To whom it may concern,
Since I wrote the first draft of this blog and sent it out frantically all over the Interwebs, to anyone who wanted to read (or really didn’t want to read), hundreds, and perhaps thousands of people now believe the impossible. There’s been a social media Great Awakening. The 6th, if we’re still counting that sort of thing.
This is a more accessible, more annotated, and sleeker-looking version, for posterity’s sake. For future generations (or maybe just one more), in case they look around to see people eating each other in the streets, and go, “Hey, is this the Apocalypse?” Well, here’s a handy reference guide. Yes it is.
Jesus Christ’s birth was prophesied for 490 years. The date and the city were specified. There were even astrological signs in the sky. Only 3 guys showed up.
There are other accounts that say that there were more than 3, like maybe 12, but I guess what I’m trying to say is that I think I’m one of the three wise men of the Apocalypse. There are more than 3 this time, though. And I’m like the least wise one. I need help with this.
I believe I have stumbled upon irrefutable evidence that the messiah is coming back. Which one? All of them.
This is strange to say considering I believe in radiocarbon dating, the big bang theory, natural selection, evolution, and the idea that we evolved from apes in Subsaharan Africa (although this theory is now in doubt). I don’t have too many answers about the first book of the Bible. My evidence is that Christian, Islamic, Jewish, and Hopi end times prophecies are all coming true. (They’ll be color-coded this way from now on.)
Now, this may get scary, but I believe the world is getting very scary, so I hope you can withstand an even scarier story. When I was very little, I used to imagine that I was falling down a bottomless pit. I used to scare myself half to death. It is not a comforting thought to me now that there will be a bottomless pit, and that I think I know its location.
However, if eternal life is something you’re interested in, you may want to read on. I do not say the word proof lightly. If you finish this blog, it will be a fact to you.
And no, God did not talk to me. I didn’t receive a vision from angels, and I didn’t ride in a chariot of fire. This is all hard-nosed tangible evidence. I have graphs and maps.
I have been agnostic for 20 years. It was only after I pieced everything together, that I suddenly believed. That’s when I was compelled to write this blog. Believe me, I was looking forward to just ceasing to exist.
I would also like to encourage readers to take the time to check out all the links if you have doubts as to what I’m saying. I’m standing on the shoulders of giants here. If there are any qualms anyone has with this theory, or if you have something to add, please let me know. My Facebook address is facebook.com/jasonstroberts.
And if anything is offensive to you, or far-fetched, or your eyes start rolling, just skip past that part. There are things towards the middle and end that are hard to dismiss, and the beginning is rather complicated. In fact, you may want to jump to the end and go backwards through this blog, if you want to see the 666s I’m finding all over China and Taiwan. I made a montage of them here.
Okay, let’s start at the beginning…
For the last 12 years, I have been wrestling with a problem that few on Earth even acknowledge exists–the problem of peak oil and peak coal: the end of fossil fuels. The following video explains it rather well: There Is No Tomorrow (limits to growth & the future).
Basically the video, along with many great sites like peakoil.com, ourfiniteworld.com, peakprosperity.com, and zerohedge.com make the case that there is no alternative to fossil fuels that even comes close, and so a massive worldwide collapse will occur. In our lifetimes, we will run out of oil, shale oil, natural gas, and most coal, and there is no energy source that will replace even 10% of it. Even viable nuclear fissile material is projected to run out in anywhere from 80 to 200 years, and in only 19 years if energy grids decarbonize. Every day, the average human consumes between 7 and 50 calories of fossil fuel for every 1 of food. We are 7-50 times more dependent on fossil fuels than on food. And it will all be gone very soon. Like, within our lifetimes. Every year will be worse than the last. That’s a very scary thought.
This graph is from http://www.roperld.com/science/energyfuture.htm, if you’re curious how this graph was estimated. Fossil fuels allowed the Industrial Revolution, which allowed the population of the Earth to balloon. Well, that balloon will pop, and pop soon. The population will probably go down to near pre-industrial levels. How? With war, famine, pestilence, and so forth.
Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? – Amos 5:20
Here is a more detailed graph from an article called “Looking Back on Limits to Growth”, which was reviewing how accurate the predictions of the book Limits to Growth by the Club of Rome were 30 years ago. They’re pretty on the nose so far. Here’s a link about it.
This completely overturned my expectations for the future, having been a science fiction fan all my life. Star Trek is a lie.
We’re not going to be zooming around the universe, shooting lasers at aliens.
First of all, where are the aliens? There are no aliens, except for maybe the Annunaki theory, or the extra-dimensional beings David Icke keeps talking about. I have my own theory on what those entities are.
Second of all, how do you get into space without something liquid on fire shooting out the back? 95% of hydrogen, which is used for rocket fuel, is made from fossil fuels. How do you make spaceships without steel, since you need coal to forge steel? Well, you can do it by turning wood into charcoal, but if you wanted to continue the same level of steel production as today, this article suggests you’d have to devote maybe half the world’s land mass to growing trees just to be used as charcoal.
