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

The big news right now is Obamacare and the lies about it that Obama and his Obamamites told the American people. If present trends hold true, today’s MSM news headlines will soon be replaced by something equally shocking and Obamacare will be put on the back page like all the previous lies, unconstitutional actions, and dictatorial abuses of power by this Obama administration.

While conservatives think they are gaining in the national debate, the Obama administration is even using the revelation of the month club to shoehorn in other abuses of power while everyone is focused on the new monthly issue. For example, how many people are aware of the continuing purge of officers in the military? How many are aware that there is a bill that is likely to pass the Senate that will make sex perverts a special class like the American disabled? If that Act passes, God forbid that you do not kowtow to sexual deviates in all that you do. How many know that just last week Obama took it upon himself to be dictator over anything that he thinks might be related to or caused by Global warming? That therefore includes all natural events and the global warming that the insane think causes these natural events. He intends to dictate solutions to deal with perceived global threats by shutting down coal plants, taxing carbon use, through land and water regulatory actions, etc. It does not matter that Global warming is not even happening. It really is about control of the people by government. My examples of these abuses of power are just the tip of the iceberg. There are new abuses of power and unconstitutional actions by the Obama administration every single day.

I suppose immigration reform and those lies will soon have its day in the sun, but that will soon be replaced by something else. If you have major abuses of power each month who can keep up with investigating them? That seems to be the Obama strategy.


The 2013 election results of national interest are in:

In Virgina the socialists made an all out effort to stop conservative Ken Cuccinelli’s efforts to become governor and they succeeded. The Democrats out spent the Republican candidate 3 to 1 using ads filled with lies. The Obamamites also set up a un-Libertarian Libertarian candidate that took away about 7 percent of votes that would have gone to Cuccinelli if people actually knew the dirty trick that was being played on them. Ron Paul warned them the day before the election that Libertarians need to vote for Cuccinelli but low information voters did not get the message. Because of this, and because the Republican establishment actually wanted Conservative Cuccinelli to lose, the progressive Democrat, McAuliffe, won by two percent. Virgina will now have a sleazy Bill Clinton clone as governor instead of a decent honest man. Congratulations! Conservatives and Libertarians are going to have to quit falling for Democratic Party dirty tricks or they might as well convert to Communism.

Chris Christie won reelection in New Jersey as expected. He undoubtedly will be the Republican establishment favorite for President in the 2016 election. Christie says he is a conservative but if that were really true he would not have been reelected in this overwhelmingly liberal state. Talk show host Michael Savage is already on the Christie bandwagon saying that getting 50 percent of what the Conservatives want is better than having Hillary Clinton as President. That might be true, but once again we are being told that the key to victory by conservatives is to get behind progressives. Just a couple of weeks ago Savage was saying that we needed a nationalist movement to save America and that he would be working toward that end in his new talk show slot following Rush Limbaugh. Now he is blowing a different tune because he is scared of Hillary.

I have news for people like Savage. It is still three years before the Presidential election. We should first make sure that our nation even survives under the great destroyer, or by 2016 we may not even have a nation to save. That means conservatives need to take control of the House and the Senate in 2014. However, for that to even happen there first has to be a paradigm shift in America back toward traditional values. The time for all conservatives to work on that effort is now.

A card-carrying Communist was elected as the next Major of New York City. What is it about Jews that makes them socialists? Apparently, most Jews are actually practical atheists that give lip service to God if they even give that much. They stupidly put their trust in the goodwill of government and men that will oppress them. They rejected the man who God sent to save them but they embrace the men that Satan sends to deceive and destroy them.  Jews are still a stiff-necked people who never learn from their own history. Human government is still the only Messiah that most Jews believe in.

Less than half the counties in Colorado that put secession from Colorado on the ballot got a positive vote. That could mean the end of that effort.


Israel has a dilemma and it really needs to make a decision by next month. Do they buck Obama and strike Iran’s nuclear facilities now, or do they play the fool and actually think that Obama is going to appease Iran into not building nuclear weapons? Meanwhile, Iran continues to enrich nuclear material for nuclear weapons and is building the means to deliver them even over the United States.

It should be obvious to Israel that Obama is being played for a fool by Iran, but I do not have a lot of confidence that there is any wisdom in the leadership of Israel either.

I know what I would do within the next six weeks if I were leading Israel. I would do a limited strike on Iran that is geared to set back Iran’s nuclear weapons development program for about five years. I would limit the strike to that, in the hope that American conservatives would take over in 2017. If the socialists win in America again in 2016, Israel would then have to use their own big guns to eliminate the Iranian nuclear threat for an extended period of time. It is also possible that Israel will be part of the revived Roman Empire by that time, and perhaps that alliance will deal with Iran.

In the meantime, the best course of action for Israel is to deal with the immediate threat because Obama is not going to stop Iran from building nukes by talking, and it will soon be too late for Israel to stop them without resorting to using their own nuclear weapons and inflicting mass casualties. A military strike by Israel could be the major news headline in December.


