George Soros: The Devil’s Money Man

A light read of the Wikipedia Bio for multi-billionaire hedge fund tycoon George Soros would paint him as a kind old philanthropist. After making a fortune speculating on currency and stocks, he now spends most of his time giving money to a host of charities.  In reality, Soros is one of the most evil men alive.

The first thing that needs to be known about Soros is the sinister role he played in World War II. When he was a young man in Nazi occupied Hungary, he participated in the confiscation of Jewish property. The Nazi official farmed out the dirty task of rounding-up Jews to locals. Soros knew that the people whose belongings he was helping to steal were being murdered. In a 1998 interview with CBS’ Steve Kroft, Soros admitted having no remorse over his actions in WWII:

Well, of course I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.

Soros is clearly a sociopath because he used these same heartless ethics to build up his wealth. Most investors earn capital gains by buying stock in companies that grow in size. Soros mostly makes his  profits by selling things short. He would often trigger a crash by talking down a nation’s currency. Soros is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” because of his short sale of $10 billion worth of Pound sterling, making him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 UK currency crisis.

He played a key role in the 1997 Asian financial crisis. As the currency of one country after another would come under strain from their nation’s debts, Soros repeated what he did with the British pound. Millions of people had their lives ruined while Soros was raking in billions of dollars from his short sales.

Soros will occasionally give money for projects that benefit people, but the vast majority of his donations go to causes that do more harm than good. In the U.S., he has given money to Moveon.org, Black Lives Matters and various leftist think tanks. He supports groups that promote street riots and the disruption of political events. He gave $33 million to fund riots in Ferguson, Missouri. At last month’s so-called Woman’s Rally, 50 of the speakers was on George Soros payroll.

Europe’s migrant crisis has Soros’s fingerprints all over it. The billionaire wants to use open borders as a tool for changing the political landscape of Europe. Leaked documents from Soros’ think-tank have revealed that rising xenophobia and hostility toward migrants are part of his plan to bring about global governance.

The Democratic Party received a huge amount of money from PACs that Soros controls. He had placed large bets on Hillary Clinton. Records show that Soros supported a few Republican candidates, giving money to Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, and Lindsey Graham in 2016.

Some nations are starting to wise up to Soros. Russia was the first to call out Soros for his interference in Russian politics. Soros’ Open Society Institute and Foundation had a plan to destabilize Russia, which was dubbed the “Russia Project.” In November 2015, the Russian Prosecutor-General’s office announced the proscription of the Soros organization for endangering Russia’s constitutional order and national security.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has become a major foe of Soros. He now leads the anti-Soros groundswell in Europe. Orban is pushing to have all non-governmental organizations (NGOs) backed by Soros expelled from Europe.

I don’t have much hope for Soros ever becoming a political pariah. The liberal media will never speak ill of him, and politicians are always in need of money—even from a Nazi collaborating war criminal.

George Soros will continue to hand out checks to groups and individuals who share his globalist view. Since time is short, there is a high chance that the beast of Revelation is on his contribution list.

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:5-8).

Trump and God’s Purpose

Mention has been made many times through opinion that goes something like this: Trump isn’t a godly person, yet neither was Nebuchadnezzar and other kings and leaders the Lord chose down through the  centuries to do great things–to serve great purposes. So, God can use Donald Trump to accomplish what the Lord wants accomplished.

Considering the 180-degree course change this nation has embarked upon in this presidential election, it is, I believe, an understatement to say that God must be up to something big with the election of Donald J. Trump–that is, to something profound.

The abrupt turning away from advocating for the homosexual agenda and other forms of aberrant behavior, and toward championing protection of moral values and Judeo-Christian principles upon which the nation was founded, is amazing to say the least. No one would have imagined strongly, during the early days of the just past election season, that the Christian faith would so soon come under the protective hand of a presidential administration. Especially this was unthinkable because the previous administration adamantly embraced the Muslim faith in ways that baffled those not a part of the extreme political left.

That political left just mentioned has been completely driven to acting in maniacal ways by the Donald Trump victory. It is astounding that the fever-pitch of the enragement continues to build with each succeeding day Trump is in office.

Psychiatrists and psychologists who study mass hysteria conclude for the most part that such a level of rage is impossible to maintain over an extensive period of time. Yet we daily observe the opposite. The absolute furious, even lunatic, behavior continues and even grows over anything and everything that involves President Donald  Trump.

Anyone who demonstrates the slightest support for  this president has the political hounds of the netherworld descend upon their lives. It is astounding to witness. And, as often as not, it is somewhat amusing, so long as the insane rants are kept to the verbal and not the physical level such as the violence that took place in Berkley and surrounding other universities. The corporate world is infected and affected by the lunacy. CEOs, such as that of Starbucks, for example, climb eagerly onto the anti-Trump hate-wagon at the risk of alienating half their customer base or clientele. Amidst all the silliness, clothing designers refuse to design the new first lady’s clothing. The fashions produced by the president’s daughter are ripped from the fashion lines of clothiers.

