IMF propping up Ukraine, changing rules on money lending

79 percent of evangelicals believe ‘violence across the Middle East is a sign that the end times are nearer’

Death On A Pale Horse - Public DomainIs the return of Jesus Christ getting closer? According to a survey conducted by the Brookings Institute’s Center for Middle East Policy entitled “American Attitudes Toward The Middle East And Israel“, 79 percent of all evangelical Christians in America believe that “the unfolding violence across the Middle East is a sign that the end times are nearer”. In addition, the survey also discovered that evangelical Christians are also far more likely to be pro-Israel than the population as a whole, and most of them believe that Israel will control more territory than it currently possesses before Jesus comes back. Many “secular” Americans may find this strange, but evangelical Christians really do view everything that is going on in the Middle East through the lens of Bible prophecy. The vast majority of evangelicals truly believe that Jesus is actually coming back to our world, and most of them are fully convinced that Israel is going to play a leading role in the events of the last days.
Before I get to more of the survey results, I should disclose that I am a pro-Israel evangelical Christian that believes that the return of Jesus Christ will happen within my lifetime. So this survey was very interested in finding out what people like me think. With that in mind, here are more of the findings with my comments in italics after each point…
-Benjamin Netanyahu (16 percent) is the world leader that evangelicals admire most, followed by Ronald Reagan (11 percent) and Barack Obama (10 percent).
Comments: It should be no surprise that many evangelicals admire Benjamin Netanyahu more than any U.S. politician. But how did Barack Obama get 10 percent? Have 10 percent of all evangelical Christians in America gone completely insane?
39 percent of evangelicals say that Israel has too little influence on U.S. politics, while 23 percent say that Israel has too much influence on U.S. politics.
Comments: These numbers are much different than for the population as a whole. Overall, the survey found that 37 percent of all Americans believe that Israel has too much influence on U.S. politics, and only 18 percent of all Americans believe that Israel has too little influence on U.S. politics.
55 percent of evangelicals say that “a candidate’s position on Israel matters a lot to them” when deciding who to vote for.
Comments: I know that this is true for me. One of the very first things that I look for when evaluating any candidate is their position on Israel. If I find out that a candidate is anti-Israel, I completely rule out casting a vote for that candidate. Unfortunately, that means that there are hardly any politicians that I can actually vote for.
81 percent of evangelicals believe that Jesus will return to this planet.
Comments: So what are the other 19 percent thinking? Haven’t they read the end of the book? The Bible tells us over and over that Jesus is coming back. Sadly, I believe that this is just part of a larger trend. The church in America is increasingly moving away from interpreting the Bible literally, and that is a very bad thing.
75 percent of evangelicals believe that “things need to happen in Israel before Christ returns”.
Comments: This is very consistent with what the Bible says. The Bible indicates that the nation of Israel will play a starring role in the last days, and what we have seen so far is just the beginning.
63 percent of evangelicals believe that “for the rapture or Second Coming to occur it is essential for current-
day Israel to include all the land they believe was promised to Biblical Israel in the Old Testament”.
I definitely agree that Israel will end up possessing more land than it does right now. But I think that the wording of this question probably threw a lot of believers off. Were they referring to a pre-Tribulation rapture, a mid-Tribulation rapture, a pre-Wrath rapture or a rapture that comes at the end of the Tribulation?
Needless to say, these survey numbers are really surprising a lot of people – especially those that happen to be on the left end of the political spectrum. For instance, just consider the following comments from Politico editor Susan Glasser
These numbers are very striking on the end of days theology that these respondents claim motivate them,” Politico editor Susan Glasser said during a panel discussion after the release of the survey at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
“Some of these numbers are really stark,” she added. “I mean, the percentage of American Evangelicals, according to your survey, who believe the end of times is nigh, is kind of eye popping, at least for secular America or blue America.”
And I am sure that some of these statistics are going to provoke some very strong reactions from my regular readers as well.
You have seen what I think, so now it is your turn.
What is your response to the numbers that you have just seen? Please feel free to join the discussion by posting a comment below…

