Moses predicted that before the end of time the Jews would regain their homeland. Chapters 36-38 of Ezekiel describe Israel's rebirth. On May 14, 1948 the Jews returned to Palestine and formed the nation of Israel. Jesus used a parable in Luke 21:29-33 where he referred to Israel's rebirth and said that a generation shall not pass away before all things predicted in the Bible would be fullfilled. It is believed that a Biblical generation lasted for 50 years. This year on May 14th, will mark Israel's 50ieth anniversary.
Jesus warns us in Matthew 24:21-22 that man would destroy nearly everything that lives in the last days. Man has never had that ability before, but we most certainly do today. With the biochemical and thermonuclear weapons that we possess today, we could almost certainly wipe nearly every living thing off the face of this planet.
Is the prevalence of the UFOs in our skies
today, the fulfillment of Jesus' prediction in Luke 21:11 where he states
"There will be terrors and great signs from heaven"? The Greek
word for heaven can mean any of the following three things, Earth's atmosphere,
outer space, or the abode of God.
The first thing to understand is that the Jews are determined to never lose Israel again and if backed to the wall by aggressors they will fight back. Generally, they use a retribution system known as "an eye for an eye", but if it looks as though they are about to go down for good, they will not hesitate to bring their enemies down with them - even if it means launching nuclear warheads aimed at their enemy's territory.
The prevalent "anti-West" sentiments felt by the Arabs, are due in no small part to historical events that occurred within this century, when France, the UK and US carved up the Middle-East, into small countries and deposited puppet dictators at their helms. Due in no small part to the large oil reserves found in the Arabic countries there. It was their way of seizing and maintaining control of the oil reserves whilst giving the appearance that it was the Arabs who actually owned and controlled these reserves. The imperialist powers of the west, who imposed these new borders and dictators did not care about the atrocities that these newly appointed dictators committed against their own people and largely ignored all human rights violations that were being perpetrated by their puppet governments in those regions.
This sentiment currently brewing amongst the Arabic population has given rise to the Islamic "jihads" declared against the west - mainly the US, as they are the enforcers of the imperialist powers in that region.
Combine those ingredients with what happened
in the 1991 Gulf War where Iraq was nearly totally devastated by the "U.N.
forces" and the imposed sanctions that have nearly starved Iraq to
death since then. This not only leads the Arabic populations, but much
of the rest of the world's populations to feel that Iraq has been subdued
quite enough and does not need to be attacked again. If the US & UK
insist on attacking it again, there is apt to be reprisals not only from
the Arabic populations but from other countries that sympathise with Iraq's
predicament. This could trigger another world-war or as it's called in
the Bible "Armageddon".
During WWII it became obvious that this system wasn't working very well and so two economists, John Maynard Keynes of UK and Harry Dexter White of US got together in July 1944 in Bretton Woods, NH to draw up a new plan. That plan took it's name from the town where it was born.
The two main problems they had to contend with were, worldwide currency instability and indiscriminate raising of protective tariffs.
They solved the first problem by proposing fixed currency exchange rates. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank were established not only for that purpose but to provide credit to the poor and war torn nations.
To solve the second problem they created what is known as the "most favoured nation" system, allowing nations who had trouble competing internationally, to apply for the status of "most favoured nation", thereby allowing them to export to countries, without having to pay any import tariffs at it's destination. This system is a part of the "General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade" otherwise known as GATT.
The US was left to enforce the Bretton
Woods system until the early 1960s when it found it could no longer maintain
stability in the system or enforce it's rules. A number of incidents culminated
to cause this:
They decided to divide the "policing" of their new system up, between Japan, the EEU and the US. That's how the commission got it's name "Trilateral", referring to the three economic forces that enforce it.
The Trilateral Commission regulates far more than the Bretton Woods system did. According to Jeremiah Novak's statement he made on Feb. 5, 1977, "The rules cover such areas as international monetary systems, international trade in raw materials and industrial goods and use of 'commons', such as the oceans, space and the poles. These rules are seen as universally applicable and subject to sanctions in the event they are violated."
