Huge Multi-Billion Japanese F-35 Buy Changes Power Scale in Pacific

We at The Plain Truth have been predicting a rearmed Germany and Japan. the Bible hints at both to happen, and the moronic leadership of America and the world is helping this happen. There is no doubt that Japan will rearm and look to China as the land they will want to conquer. China is playing into the hands of the Japanese militarists and the Devil.  Putin is doing the same thing with what he is doing in Ukraine. Germany will also rearm.  To their credit, the Armstrongs (Garner Ted and his father Herbert) have been predicting this for 75 years!

Now today's Update:

By Kris Osborn, President, Center for Military Modernization

(Washington D.C.) Japan’s massive, multi-billion F-35 acquisition seems to be a development of enormous consequence when it comes to the question of deterring China or destroying any kind of fast-evolving People’s Liberation Army Navy attack on Taiwan.

The large Japanese buy, put in place earlier this year, will place large numbers of F-35Bs and F-35As within striking range of waters near Taiwan. These aircraft, particularly when combined with or networked to forward positioned US F-35s launching from amphibs or carriers, could “mass” a 5th-generation force of great consequence in the event of an attempted Chinese takeover.

“While here, the 354th AEW will integrate with U.S. Marine Corps F-35B Lightning IIs assigned to III Marine Expeditionary Force to strengthen partnerships and enhance joint capabilities,” the Indo Pacific-Command paper said.

This kind of air-surface synergy would be of extreme value in any kind of military engagement in the Pacific, because while an America-class amphibious assault ship can operate as many as 13 F-35Bs, an ability to reinforce a maritime presence of 5th-generation platforms with land-launched F-35s would offer a combat multiplying for both US and Japanese forces. Using the well-known F-35 Multifunction Advanced Data Link, Japanese and US air and surface F-35s could coordinate missions, share data in real time and enable unprecedented attack interoperability.  MORE>>>>>>


Wars and Rumors of War: What happens if the nukes fall?

What would happen if Russia turned to nuclear war?

Vladimir Putin has repeatedly threatened to nuke anyone interfering in the Ukraine war and while experts agree the chances of a strike on the West are low, the possibility cannot be discounted. Joe Biden has personally warned that the chances of 'Armageddon' are now greater than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis. So, what would actually happen if a nuclear bomb were to strike London (top left), Washington DC (top right), New York (bottom left), or Paris (bottom right)? Dr Jeffrey Lewis, of the Middlebury Institute, walks MailOnline through the horrifying consequences - including the landmarks that would be utterly destroyed and the places where people would be most-likely to survive.   

 

Putin moves supersonic nuclear bombers to airbase near Finland and Norway borders as tensions rise over threat of 'Armageddon'

Putin moves nuclear bombers to airbase near Finland and Norway borders

Vladimir Putin has again increased his strategic nuclear bombers at an airbase near the Finnish and Norwegian borders. The move comes amid high tension over whether he plans an atomic attack in Europe and his on-going invasion of Ukraine. He has gradually increased the number of strategic bombers at Olenya air base from none on August 12, to four Tu-160s on August 21, to 11 now. There are seven Tu-160 strategic bombers (marked in red) and four Tu-95 aircraft (marked in yellow) at the facility on the Kola Peninsula. The build-up above at the air base follows international concern over another report two weeks ago, when The Jerusalem Post revealed there was an 'unusual deployment' of seven nuclear bombers at the airbase. The Armageddon planes are usually stationed at Engels Air Base, 450 miles south-east of Moscow.   


U.S. Blew Up Russian Gas Pipelines Nord Stream 1 & 2, Says Former Polish Defense Minister

Biden is just itching to start WWIII, and Americans are asleep!  Get ready to kiss your pampered ass goodbye!

A former Polish Defense Minister, Radek Sikorski, has attributed to the United States the sabotage of two pipelines, Nord Stream 1 and 2, which carry natural gas from Russia to Germany. “Thank you, USA,” Sikorski wrote on Twitter. Sikorski was Minister of National Defense from 2005 - 2007 and served as Deputy Minister of National Defense and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, previously. He is currently an elected member of the European parliament.

Tucker Carlson floated the possibility President Joe Biden is responsible for the suspected acts of sabotage on the Nord Stream pipeline.

Finally emerging: The beast, mark and number of the beast revealed

'There's no reason to fear, we shouldn't fear anything as believers'

By WND Staff

For thousands of years, millions of Christians have been intrigued by mysterious Scriptures discussing the beast, the number of the beast, and mark of the beast.

