The US Navy’s New Zumwalt-class Destroyer

June 30th, 2014

This post is about the US Navy’s latest warship: the Zumwalt-class destroyer (see first link). Due to its astronomical cost, only three ships of this class are currently planned. It has impressive capabilities, and I’m sure that it has both defensive and offensive weaponry that are not being made known publicly. This description of the Zumwalt-class warship opines that it will be able to use a new rail-gun technology.

My own guess is that it has been designed to operate very closely with the USAF’s new X-37B, an unmanned space-based weapons system that has already demonstrated that it can stay aloft for well over a year during a single mission (see second link).

It is reported that this new warship has been designed to operate near the coastlines of target nations. Ezekiel 38-39 warn that the already-existing alliance of Russia, China, Iran. etc. will eventually attack the USA and its allies in a surprise action at some unknown future time, as readers of my articles already know. If the Zumwalt-class warship ever operates near China’s borders during a war, it needs to be able to defeat salvos of perhaps hundreds of supersonic missiles that might be fired at it simultaneously. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Zumwalt-class warships have a direct interface with the X-37B’s space-borne weapons systems to intercept any ballistic missiles fired at any American warship, military base, etc. Whatever weaponry the X-37B carries, we can be sure it is classified and very likely so advanced it may make science fiction weaponry seem real.

One closing thought. This new warship’s capabilities are impressive to be sure. However, unless it has been built so all its systems are absolutely EMP-proof, it has a fatal flaw. You can be sure any enemy will try to explode an EMP warhead as close to the ship as possible in any future war.

What Charles Darwin Didn’t Know about DNA

June 29th, 2014

When Charles Darwin offered his speculations about the “origins of species” in 1859, scientific technology was in a primitive state compared to today’s society. Darwin essentially proposed that the myriads of species, as they existed in our modern world, were little more than collections of adaptive tissues that evolved accidentally into the species known to the modern world. He had no explanation of how species evolved from generation to generation and no explanation why it was that so vast an array of species, including not only mankind, but also mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, etc. reproduced exclusively via a male and a female union. Creation week’s explanation in Genesis 1, on the other hand, offers a logical explanation  for that reality.

Over time, Darwin’s “theory of evolution” was embraced by a scientific community which did not want to retain God or the Bible in its knowledge. It was prophesied in the Bible itself that such a time would come (Romans 1:28). Romans 1 is a remarkable prophecy about the theory of evolution coming into existence. Paul prophesied in Romans 1:22-23 that mankind would eventually develop a system of beliefs where it “exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles” (RSV). The King James Version translates this verse as they “changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts and creeping things.” These are apt descriptions of what the theory of evolution does. It worships the creation and declares that it came into existence in all its varied wonder by accident without a Creator. The theory of evolution is a good example of  “science falsely so-called” (I Timothy 6:20). It declares as fact something which cannot possibly be proven to be true under the known laws of the Universe.

When Darwin made his fanciful speculations, perhaps he could be forgiven a bit as he had no clue just how complex life forms really were. Once mankind advanced enough to invent microscopes powerful enough to look deep into human cells and discover the double helix of DNA that governs all life forms and species, mankind was without any excuse. Once DNA, RNA, etc. were discovered, scientists were staring straight into the obvious: that all life forms were intelligently “blueprinted” in a complex way that mankind had not previously dreamed. No species came into existence as an end product of adaptive tissues developing under some god-life force called “natural selection,” but rather each member of each species was “blueprinted” individually in a way where each living being inherited chromosomes from its father and its mother. Did scientists acknowledge the existence of a Creator God as the only possible explanation for such complex design-work for every being? No. They denied God and gave him no credit at all. Romans 1:22 describes what happened quite accurately in stating: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

Darwin was a scientist. I wonder if he would have repudiated his theory of evolution if he had known that every living being is individually “blueprinted” to be what it is? There are so many organs, systems and senses of the bodies of physical organisms that are incredibly designed to interact together to sustain and continue life that it is self-evident and obvious that they had to all come into existence at once to exist at all. The interdependence of the internal organs and systems of every living thing demands a Creator. That species reproduce via male-female unions is not explicable via random tissue adaptations, but is only explicable only via a Creator who made all species according to a common blueprint with each species having variations on a theme. Humans can see such similarities in a human designer’s work by being able to tell which buildings were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright or R. Buckminster Fuller or which paintings were done by which master painter by looking for similarities in their style and variations on their themes, but scientists fail to see the same thing in the creative pattern of the Creator God, who utilized all kinds of similarities in making each species. For example, vast numbers of non-insect species have a backbone and appendages off their bodies (wings, fins or limbs) to ambulate themselves depending on whether they live in the air, water or on land. Brains are the central processing unit of each species and their nervous systems transmit the brain’s commands to the body. Organs and senses are very similar for most species. All these are examples of a Creator Being utilizing a basic “blueprint” for life and making variations on his theme via DNA changes to create each individual species. The reality of a master Creator God who is the designer of all life via the DNA blueprints for life is obvious, and Romans 1:20 states that they should be “clearly seen.” However, modern science doesn’t want to believe in a Creator God so they pretend he doesn’t exist. God, rightly offended, gives them over to a “reprobate mind” (Romans 1:28) when they refuse to acknowledge what is clearly obvious.

I’d like to close this post by giving you some information about just one human organ: the brain. I can recall when evolutionists used to think so much of the DNA strands and genetic material were “junk DNA” because they couldn’t figure out its purpose. The first link explains that what used to called “junk DNA” (supposedly “left over” from an evolutionary process) isn’t vestigial at all but is essential to the functioning of the created organism. The second link adds more information about the astonishing complexity of the human brain. How can anyone think that such complexity randomly evolved or that DNA, the brilliantly designed “blueprint for life” also randomly came into existence. I think if Darwin had proposed his theory of evolution at a time when DNA’s true complexity was known, he’d have been laughed out of the classrooms and academia.

