Is PCG right on Yemen and Iran?

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

COGwriter

The April 2015 edition of the Philadelphia Trumpet has the following in an article by PCG’s Gerald Flurry:

Yemen is one of the most strategically important countries in the world. … In January, the Houthis, a rebel group sponsored and directed by Iran, overthrew the pro-American Yemeni government. …

The Houthi takeover in Yemen proves that Iran is implementing a bold strategy to control the vital sea lane from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. …

In order to reach the Mediterranean Sea from the Indian Ocean, a lot of seafaring trade—including 3.8 million barrels of oil per day—passes through the Bab el-Mandeb Strait… The northeast edge of the strait is in Yemeni territory. …

Nearly 10 percent of global seaborne oil supplies pass through the gates of the Red Sea. …

Now that Iran controls Yemen, it can virtually close or open this spigot on Middle East oil bound for Europe.

Yemen has had problems this year (see USA suspends anti-terrorism activities in Yemen: danger lurks in Yemen).

While the Bible in Daniel 11 does discuss nations in the Middle East and North Africa, it does not specifically mention the Red Sea corridor nor the Red Sea itself.  Now in Ezekiel 30:2-8 some additional specifics about the peoples is provided, including mentioning the involvement of “all the mingled people” (Ezekiel 30:5).  This would seem to include Yemen.

While it is true that Yemen is located on part of the Red Sea corridor, so are other nations like Eritrea and Djibouti.

Getting back to Gerald Flurry’s article, it also states:

Iran’s Red Sea Strategy

The Houthis’ takeover of Yemen was not just a grassroots revolution. It was a part of a deliberate and calculated Iranian strategy to conquer the Red Sea. This strategy is revealed in a powerful prophecy in the biblical book of Daniel.

As astounding as it may sound, the Prophet Daniel foretold what just happened in Yemen! He even mentions names of individual nations along the Red Sea corridor that will be aligned with Iran.

Notice it: “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over” (Daniel 11:40). This is an end-time prophecy. It concerns the time we are living in right now, and it directly concerns these Middle Eastern nations.

For almost 25 years we have identified the king of the south as a radical Islamist power led by Iran, and the king of the north as a German-led European power. This prophecy reveals that the Iranian-led power will push at Europe. It may be that this push could take place in the very area of Yemen or the Gulf of Aden.

Notice what Michael Segall wrote for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs: “If the Shia rebels gain control of the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, Iran can attain a foothold in this sensitive region, giving access to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, a cause of concern not only for its sworn rivals Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Gulf states, but also for Israel and European countries along the Mediterranean. Arab commentators in the Gulf have warned in recent years about this Iranian push” (Nov. 3, 2014). …

The following verses in Daniel reveal other nations that will align with Iran, the king of the south. Those mentioned include Egypt, Ethiopia and Libya (verses 42-43). These nations are all situated next to the Mediterranean Sea or the Red Sea. …

Daniel 11:40 shows that as these events play out with Iran, the United States won’t be a factor! It is Europe that Iran is going to push against. And it is Europe that will respond. …

Daniel 11:40 says Europe will come at Iran like a whirlwind.  https://www.thetrumpet.com/article/12459.24.173.0/middle-east/iran-gets-a-stranglehold-on-the-middle-east

As far as Iran goes, it has threatened to stop oil shipments in the past based on its own border on the Persian Gulf.  While it possibly could use Yemen as a proxy, the military reality is that it could not keep this particular corridor closed as other powers would not allow it.  Of course as PCG is indicating, the Europeans would not stand for it.

However, Daniel 11:40 never mentions Iran.  Daniel 11:40 DOES NOT SAY THAT ‘EUROPE WILL COME AT IRAN LIKE A WHIRLWIND.’ Daniel 11:40 says that the King of the North will come against the King of the South that way.  Iran is NOT specifically mentioned in Daniel 11:40-43.

Where did Gerald Flurry get his false idea about Iran being the final King of the South?

Well, since Iran is mainly east of Jerusalem, it was not from geography or the Bible.   Iran might be a king of the East, but it is not the King of the South.

Since the late Herbert W. Armstrong believed that king would be Egypt and/or an Arabic Muslim leader, as that is what was published while he was alive by the church he was the physical leader of, Gerald Flurry did not get this from Herbert W. Armstrong.

So, in my view, he got it from his own imagination.

Gerald Flurry is wrong about this and in my view he is clearly a false prophet.

While Iran wants to play a massive international role, because it is NOT the biblical King of the South, in my view it is likely to get neutralized, perhaps through a regional war and/or civil unrest in its own country.  The King of the South will rise up as the BIBLE teaches (Daniel 11:40-43), Yemen will apparently be part of that confederation, but it will not be led by Iran.

7. The Laodicean Church Era has been predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. The Laodiceans are non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG or its offshoots.  They do not properly understand the work or biblical prophecies and will face the Great Tribulation if they do not repent.

BibleNewsProphecy: Blood Moon Expected April 4th

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

COGwriter

The third of the four ‘blood moons’ expected in 2014 and 2015 should fall on April 4, 2015. Some consider this to be of significant prophetic importance and attempt to tie certain scriptures to it.

The Continuing Church of God is pleased to report that thousands have watched our video about blood moons on our YouTube channel called Bible New Prophecy to learn the truth about this. You may wish to watch this as well.

What are blood moons? Are four blood red moons going to happen as the result of lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015? Are they really to occur on biblical holy days or Jewish holidays? Does NASA teach about blood moons? Can Jesus return in 2015? Is ‘the rapture’ going to happen in 2015? What does the Bible teach about blood moons? Can the Day of the Lord begin in 2015? What about the Great Tribulation?

In October 2013, the Protestant Pastor John Hagee released a book with his understanding of some prophetic events. That was a factor in producing this video (although I had posted about blood moons and prophecy as far back as 2008). John Hagee attempted to tie some events in with the biblical Holy Days, but got the dates off a bit, as well as misapplied some scriptures.

Some are focused on the coming blood moons as they believe that they show something will come to pass, because of Jewish tradition and some historical events (essentially, the claim is that there have been three sets of tetrad blood moons on in the Spring & Fall Holy Day seasons in the past 500 years, and either those years or the year thereafter, something significant has affected the Jewish people).

