTION (the RAPTURE) draws near Lk21:28. Jesus then said to watch and pray that we may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all these thing that shall COME TO PASS (the GREAT TRIBULATION), and stand before Him (the RAPTURE) at His coming Lk21:36.
Lk21:36 and Heb2:3 both describe the RAPTURE as our great ESCAPE and great SALVATION. Ep1:13 and Ep4:30 both state that believers are ‘SEALED with the Holy Spirit of Promise (the RAPTURE)’, unto ‘The Day Of REDEMPTION (the RAPTURE)’. The Promise of the RAPTURE was also given by Jesus when He said ‘I go to prepare a place for you.. I will come again, and RECEIVE you unto myself (the RAPTURE); that where I am, there ye may be also’ Jn14:2,3. Paul also wrote that if we separate ourselves and be holy, God will RECEIVE us (the RAPTURE) 2Co6:17. The apostle John said to abide in Jesus; that, WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR, we may have Confidence, and not be ASHAMED Before Him At His Coming (the RAPTURE) 1Jn2:28. This verse also suggests that some people will be ASHAMED before Him at His Coming; they were NOT READY! Also WHEN HE SHALL APPEAR (the RAPTURE), we shall be like Jesus for we shall see Him as He is 1Jn3:2!
Finally, Jesus will REWARD us at His coming, according to our works Mt16:27, Re22:12. Thus, the RAPTURE is our ESCAPE and our REWARD– to be saved from the coming GREAT TRIBULATION! The RAPTURE is also our REDEMPTION and SALVATION, and our BLESSED HOPE. Paul told us to look for that BLESSED HOPE (the RAPTURE), and the GLORIOUS APPEARING of our Great God and Saviour, the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ Tit2:13!
In conclusion, there is a GREAT TRIBULATION coming soon upon the earth as prophesied by Jesus in Mt24:21 and in the book of Revelation! Presently, the earth is going through tremendous convulsions with nations rising against nations. There are wars and rumors of war, great earthquakes, droughts, famines, and great natural disasters. Add to this the great economic woes and the slowing down of the world’s economies especially in America and Europe, both in near collapse due to extreme indebtedness. The GREAT TRIBULATION of 3½ years may be sooner than later, and perhaps right around the corner. The recent destabilization of the Middle East and the further isolation of Israel by the United Nations in granting Palestine non-member status by a vote of 138 to 9, are also sure signs of a great war coming in the last days.
But all this is necessary, for all Bible prophecies must be fulfilled before the establishment of the millennial kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth. The AntiChrist will arise up during the GREAT TRIBULATION, and ‘destroy wonderfully’ Da8:24. He will put the entire world under his diabolic rule in a NEW WORLD ORDER- a One World Gov’t, One World Economy, and a One World Religion. Then the people of the world must either worship the AntiChrist as their god, or be beheaded. Re20:4 tells ‘..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..’ (A word of caution- if anyone worships the Beast or his image, or accepts his mark 666 Re13:16-18, he will be doomed and tormented in fire and brimstone forever Re14:9-11).
Surely you will never read about this in the NEW YORK TIMES, but there is a coming GREAT TRIBULATION to try every living soul on the earth! Thus, we must be watching and praying, be pure and holy, and be ready to escape in the RAPTURE! The RAPTURE is an ELECTIVE EVENT, meaning only you can decide to be TAKEN by making yourself READY. Otherwise, you will be LEFT BEHIND; ‘For many are called, but few are chosen‘ Mt22:14! Paul admonished us ‘..work out your OWN SALVATION with fear and trembling’ Php2:12. Amen!
APOCALYPTIC SIGNS OF THE ENDTIMES
There are many apocalyptic signs today heralding that we are living in the last days. This post is Part II, continuation of The Last Days of the Last Age Before Jesus Christ Returns Part I that began over two weeks ago. It was postponed in order to write about Superstorm Sandy- the Angry Fury of God’s Wrath. Sandy wreaked great havoc and unimaginable suffering over the large northeast population corridor of the US. Because God is in control of the world and the weather, Sandy was a sure sign of God’s displeasure and judgment upon America- for rejecting Him and forsaking His ways.
