Geopolitical tensions around the world are converging and could soon create pain for consumers in the form of higher prices on store shelves and at the gasoline pump.

Walmart warned that higher prices would translate into higher costs for its customers. The largest U.S. retailer echoed the sentiments of retail companies around the U.S, who have stated that import duties would be passed along to consumers.

The threat of higher retail prices comes at a pivotal juncture, and could pack a one-two inflationary punch with higher gas. Crude prices, which have rallied more than 30% in 2019 and pushed up gas prices, are being spurred by turmoil in the Middle East and Venezuela.

And with tensions rising between the U.S. and Iran, “we think an escalation of tensions around Iran could possibly be the most underestimated tail risk over the course of the next 12 months,” economists at Bank of America said in research this week.

When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not damage the oil and the wine.”— Revelation 6:5-6 NASB

The White House withdrew in February from the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, a measure that banned the U.S. and Russia from deploying land-based missiles with ranges between 310 and 3,420 miles. Washington argued that Moscow’s Novator 9M729 missile violated the agreement’s restrictions, while Russian officials rejected this and counterclaimed that the Pentagon’s own Aegis Ashore defense system in Eastern Europe could be used offensively, thus violating the treaty.

Revelation 6 tells us that with all the war, famine and disease, nearly one-half of the Gentiles on planet Earth are going to die.

I can understand why the world is blind because they have rejected the light so they are in the dark.

They don’t believe the Bible so obviously they don’t believe any of these things are real.

The battle has already begun. The darkness is already falling, but in the midst of the darkness the glory of God will arise on His holy ones and they will do great exploits unlike anything this world has ever seen (Isaiah 60).

Jesus repeatedly warned his followers to be on the alert because false messiahs would come in his name (Matthew 24:5, 24, 42-43, 25:13, Mark 13:33). He expected them to watch and discern the signs of the times. He rebuked those who could not (Matthew 16:2-3).

The Apostle John warned a counterfeit messiah would appear in the last days. So we have been warned. Now the hour has come. The false messiah is here. 

I did not write this to scare people, nor do I claim any inside knowledge of God’s prophetic timetable.

Rather, my intent is to stimulate discussion and awaken the sleeping Christian church to the possibility that the return of Jesus Christ may be near. Because if it is, there are myriad scriptures that warn the brethren to be prepared, not to let the oil in their lamps run low like the parable Jesus told about the “foolish virgins.”

If Thucydides were watching, he would say that China and the United States are right on script sleepwalking towards what could be the grandest collision in history. Thucydides, of course, was the historian of classical Greece who explained the driver that led Athens and Sparta to the war that destroyed both. Thucydides’s Trap is the term I coined to make vivid his insight about the dangerous dynamic that occurs when a rising power (like Athens or China) threatens to displace a ruling power (like Sparta or the United States). As Henry Kissinger has noted, this concept provides the best lens available for looking through the noise and news of the day to understand the underlying forces at work. The past five hundred years have seen sixteen cases in which a rising power threatened to topple a ruling power from its position of predominance. Twelve ended in war.

We have moved into new, uncharted terrain in which the dangers are greater than the opportunities.

As rich countries, strip poorer countries of their natural resources in an attempt to re-stabilize their own, the people of poor countries become increasingly desperate. This deteriorating situation, besides pressuring rich countries to allow increased immigration, further exacerbates already stretched political tensions and threatens global political and economic security. 

There are two problems for our species’ survival – nuclear war and environmental catastrophe – and we’re hurtling towards them. Knowingly. 

My first red flag came when I reported on the carnage in Syria and the many nations involved in the fighting that had turned this into an all out world war just as the Bible had predicted. Syria is never at war with anyone. The only time Syria is at war it is always Biblical. Syria is Armageddon.   

Wikipedia: The ongoing conflict in Syria is widely described as a series of overlapping proxy wars between the regional and world powers, primarily between the US and Russia[1][2][3][4][5][6] as well as between Iran and Saudi Arabia

We are living in the ‘End Times’ or in the Book of Revelations, according to my research, which I will provide links to, below for further reading.  

My research concludes that the end is not coming but that we are already living in ‘the end of days’. That of the four horsemen of the Book of Revelations two have already passed, one is here now and one (pale) remains. 

We just do not have that much time left. God is winding things down on planet earth and we happen to be the people of the end generation; consider it a privilege, not a burden!

Ezekiel tells us that Gog, the nation that will lead all of the other powers of darkness against Israel, will come out of the north. Biblical scholars have been saying for generations that Gog must be Russia. What other powerful nation is to the north of Israel? None.

This war is so close, that the stage is being set for what could explode into World War III at any moment.

