With, arguably, the most critical election in America’s history just days away, our current President, Barack Obama, may be on the verge of a test like few other world leaders have ever known. In fact, it may have already begun.

Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin shocked the world when he sent a naval task force toward Syria — through the English Channel! It was an obvious show of strength and belligerence against the West.

Seven Russian warships escorted Russia’s only aircraft carrier right through the famous Strait of Dover, within sight of the storied white cliffs.

By sending the carrier group to Syria, Putin is strengthening his presence in the Middle East. The Russian and American militaries are both active in Syria, but make no mistake, Russia is in charge.

The Russian task force joins warships from Russia’s Black Sea fleet that have been dispatched to the Mediterranean carrying nuclear-capable missiles.

Russia has also sent nuclear-capable Iskander-M missiles to the region bordering Poland and hundreds of paratroopers for military exercises in Egypt. They have suspended three separate nuclear agreements with the United States.

Last summer, President Putin warned journalists that “the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction.”

The Russians have also just completed a “nuclear war drill” that involved 40 million people practicing ways to survive atomic war.

Is Putin actually preparing for war with the United States? Is he sending a message to President Obama? How will the President handle increasing Russian aggression in the waning days of his administration?

That’s his big test.

But there’s an even bigger question. Why? Why is Putin testing Obama and why now?

Although President Obama is already considered a “lame duck” President — since he cannot serve another term — after Tuesday’s election, his lame duck status grows even more acute.

Is Putin testing Obama to see if he will wilt under the pressure of a nuclear ultimatum? And if Putin decides he will, then Obama and the United States may get a nuclear ultimatum, and probably before the end of the year.

It will be disguised as something else, but it will be real.

With this President, Putin may see an opportunity for a world-changing moment. He seems to be testing Obama’s resolve right now. If he fails the test, it may invite nuclear blackmail or even World War III.

In 1962, God used a profane, deceptive, and womanizing President to save civilization as we know it. His name was John F. Kennedy.

That moment of truth became known as the “Cuban Missile Crisis.”

At the time, most Americans understood that the U.S. and the Soviet Union were on the brink of nuclear war. We now know that they were closer than anyone at the time realized.

Information discovered after the collapse of the Soviet Union revealed that the commanders on the ground in Cuba already had battlefield nuclear weapons and were authorized to use them if necessary.

Some of Kennedy’s top military advisers encouraged him to make an all-out assault on the nascent Soviet military sites on the island. Had he done so, it would have triggered the use of those weapons and the nuclear dominoes would have fallen fast all over the world.

But for the hand of God in that crisis, you and I would probably not be here today.

We now know that the choices President Kennedy made in that critical time were influenced by a book called The Guns of August. It was Barbara Tuchman’s examination of the events and decisions that triggered World War I.

We also now know that Ms. Tuchman’s historical assertions were largely incorrect in that book, based on new information about Germany discovered in recent years.

However, even though her history was wrong, the lessons she taught were perfect for President Kennedy in 1962.

There was tremendous danger in showing weakness, so the President couldn’t let the Soviets establish nuclear launch platforms in Cuba. But in resisting the Soviets, he couldn’t let a mistake trigger a sequence of events that would have caused the world to descend into nuclear chaos.

So he took a middle ground and imposed a naval blockade of Cuba. Long story short, it worked.

God used an imperfect man and a history book with a flawed thesis to prevent a war that would have devastated the planet.

In the early 60s, Americans understood the nuclear threat and Christians prayed for Kennedy on a regular basis. When that book fell into his hands, it was an answer to prayer.

Even if you think a President — or other leader — is wrong on every issue, the Bible admonishes us to pray for that person. There is powerful evidence, both Biblical and historical, that God’s intention is for us to pray for our leaders so that we may lead “a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” (I Timothy 2:2 NASB)

In a few days, we will be given the opportunity to choose our next group of national, state, and local leaders. In our time, when the alternative to peace is so unthinkable, our incentive to pray doubles.

The Bible doesn’t say you have to approve of the leaders’ policies. It says, unequivocally, to pray for them. Pray that they will see the light where they are wrong and repent. Pray they will be given wisdom and good judgment. Don’t pray for the success of wrong or sinful policies, but do pray for the men and women who lead us.

Pray for the upcoming election. Pray that those elected will have an awareness of God; and that they will find good advisers with godly morals. Pray that God will send His Word into all their lives — now more than ever.

We have entered one of the most dangerous periods in world history. So vote! And pray!

Also on this week’s program, I will discuss the recent UNESCO resolution that denies Israel’s historic connection to the Temple Mount and the Wailing Wall!


As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed, “To say Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall is like saying that China has no connection to the Great Wall of China or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids!”

It appears obvious that UNESCO did this to appease Muslim extremists. In fact, UNESCO executive board members France, Greece, Italy, Spain, and Sweden all voted to “abstain.”

Have they no courage? No respect for history and the truth? Or the Christian Bible on which the best parts of their civilizations are built? Don’t they realize they are not just throwing away Jewish heritage, but the heritage of all Western nations?

The sad truth is that each of the abstaining countries has large, often violent, Muslim minorities and they don’t want to upset them.

Islamic powers within the United Nations, with help from many of the world’s elites (think George Soros and his ilk), are attempting to erase all connections between Jews and the Holy Land. Even worse, they are attempting to sever ties between Western civilization and its Judeo-Christian roots.

All of these events fit perfectly into the scenario for these final days described by the Bible’s ancient prophets.

Finally, on this week’s program I am going to continue my discussion of the Rapture of the Church. As I have noted previous, this future event is described in the Bible as the believer’s “blessed hope,” especially in view of the dangers exploding all around us.

