Just in the First Few Weeks of this Year!
All of this happened in the first week of the New Year! Just four trading days into the New Year 1.6 trillion dollars in market value has been destroyed, according to the S&P Global 1200 report that was just released. Most of the blame is being put on the critical state of the Chinese stock market, which more than once triggered their built in “circuit breaker” which halts trading immediately should losses reach a certain amount. The US stock market has subsequently taken a huge hit with investor uncertainty at an all-time high. An already volatile Middle East is getting worse as conflict with Saudi Arabia and Iran escalated. This conflict has a long list of potential outcomes including skyrocketing oil prices and expanded armed conflict that could draw in much of the world, according to several conservative radio talk show hosts. We have our Army Rangers being trapped and killed in Afghanistan, North Korea successfully testing hydrogen bombs, two Iraqi men arrested in California and Texas on terrorism-related charges, and President Obama announcing executive action on guns. There was an attempted execution of a Philadelphia police officer. The suspect gave a full confession, saying he committed his crime in the name of Islam.
“Islam in a Nutshell”
This, neither the Chinese nor the Russians, represents the greatest threat to the world and might be the fulfillment of the book of Revelation in the Holy Bible. Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: ‘Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. ‘Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well. Here’s how it works: As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part, be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in: United States — Muslim 0.6%, Australia — Muslim 1.5%, Canada — Muslim 1.9%, China — Muslim 1.8%, Italy — Muslim 1.5%, Norway — Muslim 1.8%. At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in: Denmark — Muslim 2%Germany — Muslim 3.7%, United Kingdom –Muslim 2.7%, Spain — Muslim 4%, Thailand — Muslim 4.6% From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in: France — Muslim 8%, Philippines — Muslim 5%, Sweden — Muslim 5%, Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%, The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5% Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%. At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings, suicide bombers and massive murders. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in: Guyana — Muslim 10%, India — Muslim 13.4%, Israel — Muslim 16%, Kenya — Muslim 10%, Russia — Muslim 15% After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad, militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in: Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8% . At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in: Bosnia — Muslim 40%, Chad — Muslim 53.1%, Lebanon — Muslim 59.7% From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in: Albania — Muslim 70%, Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%, Qatar — Muslim 77.5%., Sudan — Muslim 70% After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and is on-going in:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%, Egypt — Muslim 90%, Gaza — Muslim 98.7%, Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%, Iran — Muslim 98%, Iraq — Muslim 97%, Jordan — Muslim 92%, Morocco — Muslim 98.7%, Pakistan — Muslim 97%, Palestine — Muslim 99%, Syria — Muslim 90%, Tajikistan — Muslim 90%, Turkey — Muslim 99.8%, United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%, 100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan — Muslim 100%, Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%, Somalia — Muslim 100%, Yemen — Muslim 100%. Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. ‘Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel.’ — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’ It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran.
To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable by death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate. Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates are higher than the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers.
Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century. Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the hen-house. The wolves will be herding the sheep!
NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant? Just wondering. Devout Muslims are being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn’t this make you feel safer already? That should make the United States much safer, huh! Was it not “Devout Muslim men” that flew planes into U.S. buildings during the 9-11 events? We must never forget this. Was it not a Devout Muslim man who killed 13 at Fort Hood ? (He killed “From within” – don’t forget that). Also: This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply: Theologically – no, because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia religiously – no, because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256). Scripturally – no, because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran. Geographically – no because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day. Socially – no, because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Politically – no because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. Domestically – no because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34). Intellectually – no because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt. Philosophically – no because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic. Spiritually – no because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ the Christian God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names. Therefore, after much study and deliberation we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. – – – They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you will, it’s still the truth. You had better believe it! The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. This religious war is bigger than most know or understand. Can a Muslim be a good soldier? Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, opened fire at Ft. Hood and Killed 13. He is a good Muslim! I have the biblical answer to the problem. The Great Commission! This is nothing new. You and I were given the Great Commission to preach the Gospel to every creature. This includes the Muslims! When is the last time you witnessed to a Muslim?
For many years my best friend was an ex-Muslim, ―Jamma‖. Some of you might remember him. I put some of his articles in this newsletter but he went to the Lord some years ago. One great DVD to give to both Christians and Muslims is by another ex-Muslim, Shahram Hadian titled: Islam’s American Agenda. Available for a gift of any amount this month.