You are overlooking that the enemy is right at our gates! And no warning is going out! This watch­man is doing that work, I am here now warning our people.  

Where are the watchmen? Where are the alarms? They are silent.

Instead of sounding the alarm many of God’s people are actually embracing him, celebrating his arrival, and calling him a blessing from God. This is the spiritual blindness of America.

This is not the time to celebrate. Trump is not a blessing from God. He is from hell. He is the spirit of antichrist. 

American farmers are battling several issues when it comes to producing our food. Regulated low prices, tariffs, and the inability to export have all cut into the salaries of farmers.  They are officially in crisis mode, just like the United States’ food supply.

“The farm economy’s in pretty tough shape,” said John Newton, chief economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation. “When you look out on the horizon of things to come, you start to see some cracks.” Average farm income has fallen to near 15-year lows under president Donald Trump’s policies, and in some areas of the country, farm bankruptcies are soaring.  And with slightly higher interest rates, many don’t see borrowing more money as an option.  “A lot of farmers are going to give the president the benefit of the doubt, and have to date. But the longer the trade war goes on, the more that dynamic changes,” said Brian Kuehl, executive director of Farmers for Free Trade, according to Politico.

“You’ve had farms that have gone out of business, that have gone bankrupt because of this trade war,” said Kuehl of Farmers for Free Trade. “There’s a lot of farmers going through tough conversations right now with their lenders.” And so far, the government’s solution to the problem they created is to give more welfare to farmers, placing the burden on the backs of taxpayers.

As the government continues to pass the burden onto others while destroying the food industry, things could very well reach apocalyptic levels.  Nothing will see this country spiral into complete disarray like a lack of food. Alarmingly, scientists have already said that the global food supply system is broken.

To put it simply, government interference in the agriculture industry is responsible for the food crisis we all are about to face.

People need to understand the threat is at their doorstep. It’s not a few years off or a decade away; it’s here now. We are right in the middle of collapse.

The appearance of prosperity means nothing if the fundamentals do not support the optimism. 

The stock market, the greatest false indicator of all time, is on the verge of implosion; and the banking elites are positioning themselves to avoid blame for this implosion while the rest of us are being sold on the most elaborate recovery con-game ever conceived.

This is the age old strategy of Centralization; to remove all choices within a system, by force or manipulation, until the masses think they have nothing left but the choices the elites give them.

Remember, the markets always surge before the crash. We’ve had the surge, so we know what comes next.

The first technology revolution caused World War I. The second technology revolution caused World War II. This is the third technology revolution.

According to the theory of the procession of the equinoxes, the Earth travels (or appears to) through each constellation in the sky approximately every 2160 years. As the Earth enters a new constellation, it is said to be entering a new age and leaving behind an old one. Currently the Earth is in the process of leaving the Age of Pisces and entering the Age of Aquarius. At the beginning of each Age, God (or the Lord of the World) sends a teacher to Earth to prepare and guide humanity for the new age. He is known as the World Teacher (or the Christ, if you prefer to use that term). Simultaneously, as the Christ emerges (or just preceding him), there is another person (or persons) born on the Earth who attempts to oppose the Christ. He is often known as the Anti-Christ (or to Muslims as the Dajjal). 

As predictably as the sun rises and sets, so the four horsemen of the apocalypse continue to march steadily forward unimpeded. This concludes the terrifying fulfillment of prophecies uttered by Jesus Christ over 1,900 years ago but intended most specifically for the time we are living in right now, today.

The entire world is consumed by conflict, and any one of these conflicts could very easily break out into a world war. However, because of Bible prophecy, we know that the war will come from the Euphrates River. 

The Euphrates River begins in Turkey and runs through Syria and Iraq. Those nations are major players in the Middle East upheaval of today and the main stomping grounds of ISIS. There are nearly 400 million Muslims living in the Middle East now. If a multinational war broke out in that area involving Iran, Russia, the U.S., Israel, North African nations, and possibly China – it is not hard to imagine at least 200 million people fighting a bloody war in the Middle East.”

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
— Revelation 6:7-8 NASB

Gog and Magog is a term used often to describe an end times war. The Bible indicates that there will be two different wars with the same name.

Gog and Magog (/ˈɡɒɡ … ˈmeɪɡɒɡ/; Hebrew: גּוֹג וּמָגוֹג Gog u-Magog) appear in the Hebrew Bible as individuals, peoples, or lands. In Ezekiel 38, Gog is an individual and Magog is his land;[1] in Genesis 10 Magog is a man, but no Gog is mentioned; and centuries later Jewish tradition changed Ezekiel’s Gog from Magog into Gog and Magog,[2] which is the form in which they appear in the Book of Revelation, although there they are peoples rather than individuals.

