M&M’s Martin Weiss analysis about WWIII missed something


A reader send me a link to the following claims by Martin Weiss of Money and Markets:

March 9, 2015

World War III? How, Where and Why?

So today, my mission is to accomplish three things:

First I want to dispel the notion that a future World War III might culminate in a nuclear holocaust. That scenario is far less likely today than it was during the Cold War of the last century.

Second, I want to describe more explicitly how a World War III could begin and what real dangers it does pose.

Finally, I will connect the dots to the economy, your money, and your investments.

Just bear in mind that this is a very big topic. …

Why a Nuclear Holocaust is Extremely Unlikely

Anything is possible. …

According to Carl Sagan, who coined the term, after any massive nuclear attacks between two superpowers, soot and smoke would create a dark blanket of clouds covering most of the planet. Average temperatures would drop below zero centigrade. And Earth could witness “a mass extinction event,” reminiscent of the “Great Dying” of 252 million years ago, when 70% of land species disappeared.

Anyone who has — or has ever had — decision-making authority over the deployment of nuclear bombs knows these scenarios all too well.

Ultimately, this fear is what prevailed during the Cold War of the 20th Century. And thankfully, it’s the same ubiquitous fear that hangs over every nuke deployment decision likely to be made in the 21st.

In that regard, nothing has changed. Thank God. …

No one dares use nukes. Everyone knows it’s suicidal. …

So What Could World War III Look Like? …

Economic war has already been declared, particularly among three of the world’s largest superpowers — the United States, the European Union and Russia. …

Perhaps most concerning of all, cyber wars are already escalating at a rapid pace, with the U.S., UK, China, Russia, Israel, and North Korea first on the cyber-battlefield.

Former spy chief Mike McConnell believes a cyber war might be compared to a nuclear war by the scale of destruction. …

Connecting the Dots to Your Money

I see two phases:

In Phase I, the reality, and the fear,of these kinds of World War III scenarios drives the Global Money Tsunami — capital flows of scared money to the one economy still perceived to be the safest and least vulnerable, the United States. …  The U.S. dollar, despite setbacks, continues to gain in strength.

The U.S. economy, despite its continuing big debt burden, continues to benefit.

The highest quality U.S. stocks, despite zigzag up-and-down periods like now, make their owners wealthy.

But …

In Phase II, if economic wars, proxy wars and cyber wars become truly destructive, everyone loses: World trade shrinks. Highly indebted governments impose austerity or they default. Global fear and depression replace global investment and growth. http://www.moneyandmarkets.com/world-war-iii-2-70164#.VP3R1SsadW8

In January 2015, M&M’s Larry Edelson discussed the impact of war cycles on the world and their impact: his view and a more biblical one is in the short video: Collapse of the Euro and Dollar? War in 2020?

Getting to Martin Weiss, while he does have a certain grasp of economics and risk, he apparently does not view biblical prophecy the way we in the Continuing Church of God do.  Like many others, Martin Weiss’ analysis missed Bible prophecy.

Destruction is coming to the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies.  While the Bible does not use terms like ‘nuclear,’ it does have descriptions of destruction coming that could be caused by nuclear or other advanced weaponry.

Something that resembles nuclear devastation is one of the prophesied curses mentioned in the Bible:

23 ‘The whole land is brimstone, salt, and burning; it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow there, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger and His wrath.’ 24 All nations would say, ‘Why has the Lord done so to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?’ 25 Then people would say: ‘Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt; 26 for they went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods that they did not know and that He had not given to them. 27 Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against this land, to bring on it every curse that is written in this book. 28 And the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger, in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.’
29 “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.  (Deuteronomy 29:23-29).

6…He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 6-7)

19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts
The land is burned up,
And the people shall be as fuel for the fire; No man shall spare his brother.
20 And he shall snatch on the right hand
And be hungry;
He shall devour on the left hand
And not be satisfied; Every man shall eat the flesh of his own arm. 21 Manasseh shall devour Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh; Together they shall be against Judah (Isaiah 9:19-21).

The above descriptions are consistent with a nuclear or similar attack. Manasseh represents the USA and Ephraim its British-descended allies. THIS HAS NOT YET HAPPENED IN HISTORY AND IS A PROPHECY FOR OUR TIME. While Israel was uprooted historically, the land did not burn up or become brimstone. Deuteronomy 29:23-29 provides one reason why most Protestants and most others that profess Christ do not understand these prophecies–they do not do the words of the law that God expects His people to do today.

Perhaps this would be a good time to mention that private Catholic prophecies foretell a time when a Great Monarch will rise up and that he will destroy the English peoples (more details, including some prophecies from Nostradamus, are in the article Who is the King of the North?).

