WE MUST CAREFULLY CONSIDER A NUMBER OF THINGS TO KNOW IF THE HORSEMEN
Porter Stansberry, founder and the managing director
of Stansberry & Associates, a Baltimore–based financial research firm talks strong and loud about big
trouble just ahead.
He says, "About 6 months ago, I produced
the first version of this presentation. It was an effort to warn people about what I believe is a very serious, impending
currency and debt crisis in America, that will radically change our way of life and upset the balance of power around the

I THINK STANSBERRY IS GIVING US WARNINGS WE NEED TO HEED, BUT, ALONG WITH OTHER IMPORTANT
WE MUST REALIZE THAT ONLY GOD HAS THE REAL ETERNAL
ANSWERS IN THE SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AND IN THE HOLY BIBLE.
consider the words of Woodrow Wilson and J. Edgar Hoover, with PSALM TWO BEING THE DETERMINING TRUTH.
That is - the determining truth that the real, actual, forces of evil, consisting of the "Kings of the
Earth," and their demon handlers (Rulers), are making a determined effort to throw off the sovereign rule of God, and
Psalm Two tells us this
is true. God WILL win, but things will get quite scary as things move to a climax.
I have a lengthier paper on this -- The Mother of All Conspiracies.
Porter Stansberry's position fits this
God revealed scenario, and is a part of it. All facets must be considered together.
Stansberry's view, of course, accords with those of a number of other careful, qualified, observers.
But, as he points out, it is obvious to us ordinary observers. The USA is spending and borrowing
itself into oblivion, over a cliff, and will drag the whole world into a catastrophic train wreck.
Also see my page, We Are Living in Daniel the Prophet's Fourth Kingdom.
|PSA 2 - The kings of the earth set themselves, the
|rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed. (They pervert Bibles too!)
The ride of the four horsemen is still future, but signs of the times are more and more ominous.
Psalm 2, which I discuss later, shows the "Kings of the Earth," and THEIR demonic handlers, "the
rulers," have been working hard to overthrow God and Christ for a long long time.
I believe, as do many bible students, the horseman's ride will be preceded by the Rapture of the true Church, as
Jesus Christ comes for his bride, to take her to his Father's house in heaven.
also my page Does the Book of Revelation show the Rapture of the Church? - Yes Rev 4:1.
I'm convinced, national and world events and conditions, show we are moving
rapidly to a climax.
I believe Jesus Christ is the ultimate Jewish Bridegroom
and is following Jewish betrothal, and marriage, protocols.
This provides VERY
STRONG reason to believe, along with other strong reasons, that Jesus will descend from heaven into earth's atmosphere
to take his bride to his father's house in heaven.
This is know as the
Rapture, or the Translation of the Church.
The New Testament book of 1Thessalonians
4:16-18 says: 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with
a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
"shout" in verse 16 was the traditional Jewish bridegroom, "shouting" his arrival at the bride's old home,
to take her to his Father's house for their honeymoon, called the "Huppah."
See the excellent
paper by Charles L. Monk, Behold the Bridegroom Comes for details.
Monk's article is really Great, and well worth reading!
Also, see, my similar article, The Bridegroom and the Rapture Question.
This congruity of Jesus Christ as ultimate, Jewish, Bridegroom is
so compelling, that along with much other evidence, many of us believe a seven year Huppah, for the bride and groom in heaven,
at his Father's house, will follow the Rapture.
The Bride is the collection of
all true believers in Jesus Christ, known collectively as the Church.
during this seven year period, unbelieving Israelites, who are not part of the Church, and all others, will undergo a severe
testing period, know as the Tribulation, down here on earth.
For Israel, this
is known as the Seventieth Week of Daniel, referring to the Old Testament book of Daniel.
Understanding the distinctiveness of Israel, versus the Church, in God's plan, is critical to all this.
It is explained in the New Testament, Romans chapters 9-11, especially chapter 11.
I will discuss this near the end of this paper.
Chuck Missler has videos explaining the 70th week of Daniel. Also, text article by Missler.
