October 7th, 2016
On September 28, FEMA, the FCC, and the National Weather Service conducted a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). EAS allows the federal government to take complete control of the content of television and radio stations, as well as cable systems.

Broadcasters are required to place the EAS switch between their studios and the station’s transmitter. When the government activates the switch, the broadcaster’s own sound and picture are replaced by the government’s.

Only once before has this system been tested nationally. That was in November of 2011. There were several glitches and the system failed to perform adequately.

Apparently, last week’s test was a complete success.

Ostensibly, EAS will be used to alert the public in the event of an impending natural disaster, probably a catastrophic weather emergency. Maybe even a national defense threat. Who could object to that? I don’t.

But we’ve all seen movies where the super-villain somehow interrupts every broadcast in the nation (or the world) to announce his threats or demands. In real life, the EAS system used far too many and varied protocols for that scenario to be even a remote possibility.

But EAS is now part of the wider Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). It is based largely on the internet. This wider system not only has the power to commandeer broadcast and cable content, it can also access smart phones.

After the recent bomb attacks in New York and New Jersey, the government sent out a warning to smart phone users in that area to be on the lookout for the primary suspect. For the first time (unlike an Amber Alert or an Emergency Weather Alert), they transmitted the man’s picture.

Interestingly, your smart phone gives you control over the kinds of alerts or notifications you receive, such as Amber or weather alerts. But you do not have the ability to disable an alert from the White House. The President’s order overrides everything else.

In view of what Bible prophecy says about the Antichrist’s ability to communicate with the entire world, I think this is an interesting development.

Someone recently remarked to me that the EAS is old news. It’s been around for years.

My thought was that it has never worked satisfactorily. Until now. It was never fully comprehensive. Until now.

I replied that every system or tool the Antichrist needs to accomplish his worldwide takeover has been in development for years, decades, even centuries. What makes it interesting is that they are all coming into completeness and full utility now. Just in time for the Antichrist’s arrival.

Something else makes the rapid emergence of the tools and mechanisms he will need even more amazing. That is the fact that they are all being placed into the hands of global entities and authorities beyond the control of individual nations and states.

As of October 1, oversight of the internet has been completely ceded to an international agency. The ultimate authority to grant internet domain addresses now rests with a corporation outside the reach of the United States government. It remains to be seen what protections and rights that we, as American citizens, will now have available to us.

That pattern is repeating itself over and over. On September 20, President Obama told the United Nations that the United States has too much power and needs to relinquish some of its sovereignty. I know that’s hard to imagine, but it’s part of a worldwide trend.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a perfect example. That agreement took years to negotiate and is over 5,000 pages long. Though it is promoted by our leadership as a “trade” agreement, actually “trade” is only a small part of what it governs.

By agreeing to it, the United States is ceding an alarming amount of our own sovereignty and right of self-determination to a group of shadowy, globalist bureaucrats. And the TPP leaves very little recourse to us if we find it to be oppressive or harmful to our interests.

Most of it was negotiated during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. In 2012, she called it, “…the gold standard in trade agreements.” Now that she’s running for president, she claims to be against it. But if elected, you can be sure she will reverse course again and promote it vigorously.

TPP legally obligates its members to implement the United Nations’ Agenda 2030. That’s the program the UN claims will end poverty and pollution by 2030. Its provisions first become active in 2018.

Agenda 2030 is an update of the notorious Agenda 21. It passed the UN unanimously last year. And it calls for massive changes in all our lives. It is literally a scheme to subjugate mankind under the heel of corporate and international elites.

When the Antichrist assumes power, he will need global tools and organizations, as well as incredible technology, to accomplish his purpose. And it looks now like he will have everything he needs. Right on time. Just as the ancient prophets predicted.

Last week, Israel’s last major founding figure passed away. Shimon Peres died at age 93.

As a young man in his mid-twenties, Peres was part of the group that established the modern state of Israel. He joined the team in 1947, almost exactly one year before the War of Independence in 1948. He was a trusted protege of “modern Israel’s founding father,” David Ben-Gurion.