So in other words, you won’t be able to put gas in your car, but then again you won’t be able to build a car either. Also, if you watch this video on how concrete is made, you’ll find out that you have to fire limestone in a kiln up to at least 1600 degrees Celsius, and so for every 3 pounds of concrete produced, you have to burn 2 pounds of coal. How do you get a kiln that hot without fossil fuels?
So there will be no gas for your car, no cars, and no roads either. The skyscrapers you see today, those are some of the last ones to ever be made. You can’t build anything higher than 6 stories without steel. The industrial farming system we have, likewise, will not work. Transport of necessary life-sustaining goods will cease, either gradually, or as the There Is No Tomorrow video suggests, not so gradually. It’ll be all at once, in a kind of 1929 crash, but much much worse.
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. – Matthew 24:21
To give you an idea of how peak oil has affected the US, take a look at this graph of peak oil production in the US:
…versus this graph of inequality and political polarization.
Notice anything? Everything in the US started going south in 1970, right when we started running out of oil. That’s also when there was a run on the gold window, and President Nixon closed it, taking us off the gold standard. Now we know why the run on the gold window happened, and therefore why he had to do that. Our inequality and political polarization has been caused by peak oil!
“The Prophet said: ‘If my Ummah bears fifteen traits, tribulation will befall it.’ Someone asked, ‘What are they, O Messenger of Allah?’ He said,
(1) ‘When any gain is shared out only among the rich, with no benefit to the poor;”
The 1970s is also when US (and world) debt levels began to skyrocket:
And when consumer prices started to spike:
Depressingly, it was also the zenith of American culture. Most would probably agree:
Take a look at peak coal production in various countries:
The US peaked in 2008. Hmmm, anything happen that year? Remember gas prices soaring just before the crash of ’08? Could it be that the economy was compensating for coal hitting its peak? It peaked in China in 2013. China began contracting that year, and now they’re total debt to GDP is basically caught up with the US’s. Coal peaked in the EU in 1987 or 1989… When did the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union fall again?
The sun never set in the British Empire in the year 1900, and their economy was the envy of the world. Simultaneously, they were also the most polluted country on Earth, with smog at levels probably worse than China’s today. Now, they barely have any military or industry left at all. Just banking. Let’s go to the graph:
So far, my theory is holding up pretty well.
So inequality, a key indicator of imminent societal collapse, is as bad as it was just before the Great Depression. And it’s no wonder, since the Federal Reserve has been doing the same thing they were doing during the Roaring Twenties: trying to fix a bad economy with low interest rates, which is putting the entire country’s economy and budget on a 0% interest credit card, essentially. Did you not know this? That’s because it’s been omitted from US textbooks.
If you read the first 20 pages The Memoirs of Herbert Hoover: The Great Depression, 1929-1941, you will find out the real cause of the crash, which was Herbert Hoover popping the speculative bubble caused by the Fed (which he had been warning against for many years) by installing a new Fed Chair who raised interest rates. He caused the Great Depression, but he saved us from a greater depression down the line.
Why did the Fed get created in the first place if it was going to wreak such havoc? Well, it was part nefariousness on the part of bankers to create a hidden endless government bailout machine, and part necessity. There was a huge problem with banking panics near the turn of the century, and if you’ll remember your US history textbook, laissez-faire capitalism ended with the Great Depression. In reality, it ended with the creation of the Fed. This, I believe, was because of the beginnings of peak oil and coal. Laissez-faire capitalism no longer worked, and so the economies of the world were put on life support, the same way an old man is put on life support. Yes, ideally, you wouldn’t need life support, because it’s so corrupt, rigid, and unfair, but without it would be total societal collapse. I believe the beginning of the end happened much sooner than people imagine. If you want more on the origin of the Federal Reserve (the central bank), read The Creature from Jekyll Island.
In effect, the Fed has recently been doing the same thing they were doing in the 1920s. There was a market recession in 2008 (and really also in 2001, and 1992, and 1987, and 1980…), and so the Fed rushed in to do the only thing it is designed to do, be a 0% APR credit card for the government and corporations. In fact, you might notice that there’s a been recession every 7 years. Do you think this is an accident? It’s not. The Fed times this, and raises interest rates in this way. I believe it has something to do with the Jewish holiday known as the Shemitah.
Is this rigging fair? No. Was it necessary? David Stockman would say no, but I would say yes. It is in effect sucking future demand into the present, burdening the future with the excesses of the present. Just like a credit card with low introductory APR. Is this responsible? No. Was it necessary? Yes, because it was the only thing they could have done. There is no other choice than racking up more and more and more debt. It is the only growth the world can manage. And the diminishing returns on this plan keep diminishing, as well. This massive debt bubble will crash one day, and it will crash all at once, and soon.
Economic prognosticators from former Reagan budget director David Stockman to economists Peter Schiff and Jim Rickards to Jim Grant of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer generally agree along those lines. The ones that don’t are the likes of Paul Krugman, who say the answer is more and more debt, and that ending the debt and the low interest rates and the quantitative easing would be catastrophic. I have unified both these theses: there will inevitably be a catastrophe, no matter what economic policies are done. We have two choices economically: to burn out or slowly fade away, as Neil Young would say. The central banks have decided to do the former. Faced with a stalling car, they are pedal to the metal, not knowing that the problem is they’re running out of gas.
