Connect the Dots

We live in a world that gives us instant news. Modern news events come packaged with video then delivered to us via our favorite TV Channel or the Internet. This seems like a good thing, but is it? The problem is that there are almost always missing pieces of the story. The second problem is that there is usually some kind of “spin” on what happened so that the news fits the political agenda of the provider. In the USA that is either a left-leaning or a right-leaning slant. Most mainstream news has a left-leaning slant, so often one must watch two news programs to get a sense of what actually happened.

Years ago, I became good at connecting the dots to see the picture of what is happening or what was evolving. I fancied myself as being very good at conning the dots. I could also see between the dots(so to speak.) Now, I realize that my skills were more self affecting than grounded in reality. Why then does connecting the dots often miss the mark? It is because the average person is never presented with enough of the necessary dots to connect them in a meaningful way. A good dot connector must go beyond a single source of information. Moreover, those in charge of the dots can use them to mislead us. That being the case, I have removed myself from the honor roll at the Connect a Dot hall of fame.

Okay, dots aside, the message is to understand what is happening and why. Over the years, the CIA has done some brilliant work at keeping America safe. Sadly, the methods and motivations have driven them into an organization that created a self-fulfilling prophecy. It might best be described as a fight fire with fire scenario. However, the CIA is only one cog in a large complicated wheel, and it is not just about the CIA.

History is often ignored or misunderstood. Even those folks with a good grasp of the events of World War II don’t have all the dots from that war in their possession. It took years for the truth about some events to surface. The situation in Ukraine is a good example. On the surface, it looks like a cut-and-dried attack against Ukraine by the superpower Russia. Yes, that is happening, and the sad, but dramatic video emerging angers almost everybody, but what is the real backstory? It turns out there really is more to this story. The mainstream news is scrambling to tell the story, but the most interesting story is likely found in the historical record.

Ukraine is the top news story of the day, but is as cut and dried as it is being presented? I do not know, but I know that millions of people will suffer because of the hostilities. When the fighting is over many people will not return to their homeland. Some will be dead. Those left alive might not want to return to life in a new political reality. That is the most likely outcome.

Ukraine has for years been a pawn used by more than one superpower. In World War II Adolf Hitler influenced life there, but many, if not most of the people alive today probably do not (to any great extent) understand what happened. The young adults and the wide-eyed children running for their lives do not likely know the role Ukraine played in WWII. If you want an insight into the history of Ukraine then CLICK HERE, but beware, knowing it could cause Cognitive Dissonance.

What Is Cognitive Dissonance?
The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the mental discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes. People tend to seek consistency in their attitudes and perceptions, so this conflict causes feelings of unease or discomfort—even anger! https://www.verywellmind.com/what-is-cognitive-dissonance-2795012

The bottom line or end game for most people is to determine how to survive in a world that is fraught with many problems. Some of the problems can affect whether we live or die. Consequently, that causes anxiety. We want to connect the dots and create a picture of what is happening to avoid what will reduce our enjoyment of life or worse. If we can’t trust the dots, what can we trust? Information that is becoming clear now shows that the US president (Joe Biden) put the USA in peril when he rushed to nullify what his predecessor had put in place. One of those things was an oil pipeline that would have ensured energy independence for the USA. Now that is no longer an option in the current crisis, and since energy in the form of oil is part of the equation of the war in Ukraine the lone action of Joe Biden is now in clear focus. It is a disaster.

People who know what is written in the Scriptures of our Creator take comfort, in knowing the master plan for the planet. The Bible contains information about the end game. It also contains “tips” for surviving until the promise of the “GOD” of the Bible is fulfilled. Christians and other people who understand the Bible have a basis to understand the daily news and how to survive what is coming. It takes an effort and commitment to know how to prevail in a world that has become dangerous and complicated.

Putin calls Donald Trump

The following article is unverified by Yah’s Assembly. Consequently, it should be considered as commentary. However, if it is true then it would explain why the world is standing on the sidelines and not coming to the defense of the Ukrainian people. It further explains why the live reporting from Ukraine does include images of a sky full of US fighter jets enforcing a no-fly zone over Ukraine. It is worth mentioning that no matter what, the news presented by the mainstream wholly-owned news channels is at best incomplete. Moreover, they control the narrative. The important issues are never presented. The Internet is the best place for real news, but it also contains fake items so it takes an effort to discover what is really happening in the world. Real Raw News posts articles that are often outside of mainstream thinking. This could be one of them.

