Before Life Was a Downloadable App

July 24, 2012 in TEOTWAWKI

I remember a time when the word “app” wasn’t yet a word…

…but instead an abbreviation for the word “application.” In those halcyon days of yesteryear, one had to go to a geographic location before it appeared on Google Earth to fill out said app or application with an ink transfer device; otherwise known as a pen. Do you remember ink pens? And, strangely enough, that app or application was not digital but instead printed on paper. Oftentimes, the paper that the app was printed on wasn’t 100 percent recycled!

In 1969, pop duo Zager & Evans scored a hit with a song called "In The Year 2525" In the year 2012, so much of what they sang of has seemingly come to pass...

Zager & Evans sing “In The Year 2525.”

I’m not referencing a time before the automobile, the internet, or even before the laptop computer! This time was not lived by an ancient civilization similar to the Mayans and their infamous calender that ends on December 21, 2012. Indeed, this time I write of was a mere 8 to 10 years ago!

If you are reading this blog, you likely recall that time in world history circa 2002-2005. The twenty-first century was new and despite the scars of the traumatic events of September 11, 2001 – Americans seemed to enjoy a palpable optimism, even if it may have in retrospect been unfounded. Most Americans did not watch at the wall and see what was coming over the proverbial hill. Too many Americans have become culturally, morally, and spiritually sedentary – allowing prosperity and technology to weed it’s own amber waves of grain. Instead, Americans could have been dutiful farmers – weeding and watering and applying due diligence, bearing in mind that freedom is God-given but not free.

Many would say that life in 2012 America and the world is easier than any time in history. Sheeple can store their entire life in a digital box only 4.5″ high and 0.37″ deep. Contained therein is a telephone, social media, music, video, and nearly anything one can dream of. When we are fenced-in together in a herd, we don’t even have to talk to each other. We just stare dazed at our life-box and scroll through icons and tap the keypad while having ear buds placed into our ears, so as to hear only what or who we desire. Anything that we think, do, or communicate can be facilitated through the life-box.

In 1969, pop duo Zager & Evans scored a hit with a song called In The Year 2525. In the year 2012, so much of what they sang of has seemingly come to pass…

…Technology needs the lifeblood of a stable economy to survive; even when that economy is being maintained by Advanced Life Support. As we watch the slow but persistent collapse of the U.S. and European economies today, we should experience A-Fib in our hearts and a queasiness in our souls over the obsession with placing the bulk of our existences into the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry flavored life-boxes.

Attention Sheeple – Introducing the Next Natural Man

July 16, 2012 in TEOTWAWKI

The Sheeple do as they are told…

Don’t be distracted by what some call a Zombie Apocalypse. Instead, there is a storm that is upon us now and it is slowly but steadily intensifying. What I believe that this storm will lead to served as the catalyst and inspiration for my writing of The Wayfarers fiction trilogy. As I have watched events unfold over the last several years and as I see the the world in 2012 on the brink of economic collapse and great war; my belief in that slowly but steadily growing pre-tribulation supernatural “Storm” is only being reinforced.

The Sheeple do as they are told

The Sheeple do as they are told

From my Facebook page Wayfaring Through the Storm:

What is the “Storm?” – While weather is an important aspect of the Storm, it is only one aspect. There is a spiritual battle taking place and it will be manifested through the current government, through terror and war, seismic and geological events, weather, and through organizations and individuals. This is not the Tribulation, but many will think that it is…

Until Barack Obama was elected POTUS, I would never have believed as I do now that the elective process in the United States and likely around the world is manipulated by wealthy elites who wield great power and immeasurable influence through – but not limited to – the World Bank, IMF, Federal Reserve, Wall Street, the news media, and the entertainment industry.

Barry Soetoro a.k.a. Barack Obama came virtually out of nowhere and quickly rose to his position today via the efforts of the elites who exploited his arrogance, charismatic personality and “Hope and Change” sloganeering. A gullible and easily manipulated American populace were convinced by an entertainment and news media compliant to and operated by the elites that they should elect him as the first black president.

Like Martin Luther King Jr., I prefer to judge a man by the content of his character and not the color of his skin; and in that I was able to quickly discern the dirth of the aforementioned character in Soetoro/Obama.

The sheeple of the United States and the world are seeking a natural man to solve the growing crisis; in essence run damage control during the Storm and then sit in power after they are convinced that the Storm has ended. The sheeple need to see this man on their televisions and on the internet because they lack in their spirit the faith to believe that the answer cannot be seen today through natural eyes – as He who is the answer exists in the Supernatural and in the heart.

The sheeple pursued Obama as the answer and millions will again; while others will seek may Mitt Romney as the one who can fix it all. The elite powers that be will again manipulate the system through money and corruption to select and install the next natural man to suit their own needs and not those of the voter. Concurrently, the elites undermine America and Europe through economic fascism; eroding national sovereignty so as to diminish each to make way for the one world economy and government that they believe they will control and be even more prospered in.

But what the elites don’t consider is that with this new world order will come a single religion and a new object of worship…

The elites will help facilitate the storm and use it to their own end; but truly the storm is supernatural. The elites themselves are merely pawns of Satan as it is he who will indwell the next natural man who is known in the Bible as the Son of Perdition and culturally as the Anti-Christ. He isn’t Romney or Obama; although the captivation with and the magnetism of Obama – who appeared to be the “One” who would solve all of our problems – conditioned the world to worship a natural man…

…In reality, the coming “natural man” will have his levers pulled supernaturally.

The free world is on the verge of economic collapse; and war involving Israel, America, Syria, and Iran will likely finish that collapse. There will be all manner of lawlessness through rioting, looting, pillaging and plundering. There will be hunger as grocery shelves are left bare and only the so-called “preppers” will have enough to last for a time and the armaments to protect themselves and their families. Expect Martial Law on the streets and limited internet, cellphone, and television.