A Texan’s viewpoint Simple and accurate, Rattlesnake Logic:
As long as we insist on maintaining the “moral high ground”, we will NEVER win the war on terrorism! We’re in a conflict which we absolutely INSIST in playing by the rules – against a maniacal group who has NO rules! Rattlesnake Logic in dealing with terrorists. After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals and about why and how they can live among us and still hate us. A Texan explained it:
Here in west Texas I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter. I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison.
I don’t stop to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it WILL bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a “meaningful dialogue” with it. I just kill it. I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me. I just kill them.
I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are, because (a) it won’t tell me and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one. I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake. I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect what they can do to me and my family? Yes! And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve. I kill them. As a country, we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists’ are telling the world their goal is to kill Americans and destroy our way of life. They have posted graphic videos on the internet showing them beheading Americans. They are serious.
They are exactly like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to start acting accordingly! I love this country. It’s the government I’m afraid of! Why? Look who’s new in the White House! Arif Alikhan, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S.Department of Homeland Security Mohammed Elibiary, Homeland Security Adviser Rashad Hussain, Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Salam al-Marayati, Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and is its current executive director Imam Mohamed Magid, Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America Eboo Patel, Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships This is flat-out scary! The foxes are now officially living in the hen house…
Now ask me why I am very concerned! Do you feel OK with this? How can this happen? – and when will we wake up? We are quiet while our country is being drastically changed!
Just 100 Years Ago!!!
The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.
Fuel for cars was only sold in drug stores.
Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.
The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 MPH.
The average US wage was 22 cents per hour.
The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.
More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.
Sugar cost four cents a pound.
Eggs were fourteen cents for a dozen.
Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.
Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.
The American flag had 45 stars.
The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.
Crossword puzzles and iced tea hadn’t been invented yet.
There was neither a Mother‘s Day nor a Father‘s Day.
Two out of every 10 adults could not read or write.
Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.
There were about 230 reported murders in the entire United States!
The internet, cell phones, computers, etc. were not even thought about. It is amazing how fast everything around us is changing.
It is impossible to imagine what it would be like in another 100 years if the Lord tarries.
Daniel 12: 4 (KJV) “…even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
We are seeing the signs of the “end times” everywhere…
ARE YOU READY? John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. In John 3:17, we know this because…”For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” How many have you lead to the Lord this last week? How many will you be witnessing to this week?
Another GeoengineeringWatch Billboard Goes Up On A Major Highway
With the continuing help of friends and allies in the battle to expose and stop climate engineering, another geoengineeringwatch.org billboard has been put up on a major US highway. This latest billboard is in New Mexico, on I-25 between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Billboards have a visual impact that helps to breakdown the well programmed denial of our society. The “normalcy bias” of our population is so profound that most have no idea what is going on in the skies above their heads day after day, already for decades. When the subject of climate engineering is brought up to the uninformed, the “conspiracy theorist” term is often the conditioned response without any conscious thought or consideration. Psychological studies prove that those who question are sane, those who blindly accept whatever they are told by “official” sources have psychological deficiencies. The more a particular threat is pointed out or “advertised”, the more possibility there is of breaking down the denial. Thus, the anti-geoengineering billboard campaign continues. To learn more of what is taking place see the DVD, What on Earth are They Spraying? Available for a gift of any amount this month.
Expert: North Korea H-bomb is ‘super-EMP weapon’ Explosion over U.S. could send nation back into agrarian age
While North Korea last month was hyperbolically bragging about having exploded a test hydrogen bomb, some nuclear weapons experts were downplaying the event because of its low-kiloton yield and relatively small seismic wave. In fact, the White House said the results from various monitors simply weren‘t consistent with a hydrogen bomb, which can be far more powerful than an atomic bomb. But one top specialist says the monitor results and North Korea‘s claims align fully with the scenario of a device designed for a low yield, yet emitting an enhanced amount of gamma rays. Peter Pry, an expert on electromagnetic pulse weapons, told WND the explosion indeed was such a device.
Pry said Pyongyang‘s latest test, which followed three others each in the range of 10 kilotons or less, was ―another kind of H-Bomb,‖ a neutron bomb, or enhanced radiation weapon such as a super-EMP weapon. Such weapons constitute, essentially, a ―very low-yield H-Bomb that typically has yields of 1-10 kilotons, just like the North Korean device,‖ he said. North Korea has been conducting underground nuclear tests since February 2013, all of which have been of low-kiloton yield. Pry previously has warned that Pyongyang was working on a low-yield radiation bomb with very high emissions of gamma rays.
A year ago, Pry told WND that North Korea was working on such a device, but that the Obama administration denied it had developed miniaturized nuclear warheads and missiles to deliver them. The denial, Pry said, came despite an assessment by both the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency that such do indeed exist. ―President Obama himself began this big lie amidst the 2013 nuclear crisis when North Korea was threatening to make nuclear missile strikes against the U.S. and its allies,‖ Pry said.
Pry is a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency and a former staff director of the congressionally mandated EMP commission that examined the likely effects of an EMP on the U.S. national grid system and unprotected electronics. He also is the executive director of the congressional advisory Task Force on National and Homeland Security and the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum. Pry, like other experts on EMP, was concerned that the North Koreans could launch a missile with a satellite that could constitute a nuclear device designed to explode on command at a high altitude over a highly populated area of a highly technical society such as the United States.
Such an explosion would be capable of knocking out the nation‘s already vulnerable electrical grid system and all of the life-sustaining critical infrastructures that depend on it. From food supply chains, fuel supply systems, communications, banking and more, all grid-dependent systems could suffer. ―It should be understood that the challenge is almost entirely political – technical solutions have been known for a half century and expected expenses are relatively minor,‖ Cooper said. North Korea said it had detonated an underground hydrogen bomb, drawing immediate condemnation from the United States, Britain, Japan, South Korea and even China, which until now was thought to have some influence over the North Korean leadership. However, China was apparently not advised of the detonation beforehand. North Korea‘s KCNA website made the announcement that it had tested a ―miniaturized‖ hydrogen bomb ―in the most perfect manner.‖ ―(North Korean leader) Kim Jong-un could be telling the truth,‖ Pry told G2Bulletin.
―Indeed, all four North Korean nuclear tests look like a super-EMP weapon because of their very low yield. That the ‗Dear Leader‘ described the latest test as an H-Bomb is further evidence that North Korea‘s mysterious nuke is a super-EMP warhead.‖ Pry was referring to a so-called enhanced radiation weapon, or neutron bomb, designed to generate enhanced gamma rays which in turn cause the super-EMP effect. An H-bomb of identical explosive yield of a fission, or atomic, bomb is a neutron bomb that will emit some 10 times the amount of neutron radiation. In an atomic device, the total radiation pulse energy composed of gamma rays and neutrons is only 5 percent of the entire energy released. In a neutron bomb, it is closer to 40 percent. In addition, the neutrons emitted by a neutron bomb have a much higher average energy level than those released during a fission reaction. North Korea previously has threatened the U.S. with a nuclear attack, broadcasting dramatized videos of such attacks on the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Pyongyang, through its KCNA website, also said it will continue developing nuclear weapons until the U.S. drops its ―vicious, hostile policy to isolate the Hermit Kingdom.
About Those Low Gas Prices…
I‘m sure you‘ve heard about the gas prices being under $2.00 per gallon. Actually, they‘ve been under $1.00 a gallon in many places! In fact, ABC News reported on Jan. 18th there were two gas stations across the street from each other in a price war where the price got down to only 54 cents a gallon! Therefore, the gas stations have been making a ton of money from us. But there‘s a much bigger picture here! The last time gas prices even got close to being so low was in 2008. A Shemitah year!
This lead into the housing crash; which many never recovered from. Last year was a Shemitah year where problems arose again but not as much as many anticipated. But this last Shemitah year brought us into the current Jubilee year. It doesn‘t end until this September. You can few the prices of oil and gas as a title wave. Just before a title wave, the water is drawn from the land where the seabed is exposed. The further it is drawn back, the larger the title wave. Yes, it‘s a good time to prepare for this coming tidal wave!
There Goes Wal-Mart?
I always thought if Wal-Mart goes out, this country may also. On Jan 15th Wal-Mart announced they are closing down 269 stores, but most of these are mini stores in poverty areas. It‘s just a sign of the times.
A Word from Dr. David Reagan
It seems like almost every week these days I am confronted with a fresh attack on the concept of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Some of the attacks are frivolous, some are silly, some are mean-spirited, and some are based on misconceptions. Few are substantive and biblical in nature. A frivolous one that is repeated ad infinitum is the assertion that the word, Rapture, cannot even be found in the Bible.
