Why The Left Hates The Internet…

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.(John 9:4)

The internet is an amazing phenomenon. In spite of all of it’s many uses for evil, the cyber-world is the last bastion of free speech available to the world, a kind of international “town square” of communication, inviting one and all into the various ‘conversations’ breaking out since it’s inception and explosive growth.

Anyone who can type has a voice on the internet. Because of that some truly great writers and journalists have emerged, who never would have gotten past the cultural gatekeepers in the old (leftist dominated) media, successful such as Matt Drudge and Michelle Malkin.

I am truly amazed at how little official opposition there seems to be to the relinquishing of control over the internet by the Obama administration.  The internet is virtually a “made in the USA” phenomenon, having been financed at first by the US taxpayer, utilized by the military and eventually opened up to “whosoever will”, but under limited administration of domain names by the US  Commerce Department.

U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.

Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.

The change would end the long-running contract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based nonprofit group. That contract is set to expire next year but could be extended if the transition plan is not complete.(US to Relinquish Control Over The Internet, by Craig Timberg, Washington Post, March 14, 2014)

The handover is supposed to take place on October 1st, 2016, and is being ignored by the ‘legacy Media’. There has long been an international call for International authority to monitor the content of the internet by foreign nations,  but the pressure on the US to relinquish control of the internet has intensified with the revelations of the National Security Agency spying on foreign governments.

The present system is US operated, licensed and with limited content oversight.It is true that people can literally say anything, every point of view can be aired and debated. Under US supervision, this amazing means of communication has remained basically a free speech forum.

The turnover to foreign entities will change all of that, no doubt. Most of the world languishes under heavy blankets of censorship, for example, try criticizing Mohammed in any way in the Muslim world, or write an editorial against the Russian government, or the Chinese chairman, in Russia or China. In those places speech is uniform, no one can freely dissent without paying a heavy price for speaking out, even the ultimate price.Only the Religio/political elite can speak their mind in most of the world.

Leftists like Obama love this, they actually envy the absolute power dictators have over their own people, particularly the power to stifle dissent and criticism.Obama once wistfully opined, “It would be so much easier to be the President of China…”  . He also once prophesied that the future ,”would not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam!”

The internet as it has grown and developed, flies in the face of all of this suppression.Thankfully, as in the recent Brexit vote in the UK, the people can actually side step the will of the ruling elite, and get alternatives to the official narrative, dutifully spoon fed to us for decades by the alphabet clone networks, ABC,CBS,NBC, CNN, NPR, and rags such as TIME magazine, NEWSWEEK, and the NEW YORK TIMES, the so called “legacy Media”.

Time and again we find that far from the “objective journalists” that they pretend to be, the Walter Cronkites, Peter Jennings, Sam Donaldsons, Wolf Blitzers and George Stephanopilis’s of the world are nothing more than highly biased partisan hacks.

How many times have we made the discovery that NBC or some other legacy organ has actually rigged stories, and outright lied to the American public? Brian Williams and Dan Rather come to mind.  These people are not above this, they hold the average person in contempt, and are sell out leftists for the most part.

At one time, in my lifetime, this is virtually all we had for “news” and “information”.

As the internet has exponentially expanded and grown, so also has an entire “alternative Media”, such as the DRUDGE report, FREEREPUBLIC, FRONTPAGEMAG NATIONAL REVIEW and TOWNHALL, not mention the untold thousands of truly valuable bloggers who have undertaken the important journalistic work that the ‘official media” has refused to do,( to the immense harm of this nation). Pajamas Media and Bill Whittle have done so much to counter the lies and spin also.

Our nation has been virtually betrayed by the traditional Media. There would be no 8 hellish, horrible, destructive years of Obama had the media even pretended to do it’s job of being true investigators and watchdogs, rather than the shameless political hacks that they have proven to be.

The relentless whitewashing and cover up of Islam by the Media is another treachery perpetrated against the American people. We have to put on “Anger management” after every massacre  or horrendous outrage perpetrated upon us by the followers of Mohammed, for the Media pushes constantly the myth of the nonexistent “backlash”which Moslems supposedly fear so much. (I really wish there was some backlash to some extent).

