Has The End Game Begun?

Today's title comes from Joel Rosenberg and as usual he has a timely piece relating to current activities in he epicenter and PM Netanyahu's public statements regarding Iran:

[Also see transcript of an interesting interview with PM Netanyahu over these issues in this link]

Over the past several weeks, I have been hearing from current and former senior Israeli officials and advisors at the highest possible levels, that the showdown with Iran is entering the critical ”end game” phase. I’m hearing from people with direct knowledge of the plans that war could come in 2013.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is beginning to prepare the public in Israel and around the world for a “military option.” This is why he appeared on CBS’s “Face The Nation” on Sunday (see excerpt oftranscript below).

The PM called the Iranian a “messianic, apocalyptic” regime bent on genocide, a reference to the Shia eschatology Khamenei holds that Iran must annihilate Israel and the U.S. to usher in the reign of the Twelfth Imam. Netanyahu also called the incoming Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, a “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” who has bragged in the past about negotiating with the West while secretly advancing nuclear enrichment. What’s more, Netanyahu vowed not to “wait too long” to stop Iran.

Expect more public diplomacy by Netanyahu and his team in the weeks ahead.
This is one of the reasons why the PM is sending his most trusted foreign policy advisor, Ron Dermer, to the U.S. to serve as Israel’s ambassador. Dermer will work to ensure U.S.-Israeli relations are strong at this critical moment. Dermer (who grew up in Miami Beach and is a native English speaker) will also explain Israel’s principles, objectives and actions to the American people before, during, and after any crisis with Iran.

Haven’t we heard warnings like this before? Yes, we have. But war was avoided in the past because various countries, including Israel, have used a wide range of covert operations to slow Iran’s progress towards building The Bomb. However, Israeli leaders are concerned that that they have few options left in their bag of tricks, and that with North Korea’s assistance, Iran is about to cross the red line.

Thus, officials here are running out of hope that war can be avoided. 

They want the U.S. and other world powers to intensify economic sanctions and all other measures necessary to force Tehran to abandon its nuclear plans, give up its enriched uranium, and shut down its enrichment facilities. But they are deeply concerned that the so-called “election” of Hassan Rouhani – widely but wrongly perceived to be a “moderate” and a “reformer” — will cause officials in Washington and elsewhere  to lower their guard and actually ease up pressure on the Khamenei regime, rather than crack down harder. And they see Iran running out the clock. Khamenei says no nuclear negotiations can happen before Rouhani takes office in early August. But then they will say Rouhani needs time to build a new team and get up to speed, and so forth.

Privately, senior Israeli officials are now saying if they don’t see decisive action by the world powers to stop Iran soon — at least by early fall — they are prepared to take action of their own. Indeed, it would appear that a majority of the Security Cabinet are now prepared to authorize such action. Meanwhile, Israel continues to run homeland security drills, preparing first responders and civilians alike to be ready for a barrage of missiles and terrorist attacks should war come soon.

As the world reacts to the Trayvon Martin case, including prominent rappers calling out the media over its race baiting, reports detail around 160,000 Russian troops were called to ‘combat readiness’ following an Israeli strike on Russian-made missiles in Syria.

First up is the new revelation that Israel was behind an attack on Syria that targeted Russian-made anti-ship missiles. According to the Israeli National News sources within the U.S., Israel recently launched an attack on Russian missiles that were apparently sold to Syria and stationed at a critical point within the country. Until now, it was unknown who had initiated the bombing that had rocked Latakia on July 5th.

Now enter new reports surfacing from the Russian Defense Ministry on orders of Vladimir Putin that the largest military ‘state of full combat readiness’ drill is taking place with around 160,000 troops ordered to report from all corners of the military. Specifically, the translated reports detail how Putin is calling together not just Armed Forces of Russia troops, but all forms of long-range aircraft, 70 naval ships, bomber and fighter aircraft, and so on.

According to a syndicated Russian announcement:
“On Friday, during a meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu Russian, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an unexpected military drill, urging all forces to enter a state of full combat readiness on the night of July 13.”

In other words, these reports says that Putin is essentially assembling the entire military in the largest such event since the Soviet Union. This is coming in from the Russian language version of Forbes and other Russian sources translated to English.

Is this massive ‘state of full combat readiness’ initiated on July 13th just a training exercise with no further intention, or is it related to to the attack by Israel on Russian-made missiles in Syria? Whether this is truly the initiation of a massive conflict between world powers or not, it’s certainly worth the attention of the media and general public.

 While it does take a lot of digging to sort through all of these Russian language announcements and get to the bottom of the story, it’s much more important than what George Zimmerman’s lawyers ate for breakfast this morning.

