The dark side of 'the resistance'

Joe Kovacs rips the mask off the force behind rebellion
First published March 2019--rings even more true today!
By Joe Kovacs

Since the presidential election of 2016, the one in which a political outsider by the name of Donald Trump came from seemingly out of nowhere to become the highest elected official in the land, the powers that be who thought they were in control have been on a mission that can be summed up in a single word.


Those who oppose the agenda of President Trump (and his supporters, for that matter) have made no secret about the fact they're looking to staunchly withstand anything and everything proffered by this commander in chief.

In fact, in 2017, shortly after Trump's inauguration, they initiated a national campaign called "Resistance Summer," seeking "to bring Americans together to resist the powers that are trying to rig the system against working families. Our work is inspired and influenced by 60 years of civil rights organizing and resistance. We're hiring organizers across the country to build the Democratic resistance."

Trump himself has taken notice, saying on Halloween 2018, "Their whole theme: Obstruct. Resist. What the hell do you get out of that?"

We have seen the resistance manifest in all kinds of ways, ranging from name-calling and harsh rhetoric to people getting shot because of their political viewpoint. Here are some high-profile examples since Trump won the presidency:

Pop star Madonna said in a march in Washington, D.C.: "I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything."

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, merely because she works for President Trump.

A Julius Caesar play was reworked to have a Donald Trump look-alike getting repeatedly stabbed instead of Caesar.

Actor Robert De Niro had not-so pleasant words in his resistance of Trump, saying, "I'd like to punch him in the face," and then on national TV saying, "I'm going to say one thing: F*** Trump."

Stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin held up a bloody, severed head that was made to look like a decapitated version of Trump during a photoshoot. She now sells a line of merchandise all proclaiming "F*** Trump."

Aides and advisers to Trump have been investigated for alleged collusion with Russia, with some admitting to or being convicted of crimes as a result of a special counsel probe.

A supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shot Republican Congressman Steve Scalise and four others on a Virginia baseball field, as the gunman was allegedly looking to kill his political opponents.

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., had a less-than-civil call to action to resisters: "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere!"

Brett Kavanaugh, after being nominated by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, faced severe resistance with claims of attempted sexual assault by a woman who could not remember key details of the alleged incident.

Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder said of Republicans, "When they go low, we kick 'em."

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended Democrat tactics of fierce resistance, saying: "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about."

These are just a few of the well-known comments and incidents.

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh  discussed the resistance to Trump, noting: "They call this the resistance, but this isn't resistance. We're so far beyond resistance now. These people are doing much more than resisting. They are literally turning the law upside down. They are ignoring the law when it applies to them. They are accusing people who have not broken the law of having broken the law and forcing those people to either cop pleas or defend themselves, and, in the process, go broke and lose their homes, destroy their families. All of this on no evidence that anything of the original charge that the election was tampered with and is therefore illegitimate, there's no evidence for it.

"It continues unabated. And as these people fail in every element that they try to get rid of Trump, what then happens? Trump becomes even worse. Trump is Hitler. Trump is no different than Mao Tse-tung. Trump is hideous. They keep throwing out these inane, insane, crazy allegations in their unstopping attempt, their never-ending attempt to create anti-Trump public opinion which will then facilitate them getting what they want, and that is him thrown out of office."

Now that everyone is well aware of the resistance, you might wonder about its source. After all, the viciousness is taking place at numerous levels across America and appears to be highly organized. And while there may be big-name politicians and plenty of money being spent to feed this vitriolic behavior, there is likely something else at work here you may not have realized.

There is an unseen player who is doing what he does best, resist. In fact, his name means "Resister."

The individual I'm referring to is none other than Satan the devil. Yes, the Hebrew word Satan actually means "an adversary, one who resists."

I realize most people in today's modern world don't think about this character as they carry on their everyday life, going to work, paying the bills and raising their family. But Satan is a very real individual, who is actually resisting and opposing all those who are trying to be obedient to God and His divine laws.

In case you're not familiar with the Bible, Satan was not always an enemy. In fact, Scripture says he was a cherub, which is an angel, and a perfect one at that.

As God says of him: "You were an anointed guardian cherub, for I had appointed you." (Ezekiel 28:14)

The very next line in Scripture indicates all was well with him until something foul was detected in his character.

"From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you." (Ezekiel 28:15)

Chapter after chapter of the Bible describe what wickedness is, and it can be summed up in a word that virtually everyone is familiar with, but they're not quite sure what it means. And that word is "sin."

You can try this experiment for yourself, asking a variety of people what the definition of sin is. You'll most likely get a different answer from each individual. But there is one place in the Bible where the meaning of the word is clearly spelled out. That verse is in the New Testament, in 1 John 3:4. Here it is from two translations:

sin is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4 KJV)

sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4 CSB)

Simply put, when anyone breaks any law or instruction from God, that person is sinning, engaging in wickedness, iniquity or evil. It's as simple as that. Opposing God and doing what He says not to do is an act of RESISTANCE or rebellion against the Maker of everything.

Thus, Satan, the original resister, was perfectly fine in God's eyes until he resisted and engaged in thoughts and activities contrary to the laws of God. He became wicked by resisting and rebelling against God.

As Job explained, "The wicked are those who rebel against the light. They do not recognize its ways or stay on its paths." (Job 24:13 CSB)

And since "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5), the Bible makes it more than obvious that rebelling against the light (God) is wicked.

Satan has been leading a rebellion against God, convincing a large number angels to join him in his resistance.

"So the great dragon was thrown out ​— ​the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him." (Revelation 12:9 CSB)

The resister has been hard at work using all kinds of lies and deception to trick mankind, confusing people on virtually every issue, from the existence of God Himself to the ultimate destiny of human beings, which is to become part of God's own family, the children of God, to rule and reign with Him for eternity.

Satan has been resisting for thousands of years, and there's no indication he'll give up his rebellion and repent of his wickedness, even though a main message of Jesus is to love your enemies. Yes, we're told to love those who resist.

Perhaps what we're seeing in our physical world today in America is a picture of what God has dealt with for a very long time: the individuals He created are acting in a stiff-necked fashion resisting peace, law and order. We see lawlessness all around us, and even some groups are targeting law-enforcement agencies as somehow being oppressive, when the opposite is true. It's the ones who want to maintain law and order who are being attacked, in the same way God is the ultimate Lawman dealing with wicked opposition from those who don't wish to obey His instructions.

The apostle Paul reminded everyone: "So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God's command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves." (Romans 13:2 CSB)

We all need to realize the world as we know it is not going to last forever. There is a time coming soon that God will be fed up with humanity's resistance and rejection of His ways, and He will put an end it to it in a fashion that won't be pretty.

As one famous prophet predicted: "There will be a time of distress such as never has occurred since nations came into being until that time." (Daniel 12:1 CSB)

It might be wise if we ask ourselves if today's so-called "resistance movement" is a manifestation of what's taking place in the unseen realm. Is it a picture of the demonic resistance by the devil against God Himself, for perceived injustice of some kind?

If it is, then we should be careful to make sure we're always on God's side, and never resist our loving Creator.

John Oliver mocked Trump in 2017 for predicting removal of Washington, Jefferson statues

President Trump warned in 2017 that statues of U.S. Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson might someday be removed -- three years ahead of attacks on such statues this month.

Back then, "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver mocked the president for his grim prediction.

“So this week it's Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down,” Trump said at an August 2017 news conference on the protests that year in Charlottsville, Va., that sparked from the plans to remove some Confederate statues.

Not All Blacks Fought For The Union!

Buried under the fluttering Confederate flag: Daughter of black slave who fought FOR Southern forces in Civil War is buried more than 150 years after her father went to war

Mattie Rice Clyburn, 91, (top right) was buried today in Monroe, North Carolina. She was the daughter of Weary Clyburn, who died in 1922, and saved his Confederate master's life in 1861. He was just 19 when he went to fight in the Civil War (bottom right), and, after a long fight by his daughter, he was officially recognized as a participant in the struggle. She was buried today in the same plot as him, under the flags of the Confederacy and South Carolina, her father's home state (left).  Continue: Buried under the fluttering Confederate flag: Daughter of black slave who fought FOR Southern forces in Civil War is buried more than 150 years after her father went to war

How the 1964 Civil Rights Act cost Black America

Forward: Queers think they have a right to demand businesses to bake them cakes, using the civil rights laws of the 60's as a guideline.  Just when did your rights of a business owner not mirror your rights as a citizen.  For example, you can now discriminate who you allow into your own home, or which family members can come to your family picnic, but the second you start a business, you loose these same rights you have for your personal life.  It isn't constitutional, but it is the law today.  We think these laws a good, yet history shows us for every movement, there is a counter result.  I mean nobody could argue that the 1964 rights act was bad for black Americans right?   WRONG!  The law decimated black owned businesses and communities and led to the situational poverty among blacks today.  Don't believe me, here is an article from a black writer from a black magazine called The New African.   You would think some racist white southern bigot wrote this. You may think so, but the writer is absolutely correct in the points and facts presented.....

Leslie Goffe

  image from newafricanmagazine.comAs a result of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the black middle class were able to live wherever they wanted and could afford. Consequently, they fled inner city areas like Chicago’s South Side and Washington DC’s U Street Corridor neighbourhoods where they had been safe from the hostile white world. They were drawn to the white suburbs. 

The black neighbourhoods had established black-owned cinemas, black-run churches and black mutual aid societies, but the black middle class gave up this black independence for the chance to move into America’s lilywhite suburbs. They were eager to live in the integrated America that Dr Martin Luther King Jnr. had spoken so eloquently, and tantalisingly, of in his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington.

7,708 Die in America EVERY DAY -- The Plain Truth about Coronavirus

Bob Barney

Lies"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." The phrase was popularized in the United States by Mark Twain and never a truer quote for today's insanity and deep state lies over the so-called coronavirus pandemic! 

In America today, almost 3 million people die each year, or when broken down, about 7,708.22 a day to be exact. Around 74% of all deaths in the United States occur as a result of 10 causes. Over the past 5 years, the main causes of death in the U.S. have remained fairly consistent, and coronavirus isn''t even a knit on a knat's ass. Remember so far this year, a little over 95,000 have died (probably, maybe) of this virus.  During the same time, some 893,000 others have died from all other causes.  Let's look at the top 10 American deaths as a whole year (2017 stats):

1) Heart Disease led deaths by  647,457

  • Percentage of total deaths: 23.5%

2) Cancer:

  • Deaths in 2017: 599,108
  • Percentage of total deaths: 21.3%

3)  Unintentional injuries:

  • Deaths in 2017: 169,936
  • Percentage of total deaths: 6%

4) Chronic lower respiratory disease

  • Deaths in 2017: 160,201
  • Percentage of total deaths: 5.7%

Chronic lower respiratory disease refers to a group of lung conditions that block the airflow and cause breathing-related issues. These diseases include:

5). Stroke and cerebrovascular diseases

  • Deaths in 2017: 146,383
  • Percentage of total deaths: 5.2%

Cerebrovascular diseases develop due to problems with the blood vessels that supply the brain.

Four of the most common cerebrovascular diseases are:

Every year, more than 795,000 people in the U.S. have a stroke. The risk of stroke varies with race, ethnicity, and age.

The highest death rates from stroke in the U.S. occur in the Southeast.

6) Alzheimer’s disease

  • Deaths in 2017: 121,404
  • Percentage of total deaths: 4.3%

7)   Diabetes

  • Deaths in 2017: 83,564
  • Percentage of total deaths: 3%

8).  Influenza and pneumonia... You know... the FLU!

  • Deaths in 2017: 55,672
  • Percentage of total deaths: 2%
  • Influenza, or flu, is a highly contagious viral infection. It is one of the most severe illnesses of the winter season.

    Flu spreads easily from person to person, usually when someone who carries the virus coughs or sneezes.

    A person can have the flu more than once, as many different strains of the virus can cause infection. They may belong to one of three different influenza families: A, B or C.

    Type A viruses tend to affect adults more severely, while type B viruses most often cause health problems in children. Type C viruses are fairly uncommon.

    Pneumonia, a serious condition that causes inflammation of the lungs, can cause complications in people who have the flu.

    Pneumonia causes the air sacs in the lungs to fill with pus and other fluids, preventing oxygen from reaching the bloodstream. If there is too little oxygen in the blood, the body’s cells cannot function. This can be fatal.

9)     Kidney disease

  • Deaths in 2017: 50,633
  • Percentage of total deaths: 1.8%

10)     Suicide

So I ask you again, why the hype over coronavirus?   Think about it. Use the brain God gave you. You are being fed BULL SHIT!


First published a year ago- It's a timely reminder of one possible reason why governments are creating population destroying flus and viruses 

At one time, the elite at least attempted to conceal their boundless enthusiasm for population control from the general public, but now they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. 

On Tuesday, an alarming new study that advocates global population control as one of the solutions to the “climate emergency” that we are facing was published in the journal BioScience.  This document has already been signed by 11,258 scientists from 153 different countries, and it openly calls for a reduction in the human population of our planet.  This has always been the endgame for the climate change cult, but now a big push is being made to make the public believe that there is a “scientific consensus” that this is necessary.

You can find a summary of the report here, and I would very much encourage you to read it, because it is essentially a blueprint for where the elite intend to take humanity in the years ahead.



Watch the Movie "Executive Action" from 45 years ago explains just how the Deep State and the liberal left are doing today.  Bill Gates, a large proponent of population control basically has said the same thing!


Bill Gates:

Globalists invested in maintaining a morally bankrupt, defeated people

What was practiced in the shadows is now pushed onto the masses.

YouTube censors video criticizing Fauci and coronavirus response that was on The Plain Truth Yesterday

I found another interview with the doctor and put that up (see story below or HERE) and it's still up at this time. I really hope everyone will watch it! The globalist like YouTube and google censor the truth, and keep up their lies.  Don't be fooled America, you are losing your freedom and every politician, including this president is going along with it!

Coronavirus and American Fears - we are ripe for defeat

Bob Barney

Curses-deut-28For many years I have been writing about the identity of America, and much of the nations of the world, found in the pages of the Bible.   This last Friday the 13th, I reposted the "Friday the 13th" article on just what the #13 symbolizes in the Bible...  

With the advent of the coronavirus, another prophecy of God is coming true.  That is of needless panic and fears, not based in reality but in fear!  God says we will act like a woman in labor pains, "They trembled all over like women giving birth."

What we are witnessing today is the 'woosification' of America. God says men will act like women, in great fear, when in fact there should be no fear! In Leviticus 26, God says this:" I will demoralize you in the land of your enemies. You will live in such fear that the sound of a leaf driven by the wind will send you fleeing. You will run as though fleeing from a sword, and you will fall even when no one pursues you. 37 Though no one is chasing you, you will stumble over each other as though fleeing from a sword. You will have no power to stand up against your enemies. 38 You will die among the foreign nations and be devoured in the land of your enemies. 39 Those of you who survive will waste away in your enemies’ lands because of their sins and the sins of their ancestors."

This is what is happening today with this COLD VIRUS (cause that is what it is) is doing to our nation and the entire Western World.

