There's no way the Pope is going there in September.

The start of the tribulation is close. I think that, as soon as Iran gets nuclear weapons, things will develop quickly. This could happen within the next couple of months: June or July. I think that they will nuke NYC this summer (June, July, or August).

Default Syria unrest fuels Lebanon violence fears

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18215174

The bloodshed in Syria has spilled over the border into neighbouring Lebanon, fuelling fears of a return to sectarian violence seen in the past.

It is a strange feeling living about 19 miles from NYC's Penn Station with this kind of talk about this summer and wondering if and how I will see September. I ask all members to pray that this prediction does not come to pass at all or for some time.

I will certainly pray for that with the awareness that God's will must be done.

I encourage everyone to pay close attention to any rhetoric and especially warnings or offers of peace which may come from the Iranian side. That will give you enough time to move away if you feel you are too close for comfort.

I myself and Ron and others will be watching closely and will certainly give you a heads up when the risk is higher.

God bless and protect and save all who will be affected.

Make a written plan of what to do in case of a nuclear attack on NYC.

Keep a bugout bag in your car if you might be at work when it happens. Know which escape route you will take and what your destination will be.