The real significance of the Martin-Zimmerman trial and what is being missed by the media:

I have tried to stay away from this trial and all of the emotions that surround it, as it has little to do with prophecy. However, there does indeed appear to be an underlying agenda in play which makes a lot of sense in the current world that we find ourselves immersed in - an agenda that involved dividing America and precipitating divisions such as race. The articles below are worth contemplation and reflection:

“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.” — Edward Bernays, in Propaganda (1928).
“Professionals in my field work for a client. They put their finger on their client’s competitor and say, ‘This is the enemy. How can we paint him as a horrible cartoon?’” — Ellis Medavoy, retired propaganda operative — who is interviewed extensively in THE MATRIX REVEALED.

That outmoded concept?
It’s outmoded for a reason.
It’s been scrubbed from the record.

Mass media can’t really deal with individuals. It’s not possible. Mass media can’t really get down to the essentials of what an individual IS. It doesn’t work. Putting too much attention on distinct and unique individuals, apart from stereotypes, would actually DESTROY THE WHOLE ILLUSION PRESENTED BY MASS MEDIA.

So Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman become symbols of groups, and the hostilities broaden. And repulsive operatives who make their living pushing these symbols show up and do their work.

What’s the end game? A society fractured into opposing camps, your basic nut house, where every group ultimately looks to government for answers, money, help, favors, deals.

The psy-op moves all the way into dependance. And that was always the point of it. That was the plan for “reorganizing” a nation.
In the long run, those honorable groups who have labored for just change are forgotten. They fade into oblivion. What takes their place are the delusional ones, and the ones who are consciously run, from above, by planners who want to see this kind of mangled society.

It’s important to understand the root: promoting a nation as a collection of groups. This IS Collectivism at work. Collectivism isn’t done by considering a country one homogenous mass of people. Not right away. First you need competing and hostile groups. You encourage them to present themselves as cliches, as animations, as actors in a play.

You move into phase two when you show these groups that their best chance of success is to get help from government. That’s the key. It doesn’t matter whether a group hates government. So what? You bring them around to thinking government is their best shot.
And, of course, government complies. Government holds out a helping hand. Money, hope, favors. You’ve now funneled the energy of groups right into the official bureaucracy. The problem solver.

You’re not, for example, telling a group it should start an urban farm and grow its own food. You’re not telling them how to start their own businesses and actually make them work. You’re not telling them how they can buy land and live in a community. You’re certainly not telling them the whole group concept is flawed and they should—each person—discover what it means to be an individual.
Individual power, action, vision is completely off the table.

These stereotyped groups are actually training grounds for membership in the bigger group: a whole society absorbed in government.
It’s all preparation for the ultimate lesson: the needs and demands and entitlements of the many obliterate the needs of the individual.

But Zimmerman-Martin is part of a much larger program: identifying so-called racial characteristics and cementing them in the mind. White=certain qualities. Black=certain qualities.
At bottom, this is one more way of insisting that the individual no longer matters. It’s a way of claiming that what matters is the group an individual belongs to. In this instance, skin color defines the group.
The primacy of the group over the individual is the true devastating operation in America.
Individuals have freedom. Individuals have independence. Individuals have potential power. These elements are anathema to fascists.
Groups only have agendas. They seek fulfillment of those agendas through government. That kind of partnership increases, in the long run, the dominance of government.
Underneath it all, this is what we’re talking about here: individuals must go, only groups should remain.

Perhaps today! Come Lord Jesus!

Praying for the fullness of the Gentiles to come to Christ sooner rather than later.

This all seems to be heading directly towards the mark of the beast and the one world order. It blows my mind how quickly things are coming together!

Scott, I was recently reading about The Feast of Trumpets that is coming up the first part of September. How do you feel about perhaps the Rapture occurring then? It is also known as the feast that "no one knows the hour or the day." It just feels like things are really coming to a head. I know better than to "pin" my hopes on one certain day ... it's just that it would be wonderful to think our Blessed Redeemer is coming sooner than later. Still, His will be done, in His best time.

Everyone, please read Psalm 91. It has really blessed me. Love to you all!


Scott said...


My personal feeling has always been that the gathering up will occur at a date that is unrelated to anything 'historic' or any of the Jewish 'dates' of significance. I believe the church is in a completely separate dispensation and given that the date of the gathering up is completely unknown, it won't be tied to any of these dates of significance.

Having said that, I do believe that there are many many many parallels to Jewish custom and dates, etc - but to me, that is a separate category. But who knows. I certainly don't so take whatever I say with a grain of salt :)

Bulls are going crazy this AM, dow at fresh records....I can't understand why the GOVERNMENTS of

The prophet Ezekiel VERY CLEARLY
stated that this attack would come
UNSUSPECTED and without warning
by GOG against Israel....38/39 EZ..

