Greetings, everyone; welcome to Sabbath services! Up north I covered quite a bit of news that you won't hear from the 'lame-brain' media, nor will you hear on the 'right-wing' talk shows. And you won't get it in the newspaper. I tell you, the so-called San Jose Mercury News is getting thinner and thinner and thinner and it's getting so thin that you hardly can find it when you go out to look for it in the morning. Then you reach down and pick it up and it feels no heavier than this.

But here is one article I want to repeat that I did up north, which is this: A Secretive Banking Elite Rules Trading in Derivatives. Remember how I said, just like the market is now, goes up, comes down; goes up, comes down. All of these big guys know what's going to happen. So when they know it's going to go down, they put in what is called a 'put'; that means you're betting on this stock to go down. When it goes down, the people that own it, while it's going down and they don't sell it before it goes down, they lose the money. The money they lose, you get on the 'put.' So when you know it's going up, you put in a 'buy' order and then you make the money on that, same way with the gold. You watch the gold market—it goes up, goes down; goes up, goes down. But it keeps creeping up higher and higher and higher.

Remember I said that the elite plan it that way? I've got another whole article I've got to read, so I'm going to bring a sermon, Who Rules the World Today? That will also help crystallize why the only way they can bring is a world government is through a world currency. Because they can't change the governments in all the country to agree with the things that the elite want to do. By the time they just get ready to do it, look what happened here in America. They were just getting ready to really take over the U.S. Bam! We have election and kick out the bums. Only problem is there's still enough bums left in there that you can't get things right. But what do you expect from a lying, carnal government.

Just like this morning the news said that, 'Oh, the Senate lovingly approved 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Oh, isn't that really wonderful.' Well, God says, 'Give ear you rulers of Sodom and you rulers of Gomorrah.' God is going to take care of them in the long run.

This is right out of The New York TimesA Secretive Banking Elite Rules Trading in Derivatives, Dec.11, 2010:

On the third Wednesday of every month, the nine members of an elite Wall Street society gather in Midtown Manhattan.

I wonder what society that could be? Doesn't tell us. I wonder how they meet downtown without being seen? I imagine they come in limousines and they go down into the hotel garage and there's a special elevator that they get in and go up to whatever secret room they're going to go to.

The men share a common goal: to protect the interests of big banks in the vast market for derivatives, one of the most profitable—and controversial—fields in finance. They also share a common secret…

Now my question is: how many other little groups of nine from other of the elite meet in different places at different times and plan out everything. This is why they are so scared to death of Sarah Palin. Because if she's ever President, I would just venture to guess she would say, 'I'm signing an Executive Order national emergency: We're opening every field of oil in the United States of America for immediate drilling and we are setting aside all the major EPA rulings.' BANG! 'Can't do that, because now we can't control America to shut it down.' That's why they hate her. They hate her because she's not an elite. They hate her because she didn't go to their universities. She doesn't belong to their clubs.

Now when you hear anyone talk about establishment, they are the mucky-muckies that belong to all of these things. And speaking of political deals, we don't know all the details of the meeting between Obama and Mitch McConnell. I think one of them is, 'We'll approve that for you, the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'

They also share a common secret: The details of their meetings, even their identities, have been strictly confidential.

There goes Mr. MMM or there goes Mr. OOO. You don't know who they are.

Drawn from giants like JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, the bankers form a powerful committee that helps oversee trading in derivatives, instruments which, like insurance, are used to hedge risk.

Now if it's used right, you can make lots of money. Anybody ever wonder why Southwest Airline was able to keep fares so low? Because on derivatives, they bought oil years and years and years in advance so they would get it for $40 a barrel. Now the other airlines didn't do that. I don't know when it runs out on them.
In theory, this group exists to safeguard the integrity of the multitrillion-dollar market. In practice, it also defends the dominance of the big banks.

Now our little bank over here, San Benito Bank, it's a community of banks. They have banks here, Salinas, Santa Barbara, Fresno, a couple other banks. Well, they were getting down to a marginal area and the Forbes group put in $500-million to buy shares in the bank. Though it's a little local bank right now, it's part of the big banking system. So a lot of things go on we don't know anything about.

The banks in this group, which is affiliated with a new derivatives clearinghouse... [So they're coordinating everything.] ...have fought to block other banks from entering the market...

They don't want them to know. 'You can't come in and do this. If you want to have derivatives, you must buy from us.'

...and they are also trying to thwart efforts to make full information on prices and fees freely available.

Let's do everything honest and above board, open and transparent. That means shut it all down so nobody knows anything. Isn't that right?

