Ezekiel 38 Gog Prophecy: Will Israel Be Unwalled Someday Soon?

Last night I had the pleasure of listening to three scholars discuss the end times on TBN. Normally, I don’t watch TBN much, because all the heretics wax prosperity on their stations. When I saw Jonathan Cahn on the show, I paused. He’s one of my personal favorites.

First, Irwin Baxter from End Time Ministries defended the post-tribulation viewpoint. Other than he is the most non-linear theologian on the planet, his post-trib defense is correct. He was given five to ten minutes to defend his position. He acquitted himself well.

Then Bill Salus http://www.prophecydepot.net/ defended the pre-tribulation rapture viewpoint. He rattled-off non-specific scripture like a machine gun for ten minutes. He wasted ten minutes of my life on rapture gibberish.  

Finally, TBN offered Jonathan Cahn thirty seconds. In those thirty seconds Jonathan edified and prophesied like a man on fire. He was worth the wait, and all the TBN shenanigans.
Why are Jonathan Cahn’s comments worth the wait? He is a Sabbath-keeper, and a Torah lover. He has a natural advantage over a Gentile Christian, based living a lifestyle similar to Yeshua’s lifestyle. There are times when people ask me, “How do you know the answer to that Bible question?” Umm, I live that Bible answer. I submit that the best revelations will be coming from men like Jonathan Cahn soon.

My opinion: In order to understand the end times, you must understand Torah first and foremost. It’s that important. That means you need to live Torah!
Let’s discuss one part of Ezekiel 38-39 (Gog from Magog) with a Torah reference, to prove my assertion.

“Thus says the Lord God: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth. Ezekiel 38:10-12 (ESV)
Old Gog was a Jew-murdering thug from the area of Turkey. Eventually we will see two more Gogs from Turkey. One Gog will kill Jews in the next few years. The other Gog will kill at the end of the millennium. Suleiman the Magnificent was a type and shadow of Gog. Is God telling us that we will see the walls come down in Israel in the next few years? Maybe. Or is He offering an obscured reference to Torah? Maybe. Yeshua almost always referenced Torah in all of His parables.

I believe that Ezekiel 38:10-12 is a Torah reference. He’s telling us that a condition will be met for Jubilee redemption according to Torah. What condition is that?
“The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine. For you are strangers and sojourners with me. And in all the country you possess, you shall allow a redemption of the land.

“If your brother becomes poor and sells part of his property, then his nearest redeemer shall come and redeem what his brother has sold. If a man has no one to redeem it and then himself becomes prosperous and finds sufficient means to redeem it, let him calculate the years since he sold it and pay back the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and then return to his property. But if he has not sufficient means to recover it, then what he sold shall remain in the hand of the buyer until the year of jubilee. In the jubilee it shall be released, and he shall return to his property.
“If a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, he may redeem it within a year of its sale. For a full year he shall have the right of redemption. If it is not redeemed within a full year, then the house in the walled city shall belong in perpetuity to the buyer, throughout his generations; it shall not be released in the jubilee. But the houses of the villages that have no wall around them shall be classified with the fields of the land. They may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the jubilee. Leviticus 24:23-31 (ESV)

My opinion: God is forewarning us that He will classify Israel, in the last days, as an unwalled country. Thus, according to Torah, He can redeem them. Ezekiel 38:10-12 is not a reference to Israel removing their walls. Removing walls would be silly, and pointless. My contention is that they will soon live like they are in an unwalled state, in shalom via the Antichrist. Watch for a sudden peace caused in mysterious ways. When other theologians warn you to watch for walls being torn down, please don't believe them.
Israel will be redeemed soon, and they will be released in the jubilee year. There will be no time limit, and no other restrictions based on Ezekiel 38-39. He will redeem His people! Count on it!
Shalom!

1943 To 2013: What Does This Seventy Year Time Frame Mean?

This morning, as I listened to renowned radio theologian Dr. David Jeremiah expound on the Book of Daniel, I felt the need to throw food at my radio. Why? When Dr. Jeremiah stated, “Prophecy scholars of today know more than the Prophet Daniel,” I laughed at him. Then I threw food at him.

Arrogance 101: Today’s Bible scholars know much less than the prophet Daniel; however, their arrogance has blinded them into believing that they are superior to Daniel. Only an arrogant fool would elevate himself over a true prophet. In my estimation, Dr. David Jeremiah is becoming an arrogant fool.
Dr. Jeremiah may have been called into the ministry; however, I don’t remember any books in the Bible named, “The Gospel According to David Jeremiah.” There is a book called “Daniel” in the Bible. Daniel had true dreams and visions. Dr. Jeremiah has never claimed any prophetic dreams or visions. Dr. Jeremiah spiritualizes most of the Torah, and he loathes walking-out the Torah (halakha). Dr. Jeremiah is very wealthy. Daniel, a slave, suffered because he walked-out the Torah blamelessly. Yet, Dr. Jeremiah feels that his opinion about the end times is more valid than a true prophet’s factual opinion. What a joke!

What does the Bible say about arrogant Gentiles?
But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. Romans 11:17-21 (ESV)

I know many modern-day prophets. Most of these prophets are quiet. When these modern-day prophets are noisy, they are in the spirit, defending the Torah, and it’s relevance to our present-day lives.
What does the Bible say about men that defend the Torah in the end times?

Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.’” Zechariah 8:23 (ESV)
What does Dr. Jeremiah have in common with a blog post about seventy years from 1943 to 2013?

Dr. Jeremiah was born in 1941, making him seventy-two years old. This proud Calvinist from Dallas Theological Seminary is the poster-child for passive aggressive anti-Semitism. In his opinion, the Torah and Christianity are antithetical. He defends Dispensationalism, a pre-tribulation Rapture, the Doctrine of Immanency, and more mumbo-jumbo. He shares one common bond: C. S. Scofield. Generations of Scofield-trained pastors, like him, could have stopped the Holocaust in 1943, but they did nothing. Their Messiah is a Jew, and they did nothing to save other Jews in 1943. Men that did nothing to save the Jews in 1943, have placed America into a seventy year bondage time frame related to having Jewish blood on our hands. Maybe not today; but, someday America will pay dearly for permitting Hitler to kill six million Jews.
Anti-Semitism begins with the wrong attitude. I’m seeing the same 1943 pastoral anti-Semitic attitude developing today. As pastors spew-forth false teachings about the Rapture, they quietly hope the God-killers, the Jews, finally get what they deserve. It’s unspoken, yet, they believe good guys (certain Christians) get raptured, while the bad guys (Jews) are hunted-down by the Antichrist. This can be logically inferred; however, this opinion is blatantly anti-Semitic.

What is the truth? The end times are about the Jews coming to salvation. Once the final Gentile is saved, the biblical narrative reverts to the Jews. The church isn’t raptured; rather, the church becomes less important comparatively. Then the church will resemble the 1943 church, quietly permitting the Jews to be exterminated again. As the Bible prophecies, God will be the Jew’s only salvation (Yeshua) in the end times.
I’m stating that history will repeat itself with respect to the Jews. What we remember of 1943 will return in 2013. There is a seventy year connection to America’s judgment. Please note the blood connection. There will be a seventy year connection to 1948 too. I'll blog about that later. My focus today is on why we Christians did nothing to save the Jews in 1943, and why this arrogance seems to be occurring again.
I’m stating that we’re seeing the same 1943 anti-Semitism begin again. Don’t be arrogant, like so many modern-day pastors. I’m imploring that you turn (teshuva), with me, from our anti-Semitic ways. Please join me in praying for the Jews, and for the peace of Jerusalem. Prayer is the best way to combat the pervasive anti-Semitic spirit invading the church.

A friend texted me today, "This is why God is putting the older Joshua and Calebs, like you and me, into positions of authority...When it is time, we will march OUT of Babylon and Egypt and the wilderness...to begin praying for those who will not die-off, but go into the promised land...and there defeat the spiritual giants forever!" 

Shalom!

Why Did President Obama Just Command, "Short The Bond Market!"

I submit that President Obama must do as he is told. My proof is the constant teleprompter forcing him to state exactly what his rulers request. He will be rewarded for his efforts. His efforts have hastened the demise of America. (Judas was well-compensated too.)

President Obama just ordered investors to short the bond market. Why? It’s time (world power-brokers deem it’s the time to crash world economies).
What is my proof? This is a story from “The Liberator." http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor/pages/243/676/bio.html

(I don’t endorse “The Liberator," or his other stories. I like his evidence, cited here.)

Ambrose: If Bernanke really shakes the tree, half the world may fall out
We no longer have a free market. The world’s financial asset prices have become a plaything of central banks and the sovereign wealth funds of a few emerging powers.

Julian Callow from Barclays says they are buying $1.8 trillion worth of AAA or safe-haven bonds each year from an available pool of $2 trillion. Nothing like this has been seen before in modern times, if ever.
The Fed, the ECB, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, et al, own $10 trillion in bonds. China, the petro-powers, et al, own another $10 trillion. Between them they have locked up $20 trillion, equal to roughly 25pc of global GDP. They are the market. That is why Fed taper talk has become so neuralgic, and why we all watch Chinese regulators for every clue on policy.

We will find out tomorrow whether Ben Bernanke is ready to blink after the market ructions of the last three weeks, sobered by the cascading upsets across the Brics and mini-Brics; or whether he will stay the course with Fed tapering sooner rather than later.

Obama’s recent comments suggest interest rates could soar this year
Did President Obama just give the signal to short the bond market?

In his comment that Ben Bernanke has served as Fed chairman longer than he has desired, the President has certainly provided a clue that Bernanke may be gone as Fed chairman sooner rather than later.
Indeed, it now appears that Bernanke may be a goner by September.

If this is the timeline we are looking at, interest rates may accelerate their current ascent.
Although interest rates have been on a long term down trend for years (In 1987, interest rates on 10-year notes were as high as 10%, and currently stand at 2.19%), there have been periods when interest rates bucked the downtrend.

Two notable periods that have seen upward moves in interest rates were when Fed chairmen departed.
As Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker left the Fed chairmanship in August 1987, the interest rate on the 10-year note climbed from 8.2% to 9.2% between June 1987 and September 1987. This was followed, of course by the October 1987 stock market crash…

Here Are The Warning Signs That Preceded The Last 3 Bond Market Crashes
[Shmita Year] 1994: The lead indicators were a pickup in US bank lending and small business hiring intentions, which led to a Q1 payroll shock and caused the Fed to quickly tighten policy.

