THE RESURRECTION & THE GREAT CASINO IN THE SKY
By Paul McGuire
Our present age is one of great uncertainty. There is a pervasive knowing among hundreds of millions of people on this planet that we are moving towards some great impending disaster or cataclysm. It is a collective knowing that is primal and ancient in its instincts, like the way animals behave before an earthquake. In addition, to those who are awake, there is the knowledge of the gathering forces of evil. Historically, this kind of sociological environment leads to a kind mass gambling mentality.
People begin to throw the dice with their lives, marriages, and morals. They do not know what tomorrow may bring, or even if there will be a tomorrow? This was the climate of the French Revolution, where a topless woman rode on horseback as a human symbol of the goddess of reason. French philosophers, like Rousseau, fueled the flames of a humanist revolution which rejected the notion of a God and His laws. Orgies were held in the sanctuaries of the churches, and a bloody and violent revolution occurred. Thousands were beheaded on the guillotines and the radical, Robespierre, began his, “Reign of Terror.” The French philosophers and revolutionaries overthrew the power of the church and replaced it with the power of man. The idea of an irrational universe with no Personal God, just random chance and luck, produces a fertile climate for totalitarianism.
America and the world are following in the footsteps of the French Revolution, where life has no meaning and we are here simply rolling the genetic dice. In a world that has become a gambler’s paradise, it is clear that an inner courage is being summoned and a call for a strength that is way beyond our current human capacity will be needed for what lies ahead.
In Francis Ford Coppola’s, “Apocalypse Now,” he depicted the chaos of that time and we see that chaos, emerging again in our contemporary films. What does the future hold and is it possible to predict outcomes? The problem is that when we have conducted such an analysis and stared into the chaos, it is possible to become overwhelmed by fear, as if one stared into the great abyss and the rise of an Orwellian super-state. The spiritual force of fear rips through our consciousness, like a paralyzing electrical current that immobilizes, for that is its intent. But, one does not have to surrender to the riptide of that fear. For there is a greater force than fear and that is the force of faith. True faith overcomes fear. True faith is not a mystical faith that offers the solace of a rabbit’s foot or feeling lucky with the Great Casino in the Sky. It is a scientific faith anchored in a specific event that occurred in real space-time-history. That event is the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead in front of numerous witnesses. That one single event changes all of human history both past, present, and future. It is like walking in from the dark desert of Darwinian evolutionary random chance into a great Las Vegas casino all lit up. Yet, when you walk into the room the odds instantly change. All of a sudden, you win at everything you play and the house can’t stop it! It is not a matter of luck, the odds have actually, mathematically changed.
As we look into the future and look at our lives, we must remember that an event occurred that changed our odds forever. For example, it is a scientific fact that every man or woman who is born dies. But, through faith, the odds have changed. You die, but then you resurrect from the dead, with a new body. That should not happen! It is against house rules. The casino owner is furious, because he bought your soul. But somebody more powerful bought you back, with one condition. The condition is you have to accept the fact that He bought you back. You have to believe it. The only way the odds change and the house rules are suspended is when you believe it.
That may sound simplistic and something out of a Fairy Tale. The beautiful princess kisses the frog and the frog is transformed into a handsome prince. The simplicity in dealing with cosmic odds bothers a lot of people, it actually offends them. But, you have to understand the mathematics of what happens when you roll the dice. You are dealing with mathematical law and physics. Like Albert Einstein’s E=mc2.
Whether or not neutrinos are faster than light, Einstein’s equation released the power of the nuclear bomb or nuclear power plant. Some believe that the energy released could produce a Star Trek-type, warp drive technology. The resurrection of Jesus Christ released infinite power into our seemingly finite universe. The same power that created the universe at the beginning of time is the same power that resurrected Christ from the dead. It is the same power that will create the future.
The reality is that the casino does not control the odds and their house rules will vaporize at the speed of light due to the energy released in the resurrection. Even the darkest projections concerning the human future cannot withstand the power of this released energy to resurrect people from the dead and create a new heaven and new earth. However, atomic energy was only released when Einstein’s mathematical formula was applied. In the same way the power of the resurrection can only be applied when it is received into the human heart through belief. Its complexity lies in its simplicity, the divine conundrum.
When the cosmic dice are thrown, the odds are now fixed in your favor. You resurrect from the dead and the future is changed. The pervasive darkness is dissipated by the dazzling light of a wondrous future, a thousand times brighter than the casino. A lot of people don’t know it yet, but the house rules were broken a long time ago. All great gamblers understand that beyond the roll of the dice, it’s about the math.
Do the math and believe.

Pre-Order "Moon into Blood"
America and the world are racing to the End of the Age.
A global convergence of cataclysmic forces, predicted by the ancient prophets known, as The Tribulation Period, is about to unfold. The opening of the Seven Seal judgments releases the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. World War III, mass death, thermonuclear war, global economic collapse, mass starvation and terrible man-made plagues that the Center for Disease Control describes as a “zombie apocalypse.”