"Shabbat Night Live" recently featured an interview with Joe Kovacs, author of the new bestseller, "Reaching God Speed: Unlocking the Secret Broadcast Revealing the Mystery of Everything." to shed the light of truth on what Scripture means by the beast and everything associated with it.

Host Scott Laird, filling in for Michael Rood, said when most people think of the beast, "We think of automatically the devil. Evil. Everything bad. The beast. What is the beast? There is all kinds of mystery behind the beast. Nobody can seem to figure out, everyone has conjecture about what the beast is.

"Just like everything in God speed, you see this as a very child-like way, simple way of looking at something and I think we can find it very refreshing."

Kovacs said at the outset, "A lot of people tense up in anxiety when they hear the term 'beast.' There's no reason to fear.

"First of all, we shouldn't fear anything as believers in Jesus. The Bible tells us, 1 John 4:18: There is no fear in love. Instead, perfect love drives out fear, or casts out fear, depending on your translation."

Russia's Invasion of Ukraine is Jolting Germany into Rebuilding its Military

Forward by Bob Barney
 
The Plain Truth, since the sites inception has revealed that Russia in the End Times will not be the threat that many people think it will be. The future of Germany, however, will be a Nazi-like terror to come and the truths of the rise of the final world superpower is foretold primarily in the books of Daniel and Revelation.
 
We are committed to sharing with our readers the progression of the Holy Word of God's prophesies when they present themselves in the news of today. It is wise for us all to keep our finger on the pulse of what is going on globally, especially in Germany and Europe as a whole. 
 
The reason why is because these global advancements will impact America greatly as we are a part of the Lost Tribes of Israel along with Russia, Western Europe and Britain. We all will not have the power that we enjoy today and as you can see here in the United States of America, our standing of power hangs in the balance as these words are being written.

In some ways, it was a perfectly ordinary conversation — a trio of bright, ambitious German high school kids thinking out loud about what they might do after graduation. But their discussion reflected a sea change in social attitudes: They were considering joining the military.

A decades-old aversion to serving in the German armed forces — the scourge of Europe during World War II, underfunded and neglected after the Cold War’s end — is swiftly reversing itself as a result of the war in Ukraine.

These three 18-year-olds, all of them set to finish high school next year in the northern town of Koethen, are coming of age just as Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, is aiming to rebuild and revitalize its military after generations of lingering Nazi-era stigma.

One of the students, Steven Foerster, said he was drawn to high-tech opportunities in the Bundeswehr, Germany’s federal defense forces. His classmate Sarah Naumann thought joining up might be a good way for her to pursue medical studies. Jakob Fischer, another student, said he could see himself serving in a combat unit.

“The negative image isn’t really there anymore,” said Foerster. Naumann concurred: “The German army has become attractive again.”

Despite Germany’s strong postwar tradition of pacifism, Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine nearly seven months ago shocked the public into thinking very differently about national defense.

Three days after the war began, Chancellor Olaf Scholz — in office for less than three months — delivered a speech dubbed “Zeitenwende,” or watershed. With a single stroke, Germany embarked on the hitherto unthinkable: pledging to send heavy weapons to Ukraine and promising a $100-billion cash infusion for the military.

Those moves appear to have solid public backing. Polls suggest about two-thirds of Germans back the export of weapons to Ukraine and sanctions against Russia. The country has absorbed a flood of Ukrainian refugees. And according to a survey by the polling firm Civey, nearly a third of Germans say they have a better image of the Bundeswehr than before the Ukraine war.

War and Corruption Made Ukraine a Terrorist Twilight Zone

UNSAFE HAVEN

Terrorists of many stripes take advantage of a deeply divided society, while the suffering of ordinary people in the combat zone seems endless.

Alexander Reka\TASS via Getty

Ukraine arrested one of the world’s most dangerous international terrorists last month in a special operation conducted by local, Georgian and American special services. Al-Bara Shishani, the former commander of the so-called Islamic State and deputy head of its intelligence operations, was detained on the outskirts of Kyiv. Shishani had been presumed dead for more than a year, but was hiding here and plotting international terrorist attacks, according to Ukrainian authorities. In fact, this country torn by a Russian-backed separatist war has become a kind of Twilight Zone for terrorists of many stripes who have found ways to cross its borders and take advantage of a deeply divided society where law and order have been undermined by official corruption and public confusion.

