Do YOU Hear War Drums??

Things just keep getting crazier.  The elite rulers of this world want their NEW WORLD ORDER. I believe there are different factions fighting each other for supremacy.  It truly looks like President Trump is working for the GOOD of America.  More importantly, he seems to be doing what GOD wants done, especially in the Holy Land.  What his personal motivation is, we cannot know.  Right now though, he seems to be the best bet we have to keep our national sovereignty and any semblance of individual freedom.  
The TRUTH is that the election was totally a sham.  It was a controlled effort to bring about the results desired by the UN, China and the Indo-European royal families.  They have convinced most of the world that they are working for peace and safety for everyone.  THAT IS A LIE.  They are working for complete CONTROL.  They are seeking to establish their TOTALITARIAN WORLD ORDER.  Believe me, they have nothing good in mind for you and me.  
The evidence clearly demonstrates that the election was a sham, but our corrupt system and society refuse to hear the truth.  I am convinced that things are not going to go well for us going forward.  There is NO WAY for there to be a happy ending.  Things could get ugly here very quickly.  Hold on to your HAT… It is going to be a WILD RIDE no matter what.cers

WATCH: Tucker exposes scrubbed video of Chinese professor saying they have people at top of America

Tucker Carlson exposed a video tonight that was scrubbed by the Chinese government of a professor admitting that they have people at the “top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence”: 


In the video, a top economics professor discusses how China was able to easily settle disputes with prior administrations because they have people at the top of America, specifically on Wall Street. But when Trump came a long, all that Chinese influence went away.

This professor also noted how Trump complained about Hunter Biden having a ‘global foundation’ and he essentially confirmed that the Biden family was in bed with the Chinese, that they helped him make these global deals.

But because of the lack of influence the Chinese have over the Trump administration, the professor suggested that these friendlies they have at the top of the American government went to work to get Biden elected.

UPDATE: Here’s the full two videos from Fox News if that works better for you:

Intelligence Insider: Joe Biden Will Cut Deal With Trump To Avoid Jail And Deep State Arrests To Follow

BATTLEFORWORLD.COM| December 7, 2020: According to Dr. Steve Pieczenik: …This is a sting operation out of cyber command. The left is ineffective, corrupt individuals who has been in power for 30 to 40 years, and have destroyed… This wasn’t an accident, it was already preplanned. When Trump came in he did a national emergency order…2019…the will and the power is there as well as the forces.

We have cyber designations on every ballot as well as every machine – we know where they are. We knew about Dominion, we know about SmartMatic – we have already deployed countless number of soldiers all over the United States. I think in Fort Hood, Texas and other places there will be major deployment of American soldiers.

We are not relying on local police, we are literally relying on our military to basically cull-out what the CIA and other sulcular institutions have been doing in terms of running this country.

The corruption was well know by Trump. It was also known by many of us in military intelligence and other areas way back in terms of Hillary Clinton, that’s why she did not come in and we are running now the sting operation. So Trump is there to stay, he’s not going anywhere. And in the Georgia speech he made clear that there’s no way that he’s leaving; there’s no way he will allow any of this corruption to continue. And Basically what he’s doing is a revolution and that’s really what we’re in. I don’t want to call it a Second Civil War, but basically it is a state of emergency so to speak where Trump anticipated this, used our braved men in the intelligence community to preempt Joe Biden and all the other people of the Democratic side. I think Biden understands this. I think he had a pretty good idea that he’s under indictment, his son (Hunter Biden) is – and my suspicion is that Joe Biden will resign as will his son because either or both might go to prisonMy suspicion is Trump will remain, he will be president for the next 8 years – and Biden will concede and somewhere there will be remuneration.

Owen: You said 8 years. Is that intentional?

Pieczenik: Yes. It’s not a Floydian slip. I do not believe in Floyd.

Owen: So is that based on the fact that for 4 years they have been sabotaging the Trump agenda with all their fraud? (i.e. Russiagate, the Steele dossier, etc.) Is that how he would legitimized 4 more years?

