- (Hab 2:2)
Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
Is there a teaching here in the closing passages of Matthew? Yes, I think there is. I do not think this verse was just for the historical record of Christ's resurrection but also put in here to show us the power and motivations of the world system as well as its tools. The soldiers were bribed to spread a lie about Christ and his resurrection.
Being simple brutes, most were probably quite happy to repeat it for a few more denarius in their money pouch. This is the way of the world and the world systems. It often runs on bribery and lies and often the target is Christians. Yet in this passage we see the arrival of a new king and a new spiritual reality that those who held power were not prepared to deal with so they resorted to the same things evil governments always resort to - evil means to bolster their power and hide the truth. What was the truth they wanted to bribe into the back pages of history?
Christ is Risen.
Christianity could easily have become a forgotten footnote in those times for there were more than a few men running around claiming to be prophets and Messiah's. Yet after two thousand years, the words of Christ are even more true today than almost any hearer of those days probably thought they could ever be.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
The words of Jesus have not passed away and the things he foretold are an ever growing reality in our daily newspapers and headlines.
Blessed is the man or woman who believes on his name, puts his faith in Christ and does the things he has commanded.
Yea, blessed is that man indeed; in particular in the days that lie just ahead.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
New!! Watson's Economic And Political Review March 2013
These reports are how this ministry keeps going. If you want to see this site keep on, go ahead and buy one. I have deliberately kept them dirt cheap for all of you (despite urgings from readers and friends to raise the price) because I know many of you are not rich and are struggling. I am not in this for the money.
I say this to you in all honesty before each of you and God that when one of the most wealthy men in the world (you would know his name) read my economic crisis report, he liked it. Not only did he like it, he said that I should be charging about six times the price that I do. Now I am not going to do that, but I will say that without support this ministry will be updated considerably less than it is...like maybe once a month. Y-O-U the readers must decide if this ministry is worth my time. You can do that by purchasing these reports for $7 or donating.
I hesitate to even take more from those of you who have been so generous in the past. No, its the other 95% who haven't helped. I know many of you are not in a position to. I also know that many of you are.
This is the latest issue in my series of reports. This issue deals with the possibility of War in Asia and area's of potential tension in the SCO along with the major issue hitting the news today, that being sequestration. I also discuss the situation in North Korea and delve into what may be the real reasons for the latest fits of war talk coming out of the hermit kingdom.
Today's world has been engulfed by a serious economic crisis. But whenever there is a crisis of this magnitude and with so much at stake, the possibly of war, armed conflict or otherwise increases significantly each day the crisis rolls on. Powerful nations who have long been sidelined see new opportunities to flex their geopolitical muscles in view of the increasingly evident decent of US military and economic power and that of her European Allies.
America's decline is going to be real and felt around the world until some very unpleasant domestic political realities are dealt with and such a resolution appears many years away. Before we talk about where the potentialities for future conflict are, let us take a quick look at where some of the sequestration cut are going to hit...

The issue? Obama's fanciful projections versus the real cost of care and insurance companies balance sheets.The Devil's Justice Thrives In Secret
Those of you who think you won't be effected... come out of your hypnosis. The difference between you and those warning is that many of you haven't bothered to look into this (the numbers) and are swayed by the elevated melanin levels in the Presidents epidermis or the fact that he suports gay marriage, or loves 'green' or listens to your favorite pop band. Not what it's going to cost YOU and millions of other Americans. You don't know becaue Obamacare hasn't kicked in yet... you don't care because you think it's 'the other guy' who is going to have to pay. Medicare's expansion is a great thing... in principle. But the fact is there are many states where it isn't going to happen. They just cannot afford it and even those who promised to expand it... cannot afford to.
Obamacare is going to drive many small business people right out of business.. no joke.
It's going to make it too expensive for them to stay in business in the US. What happens then?
They move overseas and take their payrolls with them.
If its really justice, it can be open and public for all to see. If it's injustice, it must be in secret and kept secret.
It sad what Cameron had done to that quaint little island. I had some very happy memories living there years ago. Today, I wouldn't set foot anywhere the Union Jack flies. Who knows what secret evidence some crook may concoct that no one will ever see?Today, they put people in jail for just reading forbidden books in England.
The tragedy is that Britain fought a terrible war against the very same system that Cameron is slowly erecting in the UK. Is he an offspring of Bloody Mary, whose persecutions included burning those who had 'forbidden books'?
Under the Heresy Acts, numerous Protestants were executed in the Marian Persecutions. Many rich Protestants, including John Foxe, chose exile, and around 800 left the country. The first executions occurred over a period of five days in early February 1555: John Rogers on 4 February, Laurence Saunders on 8 February, and Rowland Taylor and John Hooper on 9 February. The imprisoned Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer was forced to watch Bishops Ridley and Latimer being burned at the stake. Cranmer recanted, repudiated Protestant theology, and rejoined the Catholic faith. Under the normal process of the law, he should have been absolved as a repentant. Mary, however, refused to reprieve him. On the day of his burning, he dramatically withdrew his recantation. All told 283 were executed, most by burning. The burnings proved so unpopular, that even Alfonso de Castro, one of Philip's own ecclesiastical staff, condemned them, and Philip's adviser, Simon Renard, warned him that such "cruel enforcement" could "cause a revolt". Mary persevered with the policy, which continued until her death and exacerbated anti-Catholic and anti-Spanish feeling among the English people. The victims of the persecutions became lauded as martyrs.. - WikipediaToday its the religion of secular humanism/Atheism (and it is the worlds most violent and perverted religion) imprisoning and torturing Muslims, not Catholics and Protestants. Some of these men captured by the UK are indeed terrorists and many are just poor folks picked up in the wrong place at the wrong time, have dark skin and speak with an accent and may at one time had a casual acquaintance with someone who may have had extremist ties (like was picked up by a cab once with a driver whose name was Ahmed...) and probably didn't even know it then.
But like I have said before, not all atheists are really so. Many of them are actually satanists in disguise. Atheism, in most definitions means 'no god' as in they do not believe; but for those who are really satanists, it's 'no god' as in they will never submit...
...just like satan.
South Korea is reeling from a major Cyberattack, one that at least on the surface is not all that dissimilar to what we saw in the US against Chase. Account holders had their accounts zeroed out. In the South, according to media reports, major Korean banks as well as TV stations were hit in a major attack. But there are some similarities and dissimilarities.Cyprus: A Time Out But 'Levy' Will Come Anyway
First off, the Chase attack, while very bad was not devastating. Yes, it was an inconvenience in the US but there is one very big difference to account holders. US Chase customers are going to get their money re-applied to their accounts. South Korean account holders... well it is not a certainty, if they don't have some kind of hard copy (paper) proof of their holdings. What about the back up systems you might ask? The secondary systems got fried. I use that word carefully because all indications are that many a hard drive that contained critical data were permanently destroyed and the data is unrecoverable. This happened even though the back up systems were 'air gaped' (disconnected from the net).
What does this mean? It means that this was as much a cyberattack as it was an 'inside job' (North Korean spies who were sleepers inside the bank). Not just at one bank but at all the ones attacked. Scary Isn't it? But all of this is going to be hitting the news wires over the next several months because there is a lot of money that just 'disappeared' and that means people, individuals, cities and corporations are not going to be making their payments because... well.... they no longer have any money. Now it is entirely possible that the Koreans were smart enough to have tertiary back up systems that still have much of this data and given the long standing tense, near conflict situation with the North, this is more than just a little likely. Hopefully they have them in some hardened facility with only the most trusted people with access to them.
Needless to say that South Korean government is in a serious panic; very serious panic. Panic because a month from now, maybe longer, if there are no tertiary back up systems, these banks may be closed. How can you open a bank up with everyones balance at zero? Me? I am not one of those coincidence theorists. Never have been. In one week we have seen
-Chase banks account holders have their accounts zeroed out.The three may all be perfectly unrelated. But I have never been one to just look at the surface. I look behind the surface and ask myself who benefits? Who gets ahead in these moves if (big if... granted) there is some kind of coordination.
-South Korea have some of its major banks accounts Zero'd out.
-Cyprus' banks now closed after the Brussles/Berlin Axis attempted to Hijack 10% of the Citizens savings (and still may suceed).
China? I don't think China moved here. China has a lot of internal issues to deal with right now, especially dealing with corruption and what might turn into a very nasty internal power struggle. She does not need these kinds of headaches right now. The North Koreans seem the most suspect. Their leader, I am reliably informed seems to be suffering from the same possibly genetically passed on mental problems that his father had. It is difficult to say for certain out here on the geopolitical 'bleachers'.
What can be said for certain is that whoever coordinated this attack had it planned out to the 'T", knew what to hit and with what. If I were sitting in the big chair, I would look for large sums of money or gold hitting South Korean accounts and making sure they weren't paid by someone else to do this and hide it all behind the 'fog of war'.
So says chairman of EU's finance ministers. More and more it looks like the Euro isn't a currency... it's a noose.

