War Preparations and “Most Americans Have Absolutely No Idea How Serious This Situation Is”

Editor’s Note: As we Americans get ready to party this weekend, China and Russia and I assume Iran, and NKorea are getting ready for a [possible] very near conflict with America. I mean, c’mon, the signs are everywhere. But most of us here in the US are clueless to the threats and capabilities of our enemies. While our Administration busies with culture issues, racisim, and other nonsense, our adversaries are preparing to take down America. Just let that sink in for a moment…

Please in all honesty and seriousness be prepared for a arsenal of weapons that could be used against us including cyberwarfare, power grid outages, biological manifestations (did someone say – “Wuhan Virus” …?) Be ready and above all know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is the most important thing you can do right now,  for today is the day of salvation – 2 Cor 6:2.

As Americans Party, Our Enemies On The Other Side Of The Globe Are Preparing For Military Confrontation

By Michael Snyder – Jul 1, 2021

Here in the middle of 2021, Americans are generally feeling pretty good about things.  The COVID pandemic appears to be subsiding, our sports stadiums are full of fans again, the stock market has been soaring, and all over the country people are in the mood to party.  In fact, July 4th celebrations across the nation are likely to be quite boisterous this year.  But in China the mood is quite different, and the same thing is true in Russia.  In both cases, politicians are talking tough about the United States, and in both cases the military is being prepared for a potential future conflict.  Right now, our relations with China are the worst that they have been in decades, and our relations with Russia have never been this bad in our entire history.  But the vast majority of Americans are completely and utterly clueless about all of this, because most Americans couldn’t care less about what happens on the other side of the globe.

This week, China commemorated the 100th anniversary of the CCP, and Xi Jinping used that as an opportunity to warn that any nation that tries to bully China “will have their heads bashed bloody”

“Only socialism can save China, and only socialism with Chinese characteristics can develop China,” he said.

“We will never allow anyone to bully, oppress or subjugate China.

“Anyone who dares try to do that will have their heads bashed bloody against the Great Wall of Steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.”

So exactly who do you think that Xi Jinping was referring to when he made that statement?

Do you think that it was Denmark?

Perhaps Iceland?

No, of course he was referring to the United States.

During his speech, he also spoke very forcefully about reunification with Taiwan

Resolving the Taiwan question and realizing China’s complete reunification is a historic mission and an unshakable commitment of the Communist Party of China. It is also a shared aspiration of all the sons and daughters of the Chinese nation. We will uphold the one-China principle and the 1992 Consensus, and advance peaceful national reunification. All of us, compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, must come together and move forward in unison. We must take resolute action to utterly defeat any attempt toward “Taiwan independence,” and work together to create a bright future for national rejuvenation. No one should underestimate the resolve, the will, and the ability of the Chinese people to defend their national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Most Americans have absolutely no idea how serious this situation is.

In Taiwan, there is a big push to formally declare independence, and the Biden administration has been greatly angering the Chinese government by supporting the right of the Taiwanese people to determine their own future.

If Taiwan formally declares independence, China will invade.

And if China invades, the U.S. military will intervene.

If a military conflict between the U.S. and China suddenly erupted, it would probably not “go nuclear” initially.  But China has been feverishly preparing for a scenario in which nuclear weapons will be used…

China is potentially expanding its missile silos following satellite image analysis – indicating the country is also seeking to increase its nuclear weapon stockpile. At least 119 potential silos were identified in the desert in Gansu Province spread over 700-square-miles to increase their nuclear arsenal which is estimated to be made up of between 250 to 315 nuclear weapons. It comes as President Xi Jinping issued a warning to ‘bullying’ foreign nations telling them to stay out of China’s business during a speech earlier this week.

In addition to construction at that site, the Chinese are building new silos in other locations as well

“If the silos under construction at other sites across China are added to the count, the total comes to about 145 silos under construction,” Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, part of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said in a summary of his findings provided to The Washington Post. “We believe China is expanding its nuclear forces in part to maintain a deterrent that can survive a U.S. first strike in sufficient numbers to defeat U.S. missile defenses.”

Instead of focusing on making their military “more diverse”, the Chinese are actually working very hard to prepare for the next war, and the dramatic shift that we have been witnessing has stunned U.S. officials

The discovery follows recent warnings by Pentagon officials about rapid advances in China’s nuclear capability. Adm. Charles Richard, who commands U.S. nuclear forces, said at a congressional hearing in April that a “breathtaking expansion” was underway in China, including an expanding arsenal of ICBMs and new mobile missile launchers that can be easily hidden from satellites. In addition, the Chinese navy has introduced new nuclear-weapons-capable submarines to its growing fleet.

Meanwhile, the Russians continue to talk tough as well.

For example, Russian President Vladimir Putin just warned that there would be an “asymmetrical” response if certain boundaries were crossed by western powers…

“No matter what sanctions are imposed on Russia, no matter what the scaremongering, Russia is developing and in some respects our country has surpassed the European countries and even the US,” he said.

While Putin said the nation would not be taking steps that would be harmful to themselves, he said if boundaries were crossed, they would find “asymmetrical ways” to respond.

And we don’t have to use too much energy to imagine what such an “asymmetrical” response would look like, because the Russians just put on quite a show for us 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii

Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US.

At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War.

As the U.S. military focuses on “social change”, the Russians have been rapidly developing a whole host of incredibly advanced new weapons systems.  Here are just a few examples

3M22 Tsirkon, also known as Zircon, is a winged, hypersonic cruise missile. With an operational range of at least 1,000 km and a maximum speed of up to Mach 9, Tsirkon can pose a credible threat against North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) carrier strike groups (CSGs). Sarmat is a 200+ ton, liquid-fueled ICBM that supports a payload of up to 15 MIRV warheads; according to Putin, the weapon is virtually non-interceptable and boasts “practically unlimited range.” The S-500 “Prometheus” is the successor to Russia’s flagship S-400 “Triumf” missile defense system, offering across-the-board improvements in target acquisition, operational range, and tracking, as well as the functionality to engage hypersonic cruise missiles and targets flying at speeds of over 5 Mach.

During the Cold War, U.S. strategic forces had a clear edge over the Russians, but now the balance of power has shifted dramatically.

Most Americans don’t realize this, but in many areas the Russians completely outclass us now.

But at least nobody can grill hot dogs better than we do.

Fear God and Flee from Evil!

Many Christians and Tons Churches Have Lost Their Love for God

“But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5- Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent.” -Rev 2:4-5 (NASB)

Churches and Christians have become lazy and lethargic in their faith of a Holy, Righteous and Living God. Many Church services have all the bells and whistles in their worship but are empty, lifeless and void of any relationship with Almighty God.

There are many Christians who just go to church to “fit” in with the church crowd or they go to satisfy their egos or they go to make them feel good alleviating them from the guilt of not going. Notice I didn’t say they go there for the main purpose of meeting God and engaging in worship with Him only.

No act or show or faked Christianity, just worship!

Pastors are keen about telling their flocks how good they are and how they can prosper. And as such these fake pastors fail miserably at confronting sin and repentance and teaching all the Rock Solid truths of the Gospel.

Churches today are all about giving motivational talks – pep talks – to their flocks and steer people away from the rock-solid truth of God’s word. Remember the pep rallies we had at high school before big sports games…? Same thing!

God must be the only foundation of the church. Nothing else can replace this or assume His position. It cannot be about the men and women who form the leadership team, not the worship team, nor the anticipated/planned growth in attendance or the building infrastructure.

Consider the Seven Churches of Revelation written around 95 AD. Corruption, heresy, and spiritual deception had infiltrated them even at that early stage. Today, it’s 10-times worse! The Seven Churches were addressed directly by the Lord; He applauded some (2) but chastised the others (5).

I was talking to a good friend the other day and they said what a super teaching a local pastor had given at their church. One of faith and fear and how you arrive there. What was missing from our discussion was the teaching that God is the sole author of faith and Satan is the author of fear, guilt, worry and doubt. You see the church my friend attends is one of those that engage in a pleasing, non-engaging, softening of the Gospel with lots of rock music and entertaining pulpit attractions a “seeker” church model. Disgusting!!

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit must be at the core of every church and every Christian. No exceptions! Let’s learn today from how the Lord addressed the very first and young churches of Christianity.

The Churches of Revelation

“Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.” -Rev 1:3 (NASB)

Ephesus – abandoned their first love but looked good on the outside. They did and said all that was good but on the inside they had “lack-of-a-heart-for-God” trouble. The Lord’s rebuke was to REPENT and seek Him again.

Smyrna – Suffering persecution and were about to face more persecution for their faith.

Pergamum – Called out as Satan’s throne. They compromised their faith and idolatry crept in. They had succumbed to the likes of the Nicolaitans who taught occult paganism and compromise. Jesus hated their doctrine and deeds. The Lord’s rebuke was to REPENT and seek Him again.

Thyatira – A false prophetess – a Jezubel – was leading new Christians away from God. “...that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.” The Lord’s rebuke was to REPENT and seek Him again.

Sardis – A looking good church but was known that it was dead on the inside. It housed those who looked like Christians (you know they played the part very well) . They did and said all that was like Christianity but were not real in their faith. People were asleep to spiritual discernment and revelation. I think most of our churches today take on the traits of this church. Notice there were no commendations given to this church at the opening of the letter. Instead the Lord hits them hard with several rebukes. The Lord’s corrective action was to REPENT and seek Him again.

Philadelphia – “...because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.” Christ was at the center of their faith and Jesus was with them. This is the model for a church and a Christian.

Laodicea – A purely lukewarm church. A church that would make God vomit them out of His mouth. They compromised God’s truth, they were puffed up in their beliefs and they were totally Godless. They engaged in the prosperity doctrine; were known for richness in material goods, but bankrupt in spiritual truth and maturity.  The Lord’s corrective action was to REPENT and seek Him again.

So these seven churches represented the early spectrum of Christianity and their messages were clear but what about today? Yes indeed, they represent us today both at church and in our Christian walks. Take heed everyone the Lord is watching and He hears and sees all that goes on. He knows where people are at in their faith, in their Christian walk whether good or bad. He knows fake worship from the real worship and He hates false, empty and worthless worship. Read Rev 1-3 and see what the Lord had to say in the last book of the Bible. The message, the reasons for a declining church and what they had to do to get back in line and return to Him.

Churches and Christians, come back to the Lord in true and holy living. Look back on why you became a Christian and :“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” – Matt 22:37 (ESV).

Come back to the Lord. Worship Him in spirit and in truth!

“Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” -2 Peter 3:11-12




“What Kind of Man is This? Even the Winds and the Waves Obey Him!”

When the Storms of Life Overwhelm You, Seek the Lord!

“And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. 25- And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!” 26- He *said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. 27- The men were amazed, and said, “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” -Matt8:24-27 (KJV)

Who today doesn’t face storms in their lives? By storms I mean tough and difficult times. Hard decisions. Family matters. Spousal bouts of anger, frustration and understanding. Work issues. And on and on it goes…

Who today is exempt from these types of life problems? Not many, is my assumption.

Our text comes from the Gospel of Matthew in which Jesus just previously performed miracles of healing, now shows just how powerful He is.

The disciples and Jesus got into a boat heading out into the Sea of Galilee. From the north is seen Mt Hermon which rises 9200 ft from approx May through Oct. In this time window strong winds can develop that pass through the narrow surrounding valleys, hills and somewhat natural crevasses.  The boat came under attack from one these treacherous winding and powerful wind storms. The disciples were deathly scared and didn’t know what to do other than waking Jesus who was sleeping.

Realize that these same disciples saw some of the miracles from the hand of the Lord first hand, up front and personal and yet they didn’t know what to do. A real lesson for us friends … don’t follow their lead with the same, “I don’t know what to do” response when the storms of this life hit you. Seek Jesus!  Storms in this life will arise and try to overwhelm you; small or big, they will come upon you in many ways – work, family, friends, financial, emotional. You may be in the midst of some of these right now. Turn to Jesus!

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” – Psalm 55:22 (ESV)

Back in the boat Jesus replied to the disciples plea for help by asking are you [still, even now, after all we’ve been through] fearful? This would also imply that the [Devil’s] fiery darts of worry and doubt were launched and hit their target (you or me). The disciples were paralyzed in their faith; immobilized from letting their faith kick in. Is this you …is this me today? The enemy of our souls will try everything in his arsenal to derail you from following Jesus and exercising your faith in Him. He wants to kill, maim and destroy (John 10:10) those who authentically follow the Lord. Don’t let the water of unbelief in the Lord, despite your situation, smother your flame of belief in His powerful presence and ability to help you weather your storm.

Let’s not overlook that Jesus more or less admonished them for their lack of faith (unbelief) and fear. Another strong lesson for us to heed. No unbelief and no fear. (For additional info on how Jesus looks at unbelief read about His action in His hometown of Nazareth in Matt 13:57-58).

Unbelief will quench your faith as quickly as water over a fire.

Don’t give in to doubt over what the Lord can do in your storm. If you are seemingly trapped in the storm of despair, doubt, fear, worry or endless anxiety, break free of these today in asking Jesus for help. He will be there if you are authentic, real and believe in Him by calling out to Him in prayer. If Jesus who created the Sun, Moon, Stars and the expanse of the Universe can still a storm-ridden sea, He can bring calm, peace and power into your life and situation.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” – Heb 11:6 (KJV)

Seek the Lord friends – 24x7x365. Never give up believing Him for the strength and the answer for without faith it is impossible (yes, impossible) to please the Lord (Heb 11:6). Finally remember that Jesus came to the disciples plea for help in His timing and in His will for their lives. He will do the same for you and me but sometimes we have to go through the thorns to get to the flowers.

God bless you this day and please seek the Lord daily! Be a real and  authentic Christian in your walk with Him.
