COVID-19 HAS BEEN WEAPONIZED TO DEMORALIZE AND DESTROY THE GLOBAL POPULATION AS THE ELITES ARE NOW BRINGING IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER

Bill Gates had it exactly correct when he predicted that the weapon of the future was not going to be missiles, but microbes, and that is just what COVID-19 truly is. It is a weaponized virus that’s really killing people, and at the same time is being used to control the people and destroy the economy. When I was a kid, I had a poster of Linda Ronstadt on my bedroom wall, I bet Bill had a poster of George Orwell on his.

Friends, you should feel privileged to be living in such a time as this, a time that the bible calls the last days. It is coming to pass right before your very eyes.

California is a funny place, I used to live there and it is certainly the land of ‘fruits and nuts’ as the old saying goes. But in 2020, it’s a whole lot nuttier than it used to be, and not only that, the nuts are killing people at an ever-increasing rate. Just days ago, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti rubber-stamped nearly ten thousand unmasked rioters to protest on the streets of Los Angeles, beaming with pride at the ‘long overdue social justice’ demonstrations. Those people were allowed to do anything they wanted to do, but churches had to close and small businesses of every kind were shuttered. What was his message? That social justice is good, and church and a free market economy are bad.

“…Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” ― Genesis 49:1a (KJB)

Bill Gates had it exactly correct when he predicted that the weapon of the future was not going to be missiles, but microbes, and that is just what COVID-19 truly is. It is a weaponized virus that’s really killing people, and at the same time is being used to control the people and destroy the economy.

Remember what Dr. Birx said that anyone who died of any condition but also had COVID-19, their death would be attributed to COVID-19?. That’s Lie #1. Here in Florida, as in many states across the country, the infection rates are being deliberately misreported.  That’s Lie #2. They want you to be afraid, and they do not want you to know that COVID-19 has a less than 1% death rate. Here in Saint Johns County, we have had a ten-fold increases in COVID cases, sounds scary, right? What they don’t want you to know is that only 12 people have died from it, roughly 0.6% of all cases.

COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon, if ever, because it has proven itself to be exactly what the New World Order needed to roll out The Great Reset. But just remember, Henry Ford tipped us off over 100 years ago, Nelson Rockefeller tipped us off a little over 60 years ago, and Bill Gates is tipping us off every time he opens his mouth.

We have been warned this day was coming, just take a look and see:

  • “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” – Henry Ford, 1922
  • “We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.” – David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991
  • “The world can therefore seize the opportunity to fulfill the long-held promise of a New World Order where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind.” – President George Herbert Walker Bush
  • “We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.” – Statement by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member James Warburg to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17th, 1950
  • “We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.” Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., in Foreign Affairs (July/August 1995)
  • “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. 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.” ― David Rockefeller, Memoirs

Friends, you should feel privileged to be living in such a time as this, a time that the bible calls the last days. It is coming to pass right before your very eyes. Did you ever wonder exactly how the whole world would transition to a New World Order? Look out your window, it’s happening as you read this. Tick, tock goes the clock of human history, if you’re planning on getting something done for the Lord, right now would be a great time. Later might not be on the calendar.

WILL AMERICA COLLAPSE FROM WITHIN? HAS “THE FOURTH TURNING” BEGUN!?

July 12, 2020 by Tom Horn

By Dr. Thomas Horn

In the WND article this week America is poised to collapse from within, Carol M. Swain warns that “America is poised to collapse from within. Her imminent demise will not come from foreign troops quartered on her soil. It will come from Marxists and anarchists who use racial grievance and the cries of the oppressed to dismantle America’s institutions and defenses.

“We are at a moment where our nation is at the mercy of domestic extortionists,” she correctly noted. “They have usurped power from impotent leaders no longer willing to fight for principles higher than themselves. Love of God and country have yielded to love of self.

“All this has left our nation teetering on the edge of a precipice.”[i]

Have We Entered the “Fourth Turning”?

As detailed more thoroughly in the bestselling book Saboteurs (FREE IN COLLECTIONS HERE), in 2008 and again in 2012, with input from Steve Quayle and me, my good friend Sue Bradley, an investigative journalist and blogger who has since gone home to be with Jesus (April 26, 2013) had started work on what would be one of her last articles. It was titled “The Fourth Turning: The Protocols and the Grey Champion.” A couple of months before she departed this life, she had e-mailed me from her hospital room and said she was about to expand her “Fourth Turning” work based on some Zenith 2016 (a most unusual all-time bestseller that looks into dozens of ancient seers that believed the election year 2016 would set in motion events leading to arrival of AntichristFREE IN COLLECTION) material I had just shared with her. Unfortunately, like with the passing of David Flynn, the world will never know what Sue was about to reveal. What we do understand now is that it was connected to a primary player in the leadup to the Trump administration—a man some believe was the actual power behind the throne in Washington, DC, for a while—Steve Bannon. This is because Sue’s unfinished research was partially based on a book published in 1997, The Fourth Turning, which seems to have deeply influenced Bannon’s worldview and possibly his eschatology. Turning describes itself as a work “that turns history into prophecy.” It explains cycles of life and generational archetypes through the examination of Western historical paradigms over the past five centuries. By surveying the past and identifying contemporary markers, William Strauss and Neil Howe, the authors of the study, determined an astoundingly prescient forecast in which they saw a cascade of incidents that would ultimately lead to chaos and the “Fourth Turning.” Keep in mind they made these predictions over twenty years ago, long before the September 11, 2001, attacks on America or the pandemic and financial issues of today. Among the scenarios they foresaw were:

The first could be economic distress with a government beset by fiscal crisis, the state laying claim to federal tax monies, federal marshals enforcing orders, tax rebellions, special forces, and an ensuing constitutional crisis;

The second is a terrorist attack involving an airliner, a military response, authorization for house-to-house searches, and false flag accusations against the administration;

The third scenario is an economic disaster involving Wall Street and a federal budget impasse that results in a stalemate;

The fourth consideration is eco-environmental malaise with the Centers for Disease Control announcing the spread of a new [coronavirus] communicable virus with quarantines and relocations;

The fifth projection is geopolitical in nature, with growing anarchy throughout the former Soviet republics prompting Russia to conduct training exercises around its borders, a Russian alliance with Iran, soaring gold and silver prices, and global military responses.