______Is The Pope For Real?
20 March 2013
Thanks to God, I have some truly excellent sources of info and my exceptionally well placed Vatican sources have relayed this to me. Please pray for this new Pope. The things that we are reading about him in the press is not a PR campaign. This man is very serious about making significant, very, very significant - even fundamental changes in the Vatican.
This stuff about poverty? He means it. This talk of serving the poor? He is in earnest. This Pope means business and has no truck with the perversions and corruptions inside the Church. His first meeting with his Cardinals did not go well. He read them the riot act and essentially did the same thing Benedict did when he left, called them what they are, a group of pompous, corrupted, cocaine snorting pedophiles who are notChristian. He let them know in no uncertain terms that the Church is going to be a very different institution and her riches are no longer going towards personal Villa's, Chateaus, hookers, little kids and cocaine parties, but to help the poor and downtrodden. He is talking about opening orphanages and hospitals in the Vatican City state to help the poor as well as the forgotten ones, like the homeless and drug addicts.
This man really wants to transform the Church into what Christ intended it to be. As one Christian man has told me, "This is Gods man, pray for him". So I shall, I exhort all of you to do the same. He has many enemies inside the Church - call them the 'Smoke of Satan' (SOS) crowd.. Know this - Francis did not get elected by a wide margin. There was a revolt. A revolt from Latin America, Asia and Africa They decided to put a non-European on the Throne and were able to co-opt some Americans to assist in Francis' election. I will also add that they had some outside help that ensured Francis' election.
But when Francis spoke with his cardinals about the poverty of the Church, some of them walked out right in the middle of his speech. One he basically fired, sending them off to a monastery, castigating them on their past episodes of pedophilia. In fact, the Cardinal was told to pick on someone their own size who can quickly meet out justice if they tried any such antics on them. I assume he meant with a knuckle sandwich and a nice kick in the place on the male anatomy where it hurts the most. Word has it that very, very soon this Pope will direct to disallow his Cardinals and Archbishops to further protect child molesters in the priesthood. He sees this not a Church matter but as a criminal matter and will direct his people to turn those matters completely over to local law enforcement and that a convicted pedophile will be defrocked. In short, the Church will no longer protect pedophile priests while he is Pope.
In short, this Pope's whole persona and even entourage is clearly and unmistakably very different from any Pope of the recent past. His aids wear simple Jesuit robes and are not the kinds of people who are going to be flashy and arrogant; much to the consternation of the SOS crowd. So I want to reiterate for all here clearly and urgently..
Please pray for Pope Francis. He will be forced to look over his shoulder and have his food tasted because he knows the last Pope who attempted far reaching reforms lasted 33 days. Know this as well, this Pope is old, is not in the greatest of health and only has one lung.
I am not a Catholic, but I depart from many of my Protestant readers in that I know that there are saved and Holy Spirit filled men in that Church. Men who know of its doctrinal errors and its deep administrative, legal, moral and spiritual problems, but chose to work within it. So for those of you who like to castigate the Church, here is your chance to help bring it back to its simpler roots. How?
Sincerely pray for Pope Francis that he can bring the Church out of darkness and use it to bring the gospel of Christ to those whom God has called to salvation and that the Church starts to look upon its treasure not in numbered Swiss bank accounts, but in the number of souls it saves and people it helps. I exhort all of you to be careful pointing fingers at Catholics whose errors are out there in a thousand blogs, tabloids and newspapers for all to see. Why do I say this?
Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
This does not mean that serious doctrinal errors and practices should not be pointed out by those whom God has charged to do this, rather it means that before you point fingers, go look in the mirror.South Korean Banks, TV Under Cyberatack
May God's grace, mercy and forgiveness be upon all who read and heed this. May God's mercy and love shine upon each of you as you walk with God in love, faith and hope knowing that your faith in Christ has great recompense of reward be you Catholic or Protestant. Christ in all and above all is what should knit us all together in the Holy Spirit.
Walk in that and you will never go wrong.
The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
Looks like the North is behind it.
Iceland Will Recover/The EURO Won't
This article describes just one of the reasons why. They prosecute crime so that it does not continue and repeat itself. The US and Europe won't and that is why each remain in permanent crisis mode. 'Crisis mode' facilitates billions of dollars heading into the major banks in what can be called the largest ongoing swindle in human history . Why? Because the crooks are not going to jail. They are getting bailed out! Iceland is making all the right moves and as I wrote in the Economic Crisis Special Report, I tell you the other reasons why Iceland is heading in the right direction.
Will Cyprus Ever Open Its Banks Again?
I think once they open them up there will be a major run on them. Hence the prolonged closure. They are going to have to find a way to restore confidence after Berlin just destroyed any confidence in the Cypriot banking system.
Call it 'Panzer' economics.
Praise Report: Christian Aid Org Meets Pakistan Assistance Goal
"Last week when we heard that so many had been impacted by the violence, we acted immediately to send in help and assistance. Our goal was to raise $60,000 as quickly as possible so that families displaced by the mob would have the ability to receive desperately needed supplies immediately. We had an amazing response! In just four short days, you gave 56 percent of the necessary funds, and just this morning, a church stepped in and said they wanted to take care of the rest." - Persecution.org

Syria, Rebels Accuse Each Other Of Using Chemicals
Hard to say if this it really happened, but given the reporting so far and the desperation of the Assad regime, I would venture to say that this time, they may really have been used. The US has denied that they were used. But how they can be so quick to say so while others are more cautious. This may be just the US positioning itself to make sure she is not drawn more militarily into the conflict. Such a statement would also make sense if they suspected elements of the US supported rebels were the perpetrators.
With reports of hospitals filling up and a strong smell of Chlorine it doesn't seem credible that the US dismisses this without giving us a more through explanation and investigation and other officials in the know say that it looks like Chemicals were indeed used. Remember, this administration is in full legacy mode and with Obama, the last four years have shown us that his words often bear little resemblance to reality. Truth and time will be the enemy of Obama's legacy.
...and the truth will out and time will pass.
Are the rebels experimenting with crude chemical weapons and this may have been the result of a mishap in their manufacture? I don't know. But the last place to look for the truth is the US government who has done nothing but lie to and spy on its people incessantly and unrepentantly since the day the twin towers came down.

Pope Defends The Weak, Environment
So far this new Pope's is starting off rather interestingly. I hope he means what he says about the poor, the weak and making a Church that really serves the needs of those people Christ cared so much about and spent his time preaching to. Less pomp, ceremony and politics and more genuine Christ-centered Christian ministry.US Debt Monetization: The US Leads The Charge
But like most Catholics, he spends too much time in adoration of Mary. I say this as a non-Cahtholic who has always been troubled by this aspect of Catholicism. Too many put Mary on pretty much the same level as Christ and this is just plain (biblically speaking) heretical. Mind you, not all Catholics are this way but some just seem utterly obsessed with Mary.
But Francis' hands *may* have a few bloodstains on them. When one see's Major newspapers forced to remove his name from the kind of exposŤ found in this piece... that kind of power almost always comes from governments, a group of very wealthy men or the Vatican.
Someone does not want this Pope's past associations with the bloody Junta in Argentina brought up. Public figures with nothing to hide should not shirk from dealing with an issue of such importance, especially given the 'moral' authority any Pope wants to embody.