Pieczenik: It’s not just 4 more years of his administration, he would legitimized it simply because he came in understanding very well that he was there to become the best president we have ever had. …And he knows that he could not have accomplished everything he wanted in the first 4 years. So he need another 4 years and he wants to position Pence and others in the Republican Party to have another 4 years beyond that. So what I’m talking about is not just another 4 years and the past 4 years, – I am talking about another 8 years. And that’s exactly what he has in mind.

Trump is the first president in the 21th century to say, I will not allow any form of corruption to exist in our voting system. Simple as that. And I will remain in power.

President Trump utilized all the men and women in our intelligence community and the White House…special forces – these are names I told you about before but they are quiet, these are the real heroes… And as Adam Curry said on one of his shows, they are not going to televise The Revolution.

Dr. Steve Pieczenik gives him insider information regarding Biden’s Deal with Trump regarding the pedophile and deep state roundups coming in the future


Hal (Turner) had a Bulletin about a possible military take down on the 15th of Dec.

I have spoken with ex Military, US Air Force, Special Ops.

For the laymen, it’s a four man fire-squad with High-Altitude, Low-open (HALO) capability, who drop into future battlefield locations to alter the terrain to whatever specs are required for maximum victory.

The guy was referred to me by a friend I used to work with in my years with FBI JTTF.   He knows a thing or two, and still has a few contacts who are active duty.

He confirms to me this evening the military is keenly aware of all the talk

about Civil War and is making actual plans in the event such an eventuality takes place.   Here are the specifics of what he told me:

“Things are expected to start sliding into a bad area after 15 December. Military Intel, including very senior level Commanders, fully expect things to “go kinetic” rather quickly after Christmas, and definitely into the new year.

The military has identified two likely paths:

Path 1.The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) gives Trump the win.

Whether they VOID the election in states with Dominion computers

(because there is now absolutely solid forensic PROOF those machines intentionally mis-tabulated votes in Biden’s favor) which results in a “Contingency Election” inside Congress, or Order a new election, either scenario is as good as a win for Trump.

The Democrats will not recognize a second vote. If Trump wins a supreme court case the Democrats will call China, and the UN to invade the United States as a means to overthrow Trump as a “dictator.”

He also told me “*****China is already prepping for this possible

outcome with forces in both Mexico and Canada.*****”

Path 2 .SCOTUS tells Trump to stand down, and declares Biden the next President.

In this event Trump’s plan is ALLEGEDLY to declare Martial Law, and force a re election via paper ballots only with total military oversight.

This brings us back to the Democratic plan to ask for help overthrowing a dictator.

While the paths are two, the outcome is the same. We are heading towards a war.

It will be called a Civil War, though it’ll be China and maybe even Russian forces invading our land.

He wrapped-up his briefing to me by saying “The series of events leading to this outcome will begin 15 December, and will break out in full kinetic warfare anytime there after up until20 January.

If you see foreign troops marching under arms anywhere in this country, they are to be immediately attacked with all deliberate, lethal force.   Any local official who sides with invading forces is a Traitor who is to be dealt with on-sight.

China has a two-hundred-million man army. It will take every last American fighting side-by-side to defend our land.   There is no room for Traitors and we cannot spare a jailer crew to treat Traitors nicely for trial.  Deal with them on the spot and move on.

The Coronavirus And the 200 Million Man Army.

The Apostle John around a.d. 90, recorded a prophecy about a military force that would emerge in the end time: “And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them”

This is describing a military force of 200 million men. John refers to this 200 million-man army as “the kings of the east.” and the direction they will be coming from is over the Euphrates river. ( Revelation 16:12, ” And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”) Asia! China, Russia India etc….

This huge force will be a confederacy of Asian and Eastern nations. With Russia and China as the lead nations which will provide a bulk of the man power and equipment.

