U.S. Air Force Admitted Before A Congressional Hearing The Purpose of HAARP Research Was To Control the Ionosphere (Weather).
Listen to the video at this link and hear for yourself Air Force personnel admit they used HAARP for weather control. The United States is not the only country using Scalar Magnetic Wave Technology (developed originally by Nikola Tesla, a brilliant Scientist [1856-1943] and more advanced that HAARP. Nikola Tesla tried to give his invention to the United States during WWII, but was rejected by our scientists who at time were pursuing development of the atomic bomb. However, the Russians and Israelis took great interest in Tesla's Scalar technology and by the mid 1990's the Russians had perfected and weaponized it not only to control and produce artificial weather patterns, but for militarized weapons.
During the Balkans Third War (1991-2001), Bill Clinton used NATO for the first time in an offensive bombing campaign over Bosnia in order to force the Serbs to the peace table. What was never reported by the U.S. media is that one of our high tech stealth bombers was shot down by a Russian anti-aircraft battery using Scalar technology. The Russian commander in charge of the Serbian anti-aircraft defense said they were tracking the stealth fighter as it approached for its bombing run. They set up a scalar cone in the path of the stealth bomber and when it entered the cone it was vaporized. The United States kept a tight lid on this event for obvious reason for at the time our stealth fighters and bombers were considered invincible. Russia proved otherwise.
It is true that the HAARP fixed facility in Alaska was closed by the Air Force in May 2013 dismantling their large antennas. However, that does not mean research is not continuing on atmospheric weather Control. In fact, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has moved on to study how to control lightning (Project NIMBUS).
The U.S. Government has been conducting experiments on weather modification for many years unknown to American citizens. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson in 2005 introduced Senate bill (S517) to establish the Weather Modification Operations and Research Board. However due to the work of Michael Coffman (Ph.D Forest Science, University of Idaho), an environmental consultant with Environmental Perspectives and author of Saviors of the Earth, the bill never got out of committee and died there. It is alleged the Bush administration (43) directed the Senate to kill the bill. Whatever reason, the weather modification board Senator Hutchinson tried to establish never got off the ground. That said, Chemtrail and HAARP activity in the skies over America were the heaviest during the period 2003-2006. We were living in Plano, Texas at the time and almost every day there were massive Chemtrails with the "X-Patterns" and picket fence wave footprints in our skies. I took many pictures of them as well as the high-flying unmarked jets criss-crossing the skies day and night.
Here is a link that is very long and detailed, but gives credible information about Chemtrail spraying and HAARP activity. The Chinese have also experimented with weather modification and according to an article by the Canadian Free Press, they lead the world in weather modification. The question is; is weather modification a good thing or a bad thing and is it interfering with God's natural creation? In the beginning of the human race when God created Adam and Eve, He told them to replenish the earth and subdue it (Genesis 1:28). I suppose if weather modification was used to relieve drought-stricken areas that would be a good thing, but if used to create floods, droughts, earthquakes, tornado's, etc. that would be man playing God. If a nation could alter the weather over another nation that could be considered a weapon of war. See this link also.
In fact, the government of Australia was highly suspicious that all the Chemtrail and Scalar activity over their nation was causing the severe drought they experienced from 2003-2012. Was it a coincidence the same period saw massive Chemtrail activity in the United States. In 2006, my wife and I took a week's vacation to Tennessee and Georgia. On one particular day in Nashville, the high-flying unmarked jets created so many Chemtrails in the skies that it literally turned a beautiful sun-filled day into a gray hazy gloomy overcast day.
There is a meteorologist in Chicago that is not afraid to tell his audience when Chemtrail activity is creating artificial clouds. I watched his weather forecast one day and he pointed out on the radar screen the difference between natural clouds and the artificial ones caused by Chemtrails. This was several months ago and I do not recall his name. There is another meteorologist in Salt Lake City, Utah, Scott Stevens who has reported on Chemtrails for many years. He is the person who showed me how to spot HAARP activity in conjunction with Chemtrails. A local meteorologist in Dallas, Texas, Steve McCauley, formerly with the ABC affiliate, WFAA, admitted in emails we shared that Chemtrails were our affecting the weather. He first denied it, but after sharing much evidence with him of my research as well as a plethora of credible sources, he admitted both Chemtrails and HAARP were involved with our weather.
When I was doing my personal research, I noticed a pattern that was always the same. Two or three days before a weather event was forecast to bring thunderstorms and rain, the high-flying unmarked jets appeared in the skies over that 2 or three day period plastering the skies with Chemtrails and X-Patterns usually followed by HAARP activity. In many situations the rains never occurred. Why? Because HAARP activity had heated up the ionosphere causing it to be devoid of moisture needed for a rain event. Other times when Chemtrails were prevalent without HAARP activity we got good rains. Was this weather modification? I believe it was.
