The Deyos are reporting that Richard Coombes passed away around 7 p.m. last evening. He only learned that he had terminal cancer a week or so ago, and it was believed that he had about 2-3 months left. Apparently, that was not the case.

What a tremendous and sobering reality that should be for all of us, for we know not what day nor hour we, ourselves, will pass away.

Mr. Coombes, author of America, The Babylon and the website Alpha-Omega Report, was quite influential in my coming to believe that America is the end-times Babylon spoken of prophetically in scripture. This belief was also held by David Wilkerson and Dumitru Duduman, among others.

Mr. Coombes will be missed by many of us who appreciate the tremendous work he contributed to us, the body of believers in Jesus Christ. May his family find peace and comfort at this time.

Richard Coombes was ready to meet his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Are you?

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord (Jesus Christ) shall be saved. -- Acts 2:21

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. --Acts 4:12

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. --Romans 10:13

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, --Revelation 1:5

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. --John 3:16


On July 25, I wrote a short post that Obama pressured Netanyahu into giving a "goodwill" gesture to the Palestinians ahead of the restart of the peace process with the releasing of 104 terrorists, some of whom have been described as "heavyweight." As Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the peace talks would be held in Washington, D.C., a prison break occurred at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, where nearly 500 prisoners escaped, some of whom had death sentences because of the brutality of their crimes.


Then, two days later, on July 27, it was reported that there was yet another prison break, this time with about 1,000 prisoners escaping from a prison in Libya.


Now we learn on July 30, that there was yet ANOTHER prison breakout of hardcore terrorists, this time from a prison in Pakistan. The Taliban rescued at least 250 prisoners, including "dozens of senior Taliban fighters and commanders" from Central Prison in the city of Dera Ismail Khan.


Since the peace talks were announced, peace talks which included the release of some "heavyweight" Palestinian terrorists as a goodwill gesture despite strong protests against the gesture from Israeli citizens, three prison breaks have occurred with about 2,000 terrorists being set free.

That is quite interesting, especially when we read that the 104 Palestinian terrorists that President Obama wanted the Israelis to release were to be released in FOUR BATCHES in a phased release program.

This from the Times of Israel:

The committee that will handle the process of four phased releases as the talks continue will be made up of Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Science Minister Yaakov Peri and Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch. It will decide which prisoners on the list of 104 will go free at what stage, determine whether they will be allowed to return to their homes or be sent into exile, and oversee the implementation. (emphasis mine)

Cabinet votes to free prisoners, paving way for peace talks

One can't help but wonder if we will see perhaps one more significant prison break -- batch for batch perhaps?

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton has weighed in with why he thinks Netanyahu is releasing the prisoners, and that is he is going to need Obama's help with Iran.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton says it is a "mistake" for Israel to release 104 Arab prisoners, but that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely making a political calculation to get U.S. help later.

The move makes sense to Netanyahu, Bolton told Fox Business Network, because he is focused on the most important issue in the region: Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Netanyahu is facing a hard decision on whether to strike, and if he does he wants to be in a place to tell Obama, "I have done everything you asked me on the Israel-Palestinian question, despite the political cost, now I want you to stand with me against Iran," Bolton said on "Lou Dobbs Tonight."

Bolton: Netanyahu Releasing Prisoners to Get US Help on Iran

Bolton may be right. Netanyahu may be pouring political capital into this very unpopular decision in hopes that President Obama will back him should he make the decision to strike Iran, but I think he may be miscalculating that Obama will stand with him. I just don't see it happening. If Obama can comfortably call four dead Americans in Benghazi a "phony" scandal, then he will also call any threat the Israelis perceive from Iran "phony" as well. We've learned here in America that Obama sees only what Obama wants to see, and if he doesn't see a threat from Iran, then there simply isn't a threat from Iran. It is what it is.

Breitbart is noting that the Palestinians did not want to return to talks, so the administration strong-armed Israel to make the Palestinians concede without receiving anything in return.

Palestinians did not want to return to talks, so the Obama administration forced Israel to make a terrible concession: the release of 104 long-term prisoners, including terrorists and murderers. Palestinians did not trade anything substantive in exchange.

Since the Israelis would receive nothing from the Palestinians for the release of the terrorists, it appears that Obama resorted to extortion: "give me what I want and I won't hurt you at the U.N."

Obama's main bargaining chip was support for Israel at the United Nations and other international forums, where Palestinians have continued to press for recognition and anti-Israel boycotts.

'Smart Power'? Obama Forces Israel to Release Terrorists, Murderers

If "what we do unto Israel is done unto us" is true, then Obama's arm twisting will come back to bite him, or us, at some point.

Though we know that talks to move the peace process are taking place, we are hearing little about the nuts and bolts of those talks, but here is a little of what we do know.

Israel, Palestinians Eye Peace Deal in 9 Months

Israeli-Palestinian talks begin amid deep divisions

Israelis, Palestinians agree to 9-month timeline for negotiations

WEINSTEIN: Israel’s troubling release of Palestinian terrorists

And Barry Roffman at Ark Codes has run a matrix on Netanyahu's agreeing to the release of the 104 Palestinian prisoners. It appears from the matrix that Netanyahu may have agreed out of fear of Obama. Roffman notes "140" terrorists. I have found in two other articles "104." Not sure how that difference came to be, perhaps a simple transposing of numbers.

“I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven … I mean I would much rather go to the other place,” Tutu said. “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

Desmond Tutu: ‘I Would Refuse to Go to a Homophobic Heaven’ and Choose Hell Instead

Stunning statement, right? The slander against the character of God is actually quite intense and obviously I disagree with Bishop Tutu’s assessment, but that is not what I wish to comment on in Tutu’s statement.

What I want to focus on is what really came out of Bishop Tutu’s mouth.

