Ending Financial Chaos Part 2

Ending Financial Chaos - Part 2

"Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes." (Haggai 1:6)

As brought out in the last Pastor's Report, in Germany in 1923 a 5 million Mark coin would have been worth $714.29 in the January of that year, but only around one thousandth of one cent just nine months later. Quite literally a wheelbarrow full of old money was needed to buy a single loaf of bread! In nine months! What are the circumstances that brings about such horrendous inflation that money becomes virtually worthless? That brings nations to their knees due to unrepayable debt? Physical events like natural disasters can play a part, but in the end, it all comes back to being a spiritual problem.

The South Sea Bubble:

Certainly moneymaking scams have been part of the problem and are far from being only a recent trend. All throughout history one objective keeps cropping up – how to make money quickly. And one such moneymaking scheme which has achieved universal notoriety is known as the South Sea Bubble, which took the whole of England by storm in the early 18th century:

In 1720, in return for a loan of £7 million to finance the war against France, the House of Lords passed the South Sea Bill, which allowed the South Sea Company a monopoly in trade with South America. The company underwrote the English National Debt, which stood at £30 million, on a promise of 5% interest from the Government.

Shares immediately rose to 10 times their value, speculation ran wild and all sorts of companies, some lunatic, some fraudulent or just optimistic were launched. For example; one company floated was to buy the Irish Bogs, another to manufacture a gun to fire square cannon balls and the most ludicrous of all “For carrying-on an undertaking of great advantage but no-one to know what it is!!” Unbelievably £2000 was invested in this one! The country went wild, stocks increased in all these and other ‘dodgy’ schemes, and huge fortunes were made. Then the ‘bubble’ in London burst!

The stocks crashed and people all over the country lost all of their money. Porters and ladies maids who had bought their own carriages became destitute almost overnight. The Clergy, Bishops and the Gentry lost their life savings; the whole country suffered a catastrophic loss of money and property. Suicides became a daily occurrence. The gullible mob whose innate greed had lain behind this mass hysteria for wealth, demanded vengeance. The Postmaster General took poison and his son, who was the Secretary of State, avoided disaster by fortuitously contracting smallpox and died! (historic-uk.com)

Today, if anything, it is even easier to defraud, by appealing to the greed involved in "get rich quick" schemes. This is because of the computerisation of financial packages and even the money supply itself, together with the ubiquitous nature of the internet. Nothing illustrates this better than Dr. Ruja Ignatova's cryptocurrency scam 'OneCoin'. Using the success of Bitcoin, she was able to persuade investors all over the world to part with their normal money to invest in the electronic OneCoin instead. By the middle of 2017, OneCoin had reached 175 countries pulling in somewhere between 4 and 12 billion pounds of investment from around a million people. Key to her scam was the promise of being able to sell the coins for real money on a promised public exchange, becoming rich in the process. However, the reality was anything but, as "The Week" magazine of 11th January 2020 explained:

"The exchange, however, never seemed to open. There was always a reason for a delay – perhaps an IT quirk, or a minor legal issue. Investors started to get jittery. In October 2017, Ignatova was scheduled to speak to a large audience of OneCoin investors in Lisbon, to tell them when they would finally be able to get their money out. She is famously punctual and when she didn't arrive on time, panic started to spread. Frantic calls went unanswered. Some wondered if she had been kidnapped by the traditional banks.

"Ignatova never arrived, and no one has seen her since. Her 'revolutionary' cryptocurrency was, in fact, an old-fashioned pyramid scam... Although many investors held what they believe were millions of dollars worth of OneCoin, they had actually bought into the digital equivalent of Monopoly money". (see also: bbc.co.uk)

Unfortunately virtually ALL currencies today have little of tangible value supporting them – leaving themselves all too open to potential catastrophe. The degree of debt involved is truly staggering – with the US indebtedness currently standing at over $23 trillion dollars – a significant slice of the $188 trillion global debt, a figure which is over twice the size of the entire world's economy. So how are such things going to be avoided in the soon coming Kingdom of Jesus Christ? The curse of devaluation and indebtedness cannot co-exist alongside the future Utopia, so how is this age-old problem going to be handled? Does scripture give us any clear indications?

