IMF Gives USA an Ultimatum – New

April 15th, 2014

This link from The Washington Times, has a very ominous message for all Americans. I doubt very many Americans will be allowed to know about it, however, as the establishment media are not likely to tell them about it. Perhaps readers of this blog in other nations do have media that is reporting on this major development.

The link reports that the 188 member nations of the IMF have given the US government an ultimatum: either cooperate in the termination of the USA’s current dominance of the IMF’s voting rights structure in IMF matters “or else.” Currently, the USA has an effective veto power in the IMF as a vestigial remnant of the USA’s global dominance that existed after World War II when the current system of monetary and financial controls was instituted. The USA was then a global superpower in both military and economic measurements. Today, the USA still has massive military power, but its financial dominance has evaporated. A series of profligate presidencies and congresses have, over several decades, squandered America’s economic and financial strength and have turned the USA into the world’s greatest debtor nation.

The IMF has essentially ordered the US government to “get its house in order” by the end of this year. The IMF has demanded the US government surrender its current dominance in the IMF’s voting structure and transfer considerable power to Russia and China within the IMF’s voting rules in order to reflect the growing weakness of the USA’s global financial position. The USA has so far refused to cooperate in this change and has blocked it from being enacted. However, the IMF ultimatum includes the threat of a “Plan B” if the USA continues to block reforms within the IMF. The article states that the IMF “may make plans to reform the IMF without waiting for Washington.” Since the USA has a veto power over the changes demanded by the rest of the world in the current IMF rules, I take this to mean that the IMF nations could agree to scrap the IMF altogether and form a new global institution in which the USA will be “told” what its voting power will be and the USA will have a greatly-diminished role in the new global financial system. If this happens, the current dominant role of the US dollar will, obviously, be severely downgraded. Indeed, if the rest of the world has to forcibly scrap the current, US dollar-dominated IMF system and institute an entirely new global system of global finance, there may be an unveiling of new gold- and commodity-backed currencies that, combined, will replace the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

The IMF’s ultimatum to the USA is one more possible “trigger” which could fulfill the critically-important prophecy of Revelation 17-18 that the world’s dominant financial/monetary system in the latter days will experience a very traumatic collapse when it is forcibly pulled down by an alliance of “seven heads and ten horns” (most likely nations but that is not absolutely certain) and replaced by a new global system which the Bible calls the “beast” system.

The USA now dominates the world’s financial and monetary system and it has done so since the end of World War II. The US Federal Reserve Board has been the beating heart of the current global monetary system because it creates and controls the supply of US dollars in the global economy. The USA used to manage the world’s economy responsibly, but in recent decades, American governments have propelled the US federal deficit into the stratosphere and the Fed has long had to create vast amounts of fantasy dollars to buy up the troves of US federal debt instruments that would have no buyers unless the Fed created those fantasy dollars to purchase them. The IMF’s ultimatum makes a clear statement that the rest of the world is “fed up” with the USA’s mismanagement of the current system of global finance, and that the current system’s days are numbered. Unless the USA agrees to give up its veto power at the IMF, accept a downgraded role for the US dollar and transfer significant power to other nations such as Russia and China, the IMF will unveil “plan B,” which I’m quite sure the USA will not like at all.

Has the establishment media told you in any detail about this impending crisis? I doubt it. The coming changes in the global financial/monetary system could affect you greatly. What the IMF is threatening to do will particularly affect Americans negatively. I wonder who America’s profligate politicians will blame if this development comes to pass? It is interesting, in my viewpoint, that the IMF delayed its ultimatum to the USA until after America’s congressional election in November, 2014. I suggest you read my article, Should Christians Prepare for Future Hard Times?, for some ideas about how you can personally start to prepare for difficult times that seem to be looming ahead of us.

My thanks to a reader for drawing my attention to this article.

Why Can’t Germany Get Its Gold Back from the USA and France? – New

April 12th, 2014

As the world’s attention has been distracted by such events as the missing Malaysian airliner, the Syrian civil war, the Ukrainian crisis and Russia’s annexation of the Crimea, a huge story has been unfolding beyond the scrutiny of the masses. It is so important that it could eventually rearrange alliances, cause governments to fall, initiate wars, new currencies, etc. This post will give you an insight into this critical development in global finance and its possible impact on the fulfillment of a key biblical prophecy.

The first three and the fifth link below offer comprehensive documentation about this crisis. The crisis is that Germany has demanded its gold back from the US Federal Reserve Board and the Central Bank of France, and it reportedly can’t get its gold back, according to these links. Indeed, the first two links report that Germany may not get its gold back until 2020 and that a year after it made its demand to have its gold physically shipped back to Germany, only 5% of the German gold has been delivered back to Germany. Think for a moment. If the US Federal Reserve Bank and the French Central Bank actually had faithfully held Germany’s gold in a safe custodial site, both the US and French central banks could have shipped Germany’s gold back to it within weeks or months. The first link has an especially in-depth discussion of this crisis in the global gold and monetary markets and it has a wealth of links to even more in-depth examinations of this crisis. The second link reports that the US Fed could only repatriate to Germany a “paltry five tons” even after a year of Germany’s demand for it. The third link offers you a Google list of many links that are available on this story which is not being reported in the mainstream press.

The first link reports that more nations are demanding their gold back or failing to return gold to foreign nations who want their gold back. The list of nations involved with either demanding their gold back or refusing to send it back includes, besides Germany, the USA and France, Romania, Russia, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Venezuela, Ecuador, etc. Reportedly, the US Federal Reserve has refused to allow the Germans to even physically inspect Germany’s gold to see it was even in the Fed’s custody. Again, if the US Fed really had Germany’s gold safely held in a custodial location (as it should), this would be an easy request to grant. Any refusal is tantamount to an admission the gold it not there to inspect. The link also reports that China is becoming the global gold “superpower” as China reportedly is importing and amassing as much gold (and silver) as it possibly can. There are so many internet links documenting that China is engaged in a massive accumulation of the planet’s gold and silver that I’ve included the fourth link for a menu of articles on the topic. One of the top links asserts that as long ago as 2011, China was buying nearly 50% of the world’s gold. It does appear that China is trying to “corner the market” on gold and silver. What does China know about the gold and silver market that is not being told to the nations’ citizenry? I think it is very safe to assume that China does not expect the price of either metal to go down in the future. Indeed, once China has amassed enough gold and silver, it may decide to openly set and control the price of gold and silver on the world’s markets. Some of the links cited (or links within the cited links) predict a gold price of $5000 US dollars/ounce and $100/ounce for silver in the foreseeable future. If this proves to be anywhere close to a factual prediction, one can see why China is amassing as much gold and silver as it can. Nations that have gold and silver would become strong nations and nations that have little or no gold or silver would become the new “third world” of global finance. For a particular bit of global skulduggery in the global gold markets, be sure to read to the end of the link re: the Mali connection.

The final link has two astounding pieces of information. The first is that, reportedly, German representatives were finally allowed by the New York Fed to see a little bit of Germany’s gold (i.e. in only one of nine vaults where it should be held), but didn’t even allow the Germans to touch it. It adds that the tiny bit of gold given by the NY Fed to Germany didn’t have the original Bundesbank stamp markings on the bars, which strongly indicates the gold bars given to Germany were not Germany’s original gold bars. There is a limp explanation by the Fed that the bars had been re-cast, but that would be an utterly unnecessary act if the gold bars were really Germany’s original gold bars (as the article notes). The second piece of information is that the Reserve Bank of India reported that “the paper claims on gold [are] approximately 93 to 1 vs. physical gold that is available in the same year (emphasis added).” The link explains this means that of the 93 people who think they actually own traded gold in a given year, 92 of them don’t actually own any gold at all. I think readers can understand that if all paper owners of gold simultaneously submitted their claims to possess their claims to physical gold, the global gold market would collapse due to defaulted promises and the “shell game” would end.

How does this have a biblical prophetic ramification? It may have a massive one. Indeed, the hidden crisis in the gold market could lead to the direct fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 17-18 that the latter-day global political/monetary/financial system known as Babylon the Great will experience a very hard and traumatic takedown and collapse due to the actions of “seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation 18:1-3 describe this system of the latter-day political-economic elites as being incredibly self-indulgent and corrupt. The prophecy contains a long list of items and commodities in which the trading and buying of them collapses when this prophecy is fulfilled, and the very first items mentioned in the prophesied list are gold and silver (Revelation 18:11-13).

Let us consider a possible future scenario. Keep in mind that I am not predicting this will happen; I’m simply pointing out a plausible scenario which could fulfill the prophecy of Revelation 17-18 . Let us assume that at some future date, the leaders of China and 16 other nations (the seven heads and ten horns) call a press conference and announce something like the following: “Ladies and gentlemen, we have called this press conference to announce a global realignment of the world’s currency and commodities markets. China and the associated nations at this press conference now either own all of the world’s gold and silver or have so many claims via the futures markets at the New York Comex and the London’s Metals exchanges that we now have claims on effectively all the world’s gold and silver. We collectively will now redeem all our futures contracts at these exchanges for actual gold and silver to be immediately delivered upon demand. If sufficient gold and silver (confirmed by assay and bore-testing methods) is not promptly delivered to the representatives of these 17 nations upon demand, these exchanges will be declared to be in default and will become insolvent. Given that we now control all but a small fraction of the world’s gold and silver supplies, and we also have ownership rights to all production from many of the world’s gold and silver mines’ future production, we are now setting the price of these two metals. Our beginning prices for these metals shall be $5,000 US dollars for an ounce of gold and $100 US dollars for an ounce of silver. A new trading exchange shall be established in China for physical settlement of all transactions in gold and silver. Any nation, bank or entity not able to produce “good delivery” of gold and silver upon request will be barred from further participation in these markets. A new trading exchange shall soon be announced for the convertibility of several named global paper currencies into specified amounts of actual gold and silver. Thank you for coming. We will not be taking any questions.”

