“Prepare for the time of the great famine” — the first warning, on U.S. Mideast involvement

Guidance from the spiritual messengers of God, Aka, April 29, 1970 (Part 1 of 3)

In the first month that the spiritual messengers of God, Aka, arrived with the brightest light in the heavens (in late March 1970) they warned of a coming famine.

Many times they have lovingly guided us to prepare for it. They say the famine will be brought on by man; it will begin as an inflationary depression. (They also warned people to prepare for regional disasters, as well as earth and climate changes, as the future unfolds. Information on these events will be shared in other documents on the great Sword.) This writing is to simply focus on what may be the most important information of all, suggestions on how to prepare.

As you read their compassionate words today, they may seem to be more relevant now than when they were spoken. Their loving, prophetic guidance is offered in hope that we will both pray and prepare for our needs and then others — families, neighbors, friends, communities ­– however one can help after preparing first for oneself.

The dates this guidance was spoken appear beside Aka’s words, typed in bold to let the reader know who is speaking.

On April 29, 1970, the spiritual messengers of God cautioned of famine. This, that man may cause, could have far-reaching effects upon our world. Had we heard their warning, and known then what we now see in the news unfolding in the Middle East, would we have chosen a different path?

The spiritual messengers of God spoke these words, April 29, 1970: “As I have said before, the time of the Red Horse is here.” [See The Revelation 6:3–4.]

“I have said that the Horse [Pakistan?] will attack the Bear [Russia]. Now, I will warn thee that the Eagle [U.S.A.] shall join the Bear. The fuse is lit. And as it burns, it may consume thy earth. As in all things, a free choice — there are chances still that this shall not happen. But from the extra claws the Eagle will attach to itself, it does not look like it shall avoid these wars. Therefore, the crucial time shall be in the next ten years.

“Prepare thy group for its coming. Prepare for the time of famine.”

“The time of whom?” Rod who was sitting by him asked, unable then to even understand the words he’d heard. It was too far removed from world events (happening then during the Vietnam war), or anything he’d ever imagined.


“Phantom?” Rod asked again, thinking maybe he’d heard wrong.

“Nay. The time of the great famine.”

“Famine?” Rod asked again.


“At a later time instructions shall be given to the preparation for this time.”

Have you thought of how you will prepare?

Editor’s note: It is difficult to interpret prophecies. One’s greatest hope is not to misinterpret the words of spiritual messengers of God. But for the sake of the reader, some historical perspective is offered about the words they spoke in 1970. If this interpretation is correct, we will all know the rest — up until the present. But the spiritual messengers of God may speak of more of our future.

What happened within the next crucial 10 years? One thing was the Afghan War of 1978–92, as a coalition of Muslim guerrillas, the mujahideen, variously commanded by regional Afghan warlords heavily subsidized by the United States, fought against Afghan and Soviet forces. The Soviet–Afghan War lasted from December 1979 to February 1989. [See the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan section on the Wikipedia page on Jimmy Carter. Other events may have been the 1978 Camp David Accords that led to the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.]

In January 1980, foreign ministers from 34 nations of the Islamic Conference adopted a resolution demanding “the immediate, urgent and unconditional withdrawal of Soviet troops” from Afghanistan, while the UN General Assembly passed a resolution. Afghan insurgents began to receive massive amounts of aid, military training in neighboring Pakistan and China, paid for primarily by the United States and Arab monarchies in the Persian Gulf. As documented by the National Security Archive, “the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) played a significant role in inserting U.S. influence in Afghanistan by funding military operations designed to frustrate the Soviet invasion of that country. CIA covert action worked through Pakistani intelligence services to reach Afghani rebel groups.”

November 4, 1989: Mujahideen wounded in Afghanistan’s civil war are led off of a US C-141B Starlifter aircraft following a medical evacuation flight. Twenty-four rebels wounded were evacuated from Islamabad, Pakistan, and will be taken to hospitals in Europe and the United States for donated medical treatment.

Under CIA’s Operation Cyclone from 1979 to 1989, the United States and Saudi Arabia provided $40 billion worth of financial aid and weapons to almost 100,000 mujahideen and “Afghan Arabs” from forty Muslim countries through Pakistan’s ISI.