If Israel does take action, their strike could occur in conjunction with Comet ISON. This comet will become visible to the naked eye in less than two weeks. It will be very bright and closest to the sun on Thanksgiving. If it survives its trip around the sun it could be the most brilliant sign in the sky seen in the last few centuries and it could be a Christmas spectacular. Will Comet ISON have prophetic significance? Guess we will have to wait to see how things play out.

Frankly, the timing makes me think that it could be a harbinger of some soon coming major event on earth. Perhaps it will announce the rise of the revived Roman Empire, a World War against the Islamists, a strike by Israel on Iran, or any of the above or something just as significant, like an EMP over America, or civil upheavals in Europe and America. I think God in all foreknowledge placed these things in the heavens to arrive on His schedule to announce things that are soon to take place on earth. However, it also could also turn out to be a dud like the comet of 1973. We shall know shortly.


Speaking about upheavals in Europe, if you are keeping up with things there, you should know that the nationalistic Right is gaining ground in Europe at amazing speed. The radical right already represents about a third of the people of France. This right-wing backlash is rising over much of Europe because of failed multiculturalism, socialism,  government tyranny and very high unemployment rates. I have said for over a decade that their would be a nationalistic backlash against Islam in Europe. I believe you are seeing the grass-roots start of it. One or two major terrorist attacks in Europe will push the majority in Europe over the edge.

Many Europeans are fed up with the elitists dictating a socialistic pipe dream in Europe that in practice is destroying their nations. The rising nationalists in EU nations now believe that they will take the majority in the EU parliament in 2014. Should that happen, things will radically change in Europe. The Euro and multiculturalism programs could be eliminated. That could pave the way for civil upheaval followed by the revived Roman Empire that I keep talking about that will include about the same geographical areas of the Old Roman Empire. And yes, a war with Islamic Jihadist’s then would become inevitable and also set the stage for the rise of the Harlot ruling over world religion.

  1. Hi did you see in early October 2013 a Forbes article about the IMF plan for global taxation-very interesting. There was also video fro the IMF meeting in October-that was scary. Your thoughts??

  2. Carol,

    I did not see them. The Globalists are always up to something to fund world government but getting nations to buy into their schemes is where they run into problems. I don’t fear world government as much as I fear the elitist Communistic atheists and the secular humanists that will be controlling the world government that they want.

  3. Carol,

    I just heard about the IMF suggestions to reduce national debts by vast tax increases and even the wealth confiscation of people that have positive bottom lines. I think if they actually tried that robbery here they would have a civil war.

    More likely we will see sudden hyperinflation which will do the same thing. I keep telling myself and people to spend their money on tangibles before they lose what they saved. Something like this is certainly coming because there is no way that our government can pay for the increasing debt and entitlements load much longer.

  4. I happen to believe that the far left control freaks would not even allow a conservative to be elected and undo everything they worked decades to accomplish. I think they would resort to violence if any real change was attempted. They would rather tear this country apart then see it in the hands of a conservative.
    Chris Christie is a joke and hardly a conservative. If he is the nominee I bet Hilary would win in 2016. We really just do not have any good leadership on the right wing. I hear names like Jeb Bush being thrown around for a potential nominee and just lose the little hope I had left.
    I happen to think Michael Savage is one of the best talk show hosts out there. I know he is not a christian but his politics are very sound. I wish one of these radio hosts would run and see what happens.
    I have been hearing that Israel needs to attack Iran or else for years now. Every time they back off and nothing happens. I just don’t see it happening any time soon. Although, I never hear about Iran in the newspapers anymore which probably means we DO need to worry about it. I find the issues that are actually important never make to the news and vice versa.
    On a more personal note I have been trying to figure out how I can best serve God in these latter years. I have not gotten any real leading except that I have a strong interest in soon coming of Jesus and politics. I was thinking about starting a local paper that I could gather support for that actually has a christian conservative point of view. There are alot of conservatives in my area that don’t read the news due to the overwhelming liberal bias. I doubt it would make a profit but it’s something I was thinking about. Any advice would be appreciated.

  5. Hi Don. Hope you are feeling better. I took your advise last year to buy homes at the very low interest rate, since you thought interest rates would rise. I have one paid for and two with mortgages. Do you think I should sell one of the ones with a mortgage ( I have it rented and it pays the mortgage on the one I live in as well as the taxes), and pay off the one I live in? It would be a loss of about $500.00 a month but at least if things got real bad I wouldn’t have to worry about keeping it rented. It would be financially difficult to carry two mortgages and taxes etc.

    Also what do you mean by intangibles? Silver and gold?

  6. Hi Kate,

    I am not a financial adviser you know. I never advised anyone to be a landlord but if you do not mind that pain in the butt the renters will probably pay the mortgage unless they destroy the house first. If things get really bad we will all find out that there are no guarantees of financial security in this world.