[Shmita Year] 1987: The October crash was preceded by a dangerous combination of rising stocks, bond yields and gold prices, as well as global policy discord, as the Germans and Americans argued about monetary and exchange rate policy.
1998: Amidst the ongoing Asian Financial Crisis and Japanese bank bailouts, confusion on how much the Fiscal Investment and Loan Program of the government would buy government bonds caused yields to jump by more than 100 basis points in less than three months, which led to a 13% equity correction.

 

Lunacy: Can You Link Summer’s Eve To The Recent Economic Crash? I Can.

Last night, while I studied the upcoming “Supermoon (SuperLuna),” and the day’s economic crash, I was serenaded by a violent storm twisting my trees, and pounding hail into my car. Mid-storm, I had an epiphany. What I am noticing—since Hurricane Sandy last fall—is a trend; let’s call my trend, “Messages from God.” Please step back from your busy lives, and examine the trend with me.

The trend is the Seven Seals of Revelation opening slowly at first, then faster, like birth pangs.
 
Seal One: The Antichrist was born many years ago (1985?), and he lives west of Jerusalem.
 
Seal Two: 9-11 caused a never-ending war east of Jerusalem.

Seal Three: Opened during the summer of 2012, bringing draught to areas north and east of Jerusalem.
Seal Four: This enigmatic seal may be opening. It may open this fall. Expect 1.75 billion people to die from diverse causes. Expect the rioting to begin down south, like Brazil.
Brazil Protests Brazil June 20, 2013

If my Seal Theory is valid, soon we should experience signs in the cosmos, economic chaos, and rioting lunatics. We call certain people lunatics for a reason. Supposedly, the moon exacerbates their issues. I submit that this SuperLuna will cause an escalation of issues with the lunatic fringe.
My link: God sent us Hurricane Sandy to come against our false election festival. He warned us of our divided nation, likening it to I Kings 12. On Tax Day we saw a Boston Bombing. On the pagan Summer solstice, he sends warning of impending terrors. God is coming against our worldly lusts and festivals. Judgment, described in Isaiah, is fast behind.   

Terror and the pit and the snared are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth! He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken. The earth staggers like a drunken man; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies heavy upon it, and it falls, and will not rise again. Isaiah 24-17-20 (ESV)
The windows of heaven are coronal holes. The foundations are shifting faster based upon studies of the North Pole drifting precipitously. Terror and the pit and the snared are upon us. Lord, increase our faith!

Omen: floods, revolutions, wars, volcanoes, earthquakes, rattled markets- there’s a bad moon on the rise Posted on June 21, 2013

June 21, 2012 – SPACE - The largest full moon of 2013, a so-called “supermoon,” will light up the night sky this weekend, but there’s more to this lunar delight than meets the eye. On Sunday, June 23, at 7 a.m. EDT, the moon will arrive at perigee — the point in its orbit its orbit bringing it closest to Earth), a distance of 221,824 miles. Now the moon typically reaches perigee once each month (and on some occasions twice), with their respective distances to Earth varying by 3 percent. But Sunday’s lunar perigee will be the moon’s closest to Earth of 2013. And 32 minutes later, the moon will officially turn full. The close timing of the moon’s perigee and its full phase are what will bring about the biggest full moon of the year, a celestial event popularly defined by some as a “supermoon.” While the exact time of the full moon theoretically lasts just a moment, that moment is imperceptible to casual observers. The moon will appear full a couple of days before and after the actual full moo most will speak of seeing the nearly full moon as “full”: the shaded strip is so narrow, and changing in apparent width so slowly, that it is hard for the naked eye to tell in a casual glance whether it’s present or on which side it is. During Sunday’s supermoon, the moon will appear about 12.2 percent larger than it will look on Jan. 16, 2014, when it will be farthest from the Earth during its apogee.
Mass Carnage: Stocks, Bonds, Gold, Silver, Europe And Japan All Get Pummeled

By Michael Snyder, on June 20th, 2013
Can you smell that?  It is the smell of panic in the air.  As I have noted before, when financial markets catch up to economic reality they tend to do so very rapidly.  Normally we don't see virtually all asset classes get slammed at the same time, but the bucket of cold water that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke threw on global financial markets on Wednesday has set off an epic temper tantrum.  On Thursday, U.S. stocks, European stocks, Asian stocks, gold, silver and government bonds all over the planet all got absolutely shredded.  This is not normal market activity.  Unfortunately, there is nothing "normal" about our financial markets anymore.  Over the past several years they have been grossly twisted and distorted by the Federal Reserve and by the other major central banks around the globe.  Did the central bankers really believe that there wouldn't be a great price to pay for messing with the markets?  The behavior that we have been watching this week is the kind of behavior that one would expect at the beginning of a financial panic.  Dick Bove, the vice president of equity research at Rafferty Capital Markets, told CNBC that what we are witnessing right now "is not normal. It is not normal for all markets to move in the same direction at the same point in time due to the same development."  The overriding emotion in the financial world right now is fear.  And fear can cause investors to do some crazy things.  So will global financial markets continue to drop, or will things stabilize for now?  That is a very good question.  But even if there is a respite for a while, it will only be temporary.  More carnage is coming at some point.

