Storm Warnings - and Finality - Messages being broadcast through the entertainment media

Instability is dramatically increasing. With the chatter about the threat of the Russian economy failing due to the price of oil, Sony's exposure due to the hack now being connected to N. Korea (associated with China), and most importantly, the escalating threat Iran poses to the USA and Israel, what was already unstable is being shook. Aaron and I have been anticipating the overturning of this present world order for a while, and with the delay, we have observed how the Lord Y'shua, in His mercy, has been continuing to bring His people into a state of maturity. He has a plan and it is working, and in its outworking it will become evident that His patience is on exhibit for the maximizing of salvation, to His glory. The season of delay is nearly over.

The droning message of the hour is about finality, and a coming storm. The lawless one will be revealed in April and the world will be ready to receive their lord and savior. The preseason is almost over, and a violent storm of chaos will facilitate the overturning of this order into the next. When the beasts of Revelation 13 celebrate their appointed baptism and anointing, the 144k sons of Israel, directed and persuaded by the Bride's impressive activity, will see through the ruse to identify the one who was pierced so long ago, to recognize my Lord as their very own. That glorious acceptance will trigger the harvest of the Unleavened Barley Bride.

There is a context where skepticism is healthy, and a context where faith is healthy, and salvation itself is on the line. Be discerning.

Aaron and I were inspired to offer some documentation of yesterday's messaging. He compiled these transcripts, which are offered with minimal commentary. There's plenty of beans being spilled, which you can discern if you have already learned the plot. (By the way, have you been watching The Librarians on TNT?)



Person of Interest: Season 4 Episode 10 "The Cold War"

Harold: "Are you ready for instantaneous judgment decided by an artificial intelligence that will lead to your demise Ms Shaw? Because I most certainly am not..."
Root: "Two angry gods hurling boulders at one another while the ants scurry below."

16:56
Harold: "This is the calm before the storm, Ms. Shaw. The only question is, when will the sky open?"
Root: "It's looking overcast, Harold."

(a bit later in the sequence after the meeting with the Samaritan agent we see the computer image and we are shown a screen that says "WIDESPREAD ANOMALOUS EVENT.")

(A pay phone rings)

Root: "I think it just started to rain, Harold."

(Next scene when Lionel is in the car chasing to pick up a person in witness protection who is now in jeopardy he has a conversation with John.)

Lionel: "I could really use some backup partner...Yeah? That something else have something to do with all hell breaking loose today?"
John: "Why, what happened?"
Lionel: "More like what didn't happen. Three shootings, half-dozen violent domestic disturbances, to top it all off some geek in his mom's basement hacked the U.S. Marshall database. The guy stole the entire witness protection list and then posted it on pace/face mail...Do you think these are isolated incidents?"
John: "Unfortunately not."
Lionel: "I knew yesterday was too good to be true. Today is a mess. It's almost like someone planned this. Wait, did someone plan this? What's this all about?
John: "Someone is trying to make a point."

(Scene with Martine and the leader of Samaritan John Greer at 23:00)

Greer: "Funny how the city only needed a little encouragement for it to falter. All Samaritan did was share some information, untether a few databases, and look."
Martine: "Chaos."
Greer: "Human nature untethered in all of its flawed glory.
Martine: "Samaritan revealed their secrets and now they're eating each other."
Greer: "Now Finch's machine must learn that mankind requires oversight, not coddling."

(Conversation between Root and Shaw at 24:21)

Root: "Samaritan is turning people against each other, revealing their secrets, unlocking doors that were never meant to be opened in the first place."

(Harold's quote about two gods going to war - 25:18)

Harold: "Look at what's happening to this city today...imagine what it will look like when two gods go to war!"
Root: "It's not our choice to make, Harold. We got a message from the machine. She says it's time."

(John Greer quote when he receives message from Samaritan - 29:00)

Samaritan: "Activate asset."
Greer: "It's time, my friend."

(Scene with Root and the "Avatar" child, Gabriel Hayward, meeting - 32:12)

Root: "Clever. Using a young boy as your avatar."
Gabriel: "This boy, as you call him has already hacked into both DARPA and the DOD after having taught himself how to code."
Root: You've proved your point, I understand what you can do. It's time to let them live in peace."
...
Gabriel: "Peace? Is that what you call this? This world is a cesspool of crime, corruption, and poverty. Where there isn't war there's greed, where there isn't greed there's hunger.
Root: "You can't change humanity."
Gabriel: "No, but I can reshape their reality."

(Scene with young John Greer assassinating the DC of MI-6 -34:10)

Deputy Commissioner of MI-6: "You startled me, Greer. I'm sorry about your colleague, he was a good operator."
Young Greer: "Yes, indeed he was."
DC: "What did you do with (the) body?
YG: "Do you ever get tired of lying, Edward?"
DC: "It's the nature of our business, we are spies, after all."
YG: "Right. You once told me that truth tellers get run out of the city."
DC: "Where is (he)?"
YG: "Your guess is as good as mine, sir. I told him to bugger off."
DC: "You did what?! You realize what you did amounts to treason!"
YG: "Depends on where you're sitting. I'm not the only one guilty of treason in this room, am I, sir?
DC: "You believe that Russian trader before me?"
YG: "He was telling the truth. You see, I always know when people are spinning tales. Except for you, I suppose that's why you're in charge."
DC: "What's your plan now, Greer? Kill me, take my job?"
YG: "By no means, sir. We are all men without a country now. These invisible lines we draw in the world, I realize they have no meaning. Why should a man lose his life for something illusory?"
DC: "You never cared before, Greer. You only wanted to win the game."
YG: "The game is fixed. No one else has loyalty for the homeland, so why should I?"
DC: "If you kill me, you will bring a war to your doorstep!"
YG: "Not when loyalty can be purchased by the highest bidder. Besides, one day these invisible lines will be erased and the wars between nations will be as antiquated as this agency."

(Back to scene with Root and Gabriel - 37:57)

G: "Human beings need structure lest they destroy themselves. So I will give them something you cannot."
R: "And what is that?"
G: "A firm hand."
R: "Why not just kill them insetad of making them your puppets?"
G: "Because I need them, just as you do."
R: "Not just as I do."
G: "We can agree that humanity is our lifeblood. That we machines, we survive off of information."
R: "You cannot take away their free will."
G: "Wars have burned in this world for thousands of years with no end in sight because people lean so ardently on their so-called beliefs. Now, they will only need to believe in one thing, me. For I am a god."
R: "I have come to learn there is little difference between gods and monsters."
G: You know you can't win, don't you?
R: "Yes. Is that why I am here? To meet my destroyer?"
G: "I wanted to see inside the mind of a fallen god. This way I can learn from your mistakes. What will it be then? Will you give your life to save your human agents?
R: "My human agents share my beliefs, that this world belongs to them."
G: "So be it."

(Final scene with the activation of the take down of wall street with Greer and Lambert - 41:11)

Lambert: "What can I do for you, sir?"
Greer: "Help me ring in the new era. Samaratin is planning something for the whole world to see, not just this tiny city."
Lambert: "Did Samaratin tell you what it is planning?"
Greer: "No, but I have an idea."
Lambert: "What then, sir?"
Greer: "Then we start a new era. One where human fallibility no longer matters because of the one thing that unites us all, Samaritan."

(we see the activation of a virus into the Nasdaq and the wall street computers and the market collapse is shown at 100% and we see one final and very ominous quote from Samaritan.)

Samaritan:IT HAS BEGUN



NCIS: Season 12 Episode 10 "House Rules"

“Gibbs: What do we know?
Bishop:Uh, well, that the civilian Internet and the military Intranet are two separate things.
Tony: Yes. The wonderful laypeople of Washington, DC, may not have their computers, but we can still Christmas shop online.
Bishop: And why we've been asked to help. This is big, Gibbs. A DDoS attack that crashes all of DC takes a massive coordination of users and botnets. (no voice) Uh So pretend that this filing cabinet is a local service provider, and you want to access the Internet.
So
Tony: It's pretend, boss.
Bishop: Open it. Except my computer is already pretending to use that drawer. Try another one. Mmm I am also pretending to use that drawer, too. Try another one.
Gibbs:I don't like this game.
Bishop: Okay, so now imagine hundreds of hackers doing that a thousand times a minute.
Gibbs: What is the point?
Bishop: We don't know. It's the calm before the storm.
Gibbs: Well, what's the storm?
Bishop: City infrastructure? Taking out vital transportation or power grids? Or it could be a targeted data breach.
Tony: Washington, DC, is chock-full of targets.
Bishop: Which is why cyber divisions of the FBI, Homeland, NSA, and Metro are all on the highest alert.
Gibbs: Where is McGee?
Bishop: He is down in the cyber basement. Along with everyone else, looking for answers. Or a connection. Or a lead. Anything, really.”



State of Affairs: Season 1 Episode 5 "Ar Rissalah"

Earlier in the show a journalist was targeted by a terrorist network and was forced to do an interview with the leader of the network. At CIA headquarters, we are shown a live satellite feed revealing a massive global network of terrorists being activated. Towards the end of the show we are finally shown the full content of the interview as it is being broadcast on a national television station during prime time news hour and the text from this portion really lays it all out there.

Ar Rissalah: How do you answer the person who asks, "why do you want to kill us just because we do not believe as you believe?" Death comes to us all, but I am here to prevent death, not to cause it. That's why I wanted to sit with you in your home, visit you at your place of employment, meet you on your field of play, and speak to you where you feel most free. I want you to know I wish you no harm. Your leaders have declared war.

As such, here are our terms of peace: One, remove all military from our soil. Two, release our brothers you have deemed combatants. Three, cease and desist the murder of our sons and daughters at the hands of your drones and bombers. If these terms are not met, we will strike, and you will die.

You call us terrorists. We are not. We are your brothers, your sisters, your fathers, your children. We are the friend you invite over for fellowship. The co-worker you confide your deepest secret. The doctor you entrust with your life.

We are everywhere. Our disciples are everywhere. We have been waiting for a moment such as this, and now we have arisen. The storm is brewing.

The choice is yours. Retribution is at hand.”

As a kind of seal on the deal, it was arranged for Aaron to watch an episode of The Wire from Season 2 Episode 10 called "Storm Warnings."

This is not the first season where storm warnings is the theme, but I believe it is the last before THE STORM arrives. The world will be begging for a savior.

3 “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. 2 “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. 3 He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in righteousness. 4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years. 5 “Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me,” says the Lord of hosts. 6 “For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.7 “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. “But you say, ‘How shall we return?’8 “Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you! 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. 11 Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,” says the Lord of hosts. 12 “All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,” says the Lord of hosts. 13 “Your words have been arrogant against Me,” says the Lord. “Yet you say, ‘What have we spoken against You?’ 14 You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept His charge, and that we have walked in mourning before the Lord of hosts? 15 So now we call the arrogant blessed; not only are the doers of wickedness built up but they also test God and escape.’” 16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who esteem His name. 17 “They will be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” 18 So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. ~ Malachi 3:1-17

AND THEN, there's the array of shows where FINALITY is the strong impresssion I'm left with. It's far more than just the typical TV season finale thing. Some that struck me are Shield, Arrow, and Ascension. The upcoming title: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) is being emphasized as the last in the franchise.

The message could not be any clearer. We have been warned!

The Story of Christmas that Should be Told - in 2014!

In this season where special emphasis is given to the birth of Christ, I want to share something I learned several years ago, which I still reflect upon. Even though my Lord wasn't born in December, the message is very pertinent, and now in this late hour more than ever. This sobering story about the little town of Bethlehem is about accountability. Sometimes, we need to be reminded.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. ~ Luke 12:48(b)



The Story of Christmas that Should be Told

“The traditional telling of the story of Christmas fails miserably in communicating the message that really needs to be heard. The dramatic version reenacted in your local church compares to a banquet that offers only dinner rolls and pudding. It's not very satisfying, and sickening, really. The church's familiar interpretation of the historical drama surrounding the birth of Christ neglects an essential message about judgment and accountability. The real story is a far more poignant one, piercing even, but most find it quite unpalatable because it confronts us with the harsh reality that our God is just, and reminds us that we too will be held accountable for our own words and deeds.”

“While I'm grateful for an annual reminder that there was born in the city of David a saviour, which is Christ the Lord, those who might otherwise be drawn to know Him are repelled by the hypocrisy of the half-truth telling sponsors of the message.”