The streets of American urban areas will be battle zones, and the desperadoes there will travel out to the suburbs to seek spoil; and many in those formerly safe suburbs will hope that the same Martial Law that restricts their free movement will slow those packs of urban wolves as well…

The world will cry out for a leader to repair the storm damage and to bring peace and prosperity. That man will rise into power out of the old Roman empire and those left behind who were conditioned by Obama will embrace and worship this new man. And this next natural man will tilt back his head and look smugly toward the sky while considering himself to be God.

Still, I can’t help but believe that somewhere during the storm, when the supernatural blizzard roars into the natural and the elites attempt to tame the snowicane and use it to their advantage as the new natural man prepares to put them out of business and take power, the Risen King of the Supernatural who bled as a natural man and died on the cross will come and rescue those who did not lose hope or displace their faith.

Before the next natural man begins his reign of death, the Risen King of the Supernatural will take home to that most glorious and eternal storm shelter those who worshiped Him in truth.

The Risen King is the simple answer to be pursued.

Books, Music, Movie, iPhones, TEOTWAWKI

July 6, 2012 in Books

The below video was made in April of 2012, and it may be even more relevant today than it was just months ago…

TEOTWAWKI is not a character from a Star Wars movie. TEOTWAWKI is the acronym for “the end of the world as we know it” and not to be confused with the jaunty R.E.M song which originally appeared on the band’s 1987 album titled Document. Indeed, the world as you knew it in the 1980’s, 1990’s and early years of the Twenty-First Century has ended.

The iPhone could become useless when SHTF results in TEOTWAWKI.

iPhone - is your whole life on one?

“Well, not so fast” you say:

The lights still turn on and you can still connect to the internet, so everything must be copacetic, right? 2 Broke Girls, America’s Got Talent, and Pawn Stars are on your flat-screen whenever it’s most convenient for you to watch those programs, so your rebuttal is “yeah, so what’s the problem?” There’s beer in the fridge, so why worry, eh? Your entire life is conveniently stored on an iPhone, so what could be more modern, efficient, and comforting?

What if suddenly, you couldn’t connect to the internet and text with the aforementioned iPhone – or BlackBerry, Android or any similar technological Golden Calf? How about turning on the T.V. and there’s only static or if you’re lucky, some talking face telling you not to panic and where you might go to find help – but saying that the best thing you could do is stay off the streets until further notice?

Imagine your local grocer being looted and all of your beloved Coors Light (let alone foodstuffs) having been absconded by rioters? What if trucks could no longer bring stock to your favorite corporate food store? And even if your store did have product to sell, envision the POS terminal at the checkout not being able to process your credit, debit, or food benefits card because of widespread cyber outages and a dead duck Dollar?

What if a fairly noticeable number of people around the world were suddenly missing? And, who are all those military types parking their vehicles along the street and blocking your driveway?

This is America so the above mentioned scenarios could never happen – or could they?

Not only is it possible in the non-fiction America, but it is likely – and soon.

It’s not the end of the world, but it is TEOTWAWKI and the feces will impact the air-cooling device, otherwise known as SHTF.

America’s Worst Day Ever – an Upside-Down Flag

June 25, 2012 in TEOTWAWKI

As every tumultuous day in 2012 America passes…

…the story that takes place in The Wayfarers end times fiction trilogy may appear more relevant.

The Wayfarers tale is staged in late 2009 and early 2010. But, for all intents and purposes – the story could unfold this year. The Wayfarers fictional world of 2009-2010 was perched upon a slippery and harrowing precipice. Today’s non-fictional world – and namely America – is standing and staggering like an obese, over-indulged drunkard. This metaphorical drunkard has lost it’s spiritual and moral compass through the rampant consumption of cultural firewater; while diabolically evil elites who possess immense wealth, incalculable lucidity and keen sobriety keep buying the rounds. In its stupor, the drunkard has left the storm doors open to allow in a host of supernatural vandals to ransack, pillage, and plunder.

U.S. Flag upside down is a signal of distress; as per THE FLAG CODE Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10 As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress Approved July 7, 1976

U.S. in distress

In The Wayfarers trilogy you can read about America’s worst day – in a fictional setting of course – but it is a setting that could nonetheless become factional. End times events are like dominoes and once they start to fall there is nothing any human being can do to stem a frightful chain reaction. Those end times dominoes are falling in the factional 2012 but as of today, someone or something is slowing the speed of the tumble – but for how much longer?

God is real – and He walked this earth through His son Jesus – who is fully God and was for a time fully man. Satan the angel cast out of Heaven is also real, and he and his demonic hoard walked the earth as the Wayfarers walked in 2009 and 2010 and he prowls about in 2012 hungrier than ever – seeking whomever he may devour.

Hope is likewise real; and it is from God that hope springs eternal. There was a pitched spiritual battle that took place in the Wayfarers’ America and world of 2009 and 2010 – and it is without question being waged in 2012 with all manner of supernatural weaponry that would be the envy of Pentagon war planners…

Miracles can and do happen, and for God to perform they are merely a simple task. The Wayfarers journeyed through a hostile, supernatural war zone that spilled into the Natural as it is spilling in 2012 – but they journeyed on because they had to and wanted to; and maybe it took a few miracles to keep the survivors intact?

Those who journeyed as wayfarers saw things that as the author I too have seen and those injuries have left scars. Still – and more importantly – they saw things that I pray to see…and I am buoyed by the hope and knowledge that I will. Whether it’s America’s worst day or your worst day please remember…

…no matter how hard it is, or how hard it gets – don’t ever, ever, ever, lose hope.

God bless you,
Jim Yackel