My Epilog: Prepare for the worst in the world by preparing your heart. The literal Hebrew translation for "Saved" below is to escape danger by sneaking or running away. Sneak away to God. He loves you!

And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the LORD has said, and among the survivors shall be those whom the LORD calls. Joel 2:32 (ESV)

"Flash Crash:"Are You Prepared? Instead, Prepare Your Heart For Any Upcoming Tribulation.

My constant goal is to encourage preparation of your heart for faith in God during tribulations, not preparing for the eventual collapse of the dollar. However, a “Flash Crash” of the dollar could shake your faith, so I encourage preparing for worldly tribulations too.

I want you to be prepared, so NOTHING can shake your faith. When everyone else is rioting, I want you to be in your prayer closet covered by God’s chesed (Hebrew: His loving kindness).
While many read the standard end time’s hype, few are reading my edifying messages. Why is that?

So far, 4,000 people have read my blog. The big names preach pre-tribulation rapture, and they preach immanency, meaning NOTHING needs to occur before the rapture. They want you to be clueless, so they can charge you to interpret the signs for you. They foment hype, while I foment edification. Thus, when the prophesied frightening events appear, you will be like lemmings running over a cliff. Don’t be like a lemming. Please read my blog posts, pray about my information, and trust in God.
I believe that God has given people over to a spirit of prosperity and the rapture. While there are many that hold to my message, they are greatly outnumbered by prosperity/rapture people. My message of observing the signs around you in the Hebrew calendar sounds too Jewish for some. My message of the Seven Seals opening over the last few years like birth pangs sounds too gloomy for others. Pray about my words, God will confirm if it's the truth or a lie.
Now, it’s time for the news. This is from a Wall Street Brokerage company. Normally, these guys want to sell you stocks and bonds. Today, they’re talking about the truth. They’re not going to sell much today.

A Dollar Collapse is Coming
By FLOYD BROWN, Chief Political Analyst - Wall St Daily email 6.20.2013
http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/

…We also agreed that a dollar collapse is ahead. Yet, because of good economic decisions by leaders in the past and the dollar's status as the world's main reserve currency, America keeps putting off the day of reckoning.
Today, America is like the fourth generation heirs of a fabulous fortune. We may be making all the wrong moves, but our fortune is large, so it takes time for our spendthrift ways and bone-headed policies to erode the legacy bequeathed to us by our forbearers.

The Problem With a Fiat Currency
Our current standard of living is entirely reliant on the dollar's world reserve currency position. Outside of that, it's nothing more than a trashy paper currency. Fortunately, more than 60% of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in U.S. dollars. But when this special reserve status changes, the U.S. dollar could experience a devastating "flash crash."

That almost happened in the 1970s when the United States cancelled the gold standard. But luckily the Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, made a smart move. He negotiated a deal... In return for military protection, the Saudi and Gulf oil states agreed to conduct their oil dealings in the U.S. dollar.
As a result, the dollar more or less converted into a de facto oil-backed currency. Though not backed by gold, it was now secured by the strength of the U.S. economy and intimately attached to another cherished commodity, oil.

Still, it was a close call for our currency. And today, the dollar is a "fiat" currency. The Fed produces fresh dollars by either printing them or injecting electronic "reserves" into the banking system. The supply of dollars hinges upon the determinations of the board of governors of the Fed. The dollar itself has no intrinsic value.
The euro, Japanese yen and British pound are all fiat currencies, too. This is dangerous for the world's economy because every fiat currency in world history has eventually collapsed. They've all been destroyed by their controlling regimes.

Dangerous Times
If country after country experiences a serious currency crisis, I'm worried we could see a rolling series of collapses in the bond markets.

U.S. bond prices have started to fall recently, which is just another way of saying that U.S. interest rates are rising. If mortgage and credit card rates increase too much, consumers will send the weak U.S. economy over the cliff into a deep recession.
The Fed already has the monetary floodgates open, printing more dollars than is prudent. Eventually, this surge in dollar supply will destroy the value of the dollar. Costs for just about every product would then skyrocket. People whose life savings are in cash, bank CDs, or dollar-denominated bonds could be wiped out. Many U.S. companies will be bankrupted, along with their shareholders.

The only reason this isn't happening right now is because deflation winds are countering the forced inflation. The problem will come when the Fed attempts to unwind the easy money. You see, the easy money has been like heroin to the financial classes on Wall Street. There's no way to get unhooked without catastrophe.
Elsewhere, the only reason Japan and the European Union have been able to generate their meager rates of growth is the willingness of American consumers to purchase their Sony TVs and Mercedes Benz autos.

If the dollar plunges too far, Asian and European goods - priced in their domestic currencies - could become prohibitively overpriced for U.S. consumers. European and Asian leaders would likely respond with monetary inflation, too, as the Japanese are now doing. The Japanese are buying bonds and flooding world markets with yen. This could result in a series of "competitive devaluations," which may result in a death spiral for all the major fiat currencies.
Before we part, Mike Zullo and I agree... we live in dangerous times for America. And we all need a plan to prepare ourselves and our families [to trust in God regardless].

