“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” – Matthew 7:20
“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” – Proverbs 6:16-19
The world seems to be falling into darkness. We are witnessing increasingly frequent riots, beheadings, wars, rumors of wars, division among the people, seeds of strife blossoming into chaos.
Who is to blame for the state of the world right now? We should certainly look in the mirror at ourselves first, but it seems that a force is at work actively pushing the globe into chaos and disorder. Is it historical cycles? Conspiracy? A spiritual battle taking place?
Historical cycles are certainly at work around the globe. Authors William Strauss and Neil Howe document these patterns in their 1997 book The Fourth Turning. History is made up of highs and lows. During a high, government and institutions are built up while values are established and commonly held. During our lifetime, we have witnessed a dramatic slide downward into a 4th turning cycle.
A Fourth Turning happens when issues that have been boiling without resolution for years explode. “Subliminal fears… become urgent” heading into the Fourth Turning. During what are called “4th turnings” groups entrench themselves in the power structure to support it, and others organize to resist it.
Because of globalization and world-wide communication, 4th turning cycles around the globe – including many different countries, cultures and governments – appear to be synchronized and are in fact leading to a dramatic global crescendo. As the world stands now, we are, according to very prominent individuals, at the cusp of World War 3.
Other forces at work
Globalist forces are also at work attempting to shape the globe to their liking. What is the nature of the fruit hanging on the trees of globalist construction?
We are told by Jesus Christ in the book of Matthew that we will know the true spirit of these individuals “…by their fruits…”
Billionare George Sorros recently warned that the world is heading towards WWIII. His warning should be taken seriously, but we should know that his actions are directly shaping the buildup to the war he is warning of.
Ukrainian rebels trained by U.S. Army, supported by Sorros foundation, hang pregnant women, push world toward WWIII
George Sorros’ influence over world affairs is made clear by his role in the recent Ukrainian conflict. Writing in the New American, William F. Jasper writes that Sorros has “a giant footprint in Ukraine”. Jasper notes that many of the protesters in Kiev were trained by Sorros funded NGO’s.
The end result of the overthrow of Kiev has been more chaos and disorder with a conflict that is threatening to draw Russia and the United States into open war. The “rebels” that the mainstream media in the United States paints a glowing picture of are responsible for heinous acts of violence.
In response to increasing tensions, a senior NATO official told former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler that “We’ll probably be at war this summer, if we’re lucky it won’t be nuclear“.
ISIS trained by pentagon, eat hearts, behead Christians
In March of 2013 – several months prior to the Syrian gas attacks that helped spark the current mid-east unrest – Intelligence Chief James Clapper testified to Congress that Al-Qaeda was no longer a major threat to the United States. Clapper told Congress that Al-Qaeda was unlikely to carry out “complex, large-scale attacks in the West” because the terrorist group was severely weakened.
Now, ISIS has emerged as the new threat. Stinger missiles and other military equipment provided by the west are fueling the terrorists’ conquest. While the United States government insists that these weapons were provided to “moderate” groups with no connections to Al-Qaeda, evidence abundantly indicates otherwise.
A newly declassified document reveals that ISIS has the support of the pentagon and NATO. Judicial Watch obtained the 2012 document from the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). The document states that the rise of a “Salafist Principality” like ISIS would receive the support of the “…west, Gulf countries, and Turkey.”
ISIS is now gaining territory across the middle east, leaving a path of death and destruction in its wake. Recently, ISIS forced civilians in Palmyra to watch the execution of 20 people in the city’s ancient amphitheater.
In Libya earlier this year, 30 Ethiopian Christians were beheaded by ISIS.
In 2013, a western backed Syrian rebel cut the heart out of a soldier and ate it.
The Christian Post reported earlier this month that “Assyrian Christians fleeing ISIS from Syria who’ve made it to Beirut, Lebanon, have said that their children were forced to watch beheadings…”
The “Ferguson Effect”; Black lives matter movement supported by Sorros; Baltimore descends into chaos; more division; provides pretext for more government power, federalization of local police
George Sorros is once more involved in shaping world affairs, this time inside the United States. Beginning in Ferguson Missouri, His backing of the Black Lives Matter movement has triggered nationwide protests, often leading to violence.
More racial division is spreading over the nation. The Wall Street Journal recently reported on the “Ferguson effect” triggering a new nation-wide crime wave.
CBS Baltimore reports that the month of May, 2015 is the deadliest month in 15 years for the city.
This violence is erupting at the same time that the Obama administration’s agenda for federalizing local police is rolling out. Under the guise of “social justice”, ridding departments of bias and racism, new training standards are being set at the federal level. The “Task Force on 21st Century Policing” outlines the plan. Speaking about the task force, Obama said that the media should aid in the push for the federal “solution”, saying that,
“Often we see an event that’s flashy; it makes the news; people are crying out for solutions. And by the time recommendations are put forward, our focus has moved on and we don’t actually see and pay attention to the concrete ways that we can improve the situation.”
Obama chose six cities to test the program. They include: Birmingham, Alabama; Fort Worth, Texas; Gary, Indiana; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Stockton, California.
As the world burns, each of us is responsible for how we conduct ourselves and how we respond to events. We should also be aware that there are other factors at work, both seen and unseen. We need to examine our own hearts and minds. In turn, we must discern who or what is working to impact our world. Are we moving individually and collectively toward righteousness, freedom, conscience and morality? What forces are at work attempting to undermine that progress? What fruit do we see on the tree of our nation? Our own personal lives?
