Rise of the Superpresident

https://images.thetrumpet.com/570439da!h.355,id.13733,m.fit,w.640

 

Bypassing the checks and balances imposed by America’s founders, the executive branch has come to new heights of power.

Historians may look back on Jan. 14, 2014, as a tipping point in American history. On that day, President Barack Obama urged his cabinet to help him identify ways to advance economic recovery by circumventing the legislature.

“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need,” the president told reporters before his cabinet meeting. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”

No president since World War ii has openly justified executive overreach by saying that it was necessary to circumvent legislatures because they refused to do what he wanted!

The Worst Foreign-Policy Blunder in American History

The Obama administration has given the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation in the world a clear path to nuclear weapons.

The world became a safer place on January 16, according to United States Secretary of State John Kerry. That day marked the implementation of the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. and the European Union lifted sanctions on Iran and released about $100 billion in frozen assets—and they received nothing in return!

This cataclysmic foreign-policy blunder is the first day of the worst suffering ever on this planet! “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).

The Iran deal contains bad news and good news. The bad news is that Iran is now capable of triggering World War iii (Daniel 11:40). The good news is that Jesus Christ will return to stop mankind from annihilating itself (Daniel 2:44). Continue reading

The Coming Blood Moons

Note: This post from April 10th of 2014 has now been reposted and will remain on top until the final blood moon has come to pass.

20142015bloodmoonsexplained

No matter what walk of life you come from, there comes a time when something extraordinary needs special attention. This one falls in the way of Bible prophecy.

The following article relates to the four blood moons, or Tetrad, that are coming, all on major Jewish holidays. While this could be explained further into depth here, with our without this feature article, the article itself best describes the upcoming events, the significance, and why it’s more than just a coincidence.

(The article is in its full entirety, minus a few photos, and shall remain at the top of all articles until April 17th, 2014.)

Sunset of the Nation-State

An article too good to post only a piece of:

https://images.thetrumpet.com/55d782de!h.355,id.12232

 

Brace yourself for the most fundamental world change in 200 years, all foretold by your Bible!

If you were to look on the geopolitical horizon, it would appear we are heading toward a dark abyss. The dimming light has been noticeable for awhile, but the bright achievements of the past kept the future illuminated. Yet we are quickly coming to a point when a fundamental change in world order will bring about the worse time on Earth. We will have to pass through the night to get to the dawn.

This geopolitical twilight is partly being precipitated by the demise of the nation-state. The days of empire are returning. The age when people could enjoy the autonomy to govern themselves freely, while enjoying unique freedoms and protection from aggressors, is passing. This is a fundamental change to the established world order.

By examining history, current events and Bible prophecy, this important trend becomes crystal clear.

You need to know where events are leading. This geopolitical shift has everything to do with your future. No matter where you live or what you do, this change will affect your life in a dramatic way! Continue reading

President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal is proof that we are living in Bible’s ‘End of Days,’ former Rep. Michele Bachmann claims

Bachmann, in an interview over the weekend on Jan Markell’s evangelical radio program “Understanding the Times,” said the controversial deal will help bring about the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

“All the nations of the world signed an agreement that slams the door against Israel and opened it up to enriching and empowering the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world, whose ultimate goal is the annihilation of the Jewish State,” Bachmann, who unsuccessfully ran for President as a Republican in 2012, said on the program.

Iran Gets a Stranglehold on the Middle East

https://images.thetrumpet.com/54ff341f!h.440,id.11624

This terrorist nation has become the gatekeeper of the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.

Yemen is one of the most strategically important countries in the world. Recent developments there have shocked many people and will have dramatic effects that extend far beyond the Middle East.

In January, the Houthis, a rebel group sponsored and directed by Iran, overthrew the pro-American Yemeni government. After they conquered the capital city of Sanaa, throngs of Houthis began chanting “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” These are exactly the same battle cries that Iran uses. Continue reading

Why China Won’t Stop North Korea

An article from 2009 that hits the nail on the head in explaining the true relationship between China and North Korea. North Korea is a Chinese proxy which serves to keep America distracted from the main threat: China. As time has passed by since this article was written, North Korea has also exponentially increased as a threat toward the United States as well.