Epilog for the first day of summer:

Gold and U.S. Stocks Pretty Much Collapsed Thursday

Jun. 20, 2013 4:03pm Becket Adams
U.S. stocks started a downward slide yesterday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Fed may draw down its $85 billion-per-month bond-buying program sometime in mid-2014 if unemployment manages to work its way down to 6.5 percent.

And that downward slide picked up steam on Thursday, sending the three major U.S. stock indices way, way lower.
Shalom!

Is Capitalism Dead? Don't Ask Max Keiser That Question.

I read Max Keiser as often as I can stomach his negative--yet factual--reports. His most recent report from the G8 Summit is thought-provoking. He asks, "are Capitalism and Socialism dead?"

Many of you realize that I live according to the Torah, even though I'm a (Messianic) Christian. According to how I read the Bible, the only functional government system endorsed by God is Torah. Maybe that's why capitalism and socialism are failing.

Keiser: The Collapse of the Current Bankster Regime is Upon Us

Max Keiser
Infowars.com
June 17, 2013

We’re in a post-capitalist, post-socialism world. I have just come back from the G8 protests in Belfast and it occurred to me – at this point; we’re post both capitalism and socialism – and this point needs to be made clear, but we also see some vestiges of both systems in a new, emerging economy that has yet to be named.


Photo by Guillaume Paumier, via Flickr

I agree with the G8 protesters in Belfast that capitalism – as it’s been iterated in the West in the post WWII era has run its course. The main cause for its demise, as I see it, is that during the 1980’s; thanks to deregulation, futures and options speculation and leverage migrated over to the burgeoning field of ‘financial futures’ and the price discovery mechanism associated with supply and demand and the ‘invisible hand’ – over the ensuing few decades – completely broke down. Money itself lost any anchor to value as futures traders speculated with virtually no risk on contracts worth many billions that had been willed into existence by financial engineers not by dint of any underlying economic activity.

And there’s no going back now. You see, financial futures are trading on prices that are based – not on any underlying economic reality – but rather a series of assumptions based on academically-concatenated theories and theorems which in turn generate a new set of prices. The result is that capital flows into destabilizing ‘malinvestments’ all hidden by the outsized returns of intermediaries like hedge funds who make billions mining what has become essentially a broken system of monetizing fraud.

Since the rising unemployment and social unrest these financially engineered malinvestments produce is ignored, because hedge funds have been making lots of money, nobody is willing to step forward and suggest that making money at the expense of a sound market might be a bad thing. The fake prices are never questioned and the fraudulently garnered riches are always celebrated.

Prices for all commodities and securities have permanently lost their connection to a functioning economy. Once a pickle, never a cucumber. Financialized capitalism is now in its death throes.

What about socialism?

As that term is generally understood – it has also burnt out. Central planning, hierarchical governments, and doctrines guaranteeing ‘fairness’ simply don’t work; primarily because all centrally planned systems of markets and governments fail the ‘naturalness’ test. Nothing in nature works for long that is so rigid and unadaptable as man made experiments in central planning except for a few parasites and cancer.

Keiser: The Collapse of the Current Bankster Regime is Upon Us

Today we have hybrid models that contain bits from the previous schools that are racing ahead to fill the vacuum left by collapse of both capitalism and socialism.

Crowdfunding is an emergent idea. It owes a debt of gratitude to socialism. It’s part of ‘social networking,’ a phenomenon of leveraging the ‘the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’ idea. Keep in mind that Google’s multi-billion dollar valuation is driven by billions of individuals donating their time and creativity to the collective. So too for ‘open-source’ software and p2p file swapping. But there is also a necessary component of competition associated with free market capitalism in crowdfunding. A platform like Kickstarter allows for ideas to compete in a free market – where the funds flow where the market goes; not where a central planner wants funds to go.

Bitcoin is also a post capitalism/socialism hybrid. It’s growth is driven by a hard coded, centrally imagined algorithm while it’s adoption is possible via the free market activities of users who are rejecting centrally planned, bogus fiat currencies like Pounds, Dollars, and Yen and using Bitcoin instead.

The collapse of the current bankster regime is upon us. This means a whole new set of winners and losers. The point is that it’s not all grim. The future is being imagined and implemented as we speak.

When Will Cheap Money End? When God Tells China To Crash The Markets.

My ongoing contention is that China is buying stocks on Wall Street to force the price of gold to plummet. Their strategy is working.



When will the era of Cheap Money end? Investors are scared according to CNN.

U.S. stocks finished higher after a choppy day of trading Monday.

Investors are likely to remain on edge until they hear more from Fed chairman Ben Bernanke about the central bank's plans for its bond-buying program. Bernanke is set to speak at a news conference Wednesday after the Fed completes its two-day policy meeting.

In a PBS interview that aired late Monday, President Obama told Charlie Rose that Bernanke has "already stayed a lot longer than he wanted, or he was supposed to."

When Rose asked the president if he would reappoint Bernanke as Fed chairman when his term expires next year, Obama replied, "He has been an outstanding partner along with the White House in helping us recover much stronger than, for example, our European partners from what could have been an economic crisis of epic proportions."