As the virus seems to be getting under control in China. Other viruses may arise and have to be combatted, just remember that China will play a major role in end time events and one the roles it plays is adding huge numbers of man power to the biblical prophesied Asian confederation called in the Bible as The ” King’s of the East.”

2028 END WEBSITE – Who is Donald Trump? Antichrist? Savior? In 2016 a lady had a terrifying dream about Donald Trump that God confirmed upon her waking. Don’t miss this video! CONTACT THIS LADY YouTube Channel:…

Trump may have to make a decision to let this election go.  Sad for our nation.  However, the left are insane enough to take him out.  If he does let it go, he has the opportunity to run again in 2014.  Which would fall in with the vision that we just heard about in the above video.  Only time will tell.  We will have to wait for things to play out. 
Lara Trump says she thinks Donald Trump will serve four more years.

Trump ‘confirms he’ll run for president again in 2024’ in public for first time    (excerpts only)

So far, Grover Cleveland has been the only US president to serve two non-consecutive terms 

Donald Trump has finally confirmed in public for the first time that he wants to run for the presidency again in 2024, something that he has been discussing for weeks in private, even as he has still not formally conceded the 2020 race.

Videos of a White House Christmas party on Tuesday evening, reported by Politico and other US media, showed Mr Trump addressing a gathering comprised mainly of Republican National Committee members.

“It’s been an amazing four years,” the president told the group. “We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
Well, we know that CHINA is the only country in history that is able to place into action a 200 Million Man Army.  What will they be able to do when they join forces with NORTH KOREA?

SEOUL (Reuters) – In a congratulatory message to Kim Jong Un for the founding anniversary of North Korea’s ruling party, Chinese President Xi Jinping said he intends to deepen relations with Pyongyang, North Korean state media reported on Saturday.

We have an intent to successfully defend, consolidate and develop the China-Korea relations together with Korean comrades and propel the long-lasting and stable development of the socialist cause of the two countries,” North Korean state news agency KCNA quoted Xi as saying.

The US China Cold War is heating up! A new Pentagon report by the Department of Defense says China has surpassed the US military in some regards. The China navy is the largest in the world and that could spell big trouble in the South China Sea and for Taiwan. The Czech Republic and Germany stand up for Hong Kong and Taiwan. Mongolians protest in the thousands in Inner Mongolia. Jackie Chan is in trouble! Australia gets called white trash. And the China India border dispute along the LAC Line of Actual Control in Ladakh heats up.

First published at 12:33 UTC on October 18th, 2020.

Thousands of Communist Chinese Troops are amassing in Western Canada – Why? They are likely preparing for an invasion of Western USA. There is video footage from 2018 here but does that change the fact? Chinese military are in Canada. Chinese military are also at the border with Mexico. FACT.They invested heavily in USA under what was assumed to be a Hillary Clinton presidency. Clinton crime family sold out USA to China along with Joe Biden and other corrupt scum politicians.When Trump got elected (surprise!) he pulled the plug on Communist CCP China and pulled out of major trade with them crippling them economically. He gave the ball to India, which now China and India are in skirmish on their disputed border. I wonder why??? China answered Trump with the Lab fabricated China-Flu...which failed….then funded (from where??) Marxist rioters as Antifa/BLM burning looting and terrorizing Democratically run cities with bought and paid for Democrat ‘stooge’ politicians ...who is funding all this?? CCP China and Sorosthats who…so now here they are at our back door coming to take what they think they ‘bought and paid for’ by criminal politicians like Biden,Clinton and the rest of the corrupt Democrats and some Republicans as well. Why is this happening right before the election? If Trump wins the election – all of those corrupt politicians go to jail at bestexecuted for treason is more likely. Soros will be hunted down like the Nazi scum he is and China’s economy – crippled by Trump’s trade deal with India will suffer for decades if it can even make a comeback at all. So now China planting tens of thousands of troops in Canada is possible via the FIPA Agreement which no Canadian authority can contest Chinese military troops on Chinese owned land in Canada – ratified in 2019 which cannot be contested by Canada for 30 years. this is almost guaranteed a sellout by Justin Trudeau to avoid his up coming arrest and imprisonment for crimes against humanity, pedophilia and human trafficking. Follow the names on the Epstein flight log and ironically they are all the players we are talking about, all who incidentally support Biden – ALL OF THEM. Coincidence? Now we know our likely enemy so… Now is the time….its Time! Get prepared. Get all the guns and ammunition, food, dry goods, clothing, gasoline and anything you can get to store and cache away. Study your area and neighborhood for high ground and choke points to setup for ambush – hit and run tactics against larger forces using knowledge of the land and area to escape. Capture weaponry and keep amassing trusted people for your group. If this is all whats really going on, the troops there are likely ‘Shock Troops’ – designed to do the most damage and killing as quickly as possible in the shortest amount of time.They are here to kill you, your family and take everything you own. They wont be taking prisoners – its just more mouths to feedand less food for them, so don’t believe it if they tell you to give up your guns you wont be harmed. The idea is NOT to die for your Country…make those Communist bastards die for theirs….they have a surprise coming….and its behind every blade of grass… Get Ready Patriots! #TRUMP2020 #2A #WWG1WGA



