Mother of all Conspiracies
WARNINGS FROM HISTORICAL MEN
A meltdown into another Great Depression is not only possible, but likely. There is a conspiracy to bring on a depression. The Liberals/Socialists policies will cause an economic train wreck and a cashless society. How are Christians to prepare for the coming hard times?
WHAT THIS ARTICLE IS ABOUT:
Many prominent economists and theologians tell us a depression is coming to America. Is a conspiracy behind this coming depression? Satan’s system is the mother of all conspiracies, and he is using them to establish his anti-Christ system, wittingly or unwittingly. The author describes a possible scenario of how Satan can accomplish this feat, and how God is calling Christians to prepare for this depression physically, mentally, and spiritually. A key to the success of this deception/conspiracy is seen in Satan’s ploy to convince the world he doesn’t exist.
This article was written in 2004,
and gets remarkably more prophetic every year!
Satan is the “mother” of all Conspiracies.
Since he does not have a heaven or hell or hope or happiness to offer us, he also has no religion or truth to offer. So over the millennia he has spawned—or mothered—hundreds of counterfeit, conspiratorial religions and philosophical systems for the sole purpose of deceiving us humans and condemning us to hell.
It has always amazed me when so many believers and nonbelievers alike are so quick to mock conspiracy theories. The greatest tool that Satan uses against the masses is to get them to believe that he does not exist. He has been working for many years now through man’s lust for power and money to bring forth leadership that will work his plan on the earth. — G. J. Gadwa II–
Psalm 2 Gives us a Biblical definition for the word “Conspiracy”!
1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
Psalm 64 (Amplified Bible)
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1HEAR MY voice, O God, in my complaint; guard and preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
2Hide me from the secret counsel and conspiracy of the ungodly, from the scheming of evildoers,
3Who whet their tongues like a sword, who aim venomous words like arrows,
4Who shoot from ambush at the blameless man; suddenly do they shoot at him, without self-reproach or fear.
5They encourage themselves in an evil purpose, they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, Who will discover us ?
6They think out acts of injustice and say, We have accomplished a well-devised thing! For the inward thought of each one [is unsearchable] and his heart is deep.
If you don’t believe grandiose conspiracy theories can or will happen, then let me remind you that the Bible already teaches us of a conspiracy to destroy mankind, Christians and Jews, by a Devil and his fallen cohorts. Satan’s diabolical scheme has to be the most preposterous conspiracy of all time because Satan isn’t even a human living on earth! See, you already believe in this conspiracy theory, so seeing it come about on earth in these end times makes perfect Biblical sense.
Warnings From Historical Men
Benjamin Disraeli, first Prime Minister of England stated in 1844: “The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”
Winston Churchill stated to the London press in 1922: “From the days of Sparticus Wieshophf, Karl Marx, Trotski, Belacoon, Rosa Luxenberg, and Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.”
President Woodrow Wilson, “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter: “The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.”
John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York, 1918-1925: “The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation.”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a letter dated November 21, 1933: “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”
Robert Kennedy, former U.S. Attorney General: “All of us will ultimately be judged on the effort we have contributed to building a New World Order.”
So if the American people and others in the West are able to awaken themselves before the greater horrors begin there appears no evidence. And not because the truth isn’t there staring them in the face, but rather because they refuse to see it.

I always search for well documented and confirmed history that give us the names of the people and what they said and did before I will believe the existence and the plans of any so-called conspiracy. A lot of what we hear is NOT documented and confirmed, it is just hear-say that gives good research a bad name and serves as part of the deception … misleading information that serves as a diversion to detract from the actual, factual conspiracy.
Satan is a cunning tyrant whose whole existence is given over to hating, deceiving, and destroying us. The sole purpose of spawning these lies is to set in place his powerful one-world antichrist system.
The best way to hide the source and intent of the mother conspiracy (conspirator) is to spawn a dozen daughter conspiracies that (unwittingly and unknowingly?) front for, or create a diversion for the mother conspiracy. The mother conspiracy can stay in the background, never showing her hand, but forever manipulating all her daughters. Even speaking of them as a mother and her daughters is deceptive. The truth is, these conspiracies are of their father—Satan (John 8:44).
