Tyranny Is Here And It's Here To Stay. Good News/Bad News

The story regarding the Navada rancher who is currently engaged in a stand-off with the federal government is highly symbolic of many prophecy related themes (this is also a strong theme for today's news) on many levels. All you have to do is view the videos - see for yourself. 

1. In arguably what was the last truly free country - we see evidence of tyranny every day, this recent example is simply that - the most recent example. This alarming situation grows worse by the day. 

2. There will be no reversal of the growth of totalitarianism and tyranny as we approach the Tribulation. 

3. However...And this is a big "however" - the protests and the passion displayed by freedom lovers helps to confirm one thought that I have been having for several months now and it hinges on the scripture below:

2 Thessalonians 2:5-8

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

As a referesher on this scripture, let us recall the significance of this scripture and the relationship to the gathering up of the Church Saints. [as a footnote - many good folks who try to "disprove" the pre-tribulation nature of the gathering up usually use this solitary scripture (incorrectly) to disprove the gathering up in that time-frame. Interestingly, in this effort, the vast array of other (and more important/germane scriptures) get completely ignored while the solitary focus remains on this scripture. When I teach prophecy and the gathering up, I don't even "need" nor "use" this particular scripture in such descriptions because of the vast array of other, more "primary" and relevant scriptures].

Having said that - it is clear that only the Holy Spirit can restrain evil here on earth. To quote from "Signs of the Coming Christ":

Here, the "restrainer" clearly refers to the Holy Spirit's presence in the Church, as this interpretation represents the best answer to the grammatical, contextural and theological questions in 2 Thessalonians. Other possibilities as to the identification of the restrainer, such as human government or some powerful human figure seem highly unlikely. Understanding the role of the restrainer further confirms that it must be the Holy Spirit residing within the Church: first, this restraint must represent worldwide influence which suggests omnipresence; second, the restrainer must have supernatural power in order to be able to restrain such potent forces as worldwide apostasy and the emergence of the Antichrist; third, the restrainer must have some logical reason for ending the restraint of lawlessness and the ability of the Antichrist to seize absolute power. There is simply no other likely choice than the Church, including the presence of the Holy Spirit as representing this restrainer (2,3). In addition, the scripture speaks of the Holy Spirit as the One who restrains evil (4), both in the world (Genesis 6:3) and in the heart of the believer (Galations 5:16-17). 

Many of us have noted that - although prophetic developments occur daily now - it seems that there is a supernatural "restraint" keeping the lid from blowing completely. I personally have come to the belief that the "New World Order" cannot proceed beyond a certain point because of the types of protests seen in the videos below - which again - are highly symbolic. These protests are gaining serious momentum as people begin to rise up under the burden of this tyranny.

Thus, we have the "good news" in the midst of this growing tyranny.

As long as the Church is present on earth, it is very hard to imagine this tryanny as succeeding - at least not without a protracted long and blody civil war (and we see no 'early' obstruction to the rise of the antichrist in the scriptures. There is simply too much protest and simply too many of "us" around for it to suceed. 

We understand that the context of this passage in 2 Thessalonians refers to a restraint of the Antichrist and his rise to power - but I suggest that the presence of the Church would also prevent any success of global totalitarianism in a more general sense. There are just too many of "us" around and most of "us" would protest vigorously for freedom - just as we see below.

The restrainer must be removed before these plans can be completed. That seems more and more obvious by the day. 

Once the restraint is removed - both spiritually and physically - this "New World Order" will progress at light speed and will be embraced by the vast majority of those left behind. There will be little to no obstruction of these efforts.

They will have their way following the gathering up - and "they" have absolutely no idea what they will be facing at that point. 

[The videos tell the story]

Bureau of Land Management agents assaulted a cancer victim, set a dog on a pregnant woman and tasered Ammon Bundy during a confrontation yesterday as the dispute between Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, his supporters and the feds threatened to boil over.