In 1979, Osama Bin Laden joined mujahideen forces in Pakistan fighting against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. He helped to fund the mujahideen by funneling arms, money and fighters from the Arab world into Afghanistan, and gained popularity among many Arabs. Bin Laden established camps inside Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan and trained volunteers from across the Muslim world to fight against the Soviet puppet regime, the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan. (Wikipedia)

On May 15, 1988, the final Soviet troop withdrawal started, and it ended on February 15, 1989. The war was considered part of the Cold War.

As the Soviet troops were withdrawing from Afghanistan, research suggests that al-Qaeda was formed at an August 11, 1988, meeting between “several senior leaders” of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, Abdullah Azzam, and bin Laden, where it was agreed to join bin Laden’s money with the expertise of the Islamic Jihad organization and take up the jihadist cause elsewhere after the Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan. Following the Soviet Union’s withdrawal from Afghanistan in February 1989, Osama bin Laden returned to Saudi Arabia in 1990 as a hero of jihad.

The Revelation 6:3–4 says: “When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, ‘Come!’ Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.” Aka said, “China is the Dragon. And the Red Horse is Pakistan.”

As the new year had begun, January 29, 1988, Aka had answered this question: “In 1973, you spoke of the Red Horse, to beware of the Red Horse. Who is the Red Horse? And who is China?”

“China is the Dragon. And the Red Horse is Pakistan. For what you have given unto this country, Pakistan, you have given unto the ‘Black September.’ And for what the nations shall give unto the power of the Palestinians is but a short time they shall have it back, for this is a nation of terrorists, murders, who have cared not, for they have not known of God, nor shall they ever − for they are the Anti-Christ.

“Yet, they shall come unto you and say, ‘Woe is me.’

“But when they kill you and kill your children, and rob your churches − and they have already done these things and proven themselves that which they are − they condemned themselves in the eyes of God.

“And we say unto you, the sins of the mother and father shall go into the fifth generation. For as in the days of Lot, the Lord would look upon them and say, ‘Show Me ten righteous men and we shall not destroy them.’

“But yet, you have freedom of choice.”

Wikipedia states: Bin Laden believed that the Islamic world was in crisis and that the complete restoration of Sharia law would be the only way to “set things right” in the Muslim world. He opposed such alternatives such as secular government, as well as “pan-Arabism, socialism, communism, democracy.” He subscribed to the Athari (literalist) school of Islamic theology. His viewpoints and methods of achieving them had led to him being designated as a terrorist by scholars and journalists. Bin Laden was heavily anti-Semitic, stating that most of the negative events that occurred in the world were the direct result of Jewish actions. In a December 1998 interview with Pakistani journalist Rahimullah Yusufzai, bin Laden stated that Operation Desert Fox was proof that Israeli Jews controlled the governments of the United States and United Kingdom, directing them to kill as many Muslims as they could. In a letter released in late 2002, he stated that Jews controlled the civilian media outlets, politics, and economic institutions of the United States. In a May 1998 interview with ABC’s John Miller, bin Laden stated that the Israeli state’s ultimate goal was to annex the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East into its territory and enslave its peoples, as part of what he called a “Greater Israel”. He stated that Jews and Muslims could never get along and that war was “inevitable” between them, and further accused the U.S. of stirring up anti-Islamic sentiment. He claimed that the U.S. State Department and U.S. Department of Defense were controlled by Jews, for the sole purpose of serving the Israeli state’s goals. He often delivered warnings against alleged Jewish conspiracies: “These Jews are masters of usury and leaders in treachery. They will leave you nothing, either in this world or the next.” Shia Muslims have been listed along with “heretics, […] America, and Israel” as the four principal “enemies of Islam” at ideology classes of bin Laden’s al-Qaeda organization.

The August 2, 1990, Iraqi invasion of Kuwait under Saddam Hussein put the Saudi kingdom and the royal family at risk. With Iraqi forces on the Saudi border, Saddam’s appeal to pan-Arabism was potentially inciting internal dissent. Bin Laden met with King Fahd, and Saudi Defense Minister Sultan, telling them not to depend on non-Muslim assistance from the United States and others, and offering to help defend Saudi Arabia with his Arab legion. Bin Laden’s offer was rebuffed, and the Saudi monarchy invited the deployment of U.S. forces in Saudi territory. Bin Laden publicly denounced Saudi dependence on the U.S. military, arguing the two holiest shrines of Islam, Mecca and Medina, the cities in which the Prophet Mohamed received and recited Allah’s message, should only be defended by Muslims. Bin Laden’s criticism of the Saudi monarchy led them to try to silence him. The U.S. 82nd Airborne Division landed in north-eastern Saudi city of Dhahran and was deployed in the desert barely 400 miles from Medina.

Bin Laden was banished from Saudi Arabia in 1992, and shifted his base to Sudan, until U.S. pressure forced him to leave Sudan in 1996. After establishing a new base in Afghanistan, he declared a war against the United States, initiating a series of bombings and related attacks. We’ve seen what’s been happening since. (Wikipedia)

Wikipedia states: Bin Laden’s overall strategy for achieving his goals against much larger enemies such as the Soviet Union and United States was to lure them into a long war of attrition in Muslim countries, attracting large numbers of jihadists who would never surrender. He believed this would lead to economic collapse of the enemy countries, by “bleeding” them dry. Indeed, al-Qaeda manuals clearly express this strategy. In a 2004 tape broadcast by al-Jazeera, bin Laden spoke of “bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy”.

Remembering the prophetic warning at the beginning of this article that Aka spoke April 29, 1970? “I have said that the Horse [Pakistan?] will attack the Bear [Russia]. Now, I will warn thee that the Eagle [U.S.A.] shall join the Bear. The fuse is lit. And as it burns, it may consume thy earth. As in all things, a free choice — there are chances still that this shall not happen. But from the extra claws the Eagle will attach to itself, it does not look like it shall avoid these wars. Therefore, the crucial time shall be in the next ten years.

“Prepare thy group for its coming. Prepare for the time of famine.”

In the crucial 10 years after 1970, what “extra claws” did the U.S. attach to itself? Did we just read about them?

What wars did we not avoid? We know the war in Kuwait followed. Then Iraq. Then Libya fell. Syria is being invaded, while Russia moves to protect its Syrian port and interests. Al Qaeda appears to have changed; some fighters may have joined the Islamic State in Syria (ISIS).

Afghanistan remains a battleground.

But is there something more? What did our Father see in 1970, that He loves us enough to send His spiritual messengers to warn us?

We should pray about future wars — or World War 3. Pray that the fuse that was lit does not go on to enflame the world. But if such were to happen, we will want to have prepared ourselves, our families, and others beforehand. Is this not the kind of man-made catastrophe loving spiritual messengers of God would try to warn us to avoid, ask us to pray that God avert, and then even seek to guide us to safety?

When Rod first heard Aka say, April 29, 1970, to prepare for the time of the great famine, he couldn’t even recognize the word.

As the spiritual messengers of God ended their message that evening, April 29, 1970, Rod asked: “”Is there anything else that you would like to give us at this time?”

They answered: “In the process of the Bear, the Horse, and the Eagle, the Bear shall be bitten by the Lion, and the Eagle shall be bitten by the Lion. The only way that these things can be prevented — that the building of the temple of God in man — that the building of not the churches, but of the philosophy of God in man, and the knowledge that all man has been born before and shall be born again — that not only shall man live again, but so shall a nation in a different form. And [yet] could it be not that this nation of yours be destroyed and there should be an awakening.

“This is all at this time.

“It would be suggested that soul Ray be woken from his slumber.”

“Do you have time for one more question?”


“How does the great Sword or the changing of the land masses fit in with the wars?”

“The axis of the earth is changing. This, some men have thought that man has started this and this is not true. Man has neither the power at this time nor the knowledge to do this. Therefore, the changing of thy earth shall be as a karma for Earth, and this shall happen as a protection for the souls of God [that] remain on earth, yet to return to His mansions — and for souls who have yet more lives to live on different planes in the future. These things are all necessary to offset man’s destruction of man.”

“Then you feel that all mankind will not be destroyed in this coming war?”

“This is true.”

May 1, 1970, the next time the spiritual messengers of God came, Rod asked, “What will cause this famine?”

“Man shall cause this famine.”