These conspiracies are actually diverse groups that disagree with each other over many issues, and may not even be aware of the existence of some of their sisters, but they have one thing in common. They have more unity and more oneness in the antichrist spirit than the Church presently does in the Spirit of Christ; and they have had it for a long time. They are united in one common purpose, one common world view , one powerful force against Christ and the Kingdom of God. Unity and Oneness are powerful words…
Beware! When a politician or preacher (anyone in authority) authoritatively and compellingly says you must be in UNITY, you must be ONE … with THEM if you want things to go well for you … beware. They are not interested in being in unity or oneness with you or with the God head, but it is you who must be in unity with them. Beware! This is manipulation and control, a form of hypnotism, domination, witchcraft. We will talk about this more…
The Scripture Reading For This Article
2 Timothy 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent (trucebreakers), fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2 Peter 3
1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
“The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men”.
Satan’s Ultimate Goal
Satan’s ultimate goal is to disrupt and destroy Christendom and all social, political, and economic systems on Earth by putting into place dozens of competing systems. Out of the resulting chaos, fear, and mistrust, he plans to set in place a one-world social, economic, and political system that collectively will become his one-world system. This antichrist system will be brilliant! It will work wonders! And a vast majority of the world’s people will welcome it—for a while. But it will not prevail!
What I am about to show you comes out of my 2.5 years of training in church history, and as a computer professional since 1965.
Though there may exist different streams within the Church, as long as each stream leads to the same River, we are joined in purpose. However, the antichrist system has also infiltrated many areas of Christian thought. (The word “Antichrist” means “in place of Christ” more so than “against Christ.”) Even though for years I considered myself to be a social and fiscal conservative and of the “religious right,” I have observed that some “radical right” thought, especially amongst some “conspiracy theory” proponents, have crossed that line. And there is a huge difference in how a “Dominionist” patriot and an Evangelical (premillennialist) patriot defines that word … patriot. (Dominionism is a eschatological or end-time prophecy teaching you need to know about).
What Will The One-World Religion Be?
Now, let’s go another direction for a minute.
The Bible speaks of a one-world religion that will deceive people of every religion on earth in the latter part of the last days. But I think this religion has ALWAYS been the world religion. What can that religion be?
It is highly improbable, and seemingly inconceivable that any existing religion (Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Jewish or Christianity, etc.) could convert the whole world to its doctrine, but religions such as Islam would like to force all living humans into submission to their religion.
That will be the goal of this false religion, not to convert, but force us to submit, to need them in order to survive. How can that be done?
Most people of every religion on earth espouse one religion but live another, and the Bible identifies this religion as: The love of money, and the power it brings (to dominate and survive). In a word: Self.
Christians whose subliminal God is money shows that they can be seduced and drawn away from God. Since the love of money is the world religion, God will cast down this false God, this idol of worship. Therefore it should not surprise us that a worldwide depression is imminent.
I think that Bill Clinton (when running for president) was a prophet to the antichrist system/religion when he said, “it is the economy, stupid!” I think the antichrist system is so subtle, so subversive, so wise, but so powerful —all at the same time— that very few are aware of it’s existence.
This religion has been around since Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden. A religion is anything you love, admire, and devote most of your attention to. Self-preservation —the survival instinct— is so basic to human nature that we don’t think about it, or write about it, or preach sermons on it. That is why the one-world religion can be described as a subliminal, subconscious religion—the perfect conspiracy. We treasure, and are driven, by the gratuitous instinct to survive; and that can be defined as a subliminal, invisible religion.
Self preservation, self gratification, self centeredness, self love, self, lust of the flesh, spiritual luke warmness are other ways of describing our subconscious religion as little gods. That was Satan’s message to Eve in the Garden; “be your own man, think for yourself, decide for yourself what is good and what is evil … be your own god. That is what I (Satan) did!”
