Jesus, the One and only Savior of this world, gave His followers instructions for the last days. He said: “WATCH therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come” (Matthew 24: 42). It is recorded slightly different elsewhere: “WATCH you therefore; for you know not when the master of the house comes, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto ALL, WATCH” (Mark 13: 35-37). The words of our Savior are expressed yet differently in a third place: “WATCH you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21: 36).
Jesus gave signs or trends signaling that we are living in the last days. One of those activities would be happening in the Middle East. The world would be focused upon that region. Why? OIL!!! The very first Newswatch Magazine, published in August 1980, had the lead article entitled “Iran Watch” which discussed oil as being the magnet that would draw the industrialized world into that region. Industry would be shut down without oil, energy, to keep the production lines moving. Travel would come to a screaming halt without oil. The modern industrialized world would cease to function as we know it without oil for energy.
In Matthew 24: 15 Jesus mentions the Middle East. “When you therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:)” The abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel was when a foreign army came to Jerusalem in 168 B.C. and placed a statue of their pagan god in the temple and offered swine’s blood [an unclean animal] on the altar. Jesus stated a similar event would occur at the close of this age just before He returns to establish His kingdom. Something must draw worldwide attention to the region. It has – oil!
Iran recently sent a ship close to an American battleship, but withdrew. This could have provoked the United States to invade Iran. An invasion is exactly what the powers that be in Washington, D.C. want. Nearly all the current administration is in the oil business.
Pakistan witnessed the killing of a very popular woman political figure that had been in exile but returned. This, too, is tugging at the war machinery of the U.S. to intervene to stabilize the region. There is a vast difference in the political ideology of the U.S. and the Muslim world. This vast difference plus the thirst for oil by the West could bring the world to the brink of destruction. The constant meddling in Middle Eastern affairs, especially by the U.S., has turned the Islamic world against America. We are trying to impose a form of government upon them that is foreign to them.
The stage is being set for a huge war that will fulfill Bible prophecy. Notice Luke 21: 20: “And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed [surrounded] with armies, then KNOW that the desolation thereof is near.” What does it mean compassed, or surrounded, by armies? Whose armies? It is certainly not the Israelis! They are the ones being surrounded! Could a threat from other than the Arab world cause nations to scramble for a “peace treaty?”
It certainly seems like the U.S. is moving to conquer the oil producing countries in the Middle East. This would obviously become a threat to Communist Russia and China if they were cut off from access to crude oil. The Illuminati, founders of Communism, said the third world war would begin with the differences between the Jews and Arabs. Have we seen these differences keep the Middle East in conflict since 1948 when the Jews were given a homeland?
When the U.S. thinks they have secured the Middle East under its control, look what the prophet Daniel wrote: “But tidings [news] out of the east [Communist China] and out of the north [Communist Russia] shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make [sweep] away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him” (Chapter 11: 44-45).
Is it just a coincidence that President Putin of Russia has returned to being a hard-line dictator again? Is it just a coincidence that Russia is building their military once again with new, more sophisticated weapons? Is it just a coincidence that Communist China received from the Clinton and current Bush Administration blueprints for much of our most advanced technology? Why should the U.S. government get mad at China for using the technology WE transferred to them to prove they could shoot down a satellite? The U.S. uses satellites for communications and for our military. If these satellites are rendered ineffective, we will be the losers!!!
Of course, those in our government working for a one-world-government could care less about the lives being lost because of their schemes. Our leaders are only following orders handed down to them by their masters – the Illuminati!!! The Illuminati worship Lucifer or Satan. Herein lies the power for the rise and success of their plans for fomenting wars to achieve their ultimate goal. Lucifer/Satan wants to be worshipped by all of mankind. From the rubble and dust of the Middle East will come this world’s counterfeit savior! He will: “Who opposes and exalts himself above ALL that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he IS God” (2 Thessalonians 2: 4).
There is purpose to all the madness we see around us. There is a spiritual battle for control of the world and mankind. However, Jesus has “all power.”