In other words, what we see around the world today.

In describing these insightful scenarios, Strauss and Howe felt a catalyst would unfold as a result of a specific dynamic, and, “An initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies.”[ii]

According to Strauss and Howe in 1997, this chain reaction was already prepped to unfold as the result of natural cycles or “Turnings” in which generations are doomed to forget—and thus to repeat—the mistakes of the past. The authors describe a Turning as “an era with a characteristic social mood, a new twist on how people feel about themselves and their nation. It results from the aging of the generation [before it].”[iii] A society enters a Turning once every twenty years or so, when all living generations begin to enter their next phases of life. The living generations, or saeculae, comprise four cyclical Turnings, characterized as:

The First Turning (THE HIGH): An era of enthusiastic collective strengthening and civic development, having burned the brush and swept the ashes of preceding structure.

The Second Turning (THE AWAKENING): Built on the energies and accomplishments of the High but finds increasing yearning for introspection with a high tolerance for spiritual expression outside the parameters of predetermined standards.

The Third Turning (THE UNRAVELING): Begins as the “society-wide embrace of the liberating cultural forces” loosed by the Awakening shows signs of civic disorder and decay, a heightened sense of self-reliance and an increasing withdrawal of public trust. This builds to a near crisis of downcast pessimism and a palpable pall that can only be remedied by yielding to the next.

The Fourth Turning (THE CRISES and the era we have now entered): By far, the most perilous as societies pass through the greatest and most dangerous gates of history. As desperate solutions are sought for “sudden threats” on multiple cultural fronts, confrontation is passionate and decisions are often reactive, aggressive. “Government governs, community obstacles are removed, and laws and customs that resisted change for decades are swiftly shunted aside. A grim preoccupation with civic peril causes spiritual curiosity to decline.… Public order tightens, private risk-taking abates, and…child-rearing reaches a smothering degree of protection and structure. The young focus their energy on worldly achievements, leaving values in the hands of the old. Wars are fought with fury and for maximum result.”[iv]

Through the examination of an enormous amount of political and cultural history, Strauss and Howe processed over five hundred years of Anglo-American cultural nuance into remarkable, well-organized, and predictable cycles, and it is from this reservoir they finally stake an uncanny claim:

Just after the millennium, America will enter a new era that will culminate with a crisis comparable to the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. The very survival of the nation will almost certainly be at stake.[v]

Strauss and Howe saw the United States of that time (1997) in the Third Turning, “midway through an Unraveling,” roughly a decade away from the start of the next Crisis or Fourth Turning:

America feels like it’s unraveling. Although we live in an era of relative peace and comfort, we have settled into a mood of pessimism about the long-term future, fearful that our superpower nation is somehow rotting from within.

The next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium.… Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation, and empire

The very survival of the nation will feel at stake.

Sometime before the year 2025 [3.5 years before Wormwood, will cause some to imagine a pretribulation rapture at that time], America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II.

The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule. If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and efforts—in other words, a TOTAL WAR.[vi]

The striking details contained within the Fourth Turning illustrate the precision that was distilled with a close examination of historical patterns and contemporary application.

Although the authors note that the events described are not absolute, they also insist that the cycles, these Turnings, cannot be interrupted. As summer follows spring, an Unraveling precedes a Crisis of Faustian proportions:

It will require us to lend a new seasonal interpretation to our revered American Dream. And it will require us to admit that our faith in linear progress has often amounted to a Faustian bargain with our children.

Faust always ups the ante, and every bet is double-or-nothing. Through much of the Third Turning, we have managed to postpone the reckoning. But history warns that we can’t defer it beyond the next bend in time.[vii]

While a “Faustian bargain” sounds ominous, there is little evidence that the Anglo-American “Dream” has undergone the introspection and discipline necessary to buffer the arrogant recklessness of this generation and its “progressive” government leaders.

NBC’s Chuck Todd noted, on the evening of November 4, 2008, that Barack Obama was a changing of the guard in the United States from the Baby Boomer presidencies of William Clinton and George W. Bush. The Toronto Globe and Mail referred to President-elect Obama as being a member of Generation X, being born in 1961. And Strauss and Howe assigned Generation X—the Thirteenth Generation—to those who brought America to chaos and the start of the current Fourth Turning.

Today, agents of chaos including former president Barrack Obama are doing exactly what Strauss and Howe forecast.

PAVING THE WAY FOR ANTICHRIST

But what does this have to do with Steve Bannon and his behind-the-scenes advisory position and ongoing influence with the Trump administration?

In 2009, Bannon called historian David Kaiser on the phone. At the time, professor Kaiser worked at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Bannon wanted to know if Kaiser, an expert on “the Fourth Turning,” would appear in a documentary he was producing based on Strauss and Howe’s generational theory (the film was released in 2010, titled “Generation Zero”).

Kaiser agreed to be part of the film and traveled to the Washington headquarters of Citizens United, where Bannon was at the time, to be interviewed. At one point during the recordings, Kaiser says Bannon pressured him to agree with something he believes. “He was talking about the wars of the fourth turnings,” Kaiser said, recalling how Bannon seemed sharply focused on making the point that another world war was on the horizon and that it would be a catalyst for the arrival of an international leader—the Grey Champion (Antichrist) that Sue Bradley had named her unfinished investigation after.

“You have the American Revolution, you have the Civil War, you have the Second World War; they’re getting bigger and bigger,” Bannon allegedly emphasized to Kaiser.

“Clearly, he was anticipating that in this ‘fourth turning’ there would be one at least as big. And he really made an effort, I remember, to get me to say that on the air.”[viii]

In a feature article for Huffington Post, Paul Blumenthal and J. M. Rieger echo Kaiser’s suspicions, but saw a darker underlying worldview in Bannon’s thinking. They wrote:

Bannon, who’s now ensconced in the West Wing as President Donald Trump’s closest adviser, has been portrayed as Trump’s main ideas guy. But in interviews, speeches and writing—and especially in his embrace of Strauss and Howe—he has made clear that he is, first and foremost, an apocalypticist.

In Bannon’s view, we are in the midst of an existential war, and everything is a part of that conflict. Treaties must be torn up, enemies named, culture changed. Global conflagration, should it occur, would only prove the theory correct. For Bannon, the Fourth Turning has arrived. The Grey Champion, a messianic strongman figure, may have already emerged. The apocalypse is now.[ix]

According to Strauss and Howe, an unexpected national leader would emerge during the current Fourth Turning against all odds from an older generation to become a “hero” who leads the globe into a New World Order. This commander—whom they call the Grey Champion (and who some of us could worry is Antichrist)—will continue in power as a result of war or conflict that keeps his regime in command (a second term for a US president or continuance as executive during presidential war powers or martial law that suspends elections?).

“The winners will now have the power to pursue the more potent, less incrementalist agenda about which they had long dreamed and against which their adversaries had darkly warned,” says the Fourth Turning. “This new regime will enthrone itself for the duration of the Crisis. Regardless of its ideology, that new leadership will assert public authority and demand private sacrifice. Where leaders had once been inclined to alleviate societal pressures, they will now aggravate them to command the nation’s attention.”[x]

Strauss and Howe were convinced when they wrote this thesis twenty years ago that the United States was in the Third Turning then, and that the next crises period or Fourth Turning would begin sometime following 2005 and end around 2025. In between these dates, the Grey Champion would appear.

Remarkably enough, most economists today point to the Lehman crisis in 2008 to explain the ramifications of the next global financial crisis, which the world’s leading authorities such as the Bank for International Settlements are now saying is going to hit global markets soon with a vengeance.[xi]

Does this mean we are in the middle now of the Fourth Turning?

It’s hard to argue against facts.

The foundations that once supported America’s stability and clout have weakened to the point that our institutions and infrastructure are crumbling. From unending accusations within the Deep State against Donald Trump to Soros-Antifa-Obama machinated anarchy amidst trumped-up racial tension in the streets, we have reached an unsustainable reality so reminiscent of Strauss and Howe’s generational prediction it’s getting harder each day to deny.

And then there is that “risk of catastrophe” in which the “nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence” the professors foresaw. Will the Soros and Obama-backed agitators currently wreaking havoc across America ignite the circumstances that lead to the Grey Champion’s authoritarian rule?

“Emboldened by a mainstream media apparatus which functions as a mouthpiece of Deep State interests, these activists are determined to overturn democratically elected officials and overturn law and order on the grounds that they personally disagree with the results” warned Michael Hart at StockBoardAsset.[xii]

He continued:

As we have seen in recent months, Trump supporters, conservatives, and other patriots are not afraid to confront leftist activists in the streets, and this is likely to intensify as these DNC-backed groups become more desperate and confrontational in their tactics.

James Comey’s congressional testimony…showed that the Trump administration is indeed attempting to break the old political order and its far-too-powerful Deep State. The cracks are surfacing now, and this will likely shatter and spill into many facets of social life outside of the realm of politics.

This crises-creation machine emanating from the manufacturers of descent who despise the new Republican president and who want the old order eclipsed by a revolutionary new world system are the very appliance that threatens to fuel the Fourth Turning described by Strauss and Howe, and perhaps to the Grey Champion of the apocalypse of Daniel and Revelation.

According to the Fourth Turning, America has experienced three such major crises before—the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the Great Depression and World War II, each followed by their respective periods of reconstruction.

These times were marked by social decay and civil dread that required Americans to carry a tremendous burden after massive conflict and substantial loss in order to rebuild and reinvent a better future.

Are we nearing the trigger event(s) or chaos stage of a final Fourth Turning?

More importantly, are enough Americans astute enough to resist and prepare for the inevitable as a result of the endgame under construction now by occult members of Shadowland and those Saboteurs working behind the scenes in Washington, DC?

A Man That Saw The Catastrophic Events Of 2020 In Advance Is Now Warning About What Will Happen In November…

July 2, 2020 by Michael Snyder

A few weeks ago, hardly anyone in America had ever heard of Pastor Dana Coverstone, but now hundreds of thousands of people all over the country are buzzing about him.  He leads a very small church in Burkesville, Kentucky and on June 25th he posted a video on Facebook about some remarkable things that he had seen in some of his dreams.  He probably thought that only a handful of his friends would see the video, but it quickly went viral.  At this point it has been watched by more than a million people on Facebook, and a copy that was posted to YouTube has now been viewed more than 600,000 times.  Personally, I have had countless people share his video with me over the past week, and it still hasn’t stopped.  But even though this video is spreading like wildfire, the mainstream media has been completely silent about it.  In fact, if you do a search on Google News for “Pastor Dana Coverstone”, you won’t find a single news story about his video.  What he was shown definitely does not fit their agenda, and so I expect that they will continue to generally ignore this phenomenon.

So what is it about his video that has people so excited?

Well, it is because he saw the catastrophic events of 2020 in advance, and he was also shown that more catastrophic events are coming.

Let’s start from the very beginning.  In December 2019, Pastor Coverstone had a dream in which he saw some very unusual things.  The following is from a transcript of his original video that my wife put together…

Here’s what happened:

Back in December I woke up, I had a dream. In that dream I saw a calendar. Starting January 2020. It was being flipped.  I saw January,  I saw February,  I saw March.  When March came up the hand held it and I saw the thing of finger underline the month of March, and the tap it three times.

So underline the month of March, tapped it three times.

So to me it was emphasis, something’s going to happen in March.

Then I saw April, May, June. When June came, the hand underlined June again and tapped it three times.

Then, in the vision I saw people marching, I saw protests. I saw people wearing masks, I saw lines going into hospitals. I saw typical medical doctors with needles or syringes, I saw people on ventilators I saw people who were very, very sick, very, very ill. I saw newspaper headlines trumpeting thousands of people getting sick. I saw ambulances, just flying down roads, and then I saw cities on fire.

I saw buildings being burned. I saw protesters with masks. I saw people who had their fists in the air, people who were yelling and screaming angry at just at the world. I saw courthouses,  I saw state houses surrounded.  I saw people who were mad at the world. I saw I saw guns shotguns specifically put in the air, held like this, (showing above his head) and I saw barriers within cities.

I told several men in my church about this and I can confirm who those men were and they’ll confirm what I’m telling you is what I told them.