One has to go to the book of Numbers to find the odd character by the name of Balaam. When the Israelites came up out of the land of Egypt to enter Canaan the king of the Moabites was very distressed at their arrival (Numbers 22). He sent messengers to Balaam to offer him money to curse the Israelites. Very interesting story actually as it eventually involves a talking donkey. Balaam is mentioned no less than 61 times in the King James Bible, with the last reference to him being Revelation 2:14, in which Jesus rebukes the church of Pergamos for embracing the “doctrine of Balaam.”

In Numbers 22, Balaam did not curse Israel though it appears that he was trying to come as close to cursing as he could without directly disobeying God; instead, whenever he opened his mouth to speak he spoke words he apparently did not intend to speak.

Now, to Bishop Tutu.

Bishop Tutu first states that there is a heaven and the “other place.”

Then Bishop Tutu states that the God of heaven is “homophobic.”

Technically “homophobic” means to have an intense and adverse fear of homosexuals, which is not really what Tutu means here. When the accusation of “homophobic” is hurled today at an individual it has come to mean anyone who opposes ANYTHING that homosexuals stand for or care about.

For instance, if someone opposes same-sex marriage, or simply prefers traditional marriage, that person is called “homophobic.”

If someone buys a chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-a, that person is “homophobic.”

If someone watches a Kirk Cameron movie, that person is “homophobic.”

If parents are reluctant to trust their young Boy Scout with a homosexual scout leader, those parents are “homophobic.”


So when Bishop Tutu says the God of heaven is “homophobic,” he is saying that the God of heaven is against sodomy, therefore, that is why He is “homophobic.”

Bishop Tutu says he would rather go to the “other place” than go to heaven.

The “other place” is hell.

Tutu seems to be offering the rationale that since the “homophobic” God of heaven is “homophobic,” then He isn’t going to allow sodomites admittance; therefore, Bishop Tutu is willing to go where the sodomites will be, which is the “other place.”

Now, let’s name names.

The God of heaven is Jehovah.

The "god" of hell is Satan.

The Bishop calls the God of heaven “homophobic” because it is in the Old Testament of the Bible, Leviticus 20:13 to be exact, that Jehovah condemns sodomy as an abomination.

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

And sodomy isn’t just condemned in the Old Testament, it is also condemned in the New. In 1 Corinthians 6:9 Paul admonishes that among those who are unrighteous and should not be deceived into thinking that they will enter heaven (the kingdom of God) are the effeminate.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Thayer’s Lexicon at Blue Letter Bible explains the word “effeminate” here to mean a male who allows another male to use his body.

In two sentences, Bishop Tutu states a clear truth that places the entire LGBT community in an odd place.

See, if I were to go to a homosexual at my workplace and quietly, and I would add lovingly, tell that individual that God loves him but not his acts of sodomy and that without repentance he will not go to heaven but to hell, I would most likely be FIRED ON THE SPOT. If not immediately fired, I could be required to attend sensitivity training classes and most likely show some level of support for homosexuals BEFORE I could return to my position, if at all. The reason -- to place homosexuals and “going to hell” in the same sentence is considered hate speech.

Yet, in one fell swoop, Bishop Tutu, in an obvious statement of support and camaraderie with LGBT individuals, states what would get most people censored, rebuked, or even fired from their places of employment if they so much as hinted at anything similar when he says that since homosexuals won’t be allowed into heaven by Jehovah, a “homophobic” God, he chooses hell where they will be welcomed by Satan.

In his attempt to slam Jehovah and show solidarity with homosexuals, Tutu sums up and states as fact what many Christians have tried to warn homosexuals about.

Thus, the odd place Bishop Tutu places the entire LGBT community: do they decry Tutu’s statement as hate speech, especially since many believe they will go to heaven even if Jehovah is the God of heaven?

Do they decide that this time Tutu’s statements do not qualify as hate speech since it’s obvious he means well?

And If they choose that to be the case, then how do they explain that a Christian’s efforts to win them to Christ so that they may enter heaven, a place believed to be utterly beautiful and good, is hate speech, despite it being clear that a Christian means well, yet Tutu’s statement by inference is that they will be in hell, a place believed to be utterly terrifying and agony, isn’t hate speech?

And for those who do believe they are going to heaven because their sodomy is actually a demonstration of love, how do they deny Jehovah is “homophobic” though Tutu declares that He is?

What an odd place Tutu has placed the entire LGBT community, which is he is with them, and he is willing to go to hell with them.

Like Balaam, out of his own mouth, in an attempt to denigrate the Holy God of Heaven, Tutu unwittingly spoke the truth. And it won’t even be considered hate speech.

Severe weather came thru our area early Friday that took out our Internet service. When we called to report no service mid-afternoon, our provider told us a tower had been damaged and was being repaired. Early Saturday we had some service, but it was terribly slow and pages kept hanging. I was able to send a couple of emails. Then no more service until this morning.  Hope it stays fixed.

Of course, most of my readers are probably aware of and watching Washington, D.C., today as the peace talks are supposed to begin there after three years of no progress. The talks are scheduled to continue tomorrow as well.

Israeli-Palestinian peace talks to resume this week

Kerry builds a US-Arab superstructure to direct Israel-Palestinian talks – White House reservations

At a time when Obama is pressuring Israel to release about 100 Palestinian terrorists as part of a "goodwill gesture" for the peace process, I wrote on Thursday about a large prison break from Abu Ghraib in Iraq. About 500 escaped. As if that wasn't bad enough, over the weekend, I saw a report that there was also a prison break in Libya, where about double that number escaped -- 1,000. This can't be good.

Over 1,000 escape in Libya prison break: security

Desmond Tutu certainly made known over the weekend why he prefers hell over heaven. I hope to address his one-sentence declaration in tomorrow's post.

Side note: Because I had no Internet service until this a.m., links will be in the sidebar today but not updated until closer till noon. Thanks!

Should we really be surprised?