Here is something from the Talmud of Jewish traditions:

Succah 29a Our Rabbis taught, When the sun is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for the whole world. This may be illustrated by a parable. To what can this be compared? To a human being who made a banquet for his servants and put up for them a lamp. When he became wroth with them he said to his servant, ‘Take away the lamp from them, and let them sit in the dark’. It was taught: R. Meir said, Whenever the luminaries are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished. Our Rabbis taught, When the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by the moon and idolaters by the sun. If it is in eclipse in the east, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the east; if in the west, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the west; if in the midst of heaven it is bad omen for the whole world. If its face is red as blood, [it is a sign that] the sword is coming to the world; if it is like sack-cloth, the arrows of famine are coming to the world; if it resembles both, the sword and the arrows of famine are coming to the world. If the eclipse is at sunset calamity will tarry in its coming; if at dawn, it hastens on its way: but some say the order is to be reversed. And there is no nation which is smitten that its gods are not smitten together with it, as it is said, And against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments. But when Israel fulfill the will of the Omnipresent, they need have no fear of all these [omens] as it is said, Thus saith the HaShem,’ Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the nations are dismayed at them, the idolaters will be dismayed, but Israel will not be dismayed. Our Rabbis taught, On account of four things is the sun in eclipse: On account of an Ab Beth din who died and was not mourned fittingly; on account of a betrothed maiden who cried out aloud in the city and there was none to save her; on account of sodomy, and on account of two brothers whose blood was shed at the same time. And on account of four things are the luminaries in eclipse: On account of those who perpetrate forgeries, on account of those who give false witness; on account of those who rear small cattle in the land of Israel; and on account of those who cut down good trees.

Although this is a Jewish tradition, it needs to be understood that it is simply a tradition. Remember that Jesus sometimes chastised Jews who believed their traditions above what the Bible teaches:

9 He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. (Mark 7:9)

Thus, Christians should be careful not to believe Jewish traditions or other teachings if they are in conflict with the Bible. There were not world wars or massive famines every time there were certain eclipses, blood moon or not.

Some have claimed that because there was a blood moon in 1967 (and some other years) this shows that various events affecting the nation of Israel happen when there is a blood moon.

Now I am not disputing that events affecting the nation of Israel happened in 1967, as, for example, the 6 Day War is was an historical events. Yet, this does not mean that Jesus will return in 2015 or that the Day of the Lord will begin in this year either.

On the other hand, I do believe it is possible, if not likely, that we will see significant events that will affect the nation of Israel in  2015 or 2016. We may see some of the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 then. But the Bible itself DOES NOT tie the agreement in Daniel 9:27 in with blood moons.

Egypt’s President Sisi again calls for ‘King of the South’ military

Saturday, March 28th, 2015


Abdel Fattah el-Sisi (Kremlin.ru)

COGwriter

At a summit meeting of leaders of Arabic nations, Egypt’s President Sisi is calling for a military force consistent with biblical prophecy:

March 28, 2015

A joint military force should be created to defend Arab nations, Egypt’s president said Saturday.

President Abdel Fattah Sisi made his comments at a summit of Arab leaders in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, where the escalating conflict in Yemen was top of the agenda.

He said the Arab world was at a critical crossroads and facing unprecedented challenges.

“The challenges are grave,” he told the Arab leaders. “It is a huge responsibility, heavy and burdensome.”

His comments came as Saudi-led airstrikes were launched against Shiite rebels in Yemen, known as Houthis.

The coalition supporting the strikes says the takeover of Yemen is supported by Iran, which wants to exert its influence in the region.

Sisi said military action in Yemen was “inevitable.”

“We reject any intervention in our own affairs,” he said, but did not directly mention Iran.  http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-egypt-president-backs-joint-arab-military-force-20150328-story.html

March 28, 2015

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged Arab leaders at a summit on Saturday to back the creation of a joint military force, saying the region faced “unprecedented” threats.

“There is an unprecedented threat to Arab identity… a threat that if it spreads will break this (Arab) nation,” Sisi told the summit in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh which is expected to approve the proposed joint force. https://en-maktoob.news.yahoo.com/russia-join-china-led-development-bank-100253508–sector.html

March 28, 2015

Egypt’s president has renewed calls for the creation of a joint Arab military force as it and other countries launch airstrikes against Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi made the comment Saturday while addressing a summit of Arab leaders in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Saying that the crises in the Middle East and North Africa region have reached an unprecedented danger, Sisi said he “backs calls for a unified Arab force” to confront regional security threats.

Sisi added that there is an urgent need to filter the religious rhetoric of extremism,  emphasizing the need to support the elected, legitimate Libyan government.

The president also reiterated that Egypt’s participation in the Saudi-led coalition was ‘imperative,’ after meddling there by a foreign power – a thinly veiled reference to Iran, adding that it aims to preserve Yemen’s unity. http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2015/03/28/Yemeni-president-arrived-in-Egypt-for-Arab-League-summit-.html

The Ministerial Council of the Arab League announced backing the military actions of the coalition led by the Gulf Cooperation Council and a number of Arab and international countries under Article 51 of the UN charter to protect the sovereignty and unity of Yemen.’

The council expressed hope that such military measures would bring back security and stability to Yemen and would stand up against Houthi forces. …

The AL secretary-general, meanwhile, said the draft resolution is based on the 1950 Treaty of Joint Defense and Economic Cooperation of the Arab League and Article 51 of the UN charter.

He described the draft resolution as “historic.”

He also stressed the importance of the military “Operation Decisive Storm” spearheaded by Saudi Arabia against Houthis in Yemen to support the legitimacy of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.  http://allafrica.com/stories/201503280100.html

So, Egypt and other Arab leaders want a pan-Arabic military force for ‘defense.’ President Sisi also called for something like this last month (see Egypt calls for ‘King of the South’ military).  Because of terrorist threats, this is being encouraged by the West.

Additionally, because many of the Arab states do not care for Iran and the deal that the USA has been negotiating with Iran, this is another reason that they want to get together.  Notice the following:

March 27, 2015

WASHINGTON – With the Obama administration holding out for a nuclear deal with Iran, Saudi-led air strikes by 10 coalition members against Iranian-backed al-Houthi targets in neighboring Yemen have won broad U.S. congressional backing as Arab leaders move closer to creating a joint Arab military force.

The Saudis want to intervene more aggressively against ISIS jihadist fighters and the spread of Iranian influence in the region.

Creation of a joint force – which has been discussed in recent years but never implemented – comes as the Saudis and close ally Egypt see the United States moving toward a nuclear deal with Iran.

The imminent deal has caused Riyadh to conclude it can no longer rely on U.S. security guarantees and must take the security initiative. …

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in a joint statement said Saudi Arabia “and our Arab partners deserve our support as they seek to restore order in Yemen, which has collapsed into civil war.”

“We understand why or Saudi and other Arab partners felt compelled to take action,” they said. “The prospect of radical groups like al-Qaida, as well as Iranian-backed militants, finding safe haven on the border of Saudi Arabia was more than our Arab partners could withstand.”

Over the weekend, foreign ministers assembled in Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh at an Arab League conference to come up with a plan for such a joint force.

From this joint force, the airstrikes now occurring in Yemen against the Iranian-backed Houthis could be followed for the first time by ground troops assembled from some 10 Sunni countries, including Gulf Arab nations. The intention of the ground forces will be to compel the Houthis to negotiate a resolution of the Yemeni crisis.