One thing I do know and that is I don't trust our government to tell us the truth of what they are doing behind the scenes or for that matter what we see visibly in our skies that is not normal phenomenon.
Last, we know from the Scriptures that God is going to use weather as an end-time weapon to defeat the enemies of Israel:
Ezekiel 38:18-23 KJV
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. 21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.
Also during the 7th Bowl of Wrath:
Revelation 16:21 KJV
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent:and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (note; a talent is about 100 pounds).
Is there evidence the United States and other nations such as Russia and China are using weather modification potentially as a weapon of war and not for environmental benefits? Yes, I think there is.
76 Out of 77 Scientists Say Nothing To Chemtrails
"Conspiracy theories can be stubborn, particularly in the echo chamber of the internet".
"One persistent belief in some quarters is that the government — or business, perhaps — is deploying a fleet of jet aircraft to spray chemicals into the sky to control the population, food supply or other things."
"As evidence, they point to what they call “chemtrails,” which are more commonly known as contrails, or condensation trails, produced at high altitudes as water vapor in jet engine exhaust condenses and freezes"
When I read this article a week or so ago, I was almost at the point of hysterical laughing because is so ludicrous and dishonest! I really do not care if these so-called brilliant scientists don't know the forest from the trees and also you have to keep in mind the article is from the liberal New York Times, but their article is a bunch of hogwash!
Sometime around 2003-2004 I began to notice a phenomenon taking place in the skies over us - Chemtrails and HAARP bombardment of our atmosphere. Now you would have to be very keen to know and understand what HAARP activity is and how to spot it. A meteorologist from Utah helped me know how to spot HAARP activity in conjunction with Chemtrails.
I was so intrigued by this phenomenon, that I started my own research by taking pictures with my telescopic camera and binoculars of the high-flying jets spraying Chemtrails in conjunction with HAARP electromagnetic waves.
The internet is full of credible websites of highly skilled scientists and atmospheric experts that have documented evidence of unmarked jets spraying our skies with unknown chemicals. Then the mobile HAARP vans that are setup all across our nation emitting their EMP waves into the ionosphere.
I watched and recorded massive Chemtrails in the summer of 2006 over the skies of North Texas. I even observed HAARP activity move a thunderstorm to the East of Dallas Texas. These high flying unmarked jets (White upper fuselage and a dark or black under-body) would often fly from opposite altitudes toward each other laying down an X-Pattern in the skies and I guarantee you they were not commercial jets? Furthermore, these are not contrails! Contrails dissipate within a few minutes, but Chemtrails linger for several hours in our skies.
I once watched an interview Fox News had with a high ranking Air Force officer who admitted the Air Force was conducting experiments with Chemtrails and he said and I quote him, "Chemtrail activity is best done at night when there is less public scrutiny."
More importantly, I was attached to Marine Corps Intelligence out of Da Nang, South Vietnam in 1968 and knew our military was using Chemtrails to lengthen the Monsoon season in Northern South Vietnam to extend the rainy season in hopes of slowing down the transfer of supplies from North Vietnam to South Vietnam via the Ho Chi Minh Trail. It was successful. I was in Northern I Corps a the time and realized the monsoon was longer than anticipated. We stayed wet for more than 3 months.
What's more, commercial airline pilots have photographed these high flying unmarked jets with nozzles coming out of the wings and spraying Chemtrails in our skies.
The truth is the USAF has been spraying Chemtrails over every continent around our planet and has bragged they will control the weather by 2025.
Chemtrails over North Texas have lightened up somewhat over the past several months, but today they are back in massive productions.
These dubious dishonest scientists are part of the on-going cover-up the Shadow Government is doing to dumb-down the sheeple. DON'T BELIEVE THEM!
Blood Red Moon Over New York City
Is this the blood red moon prophecy buffs say predicts a judgment of God? On the posttrib day of the Lord the moon will turn blood red and the sun will be darkened and the stars will not shine.
The fact that it occurred in the Hebrew month of Elul (our August-September) and the month I believe the tribulation will begin may be a divine warning from God that something major is about to take place.
Donald Trump Says English Is The Language Of the U.S. Not Spanish
No other politician would have the guts to say what Trump said today in regard to the official language of the United States that being English.
Hats off to Trump for not being intimidated by the PC police!
Whatever you think of him, he is not afraid to say what he believes and when you critique his comments he is with mainstream America not the statists and establishment. His policies if he sticks with them will turn America around economically and financially. The thing that is lacking in his platform is a return back to God and it is more important than anything else.
I have to wonder about these so-called evangelical Christian pastors including our own pastor, Dr. Robert Jeffress, who are supposedly consulting with Trump, what they are telling him about our need to turn back to the Lord God for his campaign is void of this issue.
Saying that he is going to protect Christians while ignoring the more important issue of repenting as a nation and turning back to God is suspect of Trump's Christianity.
The first 3 1/2 years of the Antichrist rise to power as the White Horse of Revelation 6 will be deceptive toward Christians and Jews - he will pretend to be their friend.