The third link is also well worth your reading. It is an article from the February 2014 issue of National Geographic magazine entitled “Secrets of the Brain.” Did you realize that there is a “network of some 100,000 miles of nerve fibers…that connects the various components of the mind…,” as this article notes? Do you seriously think all these connections happened by random?…in every species? There is a caption with one of the initial photos in the article that “blows my mind.” It shows an incredibly elaborate contraption worn on a human head which creates “brain maps” of how the brain functions. The caption to that photo states that the energy used to power that brain-scanning apparatus and its back-up instrumentation requires “almost as much power as a nuclear submarine.” Amazing! That much power just to try and map a single human brain, it is so complex. Allow me to finish by asking a couple simple questions. So you think that this elaborately designed brain-scanner accidentally came into existence by random chance without any designer or engineer, or do you think a nuclear submarine, with all its attendant sub-systems, came into existence by random chance without any architects or designers or workmen? Obviously, only a fool would say “yes.” However, the human brain, an incredibly complex organic computer that is self-aware, is far more complex than an analytical lab machine or a nuclear sub, neither of which is self-aware. Yet students are taught today that the human brain, so complex it is still not fully understood, happened by accident or random chances. Nonsense!

David had it right when he wrote in Psalm 139:154 that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and in Psalm 14:1 that “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.” David was right…and he didn’t even know about DNA’s complexity. Modern mankind knows about DNA’s complexity, and it has no excuse for not confessing and acknowledging the truth that there is no explanation for the creation other than a Creator God.

Photo of a Midianite Well Moses Visited Often?

June 25th, 2014

This post offers an interesting likelihood: that a photo of an ancient well in Northwest Saudi Arabia is a well at which Moses often watered his herds when he served 40 years for Jethro of Midian and it may also be a well the Israelites visited often in their 40-year wandering in the Wilderness after they rejected God’s guidance and protection to lead them into the Promised Land after the Exodus. I saw this photo in an article in the current issue (July 2014) of National Geographic magazine. I found it fascinating as a sidebar to biblical narratives about the tribes of Israel, and I hope that you do as well.

As many readers know, Moses grew up and had great prestige at the court of Pharaoh in Egypt. However, after he killed an Egyptian overseer, Moses had to flee to the land of Midian (modern Northwest Saudi Arabia) where he sat to rest at the site of a well located in Midian (Exodus 2:11-22). Forty years later, God spoke to Moses via an angel in the famous  “burning bush” manifestation wherein God sent Moses back to Egypt to be his messenger to liberate the Israelites’ tribes in the Exodus (Acts 7:30). After the Exodus, the Israelites came to receive the laws of God as they encamped before Mt. Horeb or Mt. Sinai in the land of Midian. Exodus 3:1 refers to Mt. Horeb as ‘the mountain of God.” Many readers, I believe, realize that the real Mt. Sinai is not the mountain called by that name in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, but rather has to be a mountain in the land of Midian in Northwest Saudi Arabia, as Paul notes in Galatians 4:25. Books and DVD video presentations have documented that the “mountain of God” in that region has to be Jabal al-Lawz, a mountain that has many pieces of lingering evidence that the tribes of Israel encamped there, that a rock was split open to provide water to the Israelites, that the top of the mountain remains blackened to this day due to the presence of God’s Holy fire at the top of the mountain (Exodus 19:20-25), etc. [Two books documenting these facts about Jabal al-Lawz are The Mount Sinai Myth and The Mountain of Moses by Larry Williams and an excellent  DVD named Mountain of Fire: The Search for the True Mount Sinai available at www.baseinstitute.org].

The National Geographic issue cited above shows an ancient well in the former land of Midian in an article about Western Saudi Arabia’s history entitled The Wells of Memory (first link). The article focuses on the ancient wells that used to exist in this region. In the second link, there are a number of photos that accompany the published text article in the print-version of the article. The third photo in the options menu of the second link shows the well which includes the following language in its caption in the published version of the article (“For centuries a well at the Al Bad oasis nourished camel caravans and religious travelers. It is now a dry hole. Folklore says that Moses watered his sheep here.”) I think the ancient Arab folklore is accurate.

This well at Al Bad is located in the territory of ancient Midian, which only has so many desert waterholes. Moses had to move his flocks from waterhole to waterhole as grazing vegetation would be limited near any given waterhole. During Moses’ 40-year sojourn in Midian, he surely got to know all the water holes in Midian very well. The ancient waterhole at Al-Bad would have one of those Midianite water holes and I think it all but certain that Moses would have been there often during his 40 years in Midian. There is another key factor that is most interesting. When you compare the map showing the location of the Al-Bad waterhole (see third link) in Northwest Saudi Arabia with a map which shows the location of Jabal al-Lawz, the waterhole shown in the National Geographic article is extremely close to Jabal al-Lawz. Comparing these maps to a topographic map of that region, it appears that Jabal al-Lawz is just east of this pictured ancient waterhole. Indeed, it may be possible to see Jabal al-Lawz from the waterhole, although I cannot say that for sure without being there. At any rate, they are very close to each other so I think it is impossible that Moses did not visit this prominent waterhole in the land of Midian.

Consider that Moses, when he was fleeing from Egypt into Midian, stopped to rest at an unnamed waterhole in Midian (Exodus 2:15). It had to be a prominent waterhole as it was frequented by the daughters of Jethro, a “priest” of Midian, a very high-ranking leader in Midian. What if the ruins of a prominent Midianite waterhole shown on page 86 of the print version of the article in the National Geographic magazine (and also shown in the photo gallery in the second link) was the very well where Moses stopped to rest when he entered Midian, met the daughters of Jethro and met his wife, Zipporah? Forty years later, Moses was leading his flocks in the region west of the wilderness which included Mt. Horeb (Mt. Sinai) when he had his famous “burning bush” encounter with God or an angel/messenger speaking for God. Topographic maps of this region show there is a lowland just to the west of the mountainous wilderness that includes Jabal al-Lawz. That lowland could have had grazing space for flocks and would have included wells for water. This is right in the area where the map of this well’s location is shown in the third link. Moses may have just left the well in the photo in the National Geographic magazine before he journeyed a slight distance to the Jabal al-Lawz mountain and had his “burning bush” encounter.