Whenever Margin Debt Goes Over 2.25% Of GDP The Stock Market Always Crashes

By Michael, on June 17th, 2013

What do 1929, 2000 and 2007 all have in common? Those were all years in which we saw a dramatic spike in margin debt. In all three instances, investors became highly leveraged in order to "take advantage" of a soaring stock market. But of course we all know what happened each time. The spike in margin debt was rapidly followed by a horrifying stock market crash. Well guess what? It is happening again. In April (the last month we have a number for), margin debt rose to an all-time high of more than 384 billion dollars. The previous high was 381 billion dollars which occurred back in July 2007. Margin debt is about 29 percent higher than it was a year ago, and the S&P 500 has risen by more than 20 percent since last fall. The stock market just continues to rise even though the underlying economic fundamentals continue to get worse. So should we be alarmed? Is the stock market bubble going to burst at some point? Well, if history is any indication we are in big trouble. In the past, whenever margin debt has gone over 2.25% of GDP the stock market has crashed. That certainly does not mean that the market is going to crash this week, but it is a major red flag.

The funny thing is that the fact that investors are so highly leveraged is being seen as a positive thing by many in the financial world. Some believe that a high level of margin debt is a sign that "investor confidence" is high and that the rally will continue. The following is from a recent article in the Wall Street Journal...

The rising level of debt is seen as a measure of investor confidence, as investors are more willing to take out debt against investments when shares are rising and they have more value in their portfolios to borrow against. The latest rise has been fueled by low interest rates and a 15% year-to-date stock-market rally.

Others, however, consider the spike in margin debt to be a very ominous sign. Margin debt has now risen to about 2.4 percent of GDP, and as the New York Times recently pointed out, whenever we have gotten this high before a market crash has always followed...

The first time in recent decades that total margin debt exceeded 2.25 percent of G.D.P. came at the end of 1999, amid the technology stock bubble. Margin debt fell after that bubble burst, but began to rise again during the housing boom — when anecdotal evidence said some investors were using their investments to secure loans that went for down payments on homes. That boom in margin loans also ended badly.

Posted below is a chart of the performance of the S&P 500 over the last several decades. After looking at this chart, compare it to the margin debt charts that the New York Times recently published that you can find right here. There is a very strong correlation between these charts. You can find some more charts that directly compare the level of margin debt and the performance of the S&P 500 right here. Every time margin debt has soared to a dramatic new high in the past, a stock market crash and a recession have always followed. Will we escape a similar fate this time?

Dividing Israel Timeline: Time To Bring In The Big Guns, The Clintonistas!

My opinion: When politicians begin losing their popularity, they frequently turn to Hillary and Bill Clinton to lend their star appeal. I’ve never understood why this works? I regard Bill Clinton in the same league with Richard Nixon, and Hilary…has no conscience. They, and their cadre of flunkies, represent the Clintonistas. With a forty-seven person death count related to their former friends (FOB’s), they change opinions or get rid of their obstacles.

President Obama, beset with scandals, needs a Public Relations victory, or a war victory. Osama bin Laden is dead, so he needs a new Public Enemy—Israel. The plum: Obama needs to cement peace in the Middle East to secure a spot for his face on Mount Rushmore. Who you gonna’ call?

Enter: The Clintonistas. Recently, Obama hired Bill Clinton to repair his Middle East image. Immediately, Bill hit the campaign trail drumming-up support against their arch-enemy—Israel—while Hillary hit the campaign trail for 2016 (“Hit” was intended). She will campaign against Israel, painting them as the bad guys. They won’t let God, country, humanity, or integrity impede their paths. They are the Clintonistas.

What pot is Bill stirring?

Clinton urges 2-state solution for Israel

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2013/06/18/Clinton-urges-2-state-solution-for-Israel/UPI-12751371553339/

JERUSALEM, June 18 (UPI) -- The only choice for Israel to remain a Jewish and democratic nation is to work toward a two-state solution, former U.S. President Bill Clinton said. Clinton was in Israel to attend celebrations marking the 90th birthday of Israeli President Shimon Peres.

"You have to cobble together some kind of theory of a two-state solution, and the longer you let this go, just because of sheer demographics, the tougher it's going to get. I don't see any alternative to a Palestinian state," the former U.S. President said in a speech before the Peres Academic Center in Rehovot Monday night.

Clinton said he would donate the $500,000 payment received for his lecture to the Center to fund scholarships for students studying there, The Jerusalem Post reported.

What pot is Hillary stirring?


Hillary: Israelis Lack Empathy & Generosity
http://spectator.org/blog/2012/12/03/hillary-israelis-lack-empathy

By Aaron Goldstein on 12.3.12

A few hours after criticizing Israel for proposed new settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Israelis lacked generosity and empathy towards the Palestinians.

Speaking at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy on Friday (which is sponsored by the Brookings Institution), Hillary said: I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or their lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand in hand with suspicion. So, yes, there is more that the Israelis need to do to demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds.

My Epilog: The Clintons will enlist more friends to pressure Israel into creating a Palestinian State. When the Palestinian State is created, all Hell will break loose. It’s time to pray now, before the fireworks begin. Shalom!

Can You Link Coronal Holes With Earthquakes? Yes, Science And The Bible Agree.

I just watched a YouTube video linking coronal holes with earthquakes. Then I remembered that Revelation links the two also. Let’s read the Bible verses first (noting that all the Seals open before the Great Tribulation begins).

