This morning, I opened my email and found a copy of the following article in my inbox.


WND EXCLUSIVE

The Armenian Genocide and my grandmother’s secret

‘A distant signal was given – it sounded something like a trumpet

To me, the title was terribly horrifying and fearful;  yet at the same time also intriguing. I wanted to know what David Kupelian’s grandmother had told him regarding this “secret” and the “signal of something like a trumpet.”

Never in my wildest dreams did I think such an article would hit me SO HARD, that I became, quite frankly, speechless!

Later on, I went back to the article to read the comments there. They varied in scope, but many reiterated the truth of the matter regarding how people can be mind-controlled and taken in by such evil that they would do such horrendous atrocities against people with whom they formerly were “friendly.”

It is difficult to just “excerpt” the article here, but I will share a few beginning paragraphs.

Decades ago when I was very young, my grandmother, Mary Kupelian, told me a haunting story I’ve wondered about ever since.

As I sat in the kitchen of her cozy little home in Bethesda, Maryland, eating her delicious homemade bread and talking about a frequent topic – the Armenian Genocide, which she and my dad (as a little boy) had barely survived – she shared with me the following enigma.

“The Turkish people are very hospitable people,” she said with surprising warmth, seeing as they had murdered her husband and dozens of other members of her extended family, just a few of the 1.5 million Christian Armenians killed by the Turks during the first genocide of the 20th century. Grandmom knew the Turkish people well, not just from having grown up in southern Turkey, but from having returned several times to the “old country” later in life, during more quiescent times.

However, continuing her story, she intimated to me that the Muslim Turks lived under the spell of strange forces.

“They were very hospitable and would invite you in,” she said. “But, if a distant signal was given – it sounded something like a trumpet – then they would instantly change, and would attempt to harm you. Yet if the signal sounded again, they would immediately switch back to normal.”

“Even,” she added by way of illustration, “if they had injured you after the first signal, as soon as the second signal sounded, they would bind up the very wounds they had inflicted on you.”

As I said – a very, very strange tale, with overtones of “The Manchurian Candidate” and its post-hypnotic suggestions (remember the Queen of Diamonds?) triggering murderous, pre-programmed behavior.

That story, so pregnant with hidden significance, has remained gestating in my mind for all these decades since my grandmother matter-of-factly shared it with me over her kitchen table. It has piqued my interest especially in recent years, as I have endeavored in my writing to sort out and make some sense of a world so powerfully controlled by dark forces.

Since today, April 24, 2015, officially marks the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, let’s delve into my grandmother’s mystery story and see where it leads.

It is VERY important that each one of you read it all! You will be shaken…I guarantee it! The content is gripping! The photos are alarming! The where-with-all of Kupelian’s grandmother in the midst of such evil and suffering is truly brave, courageous and commendable!

But the conclusion of the article will – quite frankly – stun you! I was stunned…and cannot even comment completely on it yet!

It may stir your mind (as it did mine!) in ways that previously may have been viewed (by me) as just “words on a page” when it comes to “forgiving those who trespass against us!”

It connects the first verse with the following verses (spoken by Jesus Himself) in such a way that informs us why Jesus said, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they are doing” as he was nailed to the cross!

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12
 
 Mat 5:44

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, [fn]

Mat 5:45

“that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Luk 6:27

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

Luk 6:28

“bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

Luk 6:35

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.

For now, I want to encourage all who visit here to read the entire article over at WND. Here is the link, again:

P.S.  Just wanted to share two comments from WND on this topic:

The Watchman • 5 hours ago

When people turn their backs and reject God, they also reject the light that smothers the darkness. I am afraid that the darkness is prevailing over the light, as the darkness has been invited where once the light was dominant. Only the Lord can smother the darkness again. He will most certainly destroy the darkness, so it is written, and God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank you for sharing this factual and true story. I pray God opens the eyes and unblocks the deaf ears and breaks the hard hearts of the people in this world and those who read this article and through it, convicts them and leads them to Salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.

What does it take to begin a relationship with God? Devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds? Become a better person so that God will accept you?

You may be surprised that none of those things will work. But God has made it very clear in the Bible how we can know Him.

The following principles will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with God, right now, through Jesus Christ…