What this tells our enemies:

Questions we should force our leaders to answer

United States Declaration of IndependenceUnited States Declaration of Independence (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Bob Barney- The Plain

I have a simple question that I hope that one day we would force every single law maker, government executive and judge to answer in writing. I think that it should be required every year in order for these persons to hold public office. I would want them IN THEIR OWN WORDS state why the American Colonists declared war on their own government. I would require these officials to state openly and publicly:

  1. What were the direct causes of the war

  2. Was their action of taking arms against their own government justified, or where they actually criminals that should have been arrested and imprisoned or executed for treason. And if the latter is the opinion of the official's writing the response, should we nullify the Declaration of Independence and declare the United States as a criminal government.

  3. If, as I expect, virtually no one takes this position, that the USA is an illegal criminal government, then they should have to address the items in the Declaration as how they apply today to the laws that they are passing and why Americans would not have the right to take arms against them! After all, those colonialist who signed the Declaration, declared it LAWFUL TO KILL THEIR OWN COUNTRYMEN in what was actually our first Civil War!

  4. What will it take for it to be legal for AMERICANS TO TAKE ARMS against their own Government?

Do you believe in Freedom or Democracy?

A commentary by Bob Barney

TaxesDo you believe in democracy? What form of government is the United States? Is it a democracy, a Republic, or something else that unfortunately has been lost in the past few generations? Constitutionally speaking, America is what is called a "constitutional Republic form of democracy.” We are not as many scholars understand, a purely democratic society. Our forefathers knew that democracies can never last more than a few generations and that the only hope of our government to survive many generations was to form a public form of government. This begs the question, what were they trying to protect? What was the founding principle of our way of life that our forefathers wanted to preserve, protect, and maintain? We see that it was a democratic form of government. So is the Republic of the United States of America the end means of what the founding fathers were attempting to create back in 1789? No, friends, the most important principle to the founding of this nation is a biblical principle which you probably are unaware of. The word “democracy” or "Republic” is not found in the Bible. We all know the Bible is God's word to us and we know what was brought forth in the Gospel of Jesus Christ was concerning a coming Kingdom of God. This Kingdom would occur on earth upon his return at the end of this age. Christ died for our sins--many know this, but in addition, do you know what else Christ bought for us with His death? He brought us freedom. Freedom from sin, freedom from the devil, and freedom from the penalty of death by his resurrection! (see: Freedom and the Bible)

Systems Biologist Speaks Out About COVID-19 Response


  • According to systems biologist Shiva Ayyadurai, Ph.D., the COVID-19 pandemic is being used to shift global wealth
  • Systems biology deciphers the synergies within living systems to understand how to diagnose, assess and identify the underlying problem, and how to administer the most appropriate remedy
  • The economic collapse is a result of precisely engineered governmental policies, even though those policies, superficially, appear to be in the public’s best interest
  • Systems biology informs us one size does not fit all. Yet this knowledge is being ignored in this pandemic. Instead, everyone is told they must take the same precautions as those who are at high risk
  • Fearmongering is being used to suppress antigovernment dissent, to crash the economy and issue medical mandates that could generate trillions of dollars in ongoing revenue in years to come

A Sobering Plain Truth Look at what really Killed in history - It's not Coronavirus!

Bob Barney

The true scale of the coronavirus outbreak currently sweeping the world has been laid bare in a visual timeline comparing it to history's most deadly pandemics. 

It shows the bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death, was the most lethal of all diseases, killing roughly 200million people in the 14th century. (about 1/4 of the entire population of the world at the time!)

Smallpox, the second deadliest pandemic in history, claimed the lives of 56million people over more than 400 years before it was finally eradicated in 1980. 

By comparison, COVID-19 has so far killed MAYBE 20,000 people in America and infected maybe 380,000 since December.   However I don't even believe these stats as many scientists have made the claim that the death toll has been exaggerated by up to 5 times!   In that case we have probably LESS than 4,000 deaths in America. Remember if you die from suicide, and test positive for coronavirus - you are listed as a COVID 19 death, even though there is NO TEST for COVID 19! ( (taken down by Youtube, but you can see the contents here) )

Take a look at this---do you feel a little snookered?


The Plain Truth: CORONAVIRUS Is A COLD! Read the proof for yourself

Bob Barney

I first wrote this in February- I will be proven correct in a short period of time.

image from
Unlike our media, I decided to look into previously published scholarly articles on the coronavirus, as this virus is not new, as we have been led to believe  It is important to realize that The Plain Truth is this  crisis is totally manufactured. The deep state and an effort to destroy Donald Trump's re-election, as well as cause a worldwide panic which these conspirators want to use to create a New World order, by suspending the Constitution as well as national sovereignty across the globe.  No More patriotism, or nationalism is their goal.  IT IS COMMUNISM- Fascism (really the same thing) that the elite want to rule all mankind.  This is predicted in your Bible!  In the End Times, world leaders are going to form a world government, enslaving America and the free world under a dictator name THE BEAST, gaining his power through the antichrist.  Some nations refuse to join this new world order. The United Muslim nations, under a dictator known as "The King of the 
South), China, Japan and possibly Russia.

The US, Western Europe, Australia and most of the rest of the world will be a part of the New World Order Beast government.  That government will defeat the Muslims during what the Bible calls the tribulation, and a forces from China (Japan) and possibly Russia will then ready for a final world war battle in Palestine.  Then at a time, which Jesus says will be like no other time in history, the world will find itself minutes away from total annihilation, with over 90% of the population dead--CHRIST WILL RETURN TO SAVE US-from ourselves.... Read Matthew 24!

Laugh if you will, but this is going to happen.  I am not suggesting that this will happen with this so-called crisis, but the deep state is trying to do it now!  It's time to wake up!  Don't believe the lying media, your lying politicians and a medical community that has been bought and paid for years ago!

This so-called pandemic is a cold virus.  Don't believe me READ the research from STANFORD UNIVERSITY- Not Alex Jones, or Dr Mercola!


Everything you ever wanted to know about the Family Coronaviridae -

and more... 

by Radhika Dasmahapatra

for Human Biology 115A, Humans and Viruses
Robert Siegel, Instructor


Hi everyone and welcome to Radhika's Coronavirus page. What are coronaviruses? What do they do? Why are they important? This page will answer these pressing questions and more. In addition to discussing basic viral features, the focus of the page is on the most common clinical manifestation of Human Coronavirus infection, the Common Cold.

Coronavirus was first isolated from chickens in 1937 by Beaudette and Hudson. After the discovery of Rhinoviruses in the 1950's, more than 50% of colds still could not be ascribed to known agents. In 1965, Tyrrell and Bynoe used cultures of human cilliated embryonal trachea to propagate the first human Coronavirus in vitro. Now, approximately 13 species are known to be in this family, some of which infect humans. Coronaviruses of cattle, pigs, rodents, cats, dogs and birds also exist. When the the family was distinguished on the basis of its distinctive morphology, it received separate classification and the name corona because of the crownlike appearance of the surface projections.

The common cold is a virally related syndrome and has been associated with over 100 different viruses, including Human Coronavirus and Rhinovirus. Common symptoms include throat discomfort , followed by sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, coughing and decreased energy level. Fever is uncommon with colds, except in young children.



Did Chinese Cause the Coronavirus as a weapon of War?

Last month we ran a story that suggested that the virus was actually stolen from Canada and Western allies, which I personally think is very possible - However this viewpoint should also be watched.  My problem with the theory is that tens of thousands died in China (not the "official account" but most realize the fact that probably 50,000 dies in China IF the Coronavirus is actually real!  Another video we had up was that all of the deaths are fake news and that COVID 19 is quite harmless...   More needs to be discovered on who is lying to who

Germany—Modern Counterpart to Ancient Assyria

From the Book:

Book: America & Britain

Israel.1The great Assyrian Empire fell in 612 BC. The generally accepted theory among historians is that what remained of Assyria was subsequently absorbed into the Babylonian and Median Empires. Thus, it is assumed that the Assyrians no longer exist as a people—or do they? As this appendix will show, a remnant of the Assyrian people actually survived the destruction of their empire and reestablished themselves in Europe. We know them today as the modern Germans.

