Oct 30,2010 Election of Nov2, 2010 Turning Point for the World

Our Nov 2, 2010 election is extremely important. Not from the political point of view but from a spiritual perspective.

Two years ago this Nation turn on itself and elected a president that I believe will destroy this world. In my blog I have documented more that amply the dark spiritual nature of this man.

On this election, the nation has a choice of keeping the total political power that he now enjoys or clipping his wings so that he is left without a significant support base in this country.

If he is the Antichrist as I believe he is, this will be only a hindrance that will force his hand sooner that he wanted.

How do you keep power when you have lost it at the urns, by going into a gigantic war the likes of which the world has not seen. He knows the scripture and he knows that the rider of the white horse of Revelation is given a crown and the command to go out to conquer. He was also given a bow.

Very soon we shall see!

President Obama: “USA to LEAD the WORLD in the NEW WORLD ORDER”

Friday, October 29, 2010


Historical elections are just around the corner here in America. The outcome of these elections will determine among things, whether we will continue down the path of pro infanticide and pro homosexuality, which are both abominations to God or if we will choose to set America back on a path of righteousness and favor with God.

If you truly belong to the risen Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, your vote will prove it. If you vote for those who stand for the murder of innocent babies then you belong not to Christ, but to Baal, upon whose altars multitudes of children were sacrificed.

Satan has slyly revamped his tactics and has cleverly succeeded by luring modern day humans into once again sacrificing their children; but this time they are sacrificed on the altars of selfishness; guised as a “woman’s choice”.

Also in direct oppositon to God is America’s wavering/declining support of Israel. In His Word, God warned the nations that they would either reap blessings for standing with Israel or curses for opposing Israel:

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed

The current administration does not even try to disguise its disdain for God’s chosen ones of Israel. Obama steadfastly attempts to forcefully give Israel’s Covenant land and God’s holy city of Jerusalem away to those to whom it does not belong.

If America does not stand for Israel, then we will bear the brunt of and deserve God’s judgment. As American citizens we need to vote for those who WILL stand for the nation of Israel.
If we fail to stand for Israel and for righteousness, then America will be judged.
God’s holiness and righteousness demands justice. Most eschatologists (Bible prophecy scholars) agree that America does not appear in last days prophecies; perhaps it is because America does not repent and also no longer is a true ally of Israel.
The “social justice” that the liberals are striving to promote is just a method by the enemy to kill, steal and destroy.
In reality, all that the “powers that be” actually desire to accomplish is for all of the American populace to be on level playing field, with all citizens dependent on the government and thereby powerless to stand up for their rights.

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy..
Obamacare is a prime method of removing our freedoms. It will result in rationing of care due to the sheer, simple realization of the concept of supply versus demand. There are not enough health care providers and facilities to take care of the influx of millions of more patients.

For all the terrifying details behind the evil that is Obamacare please see this video which dissects the massive law page by page:

On top of the horrors of Obamacare, add the left’s aspiration of legislating the malevolent Cap and Trade Bill. According to Obama, under his desired Cap and Trade, “electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket”.
Please see the linked video wherein Obama admits this outlandish truth which would be the straw that breaks the back of the struggling American economy as well as of the majority of Americans who just trying to stay afloat.

These legislative atrocities are just attempts to legislate America to where she is no longer land of the free; where the citizenry will be strangled by the leadership as occurs in any socialist nation or dictatorship.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” ~Thomas Jefferson
Noteworthy is the fact that not once, but TWICE in the past several weeks Obama has omitted the important words, “endowed by their Creator” when paraphrasing the Declaration of Independence.
Realizing the fact that the president majored in Constitutional law and would therefore know all of our founding documents backwards and forwards proves that this is deliberate.
This was a calculated attempt  to not only remove God out of America, but to also shift the fact that our freedoms are from God over to their goal; wherein our freedoms are dictated and given by the government.

This soon coming election will decide not just America’s future but will determine our very survival as a free nation.

We all need to be cognizant of all that weighs in the balance with this historical election and to exercise our right to vote while the freedom to do so still remains…

Oct 30, 2010 Health Care Bill Hidden Agenda of Totalitarian Control

This post is about the new Health Care Reform bill and the many nefarious and evil things that have been included in this bill.



Obamacare: Barry Gets His Private Army (Ready Reserve Corps)(Updated)

Written on March 25, 2010 by LogisticsMonster in The Daily Crime


(See Update At End Of Post)

I know it is impossible to forget Nancy Pelosi saying “We have to pass this bill to find out what is in it”, and now that we are able to finally read it, some very interesting facts are coming to light.  After reading the section below will there be any more arguments about repealing this fascist runner-up to the Patriot Act?

Ready? Read it all.

Secret Muslim President Uses Health Care Reform Bill to Discriminate Against Christians

by Joseph on April 5, 2010 · View Comments

And here I was thinking we put the whole Obama-is-a-secret-Muslim thing behind us months ago.

I guess I was wrong.

I just got an email titled “Muslims Get to OPT OUT of ObamaC*are!”

Notice the little asterisk after the C that is supposed to look like a crescent and star? Cute. It goes well with the attached image:

The email was from one Lawrence A. Hunter, President of the Social Security Institute.

According to their missing mission statement, the SSI is “a national, 501(c)(4) non-profit, non-partisan seniors? advocacy organization.”

It looks like somewhere along the way they lost focus on their mission, morphing into a highly-partisan adversary of President Obama’s Health Care Reform initiative, hell bent on promoting fear and anger against the bill and the president through any means necessary including accusing President Obanma, yet again, of being a secret muslim who is using his stolen power to push for Sharia Law in the US and to discriminate against helpless Jewish and Christian Americans.

I did a quick search for Larry.

Here’s his contact info…

Lawrence A. Hunter, Ph.D
(540) 349 2360

He certainly does come with a good set of right-wing credentials. Not only does he have nine kids, like every good wingnut should, but he’s also the former and/or current member of multiple Dick Armey-related groups including FreedomWorks, “the Wall Street front group that helped launch the Tea Party Movement.”

And I’d expect nothing less from a guy who sent me an email claiming:

  • “ObamaCare discriminates against Christians and Jews by denying them special exemptions extended to other religions.”
  • The health care bill is a “theft committed by rouge politicians under the color of law with the threat of violence for non-compliance.”
  • “ObamaCare holds Sharia Law?s prohibition against gambling above the law of the land”
  • The bill is “the single biggest act of discrimination enacted under the color of law since Jim Crow Laws”

Larry’s only purpose here is incite anger and hatred – if not outright violence – toward our duly elected President and members of Congress by stirring up religous bigotry and intollerance, drawing on the old “Obama is a secret Muslim” lie that no rational person ever believed in the first place.

It’s nasty. It’s dangerous. And, most importantly, it’s all a load of shit.

The entire premise of his argument is that Obama inserted language into the health care bill to allow his Muslim brothers to opt out of the insurance mandate.

But the bill (text here) provides exactly the same exemptions for the health care insurance mandate that are currently used for social security in the existing tax code (text here. Exactly the same, except for one small thing.

The only change the new health care bill makes is to add an exemption for Christian organizations called health care sharing ministries. According to their website, sharing ministries are “founded on the biblical mandate of believers to share each other?s needs” with a goal to “apply Galatians 6:2, ‘Bear one another?s burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ’”.

Do you need me to wrap this one up for you?

Larry Hunter is lying, radical, right-wing fucktard.

The end.

Forwarded email claims U.S. health care legislation passed in 2010 specifically exempts Muslims from the government mandate to purchase insurance and calls this an instance of ‘Dhimmitude.’

Description: Forwarded email
Circulating since: April 2010
Status: False

Email text contributed by Rick C., Apr. 14, 2010:

Subject: Dhimmitude

Word of the Day: Dhimmitude

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.

The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient. So I, Ann Barnhardt, a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the Muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. “Sure, I’ll be a Muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, bro?”

I recommend sending this post to your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it – quickly.

Jovial (29 Oct 2010) “The ALEF and the TAV and the Hebrew word “ET” / “IT””

I posted a video a while back about the first and last letters in the Hebrew alphabet and here is a very good explanation to that interpretation.


Jovial (29 Oct 2010)
The ALEF and the TAV and the Hebrew word “ET” / “IT”


There’s been some discussion on the Video Jim posted about the ALEF and the TAV.  This word is NOT untranslatable and does NOT appear only in a few arbitrary and unexplanainable places.  It is in over 600 verses from Genesis to Malachi, and has a very well understood meaning.  Sometimes it is translated as “with”.  It could also be translated as “it”, and that is the most common meaning.  For example, Genesis 1:1 reads like this….

בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.
1 In the beginning God created it; the heavens.  And it; the earth.
In English, this sounds like an overuse of the word “it”, so normally this is not translated as “God created IT; the heavens” but simple as “God created the heavens”.  But in Hebrew, it does NOT sound like an overuse of “it”, but very normal , because Hebrew grammar DEMANDS that any definite object in a sentence be introduced with the word “it” (אֵת).
In the Bahir, it analyzes this verse and states that if you leave out the word “it” (אֵת), the sentence would sound as if you are saying that God IS the heavens and the earth, and that is why the word “it” (אֵת) is needed here.
Does this word have some sort of spiritual meaning?  Well, if you see some spiritual meaning in God saying He is “it” , yeah.  And some meaning in the fact it is spelled with the first and last letters of the alphabet, yes.  But the word is not void of a literal meaning and does indeed contribute to our understanding of the meaning of hte sentence in Hebrew thought.  The video that got posted made it sound like this word is arbitrary and purely spiritual in nature, and if you see it, it must refer to Yeshua.  But here, it refers to what He created, not Him.  So no, every use of the word “it” (אֵת) in Hebrew does not refer to Him.  The analysis in that video is a good example of the phrase learning enough to be dangerous.  It really does not accurately represent how this word is used in Hebrew.  It is very common, and generally used to introduce the direct object of a sentence.

October 28,2010 The coming Fall Feasts of Israel in November

Gina let us hope you are right for the seasons and the dates that have been given


Gina McCray (28 Oct 2010)
RE: Daniel Matson, Robert Rose, BG Ellis  -NOVEMBER 8th correlating to be the Rapture!


As you mentioned,  November 8, 2010 would have to be the “the drop dead date if seven 360-day years are to fit within the 70 years since the rebirth of Israel or 100 years since events from the First World War.”
This date correlates with the coming new moon (per NASA) as it is the first day of  the month of Kislev on the modern day Jewish calendar.
Robert Rose had noted  that Rosh Hashanah may actually be off by 2 months and may have not yet occurred and may actually occur at the sighting of the new moon in November:
Robert Rose (8 Oct 2010)

“Noah, Correct Feasts and Seasons”

“I firmly believe the tribulation will occur in November.

Here’s a fact if you study Jewish history.

Our ancient fathers used to look to the sky to see where the sun and moon were in relation to the fixed stars, in order to know what month they were in.

Aries is the first month of Nisan and the symbol is the RAM or passover ram/lamb. The ancients always started the first month in Aries to kill the passover lamb during this time when the sun was in Aries.

Libra is the 7th Month Tirshri and is the symbol of Judgment or Righteous Justice.

The equinox used to start in Aries, but because the “Precession of the Equinox’s” they drift back through time and now they start in Pisces.

Stars are the only heavenly bodies that are fixed. The Sun, Moon, Equinox’s, Solstice’s and Planets move all over the ecliptic and are not fixed. You HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS FIXED IN ORDER TO HAVE A REFERENCE POINT in the heavens.

Since the sun was in Aries when our ancient fathers started Nisan on the New Moon and the Sun was in Libra during the 7th Month new moon and the stars are fixed unlike everything else….

I don’t see why we shouldn’t be celebrating the appointed feasts of the LORD in their proper season.

The book of Jubilees says how to identify the seasons according to GOD:

The new moon of the 1st month, the new moon on the 4th month, the new moon of the 7th month and the new moon on the 10th month are the days of remembrance, and the days of the seasons in the 4 divisions of the year.

Notice it doesn’t say “equinox” or “Solstice” above to divide the year. This is because Satan has introduced “Tropical Astrology” just recently. Tropical Astrology doesn’t take the stars into account. It’s just a Sun/Earth Relationship……(equinox’s and Solstic’s) PAGAN…..which have no fixed position in the heavens for a point of reference.

It goes on the say: “These are written and ordained as a testimony forever. And Noah ordained them for himself as feasts for the generations forever, so that they have become thereby a memorial unto him.

And on the New Moon of the 1st month he was bidden to make for himself an ark, and on that day the earth became dry and he opened the ark and saw the earth.

And on the New Moon of the 4th Month the mouths of the depths of the abysses beneath were closed.

And on the New Moon of the 7th month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened and the waters began to descend into them.

And on the New Moon of the 10th Month the tops of the mountains were seen, and Noah was glad.

And on this account he ordained them for himself as feasts for a memorial forever, and thus are they ordained. And they placed them on the heavenly tables.”

Again, our ancient fathers never used the “Equinox’s” or “solstice’s” to figure out the 4 seasons or 4 divisions in the year.

The month started according to the fixed stars in the heavens when the sun and New Moon was in Aries (RAM/Passover Lamb).

The Equinox’s and Solstice’s are not in a fixed position and float back through the stars (constellations).

Why shouldn’t we celebrate the Lord’s feasts on the same time our ancient fathers did? The stars are fixed! Satan cannot tamper with them! But he can give us a New Jewish “Hillel” calendar and a “Gregorian” or “Julian calendar”, and everyone will accept that and swallow the lie.

Based on all this, the corrected dates are….

2010 Nisan = May New Moon
2010 Tishri = November New Moon (Rosh Hashanah)!

2017 Nisan = April New Moon
2017 Tishri = October New Moon

Again, the 4 seasons in the year are observed according to the New Moon on the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th Month.

Man’s seasons begin according to the Sun and Equinox instead of the GOD’s explanation above.

Man currently looks to flawed calendars that never existed in antiquity to observe the LORD’s feasts, thereby being in error by their own ignorance.

Research and truth will set you free. Exercise discernment. Pray for Discernment.”

BG Ellis notes on
“…of the week that Rosh Hashanah starts, on a Monday night – November 8th (Tuesday night by Jewish time keeping), the night that a Jewish Groom comes for His Bride back in Jesus’ time!
Also, the CERN experiment, that has the potential of ripping this planet apart starts on: November 11th!
IF there is a USA election, Israel never attacks before the election.  They have always waited 1 week after a major US election to attack.  One week after the elections brings us to: November 11th! Doves, there is your 7-day warning.”
The Arabs have given Obama until November 8th to get the “peace process” rolling. If it is still dead in the water will they start the Psalm 83 War? I am convinced that  the Psalm 83 War may be short (days)and culminate with the revealing of the antichrist as per this entry:
According to the preceding entry, once we see the Psalm 83 War erupt, we know our redemption draweth nigh!
Here in Alabama we haven’t had any really true “fall feeling” days yet. Perhaps, that is because it is not officially Fall yet. Perhaps, Rosh Hashanah is actually coming the new moon this November.
As we know, Rosh Hashanah is a prime candidate for the Rapture for multitudinous reasons outlined here:
Here are some additional reasons why Fall 2010 appears to be the start time of the 7 year Tribulation and subsequently should be the Rapture if Lord willing, it is pre-Trib:

Blessings to all as we approach the Blessed Hope!

FM Riley (28 Oct 2010) “Chronological Order of End Time Events”

The following article is a very good rendition of the time and events that will occur during the seven years of Tribulations. This pastor is a dedicated Shepperd of Jesus Christ and his chronology of events will demonstrate his control of the Word.

Readers of this extensive listing of events may find places where you think it will not be as he explains, but we must thank Pastor Riley for making his interpretation of the seven years that are soon to come clear to understand.


FM Riley (28 Oct 2010)
“Chronological Order of End Time Events”

Chronological Order of


End Time Events

By Pastor F. M. Riley

October 27, 2010

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” Ecclesiastes 3:1.

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass;…,” Revelation 1:1


I want to begin this study with some introductory remarks…….

I am writing this study because it has been requested numerous times by some who have read my many studies on Bible prophecy, and believe that the Lord has given me the grace and a true desire to “rightly divide the Word of truth” [2 Timothy 2:15], and to prove the truth of God’s prophetic Word by “comparing spiritual things with spiritual,” 1 Corinthians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:21. After much urging on the part of some of God’s people, and after earnestly seeking the Lord’s will, I have written this study for the benefit and blessing of those of God’s people who are truly serious about studying Bible prophecy,  Revelation 19:10.

The Chronological Order of End Time Events which follows is based upon my own personal studies of Bible prophecy over the past 56 years of study and ministry.  I make no claim that this study is perfect nor inerrent, for I am not perfect nor infallible!  [But I soon will be!  Praise the Lord! Romans 8:18-23; Philippians 3:20-21]. I also make no claim to listing every single event prophesied in God’s Word.  This study lists only the major events of Bible prophecy.  It will be up to our readers to seriously study the prophecies and fill in the details.

