Up to this point in time, I have not spoken much on what might happen between now and the coming of Ezekiel’s Fire. I’ve hinted at different possibilities, but I haven’t laid out the most likely scenarios. With all that I have been hearing lately, now is the time to talk about what might be happening over the next few months or years.
So, for the remainder of this week we’ll be talking about what you can expect as we move ever deeper into the most dangerous period of time in human history – The Last Days. And, I will begin with what I believe to be most likely – Nuclear War.
Before Ezekiel’s Fire – Nuclear War
Like most human beings, I tend to wear rose-colored glasses and err on the side of great expectations. I tend to believe that things will work out, and that any ‘rough patch’ can be quickly dealt with before going on. Unfortunately that is NOT the case.
Things are NOT going to get better, and the road down the other side of this mountain leads to the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
Will there be good moments on the way down?
I believe so, and I am certainly hoping for them. I believe that Ezekiel’s Fire will deal a temporary setback to the rise of the Antichrist Kingdom. There will also be the salvation of Israel and the gospel being sent around the world one last time. Those of us who have been complacent in our spiritual life will be forced to rely on God, and for that, we will shine brightly in the coming darkness.
The Cost Will Be High
The problem is that the cost will be very high. Millions and – more probably – billions of people will die. The survivors will suffer greatly, and many will be forced to live with a jackboot on their neck. And, I hate the thought of ANY of that.
But, our ancient enemy, Satan, started this war, and this is the price of victory. God will win, and there is a place in heaven prepared for all who willingly take their place in this fight.
So, what comes next?
I don’t think that we can be completely certain about the events that will define the next few months and years. But, I believe that there are some things that we can be relatively sure of.
The Fall Of The American Economy
One thing is for sure:
The American economy is going to collapse
There is no possible way for America’s economy to survive in it’s current form. It is just not possible. There is just too much debt and too many promises. And, America no longer produces much in the way of tangible goods. The only thing that America really excels at is pornography, war and heroin. So, the American Empire is destined to take its place upon the scrap heap of history.
Unfortunately, great empires tend to not go quietly into the night. And, America has become the most powerful empire in 16 centuries. Even Rome did not have the power that America has today – not even close. But, America’s great power will not be able to hold back her eventual fall.
The Fall Of The American Empire
So, the question remains:
How will America fall?
I would love to believe that it will be like the slow, gracious decline that popular history records of the British Empire. But, the Brits didn’t have nuclear weapons, and they didn’t have enemies able and willing to use them.
Nor were the Brits quite so hideously amoral as the current American government. There was at least some semblance of honor among the British imperialists. They certainly didn’t seem as bad as the amoral psychopaths that are running things in Washington, D.C.
So, when I heard Paul Craig Roberts talk about Washington’s interest in attacking Russia or China with nuclear weapons… well… I knew how that would end. America’s enemies will NOT allow the US to get in the first shot. They cannot allow that to happen.
So, how will America be destroyed?
Four Kinds Of Attack
To my mind, there are four possible kinds of attack that could be launched against the US:
And, they will probably use all four.
We are already in a financial war with Russia and China, and that war threatens to escalate further. And, a financial attack could be followed up with insurgency and terrorism within the US. Discontent with the US government is growing in America, so Russia and China will find fertile ground for covert activity – if they choose to go that route.
But, none of that will blunt America’s ability and willingness to use her nuclear arsenal to further her imperial aims. And America’s enemies MUST neutralize American nuclear weapons to have any hope of surviving the coming years – because America WILL use her nuclear arsenal when her empire begins to falter and then fall.
Chinese Bio Weapons
The Chinese are on record as having invested in biological weapons developmentinstead of Aircraft Carrier Battle Groups. The fact that they are now putting money into Aircraft Carriers means that they might have succeeded in their effort to develop an effective biological weapon system.
The question is whether such biological weapons could neutralize the personnel manning America’s nuclear weapons – which, by the way, includes the President of the United States.
Can the Chinese and Russians knock out America’s Nuclear Launch System?
A Successful Nuclear Strike On The US
I don’t know. I don’t see how they could do it permanently. But, they might be able to cause enough of a delay to allow Russia and China to take out America’s nuclear weapons capability.
There could be some combination of bio weapon attack along with a cyber attack that could slow, or even neutralize US weapons systems like nuclear silos and submarines. They could then launch an EMP attack coupled with direct nuclear strikes.
China has already successfully tested a nuclear-capable, hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV) that cannot be stopped by anti-missile defenses, and Russia has an ICBM in production with highly maneuverable, hypersonic warheads that also cannot be stopped by current anti-missile defenses.
Russia And China Backed Into A Corner
The point of this exercise is to show that Russia and China are capable of destroying the US. And, they may even be able to achieve this without direct harm to themselves.
Do they want to do this?
No, I do not believe so. However, if the reports are true that there are idiots in Washington - but, I repeat myself – who think that they can win a nuclear war…
Well, does that leave Russia and China with any choice?
No, it does not.
Worse, it appears that America is becoming more and more aggressive as she seeks to invade Russian and Chinese spheres of influence. It really does seem like the US is becoming the rabid world power that cannot be stopped without the use of force. And, there appears to be only one kind of weapon that has any chance of defeating the US:
