Prophecy Clock--US now arming Iranian militias 

The bizarre foreign policy of the United States just keeps getting worse. Bloomberg reports that the US has been inadvertently arming Iranian Islamists who are fighting the Islamic State. This comes on the heels of the occupant of the Oval Office's end-of-2014 proclamation that Iran could become "a very successful regional power" and that he could see the US reopening an embassy there. That the White House is allowing the arming of America's enemies is extremely alarming, but it is nothing new. Since this "president" took office, US tax dollars have been routinely spent on arming Islamic terrorists, likely dating back to before the White House-inspired Arab Spring revolutions in 2010.

Rewind to June 15, 2011, when the White House presented a 38 page report attempting to justify the war in Libya. The "president" made a humanitarian case for offensive military action in Libya. House Speaker John Boehner informed the "president" that he would be in violation of the War Powers Act and the Constitution if the war did not end by June 17. US involvement in the Libyan war continued through October 2011. The "president" claimed that he was within his authority to continue the war without Congressional approval. It was revealed that US tax dollars were used to fund al Qaeda operatives to overthrow the Libyan government--many of those operatives had been fighting against US soldiers in Iraq.

It didn't stop there. The "president" continued funding revolution throughout the Middle East, using the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda as proxies in attempts to overthrow Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, and Syria. The Syrian effort became even more muddled as the White House was once again caught sending US arms to al Qaeda-linked "rebels" to oust the Assad government. Then entered the release of Abu Bakr al-baghdadi from an Iraqi prison and the training of Islamic insurgents in Jordan, who eventually united with Bakr to form the Islamic State (IS). Then the "president" made a big show of "bombing" the IS, but in reality it became stronger and is a stronghold for international terror and barbarism.

Now, Bloomberg reports that Ambassador Jim Jeffrey, the US envoy to Baghdad from 2010-2012, confirmed that the Iraqi government has been transferring US weapons to Iranian Islamists for years. White House spokesman Alistair Baskey said the administration did not "have any reason to believe" such transfers were occurring. Here we have a US "president" arming the enemies of America and of God with impunity. The prophetic impact is enormous as these are the traditional enemies of Israel who are being armed and strengthened by US tax dollars and US leadership. Consequences? In Zechariah 12:9, the Lord says that in that day, "I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." 

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Hello Friends and Readers:  Welcome to the Frozen Tundra of the great U.P. !!  Brrrrrr!  We are freezing up here,  big time !
I just want to be sure of what I write in my blog, with many readers who show interest, and for my own understanding too.   I guess this is a never ending study for me, and most folks say that we will only know it all after we get to heaven, but still, we need to be accurate enough for now.   The simple way to make sure that we are OK, is to be as near to the Lord as possible.  After all, if we are to die for Christ, should we not know Him as best we can?  "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."  ~Philippians 1:21.

Beware this year's horrible Flu bug that is sweeping the nation, and I still have it.  I only THINK that I am starting to get out of the woods,  but I still get dizzy when ever I stand up, am weak, upset stomach, runs, chills and headaches, etc.   I guess my wife has it too, now,  but she is a tough woman and nothing keeps her down.  If one of her kids or her church friends only wriggles their nose or texts her,  she leaps up and comes running for them,  but I am just a 'potted plant' at home... Ha!   I guess I should consider myself blessed just to have a place to sleep in this U.P. super harsh Winter climate, below zero, right now.  The Summer here is what I live for.  