 

North Korea has nukes, and China isn’t worried. Something’s not right.

Understandably, America and its allies in Asia are alarmed by Kim Jong Il’s apocalyptic ambitions. Shortly after Pyongyang conducted its nuclear test on May 25, it turned South Korea into a nervous wreck by threatening a “strong military strike,” and saying that its 56-year cease-fire with Seoul no longer applies. Nearby Japan is so alarmed Tokyo is chattering about the need to develop its own nuclear arsenal. Concerns over North Korea’s nuclear belligerence reverberated throughout Asia.

Except in China.

The Church That Swallowed a Church

So far, you can say six out of eight predictions are correct.

From 2010:

 

“Protestantism will be absorbed into the ‘mother’ church—and totally abolished” (Plain Truth, October 1961). Herbert W. Armstrong—the founder of the Trumpet’s predecessor, the Plain Truth—made that bold prediction 48 years ago. On Oct. 20, 2009, the Vatican unveiled plans to do just that.

In a press conference at the Vatican, Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, announced that the Catholic Church would offer a free ticket to Rome for all Anglicans who choose to reject the policies of their liberalized hierarchy. He offered membership of the Church of Rome to those who choose to convert, with the historic concessions that they may keep their Anglican practices and that married clergy may be accepted as priests in a newly established Catholic/Anglican community.

The move was bold, as swift and as sudden as a blitzkrieg frontal attack. With it, Pope Benedict xvi struck at Anglo-Saxon Protestantism’s leading light, the Anglican Church, blindsiding a weakened and divided Anglican community.

America: Why Race Riots Are Inevitable

A 2011 article that couldn’t be more relevant today:

Note: Most of the article will remain posted.

 

Some of our leaders are right now igniting the spark that will set America on fire with race riots and civil unrest.

Most Americans refuse to think seriously about how close this country is to experiencing race riots and large-scale civil unrest.

We meet all the criteria: rising unemployment, overloaded and failing social systems, mass discontent and uncertainty, loss of faith in leadership, a cultural disdain for law and morality. As these problems intensify, they’re fueling tension, even deep-seated hatred, between blacks and whites, rich and poor, and Democrats and Republicans.

Look around: The kindling is set. All that’s needed is a lit match.

The Silk Superhighway

Five years old, but vindicated, still quite relevant and accurate:

 

Who is China’s largest trading partner?

If you guessed the United States, you’re wrong. It’s the European Union.

If you got the first one right, here is another question: Who are the biggest exporters in the world? First place goes to the European Union. Second goes to China. Third would then go to Germany if it wasn’t already included within the EU. America comes in at a distant fourth place, followed by Japan.

The world has changed. Not long ago, America was both the largest exporter of manufactured goods and the world’s most important economy.

Yes, a shift is occurring—and it is titanic. Today’s global power centers of manufacturing and trade have swung back to Europe and China. The most important and lucrative trade routes are once again between the old world’s East and West. The modern Silk Road is swarming with the new merchants.

Vatican Warning: Don’t Be Pontius Pilate

Don’t abrogate the responsibility to prevent radical Muslims from murdering Christians.

Western people and institutions could do more to prevent the slaughter of Christians, a Vatican cleric implied on the day after al-Shabaab’s Muslim militants besieged a university in Garissa, Kenya, and discriminately killed Christians. Continue reading

Easter ‘Blood Moon’ to turn sky red this weekend – but was it predicted in the Bible?

Only God knows what the future holds with Blood Moons. However, don’t be surprised if you wake up on Easter Sunday to the news of a sham Iranian ‘nuclear deal’ being reached. It will threaten Israel’s existence and endanger the world over. Perhaps it will be something else, such as a market crash the following Monday, or maybe nothing at all. It’s in God’s hands as he is in full control at all times.

