Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany announced plans for a massive boost in defense spending in the latest historic policy shift in Germany triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, sending shockwaves across Europe.

I have studied for many years now the historical events of World Wars 1&2 in relationship to end times Bible prophecy, and a great many truths have been uncovered in the process. Not the least of which is the stunning revelation that the entire time of Jacob’s trouble timeline, up to and including the regathering of the nation of Israel, is contained in type within the time of Nazi rule in Germany. So it became clear to me that if Germany was the central figure in WWI, and undoubtedly the central figure in WWII, that the God who loves things in three’s would likely work it out that Germany would be the central figure in WWIII. This stunning announcement by the German chancellor Scholz moves the needle in giant steps towards that eventuality.

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJB)

After decades of doing the bare minimum with their military, perhaps to truly distance themselves from their Nazi past, modern-day Germany is now quadrupling their military spending, to the rousing applause of their EU allies. Be careful what you wish for, though, because you just might get it. And yes, I understand that this is for defense spending, but isn’t every high school football player taught that “the best defense is a good offense”? So let me just get this out there ahead of the curve, and tell you to keep your eye on Germany as all this drama and intrigue continues to unfold between Russia and Ukraine. The third time’s the charm.

Germany to Boost Military Spending in Latest Historic Shift

FROM MSN: Germany will channel 100 billion euros ($113 billion) this year into a fund to modernize the military, Scholz said Sunday in a speech to a special session of the lower house of parliament. By 2024, the government will spend at least 2% of gross domestic product each year on defense, he added, in line with a NATO target that Berlin has consistently failed to meet.

Scholz had been widely criticized by opponents and allies alike in recent weeks for what they perceived as dithering and weakness in the face of Russia’s mounting aggression toward Ukraine. In the past few days he has announced a series of radical changes to long-entrenched German policies following the full-scale attack ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the former Soviet republic.

Even before the invasion, Scholz halted the certification process for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline built to bring more of the Russian gas his country heavily relies on. On Saturday, he abandoned Germany’s traditional rejection of supplying weapons to conflict zones and gave way on expelling Russian banks from SWIFT, the system used for trillions of dollars worth of transactions between thousands of banks around the world. The willingness to supply Ukraine with military equipment including surface-to-air missiles and anti-tank weapons is in many ways the most dramatic move.

Such a wide-ranging rethink from Scholz and his government came unexpectedly and prompted suggestions that Europe’s biggest economy may finally be ready to punch its weight in the international arena, discarding decades of reluctance linked to its role in the 20th century’s bloodiest conflicts. Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, who was in parliament Sunday, called it a “truly historic moment.”

“With the invasion of Ukraine, we are in a new era,” Scholz, the Social Democrat who took over from Angela Merkel in December, told lawmakers. “On Thursday, President Putin created a new reality with his invasion of Ukraine. This new reality requires a clear response. We have given it.”

Germany’s Pivot:

  • 100 billion euros for new fund for military spending.
  • Annual defense outlays to rise to more than 2% of GDP.
  • Work with EU partners to build fighter jets, tanks.
  • Purchase armed Heron drones from Israel.
  • Increase gas storage volume by 2 billion cubic meters.
  • Purchase additional natural gas on the world markets.
  • Establish a national coal and gas reserve.
  • Build LNG terminals in Brunsbuettel and Wilhelmshaven

German defense spending in recent years has been hovering at around 1.5% and actually declined slightly as a share of output last year, according to NATO figures. That has led to criticism that the armed forces are consistently underfunded. Germany has reduced the number of its battle tanks to 300 from 4,700 since 1989 and the number of warplanes to 230 from 390, according to a report in Der Spiegel magazine. The number of troops has dropped to 180,000 from more than 300,000.

Friedrich Merz, the leader of Merkel’s Christian Democrats, signaled Sunday in his speech to parliament that the party is ready to work with the ruling coalition on agreeing the financing for the defense fund. As well as ramping up defense spending, Scholz also pledged to do more to protect energy supplies, including increasing gas-storage volume by 2 billion cubic meters, establishing a national coal and gas reserve and swiftly constructing two LNG terminals on the north coast.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Disney+ Releases ‘The Santa Clauses’ Movie Featuring A ‘We Love You Satan’ Montage Scene That Producers Say Is ‘Just A Joke’

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The wicked World of Disney have a message for millions of kids this Christmas season, and it’s ‘We Love You Satan’. Ho-ho-ho, y’all.

Disney+ just released their new ‘holiday classic’ called ‘The Santa Clauses’, and one of the hallmark scenes from the movie is where the elves are parading before Santa and Mrs. Claus, holding up a sign meant to say ‘We Love You, Santa’, but instead says ‘We Love You, Satan’. The actress playing Mrs. Claus thinks it’s the funniest thing she’s ever seen, emoting some very authentic laughter. This mess is presented to us in joke form, but go kid your Grandma, this is no joke at all. This is a ‘christmas present’ from the company that promotes all forms of the vilest abominations from their ‘kingdom’. Welcome to the Wicked World of Disney.

“His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;” Revelation 1:14 (KJB)

Now, we know this was not a joke, but a carefully placed and demonically clever message primed to hit the heart of millions of children this holiday season. And man oh man, the boldness of it is astounding! But the front lines is the place where the bullets fly, so we are shocked but absolutely not surprised in any way at all. In recent years, the Wicked World Of Disney has promoted cannibalism, transgenderism, drag queen shows for children, and abortion-on-demand all day long. Disney is the stated enemy of the purity of your child, the least you can do is stop going to their theme parks, stop watching their crappy movies, and stop supporting the end times mayhem they commit.

