In The News:

It seems that every day in the news, certain trends emerge. Today's trend is centered on the demise of the U.S. Such news shouldn't be unexpected, considering the idea that the Tribulation won't begin at the "flip of a switch", but rather the terminal part of a long continuum - a process which has been ongoing for years.

First we turn to a few news stories from the Middle East:

Syrian troops advanced into north Lebanon on Tuesday, destroying farm buildings and clashing with Syrian rebels who had taken refuge there, residents said.

Another resident said that the soldiers, some traveling in armored personnel vehicles, fired rocket-propelled grenades and exchanged heavy machinegun fire with rebels.

The question becomes, "where is this situation in Syria headed?". The predictable outcome will be another country's rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and another regime dedicated to the destruction of Israel - very similar to what we have seen in Egypt:

Burhan Ghalioun, president of the main opposition umbrella group, the Syrian National Council (SNC), has sought support for the meeting to end with a "national oath,"

A few weeks ago, a few leading dissidents withdrew from the SNC, dismayed by its leadership and the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which draws support from Syria's Sunni majority.

A Jewish motorist barely escaped with his life Monday afternoon after an Arab mob attacked his vehicle as he drove through a Jerusalem neighborhood.

The motorist, an unidentified 42-year-old man, was traveling through Wadi Al-Joz when he was suddenly attacked by dozens of Arabs.

The vehicle was pelted with dozens of rocks as the driver desperately continued to drive through the attack. One of the attackers also hurled a concrete block at the car, smashing the windshield and wounding the driver.

After he reached a safe location, the wounded motorist was evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center, where he received treatment for a wide range of injuries

Israeli forces this week are gearing up for the annual "Land Day" marches by Arabs inside Israel and outside its borders. The event, scheduled for this Friday, promises to be a more severe challenge this year after regional powers like Iran, Hizballah, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas became actively involved in planning the march.

Thousands of people from the Middle East and other parts of Asia have reportedly arrived in Syria and will begin their trek to the Israeli border in the coming days. Similar marches are planned from Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, and from within the Palestinian Authority-controlled territories.

This year, the international effort is focusing on Jerusalem amid claims that Israel is increasingly trying to "Judaize" the city. Most Arabs deny the Jews' historical and religious connections to Jerusalem.

The Muslim Brotherhood and other Arab groups have promised that the demonstrations will be non-violent, but these things have a way of quickly spiraling out of control. And, of course, there is no way Israel can allow the huge number of foreign marchers to actually reach Jerusalem.

Below we find a series of articles out today which point to a variety of ominous signs in the U.S.

The mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about this, but some of the biggest economies on earth have been making agreements with each other to move away from using the U.S. dollar in international trade. There are also some oil producing nations which have begun selling oil in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, which is a major threat to the petrodollar system which has been in place for nearly four decades. And big international institutions such as the UN and the IMF have even been issuing official reports about the need to move away form the U.S. dollar and toward a new global reserve currency.

Over the past few years, China and other emerging powers such as Russia have been been quietly making agreements to move away from the U.S. dollar in international trade. The supremacy of the U.S. dollar is not nearly as solid as most Americans believe that it is.

As the U.S. economy continues to fade, it is going to be really hard to argue that the U.S. dollar should continue to function as the primary reserve currency of the world. Things are rapidly changing, and most Americans have no idea where these trends are taking us.

Whether being leveled by Atheists, Islamists, or members of the far-left faith community, it appears America’s Judeo-Christian foundation is under assault from all angles. Israel and the Jewish people, too, have not escaped persecution at the hands of some usual suspects.

Beck told viewers that both they and God are “under attack.”

In closing, Beck announced that on May 17th, he will ask for a national day of fasting and prayer where Americans can consolidate their faith and efforts as they seek protection and guidance from God.

America, we have an enormous problem. And, it’s a quickly expanding one. Fueled by the palpable fear of We-the-People that is now observably apparent from arrogant elected members of both the Executive and Legislative branches of the US government, Orwellian bills denying the American people their Constitutionally protected rights are now being routinely crafted and passed by an increasingly draconian “ruling—not governing—political class.”