Earth changes are produced through asteroid impact and earthquakes that cause environmental holocaust. The elite hide in underground cities. Transhuman and Posthuman species, which are the result of interspecies breeding of man, animal and Nephilim, who mate with human women. This Cyborg army moves east to Israel and Armageddon.
God makes a supernatural promise to deliver His people from the wrath to come. In the next few years, the elect will learn to use spiritual weapons in a parallel universe or invisible realm. They will confront demonic entities, moving into the earth through Luciferian portals. A massive last day’s soul harvest will occur before the Return of the Lord. On the dark side, millions will accept the mark of the beast and become slaves in the Antichrist’s new world order.
As the armies of the earth fight against the Messiah at the Second Coming, the world is transformed through His victory. Paradise is restored; a New Heaven and New Earth appear.
There is a coming event that will change everything on planet earth!
Are You Ready? Gospel Challenge By the grace of God, the Lord has opened the door for me to share with millions of people the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the avenue of Bible prophecy and current events. Every week at Paul McGuire Ministries we get reports somewhere in the world, about individual who watched one of my DVD’s, saw me on television, heard me on the radio, visited the Blog and websites, attended a church meeting or conference and read one of my books. They usually start by saying something like, “I was very turned off by the Christian religion or I used to be a Christian.” Then they explain that someone gave them one of my books, they began reading the articles on my website or watched a DVD because it talked about economics, prophecy and what is really happening in this world, which the media is not telling them. Finally, they tell me that they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior or that they returned to the Lord after reading a book I have written or watched a DVD, because someone gave it to them! Someone like you!

Paul will teach to you all the major positions on Bible propehcy such as the Pre-Tribulational, Mid-Tribulational, Post-Tribulational and Preterist perspectives.

Paul also integrates the reality of the coming global government, one world economic system and the coming one world religion into his classes. Paul shares his personal interviews with world leaders like former President Jimmy Carter, the former Prime Minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, U.S. and Israeli military generals and people high up in the Pentagon, DOD and military intelligence. Paul does not teach half-baked conspiracy theories, but draws from his personal contacts and relationships with the heads of the largest banking conglomerates in the world, Israel General's like Shimon Erem, who calls Paul a "watchman on the wall of Jersualame, one of the best," the heads of the Fox News Network, CNN and a spectrum of world leaders.

Simply ask the Lord if He wants to use you to invite people to your home or church to watch the 3-DVD series, "Are You Ready?"
Watch Paul at his good friend, Dr. David Hocking's Last Days Deception in Conference..
" Paul speaks on,"Deception in the Government." the first government in the Garden of Eden. The first one world government at the Tower of Babel or Babylon. The Tower of Babel was a demonic portal and a astrolgical/occult worship center. Globalism, the IMF, the Federal Reserve System, CFR and the occult, all have their roots in ancient Babylon. This is why on the back of the U.S. dollar we see the occult pyramid with the all-seeing eye of Lucifer and the words, "Novus Ordo Seclorum," which means "New Order of the Ages" or "New World Order."Click here to view.
Paul's second message at the Last Days Conference was, "Deception in the Economy." where Paul reveals the ties between the International Monetary Fund, Nazism, the occult and the New World Order. Paul explains the roots of the Federal Reserve and the coming one world economic system. Click here to view.
PAUL SPEAKS AT THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PROPHECY CONFERENCE ON THE COMING ONE WORLD RELIGION. (Click here) Paul talks about the Tower of Babel, the coming one world religion headed by the False Prophet. The temptation in Eden and how it compares the coming regional global government called The North American Union, where Canada, Mexico and the U.S. will become one. Also, Israel as God's prophetic time clock and the need to support it.
The reality is that we live in a time when much of the church does not teach on Bible prophecy or the Book of Revelation. Millions do not know that Jesus Christ warned of pestilences and plagues in the last days. Tragically, much of the church has lost the passion to reach the lost! They have no passion to reach the lost, because they do not teach on heaven and the reality of hell. At Paul McGuire Ministries we have a burning passion to reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and God's prophetic Word. We produced the3-DVD series, "Are You Ready?"to reach the lost through a powerful evangelistic tool and educate Christians about what Bible prophecy. "The fields are white for harvest."
You can show "Are You Ready?" in your home or church. Just step out in faith!
In the U.S. and globally all efforts would be made, no matter how destructive, to contain and destroy the outbreak. It is interesting to note, that in the Council on Foreign Relations, "Building a North American Community," 59-page document that was published in 2005, which calls for the merger of Canada, Mexico and the United States. Canada, Mexico and the U.S. work together in a coordinated effort to stop a bird flu pandemic. Paul's novel, "The Warning," is about a terrorist attack on America, where people will be offered a microchip implant.

