The darkness has descended over America. In the ninth plague, Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven, and there was a thick darkness over the land of Egypt. The darkness was so total that the Egyptians had to feel their way around.
In similar fashion but in the spiritual sense, what we’ve seen so far this year are evil leaders blindly trying to feel their way forward. And it’s not pretty to watch. Spiritual blindness has enveloped our beloved nation like a thick oppressive cloud.
After centuries of learning the ways of God is this country, the ignorance on display concerning God, His Word, His Principles, His Gospel, His Love, and His Truth is stunning. It’s grievous. Surely heaven must weep for those people that God loves and for whom Jesus died who now display such blindness and deception.
If you are also standing on the truth of God’s Word, I suspect you are caught up in a similar battle–with family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and maybe even other church members. Jesus gives us the reason for the battle when He says,
“Everyone who does evil hates the light and will not come to the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”
Take The Jab,
Or Lose Your Job!
September 13, 2021
Joe Biden just bypassed Congress and bypassed the Constitution to mandate vaccines for 2/3 of America’s workforce.
It may not be the mark-of-the beast but it’s helping to set the stage and is a major overreach taking advantage of innocent citizens.
Biden is out of control and behaving like a dictator.
Now he has issued a tyrannical decree that will affect the lives of tens of millions of Americans.
The new mandates require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforces are fully vaccinated or show a negative test at least once a week.
Companies that fail to comply face fines of $14,000 per violation, Mr. Biden said.
Americans like you and I need to fight back now, or our freedoms will evaporate completely.
Many of our friends who attend Focus On The End Times classes and gather at churches across the upstate are affected by the new order. They are concerned about losing their job. All are patriotic Americans who need our prayers, encouragement and support.
FOTET Prayer List
If you are threatened by the new mandates, as so many of our brothers and sisters in America, we would like to add your name to a prayer list at our upcoming class next Tuesday. We will make the list available on our website.
Liberty Counsel – Religious Exemption
In many cases, you may be able to sign a religious exemption excluding you from the mandates. For more information about this, I would encourage you to go to Liberty Counsel and watch the VACCINE EXEMPTION GUIDE VIDEO. HERE
There is a lot of helpful information on this sight including how to ask your employer and a sample letter requesting an exemption.
The latest mandate announcement makes it more imperative that we learn how to discern the signs of the times as Jesus taught (Matthew 16:1-3).
From Prison To Power
Rulers of Taliban were released from Guantanamo Bay by Obama/Biden in Bergdahl Prisoner Swap
The Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama/Biden administration in 2014 in exchange for admitted US Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl helped plan the Taliban’s return to power and now have high level positions in the Taliban Islamist government in Afghanistan. The ‘Gitmo Five’ were labelled “hardest of the hardcore” by US intelligence officials who urged Obama and Biden to reconsider their decision.
Taliban leaders go from jail, to negotiating table, to Kabul to ruling Afghanistan
Thousands remain left behind
in Afghanistan as U.S. forces withdraw from Kabul following President Biden’s political strategy of simply getting out of the country, irrespective of the consequences.
When Taliban fighters seized Afghanistan’s presidential palace, news agencies carried photos of the scene, and one of the people in those photos was a prisoner named Khairullah Khairkhwa who was held at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2014.
Obama released him from Guantanamo in the Bergdahl Prisoner Swap. Now he’s part of the Taliban government! Obama freed Bergdahl the traitor for radical Islamists claiming that the radicals being released in 2014 had been fully “vetted” and were reformed! Sure thing! They reformed all right… they reformed Afghanistan!
Worse yet, they are now positioned with enough U.S. military equipment to reform the balance of the Middle East. In prophetic terms, that will have the effect of reforming the region into the image of Satan just as prophesied in Revelation 12 and as Paul warned in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9.
In light of the disastrous, radical turn for Afghanistan, what is our State Department concerned with? The only request from the State Department is for the new Taliban government to be inclusive! You’re kidding right? It doesn’t have gays and women in key leadership positions like good old Uncle Sam?
CNN seems surprised to discover “No women or members from Afghanistan’s ousted leadership were selected for acting cabinet positions or named to advisory roles, in spite of the Taliban’s promises of an inclusive government and more moderate form of Islamic rule.”