Is Trump a true friend of Christians?
Obama Administration Thrusts Lesbians Into Farming, But Why?
"PALM BEACH, Florida – A new federal plan encouraging lesbians to become farmers has a hidden, strategic purpose, according to radio host Rush Limbaugh, who is blasting it as “the latest Democrat scam.”
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is holding a series of summits to push the role of lesbian farmers as a part of its “Rural Pride” campaign, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
“I guarantee you that most people reading the news would come across a story with the Washington Free Beacon headline ‘Feds Holding Summits for Lesbian Farmers,’ and they would probably ignore it or laugh at it but ultimately cast it aside,” Limbaugh said Wednesday. “But I, El Rushbo, am able to read the stitches on the fastball and clearly see what this is about.”
“It has a specific political objective,” he continued, “and the quick explanation is this is the left expanding their sphere of dominant influence.”
Although this has been on the internet for several days, I had to post it because it is the stupidest thing I think I have ever heard of - LESBIAN FARMERS.
Rush is right, the left will stop at nothing to advance their perverted agenda, even trying to change the rural demographics in America with sick women. Do we really think lesbians want to be farmers? Farming is grueling hard work and long hours. From what I read about Lesbians they prefer a more comfortable lifestyle.
This is another example of how mentally sick the Obama administration is.
I can almost smell the fire and brimstone of four cities God destroyed because of their homosexuality.
America is a modern Sodom and Gomorrah and ripe for judgment!
Andrea Tantaros Files $50 Million Lawsuit Against Fox Network.
Wow! Andrea Tantaros, former beautiful brunette at Fox News has not only filed a lawsuit against ousted CEO, Roger Ailes, but also other top executives at Fox including Bill O'Reilly. When the sex scandal was exposed by Gretchen Carlson, O'Reilly supported Ailes, wonder why? O'Reilly has been at Fox News since 1996 and has enjoyed top ratings at the network. He and Megan Kelly beat all the competition every night during prime time audiences.
I have traded emails with O'Reilly on theological issues which he often gets wrong. However, for the most part I have found him to be truthful and accurate in his reporting. I have also read all his "killing" books and have learned from them. His TV series, Legends and Lies, I find fascinating and informative.
While at Fox, "O'Reilly went through a divorce and remarriage so maybe during that period he may have hit on the attractive Tantaros. I am not saying he did, but why would she implicate him in her lawsuit knowing that he is a tough no nonsense guy? If she is lying, O'Reilly will hit her with a big-time libel suit.
Anyway, things are not looking good for the so-called "Fair and Balanced" news network.
Our nation is reeling. I turn on the news and see Bruce Jenner being celebrated for wearing a dress. Women on Instagram exploiting their bodies for fame. The music industry is selling sex, drug use and explicit language to our children. I see riots in our streets, as men throw rocks at police and vandalize public property. Protesters stomping on and burning Old Glory. I see "race" issues getting worse instead of better. Our kids on college campuses being brainwashed by liberal ideology and thinking socialism would make America better. We have watched millions of babies get aborted each year, gay marriage legalized across this nation, and now bathrooms are no longer separated by sex? Where does it end?
Maybe you feel like it's hopeless to save our nation. In 70 AD, Rome came and sacked Jerusalem. They burned everything to the ground, just as it was foretold by the prophets. But yet a remnant remained.
Today in America, there are still millions and millions of Bible-believing Christians throughout our nation. The homosexual population? Less than 3%. Transgenders? Less than .3%!
Why are we scared? We are the MANY, they are the FEW. We need to take back our streets, take back our cities and take back our nation for the Glory of God!
Men and women, I call on you to get on your knees before a Holy and Just God to cry out for your country. God has given us the King that we begged for. We have reaped what we have sowed.
But it's not too late. It may feel like it is, but I assure you, Christian citizen, it is NOT!
We need to visibly show the nation that we are here and we are not going away quietly.
You have seen the Jesus fish on cars for many years now. But we are more than Christians. We are Christian Patriots!
That's why we need your help. We want to see 1 MILLION cars on our streets and highways with this emblem. We are not hiding. We are right in front of you and we will not lay down and allow any more of this foolishness to destroy our country that our fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers fought and died for.
I want every Christian Patriot in America to get the Star-Spangled Fish Emblem for their vehicle. Can you imagine driving through town and seeing 5 out of every 10 cars with the emblem on it?
I assure you, they will take notice! Just like in any game, when the defense makes a big play, it strikes fear in the heart of their opponent. We have been on defense for far too long. It's time to go big and strike down this progressive movement in America. We will infiltrate every area of culture and politics. This will be our calling card.
Change starts small, but like a snowball rolling down hill, we will become a force that cannot be stopped.
Join me, my brothers and sisters! If we do not take action today, there may not be another chance for us".
