                                         2017 GLOBAL FORECAST UPDATE



                                                                                             DECEMBER 2017
Isaiah 21:6
For this has YHWH said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees
Isaiah 33:7
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.
Two thousand seventeen has come to an end. We have seen many things in the headlines and shared this information with the readers of our report. However, we must remember that not everything written in headlines is always all true. Many times headlines are used to herd the unsuspecting masses through confusion and fear. Our forecast was not created to ignite confusion or fear. It was compiled because of a sense of duty. The entire teaching of the universal law can be summed up as: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Clearly, anyone who has the inkling to want to protect their life (physical and spirit) would want to be warned of issues that pose dangers. Whether the danger is ready to strike within the next 5 minutes, or if it is rolling around the corner ready to strike within the next couple of months, or years we want to know. Danger is danger. Preparation will make the difference between how severely one may be impacted by the eminent danger that looms around our planet. If only one percent of our readers who have followed this forecast have taken a spiritual inventory of what changes need to be made in order to draw closer to the only Source of life and have actually taken steps to make those changes – then we have succeeded. If only one percent of our readers have begun making physical preparations for a rough road ahead, to ensure that they, and their families, will continue to have the necessities in life, then we have succeeded. If, instead of believing everything the powers that be want us to believe, our readers begin to question and search out the answers for themselves, then we have succeeded. The object was never to draw attention to ourselves. Additionally, it would never be our position, or intention to demonize any person, country, culture, or government. Part of our mission is to watch for world signs and events, and then, to point others to the sources so that each one can judge for themselves in order to wake up to the times we are living in. 
So here it is, one final time for 2017 the trouble areas that we said to pay close attention to in our 2017 Global Forecast since January 2017. We have said, and you have seen much of it come to pass:

  • Donald Trump doesn’t make it through a full term of his presidency
  • We continue to see an increase in the amount of record natural disasters
  • We see a dramatic rise in sea levels
  • Great scandals continue to cause great men and women to step down. Some may even get arrested
  • Terror strikes around the globe continue for a while
  • The human population continues to become increasingly angry for a while
  • Increases in diseases continue, and “cures” are touted to be found to eradicate them
  • disruptions in travel continue
  • food shortages spread, before there is a so-called solution
  • Global financial unrest leads to a global currency reset
  • There is an extraterrestrial disclosure by major governments or undeniable sightings of our alien neighbors

Hosea 4:1-3 reads: “Hear the word of YHWH, O children of Israel, for YHWH has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of YHWH in the land; there is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. That is why your land dries up, and all who live therein waste away; the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens and even the fish of the sea are taken away.” It seems a bit sad that the animals suffer because humanity has been programed to now be unwilling to observe universal principles. If we were in the practice of following the universal teachings of love your neighbor as yourself and see the creation as our neighbor things would be a lot different. For example: the land would get her well needed rest every 7 years in terms of agricultural practices, rather than being stripped and depleted of her vital strength. Today, we as a people have thrown natures dynamic out of balance through our selfish and inconsiderate activities, and all who dwell upon the earth, air and seas suffer because of it. The time that those who keep the people in ignorance is almost over and we will see very clearly that we hurt ourselves when we hurt our neighbor. Below we see one of the results of a generation that has been programmed to be selfish and inconsiderate. (To read the articles copy and paste link into your browser):

                                               EARTHQUAKES IN PLACE AFTER PLACE
We have documented that earthquakes are increasing in magnitude and frequency today. Many holy books inform their readers that because of the actions of the people, the earth will be shaken and tremble. She is doing this in order to remove those elements that are destroying her. The problem is not with the common people, but rather those who are versed in dark understanding, those who cast darkness upon the earth by keeping the populous ignorant. Where there is darkness, it is hard to see evil deeds. However it is now coming to light. Upon seeing this trend that earthquakes are increasing in magnitude and frequency as we have published it would be wise to consider how a natural disaster may affect us in the regions of our countries, neighborhoods of our cities and homes that we live in and prepare accordingly. In December 2017 the USGS recorded 9,128 earthquakes. 969 were above a magnitude 4.0.  The following 34 did not all make the mainstream news in December, however they did register above a magnitude 5.5:

                                                   NATURAL WEATHER EMERGENCIES
The energy of water is somewhat paradoxical. It has the power to take lives, yet we cannot live without it. It is refreshing and is a liquid crystal. Yet, when amassed it can ravage the land and everything in its path with its fury.  In the book of Matthew, one of the greatest teachers of all time had so aligned Himself with the omnipotent principles of the universe that He was able to control, and subdue winds and water. This very same Teacher told His students that those who followed the path would perform works even greater than that. Imagine that. If you believe the promise of the Word, powers to subdue the wind and water could rightly belong to you. What would you do with such power? Certainly, it could be used to save many that perish in floods and other natural weather disasters such as we’re about to look at. There are forces who have not followed the right path of loving their neighbor as themselves and who have amassed the secret to manipulate many elements. Through these technologies, and the natural process, we have seen the intensification in uncharacteristic patterns in nature. Here are a few cases:

                                           ENVIRONMENTAL DISTRESS AND DISEASE
Deuteronomy 28: 58-62: 
“If you do not carefully observe and do all the words of the law, that are written in this book, in order that you may reverence this glorious and reverent Name: YHWH your Father, then YHWH will bring upon you and your descendants fearful plagues, harsh and prolong disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. He will also bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt which you were afraid of, and they will cling to you; Every other sickness and every other disaster, which is not written in this book of the law, YHWH will also bring upon you, until you are destroyed. You will then be left few in number…”
A great teacher named Yahshua command the wind and water. He also healed the sick from their maladies. What would you do with power to calm the torrent water? Likewise, imagine that you have so purified yourself that you are able to tap into the infinite powers of the universe. These powers would undoubtedly include the power to assist the earth, as well as, heal the human body. In the next section we will see an array of illnesses that our neighbors are suffering from, some of which pronouncing the name alone is enough to make one sick. Diseases such as Chikungunya, Dengue, and Cholera are doing their part to damage the well - being of many. If cleansing our thoughts, words, and actions would bestow upon us the power to heal many from their afflictions, would we do the work to cleanse the thoughts? In December we see a snapshot of an environment that needs to be healed:

                                                                    SIGNS OF THE TIMES 
The following section highlights other signs of our times. One of the things we wrote of for our readers to look out for this year was that an extraterrestrial disclosure by major governments or undeniable sightings of our alien neighbors. In this section we see the Department of Defense release a video of a UFO. This is most definitely a disclosure by a major government. We also see that on the same day a former Navy pilot describes seeing an object 'not from the Earth'. This is only the beginning of the disclosure that we said would be coming beginning this year.  We will soon have full disclosure that will affect all of our lives in one way or another in the very near future. There are other things in this section that will be affecting our lives as well such as the so called “new technology”.  This will likely be used to cast a false sense of advancement for the good, but will later show itself to be diabolical, at least in part.

                                                             GLOBAL ECONOMIC UNREST
Jeremiah 17:5:
This is what YHWH says: "Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from YHWH.”
History has seen its share of economic changes. The one economic currency that remains constant is the universal fruits of the Spirit. Putting our trust in the riches of men is like building a house on the sand. All it takes is a few high tides and the whole thing comes crashing down along with hopes and dreams. Developing the fruits of the Spirit guides us safely to peace in life and true prosperity even during troublous times. A high paying job on Wall Street can’t grant peace and security. When the wave of economic instability hits and that high paying job is lost, if the heart and soul have not been aligned with the principles of peace – peace of mind is washed away with the job. After an economic meltdown, we saw Venezuela’s President Maduro announce crypto-currency backed by oil, gas, gold, and diamond reserve. This is to cast the façade that he wants to remove his country from a global banking cartel that is fighting for control the world. Very soon we will see more nations in economic problems than we currently see. Afterwards all the problems being created will be put to rest to deceive the people into trusting in a system that is soon to be revealed. Below we see the bite of an economy that is being worked to fail in order to set up new global system:

                                                              GLOBAL SOCIAL UNREST
With all the anger being expressed by people today it seems as though the people as well as their governments of the world have gone mad. People want to break free from what they feel are oppressive government’s control and governments are trying to figure out how to keep the people under their control. This will likely boil to many heads as the wrath of YHWH is at hand (Revelation 11:18), in which the governments of this world are taken away and given to those who will bring forth the fruit to replenish the earth (Daniel 7:26-27; Revelation 11:15). This doesn’t take place overnight. In fact, before it is set up there will be a false flag savior (Revelation 6:2), who is currently on the scene (2 Thessalonians 2:3) and working through a global overseeing organization who will soon seem to deliver hope to all humanity. We tend to call this YHWH’s enemy but YHWH has commissioned the spirits who are leading the nations to His judgment (Zachariah 6:1-5, 8; Revelation 16:13-14). In any event the headlines below show a part of the chaos that will be quieted in order to establish this global agenda:

        POWERFUL PEOPLE ROCKED BY PUBLIC SCANDALS, LOSE POWER, SOME THEIR LIVES 
Leading from the aspect of taking the roll of a servant is a marvelous term used to delineate a leader who doesn’t lord over others, sitting behind a desk and barking orders, but rather, leads through service to others. There have been servant leaders in the earth before. There was at least one that told his followers that he did not come to be served, but to serve. This same servant leader told His followers that the greatest among them will be the one who is able to serve others best. He also left that example for them to follow, and this attitude is most beneficial for us too. If the powerful people of this world were willing to lead from a leadership positions led in a spirit of: patience, being forgiving, honesty, and humility there would be little, or, no reason for them to fall, save it was part of the plan for their further spiritual development. Spiritually speaking pride comes before the fall. Today we are seeing many people who for one reason or another, directly or indirectly, find themselves influenced by a judgment of balance that is being manifested as a result of an unseen war. This war is no doubt displacing many world leaders and they are in turn sacrificing their pawns and other who may be able to implicate them in various ways. Many are resigning as a better choice than jail. Below we see the evidence of this:

                                                      DISRUPTIONS IN TRANSPORTATION
December, well known as a festive time of travel for families and friends to reunite, saw its share of deadly crashes both in the air and on the ground. Many would hope for safe travel for themselves, as well as their loved ones, but it seems like more than hope is needed in this day and age. The Earth is going through many changes as a result of these changes many electronic devices are failing. Some of these devices control a large majority of our transportation systems. We’ve said repeatedly what we’ve seen in the holy writings, and it is no different here. In order to have any true degree of safety we must look beyond ourselves to something that is greater than ourselves. Our Source is faithful to protect those who put their trust in Him. Putting our trust in the Father of Creation is not merely praying and hoping for the best. It’s trusting in His inspired teachings to practice them with sincerity and truth. Then we can have true confidence that whether we are in the air, on the ground, or the sea, we will not put down the physical body while in our immoralities. The following headlines show some narrow misses of disaster, and some that did not miss:
