Koenigs perspectives on Bible prophecy and world issues Apr 2013

John Adams indicated that the American system of government is only possible for a moral people. That leaves out fools. Look around at the immorality that the majority of people in this country are now doing, supporting or enabling. America is becoming a nation of the fools, by the fools, and for the fools. This is the latest American reality show. Need I say any more on the state of our Union on April fools day 2013?


If you want an foreign example of a April fool, just look to North Korea. Their new young leader, Kim Jong Un, says that North Korea is at war with South Korea and the United States. He says he will now be targeting Washington DC, LA, and Austin Texas with his nukes.

Washington DC and LA are filled with progressive wimps that will just take verbal abuse from chubby N. Korean bullies, but I guess nobody told this Jong Un that you don’t mess with Texas!

They do not take kindly to that kind of talk down in Texas. They might send up Chuck Norris and the Texas Rangers and put a cowboy boot up the Jong Un’s chubby butt. Then he can brag to his worshipers about his dual rear a–hole capacity, and launch himself like a hot air balloon or better yet, just sit on it.

It just seems so convenient that all of a sudden N. Korea is stealing all the nuclear headlines while Iran is going for nuclear breakout behind the scenes. Tell me that this is not being orchestrated.

An official speech approved by the  Supreme leader of Iran said that the America empire will end in 2013. Meanwhile, the Obama administration will do nothing about the Iranian nuclear program until the next President of Iran is elected this summer. Israel has also been silenced until the election.

That field of dreams for a game changing Iranian President and new dialogue gives Iran a gift of at least six more months to continue their nuclear weapons breakout program. Has everyone forgot that the unelected Supreme leader and not the President actually calls the shots in Iran? He has not changed.

Its getting about time to do something about both of these foolish nations or other nations are going to realize that America cannot be counted on for their own security and then they will take matters in their own hands. If that happens, we probably are not going to like the way that the wars play out but we will get sucked into them anyway. If there is no real change by late summer in Iran, I can see Israel dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat by themselves if necessary by early this fall. A Sunni Shiite war also becomes likely.


This month will be the start of the Senate’s big push for new gun control legislation. We will be watching to see how the Republicans handle this. If they do not allow the bill to advance in the Senate at all, it might be all over shortly. I hope Republicans realize that it is not just the Second Amendment to the Constitution that is at stake here. The future of the whole Republican Party is at stake here. Many gun owners of America are not going to forget how their representatives voted on this issue. Not that they would be obeying any unconstitutional gun laws anyway.

What if gun owners simply stopped paying federal taxes until the federal government cuts out all this police state crap? We might give that some thought. Where would they get the money to pay the internal army that they would need to have to enforce their total surveillance society and their tyrannical laws? Of course, I mean after they rob your bank accounts and IRA’s. One has to wonder if Christians and Constitutional Patriots will be fool enough to continue to fund our own demise?

It’s not like we don’t know from history what happens to Christians after control freak tyrants take away the means for people to resist tyrants that will use any crimes against humanity to achieve their godless revolutionary end. It is not like our forefathers did not warn us and put the Second Amendment in the Constitution for just that reason. These collectivist globalist control freaks do not think much of American’s intelligence. Will Heartland America play the fool as the statist fascists expect or will we prove them wrong?

Obviously, if you look at the fools that American voters put in office and you look at what other seemingly intelligent people did in Germany, Russia and China, you do have to wonder if any future liberty is possible before the second coming. The pastors today will not even warn and direct the sheep in the right direction. Many of these hirelings sound like wolves themselves.

Some people in America actually believe that Jim Carrey, Sean Penn, Harry Belafonte, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and ilk have something worthwhile to say. That is a scary thought. The marxist power elite do not call these narcissistic media stars useful idiots for nothing.


The Pope is living up to expectations of an ecumenical Pope wanting to unite Roman Catholicism with other daughters of Beelzebub. Pope Francis believes that an example of Jesus washing the feet of His disciples is washing the feet of convicts and Muslims. A cartoonist could not create a more fitting real life caricature that could deceive the poor and unite religion through a show of false humility and Maryology.

I am sure Francis will be a very popular Pope in the world if he survives long enough. However, remember Jesus said the world would hate true followers of Him (John 15:19). Obviously then, following Christ does not lead to one being a big hit with the world. Someone ought to tell the Protestants that are also so busy trying to conform to the world that fact as well.


The Supreme Court is having hearings on homosexual marriage issues. It does not matter what they decide because God is the ultimate authority over His creation. God already decided that homosexual activity is an abomination (Lev 20:13). I Like how Dave Daubenmire put it in his very astute article.

God grants rights, as clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence, and He granted no right to sodomy. Our Creator granted us the right to do right. There is no God-given right to do wrong.

That right, the right to do wrong, must be granted by the usurpers in the Supreme Court. They have granted rights that they have no right to grant. If they declare a “right” to marry to those who identify only by the manner in which they use choose to use their genitalia, they have violated not only the law of nature, but nature’s God. Homosexual sodomy will never be lawful.

The judges will be reprobates and will have issued a reprobate order. They are, as the Scriptures would call them, workers of evil. Six of the judges claim Christianity as their religion of choice. No Christian can legalize what God has called abominable.

In a recent article, I suggested that Cyprus would have to come up with another way to pay its EU debts other than through robbing wealthy Russians that had deposits in their banks. Why then did Putin sign off on the big Cyprus bank robbery?

What most people do not know is that while the banks in Cyprus were closed their branch banks in Russia and London remained open. The mega rich got their money out. That is why less wealthy people and the middle class in Cyprus will now lose 60 to 80 percent of their deposits.

The bottom line is that the billionaires of the world have the game rigged. They get insider information or special deals from government. While many of them support redistributing the wealth they really mean redistributing the wealth from the middle class to the lower class. The billionaires of the world are heaping up more and more treasure for the last days just as James 5 said they would just before the Lord’s return.

1   Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.2  Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.3  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.4  Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.5  Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.6  Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.8  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.


Last month brought more visits to this Blog than any other month since I created it about six years ago.  I have to thank the St. Malachy prophecy and the new Pope for that spike in traffic. It also was a record for the whole website in some but not all statistical categories.

I do need to remind visitors that the place for off topic comments is on these monthly perspectives newsletters. The monthly perspectives are not likely to get into top rankings in search engines and they generally are only read for a short season. Therefore, comments are not even limited to the monthly perspectives that I bring up on my monthly perspectives newsletter.

Also, I do have an email address. But, keep in mind that I do not have the time for endless theology arguments or a chat session.


Post Script.

Dave Hunt went to be with the Lord On April 5, 2013. He was one of the most influential teachers in my life. Dave’s great voice of discernment achieved by checking out all teachings against what the scripture actually says will be greatly missed. Here is an obituary up by T.A. McMahon.

  1. Don,

    “What if gun owners simply stopped paying federal taxes until the federal government cuts out all this police state crap? We might give that some thought. Where would they get the money to pay the internal army that they would need to have to enforce their total surveillance society and their tyrannical laws?”

    Indeed, some sort of Civil Disobedience is called for. Yours is an enticing idea, and would feel most gratifying . . . if you could somehow convince a hundred million gun owners to go along with it. Unfortunately, I doubt there’s enough intestinal fortitude left in America to pull it off.

    To answer your question as to where the government would get the money? Simple. They would just print what they need. Never mind that the stuff whirling out of the presses is essentially worthless paper(well, cloth, to be precise), hastening our mad tumble into third world territory. But then, a hard landing for America seems to be part of the plot line to the book of Revelation.

    Hold tight, the ride gets bumpy from here on.

  2. Doug,

    They are already creating what they need. Nobody is really buying much new US debt other than the Federal Reserve. They just create more money to buy the debt. Even so, that only works as long as they can show that the government will have future income to make the dollar worth something or else everyone will be a dumping the dollar for whatever then can get. That will happen if they continue on the present course anyway.

    I do agree that as long as people have savings accounts and retirement funds in dollars they are not going to withhold taxes and crash the dollar and thus lose their life savings. Even so, I am assuming that it will not be long before government robs these accounts and replaces them with worthless IOU’s at best. At that point, why continue to enable a government that will also enable our own demise?

    Notice what is happening in Cyprus. Then watch what will happen in Argentina, Greece, Italy, Spain, Japan etc. It will happen here at some point as well.

  3. Don, what Bible do you read or quote from? Is it the KJV? I’m just curious. Even though I’m saved, I’m human and what’s happening is still frightening. Since the tech bubble of the late 90’s, our demise has accelerated along with the stupidity, ignorance, and complacency of this country.

  4. I agree, Don, it will happen here one day. When it does, maybe people will open their eyes and finally take back the government — although I doubt the government will permit that. When the raiding of bank accounts begins, you can bet the powers that exist at that time will make certain the people are properly disarmed. I don’t know what the gun laws are in Cyprus, but I suspect the people there are already disarmed.

    With the interest rates as low as they are now, I wonder if a “glass bank” wouldn’t be a smarter place to keep some of your savings?

  5. Wars and rumours of war is such a reality. We have $$$ wars, political wars, cyber war, terrorist wars, civil wars, moral/ legal battles, etc etc.
    just read how China and Austrailia are now going to trade directly cutting the US currency out of the picture.

    Seems ripe for the horsemen doesn’t it.

  6. Don, Would you advise taking money out of the bank before we’re robbed of it? I’m not connected to the world of the rich, but I need what I have. It’s been on my mind for awhile. Also, I keep watch on govenor Perry and so far he hasn’t caved in to the liberal agenda. I’d like to add a little humor here. I recently saw that our ‘Welcome To Texas’ sign had a few additions. ‘Our people carry concealed weapons. If you kill us we’ll kill you back. We love gunfights. We have 180 prisons. Enjoy your stay.’ (lol)

  7. Hi Caitlin,

    I am not going to advise people what to do with their money. People are going to have to live with their own financial decisions. Nothing is without risk this side of eternity.

  8. Don and All,

    I don’t understand how me/we/them/anyone can just decide to stop paying federal taxes…unless one is an independent contractor or self employed which is not the case for the majority. Perhaps I’m just misinformed but I don’t understand how one can just decide that with the current corporate payroll structure the way it is.

    Caitlin, I do like your “Welcome To Texas” sign : )

  9. “It just seems so convenient that all of a sudden N. Korea is stealing all the nuclear headlines while Iran is going for nuclear breakout behind the scenes. Tell me that this is not being orchestrated.” I totally agree with you Don, this most likely is being used and a smoke screen to hide the real intent of what is coming.

    George Soros has bought Marlin Firearm and is shutting it down. See: http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/freedom.asp some other companies he has purchased through the “Freedom Group” are: Bushmaster, Remington, DPMS Panther Arms, Dakota Arms, H&R, LC Smith, Parker…You see the point. Also remember Soros was one of the biggest contributors to the Obama Campaign.

    As for the Pope I’m SURE he will continue with the deception of the Gospel. If people would just get their Bibles out, read them, research what is not clear and prey for understanding!

    I’ve send numerous emails to Sen. Claire McCasskill concerning the homosexual marriage issue and it has proved to be for nothing. She at one time in recent past was against this but now seems to be flavor of the month, and like most politicians chooses popularity and money over Gods law.

    I just trust in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but also try to plan for the rocky road ahead. As God never promised a rose garden at all times I am an active prepper and will continue to prepare for hard times coming.

    God Bless You Don…Keep up the wonderful work your doing!

  10. Mark,

    I do not know where you get that George Soros has bought Marlin Firearm or any of the others through the Freedom Group. According to the link that you provided the email that is going around about this is false. Soros has no connection to this conservative group.

  11. I feel like I’m playing The Waiting Game. Something is going to happen but I’m not sure exactly what, when, or from where. This morning the tornado sirens went off. It’s a clear day so I knew it was a test but then I thought with all the talk going on about toasting us what’s the possibility of it being an air raid warning? Maybe not this time but soon. “So what’s your plan?” I asked myself. Turns out I didn’t have one. That prompted me to find out what to do in case of nuclear attack. The information was good except a lot of it isn’t feasible in my circumstances. So what now? If anyone is tempted to remind me to trust God, I do, but what He knows I can bear and what I want to bear are two different things. Yep.

  12. Don,
    When I read Proverbs 28:2 ” When there is moral rot within a nation, it’s government topples easily.” it reminded me of your article on April’s fool day.

  13. Hi Don,
    Since this is the time of month where you permit drifting off into different topics, I thought I’d bring up one that’s been a concern of mine for several years now. I’ve done some research, but can fine nothing but speculation on the phenomenon known as Chemtrails. Here in Colorado, the day will start with a bright blue sky, and then the government sends up their airplanes and begins spraying their chemicals. Within a couple hours, the sky is gray. It’s particularly onerous in Colorado Springs. I’ve heard it’s some sort of mixture of aluminum and other chemicals. The project seems very hush-hush, and therefore engenders loads of conspiracy theories. One Ft. Carson soldier admitted to a friend of ours that yes, the government is doing this, but it’s purpose is to acclimate the people in case of chemical warfare. Obviously, another GI being lied to. Is the government purposefully poisoning us? Are they trying to change the weather? Is it part of some weapons program? Maybe you or one of your readers knows more about this?

    Do you experience much or any of this out there in the Ozarks?

  14. Doug,

    These rumors have going on for twenty years. No one can keep some program like that secret for that long. I have lived in Virgina, Nevada, Missouri, Arizona and New York State, during that time and I never seen any contrails that cannot be explained by jet exhaust.

    If atmospheric conditions are right one jet can spread a contrail across a third of the sky. I remember seeing the sky become almost overcast forty years ago just from jet traffic. Besides, contrails form best when the sky is also becoming overcast with naturally occurring cirrus cloud ice crystals. I can see that happening a lot on the down slopes of the Rockies in late afternoon.

    I do not give these claims any credence. One soldier might say anything about anything. They do not have access to Top Secret “need to know information” just because they are in the military, 99.9 percent of them read the same stuff that you do.

    The government is not trying to poison us and it’s not a weapons program. Believe it or not most of the government is us. People in the military and people that work for the government come and go.

    There probably are some weather and other experiments going on but that is nothing new. There could be spraying going on in various places for various reasons but I would not lose sleep over it. If there was really something diabolical going on there would be plenty of whistle blowers with plenty of creditable evidence, not third hand information that never can be verified.

    Chemical warfare is way overblown anyway. It is much too difficult to use on a large scale.
