Signs of the Times – Are mystery ‘trumpet blasts’ in sky from God?

In the final book of the New Testament known as the Book of Revelation, angels are shown to be sounding trumpets, accompanied by a variety of supernatural plagues upon Planet Earth.

And now, mysterious, unexplained sounds in the sky that some are likening to

trumpet blasts are puzzling people all over the world, including the United States.

As Britain’s Daily Mail reports, “Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, a selection of videos shot from the Canada to Ukraine, via the U.S., Germany and Belarus show strange goings on above us.”

Get in-depth details about angelic trumpet blasts as well as both the FIRST and SECOND resurrection (yes, there’s a second one, too) in this autographed best-seller that explains in detail what’s coming in your future!

Numerous videos are posted on YouTube from spots all over the world, with people wondering just what is causing the strange phenomenon.

See video and hear the mysterious sound for yourself:

The first time the sky sounds were posted on YouTube was back in 2008, as a resident of Homel, Belarus, made a recording.

Later that year, another anonymous user posted “ear-deafening” sounds they claimed “were not a hoax” echoing through a quiet neighborhood believed to be in America.

In June 2013, Kimberly Wookey of Terrace, British Columbia, Canada, first caught the sound, and has continued her recordings through May 7 of this year.

Wookey said on YouTube: “On the morning of August 29, 2013 at approximately 7:30am I was awoken by these sounds.

“I shot out of bed realizing it was the same sounds I had heard before and I ran looking for a camera to try to capture them with. I came out into the living room to find my seven-year-old son awake and scared wondering what was going on. He had said the noises woke him up as well and shook his window.

“I managed to record three clips showing almost five minutes of these strange sounds. After it was over and I sat down at the computer to upload the video. After checking my Facebook I noticed a lot of locals had heard the same sounds again but this time it was far more widespread.

‘I have no idea what these sounds are but it is pretty strange and I am glad that I was able to catch them this time and share what I heard. The sounds were heard again on Sept 8th at 6:30am so far we have confirmed reports of it being heard from town to the lake, 25km away.”

Wookey is skeptical the sounds are caused by anything unearthly.

“I personally do not believe this has any religious connection, nor do I believe it is aliens, graders, trains, construction, etc.,” she noted. “I do believe it could be a geophysical phenomenon.”

The sound was also captured in Kiev, Ukraine, in August 2011 with one eyewitness saying, “The sound was extremely loud, with some people 30-40km from the recording also hearing it in other cities. It was in the news with the investigation with specialists and scientists, but there is still no exact explanation.”

Some who have heard the phenomenon have reportedly experienced severe nightmares for days afterward.

Aaron Traylor of Montana is among them, who said after recording the sound on February 18, 2012:

I’ve had vivid nightmares ever since I posted the very eerie strange sounds that has Missoula talking and looking towards the sky; awful, awful nightmares.

My wife woke me from a dream last night where she says I was screaming like she’s never heard me scream before.

I was taking my daughter out for her daily exercise along with my dog. I started to hear the sounds early on in our little adventure and the first time it was heard my dog perked her ears up and my daughter stopped in her tracks.

That sound was identical to the one I had taped later, and lasted just as long. Now since I’ve been following this worldwide strange sounds phenomenon for some time, the whole “End of the world” thing popped instantly into my head.

What if this was one of those sounds? I had my phone ready to capture the next one just in case. Sure enough, five minutes later the sound had returned.

Traylor doesn’t think the noise has anything to do with modes of transportation, such as trains or planes.

“The Missoula rail system is one very loud and unpredictable beast. Trains connecting their loads to another is a sound very familiar to locals. Loud bangs and screeches can be heard from nearly 10 miles away at any given point throughout the day,” he said.

“Still, that doesn’t explain the fan-like whirring sound that can be heard at the start of the recording. I’ve lived in this neighborhood for nearly four years and have heard all kinds of planes coming and going overhead and on the runway. I’ve never heard a plane sound like this before.