Attention: this news is VERY IMPORTANT because it can explain the true meaning of the Russian intervention in Ukraine.

Confirming the many rumors that have circulated these days through Telegram channels such as Simon Parkes, the military intelligence website Real Raw News published a few minutes ago that Putin has called Donald Trump on several occasions since the invasion began, to inform him details of the course of operations.

Yesterday, Thursday, he stated – always according to Real Raw News – that his troops had already destroyed 13 biological weapons laboratories throughout Ukraine, some of them underground, which is why they had to carry out several explosions to kill them. destroyed. Putin has information that the US Health Institute, the French Health Institute, and the German Infectious Diseases Research Center have contributed billions from the taxpayers of those countries to Ukraine, to develop biological weapons, and that President Zelensky himself has taken a part in bribes. Putin has promised to show evidence of what he says in due course of him. (My followers on Telegram will remember that on Wednesday a Ukrainian deputy accused President Zelensky of having a millionaire account in the tax haven of Costa Rica, which fits perfectly).

Putin told Trump that he has been warning Zelensky since February 2020 that if he didn’t dismantle those labs, he would do it himself, so he alone is to blame for what is happening.

Surely some of you have read that yesterday the Russian army took a small island belonging to Ukraine in the Black Sea, called Snake Island. Well, according to Putin’s information collected by Real Raw News, on that island the Israeli Mossad was developing a devastating biological weapon that would spread through the air (by chemtrails, of course), which would kill 100% of those affected. Always according to this chronicle, the version that has been circulating that the inhabitants of the island sent the Russian sailors who went to take the island to hell is true. After verifying that they did not want to give up the island/laboratory they guarded, the ship Slava began a bombardment of the island that annihilated all the guardians.

From the Chronicle, it appears that the Russian navy used thermal weapons since Putin told Trump that they verified that the biological weapons had been completely destroyed.

Finally, Putin assures that they are only firing at military targets and, in fact, no residential building has been affected in Kyiv and the power has not even gone out.

So now we all know clearly what Mr. Putin is doing in Ukraine: SAVE HUMANITY. Literally.

How the Vatican created Islam

By Alberto Rivera | cloakanddagger.de

How the Vatican created Islam. The astonishing story from an ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, was told to him by Cardinal Bea while he was at the Vatican.

“The Destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem” by Nicolas Poussin (1637)

This information came from Alberto Rivera, a former Jesuit priest after his conversion to Protestant Christianity. It is excerpted from “The Prophet,” published by Chick Publications, PO Box 661, Chino CA 91708. Since its publication, after several unsuccessful attempts on his life, he died suddenly from food poisoning. His testimony should not be silenced. Dr. Rivera speaks to us still …

“What I’m going to tell you is what I learned in secret briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and induction. A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third century. Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city.

“The great untapped source of manpower that could do this job was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell victim to one of the most clever plans ever devised by the powers of darkness. Early Christians went everywhere with the gospel setting up small churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman government persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their spread. But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 AD, Roman armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the great Jewish temple which was the heart of Jewish worship…in fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy in Matthew 24:2.

“On this holy placed today where the temple once stood, the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands as Islam’s second most holy place. Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption, apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion, and rebellion were eating at the Roman Empire, and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against Christians was useless as they continued to lay down their lives for the gospel of Christ.

“The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a counterfeit “Christian” religion to destroy the work of God. The solution was in Rome. Their religion had come from ancient Babylon and all it needed was a face-lift. This didn’t happen overnight, but began in the writings of the ‘early church fathers’.

“It was through their writings that a new religion would take shape. The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually called St. Peter, and the statue of Venus was changed to the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for its headquarters was on one of the seven hills called ‘Vaticanus’, the place of the diving serpent where the Satanic temple of Janus stood.

“The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth’- Revelation 17:5. She was raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establishes religions, creates wars, and make the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as we will see.

“Three major religions have one thing in common – each has a holy place where they look for guidance. Roman Catholicism looks to the Vatican as the Holy City. The Jews look to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and the Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each group believes that they receive certain types of blessings for the rest of their lives for visiting their holy place. In the beginning, Arab visitors would bring gifts to the ‘House of God’, and the keepers of the Kaaba were gracious to all who came. Some brought their idols and, not wanting to offend these people, their idols were placed inside the sanctuary. It is said that the Jews looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle of the Lord with veneration until it became polluted with idols.

