"For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened". Matthew 7:8. The tremendous resource of prayer is far too often neglected by far too many Christians. If nothing is standing between us and the Lord to keep us from asking effectively (sin, unbelief, selfish motives, etc.), then God has promised to act when we ask by giving us our request or something better. Note just a few of the many promises to those who ask: "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you". James 1:5. "Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete". John 16:24. "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him". 1 John 5:14-15. "You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.". John 14:14. "And receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him". 1 John 3:22. "If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”. Luke 11:13. "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you". John 15:7. Obviously, there are conditions. These marvelous promises assume that those who ask are abiding in His commandments, truly desiring His will, having His priorities, thinking His thoughts, and are asking in faith and in His name.

"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you!". John 15:7 (NKJ). The precious promise in this verse has been an inspiration to the faithful down through the centuries. It becomes even more amazing when attention is paid to the original Greek language in which it was written. Abiding implies a close personal fellowship with someone; in this case, the personal, loving Lord Jesus: “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love” (v. 9). Such an abiding on our part will be evidenced by obedience, love for Him and for the brethren, and joy (vv. 10-14). Our minds and hearts will be in total harmony with His, guided by such a walk and His words. “You will ask” does not carry the proper force in English. This is a command in the imperative mode in Greek—a challenge, if you will. He challenges us to “ask what you will” (literally “whatever you desire”) and see Him faithful. Desire speaks of something different from need; indeed, it speaks of an “inclination”. He is not afraid we will ask for selfish inclinations, for if we “abide” in Him, our desires are His desires, and we will naturally ask for those things that glorify Him: “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples” (v. 8). Notice the word “done,” which in Greek stems from the word meaning “to come into existence.” God will answer our unselfish prayers, even if He has to transcend natural law or even create something to do so. He even challenges us to “ask” without hesitation, as implied by the Greek construction. If we meet the condition of “abiding” in Him, as a branch “abides” in the vine (vv. 1-5), He will place in us the desire to bring forth much fruit (v. 5) to His glory and to our everlasting delight.

"Then Paul and Silas were thrown into jail, and the jailer was ordered to guard them carefully. When he heard this order, he put them far inside the jail and pinned their feet down between large blocks of wood. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing songs to God as the other prisoners listened". Acts 16:23-25. In this world, we live every day with trouble (Job 5:7). How should believers in Christ cope with this reality? In Paul’s missionary travels recorded in Acts 16, God directed Silas and him to Philippi, where they found themselves beaten, tortured, and left for dead in a dungeon. Yet, they reacted to this trouble by singing praises to God! What enabled them to respond this way? The answer—they filtered their dire situation through two awesome realities found in Psalm 100: “Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep he tends. Come into his city with songs of thanksgiving and into his courtyards with songs of praise. Thank him and praise his name. The Lord is good. His love is forever, and his loyalty goes on and on". Psalm 100:3-5. The full verse of Psalm 100:3 reads, “Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep he tends.” Paul lived life knowing that Yahweh was the potter and he was the clay, just an earthen vessel employed in the Lord’s service (2 Corinthians 4:7). Although Paul faced countless trials, he didn’t “fear” evil, for the Shepherd’s “rod and staff” comforted him (Psalm 23:4). Our Shepherd, like Paul’s, is a loving and caring Shepherd. (Psalm 78:13). Not only did Paul know that Yahweh is God, he also knew that “the LORD is good” (Psalm 100:5). God’s steadfast love motivates all He does. Both truths are preceded with the following injunctions to praise God: “Make a joyful noise” (v. 1), “serve the LORD with gladness” (v. 2), “come before his presence with singing” (v. 2), “enter into his gates with thanksgiving” (v. 4), and “be thankful unto him” (v. 4). Like with Paul and Silas in prison, praise and thanksgiving should characterize all believers who truly know that Yahweh is God and Yahweh is good. (Days of Praise)

In Apologetics-Outpost Europe
The details of the life of Jesus are based on 4 primary source-historical documents: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In our first class, I listed 3 fundamental questions when preparing for a trial: 1/ can the witnesses be trusted? 2/ has the testimony been changed? 3/ is there corroborating evidence? In this class, we're gonna answer the question: can the witnesses be trusted? So, how do we know the Gospel authors were telling the truth? How do we know they were recording history, not myths? Here is the first thing I want you to see. The Gospel accounts sound like written history. Some stories, they start like this, this is going to be familiar to you "a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away..". Now, is that fact or is that fiction? Well, it's Star Wars, it's fiction! How about this one: "Once upon a time, there lived in a certain village, a little country girl, the prettiest creature ever seen". Now, is that fact or fiction? Well, it's fiction. It's Little Red Riding Hood. All the stories though, they start like this: "Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word". “Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us". Luke 1:1-2. Now, does that sound like fact or fiction to you? Sounds like this is a factual account, not a fictional account. It's actually; this is how Luke starts his Gospel. You know, certain factors tip us off that that Luke means to be writing history. Listen carefully: “Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us". Luke 1:1-2. Luke, He starts by referring to what sounds like real historical events. These events, he said, are based on eyewitness testimony, that gives accurate information about the life of Jesus. He says he has carefully investigated everything from the beginning. He's writing the orderly account to a leader named "Theophilus". Why would he do that? So Theophilus would know with certainty the things he's been taught about the life of Jesus. Do you see the difference between Luke and Little Red Riding Hood? This writing has all the indications of what's known as ancient history. And it seeks to tell the true life story of Jesus of Nazareth. In chapter 3, Luke gives even more historical detail; he gives an exact year! He gives an exact ruler, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea; Luke names the exact governor and the location! “In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene". Luke 3:1. And Herod was tetrarch of Galilee and his brother Philip was tetrarch in the region of Ituraea. Luke identifies the exact tetrarchs and their locations. That's the way history is written! So, not only the Gospels sound like written history; the New Testament writers say it is written history. For example, let's look at Peter's writing: “For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty". 2 Peter 1:16. He is saying, he and the disciples didn't invent the accounts of Jesus' life, death and resurrection. He's saying that "we're telling the truth". He was there. He saw it with his own eyes. Let's look at John's writing; another primary source-historical document and notice the number of senses John appeals to here: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ". 