Banks' influence over this market, and over clearinghouses like the one this select group advises, has costly implications for businesses large and small, like Dan Singer's home heating-oil company in Westchester County, north of New York City. This fall, many of Mr. Singer's customers purchased fixed-rate plans to lock in winter heating oil at around $3 a gallon.

Now speaking of oil, back last August-September they said, 'Price of oil is going to vary between $80-90. Where has it been? Near $80, $85, $89, $87, $86, $82, right in there. And why is it that England now is facing a shortage of heating oil when they've got the North Sea oil? I wonder what British Petroleum is doing? England, of all places! Now back to this. And they bought that derivative:

While that price was above the prevailing $2.80 a gallon then...

So it was $2.80 then, so they bought derivative at $3. Has anybody tried buying some diesel? Diesel is comparable to heating oil. In fact, it's exactly the same. It's what? $3.57 a gallon right now, which means, that if they locked it in at $3, then this derivative becomes an insurance to them that anything above $3 they have to pay, so the company does not have to buy it at over $3. You understand that? So that's how a derivative works.

But Mr. Singer wonders if his company, Robison Oil, should be getting a better deal. He uses derivatives like swaps and options to create his fixed plans. But he has no idea how much lower his prices—and his customers' prices—could be...

If he could get in there and buy them direct himself. Because whenever you go through a broker, you're going to pay his markup. For example, gold has three prices:

  • Retail—$2100-2200 for your collectible coins an ounce
  • Wholesale—$1800 per collectible coin
  • Buy Back—that is if you go to a dealer and you say, 'Okay, I need to sell these.' That's a buy back. You get $1650.
  •  

So you have a $550 spread between retail and buy back. So this is what this Mr. Singer was facing. He pays the premium plus the fee to get his derivative. Where if he could come to the window and buy it himself, he could get it for the same price that these elite banks have. They're controlling the market. That's how they control all of these things. That's how they control Washington, D.C. These are the international elite that run every government and giant corporation and bank in the world. All of these things have these three-tier prices.

…he says, because banks don't disclose fees associated with the derivatives.

But when I was a loan broker, I had to put down there what my fee was. My fee was generally one point if you have good credit, one and a half points—if you don't have good credit, you get charged more. One and a half points if you had so-so credit and if you had lousy credit up to three points.

So it's just like Dolores and I saw the other night. They were talking about these pay-day loans. They have right up there: annual percentage rate 517%! And the mafia when they ran that, and I think the mafia still does. You think they would give up these pay-day loans? 'No, we're in business now, we wear suits. We have very small guns and we keep them hidden.' But if you didn't pay, they'd come break an arm, break a leg. You know what their interest rate was? 1,000%. And who do they get it from? Poor little people that can hardly make ends meet. So Singer continues to say:

"At the end of the day, I don't know if I got a fair price, or what they're charging me."

They should have a full disclosure statement. All loans have a full disclosure statement with all fees, appraisal, points for the broker, points for the lender, all of the title fees, the insurance fees, the impounds for taxes, and everything. By the time you get done you look at it and say, 'Oh, what does this mean!' Then they have a silly thing called an APR. An APR is an annual percentage rate. So what they do, they add in all of the things to go in with the price with the loan. So you get a 5% loan, but you APR is 5.87%. You think, 'How can my APR be 5.87 when I get a 5% loan? That because all the add-ons are included in that first year. So here's how derivatives work:

Derivatives shift risk from one party to another, and they offer many benefits, like enabling Mr. Singer to sell his fixed plans without having to bear all the risk that oil prices could suddenly rise. Derivatives are also big business on Wall Street. Banks collect many billions of dollars annually in undisclosed fees associated with these instruments—an amount that almost certainly would be lower if there were more competition and transparent prices.

Huh! What do you know about that?

Just how much derivatives trading costs ordinary Americans is uncertain. The size and reach of this market has grown rapidly over the past two decades. Pension funds today use derivatives to hedge investments.

So they say, 'Okay, we're going to buy this stock, but we don't know how good it is, so we're going to buy a derivative, which is an insurance plan. So if the stock goes below a certain amount, then the derivative company has to pay us the difference between the prices.'

In 2008 when the financial market was going down, they were drawing the money out of the 401K's and out of the investment funds and they came running to the government and said, 'Oh, the whole thing is going to collapse!' No one asked the question who was selling. I mean, very simple. Who was selling to do this? 'But we need $875-billion to rescue the whole world!' They didn't tell you what was it? The Feds loaned $3.6-trillion!