Ancient Assyria was the principal enemy of the northern House of Israel—ultimately destroying Samaria and taking the Israelites captive. As Assyria’s modern-day counterpart, Germany has been a thorn in the sides of both America and Britain—in two world wars. Today, Germany is again on the rise and is rapidly emerging as a dominant player on the world scene. Astonishingly, the Bible predicts that history will repeat itself: Germany, this time leading a powerful European super-state (Dan. 7:7, 23-24; Rev. 13:1-2; 17:12-13, 17), will resume its ancient Assyrian role as adversary of modern Israel. Indeed, the future of the Anglo-American nations—as well as the modern Jewish nation of Israel—is bound to that of Germany.

As brought out in Chapter 16, there is a definite duality to many of the biblical prophecies dealing with the nation of Israel. In Isaiah chapter 10, for example, we see that God chose to use the nation of Assyria as His “rod” of correction on the rebellious House of Israel (verses 5-6)—allowing Israel to be taken into captivity by that warring nation. But the chapter also indicates a second, much later captivity for Israel—also at the hands of the Assyrians. Isaiah speaks of a time when the Messiah will rule in righteousness from Jerusalem—clearly in the age to come (Isa. 11:1-10). Within that context, he writes:

“And it shall come to pass in that day”—the time of Christ’s return to deliver Israel and establish the Kingdom of God— “the LORD shall again set His hand, the second time, to recover the remnant of His people…. And He shall lift up a banner for the nations, and shall gather the outcasts of Israel and gather together the scattered ones of Judah from the four corners of the earth…. And there shall be a highway for the [return of the] remnant of His people, those left from Assyria, as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt” (verses 11-12, 16).

The prophet’s reference to a “second time” contrasts this latter-day deliverance with Israel’s original liberation from Egyptian slavery. But there are significant differences. In this modern-day captivity, Israel and Judah are mentioned independently—the “outcasts of Israel” and the “scattered ones of Judah.” Moreover, they are rescued not from Egypt or the Middle East, but from the “four corners of the earth”—indicating that this future exile is widespread. Finally, note that this latter-day remnant of captives are “left from Assyria.” To be sure, God will once again use the Assyrians—the “rod of His anger”—to bring corrective punishment on modern Israel: the Jewish nation and the Anglo-American peoples.

Back in Isaiah 10, God gives this comforting promise: “O My people who dwell in Zion”—or in America and Britain—“do not fear the Assyrians. They will strike you with the rod of defeat, and will lift up the staff of slavery against you just as Egypt did. But it will only last for a little while—and finally My indignation for your many sins will be satisfied, and My anger will then be turned to Assyria’s destruction. I will stir up a scourge against them like the great slaughter of the Midianites at the rock of Oreb; and as My rod was once lifted up over the Red Sea to deliver you from Egypt, I will likewise deliver you from Assyria. And in that day of My wrath [the Day of the Lord], you will again be released from bondage to slavery” (Isa. 10:24-27; author’s paraphrase).

As emphasized in Chapter 16, the northern ten tribes of Israel were never restored from their Assyrian captivity. Accordingly, this prophecy, and others like it, can only refer to a future captivity of modern Israel—the Anglo-American peoples, along with the Jews. Clearly, God has a future role for “Assyria.”1 Thus, contrary to historians, Assyria was not assimilated by other nations—its descendants must exist as a modern state.

History of Ancient Assyria

The original Assyrian nation developed from the ancient city-state of Ashur, which was named for its founder Asshur, a son of Shem2—one of Noah’s three sons (Gen. 10:1, 22; Asshur was a brother of Arphaxad, the progenitor of Abraham, Gen. 11:10–26). There is a connection between Nimrod, who was of Ham, and Assyria (Ashur and Assyria are essentially the same word; in fact, Asshur can refer to the man, the city, Assyria, or the Assyrians’ chief deity, which they worshipped as the god of war). In the KJV, Genesis 10:11 seems to say that Asshur built Nineveh, which became the foremost city of Assyria. But a widely-accepted alternate translation indicates that Nimrod was the founder: “Out of that land [Babylon] he [Nimrod] went forth to Assyria, and [he] built Nineveh.” Moreover, Micah 5:6 apparently refers to Assyria as the “land of Nimrod.” In his Old Testament History, Charles Pfeiffer writes that Nimrod “moved northward [from Babel] to [help] colonize Assyria, building Nineveh and other cities there.”3

Nevertheless, Asshur is credited with developing the region into a powerful empire—Assyria. Josephus writes: “Ashur lived at the city [of] Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others.”4 Assyria literally means “land of Asshur” and denotes strength or power. As Josephus indicates, Assyria became a “most fortunate nation”—wealthy, militarily powerful, and dominant in the ancient Middle East.

Assyria eventually went into significant decline. Consequently, for about the next 1200 years, Egypt dominated the Middle East. But Assyria did not disappear. Around 1000 BC, the “neo-Assyrian” Empire began to emerge. This is the empire that would eventually conquer northern Israel, taking her tribes into captivity. By 800 BC, a resurgent Assyria was ready to dominate most of the then-known world. A new dynasty, commencing with Tiglath-pileser III in about 745 BC, brought Nineveh to the world stage. The Encyclopedia Britannica notes: “Under Tiglath-pileser III arose the second Assyrian empire, which differed from the first in its greater consolidation. For the first time in history, the idea of centralization was introduced into [state] politics…. The Assyrian forces became a standing army, which, by successive improvements and careful discipline, was molded into an irresistible fighting machine.”5

Almost every historian has noted the warmongering nature of the ancient Assyrians. In his History of the World, James McCabe writes that the Assyrians were a “fierce, treacherous race, delighting in the dangers of the chase and in war. The Assyrian troops were notably among the most formidable of ancient warriors.”6 The Cambridge Ancient History adds: “The might of Assyria is the characteristic feature of the new period which opens after the Iron Age has fully set in. She is a military state with a strong will and a deliberate [annexationist] policy, expanding in all directions, and forming one of the most remarkable empires of antiquity.”7

Ultimately, God used the Assyrians as the “rod of His anger”—to take the rebellious House of Israel into captivity. Shalmaneser V initiated a three-year siege (completed under Sargon II) in which Samaria fell in 722 BC. As a nation, Israel ceased to exist; its entire population was deported and relocated in distant lands—in Halah, Habor, Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes (II Kings 17:5-6).

But the mighty Assyrian Empire was soon to go into decline, having stretched itself militarily too thin. A growing Babylon and Media—aided by Israelite Scythians warriors—were bent on her destruction, which finally came in 612 BC with the fall of Nineveh. From this point historians believe the Assyrians disappeared from history, being mostly assimilated into the newly-dominant Babylonian Empire. There is evidence, however, that many Assyrians—including some of her nobles and military leaders—survived and migrated to the north.

Assyrian Migration Into Europe

Following the fall of Nineveh, a sizeable remnant of Assyrians fled to the west, taking refuge at an old fortress at Harran. Directly northwest of Nineveh, Harran was located near the Euphrates in what is today northern Syria.8 Pfeiffer writes: “The Assyrians retreated westward to the ancient city of Harran, but it too fell to the Babylonians and their allies [in] 610 BC.” The Assyrian king, Ashur-uballit II, tried to retake Harran but failed. Thus, “the fall of Harran was the final death blow to the Assyrian Empire.”9

Describing the end of the empire in stark detail, the prophet Nahum says her survivors were “scattered upon the mountains” (Nahum 3:18). This indicates that the Assyrians ultimately fled almost directly north to the only safe haven left—the mountains that spread across what is today Armenia and Georgia. Indeed, the Caucasus had served as a sanctuary for migrating Israelites just a few decades earlier. Concerning an earlier time, we read in II Kings 19 that Sennacherib, king of Assyria, was killed by his sons—who then fled “into the land of Armenia” (verses 36-37). Again, this shows that the rugged land between the Black and Caspian Seas was favored as a place of refuge.