Way too many Christians vote their pocketbook and for the power to dominate. Look at what is generally called Bible believing Christians. They appear to be zealous in their faith, yet way too many vote in diametric contradiction to the Word of God when they vote their pocketbook and forget that they are also voting for abortion, the homosexual agenda, anti-Americanism, and socialism (i.e., the most antichrist and liberal of political candidates).
“True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence.”
— Franklin Delanor Roosevelt .
In other words, when we lose our economic security, we also lose our freedom, and are forced to survive any way we can.
I called Bill Clinton a prophet when he was running for president because his, “It’s the economy, stupid” prophecy was fulfilled. The nation believed him… and his subliminal, one-world religion message of self-preservation.
I think a world leader is coming who will exploit this self-preservation instinct and will bring this religion to its logical conclusion. And if possible, even some of the very elect will be deceived by this appeal to their pocketbook and personal security.
On the one hand this is a gloom and doom message, but on the other hand this is the age (the days just prior to the Second Coming) when the church will come forth in her greatest power, glory, and victory. More on that in a minute…
The Adolph Hitler Model
The cruel, demented leadership of Adolph Hitler probably directly resulted in more death and destruction than any other single individual in history. The name Hitler will forever be one of the most ugly scars on human history. However, even Churchill acknowledged that if Hitler had died in 1938, he would have been considered one of the greatest leaders of all time.
A 1000 Mark banknote, over-stamped in red with 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) mark, issued in Germany during the hyperinflation of 1923
When Hitler came to power, Germany was suffering under some of the worst economic and political conditions a nation has suffered during modern times. There was between fifty and seventy-five percent unemployment. The government was bankrupt, and the German Mark fell to an exchange rate of actually being worthless. Mobs ruled the streets, perversion was rampant, and the whole nation tottered on the brink of becoming a Soviet state.
In just four years, Hitler not only balanced the budget; he paid off the national debt while building the most powerful economy in the world. He brought employment to near one hundred percent. He restored Germany’s national dignity and built the most powerful army in the world. He also drove pornography and other forms of perversion from the land. There has never been such a transformation of a country in the history of the world.
Most of the church in Germany was so fooled by Hitler that they helped establish his power base, with some church leaders actually calling him “a messiah.” But what kind of a messiah was he? What was his religion?
The swastika, the main symbol of Nazism, is an age-old Hindu symbol that is still found on many temples throughout India. The word is not even German, but Sanskrit—Svastika—meaning “that which is excellent.” A New Age book has described its meaning as representing “the final stage in which the chakra is active, developed, opened, and energized by awakened kundalini energy.” Thus, the very banner of Nazism stood for the energy that underlies the whole New Age movement. New Agers even acknowledge this. David Spangler makes reference in one of his books to “…the Nazi movement, which had many roots in occultism.” One can also, see the parallel between Nazism and the Ancient Wisdom in the Hindu caste system, with its Brahmin (Aryan) caste and its lower untouchable caste. The Nazis also took the term Aryan—literally, the worthy race—from Hinduism. The word has nothing to do with ancient Germany as many believe but is a Hindu word meaning noble or superior. [Excerpt from, For Many Shall Come In My Name, by Ray Yungen]
Hitler was an occultist. Are we doomed to keep repeating history because we fail to learn from history? Why The World Will Accept The Antichrist System
2 Kings 17:33, “They feared the Lord, but served their own gods.”
We have a nation where the overwhelming majority of the people declare the name of the Lord. Many even claim to be born again, and they actually maybe, but the same ones give themselves to serving many other gods.
When it comes down to choosing between death and survival, the survival instinct in all of us will compel many to overrule our social, economic, political, and religious belief system. Most people will choose to survive at any cost. If possible, even professing believers may choose survival over death, perhaps for the sake of their children.
Look at the Joseph scenario. By the time the seven years of famine were over, ALL the people (except Joseph’s family living in Goshen) chose to sell themselves as slaves of Pharaoh for wheat to survive on. But fortunately, Joseph was benevolent.