So what you're going to see on the stock market is this. They're all talking up, 'Oh, it's going to be good next year.' Why? Remember who owns all the original stocks and bonds. The Depository Trust and Clearing Company (DTCC), which is owned by the Federal Reserve—worth $33-trillion. These are assets, then, on which they can make loans. Who rescued Europe this time out of the thing that they had to do with Greece and with Ireland and soon coming Spain, and Portugal? 'Uncle Ben' at the Federal Reserve, loaned them $600-billion! You don't hear any of this on the news. Did you ever hear anything like this on the news? ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox? Maybe get a little on Fox, but you never get anything like this.

Pension funds today use derivatives to hedge investments.

So they take the money that comes in that all the members to the pension fund have been contributing. 'What are we going to do with all this money?' Well, we're going to invest it. 'We've got to protect it, so we have to buy derivative in case something happens.' If something happens, all those derivative companies are going to go broke and they aren't going to be able to pay anything. The pension funds will be wiped out of all their investments and funds and nobody's going to have any pension at all.

Whenever you have a society based upon debt, which is deceit, and you can take these things and slice them and dice them and have all different kinds of things, as I explained with the mortgage securities last week. You're going to have things like this come up and when the pressure comes… Now, when they want to bring a world currency, they're going to collapse everything. BOOM! Everywhere in the world everybody is going to be affected, all at once, the same day. It's going to go around the world like dominos. You've seen how they set up dominos. They've even filled up whole rooms. You have the dominos go down the steps and up the steps. Then it comes to the end—'Oh, a world currency. What a wonderful solution.'

But big banks influence the rules governing derivatives...

And I wonder how many lobbyists are there in Washington telling the senators and representatives, 'Now if you vote for this, we'll make sure that you have money for your re-election. If you don't vote for it, we don't know how we get money to support you.' Don't think that that doesn't go on.

The banks' latest point of influence are clearinghouses like ICE Trust...

ICE Trust, I wonder what that is. Is that where the cold hard cash is—on ice?

...which holds the monthly meetings with the nine bankers in New York.

Friendly little group—isn't it? No wonder money flies away to money heaven, as we saw. Yes, indeed!

****

Let's come back here and let's read Revelation 12:9. We really need to understand this today, because this is just the way that it is. This is why Christ has to return and the kingdom of God set up on earth. Revelation 12:9: "And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent... [It identifies who it is—right? Goes clear back to the Garden of Eden and before.] ...who is called... [it names him] ...the devil and Satan... [The devil means the one who is the chief of evil and Satan means the adversary of God.] ...who is... [this is present-tense active participle in the Greek] ...who is deceiving the whole world..."
A man sent me an email, I think I mentioned this once before, but this comes to mind and he says, 'How can you say that the book of Revelation is literal, when it's all written in symbolic language?' And I told him, 'Well, the way you know that it is real is when you understand the rest of the prophecies in the rest of the Bible, which then fills everything out so that it is no longer in symbolic language, but it's real.' It's very interesting. I'd like to do a little quick word study on that some time--the whole world—I wonder how many times that it says: the whole world, all the world, all the people, all nations—just in the book of Revelation.

"...he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him…. [Here is what's important. This is the last time that he's cast down.] …And I heard a great voice in heaven say, 'Now has come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of HIs Christ because the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them day and night before our God'" (vs 9-10).

This is just before the Kingdom of God is set up on the earth. This is the thing that precedes the beginning of the Great Tribulation by how many ever days we don't know. What is the thing that signals the great tribulation to start? What did Jesus say? Matt. 24, when you see the 'abomination of desolation stand in the Holy place...' Then John added, 'Who reads, let him understand.' Then you read down, talks about how difficult it's going to be, and so forth, and don't have your flight in the winter, and so forth, and He says, 'Then there shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world.' So when that abomination of desolation goes into the temple, that's when the Tribulation begins. This casting down of Satan must precede it by some space of time.

Verse 12: "'Therefore, rejoice you heavens and those who dwell in them. Woe to those who inhabit the earth and the sea! For the Devil has come down to you, having great wrath because he knows that he has only a short time…. [How long is a short time? It doesn't tell us. But can we venture a reasonable estimation? Yes, we can from the rest of the contents here.]: …And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who had brought forth the man child." That's the Church!

Now we're going to see there are two parts to the Church. The whole Church gets persecuted, but not all of them are martyred. What's one important thing that Jesus promised concerning His Church? Matt. 16, He said to Peter, not build the Church on Peter, but He said, 'On this Rock,' referring to Himself. Who's the one called 'the Rock' all the way through the Bible? God! Do a word search in Psa. about the Rock. And 1-Cor. 11:4 says that Rock was Christ.

There are going to be those who are martyred. A lot of people think that they're going to go to a place of safety, but it's not going to be many. The only reason they're going to a place of safety is because Jesus said, after He said, 'I will build My Church,' He said, 'And the gates of the grave shall not prevail against it.'

So that means if there's a martyrdom and today they're going to find them everywhere. Whoever is a Christian, they're going to find you. They're going to know who you are. And they'll have their cell phones and say, 'There's one of them right there.' They're developing a whole cell phone network with the Department of Homeland Security. Did you know that? In addition to all the snitch lines that they have now—right? And you don't have to give your identity. So you're hauled into court and you're convicted—who is your accuser? Because you see, this whole system is becoming more and more totalitarian, and it's becoming more and more void of laws and protection because we're living in a lawless society.

Now here's what happens, v 17: "Then the dragon was furious with the woman and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." If you're going to make war against the church, you're going to kill them. That's why the fifth seal in Rev. 6 is the martyrdom of the saints. They're going to get every single one, except those that God takes to a place of safety. It's not a rapture going to heaven. The Protestants have it wrong, because they say if you die your soul goes to heaven and they really don't believe in a resurrection. Have you ever heard a Catholic priest talk about the resurrection after he said, well, their soul is heaven already? Kind of hard to do! Where are you—here, there, are you a body, are you dust, are you decayed. Hello, maybe you're in purgatory.

All the way through the Bible there is the resurrection. I've got to give some sermons on the fraud of what is called the 'rapture.' I think I only have one or two sermons on it, called the Ruptured Rapture. But that's about it. But millions of people believe it. They think that when the rapture comes, they're going to be taken away. Cars will crash into each other, buses will stop, airlines will crash. All of those other people who are spirited off to 'meet Christ in the air,' and that's because they don't understand a thing about the resurrection. That's why. I'm going to tell it very straight the way it is. God holds all those ministers responsible for all of their lies. And that's why they can't understand the Bible. That's why they have to make up stupid doctrines, because they don't obey God, so they don't understand it. It's that simple! But they sit up there in their uniforms and stiff collars and hats, perfume, their boyfriends are sitting in the front row over there, giving pronouncements of all kinds of things.

Verse 14: "And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, so that she might fly to her place in the wilderness..." Now it doesn't say airlines! Even one minister of God went to Jordan to try and buy Petra, and try and get discount tickets for all the member in his church to fly to Jordan so they could go to Petra. But if and when they got to Petra they'd have to ride jackasses all the way to Petra. For all of us nice softies here in western civilization, how long do you think you're going to last on the back of a jackass? You're not—right? You're not!

I should go to Luke 17 to show who's going to go. How are they going to be taken? There will be some who will escape. It tells us in this parable that it's going to cut across all aspects of life. Luke 17:20: "Now when the Pharisees demanded of Him when the Kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, 'The Kingdom of God does not come with observation.'"

That is, you aren't going to see it by looking for it. When the heavens roll back as a scroll, that's a warning it's on its way. You're not going to find the Kingdom of God by looking and they were looking for the Messiah and there He was standing right in front of them. But since He didn't join their political group and their religious group, they didn't accept Him. It's like anything else. If you're going to be a Christian and if you're going to follow Christ, you're not going to fit into this world. How are we to live in the world but not be of the world. There will come a time. You can be nice and friendly and happy, all of that, and superficial people will think you're a nice guy.

I went into the bank and the teller there, her nails were all, you know, they pay big bucks to get their nails all fixed up. And I said, 'Oh, you've got your nails all fixed up. Yeah, I got all these fixed up for Christmas. I said, 'Really. You're going to do a lot of things during Christmas, and things?' Oh, yes! I said, 'Well, I can't handle it. There are just too many lies with it.' Oh, she says, I love Christmas. That's just the way it is in the world. Now if she knew that I preached that Christmas is against God, she wouldn't even talk to me or look at me. Likewise with the Pharisees; they didn't recognize Jesus, though they knew that He should be here.

Verse 21: "Neither shall they say, "Behold, it is here!" Or, "Behold, it is there!"'" And as Christ said in Matt. 24, someone's going to say, 'Oh, it's in the desert.' And 'I read a book, Oh, yes, the Messiah's out here in the desert in the Arab country.' Really? How's Christ going to come from heaven if He's out in the Arabian desert? And 'if you know this guy, he'll take you out there and you can secretly meet him.' Or 'Behold, He's in a secret chamber and we've got Him locked up over here.' Christ, being a Spirit being could walk through walls, so how you going to keep Him in a secret chamber, huh?

He tells them exactly: "'For behold, the kingdom of God is standing in the midst of you'" (v 21). Now the King James reads, 'The Kingdom of God is within you.' That's why people say, 'The Kingdom of God is in my heart.' That's how people come up with these silly things. Why was the Kingdom of God standing there among them? Because Christ was the kingdom of God on earth when He was here, the future King.

