This is a guest post by Scott G and entry for our non-fiction writing contest.
I’ve been doing a great deal of study on end time prophecies for the past year. Most notably are Matthew chapter 24. Daniel, Ezekiel and, the most famous, the Book of Revelations. I’m not going to get into any of those writings since they are so widely known. What I’ve been doing is researching the more obscure, but highly informative prophecies from a variety of sources.
In 1217 A.D., Rabbi Judah ben Samuel wrote the following:
“When the Ottomans conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which will signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
It should be noted that one jubilee is 50 years and the Ottoman Empire is the modern day Turks. The Empire took over Jerusalem in 1517 and was finally kicked out by the British in 1917. For the next 50 years, Jerusalem was arguably a no-man’s land until the Israelis beat the ever-living crap out of the Muslims and retook the city during the Six Day War in 1967.
This is where the prophecy ends, but we are now coming up to the end of the next jubilee. What happens in 2017? Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?
The next series of prophecies come from the Mormons. They don’t bode well for the future of our country. Many of the Mormon leaders made a series of prophecies regarding the fate of the United States, and the world in general. I will try and keep it brief, but there is a LOT of information that needs to be presented.
In 1844, Joseph Smith was purported to have made the following prophecy:
“There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two parties will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party. The United States will spend her strength and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of the United States”, then the people of the U. S. will unite and swear by the blood of their fore-fathers, that the land shall not be divided. Then the country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the [U. S. army will give up, and the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged and discouraged, and almost ready to give up—when the boys from the mountains will rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin. And they will say, 'Brethren, we are glad you have come; give us men, henceforth, who can talk with God'. Then you will have friends, but you will save the country when it’s [sic] liberty hangs by a hair, as it were.”
He also stated that “there is a land beyond the Rocky Mountains that will be invaded by the heathen Chinese unless great care and protection are given.” (Prophecy: Key to the Future, Crowther, 1962)
This prophecy is interesting for several reasons. The Republican Party was not formally organized until 1854. There is no question that, ideologically, the Democrats and Republicans are at war. Neither party truly represents their constituents. Because of this the American Independent Party was formed in 1967. Its web site stated that this was because “…the leaders of the two existing parties…have deserted the principles and traditions of our nation’s founding fathers.”
Ever since WWII, the U.S. has been in dozens of wars and police actions. Since the end of WWII, there have been more than 100 types of police actions, including notable ones like Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. If this isn’t spending our strength and means warring in foreign lands, I don’t know what is.
Anyone who has kept abreast of current events knows what China is doing. They are actively working to crash the dollar and becoming more and more militarized. Recently, a Chinese navy vessel tried to force a U.S. missile cruiser to stop in international waters and a general from the PLA threatened to nuke the U.S.
In 1960, Ezra Taft Benson, 13th president of the Mormon Church and Secretary of Agriculture under Eisenhower, also voiced warning against “socialistic communism” and specifically against the Chinese communists. He said that “there is little doubt that the leaders of Red China view war as inevitable and await only the propitious moment in which to strike.”
Would the Chinese invade the west coast if the opportunity presented itself? Obama is doing his level best to gut the military and bring in socialism. He’s doing everything he can to turn this country into a welfare society by following the Cloward-Piven strategy. Without question, our economy will collapse and riots will ensue when welfare recipients can’t use their EBT cards. What do you think the Chinese will think when they see this happening? What do you think the Russians will do?
Another thing to point out regarding Smith’s prophecy was the part about the army asking that men be sent to them, men “who can talk to God.” When you look at what the Dear Leader is doing to our military, you can see why this was stated. Obama is systematically purging the military of Christians – men who can talk to God. Any officer or NCO who doesn’t go along with Obama’s agenda is either being retired and/or persecuted under bogus, trumped up charges and driven from the military. Evangelical Christians have been specifically named by DHS and the military as potential terrorists.
Smith also stated in this and other prophecies that the U.S. Constitution would hang by a thread. With “progressives,” i.e., socialists/communists in power, there has been a systematic attack upon the Constitution. They are perverting, distorting and outright ignoring both the letter of the Constitution and its intent.
Obama is trying to have freedom of speech limited by the “Shield Law” introduced in the Senate. This law will specifically state who is considered a journalist and would exclude the alternative media. Freedom of religion is also under attack through Obamacare and forcing business owners to serve homosexuals against their conscience. One wedding cake baker is being threatened with a 12 month jail term if he refuses a court order to make a wedding cake for two homosexuals.