I said all that to say this.  GOD is not scared!  I showed you that the armies of our enemies greatly outnumber us.  When you consider that the forces of evil have taken the majority of the people through manipulation and mind control, it looks even scarier.    HOWEVER…  That is when GOD shines the MOST.  When everything looks hopeless and God’s people are outnumbered… GOD stands at the ready to show HIS POWER.  What can hinder GOD from delivering whether by the many or by the few??  IF GOD be for us, WHO can be against US?

And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord:and the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: and because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which are in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds. And so it was, when Israel had sown, that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them; And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; for both they and their camels were without number:and they entered into the land to destroy it. And Israel was greatly impoverishedbecause of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the Lord.And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord because of the Midianites, That the Lord sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage; And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land; And I said unto you, I am the Lord your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.And there came an angel of the Lord, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. Anthe angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. And the Lord said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me. Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again. And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it. And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so. Then the angel of the Lord put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the Lord departed out of his sight. And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the Lord, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord God! for because I have seen an angel of the Lord face to face. And the Lord said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. Then Gideon built an altar there unto the Lord, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Take thy father’s young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baalthat thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it:And build an altar unto the Lord thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down. Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the Lord had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father’s household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night. And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down, and the grove was cut down that was by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar that was built. And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing. Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it. And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar. Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar. Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the children of the east were gathered together, and went over, and pitched in the valley of Jezreel. But the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him. And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh; who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them. And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said, Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; and if the dew be on the fleece only, and it be dry upon all the earth beside, then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said. And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water. And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew. And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground. Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.  And the Lord said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands,lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead.And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.And the Lord said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go. So he brought down the people unto the water: and the Lord said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water. And the Lord said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand:and let all the other people go every man unto his place.So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley. And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand.But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host: And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that were in the host. And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude. And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along. And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host. And it was so, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the Lord hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian.And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do. When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands. And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon. And they stood every man in his place round about the camp; and all the host ran, and cried, and fled.And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the Lord set every man’s sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host:

about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.
…Then the men of Israel said unto Gideon, Rule thou over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son also: for thou hast delivered us from the hand of Midian. And Gideon said unto them, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you: the Lord shall rule over you.Judges 6-8