1 John 1:1-3. John heard Jesus. John saw Jesus. John touched Jesus. John was concerned with the facts not with fairy tales. So, the New Testament writers say they are written history; but the Gospel accounts also have the feel of written history. First, they include details of eyewitness testimony, they include times of day, weather condition, local customs and other minutiae that otherwise wouldn't be there. Second, the Gospel authors; they include embarrassing details about themselves. The disciples, they often come across as petty, as "slow down to stand", arrogant and often time unfaithful. Think of James and John as they rejected in Samaria, they said "Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from Heaven to consume them?". And Jesus rebuked them. And then, the mother of James and John; this is in the Gospel of Matthew, she says "command that in your Kingdom (of Jesus), that these 2 sons of mine may sit at your right and one on your left". Well, thanks mom. You know, telling Jesus what to do!! How about Peter who denies Christ?! How about the women who were the first to report the risen Christ?! Why include these unflattering details if the Gospels were works of fiction? There was no motivation for the writers to lie, think about this with me. What is the basic rule about lying? Tell a lie that makes you look good or get you something. Now, I'm not telling you to lie, but don't lie and have get you beaten with rods, whipped or stoned, or crucified upside down or beheaded. That's not a good lie if you receive that from it. The earliest disciples signed their testimonies in blood. And fourthly, even critics of the New Testament believe that the Gospels are history. "You are asking with respect to the Gospels: do they actually describe what Jesus said and did? On this topic, there are some points on which Mike and I are certainly going to agree. We agree that the Gospel writers were first century authors who were writing according to the conventions and style of their day and that they had limitations that were imposed upon them, we agree on that. We agree that there is some material in the Gospels that is certainly historically reliable. There really was a Jesus. He was probably baptized by John the Baptist. He had 12 followers. He taught about the coming Kingdom of God. He told parables. He had a trip to Jerusalem. He was arrested and put on trial and executed. And in broad terms, I agree that the Gospels are giving us some reliable information. But, I don't think that the Gospels are accurate in many of the things that they say; that Jesus taught and did". Bart Ehrman, Atheist, Author, New Testament Scholar. So, our first question is: can the witnesses be trusted? And our answer is absolutely Yes. First, the Gospel accounts sound like written history. Second, the New Testament writers say that's written history. Third, the Gospel accounts have the feel of written history. And fourth, even historians who are critics, take the Gospels to be written history. But there's another question we need to ask about the evidence: what if the words in the New Testament aren't actually the words of these authors? What if the documents have been tempered with? What if the documents have been changed? Those are the issues we will answer in our next class. For more ressources, visit: (Stand to Reason) https://training.str.org/

Iranian forces are building a massive weapons base in the eastern Syrian province of Deir az-Zour, according to reports: While the U.S.-led International Coalition has begun the construction of a large military base on the eastern side of the Euphrates River, Syrian opposition website Ain al-Furat says this Iranian base will host the second largest concentration of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) troops in eastern Syria (west of the Euphrates River). The IRGC is reportedly constructing huge underground facilities to store weapons and munitions that arrive over the border from Iraq under the guise of agricultural produce or Shia pilgrims visiting sacred shrines. "And the voice said to the sixth angel who held the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great Euphrates River". Revelation 9:14.

"Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are his. We are his people, the sheep of his pasture". Psalm 100:3. A fix-it substance used today in most homes resides in a little blue can labeled WD-40. This liquid gold lubricates, preserves, and safeguards all kinds of stuff. But there’s a much more priceless spiritual liquid that all believers “in Christ” need to apply to protect their lives from this world’s evil influences. Psalm 100 teaches that the prerequisite to proper Christian worship is knowing the God we worship. “It is he that hath created us, and not we ourselves” (KJ version)). What are the implications of knowing Yahweh as our all-knowing Creator? Because He formed us in the womb (Psalm 139:15): "You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb". He knows our inner workings and what’s required for us to live glorifying lives. Peter unpacks this specifically: "For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God". 1 Peter 1:23. First, we need to be transformed as new creatures in Christ: "For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ". 2 Corinthians 5:21. Even after the new birth, believers are still prone to the rusting, degenerative effects of the Fall: "As the Scriptures say, 'people are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades'". 1 Peter 1:24. What is the spiritual antidote to these decaying elements? "But the word of the Lord remains forever". And that word is the Good News that was preached to yo". 1 Peter 1:25. God’s Word is the believer’s priceless spiritual lubricant, coupled with the ministry of the Holy Spirit: "So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment". 1 Peter 2:1-2. "Believer, are you being transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:1-2) and by God’s clearly written and communicated Word? This liquid gold is able to safeguard your fragile being". (Days of Praise)

Is Emmanuel Macron successfully building a parallel structure to not just NATO, but also the EU? He has stated that his country will not strike Russia even if Moscow uses tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine. A big statement coming from the only European country who has nuclear weapons of its own! He is not the biggest fan of NATO. For quite some time, Macron has been trying to weaken NATO's hold over the European continent. In 2018, he tried to form a military coalition, in his own words "I want to build a real security dialogue with Russia, which is a country I respect, a European country. But we must have Europe that can defend itself on its own without relying only on the US". In March this year, he renewed that call by saying "Europe must become more independent for its own defense and to ensure energy supplies"; the remarks were viewed as being both against Russia, as well as the United States. The Beast out of the Sea Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority. I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery—but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast. They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they also worshiped the beast. “Who is as great as the beast?” they exclaimed. “Who is able to fight against him?” Then the beast was allowed to speak great blasphemies against God. And he was given authority to do whatever he wanted for forty-two months. (Revelation 13:1-5).

"I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News". Galatians 1:6. There is only one true gospel (meaning “good news”) in Christianity, but there are many false gospels. Various cults have proposed such concepts as the social gospel, the prosperity gospel, the full gospel, and others, but it is dangerous to attach adjectives or other modifiers to the gospel unless these are specifically attached to it in the Scriptures. There are enough of these, however, to emphasize that the true gospel does have many facets. God’s “good news” is always about Christ—His person and work—but His work is from eternity to eternity, and He is both the mighty God and perfect man. Therefore, with Paul we can say: "For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile". Romans 1:16. The gospel is the “everlasting gospel”, focusing on Him as the one “that made heaven, and earth” (Revalation 14:6-7)). It is also the “gospel of the kingdom” (Matthew 4:23), focusing on Him as the coming “King of kings” (Revelation 17:14). It is the wonderful “gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24) and “the gospel of your salvation” (Ephesians 1:13). Thus, it also is the true “gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15), reconciling man to God. Because Christ is God, this “gospel of Jesus Christ” (Mark 1:1) is surely the one true “gospel of God” (Romans 1:1). This is the gospel that we have been commissioned by Christ to preach “to every creature” (Mark 16:15), so we need no other. And since it is, indeed, “the glorious gospel of the blessed God” (1 Timothy 1:11), we should never desire another. It meets every spiritual need for time and eternity. (Days of Praise)

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die'". John 11:25. The backdrop to this fifth “I am” declaration of Jesus in John’s gospel is the death of Lazarus four days before Christ‘s arrival with His disciples in Bethany. Martha, Lazarus’ sister, met Jesus and said: “If you had been here, my brother would not have died.” John 11:21. Jesus then gave her the powerful declaration in today’s text, followed by: “And whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”. John 11:26. Jesus’ declaration of being “the resurrection, and the life” went well beyond what He was going to do in raising Lazarus from the dead. He was proclaiming His divinity and power to raise any man from the dead and impart resurrection life. In John 5:21, we read: “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it”. While our mortal life ebbs away, the life Jesus gives to those who put their faith in Him never ends. John 5:24 says: “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life". The resurrection life of Jesus is not just for the afterlife but also provides hope and strength in the midst of a sin-cursed world. Paul declared that God: “Made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”. Ephesians 2:5-6. And: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life”. Romans 6:4.

