BIG PICTURE FOR HUMANITY

The time has arrived for not only the 327+ million in America– but for all scattered on this earth to see reality rather than living their own life within the tunnels of darkness filled with that grey cloudiness of delusion.

Now, once again, because my life is nothing but time since the end of 2006, I have created 16 free websites, perhaps a thousand lengthy blogs and even wrote a 474-page book titled “Message For This Entire Human Race” back in 2012.

destruction

And it’s not as if I have never read the Bible; however, the images below should shake everybody’s faith in right religion being wrong– Unless our God of love enjoys the death and torture spread all over this planet earth.

Welcome to human rule.

My whole point is based on all that I have been striving to learn concerning true corruption with misleading information on every subject from A-Z, and when the B letter comes up for discussion, I say again it’s not as if I have never read the Bible– but rather it has taken me 30 years to realize just how misled even through religion our entire human race has become.

Why is that? How can that be?

The evidence is missing which has been replaced by hearsay, and word of mouth tradition which has passed through generations and thousands of years.

This particular verse is just one example out of thousands. . .

“But it happened that as one was cutting down a beam, the axe head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Oh no, my master! It was borrowed!” The man of God said, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut off a stick and threw it in there, and made the iron [axe head] float.” 2 Kings 6:5-6

My question is this– Did you see it as written? Were you there? and the same holds true on all subjects concerning if there is, or is not solid evidence. Today, concerning the New World Order, Georgia Guidestones, False Christianity, and the uncountable misleading religions and beliefs worldwide: Where is the supporting evidence based on fact?

This site reveals sinister sites we all ought to take a great interest in understanding.

https://vigilantcitizen.com/category/sinistersites/

This link reveals much about the origins of Christianity

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/PLg84J/the_pagan_origins_of_jesus_christ_and_christianity

What can be gained from this link below is just how brainwashed our human race has become along with much vital information for any mind wanting evidence which makes truth the truth, rather than a lying word.

https://vigilantcitizen.com/

Now when it comes right down to in-depth religious studies, there is no end to different views, lies, and just an outright war zone; and just this subject alone would require a million book library for its beginning. The fact is who or what can we really trust? Just for another example, read these 45 pages for yourself.

https://www.cs.umd.edu/~mvz/bible/bible-inconsistencies.pdf

How much thought have you ever given towards scriptures that seem to fit perfectly with signs of the times? Now, even with shaken faith, disappointment, hardship, and really no friends or direction–all my years of reading, writing, and websites have been based on the Bible with my circumstance in life for the evidence.

What is my circumstance spiritually speaking? Being not of this world with my mind set on things above, or our Creator. This writing explains what you just read in some ways.

https://wordpress.com/post/ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/5934

What I do see in The Word or Bible, are signs of the times as written. Signs of how knowledge has increased, deception, loveless hypocrites, division, rulers in high places, and knowing this earth, the human race, and all living creatures did not self-create; therefore I do have a faith that will never die.

David Icke also speaks through much evidence.

https://www.davidicke.com/

What about Aliens in Area 51 Nevada? Also evidence about the Moon, Saturn, and endless discussion?

http://proofofalien.com/10-evidences-prove-the-area-51-aliens-are-real/

Another vital, as out of this world read would be the seven parts of Who Lucifer Actually Is & Why They Are Here — just scroll down in this site and many reads including Lucifer will be found.

https://www.collective-evolution.com/author/richardenos/

My name is Jeff.  Let’s talk, discuss, provide what evidence we can, which can be near impossible for most on earth that cannot travel for the witness of written discoveries– but we can have open minds rather than controlled as this screen generation with obedience to whatever their cell phone, computer screen, or television along with video games or music psychologically direct.

HOW MUCH HAS HUMAN KNOWLEDGE INCREASED?

In our world this day, if only the one verse in Daniel 12:4 is believed–people would understand that all the knowledge (right or wrong) available via the Internet– being so massive that– how can an individual just gain a little understanding of its size? One way to answer this question is to consider the sum total of data held by all the big online storage and service companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook. Estimates are that the big four store at least 1,200 petabytes between them. That is 1.2 million terabytes (one terabyte is 1,000 gigabytes). And that figure excludes other big providers like Dropbox, Barracuda, and SugarSync, to say nothing of massive servers in industry and academia.  My whole point is this; if we are involved with the mega-giants such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and endless others, (even I use them only to post what few read) we have no privacy, and if we become involved as a social site for chat, (which I do not do) we are controlled—thus believe all that we choose to believe according to our own thought<-these mistakes I have made->or whatever big name successful speakers have to say. BUT NO MORE WHILE SEEKING EVIDENCE FOR ALL THINGS AT HAND

Jason A can be loved for his seemingly great knowledge—just as countless others worldwide. But what are they missing or not discussing? All manmade and controlled religions are no different than all controlled governments, media, music, television, cartoons, education, food industry, and big pharma which kills through bad medication or the banking business which has always taken people’s money based on their fiat money accompanied with all ways of human life in our crumbling world civilization. Fiat money refers to any currency lacking intrinsic value that is declared legal tender by a government.

Even though I have been reading and studying the Bible alone for 30 years—and never been a church member. All that I can find is biblical error upon error upon error while just having no trust in our human rule or even myself when it comes right down to absolute truth on what exactly lies ahead for our entire human race—other than knowing it will become the worst world chaos ever before on this globe. So what is a man of 63 years to do? Where is real truth? In churches that charge tithes for lies? In governments with more lies? I do believe Daniel 12 speaking of the worst timesoftrouble en route. Matthew 24 also lines up well as signs of the times just as the instruction in Revelation 18:4 to come out of her my people– which mean to be no longer under control of the matrix with meaning based on the 1999 film– which has all people in their unseen unknown prison of life on death row. But even with great faith, living a decade as a have-not, enduring my wife’s many physical hardships- and experiencing this world of today’s Christianity as the most uncaring people being not doers of the words they claim to believe– even though our Master Creator knows all things with nothing ever hid.

If I had the trillion+ worth of the Vatican and other major sources—my only purpose would be toward bringing this world together as one through genuine love, care, compassion, and most important empathy; and that is because even though living a life of no worth—I feel very fortunate not to be a working slave in China or many locations worldwide—nor a victim of human trafficking, thus used as a lucrative sex toy. If I were in the shoes on the millions of abused children worldwide with an example of their suffering in this site http://dreamcatchersforabusedchildren.com/ – my heart would cry along with their tears of sadness. When I think of all the women being beaten and raped—my heart cries on. The refugees, those starving, those homeless, those being tortured, those killed by government genocide, ISIS, and on and on and on as atrocities upon innocent humans which = never-ending heartbreak while feeling so unable to help any.

Welcome to human rule.

Again, if I had the power and wealth of world controllers, (Ephesians 6:12) they would be the first on my hit list followed by all government and religious trash on this planet with Killary Clinton and Obama as perfect examples–unless you like heartless liars along with pedophile politicians and preachers, adulteress politicians and preachers, greedy politicians and preachers, prideful politicians and preachers). In addition, all guilty of any major crimes will also become exterminated. No more prisons. Truth is a truth, and the truth is this; without loving others as we love ourselves—(being the golden rule Christianity and all beliefs ignore) —our human race will never be right—Period!