The historian Sylax, from around 530 BC, wrote that “the [southern] coast of the Black Sea … is called Assyria.”10 But the Assyrian Empire never reached as far north as the Black Sea; Sylax could only be referring to “transitional” settlements along the coasts of the Black Sea that suggest an Assyrian migration out of the Middle East. From the Caucasus region, the Assyrians apparently migrated further north, to the upper shores of the Black Sea. Pliny the Elder (23–79 AD) wrote in his Natural History that, in his time, the “Assyriani” lived north of the Black Sea.11 This indicates an Assyrian migration into Europe. (Few tribes migrating out of the Middle East attempted to relocate to the east—for that overcrowded region was dominated by barbaric clans that were already beginning to invade Europe.) Aware of the various Celtic, Scythian, and Hunnish tribes that were steadily moving from the east into Europe, the Latin scholar Jerome (340-420 AD) wrote that “Assur also is joined with them.” Remember, Assur is another name for Assyria. Apparently, Jerome was an eyewitness to the Assyrian migration into Europe from areas around the Black Sea.12

It is evident that an Assyrian remnant survived the destruction of Nineveh and eventually made its way to the Caucasus-Black Sea region. Centuries later, these Assyrian clans—along with other so-called “Germanic” tribes, including Israelites—migrated into central and western Europe. Historians typically fail to connect displaced Assyrian survivors with the ancient tribes migrating into Europe from the east. But a number of researchers are now willing to consider the possibility that Assyrians did migrate into western Europe—and that they may well be predecessors of the modern Germans. For example, Steven Collins, whose work has been cited numerous times in this book, has come to the conclusion that “the Germanii… were originally Assyrians.”13 Moreover, in his 300-page book The Great German Nation, Craig White goes to great lengths to prove the Assyrian origin of the German peoples.

The History of Germany

Like the modern Israelites, the German people—who number over 100 million worldwide—are made up of numerous tribes. Today, most of them reside in Germany and Austria.

As part of the extensive Indo-European race, German tribes migrated into Europe from the Caucasus and Black Sea regions. Smith’s Classical Dictionary notes: “There can be no doubt that [the Germans] … migrated into Europe from the Caucasus and the countries around the Black and Caspian Seas.”14 Smith says they were described as being of tall stature with fair complexions, blue eyes, and blonde or red hair—much like those who settled the northern and eastern regions of Germany.

Much was written about the early German tribes that migrated into Europe throughout the first and second centuries AD, thanks primarily to the Roman historian Tacitus. Prior to his time, historical writings concerning the Germans are rather sketchy and often contradictory. One of the problems in researching the Germans is the term Germani (or Germanii). As Collins notes, “the term ‘German’ [or Germani] eventually came to be applied to many tribes of people migrating into Europe.”15 This is similar to how the term Scythian was used to describe a number of different nomadic clans. As numerous sources show, the Romans originally coined the term Germani in order to distinguish between invading Sarmatians and Israelite Scythians. With the appearance of non-Israelite Sarmatians in the region once occupied almost exclusively by Scythians, the Romans found it necessary to introduce a new name for those tribes they considered to be genuine Scythians. Strabo documents the change, explaining that germani was a Latin word meaning genuine or authentic in terms of race (from germanus, meaning “genuine” or “of the same parents”).16 The Romans were simply attempting to indicate that the Israelite-Scythians were the genuine Scythians, not the Sarmatians. But as Collins notes, the term came to be used almost indiscriminately of Indo-European clans in general, essentially only distinguishing them from the Asia hordes of the East. (Today, the word Germanic refers to any group that is part of the Indo-European language family.)

Consequently, while many historical references to Celtic or Scythian Israelites employ the term Germani (as found in the writings of Strabo, for example), it is also used by other writers to refer to non-Israelite clans— including Assyrians. Thus, when the reader sees Germani, it is often unclear as to the exact identity of the tribe being discussed.

However, as the bulk of the Scythian Germani began migrating into Scandinavia and the British Isles, they came to be primarily identified by clannish names: Angles, Saxons, Danes, etc. It appears that over time “Germani” came to refer more and more to the Caucasus-based tribes that remained behind to dominate western Europe—primarily the Assyrian- Germans. By the end of the last century BC, a sharp distinction was beginning to be drawn between what we now know as German clans and Israelite clans, especially those Celtic groups associated with Gaul. Thus, many later historians use the term Germani (as well as Germania) to refer not to Israelite (or other) clans, but to Assyrian Germani.

For example, the Encyclopedia Britannica Online notes that “it was not until the first century BC was well advanced that the Romans learned to distinguish precisely between the Germans and the Celts, a distinction that [was] made with great clarity by Julius Caesar.”17 Thus, “the concept of Germany as a distinct region in central Europe can be traced to the Roman commander Julius Caesar, who referred to the unconquered area east of the Rhine as Germania, thus distinguishing it from Gaul (France), which he had conquered.”18 Owing to the fierceness of the German tribes in this area, the Romans were unable to incorporate Germania into their empire. Caesar’s “Germania” included the area north of the upper Danube and east of the Rhine—not unlike the boundaries of today’s German state. The areas west of the Rhine were mainly Celtic.19 “Germania was inhabited by different tribes, most of them Germanic [here, the writer actually means German], but also some Celtic, proto-Slavic, Baltic, and Scythian peoples. The tribal and ethnic makeup changed over the centuries as a result of assimilation and, most importantly, migrations.”20 Indeed, as Israelite clans migrated further north into Scandinavia and west into the British Isles—or were pushed to the south into Gaul, etc.—the “tribal and ethnic makeup” of Germania became less diverse. In fact, once the German tribes arrested the westward drive of the Huns, their clans became dominant in the region—making Germania truly German.21

In describing some of the differences between the German tribes and the Celtic Gauls to their south, Caesar wrote: “The Gauls, although warlike, could be civilized, but the Germanic tribesmen were far more savage and were a [continual] threat to Rome.”22 After the fall of Rome in 476 AD, German clans began to expand to the south. As a consequence, subsequent “revivals” of the Roman Empire were heavily German.

Tacitus’ Germania, published in 98 AD, is in many ways a more complete account than the one provided by Caesar. Tacitus studied the clans that had settled along the empire’s northern frontier, carefully documenting their tribal distinctions. Key tribes noted by Tacitus include the Chatti, Chauci, Cherusci, Suebi, Semnones, Langobardi, Marcomanni, Treveri, Tungri, etc. The third century saw the emergence of a number of larger German tribes: the Alamanni, Bavarii, Frisii, Sicambri, and Thuringii.

Links Between Assyria and Germany

A number of connections exist between the ancient nation of Assyria and modern-day Germany—cultural, geographical, appearance-related, etc. Some demonstrate how Germany’s cultural history and national character— more than any other modern nation—resemble that of ancient Assyria.

Looking at Germany’s origins, for example, there is an interesting legend concerning the nation’s oldest city, Trier (located on the Mosel River in Rhineland-Palatinate, in western Germany). While “official” records claim Trier was built by the Romans, the legend has it that Trier was built some 4000 years ago by the Assyrian prince Trebeta, a son of the Assyrian king Ninus (the name Trier is said to be derived from Trebeta). Translated, a medieval inscription on the façade of the “Red House” at Trier Market reads: “Thirteen hundred years before Rome, Trier stood; may it stand on and enjoy eternal peace; amen.” Archives state that Trebeta was the son of Ninus, a “king of Assyria.”23 Apparently, Trebeta left Assyria and led a group of colonizers to Europe, thus founding the Assyrian colony of Trier.

