The following article presents insight into the timing of World War III, an event which will occur in our near future. This is not a prophecy regarding the timing of the next Great War; rather this article presents a wealth of information which leads to only one compelling conclusion.
Our nation has never been ready to fight a nuclear war; in fact we have never prepared for one either. America has no bomb-shelters, no civil defense education, no war preparation drills. Rather America relies upon a single defensive strategy against the threat of nuclear war – the theory of mutually assured destruction, known by its acronym, MAD. Americans were taught to dismiss any threat of war because anyone who would attack us would face certain annihilation. Thus the risk of America being attacked was reduced to impossibility.
The American people were assured there is no real threat to America – and so the thought of a nuclear war was dismissed out of hand. No one stops to consider that America’s only defense against a nuclear war continues to be based upon a relic theory from the Cold War era. When this theory is examined in light of modern military weapons and the changing balance of power in today’s world, the MAD theory could be better described as ‘insane’.
THE NORTH KOREAN THREAT
North Korea publicly broadcasts their intention to turn America into a heap of “ash and rubble.” The same chorus of death is heard throughout Islamic nations. Our enemies talk constantly about our destruction as their people chant “Death to America.” There is nobody in the US shouting “Death to Iran” or “Death to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.” Yet America is portrayed as an aggressor within the propaganda of these rogue regimes. Why? In order to justify the coming war against us; and that much should be obvious.
Russia and China are now holding huge civil defense drills, while educating their own people on the protective measures required to survive a nuclear war. Our nation takes no such precautions, we have no such training. The majority of the American people are blissfully ignorant of the true threats we face. The public has been tragically deceived and is now hopelessly misinformed; having chosen to believe lies, they close their eyes to the truth.
HIDING FROM THE TRUTH IN AMERICA
Present day Americans, by and large, value their comfort more than the truth. Jeremiah speaks of such people, whose eyes and ears God has closed. They will not repent and therefore they cannot be healed. Only a remnant survives and our time will be no different. “I will make them drunk that they may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the LORD. I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams with he goats. How is America Babylon taken! And how is the praise of the whole earth surprised.” 
There are many reasons why war is coming soon; I will address just a few. First, the financial position of the US is that of ‘a camel waiting for the proverbial straw’. US indebtedness and fiscal imbalances, which can never be repaid, rest upon a foundation of imported capital, and are no longer sustainable. And if they were to continue, the cost of sustaining them would be borne by our trading partners, many of whom we are now discovering to be our enemies.
China has recently completed an alternative international settlement system which will allow nations to settle international payments outside of the US dollar and it is now operational. We are living in the final days of the ‘petro-dollar’ era. When the petro-dollar goes, the US will lose its seeming unlimited funding source for its trade deficit, through which we finance our fiscal deficit and our military budget. Without the ‘petro-dollar’ we won’t be able export our debt at near zero interest rates. America will then be confronted with a choice: either surrender its super power status and give up its subsidized standard of living, or go to war to defend it.
THE WORLD IS AT THE TIPPING POINT
The world is at a tipping point by virtually every measure. We are now witnessing a global ecosystem collapse as the oceans, the birds, and the fish die. The so-called economic recovery was a cruel joke, papered over by trillion dollar deficits which created our now overextended financial bubbles. The political, moral and social bankruptcy of our country is absolute and it is not just America, but worldwide. Ours has become an empire of lies, and where ‘truth-tellers’ are guilty of treason.
The pseudo-science of climate change is one such example; in the light of truth, it is exposed as a total fraud. Global climate change has nothing to do with carbon emissions; correlation doesn’t prove causality. The scientific fact is that the whole solar system is being impacted by cosmic and gamma radiation from a neutron star 1,300 light years away in the vicinity of the Orion constellation. This radiation is heating the core of every planet and is also impacting our sun, which is now increasingly more unstable. This radiation is also heating the core of our planet, thereby weakening the earth’s magnetic field which allows greater amounts of solar radiation into our ecosystem, producing a positive feedback loop. The 20 trillion tons of methane gas frozen in the Arctic Circle have begun to melt and the outcome will be a cataclysm.  These changes are getting worse by the day and the governments of the world know all of this.
When you examine the history of the war propaganda inside Russia over the last four years, their development of new 5th generation weapons, alongside of their military preparations and current mobilizations, compared with the terrible lack of readiness on the part of US forces, the window of vulnerability is at or near its maximum. During the time of the ABM Treaty, Russia developed dual purpose anti-aircraft missiles which also serve as anti-ballistic missiles (ABM) and Russia has close to 12,000 such missiles. In the US, we have basically none, unless you count 100 or so outdated Nike interceptors from the 1960’s.
