Weekly Update from Headquarters
21 August 2015
Greetings from Tyler,
Every week brings a series of developments and revelations
that we scarcely know how to process.
A shelling skirmish
along the border between North and South Korea broke out this week and is
threatening to escalate. No one
that the U.S.
maintains nearly 30,000 troops along the “demilitarized” zone, or that North
Korea's “dear leader”
Kim Jong Un is bat guano. North
operational nuclear weapons acquired after years of negotiations with the
UN's IAEA, “six party
talks” that included Russia, China, Japan, South Korea and the United
North Korea worked underground and behind the scenes in
violation of agreements, while convincing the “non-proliferation” partners that
they were acting in good faith.
Eventually, they resumed full-on nuclear work at facilities they'd pretended to
close. You won't have forgotten
nuclear test detonations in 2006.
is currently on the brink of a war footing with South Korea, and considered
nuclear power” with missiles capable of delivering warheads.
Any of this sound familiar?
If anything, North Korea seemed much more cooperative than Iran has been.
And after years of talks and interim progress,
North Korea pulled the plug on all the “non-proliferation” agreements and began
detonating nuclear devices.
Is there any doubt that Iran will follow the same course?
Except in Iran's case, there will be an
one hundred fifty billion dollars released to pursue the continuing goal of
annihilating Israel and defeating the United States.
What a deal!
Much to our national shame and disgrace, more has come to
light about the
EVIL being perpetrated against live-born babies by the government-funded and
protected abortion industry. How
high-profile “leaders” continue to stand behind these atrocities?
Apparently, they won't subject themselves to the interviews, admissions
of “doctors” or the grizzly scenes that portray their practices.
Mia Love of Utah, broke down and sobbed on Live TV this week while discussing
the reality of the brutal practices.
Who but a calloused “abortion doctor” could countenance such things
without an emotional breakdown?
Who are we as a people?
Are we to be compared to
heartless butchers of Nazi Germany, or
to the rapists and murderers of ISIS?
employees of these wretched “clinics” have placed themselves in that category.
Yet nothing is being done to prevent these outrageous acts, at least not yet.
With Congress at recess, we can only hope they're getting an earful from
Texas representatives are at least in the forefront condemning these heinous
sins and calling for action to stop public funding.
If not, we can expect God to revoke our protections and blessings.
Maybe He already has. It
wouldn't be surprising
if America were to fall victim to deadly terrorist strikes, perhaps even a
zapping of the electric and electronic infrastructure of the entire United
States. Is that actually what
present leadership wants? Sometimes
you can't help wondering.
Every time we
see markets taking a precipitous plunge, we wonder if it is the beginning of
something huge. We've just seen two
consecutive days of bloodbath on the NYSE.
Currencies are plunging around the globe, commodities prices are in collapse and
hundreds of billions invested are lost.
Countries around the world, large and small, have been selling raw
materials to China. But
China's economy is suddenly on the skids, the demand for commodities has
collapsed and so have prices.
With the developed nations, including the United States, heavily indebted,
robust economic activity is crucial to service the debts and keep the bubbles
Is this the “big one?”
Many have been warning of a scenario that looks a lot like the one
playing out in recent days.
What will it take to get
the population of the United States to realize that our nation, our way of life
cannot withstand the consequences of evil on a grand scale?
The advent of a vicious, murderous caliphate spreading across
the Middle East hasn't had much effect.
The guarantee of
getting nuclear weapons with the full knowledge and cooperation of the United
States hasn't done it. The
invasion of foreigners
bringing crime, disease and terror seems to have little effect.
The explosion of murderous crime in America's cities barely merits
mention. The dismemberment of living
babies has yet to be addressed. What
will it take?
I'm guessing it will take at least a nationwide blackout.
No more A/C, HDTV, text messages or e-mails.
Should I go on about what would happen at gas stations and grocery
Communism isn't the answer, regardless of what the pope preaches.
Let us hope the nation and the world won't turn to him, thinking it will
put them in God's good graces. But
that's what prophecy indicates.
Let's not wait for things to get any more dire.
The stage has been set for terrible outcomes and consequences across the
board. The buffoons in power and
media have seen to it. May God
protect His people and preserve His Church.
P.S. We just
received 5,000 copies of a newly designed and printed Answer to Unanswered
Prayer. Design is complete on a new
full-size wall calendar for 2016 that features each annual Holy Day, to be
distributed at each Feast site this year.
A new 21st Century WATCH is well along in layout, and it is an updated
example of what you've seen in recent issues.
Our thanks go out to all who have shown such dedication in support of
God's Work. We hope to see you all
at the Feast of Tabernacles.
