The Death of Kim Jong-il

The hermit, stalinist state of North Korea saw the death of it’s leader Kim Jong-il this month. The 69 year old is believed to have died from a heart attack. Kim Jong-il was worshiped as a demi-god by the people, and was an all powerful leader.  Opposition to his rule was met with brutal punishment, the harsh labour camps are places where people seldom leave.

Kim Jong-il succeed his father Kim il-Sung. Kim il-Song like his son is still revered like a god, and is called the “Eternal Leader”. North Koreans are completely cut off from the outside world. The people are fed a constant stream of propaganda which portrays the outside world, particularly America as evil, and themselves as a pure race, the envy of the world; there is no access to outside media whatsoever. The authorities tell the people they need to remain cut off so as to protect the purity of their blood. Both Kim il-Sung and Kim Jong-il have viewed Christians as one of the greatest enemies to the nation. North Korea was once a predominately Christian nation, with Pyongyang called the Jerusalem of the east. However, when Kim il-Sung took power he sought to eradicate the church. All Christians were rounded up and executed. Today any Christians found are sent to labour camps where they are tortured and eventually killed. A few testimonies have emerged from some who have secretly converted the Christianity from within the camps, and were later released before escaping to China, they tell of the terrible suffering of the tiny church within North Korea.

The general population do not fair much better, most are malnourished, and it is not uncommon to see people die of starvation by the roadside; whilst the ruling elite live in luxury.

Kim Jong- il is to be succeeded by his son Kim Jong-un. His official age is 29, but it is thought to be only 27, very little is known of him. It is therefore believed the powerful figures that surrounded his father will vie for position, and seek to control Kim Jong-un.

How this will play out is uncertain. What we do know, is as the nation starves, North Korea has invested in one of the largest armies in the world, and has nuclear weapons. An uneasy truce with South Korea could erupt at any time, as the paranoid North Korean government tend to act on the slightest act they deem as provocation. And the people have been told for decades that the West seeks to destroy them.


10 Commandments on Display in New York

The oldest complete copy of the Ten Commandments is going on display as part of an exhibition in New York’s Time Square.

The document is part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and dates back to 30 B.C. This document is so rare and delicate, that this is likely to be the last time it will be on public display. After the exhibition the Ten Commandments scroll will be returned to it’s protective vault in Jerusalem.

The Ten Commandments have shaped our society and culture, and it is a great honor that the final public viewing of this scroll should be in Times Square, New York.

Times Square was once thought of as the centre of sin in New York. However, as ICOTG New York meets in this region we seek to change the atmosphere and rule and reign with Christ, so His Presence is in the city.



Senate Bill 1867: National Defence Authorization Act

Since 9/11 homeland security has been at the top of the political agenda. The threat from Al Qaeda and affiliated groups remains high; and clearly, America’s enemies are not necessarily living in some far off land, but on her very soil. The threat from home grown terrorists is very real.

Consequently the recently passed Bill 1867 National Defence Authorization Act, has integrated national security with homeland security. On the face of things this may appear a good idea, if it keeps America safe. However, the bill has caused widespread alarm due to it’s wider implications.

S 1867 now defines American soil as part of “the battlefield”, and American citizens deemed to be “at war” with America can be detained without charge or trial. The protection offered citizens under the Constitution therefore will be removed.

The language of the bill is so vague it could be open to abuse, and could be used against US citizens; in a worst case scenario paving the way for internment camps.

Such legislation has the appearance of wisdom, but will do very little to protect against the types of terrorist attacks we have seen. What protects a region against destruction is the Presence of God, exposing wickedness, and renewing the minds of those who seek to perpetrate such crimes.

It was Prophet TV bringing the mantle into New York which stopped the Times Square bomb in May 2010. It was Prophet TV establishing an International Church Of The Gates (ICOTG) in Manhattan New York, which brought about the miracle on the Hudson, when a passenger plane landed on the icy Hudson River with no casualties. Scientifically, that plane ought to have crashed resulting in disaster, so this truly was a miracle. However, it is always God’s desire to save.

Such legislation as S 1867 only removes freedom, and could be used to oppress; only the Presence of God truly protects. Partner with Prophet TV, and partake of the mantle on this ministry.