President Trump’s efforts to refurbish our aging nuclear arsenal and to strengthen our military forces emasculated by eight years of Obama’s social engineering and intentional disarmament, only serves to compel our enemies to attack us before their window of opportunity closes. Recent news confirms this grim reality; the next world war is nigh upon us, and will likely begin in Korea this spring.
VICTOR SUVOROV – THE FINAL PHASE OF THE OVERTURE
A number of recent news incidents dismissed as accidents look very much like the final phase of Russia’s pre-war preparations, described as the ‘overture’ by Soviet defector, Victor Suvorov, in his book, Spetsnaz: The Inside Story of Russian Special Forces. The increasing number of ‘accidents’ alongside our growing scandal filled news fit Suvorov’s description of the overture perfectly while the fictitious events he described now seem eerily prophetic. Even yesterday a train filled with Republican congressmen just happened to be involved in an accident, and had it derailed, the accident could have killed or injured scores of them. For those who are unaware of the strategy embodied within the overture, Suvorov explains:
“The last months of peace, as in other wars, have an almost palpable air of crisis about them. Incidents, accidents, small disasters add to the tension. Two trains collide on a railway bridge … a supertanker bursts into flames. In the United States an epidemic of some unidentified disease breaks out and spreads rapidly; at the same time terrible fires begin raging in the west.
“All these operations – because of course none of these events is an accident – and others like them are known officially in the GRU as the ‘preparatory period’, and unofficially as the ‘overture’. The overture is a series of large and small operations the purpose of which is, before actual military operations begin, to weaken the enemy’s morale, create an atmosphere of general suspicion, fear and uncertainty, and divert the attention of the enemy’s armies and police forces to a huge number of different targets, each of which may be the object of the next attack.
“The overture is carried by agents of the secret services of the Soviet satellite countries and by mercenaries recruited by intermediaries. The principal method employed at this stage is ‘grey terror’, that is, a kind of terror which is not conducted in the name of the Soviet Union. The Soviet secret services do not at this stage leave their visiting cards, or leave other people’s cards. The terror is carried out in the name of already existing extremist groups not connected in any way with the Soviet Union, or in the name of fictitious organizations.
“The GRU reckons that in this period its operations should be regarded as natural disasters, actions by forces beyond human control, mistakes committed by people, or as terrorist acts by organizations not connected with the Soviet Union. The terrorist acts carried out in the course of the ‘overture’ require very few people, very few weapons and little equipment. In some cases all that may be needed is one man who has as a weapon nothing more than a screwdriver, a box of matches or a glass ampoule. Some of the operations can have catastrophic consequences. For example, an epidemic of an infectious disease at seven of the most important naval bases in the West could have the effect of halving the combined naval might of the Soviet Union’s enemies. The ‘overture’ could last from several weeks to several months, gradually gathering force and embracing fresh regions.” 
What we have been witnessing in the news over the last year is a perfect example of the overture. The Russia collusion scandal, the sexual harassment scandals, the spontaneous fires erupting overnight in California, pipeline explosions, numerous train derailments, power outages, and now a super flu epidemic, these are the exact illustrations Suvorov used to describe what the overture would look like in the eyes of the average American.
AMERICA – THE DAUGHTER OF BABYLON
Lastly, as a final proof that the war is later this year, consider the biblical connection of the US to the scriptural entity known as ‘Mystery Babylon’. Ancient Babylon ruled the nations as a superpower for exactly 70 years. Jeremiah declared the judgment of God upon ancient Babylon after 70 years of rule. This prophecy is also a witness against us. History repeats; this we all know. History is His Story, and so too, the prophecies of the Bible repeat as well.
Jeremiah prophesied that Israel would be sent into slavery under the rule of Babylon for 70 years and during that time, all of the nations would ‘serve’ Babylon. At the end of its 70 year rule, Babylon would then be judged. “And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.” 
Notice the Lord declares he will judge “the king of Babylon and that nation” and then he declares a further judgment upon “the land of Chaldeans” and in their case, the land will be made into a “perpetual desolation”. Following the desolation of the land of the Chaldeans, the prophecies of Jeremiah 25 continue, only now they transition into events which will take place at the end of the age.
So who are the Chaldeans? And why does the prophecy of Jeremiah 25 shift from the judgment of ancient Babylon to the judgment at the end of the age at the precise point of mentioning the judgment which will come upon the land of the Chaldeans?
Is the land of the Chaldeans just another name for ancient Babylon? Is the Lord merely repeating himself? Did Ancient Babylon’s land become a perpetual desolation when it was judged? The answer to all of these questions is no; the Chaldeans were a separate country, which became part of Babylon at the time of their end. When ancient Babylon was judged, the land of Babylon did not become a perpetual desolation and neither did all of the people leave as prophesied of the daughter of Babylon in Jeremiah chapters 50 & 51.