The joint force would be headquartered either in Cairo, Egypt, or the Saudi capital o Riyadh and would be comprised on an initial 40,000 elite troops. The force would be backed up by jet fighters, warships and light armor. http://www.wnd.com/2015/03/u-s-iran-nuke-deal-prompts-arabs-to-create-own-force/#6X0CuqEWvZ64gXsB.99

So an Arabic army is being prompted by Arabic concerns and USA encouragement.  Having a plan with 40,000 troops is only the beginning.  Even if it has problems, a pan-Arabic coalition, with temporary involvement from Turkey and some others, is prophesied.

The Bible specific tells of a military force that will form which will involve Egypt, nations in North Africa and the Middle East (including Turkey), and a leader referred to as the King of the South:

2 “Son of man, prophesy and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says:

“‘Wail and say, “Alas for that day!” 3 For the day is near, the day of the LORD is near- a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations. 4 A sword will come against Egypt, and anguish will come upon Cush. When the slain fall in Egypt, her wealth will be carried away and her foundations torn down.

5 Cush and Put, Lydia and all Arabia, Libya and the people of the covenant land will fall by the sword along with Egypt.

6 “‘This is what the LORD says:

“‘The allies of Egypt will fall and her proud strength will fail. From Migdol to Aswan they will fall by the sword within her, declares the Sovereign LORD. 7 “‘They will be desolate among desolate lands, and their cities will lie among ruined cities. 8 Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I set fire to Egypt and all her helpers are crushed.

9 “‘On that day messengers will go out from me in ships to frighten Cush out of her complacency. Anguish will take hold of them on the day of Egypt’s doom, for it is sure to come (Ezekiel 30:2-9, NIV).

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. 41He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. 42 He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushitese in submission. (Daniel 11:40-43, NIV)

(Note: I intentionally cited the NIV as it does not make the translation mistake of putting the word “Ethiopians” in as the references in the original Hebrew means Cushites, and this does NOT have to include the nation currently referred to as Ethiopia.)

Part of why I bold some of the scriptures is to point out that the confederation of primarily Arabic states that Ezekiel 30:2-9 and Daniel 11:40-43 refer to is for the end times.

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is again calling for something that could develop into the type of military that will be involved in those end time prophecies. Leaders of several other Arab nations are also supporting this idea.

I would also add here that Egypt is planning on building a new capital with money from other Arab nations, and that capital could end up being important to the coming King of the South (see also Is the King of the South’s capital being built in Egypt?).  The location of the current Arabic summit is in the vicinity of where this capital may be built.

Although Muslims are supposed to believe the Bible, they tend to believe that it has been corrupted by Jews and the ‘crusaders’ (Greco-Romans who claim Christianity)–thus they will generally not rely on it nor trust it.  If leaders of Muslim nations truly would read and believe the Bible, they would see that the type of military force they want to put together will ultimately change and end in disaster.

Ezekiel 30 and Daniel 11 clearly show that Egypt and many who align with it will not fare well (Daniel 11, however, also shows that the Turks and some of the Arabs will be spared that destruction in verse 41, as some of the allies of the final King of the South will betray him per Daniel 11:25-26).

Bible prophecy has many warnings that Muslim, Western, Asian, and other leaders are ignoring.

While the end is not yet (cf. Matthew 24:6), we are getting closer and world events show that leaders are calling for steps consistent with end time Bible prophecies.

US reveals Israeli nuclear weapons information; INN asks, ‘Obama’s revenge’?

Thursday, March 26th, 2015


COGwriter

A reader sent me links to the following two items today:

March 25, 2015

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program

Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel’s top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came astensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations” gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/193175#.VRSK-T-LWNA

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The United States is considering letting Tehran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites, officials have told The Associated Press.

The trade-off would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at its Fordo facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and the site would be subject to international inspections, according to Western officials familiar with details of negotiations now underway. In return, Iran would be required to scale back the number of centrifuges it runs at its Natanz facility and accept other restrictions on nuclear-related work. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/I/IRAN_NUCLEAR_TALKS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2015-03-26-12-09-16

It appears that the Obama Administration is keen on trying to harm Israel, while allowing Iran to go further than is safe and prudent.

Why put the two stories together above?

Well, it is possible that God will allow Iran to strike the nation of Israel and Iran may partially cite the USA report as a reason to do so.  Notice the following prophecy:

1 The burden against the Valley of Vision.

What ails you now, that you have all gone up to the housetops, 2 You who are full of noise, A tumultuous city, a joyous city? Your slain men are not slain with the sword, Nor dead in battle. 3 All your rulers have fled together; They are captured by the archers. All who are found in you are bound together; They have fled from afar. 4 Therefore I said, “Look away from me, I will weep bitterly; Do not labor to comfort me Because of the plundering of the daughter of my people.”

5 For it is a day of trouble and treading down and perplexity By the Lord God of hosts In the Valley of Vision — Breaking down the walls And of crying to the mountain. 6 Elam bore the quiver With chariots of men and horsemen, And Kir uncovered the shield. 7 It shall come to pass that your choicest valleys Shall be full of chariots,And the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

8 He removed the protection of Judah. You looked in that day to the armor of the House of the Forest; 9 You also saw the damage to the city of David, That it was great; And you gathered together the waters of the lower pool. 10 You numbered the houses of Jerusalem, And the houses you broke down To fortify the wall. 11 You also made a reservoir between the two walls For the water of the old pool. But you did not look to its Maker, Nor did you have respect for Him who fashioned it long ago.

12 And in that day the Lord God of hosts Called for weeping and for mourning,For baldness and for girding with sackcloth. 13 But instead, joy and gladness, Slaying oxen and killing sheep, Eating meat and drinking wine: “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”

14 Then it was revealed in my hearing by the Lord of hosts,”Surely for this iniquity there will be no atonement for you, Even to your death,” says the Lord God of hosts.  (Isaiah 22:1-14 NKJV)

Elam seems to be a reference to at least some in Iran.  Kir is of interest as it has several possibilities.  One is that the Bible tells that after Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria took over Damascus, he moved Syrians to Kir.  While this does not mean that Kir must (or must only) be a reference to Syria, the fact that Syria is an ally of Iran is interesting.  Some believe Kir is an area in the south of Iran, while others suggest closer to the Black Sea.

Anyway, the point I wish to make is that the above  scripture shows, presuming that it has a future application, that a time is coming when God will take away the protection of Judah and the City of David (Jerusalem, cf. 2 Kings 9:28).  Iran might be involved or even lead one aspect of this.

Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu has been in the forefront of warning about Iran’s nuclear intentions, while the Obama Administration has engaged in negotiations which have helped Iran economically, and ultimately, apparently militarily if Iran gets its way.

Armed conflict may happen between Israel and Iran, and possibly could involve the USA. The Bible tells of a time when Syria’s capital Damascus will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1) and Israel may be involved with that as Syria is Iran’s closest ally.