Ironically, when interviewed for ‘The Santa Clauses’, star Tim Allen said that he “pushed for Christian elements” to be written into the movie. Oh really, Tim? Must have missed the part in my King James Bible where it talks about children professing love for Satan. Unless you were thinking maybe Ephesians 5:6? Don’t go to the theaters, don’t stream this into your homes, make this piece of junk bomb at the box office and send Disney that message. TO THE FIGHT!!!

The Wicked World Of Disney Presents:

This is what Hollywood thinks of Christians, of the Bible and of Jesus Christ. Santa Claus is bad enough, but now a direct message saying ‘we love you Satan’ in a kid’s Christmas movie?? No words.

Just In Time For Saturnalia, Umm, I Mean Christmas, It’s The Holy Spirit Talking Board For You To Have A ‘Guaranteed Demon-Free’ Séance With Jesus

The Holy Spirit Board with its ‘Magic Cross planchette with metallic mirrored finish’ is straight from the pit of Hell.

I really wish this article today on the Holy Spirit Board was something from the Babylon Bee, but sadly, it is not. It’s hard to say what’s more demonic, the original Ouija board with its satanic gothic styling cues, or this one that presents Jesus in a mocking way, and drags the Holy Spirit into just for fun. The worst part is the number of Laodicean Christian churches that have already ordered it and are planning to have Fall Festival family fun nights. On sale at Amazon right now.

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJB)

This straight from the boardroom of Hell board game tells you how you can “communicate directly with Jesus Christ!” and “get all the answers straight from the man himself!”. Just for fun it comes complete with something called a ‘Magic Cross planchette’ shaped, of course, not like the biblical cross that the Romans crucified Jesus on, but styled after the Babylonian cross dating back to the rule of everyone’s favorite type of Antichrist, King Nebuchadnezzar.

This is wickedness, this is evil, and this is something that no Christian, no matter how backslidden, should have anything to do with. There is a website called ChurchLeaders.com, and they say that they are ‘dedicated to resourcing, informing, and connecting a community of church leaders for greater Kingdom impact worldwide.’ Well, they wrote a whole article on the Holy Spirit Board, including links to videos from the game manufacturer, and never once spoke a single word against it. Why not? This is where we are folks, on Day 976 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve.

Senate Republicans Side With Democrats To Help Pass The ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ That Forces States To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Twelve Senate Republicans voted with Democrats on Wednesday for the far-left ‘Respect for Marriage Act,’ which is reportedly designed to provide federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages.

It’s one thing to get hyped up on the marketing of political parties, like the ‘Red Wave’ that wasn’t, and it’s another thing completely to wake up the next morning and face the grim reality that nothing has changed. Here we are after the Midterms, and what do we see? Senate Republicans siding with Democrats to pass the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ that protects same-sex marriage. Yay!!! Make America Great Again!! Umm, no. America’s fate has been signed, sealed and about to be delivered. That ‘red wave’ you were expecting is actually going to be fire and blood coming down from God out of Heaven in judgement on this lost nation we live in.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:28,29 (KJB)

Just imagine for a moment that Donald Trump, who has just declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race, wins in a landslide. Does that make America great again? No, it does not and it will not. If the ‘Respect For Marriage Act’ came across President Trump’s desk, he would absolutely sign it. How do I know that? Because in 2016 he courted the LGBTQIA+ vote like any other politician. An America that was ‘great again’ would be against those things because God is against those things. Sorry to burst your bubble, kiddies, but it’s time someone told you the truth.

12 Senate Republicans Vote With Democrats for Far-Left ‘Respect for Marriage Act’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Lawmakers voted for the measure 62-37 after a bipartisan group of senators made changes to the bill to include a clause about religious liberty. With the amendment agreed upon, the bill will go back to the House before going to President Joe Biden. The White House has expressed support for the measure.

The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill include Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).

The Respect for Marriage Act (RFMA) was introduced following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, due to Democrats’ unfounded concerns that the Supreme Court could use the Dobbs decision to overrule the Court’s Obergefell gay marriage decisionThe measure passed the House in July with the help of 47 Republicans, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) agreed to postpone a vote until after the midterms so that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle could attempt to address religious liberty concerns.

RFMA would repeal the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act and would require the federal government to recognize any marriage that was “valid in the place where entered into.” The bill would also require every state to recognize every same-sex marriage that “is valid in the State where the marriage was entered into.”

As a report from Slate noted, the bill “does not go as far as Obergefell. In that decision, the Supreme Court directed every state to license same-sex marriages—that is, to issue a marriage certificate to same-sex couples. The RFMA does not codify this component of Obergefell.” According to the report:

So the RFMA does not force Texas to issue a marriage certificate to a same-sex couple. But it does force Texas to recognize a marriage certificate issued to a same-sex couple by New Mexico. In a post-Obergefell world, a same-sex couple in Texas could drive to New Mexico, obtain a certificate, and force Texas to respect their marriage like any other.

The bill does have a “private right of action” clause, which would allow “any person who is harmed by a violation of subsection (b)…[to] bring a civil action in the appropriate district court of the United States against the person who violated such a subsection for declaratory and injunctive relief.” The law would also allow an attorney general to bring civil action against any person who violates the law.  READ MORE