Thankfully there are Robert Spencer or William Warner and countless others , ignored for the most part by the traditional Media, but through the Internet they have a vast constituency of people sick and tired if being “gaslighted”  and lied to about Islam, and who rant to inform themselves about the truth of this plague which has come to confront us.

The Media lies in its coverage about crime and race and those lies have brought this nation to such a toxic situation, people are dying because of it. The rage and sense of injustice carefully stoked in great part by the media, among minority communities has poisoned our nation’s racial environment , setting back relations sixty years.

You would never know by the legacy media, that there are black conservatives, who hold to a different point of view than the racial arsonists such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the many newer exploiters of the black rage industry. They are carefully avoided, and treated as oddities or non-entities. But not on the internet, their voices are heard.

Finally through the internet the Word of God goes everywhere, even into the “closed world”.Christians have jumped on the internet to use it for evangelism, discipleship, publishing, teaching and examining the prophecies. I thank God everyday that I live in this time when we can do it, for I am sure none of my seven books would be read by anyone , had I had to go through the compromised bottleneck that is Christian publishing.

People are getting saved, lies are being challenged, Islam is being criticized (This almost has never happened, because people would be killed for daring to do so).

With all of it’s flaws and vanities, I believe that we are in a period of light, while the internet remains under US supervision. It is still basically free. People can express themselves openly.

Obama, like all of the other elite State worshippers, is very uncomfortable with that.

After all, there are too many people dissenting the weaponizing of immigration as a means of destabilizing the west, there are too many people calling out the Satanic cult that is ISlam, there are too many people pointing out fake documents such as Obama’s birth certificate and Dan Rather’s fraudulent attempt to slander George Bush. It is too obvious that the emperor is not wearing anything, and that the New World order is a fascistic nightmare coming at us.

I don’t know what will happen but I think if the internet is relinquished to the UN or to Russia, China or the Muslim world, (or some combination of the above),Websites are going to be shut down, and we will be back where we were in the 1990’s and before, with only the viewpoint of the left as our form of “News”. Night is falling.

If they shut down the internet, a light goes out. I will then be relieved of the responsibility to write as copiously as I have (1000 articles, 4 books) . I will know the darkness is descending and that soon the Lord will return…we must work while it is light…Maranatha!

I am of course confident that I will fulfill my tasks as a writer in all circumstances – from my grave even more successfully and more irrefutably than in my lifetime. No one can bar the road to truth, and to advance its cause I am prepared to accept even death. But may it be that repeated lessons will finally teach us not to stop the writer’s pen during his lifetime? At no time has this ennobled our history.

The Trumpets; The Reversal of Creation…Revelation 8 pt 3

And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. (Revelation 8:6-113)

The Judgments that are coming, in the time of the apocalypse are reminiscent of the plagues of Egypt; hail and fire falling from heaven, the sea turning to blood, the fresh waters also turned to blood.

The whole world lies in the wicked one. The Anti-Christ is the new God defying Pharoah. The entire proud, technocratic, self-sufficient, God defying World is doomed, not just proud Egypt. Sinners shake their fists in the face of God, and harden their hearts, just as Pharoah once did.

Each trumpet calls forth another plague, one after another, in response to the prayers of all of the saints which had been gathered into a censor, offered to God and then flung to the earth.

As in Exodus, darkness will yet come also, a darkness that can be felt. This is a partial foretaste of the second death that the Most High warns about. It is as though he is pleading with men,“Do you now know what darkness really feels like?, Do you really want to thirst forever? Please consider and repent! Don’t go to Hell, I beseech you!”.

In these plagues, He gives the ultra sin hardened souls of the human race a foretaste of the horrors that await them, hoping it will turn them unto Him in repentance.

Another echo of Exodus is the fall of the poisoned star “Wormwood” into the fresh waters. It is the reversal of the story of the waters of Marah, in Exodus 15, when the congregation in the desert found water, but it was bitter and poisonous water.

And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,(Exodus 15:23-25)

The gospel is in that story, for as Moses put a God designated tree in the waters to make them drinkable again, so the Lord has given us a tree, the cross of Jesus, to put into the poisoned water of our sinful life. The cross makes the sin poisoned waters sweet again.