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Revelation 6:12-14 (ESV)
I posit that “the sky vanishing like a scroll that is being rolled up,” is a reference to coronal holes. God is showing us that earthquakes, coronal holes, and continental drift are linked. I’m telling you that those three issues are increasing in severity and frequency. I liken this to God removing our protective hedges as we collectively reject His love. There are many prophets stating that God is removing our protective hedges. I'm about to show you proof in your cosmos.

What happens if God removes our cosmic hedges? Imagine that coronal holes permit solar winds to punch through toward earth in the form of electromagnetic energy. This may cause violent storms on earth or more than that.
According to this expert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NwnloS9YoI

“Coronal holes happen all the time, often without earthquakes.” However, “Since 2007, all-but-one of these largest events match coronal holes and precursor shaking. All but one had a clear umbral opening. Often there is no warning.”
 
June 17, 2013 is a major coronal hole opening day.
 
If you're not praying to God daily for protection, maybe it's a good time to begin.
Shalom!

Addendum 6.25.13: Isaiah agrees:

Draw near, O nations, to hear, and give attention, O peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that fills it; the world, and all that comes from it. For the Lord is enraged against all the nations, and furious against all their host; he has devoted them to destruction, has given them over for slaughter. Their slain shall be cast out, and the stench of their corpses shall rise; the mountains shall flow with their blood. All the host of heaven shall rot away, and the skies roll up like a scroll. All their host shall fall, as leaves fall from the vine, like leaves falling from the fig tree. For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; behold, it descends for judgment upon Edom, upon the people I have devoted to destruction. Isaiah 34:1-5 (ESV)
Terror and the pit and the snared are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth! He who flees at the sound of the terror shall fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit shall be caught in the snare. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken. The earth staggers like a drunken man; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies heavy upon it, Isaiah 24:17-20 (ESV)

False Prophet News, June 2013: When Is The Day of His Announcement?

Today’s premise is that the False Prophet is due to appear soon. I’m sensing that God seems to be setting up the conditions for him to appear, in one form or another. First, we need biblical facts about this man. Secondly, we need a location for the False Prophet to emerge from, and then we need a human body for his spirit to inhabit. I’ll present evidence for these theories today.

What do we know about the False Prophet of the Bible? We know very little, for very little is written about him. What are the facts?
How will you identify False Prophets? False Prophets make crooked the straight paths of the Lord:

When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came upon a certain magician, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus. He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence, who summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. But Elymas the magician (for that is the meaning of his name) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and unable to see the sun for a time.” Immediately mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking people to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had occurred, for he was astonished at the teaching of the Lord. Acts 13:6-12 (ESV)
He will teach for a price, and prophesy for money:

Hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who detest justice and make crooked all that is straight, who build Zion with blood and Jerusalem with iniquity. Its heads give judgment for a bribe; its priests teach for a price; its prophets practice divination for money; Micah 3:9-11 (ESV)
This may describe the False Prophet:
Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people, and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. Revelation 13:11-18 (ESV)
His end is prophesied:

And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. Revelation 19:20 (ESV)

What is the False Prophet’s ultimate goal? To kill those of God’s promise:
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. (“Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”) And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. Revelation 16:12-16 (ESV)
My opinions:

The Satan loves to copy God’s plan of salvation, with his plan of “Restoring Civilization.” My unique opinion is that the False Prophet is a mystical Muslim spirit named Maitreya, at present. When he takes human form, he will still be Maitreya; however, his name will be obscured. Soon, Lord Maitreya, a mystical spirit invented by spiritualist guru Benjamin Crème, will announce himself in the “Day of Declaration.”  As the nations rage with talk of world war, he will visit most major nations talking about spiritual synergy of all religions. This will appease the deluded masses, and the demonic spirit world. Thus, he will help avert war. Then the Antichrist will sign a seven year peace treaty.
First, we need a location for the False Prophet to emerge from. I submit his base of operations will be the revived Ottoman Empire.

Suleiman The Magnificent Redux? Why Does the 1566 Ottoman Empire Resemble The 2013 Islamic Caliphate? (Fact: Hal Lindsey and others are wrong. Gog, the new Suleiman, will come from Turkey.)
Is God reviving the Ottoman Empire, under a new Suleiman the Magnificent—Gog from Magog? One map resembles the other map. However, will Gog from Turkey be Erdogan, a new Turkish leader, or Adnan Oktar, nee Harun Yahya? Time will tell.

Here is a Suleiman the Magnificent map from 1566:
 

Here is the 2013 map.

Satan’s twisted world of similarities: I believe that the False Prophet will announce himself before the Antichrist, according to biblical similarities. The False Prophet should be older than the Antichrist just as Ishmael was fourteen years older than Isaac, and John the Baptist was six months older than Yeshua. In my book, I guessed that the False Prophet would be twelve years older. He may be significantly older. If my theories are correct, expect the False Prophet to begin baptizing spiritually wacky people in the Jordanian (or the Babylonian) Wilderness in a year or two. Expect spiritual gadfly Benjamin Crème—in the spirit of Simeon, and some crazy prophetess—in the spirit of Anna, to rework the baptism or the commissioning of the Antichrist. Mr. Crème has spent the last forty years spiritually channeling for this event. Before he dies, he’ll see this satanic plan unveil.