    I said people might invest in tangibles not intangibles. Tangibles are something that people need that will always have some relative value. On the other hand, paper money or digits on a bank computer may someday be worth little or nothing.

  7. With this blog content, it seems to support my speculative contention that the Americas are not some kind of new roman empire extension, thereby explaining the “non-mention” of the Americas in future prophecy.

    As Europe et al moves hard right (as per blog), and all the various future prophecied violence thereof, I doubt the looming future new roman empire would concern itself with an America that is moving hopelessly insane if not stupid and ignorant.

    I don’t see the looming Harlot, also emerging after future prophecied vioence, being tolerant of a liberal America either.

    Regarding the Lord’s leading of His future bride in this time and things like financial considerations, I would follow the key priorities – namely, water first and food second. One should ascertain how they can obtain clean drinking water (if you are thinking you can just lift up on the tap, there is a very very long educational road ahead for you), and then work on food (canned goods, freeze dried, renewable food sources like gardening and fishing, etc). I invested in a hand pump system for my water well. I am experimenting with solar and wind. I am making strategic purchases. Use your head.

    The Lord gave Joseph the looming prophecy of Joseph’s time. In faith, Joseph stored up grain for the good years to save the people in the following lean years. People of faith should recognize the current looming prophetic years and act in faith just as Joseph did. When judgment comes, the bride of faith should have significant witness when the scoffing neighbors are finally on their knees.

  8. I just found out about the legislation the Senate passed for the Gay Agenda today, I will be calling my Congressmen tomorrow. It’s amazing how much better informed I am now that I visited alternative news sites, than in the days when I would simply turn on the TV to get the news. Sad days for journalism in America.

  9. I honestly don’t know how this country is going to make it two more full years under this administration with breaking. The documentary of 2016 laid it out pretty well and I believe this man is in position to run this country in the ground. The USD is about to be replaced as the world currency, Socialized healthcare with ridiculous cost enforced by the IRS, full time jobs being reduced to part time jobs, purging of military brass who stand up for the constitution, politically correctness increasingly becoming law of the land, Christians being labeled as terrorist. 2 Timothy 3 (make no mistake, this is happening now)

    Ever wonder how when you change news channels the same story is on or maybe the same camera angle? Were talking within seconds or minutes every news channel in the main stream media has it. Well, Main Stream Media (MSM) is owned by six corporations. This makes it easier for those in charge to control what is shown\displayed\printed. Investigative journalism is over and propaganda is the new means. Political correctness triumphs truth every time.

    Find some alternative news sources and do your home work. When it comes to Israel, I like to go to http://www.jpost.com/ and read the news there.

    I’m with Don, something just as shocking as your healthcare plan going away after being told it wouldn’t, is gonna hit headlines soon enough. Could be next week during the GridEX II drill Nov. 13-14…

    God bless you Don and prayed for your fast recovery :)

  10. Jim,
    Let me encourage you to follow your dream and write your paper. People like me, who read this website and still hold to a conservative Christian world view, are always encouraged by reading godly perspective in this day and age. It’s why we keep coming back to Don and others like him. May the Lord order your steps in this endeavor. Now seems to be a great time for that sort of undertaking. Even if you have to start with something small like a newsletter, do it!!

  11. I always look forward to your monthly perspectives, Don; they’re informative and off-topic comments are still okay.
    Speaking of a grassroots backlash in regards to Islam, since the hardcore socialist Labor/Greens’ alliance government was turfed out in September more commentators in this country are beginning to express their viewpoints (though I wouldn’t call them right-wing, more centre-conservatives). Articles like this are becoming more common:

  12. Don, is there biblical evidence for “dual prophecies”? I hear a lot anout that but wonder how people decided this was something that happened, and how do they determine which verses that applies to? Sometimes I wonder if it’s stretching it just to fit some predetermined theory?

  13. Hi Jen,

    There is plenty of evidence for a near partial fulfillment and then the prophecy going on to describe what only could apply and be fulfilled in the Day of the Lord. The Antichrist prototype of Antiochus IV Epiphanes is such an example of their being partial fulfillment of what was said by Daniel that will have a latter day more complete fulfillment. Also, what Jesus said was partially fulfilled in 70 AD but certainly not all of what He said could not be fulfilled until the end of the age.

    The way people would decide is by knowing what the prophets said and comparing it to what happened in history. John MacArthur points out many examples in his Commentary on the Bible.

    Yes, it can get difficult to sort out at times and that is one reason Bible prophecy students differ on prophetic points. And yes, unfortunately some will proof text and make scriptures fit their own theory rather than letting the grammatical historical context determine the correct interpretation. Examples of this are those that use 2Ch 7:14 as applying to the Church and America and Jonathan Cahn’s delusions about Isa 9:10 applying to America.