A quote appearing in an article in the July 1977 issue of the Alantic Monthly reads as follows: "Although the commission's primary concern is economic, the Trilateralists pinpointed a vital political objective: To gain control of the American presidency."
Jimmy Carter became a charter member of the commission in 1973. After he was elected president, he proceeded to pack his administration with Trilateralists. The Trilateralists also managed to pack the EEU and Japanese administrations as well.
George Bush was also a Trilateralist.
The Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek and US News and World Report publish reports minimizing the commission's influence and power. Could that be because many of the news media executives are also commission members?
The editor-in-chief of Time Magazine,
directors of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times,
Washington Post and editorial director of the Chicago Sun-Times, circa
1980 were all members of the Trilateralist Commission.
The Rockefeller Foundation financed the group's policy-making efforts.
Barry Goldwater is quoted as saying, "Since 1944 every American Secretary of State, with the exception of James F. Byrnes, has been a member of the CFR.
"I believe the CFR and it's ancillary
elitist groups are indifferent to communism. They have no ideological anchors.
In their pursuit of a new world order they are prepared to deal without
prejudice with a communist state, a socialist state, a democratic state,
monarchy, oligarchy - it's all the same to them."
They may have knowingly and purposely
or perhaps unwittingly, if we are to give them the benefit of the doubt,
set the stage for the one world political-economic system. Which in recent
times seems to fall under control of the U.N. - which is largely if not
totally controlled by the dictates of the U.S. Presidency and it's administration policies.
The ten political economic regions referenced in Revelations 17:12 says very specifically that, "the kings have recieved no kingdom as yet" implies that these leaders are not leaders of countries - or political leaders. So, my theory about these 10 kings is that they are geo-political and/or economic affiliations.
Revelations 17:5 refers to Babylon - which can be thought of as present-day Iraq, as "The Mother of Harlots".
Revelations 17:16 says that the representatives of the ten horns shall hate the whore, shall make her desolate, and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
You will note that in Revelations 12:6 there is a woman who flees into the wilderness where she is fed by God for 1,260 days or three and a half years. Then in Revelations 12:14 she is given two wings of a great eagle (ie: symbolic of the USA) where she is fed by the serpent for a time and times and half a time. A time is defined to mean a year by Biblical scholars - hence, they take this reference to the amount of time to be three and a half years. The total of this time is seven years altogether. The same time period that has elapsed between the 1991 Gulf War and our current situation.
Now, that woman is mentioned again in Revelations 17:18 where it says she reigns over the kings of the Earth, in relation to inciting the hatred and resulting devastation of "the whore" who we've already determined to be Babylon or it's country Iraq.
Later in Revelations 18:2, just 2 verses
down from Revelations 17:18, we read, "Babylon the great is fallen
is fallen" - the first fallen might refer to the devastation caused
by the 1991 Gulf War, while the second fallen probably refers to it's destruction
the second time around in the impending war.
I've already pointed out that these ten "kings" aren't really political leaders as indicated in Revelations 17:12, thus I am assuming these "kings" represent economic or some other common affiliations rather than "political" affiliations.
You will note that "GATT" the "General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade" sprung from the Trilateral Commission's work. Whilst GATT has no formal relationship with the UN, it cooperates with it and is considered part of the UN system.
The Economic and Social Council of the UN also oversees the following commissions and organizations:
The IMO Resolution 666 installs the GPS satellite tracking system as the standards for land, sea and air navigation. Is this a precursor to forcing the citizenary of Earth to accept GPS tracking devices perhaps? Will we each be forced to carry one of these on our person at all times, one day?
Those are just the organizations and committees that are directly or indirectly under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council, the UN has five other councils as well!
Once you realize what the UN controls, you begin to realize that we already have the one world government predicted in the Bible and that each and every nation on earth, has basically lost it's sovereignty to the UN. Our national leaders are all merely puppets of the UN, implementing laws and regulations to conform to the UN's wishes.
