Russia To "Liberate The World From U.S. Occupation"
Russia and its ally China are planning to replace the United States as the world’s leading power. Part of that plan involves ensuring that the US dollar is no longer the world’s reserve currency… which will spell economic disaster for this country.
A State Duma deputy, the head of the Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship of the Russian State Duma, Yevgeny Fyodorov, told Pravda.Ru of his impressions from visiting the APEC summit in Vladivostok. According to him, the meeting showed that the U.S. gradually loses absolute power in the world economy and politics. The power and influence of other countries, such as Russia and China, grows against such a background.
Russian President Vladimir Putin clearly expressed his attitude to the dollar as the world reserve currency. In fact, he offered the countries of the world to start building a large number of regional currencies as an alternative to the reserve system of the dollar. This is a strong step and a strong move, including the initiative to switch to mutual payments. He also said that Russia and China had already switched to the system and he urged other countries to follow the example. This shows that the world begins to change fundamentally, and Russia’s role at this point is to become the leader in changing the world. I would say that Putin as the leader of the national liberation movement in Russia, demonstrated himself at the event as a leader and provider of ideas for the world national liberation movement against the system of occupation, which was formed after 1991 not only about Russia but also China and many other countries.
Today, the world begins to unite against the colonizer – USA. For the time being, it is a conceptual and preparatory process, but it takes place. In this regard, I would call the preliminary results of the meeting in the Far East the meeting of the future members of the world national liberation movement to free the world from the U.S. occupation.
The shift in global power centers is economic and political at present. If Barack Obama is re-elected and continues his mission of destroying the US military… the stage will be set for war… a war that America will have little chance of winning.
The Federal Reserve's Latest Scam: QE Shell Game
Now you see it. Now you don’t. QE III is the Fed’s latest scam. A previous article quoted PIMCO’s Bill Gross. He called it money printing “till the cows come home.”Doing it won’t resolve festering economic problems. They’re getting worse while Bernanke, the ECB, Bank of England, Bank of Japan, Congress, Obama, and like-minded world leaders fiddle.
After crisis conditions erupted in fall 2007, one scam followed another. Occupy Wall Street is right. “Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.” It hasn’t stopped and won’t until either people rebel or the whole house of cards Greenspan/Bernanke built collapses.
Obama’s $787 billion stimulus went mostly (in the form of tax breaks) to corporate favorites and rich elites already with too much. QE II followed QE I, then Operation Twist, and now QE III.The Fed provided generous back door funding for troubled European banks. Its balance sheet exploded. At over $2.8 trillion and rising, if it was a country it would be the world’s fifth largest.
One failed program followed another. Economic duress deepens. Current US median income is lower than when the National Bureau of Economic Research declared recession over in June 2009. Perhaps for Wall Street, not Main Street.Record numbers of Americans need food stamps. More join their ranks monthly. Real unemployment approaches 23%. Average unemployment duration is near a record high.
Overall contraction is accelerating. Eurozone countries are deeply troubled. So is Britain. What’s coming looks worse than 2008. Deficits keep rising. Budgets are unsustainable. Growth is nonexistent. Bailout costs are rising.The implication for world economies is clear. They’re interconnected. What affects Europe spreads everywhere. Expect worse ahead than 2008.All major world economies “are entering recession or slowing growth simultaneously, leading the socio-economic and financial world into a black hole.”As a result, GEAB “maintains its June 2012 Red Alert” ahead of worse coming. It cites key factors without modern precedent. They’re heading world economies for a “double shock.”
19 Signs That America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Giant Surveillance Grid
You are being watched. The control freaks that hold power in the United States have become absolutely obsessed with surveillance.
They are constantly attempting to convince the American people that we are all “safer” when virtually everything that we do is watched, monitored, tracked and recorded.Our country is being systematically transformed into a giant surveillance grid far more comprehensive than anything George Orwell ever dreamed of.
The following are 19 signs that America is being systematically transformed into a giant surveillance grid….

Anti-Austerity Protests In Spain
Protesters clashed with riot police on the streets of Madrid on Tuesday (25 September) as Spain braces itself for a fresh round of spending cuts linked to a potential bailout.
The initially peaceful demonstration turned violent when protesters tried to tear down barricades and threw rocks at riot police, which responded with rubber bullets. Police said at least 22 people were arrested and dozens injured.Violent protests are new to Spain, where people have in the past taken to streets in peaceful rallies, as with the "indignados" movement.
The violence on Tuesday comes ahead of a fresh round of austerity measures to be unveiled on Thursday in what the European Commission has called an "upgrade" of spending cuts already announced earlier this year.
Pestilence seems to be a growing concern on a world-wide basis - exactly as we would expect:

Wow..thanks Scott,there is so much going on prophetically every day now.I really just want Jesus to come back soon,I'm tired of this wicked world and all of its corrupted ways.Alot of people are still blinded by what's going on and that really bothers me,I pray continually that they will get saved and soon because time is running out.
Just one question. Is this blog related to Prophecy Update news feed?
I enjoy your blog and commentary .
Have been following prophecy since the 70,s In fact it's what convinced me to become a believer.
We are indeed in that time . Israel is the timepiece.
It is amazing to me how many "Christians" don't have an actual Christian world view. They call themselves Christians but are indistinguishable from the secular world. Prophecy is literaly unfolding daily before us and people are stuck in their normalcy bias.
Today's meeting at the UN has been on my mind these past few days leading up to it. I am not sure if you had these links but wanted to share with you. One is the video and the other the PDF of Irans statement. Getting ready to review, just thought to send this over :) I am not sure if there is anything that pertains to prophecy, but we shall see.
Have a blessed day!
Sorry..here are those links..
Great video by Pastor J.D. of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe (Hawaii) that discusses how intercession & getting people saved SPEEDS THE TRIGGERING THE RAPTURE.
So if you’d be wondering what we servants & stewards of the Lord are to be doing while we await His imminent Rapture of us (“occupy ‘til He comes”) – these may be part of what we are to do.
For those who right now haven’t a moment to view this video, the following is a written transcript of the video’s portion that discusses this intercession & praying for people’s salvation --
Beginning @ the 19:09 minute video mark, this:
“ ‘Yes God is sovereign. Yes, God is in control – but He factors into His sovereign plan the attitudes and cooperation of man.’ Knowing this – Peter says, we can hasten His return.
“ ‘Pastor, what are you saying? Can we actually speed up the Rapture?’
“I believe so. Now here’s how I get there. And just indulge me a moment longer. I’ll close with two specific ways to speed up the Rapture, and two specific benefits that will come as a result.
“The . . . first way is simply to pray, pray for the Lord’s return. Pray ‘Maranatha’. What does ‘Maranatha’ mean?
“It means, ‘Lord come quickly.’
“That should be at the end of every single prayer. My wife has taught our daughter to pray & when my daughter prays she always says, ‘Maranatha, Lord, Maranatha.’
“Hoah! I’m thinking you know how God answers kids’ prayers more than ours, right? . . . . Now why are we to pray that? Well, because when we pray in this way we are praying according to God’s will. In other words, it is God’s will that we pray for His return. It’s God’s will that we pray, ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.’ And so you’re praying in alignment with the Will of God.
“So the second way to speed up the Rapture is to share the Gospel. Now here’s why: It’s because that means, the more people that get saved, brings us closer to that last Gentile that will get saved. And when the fullness of the Gentiles is complete and that the last person gets saved – guess what? – we are soooo out of here. Pau (‘pau’ – pronounced ‘pow’ is Hawaiian for ‘finished’). I mean, it’s done. The Trumphet sounds, and the dead in Christ will rise first, and we who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. So (1) praying for the Lord’s return, and (2) sharing about the Lord’s return – it not only has a purifying affect on us (1 John 3:3), it will also have a positive impact on us. This is by God’s design.
“How so? Well, because my focus will be on what I have to look forward to, and when I do, it will make what I’m going through easier to get through. The reason being is that now I’m so heavenly-minded, I can’t help but be of earthly good in all I do –knowing that I’m just passing through.”
God bless you all!
And also, THANKS to Ally for the heads-up on Pastor Lee E. Thomas and his teaching on “Praying Effectively For The Lost”.
I’ve checked out a video of him teaching this and I’m now reading through this book (i.e., the free PDF). http://72827.netministry.com/images/PEL_English.pdf
I too find his Pastor Thomas’ teaching solid & biblical. I emailed the links to this video to my pastor here (in Hawaii) and He’s found the teaching to be “right on.” An intercessor friend of mine has also found it to be “excellent” and indeed what the church should be doing right now as we await His Return for us.
Perhaps the Lord’s plan for the church in these closing days -- is to so intercede and facilitate the salvation of so many people in this late hour -- that Satan will actually be relieved that we’ve been raptured and taken out of the way because we’ve been robbing his dark kingdom of far too many of its captives?
Anyway, here are the links to that Pastor Thomas video:

God bless you all as we await AND OCCUPY ‘til His soon and imminent return. Maranatha!
Oh CB-I'm so thankful it was helpful! And I'm glad you got confirmation on its Biblical soundness! It boosted my prayers and my expectations on results!
Oh how I love Pastor JD too! When I feel down, he lifts me up with his constant excitement for the appearing of Jesus!
Man are we getting close aren't we?
C.B.,thank you for the synopsis of those points from the Farag vid! I saw it too and was REALLY blessed! His teachings on Romans has been AWESOME too.
He is really a blessing. My un believing Jewish husband has been listening with me and its so cool how CLEAR JD Farag preaches the simple gospel! I love his testimony.
I found out my husband has actually writen him to discuss certain pointsm Pastor Farag is a God send!
