A Chilling Image

I woke up this morning, and as I have grown accustomed, after my morning prayer I turned on my laptop. After logging on, I went to a news sight I visit sometimes, just to see what's happening on this spinning rock we call home.
I was in the process of wiping sleep from my eyes, when an image popped up that did more to bring me to full alert status than a cold shower and a slap in the face combined. Grinning back at me, pixilated in high resolution, were the faces of Mahmoud Ahmadinajad and Vladimir Putin, the two men shaking hands, the bond of friendship evident on their faces.
For those of you that were still uncertain whom the democracy loving Vladimir would side with, well, you've gotten your answer.
I got the gnawing feeling, looking at that picture that I was witnessing the chess master and his unwitting pawn. You see, hate has a way of blinding you to other men's agendas, and as long as the man promises to 'have your back' to support you in your endeavor to exterminate, eradicate, or otherwise wipe off the face of the earth the object of your seething hatred, you don't question whether or not he has hidden motives, or what's in it for him.
I believe that in the eyes of Vladimir Putin, mad Mahmoud and his ilk, are a means to an end. The oil surplus is just a pleasant bonus, but his intentions are, what they have always been, to use third party nations, nations that harbor murderous hatred toward America to do his dirty work, to weaken us both financially, and militarily, so that when the opportune time comes, we would be too weak to put up a fight.
The pieces are falling into place with startling rapidity, I believe I talked about new alliances being forged against America on this very site, about a week ago, and now we are seeing it come to fruition.
If you're worried now, I have some bad news for you, this is only the beginning.
The number one rule in planning and executing such a monumental shift of power, is to consistently and without fail assess your enemy's resolve, to know his strengths and weaknesses, always prodding, always looking for the chink in the armor, that instant when due to either distraction or lack of concentration, he lets down his guard.
Let's be honest, there are more chinks in the armor than we can count, and anyone of them can be exploited in such a way that they would have disastrous ramifications.
With all these things taking place, it's good to know our refuge is certain, and our protection prepared. There are benefits to being a true servant of God, an though they may not be the yachts, private jets, and palaces some believe, in the coming months, I would take the peace of mind that God offers over those things any day of the week.

With love in Christ,

Michael Boldea Jr.

Brother Michael (and all),

As I read the headline to this post, I already knew of the image you spoke of for I, too, had a similar reaction to the very same image (and I would venture to say, probably, on the same news site).

The rapidity of this happening, as you spoke of, is what we the children of God should be noticing. We should not be shocked or dismayed by these images, for the Lord has already revealed to us that these things would be happening. However, the pace at which these pieces are continually being put together, and the rest of the world's boldness to speak against the 'powers of the west' should only urge us to be on our face before God even the more.

But people of God, we must remember that those things that were prophecied against this nation will happen on a day when we least expect it. This is why we must hear by the Spirit of God and not look to the natural, or lean on any man in these times. God's word says that only Noah, Job and Daniel would be delivered, and not their sons or daughters in these times.

Ezekiel 14:20 - Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.

The day comes when men's hearts will fail them for fear of what's to come. God offers us a peace that passes all understanding.

Let us humble ourselves before the Living God that we may be pleasing in His sight always.

Get ready saints! As Michael said, "This is only the beginning..."

As Michael encouraged me in a previous thread that I should not be fainthearted or in retreat, so now I encourage you all from the Lord's reply to Jeremiah, "If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 8:16)

Let's put on the weapons of our warfare and get ready for battle. Truly, we are about ready to see the words from Heaven in Revelation 12:12 come to pass in its fullness. It reads, "But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short."

How is it that Satan knows the times and seasons and that his time is short, but the Laodicean church is content, being fat, rich, and happy and in need of nothing?

O' Lord, save your people, the remanant of Israel! (Jeremiah 31:7)

Are we still fattening ourselves for the day of slaughter or are we obeying His commands and seeking righteousness and humility as the Lord instructs in Zephaniah prior to bringing judgment? Perhaps we will be sheltered on the day of the Lord's anger.

Let us get ready NOW saints!