All over the United States, school children are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to "alternate locations" during terror drills. These exercises are often called "evacuation drills" or "relocation drills" and they are more than a little disturbing. Sometimes parents are notified in advance where the kids are being taken and sometimes they are only told that the children are being taken to an "undisclosed location".

Do we really need to have "relocation drills" where kids are rapidly herded on to buses and told that they must surrender their cell phones because they will not be allowed to call anyone? Our schools more closely resemble prison camps every single day, and it is our children that are suffering because of it.

The markedly minority Marxists and Maoists have been incessantly and, for years, feverishly working to take over our country and install a Stalinist/Hitlerian-styled government. In fact, in 2010 at least 70 members (we suspect there are probably more) of the US Democrat Party were listed as members of the American Socialist Party. But, this is the first time they have claimed the unconditional power to do so.

Recently, leftist John McCain (R-AZ)–one of the GOP “Sleeper Cell” members?–partnered with leftist Carl Levin (D-MI) in greatly increasing the Executive branch’s power over the American people. The ‘McCain-Levin US citizen Imprisonment Bill’ effectively does away with the Fourteenth Amendment’s “due process (under the law)” clause which mandates: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Obama signed the bill as quickly as possible and then immediately issued a signing statement outlining his new powers. In it, he states: “I have concluded that section 1022 provides the minimally acceptable amount of flexibility to protect national security. Specifically, I have signed this bill on the understanding that section 1022 provides the executive branch with broad authority to determine how best to implement it, and with the full and unencumbered ability to waive any military custody requirement, including the option of waiving appropriate categories of cases when doing so is in the national security interests of the United States.”

In the small town of Bluffdale, Utah, not far from bustling Salt Lake City, the federal government is quietly erecting what will be the crown jewel of its surveillance empire. Rising up out of the desert landscape, the Utah Data Center (UDC)—a $2 billion behemoth designed to house a network of computers, satellites, and phone lines that stretches across the world—is intended to serve as the central hub of the National Security Agency’s vast spying infrastructure.

Once complete (the UDC is expected to be fully operational by September 2013), the last link in the chain of the electronic concentration camp that surrounds us will be complete, and privacy, as we have known it, will be extinct.

“A long time ago” in this nightmare fairytale come true was August 5, 1992. That’s the day when Nancy Pelosi (CA) introduced a concurrent resolution in Congress (H.Con. Res. 353), dictating that the United States of America should reform all domestic and foreign policy to adhere to the agreements, develop a national strategy to implement Agenda 21, and regularly report to the United Nations our progress on that path. (freedom21santacruz.net).

"Undaunted by slow going in Congress, Nancy Pelosi returned to the house floor on March 29, 1993, and introduced a joint resolution (H.J. Res 166) to renew the call for the United States “to assume a strong leadership role in implementing…Agenda 21 and other Earth Summit agreements.”

Pelosi’s revolutionary resolutions were picked up by an incoming President Bill Clinton, who on June 14, 1993, with only six months in office, signed an executive order establishing the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD)—which would carry out the exact functions called for in Pelosi’s earlier resolutions.

The transition could be seen in full view some 19 years later when on March 15, 2012, President Barack Obama issued an Executive Order creating the White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities. As venerable Internet writer Henry Lamb points out, “the next day, another controversial Executive Order, National Defense Resources Preparedness, vastly expanded the President’s power to control virtually all resources in times of emergency”.

With the worldwide creep of Agenda 21, it becomes easier to see that for all of his arrogant bravado, Barack Hussein Obama is just another cog in the big wheel when it comes to handing control of the USA over to the control-crazed UN.