Rome was founded in 753 BC. This places the founding of Trier at around 2000 BC. In his History, Diodorus of Sicily confirms that Ninus was an Assyrian king.24 The Assyrian Nineveh means “abode of Ninus.” Since Nimrod apparently built Nineveh (Gen. 10:11), this suggests he was also known as Ninus—and Nimrod would have lived around 2000 BC. Is it possible that a son of Nimrod—the mighty hunter who founded Nineveh, the great city of ancient Assyria—actually founded Trier, thus establishing the location to which exiled Assyrians would later migrate?

Concerning physical appearance, when the ancient Greeks wanted to differentiate between Assyrians and other peoples living in Mesopotamia, they called the Assyrians Leucosyri—i.e., white or blonde. Strabo notes that the Germani inhabiting Europe were not only taller than the Celts, they also tended to have lighter, yellowish hair. These physical characteristics are still prevalent in the modern German race. 25

An important German tribe is the Chatti (or Hatti), which in the first century AD settled in the German area known today as Hesse. The Hatti are the ancestors of the modern Hessians—known for their warlike nature. (The British hired Hessian mercenaries to fight against the colonial army during the American Revolution.) The Cambridge (etc.) notes that the Hatti were anciently settled in “eastern Asia Minor” along the western edge of the Assyrian Empire and distinguishes them from the biblical Hittites, who were of Ham (the Hattic culture, like Assyria, was Semitic). Described as a “stolid, warlike folk,” the Hatti “could work several metals, notably silver, bronze, and iron.” Scholars believe that the Hatti were closely allied with the western part of the Assyrian Empire—so close, in fact, that the two are often viewed as synonymous.26

In the northwest region of the empire lay Cilicia, “the province on which Assyria principally depended for the all-important metal trade.”27 The province was part of the Hattic region of southeastern Asia Minor—and the Hatti were, as noted, skilled in metal work. The apostle Paul was born in Tarsus of Cilicia (Acts 21:39). Interestingly, a map of pre-World War II Germany will show an eastern province named Silesia.28 The spelling is slightly different, but Silesia is pronounced exactly as Cilicia. Was the Hattic “Cilicia” transplanted to Germany by Hattic-Assyrians migrating to Europe, becoming the modern area of “Silesia”?

Strabo records that an area of Asia Minor was called Prusa. Collins writes, “If we see in their name the ancestors of the warlike Prussians who later settled in eastern Germany, it is possible that [the people of Prusa] were descendants of Assyrians … during Assyria’s period of dominance in the region [of Asia Minor].”29 Did survivors of Assyrian Prusa migrate to Europe to become the modern Prussians?

And what of the warlike natures of both the ancient Assyrians and the modern Germans? The Britannica states that “Assyrian policy was directed towards the definite objective of reducing the whole civilized world into a single empire and thereby throwing its trade and wealth into Assyrian hands.”30 This is uncannily similar to the “Reich” mentality championed by past German regimes. Indeed, it is apparent that the Assyrians had a “master race” mentality, as is suggested in Isaiah 10: “Are not all of my princes kings?” (verse 8). The Assyrians ruled harshly over those they conquered, and subjected leaders were forced to bow to the Assyrian kings.31 Moreover, the Assyrians were highly nationalistic and functioned quite well under a centralized autocratic authority. Similarly, as a confederation of states or provinces, the Germans have always demonstrated a desire to dominate other nations. In fact, the German people have, more than once, believed themselves to be the “Herrenvolk”—the master race.

After the fall of Rome, German clans began to expand their sphere of influence—while growing increasingly imperialistic and utilizing a fully totalitarian style of governing; moreover, the Germans assimilated the newly formed “Christian” religion of the Romans. As the new “heirs of Rome,” the Germans under Charlemagne gave birth to the Holy Roman Empire of 800 AD. This eventually led to the centuries-long German First Reich (962-1806 AD, also called the Holy Roman Empire). The Second Reich was the Imperial German Empire of 1871 to 1918, a union of 25 German states organized under a Prussian king; the third was Hitler’s Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945.

To find Germany spearheading the effort to unite Europe today is not surprising—as this idea has been part of the German cultural heritage for more than a thousand years!

Resurgent Germany: A Future Fourth Reich?

The evidence is undeniable: The origins of modern-day Germany can be traced to the ancient nation of Assyria. Not only does history itself support this conclusion, but the culture and national character of Germany argue in favor of it as well. Not content to simply blend into the fabric of a united Europe, Germany is the undisputed leader of the continent. Given its past history, will we see Germany again try to dominate Europe and exert its influence on the world? The Bible says that is exactly what will happen.

When viewed over a period of several centuries, history reveals a marked tendency of the German people to undergo periodic and dramatic transformations in national character—with corresponding shifts in national direction. Such transformations have been nationalistic in nature, and often militaristic. Peter Zeihan notes this tendency for German history to run in cycles. He writes that “as Germany rises, the powers on its periphery buckle under its strength and are forced to pool resources in order to beat back Berlin. As Germany falters, the [resultant] power vacuum at the middle of the Continent allows the countries on Germany’s borders to rise in strength and become major powers themselves. Since the formation of the first ‘Germany’ in 800 [AD], this cycle has set the tempo and tenor of European affairs. A strong Germany means consolidation followed by a catastrophic war; a weak Germany creates a multilateral concert of powers and multi-state competition…. For Europe, this cycle of German rise and fall has run its course three times—the Holy Roman Empire, Imperial Germany, and Nazi Germany—and is only now entering its fourth iteration with the reunified Germany.”32

Why this German tendency? Shaped largely by a mythology offering no authentic national purpose, Germany is a nation “searching for a cause.” An inherent void seems to exist that has historically only been filled by dominating other peoples. That void was once filled by the Holy Roman Empire, and in the last century by Hitler’s National Socialist movement. Today, European unification appears to be Germany’s new cause. And, as the German nation increasingly takes center stage in European politics, many are wondering what kind of crisis it might take to push the country into an aggressive-dominant role.

Hitler rose to power during the turmoil of a worldwide depression, but his ideas were drawn from long-standing German values and traditions. For Germans, nationalistic pride and the “master race” mentality go hand-in -hand. These traditions tend to surface when the collective German mind is rallied by a real or perceived national crisis. The result can be a resurgent aggressiveness and a reawakening of past warlike behavior.

European statesmen—including German leaders—are not ignorant of these German tendencies. Concerned about what European unity might ultimately look like, Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister from 1979 to 1990, famously warned Europe: “You have not anchored Germany to Europe; you have anchored Europe to a newly dominant, unified Germany. In the end, my friends, you’ll find it will not work.” Helmut Kohl— chancellor of West Germany from 1982 to 1990, and of Germany from 1990 to 1998—was a champion of European unity. In 1994, he warned: “Never again must there be a destabilizing vacuum of power in central Europe. If European integration were not to progress, Germany might be called upon, or tempted by its own security constraints, to try to effect the [necessary] stabilization on its own and in the traditional [i.e., militaristic] way.”