Several items of possibly related interest may include:

Britain sends more military to Falklands as Russia blasts UK inconsistency

Thursday, March 26th, 2015


Argentina now features the Falkland Islands on its 50 Peso notes

COGwriter

A reader tipped me off about the following:

March 25, 2015

The U.K. has sent extra military support to one of its overseas colonies at the bottom of the world, the Falkland Islands, amid concerns that it is facing increased risk of attack from Argentina, backed by Russia.

Two troop-carrying Chinook helicopters and a new surface-to-air missile system have been sent by the U.K. to the remote islands in the South Atlantic, known as Las Malvinas in Argentina. …

Left-leaning President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, struggling with a debt crisis at home, has also recently brought the islands back to attention. She said late last year: “The Malvinas has always belonged to Argentina, the same way that Crimea also belonged to the Soviet Union until it was given to Ukraine.” http://www.cnbc.com/id/102534017#.

March 25, 2015
Michael Fallon, the defence secretary, said the islands will be ready to repel “any potential threat” after reports the Kremlin is preparing to lease 12 Su-24 long range bombers to Buenos Aires in exchange for beef and wheat.

It came as Russia questioned the legitimacy of Britain’s claim to the islands.

Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador in London, compared the referendum held in 2013 that found 99.8% of the Falkland Islanders wanted to remain a British territory to that held in Crimea last year.

The snap Crimean poll, used to justify Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula, has been widely seen as a sham. …

The Russian riposte follows weeks of rhetoric from pro-Kremlin newspapers and leading Russian MPs denouncing Britain’s “colonial occupation” of the islands, dubbed the “Crimea of the Atlantic.”

Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Duma’s committee of international affairs, tweeted, “Information for London: Crimea has immeasurably more reason to be a part of Russia than the Falkland Islands to be part of the UK.”

Cristina de Kirchner, the Argentine president, has also backed Mr. Putin.

“The Malvinas has always belonged to Argentina, the same way that Crimea also belonged to the Soviet Union until it was given to Ukraine,” she said last year.

The Kremlin’s reported deal with her government will ease the pressure on Russia’s food supply as a result of western sanctions, and comes alongside arms deals with Venezuela, Bolivia and Peru.  http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/03/25/fearing-russia-may-be-arming-argentina-britain-beefs-up-falkland-islands-defences/

So, Argentina claims that Russia’s claims on Crimea are valid and hence so is its claim on the Falklands.  Russia claims that its claims to Crimea are greater than Britain’s claims to the Falkland Islands.

I would add that Pope Francis is from Argentina, plus has positive relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. My suspicion is that Pope Francis would prefer Argentina gain the Falklands and may be working behind the scenes for now on this.

The UK went to war to repel Argentina after it invaded the Falklands in 1982.  UK Prime Minister David Cameron has repeatedly promised to defend the Falklands and respect the votes of the people there to be part of the UK.

The Falkland Islands are located in the South Atlantic Ocean on a projection of the Patagonian Shelf about 310 miles (500 kilometers) east of the Patagonian/Argentinian coastline. They consist of two main islands, East Falkland and West Falkland, along with about 700 smaller islands. Stanley, which is on East Falkland, is the capital and largest city. Less than 3,000 people live on them.

Although the voting people of the Falklands have made their preferences known, I believe that the Bible suggests that the UK will end up losing the Falklands.  Places like the Falklands were promised to the descendants of Isaac (Genesis 24:60), sometimes called Isaac’s sons or Saxons in history (see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).  However, God also warned about them also being “plucked from” the land they were given for disobedience (Deuteronomy 28:58-63; see also Will the Anglo-Saxon Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves?).

Although biblical prophecy does not specify a major conflict between Russia and the British, there is always the possibility of conflicts as Jesus warned that there would be:

6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8)

(More on Russia’ prophesied role is in the article Russia and Ukraine: Their Origins and Prophesied Future.)

The UK has has controlled the Falkland Islands since the 1830′s and it is obvious that most who live there want to remain under British rule. Yet, despite British hopes, the UK will ultimately lose control of the Falkland Islands, which the Argentinians refer to as the Malvinas.  Last month, Argentina unveiled its new 50 peso note which has not only shows the Falkland, but has the translated statement, “Malvinas Islands, a sovereign love” (see also Argentina to release 50 peso note declaring ‘sovereign love’ for the Falklands).

For many years, the major sea gates of the world were possessed/controlled by the United States (Panama Canal and certain locations in the Pacific ocean) and the British Empire (Straits of Malacca, Singapore, Suez Canal, Bab el Mandeb, Strait of Hormuz, Simon’s Town/Cape of Good Hope, etc.). And while that is no longer the case for many of them, they seem to have been prophesied to be taken away for disobedience as well (cf. Deuteronomy 28)—and certainly these nations have disobeyed the God of Abraham, as well as actually have lost many of those gates. Thus, it seems logical to conclude that the remaining “sea gates” that the UK has such as Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands will be separated from UK control. Spain directly, or perhaps, through the EU (or some other European confederation) indirectly, will force out British control over Gibraltar.

The fact of the losses so far of many of the Anglo-Saxon sea gates should show us that various curses have began to hit the Anglo-nations. More will as well until the Anglo nations (including the USA) will be no more.

As far as South America itself goes, it is my belief that based upon biblical prophecy that most of South America will ultimately align itself with the rising European power (which will ultimately not be nice to the British). And, despite its current agreements with Russia (which will also, for a time, support the coming European power to a degree) it would strongly appear that Argentina will be one of the nations that will support the final European power.

Spain wants Gibraltar and Argentina wants the Falklands (also known as the Malvinas). UK Prime Minister David Cameron says the UK will defend the Falklands Gibraltar.

2nd anniversary of the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’

Thursday, March 26th, 2015


Non-GMO and GMO-Breeding for Plants

COGwriter

Today marks the two-year anniversary of H.R. 933, which critics have called the ‘Monsanto Protection Act.’ Here is some information reported about it near that time:

Critics slam Obama for “protecting” Monsanto

There’s no love lost between Washington and the American public, it seems, five days after Congress for the first time in years managed to handle a budget-related issue without reaching the brink of crisis.

Protesters have descended on Pennsylvania Avenue outside the White House this week, enraged at a potentially health-hazardous provision they allege lawmakers inserted surreptitiously into a continuing resolution (CR) that will fund the government through the remainder of the fiscal year. The bill sailed through the Capitol on Friday; President Obama signed it into law on Tuesday.

Opponents have termed the language in question the “Monsanto Protection Act,” a nod to the major agricultural biotech corporation and other like firms geared at producing genetically modified organisms (GMO) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds and crops. The provision protects genetically modified seeds from litigation suits over health risks posed by the crops’ consumption. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57576835/critics-slam-obama-for-protecting-monsanto/

Obama signs ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ written by Monsanto-sponsored senator

United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation.