Jared Vallorani CEO Liberty Alliance
I seldom put any kind of bumper sticker on my cars. However, I plan to get two - one for my car and one for my wife's car. Let me share how a sticker once introduced us to a Christian couple from Texas and in a most unlikely place.
My wife and I had taken a vacation to New Jersey in 1976 and on our way back home we were driving through Pennsylvania when a car drove up beside us and honked their horn. We understood they wanted us to pull over so we did (that was then, today I probably would not do that, but we noticed they had Texas license plates). It turned out they were Christians and noticed our "One Way" sticker on the back windshield (In 1976, the One Way stickers with the finger pointing upward meant Jesus is the only way to salvation; there were many of those on cars). We had a great conversation with this young Christian couple from Texas on a highway in Pennsylvania. We never saw them again.
Ironically I have never forgotten them and can still see the face of the young husband - black hair and a black mustache. I guess because I spoke primarily to him while my wife was with the young man's wife.
So sometimes, stickers have a way of communication not expected.
Hillary's State Department Sponsored Graft Racket Exposed
"WASHNGTON – Under Hillary Clinton’s leadership, the State Department was run like a mob-run shakedown operation, with more than half the visitors she met with from outside government paying money to the Clinton Family Foundation for the privilege, according to an Associated Press investigation of her calendars.
“It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president,” reported the largest news-gathering organization in the world.
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, the news agency reported Tuesday.
Combined the 85 “donors” contributed as much as $156 million – with 40 donating more than $100,000 and 20 giving more than $1 million, according to the stunning report.
AP reports donors who were granted time with Clinton included":
Hillary Rotham Clinton is awash in crooked deals and scandals involving her emails via her private at-home server and the Clinton Foundation yet she goes on late night TV shows and acts as though she is lilly-livered clean of any wrong doing. There is not an ounce of guilt or remorse in her fat-bottom pant suits.
This woman is the less qualified of any U.S. president, but the liberal media love her and cover for her. There is something wrong with that! The problem is that left-leaning democrats do not care one iota if Hillary is a crooked wicked politician. All they care about is beating Donald Trump in the up-coming election. Richard Nixon's crime in the Watergate scandal is mild compared to Hillary's life-time of hiding her criminal activities and the democrats crucified him with help from the Republicans who at the time were concerned about truth and honesty.
The Lord God speaking through the prophet Isaiah condemned Judah for not standing with the truth:
Isaiah 59:12-15 NASB
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before You, And our sins testify against us; For our transgressions are with us, And we know our iniquities: 13 Transgressing and denying the Lord, And turning away from our God, Speaking oppression and revolt, Conceiving in and uttering from the heart lying words. 14 Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands far away; For truth has stumbled in the street, And uprightness cannot enter. 15 Yes, truth is lacking; And he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey. Now the Lord saw,...
Read this passage carefully and see if it reminds you of anything. It should for it describes the United States to a "T"
How can America's judgment not be imminent?
Federal Judge In Texas Blocks Obama's Transgender Bathroom Order
"In a major blow to the Obama administration’s alternative-sexual-behaviors agenda, a federal judge in Texas late Sunday night blocked the president’s order to open public school restrooms and shower rooms according to “gender identity” and allow boys who believe they are girls to use girls’ facilities".
"U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of Fort Worth found that the Obama administration did not follow proper procedures in creating the directives. Further, he said the guidelines contradicted existing statutes and regulatory texts, the Dallas Morning News reported".
"The ruling follows the Obama administration’s order to allow transgendered persons to serve in the military".
"In defense of its order, the government has cited Title IX regulations, arguing “sex” is a protected class. The lawsuit counters that the government is presuming that when Congress adopted the law in 1972, it had open restrooms and shower rooms in view".
Reacting to the ruling, Matt Sharp of Alliance Defending Freedom said the Obama administration “cannot unilaterally disregard and redefine federal law to accomplish its political agenda of forcing girls to share locker rooms and showers with boys.”
“The court in this case made clear that the administration ignored the federally required public notice and comment process as well as the crystal clear meaning of Title IX in its attempt to force its will on the American people,” he said".
The majority of the American people, particularly parents, find Obama's transgender bathroom ruling appalling, but he is an immoral soul with no conscious for he is on record of not caring if babies that survive abortion are murdered by wicked abortion doctors.
When Obama was in the Illinois state Senate, he voted to deny basic constitutional protections for babies born alive from an abortion — not once, but four times.
When Obama said he was going to fundamentally change America little did we know what he meant - that he was going to push the homosexual agenda to include transgenders invading our children's right of privacy in bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.
Indecency is not a virtue, it is a vice!
And he did something else few believed was possible - changed a 6000 year-old God ordained institution - "marriage" recognized the world-over as between a man and a woman. While Obama is not the Antichrist or is he, he certainly has Antichrist characteristics.