The past few days seen a lot of strange things these past few days. I hesitate to comment because I have pretty much beat this horse to death on the site. I have done it for years trying to tell people that things are pretty ugly out there.
One reader send me a great link on a strange 'disruption' of the Treasury Auction. The story is from Reuters so I will not quote from it. But will provide a link for you. In short there was a major spike in the number of Treasury trades that did not complete and it caused some disruptions in the market. This does not appear to be a major hiccup, but could signal unusual trading activity designed to do just what happened... disrupt the markets. Remember, this is how we fund our government. No Treasuries get sold, no money for the Government. Is this some new subtle form if economic attack? Remember, the the President, in a fit of strategic blindness made China a primary dealer in Treasuries.
Then there is Cyprus. This is a big problem in Euroland because what the gods of Brussels and Berlin are now trying to accomplish is outright theft of peoples savings accounts. The want to 'tax' about 10% of all savings accounts in a one time swindle... I mean levy. This is done because of the massive bailout Cyprus is asking for and the fact that her banking system is very large for the size of her economy. Read-between-the-lines? There is a lot of hot and criminal money in Cyprus and the EU is trying to get Russian gangsters to foot the bill. Putin is pissed and Putin is the kind of guy who if angered enough will turn the energy spigot to the 'off' position for Europe and play hardball. 'Winter ain't over yet Angie baby..., I can still make your people shiver...Dimitri, get ready to shut it down...
But the levy is very unfair to ordinary Cypriots and retiree's because they will get hit the hardest. Hitting savings like that.. its really dumb because now, people will never trust their money with the banks, not when they know it can be stolen by Brussels. People are taking their money out in droves. So I would look for quiet bank runs (runs that will happen but will not be reported or downplayed in western propaganda organs) to hit all over Europe because of this mentally retarded move. I say mentally retarded... giving the ECB and Merkel the benefit of the doubt. But if the truth be told, I think the chaos this move will bring in is just what some want. They want the instability and chaos that will come when no one trusts the old Euro and the banks anymore and start pulling their money out. When that happens they will spring their new currency on Europe, all (and already) printed in Berlin and controlled solely by what can only be called the New Reich. Go back and study the past and the future can be better understood under the demonic light of the swastika. This whole swindle is being directed out of Berlin.
The banks in Cyprus are closed. The thing of it is, that no matter what they do now, people are going to take their money out.
This is not a joke, game or theory. Something evil is heading right for the heart of Europe.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall throughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grapegatherer into the baskets. To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days. And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.
For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
The nation is in deep trouble and we are suffering, as I said in one of my recent updates, from a crisis of leadership. But more importantly we are suffering from a crisis of a spiritual nature. One that our leaders will never acknowledge. Why not? To do so is political suicide and that tells you the spiritual state of the people of America. While there are millions of nominal Christians, there are not many real Christians. A lot of people put on a fake front and pretend to be holy but not many are truly walking close with Christ. A lot of talk and fakery; little real faith and humble obedience and love is almost non-existent in many of our Churches.... well perhaps the love of money is present, but that is about all.
That's why the nation is on the hot rails to hell. Look at what the Lord said back then, 'get back on the old paths, the good ways'. The people were having none of it. Jerusalem fell and lot of folks were killed and her aristocracy were slaughtered.
God was not playing games then and I can assure you, he isn't now.
So let us all be sure we are walking in his will, not in 'holy hypocrisy' but humble faith. Do that and God will stand with you in the hour of trial that shall come upon the whole earth.
...and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
May God's grace and peace through Christ Jesus be upon all who read and heed this message.
Was the Pope a government informant during Argentina's era of the 'disappeared'? Traitor priests were not uncommon in those days.
The Vatican denies this. The charges are probably specious, but actions in those days... it will be impossible to know what 'compromises' he made with the fascist regime...supported by the US. More here.
US Medical Firms Under Chinese Cyberattack
A very interesting read and runs counter to some websites claims that the fears are overblown. They aren't; some folks don't know any better than to lambaste any official announcement and others are paid to do just that.
Who Is Behind India's Mass Sterilization Camps?
Yes, you read that right, sterilization camps and as the fiscal year ends, India's butchers will have be in a rush to make their sterilization quota's.
Brothers, there is a great evil here. But there is much evil in the medical sciences today. They are really messing with the building blocks of life. Mostly because they want to build a new race of beings who are perfect, but the devil has his own reasons. You have heard about designer babies? That is the future these men want to create, a race of Supermen a track someone else tried to do some time ago. It was called the Lebensborn program. What happens to those who do not pass 'genetic muster'. Well... what is happening in India?
Look at that they are doing in the US. Where are the abortion clinics placed? In low income, racial minority neighborhoods. None of this is coincidence. None of this can be explained away as mistakes and mishaps. There is money and power behind it.
With new scientific methods of genetic research, it will be possible to design a child with all the characteristics that Hitler wanted in his SS, but the racially inferior must not be allowed to procreate, again this comes right out of Nazi Germany.They had the same policies.
As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of Man. So said Christ when talking about his second coming. During that time strange things were going on with the race of mankind and its reproductive ability. This is an issue I have talked about before. You can read a prophecy about this here you may find most interesting.
This is a very important realm and one that every true believer needs to get in prayerful agreement with the Holy Spirit about this because, if they don't, great deception may result for the things we will witness in the days ahead will be most disturbing and challenge everyones foundational belief systems.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.The false Christ, shall be have all the power of these scientific wonders at his disposal, so be forewarned. Many shall see these things and lose their faith, stumble and fall away. So be prepared. A frontal assault will soon begin against the Son's of Adam, the only bloodline who has the opportunity to obtain God's salvation, through Christ Jesus. We are the only ones eligible and that is why the devil hates us so.
Let brotherly love continue.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:
for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Have you ever been visited by an angel? Chances are if you had, you probably did not even know it, hence the word 'unawares'. Notice the two subjects - 'angels unawares' and 'hospitality' are linked in this verse. Me? I think that if you have really walked with God any length of time you probably came across one and did not even have know it.
And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. And Elisha said unto them, This is not the way, neither is this the city: follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom ye seek. But he led them to Samaria. And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria. And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them? And he answered, Thou shalt not smite them: wouldest thou smite those whom thou hast taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master. And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria came no more into the land of Israel.
Fear not! Said the prophet Elisha, there were more with them than against them. Here is one of the examples of God's angelic servants carrying out the Divine will; one of those missions was and is protecting God's people. Elijah's servant didn't know what to do when he heard about the Syrian army's approach, but Elisha knew that God was with them and he asked the Lord to show his young servant the whole battlefield situation. God opened up his eyes and he saw the spiritual side of things. These are things that are hidden from the natural eye. Elijah's anointing gave him the ability to pray so that others could see the situation as it really stood and not just what the naked eye saw. I ask all of you to notice that even though Elisha could have had the Syrian host all slain (for the Lord had blinded them) he was merciful and treated them with kindness. Elisha was a man of God and thus his job was not to be an arm of the Army, but be a witness for God. In this one act, Elisha showed God's mercy.
Brothers, I know many of you are worried. Some of you are going to get hit in sequestration, others of you are concerned about your jobs. Some of you, your finances. God is able to meet your every need. He has a host of Angels who can do wondrous things if we put our faith in God and do the things that he commands us. But we have to do both; believe (have faith, not just mental belief) and obey.
Do you want God's protection in these times especially in the area of finances? Get before the Lord before you make major purchases. I think I have said that a few times on this site. Why? Because you do not know what a day may bring forth. You may be sitting 'high on the hog' today and go to work tomorrow and get a pink slip. Don't put your trust in work, but in God's provision. That does not mean you will always be living as you are now. What that means is that you must adjust to what he provides. Some of you are wasteful; a few of you very wasteful and God may be pointing out your waste in a time of financial difficulty. I do not wan to harp on Finances but I know some of you have written me and are not doing very well. Like I said, I know some of you have been hit with...
This is a mess and the only reason why I bring this up now is to let all of you know that this is a most serious issue. In fact it's monumntal and what these cuts have done is expose a lot of waste and unaccounted for money in the government. Waste and very poor and even criminal accounting is throughout the government. Some agencies are 'accounting' basket cases. They literally (no exageration) do not know how much money they have spend so far this fiscal year. This is very serious because they don't know what or where to cut because they don't know what they have already spent. Yes, dear readers it really is that bad.
I will be talking more about this issue in the next major update (hopefully up early next week) but today I just want to focus on Unemployment benefits. They don't know how much they have already spent so they don't know how much or when to cut. The situation there is not atypical of what is happening across government. They have not properly accounted for the money they have already been given? Why not? One of the reasons is that there was always an incentive to spend right up to your budgetary limit. If you didn't, you would get your budget slashed the following year. Keep this in mind, while many agencies are choosing to furlough employees a few days a month, sequestration is going to put a lot of contractors out of a job and guess where the first place they will be heading? That's right... the unemployment office to get their benefits. I don't think they have the money to last them through the end of the fiscal year... they might... who knows?... they sure don't their accounting is a mess.
They only places who seem to have their accounting act together is Justice and Treasury. The rest... folks I can only say that some of these agencies may run out of money long before October because they have not been keeping tabs of their expenditures. No one knows...
My point here with this convoluted example is this - Budget cuts will expose waste and bad accounting practices. Let all of you begin to really get before God about YOUR finances. Why? I am going to drop a 'bomb' on you. We are looking at bigger cuts in government in the medium term. This year was 10% well... look for cuts of over 20% in the not too distant future.
We will talk a little more about all of this in the next pdf update, in the meantime. Know that God has ways of looking out for his people and has Angels specifically charged with taking care of the needs of God's people.
Have faith in God's abundance of both provision and mercy but do your part which is to trust and obey.
So what's to become of us if the GOP and the Democrats cannot meet half way? I shudder the think about it. It will get really ugly and right now, there is no compromise coming from the GOP side. The President has signaled his willingness to but the GOP is stil stuck in the 3 year old playpen throwing their typical temper tantrum. They feel thay can successfully hold the nation hostage on behalf of FOREIGN interests. I want to stress this, that many in the GOP have been successfully subverted by the FOREIGN interests who have spread millions around the campaign trail last election cycle. I want to stress also that many of America's most prestigious and well known Business groups and forums and even largest corporations have as well. Insiders have relayed stories of blackmail and even murder undertaken by FOREIGN interests to subvert these very powerful groups who are now using their enormous lobbying power againsttheir own country and in favor of FOREIGN interests. In whose interest is it when we cannot sail our Naval ships because the fuel contracts got canceled? In whose interest is it that our fighter pilots cannot train because they just got their flying hours slashed to reduce maintenance costs? In whose interest is it when unemployment, Medicare and other social benefits get slashed leading to great social discontent even internal social and political instability? What FOREIGN interest would want to see that happen? Someone needs to get to steppin' and deal with this element of treason that lurks in Congress and the Senate.
My point is not to say that rhetorically the GOP does not have some points in their arguments, they do. My point is that certain elements of the GOP and its funding apparatus have been subverted by FOREIGN interests. What needs to happen now is what I think the President is loath to do because it is fraught with all kinds of political risks. What is that? Start playing 'brown envelope' politics. Not long ago, the President was forced to use this method with one cantankerous old racist Senator who would not budge on his position. Well, one of Obama's henchman acquired a very interesting video of this distinguished Senator with a very young girl having sex in a Las Vegas Hotel room. The Senator was called and presented the evidence and was told to start negotiating or the video would be sent to Fox News in time for the evening news. The Senator, I am told hemmed and hawed and then was asked the question... "you sure she's 18? She doesn't look like it to me, maybe Justice needs to look into this one....?"
The Senators tone and willingness to talk changed significantly. Is this what is needed now? Probably. Will the President go there? I am not so sure he will. He can if he really needs to but I think Obama would much rather take a more legally and morally acceptable road than just whipping out Brown Envelopes as a political tactic. Which leads us to something I read yesterday and was trying to piece together the why's of.
US To Let Spy Agencies Scour Citizens Finances
I realize that many have castigated the idea and I admit, I don't like it much myself. But if you want to find out which politicians and power brokers are in bed with FOREIGN interests....? You want to see who got a giant payment from overseas just before they torpedoes a budget agreement? This is how you do it. You "smoke 'em out"; call them into and let them know that if they resign quietly, there will be no treason charges... "you have 72 hours to inform your family and staff, otherwise.... Eric, hand them the charge sheet..."
After the cursory silence the traitor-Congressman would then see the light and retire.
Listen, if something drastic is not done soon, you are going to see some massive cuts coming, cuts that could really undermine America's ability to say, react to a invasion of South Korea by the North, reduce our Presence in the Straits of Hormuz. You will see wait times at airports go from an hour to three... on a good day as the Machines that scan passengers have their maintenance contracts cut... as they already have as of 1 March. You'll see more air accidents, because there are less Air Traffic controllers. You'll see students who are in their 3rd year of college unable to complete because the Student Loan program is financially strained.
Take your pick, do what you have been doing and watch the nation be held hostage to FOREIGN interests who have captured key parts of our legislative branch or take off the gloves and and let them know... "You want Partisanship... I'll show you partisanship; you want Ghetto, I can do Ghetto...," and begin using some of those terrorist and money laundering laws on these guys. Make an example of one of them first before you even think about calling them in to talk, that way when they do sit down for a pow-wow, they know you are not bluffing. "You want to join senator X in that isolation cell we have for him? Yes, we thought it best lest he spill some information he may or may not posses that I have deemed 'critical to the national security', by the power invested in me as President. It's kind of sad.... I hear he talks to himself these days as he walks back and forth in his 5 by 8 cell, 10 hours a day. He's only got 20 more years to serve..."
What needs to be understood is that the GOP is never going to compromise until they are forced to. That will only happen when they you hit them at home where it hurts. Otherwise as long as they have their Mercedes Benz health care plans, lifetime retirement after just a couple of years of service, house barber shop and all the other perks and amenities that go with that high rank, they are never going to do anything except make patriotic noises for the FOX news camera's and take money from FOREIGN interests to do their bidding.
Look at it this way, they have not done their jobs, one of the most important jobs of Congress is to pass a budget. They haven't done it for years now.. in October it will be half-a-decade running and no budget. The nation was able to pass a budget during the Civil war, why can't they do it now?

There are traitors in our midst, men and women who want to hold the nation hostage. I want to say this now such as these are not legislators, they are traitors. Let me ask you this - If you did not do your job for four years, what do you think would happen to you? That's right, you'd be on a fast ship to the poor house. This only goes to illustrate the dysfunctional nature of our political system. The people refused to hold their leaders accountable so now, Lady Pain is about to make her excruciating entrance into America. The howls of torment will soon follow as she cracks her whip over the profligate and foolish nation as her face flushes with pleasure every time she hears the screams of torment that results from her well practiced whip.
The person who I feel the most for these days? Its John Boenner. He's been demonized but of all the voices in Washington he's probably the most reasonable. Sure, the party has forced him to make those typical GOP statements on no taxes, but the Speaker has really done all he could to reach out to get things done. He really has and taken enormous risk in doing so. The problem is two fold; its is what I will call the 5 year old wing and the traitor wing of his own party. How bad is it? The speaker has been subject to many death threats coming from his own party and has had his protection detail increased because of them. The speaker comes from a humble background, has blue collar roots and is hardly the instrument of evil so many have made of him. He has tried to steer the party in the right direction. Indeed at one Party retreat he characterized his own party as one of a bunch of old white racists who are out of touch. He wasn't the only one who had choice words for where the party is heading after its election defeat. The GOP has some deep troubles and the leaders know it. Right now they really have no policy framework from which to work from that they can all agree on, so their fall back position is... you guessed it...'NO'.
I know many of you wonder how I can be so tough and yet maintain a strong Christian witness. Well I know that God hates injustice, waste and is not big on stupidity either. America has not done right. If I were talking about entrapping people or setting them up, that would be very wrong. But here, we are talking about exposing some of the works of darkness that are perpetrated by some of our leaders, many of whom have successfully deceived a very large swath of Christians that they are on their side, when their heart, soul and bank accounts are with those who are persecuting Christians in mass and have set their sites and destroying America and all she once stood for.
So I have no truck with traitors, we have coddled them too long and if this President is serious about a real legacy and fixing what is wrong and keeping America solvent, he is just going to have to take off the gloves and learn to play 'street ball' with the GOP. He's got the power, he uses it or he loses it and hands over the national policy to those whose limited vocabulary consistently reflects a negative response to any reasonable question or solution. The party of NO will lead us into a nation of NO...

Prayer Request For Iranian Believers
Last week we requested prayer for a number of believers in Iran, including a group of believers from Muslim backgrounds (BMBs) facing a court hearing on Sunday 10th March.
The hearing took place as scheduled, but no verdict was reached. No schedule has been given for further hearings. Recall that they face charges relating to national security, public order and evangelism.
Five who had remained detained since the arrests in October 2012 were offered bail, but at an extortionate rate (the equivalent of $200,000 for one and $80,000 for the other four). The charges also apply to four others, arrested with the others but released on lesser bail within a month of the arrests. Of these four, two were also present at the hearing; they remain free, as do the two others (one of whom was unable to attend because of ill health).
Christians supporting these believers request our prayers that:
a. The believers who remain detained, and all other Iranian believers similarly detained for their Christian faith or activities, will know the loving presence and inner peace of Jesus, and His healing touch
b. The families of those detained will know the peace, provision and protection of Jesus
c. All who face ongoing legal proceedings will know the Spirit’s guiding wisdom
d. The charges will be dropped, or these believers will be acquitted, and that those detained will be released soon
e. All officials involved will love mercy, act justly, learn about Jesus and choose to follow Him.

North Korea: Flirting With Conflict
Whatever brinksmanship advantage Pyongyang believes it has is balanced by risks. Military action, even heightened tensions, could damage the North’s already parlous economy, producing unintended consequences for the regime. Following the North's artillery attack against the South in November 2010, war fears among North Koreans leading to food hoarding and financial upset were reported. The economy is not immune to confidence shocks, especially entering a season of depleted food stocks. Food insecurity is worsened by a steep decline in food aid since the December satellite launch. After its disastrous 2009 currency reform, there were reports of dissent and unprecedented official apologies. Tightening sanctions, worsening food insecurity, and bellicose state behaviour could have negative economic effects that could just possibly impact regime stability and predictability. - Crisis Group

So forget about those stats coming out of the government, none of them are reflecting reality. They are reflecting the governments need to keep down the CPI because a lot of benefit payments are dependent on it and when the CPI goes up so do the payments. Their answer to this vexing problem?
Those 'investors' who are cheering the report? Probably just the Fed buying up stock futures to give credence to the lie.
I am not going to use the PC term 'sexual assault' but the real term - rape. In the case cited here, on the surface at least, it looks like the good old boy network of officers stepped in to protect one of its own but others say that this was a classic 'he said', 'she said' case. But also keep in mind that a jury was convinced of the evidence and a Senior military officer threw out the verdict in a very unusual move.
Rape is a growing problem in the military and I do mean growing and it's often a senior officer raping a subordinate because he knows the system will protect him.
Sadly, more and more military officers are little more than scum of the earth walking around with officers insignia, using their positions to steal federal money and rape their troops and losing wars in the process. I say this not to blast those many good officers who honorably serve and lead, but to distinguish between honorable men and women who serve and something, morally speaking, you scrape off the sides of a toilet.
We have lowered standards of recruitment, but the real issue is one that no one really wants to deal with. The basket of apples that we have to pick from for our military here in America are almost all rotten. Our nation is a moral cesspool and no one really wants to acknowledge it. Sodom and Gomorrah? We're it, but we don't like to see ourselves in that light. Remember this, it was only AFTER God removed those who honored him that he lowered the boom on those two iniquitous cities.
Hagel needs to get a handle on these kinds of Morale/Personnel/Leadership issues. They will be more important than the procurement issues we now face with sequestration. There must be a level of trust and respect between officers and subordinates and when those in authority abuse that trust, the command system begins to break down.
And it is breaking down now, the DOD has just done a real good job of keeping it out of the news.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, we must never forget what this facist system did to people, particularly Jews.
My brethren in Christ keep this in mind; the devil hates Christians and Jews and today we can see the hate towards both growing day by day. Nazi-ism was the epitome of satanic government and its ends are always economic exploitation/slavery (theft), mass murder (death) and destructive militarism (destroy). Steal, kill and destroy is always the devils MO (John 10:10). This is how we can identify evil systems. In many parts of the world people are taught from a very early age to hate Jews and in those same places, Christians are treated like 3rd class citizens, barely tolerated and often driven out, burned out, imprisoned or killed.
So let us never forget...

Greetings in the name of Jesus, Prince of Peace
Syrian Christians continue to request our prayers for their country. They note that, in recent months, there have been increasing numbers of attacks on Christians that seem to be religiously motivated.
There have been a spate of reported incidents involving the kidnapping of Christians. One example occurred on 9th February when two priests, Michel Kayyal (Armenian Catholic) and Maher Mahfouz (Greek Orthodox), were kidnapped when travelling by public bus between Damascus and Aleppo. The bus was stopped by armed men belonging to one of the groups fighting the government. The gunmen checked the identity documents of all passengers and only the two priests were taken. A Salesian priest travelling with them was not kidnapped. Negotiations for their release are on-going. Other kidnappings have been reported, especially in al-Hasakah Province where some Christians have demonstrated publicly to protest against this alarming new trend.
There have been a number of assaults on Church buildings and other Christian property. Such attacks are often interpreted as warnings or threats to the Christian communities. One example occurred on 10th February when gunmen vandalised the historic church of Saint Maroun in Barad village, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of Aleppo. - Middle East Concern

The unique situation with Benedict still around coupled with the real reasons for his resignation will make for a most interesting papacy. Benedict was busy during his tenure and lets just say 'has what he needs' to exert 'influence' over any Pope who is deeply involved in the Churches scandals. The reason why one high ranking official is not coming to the conclave is because he got an envelope with lots and lots of pictures in it and was told it would be all over a large London paper if he did not step down. Naturally, he stepped down.
The Vatican full of some evil men doing evil things and this sickened Benedict no end. From here on out he will be watching things very closely and using his 'influence' as needed....
Whole Foods To Begin Labeling GMO''s In 2018
8 March 2013Times And Seasons
It is my hope dear brothers that my work here is not in vain. I hope this site has been a blessing to you and that from it you have a better understanding of the new world we are entering and the 'times and seasons' as relates to God's prophetic timetable. It is my sincere hope that you are better equipped to make your decisions based on God's sure promises in light of his prophetic word. I hope and pray that none of you go to sleep in these most deceptive times.
I am always cautioned when I read the words of our Lord when he talks about his return. When one reads the words of John the Revelator, one gets the impression that the world is sliding into such chaos that ordinary life is impossible. But look at how our Lord phrased it.
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
this passage, we see Christ is warning those who claim to be his, not be
distracted and overtaken with the cares of daily living. All of us know
that they can overwhelm us; taking care of kids, professional
obligations, taking care of finances, homes, errands time with friends.
These can take a lot of time and energy. None of these things are bad
and for many of them, they are obligations that we as Christians must
tend to. Christ is not saying that we should not be doing things
things, but exhorting us that our hearts are not to be overcharged with these things. The word Overcharged is -
uses the word 'weighed down' in addition to the ones above. This is a
big spiritual taboo in that it leads us away from God. We take our
attention off of the things of God and onto the things of this world
and the result? We are caught unawares, we lose track of the times and
seasons and are ensnared rather than delivered in the day of the Lord and are lumped in with the lost. Notice
that Christ said it will come upon the earth as a snare.
This is why there is such a strong exhortation here and elsewhere in scripture to remain awake, to not sleep and to not let the 'song of the Dragon' lull us into spiritual slumber.
shut your eyes
and I will tell you sweet lies
please don't cry
when I blow smoke in your eyes...
There's no Hell
My Preachers Tell
As you change the Channel
There's no sin
That's all spin
And no hell you'll fall in
Shut Your Eyes...
- The Dragon's Lullaby
Don't get lulled to sleep by the Dragon, its very easy to do.
So brothers, I am not going to give you a long deep spiritual article today, just a simple extortion - Don't get weighed down with the cares of daily living, keep your mind clear and focused on God and his risen Son, Jesus Christ and you will do well. Know the word, understand the times and keep on, keepin' on!!

After the mainly Christian South voted to secede from Sudan in January 2011, President Omar Hassan al-Bashir made it clear that the North would become 100% Islamic, with the place of sharia law being strengthened. Christians in the North were fearful about their future there, and their fears are now being realised with what appears to be the systematic destruction of the remaining Christian presence in the North, which is 98% Muslim. Churches are being demolished, Christian institutions closed, Christians arrested, foreign Christian workers deported and literature seized.

The displaced face a mounting humanitarian crisis in the cold Syrian winter as their supplies run short...

Microsofts Windows 8 Disaster
Early last year, I wrote that one day soon after Windows 8 Launched, it was quite possible that Microsoft would do something no one thought could ever happen. What was that? Start operating at a loss. So far, Windows 8 has been a disastrous OS launch with very low adoption rates both on the consumer and corporate sides. The main reason? 8's compulsory 'Metro' interface. It's OK for phones and tablets but horrible for desktops and anyone who actually has to do work on a computer. If all you do is email, send pictures, check the weather, Windows 8 is not an issue. But any kind of multi-tasking is a serious chore and extremely frustrating.China: New Leaders, Same Assertive Foreign Policy
Well there is now an app put out by Stardock that should help some who have been trapped in the Microsoft Vortex of limited choices, software autocracy and exorbitant licensing fees.
I don't use 8 and never will. I had to fight with myself to buy a 7 PC last July and only did because I wanted to avoid MS's attempt at preventing me from using Linux.
China's legislature meets this week to seal a power transfer to new leaders, but don't hold your breath for signs that the new team will ease up on the tough Chinese foreign policy that has ruffled feathers in its neighborhood recently.
As the National People's Congress opened in Beijing, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Fu Ying warned that the country had sent an "important signal" to the region that it would respond "decisively" to provocations on territorial disputes.
That means we can expect Beijing to continue with its "reactive assertiveness" foreign policy tactic. China has perfected this approach in its ongoing maritime disputes in the South and East China Seas.
The approach allows Beijing to use perceived provocations as a chance to change the status quo in its favor -- all the while insisting the other party started the trouble. - International Crisis Group

First off the reader who I gave the pseudonym Wanda Carter got her lab results and the news is very good. A miracle has occurred and that miracle includes lab values that are in the normal range! I can tell she is relieved and overjoyed at the news as she confesses she does not have a lot of fruit to offer up to the Lord and must raise her kids. So give thanks and praise for Wanda's great news. Hallelujah and praise God!!! She sincerely thanks all of you who prayed for her and her plight.
Another reader who I will only use the pseudonym 'Manny' appears to be in serious emotional, spiritual and financial distress and appears to be at the end of their wits. I have already prayed for Manny but hope that all of you will pray as well. Manny has many challenges including a ne'er do well husband, kids to feed and a job that pays next to nothing. Please pray for Manny as the spirit leads.

Is Saudi Arabia Trying To Make Amends With The US?
...and will a new generation of leaders begin to open up the Kingdom's political system?
The death of Hugo Chavez is something that principles in DC probably cheered and maybe even helped along. Given this Presidents penchant for removing leaders he doesn't like using any and all available tools of violence and murder (Libya, Syria are two publicly acknowledged ones) such a scenario is hardly preposterous and Chavez's relative youth and vigor coupled with his strident anti-US positions make his passing more than a little suspicious.
But while everyone is breaking out the Champaign I cannot help but be somewhat saddened by his passing. I never saw him as the quintessential devil Washington's NeoCons and their foreign policy puppet, Barak Obama saw him as. He was indeed controversial and rather flamboyant... and his speech before the UN when Bush was President will be forever etched in the History books. You will note the contempt the US showed him by the empty US chair during this speech. Watch the speech and you will know why I think that Chavez' name almost certainly went on an assassination list within hours of giving that speech.
What was Washington's real problem with the democratically elected Chavez? I might add multiple times elected Chavez? Their real problem with him was that he put the interests of the people of Venezuela before the hegemonic interests of the US and its mega corporations. Not only that, but he had the gaul to begin to cooperate with the new rising block of economic powers that are now rising in the world. These factors and his expropriation of oil assets in his nation was probably one of the final straws that led to his untimely and rather suspicious downfall.
Chavez worked hard to better the lives of poor Venezuelans and his actions helped relieve a lot of suffering, though not unlike the revolution in Cuba, many of his reforms were not without some major failures. What I don't want to do here is to beatify Chavez. But unlike the American MSM, whose relationship is symbiotic with the US government and its national security policy/establishment, I am not going to demonize him either. The job of the MSM is merely to drum up support for actions the government has already decided to take. Any leader who genuinely attempts to empower working class people and the poor has always found the American government as its most violently ardent foe.
In 1954, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), which had been created just a few years earlier, conducted its first covert operation in Latin America. Agents took control of the Guatemalan media, broke down the country’s economy, trained mercenaries, organized bombings, and spread destructive rumors and fear throughout the country. The psychological warfare was effective: the CIA frightened the population into submission and the military was too frightened to defend the President. Arbenz [who empowered working people - .Ed] was overthrown and a military junta close to Washington’s interests was put in his place. - Upsidedown World
What you just read was not atypical of America's actions in the region that has been going on for decades. Anytime the profits of highly exploitative US corporations were threatened, the CIA was sent in to commit a few massacres, assassinations and help make a few death squads to help keep the 'darkies' in their place.
Chavez' rise was in answer to a long history of US crime in the region and while Chavez has been known to cavort with some rather unsavory characters, I challenge anyone to name a President who has not had dealings with even worse men... invited right into the Oval office to cut a criminal deal or obtain some illegal campaign cash. Others have pointed to Chavez' alleged ties to Drug Traffickers. Who do you think is trying to destabilize Russia with drugs today... the man in the moon? The secret conspiracy of left handed Eskimo's?
I for one am sorry to see Chavez go. Latin America needs leaders who can steer their nations out of the patterns of poverty enforced by the American foreign policy establishment that many still experience while at the same time not falling prey to hostile/malevolent outside interests (like the US, China or even Iran) in the process. Given the dark side of all of these nations and their actions in the past, to find such a leader is going to be very difficult. Keeping him alive long enough to finish his first year in office will be even harder.
Murder and bloodshed will not go unanswered, especially when it is targeted at the poor. My sense brothers is that the time for delay is ending; there has been enough of delay and holding back and God is rapidly reaching his tolerance point, so look for things to pick up speed...
Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;
The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots. The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses: Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock. And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee?
When Israel also sinned against the Lord with perpetual sinning the Lord also spoke against her. Note that in each instance the Lord was particularly incensed with the lies that accompanied each nations catalog of serial murders. The pattern of Judgment is the same weather it be Nineveh, Ancient Babylon or End Time Babylon. When this most powerful spiritual stronghold makes its seat in a city/nation and takes over, the pattern is always the same. This is a Luciferian stronghold. Let the reader study Ezekiel Chapter 28, versus 12 forward and you will see the description can only fit one entity. Note its beauty (well favored) and its love of commerce and merchandise.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great. Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned. Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot, and may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed. She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire. In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD.
Does America really think she can continue to get away with her crimes? Has not God written a prognostication of our future in our budgets? Is he not showing us all, not just with prophets, pastors and internet writers but in the hard realities that we as a nation are on the wrong course and that he will no longer ignore the cries of America's growing list of victims?
Is There Any Hope?
I know the nation is capable of doing better and to his credit, I think the President on some level does too. The real question is will we? Will we continue on with our violent arrogance spouting threats and lies to everyone who gets in the way of America's corporations and profits or will we begin to acknowledge that the world is big enough for all of us and that we cannot sit back and empower the wicked to bolster a corporate balance sheet, while the rivers flow with the blood of God's holy people, the poor man and those who speak out against her evils.
I also think that a large body of Americans, if they really knew some of the dirt we have been doing would be outraged at it. I think even now we are seeing more and more people asking pointed questions about why so many people hate us. Any change is going to have to come from the people. Washington is broken. A genuine revival of America's founding Christian principles and a moral awakening must transpire. This, I think is not as difficult as some think, but it's just going to take people beginning to use their power to make changes in their prayers, their votes, their buying patters and doing without some things we like in order to keep from funding those who want to destroy us.
When a soldier goes onto the battlefield, he knows he must make sacrifices, he cannot take his 50 inch TV with him or his BMW, he must learn to do without. He cannot take his meals from the enemies kitchen or trust the rounds of ammo passed on by an enemy commander. The same must be said of Americans who are paying alot of money on things that are undermining America. Get before the Lord, he will show you what the are to do. Each of us must decide as individuals that we can do our part however small, to cause a sea change in America. Just 5% in an election is enough to sway it one way or the other. And a 10% drop in revenues is enough to make a corporations sit up and take notice.
You can make a difference, you just have to decide you want to.
Even the poor, the downtrodden and working people have a right to live here on earth and this is something that America's leaders say with their mouths, while their hands are stained with the blood of the same. We can and must do better if we as a nation are to survive.

"The Bible" Takes TV By Storm
The miniseries 'The Bible' was the most watched show on TV. It was produced by the History Channel, not one of the old school big networks. This story is interesting on many fronts as described in this piece. What I find interesting is that despite many years of Christ bashing we have seen in Media, comedy, movies and TV Americans by the millions watched this miniseries instead of the usual trash-TV that caused folks like me to cut the cable back in 2011.Will The Government Shut Down This Month?
I think what this piece misses is that despite the drone of anti-Christian propaganda we have gotten from a myriad of TV shows, movies and comedy folks, millions are still very interested in the Bible and Christ's message. My take is that key parts of Hollywood in particular and the entertainment industry in general have been unsuccessful in their propaganda efforts. No only that, but I think it shows that they are pretty far out of touch with a lot of Americans, many of whom are toying with what I did back in 2011... cutting feed to all that junk, propaganda, porn and vice they pay $100+ a month for.
My solution has been Roku and for me it works just fine.

This is a good move and one that may seem trivial, but I assure you is not, especially as more and more people use the internet to get things done and use their phones to access the net. Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I talked about the trends with these new technology corporations to tether their customers? Once you buy a product there is a ton of legalese that prevents you from doing just about anything and forces you to accept a wide range of spyinng activity in the fine print as well as preventing you from choosing a competitor who may offer services you want and can't get with a TeleCom 'Tether U Forever' Behemoth? Most folks don't know what they are signing away when they click that 'I accept' button.
One of the real problems with this in my view (and others have talked about this as well) is that Innovation in places like Silicon Valley is now taking a back seat to these new legal mechanisms to earn revenue. It is increasingly becoming less profitable to innovate as opposed to creating new tethering scams and 'partnerships' that often include surreptitious 'data rape' terms from their new victims...oops... I mean customers. So this is a really good first step in the right direction. Markets thrive with real competition and Federal Regulations should not be set up to undermine legitimate competition between carriers.

Texans Work To Slow Depletion of Key US Aquifier
This is where much of America's water comes from and it is being depleted at an alarming rate. farmers are already feeling it. The water from it irrigates over 15 million acres of cropland.
The High Plains aquifer, underlying almost 112 million acres in the central United States, is one of the largest aquifers in the Nation. It is the primary water supply for drinking water, irrigation, animal production, and industry in the region. Expansion of irrigated agriculture throughout the past 60 years has helped make the High Plains one of the most productive agricultural regions in the Nation. Extensive withdrawals of groundwater for irrigation have caused water-level declines in many parts of the aquifer and increased concerns about the long-term sustainability of the aquifer...
...For 2000 through 2009, the average annual total estimated groundwater pumpage volume from two soil-water-balance models ranged from 8.7 to 16.2 million acre-ft. Average annual irrigation application rates for the High Plains ranged from 8.4 to 16.2 inches per year. The USGS Water-Use Program published estimated total annual pumpage from the High Plains aquifer for 2000 and 2005. Those volumes were greater than those estimated from the two soil-water-balance models.
Total groundwater in storage in the High Plains aquifer was
estimated as 3,173 million acre-ft prior to groundwater development and
2,907 million acre-ft in 2007. The average annual decrease of
groundwater in storage between 2000 and 2007 was 10 million acre-ft per
year. - USGS

