Will You Survive 9-11-2015?
Looking Forward to 9-11-2015
Has America crossed the line? Has God removed His protection from this Christian nation?
On 9-11-2001 an event occurred that shook not only this nation but also the world. The twin towers in New York were destroyed in a matter of hours.The Pentagon was attacked, and it's also possible that the US Capitol was targeted in a failed attempt.
This lens will look at the events that have transpired since 9-11-2001 and looks forward into the future.
The Harbinger was written by Johnathan Cahn in 2012. It is classified as a fictional novel. It has become popular with both Christians and non-Christians. It had been found at the top of the New York Times best-seller list.
The Harbinger is a warning to America that unless the country repents and turns to the Lord, God’s judgment is imminent. America has rejected God in many ways. We, as a nation, will reap what we sow.
The Harbinger provides much of the basis for the thoughts that I present in this lens. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to delve further into possible future events.
I present all my thoughts and projections as possible scenarios only. I've long ago learned not to make any hard predictions - especially those that involve dates.
Year Of Jubilee
One of the premises of The Harbinger is that the Year of Jubilee coincided exactly with 9-11-2001. The Year of Jubilee occurs every seven years. In the seventh year, all debts are to be cancelled.
Of interest in this lens are the two Years of Jubilee that occur 7 and 14 years after 9-11-2001.. Those occur on 9-11-2008 and 9-11-2015. These dates are very important to America.
1. The Twin Towers 9-11-2001
The First Shaking
On September 11 2001 the Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda initiated a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks on the United States. The most significant of the attacks was the deliberate crashing of passenger jets into both the north and south towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Both towers collapsed within two hours, killing thousands of people.
There was an immediate impact on the world financial markets.In the aftermath of the attack, there were numerous declarations by our leaders that we would rebuild larger, stronger and taller. There was never a consideration of the event as a judgment of God on the nation.
2. Bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers 9-11-2008
The Second Shaking
On September 10, 2008, Lehman Brothers announced a loss of $3.9 billion and that they intended to sell off a majority stake in their investment-management business. This event set off the largest shaking of the world financial markets since the attack on the World Trade Center just 7 years before.
Eventually, Lehman filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with total debts of $613 billion against total assets of $639 billion. This was the largest bankruptcy in US history.
3. Worldwide Financial Collapse 9-11-2015?
The Third Shaking
Dates are important to the Islamic terrorist groups. We can be sure that the 9-11-2001 date was carefully chosen in advance by al-Qaeda. They are extremely patient. Each year, on the anniversary of 9-11, we can expect some sort of terrorist activity. They are certainly aware of the significance of the Year of Jubilee that occurs every seven years.
Over the years, al-Qaeda has had ample opportunity to smuggle numerous nuclear devices into our nation through the porous southern border with Mexico. While we are now more actively detecting radioactive material on our highways and transportation hubs, there are undoubtedly a number of rogue nuclear devices already present in the USA.
A coordinated nuclear attack could be conducted by a small number of private planes. They could be flown by suicide pilots or by remote control. The nuclear devices could then be detonated over some of our largest cities.
"The Day Of Islam" by Paul L Williams is a good reference book on the activity of Islamic terrorists in our nation.
The Day Of Islam
Prepare Or Avoid?
If 9-11-2015 starts out as a nuclear event, it could well be a simultaneous attack on a number of major cities such as Boston, New York, Washington DC, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. These are certainly cities to be avoided by at least 100 miles on that date.
Another possible attack could be a high altitude nuclear or non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse (commonly abbreviated EMP or NNEMP). An EMP or NNEMP at a high altitude would destroy much of the US military and civilian electronic systems. While the EMP would not necessarily kill a large portion of the population, the effect on electronics would be immediate and disastrous. It's quite possible that electricity and transportation would be disrupted for quite some time if either scenario occurs.
If you can even remotely believe that there could be an attack on the US on 9-11-2015, then there are a number of steps you could take to protect yourself and your family.
- The Bugout Bag. Prepare a Bag with food and water for three days, a list of your prescriptions as well as a supply of pills, your passport, and any irreplaceable items.
- Prepare Your Car. Keep your car in good condition and keep your gas tank full.
- Plan Your Escape. Make arrangements with friends in rural areas or remote locations to take you in if you show up without warning.
- Assume that all utilities will be down. That includes utilities, phone service, and GPS.
- Store enough survival food and water in your home to last up to three months. If you're forced to leave home, take as much of this food with you as you can load into your vehicle. Remember to take along your Bugout Bag.
- Potassium Iodine Pills. These are necessary if you have been exposed to radiation.
It might be an ideal time to plan to be out of the country on Friday 9-11-2015. A one week cruise would be nice - leaving a few days earlier. Coordinate with your neighbors to have them keep an eye on your place while you are gone.
We live about 30 miles from Washington DC - clearly in a danger zone. We have already made reservations to rent a lovely furnished apartment in the retiree-friendly town of Ajijic on Lake Chapala in Mexico for August, September and October of 2015. If nothing happens in the USA, then we go on as before. Otherwise, we'll be able to find plenty of locally grown food and there'll be enough money in a local bank in Ajijic to live on for a few years.
In The News
February 11, 2014: Iranian vessels sail for U.S. coast to protest U.S. military presence in the Persian Gulf (USA Today)
While many might joke about the size of the Iranian navy, there is a significant threat. Once we become complacent with the presence of Iranian warships located just 14 miles from our shores, there are some not so obvious threats lurking below the surface. When Iran possesses nuclear weapons (I consider this no longer an "if"), they will be able to bring in shipping container-sized ballistic missile launch vehicles on any commercial ship or freighter to just outside our boundaries. This scenario is right on schedule for 9-11-2015. Simultaneous EMP attacks on New York, Washington and Miami are becoming more likely.
