Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.
‘Time of the End’:
Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’: (NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.
(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)
4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)
Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’
Matthew 24:6-8 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Mark 13:7-8 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
Future, Real, during the ‘7 Year Tribulation’;
Revelation; Chapter SIX (6), the ‘start’ of the Tribulation when Christ, the Lamb, opens the first seven (7) SEALS of wrath or judgement against evil man’kind (6).
The following is my discernment and teaching. The Apocalypse is a ‘REVEALING’ or showing what is coming. Chapter six is a 70,000 foot view or general recap of the coming seven (7) year tribulation. It starts off with the revealing of the Beast or Antichrist and ends with the Armageddon battle on the Day or our Lord’s Return to Earth, to ‘rule the nations with an iron rod.’
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
(Commentary; Christ, the Lamb was the ONLY ONE WORTHY in heaven, to have the authority to ‘open’ the seals and start the tribulation)
Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.
3 And when he had opened the second (2) seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Commentary; ‘Rumours and Threats of Wars’ are no longer threats, but reality. War will literally ‘break out’ across the earth as nations wage war against one another. This is NOT Armageddon or WWWIII. They are fighting each other, not a common enemy or common threat. Different countries have differences between each other, and no one in particular … except perhaps for the ‘King of the East.’ This is my discernment. ‘Great Sword’ suggests great military technology, as a sword is a reference to military arms. Humanity has more destructive military power at its fingertips now than at any point in human history.
5 And when he had opened the third (3) seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Commentary; balances are symbolic for economic transactions and ‘prices’ for things such as wheat and barley grain, bread, olive oil, wine, various food commodities. These are common throughout the world and are considered by most as the ‘staples of life or living.’
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
Commentary; The world will have reached a point of ‘climate apartheid’ where only the wealthy can afford basic food resources in the face of fatal droughts, famine, locust swarms and heatwaves, while the rest of the world suffers. Only the extreme rich can afford expensive cooking oil, baked pastries and loaves of multi-grain breads, fancy wines and related luxurious food stuffs. Yet, the ‘average peasant’ has to work for an entire day’s wages just to be able to buy enough wheat to make a loaf of bread. Great and severe income inequality is rampant worldwide. The ‘few’ own a massive disproportion of the earth’s wealth and bounty. Billionaires vs billions of poor. The ‘Crown Prince’ owns 60,000 (6) tonnes of wheat in his store houses or graineries while the few grain silos in the Port of Lebanon were destroyed and its people are threatened with expensive grain shortages that require humanitarian assistance.
7 And when he had opened the fourth (4) seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.
Mountains of grain left to rot as Vladimir Putin ‘blackmails the world’
Colin Freeman Thu, May 19, 2022, 3:43 PM The Telegraph
From his seafront offices in the port city of Odesa, shipping logistics boss Viktor Berestenko looks out on Ukraine’s biggest and busiest shipping port. Or at least he used to.
“Take a look out that window there,” he says, pointing at a terminal where shipping containers are piled like Lego bricks across an area the size of several football pitches. “Do you see any ships coming from there? No. That is the biggest terminal in Ukraine – and it is the same situation with every other terminal in the country.”
The emptiness of the sea around the port is matched by the emptiness of the office Mr Berestenko stands in. Since Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine three months ago, when Russian warships blockaded Odesa and other Black Sea ports, the 112 employees of his firm, Inter Trans Logistics, have been unable to work. Nor have any of the hundreds of other freight forwarding workers in town.
Such firms are used to working in challenging conditions, their trade being forever at the mercy of the oceans. But nobody wants to risk being shelled by Mr Putin’s navy – or running into one of the sea mines that have been laid around the port.
In any country, anywhere that sells its goods by sea, this situation would spell disaster. But in Ukraine, it spells disaster for the rest of the planet too. For Ukraine is one of the world’s largest providers of food crops – in particular, supplying wheat to poverty-stricken parts of Africa and Asia.
It quite literally provides the poor nations of the world with their daily bread – without which their populations can either starve, riot or overthrow their governments.
In normal circumstances, some 3,000 container loads of grain arrive by train every day at Odesa and other Ukrainian ports, where they are stored in vast silos. Since the outbreak of war in February, though, most of that grain has simply been piling up – around 25 million tonnes at Odesa’s port alone.
