These two talk-show enthusiasts may not have the whole picture exactly right, according to Bible prophecy (they need another copy of The Great Controversy now), but they do have one thing in common that is biblically correct--that Pope Francis is an agent of the devil and his goal is to deceive the whole world. The Bible says: "And they worshipped the dragon [Satan] which gave power unto the beast [the papacy]: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies" (Rev. 13:3, 4).
The signs are all around us that a time of trouble is imminent. Recent news headlines paint a picture most alarming of financial unrest, sickening immorality, a new world order, and unprecedented military exercises (Jade Helm 15) in America starting July 15. Here are some of the headlines: "Stock market panic in China", "Oregon allows 15-year-olds to have state-subsidized sex change without parental consent", "Pope Calls for a New World Order," and "Texans organize 'Operation Counter Jade Helm' to keep an eye on federal troops". What exactly is Jade Helm 15?
Jade Helm 15 is the largest domestic military exercise ever held on US soil. It will bring together over 1,000 members from the nation's elite forces, including Green Berets, Special Ops from the Navy and Marines, and SEALS. The sweeping operation, according to the Pentagon, will give soldiers an opportunity to practice 'unconventional warfare.'
There are many theories being promoted on Jade Helm 15 on youtube, Facebook, and the media. Some of the "conspiracy theorists" boldly suggest that Pope Francis is behind the operation.
Whether that is true or not, doesn't change the fact that many respected politicians are concerned. One news report said the Texas Governor is concerned and citizens are coordinating surveillance teams to
Another present-truth advocate writes: "Jade Helm will use ABI, Activity Based Intelligence, and Human Domain Analytics to Master the Human Domain--that's you as an individual. ABI means that they will collect and analyze all the data they can on you to see what your activities will tell them about whether you are hostile to the Image or 'permissive' to the image. ... This rings many bells and flashes red lights to those who have watched [the late] Jim Arrabito's Behind the Door, where he reveals that Rome Has every person color coded from birth regarding their stance toward Rome. The Red list and the Blue list. Now these colors will be assigned to ever person, every religion, every group, every state, every tribe, every chief, using the incredible dragnet of intelligence which has now made quantum leaps and will be applied during Jade Helm 15" (Cherith Chronical, May-June 2015).
Other theories that have recently become popular on the internet and news are the following:
JADE HELM & WHY Russian Navy Armada is Ordered To Coast Of Texas For "Liberation Exercise"
Russia Plots To Help Texas Secede From US While Almost 50% Of Texans Believe Jade Helm 15 Will Bring Gun Confiscation And Martial Law
"The main point of this news actually comes to us from Politico Magazine and might help to explain Jade Helm 15 in its entirety. With this story in the New York Magazine telling us that according to a new poll, 44% of Texans believe that the US government will be declaring martial law during Jade Helm 15 while 43% believe that they will be doing gun confiscations across the state, Politico ran a story just days ago telling us that Vladimir Putin has a very special interest in Texas, and he's got a plot in mind to HELP Texas secede. Talk about PAYBACK for the US secretly sending forces into the Ukraine to destabilize one of Russia's closest neighbors, Moscow's right wingers are teaming up with a band of Texas secessionists and if JH15 is any indication, Texans and much of America may soon get their martial law and gun confiscation if Politico's story is correct.
Then I found an article debunking the new's article above stating "this isn't the first time that the Texas Nationalistic Movement has been subject to tabloid-style rumors connecting Texas independence with the Kremlin. In 2013 an article began to make the rounds under the title "Putin Prepares To Arm Texas Separatists As Iran Orders 50,000 Troops To Syria" which accused the Kremlin of "arming of the TNM to wage war against the Obama regime." The article was rebuffed as pure tabloid fiction, but it seems that even Politico has lowered their standards to that of the Weekly World News."
While some theories abound that Jade Helm is a covert military exercise to collect data, identify and located actors and their networks, others are promoting the belief that there will be civil war starting in Texas and backed by the Russians and Vladamir Putin arming American hostiles and Mexican rebels. Youtube lists videos with many of theories including the following: "Jade Helm Update Mass Casualty Units have been Deployed", "Jade Helm is Training to Kill Americans who Resist", and "Jade Helm Update - Marshall Law Drills are Terrorizing Americans." Some see this as a false flag created by President Obama. Others say it is because Texas wants its gold back.
Then there are reports on the internet trying to calm the rising fears of Americans like the following: " MacDill Air Force Base, Florida - There are scores of rumors flying around about Jade Helm 15, a US Special Operations Command operation that will begin on July 15th in the Southwestern United States. It's time to separate reality from fiction. To start out it may be best to clarify what Jade Helm is not. It is not a precursor to martial law. It is not an operation designed to round up American citizens for FEMA camps. It is not a UN ordered invasion. The truth behind Jade Helm is much less conspiratorial, but much more interesting.