Daniel 7:25 KJV
25 And he [the Antichrist] shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Hillary has several things in common with Obama two of which are prominent - they are both pathological liars and corrupt to the bone. However, she cannot be the Antichrist for that is reserved for a man.
We learned yesterday the FBI discovered 15,000 emails Hillary did not disclose to the State Department - an oversight or intentional? Doesn't matter the Injustice Department is not going to ever prosecute Hillary. Trump is right, there needs to be a special prosecutor to look into the Hillary's email situation and especially the Clinton Foundation. She and old sex maniac Bill have said if she is elected president they will stop receiving foreign donations - yeah sure! Why not give back the money the special interest and the Crown Princes gave them? The Clinton's love money and power and they are not going to give-up their quest for both - not until they are put in prison and I doubt that ever happening.
Glenn Beck Predicts A Dictatorship If Trump Wins The Presidency!
"Talk show host Glenn Beck continued his attack on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Thursday by predicting a “South American dictatorship” if Trump should win and the creation of a media empire that will exacerbate divisions if Trump should lose."
"Beck, who supported Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and virulently opposed Trump during the Republican presidential primaries, told Don Lemon of CNN that he believes Trump will be defeated in November and at one point said Trump “wants to” lose".
"Beck believes Trump’s ultimate motivation is quite simple — fame and money".
Readers, please understand Glenn Beck is a Mormon posing as a Christian and his ideology is suspect. Why he opposes Donald Trump in light of his excellent research into George Soros is a mystery. This is the principal reason Fox News fired him - he was getting too close to Jewish billionaire, George Soros' empire.
What I am saying is not to be deceived by Beck's biased criticism of Donald Trump.
From everything I read and research about Donald Trump I have yet to find one incident of where he is dishonest or corrupt.
We will more than likely get a dictatorship with Hillary as we have one now with Obama!
How Not To Betray Your Country This November
"It’s one of the great mysteries of the current election season.
"On one hand we have Donald Trump, who last week delivered substantive, well-received policy speeches on defeating radical Islam, rescuing America’s disintegrating economy and quelling the growing epidemic of urban racial violence by finally addressing core issues. He even publicly expressed regret over ill-considered comments he has made during the campaign that have “caused personal pain.”
"On the other hand we have Hillary Clinton, who, despite being protected at every turn by an outrageously biased news media, is the focus of ever-cascading scandals and is now seen by more people than ever as a lying criminal. If elected president, she says she would continue and enlarge Obama’s policies – the same disastrous policies that have destroyed America’s economy, increased terrorism in the homeland, popularized outright socialism, divided the nation into angry warring factions, and maintained a constant flood into the American homeland of un-assimilable Muslim immigrants from the most radical places on earth".
David Kupelian is an excellent author and is the managing editor of Whistleblower Magazine published by World Net Daily which I have subscribed to for several years. This article addresses the root problem in this coming election and why Christians need to vote and not stay home. There is no excuse for not voting because it is your biblical mandate to do so. If Hillary wins the presidency and you do not vote - guess what, you helped put her in office and you will have to live with her disastrous policies for the next four years.
Please read David's thought provoking article and I hope after doing so you will understand why you must vote in this election for Donald Trump, that is, if you are a Christian. Hillary Clinton is a corrupt criminal that is being protected by the global elitists. Why would anyone in their right mind want to vote for lying Hillary Clinton? The answer is NO ONE, but unfortunately the dumbo-crats have a mental problem and cannot see the forest for the trees.
This election is the crisis point for America, either we go forward as a moral righteous nation or spiritually bankrupt with serious consequences.
Daniel's 70 Weeks: Gap Or No; Jews Only - Part 2
Daniel 9:24-27 NASB
24 “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and ]prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.25 So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will beseven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.26 Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.27 And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominationswill come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”
In Part I of this series on Daniel's 70 Weeks, we saw the prophecy is for the Jewish people and/or the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem (See Verse 24 above). However, the prophecy finds its ultimate fulfillment in the life and ministry of Yeshua - Jesus.
We also proved from the Scriptures a week in the Hebrew language related to this text is not seven days, but a period of seven years. I recommend if you have not read Part I to read it before trying to understand Part 2 (See the Prophecy Section right side bar). Breaking the text down into its key points helps to remove some of the complexities of the prophecy. The key points are:
1. A Period of 70 Weeks (actually 490 years - 70 x 7) have been determined to accomplish the following to the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem: - finish the transgression - put an end to sin - atone for iniquity - bring in everlasting righteousness - seal up vision and prophet (Hebrew gives prophet not prophecy) - anoint the most holy (Note: the word place was added to the original text - the Textus Receptus or the Received Text [KJV,] so the it begs the question who or what is anointed). 2. A decree is issued to restore and rebuild THE CITY OF JERUSALEM as it had been destroyed by Babylon beginning in 606 B.C. The dilemma is what decree and to whom issued. 3. A period of seven weeks (49 years) and sixty-two weeks (434 years) for a total of sixty-nine weeks or 483 years are involved with the coming of Messiah the Prince (Yeshua - Jesus) in His first advent). 4. AFTER the 62 weeks (434 years) Messiah the Prince shall be cut off and have nothing (KJV says not for Himself). 5. The people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary (temple). 6. Its end (Jerusalem) will come with a flood (a flood here means an outrageous overflowing); to the very end Jerusalem will experience much war, which will cause desolation's (means to stun, numb, to be amazed or astonished). 7. He (who is this) will make a firm or strong covenant with [the] many (who are they) for one week (7 years). 8. In the middle of the week, he (who is this) will break the covenant and put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering (all are related to temple worship and rituals). 9. On a wing of abominations a desolator will come, but it has been decreed that he will be completely destroyed, that is by God. (Note: the Greek meaning of the word wing, is the farthest extremity of something; in the context is means the worst imaginable abomination with nothing to compare it too.