The 2nd Amendment is under attack in spite of the intent of the framers of the Constitution. This also is in spite of statistics that show that those states with the strictest gun laws have the highest violent crime. However, the 2nd Amendment, while it is for personal self-defence, was primarily intended to fight tyranny by the government. The Dear Leader knows this, but, again, in spite of him being a “constitutional scholar,” he ignores reality. The right against self-incrimination and right to unlawful search and seizure have been gutted by the Supremes.
I’d say that our Constitution is hanging by a thread.
From another early Mormon leader, Orson Pratt, is a prophecy regarding a second civil war that will be unlike other civil wars. This war would not be with two distinct factions fighting against each other. It would be a number of what appears to be mob actions, a series of civil wars.
“Do you wish me to describe it? I will do so. It will be a war of neighborhood against neighborhood, city against city, town against town, county against county, state against state, and they will go forth destroying and being destroyed and manufacturing will, in a great measure, cease, for a time, among the American nation. Why? Because in these terrible wars, they will not be privileged to manufacture, there will be too much bloodshed—too much mobocracy—too much going forth in bands and destroying and pillaging the land to suffer people to pursue any local vocation with any degree of safety. What will become of millions of the farmers upon that land? They will leave their farms and they will remain uncultivated, and they will flee before the ravaging armies from place to place; and thus will they go forth burning and pillaging the whole country.” (Journal of Discourses 20:151)
“The time will come when there will be no safety in carrying on the peaceable pursuits of farming or agriculture. But these will be neglected, and the people will think themselves well off if they can flee from city to city, from town to town and escape with their lives.” (Journal of Discourses 12:344)
What do you think will happen when the government is unable to continue its welfare subsidies? What happens when the stock market crashes? The Cloward-Piven strategy that is being followed by the Dear Leader is designed to crash the government as we know it. Unfortunately, I think it’s going to do more than just crash it as we know it with consequences these liberals can never foresee.
This was also foretold and reiterated by other Mormon leaders in the following statements:
“I have seen the end of this nation and it is terrible. I will tell you in the name of the Lord that a secret band will sap the life of this nation.” (Moses Thatcher, 1882)
“And do not think that these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertence or mistake; The whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our constitutional government; then to bring chaos, out of which the new Statism with its slavery is to arise, with a cruel, relentless, selfish, ambitious crew in the saddle, riding hard with whip and spur, a red-shrouded band of night riders for despotism.” (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., 1949)
“Concerning the United States, the Lord revealed to his prophets that its greatest threat would be a vast, worldwide ‘secret combination’ (conspiracy) which would not only threaten the United States but also seek to ‘overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations…’” (Ezra Taft Benson, 1961)
“The time will come when the banks in every nation will fail and only two places will be safe where people can deposit their gold and treasures…. A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government. And every species of wickedness will run rampant. Father will be against son, and son against father, mother against daughter, and daughter against mother. The most terrible scenes of murder and bloodshed and rapine that have ever been looked upon will take place. Peace will be taken from the earth and there will be no peace only in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause many hundreds and thousands of the honest in heart to gather there; not because they would be saints (Mormons) but for safety and because they would not take up the sword against their neighbor.” (Joseph Smith, 1843)
“It seemed though I was above the earth, and looking down upon it. As I passed along upon my way east I saw the road full of people, mostly women, with just what they could carry in bundles on their backs, traveling to the mountains on foot. I wondered how they would get through with such a small pack on their backs. It was remarkable to us[?] that there were so few men among them. It didn’t seem to me as though the cars were running, the rails looked rusty and the roads abandoned; and I have no conception of how I traveled as I looked down upon the people.” (John Taylor, 1877)
The Mormons have consistently warned against a secret conspiracy that would take hold in the latter days. This conspiracy would threaten, not only the freedom of the United States, but, eventually the entire world. These predictions began surfacing in the 1830’s and have continued to this day. Socialism/communism has generally been identified as the perceived threat. All you need to do is look to the progressives in the government, the news outlets and Hollywood to see that this is true.
About the only positive thing about these prophecies is that they are ended by another prophecy that the good people who flock to the mountains will preserve the Constitution as it was originally intended. Not by how a bunch of progressives wish to twist it. It won’t be just by the Mormons, but all those good people. They will re-establish a government as was originally intended by the Founding Fathers. All of this is to immediately precede the Second Coming.
There are a lot more of these prophecies, but it’s interesting that so much of what was written is coming true or is poised to come true. Much of what I’ve researched comes from the book, “Prophecy: Key to the Future” by Duane Crowther. All anyone needs to do is simply pay attention to current events. What is happening to our country and the world is so obvious…to anyone but a liberal.