Obviously this is a description of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rioting, looting and violence that erupted in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.

Since Pastor Coverstone posted his video after these things happened, a lot of people out there may think that he just made this dream up.

To head off that sort of criticism, Pastor Coverstone has posted testimonies from two men from his church that affirm that he shared this dream with them back when he was first given it.  You can find those testimonies right here. Of course there will be some people that try to claim that those two men are “making it up” too.  It amazes me the lengths that some people will go to in order to deny facts that are inconvenient.

As the events of 2020 began to unfold, Pastor Coverstone and members of his church came to realize the importance of that first dream.

Then, it late June, Pastor Coverstone had another dream that pertains to the second half of this year.  The following is another excerpt from the transcript of his original video that my wife made…

With that in mind, on Monday night I had another dream.

It woke me from my bed.  I made notes about it.  I shot some video of myself just making sure to remember. Here’s what I saw.

I saw a calendar. Start with the calendar. As I was having this, the calendar was up, a white figure appeared.  To me, it was a representing God the Holy Spirit, something pure, something righteous, something true, something Holy because there was nothing sinister about it.  Nothing evil, but I heard the voice say, “part two, part two”.

I saw June, go, I saw July. I saw August, and then I saw September, and I saw the finger underneath the word September and I like like emphasizing it and tap the three times. Then I saw October come up, and then I saw November and this is when it got real to me in the dream.  I think the intensity for me…  when I woke up my heart rate was about 180. So that was Monday night, and I woke up not feeling very well at all I was up during the night not feeling well.

But anyway,…  The minute the finger underlined November three times instead of tapping it, I saw a fist ball up and it hit the calendar.

And literally, the calendar exploded into the wall, the numbers seem that they were 3d and they were falling everywhere.

There was a cloud of chaos that started in there. The next thing I saw was I saw I saw armed protesters. I saw fighting in the streets, I saw people pummeling one another.  I saw businesses shuttered and shut up.

I saw schools close. I saw school rooms with cobwebs hanging in them and like things like papers falling off the wall and posters…  like no one had been in them for months.

I saw banks.  Bank buildings with the roof being taken off.  It looked almost that alien abduction because money was flying through the roof into some type of like a vacuum cleaner.  It sounds kind of strange, but I was watching wealth, just being taken. I saw politicians in back rooms, making deals with people. Patting people on the back and laughing and smiling and smirking.

Considering the fact that “part one” ended up being completely accurate, what Pastor Coverstone was shown in “part two” should be extremely sobering for all of us.

It appears that things will start to really escalate starting in September, and it appears that November will be some sort of major turning point.

Sadly, Pastor Coverstone is being relentlessly attacked on social media for sharing what he was shown, and that is extremely unfortunate.

We live at a time when there is so much hatred in this country, and it is only going to get worse.

This chapter in American history is going to be a very painful one, and most of the U.S. population still has absolutely no idea what is coming.

The first Antichrists

Exclusive: Scott Lively sees prophecy unfolding as never before

By Scott Lively
Published June 29, 2020 at 8:07pm

With prophecy unfolding before us as never before, there is great interest in the topic of the Antichrist. This has prompted me to finally publish my book “Dynasty of Darkness: Satan’s long serpentine trail through human history in the role of successive antichrists, and the imminent rise of his last days kingdom.”

As the subtitle suggests, I believe the figure we call the Antichrist is whatever human host the demon Satan happens to be inhabiting at any given time and that there has been a very long succession of them from the beginning of time. This week I published the third chapter of “Dynasty of Darkness,” titled “Unmasking the Antichrists of Earliest Antiquity” in video and PDF form. I will gladly send a free copy by email upon request to scottlivelyministries@gmail.com.

To better understand and recognize the final Antichrist, it is helpful to review his resume, as it were, especially since he is almost certainly active in the world today but still hidden per 2 Thessalonians 2:7 (“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.”) So let’s look to the Bible for the clues.

‘[Satan] was a murderer from the beginning’ (John 8:44)

My hypothesis is that Satan can operate only in the physical world by spiritual possession of a living person or animal. If so, the only way Satan is capable of murder is by the hand of a human host. The first murder in the Bible was of Abel by his brother Cain, who introduced that grievous sin to human society. The first Antichrist, therefore, appears to be Cain. For His own reasons, the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one finding him would slay him in vengeance, warning “whoever kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him seven-fold” (Genesis 4:8-15). This “Mark of Cain” is reminiscent of the last days “Mark of the Beast” in that both marks, while having different purposes, are inseparably associated with a man of evil by which the whole world can recognize him.

Several generations later, Cain’s direct descendant Lamech, the first person specifically identified as a polygamist in the Bible, fits the Antichrist profile even more closely.

“Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, ‘Listen to my voice, you wives of Lamech. … For I have killed a man for wounding me, And a boy for striking me. If Cain is avenged seven-fold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold'” (Genesis 4:23-24).

Not only is polygamist Lamech the second identified murderer of the Bible, and the first identified megalomaniac, his boast reflects a satanic principle of vengeance that directly contradicts the Messiah’s commandment in Matthew 18:21-22. In that passage, Peter asked the Lord whether it was his duty to forgive his brother seven times. Jesus replied we must forgive “seventy times seven.”

It appears that Lamech was the Antichrist of his time. Based on the average multi-century lifespan of the pre-flood world, Lamech’s term as Antichrist may have extended through his entire lifespan, perhaps until the flood itself.

In any case, insufficient details are provided to specifically identify other Antichrist figures before the great flood. However, from what we read in Genesis 6, we know that through his agents, both human and angelic (and perhaps hybrids of the two — Genesis 6:4), Satan managed to corrupt the pre-flood world so completely that God was forced to cleanse the earth of all human beings except righteous Noah and his family (Genesis 6-9).

The first Antichrist figure in the post-flood world was Nimrod, who became “a mighty one on the earth.” Nimrod was the grandson of Ham and great-grandson of Noah.

Ham appears to have served as a carrier of the wicked pre-flood culture into the new world, corrupting at least two of his sons (Canaan and Sidon). In Genesis 9:22-25, Ham’s son Canaan was banished from Noah’s presence for what the ancient Hebrew sages concluded was most likely an act of homosexual molestation of his grandfather Noah (Rabbi Elie Munk, “Call of the Torah,” p. 220).