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener". John 15:1 This seventh and last “I am” statement of Jesus in John’s gospel was made immediately prior to His earthly departure. Although He was physically leaving, Christ admonished His followers to continue abiding in Him as the true source of life. This foundational faith-based paradigm is affirmed in 1 Peter 1:8-9: “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls”. But this whole concept of abiding in Christ for life and sustenance is contrary to the world’s wisdom, which pushes the meme of self-actualization whereby the individual is the ultimate determining factor in all success. While hard work and diligence are important in life, if you are not connected to the true vine, Jesus Christ, it’s all for nothing. Christ elaborated: “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me”. John 15:4. Needless to say, the stark analogy is that a branch severed from the main supporting vine withers and dies. But Jesus expands on the analogy of the Father God being the husbandman, saying: “He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful” John 15:2. The purging, or pruning, process involves the removal of unproductive plant growth that would otherwise divert resources from the plant’s goal of bearing fruit. In this regard, Hebrews 12:11 says: “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it”.

The Sixth Trumpet Brings the Second Terror Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice speaking from the four horns of the gold altar that stands in the presence of God. And the voice said to the sixth angel who held the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great Euphrates River.” Then the four angels who had been prepared for this hour and day and month and year were turned loose to kill one-third of all the people on earth. I heard the size of their army, which was 200 million mounted troops. And in my vision, I saw the horses and the riders sitting on them. The riders wore armor that was fiery red and dark blue and yellow. The horses had heads like lions, and fire and smoke and burning sulfur billowed from their mouths. One-third of all the people on earth were killed by these three plagues—by the fire and smoke and burning sulfur that came from the mouths of the horses. Their power was in their mouths and in their tails. For their tails had heads like snakes, with the power to injure people. But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk! And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts. Revelation 9:13-21.

In End Time 1000
“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth". Revelation 11:3-4. Notice something very important, the Bible teaches us in many places that Satan will have two agents upon the earth, his political leader called the Antichrist and his spiritual leader called the false prophet. These will be Satan's two witnesses, who will be powerful, as they will control the politics, the media, the money, the religions of the world. But yet God, will have His two witnesses! At the Abomination of Desolation, while Satan reveals his two agents to the world, God will send His two witnesses to prophesy during the final 1260 days. Therefore, these final days will be a tremendous clash between the agents of Satan and the agents of God. The two witnesses of God, however, will not control the media, the money, politics, not even the religions of the world. All they will have is: GOD. The Bible tells us that these two anointed men of God will have power like no two prophets in the last 2000 years. This will be God's master plan for the end time. What will they preach? The message of the coming Kingdom of God. The Truth of the Gospel. They will preach it for 1260 days until it is finally established. They will preach with fervor and great conviction and power. Furthermore, they will oppose the Antichrist and the false prophet by addressing the eternal consequences to the common people, should they decide to follow these two deceivers. They will use the prophecies of the Bible to expose these individuals and show to the world their prophesied wicked ways. These two witnesses of God will ultimately have a worldwide Ministry and will explain to the masses the New World Order's agenda. As a matter of fact, these two prophets will know the Antichrist's plans and actions before he even knows them, because it is all recorded in the Word of God. They will frustrate the plans of this global dictator, who will become very irritated as a consequence. They will use every tool to preach to the world: internet, television, radio, etc. God will grant extraordinary power to these two men, according to the Bible: “And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire". Revelation 11:5-6. These plagues mentioned in this verse are most likely the 7 vials that will be poured out towards the end of the 1260 days. So, who are the two witnesses? There are lots of theories out there; but what we know for sure is that these two prophets are presently alive on the earth because the prophecies are now converging proving that we're very close to the time of the end. These two men will be incredibly successful in winning the souls for the Kingdom of God: “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands". Revelation 7:9. "Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb". Revelation 7:13-14. This greatest revival of all times, will undoutedbly happen during the Ministry of the two witnesses who will preach for 1260 days during the great tribulation. Now, the rest of the preachers around the world will continue their calling as well, but the two witnesses will be especially used of God to ignite this end time awakening and revival. How ill it end? "Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth". Revelation 11:9-10. The people of the world will be so evil and politically correct that they will hate these two men of God, because they will not fall in line with the world dictator and his New World Order. Once the battle of Armageddon is in progress, the Antichrist and his armies will be pushing Israel back down the Jordan Valley into the gates of Jerusalem, where half of the city will go into captivity, according to Zechariah 14:2. The Antichrist will most likely get to these men when the world armies take and capture half of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount. It is possible that the two witnesses will be preaching from the Temple Mount; therefore, once the world armies take over, they will receive the order to kill them. The world will rejoice to see these two prophets dead in the streets of Jerusalem; as they had been a thorn in the side for the world community and the New World Order system. But, it's not over until it's over: “Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them". Revelation 11:11-12. These two preachers will lay dead for 3 and 1/2 days; but people that know Scriptures will know exactly what is happening. The news and pictures will go around the world like wildfire. The media will begin to make fun of the situation and the Christians waiting for these two prophets to be raised from the dead. Nevertheless, at some point, these two men of God will in fact leave the ground and head up into the air. This event is called the rapture and it is the first resurrection: “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Revelation 20:4-5. The two witnesses will be caught up into the air at the same time as the rest of the Bride of Christ, according to the Bible. And when the people of the world see the catching away, they will become afraid and will give glory to God. Will you also be a part of this catching away, dear reader? Are you ready for the Kingdom of God? I certainly pray that you will be a part of the gathering of the elect. AMEN? From the book "1260 Days - The Ugly, The Good & The Glorious" - Tamara V Gozzi.

“Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else??” (Romans 8:32) For those of us who have trusted God for salvation, based on the finished work of Christ on the cross, God has already done for us the most difficult and costly thing He could ever do. He graciously sent His only Son to Earth and then to the cross and the grave in order to make forgiveness and eternal fellowship with us possible. We are now adopted children in His family, joint-heirs with His beloved Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16-17, 29, etc.), from whom we will never be separated (vv. 35-39), “whereby we cry, Abba, Father” (v. 15). Consider our state when all this was being done for us. It is easy to love a beautiful baby who needs someone to care for it; but we were not at all attractive. We were filthy sinners, born in sin and habitually choosing to offend God’s holy nature by succumbing to “the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath” (Ephesians 2:3). Furthermore, we were even “enemies” of the cross at the time “we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son” (Romans 5:10). Outside of His eyes of love and grace, we would have appeared more like a repulsive maggot than a beautiful baby. It stands to reason that He who has already done the most difficult, yea, infinitely difficult thing for us out of His great love will continue to manifest that love to us, especially now that we are of His family. As our text tells us, He will “freely give us all things.” With our best interests at heart, He will see that “all things work together for [our] good” (Romans 8:28). “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (Romans 8:31). (Days of Praise)

“Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him” .(Ephesians 4:18). It is a tragedy for a person to have blinded eyes but infinitely worse to have a blinded heart. No one ever willfully chooses to be sightless, but spiritual blindness is a product of the human will. After Christ had given sight to the man born blind, the Pharisees still refused to believe, so Jesus said to them: “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind....If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth” (John 9:39, 41). Like these ancient intellectuals, it often seems that modern intellectuals are incurably blind. They profess to teach science and philosophy of the highest complexity, but their understanding is darkened, and their hearts are blinded when it comes to the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. As Paul says: “If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4). Even very religious people, people who believe in God as Creator, may blind themselves when confronted with the truth that the Creator must also become their Savior. “But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand” (2 Corinthians 3:14-15). Nevertheless, Christ came as “the light,” and when anyone will simply in faith: “but whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away” (2 Corinthians 3:16), and the gospel will: “shine unto them” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

In End Time 1000
The Master Plan of the Dragon. You probably should know that the master plan of the dragon was launched here in America between 1913 and 1921. First of all, who is the dragon? Revelation 12:9 tells us in no uncertain terms, listen: “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him". So, it's obvious, the dragon is the devil or Satan. So, we are really talking today about Satan's master plan. Now, if we know our enemy's master plan, then we're able to counteract him. In this lesson today, we're going to learn the master plan of Satan himself. Let's go to Revelation 13:8: "All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world". Did you notice it? There it is: all will worship him. That's his plan. Revelation 13:15 says it again: "He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed". The goal of Satan's Master Plan is to force every person on earth to worship him through the Antichrist. Remember when Satan tried to get Jesus to worship him, he said "if you'll fall down and worship me, I'll give you all the kingdoms of this world". He actually offered Jesus the position of Antichrist. Fortunately, Jesus said "why should I want to be the Antichrist when I can be the Real Christ?!". Nevertheless, "all will worship him except those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life". And that's the reason it's so important for all of us to make sure, our name is written in the Lamb's book of life. Now, let's look at the master plan revealed. It's in Revelation 13, the entire thirteen chapter of Revelation is devoted to Satan's plan for this world here in these end times. Revelation 13:1-8 talks about the One-World Government. Verse 11 to 15 addresses the One-World Religion. And then finally verses 16 to 18, talks about the One-World Economy. Now, here is the deception, that has been perpetrated through our colleges, in our political circles. Here is the belief: war is caused by conflicts among nations, by religious conflicts and economic conflicts. So, the theory is: if we had a one-world government, a one-world belief system or one-world religion and a one world economy, we would eliminate the root causes for conflicts and we would have peace and security upon the earth. Let's look a little closer at the 13th chapter of Revelation, verses 1 to 8 is devoted to the One-World Government and the leader of that one-world government, the Antichrist. Verse 7 says this: "It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation". Revelation 13:7. In these first 8 verses, a beast is described, a beast in Bible prophecy always represents a nation or a kingdom along with the ruler of that nation or kingdom. Power was given unto the Antichrist over all kindreds, all tongues and nations. This is a picture of the end time one-world government prophesied repeatedly throughout the Scriptures. Verse 11 to 15 talk about the One-World Religion, watch close verse 11: "Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon". Revelation 13:11. Now, normally when we think of the lamb in the Bible, what comes to our mind? Of course, Jesus-Christ. Because He's the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. This is a depiction of a religious leader who will look like the lamb "Jesus-Christ", but the passage says "but he will speak like the devil". He will influence the world by deception. He's going to promote the Antichrist and His One-World Government. This is the personage the Bible calls: the false prophet. So, we have the Antichrist in verses 1-8 and the false prophet in verses 11-15. Now, let's look at the means of enforcement, the One-World Economy. Verses 16-17: "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name". Revelation 13:16-17. So, control of the human race will be by economic sanctions. We already see this happening right now on a national scale. Any nation that does not comply with the resolution or the edict of the United Nations is placed under economic sanctions. We've had recently Iran, Korea, many other nations have come under the constraint of economic sanctions. Well, that's exactly what's going to happen during the great tribulation, only it's going to be done individually during the great tribulation. Now, Satan's master plan was launched in America between 1913 and 1921. Three institutions were begun during this time period. In 1913, the Federal Reserve Bank was established. This gave control of the economy. In 1916, the Brookings Institute was founded. The Brookings Institute is a liberal think tank and it was designed to control the thinking of the nation or the belief system of the nation. And then, in 1921 another organization was formed, called "The Council on Foreign Relations". The Council on Foreign Relations main goal is to shape the foreign policy of the government, plus to produce rulers that will continually promote the vision of One-World Government. This is the incubator for the politicians that will implement the economic system and the One-World governmental system, and the religious system. It maybe interesting to you to note that one man participated in the formation of all 3 institutions. In this 8-year period, one man! Who are we speaking of? Mr. Paul Warburg. He was member of the M.M. Warburg and Co. Banking family; one of the most powerful banking firms in Europe. In 1895, Warburg married Nina J Loeb, daughter of Solomon Loeb, the founder of Kuhn Loeb and Company, very powerful banking firm in New York. This formed an alliance between Warburg and Co. in Germany and Kuhn Loeb & Co. in the US. In 1902, Warburg moved to the United States and became a partner in Kuhn Loeb & Co, he also remained a partner in the Warburg family firm in Hamburg Germany. So, now he has one foot in Europe, one foot in America. You see, our forefathers came to America to get away from the power of the central banking system of Europe; now then, it's the goal of Paul Warburg to gain control of the banking in America. Now, because of his outstanding knowledge of banking, Warburg quickly became very influential in banking circles in the United States. Upon arriving in America, he began to write papers promoting the establishment of a central banking system which many people in America never wanted to take power here. Soon, Warburg aquired a powerful ally, remember this name: Senator Nelson W Aldrich of Rhode Island. He was the zar of the Republican party and the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Senator Aldrich's daughter "Aby", married John D. Rockefeller. Their son was named Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, who became vice-president of the United States. All this came together exactly as it was planned. Now, let me take you to a secret meeting which was held on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia on November of 