The name Chaldea derives from the name of the ruling elite of this nation who practiced the ‘mystery’ religion of the secret societies of the ancient world. Thus the reference to the ‘land of the Chaldeans’ is a prophetic reference which connects ancient Babylon, a historic and geographic identity, to a descendent empire which would rule the earth in the last days, and which is described as ‘Mystery Babylon’ or the ‘daughter of Babylon’ in the prophetic writings.
End time Babylon would also be ruled by social elite with deep ties to the ‘mystery religion’ of the Chaldeans and which would rule end time Babylon through dark powers exercised by a shadow government. Think of Skull & Bones, the Bilderberg Group, CFR, and the other globalist organizations that dominate the public life of our nation.
End time Babylon is described as an ‘eagle’ in Daniel’s vision and as the ‘hindermost’ nation in the prophecies of Jeremiah in which he declares the cities of Babylon would one day burn like Sodom and Gomorrah.
The Hebrew word for ‘hindermost’ used in this text occurs twice in scripture in which it is translated as the “last” or the “west”. The prophetic writings reveal the nation described as ‘Mystery Babylon’ would be the world’s last super-power. It would come upon the world’s stage at the end of the age, and it would rise in west, and be pictured as an eagle.
THE AMERICAN CENTURY
The American Century began in 1948 with the creation of the GAAT, NATO, the World Health Organization, the Organization of American States, and the Marshall Plan. The Cold War began later that year, compelling the free world to accept America’s global leadership. Europe and Japan were severely damaged by the destruction of the 2nd World War and their populations were impoverished. So the nations all began to ‘serve’ America, building export industries to harvest their raw materials or produce goods to be sold in America.
In the early years, America paid for this trade in gold, but in 1971, with its gold reserves nearly depleted, Nixon and Kissinger created the petro-dollar in a secret agreement with the Saudi regime. In paying for its trade deficit, America would now export only debt, while OPEC would accept only US dollars in payment for oil. These dollars would be recycled in the US Treasury market, financing the US budget deficit, or they would be used to purchase military weapons from America’s arms industry. In exchange, the United States military would ensure the safety of our allies, and especially the Saudi regime.
By accepting petro-dollars, America’s trading partners were knowingly subsidizing the US military budget and the cost could be measured by the level of US dollar currency debasement. In the early years, the cost of this subsidy was low; while the perceived value of America’s military protection was quite high.
Over its 45 year history, the petro-dollar has allowed the United States to export over $10 trillion in debt, an external debt balance of historic proportions, and also a debt which can never be repaid. The cost of financing America’s structural deficits is no longer perceived as low while the value of America’s military protection is now quite uncertain. We are one military defeat away from the loss of the petro-dollar. The first US carrier to be hit by a hyper-sonic missile will mark the end of this era. A global financial collapse will follow almost immediately, leading to the fall of America Babylon later this year.
The 1st Great War ended on November 11th, 1918, on the 11th day of the 11th month. The unseen rulers of our fallen world use mystic symbolism and numerology to hide the occult signature of their acts in plain view. World War III will likely begin with a similar signature before the 100th year anniversary of the 1st Great War, in the year 2018. Following the war, which is pictured as the Red Horse in the book of Revelation, the Black Horse of famine, plague and death will then devastate the earth.
The Black Plague was called the ‘Black Death’ as it brought misery, death and economic ruin to Europe in the middle of the 14th century. The plague ravaged Europe for seven years, killing an estimated 30% to 60% of the population (30 to 100 million people). It was finally eradicated in the year 1353.
Following the war this fall, the calendar will turn to the year 2019, the 666th year since the end of the Black Plague. The plague has coincidentally re-emerged in the south of Africa in the last year, right on time for its 666 year anniversary, and so the Black Horse will begin to ride again as the world enters the beginning of the time of Jacob’s trouble, also a 7 year period., [i]
THE OCCULT SIGNATURE OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
The future, for the most part, is unknowable, as mortal men are rarely permitted to peer through its veil. Most people would also prefer not to see into a future as terrible as ours; they would find it too troubling to their souls. Most Americans do not wish to understand how deeply the darkness has infiltrated our country and our institutions of power. They prefer to neither hear nor understand anything about the terrible catastrophe that awaits our nation.
The dark forces which now control the shadow government in America are as hideous and evil as they are real; they have led us to the edge of an abyss in which our military was intentionally weakened and our nation left virtually defenseless. The window of vulnerability that exists today was left wide open by their design.