The coming world dictator will seem to be a benevolent messiah, but will ultimately show himself to be a malevolent dictator. The book of Revelation describes him as a credible and charismatic leader when he first comes on the world scene. He will most likely claim to be the expected messiah of every major religion on earth. Maitreya fits this description and is already on the scene, but is he actually the Antichrist?
How might Satan accomplish this seemingly impossible goal of world domination?
A Massive World-Wide Depression Is Coming
(i.e., The Mother Of All Depressions)
If you had asked an Amish man during the last depression how he and the Amish community was fairing, he would have asked, “What depression?”
Many people lost everything during the last depression and some committed suicide, but others made a fortune. There is a way to not only survive and live well but in past depressions, you could actually make a fortune if you planned ahead properly.
During the last depression a lot of people who lived off the land (farmers), and had no debt, came through with very little loss. But the federal government and some banks were able to file foreclosure on millions of houses and acres of land. After the depression was over they were then able to rent, lease, or sell all these holdings and made a vast fortune off of them.
In recent years David Wilkerson has been warning us about this coming depression and wrote two excellent books on the subject. They are titled:
- America’s Last Call—On the Brink of a Financial Holocaust
- God’s Plan To Protect His People In The Coming Depression
Long before Wilkerson wrote those books I was teaching that a massive worldwide depression is coming. It could be so severe that there will be no paycheck for anyone, not even the military, police, or government officials.
Consider This Scenario
In my lifetime, America has gone through a depression and several wars. Three of those wars were on this continent. And even as you read this message, millions of Christians in China and other nations are under terrible tribulation, persecution, and martyrdom this very day. In my lifetime at least fifty million Christians have been martyred. To say another war or depression can’t happen in America is not being realistic. But to say we should prepare for such an eventuality … as best we can … is realistic.
Consider this scenario. Let’s say that the foolishness of the world system causes a major depression that the Antichrist can take advantage of. But let’s say God complicates Satan’s plans and makes the depression much worse by bringing on several “natural disasters.” Look at the damage Katrina and Mt. St. Helen did to our economy.
Deadly flu epidemics, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, droughts, floods, tsunamis, terrorist attacks, and wars can cause an economic disaster. National debt and unemployment due to manufacturing going to other countries or a combination of all the above could cause an economic collapse. Put the domino effect into play with enough dominos falling—tink-tink-tink—and we have the potential to bring down the world economy…the worst depression in history.
Under such conditions, there would be little to no money for food or gas. Total anarchy can potentially reign in many areas for a few months until local (National Guard, Para-military groups?) leaders can bring order to their areas, and then begin to rebuild the nation. Millions could possibly die pitiful deaths in the USA and the world because they were not ready for such a disaster, and felt like they had no warning whatsoever. The warning signs were ignored.
How could a worldwide economic depression further Satan’s plans for planet Earth? Consider these possibilities:
- Foreclosure on property loans to gain ownership of millions of homes and millions of acres of land.
- Police state, bringing in martial law, (i.e., outlawing and imprisoning the religious right?)
- Ecology purge…closing factories, stopping cars and trucks, and drastically decreasing the world population. Some environmental groups have been working hard towards such goals.
- Bring in the One World Anti-Christ system.
If God complicates their plans and makes the depression much worse by bringing on several “natural disasters,” that could thwart the Antichrist’s ability to:
- Initiate martial law and a police state. After the initial supply of gas and food that is in stock is used up there would be no way to replenish the supply for a long time.
- Postpone the ability of lending institutions to foreclose on loans.
- The anarchy that could rain in such conditions would be terrible for awhile, but not as terrible as the planned police state would have been.
- This would force the conspirators to come up with “plan B,” a new monetary system. Just a thought.
On a more positive note, here are some other things that might be brought to an end during this depression. We haven’t been able to close the abortion clinics through government and the legal system, but watch this depression close the lucrative abortion mills. And watch other abominable things cease overnight … TV … movies … magazines, and on and on. Not only will the grocery stores close, but so will the courts and the military posts, and everything else you can think of that takes money to operate.