July 6, UPI reported "U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's plan to restart Israel-Palestinian talks involves Israel releasing 103 Palestinian prisoners. . . "


Israel Hayom reports that some Israeli families are speaking out about this plan.

Bereaved families say cabinet's plan to release 85 Palestinian prisoners considered "heavyweight terrorists" as part of resuming the peace talks with the PA is "a disgrace to the Israeli justice system"


R. A. Coombes noted in his two part series AMERICA-BABYLON that the prophet Jeremiah spoke of "fanners" that would be stirred up against Babylon.

"And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about." --Jeremiah 51:2

Coombes provides an extensive study of who these "fanners" might be in his two part series, a series I wrote about in my post BORDERS OR A NUCLEAR-ARMED IRAN. Since the publication of that post, Coombes has added a Part 3, which I have also linked to in that post as well.

In short, Coombes believes that Jeremiah was foreseeing a swarm of terrorists of possibly Iranian origin or with Iranian backing infiltrating into the U.S., and at a set time causing havoc.

Seems somewhat unbelievable, I know.

Until you read this: Reuters reported that on July 22, HUNDREDS of AL QAEDA convicts were busted out of Abu Ghraib in Iraq in a mass prison break.

"The number of escaped inmates has reached 500, most of them were convicted senior members of al Qaeda and had received death sentences," Hakim Al-Zamili, a senior member of the security and defense committee in parliament, told Reuters.


This is the same prison were an unknown number of inmates were subjected to humiliating treatment and photographed during the Bush administration. Those photographs were then shown around the world. It was a terrible debacle for George W. Bush and left him looking pretty bad.

If Kerry insists that Palestinian "heavy-weight terrorists," or "fanners," be released back upon Israel, will these escaped Al Qaeda prisoners be the "fanners" that come upon the United States? We have to ask ourselves: Do these prisoners hate us, the U.S., that much? or will they find some Middle Eastern town to call home and become productive citizens?

Because of Kerry and Obama, about 85-100 Palestinian "heavy-weight" terrorists will be released upon the Israelis. Now, about 500 Al Qaeda prisoners, many of them "heavy-weight" in their own rights, have escaped Abu Ghraib, technically a U.S. prison. As we do unto Israel, it is done unto us.

so says the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia.

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart reported on the ruling. Emphasis mine.

On Tuesday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that Americans born in Jerusalem cannot put "Israel" as a place of birth on their birth certificates. Judge Karen Henderson wrote that the president "exclusively holds the power to determine whether to recognize a foreign sovereign," and that the president had not recognized Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. . . .

The Obama administration has consistently refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli territory, let alone as the capital of Israel.

Story here.

As often noted on this blog and at Koenig's site and McTernan's site, as we do unto Israel is done unto us. If we refuse to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or even as part of Israel, what could that mean for our capital of Washington, D.C., at some point in the future?

It is interesting to note that the "giant corpse" flower "bloomed" in Washington, D.C., on Sunday with its smell, which is that of rotting flesh, would "peak" on Monday morning and continue for about 48 hours. This decision on Jerusalem came during that 48 hours, on Tuesday.

The Washington Post notes that the "corpse flower" is native to Sumatra, Indonesia, a place that Obama also calls his "boyhood" home.

Not my question, but the headline of an article at the Christian Science Monitor about the bankruptcy of Detroit.



. . . perhaps the worst fiscal disaster in the history of America's cities . . . For now, pension and health care benefits will be safe through the end of the year for Detroit public employees, Kevyn Orr, the emergency manager appointed by Snyder, told the Detroit Free Press Friday. . . . The move is designed to offer a period of stability before what could be a time of enormous fiscal upheaval. . . .

One of the biggest questions about Detroit's bankruptcy is what is going to happen to pensioners?

David Wilkerson, Racing Toward Judgment (1976), made mention in particular of pensioners:

3. Bankruptcies and Economic Chaos

". . . business has ground to a halt . . . " (Jeremiah 14:2 LB)

God will judge this nation with economic disasters. Critical money problems will strike large and small cities alike. State and local governments will hang over the brink of bankruptcy. (pg 75)

Financial Fiascoes

The entire nation will tremble with economic and social upheaval. . . . Pensioners will suffer the most. . . . Sales of Cadillacs, Mercedes, and other expensive cars will plummet. (pg 77) (emphasis mine)

Other cities, some of which are also facing concerning, if not frightening, financial troubles are watching what happens with Detroit.

Charles Krauthammer is also weighing in on Detroit.

Another "on the SAME DAY" event.

Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that after three years of dormancy, he has managed to propel peace talks forward between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Word is, according to a Leo Rennert article at American Thinker, the two sides will be meeting in Washington, D.C., this next week.



Also yesterday, President Obama made a surprise appearance at the White House press briefing, NOT to take questions from the press but to take a few minutes to appear solemn and pensive for the cameras and then say how the Zimmerman verdict has pained him personally because some 35 years ago he could have been Trayvon, . . . that he knows the pain of being racially profiled.

Obama made his remarks on the eve of what could be a very difficult day in America as protests against the Zimmerman verdict are planned in at least 100 major cities.


Juan Williams, one of Obama's most unfailing supporters, actually conceded that Obama's comments yesterday were "risky" and against the advice of senior advisors.


Daniel at Prayers for the People has written a few of his thoughts about the remarks made about the timing of these remarks.


John McTernan has also posted his thoughts about Kerry's announcement and the planned protests today.


In the same week as these protests are being planned an Illinois state representative made a STUNNING statement in a radio interview -- that she believes that some of the kids and teenagers killed recently in Chicago could be because of Chicago police officers, that police officers may be the ones doing these killings.


Breitbart posted comments on Obama's 'I am Trayvon' remark. Zimmerman's defense team also responded to his remark.



Friday, July 19, 2013


As often as I write on “coincidences” here at my blog, I am still often surprised at, well, the “coincidences” I see in the news.

Secretary of State John Kerry was in Israel on Tuesday to once again baby-step the peace process along.