1910. During this time, under the guise of a duck hunt, Senator Aldrich, Paul Warburg and 4 other experts sneaked off to discuss bank reform at a secret hide-away on Jekyll Island, off the Georgian coast. Those in attendance included: Henry Davison of the Morgan Bank which became JP Morgan which today is Chase Bank; Frank Vanderlip of National City Bank; Benjamin Strong, vice-president of bankers Trust Company and A.P. Andrew, former secretary of the National Monetary Commission and, at that time became the assistant secretary of the treasury. The real purpose of this historic "duck hunt", they actually carried gun cases with them that were empty, because they didn't want anyone know that the major bankers of the world were meeting to formulate a secret plan. The major goal was to formulate this plan for US Banking and currency reform that Senator Aldrich could then present to Congress. During this secret meeting in 1910, the general outline for the Federal Reserve Act was determined. Paul Warburg from Germany, not even yet an American citizen by the way, was the principal architect of the Federal Reserve Act. What was the purpose of the Federal Reserve Act? The goal was to place control of America's money in the hands of private bankers. If this Act were passed, it was to mean the Federal Reserve board would set interest rates and determine the amount of money in circulation. There was one man who said "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws". That was Mayer Amschel Rothschild". Remember that "give me control of a nation's money, I don't care who makes the laws; I'll control the nation". Now, listen to this quote from the Jekyll Island meeting: "If it were to be exposed publicly that our particular group (he's talking about elite bankers) had gotten together and written a banking bill, that bill would have no chance whatever of passage by Congress". That was Mr.Frank A. Vanderlip, president of national City Bank of New York. So, he said "if they knew who wrote this bill, no chance of passage". But, guess what they did?! They publicized this bill as a bill to save America from the power of the bankers. But guess what?! It was written by the most powerful bankers in America. That's the source of the Federal Reserve. So, the Federal Reserve then became law on December 23rd 1913, two days before Christmas. Many of the lawmakers had gone home for the holidays, but they knew what they were doing; and they slipped it through. I must remind you, that the Federal Reserve Agency is NOT a federal agency! Even though it's got the name "federal" in it; it's not more federal than Federal Express. But the Federal Reserve Agency, its stock is owned by private stockholders and the passage of this law gave private banking interest control of the US economy. So, does the government now determine the interest rate? No. Does the government determine the amount of money in circulation? No. The Federal Reserve has that power now. I mean, you're aware of it, they meet once a quarter and everybody sits on the edge of their seat, everybody is at the computer ready to buy or sell on the stock market, because if they raise the interest rate, that means the economy slows down. If they lower the interest rate, the economy will probably speed up. If they increase the money supply, then that means there's gonna be more money to loan and to invest in business. If they constrict the money supply, the opposite happens. A few years ago, I was interviewing Mr. Ron Paul, who was at that time in the House of Representatives. In this interview, by the way Congressman Paul served at the time on the House Financial Services Committee and was chairman of the sub-committee on domestic and monetary policy. Remember, he was chairman of domestic and monetary policy in the US. Now, right before this interview, I had read in the paper, a little tiny notice: The Federal Reserve would no longer report on the money supply! It had been the custom of the Federal Reserve every year, once a year, to say ok, this is the number of dollars in circulation and people watched that; if the dollar supply grew, they knew that the money was gonna be more available. If they shrunk they knew that everything was shrinking and tightening down. And when I saw the article, that the Federal Reserve Act had made the arbitrary decision to no loner report on the money supply; immediately, I thought "oh my goodness, they're getting ready to print money like there's no tomorrow". That means, they don't want us to know how much is in circulation because then, inflation would become rampant, and they won't be able to control it. So, when I went to this interview, it was actually on my radio program, I said to Congressman Paul "do you know what the money supply of the United States is today?". The chairman of the Committee on Finance in our government said "No". I said Congressman Paul "can you find out?". He said "No". Now, I said "you're the chairman of the Finance Committee of the US government where all financial bills are supposed to start from the House of Representatives, and you don't even know how much money is in circulation, and you cannot find out?". He said "No". Well, Paul Warburg who was the father of the Federal Reserve, he wasn't an American citizen when he wrote the Act in 1910, but in 1911 he applied for citizenship, it was granted. Now remember, he moved to the US in 1902, became a partner in Kuhn Loeb &Company, he immediately began promoting a central bank for the US; then he designed the Federal Reserve system in November 1910; he became a US citizen in 1911; and then he became a member of the First Federal Reserve Board appointed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1913. Ok. Now, this master plan was imported from Europe. Listen, in the words of Paul Warburg himself, immediately acquainted with European Central Banks, especially the German Reichsbank, Warburg didn't claim to originate new banking principles, so much as importing European practices. So, now America gets the same banking system as Europe now has. Ok, let's look at what the Brookings Institute is all about. It was founded in 1916, 3 years after the Federal Reserve Act was passed. It's a think tank designed to conduct research and formulate policies that could be enacted by the federal government. For example a Brookings Institute expert helped refine the blue print for president Franklin D. Roosevelt's dream of the United Nations, which was designed to be a one-world government. Paul Warburg became a Trustee of the Brookings Institute, serving until his death. Now, follow this, Paul Warburg the father of the Federal Reserve on the first Federal Reserve Board, now he's on the board of the Brookings Institute, but that's not the end of the story. Let's look now at the Council on Foreign Relations, founded in 1921. Now, this Council is a private club; I know it sounds like a governmental agency, but it's not. It's a private club and membership is by invitation only. The purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is to influence America's foreign policy and to prepare its members for key positions in the government. Some people even call it "the invisible government". Paul Warburg became a director of the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921, remaining on the Board until his death. Ok, let's review for a moment; so we've got Mr. Paul Warburg, father of the Federal Reserve Act; now he's a founding member of the Brookings Institute; now he's on the Board of the Council on Foreign Relations. These 3 powerful organizations are alive and well and very powerful in America to this very day. Well, inevitably as all of us do, Paul Warburg passed away. So, are we done with this man and his legacy. Not at all. Now, meet his son James Paul Warburg. James Paul Warburg stood before a Senate Committee and he said: "we shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest". February 17, 1950. We're gonna have it, whether you want to have it or not! And this is what he was testifying before the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on February 17th of 1950. You can go to the congressional record and read it for yourself. Mr.James Paul Warburg went on to endorse world government. He said "I think the essential thing we should undertake is that we declare our willingness to participate in some sort of world organization capable of enacting, administering, interpreting and enforcing, watch this: world law. Whether you call it a federation, a government or a world order. Remember, this was James Paul Warburg testifying before the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, February 7th 1950. Also, James Warburg was an adviser to president Franklin D. Roosevelt during the time he was devising the United Nations. The United Nations was designed to be a one-world government. Furthermore, James Warburg was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Let's move ahead in time now to the present. What is the Federal Reserve today? They meet several quarters to raise interest rates or to lower them; to adjust the financial market and they immediately respond, as though the Federal Reserve has a thermostat on the wall. If they want the economy to speed up, they feed the money supply, they lower the interest rates, if they want it to slow down, they shrink the money supply, they raise the interest rates. This is not a Governmental Agency. This is a private corporation with private stockholders! And it never looses money because its payments are guaranteed by the tax base of the United States of America. Remember, back in 2008 when we came to this huge economic crisis, in the closing days of the George W. Bush presidency, and everybody said "we'd better bail out the banks, they're too big to fail, they'll bring the whole world down. Well, we did. We bailed out to incredible billions and billions of dollars. And they brought