This is all speculation, and a lot of writers will disagree with me. The point I hope to make is, we need to know how to pray, how to vote, and how to prepare physically, mentally, and spiritually for the age we are coming into.
In short, Americans need to turn to God.
Banks Quickly Abolishing Your Ability to Use & Store Cash
By Damon Geller
Many responsible citizens believe in paying with cash and storing their cash at home, in a bank, or in a safety deposit box. But banks & governments have suddenly become hell-bent on abolishing your use and storage of cash, by restricting the ways you can spend & deposit your U.S. dollars, and reporting countless cash transactions to the police & government. The question is, why? The frightening fact is, our government has recently instituted numerous programs to track your financial accounts anywhere in the world, but tracking cash is much harder. In addition, our government aggressively pursues numerous programs to confiscate citizen savings & wealth without due process, and it’s much easier to confiscate digital accounts. Thus, cash has become a huge target. So you better act now to move your savings & wealth out of cash and financial accounts, and into private physical assets like gold & silver, before you have nothing left to protect.
My wife told me some time ago that Chuck Missler said years before I did that American banks will convert to using digital money someday. We read a book on the market (summer of 2010), Aftershock … Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown, by David Wiedemer, Robert Wiedemer, and Cindy Spitzer. On page 185 they say “…The next step in the evolution of money will be the development of an international agency (the global equivalent of an international central bank) that manages a single international currency that is entirely electronic.” The whole 8th chapter is on this subject. These authors predicted all the bubble meltdowns in the past few years, so their credibility is established, and their warnings should be heeded.
[NOTE: Cash transactions can not be easily traced, but cashless transactions can, so there is a push to eliminate cash so our activities can be observed. Then cryptocurrency which can not be traced (yet) came on the scene. So, when and how will that happen… if ever?]
Wikipedia defines Cryptocurrency
A cryptocurrency (or cryptocurrency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets. Cryptocurrencies are a type of digital currencies, alternative currencies, and virtual currencies. Cryptocurrencies use decentralized control as opposed to centralized electronic money and central banking systems. The decentralized control of each cryptocurrency works through a blockchain, which is a public transaction database, functioning as a distributed ledger.
Bitcoin, created in 2009, was the first decentralized cryptocurrency. Since then, numerous other cryptocurrencies have been created. These are frequently called altcoins, as a blend of alternative coin.
In my opinion, the antichrist system can control hard currency and will eventually control cryptocurrency as well. So, cryptocurrency is no eviler and to be avoided than hard currency. The whole point of preparing for the end-times is the need to get completely off the grid (no longer needing money of any kind and the world to sustain you), or be spiritually mature enough that you can live by miracles alone as Moses and the Jews did for 40 years.
Here is the issue that you and I need to overcome. We must know when to be off the grid, and what we will need to be able to do that. Among all these 7 articles that issue has been addressed to the best understanding, we have at this time. I trust that the Lord will reveal more as we approach that prophetic day the world steps into the tribulation.
So, I am temporarily accepting cryptocurrency as a contribution to this ministry. We trust that we will be led of the Holy Spirit to know when to cash out any cryptocurrency we have and then spend that hard currency on hard assets (such as land and equipment, etc).
Pastor Ken Ortize of Calvary Church in Spokane, Washington does a fabulous job of explaining cryptocurrency, blockchain, and quantum computing in these videos. You can’t talk about Bitcoin without talking about blockchain. You can’t talk about quantum computing without talking about AI, CERN, and simulation theory. This is the wave of the future you and yours are living in right now. Those who are in tune with the Holy Spirit will hear what is being said here in this article. Please take Pastor Ortize’s advice and PREPARE for the prophetic times you are living in right now.
This short video is made up of clips from the 4 part series to give a preview and overview of what this technology is and how it may relate to cryptocurrency and the coming one-world system.
Here is the full-length version of all four messages.