The E.U. has been calling for a boycott of goods made in the West Bank in an attempt to financially hamstring Israel until Israel relents on the issue of pre-1967 borders. The E.U. wants that “relenting” to be very public and very loud -- something along the lines of pushing someone’s arm behind their back until they yell “Uncle!” I would think.

The E.U. has gone so far as to accuse Israel of being an “apartheid” state, therefore, the boycott of West Bank goods is necessary until Israel repents.

President Obama seems to agree as he keeps looking away while the E.U. casts stones, and Sec. Kerry has nothing to say.

Silence is approval.

In yesterday’s post I copied a Debka article dated July 17. The article was about John Kerry’s visit to Israel on Tuesday (July 16), and about the tough choice that President Obama appears to have given the Israelis: it’s pre-1967 borders or else a nuclear-armed Iran, which is it?

But there was more in the Debka article. They wrote about the economic pressure being forcibly exerted by the E.U., with the belief that President Obama is expressing his wish to the E.U. that they do so.

The last ball to slip out of his hands was the new European Commission’s new guideline for the alliance to distinguish between the state of Israel and territories outside the 1967 Green Line for the purpose of co-funding projects and grants.

This guideline is grounded in the EU’s fixed determination that East Jerusalem, Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan were illegally occupied by Israel after the 1967 Arab-Israel war. The “settlements” housing more than a half a million Jews are likewise deemed illegal. Therefore, from Jan. 1, 2014, any Israeli entity seeking European project funding or grants will be obliged to declare it has no connection, direct or indirect, with a “settlement.”

There is nothing new about this determination. The European Union has for years boycotted goods manufactured in settlements and demanded that Israel exporters label their products with the source of manufacture. Ever since 1967, the UK has withheld pensions and allowances from British expatriates living outside the Green Line until they relocate to addresses London deems kosher.

And that is only one of many examples.

However, the new guidelines have exacerbated the rift between Brussels and Jerusalem and signal a further deterioration. If in future every Israeli firm is required before every financial or business transaction with Europe to disassociate from EU-proscribed Jewish communities, then bilateral trade, whose volume has climbed to 40 billion euros, will gradually decline, with as much economic fallout for Europe as for Israel.

Now, WITHIN 48 HOURS of Kerry’s visit, Jesse Jackson, angry about the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, has called Florida an “apartheid” state and called for a boycott of Florida. EXACTLY what Obama, via the E.U., is calling Israel and wanting to happen to Israel -- loss of money thru a boycott of West Bank goods.

Here is the screenshot from Drudge dated 7/18.

The purpose of a boycott is to inflict financial pain, right? Well, in what Obama and his European Union thugs are hoping to do is cause certain “settlements” that Obama and Co. believe to be “illegitimate” to go bankrupt.

What happens WITHIN 48 HOURS of Kerry’s visit and this effort by the E.U.? Detroit is declared BANKRUPT.

And right there, on the same screenshot of Jackson calling Florida "apartheid" and calling for a boycott we see Detroit declared bankrupt.


This should sound the clarion alarm for the U.S.

And several sites have noted via "flashback" that Obama scolded Mitt Romney during the presidential campaign when Romney said he would have let Detroit go bankrupt so that the debt could be restructured. Both Obama and his sidekick Joe Biden touted as proof of where their hearts are that they didn't let Detroit go bankrupt, yet here we are less than one year after those remarks, and Detroit is, indeed, right where Obama said he wouldn't allow.

People! What we do to Israel will be done to us.

Israel most likely will see financial pain, but WE are the ones who are going to pay the heavier price. We simply cannot mess with Israel and not have something happen here. Like Pastor John Kilpatrick has said when it comes to our interfering with Israel, “It’s not prophesying, it’s predicting.”

So true!

An interview with Karl Denninger came out this week in which he noted that what is happening now, mostly unapparent to the average America who is just trying to make ends meet, is that a financial collapse is coming that “is going to be worse than 1929.”

Interesting, because David Wilkerson once said that a financial collapse was coming that was going to make the Great Depression look like a “footnote” in history. When it first appeared that was going to happen in 2008 but didn’t, I know of several people who wrote Wilkerson off.

But it appears that “we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Here is an excerpt of Denninger’s remarks:

Employers are cutting full-time employees back to part-time to avoid the requirement of providing health insurance under Obama Care. Trader Karl Denninger says, “As the Obama Administration runs against the economic reality of what they passed, they are now trying to find ways to dodge it. . . .The Obama Administration’s reaction to this has been to unilaterally, and by the way illegally, put off the imposition of mandate.”

This is not going to save the teetering economy as Denninger contends, “Bernanke has lost control of the bond market and, in general, his policy. . . . The reality is the Fed is not in charge, and when that confidence level breaks, you are going to see all hell break loose.” Denninger goes on to predict, “We are setting up for a collapse that is going to be worse than 1929, and it’s going to come sometime within the next two years. It could come as soon as the next couple of months, but it is going to happen, and there’s nothing that is going to stop it.”

Here’s the article: Nothing Can Stop It: “An Economic Collapse that is Going to be Worse than 1929?

And let's not forget to look at one other BIG story in the news that came WITHIN 48 HOURS of Kerry's visit: the IRS hearing yesterday. Peggy Noonan in her Wall Street Journal piece was truly accurate when she called one piece of information from the hearings a "bombshell," and that is that an IRS employee pointed her finger directly at an Obama political appointee. The IRS official testified that she was to send all Tea Party and Patriot applicants to this one appointee, who, it appears, for all intents and purposes, simply held these groups in a "holding" pattern thru two major election cycles so that these groups would be discouraged from having input on the outcome of major elections.  It would appear that this information takes the IRS scandal one very big step closer to the Oval Office.


