A man always has two reasons for what he does — a good one, and the real one.
I have been making a regular petition to the Father recently that He might reveal to me those things which are to come in order that I might prepare my heart and align my actions with His revelation, as well as to share these things with the body of Christ that they might know what to expect. My heart has been burdened by the thought of the people of God being frightened by events taking place that they do not understand, so I have desired to share with them any understanding the Father has given to me that they might discern that He is fully in control of all things, and indeed is the One who is bringing them to pass.
Although the title of this blog posting is With Malice and Forethought, describing the activities of a cadre of evil men in bringing certain calamitous things to pass, God’s own purposes in a matter can be entirely different. In the following passage we can discern that the works of God and the works of evil men often run side by side with the intent of accomplishing distinctly different objects.
“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Yahshua the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know – this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death.”
The Scriptures testify that the Jewish leaders put the Son of God to death due to envy. They had evil motives in what they did. At the same time we are told that this was done “by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God.” In this hour we are seeing a very similar event played out. There are evil men who are seeking to bring forth plans of world domination under the inspiration of Satan. These global elite are doing the works of Satan who comes to kill, steal and destroy. Yet, at the same time, all is being accomplished according to “the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God.”
What is the purpose of God in these things? He is judging His people and the nations who have given themselves to a love of pleasure and a love of the world, who have in the process committed many abominations. At the same time He is working to bring forth a purified remnant from among that large entity that is viewed as Christendom today, in order that His Son might return to find a people who have been cleansed from the defilement of sin and the embrace of worldly idols. He will bring such trials upon the world and upon the church that His people must begin to manifest faith, apart from which it is impossible to please Him.
One of the great abominations of this late hour in the sight of God is that the people who are called by His name have embraced many false doctrines that have been used to justify a pursuit of the world and those things in it. The church is called to be as a pure virgin espoused to Christ, having her affections set upon no other thing. The church has acted as a harlot by adopting a prosperity gospel that equates material possessions and a life of ease and pleasure with spiritual attainment. The church declares her love for Christ, but her actions and focus reveal that she is very much in love with the world. This is the hour of the Laodicean church.
You say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.”
Those whom Christ loves, He reproves and disciplines. This reproof must be severe, for the people of God have manifested an intractable spirit in regard to these things. Despite many warnings and reproofs, they have hardened themselves in their deceit, and consequently the discipline must be very severe in order to loose His people from that which they cling to so stubbornly.
“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him; For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives.”
For many years, beginning in the early 1990’s, the Spirit led me to pray regularly that He might raise up unto Himself a people for His praise in the earth. Such a people have not been observed in the Western church due to the corruptions of Laodicea. Even as Christ manifested the greatest emotion when He found the merchants and money changers in the Temple of God, He is equally incensed that the temple constructed of living stones is filled with all the noise and activity of commerce and money changing in this hour. The cleansing of the Temple of God will come with great violence, for “Zeal for My Father’s house has consumed” the Son of God.
The instrument in the hand of God to accomplish this cleansing of the church will be none other than Satan and the evil men who are given over to accomplish his will. This should not surprise the Christian, for in numerous Scriptures we read of instances where God employs Satan to accomplish His purposes.
I Corinthians 5:5
I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Yahshua.
II Corinthians 12:7
Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me – to keep me from exalting myself!
There has been a plan which has been patiently executed by evil men under the inspiration of Satan to bring about a one world government. That this plan includes the subjugation of the entire world, and the loss of personal liberty and freedom, is of no concern to those who have embraced it. The goal is the control of all people and things. America has long been a nation whose citizens have known tremendous liberty and freedoms, and therefore the Constitution that has guaranteed these liberties and unalienable rights, must be cast aside and the Union established by the founding fathers must be destroyed.
Once more we see the hand of God in this. The church in America has used her liberty to pursue a course of worldly idolatry. The church has loved the world and the things in it, and therefore these things will be violently wrested from her grasp.
I John 2:15-16
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
As the people of God have embraced a love of the world, she has also embraced the Satanic principles of debt and usury.
“If you lend money to any of My people who are poor among you, you shall not be like a moneylender to him; you shall not charge him interest.”
“If one of your brethren becomes poor, and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you. Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your God, that your brother may live with you. You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food at a profit.”
“You shall not charge interest to your brother – interest on money or food or anything that is lent out at interest.”
The practice of charging interest for money loaned is antithetical to the Kingdom of God. The principles of God’s Kingdom are “Freely you have received. Freely give”; “Owe nothing to any man except to love him”; “Having food and covering, with these we shall be content.” The world system is built upon covetousness, and in order for men and women to attain the things they desire they are willing to submit to the tyranny of this fallen world system where “the borrower becomes the slave to the lender.”
Throughout history there have been men who have understood that the practice of lending money at interest is unnatural and contrary to God’s character.
The most hated sort of money-making, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself and not from the natural use of it-for money was intended merely for exchange, not for increase at interest. And this term interest, which implies the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money, because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of money-making, this is the most unnatural.
[Source: Aristotle – 350 BC]
Interest is the invention of Satan.

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a money aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken from the banks, and restored to the people to whom it belongs.
[Source: Thomas Jefferson]
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of the moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our Government to trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
[Source: Thomas Jefferson]
The founding fathers of America, although deists, understood that usury was a form of slavery. They therefore strenuously opposed the encroachment of private banks into the operations of government. The Constitution of the United States placed the right to print and coin money in the hands of Congress. No involvement by private banks was necessary, or desirable.
This led to a long fight between banking interests and the government. Lincoln fought a war against the Confederacy and won. However, when he took on the banking interests he lost, being assassinated by them. Andrew Jackson had better success. In a meeting with bankers in the White House he made the following declaration:
Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out!
This battle between bankers and the government of the United States continued for a prolonged period. In the late 1800s and early 1900s the bankers began to gain ground, led by men such as JP Morgan. JP Morgan held so much power over the financial and commercial sectors of this nation that many in the Federal government began to be alarmed.
In December 1912, Morgan testified before the Pujo Committee, a subcommittee of the House Banking and Currency committee. The committee ultimately found that a cabal of financial leaders were abusing their public trust to consolidate control over many industries: the partners of J.P. Morgan & Co. along with the directors of First National and National City Bank controlled aggregate resources of $22.245 billion. Louis Brandeis, later a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, compared this sum to the value of all the property in the twenty-two states west of the Mississippi River.
In the early 1900s, Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr, revealed to congress the existence of The Banker’s Manifesto of 1892. Some have attributed it to JP Morgan who was the greatest banker of the time, and perhaps in all of American history. Following is an extract from it.
The Banker’s Manifesto
Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination and through legislation. Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law, applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.
It is not by chance that millions of Americans have lost their homes during the tenure of the current President of the United States. There is a great power grab under way, and a people without personal savings or homes are more easily controlled. It is also not by chance that the same banks that the Pujo Commission sought to limit in their power, are today the major beneficiaries of the current financial crisis. JP Morgan Chase received the assets of Lehman Brothers in a deal brokered by the government and the Federal Reserve. Washington Mutual, AIG, and Wachovia Bank are also being consolidated into an ever smaller number of super banks that are all controlled by a cabal of bankers, the same cabal that control the Federal Reserve.
1913 was a pivotal year for the banking elite. The number 13 is a number revered by occultists, and is featured prominently in the formation of America whose Masonic founders incorporated this number extensively in the nation’s symbols. It was by design that 1913 should be the year that both the IRS and the Federal Reserve came into existence, establishing the control of the moneyed elite over the nation. Woodrow Wilson was the President who signed the Federal Reserve act into law. In later years he lamented his decision.
I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.
[Source: Woodrow Wilson]
Just before passage of the Federal Reserve Act, Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. declared:
This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs the Bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalised… The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill.
Once the money powers were in control of the nation’s money supply, having been ceded the authority to print money by the Congress, their control was then felt in policy. The Federal Reserve is not a government agency. It is a cabal of private banks and industrialists who have established a working relationship with the government of the United States. The Rothschild Bank of England is reported to be the predominant leader, and this should give America’s citizens reason to consider what ruin actually did occur in 1913. In 1790 Mayer Amschel Rothschild said:
Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation and I care not who makes its laws.
The influence of the Rothschilds Bank continues to be felt today. Paul A. Volcker, after having served as the Federal Reserve Chairman under Presidents Carter and Reagan, went to work for the Rothschilds as chairman of the European investment banking firm, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn and Co. in March 1992.
Twenty years after the Federal Reserve was created its influence upon American domestic and foreign policy had become well established. In 1933 Congressman Louis T. McFadden wrote:
Every effort has been made by the Federal Reserve Board (FED) to conceal its powers, but the truth is-the FED has usurped the government. It controls everything here (in Congress) and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will.
Louis McFadden championed a war against the Federal Reserve, seeking to get its monopoly over the nation’s money supplied overturned. He survived a couple assassination attempts before finally succumbing.
On May 23, 1933, Congressman Louis T. McFadden brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury, for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON. The petition for Articles of Impeachment has thereafter been referred to the Judiciary Committee and has YET TO BE ACTED ON.
