Comet a portent of doom



Portents of Things to Come

    I received a letter from a young woman the other day who signed her name as "Mom". (See Winds letters). She reports that at her young age she has never known a society that respected women who are mothers--women who enjoy staying home and taking care of their little ones rather than having a "profession" of some sort.

    It is true that our current generation has never known some of the greater blessings in life. They grew up under a steam roller. They think a steam roller is normal. If you will permit me, I would like to reminisce a little bit and consider some of the things we now face as well. I would like to remember how it was when I was a young person four decades ago as compared to present time. Of course my older family members have greater stories to tell than I, but I will try and make it plain enough.

    Modern society tends to view normal behavior as being "square". This context of things drives the younger generation into deeper and deeper trouble since being "square" is something to avoid. When I grew up, Mom was always home. My dad made about $400.00 per month and our house payment was $92.00 per month. The main wage earner, which was usually the father, made enough money for the necessities of life. At the high school all the girls wore dresses and it was pretty general then that men were men and women were cherished. Of course, there were always exceptions, but I speak of the general public view of things. In regards to this, I was raised in suburban Los Angeles rather than in a protected country town.

    In the 50's the president of the United States may not be agreed with all the time but he was respected. Men may have had strong views in opposition, but there was a certain awe in regards to the leaders of the country. The citizens seemed to have a general regard for others whether they were of the same camp or not. All of this was true in a far greater extent when my parents were teens. You would never hear of the sexual exploits of the president or a description of his private parts in those days. Things such as this were never discussed.

Depression era, FDR memorial, and a food line.


    During the Great Depression about 90% of the population lived on farms. Today it is about 10% or less. When the Great Depression hit, it was not as terrible as generally described these days. Certainly some folks had a rough time of it, but it was only the money that took a hit. My uncle, who lived on a farm, did not even know a depression was going on. One might realize that in a depression chickens still lay eggs; the crops still come out of the ground.

    The New Deal was partially to blame, as it was FDR's policy to leave mountains of food to rot in the name of agricultural price supports, while the unemployed in the cities went hungry. The government had large supplies of food, literally mountains of potatoes and other crops that it held back from general distribution. Our nation has for generations been preparing for the financial cult that now rules the world, so financial crisis may happen at the whim of this cult. It is true that many of the city folks were unemployed and had to be sent to government labor camps called WPA, CCC, or some other program, but this problem was not so severe with the majority of citizens. These days the same depression would have disastrous results since we no longer have money with real value and the great portion of the citizenry live hand to mouth. The people these days are paid largely with numbers stored on computers and these numbers are used in exchange for necessities. They have no chickens.

    The educational system today seems to dwell on the horrible conditions of years gone by and how wonderful things are getting now with all of the equality coming in, but this is far from the truth. The world will always have those who are racially prejudiced and it will always have those who are not. In my home, there was no racial prejudice ever witnessed by me. I never heard an evil word spoken against any man. When our neighborhood began to racially mix, it made no difference to my dad at all. He played ball with all of the kids no matter what color they were. This was more common in those days than not.

    I have never seen a time when women have so little respect as they do now. The film industry, along with the educational system, have made our women virtual hunks of meat and, by and by, they will be raped as easily as noticed. Women in general have bought the story of the "new system" and that has put them under the feet of the offender rather than on a pedestal upon which they once stood. In those times most families were close and united and their men took pretty good care of them. When families began to disintegrate and the male and female relationship became antagonistic, it seemed reasonable to allow women to vote. Instead of voting in family blocks, everyone felt the need to vote individually. Modern education and the media portray the women's suffrage movement as a progressive one in oppressive times, but, in reality, there were far more good things in the marriage relationship then than there are these days with all of our professed civil and human rights. All the propaganda about "rights" have left us with almost no rights remaining, leaving us to be ruled by radicalized and opposing "rights" factions."

    The nation will soon collapse and it will be seen just how many of these new "equalities" actually exist. When the system crashes, our own neighbors will be our enemies. Women will be raped at will. Men will kill each other as easily as they step on a bug while competing for what little food is available. Most Americans today never consider what would happen to them if the trucks that transport food into their cities came to a halt. They think food comes from the market. They never think what might result when the water is turned off. Literally millions would have useless homes since they have become so dependent on outside utilities. Consider the roads out of town being blocked. How could one exit Los Angeles and where would he go if he did? Crazed mobs would be roving about, looking for food and water and destroying anyone who gets in their way. If one thinks his gun will protect him, he is mistaken.

    Our society has been systematically demoralized for about the last one-hundred years but, for myself, the Vietnam War was the great turning point. The New Order devotees have succeeded in ruining the country. That's right, it cannot be fixed. There is no way it can return to its days of glory regardless of what the various political and patriot factions think these days. Today's population does not even know how to think right. Even the loyal, conservative, flag-saluting Americans are sadly removed from even remotely grasping the situation as it really is.

    When a nation cannot respect its leaders, it cannot stand. The rock that supported our republic is now sand, worn down through years of neglect and because the population has been drunk on its own amusements and toys. It is true that years ago there were not so many toys as there are now, but, then, we had something better than toys. Now it is over, now the deluge.

    How does one know that time has run out for us? There are several portents we might observe. One portent is that the national leaders themselves believe it even though they aren't saying it. The national leaders believe a significant segment of the population would love to kill them if they could. One can know this by the bodyguards, protective shields and barricades around national figures. They may fill their barricades with flowers but they are not hidden. Oh, yes, the news makes it look like they are right out in the open, but they are right out in the open to only a few or in a very controlled crowd.

    Another portent that can be seen is our government's low regard for people. In recent weeks the police have made siege against Shirley Ann Allen who is a resident of Roby, Illinois. The state wants her to see a psychiatrist and she does not care to, so they have surrounded her. They have shut off her water, food and other life sustaining untilities. They have played loud music to cause her to come out just as was done to the Branch Davidians. Think of this for a moment. What if some relative or friend of yours considered you a little off the wall so they had the army come in and lay siege to your house until you came out. I cannot remember this ever occurring before the 90's. This is a new day for sure, but it is not as so many suspect. The incidents such as this, which are increasing as time goes on, are for a very useful purpose. I will let the forces involved explain it themselves.

"The revelation of our dictator may actually come before the destruction of the Constitution. The moment for this revelation will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the unpredictability and incompetence of their political leaders - a matter for which we shall arrange -will clamor and cry, 'Away with them and give us one ruler over all the earth [U.N.] who will unite us and eliminate the causes of discord, frontiers, nationalities, religions and national debts who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find with our present rulers and representatives.'

"You, yourselves know perfectly well that to cause the peoples of all nations to desire such a thing, it is absolutely necessary to cause trouble and discontent in the relationship between the people and their governments. It is critical that the people become exhausted with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy, even the use of torture, starvation, inoculation of diseases, and poverty - leaving the nations no other vision than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty which is the control of money and everything else. But if we give the nations of the world any breathing room, the moment we long for will likely never arrive." (Protocols ).

    Simple, isn't it? We can be sure that our government is full of liars and those who are secretly purposing to destroy our country, but it is for a very "good" purpose in their eyes. They want to throw out all sovereign nations in favor of the United Nations. That may sound good to some but it is wrought with danger. You see, once the nation is overthrown, so is the Constitution. If you stand in the way of this new system, it will simply mow you down. No possibility for lawful recourse then. Those who do not agree in going along with the new powers will be slated for death. It says so in the Scriptures. "(He) causes all who will not show reverence to the image of the beast should be killed." Rev 13:15. According to CNN the U.N. is still murdering Iraqi children. This Iraqi nation does not show proper respect for the beast so it has been slated for starvation until it does. If any of us get in the way, the beast will do the same to us. We are all Iraqi chilren. When the Branch Davidians were attacked, those in power showed no real concern for the children at all. The children got gassed and burned along with their parents. Has it not been written, "as you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto me." The U.N.'s "Save the Children" should be renamed, "Starve the Children." The U.N. cares nothing about children at all except how it may merchandise them and use them for its own purposes.

    What has brought us to this state of things? How did we get in this mess that we are now in? Well, it's not too hard to tell. Back in the old days, about 1850 or so, there was a religious movement appearing which taught that mankind should keep the commandments of God. That included the Sabbath which is part of those ten commands. Most Christians then were keeping Sunday. Instead of keeping the commandments, the preachers began to say that the law of God was "done away with". That surely brought in a flood of corruption. If the law is done away with, as these false prophets proclaimed, then the national order was done away with as well. From those days morality in this country has been steadily declining. Men even kill thinking they do God service. This surely happened in the Gulf War. Our nation today is the pit of hell instead of the noble giant she could have been. Every nation on earth is corrupted by us and it can be traced largely to the noble white-haired prophets who still say, "the law is done away with." So if one would like to know how we got here, just look at the minister of the corner church who still says, the law is done away with.

    Now there is no law. Some boast of the Constitution but that is a laughing matter. Just a few years ago the Constitution was used to show that abortion was illegal. These days the same Constitution is used to say that it is legal. The Constitution is the tool used to whip us back and forth. We are given free speech to spout all manner of corruption into the society, but religious speaking is very controlled. One may give condoms out at the schools, but not Bibles. No, our Constitution has been thrown out long ago. This, also, has been well stated.

"The Constitutional scales of balance in these days will shortly break down, for we have created them with certain lack of accurate balance. This is causing them to oscillate continually until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The nations are under the delusion that they have welded them strongly enough and they believe that the scales will eventually come into equilibrium." (Protocols).

    You see, the Constitution has been built to oscillate back and fourth. It is interpreted by the lawyers and the courts to literally wear us all out.

    There are other portents I might mention. Some readers may be interested in them. There seems to be a great following of the writings of Nostradamus but there are far simpler things that we might observe. The Dead Sea Scrolls serve as an indicator if one has eyes to see. These documents were secreted away from the Romans sometime around the time of Christ. One very special document is from the Melchizadec Texts. It's calledThe Last Jubilee Sermon.

Inside the Holy of Holies of a Jewish Sanctuary.


    The Scrolls speak of a final Jubilee. In the Jewish economy, as well as in the Scriptures, a Jubilee period is 49 years. Ten Jubilee periods would be 490 years and four of these epochs would be 1960 years which would constitute an age of time. This last age began in 34 A.D and ended in 1994 A.D. The final Jubilee period of this age would be from 1945 until 1994, or 49 years. The last week (seven years) of the last Jubilee period would be from 1987 till 1994. The Dead Sea Scrolls predict that in that week of years all would become as hell and the judgment would begin.

    "At the final jubilee, therefore, God will in fact be restoring them to what is rightfully theirs... All this will happen in the final week [1987-1994].... When, therefore, the scripture speaks of a day of atonement to be observed in the seventh month, on the tenth day of that month (Lev. 25:9) what is meant, in an eschatological sense, is that this final jubilee will be marked by a day on which all the children of light and all who have cast their lot with the cause of righteousness will achieve forgiveness of their sins, whereas the wicked will reap their deserts and be brought to an end.

    "This is the era which Isaiah terms the Year of Favor (Isa. 61:2) - that is, the one designed by God's favor, for the King of Righteousness - which is what, by his very name, Melchizedek prefigures - to come into his dominion. He will take the lead among God's heavenly saints in executing the various sentences of judgment, as it is said in the songs of David: God has taken His stand in the council divine, among the beings divine, to render judgment (Ps. 82:1).

