US influence diminishing; China fills the void in Latin America

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • Under Biden, U.S. Pushed Further Back in Latin America
  • “… U.S. influence has been diminishing in the continent.” — Martha Bárcena, former Mexican ambassador to the United States, The New York Times, June 9, 2022.
  • The odds of Biden’s new plan winning over Latin American countries — where China has already massively invested in building roads, railways, harbors, bridges and a host of other infrastructure and communications projects, with no questions asked on the environment, climate or “inclusivity” — are probably low. Even Biden administration officials do not seem to harbor any illusions about the new plan’s ability to change facts on the ground….
  • China also has another advantage: No regard for human rights or democracy. It is more than happy to invest in and trade with authoritarian dictatorships like itself.
  • “The U.S. is losing Latin America to China without putting up a fight, Ecuador’s ambassador to Washington told Axios.”

Hal Lindsay says every day it looks more like the times described in the Bible

Important Takeaways:

  • More Every Day, These Look Like The Times Described In The Bible
  • Forces from within are weakening the United States even as the world economy falters. Inflation is rising almost everywhere. The nations who once stood for human rights and dignity grow more and more willing to suppress rights in exchange for the promise of “peace and safety.” People are afraid.
  • The tribulation will be a time of judgments upon the earth. Those judgements will begin with the famous “four horsemen of the apocalypse.” Revelation 6:2 says, “And I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer.”
  • The desperation we see now is a prelude to the extreme desperation that will enable him to conquer the world with amazing ease.
  • But the era of peace, safety, and international cooperation will be brief. The underlying antagonisms will remain. For instance, Iran, Russia, and Turkey will still hate Israel. The arrival of the second horseman marks the removal of peace from the earth. It means war.
  • Next comes the black horse, destroying lives and economies with hyperinflation. Then arrives the pale horse, leaving death in its wake. And those are just the beginning of tribulation’s judgments.
  • It’s a good time to draw close to the Lord and His word, and to spread that word everywhere.
  • We stand remarkably close to the culmination of this age, and the beginning of something glorious.

After Kissinger says Ukraine needs to move toward negotiations: DC shifts to damage Control

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • DC shifts to damage control as Ukraine defense fades
  • Speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Los Angeles, Biden blamed Volodymyr Zelensky for allegedly not heeding American warnings about a Russian invasion:
  • President Biden and his top officials are now focused on damage control – warning Ukraine through proxies that it will have to sacrifice territory for a ceasefire.
  • Kissinger told the World Economic Forum on May 23 that “movement towards negotiations and negotiations on peace need to begin in the next two months…[and] Ideally, the dividing line should return the status quo ante.”
  • The “status quo ante” implies that Ukraine will make territorial concessions to Russia—a phrase that Kissinger did not use.
  • One possible outcome that’s been floated in the American media and closely considered in Moscow is a Korean-style armistice, with an armistice line between East and West Ukraine but without a peace treaty.
  • An armistice would allow Ukraine to deny that it had given up claims on territory held by Russia.

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Biden Empowering an international compliance committee by giving authority to WHO

Revelation 13:7 “Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation”

Important Takeaways:

  • Is Joe Biden About to Give the World Health Organization Authority Over the US Government?
  • The World Health Organization’s 75th World Health Assembly meets in Geneva, Switzerland May 22-28 to vote on amendments from the Biden administration to the WHO’s International Health Regulations
  • The 13 pages of amendments certainly look as if they grant the WHO the right to tell the U.S. what to do in a pandemic.
  • They appear to allow the WHO to declare a pandemic emergency in the United States, require the US to report to an international “Compliance Committee” on whether it was obeying WHO directives, and would create an enforcement mechanism to essentially punish nations that don’t do what the WHO says.
  • Travis Weber, vice president for Policy and Government Affairs at the Family Research Council says even if the International Health Regulations had the force of a treaty, the U.S. Constitution would have the final say and not the WHO.