When I study the similarities between Suleiman the Magnificent and Erdogan or Adnan Oktar, nee Harun Yahya, I’m amazed. They have the same anti-Israel spirit.
Is my Gog, a new Turkish leader, besieged Erdogan or the creepy Adnan Oktar? I’m voting for Adnan Oktar (left) because he resembles mystical Lord Maitraya (right). Take a peek…the pictures resemble each other.
    
This man acknowledges Jesus as the Messiah (below). Here is a messianic quote from Adnan Oktar under the guise of Harun Yahya:
http://harunyahya.com/en/Adnan-Oktars-Comments-on-Various-Subjects/152651/The-End-Times

A9 TV,  September 6th, 2012
We are in one part of the End Times. The End Times are proceeding apace. Every day, Almighty Allah attracts our attention to Himself, to His Mahdi, to Jesus the Messiah and to Islamic Unity. Every day, Almighty Allah says, “Return to Me. I exist. I am One. All power is in My hand. I am the Creator of all things.” Almighty Allah says, “I will cause Islam to reign across the world. You will see and know this.” There is also a verse where He says, “We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves until it is clear to them that it is the truth.” We will see and know both Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus (pbuh). We will all see Islamic Unity together.

I’m asking you to beware of the emergence of the False Prophet. He could arrive soon, and he may resemble one of the men pictured above.

Kippur: Are You Covered Or Uncovered?

We all need to be covered by the blood of Yeshua. However, many of us don’t realize how imperative His blood is for our daily protection and salvation. Soon, His covering will be more than imperative.

I hope that you noticed the word-play in my title today. Water [baptism/mikvah] is a Kippur, Oil is a Kippur, and light (Or) is a Kippur. There are more ways that God covers us through our daily tribulations. In lieu of coming tribulations, let’s examine God’s Kippurim (plural of covering).

In my estimation, my father was the best pastor ever. However, he missed the mark in a few important theological interpretations. What he taught me in Confirmation and Sunday school was that Jesus’ Atonement was “At-One-Ment” with God. By sanctification in the Holy Spirit we can be one with God. Can we be one with God, and is that what God means by Kippur?
Sadly, everybody fails at being one with God, for He is holy, and we are sinful. Then, if we are sinful, how can we have a relationship with God? We need to be covered by the blood of Yeshua. Yeshua’s covering may come in different shapes and sizes, but, it is always Yeshua’s covering, according to the Bible.

If I list the examples found in the Bible, you’ll see a pattern, from the beginning.
The Lamb: And it was given unto him [the Beast/Antichrist] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. Revelation 13:8-10 (KJV)

God is preparing us for this eventual tribulation by noting our Messianic covering, slain from the beginning.

Adam and Eve: And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. Genesis 3:21
To cover their sins and nakedness, God covered them with skins.

Cain: Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, you have driven me today away from the ground, and from your face I shall be hidden. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” Then the Lord said to him, “Not so! If anyone kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” And the Lord put a mark on Cain, lest any who found him should attack him. Then Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden. Genesis 4:13-16 (ESV)
God covered murderous Cain with a mark.

Noah: And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch. Genesis 6:13-14 (ESV)
Both the ark and the pitch (oil) are coverings.

Moses: The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months. When she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket made of bulrushes and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. Exodus 2:2-3 (ESV)
Both the ark and the pitch (oil) are coverings.

The list goes on about God covering us, and not rapturing us before a crisis. There was no emergency with Enoch or Elijah that caused God to rapture them.
I defer to the Expert: What does David Wilkerson say about this topic?  

EMERGENCY PLANS FOR CRISIS!  Wednesday, June 12, 2013
http://davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com/2013/06/emergency-plans-for-crisis.html

No matter how unsettled the world becomes, God's people can relax and keep their joy flowing, because our Lord has promised special protection when it is most needed.
Didn't God have an emergency plan for the children of Israel during the worldwide famine? He sent Joseph ahead to Egypt and promoted him to prime minister. He filled the warehouses with enough grain to last out the raging famine and then transported his people within walking distance of those storehouses and fed them to the full.

Didn't God have emergency plans for Elijah? While his nation reeled under the impact of an economic collapse and food was scare because of severe famine—and a wicked king had a ransom on his head—God put His emergency plan for Elijah into effect. He hid him by a quiet brook and fed him by having a bird deliver his food. The survival plan also included a mysterious barrel of grain that never ran out.
What about Noah? What a detailed survival plan God had for him and his family—an ark that floated him and his family safely above all the death and destruction of a worldwide flood!

And Lot? God actually sent angels to personally pull him and his children out of the doomed city of Sodom. God's hands were tied until Lot was safely out of the suburbs. It was more than a loss of his job, more than a collapse of the economy, more than a downfall of the government. It was total annihilation of his society—but Lot was delivered safely.
Paul proved God's emergency contingencies over and again. This apostle was shipwrecked, chased by thieves, imprisoned, accused of treason, plotted against by assassins and yet, in every crisis, God had a contingency plan for deliverance.

We, too, have an emergency plan for survival—designed specifically for each believer.
Let there be no question about it. God will see us through every crisis. No crisis Satan can throw against the children of God can bring them down. Not depression, not famine, not a job loss, not sickness or suffering of any kind. God will deliver His children and there is not one single reason to fear. “Take therefore no thought [do not be anxious] for the morrow.” (Matthew 6:34).