The Scriptures are very clear that Israel is not just one tribe, but rather twelve different tribes of people. Even the modern nation of Israel and the modern Jews do not claim to be descendant from any of the other tribes other than Judah, Benjamin and Levi. Bible scholars agree that there are “10 lost tribes” whose modern identities are known. America is the tribe of Manasseh. The modern nation of Israel is only the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi. The other tribes were carried away captive into western Europe. Denmark is the tribe of Dan. They still call themselves Danmark. The British Commonwealth is the tribe of Ephraim. The House of Judah is the modern nation of Israel. President George Washington as well as many preachers before 1900 knew and taught that America is part of Israel. This knowledge was lost only after the pre-trib rapture fairy tale began to be taught in American churches for the first time in the 1800’s. America (as a nation) is an Israelite tribe.

When the Bible is talking about Israel, it is not talking only about the tribe of Judah known as the Jews. It is talking also about America and Great Britain. Ezekiel 38:8 proclaims that the great multitude of gentile nations including Iran will invade the “mountains” of Israel. That’s plural, not singular. This is of course, prophecy. In prophecy, the word “mountains” refers to nations. Even the Almighty Himself referred to His own Kingdom as a “mountain”. The word “mountains” in Ezekiel 38:8 is referring to all the tribes/nations of Israel, not to only the Jewish tribe that resides in the middle east. In the tiny nation of “Israel” in the middle east, there are really no mountains, only hills, except on the borders of Jordan and Syria.

The Mark of the Beast specifically mentions that nobody will be able to buy or sell unless they agree to worship the Antichrist. And we know what they will be most needing to buy first: food.

You see, the rise of the Antichrist is found at the 5th trumpet (Rev 9). Naturally, this would be right after the 4th trumpet (Rev 8:12) which describes the last of the calamitous effects of the Wormwood rogue planet (named in Rev 8:10). This Wormwood is the next event described in Revelation that has not been fulfilled yet. The destruction caused by Wormwood begins at the 6th seal with eclipses, shooting stars, and a global earthquake so great that every mountain and island is moved out of its place (Rev 6:12-17). It goes on with the first four trumpets bringing meteorite showers, as asteroid strike in the ocean, tsunamis, poisoned fresh waters and a hazy “nuclear winter” style sky (from all the ash and debris thrown up into the stratosphere).

Now you understand how the Antichrist is able to get everyone, even the godless rebels, to submit.

People will be cold, starving, and shell-shocked after the Wormwood-caused disasters. They will need a bailout that includes all the basic necessities of life (much like New Orleans needed after Hurricane Katrina). Unfortunately, when a catastrophe is global and complete, there is nobody who can help that is not also in great need. That help must come from God himself, or someone can pawn themselves off as a close substitute. The Antichrist will appear as God and have the powers to bring security and sustenance to what’s left of the world population.

But we must not forget that as bad as this Wormwood catastrophe sounds, it will apparently be tame in comparison to what the Antichrist will do.

Yet that is assuming the Jews think the Antichrist is Messiah. As we already covered, the Antichrist won’t bother trying to convince people using Bible prophecy that they should accept him. He will come in his own name (whatever name it will be adding up to 666) as God, not as the Messiah of the Jews. The Jews will accept him for the same reason everyone else will: necessity. Once they do, they will be under the Mark of the Beast and deluded into believing God is already here to the point that they would fight to defend his kingdom.

The Bible does not say the Antichrist will be a Jew nor does he have to be a Jew to accomplish anything he is prophesied to do.

Daniel 8 also points to a European Antichrist. It says the “Little Horn” will emerge from a land that is situated so that the Antichrist will have to move southeast in order to take the beautiful land, or Israel (Dan 8:9). Reversing that, it would mean he comes from a land northwest of Israel. If you draw a line northwest from Israel, you go through Greece (where Antiochus Epiphanes came from) and Western Europe, until you end at Great Britain.

Research finds, that even a limited nuclear exchange using 100 Hiroshima sized bombs could create a nuclear winter that kills many crops for several years creating a famine that could kill one or two billion people. 

The third Horseman rides a black horse and is popularly understood to be Famine as the Horseman carries a pair of balances or weighing scales, indicating the way that bread would have been weighed during a famine.[3][21] Other authors interpret the third Horseman as the “Lord as a Law-Giver” holding Scales of Justice.[24] In the passage, it is read that the indicated price of grain is about ten times normal (thus the famine interpretation popularity), with an entire day’s wages (a denarius) buying enough wheat for only one person, or enough of the less nutritious barley for three, so that workers would struggle to feed their families

Lord God: “On that day when my people Israel are living securely, you will rouse yourself and come from your place out of the remotest parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army;”.