ISIS Manifesto Reveals Chilling Truth of European Sleeper Cells

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor.” (Zechariah 14:13)
Publications released by the Islamic State (ISIS) for its followers lay out a frightening plan for dispersal and dominance in Europe, reports The Investigative Project on Terrorism. According to the non-profit research group, a 99-page manifesto published by ISIS in January claims sleeper cells were established in Europe as early as 2012, right under the noses of security officials.
“They were quick to take the opportunity,” reads Black Flags From Rome, “of entering into the different countries of Europe (most probably as early as 2012). All this was happening under the nose of the European intelligence services whose job during this time (2012) was only to prevent European Muslims from entering Syria. (This shows how quick the Islamic groups were in planning ahead. Years before Europe even knew where its Muslim citizens were going – experienced Islamic fighters had already found safety in Europe.)”
According to the manifesto, refugees arriving from Syria to places like Italy had ties to ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups. “No doubt, some of these refugees were undercover fighters of Al Qa’idah and the Islamic State.”
The manifesto also explains that these sleeper agents are highly trained in combat techniques and encouraged to build ties with other cells as well as local communities. 
“These young Europeans had been professionally trained, and given training most specific to the context of the war they would battle within Europe,” the manifesto stated. They were instructed to wait for orders from self-proclaimed Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to “continue the Jihad and…seek revenge for the Western occupation of Muslim lands.”
The manifesto brags that its recruits are superior to al-Qaeda’s fighters, calling the latter “untrained” and “vulnerable.”
An updated version of the January manifesto, this one entitled Black Flags from The Islamic State, was released last month, in the wake of the Paris attacks. Of the assault on the French capital, the pamphlet says it was “one of the first organised attacks done by the Islamic State in Europe which involved a Network of Cells working together in an organized way.”
The two Black Flag documents, along with another called How to Survive in the West: A Mujahid’s Guide, point to a greater ISIS strategy in Europe, aimed at more than scaring foreign forces out of the Middle East. Rather, the goal is to “pave the way for the conquest of Rome” by any means possible.
The focus on Rome stems from a prophecy in a hadith found in Sahih Muslim from which the Black Flag manifestos draw their names. As cited in the Rome document, it reads:
“You will raid/attack Arabia and Allah will give you victory over it, then you will raid/attack Persia (Iran) and Allah will give you victory over it, then you will raid Rome (Italy) and Allah will give you victory over it, then you will raid/attack al-Dajjal (the AntiChrist) and Allah will give you victory over him.” [Saheeh Muslim [54/50]
Although the Rome in the hadith likely refers to the Roman Empire, ISIS chooses to interpret it as modern Rome, Italy. The group wishes to “buy time for the Armageddon in Syria to finish and for the Roman invaders to be defeated.” 
“The day these Roman (NATO) armies set off with their 960,000 soldiers to fight the Muslims in Dabiq (Syria), they should realise half the prophecy has already come into effect. The 2nd half of the prophecy is that they will lose, and Muslims will take over Rome…The next stop? The AntiChrist (al-Dajjal) in Israel,” explains yet another publication, Muslim Gangs: The Future of Muslims In The West.
Towards this end, the guide suggests using propaganda to drive a wedge between Muslim communities and their European hosts.

“Tell them stories of how we feel unsafe and how they make it a crime for us to morally support Muslims around the world, and they do not even let us leave the West if we want to. Tell them that they should not talk openly with the police, or else they could be taken away from their parents. These are realities Muslims face everyday, we need to make them aware. This will make the young generation stay distant from the police. They will hate it. The police will try to come to their schools to win their hearts and minds, but tell the kids: ‘Who do you trust more? Your fellow Muslim brothers, or the ones who imprison Muslims?'”
Among other strategies recommended are infiltrating to learn operational techniques, aligning with left-wing groups to enlist their support, and carrying out “lone wolf” attacks to prime Europe for a greater state of war.
“The West is not fertile for a full on war yet,” Muslim Gangs explains. “Rather, the increasing amount of attacks from both sides will gradually create a state of war.”
Recruits are to be attracted by the glamor of jihad and the promise of spiritual reward. White converts are especially coveted for the ease with which they can blend into society. Mosques are also mentioned as ideal bases of operations.
“As the Islamic militias begin to arm themselves and train each other, they will be able to fight more battles … This will make them even richer and more financially independent, buy even more advanced weaponry from the black market and cause even more damage to the enemies,” Black Flags says. “Muslim fighters from all European countries will continue the fight, breaking borders until they can reach Northern Rome.”

University of Mississippi renames ‘A Grand Ole Christmas’ to ‘Hotty Toddy Holiday’ so it won’t offend

In an effort to create a more inclusive environment, the University of Mississippi renamed its annual campus event “A Grand Ole Christmas” to “Hotty Toddy Holiday.”

For more than six years, the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) has celebrated the start of the Christmas season with a festive event called “A Grand Ole Christmas.” This year, however, the event was renamed “Hotty Toddy Holiday” in an effort to be more inclusive.

“We really wanted to change the atmosphere from last year and that would explain the name change,” Kayp Maye, co-director of special events for the Student Activities Association (SAA), told News Watch 99. “‘Grand Ole Christmas’ connoted too much Christianity on campus and so we wanted to have a more inclusive environment for the holidays this year.”

In addition to the name change, Maye noted that the official colors of this year’s festivities were red, blue, and silver, which he described as part of an effort to “attract a more mature audience” with a Winter Wonderland, rather than Christmas, theme.

Yet in an apparent contrast to the school’s professed pursuit of a more mature audience, activities included ice-skating, pictures with Santa, and arts & crafts. The event even had a mascot—a life-sized gingerbread man named “Gingy” reminiscent of the characters that regularly patrol theme parks such as Disney World.

The choice of “Hotty Toddy Holiday” as the new name is a reference to a popular cheer used by Ole Miss football fans, but its origins are difficult to trace, according to AL.com.

One explanation is that the wording is a corruption of the original cheer of “Heighty! Tighty!” but many also believe its acceptance was catalyzed by its similarity to “hot toddy,” a warmed-up whiskey drink some see as evoking the stadium’s “party” atmosphere.

Despite the SAA’s determination to disassociate this year’s event from the Christmas holiday, though, the celebration climaxed with the annual tree lighting, which still involved a “Christmas” tree, albeit without the traditional color scheme or ornamentation for which such decorations are best known.

Campus Reform reached out to spokespersons for both Ole Miss and the SAA, but had not received a response from either office by press time.

ISIS Is Planning Major Offensive Against Multiple Targets Inside the United States

There can be no doubt that ISIS is planning numerous and simultaneous attacks across the United States in the near future. The following cross-section of events clearly speak to the intent and also provides some clues about ISIS intended targets. I have sources that tell me of an impending ISIS campaign against the American people. Forget the deep cover sources. There is a suffiicent sample size of correlated data in order to justify that conclusion.

Judicial Watch Exposes the ISIS Invasion In April of 2015

ISIS base camp near El Paso.
Publicly, the United States and Mexico deny that there are ISIS terrorists operating near El Paso, TX. However, the rapid deployment of FBI personnel, following the release of a Judicial Watch disclosure which reported that ISIS maintains a base camp only a few miles from El Paso, TX., is noteworthy. The fact that the gathering of FBI brass at the border, and DHS was not invited, speaks to the deep division that is forming within the government on this issue.
The Judicial Watch report has come under intense criticism from Federal officials since it surfaced in April of 2015. However, the criticism is irrelevant and false. The presence of the ISIS camp is merely part of a bigger paramilitary force preparing to attack selected targets inside of the United States.

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that includes a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss. The implications are obvious.
According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, the Juárez Cartel helps ISIS terrorists move through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. The report goes on to statedocuments that east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the unguarded border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. The Judicial Watch  specifically state that these particular areas are targeted by ISIS because of “their understaffed municipal and county police forces as well as the already existing relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling”.

ISIS Targets Identified

According to Judicial Watch, “ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM”.

The ISIS Base Camp Is Part of a Much Bigger Terrorist Organization

The Common Sense Show has discovered that there is incontrovertible evidence that criminal drug cartels, like Los Zetas and the Sinaloa’s have not only used MS-13 gangsters as hit men and child sex traffickers, but so has the Juarez Cartel (partners with the ISIS leaders of the base camp near El Paso). Also participating in this terror network are members of the Barrio Azteca gang and the purpose is to enforce their will upon the border region between Mexico and the United States.
Los Zetas have also conducted training in parts of Central and South America, and have even allowed MS-13 gangsters to lead in operations as when “El Comandante Kilo” operated in San Fernando on behalf of Los Zetas. This training consists of two parts, military training and assassination. In plain corporate language, the Mexican drug cartels are outsourcing paramilitary activities such as assassinations and terrorism and their new friends, ISIS, has a base camp only a few miles from American soil. And as I covered in the Spring of 2014, ISIS is getting its weapons from the Sanchez Paredes drug cartel and and receiving training at a base camp outside of El Salvador.
Farooq Saeed, who is now known correctly as Syed Rizwan Farook, has been linked to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, according to several reports. Also, we now know he and his wife had 19 assault rifles and radio controlled explosives designed to take out first responders. Fortunately, they did not go off. It is now being reported that he had a large deposit made into his bank account. Where did the San Bernardino mass murder get his support, please reread the preceeding paragraph.
The San Bernardino attack was another in the long line of probing attacks designed to gather information about our response times and strategies of critical incident interventions.

