Only $29.97, saving you $15.00!

The "nuclear confrontation in Korea" will first break out, followed by the Israeli attack against the Palestinians, which fulfills Obadiah and Isaiah 34. Other wars will soon break out, thus giving the Global Elite their World War III!

Then, once Israel is triumphant over her Arab foes once again, the Arabs will turn to Russia, asking for President Putin to invade Israel with his more powerful Russian military, since the Arabs can simply not defeat the Jewish State by themselves. Even though Putin was planning to use the Russian military in a different manner, the Holy Spirit forces the Russian overlord "Gog" to "put a hook in his jaws" to turn him around to lead an attack against Israel in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.

Iran (Ancient Persia) will be destroyed by God as her forces assemble with Russian forces on the border of Israel, just as this Ezekiel prophecy foretold 2,600 years ago! (Amazing detail given in "Russian Bear Poised To Attack Israel")

The Rapture of the Church will occur somewhere along this time frame!

We tell this complete story in the three titles of this Combination Offer!

Christian, look up, for your Redemption draweth nigh!

Critical News Analysis

Two Breaking News Stories


A Pentagon study group has rocked the nation by its report that a ground invasion would be necessary to ensure that all of North Korea's nuclear warheads are secured.

NEWS BRIEF: "Securing North Korea nukes would require US ground invasion", Times of India, 11/5/2017

"WASHINGTON: The only certain way to locate and secure all North Korea's nuclear weapons sites would be via a US ground invasion, the Washington Post reported on Saturday, citing a letter from Pentagon officials sent to US lawmakers."

In all the lead-up to this point in the North Korean nuclear threat did anyone say anything about a ground invasion. This revelation changes nothing in the bottom line, but it does ratchet up the potential human cost to eliminate this 25-year-old boil.

But, the situation gets worse.

"It said the letter, reportedly written by the vice director of the Pentagon's Joint Staff, noted that such a conflict could prompt Pyongyang to deploy biological and chemical weapons."

This crisis continues to hold great threat to all of Asia and the United States, with some analysts believing that North Korean missiles can now reach Great Britain and Europe. Can you see how important it would have been had President William Clinton taking out the North Korean dictatorship in 1994, before the Hermit Kingdom amassed such an arsenal?

Is this why at least one American carrier strike forces is carrying 7,500 Marines?

NEWS BRIEF: "Trump sends second aircraft carrier to Korean Peninsula with 7500 marines aboard", Zero hedge News, ctober 13, 2017

"Just one week after uttering his now-infamous “this is the calm before the storm” statement to the press ahead of a dinner with military leaders, we now learn that President Trump has dispatched a second nuclear aircraft carrier, the USS Theodore Roosevelt, filled with 7,500 marines, to the Korean Peninsula. "

Remember, this crisis was planned right after World War II ended. Listen to the wording of this scripted crisis:

"The script is now written ... A hair-raising nuclear confrontation in Korea may ... threaten man's very survival." (Peter Lemesurier, 'The Armageddon Script", p. 223, 1981)

Saudi Arabia is in turmoil right now.

NEWS BRIEF: "Saudi Arabia blames Iran for Yemen missile launch toward Riyad: Warns it could be 'considered as an act of war'," Chicago Tribune, Nov 5, 2017

"The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen closed off the land, sea and air ports to the Arab world's poorest country early Monday after a rebel-fired ballistic missile targeted Riyadh, blaming the launch on Iran and warning it could be "considered as an act of war."

If Iran did, indeed, fire the missile toward the Saudi capital of Riyadh, that could trigger an all-out war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, a conflict for which Saudi Arabia has been planning since the New Middle East Map was published in a Pentagon magazine.

"The coalition's statement ramps up tensions between the ultraconservative Sunni kingdom and its Shiite rival Iran, both of which have interests in Yemen's yearslong conflict. The bloodshed continued Sunday as an Islamic State-claimed militant attack in Aden killed at least 17 people. In a statement, the coalition accused Iran of supplying Yemen's Houthi rebels and their allies with the missile launched Saturday toward the Saudi capital's international airport."

President Trump revealed that American intelligence believes that Iran just shot a missile at Saudi Arabia.

"President Donald Trump also was quick to blame Iran on Sunday. 'A shot was just taken by Iran, in my opinion, at Saudi Arabia. And our system knocked it down', Trump said, referring to the Patriot missile batteries Saudi Arabia purchased from the U.S."

If Iran wants to really trigger a war with Saudi Arabia, her military would be launching dozens of missiles at once at Riyadh so as to overcome the sophisticated missile defense system protecting the capital city.

Meanwhile, internal tensions exploded, as a number of very powerful Saudi princes are either killed or arrested!