“My neighborhood is very quiet and we were about three blocks away from any busy intersection during the incident. Can’t say I’ve ever heard an automobile of any kind with that kind of noise.”

In 2012, several people in a parking lot in Allen, Texas, heard the sounds, with one commenting: “It’s weird, I’ve never heard anything like that.”

At the University of Oklahoma, geoscientist David Deming has been writing about a phenomenon called “the Hum” – “a mysterious and untraceable sound that is heard in certain locations around the world by two to ten percent of the population.”

Deming wrote in the Journal of Scientific Exploration that possible sources of the Hum might be telephone transmissions and “aircraft operated by the U.S. Navy for the purpose of submarine communications.”

NASA has said Planet Earth has “natural radio emissions,” explaining: “If humans had radio antennas instead of ears, we would hear a remarkable symphony of strange noises coming from our own planet. Scientists call them ‘tweeks,’ ‘whistlers’ and ‘sferics.’

“They sound like background music from a flamboyant science-fiction film, but this is not science fiction. Earth’s natural radio emissions are real and, although we’re mostly unaware of them, they are around us all the time.”

Some other theories being discussed include:

The sounding of a shofar (ram’s horn), the grinding of the Earth’s tectonic plates, atmospheric pressure, construction work, space aliens, secret sky weaponry such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, and, of course, the activities of angels.

Throughout the Book of Revelation, the apostle John, who was writing Aegean Sea island of Patmos, described the voices of angels as sounding like trumpets.

Trumpets

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” (Revelation 4:1)

The eighth chapter of Revelation notes seven angels having seven trumpets to sound, and when they do, catastrophic events unfold, including a scorching of a third of all green-plant life on Earth, a third of the sea becoming blood and swarms of locusts given the power of scorpions.

The apostle Paul described the resurrection of dead believers in Jesus to occur at the “last” trumpet blast.

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

Signs of the Times – Vatican to officially recognize Palestinian statehood in new treaty

CNN)The Vatican announced Wednesday that it had brokered a treaty with the “state of Palestine,” upsetting Israeli advocates and propelling Pope Francis into the heart of yet another geopolitical fray.

The treaty is expected to be signed “in the near future,” the Vatican said. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, is scheduled to visit Pope Francis on Saturday, the day before the church canonizes two Palestinian nuns.

The treaty is thought to mark the first time the Holy See has formally recognized Palestinian statehood in a legal document. Vatican policy, however, has long held that a two-state solution is the best road to peace in the Holy Land. The Vatican has referred to Palestine as a state since November 2012, when the United Nations voted to recognize it as a nonmember observer state, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman, told CNN. At the time, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI led the Catholic Church.

“Therefore there is a coherent continuity,” Lombardi continued in an email. “Obviously this is an international agreement with the State of Palestine and this reaffirms the recognition.”

According to Palestinian officials, as many as 135 states now recognize Palestine as a state. Few political leaders, though, have the moral authority and popular appeal of Pope Francis.

While the Vatican commended the midlevel diplomats who hammered out the agreement, Wednesday’s announcement seems sure to polish the Pope’s image as a one-man United Nations, confidently wading into turbulent political waters and unafraid of upsetting the status quo. Continue reading

But China is our Friend…Right?

by Kevin D. Freeman on September 24, 2014

Chinaatwar

It was an interesting week last week. For one thing, Chinese company Alibaba debuted as the largest IPO in the history of the world. Larger than the Initial Public Offerings of Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and Microsoft combined. At the same time, there was a Senate report indicating that China hacked U.S. military contractors in a significant way at least twenty times in the past year. In America, we celebrated the success of Wall Street, earning $300 million or so in underwriter fees. In China, they celebrated finding a path to dethrone American technology dominance (from the official Chinese News Agency):

Alibaba’s IPO to end US dominance in technology sector: expert

English.news.cn 2014-09-19

LONDON, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) — Alibaba’s IPO could well be the end of U.S. dominance in the world technology sector, a professor from a Britain’s business school told Xinhua on Thursday.

“Alibaba’s annual growth rate of more than 30 percent shows that the gap between the Chinese companies, Alibaba and Tencent, and U.S. companies is getting ever closer,” said Qing Wang, professor from Warwick Business School, one of the most prestigious and highly selective business schools in the world.

“The ability to understand customers intimately and continuously innovate should enable them to expand overseas with US dominance in the world technology sector gradually being broken,” said professor Wang . . .

Americans seemed undisturbed by the nature of the IPO even though the Hong Kong Stock Exchange rejected it because it did not protect shareholders voting rights. And, Americans ignored a number of alarming issues raised by a Congressional agency staff report. From The Wall Street Journal:

U.S. Report Casts Doubt on Legal Structure of Alibaba, Other Chinese Firms
Structure Used by Alibaba, Other Chinese Internet Companies Seeking U.S. Investors

A U.S. government commission warned that investors face “major risks” if they buy shares in Chinese companies like e-commerce firm Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.

June 20, 2014

A report released this week by a commission that advises Congress on U.S.-China economic issues took aim at the legal structure underpinning Alibaba as well as a host of other Chinese Internet firms, calling it “a complex and highly risky scheme of legal arrangements.” It warned that the structure could lead to losses by shareholders in the U.S.

“U.S. shareholders face major risks from the complexity and purpose” of the structure, said the report, released on Wednesday by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

To Continue READING….

In essence, American buyers of Alibaba received shares in a Cayman-islands corporation that does not have any real ownership or even control in the Chinese company. They get shares in a scheme that might share profits if 1) the company makes money, 2) the accounting shows the profit, 3) the CEO decides to share the profits, and 4) the Chinese government allows it.

Other issues that should have been raised about the largest IPO in history include wondering “What do they intend to do with the money?” and “Will they protect American consumer data?” The reality is that they intend to use a good deal of this money to acquire other American technology. They also intend to grow their American business and learn as much as they can about American consumers. And, if China was able to pressure Google, we can assume they will outright control Alibaba. They’ve already demonstrated that control over Jack Ma, Alibaba’s charismatic founder. As The Wall Street Journal noted, you don’t become China’s richest man without the Chinese government.

All of these issues were raised at a Press Club event hosted by The Center for Security Policy. I voiced similar concerns in a Fox Business segment as well:

But who cares as long as we are making money? China is our friend, right?

We can believe that if we just ignore the reality that China is preparing for “infowar.” The problem is that they are planning :”infowar” as part of all-out economic warfare capabilities according to Bill Gertz:

Xi urges PLA to wage ‘infowar’

by Bill Gertz, September 10, 2014

Chinese President Xi Jinping is urging the People’s Liberation Army to shift its focus from preparing solely for a future conventional and nuclear conflict to developing “information warfare” capabilities as part of Beijing’s military buildup.

Mr. Xi called for developing advanced military capabilities, including information warfare, as part of what he termed the global revolution in military affairs — a term coined by the Soviet Union’s military and later adopted by the U.S. military for what is now high-technology and intelligence-driven warfare.

The military reforms were discussed during a meeting Aug. 29 of the ruling Communist Party’s Central Committee. In addition to being Chinese president, Mr. Xi is chairman of the Central Military Commission — the ultimate power organ in China that directs all military activities.

“Faced with the severe challenges to our national security and stability and the deep-seated contradictions and problems with reform, it is even more pressing that we greatly liberate our ideas and concepts, have the courage to change our fixed mindsets of mechanized warfare, and establish the ideological concept of information warfare,” Mr. Xi was quoted as saying in state media.

State-run China National Television, the Internet propaganda broadcaster, reported Sept. 2 that “apart from safeguarding the country’s sovereignty and territory, Mr. Xi emphasized strategic interests and the ability to counter non-traditional security threats including economic threats” — an indication China is preparing to wage economic warfare in the future.

China currently holds $1.28 trillion worth of U.S. government bonds, and Chinese military leaders in the past have threatened to use the debt holdings to punish the United States for arms sales to Taiwan.

The directive to build information warfare capabilities follows disclosure in a Pentagon report earlier this year that China is engaged in information warfare. Continue reading

(CNSNews.com) – Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse and son of world-renowned preacher Billy Graham, said that given all the “bad news” about the killing of Christians by Muslims in some countries, and attacks on Christians by the media and the government even in America, he cannot “help but wonder if we are in the last hours before our Lord Jesus Christ returns.”

“As I read the news, I can’t help but wonder if we are in the last hours before our Lord Jesus Christ returns to rescue His church and God pours out His wrath on the world for the rejection of His Son,” said Rev. Graham in a post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) website. Continue reading

Surprise, Surprise; American Banks Hacked Following Sanctions

by Kevin D. Freeman on August 28, 2014

EBB42ED9-BA28-4676-99DF-6675D796DEAC_mw1024_s_n

We’ve been consistent since the summer of 2008 in private conversations, 2009 with reports to the government, 2011 in this blog, 2012 with the NY Times bestseller Secret Weapon and 2014 with Game PlanWe’ve told you that this is a global economic war. We pointed out Russian warnings that they could crash the American financial system in retaliation for any sanctions we would impose. We explained that this was a long-term Putin-led strategy to dethrone American economic leadership and remove the dollar from Global Reserve Currency status. We warned that the 2011 NASDAQ hack was just the beginning of things to come. Our stock market and entire financial system have been targetedAnd, not just by Russia.

So, why is anyone surprised to learn that the American banking system was stealthily attacked?

Here’s what we know so far:

1. At least five major banks including JP Morgan Chase were hacked.

2. The hack was extremely sophisticated indicating nation-state involvement whether directly or indirectly.  It was described as Stuxnet-like.   That is far beyond the amateur hacker’s capability. [Of course, it could be an independent group operating with state-level resources and approval.]

3. The prime suspect is Russia. 

4. It appears that the attack might have been to show capability as a “warning shot” across the bow. Even the best-managed systems by the biggest companies appear vulnerable. The attack proved that even the core infrastructure could be breached. 

5. We are behind the curve in addressing these threats. In fact, banks weren’t scheduled to meet with the Treasury on cyber threats until next month.

6. It is VERY serious. Even before the attack was acknowledged, “Treasury Secretary Jack Lew gave a speech focused on the topic at a Wall Street investor conference in July. ‘These incidents represent a direct threat to our economic and national security, perpetrated by state and non-state actors around the world, with growing intensity and increasing sophistication,’ Lew said.” That was BEFORE the latest revelation.

Don’t forget what General Keith Alexander said to 60 Minutes late last year:

Some Foreign Nations Have The Cyberwar Capability To Destroy Our Financial System, NSA Admits

On the CBS program 60 Minutes tonight, National Security Agency (NSA) director Gen. Keith Alexander admitted that “a foreign national could impact and destroy a major portion of our financial system . . . and literally take down the U.S. economy.”

…(Deborah) Plunkett (another NSA official spokesperson) told CBS: “Don’t be fooled. There are absolutely nation states who have the capability and the intention to do just that,” ie “literally take down the U.S. economy.”

This is just further evidence of what we have been saying all along:

We are in a global economic war right now. And, we appear less prepared to face it than we were prepared in November 1941 to face the second world war. Unfortunately, Pearl Harbor is coming.

Is There a Microchip Implant in Your Future???

You can inject one under your skin and no one will ever notice. Using short-range radio frequency identification (RFID) signals, it can transmit your identity as you pass through a security checkpoint or walk into a football stadium. It can help you buy groceries at Wal-Mart. In a worst-case scenario – if you are kidnapped in a foreign country, for example – it could save your life.

Microchip implants like the ones pet owners use to track their dogs and cats could become commonplace in humans in the next decade. Experts are divided on whether they’re appropriate for people, but the implants could offer several advantages. For soldiers and journalists in war zones, an implant could be the difference between life and death. A tracker could also help law enforcement quickly locate a kidnapped child.

“In the long run, chip implants could make it less intrusive than some emerging ID systems which rely on physical biometrics (like your fingerprints or unique eye pattern),” says Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, author of the book “Distraction Addiction” and visiting scholar at Stanford’s University’s Peace Innovation Lab.

Saudi king warns West will be jihadists’ next target

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) – King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.

The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions.

Lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said.

“You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street,” he said, condemning the “cruelty” of such acts.

“It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed’.”

President Barack Obama has yet to decide whether the United States should launch raids against positions held by the Islamic State jihadist group in Syria to follow US air strikes on IS activities in Iraq.

US Secretary of State John Kerry called Friday for a global coalition to combat Islamic State fighters’ “genocidal agenda”.

Writing in the New York Times, Kerry said he and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will meet European counterparts on the sidelines of a NATO summit in Wales next week, to enlist assistance.

They will then travel on to the Middle East to build support “among the countries that are most directly threatened”. Continue reading

For long-term readers of this Blog, or our books Secret Weapon and Game Plan, our Op-Eds, or our Pentagon research, the notion of a Cyber-Economic World War 3 should come as no surprise. Obviously, things are accelerating at a very rapid pace. Alarm bells are ringing loudly.

As a reminder, you can scroll back through previous posts either by date or by topic. We have been warning about this since 2008.

Here are just a few of Op-Eds and headlines from the start of the year (with links to public articles):

De-Dollarization Accelerates – China/Russia Complete Currency Swap Agreement

The last 3 months have seen Russia’s “de-dollarization” plans accelerate. First Gazprom clients shift to Euros and Renminbi, then the UK signs currency swap agreements with China, then NATO ally Turkey cuts ties and mulls de-dollarization,Switzerland jumps in the currency swap agreements, and BRICS create their own non-US-based funding vehicle, and then finally this week, Russia’s oligarchs have shifted cash holdings to Hong Kong. But this week, as RT reports, Russian and Chinese central banks have agreed a draft currency swap agreement, which will allow them to increase trade in domestic currencies and cut the dependence on the US dollar in bilateral payments. “”The agreement will stimulate further development of direct trade in yuan and rubles on the domestic foreign exchange markets of Russia and China,” the Russian regulator said. [To Continue Reading at ZEROHEDGE…]

De-Dollarization Accelerates – China/Russia Complete Currency Swap Agreement

 Tyler Durden's picture

The last 3 months have seen Russia’s “de-dollarization” plans accelerate. First Gazprom clients shift to Euros and Renminbi, then the UK signs currency swap agreements with China, then NATO ally Turkey cuts ties and mulls de-dollarization, Switzerland jumps in the currency swap agreements, and BRICS create their own non-US-based funding vehicle, and then finally this week, Russia’s oligarchs have shifted cash holdings to Hong Kong. But this week, as RT reports, Russian and Chinese central banks have agreed a draft currency swap agreement, which will allow them to increase trade in domestic currencies and cut the dependence on the US dollar in bilateral payments. ““The agreement will stimulate further development of direct trade in yuan and rubles on the domestic foreign exchange markets of Russia and China,” the Russian regulator said.

As RT reports,

 In early July, the Central Bank’s chairwoman Elvira Nabiullina said Moscow and Beijing were close to reaching an agreement on conducting swap operations in national currencies to boost trade. The deal was later discussed during her trip to China.

President Vladimir Putin, during his visit to Shanghai in May, said cooperation between Russian and Chinese banks was growing, and the two sides were set to continue developing the financial infrastructure.“Work is underway to increase the amount of mutual payments in national currencies, and we intend to consider new financial instruments,” Putin said after talks with President Xi Jinping. It appears the deal is done…