Now it came to pass upon a day, that Jonathan the son of Saul said unto the young man that bare his armour, Come, and let us go over to the Philistines’ garrison, that is on the other side. But he told not his father. And Saul tarried in the uttermost part of Gibeah under a pomegranate tree which is in Migron: and the people that were with him were about six hundred men; And Ahiah, the son of Ahitub, Ichabod’s brother, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the Lord‘s priest in Shiloh, wearing an ephod. And the people knew not that Jonathan was gone. And between the passages, by which Jonathan sought to go over unto the Philistines’ garrison, there was a sharp rock on the one side, and a sharp rock on the other side: and the name of the one was Bozez, and the name of the other Seneh. The forefront of the one was situate northward over against Michmash, and the other southward over against Gibeah. And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour,Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that the Lord will work for us: for there is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few. And his armourbearer said unto him,  all that is in thine heart: turn thee; behold, I am with thee according to thy heart.  Then said Jonathan, Behold, we will pass over unto these men, and we will discover ourselves unto them.If they say thus unto us, Tarry until we come to you; then we will stand still in our place, and will not go up unto them. But if they say thus, Come up unto us; then we will go up: for the Lord hath delivered them into our hand:and this shall be a sign unto us. And both of them discovered themselves unto the garrison of the Philistines: and the Philistines said, Behold, the Hebrews come forth out of the holes where they had hid themselves. And the men of the garrison answered Jonathan and his armourbearer, and said, Come up to us, and we will shew you a thing. And Jonathan said unto his armourbearer,Come up after me: for the Lord hath delivered them into the hand of Israel.And Jonathan climbed up upon his hands and upon his feet, and his armourbearer after him: and they fell before Jonathan; and his armourbearer slew after him. And that first slaughter, which Jonathan and his armourbearer made, was about twenty men, within as it were an half acre of land, which a yoke of oxen might plow. And there was trembling in the host, in the field, and among all the people: the garrison, and the spoilers, they also trembled, and the earth quaked:so it was a very great trembling. And the watchmen of Saul in Gibeah of Benjamin looked; and, behold, the multitude melted away, and they went on beating down one another. Then said Saul unto the people that were with him, Number now, and see who is gone from us. And when they had numbered, behold, Jonathan and his armourbearer were not there. And Saul said unto Ahiah, Bring hither the ark of God. For the ark of God was at that time with the children of Israel. And it came to pass, while Saul talked unto the priest, that the noise that was in the host of the Philistines went on and increased:and Saul said unto the priest, Withdraw thine hand. And Saul and all the people that were with him assembled themselves, and they came to the battle: and, behold, every man’s sword was against his fellow, and there was a very great discomfiture.Moreover the Hebrews that were with the Philistines before that time, which went up with them into the camp from the country round about, even they also turned to be with the Israelites that were with Saul and Jonathan. Likewise all the men of Israel which had hid themselves in mount Ephraim, when they heard that the Philistines fled, even they also followed hard after them in the battle. So the Lord saved Israel that day:

And they smote the Philistines that day from Michmash  1 Samuel 14

My message to you is this… GOD IS IN CONTROL.  He honors FAITH.  DO YOU HAVE the kind of FAITH it takes to stand?


If you find it ridiculous to take the biblical accounts seriously, you should read this next piece.   It will surely surprise you to learn that many times throughout history, military officers have studied the bible as a training manual for strategy.  Check it out.  


WWI Victory Gained Using Bible

How the Bible Influenced a WW1 Victory

And the Philistines mustered to fight with Israel, thirty thousand chariots and six thousand horsemen and troops like the sand on the seashore in multitude. They came up and encamped in Michmash, to the east of Beth-aven. 

– 1 Samuel 13:5 (ESV)

The Bible has greatly influenced our world, sometimes in surprising ways, such as a WWI victory gained. On November 11th, 2018, many countries around the world celebrated the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, which ended the long and brutal fighting between the Allies and Germany in World War. In America, it is has grown into Veterans Day, which honors the nation’s veterans from all its wars. It is a time to remember history and reflect on its lessons; including the special circumstances surrounding Major Vivian Gilbert and the British forces under General Allenby. A specific passage in the Bible would help lead his men to victory, sparing them from the daunting task of storming the enemy directly into their line of fire.

During WWI, a group of British troops arriving in Palestine (today, the nation of Israel) purchased Bibles; not necessarily for purposes of prayer. Instead, they were used to study the geography. The soldiers saw them as great geographical resources to maneuver about the land. This would prove to be very beneficial to success in battle and a WWI victory using the Bible.

Generations have applied the wisdom from many accounts in the Bible to their own lives. However, many have questioned whether the settings and history found in biblical accounts can be trusted evidence and are grounded in the real world. What follows is a brief review of the passage and an example of how relying on the trustworthiness of this account enabled the British forces to conquer the area that was a stronghold for the Ottoman Turks by mimicking a battle plan as told in the Book of 1 Samuel.

Biblical Battle plans: WWI Victory Gained Using Bible

The Philistines were camped in the deep valley west of Jericho, around the town of Michmash. When Israel’s King Saul with his army saw their great numbers, they knew they were in trouble. Impatient for the prophet Samuel to arrive to make an offering and pray, many Israelites scatter and hide in caves.

In desperation, Saul takes it upon himself to offer what was for him an unauthorized sacrifice. When Samuel does finally arrive, he predicts that the kingdom will be torn in half and given to another man. After Samuel departs, Saul sees that only six hundred people remained with him. The Philistines, however, had assembled thirty thousand chariots and six thousand horsemen and troops (1 Samuel 13:5).     

Within the passes, by which Jonathan sought to go over to the Philistine garrison, there was a rocky crag on the one side and a rocky crag on the other side. The name of the one was Bozez, and the name of the other Seneh. The one crag rose on the north in front of Michmash, and the other on the south in front of Geba. Jonathan said to the young man who carried his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised. It may be that the LORD will work for us, for nothing can hinder the LORD from saving by many or by few.” 

– 1 Samuel 14:4-6 (ESV)   The biblical account tells us that Jonathan (Saul’s son) decides to do something daring. He climbs with his armor bearer amongst the steep cliffs and craggy rocks (called “Seneh and Bozez”), rather than going around. When a squad of enemy lookouts saw them, the Philistines called for them to come up.

Then Jonathan said, “Behold, we will cross over to the men, and we will show ourselves to them. If they say to us, ‘Wait until we come to you,’ then we will stand still in our place, and we will not go up to them. But if they say, ‘Come up to us,’ then we will go up, for the LORD has given them into our hand. And this shall be the sign to us.”  – 1 Samuel 14:8-10 (ESV)

Jonathan seeing this as a sign that the Lord was with them, went up and overthrew the Philistines, throwing their army into panic and confusion, ultimately giving the Israelites the victory.

Then Jonathan climbed up on his hands and feet, and his armor-bearer after him. And they fell before Jonathan, and his armor-bearer killed them after him. And that first strike, which Jonathan and his armor-bearer made, killed about twenty men within as it were half a furrow’s length in an acre of land. And there was a panic in the camp, in the field, and among all the people. The garrison and even the raiders trembled, the earth quaked, and it became a very great panic. – 1 Samuel 14:13-15 (ESV)

History Repeats Itself

Fast forward to General Allenby’s troops in 1918, towards the end of the First World War – The British planned an attack in an area known as Michmash. The Turks were entrenched in the same valley that the Philistines had been 3,000 years earlier.

General Sir Edmund Allenby, First World War. (credit: Imperial War Museum, © IWM (Q 82969))One of the British majors, Vivian Gilbert, thought the name Michmash sounded familiar. Searching passages in one of the recently purchased Bibles, he found it and reported to his commanding officer.An excerpt from the historical account in The Romance of the Last Crusade (pages 185-6) tells us:



“And the major read on how Jonathan went through the pass, or passage of Mickmash, between Bozez and Seneh, and climbed the hill dragging his armour-bearer with him until they came to a place high up, about “a half acre of land, which a yoke of oxen might plow”; and the Philistines who were sleeping awoke, thought they were surrounded by the armies of Saul and fled in disorder, and “the multitudes melted away.” Saul then attacked with his whole army. It was a great victory for him; his first against the Philistines, and “so the Lord saved Israel that day, and the battle passed
over into Beth Aven.”

