Koenig’s perspectives on Bible prophecy and world issues Feb 2013

On February 7, 2013 · 22 Comments

The primary Windows XP computer system that I have used for almost 10 years crashed last week and would not boot into Windows. I tried everything to no avail, so I eventually reformatted the disk. I reloaded windows XP and tried to download service pack 2 and 3 from Microsoft but that is one experience that failed that I would not like to try to duplicate any time soon.

I finally came to the conclusion that it was not worth all the effort to get that computer on-line again since I had already moved quite a bit of what I needed to my new laptop computer.

Anyway, much of last week was spent trouble shooting the computer and then downloading new software that I needed on my new laptop. I can’t use my scanner with the new 64-bit  system because there is no driver for it, but I did find a driver for the printer. I guess I could run the scanner off of my old computer when I need it. I think the main thing left undone is learning the various learning curves on the various software that I downloaded.

I had to download a new Bible search software, so I downloaded three of them. They all have a lot of free modules, but of course you must pay to unlock  modules that are not in the public domain. One that I downloaded is called “Online Bible”, this is an upgrade of the software that I have used for many years. I will probably still use this software for general searches because I am so familiar with the program.

I also downloaded “theWorld” and “e-sword”.  e-Sword is the easier software of the two to use but theWord has more functions. Both of these software allow you to download the usual classics but they also point you to a directory that has thousands of other third-party books and commentaries that will integrate with their graphic user interface. I downloaded my Revelation Commentary and it fully integrates with chapters and verses of the Bible. So I can look up a verse in Revelation, click on my name and see what I said about that passage.

I had to find a replacement for HMTL webpage creation software for files on my website that are not in the WordPress Blog. I had used Visual Page,  but the software is about 15 years old and will not load on the new computer. I found a dandy free website creation software called “Microsoft Expression Web 4″. I think this free software ranks right up there with the best commercial products. I am not planing any new design to the website anytime soon but this software will allow me to do updates.

Anyway, it looks like I am now set up to go. Getting used to this laptop keyboard seems to be my biggest problem now.


It looks like North Korea is getting ready to do two nuclear bomb tests. They also produced a video showing their bomb hitting New York City. They are also sharing nuclear information and rocket information with Iran. The day of the EMP draws ever closer but our Congress seems to be dysfunctional. Why do I get this feeling that one day soon, these United States of America will cease to exist? I guess we cannot say that we were not warned, Congress was made aware of this threat almost a decade ago.  Obama came in like a savior but he just may go out like a failed power grid.


If you believe MSM and the stock market, America is in a recovery. In truth, we are in an economic mess. The markets are going up because few other investments pay any interest thanks to the Federal Reserve money creation and debt buying scheme. Meanwhile, savers with bank accounts lose money after adjusting for inflation because of those artificially low interest rates.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, 7 million workers will lose their health insurance due to Obamacare. I believe that is double what was claimed when the health bill was sold. I am not sure that number is correct either. I know many employers will just adjust their staff downward and will convert full time workers to part time workers so that they do not have to provide health insurance or pay the fine.

This “recovery” had an official GNP downturn of .01 percent in the last quarter of last year and that figure is not adjusted for inflation. Three of those negative quarters in a row is the very definition of a recession. Unemployment is going up again and even more people are no longer being counted as being in the work force. Why do we have 8 million less workers than we once had with our still rising population if we are in a recovery?

Why is average income still falling if we are in a recovery? And why are prices rising so quickly if there is little inflation? If this is a recovery, I would hate to see what happens in the next official recession or when inflation takes off. However, you can bet your bottom dollar that they always show up.

The real question is, how can the government keep spending trillions more dollars then they take in and not have anything tangible to show for it except for more national debt? And that debt is going to finish us off once interest rates do their inevitable rise. The only question is how long can smoke and mirror tricks fool people before they catch on and the panic takes place and the riots break out?

Obamacare will add trillions more to the national debt and if his immigration policy is passed that will add even more trillions. It is like the democrats have an America death wish.

Argentina is putting price controls on food. The Argentinians never learn that price controls and women idols are not wise political choices to make, and we never learn that entrenched politicians always sell us out and let government bureaucrats enslave us. We do not need food price controls here because soon we will be eating the ammo stockpile of Homeland Security.


Did you know that black mobs are beating and robbing people and businesses in big cities all over this nation? It is a plague, but hardly anything is ever reported on it on the MSM. When they do report on it, they do not mention the color of the attackers. Even the police forces will not comment on it. Somebody better start dealing with this problem and not only because of the obvious injustice. It also is setting things up for major riots in this nation. Sooner or later a couple of black mobsters are going to be shot and killed in self-defense by a white person, then the big riots start.

Some governors and most big city mayors want people disarmed so that they cannot protect their lives and their property from these mobs. But, if the victim waits for the police to show up, the victim still has been beaten and robbed and the criminals will not be sticking around to be arrested. When have you ever heard of the police showing up to stop a flash mob attack, or the knock the brains out of a white or Asian “game”? So, without self-defense or police protection, where is the deterrence? Because black mobs continue to get away with these crimes, it is spreading like a plague.

This is what you get when you have kids brought up by street thugs because they have no father. This is what you get when half the black youth in inter cities cannot get a job because they cannot fill out the job application, make change for a dollar, or even talk English. This permissive “progressive” agenda in America is really working wonders. It is working wonders to destroy this nation!


Obama as President, Biden as Vice President, Kerry as Secretary of State, Hagel as Defense Secretary – need I say more? The foxes are already in the hen house and Chicken Sam took the last train to the perverted coasts singing bye bye America die. And the three men I admire most The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost have been banished to the Heartland.


From the emails I get, I see that once again I need to point out that the Psalm 83 war is not going to be fulfilled in the next couple of years. Every time something happens in the Middle East certain people see it as the possible launching point for the Psalm 83 war. There very well could be an imminent major war in the Middle East, but at best it will only be a precursor to the Psalm 83 war. And no, Israel is not going to make Damascus uninhabitable and cease from being a city during this civil war in Syria. And no, one nuclear bomb or even a few could not possibly fulfill that Isaiah prophecy.

It is almost like some people are wanting to see Israel get into a major war so that they have to nuke their enemies. I think God told us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, not hope for a war so that we can believe the Rapture is upon us. Some Christian people are wasting their lives trying to figure out every detail in prophetic passages when they don’t even expect to be here when those events happen. So what is the point, after the Rapture do they plan to tell God what is going to happen?

And please, if you’re going to email and ask me a question on some point of prophecy, don’t do it with the intention of trying to start an argument. I have better things to do with my time, even if you do not. Also, I trashed four long-winded blog comments just this morning. If you wish to comment on my blog, at least read my commenting policy at least once. I also have news, unparagraphed long-winded comments are not going to get posted. They are almost unreadable.