If that were true, it would be irrelevant for the names of several biblical concepts are not found in the Bible — such as Trinity, Shekinah and the word, Bible! And then there are words we use all the time to describe attributes of God, none of which can be found in the Bible. I have in mind words like “omniscience” which means all-knowing, “omnipotence” which means all-powerful, and “omnipresence” which means present everywhere. But the fact of the matter is that the word, Rapture, can be found in the Bible. It appears in the Latin Bible in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, where English language Bibles refer to believers being “caught up” to meet Jesus in the sky when He returns for His Church. A word doesn’t have to be in English for it to be a biblical word. After all, the Latin Bible was the definitive translation used in the Western world for over a thousand years (400 AD to 1530). A silly attack on the Pre-Trib Rapture that has been bouncing around since 1973 is the idea that the concept came from a 15 year old demon-possessed Scottish girl who began to have visions in the 1830s about the return of the Lord. Every Pre-Trib advocate I know of is very much concerned about societal problems and speaks out on them forcibly. Nonetheless, the myth is perpetuated in articles like the one that was recently published by an English publication called Christian Today. In the article, the author referred to those who believe in a Pre-Trib Rapture as “the fundamentalist fringe” who are “burying their heads in the sand” and who have a “laissez-faire attitude toward societal problems” — all because they are “zombie Christians that are merely souls waiting for heaven, rather than ambassadors for Christ.” This is a totally fictional straw man. One characteristic of all these attacks is a lack of emphasis on biblical evidence that the Pre-Trib doctrine is invalid. Most of these critics try to characterize the Pre-Trib doctrine as something Satanic in nature that is designed to destroy people’s faith once the Tribulation begins and there is no Rapture. I think the exact opposite is true. I believe Satan hates the Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine with a passion because it gives Christians great hope.
A bit of Hope…
I believe many Christians are going to be freaking out as things get much worse this year; especially if we experience something like the power grid going out or something. Not to mention the persecutions of believers! Some who have always believed in the pre-tribulation rapture teachings have already changed their view thinking God is going to pour out His wrath upon true born-again believers. This is a false teaching that has been around for some time. Yes, it‘s always a wise thing to prepare for the hard times coming. We should also prepare for helping the lost in order to have the opportunity of leading them to Christ! But for right now, for those of you who need a little hope yourselves, we have a new DVD titled: 7 Irrefutable Reasons You Can Trust in the Pre-Trib Rapture Position. This is with Andy Woods. This is available for a gift of any amount this month.
The 7 NEW Signs of the Apocalypse 2016
It seems as we watch the news today, we are also seeing reports of things that are to take place during the tribulation period. We just obtained a new DVD on this so up to date that it even deals with areas as recent as the beginning of this year! If you would like a copy, it‘s available for a gift of any amount. Simply titled: The 7 New Signs of the Apocalypse 2016.
Many of you are already members of our 30 Club. Thank you for that! You guys are helping me to pay for the airtime! Plus this is a great deal for all. As mentioned, DVDs are normally $20.00 each but through the 30 Club you receive all DVDs aired, an $80.00 value for a gift of $30.00 or more each month. If you‘ve not yet joined the 30 Club, you might want to do so now. It looks like 2016 is going to be one very interesting year! Just let me know when you write if you‘d like to join our 30 Club. Thanks! -Jim
As you know, we had to leave our Phoenix and Spokane stations. Both became way too expensive. Phoenix, $1000.00 per month and Spokane $1200.00, but guess what happened! The Phoenix station moved the Cultivate broadcast to 6:00 A.M. but for free! And the Spokane station agreed to only $375.00 per month! And on top of that, I was told the Spokane station received an anonymous gift of $375.00 for last month for the Cultivate broadcast. This means last month was free! Nothing like this has ever happened to this ministry before! See what happens when you guys pray? Thank you so much for your prayers!
As we draw closer to our blessed hope, exposing the works of darkness will be more intense so I just ask for the Lord to strengthen me and at the same time, bind the enemy from this ministry, myself and anyone else that‘s associated with it. Thanks!
I just wanted to say again thank you so much to those of you who pray for and support this ministry. Great shall be your reward in heaven! Yours because His,