These key points will help you to understand the meaning of this important prophecy and as the series advances. I recommend you read them several times with the text before you until the truth gets into your spirit.
I previously mentioned in my study and research of Daniel's 70 Weeks, that I discovered a couple of commentators (not well known) that I believe address this prophecy better than any that I had read and that is countless books and articles over a 45 year period. Before I introduce the commentators, I need to mention what has been accepted as the majority position on Daniel 9:24-27, namely, traditional dispensational pretribulationism as promoted by the futurist's doctors of theology:
Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost, one of the premier fathers of modern day futurism, says in his book, Things To Come (the manual for dispensationalists) the entire seven-year tribulation is the Day of the Lord, which I debunk in great detail in my book, The Day of the Lord, The Key To Understanding End-Time Prophecy, as well he takes the position there is a gap between the sixty-two weeks and the final week, which is the Church Age, but not between the first seven weeks and the sixty two weeks.
The one gap between the sixty-two weeks and the final one week is of utmost importance to pretribulationists in promoting the pretribulation rapture (living believers are taken from the world just prior to the tribulation and the appearing of the Antichrist to join the dead resurrected saints in the air and then taken to heavenly mansions during the entire seven-year tribulation). The gap, if there is one, between the sixty-two weeks and the final week is not proof of itself of a pretribulation rapture since the 70 weeks consummate with the ending of the Tribulation Period and the rapture occurs at the beginning of the posttrib Day of the Lord. It is not even necessary to attempt to prove the Church must be removed before God can resume his program with Israel. God is saving both Jews and Gentiles today and bringing them into His Church - the One New Man. The only reason to promote a separate program for Israel and the Church is to protect the pretribulation rapture. Failure to understand the Israel of God's relationship to the Church and the purpose of the Day of the Lord has led to this error. The Lord asks Israel why they look forward to the Day of the Lord for they do not understand it and neither do most theologians today:
Amos 5:18 NASB
18 Alas, you who are longing for the day of the Lord, For what purpose will the day of the Lord be to you? It will be darkness and not light;
My point is the futurists promote the gap theory primarily to prove the rapture occurs before the tribulation period not so much as to advance the continuity of the 70 Weeks as having to do with the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. If the rapture occurs after the tribulation has ended, which is does, then it has nothing to do with the 70 Weeks. Now I know what some may be thinking, which is, if the Church remains on earth during the final one week (70th Week) then is it not also part of the 70th Week making the fulfillment not solely Jewish? Think of it this way. In all of Israel's periods of judgments (two temples destroyed and the city of Jerusalem ransacked numerous times and even today is a divided city, the Gentiles and the Church have shared in the history of Israel and Judah for several millennia. The Church has co-existed with Israel and the Jewish people for almost two thousand years, which involved the last destruction of the temple and the city of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D. All of the years when the 490 years of Daniel's prophecy were/are being completed to the Jews, the Gentile nations and the Church were/are part of that fulfillment even though the purpose of the 70 Weeks is for Daniel's people, the Jews and the city of Jerusalem.
Now let's move on to the the first commentator, Dr. Fred G. Zaspel, and his article, Daniel's "Seventy Weeks", An Historical and Exegetical Analysis. (He has a PhD from the Free University of Amsterdam and serves as the pastor at Reformed Baptist Church in Franconia, Pennsylvania, an adjunct professor of systematic theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the executive director of Books At a Glance. He is the co-author of New Covenant Theology and has published numerous booklets, articles, and book reviews).
The following is my review of his exceptional exegesis of Daniel's 70 Weeks:
He begins his analysis of the 70 Weeks with an important statement - Final decision regarding the interpretation of any Old Testament prophecy can be made of course, only after the New Testament citations/allusions to that prophecy are taken into account. Daniel 9:24-27 is treated by the New Testament authors at least three times: In Matthew 24:15, Jesus' makes reference to the abomination of desolation. However, Dr. Zaspel makes a distinction to the point of reference Jesus referred to (very few do that) in that the desolating abominable idol is mentioned in both Daniel 11:31 and 12:11. I agree with him that most prophecy experts acknowledge Daniel 11:31 refers to Antiochus Epiphanes (the Syrian) placing an idol of Zeus in the Holy of Holies of the temple in Jerusalem (168 B.C.). Since Jesus' prophecy was some 200 years after that incident as well as a future fulfillment from 30 A.D. (Christ gave His Olivet Discourse as recorded in Matthew 24 a few days before his crucifixion and resurrection), then His reference must be to Daniel 12:11 and the same as Daniel 9:27. Dr. Zaspel says, in both cases the thought connects the ending of sacrifices with the abomination of desolation and it would be difficult to demonstrate any reference to Daniel 12:11 as over against Daniel 9:27 as the two speak of the same. In His Olivet Discourse then, Jesus makes specific reference to Daniel's prophecy of the seventy weeks:
Matthew 24:15 NASB
15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
Daniel 11:31 NASB 31 Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation.
Daniel 12:11 NASB
11 From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.
Notice Daniel 11:31 does not mention a specific period as does Daniel 12:11 which is 30 days longer than Revelation 12:7 (no one can deny this verse, which mentions the 1260 days is understood to have a future fulfillment even from our time. Therefore, it should be clear Jesus' reference in Matthew 24:15 ties to Daniel 9:27, 12:11 and Revelation 12:7 since Christ is the author of the Book of Revelation (John was simply Jesus' scribe).
(2) A comparison of Daniel's 70th Week with 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13 demonstrates further the New Testament dependence upon this passage. They have in common among other things - the idol, the blasphemy in the temple and a three and one half year reign. Dr. Zaspel has a table showing the characteristics of the coming prince as outlined in Daniel 9, 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13 (Instead of inserting the table, I will list the Scripture passages):
Daniel 9:27 NASB
27 And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of [a]abominations will come one who [b]makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who [c]makes desolate.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 NASB
3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come (The Day of the Lord- emphasis mine) unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God
Revelation 13 NASB
And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; 4 they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” 5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.
Notice the similarities: In Daniel 9:27, [he] makes a firm covenant with many for one seven or one week (7 years) then after 3 1/2 years he breaks the covenant by stopping temple worship and causes the abomination of desolation (Look back up at the 9 key points I gave for Daniel 9). 2 Thessalonians 2 says the posttrib Day of the Lord will not come until two events happen first, namely the great end-time apostasy, which we are in now and the man of sin or lawlessness is revealed who exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship and takes his seat (position of authority) in the temple of God claiming to be God (not just any god, but the sovereign Lord of the Universe - the Father God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit). This is the height of blasphemy. Then in Revelation 13, this arrogant beast who derives his power from Satan is given 42 months to reign. He blasphemes God, His name (that is a reference to Yeshua - Jesus) and His tabernacle (the one in heaven) and those who dwell in Heaven (the holy angels and the departed saints - see the 5th seal in Revelation 6).
Dr. Zaspel says this link to Daniel's prophecy to the Lord's Olivet Discourse and other New Testament eschatological passages make Daniel's prophecy pivotal. It provides the key and establishes the framework of further prophetic discussion. Understanding it properly is critical then to the proper understanding of prophecy as a whole.
This is all I have time for tonight, but in Part 3 we shall look at Dr. Zaspel's handling of the Significance of the Term, "Seventy Seven", and the Historical Data.
You may want to go ahead and read his article as I will be writing my review based on the entire article. It is an outstanding article that is accurate to the original Hebrew with fresh insights into the interpretive meaning.
Is The U.S. Government Hiding a Biblical Nephilim Called The Giant of Kandahar, Afghanistan?
"It’s one of the most bizarre stories to come out of America’s longest war – an allegation United States Special Forces engaged and killed a “giant” in Afghanistan". "But it’s being reported by multiple sources. Several eyewitnesses claim the battle not only took the life of an American soldier, but that the government flew the huge corpse of the attacker back to the United States".
"Reporter and researcher L.A. Marzulli explores the spectacular charge in the newest installment of “The Watchers,” the blockbuster series investigating the real evidence behind the Nephilim. These creatures were the offspring of the “sons of God,” the angels, and the “daughters of men.” In Genesis 6:4 and Numbers 13:33, the Bible speaks of “giants” populating the Earth. When ordinary people saw them, they said “we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
As the article states, the Bible speaks of giants in the days before the world-wide Flood (days of Noah) and when the 10 spies of Israel went to spy out the land of Canaan they observed very large human beings - the Nephilim (Hebrew - nephil). Vacation Bible schoolers usually learn the story of Goliath the Philistine giant whom David as a young boy killed with a slingshot and a stone (one), then cut off Goliath's head with his huge sword. It is not unreasonable to assume there are Nephilim today living in areas like Afghanistan. According to the article, it took several rounds in the head to kill the Giant of Kandahar. Why would the U.S. government hide this from the American people? If we actually knew all the government was hiding from us we would probably be amazed, frightened and even angry. One reason is it proves the Bible is accurate and truthful.
