"Is Donald the Last Trump?"

While the rest of us have been puzzling over Trump's hair, U.S. Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford has been worrying about Russia.

"Russia represents the greatest threat to our national security," claims General Dunford.

"In Russia, we have a nuclear power. We have one that not only has the capability to violate the sovereignty of our allies and to do things that are inconsistent with our national interests, but they're in the process of doing so," he cautions.

"So, if you want to talk about a nation that could pose an existential threat to the United States, I'd have to point to Russia. And if you look at their behavior, it's nothing short of alarming," warns not only the General, but many top military officials.

Meanwhile, guess who the Russian government cited as its top threats? The United States and NATO!

General Dunford is in line for the highest U.S. military post: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff--and he is sounding the alarm loud and clear: Russia poses a real threat to the United States.

The Bible also sounds an alarm when it links Russia, Iran (along with a coalition force) against Israel in the last days. (see Ezekiel 38).

Israel feels especially threatened by Iran, given the signing of the recent nuke deal and Teheran's repeated vows to destroy Israel. Add Russia to the mix, and what could go wrong?

(oh, and there really is a last trump coming, but it has nothing to do with our old pal "The Donald").

A wise man once said: "The Iran Nuke deal is worse than we could have imagined--the worst agreement in U.S. diplomatic history." -- Charles Krauthammer, columnist and Fox News analyst

"While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then suddenly destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman and they will not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3

"Judgment of America?"

First, I want to remind you that in the last days there will be scoffers who will laugh at the truth and do every evil thing they desire.

This will be their argument: "Jesus promised to come back, did He?"

"Then where is He? Why, as far back as anyone can remember, everything has remained exactly the same since the world was first created."

They deliberately forget that God made the heavens by the word of His command, and He brought the earth up from the water and surrounded it with water.

The He used the water to destroy the world with a mighty flood.

...The Lord isn't really being slow about His promise to return, as some people think.

No, He is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to perish, so He is giving more time for everyone to repent.

But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief.

Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and everything in them will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be exposed to judgment (2 Peter 3:3-6).

"God's judgment is coming to America and it's going to be ugly," says Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Rev. Billy Graham.

"This past spring, Joel Rosenberg and I taught through the Book of Joel as we led a prophecy seminar...It was my privilege to give the first two messages that covered Joel 1:1 through Joel 2:17. The impact on me was profound.

"Both times, when I stepped off the platform, I knew God had spoken. The messages almost made the hair stand up on the back of my neck," she said. 

"Why? Because God was clearly warning that His judgment is coming on America and on our world and it's going to be ugly. I knew it then, and I know it now," Graham Lotz contends.

"Watch out! Don't let me find you living in careless ease and drunkenness, and filled with the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware, as in a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep a constant watch. And pray that, if possible, you may escape these horrors and stand before the Son of Man" (Luke 21:34-36).
"Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly and turn to Me again. Unless you do, I will come upon you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief" (Revelation 3:3).

"Mega-Disaster Predicted"

The New Yorker is scaring the daylights out of West Coast readers this week with their terrifying story, "The Really Big One."

The subtitle? "An earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest. The question is when."

According to seismologists: "The next full-margin rupture of the Cascadia subduction zone will spell the worst natural disaster in the history of the continent."

While everyone's heard of the San Andreas fault line (capable of a powerful 8.2), few have ever heard of the Cascadia subduction zone.

If San Andreas = the "Big One"
The Cascadia subduction zone = Mega-Quake Plus

Plus what, you ask?

Because of its size and location (700 miles long and off the coast of the Pacific Northwest) and the fact that  it's a subduction fault line  (with one tectonic plate sliding underneath another), an 8.7 - 9.2 mega-quake is possible.

Oh, and the Plus? The "seven-hundred mile liquid wall that will reach the Northwest coast, on average, fifteen minutes after the earthquake begins," says The New Yorker.

"By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region (from Northern California to Canada) will be unrecognizable."