This is not to say the end of the world is coming and the sky is falling — because it’s not –, however, Blood Moons are not a coincidence or a crackpot conspiracy. Whether one believes it is to their benefit or detriment. Like a watchman, Global Geopolitics only warns that the sword is coming and it’s not an issue of ‘if’ but ‘when’. The rest is on you. Get your house in order and get right with God.

Blood Moons are indeed Biblically tied:

Genesis 1:14

Joel 2:30-31

Matthew 2:1-2

Matthew 2:9-10

Matthew 24:29-30

Luke 21:11

Luke 21:25-28

Revelation 6:12-17

Revelation 8:12

Revelation 16:8-9

They have seized the public’s attention. What does the Bible really say? The answer may surprise you.

In case you have not yet heard about blood moons, here is what’s going on.

This past April 15, the first of four unusual lunar eclipses began. They will occur at approximately six-month intervals—the next being October 8, then April 4 and September 28 of next year—and will be visible across North America. Astronomers call this a lunar eclipse tetrad. The last tetrad occurred over 2003 and 2004. Eight more such tetrads will occur before the year 2100.

Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (nasa) consider the most notable thing about the current tetrad is the fact that all four eclipses will be visible to most Americans, assuming the weather cooperates.

However, a large portion of the American public is keenly interested in the tetrad for more than the artistry created by night sky astral body dancing.

Two bestselling, prophecy-leaning authors believe the tetrad is directly related to a prophecy found in Joel 2:31: “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes” (English Standard Version). These two men and their books—Blood Moons by Mark Biltz, and Four Blood Moons by John Hagee—have received widespread media attention because of the fervor and alarm they have created among religious-minded people.

Is it possible this astronomical event has something to do with dramatic end-time prophetic events? The answer may surprise you. Continue reading

This is the end? Pope gives up cryptic hint

Apparently Global Geopolitics isn’t the only site pointing out the pattern of this eerie prediction from the Pope.

This makes you wonder if he’s is dropping hints as if he knows its is fate to be the last pope and is going to be a martyr. Pope Francis has talked numerous times about not being the pope very long, is aware of assassination attempts and isn’t afraid to be out in public without a ‘pope mobile’, etc…

With all the talk from ISIS wanting to conquer Rome, one has to also wonder if they don’t have a dirty nuke ready for the Vatican. If Francis is ‘the last pope’ then there will obviously be no Vatican as it’s difficult to see a successor taking over when there is none.

How this one will play out is anyone’s guess. Only time will tell and God is in full control.

 

An author who successfully predicted Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation now is suggesting Pope Francis may be a believer in an ancient prophecy that foretells disaster for the Roman Catholic Church.

The pope unleashed an international frenzy of speculation when he recently commented, “I have a feeling my pontificate will be brief. … It is a vague feeling I have that the Lord chose me for a short mission.”

Horn stated, “The comments by Pope Francis regarding possible assassination or retirement and that he may not be the pontiff much longer make me wonder if he is a believer in his role as the last pope (pope No. 112 in the ‘Prophecy of the Popes’), which speaks of the destruction of Rome.”

Are These the ‘Last Days’?

(Melissa Barreiro/The Trumpet)

 

Look at world events, and it’s clear why many are asking this question.

Are we living in the “last days” described by the Bible? Some people will immediately answer: Surely not! Where are the supernatural heavenly signs? Where is the global cataclysm? This generation hasn’t even experienced a world war! So, because the biblical tribulation has not happened yet, neither is it going to happen. That’s how people reason.

But look at this world! Nuclear proliferation. Arms races. International terrorism. Mass beheadings. Sexual enslavement. Anti-Semitism. Racial division. Disease outbreaks. Economic implosion. Moral decay. Catastrophic storms, earthquakes and tsunamis. Then look at the Bible.

Compare the two, and you will begin to wonder: Are we living in the last days? Continue reading
