Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-9-23: Another Two-fer: War Cry & Two Financial Bombshells Looming

Sometimes there’s so much going on that it’s difficult to keep up with all the prophetic events happening both in plain sight and behind the curtains of media censorship.  To that end, to cover the issues that are important in these final days, I often find it a lot easier to write a shorter Commentary than a longer one.  That’s how I’m approaching today’s Prophecy Update with two separate and very necessary discussions that were initially created for my weekly Biblical Audio Commentary.

The first is titled War Cry, which addresses the persistent efforts in the world to bring about World War 3.  The second deals with what I call the Two Financial Bombshells Looming – the latest attempts to completely lock up the world’s economic systems.  I do have some reference links for the things I discuss, but in this case, they are embedded in the Transcript on my website blog, not on the Rumble page as usual.

We’ll take a look at these issues momentarily.  First, let’s pray then read from God’s Word.






James 4:1-2

What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.


Proverbs 16:16

How much better to get wisdom than gold!
To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.



War Cry


  • One of the most difficult concepts to grasp – even in these end-times – is that the global elites and their Deep State sycophants actually want
  • That has become apparent to a lot of folks in the last year and a half with the increasing agitation against Russia and the sending of armaments to Ukraine.
  • And not just any armaments.
  • No, the US is depleting its stores of weapons so as to make us vulnerable, while at the same time providing munitions in the form of cluster bombs that have been banned by many nations.
  • Search throughout the Biden Administration, the halls of Congress, and the Federal Bureaucracy, and you’ll find few people if any of those positions of power who have called for an end of hostilities or made any attempt to bring about an end to this war.
  • These positions are filled with warmongers who are doing everything possible to cause Russia to strike with nuclear weapons and begin World War 3, with the express purpose of causing America to be a major actor in this deadly conflict.
  • Why?
  • Because they want to bring America down so we are no longer a power broker and factor in the world.
  • Why?
  • To facilitate a One World Government that cannot be achieved with America being prominent among nations.


  • The question is: Do you think this is unique at this particular point in history?


  • If so, then you haven’t been paying attention of late as to how a number of us have pointed out the fact that this is something that’s been going on for a long time.


  • I want to give you one critical example.


  • One of the reasons I was canceled from a major Rapture-oriented website was my discussion surrounding 9-11.
  • For years I had dismissed the idea that the attack on the World Trade Centers was anything but Islamic-initiated and carried out.
  • When I began diving into the extensive evidence that contradicted my initial belief, I found it highly credible and – yes – became what’s become known as a 9-11 Truther.
  • I’ve not labeled myself that, but given my position on the issue, that’s certainly what I am in this regard.


  • So, let’s look at this subject from the war angle I’ve introduced today.


  • My wife and I liked George W. Bush.
  • He appeared to be honest and forthright, and an all-around good guy.
  • As with all Republican presidents, he was attacked mercilessly from the Left.
  • No surprise there.
  • You may recall that when 9-11 began and the planes struck the Twin Towers, Bush was speaking or reading to a group of young children in a school.
  • An aide came up to him, whispered in his ear, and he excused himself to go deal with this emergency situation.
  • He was even mocked for the optics in this circumstance.


  • In addressing the 9-11 issue when speaking to the nation, the one thing President Bush said repeatedly didn’t make any sense.
  • He declared that Islam was a religion of peace.
  • For anyone who has studied Islam to any extent and come to understand the Qur’an – which I have – that statement by Bush absolutely contradicted all known facts about it.
  • FYI – You can see how I deal with Islam in my fiction books in the Whirlwind Series, specifically beginning with my novel Sow the Wind
  • Some years before in the Holy Land Trial, the Muslim Brotherhood was shown to be a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of America.
  • As was also seen, Osama bin Laden wasn’t particularly fond of the US and, like the Brotherhood, strictly followed the tenets of Islam as laid out by Muhammed in the Qur’an and the Hadiths, which lend religious validation and support to its doctrine of violent jihad.
  • It’s very clear in these original sources that Islam IS NOT a religion of peace.
  • Yet, Bush continued to say that.
  • Why?
  • Despite parodies from the Left, he is not a stupid man.
  • The reality is that he is a globalist like his father, and that requires certain allegiances and actions to a higher authority.


  • In the years quickly following this attack, one of the strangest things occurred.
  • Everything that was available and had been taught to the military and America’s law enforcement agencies about Islam was eradicated.
  • Experts who had previously briefed the Pentagon and FBI were censored.
  • Whistleblowers like Philip Haney who wrote the book, See Something, Say Nothing, eventually ended up in a very suspicious death – supposedly a suicide, and we should certainly know by now that an awful lot of these are actually homicides.
  • Just ask Jeffrey Epstein.
  • It turned out that even a member of the Muslim Brotherhood – a terrorist by the name of Kifah Mustapha – was brought into the government’s National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) in an advisory position.
  • Nothing to see in all this.
  • Just move along.


