Koenig’s perspectives on Bible prophecy and world issues Dec 2012

On December 21, 2012 · 27 Comments

Obviously the world did not end on Dec 21, 2012. Once again the prophets of Baal were wrong. Researchers can analyze every pagan prophecy that exists anywhere and they still will not know anything about the timing of future events.

Everything Christians need to know about the future is already written in the Christian Bible. The Lord God does not reveal the future through ancient pagan writings, or through modern men and woman who learned to tap into the occult, or through those that hear the imaginations of their own minds and claim that the message came from Him.

It appears that we will be here for a while longer, so let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas and an interesting New Year that is full of joy in Christ.


The rebels in Syria are getting ready for a major new offensive. Will this action make Assad and his supporters use their chemical weapons and get NATO directly involved in the war? That is still anyone’s guess. In any case, someone besides the Syrian’s are going to have to secure those WMD.

Iran is not happy about Assad losing ground, or Americans with missiles being on the Turkish border. I read that Iran has sent trained teams into some NATO countries to carry out terrorism in response. I am not sure about the reliability of the source, but we will not have long to find out. If this turns out to be true, it might not be such a happy new year in Europe but they may finally wake up about the Iranian and Islamic threat.

Just about all sources that are following the Iranian nuclear program are saying that something will have to be done in 2013 to stop the Iranian nuclear weapons program. I believe our government has set a mid summer deadline. It is going to be a very intrusting year in the Middle East.


It is pretty certain that those of us that pay taxes will see higher taxes in 2013. At this point, nobody has a clue when any tax bill will pass or what will be in the bill if it does pass. The only thing the IRS can do if nothing is passed in the next 10 days, is to go back to the higher tax rates that existed before the temporary Bush tax cuts.

If the higher rates stay in effect, it will mean the largest year-to-year tax increase in history and it will mean more recession and more unemployment. They even compare it to falling off a cliff. Keep in mind, that no matter what happens, they have no plans to keep that 2 percent reduction in social security withholding. Both you and your employer will go back to the old rate. Further, if nothing is passed, a 1 percent Obamacare tax will be added.

The bottom line is that I can see the possibility of take home pay of most middle class workers being 5 to 10 percent lower in January because of the increased federal and local taxes that are withheld. What do you think that would do to the economy? How long could it last? Then, after the damage is done, the Democrats will scream murder and blame it all on the Republicans even though all the Democrats had to do to get a bill passed was make spending cuts rather than raising taxes.

The Federal Reserve is now starting quantitative easing number four. They plan to create at least another trillion dollars out of thin air in 2013 to buy up our national debt. That will keep interest rates low for now, but eventually it is bound to bring about hyperinflation through a worldwide crash of the dollar. Before the Federal Reserve ends the next round of printing, they will be holding over 4 trillion in American debt that they bought by just increasing the money supply.

Have you ever played the game Monopoly where the rules were changed so that everyone would have more money to buy property? Like putting all taxes collected on the free space so that whoever lands on this handout would get all the collected taxes and fines (sounds almost prophetic). Under these made up rules, pretty soon the bank ran out of money, so then you had to create fake monopoly money made out of slips of paper. Pretty soon the players had all the land bought up and everyone had a heap of money in front on them but their was nothing left on the board to buy. So the next step was to try to get players to sell their properties by offering them more than the face value of their properties. If someone wanted to sell the property they had, it would go to the highest bidder. It was not long before the price of all properties started to soar and even the cheapest properties could only be bought by the richest players. The point is that the real world works the same way. If our federal reserve banks keep making new dollars the price of everything bought with those dollars will be bid up making each dollar buy less.


The shooting at the Sandy Hook School was sad and tragic. From what I read, the guy had a defective brain and he also was into the occult. I think that is a deadly combination. Fatherless homes and those that allow their teens to become obsessed with violent video games also seems to play a role in creating these modern mass murderers. Islam also creates mass murderers, but it is not politically correct in the West to tell anyone the truth about the hateful violent brainwashing that Islam offers.

Like usual, the liberals want to blame the guns instead of blaming evil and the dysfunctional system that they created to deal with evil. If guns were taken away from all law-abiding citizens in this country the crime rate would sky-rocket. Criminals would still get weapons and the police would still show up after the crime was already committed.

The liberals know they cannot repeal the Second Amendment to our Constitution, so they will use other methods until they can get a liberal Supreme Court to just redefine what the words of the Second Amendment mean. Even so, you can be sure they will not let this mass slaughter go to waste. I do not rule out unconstitutional action against gun owners by this Obama administration.

The clear intent of allowing citizens to have guns was so that they would have the power to overthrow the government if it became lawless and tyrannical. However, the founders should have realized that a government that already became tyrannical would not abide by their Bill of Rights either. That is why I believe James Madison said that our system of government would only work if the nation had a moral and religious people.

The people who take the oath to uphold our Constitution should be the very ones to enforce it. Once the oath to uphold the Constitution means nothing to those that swear by God to uphold it, the nation the founders set up is already lost. Obviously then, those swearing the oath to God, but not meaning it, is a moral failing. That moral failing in a nut shell, is pretty much why we already have lost the nation that our founders set up.

How many times in the history of the world have we already seen government kill thousands and even millions of its own people because the government became tyrannical and had all the weapons? That is the real reason that the Second Amendment to our Constitution was written and passed by our founders. Nevertheless, if the liberals are successful in making citizens guns about as effective as bows and arrows against Gatling guns, the freedom loving natives in this country, like the original natives that survived our early history, will be put on government reservations at their whim.


North Korea just put a satellite in orbit around the earth. Thus, they have proved that they can put a package in space high over the United States. Now all they have to do is learn how to put a small nuke on that rocket and they would have an EMP threat to the United States from their own homeland. Our defenses against these intercontinental ballistic missiles are limited at best. I suggest they we start taking the N. Korean and the Iranian missile and nuclear development program threat seriously or the whole nation may wake up to TEOTWAWKI.


Apparently Rick Warren has not even understood what God said about homosexuality and marriage in the Bible. Rick Warren recently reportedly said that he did not know if homosexual marriage is sinful. I guess that statement should not surprise anyone that has been aware of the double mindedness of Rick Warren over the years.  He is not alone among those that call themselves the New Evangelicals. Everything in Christian doctrine that offends the sinful world can just be redefined to try to please everyone in the world but true Christians.


Last month I let you know that I was finally getting high-speed Internet here. That has occurred and it makes quite a difference. With the new WiFi router that I also got, I can now get an Internet connection anywhere in my house with my new PC replacement laptop.

I am still working on getting the programs I need downloaded on this new computer. I suppose that will be a gradual process because I do not want to just copy all the garbage that is on my old computer. I also got a small tablet computer for taking on the road. Now I have to figure out the Android operating system so I can use it for approving comments and such tasks.

Since I got a new Internet Service provider with the high-speed Internet, it was time to get a new email address as well. The old email address will still be forwarded from my website host but you won’t see any replies coming from that address anymore.

I hope you and yours have a great holiday season!