“May the Force be With You”

Scientists from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN Switzerland, believe they have found the elusive Higgs Boson, or God particle. The Higgs Boson is the Holy Grail of particle physics, the missing piece of the jigsaw in the Standard Model of particle physics. The Standard Model explains the entire sub-atomic world, and the LHC was built in a large part to try and discover the Higgs Boson.

The Higgs Boson is a tiny particle which creates a force field, which had been dubbed, “The Force”. Everything in the universe interacts with this force and derives it’s mass from the Higgs field. The National Geographic described it like, “sort of the way a Jedi knight in Star Wars is the carrier of the “force””, or like Obi Wan said, “the Force surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”

We need to be aware that while scientists are attempting to make sense of how our world was created, they could also be making black holes as a result of their experiments, which may endanger our planet, in their quest for knowledge of the creation of the universe, as they seek to create matter. Where these experiments will eventually lead is both mind-blowing and concerning in the hands of Man.


Iran’s Army Prepare for War

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard have been placed on a war footing. Iran is again facing international pressure over it’s nuclear program, and it is now increasingly apparent that Iran will not give up it’s nuclear ambitions.

The Iranian government believe it’s nuclear program is the victim of a concerted and sustained attack from the West, beginning last year with a cyber attack directly upon it’s nuclear facilities. Iran also believe the West is responsible for two recent explosions, both military targets.

“It looks like the 21st century form of war,” said Patrick Clawson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a Washington think tank, told the Los Angeles Times. “It does appear that there is a campaign of assassinations and cyber war, as well as the semi-acknowledged campaign of sabotage.”

Iran have been hitting back by raiding the British embassy in Tehran and shooting down a US spy drone. Iran have seized computers from the British embassy, and the US security services are concerned over the loss of the spy drone.

This escalation in the region has to be taken seriously. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has openly spoken of his belief that he is God’s chosen vessel to usher in the coming of the Mahdi, an Islamic Messianic figure.

The Mahdi, or 12th Imam is prophesied to come in the midst of an apocalyptic type war, resulting in the destruction of Israel. It is little wonder that the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is taking the threat very seriously. Prime Minister Netanyahu has said Israel would make “the right decision at the right moment”. For Israel, an Iran with a nuclear arsenal is not an option that they will tolerate.


Herman Cain Ends Bid to Win Republican Nomination

Herman Cain’s the former Republican presidential  hopeful, found himself in the midst of a media storm over allegations of his private life. Cain tried to defend himself against claims of sexual misconduct.

At one point Cain lead the race in the republican primaries, but as the media attention increased slowly his ratings fell.

Several journalists have reported controversial details about how the information was obtained. Once again we see the work of the enemy in trying to discredit candidates who might strong candidates who oppose the Obama administration in the forthcoming elections. This type of action has been seen in previous elections and we must keep our focus and prayers for God’s man to come forward, to lead USA out of its current problems.


“Pasadena is the ‘epicenter’ of a windstorm”, says city manager

Thursday morning in Pasadena revealed a city hit by winds of a ferocious nature which has knocked down trees and power lines littering the entire 26 square mile of the city.

The City Manager (Michael Beck) who was interviewed in the basement of City Hall…”Pasadena seems to be the epicenter” of the windstorm.

European Summit December 8th

December 8th will see the European Union Summit meet again in Brussels. Top of the agenda will be the Euro Crisis. This will be a crucial meeting, and the heads of state have to come up with a plan to quickly forge a way through the economic woes of Europe.

In their last summit they came up with the plan for a €1 trillion bailout fund, since then they have been unable to secure investment to the fund. Furthermore, the crisis has deepened with the other measures making little impact, apart from buying a little time. Therefore, this month’s summit is all the more important. Top of the agenda will be the formation of some sort of fiscal union, but the Germans are still refusing to allow the creation of Eurobonds or the ECB to become lender of last resort. However, they are insisting on “total oversight” of any new fiscal union. For example, already the Irish Prime Minister this week discovered the German Bundstag have obtained copies of the Irish budget and are closely studying it, even before the Irish legislators have seen it. What the German’s are asking for in return for the fiscal union, is unprecedented power over the Eurozone… do you think Greeks and Italians etc will happily sit back and allow Berlin to control their public finances?