Mexican/Middle Eastern Terrorists Are Equipped with Military Grade Weapons

Here is more detail about the likely that the San Bernardino terrorist had access to obtain.
A very disturbing and recent report from the International Assessment and Strategy Center stated that MS-13 is moving away from handguns to the use of AK-47’s, along with grenades, rocket propelled grenade launchers, and light anti-tank weapons! The same think tank also reported that MS-13 gang recently acquired multiple shoulder-fired SA-7 anti-aircraft missile launchers obtained  from an open arms market in El Salvador from left over former civil war stockpiles. MS-13, and now ISIS, are equipping its forces with these weapons as they can easily knockout helicopters and airplanes from the skies and these weapons can be obtained for a mere $15,000. This is chump change for a gang associated with the drug cartels. The same report went on to state that MS-13 has begun to smuggle drugs, weapons and human beings for the Zetas. MS-13 members are being trained at Zetas camps outside San Salvador and the training includes high level military training being conducted by member of Hamas and Hezbollah.

Think TET offensive from the Viet Nam War. MS-13 and now, ISIS, are well-armed enough to take over cities by knocking out the headquarters of local police forces in a simultaneous series of attacks in which WMD’s are introduced on American soil. This belief is reinforced in the Judicial Watch report. However, if you still think this is far-fetched, please keep reading.

Texas Ranger Issues Warning About ISIS Attack In April of 2015

Texas Rangers preparing for ISIS incursions.
Texas Rangers preparing for ISIS incursions.
In late April of 2015, a Texas Ranger wrote to me and warned me that ISIS had enough manpower and equipment to launch a significant attack in Texas. Here is an excerpt to that communication:
“…The main reason that I am writing to you is to encourage you to keep writing on the growing threat of infiltration in Texas and I suspect other states as well. The infiltration I am writing about is not just Special Forces that are going to conducting covert drills in our state. that is concerning and I agree with you this involves martial law.  For now I am talking about ISIS and the danger that they pose to all of us. Our intelligence indicates that they have enough manpower & firepower to subdue a small town…”
I am convinced, that on a predetermined signal similar to the Viet Cong Tet Offensive, a coordinated and massive attack will be launched against the United States. What we have been witnessing up to this point, are probing actions. ISIS and friends are testing our response times, the nature of our first response, etc. The following are a partial list of ISIS offensives against the people of the United States that Obama and the MSM refuses to recognize the events for what they are, a Fifth column invasion of the United States which will result in martial law followed by World War III.

ISIS Fires Upon Border Patrol Helicopter In June 2015

Shots fired!
La Bota Ranch near Laredo.
The Laredo Morning Times reported that a Border Patrol helicopter was shot at and was struck on Friday evening near La Bota Ranch, according to Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar. Sheriff Cuellar said that out of the five shots, two were confirmed to have hit the helicopter.
A Spokesperson for the Border Patrol, Sara Melendez, said the helicopter landed safely and no injuries were reported. It has not been confirmed if the shots were fired on the U.S. or Mexico side.
A later Border Patrol statement says the crew of the Office of Air and Marine helicopter was patrolling the US-Mexico border near the banks of the Rio Grande. According to the Border Patrol, bullets hit the rite side of the aircraft and the rotor blade, which could have produced catastrophic results, but the pilot was able to land safely with no injuries to Border Patrol personnel.
The MSM coverup instantly sprang into action as CNN reported that the shots came from inside of Mexico. Not so, according to my Border Patrol source. This was ISIS. The Border Patrol knew it and so did Obama.

F-16 Crash at the Mexican Border In June of 2015

F-16 brought down, not shot down, at the Mexican border.
Russian proxy forces, armed with Russian EMP technology are responsible for bringing down an F-16 piloted by an Iraqi general flying near the Mexican border. In this Beta test of new Russian technology. Russia fired the first shots of World War III.