I will focus on the differences between those believers who hold a “Pre-tribulation Rapture” viewpoint and those who hold to the “Post-tribulation Rapture” theory.

The Palestinians, Russia, the ACLU and When Evil is Called Good!!

November 13th, 2015
This week on ‘The Hal Lindsey Report’
Last month, the Palestinians once again firebombed Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem, Israel.

This is at least the 10th time in the last 30 years the Palestinians have tried to destroy the tomb. Now, Muslims claim to revere Joseph and hold his tomb to be sacred. So why do they frequently try to destroy it?

In Genesis, Joseph extracted a promise from his brothers that after his death they would carry his bones from Egypt back “…to the land which He [God] promised on oath to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob.” (Genesis 50:24-25 NASB)

Moses fulfilled that promise and Joshua 24:32 describes the burial of Joseph’s bones at Shechem.

So why are Muslims so bent on eradicating the memorial? Because the tomb is not just about Joseph. It is a monument to God’s faithfulness in fulfilling His promises to His people — especially promises regarding the land of Israel.

Joseph himself described Israel as “…the land which [God] promised on oath to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob.”

The tomb is physical proof that God keeps His word. That is why Muslims, who publicly claim to hold the site sacred, try to destroy it on a regular basis. It is a reminder to the world that God fulfills His promises to His people.

The new biography about President George Herbert Walker Bush describes his worries about a confrontation with the Soviet Union during the Gulf War. He felt that with so many countries involved, a showdown with the USSR might lead to a world war.

Fortunately, the Soviets decided to stay well out of the war with Saddam Hussein.

In light of President Bush’s fears, fast forward to today. Russian air forces and American air forces are patrolling and flying sorties in the same Syrian airspace.

The scary part is that many of the Russian enemies are our friends. Vladimir Putin is in Syria to prop up Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. We are there to support those who want to remove him.

So the two air forces fly in the same skies, but on opposite sides of the fight. That means that every day, U.S. airmen are flying on the razor’s edge of disaster.

And things have heated up since a Russian passenger jet was recently blown out of the skies over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. ISIS claims responsibility. Probably in retaliation for Russia’s air campaign against them in Syria.

A few weeks ago, I suggested that Putin was taking a big risk by entering Syria on behalf of the Shi’ite coalition led by Iran. That puts Russia in opposition to Sunni Muslims. And the Sunnis comprise 85% of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims. And many of those Sunnis take their fight against the Shi’ites very seriously.

So, it’s possible that Russia is facing a future filled with reprisals and sabotage. And that affects the whole world. Especially the world’s aviation community.

Already, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is instituting stricter controls in view of the Russian airliner bombing. And many experts are calling for greater global control of the air. Including steps like a global database containing information on every member of the flying public.

Remember, each step the world takes to establish the control apparatus the Antichrist will eventually need will seem logical, necessary, and wise. Just as the Bible prophets predicted.

Last week, voters in Houston, Texas, rejected HERO. That’s the “Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.” It was vigorously promoted by Houston’s openly lesbian mayor, Annise Parker. It was also endorsed and supported by Hillary Clinton.

Though the ordinance sounds quite innocent, even rather noble, one of the byproducts of it would have been the provision of access to restrooms and showers based on one’s “gender identification.” Not on the basis of ones actual gender. In other words, a man would be allowed to use the women’s restroom or shower facilities because he “felt” like a female.

Now, you may not believe it’s as simple as that, but it is in some places now and soon will be in many more places. Just ask Township High School, near Chicago.

The school has a boy who wants to be a girl. He still has all of his male body parts, but he says he feels like a girl. So he wants to use the girls’ facilities, including the showers.

I’m not making this up.

In an effort to accommodate him, the school district built a special changing room for him in the girls’ locker room. He even agreed to it. But the ACLU cried “foul.” Its lawyers declared that he must have full access to the girls’ locker room. The ACLU said that the changing room curtain amounted to “blatant discrimination.” It “sends a pretty strong signal to her (referring to the boy who wants to be a girl) that she’s not accepted and the district does not see her as a girl.”

I’ve got news for the ACLU: even science doesn’t see him as a girl.

And the bad news is, the federal government agrees. The Department of Education says that if the school district fails to comply and grant him full access to the girls’ locker room, the district will lose its federal funding. In fact, one of the Department’s officials called it a “basic civil right.”

The Bible says that God created “man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27 NASB) Male and female creation is a biological fact, essential for the survival of the species.

Transgender activists in the U.S. are frantically pushing the idea of “gender fluidity.” They say we should not accept firm distinctions between male and female. That means a person’s sex follows the whim of the moment — changing sexual identity according to impulse.

They are pushing “gender identification” to replace “gender fact.”

And now the federal government has taken an unambiguous stand in favor of sexual confusion and dysfunction. This monstrous idea will result in long-term damage to the psychological health and well-being of all students.

The Bible prophets predicted that in these last days, evil will increase exponentially. We know that as Satan exerts more control over this world’s system, the things that we know to be right will be called wrong, and the wrong will be called right. He will try to turn our values — even our common sense — upside down.

Today, we constantly see the “good” criticized and ridiculed and the “bad” praised and promoted. I believe that the push to “gender confusion” is one more step in Satan’s plan to destroy our nation.

The prophet Isaiah warned of these times. He said, “Woe unto those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness….” (Isaiah 5:20 NASB)

One of the great prophetic signs of the imminent return of Jesus Christ is the emergence of Satanic deceptions. These will primarily be in the form of counterfeit miracles, false prophets, and false messiahs. But I believe, too, that issues like “gender confusion” are destructive Satanic deceptions on a national scale.

We are undeniably in those last days.

On this week’s program, I’ll share more about these deceptions and tell you how to prepare yourself so that you will not be among the deceived.