"Then He said to the disciples, 'The days will come when you shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and shall not see it. And they shall say to you, "Look here," or, "Look there." Do not go, neither follow them…. [Here is how Christ is going to return. Here's how He's going to show the sign of the Son of man that He is getting ready to return.] …For as the light of day... [What is the light of day? The sun!] ...whose light shines from one end under heaven to the other end under heaven... [It does it every day—doesn't it? Yes!] ...so also shall the Son of man be in His day'" (vs 22-24). Now then, it projects way forward to His day. That's why we need the book of Revelation to tell us when that will be, specifically Rev. 6:12.

Verse 25: "'But first it is necessary for Him to suffer many things and to be rejected by this generation. Now as it was in the days of Noah, so also shall it be in the days of the Son of man. They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah went into the ark, and the Flood came and destroyed them all'" (vs 25-27).

And remember, it sat there for seven days after they got in. I wonder how many people out there jeering and say, 'Oh, look at this nut. He built this big boat out here, sitting on dry land and he says it's going to rain and flood the world.' Wonder if they're up there banging on the sides of the ark. Then on the seventh day it started to rain. Then the fountains of the deep broke up and there's water gushing up out of the earth, and the window of heaven were opened. Then they said, 'Oh, oh, it's raining. Let's head for high ground.' Won't help you, because the water covered it fifteen cubits above—fifteen cubits above is like twenty-two and a half feet—all the mountains. That's why you can go to the highest mountain—what do you find? Evidence of a flood! Everywhere on earth, yet all the scientists say, 'Oh, there's no evidence of a flood.' Are they blinded or what?

Verse 28: "And it was the same way in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building." They didn't know it was going to happen. When the two angels came in there all the scouts at the gate said, 'Hey, look at this, new men. We've never seen them. You come into Sodom, you have to be initiated into our sexual activities.' So they came to Lot's house. They were banging on the door and banging on the door to get them.

The angels finally struck them blind. And Lot, he said, 'Oh, take my daughters.' Now how'd you like to be one of Lot's daughters and have your father say that? 'Daddy, what did you say?' Finally, the two angels disguised themselves and went out and saw everything that was going on in the streets. You can probably see that if you go up to San Francisco and go into Haight Ashbury and see everything that is there. So you know, are we living in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah? Yes, we are! Are we eating, are we drinking, are we buying, are we selling, are planting, are we building? Yes, indeed, we are, everywhere.

Verse 29: "'But on the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed them all.'"  They have found in the Dead Sea area where Sodom and Gomorrah were. Just in that particular area below the Dead Sea on the ground are balls of sulphur, high-grade sulphur, that if you put it in a teaspoon and light it, it would burn and melt right through that teaspoon. 'Well, we don't know where the city of Sodom is.' Find the sulphur!

"This is how it shall be in the day that the Son of man is revealed.... [Meaning it's going to come BANG! All of a sudden!—'when the heavens roll back as a scroll.' It said here, 'that you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of man.' Now then He picks it up here in another way to look at it. Because when the Tribulation begins, it's going to begin just as suddenly—isn't it?] ...In that day, let not the one who is on the housetop, and his goods in the house, come down to take them away... [this is if you're living in Jerusalem] ...and likewise, let not the one who is in the field return to the things behind. Remember Lot's wife" (vs 30-32). This is a key.

  • How did Lot and his two daughters and his wife get out of Sodom? The angels took them!
  • How are those going to a place of safety with the wings of a great eagle?
  • There are angels that look like eagles—are there not?

Then he gives this, v 33: "Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life... [That is for Christ's sake.] ...shall preserve it. I tell you in that night...'" (vs 33-34).

I want you to notice carefully three things in a row here. I want you to think about the earth; look at a globe. Always, if you were right above the North Pole and look down on the earth, half would in light and half would in darkness all the time—right? As we're speaking right here, it is dark. It is night over in the Middle East.

"'I tell you in that night there shall be two in one bed... [Now the King James says, 'Two men in one bed.' But it just says two in the Greek.] ...one shall be taken... [By whom? An angel!] ...and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together... [Now you don't grind grain at night—do you? When do they normally grind grain? Early in morning while it's cool!] ...one shall be taken, and the other shall be left" (vs 34-35). This is where they get 'the rapture.' But it is taken to that place of safety (Rev. 12).

"Two men shall be in the field; one shall be taken, and the other shall be left" (v 36). This shows daytime—right? When do you work in the field? From sunrise to sunset—correct? So what does this do? This pictures the whole earth, night, morning, and day! So in that day when it comes time to go to a place of safety, those who will go, who's going to make the decision to who is going to go? God will and will send the angel to take them! That's why Satan is furious and goes out and starts the martyrdom against those who are left.

Verse 37: "And they answered, saying to Him, 'Where, Lord?'... [He didn't tell them where—did He?] ...And He said to them, 'Where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.'" Isn't it interesting, the wings of a great eagle.

There is a great nesting area for eagles and vultures right in the area of Petra. Does that say that's the place? No! There's also places like that in Africa. Let's not get excited about where it is. And one person said, 'Well, if it isn't there, how are we going to know where it is?' The answer is very simple: If you don't know where it is and you get there, when you arrive you'll know where you are. If you know where you're supposed to go and you don't get there—sorry, buddy, the knowledge didn't do you any good.

Revelation 12:14: "And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, so that she might fly to her place in the wilderness... [That doesn't tell us where it is, does it? No, it doesn't!] ...where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."

What do we have? We have a timeframe! Time is a year; times is two years. So how many is that? One plus two is three—and then a half. How long is the Tribulation period? Three and a half years. So we have three and a half years as a timeframe to look at. We have the persecution that starts. How long will that be? Sometime before the beginning of the three and a half years—right? Leading up to the time that being taken to a place of safety will take place.

Verse 15: "And the serpent cast water out of his mouth as a river, so that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed up the river that the dragon had cast out of his mouth. Then the dragon was furious with the woman and went to make war with the rest of her seed..." (vs 15-17). Now the King James says 'remnant' and that's not true.

Remnant in English means the small remaining bit, like on a bolt of cloth. You get a whole bolt of cloth and then you take it down and take it down and pretty soon you just have the spool or the board that it's wrapped around and there's just a little bit left and that's called a remnant. But it means the rest, because it's very likely that the greater number are the ones who are going to be martyred.

Notice their behavior, v 17: "...went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God... [Now is this the end time or not in this prophecy? Yes! Does this show that there will be people keeping the commandments of God? Yes!] ...and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." That is under the Gospel the way that it should be understood. Yes!

This shows how Satan is deceiving the whole world and I've got another whole article that I need to read to show that the international elite have been working at developing a one-world government for a long, long time. They will be frustrated in every one of their endeavors. We'll close this section here and then take a break with this.

Remember last year when they had the global warming thing in Copenhagen, Denmark? And you know they talked about world governance and I saw the picture of it, this great auditorium and all these super-elite. I can just imagine the atmosphere. They were there to set the framework for a world government through global warming. About four or five months before that, God flipped the switch on the sun. The earth was warming, because of sunspots. They had a record high number of sunspots. Sun spot activity run in cycles of eleven years. When there are sun spots the temperature of the whole solar system goes up. They actually—because of the things they had in Mars—saw that the temperature on Mars went up the same number of degrees that it went up on the earth. That's because of all the people and pollution and cars and everything up on Mars. You know that—don't you?

So God just flipped the switch, said, 'Okay, guys, I'm going to do a number on you.' And He did. So they met in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December. Three days before the meeting came the worst storm in decades and they had three feet of snow in Copenhagen, Denmark. This year they said, 'We're going to get away from that cold.' They don't want to get caught with all their lies concerning global warming. 'So we're going to Cancun, Mexico, where it's nice and warm.' So guess what happened this year when they were down in Cancun? Record historical low temperatures! So God is saying to the global warming idiots, 'Wake up, folks, I'm up here! You can't control anything, and wherever you go I'm going to flip the switch on you.'

Now I want to cover something here in an article, Drones in the Hunt for Al-Qaeda written by attorney Jonathan Emord, author of Rise of Tyranny and Global Censorship of Health Information.

We are now reaching a point that the technology is coming in where—I have another article here showing this—for mouse embryos in Spain they are tattooing barcodes right on them. So the thing with the invisible tattoo for the mark of the beast looks like more and more reality. God is not going to have that come until just right before the Tribulation begins.

Here's something that can be very disturbing. It reminds me of this little story about the first airliner that people would go on that had no pilot. Everything was going really, really smooth; everyone was happy. They rode all the rough weather and all of that sort of thing, and as it was landing, just to assure everyone, they buckled their seat belts and everything, and the announcement on coming out from where the pilot should have been said, 'Thank you everyone for flying. We are landing now and there is nothing to worry about, nothing to worry about, nothing to worry about. Everything is just fine.'

You talk about United States government budget. The elite will not take down the United States until they have figured alternative funding, because there are what are called 'black items' on the budget. Now the 'black items' on the budget are those things which are not declared. This is how they were able to develop the stealth. And the government deliberately put out things about UFO's so that they would not discover the stealth planes that we were developing. They weren't unveiled until the first Iraq War. Remember, they went in with those stealth planes and just took everything out from Iraq. The radar couldn't catch them, even those big flying wings, what are they, the B-1 bomber? You can't track them. Now here's what they've been doing.

Drones in the Hunt for Al-Qaeda (by Jonathan Emord—(newswithviews.com):

The CIA and the United States Air Force are investing billions to increase the number and improve the technological capabilities of hundreds of Predator and Reaper drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying in the skies of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Operated for take-off and landing from in-theater bases.
That means bases right in Afghanistan.

Pilot station at Langley, Virginia, at the CIA and Indian Springs in Nevada operate the drones around the clock...

Flying around, up so high you can't hear them. Have you ever been out and you've heard even a big jet flying by and you look. 'I hear it, but where is it?' You can't find it! Or a small plane that's flying overhead, you can hear it, but you can't locate it. I remember when I was in Korea we had one exercise as to how the Piper Cubs can come down and almost stop in mid air and you can pick up a message package or give one to them. They come in and it's so quiet and they get down and come down to this point right here and here we're standing and all of a sudden here it is, grab the bag, takes right off. So these stealth planes are something. They get up there 30,000 feet. They have cameras that can virtually take your fingerprint shots at 30,000 feet.

...to operate the drones around the clock in search for terrorist Taliban and other enemies of the United States.

Why don't they do that over the border and tell everyone if you're crossing the border a drone is going to take you out? POOF! Illegal immigration would cease instantly—wouldn't it? Without a doubt! They have the ability to do that.

Now they could use these, and if they gave the warning to Mexico and saying, 'Okay, we have drones up here and anyone who crosses—man, woman, or child, they're going to be ZAPPED! no more! The immigration problem would stop, but there's corruption south of the border and north of the border. The ones, the super elite at the top, we know from Vietnam and the Golden Triangle, because they were bringing drugs into America on U.S. Air Force transport planes. So the super-elite get everything. They get it! That's why if anyone thinks that an election can change this country, they don't have a clue as to what's going on. Now we had an election, they may change a little. They'll let people change it for a little bit. They'll give it a little more time and they go back and change it back the way it was.

So they could do it, but these drones operate around the clock in search of terrorists, Taliban, and other enemies of the United States. Have you read about the Department of Homeland Security? Who are some of the ones they consider potential terrorists or even terrorists?

  • Those who believe in the return of Christ
  • Those who believe that the Bible is the Word of God
  • Those who believe that the super-elite are taking over the world

Fly a little drone over here; they know where you are. And if not, then they have their cell phone brigade out here to tell anybody anywhere you are.

UAVs permit constant eye-in-the-sky observation of terrorists, largely invisible presence, and rapid kill capabilities.

So over here in Nevada or Virginia the man can be there watching all of this go on and he's sitting there with his screen and he gets the order to take them out. He presses a button, the message goes to the UAV—BAM! Down comes whatever ammunition that they have. It kills them. It disintegrates them. There's nothing left with them. They're there.

UAVs are part of a major change in battlefield operations now underway as American forces become leaner, more agile, and far more ubiquitous in trouble zones; depend on far fewer Americans in theater; and permit dogged pursuit of the enemy until it is eliminated.

You wait, they will get an agreement with Yemen and they will go in and zap them with drones. Now they're going to have to give a lot of money to the Yemen government, because just like anything else. 'Well, we know they're here, but we don't know what we could do. Well, what would it take for us to help you with your economy so that you would cooperate with us? And after all, they're killing your people, too, and we could help get rid of them. We could just take them out with the drones. You don't have to worry about your army. You don't have to worry about the police, we'll just take them out.' And if they're in a cave, they could have one of those weapons come down, a seeing-eye weapon, and go right into the cave.

Drones already crowd the skies over the northeastern border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan where Al-Qaeda leaders are believed camped. The military and intelligence communities are fast at work trying to expand the visual camera field.
In other words, get more data, more coverage.

They are working to gather more data despite being overwhelmed already by the data drones retrieve. A single day of drone operations creates enough data to fill every CD and DVD ever created.

Know where you are. What does it say there of the beast? No one can make war with him! Not even terrorist war anymore. Can you imagine if all of this is accomplished on Obama's watch? Oh, bragging rights!

Approximately nineteen specialists must work to evaluate intelligence derived from just one drone. The military and intelligence communities aim to develop software that will sift through the mountains of data for usable intelligence at a much faster rate. Unmanned, camouflaged robotic artillery of different sizes and capabilities...

They will have those all automated, too. Just rot into the battlefield, cover all the terrain, be all right there. At least it'll cut down on the IED things that blow up the jeeps and the trucks.

...and will be far more integrated with air and remote operations. For example, in addition to cameras capable of drawing near images of potential targets on the ground in a much larger swath than is now common, drones will employ more sophisticated eavesdropping equipment.

Now you can't even whisper and they can pick it up. Did you know that there are a lot of things available that you can order on a catalog that you can get that it advertised, 'Listen to what your neighbors are saying down the street.' Yes, indeed! I mean, you can't even have a decent family fight anymore without the whole neighborhood knowing it.

...will communicate select data from multiple air and land drones to remote pilots instantaneously, and will permit coordinated attacks by several drones in the air and on the land against single targets.

Everybody's sitting in front of a computer screen. Remember one of the first games that came out for kids to play, after Pac Man? Remember Pac Man? Jonathan remembers. We used to go to Chucky Cheese and there was the Pac Man thing. You and David used to have contest who could eat up the most Pac Man things. Later on then, it was you had to fight the invaders from outer space—right? Now, here we have the same thing. The invaders from outer space are up there and they can get you. You think you're quiet; they have eavesdropping equipment:

...and be guided into underground hide-outs to detonate weapons calculated to destroy or entomb the enemy without risking a single American life.

And they're 30-40,000 feet in the air.

How many remember what happened in Iran? They have a cave, a big built-out cave where they have those people who run the atomic program over there in Iran. They have their top scientists down there. One day there was a big explosion down in there and no one knows how it happened. One of these bombs, right down! Did they know where it was? Yes! The CIA know what to do? Yes! Could it be that they tested out one of their weapons? Who did it? No Israeli planes, no American planes. How did it happen? How could the Iranians be so sloppy as to blow up the main center where their main nuclear scientists are working down in this protective cave? No one can make war against the beast—huh? Just think when all of this technology is given to a world government. Well, it virtually is, because the super-elite control it, but we don't know it. Later it will be they control it and we know it. Isn't that something?

That truly horrific prospect will soon exist for those who would kill Americans. The new world of military robotics is defining a way for the United States to seek out and destroy terrorist targets whenever they appear and wherever they are in the world. As the technology continues to become more sophisticated and operates unceasingly, terrorists will face their worst nightmare.

All we're doing is helping them go to Allah. It's like one terrorist blew himself up and he got up there and whoever the equivalent of St. Peter is up there, the Muslim standing there with the sword. And he gets up there and says, 'Where are my 72 virgins?' And he said, 'Sorry, son, we just ran out.' Yeah, but I blew myself up so I could be here. Well, you should have solved your sex problems on earth. We have to be practical. So here's what will happen:

They will be beset by thousands of intelligent kill machines that will endlessly track them until they are destroyed. Thanks to extraordinary drone technology, we are fast turning the table on terrorists, making them everywhere the hunted instead of opportunistic hunters and leaving them no safe haven.

So that's good, we get rid of the enemy. But what about when you have other enemies you need to get rid of? Now, you look at all of these things and you need to realize that here's part of the prayer. Sometimes we get wrapped up in so many things that we forget about this, that we are looking for the Kingdom of God, that we want the Kingdom of God to come. And we are every day to pray for the kingdom of God to come.

Matthew 6:9: "'Therefore, you are to pray after this manner... [model prayer] ..."Our Father Who is in heaven... [That's the sacred name of the Father. Our Father! That's why Jesus said in Matt. 23, 'Call no man on earth your father,' that is in a religious sense, because you have one Father who is in heaven above.] ..."Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name…. [First thing we ask for is]: …Your kingdom come...'" (vs 9-10). Not only looking forward to the kingdom coming, but what we are doing is this. We are submitting ourselves to the laws and the commandments and the love of God because He has brought us unto the Kingdom of God, not into it, but unto it. Because with the Spirit of God, who is to rule in our hearts? Christ. So you have those two applications.

  • The coming Kingdom of God
  • The one Who we are under now with Christ ruling in us

And we look to God for everything. "'Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors'" (vs 11-12). Since its daily bread, forgive daily. Why go around and hold grudges against people that you can do nothing about their behavior? Forgive them! Put them in God's hands! If it's a real big problem, say, 'God, I can't handle this. Please take care of it for me.' And keep praying that prayer until God has taken care of. He'll take care of it. He will take care of it!

God's not going to use drones. He's got angels, and He has the seven eyes going through the whole earth. So He's got more understanding and intelligence than all of the drones we've been talking about.

"'And lead us not into temptation... [That means, don't deliver us into trial.] ...but rescue us from the evil one…. [And he's out there working hard and overtime and he's got a lot of helpers out there now, lots of them, through all sections of society.] …For Yours is the kingdom... [it's coming] ...and the power... [No one can go against God.] ...and the glory forever'" (v 13).

So let's keep our eyes on the kingdom. Let's not worry about these drones. God will take care of them, but we need to keep doing what God wants us to do!