Where is there but one like-minded person on this earth for friendship and perhaps even a little help?

Of my 16 free websites, this one can lead to them all.  https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/effort-for-spiritual-knowledge/

WHAT IS YOUR PLACE IN LIFE?

Please read and share what concerns our entire human race. . .

As the world population timeclock http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ clicks each moment, more and more are brought into this world which at this writing is nearing 7.650 billion people. So I ask you this, where is the good, positive, and correct way for all human life to be found? Certainly not in the lying media. Never in lying governments, and never in any lying religions or beliefs worldwide. So where is a full truth regarding the current and future status of civilization to be found? All people can have their own opinion which brings nothing but pure division, and that is because…

“Welcome to this human race ruled by men and women who are totally pathetic and completely incapable of any proper rulership with proof in all directions ever since the beginning of humanity on this planet . . . Or is mega taxation good? war good? genocide good? murder good? Is torture good? rape good? countless diseases good? brutal crimes good? What about corrupt world governments? are they all good for leaders with power? Is human trafficking good, child abuse good, women being beaten good, overcrowded prisons good, massive world pollution good, false incomplete education good? What about the billions lured into false misleading religions? Is this world headed for its own destruction from being built on the lies of man because our Creator is not known in spirit or truth? or did these images with intricate detail, just as our human bodies, create themselves?

There is really no end to the factual truth regarding our endless universe, stars, planets, humans, and other forms of life known by few as reptilians.

Of the over 7.6 billion on this earth, over half use the Internet. There are 1,630,322,579 websites in the World as of June 2018.

However, it should also be noted that roughly more than 85% of all websites today are not active. Instead, most of them are parked domains or have a similar function.

This means that only between 10-15% of all the websites in the World are active and being used in some fashion.

Also, consider that a big portion of the websites is not updated in a timely manner. This means that the actual number of active, working sites may be a much smaller fraction.

It is estimated that by 2019, given the current rate of growth, the global traffic on the internet will reach 2 zettabytes or 2 billion-billion bytes for the year.

To put in layman’s terms, a single zettabyte can hold 36,000 hours of HD video.

There is little doubt that the internet will continue to grow in terms of its size, scope, and information. This is thanks to the world’s growing dependence on the web for communication, business, and entertainment. https://www.millforbusiness.com/how-many-websites-are-there/

So my main question is this— Who should we believe? Who is right and who is wrong when even most all, even with good intent are nothing but a mixture of truth and error? Now those speaking based on facts which they have been accumulating for decades through fully dedicated research is the least believed, such as https://www.davidicke.com/. Another excellent source of proven information on happenings in our world past and present can be found here- https://www.naturalnews.com/.

Others like https://www.collective-evolution.com/category/alternative-news/exopolitics/ – and https://www.collective-evolution.com/author/richardenos/that also share much valuable information on the world events which include pedophilia in high places of government– and even a seven-part series on who Lucifer truly is, and why he is on this earth. Here is another man with in-depth studies, and this was just released on September 8th, 2018 – https://divinecosmos.com/davids-blog/22005-stunning-new-briefings-spy-satellites-down-deep-state-arrests-finally-imminent?utm_source=ONTRAPORT-email-broadcast&utm_medium=ONTRAPORT-email-broadcast&utm_term=&utm_content=Stunning+New+Briefings%3A+Spy+Satellites+Down%2C+Deep+State+Arrests+Finally+Imminent%3F&utm_campaign=09082018

Now, this link is even more important because it reveals how so many have been and are under full mind control- how symbols rule this world, and very many subjects which reveal what has been happening on this globe- https://vigilantcitizen.com

Want solid information on a regular basis of what is and has been happening in the United States? This first details how the media and U.S. government are nothing but liars backed with fact. http://www.newworldordernews.com/

 

Now when it comes right down to all religions, all governments, and all personal beliefs- I have reached a point through this past decade where all my real trust aims toward our unseen, unknown Creator while waiting for an answer with an instruction that never seems to come. Why is that?

This link https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/PLg84J/the_pagan_origins_of_jesus_christ_and_christianity reveals a truth this world of Christianity is not taught or does not believe. In addition as extremely important, is this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5RfScpEcZ8&t=216s which reveals more truth never taught in Christianity or other religions, and it is only one study out of the uncountable for any with serious minds.

Because humans have always been full of truth and errors– and because of all versions of the Bible having many flaws and contradictions through mistranslation, adding, taking away and changing; only given spiritual discernment can identify what is the truth according to the signs of the time we are all living in.

The Bible also has a mixture truth, lies, and error– so what are a few signs of the times as written we all live in?

For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them. (Ecclesiastes 9:12)

Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away. (Hosea 4:3)

First, open your mind on what water pollution consist of while knowing that it is a worldwide major problem. https://www.nrdc.org/stories/water-pollution-everything-you-need-know

Through this past decade, my basic life has been nothing but time, research best as possible, and very limited resources; however creating over 16 free websites and about a thousand writings which cover many subjects regarding this planet, our entire civilization, and even the universe; therefore what follows is but only one major example of what has become the cause on why the fishes will be taken away.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/28-signs-that-the-west-coast-is-being-absolutely-fried-with-nuclear-radiation-from-fukushima/5355280

All that I really want to do is stay busy, learn, and inform others worldwide on a regular basis of what is actually happening. But with little income, no printer, problem laptop, weak costly wireless, and free sites loaded with who knows what kind of advertisements- I cannot even properly write or distribute information via kindle, ebook, PDF, Powerpoint or any of whatever ways there may be for sharing learned truth.

We all must make our own decesions without argument: therefore only the higher powers of the eternal universe can direct our path.

PEOPLE NEVER CHANGE or Do They?

One old saying is that people never change. But is not those words only hearsay rather than evidence showing the truth? Fact is this; some always remain the same with hard heads because they are never wrong- whereas others never stop learning/changing because all that they can really see is their own lifetime of mistakes through trust in their own mind which has put trust in humanities religions, education, and governments. So what have I learned backed with proof, evidence, and more through this past 11+ years?

Let’s start with religion because it is a major issue worldwide, thus my question is how can the endless-unlimited beliefs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_religions_and_spiritual_traditions) all be the only correct direction (individual beliefs) when our entire planet earth has become more unstable than water? Here is but only one example of what our human rule has done. As of about 20 years ago, in just the last century, there have been at least 170,000,000 deaths of the innocent (https://hawaii.edu/powerkills/POWER.ART.HTM) through corrupt government on this planet. So how many more that were never discovered mass murders through past centuries with all the additional since 1997? Does not this subject alone show just how upstanding, righteous, and orderly human governments and religions really are? as in pathetic? Were you aware that archeologists have never unearthed proof of Abraham, Moses, or the kingdom of David? Biblical flaws are too many for listing. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5RfScpEcZ8)  Another factual writing of great interest is this… (https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/PLg84J/the_pagan_origins_of_jesus_christ_and_christianity)  What about the book of Enoch that was removed from the Bible? or not removed from translations in Ethiopia? Have you ever wanted the truth on the purpose of who and why Lucifer is on this planet earth? Would some fact never taught in religion or education interest you? https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/knJel8/who-lucifer-actually-is-and-why-they-are-here-part-1-through-7)

What about America’s 100+ secret wars? https://www.truthdig.com/articles/rise-americas-secret-wars/

Many years of research on valuable information. https://www.naturalnews.com/

Daily reads on just how horrible the media and the United States government truly is. https://www.newworldordernews.com/

Most sadly are the facts regarding our entire human race which include our past, present, and what lies ahead for us all through total world control. In this link, I have placed about 300 separate reads on different subjects, and in truth could easily add another 3000 for any open mind being like a sponge that always wants more untaught truth through human religion and education. https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble

This link also brings some great understanding of world reality in many ways. https://vigilantcitizen.com

My own start of reading the Bible began about 30 years with never becoming a member of any church or religiou$ organization that I was not in full agreement with; therefore my life became one of putting trust in only our creator, always praying, fasting, and just enduring this past decade of hardship with never any help from this world of Christianity. Therefore I came to the point where if I could not make it on my own, life held no hope. Then just over one year ago my Social Security begins, (which will only last until the fall of America) and since that time, at less than $1000 per month, life for my wife and I here in the Philippines has been the best it has ever been since we met in March of 2007.

This link https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/effort-for-spiritual-knowledge/ gives some insight on just what I have been doing through these past 11 years, and now that I have totally changed through putting trust, hope, and need into like-minded people willing to help others- rather than living on (what seems as unanswered faith).

This is our newly built rented home, for less than $100 per month, that we want to buy for only about $25,000; and without doubt, it has come as a miracle from a good-hearted man when compared to our past way of living ever since we met over 11 years ago. The reason my wife always wears a scarf or hat is that at 45, she is losing all her hair. Then added is her weak heart, and just too many not right health issues to list, plus my own many difficulties at 63.

We do need some help, and if possible I will work as a welder, mechanic, or whatever.

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?

Have friends that listen rather than hear only? Is the best friend in life your spouse? Have an unfulfilled dream? How about memories since childhood that you wish would just go away? Made any bad decisions? Have regrets on your path in this life? What is your personal view on world events past and present? Ever give a thought on this world of bad and sad news rather than anything good, true and positive concerning our human race?

On life story, if you tell me yours, I will listen with interest, then we can somewhat understand each other to build a friendship.

What is the purpose of war?

https://akamat.wordpress.com/2007/07/31/the-purpose-of-war-according-to-george-orwell-1984/

(Quote) War creates jobs which creates wealth for those in the business of making products for war. The true beneficiaries of war are those who create wars for political and economic gain.

When all that any individual can really see is all the pain, suffering, and the many difficulties upon billions; all they really want most out of their own life is the way to help all on this earth by taking control from all the leaders in religion, politics, and education along with all positions of power that mislead our entire human race.

Most all people are good which make all cultures good; therefore regardless of skin color, language and location— if there was never any wrong guidance from birth, all people everywhere would get alone perfectly with others through having what we all need but lack. In other words, if all humans loved others as themselves, our entire civilization would live in perfect harmony.

When we condemn others, judge others, and hate others, why is that? The answer is because of all on this planet walking the road they were brought up on or taught through their existence. One perfect example can be seen in this link which reveals just how many different beliefs there truly is.

https://ttimesofttrouble.webs.com/uncountablereligions.htm

Because today’s Christianity is part of the long list, this link below reveals just how misled their belief is also.

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/XJMg62/the-pagan-origins-of-jesus-christ-and-christianity

In addition, when any read in the 10 commandments “Thou shalt not kill”, why is Saul commanded to kill men, woman, and children in 1 Samuel 15:3?

“Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.

Any seeking truth not taught in human education or any religion/beliefs worldwide can gain much through their own search with this link below being but one of the uncountable examples.

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bible+unearthed

Last but not least is what all should not only firstly believe but understand; therefore is the least belief of truth on this planet earth. Again, all I will share is but two of the uncountable examples of solid evidence through highly knowledgeable and respected individuals, thus leaving the rest to each their own direction.

The second one is this. . .

https://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/08/13/stanfords-most-successful-remote-viewer-reveals-location-of-4-alien-bases-on-earth/

Now that we have reached this point, I will share a little about myself and what brought me into having a more open mind. In the middle 1990’s I was worth half a million, but trusting man, religion, and giving much took it all away rapidly. Then added was a 30 years marriage lacking friendship which took all that I had left. In December of 2006, I left America with just over one thousand dollars to never return through learning to put no full trust in world leaders, religion, or education. At this point, I have near 30 years of private Bible studies and reading while never in my life being a church member or a part of any religiou$ organization. What these past 11 years have done is taught me how to live on almost nothing without all the comforts that I once had. Therefore seeing just how much civilization all around this world has been suffering so badly in many different ways through pollution, genocide, violence, GMO, pharmaceuticals, human trafficking, slavery, torture, and many worldwide disasters often caused by high powers as part of the plan for reducing this world population to begin the new world order.

My wife and I need some help with the reason that she can no longer work because of health, and for a man of age, there is no work here in the Philippines. I am willing to do just about anything such as online surveys or even seeking help through go fund me; however, because I have no bank card or the kind of account to acquire PayPal, it leaves me little hope other than knowing there are good people all over this world that will help others in need. Need a specialty tig welder or just a good tradesman?

For a decade our daily life was a struggle, and then one year ago in August 2017 my social security began paying me less than one thousand per month, yet seemed as riches when compared to the little we had been living on.

At this time we are living in what has become our dream come true. Rent is less than $100 per month, and this home can be bought for about $25000. To live in peace and quiet is nice. To be high up for much wind each afternoon is comforting in the hot weather. To overlook an ocean bay, the mountains on the other side, and the mountainous area all around is also very relaxing. This home is brand new and still being completed. The construction is all hollow block, rebar, concrete, tile, ceiling panels, window guards, and little else. For just as any person with a simple dream, ours is to buy this home. We have never had a stove with oven. Never a hot water heater. Never a kitchen cabinet and probably never will because they are not important needs. Also never a good dependable vehicle, and that, such as an old Jeep we do need because riding on our motorbike causes my wife to much pain. For me, it has been over 11 years since I had a good full sit down meal of my own choice, steaks on the grill, or some hot Texas chili.  I have yet to find good beef along with so many other kinds of food that I miss, but that is no problem or complaint when viewing or reading what has been happening so many decades to people in Africa and other nations worldwide.

Soon as at the end of this week our home will be completed with a guest room, thus any family or others wanting good friendship and serious conversation about what has been happening on this planet for so many decades, a game of Chess, music, beer and normal conversation can visit my wife and me, and we live not far from the airport in Gensan, Philippines. Because there are many worldwide that would like a short getaway vacation in simple ways, please share this writing.

As human beings in a messed up world, all that we can do is live day by day with hope for better tomorrows through the good in others.

Why Is Syria Hell on Earth? Here’s the Ugly but True Answer…

The whole truth with nothing but truth is fact being that humans have never been able to properly rule humans; therefore our bitter end lies ahead in ways none on this earth living in spiritual darkness are prepared for; especially all of today’s Christianity that listen, trust, and even pay all their blinded pastors, ministers, prophets, evangelists tithes for the lies of twisted scripture as in the doctrines and traditions of man being totally false in all churches and religions worldwide having congregations as the foolish virgins lacking their oil for wisdom. Matthew 25:1-13

TheWayPrepared.com is for the few seeking truth never taught in the religions of man anywhere on this planet.

Hafez al-Assad

The son of the president was driving way too fast through the early morning fog. He was rushing to the airport to catch a flight to Germany. He missed the exit to the airport. Lost control of his sports car. Smashed it into a barrier. The car flipped numerous times. When it came to a stop, the son of the president was dead. He was 33. His name was Basil al-Assad.

The first son was so beloved by his father that the president was fond of being called Abu Basil, which translates as “Father of Basil.” As heir apparent to his father, Basil’s sudden violent death was a shock to the family, and a stunning blow to the future of the nation and its people. The second son was never intended to be a leader. He was off in London, training to be an eye doctor. But following the death of Abu Basil’s first son, Fate left the younger brother as de facto next-in-line to become president of Syria. You know this man’s name: Bashar al-Assad.

Bashar, who the New York Times called a “shy young doctor” when he took over as president of Syria in July of 2000, quickly transformed from mild-mannered London-based ophthalmologist into the man you know as the genocidal monster of Damascus. A man far more cruel and ghoulish than his father. Bashar’s murderous reign raises a peculiar question: How many hundreds of thousands of Syrian people died because of that one car accident?

If you catch news of the Syrian conflict, it seems like a narrative that’s knotted and frayed, impossible to untangle. However, it’s not, if you pull on the right thread.

When the world learned that the Syrian government––under orders from President Bashar al-Assad––had (allegedly) dropped bombs of sarin gas on its own people, the news reports defied easy understanding. How could any leader do that to his own people? But if you know the story of Syria, this atrocity is sadly quite predictable. It follows a historic pattern.

To understand why Bashar al-Assad exterminates his own people, you must understand how Bashar values the people of Syria. His people. But before they were his people, they belonged to someone else. To understand the son, one must know the father. The story of the Syrian conflict — a tale of staggering losses of human life, death on a scale that avoids comprehension— is a war story that’s not easy to tell. There are the factions. The history. The layers of conflict. But, if you wish to answer the question: Why is Syria Hell on Earth––why have 320,000 innocent human beings been murdered––to answer why such atrocities occur despite history’s warnings, to get at this story properly, one must start with the father of Basil, and Bashar, and the republic of Syria.

His name is: Hafez al-Assad.


Syria is a nation born from an act of European betrayal. It was part of a great betrayal of Arabs by the British and French that traces back to one man, T.E. Lawrence. You may know him from his movie biopic, Lawrence of Arabia.

In the film, Peter O’Toole beautifully pines as he gazes out at those bleak desert landscapes, framed by the genius of David Lean. As the audience, we see how Lawrence, an eccentric Englishman, is sent to an undesirable outpost to aid the Arabs in their fight against the Turks. They’re hopelessly outmatched. But Lawrence inspires them with the promise of freedom in victory. He even fights side-by-side with the Arab rebels he commands in battle. Together, they achieve stunning victories against the Turks. But then, once the Turks are beaten, Lawrence learns that the British government, along with the French, intends to go back on its promise to the Arabs. The land they fought, bled, and died for, will not be theirs; instead, the European powers declared themselves the new imperial overlords of the Middle East. That’s a world class betrayal.

After the smoke cleared, the dust settled, and the blood dried in the killing fields of World War I, there sat the ruins of the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish empire was vast. In order to divide up their prize of the newly-liberated Middle Eastern kingdoms, the British and the French designated two mapmakers––men whose names are written in the history books as cartographers but were essentially imperial bureaucrats––and tasked them with the opportunity to draw new borders across lands and peoples they did not understand. It was called the Sykes-Picot Agreement. A lattice of borders was laid over the Middle East with all the care of a blind tailor. When they were done, the former Turkish-controlled lands of the Ottoman Empire were renamed as new nations. You know them as: Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, and Syria. (Armenia, was also freed from Turkish domination, but was given to the Russians.)

The new nations were never intended to be independent. They were intended to be colonies for the European powers. Of course the Arab natives of the region weren’t super eager to trade their old Ottoman overlords for new French ones. The people rightfully wanted nations of their own, not puppet governments, ones loyal to a foreign power. They’d fought and died to establish Arab republics. Which is why, in 1925, before the newly-minted State of Syria could celebrate its first birthday, rebel factions began a civil war against the French-mandated Syrian government. The rebellion was led by a man named Sultan Pasha al-Atrash.

Sultan Pasha al-Atrash

The rebel leader Sultan al-Atrash and his followers were from a minority ethnic group in Syria, the Arab Druze people. They lived mostly by the southern border with Palestine. As tribal leaders, al-Atrash’s family had ruled this section of land since the 1870s. When the French replaced the Turks as the foreign power, the Druze refused to accept the new French Mandate. They made war against this so-called State of Syria. They’d just fought the Turks to be free. Why not the French? Plus, the Druze had largely been left out of the new power-sharing agreement between the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus. The revolution led by al-Atrash was immediately popular with other tribes in Syria, it spread like a wildfire of insurrection, lasting for two years. It burned across the countryside. But the Arab rebellion overlooked the obvious fact the French military had a brutal technological advantage. Remember, this is just after World War I.

So, what do you think the French military used to put down the revolts?

Imagine bi-planes flying over population centers packed with Arabs. It was an indiscriminate campaign of death from above. During one campaign the French air force bombed the civilians of Damascus, for 48 straight hours, murdering rebels and civilians alike. Indiscriminately. Which is how, inevitably, al-Atrash’s popular revolt was quashed. All Syrians were punished, guilty and innocent.

But the French took seriously the message of Arab discontent. They promised the Syrian people change. Real Arab leadership. A Syria for Syrians. Oui, Oui!

Their plan was doomed by another tribal oversight. The French largely ignored the third major ethnic group in the Syria, the Alawites, a Shiite Muslim tribal group native to the northern coast, up by the border with Turkey. The tribe had strongly objected to the French Mandate and never officially joined the State of Syria. As a minority ethnic population, just like Sultan al-Atrash and the southern Druze tribe, the Alawites had been left out of the French plans for a power-sharing agreement that saw the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus as the seats of Syrian power.

Quick note, this will pop back up later in our story: the al-Assad family are Alawites. If you’re keeping score, the Alawites are a Shiite ethnic group, or tribe, in a predominantly Sunni Muslim nation. This fun fact from the nation’s founding will forever affect the story of Syria. You may also notice another pattern and theme begin to shape Syrian history. Can you guess what it is?

Here, I’ll give you a hint: bombing civilians.

Fast-forward five years. It’s 1930. For reasons wholly political, a new new nation of Syria is declared. It’s called the Syrian Republic. At this point, Syria is becoming born-again faster than a Mississippi divorcee. And again, the people’s dream of a truly independent Arab-ruled Syria is rejected. Instead, the nation is given a new set of window dressings, put up by the latest version of a puppet French government. (The French are nothing if not stubborn.)

In 1936, there are new talks for a treaty of independence from France. The Syrian Republic––and all its various peoples––will finally be free to found a sovereign Arab nation. Free to set their own course. Free from the domination of foreign rulers. And one year later, in 1937, a free and independent Syria is established. But it’s never fully legalized. The French legislature decides not to ratify the treaty. Which leaves the young nation in limbo. It’s left as an unrecognized nation, about as legit on the world stage as a Disney family fun island.