I found your use of the word draconion very interesting and of course quite appropriate! We know what it means but check this out (yep, Im getting really far out here guys, but just roll with it for a second).
Draconian means a harsh penalty for a small infraction. Origins Greek language. Now look (wikipedia just for a start) at eberything else draconian. Heavy metal band from Sweden? Humanoid aliens in a movie, dragons in several different entertainment forms, books, movies etc. wait a constellation, hmm..satan frequently identified as a winged serpent, dragonlike maybe?
Remember the church lady from saturday night live and her little saying..."could it be satan?"
I rest my case! Like we cant put two and two together? Or even one and one? Well only if its man and woman and they have a marriage liscence! Oh drat, that doesnt work anymore either. Silly old me, they sre bussing my grandbabies where? Undisclosed location? whats that old saying? Practice makes perfect!
Dr. No, Dr. Who, where are you? Send backup immediately please! Monsanto where is rhe solyent green when you need it?
Things have gotten so absolutely ridiculous. Used to be you could just flee to canada or mexico. Cant even do that anymore, at least not across the border by foot or car. Those iranian backed mexican drug cartels are waiting with american guns supplief by our alphabet federal agencies.
2 plus 2 again? Really?
If the cartel dont get you, the earthquake/volcano might!
What the "records" of immigration for the time period the big O Bummer might have left ken ya are missing? Imagine that!
Oh puppet masters, the strings, we can see the strings. Oh no the emporer is not wearing clothes! Shhhh! Watch out, the place in utah knows I had a gmo modified lunch substance and had one of my eight glasses of toxic laced flouridated water to wash it down!

Ally said...

My rant continued.....Im almost at the place where I think those lunatics who constantly talk about reptilians might be onto something. Certainly seems like something possessing our authority figures and it sure aint common sense! Lets see...ancient lizard serpents who can change form at will, influence or possess men, wait I think I read about something like that before, maybe about a girl, I think she had a piece of fruit, got her boyfriend to eat it and things havent been the same since!
I'm not sure if I would have been happier if I was less inquisitive. Men hearts failing them from fear? dont worry, we have new healthcare coming!and lots of new pharmaceutecals. Eat right and take your vitamins, oh wait you are gonna need a prescription for vitamins soon!
What ruger is sold out of guns? For the whole next year? Govt buying all the bullets, this year alone more than enough to for every msn, woman and child in america?
Seriously guys, how much farther can we go? How much longer
can we continue like this? What is this world gonna look like tjis time next year, next month, even next week? He's coming, he's coming, even if he delays, he is coming. Soon. Why hadn't he come yet? Why? Because he doesnt want to lose one precious soul. Not one, not even one! Because he wants my two beautiful daughters to make it in, but they dont believe yet, he wants my grandbabies that I cant see, to make it in. He wants your unsaved to make it in! Great comission people, the great comission. His people perish for lack of teachers, lack of shepperds. The wolves are devouring!
Im not righteous, none of us are. Its inly through him, his blood that we are washed, are cleansed. I am so thankful I know him. Aren't you?
I come off as flippant sometimes, and yes Mrs. C, I dont always use language you may approve of, that gives a "good witness" but Um not witnessing to the church folk! I can hardle stand to be in a room most of them. Lol! And im sure they feel the same way
about me. We all have different parts to play in the body of Christ and some days I guess im, I think you know where im going here lol!
Church, on our knees! Because we haven't been doing it voluntarily, me thinks we shall soon find ourselves doing it from neccessity! I beg you all to go with Glenn Beck in this May17 fasting and orayer. Just remember, he will never leave us or forsake us! If he is with us, who can be against us? Actually, I think rhats translated wrong. It should be...if he us with us, who cares who is against us!
Who loves you baby? Besides Jesus, and your mama? Thats right! Maranatha!

Hi Ally~

Dear Sis, I don't think anyone has ever judged you have they? You have always been you and we love you just for who you are and where you are :) We have prayed for you, checked on you and many have chatted with you no matter where you are.

See, one thing I don't get is this group reflecting some hostility at times toward what Gods word says. Seems to me that when others want to go off and explore conspiracy theories to the fifth power, no one says anything, but actually more add to the shared thoughts which no matter how one slices it, takes us brothers and sister farther from Gods word. We are always to see what Gods words says about things. That is not something the Caver's created but God did. What is the problem with that part of following our Father?

So I ask those who keep taking shots at Mr. and Mrs. C, Why? Why? I think the question should be with all this Christ like knowledge that many have been sharing over the past year that I have witnessed, what is so wrong with doing what your Father has asked in these last days?