4 March 2013
We have heard massive amounts of information about the coming Austerity. It's here and while most people have yet to feel its effects, they will be felt by large portions of the American economy. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of jobs will ultimately be effected and the most difficult part of it is, that even when all of the pain is felt, a new round of probably even deeper cuts will follow. No one really gets this. No one wants to get it, especially those who often work inside the government. Somehow, in the backs of their minds they think the debt party can go on forever and that they never really have to be repaid in economically real ways. There will be no debt Jubilee here, the bills are now due and the corks now must go back on the champagne bottles and the keg's must go back to the brewery because Mr. Debt has already had the 'last call' at his debtors party.
What America is experiencing is indeed a major turning point in its economic history. What we will experience over the next decade will in many ways be worse than the great depression. It will be longer and more drawn out and ultimately more painful. This is because America's leaders are not going to do what is best for America, but what is best in their very narrow interests and those interests who have attached themselves firmly onto the Federal trough. While our leaders and Federally paid 'consultants' are telling us all about these new jobs and the wait time being reduced, what they do not tell you is that the pay for these new jobs is usually considerably less than the jobs that were existent four years ago, and many of those jobs are part time with no benefits. So let them blow smoke in your eyes of you wish, the truth is something our leaders want to hide behind a thin veneer of upbeat economic numbers that are by and large, fraudulently arrived at and loudly repeated on the airwaves. You want lies? Then listen to the government and the mainstream financial press. You want truth? You are going to have to really dig for it.
I have talked about this a long time so today, I am not going to repeat myself. But what I will say is that what we are seeing is in fact the slow steady hand of God showing America that she is on the wrong track. I do not think it any kind of coincidence that on the final days before sequestration was to hit, the President went be for the Supreme Court of the land and lobbied in favor of the sin of Sodomy and to continue the efforts of this lobby to make its legal acceptance the law of the land. The administration was not party to the suit, yet interdicted itself into a matter that frankly has no bearing on the Federal government, except to open up its empty coffers to yet more people seeking 'entitlements' based upon centuries long forbidden sexual perversions. We see the sin and we see the results of it. God is slowly removing his hand of blessing from America. The economic blessings we once enjoyed are going to be taken from us. You don't have to believe me, the only thing you have to do is learn how to count... the old fashioned way. Look at our debts, look at the insane way we are paying for our government today, look at our interest payments, look at our medical costs, the rising number of retiree's and do the math. It isn't rocket science or quantum physics. The Lord is moving against this nation and its increasingly reprobate ways. He has delayed long enough and now slowly but surely the nation is going to feel the pain of her sinfulness.
While the economic pain is going to be real, expect it to only increase as the years go on. Many of you have already felt it, many of you have just begin to. I know... I read your emails. My advise to all who love the Lord is to get before him and ask him how you can prepare. Don't panic, but do not cease to seek his face on this. Don't get caught unawares and with your proverbial britches down. Prepare for difficulties ahead but ask God to guide you through them and he will. Don't be stubborn and don't spend money unnecessarily. That will only bring in want. Use your head and get before the Lord! Don't make a major financial mistake by being hard headed, short-sighted or otherwise foolish. Know this, things are not always going to be like they are. Change is coming and it's going to mean less for ordinary people who must work for a living. For many, perhaps most, its going to mean very much less.
As God begins to deal with this secular society that increasingly ignores God, he is dealing with her arrogance and the twin pillars of that arrogance, her economic and military power (which is bearing a very large amount of the cuts and will noticeably effect the DOD's readiness). This is what all of us who know our God can expect; God to begin to deal more clearly, forceful and painfully with a wayward and increasingly rebellious nation. When God gives a commandment our nation increasingly says 'No' God.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Many of us know this verse and the translators here did a good job here in rendering the verse. But in the original text, the verse actually reads “The fool hath said in his heart, no God.” While certainly the thought behind the psalmist was to convey the thinking of those who did not consider God or did not believe in his providence, another way to look at this verse is in the sense of defiance.
“The nabal has said no to God” is one way this could be liberally rendered. A Nabal (H5036 - Strongs) is one of the worst kinds of 'fools' in the Bible, it is also rendered 'vile person' (Isa 32:5-6) and his ways are in direct opposition to God's. In fact, there was a man in the book of Samuel whose name was Nabal (1Sam 25:3). The word is not a good one and any person, group or nation who puts himself in this category is heading for really big trouble with God.
But increasingly, this is what we are seeing in America; we have become a nation that does not listen to wise words from men of God, but to the loudest advertisement, media personality, trends in society and money in their personal accounts and have refused to heed God but rather, give heed to these and other deceitful spirits. This is true when it comes to the whole radical gay agenda. Not only do they want to defile themselves before God and rebel against him, they want to drag the whole nation down this black hole of perversions with them. Their whole tenor is one that is attacking Christians and the Churches (sometimes literally) and we saw this in California when they had the Gay marriage amendment on the ballot. The whole message of this lobby was and still is, "No, God. No, we won't listen or obey, our genitals will be our guide". Now that they have successfully bribed the President with millions in campaign donations, his message now resonates similarly...'No God'; Sin is good' and soon, if I read my Hollywood right, it will be 'Christians who must economically subsidize unholy unions' or pay a heavy price for not endorsing evil. Hollywood and the President have given ear to deceitful spirits who mean America no good, but rather have as their primary goal removing God's longstanding protection and blessings from our nation. Their plan is operating with excellent results... in a satanic sort of way.
All of this brings us right back around to Austerity. Despite the MSM's political, economic and spiritual inability to put two and two together and get that forbidden 'four', the reality is that Austerity is hitting the nation at a most spiritually interesting time. A time when men and women of God have been crying out about America's direction and her collision course with God. The nation has largely ignored those calls. But America's austerity (sequestration, if you will) has only just begun. The twin pillars of her arrogance are being struck by inept leadership whose policies no longer consider the good of the nation, but follow the good of their principle bribers. This is the real reason why the nation is in an economic funk. God has given the people of America the leaders they so richly deserve - A perfect reflection of their own profligacy: vain, corrupt, superficial, greedy and stubbornly unwilling to make sacrifices today in order to preserve their tomorrows. In America you cannot get elected by telling the people of the sacrifices that are needed to fix America, you get elected by telling Americans that no sacrifice is needed and that you have a 'secret plan' to fix our fiscal mess. In short, Americans love their liars and take their truth tellers out back and beat them senseless and they barely escape with their lives... many don't.
As long as the purveyors of disinformation rule the roost in America's most widely disseminated information managers and the people are feed a steady diet of half truths, lies and emotionalized tidbits of disinformation and make their voting decisions on it, we will remain on the road to ruin and in the almighty God's crosshairs of judgment. In short, lies and liars rule the roost and truth and reality are simply not welcome on your mainline news shows, talk shows or newspapers.
So the nation has been given over to falsehoods and more and more real truth, even some of the latest bedrocks of America law are now 'secret'; they are classified and now if you tell the truth, you can be sent to prison for a very long time. What our current classification system is doing is making truth telling a crime that can be prosecuted in our newly established national security secret courts. Evil systems have always thrived on secrecy and darkness and that is where America is today. Most Americans cannot conceptualize these things. Why not? Because for years our leaders both in government and in business have worked together in secret to obfuscate key data and facts from the people in order to allow them to spin political debate in ways that benefits them. In short, liars have been given sway over America's political and economic debate and the nation has gone to the spiritual dogs.
What does this mean?
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
America has long prided herself on her military strength. Let us emphasize the word 'pride' because the real word here, especially since the late 20th century is more akin to arrogance. We have become a law unto ourselves by virtue of the twin pillars of economic and military might. It is so pronounced that our policy makers have created new terminology for it. They call it 'American Exceptionalism'. It merely says, in a nutshell, America is not bound by the laws of man or God and there is something special, almost 'divine' about America. We are above the law and the rules that everyone else must play by - that is American Exceptionalism in a twenty-first century nutshell. This doctrine is the wellspring of American foreign policy, violence and even crime. She does not feel the rules apply to her, not even the rules she creates. One need only go back and remember the whole, kidnapping and torture scandal to see just what I mean.
So America must slowly go into the crucible of her own making. The Lord does not have to do much here for America to suffer tremendously; the only thing he must do is what we as a nation have demanded of him now for decades and that is to stay out of our affairs. So as the ship of state heads directly for the shoals of political and economic destruction, the nation defiantly shouts "No God...no we won't honor or respect you!". So let us get something straight here, up until now, this is far less a murder than it is national suicide. But the scriptures clearly indicate that as America continues her spiritual decent and engages in greater and greater abominations, God will step in and do what some always complain about when they see evil. “Why doesn't God do something?"; this is what we hear constantly from people who constantly commit evils and then shake their fist at God when they have to lay in the bed they made for themselves. He will, right now he is waiting for people to repent but rest most assured that God will in his (not our) timing, 'do something'.
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Dear readers, the extent of wickedness in this nation and even and especially in her rulers is very great. The evil one has been most adept at hiding the wickedness of the national leadership, but it is extreme; hookers (gay and straight), very young sexual partners, threesomes, cocaine parties orgies, bribery, swindles, 'skimming' of financial transactions; this is what is happening with many of YOUR elected representatives... right now... though many Americans just don't care... they are often doing the same things.
But let us never get sanctimonious and self-righteous, but remember from which we have fallen and be merciful to those who wish to do right and may not have the strength. Let us show mercy even as God is merciful but also know that the open defiance this nation is showing to God is a matter of the utmost seriousness and that this is not a matter of weakness. Rather it is one of rebellion. Let us show all that God loves man and understands that we are but flesh and bones and far from perfect.
But know dear brothers that God sees these things and has marked those who love him and reject these things and placed their names into his book of remembrance.
Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Brothers, in closing let me say that each of us just needs to stay calm, make no major decisions without God's express say so. Be wise as serpents and as harmless as doves as your Lord commanded you (Matt 10:16), fear not, fret not, but nevertheless be cautious - for your adversary the devil is about, and he is very good and goading people into sin, rebellion and major mistakes that lead us out of God's will and into faithlessness. Be wise and give the devil a little credit, he has been at this thing for over 6000 years and knows what buttons to push to lead you astray. Never underestimate him! Knowing this and keeping your eyes on Christ will surely help you to resist his attempts to misdirect, misinform and otherwise deceive you.
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
- Be Thou My Vision
(written sometime in the 6th century)
Nazi Death Camp System Twice As Large As Previously Thought
This is not some obscure academic here, but the work of the US Holocaust Museum based here in Washington DC. How many so far counted? Over 40,000 facilities.
Remember this, these camps many of them anyway, were slave labor camps. It became profitable to enslave millions and the major German industrial combines (like IG Farben) got to use the labor. It was the ultimate Public Private partnership. This was a system of industrial scale exploitation and murder run by political leaders and corporations for profit and often done in deep, deep secrecy... all under the guiding hand of Lucifer.
And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
Are you one of those who forgets about God when things are going well? Have you let prosperity blind you as to where all of your blessings come from? Turn your heart to God and remind him of your love and he shall be constant to you in good times and bad. Let righteousness, praise and thanksgiving mark your days and always look to the Lord, your Rock for both direction and provision. Do this and you shall never moved.
28 February 2013
How many of you can see that we are all in a serious period of transition all over the planet, EU, China, the US, the Church and even the environment.
We have seen a new leader in China come in who is very serious about rooting out corruption. While we have not seen much about this in newspapers, be assured, this issue has not gone away and will not go away. Xi realizes that if China is to really have a bright future, the cancer of graft and corruption must be dealt with. But today he is incredibly frustrated with the results of his efforts thus far (not unlike Pope Benedict). However, look for things to take a much firmer and decisive turn as we move through fall. This problem is exceptionally serious and he knows that if it is not dealt with, China will no longer be governable from the center. What do I think could happen? I will give you my two cents.
Do you understand what a purge is? A political purge is when you get rid of those who who have shown a pattern of disloyalty to the system in place. China had it during its cultural revolution and Russia had it under Stalin. In it people were killed, often indiscriminately by the powers that be for their political beleifs. We are not talking about a few hundred, but thousands are rounded up, sent to labor camps or are dispatched with a bullet to the head.
It is my view that if the new Chinese leader is not able to get more cooperation from regional and business leaders that some kind of purge is coming. I think it likely that the kinds of tools and methodology that have been used against internal 'dissidents' will soon be turned on corrupt business interests as well as local and regional politicians in a way that at first may seen insignificant, but will take on a life of its own as the months and years pass. What this will do, is to factionalize China politically, if it is not done with the utmost care. But this is probably a risk that Chinese leaders will feel must be taken before the corruption virus becomes irreversible. Watson's view? Soon the prisons will fill and the blood will flow as China attempts to root out corruption and 'autonomous profit making groups' who challenge the center and China's internal stability. I think China is heading into a period of very serious transition. I think this will be the case even if its leaders choose to remove the new Chinese leader (Xi Jinping) and let corruption run free. Even then there will still be a transition; between rival criminal groups who will rival or even surpass central power in their ability to enforce the 'law' of the jungle.
Transitions in America
I see the same issues coming to America but framed to the people and even conceptualized by many of her own leaders in a very different fashion. America as well is suffering from a most serious corruption problem. Our problem differs markedly from China's in that in America, much of the corruption has been codified in secret laws, by secret agreements or by laws that have been passed openly but are spun in the media in such a way that the people do not understand what really happened. I will give you one very important example that no one on either side of the political aisle in Washington wants to talk about. That being the looting of the Social Security Trust fund. There used to be one, there isn't one anymore. It was stolen by, Ronald Regan, Bush I, Bill Clinton, Bush II, and Barak Obama. These last two wars we fought in Afghanistan and Iraq? What they did not tell you was that your Social Security money was legally stolen to fund those two wars and the ever growing budget gap that widened every year could be called a 'surplus' as long as they could loot the trust fund. The problem today is that the trust fund now (after being looted for three decades) is now running at negative cash flow.
Thank you for inviting me here today to continue the ongoing discussion on how best to ensure the long-term viability of our nation’s Social Security program. 1 According to the OASDI Trustees’ 1998 mid-range estimates, the program’s cash flow is projected to turn negative in 2013. In addition, all of the accumulated Treasury obligations held by the Trust Funds are projected to be exhausted by 2032. The financing problems facing Social Security pose significant policy challenges that should be addressed soon in order to lessen the need for more dramatic reforms later. - GAO
China's corruption has not reached the levels of sophistication that they have in America; they are still in the equivalent of 1930's gangland Chicago. America's corruption is many times worse than China's. From trillion dollar Wall Street bailouts, to serious financial crimes that are never prosecuted on Wall Street, malfeasance inside out pharmaceutical industry, organized racketeering codified to benefit the corporation's, the US has passed any hope of a non-peaceful transition to a less corrupt state. China has a chance to change course, there is absolutely no chance America can without gut wrenching economic pain that with certainty, will lead to civil unrest. This is a certainty as long as men like Obama and McConnell can keep deceiving Americans that they represent their interest. They don't... never have and never will they can hypnotize their consituencies with political mumbo jumbo that they do, but that is just theater... and Americans love theater. They can sound reasonable for the CNN camera's but when they stop rolling, they go into the back room and line up a new crooked deal for their donors. These men and women of America's poltical system.... Shakespeare summed it up best as to what kind of men we are dealing with.
We are men, my liege.
Ay, in the catalogue ye go for men,
As hounds and greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, curs,
Shoughs, water-rugs, and demi-wolves are clept
All by the name of dogs....
And so of men.
My point here is not to create a new 'catalog of crime' for America or to lambaste our leaders many of whom genuinely hate wading through the moral cesspool of Washington, but to show you that our budgetary situation has now placed America into a period of transition. Sequestration, as bad as it is going to be is just a foretaste of things to come and just as surely as the sun will rise tomorrow those days are right around the corner. Consider this: The cuts now being proposed only amount to about one month's bond buying by the Fed. These are huge numbers and only now that the government is being forced to cut about the same amount from its programs do we begin to see just how much money it is. The howls of protest are being heard on every mainline media source and the shouts of 'bloody murder' can be heard over the potomac. We didn't hear them when they were burning through all of this money in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. But cuts are finally being forced on us and now the light has finally gone on inside America's head; but only after the anvil has firmly impacted on their foot. This issue is being framed as a budgetary one and it largely is, but the real issue is the institutionalized corruption that plagues America. In China the thieves and fraudsters may bankrupt a company or a bank, but in America, corruption is so fine tuned that they can (and are) bankrupting the nation... all under the cover of 'law'.
Transitions in the Church
Once again we see a major transition taking place. Pope Benedict is leaving office ostensibly for health reasons. Be assured, that the real reasons have little to do with health. They have everything to do with a massive web of corruption and perversion that is plaguing the Church. I have talked quite a bit about about this and while the Vatican is issuing statements to attempt to deflect is growing problems, the problem is critical; so critical that the Pope felt it necessary to resign and do so in such a way that Vatican officials fully comprehended the level of his frustration and his real opinion of many of its officials. But here, I don't think that religious corruption is only found in the Vatican. It is just as deeply rooted in Protestantism, albeit not as centralized. How many of you have heard about these Christian aid agencies who begged for money for places like Haiti and yet could not be found there by reporters, US officials or those very few aid agencies who actually did help? The problem is a real one. People give out of the kindness of their heart and find out the money has gone into someones pocket. This is especially true of America's millionaire televangelists. Many of them, I hate to break it to you are just plain crooks; they are nothing more than 'whited sepulchers'. Their god is not Christ, but mammon, which is another name (and key end time tool... let the reader understand...) for satan. These spiritual charlatans can fool millions and even fool themselves but be assured that Christ is not fooled, not for a moment.
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
My point here is not to be overly critical, but to let all know that the web of demonic corruption (and it is denomic; all of it) is real and has entangled both secular and religious institutions. Once the mammon demon gets hold of a person or instittiion, it's nearly impossible to dislodge. People become accustomed to the comfort and worldly security it brings and they will do whatever it takes to keep those things, including lie, cheat, steal, kill, blackmail, threaten, and commit myriad acts of violence. This is the ultimate manifestation of mammon; it always leads men to greater and greater wickedness. Its the fear of impoverishment and loss of comfort and the false security mammon gives its followers.
Real security comes from God and here is where we as Christians need to focus during these times of transition. Transition means change and change is usually not welcome because it takes us out of our comfort zones. In these times I think it most wise to be ready for whatever changes God has for us and to not resist them in any way. Did your wife just pull up on you? Find out what God wants you to do, where he wants you to live (not where YOU want to live). Just lost your job? Find out what God wants you to do, don't run around like a chicken with his head cut off in panic and fear, but carefully seek God's guidance and help. Did you just get diagnosed with a potentially fatal disease? Get before the Lord and find out it he is getting ready to call you home. Don't resist it if it is his will. My mother towards the end didn't. She fought very hard at first but towards the end, she knew... it was time. She had put all of her affairs in order and went out deeply loved and appreciated by her children, family and friends. Take heed here brethren, I have said this before - sticking around here as the antichrist system continues to amalgamate power is going to be no picnic. Things are like to get very, very rough. So if the Lord is indeed calling you home, fret not. Prepare your soul to meet him; prepare your worldly affairs as well and Praise God above for the days he has allowed you to enjoy! But first of all make sure it really is him calling you home and not a different kind of trial from God. Physical death is just another transition that all believers (save those who will be translated at the Lord's second coming) will face.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
As you read the news in these times and see the tremendous change that will be taking place, always keep your foot on the firm foundation of Christ, understand the dynamics of mammon so that you are not sucked down into that satanic vortex and keep your hope, not in this world, but in the Kingdom of Heaven. Don't make the transition from Godly person who a lost soul.
Keep your eyes on the cross and your redeemer who shall judge the living and the dead.