Nuclear war between the US and Russia would cause a global famine and kill more than 5 BILLION people

Foreword by Bob Barney:

The Doomsday Clock was created by the Bulletin, an independent non-profit organization run by some of the world's most eminent scientists

God's Word hints that a nuclear holocaust will be the last world war for those of us remaining on earth

 In Matthew 24, Jesus warns about a time of tribulation, especially for pregnant women (radiation fallout is implied), and also nursing mothers. In Revelation 9:14, we read that upward of a billion Muslims will be killed in a single day. And another 2 to 4 billion in a year!

 The sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice speaking from the four horns of the golden altar that stands before the throne of God, 14 saying to the sixth angel, “Release the four mighty demons held bound at the great River Euphrates.” 15 They had been kept in readiness for that year and month and day and hour, and now they were turned loose to kill a third of all mankind. 16 They led an army of 200,000,000 warriors—I heard an announcement of how many there were.

That is only possible with something like atomic warfare.

As you can see, today's story is quite sobering, especially when you have moronic leaders like Joe Biden and his ilk doing anything and everything they can to start a war with Russia and China. These targeted countries have an abundance of atomic weapons! We have never been closer to a worldwide catastrophe than we are today!  Our fate lies in making sure by any means necessary, that we put the proper God-fearing leaders in charge or else these prophesied events are sure to happen!

What Life Would be Like in the Event of a Nuclear War.

A nuclear war between Russia and the US would trigger a global famine that would wipe out almost two-thirds of the world's population, a new study suggests.

'More than five billion people would die of hunger during the fallout from a full-scale conflict', researchers say, and with computer simulations to show that firestorms would release soot into the upper atmosphere and block out the sun.

This would in turn spark crop failure across the world. 

Lead author Professor Lili Xia, of Rutgers University in New Jersey, said: 'The data tells us one thing. We must prevent a nuclear war from ever happening.'

The modelling shines a fresh light on what would happen under six different war scenarios. This includes five smaller India and Pakistan conflicts as well as a large USA/Russia war. 

Such threat has been brought to the forefront following Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

5 Signs to Look for in the End Times

Prophecy One: America’s Death Knell

Knowing the identity of nations is the key to understanding end-time prophecy. (You can have this key by requesting a free copy of Herbert Armstrong’s book The United States and Britain in Prophecy.) Old Testament prophecies, for example, spring to life when we understand that the termIsrael is referring to modern-day America and the British Commonwealth.

The entire chapter of Ezekiel 33 is a tragic prophecy about Israel’s downfall. In verse 11, God laments the destruction of these people, saying “turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”

The Prophet Hosea saw a similar fate for the United States and Britain (Ephraim). “And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore, shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them” (Hosea 5:5). The Prophet Jeremiah also spoke of a time of unprecedented trouble in Jacob (also Israel, or the United States). “Alas! for that day is great,” he wrote, “so that none is like it: it is even thetime of Jacob’s trouble …” (Jeremiah 30:7).

According to each of these prophecies, we know it is the end time when the United States is stripped of its power and global supremacy and is overrun by its enemies. President Obama’s speech in Cairo was a sure warning that we now live in that time!

Curses-deut-28As one commentator noted in the London Times, he became the first Western leader since Napoleon to address Islam as a single bloc, thus legitimizing the Islamic extremist view that the world should be divided along religious lines. In his 54-minute, 6,000-word address, not once did the president use the word terrorism. His administration has carefully avoided using the term war on terror—opting instead for the obscurely worded “overseas contingency operation.” His repeated attempts to extend an olive branch to Iran and the rest of the Islamic world send an unmistakably clear signal to America’s enemies: The terrorists are winning. And they know it.

Jeffrey Kuhner, president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote about the global significance of the Cairo speech. “It will be remembered as the pivotal moment in history when the United States ceased to be a superpower,” he wrote. “Sapped of its self-confidence and sense of grandiose destiny, America chose the policy of appeasement over confrontation, lies over truth, illusion over reality” (Washington Times, June 13, emphasis mine throughout).

America’s position in the world, ideologically, morally, economically and geopolitically—especially in relation to radical Islam—has been declining for years. Obama’s capitulation in Cairo was a very public sign that America lacks the moral clarity to discern good and evil and the mental willpower to stand up against tyranny.