I also find it interesting that I was pointing out in yesterday's post how Obama's choice to Israel was pre-1967 borders or a nuclear-armed Iran, which is it? Well, in the IRS hearing yesterday the same official who pointed the finger at the Obama appointee as the man to send the Tea Party or Patriot applications to, also said that the accusation from Lois Lerner that it was the Cincinnati office who had mishandled the applications said the accusation felt like a "nuclear strike." Interesting choice of words, don't you think?


And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. --Genesis 12:3

Thursday, July 18, 2013


I have been very saddened to read at R. A. Coombes site, Alpha-Omega Report, that he has been diagnosed with advanced liver cancer and believes he may have about 3 months left. Let's send thoughts and prayers his way.


R. A. Coombes has added a Part 3 to his 2-part series on Babylon-America. Part 3 has been added to the end of this post.

Original post date, 7/18:

(Important note added 3/4/2015: Since this post was written, R. A. Coombes has passed away, and his site, The Alpha-Omega Report, is no longer maintained, so those links are broken.)

What a choice! According to Debka, Barack Obama wants Israel to think long and hard about his stance on pre-1967 borders because if Israel isn't interested in going there, then he's willing to admit that the red line he drew for Iran's nuclear program was actually written in disappearing ink. To help the Israelis, and more specifically Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, along with their decision-making paradigm, Obama's unleashed his hounds from the E.U. to mix the party up a bit.

It doesn’t take a political genius to see how US Secretary of State John Kerry’s arrival in Amman Tuesday, July 16, for his sixth bid to bring Israelis and the Palestinians to the table, ties in with the new EU anti-Israel funding guidelines published on the same day. To avoid a head-on clash with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US president has loosed the Europeans in full cry against Jerusalem and its policies. European Union foreign affairs executive Catherine Ashton chairs the international negotiating forum with Iran. And so, the EU has given Tehran a broad wink that it is worth its while to come to a fresh round of nuclear diplomacy while Israel is kept on the run in the settlements-cum-borders dispute.

Debka does not leave its links to stories active for more than a few days, so there's no point linking to it --I've copied and pasted it in its entirety at the end of this post. Yes, I think the story is that important.

Threatening, even without outright statements, that Israel better cave to the bullying or it will have to face its worst enemy armed with a nuclear device (or devices) has placed NOT Israel, but the United States in the crosshairs of a nuclear attack.

When David Wilkerson wrote The Vision in 1974, he followed it two years later with Racing Toward Judgment, which, in some ways, was a deeper explanation of The Vision. He listed numerous warnings from others about the collapse of not only the American economy but America's social structure. About 10 years later, he wrote Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth.

Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth was not really like the first two books as the first two books outlined a series of judgments and warnings. Instead, in his third book Wilkerson specifically addressed that a nuclear holocaust is coming to the United States.

Chapter 1 begins on page 9 and is titled: The Destruction of America. The first sentence: America is going to be destroyed by fire!

Could there be a more somber and sobering way to begin a book? I am sure there are many who would read that first sentence and read no more. But that is why several times in the opening chapters of Revelation we are told that the powerful words spoken by Jesus and delivered by the Apostle John are for those who have "ears to hear." I believe this third book of Wilkerson's is no different.

America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more.

It is because America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adulter, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheating, its robbing, its dirty movies, and its occult practices.

The only thing Wilkerson didn't mention in this intensive list is America's treatment of Israel, and I believe that that is because our treatment of Israel will be the TRIGGER for this nuclear attack. As I have stated many a time on this blog William Koenig and John McTernan have both faithfully documented time and time again that what we do to Israel comes back upon us, and if Obama causes Israel to be weakened before a nuclear-armed mortal enemy, then the same will happen to us.

It's that simple.

Interestingly enough, several weeks ago R.A. Coombes at Alpha-Omega Report wrote Part 1 of a two-part series about the coming destruction of Babylon, which he believes, along with several others (myself included) that America is end-times Babylon.

Here is Part 1.

Due to some computer delays and a physical move Coombes was delayed from writing Part 2 until just a few days ago, which he now has posted.

In Part 2, Coombes describes a nuclear attack coming to the United States as part of a destroying judgment sent by God Himself.

Here is Part 2.

President Obama may not have threatened Israel directly with a nuclear device, but he is threatening (or is it promising?) to not interfere with Iran doing just that. Where I come from in the South, that is the same as telling someone, "Too bad, so sad, but I ain't got your back on this one." For those who have "ears to hear," we have to take this with great gravity.

Part 3: A Prophetic Warning to America's Pastors and Churches


Debka article, dated July 17, 2013

It doesn’t take a political genius to see how US Secretary of State John Kerry’s arrival in Amman Tuesday, July 16, for his sixth bid to bring Israelis and the Palestinians to the table, ties in with the new EU anti-Israel funding guidelines published on the same day. To avoid a head-on clash with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US president has loosed the Europeans in full cry against Jerusalem and its policies. European Union foreign affairs executive Catherine Ashton chairs the international negotiating forum with Iran. And so, the EU has given Tehran a broad wink that it is worth its while to come to a fresh round of nuclear diplomacy while Israel is kept on the run in the settlements-cum-borders dispute.

Israel is further weakened by its own internal political difficulties.

The third Netanyahu cabinet is painfully shorthanded of ministers for dealing with foreign diplomacy and national security affairs. In the absence of a foreign minister, shackled with a new cabinet which took office in February, and beset with a reshuffle of his close aides, the prime minister is obliged to carry himself most of the burden for key decisions on the essential business of state.

When he decides not to decide on any issue, that issue is shuffled into the pending tray to await his attention - and of late, this is happening too often. Netanyahu is taxed currently with keeping tabs on the conflict close to Israel’s borders in Egyptian Sinai, the threatened spillover of the Syrian war – only part of which reaches the public – and the approach of a nuclear Iran, which he admits is dangerously close to consummation. Every few weeks, he is put on the spot for fast decisions by US Secretary of State Kerry’s peace drive.

