Ron Paul Liberty Report: The Pivot Back to Liberty

Oh I long for the day when the lamb will lie down with the lion, but we are not there yet! Here is a look at history from the perspective of before the age of American imperialism to now. I found the article to be insightful and hope you do to! Blessings/sc

The Pivot Back to Liberty

By Chris Rossini

Sincere advocates of liberty need to travel a tough and rugged path. Surrounded by the darkness of empire and its draconian reach into all aspects of our lives, champions of liberty must keep their eyes on the prize without becoming despondent.

This can be challenging in a society that has come to rely so heavily on the state. The ideas of liberty are hardly ever considered an option. Often they’re even frowned upon.

How does one deal with such a situation? Once you understand the principles of liberty, you can’t just give up on them and pretend they don’t exist. So how does one grapple with times that are so deleterious to liberty?

The easiest way is to contemplate the big picture. If there’s one thing about life, it’s that it hardly ever moves in one direction for very long. Pivots and reversals regularly occur and often when they’re least expected.

In fact, prior to the formation of the American empire, it was the warmongers themselves who were despondent. They were the ones who had to live with the reality that their ideas were not an option.

It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?

Natural Law as a Restraint Against Tyranny

Video with Judge Andrew P. Napolitano recorded at the Mises Circle in Costa Mesa, California, 8 November 2014. This seminar examined the institutions of a stateless society and explored topics such as private defense, private police, privately produced money, the role of markets, and how stateless legal systems would work. This particular video in the series is about 22 minutes long and has over 47k viewers at time of posting.

Video shows Judge Napolitano at his best on natural rights. He stresses that you cannot take away natural rights with legislation even if you try because they do not come from government at all. He gives an interesting brief history lesson and then apples the concept to where we are today. He ends with a huge challenge to this generation and the next in a powerful prediction. Please take time to watch this. I promise you will be glad you did. Even if you already know these things, it will help you articulate the ideas to others and we all must do that!

FFC History: Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

Signs of the Times Series: Timing 6 – What will Happen to the USA, When

[Editor’s note:  The Bible says in not one, but two places that your old men shall dream dreams and your young men shall see visions (see Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17), so we should expect this to occur.  A dream/vision may be prophetic.  It can also be for a warning.  If you don’t understand a matter, it is always good to go to the Lord about the matter and ask Him for clarification.

.

When Clint shared this with me that is what I did.  My heavenly Father did not confirm or deny the accuracy of the vision to me relative to the date.  I have shared it with a few trusted friends and do not get any yeahs or nays only questions.  As I prayed and pondered,  I began to see more and more things lining up with the fact that the USA is under judgement and walking arrogantly now against the will of God in many areas.  Our heavenly Father loves us and wants us to walk righteously and receive His Son and be a blessing to others.  He loves us enough to call us to repentance in many ways and on many levels.

.

Over and over and over again, the bible tells us ‘he who hath an ear let him hear’.  Are you listening?  What is He telling you?  So I asked the Lord about sharing this word, because you see, I serve as a watchman on the wall.  If I know trouble is coming and fail to warn the people, than I am complicit and a part of the problem rather than the solution (see Ezekiel 33).  The penalties for failure to warn are severe.  Thus I have chosen to publish the series.

.

Please seek the Lord in this matter and ask Him what it means for you and your household and for the nation.  My prayer is that we will repent, turn from our wicked ways, and turn to the Lord seeking Him while we yet may do so.

.

II Chronicles 7:14
 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Timing 6 – What will Happen to the USA, When

by Clint Young (reprinted with permission)

Timing 1 – 2300 Days here

Timing 2 – 1290 Days here

Timing 3 – 1335 Days here

Timing 4 – 1260 Days here

Timing 5 – Shortness of Time

In the last 5 e-mails[posts] I have defined 4 different Biblical time periods and shown how they interrelate with each other.  I have attempted to be accurate putting each scripture in context with those around it and the rest of the Word.  I have asked the Heavenly Father for wisdom and submitted my thoughts and timing ideas to Him.  I do believe that the first 4 e-mails are accurate regarding the timing of the 2300 days, the 1290 days, the 1335 days, and the 1260 days.

Perhaps you feel these matters are not important now and perhaps you are right.  Yet, things are changing very rapidly in the Middle East and these days may soon be upon the world.  If this happens, it will affect you and your family.

The 5th e-mail[post] pointed out that the time period of 2300 days which includes the 1290 days, the1260 days and most of the 1335 days, may soon begin.  I define “soon” as within the next couple of years.

In this final e-mail[post] regarding timing I will define what will happen to the USA and when.  This is based upon a vision that I received in January 2009. I do believe the vision that I received was accurate.  This vision was very vividly burned into my memory, much more so than daily events.

Now to answer the question, what will happen to the USA, when?

Every empire falls.  This is the history of the nations and of empires of nations.  The USA will fall. The 10 international banker families who now control most of the world’s currencies have been at work to insure that the USA does fall.  Currently, these families pretty well control the USA through the Federal Reserve which they own.  The president appoints the head of the Federal Reserve.  Yet, the money of the Federal Reserve buys the president and well over 90% of congress.  So before any president appoints a Federal Reserve head, the international banker families who own the Federal Reserve decide who will be appointed.  The Federal Reserve has a very big problem.  That problem is that they know hyperinflation is coming to the USA.  In fact they orchestrated it through the spending policies of Obama and Bush.  When the USD (United States Dollar) will no longer buy anything due to the coming hyperinflation, then the Federal Reserve will lose control.  When the USD is worthless the American peoples will demand that the Federal Reserve be absolved.  At that point the large banking families of the world will lose control of the USA.  They are not about to let that happen.  Instead they will insure the USA is destroyed.

This is the reason that for the last 20 years one USA factory after another has been exported outside of the USA.  The bankers want to insure that the world wide manufacturing base stays in tact after the USA lies in ashes.  About all that is left of the manufacturing base in the USA is the assembly of larger assemblies from smaller sub assemblies that are built outside the USA.  The assembly of sub assemblies into larger assemblies is the easiest of manufacturing and can more easily be reproduced.

Many of the few remaining manufacturing plants in the USA are foreign owned.  These foreign owned companies have insured that any manufacturing that occurs in the USA is duplicated in their own countries.  A tremendous amount of documentation and travel has occurred by American engineers to insure that American based manufacturing can be and is duplicated elsewhere in the world.

The bankers will buy any remaining USA based manufacturing capability they want to preserve in the next 18 months.  They will have this manufacturing capability quickly exported.  I know one mover who can come into any factory and crate up all huge machines and tools and have them shipped anywhere in the world.  This entire process does not take months.  It can be done in a few weeks time in most cases.  He has shipped a lot of once USA factories to somewhere else in the world.  Of course this always meant the loss of a lot of jobs.

If you have any doubt about what I am saying here, just look at the empty factories throughout the USA that once where a source of jobs and wealth for the USA.  Almost all of them are gone.  Most that remain are foreign owned.  Just look at the lost of jobs in the USA.  Job creation will continue to be a worsening problem until the USA goes down.

The international bankers are going to burn down the house called the USA.  They have and are still removing all that they want to keep before it is burned.  I just brought to light one aspect of what they want.  That is the manufacturing capability.  There are many evidences that soon the financial owners of the USA house are going to burn it down.  The question is when?  To answer the “when”, I did ask the Heavenly Father in January of 2009, “when will the USA be destroyed”.

flameThe same evening I asked, I received a vision answering the “how” and the  “when”.  In this vision I was taken to a continuous time wall which begins in 2012.  Beyond that time all events and associated timing are hidden.  When I came to the wall, I said that I can not go past the wall.  At that moment I was taken up in the air above the wall.  Above that wall is a lake of fire.  When I saw the fire I was afraid and tried to back away.  Flames from the fire quickly surrounded me but I was not burned.  I was no longer afraid.  I became aware that another being was with me.  I assumed it was an angel.  But I do not know for sure.  The other being told me to cross the lake of fire.  As I stepped I glided over the top of the lake of fire.  Every direction I stepped, I glided.  It was like walking was transformed into gliding.  As I crossed the lake of fire I noticed what look like a black periscope.  Instead of going up, the periscope went down into the continuous wall below.  I instantly knew what the periscope would do.  Anyone that looked into it could see all the coming events of the future and when these events would occur.  I do not know how I knew this.  I just knew.  I started to glide over to the periscope.  I wanted to look into this most revealing periscope.  But the being with me said “NO.”  Then I looked at the fire around me and became afraid again.  I immediately obeyed the companion I was with.  It was not meant for me to look into that periscope.  Perhaps it is reserved for another.  I do not know.

The lake of fire looked like it went forever.  Yet, I glided quickly over it.  It seemed like it took no time at all to cross.  At the other side of the lake of fire there was a large tunnel.  I went into it.  It was lighted but it was not bright light.  Suddenly, I started to go down this tunnel very fast.  The walls started to become very hazy as I went down the tunnel because I going so fast.  Soon I came out in the air.  I was high above the USA approximately in the middle of the country.  I was looking to the South and to the East of the USA.  Immediately, I started to see a few nuclear explosions in the South and then on the East Coast.  Then many explosions followed.  It looked like the whole land towards the South and the East was destroyed.  I never was allowed to turn to the West in this vision.  These explosions occurred within a few minutes.  As I was watching these nukes go off, a large banner went across the sky.  Written on the banner was “JULY 8, 2013.”  Then I heard a voice which said “July 8, 2013.”

Immediately after both seeing and hearing the date of “July 8, 2013” I was back in the bed where I had laid down for the evening.  I was not in a dream state nor had I yet gone to sleep prior to seeing this vision.  It took me a few moments to realize where I was.  Everything that I saw and heard was very vividly recorded in my memory, more so than ever day events.  I think this is the case because what happened in this vision was apart from the flesh.  So there is no distortion of the vision by the flesh.

If the July 8, 2013 date for the nuclear destruction of the USA is correct, then there is little time left.  The peoples of the USA will not see the end of the daily sacrifice and the beginning of the great tribulation.  However, they may see the building of the temple (“sanctuary”).  They may see the beginning of the daily sacrifice.  We will see.

I have no desire to see the USA destroyed.  I enjoy many benefits this country has to offer.  My family lives here and I do wish for them to also enjoy what I have for so many years.

Nonetheless, if this vision is accurate, then I do believe July 8, 2013 will be the day of tremendous nuclear destruction upon the peoples of the USA.

This is the last e-mail[post]  I will write this year concerning timing. If the geopolitical landscape changes to allow the certain building of the temple (“sanctuary”), I will let you know if I am capable of doing so at the time.

Always go the Heavenly Father for guidance and clarification of anything you think you should or should not do regarding end time events.

[Editor’s note: This is the sixth of a series of 6 posts about biblical ‘end times’ prophecy given to me in email format October/November 2011 and is reprinted with permission.  Clint Young is a friend of mine and has been for many many years. I know him to be a man of integrity and a serious student of scripture. He has a very analytical mind and has spent a great deal of time studying scripture relative to prophetic events (past present and future). I will give you the series on timing first and then some practical advice and tips he has shared with me over the years. Please join with me and examine your heart and see if you are ready for whatever might lie ahead of us. Ask the Lord not only about the condition of your heart but the condition of the nation and if there is anything we can yet do as individuals and as bodies of believers to help one another to see the salvation of the Lord in our midst in ways that will bring as many to Him as possible.  It is important that we keep looking to Him for the answers and know the signs of the times!/sc]

Signs of the Times Series: Timing 5 – Shortness of Time

Timing 5 – Shortness of Time

by Clint Young (reprinted with permission)

My Political Calendar

Wake up America!

Timing 1 – 2300 Days here

Timing 2 – 1290 Days here

Timing 3 – 1335 Days here

Timing 4 – 1260 Days here

I have sent you 4 e-mails[posts]  looking at timing of last days events based upon 4 periods of time defined in the Bible.  These 4 time periods center around the rebuilding of the Jewish temple or “sanctuary” as Daniel named it.  After the building of the “sanctuary”, the daily sacrifice will begin.  The last e-mail[post] defined 2345 days of events that will occur starting with the daily sacrifice.

To date[written in 2011 for reference to future readers] NO temple (“sanctuary”) has been built.  NO daily sacrifice has begun.  Yet, the Middle East is dramatically changing very rapidly.  Soon Syria and Iran may be at war.  The powers of the USA have recently convinced Turkey to turn its support from Syria.  This in itself is very significant and has happened within the last week.

The bottom line is that rapid change has occurred this year in the Middle East and is still occurring.  Among these many changes to come may be an agreement that will pave the way for Israel and the Jews to rebuild their temple (“sanctuary”) on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem.

When this even occurs, please refer to the 4th e-mail[post] to define the final last days timing per the defined Biblical times of 2300 days, 1290 days, 1335 days, and 1260 days.

I have put these 4 time periods in perspective based upon what the verses say about these days and supportive Biblical scriptures.

Realizing the time may be short before these last day events occur,  I have proceeded with haste to take care of personal matters that take time.

I know that this type of thinking may be strange to you.  Yet, I do believe that we have very little time and need to take care of any important matters or business that requires significant time to accomplish.

Soon I will send you the 6th and last e-mail[post] regarding the timing of the last days.  You may wish to save them in a folder titled “Timing”.  This topic may not be too interesting to you now.  But as more Middle East and world events start to unfold the content of these e-mails may serve you well to understand the timing of major events in the last days.

Always go the Heavenly Father for guidance and clarification of anything you think you should or should not do regarding end time events.

Signs of the Times Series: Timing 4 – 1260 Days

Timing 4 – 1260 Days

by Clint Young (reprinted with permission)

Timing 1 – 2300 Days here

Timing 2 – 1290 Days here

Timing 3 – 1335 Days here

The way the Middle East was up until 2011 did not bring about the building of the Jewish temple (“sanctuary”) on Mount Moriah.  During 2011 [editor’s note:  this series was written in 2011] tremendous changes have occurred and are underway in the Middle East.  Governments have fallen and new ones have taken their place.  Now the USA is on the verge of war with Syria and Iran after taking down Gadhafi.   Significant changes will continue to occur in the Middle East in the next few months and years.   In the midst of all this “change” the building of the temple (“sanctuary”) may seem obscure.  However, this event is most important in relationship to end time events.  The building of the temple (“sanctuary”) and the beginning of the daily sacrifice there will mark the beginning of a 2335 day countdown that will end with the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Scheifler says on his website that this image was adapted slightly from an image by Tom Dunbebin

Traveling Hebrew Sanctuary (image credits below)

In the previous 3 e-mails/[posts with links above] I pointed out 3 periods of days defined in the Book of Daniel.  This e-mail/post defines a 4th period of 1260 days defined in book of Revelations.  Below are listed the verses mentioning these 1260 days:

  • Revelation 11:3 “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.”
  • Revelation 12:6 “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”

During these 1260 days the antichrist will rule most of the world.  The 10 ruling banking families of the world have been setting up a coming one world rule for decades.  They think they are going to set up a kingdom where they and their future families will rule absolutely forever with the antichrist.   They think they will succeed.  And perhaps they would if it were not for the divine intervention of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Yes, Jesus will intervene for the elect’s sake and destroy the wicked rule of the antichrist and the wicked world system that is now quickly taking shape.  After decades and centuries of working the world into a frenzy to accept a one world government, this wicked rule will end after only 1260 days of world wide dominion.  This short rule but most destructive rule is known in the Bible as the “great tribulation.”

The beginning of this 1260 period of time is defined in Matthew 24: 15-21.  It begins when the antichrist sets up the abomination at the holy site.  Most likely the “holy site” is the place where the temple (known by Daniel as the “sanctuary”) on Mount Moriah is built in the city of Jerusalem.  The antichrist’s rule at Jerusalem ends when the holy site is cleansed of the abomination that is set up.  The antichrist troops will be hurrying to their destruction as they really think they can take down the true Christ.  Soon after 1260 days of wicked rule, the armies of the antichrist will be totally destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ.

How do these 1260 days relate to the 2300, 1290, and 1335 days defined in the book Daniel?

After 1010 days of daily sacrifice, the antichrist armies will take over the “holy site” and will stop the sacrifice.  30 days later the antichrist will set up his abomination at the holy site of the sanctuary.  The following 1260 days is part of the 1290 days in which the “sanctuary” remains desecrated.   The 30 days and 1260 days combined add to 1290 days which is the total time the “sanctuary” will be trodden under foot by the antichrist. This is shown in the simple addition equation below:

30 days wait + 1260 days of great tribulation =  1290 total days the sanctuary is desecrated

At the end of the 1290 days of the sanctuary being desecrated,  the sanctuary will be cleansed.  This day also marks the end of the antichrist’s world rule.  45 days later, those who remain will be blessed.

Considering all 4 time periods: 2300 days, 1290 days, 1335 days, and 1260 days the below shows a daily countdown of what is coming:

End Time Daily Countdown

  • Day 1:  The daily sacrifice begins at the temple or “sanctuary” site.
  • Day 1 –  Day 1010:  The daily sacrifice is performed each day at the “sanctuary”
  • Day 1011:  The antichrist stops the daily sacrifice.
  • Day 1040:  The antichrist sets up his abomination at the site of the sanctuary.  This marks the beginning of the great tribulation.  The saints flee from Judea into the mountains.  The two prophets begin to prophesy.
  • Day  1040 –  Day 2300:  The antichrist rules most of the earth.  This time is known as the great tribulation.  It lasts for 1260 days.
  • Day 2301: The “sanctuary” is cleansed.
  • Day 2301 – Day 2345 the armies of the antichrist are destroyed.
  • Day 2345:  Those still alive are blessed.

In the writing of these 4 e-mails[posts] I have attempted to the best of my ability to be accurate in interpreting the Bible.  You will find their content to be helpful to know what is coming from the day the daily sacrifice begins.  That day may not be too far away.

Always go the Heavenly Father for guidance and clarification of anything you think you should or should not do regarding end time events.