“In a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam) the treasure of the Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down the well and it was filled with sand – it disappeared. Many years later Adb Al-Muttalib was given visions telling him where to find the well and its treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad. Before this time, Augustine became the bishop of North Africa and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including whole tribes. It was among these Arab converts to Catholicism that the concept of looking for an Arab prophet developed.

“Muhammad’s father died from illness and sons born to great Arab families in places like Mecca were sent into the desert to be suckled and weaned and spend some of their childhood with Bedouin tribes for training and to avoid the plagues in the cities.

“After his mother and grandfather also died, Muhammad was with his uncle when a Roman Catholic monk learned of his identity and said, “Take your brother’s son back to his country and guard him against the Jews, for by God, if they see him and know of him that which I know, they will construe evil against him. Great things are in store for this brother’s son of yours.”

“The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish persecutions at the hands of the followers of Muhammad. The Vatican desperately wanted Jerusalem because of its religious significance but was blocked by the Jews.

“Another problem was the true Christians in North Africa who preached the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in power, but would not tolerate opposition. Somehow the Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate both the Jews and the true Christian believers who refused to accept Roman Catholicism. Looking to North Africa, they saw the multitudes of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their dirty work. Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic and could be used in reporting information to leaders in Rome. Others were used in an underground spy network to carry out Rome’s master plan to control the great multitudes of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When ‘St Augustine’ appeared on the scene, he knew what was going on. His monasteries served as bases to seek out and destroy Bible manuscripts owned by true Christians.

“The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone they could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom they could train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating a mighty army that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope. In the Vatican briefing, Cardinal Bea told us this story:

‘A wealthy Arabian lady who was a faithful follower of the pope played a tremendous part in this drama. She was a widow named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the church and retired to a convent, but was given an assignment. She was to find a brilliant young man who could be used by the Vatican to create a new religion and become the messiah for the children of Ishmael. Khadijah had a cousin named Waraquah,, who was also a very faithful Roman Catholic and the Vatican placed him in a critical role as Muhammad’s advisor. He had a tremendous influence on Muhammad.

‘Teachers were sent to young Muhammad and he had intensive training. Muhammad studied the works of St. Augustine which prepared him for his “great calling.” The Vatican had Catholic Arabs across North Africa spread the story of a great one who was about to rise up among the people and be the chosen one of their God.

‘While Muhammad was being prepared, he was told that his enemies were the Jews and that the only true Christians were Roman Catholic. He was taught that others calling themselves Christians were actually wicked impostors and should be destroyed. Many Muslims believe this.

‘Muhammad began receiving “divine revelations” and his wife’s Catholic cousin Waraquah helped interpret them. From this came the Koran. In the fifth year of Muhammad’s mission, persecution came against his followers because they refused to worship the idols in the Kaaba.

‘Muhammad instructed some of them to flee to Abysinnia where Negus, the Roman Catholic king accepted them because Muhammad’s views on the virgin Mary were so close to Roman Catholic doctrine. These Muslims received protection from Catholic kings because of Muhammad’s revelations.

‘Muhammad later conquered Mecca and the Kaaba was cleared of idols. History proves that before Islam came into existence, the Sabeans in Arabia worshiped the moon god who was married to the sun god. They gave birth to three goddesses who were worshiped throughout the Arab world as “Daughters of Allah” An idol excavated at Hazor in Palestine in the 1950s shows Allah sitting on a throne with the crescent moon on his chest.

‘Muhammad claimed he had a vision from Allah and was told, “You are the messenger of Allah.” This began his career as a prophet and he received many messages. By the time Muhammad died, the religion of Islam was exploding. The nomadic Arab tribes were joining forces in the name of Allah and his prophet, Muhammad.

‘Some of Muhammad’s writings were placed in the Koran, others were never published. They are now in the hands of high ranking holy men (Ayatollahs) in the Islamic faith.’

“When Cardinal Bea shared with us in the Vatican, he said, these writings are guarded because they contain information that links the Vatican to the creation of Islam. Both sides have so much information on each other, that if exposed, it could create such a scandal that it would be a disaster for both religions.

“In their “holy” book, the Koran, Christ is regarded as only a prophet. If the pope was His representative on earth, then he also must be a prophet of God. This caused the followers of Muhammad to fear and respect the pope as another “holy man.”

“The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab generals permission to invade and conquer the nations of North Africa. The Vatican helped to finance the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange for three favors:

1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers,) which they called infidels.
2. Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics.
3. Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness” in the Vatican.