Mr. Bernanke before the Senate to question him about this debacle. And they said to him "where did the bailout money go?". He looked at our government and said "I can't tell you that". Wait a minute, we're the Senate, we're the government, and you're telling us you can't tell us what you did with US tax payer money?!". We later found out that millions even went to foreign banks, all the losses were shifted to the American tax payer. Banks had made horrible investments, many of them were losing money like crazy, but guess what; we didn't want them to loose any money because the banks control the politicians who make the laws. Consequently, during this time where supposedly the banks were going down the tubes, I took the time to check the financial reports at the end of the year. And they recorded, some of them, record profits. Furthermore, during this time when the US tax payer was subsiding money into these big banks, huge bonuses continued to be paid to these bank executives that had caused the big problem. Obviously, a rigged system! Furthermore, when it came time to get a new treasury, the secretary of the treasury, they reached into the federal reserve Mr. Timothy Geithner became the head of the Treasury; he formerly was head of the federal reserve Bank of New York. So, guess what?! He's head of the most powerful reserve bank in the federal reserve. He caused the problem; so, what do we do?! We bring him into the Treasury as secretary of the treasury, the person who caused the unprecedented problem, is given the job of fixing it. You talk about, putting the fox in charge of the hen house. This was a classic example. Listen to this statement: "who controls the food supply controls the people. Who controls energy can control whole continents. Who controls the money controls the world". You'll never guess who made this classic statement, you know him: doctor Henry Kissinger; who by the way, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. So, what is the Brookings Institute, today? I found an article in Time Magazine on July 20th of 1992, called "Birth of the global nation". It was written by a man by the name of Strobe Talbott. He made a statement in this article: "In the 21st century, national sovereignty as we have known it will cease to exist. We will all answer to a single global authority". That was so interesting. I bought the magazine. I thought "who is this guy who says national sovereignty is gonna be gone. We're going to go into a world government. We'll all answer to a single global authority". Well, I began to investigate, within one year, Strobe Talbott was brought to the White House by president Clinton and he served the next 7 years as deputy secretary of State of the United States. I also found out that he and Bill Clinton were roommates while they were in college together in England. Then, when president Clinton's term was over, they had to have new jobs of course because all the administration left office. So, Strobe Talbott is out of a job. He lands a very lucrative job: president of the Brookings Institute. Now, remember, he said in the 21st century, national sovereignty as we've known it, will cease to exist, we'll answer to a single global authority. Now, he's president of the Brookings Institute which was founded, remember back in 1916 by Paul Warburg, now the torch is passed to none other than Strobe Talbott. And he is going there to promote his concept of one-world government, which was the mission of the Brookings Institute from the very beginning. Shortly after he became president of the Brookings Institute; this Institute was joined by a lady by the name of Susan Rice. She became senior fellow for foreign affairs, at the Brookings Institute. It wasn't long, however, until a young man by the name of Barack Obama decided to run for president of the United States of America. He calls down to the Brookings Institute and said "I need an expert in foreign affairs to guide my political campaign". Talbott said "we've got just the person for you". Susan Rice. So, she became the foreign policy adviser to candidate Obama. They win the election; now, we need someone to go to the only organization on the earth designed to be a one-world government, the United Nations. Who else? Susan Rice, became our ambassador to the United Nations. So, now she's going to the headquarters of world government to preach the message of Strobe Talbott in the 21st century; national sovereignty as we've known it will cease to exist, we'll all answer to a single global authority. After leaving as ambassador to the UN, she moved to the White House to be national security advisor to president Barack Obama. It was about this time, when all the bailout was taking place, at the end of 2008, actually it was December the 8th of 2008, I was boarding a plane and they had a lot of newspapers out there, it was going to be a fairly long flight; and so I was, they were offering newspapers for the passengers so we'd have something to read on this flight. And one of the newspapers was the Financial Times and the headline read "And now for a World Government". I mean, it captivated my attention. I picked up the paper, carried it to my seat and I began to read. Now, remember, this was just after Barack Obama was elected, he was not yet in power. But we were in the transition period between the leaving of George W. Bush and the ascension of Barack Obama to power. This article was written by Gideon Rockman. Now remember, the Financial Times is the number one economic paper in the world. It's published everyday and it is the most read by the most influential people on earth that control the economy of the world. As I read the article, remember the article is "And now for a World Government"; a couple of quotes from the article: "A taste of the ideas doing the rounds in Obama circles is offered by a recent report from the Managing Global Insecurity project, whose small US advisory group includes John Podesta, the man heading Mr. Obama's transition team and Strobe Talbott, the president of the Brookings Institution, from which Ms. Rice has just emerged". And from the article "And now for a World Government", it says "The MGI report argues for the creation of a UN high commissioner for counter-terrorist activity, a legally binding climate-change agreement negotiated under the auspices of the UN and the creation of a 50,000-strong UN peacekeeping force. Once countries had pledged troops to this reserve army, the UN would have first call upon them". Not their own nation! So, what are they promoting? They need a UN sponsor climate-change agreement. During the Barack Obama's administration, they got that, even though more recently it has at least temporarily been reversed by the Trump administration. The World Government army they wanted, now NATO has become that World Government army. Everything they wanted has now clicked together. Ok, so we now have a UN high-commissioner on human rights and counter-terrorism, the whole world is fighting against terrorism, that's the whole concept behind "we're going to eliminate all descent". Number two, NATO has become the global army, and then the effort for a binding climatechange agreement. Well, it did succeed, now it's failed. President Trump is receiving all kinds of grief because he has moved to suspend the US participation in the climate-change agreement, but most of the world says "we're going on with or without the United States of America". More recently, Strobe Talbott wrote another book called: The Great Experiment". And in the Great Experiment, it is a blatant endorsement of One-World Government. I have the book, I've read it through carefully. Strobe Talbott comes out of the closet and simply says "The nation-state structure of our world no longer works; we need a One-World Government". Now remember, he's the president of the Brookings Institute. So, what is the Council on Foreign Relations today? The Council on Foreign Relations was kept secret for many years. Nobody even knew about it. They had meetings for 40-50 years and everything was hushed up and the established press cooperated with them by not writing any articles about them. However, after a while, some of the people became aware, some very industrious investigated journalists began to dig when they noticed these meetings that were held yearly; "what's going on here?". Now, so you'll really understand the Council on Foreign Relations; approximately 50% of all Cabinet Members in the last 50 years have come from the CFR whether the administration was Democrat or Republican. You know, for a long time I suspected that I was voting for Tweedledee or Tweedledum. I remember voting for Richard Nixon because he was supposedly against Socialism. But he passed more social legislation than any president in the history of the world. And then I voted for Georges W. Bush because he seemed to be for freedom, and yet he signed the Real ID Act foisting a national ID on the American people. So, it didn't matter whether the Republicans were in power or the Democrats were in power; the Cabinet was always supplied at least 50% of the members by the Council on Foreign Relations, who favored to move us steadily toward a New World Order, a World Government, Strobe Talbott's One World Government, where national sovereignty cease to exist; we all answer to a single global authority. Remember, what we're talking about. We're talking about: The Master Plan of the Dragon. Admiral Chester Ward was invited to be a member of the CFR. Now, the CFR's goal is formation of an increasingly stronger world government. Admiral Chester Ward, former judge advocate of the US Navy was a CFR member for 16 years before resigning in disgust. He stated "The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is promoting the disarmament of US sovereignty and national independence, and submergence into an allpowerful one-world government". Do you get the picture? Federal