Paul McGuire is a Watchman on the wall, one of the best!"
-General Shimon Erem
DVD 1 - Are You Ready for the One World Government?
A global government predicted in Revelation is about to rise. This global government, such as the United Nations, would have its own law and government to replace the U.S. Constitution and government.
In this 3-DVD set Paul is a Watchman warning the people what is about to come and what they can do about it, in practical terms! Paul exposes the master plan behind the creation of a one world government, a one world economic system and a one world religion. Our nation and world are about to experience a cosmic convergence predicted by the ancient prophets. The Bible tells us "My people perish for lack of knowledge." Most people do not have any idea about what is about to happen. There are very few Watchmen to warn them.
Are mass food riots, social unrest and chaos being used to create a new world order?
How are the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations and Illuminati involved in this global government?
Is it true that a United Nations military force is secretly based inside of America?
What about the reports of Russian, Chinese and foreign military troops stationed in the U.S.?
Have members of the National Guard and police picked up radio signals from foreign troops that use new radio frequencies that are technically banned from U.S. troops, police and the National Guard?
The Royal Society in England meets to discuss "Weather Control" technology. A special research report prepared for the Army in "Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025" was discussed. Are Weather Weapons already being deployed?
There are numerous technologies that can produce Mass Brainwashing. Is it true that advertisers and government can read your brainwaves when you are watching television?
John Dewey is the father of modern education and social engineering through the school system. Is the real purpose of education to educate or indoctrinate?
How close are we to the prophecy of Ezekiel 38, which involves Israel, the Middle East and World War III?
Was there really a plan to destroy nationalism and patriotism through mass immigration policies that started 50 years ago?
Are environmentalism and climate control wealth redistribution mechanisms?
Have the elite really made public statements that their end game is to turn America into a totalitarian Marxist State like China?
Are there laboratories around the world in which transhumanism and the interbreeding of animal, human and Nephilim DNA are being used to create cyborgs for warfare?
Is there an attempt to censor the science of Earthquake forecasting? What does the science of Earthquake forecasting say about Japan, New Madrid and California?
Do the elite plan to destroy over 7.5 billion lives through population control, eugenics, vaccines, food, weakening the immune system, wars, genocide and sterilization? If so, why?
Every move, action and thought you make can be monitored through new technology. Are you ready? This DVD offers a personal action plan for you and your family. What steps can you take now to occupy until Jesus Christ comes?
DVD 2 - Are You Ready for the Coming One World Economic System?
Are the international bankers controlling government, media, education, science, military and culture for their purposes?
Is it true the bankers plan to seize your property, keep its equity and then turn the nation into renters rather than owners?
This goal has two purposes: (1) Increase the wealth of the bankers by trillions of dollars. (2) In a Marxist Revolution it is essential to destroy belief in God, the family and home ownership. The destruction of home ownership creates the psychological destruction of the human personality as an individual created by God. It degrades men and women into falsely believing they have any value. There is no commitment in "marriage" and no belief in God. After this, people are willing to accept the mark of the beast.
Why have you not read very much, except in the Wall Street Journal and sources like this, that George Soros has a Bretton Woods II Plan and the Institute for New Economic Thinking?
Why are we not being told about the hidden agenda to create a one world economic system where the international bankers control everything?
It is hard to believe that a brutal global dictatorship will be brought into power through a new world financial order and global taxes?
If accomplished, this economic plan will plunge the human race into a new Dark Age or Tribulation Period, where a small group of elite seize control of the human race who become worthless slaves. Why would anyone want to do this? Why would anyone want to do what Adolph Hitler did?
Does the Bible really predict a coming cashless society and the mark of the beast?
Did Lord Jacob Rothschild's 1971 Inter-Alpha Group (whose family line included both banking and the Illuminati) create much of the financial chaos in order to move forward their agenda?
Will the current global financial policies lead us into the Tribulation Period?
Did Lord Bertrand Russell, atheist and Fabian Socialist, call for nuclear wars and Black-death like plagues to kill millions?
Why was Adolph Hitler promoted by Britain and American interests to enforce eugenic policies to kill over 6 million people in the concentration camps? There are powerful global interests carrying out those same policies today!
Did Hitler and Russell advocate genocide and euthanasia and the "green movement?"
Some of the world's most powerful billionaires have deliberately undercut the world's food production. What action plan can you take to survive the Planned World Food Crisis and hyper-inflation?
DVD 3 - Are You Ready for the Coming One World Religion?
A highly secretive and occult religious movement is organizing all the religions in the world into one. This coming one world religion, which is happening before our very eyes, will provide the spiritual glue to unite the world's religions into one so that a one world government and a one world economic system can be implemented. The elite understand that money is a spiritual force and that is why we have the all-seeing eye of Lucifer and the words "New World Order" on the back of the dollar bills.
