17 December 2014: Is Recent History a Primer to the Literal Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?
Fast forward to 1991 when after four decades of the so-called Cold War (it was anything but cold) the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics dissolved and ceased to exist due to unrelenting economic stagnation and political collapse that had been building over the previous decade. A following a very brief civil war/coup d'etat an independent Russian Federation was created. Now after 23 years the Russian Federation is itself on the verge of total economic and political collapse. One day ago the Russian Federation's currency collapsed leaving President Vladimir Putin and his ruling oligarchs with a national crisis they almost certainly will blame the West for due to its imposition of economic sanctions and the effect of American oil shale on the global market which has collapsed oil prices. Half of Russia's economy depends on oil.
Those founding fathers in the Congress of the 13 original united States wrote and individually signed their fifty-six names to the Declaration of Independence stating that that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." They then crafted and ratified the Constitution to enumerate the powers of three co-equal branches of human governance and reserved those powers not enumerated to the States or to the people. When blatant and ongoing usurpation of the enumerated and non-enumerated powers occurs via executive fiat and memorandum that is called lawlessness, and lawlessness is against the consent of the governed and therefore it is also against God. And here we sit in near total silence. Has our national motto become "In Lies We Trust"?
Most of us awoke to the horror of the Taliban jihadist assault in Pakistan on Tuesday, 16 December. Over 140 people, the vast majority children between the ages of 12 and 16 were gunned down or blown up or burned to death in school. Why do I mention this here? because this is precisely the type of attack the jihadists have long promised (for the better part of ten years now) to bring into one or more American elementary schools. There was the school massacre in Beslan, Russia, and now in Peshawar, Pakistan. Sometown, USA will be next. It's a near certainty as the U.S. becomes more lawless and more like a third-world country with every day that passes because we are allowing it to happen across our lawless borders which are undefended by a lawless federal government.
Another item that doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves is the insane amount of deadly radiation that continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean from the several crippled Japanese nuclear reactors at Fukushima. Beta radiation levels are reportedly upwards of 50,000% higher than what they were one year ago, or even just a few months ago this past summer. The great ocean conveyor current and prevailing westerly winds have raised radiation levels in the continental United States to very unsafe levels, and not just along the US West Coast. Locations such as Phoenix and Tucson Arizona where beta radiation levels at 10 and 21 times government safe standards are comparable to levels in Chicago, Illinois; Montgomery, Alabama and Madison, Wisconsin where the greatly exceed the 1000 beta radiation CPM (counts per minute) which Uncle Sam knows very well to be a serious health issue. Or in the city of my birth, San Diego, beta radiation levels are now 60 times higher than they were one year ago. What you don't know about, or can't see, can kill you... slowly. You can read all of this and more yourself at the EnviroReporter.com website. The good news, if it can be called that, is Fukushima and these current beta radiation levels are not even close to what will occur at the Second and Third Trumpets of Revelation 8, but it would appear that we're getting a slight foretaste of of those events.