"After speaking to several former and active duty soldiers, The Fifth Column can say with almost certainty that Jade Helm is a massive Field Training Exercise (FTX) to enhance the SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) capabilities of American special operations troops."
Every person has a right to believe what he wants about Jade Helm 15, and it is not easy sorting through all the material that is available. But we may know soon enough which reports were reliable and which ones were not, because the exercises begin on July 15 and run through September 15, 2015. Days following Jade Helm, Jesuit Pope Francis will address the U.S. congress on September 24, 2015, the annual U.N. General Assembly of world leaders on Sept. 25, and take part in the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia on September 25 - 27, 2015. Exciting times we are living in. That is for certain.
As we wait to see what happens in the next three months, we should be preparing in several ways regardless. Whether Jade Helm 15 is the "big one" or not, more trouble will soon follow. The steps to enforce Sunday laws will be progressive, as we know from the Spirit of Prophecy.
We must plan in several ways: 1. First and foremost, we must learn to stand by faith and have a living experience with our Lord daily. Are you prepared to stand in the presence of a Holy God? 2. Immediately, if you have not done so already, move out of the large cities. Ideally, find homes in the country where you can grow food. Can you imagine trying to get out of Los Angeles or San Francisco if a natural disaster should occur or a terrorist attack? 3. It would be smart to be completely out of debt and to "owe no man anything" (Romans 13:8). 4. We should have ample food, shelter, and water in case of any emergency, as we approach the "little time of trouble." Energy will be valuable. Consider solar power as an option.
"Before the overflowing scourge shall come upon the dwellers of the earth, the Lord calls upon all who are Israelites indeed to prepare for that event. To parents He sends the warning cry: Gather your children into your own houses; gather them away from those who are disregarding the commandments of God, who are teaching and practicing evil. Get out of the large cities as fast as possible. Parents can secure small homes in the country, with land for cultivation, where they can have orchards and where they can raise vegetables and small fruits to take the place of flesh meat, which is so corrupting to the lifeblood coursing through the veins. On such places the children will not be surrounded with the corrupting influences of city life. God will help His people to find such homes outside of the cities" (AH 139, 140).
"The world over, cities are becoming hotbeds of vice. On every hand are the sights and sounds of evil. Everywhere are enticements to sensuality and dissipation. The tide of corruption and crime is continually swelling" (CL 6).
"The time is near when large cities will be swept away, and all should be warned of these coming judgments. Oh, that God's people had a sense of the impending destruction of thousands of cities now almost given to idolatry!" (AH 136).
At Modern Manna, we continue to to warn people of what is to soon take place not only in the United States, but in the world. Before I tell you the latest news, please read the following quote: "Through the two great errors, theimmortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome. The Protestants of the United Stateswill be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience" (GC 588).
Friends, Rome is on the move. From the quote above Protestants, with their spiritualistic beliefs of immortality of the soul as held in common with Catholics and most all other religions, will stretch their hands across the abyss to join hands with the Roman power. I believe it is spiritualism which puts teeth into the threefold union. "The miracle-working power manifested through Spiritualism will exert its influence against those who choose to obey God rather than men. Communications from the spirits will declare that God has sent them to convince the rejecters of Sunday of their error, affirming that the laws of the land should be obeyed as the law of God. They will lament the great wickedness in the world, and second the testimony of religious teachers, that the degraded state of morals is caused by thedesecration of Sunday. Great will be the indignation excited against all who refuse to accept their testimony" (GC88 591).
Soon demons will impersonate dead love ones, religious leaders, the apostles, and the Virgin Mary. Even Satan, in his crowning act of deception, will personate Christ saying He changed the 7th-day Sabbath (Saturday) to Sunday, just as Rome claims now. "The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air: 'Christ has come! Christ has come!' The people prostrate themselves in adoration before him, while he lifts up his hands and pronounces a blessing upon them, as Christ blessed His disciples when He was upon the earth. His voice is soft and subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then, in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed. He declares that those who persist in keeping holy the seventh day are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them with light and truth. This is the strong, almost overmastering delusion" (GC 624).
Beware, Beloved! The Pope is chumming the waters as evidenced by his new encyclical on climate control that promotes Sunday rest and concern for the world's poor. And he undoubtedly plans to further his agenda when he addresses Congress, the World meeting of Families, and to the United Nations come September. He is coming in through the side door.
The time is at hand,