“I will start a fire in the land of Magog and along all the seacoasts where people live undisturbed, and everyone will know that I am the Lord.”

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.— Revelation 6:7-8 NASB

The fourth and final Horseman is named Death. Known as “Θάνατος/Thanatos“, of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself explicitly gives a name. Unlike the other three, he is not described carrying a weapon or other object, instead he is followed by Hades (the resting place of the dead). However, illustrations commonly depict him carrying a scythe (like the Grim Reaper), sword,[27] or other implement.

The color of Death’s horse is written as khlōros (χλωρός) in the original Koine Greek,[28] which can mean either green/greenish-yellow or pale/pallid.[29] The color is often translated as “pale”, though “ashen”, “pale green”, and “yellowish green”[21] are other possible interpretations (the Greek word is the root of “chlorophyll” and “chlorine“). Based on uses of the word in ancient Greek medical literature, several scholars suggest that the color reflects the sickly pallor of a corpse.[3][30] In some modern artistic depictions, the horse is distinctly green.[31][32][33]

The Greek word for plague is θανάτῳ, which is a variation of Θάνατος, indicating a connection between the Fourth Horseman and plague.

This fourth, pale horse, was the personification of Death with Hades following him jaws open receiving the victims slain by Death. Its commission was to kill with all of the four judgements of God—with sword, famine, pestilence and wild beasts. The deadly pale and livid appearance displays a hue symptomatic of approaching empire dissolution.

The Four Horsemen are the first in a series of “Seal” judgements. This is when God will judge the Earth, and is giving the World a chance to repent before they die. Continue reading: The Underground Resistance Network

So why should you care? You should care because today, for the first time in human history, we see this alliance forming. 

It’s been centuries since Ezekiel first recorded these prophecies. Yet, this alliance has never existed. And it certainly hasn’t invaded Israel. But today? Today, we see this alliance coming together.

Events from the last few years and months provide some clues as to how it might happen.

Turkish forces are involved in the ongoing conflict in Syria. Turkey supports forces fighting against the Russian and Iranian backed Syrian government. Yet, the Bible says these three nations will be the principal players in an invasion of Israel. What might bring them together? 

One possibility is the transformation of Turkey from a secular democracy to an Islamic theocracy. In July 2016, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan cracked down on his political opponents following what he claimed was a coup attempt. Erdogan imprisoned thousands of citizens and consolidated his grip on power.

Turkey, once hailed as the model of democracy in the Muslim world, is now a dictatorship. And Erdogan, a former member of a banned Islamist political party, has turned away from Turkey’s traditional western allies and cultivated a much more friendly relationship with Russia.

Erdogan’s rise to power threatens to destroy Turkey’s secular government and replace it with an Islamist state. In recent months, strained relations between Turkey and the United States have led to the mutual suspension of non-immigrant visas between the two countries. Turkish bodyguards beat up American protestors in Washington, DC, and a Turkish court convicted a Wall Street Journal reporter. Another reason for Turkey to join the alliance is a mutual hatred of the Kurds. The Kurdish people live primarily in areas of Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. With regional powers focused on stopping ISIS, the Kurds may see an opportunity to declare their independence and establish an independent state. If they try, Turkey and Iran will unite to stop them. After all, such a state will come at the expense of Turkish and Iranian territory.

Regardless of how or why Turkey joins the Gog of Magog alliance, Ezekiel is clear it will.

Ezekiel reveals the Russian leader’s thoughts. Gog says to himself, “I will attack the once abandoned cities now populated with the Jews who returned from exile among the nations” (Ezekiel 38:12).

This tells us Russia and its allies will attack the land when it’s filled with the exiles who return from among the nations. Any idea who these exiles are? That’s right. The target can only be modern day Israel. This means the invasion is coming in our day and time.

Ezekiel stresses this fact again and again when He says the invasion will occur “after Israel’s people have been gathered from among many nations” (Ezekiel 38:8) and “when I bring my people home from among the enemy nations” (Ezekiel 39:27). This return home from among many nations has happened only once in all of human history – modern day Israel.

So it should come as no surprise to see Russia, Iran, Turkey, and the other nations Ezekiel noted gathered on Israel’s northern border, engaged in war and preparing for war.

Jesus is coming!

According to the Bible, it’s only a matter of time before they attack Israel (Ezekiel 38:8-9). And after that, it’s only a matter of time before Jesus returns to establish His everlasting Kingdom (Revelation 22:20).