America’s enemies recognize weakness when they see it. The president’s overtures in Cairo, as sincere as they might be, will not result in better U.S.-Islamic relations, nor bring the people of the world together in peace. Instead, for all of his trouble, as Asia Times opined, the president will get “more megalomania from Iran, more triumphalism from the Palestinians, and less control over Iraq and Afghanistan. … It is hard to imagine any consequence except a steep diminution of American influence” (June 2).

N. Korea murdering Christians who secretly worship Jesus

image from www1.cbn.com
(CBN NEWS) -- The scope of persecution against Christians in North Korea has now reached the point where it is illegal to worship Jesus or even own a Bible. And the penalty is usually death.

According to reports, many believers are still gathering in secret to pray and share God's Word with one another.

Open Doors USA recently reported that government security guards discovered one such location where dozens of Christians had assembled together. The guards detained all of them. Then one by one, they killed every Christians in the room.

World Population Will Hit EIGHT BILLION This November

Bob Barney

                        The world's population is set to hit eight billion 
 
According to the United Nations in an updated report, the world's population is set to hit 8 billion by November of this year.

Originally the UN stated there would be 8.5 billion persons by 2030 and 10.4 billion by 2100 but then cited a reason for the spur in growth. They claim it is due to lifespans of those in the third world being lengthened as they have progressed to having better medical care, greater availability of modern medicines, and overall better farming techniques.  What the report failed to consider or to mention is how the war in Ukraine will affect these numbers as it is triggering a worldwide famine.  Experts warn that food shortages could kill millions in the world, including a percentage of the poor in Western Europe and the America's.

Here are some more of the latest population statistics:

India is due to surpass China as the world's most populous country in 2023. Even though both countries are coming in at more than 1.4 billion residents this year, the UN warns that high fertility will substantially challenge economic growth. According to the domestic census, India's population was 1.21 billion in 2011. Their census is conducted once a decade, but the government had postponed the 2021 census due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Eurostat, aka the European Statistical Office, the population of the 27 countries that make up the bloc had a decrease close to 172,000 from the previous year and over 656,000 from January 2020. This was a second year in a row the European Union's population shrank as the region reels from over two million deaths because of the coronavirus. 'In 2020 and 2021 the positive net migration no longer compensated for the negative natural change in the EU and, consequently, the EU’s total population has been decreasing,' it said, pointing to impacts from the pandemic.

Interesting to note, the number of deaths began outstripping births in the EU a decade ago, but immigration from outside the bloc helped offset the gap until the first year of the pandemic.

The European Union's population shrank for a second year running last year, the bloc's statistics office said on Monday
 
Did you know that God has a lot to say in the Bible about population?

For those interested in Bible prophecy and especially the Four Horsemen prophecies, the increase in population will result in the increase of people killed off during the coming Great Tribulation.  In Revelation chapter six, the second seal introduces a great world war. This war will result in the death of a fourth of the world's population.  That would be 2 billion people killed in a world war!

The sixth trumpet introduces two hundred million horsemen who kill one-third of the people; that is a mind-blowing number of almost 3 billion!  This will occur between the fortieth and forty-second month of the first part of the Tribulation and will bring us to fifty percent of the population being destroyed by God. These individuals have taken the mark of the Beast and are considered incorrigibles.  The fifty percent mentioned here killed only by the midway part of the Tribulation would encompass approximately four billion deaths due to war, famine, and disease.

Sadly, even after four billion deaths, the people of this age who do not know the plain truth about Jesus Christ and His message will continue to reject Him and continue to sin. The Apostle John, author of the Apocalypse, wrote these sad words, “And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts” (Rev. 9:20-21).  

There are some estimates mentioned that 90% of the people alive when the Tribulation starts will be killed; that's 7.2 billion people!   Jesus Himself declared that if He would not return to save us from ourselves, NO ONE would survive the Tribulation.  He claims that only because of the "elect ones" which are the true followers of Christ, will He save what is left of mankind and the world.  Stop and think about that for a moment; it is sobering indeed.

Conclusively. the boom in population that the UN ignorantly predicts will NOT be the future for this present world as the population will see a rapid decrease over our final 7 years.  The Good News is that Jesus will stop us from killing off mankind.

The 3Rd Black Horse of Revelation- Famine and Disease

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Cu9Nw0d3aF_1418702422288
It appears we’re in a phase where global systems of food and energy production are being intentionally dismantled in an effort to force into effect what the World Economic Forum (WEF) calls The Great Reset and the Rockefeller Foundation calls Reset the Table.

According to the WEF, capitalism is dead and we can no longer allow for free markets. Instead, we need a top-down governance, a New World Order (or One World Order), that can ensure “fair and equitable” distribution of dwindling resources. What they’re really saying, however, is that soon-to-be-useless people are gobbling up “their” resources.

They see us — you and me — as an existential threat to their luxurious lifestyle. So, their decades-old plan is to seize control of it all, transfer all wealth and private ownership into their own hands, and centrally control who gets what and when.

Other terms that also describe or play a part in this “reset” agenda include but are not limited to Agenda 2030, the Green Agenda, the New World Order, Sustainable Development, Build Back Better, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution — which has an unmistakable transhumanist component (i.e., the merging of biological or physical technologies in the human body).

What would happen if Russia launched a nuclear war?

Study shows firestorms would block out the Sun and trigger a 'Little Ice Age' – resulting in crop failure and ocean famine

Nuke

The Plain Truth Staff: (compiled from Daily Mail)

As America's president continues to provoke Russia over the Ukraine conflict, the moronic president of The United States is risking all our lives and the lives of billions of people around the world with nuclear annihilation.   Russia has issued several doomsday threats to the West amid heightened tensions over their war with Ukraine.

Just last month the Kremlin warned that Europe would disappear in a nuclear apocalypse – a verbal attack in response to Western allies promising more weaponry to Ukraine.

Now, new research suggests that if there ever were to be a nuclear war between Russia and the US, it would likely trigger a 'Little Ice Age' lasting thousands of years. 

Scientists "in the know" warn that "firestorms would release soot and smoke into the upper atmosphere that would block out the Sun and result in crop failure around the world."

In the first month following detonation, average global temperatures would plunge by about 13 degrees Fahrenheit. The analysis shows ocean temperatures would drop quickly (pictured) and not return to their pre-war state, even after the smoke from nuclear firestorms clears
 

In the first month following detonation, average global temperatures would plunge by about 13 degrees Fahrenheit. The analysis shows ocean temperatures would drop quickly (pictured) and not return to their pre-war state, even after the smoke from nuclear firestorms clears

In the first month following detonation, average global temperatures would plunge by about 13 degrees Fahrenheit.

That is more than during the most recent Ice Age, which lasted more than 100,000 years – reducing global temperatures by about 10 degrees Fahrenheit and killing off the woolly mammoth before it ended thousands of years ago.

The study is based on multiple regional and large-scale computer simulations. 

Lead author Dr. Cheryl Harrison of Louisiana State University said: 'It doesn't matter who is bombing whom, it can be India and Pakistan or NATO and Russia. Once the smoke is released into the upper atmosphere, it spreads globally and affects everyone.'

However, Russia's invasion of Ukraine has brought the threat of nuclear war to the fore, and this study is the first to provide a stark picture of the environmental impact if Putin were to reach for the nuclear button.

Nine nations, including the UK, currently control more than 13,000 nuclear weapons, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.

The analysis shows ocean temperatures would drop quickly and not return to their pre-war state, even after the smoke clears.

As the planet got colder, sea ice would expand by more than six million square miles and up to six feet deep, which would in turn block major ports including Beijing, Copenhagen, and St Petersburg.

It would then spread into normally temperate coastal regions and prevent shipping across the Northern Hemisphere. Food and supplies would get into some cities such as Shanghai however, ships are not prepared to face sea ice and it would become difficult.

The sudden drop in light and sea temperatures, especially from the Arctic to the North Atlantic and North Pacific, would kill algae — the bedrock of the marine food web.

Dr Harrison said: 'The current war in Ukraine with Russia and how it has affected gas prices, really shows us how fragile our global economy and our supply chains are to what may seem like regional conflicts and perturbations.'

It is not just the threat of nuclear war that could have such effects on Earth.

Volcanic eruptions also produce clouds of particles in the upper atmosphere and throughout history they have had similar negative impacts on the planet and civilization.

Dr Harrison said: 'We can avoid nuclear war, but volcanic eruptions are definitely going to happen again. There is nothing we can do about it so it is important when we are talking about resilience and how to design our society, that we consider what we need to do to prepare for unavoidable climate shocks. We can and must however, do everything we can to avoid nuclear war. The effects are too likely to be globally catastrophic.'

Oceans take longer to recover than land. In the worst US-Russia scenario it is likely to take decades at the surface and hundreds of years at depth.

Changes to Arctic Sea ice will likely last thousands of years and effectively be a 'Nuclear Little Ice Age,' said Dr Harrison. “Marine ecosystems would be devastated both initially and in the new ocean state, resulting in long-term global impacts to fisheries and other services”, she added. 

The study has been published in the journal AGU Advances.

Jesus not only predicted catastrophic end time wars, but He also had John record in Revelation the word, ‘wormwood’.  The Russian word for wormwood is Chernobyl! Chernobyl is a Ukrainian name for mug wort which is a species of artemisia known as 'common wormwood'. But as serious as that tragedy was, it did not even come close to poisoning a third of the waters of the Earth.

Louisiana State University Professor Cheryl Harrison is pictured presenting recent findings on the impacts of nuclear war on Earth's systems at the Nuclear Threat Initiative conference
Louisiana State University Professor Cheryl Harrison 
 
Let's read what Christ showed John:

Revelation 8:10 (Context)

7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Isn't it obvious that what is portrayed in the verse above is mass destruction on a world ending scale?  Nuclear war is one of several earth shattering events that will bring about the end of this age, and yes, crazy as you may think it sounds, will bring about the return of Christ to save humanity from morons like Biden and company!

Update:  Boris may get his wish, but he won't be a part of it!  See yesterday's Breaking News Announcement:

Breaking:Prime Minister Boris Johnson will QUIT and make 'statement to the country' TODAY after mutiny by top ministers

You can't make these headlines up!  It is amazing how the Bible itself has accurately predicted what is going to be occurring in the world while most of us don't pay a blind's eye to what is really happening.  The Faux News is merely distracting most of us working folks from being informed about what God has predicted so long ago. The Plain Truth has predicted since its inception that not only will Europe reunite as a revised Holy Roman Empire but become one again.  So today we read in WND.com that of all people, Boris Johnson used that exact term!

Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party, has always been controversial but he raised the volume last week when he suggested that the best way to unite Europe was by, "recreating the Roman Empire".

His vision of the Roman Empire in the 21st century is based on a partnership that includes Turkey and the North African states. At the NATO summit in Madrid last month, he told reporters that this would be based on the 'Mare Nostrum', the Latin term for the Mediterranean Sea. It is interesting to note that 19th-century Italian nationalist fascists used the term to describe Italy as the successor state to the Roman Empire. The term was again taken up by Benito Mussolini for use in fascist propaganda in a similar manner to Adolf Hitler’s lebensraum system of colonialism.

Hitler's Europe is the model of what Europe is to become again.  Most people today see the European Union as a civilized socialist democracy that many in America admire but that is going to change; Europe will unite again and re-arm.  Weak leaders like Obama, Biden and the RINO Republicans will cause Europeans to see that America can't be trusted to protect them.  Once Europe is a major power again a Hitler like monster will gain control of the empire.  In the book of Daniel, he is called the King of the North and in Revelation, he is the antichrist.

Is life for you about to change forever?

 

By Bob Barney (First published in May 2019)

Last chance

The mission of The Plain Truth is to warn the world of the coming events prophesied in the Bible that will bring impact and change to all our lives. For most, it is difficult to understand these ancient predictions and therefore impossible to see them coming to life in the here and now. The Plain Truth diligently scans world events and today’s headlines to help connect these dots and make the warnings forecasted thousands of years ago easier to understand.

Many will read about people like Ezekiel, Micah, and Zechariah and the prophesies of nations like Assyria, Ephraim, and Edom and not have a true understanding because they are not familiar with who the key players are in the world today. Once our readers are informed of who’s who in scripture then their eyes can be opened and as a result will be able to see how God is talking to every one of us from the pages of the Bible!

Here is an example of some of The Plain Truths teachings of who's who: Assyria is Germany, Edom is Turkey, and Ephraim is the United States of America. It is also important to know that the United States of America, Britain, Scandinavia, and France as well as most of the nations of Western Europe are in fact the Lost Tribes of Israel.  Since most prophecies concern these 10 lost nations, once we learn these facts, we can then understand that many if not most of these warnings from God were meant for our eyes, today!

Which brings me to some earth-shattering news...