Boom, Bust and Bubbles

As you can see, such problems of boom and bust are far from new. Throughout history different areas of the world have suffered times of financial collapse and upheaval of varying degrees, many times due to unrealistic speculation, resulting in what we call a "bubble"... the South Sea Bubble being the first use of the term. But the foundation of such bubbles go much deeper – lying in reality within the very heart of mankind... and the greed that is part of what we call human nature. Even Lucifer – the most splendid spirit creation – was not content with what he had been given, but wanted more and has instilled this dissatisfaction in men's minds from the Garden of Eden until today.

  • After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it.
  • So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
  • But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction.
  • For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. (I Timothy 6:7-10 NLT)

So boom and bust actually originates from a spiritual source: The satanic broadcast that all mankind is unwittingly tuned into leads us to wanting more and more and more – and cheap – not caring who has to work for a pittance to provide it, or who could get hurt in the process. As day follows night, such an incoming, selfish attitude results first in a boom phase, followed inexorably by personal debt, then national collapse and upheaval... which in turn has historically been followed, inevitably, by war.

No Flesh Saved:

The problem with such boom and bust cycles currently is the potential scale and nature of the modern warfare that will inevitably follow. Without Christ's intervention, the next global conflict would literally erase all life from the planet. Prophetically therefore, what we currently see unfolding in the economic sphere appears destined to lead eventually to the greatest time of trial and misery this world has ever seen or will see:

  • Ask now and see: Can a man bear children? then why do I see every strong man with hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale? How awful that day will be! None will be like it. It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it. (Jeremiah 30:6-7 NIV)

So the question is - what will Jesus Christ then do to stop this inevitable cycle of boom and bust after His return? How is it that we are going to be able to have an entire 1,000 years without this seemingly inescapable destructive cycle? The horrors of the end time will leave mankind more willing to listen to his God, and without Satan's influence, the next step is to change the whole focus of man, from INcoming to OUTgoing:

  • But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:33)
  • A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)

With this vastly different approach to life, we will at last be able to teach a new, amazing financial system, outlined primarily in two specific laws: the Jubilee and the Sabbatical year.

Misguided Capitalism:

Some in the Church of yesteryear — including some ministers — used to give the impression that God's view was similar to that of some kind of worldly capitalist. They saw the financial system in the Millennium as little more than a mild adjustment of the capitalism we currently 'enjoy' in the West today. We need to fully understand that such a view is utterly untrue and totally, unbiblical! Though God's system does indeed give enormous freedom for people to make and enjoy wealth, it is NOT worldly capitalism at all. But neither is it communism, fascism or any other '-ism'. It is totally unlike anything found at any time within the present evil world of Satan. The last 6,000 years should tell us that it's not just bringing in new laws that bring peace and prosperity!

At its very foundation, God's financial system is family based — recognising the nuclear family unit of a man, his wife and their children as the unit in which every potential member of God's family begins his life. God's financial system then gives this family nucleus the financial security required to be able to live life to the full, without constant money worries, so giving a stable family environment to succeeding generations. God's laws for mankind show He is always concerned for the individual, and even His financial system at its heart is people based — as all people come from this God-plane relationship of a family. And one of the main ways it does this is by tying every family to the most tangible thing found on this earth — the land — and renews that tie every 50 years, come what may.