It is no wonder that Netanyahu drops some of the balls he is juggling.

The last ball to slip out of his hands was the new European Commission’s new guideline for the alliance to distinguish between the state of Israel and territories outside the 1967 Green Line for the purpose of co-funding projects and grants.

This guideline is grounded in the EU’s fixed determination that East Jerusalem, Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan were illegally occupied by Israel after the 1967 Arab-Israel war. The “settlements” housing more than a half a million Jews are likewise deemed illegal. Therefore, from Jan. 1, 2014, any Israeli entity seeking European project funding or grants will be obliged to declare it has no connection, direct or indirect, with a “settlement.”

There is nothing new about this determination. The European Union has for years boycotted goods manufactured in settlements and demanded that Israel exporters label their products with the source of manufacture. Ever since 1967, the UK has withheld pensions and allowances from British expatriates living outside the Green Line until they relocate to addresses London deems kosher.

And that is only one of many examples.

However, the new guidelines have exacerbated the rift between Brussels and Jerusalem and signal a further deterioration. If in future every Israeli firm is required before every financial or business transaction with Europe to disassociate from EU-proscribed Jewish communities, then bilateral trade, whose volume has climbed to 40 billion euros, will gradually decline, with as much economic fallout for Europe as for Israel.

Israel’s prime minister responded fast and hard to the new EU guidelines with a bitter broadside for what he sees as outside interference in the definition of Israel’s borders, in a manner which compromises direct Israel negotiations with the Palestinians. Direct negotiations are the only way to define those borders, he stressed, and the EU measure had the effect of tilting them in the Palestinians’ favor.

Netanyahu was particularly incensed by the EU dropping its bombshell on the day John Kerry arrived in Amman to pick up his mission for reviving the peace track, which he interrupted empty-handed earlier this month.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon greeted Kerry’s arrival by eulogizing his mission, accusing the Palestinians of burying it by sheer obstructionism. Ya’alon no doubt followed the line set by the prime minister.

Kerry spent five hours talking to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday night, in yet another effort to melt his insistence on Israel meeting his preconditions for a meeting.

By Wednesday morning, the US Secretary had not yet arranged to meet Israeli officials this time round.

Israeli policy-makers understand that Washington is dodging a showdown with Netanyahu by using the Europeans to clobber his policies at a moment of internal weakness in Jerusalem. Now they realize they must brace urgently for the next chapter in the Obama campaign: Ashton will build on the EU steps to get a fresh round of world power-Iranian nuclear negotiations underway by persuading Tehran that Brussels, with Washington’s backing, is in full flight of a diplomatic campaign for cutting Israel down to size.

By pulling the wires behind the European campaign, the Obama administration is after three goals:

1. Persuading Tehran to return to international diplomacy on its nuclear program by diminishing Israel’s leverage.

2. Confronting Israel with diplomatic isolation on an issue of prime importance to its security, i.e., the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran, unless the Netanyahu government agrees to concessions to the Palestinians on final borders.

3. Warning Netanyahu that his failure to toe the Obama line on the Syrian conflict and the Egyptian army coup will cost Israel dear. Instead of lining up with what is seen in the region as an ineffectual Washington, Israel struck out on its own to play ball with regional forces on the move, the Arab rulers of the Gulf and the Egyptian army. The US president has used the European Union to make sure Jerusalem understands that he too will pursue his own game - and it will be at the expense of Israel’s interests.

Wasn’t it nice to hear that the IRS “accidentally” published hundreds of social security numbers on the Internet a few days ago? Oh, my bad! It was THOUSANDS of numbers. Oh, wait! It was TENS OF THOUSANDS.

Gets better all the time, doesn’t it!


Another day, another slipup by the Internal Revenue Service.

The incident involves the unwitting exposure of "tens of thousands" of Social Security numbers, according to a recent audit by the independent transparency and public-domain group The identifying numbers were on the Internet for less than 24 hours after being discovered, but the damage was done. And unfortunately, the data-breach concerns some of the most sensitive types of transactions: Those made by nonprofit political groups known as 527s.

This article from the National Journal notes that the exposure revealed some of the “most sensitive types of transactions.” And to think, because of President Obama, the IRS is about to have their hands on even more sensitive data -- your healthcare information.

What happens if that is “accidentally” exposed? . . . on the web . . . for millions to see . . . for about 24 hours.

The “oops, we’re sorry, move along” response will be about all the IRS will be held accountable, don’t you think?

Right after Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court ruled that hatred must be the ONLY reason to oppose same-sex marriage, President Obama came out and assured Americans that he won’t be forcing any churches to conduct same-same marriage. Several commentators were quick to note that his denial probably means that he WILL force churches, in one way or another.

With an ominous title to his piece, Daren Jonescu writes in OBAMA’S COURT MARKS CHURCHES FOR DEATH:

The American Catholic Church, along with any other religious institution that resists granting "equal status" to homosexuality, is about to be killed. If you doubt this, just wait and see. The death sentence has been issued and the U.S. Supreme Court, cheered on by Barack Obama, has just denied the final appeal. . . . Barack Obama has already reassured his enemies, i.e., people of traditional Judeo-Christian religious views, that this decision will not affect their church practices. Anyone who has seen a mafia film knows what the boss's reassurance means in this context: the reassured man is about to be driven to the docks, where someone is waiting with an ice pick.

Worth the two minutes it takes to read his post.

David Wilkerson in his book The Vision (1974) actually addresses this issue.

An antichrist spirit will enter the hearts of certain men in high places, in government, and in the judicial system, causing these officials to harass independent churches, missionaries, and ministers. There is already much evidence that this harassment has now started. I see a time coming when nearly all evangelical missionary projects, all religious radio and TV programming, and all incorporated missionary societies will be so closely monitored, questioned, and badgered that they will be cautious of expanding in any area. (pg 75)

Wilkerson may have foreseen in this particular word the IRS harassment of conservative, Patriot, Tea Party and pro-Israel groups that we have seen come to light since May of this year. Since Wilkerson specifically mentions missionary and evangelical groups in particular, we may either (a) learn that the IRS has been also targeting certain church groups, OR (b) there is more to come, that the IRS harassment and badgering won’t abate despite its discovery of such actions already.