A New Monetary System — A Cashless Society — A Warning
I believe this is the time a false savior will come on the scene to restore the economy with a new monetary system. I predict that this monetary system will be digital money (accessed by a computer or an ID card with a chip in it?) in individual bank accounts that can be accessed on the world-wide-web (WWW).
The International Bank in Switzerland can issue an international/digital currency, so they are a prospect in this scenario (and we are now hearing about this prospect in June 2012). Since this digital money is not backed up with anything but faith in the system (much like our paper money today), a huge fortune in worthless credits can be placed in every person’s bank account on earth. Thus a cashless society. For awhile we can all buy, sell, and trade using this miraculous world monetary system…until the world economy is stable again.
True, not all the world has internet access… yet. There are several forms and variations of internet access, and this science grows more advanced and intrusive all the time.
I consider the possibility that some primitives will always remain unreached and not reachable. But between chip implants that are online, computer cafes and smartphones and PC computers, I can imagine most of the western world and the Bible lands having some sort of computer service.
In my opinion, we are to think of the whole world as being the world the prophets were aware of and prophesying to, and that era knew nothing of the two American continents. Their prophecy was to their world, and not necessarily ours.
Restoring the economy sounds good though — BUT— will this just be another deception? Consider this.
In Matthew 24:38 it says “as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.”
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. ~Matthew 24: KJV
This is speculation on my part, but this sounds like peace and prosperity at the time of the rapture, not death and deprivation as one would suspect. Since many of us think that there is a deliberate plan to destroy our economy and society, it only makes sense that these same conspirators plan to also restore the economy and bring peace and order. The master planners –the Beast system– will become great heroes who will be very popular and loved for saving the world. Once everyone is assimilated into this great society and has wealth and security in this new world order of peace and prosperity, then is the time for the contract.
As with any Internet provider, a password will be needed to access our bank account. After the economy is restored, the password can evolve into “the mark of the beast” (spoken of in the book of Revelation). In this scenario, we will need to sign a contract that acknowledges that our hero who saved the world –the Antichrist– is the world President and world Messiah (Pope, Apostle, High Priest, whatever). If you don’t sign the contract you do not have banking privileges. Sign it and your set for life! Happy days are here again. Eat, drink, and be merry. There will be eating and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage again.
The coming time of prosperity (boy will the prosperity preacher love that) will be more dangerous to Christians than the time of the crash of the economy and society. We must be prepared to be self-sufficient before the crash so that we won’t have to take the mark of the Beast in order to prosper and survive.
Does that make sense? Is it consistent with the Word of God?
If we were required to register to be able to use the internet sometime in the future, then we could see the first step towards setting up a bank account for each of us using our registration information and the password assigned to each of us.
In the Babylon 5 TV series (and movies) planet earth had a World President and the world monetary system was called credits. I think I have observed that the Beast system feels compelled to tell who they are and what they are going to do, and they often reveal themselves in movies and TV series. The Star Gate TV series is another example of this.
David Eells says in the second paragraph in his article “I believe that before the middle of the tribulation when the mark is imposed many will have escaped to places of refuge.”
Obviously Eells isn’t pre-tribulation rapture doctrinally, but mid or post. His comments on places of refuge are in agreement with my articles and below comments on Christian Community.
The point being, if Eells is correct, then we can buy and sell up until the time of the catching away. And by his thinking, we can expect the economy to start to recover just prior to this time. Also, we can see a possible model for this in Hitler’s seeming miracle in their German economy before WWII (as described above).
I Say This is the Time to Prepare For Hard Times
Prior To “The Great Tribulation”
with A Totally Self Sufficient
of Intentional Neighbors.
Wisdom says, get off the grid before the grid goes off.
So, what can we do to prepare ourselves (physically, mentally, and spiritually) for such a time? One of the basic characteristics of those whose lives have been established in the Kingdom of God is that they will have peace and come alive, even thriving during times of trouble. This is because they have been prepared to live in the greatest time of trouble the world has ever known. They prepared by building their lives in the Kingdom, not on the things of this world that are so easily shaken.