If such an announcement is ever made at any such future press conference, can you imagine the unprecedented turmoil in all financial, commodity and currency markets within mere seconds of the conclusion of such an announcement? Given the speed of transactions in today’s electronic markets, Babylon the Great’s current global system, based on US dollars, could literally collapse in one hour, just as is prophesied in Revelation 18:17.

Is the Entire Internet Compromised? – New

April 10th, 2014

This post may have immediate value to many, if not all, readers. We all use the Internet for all kinds of activities, so the information in these two links [12] should be read by everyone. It has been reported that the Internet may not be secure at all for financial or informational transactions. There is a major, and apparently long unnoticed, flaw in the encryption programs of perhaps all Internet security systems. The flaw is referred to as the “Heart Bleed” bug, and it is far too technical for someone like me to explain it. However, those readers who are “techies” will likely understand the computer systems flaw that is described in these links.

This security flaw has apparently been undetected for more than two years, and what is especially worrisome is that the flaw or “backdoor” into encryption systems is that “attackers can exploit the vulnerability without leaving any trace (emphasis added).” Given that fact, no one knows who or what entities have been accessing everyone’s personal information, including “email, e-commerce transactions, social networking posts and other web traffic.” This major flaw in encryption security systems was reportedly co-discovered by Google, Inc. and a Finnish security firm.

Those trying to fix this major security breach advise everyone to change their passwords, and I cannot help but wonder if this security breach may have given unidentified hackers a backdoor to all banking transactions, patented corporate records, military and intelligence information, and encrypted communications between world leaders, central bankers and all world leaders of all kinds all over the world for several years at least.

This breach (and especially the information that the unidentified hackers gained via it) may have a great deal of relevance to the fulfillment of biblical prophecies about the approaching fall of the global political/monetary/financial system called “Babylon the Great” in Revelation 17-18. Some unknown parties have been gathering massive amounts of data that the world’s political and financial leaders thought was being sent via secure Internet communications, but, in fact, was being eavesdropped-upon by unknown intelligence gatherers for a long period of time. One wonders if it was the NSA who created and exploited this backdoor to read vast troves of supposedly-secure communications and transactions? Have the Russian intelligence services been exploiting this security backdoor ever since Edward Snowden brought the NSA’s private information files to China and Russia? Indeed, did Edward Snowden gather much of his information via this gaping security “back-door”? Did other intelligence services around the world know about this hidden way to easily spy on encrypted electronic messages and information all over the world? Did the German intelligence services know? Did the Chinese know about this? Did the Israeli Mossad? Did Interpol know about it? Indeed, are there any global spy agencies that didn’t know about this hidden backdoor to scoop up all kinds of encrypted data?

Just imagine what has been learned by the exploiters of this intelligence breach when they accessed the private communications between world political leaders engaged in “hush-hush,” behind-the-scenes deals? Imagine the insider information that has been gathered by accessing the supposedly-encrypted traffic between the US Federal Reserve Board, other global Central banks, all major Wall Street firms, the major stock markets and commodity and precious metals markets all over the world? The axiom, “knowledge is power,” really is true. It may be that the innermost corruptions of the current “Babylon the Great” system have been accessed and documented by many major players in world geopolitics, and these major players may include the “seven heads and ten horns” that are prophesied in Revelation 17-18 to tear down and replace the current political/monetary/financial system which is dominated by the US Federal Reserve Board, the US dollar, major Wall Street, London and Swiss banking and trading firms, etc.

I imagine that there are many people among the leaders of the world’s political and financial communities who may now be terrified that their supposedly “safe” communications weren’t “safe” at all. For the average citizenry, this may mean simply the need to replace all passwords. It may also indicate that the Internet will never be truly “secure,” and that if you want to have safer financial transactions, go back to using checking accounts at banks or buy things with cash. However, for the “movers and shakers” of the world, both those who are open and known and those who are shadowy figures behind the scenes, their innermost secrets and their most corrupt actions are likely now known to whoever has been accessing this previously-unknown “backdoor” to encrypted communications. I suspect that governments and high officials in the public and private sectors may go back to using private couriers to conduct sensitive business or transport key information.

We may not know for some time who gathered all the sensitive information via this back-door which enabled some to gather a treasure trove of sensitive information, but I think it will hasten the fall of Babylon the Great’s system because its innermost corruptions have likely been learned by whoever accessed this electronic “back-door.” For more information on why God inspired the Apostle John to call our modern, “latter-day” global system of politics and finance to be called “Babylon the Great,” I suggest you read my article, The Babylonian Origin of the Modern Banking System.

Israelis to Deploy Lasers on Civilian Airliners

April 9th, 2014

This brief link reports that the Israelis have “successfully completed final testing” on a new laser-based, defense system that will be deployed on civilian airliners to protect against missile attacks. The link does not state how soon all Israeli civilian airliners will be equipped with this missile-defense system, but it does state that tests of this new “sky shield” system were “100% successful.” When deployed, it should make El Al the safest airline to fly.

This is a remarkable technological achievement, but what is really noteworthy is what is not stated in the article. If the Israelis are ready to deploy a laser-based, anti-missile system on their civilian aircraft, does it not make sense that they will also be installing it on any military aircraft large enough to host the system? Certainly, in-flight refueling aircraft, AWACS-type aircraft, cargo aircraft and other larger military warplanes could surely be equipped with this system as well. Indeed, the report doesn’t specify how small the laser-based anti-missile defense system is, but could it also be installed on F-16 and F-15 aircraft as well? If it can’t be installed internally on a fighter jet, can it be installed as an external package attached under the wing of Israeli warplanes? If so, could perhaps one F-15 or F-16 be equipped with such a laser-defense system and have it protect a flight of other IDF warplanes which would fly in a tight formation with normal weaponry but would be protected from land-based missiles by flying adjacent to the laser-equipped plane?

There are many military applications for a ready-to-deploy laser weapons system. Can the laser weapons system be mounted on tracked Israeli army vehicles and adapted to attack the armored vehicles of enemy forces? Indeed, if it can be mounted on a mobile platform like a tracked armored vehicle, this new anti-missile, laser system could be used to shoot down missiles if fired at Israel by Hezbollah in any future war.

I fully expect that the Israelis will not limit the deployment of a laser-based, anti-missile system to the protection of just its civilian airliners. This new technology has all kinds of military applications. The ones I’ve mentioned above are merely the obvious ones. I’m sure the resourceful Israelis will think of all kinds of ways this new technology will be militarily useful.

Federal Judge Orders ATF to Obey US Constitution

April 6th, 2014

In an important judicial ruling that pertains to Americans, but will likely interest readers in other nations, a US Federal Judge ordered the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to obey the US Constitution in its enforcement actions. The first link on this topic is from the USA Today, and the second link is from a report at the website of the American Bar Association (ABA).

US District Judge Otis Wright called a particular ATF practice (which sounds a lot like what used to be called entrapment), “outrageous” for fighting “made-up crime.” In his stinging rebuke of the ATF, Judge Wright wrote: “The time has come to remind the Executive Branch that the Constitution charges it with law enforcement–not crime creation… [this ATF practice] makes the Government the oppressor of its people.” Wow! That is strong language!

In a time when there are growing concerns about the USA’s Executive Branch overstepping its Constitutional authority (i.e. the NSA’s massive “spying on innocent people” program and the ATF’s previous “Fast and Furious” fiasco where the ATF became a gun supplier for Mexican drug gangs), many Americans will cheer the ruling by this Judge that reminds the US Executive agencies that they must obey the US Constitution in their actions. I hope many other Federal Judges read Judge Wright’s decision and apply the same Constitutional standards to all Federal Agency actions. The ATF has long been regarded by many gun-owners in the US as wanting to restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of US citizens to own and use firearms for self-defense purposes as well as hunting. Many US gun-owners will surely cheer this ruling as well to prevent this unconstitutional practice being used against American gun-owners.

Revelation 13 prophesies that an evil global system of government called the “beast” will eventually come into being during the latter days of our age and that it will have the power to control global financial transactions (verses 16-17). The NSA’s global spying program, whatever its original intentions, will likely be used by the beast system to not just monitor, but control the financial activities people of the earth’s nations. It is good to see that there are still some Federal Judges who are acting as “brake pedals” to the steady trend toward Federal Executive Branch over-reach. Any preservation of Constitutional liberties by the Federal Judicial Branch slows the development of the authoritarian beast system and could even limit its ultimate powers.

Israel and India to Build Joint Missile Defense System

April 6th, 2014

Israel and India have joined forces to build a ballistic missile defense system for India to shoot down Pakistani and Chinese ballistic missiles fired at India (first link). Israeli technology will aid the construction of the Indian missile defense system, but any secrets learned in the program will surely be shared by both nations. India has a great need for a quick-response missile defense system because Pakistan and China are so close to India.

This Indian-Israeli alliance inevitably draws India closer to the western bloc of nations as Israel is part of the western alliance although they are not technically a part of NATO. Israel has long been an ally of the USA although that alliance has been greatly strained under the Obama administration. Germany and Greece (both NATO nations) have become close Israeli allies in a variety of ways. Greece allows Israeli warplanes to practice long-range missions over Greek airspace, and Germany has built the Israeli nuclear-capable Dolphin submarine fleet. Both Greece and Germany have had high-level state and military visits to Israel.

India is being drawn closer to the West by sheer necessity. Increasingly threatened by a militarizing China and a nuclear missile-equipped Pakistan, India must gain strong allies as counterweights to the Chinese-Pakistani alliance that threatens India. India has drawn closer militarily to the USA and other Pacific Rim nations who are also threatened by China. That Israel and India are entering a very important joint military development project strengthens this trend. My article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III, indicates that the growing alliance of the West to India, Japan and other “young tiger” nations such as South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, etc. was prophesied over 2500 years ago in Ezekiel 38. That the global alliances are coming together just as Ezekiel 38 prophesied for the “latter days” confirms that only a Creator Being could control the destinies of nations to make such ancient prophecies come true at their appointed times. God’s ability to do this is proclaimed openly in Isaiah 41:21-26 as a sign of his Divine sovereignty over the nations.

In a related note, Israeli technology has developed a very high-tech, short-range defense system which can “swat down mortars like flies” (second link). Combining this anti-mortar defense system with the already-deployed Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, the Israeli military is preparing very aggressively to have its defenses in place whenever the next war occurs involving Israel. That attack is most likely to come via a mass mortar and missile attack by Hezbollah and Syria from southern Lebanon when/if Israel and Iran exchange blows over Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

This growing Israeli-Indian military cooperation program will doubtlessly be of great help to both nations.

Archaeology Confirms 50 Real Biblical People

April 3rd, 2014

The current issue of Biblical Archaeology Review has an article that readers of this blog should find interesting. The article lists at least 50 famous and not-so-famous biblical persons whose existence has been confirmed by archaeological discoveries. The list is growing as more excavations are funded and implemented.

This article should boost the faith of all Christians (and Jews) as the discovery that growing numbers of biblical personalities really lived boosts the secular credibility of the Bible’s narratives. While the article does not discuss the number of biblically-mentioned cities that have been confirmed by archaeological discoveries, that list is also growing as more “tells” are being excavated and matched with biblically-mentioned cities. As more biblical personalities and cities are being confirmed by archaeological discoveries, the historical credibility of the Bible’s narratives is growing steadily. Obviously, if no biblical persons and cities could be independently verified, the credibility of the Bible’s accounts would be called into question and one would have to take the Bible’s accounts “on faith” alone. However, that is not the case. We know that many biblical persons and cities really did exist.

Many of the Bible’s kings of Israel and Judah have been confirmed as real rulers by the historical tablets unearthed in Mesopotamia-especially in the archives of the Assyrian Empire. The Bible also mentions the rulers and emperors of various gentile kingdoms and empires whose existence is known to be real. One of the most prominent biblical persons to be confirmed archaeologically as a real person is King David of the United Kingdom of Israel before the Israelite tribes divided into two warring kingdoms. He is referred to as the founder of the dynasty of kings referenced by the term “House of David,” confirming David’s reality and his founding of a dynasty. Keep in mind that King David’s reign was so far back in antiquity that David’s reign was “ancient history” by the time Julius Caesar was born! Many biblical narratives are about persons who lived so many millennia ago that it is incredible that accounts of them can be found at all. As an aside, I’ll add that the reality of other ancient biblical persons is confirmed in the oral history of various nations. For example, Abraham and Ishmael’s reality has been solidly confirmed by the long-standing oral histories of the Arab nations, who maintain (quite accurately in my view) that they are the descendants of Abraham via Ishmael.

The Bible’s narratives indicate that the Assyrians had an evident vendetta against the Israelite kingdoms, and that they were determined to continually invade the Israelite kingdoms until they had destroyed them. The prominence of the Israelite kings in the annals of ancient Assyria supports that viewpoint. My books offer a reason for this Assyrian vendetta against the Israelite kingdoms. In I Chronicles 19, the Bible records the events of a great war that occurred during the reign of King David. That war was started by the Ammonites who were actually acting as agents provocateur for the Mesopotamian kings–over which ruled the Assyrian King. The Assyrians and their royal Mesopotamian vassals were expecting an easy victory over the Israelite army. They were so overconfident that they came personally to watch the battle (I Chronicles 19:9), only to have to hurriedly retreat when the Israelite army prevailed. David’s domain had already reached the Euphrates River before this war began (I Chronicles 18:3), so it was only a short distance for David’s reinforced and fully-mobilized Israelite army and his vassals to march into the heart of the Assyrian Empire and occupy it. Secular records confirm that a Semitic army coming from the west overran and occupied the Assyrian Empire during the reigns of Kings David and Solomon of Israel. The later Israelite civil war that depleted the military power of the Israelites allowed the Assyrians to rebuild their power and finally conquer Israel after many wars and invasions. My books, The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel and Israel’s Lost Empires, as well as my E-book, The “Lost” Ten tribes of Israel…Found!, offer many secular historical sources which confirm the above assertions. The real extent and power of the United Kingdom of Israel has been forgotten and has been deleted from ancient history texts, but, combining many ancient secular records with biblical narratives, the exciting truth can easily be reconstructed. It is one of the most remarkable wars in ancient history, but you will read about it only, to my knowledge, in my books.