Other great works on 70th week: World of the Bible, Thomas Ice.
Daniel 9:24-27 (note - these
"weeks" are Sabbatical Weeks, seven years each, not seven days each, so 70 of these weeks equal 490 years):
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression,
and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal
up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah
the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be
cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the
end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he
shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate,
even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The prophesy is complex, but, it is clear that 69, 7 year weeks, 483 years, occur up to Messiah being "cut off,"
which means killed (he was crucified at Jerusalem).
There remains one remaining
7 year week, which involves, the Anti-Christ, termed, "prince that shall come."
The prophesy tells us the Anti-Christ will desecrate and cause to be desolate, the Holy Place, meaning, the Jewish
Temple. The Temple is to be rebuilt.
Jesus Christ mentions this prophesy
of Daniel in Matthew 24:15-16: 15 When ye therefore shall
see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea
flee into the mountains:
It is this "Abomination of Desolation"
that is occurring in 2Thessalonians chapter 2, with the Anti-Christ (Man of Sin) intruding into the Holy Place, in the future, rebuilt
Jewish Temple, claiming to be God:1Now we beseech
you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2That ye be not soon shaken in mind,
or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there
come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that
he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let,
until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall
that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of
9Even him, whose coming is after the working
of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved.
11And for this cause God shall send
them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath
from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord
15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and
hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given
us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
Note again verse 3 from the King
3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day
shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
The Greek word underlying "falling away" is apostasia and is also translated "forsake" in
Acts 21:21 (KJB) (Blue Letter Bible).In the Geneva Bible (1560/1599) the verse 3 reads:
3 Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there
come a departing first, and that the man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition,
Notice the Geneva Bible uses
"departing" in place of the King James Bible "falling away."
-- apostasia can mean "departure," as in departing from the true God, or, it could mean "departure"
of Christians from the Earth's surface in the Rapture.
I believe God can employ a word
in BOTH meanings simultaneously. He likely IS.
That is - Christians (the Church, the body of
Christ) must depart Earth, thus removing the thing that "withholdeth," (verse 6, both KJB and Geneva Bible.)
This allows the Man of Sin/Son of Perdition to be revealed AND the unholy departure from the true
God, apostasia, of the world, to proceed.
2 Thessalonians 2:6 And now ye know
what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. (both bibles)
This is further very
strong evidence and reasoning that the Rapture must precede the revealing of the man of sin. And the Tribulation period.
I believe, along with others, this Man of Sin/Son of Perdition, will have been revealed 3.5 years prior to this.
That is -- 3.5 years before the Abomination of Desolation in the new Temple (2 Thessalonians 2:3-6).
That is -- about 3.5 years after the Rapture.
So the Man of Sin may seem to
be a real great guy for 3.5 years.
But, then hoists up his true colors and --
-- "so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
He may have been acting as a wonderful world savior prior to showing
his true colors as the "Abomination of Desolation" (Jesus' words Matthew 24:15) and "Man of Sin/Son of Perdition,"
in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, above.
|Daniel the Prophet, in the Lion's Den
So, the Anti-Christ, the rider on the White Horse, should have some time -- many bible students think
3.5 years to seduce the world to his rule.
Then he will hoist up his true colors, and demand to
be worshiped as God in the Holy Place in the new Temple in Jerusalem.
Let me quote again from
2 Thessalonians 2:9-11: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working
of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved.
11And for this cause God shall send them
strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Notice that the Anti-Christ, the "Man
of Sin," will employ IMMENSE DECEPTION TO FOOL FOLKS. God will allow this!
Verse 11 says
that even God will send upon them "strong delusion," because they reject him and Jesus Christ.
the rider of the White Horse, will have perhaps 3.5 years to deceive people into thinking he is a great wonderful person with
terrific answers to our world's serious problems.
Now, Revelation 6, and the 4 horseman's ride is stlll
The Devil has lots of advance help, as Psalm Two plainly says, with the Kings
of the Earth, and their demonic handlers, the rulers, taking the most serious steps to cast off God's rule.
