Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

Socialism is not the Answer

Judicial Watch

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone…

Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 – Part II


When Could It Happen?

Before the 70th Week???

Ezekiel 39:8-10
Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

In reality, I don’t believe there is any further defining of when Gog/Magog specifically happens, but once it does we will know. The views that are left are that Gog/Magog happens either before the 70th week or before the abomination of desolation. This passage is used by some to imply that Gog/Magog happens before the 70th week since they burn the weapons for 7 years. I personally think that’s a big assumption that can’t really be supported. There’s nothing in the above scripture which says these weapons can’t be burned during the millennium when Christ is reigning.


Before the abomination of desolation:

Ezekiel 39:6,7
And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

I don’t believe that God allows Israel to pollute His holy name during the millennium. He rules with a rod of iron. It is the fire on Gog/Magog that marks the point where God doesn’t allow them to pollute His holy name anymore. I think that means that when it happens, Israel will begin to come back to God again out of their current secularism. Of course it will start by going back to the daily sacrifice because that’s what they know and accept. But later on 2/3 will be killed and 1/3 refined through fire. Zechariah 13:8,9 They will accept Christ as the Meshiach Nagid.

Also, Chuck Missler brought up a good point. The names of our countries, they’re boundaries, and cities change over time. The one thing that doesn’t change is our ancestor’s names. Magog was a grandson of Noah. They are identified later as the Scythians. From my understanding, this was Northern Turkey to North of the Black sea and even into China at one point. The great wall of China is called the “ramparts of Gog and Magog.” I would recommend listening to Chuck Missler’s presentation on this. It’s only $7.95 to download. The Magog Invasion

Not all of Magog will be destroyed in the Gog/Magog invasion. At the end of the millennium, more descendents will again come against Christ at Jerusalem. I believe Ezekiel 37-47 is chronological. If you look at what is described, it walks through history.

Notice how Gog/Magog is nestled neatly in-between Israel becoming a nation and the chapters describing the millennium? I believe there’s a reason. God leaves 1/6 of the Magog invaders that are wiped out in the mountains of Israel. I think 1,000 years is plenty of time to build up an army again. If the ones who are left have children and raise them as they were raised, there will be an animosity against God building for 1,000 years.

Some other points to consider:

  • Israel is dwelling in peace and security when they are attacked. There are two times we know this will be happening:
    • False peace just before the abomination of desolation (I believe the security may be the false peace that will soon come that will allow the rebuilding of the temple. Perhaps this means that Israel will be allowed to rebuild the temple, and will be living securely but then will be attacked by the Gog/Magog armies?)
    • Millennium
  • There are several battles where God intervenes on Israel’s behalf. Here are three at the end:
    • Gog/Magog – God destroys the armies in the mountains of Israel with fire and brimstone from heaven
    • Armageddon – Christ destroys the gathered armies with the Word of His mouth
    • End of Millennium – Christ destroys the armies Satan gathers from the four corners of the earth
  • “In Ezekiel, Gog is buried while in Revelation the AC is cast alive into the lake of fire. Gog and his alliance of nations comes against the mountains of Israel while all nations come against Jerusalem at Armageddon.” –1whowaits
  • “Revelation 20 also mentions Gog-Magog at the end of the millennium. The conditions described in Ezek. (God hiding His face from Israel) would not be consistent with Christ’s rule during the millennium.” –1whowaits
  • “There is something a little different-Satan is released and goes out to deceive the nations of the 4 corners of the earth and he is successful. At Armageddon it is not only Satan but also the AC and FP that send out demons to gather the nations, a minor difference perhaps.” –1whowaits
  • “Could Gog be Satan’s fall guy, the one he uses to deceive the world about who the real AC is? Could Satan be the one that places the evil thought in the mind of Gog? Could this be the reason Gog-Magog and Armageddon are so similar, almost indistinguishable? Could the death of Gog and his identification as the ‘beast’ of Rev. be the cover that Satan needs to put his man in place?” –1whowaits

After the 70th week, Armageddon?:

Ezekiel 38:8-12
After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.

This passage tells us first and foremost that this takes place in the latter years. This also tells us that Israel, gathered from the nations to the land of Israel, is living at rest, dwelling safely without walls, bars, or gates. This removes the possibility of this coinciding with Armageddon because Israel isn’t even in Jerusalem at that point.