Millions of children are being indoctrinated into witchcraft and paganism.
The Illuminati, founded in 1776, used the Freemasons to spread their power globally. The Illuminati were behind the French Revolution which produced anarchy and revolution. The Illuminati unleashed the spirit of antichrist, where the people held orgies in churches and paraded a topless woman on a horse, who they called the Goddess of Reason. This was a forerunner of the Communist Revolution. Karl Marx was a Satanist and the Illuminati manuscript provided the principles for the Communist Manifesto. The Italian Communist leader, Antonio Gramsci, had close ties to the Masonic leader, Albert Pike, in America, who predicted three major world wars. The third world war was to happen in the Middle East.
The Third Reich and Adolph Hitler were deeply involved in Satanism and the occult. When the U.S. government brought thousands of Nazi rocketry and mind control scientists to America after World War II, many of these men and women were in the occult or practicing Satanists.
Aleister Crowley, who was called the Beast, was a British agent before World War II who had occult-connections all over Europe. Crowley, whose face is on the cover of the Beatle's album "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," remains a powerful influence today. Members of the occult and Satanism have entered the very highest levels of government, religion and military intelligence around the world.
Finally, the Evangelical Movement has been infiltrated by leaders who promote apostasy, spiritual deception and the doctrines of demons. Entire church movements, popular in Evangelical churches today, are based on occult teachings and Marxist theory!
This DVD answers the question how you and your family can learn to use spiritual discernment to protect yourself from being deceived?

Moon into Blood -
America and the world are racing to what the Bible calls "the End of the Age."
Once again, the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, has made a speech in which she openly warned that we are heading for a repeat of the "1930s".
"It is not about saving any one country or region. It is about saving the world from a downward economic spiral. I believe that we have to watch out for something along the lines of an economic martial law. The European system is in collapse. The financial system in the United States is just as tenuous, if not more, and I believe they will not admit there will be a financial crash but rather they will use a geo-political issue to get the people in a state of fear and hysteria whereby they'll then call a bank holiday or devaluation of the currency, or a hyperinflation of the currency, and blame it on somebody else."
There is a global convergence of forces predicted by the ancient prophets that are bring us to a time know as The Tribulation Period, the most cataclysmic event in all of human history. The Seven Seal judgments are opened releasing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. World War III, mass death, thermonuclear, global economic collapse, mass starvation and terrible man-made plagues that the Center for Disease Control describes as a "zombie apocalypse."
Prior to and during the Tribulation Period billions of people are going to die through tsunami's, earthquakes, food shortages, war, biological plagues, asteroid impact and mass genocide. The English philosopher, Reverend Thomas Malthus, published his theories of population in the, "Essay on the Principle of Population," in 1798. Malthus basically said, "That all of mankind's problems are due to excessive population growth."
Ironically, this idea is the direct opposite of God's principle of, "Be fruitful and multiply." Today, Rockefeller and those who call themselves the "scientific elite," have a plan to reduce the earth's population by 7 billion to 500,000. In the Georgia, Guide stones, a kind of New Age Ten Commandments, that goal is etched in rock.
Earth changes are produced through asteroid impact and earthquakes that cause an environmental holocaust. The elite hide in underground cities. The Transhuman and Posthuman species, is the result of interspecies breeding of man, animal and Nephilim mating with human women. This Cyborg army moves east to Israel and Armageddon.
The New Age thinker, French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) rejected a Biblical worldview, to describe the level of complexity and consciousness towards which he believed the universe was evolving. Teilhard described this evolutionary process of the universe becoming aware of itself as the "Omega Point."
Transhumanists like Ray Kurzweil believe that we are entering a world where our Transhumanist creation of supermen, along with computers and technology, will become superior and more intelligent than human beings. This event which Kurzweil calls, "The Singularity," could cause the computers and cyborgs to revolt against man and rule the universe.
And much, much, more! Available for pre-order now!
In the Book of Revelation we read about how the False Prophet causes men and women to worship the image of the beast. In addition, there are numerous references to strange phenomenon, which could be referring to the Antichrist and Lucifer using "The Singularity," in order to create a soulless race of Posthuman's who will serve Satan.
There is a coming event that will change everything on planet earth which millions of people are being prepared for. This event will either be the announcement of Extraterrestrial or other dimensional life. This event could be as the Nazi scientist Werner von Braun, suggested, a massive delusion produced by technology. Also, it could be an event that announces the existence of the Nephilim.
As I wrote about the other day, the World Bank has also been using apocalyptic language about the global financial situation. In a shocking new report, the World Bank revised GDP growth estimates for 2012 downward very sharply, it warned that Europe could be facing financial collapse at any time, and it instructed the rest of the world to "prepare for the worst."
An environment for a "perfect storm" is developing, and most Americans have absolutely no idea what is about to happen.