The brigade major thought to himself: “This pass, these rocky headlands and flat piece of ground are probably still here; very little has changed in Palestine throughout the centuries,” and he awoke the brigadier. Together they read the story over again. The the general sent out scouts, who came back and reported finding the pass, thinly held by the Turks, with rocky crags on either side–obviously Bozez and Seneh; whilst in the distance, high up in Mickmash the moonlight was shining on a flat piece of ground just big enough for a team to plough.

The general decided then and there to change the plan of attack, and instead of the whole brigade, one infantry company alone advanced at dead of night along the pass of Mickmash. A few Turks met were silently dealt with. We passed between Bozez and Seneh, climbed the hillside and, just before dawn, found ourselves on the flat piece of ground. The Turks who were sleeping awoke, thought they were surrounded by the armies of Allenby and fled in disorder.

We killed or captured every Turk that night in Mickmash; so that, after thousands of years, the tactics of Saul and Jonathan were repeated with success by a British force.

British WW1 Victory over Turks

If Major Gilbert had not recalled the biblical text, the battle may have ended quite differently.

There is a common saying that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. It usually refers to avoiding bad decisions that are a result of ignoring the past. However, the same can be said for repeating successes. Learn from the wisdom of history, so that good outcomes are replicated.

The British army was able to study the terrain and the description in the Bible to know that this Michmash they were about to descend on was the same as the one described in 1 Samuel. The accounts in the Bible are rooted in reality.

What is so notable is that these soldiers put so much trust in the details of a 3,000-year-old narrative. It appears their trust was well placed. – Keep Thinking.


The following story relates to the one above, it took place in 2017 and it ties in with President Donald Trump.  Worth the time to review it.  I hope it blesses you. 

History repeats itself as Lord Allenby captures Jerusalem’s Old City, again

At festive, costumed centennial event Monday, the general’s great-great nephew reads out his ancestor’s declaration from the steps of the Tower of David

For a couple of hours on Monday afternoon in Jerusalem’s Old City, there was partying like it was 1917.

World War I Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) soldiers, Turkish pashas, local religious leaders, ladies in long skirts and bonnets — and the legendary T.E. Lawrence — celebrated as they awaited the arrival of Field Marshall Edmund Allenby, commander of the British Army’s Egyptian Expeditionary Force, to officially liberate Jerusalem from Ottoman rule.

A century after the Great War, these actors played the long-dead Allenby and other historical figures to the delight of the many hundreds gathered from around Israel and the world who were genuinely excited to join in the festive reenactment.

Exactly 100 years ago on December 11, 1917, General Allenby delivered the British Army’s Proclamation of Martial Law in Jerusalem in seven languages from the steps of the Tower of David.

For some, like eighth-generation Jerusalemite Shalom Bagad, showing up on Monday was coming full circle.

My mother Shulamit was here exactly on this very date in 1917 to watch Allenby enter Jerusalem and give his proclamation,” Bagad said.

The proclamation, promising religious tolerance and protection of all holy sites, gave the ancient city’s inhabitants hope for a brighter and more peaceful future. The British capture of Jerusalem, coming as it did in December and a month after the Balfour Declaration, was interpreted by the Jews as a Hanukkah miracle and the beginning of the fulfillment of revived Jewish sovereignty. The Christian world regarded it as a Christmas gift, the return of Christian rule to Jerusalem for the first time since the fall of the Crusader Kingdom.

Aside from signs of modernity like TV cameras and smartphones, on Monday it appeared history was repeating itself. The only thing missing was 1917 Allenby’s horse, from which he dismounted before entering on foot in a show of humility and respect for the Holy City and its people, who had suffered under repeated conquests throughout the centuries.

After the actors and crowd proceeded through the Jaffa Gate to the front of the Tower of David citadel (now a museum), a ceremony very similar to that of a century ago took place.

As the Muslim call to prayer and church bells rang out in the background, the proclamation was read out in eight languages this time (Armenian being the addition). The English version, which came first, was read by Viscount Henry J. H. Allenby of Megiddo and Felixstowe, the great-great nephew of General Allenby.