An Iraqi pilot who had been training in the United States for four years was flying an F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft that crashed in southern Arizona, a spokesman for the Iraqi defense minister said last Thursday. Brigadier General Rasid Mohammed Sadiq Hasan was alone in the F-16 Fighting Falcon when it went down during a training mission on Wednesday. The crash occurred near the Mexican border.
I have two confidential sources, one who is on the inside, and another who has connections to those on the inside and they are both independently saying the same thing. “The crash of this F-16 plane was no accident”. The circumstantial evidence forms a “preponderance of the evidence” which supports the fact that Russia is ultimately responsible for the take down of this particular F-16. ISIS carried out the attack.
Now there are some who are falsely or incorrectly stating that the plane was shot down by a hand held stinger missile which was found in the desert near the crash site of Douglas, AZ. This claim is rubbish. The F-16 is armed with counter measures and it is not likely that a hand held missile stinger could have shot that plane down given the evasive maneuvers that could have been employed at 10,000 feet, the reported altitude that the plane was flying at when it began its fall from the sky. .
In actuality, what has happened and what those close to the investigation are saying, have shaken the U.S. military to the core. This F-16 was not shot down, it was brought down. My sources have stated that General Lloyd Austin, commander of US Central Command, along with key members of his staff have stated that they are investigating this crash not as an accident and not as a shoot down, but as a take down, a take down by a localized and focused EMP blast aimed at the plane.
The proliferation of EMP weapons has expanded beyond previously unimagined levels. There are how to manuals on how to make your own. However, the type of weaponry designed to take down an F-16 flying at about 10,000 feet would have to be amazingly sophisticated and would likely be guided by portable radar with the assistance of lasers.
A localized and very crude EMP weapon is demonstrated here in this video.
We also know that Russia exported EMP weapons to North Korea in 2014, and this leads us into a very novel way to look at the recent crash of the F-16 at the Mexican Border. After reading the following paragraphs which exposes the interconnections between Russia, the known terrorist groups, the Mexican drug cartels and ISIS, it is easy to conclude that Russia is providing localized EMP weapons to more than just North Korea.


On December 6, 2015, the TNT TV show, Agent X, portrayed a scene in which the Vice-President's helicopter was brought down by a localized EMP gun.

Russia’s Terrorist Connections Connected to the F-16 Takedown

We have case of the knee bone being connected to the thigh bone…It has been admitted to in the main stream media, since 2007, that the Mexican drug cartels are openly involved in Middle Eastern terrorist groups. My DEA source has implicated the Peruvian drug cartel, the Sanchez-Peredes cartel as the arms and drug supplier to the Sinoloa cartel. The Sanchez-Peredes get their arms from Hamas and are also tied into the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and Hezbollah (i.e. the CIA-created ISIS as exposed in detail by ARSOF’s Scott Bennett). And it is well-known that Russia and Hamas are closely aligned as Russia has supplied the government of Syria with Russian weapons and used Hamas to deliver the weapons. This is where the shooting down of the F-16 gets very interesting. All of these groups are tied to ISIS.

The Chattanooga Assassin In July of 2015

By now most Americans, in one way or another, have heard of the tragic event in Chattanooga, TN., in which Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez attacked two separate military facilities which resulted in the death of four American servicemen. The local papers in Chattanooga have portrayed the assassin as a normal member of a normal family who was a productive member of the community. Already, the mainstream media is spinning this event as a deranged gunman gone crazy and when the smoke clears, President Obama will renew his cries for removing guns from the hands of American citizens.
There were warnings that this Jihadist murder was going to carry out his heinous crime from excerpts of the two following posts made less than three days before the attack.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the Name of Allah (SWT), the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Here is a telling excerpt from a web post made by the assassin less than thrON sENSEee days before his horrible act, as published in “Understanding Islam: The Story of the Three Blind Men”. 
“…Take your study guide, the Quran and Sunnah, with strength and faith, and be firm as you live your short life in this prison called Dunya. Allah (SWT) says live for this life and the hereafter according to their length. Rasulullah says the life on this world compared to the hereafter is like a drop compared to an ocean”.
(Editor’s Note: Nineteen times in the Quran, the teachings call for the murder of nonbelievers. How did the NSA miss these website posts by this soon-to-be murderer?)
“…Brothers and sisters don’t be fooled by your desires, this life is short and bitter and the opportunity to submit to allah may pass you by. Take his word as your light and code and do not let other prisoners, whether they are so called “Scholars” or even your family members, divert you from the truth. If you make the intention to follow allahs way 100 % and put your desires to the side, allah will guide you to what is right…”
isis tweet chatanooga prime
This was an attack by ISIS and it was an intelligence gathering attack.
Google Earth map showing the proximity of the two shootings.
Abdulazeez drew authorities away from his intended target with a fake attack. It is very likely that this was another Beta test to draw law enforcement into an ambush, while carrying out the primary and intended attack miles away. This is classic Sun Tzu strategy.