As I addressed in Chapter two of “Dynasty of Darkness,” sexual perversion is one of the six Antichrist attributes commonly seen in likely Antichrist figures through history, meaning that Canaan (almost certainly), and possibly Ham as well, could have been Antichrists.

Ham’s grandson through Cush was Nimrod, described in Genesis 10:8-11: “He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, ‘Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.’ The beginning of his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land he went forth into Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah” (Genesis 10:8-11).

Nimrod’s campaign to build the Tower of Babel was an implementation of the Satanic goal described in Isaiah 14:13: “For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God.'” Under Nimrod’s rule, the people said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:4).

Nimrod was a totalitarian megalomaniac (another of the six Antichrist attributes) who exploited all of the people and resources under his control to build a monument to himself. This is the model of Antichrist government we will see repeated throughout the following centuries. Time after time, from the Pharaohs of Egypt to the emperors of Rome, to the fuhrer of the Third Reich, we will see armies of slaves building gigantic structures intended to reflect the god-like power and importance of the supreme ruler. Nimrod was the first in the post-flood world.

Importantly, centuries later, the two nations founded by Nimrod (Babylon and Assyria), were, respectively, the conquerors and enslavers of the two Houses/Kingdoms of the Hebrew people. The House of Israel was conquered by the Assyrians in 722 B.C. and the House of Judah was conquered by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.

This brief summary of the earliest Antichrists offers numerous clues as to the last-days Antichrist, who is soon to be revealed. For more on this theme, please feel free to email me.

‘Plague’ of Locusts goes Global Hitting Argentina: ‘An End of Days Prophecy’ says Rabbi

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz June 21, 2020 , 12:01 pm

I will show him wondrous deeds As in the days when You sallied forth from the land of Egypt. Micah 7:15 (The Israel Bible™)

Locusts are currently swarming on three continents as an outbreak of the vermin has now spread from Paraguay into Argentina. The National Service of Agri-Food Health and Quality (SENASA) said the swarm, estimated at 40 million creatures, was passing through the province of Chaco in northern Argentina on Tuesday. SENASA reported that the swarms are composed of the Schistocerca Cancellata species of locust in the subfamily Cyrtacanthacridinae which is different than the desert locust currently devastating Africa and southwest Asia. The South American species has an insatiable appetite for crops of wheat, corn, and oats. These are mostly grown as feed for cattle, a  major agriproduct of Argentina. The voracious short-horned grasshoppers are devouring enough crops to feed 2,500 people every day. 

High temperatures and wind are causing the swarm to move up to 100 kilometers a day. Other countries in South America have been made aware of the outbreak and are preparing for the possibility the swarms will arrive at their borders.

Meanwhile, Africa is facing a probable third wave of locust invasion in 6 months. A wave of locusts swept through East Africa last year, returning again in 2020 in swarms estimated to be 20 times larger. The second round of infestation is described as the worst in 70 years.

Swarms are often tens of square kilometers in size.  A swarm of just one square kilometer eats the same amount of food in one day as 35,000 people. The swarms also can travel 93 miles a day making efforts to control an outbreak even more difficult. Officials warned that further rains in the region could lead to an even larger outbreak.

Coronavirus pandemic restrictions prevent many farmers from going out to their fields to battle the swarms. In addition, the pandemic has slowed the delivery of vital pesticides and equipment form other countries. Many field officers have been prevented from tracking and reporting on the infestation due to restrictions. This wave very much resembles the Biblical plague in this respect, coming as part of a wave of catastrophes that left the land of Egypt bereft of any food.

Locusts invaded all the land of Egypt and settled within all the territory of Egypt in a thick mass; never before had there been so many, nor will there ever be so many again. They covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt. Exodus 10:14-15 

According to Jewish tradition, the ten-plagues will reappear before the Messiah. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, explained this aspect of the Messianic process to Breaking Israel News, quoting the Prophet Micah.

I will show him wondrous deeds As in the days when You sallied forth from the land of EgyptMicah 7:15

Jewish sources predict that all of the plagues will reappear in the final Redemption but in even more powerful forms. It is written in Midrash Tanchuma, homiletic teachings collected around the fifth century, that “just as God struck the Egyptians with 10 plagues, so too He will strike the enemies of the Jewish people at the time of the Redemption.”

This concept was explained by Rabbi Bahya ben Asher, a 13th-century Spanish commentator, who wrote, “In Egypt, God used only part of His strength. When the final redemption comes, God will show much, much more of His power.”

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb in Jerusalem, expects more plagues to appear around the globe. “The plagues struck Egypt as a punishment for their treatment of the Nation of Israel as God’s Chosen People,” Rabbi Berger explained. “When the plagues reappear in the End-of-Days, they will come as a punishment upon any nation or even an individual anywhere in the world who oppressed Jews during this 2,000-year exile.” 

“We know that Esau as Edom oppressed Israel. It used to be that we could identify Esav’s offspring but the nations have been dispersed and intermingled. But this justice must be done for the Final Redemption to take place.”

The rabbi cited the Prophet Joel:

I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshafat. There I will contend with them Over My very own people, Yisrael, Which they scattered among the nations. For they divided My land among themselves Joel 4:2

THE GLOBAL ELITES ARE CALLING IT ‘THE GREAT RESET’ AND IT IS EXACTLY WHAT END TIMES BOOKS AND MOVIES HAVE BEEN WARNING YOU ABOUT FOR DECADES

The COVID-19 pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future in the Great Reset.

We are living in an amazing time, a time foretold within the pages of the bible, and we have been privileged to watch them leap off the pages and into our daily lives. Prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes, and it is awesome. But there is so much happening, with myriad events coming from seemingly unconnected places yet they are all connected and all part of the same plan. The global elites who run things have been kind enough to give it a name, they call it ‘The Great Reset’, and it is the New World Order. It has arrived. Here’s what you need to know.