Mr. Assad is NOT desperate at all.


He is playing a timing GAME with
Russia to coordinate an attack on

He is DENYING the airstrikes, of course he is, so that WHEN Russia
attacks the Jewish state, it will
BE a surprise attack.

Wall Street PIG Bulls are of course
CONVINCED that no such attack is

They are paying RECORDS for the dow. three days IN A row.

I think the game is real. I believe Russia is about to attack.

we will see.

Stephen >>>>>>>>>>>>

Stephen said...


IF RUSSIA should attack, then what ?? Is it POSSIBLE that the
rapture is on the other side of
the 38/39 Ezekiel conflict ??

I mean, we are hearing Russia is
getting ready to do SOMETHING,
and still no rapture ??

I am confused as to what is next.

How do you feel about this...??

please reply.

Stephen >>>>>>>>>>>>>

David H said...

Maybe the rapture takes place, then in all the chaos Russia and co. will attack Israel.

If this is the case then we could be really close to going home :)

Geepers Watcher.......

If this is what you want, seems you should start your own Blog, not piggy-back on someone this one.

Scott isn't preaching any particular view, just posting and allowing comments on today's happenings and news as they pertain to prophecy.

Please forgive me if I'm wrong, but your entries appear to be trying to hijack it for your own purposes and views.

Scott said...

Watcher - it does appear that you are pushing an agenda. OK - I watched that video (first of all - there are so many better video presentations of these data, and secondly, it takes this guy forever to make a point)

One cannot prove biblically that the trumpet blast has anything to do with the feast of trumpets - thats 100% speculation. According to Hal Lindsey, it is a reference to the trumpet blasts that would be given during Israel's exile from Egypt, sounding the alert that they were breaking camp and moving locations. The last trumpet blast was a prolonged sound so the Israelis would know that it was time to go. This explanation makes the most sense to me, but it too is speculation.

Mrs.C said...

Interesting "watcher" how you continue (moving up a comment section) to post your video links.

Pretty sneaky posting a link for this nonsense, rather than posting a statement on your misguided false beliefs. But then again, you know that, dont cha. If you posted your beliefs, then you know they would be challenged, and or deleted.

Interesting on the previous posts, how you skipped over my comments to you that you are the SAME person/persons that have been plaguing Brother Scotts blog for years now with fake names, anons etc. All to push your agenda of Mid-Trib untruth. Of course you are unable to provide a Scriptural basis for you false beliefs, that promote fear, untruth and strife. There is NO HOPE, no BLESSED HOPE in your false beliefs. You ignore and disparage what our Savior Jesus did for us on the Cross with these false beliefs.

Its not to late...instead of "videos", as recommended before, Pray, invite the Holy Spirit, and READ HIS WORD FOR YOURSELF...

Scott said...


I have a VERY hard time placing the Rapture after Gog-MaGog. During the Church Age, we believe by faith, not by sight. During the entire Church Age - God has been consistent with that, as He hasn't revealed Himself in such a way. However at the time of Gog-MaGog He reveals Himself to the entire world. To me, that is very very inconsistent with the Church age.

Mrs.C said...

Oh, and BTW "watcher", this second video link you posted of this guy is just as bad as the "trumpets" one.

The Tribulation HAS NOT begun yet as this person claims, AND the Rapture DOES NOT occur during the Trib.

The Church is NOT going to go through the Trib....

Scott said...


There are some great sites out there, with forums that involve robust discussions on the merits of different views of the Rapture of the Church Saints. From pre-trib to post-trib. I would suggest you take your interests in that 'debate' over there - as that's not what we are about here.

We're more involved in watching the signs of the Coming Christ and the end of the age. Of course the back-drop to that is the overwhelming biblical evidence of a pre-trib rapture and that is where I stand.

FWIW I'm not really interested in the debate anyway. Frankly, at this point, it bores me to death. Its all been said before - hashed and re-hashed, its the same old arguments every time, and to me personally its a waste of time.

If you are mid-trib or pre-wrath, or whatever - great - go for it. My mission in life isn't to convince people of the pre-trib rapture (although as stated, there is overwhelming evidence that the other sides never adequately address - never...ever....ever....But I'm not getting dragged into that again, as its a waste of time.

But there are some good sites out there where you can have some very interesting discussions - a long time ago I engaged in such (before getting bored with it). If I have time I'll post some links

watcher said...

Scott- Don't bother to look up for the links, this watcher is just passing by and no intention to debate.

Thank you for the short stay.

And as a watchman, continue with your work, alarm/warning is a good wake up call to those who are asleep.

Be bless.