  • What did the US do in response to the 9-11 attack?
  • We went to war against bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in Iraq and then Afghanistan.
  • But, as we conducted that war, the idea that Islam – with its hostile and destructive doctrines was an integral aspect of what we were fighting – wasn’t permitted to be part of the strategic war doctrine.
  • Islam with its concept of jihad against the Christian West and Jews wasn’t allowed to be understood.
  • Why would we ever want to know what our enemy was thinking?
  • How useless is that – right?
  • After all, Islam was peaceful, so the religion of our opponents had nothing to do with how they acted.
  • And what did this set us up for?
  • Why, a twenty-year War on Terror, whatever that was.
  • In the same vein, have we ever won the 50-year War on Drugs?
  • It’s all more of the same.


  • What does this have to do with 9-11 Truthing?
  • Our deliberate ignorance of Islam that I’ve briefly recounted, paved the way for this seemingly endless war that – oh, by the way – profited the defense industry immensely.
  • Who might want such profits?
  • How about the global elites with their untold wealth that’s never enough, i.e. those who guide the not-so-invisible hand of capitalism?
  • I wish Adam Smith had been right, but there is a very highly placed cabal that guides the course of the world – not the unseen and unmanipulated force of the markets.
  • How about this for a conspiracy theory?
  • Perhaps they might have had a hand in this setup – just as they have for all the 20th century – so that they have a never-ending stream of income from the various wars?


  • If this is the case – and I believe it is – then maybe, just maybe, it was the global elites who were actually behind 9-11.
  • If they were, then that would begin to explain the many anomalies that came out in the aftermath of this shocking event.
  • A few of these among many are notable.
  • Remember Tower 7 that went down?
  • Do you recall that it wasn’t hit by any planes and only fell later in the day?
  • Its destruction inexplicably mirrored planned demolitions that videos show from other cities with other buildings.
  • How is that possible?
  • Even more incriminating is the fact that the two Towers that went down that morning likewise fell exactly like buildings in other locales that had been purposely destroyed with planned and well-placed explosives.
  • But, of course, there’s nothing suspicious about that.


  • Add to this the many strange facts concerning the in-flight reporting of the supposed hijackings, i.e. the phone calls that couldn’t have been placed at the altitudes of the planes, and the odd statements by the flight attendants that didn’t seem to exhibit any cause for concern.


  • One of many other anomalies was how these planes made of aluminum – which flying birds can dent – were somehow resistant to the concrete and hardened steel beams of the Towers so that they apparently cut through like butter to the other side.


  • Is it possible that this was all planned by someone other than a bunch of Muslim fanatics who couldn’t even pass their flight tests on small-engine planes, yet were able to fly a precision course into these two Towers and the Pentagon?


  • What if the global elites were behind all this and used whomever – our CIA, FBI, military, you name it – as pawns to accomplish this major incident?
  • What if the Muslim radicals were framed as the perpetrators of this atrocity?
  • Don’t get me wrong
  • Islam has plenty of problems and violence to answer for – maybe just not this incident directly
  • Oh, just so you know: a couple of these Muslim guys who were identified as the culprits were later shown definitively to be alive and well in such places as Saudi Arabia.
  • How does that work?
  • What if this was the means by which the CIA could funnel money to the Islamic groups to stage their jihad against the Great Satan and the Little Satan – America and Israel?
  • Why would they do that?
  • Because our government is not owned and directed by We the People.
  • It has been under the control of global elites and the sycophantic Deep State, i.e. the hidden Communist infrastructure, for 100 years – just as William Wirt and Whittaker Chambers tried to convey in the 1930s, as I noted in a prior Commentary, and as Senator Joe McCarthy attempted in the 1950s.
  • You know the stain of the label McCarthyism.
  • Communists under every bed, they mocked, how ridiculous!
  • Except that it was literally true given the extent of the Communist infiltration in Washington, DC and other corridors of power and influence in our nation
  • Pssst! – I have a secret to tell you . . .
  • They’re still there and in control.
  • The anti-anti-Communists – in other words, the Communists themselves – are great at ad hominem attacks, i.e. smearing people and destroying their reputations
  • We’ve been seeing that since 2016 with President Trump and those who supported him in various ways


  • Add all this up and you have exactly what George Orwell described in his dystopian novel 1984:


Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible . . . .


The Party said that Oceania had never been in alliance with Eurasia. He, Winston Smith, knew that Oceania had been in alliance with Eurasia as short a time as four years ago. But where did that knowledge exist? Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed -if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’.


  • Wars and rumors of war are necessary to create a state of perpetual fear and unending war.
  • It doesn’t matter who the enemy of the day is.
  • In the 20th Century it was the Nazis and the Soviets.
  • So far in the 21st Century it’s been the Islamic radicals, that aren’t really at war with us because they are – according to George W. Bush – a peaceful, religious people.
  • Lately it’s Russia, because Ukraine is a democracy that must be saved and no expense is too great to accomplish that.
  • Many in the neo-war group are also hoping to prod China into the mix as well.
  • Who are America’s allies?
  • Who are our enemies?
  • It doesn’t matter because the bottom line is that war pays well, and it’s a means to an end.


  • War is a great depopulation tool.
  • It kills people outright and creates the conditions for privation on a massive scale: famine, plague, etc.
  • Never forget the Georgia Guidestones and their 1st Commandment, which the globalists take very seriously:


Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.


  • This is more than a slogan.
  • It is an imperative.
  • Why?
  • Because when the year 2030 rolls around, the world needs to be in such a state of chaos that the stage is set for the unveiling of the Antichrist.
  • There is great purpose in war, just as there has been these last three years with the deadly COVID vaxx that is killing people left and right completely out of view of most of America and the world.


  • The evil behind all these very purposeful, destructive items, and the coordination behind them, comes from the rebellious spiritual realm.
  • Satan and his cohort are gearing up for their final attack on the Lord’s people and God Himself.
  • Bible prophecy tells us that the avalanche has been set in motion crashing downhill.
  • Look around; it’s bringing a whole lot of destruction in its wake.
  • It will not stop until it reaches the bottom regardless how many people think a Great Awakening will occur.
  • No, the birth pains have begun and their intensity and frequency have ratcheted up.
  • We’re almost there.


  • Despite all this gloom and doom, we as God’s people who trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord have the most optimistic, glorious future imaginable.
  • Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise with false doctrine and the prospect of a depressing future with the true church of today going into the Tribulation.
  • That’s not what God promises, and we need to keep our eyes on the Promiser.
  • He will deliver, just as He says, and soon we’ll be with Him.



Two Financial Bombshells Looming


Financial Bombshell #1


  • By now most people are aware of the coming CBDCs – the Central Bank Digital Currencies – that will eradicate physical cash and digitize everyone’s bank accounts.
  • We know that the effect of this will be to place complete oversight and management of how we receive and spend our money into the hands of the government.
  • This tsunami of financial change isn’t just an American phenomenon, all nations on the earth are in the process of implementing a CBDC in one form or another.
  • Rightly, those of us who view the world through a Biblical, prophetic lens see this as a precursor to, and integral aspect of, the coming Mark of the Beast with its control of all buying and selling predicated upon one’s worship of the Beast.


  • Our implementation in the US is well underway, having been officially launched July 22.
  • Here is a blurb concerning what’s known as FedNow:


The U.S. Federal Reserve is on the verge of launching “FedNow,” a long-anticipated service aimed at modernizing the country’s payment system. This service will enable ordinary Americans to send and receive funds in seconds, 24/7, eliminating the delays commonly associated with cash transfers. The move will bring the U.S. in line with other countries like the U.K., India, Brazil, and the European Union, which have had similar services for years. “FedNow” has been in development since 2019 and is expected to significantly improve the efficiency and accessibility of the payment system in the U.S.


  • I hate to break it to you if you haven’t heard of the latest developments in this financial arena, but the global elites pushing us toward this One World Order aren’t through yet.
  • Perhaps you’ve wondered as I did . . .


“The CBDC will enable the Deep State to regulate my bank account, i.e. they will know all that I do as to funds I receive and what I spend my money on – and they can decide whether or not I’m worthy in this regard through my social credit score to keep what I have; but what about the other financial assets that I own, such as real estate, stocks, pensions, IRAs, etc?  What happens with them under this CBDC system?”


  • The answer is nothing.


  • Recently a new term was unveiled, and if you understand how these developments work, by the time something is publicized, its implementation is well in progress.
  • This new concept – at least as far as the public is concerned – is given the non-descript name of Unified Ledger.


  • The idea is simple, although implementation will certainly be a challenge – but not at all undoable given the advanced state of technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • In a nutshell, with Unified Ledger, EVERYTHING you own – all assets of any kind that you have for which there is a public record and all private property – will be consolidated into a database entry with your name on it.