I tend to believe the latter -- the IRS will step up its efforts to harass religious groups, and I believe it will be because of the Supreme Court’s rulings over Prop 8 and striking down DOMA.

Wilkerson continued.

There is coming an attempt to tax churches and church-related organizations. Atheistic forces, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, will push this matter all the way to the Supreme Court. . . . we will eventually have taxation of churches. It will begin as an insignificant kind of nuisance tax, but will soon burgeon into a monster-size tax that will push some independent churches and missionary societies near bankruptcy. . . .

Church-related businesses will be taxed first. That will soon be followed by taxation of all church-owned properties, including parsonages. Church buildings will be exempt. . . .

The IRS may, one day, become one of the most powerful weapons against the church. It would then be possible for government agencies to maintain a stranglehold on churches. Government agencies are soon going to be delving into the private books of almost every nonprofit religious organization. Those who do not comply with stringent guidelines will be forced to shut down -- and there will be no recourse. (emphasis mine, pg 88)

Surely, the Supreme Court’s rulings are the handwriting on the wall.

Mark the day down -- June 27, 2013.

Within 24 hours of President Obama’s gloating tweet about the Supreme Court’s rulings, President Obama, the occupant of the White House, was photographed -- on a trash heap.

Many presidents of America have had a fine moment that they knew, and the nation knew, would define them as men and as presidents of America in the history books.

JFK will long be remembered for his successful stare-down of the Russians during the Cuban missile crisis.

Richard Nixon went to China.

Ronald Reagan demanded that the Berlin Wall be torn down -- and it was.

Bill Clinton is probably most pleased with his Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat handshake over the Oslo Accords.

There have been 43 presidents before Barack Obama, so there are probably 43 fine moments -- you get the idea.

But with Barack Obama, what he believes is his “finest” moment is surrounded by stunning signs of utter disgrace and shame, and he is oblivious to it.

Barack Obama flew to South Africa to begin a 3-country tour within 24 hours after the Supreme Court handed him a stunning coup over traditional marriage. His first stop -- Goree Island, where it is claimed that slaves were deported from Africa to never return to their homeland. He and his family were taken to Goree on a boat christened La Signatora. He stood in a doorway, at first by himself, then joined by his wife. After the appropriate number of photographs, he made a comment to the press about how “powerful” this moment was, and how it deeply touched him to continue his commitment to human rights, i.e. homosexual rights, around the world.

For a man who basks often in the adulation of his adoring press who frequently claim he is the most deep-thinking man alive, he has missed the “deepness” of this particular moment.

Obama has pushed hard to advance the homosexual agenda in America. Many advisors and groupies around him claim it is the “civil rights” issue of America today.

It is not. It is an ages-old sin problem that has manifested itself over and over throughout history since the beginning of time. It was dealt with by a massive world-wide flood in Noah’s time, and with fire and brimstone in Lot’s time. In the early 1980s, AIDS came out of Africa and began running its deadly course through this subculture. Being HIV compromised has opened multiple doors to homosexuals contracting and succumbing to diseases and illnesses that normal immune systems could deal with. God called it an abomination through His prophet Moses, and that designation has never changed over the millenia. And five self-satisfied Supreme Court Justices won’t change that. Nor will one narcissistic president.

The homosexual lifestyle is a lifestyle of bondage, both spiritual and physical. Homosexuals often engage in physical bondage, dressing in leather and using whips and handcuffs. A brief perusal of any fetish sites (not to mention the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras) will quickly reveal even more devices and tools that pull its victims deep into the underworld.

President Obama went to Goree Island on a boat named La Signatora. The name is French and means “the Signature.”

At Goree he stood at the DOOR OF NO RETURN as it was a place where captured human beings were sold into slavery and sent to America, and elsewhere by the way.

And that is EXACTLY what Obama has done to the homosexuals and their supporters here in America. He has cursed them by sending them thru a door of no return. Many progressives and Democrats are saying “there is no going back now” now that the Supreme Court has made the rulings it has. They are saying “Forward,” and “things will never be the same.” America, once she grants civil liberties to a group, follows the principle that rights once given should not be denied.

Obama has sent homosexuals and their supporters to a place of no return. He has sold them, YES, sold them! into bondage. He wanted their support when he ran for president, he was glad to take their money to pay his way to the presidency, and now that he is there, he is glad to give them over to what they demand, which, ironically, is UNFETTERED abandon to pursue being “true to themselves” with PRIDE. Homosexuality is anything but unfettered. Literally.

In a place symbolic of BONDAGE and SLAVERY and NO HOPE and LOSS OF HOME and LOSS OF FAMIILY and FEAR and HEARTACHE, it is the FIRST place this President stands after “winning” a massive victory for homosexuals.

Goree is known as the location of the Maison des Enclaves, or House of Slaves. Nothing could be more apropos for what Obama has done to homosexuals and their supporters. He has taken them to a House of Slaves.

2 Peter 2 has much to say about the wicked but two verses in particular seem to speak to President Obama at this time:

For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. --2 Peter 2: 18, 19

Truly, Obama tweeted with great vanity and promising liberty but instead he brings to bondage in a deep, dark place.

However, several historians have voiced their opinions that the beliefs about Goree are mythical -- not based upon true historical facts. Instead, these historians are claiming that Goree is nothing more than a GARBAGE DUMP, a place to throw away refuse.

How fitting. Only Obama could stand upon a garbage dump and imagine it to be Mount Everest.

But, you argue, OTHER presidents have gone to Goree, too. Yes, but only Obama was photographed looking pensive and thoughtful in that place, as though he has brought a deep meaning to its tragic past.