“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 17:12-14 (KJB)

Think about COVID-19, the lockdowns, the economic crashes, the mandatory mask wearing, the race riotsANTIFAID2020Bill GatesBlack Lives Matter, the Declaration Of Human FraternityChrislam, ponder for a moment on all of it. When you have wrapped your head around all those things, now wrap your head around this. Everything we have been experiencing, it is all part of the Great Reset, and it is all driving towards the same outcome. That is, the resetting of the entire world to prepare the people for the arrival of Antichrist. That’s how close we are to seeing him step out of the shadows and onto the world stage.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 (KJB)

Paul our apostle tells us that two things need to take place before the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church can happen. First, there will be a great falling away from teaching and preaching bible doctrine, that has already taken place and gets worse every day. Second, the ‘man of sin’ needs to be revealed, the man who will receive the spirit of Antichrist which will transform him into the son of perdition. Paul says the Church will see that man revealed in his pre-satanic state. I believe we have already seen him, I could be wrong, but that’s my best guess. In any event, the Rapture of the Church remains at this hour a mere kitten’s whisker away from taking place.

Please be sitting with your seats locked in the upright position, Flight #777 is preparing for takeoff. This is not a game, be ready for what comes next. We are going to see some strange and terrifying things before we fly. Count on it.

THIS IS THE NEW WORLD ORDER, IT HAS ARRIVED.

Now is the time for a ‘great reset’

FROM WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM: COVID-19 lockdowns may be gradually easing, but anxiety about the world’s social and economic prospects is only intensifying. There is good reason to worry: a sharp economic downturn has already begun, and we could be facing the worst depression since the 1930s. But, while this outcome is likely, it is not unavoidable.

To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.

THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO PURSUE A GREAT RESET, BUT THE MOST URGENT IS COVID-19. HAVING ALREADY LED TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DEATHS, THE PANDEMIC REPRESENTS ONE OF THE WORST PUBLIC-HEALTH CRISES IN RECENT HISTORY. AND, WITH CASUALTIES STILL MOUNTING IN MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD, IT IS FAR FROM OVER.

This will have serious long-term consequences for economic growth, public debt, employment, and human wellbeing. According to the Financial Times, global government debt has already reached its highest level in peacetime. Moreover, unemployment is skyrocketing in many countries: in the US, for example, one in four workers have filed for unemployment since mid-March, with new weekly claims far above historic highs. The International Monetary Fund expects the world economy to shrink by 3% this year – a downgrade of 6.3 percentage points in just four months.

ALL OF THIS WILL EXACERBATE THE CLIMATE AND SOCIAL CRISES THAT WERE ALREADY UNDERWAY. SOME COUNTRIES HAVE ALREADY USED THE COVID-19 CRISIS AS AN EXCUSE TO WEAKEN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS AND ENFORCEMENT. AND FRUSTRATIONS OVER SOCIAL ILLS LIKE RISING INEQUALITY – US BILLIONAIRES’ COMBINED WEALTH HAS INCREASED DURING THE CRISIS – ARE INTENSIFYING.

Left unaddressed, these crises, together with COVID-19, will deepen and leave the world even less sustainable, less equal, and more fragile. Incremental measures and ad hoc fixes will not suffice to prevent this scenario. We must build entirely new foundations for our economic and social systems. The level of cooperation and ambition this implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream. In fact, one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.

Likewise, populations have overwhelmingly shown a willingness to make sacrifices for the sake of health-care and other essential workers and vulnerable populations, such as the elderly. And many companies have stepped up to support their workers, customers, and local communities, in a shift toward the kind of stakeholder capitalism to which they had previously paid lip service.

Clearly, the will to build a better society does exist. We must use it to secure the Great Reset that we so badly need. That will require stronger and more effective governments, though this does not imply an ideological push for bigger ones. And it will demand private-sector engagement every step of the way.

THE CORONAVIRUS PLANNEDEMIC IS AN ACT OF WAR DESIGNED TO CRASH THE GLOBAL ECONOMIES AND BRING IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER WITH A DIGITAL ID

The Great Reset agenda would have three main components.

The first would steer the market toward fairer outcomes. To this end, governments should improve coordination (for example, in tax, regulatory, and fiscal policy), upgrade trade arrangements, and create the conditions for a “stakeholder economy.” At a time of diminishing tax bases and soaring public debt, governments have a powerful incentive to pursue such action.

Moreover, governments should implement long-overdue reforms that promote more equitable outcomes. Depending on the country, these may include changes to wealth taxes, the withdrawal of fossil-fuel subsidies, and new rules governing intellectual property, trade, and competition.

The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability. Here, the large-scale spending programs that many governments are implementing represent a major opportunity for progress. The European Commission, for one, has unveiled plans for a €750 billion ($826 billion) recovery fund. The US, China, and Japan also have ambitious economic-stimulus plans.

THE GREAT RESET OF THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

Rather than using these funds, as well as investments from private entities and pension funds, to fill cracks in the old system, we should use them to create a new one that is more resilient, equitable, and sustainable in the long run. This means, for example, building “green” urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.

The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges. During the COVID-19 crisis, companies, universities, and others have joined forces to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, and possible vaccines; establish testing centers; create mechanisms for tracing infections; and deliver telemedicine. Imagine what could be possible if similar concerted efforts were made in every sector.

The COVID-19 crisis is affecting every facet of people’s lives in every corner of the world. But tragedy need not be its only legacy. On the contrary, the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future.

IT BEGINS: DOMESTIC TERROR GROUPS ANTIFA AND BLACK LIVES MATTER HAVE BEGUN A 20-CITY CAMPAIGN OF ARSON, LOOTING AND BOMBING OF BUSINESSES

Reginald Denny was a truck driver who had the bad fortune of driving his truck along the same streets where people were protesting the treatment by police of Rodney King back in 1992. Denny had nothing to do with that, he was just a commercial truck driver on his route. When he stopped his truck as the protesters formed a line across the road, he was pulled out of his truck, and beaten into a coma. I want you to remember that as you are driving in the coming days through the streets of your city. Whatever you do, do not stop your vehicle should Black Lives Matter or ANTIFA terrorists try to block your movement. It is highly likely your windows will be smashed and you will be pulled out and beaten.

by Geoffrey Grider May 29, 2020

Take a look at the following scenes of the terror campaign of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, this is war, people, and the police may or may not be able to keep you safe.