*record scratch*

By the way, notice something important about the years we’re talking about? There’s an external tension galloping along with Syria’s internal tensions. Remember what else was going on in the world in the late 1930s? If so, you may guess what happens next. That’s right….Boom!

World War II.


When the Nazis march on Paris and take over France in 1940, the occupied government of Vichy France is left in charge of the colonial French-mandated puppet government of Syria. Which means, for a short while, the Syrian Republic is governed by Nazi-occupied France. Essentially, the Nazis. Yet another new foreign power in charge of Syria. But then, the war in the European theater ends in the summer of ‘45, and the restored French government promises to pull out of Syria. The newly-liberated French claim they will finally allow the Arab nation to become a truly free and independent nation, no longer under rule by a foreign power. And, one year later, when the French still haven’t left Syria, new popular uprisings and protests break out.

In May of 1945, the Prime Minister of the Syrian Republic, Faris al-Khoury travels to San Francisco to attend the founding conference for the United Nations. He presents a proposal that outlines why Syria should be granted its freedom from the old League of Nations-approved French Mandate of Syria. Meanwhile, back in Syria, the French Air Force is bombing the country, to convince them to accept restored French rule. On October 24, 1945 the United Nations is born with the ratification of the UN Charter. Syria was a founding member state of the UN. With the establishment of the UN, its predecessor the League of Nations and its agreements such as the French Mandate of Syria are no longer legally binding. Which Syria declares is the perfect opportunity for their independence from their French overlords.

Based on what we know of the story of Syria, so far, how do you think the French responded to the Prime Minister al-Khoury’s pleas to the UN to recognize Syria as a free and independent Arab nation?

You know the answer: violence against innocent Syrians. The French fired artillery into the crowds of protesters. They shut off the electricity in Damascus. Their warplanes continued to indiscriminately bomb civilians.

But after they put down the latest rebellion, the French had a change of mind. Busy rebuilding France after the devastations of World War II, the French had their own headaches and hassles to deal with back home. Constantly putting down insurrections in a colony was becoming too expensive and unpopular. In 1946, the French decide to cut Syria loose. And on April 17, 1946 the last French troops leave Syria. The nation will, finally, be free and independent.

However, yet again, external politics intervene. In 1948, a new nation is born on Syria’s southern border. Its birth will reshape the entire Middle East region. And it spells immediate trouble for Syria. You know that new nation as….Israel.

To the south and west of Damascus is an area called the Golan Heights. It’s down there in the lower left corner of Syria. It was part of the old border with Syria’s southern neighbor Palestine. But when the Arab nation of Palestine was annexed and designated by the United Nations as a Jewish homeland, Syria is drawn into a fresh conflict with its new neighbor, Israel.

In 1948, Syria joined with other Arab nations, who’d vowed to crush Israel. Together they waged all-out war. And together, they lost. Spectacularly. One year after the beginning of the war, in July of 1949, Syria quit fighting their new neighbor. They were the last ones to put down their arms. Their loss against Israel was a crushing humiliation. In fact, it’s such a colossal embarrassment it leads to a coup. The first of many coups, new constitutions, and reformed cabinets. This settles into a pattern––for a decade and a half, Syria is a roiling cauldron of governmental upheaval.

At one point, in 1958, Syria attempts to join with Egypt to create a super-nation, the United Arab Republic. They dream of one giant Arab nation spreading across the Middle East, like a Muslim superpower, a union of federated republics. But, like all dreams, it’s short-lived. In less than three years the United Arab Republic crashes hard on the rocks of reality. In 1961, Syria attempts to become, once again, a newly free and independent nation. They call their new nation the Arab Republic of Syria. Which leads to a new governmental instability. In March of 1963, the Arab Socialist Ba-ath Party takes over Syria in a coup d’état.

Eventually, we arrive at an end to all this tumultuous chaos. Finally, strong Arab leadership comes to Syria. So strong that it ends the cycles of inner turmoil and constant domination by outside nations. Finally, Syria overcomes the push and pull of world events. Out of chaos comes the birth of a new and lasting order. It’s the last and most important coup.

So, who do you think led that coup?

Ten points if you said: Hafez al-Assad. AKA Abu Basil, father of Basil, Bashar, and Syria.

Hafez al-Assad

Hafez al-Assad made his first power moves after Syria lost to Israel in a yet another failed war. The year was 1967. Hafez al-Assad was the Minister of Defense for Syria during the Six Days War. As Col. Hafez al-Assad he mostly stayed out of the struggles for power that resulted from the loss to Israel. Of course, Hafez had opinions, but he saw himself as a military man. The sort who takes orders. As the Minister of Defense, there were many in the military who respected him. As did many politicians. His opinions shaped Syrian policy. Which meant, he also had political rivals. His key rival was the Salah Jadid, the President of Syria. After al-Assad discovered an assassination plot against him masterminded by the sitting president, he decided it was time for him to go full gangster, and just take over the whole operation.

In November of 1970, the government under President Jadid convened an Emergency National Congress. It was called to settle down the growing crisis of confidence in his leadership. Feeling threatened by his popular Minister of Defense, President Jadid was eager to sideline Hafez al-Assad. His plan was to use the Emergency National Congress to very publicly remove al-Assad from any and all official government posts he holds. It’s a common move when one fears a coup from the military. All the top leadership of Syria attended the Emergency National Congress. But Hafez al-Assad rolled up like a gangster. One who had his own army. When he arrived at the Emergency National Congress, he ordered his most loyal troops to surround the building.

Inside, the meeting goes down as planned. President Jadid stripped al-Assad of all his official government positions. Thoroughly shamed, the president and his allies feel convinced this public embarrassment will effectively sideline the former Minister of Defense. And if they’re lucky, it might salt the earth for any future political ambitions. How wrong were they? They totally failed to realize who they were dealing with. Hafez motherfucking al-Assad.

Once the Emergency National Congress was concluded, al-Assad declares himself in-charge of Syria, and confidently orders his troops to arrest President Jadid and his key supporters, and anyone who opposes his new leadership. In a very un-democratic move, al-Assad seized control of the whole damn country. His loyal soldiers didn’t even have to fire a single shot.

After Hafez al-Assad’s bloodless coup was a total success. Everyone in Syria gets the message. And they get in line. Finally, there’s some order and stability. It comes in the form of an authoritarian leader. But there is no doubt Hafez al-Assad is the undisputed leader of Syria, a stabilizing force, and would remain so for the next thirty years.

Now, to make things a little more interesting, keep in mind, the al-Assad family are Alawites. Remember they’re the same tribal group that wouldn’t originally partner with the city-states of Aleppo and Damascus way back when the newly-formed French-mandated nation of Syria was first negotiating its various independence deals with France after the end of World War I. That’s how far back these tensions go. Unresolved tensions from World War I. And the religious tension are far older than that. Since al-Assad is a member of the Shia minority group of Alawites, to maintain his tight grip on leadership, as the supreme leader of Syria, he often acted with crushing violence to suppress any uprisings in the Sunni-predominant urban centers, such as Damascus and Aleppo.

When you hear about people living in a Syrian city such as Damascus, Aleppo, or Homs, you might think they’re all the same. They’re all Syrians. You have to keep in mind these are groups of people from different historic ethnic groups. Aleppo and Damascus aren’t just cities in Syria. They were ancient, independent city-states. As Americans, we might think of them as two neighboring cities like Cleveland and Cincinnati. But it’s more like if Cleveland and Cincinnati were once fierce rivals, and then one day, some foreigners with guns and bombs came along, drew a line around them all, called it a border, and said they now live in Ohio. This is important but often overlooked aspect of life in Syrian cities. The cities are ancient rivals.

Right about now you may be wondering, “But wait, where is America in this story? When does the U.S. show up in this tale?”


Hafez al-Assad and President Jimmy Carter

At the end of World War II––much like at the end of World War I––there were two new superpowers, only this time it was America and the Soviet Union. The world entered its post-colonial period. All around the globe, new nations popped into existence. Either through war and revolution, through mandate, or sometimes through royal decree. But for three decades, nations constantly stepped free of the grip of their former colonial rulers. As the countries emerged from European rule, the new nations often had to pick, either, the U.S. or the Soviet Union as their strategic ally. In return, the two competing superpowers used the new nations as sites for their proxy wars. This is how the Middle East became a patchwork of Soviet and U.S.-alliances.

Never one to miss a trick, Hafez al-Assad exploited regional politics and Cold War politics to his benefit. With Soviet weapons, al-Assad turned Syria into a feared and respected Arab republic. One that was a worthy military rival to its southern neighbor, Israel. But that fight would have to wait, because there was a new threat spreading in the Middle East, one that pitted Muslim against Muslim. The militarized political arrangements of the Seventies –– and the hopes for peace in the Middle East, that seemed so near at hand after President Carter, Menachem Begin, and Anwar Sadat struck a peace accord between Egypt and Israel –– drew to a sudden and surprising close at the end of the decade. It was like someone had turned on all the lights in the disco. The culprit was Iran. Iran turned on the lights in the disco. But that’s what you do when your thing is Islamic fundamentalism.

The year was 1978, when a theocratic movement of students and religious clerics united to overthrow the American-backed Shah of Iran, every leader in the Middle East turned their head to watch, wondering if they could be next, as the Ayatollah urged all Muslims to reject Western powers and embrace Islamic fundamentalism, to adopt religious values as the guiding voice for politics in the region. That was a direct challenge to Hafez al-Assad, who was the secular socialist president partnered with the atheist Soviet Union, who was actively at war against Muslims in Afghanistan. Not a good look for an Arab leader when everyone’s talking theocracy. And you know al-Assad will suppress the first signs of rebellion or revolt; if he detected the faintest whiff of protest it would be met with state violence. Because, never forget, al-Assad is an Alawite, which means he is a Shia Muslim who’s the leader of a majority Sunni nation. This is what anyone would call a crisis of leadership. But Hafez al-Assad had seen it coming. Since 1976, he’d been putting down his own Islamist uprising in Syria.

After four years of him waging sectarian violence against the Syrian Sunni fundamentalists, backed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the revolts against al-Assad metastasized into full-on assassination attempts. In 1980, there was a nearly successful attempt on al-Assad’s life that did succeed in scaring him into responding with increasingly horrific violence. The embattled president put his brother in charge of a counterinsurgency with one goal: crush the Sunni Islamist revolt.

In 1982, al-Assad ordered the siege of the city of Hama. For 27 days, the Syrian government pummeled the civilians of the city with artillery attacks and waves of aerial bombings. When they finally stopped, the Syrian government had killed 20,000–40,000 thousand of its own citizens. (The number of fatalities depends on whose count you use.) Around the world, the Hama Massacre was widely-criticized, it was a shocking atrocity. But the revolt was put down. The Hama Massacre was one of the most heinous actsan Arab government ever committed against its own people. Does it sound kinda familiar though?

Now, let’s jump forward ten years.

It’s 1991. There’s a war brewing in the Persian Gulf. America led by George Bush the Elder is about to take on Iraq in the First Gulf War.

Can you guess who secular, socialist, Soviet Union-backed, President al-Assad and his Syrian government chose as their ally in the Gulf War?

Just like he did in the Iran-Iraq War in 1980, Hafez al-Assad, leader of the socialist Ba’ath party of Syria, decides to help a foreign power fight and defeat the Ba’ath party of Iraq. He stuns the world and sides with a western power, America, and aids its attacks on a majority Muslim nation.

Hafez al-Assad and Saddam Hussein in happier days

After the First Gulf War ends, al-Assad is still in power, and now he’s a little less worried about a fundamental Muslim revolution deposing him. The Americans are now the ones to attract their fundamentalists’ anger and incur their violence. But he’s also still feeling a bit unprotected. He was about to lose his biggest ally. That same year, in December of 1991, al-Assad and the rest of the world watched as the Soviet Union dissolved like a sugar cube in the rain.

How could al-Assad negotiate the new political reality and retain power in Syria? His options were limited. He could become an unofficial American ally, like Egypt had done. But the risk there was that it might turn him into a puppet in the eyes of his people, and spell doom for his leadership like it did for the Shah of Iran. What about the Muslim nation to his north, Turkey?

For many readers Turkey’s role in the Middle East may be something of a question mark. Like, what’s the deal with Turkey in the Middle East? Are they part of it, or not? Turkey exists at the physical divide between Europe and Asia. It’s a gateway nation, which makes it’s an impossible country to read. It’s a nation with two faces. It looks one way to Westerners. And quite different to Easterners, like Iran or Russia. And, Turkey looks quite different to the Arab world. The eyes of their culture see further back in history. To Arab eyes Turkey conjures up memories of centuries of domination by the Ottoman Empire that only ended thanks to the bloodshed of World War I. And now, a century later, memories of Turkish domination are not forgotten, or forgiven. To this day, no Arab nation wishes to see the return of a dominant Turkey. Which means, Syria, like all its other Arab neighbors, will always avoid partnering with Turkey.

So, who can a socialist, religiously moderate, secular nation like Syria partner with to help them remain a free and independent country? While also avoiding the ever-present threat of a hostile takeover by the fundamentalist Islamic wave that burns like coals all across the Middle East, always ready to flare up and start a new bonfire of resistance?

To buy himself time, all throughout the Nineties, al-Assad plays diplomacy games with the West. He makes overtures that much like Egypt did, Syria will make peace with Israel. He works high-level political calculus, and all the while al-Assad drags his feet through round after round of international negotiations and discussions about the planned peace deal and a new treaty with Israel. President Clinton and the West especially want al-Assad’s help and stamp of approval on an Israel-Palestine solution. America thinks there can one day be peace in the Middle East. This idea al-Assad dangles like bait before the West, but he never formally confirms anything. He plays the West.

Just as he has done for decades in his dealings with the West, al-Assad employs stalling tactics in his negotiations, and soon enough, he finds he has a new ally. One that’s perfectly suited to keep the West from strong-arming him, and protect him from losing power to the Islamist fundamentalist. His new ally was an old friend.