And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Joel 2:28

Over the years I've read a few dreams and visions which are from the Lord thanks to your Helping Hand web site and a few others.
A short dream from a nobody in 2005 stood out.
He saw the U.S. enforcing a blockade near the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf against Iran and this is when a russian ship escorting an Iraian oil tanker fired a nuclear tipped cruise missile at one of our Aircraft Carriers and then began the end of America.
And I'm waiting and listening for the next U.S. led sanctions to be put in place by the President.
Will it be a naval blockade ?
I saw the picture of Putin and Amadinejad and read an artilce on it out of Israel and they really think Putin is there to work out a 'compromise' between the west and Iran.
I wrote on their talk back that Putin and Amadinejad are preparing their plans to deal with the west ,specifically the U.S.
We are the chief target of Russia and Iran.
Iraq ,Babylon as long been associated with judgment in God's word and that is why the U.S. is a stuck sitting duck there.
it will not turn out well for the presumptous,arrogant empire there as we can onbce again see the handwriting on the wall in the same place.

For many years now ,I've see Israel trust the U.S. for their peace and security (salvation) instead of seeking God.
The U.S. president is their demi-god ,whatever he tells them to do they obey and ignore the will of God.
This must change as God will allow His people Israel into a corner with no one to turn to but Him.
So we ,the lofty empire must be removed ,reduced ,humbled and no longer Israel's Idol.
We are so close as Putin and Amadinejad get their plans in gear.

Brother Michael,
As you well know.
Amos 3:7
7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

It is so sad when most all denominations keep their people from all that God has given. What hope, direction and comfort is lost for lack of knowledge. Many of them will be part of the great falling away.

I wouldn't want to be them!

I believe the die was cast yesterday for the United States. Shortly we will see the anger of the LORD; Sec. of State said that Jerusalem WILL BE divided and Israel will give back more territory and a road connecting the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) would be built to connect the Palestinian nation. This will split Jerusalem and Israel right in half. God has said that He will destroy those who divide His land. We are treading on dangerous ground. Our President has said that Hindu's, Muslims, Christians and Jews all serve and pray to the same God! How long is God going to tolerate such blasphemy? Our days are numbered; I feel we have been weighed in the balances and found wanting.

You know Bro Michael, I too have been called one of the doom and gloom sisters, and Praise God I counted it a compliment. I too have often said I am not a doom and gloomer I am a realist.
I don't see how anyone can read the Word of God and not see what time we are in. It is not a gloom and doom time for the child of God it is a time of glorious victory over evil for all eternity. A time in which we will see the return of our blessed Saviour Jesus Christ, a time to look foward to, regardless of wether we have to give our lives for our faith or not.
The disciples looked foward to their deaths because they knew what the end of that earthly life meant, eternity with Jesus.
The problem with the church is it loves the world too much. I has no desire to be with Jesus, it wants to enjoy the pleasures the world has to offer. God help us all!

I went to work today and saw this handshake on the news. My jaw dropped to see this event happen, especially in light of propehcy.

No U.S or Israel media covered this story Only WND.
God has a way of brinnging the secret and hiddent things to the surface.
The U.S. and Israeli government plan to cover up the brutal expulsion of Jews from their land to reward the enemies of God,rewarding the Islamic terrorists for working to destroy Israel.It's not Russia or China who work hardest to destroy Israel ,but the U.S. who sits at the head of this table.
Plsam 83 1-5
It shows the hand of the U.S. in thwarting God's command to Israel to rebuild the 'waste cities' and build, on the land He has given them. Amos 9:14-15
This evil interference in Israel which the apostate Church all but ignores ties in with America's end.
Here's an exerpt from the story ,link below.

The evacuation the past few days of five makeshift Jewish communities in the West Bank was micromanaged behind the scenes by the U.S. government, WND has learned.

Israeli police, backed by the Israel Defense Forces, clashed in recent days with Jewish activists and West Bank Jewish residents while destroying the five small outposts the government deemed illegal, because construction was not coordinated with proper housing authorities. The outposts, erected alongside existing legal West Bank Jewish communities, were first built Sept. 30, during the Jewish Succot holiday.

Israel strictly enforces regulations against Jewish building in the West Bank while hundreds of thousands of illegal Palestinian outposts have been constructed the past few years. That includes massive apartment complexes and refugee camps on hundreds of acres of land in Jerusalem owned by the Jewish National Fund, a Jewish nonprofit that uses donor funds to purchase property for Jewish settlement

Bro Andrew, and Bro John all the brothers it is so refreshing to be amidst young men on fire for God. Yes and Bro John this morning we see the sec of state, praying for peace in the birth place of our Saviour. Our leaders do not know their Bible, our people perish for lack of knowedge of Gods written word. God help us all for surely God's hand of judgement is about to fall on this nation.
