Prophecy’s Extra Oil Update: Cars, Swords, 6-Plagues, Economy

©copyright 2009 Bonita M Quesinberry

This week’s prophetic signs update is longer than previous weeks, due to events moving incredibly faster each day since the last: this past week was almost overwhelming with increased activity of both the signs of Christ’s return and the effects of God’s first six vials of the seven plagues, which pouring out began in 1991. Be prepared, my people, be prepared, kind and patient; though, it will not be easy. Time is of the essence.

Last Sunday, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria hosted guests Joshua Cooper Ramo, author of “Age of the Unthinkable,” and Niall Ferguson, author of “The Ascent of Money,” (perhaps it should have been entitled “The Descent of Money”). The two men commented on the economic crisis; followed by Henry Kissinger, 1973 Nobel Peace Prize recipient for his work at ending the Viet Nam war and Secretary of State under the administrations of Nixon and Ford. Kissinger offered opinion on the North Korean nuclear missiles issue.

Kissinger stated that North Korea (NK) could easily collapse if it were to give up nuclear weapons of mass destruction (WMD); yet, to maintain them would require NK to give security assurances to China, Russia, South Korea along with America and, additionally, NK should not have to worry about a US military attack. To give up their WMDs could cause China to view North Korea as impotent, an untenable situation. He went on to say that to believe NK would not use the weapons is an illusion. Further, and contrary to NK’s assumption, they will not be able to get the US to ally with NK against China.

The US stated that China needs to adopt the policy of “having global responsibility” but this is uniquely an American idea based on a desire to form a US/China “one world power.” Kissinger added, “North Korea should be solely a test for China, just as Iran should be for Russia;” — the US ought to stay out of both. Yesterday, it was announced that NK and SK are scheduled to hold a rare meeting, the purpose unstated.

Zakaria guests Ramo and Cooper were in agreement that economic recovery by year’s end is wishful thinking, advising people to take with a grain of salt the word of government economists predicting a quick reversal; such a turn around based on the assumption that this calamity, like past recessions, is based on typical economic cycles: previously every 5 years then 7 and finally about every 10 years (2001-2010 would conclude a ten year cycle). Ramo and Cooper predict “no turn-around by employing either old economic models or by borrowing money nor by expending bail-out funds.” “Those who forget history make bad economic choices,” said Naill. Indeed, God agrees!

Many citizens feel safe with US Bonds, but Niall stated deep trouble for them, inasmuch as the US Bond market has steadily dropped in the past year; mostly due to Uncle Sam being unable to finance its debts at a low enough interest— thus, it will not be able to pay holders the interest and principal due on mature or maturing bonds.

On the global front, Ramo stated, “Since 2001, China has been in ‘shock and awe’ of their own dependence on American economy,” brought to light by 9/11 and our quickly following economic collapse. Niall added, “China is losing patience with America’s disaster and the continued Middle-East wars. The United States [is beginning to] feel like an empire on the wane.” The US could be compared to the ancient Roman empire. For these reasons, China is making huge political changes to something very much more complex: what this might mean to the US is unknown.

In other news, the fall of America’s automobile empire has not ‘just’ happened. Contrarily, it has been happening for a number of years. “The Big Three,” Ford and GM and Chrysler— the latter of whom invented car loans— became fat and rich by producing quality and, at the industry peak, employed over 600,000 auto workers nationwide: which literally created middle-income America. Unfortunately, three things kicked off their slow decline: 1) declining quality; 2) did not see cheaper, more fuel-efficient foreign vehicles, especially Japanese, coming their way— no foresight, as it were; and, 3) encouraged people to purchase above their means resulting in bad loans. Last year saw over 400,000 auto workers in lay-off and they aren’t done yet.

While the industry’s quality has improved, they are working on but have not achieved true fuel efficiency. Alas, the latter will result in higher auto prices, which is and will be out of most people’s reach. Despite all efforts to achieve reorganizing by use of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and Uncle Sam’s 16.9 billion dollar auto bailout for a price of a 30 billion dollar stock ownership of the industry, it will never really recover— because they will not be able to pay back bailout monies or buy back the 60% ownership.

With 2900 dealerships closed since last year to date, Chrysler set to close 789, and GM planning to close 2100 along with discontinuing several of its popular auto lines, which closes the related production plants— the Hummer being one, ironically just bought by China and the Saturn bought by Penske. It would seem the foreign market might become this nation’s auto mogul, at least until America’s utter collapse— foreign markets cannot aid recovery. It would be temporary at best, because collapse will be global. It is written.

Bankruptcy not only cancels out unsecured debts for the “Big 3” empire but the court also treats existing  auto-malfunction injury lawsuits as unsecured debts; thus, the plaintiffs will be left high and dry regarding ongoing medical expenses plus punitive damages. In the civilian arena, the last year has seen an extraordinary increase in bankruptcy filings; new filings expected to add another 1.5 million by the end of 2009.

“Live by the sword, die by the sword,” so saith the Lord. “Wars and rumors of wars” of wheresoever and whatsoever nature. Battles this past week in the Middle East and Israel as well as other countries resulted in numerous deaths; sadly, the largest civilian toll was in Sri Lanka: over 20,000. The wars to watch, relevant to Revelation’s prophecy, are strictly in the Middle East: Israel— who just staged the largest war drill in history— Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc. Despite President Bush’s declaration in 1991 that Desert Storm was over and won, I had simultaneously warned, rather not I but the Lord, that they would not and will not end until Christ returns— Middle East wars have continued unabated.

The Middle East is referenced by one Revelation scripture as “Armageddon,” a location rather than the “battle between good and evil:” The Old Testament fills in the blanks, “They gather untimely, for they will not do battle with me; rather, they battle one another.” As opposed to the Biblical location of Armageddon defined above, the actual battle between evil and God will take place in the Valley of Jehosephat, outside Jerusalem’s Dung gate where God calls evil to battle: His time of battle to be 3 months after we return to earth, from a 1000 year heavenly reign, for the second resurrection and utter destruction of the wicked.

As for “wars and rumors of wars” in the world, those like a teeter-totter will flair up, die down and flair up again; but, the Middle East wars will go silent, sort of a battle pause, only when heaven goes silent just before Christ takes up His sheep. Behind Him, the seventh vial is poured out. Recent polls showed 78% of Muslims view the US unfavorably, 14% favorably, and 8% undecided: let us pray that President Obama truly changed their view with his excellent speech in Egypt, which by the way was received overwhelming well except by US Republicans. Unusual fighting, resulting in over 40 deaths, was reported along our US/Mexico border at El Paso, Texas. It is ongoing.

Battles are now hitting close to home and worsening due to fear and panic over unemployment and hunger. A report this week revealed 5 States with the highest unemployment rates ranging from 15 to 26.9% — in order of severity: California, Arizona, Michigan, Oregon, and Louisiana. My son-in-law, an Oregon journeyman electrician, has been on layoff for seven months (Nov. 2008) with no offers in sight. To his detriment, Oregon is a union State; therefore, John must be on a list with others and can apply for a job that comes up only if he is next in line. I feel that unions need to be abolished in this economic climate, rather than keep people from working because of specific and unrealistic terms for union members.

Washington State reported in at 9.7% unemployed; this was increased by a statement regarding “under unemployed,” which adds people who have given up and are no longer looking for work and those who have found part-time unrelated jobs, much of these at minimum wage: raising the State-wide percentage to 16.9% with an added 24% of teens unemployed and 75% of 2009 college graduates unable to utilize their degrees. I suspect the above 5 States’ rates, as well as all other States, would be much higher percentages if they included the “under unemployed.”

Unemployment rates in the remaining States will continue to rise. Texas, thus far, has been the least hit, both in unemployment and housing devaluation, but it cannot escape altogether what is coming. A new report this past week showed a dramatic slow in rising unemployment; however, we can look for a sudden surge via automakers as well as other types of commerce. A friend in England called Wednesday, advising of their unemployed  rates being equally dramatic. Britons are in a rage, demanding change; the last phase of grief of which our people were advised early in this crisis.

Last Sunday in Kansas, an anti-abortion protestor shot and killed Dr. George Tiller where he was ushering in his Lutheran church. Dr. Tiller provided controversial late-term abortions through a local abortion clinic. Members said the shooter was not a church member, but they recognized him as a protestor: arrested later Sunday, since charged with first-degree murder, bail 5 million dollars. Dr. Tiller: a father and grandfather.

God judges abortion by the sixth Commandment, murder; albeit, on the other side of this coin we all are God-endowed with freedom of choice. I agree that we, as Christ’s sheep, must stand for God’s morality, thus the pro-lifer committed murder. He did not stand for God’s values but, obviously, neither did Dr. Tiller, a professed Christian— both acted in confusion— otherwise, neither man could have violated “Thou shalt not kill.”

Which is worse— Dr. Tiller and his shooter or Reverend Cribbs, Church of Christ at San Moreno, California? On Tuesday Cribbs aired his stand for the right of gays/lesbians to marry, publicly vowing to perform no heterosexual marriages until homosexuals can marry— Cribbs stated his premise of “equality in love.” In either case, God’s love was and is not present. Neither case reflects His definition of love. In my opinion, Rev. Cribbs is the worse of two evils; for he should testify only of God, Christ, and God’s Word, speaking and standing for only God’s Truth while warning sinners by that Truth. For pity sake, what have we to do with evil! One “sign of the times” Christ spoke of, “Beware the Pharisees, pastors and theologians and lawyers; they speak for lusts of the world.”

So saith the Lord, “Not one sin is greater than another.” Sin is sin is sin and is punishable by death. We cannot enforce morality upon anyone except self and our minor children, for not even God enforces. He teaches and tells us what HE will do in the end to all who do not comply with His Law— key word here is “in the end” comes retribution, only by God Himself. Bottom line: we are to teach God’s way and warn those in noncompliance. It is NOT our job, certainly, to execute capital punishment.

Be wary, for there will be many killings that are so senseless as to be unbelievable; such as the one reported Wednesday of a British soccer fan attending a game and who was shot for “singing too much.” Imagine God’s prophets and Christ’s sheep being killed for speaking God’s Truth: it’s just around the corner, for we live in the age where only lies are acceptable and win disputes. Nevertheless, we are bound to speak God’s Truth as a warning. Personally, I shall stand very still, spread my arms wide, and say, “Take your best shot, for Christ shall raise me up again.” Fear is of the Devil and I have none.

Tuesday began with WHO raising incidents of Swine Flu to a phase 6 pandemic. Until now not reported, there is a worsening Cholera crisis in Zimbabwe; a disease thought long ago eradicated. Do not be alarmed by all these resurrected and new bacteria/viruses: they all are from the same angel’s vial. 

A documentary this week revealed 5 incidents in earth’s existence where many life forms were rendered extinct, including entire civilizations. The culprits were cited as: meteors, volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, and weather elements such as hurricanes and tornados— all natural elements. “Earth is critically close to utter extinction, for the first time due to the largest of species: mankind.” As Christ’s sheep, we already knew this was coming.

The ever-growing hole in earth’s ozone allows the sun’s immense heat and rays to “scorch men”: another worsening plague. A report revealed our oceans having increased in acid content by 30 percent— a time-lapse film of vacated shells were dissolved to nothing in a matter of a few days. Add to that acid the red tides, extremely deadly organisms, plus man’s ocean-dumped waste and it becomes clear why a huge number of whales, apparently several pods, of varying ages washed ashore last week. Despite efforts, all died. The plague: “Turn the world’s waters to blood like that of a dead man,” meaning contaminated, toxic, deadly, will be “its oceans and seas, rivers and lakes, wells and containers of water,” such as water company storage tanks.

I finished reading BIND UP THE TESTIMONY, SEAL THE LAW, the wholly Biblical and spiritual interpretation of The Revelation—written in 1998, published in 2003. Its last two chapters begin with our 1000 years reign in heaven, followed by our return for the second resurrection of the wicked for destruction then earth’s regeneration. Those two chapters are exceedingly encouraging and provide so much clarity as to why events are what they are during this Laodicea age. Again, I urge everyone to read the “Laodicea” chapter for a better spiritual understanding of where the world is today, then the last two chapters for encouragement plus the strength to “stand and continue to stand.”

I still recommend homeowners to sell while they can get some of their money back; in fact, cash out all investments: stocks, bonds, real property, etc. Values of all “life-blood” commodities WILL fall to zero: oil, housing, food, money, clothing. Even precious metals will become worthless. This applies to the sheep worldwide, for it is a global plague bringing about total collapse of global economy. Adding fuel to this monetary fire are this nation’s States being set to increase State taxes by 24 billion dollars.

Even government officials are affected by the dramatically declining housing market: our US Treasury Secretary, who purchased his 1.6 million dollar New York home for more than asking price in a bidding war, cannot sell it for 1.5 million. He currently rents it out for $7,500 per month: annual property taxes are about $27,000 plus insurance. Sadly, the American dollar already is worth less than European Euros; the fact of which this nation is unaccustomed. God said, “Owe no man.” Time is short: comply with His directive.