Here is the text of the UN Resolution
666: (you will note it deals with Iraq)
September 13, 1990
The Security Council,
Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,
1. Decides that in
order to make the necessary determination whether or not for the purposes
of paragraph 3 (c) and paragraph 4 of resolution 661 (1990) humanitarian
circumstances have arisen, the Committee shall keep the situation regarding
foodstuffs in Iraq and Kuwait under constant review;
VOTE: 13 for, 0 against, 2 abstentions
(Cuba and Yemen)
The following statement
is quoted from a summary of UN resolution 666.
In response to the
concern of several UN member states about possible hardships imposed on
vulnerable segments of the Iraqi CIVILIAN population resulting from sanctions
on foodstuffs, the Security Council adopted this
If you wish to see the other Resolutions dealing with Iraq visit the following link .
You will note in this resolution the UN members are tasked with ensuring that both Kuwait and Iraq have adequate food supplies and that the food supplies reach the people for whom it's intended.
You will also note it mentions they are to use the Fourth Geneva Convention as a guideline for carrying out these directives of Resolution 666. If you clicked on that link, to read the text you'd have found it's a convention dealing with the treatment of civilians during hostilities.
If you've been reading or listening to
the news at all since the end of the Gulf War you'd know that the US and
UK have been trying to block and otherwise impede any and all food or aid
destined to reach Iraq. They have intentionally been trying to starve Iraqi
citizens since 1991 in hopes that the severe economic conditions would
incite the Iraqi population to revolt and overthrow Saddam Hussein.
Violating both the Geneva Convention and the UN Resolution
666, as evidenced in the following news report:
07:06 PM ET 02/12/98
consequences of U.N. sanctions
Despite the UK's and US' attempt to starve
the Iraqis into rebellion against Saddam Hussein, causing his overthrow,
it has not worked and in 1996 Iraq signed an oil-for-food deal (as was
mentioned in the previous article) allowing them to export $1 billion worth
of oil for food every 90 days. Recently the UN augmented that amount, to
alleviate the suffering and starvation in Iraq. Now that the UN has augmented
the amount, the US and UK are trying to find a way to keep the Iraqis deprived
of this additional food, so they're planning a war. Which as evidenced
by recent reports on CNN, will make it difficult if not impossible to deliver
the food to the intended recipients, since the UN has ask the volunteers
to evacuate from Iraq. If they're not there they can't help distribute
the goods to those who need it. So has Clinton and Blair achieved their
objectives after-all, by threatening war, they've effectively cut off the
influx of food and other aid to Iraq. Technically, they don't even have
to drop a bomb now, all they have to do now is sit in the Gulf with all
their amassed troops and keep threatening to drop bombs, in order to keep
the relief workers out of Iraq.
Now I am going to explain why I am saying the US President (it's not any man in particular, but rather the man who occuppies that office) is the antichrist.
You will note the reference to the deadly head wound and also remember that JFK was shot in the head in Dallas Texas in 1963. Back in the days that John recieved these visions from God and wrote the book of Revelations, there was technically no such thing as political assassinations. Generally when emperors, kings or other types of leaders were killed it was in conquest. The conqueror would then conquer the land whilst maintaining his original title. Thus, if a king conquered the domain of an emperor, the emperor would be killed or deposed and the king would then assume control of the territory whilst maintaining his title of king.
So the fact that JFK died by a head wound, yet the American Presidency continued under Lyndon B. Johnson's leadership, denotes that "the deadly wound was healed."
The US President George Bush, bribed and coerced the Security Council and other UN members in 1991 to lead a bombing campaign against Iraq as evidenced by the following snippet from the International War Crimes Tribunal .
President Bush coerced the United Nations
Security Council into an unprecedented series of resolutions, finally securing
authority for any nation in its absolute discretion by all necessary means
to enforce the resolutions. To secure votes the U.S. paid multi-billion
dollar bribes, offered arms for regional wars, threatened and carried out
economic retaliation, forgave multi-billion dollar loans (including a $7
billion loan to Egypt for arms), offered diplomatic relations despite
human rights violations and in other ways corruptly exacted votes, creating
President Bush consistently rejected and
ridiculed Iraq's efforts to negotiate a peaceful resolution, beginning
with Iraq's August 12, 1990, proposal, largely ignored, and ending with
its mid-February 1991 peace offer which he called a "cruel hoax."