On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the California-based Monsanto Company from litigation.

With the president’s signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers. http://rt.com/usa/monsanto-bill-blunt-agriculture-006/

Over a decade ago, I started to get published for my positions against genetically-modified foods (Thiel R. Labeling of genetically modified foods should be a fundamental consumer right. HealthKeepers, 2000; 2 (3):16-19; Thiel R. ANMA’s official position on genetically-modified foods. ANMA Monitor, 1999;3(4)5-8). And since then, more and more information has come to light suggesting dangers to the environment and health related to GMOs.

About four years ago, I warned:

In the “Great Depression” most Americans and Brits had skills in growing food. This is no longer the case. Furthermore, modern crops have gotten more complicated as so many seeds are hybrids that they will not actually grow the type of foods most in the USA and UK are used to having. The coming food problems will also get worse once one or more genetically-modified crops suffers from some type of pestilence. The USA, to cite one example, could lose virtually all of its wheat or corn because of the dependence on genetically modified versions (which is especially true for crops like corn and soy). Prophecy for famines will be fulfilled (Matthew 24:7-8). (From China Buying USA Food, In Depression Will Chinese Eat While Americans & Brits Starve? May 21, 2010)

Notice something that Ezekiel was inspired to write:

15 ‘So it shall be a reproach, a taunt, a lesson, and an astonishment to the nations that are all around you, when I execute judgments among you in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I, the Lord, have spoken. 16 When I send against them the terrible arrows of famine which shall be for destruction, which I will send to destroy you, I will increase the famine upon you and cut off your supply of bread. 17 So I will send against you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you. Pestilence and blood shall pass through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I, the Lord, have spoken.’” (Ezekiel 5:15-17)

Notice that this shows famine, then pestilence, and then the sword. The above sequence seems to be slightly different than that Jesus listed as part of the “beginning of sorrows” (Mathew 24:7-8) as the sword comes afterwards. But since the sword should begin the Great Tribulation, the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7), this may be part of how the beginning of sorrows ties into the Great Tribulation–this also may suggest hunger and disease problems for the Anglo-nations prior to the start of the Great Tribulation.

The increasing use of genetically modified organisms for many of the grain crops in the USA is putting parts of humanity at major increased risk of unintended consequences such as famine and disease pestilences. Most of the corn and soy beans produced in the USA are genetically-modified. Soon, much of the wheat will be. Directly and indirectly, the USA and its Anglo-allies will cause most of the problems that it will be experiencing in the next several years.

As Jesus said:

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:36-37)

Tougher times are coming. And for some parts of the world these tougher time may be here now. People who can prepare, should: both spiritually and physically. (From Super Wheat: Solution or Disaster Awaiting? June 10, 2011)

So, it may be that the Anglo-nations will experience some real hunger as well as disease and/or other pestilences (that could possibly at least partially be triggered by excessive reliance on genetically-modified organisms as part of their agricultural production) that will weaken them enough so that the USA and its Anglo-allies will then be considered attackable by some of their enemies…

Because of sin, greed, and ignorance, America has been into producing genetically-modified foods. These “foods” are genetically identical which makes them susceptible to total elimination via famine-causing pestilential organisms. I have long suspected that the time will come when some type of pestilence will hit America’s genetically-modified grain crops like corn and wreak havoc on the land. Enough so, that this may embolden its enemies to attack Britain and/or the USA to begin the Great Tribulation. (Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2011, 2012, or 2013? Spring 2011)

Basically, I have long suspected that likely crop failures associated with GMO grains are putting the USA and its Anglo-allies at extreme risk of being destroyed. Most Americans do not like to accept this, but it is nonetheless true.  The USA keeps developing more and more genetically-modified ‘foods’ (GMO apples were approved by the US government last month).  This is not good.

The following was published as reason ten as to why US President Barack Obama was apocalyptic in my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States:

Barack Obama broke a campaign pledge about requiring that genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in foods be labeled (Philpott T. Obama’s broken promise on GMO Food Labeling. Mother Jones, October 6, 2011). And while he at some point in time may change on this, the fact is that he has taken steps to encourage the production and use of GMO “foods” (cf. Isaiah 55:2) (Anderman RH. Obama Deregulates GMO Crops Despite Supreme Court Injunction. Tikkun, June 2, 2011; Huff EA. The Obama administration love affair with GMOs is selling America down the river for agricultural ruin. Natural News, August 21, 2011). Increased reliance on GMOs by the United States puts the nation at major risk for nearly complete crop failures. The Bible warns that famines (Matthew 24:7) and food shortages (Revelation 6:5-6) are coming and Barack Obama has further helped set the stage for this. (Thiel B. Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States, Edition 2.0. Nazarene Books, 2013, pp. 47-48)

The time is coming when the USA will have severe food shortages. And at that same time, the USA may have to provide grain to China and other creditors that it owes when some Americans will be starving. The reliance on genetically-modified grain crops will likely contribute to disaster in the USA. It may even contribute to food inflation.

Yet, Congress and the US President have provided protection for the main company that produces these organisms. Genetically modified organisms are not natural foods.

Thousands of years ago, God inspired one of his prophets to pen the following, which encourages people to eat what is good:

2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. (Isaiah 55:2)

Intentionally eating GMOs, in my view, is not good. Furthermore, as science disregards God, they are also creating living organisms that combine DNA from animals and even humans together. This is not good and is an indication that many leaders in the world have truly lost many semblances of morality.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is planning on more experiments, after it restarts:

March 25, 2015

The restart of the Large Hadron Collider, after it has been turned off for two years, has been delayed by a short circuit in in one of its electromagnets.

The full delay could last more than a month, officials said. The LHC was set to be switched back on this week and begin its search for dark matter and other mysteries of the universe. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/large-hadron-collider-atom-smashing-delayed-by-short-circuit-10132393.html

Large Hadron Collider, the world’s most powerful particle collider located in Switzerland and France, is set to carry out an experiment this week that could disprove the Big Bang theory.The last time this machine was operated, scientists were able to discover the Higgs Boson. Who knows what they can find this time around. …

“While we are just getting ready to restart the LHC, it is admirable to notice the precision already achieved by the two experiments and the compatibility of their results. This is very promising for LHC Run 2,” says CERN Director of Research Sergio Bertolucci.

After the machine was shut-down in 2013, scientists worked on making it even more powerful. LHC has 10,000 magnets and upgraded superconducting interconnections. Each magnet was inspected individually during the maintenance period. http://cubiclane.com/2015/03/25/large-hadron-collider-cerns-large-hadron-collider-could-put-the-big-bang-theory-to-rest-22915

Despite problems, the LHC has been making history.  This European project has been heavily focused on antimatter, dark matter, and other physics applications.

When the Large Hadron Collider was in its infancy, many scientists doubted that antimatter could be produced and captured. But the LHC disproved that as it was able to produce and store antimatter.

