Others are Preparing. Should You?

Proverbs 22:3
A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

I am not of the mind that all Christians should operate as clones, each doing the same thing. I have continually advocated that the saints of Yahshua should be led of the Spirit in all they do. I have urged the body of Christ to wait before the Father, inquiring of Him regarding His will for them at this season. One concern that I have is that many Christians have become complacent. Being in the world, and inundated with the propaganda that is flooding the world at this hour from all media sources, it is very easy to be swept away with the flood of deception, or to have one’s sight dimmed by the darkness all around. This is the Chinese year of the Water Dragon. In the book of Revelation we are given an image of a dragon who pours forth a flood of water out of his mouth to sweep away the woman (the church).

Revelation 12:15-17
And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yahshua.

Satan truly spews forth a flood of words out of his mouth to sweep people away into destruction. His great cunning is such that most are not even aware of what is occurring. The mainstream media is completely under the sway of the dragon. What is reported is a manifestation of the wickedness and deception of an adversary who has studied mankind for thousands of years. Even when it appears that the media is reporting the misdeeds of one of Satan’s chief servants, one should not be deceived. It is often a case of misdirection. Like a magician who draws people’s attention to what he is doing with his right hand, it is only to distract them from observing what is being done by the left hand. When the mainstream media seems to be attacking a proponent of the New World Order as it did during the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal, or the current focus on Rupert Murdoch, do not be deceived. Your attention is being intentionally steered in one direction to mask that which they desire to remain hidden and secret.

Consider the following: Some of the most threatening, indeed startling, changes of law have been passed by the Congress and President of the United States in recent years without the media giving any attention at all to what is being done. There is absolute silence.  For example, I recently posted the words of Congresswoman Kay Granger (She is from Texas, not Colorado. My apologies). She was seeking to alert the populace to alarming things being done in government. Following is an excerpt from her post.

Dear Friend,

With all that is going in Washington these days some things don’t make the news the way they should. Fourteen days ago President Obama issued an Executive Order that you should know about.  This order gives an unprecedented level of authority to the President and the federal government to take over all the fundamental parts of our economy – in the name of national security – in times of national emergency.

This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas – even farm equipment – can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries.  The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of “national defense.”  There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.

This elected official from the Fort Worth area of Texas begins by saying that “some things don’t make the news the way they should.” This is not due to accident, or oversight. It is by design. Wh the nation’s attention is being diverted by the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida, aided by the President’s own comments on the subject as he says “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin,” the President effectively draws your attention in one direction to divert attention from his left hand.

Observe the Left Hand

Aiding the President in this act of misdirection is a populace that is easily manipulated. Like a puppet on a string, those acting behind the scenes can guide the majority of the population in whatever direction they desire. Race issues are especially effective in achieving these covert acts of misdirection. Emotions are inflamed, making it exceptionally easy to divert attention from the real threats that are bearing down upon a nation.

It could be argued that a decadent, sensual, immoral nation will reap just what they deserve. Like the man I reported on in the previous post who ran head on into a concrete pillar that was painted yellow that had stood in the same place for years, the nation will incur great loss due to their lack of perception. As Solomon stated, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

My aim is to alert the saints to that evil which is coming. I am not a fear-monger. I do not desire to instill fear, or to incite people to acts of panic. I would exhort you to wake-up, to realize what is occurring, and to press into the Father to receive from Him His counsel and direction for your life at this season before the storm hits.

The title of this blog is “Others are preparing. Should You?” The others I specifically had in mind are ones that the media should be telling you about, but are not. Is it not newsworthy to ask why Barack Obama would deem it necessary to sign an executive order at this time giving authority to the President to take over all fundamental parts of the economy in a time of national emergency? Is there not at least one reporter who would dare ask what national emergency is foreseen that would justify such a sweeping alteration of national laws? Are there no honest reporters concerned over the language of this Executive Order that would permit the government to impress men and women into service, forcing them to fulfill “labor requirements” in the name of “national security”? Is it not newsworthy to publish the fact that the President has just awarded himself the authority to enslave the entire populace under the guise of national need?

The government is making all manner of preparation for a coming hour of national turmoil, civil unrest, and anarchy. They are aware of what is coming and have been taking definite steps to make sure they are positioned to not only remain in control, but to establish a far greater hegemony over the population. Liberty is falling at this very hour with every stroke of the pen. It only awaits the proper catalyst to execute plans that are being cunningly laid.

In previous posts I have commented on some of the more egregious acts of Congress and the President that have been passed in anticipation of an hour of crisis greater than this nation has ever known. What is coming will be more severe than the Civil War and the Great Depression together. Planning for this day is the impetus behind The Military Commissions Act of 2006 “To authorize trial by military commission for violations of the law of war, and for other purposes.” The Act uses the phrase ‘unlawful enemy combatant’ which it defines as “a person who has engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States…” Although the President assured Americans it would never be used against citizens, Congress has since ruled that the measures apply to all who are defined as ‘unlawful enemy combatants,’ and this includes citizens as well as aliens.