The stoppage has already fuelled a surge in world wheat prices of nearly 45 per cent, and if not shipped out soon, the wheat will eventually rot.
Russian forces, meanwhile, stand accused of deliberately sabotaging what is left of Ukraine’s food production capacity. Across the country, silos have been bombed, cattle slaughtered by artillery fire, and farm infrastructure wrecked.
Some of the destruction, no doubt, is simply collateral damage from the wider havoc wreaked by the war. But Ala Stoyanova, the deputy governor of Odesa, points the finger of blame directly at Mr Putin, who has refused to heed international calls so far for an end to the port blockade. Not that she cares to call him “Mr” any more.
“I won’t call him Mr Putin, and I would recommend that you don’t either,” she told The Telegraph in an interview at her offices in Odesa, which have been relocated to reduce the risk of being targeted by Kremlin missiles.
“It is his aim, I think, to make these poor countries starve from hunger without this grain. When he blocks our ports, by this means he is blackmailing the world.”
It is a sobering assessment – not least because Russia under Communism styled itself as the champion of the world’s poor. But it is not just Africa that has to worry, she says. For where food shortages and famines prevail, and where governments fall, people will inevitably flee – fuelling, she fears, a repeat of the migrant crisis of 2015 that saw millions trying to reach Europe from sub-Saharan Africa.
“You already have a refugee crisis in Europe with people fleeing there from this war in Ukraine,” she said. “You may now get a refugee crisis from hunger in third countries too.”
Her warnings may sound apocalyptic – yet no more than those of the Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey, who used that very word this week when he warned that the Russian blockade could lead to famines worldwide.
“That is a major worry, and it is not just a major worry for this country, it is a major worry for the developing world as well,” he said. “Sorry for being apocalyptic, but that is a major concern.”
The comments by Mr Bailey – who like most central bankers normally measures his words carefully – reflect an awareness among world leaders that the Ukraine food crisis could not have come at a worse time for the developing world. As well as the aftershocks of the Covid pandemic, inflation rates and oil prices are already rising, and parts of Africa are gripped by drought.
No space to store crop
Ukraine is doing its best to address the crisis, mindful that its own agricultural workers’ livelihoods are in jeopardy too. Its farmers are a resourceful bunch, and have already been celebrated in the war for using their tractors to tow Russian tanks off the battlefield when they run out of fuel.
Many have continued to farm despite being near frontlines, some even wearing flak jackets when ploughing. “Russian aggression continues mostly against big cities, but less so in the countryside where the planting goes, so we expect to plant 90 per cent of our fields as normal,” said Ms Stoyanova.
The problem, though, is in getting their product to market. A new harvest is due in July and August, and already there is diminishing room available to store it. Efforts to try to transport some of the rising grain mountains in Odesa into neighbouring Romania and Poland by land face formidable difficulties.
Trains and trucks, at best, can only carry a fraction of the volume of today’s giant cargo freighters. And European railways also operate on a different gauge – leading to lengthy hold-ups at the border while cargos are transferred laboriously from one train to another.
“We normally export 160 million tonnes of cargo by sea and 90 million by train and truck,” said Mr Berestenko. “Now we’re having to do it all by land, and it’s just not possible. It’s not just our infrastructure that isn’t up to it, it’s our neighbours’ infrastructure too.”
Even if the Ukrainian grain could be transported through Europe, though, it then has to reach its end customers – most of them in politically fragile nations in Africa and the Middle East.
Egypt and Lebanon, for example, get more than half of their wheat from Ukraine, while other big customers are Somalia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sudan. The World Food Programme also buys 50 per of its contingency grain supplies from Ukraine.
According to the Famine Early Warning System (Fews), the war has heightened the risk of food shortages in Nigeria, Yemen, and the Horn of Africa. Somalia is particularly at risk, after an intense three-year drought.
Last month, Britain’s ambassador to Mogadishu said that more people could die there than in the country’s devastating famine of 2011, which claimed an estimated 260,000 lives.
The past decade has shown, moreover, that hungry people do not meekly accept their fate. Rising food prices were a background factor in the Arab Spring revolutions, and also fuelled the 2018 uprising in Sudan that unseated dictator Omar al-Bashir. While few were sad to see him depart, even fewer would argue that the world needs more instability right now.