All of the “leaders” announced by the Taliban on Tuesday are established Taliban terror-squad captains that have been rewarded with senior positions in the Taliban government. This includes the new interior minister Sirrajuddin Haqqani who is a wanted terrorist and heads the Haqqani network, which has been behind some of the deadliest attacks including a 2017 truck bombing that killed more than 150. A Coming Caliphate The appointed new Prime Minister of the Taliban government is Hassan Akhund, who was in power the last time the Taliban controlled Afghanistan, in 1996 to 2001. Under his leadership, the Taliban first declared themselves an Islamic Caliphate.
It will be interesting to see what Caliphate strategy the Taliban employs this time around. Will they try to go it alone again or have they learned from the ill-fated attempt of ISIS to wait for an announcement from Turkey.
Followers of the dominant Sunni version of Islam, the Taliban has a long history of practicing the “Holy War” of Jihad similar to ISIS. What’s in a name! It turns out a lot. They’ve declared their name as… The Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan.
Committed to Islam
The Taliban’s campaign to portray themselves as normal citizens of a new government is a farce and demonstrates, once again, that negotiating or even attempting to influence Islam is a western delusion.
Committed Islamists like the Taliban play the west for all they can while rigidly following Shariah Law. Shariah means denying religious freedom and freedom of the press, sidelining woman as second-class citizens, beheading infidels and approving the Islamic practice of sex-trafficking. And on and on…
Taliban Slated to Celebrate Inauguration of New Government on 911
Obama and Biden may be pleased by the Taliban’s radical appointments—days before the 20th anniversary of the 911 terror attack—but the whole mess is a slap in the face to the U.S. and its Western allies and all the men and women who were killed on 911 and in Afghanistan fighting for freedom the last 20 years!
So now you have Afghanistan, that Biden agreed to desert, stocked with billions of dollars in American weapons, left there on purpose by Biden, and Taliban soldiers who were released by Obama and Biden running Afghanistan.
Could it come more full-circle than that?
Actually, yes, care to take a guess when this new Taliban terror government funded and created by Obama and Biden is going to be inaugurated?
Prophetic Events Trending Now
It’s happening fast! Too fast to track!
As God’s shaking and quaking continues, here are the dramatic events now unfolding that we’ll be discussing in our upcoming class.
I never thought I’d see the destabilization of America, the transformation of the Middle East and coinciding prophecy signs coming so fast!
Powerful, trendsetting movements are unfolding that are interconnected to one other.
7 Trends To Watch
1. The Rapid Decline of America is signaling the soon return of Jesus and warning we are now living under the shadow of the 7-year Tribulation.
2. The U.S. is dramatically turning away from Israel and dragging America into the path of God’s wrath!
State Dept Expands Iran Team Days After Israel Asked Biden to Abandon Nuke Talks.
The Biden administration is expanding the team dedicated to renegotiating the Iran deal, just days after Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett urged the United States to back out of negotiations.
3. Lies. Lies… and more Lies!
The Biden administration spent months assuring Congress that the U.S.-trained Afghan forces would be able to forestall a Taliban takeover when American troops left the country on a pre-determined deadline.
That assessment was proven wrong days after the withdrawal, when the Taliban overran the Afghan National Army and seized control of Kabul, forcing a chaotic evacuation of U.S. personnel and allies.
Billion-Dollar Memory Hole: The Biden Administration Scrubbing Federal Websites of Lists of Weapons It Left Behind while the Taliban Parades Captured US Military Equipment
President Joe Biden waived a mandate in June that would have forced the Pentagon to provide a detailed report to Congress about the risks of leaving Afghanistan.
Under the federal statute, the administration was barred from reducing troops in Afghanistan below 2,000 without first briefing Congress about the expected impact on U.S. counterterrorism operations and the risk to American personnel.
More Lies. Biden waived the mandate in June, arguing that providing this information to Congress could undermine “the national security interests of the United States.”
4. Just after the fall of Kabul, the Taliban started turning up in U.S. uniforms, carrying U.S. rifles, and riding in U.S. vehicles. They started showing off a Black Hawk helicopter they’d captured.
It soon became clear that when the Taliban overran the Afghan military, it also snapped up all of that military’s gear. It also grabbed all of the gear the U.S. military left behind at Bagram Air Base and other posts as it hastily retreated.
Joe Biden insists he and his high command, including generals who wear medal clusters so enormous you could serve a pizza on them, planned for all this.
But did they?
Did they plan all along to arm the Taliban?
It sure appears so! That would be my conclusion!
One question now is: Did they plan for the ongoing cover-up?
Forbesreports that the State Department is telling other federal agencies to scrub their websites of lists of weapons the U.S. provided the Afghan military over the years.