    "...The visitation of which I have been speaking is the same as the day of retribution of which the prophet Isaiah speaks in the words: How fair upon the mountains are the feet of the herald who proclaims 'Shalom! (peace)', the herald of good tidings who proclaims 'Salvation'! who says to Zion, 'Your God has now claimed His kingdom!' (Isa. 52:7), for the word shalom may also be read Shillum, 'retribution' as who should say, 'All is hell!' rather than 'All is well!'

    "...At that time [the final week of years], it will be from Belial, not from God, that men will turn away in rebellion, and [also] there will be a reestablishment of the reign of righteousness, perversity being confounded by the judgments of God. This is what scripture implies in the words, Who says to Zion, Your God has now claimed His kingdom! (Isa. 52:7), the term Zion there denoting the total congregation of the 'sons of righteousness' - that is, those who maintain the covenant and turn away from the popular trend, and your God signifying the king of righteousness, alias Melchizedek redivivus (revived), who will destroy Belial. Our text speaks also of sounding a loud trumpet blast throughout the land on the tenth day of the seventh month (Lev. 25:9). As applied to the last days, this refers to the fanfare which will then be sounded before the messianic king."

    Simply stated, all this means is that in the last Jubilee everything will come to its appointed place. In this last Jubilee the United Nations was set up - that "abomination that makes desolate." In the final week (1991) it solidified its kingdom when communism fell and the Gulf War was fought. That was the time when all of the silly ministers tied yellow ribbons to trees. Also, the abomination has been exposed. Further, all has become hell. The judgments are in the land. At no other time in our modern history have things generally become so universally corrupt. It might also be stated that at no other time is the truth of it so clearly seen.

    This is the judgment in that we see what is happening in the world. The hidden forces are exposed to the light and their evil deeds are no longer secret. It is written: "Therefore have I cut them down by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth." Hosea 6:5. This is the judgment of wickedness in that it is seen for what it is, exposed to the light as it is, and, finally, condemned for what it is. Perhaps the reader never thought it would end this way.

Constellation Virgo in the heavens


There is one more portent you may appreciate. In the book of Revelation, Chapter 12, it says,

    And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days."

    If one reads this according to its true interpretation, it says a great portent was "being seen" in heaven. Well, just look up. This year, and for a few years now, that very portent appears in the heavens. The Virgin (the constellation Virgo), at the time between Rosh ha Shannah and Yom Kippur named the "Days of Awe," appears in the heavens, clothed with the sun and the moon right at her feet. Also, not far from her is the constellation Draco (the dragon).

    What all this means is that there is a portent in the heavens which can help us to notice our times. In a couple more years it won't line up quite right to perfectly express this warning. What it portrays is that God's people are about to be delivered. It also shows how the dragon, well describing the United Nation's forces, seeks to destroy this birthing just as soon as it happens, so God provides a place for His children in a wilderness place.

    For those who need signs in the sun, moon and stars, you have them. For those who need Scripture, you have it. For those who need to use your good sense, you can see it by that. One may prefer to go on sleeping, but it is written for you, Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead". Isa 26:19. Quite simply written, many folks who have been sleeping will awaken now.

    So, what is the solution? There surely is no cure, but there is something the true-hearted will do. The Scriptures say it: "Come out of her my people so that you do not participate in her sins and receive her plagues." How does one come out of her? Simple enough. Stop playing her game. Do not go into debt; do not send your children to their corrupting schools; do not pay for their armies of destruction. If you do, you go to the bottom with her. Playing along with the beast when you know better is what it means to take the beast's mark.

    The new world forces believe that they will indeed bring about the destruction of the Constitution and the government. They are correct in thinking this, but they miss one important thing. They, also, will go to the bottom in the final collapse with all of those they have deceived.

    Well, now you have it. These are a few things I have noticed through the years. I didn't expect the end of the world to look like this, but it seems fair enough. I always thought some awful, sudden, visual event would bring the end of the world. It did not occur to me in my young years that it would sneak in and men would end up destroying the world themselves.