I could go on, but the readers should grasp the main idea. American are being probed by an increasingly sophisticated enemy who is well-armed and very well financed. They are preparing to unleash holy hell upon the United States. Their targets will include, airliners, schools, malls and anywhere in which soft kill targets (i.e. gun free zones) exist. The only answer to this threat for as many Americans as possible to arm themselves and carry weapons everywhere they go.

Image result for DID THE SHEMITAH

By Bob O’Dell

While many were looking for major financial collapse in the United States as the recent Shemitah year ended on Sept. 13, in hindsight the most notable change we have faced since then is more terrorism. President Obama made our sense of that marked change official on Sunday night when he addressed the nation about San Bernardino and said “the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase.” Yet, as scary as that is, in the financial world the economic data are reasonably strong, and the stock market is once again approaching all-time highs.

This raises the very reasonable question: Has the Shemitah theory failed?

Not only has the Shemitah theory not failed, after reading the story below, you might consider God to be the hero. His own words in Leviticus are explaining our current situation exactly.

This summer, an Orthodox Jew and I (a Christian) embarked upon a very unusual project: to co-write a book to explain many new Christian theories from a Jewish perspective. We were trying to bring together the Blood Moons, the Shemitah, the blessing/cursing of Israel and the coming Jubilee, and see if we could make sense of them all as different facets of one large storyline around God’s purposes for Israel. “Israel FIRST!” went to print in mid-August, a full month before the Shemitah year ended and two weeks before the stock market scare in late August.

Regarding the Shemitah, we had a sense that while this topic was being treated respectfully by Christians, it was being viewed superficially. Think of it like an iceberg. It is easy to see that part above the water, but most of the iceberg lies below. Jewish scholars spent hundreds of years tackling topics in Scripture attempting to dig out connections, looking for ever-larger, ever-fuller views. It would be unwise to think that any single book on the subject would be the last word, ours included! But, that is no excuse for all researchers, including us, to refrain from attempting to add more insight.

In one of the chapters of our book, we revealed a theory about the Shemitah we called “God’s Seven Year Forecast.” The thinking went like this:

What if, rather than focusing so much on the last year of a seven-year cycle, we were to step back and take a larger view: the transition of one seven-year cycle to the next one. This view is found all over scripture. For instance, God told Joseph and then Pharaoh that He was planning two seven-year cycles back to back – one cycle of plenty followed by one cycle of famine. (See Genesis 41:1-38.)

To that simple idea, next we added a fascinating observation made by Jonathan Cahn’s in his book “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” where he remarked that the recent history of the United States was written in 28 year cycles: 1917-1945, 1945-1973, 1973-2001. Each of these is comprised of four seven-year-long long cycles, each ending in a Shemitah year.

Given the dramatic and traumatic events that have occurred since 2001 in our country, we asked ourselves two questions:

1. Did another 28-year cycle begin in 2001?
2. Is this 28-year cycle especially critical to the future of our nation?

With these questions in mind, we looked for sequences of sevens in scripture and found a passage in Leviticus 26 that seemed to jump off the page. After introducing the Shemitah and Jubilee in chapter 25, God goes on to describe in chapter 26 a sequence of increasing judgments that will be brought upon Israel in four successive stages in verses 16-33, continuing to escalate until the land once again enjoys its Sabbaths in verse 34. Here is where most researchers dismiss these verses as being unrelated to any other nation than Israel. But we asked, “Could this be a general blueprint for God’s interaction with a nation that turns away from Him?”

Then we looked at the first set of judgments in the list to see how well they mapped to what has happened in the USA from 2001-2008. The sequence begins with verse 16:

“I will appoint over you a sudden terror.”

This seems to point to 9/11, as there has been no event like it in modern history, an event that has changed not only the USA but the entire Western world.

That first list in Leviticus includes other items that can be placed into that seven-year period, but not all occurring in 2001, including items like economic stagnation.