If any reader chooses to disagree with the order of events set forth, feel perfectly free to do so.  However, don’t bother me quibbling over details which really won’t matter at all to New Testament believers who will soon be raptured to glory. I do not plan spending my seven years in glory with the Lord and His people debating over who got this right and who got that right.  In plain English, unless those who disagree with the order of events set forth in this study have Scriptural proof, book, chapter, and verse, that I am in error on the order I have set forth, then please don’t waste my time and yours pointing out what you believe to be my error.  I am wide open to being corrected by the Scriptures, for I love the truth of God’s Word, and always seek to “rightly divide” it, 2 Timothy 2:15. But I don’t have time to listen to nor debate silly theories, opinions, and feelings.  No offense is meant towards anyone, but God’s people should always seek to go by God’s Word!  Period!  Is this clear enough?

Now let’s begin…..



In this study I am beginning with the next great Biblically prophesied event which is to occur in God’s great Plan of the Ages, and moving forward from this event.

1.     The Pre-Tribulation resurrection and rapture of New Testament believers.       1 Thessalonians 4:13-18   1 Corinthians 15:50-58   Revelation 3:10  4:1-2

The Pre-Tribulation resurrection and rapture of New Testament believers is absolute Scriptural truth, and has been proven over and over again.  I am really not moved or shaken by those in the ranks of Christianity today who teach a partial rapture, split rapture, pre-wrath rapture, post-tribulation rapture, or no rapture at all, etc.  I have personally exposed the fallacies of their “false teachings” again and again in my studies.  If there are readers who would like Scriptural proof of the Pre-Tribulation rapture, please write or email me and request my series of studies on The Pre-tribulation Rapture.

2.     The Holy Spirit taken “out of the way.”     2 Thessalonians 2:7

No where does the inspired Word state nor teach that the Holy Spirit will be removed from the earth at the rapture.  The explicit statement in the text cited is that He will be “taken out of the way.” The context in which the passage occurs indicates that the Antichrist and all the forces of evil are presently being “restrained” by the Holy Spirit until the rapture occurs.  Once the rapture occurs the Holy Spirit will no longer “restrain” [hold back] wickedness upon the earth.  The Holy Spirit has always been involved in the salvation of the lost, and will continue to be involved in the salvation of those left on the earth who come to Christ during the Tribulation period.

These first two events listed above occur simultaneously [at the same time].

The First Half of the Tribulation

3.     The Antichrist makes his appearance on the world scene immediately after the Tribulation begins.     2 Thessalonians 2:3-10   Daniel 8:9   Revelation 6:2

I would emphasize that the Antichrist will not come on the world scene announcing that he is the Antichrist, but rather will appear to humanity as a brilliant politician, a great orator, a charismatic world leader, and a “man of peace.”  He will be revealed to the Jews and to the world as the prophesied Antichrist only at or near the middle of the Tribulation period.

4.     God’s “Two Witnesses” will appear in Jerusalem.     Revelation 11:3-12

The “two witnesses” will show up in the streets of Jerusalem immediately after the beginning of the Tribulation. During the first half of the Tribulation they will preach Christ to the Jews, calling upon them and the Gentile nations to repent before God, and warning humanity against being deceived by the Antichrist and his followers.  The “two witnesses” will have an international ministry, as they will become [much hated] “celebrities” on the world news, even though their entire ministry will be conducted from the city of Jerusalem.


5.     The 144,000 Jewish “first fruits” will be saved, sealed, and commissioned.  Revelation 7:1-8   14:1-5

The 144,000 Jews out of each of the twelve tribes listed are the very first of the Jews who will be saved, sealed, and commissioned right after the beginning of the Tribulation, probably as a result of the preaching of God’s “two witnesses.” They are expressly referred to in 14:7 as the “first fruits [of Israel] unto God and to the Lamb.” The 144,000 will preach “the gospel of the kingdom” to the whole world during the first half of the Tribulation, Matthew 24:14. The results of their ministry will be the great blood washed multitude saved out of all nations as recorded in Revelation 7:9-17.

6.     The Antichrist will confirm [strengthen] a “covenant” with the Jewish people for a seven year period.     Daniel 9:27

This will occur either right at the beginning of the Tribulation or very soon thereafter.  Regardless of the date it is “confirmed,” it will be a seven year contract apparently guaranteeing seven years of “peace” to Israel and the Jewish people.  In view of the present extreme tension between Israel and those opposed to Israel, the confirmation of this “covenant” could be considered by Israel as a “mighty deliverance” from God and  might be the means of deceiving unbelieving Israel into accepting the Antichrist as their promised “Messiah,” John 5:43.

7.     The third Temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem.        Revelation 11:1-2

2 Thessalonians 2:4

Permission to rebuild the Jewish Temple will probably be included in the seven year “covenant” of Daniel 9:27. There is Scripture that suggests that the Antichrist will actually assist the Jews in rebuilding their Temple.  However, the actual rebuilding of it will be overseen by God’s “two witnesses,” Matthew 17:11; Revelation 11:1-2. The Temple will be erected quickly, within 220 days after the beginning of the Tribulation.

These five events, No’s 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 will begin in close proximity to one another right after the beginning of the Tribulation period.

Meanwhile, while these above listed events are occurring on earth…….

  1. 8. The Lord in Heaven will be receiving “a book…..sealed with seven seals.”

Revelation 5:1-5

This “seven sealed book” is the Title Deed to the earth.  It is also the Word of God as preserved in Heaven [Psalm 119:89].  It is given to Christ because He is our “Kinsman Redeemer,” the only one “legally” qualified to redeem the earth back from Satan’s possession, which Adam lost in the fall, 2 Peter 2:19; Luke 4:5-7.  In order to make this clear our readers should carefully study those passages in God’s Word dealing with the loss, sale, or transfer of the land, and the redemption of the land by a “kinsman.”

9.     The opening of the “seals” on the seven sealed book.     Revelation 6:1 – 8:1

As each of the seals are opened by the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven, the particular


event described for that seal in the Scriptures will occur on the earth.  I would point out that each of these “seal” judgments are the natural consequences of the course that mankind is following even today.

10.    The sounding of the Trumpets.     Revelation 8:2 – 11:15

The sounding of the Trumpets likely overlaps the opening of the seals to some extent, as both appear to end at mid-Tribulation, Revelation 6:17; 11:15. It is at mid-Trib when the Title Deed to the earth is proven by the Lord and the kingdoms of the earth once again become His own “legal” possession, Revelation 10:1-7; 11:15.

While the opening of the seals will be the natural consequences of the course that humanity is following right now, the sounding of the trumpets will be the direct intervention of the Lord Himself in the affairs of mankind upon the earth.


The events under the opening of the sixth seal lead right up to “the great day of His wrath,” which begins at mid-Tribulation, Revelation 6:17.  Likewise the events under the sounding of the 6th trumpet lead right up to “the hour of His judgment,” which also begins at mid-Tribulation.  It is precisely at mid-Trib that the 7th seal is opened and the 7th trumpet is sounded, Revelation 8:1-5; 11:15-19.  Compare 8:5 and 11:19.  Therefore the opening of the 7th seal and the sounding of the 7th trumpet brings the first half of the Tribulation to an end, and begins the last half of the Tribulation, 14:6-7; 15:1. It is precisely at mid-Tribulation that “the everlasting gospel” is taken out of the hands of men and placed in the hands of God’s celestial angels “to preach unto them that dwell on the earth,” Revelation 14:6; John 9:4.  Mid-Tribulation is a prophetically important transition period as humanity passes from merely being “tested” [peirasmos] during the first half of the Tribulation, to coming under the direct judgment [krisis] and “wrath of God Almighty” during the last half of the Tribulation.  I will be glad to send my studies on “The Two Hours,” “The Seven Year Tribulation,” and “Rightly Dividing the Revelation,” to any reader who wants to study this in more depth.

  1. 11. Satan and his angels are cast out of the heavens.   Revelation 12:7-17

At or near  mid-Tribulation,  under  the  sounding  of  the  7th Trumpet, Satan  and  his

angels are cast out of the heavens and confined to the earth.  At that point Satan will cease to be “the prince of the power of the air,” Ephesians 2:2. He will also no longer have access to come before God and make accusations against God’s people, Revelation 12:10-12.

12.     At or near mid-Tribulation the Antichrist will violate the Temple and put an end to the daily sacrifice of the Jews.     2 Thessalonians 2:4    Daniel 9:27

Once the Antichrist has gone into the “Most Holy Place” of the Jews and has sit down on the Ark of the Covenant in the place reserved only for the Lord, he will then tell himself that “he is God.” He will therefore immediately end the daily sacrifice of the Jews, and from that time forward will tolerate no worship by anyone on earth of anyone but himself, Revelation 13:4; 13:8.


13.     The Antichrist will be “wounded to death.”    Revelation 13:3

When the Antichrist violates the Jewish Temple and declares himself to be God, the religious Jews will finally recognize that he IS NOT their promised Messiah.  There will be a group of Jews who will rise up in revolt against the Antichrist, and assassinate him, Daniel 8:12-13; Zechariah 11:17. Look up the meaning of the word “transgression” in your Concordance or Lexicon as used in Daniel 8:12-13.

It is highly likely that counterfeiting the resurrection of Christ, after three days and three nights, the spirit of Satan himself will enter into the dead body of the Antichrist and restore him to physical life.  The Antichrist will then have an extreme hatred for the Jews because of their attempt to destroy him, and because of the injuries to his eye and to his arm which Satan will be unable to heal [Zechariah 11:17], and he will then attempt to destroy every living Jew from the face of the earth during the last half of the Tribulation.

14.     The Abomination of Desolation [the image of the beast] will be erected.     Daniel 11:31   12:1   Matthew 24:15   Mark 13:14   Revelation 13:14-15

This will be an “image” [statue] erected in the courtyard of the Jewish Temple in honor of the Antichrist who was killed and returned from the dead to live again.  It is the fact that the Antichrist whom the lost world knew to be killed will once again live, which will convince “all the world” to follow after him in total amazement, Revelation 13:3.

15.     The “mark” of the beast will be imposed upon humanity on or about the same time that the “image” is erected.      Revelation 13:14-18

This “mark” by decree [Law] will be imposed upon all humanity.  However, both the Jews and all Gentiles which have any “fear of God” in them will refuse to worship the image or receive the mark, causing them to have to flee for their lives or be put to death.

It is these last four events listed which will propel the Antichrist into his position of  power as “ruler of the world.”  It is also at mid-Tribulation that the New World Order will finally achieve a one world government composed of ten kingdoms which will be ruled over by the Antichrist, Revelation 13:1-8; 17:12-13; 17:16-17; Matthew 16:26.

16.    At or just after mid-Tribulation the resurrection of Old Testament believers who lived under the Covenant of the Law will occur.     Daniel 11:45  12:1-2

This prophecy is generally ignored or explained away by most prophecy teachers.  But it is highly important in light of the two separate “covenants” the Lord made with Israel and with His Gentile church.  I will be glad to send my series of studies on The Ages to Come to those of our readers who would like more Scriptural insight into the order [1 Corinthians 15:21-23] of the resurrections of the dead.  

17.     At or just after mid-Tribulation the Jews will flee to Petra.   Matthew 24:15-21   Mark 13:14-19   Revelation 12:6 12:14

The setting up of the “image of the beast” in the courtyard of the Jewish Temple and the imposing of a “mark” upon all mankind will serve as a warning to the Jewish people

to leave their homes and cities and “flee into the mountains” in order to save their lives and the lives of their families, Matthew 24:16; Mark 13:14. The Jews in their flight will


be led by King David himself, who will have been resurrected with the other Old Covenant believers.  King David will ultimately lead the fleeing Jews to the ancient rock city of Petra.  This truth is set forth and documented by Scripture, book, chapter, and verse, in my study on Israel’s Flight to Petra and also in my study on The Davidic Covenant. I will be glad to send these studies to any reader requesting them.

  1. 18. The Russian Confederation will invade Israel.  Ezekiel 38:1-18

At or shortly after mid-Tribulation the Russian armies and their confederated allies will invade Israel and the entire Middle East.  What is commonly overlooked or ignored by most prophecy teachers is that this Russian confederation will occupy the entire Middle East during the last half of the Tribulation.  The war in Ezekiel 39 in which the Lord totally destroys the invading and occupying armies occurs at the end of the Tribulation.  The truth of this is detailed and proven by book, chapter, and verse in my series of studies, Russia’s Invasion of Israel.  I will be glad to send this series of studies to any reader requesting them.

The Last Half of the Tribulation

19.   At or just after mid-Tribulation the “seven vials [bowls] full of the wrath of God” begin to be poured out upon the earth.       Revelation 15:1 – 16:21.

During this time “the wine of the wrath of God” will be “poured out without mixture upon the wicked who have worshipped the beast and received his mark, Revelation 14:9-11. This literally means that during the last half of the Tribulation there will be no mercy, no compassion, no love, no blessing, no relief from judgment, not even a smile or a kind word, upon the wicked, as “the wrath of God” is poured out. 

I have previously pointed out that the seals are the natural consequences of the course that mankind is following right today, and the trumpets are the direct intervention of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in the affairs of mankind during the first half of the Tribulation.  But what many do not realize is that the bowls [vials] of wrath are poured out by the direct command of God the Father Himself during the last half of the Tribulation.  Read Psalm 110:1 again and let the truth stated there soak in.

Further, in the last half of the Tribulation, during the time that “the seven last plagues” are being poured out upon the earth, no one on earth will be saved.  Why?  Because it is explicitly stated that “no man was able to enter into the temple [in Heaven], till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled,” Revelation 15:8. This will include the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, for He too, even though “glorified,” is still “a man,” 1 Timothy 2:5. Why is this important?  Because the real and true “mercy seat” is in the Temple in Heaven, of which the mercy seat in the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem was only a type.   Only after the 7th bowl of God’s wrath has been poured out, will mercy unto salvation again be available to mankind on the earth.     

  1. 19. The destruction of the two religious whores will occur.  Revelation 17 – 18

In spite of the best efforts of some to make them the same, “the great whore that sitteth upon many waters” in Revelation 17 is not the same as “Babylon the great” in Revelation 18. They are not even destroyed at the same time.


The “great whore” in chapter 17 is destroyed at mid-Tribulation when the Antichrist decides that he is “God” and will no longer tolerate humanity worshiping anyone or anything but himself, Revelation 17:16-17; 13:3-4; 13:12.

But “Babylon the great” in chapter 18 is destroyed at the end of the Tribulation by the judgment and wrath of God Himself, Revelation 16:17-21; 18:5; 18:8; 18:20.

The End of the Tribulation

20.     The Marriage Supper of the Lamb.     Revelation 19:6-9

At the end of the seven years of seclusion with her groom in Heaven, exactly in accordance with the ancient Jewish wedding customs, the “wife” of the Lord [once His   espoused bride] is brought forth and introduced to the assembled wedding party and the “marriage supper of the Lamb” occurs in Heaven.  What a joyous occasion!  It is only after these festivities in Heaven are concluded that Christ and His “wife” will return to the earth to subdue their enemies and rule and reign over the Lord’s promised kingdom “for ever,” Daniel 2:44; 7:27;  Isaiah 9:6-7.

21.     The Second Coming of Christ occurs.  Revelation 19:11-16

The literal, visible, bodily, return of Christ will bring the Tribulation to an end.  He and all “the armies…in heaven” will return to the earth riding upon “white horses.” This will probably occur on the last day of the Tribulation, however it is “possible” that more than one day may be involved.  The Lord and all those with Him will be seen coming “in the clouds of heaven” for some period of time before they actually reach the earth, striking absolute terror into the hearts and minds of the incorrigible wicked and causing others to turn to the Lord for salvation when they see Him coming in the heavens, Revelation 1:7;  Matthew 24:30; Mark 13:26; 1 Thessalonians 1:7-10.

  1. 22. The Tribulation is brought to an end by the Lord’s return. Isaiah 34:1-8;

Ezekiel 39:1-21; Zechariah 14:3-7; 14:12-15; Revelation 19:17-21.

The Lord Jesus Christ and all those accompanying Him will literally, visibly, bodily, return to the earth at Petra.  He will there at Petra first identify Himself to the Jews in Petra [Ezekiel 20:33-38; Zechariah 12:7-10; 13:6], being received by that “remnant” of the Jews as their Messiah and Savior.

23.     The Battle of Armageddon.     Revelation 16:12-21

As the end of the Tribulation approaches armies from all over the world will assemble on the plains of Megiddo to destroy Israel and each other, Revelation 9:13-19; 16:12-16; Zechariah 14:13-14. It is at that time that the Lord will totally destroy the occupying Russian army and the armies of the other nations of the world, Ezekiel 38:19 – 39:6; 39:17-20; Isaiah 34:1-8; Revelation 19:11-21. The sequence of events is as follows…..