Revelation 12:14
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Some believe that the attack takes place in conjunction with Armageddon, and that’s when the armies are wiped out. However, Israel will not be living in peace in Jerusalem when Christ returns in glory. They will be in the wilderness protected from the dragon. Revelation 12:14


At the end of millennium:

Revelation 20:7-9
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Is Gog/Magog representative of all “the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth?” Or are they just a part of that army? I think that would make a difference in determining if this is the same time being spoken of. I don’t know, I’m just really cautious about what I link because I’ve been in error on it before in other matters.

Ezekiel 39:6,7
And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

From what I understand of Bible prophecy, this eliminates Gog/Magog from after the millennium. Why? The heathens recognize God through the time His wrath is poured out. Also, does that mean that Israel will pollute God’s name through the millennium?

It’s because of this passage that I view Gog/Magog as the initial clear intervention by God during the end times. This is the point where the earth has to either accept God or reject Him, but they won’t be able to deny Him because Ezekiel 38,39 are so clear. When this event happens, the world will know the God of Israel exists.

This is also why I believe Gog/Magog is what brings more of Israel back to following God as a nation. I think they will take Him seriously after that and it will spur their desire to rebuild the temple.


So given the scriptures above, here’s how the possibilities look:

  • Before the 70th week (This is still in the realm of possibilities, but I personally think it will be during the first part of the 70th week of Daniel.)
  • Before the abomination of desolation (If you look at my Gog/Magog news page, I think you’ll agree how close we could be.)
  • Armageddon (Israel not dwelling in Jerusalem, they’re in the wilderness)
  • End of the millennium (Israel and the world will know God long before Gog/Magog if this is when it happens. It seems pretty clearly stated though that this event will make everyone realize God is real and present. This doesn’t fit if Christ has been ruling from Jerusalem for 1,000 years already.)

 

Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 – Part I

What Time Is It?

First of all, let’s get some kind of time frame settled. Ezekiel’s prophecies are chronological.  Falling between the prophecies of Israel’s modern re-birth (Ezekiel 36-37) and the Millennium (Ezekiel 40-48),  the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 has to take place during a time of peace after 1948 but before the 2nd coming, and all agree it hasn’t happened yet. This has led some to see the passage as a description of Armageddon, but as we’ll see there are many prominent nations missing from this battle whereas Zechariah 14:2 prophecies that every nation will join the battle of Armageddon.  That being the case, the time frame narrows to sometime between 1948 and the beginning of the Great Tribulation, after which no place in the world will be at peace, especially Israel.

Ezekiel prophesied that the Lord would use this battle to turn Israel back to Him and to complete the return of Jews from all over the world to Israel, not leaving any behind (Ezekiel 39:28). This leads us to believe that the battle of Ezekiel 38-39 is the event that re-starts the clock on the 490-year period of time spoken of by Daniel, the famous 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24-27. 69 of those weeks (483 years) had come when the Messiah was crucified and the Temple destroyed, stopping the clock one week (seven years) short of fulfillment. I believe the dramatic victory the Lord wins over Israel’s enemies in Ezekiel’s battle will convince them to officially re-instate their Old Covenant relationship with Him to fulfill the remaining seven years of Daniel’s prophecy.  This will require two things to happen.  First they’ll need a Temple for worship. It’s this Temple that’s later desecrated by the anti-Christ, kicking off the Great Tribulation.

And second, the Church will have to disappear. Paul wrote that Israel had been hardened in part until the full number of Gentiles has come in (Romans 11:25). That means as long as the Church is around Israel won’t be able to recognize God’s involvement in their national life.  But the Battle of Ezekiel 38 will be such a miraculous victory that it will re-awaken Israel to God’s presence. This means the Dispensation of Grace will have come to an end and the Church will be gone by the time this battle comes to an end.

With all this in mind, let’s begin a careful study of Ezekiel 38-39, to prepare us for these events should they become reality soon.

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army-your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops-the many nations with you. (Ezek. 38:1-6)

The phrase “hooks in the jaw” comes from the equestrian world where a special bridle is used to make a rebellious horse obedient to its rider’s commands.  It symbolizes God forcing Russia to become involved in this battle to assure that His will is done. Persia is the ancient name for Iran, Cush and Put represent the North African nations, Gomer was Magog’s brother and settled along the Danube River in what would become Eastern Europe. The characteristic all these nations have in common today is their religion. They’re all Muslims.

“Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land. (Ezek. 38:7-9)

The fact that Israel is the target in this passage is self evident, but a controversy has developed around the Hebrew word “betach” translated “in safety” in verse 8. A secondary meaning, “carelessly” could mean that they’re not really safe but just think they are and so their guard is down.   To achieve either of the conditions this word implies would require a truly miraculous change in Israel’s current situation and for many years scholars were uncertain as to how this could ever happen.

But a little known prophecy in the Psalms might have the answer.  According toPsalm 83 all of Israel’s next door neighbors will unite in an effort to wipe Israel completely off the map.  But Israel will soundly defeat them and capture their lands as well. Enemies like Hezbollah, Lebanon, the Palestinians, Hamas, etc.  will cease to exist, and the lands they now occupy will once again belong to Israel.  (Many people don’t realize that even the land of Lebanon was originally given to Israel and will belong to Israel again in the Millennium.)

From events currently unfolding in Syria, it’s also beginning to look like the Isaiah 17 prophecy of the destruction of Damascus could be fulfilled at the same time.  Israel has officially declared that they’ll hold Syria responsible for any attack by Hezbollah, and will retaliate accordingly.

If the fulfillment of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 precede the Battle Ezekiel 38, it helps explain how Israel could be taken by surprise when the Moslem coalition attacks and why none of Israel’s next door neighbors are mentioned in Ezekiel’s line up.

Next time we’ll look at the other nations that are not involved in this battle and you’ll see why it can’t be referring to Armageddon.  We’ll also see how the Lord chooses to reveal Himself to the nations.

WASHINGTON – The U.S. government is warning that a terrorist attack is imminent on the border between Texas and Mexico, according to the government watchdog group Judicial Watch.

The group said sources have told it the Mideast terrorist army ISIS is now operating in the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, the narcotics-trafficking center located just across the border from El Paso, Texas, and it is planning to attack the U.S. with car bombs or improvised explosive devices carried by vehicles.

Judicial Watch said high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence, and other sources have confirmed that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border was issued, and that agents for the Departments of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security have been put on alert and told to aggressively work all sources and potential leads.

One source told Judicial Watch intelligence officials “picked up radio talk and chatter” pointing to an attack on the border.

The source said both ISIS and al-Qaida were planning plots, and told Judicial Watch an attack “is coming very soon.”

Another source told the group the attack is so imminent the commanding general at the U.S. Army’s Ft. Bliss in El Paso is being briefed.

A Texas law enforcement bulletin sent out this week reportedly shows ISIS is keenly aware of the porous border in the area, and social media chatter shows it has expressed “an increased interest” in crossing the border to conduct an attack.

The three-page bulletin, obtained by Fox, was titled “ISIS Interest on the US Southwest Border” and distributed to law enforcement Thursday.

That seems to coincide with what WND reported three days ago, that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security were so worried that airstrikes in Iraq could cause ISIS to retaliate in American, the agencies sent warnings to local law enforcement officials.

Friday’s reported threat from ISIS comes the day after WND reported President Obama acknowledged he has no strategy to deal with the terrorist army.

The threat also comes as Britain has raised its terror-threat level to “severe” as the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks nears.

A White House spokesman said today the U.S. has no plans to raise the threat level in this country.

However, U.S. intelligence sources told WND just last week that ISIS was training jihadis to attack targets in the United States.

Also last week, Sen. Jim Inhofe warned ISIS is “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city.” The ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee in the U.S. Senate said the U.S. now is in “the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in.”

And, as WND also reported last week, Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, warned terrorists from the Islamic State could be sneaking into Texas across the Southwest border at any time, due to the Obama administration’s failures in Iraq and in securing the border.

Pentagon press secretary, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, immediately denied any evidence of Perry’s claims.

“I’ve seen no indication that they are coming across the border with Mexico. We have no information that leads us to believe that. That said, we do know they have aspirations to hit Western targets and that we’ve got to take that seriously and have to try to be ready for it,” Kirby told CNN.

Mexican officials also quickly rejected the governor’s warnings.

“Mexican authorities have no record of the presence of Islamist extremist groups or individuals in Mexico,” said Ariel Moutsatsos, minister for public affairs at the embassy in Washington. “We take all possible measures to impede any terrorist activity in our territory.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, joined Perry to warn Americans about terror threats from the largely unsecured U.S.-Mexico border.

“The FBI director previously said … that there were people from terrorist countries who were assuming Hispanic names, and learning a few words of Spanish, and coming in,” Gohmert said. “The FBI director himself testified to that before Congress. So we know that this kind of thing has been going on. Governor Perry isn’t saying anything that’s new, it just takes a little while for the mainstream to catch up.”

