Jeremiah 11:11

Our Western World is brim full of chaos and confusion - in Europe, in Britain, and in the USA. Now, a horror movie with the ominous warning – right out of the Bible. The headline asks:

“Jeremiah 11:11 - A Cryptic Message About America’s Future?”

“As soon as Jordan Peele’s smash hit ‘Us’ was released in theaters, hundreds of thousands of people started searching Google for Jeremiah 11:11. We are never told what it actually says, but it appears repeatedly throughout the film. …There is a lot of speculation that it was inserted for more than just entertainment value. Many have noted that the entire movie appears to be some sort of a metaphor for America as a whole, and even the title ‘Us’ could also be be interpreted as ‘U.S.’ if you just use a little imagination.

“Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.” (Jeremiah 11:11)

In the end, perhaps we are making too much of a silly horror film.

But there are two things that we should all be able to agree upon. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are suddenly reading the ominous warning in Jeremiah 11:11, and a ‘day of reckoning’ is definitely coming for America.” ( theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

A Spiritual Problem

As in this horror film, many today are quoting scripture… but without understanding. Some realize that a “day of reckoning” is definitely coming for America and Britain. But what people today do not understand is that there is a reason for all this chaos, as Mr Armstrong explained:

“…we are now near the END of the 6,000 years during which God sentenced the world to be cut off from Him – to go its own way, form its own governments, its own religions, its own ways of life. Adam, the first man, rejected God and God’s government over him and his descendants – this whole world.” ( The Plain Truth – October/November 1978)


“By eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam chose the way of self-acquired knowledge.

It was Satan who influenced Adam, through Eve, to make the wrong decision.

Satan now influenced everything Adam did.

It was Satan who influenced Cain to kill Abel.

It is Satan, ‘the god of this world’ (II Corinthians 4:4), who has been influencing the descendants of Adam and Eve ever since!” ( Correspondence Course - Lesson 19)

If we look at the proceeding verse in Jeremiah 11, we see the real problem:

“They are turned back to the iniquities [lawlessness] of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.” (Jeremiah 11:10-11)

In the very near future, both Britain and the USA will be destroyed by a resurgent European power as God’s punishment, because they have forsaken Him and His ways! We are surrounded by signs of the end of this age… here is a situation overview…

America’s Anxieties Are About To Go Biblical

“The sore beset people of this land may be good and [thoroughly] sick of politics, RussiaGate, and Trump-inspired social strife, but they may soon have something more down-to-earth to worry about: Biblical floods and plagues. Media hysteria around the Mueller Report has nearly eclipsed news of historic flooding in the midwest that has already caused $3 billion in damage to farms, homes, livestock, and infrastructure. With spring rainfall already at 200 percent of normal levels, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement in late March saying, ‘This is shaping up to be a potentially unprecedented flood season, with more than 200 million people at risk for flooding in their communities.’

More to the point, two major western dams show disturbing signs of potential failure that may bring on unprecedented disasters. The Oroville Dam on the Feather River north of Sacramento — the highest earthen dam in the US — nearly blew out in February 2017 when record rains damaged the main spillway, threatening to send a 30-foot wall of water downstream towards California’s capital and towns along the way.

Now, two years later, new cracks have appeared in the repaired Oroville Dam main spillway. The Sierra Nevada snowpack stands at 153 percent above average, and the National Weather Service predicts that weak El Nino conditions with above-average Pacific Ocean temperatures are likely to produce above-average rainfall this spring along with the snowpack melt.

The Fort Peck Dam on the upper Missouri River in Montana is likewise troubling experts watching a record snowpack in the Rocky Mountains. It too is an earthen dam — the world’s largest by volume — filled with hydraulic slurry. Because it is located on the flat high plains, the dam is extremely long, running 21,000 feet — about four miles — from end to end. Behind it is a reservoir that is the fifth-largest man-made lake in the nation.

The slurry construction of the dam inclines it to liquification when the ground shakes. Failure of the Fort Peck dam would send the equivalent of a whole year’s flow of the Missouri River downstream in one release that could potentially wash away the other five downstream dams in the Missouri River Mainstem Reservoir System, along with every bridge from Montana to St Louis, an unimaginable amount of farm and town infrastructure, and several nuclear power installations. It would be the greatest national disaster in US history.( zerohedge.com)

Horrifying Medieval Diseases Are Making A Comeback

“Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of Typhus…

People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria…

Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through faeces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years.

Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

‘It really is unconscionable,’ said Bobby Watts, CEO of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, a policy and advocacy organization. ‘ These are all preventable diseases’.” ( khn.org)

US recession: “We're At 15 Minutes To Midnight”

“Citigroup has issued an explicit recession warning for the United States, advising clients to wind down exposure to risky assets and prepare to ride out the storm. ‘We advise investors to prepare for recession,’ it said.” ( telegraph.co.uk)

Immigrants Send Record $148 Billion Home, Latin America, China Tops The List

Back in the book of Hosea, we are told that… “Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not ” - talking about Ephraim – but Manasseh has the same problem. A huge sum of money, $148 billion, taken out of the US economy to support people in other nations.

“Legal and illegal immigrants in the United States send a record $148 billion home in 2017, with Latin America and China topping the list, according to new World Bank data. Mexico received the most, at $30 billion, followed by China at $16 billion and India at $11 billion. Globally, immigrants sent $625 billion home in 2017, a 7% one-year jump.” ( washingtonexaminer.com)

US Moral Collapse

“America has been given very clear choices between good and evil, life and death, blessings and curses over and over again, and we have consistently made the wrong choices. If we stay on this road, there is only one result that will be possible. The following facts prove that America’s moral collapse is spinning wildly out of control…

  • America has killed more than 60 million children since Roe vs Wade was decided in 1973.
  • According to the CDC, approximately 110 million Americans have a sexually-transmitted disease right now.
  • According to the United Nations Population Fund, 40 percent of all births in the US now happen outside of marriage. But if you go back to 1970, that figure was sitting at just 10 percent.
  • At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.
  • Approximately one-fourth of the entire global prison population is in the United States.
  • By the time an American child reaches the age of 18, that child will have seen approximately 40,000 murders on television.
  • Over half a million people are homeless in the United States right now, but more cities than ever are passing laws making it illegal to feed them.
  • 37 million credit card accounts in the US are “seriously delinquent” at this moment.
  • According to the Pentagon, 71 percent of our young adults are ineligible to serve in the US military because they are either too dumb, too fat or have a criminal background.
  • During one seven day stretch last summer, a total of 16,000 official complaints were submitted to the city of San Francisco about piles of human feces littering the streets.
  • When you include unfunded liabilities, the true size of our national debt is 222 trillion dollars. What we are doing to future generations of Americans is beyond criminal.
  • Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for Americans from age 15 to age 24.
  • The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of US military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
  • One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.

…if we continue running toward evil, it is only a matter of time before exceedingly painful consequences overtake us.( theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

Washington Loses Its Global Leadership

“Washington’s not only losing its economic & military power but also its soft power that rested in the propaganda. What comes next? Since 2016 the United States has been in the Russiagate box, a hoax created by the US military/security complex to prevent President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. Normalized relations would devalue THE RUSSIAN THREAT, an orchestration that protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex.

The Democratic Party, which most certainly is not democratic, supported the hoax hoping to do Trump in for their own reasons and pulled the presstitute media into the conspiracy against Trump. The succession of these stupidities is destroying America’s reputation.

Meanwhile, other countries moved on. The Russians, for example, discovered that Washington’s sanctions had a silver lining. Russia became more self-sufficient economically and moved out of the box of being an exporter of raw materials to the West, a box into which the Americans and the American-brainwashed Russian economics profession had put the Russian government.

The fulminations and threats from Washington against Russia brought forth new Russian weapon systems for which the US has no match or defense, weapons that demote the US to a second-rate military power.

On an adjusted basis, China now has the world’s largest economy and increasingly ignores Washington’s blustering. As does Iran. Even Venezuela stands up to Washington. The world is concluding that Washington is not the power it thinks it is.

President Franklin D Roosevelt was happy to see World War II because he understood that it would leave Britain bankrupt and without an empire. Roosevelt understood that the gain would be America’s, because the US would take over the reserve currency role. The reason this is important is that the reserve currency country can pay its bills by printing money. Thus, the government has no budget constraints.

For a country as indebted as America, to lose this role would be a crushing blow. It is this blow that Washington faces as a result of its idiotic policy of sanctions and disrespect of international law.

And there is another blow. Just as the Roman Empire fell to invaders who crossed the frontiers of the empire, so is Washington’s empire falling.

Europe, the crown jewel of the empire, is now overrun with millions of unassimilable peoples to the extent that Europe is no longer European.

The President of the US has so far been powerless to defend the borders of the United States. Indeed, the Democratic Party and the presstitute media are totally opposed to any defense of American borders.

Why does a government unwilling to defend its borders, spend $1,000 billion annually on defense?

As for moral authority, after Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yeman, Ukraine, Honduras, and now Venezuela, all moral authority has vacated the West. The consequence of disunity perhaps precludes any leadership. But the collapse of the West into diversity and multiculturalism definitely means that Western leadership has been lost to the weakness of disunity. Is it chaos that awaits?( silverdoctors.com)

What Has Happened To The America We Grew Up In?

“Earlier today, my attention was directed to a thread on an Internet discussion forum that lamented how much America had changed over the years. Today, we seemingly have so much going for us, and yet people are lonelier, more disconnected and more depressed than ever before. The suicide rate in the United States is up 34 percent since the year 2000, approximately 40 million American adults have an anxiety disorder, and overdosing on drugs is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. Clearly our society is not heading in the right direction.” ( endoftheamericandream.com)

Is The Demise Of The Euro Inevitable?

When we look at Europe, we also see chaos and confusion.

“As the eurozone economy slows down and the European Central Bank (ECB) runs out of ways to fuel the market, market strategist Russell Napier has said the Euro may be in trouble. Speaking to FT, the analyst firmly stated that the global monetary system is beginning to show serious vulnerabilities, noting that the demise of the euro may trigger the collapse of the existing financial system.” ( ccn.com)

We Were Warned!

Nearly 35 years ago, God’s endtime Apostle had this to say:

“… I can see now the event that is going to trigger the formation of reunification in Europe… Well, now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger it and that is the economic situation in the world.

Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down. I just wanted to say that much - maybe you can begin to see how serious this thing can become!( Sermon - 7 July 1984)

Brexeternity

Meanwhile, in Britain, the Brexit crisis goes ON and on and on and on… Seemingly endless!

“Mrs May presents the demands for a new vote and a rejection of her deal as leading to economic chaos and collapse. She may yet win support as Angela Merkel and other EU leaders have said there can be no renegotiation. This is the only deal on offer.

Companies like Airbus and Siemens are stockpiling millions of spare parts. Even if the deal is agreed, the EU and the UK have to negotiate a completely new arrangement covering everything from trade in goods and services, aviation, to data protection, police cooperation, and human rights.

This will take years during which time the UK will de facto stay part of the EU even if formal political membership ends [in] March.

Switzerland rejected the EU and even the European Economic Area, to which Norway belongs, in 1992. Ever since Berne and Brussels have been quarrelling. Is that the future for Britain? A Brexeternity of endless negotiations with Brussels? The Brexit saga for the United Kingdom is only just beginning.” ( euractiv.com)

Defeat And National Captivity Come Next!

As Britain and America descend into chaos, God’s correction is not far off! The attitude of many today is revealed in the book of Isaiah: “…cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us”… and the result? “…therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.” (Isaiah 30:11,13)

“When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.” (Hosea 7:12)

But the story does not end there…

As God’s endtime Apostle pointed out, the solution to all of mankind’s problems is at hand!

“The prophecies do not stop with revealing the unprecedented multiplied intensity of punishment already beginning to descend upon America and Britain. The prophecies record also the RESULT of that intensified punishment. The result will be a corrected people. The result will be an eye-opening realization of what we have done to ourselves. The supreme punishment will teach us, at last, our lesson! The punishment will break our spirit of REBELLION! It will lift us up from the cesspool of rottenness and evil into which we have sunk. It will teach us the way to glorious peace, prosperity, happiness, abundant well-being!” ( The Plain Truth – June/July 1979)

How will this dramatic change be achieved?

In the beginning, Adam rejected the tree of life, representing the Holy Spirit. When Christ returns, He has promised to … “pour out My Spirit on all flesh” (Joel 2:28)!

The big lesson that mankind has to learn is that they cannot rule themselves. All forms of human government end in disaster. 6000 years of human history backs that statement up!

After the return of Jesus Christ – to take over the rulership of the earth - then will be: The New Covenant

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

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.

And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34)