But Wormwood is a typological reversal of the story. As a judgment on a world which has rejected the cross, a mountain falls from heaven and poisons the fresh waters of the earth. causing men to agonize in thirst.

Finally these trumpets are the reversal of something much more basic; Creation. In the beginning God said, “Let there be Light…” and all came into being. But at the end, God said, “Let there be darkness(Partial) over the earth. God said let the earth teem with trees, herbs, crops, but after the fire, Hail and blood fall, those blessings of life are consumed.

God gave the great Oceans and called them to teem with life also, but at the end, in judgment, the waters turn to blood and death is what teems in the Oceans. Already the badly burned, radiated and deformed fish are washing ashore in California, from the Fukushima reactor meltdown. This is a foretaste of the coming death of the Oceans.

As we saw in Revelation 6, by the time of the end, even the sky, which is so comforting night or day, reminding men everywhere that there is a higher, better and purer place where we can all know the freedom we long for (Heaven), will be rolled up as a scroll, and taken away. In judgment, even the blessings of the creation of God ar removed from defiant and sinful men.

I pray my readers will flee to the last Ark of safety, as Noah did in His own day. The last Ark is the person of Jesus Christ who came to deliver us from the wrath to come, by dying for our sins and reconciling us to His Father, God. Please call upon the name of Jesus while there is time, and break off from your sins, in the fear of God.

Who may abide the day of his coming, and who may stand when He appears?

Voices,Lightenings,Thunders and an Earthquake…Revelation 8 pt 2

And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. (Revelation 8:4-7)

The cumulative prayers of all of the Saints for all time, have been gathered into a censor, by the Angelic ministers at the heavenly Altar of Incense. Every heartfelt cry for deliverance, and for the coming Kingdom of God has been heard. All supplications from those persecuted and powerless in this world have been regarded by heaven. Each and every prayer for the will of God to be done, “on earth as it is in heaven” will be fully answered.

Those whom the world reject as powerless, and without any earthly resources, and of whom this world despises and rejects, do indeed have power, but not worldly power. With impunity the world mocks and bears false witness of, when they regard them at all. They cry out in places like Sudan, Egypt, Iraq and Afghanistan, where Moslems enslave and slaughter Christians in the hundreds of thousands, and very few even notice, But God has heard their prayer and the time for the heavenly answer has come.

There will be no place for them in the “Brave New World ” the godless western elites are building, so their rights and limited powers will be marginalized, until they have nothing left except the power of prayer. Like the widow woman in Jesus parable, in the day of the unjust Judges, who regard neither God or man, the disenfranchised flock of Jesus have nothing left but to cry out to God, as their brothers and sisters in the rest of the world.

This vision shows us that when their prayers are gathered and flung back to the earth in heavenly response. Awesome and shattering things begin to happen in response to these prayers.

The vision shows that there would be “…voices, thunderings, Lightnings and an earthquake“as the first result of the cumulative prayers of all time being answered at the casting of the Holy Censor.This is reminiscent of Mt. Sinai, where God earlier revealed himself to men, in the giving of the Law. Once again he will shale all things, and once again some will hear the voice of God and His Angels, and tremble at the revelation of his majestic power in the last days.

Trumpets of Judgment are blown and great terror and anguish comes to the God-rejecting world, as a direct result of the prayers of these powerless and disenfranchised ones.

Who may abide the Day of His coming and who may stand when He appears?

Have there not already been a good many voices calling out as a warning? But the earthly voices have been ignored. Partly they have been crowded out by the glad-handed, insipid form of Christianity that has developed as a result of modern “church-growth” studies, taken out of the secular market sciences and even from the New Age movement.

Modern Christians are lulled to a false comfort,(And in a good many cases a false conversion) through these “new and improved” methods. Compared to the glib,hipster model of modern pastor, spouting psycho-babble and feel-good baby theology, the true prophet who bares his soul calling out the sins of our day and warning people of the coming wrath seems like an irrelevant nut!

So much for the “voices”! There are countless “voices “clamoring for our attention.

But in the dark days of Revelation 8, “Voices” will sound from heaven itself, and in the last form of the gospel, Angels will be dispatched to cry out.