From the ashes of the Soviet Union, had emerged a new nation, one weaker than before, but bound together by a ruthless form of gangster-capitalism. They call the new nation the Russian Federation. Thanks to the fact they’re natural and historic allies, Syria partnered with the new Russia. This move kept regional powers like Iran in check. It also kept the regional powers like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, who are both majority Sunni populations, along with the gulf states of Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Dubai, from dominating the region with the backing of the Americans. And remember, the Americans are, for the most part, just an update on the former colonial powers, the British and the French. Which, like the Turks, no Arab nation wants as their foreign ruler. Plus, by partnering with Russia, it makes arch-rivals Israel, and Turkey, think twice about ever messing with Syria. On the geopolitical chessboard it’s a brilliant move to make. It’s exactly what you expect from a political gangster genius like Hafez al-Assad: wait for the world to change.


Over the last 100 years, since, roughly, 1920, Syria has partnered with the French, the Nazi-occupied French government, the British, the Americans, the Egyptians, the Iranians, the Soviets, and most recently, the Russians. For a hundred years, they’ve struggled to be a free and independent nation that sets its own destiny. To do that, they’ve had to play global politics. Which means they’ve played the dark and dirty games of the region, riding waves of violence as they ceaselessly ebbed and flowed, ever since the Ottoman Empire crumbled at the end of World War I.

As a nation, Syria began as two dominant city-states, Damascus and Aleppo, grouped together with a number of various ethnic tribes, most notably, the two tribal states, the Alawites in the north, and the Druze in the south, all forced together by foreign map-makers and their colonial bosses. The one man to hold power in Syria, supreme leader Hafez al-Assad, from the Alawite minority, is a strongman who always felt the only way for him to hold onto power in a majority-Sunni nation, with majority-Sunni nations for neighbors, was to periodically wage indescribable acts of violence against the citizens of his own nation. To defeat outsiders he chose to kill Syrians. At this point, you could cynically call it a family tradition.

To understand why, in 2017, President Bashar al-Assad gassed his own people, and has bombed the city of Aleppo into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you need look no further than his father. That’s his blueprint.

First, the people living in the city-state of Aleppo are not al-Assad’s people. Bashar may be the leader of Syria, but his people, his father’s people, are the Alawite tribe from the north. The people in Aleppo are Sunnis. To Bashar, he’s killing enemies, not his people. The Syrian revolution began in 2011. One of the first and largest anti-Assad protests was in the city of Hama. Bashar responded with tanks. By the time his men were done suppressing the protest, they’d killed two hundred civilians. It was called the Siege of Hama. Which mirrors his father’s Hama Massacre. This is just what the family does to hold power.

Secondly, President Bashar al-Assad is and will always be battling against the same fundamentalist Muslims his dad had to quash. In one form or another, they’re the same ones that have been trying to overthrow the Syrian government since the mid-Seventies. That’s commitment. The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies would still love to see a fundamentalist Sunni leadership in Syria. The Iran Revolutionary Guard would also love to see a fundamentalist Muslim leadership in Syria, only difference is they’d prefer it be led by Shia Muslims, not Sunnis like the Muslim Brotherhood. And, of course, there’s ISIS. Each fundamental Islamist group imagines it differently, but they share the same general goal: religious revolution. Bashar al-Assad firmly believes the only thing holding back these various flavors of Muslim fundamentalism is the constant reminder of the pain of death.

Thirdly: There’s Russia. Vladimir Putin enjoys fulfilling the role of the former Western colonial powers. For one, it’s lucrative for Russia to sell weapons and arms to Syria. The Syrian conflict also gives Russia a place to run military exercises. It’s a powerful means for Putin to project dominance on the world stage. And, most importantly, Syria is an arena for Russia to challenge the presumption that the old colonial powers––the British and the French, and the new ones, the Americans, who back the Saudi Arabians and the gulf states––are the real power in the region. Putin doesn’t agree with that assumption. The Syrian civil war is a monkey wrench the Russians can throw into Arab regional relations, and into world politics. Bashar al-Assad learned from his dad this global game-playing amongst the world powers is how one retains power in Syria. You leverage outsider power to control your own people.

Syria is not a free and independent nation. It has yet to achieve that goal. And the people pay for that failure. Millions of innocent people, unfortunate to have been born in Syria, must live in the murderous intersection of tribalism, religious and sectarian divides, proxy warfare by foreign powers, and wartime capitalism. Their lives are unfairly marred by the original sins of Turkish and subsequent European colonialism. Their supreme leader, President Bashar al-Assad, is just the latest symptom of a devastating disease. He’s playing a role not written for him, and thus he does the only thing he knows works: be as vicious and cunning as dear ol’ daddy, Hafez.

History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme. This may be why Syria remains a bloody cluster-fuck. There’s no end in sight because no one is working on the sources of the tensions. Instead, well-meaning outsiders are overwhelmed by the endless cycles of violence, even if they’re occasionally motivated into action by the pitiful looks on the faces of helpless children. The people doomed to live in Syria lack the ability to overcome all of these various forces working against them. Survival is their best hope. Hell, they just tried to wage a revolution for their freedom from tyranny. You see where that got them. The last 7 years have been the government’s answer. Plus, it’s not like America’s going to do any serious and committed nation-building guided by the tiny hands of Donald Trump and his under-staffed and under-funded State Department. And, the Russians? Well, we all know they aren’t known for spreading democracy. There is no peaceful escape for the people from the murderous reign of Bashar al-Assad.

The only person who’s successfully held power in Syria was a socialist gangster military mastermind from an ethnic minority. Who do you think the eye doctor son who accidentally became president after his older brother died in a car crash is going to emulate? The story of his father, Hafez, sheds light on an ugly truth: for the foreseeable future, with Russia’s backing, Bashar will guarantee that Syria remains bloody as a slaughterhouse killing floor.

How many hundreds of thousands of lives were lost because of that one car accident? Big brother Basil may not have been a better president, but it’s difficult to picture he would’ve been more monstrous than his little brother Bashar. But, who knows? Basil may have tried to surpass his father’s cruelty, and he may have exceeded Bashar’s civilian-killing ways. That’s not the best question to ask. The only good and important question to ask is:

What can possibly save the people of Syria from this endless cycle of violence that’s as predictable as the sweep of the arms of a murderous clock?

In other words, when will Syria finally be a free and independent nation? Right now, America and Russia continue to bomb hospitals in Syria, as they try to defeat ISIS. Meanwhile, the Russians aim to keep Bashar al-Assad in power, while the Americans give aid to the rebels looking to depose him, the same rebels that are aligned with the latest fundamentalist Sunni Islamists, ones you know best as…Al Qaeda. That’s right. In Syria, America is uneasy partners with Al Qaeda. That’s Syria.

And that’s been Syria for the last 100 years. That’s why refugees are desperate to leave, the same ones President Trump has banned from entering the U.S. The same refugees that drown in the Mediterranean, desperate to reach Europe. The West drew the imaginary lines in the sand that created Syria. That original betrayal of Arabs by the West is the reason why Syria became hell on Earth. It’s easy to ignore the truth of that statement if you blame Bashar and Hafez al-Assad for the bloodshed we see in the news.

But now you know…that’s not the real story.

The real story is far uglier.

MESSAGE FOR BELIEVERS WORLDWIDE

What is without doubt or question the most difficult part of walking as a true and genuine believer in the Father and Son, as in living not of this world?

Answer – It is becoming totally and completely disassociated with our entire worldly civilization living in their worldly ways via self-direction, (Colossians 3) and that is because regardless of a person’s title, beliefs, how many decades or even an entire lifetime of their own studies they may have, how wealthy they are, or even how great their philosophy and psychological knowledge may be — if they have not been called out of this world according to faith in scripture such as John 15:19, Matthew 13:11, and much more pertaining to firstfruits, all that they think, produce, act on, and believe comes from the natural mind through their created human spirit within. (1 Corinthians 2, Zechariah 12:1, Hosea 9:7, Micah 2:11, Ecclesiastes 3:21, 8:8, Proverbs 16:2, 17:27, 18:4, Job 32:8, etc.)

“But the natural, nonspiritual man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of YHVH, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him; and he is incapable of knowing them [of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them] because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated. (1 Corinthians 2:14)

Why did I write that first paragraph and share the verse you just read?

“Yehovah looks down from heaven on Adam’s descendants to see if there is anyone who acts wisely, if there is anyone who seeks help from Elohim. Everyone has turned away. Together they have become rotten to the core. No one, not even one person, does good things. Behold, [Elohim] puts no trust in His holy ones [the angels]; indeed, the heavens are not clean in His sight—How much less that which is abominable and corrupt, a man who drinks “iniquity” like water?  (Psalms 14:2-3, Job 15:15-16)

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear. But your “iniquities” have made a separation between you and your Elohim, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you, when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me; . . . though I call and cry for help, he shuts out my prayer; “You have wrapped yourself with anger and pursued us, killing without pity; you have wrapped yourself with a cloud so that no prayer can pass through. (Isaiah 59:1-2, Proverbs 1:26-28, Lamentations 3:8, 43-44)

When any individual becomes no longer of this world spiritually speaking, thus lives through ten years of endurance while most often lacking just basic needs including food, they have been learning to look only to our Father always for direction. Therefore can see what others worldwide cannot, and that is because. . .

“If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Every word we speak was taught to us by Elohim’s Spirit, not by human wisdom. And this same Spirit helps us teach spiritual things to spiritual people. (John 15:19, 1 Corinthians 2:13)

In today’s world of high technology, just the Internet alone, for any choosing different types of education has a multi-million book library at their fingertips which leaves only their genuine desire through much time and great effort in seeking what they really want; and the same holds true for any wanting spiritual knowledge supplied from not of this world.

Therefore, what all worldly people lack is the spiritual discernment which requires being led, instructed, and directed by Yehovah Elohim in the 3rd Heaven; and reason being that cyberspace now has approximately 300,000,000 million websites accompanied with a billion [give or take] bias views, opinions, ways, traditions, and beliefs – thus, how can it be possible to ever really know what is right and what is wrong concerning every word read from the uncountable writers?

The bottom line is this: there is no full truth to be found anywhere on this earth, so speaks the Bible through scripture none believe, but rather what can sound so good and be so very pleasing to hear that it can only be true – especially when billions of others feel the same way!! However, if just the Christian Israelites scattered worldwide would have chosen obedience to their creator rather than the rebellious ways of humankind, they would not be included among all in this following scripture not believed. . .

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels [preachers worldwide] were flung out along with him. Revelation 12:9

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/ – Satan is no fool, but rather very powerful and the father of lies in all belief via different ways.

Regardless of whatever I try to share in this world today, ‘all’ human beings only know what their own mind via their own human spirit tells them according to its feed being the father of lies; thus we live within a world of division so greatly divided — that humanity can no longer stand through these years which lie ahead being the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this earth, which is en route upon our totally blinded-corrupted-misled and unprepared worldly civilization.

Has your pastor, religious leader, or fellow believers told you that. . .

All versions of the Bible have their share of corruption, mistranslation, lies, and bias.

We are to place no trust in man or religions, but rather look only to our creator through study to show ourselves approved.

Billions believe in the Trinity, and billions don’t — give or take whatever any part of civilization worldwide believes within our world of great deception..

Some belief is the false man made rapture, others don’t.

Many believe in the fires of hell as Elohim’s eternal torture chamber, and others do not.

Some believe in the Torah, feasts, Sabbaths, clean foods, etc. – others being multitudes do not believe in eternal laws as if nailed to the cross.

Most all believe in the buildings of man called the church, whereas few don’t being another mistranslated wrongly used word actually meaning in Greek — called out ones.

Most all believe in paying tithes, even though it is totally unbiblical in the New Testament.

Most believe in the greatest pagan and unwritten religious holidays like Christmas, Easter, and all others worldwide being another form of iniquity.

What I have found, experienced, seen, and felt through these past 10 years without doubt or question is that none, no, not one of any belief on this planet while living in their own worldly ways have any knowledge of the greatest commandment being. . .

“Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in Moses’ Teachings?”

Yeshua answered him, “‘Love the Lord your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ All of Moses’ Teachings and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40)

Now this world of Christianity will say how much they love our Lord along with how much they love others; yet living in actions that clearly show all they really care about is themselves while living on dead faith as written in James 2:14-17; therefore, what our Father sees within all speaking their words of praise, love, hymns, tears, and waving their arms cannot be found within their hearts intent where Yehovah Elohim searches for knowing exactly who we truly are with no words needed.

So now you are being told and warned once again, just as I have been making clear through 16 websites, a published book, and many years of writing — that when all Christians find themselves in great affliction, wars, famine, violence, earthquakes, and brother turning against brother – each shall be returned the same measure (Luke 6:38-46) as what they did for others when all find themselves buried deep within the worst timesoftrouble having no escape, (John 156) nor anyone that really cares about their simple needs – just as my wife and I have been treated by other believers ever since 2007 with so-called family being the worst of all.

Through a decade of hard times past, today is 4/13/2017, and when 6/22/2017 comes I will be eligible for United States Social Security already applied for and in the works through direct deposit here in the Philippines; and that is good, yet also another problem because I do not have my own bank account or the 5000 pesos or $100 required to open one – so we are now trying to sell all that we really have being our 1997 Nissan Jeep with some damage just so we can get a bank account in my name for social security, which to my wife and I living as have-nots since we met in 2007 will make us feel like millionaires; however, I never expected the US economy to hold this long – thus if it should actually come to me, it shall be as a month to month blessing until it becomes no more.

When all finally comes together, at least I can gain the means for moving to the area of Plymouth England where there are many open jobs for a welder and many other trades; unlike America with a hundred million unemployed while heading towards a controlled nation as a police state.

About a two weeks ago pain in my back from lower spinal cord, because of wrongly lifting to much, became so bad that it caused me to just drop without warning – thus had to make a bamboo pole for my support – and added was just two nights ago, for reasons only YHVH knows, that I was not able to even breathe for a short time while experiencing what a harsh death suffocation would be – yet have learned well on how to live on faith with my wife, being who our Father healed in many ways, as my best friend and always by my side regardless of how difficult our life together has been.

100_4664Jeremiah 10:23-25

Because human rule and the lead of world population has always been completely worthless when the good for all humanity becomes the issue, great suffering upon all has always been through wars, genocide, [taken near 300,000,000 lives] and violence; therefore shall continue until human rule completely ends and Satan is removed from his throne as God of this world for the millennial Kingdom of Yehovah Elohim to begin.