Video of the incident shows BLM agents exiting their vehicles near the intersection of Gold Butte Road and state Route 170, a few miles from the Bundy ranch. The BLM claims they were responding to a BLM truck being struck by a protester during an earlier incident. Protesters claimed the agents were there to “punish” them for daring to violate a “First Amendment Area” set up by the feds, outside of which free speech is banned.
Armed with attack dogs and taser weapons, the BLM agents attempt to push the protesters back.
Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy, was hit by a taser but supporters managed to pull out the barbs before he could be incapacitated.
Cliven Bundy’s sister, Margaret Houston, was also thrown to the ground by a BLM agent.
“I have 11 children, I’m 57 years old and they threw me to the dirt….I was just taking pictures, I just said get out of here,” said Houston, a recovering cancer victim, later telling a news station that she was also hit by a vehicle.
Asserting he was prepared to die for his land, another Bundy family relative stated, “I just saw federal agents throw my aunt on the ground, I saw my cousin get tased three times, I saw them pull dogs and sick it on a pregnant woman….I got hit by multiple vehicles because I wanted a couple of questions….this is America and they are the aggressors, we are not the aggressors.”
Protesters chanted “no BLM” as the standoff came to an end and BLM agents began to leave while being yelled at to “get out of here!”
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, “serious bloodshed was narrowly avoided” during the confrontation.
The Bundy family is currently under constant surveillance by around 200 armed federal agents in a military compound near the ranch. Authorities are enforcing a law that forbids grazing rights on federal land under the justification of protecting an endangered desert tortoise. Bundy and his supporters insist that the spat has nothing to do with unpaid grazing fees or tortoises and everything to do with an out of control big government asserting its power over patriotic Americans.
The feds have rounded up 352 of Bundy’s animals so far. Armed militia groups are now heading to the area to express support for Bundy while making assurances that they only intend to document the situation and have no interest in sparking violence.
Yesterday, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval blasted the feds’ handling of the situation, adding that the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ “tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution.”
The Bundy family came face to face with the consequences of violating the free speech zone on Sunday when Dave Bundy was arrested for taking video footage from a state highway of BLM agents rounding up his family’s cattle. Video footage later proved that armed snipers had their guns trained on the family during the incident.
Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev. also publicly issued a statement expressing “great disappointment with the way that this situation is being handled.”

[Another video worth watching]

Government is using environmentalism to confuse the public and the Left/Right paradigm to divide the public so they can enslave us in an Agenda 21 future where we have no property and no rights. The last rancher — “the last man standing” — across the Mojave Desert to the Pacific Ocean, Cliven Bundy, is in a fight for his rights and your rights against a federal bureaucracy that’s out of control.

I’m from Nevada and trust me when I say there is a long and deep hatred of the BLM there. Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Clark County, Nev., and his family have run a ranch there for well over a 100 years. Their cattle have fed off open range grazing freely, until 1993, when the US government decided they wanted to extort Bundy by charging him fees to let his cattle feed on a ranch that he oversees. Now, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has moved in with officials armed with machine guns, who are surrounding the ranch and forcibly removing the owner’s cattle, according to the rancher’s family. This is with the help of hired cowhands. Shame on them. Bundy won’t go down without a fight – you see, he’s fighting for his family and his Constitutional rights and he’s willing to go down for it. He’s not alone by any means… this whole situation could turn into another Ruby Ridge or Waco — the Feds are making their fascist point: we own all of the land and you can pay up or have it seized.
After 20 years of court battles, the BLM finally got a corrupt judge to issue a federal court order to have Bundy’s “trespass cattle” forcibly removed with heavy artillery, the family said. Heavy handed doesn’t begin to cover it here.

“The battle’s been going on for 20 years,” Bundy told theWashington Free Beacon. “What’s happened the last two weeks, the United States government, the bureaus are getting this army together and they’re going to get their job done and they’re going to prove two things. They’re going to prove they can do it, and they’re gonna prove that they have unlimited power, and that they control the policing power over this public land. That’s what they’re trying to prove.”
Bundy said the government has brought everything but tanks and rocket launchers.

