    I like to have something to add…but,but,brother John has nailed it.There is nothing I could say except you are 100% right on the money in every aspect of the fore mentioned stories.God bless you brother for being faithful in your watchman position.Thanks for being there with straight hard truth…We sorely need it,now more than ever.Dan.w

    Found something interesting.Brother John or anyone out there who cares about truth…put the word Arkancide in a search and be amazed…if America survives a obama presidency,could Hillary finish what was begun under Bill’s presidency?This is an eye opener.You probably forgot about it,or just plain not want to believe what you see…until you read it for yourself.God bless all,Dan.w

    John,
    Isn’t China a godless nation? China also has a one-child policy and abortion amounts are much greater there than here. 13 million abortions in China each year

    Corruption is well known there and much more widespread. Lastly China holds $1 trillion of our debt while our debt is $17 trillion. I just don’t agree that God is going to use China against us.

      God used pagan Babylon and Rome to judge Israel, why not use China to judge America?
      China will meet its final judgment at Armageddon.

    I agree with brother John’s seeing China as a whip on the U.S.The Bible is filled with examples of cruel,merciless nations and peoples who the Lord uses to judge other nations with.God is not mean,and has given us more than ample time to repent of our national sins.We may have surpassed the tipping point where this train wreck cannot be avoided.I’m not saying don’t pray,but perhaps lets focus more on individuals salvation needs than the prolonging of a nation that has set it’s face hard against God.There is a day of reckoning for every nation.

  5. Did you see on the news how Florida is having a blight of their orange trees? Acres of them are being cut down and they have no idea what is causing it. Also read the latest on what is happening in the Pacific Coast with Fukishima (spelling?) The fish and polar bears and other sea dependent life are dying off. according to the same article the beaches of California are also “dying” they could walk along the beach and it was bare of sea life.

      Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
      Hos 4:2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
      Hos 4:3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

    John, I like the point about there being no knowledge of God in the land. How many people have knowledge about the basic gospel message? How many people have ever read the Bible? From my little Jewish perspective, I seem to remember that there used to be a Christian religious holiday around this time of the year. No more. So far, I have not heard one song in public that has anything to do with the reason for the season. Kind of like abandoning Israel, has America abandoned God? There obviously is no fear of the God of Israel or the world would not keep spitting on Israel. Kerry just cannot be back in Israel again. Again! Either wee see major revival or good luck. Hosea 4: 1-3 sure describes America today.

  7. Diane Caprio says:

    Doesn’t the Rapture have to happen before the War of Armageddon? I don’t believe the born-again believers will be here then because we will be coming back for that war with the Lord. How could we do that if we are still here?

  8. patty says:

    debka file and jerusalem post say that obama is determined to have the outline for a peace treaty by may at the latest—concerning all issues. Kerry is over in Jerusalem trying to push Obama’s security plan—Obama wants an outline agreed to, not even the details–kinda like Obamacare. God can’t come soon enough with those blood red moons. Obama is determined to destroy Israel.

  9. patty says:

    I forgot! Mr. McTernan, remember in one of your comments you said you felt Obama was so evil he would make an agreement with Iran to bomb them and not the United States? Well in the recent Debka File, it does turn out that the missiles can reach into Israel, but the agreement with Obama was not to make them so they could hit the United States or Europe. How good it is to know that everything planned on being used to destroy Israel God will turn around and use to destroy her enemies.

  10. patty says:

    These huge snow storms here and now also in Jerusalem! Reminded me of the book of Job where God told him that the snow was saved to be used in the last days……..

  11. Pat says:

    There are probably more true Christians in China than here. The underground church is exploding

  12. Pat says:

    also wanted to say, God judges nations and he judges individuals. There is still time for individual salvation. the church needs to get busy

    We could be closer to war with China than people think, it’s almost as if they’re testing us.

    To Matt (Post #4): China is indeed a godless nation in its leadership. (So is the U.S.) However, God is moving powerfully in the places where we least expect Him to. Several parachurch organizations have reported that Christianity is growing rapidly in Asia, among people who for too long have been taught that there is no God. By some estimates, there are between 300- and 400-million Chinese Christians. However, most if not all of these people worship in house churches.

    The same can be said of people living in Muslim lands — especially in the Middle East. God is moving powerfully among the people. So many Muslims are seeing that their religion is filled with evil and leaves the faithful feeling empty inside that they want nothing to do with Islam. So when Jesus appears to them in dreams and visions — as He’s doing powerfully right now — they accept His invitation to become His followers. Then they seek out Christians to disciple them. One missionary who current lives in an Arab country told me nominal Muslims and Muslim-converts to Christianity are seeking after her to ask about Jesus, This hasn’t happened in those lands for centuries, where the Arab lands have been “closed” to Christians. But we serve a prayer-hearing and prayer-answering God, a wonder-working God who wishes that no one should perish but have everylasting life through Christ’s atoning sacrifice.

    The common connection between the church in China, elsewhere in Asia and the Middle East and Muslim lands is that the body there is undergoing heavy persecution. It comes from godless governments and Muslim theocrats and radicals who wish to stamp out the light of Christ in those lands. That’s why we should pray regularly for the persecuted church, and thank God that He continues to move in this world. Where we only see lost people whose minds are closed or clouded, He sees lost sheep who are in need of the Great Shepherd.

    I came across a figure that the US government owed China some 60 trillion, not 1 trillion dollars that we are made to believe. The government seem to always fudge on numbers and figures. If this is correct, this help to explain what I hear say that our national debt is close to 100 trillion dollars as some experts say. Who is going to appease the Red Dragon (China) whence its debt is not repay? Are we going to be food for the Dragon? China will never lack organs to sell now if they should demand organs or gold and silver.

    John, if what you say about the possibility of war between China and America perhaps being inevitable is true. And if there is a coming financial collapse. What will happen to the spreading of the gospel message? For America is the number one nation for the spreading of the gospel message isn’t it? How could these things take place before the church is raptured? For a war with China would greatly hinder the spread of the gospel. And a financial collapse would pretty much stop the spread of the gospel altogether, for it does take finances to spread the gospel. For the sake of the gospel being spread, how could the Lord allow these two things to take place before the church is raptured? Just curious. I was wondering if you might not be seeing over into the tributary period which is not far away when anything could definitely happen. We sure know it is close and God’s judgments upon the wicked will certainly be poured out then. Just trying to reason out things in my own mind. I am not trying to judge or question the things you say. I enjoy your insights blog very much. It has helped my father and I to see many things we never saw before. God bless you, John, as you keep informing and enlightening people to the truth of what is really going on out there in the world in so many ways.

  17. Joseph says:

    I do realize that God’s judgments are being poured out now on the ungodly but for the sake of the spreading of the gospel how could these two things that I just mentioned take place before the catching away of the church? Thanks, John.

  18. Joseph says:

    You are right John, God does not need America to spread the gospel. He truly can raise up whatever means He needs to do it. We are living in a very exciting and wonderful time. As God’s judgments are happening, we are also about to experience one of the greatest outpourings of God’s spirit upon mankind the world has ever known. The early and latter rain coming together.(James 5:7)

    We are living in a very narrow sliver of time before we enter into the tribulation period. And a lot of the things that are happening in the earth today is a foretaste of what is to come very shortly during the tribulation.

    It is a glorious time for the believer but a frightening time for those who are without God. I heard someone say once this world is as close to hell as the believer will ever get and as close to heaven as the unbeliever will ever get. How true. We need to do everything we can to reach the lost for indeed our Lord and Savior Jesus is coming back very soon. Things as we know them will not continue on this way much longer. God bless you and keep you John.

    I don’t know how many of you watch TV anymore, since there isn’t much to watch, but here is one actor who isn’t afraid to speak the Truth. If you’ve never seen this show (a lot of Redneck humor and no profanity), they always end the show with prayer in Jesus name.

    ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Phil Robertson Makes Anti-Gay Remarks, Says Being Gay Is A Sin

    Not only does “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson fail to understand what it’s like to be gay, but he also thinks homosexuality is a sin comparable to bestiality.

    In a shocking new interview with GQ’s Drew Magary, Robertson — the 67-year-old patriarch of the Duck Commander kingdom that earned his Louisiana family a fortune and a hit A&E series — opened up about “modern immorality” and the gay community.
