Bible Prophecy is becoming more and more a reality with each passing year regarding all that is happening in the world the closer we get to the end times. (See Matthew 24)
Jesus has a plethora of messages to us in Matthew 24. However, the following portion of the prophecy has been ratcheted up over the past 5 years:
Mat 24:9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
Mat 24:10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other,
Mat 24:11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.
Mat 24:12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
Mat 24:13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Yes! God's ultimate plan for us will continue despite all of the attempts to thwart it. As Christians, it is our DUTY to watch, WORK, and wait for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ on the clouds of heaven! Part of that work is to warn others of the evil that is keeping them from being reconciled back unto God through Christ's sacrificial death on the cross at Calvary, His subsequent Resurrection from the dead, and ultimate Ascension into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father.
The Bible (NIV version) also informs us:
Mar 4:22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.
Mar 4:23 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear."
And, please take heed of this (NKJV):
Luk 8:11 "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Luk 8:12 "Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Luk 8:13 "But the ones on the rock [are those] who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away.
Luk 8:14 "Now the ones [that] fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
Luk 8:15 "But the ones [that] fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep [it] and bear fruit with patience.
Luk 8:16 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts [it] under a bed, but sets [it] on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light.
Luk 8:17 "For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor [anything] hidden that will not be known and come to light.
Luk 8:18 "Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him [more] will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him."
Keeping such Scripture in mind, we now proceed with this post.
All of the distractions being thrown out there in Obama Confusionland, thankfully, aren't working to stop the ongoing deeper investigation into the Benghazi Cover-Up. The following link provides exclusive information:
PJM EXCLUSIVE: Ex-Diplomats Report New Benghazi Whistleblowers with Info Devastating to Clinton and Obama
Obama Lie Du Jour: 'I'm Not Familiar' with Whistleblowers Being Threatened [Hat tip: Commieblasters].
Copy of PJM Exclusive post:
More whistleblowers will emerge shortly in the escalating Benghazi scandal, according to two former U.S. diplomats who spoke with PJ Media Monday afternoon.
These whistleblowers, colleagues of the former diplomats, are currently securing legal counsel because they work in areas not fully protected by the Whistleblower law.
According to the diplomats, what these whistleblowers will say will be at least as explosive as what we have already learned about the scandal, including details about what really transpired in Benghazi that are potentially devastating to both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The former diplomats inform PJM the new revelations concentrate in two areas — what Ambassador Chris Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi and the pressure put on General Carter Ham, then in command of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and therefore responsible for Libya, not to act to protect jeopardized U.S. personnel
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.
The former diplomat who spoke with PJ Media regarded the whole enterprise as totally amateurish and likened it to the Mike Nichols film Charlie Wilson’s War about a clueless congressman who supplies Stingers to the Afghan guerrillas. “It’s as if Hillary and the others just watched that movie and said ‘Hey, let’s do that!’” the diplomat said.
He added that he and his colleagues think the leaking of General David Petraeus’ affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell was timed to silence the former CIA chief on these matters.
Regarding General Ham, military contacts of the diplomats tell them that AFRICOM had Special Ops “assets in place that could have come to the aid of the Benghazi consulate immediately (not in six hours).”
Ham was told by the White House not to send the aid to the trapped men, but Ham decided to disobey and did so anyway, whereupon the White House “called his deputy and had the deputy threaten to relieve Ham of his command.”
The White House motivation in all this is as yet unclear, but it is known that Ham retired quietly in April 2013 as head of AFRICOM.
PJ Media recognizes this is largely hearsay, but the two diplomats sounded quite credible. One of them was in a position of responsibility in a dangerous area of Iraq in 2004.
We will report more as we learn it.

Benghazi-disciplined diplomat a prolific poet
Raymond Maxwell -- one of the four State Department officials disciplined over security lapses that led to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year -- is also a prolific poet. And he's been publishing provocative verses since he was put on administrative leave December 18.
Some of the poetry represents scathing commentary on the post-Benghazi fallout and implies that he feels like he's been made a scapegoat. In "Trapped in a purgatory of their own deceit," Maxwell writes in part: "The web of lies they weave / gets tighter and tighter / in its deceit / until it bottoms out - / at a very low frequency - / and implodes...Yet all the while, / the more they talk, / the more they lie, / and the deeper down the hole they go... Just wait.../ just wait and feed them the rope."
It's a bold and almost shocking verse from the 20-year foreign-service worker who was the well-respected deputy assistant secretary for Maghreb Affairs in the Near East Bureau and former Chief of Staff to the Ambassador in Baghdad. Fluent in Portuguese, Maxwell is also an ex-Navy "mustanger," which means he leapt from enlisted ranks to commissioned officer.
An African-American, Maxwell makes use of lynching imagery in his poem entitled "Invitation," a commentary about being put on administrative leave December 18th after the State Department's Accountability Review Board (ARB) criticized pre-attack security in Libya.
Raymond Maxwell: Former Deputy Asst Secretary Removed Over Benghazi Pens a Poem
request the pleasure of your company
at a Lynching – to be held
at 23rd and C Streets NW
on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
just past sunset.
the four being lynched
must never know the identities
of their executioners, or what/
whose sin required their sacrifice.
to divert the hounds -
to appease the gods -
to cleanse our filth and
satisfy our guilty consciences.
injustice will be swift.
there will be no trial,
no review of evidence,
no due process, and no
a chilling effect will instantly
envelop Foggy Bottom.
A kangaroo court in
a banana republic.
Refreshments will not be served
because of the continuing resolution.
Who cares? They are pawns in a game.
Our game. All suckers, all fools,
all knaves who volunteered to serve -
Us. And the truth? The truth?
What difference at this point does it make?
or the Queen’s incapacitation,
her Henchmen will carry out this lynching -
as ordered, as planned.
Update: Apparently, Raymond Maxwell's blog has been removed. Was he threatened by the current corrupt ObaMARXIST BADministration? I wouldn't doubt it!!!