Reserve, Brookings Institute, Council on Foreign Relations; it's all coming together. What does this tell us? The Dragon's Master Plan is being enacted right now! Can we prove that? Is there really a world government being implemented right before our eyes, and we don't even realize it? Have you heard the term "globalization"?. What does that mean? It means to globalize the world, to move away from the national state to a system of global governance. Have you heard the term "International Community"? "World Community", "Global Governance", "New World Order". What do all these terms mean? We didn't use to hear them before the fall of the Berlin Wall. All of a sudden, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, as we moved into what they called the New World Order, we're hearing all these terms because they know where they're trying to lead you and they know where they're trying to lead me. Do you remember when president Obama wanted to attack Libya? He went straight to the United Nations security council and they passed a resolution against Muammar Gaddafi; he never bothered to submit that to the US Congress, that's where the power to declare war is supposed to reside. The next day after the UN resolution was passed, NATO's planes mostly made up of the United States, were dropping bombs on Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, because president Obama was quickly moving us toward a system, a world government bypassing Congress. I want to talk to you for a moment about the Responsibility to Protect. The UN charter, when it was originally written, only allowed for the UN to intervene between nations. They could not meddle in the domestic affairs of nations. However, I was a journalist at the 2005 meeting called: The World Summit, at the United Nations. I received press credentials to be there. As I was watching these proceedings; there were 153 heads of state out of 200, present in the UN building in New York. As I was watching the proceedings, I'm trying to figure out "what are they trying to do?". Finally, Kofi Annan who was at that time secretary general of the UN, he came to the press room where Associated Press was there, Reuters was there, all the big news services were there, and Endtime Magazine was there. And I sat and listened as Kofi Annan briefed the press on what the result of that particular meeting was going to be, he said "we've not got a lot of things you wanted us to get", but he said "we've got one thing I think you're gonna be very happy with, the nations have voted for our outcome statement for this meeting, we've agreed on a new policy 'The Responsibility to Protect'" What did it say? It said that if a government is violating the human rights of its people that the United Nations, the world community, not only has a right to intervene, but a responsibility to protect the people against the government. This gave a license to the UN to go and overthrow governments, like we did with Muammar Gaddafi. A statement was issued at that time "Sovereignty is no longer a right, but a privilege that can be revoked by the world community". Now, let's bring the words of a former president; president George H.W. Bush. Listen to what he has got to say about the New World Order: "We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for future generations a New World Order. A world where the rule of law, not the law of the jungle, governs the conduct of nations. When we're successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this New World Order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peace keeping rule to fulfill the promise envisioned by the UN's founders. So, as you see, president George H.W. Bush avidly endorsed the New World Order, and the United Nations eventually being the world government that it was originally envisioned to be. In case you need to know, Mr. David Rockefeller, for many years served as president of the Council on Foreign Relations. I'm quoting now from his memoirs that he wrote and was published in 2002 on page 405: "For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions". He went on to say "Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure-one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty and I am proud of it". Here is another statement by David Rockefeller; this one was in 1994 "This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long. We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order". Look at that "All we need is the right crisis and the nations will accept the World Order". Well, president Obama was voted in in 2008, before taking office, Henry Kissinger was asked about the potential for his presidency. I have a video for you right now. I want you to listen carefully what Henry Kissinger had to say about Barack Obama leading the world into a New World Order. Listen: "He (Obama) can give new impetus to American foreign policy; partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. I think his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a New World Order can be created. It's a great opportunity. It isn't such a crisis". Now, what Mr. Kissinger was saying is all of the economic of evil that was going on right then, the big bailouts and everything that president Barack Obama was inheriting, he said it's really not such a crisis, it's really an opportunity. Let's go a step further now. What are the people who are running the world truly believing? Now, we talked about a world government; we're far advanced down that road right now. But what about a world belief-system? Mikhail Gorbachev was a major player around the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the tearing down of the iron curtain, and he wrote in his book in 1987, his book "Perestroika", a very famous book. He was outlining what needed to happen for peace on earth and global security. He said "We must extirpate all genocide, apartheid and religious exclusiveness..". Remember this terminology "we must replace religious exclusiveness with religious inclusiveness". What does that mean? That means if you're religiously exclusive, if you say that your religion is the only way to salvation, you're a threat to peace on earth. And we must re-educate people to include all religions. Your religion is as good as my religion; Muslim, Jew, Christian, Buddhist, it doesn't make any difference. This is called: Interfaithism. The united religions initiative held a parliament of the world's religions where they promoted a unification of all the faiths of the world. Mr. Tony Blair, after he left office as the prime minister of Great Britain, he founded the Tony Blair foundation and he partnered with Yale University to actually produce a course you can be degreed in, called: Faith and Globalization. Now, Tony Blair's contention was that globalization is pushing the world together so rapidly that it's pushing the religions together and that's producing religious conflicts, because now, we're mixing Muslims with Christians, with Jews, with all these different belief-systems. And therefore, he felt like there had to be understanding fostered so that all religions could exist together and could acknowledge the validity to one another together. He and Bill Clinton actually produced a program called: Face to Faith. Their plan was to put a computer on the desk of every student in the world. And to hook that computer up, if they're Christians, to hook them up with a Muslim; if they're Muslims, to hook them up with a Jew. And they would then discuss, not their difference, but what they agree together on. And in so doing, they want to foster the unity of the belief-systems of the world. Now, here is the theory, the theory is that we all worship the same God, anyway. Muslims, Jews, Christians, I mean after all, Muslims call him Allah, Jews call him Jehovah, Christians call him Jesus. But then, they say "there's really only one God". Now, if you doubt that this is the belief that has been promoted at the very highest levels; what's the goal? One-World Religion; One-World Government; One-World Economy. If you doubt that this is taking place right now, I'd like for you to view a video clip by president George W. Bush, he's been asked about this very thing. Listen to it: -Do we all worship the same God, Christian and Muslim? -I think we do. We've different routes of getting to the Almighty. -Do Christians and non-Christians and Muslims go to Heaven in your mind? -Yes they do. We've different routes of getting there. Well, that's what president George W. Bush said, but is it true? Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Christians worship Jesus as God. Muslims violently dispute that Jesus was God; they say "no way was He God!". So, it's obvious, we don't worship the same God. Nevertheless, that is the myth that has been perpetrated to try to bring about One-World Government, One-World Religion and OneWorld Economy. Now, not only George W. Bush embraced this, but most of the leaders of the world do right now. For example, president Obama, he had 3 inaugural services after his first election. In the first inaugural service, he had prayers by Muslims and Jews. In the second inaugural service, he had prayer offered by an openly homosexual Episcopalian Bishop Gene Robinson. In his third ecumenical and inaugural service, he had Rick Warren, a leading evangelical to pray. He was sending a very clear message: Muslims, Jews, Christians, homosexuals, doesn't matter. If you try to make a difference, you're guilty of racism anyway. That's the whole message, because the Master Plan says "we must have One-World Government, One-World Religion and One-World Economy. Dictators have always attempted to control the beliefs of their subjects. Do you remember in the Old Testament, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon?! He brought all these subjects together, he built this huge image of gold high into Heavens. And he said "everybody in my realm must bow down and worship it, I will not tolerate religious dissent". You know the story; the 3 Hebrew children were here and they couldn't bow down to the image, it was against the commandments of God, but nevertheless, that was the goal of the dictator of Babylon and that's gonna be the goal of the dictator of the end time, the man called: the Antichrist. The prophecy of Revelation 13; oh by the way, has it struck you yet that it's really strange that the one chapter of the entire Bible is devoted totally to the plan of Satan, should be chapter number 13?! Revelation 13 clearly states that people will be forced to embrace a global belief-system. Revelation 13:15: “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed". They're gonna mean business. You're gonna worship the one-world government and the leader of that one-world government, you're gonna pledge allegiance; I don't know what form of worship it will take, probably a form of a pledge of allegiance. But you're gonna do that, or else you're gonna be put off limits economically, and you may even be killed, some people will be killed. There was a statement by Mr. Hans Kung, he said: "if there's no peace among the religions, there will be no peace among the nations". Listen to the quote: "There will be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions. There will be no peace among the religions without dialogue among the religions". That statement was formulated by doctor Hans Kung, a professor of an ecumenical theology and president of the foundation for a global ethic, or a global belief system. I would remind all of us today though, before we get too brainwashed with all of this propaganda. God hates false religion! Remember, the tower of Babel?! That was the first global religions system. They said we'll build a tower into the Heavens, if there's another flood, we just go up the tower, we don't have to depend on God to tell us to build an ark. However, God was against that man-made religion system and he blocked it. In the New Testament, God spends 2 chapters of the book of Revelation, on the judgment of the false religion of the end time. Mystery Babylon, an inheritor of the original tower of Babel, will be the last man-made religion system. Revelation 17 and 18 are devoted to the judgment that God will soon pour out on this oneworld religious system, and it will be the one-world religious system of the false prophet, mentioned in Revelation 13. So, is there a world economy being formed right now? We now have a World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization. We have now a global economy and then in April 2009, the Financial Stability Board was created. Let me just give you the details. The April 2009 London Summit decided to establish the financial stability board. You probably never heard of it. But I promise you, it;s affecting you. Its purpose was to oversee all financial institutions of the world. Secretary of the US at the time, treasurer Tim Geithner, has described it as in effect a fourth pillar of the architecture of global economic governance. Stop right there! Global economic governance. Now, you have the 4th pillar. The financial stability board has been assigned a number of important tasks working alongside the IMF, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization. That's the other three. Now, they have this fourth, which oversees all the financial institutions of the world and determines what criteria they must meet, what paperwork they must fill out and when the auditors come in for the financial stability board, they'd better have their house in order or they could be shut down. Now, economic control, here we come with the enforcement of the Master Plan. If you have a government, if you have a one-world religion, and you're not able to enforce it, what good is it, it'll not stand. But, there's an enforcement plan, that's been put in place right now. This enforcement plan is going to be economic control. The Bible tells us that they will replace national boarders with electronic surveillance. There will be a national ID. Now, the key to a surveillance society is a national ID. If they can track you and control you, that's not freedom. Control and freedom are opposite terms. America for 200 years has steadfastly resisted a national ID, even though some people have desperately wanted it. We fought against it. Desperately, until the year 2005; in 2005, they passed an Act called the Real ID Act signed by president George W. Bush on May 11th 2005. It was passed illegitimately. It was placed on the bottom of a bill, there was a thousand pages, it was a funding bill for troops in Iraq that was a "must passed bill"; so, they slipped this on the bottom. Everybody knew it wouldn't pass. But it was voted for 100 to 0. What does that mean? Well, that simply means that everyone of us will have a national ID very soon, most of us already have it. Everybody will be brought into the net by 2020. You will not get on an airplane in America without a driver's license that meets all the federal specifications and the final date for compliance will be 2020. Most of us, already have been forced into compliance right now. Now, why is this going to be so deadly? Because the national ID will be ultimately required to hold a job. What a good way to eliminate all this illegal immigration.. If you have to have this national ID card in order to hold a job, if you present your card, then they run the computer, 30 seconds later, "sorry you're not in the national database". Then you're not going to be able to hold a job. You;re gonna have to have a national ID to drive a car, to board an airplane, to open a bank account, to hold a job. Now, with no job, how much buying and selling will you do? The prophecy says "everybody will have to have this mark or this number, without which they'll be unable to buy or sell". Now, it's going to be really easy once all the nations of the world have a national ID, and most of them already do now, to quickly move into a global ID, it's just a matter of an extra digit or 2 on the end of the national ID number. The global ID is the key to the World Government. That's the central part of Satan's master plan. Listen to this verse: “And that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name". Once a global ID is fully implemented, every person can be tracked 24/7. National boarders will become irrelevant. You wonder why president Obama and Hillary Clinton did not want to enforce our national boarders?! It's because they were moving toward this goal where national boarders were irrelevant. Anybody can live anywhere. As long as everyone has a national ID, it's gonna be very simple. That was the purpose behind all of the chaos. But what's the real purpose? The purpose of the global ID is control! Once you're in a database, they only have to do, in that one field that says "has pledged allegiance to the world government or to the leader of the world government". If that field is not checked, then all of a sudden, the computer will flash the signal "authorization denied"; and you won't be able to hold a job. So, it's going to be a system of control, any place the Antichrist is in power, he will implement this system. And I remind you again, control and freedom are opposite terms. When I looked at all this, I thought "Lord, this huge scheme is so vast and so intricate, who is the brilliant mastermind behind all of this?". I thought it was too complex to be empowered by a mere man. So, who is the mastermind? I found the answer in the Bible. In Revelation 13:1-2, that's where the prophecy of the end time world government of the Antichrist is given, listen to what it says: "Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority". So, who is the dragon once again?! Remember, we went to it, Revelation 12:9. The dragon is that old serpent, the devil and Satan! So, Satan is the mastermind behind this move toward world government, toward one-world religion, toward one-world economy. Satan is behind the whole thing. For many years, Mr. Walter Cronkite was the news voice of America. Everybody tuned in every day to see what was going on in the world. After retiring from his news job, he began to work toward world government. The world federalists organization thought so highly of what he had done that they gave him the Norman Causins award in the year 2000. Norman Causins was the founder of the world federalists and he worked tirelessly toward one-world government. When they presented this award to Walter Cronkite in the year 2000,he made an acceptance speech for this award. I'd like for you to listen to his acceptance remarks: "First, we Americans are going to have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That's going to be to many a bitter pill. It will take a lot of courage, a lot of faith, a lot of persuasion to them to come along with us on this necessity. Today we must develop federal structures on a global level, to deal with world problems, we need a system of enforceable world law, a democratic federal world government. Pat Robertson has written in a book a few years ago, that we should have a world government, but only when the Messiah arrives. He wrote literally, 'any attempt to achieve world order before that time, must be the work of the devil'. Well, join me, I'm glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan". Well, shocking isn't it?! If world government is of Satan, I'm ready to sit at the right hand of Satan. Mr. Cronkite said it, you heard it with your own ears. So, one more time, Master Plan of the Dragon, Master Plan of Satan; what is it? One-World Government, One-World Religion, One-World Economy. Why does the devil want all of that? One reason: he fully intends for every person on earth, you, me, all of us, he intends for everyone of us to worship him instead of worshiping God. Now you know, that's the Master Plan of the Dragon.