Foreseeing what is coming the government in 2007 passed the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act which included a section titled “Use of Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies.” This act provides for the use of United States Armed Forces to be used on American soil against American citizens. According to Wikipedia, this act declares the following:

The President may employ the armed forces to restore public order in any State of the United States the President determines hinders the execution of laws or deprives people of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

For the first time in the nation’s history, the Federal Government has during a time of peace positioned American troops on U.S. soil to be used against Americans, training them to handle civil unrest. The President and the Department of Homeland Security will have their own military force in place in readiness for what is soon to occur. I will quote from the publication Army Times.

Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1
By Gina Cavallaro – Staff writer

The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.

Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.

Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks…

This new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities…

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart…

Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown and Root has been awarded contracts totaling hundreds of millions of dollars to build detention and processing facilities across the United States. KBR also provides police and military services to the Department of Homeland Security. This information was reported in the New York Times. The explanations given for these actions all sound innocuous. It is only when one begins to see a trend developing that things seem other than as they are reported.
[Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/04/national/04halliburton.html]

One of the first acts of the 111th Congress which came into office with Obama was to pass legislation to authorize and fund regional detention facilities across the nation. The legislation can be read at the government’s website.


With the more recent National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 and the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act signed by the President, it is evident that there are people in high places who are making preparations for a time of national emergency. Following is an excerpt from the Executive Order recently signed by Barack Obama while everyone’s attention was diverted elsewhere.

The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

(1)  the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2)  the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3)  the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4)  the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5)  the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6)  the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

(b)  The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions…

Sec. 801.  Definitions.  In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:

(a)  “Civil transportation” includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities.  “Civil transportation” also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership.  “Civil transportation” shall not include transportation owned or controlled by the Department of Defense, use of petroleum and gas pipelines, and coal slurry pipelines used only to supply energy production facilities directly.

(b)  “Energy” means all forms of energy including petroleum, gas (both natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels (including all forms of coal, coke, coal chemicals, coal liquification, and coal gasification), solar, wind, other types of renewable energy, atomic energy, and the production, conservation, use, control, and distribution (including pipelines) of all of these forms of energy.

(c)  “Farm equipment” means equipment, machinery, and repair parts manufactured for use on farms in connection with the production or preparation for market use of food resources.

(d)  “Fertilizer” means any product or combination of products that contain one or more of the elements nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium for use as a plant nutrient.

(e)  “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

(f)  “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer (excluding transportation thereof)…

n)  “Water resources” means all usable water, from all sources, within the jurisdiction of the United States, that can be managed, controlled, and allocated to meet emergency requirements…

This is what has alarmed Congresswoman Kay Granger. Now, is it not reasonable for the Christian who is awake and alert in this hour to get alone with the Father and ask Him what He would have them to do that they might also be prepared for an hour of national emergency which is surely coming? I reported yesterday that Yahweh had set a sign before me (a literal sign) that “military time” is coming and is not far off. I believe there is a period of time yet in which the saint might be led of the Father to make preparation for that hour. I would ask you, “Are you seriously seeking the mind of the Father about these things, or are you lulled to sleep by the drone of the media while your attention is misdirected by a cunning sleight of hand?”

I Thessalonians 5:4-8
But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. But since we are of the day, let us be sober…

To those who would argue that a Christian should be so spiritual that they are unconcerned about days of approaching distress, I encourage you to consider how many times Yahshua exhorted His disciples to be aware of the day approaching and to act accordingly.

Matthew 24:15-21
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

Matthew 10:21-23
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. But whenever they persecute you in one city, flee to the next; for truly I say to you, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes.”

It has been a common experience for Yahweh to lead His people through times of great distress and persecution. Many have lost all worldly goods, their homes, their freedom, and even their lives in the evil days of this earth.

Hebrews 10:32-36
But remember the former days, when, after being enlightened, you endured a great conflict of sufferings, partly by being made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming sharers with those who were so treated. For you showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves a better possession and a lasting one. Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance…

The Spirit is indicating that days of distress, loss of personal property, and even loss of freedom, are near at hand. If you could mitigate your loss and the suffering of your family by paying heed to the Father, seeking His counsel and doing all He requires you to do, would you not do it?

I urge you to put away the doubts. The media may be repeating the message that the economy is stable and that employment and prosperity are returning. They may be drumming the hypnotic beat that leads to complacency, but you need not be swept away to destruction by their words. Don’t focus on the hand they are waving in front of your nose. Look to the sinister hand that is accomplishing things out of sight. Believe. Understand. Know that the prosperity, ease and comfort of the nations is soon to be shattered, and it will happen suddenly.

I have sought the Father and He is giving me guidance in this hour, and the wherewithal to accomplish it. Are you seeking Him to know His will for you?

    "I have sought the Father and He is giving me guidance in this hour, and the wherewithal to accomplish it. Are you seeking Him to know His will for you?"

    Dear Brother,

    It all boils down to your statement above for me. On December 17th of last year I posted about a dream God gave me where He said that it was time to "transition". When I read your article yesterday, I discussed again that dream with my husband. Our conclusion was the same: we need to seek the Lord to be sure we understand what that means for us.

    God's plans for us all may not all be the same, but it is imperative that we know them. Such is my prayer, that we will seek His will and be found in it in the days to come. May we all trust in His provision and His guidance for us in this hour.

    Thank you as always for being a watchman.

    "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." Amos 3:7