I’m talking about every corporation and every social program going bankrupt at once.
I’m talking about civil wars and French revolutions in every country. I’m talking about people eating people. I’m talking about the worst catastrophe to ever happen in the history of mankind, and WILL ever happen. Nothing has ever, or will ever come close.
And it gets worse–take a look at where the last cheap oil is:
Right where we don’t want it to be–in Muslim lands. To give you a primer on the Muslim religion, watch this documentary called Islam: What the West Needs to Know. Please, do not continue reading until you understand why terrorism exists by watching this video, along with this video called Why We Are Afraid: a 1400 Year Secret. Basically, the Islamic faith calls upon the Muslim to conquer, kill, tax, or convert the nonbeliever and take his women for sex slaves. That they don’t do this is because Allah tells them to wait until they have the upper hand. Don’t start a war you’re sure you’ll win, in other words. This is the essence of Jihad. You will likely hear a different story from Muslims. This is because of their practice of lying to the infidel, which is encouraged in their religion. It could also be that they seriously don’t know their religion very well.
Well, they now have the upper hand. Muslims are flooding into the west, raping and pillaging as they go, and the west is powerless to stop it because of… oil. They would if they could, I’m sure, but they need that oil from the sheikhs to keep flowing, and I’m sure politicians all over the western world owe their campaign coffers to them.
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. – Revelation 17:17
O Assyrian, (ISIS today occupies Syria and northern Iraq–the territory of the Assyrian Empire) the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, – Isaiah 10:5-6
This follows the pattern I’ve discovered in modern history and geopolitics, which is whoever has the oil wins. Japan lost WWII because they were importing oil from the US, and when the US stopped doing that, they realized their war machine was over. This is generally accepted to be the main reason they bombed Pearl Harbor.
So for many years, while everyone was predicting a renaissance because of world trade, I figured that trade and transportation and manufacturing and everything else depended on oil, and so I expected increasing wars over that last oil. We have seen that–Bush I and II, Clinton, Obama, and and now Trump also plans to ‘take the oil’ from Syria. Good luck with that. Islamic Prophecy states that the Romans (read: the West) will be defeated at Dabiq, Syria. I believe they are correct. It will happen. Think Vietnam War cubed.
The countries that prospered the most during the 1500s through 1900s are now the countries most in debt, because what gave them a huge advantage (ability to utilize fossil fuels) has now given them a huge disadvantage (addiction to outside oil). Hence why birthrates are lowest in these countries, whereas before 1900 they were the highest.
There will be many women of child-bearing age who will no longer give birth. – one of Muhammad’s minor signs of the Apocalypse (although I haven’t been able to source this particular one in the Islamic texts)
But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. – Luke 21:23
This is what the sustainability movement and Agenda 21 are attempting to remedy. A massive reduction in population will happen, and yet it’s not super moral to start exterminating people, is it? I had no solution.
There will be one or two final, cataclysmic wars over the oil in the Middle East, annihilating most people on Earth, either by war, starvation, dehydration, or just simply lack of transportation. It’s inevitable. It will happen.
Then it dawned on me…
Which religion predicted this would happen?
Every Abrahamic religion predicted this would happen.
And right around the time the Prophecies of Daniel say it will happen.
I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: – Isaiah 65:1
I had stumbled upon something big…
If God isn’t real, then why is it that Armageddon will inevitably happen?
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter. – Proverbs 25:2
Now, I am a clown, not a king. If you were to watch my life story, you’d know this. That being said, the point here is that God supposedly leaves Easter eggs like this lying around. Is the Apocalypse one of those things mankind is just supposed to discover on their own? I decided to find out.
I figured that an Armageddon would happen, but was it the Armageddon? The Muslims, Jews, and Christians (and the Vikings and Hopi Indians) all believe in an Armageddon, so who’s to say who is right? Or are they all right? I had to delve further.
An important question I asked was why the last oil was in Muslim lands. The answer to this question is that they are simply the last to discover and use it. In fact, oil wasn’t discovered in Saudi Arabia until Standard Oil came in in 1933. Why not the Arabs themselves? Islam is not exactly against scientific exploration, and has contributed many breakthroughs to the world.
Maybe this will explain the lag in industrialization and mineral discovery:
There is a key Islamic end times prophecy wherein gold will be discovered under the Euphrates River. And Muslims are forbidden from taking this treasure. Muslims interpret the oil to be that mountain of gold. The Malhama (Armageddon) will be fought over this treasure.
The Muslims, as you can kind of guess from the rise of terrorism, are really thinking the Apocalypse is near. You can see pictures of Afghani women from the 70s wearing skirts, but now they’re fully descended into fundamentalist garb. Why?
Because they’re end times prophecies are all coming true. Yes, theirs are coming true too. And there are a lot of them. 77 is the official number, but really I think there are more than that. Let’s go through them all one by one and see if they’re coming true, and match them up to any other prophecies–Biblical or otherwise–that agree. Remember, according to the story, Muhammad could not read. Therefore, if his end times prophecies match with others, that’s really quite a trick, isn’t it?
