The Washington Free Beacon: “Khamenei, who rose to power as Iran’s second supreme leader in 1989, was in the hospital last week to undergo prostate surgery.

The well-publicized surgery—coupled with 2010 U.S. diplomatic cables stating that Khamenei has terminal cancer—suggests that the regime is “preparing the nation and the world for a transition to a third supreme leader,” according to a report released by the global intelligence giant Stratfor.

With Khamenei’s health in question, longtime regime insiders appear to already be paving the way for him to be replaced with an equally extremist and hardline ruler who would enter the political fray at perhaps the most significant time in Iran’s history.”

Zero Hedge: “The suppression of gold prices is essential at all costs to the Anglo-American banking interests. The saber rattling and attempts to lure Russia and China into military conflict are about who controls the financial world.”

Opinion: It has been a curious phenomenon to me seeing gold and silver prices decline over the past 3 years, while the central banks of the US, Japan, and more recently the EU, print new (fiat) money to escape a never-ending financial crisis.

Typically, adding counterfeit money to any economy will devalue existing money, causing inflation and the price of precious metals and interest rates to rise.

In an effort to keep interest rates low, central bankers have created trillions in new money to buy massive amounts of bonds that have held interest rates down while negative counter-effects have been muted.

My (Conspiracy) Theory: Suppose that at the same time they have been buying up bonds, central banks sold short massive amounts of gold to keep the price from rising out of control. (sold gold contracts they don’t own with the intention of buying it back in the future).

Rising gold prices are clear evidence of a paper money problem and potential collapse. By suppressing gold, financial markets would be fooled into complacency that the Central Bank plan of money-printing was actually a good thing and that it would eventually solve the financial crisis.

The US dollar would then rise (which it just did) and the world reserve currency and global economy would stablize.

Fact: Russia and China, seizing an opportunity to buy precious metals cheep and weaken the US superpower, began buying gold quietly as evidenced by the charts above and below.

In the fiction chapter of our  book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek, we theorized a move by Russia and China to dethrone the US dollar and replace it with the renminbi as part of a basket of currencies:

Excerpt: “As the top-secret meeting got under way, John Brennan had disturbing news to share. He informed the group that there was urgent intel from our people on the ground in the Far East. China was about to make a move with support from Japan, Russia, and the European Union to dump the dollar as the world reserve currency.

They planned to institute the renminbi, either alone or as part of a basket of currencies called Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), which would include the euro and the yen. Brennan told the cabinet that China had been buying large amounts of gold for the past five years in an effort to build global confidence in the Chinese currency. Their aim was to make the renminbi the de facto reserve currency and to increase global influence.”

Disclaimer: This theory is in no way an encouragement to go out and buy gold. If I am correct, there is no way to know when central bankers will buy-in their short positions.

The Blaze: Why ‘Killing Jews Is Worship’ … Ad Got Nixed.

Anti-Islamic ads will begin appearing on 100 New York City buses as well as two subway entrances next week, the Associated Press reported. One of the six approved ads shows an image of beheaded American journalist James Foley next to his killer:

The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative run by blogger Pamela Geller. The campaign highlights points about Islam ignored by government and media, she told the AP.

Opinion: The partnership between the government and mainstream media is not likely to change. In Tim LaHaye’s blockbuster bestseller ‘Left Behind’, Nicolae Carpathia’s (Antichrist) first order of business was control of media.

Killing Jews has been the goal of Arab peoples since Abraham. Knowing that the Christ would come from bloodline of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Satan used two of Abraham’s progeny to try to stop Messiah from saving His people.

Of Ishmael: “He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren (Jews) Genesis 16:12.

Of Esau: “So Esau (Edom) hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, “The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob (Israel)” Genesis 27:41.

Russia's President Putin and his Egyptian counterpart Sisi attend a welcoming ceremony onboard guided missile cruiser Moskva at SochiStratrisks: “Russia and Egypt have reached a preliminary deal for Cairo to buy arms worth $3.5 billion from Moscow, Interfax news agency quoted the head of a Russian state arms agency as saying on Wednesday.

Speaking during an arms trade exhibition in South Africa, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, did not give further details.

Russia, the world’s second-largest arms exporter, has sought to boost its military ties with Egypt after relations between Cairo and its long-standing ally Washington soured, causing some defense cooperation between the two countries to be frozen.”

Opinion: The great uniter who would ‘calm the oceans and heal the planet’, blew a 30-year relationship with Egypt to smithereens.

It began with an invitation to the June 2009 Cairo speech. The Muslim Brotherhood, parent organization to Hamas, al Qaeda, and Islamic Jihad was front-row center by invitation of America’s new president Barack Obama.

By February 2011, the Middle East was in flames. The Arab Spring gave the US president the opportunity to dump Hosni Mubarak and his 30 year relationship with Israel, and install the Muslim Brotherhood as president of Egypt.

Department of National Intelligence James Clapper told the American people that the Brotherhood eschewed violence. The US State Dept., headed by Hillary Clinton, bestowed 1.5 billion dollars, Abrahams tanks, and F15 fighter jets with absolutely no strings attached.

Nice.

Corruption and mayhem followed, until the Egyptian military headed by General Al-Sisi intervened and executed thousands of members and locked up the Brotherhood senior officials to stand trial.

Now the relationship with the largest Muslim state in the world is fractured and Al-Sisi is in league with Russia and, by extension, China.

Not coincidentally, all three nations: Russia, Egypt and China represent the three kings who will meet to do battle in the campaign of Armageddon against the Beast army of Antichrist.

thousands-of-syrian-kurds-enter-turkey-fleeing-islamic-state-advance-2014-9

Business Insider: Tens of thousands of Syrian Kurds have crossed into Turkey over the past day, fleeing an advance by fighters affiliated with the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) who have seized dozens of villages close to the border, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Saturday.

Turkey opened a stretch of the frontier on Friday after Kurdish civilians fled their homes, fearing an imminent attack on the border town of Ayn al-Arab, known as Kobani in Kurdish.

“Around 45,000 Syrian Kurds have crossed the border as of now from eight entrance points along a 30-km distance from Akcakale to Mursitpinar since we opened the border yesterday,” Kurtulmus told CNN Turk television.

Opinion: (Encyclopedia of the nations) “The population of Syria was estimated at 16,305,659 in July 2000, an increase of 3.4 percent from the 1990 population of 12,116,000. In addition, there are about 38,200 people living in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights (excluding nearly 20,000 Israeli settlers). Syria has one of the highest population growth rates in the world. Over the last decade, however, Syria’s population growth rate has gradually decreased from 3.30 percent in 1990 to approximately 2.58 percent in 2000. Despite the steady decline in its growth rate, the population is expected to reach 20.9 million by the year 2010.”

The population of Damascus, Syria’s second largest city, was 2.6 million people in 2004. Today, despite Syria’s 3.4% growth rate, the population of Damascus has dropped to approximately 1.7 million.

  • From a secular view: civil war and the emergence of the Sunni terror group ISIS would suffice to explain a drop in population
  • From a Biblical view: the drop in population of Damascus is God removing people before the fulfillment of prophecy

We know from Isaiah 17 that Damascus is prophesied to be destroyed in one night. Skeptics argue that the prophecy was fulfilled in 732 BC when the city was partially destroyed by the Arameans.

When comparing fulfilled prophecy, it is obvious that every detail is fulfilled. Example Isaiah 66:7-8 prophesied that Israel’s rebirth would take place in one day – which is precisely what happened at 5 PM on May 14, 1948.

We know that Damascus has never been completely destroyed. A simple Google search shows the city as one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.

Isaiah 17:1,14 says that Damascus will be a ruinous heap. In the evening there is terror, and in the morning it is gone.

The only thing we don’t know for sure is when.

israels-exodus-from-egypt-and-entry-into-canaan

Today we look at the Book of the Wars of the LORD. Bible scholars’ research leads some of them to declare that this book is the same as the Book of Jasher. Others maintain that it is altogether a different book.

Truly, it does not affect our salvation one way or another which opinion is correct. We are following their train of thought only to enhance our knowledge of ancient (non-mystical) Hebrew texts, which can shed more light on the glory and the authority of our GOD.

GOD is love, and GOD is also just. He has warred with evil humanity in the past, and He will do so in the end times.

Arutz Sheva: “French President Francois Hollande said on Friday that a “solution to the conflict” between the Israelis and Palestinian Arabs will be put to the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

“We will have a resolution, to be presented to the Security Council, that will say very clearly what we expect from the (peace) process and what the solution to the conflict must be,” Hollande told reporters in a joint news conference with Abbas.

Abbas, who is trying to build support ahead of a new Palestinian Arab diplomatic push within the United Nations, said that France could give impetus to an Arab League-backed plan calling for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria.”

Opinion: Hollande’s meeting with the illegitimate president of a mythical people would be laughable if it were not tragic.

The president of France is in violation of God’s word (Genesis 12:3), and both he and his nation will be held accountable (Joel 3:1-2) for dividing God’s land.

Abbas wants Jerusalem as does Hamas, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood terror groups. They want it because that is precisely where Zechariah 14:4 says that Jesus Christ will return, and it is the place where He will build His Temple (Daniel 9:27, Ezekiel 40, Matthew 25:15-16) and rule in peace for 1000 years (Revelation 20:1-2).

But first there will be a time of tribulation (Jeremiah 30:7) when God will turn His attention to the redemption of the Jews and “correct His people in justice” Jeremiah 30:11.