Congressman Louis McFadden died a mysterious death in 1936. The only reference I could find of it comes from the excessively right wing rag of the time, “Pelley’s Weekly,” that stated on Oct. 14th: “Now that this sterling American patriot has made the Passing ……it became known among his intimates that he had suffered two attacks against his life. The first attack came in the form of two revolver shots fired at him from ambush as he was alighting from a cab in front of one of the Capital hotels. Fortunately both shots missed him, the bullets burying themselves in the structure of the cab. He became violently ill after partaking of food at a political banquet at Washington. His life was only saved from what was subsequently announced as a poisoning by the presence of a physician friend at the banquet, who at once procured a stomach pump and subjected the Congressman to emergency treatment.
Satan truly comes to steal, kill and destroy, and those who are in league with him operate by the same principles. I mentioned back in April that the Lord directed me to spend a month camping. For the latter part of the month I was on Jekyll Island, Georgia. It was on Jekyll Island that a group of men met secretly to discuss the formation of the Federal Reserve, a fact that is attested to in a museum on the island located in the Millionaires’ Village. Paul Warburg was the driving force behind this meeting.
Paul Warburg is not only responsible for the planning of the Federal Reserve, he also founded the Council on Foreign Relations. This “Think Tank” was fully embraced by the government as far back as Harry Truman’s presidency, and most of the recent presidents have been active members. To understand the goals of the Council on Foreign Relations, the statement of Paul Warburg’s son, James Paul Warburg, given before the United States Senate on February 17, 1950 will shed much light.
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.
Henry Kissinger is perhaps one of the most well known members of the CFR. His views on a one world government are well known.
[The New World Order] cannot happen without U.S. participation, as we are the most significant single component. Yes, there will be a New World Order, and it will force the United States to change it’s perceptions.

Henry Kissinger – Sarah Palin Interview
The surrender of America to a New World Order will not come about without violence. Tremendous crises must be created in order to move the American public to a place where they will surrender their liberty and independence in exchange for a promise of “peace and safety.”
Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.

People of God, this is where we currently are. The plans of the enemy are well advanced. The consolidation of all banking, government and religion is well underway. A greater control is being exerted over the population. Freedoms are being surrendered one by one as external threats of terrorism and fears of economic collapse are whipped up by the media. The government is expecting great civil disobedience at some point in the near future, and has already planned for it. Troops are stationed on American soil and detention centers are already established. A collapse of the economy is inevitable, and it will lead to a sudden implementation of many of the goals of these men who are being guided by the hand of Satan.
Despite all the fear mongering about how necessary it was to pass the recent bailout package, a bill that ballooned overnight from 4 pages to over 500 pages, and which was rushed through so quickly that Congress did not have time to even read it, the banking system has not been saved, nor has economic collapse been averted. What was accomplished has been compared to the economic equivalent of the Patriot Act. Massive power has been given to the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Secretary. Preventing the collapse of banking, or the assistance of the American taxpayer was never the goal in mind. All is designed to bring about the goals of the NWO.
Today’s headlines read, U.S. Bank Failures Expected to Rise. Isn’t that what the Treasury Secretary, the President, and others said they were averting with this massive bailout? Those who believed what the media was selling them were deceived. There are a growing number of people who are seeing the handwriting on the wall.
Many people are advocating civil disobedience in response to the growing threat of the complete collapse of America as they have known it. It is to be expected that non-Christians would respond this way, for all they have is the kingdom of this world. It is their home. But as Christians, we are citizens of a heavenly kingdom. We are aliens and strangers here. Our response should not be to try to defend worldly governments or institutions. We are to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this blog, God has a purpose of His own in all that is transpiring. He is seeking to purify His people; to shake them loose from the embrace of the world. This will indeed require a great shaking for many. All who would follow the Lord must let go of the things of this world. They must make Christ their focus.
The coming days will be very fearful for many, but those who have made the Lord their refuge and strong tower need no fear. Those who have been pursuing prosperity rather than the will of God will be unprepared. My prayer is for mercy to be extended to multitudes, that they might repent of their error and begin to submit themselves to the Lord.
Following is a video that I would recommend to those who want to understand better what is coming. It is Aaron Russo’s America – Freedom to Fascism. It does a good job of telling the story of what has happened, and what is coming, but the advice given at the end of the video to engage in civil disobedience is wrong minded. The video is about an hour and a half in length, but for those to whom these things shared in this blog are strange and new ideas, it would be helpful to see the many news clips and testimonies in order to discern the day we live in.
People of God, it is not a time to fear. Out of the coming turmoil the church will come forth in radiance. Her soiled garments will be replaced with robes of righteousness. A pure devotion to Christ will replace the double minded condition that exists today. Babylon will be cast down and Zion will arise. There will be great opportunities to minister to the needs of others, as well as to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom.
After the apostle John received the witness of all the things that were coming upon the earth, many of them devastating, he concluded with these words:
Revelation 22:17, 20
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost… He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Yahshua.
