Featured Article: We must choose between mass awakening & the destruction of America - by Paul McGuire - http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul247.htm
Recently, ISIS released a video threatening to strike America in a manner far worse than 9/11. Despite statements that the existence of ISIS training camps located just eight miles from Texas, near Juarez, Mexico are “unfounded,” reports from social media analysts state that ISIS is coming through our Southern borders with the intention of striking the heartland of America. In addition, reports from before 2005 tell us that the Iranian-funded terrorist organization Hezbollah, along with Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other militant Islamic groups have been moving up from the “Dangerous Triangle” area of South America and have sent their operatives through America’s porous southern borders. What is the purpose of these terrorist groups? To do the “unthinkable,” which is to kill, hurt, and destroy as many Americans as possible through every available means, including nukes going off in American cities and other forms of mass slaughter.
However, before I continue to document what many Americans, the media, and our politicians believe is the “unthinkable,” I want to tell you about a dream that was presented to me recently. After you hear about this dream I will let you decide whether it was simply the product of suppressed anxieties from watching the television news, a tapping into what Carl Jung called the “collective unconscious,” scientific predictive programming, or what theologians might call a prophetic dream.
First, this was not an ordinary dream and the person who shared it with me has never had dreams of this nature before. This person is rational and logical and not easily given over to flights of the imagination. On a personal level, I believe that this dream was prophetic…but, again I will allow you to decide.
In this dream, this person found himself in an America that was destroyed in some kind of brutal war. He saw men and women all over America being inducted into internment camps run by militant Islamic terrorists for the purpose of “re-education,” “brainwashing,” and mass killings.
The American men and women who were in these camps were psychologically and physically broken. One internment camp located somewhere in rural California looked something like a huge house-like compound. The militant Islamic terrorists held their heads high in arrogance and pride as the new slave masters of the American people they had captured. The American women were not allowed to look into their eyes, but had to look down and behave in total submission to their masters who would beat them, rape them, and kill them. In order to survive if their spirits were not already completely broken they had to act as if they were totally and mindlessly obedient, with absolutely no will of their own. The American men were also completely subjugated and broken. They had lost all will to survive or even resist; they were completely without hope. They were regularly being beaten, tortured, starved, and killed.
In this dream one of the individuals who was captured suddenly found himself escaping on a winding dirt road up in the mountains and as he continued on towards a town he saw everything around him looked as if it had been destroyed and burned in a horrible war. As he looked through the rubble of ashes, dirt, and bodies he saw the body of an American eagle with its skull smashed and its body and wings mixed in with the rubble. He realized that the eagle represented the death and destruction of America.
Everything in America had changed like something out of the movie The Postman, starring Kevin Costner, which took place after America was destroyed in some great war. As the dream continued, the person suddenly found himself back in the internment camp where he woke up and realized he had to record the dream so he could remember it and communicate it to as many people as possible. Again, I believe this was a prophetic dream of what America’s near future may be like, unless there is some kind of immediate major transformation in the hearts and minds of the American people.
Dreams have often guided and shaped America’s great leaders like George Washington and others. The Book of Acts talks about how in the last days “Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men dream dreams.”
No matter how you may categorize the dream, if you examine its message and compare it with the hard geopolitical realities all around us, there is at the very minimum a very high statistical probability such events will happen.
America is in the greatest crisis it has every known and the majority of the American people are unaware of the grave danger they are in. The majority of the media, politicians, and pastors are presenting an illusory interpretation of current events.
Yet the people who have to deal with the hard realities, like our U.S. military, cannot afford to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. Our military is monitoring things like Iran’s support of Houthi rebels in Yemen, which could lead to a confrontation with Saudi Arabia. Iran has sent an armada of eight ships towards Yemen, an action which could lead to a showdown with the U.S. At the same time, Iran remains the number one sponsor of terrorism in the world and has funded Hezbollah, which has been moving operatives from South America into the U.S. for decades.
The U.S. military knows there is great danger on the horizon and they are preparing for something big. Ten years after shutting down the NORAD underground Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado, the Pentagon has recently announced a $700 million contract with Raytheon Corporation to upgrade and reopen the base. It turns out that the way Cheyenne Mountain was built hardened it against EMP or Electro Magnetic Pulse weapons.
In the same time period as the announcement for the Cheyenne Mountain Base, the commander of the U.S. army in Europe has warned that NATO must unite in the face of a “real threat” from Russia. The Russian ambassador threatened that Denmark will be a nuclear target. In addition, an exercise to move live Patriot missiles across Europe to deploy them on the outskirts of Warsaw was conducted. Obviously, the U.S. military takes the threat of a nuclear confrontation with Russia very seriously.
Here in the United States, a Special Operations mission called Jade Helm 15 is set to run from July 15th to November 15th. According to United States Army representatives, the purpose of Jade Helm 15 is to “Practice core special warfare tasks.” Army Special Operations Command officials said "The size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart," and "To stay ahead of environment challenges faced overseas, Jade Helm will take place across seven states...The diverse terrain in these states replicates areas Special Operations Soldiers regularly find themselves operating in overseas." These Special Operations Forces will only train in five states: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. There is a reason why all over America there is an acceleration of military exercises with helicopters troops and convoys.
In Lakehurst New Jersey, approximately 600 Army and Air National Guard forces from New Jersey and New York are preparing for the worst-case scenario. The troops specialize in rescue, security, decontamination, and medical treatment. They are training in order to be able to rapidly assess and identify a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident.
In New York City, the New York Federal Reserve Bank is preparing for a potential shut down of all its operations. Officials have been transferring personnel and building up a satellite office there in case of a “natural disaster.” The New York Fed is doing this at the exact same time it is approaching an interest hike. What is the Federal Reserve preparing for? A “natural disaster” on the level of a tsunami, a nuke attack on New York City, an EMP attack? Whatever it is, they are preparing. Despite all this, the American people remain in a state of denial.
Throughout human history people and nations have consistently demonstrated that one of the fundamental aspects of human nature is to deny the obvious, which is nothing less than denying reality. Perhaps the most famous illustration of this principle is that after the Jews were confronted over and over again with the reality of Adolph Hitler’s intentions and the mass deaths in the concentration camps, they continued to say “It can’t happen here.” But, it did and this is why the Jews say today “Never again!”
America is in a similar situation today. We have openly been threatened over and over again by terrorist groups like ISIS that they are going to destroy us. But we play the same dangerous mind games as the Jews did and go into a state of denial and make up endless rationalizations about how nothing truly bad could ever happen in America. Really? Is this what history tells us?
In the Old Testament when the children of Israel were about to be destroyed by an enemy, God would raise up prophets and “watchmen” in order to warn the people. This was an act of mercy on God’s part because He was giving His people an opportunity to change from their evil ways, so that they might be spared the coming judgment. At the same time, both the Old and New Testaments warn of false prophets who promise the people peace, safety, and prosperity in the face of real danger. Despite the fact that we have overwhelming data from military intelligence and from economic and scientific analysts that warns us of great danger, there is almost zero response, even from Americans who claim to believe in God.
At the Founding of America, when the Pilgrims and Puritans were confronted with life-threatening dangers, they would immediately gather the people together and repent of their sins before a Holy God, and fast and pray until they saw God supernaturally intervene. However, modern Christians do not see God as their ultimate Source; instead they look to human leaders, human wisdom, and human governments to be their Saviors. The result of this is that now when America is in the greatest crisis it has ever faced, the people who call themselves believers in God are walking around in both denial and delusion, not seeking God as if absolutely everything depended on it, although it does.
We must grasp the fact that world is very dangerous right now and things can easily go out of control. For example, here in America and other places in the world a nuke could go off. The military in America or whatever nation this happens in have to make an immediate assessment of where this strike came from. What if there is a miscalculation or a series of miscalculations and any nation, including America, retaliates against the wrong source and accidentally sets off a chain reaction of war with WMDs? In a matter of minutes, deadly forces could be unleashed that would plunge America and the world into World War III. What if America’s enemies secretly joined forces and united to strike us at the same time? What if Iran detonated an EMP fired from a merchant vessel just off U.S. coastal waters? When this EMP detonated it could bring down the electrical grid, water pumps, and communications, and cars could not start, cell phones and media would stop, and huge areas of America could be sent back to the 1700s with almost no modern technology working.
What if at the same time this happened, militant Islamic terrorist cells united and launched a full-fledged attack upon our nation. The combined effect of our diverse enemies hitting us all at once could make the unthinkable happen. As American cities burned through nuclear strikes and our entire electronic grid crashed our military would be overwhelmed. There would be mass lootings and riots in the streets all across America. In the ensuing chaos, highly trained and organized militant Islamic cells could exploit the situation and hold millions of Americans in secret locations across the U.S. The possibilities of Russian, Chinese, North Korean, Iranian and Islamic terror cells being dragged into a thermonuclear conflict through faulty intelligence and wrong decisions could create any number of scenarios. What if China or Russia was nuked and they had faulty intelligence that made them convinced America was involved?
In the chaos, terror groups like ISIS could carry out operations that under normal circumstances would be impossible. Now, after outlining just a small percentage of the possible scenarios because space does not permit to explore cyber attacks crashing the stock market or toppling the U.S. dollar or other possibilities, the question is what is your response to these potentialities?