What a profound warning from one of Germany’s greatest modern-day leaders! Indeed, the endless edicts and treaties issued by a faceless EU bureaucracy in Brussels have not fostered real European unity. The success of the euro is currently in peril and momentum towards a unified Europe is in danger of stalling. But be certain of this: Germany will not give up on its ambitions for a pan-European federation. Should a real European crisis present itself, Germany will no doubt be quick to stand in the gap!33

Following the principle of prophetic duality (see Chapter 16), the Bible speaks of Assyria in the end times. These passages refer to Germany. As other passages indicate, Germany in the latter days will head up a “super union” of European nations. To be sure, Germany’s return to power in the years since World War II is no accident. “Assyria” is being prepared to once again serve as God’s “rod of correction” against the modern nations of Israel—the United States, Great Britain, and the Jewish nation.

People today scoff at the suggestion that Germany could ever again threaten the West. After all, Germany is now one of America’s top allies. But they are wrong for two reasons. First, the “blessings and curses” chapters of the Bible (Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26) show that God will not bring this Assyrian “nation of fierce countenance” against the Anglo-American nations until He has first reduced us to less than third-world status through unimaginable financial collapse and violent social unrest—not to mention pandemic disease and widespread famine. As inconceivable as it may seem, there will come a time very soon when even America will be no match for this developing European superpower.

Secondly, Germany—while rapidly growing as an economic and military power in its own right—will not act alone, but will head up what is tantamount to a revived Holy Roman Empire. The prophet Daniel describes this world-dominating coalition as a powerful economic and war-making machine—one that will ultimately be destroyed by Christ at His coming and replaced by the Kingdom of God (Dan. 2:40-44; 7:7, 19-27; Rev. 17:12-14). This European “beast power” will rise out of the ashes of the old Holy Roman Empire—and, true to form, will feature a powerful religious element (Rev. 13).34

Led by modern Assyria, this “beast” system will dominate the entire world for a brief period of time, ultimately subjugating the American and British peoples. It will also occupy the modern Jewish state of Israel—just as foreshadowed by the Roman occupation of Jerusalem in 69-70 AD. As Revelation 11:2 says, Jerusalem will be “trodden under foot” for 42 months by this Gentile power.

But God will not allow the destruction of the very city where He has forever placed His name—nor will He allow His chosen nation to be utterly destroyed. God’s promises to Abraham are immutable: Through Christ, He will powerfully act to save Israel during this end-time crisis so that she may yet become the premier model nation of God in the age to come.

God will use modern Assyria to execute His judgment on the nations of latter-day Israel—America, Britain, and the Jewish state. Yet this German-led war-making coalition will not realize that they are being used by God. Isaiah 10:7 brings this out—“this [corrective punishment] is not what he intends, nor does he have this [divine purpose] in mind” (NRSV). In other words, Germany will not see itself as an instrument of God’s righteous judgment. The same verse continues, “but it is in his very nature to destroy many nations” (author’s paraphrase). Failing to perceive its God-ordained role, Germany will fully give in to its war-like nature; in prideful arrogance, Germany will imagine that it has acted by its own strength and shrewdness as it sets about to fully destroy modern Israel.

But God will deliver Israel and quickly turn to punish Germany, destroying its armies in a single day (verses 12-19). God says through Isaiah, “I will break Assyria in My land, and upon My mountains, and trample him under foot. Then his yoke shall be removed from [Israel], and his burden shall be taken off their shoulders” (Isa. 14:25).35

Of this time, the prophet writes: “And it shall come to pass, in that day [of your deliverance] … you shall be gathered one by one, O children of Israel…. In that day a great ram’s horn shall be blown, and those perishing in the land of Assyria shall come, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt shall come, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mountain at Jerusalem” (Isa. 27:12-13).

Remember, these prophecies could never apply to Israel of old—as the ten tribes were never brought back from their Assyrian captivity. These passages can only refer to a future time of crisis on modern-day Israel at the hands of modern-day Assyria.

The prophet Zechariah tells of these future developments:

“I will strengthen the house of Judah [the modern State of Israel] and I will save the house of Joseph [Britain and America]—I will restore them because of the mercy I have for them. It shall be as though I had never cast them off; for I am the LORD their God, and I will answer them [in their time of trouble]. Ephraim shall once again be a mighty one, and their hearts shall rejoice as through wine. Their children shall see this and be glad, and their heart shall rejoice in the LORD. I will call for them and gather them—for I have redeemed them. They shall increase and become numerous once again. Though I have scattered them among the nations [in corrective punishment], they will remember Me—even in distant lands. They and their children will survive, and they will return to Me. I will deliver them out of the land of Egypt, and I will gather them out of Assyria. I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon, until there is no room left…. And I will humble the proud Assyrians, and the scepter of Egypt shall be no more. I will strengthen My people in the LORD, and they shall live in My name” (Zech. 10:6–12; author’s paraphrase).

Amazingly, the Bible also shows that God will yet use Germany as a leading nation for peace in the age to come. “In that day, Israel shall be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the LORD of hosts has blessed, saying, ‘Blessed be My people Egypt, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance’ ” (Isa. 19:24–25).

21. Essentially, the term German was a name thrust upon the Assyrian-
Germani. It was not at all a name of their choosing. By the end of the tenth
century AD, the term diutisc came to be used of Germans—from which is
derived the modern deutsch, meaning “of the people.” Today, Germans call
themselves Deutsch and their country Deutschland. Dr. Hoeh links the name
deutsch to an individual named “Tuisco” or “Tuitsch,” noting that early
annals identify him as “the progenitor of all Germans” (Compendium, p. 5).
Though the evidence is sketchy, other researchers link Tuitsch with Asshur.

resurrect its old Soviet Empire, Europe will increasingly find itself
threatened. Eventually, some kind of crisis—political, economic, military,
or a combination thereof—will cause Germany to assume an aggressive
leadership position, ultimately leading to a European super-state.

34. Daniel also refers to this end-time “beast” as the “king of the
north” (Dan. 11:40). Prophetic perspectives are always given from the
vantage point of Jerusalem. Ancient Assyria was north of Jerusalem; the
Seleucid empire of Antiochus Epiphanes (the “king of the north” in type)
was to the north; and, of course, Rome and Germany are northwest of
Palestine. Bible prophecy also refers to a “king of the south” (Dan. 11:40),
which in the latter days will likely be an Arab union led by Egypt. The
biblical “kings of the east” (Rev. 16:12) represent an Asian conglomeration
led by Russia and China (compare Dan. 11:44).

35. Similarly, when the Assyrians came against Jerusalem during the reign
of Hezekiah, God delivered the city by destroying virtually the entire
Assyrian army in a single night (II Kings 19; note verses 34-35).

Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

The following is from a medical forum. The writer, who is a widely respected professional scientist in the US, prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days. – Julian Rose


I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.

It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.

Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.

And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.

If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.

And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.

They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive

PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.

Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.

You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.

Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.

Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.

1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.

2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.

3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.

4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.

Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.

They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.

Rare 'Pink Moon' linked to 'end of the world
Bob Barney: Christ therefore warns us to keep up to date with world events and count off the signs of His return (Matthew 24). That is what we are doing with The Plain Truth. Jesus tells us, Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8 But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come."
No we are not in the tribulation, we are still in the the birth pains!

TPT1960.3   For those who know what the Bible has predicted for our day today, by understanding just where biblical nations can be found today, this article has been probably been already read. It was written by commentator Garner Ted Armstrong in the original magazine publication called The Plain Truth (which the plain has NO affiliation).  I hope our readers will find time to read about the coming trade war, Ted predicted was coming to us.... The article was written ........... in 1960!   Think Donald Trump was a prophet about trade war?  What he predicted in 1984, was already predicted 50 years earlier by Ted's dad. Herbert Armstrong in 1934- BEFORE WWII!