  • Count off seven sabbaths of years — seven times seven years — so that the seven sabbaths of years amount to a period of forty nine years.
  • Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement [the day picturing the banishment of Satan!] sound the trumpet throughout your land.
  • Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. (Leviticus 25:8-10 NIV)
The Jubilee:

This is what the Jubilee does. It returns the basis of all real, tangible wealth back into the hands of the family — as a means of purging this "boom and bust" tendency from society — because absolutely everything we own ultimately comes from the land. In this way it levels the financial playing-field for everyone, family by family, in a real and practical way. It even leads people away from interracial marriage, as it continually brings people back to their own genetic environment — doing so in a patriarchal (not matriarchal) way. This is because the right to the family land normally passes through the sons, with the daughters becoming part of the family into which they marry, and then tied into that new family unit by the very land they – eventually – pass on to their offspring. This in turn also leads society back to placing fathers at the head of each home – a reflection of the God-family position, with the loving Father as the head of the household. So it's the father's family that is tied to the land, not the mother's in the vast majority of cases (for the exception see Numbers 27:1-11) .

Because it is land based, returning people to their land every 50 years, the Jubilee is also designed to create a society that is predominantly rural, not urban! In this way, it also forces man to appreciate the source of his food, and to recognise its link to the blessings of good weather given by God. In addition, because the land stays in a single family's custody, it helps preserve the land's fertility and encourages truly long-term thinking in that custodianship. Unlike the transitory nature of families today, people will literally be able to put down roots! They will want to plant walnut trees for example, because they'll know that whatever happens, the land will remain for their great-great grandchildren! So they will naturally landscape, fertilise, improve and beautify it — caring for it as the priceless heritage it is, knowing that by doing so they will be able to watch succeeding generations of their offspring enjoy it as well.

The Jubilee also means that businesses will not be able to grow into mega-monster conglomerates, buying up acres and acres of land and extending their reach – and usually negative effect – into the local area, as at the end of 50 years, the land has to return to its orginal owner. Small indeed is beautiful.

The Sabbatical Year:

But God's Way does not end with the Jubilee. The financial aspects of the Sabbatical year also make it a Law designed to level out wealth within the population, yet at the same time in no way detract from genuine enterprise and hard work. Part of God's Law is that no interest was to be charged within Israel:

  • Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
  • Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase. (Leviticus 25:36,37)
  • Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
  • Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. (Deuteronomy 23:19,20)

This aspect would presumably expand to apply to all within the commonwealth of Israel as other nations see, and bring themselves under the Government of God in the future (Zechariah 8:23). But then, not only is it illegal to charge interest, but even the capital sum is to be released every 7 years! No horrendous interest piling up that many times becomes totally unmanageable and ends in bankruptcy and in some countries today, slavery for many generations.

  • At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.
  • And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’S release. (Deuteronomy 15:1-2)
A Land of No Poor:

Numerous times within scripture we find God's admonition to care not only for the fatherless and the widows but also those that have fallen on hardtimes – an unselfish, outgoing frame of mind to note:

  • And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God. (Leviticus 19:10)
  • He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. (Proverbs 19:17)
  • And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. (Leviticus 25:35)

This is the financial aspect of the Sabbatical Year and part of the very Plan of God – the very purpose of this amazing law, that "there shall be no poor among you" (Deuteronomy 15:4)

  • But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard. (Exodus 23:11)

Just imagine the scene of a land with no poor! Israel is going to be dealt with first — being taught the way of God, which includes these two laws — and then used by God to be the example nation. The other nations may not want to come up to Jerusalem at first, but they will be forced to do so, to see what is taking place (Zechariah 14:16-19). This also fits with The Way God tends to work... by beginning small and then expanding in an orderly way. The Church will begin teaching and ruling within Israel, making it the model nation. This will then also help us to learn what we need regarding running a nation, before we expand out to teach the whole world.

The other nations will certainly be commanded to send representatives to Jerusalem, but until they come fully under the Government of God, they will not be part of the commonwealth (Ephesians 2:12). The purpose for commanding them to appear — and plaguing them if they don't — is so they will see what is happening in Israel... and be stunned by the peace and prosperity, and once they see, naturally they will want to be included themselves. As with all of God's laws, they are for our good!