For a complete list of the biblical personalities whose real existence has been confirmed by archaeological evidence, please read this link. I think you will find it quite interesting. As more archaeological digs in the ancient Holy Land are implemented, expect this list of confirmed biblical personalities to grow.

Modern “Levitation” Technology Now Real

April 2nd, 2014

The first link demonstrates how modern scientists are now able to “levitate” small objects via the use of focused sound waves. It is really a quite extraordinary video-clip and it indicates one more example of how “science fiction” is becoming “science fact.” This cancellation of the force of gravity via sound wave focusing is really quite remarkable! It shows that the levitation technology works using liquid droplets, plastic objects and metallic objects.

Doubtlessly, the real extent of the development of this technology is not being revealed. Personally, I believe that the technology is far more advanced than is publicly being acknowledged via this video link. I wonder how large the objects are which can already be “levitated” in secret laboratories around the world. This confirmation that levitation technology already exists confirms several biblical prophecies. In Genesis 11:6, God observed that mankind had already reached a technological tipping-point approximately four millennia ago that it could do anything “which they imagined to do.” This was at the “tower of Babel” incident where God confused the languages of all mankind to divide them into separate nations and cut off their access to any pre-Flood technology that was accessible via the pre-Flood language and written materials they then had. To gain more insights into how technologically advanced mankind then was, I invite you to listen to my audio message, As It Was in the Days of Noah. The post-Flood but pre-Babel generations of mankind had access to all the pre-Flood technologies and were attempting to rebuild them on the earth, in my judgment. Matthew 24:37 cites a prophecy by Jesus Christ that the latter-day period of mankind’s history just prior to his return from heaven would mirror the pre-Flood world of Noah. We can gain insights into what pre-Flood mankind could do by understanding the technologies that post-Flood mankind were trying to rebuild. God saw that post-Flood mankind was very close to rebuilding all the pre-Flood technologies, and the only way to stop them was to cut off mankind’s access to pre-Flood knowledge. That was accomplished by God’s “downloading” new languages into the minds of every human being on earth at Babel. To put it in modern parlance, God downloaded a new “language software” program into the brains (the “hardware”) of every human being then alive. Obviously, nations formed amongst the people who could speak the same language.

The new levitation technology also fulfills Daniel 12:4 that “knowledge shall be increased…at the time of the end” (verse 1). This is similar to biblical prophetic language referencing the “latter days” of our current age before Divine intervention occurs. It is easy to read over this phrase and not appreciate its meaning. The Hebrew word used from which the English word “increased” is derived is the same Hebrew word used to describe how the waters at the time of Noah “increased” on the earth (Genesis 7:17). This prophecy means the knowledge levels of mankind in the latter days will be increased exponentially in the latter days, even as the waters of the earth increased exponentially upon the earth in the time of Noah. In other words, there will be a global “flood” of knowledge in the latter days. This is happening before our eyes all the time.

I’m sure that readers are aware that there are many megalithic structures around the world that modern scientists have no idea how ancient mankind was able to cut, transport and move these giant stone blocks flawlessly into place. Such structures include Stonehenge, the Egyptian pyramids, various megalithic sites in South America, etc. Ancient mankind was obviously able to move and place monstrously heavy stones that modern mankind could not do at present. This confronts us with the very uncomfortable conclusion that modern mankind was far more advanced technologically than is modern mankind. The second link shows photos of some almost-unbelievably large and heavy megalithic structures in a wall recently found in remote Siberia. Notice in the photos the tiny human being standing in the photos for scale comparison. Since the Flood destroyed everything on the surface of the earth, the megalithic structures on the earth had to be built by post-Flood mankind but prior to God’s cutting them off from all pre-Flood knowledge by changing everyone’s language. Perhaps these large megalithic structures were moved by a very advanced “levitation” technology that could cancel out the force of gravity long enough to place them into their desired position.

