Vine of Life News note: I would add to this that Lyle, the author of this article is a member of the intelligence community. You will note that he is speaking of the same events many of us here and elsewhere are…this ought to lend a certain credibility to what he is saying I think. It’s not just we that have blogs…there are those like Lyle sounding the alarm as well…think about that.

Think also on what he says about placing your trust in the Lord…you surely will NOT be served well or saved by what is coming through the U.S. government or the coming One World Government…Jesus saves and ONLY He!

Greg The Olive Branch Report


Riots and threats of riots; civil unrest the likes our Nation has never seen before; catastrophic events and impending terrorist incidents; food shortages, economic collapse, evidence of growing governmental tyranny.  The news is not good, and it seems just about everywhere one turns the reality of impending trials and tribulations confronts your senses.  Emotionally people are becoming walking frightened beings ready to snap if events continue the apparent downhill slide.  I wonder how much I contribute to all of this fear?  I wonder if my reports and various briefings contribute to people losing sleep while gaining an aspirin addiction; or do I contribute to folks taking a spiritual and emotional inventory as to where they are in their life.  Last Friday I was asked to meet with two pastors of a fair-size (450 congregants) and steadily growing church.  Both have read various intelligence briefings I have distributed publicly, and the questions were what is coming and how should we and the church prepare.  While I discussed several specific aspects, I focused on preparing and teaching the people in the church to learn to walk in submission (cooperation) and humility (trust) with the Lord.  From that meeting, I asked the Lord if I may share some thoughts with you through this platform provided by Vine of Life News?  The publishers of VOL have graciously allowed me to participate with some truly wonderful and inspiring authors who write frequently for Vine of Life News.  While I will do my best to share insights from the world of intelligence and sincerely heed my call to stand and be a proper Watchman on the Wall and blow the Shofar if warranted – sounding the alarm to the church of approaching threats, I also would like to use my writing privilege with VOL to share, from time-to-time so we all don’t get caught-up with the events, threats and pending radical changes I see approaching our Nation, and forget the One who still sits on the Throne above Heaven and earth.  To be sure there are serious and sobering days coming, and are already here in our Nation.  The enemies of freedom, and all things American, have already positioned their nose under the tent opening working their way fully into the tent.  But our Lord is still on His Throne, still fully and completely watching every single aspect of your life, as well as the life, plans, and events of the enemy.  So draw close to the Lord and learn, it’s difficult and requires practice, but learn to be still and know the Lord He is God and there is no other!

 Psalm 46:10 tells us to be still, and David who penned most of the psalms learned how to be still and wait on the Lord; to be still and trust in the Lord; to be still and even relax in the countenance of the Lord, and David learned while under violent attack by a ruthless monster of a tyrant who wanted David killed.  There are days I struggle to be still and trust, how about you?  Well…Abba (Father) understands and continues to graciously wait as we muster our courage to let go (it’s a facade anyway that we really are in control of any aspect of our life) and choose to be submissive (there’s that word again) to His will for our life; a will He chose before the beginning of our earthly birth.  Our Heavenly Father has thought about you and me before the beginning of time and knows us right well (Psalm 139:14).  He longs for us to walk in humility with Him so we can navigate the trials and tribulations quickly coming upon our Nation.  Our Heavenly Father longs for us to come to Him so He may raise us up and strengthen us with His right hand (Isaiah 41:10).    It will not be the systems of our country that will provide for us (OK…for a short-time but not over the long haul); it will not be elected officials that will strengthen or care for you.  Our country is under assault the likes you may not even know – from people who intend to damage then collapse this once bright shining light on a hill.  There are folks in positions of great influence and power within our own government who despise America; despise our heritage and values; despise our various strengths and are working diligently and quickly to collapse the United States of America!  No area of American life will be ignored in this evil quest.  Not even the church will escape the darkness already beginning to cover our once clear and beautiful  blue sky.  

The current government shutdown demonstrates the far-reaching heavy hand that has become a centralized, faceless and uncaring government; the very nature our Forefathers feared and fought so tirelessly to keep from rearing its’ ugly head again.  Remember, our Forefathers knew a thing or two about a tyrannical King and an all-powerful central government.  They forewarned us to guard against this evil.  But it is here now only this time the rulers intend to usher in a New-World Order with a One-World Government and a One-World Religion.  What is taking place in America now, and what is still coming will prove to be the “birth pangs” described in Matthew 24.  Department of Homeland Security, TSA, NSA, Martial Law, collapse of the dollar, etc are all segments of this process leading up to a radical transformation authored by those in elected office who intend to “change” and “transform” this once strong Christian nation that truly use to proclaim: “Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord.”   Please learn now not to be swayed by events and crisis but rather to draw close to the Lord who is God, and in whom everything lives and moves and has its’ being.