Obama is pressing Cameron to bash German and French heads together to come up with the goods, and the Bank of England’s governor has said failure to do so would result in a worse financial crash than the 1930’s. As the Telegraph says, “The 1930’s saw mass unemployment and financial calamity, with stock markets losing 90 per cent of their value. More ominously still, 1930-39 was the decade when mainstream politicians lost control of events, when the Nazi’s rose to power and the far Right took charge in Europe. By the end of the decade the world was at war, and the Holocaust – the greatest crime in human history – was about to begin in earnest.” In the natural, the financial chaos of the 1930s helped Hitler win power in Germany, as he promised them prosperity and strength. The failure of the Euro will have far wider implications on the world than we could ever think or imagine.

Europe needs the mantle on Prophet TV at this time. In the past, low support has hampered the missions Prophet TV has carried out into Europe, so please support the work of God in Europe at this crucial time.


America May Save the Euro

Some new and more radical solutions are beginning to be discussed about how to save the Euro from collapse. One of these solutions is for the IMF to provide funding for Italy and Spain if they need help. They are thought to be planning an $800bn bailout package, but the deal would mean the European bailout fund would have to underwrite the first 30% of any defaulted debt, therefore they still need the €1 trillion in the bank (which still poses the same problem of where to get that from), and they also suggest the bail out fund begin to issue bonds. This would mean many other countries other than Eurozone ones, helping bailout the Eurozone. America contributes 17% to the IMF, consequently, America would send Italy $136 billion under this deal!

Another solution is that the US Fed, buys up the European countries bonds. These are currently all but unsellable. By doing so, the borrowing costs of Spain and Italy would fall overnight, and the US Fed would in effect take the place of lender of last resort, a role the European Central Bank has thus far refused to fill. However, there are two problems with this plan: firstly it could hurt the dollar, and secondly inflation, as it would have the same effect as printing money. The fear of inflation is one of the issues which has hampered action being taken. Germany has an unhappy history with inflation, and the German people and government are wary of anything that may trigger it again. But, many respected economists believe the main threat facing Europe is hyper-deflation.

However, neither of these solutions deal with the underling cause of the crisis. That of a single currency operating with a 30% misalignment between north and south; only the exit of either the wealthy northern states, or the exit of the poorer PIIGS states can solve that. Perhaps some US imposed inflation will make this prospect seem more palatable to the German’s?

With the European stale-mate still very much evident, it looks more likely that the rest of the world will have to take action in order to avoid a global depression, worse than that of the 1930’s financial crash.


The Death of the Euro?

The Euro crisis is thought to be entering it’s most critical phase. A toxic mix is contributing to a complete loss of confidence in the Euro as a currency, and the policy makers involved in it’s management.

Countries across Europe are beginning to see their borrowing costs rise, as fear spreads from nation to nation. Italy and Spain are both in the danger zone, and France has received repeated warnings that their credit rating is at risk of being cut. Now, what many believed to be unthinkable, Germany is struggling to attract investors on the bond market.

The Euro bailout deal, looks more and more uncertain, as Europe struggles to raise the €1 trillion it requires for it’s bailout fund. Logically, you do not need to be an economist to know Europe is not a sound investment at present.

However, this is beginning to look like end game. UK banks are now openly making plans for the biggest default in history, and the unorderly break up of the Eurozone. American investors are trying to take money out of Europe as quickly and decently as they can. British embassies in Eurozone nations, have even been told to start preparations to help Britons caught up in riots, in the wake of the Euro collapse. Even the lethargic Europhiles, who have seemed to be one step behind this entire crisis, are beginning to wake up to the fact they have very little time and few options.

Although most believe the politicians and Eurocrates will seek to do all they can to ensure the survival of the Euro, they may have ran out of time, thanks to the rapidly increasing investor panic, the worsening economic outlook, the perceived refusal of the Germans to accept a fiscal union (although lessing this to many of the other Eurozone nations may prove highly problematic) and the rejection by the European Central Bank (ECB) to act as lender of last resort.

It would take very little to cause the Euro to collapse within weeks, rather than months. However, the big test will come in January when Italy needs to raise € 30 billion.  If it cannot do so, then Italy will default. With the fear in Europe that the business sector has dried up, and 2012 looks like there will be a deep recession throughout Europe, fuelled by the austerity measures which are already crippling Greece’s economy.

Even at this eleventh hour, there is still a little hope. Policy makers need clear vision, and wisdom if Europe is to find her way through this crisis. Support Prophet TV so we can run missions into Europe. It will be anarchy if it all collapses, and not only Europe will be affected but the whole of the western economy including the USA.