From the beginning, Ben-Gurion entrusted young Peres with a variety of important tasks and positions. Throughout his long service to his nation, Peres served as Director General of the Israeli Defense Ministry, Minister of Finance, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Internal Affairs, and other high positions.

He oversaw the creation of Israel’s military. In the 1950s, he convinced Ben-Gurion to initiate Israel’s nuclear weapons program. That program alone has possibly been the major factor in Israel’s effective deterrence of invasion by its much larger enemies.

In later years, Peres was twice Prime Minister of Israel. Later, he served for seven years in the largely ceremonial office of President of Israel. In fact, he is the only person in Israel’s history to have been both Prime Minister and President.

But in the 1990s, the man who worked so long and hard for Israel’s security, made a terrible mistake.

As Israel’s Foreign Minister, Peres was the primary force behind The Oslo Accords. Even though he shared Nobel Peace Prizes with Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin for their efforts, the Oslo Accords have been called “Israel’s Munich.”

It was a disaster of the first order. Oslo led to major intifadas (almost immediately), bus bombings, wars, and a general sense of chaos throughout the land.

The Oslo Accords never brought peace.

Though he was wrong in this instance, I believe we can say that Shimon Peres tried with all his might to bring peace to his nation.

In his speech on the White House lawn the day the Accords were signed, Peres said, “Let us bid once and for all farewell to wars, to threats, to human misery. Let us bid farewell to enmity, and may there be no more victims on either side.”

I believe he truly longed for those words to be true. Can you imagine how disappointed he must have been when the opposite happened?

I met Mr. Peres only once. I have always counted it a privilege to have spent time with one of Israel’s most important founding figures.

Now that the last of the generation of courageous leaders that founded Israel (God’s timeclock) has passed, it reminds me that every day we are moving closer to the climax of this Age of Grace.

Speaking of which, this week I want to tell you the difference between the Resurrection and the Rapture.

Let me give you a hint. If you are reading this, you don’t need Resurrection, you need Rapture!

But you can prepare yourself for both, in exactly the same way!

Secrecy, Lies and Deception!

September 9th, 2016
This week on ‘The Hal Lindsey Report’
It’s been a little over a year since the P5+1 nations, led by the United States, agreed to the Iran nuclear deal.

Throughout the negotiations, Americans sensed that we were being intentionally left in the dark about many things. Many of us felt that we were actually lied to about other things.

Over time, we saw a major shift in the priorities of the Western nations. It slowly became clear that the Obama Administration wanted a deal — any deal — no matter the cost.

Shortly after the agreement went into effect, we learned that there were parts of it that neither the public, nor most Congresspersons would ever see. Deals within deals. Secrets within secrets.

President Obama still sees it as his signature foreign policy achievement. In a press conference last month, he summed up why he believes it will be his legacy. He said, “It worked.”

But did it? How can we really know? Not only are parts of the agreement incredibly obscure — so we can never be certain what America actually agreed to — but Iran operates under such a cloud of secrecy and deception that we can never trust that they are complying with the agreement. And we apparently demanded little or no verification.

After the August press conference in which the President touted the success of the deal one year on, Caroline Glick of The Jerusalem Post weighed in with her assessment. She wrote: “As it works out, everything that Obama said about the deal with Iran during his press conference was a lie. Some of his lies became apparent within hours.”

Pretty strong words, indeed. But not as strong as those from the Israeli Defense Ministry.

During his press conference, the President said that Israel “acknowledges that this has been a game changer and Iran has abided by the deal and they no longer have the sort of short-term breakout capacity that would allow them to develop nuclear weapons.”

Israel responded immediately. And it wasn’t in joyous agreement.

In fact, the Israeli Defense Ministry compared the Iran nuclear deal to the sell-out of Czechoslovakia by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in his meeting with Adolph Hitler at Munich in 1938. They said that Chamberlain’s agreement did not prevent World War Two and the Holocaust because the Western leaders ignored the statements of intent that Hitler had been making.