AMERICA IN DEEP DECLINE AND UNDER GREAT FINANCIAL DISTRESS
The American people have recently chosen whom they want to lead them as their president for the next four years, and this is what he faces- an America in decline and under great financial distress! Even now, it has been reported that for October 2012 the US budget deficit was $120 billion. Before the year 2008, this DOLLAR amount would have been considered a terrible deficit for any given year. But it now appears that the US is heading for its fifth $1 trillion budget deficit in as many years in FY2013, in runaway spending and shortage of tax receipts! In just 4 years, our national debt in a runaway mode has ballooned 60% from $10 trillion to $16 trillion. The US budget deficit will soon bring about a sharp downgrade of the US Treasury Bond rating, causing interest rates to rise sharply, the FRB Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) not withstanding. It will further exacerbate our weakening US economy, bring further disdain and weakness to the US$ as the world’s reserve currency, and cause a deeper recession!
America’s Coming Fiscal Cliff has now come front and center stage in our nation’s political and economic life, and the US Congress that has brought us this problem with their reckless spending over the decades, is now hard pressed to decide what to do to prevent America from crashing and burning over the cliff! Proverbs 29:2 states ‘When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn‘.
Will America and the rest of the world survive a financial collapse or is it already too late? Will the situation in the Middle East quiet down, or an apocalyptic war will soon break out at any minute? Will the nations of the world armed to their teeth with nuclear warheads refrain from using them, or will they be employed as ‘weapons of last resort’? Here we will look at the signs pointing out that we are living in the last days of the last age before Jesus Christ returns.
SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OF THE LAST AGE BEFORE JESUS CHRIST RETURNS
The Bible characterizes the end of this age as when travel and knowledge shall be increased. The angel Gabriel told the prophet Daniel, ‘But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the TIME OF THE END; for many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased’ Dan4:12. With the advent of the Jet Age travel and the Computer Age, this prophecy given 2500 years ago is now being fulfilled today in the ‘TIME OF THE END‘!

These events happening in world in the past 70 years since World War II tell us that we are living in the last days in a world that is literally falling apart. But there are still deadly more events to come. According to the Bible, there will be an increase in the frequency and intensity of earthquakes and other natural disasters. Man’s inability to govern himself and also live in peace with his neighbors is a telling harbinger of war and doom to come. Unlike never before, the major nations of the world today are in grave financial trouble, besieged with unbearable monetary debts, which will in turn cause a great worldwide economic collapse. This will then usher in the AntiChrist’s One World Government.
God hates idolatry, immorality and homosexuality. As God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah Ge19:24, He will also destroy the earth, for the whole world has gone into whoredom. Jesus likened the endtimes as in the days of Noah Mt24:37, when corruption and violence were rife Ge6:11, such as today. Thus God will destroy the earth again; this time not by water, but by fire as stated by the apostle Peter 2Pe3:10-12. The fire Peter wrote about suggests the detonation of nuclear warheads, for ‘the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up’. Jesus warned ‘Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish’ Lk13:3.
We are nearing the end of this age when all Bible prophecies written therein will be fulfilled. Our only hope and help is in the Lord Jesus Christ. Apart from Him, there is no salvation of either our body or our soul Ac4:12. Jn3:16 states ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not PERISH, but have everlasting life’. Without Jesus, who died for our sins and now lives, no one can be saved. Only Jesus can deliver us from the wrath to come 1Th1:10, by the Rapture of the Saints 1Th4:16-18, Tit2:13. We are indeed living in the last days of the last age before Jesus Christ returns to the earth to rule all of mankind. In the last words of the Bible, Jesus said ‘.. Surely I come quickly’ Re22:20.. ‘Even so, come Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.’ Re22:21.
Israel- God’s Measuring Rod; Friend or Foe
Four thousand years ago God told Abraham;
‘..I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed’ Ge12:2,3.
How the nations of the world treat endtime Israel will determine their blessings or curses. Recently it has been widely reported of an open feud between the US and Israel; of the US refusal to draw ‘red lines’ on Iran’s nuclear producing capacity, and the refusal of the US president to meet with Israel on this matter. God is using Israel today as a measuring rod of the nations of the world; to judge the nations whether they will support or reject tiny Israel! The prophet Joshua put it succinctly that God alone will fight for Israel:
‘For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you‘ Josh23:9,10.
Watch what is happening in the Middle East and Israel, a cup of trembling for these last days. The lineup of the nations and their armies has begun. The most important thing for the America is to be a friend of Israel. Soon we will see who will support or reject Israel, and what nations will God bless and who will He curse!
Presently, there are great turmoil and uprisings going on in the Middle East. US embassies in Egypt, Libya, and Yemen have been attacked and the US flag burned. An American ambassador and three colleagues have been killed in Libya supposedly because of a new derogatory movie being shown ‘The Innocence of Muslims’. These attacks on the US embassies have been coordinated by Muslim extremists on America’s anniversary of the 911 destruction of the World Trade Center on Sep. 11, 2001. So far, there have been over 35 protests against the US, over the film by Muslims from Indonesia, India, the Middle East to Africa! The lineup for the next great war has begun, with the whole world on a sure path to Armageddon! We will continue to look at Israel’s Role in the Endtimes in this Part II conclusion:
ISRAEL’S ROLE IN THE ENDTIMES- Recent Wars Against Israel
While Satan seeks to destroy Israel, God is using Israel to fulfill His endtime plan on earth. Satan has filled the Arab world with great hatred towards Israel, even till today. Soon the entire world will be engulfed in a war, where all the nations of the world will take sides either for or against Israel. Here are some recent scrimmages against the nation of Israel. Each time God intervened and gave Israel the victory, and God will one day destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem!
1948 War. As quickly as Israel was declared a nation, surrounding countries such as Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq attacked her. The coordinated Arab attack was soon halted, but the Jordanians were able to take control of old Jerusalem. The UN then negotiated a truce.
1956 War. In July 1956 Egypt’s Gamal Abdal Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal to halt shipping between the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean. In Oct 1956, Israeli General Moshe Dayan launched a successful air and ground assault into Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. Control over the Suez Canal was then turned over to the UN forces, allowing Israel and the other nations access to the Indian Ocean.
1967 Six-Day War. In May 1967 President Nasser mobilized units in the Sinai, and closed the Gulf of Aqaba to Israel, the seaway to the Indian Ocean. On June 5, 1967 Israel launched a massive air assault that crippled the Arab air capability and gained air superiority to protect her ground forces. Israel then won control over the Sinai peninsula after three days, capturing Jerusalem’s Old City from Jordan, and the strategic Golan Heights along Syria. By June 10 the war ended. Israel miraculously won again though she was greatly outnumbered! For the 1st time in 2500 years since the Babylonian captivity by Nebuchadnezzar, Jerusalem, the holy city of God, was again back in Israel’s hands!
1973 Yom Kippur War. On this Jewish holy day of atonement Oct 6, 1973, Egypt’s President Anwar Sadat launched a two-pronged assault on Israel. The Egyptian forces struck eastward across the Suez Canal and pushed the Israelis back, while the Syrians advanced from the north with Jordon, Iraq, and Libya in support. Israel was caught off guard for a few days, but eventually defeated the Egyptian/Syrian invasions.
1982 War. In 1982 Israel launched a massive preemptive attack to destroy the Palestine Liberation Organization bases in Lebanon. Israel then withdrew from Lebanon but maintained a policed buffer zone north of its border. Yasser Arafat later died, and the PLO no longer exist!
The Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Hamas in Gaza have since taken over from the PLO. They have been firing numerous short-range missiles, striking and killing over 10,000 people in nearby cities of Israel! Today there is a greater war looming that will greatly affect all of us on earth as the final chapter of God’s plan for mankind is being turned!
The Next Great War- The Ezekiel Chapters 38/39 War
Recently the war drums have been beating loudly as there have been talks of a Israeli preemptive attack on Iran’s nuclear capability. Nations are already taking sides with China, Russia, and Syria siding with Iran, and the US, France, and England meekly backing Israel. The next war could well be a nuclear war that would cause great devastation and bring havoc to 40% of the world’s oil being shipped from the Middle East. Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 speak of this coming great war, a direct attack upon Israel from the north, with a confederation of armies from several countries surrounding and near Israel, such as Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya! Nations such as Gog and Magog, Gomer, and Togarmah are mentioned but these names do not exist today. Bible scholars believe that these nations are Russia, Germany and Turkey. They will invade Israel with great ferocity from the north, but God will intervene and destroy them, with 5/6 of their armies destroyed Ez39:1-7. It will take 7 months to bury the dead v12, and 7 years to burn up the weapons of warv9. Then the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forever v22,28. The Antichrist will then negotiate a 7-year deceptive peace covenant with Israel, and in the middle of that period break it and desolate her Da9:27! This is the prelude to the final war- the war of ARMAGEDDON!
The Final War of ARMAGEDDON – A Nuclear War
God said in Zech12:2,3;
‘Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem’ v9.
Then Zech14:2,3 state
‘For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken.. half of the city shall go forth into captivity.. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle..’ and ‘.. this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth..’v12.
Here we see that eyeballs will disappear in their sockets and tongues will melt in their mouths. These passages describe the final nuclear war of ARMAGEDDON in Jerusalem in the valley of Megiddon Zech12:11, Re16:16. Jesus will then return the 2nd time to earth to fight for Israel, to battle the Antichrist and the False Prophet, and their armies, and cast both of them alive into a lake of fire Re19:11-20. Thus, we see clearly how God will use Israel to fulfill his endtimes plan and purpose!
America’s Role With Israel in the Endtimes- Love Her, Be Blessed; Reject Her, Be Cursed!
A nation is only as great as its leaders. It can also be said that a nation is only great if it has God’s blessings! God will bless those that bless Israel, and curse him that curse Israel Ge12:3. America, a world superpower, also has a great role in these end-times. Many sitting US presidents had to deal with the Israeli/Palestinians conflict issue. Briefly here are some of their actions:
- In 1948 Pres. Harry Truman gave immediate recognition to the new nation Israel.
- Pres. L.B. Johnson acknowledged America’s strong Judeo-Christian heritage.
- Beginning in 1983, Pres. Ronald Reagan signed strategic partnership memorandums with Israel, particularly in the area of defense and economic development. But in the 1990’s, things began to change.
- In 1991, in appeasement to the Palestinians George H.W. Bush became the first US president to call for ‘land for peace’- for Israel to give back strategic land won in the 1967 war!
- In 2001 Bush Jr. became the first president to call for a Palestinian State, telling Israel to give up the West Banks and Gaza to the Palestinians. Israel is reluctant to do so, for then she would be exposed to more enemy attacks.
- Recently Pres. Obama has also shown strong disdain toward Israel and also has distanced her! In these endtimes, America’s blessings or curses will depend upon our continued support or betrayal of Israel.
Someone once said ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today there would be no more violence. If the Israelis put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel’.
Apparently many presidents don’t know or believe in the Holy Bible! Ps122:6 states ‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee’. But America is doing just the opposite and is now in fast economic decline!
ISRAEL’S ROLE IN THE ENDTIMES– Love Her, Be Blessed; Reject Her, Be Cursed!