When the Israelite tribes journeyed to Mt. Sinai, the mountain of God, after the Exodus, they numbered perhaps 3 million people. Exodus 12:37 states that 600,000 men plus women and children and all their livestock left Egypt in the Exodus. This is a massive amount of people and animals that needed water to drink regularly. Exodus 15:22-16:3 records that this mass of people had to move from oasis and waterhole to the next oasis and waterhole and several times God had to save them miraculously by providing water in the desert for them. Since the ancient waterhole shown in the National Geographic magazine article is close to Jabal al-Lawz (Mt. Sinai), the Israelites doubtlessly stopped at this waterhole on the way to their encounter with God at Jabal al-Lawz. The Israelites may have stopped at this ancient desert oasis/waterhole often during their wandering forty years in the wilderness before God allowed their offspring to enter the Promised Land that the Israelites delivered from Egypt had no faith to enter (except for Joshua and Caleb – Numbers 14:1-10).

I hope that you enjoyed this post. It is remarkable how much biblical history involving Moses and the tribes of Israel may have taken place at the very waterhole complex that is shown in the National Geographic magazine article. It used to be an oasis and you can tell from its ruins that it was once a sizable complex of wells and buildings which could supply water to a large mass of people and livestock. It is in the land of Midian and is close to Jabal al-Lawz, the real Mt. Sinai. My bet is that this ancient well is the one mentioned in the Bible so prominently.

There is one other biblical personage who may have stopped at this waterhole/oasis complex as well: the prophet Elijah. After his calling down fire upon a burnt offering and slaying 450 prophets of Baal, everything “went south” for Elijah and he fled to “Horeb the mountain of God” (I Kings 19:8). In other words, he fled to Jabal al-Lawz and the books and documentaries on this mountain confirm it had a cave on its slope which is called Elijah’s cave. I Kings 18-19 describes this entire episode, including how Elijah went 40 days, apparently on foot, to Jabal al-Lawz from where he had been in the kingdom of Israel. The account states he went 40 days on food provided by an angel to him, but he could easily have passed through or by the Al Bad oasis as it was located on the main approaches to Jabal al-Lawz/Mt. Sinai at the time and would have been a well-known location to travelers.

Isn’t it amazing what a single photo can evoke?

Russian Bombers Flew 50 Miles off the California Coast – New

June 24th, 2014

In a clear sign that Russia is reverting to the Cold War USSR’s mindset, a formation of Russian strategic bombers and refueling aircraft flew off the American Alaskan coast and flew as far southward to be a mere 50 miles off the California coast (first link). Additionally, Russian warships and spy ships have made appearances off the USA’s eastern seaboard (second link and third link). These are also a return to Cold War activities similar to what the USSR did. This is bad enough, but China has joined Russia as an active ally (just as the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 foretold would occur in the latter days of our age). The last link reports an incident in 2010 when China reportedly fired a ballistic missile on the west Coast of the USA just off the shores of Los Angeles. This warlike challenge to the USA was not given the proper attention it deserved by the establishment media. These actions should all be seen as provocative actions by Russia and China to see if the current President, Barack Obama, has any backbone or steel in his soul to push back against rival nations. If so, Russia and China have seen Obama lacks the mettle to take assertive action to counter these bellicose Russian and Chinese actions.

I wonder what President Reagan would have done in response to these actions if they had been done during the Cold War? I am only guessing, of course, but I’ll bet he would have responded with an “in-kind” response to show America still has some steel in its resolve. If today’s China had launched a ballistic missile just off the coast of Los Angeles, I think Reagan would have ordered a US submarine to fire a ballistic missile just off the coast of China so it would be clearly visible to all who lived in a major Chinese port city. I have little doubt that if Russia had sent warships and spy ships to positions just off our coastline, he would have sent similar US ships to be stationed an equal distance from Russian port cities like Vladivostok and/or St. Petersburg.

Russia and China must be delighted to have such a weak person in the US presidency as Barack Obama. He has done nothing to counter the bellicose Russian or Chinese actions, and the whole world now knows his “red lines” mean nothing. All nations have seen that, in spite of China and Russia building new weaponry and expanding their militaries, Obama is disarming and downsizing the US military forces. In my opinion, Obama’s actions seem to display a major “disconnect” between the real world and his perceptions of it. This “disconnect” can only portend bad things for the USA in future years. However, it is wholly consistent with the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 that the Russians and Chinese are becoming more armed and militaristic while the USA disarms and weakens its defenses. It invites a war against us to encourage our enemies into thinking we (the USA) are a soft target. Those who wish to see evidence the USA is specifically addressed in Ezekiel 38-39 and other biblical “latter day” prophecies are invited to read my homepage article, The USA in Biblical Prophecy, and listen to my audio messages on the history of the ten tribes of Israel. If you do, you will understand current events and historical events in a much clearer perspective than what you were taught at school.

The Militarization of the DHS and American Police Forces

June 19th, 2014

The American media and columnists are sounding an alarm on an issue that could portend, under a worst case scenario, that America is headed toward a police state kind of existence. The first link is by John Whitehead, the respected head of The Rutherford Institute. It has a detailed analysis of the behemoth bureaucracy and armed force that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has now become. I urge readers to take the time to review his column about the DHS, which he refers to as “a runaway train” that is developing massive people-control databases, distributing and amassing weaponry and ammunition, etc. I think it is fair to say the DHS has become far larger and more potentially invasive toward innocent citizens than Congress ever intended when DHS was created. It was created to focus on anti-terrorism efforts to protect innocent Americans and America’s national security interests, not to manipulate and control innocent citizens. The DHS has become a conduit through which a great deal of military weaponry, armored vehicles and other gear is being directed to local police forces. If this trend continues, an American police state could be imposed by a dictatorially minded US president who might try to issue an Executive Order to federalize all police forces and put them under the DHS to become a kind of American Gestapo. Such an Executive Order would be egregiously unconstitutional and it is an open question how widely it would be obeyed by uniformed forces, but it does  seem that US presidents don’t obey the US Constitution as they should.  Congress appears to be increasingly derelict in its duties to assert its legislative powers to make laws and not allow federal executive agencies to “make laws” via the rule-making process.

Even the establishment New York Times has run an article about the tidal wave of military equipment being sent to local police agencies by the federal government (second link). Many police departments are receiving the MRAP armored vehicles that the US manufactured for the US army in the Afghan and Iraqi wars to protect soldiers against Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). The New York Times article has a detailed listing of the types of military equipment sent to local police departments and a map showing where they have been distributed. It is well worth your reading. The third link is a Google results listing of the many links on the Internet which have stories and reports about the militarization of American local police departments. I did see a report on Al Jazeera America (a cable news television channel) about this issue, and they reported on incidents where militarized Swat teams have apparently killed innocent civilians and acted over-zealously.

Now, I’d like to submit for your consideration another possible reason for the military gear being sent to local police departments. In a post I did years ago, I cited media links wherein the federal government itself was warning about Islamic Jihadi “sleeper cells” that exist in the USA–waiting to be activated in the event of a war where the US gets involved in a war involving Iran, Syria or some other nation. I recall one story that cited a warning from the Jihadis that they could attack in rural areas as well as in urban cities. Such sleeper cells could, literally, be anywhere. If they are ever activated, first responders will be local police departments and then the National Guard units in the various states. Any sleeper cells could be armed with sophisticated weaponry obtained by foreign nations or arms dealers and smuggled into the USA. They could have RPGs, mortars, machine guns, explosive devices, shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft weapons, etc. I’m just speculating here. I hope they don’t have such weapons, but they could. If they do, local police departments can’t be expected to respond to them with mere side arms. They will need the kind of weaponry that the DHS and perhaps other federal agencies are now distributing to them in advance of any crisis. Even the drug gangs in American cities might have major weaponry that the police may have to confront.

On a personal note, decades ago when I was a Personnel Manager for a government agency, I served as the chairman of several hiring panels where police officers were hired. This experience allowed me to get to know high-ranking police officers and learn their perspectives. I also attended the Civilian Police Academy which is offered in my city where police departments allow attendees to have insightful experience with each aspect of the local police department. Current classes allow attendees to fire weapons at the police firing range, but that was not offered when I attended one of first classes years ago. I also worked closely with the local police department in founding a Neighborhood Watch area which was formed to shut down a drug houses and has dealt with other issues periodically. For one year, I served as the “president” of the citywide Sioux Falls’ Neighborhood Watch groups (great title, no salary). These experiences enable me to see things from a government perspective, and governments at all levels have planners and Emergency Service Divisions which make plans for every conceivable situation and disaster that might occur. In the event of a major disaster when I worked in government, I had a role which I would have been assigned to do. Thankfully, no such disaster occurred, but one never knows when such a thing might happen due to a tornado, earthquake, hurricane or other weather disasters in addition to terrorism. At the federal level, government officials plan for every possible contingency as well. There have been many reports of “secret” FEMA camps built all over the USA. There has been such a torrent of information about them on the Internet that they are surely no “secret” any longer. One genre of Internet perspectives is that they are being built to hold captive patriotic Americans, veterans, Christians, “Ron Paul supporters,” etc. Allow me to give another possible perspective, based on my past experience inside a governmental agency.

We have been warned by government spokespeople, “Talking Heads” on TV, columnists, etc. that there is the possibility of a “dirty nuclear bomb” threat being made by terrorists against an American city. No one knows where such an attack might occur, but all regions and cities have to plan for such a thing. What if there is another “Katrina-type” hurricane or the “Big One” earthquake in California that the seismic experts have warned could occur any time. There have been many warnings about a possible EMP event that wipes out electrical service infrastructure. If any of these events happen, where do you put the survivors, refugees, etc. who will flee from a large metro area in the event of such a catastrophe or even the threatened possibility of it happening? It would be a very reasonable emergency plan to build camps for refugees and survivors at locations accessible to metro areas. This would be critical to have in wintertime for everyone’s good.

In summation, the militarization of the police forces may have an ulterior motive to impose a police state. Revelation 13:11-18 warns that an eventual “beast” power will impose controls on all monetary and commercial matters at some point. It can be inferred that control freaks will attempt to control all other aspects of life as well. However, keep in mind we are currently living under the global  “Babylon the Great” system which is prophesied to collapse in the latter days and be replaced by the “beast” system (Revelation 17:9-18) which will reign for only 42 months (Revelation 13:1-5) before Jesus Christ returns to impose his Divine reign on the earth and mankind (Revelation 1911-20:5). The current governments of the earth are tied into the Babylon the Great system. This system is prophesied in Revelation 17 to be overthrown by “seven heads and ten horns” who will wreck the current system with “extreme prejudice” (Revelation 17:16). We do not know who the “seven heads and ten horns” will be. They may be nations and international entities or they could be seven actual leaders of a new system waiting to take power via the “ten horns” who will act in their service. We were told by then-Secretary of the Treasury Paulson that the current banking/monetary system came within hours of collapse in 2008, so we have been warned by a high UIS official that the current system has already stood on the precipice of global collapse. I have a post about the possible biblically significant importance of the year 2015. Please understand I make no predictions myself. I try to analyze modern events in light of biblical perspectives and pass this analysis to readers as long as there is support for this blog. For more information on why the Bible calls the modern global system “Babylon the Great,” please read my articles, The Babylonian Origin of the Modern Banking System, and Is Babylon the Great about to Fall…Ushering in a New Beast System? The first article will likely surprise you as to how accurate the biblical description really is and the second article will examine aspects of how the biblical prophecy in Revelation 17-18 may be fulfilled. Again, I never set dates or years for specific fulfillments.

One last comment. Jesus Christ prophesied in Matthew 24:24 that the final deceptive system [the "beast"] will be so deceptive that even the “very elect” would be taken in by it “if it were possible.” In order for this to be fulfilled, the beast system has to take control of the earth in a way that will appeal greatly to strong Christian believers. I expect its beginning will be benign and welcomed even by Christians at first. There is precedent for this type of thing happening. I’m sure many German Christians voted for Adolph Hitler in Germany’s 1932 election. We do not know who the Beast leader will be, but expect him to come in the guise of a deliverer from the evils of the current Babylon the Great system and the creator of a New World Order. How the militarization of the local American police forces fits into these prophecies, we will have to wait and see.

Computer to be down temporarily – 6/19/2014

June 19th, 2014

This post is to inform my readers that I will soon be unable to use my computer or post to my blogs for an unknown period of time. Our region has had severe storms with tornadoes, hail, flooding, etc, and my home has experienced water damage due to a failed sump pump. My car has also been pelted badly with hail, but that would not affect my computer efforts. Many people in this region of South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota have it worse than me. This water problem affects my office and my computer components and desk will be among the many items disassembled and moved to allow for water remediation efforts to begin. The companies that provide that service are backed up due to thousands of claims so I don’t know when the remediation efforts will begin or how long they will take. As many readers know, I have lived on a disability for decades due to a freak accident caused by circumstances beyond my control. The injuries leave me unable to do what I’d like to do to move and disassemble things to help the repair efforts. I especially need prayers for pain relief in my back, neck and shoulders, and I’d appreciate prayers for healing of tinnitus as well (I’ll bet some readers also suffer from this constant ringing in the ears problem).

Sunni-Shiite Civil War Spreading Fast in Iraq

June 15th, 2014

The intense fighting inside of what used to be Iraq is rapidly turning into a Sunni vs. Shiite civil war that could easily spread outside Iraq’s borders. As I opined might happen in a recent post, Iran, the Shiite powerhouse in the region, has sent its troops into Iraq to militarily bolster that portion of the Iraqi army that is loyal to Iraq’s Shiite central government leader, al-Maliki. The first link reports that Iran has already sent 2,000 of its soldiers into Iraq to bolster the Shiite forces fighting the rapid invasion of ISIL, the very radical Sunni Jihadi group that is seizing control of more of Syria and Iraq. It also reports that a Shiite Iranian commander is now in charge of the defense of Baghdad. The second link is supportive of the information in the first link.

It seems apparent that the rapid advance of ISIL (some news outlets, especially CNN, call ISIL by the name ISIS) was aided by a deep lack of enthusiasm within the Iraqi army to fight fellow Sunnis to prop up a Shiite government that they regard as corrupt and anti-Sunni. There are many reports of Iraqi soldiers abandoning their posts, uniforms and weapons, and some media reports indicate Sunni members of Saddam Hussein’s old military forces were joining the ISIL ranks, assisting their rapid advance.

When the ISIL Sunni Jihadis rapidly took over Mosul, it triggered a humanitarian crisis as upwards of 500,000 more moderate Sunnis and perhaps some Christians fled to the protection of the Kurdish region of what used to be Iraq (third link). The Kurds can hardly shelter so many people. The Kurdish Peshmerga, a highly-cohesive and well-armed military force, moved out of the Kurdish region and seized control of the oil-rich city of Kirkuk to make sure it did not fall into ISIL hands. The fourth link has a good report on the seizure of Kirkuk by the Kurdish Peshmerga. You will note that photographs accompanying the text show Kurdish tanks being brought into the Kirkuk via tank transporters. This indicates the Kurds will be in no hurry to leave Kirkuk. I think it is evident they intend to stay. If I lived in Kirkuk, I would be delighted to have them stay. The Kurdish forces represent stability and the ability for people in Kirkuk to safely stay in their homes and city. The Kurds may have seized Kirkuk not only for strategic advantage but also to protect their own territory from being overwhelmed by refugees from Kirkuk if it had also fallen to ISIL Jihadis like other northern Iraqi cities.

The fifth link reports what happens when ISIL forces seize a city or region. They leave a trail of decapitated bodies, execution-style killings and chaos and destruction in their wake. I saw a BBC report on the American TV network, PBS, that mentioned they had videos of execution-style killings of people by the ISIL Jihadis, but they were too brutal to show on TV. The BBC video did show ISIL forces lining up Iraqis in civilian dress on the side of a road and forcing them to kneel just before their heads were blown off by ISIL gunfire. The BBC video stopped just before the heads were blown off. Those interested in seeing that video can likely find it on YouTube. I did see a text crawler on the bottom of a report on either the BBC or Al Jezeera America that indicated that there were 1000s of murdered and/or decapitated bodies along the roads where ISIL was advancing closer toward Baghdad. Conflicting media reports indicate ISIL is between 60 and 100 miles from Baghdad.

As an aside, I’d like to say that if you can watch the Al Jazeera America cable news network on your satellite or cable-news package, I strongly urge you to watch it. I have found its news coverage to be in-depth, balanced and factual in its presentation. Many westerners may think, based on its name, that it is a network of Islamic propagandists. That assumption could not be more wrong. The on-camera journalists are Americans and westerners and many of them have been hired from other American news media networks. I think it should have been named something like “International Network News” (INN), to better represent what it actually is. It is a valuable “go-to” news outlet.

The situation inside Iraq is very fluid and there are many conflicting reports about what is transpiring. One report has now indicated that Iranian Shiite military forces are now operating so deep inside Iraq that they have helped Shiite forces retake Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown from ISIL forces (sixth link). If so, it means that Iran has sent its military forces in considerable numbers deep inside Iraq and their presence could trigger a wider Sunni-Shiite war.

While Kurdistani forces have been active in the north, Turkey, a Sunni nation, has been strangely passive in these rapidly escalating events. Since approximately 80 Turkish citizens have been kidnapped by ISIL forces (including a top diplomat), Turkey has every reason to invade northern Iraq from the north to rescue its citizens and crush the ISIL military forces. Turkey has been handed a golden opportunity to expand its influence and territory in the region, but so far has not acted on that opportunity. If I had been Turkey’s prime Minister, I’d have invaded northern Iraq two days ago, sent commandos to rescue the Turkish citizens and given orders to my army commanders to wipe out ISIL. I’d also have worked out a side agreement with the Kurds to divide northern Iraq into an agreed-upon Turkish-dominated and a Kurdish-dominated region–which would cooperate in making money for the Kurds and Turks by shipping Kurdish oil via Turkish pipelines to European nations. It is worth noting that as long as the chaos inside Iraq stops or threatens the flow of Kurdish oil to Europe, the big winner is…Russia. Russia, Iran’s ally, would like to keep Europe as helplessly dependent on Russian energy supplies as much as possible so ISIL’s stopping the flow of Kurdish oil to Europe benefits Russia.

Yesterday, I watched a TV program where Fareed Zakarhia, a frequent on-camera analyst and spokesman for the current World Order, was commenting on the Iraqi crisis and, in my opinion, I have never seen him look more worried. I like listening to him, as he is intelligent and analytical. If he is worried, so are the rest of the world’s leaders.

Strangely quiet regarding the Sunni-Shiite war inside Iraq is Saudi Arabia. If Shiite Iran is militarily active already inside Iraq, the Saudis cannot stay out of Iraq for long without a major loss of face to their credibility. I suspect both Turkey and the Saudis are receiving heavy pressure from Obama and the USA to stay out of the situation. You may have seen media reports that the Shiite Iraqi central government, armed and trained by the USA, has been appealing to the USA for airstrikes vs. ISIL. If Obama actually does such a thing, he may make one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency. This action would make him an ally of Iran, which is already supporting the Shiite Iraqi central government with ground forces. If Obama becomes the ally of the Iranians and their puppet leader in Shiite Iraq, Obama will alienate the entire Sunni Moslem world. Then the obvious question will be apparent to all: Whose side is Obama really on? Pay no attention to his words. Just evaluate his actions.

Major changes are occurring in the Mideast right now. Borders are being redrawn, nations are disintegrating while new ones emerge along more-rational sectarian and tribal lines, alliances are being reformed, etc. These are vital developments for us to keep watching.

Iran Boasts It Can Hit Diego Garcia with New Missiles

June 13th, 2014

While the world is distracted with the pressing news about the Iraqi civil war and the exchange of an imprisoned (and dubiously credentialed) American soldier for five Taliban leaders, Iran has made a major announcement. It has declared to the world that it has ballistic missiles with much greater range than the West previously thought possible. Iran specifically has boasted that it can now hit the massive and super-secret American naval/air/intelligence base at Diego Garcia in the depths of the Indian Ocean with Iranian ballistic missiles. [Diego Garcia is an American military and intelligence base in the southern Indian Ocean near where the missing Malaysian airliner mysteriously vanished without a trace, but that is another story.]

Iran’s announcement is examined in these two links [1, 2], one from the American media and the other from the German media. Obviously, Iran is not building a ballistic missile to hit Diego Garcia with a warhead full of leaflets. It would be an enormous investment of money and effort to strike Diego Garcia with a ballistic missile that only has a conventional explosive warhead. Diego Garcia is a very vital American base and it is doubtlessly defended in depth from any conceivable threat–ballistic or supersonic cruise missiles, bomber attacks, etc. One Iranian missile is not likely to penetrate its defenses. The only way there is any logic to the Iranian threat is if their ballistic missiles will have nuclear warheads.

Iran has been stalling the diplomats from the US, the UN, the EU and other western nations for a long time as it pursues its nuclear weapons program. It makes little sense to develop ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads unless you are also making the nuclear warheads. Iran has equivocated about this for a long time as it has bought much time for its nuclear weapons program to be pursued. As one expert observer is quoted in the second link, Iran’s leaders “are not negotiating and never have negotiated in good faith. They are taking us for fools.” I couldn’t agree more. Iran’s leaders have simply been deceiving western negotiators with clever words and occasional partial actions as they pursue the development of nuclear weapons.

In a larger sense, Diego Garcia and other vital American Pacific bases such as Guam are already in a nuclear bulls-eye and have been for many years. Russia and China have doubtlessly targeted these American bases with their nuclear ballistic missiles which would be fired in the opening stages of any future World War III, which the Bible prophesies in Ezekiel 38-39 is certain to happen at the end of this age called “the latter days” or “the latter years” in many biblical prophecies. Ezekiel 38 uses this terminology in verses 8 and 16. Ezekiel 38:2-6 name the nations which will form the latter-day Gog-Magog alliance which will launch a surprise “Pearl Harbor-like” attack vs. the modern nations of the house of “Israel” (the ten tribes–the USA, the UK and many NATO nations, etc.). Iran appears on the prophesied Gog-Magog list in Ezekiel 38:2-6 as “Persia.” Russia appears on the list as Meshech and Tubal as well as Gog and Magog and China can be seen as “Gomer and all his bands.” Gomer is one of the sons of Japheth and this branch of the human family was prophesied to have a very large population (Genesis 9:27, 10:2-5). “Gomer and all his bands” designates a very large Japhethic (Oriental) nation with many tribes or bands within its borders. During the Beijing Olympics, China highlighted how many tribes or bands were represented within its borders. If I recall correctly, China has over 40 tribes or bands within its borders. Geopolitically, China has become a very militarily powerful and bellicose nation as well as an ally of Russia and Iran, unmistakably fulfilling the prophesied role of “Gomer and all his bands” in the modern world.

Russia and China surely have not only nuclear ballistic missiles aimed at Diego Garcia, Guam and other US bases, but their submarines can surface not far from those bases and launch a surprise attack with salvos of cruise missiles. Iran’s new ballistic missiles simply mean these American bases are now threatened by the missiles of three nations in the Gog-Magog alliance. I certainly hope that these bases are heavily defended with layered defenses vs. both ballistic and cruise missiles. If they aren’t, then everything and everyone on those bases will be “toast” when World War III breaks out at some point in a future year. I make no predictions when this war will occur. Personally, I think this biblically prophesied attack is years off yet, but I could be wrong. For a detailed examination of the Bible’s prophecies about World War III, please read my article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveal about a Future World War III. The Bible’s latter-day prophecies have been fulfilled so precisely, there is no doubt a super Creator Being authored these biblical prophecies and is bringing them to pass now. It is bizarre that at a time when the Bible’s prophecies are being fulfilled in the modern world so precisely–proving the Bible is the Word of a Divine Creator–that mankind is so universally blind to this fact. Only those who have read and understood the Bible have their eyes open to what is actually transpiring in world geopolitics.

Iraq Disintegrates as a Wider War Looms Likely

June 12th, 2014

Hang on to your hats, folks. We may be about to witness a major war in the Mideast….again. The radical Islamic Jihadi army known as ISIL (about which I have posted before) has launched a major offensive against the central government of Iraq and the Iraqi army appears to be collapsing before the ISIL onslaught. I urge you to watch the FoxNews report in the first link. It is an excellent presentation on what is happening as the nation of Iraq disintegrates before our eyes. It includes a map showing how much of Syria and Iraq has now fallen under the control of the radical Jihadi ISIL army. ISIL attacked Mosul, Iraq’s largest northern city, and drove out the Iraqi forces quickly. Indeed, the Iraqi forces appear to be abandoning their weapons as they flee, giving considerable US-provided military hardware to the ISIL army. The ISIL offensive is spreading fast as ISIL forces have also occupied Saddam Hussein’s home city, Tikrit, according to recent reports.

The first link reports that the ISIL army, which previously seized Fallujah from the Iraqi government, is now only 70 miles from Baghdad and is driving southward from its new northern conquests. This could turn into a wider war quickly. It may be that the only thing which will save any of the Iraqi central government will be the military intervention of Iran, which does not want to lose its client Shiite ally in the Iraqi central government. Iran could send its Revolutionary Guard forces into Iraq to prop up al-Maliki, the present leader of what is left of the Iraqi central government. However, Turkey may invade the old territory of Iraq from the north. ISIL’s invasion severely jeopardizes the recent oil alliance that was formed between Turkey and what is essentially Kurdistan, in the north of Iraq. If ISIL can cut off the flow of oil from Kurdistan to Turkey to eventual European customers, Turkey and Kurdistan will lose a lot of money and Europe will lose a critical oil supply. Neither Turkey nor Kurdistan desire any such outcome. All Turkey needs is a reason to invade Iraq from the north to wage war on ISIL. Turkey reportedly now has that reason.

The second link, from the Turkish media, reports that ISIL forces have seized 80 Turkish citizens, attacked the Turkish consulate in Mosul, kidnapped Turkish diplomats (including Turkey’s Consul-General) and are holding them hostage. If true, Turkey now has every reason to invade the ISIL-occupied region of Iraq and wipe out the ISIL forces. If Turkey invades from the north, expect the Kurdish Peshmerga military forces to attack ISIL from the east, protecting the Turkish flank and expanding the portion of Iraq under Kurdish control. ISIL denies the kidnapping, but the Turkish government is holding high-level emergency meetings and calling the situation “unacceptable.” Turkish military intervention is possible, as the link notes. Indeed, Turkey has stated that Turkish military intervention is certain if a particular tomb important to Turkish history is attacked. Most interestingly, the second link adds that Kurdish Peshmerga forces intervened to protect at least some of the Turkish consulate staff. This confirms the de facto Turkish-Kurdish alliance that has formed recently.

If Turkey’s military intervenes, will it attack ISIL forces only in the old Iraqi region or will it attack ISIL forces in the territory that once was part of Syria too? We don’t know. The third link reports that Turkey has already built an 800-kilometer fence along Turkey’s southern border to keep the chaos and violence in Syria out of Turkey. If Turkey intervenes, it may decide to wipe out ISIL forces wherever they are.

Turkey is also a NATO member which could quickly result in other NATO members helping Turkish military forces. Perhaps it is only a coincidence that the USA has sent five B-2 stealth bombers to Europe. Two more B-2s have just joined the three already there (third link). If Turkey intervenes in Iraq, perhaps it will receive some major heavy bomber support from US B-2s.

This could quickly develop into a regional war. If Turkey attacks from the north and Iran sends military forces into Iraq to support the Shiite central government of Iraq, Saudi Arabia may intervene as well–sending forces into Southern Iraq to protect Sunni Arab tribes aligned with Saudi interests. Of course, the situation may get resolved and a wider war will be averted. However, the more territory ISIL seizes in the Mideast, the more likely it becomes that surrounding nations will wage war against it. ISIL has become a cancer that is metastasizing in the region. One thing is clear: if Turkey wants to intervene militarily, it apparently has a justifiable reason for attacking ISIL already.

Biblically, what we are continuing to see is the herding of nations and tribes into the final alliance configurations that were prophesied for them in Ezekiel 38-39 to occur in the latter days prior to World War III. Who would have guessed a few years ago that the Turks and Kurds would become allies in the region? It is also worth noting that although the US military decisively won the war when it invaded Iraq under President George Bush Jr. years ago, the US diplomats and political leaders have subsequently just as decisively “lost the peace.”

My thanks to a reader for sending me the third link!