Many Christians are being called to prepare for such a time by way of a self-sufficient Christian community that does not need to buy, sell, or trade to live comfortably. And most importantly, such communities can serve as a refugee camp. The Amish have lived a self-sufficient (outside the system) lifestyle for centuries, and we can expand upon their model (even though we are not Amish) to receive hurting people.
WHY: The Lord disciplines those whom He loves, and great discipline will come upon the United States because of God’s love for our nation.
The ArkHaven Christian community anticipates the coming of troubled times happening BEFORE the official “Great Tribulation” comes. As I said earlier, millions of Christians in China and other nations are under terrible tribulation and persecution and martyrdom on this very day. To say it can’t happen in America is not being realistic. But to say we should prepare for such an eventuality as best we can is realistic.
It will take a lot of Godly wisdom to know what to prepare for, and how to prepare for it. Understanding how to prepare will take Christians like you receiving a revelatory word from God, and then being obedient to move on the direction God has given you.
I (Kenneth Uptegrove) am reporting on what my wife (Lora) and I feel God has shown us, and many others.
HOW: Providing our own food, water, power, and septic system, such as…
- Truck farming: Hydroponics, greenhouses, gardens, berry bushes, fruit trees, grains, all done by the natural and organic method (the only method available at that time).
- Animal husbandry: Chickens, fish farm, milking goats, draft horses, etc.
- Either an artesian well or a large spring with our own water tower and pipelines.
- Either a large wooded area or a natural gas well on the land for an energy source.
- Several 500 gals. propane gas tanks are an option.
- Solar panels, and will consider 50 ft. wind generators.
- The kind of septic system that purifies wastewater so well that it can be used to water a lawn.
- We will always be dependant upon God as our source and our hope, utilizing what He makes available for us to use to survive and to serve all who come to us.
- Churches, ministries, and investors are welcome to help construct our vision.
WHERE: In the North West corner of Arkansas, preferably in either Monroe, Carroll, or Boone county
PROTECTION: The first question that always comes up is, how do we intend to protect our campus from marauders. We will depend upon the Lord for His divine protection and provision as He promised Moses, Joseph, Noah, and many others. There will be no barbwire fences, and gun towers, or armed guards in uniform. No David Koresh compound stuff. And since we are solidly mainstream Evangelical, there will be no Jim Jones stuff. We will welcome all who come needing help, therefore there will be no need for anyone to feel like they need to kill us and take over the campus.
BIBLE PRECEDENT: These precedents need little introduction.
- Moses showed us that we must accept the possibility that we may eventually and ultimately be living by miracles alone as his people did in the wilderness. God provided them with physical protection, provision, and promise.
- Joseph is another model for us. He had seven good years to prepare Egypt and his family for seven bad years. Whatever time we have left we need to be preparing for the eventuality of the coming bad years, however many years that may be in the future.
- Noah was instructed by God to prepare a place (Ark) that was totally self-sufficient, so he and his family could survive the flood. The Ark was God’s place of promise, provision, and protection. ArkHaven was named after the Ark model but incorporates the insight these three models give us.

- 2 Timothy 3:1 “But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.”
IN CONCLUSION: No matter what your or my eschatology is, the scenario I have presented to you today, will prove to be accurate—but not exact. As always, we will need to hear from God, and be obedient to His instructions on a daily basis, rather than depending on eschatological teaching or some leader we look up to.
Not all Christians will be called to join a Christian community. David Wilkerson talks about other callings in the two books I mentioned earlier. But we all must ask God if what was said in this article is from Him or not. And if you sense that God is telling you, “Yes, it is,” then you need to ask Him what He would have you do to prepare for this coming time.
I always search for well documented and confirmed history that gives us the names of the people and what they said and did before I will believe the existence and the plans of any so-called conspiracy. A lot of what we hear is NOT documented and confirmed, it is just hear-say that gives good research a bad name and serves as part of the deception … false, misleading information that serves as a diversion to detract from the actual, factual conspiracy.