The world is heading for ARMAGEDDON because of its treatment of Israel. For many years now, Iran Pres. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the annihilation of Israel- that ‘Israel should be wiped off the map’. He recently said, ‘Israel is an insult to all humanity’. His invectives and tirades have inflamed the Muslim’s hatred for Israel. With the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings, once politically stable nations such as Libya, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria have been taken over by radical Muslims, and are now threatening the very existence of Israel. New Egyptian Pres. Mohamed Morsi recently stated the capital of Islam should not be in Cairo, Mecca, Medina, but Jerusalem. Morsi is calling for a million martyrs to march on to liberate Jerusalem. The prophet Zechariah wrote that God will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling and a burdenstone, and all nations that are burdened by her shall be cut to pieces, crushed, and destroyed Zech12:3,4,9! God’s endtimes role for Israel is certainly coming to pass!
Do you have an endtime focus? Do you believe that we may be living in the endtimes? Do you believe that we are living at the end of the age before the Rapture, and then the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ? If so, are you preparing and making yourself ready for His coming as Jesus told us to do so Mt24:44, Mt25:13? Or do you believe that things will continue as they always have been or things will even get better? God has chosen Israel to be His prophetic time clock, and knowing what is happening in Israel will give us clues how close we are to the end of this age!
Israel- God’s Prophetic Time Clock
Modern day Israel is in the forefront of world news today, as there is much talk of Israel making a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear capacity which they feel is a threat to their existence. Should this happen, there will be some grave consequences not only for the Middle East, but for the entire world. Besides this attack possibly turning into a nuclear conflagration, the economic consequences will also be great. Since 40% of the world’s oil that is shipped passes through the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow sea passage between Iran and the United Arab Emirates into the Indian Ocean, if there is war in those parts, oil prices will rise sharply and perhaps even double!
It has been reported that this strike by Israel could happen within the next 60 days; even before the next US presidential election! We are indeed living in very perilous times or in the endtimes! The Bible tells us that Israel is God’s prophetic time clock that relates Bible prophecies and significant world events to the endtimes that we are living in. God chose a people, the Israelites, to reveal Himself to the world.
From Genesis through Revelation, the Bible is only a 7000-year account of God’s dealing with mankind beginning with Adam. As 6000 years since Adam have already passed, some feel that the end of this age is coming very soon, and the next 1000-year reign of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem will soon begin. The origin of the nation of Israel goes back 4000 years ago, to the time of Abraham. God chose Abraham to inherit a land and to become a great nation. God told Abraham, ‘..I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed’ Ge12:2,3.
Throughout the Bible, God is always referred to as the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob Ex3:16,4:5, De29:13, Mt22:32, Ac3:13. Abraham was the father of Isaac, who was the father of Jacob. How did the name Israel come into being? God gave Jacob the name Israel when he had an encounter with and wrestled with God all night, and prevailed Ge32:25. Israel means to have ‘power with God and with men, and hast prevailed’v28. This reveals how strongly God feels about Israel. God will deliver Israel from all her enemies and will fight for her! The nation of Israel came into being through the 12 sons of Israel.
Since there is no nation called Abraham, Israel is that nation that God said He would make great! Israel became a mighty nation under Kings David and Solomon, but because of sin, disobedience and idolatry, the nation was divided into two kingdoms; each was later brought into captivity separately, and scattered by God for over 2500 years. Then 2000 years ago, God sent Jesus Christ to earth, a Jew, to save his people from their sins Mt1:21. The Bible states that Jesus was a descendant of David, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Mt1:1,2.
As Israel is God’s prophetic time clock, knowing what is happening to Israel today will give us clues to how close we are to the end that we are living in! Israel’s role in the endtimes is the focal point of God’s plan for mankind! What is the Endtimes, and Why Are We Living in the Time of the End? Before looking into Israel’s role in the endtimes, it would be best to define what is the ‘endtimes’, and discuss why we are living in the time of the end.
