The Rattler

Tuesday, April 30, 2013, 6:37 a.m. – the Lord Jesus woke me with the song “Why So Downcast?” playing in my mind. Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening. I read Joel 1:1-2:17 (NIV):;

Last night, after I had gone to bed, I had a vision: First off I saw a spider that looked like ones I had been looking at recently (found one dead in my kitchen the other day, and was trying to identify it). It was similar in shape to this spider: It is called a “Nursery Web Spider.” They are active hunters. “Others are ambush predators that wait quietly for prey to come to them.” They look similar to wolf spiders and to fishing spiders. “Like all spiders, nursery-web and fishing spiders have 8 legs, 2 body parts, and fangs (called "chelicerae"). Nursery-web and fishing spiders have 8 eyes” (source:

The spiders have two body parts. This particular type spider’s second body part is sort of in a cone shape. The one I saw in my kitchen had what I thought looked like a closed tulip shape to its second body part, and it was reddish-brown in color mixed with some black. Anyway, right after I saw this image of this spider in my mind, and the image was focused around this cone-shaped or closed tulip-shaped body part of the spider I heard “Rattler” in my mind. Rattlers are also cone-shaped, so I knew I was to see this body part of this spider in relation to a rattler. Rattlesnakes are venomous. They are also predators. “They kill their prey with a venomous bite.” “All rattlesnakes possess a set of fangs…” (I noted that spiders also have fangs). The threat of poisoning from a venomous bite is advertised “by the loud shaking of the” rattle - Another definition of “venom” is “malice, spite or vicious (ferocious, malicious and violent) hostility (Encarta). And, another explanation for the term “Rattler” appears to be that of a dog actor.

After I saw the spider and the cone-shaped body part and heard “Rattler,” then I saw an image of President Barack Obama in my mind.

A rattler can be one that rattles. It can mean “to make somebody lose composure and feel frightened, worried, confused or annoyed; a noisemaker” (Encarta). A noisemaker “makes noise,” which means “to spread the rumor or report of; talk; remarks or actions intended to convey a specific impression or to attract attention.” “The word noise can possibly be traced back to the Latin word nausea.” That brought to mind the term “ad nauseam” – “To a disgusting or ridiculous degree; to the point of nausea” (Source:

Ok, the president did hold a press conference this morning at the White House where he discussed such topics as the situation in Syria, the “bombings” in Boston, Guantanamo Bay, Newtown (Sandy Hook), Aurora, et al. An interesting outlook on the press conference: (link to full transcript included).

This is interesting in relation to this spider having eight eyes – the “Gang of Eight” is “a bipartisan group of U.S. senators” working toward immigration reform, apparently. Evidently that was one of the topics at the conference.

In a recent writing, Clandestine and Subversive (, the Lord Jesus, I believe, gave me a picture of spiders (and bees), living or hatching from cells, as undercover operatives who work together for secretive purposes to overthrow governments (specifically now the U.S., though not exclusive to us), their operations being “carefully planned and orchestrated swindles.” These undercover privatized secretive quasi-military police are carried along (transported; accompanied; escorted; and/or supported) by the U.S. (and International) forces. The black and red (brownish) spider is a symbol of Hitler’s swastika, which was adopted by Hitler for use with his “quasi-military force.” This privatized quasi-military and secretive Hitler-like police force is of an autocratic, authoritarian, rigid, dictatorial global (world) government, of which our government is a part (underneath in authority), and are part of this takeover of America.

What this all means

Obama is part of this “spider,” i.e. this (or another) “gang of eight.” He and this spider are hunters and predators. The spider has two body parts. One is “The Rattler,” and the other is the part with the 8 eyes and the fangs. This spider is venomous. This spider advertises the threat of its poisoning venom (vicious, ferocious, malicious and violent hostility) via “The Rattler.” Obama, I believe, is “The Rattler,” i.e. this is what he was doing in this press conference (and in other speeches). He spreads lies, deceptions, and rumors to cause the people of this country to lose composure, to feel frightened, worried and confused. His words are intended to leave people with a specific impression and to attract attention to the messages he wants the people to receive. In other words, it is mostly a pack of lies in order to deceive the people of America, and perhaps the world, into believing things that are not true in order to fulfill a very evil purpose, i.e. the venomous bite of the snake/spider.

For the past seven years, and nearly daily, the Lord Jesus has been showing me the nature of this man in relation to prophecy of scripture, that he is of Satan, that he is extremely evil, and that he and our government are involved in espionage, the takeover of nations, the killing of innocents (including targeting those who bear the testimony of Christ and his gospel), the usage of false flag operations (covert and underhanded and malicious), and the blaming of other groups of people for their dirty work. In other words, most, if not all, of these uprisings, bombings, “natural” disasters, “terrorist” activities, wars, etc. have been the doing of our government and their allied nations (the gang of eight, I would suspect). They use these “rumored” situations as justification for going into other nations, including our own, to gain control, to takeover, and to bring the people of this world underneath the authority of this New World Order (Hitler-like regime). Yet, it is an act skillfully performed by a “dog” actor. His job is to “rattle,” and then the snake/spider bite is surely to follow.

To the Word

In Joel 1-2 we learn of a time coming on the earth in which a nation, comprised of a mighty army without number, will invade God’s “land.” He will use this “mighty army” as divine instruments of judgment against his nation (his people). From the time Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again and ascended to heaven, God’s people have been true followers of Jesus Christ (Jew and Gentile alike) - the true church. The prophets of old prophesied concerning Jesus Christ (the Messiah), his death, resurrection, gospel, salvation, and of his coming judgment on his idolatrous people. The Jewish nation is no longer his people, though I believe a remnant will be saved in the final days before Christ’s return. Even if the nation of Israel turned to Christ and thus became his people once again, God would then have no cause to judge them for idolatry, unfaithfulness and spiritual adultery. Only those in relationship with Jesus Christ, as his bride, can be in spiritual adultery against God. So, I believe this coming judgment, which is supported scripturally by the OT prophets and the letters to the seven churches in Revelation, is against God’s idolatrous, rebellious, unrepentant and unfaithful people (see Rev. 2-3).

This judgment of God is unprecedented. Nothing like it has ever happened before in the history of man. This “mighty army” is described as having the teeth of a lion, and the “fangs” of a lioness. Snakes and spiders also have fangs, and venomous bites.

At the sight of them, nations are in anguish;
every face turns pale.
They charge like warriors;
they scale walls like soldiers.
They all march in line,
not swerving from their course.
They do not jostle each other;
each marches straight ahead.
They plunge through defenses
without breaking ranks.
They rush upon the city;
they run along the wall.
They climb into the houses;
like thieves they enter through the windows.

Not only is this army physically destructive, but I also get the picture that it is spiritually destructive. This passage speaks of the “new wine” (the gospel) being snatched from the people’s lips. This brought to mind a news article I read today concerning words supposedly spoken by Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, in which he spoke about evangelical Christians as “monsters.” Apparently military chaplains can now be court-martialed if they share the gospel when they are counseling troops.

This is a call for repentance, and it is a wake-up call to all “drunkards,” i.e. those living self-indulgent lifestyles who value the things of this life more than they do the things of God. This is speaking about an invasion in America, as well as what is taking place already around the globe. It is also speaking of a time of great persecution against those who bear the cross of Christ (see Rev. 13). It will be a time of great anguish and distress unequaled. God is saying to his rebellious and unrepentant people of today, “Even now, return to me with your whole heart… rend your hearts and not your garments, …for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love.”

Why So Downcast? / An Original Work / December 21, 2012

Based off Psalm 42

Why so downcast, O my soul,
And why so disturbed now within me?
Put your hope in Jesus Christ,
For I will praise His name.
He’s my Savior and my God,
So therefore I’ll remember Him through
Storms and tempests sweeping o’er me.
Still I’ll praise His name.
Put your hope in God.

By day the Lord sends forth His love.
In the night His song is with me.
I pray to the God of my life.
I will praise His name. I say to God my Rock,
“Why must I be called to suffer this way?”
Foes attack me; Satan sneering.
Still I’ll praise my God.
Put your hope in Him.

As a deer pants for the waters,
So my soul pants for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God who’s living.
When can I meet Him?
My tears have been my food at night,
When men say, “So, where is your God?”
I pour out my soul to my God.
I’ll still praise His name.
Shout with joy to Him.