To keep up with Biblical signs, Christ’s sheep are urged to not only watch the clouds but also local and world news reports as well as current documentaries covering the first six plagues, do research or get your own copy of “Bind Up the Testimony, Seal the Law.” Buy it “used” through Amazon.com, because used is really a new at a very low price. Read the reviews below this article.

“The dregs of God’s wrath” are fast reaching maximum potency, yet most Christians avoid “doom and gloom” news. How can you recognize the signs, the extra oil of preparedness, by burying your head in the sand? To do so is to be left behind dead.

REMEMBER Revelation’s three affirmations about the two keys required to enter heaven: “Those who have the faith of and in Jesus, AND obey God’s Commandments.” So, read Exodus c.20 and Deuteronomy c.5 to confirm compliance with each of God’s perpetual Laws; “which stand forever and ever, even in the new earth and new heavens.” Many may believe they are in compliance but should take care to understand the fourth precept; for it is this most critical one the majority consistently violates.

Another book most helpful to understanding how to comply with God is “TRUTH GATHERING,” an exhaustive AKJV Topical Bible covering all critical-to-salvation subjects: there is no another available in the world that is exhaustive; and, as we know, we are to take God’s “every” word. It also can be obtained as “used” from Amazon.com—

  1. Simply, “progress”, so-called, is destroying the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Hope, Grace, Miracles, Faith, etc.) ;-(

    Postings have been made at TheDestructionOfTheEarth.Wordpress.com concerning such destruction and perversion and also concerning The Creator’s(G-D, Father) promise that HE will “destroy those who destroy the earth(HIS Creation)!” (Rev11:18c)

    Yet there is a Living, Lively Hope!

    However, such Hope is not for that which is of the earth, earthly and fleshly, but there is a Living, Lively Hope for that which is Spirit, Heavenly and Spiritual.

    Hope for that which is Spirit is Alive because “progress”, which is the product of mankind’s “imag”ination, can pervert, yet not destroy that which is Spirit! For that which is Spirit is Real, and that which is Real is Forever!

    So no matter how perverse this world’s systems of religion become, that which is Spirit can only be abused and perverted, not destroyed!

    That which is Spirit is Eternal…….

    As for that which is called “religion”.

    “Pure religion and undefiled before G-D The Father(Creator) is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world.” (James 1:27)

    Simply, every other religion is impure and defiled!

    As stated previously, “that which is called “”progress” is of mankind’s “imag”ination and can pervert, yet not destroy, that which is Spirit”, and so it is that this world, and it’s systems of religion, have their version of “Light”, which can be turned on and off;

    Their version of “Truth”, which is of the “imag”ination;

    Their version of “Love”, which should be called lust;

    Their version of “Peace”, which needs be enforced;

    Their version of “Hope”, which is but a desire for temporal “things”;

    Their version of “Faith”, which is powerless;

    Their version of “Grace”, which is the liberty to “do your own thing”;

    And sadly, the favorite color of this world’s religion is gray ;-(

    So come out of the shadows! And as is said by many, “Get Real”!

    Once again, “only that which is Spirit is Real, and only that which is Real is Forever”!

    Hope is there would be those who “see” that The Life is in and of The Spirit. Those who “see” will no longer have their portion with the multitudes who are destroying the earth(and, air, water, creatures, vegetation) and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Hope, Faith, Grace, etc.) ;-(

    Simply, each breath(Spirit) you take is a revelation of The Source of Life.

    And “A Simple and Spiritual Life is the only Life that will survive!”

    Forever…….

    So “set your affections on Heavenly things” and be not of those “whose god is their bellies because they mind earthly things”. Be not of those who “love this world and it’s things” and who are “progress”ively destroying the earth(land, air, water, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which is Spirit(Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Hope, Faith, Grace, etc.)…….

    Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this world and it’s systems of religion, for “The WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one” (1John5:19) indeed and Truth…….

    Truth is never ending……. TheDestructionOfTheEarth.Wordpress.Com

    • Thank you, Francisco, for the comments. Indeed, Satan is the temporary ruler of this world, but his reign is about to end and he knows it. Praise the Lord, Jesus is ready to come through the door to get us out of this mess. 🙂

      Much love in Christ, BonnieQ