So when will all this happen? Seismolegists contend this fault line rips roughly every 240 years (give or take). The last one happened 300 years ago. That puts us 60 years over due.

A wise man once said: "The Bible predicts a wide variety of cosmic and natural events will occur to signal the end times. Great earthquakes are only one of the many 'birthpains' we should expect." -- Andrew Hill, Ph.D

"Then there came flashes of lightening, rumbling peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake." Revelation 16:18

"'Messiah's Arrival 'Imminent' Predicts Rabbi"

Apparently, there's a growing excitement in Israel (as well as the global Jewish community) that "Meshiach is at the door."

Torah law expert, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky is the source of all the hoopla.

His advice? "Gather your family and come to Israel..." because the Messiah will be "arriving very soon."

Since last summer, the Rabbi has been spreading this message of 'imminent arrival' and, according to some, it's all he talks about these days. what?

Rabbi Kanievsky is one of the most respected rabbinic leaders in Orthodox Judaism. He is revered and cherished throughout the Jewish world. His mind is encyclopedic and every week he receives literally hundreds of queries from every corner of the globe on every topic under the sun. He is considered by most in the Jewish ultra-religious world to be a Talmudic phenomenon and this generation's greatest scholar. People globally seek his advice.

In other words, when he speaks, people listen.

But does that make his assertion that "Meschiach is at the door" true?

Certainly not. But current world conditions may.

A wise man once said: "In an effort to satisfy man's age-old curiosity about the future, modern-day prophets are everywhere. But there are authentic prophetic voices that have been overlooked--the ancient seers of Israel, the Hebrew prophets found in the Scripture. To ignore their incredible predictions of man's destiny and the events which are soon to effect this planet will be perhaps the greatest folly of this generation." --Hal Lindsey, author

"Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place."  Matthew 24: 32-34

"When Cash Becomes Illegal"

Denmark is considering passing a new law that could be the first step toward a cashless society.

"The Danish Proposal", according to The Telegraph, "sounds innocuous enough on the surface--it would simply allow shops to refuse payments in cash and insist that customers use contactless debit cards or some other means of electronic payment."

The goal? Theoretically, to ease "administrative and financial burdens."

No big deal, right?

Don't tell that to Norwegian academic Trond Andresen. In an article for real-world economics review, Andresen has developed the Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), a concept for going completely cashless worldwide.

Andresen's paper suggests:

  • abolishing all physical currencies
  • abolishing all "normal" bank accounts
  • using only electronic "money"
  • allowing for only government-controlled banking
Far-fetched? Not according to Andresen's Modern Monetary Theory:
"In a recession or even depression-like situation--the case in most countries today--the attraction of MMT is obvious: since a government with own-issued currency is not financially constrained, such a crisis can be remedied by running arbitrarily high fiscal deficits as long as needed, i.e. spending extra money into the economy to employ people and buy goods and services. A government issuing its own currency can always employ all the unemployed."
In other words, the sky's the limit.

MMT also allows:

  • control over inflation/deflation
  • redistribution of wealth
  • elimination of tax evasion
  • theft and many other crimes
  • an end to the "boom & bust" cycles
"In a depressive situation people will gratefully accept this," predicts Andresen.

And he's probably right. His Modern Monetary Theory has gotten the attention of global leaders desperate to solve financial woes that have become epic.

Debt-riddled Greece, Puerto Rico, Italy, (all on the verge of default), are only the tip of the iceberg. Asian, European and U.S. debt are at historic highs.

According to the Financial Stability Board, the entire world financial system is in deep, deep trouble.

And guess what gang? That's exactly what we should expect if we are living in the end-times.

A wise man once said: "We need to take care that we do not become lax in our thinking--God has set a day which will mark the end of this world as we know it. This should prompt us to encourage others to repent and believe in Christ."--Len Woods, Th.M.

"Just so, when you see the events I've described beginning to happen, you can know His return is very near, right at the door."  Matthew 24:33