“As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous – Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised at their denial! The Arab generals had such military success that they could not be intimidated by the pope – nothing could stand in the way of their own plan.

“Under Waraquah’s direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham offered Ishmael as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac was the sacrifice, but Muhammad removed Isaac’s name and inserted Ishmael’s name. As a result of this and Muhammad’s vision, the faithful Muslims built a mosque, the Dome of the Rock, in Ishmael’s honor on the site of the Jewish temple that was destroyed in 70 AD. This made Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place in the Islam faith. How could they give such a sacred shrine to the pope without causing a revolt?

“The pope realized what they had created was out of control when he heard they were calling “His Holiness” an infidel. The Muslim generals were determined to conquer the world for Allah and now they turned toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked for papal bulls to give them permission to invade European countries.

“The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable. Temporal power and control of the world were considered the basic right of the pope. He wouldn’t think of sharing it with those whom he considered heathens.

“The pope raised up his armies and called them crusades to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing Catholic Europe. The crusades lasted centuries and Jerusalem slipped out of the pope’s hands.

“Turkey fell and Spain and Portugal were invaded by Islamic forces. In Portugal, they called a mountain village “Fatima” in honor of Muhammad’s daughter, never dreaming it would become world-famous.

“Years later when the Muslim armies were poised on the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, to invade Italy, there was a serious problem. The Islamic generals realized they were too far extended. It was time for peace talks. One of the negotiators was Francis of Assisi.

“As a result, the Muslims were allowed to occupy Turkey in a “Christian” world, and the Catholics were allowed to occupy Lebanon in the Arab world. It was also agreed that the Muslims could build mosques in Catholic countries without interference as long as Roman Catholicism could flourish in Arab countries.

“Cardinal Bea told us in Vatican briefings that both the Muslims and Roman Catholics agreed to block and destroy the efforts of their common enemy, Bible-believing Christian missionaries. Through these concordats, Satan blocked the children of Ishmael from a knowledge of Scripture and the truth.

“A light control was kept on Muslims from the Ayatollah down through the Islamic priests, nuns, and monks. The Vatican also engineers a campaign of hatred between the Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before this, they had co-existed peacefully.

“The Islamic community looks on the Bible-believing missionary as a devil who brings poison to the children of Allah. This explains years of ministry in those countries with little results.

“The next plan was to control Islam. In 1910, Portugal was going Socialistic. Red flags were appearing and the Catholic Church was facing a major problem. Increasing numbers were against the church.

“The Jesuits wanted Russia involved, and the location of this vision at Fatima could play a key part in pulling Islam to the Mother Church.

“In 1917, the Virgin appeared in Fatima. “The Mother of God” was a smashing success, playing to overflow crowds. As a result, the Socialists of Portugal suffered a major defeat.

“Roman Catholics worldwide began praying for the conversion of Russia and the Jesuits invented the Novenas to Fatima which they could perform throughout North Africa, spreading good public relations to the Muslim world. The Arabs thought they were honoring the daughter of Muhammad, which is what the Jesuits wanted them to believe.

“As a result of the vision of Fatima, Pope Pius XII ordered his Nazi army to crush Russia and the Orthodox religion and make Russia Roman Catholic.” A few years after he lost World war II, Pope Pius XII startled the world with his phony dancing sun vision to keep Fatima in the news. It was great religious show biz and the world swallowed it.

“Not surprisingly, Pope Pius was the only one to see this vision. As a result, a group of followers has grown into a Blue Army worldwide, totaling millions of faithful Roman Catholics ready to die for the blessed virgin.

“But we haven’t seen anything yet. The Jesuits have their Virgin Mary scheduled to appear four or five times in China, Russia, and major appearance in the U.S.

“What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop Sheen’s statement: “Our Lady’s appearances at Fatima marked the turning point in the history of the world’s 350 million Muslims. After the death of his daughter, Muhammad wrote that she “is the holiest of all women in Paradise, next to Mary.”

“He believed that the Virgin Mary chose to be known as Our Lady of Fatima as a sign and a pledge that the Muslims who believe in Christ’s virgin birth, will come to believe in His divinity.

“Bishop Sheen pointed out that the pilgrim virgin statues of Our Lady of Fatima were enthusiastically received by Muslims in Africa, India, and elsewhere, and that many Muslims are now coming into the Roman Catholic Church.”

In addition to well-documented biblical scripture, secular history of biblical events exists. When understood, it gives meaning and context to the scriptures.