Have there not been plentiful “lightnings and thunderings”? Current events meant to illuminate us all to out true condition, and ominous portents meant to startle us out of our lukewarmness?

Shouldn’t the fall of so many Christian leaders into sin and the exposure of deep hypocrisy, have caused us to re-examine our own faith? What about the exposure of false prophets such as Todd Bentley, Bob Jones and Paul Cain? Wisdom cried out loud in the streets, but when such things happened, they had no effect on the constituency of these charlatans.

Have we not experienced a few earthquakes? Wasn’t the attack on the World Trade center One, and the legalization of Homosexual marriage, and the twice election of a Muslim sympathizer to the US Presidency an earthquake?

In the end, these terrors will sound from heaven itself, for God is still long-suffering, not willing that any perish but that all come to repentance! But will many listen? Will they repent?

Silence in Heaven…Revelation 8 pt 1

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.(Revelation 8 :1-3)

The flow of the Revelation given to John goes as follows;

Chap 1 – “Write the things you have seen…”– This is the vision of the glorified Jesus.

Chap 2-3- “…the things which are…” Next are the letters to the churches in her present condition.

Chap 4-5 – We are then taken into the very throne room of God and of the Lamb.

Chap 6-“…and write the things which shall be hereafter…” – The first six of seven seals of judgment are opened that we might see the judgments to come.

Chap 7- The vision of the Divine sealing of 144,000 Jews and then the sight of the uncountable harvest of souls is an interlude between the sixth and seventh seal.

Chap 8 – At the opening of the seventh seal there is silence in heaven for a half hour.

This is profound and mysterious on many levels. Silence in heaven? Time measurements in heaven? What could this possibly mean?

It has been pointed out by other commentators that what we see in Revelation 8 is a large-scale liturgical temple service, particularly the one at the altar of incense.

During the service, the Priests would sing numerous songs, prayers and hymns, until the actual offering of incense upon the altar, which called for absolute and utter silence. Such was the gravity of the service on earth, how much more this one n heaven?

The idea of the altar of incense was that the prayers of humanity are inadequate and unacceptable in and of themselves, for even the best are tainted with sinful motive and self-seeking.

But when mixed with the offering of the one beautiful human life, lived in utter and complete love and devotion to God, as a “Sweet smelling fragrance” to God, such prayers become acceptable to God. In the name of Jesus Christ.

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.(Ephesians 5:2)

Here we see all prayers of all times, not one of them is overlooked. Cumulatively they have asked for the Hallowing of God’s name, and for the Kingdom to come, the will of God to be done, and for forgiveness of sins, and the deliverance from evil.

True the prayers and the Pray-ers have oft been found weak, inadequate and somewhat wrongly motivated, but when mixed into the life of the One who saved them and offered himself to God completely, none of them is wasted, God has regarded all of the prayers of the least saints.

They are gathered into a censor and flung to the earth to bring about the consummation of all things.This is what the silence in heaven anticipates.

Passages in Zephaniah and Habbakuk and Psalms command the silence which marks the gravity of the majestic God.

Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.(Zephaniah 1:7)

But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before Him. (Habakkuk 2:20)

Oh That men would recognize the Holy God, and give Him the glory He is due, while there is yet time! Oh that they could but know His majesty and greatness, and humble themselves, finding refuge in the Son! Alas! We live in a day of lightness, even in the presentation of God by the Shepherds!

Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry? Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still. When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.(PSalm 76:7-9)

The Coming Prince…Daniel 8 pt 7

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.  And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.  And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.(Daniel 8:23-27)

Daniel 8 is a prediction for the end of times. The Prophecy concerns the fate of Persia (Iran), and  coming developments regarding a Greco-Western power which will lead to the rise of the Anti-Christ.

There have been many tyrants and Anti-Christs through the centuries, such as Antiochus Epiphanes, the Caesars who demanded worship as Gods, the Popes of the Catholic church who persecuted Christians and took to themselves the worship and titles belonging to God alone, such as “Holy Father”. There have been many modern Anti-Christs; Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Ceucescu, Pol Pot and the Kim il Sungs of Korea.

But the final man of sin will be unique.

This King  will understand “Dark sayings”, that is He will understand the deep mysteries of the Kingdom of God, including the prophecies of God.One of the stated reasons for studying the Proverbs of Solomon  is that the disciple might understand “Dark sayings”.

Proverbs 1:6 “To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.”

Dark sayings are the Words God grants to Prophets, such as Moses, and are put to music in Psalms .

“With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold : wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?”Numbers 12:8 

“I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.”Psalm 49:4

“I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:”Psalm 78:2

The coming “King of a fierce countenance” will have this attribute, He will have the knowledge that those who seek God are given. Can you imagine the capacity for deception this will allow ? Satan himself quoted scripture to Jesus, evidently the church and Israel will be subjected to a similar test.

The King of Tyre is a type of this “wise one”,

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.(Ezekiel 28:12)

Thus shall his power be mighty, for His coming is after the working of Satan, with all lysing signs and wonders. But ultimately all of his power and wisdom is what the Most High allows him to have, and those only for a brief season, that height make war on the Saints and wear them down and overcome them.

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.(Revelation 13:7)

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.(Daniel 7:25)

This Prince shall be granted success over his rivals, political enemies and shall be seen as a victor in  war for a limited time.

But he will also be skilled in the art of diplomacy, and shall destroy many, “By Peace”. This isn’t really hard to imagine, because we are witnessing the destruction and forced  transformation of much of the once powerful western world, because of the new emphasis on “Peace”. Western nations tie their militaries’ hands behind their own backs in the name of Peace.

By holding back and fighting “police actions” instead of all out total war against vicious regimes such as Iran, Iraq and the Taliban, we stretch our wars out for 15 expensive, inconclusive years.Our own State department and President is already wreaking much destruction by “Peace”. It would actually be much more merciful to our enemies if we were just allowed to take the gloves off and trounce them, thoroughly , as we did the Japanese and the Germans in 1945.

We will see just what the scripture is teaching us about when it warns that the final Prince will destroy many with Peace.

We will also see how plainly this coming leader will stand up to repudiate the Prince of Princes, the real High Priest in heaven, the LORD Messiah Jeshua.

He will distinguish himself by his bold statements against the Most High, the Saints and against God himself,

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven and it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.(Revelation 13:4-7)

This evil Prince will not be assassinated, nor will he be able to commit suicide as Antiochus IV Epiphanies was reported to have done. God himself shall deal with him.

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.  And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.(Revelation 19:19-21)

When The Transgressors are Come to the full…Daniel 8 pt 6

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.  And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.(Daniel 8:23-27)

The vision of Daniel 8 is a vision for the very end of days, a time described as being “When the Transgressors are come to the full…”. In the near future of Daniel, the prophecy came to partial fulfillment when the apostasy of Israel was so severe, the office of the High Priest was sold, the high priest took on a Greek name, and the holy nation became hellenized, embracing greek culture, the worship of the male body, the acceptance of homosexuality, the repudiation of the law and the prophets by all but a few pious ones, and the persecution of the remnant.

It was when this transgression came to its head that the LORD allowed Antiochus Epiphanes to partially subjugate and persecute Israel, even to the point of all0wing him to desecrate the Holy Place in the Temple of God.

But those horrifying days were only a partial fulfillment, the ultimate fulfillment of these scriptures is soon to commence.

How much further can the world descend, in this the closing of the Christian era? Is there anything left to blaspheme? What comes after the widespread promotion of abortion and homosexuality? How much further can the confessing church of Jesus descend, embracing homosexuals,Muslims and even atheists as “seekers” and in some cases as ministers?

Has our own transgression yet come to the full?

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.( 2 Timothy 3:1-5)

We currently live in the days of Noah, a time of unprecedented violence, pornography, rebellion against all authority, (see Charlotte, Baltimore, Malmo, Damascus, London, etc). People rioting and assaulting random strangers actually feel justified in their violence as they protest in the streets! Muslims actually believe that they are doing God’s service when they kill innocent people in cities all over the world.

Our leaders in the West ignore maimings, rapes, knife attacks and even bombings of their own population by Muslims, as they open the gates to the Barbarian invaders and cover up any unfavorable stories which cast light on their policies. After a weekend of such Mayhem here in America, Obama only doubles down on his pledge to bring in more than a hundred thousand more of these potential terrorists!

These are the days of Lot, a time when Homosexuals are so emboldened they actually have “Gay pride days” marching down the streets of major cities across the Western world. Incredibly, many “straight people” actually bring their families and little children down to see these appalling spectacles. The “Gays” are vicious, vengeful destroying any who speak out against them.Homosexuality and other perversions are actually encoded in Western law now!

Even after the exposure that Planned parenthood was selling body parts of defenseless babies, in some cases preserving them alive as they performed hideous abortions on them, so that a heart, liver or brain could be preserved, our leaders have only doubled down making sure Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills are well funded with taxpayer money, and her critics are silenced.

Our own President’s response to the horrifying revelation, was a public “God Bless you Planned Parenthood! You are not going to be closed as long as I am around!”.

What I am saying is what Daniel was saying…The AntiChrist will be revealed in a time when the Transgressors have come to the full…when the cup of iniquity has filled, and the time has come to Judge the World for her sins.

Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.(Revelation 11 :17-18)

The Emergence of The Little Horn… Daniel 8 pt 5

Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.  And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.  Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.  And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.( Daniel 8:8-12)

Daniel’s vision of the Ram and the Goat correctly predicted events which would happen two hundred  plus years after his death, but the Angel that interpreted Daniel’s vision, told him that the vision was for the latter times.

And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.  So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.  Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.  And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.(Daniel 8:16-19)

The chosen nation,Israel,  is still suffering “the indignation” the long exile and period of subjugation by Gentile powers, the “time of the Gentiles ” that Jesus referred to in Luke 21,

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.(Luke 21:34)

The immediate fulfillment of the dream came about in the third century BC, when the Persian Empire,(The Ram) prospered and expanded, until with speed and ferocity, in three crucial engagements, the Macedonians under Alexander the Great (The Shaggy goat) toppled the Persian empire and conquered his way from the Levant all the way to the edges of India, in a period of 11 years.

But Alexander, (the horn of the goat) died suddenly, and having no heirs his Empire was carved up and divided among his four top Generals. Eventually, out of the Greek part of the Empire, a General arose who distinguished himself for his hatred of the God of the Jews. His name was Antiochus the 7th, also called “Epiphanes”, (Light from above).

This Emporer had possession of the Holy land.He sought to Hellenize* it, banning circumcision, the sabbath, and tried to destroy the scrolls of the Bible. He set up a Gymnasium in Jerusalem, and forced some men to undergo “reverse circumcision” , and actually killed any parents who circumcized their own children.

This man exalted himself above the “Prince of the Host” (the High Priest of Israel), forbidding sacrifices and he even desecrated the Holy Place of the Temple of God , sacrificing a swine on the Altar.

My point is that since Daniel 8 is a vision for the Latter times and the time of the “end of the indignation”, there must yet be a recapitulation of all of this.

Persia (Iran) is currently flexing its muscles, having taken Iraq, entered into Syria to support Bashir Assad, developing a Nuclear weapons program, projecting Naval power against the United States in the Persian Gulf, and has sent terror squads across the globe. For decades now Iran/Persia has been able to do “what she wills” and no one has seriously stopped her.

But some power from the West will soon come and destroy Iran, swiftly, fiercely and unexpectedly. This power will have to do with the Euro-Greek world, perhaps Turkey or Greece itself or perhaps a coalition of people’s from the former Greek world.

This western power will also be broken into “four horns”, (powers) but the “one little horn” will become prominent. In his success, he will be magnified by many , even worshipped.(“Who is like the Beast, who is able to make war with Him”?)

I believe personally that some Western Prince will deal with all of Islam, Sunni and Shiite, and that the civilized world, weary of Islam and its constant predations, will rejoice when he takes off the gloves and smites them soundly. The little horn will seemingly make peace in the Holy Land and confirm a covenant which will allow Israel to resume animal sacrifices.

But as in the case of his predecessor, Antiochus Epiphanes, the little horn will enter the place of Jewish worship, cut off the sacrifices and proclaim himself to be God. This is what will start the great tribulation and the “time of Jacob’s trouble”. As Antiochus resisted “the prince of the covenant” , the little horn will actually dare to resist the “Great High Priest”, none less than the King Messiah, Jesus himself.