Most Americans would respond with any number of rationalizations because their consciousness is anchored in an irrational and artificial hope, which has no basis in reality. Here are the thoughts most Americans would have:
1. This is America; we are too powerful; it could never happen here. (This is a spin off of what the Jews believed in Nazi Germany when they said, “It could never happen here.”) The scenario of millions of Jews being hauled off to concentration camps and gassed to death had never happened before in history, so for them it was “unthinkable.
2. This is fear mongering and paranoia! America, our military, and our government are too strong to let this happen.
3. America has the technology, military resources, and intelligence agencies that would never let this happen (But 9/11 did happen and none of our military, technology, and intelligence agencies were able to prevent it. 9/11 should have been a warning call)
4. There cannot be another Great Depression because our banks have learned from the mistake and we have safeguards in place like the FDIC to protect us. (The American public is oblivious to the fact that all the laws which were enacted to act as safeguards have now been repealed and legally what the average America has on deposit in their bank, he no longer owns. The average American has been moved by a legal sleight of hand from depositor to creditor, which simply means you have no legal right to your money in the bank because you no longer own your money; the bank does. In addition, the FDIC can only work for very small crisis events. If there were another major economic crisis, the FDIC would be overwhelmed and unable to cover people’s savings. On a final note, if an economic crisis were to occur the banks would simply close; you would not be able to get your money out of the bank; and the ATMs would stop working in about 15 minutes.
The end results of all this is not to spread panic but to give you a reality check regarding where we really are as a nation. On a spiritual level, the root problem is that our trust is no longer in God, but in men and Man’s institutions. That is a serious problem and that is what the Bible would call worshipping false gods and idols. There is a basic operating principle in the universe that Man does not have the power in and of himself to save himself. This is why we need a Savior. But most of America has rejected the reality of God, denies His existence, and rebels against His laws. This is where the rubber meets the road.
As someone who does considerable research on geopolitics, economics, science, society, culture, history, and theology, I became convinced after years of research and as I personally moved from being an atheist to a Christian, that America is now in the very final phases of being prophetically warned. This is an act of mercy and love on God’s part. But there is a spiritual cycle that goes back to the beginning of time. This principle reveals that God is long-suffering and He will send prophets, both secular and spiritual, to warn nations of impending destruction. Even though His prophets are usually despised, God continues to send them because of His great love for Mankind.
But at a certain point Mankind crosses some kind of invisible line. It is at this point that God lifts His hand of protection and blessing on a nation and He allows its people to reap what they have sown. It is not so much that God is sending judgment, as it is that God simply leaves because the people have rejected Him. God then allows the natural circumstances to go into effect; He no longer restrains death and destruction; He moves out of the way.
The result is that all hell begins to break loose. I would suggest to you that we have now arrived at that point in America. Without God’s divine intervention both protecting and blessing us we are now left to our own devices. As a nation “We have sowed the wind and are about to reap the whirlwind.” Even though we are perhaps minutes away from the turning point, there still exists one last opportunity to change our ways and turn back to God. I have devoted my life to spreading this message. In my book Mass Awakening I show what can happen to a nation which makes the radical choice to turn back to the ways of God and how if even a remnant of the people make this choice it will ignite a Third Great Awakening or a MASS AWAKENING which can turn America from destruction.
This MASS AWAKENING is not a political awakening or a humanly organized movement. A true MASS AWAKENING happens when a certain percentage of people simply choose to turn back to God and God responds by supernaturally sending His power into those people.
A MASS AWAKENING is not a “religious movement” and it is not what you generally see on Christian television and Protestant evangelistic rallies, which are too often based on Man-centered psychological manipulation. Nor is a MASS AWAKENING necessarily some kind of moral crusade where religious people attempt to force non-religious people to adapt to their sexual, moral, and spiritual values. A MASS AWAKENING happens when the Personal Living God of the Universe moves into the hearts and minds of a certain percentage of people. The result is the release of an extra-dimensional explosive force called the dunamis, from which we get the word “dynamite.” It is somewhat like nuclear fission, but instead of releasing deadly radiation, it releases an explosion of life, love, creativity, healing, and blessing. It is a life-force produced by that is personal in nature and represents the Third Person of the Trinity, which is the Holy Spirit.
When this dunamis occurs, there is a powerful driving back of the forces of death and destruction. This is not a religious phenomenon at all! It is a quantifiable transcendent “super-reality” vs. “experience.” If it is an authentic MASS AWAKENING it releases a transformative force in a nation and people that re-creates the fundamental nature of relationships, economics, culture, society, politics, and science. But it is imperative to understand that there is nothing “religious” about it! Religion is a counterfeit compared to a MASS AWAKENING. A MASS AWAKENING cannot be thought of in traditional terms because it involves a new creation in all things and is the antidote to fear and despair.
