Sweden Has Become a War Zone
The nation of Sweden is in my view one of the craziest places on planet Earth. Muslim immigrants have caused crime rates to soar to record levels, and the Swedish government and the news media are totally incapable of dealing with the marauding Muslims. Their ineptitude is so bad they don’t even recognize the problem.
Late last year, immigrants went on a rampage, setting dozens of cars on fire. The damage to the vehicles was in the tens of millions of dollars. The event got very little coverage by the Swedish national and international press. Within a few days, it was like the attack had never happened.
Swedish author Björn Ranelid recently warned that the level of crime and violence the previously sedate country is experiencing amounts to a “small scale war.”
“Sweden is at war and it is the politicians who are responsible. Five nights in a row, cars have been set on fire in the university town of Lund. Such insane acts have occurred on hundreds of occasions in various places in Sweden over the past fifteen years. From 1955 to 1985, not a single car was ignited in Malmö, Gothenburg, Stockholm or Lund…. None of these criminals are starving or lacking in access to clean water. They have a roof over their heads and they have been offered free schooling…. They do not live in dilapidated houses…. It is called upbringing and this is missing for thousands of girls and boys in Swedish homes today.” — Björn Ranelid, Swedish author, Expressen, July 5, 2019.
The CEO of Volvo recently stated that the company is considering moving its headquarters out of Sweden, partly due to a rise in violent crime. Håkan Samuelsson told a conference that the car maker was losing its appeal to foreign experts and engineers and further explained his concerns during an interview with SVD Näringsliv.
“We are building cars, we cannot solve the other problems, someone else must do that,” the CEO said, adding that it is becoming more difficult to attract workers due to Sweden’s worsening reputation.
“It’s definitely not helping when people read about the shootings in Gothenburg and wonder if they really dare to move to Gothenburg,” said Samuelsson.
He said if “the situation” does not improve, the company may even have to consider leaving Sweden at some future date.
Notice that Samuelsson didn’t mention what was causing him to contemplate moving his whole company to another nation. He didn’t say the M word because you can’t link the followers of the Koran with any type of crime problem.
The Chief of Police in Gothenburg County, Erik Nord, denied there was a problem, accusing Samuelsson of getting misinformation from social media. Chief Nord is a self-deluded liar. Some of his units are under so much attack from Muslim youth, there are some areas of the city they don’t dare go into. When they do have a presence in Muslim zones, their buildings have to be built like bunkers.
In 2017, a Swedish police report (“Vulnerable Areas 2017”) showed that there are 61 such areas – also known as no-go zones – in Sweden. They encompass 200 criminal networks, consisting of an estimated 5,000 criminals. Most of the inhabitants are non-Western immigrants and their descendants.
The Swedish National Forensic Centre estimated that, since 2012, the number of shootings classified as murder or attempted murder had increased by almost 100 percent.
In 2018, Sweden experienced a record number of lethal shootings, 306 in all. Forty-five people were killed and 135 injured nationwide.
It would be bad enough that these Muslim immigrants are armed with atomic weapons. They also make bombs to blow things up. It is just unreal to have them using explosives to cause mayhem, and the authorities just shrugged it off. They sighted crazy excuses like: It’s because “young people are unemployed or “these are young people who have not found their place in society.”
If you are wondering how people can work in this madness, I found a guideline issued by the city of Malmö municipal workers. Under the heading, “Personal safety – tips and advice on how to avoid getting into unwanted situations,” the municipality advises its employees to “Plan your itinerary – know your area…try to minimize the time from when you park your bike/car until you enter [the destination].”
In the book of Isaiah, God warns that the day will come when he will use children to oppress society. I think the prediction is a perfect explanation for why we have young people turning places like Sweden into a war zone.
“And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them” (Isaiah 3:4).
“As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths” (Isaiah 3:12).
Don’t Fret, George
My desire was to take this week’s Nearing Midnight commentary in a direction other than end-times geopolitics. It seems this area of stage-setting for fulfilled prophecy has too often dominated my thinking on how near we might be to Christ’s call to the Church. But, my desire was overridden; I am convicted, by the Spirit’s nudge to deal again with things involving globalism.
In preparing for taping a television interview (which by the time this commentary appears will have been completed), one of the interview questions the network gave me kept flashing in my mind’s eye: “If we’re headed to a new world order and one-world system…if it’s been prophesied in Scripture…then what would you say to those who might ask, ‘Then, why fight against it?’”
The first answer that leaped to mind was Paul the apostle’s exhortation as recorded in Ephesians chapter 6. That’s the one we’ve used often in these articles –the description of the battle we face: not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We as believers are to dress in the whole armor of God and stand against this evil.
I can find no better reason in Scripture for doing as instructed in that preparation for battle against the things so obviously on Satan’s agenda as we near that midnight hour of the Tribulation.
We who name the name of Christ are not alone as we fight this crucial battle. The Lord Himself is leading the way.
I don’t want to be misunderstood here. I do not intend to give the current president of the United States glory that belongs to our Lord. Mr. Trump, as pointed out many times in these essays, is but an instrument used to accomplish God’ will–wittingly or unwittingly. I do, however, believe that this president is beginning to get the message, through those God has placed around him. That message is that he–Mr. Trump–is in that office and is apparently, for a time determined by the God of Heaven, impervious to the unbelievably virulent assaults that continue to come against him.
So it was that I kept having the interview question flashing in my thoughts.
“If we’re headed to a new world order and one-world system…if it’s been prophesied in Scripture…then what would you say to those who might ask, ‘Then, why fight against it?’”
The answer, in addition to the one involving Ephesians 6, should include this: We should fight against the globalists trying to bring on the Antichrist platform for world rule because the struggle is working. True, it is a temporary stopgap against the evil that is so obviously assaulting America’s sovereignty and the last bastion of freedom around the world. But it is indeed working for this end-of-the-age moment so near the time of the Rapture.
The Lord is seeing to it that we are able to stand against that wickedness in high places. That force consists of Satan’s minions, both human and demonic.
We have to look no further than one considered by many to be a prime mover in the effort to bring America into a one-world configuration, to bring this president of the United States down so that a globalist can be installed in the office.
We get a picture of our struggle being successful by looking at a quite interesting article:
George Soros recently expressed his frustration that “everything that could go wrong has gone wrong” referring to the rapid dismantling of the New World Order spearheaded by President Donald Trump.
The billionaire globalist who financed of countless Color Revolutions all across the world told the Washington Post that he was “living in [his] own bubble” due to failing to foresee Trump’s meteoric rise.
Soros expressed fears that Trump “is willing to destroy the world” and vowed to “redouble [his] efforts” by pouring millions of dollars into opposing everything that the President stands for all across the world.
In a recent report by the New York Times, it was revealed that Soros and Hillary Clinton paid women to accuse Donald Trump of rape.
Since the report broke, Soros gobbled up a lion’s share of the publication by buying $3 million worth of stocks in the NY Times.
While the Hungarian-American might come off as full of doom and gloom in his interview, he actually has a reason to feel that way because Trump has single-handedly presided over the dismantlement of the Liberal-Globalist world order that Soros has worked for decades to build. (George Soros: Trump Is Winning, He’s Destroying the New World Order, Globalist fears the Presidents dramatic rise in popularity, Daniel Newton, @ Neon Nettle, 22nd June 2018, © press)
As indicated in the title of this article, George shouldn’t fret. He’ll eventually get the new world order he craves. He has God’s Word on it:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
But that same Word goes on to say further:
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (Revelation 19:11-15)
Come to think of it, George, on second thought, you should be worried. No doubt about it!