Assassination Attempt Against President Obama


A young Idaho man has been arrested in Pennsylvania for an assassination attempt against President Obama.

Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, 21, is accused of firing a rifle at the White House, with one of the bullets hitting the window of the First Family’s residence.

In a new development Ortega-Hernandez posted a video to Oprah Winfrey, in the hope of it being aired on her hugely popular television channel. In the recoding he calls himself a “modern day Jesus”. In his 45 minute ramble he says, “You see Ophrah, there is still so much more that God needs me to express to the world. It’s not just a coincidence that I look like Jesus. I’m the modern day Jesus Christ that you have all been waiting for.”

Although he does not mention the President by name he goes on to say, regarding the American government, “fighting, or should I say bullying those other countries for their oil, our freedom is at stake.”

Since the Dalai Lama conducted the Kalachakra (the occult event which evokes demons of destruction into the region) in Washington DC last summer a lot has happened in that region, which is motivated by the demons evoked.

In this latest attack, the devil has sought to attack the Church as well as the President. Often he uses “Christians” by motivating them to do or say foolish things, making the real church look crazy or stupid, as the secular mind makes no distinction from those who use the name of Jesus and those who truly walk with Jesus.


How the Vatican Helped Nazis Escape Justice

In the weeks and months after World War II the world began to realise the full extent of Nazi wickedness. Allied nations watched with horror as concentration camps were liberated and the testimonies of surviving Jews were told. As a response the allied nations promised justice, and pledged to prosecute those responsible for their war crimes.

Consequently Nazis sought to escape justice, and the gallows. In the confusion many gained new documents fraudulently by exploiting the Red Cross, who were overwhelmed by the shear numbers of refugees seeking safety, from across Europe. In this way thousands of Nazis gained entry to Britain and America.

However, many managed to make it to Italy, where it is believed the Vatican knowingly, via it’s refugee commission, issued many Nazis, including high raking SS officers, with false identities and documents enabling them to flee, many to South America and Franco’s Spain. Amongst those who managed escape justice were Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele.

No one knows the official reasons for the Vatican assisting these men, and even today the Vatican refuses to comment on this dark episode from it’s past. However, the acts of our past have a bearing on our present, the sins of the fathers are “punished” to the third and fourth generation.

Support Prophet TV as God continues to send us on missions to this area as Italy and the Vatican have a major influence on the future of Europe.

The Math of US Debt!

Sunday, 6 November 2011

The following email was sent to us… an interesting exercise in math:

A million dollars?

Just save $500 every week for the next 40 years.

To get to a billion dollars

You would have to save $500,000 dollars per week for 40 years.

And a trillion?

That would require $500 million every week for 40 years.

The sheer enormity is hard to grasp.

If the total cost of the “bailouts” are $12.8 Trillion, and the government added no new debt from now on —

that would mean 6.4BM – $6,150,000,000 a week would have to be “paid back” for 40 years in order to pay it all the debt, and

without paying any compounded interest: principle only.


Then I found out that during FY 2010, the federal government collected $2.16 trillion in tax revenue. (80% income &SS tax, 10% corporate. 10% other).

So if the US government closed down all services and spent every penny it brings in from our taxes,  just to service the debt of the one bailout,  it works out to about 1 billion a week for 40 years. oh, at ZERO interest.

and that will never add up.

they spent 10X what they bring in a year, just in the one bailout.

Ironic we can all see the economic bomb sitting there, but cannot hear the ticking,

or know when it will blow – but the numbers dictate it must, and soon.

please respond if you can explain how these conclusions are mis-calculated —

I want to be very very wrong.

….and a final point:

US GDP is reported to be about $15,000,000,000,000/yr — that’s $288 billion a week.

We live in the wealthiest country the world has ever known, by a large margin.

(Next is China at 5.8 tr, over 50% smaller)

But the government has had almost endless debt spending since 1953 — even with the huge amount of actual wealth generated, they will not stop overspending – will not keep a balanced budget,  ever.

We must have a balanced budget amendment, as many states do, or even if this is impossibly solved, it will be forever repeated.

They never will if we don’t force them – so it must be a constitutional amendment.

Keeping a balanced budget is common sense, practical, and common.

Only the reckless don’t.

It will take a year or two to come to pass once we all insist, but first we the people must constantly insist!

Finally, savings can and must be done immediately.

Trimming waste sounds like a good place to start.

