Storm Clouds Are Gathering

By John S. Torell

 

There is no question that someone in the World Government is guiding the world into a storm that will alter life as we know it now. The media drumbeat is whipping up fear as we are told about a famine, an oil crisis, a financial crisis, etc. At the same time, there have been selective judgments from God, like severe weather conditions destroying homes and farm crops in the United States and around the world. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama remind me of two moths attracted to the office of the presidency, but they don’t know that it’s a hot light that will destroy them. They are full of promises and expectations, deceiving the voters into believing that they will be able to deliver once they get into office.

Hillary Clinton Barack Obama George W. Bush

Whoever the next American president will be, he/she will face enormous problems for which there are no solutions. When George Bush leaves the office of president in January 2009, he will be leaving the biggest “train wreck” in the history of mankind. It is also possible that he will start a war with Iran before he is done as the president of the United States. What is going on?

THE JEWISH WORLD LEADERSHIP WANTS CLINTON AS PRESIDENT

The Jewish weekly newspaper, FORWARD, which was founded on April 22, 1897, carried the following headline on its March 28, 2008, front page:

Dozens of Jewish Super-Delegates May Hold Key to Democratic Race

Here is a quote from the beginning of this article: “According to a new survey conducted by the Forward, a disproportionately large share of the Democratic party’s super-delegates are Jewish. Many of them have declared their support for Hillary Clinton, accounting for more than 15% of her current backers.”

More than 70 Jewish super-delegates will attend the Democratic Convention in Denver. These American Jews represent almost 10% of the 800 super delegates. A Super Delegate can be an elected Democratic politician like a governor, congressman, senator or party official who is not elected in primaries and caucuses. Super Delegates do not represent the will of the voting people but the hierarchy of the Democratic Party. Let me now give another quote from Forward:

“If the Democratic presidential primary comes down to a photo finish, these Jewish insiders could play an outsized role in anointing a nominee at the party’s August convention. And it would be a history-making experience: Although Jews have long been considered a formidable voting bloc and have been over- represented among the country’s cadre of liberal activists and thinkers, they have only more recently become common as Democratic establishment insiders, with unprecedented numbers of both Jewish elected officials and party leaders.

“‘Politics in America has become a Jewish profession, just like the arts and the law,’ said Ira Forman, executive director of the National Jewish Democratic Council and the author of a book about Jews and American politics. ‘We now are overrepresented in all these areas.’

“The relative high number of Jews among super delegates highlights a larger political shift that has occurred in recent decades, according to Forman.”

Look at the following numbers: In 1950 there were 15 Jews elected to Congress, in 2006 that number had grown to 33. For the last 15 years the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has had three Jewish chairmen, Debra DeLee (Americans for Peace Now), Steve Grossman (Massachusetts based party activist) and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell; all three are current super delegates and backers of Clinton. The current chairman is former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who is married to an American Jewess and their children are being raised as Jews. Of the DNC’s nine national officers, three are Jewish.

In order to show the Christian community the power of these Jewish Americans and who they are, we are publishing a copy of the listing as it was published in the Forward newspaper.

THE JEWISH POWER BLOCK

Despite all the evidence presented over the years, the average American has not understood that Jewish people are different in that their loyalty is first to the Zionistic World Federation, the parent organization of the State of Israel. The war in Iraq is of utmost importance to the national security of Israel and no person will be elected unless they will tow the line of loyalty to Israel. This is why John McCain traveled to Israel, put on a yarmulke and prayed at the Wailing Wall. Israel is not going to allow any American President to pull the troops out of Iraq. Israel is even urging President Bush, hard, to launch an attack on Iran before he leaves office.

Know this: the Democratic Party has many Jews in its leadership but so does the Republican Party.

THE ENERGY CRISIS

As I was about to write this report, I made three phone calls to Europe to speak with friends in Sweden, Belgium and Germany. I do not trust the media and wanted to hear from people living in Europe as to what is happening there compared to what we are experiencing in the United States.

Let me begin sharing from Sweden. When I asked how much gasoline costs, my friend told me that the price was 13 Kronor per liter for regular unleaded which is equal to $7.84 per gallon. Gasoline prices have soared 15% in one year. Milk, butter, potatoes, bread and the basic food staples have all gone up in price and people are having a difficult time just to buy food. The people living on fixed income are really hurting. Then my friend shared something really scary with me. 

THE CROWD TAX (Trängselskatt)

Stockholm is the capitol of Sweden and their largest city. The government has now adopted a special tax on people driving into the center of the city during the day in order to keep out as many cars as possible and force people to use mass transit. Digital cameras are posted on all streets leading into the city so that every car is photographed and this is stored in a database. The resolution of the pictures is very high so that not only can the computer operator see the license plate but also the faces of the people in the vehicle. The government says these images will be stored for an indefinite time so the police will know the time and date of those who drive in and out of the city. The Swedish people have been told that this is for their safety to protect them from criminals and terrorists.

The government then sends out invoices based upon how much time you spent in the city. If they are not paid on time, penalties and interest accrue and the cost can rise to more than 2,000 kronor ($345) in just a few weeks.

My friend then told me this type of surveillance system was copied from the city of London. It is a known fact that no nation on earth is so heavily dotted by security cameras as is England.