Since the Beast of Revelation 13 will be European (Europa, the Beast, and Revelation and the YouTube video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?), I have long felt that the Large Hadron Collider project had major military potential (see Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009, p. 85).

Notice some of what I wrote in one of my books related to Barack Obama, the USA military, European military, the Beast, and technology:

Instead of completely strengthening the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), Barack Obama’s Administration instead decided to rely on Europe’s upcoming Galileo “GPS” for part of the U.S.A.’s military defense (U.S. and the EU to collaborate on the usage of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. Wire Update, BNO News, July 31, 2010). This would appear to give the rising European power a unique offensive and defensive capability against the U.S.A. (cf. Daniel 11:39; Revelation 13:3-4). It is dangerous to have a potential enemy control portions of one’s military communications systems.

Instead of increasing the U.S.A.’s role in particle collider technology, similar to some previous administrations, Barack Obama’s Administration has greatly weakened that. So much so, there is only one remaining U.S. particle accelerator and it is at risk of being gutted or shut down (Matson J. Nuclear Decelerator: Last U.S. Particle Collider is on Chopping Block. Scientific American, August 24, 2012). This is an area where Europe has clearly gained the lead over the U.S.A. since Barack Obama became president…

The Bible shows that the Beast will have special help from “unclean spirits” (Revelation 16:13) and will be considered to be unconquerable (Revelation 13:4).

Notice what the Bible says about this:

3…And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4, NKJV)

Notice that the military power of the Beast was something that the world will marvel, be astonished about. Why? Because no one really thought that the European Beast power had the military ability to defeat the U.S.A. with its Anglo-allies (Daniel 11:39), and then the Islamic King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43). Revelation 13:3-4 also supports the idea that the Beast may rise up because of violent civil unrest in Europe.

Technology may be key to a powerful European military. One aspect could include particle collider research. The number of colliders in the U.S.A. has dwindled down to one under the Obama and Bush Administrations, and the remaining one is facing budget cuts and possible closure. Yet, in Europe, it now has the leading one in the world, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and in 2012, Germany announced that it is planning a possibly even more advanced one called FAIR (FAIR stands for the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research).

I believe that Germany’s FAIR, along with the LHC and other technology, will help the Europeans produce military weaponry to fulfill certain end time prophecies. Since Revelation 13:4 is discussing what seems to be a unique type of warfare, this warfare likely includes certain high-tech weapons (electromagnetic pulse, neutron, unique delivery systems, etc.) that will be effective for a while (ultimately the Europeans will be overcome by what appears to be a Russian-led, mainly Asian, confederation, cf. Jeremiah 50:41-43 & Daniel 11:44, possibly by exploiting some technological flaw, like creating a software virus, etc., while also amassing troops, etc.). The FAIR and the LHC projects are also likely to spin-off economic benefits that may help propel Europe to be (for a short while) the economic leader of the world (cf. Revelation 18).

While the U.S.A., Australia, and others are currently worried mostly about China, the European developments will not be good for the Anglo-descended lands, including England. (Thiel B. Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term. Nazarene Books, 2013, pp. 47, 121-122)

Large physics projects tend to produce military weaponry. And by not having the more conventional military equipment like tanks in Germany, the USA itself will not be in a position to as effectively deal with whatever high-tech military equipment that Europe develops.

The power in Europe is starting to rise up. And yes, ultimately, what is likely to come from Europe’s Large Hadron Collider and/or Germany’s FAIR collider, will be used to as part of an attack on American (USA and possibly Canadian) forces. Additionally, I believe that Europe’s Galileo or similar technology (Galileo is an upcoming competitor to GPS that the USA has said it will partially rely on for its own military needs; see also Europe’s Galileo ‘GPS’ Hits Another Milestone and USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected) will help the Europeans when that happens as well as to help prevent counter-strikes by the USA.

Europe is concerned about Russian aggression and the USA’s direction.  Europe is moving forward with its space and military plans and few in the USA seem to realize that when it gets enough power, the USA will lose all of its. Specifically notice that the Bible shows that this King of the North will destroy those who are perceived to have the strongest military might and apparently divide up their land:

39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain (Daniel 11:39).

The “he” above is referring to a European leader called the King of the North in that chapter (Daniel 11:40) and the Beast from the sea in Revelation 13:1-10). The strongest fortresses in the world belong to the USA and to a much lessor extent, its English-speaking allies (for a more detailed explanation of why the USA and its Anglo-allies are involved, as well as the dividing of their lands, please see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel). Daniel 11:24 seems to parallel this as it teaches that the King of the North has plans against the strongholds and succeeds against the prosperous. Catholic translations, and the position of many COG groups, seem to miss this, yet notice that other translations of verse 39 also support this idea:

39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god. Those who acknowledge him he shall load with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price. (ESV)

39 He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.. (NASB)

39 Claiming this foreign god’s help, he will attack the strongest fortresses. He will honor those who submit to him, appointing them to positions of authority and dividing the land among them as their reward. (NLT)

39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price. (NIV)

39 He’ll take action against the strongest fortresses. With the help of a foreign god, he’ll recognize those who honor him, making them rule over many, and he’ll parcel out the land for a profit. (ISB of 2012)

This passage about the “strongest fortresses” in Daniel 11:39 cannot be referring to the continental Europeans as they support the King of the North, nor can it be referring to the Russians, Chinese, or other Asians as they do not get involved until verse 44 (see also The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy).

In the 21st century, it must be a reference to the USA.

The world order is changing, European technology is rising, and the USA will not be able to remain on top indefinitely.

Some wish to believe otherwise, but the USA’s debt and budget issues will help insure that.

Julius Czar Putin?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015


Bust of Vladimir Putin (DIE WELT) and Julius Caesar (Wikia)

COGwriter

Russian President Vladimir Putin is being portrayed as a modern Julius Caesar.  The first article has been machined translated from German and after the original German, is followed by an article in English:

March 24, 2015

 New statue celebrates Putin as Roman Imperator

Cast in bronze and in the pose of Julius Caesar is a bust that so shows the Russian President Vladimir Putin. The statue is to be erected in his hometown.

Neue Statue feiert Putin als römischen Imperator

Gegossen in Bronze und in der Pose eines Julius Caesar – so zeigen Anhänger des russischen Präsidenten Wladimir Putin. Die Statue soll in seiner Heimatstadt aufgestellt werden.  http://www.welt.de/politik/article138711142/Neue-Statue-feiert-Putin-als-roemischen-Imperator.html

Russians erect statue of Putin as a Roman emperor

There’s a group of Russians in Vladimir Putin’s hometown who love their leader so much that they are erecting a statue of him in the likeness of a Roman emperor — complete with plated military armor and a flowing toga.

“We planned for quite a while to do a project like this,” design manager Andrey Polyakov told Central European News. “Putin is [Russia’s] wisdom, its courage, and its symbol which is embodied in the image of the Emperor that we have created.”