NEWS BRIEF: "Saudi purge takes kingdom into unpredictable new era", Reuters News, Nov 6, 2017

"The wave of arrests and ministerial changes in Saudi Arabia at the weekend has fundamentally transformed the structure of the state as it has existed since the 1960s. Saudi Arabia has practiced a form of collective leadership since the death of the founder King Abdulazziz in 1953 and especially since the abdication of his son King Saud in 1964."

"The system was intended to avoid the concentration of too much power in any one branch of the family and give all the sons of the founding king a stake in it ... ut the system has been fundamentally altered in a number of important ways since the death of King Abdullah and the accession of King Salman in 2015 ... Control over all elements of the state has steadily consolidated power in the hands of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman."

"But in a fundamental breach with past practice, King Salman and his son have launched an anti-corruption campaign and arrested ministers and officials suspected of taking bribes and embezzlement.

The progressive removal of senior princes from government over the last three years, and now the wave of arrests of princes and ministers, is jeopardizing the safety and wealth of royal family members for the first time ..."

And, now, in addition to the systematic campaign to remove senior princes and to arrest many, we now see a helicopter crash which kills eight more!

NEWS BRIEF: "Saudi prince killed in helicopter crash near Yemen border: State TV", MSN News, 11/5/2017

"A Saudi prince was killed on Sunday when a helicopter with several officials on board crashed near the kingdom's southern border with war-torn Yemen ... The news channel Al-Ekhbariya announced the death of Prince Mansour bin Moqren, the deputy governor of Asir province and son of a former crown prince.

"It did not reveal the cause of the crash or the fate of the other officials aboard the aircraft."

Saudi Arabia realized in 2006 that Western Powers had sided by Shi'ite Muslims in the region rather than Sunni Muslims. Iran is Shi'ite and Saudi Arabia is Sunni. President George Bush began to favor Shi'ite forces in his Iraq war over Sunni, and in 2007, the Pentagon issued a "New Middle East Map", a portion of which is pictured below.

Notice how badly Saudi Arabia is cut up and reduced in power.

This supposed American ally suffers grievous loss of territory according to President Bush's new map. She gives up land on all parts of her current border.

* She gives up land on the Red Sea so Jordan can be expanded

* She gives up land on the Persian Gulf so Iraq's Shia State can be created

* She gives up land to the south so Yemen can be expanded. From time to time, we have posted articles to Daily News Updates where American forces are fighting rebels in that country. Perhaps we shall have to be more vigilant in paying attention to Yemen.

The incredible fact is that, if this map is implemented, Saudi Arabia will be stripped of almost all her access to the ocean -- both on the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf! This reality must mean that some other nation is going to control Saudi Arabia's oil export terminals! How can the Saudis tolerate this violation of her sovereignty.

Another reason for war.

* Most shockingly, Saudi Arabia is going to be stripped of all management and control over the Islamic Sacred Sites! I cannot imagine any Saudi leader voluntarily giving up control of the Islamic sacred sites! Perhaps this map is the reason Saudi leaders recently received Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for the first time in modern history! Perhaps this map is the reason Saudi leaders are fighting the most serious outbreak of rebellion in any country other than in Iraq.

Carving up these major countries so as to create new, smaller ones, and deprive the current major countries of much political power is a concept very much in keeping with the concept offered in "The Pentagon's New Map" (NEWS1833). You see, strong dictators can impede the global integration progress so severely they need to be removed. Powerful traditional countries can impede progress toward a truly global system so harshly they need to be carved up.

The fact is that Western armies since Bush's invasion of Afghanistan (2001) and of Iraq (2003) have removed or fatally weakened every major entrenched dictator in the region except for Saudi Arabia. Her long-lasting dictatorship must be overthrown so that Super Nation #7 can be implemented.

Supernation #7 is Northern Africa and the Middle East. Once Saudi Arabia is overthrown then there is no individual dictator left who can resist the pressure of the Global Elite to surrender national sovereignty and start serving the rulers of Super Nation #7.


Original Stories

1. A Liberal, atheist radical dressed in full combat gear, walked into the Baptist Church in Sutherland, Texas, and opened fire on a helpless congregation!

NEWS BRIEF: "At least 26 killed in mass shooting at Texas church", Fox News, 11/5/2017

"At least 26 people were killed and 20 wounded in Texas after a gunman dressed in tactical gear opened fire at a church outside San Antonio on Sunday, investigators confirmed. Multiple sources... identified the gunman as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley. The mass shooting unfolded around 11:30 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio."

"Sunday's massacre is the deadliest church shooting in modern U.S. history. It is also, according to Gov. Greg Abbott, the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history."

And, once again, a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy with a gun, who is returning fire!

He killed at least 26, wounded 30, before fleeing a shooter returning fire with his registered rifle.

