HAITI’S MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE

ONE country that could not afford to suffer a natural disaster was impoverished and politically fragile Haiti.

The history of this small Caribbean nation is a catalog of political and other disasters. In 2008 four tropical storms killed 800 people, left one million of its 9 million population homeless. But the 7.0 earthquake that shook the country on January 12/10, has been described as a disaster of “biblical proportions.”

Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, was devastated; entire villages collapsed. Schools, hospitals, houses, offices, shops, the cathedral, and the headquarters of the United Nations mission collapsed in 45 murderous seconds.

Bodies flew through the air and were crushed under mountains of debris. Human limbs protruded from destroyed buildings, and muffled cries from trapped victims filled the thick air. The screams and wails of the injured and mourning were mixed with prayers and hymns from dazed, disbelieving survivors caked in dust and blood.

Orphanages, churches, markets, homes, and government buildings all collapsed. Civil government virtually ceased to function. Without power, communication was cut off and rescue efforts were seriously hampered. Bodies piled up, hope ran out, and help arrived too late to save many victims.

The damage in some areas was even more dramatic than in the capital. Reports say the scene in Leogane, about 19km (12 miles) west of Port-au-Prince, was “apocalyptic,” with thousands left homeless, and almost every building destroyed.

The quake degraded an already feeble health service by destroying many hospitals and clinics, including all three aid centres run by Médecins Sans Frontières. The lack of medicine and facilities, and the scale of the injuries, meant that many people perished from the lack of timely medical care.

A UN official said aid workers are dealing with a disaster “like no other” in UN memory because the country had been “decapitated.”

President René Préval, who was as stunned and dazed as the people seeking refuge in the streets, said simply, “It is a catastrophe… the country is like a war zone.”

An estimated 200,000+ people lost their lives; 250,000 were injured; and 1.5 million were made homeless.

The earthquake that has forever changed Haiti came as subterranean plates shifted about six miles under the surface of the earth, along a fault line that had threatened trouble for centuries. But no one saw a quake of this magnitude coming; it came like a nightmare.

In truth, it looked as if the wrath of God had fallen upon Haiti – a nation that is well known for its history of religious syncretism - mixing elements of various faiths, including occultic practices. The nation is known for voodoo, sorcery, and a Catholic tradition that has been greatly influenced by the occult.

Does it mean that God has judged Haiti?  We cannot say that!  Rather, we can say that this massive disaster is one more warning from God – like the tsunamis, quakes, cyclones, fires, droughts, famines, plagues, super-diseases, asteroid near-misses, of recent years.

The increase of earthquakes worldwide is certainly a sign of the end of this age.  All quakes are recorded, but most earthquakes occurring today are not reported.  It’s only the major ones that cause severe damage, that are considered news-worthy.

 

THE WORLD IS CONSTANTLY SHAKING  

Did you know, on average, the Earth experiences, each year, one earthquake of magnitude 8; ten earthquakes of magnitude 7; and one hundred earthquakes of magnitude 6.  (Geoscience Australia.)  And there are tens of thousands of quakes less than 6.

Charts for the last 30 days (17 Dec 09 to 17 Jan 10), reveal there were

 

144 “strong” quakes of magnitude 5+ (including 14 in Haiti region),

14 “major” quakes of magnitude 6+, and

2 “massive” quakes that measured 7 (Haiti - Jan 12) and 7.2  (Solomons - Jan 3.)

A WARNING

All these earthquakes are a warning of the ultimate earthquake that is scheduled for the Great Tribulation, as the prophecies foretell.

“For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken asunder, the earth is split through; the earth is shaken violently. The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard, and it totters like a shack, for its transgression is heavy upon it.” (Isaiah 24:18-20)

 “Then there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.

“The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. And God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of His furious wrath and indignation. And every island fled away, and the mountains could not be found.” (Revelation 16:18-20

The earthquake in Haiti, like every other earthly disaster, reminds us that the creation is groaning under the weight of men’s sin and the consequences of evil.

“For the intense longing of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, with the anticipation that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the glorious freedom of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.”  (Romans 8:19-22)

Creation cries out for a New Creation. The entire cosmos is awaiting the revelation of the Glory of the coming “Lord of lords.”  Amen!

2010.  Haiti seems like a fanfare – a portent of things to come in 2010.  I am not predicting  (as I am not a prophet!), but when you see smoke, and hear loud noises, you know something is going on. We are living in very crucial times!

My dear reader, before we leave Haiti, there is one more basic lesson for each one of us. In 45 seconds, Haiti was destroyed, and within an hour, some 200,000 lives were snuffed out. Some of those souls were ready to meet the Lord Jesus, their Saviour. Many were not!

The message is, Be ready, for you do not know what a day will bring forth. And if you do not know the salvation that the Lord Jesus has provided for you, you are in great danger. But you can know His salvation this very day, if you place your faith in the Saviour.

God’s promise is: “Whoever will call on the Name of the Lord (Jesus) will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

IN early January, the www.americanchronicle.com published an analysis, entitled:

 

2010 WILL WITNESS THE MOST

DESTRUCTIVE WARS IN MODERN HISTORY 

An analysis by Hamid Ghoriafi, a Middle East journalist, was originally written in Arabic for the Lebanese Canadian Coordinating Council (LCCC http://www.10452lccc.com), and it was translated by LCCC Chairman, Elias Bejjani.

The prediction of Hamid Ghoriafi is that …

2010 will witness the most destructive wars in modern history (presumably, not including WW2).

2010 will determine the fate of Iran and Lebanon for many years.                

2010 will observe a bitter end of Hizb’allah and the destruction of Syria´s missile and chemical programs.

Ghoriafi’s analytical prediction may or may not be fulfilled in 2010, but in the light of the prophecies in Psalm 83, Isaiah 17 and Zechariah 12, his comments on conflicts involving Iran, Lebanon, Hizb’allah and Syria are not merely interesting – they are alarming!

PSALM 83:1-8, 17-18

“O God, do not keep silent! Do not be quiet, and do not be still, O God! For look, Your enemies are roaring; and those who hate You have raised their heads. They craftily plot against Your people, and conspire against Your hidden, treasured ones.

“They have said, ‘Come, and let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.’ For they have conspired together with one mind; they make a pact against You; the tents of Edom and the Ishmailites (Arabs); Moab and the Hagarites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia (Palestinians) with the inhabitants of Tyre (Lebanon). Assyria (Iraq) also had joined with them; they have been a help to the sons of Lot (Jordan). Selah ….

“Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever; yes, let them be humiliated and perish, that they may know that You, whose Name is YHWH - You alone are the Most High over all the earth.” 

Ghoriafi refers to Israeli experts who strongly believe that the Iranian regime could pre-empt any international military attack against its nuclear program and start a war against Israel from Lebanon through Hizb’allah and Palestinian armed militias allied with Syria in Lebanon.

Such an Iranian act would give Israel the needed justification to wage an unprecedented destructive war against both Hizb’allah and Lebanon, totally crippling their capabilities for many years to come.

The experts predict that Israel will need from 5 to 6 weeks to totally liquidate and eliminate Hizb’allah’s leadership, all the military and political teams working with them, and to dismantle the Lebanese army structure.

The Israeli analysts believe this time their country will also hit Syrian targets including sites in Damascus and in North Syria in a bid to eliminate Syria’s chemical and missile programs. Syria would be hit massively if it turns out that Hizb’allah’s long-range missiles that target Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities, are indeed Syrian-made.

In fact, a report just to hand, says an Israeli government-financed center has asserted that the Hizb’allah has planted huge bombs along the border with Israel. And the bombs are believed to have been produced in Iran and Syria.  - www.worldtribune.com

     ISAIAH 17:1

“The oracle concerning Damascus. Look! Damascus is about to be removed from being a city, and it will become a heap of ruins.”

As Syria does not figure in the list of nations allied with Rosh in Ezekiel 38, it is widely believed that Isaiah 17:1 could be fulfilled before the Tribulation. That is quite possible, but we cannot state that it must take place before the Rapture.

Likewise, as the coalition of enemies in Psalm 83 do not figure in the Confederation of Rosh (Ez 38); and as the content of Psalm 83 does not seem to dovetail into the Russian-led invasion, it is possible that Psalm 83 could also occur before the Tribulation.

Some prophecy teachers see Psalm 83 as already having been partly fulfilled several times – in 1967, 1973 and 1982 – but believe an ultimate fulfilment is still to come.

Zechariah’s prophecy refers to Judah as “a flaming torch” for the nations around, and this is in the context of all the nations coming up against Jerusalem for battle. That is clearly a prophecy regarding the Tribulation.

Some people see the first half of the Tribulation as a time of peace. But that is not so.  The peace brought about by the 7-year treaty (the rider on the white horse - Rev 6:2) lasts a short time. Then the rider on the red horse takes peace from the earth - (Rev 6:4)

ZECHARIAH 12:5-6

“Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are a strong support for us through YHWH of Hosts, their God.’ In that day I will make the leaders of Judah like a burning pot in a woodpile, and like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples; and Jerusalem will be inhabited again on her own sites - in Jerusalem.”

The war that Ghoriafi expects this year will be severe, but it will not be of a world war.  He says:

“Experts estimate the number of Israeli casualties, as a result of Iranian and Syrian missiles, to be between 1,000 and 2,000, with 4000 injured. Hizb’allah and Lebanese losses will be four to five times greater than their casualties of the 2006 war. These losses will be around 8,000 dead and 16,000 wounded. Many Shiite border villages, as well as towns and cities in the Bekaa valley and Beirut’s southern suburbs, will be totally destroyed and cease to exist.

“More than a million Lebanese would be displaced from their homes, mainly from south Lebanon, the Bekaa valley and south Beirut suburbs, and they would mostly take refuge in Syria. The Lebanese economic infrastructure would be destroyed and transformed into mere ruins. Reconstruction would take many years.

“British defence officials have affirmed that this grim, intimidating and scary picture predicted by the Israeli experts for the coming year seems to be very close to the actual devastating reality that will hit Lebanon in the next war. The Israelis, as they are advocating worldwide, are solidly determined to close the Hizb’allah case once and for all, due to the fact that they wish to eliminate the possibility of any future wars and finally achieve security on their northern border.”

 

   TURKEY- ISRAEL   

RELATIONS CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE

 

Turkey was considered to be a close friend and ally of Israel, an image that officials of the Israeli Labor Party, headed by Ehud Barak, are still trying to maintain.

A veteran Labor politician says there is no diplomatic crisis between Israel and Turkey despite the harsh anti-Israel statements by Erdogan and his ministers since the Gaza operation a year ago.  But clearly, relations between these nations have drastically deteriorated, and they will continue to fall lower.

JAN 11/10. Turkey accused Israel of threatening peace in the region and of using disproportionate force against Palestinians. PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Israel to stop violating Lebanon’s airspace and territorial waters. He also called on the UN Security Council to put the same pressure on Israel regarding nuclear arms as it does on Iran.

“We can never remain silent in the face of Israel’s attitude ... It has disproportionate power and it is using that at will while refusing to abide by UN resolutions. We can never accept this picture,” Erdogan said. “These steps threaten global peace.”

JAN 12/10. Israel has again issued a stern rebuke to Turkey’s ambassador over a television series which depicts Israeli intelligence agents as baby-snatchers. 

Last October Israel complained over another Turkish TV series, which depicted Israeli soldiers killing Palestinians. In one clip, an Israeli soldier shoots dead a smiling young girl at close range. Israel’s foreign ministry issued a statement denouncing the series, and Mr Erdogan’s comments, as “anti-Israel.”  – BBC 

TURKEY BOOSTS TIES WITH LEBANON, SYRIA AND IRAN

As Turkey’s relations with Israel deteriorate, its relations with Israel’s three declared enemies to the north - Iran, Syria and Lebanon are warming. Last October Erdogan stated that cooperation with the Syria and Iran is important for peace in the Middle East.

Lebanese PM Saad Hariri recently visited Turkey to ratify agreements that would cancel visa requirements and strengthen defence cooperation between the two nations. Turkey and Lebanon are signing military agreements for training, weapons and exchanging expertise.

Then at a joint press conference with Turkish PM Erdogan, Hariri declared that Israel is an enemy of Lebanon. Turkey’s new military ties with Lebanon follow recent defence pacts signed with SYRIA and IRAN. And during a visit by Erdogan to IRAN, Iranian President Ahmadinejad praised the Turkish PM for his “clear stance against the Zionist regime.”

TURKEY WARNS LEBANON OF A POSSIBLE  ISRAELI  ATTACK

 Jan 14/10. Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Lebanese leaders that Israel may be planning an attack on its northern neighbour. At a meeting in Ankara (Turkey) with Lebanese PM Saad Hariri and President Michel Suleiman, Erdogan declared that Israel was endangering world peace by using exaggerated force against the Palestinians, breaching Lebanon’s air space and waters and for not revealing the details of its nuclear program. – www.haaretz.com

RUSSIA, TURKEY SIGN PACT ON NUCLEAR STATION

Jan 14/10. The warming trend in Russian-Turkish ties increased as the two nations signed a nuclear energy cooperation accord.  Ankara and Moscow have agreed to build a nuclear station in Turkey. - worldtribune.com

On the southern front, reports anticipate another war in Gaza.

PLANS TO REMOVE HAMAS!

Egypt, the PA and the US are said to be teaming up with Israel in a plan to drive Hamas from power in Gaza.  Saudi Arabia and Jordan should also be in favour of this strategy as the Iran-backed Hamas entity is a real threat to all of them.

Egypt is already building an iron wall along its border with Gaza. The wall extends deep under the surface of the ground in order to block smuggling tunnels, and to prevent Palestinian entry into the Sinai.

Israel is also building a wall on long stretches of its border with Egypt that reaches from Gaza to Eilat.

And the US seems determined to broker a peace agreement this year. To accomplish this, Hamas has to be taken out of the way so that Mahmoud Abbas can remain the undisputed leader of the Palestinians. But Obama’s peace plan has no chance of succeeding while Hamas dominates the Palestinian agenda.

Another danger is that al-Qaida is building a strong presence in Gaza. This poses not only a national threat to Egypt, but like the terrorist base developing in Yemen, it constitutes a growing threat to the security of the whole Middle East. Some are already calling Gaza the new Yemen.

HAMAS AND EGYPT ON COLLISION COURSE

In January, Gazan Palestinians protested against the wall that is being built along its border with Egypt. The construction of the metal wall is enraging residents of Gaza and their supporters as it will threaten the Islamist movement’s main lifeline in Gaza.

Serious unruly clashes broke out at Rafah between Hamas-controlled mobs and Egyptian security forces. Some 200 Palestinians hurled stones, and an Egyptian soldier was shot dead.

These clashes will lead to a larger conflict between the two entities, says Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar. “It is only a matter of time until it happens,” he says. “These clashes are representative of a larger struggle between Egypt, a sovereign secular country, and the new state in Gaza, led by a fundamentalist Islamic organization that wants to place the world under the kingdom of Allah.

“The Egyptians refuse to let Hamas continue to dig tunnels under their noses,” Dr. Kedar said. “Further-more, Hamas’ cooperation with Iran threatens Egypt.”

Egyptian President Mubarak faces a true dilemma and is afraid of losing power. “On the one hand he needs to rid Egypt of the hornets’ nest of all those al-Qaeda operatives, but on the other hand, if his hand gets too heavy on Hamas in Gaza, he exposes himself to a conflict with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.”

Hamas’ refusal to sign a reconciliation agreement with its secular Fatah rivals, and to agree to a prisoner swap with Israel through Cairo’s mediation, now appear to be endangering its relations with Egypt.

“Egypt decided to build the steel wall in order to punish Hamas, which irritated Cairo by refusing to sign the reconciliation agreement,” says Emad Gad of Cairo’s Al-Ahram Centre for Political and Strategic Studies.

“From now on, Hamas is in a tight spot. It is under a full blockade; the tunnels used to smuggle funding from Iran will be shut down and the population will only have the bare minimum needed to survive,” he adds.

It is doubtful, however, whether Egypt will completely shut down the tunnels; Cairo’s fear of instability in Gaza will prevent it from escalating tensions with Hamas.   - Sources:  Arutz Sheva  & www.telegraph.co.uk

  ISRAEL’S ‘IRON DOME’ ANTI-MISSILE SYSTEM READY

JAN 2010. Israel’s newest mobile missile and artillery defence system, Iron Dome, will soon be deployed in the field. Rafael Advanced Defence Systems, and the Defence Ministry, has completed the Iron Dome tests. The system is able to handle a multitude of attacks simultaneously, taking down multiple incoming rockets and mortar shells in mid-air.

Iron Dome is designed to defend Israeli towns and cities against short-range missiles, rockets and artillery such as those fired by the Palestinians in Gaza and the Hizb’allah terrorists in Lebanon.

Defence Ministry Director Pinchas Bukhris said that Iron Dome “will alter the political and security situation of Israel on both the northern and southern fronts.”

The Iron Dome, the IDF Spokesperson’s Office emphasized, is one part of an all-enveloping missile defence network. While Iron Dome is effective against short-range threats, the Israeli systems known as the Magic Wand and Arrow are designed to counter medium-to-long-range missile attacks.

2010  --  THE  YEAR  OF  IRAN

Haaretz, Israel, says: “The year 2010 will be the year of Iran. Granted, we have said the same thing every year since 2005. But stopping the Iranian nuclear program will continue to top Israel’s priorities this year.

“The major powers are expected to announce soon that diplomacy has failed to persuade Tehran to freeze its nuclear project. And Western intelligence services believe the Iranians have already accumulated enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb or two.

If Iran acquired a nuclear arsenal, the risks are simply too great that it would become a neighborhood bully, and would provide terrorists with the ultimate weapon - an atomic bomb.

               NEWS HEADLINES ABOUT IRAN

COPENHAGEN SUMMIT  “A FAILURE”   

DEC 12/09. THE EUOBSERVER comments:

The Copenhagen summit, billed as a historic meeting about nothing less than saving the planet for human habitation, ended with a low-key accord that was rejected by poor nations, described as “disappointing” by EU leaders, and condemned by NGOs as a “shameful, monumental failure.”

After two years of preparations and ever grimmer scientific assessments of the state the planet is in, from its melting ice-caps to acidifying oceans, in the small hours of Saturday morning (19 December), it all came down to a deal agreed to by about 25 heads of state and put together outside the UN process by a clutch of countries led by China, South Africa, India, Brazil and the US.

The text, which only “recognises” the need to limit global temperatures to rising no more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels - but does not require that this happen - was itself only “recognised” - not approved - by the 193 countries attending the Copenhagen summit.

The accord “sets a goal” of delivering $100 billion a year to developing countries to help them deal with the effects of climate change and to move towards a low-carbon development path. Poorer nations complained that this was not nearly enough!

Fredrik Reinfeldt, Sweden’s PM and holder of the EU’s six-month rotating presidency, admitted the conclusion to the conference will not counter global warming.

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said the accord was “a positive step but clearly below our ambitions,” while adding: “I will not hide my disappointment.”

Developing countries were more scathing. Lumumba Di-Aping, the chief negotiator of the G77 group of nations called the end product of the conference “the lowest level of ambition you can imagine. It’s nothing short of climate change scepticism in action. It locks countries into a cycle of poverty for ever.”

Bolivia’s UN ambassador, Pablo Solon, was furious that the accord had been drafted without the participation of most of the world’s countries: “This is completely unacceptable. How can it be that 25 to 30 nations cook up an agreement that excludes the majority of the 190 nations?” he asked. As the dust was settling on the conference, some worried that “the north” (developed world) would only offer climate cash to those countries that signed onto the accord.

“The US appears to be more interested in saving face than saving the planet,” said Friends of the Earth executive director Andy Atkins. “They are now using strong-arm tactics to bully the developing world into backing a plan that completely undermines the existing UN process. This summit has been a complete failure - the climate accord should be sent to the recycling bin,” he added, referring to the Danish capital as “Brokenhagen.”

COPENHAGEN SHOWS THE NWO MAY BE

LED BY U.S. & CHINA

The Washington Post commented:

If the talks that resulted in an imperfect deal to combat global warming provided anything, it was a glimpse into a new world order in which international diplomacy will increasingly be shaped by the US and emerging powers, most notably China.

Friday’s agreement boiled down to President Obama and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao personally hammering out a pact both could live with, even if many other leaders could not. 

What Obama heralded as a “breakthrough” -- after getting India and other rising powers to sign on -- was decried by some nations as too little, too late. The leaders of Europe, Japan and other countries at the summit were largely left to rubber-stamp the deal. 

Ever since the concept of a “G2” was proposed last year, the idea that the US and China together are going to solve all the world’s problems has been pooh-poohed by both American and Chinese officials. China hated the notion because it put too much responsibility on a country that has done very well rising in the shadows. 

“This conference of 193 countries came down to a conversation between the leaders of those two superpowers.” China is becoming a major player, albeit reluctantly; the US, with similar unease, is making room for China at the table of world leaders.

“We’re not exactly partners, but we’re much more equals,” said an American leader.                                                                          - www.washingtonpost.com

The Coperhagen’s climate agreement reflected the domestic political realities in Washington and Beijing. Both nations, the two biggest emitters of green-house gases, remain more cautious than, say, the governments of Europe about establishing a strict set of international rules to combat global warming. Not coincidentally, the agreement allows nations to set their own emission reduction targets and provides no deadline for signing a binding accord.

 

 

 

 

UN HAILS COPENHAGEN DEAL AS

AN ‘ESSENTIAL BEGINNING’

The Telegraph, UK, made these comments:

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, welcomed the climate deal in Copenhagen as an “essential beginning” despite opposition from developing nations.

Delegates finally agreed to ‘recognize’ the US-brokered deal, which was arranged between five key nations including China and Brazil but which did not secure unanimous support.

Ban Ki-moon  told journalists: “Finally, we sealed the deal. It may not be everything we hoped for, but this decision of the Conference of Parties is an essential beginning.” But he added: “We must transform this into a legally binding treaty next year. The importance will only be recognized when it’s codified into international law.”

An exhausted Ed Miliband, Britain’s Environment Secretary, insisted the outcome was not a failure. He said it was very important that the adoption of the accord drawn up by leaders would allow the flow of money to begin. But he said: “We recognize there could have been more ambition in parts of this agreement. Therefore we have got to drive forward as hard as we can towards both a legally binding treaty and that ambition.”  - www.telegraph.co.uk

 

 

THREE  STEPS TOWARDS a

‘NEW WORLD ORDER’

(ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT)

By  AARON YEOMAN

PASTOR, SYDNEY AUSTRALIA

 

WITH ever-increasing speed, the world heads towards the Biblically predicted One World Government. The “Mystery of Iniquity” (2 Thes. 2:7) will have its culmination in the “Man of Sin” (2 Thes. 2:3), the “Anti-Christ” (I John 2:18),who will attempt to reign as Satan’s regent on earth.

However, the process towards this zenith of rebellion against the Lord and His Anointed (Psalm 2:1-3) has included the efforts of unregenerate and callous, influential men throughout history. An attempted reversal of Babel required the theft of national sovereignties, especially that of such a large and important nation as the United States of America.

Two leaders have perhaps facilitated this betrayal more than many others, President Woodrow Wilson and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. At present one man, it would seem, is emulating this historical pattern: President Barack Obama.

 

PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON

(1913-21)

At the end of his life Wilson commented, “I am a most unhappy man ... unwittingly I have ruined my country.” This is a strange comment from a person who had international renown as a ‘man of peace.’ However, in his lust for political success, Wilson departed from the high ideals that had marked his earlier life and became an accomplice of malevolent forces. During his presidency the sovereignty and financial strength of the United States was hugely compromised.

With the passing of the Federal Reserve Act (1913), Wilson had overseen the wealth of the nation passing into the hands of private international financiers. The continuing cycle of increasing debt, inflation and huge manipulated fluctuations of the American stock exchange have affected the world till the present day.

This system of a “central bank” disguises itself as a government institution, yet, in reality, it is an extremely small and powerful group that loans gigantic amounts from a reserve that only exists as an accounting transaction. Genuine and stable wealth, in the form of U.S. Gold reserves, started to be discretely sold into private hands. Interests on the loans are then paid by the tax-burdened citizen.

The few with inside knowledge of these engineered fluctuations can make immense profits at the expense of the uninformed populous. Great influence through debt could now be exerted on this formerly democratic nation by a non-elected few.

For many decades, before Wilson’s presidency, a group of private financiers, wealthy business leaders and historically powerful family dynasties had been trying to control the world. Having already been successful in Europe, their network would now try to control the United States.

After helping him gain the presidency, the plotters used a number of agents to manipulate Wilson to do their bidding. Chief among the agents was Colonel Edward Mandel House, who asserted immense influence on President Wilson. One of his successes was the introduction of a graduated income tax.

Although it seems a fair system, a graduated income tax allows the financially powerful to remain so. Those with great wealth, especially family dynasties with huge inheritances, can never lose control when more recent wealth creation is hindered by an increasing percentage of tax.

This system coupled with the erection of tax-free foundations for the wealthy families continued to increase the power of the financial elite. In theory the foundations were for the support of philanthropic pursuits but in reality the wealth was used for deriving advantageous political and investment outcomes for their founders.

For those amoral and demonically controlled (some, if not all, were practicing Satanists) few, the evils of war and financial ruin for the populations of the world were of no concern in their desire for wealth and power. This is the reason that President Wilson subsequently entered the United States into the First World War. It was a complete reversal of his previous ‘isolationist’ policy (1916) on which he had stood for re-election.

The spiritual damage wrought on this new nation by the war cannot be over-emphasized. Spiritualists invented the Ouija Board and such was the grief of many families for the loss of their sons that its use became a widespread phenomenon among the bereaved, hence opening up the population to the deception of lying spirits and demonic influence.

With thousands of his countrymen slain, Wilson attended the Paris Peace conference at Versailles (1919) with Colonel House and many of the world’s financial elite. At first, the Germans were confident that with Wilson’s participation, the truth that they were not the sole protagonists would be recognized. However, the Germans were given the total responsibility for the First World War and the following treaty was so harsh it was the major reason for the Second World War.

This brought about the entry of, greatly resented, overseas financial speculation into the ruined German economy (that was subsequently blamed on innocent Jews), and then lucrative investments in Hitler’s totalitarian regime in its reconstruction and rearmament stages.

Under Wilson’s presidency, the first attempt at World Government was made in the form of the League of Nations. With finance from the Rockefellers, a family business dynasty that also had tax-free foundations, a large headquarters for the League was built in Geneva, Switzerland.

Opposition from within the United States rendered the League a failure. However, the impressive headquarters was later used for the headquarters of the World Trade Organization, which is another attempt at World Government that is yet to reach its full potential for its globalist creators.

In addition, under Wilson’s presidency, Colonel House finalized the creation of the Council on Foreign Relations while in Paris for the Peace conference. The Council has been described as the real power behind the United States Government, its members filling a large proportion of all subsequent government positions. With its sister institution in the United Kingdom, the C.F.R. facilitates its globalist policies at all levels, such as the planning of the second Iraq war.

 

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT

(1933-45)

Loved for his “fireside chat” weekly radio broadcasts and admired for his striving with poliomyelitis, Franklin Roosevelt was a popular president of his time. Like his predecessor, Wilson, F.D.R. led the United States into war and allowed the nation to further become a tool of malevolent forces in their quest for a one world government.

In his quest for political success, he was a willing accomplice with corporate power, international finance and the betrayal of other nations to Soviet aggression. Such were the manifestations of his administration’s decisions, it would seem that his life was prematurely brought to an end by those unseen directors of his presidency.

Roosevelt came from a career background in finance and government appointments, including Assistant Secretary of the Navy. In a letter to Colonel Mandel House in 1933, Roosevelt revealed that he believed financial interests controlled the government. This would seem to indicate that House was highly complicit in his many controversial decisions. Like Wilson before him, Roosevelt conferred with many agents of the unelected powers that by then directed the nation.

As the inheritor of the post Wall Street Crash American economy, then in the midst of the Great Depression, Roosevelt acted as a facilitator for corporate speculation. This was the second phase of this engineered crisis.

Roosevelt proposed a “New Deal” for Americans suffering high unemployment and economic decline. However his initiative was actually extremely favorable to corporate monopolies, to the extent that it has been described as ‘corporate socialism’, and for reasons of political opposition was never fully implemented.

During Roosevelt’s early presidency, the Great Seal of the United States was placed on the one-dollar note (1933). There is not one Christian aspect to this seal but much that is occult and demonic, including, in Latin, the name “New World Order.” This was the conspirators’ insult and challenge to those who held that the United States was founded on the principles of religious freedom and Christian values.

However, the Lord has thwarted these plans over the last 200 years and will continue to do so until He allows them to reach their fruition in the Man of Sin during His Tribulation judgments when the unrepentant guilty will be punished.

Like Wilson before him, Roosevelt deliberately ignored national opinion and allowed the United States to enter World War II. With previous naval service, Roosevelt would possibly have had a clear understanding that, except for two that may have still been kept secret, all major Japanese warships were modified earlier designs.

For this reason, the then current American Navy would have been capable of checking Japanese expansion in the Pacific. However, Roosevelt deliberately ignored authoritative and accurate intelligence of a pre-emptive strike on the Hawaiian Pearl Harbour Naval Base and therefore supplied his globalist backers with the pretext to enter the war.

At the conference at Casablanca with Winston Churchill, Roosevelt shocked his fellow allied leader by declaring Germany would only be offered unconditional terms of surrender. Churchill’s obvious surprise was actually caught on newsreel camera!

This decision completely undermined the genuine and substantial opposition to the war inside Germany such as those behind Claus Von Stauffenberg. Now the protracted and highly destructive war sought by his controllers would come to pass as Roosevelt obeyed the globalists and followed their agenda.

Throughout the war, by a program called “Lend Lease,” the U.S. built up the Soviet ‘Red Army’ to the extent that by 1945 it was the world’s largest land force. So many weapons were supplied that on the Eastern Front the German Army fought against Soviet army units completely equipped with American tanks.

This allowed the Soviet forces to race ahead of the armies of the US and Britain to defeat the Germans in Eastern Europe. It also allowed the Soviets to divert forces to subjugate liberated nations against the will of their populations. At the final allied conference at Yalta in the Soviet Union, Roosevelt officially betrayed Eastern Europe into Soviet enslavement after building the Red Army into Stalin’s means of conquest. This occurred even when the atomic bomb was available to check Soviet expansion.

Now, for decades after the war, a state of nuclear tension between the superpowers would be a continuous drain on Western economies, building defences for an aggressor that was actually helped into being. Only recently was the atheistic tyranny of the Soviet Union over Eastern Europe finally relieved, which will pave the way for the even greater tyranny of a New World Order ruled by the Anti-Christ.

Regarding China, U.S. meddling by the Roosevelt administration ended with Chiang Kai Chek besieged in Formosa/Taiwan and victory for the Communists. Much of this interference was enacted outside official government channels, setting a dangerous precedent for following administrations. Under Roosevelt, the UN came into being, an attempted world government of which Eleanor Roosevelt was a vocal proponent after her husband’s death. America’s gold reserve continued to be dissipated during Roosevelt’s presidency.

It is possible that, as Roosevelt’s presidency had been so profitable to his globalist controllers, that his failing health could have become a liability regarding the secrecy of their plans. He died without obvious warning at Warm Springs, Georgia in 1945 and the usual protocols were not subsequently followed.

Even the man who perhaps profited most from Roosevelt, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, exclaimed, “He didn’t even lie in State!” Roosevelt’s body was quickly cremated, his casket only holding his ashes for the state funeral, therefore potentially obliterating any evidence of murder.

PRESIDENT BARACK H. OBAMA.

(2008 - PRESENT a)

With the election of the first African-American to the presidency, great hopes were expressed by many that the world would change for the better.