Allenby, on his first-ever visit to Israel, was followed by representatives of Jerusalem’s various faith communities, who translated the proclamation into French, Italian, Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Russian and Armenian.

The master of ceremonies, linguistics expert Avshalom Kor, pointed out that Allenby’s proclamation constituted the first official, quasi-governmental use of Hebrew in the Land of Israel since the Roman conquest of Jerusalem in 70 CE.

As Lord Allenby’s mother Sara Viscountess Allenby, John Benson (great-grandson of General John Shea, who accepted the Turkish surrender) and other dignitaries looked on, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat gave a short speech about the city’s past and political present.

Seizing the opportunity to address local constituents and Israeli voters, Barkat switched to Hebrew after initially praising General Allenby in English.

The mayor emphasized Jerusalem’s unity and openness to all religions and cultures “under Israel’s rule and sovereignty.” He also mentioned President Donald Trump’s December 6 declaration of the United State’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

No one should minimize that declaration’s importance. It will only strengthen the unity and peace in Jerusalem,” Barkat said.

Watching from the crowd, Bagad said he was on the same page as the mayor.

I consider Trump’s declaration like Allenby’s. They are both bricks in consolidating our right to the Land of Israel, which goes back to [the biblical patriarch] Abraham,” he said.

While others in the middle-aged and up crowd tightly packed into the narrow plaza in front of the Tower of David cheered Barkat’s statements, it was unclear how many were as supportive as Bagad.

The few younger Israeli adults and children scattered among the crowd seemed unsure what all the hoopla was about.

“I think it’s about something that happened around 70 years ago when Israel was born,” said 10-year-old Elon, who was in attendance with his class from a religious public school in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter.

Even some of the young actors admitted to having been ignorant of Allenby and his proclamation before signing on to this gig.

“I knew a little bit from high school, but not much. I had to do some research,” said Eden Ankory, who played a young colonial British woman.

“I didn’t know a thing. I only learned about this from reading up on the subject this past week,” said her thespian colleague Yasmin Bar-Shalom.

In contrast, Kenneth Thomson, who came all the way to Jerusalem from Vancouver Island, Canada, for Monday’s event, feels very close to the events of December 1917.

Eight years ago, Thomson was going through his grandfather Lt. Douglas Thomson’s old photo albums and discovered a picture of him standing in uniform in front of the Jaffa Gate.

I had visited Israel before that, and recognized the Jaffa Gate. But I had had no idea that my grandfather had a connection to Jerusalem,” Thomson said.

Thomson discovered that his grandfather fought in the Palestine campaigns and was in Jerusalem as a member of the British Army’s Essex Regiment. Thomson thinks his grandfather might have been an aide-de-camp to Allenby, and he knows for certain that Allenby awarded him the Military Cross after he was wounded in the Battle of the Somme in France.

“I have that medal, but it’s in a safe deposit box back at home and I didn’t want to chance bringing it,” Thomson said.

He did, however, lend photos from his grandfather’s photo album to The Tower of David Museum for use in its newly-opened exhibition,  “A General and A Gentleman: Allenby at the Gates of Jerusalem.”

Thomson said it was a special treat to meet the current Lord Allenby and General Shea’s great-grandson, John Benson, both of whom he spoke with after the official ceremony ended.

Benson was delighted by the size of the crowd that had shown up, and to see the affection that people have for the events of a century ago in Jerusalem.

Observing the large amount of Israeli and international media present, Lord Allenby expressed regret that people in the UK were not equally as interested in this centennial anniversary.

He’ll share his experiences in Jerusalem when he gets home, and expects it will take a while to process everything.

“It’s a lot to absorb emotionally,” he said.

Lady Allenby, proudly wearing the engraved Jerusalem Cross first given by General Allenby to his wife and passed on through the generations to her, appeared to be enjoying every moment.

“I’m overwhelmed. It’s just been fantastic,” s