The ‘endtimes’ is a future time period as spoken by Jesus and the ancient prophets thousands of years ago as revealed in the Bible! It is about God’s closing plan for mankind which began 6000 years ago with Adam and Eve! The endtimes is a period just prior to the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ to earth. The disciples asked Jesus ‘..what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?’ Mt24:3. Jesus then gave a discourse on the endtimes found in chapters Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, and in the book of Revelation. They foretold what will happen in the latter or last days of man’s rule. The endtimes is a period signifying a paradigm shift from man’s rule on earth to the establishment of God’s rule and kingdom, with Jesus Christ as supreme Potentate. It is literally the time of the end of human government!
The endtimes will be a period of great duress, distress, deprivation, desperation, and destruction upon the earth. Major nations of the world will be embroiled in massive monetary debt problems, economic collapse, conflicts and wars, coupled with famines, great earthquakes, storms, and other natural disasters. Of the endtimes, Jesus said ‘For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved’ Mt24:21,22 .. ‘And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth..’ Lk21:25,26.
This will all happen during the 42 months of the coming Antichrist worldwide despotic reign- that ‘man of sin, the son of perdition’ 2Th2:3. Then Jesus will return to earth to defeat the Antichrist and establish His millennial kingdom on earth! Man has proven his inability to govern himself in righteousness and peace. The world is filled with evil and corruption, where earth’s resources are being greatly depleted, where great earthquakes and natural disasters are taking place, and the specter of major wars appears imminent.
A New World Order under the Antichrist is coming soon, before the return of Jesus Christ. The endtimes is a time of God’s judgment upon the earth when God will pour out His wrath on a very sinful, immoral, corrupt, and disobedient world! Though many are skeptical, there are many signs that point that we are living in the endtimes and heading toward the road to Armageddon, the last great war centered on Israel. Long ago, the Bible foretold of these very dire times today and what will happen next!
Israel Diaspora- Scattered Throughout the World
For over 2500 years from about 600 B.C. to 1948, the Jews were scattered and did not have sovereignty over their own land and the holy city Jerusalem. Israel was under foreign domination by the Assyrians, Babylonians, Macedonians, Romans, and Arabs. They were scattered throughout the world. Ps44:11 states ‘Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.’ and Ps106:27, ‘To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands’. Je9:16 states ‘I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known..’ and Ez12:15, ‘They shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries’. The Jews had no nation or homeland to return to until a recent appointed time by God.
TODAY! The Nation of Israel
Today After their very long 2500-year diaspora (scattering), tiny Israel was reborn as a nation by declaration of the newly formed United Nations on May 14, 1948. This was a fulfillment of a prophecy given by Isaiah before 700 B.C. He wrote ‘.. Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children’ Is66:8. Yes, Israel was born at once in one day as prophesied! The UN made this concession because of the great suffering of the Jewish people during WWII, when over 6 million Jews were killed! A desolate and desert land area in Palestine was given to the Jewish people for a nation called Israel!
Ezekiel also prophesied about endtime Israel being regathered from the four winds as a great army into a land of her own. This amazing prophecy is found in Ezekiel chapter 37 in the parable of the dry bones, referring to dead Israel coming to life again as a nation! Modern-day Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersey, only the 47th largest in the US, with about 9500 sq. miles of land. In this 80% desert region, Israel began to flourish and prosper, in fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. Is27:6 states ‘He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit’ and Is35:1, ‘The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose’.
Today Israel is a major exporter of citrus fruits and beautiful roses to Europe and other countries. Under the auspice of the Jewish National Fund over 250 million trees have been planted in the desert in fulfillment of Is41:19: ‘I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine.. the box tree together’. The land of Israel has certainly blossomed and become habitable with the resettlement of about 7 million Jews there. There are also 8 million Jews living elsewhere in the world, but mainly in America.