The Lord Jesus Christ will lead the Jews out of Petra headed back to Jerusalem, Micah 2:12-13. When the Lord comes out of Petra, He will proceed through the wilderness up the east side of the Dead Sea, slaughtering His enemies and the enemies of His people all the way, Isaiah 63:1-6; Ezekiel 39:3-11. When He reaches the northern end of the Dead Sea, He will turn and head due west, which will bring Him into the city


of Jerusalem directly over the top of the mount of Olives, Zechariah 14:4. He will then destroy those armies who are gathered against Jerusalem, filling the Kidron Valley [Jeremiah 7:32; 19:6] with their blood to the bridle bits of the horses, Revelation 14:19-20. He will then proceed from Jerusalem right on up through the valleys of Achor, Jezreel, Jehoshaphat, and Megiddon, slaughtering His enemies and the enemies of Israel and the Jewish people all the way.  Finally, there on the vast plain of Megiddo [Armageddon] the battle will be brought to an end by the total defeat and destruction of the wicked of the earth, and men shall “learn war no more,” Isaiah 2:4; Micah 4:3. Glory to God!  Hallelujah!  Praise the Lord!  Thank you Lord Jesus!

24.    The Devil [Satan] will be chained and cast  into  the  “bottomless pit” for  a thousand years.  Revelation 20:1-3.

During this period of one thousand literal years, no one on earth living in their  natural

bodies will ever be tempted, tested, or bothered in any way by Satan, his angels, or his demons.  In other words, no one living at that time will be able to excuse their sin by claiming that “Satan made me do it!” Mankind on the earth will finally be made to see and acknowledge that SIN comes forth out of the human heart due to fallen man’s “sin nature,” just as the Lord Himself told mankind some 2,000 years ago at His first coming, Proverbs 23:7; Jeremiah 17:9-10; Matthew 12:34; 15:16-20.

The Ages to Come

25.     The Lord Jesus Christ will establish His righteous Kingdom on the earth and rule and reign over the earth for 1,000 literal years.    Revelation 20:4-6

The Lord’s purpose for this reign is, as stated above, to take away mankind’s excuse for their sin, and also to totally purge SIN from the human heart and from the Kingdom of God.  The “sign” that this has been accomplished will be that “death” will ultimately be totally defeated and cease “for ever,” for death is the direct result of sin.  Death will end for ever when Satan and those who follow him at the end of the thousand years are  finally cast into “the lake of fire and brimstone,” Genesis 2:16-17; Romans 5:12; 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:24-26; Revelation 20:7-10.

  1. 26. The Great White Throne Judgment will occur.   Revelation 20:11-15

This will occur during  the  transition  period  between  the  thousand  years Millennial

Kingdom and the Eternal Age.  In this transition period the bodily resurrection of all unbelieving mankind throughout human history will occur, John 5:25; 5:28-29. It is explicitly stated that this is the judgment of “the dead,” Revelation 20:12-13. This is referring to the spiritually dead, for the resurrection of the saved will have already occurred a thousand years previously. All of “the dead” will have to stand and face the Lord Jesus Christ Himself whom they rejected in wicked unbelief during their life time on earth, John 5:22-23.

The wicked “dead” angels and demonic spirits, all of whom have spiritual bodies [1 Corinthians 15:44], will also be brought up from beneath the sea [Job 26:5; Revelation 18:2] and judged, Revelation 20:13. This will include the angel of death himself, 1 Corinthians 15:25-26; Hebrews 2:14; Revelation 20:13-14.


Because the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has already paid the penalty for sin in full, then the “dead” who stand before the Lord at this judgment will be judged “according to

their works,” Revelation 20:12-13. Do you remember what the Lord Himself said during His personal ministry, when asked by men HOW TO DO THE WORKS OF GOD?  The Lord’s reply was, “…This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent,” John 6:28-29. At this judgment “the books” [of God’s Word] and “the book of life” will then be there as evidence that these wicked “dead” refused to  believe God’s Word and refused to BELIEVE on God’s Son during their life time, which is the ONLY work of man which God will accept from a truly repentant sinner, John 3:16; 3:36; 5:24; Acts 16:30-31; 20:21; Romans 10:8-13; 10:17. The Scripture then explicitly states of “the dead” at this final great judgment, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire,” Revelation 20:15.

I want to make it explicitly clear that I AM NOT teaching salvation by works, for the very faith to believe is a gift from God Himself for all those who have a true desire in their heart to seek the Lord, Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5. So have YOU done the very first “ work of God”?

27.     The Glorious Eternal Age.     Revelation 21 – 22

After the conclusion of the Great White Throne Judgment, ALL SIN will have been

purged from the Kingdom of God.  Hallelujah!  This is why Revelation 21:4 explicitly states, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Glory to God!  Hallelujah!  Praise the Lord!

DEATH, sorrow, tears, crying, and pain are all the direct result of SIN entering into the world through the fall of man,  Romans 5:12; 6:23; 8:18-23. Since “death” will be cast into the lake of fire at the Great White Throne Judgment, and the Scripture explicitly states that “there shall be no more death,” then obviously there will be no more sin!  Hallelujah!  Praise the Lord!  Glory to God!

28.     “HOME” AT LAST!     Revelation 21:9 – 22:16

In these chapters and verses in God’s Word John was given a firsthand view of “New Jerusalem,” the “eternal home” of the Heavenly “bride” of Christ and of every true New Covenant believer.  John’s inspired description of this beautiful city should bless the heart and mind of every true believer who reads it.

Those readers who would like more in-depth information on this eternal celestial city may want to request my study, The New Jerusalem, or my series of studies on The Ages to Come. They will be sent free upon request.

May the Lord be pleased to add His gracious blessings to this study and to all who will avail themselves of it is my prayer.

Oct 28, 2010 The Gulf Blue Plague

Are we seeing the introduction of the fourth seal of the book of Revelations, the pale horse? This article introduces us to the new Blue Plague that is brewing at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico to be introduced to living human beings for their destruction and elimination.

Is this their true intent or a misstep taken by foolish men who think they can play the role of God in Creation. Either way the result is the same, the destruction of millions of humans in the coming Apocalypse.

Sad news this is!

GULF BLUE PLAGUE: It’s Not Wise to Fool Mother Nature

Postby Gnosty » 24 Oct 2010, 15:08


By Michael Edward
The World Vision Portal

It’s not wise to fool Mother Nature. Those who think they can get away with it will abruptly learn that payback can be more than they bargained for. That’s because nature will always retaliate in subtle retorts that shake the very foundations of this earth as well as life itself. Playing the role of Creator is a very dangerous game.

As part of their new logo and corporate image campaign, British Petroleum (BP) wants the public to think of them as their new slogan says, “Beyond Petroleum”. BP is far more than a simple oil company. What is revealed below regarding BP and their ‘beyond petroleum’ activities, both prior to and including their Gulf of Mexico catastrophe, will create a picture for the reader one pixel dot at a time. Once the person who reads everything presented here connects all the dots of the picture, it will be more than obvious that BP has tried to fool Mother Nature… and she’s retaliating with a vengeance that is affecting the entire world. This is a perilous game that has now gotten out of control. What began in the Gulf of Mexico, in February 2010, has now escalated into a man-made biological nightmare of unknown proportions.


On June 13, 2007, BP made a long-term research and development deal and an undisclosed equity investment into a company named Synthetic Genomics Inc. based in Rockville, Maryland. Synthetic Genomics was co-founded by Dr. J. Craig Venter to commercialize genomic-driven technologies. (1) Genomics is the scientific study of the entire DNA sequence of an organism’s genome. A genome is all the genetic information in the chromosomes of an organism, including its genes and DNA sequences.

BP/Synthetic Genomics recovered the DNA from subsurface hydrocarbon substrates (biological organisms in crude oil) and applied DNA “sequencing methods” to them. (1) What this means is that they took the DNA from underground crude oil reservoir microbial cells, such as bacteria or viruses, and cultured them in a lab to identify, isolate, and interpret their chemical and genetic properties. Additional “sequencing methods” beyond the initial identity and isolation stages were also carried out.

A central part of the deal between BP and Synthetic Genomics was to create biological transfer processes for crude oil that would lead to improved recovery rates. (1) Their goal was to develop new microbes with lab created genomes that would improve the flow of gas and oil out of a reservoir. For an oil producer like BP, more oil and gas being recovered from a source translates into more profits. This process is known as Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR).


Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is the use of micro-organisms to retrieve additional petroleum production from an oil reservoir. Micro-organisms are introduced into oil wells to produce by-products which help propel oil out of the well. Because these processes help to mobilize the oil and assist oil flow, they allow a greater amount to be recovered from the well. (2)

MEOR is a direct application of biotechnology. It uses biological materials – such as bacteria, microorganisms, and products of their metabolism – to assist the movement of oil out of a well. Other applications include genetic engineering techniques and recombinant DNA technology, which are used to develop new strains of bacteria with improved oil recovery traits. (3)

The micro-organisms can be applied to an entire oil reservoir where they grow between the oil and the well’s rock surface to enhance oil recovery in the following ways:

Bio-surfactant Production – Microorganisms produce slippery substances called surfactants as they breakdown oil. Because they are naturally produced by biological microorganisms, they are referred to as bio-surfactants. Bio-surfactants act like slippery detergents, helping the oil move more freely away from rocks and crevices.

Reduction of oil viscosity – Oil is a thick fluid that is quite viscous, meaning that it does not flow easily. Microorganisms help break down the molecular structure of crude oil, making it more fluid and easier to recover.

Production of carbon dioxide gas – As a by-product of metabolism, micro-organisms produce carbon dioxide gas. Over time, this gas accumulates and displaces the oil driving it up and out of the ground. (3)


The BP/Synthetic Genomics alliance was centered on developing new micro-organisms with lab created genomes (synthetic DNA) to improve the outflow of gas and oil reservoirs. That alliance was publicly announced on June 13, 2007. As to what prior date the actual agreement was made is a corporate privacy matter.

However, less than two weeks before the public announcement, on May 31, 2007, US Patent application number 20070122826 was published claiming exclusive ownership of a set of essential genes and a synthetic “free-living organism that can grow and replicate” that is made using those genes. An international patent application at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO number WO2007047148, published April 27, 2007) names more than 100 countries where it may seek monopoly patents. (4)

The company that applied for the patents was the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI), a non-profit company founded by genetic scientist J. Craig Venter who also founded Synthetic Genomics, BP’s business alliance partner. Both are based in Rockville, Maryland. By no mere coincidence, Synthetic Genomics Inc. sponsors (pays for) fundamental research at JCVI. (1) Since BP has a developmental and research deal as well as an undisclosed amount of equitable stock ownership with Synthetic Genomics, it’s obvious who’s paying for the synthetic genetic research and results at JCVI.

Begin connecting the dots in order to see the picture.


Since they were paying for genetic research to increase oil well flow and production, logic dictates that BP needed to apply a newly created micro-organism(s) produced by their alliance with Synthetic Genomics to the oil reservoir located beneath their Mississippi Canyon Block 252 lease in the Gulf of Mexico. According to BP’s submitted U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) application, there were to be two exploration (not production) wells drilled and capped designated as Wells A and B. Exploration wells are commonly used to inject or introduce Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery micro-organisms and their nutrients into an oil reservoir for increased present and future production.

The first exploration well had been partially drilled by Transocean in October, 2009, but their Marianas semi-submersible drilling rig was damaged by hurricane Ida and was removed for repairs in late November, 2009. On February 3, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon semi-submersible rig commenced exploration drilling to complete the unfinished drilling operation of the Marianas rig. On February 13, 2010, BP informed the MMS that they were experiencing uncontrollable bursts of gas and large cracks at the base of the well. That was the reason they filed for and were granted a permit to abandon and cap the well the same day. (6)

Shortly after, Deepwater Horizon commenced drilling the other exploratory well for BP. We all know the result of the second drilling operation that destroyed the Deepwater Horizon rig on April 22, 2010. One fact that can’t be refuted regarding both exploratory wells is the extreme gas pressures coming from the oil reservoir and the resulting cracks on the ocean floor.

As noted above, MEOR micro-organisms can be applied to an oil reservoir where they grow between the oil and the well’s rock surface to enhance oil recovery. As a by-product of metabolism, micro-organisms produce carbon dioxide gas and this gas accumulates and displaces the oil by driving it up and out of the ground. At the same time, micro-organisms can break down the viscosity of the oil so that it’s thinner and can flow easier.

The published commercial goal of the BP/Synthetic Genomics alliance was to create new genetically engineered micro-organisms to increase the flow of oil. A public trademark of that research involves man-made genomes [synthetic DNA] controlling new artificial cellular organisms. Because of the vast estimated reserves of oil at MC252 in the Gulf of Mexico, the temperatures involved, and its extreme low oxygen depth, previous known or lab enhanced micro-organisms would not be effective in creating an increased flow of the oil.

One can only imagine what the results would be of a new MEOR synthetic bacteria that had a computer DNA designed capability to replicate itself rapidly in that extreme environment. The outcome would be unpredictable since it had never been tested in those conditions before… or had it?

Connect the dots to see more of the picture.


In 2003, JCVI successfully synthesized a small virus that infects bacteria. By 2008, the JCVI team was able to synthesize a small bacterial genome. On May 6, 2010, JCVI revealed they had already created a self-replicating bacterial cell controlled by a chemically synthesized genome they named “synthetic Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0”. (7) This completely synthetic cell with its computer designed genome has absolutely no natural DNA. (1) The etc group from Canada named it Synthia and it contains added watermark chains to identify the genome as artificial. It also has antibiotic resistance indicators. (7) One can only speculate why this artificial bacterium has an inherent programmed capability to resist antibiotics.

This new life form has the ability to replicate itself and organically function in any cell into which it has been introduced. Its DNA is artificial and it’s this synthetic DNA that takes control of the cell and is credited with being the building block of life. This is the first self-replicating synthetic bacterial cell thanks to its computer generated DNA. All of the funding for this came from Synthetic Genomics Inc (1), the company BP has a sizable equity position and alliance with. BP is definitely way beyond petroleum just as their new slogan publicizes.

Why watermark this artificial genome? Doing so makes it identifiable as the unique and patented (privately owned) asset it is. What happens if a human becomes infected with a life-threatening variant bacterial species of Synthia? If you use Penicillin to fight the infection, it won’t do any good. Antibiotic resistance is part of its DNA sequence, so any use of antibiotics would be a waste of time.

What would happen if mankind is contaminated by this self-reproducing artificial life form by contact or by breathing it? Would we become subjective to the DNA of the synthetic cells flowing throughout our bodies? Would the Synthia cells combine with other bacterium within us to create a new deadly bacterium? Since the micro-organism is created and gets its programming from computers, would we become subject to artificial electro-magnetic frequencies recognized by these genomes? There are a lot of questions that need to yet be answered. What matters most is this: Will we find out those answers in time?

Keep connecting the dots. The picture is starting to take shape now.


The oil is there deep in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s not going anywhere soon. It has a continual supply. There are no plumes of oil. There are deep lakes of it.

In a True News radio interview with Rick Wells on June 28, 2010, the late oil industry expert, Matt Simmons, stated “BP claimed to have the only technology to deal with this” when asked why the U.S. government wasn’t taking over the Gulf oil crisis. (8) Considering their three year alliance with Synthetic Genomics and the genetic creations they’ve made, it’s very possible that the U.S. federal corporation in DC was convinced that BP’s breakthrough genomic technologies were the better gambling odds. There had never been so large an amount of crude oil to deal with before.

For decades, scientists have eagerly pursued genetic modifications that would enhance natural microbial abilities to eat up oil spills on both land and sea. Even with DNA recombinants and bacterial gene splicing, there has been little positive success with improving on nature’s natural oil eaters. Although his announcement silently slipped past the ears of news reporters from around the world, JCVI and Synthetic Genome founder Craig Venter foretold of – and spoke openly of – just such an application on May 15, 2010 during the public announcement of what the press is now calling Synthia. He was referring to a Synthia based synthetic bacterial cell that would consume hydrocarbons more efficiently than any known natural micro-organism.

It’s worthy to note that one of the first patents on a genetically engineered organism was a hydrocarbon-eating microbe in 1980. Called the “oil eater,” the microorganism was actually a naturally occurring bacterium that had been given four rings of DNA that were also naturally occurring. This gave the bacterium the ability to degrade four components of crude oil. (10)

Scientifically, there have always been problems with trying to take command of natural micro-organisms. They are too unpredictable in diverse environmental conditions. While they do their job well in certain conditions, they can become dormant in other ecological surroundings. Marine chemist Chris Reddy of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution said that microbes are a lot like teenagers because they’re hard to control. (5) In contrast, artificial microbial life forms like Synthia are completely controlled by their computer created DNA programming.

Microbial ecologist Kenneth Lee says that only microbes can remove the oil from the ocean and that bio-degradation is what removes most of the oil from the environment. History proves his statements are correct, but the time involved can span many decades and beyond. We don’t have that much time to deal with the oil in the Gulf.

Scientific American says “The last and only defense against the ongoing Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is tiny-billions of hydrocarbon-chewing microbes. In fact, the primary motive for using the more than 830,000 gallons of chemical dispersants on the oil slick both above and below the surface of the sea is to break the oil into smaller droplets that bacteria can more easily consume”. (5)

If there was only a super-high-efficient-micro-organism available that could do the job much faster and more efficiently (wink, wink).

Just a few more dots to connect and you’ll see the whole picture.


It’s been puzzling to understand why BP has chosen to continually spray dispersants such as Corexit from airplanes and boats day and night since early May 2010. The spraying hasn’t just been over the Gulf, but along the coastlines as well. While it’s claimed that Corexit disperses oil by breaking it into smaller pieces, can this be the only reason for all this spraying?

In recent tests of rainwater originating from the Gulf of Mexico, natural mineral elements such as copper and iron were found along with nickel, aluminum, and manganese. (9) That’s very unusual for rain clouds originating from a saline ocean. The only logical explanation is that such elements were introduced to the Gulf water where they were drawn up by the rain clouds. The only way that could have happened is from aerial and surface spraying and/or below surface injection.

Are these ingredients of Corexit? Not according to Nalco, the manufacturer. Then these natural earth elements must be added to what is being sprayed along with Corexit, but why? What benefit is there to add elements like copper or iron to seawater? After all, these are natural elements and nutrients you would add to soil to make plants grow, so why add them to sea water?

Bacteria thrive in rich nutrient environments. Natural minerals are necessary building blocks for nutrients that bacteria thrive on. Think of it as hydro-fertilizing the Gulf to make it a better nutritional medium for hungry oil-eating bacterium. The so-called “dispersants” are not only breaking down the crude oil into smaller pieces, they’re adding needed enhancement minerals so that the bacterium can multiply more rapidly and eat up the oil faster. Such bacteria are called Bioremediators.

The dots are forming a big picture. You’re almost there.


The only ingredient missing is a new and previously unknown genus of hydrocarbon-eating bacteria that can survive the cold water depths – where the lakes of oil and tar now sit – so it could degrade it faster than any known natural bacteria.

In a paper published in the journal Science, Terry Hazen and his colleagues at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory discovered in late May through early June 2010 that a previously unknown species of cold-water hydrocarbon-eating bacteria have been feasting on the underwater oil plumes degrading them at accelerated rates. (11)

We can now understand why, on May 15, BP/Synthetic Genome’s CEO Craig Venter hinted of a new hydrocarbon-eating synthetic genome. Prior to that date, JCVI had already applied for numerous additional patents (we were able to find seven) regarding synthetic bio-remediation, such as bacteria synthetic genomes which provide unique DNA information required for “replication of a free-living organism”. In layman’s terms, this means the BP and Synthetic Genome scientists had already created self-replicating bacteria “wherein the assembled DNA molecule is a [synthetic] genome” back in 2007. (13)

Just a few more connecting dots and the picture will be complete.


As I stated on WVP Radio during our premiere broadcast in August, there won’t be any hurricanes entering into the Gulf of Mexico this year. (14) There haven’t been and there won’t be. Otherwise, both the hurricanes and the jet stream will send the synthetic bacteria all around the world.

(Image Credit:

They have to isolate their biologically created nightmare until they can either find a way to control it or create a synthetic genome microbial vaccine to neutralize its effects. Could that have been their plan all along?

On October 7, 2010, Synthetic Genomics Inc. [the BP equity investment company] and JCVI announced the formation of a new company, Synthetic Genomics Vaccines Inc. (SGVI). The privately held company will focus on developing next generation vaccines using JCVI’s genomic sequencing and synthetic genomic expertise, coupled with the intellectual property and business acumen of Synthetic Genomics Inc., to significantly advance and enhance vaccine development. (15)

How amazing that the BP/Synthetic Genomics alliance now has its own vaccine company for patented immunizations. But at what cost to humanity? It’s very profitable to not only create synthetic bacteria but to also offer a vaccine in case there are any problems. When you create the bacteria and control its DNA, you also know how to shut it down. Surely, BP is far Beyond Petroleum.

“We are excited to apply our advanced synthetic genomics technologies to revolutionize vaccine production” said Fernanda Gandara, President of SGVI. (15) Yes Fernanda, I’m sure you and BP are very excited.


The ETC Group is an international civil society organization based in Ottawa, Canada. They recently stated in a press release that

“Synthetic biology is a high-risk profit-driven field, building organisms out of parts that are still poorly understood. We know that lab-created life-forms can escape, become biological weapons, and that their use threatens existing natural biodiversity. Most worrying of all, Craig Venter is handing this powerful technology to the world’s most irresponsible and environmentally damaging industry by partnering with the likes of BP and Exxon to hasten the commercialization of synthetic life-forms.”(12)

Now we have scientific confirmation of “a previously unknown species of cold-water hydrocarbon-eating bacteria” gobbling up oil in the Gulf. (11)

Nothing is known about how this new synthetic bio-remediation bacterium in the Gulf reacts with mankind. This is virgin and uncharted territory. We already know how sea mammals such as whales and porpoises have reacted. Those who haven’t escaped the affected areas of the Gulf have died… along with all other marine life and coastal vegetation. While human health effects from crude oil exposure are well known, the effects of dispersants containing oil-eating artificial bacteria are not known. It’s never been done before, let alone at the immense scale of operations now taking place.

There’s a reason the so-called “dispersants” are guarded by weapon-yielding soldiers and local armed law enforcement in warehouses and deployment yards along the Gulf coast. If a sample were to be analyzed by knowledgeable people, the biological and chemical anomalies it contains would be made public, right down to the unique DNA signature. BP keeps allowing their sorcerer’s brew to be called Corexit in order to hide the fact that it’s not just the name brand product any longer.

The physical symptoms of the BP Flu, BP Crud, Blue Flu, or whatever name you choose to call it, are as unique as the synthetic bacteria being used in the Gulf. Since mankind is carbon based, how do these synthetically created hydrogen and carbon hungry bacteria react to human flesh? Internal bleeding as well as ulcerating skin lesions are the physical signs of their computer created DNA signature.

BP and their paid minions have released a synthetic biological plague in the Gulf of Mexico and it’s out of control. The entire world is a victim of their greed and foolishness. By playing the role of creator, they have begun a very dangerous game with infinite repercussions for life as we know it.

Those who have permitted and agreed to this cover-up are just as responsible as BP. Those of us living on the Gulf coast must demand from every politician and government agency, from the national to the local level, an explanation as to why they allowed this to happen and why they are allowing it to continue. They are all responsible for lying to us and for covering up the truth.

Have you connected all the dots?

Do you see the complete picture now?

Mike Curtiss (27 Oct 2010) “Insider Selling At Highest Level Ever Financial Collapse Now Inevitable”

More of the bad economic signs of the economy.


Mike Curtiss (27 Oct 2010)
Insider Selling At Highest Level Ever Financial Collapse Now Inevitable

Insider selling at highest volume ever tracked
CNBC Fast Money ^ | 26 October 2010 | John Melloy
Posted on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 8:41:16 PM by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin 

The overwhelming volume of sell transactions relative to buy transactions by company insiders over the last six months in key leading sectors of the market is the worst Alan Newman, editor of the Crosscurrents newsletter, has ever seen since he began tracking the data. The strategist looked at insider trading activity amongst the top ten companies that make up the Nasdaq such as Apple [AAPL 308.05 -0.79 (-0.26%) ], Google [GOOG 618.60 2.10 (+0.34%) ] and Amazon [AMZN 169.95 0.95 (+0.56%) ].

Then he analyzed the biggest members of the Retail HOLDRs ETF like Gap [GPS 19.68 0.32 (+1.65%) ], Target [TGT 53.14 -0.62 (-1.15%) ] and Costco [COST 63.68 -0.43 (-0.67%) ], as well as the top insiders in the semiconductor industry at companies such as Altera [ALTR 30.33 0.09 (+0.3%) ], Broadcom [BRCM 37.22 -0.29 (-0.77%) ] and Sandisk [SNDK 37.19 -0.22 (-0.59%) ].

The largest companies in three of the most important leading sectors of the market have seen their executives classified as insiders sell more than 120 million shares of stock over the last six months. Top executives at these very same companies bought just 38,000 shares over that same time period, making for an eye-popping sell to buy ratio of 3,177 to one. The grand total for the three sectors are “as awful as we have ever seen since we began doing this exercise years ago,” said Newman, who was ahead on such trends as the dangers of high-frequency trading and ETFs before the ‘Flash Crash’. “Clearly, insiders are seeing great value only in cash. Their actions speak volumes for the veracity for the current rally.”