Clearly, there is a problem here carrying over from other outside forums. I am saddened that many of you who have had the opportunity and the email to contact the Cavers directly, have chosen not to do that off the group but to constantly attack, especially over Isaiah 17 and the other scriptures pertaining to it. God has different purposes for us all. So will you keep attacking things that are for God and keep supporting those things that are counter to his word? I say this as a general question to all who seem to keep doing this.

Many of you, and I have clearly seen your postings on other forums and I have to ask, why is all this time spent in hate and divisiveness on a subject that is supposed to be something we are all going in the same direction about, all for the glory of our Father and saving others? It's mean, cruel and hurtful. Yes, we know you obviously can't stand your brothers and sisters who you constantly condemn, what is the outcome you are desiring here until you stop? Honestly, as stated many times, you have made your hatred known so long that we know who you are.

Constantly, there have been others from the past, and they are still here even though they post as Anon's who spewed hate, vulgar words, and lies and even encouraged another brother to commit suicide. Yet, the Cavers stand alone for supporting what Gods word says in these last days. OK? Does attacking them make you feel better? When does this end? Don't shoot the messenger, it sounds like your issues are with God and his word because we can't wrap our minds around what these delays are. I get that, but I don't think attacking one another, just as it has become acceptable on these other rapture forums is loving, not one bit. I find it lacking courage to stand up for what is right.

GG said...

Ally, you be you. No one has said anything that I know of about you or your style. We must be who we are and God will meet us right where we are at. The question one has to ask are we being helpful or hurtful to GOD's WORK, not OUR WORK?

In the meantime, I have always stood exactly where the Cavers stand and that is on God's word too. We are not to follow what man says but what God says. When in doubt we are to check it out! Plain and simple, without fear and to learn and grow from that. If this is supposed to be a conspiracy site, OK just let some of us know who have chosen to do what the will of our Father desires. I expect this constant hurt from those who are not saved and follow the world, not from those who claim to know God and be saved. You can't have that spirit in you. Either you follow the world or God. Again, this is a general statement to all who seem to not seek that resolution about these outstanding issues you have.

So, it seems to me we have a split here. Fine, I am asking for the love of God, since God's purpose is not of hate and dissention, can we please pull together in these last days and love one another and help? I have to start questioning why it is not automatic in some of these poster's hearts. What you speak is in your heart, period. It's wrong, and you know it. We have more important things to worry about instead of having a pile on with the Cavers. Those doing this, this long should be ashamed. Contact them and be done.

I say, instead of taking pot shots, be loving and write out your grievances to the Cavers off forum. Make peace. Time is running out. Enough is enough. God's word will win and in the end you will be standing on the very side one keeps spitting venom about. Was it worth it for a moment of gratification on another brother or sister?

Love doesn't hurt. I don't want to hear one more person say this is fake. Either you have the love and the heart of the Lord or you don't. Not one foot 1/2 in and 1/2 out of this world.

I would say the same thing for any of you who were constantly being attacked. This is wrong. Again, Enough is Enough! I expect I will be a target for this too, but you see, my heart is for peace and love. If I have to go down for that and to stand up for another brother or sister who is being attacked then I will. It's the right thing to do. We are adults not a bunch of school yard bullies. More importantly, Jesus didn't acted this way, no matter what happened to him, what is our excuse? If this is what this group is going to be about then I can no longer take part in it.

I find it interesting for Glenn Beck to be speaking about Christians and God coming under attack from many quarters. Glenn is a mormon who believe that their god is a man, and their jesus is Satan's brother. Would he not also be attacking Christianity?

Well, alot of comments here.....

AND YET, as LONG as the DOLLAR drops,
stocks will RALLY !!!

i think EWI has made this point MANY MANY times. IT IS NOT the dollar
that will crash, NO, NOT at all.

It is the EURO that is about to crash. And the more BEAR stories
I hear about the dollar, the more BULLISH i become on the dollar.

In a way, I am HAPPY to see all
this negative talk about the dollar, CAUSE that means we are
on the VERGE of a HUGE dollar rally.

Remember, markets tend to do what
you LEAST expect out of them.
People seem to forget that !!!!

Stocks were down, but NOT convincing enough to matter.
Dollar was UP, Gold, and Silver
selling off.

