2017 has taken us on quite a ride. The events of this year once again eclipsed the events of the previous year, a trend that continues year after year.

In the United States (U.S.) we saw everything; historical Monuments removed from our nation, homosexual Pastors continuing to marry one another, we saw a multitude of immoral sex scandals right down to financially broken and even sick American households and so much more.

As we began to close out this year, U.S. President Donald Trump stated the U.S. Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem setting a new precedent that would surely shock the world if it becomes a reality. While just in word at this point, being on the eve of Israel’s 70th anniversary makes it all the more interesting.

This move did nothing to bring people together, it simply continues the trend of dividing our world, a trend we have seen escalate this year. In fact, this year has been so wacky conspiratorial topics such as a “flat earth” and UFO talk made mainstream headlines with the U.S. admitting they possess material from a supposed craft.

There have been so many unprecedented events this year it would be impossible to cover them all in this article, so we are merely covering several topics and will close discussing Iran.

Racial hatred in the United States would appear to be at new levels if you listen to the mainstream media. Never mind the fact that Barrack Obama, the last U.S. President happened to be half African American and half Caucasian.

It is the stated goal of the mainstream media to tell you what to think and believe and of course to keep the people divided so they cannot work together to solve the problems we face today.

Fueled by the mainstream media, this year we saw reverse racism escalate to the point of calling our Founding Father’s racists and removing historical monuments from our nation. This included those tied to our Founding Father’s. New Orleans removed a Confederate Era statue of Robert E. Lee, a statue that has been perfectly acceptable for more than 100 years, until now. They were not alone, Baltimore also removed Confederate monuments among other U.S. cities as well.

It did not stop there, a Los Angeles School District reduced funding to a school and their reason? “Too many whites. Meanwhile, some even question why we still sing the National Anthem at sporting events and that was only a taste of the hateful headlines.

Spirituality and Apostasy

It has often been cited 75-80% of the United States is “Christian,” but what exactly does that mean?

Let me dial that in for you.

Only 24% of Americans believe the Bible is the actual Word of God to be taken literally and only 38% believe God created us in our present form.

Does that clear it up for you?

The fact of the matter is our generation, our world is completely lost. The Christian Pastors and Teachers of our time are supposed to help us through these difficult times. Instead, today’s Pastors embrace homosexuality and even participate in homosexual marriage themselves.

As for our government, Trump claims to be a Christian and is surrounded by radical Christians who authorize him to wage war against North Korea. This same administration now recognizes “LGBT Pride Month. By the way, California now recognizes a “third gender option.

Drag Queen Public Library

In Russia the Jehovah’s Witnesses were even banned, labeled an extremed group and their property was seized.

All of the influential forces in our world have turned away from our Heavenly Father and have boldly embraced perversion.

The mainstream media has a “comedy” show that featured a 6 years old transexual boy wearing a bondage gag.

How about our education system?

Libraries allowed drag queens to tell stories to our children and parents were horrified by a drag queen’s on stage performance at a children’s talent show.


Our world and nation continues to degrade on many levels and finance is one of them. While some enjoy record stock market prices, one in five American households has zero or negative wealth. 65% of Americans lose sleep over money, 40% of Americans have nothing saved for retirement and 50% of working U.S. families are living paycheck to paycheck. All the while Americans have the highest credit card debt in U.S. history.

The U.S. is not alone, global debt has now reached $217,000,000,000,000 ($217 Trillion) while global GDP is three times less! How long would your way of living last if you spent three times more than you make? That is not the key to financial security, but financial catastrophe.


Just as we had another record breaking year for opium production in U.S. occupied Afghanistan, in one year opiates killed ten times as many Americans as all terror attacks in the last 20 years! This is a subject we have covered quite a bit this year, the U.S. does not seem to be reducing the opium output, but enabling it.

Autism rates skyrocketed in California following the passing of a mandatory vaccination bill. While U.S. fertility rates are at their lowest point since records began. Once again, sexually transmitted diseases have surged to record highs and one billion abortions have been performed worldwide over the last 100 years.

Our health has not only been reduced in the physical sense, but in the mental sense as well. Only 6% of millennials says their social media accounts depict them accurately.

Why is this important to note?

They are the future generation, our future leaders and they will inherit the world our young children will grow up in. If they are already mentally challenged, how will they perform in the future?

Speaking of our children, they are constantly bombarded with homosexuality where it is promoted in mainstream rags called “magazines”. In some of those rags our children are told how to perform anal sex “the right way. Never mind the fact that gender” reversal surgery is now on the rise.

Destroyed Syrian Town

Since the declaration of the “war on terrorism” by former President George Bush the United States has spent $250 million dollars a dayfighting” terrorism during the last 16 years. That amounts to $1.46 trillions dollars since 2001! Yet we know it is the United States who has been funding terrorism and a U.S. Congresswoman said as much.

Fast forward to today and President Donald Trump extended the “post-9/11 state of emergency continuing to keep unconstitutional powers available to the office of the President.

Meanwhile, this has cost American’s our dignity at our airports and our children, their innocency. It is a fact the TSA has failed 80% of tests in the latest undercover operation, yet they have launched a facial recognition program for anyone wishing to travel outside of the country. Over and over again, the right of the people continues to be violated and I doubt many even notice.

Do not forget, the United States government admitted once again to staging terror attacks in the recently released “JFK Files”.

In my estimation cyberwar comes in many flavors, not just “hackers” that we so commonly think of. Cyberwar is everything that is thrown at us; from our TVs, to social media and what the government tells us is true and accurate.

This year we heard MSNBC admit it is their job to “scare people to death” and control “exactly what people think”.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the internet must be regulated following the London bridge terror attack and that started a flurry of freedom reducing efforts by governments and large corporations alike. YouTube will now sensor non-rulebreaking content, Google “de-ranked” media outlet Russia Today and a “racist” website was shut down. Regardless of content, the site should not have been shut down.


If one racist site is going to be shut down, then all racist sites should be shut down, but we did not see that occur. This should also include terrorist websites like ISIS’ never ending social media content. Instead what we have is manipulation, we are told what is racist and what is not racist and the masses buy the line or they simply do not care.

Cyberwar also takes us to the realm of facial recognition technology which has now gone mainstream. Facial recognition software is now being used by stores to track customers all to provide you with the latest deal of course. Russia will also start using facial recognition technology as they launch a new National Biometric Database starting this year.

As harmless as some of this may seem, we do know the CIA has weaponized 85% of all smart phones so we know this and other technology can and is being used against the American people. Most smart phone manufactures already launched fingerprint technology which enabled you to unlock your phone with a quick thumb print. Now smart phones become unlocked simply by lifting the phone toward your face in a natural movement of the device which quickly recognizes that you are the owner of the phone. So not only are our fingerprints on file, but facial “mug shots” as well, sounds like a database, does it not?

What did the TSA have to say about facial recognition software? Those who are worried about facial recognition “shouldn’t travel”.

Was Trump there to save you? No, instead Trump was there to save the NSA Program which spies on the American population.

We also found out this year that algorithms run the world as the world moves further and further into a digital age. Speaking of a digital age some employees are now receiving microchip implants in order to gain access to the company with a swipe of their hand. What we will do for “convenience”.

This technological age is exciting, but unfortunately it does bring many unknowns and shackles with it. We are continually told robots could replace a third of the U.S. workforce by the year 2030. No wonder some are calling for a universal basic income.


Weeks ago U.S. President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel and claims the United States will move their Embassy to Jerusalem in the coming years.

Why reverse longstanding policy at a time like this?

“Trump doesn’t listen to anyone. He doesn’t respect anyone, neither his allies, nor the international community. Trump knows that his decision to give Jerusalem to an artificial state represents an insult to millions of Muslim and Christian people,” – Hassan Nasrallah, Leader of Hezbollah.

The declaration by Donald Trump to move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem was done in an effort to cause further division in the Middle East and what a year of division it has been.

Most of the people in the Middle East know the regime in Israel is in part an imposter regime, so naturally this upsets them greatly. Further, Iran has publicly stated this move could cause Muslims to unite and liberate Jerusalem. Biblically speaking Jerusalem is a key indicator when it comes to prophecy. We know when we “see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh,” and that desolation is Satan himself (Luke 21:20, read Chapter 4, The Timeline of the Tribulation).

The fact that this declaration by Trump was made essentially on the 70th anniversary of Israel being founded as a nation seems to dial in the escalated nature of our world.