In the halls of government we have the likes of Democrat Senator Charles Schumer weeping on the Senate floor. He tells sobbingly how it breaks his heart that the few people are detained at the airports because of President Trump’s temporary ban of people coming in from the seven nations Schumer’s own Democrat President Obama put on the banned list several years ago. The senator, himself, wholeheartedly backed the banning of such entrants into America under Obama’s executive order.

We watch the Democrat committee members throw temper tantrums, refusing to attend the cabinet committee hearings and undertake other childish actions to hold up proceedings.

We listened to the attempted grilling of New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady about why he was friend to President Trump. They ignored relevant football questions in anticipation of the upcoming Super Bowl and went for the jugular in order to, hopefully, score hate-filled political points, in my view.

But, all this theater, both entertaining and troubling to the process of our representative democracy–our republic– pales in comparison to the intrigues to be analyzed on the international level.

The new president’s breathtaking movement toward fulfilling campaign promises makes clear in my own thinking that the Lord of Heaven put Trump in place for developments that are going to stagger the world. Prophetic fulfillment –rather, preparation for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy– is, of course, much more significant than the just mentioned fulfillment of campaign promises.

We can, if attuned to God’s Word on the wind-up of the age, see things developing that, as I said, will stagger the world.

One example is the fact that the enemies of Israel who had curried favor with the Obama administration are dumbfounded that their position relative to having the  favorable attention of the U.S. president has drastically and abruptly changed.

Speaking to Newsweek last week, Saeb Erekat, go-between for  PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas in dealing with both Israel and the U.S. found a totally different relationship is now in effect.

Indicating the PLO is almost in panic, he said, “I don’t know any of them [Trump’s advisers]. We have sent them letters, written messages. They don’t even bother to respond to us.”

Trump is at the same time apparently considering movement of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem –a thing that many say will cause an immediate Islamist uprising. The president, additionally, has installed a thoroughly pro-Israel ambassador within the U.N. and has reached out warmly to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Third only to the change in attitude toward Christianity and return to constitutional sanity and the 180 degree turn around on treatment of Israel, are the actions President Trump is undertaking toward restoring America as leader of the free world.

Trump’s geopolitical and fiscal aggressiveness thus far shown is affecting global alliances militarily. The new president’s actions are having profound effects on the world economy.

My own thinking on all of this causes  wonder over whether we might be seeing a specific stage-setting given by Jesus, Himself.  Again, that prophecy is found  in Matthew 24: 36-42 and Luke 17: 26-30. The question: Are we on the verge of witnessing an economic boom, in the midst of which the Rapture of the Church will occur?

Something big is up. One can sense it in one’s spritual bones. God has Trump here and at this time for some great purpose.

Donation Drive February to April

A couple weeks ago we redirected the RaptureReady.com domain to the site’s new look. After eight long months of transferring thousands of files and creating hundreds of new templates, we reached the point where we were ready to move to a WordPress format. There are still thousands of older files waiting to be added to the site. We want to make sure the server could handle the traffic load before adding any more articles.

The reason for the move was driven by two important factors. The old site  format was not compatible with mobile devices and search engines where penalizing our ranking for this lack   of compatibility. With half the people visiting RR on a smartphone or some type of tablet, it became vital for us to reformat the site to accommodate small-screen technology. The move has dramatically improved our search visibility in sites like Goggle, Yahoo  and Bing. The traffic for the top five key phrases, used by people to find RR in search engines has more than doubled.

Another factor pressing us to move was the growing age of our Windows based HTML files. In 2010, Microsoft stopped updating their “Expressions” Web editor. WordPress is constantly being updated and it runs 40 percent of all websites.

The popularity of this format allows us to take advantage of a huge variety of themes and plugs. One of these applications connects RR to social media sites which allows readers to share articles with their friends and family. I noticed last week one article was posted 700 times on Facebook. At times when prophetic events are very active, these resources can be posted and    reposted numerous times.

The folks at Exodus Design added a very impressive feature to the bottom of the site. The yellow “translate” button will allow visitors to convert the text of the site into 104 languages. With 99 percent of the people visiting RR coming from English based IP addresses, this feature can be a very import tool for introducing a whole new field of people to the end-time gospel message.

We still working on improving the functionality of the site, and your input is very helpful. Within days of going live with the site, several people noticed that the articles didn’t change colors when previously clicked on. If you think of something that can improve the site, please send me your suggestions.

“Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation’” (2 Peter 3:3-4).

The day will eventually come when the Lord return to rapture away his bride. When that event takes place, there is going to be a huge scramble for prophetic information.  Since RR is one of the largest and most search-relevant site related to the rapture on the net, a huge number of people will come here for answers.