“There is a rule of thumb that if the price of wheat goes up 40 per cent, then governments can start getting into trouble,” says Alex de Waal, an expert on humanitarian crises, and executive director of the World Peace Foundation in Boston.
“We saw this with the Arab Spring and also the uprising in Sudan in 2018, where the protesters used bread as a symbol and said ‘down with rule of thieves’. They were half right – the government was indeed a corrupt, thieving one, but the international price of wheat was something it had little control over.”
Risk of nations stockpiling food
So might we see a new outbreak of “Bread Revolutions”? Or worse still, “Bread Wars”? This is not a foregone conclusion, says Mr de Waal. The international community has learned lessons from discord sown by the global food prices of 2008-11, he says, and should be on guard this time to stop it happening again.
The real problem, he says, is not shortages per se – Ukraine, after all, still provides only around 10 per cent of the world’s wheat, which can be made up by increased production elsewhere. Instead, it is the risk of price rises caused by countries stockpiling emergency supplies.
Such panic-buying then puts food out of reach for the world’s poorest, whose governments are often least able to subsidise them.
Already, though, some nations are hoarding. India has banned exports of its own wheat, while Indonesia, the world’s top palm oil exporter, announced last month, in response to uncertainties over sunflower oil supplies from Ukraine, that it would no longer export its own palm oil supplies.
“There is more international oversight of this these days, with governments making efforts to avoid commodity price spikes,” he said. “But if there was yet another shock to the system, countries may easily just say ‘enough is enough’ and start hoarding to protect themselves. It is easy to say the politicians shouldn’t do that, but they’re the ones who have to deal with the protests if prices rise.”
International aid system is strained
Subsidising food for the very poor can help offset the worst effects, adds David Laborde, senior research fellow at Washington’s International Food Policy Research Institute. But he added: “That, by definition, costs money, and many poor countries don’t have that much money to spend after Covid-19.”
Nor is the international system that might normally bail such countries out in good shape either.
Mr de Waal points out that far more countries are now in humanitarian crisis compared to 15 years ago, putting the international aid system under far more strain than it used to be.
The global recession of 2008, the bloody aftermath of the Arab Spring, the spread of jihadism into the Sahel region, Ethiopia’s new civil war and last year’s Taliban take-over in Afghanistan have led to far more countries ending up in urgent need.
“Between 2008-11 there was only one humanitarian emergency, which was the famine in Somalia,” he said. “Now the World Food Programme has 10 countries on the emergency list, including Afghanistan and Yemen, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and the Congo.
The WFP appeals for those countries have attracted less than 20 per cent of the money they need, while the WFP’s operating costs have gone up 44 per cent in the last year because of food and fuel cost increases.”
Weaponising the threat of famine
So what is to be done? The World Food Program has asked Washington, which is one of its biggest benefactors, for $5 billion in additional international food assistance. Ministers from the G-7 group, meanwhile, are seeking to build “agricultural solidarity lanes” to get grain fast-tracked to those countries in greatest need, amid warnings that up to 50 million people will start feeling shortages in coming months.
International pressure is also intensifying on Russia to ease its blockade of Odesa and other ports so that food shipments can come and go. Diplomats believe a precedent has already been set in terms of agreements to allow civilians and Ukrainian soldiers to exit the besieged port of Mariupol.
But no such agreement is in place yet, and with every week that passes, Ms Stoyanova’s theory that Mr Putin is weaponising the threat of famine gains new and powerful backers.
Among them is Annalena Baerbock, Germany’s Foreign Minister, who last week broke with her country’s long-standing habit of giving Mr Putin the benefit of the doubt.
“We must not be naive,” she said. “It is not collateral damage, it is an instrument in a hybrid war that is intended to weaken cohesion against Russia’s war.”
For Ukrainians, it also carries chilling echoes of the past. During Soviet rule in the 1930s, Joseph Stalin deliberately starved Ukraine by collectivising farms and seizing Ukrainian grain, leading to millions dying in a famine remembered today as the Holodomor.
He never faced punishment for his crimes against the food supply – but some believe that it could form one of the charges against Mr Putin were he ever to face prosecution by the Hague.
“The crime of starvation in law does not require you to prove that people died – just that they were deliberately deprived of food,” said Mr de Waal. “Ukraine today may not be quite like the Holodomor of the 1930s, but with international prosecutors now in Ukraine, it could be of potential interest to them.”
