America and Afghanistan
In Bible Prophecy
Bad things are taking place in the United States! What are we to make of the Afghanistan debacle and the frenzied takeover by the Talban that unfolded late summer?
For sure it is further evidence on the world stage that America’s leadership and role is greatly diminished. We have an administration in Washington that so mishandled this operation, that the only conclusion is that the catastrophe was deliberate. The message to Israel’s enemies is clear, “we’re leaving… you can take over.”
The details were likely orchestrated by the “useful idiots” in the Biden administration, made up of the haters of America and Israel. Good people were left behind, including an unknown number of Americans as well as the underground church while tens of thousands of Afghanis were allowed to waltz into America, including Muslim men with child brides.
What a contrast. In 2018, Trump harshly sanctioned Turkey until Erdogan released Pastor Andrew Brunson but in 2021 Biden betrayed the Christians in Afghanistan by sentencing them to suffer under the Taliban. It doesn’t get any stranger or any more evil. This is like watching a horror movie play out.
We hear much about the Magog/Armageddon War of Ezekiel 38-39. The 7 “stans” of Central Asia are part of the geography of ancient Magog: Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Pakistan. The average percentage of the Muslim population throughout the 7 “stan” nations is about 95% per country. These are some of the Muslim countries who will be among the invading armies pouring into Israel in the final war led by Turkey along with Iran, Libya, and Sudan.
Ezekiel 39:9 says Israel will burn the weapons of this war for seven years. The Biden administration chose to leave $85 billion in weaponry behind in Afghanistan. Surely some of this weaponry will soon be burning in the Valley of Megiddo where the pools of blood are so high they sometimes reach up to the horses bridal (Rev. 14:20).
While the Pentagon claims some of this equipment was dismantled, it can easily be re-built by the Russians or the Chinese. Afghanistan borders China so it’s no surprise the Chinese have embraced the Taliban with bribes for their rare mineral resources.
Iran has already set up a trading post with the Taliban in the city of Herat, Afghanistan, near Iran’s border. In Herat, the Iranians are busy trading Iranian gas and oil with the Taliban for weapons. Meanwhile, as our satellite surveillance watches the trucks coming and going, despite the illegal exchanges and despite the UN and USA sanctions, our feckless government says nothing.
In other words, Israel’s enemies have been replenished with some of the most sophisticated military equipment found on the planet thanks to hard-working U.S. taxpayers. It’s enough to make your blood boil!
Sunni and Shite, Working Together
The Taliban are close allies with Pakistan who have 100 nuclear warheads which could be significant to the revived Ottoman Caliphate. Turkey has partnered with Pakistan to build Pakistan a new fleet of “Corvette” swift boats to expand Pakistan’s Navy for the coming Caliphate wars during the Tribulation.
I think we’ll soon find sophisticated U.S. weapons in all the Red Nations below. These are likely 7 of the 10 nations I believe that will join together to form the final empire.
Look closely and you’ll notice the sea of red covers geography from the Mediterranean to the border of India. It precisely overlays 3 ancient empires depicted in Daniel 7:2-6 and Revelation 13:2 that forms the location prophesied for the 8th empire of Antichrist.
America’s Sudden Decline
The passage in Ezekiel says no nation comes to Israel’s aid in the final invasion of Israel. Where is America during Israel’s hour of need? This is striking evidence that the world’s only superpower has fallen and turned away from Israel. She’s too sick to lift a hand.
The prophetic silence concerning America seems to show that power will shift away from the United States to such an extent she has no role in prophecy whatsoever. That means we’re heading into a future season in our country that won’t look anything like our past. It could come suddenly by a financial collapse or any number of calamities or the final shock to America’s system could even be caused by the Rapture.
Since we’re living in the shadow of the Tribulation there are numerous reasons to suspect why God would allow the decline of America so rapidly. Here are 3.
Judgment for Sin – God hasn’t turned away from America, we have turned away from God. Beginning 50 years ago, we began outlawing God’s Word and His Ways which has brought God’s curse on our nation (Isaiah 10:1-4) and we are now reaping what we’ve sown.
Rise of the Beast – The superpower status of America, on the international level, will need to be weakened to allow for the rise of the Beast. America still has military bases throughout the Middle East with several sitting on nations that likely will be part of the coming Beast empire including Turkey, Iraq, Qatar and until recently, Afghanistan. Up until now theses bases represented the power and might of the Christian nation of the USA that has prevented bad actors from rising against Israel. The nuclear and missile threat emanating from our bases will need to be depleted to clear the path for the Beast… just as what happened in Afghanistan! These countries are thrilled to see the United States, the “Great Satan” leaving the Middle East.
Remove Support for Israel – God doesn’t want the U.S. rescuing Israel or interrupting His promised redemptive plans for Israel during the 7-year Tribulation (Dan. 12:7).
When the leadership of Israel rejected and crucified
Jesus their Messiah, God postponed completing Israel’s calendar (Dan. 9:24-27) by precisely 7 years. After the Rapture, God will begin fulfilling those final 7 years that lead to the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant and the salvation of Israel’s remnant.