Furthermore, some Catholics seem to warn against something like this:

Zachary the Armenian (published 1854 and summarized in 2010): And then there would be the war that the prophecy refers to as “the struggle of the strong, against the strong”. This empire of the north…will go to war against North America and North America will be fall and be conquered and brought into bondage. The next phase is the most frightful thing of all. It is then that Zachary says this text published in 1854, “and then the whole world fell under the dominion of the first born of hell.” (Originally by Priest Fattecelli, Day of Anger: The Hand of God Upon an Empire, 1854, as paraphrased by Priest P. Kramer, What are the missing contents of the third secret? Fatima Crusader, 95, Summer 2010, pp. 45-46)

Josyp Terelya from the Ukraine while in Marmora Ontario (September 13, 1992 allegedly from a Marian apparition): Pray in this chapel for peace and for love in this country of Canada. People are not aware that the prophesied times are upon them…you are on the threshold of the day of judgment. (Flynn T & L. The Thunder of Justice. Maxkol Communications, Sterling (VA), 1993, p. 287)

Now, Martin Weiss is correct that governments are engaging in more cyber espionage. That is expected to continue (cf. Revelation 13:15-18).

In his newsletter Martin Weiss explains why various nuclear powers would not wish to start a nuclear war, because they fear that the retaliatory strike back would destroy their country and possibly the world.  The reality is that something he has not seemingly considered has changed.

Which is?

What if an ally started a nuclear attack and had the ability to jam communications to the degree that a retaliatory strike either would not happen or be limited?

While various people will claim that the Europeans are the friends and allies of America and Britain, the Bible has the following warning:

1 How lonely sits the city
That was full of people!
How like a widow is she,
Who was great among the nations!
The princess among the provinces
Has become a slave!

2 She weeps bitterly in the night,
Her tears are on her cheeks;
Among all her lovers
She has none to comfort her.
All her friends have dealt treacherously with her;
They have become her enemies. (Lamentations 1:1-2)

The USA and Great Britain (including its Anglo-Commonwealth members, like Australia and Canada) were “great among the nations.” And the Bible is clear that betrayal is coming from allies, national FRIENDS!

Furthermore, Europe has control over some of the USA’s nuclear arsenal and has an often overlooked nuclear capability (Can Europe really nuke the USA and UK?).  Europe also has been working on a new satellite ‘GPS’ communications’ system called Galileo that the USA has announced that it will rely on for part of its (the USA’s) military defense (see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected).  This will give the Europeans a unique ability to cause a blitzkrieg type war, possibly involving nuclear weapons, against the USA.

In addition to this, because of the Snowden matter, the USA has agreed to share more espionage and other secrets with the Europeans ( see also The Snowden Leaks are Leading to the Destruction of the USA).  To further placate the Europeans, the USA put a German General in charge of the US Army in Europe (see US Army in Europe to report to a German general!).  Add to this the increased amount of NATO’s top leadership falling under European control, and there is a scenario that most people have not considered.  Plus, European leaders keep calling for a truly European army (see EU Commission President Juncker calls for a European army in the face of the threat from Russia). The time will come when Europe will be in a position to fulfill biblical prophecies related to the destruction of the USA (e.g. Daniel 11:39).

The reality is that if Europe chooses to turn against the USA, it has the nuclear ability to do so pretty much any time.

Related to the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies of the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, we have seen an acceptance of immorality. Romans 1:18-32 states that not only those ” those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

As far as the US dollar goes, despite some occasional gains in strength, notice the following:

March 9, 2015

Dollar has declined as reserve currency over past decade from 70% of global reserves to 61%

The time will come when the US dollar is totally worthless and will stop being a world reserve currency.

The Bible also has an end time prophecy that those who read it may want to run:

2 Then the Lord answered me and said:

“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. (Habakkuk 2:2-3)

What is this end time prophecy about that should cause people to run? It is a prophecy about debt accumulation:

6 “Will not all these take up a proverb against him,
And a taunting riddle against him, and say,
‘Woe to him who increases
What is not his — how long?
And to him who loads himself with many pledges’?
7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly?
Will they not awaken who oppress you?
And you will become their booty.
8 Because you have plundered many nations,
All the remnant of the people shall plunder you (Habakkuk 2:6-8)

The USA is the most indebted nation of all time. And on a per capita basis, the UK is one of the most indebted nations on earth.

Martin Weiss is correct that the time will come when the highly indebted will have problems and possibly default.  The biblical reality, as Habakkuk 2 tells of, is that it will end in disaster for the USA. On what will happen to any particular highly indebted government, Martin Weiss’ analysis, however, did not get that specific.

The fact is that the 6000 years God gave humankind to rule itself is about to come to an end, which means we are nearer to the start of the Great Tribulation, WWIII, and even WWIV/WWV (related to the staging at Armageddon and involving a confederation known as the “kings from the east” Revelation 16:12). We are nearing the time of great distress.

WWIII will come, and actions by the Europeans, the USA, and others are leading to it.