But the overall market doesn’t seem to care. The S&P 500 is up 16 percent since its 2010 low hit on July 2nd on the back of strong earnings driven by cost-cutting and the hopes for even more quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve. The insider data “is good reason for considerable caution once the price action fades,” said Simon Baker, CEO of Baker Asset Management. Still “insiders normally buy early and sell early too. Longer term — 12 months out — it is more of a red flag.”

Newman isn’t alone in warning about insider selling. The latest report from Vickers Weekly Insider, a publication that makes investments based upon these transactions, shows that total insider sell transactions relative to purchases on the New York Stock Exchange are running at a ratio of more than four to one over the last eight weeks. The normal reading, because of options selling and other factors, is about 2 sales for every buy, according to Vickers. To be sure, many investors feel the heavy insider selling is just an anomaly based on other reasons.

“These are folks that have had to dip into their stocks for the first time in years, as their salaries have been cut and their bonuses, outside Wall Street, have been significantly curtailed,” said J.J. Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist for TD Ameritrade. “ This may speak more to a cash flow problem, then a market belief.” Still Newman, who is also a favorite commentator of Barron’s columnist Alan Abelson, sees the insider selling as just the latest reason, along with the mortgage foreclosure mess and fully invested mutual fund managers with no fresh powder to put to work, to be cautious on the market. “At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we expect a significant correction,” said the newsletter editor.

October 26, 2010 The Book of Life Article by Jack Kelley

This article written by Jack Kelley is about a very important book referred in several places in the Bible.

In his arguments he mentions that during the Apocalypse there will be no person that is written in this book, although many are alive and permitted to enter into the kingdom at the judgments taking place at the end of the Tribulation once Jesus has returned. It is a good study of this important book.


The Book Of Life

The word book appears 188 times in the Bible. The Hebrew version is cepher (pronounced safer) and the Greek is biblos from which we get the English word Bible. The first mention of a book is in Genesis 5:1 introducing the stories of 10 patriarchs that Moses wove together to form the book of Genesis.


The first time mention is made of the Book of Life (literally Book of the Living) is in Exodus 32 where the Lord threatened to destroy all the Israelites because the Golden Calf rebellion (Ex. 32:10).  Moses made intercession for them asking the Lord to forgive the sins of the people or if not to blot him out of the book (Ex. 32:32).  He was offering to die for the sins of the people.  Then the Lord said instead of destroying them all right then He would delay their ultimate punishment until a future time. But when that time came He would blot out the names of all who had sinned against Him. (Ex. 32:33-34)

The Principle of First Mention holds that the first time an important bit of doctrine is mentioned in the Bible, we’ll often find details surrounding it that help us gain a deeper understanding.  In this case it’s clear.  All our names are written in the Book of Life.  Sinning against God will cause them to be blotted out. To avoid having our names blotted out immediately upon sinning we need an intercessor.  Moses was told his intercession would only postpone the judgment, and that those who sinned would eventually have their names blotted out of the book. So Moses, the Law giver, is seen here as a model of the Law.  The sacrifices offered under the Law could only postpone the judgment for mankind’s sins, they could not provide a permanent  pardon. This would later be confirmed in Hebrews 10:1-4 and other places.

From what we know of the Yom Kippur ceremony, this temporary postponement had to be renewed every year and that’s what made it the most solemn day of the year.  It’s hard for us to imagine the degree of apprehension this day brought.  The Fate of the nation and its people literally hung in the balance. Would God extend the postponement or would He require an accounting then and there?

When Were Our Names Written In The Book?

Psalm 139

speaks of the relationship between God and the pre-born.  It makes a strong case for life beginning at conception, saying the Lord knit us together in our mother’s womb (Ps. 139:13) and that all the days ordained for us were written in the Book of Life before one of them came to be (Ps. 139:16).

There are two pieces of important information here.  The first is that before we were conceived we didn’t exist in any form. We weren’t a spirit waiting for a body to inhabit, or coming fresh from a previous life to begin a new one on our journey to Nirvana.  And the second is while God knows the end from the beginning, our lives don’t consist of some tightly controlled script we’re forced to follow.  The fact that God knew all of our days before we lived one of them simply means that He knew the history of our life while it was still future to us.

Israel And The Book Of Life

An Angel confirmed to Daniel that at the time of the Great Tribulation all Daniel’s people whose names had been written in the Book of Life would be delivered (Daniel 12:1). This was confirmed by Paul in Romans 11:25-26. He said after the rapture of the Church, the partial blindness that has kept Israel from identifying their Messiah would be lifted and representatives from all the 12 tribes would accept  Him as their Savior.  John wrote that at the beginning of the Great Tribulation  believing Jews will be carried away into the desert to be protected from Satan for its duration (Rev. 12:14).  As the time of the 2nd Coming approaches others who have survived will also be saved (Zechariah 12:10).   Together, these Jews will populate Israel during the Millennium, where they’ll be joined by resurrected Jews of Old Testament times who died in faith of a coming redeemer.  (Daniel 12:2)

The Church And The Book Of Life

In the New Testament, the Book of Life is mentioned eight times.  Seven of them are in the Book of Revelation.  The other one is in Phil. 4:3 where Paul said the names of his fellow laborers are listed there. But there other places where the Book of Life is in view, even though it isn’t named as such.  For instance a group of disciples had just returned from ministering in Israel.  They were filled with joy knowing that even demons had submitted to them in the Lord’s name. Jesus told them, “Do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:17-20)

In Rev. 3:5 Jesus said He will never blot the names of those who entrust their destinies to Him out of the Book of Life.  In Romans 8:34 we read that Jesus is at the right hand of God making intercession for us.  From this we can see that the Lord’s intercession is sufficient to give us a permanent place in the book, while Moses could only promise temporary security.

In Rev. 13:8 we’re introduced to another Book of Life, this one belonging to the Lamb who was slain from the foundation of the world.  In this verse John said all those who dwell upon the Earth will worship the anti-Christ, whose names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  Note the odd sentence structure here.  First it says all those who dwell on the Earth will worship the anti-Christ.  Then it says their names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  From this we can infer that at the beginning of the Great Tribulation there’s no one on Earth whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  Peter confirms the Lamb is Jesus, so the Lamb’s Book of Life is the registry of the Church, rescued from the time and place of the End times judgments.

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. (1 Peter 1:18-20)

The only other place where the Lamb’s Book of Life appears is in Rev. 21:27 where it says only those whose names are written therein can enter the New Jerusalem.  This identifies the New Jerusalem as the exclusive home of the Church

Unbelievers And The Book Of Life

Rev. 17:8

says the inhabitants of the Earth whose names have not been written in the Book of Life from the creation of the world will be astonished to see the Beast because he was once, now is not, and yet will come. This tells us that not only were our names written there before we were born as Psalm 139:16 revealed, but were actually written there from the creation.  It also reveals that those who are astonished by the beast have already had their names blotted out of the book, just as the 3rd angel of Rev. 14 had warned (Rev. 14:9-11).  The Greek word translated astonished in Rev. 17:8 means to marvel at, or hold in admiration.  Worshiping the anti-Christ is cause for having one’s name blotted out of the book.

Some believe that the phrase once was, now is not, and yet will come means that the anti-Christ will be  a figure from the past, someone who had lived before John’s time, was dead when John wrote the book of Revelation (95 AD), but will come back at the End of the Age as the anti-Christ.  The most popular candidates are Antiochus Epiphanes who died in 163BC, the Roman Emperor Nero who died in 68 AD, and Judas Iscariot who died in 32AD. Antiochus Epiphanes and Nero are two of the most specific historical models  of the anti-Christ, and Jesus called Judas the son of perdition (John 17:12) the same title by which Paul referred to the anti-Christ (2 Thes. 2:3)

The Great White Throne judgment of  Rev. 20:11-15 shows the dead being judged according to what is written in the books (Rev. 20:12).  Several books will be used in this judgment.  They contain the record of everything everyone ever born has said (Matthew 12:36-37) or done, whether good or bad, in public or in secret (Ecclesiastes 12:14).  But in concluding the passage, John wrote that regardless of their good works, if their name has been blotted out of the Book of Life they will be cast into the Lake of Fire.  The only way to prevent being blotted out of the book is to allow the death of Jesus to pay the penalty for our sins. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

This study was not meant to cover every reference to the Book of Life, whether direct or indirect, but to give us a more complete understanding of its purpose.  Our names were inscribed there before the Creation as a record of our existence, and because of our belief that the Lord died for us and rose again they can never be blotted out.  Selah 10-23-10.