Please read the article.  Most of it could have been written TODAY. Follow the link to a pdf of that article (which starts on page 3)

Trade War- Gullible Americans and Britons asleep to a grave danger

Passover, America, Coronavirus and GOD. America Rejects God Powers Completely

For the First Time in the Nations History- Americans are barred from going to Church

Bill of Rights are completely abolished and trashed. No right to assembly, or religion

By Bob Barney

ConsitutionA patient is in critical condition, near death. A family waits in fear. Will their loved one live or die?  The doctor comes out to speak to them. "I'm afraid," the doctor tells them solemnly, "we've done all we can do... It's up to God now."  

The family shrieks in fear, "Oh NO! Doctor," the cry in unison, "isn't there something else you can do."

Let's face it, in this modern world of ours most of us simply don't believe in a God of healing, but we do put our faith and trust in modern medicene. Doctors have replaced our priests and medicine has replaced God's power. Americans only believe in a God of convenience.  A Linus' blanket type of God, that is somewhat like a fairytale, but when push comes to God, we take men's expertise over God's power.

I trust nobody in either medicine or government over God.  What we are told by these High Priest of the false God of medicine changes from year to year. Doctors in the 1950's told people to smoke menthol cigarettes if they had a sore throat or a chest cold.  Today we know better.  The fact is what these "experts" really are in many instances, bought and paid advertisers for big Pharma. Also,I trust nobody in government - including President Trump. Trust no man completely.  The apostle Paul said "Follow me, as I follow Christ."  Paul didn't want any of us to follow men over God.

Today we are seeing what OUR GENERATION used to warn people about. A deep state government takeover- you know the same deep state that took us to Viet Nam, Impeached Trump, tested Syphilis on black Americans, released germs in San Francisco to see what would happen, and introduced a virus in The New York City subway system to track movements of people and the disease. YES this all happened, but some of us now want BIG GOVT to save us. I trust God- and not man and especially NO MAN that wants to take away my god given rights.

Today's so-called plague is a great example.  For years we have heard the rant and ravings of conservative speakers and cohorts yell at us "it's time we put God back in our schools and government."  Yet when a crisis comes, these same so-called God loving Christians tell us to stay away from Church. Irony maybe?  We as a people have never allowed our faith and right to worship God to be abolished at anytime.  We were a people at one time that trusted God could save us from anything.  Not anymore. The religious leaders and the so-called conservatives have aligned themselves with the fake media and the deep state to push for the trashing of American democracy.

The same people who worried about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama taking away our freedoms, our right to bare arms, freedom of assembly and pushing us into a global world order, are now proposing the very same thing!  All of a sudden, these people are willing to give up the right to assemble, the right to practice our faith in the church of our choice, and the right of free movement.  They have run out of toilet paper I guess, and decided to use the Bill of Rights as their temporary stash!  The United Kingdom President Boris Johnson is now claiming that the only hope for the world is a world government! I thought he won because he was against the EU and world governments.   In an article, the Washington Post headline:The coronavirus will end conservative dogma about big government forever.  There are no libertarians in foxholes, it turns out. And Republicans won’t be able to unwind their endorsements of deficit spending.

The headline says it all. In a matter of a few days, Americans have adopted every principle of the globalist agenda, and we are not going back.  Individualism is gone forever, and the elite now know that they can take control anytime they wish, in the blinking of an eye. GOD IS DEAD, or so they think.

I have been warning for years that America is destined to be enslaved at the hands of a dictator from Europe who will control a large new world order. That's the Beast of Revelation, the last book of the Bible.  Although I understood this prophecy, I frankly could not comprehend how it would happen.  I admit, to my human mind, it seemed impossible that Americans would change their belief-structure overnight.  But they have.  Fear, panic and the loss of faith has made this transformation happen very quickly.

We are acting as our ancestors did in the time of Moses, when after being freed from slavery, the people wanted safety over hardship. Enslavement over freedom.  Man's rule over God's rule. Egypt over Moses.  It's a time found in the books of Exodus, and Deuteronomy.  The time of the first Passover for the nation of Israel.

What is the Passover?

Burning_bushIt's a shame that modern Christians follow pagan holidays instead of the Holy Days God commands us to follow.  It is this reason alone, that we simply do not understand the power of God, and have the lack of faith that we obviously have today!  When the nation of Israel (the identity of Israel will surprise most) were slaves in Egypt, God told an unbelieving Moses that He would use Moses to free the people, from the most powerful nation in the world at the time.  It's a great story.  Moses tried everything he could to 'get out' of doing his job. Moses simply, like most of us today, had no faith in God's power.

"Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?"

And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.

 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”

God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

Most today do not know that the God speaking here is Jesus. "I am" is Jesus' personal name.  To prove that by the way, go to John 8; when the Jews were demanding just who he claimed to be, He answered: "Very truly I tell you, before Abraham was born, I AM!”  The Jews knew exactly who Jesus was claiming to be, so "At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds."   They wanted him dead for His claiming to be the God of Moses, Abraham and Jacob.

The Passover was a time not unlike today.  Great plagues caused by God were destroying the Egyptians.  They were on a crisis lockdown, not unlike what we are facing today.  Moses reluctantly went back to Egypt to face who he thought was the most powerful ruler on earth (Moses didn't yet trust God at all).  The pharaoh told Moses, "I know not your God."  The Israelites suffered even more and started to doubt Moses. Moses doubted God.. “Why, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Is this why you sent me?  Ever since I went to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has brought trouble on this people, and you have not rescued your people at all.”

Yes Moses didn't believe, as many do not today.  This very fact seems to dismay God, who says over and over in the Bible, "Is there anything too hard for the LORD to do?" God just can't understand our disbelief. After all God knows His own power!  We don't.  

The important lesson to learn here is that in the midst of all these plagues, only the the Egyptians suffered, not the Israelites. God's awesome power protected the Israelites from every sickness, plague and disease! They were to come together and congregate as a CHURCH trusting in God!  I guess Moses was lucky that the Pharaoh didn't order the people not to mass together in churches as governors and our president are doing today.

God ordered His people to trust Him and to come together in prayer, as a church, a congregation under HIS power.  God is the God who heals us.  God says "It is better to take refuge in the LORD (Jesus) than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in you leaders."

If you listen carefully to Me, the LORD your God and do what is right in My eyes, if you pay attention to My commands and keep all My decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.

What we are seeing today is a nation spiting in the face of God and choosing the power of modern medicine and doctors over the power of God, just like we do when the doctors says "it's in God's hands now" and we become despondent over the news being given to us by the doctor.

I'm not saying that it's not prudent to protect oneself from disease by practicing God's plan to stay healthy. Chapter on chapter in the Bible is solely concerning how we should practice sound health policies. What foods we should and should not eat. Washing and taking baths, washing hands, and yes separating the sick from the masses!  God tells us to isolate sick people, not healthy ones -- but in everything trust in Him to heal us.

Yes if you choose to believe that your church is not able to protect you, then you also have concluded that your church is not under God's power. My advice is either you or your church needs to find the real God.  If your pastor refuses to close his church, then you probably found a true representative of God, whether he follows Sundays to worship, or God's day, the Sabbath.  

It's time to learn the Plain Truth about God, Passover, and Healing.

God's Passover starts on this Thursday, at the end of the day when night falls, and continues on the next day (Friday this year) where God's people are to assemble together, thank God for our blessings, and yes our health.


Here are some quotes from GOD  I hope they can bring you strength and hope and conquer your fears:

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

James 1:6-8 . But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

James 5:14. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.

2 Kings 20:5 Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the Lord.’

2 Corinthians 7:14. Then if my people who are called by my name (Israel- or America and the British commonwealth) will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.

Finally Remember:  I am the Lord, who heals you.

Friends, believe in the power of God, and stand firmly with God and do not allow fear to control you, or your leaders to use fear to enslave you!  Remember, a better life is coming, where there is no sickness, no disease and no death. Strive for that eternal life, and not this temporal one.


God Bless
