There have been roughly 4,500 years since the flood, i.e. triple the amount of time of the 1,500 years of pre-flood civilization that ended in the destruction of the world by flood. Yet despite numerous empires demonstrating appalling evil against mankind, we have not yet reached the utter depths of evil doing of Noah’s days prophesied to trigger the end of the world.
What does it take?
A strategy to end all strategies for the purpose of wiping out all humanity.
- great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world [i.e even in the days of Noah],
- And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh / mortal body, human nature be saved:” (Matthew 24)
Based on prophecy, the Abomination that causes desolation in Jerusalem and Judea is the alliance made between Israel and a pagan nation, which then turns on Israel in ever escalating levels of desolation.
Israel has invariably been betrayed by the empires with whom they made alliances for protection – Assyria, Babylon, Greece, Rome. This doesn’t change for the current iteration of the nation of Israel or Roman Empire.
Where are the majority of the world’s Jews currently located? In America.
Who does geographical Israel depend upon for safety? America.
This too shall pass when an Israeli alliance is no longer beneficial. Say, when an American-Turkish alliance is more beneficial.
Review America’s abandonment of Christians at Smyrna for a preview of this possibility.
Asa Jennings was a failed small-town Methodist minister from upstate New York working for the YMCA in Smyrna, Turkey, in 1922, when he saved a quarter of a million Christians from perishing in a brutal final chapter of the Armenian Genocide.
“A private individual, a guy without portfolio, who held a minor position in the YMCA, came forward and put together this astonishing rescue…”
Smyrna, known today as Izmir, had been a cosmopolitan port under Greek rule…But after Turkish armed forces defeated the Greeks in September 1922, they began a religious cleansing, with executions and arrests sparking mob violence, rape, and pillage.
In a frantic effort to escape, hundreds of thousands of terrified Christians fled to the quay along the harbor in hopes of finding safe passage. The Turks responded by lighting the city on fire. “A half a million people, packed into a narrow strip of pavement, maybe a mile and a half, two miles long, as a giant fire comes at them, basically pushing them into the sea…”
Jennings, a short, mild-mannered fellow with back problems, had managed to get his family on a ship out with other Americans, but he stayed behind in an effort to help several thousand refugees in safe houses along the quay. Horrified by what he saw, he first bribed an Italian ship captain to spirit away the people from the safe houses. Then he hatched an even bigger plan, securing a flotilla of empty Greek merchant ships to save thousands more…
beyond protecting its own citizens, the US government, with growing commercial ties to Turkey [and hopes for buffer against Russia to the north], was unwilling to get involved…America’s top officer in the region, Admiral Mark Bristol, played tennis outside Constantinople (present-day Istanbul) as Smyrna burned.
You can’t seriously believe that the American government acts on a biblical promise to be blessed for blessing Israel. The bottom line is always about money and power.
And exactly as happens to Israel every time, whoever Christian America places her trust in and puts her money on for a defense league will conquer her.
- That is not the United Nations, which depends on America.
- It is not NATO, which also depends on America rather than the other way around.
- It is not the EEC. Americawas paid by England through the Lend-Lease Act to be her ally in World War II, and Germany transferred massive military assets to America after the war in exchange for reconstruction of her economy by America.
- It is not Russia, who was not paid off by America, but instead was abandoned on the Eastern Front to be annihilated. Russia seized booty in both territory and military scientific assets like rocket science on its own to pay itself for its participation in the Allied forces against the Axis powers, and was forced into “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” situation by Germany’s aggression.
All the signs point to the Moslem leg of the Roman Empire.
With Israel attacking Gaza for a second week, United States President Joe Biden and his administration are sticking to a long-established script in Washington, expressing unequivocal support for Israel and its “legitimate right to defend itself” from Hamas rocket attacks…
Former US President Harry Truman was the first world leader to recognise Israel when it was created in 1948… right after World War II, when the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union was taking shape.
The Middle East, with its oil reserves and strategic waterways (think the Suez Canal) was a key battleground for superpower hegemonic influence. The US was taking over from severely weakened European powers as the primary western power broker in the Middle East…
It is a tragic betrayal of faith that Christians have wholeheartedly supported secular Israel’s dependence on America rather than supported Messianic Judaism.
But the one thing we can all depend on America to do is to bail, or fail, in the near future.
Based on patterns of history, the U.S. Army is the current Abomination that causes desolation.
Since President Harry Truman decided to recognize Israel eleven minutes after its declaration of independence, the United States and Israel have had a special relationship, which has evolved over time into a web of military, economic, academic, bureaucratic and personal connections at the local, state and federal levels.
Up until the mid-1960s, State Department and Pentagon officials argued that Israel did not need American arms because it was strong enough to defend itself (as evidenced by the Suez campaign) and had access to arms elsewhere…Israel and the United States signed a secret memorandum of understanding in 1965 that marked the beginning of the strategic alliance with the United States…in 1968…the sale of Phantom jets to Israel…established the United States as Israel’s principal arms supplier. It also marked the beginning of the U.S. policy to give Israel a qualitative military edge (QME) over its neighbors.
The Israelis wisely played up their capability to deter the Soviet Union…They began to reap the benefits of this approach on November 31, 1981, when the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) termed “strategic cooperation…”or the first time, Israel was formally recognized as a strategic ally…
The strategic cooperation agreements…shifted at least part of the focus of relations with Israel from Congress to the Executive Branch.
In 1989, the United States accepted an Israeli invitation to establish munitions stockpiles in Israel for use by the United States…missiles, armored vehicles, and artillery ammunition…
By the end of Reagan’s term, the U.S. had prepositioned equipment in Israel, regularly held joint training exercises, began co-development of the Arrow Anti-Tactical Ballistic Missile and was engaged in a host of other cooperative military endeavors.
Today, these strategic ties are stronger than ever…
In September 2016, the two governments signed a new ten-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on military aid covering FY2019 to FY2028…the MOU provides Israel with a record $38 billion in military aid …grants plus $5 billion in missile defense appropriations…pledges to request $500 million in annual combined funding for joint U.S.-Israeli missile defense programs…
in May 2017…the Trump administration announced it was adding an additional $75 million to the MOU signed in September 2016 for Israel’s missile defense programs…
U.S. General Joseph Votel, the head of the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), made an official visit to Israel for meetings with defense officials in late April 2018. This was the first time that a head of CENTCOM had ever visited Israel on official business…
Congress passed the annual National Defense Authorization Act in December 2020…includes $3.3 billion in security assistance to Israel, and $500 million for U.S.-Israel missile defense cooperation…New in this year’s bill is the…permitting of the president to exceed the current limitation of $200 million on the transfer of PGMs in non-emergency situations.
In first, US establishes permanent military base in Israel
For the first time in history, the United States on Monday established an official, permanent military base in Israel…
Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, head of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Command, announced the establishment of the installation on Monday evening.
“It’s nothing short of historic,” he said…US military forces are routinely based in Israel, both for joint exercises and for routine cooperation with the IDF, but Haimovitch described the new base as a meaningful change.
“We established an American base in the State of Israel, in the Israel Defense Forces, for the first time, with an American flag,” he said.
“when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors…” (Matthew 24:32-36)
This is because every nation that befriended Israel did so for the purpose of getting a land base in the center of the civilized world for its own benefit, not Israel’s, and will invariably sacrifice Israel to their joint enemies in the classic strategy “the enemy of my friend is my friend…when they offer better benefits. ”
most of the military operations launched since World War II have been launched by the U.S.
And American military spending dwarfs the rest of the world put together.
The oligarchs are the only ones who benefit.
“THEN if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is messiah / savior, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false messiahs, 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.” (Matthew 24:23)
Where did the Word tell of this before? In his written word of course.
“Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
That would be Israel’s Knesset.
Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us…
That would be Israel’s reliance on the American military-industrial complex to save them.
Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion – NOT WASHINGTON – for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation – SECURITY – : he that believeth shall not make haste.
Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report…Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong:
for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption /utterly consumed, devastation, even determined upon the whole earth. ” (Isaiah 28:14-22)
That would be World War III – desolation, destruction, devastation of the whole earth.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert;
go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;
believe it not…
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” (Matthew 24:28)
The disciples certainly understood Yeshua haMashiach’s characterization of eagles gathering on a carcase as Roman peacekeepers swooping in on the spoils of war. The eagle was THE emblem of Rome.
And it hasn’t changed. The fourth world empire stands until it is defeated at the second coming of Jesus Christ.
In our industrial age, oil is among the biggest spoils of war.
Oil was not the only goal of the Iraq War, but it was certainly the central one, as top U.S. military and political figures have attested to in the years following the invasion.
“Of course it’s about oil; we can’t really deny that,” said Gen. John Abizaid, former head of U.S. Central Command and Military Operations in Iraq, in 2007. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan agreed, writing in his memoir, “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.” Then-Sen. and now Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the same in 2007: “People say we’re not fighting for oil. Of course we are.”
For the first time in about 30 years, Western oil companies are exploring for and producing oil in Iraq from some of the world’s largest oil fields and reaping enormous profit. And while the U.S. has also maintained a fairly consistent level of Iraq oil imports since the invasion, the benefits are not finding their way through Iraq’s economy or society.
Earlier on Monday, the US army deployed fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the vicinity of the base for security.
The new base will be the fourth in the governorate, and the ninth in eastern Syria.
Having achieved total supremacy, the man in the white hat / riding the white horse, the Leader of the Free World is revealed as the Evil Emperor.
We all know what the Allied forces did in Germany after the fall of Nazi Germany. They raped virtually every woman civilian they could find. Historian Antony Beever himself says that the Allied forces “raped every German female from eight to 80.” He also describes this diabolical activity as “greatest phenomenon of mass rape in history.” This was so great that at least 2 million women were raped, and many of them were raped “as many as 60 to 70 times…”
The Allied forces aspired to morally and psychologically destroy Germany, and one of the best ways they used to humiliate the Germans was rape…
Harry S. Truman hated the Japanese and wanted to treat them like beasts. He said: “The only language they seem to understand is the one we have been using to bombard them. When you have to deal with a beast you have to treat him like a beast…
Sure enough, the Japanese were treated like beasts. One marine colonel told his men: “You will take no prisoners, you will kill every yellow son-of-a-bitch, and that’s it.” There is more. Thomas Goodrich writes:
“Understandably, Japanese soldiers had no more desire to surrender and be tortured than did US soldiers fighting the Indians on the Plains of America a century earlier. Each fought to the finish, but each also saved the ‘last bullet’ for them self. If a Japanese soldier found himself surrounded with no way to escape or kill himself, he committed ‘suicide’ by walking calmly back and forth along the enemy lines until a bullet found its mark. Sometimes ten, even twenty, Japanese would thus kill themselves simultaneously…Not only were there virtually no survivors among the 30,000 men of the Japanese garrison on Saipan, but two out of every three civilians—some 22,000 in all—were either murdered or committed suicide. ‘We just blew it all up,’ admitted one marine. ‘We don’t know if there were women and children or whatever, we just blew them up…’”
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral William Leahy knew that the Japs were treated inhumanely. He said: “It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were almost defeated and ready to surrender. . . . [I]n being the first to use it, we . . . adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages.”
Then there was the rape problem…The following is from historian Thomas Goodrich: Because the great bulk of fighting in the war against Japan was fought on the water, in the air or across islands either uninhabited or sparsely populated, rape is a word seldom mentioned in American war diaries or official reports during the years 1941-1944. When US forces invaded the Japanese island of Okinawa, however, this changed. Almost immediately, and in spite of the bloody fighting, US soldiers began the sexual assault on the females of the island. In one prefecture alone, during a ten-day period, over one thousand women reported being raped. Since most victims would never come forward and voluntarily suffer such shame in a society where modesty and chastity were prized above all else, the number of rapes was undoubtedly much greater than reported…
So pervasive was the crime, and so frightened were the people, that hundreds of Okinawa women committed suicide by swallowing poison or by leaping from the steep cliffs of the island. With their nation’s surrender in August, 1945, Japanese officials were so concerned about the mass rape of their wives and daughters by the victors that they rounded up tens of thousands of girls from poorer families throughout the nation and all but forced them into prostitution at various brothels, or “comfort stations…”
Despite hundreds of thousands of American and Australian occupation soldiers using the rape stations, thousands more preferred taking their sex violently. In the days, weeks and months after the surrender, numerous atrocities were committed as the victors laid claim to the “spoils of war.”
In the spring of 1946, American GI’s cut the phone lines in Nagoya and raped every women they could get their hands on, including children as young as ten. At another city, US soldiers broke into a hospital and spent their time raping over 70 women, including one who had just given birth. The mother’s infant was flung to the floor and killed.
Had Allied occupation commander, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, spent even half the time on stemming rape as he spent censoring news from Japan or running down real or imagined Japanese war criminals, the attacks would have been curtailed. But, like his opposite in Europe, Gen. Eisenhower, he did not.
It wasn’t until 1996 that “U.N. Court, for First Time, Defines Rape as War Crime.”
Failure of any savior other than God’s anointed is inevitable and unalterable because Satan’s promises of empowerment are truly and simply unreal. The difference between holy and evil spirit empowerment is the difference between love and lust.
Love stays committed through good times and bad to support each other. Get it? That means we humans stay committed to Jesus Christ as much as we depend on him to stay committed to us.
“Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, IF we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end…Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, IF we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;” (Hebrews 2:12-14)
Lust stays utterly self absorbed in an unending series of impersonal encounters for a rush of feeling anything to overcome the isolation of disconnectedness they impose on themselves by refusing to give of themselves.
“wars and fightings…come…of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain…Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?” (James 4:1-5)
At least 37 million people, and possibly up to 59 million, have been displaced by America’s “global war on terror” since it was launched by former President George W. Bush’s administration nearly 20 years ago,according to a new report from Brown University’s Cost of War project…
“The US post-9/11 wars have forcibly displaced at least 37 million people in and from Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, the Philippines, Libya, and Syria. This exceeds those displaced by every war since 1900, except World War II,” the report states.
Millions of others have been displaced in smaller conflicts involving US forces in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Niger, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia, according to the report.