For his part, President Bush consistently insisted there would be no negotiation,
no compromise, no
Now we come to President Bill Clinton who I believe is the one described in Daniel 7:28, because he is described as not only being charismatic but also better looking than his contemporaries. It is just my opinion, but both Clinton and Blair could fit this description, although I think Clinton has more charisma than Blair, but they are both definitely better looking than any of the other current national leaders, that I've seen and know about.
In Daniel 7:25 it says he'll be a very charismatic leader who will think to change times and laws. Under Clinton's administration they enacted House Resolution 666 (text and a commentary follows) which is a very dramatic and what would be to me, if I were a US citizen a very scary example of this.
House Resolution 666
By: Jeff Head
This resolution seriously erodes the rights
of every American and is a huge step leading towards totalitarianism
and a Police State. While, if we could always be assured of totally
upright law enforcement, judges and elected officials, this bill would
be harmless, history has proven that such conditions will not exist.
In essence this bill states that police
no longer have to be restricted in gathering evidence by the rights of
the accused. In this country, allcitizens are supposed to be innocent
until proven guilty, and until such time, the God given rights are vouch
safed by the Constitution. No more. If a law officer, local,
state or federal, can say that, "the
"The fact that evidence was obtained pursuant to and within the scope of a warrant constitutes prima facie evidence of the existence of such circumstances"
This, in the opinion of the writer is a license for more Waco.s, more Ruby Ridges, etc. and presupposes that the trampling of rights is justified by any policeman, acting with any warrant. Waco and Ruby Ridge (and many less publicized events) teach us the danger in this.
Please read the following bill carefully
in light of history :
104th Congress H. R. 666 As Reported
in the House CONGRESS
H. R. 666
Daniel 7:24 says he shall subdue three kings, I ask you to consider Clinton's flouting of France's, Russia's and China's warnings to him regarding the current situation in Iraq.
If you still doubt the US Presidency is
the antichrist, ask yourself this: Which other leaders have been able to
dictate and impose their will on the UN members and Security Council
besides the US President - namely George Bush?
For a very vivid description of what the battle will be like read Isaiah chapter 13. Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 further describe the battle. According to Ezekiel 38:2-6 Russia and the countries that comprised the former USSR, Persia (which are all the Middle East countries of today), Ethiopia (or black African nations - probably Islamic), Libya, Gomer and all his bands (former Iron Curtain countries), Togarmah (South Russia) and many people with thee (indicates not all countries are named) will be the participants.
It says in Daniel 7:25 that this will go on for three and a half years.
Daniel 11:40-45 goes on to explain that at the end the Arabs and Russians will come at Israel and many countries shall be overthrown. In verse 44 it indicates that tidings out of the north and the east shall trouble him. I am assuming that the east might refer either to Europe or China (depending on how you delineate East here). The north, I'm not sure of, because quite frankly, I don't know of any countries north of Russia - unless you go right over the top of the pole to North America.
Russia's motives might be to not only protect Iraq from the injustices inflicted on it by the US and allies, but to also capture and secure the Gulf region oil supplies and incapacitate Israel, the only nuclear power in the region.
In Zechariah 14:12 it implies that all the nations that fight against Israel will have thermonuclear bombs dropped on them.
According to Revelations 9:16 there will be an amassed force(s) of troops numbering 200 million, who as indicated in Revelations 9:15 will wind up killing off one third of all mankind.
Eventually China will become involved in the war, moving into the area of the Euphrates (Iraq), as described in Revelations 16:12.
It appears as though five out of the seven fallen kings mentioned in Revelations 7:10 could mean that five out of the seven continents will be laid waste by this war. It goes on to say, that after they have fallen there is one more king to come, but he's only given a short time.