In today's topic of our sun, it is important to understand that we may be on the verge of a cataclysmic event within the next two years!  The western world and life as we know it may be altered and this is not a Chicken Little type of a warning; it is in fact a warning from NASA and many of the top scientists of the world! This warning fulfills God's prophecies concerning the destruction of our nation by both natural and man-made events. Please take the time to educate yourself and be prepared for what could be the most life changing event in your lifetime. If you prepare yourself, you can survive what may befall the entire globe. If you are not prepared, you will end up like the victims of Katrina or Japan!

We will be following the happenings of these celestial events and hope you will continue to look for The Plain Truth in your daily lives.

Giant Sunspot Doubles Size in 24 Hours and Points Right at Earth

A huge sunspot that has doubled in size in just 24 hours now faces Earth, threatening to send a solar flare our way. If a nuclear bomb went off in the high atmosphere over the United States, it could possibly take out the electrical grids over most of the country. Likewise, a huge solar flare could create widespread devastation by knocking out electricity, experts say.

Finland Prepares for War

Inspired by past heroics against Red Army , Finns are buying rifles and plan to teach

White Death was the haunting and inspiring alias of Simo Hayha, one of the most prolific marksmen in military history. Finns are now finding inspiration in the slayer of the Red Army. Shrouded in the white, hooded snowsuit that gave him his sinister soubriquet, this ace Finnish sniper, who had honed his craft by hunting animals in the woods where he was raised, would crouch in crevices, or holes he dug in the thick snow. That he was just 5 ft 2 in tall made it easier for him to hide.


Is China about to Invade Taiwan?

Beijing looks to save £3.2tln in foreign reserves from sanctions in the event of a

The West's harsh economic sanctions on Russia prompted an emergency meeting in China, with the Ministry of Finance stating that Xi's administration had been put on alert by the surprise dollar freeze. The US is thought to be considering proportionate sanctions on China in the event it invades Taiwan, envisioning a similar scenario to the one playing out in Ukraine.


When blood spills on Passover and Easter, it’s time to build the Temple

What is Hamas' greatest fear? That Israel will start to build the Temple!

One would have hoped that yesterday’s unique convergence of Passover, Easter and Ramadan would have led to a wonderful day of peace and brotherhood in the spiritual capital city of Jerusalem. Alas, any dream of religious harmony on a day holy to all three great Abrahamic faiths, was shattered by Muslim rioters who turned the Temple Mount into a bloody battlefield hurling stones at Jewish worshippers and Israeli vehicles.

Palestinian terrorists have been fanning the flames of religious violence in recent weeks, as Israelis have been preparing for the Passover holiday, observed this week. On Thursday evening, April 8, a Palestinian terrorist attacked Tel Aviv’s busy Dizengoff Square where mainly secular Israeli young people were crowded at bars and cafes, tragically murdering three Jews in their 20s. 

Shortly after the deadly massacre, Hamas explained their motive and declared, “The continuing terrorism of the occupation and its crimes, attempts to Judaize Jerusalem and to perform sacrifices in the Al-Aqsa Mosque to build its so-called ‘Temple’ during what they call ‘Passover’ — against it stands blood and bullets.”

Through their statement, Hamas exposed their greatest fear: that Israel will start to build the Temple.

For thousands of years, Jews have been praying for a return to the Land of Israel. Over the last century, we have miraculously been restored to our homeland from the four corners of the earth, but are still awaiting the proper time to build the Temple. 

Judaism is incomplete without the Temple, and Passover is a prime example, as Deuteronomy makes clear:

“You are not permitted to slaughter the Passover sacrifice in any of the settlements that Hashem your God is giving you; but at the place where Hashem your God will choose to establish His name, there alone shall you slaughter the Pesach sacrifice, in the evening, at sundown, the time of day when you departed from Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 16:5,6)

Charred remains of ANOTHER Russian convoy: Drone pictures show aftermath of ambush by

Snaps released by the Ukrainian Ground Forces early this morning show the smouldering wreckage of several Russian armoured vehicles after they were caught up in a huge explosion orchestrated by Ukraine's special forces (SSO) operators on Monday. Russia this week is deploying more troops to areas around the city of Izyum, which lies a mere 25 miles from the Donbas region where Ukraine's armed forces are engaged in bitter fighting with the invaders, said Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleg Synehubiv. But having learned the destination and the route of this particular Russian convoy, SSO operators planted stacks of TNT at key points along the road and underneath a bridge, which were detonated as the Russian armour began to roll across.


WATCH GERMANY and Europe! Germany unveils decision that could change course of history

Bob Barney

excerpts from WND story

The Plain Truth has been predicting since we started online in 2008 (and long before that) that in the End Times, Russia will not be the threat people think. The major threat to world domination will be a revised Holy Roman Empire led by two beasts. One will be the Pope, who will spiritually align with an emperor of Europe (probably out of Italy or Germany) and that leader is known as the King of the North in Daniel 11, and The Beast of Revelation!  It's God's word.  In the end times, America, Western Europe and Britain (all part of the lost tribes of Israel), Russia and China will not have the power they enjoy today!

The leaders of Russia, Putin, and China -Xi Jinping who has been serving as General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) since 2012, and President of the People's Republic of China (PRC) since 2013.  Both of these leaders are not what the main stream media and world leaders project.  

Almost every leader of a major power today is a moron.  Biden, Putin, Boris Johnson, Xi-JinPing, Macron are all mentally are unable to understand the world and what is happening.  Putin is going to be the person who helped put a fascist - communist Europe together, and Xi is going to force Japan to nucleear re-arm itself and build a military, something that General MacArthur outlawed from doing in their Constitution, THAT HE WROTE!  He understand the most dangerous people ion the world are Japanese militarist, who actually caused WWII.   Remember only one country in the world accepted suicide! Hard Kari and Last year in Japan, more than 25,000 people took their own lives. That's 70 every day. The vast majority were men.

People often cite Japan's long tradition of "honorable suicide" as a reason for the high rate here, and they are correct! They point to the Samurai practice of committing "seppuku" or to the young "kamikaze" pilots of 1945, to show there are distinct cultural reasons why Japanese are more likely to take their own lives. This mindset would have no worries about sending every H bomb to China killing off the entire population, even if that meant their own destruction! 

Now, because of Putin's stupidity, After weeks of refusing to send military aid to Ukraine due to a longstanding policy never to send arms to conflict zones, Germany has reversed course.

On Saturday, Berlin buckled under the pressure of fierce criticism from other western European nations and has now opted to send 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger anti-aircraft defense systems out of its own arsenal and has also granted approval for the Netherlands and Estonia to ship some of their own German-originated weapons to aid Ukraine, Politico reported.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said the decision is due to the historic nature of Russia’s invasion and the need to defend its Ukrainian allies.

"The Russian attack marks a turning point. It is our duty to do our best to help Ukraine defend against the invading army of Putin. That's why we're supplying 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 stinger missiles to our friends in the Ukraine," he tweeted, as Axios reported.

Why is this happening?  A weak USA lead by a complete idiots, Joe Biden and Barak Obama (Oh yes, Obama is the destroyer of America) have forced Europe and Japan to realize that America does not have their back and that they must learn to raise their own powerful armies to defend themselves, not realizing that this will lead to totalitarianism in their own land.

In January, Germany had refused to approve Estonia’s request to send its own German-made howitzers to Ukraine as Russia appeared ready to launch an invasion, angering other European nations who called on Berlin to do more to help fend off the Kremlin’s aggression.

Germany is the largest and wealthiest nation in the European Union, so it undoubtedly plays a major role in the west’s ultimate effectiveness at helping to thwart Putin’s advances in Ukraine.

“The problem in Europe is that a lot of it is supplied by German manufacturers, and Germany so far is withholding consent,” an official to a western European nation said last week, as Politico reported. “That instantly limits the available stores in Europe.”

“Now is the time to help as much as we can,” another official said as Germany still maintained its refusal to help on Friday. “There are people dying and [there] will be more if we don’t do what is the bare minimum,” the official said, adding: “It is a question of survival for Ukraine.”

It is believed that the extensive pressure of other western allies ultimately drove Germany to reverse course.

How the Ukraine invasion unfolded minute-by-minute:

How the Ukraine invasion unfolded minute-by-minute

The first sign an invasion was imminent came at just before 12am Ukrainian time when Moscow-backed rebels issued a request for military assistance from Russia. Moments later, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered a defiant message to the nation, vowing his countrymen would 'fight back' in the event of an invasion, telling Moscow: 'When you attack us, you will see our faces, not our backs.' A frenzied string of diplomatic manoeuvres, including an emergency UN Security Council meeting in New York, were not enough to dissuade Putin, who declared a 'special military operation' at around 3am Ukraine time.