New World Order

During the campaign trail now U.S. President Donald Trump promised to get rid of NATO, NAFTA and a slew of other global organizations.

So what actually happened?

Trump now says he will ‘not terminate NAFTA at this time and NATO is “no longer obsolete. Trump even left the borders open and said, dreamers can rest easy as he plans to target “illegal criminals instead”. For the sake of common sense, if you are an illegal alien you are a criminal. Best of all Trump said, “Hey, I’m a nationalist and a globalist.

We figured as much would happen, never do we see the nation state re-established just a continuing erosion of our freedoms and the embracing of a global order which is to be expected considering the hour we find ourselves in.

EU Leaders Launching Military Pact

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg said we need a ‘global superstructure to advance humanity and the way our world is headed he is correct. Unfortunately, it will not honor our Father in Heaven.

Russia once again called for a new world order and also an International Corporation to fight terrorism. The European Union did their part by launching a defense pact that consists of 25 nations, though 22 of these nations are already a part of NATO.

Fear and hype reigned supreme as it always does with the NATO chief saying the world is at the most dangerous point in a generation and the United Nations chimed in to say the world faces the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945.

We were also told North Korea is a global and direct threat to the United States, despite the fact they have great difficulty getting missiles off the ground and how could we forget their bent missile? The United Nations just placed additional sanctions on North Korea’s ability to obtain oil, the sanctions are so bad North Korea is calling them “an act of war.

As always America is doing their part to further the destruction of the nation state and promote the globalist order. New” documents show the Pentagon shipped billions worth to terrorists in Syria. Overall, the United States sold nearly $42 billion dollars in weapons to foreign counties this year. Despite calling Qatar a “terrorism supporter” Trump sold Qatar $12 billion dollars worth of F-15 fighters. Saudi Arabia agreed to purchase $7 billion in “precision munitions” from the U.S. and the Pentagon signed a new defense deal with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over U.S. troop presence. A nation which happens to sit just across the Strait of Hormuz from Iran.

How about the Brits? They drank their tea and increased arms sales to Saudi Arabia by 500% this year!

Back to the United States.

Drone strikes have now gone up 432% since Trump took office and U.S. military presence in the Middle East has risen 33% in the last four months. All indicators that we are gearing up for…

Setting Up The Next Stage… Iran.

With the election of a new U.S. President many were interested to see what his position would be concerning topics such as terrorism and Iran, as if he actually had a say in the matter.

Right out of the gate U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis called ‘Iran the biggest state sponsor of terrorism. This is ironic since the United States has funded more terrorist activities than I care to count. Further, Iran was accused of breaking the United Nations resolution they signed a few years ago and the U.S. said “restraint will be removed. Finally, the U.S. designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group for the first time.

It was clear, the agenda for Iran did not change. Just as the global agenda for past U.S. leaders had not changed as they are all controlled and manipulated by the children of Satan.

That agenda marched forward with the United States setting a new precedent by establishing a permanent military base in Israel, no doubt signaling a future conflict with Iran.

On June 8th ISIS said, “Soon we’ll attack the snakes head and destroy Iran. Four days later ISIS attacked the government of Iran. The difference between this terrorist attack and others is terrorist always attack the people. Never, ever do terrorists actually attack the government unless Global Powers want that government to be removed from power. That is the exact scenario we have seen play out in Syria and now Iran. This event was simply a warm up, whether or not ISIS continues to attack Iran remains to be seen, but we know who controls ISIS and their message was read loud and clear.

The sub-topic of “New World Order” did not stop in the last topical heading above, it continues here as well.

Glowing Orb Saudi Arabia Donald Trump

Glowing Orb Ceremony Saudi Arabia

Remember the “Glowing Orb Ceremony that U.S. President Donald Trump was a part of in Saudi Arabia? That kicked off the new “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology”. We also saw Trump and the leaders of 55 Muslim nations sign a pact against Iran and they pledged 34,000 troops to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Then Saudi Arabia led the formation of what is being called an “Arab NATO,” which declared war on terrorism.

What we have covered here documents a global move is being made against Iran, a move larger and more coordinated than we have ever witnessed. Nations and terror groups are being funded and armed in an effort to attack Iran.