However, from the policies and initiatives that have so far been implemented by this president and his administration, it is evident that the globalist agenda is only accelerating. From the personalities that are influencing President Obama, his foreign policies, and his handling of the world financial crisis, it is clear that the ambitions of the moneyed elite will continue to be pursued.

The American people are continually being betrayed as they follow Leaders whose elected presidential office is more than ever merely an honorary title.

Described as the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression, the 2008-9 situation would seem to bear many similarities to its historical precursor and has had a similar outcome. This would mean it was engineered for the increased power and profit of the Federal Reserve.

International financiers, through their secretive organizations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, have gained great power and influence over many nations and have created the infrastructure for the planned ‘one world currency.’ As in the U.S., this is being achieved through private central banks that are disguised as national institutions.

The decision of the Obama administration to initiate an unprecedented financial bailout of various banks and insurance companies via the Federal Reserve, has continued to follow the historical pattern. The wealthy elite has been saved from their failed investments and financial speculations by using the population as the guarantor of rescue loans. The average citizen, however, has been wounded financially and is unable to benefit from the rescue funds that he or she will ultimately be libel to pay back in the form of future higher taxation.

Once again the Federal Reserve has generated great future wealth for its private owners, by supplying the emergency loan financing from its monopoly charter to print money apart from any actual underlying finances.

Early in his presidency, President Obama had a meeting with Al Gore, the highly influential proponent of the ‘Climate Change Theory.’ Though totally devoid of scientific fact, a large media propaganda campaign and a money-manipulated scientific fraternity are facilitating the implementation of this latest ‘new world order’ initiative.

In concert with the United Nations, the successor to the failed ‘League of Nations’ and also funded by Rockefeller money, the target for this falsehood is the sovereignty and prosperity of Western nations.

Using fear and manipulation, elected governments will be goaded into accepting manipulation; they will be goaded into accepting what is actually a global system of taxation with the attendant undermining of nation states.

‘Climate change’ is the latest creation of a conspiratorial elite who have continued to work towards a world dictatorship for over 200 years and in doing so play their part in the “Mystery of Iniquity.” (2 Thes. 2:7)

In the United States the most influential individuals within this group are graduates and members of exclusive fraternities based at Yale University. The members of these secret societies often obtain pivotal positions in various disciplines including finance, politics and the corporate world.

From these positions of influence, they continue to undermine democratically-elected governments via global treaties and conventions, cross-border corporate influence, trade and tariff agreements, lobbyists, threats of war, privatisation initiatives and the manipulation of those indebted to international financiers.

American jobs will continue to be lost, as in other western nations, because it will aid in the creation of the planned worldwide socialist dictatorship.

With the new globalist tactic of ‘climate change’, the world has reached an ominous juncture. The theory is diametrically opposed to the clear teachings of scripture as to the origin of the Earth and to the promises of God Himself. The theory is in conflict with the Noachian covenant (Gen 8:22) as to the Lord’s continued perpetuation of the seasons and it infers that the breathable atmosphere of Earth is a serendipitous - a pleasant culmination of factors happening by chance - and not a precisely regulated environment created and maintained by Divine Will.

As with the invention of nuclear weapons, in sinful vanity, fallen mankind speculates he can be the master or destroyer of his own destiny, with regards to a potential environmental destruction of the planet, in direct contradiction of God’s prophetic plan for the ages of a continuing Earth as revealed in His scripture (Rev 20:6).

As has become a usual feature of recent U.S. governments, the nation of Israel Has become the focus of political pressure that is plainly not in the nation’s best self interests. This little country, which is so pivotal in the future plans of God, continues to attract the attention of politicians worldwide who, in sinful conceit, repeatedly try to reverse the Lord’s partial re-gathering of the Jewish race. They will fail.

With repeated use of the historically false claim of a ‘Palestinian race,’ the Obama administration undermines future Israeli security with the proposed neighboring state. This will continue as Israel is not just a factor in Middle Eastern oil politics today; her existence is seen as an impediment to global unity and hence the coming ‘new world order.’

Although some claim that the United States has been a consistent supporter of Israel, recent changes to the balance of power in the region show some dramatic reversals. Saudi Arabia and Egypt have been sold M1 Abrams tanks, weapons far more potent than the previously Russian sourced equipment in use with Arab armies, the Egyptians even being supplied an M1 production line!  Although U.S. defence funding for Israel has risen in response, this increase in the armories of Israel’s traditional enemies is very likely to cost  Israel precious lives in any future conflagration.

As Globalist policies continue to weaken U.S. employment rates, so markets will be sought for advanced weaponry, and with it the obvious threat of more foreign policy compromises.

A future situation, where Israel has no friendly relations in the World is now not too difficult to imagine, and this is exactly what is scripturally prophesied to come to pass during the coming Tribulation.                                                (Revelation 16:14)   q