NEWS BRIEF: "Texas Gun Owner Stopped Church Shooting Rampage", The Daily Caller, 11/5/2017

"A church shooting in Sutherland Texas was stopped after a local gun owner grabbed his rifle and began returning fire at the shooter, police announced Sunday ... Kelly killed at least 26 people before an unidentified gun owner forced him to flee by grabbing his own rifle and returning fire, Texas Rangers announced Sunday."

The Pastor of this church lost his 14-year-old daughter!

NEWS BRIEF: "Pastor's 14-year-old daughter among dead in Texas church shooting", ABC Eyewitness News, 11/6/2017

"SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas -- The pastor of the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where dozens were killed and dozens more injured when a man walked into the building and opened fire, said his 14-year-old daughter is among the dead."

"First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy said he was not at the church Sunday morning when the shooting took place. His youngest daughter, Annabelle, was. Pomeroy said he was in Oklahoma at the time ... According to Pomeroy, every one of his family's close friends is among the deceased."

2. Instantly, Liberals began to call for increased government Gun Control! Bodies of the victims were not even cold before the Gun Control Lobby began calling for more gun control!

NEWS BRIEF: "Dems renew calls for gun control in wake of Texas church shooting", The Hill, 11/5/2017

"Democrats are renewing their calls for gun reform after reports of a mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday ... Sens. Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.), Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.) were among the Democrats who urged Congress to act in response to the latest deadly shooting."

" 'The shooter turned his gun on people -- kids -- in a place of worship. America is in the grips of a gun violence crisis. Congress must act', Durbin tweeted."

"Harris, a possible 2020 presidential contender, also condemned 'senseless gun violence' after the shooting ... When do we say enough is enough?"

""Enough is enough," Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said in a series of tweets. "Now is the time for commonsense gun violence prevention steps. Congressional complicity must end."

"Sens. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) also joined their colleagues in condemning the lack of action. 'When will this end? When will we decide that we can’t accept massacres in our places of worship, schools, or at concerts? When will we actually do something about it?' Feinstein wrote in a statement."

What kind of increased legislation will cut down on gun violence and not so disarm the people that the planned dictatorship of the New World Order can quickly disband our Constitution and impose a strict dictatorship?

NEWS BRIEF: "Celebrities Immediately Call for Gun Control Following Texas Church Shooting", Breitbart News, 5 Nov 2017

"Celebrities took to Twitter to call for increased gun control measures almost immediately after news broke of the shooting at a Sutherland Springs, Texas church on Sunday ...

* Horror novelist Stephen King was quick to call for new gun laws: "How many more have to die before we enact sane gun control laws?"

* King’s gun control push was echoed by comedian and actress Sarah Silverman: "When a plane crashes, air travel becomes exponentially safer bc of the lessons learned. But 1 mass shooting after another...nothing."

* "And actor Josh Gad: "Terror attack that kills 6 gets travel bans same day; Deadliest mass shooting & deadliest church shooting ever get prayers & 2 soon to talk."

* "Comedian and former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler blamed the attack on Republicans: 'Innocent people go to church on Sunday to honor their God, and while doing so, get shot in killed. What country? America. Why? Republicans."

* Meanwhile, actor Timothy Simons blamed the attack on the NRA: '.@nra you are a terrorist organization. you aid, abet, and protect terrorists."

One citizen was quick to reply: "Actually 0 mass shootings have been caused by @NRA members"


Is America reaching the point of mental weariness, where a strong majority would agree to strict gun control, even if they did not really believe it?


3. Former Democratic Party Chairwomen, Donna Brazile, is publishing a book whose contents are so explosive that it is throwing the Hillary Clinton camp into utter chaos.

Brazile's revelations might also throw the Virginia Governor race to the Republicans!

NEWS BRIEF: "Shocking Donna Brazile expose' drives Hillary camp into chaos: May throw crucial Virginia governor race to the GOP", Fox News, 11/5/2017

"Donna Brazile's scathing review of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign sent more shock waves this weekend through the Democratic Party, with members eager to bury the Clinton era ahead of Tuesday’s key Virginia governor’s race and other upcoming elections."

Donna is proving that she is no body's fool nor is she willing to shut up and look the other direction of the Clinton criminal empire.

" 'Those telling me to shut up … I tell them, 'Go to hell.' I’m gonna tell my story,” Brazile, who ran the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 White House race ... Brazile roiled the political world on Thursday when she published excerpts in Politico of her upcoming book that detailed a 2015 money deal between the Clinton campaign and the DNC that made winning the party’s presidential nomination nearly impossible for any other Democratic candidate."

"According to the review, Brazile, who is African-American, also said she felt the campaign treated her like a “slave” and that she considered replacing Clinton with then-Vice President Joe Biden, after Clinton passed out during a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City."

Brazile's revelations are not only damning to Hillary Clinton and the entire Democrat Party that some observers are worrying openly that the Virginia governor election this week might turn in the favor of the Republican candidate!