Aside from judging America for its iniquity and rebellion, the Lord’s judgment is also falling because we’ve turned away from Israel. God is taking away His supernatural protection and blessing so that at the end of the Tribulation the U.S. is but a shell of her former self on the world stage and either unable or uninterested in coming to Israel’s aid.
This is what we’re watching in 2021. The major problems flooding into our country are not just random or accidental. God has sovereignly directed them as His way of judging our country. It’s a pattern God used to judge the ungodly acts of Israel’s Northern Kingdom, “In those days… God was troubling them with every kind of distress” (2 Chron. 15:5-6). Paul says it this way, “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people” (Rom. 1:18).
America might not be around to help Israel —but God sure is! He devastates her enemies and because of the miraculous nature of the war’s outcome, Israel realizes God was on her side. For the remnant that remains, this begins the spiritual awakening of God’s chosen people.
So how big is your God? If God doesn’t need America to fulfill His promises on the world stage, think of what God can do through a yielded life in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let Him use you!
To evidence the reprobate minds and upside-down thinking that prevails in Washington these days, the Administration is talking about further negotiating with the Taliban. Oh boy! That means U.S. aid! These are heavy handed thugs with a Shariah mindset, motivated by brutality that makes them look more like ISIS than allies. Are we really going to support a regime that rapes women and throw gays off of tall buildings blindfolded? Probably.
Beginning to Unravel
America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture.
But don’t be discouraged or disillusioned. In fact, there’s good reason to rejoice in that we are the generation God has chosen to stand in this hour! The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God’s kingdom!
Pray for Those Left Behind in Afghanistan
With the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, more of the end-time stage is being set as the 10-king nations and the Ottoman Caliphate begin to fall into place!
Of particular concern right now in Afghanistan are the many Christians who are in hiding or on the run. The underground Church needs your prayers!
The crisis in Afghanistan has taught us that no number of U.S. resources, training or occupation can change a Muslim nation under Shariah Law. The only way to make a difference is through individual disciple-making.
As death and mayhem continue, one thing is clear: the need for Jesus in the Middle East has never been greater. Now is the time to respond to the cry of our persecuted brothers and sisters in what the Lord is doing to grow His Kingdom.
One underground leader said, “Pray that God puts angels around our home! The Taliban have begun to mark houses with a C for Christian. One of us is always awake during the night, always walking around and praying, so if the Taliban should come and knock on our door, we should alert everyone.”
The Mideast Beast nations are lining up, Israel is being surrounded, America is falling, and the economy is weakening. However, as the Apostle Paul says to the troubled Thessalonians, we can take rest in the fact that Jesus is coming!
And give relief (rest) to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you
(2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
Even so come Lord Jesus!
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.
While the left demands the unvaccinated be placed in economic ghettos, they are allowing COVID infected illegal immigrants to cross the border spreading deadly COVID germs in dozens of towns and cities across America. This is America in 2021.
‘No Vax, No Service’
On CNN yesterday, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo looked into the camera and said that unvaccinated people have no right to remain unvaccinated, and that if they refuse to submit to them they need to be shut out of society.
That means no restaurants, no access to the grocery store for food for their family, no access to anything. 17 months into the bazaar overreach of our government and things are only heating up.
The end-time insanity is not limited to the false news purveyors at CNN, it is coming from every quarter of this administration, with the rhetoric growing more intense by the day.
Establishments that have required vaccines often face pushback, from crowds of protesters and from those opposed to such restrictions.
A case in point: Argosy, an Atlanta gastropub, has seen strongly negative reaction on social media to its “No Vax, No Service” policy, including a Twitter TWTR, 2.77% post from Georgia U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican.
“This is called segregation,” Greene wrote. “Will you be testing everyone at the door for the flu, strep throat, stomach bugs, colds, meningitis, aids, venereal diseases, Hep A, Hep C, staff infections, athletes foot, pink eye, croup, bronchitis, ringworm, scabies, or any other contagions?”
Restaurants now telling unvaccinated customers, ‘No vax, no service’ as delta variant spreads
FROM MARKET WATCH: As COVID-19 cases surge throughout the U.S., a growing number of dining and drinking establishments are turning unvaccinated customers away, saying their businesses can’t risk possibly exposing patrons and staff to the virus.
BUT THESE “NO VAX, NO SERVICE” DECISIONS HAVE SPARKED CONTROVERSY, WITH ANTI-VACCINATION GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS SAYING THEY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS. SOME STATES, SUCH AS FLORIDA AND TEXAS, HAVE ALSO ENACTED LAWS THAT ESSENTIALLY PREVENT PRIVATE BUSINESSES FROM IMPOSING THESE BANS ON THE UNVACCINATED.
The idea of forced vaccination is gaining momentum and despite the extremely high COVID survival rate of 99.5%, everyone may soon have to make up their mind regarding the vaccination.
This is not something to take lightly but should be saturated in prayer for you and your family.
The best chapter in the New Testament concerning matters of personal conscience is Romans 14 where the Apostle Paul counsels all believers to,
“let everyone be fully persuaded in his own mind.”