The renovation of the site does have a few minor downsides. Regular updates to the software are required in order to keep the WordPress platform up to date with the current browsers and mobile devices and ahead of malware and virus attacks. The Xenon Server that now hosts RR is triple the price of our old server. The added costs are worth gaining the ability to reach a wider audience.

In order to maintain our progress, the site needs your financial support. I call on every Bible-believing Christian to help us maintain this beacon of hope. As the world literally disintegrates around us, I ask, “What other endeavor could possibly be of greater importance?”

We have three ways you can contribute to Rapture Ready and enable our efforts to expand our reach. You can send a financial gift via our postal address, you can make a one-time donation by a Credit card. And you can sign-up to make monthly donations via PayPal. More information can be found on our Donation page.

Doomsdayers’ Diatribe

Six days into the presidency of Donald J. Trump, the humanistic  gurus of the community known as the” Atomic Scientists” raised a ruckus. They lamented that we are within two and a half minutes of nuclear midnight. This is supposed to mean that global catastrophe is closer, perhaps, than it has ever been.

The atomic scientists’ perception as the unthinking–bumbling, or perhaps deliberate evil–of the new president make the doomsday clock time-setters nervous indeed.

Their joint declaration states, “Both his statements and his actions as president-elect have broken with historical precedent in unsettling ways. He has made ill-considered comments about expanding the U.S. nuclear arsenal. He has shown a troubling propensity to discount or outright reject expert advice related to international security, including the conclusions of intelligence experts. And his nominees to head the Energy Department and the Environmental Protection Agency dispute the basics of climate science.”

I have written in these commentaries for many months that the globalists’ key rallying point for trying to bring about the new world order they seek has been global warming. It is now called climate change. The luciferian rant is ratcheting up in every aspect of geopolitical atmospherics. However, we can expect, I have absolutely no doubt, an even more massive uptick in the assault. Climate change will be the spear tip of the campaign against God’s order of things as we move deeper into this administration.

The scientists in question collectively issued the accusation–highly disturbing in their view- that Trump, during the presidential campaign, talked about the need to increase and upgrade nuclear weapons capability. At the same time, they ranted that he spoke against their and the general, scientific community’s overwhelming consensus that climate change poses a threat beyond any other to the well-being of the planet.

All the while they’ve said nothing of former President Obama’s trying to anger Russia’s Vladimir Putin in the last months of the Obama administration–a thing that gave Putin fodder to proclaim the need to further increase the Russian nuclear arsenal.

Like in every other instance of hypocritical treatment by media and by the humanistic, scientific community, Obama gets a pass, while their collective ire descends full force on the one who defeated them in the American electoral process.

They ignored that international relations have deteriorated dangerously during the Obama years, rather noted fawningly that the former president in 2010 called for a nuclear-free world.

At the same time, they pointed out angrily their convoluted and quasi-accurate assessment that Trump suggested South Korea and Japan might consider developing nuclear weapons since North Korea and even China represent growing threats. They berated Trump and his six-day-old administration for having no “firm plans” to extend the controversial “Iran nuclear deal.”

The doomsdayers further castigated Trump and laid out their great fear his winning the American presidency has wrought.

“The political situation in the United States is of particular concern. The Trump transition team has put forward candidates for cabinet-level positions (especially at the Environmental Protection Agency and Energy Department) who foreshadow the possibility that the new administration will be openly hostile to progress toward even the most modest efforts to avert catastrophic climate disruption.”

Please believe me. This is not the last we will hear of the climate change madness.

Those of the “million woman march” and the “if- it-feels-good-do-it” crowd lost their “political fast-track to succeeding” they were previously on. These, as we have witnessed, are furious to the point of displaying mental instability But the globalists elite of this world, working to bring in Antichrist’s regime–even if unknowingly–are exceedingly more angry and determined that this president will be removed by hook or crook.

We already hear the volume increase on talk of impeaching him. There are more than mere hints that a coup d’état are in the wishful thinking of the angriest of the nation’s power brokers.

It does not, nor should it, surprise, that this level of rebellion is raising its ugly, serpent-like head. We only have to go to the great book of Revelation to understand the extremes to which fallen man will go when they don’t get their way.

There will be a rebellion of the most horrific magnitude ever at the end of the Millennium–the thousand-year reign of Jesus Christ. This uprising will occur, we are told through prophecy, after the rule of the only perfect Ruler in all of human history.

And, this gets us back to the Doomsday Clock scientists’ forewarning of Trump causing the destruction of the earth because of his declaring as lunacy their climate change mantra. Well, maybe it’s I–not Trump–who call it lunacy, but he adamantly opposes it–and them nonetheless.

The fact that Revelation 20:7-9 tells us there will be this last, satanically led rebellion in an attempt to dethrone the Creator of all things lets us know that there will still be a planet earth, despite President Donald Trump, and even seven years of Tribulation.

Also, it proves, in my estimation, the lunacy of the doomsdayers’ diatribe.