Moving on to the second list, the one that per this theory would need to apply to 2008-2015, it begins in verse 19 with:

“I will also break down your pride of power.”

While Americans are divided on many things, there probably isn’t a single change in the most recent seven years that is not more universally recognized and understood than the idea that the USA no longer carries the same level of respect around the world, the “pride of power” it used to have.

That list then continues with other items that can be placed into that seven-year period, but not all occurring just in 2008, including items of economic hardship that were worse than in the first seven-year period. Other items in that list can be mapped into the seven-year period from 2008-2015.

Then we said in our book that if the first two patterns were correct, then the next seven years, the new seven years we just entered in September, should begin with verse 22:

“I will let loose among you the beasts of the field, which will bereave you of your children. …”

We wondered this summer, what this phrase might mean, and we wrote that the “beasts of the field” could include “lone wolf attacks.” But if that were the case, there should be a significant increase in them beginning Sept. 14. We also saw in this same list a series of things that looked less like economic hardship, and more like loss of life, and even the loss of the previous way of life. We concluded the discussion of these seven years with: “Therefore, we may see that the financial correction this time around may not be as drastic as it was in 2008; but if that is the case, then the response will be more deadly this time around, God forbid. It will be felt much more personally.”

Since we wrote the book, the world has seen a new phase of terrorism beginning on the Temple Mount on Sept. 13, with the first death occurring in Jerusalem on Sept. 14, followed by deaths in Judea and Samaria, followed by the Oregon shooting on Oct. 1, the Ankara, Turkey, peace rally bombing on Oct. 12, UC Merced stabbings on Nov. 4 and many other events leading up to the Paris attacks on Nov. 13, and now San Bernardino on Dec. 2. Most of the terrorism victims have been young people, reminding of the scripture “I will let loose among you the beasts of the field, which will bereave you of your children. …”

The reference to beasts of the field is relevant given the fact that there is no way to reason with these terrorists. Interestingly, the first person in scripture to be compared to a wild beast was Ishmael.

God is the hero for calling these things out well in advance and laying out a blueprint for what his national judgment plan may look like. How much more foundational it is to have a blueprint laid out in scripture than just in some individual’s dream or vision.

The good news is that according to these very same passages, the downward spiral toward disaster can be averted at any time through national repentance. In such repentance, I strongly believe that it is up to us as the church to lead the way.

Finally, with regard to financial impact, we should not assume that we are out of the woods. The current list alludes to financial downturn coming soon. I may discuss that more in a future column.

Russia Prepares For Jet Fights With NATO Over Syria

Russia is now equipping its Su-34 fighters with air-to-air missiles in preparation for potential dogfights with NATO over Syria.

“Today, Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers have made their first sortie equipped not only with high explosive aviation bombs and hollow charge bombs, but also with short- and medium-range air-to-air missiles,” Russian Air Force spokesman Igor Klimov told RT. “The planes are equipped with missiles for defensive purposes.”

He also added the missiles are “capable of hitting air targets within a 60km radius.”

It’s obvious that Russia is not equipping its jets with air-to-air missiles to fight ground-based ISIS militants but rather to prevent Turkish F-16s from shooting down more of its planes.

Turkey, a NATO ally, shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber on Nov. 24, claiming it had violated Turkish airspace, but Moscow rejected the claim.

Numerous analysts also pointed out that even if the Russian jet did cross through the tiny strip of Turkey bordering Syria, it would have only been in Turkey for a matter of seconds.

“In the wake of the downing, President Vladimir Putin on Saturday signed a decree imposing a package of economic sanctions against Turkey,” RT reported. “The measures include banning several Turkish organizations and the import of certain goods.”

“Under the sanctions, the visa-free regime for Turkish nationals traveling to Russia will be suspended starting next year.”

Turkey responded by reportedly blocking Russian ships from passing through the Strait of Bosphorus linking the Black Sea to the Mediterranean, which prevents Russia’s Black Sea fleet from traveling to the rest of the world or even back to its home port.

But Putin has also ordered 150,000 Russian troops deployed into Syria while also sending another 7,000 Russian troops with tanks, rocket launchers and artillery to the Turkish border at Armenia with orders to be “fully combat ready.”

Even though Turkey initiated its stand-off with Russia by intentionally shooting down the Su-24 near the Syrian border, it could potentially invoke Article 5 of the NATO Treaty which requires all NATO members, including the U.S., to come to its defense if Turkey goes to war with Russia.