They also said that this deal will not prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and that it openly declares its intent to destroy the state of Israel.

Remember that the Bible predicts that Iran — specifically — will team with Russia — also described specifically — to invade Israel in an attempt to destroy it.

Can Bible prophecy be any more alive and relevant that it is this very moment? As we say at the top of our show, “Yesterday’s prophecies, today’s headlines!”

Because I have spent a great part of my life immersed in the Bible’s prophecies regarding the times in which we live, I am seldom surprised by these events and developments. On the contrary, because I can read the Bible, I expect them.

On the other hand, I am usually a bit surprised, and always saddened, when I see Christians line up against God’s chosen people, the Jews. And the state of Israel. The establishment of which, may I remind you, started the countdown to the end of this Age on God’s timeclock.

Last month, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) held its Churchwide Assembly. At that gathering, the delegates representing the individual congregations agreed to join their voices and efforts together to urge America to force Israel to walk the plank.

I’m on old sailor, so that’s how I would describe it. You may choose to say, “…urge America to force Israel to commit national suicide.” Either way, the result is the same.

The ELCA has now joined the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, otherwise known as BDS. They seek to isolate Israel, hobble it, and force it to allow the establishment of a full-on terrorist state within its heartland.

Under the present circumstances, enabling “an independent Palestinian state,” as the ELCA demands, is tantamount to allowing ISIS to live next door. That’s because Hamas, which is a globally recognized terrorist organization, will be chosen by the Palestinians to lead the new state. Hamas and ISIS are two peas in the same pod.

It amazes me that so many Christians and Christian organizations are quick to demand that Israel put itself and its citizens in mortal danger. They spend time and effort (oftentimes displaying incredible ignorance about the reality on the ground in Israel) in castigating the Israelis for their treatment of the Palestinians and their state. They ignore the fact that there is not and never has been a Palestinian people or a Palestinian state.

Yet these same people — Pope Francis foremost among them — make no effort to call to task the Islamists who are waging ethnic cleansing and genocide against Christians all across the Middle East.

Italian journalist Giulio Meotti observed that the Catholic Church is pushing for the creation of a Palestinian state that “would be the first state after the Nazi Germany to officially ban the Jews and expel the remnant of its Christians.”

These churches would do well to remember God’s promise to Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.” (Genesis 12:3 NASB)

Finally, have you ever wondered how two people can see the exact same event or incident and come away with utterly opposite interpretations? The answer is that they see things in different contexts.

Individual events are like the millions of dots that form the television picture you watch. We can make sense of them only by seeing them in the larger context. Then they coalesce to form a single image.

We make sense of the individual events by seeing them in the larger context. Where do we get that context?

It starts with parents, then moves to friends, schools, and the various media, among other contributing factors.

As early as six years ago, The New York Times cited a Kaiser Family Foundation study that warned: “The average young American now spends practically every waking minute — except for time in school — using a smart phone, computer, television or other electronic device.”

That was six years ago! Imagine how much truer that is today!

Young lives are literally saturated with messages from school and the media. These two activities fill their days and their minds. Those two institutions — school and media — provide the context within which the young will see the world. And, with few exceptions, the messages from school and the media stand in direct and firm opposition to the God of the Bible.

On this week’s program, I want to discuss with you how Satan is the power behind the “atmosphere of thought” in the world system Before we believe in Jesus Christ and are born spiritually, we are unwittingly dominated by this atmosphere.

Satan rules the thoughts of the world system. He injects his venom into education, philosophy, mass media, the arts, style, and culture. And he will use a lake of truth to disguise a pint of poison.

His deceptions about life and its purpose are lethal. He bombards us with his worldview everyday using entertainment, education, and even some churches.

That is why it is critical that you understand the difference between approaching life from the Human Viewpoint or the Divine Viewpoint. One leads to life and victory. The other leads to struggle, disappointment, and even eternal loss.

Tune in this week to see if you are taking full advantage of the Divine Viewpoint in your life and successfully remaining in full fellowship with your Redeemer.