I’m sick of this. I’m sick of the Feds breaking down our doors with SWAT teams in the dead of night. I’m sick of warrantless search and seizures. I’m sick of them seizing our property and forcing us to prove innocence to get it back. I’m sick to death of the spying and bullying. And I think the rest of America feels the same way. These jack booted thugs are taking away this family’s livelihood that they have owned and worked for since 1870… now they’ve arrested his son. Bring on the Range War you asshats. I wish I was back in Nevada, I’d be standing with the “Red Dawn” supporters out there. The Feds are saying the protestors violated a “First Amendment Area” that was cordoned off by these brown shirts. WTF? What the bloody hell does that mean?Hundreds told the goons they could stuff it and protested any way.
This is the fricking EPA Marxists at work over the endangered desert tortoise. More Agenda 21 forced upon the people – more government regulation and control. These radical environmentalist thugs are cheering all this. You are evil and we’ve had enough.

“We’ve had enough, we’re going to take our land back, we’re done,” said Bundy’s wife, Carol Bundy, adding that the rally was held “to show that we are not standing alone. People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power.”
More than 100 supporters violated a crudely taped off “First Amendment Area” to rally in support of the Bundy family, erecting two flagpoles with the words “We the People” attached, above a flag which read, “Liberty Freedom For God We Stand”. The first amendment area stood empty, with one sign nearby declaring, “1st Amendment is not an area.”
“I grew up on this ranch. This is what we knew,” said Margaret Houston, Cliven Bundy’s younger sister. “It’s got nothing to do with the cattle and the tortoises. It’s about taking our rights — power — and it’s wrong.”
“Right now it looks like the movie Red Dawn,” said, Ryan Bundy. “Right now we’ve got 200 plus federal agents up there in a military compound that they have put together and they’ve got snipers….everybody’s armed, and they’ve been monitoring our ranch with high-tech surveillance equipment….it was never about the grazing fees, it’s about control.”
Ranch manager Derrel Spencer warned that a “revolution” was brewing unless a solution could be found to settle the dispute.
As we reported yesterday in an article that has already garnered over 4300 comments, Bundy’s son Dave Bundy was arrested on Sunday by BLM officials after refusing to follow a dispersal order as he filmed cattle from a state highway. According to Dave’s brother Ryan Bundy, snipers had guns trained on them throughout the incident. Feds claimed Dave Bundy had violated the ludicrous “First Amendment Area,” outside of which free speech is banned.

I would ask these Feds how they sleep at night? How do you justify this and live with yourselves? Have you really pledged all to the government and have forgotten what it is to be a free American? Obviously, you’ve made your choice. Well, mine is made too and I stand with the Bundys. After his son’s arrest, Cliven Bundy posted a statement on his website which read, “They have my cattle and now they have one of my boys. Range War begins tomorrow.” Damned straight Cliven – they stepped way over the line. They arrested his son and threw him physically on the ground for taking pictures. The BLM said they took Dave Bundy into custody following his “failure to comply with multiple requests by BLM law enforcement to leave the temporary closure area on public lands.”
This is what arming the Fed to the teeth brings and don’t kid yourselves, the Bundys are not an isolated case. They are coming after many of us and this is just one line in the sand. This is Obama’s new homeland military force in action:

“They’re carrying the same things a soldier would,” he said. “Automatic weapons, sniper rifles, top communication, top surveillance equipment, lots of vehicles. It’s heavy soldier type equipment.”
His wife, Carol Bundy, said that roughly 200 armed agents from the BLM and FBI are stationed around their land, located about 75 miles outside of Las Vegas. Helicopters circle the premises, and the airspace and nearby roads remain blocked.
“We’re surrounded,” Carol Bundy said. “We’re estimating that there are over 200 armed BLM, FBI. We’ve got surveillance cameras at our house, they’re probably listening to me talk to you right now.”
Video has been taken of helicopters and cowboys removing the cattle, but true to their evil nature, the Feds are lying about it. What did you expect? They are claiming their security is in place because ‘they’ have been threatened. That’s rich and so typically Progressive. As of Monday, officials had seized 234 of Bundy’s 908 cattle. Impounding the cattle alone could cost the government as much as $3 million, but to the Bundys, it is priceless in its devastation.

Palestinian gunmen on Thursday fired mortars at IDF soldiers patrolling along the border with the Gaza Strip. The soldiers returned fire into Gaza.

According to the IDF, the incident, which took place along Gaza’s southern border, marks the latest in a series of cross-border altercations over the past week.

IAI and Defense Ministry launch satellite that can take photos of Earth targets irrespective of weather conditions.
The Defense Ministry and Israeli Aircraft Industries (IAI) launched a spy satellite from Palmahim airbase on Wednesday night.
The satellite, called Ofek 10, uses radar systems for observation. It was carried into space by a Shavit (comet) type launcher.
It entered orbit soon after launch, and is scheduled to undergo a series of checks to ensure that key functions are working correctly.
The SAR (Synthetic aperture radar) satellite has advanced day and night photography capabilities, and works in all weather conditions, the Defense Ministry said.
The launch was jointly carried out by IAI and the Defense Ministry’s Space Administration, which is a part of the Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure.
Israel maintains an extensive spy satellite program, which has seen the Defense Ministry invest hundreds of millions of shekels a year in space development and the satellite industry.
Defense officials said the program significantly upgrades Israel’s strategic capabilities, and strengthens the hi-tech sector. The first military satellite, Ofek 1, went into space in 1988.

 A long-suppressed report prepared by the Department of Homeland Security for the Defense Department concludes that North Korea could deliver on its threats to destroy the United States with a nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack.
The report remains blocked from release to the American public.
However, a copy obtained by Peter Vincent Pry from sources within DHS finds North Korea could use its Unha-3 space launch vehicle to deliver a nuclear warhead as a satellite over the South Pole to attack the U.S. from the south.
Pry, executive director of the congressional advisory Task Force on National and Homeland Security, pointed out that the U.S. “has no early warning radars or interceptors” to stop a missile from the south.
Pry also was the staff director to the congressionally mandated EMP commission, which concluded that the damage from either a natural or man-made EMP event on the nation’s unprotected electrical grid would have a cascading impact on life-sustaining critical infrastructures as well as electronic components and automated control systems.
Along with the electrical grid system, the critical infrastructures include telecommunications, banking, finance, petroleum and natural gas pipelines, transportation, food and water delivery, emergency services and space systems.
DHS conducted the study after the spring 2013 nuclear crisis with North Korea in which the communist government’s leadership threatened a “preemptive” nuclear strike on the U.S. and then released videos depicting a nuclear attack on Washington.

Pry said North Korea successfully practiced the EMP attack scenario three months before the crisis.
During the crisis, he said, North Korea issued a general mobilization order to its “nuclear forces” that included “space forces.”
“The North Koreans are seeing what they can get away with,” Pry said. “It shows that Pyongyang is planning something big against the U.S.”

In its December 2012 test, North Korea was able to launch a satellite, Cooper and Pry told WND, that could have been a nuclear weapon capable of orbiting the Earth and detonating on command over the United States or anywhere else.
In his interview with WND, Pry said Pyongyang in April 2013 had launched a satellite that was tracked orbiting over the U.S., first in the middle of country and then over the eastern most populated corridor between Boston and Washington.
Pry said that if the satellite were a nuclear weapon exploded above the middle of the U.S., the EMP effect on the vulnerable grid system would have been nationwide.
In its numerous underground nuclear tests, North Korea has been testing low-kiloton nuclear weapons that Pry said was a “super EMP” device designed to emit a large number of gamma rays, a form of electromagnetic energy.