China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and the terrorist organizations of Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Harem, Islamic Jihad, al-Qaeda and all the rest, now want to cozy up to the Taliban to purchase weapons. Thanks to the Pentagon!
And one day, not too far in the future, some of these weapons will be lying on the blood soaked valley floor of Megiddo after the Battle of Armageddon.
5. Washington has decided to cast its lot with the Palestinian terrorists and the mullah’s of Iran showing them favor despite knowing their murderous hatred and evil plans to exterminate Israel!
US transfers 3 huge logistic bases from Qatar to Jordan in gesture to appease Iran!
One of the three huge logistics bases which the US military recently dismantled in Qatar and relocated to Jordan was the largest in the world. In the last few days, the US has shut down Sayliyah Main Army Camp an ammunition supply point.
Their 27 warehouses storing tanks, armored personnel carriers and other equipment were stored in this forward staging post in Qatar for US supplies across the Middle East and as a reserve stock in case hostilities erupted with Iran.
Supplies from the three bases, as well as a support mission based there, are now part of the US Central Command Area Support Group-Jordan.
American sources say that this massive relocation is aimed at reducing friction with Iran and clearing the path to revived nuclear negotiations.
6. The U.S. is unilaterally withdrawing from the Middle East including Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria and by doing so is signaling weakness toward both American and Israeli enemies!
America has stood tall in these last days, since the birth of Israel in 1948, as the major deterrent for attempts to annihilate Israel. With the Americans out of the way, invading forces have a clear path to Israel.
In the eyes of Islamists, the Taliban’s seizure of Afghanistan mirrors the collapse of the world’s leading superpower to the forces of the Koran’s “true believers”—the jihadis. In this way, the pullout has emboldened extremists across Asia, the Middle East and beyond.
It’s hard to imagine anything more potent for fulfilling Satan’s plans to resurrect the Ottoman Caliphate than the surrender and disappearance of America from the Middle East!
7. As if on cue… From Turkey to Pakistan, the Mideast Beast is rising before our eyes!
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
The hour is late! God’s judgment has come upon America and the regime running our country is trying to intentionally destroy America.
We need to be before the Lord.
Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds.
A pregnant woman from California who is stranded in Afghanistan, thanks to the inept US Foreign Policy, said the Taliban is hunting Americans now that the US military has withdrawn from the country.
The woman, identified by her first name, Nasria, to protect her from reprisals, is among the 200 Americans still trapped in Afghanistan. “There’s been days, you know, where I think to myself, ‘Am I going to make it home? Am I going to end up living here? Am I going to end up dying here?’” Nasria told Voice of America in an interview recorded on Friday. She said after the US completed its military withdrawal on Aug. 31, the Taliban began “hunting Americans.”
The Biden regime left hundreds of American citizens stranded in Kabul, Afghanistan, as a result of one of the most disastrous military evacuations in U.S. history. Now that America has abandoned American citizens to the Islamic State of Afghanistan the Taliban terrorists are now going house to house and hunting them.
I think we know what will happen when they get their hands on American citizens!
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”
Afghanistan ended in complete failure but it didn’t have to happen like that. It ended like that because the demonic, shadow government now in charge in Washington DC is doing its level best to pull America down to the ground. If our own government will do this to fellow citizens, it would be wise not to count on them to have your best interests in view.
Nasria, 25, said she traveled to Afghanistan in June to visit family and marry her Afghan national husband but couldn’t get a flight out after the Taliban took over Kabul last month.
She described the chaotic scene in the streets around the Hamid Karzai International Airport as thousands of Afghans tried to flee and the perilous ordeal she and her husband went through trying to get a flight.
“It was so hard to just get on a flight,” Nasria said. “There was a couple days where we had to sleep on streets. People were literally stepping over people. That’s how bad it was.”
She said she eventually contacted the State Department and was told to go to a specific area where they would be met and escorted to an evacuation flight. At one point, they were moments away from entering the airport but the Taliban intervened.
“Our troops were literally at the gate just waiting for us to continue walking and they had blocked us,” Nasria said, adding that the extremist fighters refused to let her proceed despite showing them her passport.
“There was a time I went past them and started walking as fast as I can, and they started shooting right by my leg and told me to come back. I was only 15 steps away from the airport, and I was told people are going to come out of the airport to get me. So what hope am I supposed to have now?” she said.
Her husband pleaded with the Taliban to allow her to leave the country alone, but she refused to leave without him. “My child is going to need a father and I’m going to need a husband by my side,” Nasria said.