What is important from a biblical prophecy perspective is Jesus said His return would be linked to a time like it was in Noah's day - giants in the earth. No doubt the government has thoroughly examined the Giant of Kandahar's body and know a lot about his DNA. Where did he come from and are there more like him? The article said the C-130 pilot who flew the giant's body to the U.S. commented that he was 12 feet tall and weighed 1100 pounds. Goliath, by comparison was over 9 feet tall, so the Giant of Kandahar was even larger. I can imagine the troops that encountered and killed him probably were taken aback by the sheer size of such a creature.
Jesus also said in the last days there would be signs in the heavens and upon the earth, great distress of nations with perplexity...causing men's hearts to fail from fear of what things they expected to happen on the earth:
Luke 21:25-27 NKJV
25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
The Greek word used for men's heart failing them from fear does not meant they have a heart attack and die rather the word implies weakness such as fainting or passing out. Now that is certainly great fear meaning things will be very bad. And notice something else, it says this fear will be two-fold: (1) from perplexing distress of nations and (2) from the things THEY WERE EXPECTING TO TAKE PLACE BECAUSE THE POWERS OF THE HEAVENS WOULD BE SHAKEN.
The Greek word for shaken implies agitation; to rock back and forth; to topple and to destroy. Apparently the atmosphere above the earth will experience some type of cataclysmic phenomenon that will greatly affect not only the atmosphere, but also the terra firma.
Isaiah 24 is about Judgment Day for planet earth on the the Day of the Lord, which I address in my book, The Day of the Lord, The Key To Understanding End-Time Prophecy.
The following passage resembles what Jesus said in Luke 21:
17 Fear and the pit and the snare Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall be That he who flees from the noise of the fear Shall fall into the pit, And he who comes up from the midst of the pit Shall be caught in the snare; For the windows from on high are open, And the foundations of the earth are shaken.
19 The earth is violently broken, The earth is split open, The earth is shaken exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.
None of this takes place during the Tribulation Period, which is why we know the Day of the Lord is not the same as the Tribulation, but is posttrib (occurring after the Tribulation has ended).
Jesus said the Great Tribulation would be so bad there would not be another time like it not in the past or in the future, but most who read this text teach that is only the time of the last 3 1/2 years of the GT not realizing it spills over into the posttrib Day of the Lord. Have you ever read Revelation 11:7-10 about the two witnesses and wondered what it means that the people rejoice and send gifts to one another?
7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
They think when the two witnesses are killed, the Great Tribulation is over not realizing the Day of the Lord is the very next great event on God's prophetic timetable. There is a lot of teaching today in the area of eschatology (doctrine of last things) that is entirely bogus, but is accepted as truth because Christians do not know their Bible.
For example, I read today an article by WND how excited Christians are (including well-known pastors) over the teaching of two lost Jewish Torah scholars concerning the nearness of Messiah's coming (first coming for they reject the New Testament teaching the Messiah has already come in Yeshua - Jesus). They talk about how the Messianic era will be time when Jewish Israel will be teaching the Torah to Christians and Gentiles, when only the Hebrew language will be spoken, when the feasts of Israel will be observed by all people (the 7-Feasts given in the Torah are not the Feast's of Israel, but the Lord's Feast's) and that Christians will learn the customs of Judaism. In other words, learning the Torah will be the central focus of the millennial kingdom.
What amazes me is that Christians particularly pastors believe this stuff. It Christians are going to have to become Jews during the millennial kingdom then the Books of Hebrews and Galatians are nothing but a pack of lies and should not even be in the New Covenant. I personally know Christians who have left the Churches to join Messianic Torah congregations thinking they are missing something by being a Gentile Christian that focuses on the Lord Jesus Christ and spreading His gospel to the world to both Jews and Gentiles. These misguided Christian pastors imply because the first converts to Christianity were Jews, the Church continued to worship as Judaizing Christians. That is simply not true from the Book of Acts or history. If the Apostle Paul had continued to worship as a Judaizer, then why did the Jews try to kill him everywhere he went (they finally had Rome kill him).
What did the Jerusalem Council tell Paul and Barnabas:
18 “Known to God from eternity are all His works. 19 Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath.”
Apparently James was the leading elder of the Jerusalem Council and it is probably him that gave the verdict of the council. Does this verdict sound like Gentile Christians need to become Torah believers and join Jewish Messianic congregations to learn the Torah and how to worship the Lord like a Jew? All the Council said to Paul and Barnabas, representatives of the Christian Churches in the first century A.D., was a warning about Idolatry to include food polluted by idols (today that would be eating meat that has been sanctified by Sharia law) and sexual immorality.
Unfortunately the modern Church is guilty of both warnings as it has allowed both idols and sexual immorality inside its worship houses.