He also told me that in the near future not only will all telephone calls and email in Sweden be monitored but they will also monitor all communication going in and out of Sweden to other countries. All this monitored traffic will be stored on a state database for five years in order to “hold down crime.” This means there will be no privacy in Sweden except if you meet a person face to face in the open air and make sure that no one is aiming a long distance camera and microphone at you. For those of us living in America, this should come as no surprise since the National Security Agency, telephone companies and the internet service providers have been doing this for years.

Things are not much better in Belgium with its capitol of Brussels, which is also the capitol of the European-Union. Gasoline in Belgium is now €1.30 per liter for regular gasoline ($7.23 per gallon). I heard the same report that food prices are continually rising and that people will have to lower their standard of living in order to survive.

My friend in Germany reported that the situation was pretty much the same as in Sweden and Belgium. Regular gasoline in Germany is €1.48 Euros per liter ($7.77 per gallon) and food prices are rising rapidly.

What most Americans have not realized is that the dollar has lost its value against all other currencies in the world by a whopping 31% and it is still falling. As I brought out in the April newsletter, oil prices are set in dollars, so exporters are demanding a higher price in order to offset the declining dollar. This puts further pressure on the American economy and depresses the dollar further.

INVESTORS AND SPECULATION

There are millions of private investors in the world, holding billions of dollars in cash. Together with government investment firms from China, Middle Eastern oil rich nations, Russia and a number of other rogue states like Iran and Venezuela are following the trail of profit at any cost. These people and governments do not care if people in the poor nations in the world are suffering and starving to death, they are intoxicated with power and wealth.

For the last 15 years, investors put their money into the housing market in the United States, stocks, bonds and commercial real estate. But this is a house of cards built upon speculation, and once it began to fold, the money was pulled out and invested in gold and commodities.

When an oil super tanker leaves the port at an oil producing country and begins its journey toward refineries in the industrial nations, the cargo can be sold many times while the ship is still at sea and each time the price of the oil on that ship will go up.

There is no way that nations like Bangladesh, Kenya, Indonesia, Congo, etc. can pay the speculators prices, thus, the commodities of food and oil will go to the nations who can afford to pay the inflated prices. Since there is no world enforcer in place, the super rich and the rogue nations are going to siphon up the money supplies and use it to purchase and invest more. The result will be starvation and riots in third world nations and a lower standard of living in the industrial nations.

While I am writing this article, crude oil is around $120 per barrel and the projection is that the price will be driven up to $200 per barrel. That will bring the price of regular gasoline in the United States to $8.00 per gallon. If this comes true, the American economy will collapse and there will be riots, looting and killing in the big cities. Only martial law can restore the calm, but with American troops overseas, it will take foreign troops to police America. This will pave the way for the World Government to declare that only a global government can deal with such global calamities.

THE RECREATIONAL INDUSTRY

The days of fast living will be over since there is no way the American middle class will be able to afford driving their big cars, going on vacation in their motor homes and riding their boats on the lakes. Millions of people in the recreation and sports industries will be out of work.

Workers will be forced to accept lower wages if they want to keep their jobs, and at the same time, things like housing, food and fuel will continue to rise.

The electronic industry with all the gadgets people used to be able to afford will be out of reach for the majority of the American people.

The recreational vehicle and boating industries will be hit very hard. Thousands of people will be laid off from their jobs at the factories, dealerships, parks and marinas and begin drawing unemployment benefits.

THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY

Millions of workers will be affected in the automobile industry that consists of not only the factories which produce vehicles but all the subcontractors who furnish things like tires, computers and radios etc. What is left of the steel industry in the United States will have to cut back production since the automakers are going to buy less steel for the next foreseeable future. It will also affect car dealerships, repair shops,  parts stores and suppliers. It will have a cumulative affect upon hundreds of thousands of workers all over the country.

THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY

Independent truckers are already being affected as many of them are forced out of business because they cannot afford the higher fuel costs. With less freight to move due to cut backs in production and sales, there will be layoffs in the big trucking firms, including companies like UPS, FedEx, etc. Even more people will be unemployed.

THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY

There have already been some small airlines that have gone out of business like Aloha Airline. There will be mergers to stay in business, but if the fuel cost keeps going up, some of the big airlines will not be able to survive. With more people out of work, there will be fewer people flying, and as the economy slows more, there will be even fewer passengers flying.

THE AMERICAN CONSUMERS

There is going to be a domino effect as more people are out of work, meaning that these people are not going to buy much, except food, fuel and the most necessary basic items. This will cause even more layoffs since less products are being sold and more workers will be laid off.

WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF THIS?

As I have stated on many occasions, God is judging the world; the sins of the unsaved people have reached such a level that God is going to deal with them harshly. But the strongest judgment is going to come upon the backslidden Church of Jesus Christ, which has become drunk upon money, fame and a lavish lifestyle. With salaries from $200,000 per year to more than a million dollars for the well known pastors of mega churches and the televangelists, God is fed up! This is not something new since He addressed this very issue some 2,700 years ago:

Amos 6:1-14  Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!  (2)  Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?  (3)  Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;  (4)  That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;  (5)  That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;  (6)  That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.  (7)  Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.  (8)  The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.  (9)  And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.  (10)  And a man's uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD.  (11)  For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts.  (12)  Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock:  (13)  Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?  (14)  But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.

As for our ministry we are going to heed this warning and do what Jesus told the church in Laodicea. Will you join us so that all of us can become part of the solution instead of being part of the problem?

Revelation 3:14-22  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;  (15)  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  (16)  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  (17)  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  (18)  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  (19)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.  (20)  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  (21)  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  (22)  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