The congressman added that more recently, Marine General John Kelly, the commander of South Command, testified before the House and Senate this year “that the penetration of our Southern border by criminal cartels, as well as terrorist organizations, poses, in his words, an ‘existential threat the United States.’”

Just two days ago, an terrorism expert who advises the Iraqi intelligence services said there are 100,000 ISIS recruits, much higher than the 20,000-to-30,000 estimated by most foreign observers.

Hisham al-Hashimi also said the number of recruits is growing rapidly because ISIS “is an extension of groups that existed before – historically and ideologically.”

He said recruitment has never been easier, because the organization’s leader, “(Abu Bakr al-)Baghdadi carries now the flag of the jihadi against the crusader.”

Another intelligence officer, Ibrahim al-Sumaidei, gave another reason for the rise of ISIS, saying its “members have multiplied in a very dangerous way. … Having plenty of arms and funding has made the Islamic State swallow the fighters of the other Sunni insurgent groups.”

Obama Admin To Sue Minnesota Town For “Religious Discrimination” After Rejecting Proposed New Mosque…

Socialism is not the Answer

Weasel Zippers

Take a wild guess who got Holder to sue the town . . . as most of you probably guessed, CAIR.

Via Star Tribune:

The U.S. Department of Justice plans to sue the city of St. Anthony for rejecting a proposed Islamic center in 2012.

Federal authorities recently sent the city notice of their intent to sue, and U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger is expected to announce the civil rights lawsuit alleging religious discrimination at a news conference at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The St. Anthony City Council met with its attorney behind closed doors on Aug. 18 to discuss the threat of litigation. Mayor Jerry Faust said the city turned over documentation on the matter to federal authorities more than a year ago.

The Force Behind The Pope

POPE FRANCIS DECREES THAT INDIVIDUAL SALVATION OUTSIDE OF ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DOESN’T EXIST

| June 26, 2014 | 373 Comments

THE POPE RECOGNIZES NO SALVATION OUTSIDE OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC SYSTEM

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9

Pope Francis gave a sermon on June 25th in Rome, where he dispelled any and all lingering doubt about how the Vatican views worldwide Christianity. Francis once again declared his unshakable belief that the Roman Catholic Holy Mother Church – the very same one mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18 as the ‘Whore of Babylon’ – is the one and theonly church. Listen to Pope Francis as he tells you in his own words exactly what he thinks of all Christian churches outside of the Roman Catholic Church:

“No one becomes Christian on his or her own! Is that clear? No one becomes Christian by him or herself. Christians are not made in a laboratory. A Christian is part of a people who comes from afar. The Christian belongs to a people called the Church and this Church is what makes him or her Christian, on the day of Baptism, and then in the course of catechesis, and so on. But no one, no one becomes Christian on his or her own. If we believe, if we know how to pray, if we acknowledge the Lord and can listen to his Word, if we feel him close to us and recognize him in our brothers and sisters, it is because others, before us, lived the faith and then transmitted it to us. We have received the faith from our fathers, from our ancestors, and they instructed us in it.”

pope-francis-says-no-laboratory-christians-no-salvation-outside-of-roman-catholic-church-false-prophet

In the past 2,000 years the pagan-based Catholic Church system has been the hands-down, far and away, number one murderer of Christians on the face of the earth. The Vatican murdered Christians for 300 years in the catacombs, for 300 years during the Spanish Inquisition, and will once again kill them in record numbers during the coming days of the Great Tribulation that will take place after the Rapture. Listen again to Francis as he tells you that without the Virgin Mary, and the Church of Rome you cannot know God:

“Dear friends, let us ask the Lord, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, for the grace to never fall into the temptation of thinking we can make it without others, that we can get along without the Church, that we can save ourselves alone, of being Christians of the laboratory. On the contrary, you cannot love God without loving your brothers, you cannot love God outside of the Church; you cannot be in communion with God without being so in the Church.”

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 16:13,14

Pope Francis Invokes Lucifer At Easter Vigil Mass from Now The End Begins on Vimeo.

We do hereby officially declare Pope Francis to be the False Prophet of the book of Revelation, and everything he has been doing since he was made Pope shows  this to be true. He is uniting all of Christianity under the umbrella of Rome, as well as the Muslims and Islam whom he plans on using as his muscle to carry out his edicts.

“Behold, I have told you before.” Matthew 24:25