IS THUS, COMPLETELY REASONABLE TO SEE PORTER STANSBERRY'S MESSAGE AS A REAL, AND EXTREMELY SERIOUS WARNING. Again, it
must be matched up with other important evidences.
IT IS POSSIBLE HIS WARNING IS ONE OF THE LAST WE
WILL GET AND HAVE TIME TO ACT ON!
AS SAID BEFORE, HE IS JOINED BY OTHER EXPERTS IN HIS OPINION.
Ordinary folks see it too!
HE GIVES US SOME GOOD ADVICE AS TO WHAT WE MIGHT STILL DO TO PROTECT
I MUST MAKE VERY CLEAR THAT ONLY GOD, THROUGH THE SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST CAN REALLY SAVE US FROM
THE TROUBLES THAT ARE LIKELY TO BEFALL US, PERHAPS SOON.
I HAVE MANY PAGES LISTED
AT THIS SITE THAT CAN HELP YOU EMBRACE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR, SO YOU CAN GO TO HEAVEN.
I DOUBT THAT PORTER STANSBERRY IS A CHRISTIAN.
STILL, HE IS,
LIKELY, ALERTING US TO SERIOUS TROUBLE AHEAD.
AND HE MAY WELL HAVE ADVICE
TO GIVE US SOME TEMPORARY PROTECTION.
BUT ONLY GOD, AND HIS ANOINTED LORD AND
SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, CAN DELIVER US TO ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENS TO US IN THE HERE AND NOW!
I want to talk about the New Testament passage, Romans chapter 11.
is critical to understand that God has different purposes for Israel vs the Church.
also has great common purposes, especially in the future for both groups.
the earthly death of Jesus Christ, God began to work with gentile believers more and more.
Saint Paul (Apostle Paul) says, God broke off the natural branches (Israel) and grafted gentile believers into the same root.
Thus, he sets aside Israel, in favor of the largely gentile Church, during this
So the Church is said to be a great "parenthesis."
But God will in the future, I think, soon, remove the largely gentile Church from the earth, in the Rapture,
and will then resume his ancient program with Israel -- the 70th week of Daniel's great prophesy.
He will remove the wild branches, and graft the natural branches back into their natural root.
IT IS THE DISTINCTIVENESS OF THESE TWO GROUPS AND PURPOSES OF GOD THAT MAKES IT NECESSARY THAT THE CHURCH
BE REMOVED FROM THE PICTURE, BEFORE, GOD WILL RESUME HIS ANCIENT PROGRAM WITH ISRAEL!
THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH MUST OCCUR, BEFORE, THE GREAT TRIBULATION, DANIEL'S PROPHESIED 70TH WEEK of seven years, BEFORE
GOD WILL RESUME HIS ANCIENT PROGRAM WITH HIS OLD TESTAMENT PEOPLE ISRAEL!
Testament book of Romans chapter 11:1I say then, Hath God cast away
his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture
saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,
3Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek
4But what saith the answer of
God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election
6And if by grace, then is it
no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no
7What then? Israel hath not
obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
8(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes
that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
9And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence
10Let their eyes be darkened,
that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles,
for to provoke them to jealousy.
if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their
13For I speak to you Gentiles,
inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15For if the casting away of them be the
reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
16For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy,
so are the branches.
17And if some of the
branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root
and fatness of the olive tree;
not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20Well; because of unbelief they were broken
off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity;
but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for
God is able to graft them in again.
if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree:
how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest
ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be
26And so all Israel shall be saved:
as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching
the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.
the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also
may obtain mercy.
32For God hath concluded
them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

34For who hath known the mind of the
Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
As Psalm 2, below, shows, the Kings of the Earth and the Rulers, their demonic handlers are making a determined
effort to throw off God's rule from them.
See my Woodrow Wilson page for further comment:
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the
earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron;
thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now
therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest
he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust
