Syrian President Bashar Assad is reported by Persian Gulf sources Tuesday, Jan. 31 to have threatened to start up armed hostilities in the region if the UN Security Council Tuesday night endorses the Arab League proposal for him to step down and hand power to his deputy.Other Middle East sources reported that the Lebanese Hizballah has also shown signs of military preparations in the last few hours. And the Russian flotilla berthed at the Syrian port of Tartus, led by the Admiral Kutznetsov aircraft carrier, also appears to be on the alert for ructions in the wake of the Security Council Syria session.DEBKAfile reports that the military flurry in advance of the critical Security Council session included US naval movements. Sunday, Jan. 29, the nuclear submarine USS Annapolis, escorted by the guided missile destroyer USS Momsen sailed through the Suez Canal to the Red Sea. This looked like a Washington warning for Tehran to keep its military fingers out of Syria if the confrontation there escalates.It was not the first time Assad has threatened Syria's neighbors. On Aug. 9, 2011, four months into his savage crackdown against protesters, he warned Turkey that, six hours after the first shot was fired against Syria, he would "destroy Tel Aviv and set the entire Middle East on fire."
Israel has set up a specialist commando unit designed to carry out missions deep inside enemy territory amid growing consensus in government circles that military strikes must be contemplated if economic sanctions do not halt Iran's nuclear programme.
The "Depth Corps" has been organised with the aim of co-ordinating deep penetration operations in other countries at a time when the defence ministry acknowledges that the number of covert Israeli operations abroad has increased significantly in the last year.The decision by India and China to continue importing Iranian oil, around 35 per cent of the country's total sales, will seriously hinder the attempt to choke off the revenue stream of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's regime.Israeli officials say that any military action must take place by the end of summer to prevent Iran moving more of its nuclear capabilities underground.
Two ships of the US Navy, the nuclear submarine USS Annapolis and the destroyer USS Momsen have passed through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea. Although their destination is confidential, they are now getting dangerously close to the Persian Gulf.The ships’ passage was a major operation for the Suez administration as due to safety reasons they had to close off the canal to all other traffic and even shut down the bridge, disrupting the link between the banks for some four hours. The traffic on the roadways alongside the canal was also restricted, Interfax news agency reports.There are no reports regarding the destination of the vessels, but the news come amid the ongoing crisis in the relationship between the US and Iran. There is mounting speculation that the Annapolis and the Momsen are heading to the Persian Gulf to reinforce the US naval forces already present in the region.
“…it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.) ”

A grim report just issued by the Finance Ministry that is circulating in the Kremlin today says the United States Clearing House Interbank Payments System (CHIPS) has ground to a virtual halt signaling that a major global economic collapse is currently underway and could very well likely enter into the dreaded “freefall zone.”To if anyone in the world, even the powerful US Federal Reserve, has the power to avert this coming catastrophe, this Ministry report warns, it is unlikely due to the cascading collapse of the global derivative market due to the mounting gridlock in liquidity that US billionaire and Obama confidant Warren Buffet warned back in 2003 were “financial weapons of mass destruction.”Failing to be noticed by the Western peoples about this global economic collapse is that it has been, in all probability, a “planned event” due to occur so as to initiate a New World Order that has long been sought after by the elites, but was condemned by the ancients who warned that the uniting of our world as an economic dictatorship would lead to every human being having to obtain the Mark of The Beast thus bringing this present age to its end.
In a Western world devoid of morality, and lacking the knowledge of the ancients, it is beyond doubt that this coming economic collapse will take them by complete surprise (as the last one did) as they have been trained like dutiful slaves to only adhere to those voices leading them to their doom.
But for those who know the truth, the time is nearing an end for preparing…it will come much sooner than anyone will believe.
The number of unemployed people in Europe is reaching record highs as the economic crisis unfolds into one with significant social consequences.
In eight member states alone, over 30 percent of young people under 25 are out of jobs. The worst affected continues to be Spain where half its young are jobless.The unemployment rate in the eurozone is the highest recorded since the euro was launched in 1999. Some 16.3 million people are unemployed across the 17 single-currency-using countries - the equivalent of almost the entire population of the Netherlands.
Williams says a hyperinflationary depression will hit the U.S. by 2014 at the latest. He thinks when it hits, it will cause a “financial economic Armageddon.” He recommends gold, silver, food and foreign currencies as protection. Williams goes on to warn, “The U.S. dollar remains highly vulnerable to massive, panicked selling, at any time, with little or no warning. The next round of Federal Reserve or U.S. government easing or stimulus could be the proximal trigger for such a currency panic and/or for strong efforts to strip the U.S. currency of its global reserve currency status.”
The MSM relentlessly spins a picture of a good economy, no matter what terrible news come out. It is a gigantic disservice to the readers and viewers. The constant spin job will leave them totally unprepared when the next crash comes, and one is headed our way—count on it.
Catholics are fired up over new rules implementing Obama's health care reform law forcing Catholic universities, hospitals, and charities to provide insurance for their employees covering contraception -- even though that violates church teachings.
"When you push people of faith and you tell them the government is going to knock down the wall of separation of church and state and overreach like the Obama administration, you've got a war on your hands," Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, told Fox News.
In an extraordinary move this past weekend, New York Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan and other archbishops throughout the nation had their priests read letters denouncing the Obama administration policy from the pulpit at Sunday Mass.
"Never before has the government forced individuals and organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience," Dolan said in a web video that takes the battle online. "This shouldn't happen in a land where free exercise of religion ranks first in the Bill of Rights. How about letting our elected leaders know that we want religious liberty and rights of consciences restored and the administration's mandate rescinded? We can't afford to strike out on this one."
The central issue is government intimidation of and control over religious institutions. It is government's overriding of the consciences of Catholics and members of other denominations who oppose abortifacients and sterilization.The 2013 deadline for Catholic institutions to conform to the health care mandate is the proverbial governmental foot in the door for controlling religious institutions -- actually, for controlling all people of faith who disagree with the administration's stance toward abortion.For the truth of the matter is that the U.S. government's intrusion into religious organizations, if not halted at this stage, will continue to press even harder for even more sacrifices of conscience. The next step on the part of the government will almost certainly force all religious institutions to provide access to health care insurance that provides coverage of surgical abortions. The administration's demands are only the first salvo in what is bound to be a continuing battle between the federal government and churches if ObamaCare continues its trajectory and is not dismantled.
By insisting that the state override matters of conscience and faith established by the Church, the U.S. federal government will have followed the examples of tyrannous regimes which have sought to seek to establish government power over the Church. It will essentially be requiring what totalitarian regimes everywhere require of the Church -- namely, no separation of Church and state. There will be only the State.
A plan to provide each of India's 1.2 billion citizens with a unique identification number has been praised as an essential programme to impose some efficiency on India's infamously inept bureaucracy.
But its opponents have said it is ripe for abuse. The government could use it to spy on its citizens and criminals could steal the data and create false identities.
Since the plan was launched in mid-2010, about 110 million Indians have queued up at data-processing centres across the country to have their irises scanned and their fingerprints recorded.It is unclear how all this information will be stored and shared, but it has done nothing to allay the fears of activists who foresaw the UID scheme turning into an Orwellian nightmare that could target, rather than help, India's poorest citizens.The paranoia is not entirely misplaced. The NPR emerged out of a scheme in the early 1990s to identify illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. More than 40,000 Bengali-speakers were later deported within a three-year period.
One of my other interests besides being a prophecy watcher is West Virginia Mountaineer University Football. Today is national letter intent signing day for recruits. Folks who follow this are obsessed and glued to recruiting message boards today. Many follow it religioulsy year round. They fret about which 18 year football star will sign with their school. Kids change their minds at the last minute and break the hears of the home team fan. It is crazy. I follow it mildly as a guy who loves his home team and his state.
Juxtapose that obsession and it is an obsession for many against what is going on in the world that we are witnessing as prophecy watchers. It is certainly fine I believe to have other interests and hobbies. However most folks are wrapped up in their own little world and are oblivious as to what is coming.
They are utterly clueless as to what is just around the corner. It fits perfectly with what Jesus said about returning as a thief in the night.
Without a Christian world view and a dispensational, premil, pretrib viewpoint the world and even much of the church are not watching, not longing and not expecting the imminent return of our Lord and savior, Jesus!
If many of the signs are pointing to the start of the tribulation then how close is the church to going home?
Scott posts article after article of pending ME Biblical prophesied war, global economic collapse, global government, rampant church apostasy, evil, rumors of war, rising earthquakes, ecumenicalism, the fall of Damascus in a day, Syria in the news, Jerusalem becoming a burdensome stone for all the world, etc etc. etc.
Yet the world obsessess over football, over hollywood, over American Idol and over the stock market and their 401 K...
Jesus also said he would come back as in the days of Noah, when things were going along as business as usual. When I said yesterday things are going along kinda of in a lull I guess I was thinking we are still in a business as usual mode. How much longer will it be business as usual? Today many are caught up in their obsession. Tomorrow the world may coming crashing down when the church goes home. Today pry yourself away from your "obsession" long enough to punch your ticket for heaven. Surrender to the one who can pay for the penalty for your sins. Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me." Let Jesus blood cleanse you from your sins. It will be as though you never sinned. That is the only way anyone can enter heaven. It is not by good works or going to church or keeping the 10 commandments. All of our good deeds are nothing to God. He expects perfection to enter heaven and no man can ever enter on his own merits. Jesus paid the penalty we could never pay for our own sin. We simply need to confess our sin and invite him into our hearts. Revelation 3:20...He is knocking at the door of your heart and wants to come in and live his life in you. Simply invite him in. You will not be disappointed. Maranatha!
Amen, WV. Well said!
WV - THATS AN AWESOME POST.....Thanks so much for that - as usual, you nailed it brother. God Bless
With all of our discussion yesterday about Mossad and the former Mossad Chiefs statements, look what this headline says! WOW!
DID SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN REVEAL…MOSSAD CHIEF'S SECRET VISIT?
OH YES SHE DID!!! And so did the others!!! His visit was this week...and they all just outed him!
YES! I saw that! In fact I was going to post it but I didn't have time - VERY interesting isn't it?
WV, great post. Just as in the days of Noah, the world will continue to ignore the signs and warnings. The one difference I see is that unlike the people of Noah's day and also with Sodom and Gomorrah, the people left behind after the Rapture will get a chance to repent and turn to God. So while we hope and pray that people will be saved before that, it will take an event like the Rapture to shake people out of their doldrums.
And yet, uncertainty REIGNS in the
near term outlook with EWI. I
cannot SAY for sure that agree
with the comments above.
I need to see more data.
Stocks MAY be topping here, but
too soon to say. Nasdaq at NEW
HIGHS. BUt DJII not at new highs.
Often times when a market is topping, speculative indices like
the Nasdaq TEND to top last.
BUT NOT ALWAYS...
My point ??
IT DEPENDS if the DOW stays under
12, 876.....that level is critical.
BULLS continue to PUSH to try to go
thru....but so far have failed.
And yet, bears CANNOT get anything
going on the downside....
12, 500 CONTINUES to be critical.
ANY break of that will be very
negative. In contrast, if 12,876
gets taken out, this market is
going ALOT HIGHER.
Something to think about.
Amen wv, we should still go on with our everyday lives, but always anticipate his arrival.

MORE THAN INSTERESTING Brother Scott! We were just talking about Mossad, and they are here having secret meeting with the top Intelligence, Military folk about Iran? And then the ALL OUT HIM! Whew...
Had a chance to have Glen Beck's radio program on today while working.
He gave SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN the complete works for her treachery to Israel. He's the only one I saw/heard to call her out on it...stupidity beyond innocent stupidity....completely betraying at the highest levels the trust that must exist for nations to talk to each other about national defense.
The Caver household is fuming at this one....and Obama won't say a word, much less apologize to Israel.
Caver what did Beck say about the Feinstein "gaffe"? Was it on purpose in his opinion or just a slip of the tounge? If it had been the VP I would guess slip of the toungue but not a Jewish senator. Of course there are a lot of liberal seemingly self hating Jews sadly in Israel and the USA. I just don't get it? How could a Jew vote for Obama for example?
Fortunately for Israel Bibi does not fall into that category by a long shot. He seems to be a great man appointed by God for such a time as this.
Knowing what I know about Feinstein (and I'll leave it at that) - I'm guessing it was a slip of the tongue. Or just plain ignorance.
Feinstein, to me, has been one of those blind, cut-the-military-at-all-cost, clueless members totally out of touch with reality. That's the way I had it figured until Mrs. C showed me that after she said it, another member of the admin confirmed he had met also.
Now I just don't know...but know this Administration owes Israel a huge apology.
Bibi is an interesting character. Many, many years ago it slipped out that something happened....dream, felt, vision????...but something where he knew in his soul that he would be Israel's last PM and it would be a time of great turmoil and trouble.
"...This administration owes Israel a huge apology"
Let me add to that by saying
Scott, now that another day has passed...and more "stuff" came out....those were not slips and there won't be an apology.
Those little "slips" were deliberate...IMHO.
Bibi has said now that Israel won't ....read that WON'T...base their defense on America's participation. I read that as they don't trust us. Then they won't commit to more than 12 hours notice. Why? So we can't stop them or warn Iran with enough time to stop/slow the attack.
Now, two intelligence slips and no apology from anyone...congress, intelligence, military, or administration.
Those slips were intentional. They were a message, IMHO. The US will divulge Israel's timing and secrets to Iran, to delay Israel's strike, to keep the price of oil low, to help Obama get elected.
Yea, you're probably right. If so, it is disgusting. And prophetic IMO