God's Marvellous Plan:

As mentioned in Isaiah 9: "Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end". (Isaiah 9:7) Not only will this be the way His rule will spread in the Millennium, but from there, by the end of the Millennium there will be sufficient sons and daughters of God to cope with the Great White Throne judgement — when billions will be resurrected. And after that, the entire Universe! That is the Kingdom of God — a Universe-ruling Family, born of the Spirit, with the character and mind of God Himself, and brought into being in clear, planned stages. The stage we are in today is merely the beginning of a vast, limitless Plan.

Another thing that these two laws of finance reflect, is the identical profound symmetry between simplicity and beauty that is all around us in the creation. Just look at snowflakes as an example. Each one is an absolute marvel of design, but at the atomic level, the laws producing such intricate complexity are as simple as they are profound. So too with these financial laws of the Jubilee and Sabbatical year. Such simple things — but how profound, how far-reaching... yes how vast a change they will give compared to the world we find ourselves oppressed within today.

Our Part:

Currently, the world stumbles on in the darkness of massive indebtedness and other intractable financial problems. But we all need to be ready with that glorious light — light that flows from the Word, Law, and Way of God — illuminating currently our own steps, as we learn to apply God's Way in our lives, but eventually destined to illuminate the entire world. As Christ the King of kings declares — even in the implementation of these two financial Laws as well;

  • All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
  • I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
  • The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:8-10)

There is indeed a time of great trouble just up ahead – something mankind has brought on himself to a large degree, under the sway of the god of this world. But within God's great Master Plan He has everything under control and even uses the seemingly insoluable problems to teach us vital lessons! Ancient Israel 'had it all'...hereditary, God's laws etc, but without a change of heart, even those laws alone could not bring about the Utopia we all long for. As brought out in the message from Joel, God's spirit will be made available to all flesh – bringing about that change of heart, and the result? No debt, no famine, no warfare and a lasting, life-changing relationship with the one true God;

  • Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
  • Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
  • But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
  • Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
  • Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
  • Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
  • And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
  • And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
  • And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
  • And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. (Joel 2:18-27)
News Review - 10 Jan 2020
Whats Ahead In 2020

Trade wars… hot wars… terrorism… a political swing to the right… natural disasters…

What’s Ahead In 2020?

An Iranian-backed militia breached the gates of the US Embassy in Baghdad on December 31st. Three days later the US killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in a pinpoint drone strike. So just 3 days into the new year we have a major incident that could lead to war in the Middle East.

In a world full of political turmoil, trade wars, terrorism and war, the outlook for the rest of 2020 looks grim.

But if we are near the end of this age, this is what we should be expecting to see!

Ground Zero – The Middle East

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that the Middle East’s 2020 will be tumultuous.

Libya’s civil war has taken a dangerous turn, with Russian mercenaries and Turkish forces joining the fray as General Khalifa Hifter’s forces push into the capital.

Yemen’s still ravaged by economic blockade and war, despite recent efforts on all sides to de-escalate the conflict.

Syria’s civil war continues to metastasize, with a massive new wave of refugees fleeing violence in Idlib.

Large-scale popular protests are challenging Iraq’s government, which is bracing for fallout from the growing confrontation between the United States and Iran.

Israel and the Palestinian territories could dramatically change their relationship, as the prospects of a two-state solution dissolve.

And protest movements throughout the region could shake up half a dozen regimes.

Here are three trends to watch in the Middle East over the coming year: Expect these three trends to bring numerous crises during this US election year, shaping the challenges that will await the next administration.

1. Every government is on edge about the US 2020 election: Usually, when the US government changes hands, US foreign policy in the Middle East remains steady and consistent. No more.

2. Conflicts in the gulf region are getting harder to control:

The Trump administration’s ‘maximum pressure’ campaign against Iran has inflicted economic pain - while accomplishing few or none of its strategic objectives.