It’s hard not to think of Julius Caesar when gazing upon the clay version of the Russian president’s bust, made by sculptor Pavel Greshnikov. The 42-year-old says the decision to use the classical design commonly associated with Roman statues was an obvious one based on the personality and achievements of Putin.

Julius Caesar conquered lands and it was basically because of him that Rome became an empire.

Vladimir Putin has long wanted to be the ruler of his version of the Russian side of the ‘Holy Roman Empire’ (Putin claimed to be re-establishing ‘Third Holy Roman Empire,’ but that is happening elsewhere).  Notice also:

As Putin slowly expands the borders of the Russian Federation and recovers ancient territory of imperial Russia, he believes he is expanding the Third Holy Roman Empire.  http://www.westernjournalism.com/onward-christian-russian-soldiers-putin-believes-resurrecting-third-holy-roman-empire/#Cp5aggpzGoQqYEwJ.99

Russia annexed Crimea last year and has been involved in the conflict with Ukraine. Vladimir Putin’s Eurasian Union officially went in affect on January 1, 2015.

Vladimir Putin wants his version of the Roman Empire and is working on it.

Notice something from several days ago:

Why Czar Vladimir Putin is always correct

The Japan Times Thursday 19th March, 2015

In Russia, the old saying goes, the czar is always right. Whether an imperial Romanov, a Soviet commissar or President Vladimir Putin, no matter how harsh the regime, Russians have traditionally viewed their leaders as virtually infallible. Contrary to the logic that oppression breeds discontent, Russians have endured some of the worst despots in history, yet they have a near-apocalyptic fear of change of power. The end of a regime promises not hope but a cataclysm.

Throughout Russian history, the population has supported its leaders regardless of the policies they implement, often despite them. This explains the Russian people’s enduring devotion to a ‘;strong hand’; ruler, and their equal distrust of pluralist democracy. In addition, when the ‘;other’; — for example, the United States or European Union — lectures the Kremlin on its oppressive politics, Russians band together even more tightly behind their ruler. As we are seeing with Putin today.  http://www.indiagazette.com/index.php/sid/231181455

Also notice:

Origin of word CZAR
New Latin czar, from Russian tsar’, from Old Russian tsĭsarĭ, from Gothic kaisar, from Greek or Latin; Greek, from Latin Caesar.
                                                               http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/czar

German leaders have sometimes used the title Kaiser, whereas Russian ones Czar.  In both cases, they are trying to imply they are conquering emperors in the image of Julius Caesar.

But simply claiming the title is not enough.  Normally they tend to build/support their militaries to back themselves up.  Russia is trying to do that.

So, will Russia be the predominant force that will destroy the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand?

No, Bible prophecy indicates that will be led by a European power (Daniel 11:39), though Asian forces will likely be involved (especially related to Australia and New Zealand).  It is highly likely that the next ‘Caesar’ will be German (see also Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy).

Russia is a military threat, however, to several parts of the world.  For a time, it will likely have a treaty with Europe–but this will not last (cf. Daniel 11:44).  Ultimately a Russian-influence coalition will destroy much of Europe (Jeremiah 50 & 51).  However, that will not happen until towards the end of the ‘Day of the Lord.’ An event over seven years in the future from now (see When Will the Great Tribulation Begin? The ‘Day of the Lord’?).

But Vladimir Putin is trying to prepare Russia for that now. His allowance of the portrayal of himself a a Tsar/Czar is an outward indication of how he views his role.

Pope Francis allegedly performs a ‘half miracle’

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

COGwriter

Some believe that Pope Francis performed a what is being called a half- miracle:

March 23, 2015

Some say Pope Francis might be responsible for a “half-miracle.”During a mass in Naples on Saturday, he was given a vial of dried blood belonging to St. Gennaro, the city’s patron saint.

The archbishop of Naples says when Francis kissed the glass, the blood half-liquified and the cardinal declared it a miracle.

According to the Catholic Herald, Saturday was the first time the blood has liquified in the papal presence since 1848, when it did so in front of Pope Pius IX. http://www.aol.com/article/2015/03/23/pope-francis-credited-for-half-miracle/21156386/

The blood relic of St. Gennaro, patron saint of Naples, today miraculously liquefied in the presence of Pope Francis, the first time the miracle has occured in the presence of a pontiff since 1848.

“His blood has half-liquefied,” the Archbishop of Naples, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, said at the conclusion of Pope Francis’ address to diocesan priests and religious in the city’s cathedral. “It’s a sign that St. Gennaro loves the Pope, who is Neapolitan like us.”

Pope Francis immediately and lightheartedly replied: “The archbishop said the blood is half-liquefied. It means the saint loves us halfway. We all have to convert a little more so that he loves us more.”

Today’s wondrous occurance knows just one precedent. It is the first time St. Gennaro’s blood relic has liquefied in the presence of a pontiff since the miracle occurred in the presence of Pope Pius IX in 1848.

Pius IX was the longest-reigning elected pope in the history of the Catholic Church (31 years). He convened the First Vatican Council, which decreed papal infallibility; defined the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, meaning that Mary was conceived without original sin; and he was the last Pope to rule as the sovereign of the papal states which fell to the Italian army in 1870. http://www.aleteia.org/en/religion/article/st-gennaros-blood-relic-miraculously-liquifies-in-the-presence-of-pope-francis-in-naples-5869691155251200

When the Archbishop of Naples picked up the vial containing the 1700-year-old dried blood of the city’s patron Saint Januarius to present it to Pope Francis Saturday, someone in the Naples cathedral shouted: “Miracle.” According to witnesses, the blood of the saint had become liquid again—at least in part.

The archbishop, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe said, “That’s a sign that Saint Januarius loves Naples and Pope Francis: his blood is half liquefied.”

Francis kissed the relic and played down the “miracle” saying: “If it’s only half liquefied it means that the saint only half loves us. We all need to convert more, so that the saint will be fully pleased.” Minutes later, however, the blood had reportedly reverted to a fully liquid state. http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/03/22/miracle-proclaimed-as-saints-blood-liquefies-in-the-presence-of-pope-francis/

Francis hinted that this was a type of supernatural occurrence with Catholic ramifications.  To me, this would be a false sign otherwise called a lying wonder, presuming a demonic manifestation happened (if this was not a trick nor lie, then that is what it would have been–unless there was a truly natural explanation).

Shortly after he became pontiff, there was a report that Pope Francis performed some type of exorcism (see Pope Francis calls for new economic order and is alleged to have performed a public exorcism: Could these be signs of the final Antichrist?).  Later in 2013, he claimed to have received a message from a dead Catholic (see Francis claims a dead Catholic sent him a ‘sign’).

There was also a report a while back about some possible healing-related miracle to Pope Francis.

Is Pope Francis involved in some type of signs and lying wonders?