Too,  I PROMISE, that I will try my hardest NEVER to go to the Oscar G. Johnson VAMC again, unless I am dead or unconscious,  because they are just a place for band-aides and insults, as far as I am concerned.   Those folks at the VA up in Iron Mtn., MI., don't even have any surgeons so they transfer and farm everything out to the nearest other civilian hospital about a mile away in I.M., where they do treat you like a human being.   I also give super high marks to the:  Iron County Medical Care Facility, at Crystal Falls, MI.... in the U.P. !!  They are a great Rehab place and Rest Home facility, and the food is even eatable!  
      The VA, as all smart Veterans have predicted, are still stroking and screwing the Vets, not giving them proper care and help, especially while the dirt bag squats in the WH, and he picks multiple Islamic henchmen to head the diverse departments.  Are you all happy with your boy from Africa now?  His color means nothing to me, and I well know that there are better qualified black folks with large, generous, righteous hearts for Christ that could and would do a far better job leading America !   But maybe this is the plan that God has allowed to accomplish His divine purpose.  How else could bible prophecy come true, and the nations BEG for the New World Order, that will ---  YES, WILL-- COME ABOUT SOON ENOUGH ! ?    And the Republicans are no different than the Dims!  Believe it.  
    Friends,  sorry to be so down in the dumps,  but I don't do very well when I am sick and super lonely up in a place without many friends to visit me.   I regret moving up here and should have stayed near my family and friends in the Kenosha area, Wisconsin.   "Trust NO woman."  LOL...   Actually,  trust NO HUMAN BEING.   "And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her, but the sinner shall be taken by her."  ~Ecclesiastes 7:26.    I pay all the bills, 100% and more,  but that is not enough these days, with greed and selfishness rampant, and Satan is surely having a field day with Christian marriages.  Go figure:  2 Corinthians 4:4, says that Satan already has the majority of the world of mankind, under his thumb, but it is the prize bride of Christ that he so wants to tear away from the Lord !!   
    I really like the folks at the TPP [Tea Party Patriots-- web site], and made a good circle of true friends there,  but most of them are still thinking that they can somehow turn things around for America, using political means and actions.   Sorry, guys,  it just won't happen.  We can and must continue to try to slow things down and elect better Conservatives,  but it just isn't in the cards --- according to the Bible.  God's Kingdom cannot,  will not happen on earth until, and only until God Himself erases and destroys the wicked Unbelievers first, and then starts to rebuild, all over again.  And that is exactly what His Word says !  Jeepers!  What is so hard about that, friends ??   When people pray that "Lord's Prayer" at Matthew 6:9, and ask for God's Kingdom to Come...  they really don't understand what they are praying for !    We cannot have God's Kingdom on earth, and also Man's Kingdoms too, at the same time.  What part has evil to do with righteousness and true godly Justice?  
     Too, the USA and Obama are not at war with ISIS!  We are just playing with them now and coddling them, also sending them arms and money !!  Hello !

Well, so much for my rant today.  Stay healthy!

Warm Regards, dear Friends,

Two Groups Of Tribulation Believers, Or One?

Q.  In various answers you’ve spoken of tribulation saints of Rev. 7:9-17 and Rev. 20:4-6.  Are you saying the tribulation martyrs (Rev. 20;4-6) are different then those believers who come out of the great tribulation (Rev. 7:9-17)? Would I be assuming correctly that Rev 7 tribulation people are those who survived through the tribulation and Rev 20 are those who died during the tribulation? If they are the same, then why do you say that the tribulation believers of Revelation 7:9-17 are never called priests?  Are they not called “priests” in Revelation 20:6>

A. I believe that, for the most part, Revelation is meant to be taken chronologically.  That means the tribulation believers who show up in Heaven in Rev. 7:9-17 will have lost their lives before the Great Tribulation begins. Revelation 7 takes pace after the Seal judgments of Rev. 6 but before the Trumpet judgments of Rev. 8-9 begin.  The Great Tribulation begins in Rev. 13 with Satan’s expulsion from Heaven and includes the Bowl judgments of Rev. 16.
The confusion arises from the English translation of Rev. 7:14, “These are they who have come out of the Great Tribulation.”  The English translation makes it sound like they will be martyred during the Great Tribulation, but the Greek word translated “out of” means “out of the time and place” of the Great Tribulation.  In effect, it means before the Great Tribulation begins.
The martyrs of Rev 20:4-6 are described as those who will have been beheaded by the anti-Christ during the Great Tribulation and resurrected after it ends.
Therefore we have the spirits of tribulation believers arriving in heaven before the Great Tribulation begins to serve God in His Temple, but are never called priests. Then we have a group of tribulation believers who will be martyred during the Great Tribulation and resurrected after it ends to reign with the Lord, but aren’t called kings.  By distinguishing them from each other this way, and assigning them different roles,  I think John was saying the two groups are not the same.