The radical Left in this country have decided to attack, and have already begun a campaign of domestic terror that right now is playing out in over 20 American cities tonight, with many more planned in the coming days. Black Lives Matter has once again joined up with the fascists of ANTIFA, with the CNN headquarters in Atlanta surrounded by anarchists who have already set of bombs in the hopes of gaining access to the building. America is at war, this is exactly what the Democrats have been planning, and it has begun.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” 2 Timothy 3:1 (KJB)

EMMANUEL MACRON IN FRANCE POSITIONS HIMSELF TO BECOME THE LEADER OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER, HAS NEAR UNANIMOUS BACKING FROM UN SECURITY COUNCIL

Indeed, it would appear that the world could use a new leader in this time of crisis — one who is prepared to put global interests above personal or political aggrandizement. And until the United States is prepared to offer such an individual, there may be no better to fill that void than France’s young, fresh voice: Emmanuel Macron. At least Macron is thinking in the right direction, and it makes me happy to see that. In fact, the sooner the Antichrist will come out and reveal himself, the quicker we can get out of here of Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines. So here’s to hoping Emmanuel Macron fills those shoes, or should I say, those red, pointy-toed boots with the whiff of sulfur. 

by Geoffrey GriderApril 20, 2020

The 42-year-old president Emmanuel Macron, who has faced many challenges governing his country, is now positioning himself to take over the mantle of global New World Order leader. And right now, he has no real challengers.

As people who study the end times scripture of truth from the bible, we have long known that when Antichrist arises, he rises at a time when there is global chaos and uncertainty, with a plan to bring in global ‘peace and safety’. So it’s interesting to now see Emmanuel Macron of France, who actually looks like the Central Casting idea of Antichrist, wanting to bring in an era of ‘global peace’. And guess what? He has the backing and support of nearly all of the United Nations Security Council. Pass me the popcorn, please, this is getting good.

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3,4,6 (KJB)

Round and round she goes, where she’ll stop, only God knows. At least Macron is thinking in the right direction, and it makes me happy to see that. In fact, the sooner the Antichrist will come out and reveal himself, the quicker we can get out of here of Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines. So here’s to hoping Emmanuel Macron fills those shoes, or should I say, those red, pointy-toed boots with the whiff of sulfur.

  • FUN FACT: Go to the UN Security Council site and the first bold words you see are ‘peace and security‘ Guess Paul knew what he was saying after all, eh?

Emmanuel Macron In France Positioning Himself As ‘Fresh Faced’ Leader Of The New World Order, And It’s Working

FROM CNN: The vehicle of this leadership campaign is Macron’s proposal for a worldwide ceasefire — a truce everywhere from Afghanistan to Syria, Iraq and Yemen. And he says he’s a good part of the way there. There are five permanent members of the UN Security Council (France, China, Russia, Britain and the US) and four of the five are on board, according to Macron.

Macron also says he hopes to secure the agreement of the final member, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, within hours. UN Secretary General António Guterres had already called for an “immediate, global ceasefire,” observing that “the fury of the virus illustrates the folly of war,” though with no real buy-in until Macron weighed in.

Clearly, such an action would not eradicate some of the greatest challenges to world peace. Even with the backing of the entire Security Council, there’s no assurance Afghanistan’s Taliban or their supporters in Pakistan will turn down the heat there. Russia and Turkey are maintaining their presence in Syria, whose dictator Bashar al-Assad will be ill-inclined to give any breathing room to the insurgents who continue their increasingly beleaguered efforts to unseat him. Iranian-backed militias will continue their operations in Iraq, despite Iran’s desperate condition in the face of the pandemic. Chinese warships will continue to patrol the South China Sea to cement its hold over the long-disputed islands in this strategic waterway.

Still, the truce initiative could be a start. And Macron indicated his intention to raise it with the G20 during a worldwide conference call of the group’s finance ministers Wednesday evening. The concept was broached in his interview on Radio France International when Macron also debuted the idea of a moratorium on all debt payments by African nations as a means of helping to control what promises to be potentially the most devastating continent-wide target of the coronavirus because of the lack of resources.

But where would such Macron initiatives leave the United States? Clearly with a more diminished presence on the world stage than ever at a time when only the greatest, most intense universal action can prevent global catastrophe. A global backlash has already greeted Trump’s ill-timed and even more ill-conceived pledge to turn off all subsidies to the World Health Organization at the very height of the most profound challenge to global health in a century.

Macron has already taken a tough stand against some of the world’s leading powers and their actions during the pandemic. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian summoned to the Quai d’Orsay, the Chinese ambassador to France, who received a tongue-lashing for criticizing Western response to the coronavirus, even accusing French nursing home workers of “abandoning their posts overnight … and leaving their residents to die of hunger and disease.”

China’s foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian quickly backed down, repudiating his ambassador’s remarks. Not long afterward, Macron added Xi Jinping’s name to his list of backers of his global truce. At the same time, a number of European countries have complained about China selling them faulty medical gear and test kits. None of this calculated to cement Xi as a leader to whom the world can turn in its time of need.

All this comes as China, particularly, has sought to raise its profile and assume a larger role on the world stage, filling a vacuum it perceives with the increasingly erratic performance of Donald Trump and his increasingly go-it-alone positions.

Indeed, it would appear that the world could use a new leader in this time of crisis — one who is prepared to put global interests above personal or political aggrandizement. And until the United States is prepared to offer such an individual, there may be no better to fill that void than France’s young, fresh voice: Emmanuel Macron.

Photo Surfaces of W.H.O. Chief Meeting Chinese Officials with Shiva: Hindu ‘God of Destruction’

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 16, 2020 , 11:53 am

“This is what he said: ‘The fourth beast [means]—there will be a fourth kingdom upon the earth which will be different from all the kingdoms; it will devour the whole earth, tread it down, and crush it.” Daniel 7:23 (The Israel Bible™)

A photo posted to Twitter over one year ago by the head of the World Health Organization appears benign at first glance but a closer look reveals that the image depicts a meeting between the WHO and a Chinese organization focused on the domination of global markets. Even more disturbing is that the meeting is being overseen by the statue of the Hindu goddess known as Shiva the Destroyer.

A photo has resurfaced showing a high-level meeting between World Health Organization Officials and Chinese health officials. The photo was posted in January 2019 on the twitter feed of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus who has served as the  Director-General of the World Health Organization since 2017. Inexplicably, prominently displayed at the head of the table is a statue of the Hindu goddess, Shiva, also known as “Shiva the Destroyer.”

WHO & #China have enjoyed a long & productive partnership. WHO is proud to have supported the overseas training of more than 2000 Chinese #HealthWorkers. Grateful for China’s commitment to strengthening health systems in other countries through its Belt and Road Initiative. pic.twitter.com/IigqsDsEOI

— Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (@DrTedros) January 16, 2019

The tweet states that the occasion was to celebrate the WHO’s participation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative by supporting the “overseas training more than 2,000 Chinese health workers.” This is even more inexplicable than the presence of the statue of a Hindu deity at the meeting since The  Belt and Road Initiative has nothing to do with health work. It is, in fact, a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013 involving infrastructure development and investments in nearly 70 countries and international organizations in Asia, Europe, and Africa. Formerly named One Belt One Road (OBOR), the name was changed in 2016 when the Chinese government considered the emphasis on the word “one” was prone to misinterpretation. However, “One Belt One Road” is still used in Chinese-language media. 

The stated objectives are “to construct a unified large market and make full use of both international and domestic markets, through cultural exchange and integration, to enhance mutual understanding and trust of member nations, ending up in an innovative pattern with capital inflows, talent pool, and technology database.” Critics see it as a push for Chinese dominance in global affairs with a China-centered trading network.

President Trump has been quietly working to oppose the OBOR with a program titled the Free and Open Indo-Pacific strategy (FOIP). The European Union supports the OBOR despite the objections of several member nations.

Shiva is one of the principal deities of Hinduism and is known as “The Destroyer” within the Trimurti, the Hindu trinity that includes Brahma and Vishnu. In Hinduism, Shiva represents a duality of being both a benefactor and a malignant destroyer. 

Devdutt Pattanaik, an Indian mythologist, wrote an article in Economic Times explaining how Shiva fits into modern corporate society.

“Organizations are built by people who have the desire to achieve something,” Pattanaik wrote.”This desire makes them Brahma, the creator of the organization, but when their desire ceases and they let go of the organization and they become Shiva, the destroyer.

Hinduism is not one of the five religions recognized by the Chinese government so it is not known why the statue of a Hindu deity would be displayed at the meeting.

Perhaps even more disturbing is the large statue of Shiva the Destroyer prominently displayed at the entrance he European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, in Switzerland. CERN operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Physicist Fritjof Capra explains its enigmatic presence at the laboratory by saying, “For the modern physicists, then, Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter.”

In 2012, CERN was granted official observer status at the UN. 

It is interesting to note that nuclear research has been associated with Shiva since its inception. J. Robert Oppenheimer, known as “the father of the atomic bomb” for his work on the bombs dropped on Japan at the end of WWII recited a quote referring to Shiva from the Hindu text, the Baghavid-Gita, at the first atom bomb test in 1945.

“I am become death, the destroyer of worlds,” Oppenheimer said. 

It is believed that he was noting that like the Hindu deity Shiva, a nuclear weapon has inherent duality beneficial as well as horrifically destructive:

The image becomes even more disturbing when considering the past of its twitter host, Tedros Adhanom. Tedros’s candidacy for the WHO director-general was opposed vigorously by several Ethiopian parties, due to his career in the Tigray People’s Liberation Front,  the most powerful of the armed liberation movements in Ethiopia with decidedly Marxist ideologies and an abysmal record of human rights violations. TPLF sees self-determination as the launching pad for the ultimate socialist revolution. The TPLF provided millions of dollars in financial support for Tedros’s candidacy in WHO.

In addition, when running Ethiopia’s health ministry, he was known to discourage journalists from reporting about suspected cholera cases in the country while deliberately preventing life-saving actions. His ministry was accused of misappropriating over $7 million in funds appropriated for these epidemics.

Tedros has identified universal health coverage as his top priority at WHO. In 2017, Tedros chose President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, a leader with a horrifying record of human rights abuse, to serve as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador. Observers said Tedros was returning a campaign favor.

The WHO under his leadership has been heavily criticized for its reaction to the spread of the coronavirus. Tedros was criticized by some government officials and experts and was perceived to have acted slowly in his efforts to stem the epidemic, and as having a too-close relationship with the government of China where the pandemic originated. Tedros praised China for its containment measures, describing them as a “new standard for outbreak control”, a position which was criticized in light of China’s efforts to suppress information.

Billions Of Locusts Descend Upon Africa In Larger Swarm Of Biblical Proportions – Round 2

By Andrew Bieszad on April 11, 2020 in Featured, General

East Africa saw herself afflicted by locust swarms of Biblical proportions. Now the same swarms are back, but even bigger than before, with locusts numbering in the billions as is reported by the Associated Press.

Weeks before the coronavirus spread through much of the world, parts of Africa were already threatened by another kind of plague, the biggest locust outbreak some countries had seen in 70 years.

Now the second wave of the voracious insects, some 20 times the size of the first, is arriving. Billions of the young desert locusts are winging in from breeding grounds in Somalia in search of fresh vegetation springing up with seasonal rains.

Millions of already vulnerable people are at risk. And as they gather to try to combat the locusts, often in vain, they risk spreading the virus — a topic that comes a distant second for many in rural areas.

It is the locusts that “everyone is talking about,” said Yoweri Aboket, a farmer in Uganda. “Once they land in your garden they do total destruction. Some people will even tell you that the locusts are more destructive than the coronavirus. There are even some who don’t believe that the virus will reach here.” (source)

Locusts eat crops.

No crops means no food.

No food means starvation.

Starvation means social anxiety and more chaos.

Starvation and chaos are a classic formula for displacing populations.

Now add in the situation with COVID-19, and the nightmare is worse than ever before.

Prepare for another wave of migration to Europe as hungry people seek to flee from their countries.

Likewise, expect to see more rhetoric from European nationalist groups about ‘hordes of African invaders’.

It will be interesting to see what the international response will be, and especially from the European nations as this situation worsens.
