Not since the Y2K debacle at the end of 1999 have I heard so many warnings of trouble coming as I have for 2015. Yet, with two months left in the year some people are already claiming the warnings were just false alarms.
We were warned about the Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriages, the end of the shemitah year, the day of atonement, and the four blood moons, but these dates all came and went without any calamities. So what do we conclude now? Were they all just false alarms?
Whenever the Lord reveals the future, it rarely happens like we expect, but that is not His fault. We sometimes hear things He never said and fail to hear things He said. Our own thoughts can get so loud they drown out what God is saying. So we need to pay extra close attention to what He says and tune out all the other voices. What He said will come to pass exactly like He said.
We still have over two months to go in the year, but we are already seeing major shifts around the world during the past six weeks, as listed below.
1 – NATO Has Lost Control of the Skies in the Middle East
NATO air power has dominated the skies over the Middle East ever since the organization was formed back in 1949, but that just came to an end. Russian air forces moved into Syria and have now taken over the skies. The Russians are having their way and NATO is unable to do anything to stop them. They would if they could, but they can’t and the Russians know it. The gig is up. The power shift has already started.
Here are some important details reported by the Financial Times:
Russia’s Mediterranean fleet, for example, bristles with its most powerful anti-aircraft missiles — s300 systems — which have been fitted to all but its very smallest ships. For NATO it creates what military tacticians refer to as an anti aircraft area denial problem — a no fly-zone — but one directed against the West.
For the first time, NATO is thus having to practice without assuming it will have total control of the skies.
“It’s something entirely new,” says Gen Mercier. “We have now a situation where we are exercising in a scenario where NATO does not necessarily have the balance of military power.” (Source: Financial Times)
2 – IMF Signals Approval Coming Soon for Chinese Yuan
After posting an August 11 press release announcing a 9-month delay in their review of which currencies to include in the SDR basket, the International Monetary Fund has now surprisingly announced they are ready to proceed with a decision next month. The 9-month delay would have postponed the review until September 30 2016 (Source: IMF Press Release).
That by itself is big news, but even bigger news is that they have already indicated next month’s vote by the the IMF executive board is likely to approve the Chinese yuan for acceptance into the SDR basket. The following excerpts come from a Bloomberg report yesterday.
International Monetary Fund representatives have told China that the yuan is likely to join the fund’s basket of reserve currencies soon, according to Chinese officials with knowledge of the matter, a move that may make more countries comfortable using the unit or including it in their foreign-exchange holdings.
The IMF has given Chinese officials strong signals in meetings that the yuan is likely to win inclusion in the current review of the Special Drawing Rights, the fund’s unit of account, said three people who asked not to be identified because the talks were private. Chinese officials are so confident of winning approval that they have begun preparing statements to celebrate the decision, according to two people.
The Washington-based lender is reviewing the composition of the basket, with staff members due to present their recommendation to the fund’s executive board for a vote as soon as next month as part of a process scheduled for every five years. (Source: Bloomberg)
This is sure to cause increased volatility in currency markets in November. With this announcement, the world just took a big step closer to ending the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency for International trading. Adding the yuan to the SDR basket would significantly weaken global demand for dollars causing the value of the dollar to drop sharply. At the same time it would significantly strengthen global demand for the Chinese yuan. Ultimately this shifting will bring a transference of wealth from the west to the east.
It also sets the stage for what I have called season three in my previous post, The Final Four Seasons of the U.S. Dollar. Season three comes after a sudden devaluation of the dollar, which still has not happened yet. During season three, I saw the Fed doing everything they could to prop up the dollar, but it kept going down, down, down until it ultimately dies in season four. The shifting has already begun.
3 – Increased Pressure on Israel to Divide Their Land
Israel has come under increased pressure to divide their land, including the eastern part of Jerusalem, for the formation of a new Palestinian state within Israel. In mid-September, Palestinians started making violent attacks against innocent Israeli citizens and the attacks have continued, including stabbings and running over people with their vehicles. The following details were published by the Jerusalem Post.
Israel is currently facing five different types of security incidents: Terrorist attacks involving firearms, stabbing attacks, violent riots, the stoning and firebombing of vehicles, and attempts to breach the Israel – Gaza Strip border.
There has been an increase in the number of lone terrorists carrying out stabbing attacks, as dozens of them have been recorded over the past few weeks. The main cluster of these attacks has taken place in Jerusalem, but the past week has proven that nowhere in Israel, from Afula in the north to Kiryat Gat in the south, is immune.
Signs that tensions were reaching a boiling point were evident for a while, most notably over the surge in stoning and firebombing incidents in Jerusalem, which developed into actual attempted murder only over the past few weeks. (Source: Jerusalem Post)
Instead of condemning the attacks, the U.S. funded Palestinian Authority blamed Israel for taking actions to stop the murderers and threatened that Israel’s “daily killings and incitement against President Mahmoud Abbas would lead to a big explosion.” (Source: Jerusalem Post)
As I shared in my previous post, Secretary of State John Kerry blamed Israel for the attacks. Once again, America is on the wrong side, fighting against Israel and putting pressure on them to divide their land.
The pressure on Israel has forced the Israeli government to take actions to defend and protect their people. If this pressure continues, it could easily escalate into military actions.
4 – Islamic Population Shift from Middle East into Europe
An Islamic invasion of Europe is now underway with an estimated 70% of the migrants being males between the ages of 18 and 45, raising serious concerns about national security.
In Germany, thousands of outraged citizens have taken to the streets to protest the entry of Islamic migrants and their government’s decision to allow 800,000 of them to re-locate from Syria to Germany. (Source: Reuters)
In a span of 24 hours 12,000 Islamic migrants arrived in Slovenia coming from Croatia.
Migrants began streaming into Slovenia last Friday, when Hungary closed its border with Croatia. Before then, they were heading for Hungary – a member of Europe’s Schengen zone of visa-free travel – and then north and west to Austria and Germany. Sealing the border diverted them to Slovenia, which is also a member of the Schengen zone. (Source: Reuters)
The video footage shown below, posted by Pamela Geller, shows hundreds of Islamic men crossing fields near the Slovenia/Croatia border marching toward Austria.
Sweden said on Thursday it expected up to 190,000 migrants this year, putting unprecedented strain on a country famous for welcoming refugees but planning to house many in tents this winter. (Source: Reuters)
This population shift is very bad news for Europe. History shows Muslims who are devoted to the teachings of the Koran make violent attacks on non-Muslims to force them to submit to Allah and Sharia law. Europe might never be the same again.
5 – United States Betrayed Israel with Iran Nuclear Treaty
Although it has been in the works for months, President Obama just approved the nuclear arms treaty with Iran on Sunday October 18, ignoring the protests of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The treaty is now in effect and will not be stopped. Iran has the green light to proceed with everything they have wanted to do in their quest to destroy Israel.
This treaty with Iran marks a distinct shift in our relationship with Israel. It is an act of betrayal of our friendship, which exposes Israel to great dangers in the days ahead.
President Obama’s anti-Israel policies are sure to have severe consequences for the United States. As I shared in my previous post,
Obama Makes Concessions Against Israel, America Suffers Greatly, history proves America suffers greatly whenever we turn against Israel. This treaty puts America on the wrong side by helping Israel’s enemies develop the weapons they need to destroy them.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:9)
Whatever hopes Israel had for avoiding this treaty are now gone. Since the United States refused to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the burden now falls on Israel to take action. We should not be surprised to see them do something soon.
6 – Big Losses Announced for Germany’s Largest Bank
The only thing holding the EU together has been the economic strength of Germany. Investors have been willing to bear with the trouble in other European nations because they have the backing of Germany, but now Germany appears to be cracking too. Their largest bank, Deutsche Bank, recently announced a staggering $7 billion loss for their most recent quarterly earnings. Deutsche Bank’s losses combined with their enormous exposure to derivatives could cause a crash in Germany that would cause the European Union to crumble. Then we would see a whole lot of shifting in Europe and around the world.
7 – Liquidity Crisis Hit the Banking System In September
Prophet Neville Johnson recently shared a revelation in which he saw something happening in August 2015 that would cause the wheels to come off in September. He assumed this was regarding the economy, but was not told for sure. Now that September is history, the numbers show a serious financial crisis happened, but was covered up by an injection of funds from the U.S. Treasury.
Financial institutions cover their liquidity needs by trading U.S. treasuries in short term repurchase agreements, which is called the repo market.
Something blew up in mid-September that required a massive short term injection of Treasury collateral into the repo market.
The blame on the general stock market plunge was cast on the Fed’s inability to raise interest rates. However that seems to be nothing more than a clever cover story for something much more catastrophic which began to develop out of sight in the general liquidity functions of the global banking system.
Without a doubt, the graphs above are telling us that something “broke” in the banking system, which necessitated the biggest injection of Treasury collateral in history into the global banking system by the Fed. (Source: Investment Research Dynamics)
In other words, a $405 billion bailout was required to cover an unprecedented liquidity crisis in September. The impact of what happened has been temporarily postponed by the bailout, but the financial system suffered a giant crack.
8 – Unholy Alliance Between Obama and Pope Francis
Pope Francis met with President Obama at the White House on September 23 2015. Although we don’t yet have visible evidence, three prophetic warnings have all identified something very evil happened in that meeting, which will cause bring great suffering in the years ahead.
Dr. Patricia Green, founder of Joy Ministries Worldwide, saw this meeting was a pact with the devil. She said, “They will make a pact that will seal the fate of the United States of America. My vengeance will be poured out from this point forward. There is no turning back.” For her full warning see my previous post, Obama Makes Pact With the Devil on September 23 2015.
I received a similar warning about this unholy alliance from Ali Winters.
“Pope Francis and Barack Hussein Obama, have fomented plans for control of rogue nations, including America; nations who have not aligned themselves to follow the New World Order program. Test patterns are being carried out now, perpetrated by their evil schemes. But soon, very soon chaos, upheaval disruption in cities, school lockdowns, false flags are coming… all implemented to move people to cry out for government help, government intervention.”
“Millions will follow their evil agenda, falling into the trap of satan. Soon after, Pope Francis will usher in the man of perdition.”
A third witness, Bette Stevens, shared the following testimony, confirming that something very significant happened when President Obama met with the Pope.
In September, I watched and listened to the message of the Pope. The Lord had already made me aware of an underlying meaning to his message that if we didn’t listen carefully, we would miss. As I watched the Pope and the President come together, I heard these words:
“The abomination of desolation. Secret meetings being done. Secret rituals having already taken place. Many American citizens will be slaughtered and the river of blood will flow, just as many in Israel will be slaughtered. Many will come to realize from My word, that if I, the Lord, did NOT intercede, then ALL OF MANKIND WOULD BE WIPED OUT.” (See full story)
It might appear things are moving at a snail’s pace, but these events show a significant shifting has started. I believe we will look back on 2015 as a turning point, the beginning of big changes. With two months left in the year, it is already shaping up to be a major milestone in world history.