Well, the half-blood ‘miracle’ would seem to qualify as such–such ‘miracles’ are part of Satan’s Plan. Could Pope Francis be the last pope and THE Antichrist?

Although his age and preference to not remain pontiff for more than a couple more years are against that (see also Francis not planning on being around too much longer), there still remains a chance he could be.  Furthermore, even if he is not, he has helped set the stage for the final Antichrist with his Marianism, ecumenical agenda, and some of his economic positions.

The Bible warns that the false prophet, the beast of the earth and THE Antichrist (although there have been antichrists since the time of the Apostle John), will perform signs and be involved with a different type of financial order:

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:11-17)

Pope Francis has NOT done enough to clearly be this individual.

Yet, all the events I have discussed in today’s post point to that as a possibility (and are consistent with the many of the details I wrote about in my book The Last Pope: Do Biblical and Catholic Prophecies Point to Pope Francis?).

Related to Marianism, he consecrated his pontificate to ‘Mary’ shortly after becoming pope and even further had his pontificate consecrated to the Lady of Fatima a couple of months later (Pope Francis’ pontificate consecrated to ‘Lady of Fatima’).

Since 2013, I have posted that if he is not the final Antichrist, he certainly is setting the stage for the one who will be.

Antibiotic use in livestock is a threat to humans (and livestock)

Antibiotics Use Warning poster (Consumer Reports)

COGwriter

Use of antibiotics in livestock is projected to increase globally and that is considered a risk for humans:

The Antibiotics Problem in Meat

March 23, 2015

A new study suggests that a consumer demand for chicken and pork in place like India, Russia, China, and Brazil will help drive a large increase in overuse of the drugs by 2030. …

B had leukemia, and she developed an infection that built up resistance to the hospital’s most powerful antibiotics even as she was being pumped full of them. She died the day after Spellberg told her husband the hospital had nothing left to try. In the book, Spellberg describes the case as happening “several years ago.” …

Antibiotic resistance may make cases like B’s much more common in the future. One of the biggest culprits is the widespread use of antibiotics in livestock. Industrial farms feed animals low doses of the drugs in order to promote growth and ward off infections within densely packed herds. From there, natural selection does its job: The bacteria that can overpower the drugs survive and multiply, and they make their way out into the environment through water, urine, and feces. In the U.S., 80 percent of antibiotics are used in animals, though the industry is moving away from the practice.  http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/03/the-next-big-antibiotic-resistance-threat/388430/

Global use of antimicrobials in livestock production is growing, according to a new study published … in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

According to the study, livestock producers across the globe used more than 63,000 tons of antibiotics in 2010. That number is expected to rise by 67 percent in the next 15 years and double in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, a projection that reflects soaring demand for meat worldwide, the researchers said.

While antibiotics can prevent disease and increase growth in cattle, chickens and pigs, bacteria exposed to the drugs can become antibiotic-resistant, posing a threat to both livestock and humans.

Ramanan Laxminarayan, the study’s senior author and director of the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy in Washington, D.C. told NPR that the “circumstantial evidence, linking use in animals to drug-resistant bacteria in humans, is exceedingly strong.”

Pharmaceutical companies and agricultural groups have said there is no evidence that these drug-resistant bacteria are a threat to people’s health.

Europe has already scaled back on the use of antibiotics on animals, allowing their use only to prevent infections. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/study-finds-overuse-antibiotics-livestock/

Chickens and pigs are often raised much too closely together.  This is wrong.   Notice that righteous farmers have consideration for their animals:

10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal, But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. (Proverbs 12:10)

Unnecessary animal cruelty is wrong.

Furthermore, because of overuse of antibiotics, the USA and many other parts of the world are setting themselves up for the possibility of getting infections from bacteria that are resistant to various antibiotics.  Yet, the Europeans and their animals are not quite in the same situation.

This poses a major risk for the USA, Asia, and other places.  The USA, Canada, UK, and some other places could get affected and Europe missed.  This would weaken the USA and make it more vulnerable to attack from Europe–an attack that will happen according to the Bible (Daniel 11:39).  The USA will be weakened before it is attacked and taken over.

Notice that famines and pestilences will happen PRIOR to the start of the Great Tribulation:

4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:4-8)

Notice that the Great Tribulation itself does not begin until later (see also When Will the Great Tribulation Begin?):

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains…21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:15-16, 21)

The sorrows that Jesus spoke of include ‘troubles’ and famines:

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

Diseases and pests can truly cause troubles.  The sorrows will worsen and the Great Tribulation will begin.

By using so many antibiotics in animals, the USA and other places are setting themselves up for ‘super bugs’ which are resistant to most medical interventions.  This could cause a dramatic loss of livestock (cf. Deuteronomy 28:18) as well as cause many humans to become sick and even die.

Combine this with the risk that the USA has with more and more of its genetically-modified crops and it becomes apparent that the USA specifically (along with the UK and Canada, which tend to have similar practices) setting itself up for agricultural failure which could lead to famine.  The following prophecies will affect the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies:

12 They say to their mothers,”Where is grain and wine?” (Lamentations 2:12)

19 “Arise, cry out in the night, At the beginning of the watches; Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward Him For the life of your young children, Who faint from hunger at the head of every street.”  (Lamentations 2:19)

12 One-third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them. (Ezekiel 5:12)

The fact that the agricultural and pharmaceutical industries try to deny the risks of using antibiotics in livestock, is not proof that there is no risk.  Those industries have been wrong about many things in the past.

As far as personal antibiotic use, I have not used any in several decades.  I do believe that antibiotics are overused for both humans and livestock.

As far as livestock goes, if livestock were raised more humanly, this would decrease the ‘need’ for antibiotics in them.  Furthermore, the greed of getting everything cheaper is simply not good for human health.  While some meat is healthy in the human diet, high amounts can be a risk.  Hence, if not using antibiotics in livestock means a small increase in the price of meat, and people then eat less of it, that is not a bad result for most people.

Perhaps it should be pointed out that the fourth sorrow Jesus referred to in Matthew 24, like the fourth horseman of Revelation 6, involves pestilence.

While this will affect people in the USA, UK, and Canada, it will also affect people in other lands, likely before as well as after the Great Tribulation begins:

7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7-8)

In modern times, the spread of diseases is so much easier than in more ancient times.  But some of the reasons go way back.  The Apostle Paul warned:

10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, (1 Timothy 6:10)

That was true then and now.  Notice something Jesus said:

39 Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness. (Luke 11:39)

In modern times, we have scientists and government officials who act like ‘experts’ but are affected by greed and other motivations.

It probably should also be mentioned that because of the use of antiseptics and antibiotics, modern hospitals have become breeding grounds for more difficult bacteria. A time of severe pestilences is coming.

Jesus foretold it.  Greed and modern agricultural practices are setting parts of the world up for it.  Europe may escape part of it.