Annual US government waste is now at an all-time high —

just our WASTE each year is now equal to the entire economy of Canada:

  1. The federal government made at least $72 billion in improper payments in 2008.[1]

  22. More than $13 billion in Iraq aid has been classified as wasted or stolen. Another $7.8 billion cannot be accounted for.[22]
  23. Fraud related to Hurricane Katrina spending is estimated to top $2 billion. In addition, debit cards provided to hurricane victims were used to pay for Caribbean vacations, NFL tickets, Dom Perignon champagne, “Girls Gone Wild” videos, and at least one sex change operation.[23]
  24. Auditors discovered that 900,000 of the 2.5 million recipients of emergency Katrina assistance provided false names, addresses, or Social Security numbers or submitted multiple applications.[24]
  25. Congress recently gave Alaska Airlines $500,000 to paint a Chinook salmon on a Boeing 737.[25]
  26. The Transportation Department will subsidize up to $2,000 per flight for direct flights between Washington, D.C., and the small hometown of Congressman Hal Rogers (R-KY) — but only on Monday mornings and Friday evenings, when lawmakers, staff, and lobbyists usually fly. Rogers is a member of the Appropriations Committee, which writes the Transportation Department’s budget.[26]
  27. Washington has spent $3 billion re-sanding beaches — even as this new sand washes back into the ocean.[27]
  28. A Department of Agriculture report concedes that much of the $2.5 billion in “stimulus” funding for broadband Internet will be wasted.[28]

  37. Congress appropriated $20 million for “commemoration of success” celebrations related to Iraq and Afghanistan.[37]
  38. Homeland Security employee purchases include 63-inch plasma TVs, iPods, and $230 for a beer brewing kit.[38]
  39. Two drafting errors in the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act resulted in a $2 billion taxpayer cost.[39]
  40. North Ridgeville, Ohio, received $800,000 in “stimulus” funds for a project that its mayor described as “a long way from the top priority.”[40]
  41. The National Institutes of Health spends $1.3 million per month to rent a lab that it cannot use.[41]
  42. Congress recently spent $2.4 billion on 10 new jets that the Pentagon insists it does not need and will not use.[42]
  43. Lawmakers diverted $13 million from Hurricane Katrina relief spending to build a museum celebrating the Army Corps of Engineers — the agency partially responsible for the failed levees that flooded New Orleans.[43]
  44. Medicare officials recently mailed $50 million in erroneous refunds to 230,000 Medicare recipients.[44]
  45. Audits showed $34 billion worth of Department of Homeland Security contracts contained significant waste, fraud, and abuse.[45]
  46. Washington recently spent $1.8 million to help build a private golf course in Atlanta, Georgia.[46]

  48. Congressional investigators were able to receive $55,000 in federal student loan funding for a fictional college they created to test the Department of Education.[48]
  49. The Conservation Reserve program pays farmers $2 billion annually not to farm their land.[49]
  50. The Commerce Department has lost 1,137 computers since 2001, many containing Americans’ personal data.[50]


Pick the Low-Hanging Fruit


Because many of these examples of waste overlap, it is not possible to determine their exact total cost.

Yet it is evident that our government loses hundreds of billions of dollars annually on spending that most Americans would certainly call wasteful.

Lawmakers seeking to rein in spending and budget deficits should begin by eliminating this least justifiable spending.


French Satirical Magazine Fire Bombed

The French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, was fire-bombed this week, just after  our prophet mantle left the city.  The magazine planned an edition with an image of the prophet Mohammed and the caption, “100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter”. The magazine announced that Mohammed was the “guest editor” for the day, after Islamists made significant electoral gains in Tunisia and post Gaddafi Libya announced it will be run as an Islamic state, getting rid of regulations that do not conform to Islamic Sharia Law.

The Charlie Hebdo magazine Paris offices were completely destroyed by a “molotov cocktail” bomb. Their website was also hacked the same day and warning messages posted on its homepage in French and Turkish from Islamist extremists.

The attack raises serious questions about freedom of speech. With groups like the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), who aim to make western states legalize any “criticism” of Islam. The OIC, plan to lobby the UN as well as western governments to “criminalize” critics of Islam. If such laws were introduced, it would make it very difficult to say or print anything opposed to Islam, thereby gagging freedom of speech and the media globally.



Random Events, Free Will, Pre-destiny or Something Darker ?
