“Time to make the donuts… Time to make the donuts…” That is me around 3 am, half-awake: “Time to write the blog… Time to write the blog…” (Background: Google and the Messerschmitt, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 21, 2015.)
And so it was this morning: groggy, searching for a general theme. “I don’t know,” I mumbled, “maybe Tower of Babel. Might as well check the weather.”
And there it was, at the weather web site: “Feels like 666.” It was partly cloudy, the temperature was 66.6 degrees, and it “Feels like 66.6 º F”.
I immediately did a “screen capture” and you can hopefully see it at the top of today’s blog entry.
With an avalanche of dismal news, coming from several directions, it can be hard to find a framework. Plus, it seems like things are moving faster these days, what Larry Nichols calls “time compression.” In an interview by Alex Jones conducted on September 1, 2015, Nichols stated: “As you get closer to an event, time compresses. And that’s where we’re at.” (Background: Nichols Tells Chilling Tale, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, September 3, 2015.)
Dismal News From Several Directions
Russia sends a military advance team to Syria. Mysterious deaths of 60,000 antelopes in Kazakhstan. Scary “Shemitah Cycle” soothsayings. Return of the Moors to Europe. Let’s start with this last one first.
Back on July 14, 2002, at my old “Conspiracy Nation” web site, I wrote about how in the mid-1980s I had had an unusual dream, so unusual that I wrote it down at the time. In my dream, the church bulletin at a local house of worship carried a story headlined, “We’ve Come To The End.” The church bulletin, in the strange dream, announced that a McDonalds fast food franchise had located itself at the rear of the church, so that the faithful could easily have some fast food after services. Hence, since the McDonalds was at the rear of the church, the dream headline read, “We’ve Come To The End.”
So, on July 13, 2002, when the Birmingham Post-Herald carried an article about Houston’s Brentwood Baptist Church then newly featuring a McDonalds restaurant inside, it caught my interest. (“Do You Want Fries With That Sermon?” by James L. Evans).
The McDonalds “golden arches” logo could be significant, I surmised. The “golden arches” might be an occult usurpation of the Biblical rainbow, which appeared after the flood during the time of Noah.
Other aspects of my mid-1980s “We’ve come to the end” McChurch dream included “the return of the Moors” as well as “and Europe is a stony land.”
The “Moors” (Muslims) have been dramatically returning to Europe lately. During the time of El Cid (Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar) they were entrenched in Spain. In 732 A.D., at the Battle of Tours, “Charles the Hammer” (Charles Martel) had defeated the army of the Umayyad Caliphate, thus reversing the “last of the great Arab invasions of Europe.”  In 1094 A.D., El Cid inflicted the first major defeat on the Almoravid Berbers, a dynasty of Morocco which was mainly Islamic, but with some Catholic and Jewish minorities.  The tide slowly turned, until in 1492 the Moors were defeated in Granada, “thereby restoring the whole of Spain to Christian rule.” In 1492, besides Christopher Columbus setting sail for India and discovering the “Indians”, the Jews were expelled from Spain. “The Jews’ expulsion had been the pet project of the Spanish Inquisition…” 
The “Moors” (Muslims) now are returning to Europe, “blowback” from destabilization of their home countries brought about by forces of NATO and the United States. But hiding beneath the cover of these innocent refugees are extremist Muslims called variously “ISIS”, “ISIL”, and “IS”, it is claimed. It is reportedly Hijrah, “the Islamic doctrine of migration, which is a form of stealth jihad.” 
Have we “come to the end”? Is it the “return of the Moors”? Will Europe soon be a “stony land”?
“Shemitah Cycle” Soothsayings
The buzz lately has been about a financial “Shemitah cycle.” Thomas Pound, an Israeli mathematician who has studied the biblical Shemitah cycle as it applies to the financial markets, used “decennial analysis” to determine which years were optimum for investor returns. There appears to be some basis for avoiding investing in years that end in seven. The Shemitah year falls every seventh year. Somehow the year 2015 calculates to being a Shemitah year. “In September, we can expect something really bad,” predicted Pound. 
The people want amazing predictions, so “Shemitah cycle” has been widely clicked. “A new era of higher rates is upon us”, reported Associated Press on August 10, 2015.  Pharaoh dreamed: and behold, he stood by the river. There came up out of the river seven fat and well-favored kine. Next, seven other kine which were lean and ill-favored came up out of the river. The lean and ill-favored kine ate up the fat and well-favored kine. (Genesis 41: 1-4) Joseph told Pharaoh that the kine signified years. The seven fat kine were seven years of plenty, and the seven lean kine were seven years of famine. (See Genesis, chapter 41.) For seven years now, “Federal Reserve” has kept a key interest rate near zero percent. (Further background: The Dream of Pharaoh (Janet) Yellen, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, August 11, 2015.)
The Seven Lean Antelopes
“Kine”, as in “the seven lean kine” of Genesis chapter 41, are cows. Antelope are not cows, yet worth mentioning are the mysterious deaths of 60,000 antelopes in four days. Saigas, a steppe-dwelling antelope in Kazakhstan, experienced a “mass dying” around late May of 2015. It is thought that “bacteria” may have had a role, but “exactly how these normally harmless microbes could take such a toll is still a mystery.” 
Feels Like 666
The New York Times as of September 4, 2015 reports that Russia has sent a military advance team to Syria. It is feared by U.S. “administration officials” that this may signal that Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning to vastly expand his military support for President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. 
The hill country surrounding the plain of Megiddo is known also as the Golan Heights. This area forms a rocky plateau in the Anti-Lebanon mountains that overlook southern Syria. Various armies are predicted to finally be there, for the battle of Armageddon (Har-Megiddo). 
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13: 18)
It feels like 666.