I am currently watching a WEAK
correction to the upside of an
otherwise VERY SICK looking group
of mining companies, ie, XAU, GOX,

I believe Gold and Silver are about to crash.....hard....

and the Dow with them

we will see.

Looks like I have to have a trans-echocardiogram now. They need a better look. I either have a cord/cable rupture on my MVP valve or a vegetation growth on it? Neither are good apparently. One would for sure require surgery.

Like Diana I am hoping for the rapture prior to surgery. lol

I would covet your prayers.

Dutch Treat said...

WV-Diane, I also will have you in my prayers. When Eternity comes, all of this will be just an inconsequential blip on the radar screen.

Caver said...

Diane and WV, continued prayer from here.

Scott said...

WV - please keep us informed of your status. Will most definitely be praying for you.

mary said...

Diane and WV, keeping you both in my prayers.

Oh my Ally I do trust you feel so much improved from your rant. Hee ha ya made me smile and I culd see ya meant nothing bad at all, no not at all so don’t you fret none. That’s what God made friends for, to lend an ear and offer a little cheer as we share in our times of affliction. :) You got it right, Jesus is coming and nothing is gonna stop him whatever tricks the old devil gets up to a pulling them strings. Mean time Ally, when things start getting ya down remember what the great apostle Paul tells us to do in the good book in Philippians chapter 4 verses 6 thru 9
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Ok Ally? God bless ya with his peace coming into your heart, and now you read on a little more and get real blessed by the great mans words of encoragment. :)

Ally o said...

Goodness graciousness!
First, WV will lift you up at church tonight! And all of you!
Second, I LOVE THE CAVERS And yes, I am screaming it! I LOVE THE CAVERS! Both of them are mighty people of GOD, they believe and stand firm on the WORD and I simply ADORE both of them beyond measure! Have I made myself totally clear on this. If not, please reread this paragraph until it sinks in!
As for conspiracy theories, lions and tigers and bears oh my! Frankly a lot of this stuff is so ridiculous, its unbelievable. I believe I mentioned that in my rather tongue n cheek post. Unfortunately, a lot of it is true also :( now as to what is truth and what is false....only God knows 100% for sure, cuz I can tell you for
certain, nobody else does!
I camt believe how asleep the church is! Really even with simplest most basic stuff! Its simply awful how many bible believing people are so isolated from whats really going on out thete! Thats why it has been so EASY for satan to do what he wants. Yes God is ultimately in control! But our ignorance and free will is what has gotten us whete we are in this country right now. Forinstance, despite geo. Bush claiming he is a christian and a bunvh of people taking it hook line and sinker, look at what he really did to this nation. Lay the groundwork for all this stuff thats being implemented now! Oh agenda 21 as an example. At that level, they are all on the evil ones payroll. People wake up! Why do you think they cant or wont produce a viable candidate for 2012? Hello?
its pretty bad when a masonic mormom has to ask the mation to pray! Really, thats pretty bad! But God will even use an ass, no im not cursing, a dumb animal to spesk the truth if no one else will. And I probably fit in thst category myself!
So im not trying to start any kind of consternation here between anyone! I think that we really need to see the truth and leam on the word and start using the sword on the enemy not against each other. And that is why very few people really post here now. Bevause the amount of closemindedness and squabbling. When I first came here, there were msny articulate people who didnt neccessarily agree with each other but we certainly tried to be open to possibilities based on the word of God. This is why I get frustratef with "church"
So I will part withthis story! Preacher goes to nigeria, tells the people about the tribulation, get right with Jesus etc. A man comes up to him after the service and said "tribulation? My brother they are killing us NOW for believing in him!We are in tibulation!" Not THE tribulation but still tribulation.
See my heart is for the unsaved! And im a little rough around the edges. Dressing pretty and going to church on sunday are fine. But do you realize when the rapture comes, a lot of people are going to be sitting here with a bewildered look on their faces?

Scott said...

Yep - Its why I like how Renald Showers defines his terms - into the "visible church" and the "invisible church" - which are two separate categories. The 'visible church' including those who attend church etc and go through the motions, and those truly saved individuals who have committed to Christ ("invisible church")...There is a lot of overlap, but its far from 100%.