Finnish-Swedish Proposal to Join NATO Alarms Russia

June 10th, 2014

A geopolitical development has occurred in Europe which seems to have been taking place “under the radar” of the news media. Russia found out about it and is so alarmed that they are warning World War III could result from it. What is this event? It is “that Finland and Sweden have made a joint proposal on NATO partnership” (first link). Russia responded to this proposal by stating that Sweden, Finland and the Baltic nations are the most “russophobic” nations in Europe. Did you hear about this on the news?

The second link focuses on Sweden and it includes an observation that Sweden’s military is now so weak that it could only defend the nation for one week in an actual war. It also makes a very interesting assertion without apparently understanding the ramifications of that assertion. It states that Sweden’s intelligence services have been working very closely with the intelligence agencies of the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. It has been a long time since I mentioned this in a post, but these five nations are the members of a “secret” spying alliance known as Project Echelon, which spies on Russia and other potential rival nations (see third link). The global NSA spying programs are connected to project Echelon, as the third link notes.

Those who have read my books, listened to my audio messages at my website about the history of the ten tribes of Israel or read some of my articles already know that these five Anglo-Saxon nations compose the “house of Joseph” in the modern world. They are all “brother” nations with a common language, heritage and values. Genesis 48:1-49:1, 22-26 record the giving of the Abrahamic “birthright” blessing to Joseph and his descendants throughout human history. Joseph’s descendants in the latter days were to be one single mighty nation (verses 17-19) and a “multitude of nations” (verse 19). They were to be a “multitude in the midst of the earth.” In other words, they were to become large nations in the middle latitude zones of the earth. The USA began as the descendants of Joseph’s son, Manasseh, who has become the single great nation (see my article, The USA in Biblical Prophecy) , and the other named Anglo-Saxon nations are all descended from Ephraim, Joseph’s other son. The third link reports that the five Anglo-Saxon nations (composing the descendants of Joseph in the modern world) have their own intelligence-gathering and sharing operation. Apparently, Sweden has joined them in a close association and Sweden and Finland are considering joining the NATO alliance. My books identify Sweden as the Israelite tribe of Naphtali and Finland as the Israelite tribe of Issachar.

Why does Russia fear Sweden and Finland joining NATO? Because Russia, unlike Americans who know almost nothing about world history, knows its European history. If Sweden and Finland get their acts together militarily, history shows they can be formidable opponents. In the Catholic-Protestant wars in Europe during the Protestant Reformation, Sweden’s King, Gustavus Adolphus, led a Swedish army onto the European continent and fought on the side of the Lutherans and other Protestants. The Swedish army won important victories and Sweden’s invasion of the European mainland in behalf of the Protestants may be the reason why some nations in Europe remained Protestant instead of being assimilated back into the Catholic fold. Finland’s history is more recent and that is what really concerns Russia. In 1939-40, the massive nation of Russia invaded little Finland to gobble it up.  The Russians were amazed at what tough fighters the Finns were. The Swedes gave some military supplies to help the Finns, but mostly the Finns were on their own during “the winter war.” The last link gives an excellent history of that war, in which a “tiny nation of riflemen” all but destroyed a massive invading army of Russians. At the end of the war, Finland did have to cede some territory and economic assets to Russia, but the Finns preserved their independence and inflicted a terrific defeat on the Russians on the battlefield. The last link reports the Russian losses were 126,875 dead or missing, 264,908 wounded and about 5,600 captured. The Finns lost 26,662 dead and 39,000+ wounded. The Finns also destroyed 2, 268 Russian armored vehicles without losing any of their own! The reason they didn’t lose any armored vehicles is that they had none in their army. This war had major subsequent consequences, I believe. Adolph Hitler and his generals were watching the very poor performance of the Red Army in Finland in 1939-40. Not long afterwards, Germany launched Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of Russia. It may be that Hitler thought Russia would be an  easy-to-defeat enemy due to Russia’s poor performance on the battlefield in Finland. However, Russian forces fought far better when they were defending their homeland against Hitler’s armies.

Russia remembers very well that Finland, all by itself, administered a stinging defeat on Russian armies in 1939-40. Russia does not want a nation with a history of such military prowess joining NATO. It is not a certainty that Finland and Sweden will join NATO, but as they see Russia growing militarily stronger, they may have no choice. Currently, opinion in Sweden is evenly split with 29% favoring NATO membership and 32% opposing it with 39% undecided (second link).

If Finland and Sweden do eventually join NATO, it will all but complete the unification of all the modern nations descended from the ten tribes of Israel into one military alliance. Most interestingly, Ezekiel 38-39 prophesy that the Russian-led, Gog-Magog alliance will launch a surprise attack against the nations of “Israel” in the latter days (Ezekiel 38:8, 16) just prior to the “presence” of God coming to the earth to intervene in the war (Ezekiel 38:20). This will be World War III and Ezekiel 38-39 directly parallels the “Armageddon” war prophesied in Revelation 19:11-20:4, which also is about Divine intervention in an earthly war. As readers of my books know, the term “Israel” in biblical prophecy indicates the ten tribes of Israel, not the Jews of the house of Judah. When God references the Jews in the latter days, he uses the term, “Judah,” as in Zephaniah 2 and Zechariah 12 and 14. “Judah” is nowhere mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39. Ezekiel 38-39 refers to a latter-day, Gog-Magog alliance of nations invading the nations of the house of Israel (the ten tribes) which could soon all be in NATO.

National leaders ought to take warning from Ezekiel 38-39 that Russia and its Gog-Magog allies intend to invade the NATO nations and their allies in the future. The NATO nations ought to be building up their military forces, but they are so blinded by evolutionary fables that they do not listen to the specific warnings God gave them 2500 years in advance. If the NATO nations of the house of Israel feared God and took warning from Ezekiel 38-39, they would be unbeatable because God gives them so many details about the Russian-led invasion in advance.

My thanks to a reader who tipped me off to the first link.