Indeed, he has.

In God’s Holy Word, the term used for a “place of no return” is "incurable."

For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous. --Jeremiah 30:12

In some patients there comes a point where their illness is incurable. It is true of some nations, too.

Obama believes the Supreme Court handed him his place in history, the defining civil rights ruling of his legacy, but instead it will be seen as garbage -- it will be his “signature,” his “la signatora.”

August 25, 2009, Daniel at Prayers for the People wrote in a post titled THE VISION: THE TRIGGER (emphasis mine):

Lately I have had the same vision playing over and over in my head. I had a vision of a person standing on the edge of a cliff. Before the feet of this person just a few inches away lay a huge abyss. This abyss was so large and deep that the opposite side and bottom could not be seen. Behind the man was an immeasurable mountain (it looked like it was made of mud, rotting flesh, and garbage found at the dump) representing the wages of gross iniquity. The volume and weight of this mountain could not be scaled, nor comprehended by the mind of man. This immeasurable mountain was the physical representation of every wage connected to a sin (debt) not washed away at the feet of Jesus Christ by a repentant heart.

Yes, a vision of a man standing on the edge of an abyss with a mountain of garbage behind him, a mountain of garbage like that which one would find at a dump! And the garbage represented the wages of gross iniquity! And a dump with rotting human flesh!

Now, President Obama has been photographed standing at a garbage dump, a place where human flesh was said to be sold into slavery.

Could this description not line up any more accurately?

What Daniel saw in his vision next should give us strong pause:

In the vision the Holy Spirit caused me to understand the mountain was the culmination of all the delinquent wages of sin perpetrated by every unrepentant transgressor, ultimately accurately reflecting the spiritual state of the nation as a whole. Simply put, this mountain is the stored up debt of sin's wages seeking payment. The payment is past due with millions rejecting the forgiveness of this debt found in the Blood of Jesus Christ spilt at the cross. Without the Blood of Jesus Christ to pay this debt, the inevitable retribution upon the nation and her unrepentant people is death. I couldn't see what was holding the Person from falling over the edge at first. I knew something was keeping the immeasurable mountain of sin's wages from pushing the Person over the edge and burying them deep in the abyss. Then I saw the word ISRAEL appear in front of the man.

At a time when the situations are as taut as they are in Syria (Isaiah told us that Damascus would become a ruinous heap) and Iran, we should be carefully watching Israel.

Daniel continues:

Then I saw Israel move slightly away from the Person on the edge of the cliff. With this the Person was pushed forward and began teetering on the edge. Flailing both arms around violently, the Person tried to regain balance. This seemed to last for a moment until the Person surprisingly regained a more stable posture.

Then it hit. Just when the Person regained a sense of stability the word Israel vanished. As soon as Israel vanished the Person didn't even have time to react, the wages of all the sin stored up against the nation pushed the Person over the edge. This mountain never stopped pouring over the edge it just kept coming. I knew the Person was completely covered under this avalanche of unpaid wages of sin.

The blessing had been removed. With the blessing removed, all the wages of sin stored against this nation of the United States of America came to a head. The result was catastrophic.

Please take what is read here before Yahweh and see what His Holy Spirit directs. Many have been blinded (by the church) to the significance of physical Israel and more specifically Jerusalem. Jerusalem affects everything we should be concerned with in the natural as believers in Jesus Christ. This blindness has caused many to miss one of the greatest signs of judgment rapidly escalating before the eyes of mankind.

Blessing removed! All the wages of unrepentant sin stored against this nation come to a head! The result is catastrophic!

How it will be catastrophic, I do not know. Meteor into the Atlantic causing a massive tsunami along the East Coast? California megaquake? Cascadia fault rips? An 8.3 New Madrid earthquake like 1811? Economic collapse, especially since arguments about money and federal benefits were the basis of the homosexual plaintiffs’ argument before the Supreme Court?  Something unforeseeable or unthought of?

I don’t know -- but I do know that there are many out there who have not bowed their knee to Baal, who are hidden away so that there does not seem to be many of us, and they speak to those family and friends who will listen, and occasionally email blogs like mine to share what they believe that the Holy God of Heaven has shown them in their quiet times -- that dire judgment is coming to the United States.

And though homosexuals mock and scorn those of us who desperately are trying to warn of where this will end, and this president is shutting down any sharing of the Gospel in the military or in his administration, and who is forcing companies to choose “this day whom you will serve” with the difficult mandates in his Obamacare legislation, God will not be mocked nor blocked.

Those who are rejoicing and partying it up in the streets now because the Supreme Court has spoken will be running terrified for cover when the Holy God of Heaven has His say.

The clearest sign of this has been the incredible heatwave scorching America’s desert southwest. An intense and brutal heat wave has settled over Arizona, Nevada and California, and Death Valley has become Ground Zero, so to speak.

With Death Valley being in the news at the same time as these two rulings, shouldn’t we consider another “Death Valley”?

Shouldn’t we consider the Jordan River Valley in which Sodom and Gomorrah and three other cities were destroyed . . . and the Bible tells us in Genesis 19, by incredible heat?

And in the news, at the same time and on the same day as the news of this fierce heat, scientists released a report noting that the shockwave from the Russian meteor swept around the planet at least TWO TIMES.

Archaeologists believe Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by an incoming meteor that exploded in the atmosphere and rained down fireballs (snares, coals of fire as Psalm 11 notes).

The ash heap of history (or often garbage heap of history or dustbin of history or landfill of history) is a figurative place to where objects such as persons, events, artifacts, ideologies, etc. are relegated when they are forgotten or marginalized in history. (wikipedia, emphasis mine)

President Obama thinks he did the country a great favor by refusing to enforce DOMA, and filing a brief before the Supreme Court on the behalf of homosexuals in their two rulings. Obama promised to be a “champion” for homosexuals in June 2009, and he has now delivered.