  • Your CBDC bank accounts would be rolled into this as starters.
  • But consider what else you own and/or maintain privately for which the government can find a record of any kind.
  • This would include property, houses, cryptocurrency, IRAs, pensions, stocks, cars, boats, etc. – likely even gold or silver you pay a custodial account to house and maintain.


  • Technically, according to Wikipedia,


“a ledger is a book or collection of accounts in which accounting transactions are recorded. Each account has: … a list of transactions, each recorded as either a debit or credit in separate columns (usually with a counter-entry on another page) and an ending or closing, or carry-forward, balance.”


  • So, as you can see, The Powers That Be which are devising this digital scheme, look at all your assets as simply entries in their book of accounts which they will control.
  • Nothing will be hidden from them.
  • If they believe it’s necessary to punish you for an infraction of some kind, they’ll be able to do so on any level of financial pain they desire.


  • Every asset is seen as a token in this scheme.
  • A token integrates all these records of assets with rules and logic that governs the transfer process of those assets.
  • Thus, each individual asset is tokenized and customized for each individual person’s bucket of assets.
  • This enables a fine level of granular detail controlled by if-then statements.
  • If J. Wellington Wimpy, a.k.a. Wimpy in the old Popeye cartoons, attempts to buy a hamburger after reaching his allotted number this month, then that triggers a red flag which prevents him from continuing the transaction.
  • Unfortunately, his promise: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” may be an empty one if his social credit score is lacking
  • If Gary in his 15-minute city has rented a car the allowable times this month (since he doesn’t own one and is exceedingly happy about that) and has used up all his available carbon credits, then his request for renting another vehicle will be declined, and perhaps it’ll be recommended to him that he ride a rental bicycle or walk because he’s not getting enough exercise.
  • The examples are endless, but the bottom line is the absolute control the State exercises upon all of us in every aspect of our lives.


  • The Unified Ledger – because of its all-encompassing nature, whereby all financial assets that everyone owns are kept digitally accounted for in one place where they can be programmatically manipulated – is the greater threat far beyond CBDCs.


  • Is there any means of escape from this dystopian world order?
  • Near-term it makes sense to withdraw from the financial system as we know it and hold physical gold or silver.
  • Understand: I’m not giving specific financial advice.
  • What I am doing is telling you what is coming and the only way I know of to avoid it.


  • This is the problem, and thankfully we who hold to a pre-Tribulation Rapture will not experience the complete end-game of those who are implementing this.
  • Because these changes are being put in place so rapidly, we may see and be affected by some of them.
  • However, the deadline goal for just about any of these Orwellian fantasies that are underway is 2030 – less than seven years from now.
  • I personally believe that is when the Tribulation will officially begin, because God will give the globalists and their spiritual masters exactly what they want – to their ultimate detriment.


  • Given the extreme probability of a several-year Gap between the Rapture and the Tribulation, we should be out of here well before 2030 rolls around.
  • This is obviously our long-term solution to this problem that the unbelieving world will face and be forced to suffer through.
  • I always tell people the Rapture is my long-term retirement plan


  • How much more will we be subject to in this financial arena, the sexual perversion, the chaotic lawlessness, and the depressing apostasy of God’s church?
  • Don’t we all wish we knew?


  • The one thing we can be assured of is that God will remove us at just the right time.
  • Our job in the meantime is to hold on tight, keep our eyes on the prize, and represent God’s kingdom in the ways He has orchestrated for each of us.



Financial Bombshell #2


  • Before ending this financial update, there is one other little publicized, or known, development that is on the horizon that you should know about.
  • By and large, the mainstream media, and even much of the financial press, has been ignoring what will likely cause significant disruption for America.
  • Of course, we know that is the intent of the globalists, so we shouldn’t be surprised.
  • America, from their perspective, must decline significantly in world stature and power.
  • What I’ll relate to you is very much in line with that.
  • (See Jim Rickards Strategic Intelligence Report – subscription only.)


  • Based on all the reporting that most people hear concerning the war in Ukraine, Russia is having its tail handed to them.
  • Admittedly, it’s difficult to get a true reading on the situation, but I’m of the opinion that Russia – despite massive loses – is doing just fine in comparison with Ukraine.
  • America has been depleting our armaments and are woefully short of munitions.
  • That’s part of the plan.
  • Should we directly become engaged in a hot war, we’ll have very little with which to defend ourselves.


  • One of the actions we took was to place heavy sanctions on Russia.
  • They’ve failed spectacularly because Russia’s trading with China and other nations took up the slack and more.