This electoral surprise is coming too close to the Virginia election for any "spin-meister" to be able to counter its political fallout.

Hillary responded by launching an attack on Brazile that sounded like a third-grade student had written it.

NEWS BRIEF: "Hillary’s Campaign Accuses Donna Brazile Of Spreading ‘False Russian-Fueled Propaganda’," The Daily Caller, 11/5/2017

"Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign responded to former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Donna Brazile’s criticisms of the Clinton campaign, including the charge the campaign essentially rigged the 2016 primaries. 'It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health', reads a letter published online Saturday that was signed by former Clinton campaign officials, including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, Jennifer Palmieri and John Podesta."

Haven't these Hillary Democrats realized yet that the American people are not buying the "Russians are coming" argument?


4. Radical Feminists have captured the historic Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, and are removing a plaque honoring President George Washington!

NEWS BRIEF: "Christ Church, Virginia Out with George Washington, In With 'Mother' God," Prophecy News Watch, 11/2/2017

"At Christ Church of Alexandria, Virginia, where the motto is "All are welcome, no exceptions," the board of vestry has decided it can no longer tolerate a plaque dedicated to the memory of its most famous member, George Washington. That's right, George Washington himself was one of the founding members of Christ Church, which is affiliated with the Episcopal Church USA. He purchased pew No. 5 when the church opened in 1773 and attended for more than 20 years whenever he rode north from Mount Vernon to do business in town."

Why would a plaque honoring President George Washington be deemed so offensive that it must be taken down? Has Political Correctness aimed at the legacy of anyone who owned slaves reached even to our First President?

"But on Sunday, the church announced it will soon be removing a memorial plaque placed along the front wall in Washington's honor, saying he has become so controversial that his plaque is "chasing away would-be parishioners..."

Rev. Ann Gillespie closed a sermon with a New Age version of the Apostle's Creed which will curl your hair and reveal how deep the prophesied Christian Church apostasy has become.

"The Episcopal Church USA has given itself over to a 'Mother Earth' form of Christianity that preaches tolerance and inclusivity for everything accept what some might consider traditional, biblical Christianity. The Christ Church of Alexandria is so inclusive that it does not have a single male pastor listed on its website. All four are women. One of them, the Rev. Ann Gillespie, is a former Hollywood actress who recently closed a sermon with a new version of the Apostle's Creed."

Now, get ready for a severe Biblical shock as we report this exceedingly offensive creed;

" 'I believe in God, our Mother Bear, source of all being', and it refers to the Virgin Mary as 'the bad-ass womanist liberation theologian, Mary'."

This statement blends together Mother Gaia earth worship, the New Age doctrines and even Communism!

Antichrist can arise now that the Christian Church has fallen into such Apostasy! Listen:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (day Antichrist arises) shall not come, except there come a falling away first ..." (2 Thessalonians 2:3, KJV)

This prophesied "falling away" is now a tsunami sweeping mankind toward the Abyss!


5. Antifa radicals nationwide are planning a series of protests in various cities, dmonstrations which will not quit until President Trump is removed from office.

If this goal sounds familiar, it should, because it is the stated goal of Illuminati Billionaire George Soros.

NEWS BRIEF: "Antifa Rallies Planned in at Least 20 U.S. Cities — Won’t ‘Stop Until This Regime Driven from Power’," Breitbart News, 3 Nov 2017

"The left-wing, Antifa Refuse Fascism group is planning rallies in at least 20 cities across the United States on Saturday to demand that the duly-elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence be 'driven from power'.”

November 4 rallies fell short of participants from the numbers organizers were wanting, but there will be other rallies which will draw larger crowds. And, remember, only a few radicals can start a riot.



The world is trembling at the prospect of several wars and internal disputes flaring at once. Let us review:

1. North Korea vs the World -- danger of nuclear disaster in South Korea, Japan, Guam, the United States, Great Britain and Europe. Thoroughly covered in our DVD, "World War III: History's Greatest Lynchpin Event".

2. Israel vs the Palestinians -- Israel is ready to annihilate all Palestinians as foretold 2,600 years ago in Obadiah and in Isaiah 34. Thoroughly covered in our DVD, "Israel's Prophesied Victory Over The Palestinians".

3. Saudi Arabia engages in war which results in her complete defeat at the hands of Iranian-led forces. Thoroughly covered in our DVD, "Bringing Saudi Arabia Down"!

4. China invades Taiwan

5. China and India battle over their disputed territories.

NEWS BRIEF: "Chinese and Indian troops face off in Bhutan border dispute"

6. Antifa and other radical groups begin their planned rioting in American cities

7. Economic collapse will occur. People will not want to hear that this collapse is temporary and will bve quickly reversed once World War III has produced Antichrist.

The new economy will be Global, with a Global Cashless Currency -- just as the Book of Revelation foretold 1,900 years ago.