3. Protests and more protests

2019’s wave of protests across the Middle East rivalled those of the Arab Spring in 2011 - and in some ways were more impressive.

Protests challenged regimes in Iran, Iraq and Lebanon; forced political change in Algeria; and overthrew the Sudanese regime. More will come.(thehour.com)

Problem Areas To Watch

“World War 3 fears have been ignited across the globe just a few days into 2020. So which places around the globe are the most likely to be the starting point for WW3?

Iran-Israel

Tensions between Iran and Israel have been frustrated for a while with low-intensity warfare raging across the Middle East as a result.

The former nation supports anti-Israel groups in Gaza, Syria and Lebanon in particular, while Israel often strikes at Iranian forces across the region. Overall, Israel has endeavoured to create an anti-Iran coalition at a diplomatic level, while Iran has invested in cultivating ties with militias and non-state actors… if Iran is determined to restart its nuclear program, Israel may choose to engage in wider strikes hitting the Iranian homeland directly. This type of assault could have wider implications as it could prove to be a threat to global oil supplies which would inevitably cause more nations to intercede.

US-Turkey

Tensions between the US and Turkey have heightened over the past year, initially as a result of the US providing authorisation to Turkey to clear the Syrian border of US-supported Kurds. However, immediately afterwards, the US threatened Ankara with sanctions, causing tensions to rise. Additionally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested he has aspirations for Turkey which could involve nuclear weapons. As a result, the state of the US-Turkey relationship has worsened, causing fear about the subsequent impact on the NATO alliance. President Erdogan is known for being passionate about his plan which could force Washington and Ankara to the very edge and have a result on Russia who is a neighbouring nation.

Kashmir

In the past 10 years, the relationship between India and Pakistan has worsened, bringing the countries to the brink of war. Since the partition of British India in 1947 and the subsequent creation of India and Pakistan, the two countries have been involved in a number of wars, conflicts and military stand-offs interspersed with periods of harmony and peace.

Further domestic disturbances in India and Pakistan could lead to World War 3. While this is unlikely, it could lead to terrorist attacks internationally or in Kashmir. President Modi might then feel forced to bring on a more serious conflict and given China’s vicinity, and the growing relationship between Delhi and Washington could lead to more disastrous international implications.

US-North Korea

Tensions between the two countries now stand as high as at any time since 2017, and the impending US election could imperil relations further. President Trump’s administration appears to hold out hope a deal with North Korea could improve its electoral prospects in November. But North Korea has little to no interest in Mr Trump’s offering. Recently, North Korea promised a ‘Christmas present’ that many in the United States worried would be a nuclear or ballistic missile test. However, this was not the case, but if the country did undertake a nuclear test, the US might be forced to intervene.

US-China

The US-China relationship has been particularly tense in recent years. Currently, the world’s two largest economies are locked in a bitter trade battle. The dispute, which has simmered for nearly 18 months, has seen the US and China impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of one another’s goods.

President Trump has long accused China of unfair trading practices and intellectual property theft, while in China, there is a perception that the US is endeavouring to curb its rise as a global economic power.

At the same time, China has worked defiantly to assure its relations with Russia, while the US has sparked controversies with both South Korea and Japan, its two closest allies in the region.

Donald Trump and President Xi have staked much of their political reputations on the trade situations in each country and therefore both have incentives for diplomatic and economic escalation. If the situation were to escalate, it could lead to military confrontation in areas such as the South or East China Seas.(express.co.uk)

German Political Meltdown

In the lead up to 2020, Germany’s establishment started to crumble. Many are concerned by the rise of the right wing AfD party and the breakup of the traditional parties..

“2019 has been a year of transition. It hasn’t brought a change of government. But it will be seen as the year that Angela Merkel virtually disappeared. ‘Where is the chancellor?’, the press asked in autumn, as her public interventions had become even rarer than usual.

The year was also overshadowed by two acts of right-wing terrorism: the murder of a local CDU politician in June and the attack on a synagogue in Halle in October. The government’s proposed new laws to punish anti-Semitic violence more strictly are welcome, but its plans to tighten hate-speech laws are worrying.

What will the coming year bring? Will Germany become more democratic, or more authoritarian and illiberal? The future is open, and with cracks appearing in the establishment parties, a lot could change.” (spiked-online.com)

Move To The “Right” Linked To “Traditional Catholic Values”

It is interesting to note that the right wing parties are guiding people back to the morality of an earlier time…

“POLAND - Tens of thousands of far-righters march in ‘independence’ parade calling for ‘Polish Intifada’. The march also drew anti-abortion and anti-LGBT activists, with some demonstrators chanting in support of the ‘regular family,’ the Notes From Poland website reported. Poland is increasingly polarized since the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party took power four years ago promising a revival of patriotism and traditional Catholic values.” (rt.com)

Anti – American Backlash In Germany

With trade wars building up between the US and Germany, the German people don’t like President Trump!

Germans ranked President Donald Trump as more dangerous than North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and others in a recent poll.” (dailycaller.com)

Germany Puts Its Head In Russia’s Energy Pipeline Noose

Gas and oil are vital to keep the mighty German manufacturing industry going. This is a major problem for Germany. While President Trump’s assertion that the US is protecting Europe from Russia is true, what is also true is that Germany is worried about the supply from the US being cut off due to the escalating trade wars between the two nations. As relations worsen between Germany and the US, watch out for a mutual accord being made between Germany and Russia.

One reason that the Beast-led Euro army goes down into the Middle East could be to guarantee that vital oil supply.

A warning in The Plain Truth – October 1985:

“Before World War II, a mutual accord had been made between Germany and Russia.

History often repeats itself.(The Plain Truth, October 1985)


“US President Donald Trump, like his predecessor Barack Obama, has opposed the pipeline project. Trump in particular has criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her refusal to increase defense spending while at the same time supporting the pipeline that will funnel billions of dollars to Russia… ‘So, we’re supposed to protect you against Russia and you pay billions of dollars to Russia and I think that’s very inappropriate. Germany will have almost 70 percent of their country controlled by Russia with natural gas. You tell me, is that appropriate?’ — US President Donald J Trump.

One must assume that Putin’s pet pipeline is not really a business venture — and that the fools are the Europeans, in particular the Germans… In short, Nord Stream 2 could make Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic states less secure, undermine the EU’s security strategy, give Russia a big stick for threatening Eastern Europe and sow discord among NATO allies. To Mr Putin, causing so much trouble for a mere $11 billion must seem like a bargain. For Europe it is a trap… The mystery is why Germany has fallen into it and has been twisting French arms to do the same.” (gatestoneinstitute.org)

Possible Game-Changers To Watch Out For!

It seems that there are problems between the USA, Britain and Judah [Israel] at the end of the age. If the US was to withdraw its support for Judah, then the whole balance of power will change in the Middle East.

“Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: AND THEY TOGETHER SHALL BE AGAINST JUDAH. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.” (Isaiah 9:21)

There is another prophecy that shows up the end time situation in the Middle East. And that reveals Germany’s position!

“Come,” they say, ‘let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.’

Yes, this was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you — these Edomites [Turkey] and Ishmaelites; Moabites and Hagrites; Gebalites, Ammonites, and Amalekites; and people from Philistia and Tyre [Arab nations]. ASSYRIA [Germany] has joined them, too, and is allied with the descendants of Lot [Jordan].(Psalm 83:4 New Living Translation)

German Military Role In Middle East

Back in 2017, this happened:

“Germany’s Bundeswehr is set to participate in the fight against terror from Jordan instead of Turkey. The country is neither a NATO member, nor a democracy by Western standards. King Abdullah II is a leader very much to the West’s liking. In contrast to the princes in the Arabian peninsula, he is usually dressed in a dark suit. He received a military education in Britain and studied in Oxford and Washington. Under his leadership, Jordan has reliably positioned itself in line with Western politics in all major Middle East conflicts. The German government has already given the green light to move troops to Jordan. On June 21, the Bundestag is scheduled to finalize the relocation of troops to Al-Azraq.” (dw.com)

This base is now fully armed and operational!

What Will Happen To America?

After the recent attack on the Iranian General, Mr Trump had this to say:

“The United States just spent Two Trillion Dollars on Military Equipment. We are the biggest and by far the BEST in the World! If Iran attacks an American Base, or any American, we will be sending some of that brand new beautiful equipment their way… and without hesitation!

Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2020” (jpost.com)

This Is True Right Now… But…

With 24 aircraft carriers, around 5,000 fighter aircraft, over 6,000 tanks and enough nuclear bombs to destroy the world… the list seems endless.

No other nation comes even close to matching US power and strength.

But God has said in Leviticus 26:

17) “Ye shall be slain before your enemies…”

19) “And I will break the pride of your power…”

25) “I will bring a sword upon you…” (Leviticus 26: 17, 19, 25)

If we are near to the end of the age – then big events are due!

Destroyed – From Within

There is much talk in the US media about the possibility of civil war. This would have been unthinkable just a few short years ago.

Do you think the US is headed for a civil war? There are too many articles predicting America is in for another Civil War. Since the beginning of 2019, there’s a new one every week. I’ve come to see these stories as PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING which is psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes. When these changes are put through, the public will already be familiar with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening public resistance and commotion.

Andrew follows up on his 2018, CIA-Controlled Media Pushing Civil War Narrative. ‘Let’s remember that Civil Wars (like Revolutions) ARE NEVER SPONTANEOUS. The quiet elite plan them years ahead’.

I doubt that there ever was such a thing as a spontaneous civil war or revolution. There are currently uprisings and civil chaos from France, Lebanon to Bolivia, Chile, Hong Kong, etc. None of which is accidental. No one can say when and if this chaos will come to America, but everything is ready.(12160.info)

America – A Polarized Nation

This is how some people see it:
Irreconcilable Differences

National Sin

After warning the people who were about to go into the Promised Land, God gave them this warning:

“You must obey all my regulations and be careful to obey my decrees, for I am the LORD your God.

Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it… Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants.

And IF YOU DEFILE THE LAND, IT WILL VOMIT YOU OUT as it vomited out the nations that were before you.” (Leviticus 18:4, 22-25, 28 New Living Translation)

You only have to look at what is going on in British and American cities to confirm that many HAVE defiled the land…

“Natural” Disasters

Right now, we can see the wars, but read on…

“Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.” (Matthew 24:7)

Famine indicates food shortages – hence expensive food.

The Greek word translated “earthquakes” is interesting.

Sice-mos’ - from G4579; a commotion, that is, (of the air) a gale, (of the ground) an earthquake: - earthquake, tempest.

So this could include earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes typhoons and tornadoes. This could also encompass the results of commotion, such as the horrendous bush fires currently engulfing Australia – and with 2 more months of the dry season to go!

According to many experts – we are long overdue for the “Big One!”

When the world starts to fall apart around us - Christ tells us to…

Stand and Look Up


“People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!(Luke 21:26-28 New Living Translation)

Then – A Promise!

“Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near.

I tell you the truth, THIS GENERATION [the generation who see ‘these things’] will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place.

Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.(Luke 21:29-33 New Living Translation)

Always remember – this is not our world!

We are Ambassadors for the World Tomorrow!

We are not part of the problem - but we SHOULD BE part of the solution!

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!

Listen to Me, You who know righteousness, You people in whose heart is My Law: …I have put My words in your mouth, I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, “you are My people” (Isaiah 51:7,16)