The “levitation” technology achievements in the first link may mean an advanced form of acoustic resonance of some kind moved these ancient megalithic stone blocks, however, I’d like to propose a second theory. The earth’s magnetic fields have tremendous power in them and they flow throughout the earth via “ley lines.” You can feel the power of magnetic force by trying to push two small magnets together when their same polarity points are facing each other. The repellent force is very strong. Giant magnets lift scrap metal all the time. If ancient civilizations were able to focus the earth’s own magnetic fields in such a way that they could exert a repulsive magnetic force underneath a megalithic block in a quarry sufficient to cancel out equally the force of gravity upon it, they could effortlessly move the megalithic block into its desired position and then “drop” it into place by switching off the mechanisms that focused the magnetic forces holding it up. Again, this is only a theory. Unquestionably, they did have a technology which enabled them to move gigantic stones that modern mankind’s technology could not yet do.

The uncomfortable conclusion is that modern mankind has not yet caught up to the technological levels exhibited by ancient civilizations in the megalithic structures they left behind. The development of “levitation” technology shows that modern mankind is making significant strides in catching up to ancient civilizations’ technologies–fulfilling Genesis 11:6, Matthew 24:37 and Daniel 12:1-6. 

I’d like to express my appreciation to the reader who brought one of the links to my attention.

Germany Heading for “Serious Confrontation with USA”

March 31st, 2014

There is a very serious development occurring within the western world and NATO that the American establishment media are not covering. If they are mentioning it at all, I have not seen it. The issue is, according to this link, that “Germany is steering towards a serious confrontation with the US.” This report comes from the German mainstream media so you can be sure Germans and Europeans are well aware of this impending breach between the USA and Germany.

The impending breach is due to the incredibly intrusive policy of the Obama administration having its NSA spy on not only all Americans domestically, but on, apparently, everyone else in the world too. News media reports have reported that the NSA spied on the private cell phone of German Prime Minister Merkel for many years. If so, this policy of spying on Germany’s leader may have begun under the Bush administration. Reports have also revealed that the NSA spied on millions of German and French citizens as well as many people in nations all over the world. A recent post focused on reports that the NSA can target a nation overseas and capture all of its phone records. If it can do it against one nation, what is to stop the USA from doing it against all nations on an on-going basis?

This link reveals that the USA’s intrusive global spying efforts are uniting the various German parties within its Parliament against the USA. Indeed, the “stubbornness” of the USA in not responding to Germany’s diplomatic questions about the NSA’s clandestine spying actions is clearly making the crisis worse, and is making the USA look even more the villain in global geopolitics. American Secretary of State Kerry attempted to sweep the matter under the rug by saying, “Let’s turn the page” on the matter. Fat chance! Such a dismissive response by Kerry to the very deep and relevant concerns by Germany can only anger the Germans even further. One German Member of Parliament said the “Iraqi war was tiddlywinks compared to our relations suffered through the NSA affair.”

This link also cites France’s President Hollande as returning “empty-handed” from the USA after his effort to arrange a “no-spy” agreement between the USA and France. In a display of what I believe the world will view as preening arrogance gone wild, US President Obama declared the US will recognize no “no spy agreement” with any nation. That means that the Obama administration intends to spy on everyone everywhere whenever it wishes. That is a policy that will soon leave the USA with no friends in the world. It’s too bad the US presidential elections are so far away. The USA badly needs a new president who will repair relations with the world and act in America’s recognized interests. Alienating the entire world and all our allies is not in the best interests of the USA.

Germany is also reportedly close to establishing a counterespionage office to protect itself from the USA and to spy on the US in return. Indeed, the link reports that Germany may soon put the USA on a level with China, Russia and North Korea in terms of being an intelligence threat. Germany may be about to treat the USA as an untrustworthy nation and the NSA in particular as a modern electronic version of the Nazi Gestapo or the East German Stasi.

All this is very bad news. It seems that this German-American breach is being caused entirely by the Obama administration and the US government. There is no indication that Germany is responsible for this breach. This breach is certainly wider than just between Germany and the USA. The out-of-control NSA spying and the Obama administration’s dismissive attitude toward justifiable concerns about it is certainly alienating much of the world, whose nations are doubtlessly watching the growing German-American breach with the same concerns as the Germans.

I’m reminded of the scripture in Luke 12:2-3 that “there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed…that which you have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.” The Obama administration is now learning the truth of this biblical promise by Jesus Christ. The US government thought its advanced NSA spying effort against all nations would remain a tight secret, but the Edward Snowden defection made all of Obama’s NSA spying efforts to be “proclaimed upon the housetops” of the global media. It may be that the Obama administration’s most serious secrets are yet to be revealed by Russia from the voluminous pile of NSA secrets brought by Snowden to Moscow.

I believe that the growing anti-Obama, anti-NSA anger that is clearly building among other nations will increase. It is entirely possible that much of the NSA’s spying efforts vs. Merkel and other global leaders was focused on looking for financial/monetary communications between global leaders to detect efforts to dethrone the US dollar, the dominance of the US Federal Reserve Board and Wall Street, adopt gold-backed currencies, sever the US dollar link to the petrodollar market, etc. Given that the duplicity of the Obama administration towards its allies has now been openly revealed to all, those types of anti-American economic/monetary actions are almost surely going to be hastened and accelerated. This entire development is almost certainly going to hasten the fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 17-18 about the collapse of the prevailing global economic/monetary system in the latter days and its replacement with a new global system. This tearing down of the prevailing (i.e. US dollar-based) economic/monetary system that will be spearheaded by “seven heads and ten horns” is prophesied in Revelation 17:16 to occur with something that in modern terminology would be characterized as “great prejudice.” The revelation that the Obama administration has been spying on innocent Americans, foreign leaders and massive numbers of foreign citizens has created a global and domestic backlash that is likely to be much stronger than anything Obama, the NSA or Kerry ever imagined. We may see shocking events unfold and global alliances change in a way that most uninformed Americans cannot now imagine. This trend may already be evident. It may be that the Obama administration is having such trouble arranging any coordinated response to Russia’s annexation of the Crimea is because the credibility of the Obama administration is likely close to zero among world leaders and nations about now.

NATO Alliance Too Weak to Challenge Russia

March 29th, 2014

When the Soviet Union collapsed over two decades ago, the nations of NATO assumed that the Russian bear had been permanently removed as a threat and they embarked on steady disarmament plans that caused their military forces to now be a mere shadow of what once existed in the NATO alliance. Today, the NATO nations are having to confront a militarily-stronger and reawakened Russia and they find themselves in no condition to challenge (or even resist) Russia. The Ukrainian crisis has shown a light on just how weak the NATO alliance really is.

The first three links detail the worries that are now spreading throughout Europe about their current militarily-weakened condition. The worries are particularly acute in the Eastern Europe and Baltic nations which were once imprisoned within the USSR or the Warsaw Pact alliance. The first link offers insights into how weak some European nations now are compared to where they used to be, and the second link cites the Polish Prime Minister as stating the Ukrainian crisis is a reminder of the time when Hitler and Stalin has designs on European territory. 

The Russians have amassed a large military force on the Ukrainian-Russian border. The question is whether that force will invade Ukraine and absorb the eastern provinces of Ukraine into Russia, as was done in the Crimea. I think there is no question that if Russia decides to invade the Ukraine, the Ukrainians will lose the war. Indeed, the real question is, given the pathetic weakness and lack of readiness among the NATO nations for war, could the Russian forces be stopped anywhere east of the Rhine River if they just kept going until serious military resistance was met?

In a way, Vladimir Putin has done the USA and NATO a favor. Before Putin invaded and annexed the Crimea, the USA and NATO were almost comatose about their military weakness. The USA, in particular, seemed to be laboring under a delusion that the old-fashioned wars of tank-heavy combat forces were over. Now, that is exactly the kind of war which NATO faces on its eastern borders with Russia. President Obama had been considering the reduction of the US army by about 100,000 soldiers, cutting it to its lowest level since before World War II. Similar large cuts were planned for all US military branches. Obama was also going to mothball the A-10 “warthog” warplanes, which are the most effective planes in the world for killing tanks and armored vehicles and giving soldiers on the ground close air support. The Russian seizure of the Crimea and the revived prospect of Russian tank armies invading Europe in the future now make the retirement of the A-10 attack warplanes a very foolhardy move. Indeed, Obama can easily cut the size of the military budget by downsizing the numbers of the Department of Defense’s civilian employees and its “special contractors.” Both of these categories are incredibly bloated, as previous posts have documented. DOD expenses will also drop significantly because the USA will at long last not be involved in a foreign war after the US forces are withdrawn from Afghanistan, so no funds will be needed to sustain wartime operations.  The USA needs very much to rest its war-weary troops and build up its military forces to confront the rapid military build-ups of China, Russia and Iran. China’s military build-up is especially rapid and is designed to defeat the USA in a conventional war. Russia is particularly aggressive, gobbling up the Crimea and also seeking military bases in eight nations around the world to project Russian power globally more than it did in the Cold War (fourth link). Three of the nations where Russia is seeking military bases are in the Western Hemisphere where they could more directly threaten the USA itself.

Hopefully, the US Congress will sufficiently come to its senses to not approve the massive disarmament program Obama wants to impose on the US military. One would have to have their head stuck firmly in the sand to vote for such a disastrous downsizing of the US military when our military rivals are rapidly increasing their military forces and displaying a willingness to use them.

The relative sizes of the military forces in the Western and Eastern blocs are a key factor in the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy about the Gog-Magog alliances’ eventual prophesied invasion of the western nations and their allies. The more militarily weak the USA, NATO and other western nations become, the more they invite the eastern bloc alliance to see them as easily-conquerable prey.