I want you to think about something for a moment…

70 years ago the Muslim nations were united in their faith and stood against the formation of the nation named Israel. Fast forward to modern times and we have a great divide within the Muslim world. Much of this division has been fueled by the United States global “war on terrorism“. This great war has cost Americans the lives of their sons and daughters, their freedoms and $1.46 trillion dollars and destroyed the cohesion in the Middle East.

When U.S. President George Bush launched the “war on terrorism” in 2001 we were told the Muslim people were not to blame. Rather it was simply a few bad Muslim terrorists who were at fault and they had to be sought out. The American people bought the lie and our nation and the world has never been the same.

Today, entire nations, Muslim or not are targeted if they are not a part of the current global structure and they call it providing “humanitarian aid“.

Does this look like humanitarian aid to you?

The entire “war on terrorism” was simply a ruse, a stepping stone for where we have come today. While the Muslim nations were essentially united toward a common enemy 70 years ago, today they are divided and will now do the once unthinkable…

Unite to attack a Muslim professing nation and that nation is Iran.

This will continue to build and simmer until the pot boils over…

US Ambassador Nickki Haley Stands In Front Of Iranian Made Bombs Used By Yemen Rebels

Nikki Haley In Front of “Iranian Bombs”

A part of that simmering is the current conflict between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Just weeks ago U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the ballistic missile that was fired on Saudi Arabia by the Houthi rebels was supplied by Iran. Haley continued her condemnation of Iran by stating Iran’s fingerprints are “all over” the conflicts in the Middle East. Haley capped it by calling for an international coalition against Iran which fits right in with the 2009 Brookings Report titled, “Which Path To Perisa”.

It is plain as day, the Global Powers that we covered in Chapter 2 of “The Timeline of the Tribulation” are making a move towards Iran. Global leaders from around the world are calling the war in Syria over, which signals…

The next stage will shortly begin…


In June of 2017 we produced the following video discussing much of the direction Global Powers are and will take.

  1. Yes I know how to rightly divide the word, Daniel 8 verse 16 And I heard a man`s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said , Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. ( so Gabriel is going to explain the vision ) in verse 19. in verse 20 the two horns are Media and Persia. verse 21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first King. ( that was Alexander the great, history) verse 22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power. ( these four are the four hidden dynasties) verse 23 to 27 is when AC shows up on the scene. That is what this vision is all about in the time of the end, AC showing up claiming to be Christ.

    • It certainly occurred in history as we pointed out in the study, however it was not fulfilled, it was only an example for the end times. As I already pointed out in verse 17 “at the time of the end shall be the vision”. The vision will apply to the end times per the Angel. Make sure you read verse 19 which you mentioned, it says:

      Daniel 8:19
      “And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.”

      The Angel once again tells Daniel what time period the vision actually applies to which is the time of the end. Not in ancient history during the time of Alexander. No issues with you disagreeing, we can still be “friends”. If you have anymore questions or concerns about this topic please submit it to Bible Q&A where it is more relevant. Thank you.

      • Thank You, I am only trying to get to the truth in Gods word. Verse 23 says it all. if Iran falls how can verse 23 come to pass? Like Jesus said, you have not because you ask not, This is how we all learn is by asking. Thanks.

  2. That is pure speculation on your part, and is history. In Matthew 24 and Mark 13 and Luke 21 when the disciples asked Jesus Tell us, when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world? It does not say any thing about a war with Iran. does it say any thing about a war with Iran in the book of Revelation? Jesus said in Mark 13 behold I have foretold you all things. Thank you.

  3. That`s what I thought you can`t show me where in the Bible it says that there will be a war against Iran, because it is not in the bible. You are a dreamer why don`t you stick to Gods word instead of yours?

    • I provided you documentation, you just do not want to take the time to study. That is okay, but please do not say I dreamed it up when I told you exactly where you can document it for yourself. In the end, whenever we disagree with one another we need to be respectful, you do not need to turn Christians into your enemy. As Christian brothers and sisters we need to lift up the body of Christ, not divide it. Thank You.

  4. Can you show me where in the bible it says that there will be war against Iran.

  5. Thanks for posting. I guess i missed a few things in the last year, and happy new year!!! I was wondering if you could post some happy things, like stories of heartwarming issue’s, would kind of take the edge off of some of all this bad news. we all know what is coming, but there are still heartwarming things that happen in the world. Thanks again Brandon!