  • You may have heard the acronym relating to a group of nations known as the BRICS.
  • These are B-Brazil, R-Russia, I-India, C-China, and S-South Africa.
  • This is a financial consortium of what, outside of the US, are the largest economies in the world.
  • On August 22-23, 2023, these nations plus a number of others aspiring to join BRICS, will be meeting in South Africa.
  • All the primary leaders of these five major nations are supposed to be attending, although there is some question about Vladimir Putin because the International Criminal Court (ICC) has an arrest warrant out for him.
  • The blockbuster announcement BRICS will make is that they are rolling out a major new currency backed by gold that has the likely potential of greatly weakening the US Dollar now, and eventually displacing the Dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
  • This is a big deal.


  • Since I’m not a financial expert by any means, I won’t try to go into much detail here, but I’ll try to give a few broad-brush strokes.


  • The BRICS nations are already trading among themselves and avoiding the world’s main payment system known as SWIFT, since the US banned Russia from using it.
  • Not a problem because each of these nations was already using their native currencies with each other and not relying on the Dollar.
  • In the past, this would have possibly crushed Russia, but not now.


  • The issue of displacing the Dollar as the world’s reserve currency has been under discussion as a threat for many years.
  • The implication of this is that if the world doesn’t do business in Dollars, but in another currency, everything for us in America will become much more expensive – probably as much as 25-30% more expensive.
  • When I started following Porter Stansberry and his financial newsletter in 2010, he was warning of this possibility.
  • We’re almost there.


  • The obstacle to achieving this displacement is the fact that the US has a well-developed bond market.
  • When nations have financial surplus, they park their money in US Treasury securities.
  • Anyone keeping their money somewhere needs a place where there’s an adequate rule of law.
  • That couldn’t be said in the past about Russia or China.
  • No nations generally would take a chance on them holding their funds in securities.


  • This isn’t necessarily related, but the fact that the US is turning into a third-world banana republic with the rule of law thrown out the window, doesn’t help us any in this regard.


  • What BRICS will do is to bring other willing nations into their group and create a currency bond market.
  • Since their currency will be gold-backed with the corresponding store of value, there will be much greater security as those bonds are sold.
  • Each nation will encourage its citizens to buy these secure, gold-back bonds, and the market will take off.
  • Because the currency is pegged to gold, the value of gold will increase.


  • On the other hand, the US Dollar isn’t pegged to anything.
  • We just print money out of thin air.
  • If you had the choice, which of these financial instruments going forward would you invest in?


  • This radical development has the potential to bring about the upheaval of the international monetary system in a matter of weeks.
  • America is on its downward trajectory just as the Bible shows us through the fact that we are not an end-times player – and cannot be – in order for the world to come under the control of Antichrist and his One World Order.


  • As noted earlier, for the time we have left, it’s a prudent move to acquire physical gold or silver to keep your funds intact and away from the clutches of those who would control every aspect of your life.


  • Of course, we don’t place our trust in precious metals, we place it the One who saves our souls and delivers us from the wrath to come.
  • Thank God for His mercy that we have His promise and timely deliverance from all that will soon happen upon this earth.

    Thank you, Gary, for your Hammer of Truth that is nailing every single troubling issue of our times…

    A breath of fresh air in re. 9/11!!
    I watched the movie “Loose Change” almost 20 years ago. That’s how I found out the truth behind 9/11.
    I believe the rapture is very close. With the 7 wks of Daniel about to begin! Then 2030 (which is exactly 2K years from Jesus’ resurrection!) will be HIS return (with us behind him!! yayayaya)

    Hi Gary, another excellent article. I agree with your assessment of 911. I’m an engineer and can tell you that I was suspicious of the way all the buildings fell, especially #7. I remain very suspicious. I don’t know which rapture website you were cancelled from but similar perspectives, as well as others, garnered me a not so subtle response from many in the forums that didn’t believe that it was the appropriate place to forward such thoughts, to include the so called vax’s. The message was clear that, after several years of contributing with thoughtfulness and respect, I wasn’t welcome any more. The globies play the long game and there’s rarely one definitive, stand alone act that points the finger back to them. Rather one must look at the whole of their doings to get the clear picture and connect the dots; not just to see what they are really up to, but rather how it all, in whole, plays into end times Bible prophecy. Please keep publishing your content and do what you’re doing. God bless!!!

    • Reply Gary Ritter

      Sorry it took me so long to approve this; I somehow missed that it was pending. The more this kinds of things happen, e.g. the Maui fires, the more it becomes apparent that there are terribly evil and destructive forces operating at the highest levels in our government. We are not a government Of the People and by the People, if we ever were. The idea and ideals of our founding are incredible and good, but they’ve been undermined for a long time, with most of us being completely oblivious. It’s distressing and sad, so thank God that we have His promise of a soon deliverance!