These dark forces have ruled over the secret societies of the world from the beginning of time. They are the unseen rulers of this ruined age, and they are under the direct control of Satan. They have dominated the government of our nation for the better part of the last hundred years through their secret societies which are the prophetic link of the United States to ‘Mystery’ Babylon, for the ruling powers in America are all participants in the same ‘mystery religion’ practiced in ancient Chaldea.
The book of Revelation reveals the shadow government as ten kings who will rule with Beast; they hate the woman ‘America Babylon’ and so they made our country desolate, and now they plan to burn America with fire. 
The 2008 financial crisis, the result of a housing crisis which they engineered, was used to loot our nation. And now they plan to use the world war to literally burn America with fire. There should be no doubt of which nation the prophecy speaks: “And the woman, (Mystery Babylon) which thou sawest is that great city (nation state) which reigns over the kings of the earth (at the time of the end). 
The occult signature left behind by these satanic forces can be found in all of the major events of our history; and although this truth can be painful to observe, those who have been called as true watchmen, dare not look away.
“Masonic betrayal of the ‘common man’ involves archetypes of fertility and death symbolism seemingly motivated to bring about syncretism in opposing principles in order to ‘green’ Israel, rebuild the Temple of Solomon and establish a One World government. It is certain that onomatology (and numerology) or the secret science of names (and numbers) forms a very integral part of the mystery school of the higher Masonry…. – Encyclopedia of Freemasonry” 
Onomatology is the science or study of the origin, forms and mystical meaning of names. Numerology is the science of occult symbolism based upon the mystical meaning of numbers. These are both used as symbols to reveal the presence of the dark arts of sorcery and mystic alchemy which are hidden in plain sight in many of the world’s most important events. These symbols are both symbolic clues and numerological keys which the unseen rulers of this fallen world use to unlock pathways to another realm in order to ensure the success of an endeavor. They are employed frequently by the secret societies whenever they attempt to release the power ‘as above’ in their rituals ‘so below’.
When you begin to understand these symbols, you will find them as finger prints at the scene of many crimes, so they ought not to be ignored. “When the ancients saw a scapegoat, they could at least recognize him for what he was: a human sacrifice. When modern man sees one, he does not, or refuses to, recognize him for what he IS; instead he looks for ‘scientific’ explanations-to explain away the obvious.”
America has been chosen as a scapegoat, a blood sacrifice of 300 million souls who will be slain to usher in the rising of the New World Order, and from that destiny she cannot escape. Once this truth is understood, the obvious will be perceived, and truth will never be able to hide in plain sight again. The death of America in World War III was been planned long ago as the opening ceremony for the dawn of a New Age.
THE SECRET ORDER OF THE ILLUMINATI
The secret societies of America were all created by and are governed by a group that calls itself ‘The Order of the Illuminati’. The Order has remained unseen for centuries, only recently beginning to allow press about itself. The Economist magazine published one of the few articles ever written about the Order entitled “The Good Network Guide” in December 1992. It discussed the various secret societies of the world, ranking them in terms of power, secrecy and exclusivity. The Order of the Illuminati was given the highest ranking in all categories.
“Beyond all these networks lies the mother of all networks, the Order of the Illuminati, known to some as the True Rulers of the World Though this secret body has hovered unseen over all history, its most public flowering was in the Enlightenment. Adam Wieshaupt, a former Jesuit revealed its purpose and system of mutual surveillance to the world on May 1st, 1776. Since then the order has taken a keen interest in another new born of that year. It is significant that many American presidents have been Illuminati; some have been killed by the Illuminati; and the Illuminati symbol of the eye in the pyramid still graces the dollar bill. The conspiracy is immense and terrifying. It is the network of those who run networks. Given its power, you should assume that anyone writing about the order must be lying or part of a conspiracy to confound you. In wondering about the Illuminati, merely remember this. You have never arrived.”
This Order is the league made with the anti-Christ. These are the Luciferians, who serve the prince of the air of the present age. The seal of the Great Pyramid on the dollar bill is their symbol, which reads “Annui Coeptis” and “Novus Ordo Seclorum”. The translation from Latin means “Announcing the Birth of the New World Order”. This is the New World Order of the Beast, and the government of the US is the model, a union of independent states under a supreme central government. The model has now been extended to the world with the formation of the United Nations, and after the next world war, engineered by the Order; the UN will be brought to full global power. And at that time, those who know their God will begin to do great exploits.
“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” 
In Jeremiah’s prophecy against the daughter of Babylon, the Lord asks a simple question: “Who will appoint me the time?”
I ask a similar question of you, dear reader: “Who will believe my report?” 
May the Lord have mercy on us all,
