COMING COLLAPSE UPDATE FOR AMERICA

SHARE THIS FOR THE GOOD OF OTHERS, BECAUSE WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR ALL HUMANITY CANNOT BE CHANGED

I’ve posted a couple of articles that have a loose connection to the ongoing push off the economic cliff. The question is continually asked “Where’s the collapse?” Of course it is only those who are still fully employed and have money in the bank that ask that. The 95 million working age people who do not have full time jobs don’t need to ask, nor do those 45% of people paying at least 50% of their income on credit card debt.

Now comes Puerto Rico. They are about to declare bankruptcy. One might say that they don’t live in Puerto Rico, so what do they care? When any entity defaults on a 73 billion dollar debt, it doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There are many funds invested in that debt. At the very least those funds will encounter loses that will be passed down to individual investors. At the worst, some of those funds may themselves go bankrupt, thus sucking down individuals. This also may start a cascade involving others.

The third article covers a theory on the many Trump flip flops. In that article the author theorizes that Trump may be anticipating a much larger event, possibly an economic collapse.

Who knows about that, but there can be no doubt that it is coming. The only question is when. We are in uncharted territory. The whole world is involved in this economic Ponzi scheme, so it is taking longer than one would think, but that is countered by the prospect that the whole world will be in this depression. The bottom line is, there is nothing Trump or anyone else can do to stop this. All they can do is to keep trying to plug the leaks as fast as they come until it no longer can be done. My advice has not changed. Stock up — food, water filtration, medical supplies, guns and ammunition and whatever else you can think of that you need to carry in your day to day life.

It is better to be 10 years early than one day late.

Puerto Rico is set to file the largest public sector bankruptcy in history after vulture capitalist hedge funds that bought big pieces of the island’s $73 billion in defaulted debt for pennies-on the-dollar refused to take $24 billion haircut.

The U.S. territory made its last-ditch offer to try to avoid a May 1 bankruptcy filing, but failed to negotiate a financial restructuring that would force creditors to take a 23 percent loss on their general obligation bonds and a 42 percent loss on their Cofina sales-tax-backed debt, according to EMMA, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board website.

45% Of Americans Spend Up To Half Their Income Repaying Credit Card Debts

First, roughly 50% of Americans have debt balances, excluding mortgages mind you, of over $25,000, with the average person owing over $37,000, versus a median personal income of just over $30,000. 

The real reasons why Trump has flipped on his campaign promises

Back in December of 2016 I wrote an article titled Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him, which I think was very difficult for a large part of the liberty movement to read and accept. In that article I outlined the future of the Trump presidency; a future dominated by Washington insiders, Goldman Sachs internationalists and Neo-Con warmongers. Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving.

A major war is brewing strongly regarding Korea and other nations as written signs of the times in Matthew 24 and many other books in the Bible that will take millions of lives. Then shall be great famine in America and worldwide filled with believers and people everywhere turning against each other, violence, hate, looting, killing, rape, child abuse, earthquakes, and many other calamities through the great 31/2 year affliction coming from all direction upon people in America and this entire world civilization being totally unprepared mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Let’s read what the EXP version says on the subject of what you just read:

Jesus Yeshua answered, “·Be careful [Watch out] that no one ·fools [misleads; deceives] you. Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the ·Christ [meaning they represent the Messiah],’ and they will ·fool [mislead; deceive] many people. You will hear about wars and ·stories of wars that are coming [rumors/reports of wars], but don’t be ·afraid [alarmed]. These things must happen ·before the end comes [or but that is not yet the end]. Nations will ·fight [L rise up] against other nations, and kingdoms against other kingdoms. There will be ·times when there is no food for people to eat [famines], and there will be earthquakes in ·different [various] places. All these things are ·like the first pains when something new is about to be born [L the beginning of the birth pains].

“Then people will arrest you, hand you over to be ·hurt [persecuted; tortured], and kill you. ·They [The world; L All nations] will hate you because ·you believe in me [you follow me; L of my name]. At that time, many will ·lose their faith [turn/fall away], and they will ·turn against [betray] each other and hate each other. Many false prophets will ·come [appear; arise] and ·cause many people to believe lies [deceive many]. There will be more and more ·evil [sin; lawlessness] in the world, so ·most people will stop showing their love for each other [L the love of many/most will grow cold]. Matthew 24:4-13 (EXB)

Today’s misled Christianity will be amongst those worldwide that take part in the celebration and giving of gifts when the two witnesses in Revelation 11 have been killed by the antichrist.

As for this world Christian Israelites that remained genuine through the entire affliction.

“But those people who ·keep their faith [endure; stand firm; persevere] until the end will be saved. ·The Good News [This Gospel] about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, [L as a testimony] to every nation. Then the end will come. Matthew 24:14

Let’s now gain a better and more clear explanation of who the two witnesses really are rather than all the false misleading belief Satan’s ministers spread worldwide.

“These two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth [C reminiscent of Zerubbabel and Joshua whom God used to build the second temple in spite of opposition; Zech. 4:2–6]. And if anyone ·tries [wants] to ·hurt [harm; damage] them, fire comes from their mouths and ·kills [consumes; devours] their enemies [Jer. 5:14]. And if anyone ·tries [wants] to ·hurt [harm; damage] them in whatever way, in that same way that person ·will [or must] die. These witnesses have the ·power [authority] to ·stop the sky [close the heavens] from raining during the time they are prophesying [1 Kin. 17:1]. And they have ·power [authority] to make the waters become blood [8:816:3–4Ex. 7:17–21], and they have ·power [authority] to send every kind of ·trouble [plague] to the earth as many times as they want.

When the two witnesses have finished ·telling their message [giving their witness/testimony], the beast [C probably the Antichrist; 13:117:8Dan. 7] that comes up from the ·bottomless pit [Abyss; 9:1] will fight a war against them. He will ·defeat [conquer] them and kill them. The ·bodies [corpses] of the two witnesses will lie in the ·street [public square; C to be left unburied as a sign of disdain] of the great city where the Lord was ·killed [L crucified; C Jerusalem, perhaps here symbolic of the world’s opposition to God]. ·This city is named Sodom and Egypt, which has a spiritual meaning [L …which is figuratively/symbolically/spiritually called Sodom and Egypt; C Jerusalem is symbolically named after places judged by God for wickedness (Sodom/America) and for oppressing God’s people (Egypt); Gen. 19Ex. 7—12]. Those from every race of people, tribe, language, and nation will look at the bodies of the two witnesses [the 144,000 are the two witnesses] for three and one-half days, and they will ·refuse to bury them [L not let them be placed in a tomb]. People who live on the earth will rejoice and ·be happy [celebrate] because these two are dead. They will send each other gifts, because these two prophets brought much ·suffering [torment] to those who live on the earth.

But after [L the] three and one-half days, ·Elohim put the breath of life into the two prophets again [L a breath/spirit of life from God entered them; Gen. 2:7]. They stood on their feet, and everyone who saw them became very afraid. Then the two prophets heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Come up here!” And they went up into heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched.

In the same hour there was a ·great [violent] earthquake, and a tenth of the city ·was destroyed [collapsed; L fell]. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and those who did not die were very afraid and gave glory to the Elohim of heaven [Ezek. 38:19–20Zech. 14:4].

The second ·trouble [L woe] is finished. ·Pay attention [Look; T Behold]: The third ·trouble [L woe] is coming ·soon [quickly; 8:13]. Revelation 11:4:14

What is the true identity of the two witnesses?

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-2/

I have been warning many for years through my 16 websites, published book, and over one thousand lengthy writings based on scripture and this world’s reality on what is coming with reason why, yet none, no, not one really cares about today’s atrocities upon all civilization from the yoke of incapable human rule, nor hear truth on why these things must be. Psalms 14:2-3

I have written so very many times on how those in affliction that have done well towards others shall receive basic necessities according to the same measure in their help for others in need when they had the means – but for those living selfishly, coveting worldly and material items that shall perish, there will be no mercy, but rather harsh judgment on this earth, and in the millennial resurrection for the sheep and goats of greed.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-millennial-resurrections/

Because all people believe only what they choose, all that can be done is to deliver a message few will hear just as Ezekiel chapter 2; therefore, those looking only above for direction while being no part of worldly ways just accept difficult circumstance in this life along with false brethren and never any help for just basic needs like a good meal, stove, or small plot of land for a bamboo hut to give my wife and I some needed peace, rest, and pleasure being away from the noise of any populated area.

Below through one link sharing a little on who I also contain some other links on what is happening on this earth accompanied with the way of spiritual education that I have been seeking, working at, and learning from our creator through being dissociated with all human philosophy, beliefs, religions, governments, and human education of this world being totally blind to the only true source being the spiritual input coming from not of this world, but rather the 3rd heaven where Yehovah Elohim is on His throne of eternity with Yeshua by His side.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION??

100_3383

First and most important is knowing there is hundreds of millions websites, and hundreds of millions blogs/writings/articles/books covering all subjects in one way or another; so how is it possible for any to know who is right and who is wrong?

None, no, not one of this world through being affiliated in any worldly ways have spiritual understanding or obedience according to scripture not believed nor understood such as Revelation 12:9,  Job 15:15-16, Psalms 14:2-3, Isaiah 59:1-4, and much more concerning this world of Israelite – Christianity; and that includes those living by eternal law regarding 7th day Sabbath, Feasts, clean foods, and more according to The Torah being the only way to please YHVH, yet most all still remain walking in unseen darkness via false light as in having no love with deed for others, such as my wife and I living in many of life’s difficulties through these past 10 years — but rather all loving themselves and things of this world which makes knowing YHVH in spirit and truth totally impossible — so says the Holy Bible through scripture with instruction never taught by wolves in sheep’s clothing, or completely ignored by all reading words for their walk in this life..

There is an answer for what is right, but only few will spiritually comprehend its meaning of becoming disassociated with this world – therefore no longer a part while seeking direction from not of this world. . .

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. (John 15:19)

Would you like better understanding of the verse just read?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/RJP16w/how-christians-lacking-spiritual-knowledge-hate-god

Because I have never been a church member in my life of 61 years, I am teachable to Yehovah via 27 years of private study – thus my brain circuits have not become corrupted through putting trust in myself nor humankind beliefs which only mislead; and because of that faith, trust, and living this past decade with many hardships through lacking basic need as just regular meals — and being detested by this world of Christianity that offers no help in any way – reason is because they lack fruits as instructed in the Bible. For example – John 13:34, 14:21, Matthew 22:36-40, 25:31-46, Luke 6:36-46, 1 John 3:15-20, 4:7-8, 20-21 — therefore will be thrown into the fires of affliction without mercy as written in John 15:1-6, and when resurrection for judgement comes, they all will be judged as the selfish goats not allowed to be in the millennial kingdom.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-millennial-resurrections/

I therefore follow this instruction:

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. If then you have been raised with Yeshua [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Yeshua is, seated at the right hand of Yehovah Elohim. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Yeshua in Elohim. When Yeshua, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory.   (Proverbs 3:5-6, Colossians 3:1-4)

When an entire human race becomes nothing but controlled pawns within our dying civilization, which is also Satan’s Kingdom, all that any know is what their natural mind chooses (1 Corinthians 2:14) according to what has been planted in their thoughts while continually being fed lies, mislead, and themselves feeling secure as knowing all needed; when in truth, every individual of this world being near 7.5 billion have been sucked into the vortex of what is coming as the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this earth, which according to all the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) is almost upon America, and all great nations worldwide bringing much affliction for 3 1/2 years — until the antichrist appears doing great miracles to make all things seem right, with today’s Christianity included, so that he is worshiped by all worldwide as God — only to bring 3 1/2 years great tribulation, death, and destruction everywhere upon earth.

So how can we know exactly where humanity now stands as believers?

“While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?  Yeshua answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].  (Matthew 24:3-4)

First of all comes one main fact not believed, and that is because noone on this earth being of this world, including billions of Bible believers, will accept these words of scripture with themselves included. . .

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. Revelation 12:9

If you genuinely want to know Satan’s purpose for his earthy kingdom . . .

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/

If only humankind could remove eyes from themselves, they would first see our world of division, and then what is really happening to civilization worldwide followed with what has been done to rivers, lakes, oceans, soil, air, and even the junkyard in orbit; and when added there is no end to all the atrocities committed against our human race since the beginning, and during these end times comes massive population reduction as part of the plan for the new world order. Study the Georgia Guidestones in the vigilantcitizen link below for unreported breaking news of old most are unaware of.

“For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Yeshua (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. (verse 5)

What you just read above represents this entire world of false religion known as Christianity that has uncountable different doctrines, spirits, images, beliefs, traditions, wrongly titled names being God and Jesus Christ, and much more having nothing to do with truth; and I have always been just as guilty through using the same names as billions – until Yehovah (YHVH ELOHIM) made clear the importance of knowing not only His personal name, but also Yeshua HaMashiach our world saviour through verses never taught or even discussed in today’s Christianity. Proverbs 30:4, Psalms 9:10, John 17:6, 17:26, and many more when any genuine believer will actually study to show themselves approved. (2 Timothy 2:15)

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/XL6Xml/how_could_an_entire_human_race_actually_be_deceived

Below shares some information on proper names – but what is most important is our search with desire to know what all worldly know not — such as loving others through more than meaningless words having no works, not using mistranslated names for our eternal creator Yehovah and Yeshua, keeping all commandments, and thus becoming worthy as firstfruits through obedience for great never ending reward. (Revelation 5:10)

This link. . .

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ljD9ZQ/vital-untaught-truth-in-all-religions-worldwide

Contains near 200 pages using scripture on just how YHVH views all shepherds, preachers, pastors, ministers, reverends, bishops, prophets, and all religious titles including the Pope along with how He labels congregations worldwide — and truth from the Bible is not pleasing to this world of so-called Christians talking religious talk while not walking their instructed walk as doers of the word, rather than hearers only deceiving themselves.

And know also there is no religious leaders within the buildings of man, falsely called churches, worldwide where Satan dwells that will tell you truth going against them, or why Christians should love others as themselves being the royal law they all ignore. (James 1:22-25, 2:8, 13-26) Also in this reading is how those obedient will gain YHVH’s mercy during affliction.

“Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield. For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name. So then He has mercy on whomever He wills (chooses) and He hardens (makes stubborn and unyielding the heart of) whomever He wills.I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.  (Psalms 33:18-21, Romans 9:18, Jeremiah 17:10)

Back to Matthew 24

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place; All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].  Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. (verses 6-9)

This world has always had many wars, conflicts, violence, famine, and much shed blood; however, just as our population has increased, so has human knowledge (Daniel 12:4) for weapons with nuclear, biological, and chemical included for mass extermination – thus leaving this world of wars, rebel violence, drug cartels, human trafficking, slavery, racial hate, genocide, torture, great suffering, famine, drought, earthquakes, and much more disaster — being end time prophecy — accompanied with much evil upon a blinded world of innocent people that have never had any proper rule based on laws of love with peace and unity – rather than what Satan represents being lies, hate, wars, and death.

 “And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error. And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, (verses 10-12)

Because our world civilization has always been more unstable than water, and because all beliefs, religions, and Christianity have never been taught truth on their own coming destiny having no safety, no rapture, and no escape — massive and very extreme suffering is coming upon a human race totally unprepared — therefore, through years of affliction, deception, and mislead, multitudes of Israelite Christians will believe the antichrist has been the cause of all their suffering through strong delusion. . .

“The coming of the [Antichrist, the lawless] one is through the activity of Satan, [attended] with great power [all kinds of counterfeit miracles] and [deceptive] signs and false wonders [all of them lies], and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all the deception of wickedness for those who are perishing, because they did not welcome the love of the truth [of the gospel] so as to be saved [they were spiritually blind, and rejected the truth that would have saved them]. Because of this God will send upon them a misleading influence, [an activity of error and deception] so they will believe the lie, (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)

Therefore, today’s misled world of Christianity will be among this world’s joy when the witnesses in Revelation have been killed, and lie three and a half days. Read Revelation 11:7-4, and then for a better understanding, this link below to learn who those two witnesses really are.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-2/

So what exactly do these following words mean?

But he who endures to the end will be saved. (Verse 13)

Isaiah 6 Revelation 6 002Isaiah 6 and Revelation 6 means to endure regardless of circumstance that has taken multitudes by surprise and without warning; and all because this world of shepherds teach not truth as made clear in scripture; therefore even with years of what I study through prayer to deliver — scorpions hear not what YHVH speaks. (Ezekiel 2 KJV)

Those under persecutions and afflictions, holding fast their faith even though it leads to the martyr’s death, – will have earned whatever their position may be within the millennial kingdom according to their fruits.  So become wise and know that all Christian Israelite’s must not be led astray by false teachers nor offended by the prevalence of lies, wickedness, immorality, greed, dishonesty, or hate – while through faith retaining their love for YHVH, and understanding why these things must be.

And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end. (Matthew 24:14)

Who will become the teacher preachers spreading news of the coming kingdom worldwide during great tribulation?

THE KINGDOM OF SATAN IS EARTH

What is most important for all to become aware of is how Satan is god of this world; therefore wants all to love themselves, their church, or whatever any human being on this earth may direct their belief towards, which includes all that worship him as Satan being the world ruler – because just as human governments – once he has gotten his use from any that have been misled into his world of evil – they will become exterminated through many ways of death. Therefore know that this is no religious sermon filled with wrong direction, and that is because all religions, including Christianity have also been misled, therefore loved by congregations through smooth sound good words worldwide that pay tithes for lies. So now, according to the signs of the times in Matthew 24:4-13 and Revelation 6 beginning to magnify worldwide – truth on just how powerful Satan truly is – is being presented for those wanting to know their own future through these coming years.

What could possibly be more important than reality as it truly is? or do you prefer the father of lies all believe in unknown ways? So decide in your own mind to make a secure appointment for just sitting back, reading, and absorbing the most valuable words that you will ever be confronted with: because they contain human destiny in ways not known, taught, understood, or believed – because humankind teaches differently than our creator.

From the start, know also even though this is an excellent writing, I have made very few changes being from God and Jesus Christ to YHVH, Yehovah Elohim, and Yeshua HaMashiach, also did away with only once or twice when the false Trinity was mentioned, also the rapture being another mislead hundreds of millions have been led into believing. In addition the eternal suffering in the fires of hell being another false belief as if our all knowing creator also loves placing eternal torture on billions.

At the end, for any wanting additional truth not taught, links provide many answers such as who I am, my only purpose in this life, and what it means to live own faith through putting no trust in humankind for help or even just basic needs.

LET THE TRUTH BEGIN

“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).

Beyond the world of phenomena is the real world – the unseen world – from which great and decisive influences emanate with an impact on all people’s lives. Since humans also have a spirit, they are conscious of the spirit world and receptive to communication from it. The immense importance of spiritual influences necessitates a sound knowledge of spiritual realities. Even if people wish to ignore these realities they are nonetheless profoundly affected by it. The two great realities in the spirit world are the Kingdom of Yehovah Elohim [God] and the kingdom of Satan.

These two kingdoms are in opposition to one another, contending for the souls of people and preparing to reveal themselves on earth. The kingdom of Satan will send the Antichrist to physically rule the world, while the kingdom of YHVH Elohim will send the true Yeshua HaMashiach, [not the human title Jesus Christ] to destroy the earthly kingdom of Satan and set up His millennial kingdom.

All the people of Elohim Most High are engaged in a struggle against the devil who is the great adversary of YHVH. It is critically important that we understand the principles and strategies of Satan’s kingdom in order to prevail in the struggle.

  1. THE REALITY OF THE BATTLE AGAINST SATAN

The spiritual battle against evil forces is a very real one, and it is intensified as we approach the end of this dispensation. It confronts us with the responsibility to thoroughly understand the objectives and methods of the enemy. There are different spheres in which this struggle is waged. The most important battlefield is human lives that were created in the image of YHVH God. Satan’s attacks on the kingdom of light are aimed at dethroning our Most High Elohim and enthroning himself as the ruler of the universe. In the process, he aims at controlling all people, spirit soul and body, and at being worshiped by them as if he were YHVH.

There are various forms and degrees of control that Satan presently has over people, and his final objective is to further expand this control. The Bible says that “the whole world lieth in wickedness” (1 Jn. 5:19). However, the kingdom of YHVH also has established interests here and a considerable number of followers on earth, but they are a minority in a predominantly evil world.

Despite this situation, YHVH still has undisputed sovereignty in the universe. But in His eternal counsels, He decided to give to man the authority to subdue the earth and have dominion over it (Gen. 1:28). By yielding to Satan’s temptation in the Garden of Eden to rebel against YHVH, our first parents died spiritually and became subservient to another god – the devil. In this way, the devil and his fallen angels became “the rulers of the darkness of this world”.

Fallen humankind was now confronted by two kingdoms – the kingdom of YHVH Elohim and the kingdom of Satan. A free will to decide for themselves to which kingdom they want to belong would be the deciding factor whether spiritual light or darkness would prevail on the earth, or specific parts of it. The wrong inclinations and unrepentant hearts of the majority of people is the reason why believers everywhere find themselves “in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom [they] shine as lights in the world” (Phil. 2:15).

By deliberately living in darkness and sin, the great majority of people are the objects of YHVH’s judgements: “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (Jn. 3:19).

The majority support that the kingdom of darkness enjoys on earth is the reason why the Bible refers to “this present evil world” from which YHVH wants to deliver us (Gal. 1:4). The large masses that tread the broad way that leads to death and destruction are those “in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not” (2 Cor. 4:4). The god of this dark world is Satan. In John 14:30 Yeshua refers to him as “the prince of this world.”

But Satan does not rule over Christians as he has been dethroned in their lives. “The Son of YHVH was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 Jn. 3:8). Although being set free from the control of the Evil One, Christians are nevertheless engaged in the fierce battle that is waged against the kingdom of light. That is why the Bible emphatically commands us: “Put on the whole armour of Elohim, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Eph. 6:11).

Satan’s attacks are not aimed at the people who are already in his power, as he oppresses and manipulates them at will. His attacks are aimed at the believers who oppose him and have committed themselves to help other people to be liberated from the powers of darkness. As such, the Christians have also declared war against him: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Elohim to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of Elohim, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Yeshua wrongly known as Christ” (2 Cor. 10:3-5).

  1. WARS OF SATAN AGAINST THE KINGDOM OF ELOHIM

Satan applies different strategies in his war against the kingdom of Elohim. His ultimate purpose is to gain absolute control and to establish a fully-fledged satanic world order in all spheres of life. He obviously realizes that time is running out for him and is now dramatically increasing the severity of his attacks. The different wars that he is waging are the following:

2.1 Religious war

It is a high priority of Satan to deceive people spiritually, thereby gaining control over their lives. Various methods are employed to achieve this objective, all of which are aimed at eroding faith in YHVH and replacing it with superstitions, or at supporting and perpetuating the superstitions and false religions of the deceived people:

False prophets

In his most disguised form, Satan attacks the church of Yeshua by infiltrating it with false prophets who pretend to be apostles of Yeshua. 1 John 4:1 says that “many false prophets are gone out into the world.” The Bible also reveals that, “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness” (2 Cor. 11:14-15). They utterly distort the Word of Elohim and also falsify it by way of new translations that deviate from the original text. A false Christian church is a powerful tool in the hands of Satan to deceive nominal Christians into believing that they are saved and heading for heaven, while it is not the case. Millions of naïve people expose themselves to damnable heresies without putting them to the test by discerning, in terms of Biblical principles, the spiritual powers that are at work in the preaching, in the ‘religious shows’ and in the literature that are presented to them.

False religions

In a more direct way, humanity is deceived by the non-Christian religions to worship idols that are disguised demons. The Bible says that the idols to which the heathens sacrifice, are demons (1 Cor. 10:19-20). Anyone participating in these sacrifices has fellowship with demons. The heathens do not know that Satan has deceived them. Neither do compromising, liberal, and ecumenical Christian churches realise these dangers, as they subscribe to the false idea that all religions worship the same Elohim. Multireligious deception proliferates in our time and amounts to a complete denial of the unique position of Yeshua HaMashiach as the only Saviour of the world. The ecumenical ‘Christians’ should endeavour to become more aware of the activities of the god of this world who blinds the minds of people so that they do not see the truth.

Occult powers

A still more ostensible revelation of Satan is by means of occult or mystical practices. He still does not associate it openly with his name and his kingdom so that people may be more easily deceived into becoming unfaithful to YHVH. The power of Satan is marketed and promoted by way of the New Age Movement, the Human Potential Movement, and related occult and mystical practices such as spiritual channeling, shamanism, magical powers, transcendental meditation, yoga, fortune-telling, psychic powers, astral projection, holistic healing, extrasensory perception, clairvoyance, etc. People are influenced to open themselves up to these powers and cosmic wisdom, and to freely draw on these resources. Eastern meditation is one of the most popular methods of effecting an altered state of consciousness, which leads to an openness to occult powers, cosmic wisdom, spirit guides and demons.

Satanism

The direct revelation of Satan can, because of the inherent repulsiveness of the idea, only be made to highly deceived, morally decadent, and spiritually degenerate people. In the past, these direct revelations were confined to small groups of people, but during the past two decades their numbers have vastly increased in the world. To these worshippers, Satan and his demons reveal themselves in all their abomination, vileness and bloodthirstiness. They demand animal or human sacrifices from their worshippers, as well as the murdering of certain persons.

2.2 War against moral values

The moral norms which Yehovah Elohim has established through His laws and precepts, and which the human conscience should acknowledge as right and good, are continually questioned, challenged, and broken down by Satan. Moral decline is promoted by demons. This is done with a view to replacing YHVH’s morality in the world by the opposite values of a satanic immorality. These two sets of values can be contrasted as follows:

GOD’S MORALITY SATAN’S IMMORALITY
Truth Lie
Righteousness Unrighteousness
Self-control Lawlessness
Honesty Deceitfulness and theft
Moral chastity Moral depravity and vileness
Soberness Drunkenness
Sincerity Slyness
Reverence to God Blaspheming of God
Orderliness Disorderliness
Meekness Arrogance
Peacefulness Violence
Forgivingness Revengefulness
Love Hate
Kindness Cruelty
Conservation Destruction

Satan knows that with his war against moral values he can achieve a great victory in the control and eventual destruction of humankind. The Roman Empire, for instance, was never defeated by military force but destroyed itself by way of internal moral decay. Sexual orgies, drunkenness, fornication, homosexuality, materialism, corruption, theft, and bribery gave rise to one scandal after another. Widespread immorality completely ruined the integrity and effectiveness of the governments in Rome and Constantinople.

The apostle James also contrasts the morality of YHVH with the moral depravity of a fallen world that lies in the sway of the Evil One:

“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good [conduct] his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, develish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” (Jas. 3:13-18).

Under the cloak of humanistic reforms the world is, over a wide front, being drawn into a demonic immorality. When this process has advanced far enough the Antichrist, as the man of sin, will be revealed. He will be the leading figure in the new world order’s culture of sin. He will act according to his own will (Dan. 11:36), rule by means of satanic powers (Rev. 13:2), blaspheme God (Rev. 13:5-6), will, together with Satan, be worshipped by a morally and religiously utterly depraved human race (Rev. 13:4), be a tyrant and mass-murderer (Dan. 11:44), and order the execution of all people who refuse to worship him as god (Rev. 13:15).

2.3 Psychological war

A psychological war is also waged against humanity by inducing people to stop relying only on rational thinking which is based on logical facts. They are influenced to discover and use their hidden psychological potential by switching over from their rational ‘left brain’ to their creative ‘right brain’. Here they will discover a super memory, powers of self-healing, the ‘gifts’ of clairvoyance, telepathy, etc. These discoveries are allegedly associated with a hitherto unknown side of our human potential, referred to as the deeper self or the higher self. The extra-sensory techniques used to affect such a switchover are mainly transcendental meditation, self-hypnosis and yoga.

Various psychics, psychologists, and deluded ‘Christian’ counselors are guiding people in this new self-discovery that helps them to attain altered states of consciousness. Some of them discover their deeper self; others discover spirit guides that help them to regress to earlier lives, while others discover their abilities towards self-healing, etc. However, these ‘gifts’ and other discoveries are clearly mystical and demonic in nature. In doing so, people relinquish all forms of self-control by subjecting themselves to higher powers, they open themselves up to the working of unknown spiritual agents, and move into a cosmic realm in which ‘gifts’ are experienced that are clearly not from YHVH. They abandon all logical and rational arguments from the Bible, and thereby render proof that the god of this world (Satan) has indeed blinded their minds (2 Cor. 4:4).

The victims of Satan’s psychological war all think and act differently than before. Apart from their reliance on higher spiritual powers of unknown origin, most of them develop an entirely new world-view. They see everything as one (monism, or synthetic thinking), for instance, the inherent unity of all religions. They no longer subscribe to antithetic thinking in which distinction is made between opposite categories of things such as the kingdom of Elohim and the kingdom of the devil, the lie and the truth, etc. Satan’s world government (Rev. 13:3, 7) and his alliance of world religions (Rev. 17:3-5) will be perfectly acceptable to them.

2.4 Social war

As the Creator of human beings, YHVH also laid down rules for social identity and group forming to ensure the orderly functioning of social groups. Satan also relentlessly attacks these institutions in an effort to sow disorder and chaos.

YHVH created humans as male and female, with different characteristics and social roles assigned to each sex. Their appearance, conduct, dresses and hairstyles should reflect and conform to these differences. The men should in all respects be truly masculine and the females truly feminine. Satan tries to eliminate these differences through unisex reforms and endeavors to establish homosexuality as an alternative and socially acceptable lifestyle. Under his influence, society is also restructured on a non-sexist basis with a view to introducing uniform roles for all individuals irrespective of gender. Because YHVH appointed the man as head over his wife, resulting in a paternalistic society, Satan employs humanism and radical feminism to give impetus to his egalitarian reforms.

Cultural differences among various societies are also minimized by superimposing universally acceptable trends and institutions on groups with a strong sense of identity – the aim being to erode their patriotism and transform their members into planetary citizens. These reforms, in which national and ethnic identity are denied, form the basis of the neo-Babylonian world society of the future. In that society, any ideology can be subscribed to, any religion can be practiced, any type of marriage may be practiced (e.g. same sex) or none, and no moral norms are enforced. When this stage has been reached in the demonic war against YHVH’s standards for individuals, groups, and nations, Satan will have achieved his objective of creating cultural chaos and a lack of identity among human beings.

2.5 Economic war

In the kingdom of darkness, money and capital goods are regarded as very important means to control people’s lives. With it people can be controlled, bribed and induced to do things that they otherwise might not have done. The mere desire to become rich in material terms gives rise to a form of idolatry. The god of money is Mammon, which is one of the descriptive names of the devil. According to the Bible you cannot serve Elohim and Mammon at the same time (Mt. 6:24).

Satan clearly prepares to make full use of the power of money in the end-time. According to Revelation 13, the Antichrist will be in control of a cashless monetary system for the whole world, operated by a number system. Nobody will be able to buy or sell without this number.

Not only individuals, but also nations, will be economically controlled by a future world government headed by the Antichrist. Economic subservience to global economic structures, like the IMF and World Bank at present, will contribute towards the loss of national sovereignty.

2.6 Political war

Satan is clearly also engaged in a political war against humanity. YHVH’s order for human communities is based on the principle of sovereign nations, each with its own government and territory. According to Acts 17:26, YHVH determined the boundaries of their habitation. Satan’s first rebellion against the existing order of independent nations was the motivating force behind the establishing of the ancient Babylonian Empire and the building of the tower of Babylon. This effort was aimed at political, religious, economic, and linguistic unity on earth (Gen. 11:4-6). The Babylonian ideology of globalism was wrong in the eyes of the YHVH; consequently He confused their plans and forced the participating nations to move away and follow an independent existence without domination by a world empire.

The devil never relinquished his plans for an alternative order of global political domination of the nations. Various world empires were established through the ages. They all oppressed and exploited the nations, imposed a heathen religion on them, and also undermined other cultures by enforcing cultural and linguistic conformity to their own institutions. Some of the efforts to establish such world empires were unsuccessful, for instance that of Hitler in World War II.

Whenever Satan makes an attempt in this direction he prepares a suitable strongman who rises to a position of political leadership, to the extent that he becomes a military dictator who conquers and subjects other nations. Through the expansion of his empire he then becomes a world leader. Such power was always abused by inducing or forcing people to rebel against YHVH by bowing the knee to man-made idols. Due to their inherent immorality, corruption, and oppression of other nations, all these empires eventually collapsed.

According to the Bible Satan will, before the Second Coming, use all his means to once more overthrow YHVH’s order of independent nations by incorporating them into a new world order of international political, religious, economic, social, and linguistic unity. The man that he has chosen to head the new world order is called the Antichrist, the beast, and the man of sin in the Bible. The world empire that he will establish will be a repetition of the Babylonian Empire of Nimrod and Nubuchadnezzar. For that reason, the end-time world empire is quite aptly called Babylon in Revelation 17 and 18.

Like Nimrod of old, the Antichrist will deify himself. Through deceptive diplomacy he will persuade other nations to join the new world order of global unity. It will initially, therefore, be a common, negotiated agreement. In their vision for a united world they might paraphrase Genesis 11:4 as follows: “Come, let us build ourselves a city as world capital in the Middle East, and establish a powerful world religion which exalts and enthrones man; and let us make a name for ourselves as planetary citizens, lest we be divided and scattered over the face of the earth.”

Diplomatic negotiations for the establishing of a new world order have already been conducted under the auspices of the USA, the United Nations and other world bodies. When the Antichrist is revealed, he will pursue these negotiations to their final conclusion. Daniel says: “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week” (Dan. 9:27). This prophetic week represents a period of seven years, and refers to the coming tribulation period.

When the Antichrist is accepted as world leader, it will be at the cost of the deceived nations with whom he has confirmed a covenant. He will not act in their best interests, but in the interests of Satan who prepared and empowered him for his position. John says: “…and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority” (Rev. 13:2).

We must clearly understand that apart from his attacks on individuals and groups, the devil also follows a strategy to deceive the nations to serve him and to join his antichristian new world order of political and religious unity. In Revelation 20:3 we read that Satan will, after the second coming of Jesus, be bound and confined to a bottomless pit “that he should deceive the nations no more.” After the thousand years he will be released to once more deceive the nations and mobilize them for a war against the kingdom of God (Rev. 20:7-10).

At present, the nations are deceived into sacrificing their sovereignty on the altar of regional and global unity. The moves to achieve European unity are good examples of this dangerous trend. The process of political unification will end up in a new world order and global governance. By that time Satan’s strongman, the Antichrist, will offer his services to the deceived masses. Revelation 13 says: “…and all the world wondered after the beast… and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” (Rev. 13:3, 7).

2.7 Military wars

In association with his political war against independent nations – particularly those nations who strongly resist satanic ideologies – Satan actively resorts to military wars of conquest to establish and expand evil empires. He is the “God of forces” (Dan. 11:38) who uses his power in various ways to deprive nations of their independence by subjecting them to strong adversaries who, wittingly or unwittingly, advance the interests of the kingdom of darkness.

Many wars have been instigated by Satan against Israel in an effort to obliterate the Chosen People from whom the Messiah was born and to whom He will shortly return to rule the world from the throne of David. These wars were often motivated by conspiracies against YHVH:

“Keep not thou silence, O God… For, lo, thine enemies… have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites… the Philistines… Assur also joined with them” (Ps. 83:1-8).

Relentless wars against Israel and various Christian communities and nations were waged in New Testament times by the Roman Empire, Islamic nations, the Vatican, the Nazis, various Communist countries, etc. Satan inspires these wars, and will continue to do so. Two wars that are probably the highest on Satan’s agenda for the end-time are the Russo-Arab invasion of Israel (Ezek. 38-39) and the Third World War (the battle of Armageddon). Active demonic instigation will occur to mobilize the armies of the world:

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty… And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon” (Rev. 16:13-15, 16).

As we move closer to the tribulation period, wars and revolutions will continue to escalate with a view to bringing about total disarray among the nations. In this way they will be prepared to accept the temporary peace and unity that the Antichrist will offer them, and become subjects of his world empire. They will relinquish their political and economic independence and also willingly worship Satan’s ‘Prince of Peace’ as their Messiah.

  1. SATAN’S SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT

The seven types of war that Satan wages against mankind and the kingdom of YHVH are planned and co-ordinated within his own kingdom. Although he operates from spiritual spheres he has a power hierarchy and typical institutions of government for the execution of specific tasks. It is the actions of these principalities and structures of authority that we should resist: “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” (Eph. 6:12). From its diverse activities it is evident that the kingdom of Satan has the following seven departments:

3.1 Department for personal attacks

This department functions like the intelligence section of a human government, with the difference that its members collect information on all people on earth. The information is used to exploit people’s weaknesses, to encourage their passions and evil desires, to seduce mislead, oppose and accuse them, and also to rob or kill them. On this level every Christian is continuously involved in spiritual warfare against such demonic attacks. We must achieve victory in the power and in the Name of the Lord Yeshua. “[Therefore] take unto you the whole armour of YHVH, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Eph. 6:13).

3.2 Department for groups and governments

The Bible clearly alludes to the fact that from the kingdom of darkness attacks are leveled against all interest groups and governments in order to distort their vision and to mislead them ideologically. Worldly, humanistic ideologies are offered to them to seduce them to play into Satan’s hands. Paul warned against deceptive philosophies when he said: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit” (Col. 2:8). This phenomenon increases in the end-time:

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Tim. 4:1).

The perverted and godless world in which we live has its own ideological principles. Examples of the corrupting ideologies embraced by governments, political parties, educational institutions and other bodies are humanism, atheism, evolutionism, socialism, communism, liberalism, existentialism, relativism, pragmatism, globalism, New Age thought, as well as all the false religions. If only one of these ideologies gains control over a country or an organization, it constitutes a great victory to the kingdom of darkness. Just think of the potential for mass deception in countries that are officially identifying with communism or one of the non-Christian religions.

Because a government has extensive powers to determine the ideological orientation of a country, its educational policy and other public matters, it is a high priority of Satan to deceive nations, their political leaders and governments. In Daniel 10:13 and 20 we read about the princes of Persia and Greece. They were highly ranked demons with the assignment to deceive entire nations and use them as instruments in Satan’s struggle against the people of YHVH (Israel). These demons withstood the angel of the Lord, indicating that there are also conflicts between the angels of YHVH and the fallen angels of the devil. In The Bible Knowledge Commentary, p. 1366-7, Profs. Walvoord and Zuck say the following about the war against Satan’s angels who are controlling certain nations:

“In Daniel 10:12-14 Gabriel explained the reason for the delay in YHVH’s answer to Daniel’s prayer. YHVH had dispatched Gabriel with a message for him, but Gabriel was hindered by the prince of the Persian kingdom… who must have been a satanic adversary.

“YHVH has arranged the angelic realm in differing ranks. Gabriel and Michael have been assigned authority over angels who administer Elohim’s affairs for the nation Israel (cf. Michael in Dan. 10:21, 12:1 and Jude v. 9). In imitation Satan has also apparently assigned high-ranking demons to positions of authority over each kingdom. The prince of the Persian kingdom was a satanic representative assigned to Persia.

“To seek to prevent Gabriel’s message from getting to Daniel, the demonic prince attacked Gabriel as he embarked on his mission. This gives insight into the nature of the warfare fought in the heavenlies between Elohim’s angels and Satan’s demons to which Paul referred in Eph. 6:12. The battle between Gabriel and the prince (demon) of Persia continued for three weeks until Michael, one of the chief princes of the angelic realm (cf. Dan. 10:21 and 12:1) came to Gabriel’s assistance. Such angelic-demonic conflict indicate something of Satan’s power.”

Many nations and governments in our time clearly demonstrate that they are influenced and even controlled by the kingdom of Satan! They heed the call of the prince of darkness by abrogating Christian constitutions in which the supremacy of YHVH is recognized, the phasing out Christian education in state schools, the degrading of Christianity by demoting it to the same level as the non-Christian religions, and by substantially lowering the moral standards in a country through the legalizing of prostitution, homosexuality, abortion, and other immoral practices. In this way a lawless, immoral, violent, and barbaric lifestyle is promoted. All that remains to happen in such a pernicious world society is the revelation of the man of sin, the Antichrist, who will be Satan’s ruler over a wicked and perverted generation.

3.3 Department for the infiltration and deception of the Christian faith

In this department, much emphasis is placed on theatrics. The church of Christ is studied and imitated to enable false prophets to easily infiltrate and deceive it. The demons that are assigned to this duty select the best possible human collaborators to do their evil work. These are then converted into false prophets who are wolves in sheepskins. These people are usually esteemed and influential persons in society whose opinions as pastors or theologians carry a lot of weight. Their deceptive teachings are very subtle forms of disinformation that cannot be easily discerned from the truth. Their supporters must have blind and unconditional faith in them. Paul says:

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

Such people cause great confusion in the kingdom of YHVH Elohim. The following features are typical of false prophets:

Misleading Pharisees

“Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity” (Mt. 23:28). They pretend to be what they are not. They proclaim a dead form of godliness “to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves” (Mt. 23:15). We are clearly warned against these heretics: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Mt. 7:15).

Stumbling-blocks in God’s kingdom

“But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in” (Mt. 23: 13). These preachers are esteemed spiritual leaders who are not only unsaved themselves, but they act as stumbling-blocks to hinder those who are searching for the Lord. In their preaching they split hairs over trivial issues, but the important subjects of sin, condemnation and salvation are not addressed. “Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel” (Mt. 23:24).

Proclaimers of a false peace

For the sake of popularity, a false prophet proclaims a false peace to pacify people and induce them to continue with their sins under the premise that a loving Elohim will not condemn them. At the same time the false prophets who are used of Satan, keep themselves busy with corruption and self-enrichment. “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jer. 6:13-14; cf. also Jer. 14:13-16).

They deny Yeshua HaMashiach [Christ]

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of” (2 Pet. 2:1-2).

The collaborators of Satan enjoy great public support. Peter says that many will follow their false teachings. They abhor and scoff at the evangelical churches who still preach a Biblical doctrine of salvation based on the virgin birth of the Yeshua [Lord Jesus], His Deity, His atoning death on the cross post or tree, His resurrection from the dead, and His coming again in glory. The false prophets are also campaigning against those who believe in the divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible. They describe such people as naïve, uninformed and outdated in their views. Satan especially hates Genesis and revelation, as his doom is predicted in the former and his execution is described in the latter. His collaborators embrace evolution and deny the literal truth of the Creation account. They also try to spiritualise away the end time prophecies in their campaign to undermine the credibility and literal application of God’s Word.

False prophets who deny the Divinity of Yeshua [Christ] abound in most of the large theological seminaries and faculties of theology at the various universities. Their influence is most destructive, as they are busy training the following generation of “unfaithful servants” who will further lower the spiritual standards of denominations.

[Also realize that through thousands of years, Bible translation has made many mistakes; thus added many flaws to all versions of the Holy Bible – but through following its written instruction in ways very few actually do while looking only to YHVH, and proving all things – His truth will be made within any He calls out of this world. John 15:19 means becoming disassociated with all worldly ways through walking the walk in Colossians 3.]

Extra-Biblical revelations

The false prophets turn away from sound Biblical exegesis and rely on extra-Biblical revelations of a highly questionable nature. They prefer to follow their intuition and justify it by saying, “God told me this or that.” They also talk about their dreams, visions, messages received from angelic beings, and even astral travels to heaven where they allegedly talk to deceased saints. These messages are conveyed to their followers rather than preaching the Word of God.

Small gods, signs and wonders

In the end-time, many false prophets appear on the scene and deceive large massive crowds with sensational signs and wonders. Some of them do not hesitate to call themselves apostles, prophets, or even gods. They command powers that can make people swoon and fall down on the floor, behave as if drunk, shake or laugh uncontrollably, shout at the top of their voices, bleat, roar, make animal noises or behave in other bizarre ways. Biblical justification is then given for these phenomena. The Lord Yeshua warned against the false prophets and their deceptive methods:

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many… For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [show] great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Mt. 24:11, 24).

So do not underestimate Satan’s department for the infiltration and deception of the Christian church. Take ‘cognisance’ of this possibility and guard against it. The Lord Yeshua “spoiled principalities and powers, He made a [show] of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Col. 2:15). We should be able to identify the false prophets and expose their deceptive teachings under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. John said:

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world” (1 Jn. 4:1).

3.4 Department for the perversion and destruction of Elohim’s Word

Throughout the ages, incessant attacks were made against the written Word of Elohim by perverting and distorting it with wrong exegesis, and also by providing and using new translations that deviate from the original manuscripts. In this way people become doctrinally deceived and also ignorant about vital promises and warnings in the Bible. There is only one way to correct their heresies and falsifications, and that is the continued proclaiming of the true and unadulterated Word of Elohim:

“I charge thee therefore before Yehovah Elohim, and the Lord Yeshua HaMashiach, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry” (2 Tim. 4:1-5).

3.5 The department for false religions

It is obvious that Satan concentrates largely on the founding and expansion of false religions in his efforts to deceive mankind. In this way he confronts and persecutes Christianity from the outside and deceives millions billions of people to worship idols [or anything material or worldly]. In this context, he and his demons still disguise themselves behind masks in order that the deceived people may remain under the impression that they are dealing with gods, spirit guides, ancestral spirits, or ascended masters of wisdom. By sacrificing to these gods and spirits, camouflaged demons are actually worshiped. Paul warned against this practice:

“What say I then? That the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to devils, and not to Elohim: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils” (1 Cor. 10:19-20).

The Biblical command is: “[Therefore], my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry” (1 Cor. 10:14).

3.6 The department for occult powers

From his mystical, supernatural spheres Satan and his demons can manifest a great variety of occult powers among people on earth. It is done selectively and in such a way that they will not realise that these powers come from the devil. Occult powers manifest as supernatural abilities such as psychic powers, extrasensory perception, signs and wonders, holistic healing, witchcraft, magic, spells, divination, fortune-telling, clairvoyance, astral projection, levitation, and the ability to go through fire by walking over hot coals. Thousands of years ago, Israel was strictly warned against engaging in practices of this nature:

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a nacromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy Elohim doth drive them out from before thee… For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners” (Deut. 18:10-14).

3.7 The department for Satanism

The seventh department in the kingdom of darkness is concerned with the unconcealed worship of Satan as the cruel, revengeful, and power-hungry god of a fallen world. Because of the highly gruesome nature of this practice it is only people who are in the darkest depths of spiritual and moral depravity who would feel inclined to go to these extremes.

As the spiritual and moral falling away in the world increases, there are more perverted human beings who take pleasure in violence, rebellion, curses, bloodshed, skeletons, liquor and drug abuse, sexual orgies, and the most grisly satanic rituals. What were earlier small groups of people who met in dark dens in deserted places to worship Satan and to sacrifice to him, have now grown into millions of supporters all over the world.

Apart from the fact that Satan is a rebel and a murderer he also wishes to be worshiped and honoured by his followers. Those who are prepared to accept and worship him in spite of his cruelty and ugly characteristics become involved with Satanism. In America and other countries there are also branches of the Church of Satan that was established by Anton LaVey in 1966.

In Satanism there is a hierarchy through which a member moves to the top structure; consequently, many of the new members have only limited knowledge on who and what Satan really is. As they become deeper involved in the movement they also learn to know him better and become more and more like him.

There are various reasons why people become involved with Satanism. Some are motivated by a spirit of extreme rebellion. They revolt against the social order, reject all authority and the norms of decency, and then associate with the great rebel, Lucifer. Others crave for mystical, supernatural power and approach the devil to get it from him. There are also people with murderous inclinations arising from a thirst for revenge, who join forces with the great murderer and execute their plans with accomplices of an equally corrupted spirit. A common attraction is the sexual orgies and the availability of liquor and drugs at the meetings of Satanists.

Another reason why people approach Satan is to become financially prosperous. Many of the members of rock bands in America have approached high priests or witches of satanic groups to sell their souls to Satan in exchange for fame and prosperity. With their own blood they sign a covenant with Satan. The obligation then rests on them to promote themes like witchcraft, magic, drugs, Eastern cults, or Satanism in their songs.

One of the most important activities at their meetings is sacrifices to Satan, accompanied by prayers to him. Animals are sacrificed to him, but in some cases also humans. Instances are known where abducted people have been sacrificed to Satan, as well as the unregistered babies of cult members. Those participating in the ritual drink blood mixed with liquor or drugs. Demons also appear at meetings and take possession of people who open themselves up to them.

The captives of Satan are on the lowest level of spiritual and moral corruption imaginable. Nobody should even take the first step in this direction. The Bible says: “Neither give place to the devil” (Eph. 4:27). The advice of James is: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (Jas. 4:7). Peter adds to this when he says: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith” (1 Pet. 5:8-9). Do not take the dangerous risk of becoming acquainted with the depths of Satan by descending into the pit of Satanism (Rev. 2:24).

  1. CHARACTERISTICS OF SATAN AND HIS ACCOMPLICES

From a study of Satan’s methods of work among people in general, as well as the unbridled and extreme manifestations of his evil nature within the Satanist movement, the following 13 basic characteristics of him and his accomplices are evident:

4.1 Rebellion

Satan means Adversary. His rebellion and opposition against God started in heaven. In the book of Isaiah God says about Satan:

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart:, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; that made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?’” (Is. 14:12-17).

Satan is still the great adversary who promotes anarchy by rejecting all authority and laws. He undermines divine and human authority in an effort to create total chaos. That is part of the struggle that he waged against the kingdom of light through the ages. Satanists are possessed by the same spirit of rebellion and anarchy. They show it by painting the Anarchy symbol (A) on walls or floors of public buildings. The circle around the symbol, which is also used with other symbols, is the circle of power. The occult power of Satan must be kept inside the circle, and danger outside.

4.2 Destruction of Elohim’s creation

The entire creation of our Supreme Creator is a target for Satan’s destructive works. He is intent on polluting, poisoning, burning and destroying the earth and its natural resources with the aim of making it uninhabitable. The more control Satan gains over a people and their culture, the more he blinds the minds of people, erodes their values and sense of responsibility, and transforms them into materialistic and covetous people who overexploit or destroy nature in a callous and unscrupulous way to benefit themselves at any cost. Trees are cut without replacing them, pastures are overburdened and destroyed, soil erosion is allowed to continue unchecked, land and sea animals are hunted without allowing stocks a reasonable chance to recover, while land, water and the atmosphere are polluted to the extent that the survival chances for man and animals are seriously endangered. It is clearly Satan’s agenda to destroy the world which YHVH has given to man to be cultivated and controlled in a sustainable manner. In the great tribulation, Satan will come very close to causing a total ecological collapse on earth.

4.3 Destroying of Elohims’s institutions

Satan and his followers not only endeavour to promote the destruction of the physical creation, but also Elohim’s institutions for the orderly existence of human societies. Of these, marriage and government institutions are the most important targets for attacks. Satanists often curse the marriages of Christians in the hope that they will succumb to pressure and divorce. Sexual promiscuity and cohabitation is promoted in various ways.

Continuous efforts are also made to bring down or subvert governments and institutions for the maintenance of law and order. The police are strongly despised and hated because they maintain law and order and thus impede a movement towards anarchy. They also hunt down Satanists who contravene certain laws. The police force and other security services are consequently undermined and sometimes infiltrated by Satanists to get covert protection through inside information. To protect themselves against the police, Satanists use code names for one another at meetings, and they also maintain secrecy about their addresses and places of employment. In this way, a member who may be arrested by the police does not have valuable information that may lead to the prosecution of other members. In this way, Satan protects his agents who must sow chaos, disorder, and anarchy in society.

4.4 Sabotage and underground activities

In Satan’s empire there is a strong commitment to sabotage in order to break down what has been built up. That does not only involve the ruining, burning or destruction of buildings, cars, and other property, but also the non-material possessions of a nation. This includes the sabotage of educational standards and other forms of academic terrorism by which tertiary institutions are threatened. Most of these activities are planned underground by a network of secret societies. The evil plans of Satan are then executed by various front organisations. Covert attacks are in this way made on a society to deprive its members of their material and spiritual goods, and leave them destitute. Christian civilization is incessantly attacked and undermined by the forces of darkness in their campaign of hatred.

4.5 Lying and the spreading of evil doctrines

Because the devil is the father of lies, he fights all forms of the truth and endeavours to substitute it with lies. This attitude emerges from the demonic ideology of opposite values in which everything that is good, is, in Satan’s domain, regarded as bad. Nice, clean, honourable and positive things are despised by the devil and his followers. In their place ugly, vile, dishonourable and negative things are presented. Filthy, pornographic material is displayed in public places to promote the process of spiritual, psychological and bodily defilement, thereby putting Satan’s stamp on society. Doctrines of demons are also disseminated in the form of distorted religious, political and philosophical ideologies. Churches, governments, political parties, and universities clearly show the results of this assault from the underworld. In many theological seminaries, demonic teachings have been firmly established in which the Deity and virgin birth of Yeshua as well as the inerrancy of the Bible are denied. Demonic signs and wonders have also found their way into many churches and Christian movements through the mediation of false prophets. Satanists also infiltrate many churches to spread their evil influence there.

4.6 Cursing and blaspheming

The devil and his followers hate, despise, reject, and slander the only true and Most High Elohim, the Christians and Israel. Devil means False accuser or Slanderer, and that is exactly what he is doing. An extended vocabulary of swear-words, curses, and slanderous talk is used. Curses are placed on individuals, groups, churches, and even on an entire country. The Name of Elohim is also blasphemed. This will be a major characteristic of the Antichrist: “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies… And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” (Rev. 13:5-6). All people who participate in this evil practice are playing directly into the hands of Satan.

4.7 Opposition against the cross of Yeshua and the Christian church

The kingdom of darkness is fanatically opposed to the church of Yeshua and tries to question, discourage, deceive, infiltrate, oppress, forbid, or destroy it in every possible way. Some of the symbols that they use in this campaign are the following:

The broken cross

In this symbol, the cross of Yeshua is turned upside down and the horizontal bars broken to point diagonally to the bottom. It represents the rejection and destruction of Christianity – something to which every Satanist must commit him or herself. Witches use the same symbol. A number of radical peace movements also use this symbol, to which they refer as the peace sign. One of these groups campaigns against the use of nuclear weapons. Although their cause may be just, they are guided by Satan as the angel of light and are looking for a false, humanistic peace outside Christ. In their concept of peace there is no place for peace with God based on the atoning death of Jesus on the cross. To the contrary – the cross of Yeshua is broken and rejected to allow fallen man to establish his own peace outside Elohim. This false peace, which is also promoted by the New Age Movement and the new world order, is a deceptive prelude to the great tribulation: “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thess. 5:3).

The inverted cross

This cross is not broken but turned upside down. It indicates the rejection of Yeshua Hamashiach and contempt for the gospel of salvation. Inverted symbols are typical of the opposite values pursued by Satanists. People who are sometimes sacrificed to Satan on Black Sabbath are crucified upside down in accordance with this tradition.

The cross of confusion

This is a cross of which the long lower leg is curled to resemble a reversed question mark. It is also a satanic cross by which the genuineness and power of the cross of Yeshua is questioned. The rock group Blue Oyster Cult uses this symbol on their record covers.

The Ankh cross

This is an Egyptian symbol of life, of which the short upper bar forms a circle. It also depicts a combination of the female and male signs of Isis and Osiris. Satanists use it as a sex symbol for their sexual orgies.

4.8 Immoral behaviour

Because the Bible upholds high moral standards, the Adversary makes it his business to break down these standards and replace them with the most extreme forms of immorality and misconduct. Filthy habits, swearing and vile conversations, anti-social behaviour, a propensity for nakedness, fornication, homosexuality, corruption, violence, and theft are all part of an immoral lifestyle that is continuously promoted by Satan. He is the author of sin and seeks to establish an international culture of sin among all nations. That is why his future world leader, the Antichrist, is also referred to as “that man of sin” (2 Thess. 2:3).

During the rule of the Antichrist the decadence and immorality on earth will be comparable with the days of Noah and Lot. Of the time of Noah the Bible says: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually… for the earth is filled with violence through them” (Gen. 6:5, 13). In the time of Lot, homosexuality and violence were rife. Because of the extreme immorality and rebellion of people, God poured out His wrath over them.

During the coming rule of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet, immorality and rebellion against Elohim and His norms will again take on unprecedented proportions. As a result, the world will be surrendered to a great tribulation as there was never before; and if those days are not shortened no flesh will be saved (Mt. 24:21-22). Sin is the reason why YHVH Elohim judges people. Satan makes it his job to plunge individuals, groups, and even whole nations into sin by presenting it as human freedom and an acceptable way of life. In the Satanist movement the culture of sin already reigns supreme.

4.9 The use of occult power

Satan doubtlessly has considerable power, which he actively uses for the promotion and extension of the interests of his kingdom. He makes it available to Satanists, magicians, witches, diviners, necromancers, psychics, and various other practitioners of occult powers and wisdom. Through these people, it is channeled to the wider community. Occult powers are also offered to false prophets who infiltrate Christian churches and work sensational signs and wonders. In the end-time, this phenomenon will increase considerably.

In His prophetic discourse the Lord Yeshua said: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [show] great signs and wonders” (Mt. 24:24). In this way Satan and his collaborators will pave the way for coming of the ultimate false Christ, who is the Antichrist. Paul says his coming is “after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders” (2 Thess. 2:9). The false prophet will have the same occult powers. John says about him: “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast… And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth… And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast” (Rev. 13:12-14). In the coming new world order, the occult powers and ‘cosmic wisdom’ dispensed by Satan will be much sought after by both political and spiritual leaders. Those without it will be disregarded as ignorant and powerless.

4.10 Self-deification

In his kingdom, Satan insists on being referred to as the god and ruler of the universe. People must also accept him in this capacity when they conclude covenants with him. It is his great desire to have dominion over all people. He already has a considerable degree of influence and authority over the deceived nations of the world but he is not content with that. Like so often in history, he wishes to institute a world government with absolute powers over the inhabitants of the earth. People must be ruled with an iron fist and be forced to worship Satan or his demons that pose as idols. According to the Bible, a satanic world government will indeed be instituted by the Antichrist. It will be a revival of the Babylonian and Roman world empires in which occult powers and idolatry were rife. Satan will give his power and authority to the Antichrist and also insist on being worshiped by all people (Rev. 13:2-4). Many of the followers of Lucifer also deify and exalt themselves, and become very arrogant.

4.11 Murderer

Satan “was a murderer from the beginning” (Jn. 8:44). He takes pleasure in killing people so that they may be plunged into hell/grave where eternal death awaits them. His followers are also attracted by murder, murder weapons, blood, and skulls. The more gruesome a murder scene is, the more they like it. When Satan is finished using people for a certain task, he kicks them aside, drives them to commit suicide, or uses other people to kill them. Anton LaVey, the satanic priest who started the First Church of Satan in America on the sixth day of the sixth month in 1966, and who also wrote the satanic bible, died in 1997 in a very mysterious way. The last few months before his death he suffered heavily from depression and may have committed suicide.

4.12 Demonic possession

A commonly used method in the kingdom of Satan is that of demonic possession. Satan and his fallen angels are spirits who are dependent on possessing people and working through them. They can also influence and deceive people without possessing them, but it remains a priority with them to get full control over their victims. A demon who possesses a person, completely changes the personality of his host, controls his will and emotions, intimidates and commands him by way of telepathic orders, or even by talking to him/her in an audible voice. He tortures the person if he refuses to execute orders. The victim gets frightening nightmares, is forced to display weird pictures on the walls of his room and to wear black clothes. In the satanic cult there are high priests who are possessed by a number of demons, each with his own name. They can be given certain assignments by the high priest.

4.13 The worshipping of Satan

Satan is the undisputed head of his kingdom and demands the loyalty and worship of all his subjects. The Satanists must continually worship him and bring sacrifices to honour him. They mainly use the name Lord Satan when they worship him, but they sometimes invert the name to become Natas. They also address him as Lucifer or Leviathan. In illustrations he is depicted as a human-like being with the head of a goat, or only as a black goat. The symbol that is mostly used in connection with him is the inverted pentagram. The head of a goat is sometimes drawn in the pentagram. At satanic meetings a large, encircled pentagram is drawn on the floor and black candles are placed on each of the five points of it, which are lit by magical power. Demons that are called up appear in the middle of the pentagram.

Although Satan and his demons are indirectly worshiped by millions of people who worship idols, it remains his final objective to be directly worshiped in his undisguised form as Lucifer. Together with the Antichrist, who will be the leader of the future luciferic world order, the dragon (Satan) will be worshiped by all people. Refusal to obey will be punishable by death:

“…and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?… and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Rev. 13:3-4, 15).

In the coming hour of darkness, millions of people will openly worship Satan.

  1. FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS

We will now briefly indicate from the Bible how the struggle between the kingdoms of light and darkness will develop in future. Due to its increased perversion and corruption, the world is heading inexorably toward a satanic take-over. At the height of the Antichrist’s reign of terror during the great tribulation, Satanism will be the only officially recognized and compulsory world religion. This darkest hour in human history will commence in the middle of the tribulation period, shortly after a war between angels and demons has broken out in heavenly places during which Satan will be cast down on earth. He will know that he has little time to accomplish his evil plans and will act with intensified anger and viciousness:

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not… And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him… Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Rev. 12:7-9, 12).

Satan will know that he only has 3½ years to implement his plans for world domination and to be worshiped by all people. The Bible is very clear about the fact that Yeshua will return to earth with a heavenly army at the end of the great tribulation, placing His feet on the Mount of Olives outside the Old City of Jerusalem, and judging His enemies. Satan will muster all his forces to fight against Yeshua to try and prevent this divine intervention in his kingdom. This conflict is called the battle of Armageddon. Satan will use evil spirits to incite the kings of the world to send their armies to Israel for this great battle against Yeshua and His heavenly hosts (Rev. 16:13-16).

The battle of Armageddon will not last very long, as it will be a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living Elohim. The Lord will quickly and effectively deal with Satan and all his deceived horde:

“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that [worked] miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone… And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years; and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled… And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations… and fire came down from Elohim out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” (Rev. 19:19-20; 20:1-3, 7-10).

Before the second coming of Yeshua, when the dragon, the beast and the false prophet will be conquered and judged, a mustering of satanic powers will occur on earth as never before. The devil will know that his time is short, and the Antichrist will also have knowledge about the prophecy that he will be destroyed by the coming of the true Yeshua HaMashiach (2 Thess. 2:8). As in the case of Lucifer, his hatred and revengefulness will know no bounds, “therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many” (Dan. 11:44).

  1. ARE YOU A VICTIM OR A CONQUERER?

In the light of this information on the kingdom of Satan, there are a few questions that each of us needs to seriously ask ourselves. Some people may be shocked to learn about the plans and modus operandi of the kingdom of darkness, but nevertheless remain under the illusion that these things do not directly influence them. The fact is that Satan does not miss a single person on earth. As a result of the fall of man that was planned by Satan, all people are born with a sinful nature from which they desperately need to be saved. Otherwise, they are lost sinners on their way to eternal damnation. Because of their sins they will share eternity with the devil and his fallen angels. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). “There is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10). “Except a man is born again [and gets a new nature from God], he cannot see the kingdom of God” (Jn. 3:3).

The question is not whether you became involved with Satanism, practiced false religions, experimented with occult powers, or were deceived by false prophets. These are all very real dangers, and people who were lured into the evil practices of darkness urgently need to be redeemed. Millions of people are not lost because of these things but because of their own sins, despite the fact they were, by human standards, reasonably good people. A definite decision must be taken for the Lord Yeshua and against your sins from which you must sincerely repent.

Although you have not explicitly chosen to be evil-minded and inherited a sinful nature because of Satan’s deception of Adam and Eve, the father and mother of us all, you nevertheless have the responsibility to do something about it. Elohim has given each of us a free will to take independent decisions and thus to accept accountability for whatever we have decided to do. Because your sinful nature is part of your personality, which includes your free will, God holds you responsible for your own sins: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” (Jas. 1:14-15).

The devil does exploit your evil passions and strengthen wrong desires, but because of your inherently sinful nature you mostly commit sins without the direct intervention of Satan and his demons. You always take a decision to either yield to a temptation or to resist it.

Is your life characterized by continuous sins, or are you born again with a new nature that was created according to Elohim, in righteousness and true holiness? (Eph. 4:24). Do you live a sanctified life in the power of the Holy Spirit? If you live in sin you will go to harsh judgement just as certainly as all the deceived victims of Satan to whom we referred in this article.

Examine yourself as to whether you are in the faith and bear fruit that befits repentance. A few straight questions may help you to conduct this examination: “Sir, do you practice a dead form of godliness without a clear testimony of being born again? Then you are deceiving yourself. How is your conduct at work? Are you overcome by rages and do you often lose your temper? Are you honest, do you avoid corruption, and do you refrain from cursing, participation in filthy conversations and pornographic material? How is your conduct at home? Do you love your wife and are you true to her? Do you set the right example to your family of holiness and a godly life? Do you regularly worship the Lord and read the Bible in family and private devotions? Do you read good Christian books?”

Ladies, you need to face up to similar questions about your conduct, also.

The one and most important question we must ask ourselves through self examination is; do we love others as we love ourselves? Because if we do not, lack compassion, and fruits of genuine love with deed for others in need – YHVH cannot be known; thus bringing the greatest form of deception on billions that walk not their commanded walk. Matthew 22:36-40, 25:31-46, John 13:34, 14:21, 15:1-6, James 1:22-25, 2:8, 13-26, 1 John 3:15-18, 4:7-8, 20-21

These questions will help you to determine whether you belong to the Lord Yeshua or to the devil. All habitual sinners are children of the devil. Yeshua said to the unsaved religious leaders of the first century: “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father [which are sins] you want to do” (Jn. 8:44). When a child of Elohim sins it is a disaster in his life and he must immediately confess and forsake the sin. The rule of the Christian life is that we should not sin (1 Jn. 2:1). We must even resist to blood, striving against sin (Heb. 12:4).

If you are a saved person belonging to the Lord Yeshua, then “stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Gal. 5:1). Help others who are bound by Satan, that they may be liberated by the only Saviour of the world. “For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 Jn. 3:8). “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (Jn. 8:36). Praise His Name!

WHAT IS REALLY HAVING FAITH?

WHAT IS REALLY HAVING FAITH?

Please, please, please share this writing because we all on this earth need help in different ways.

Faith is preparing for life’s coming storms upon all humanity as written; therefore learning to live on faith through putting trust in only our creator when there is no other way for survival.

When two people are drawn together from different parts of the world while being have-nots with absolutely nothing material in their life, yet stay together regardless of their many hardships to be married and become as one. . .

Our wedding in 2009

There is a purpose for all things through those chosen and called out of this world that all natural worldly minds cannot spiritually grasp. John 15:19  1 Corinthians 2:14

It’s because through faith, there is a purpose for all things.

“We are assured and know that [YHVH being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love YHVH and are called according to [His] design and purpose. Romans 8:28 (AMPC) with God’s name restored.

Through faith, those called and chosen know that they cannot direct their own steps.

“O Lord [pleads Jeremiah in the name of the people], I know that [the determination of] the way of a man is not in himself; it is not in man [even in a strong man or in a man at his best] to direct his [own] steps. Jeremiah 10:23

Through faith, those chosen continually look to the Father for making their path in this life straight according to His will, and never their own.

“In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Proverbs 3:6

Through faith, we know to put no trust in humankind because Satan and his ministers scattered worldwide mislead while selling lies for tithes being un biblical.

“So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of YHVH. It is better to depend on Yehovah than to trust mortals. 1 Corinthians 2:5, Psalms 118:8

Through faith is knowing this entire world has been misled, deceived, snared, tricked, and beguiled leaving none, no, not one pleasing in the sight of YHVH.

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. 

“The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity]. They are all gone aside, they have all together become filthy; there is none that does good or right, no, not one. Revelation 12:9, Psalms 14:2-3

Is not scripture true when spiritually sought? Is not the near 7.5 billion living and thinking in worldly ways the children of men? Has not Satan deceived this entire world?

Therefore, through faith, these words of scripture become clearly understood, and taken very personally. . .

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. John 15:19

Through faith is seen this entire human race in a division led by their own way which seems right and can be told nothing different from whatever their own human spirit leads; thus keeping them of this world, and despising any not like them while lacking the fruits of loving others as they love themselves.

“There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25

Through faith, we know that the church, being a building has absolutely nothing to do with the Greek word ekklesia which means a calling out, therefore it was wrongly translated leaving all church buildings worldwide as an illusion filled with mislead, and where Satan dwells.

Through faith, we know that the name of God and Jesus Christ are more manmade titles having nothing to do with whom they really are being Yehovah Elohim and Yeshua HaMashiach.

Through faith, we also know that through world division, pride, and all the ways which seem right to humans — very, very, few will agree with anything written or spoken differently from their own thoughts; and reason is because any not chosen and called out of this world through disassociation, know only their self.

100_31751 Samuel 2:8

Think of what I share like this; what if your life for a decade never brought you any happiness even though you believed, prayed, endured, and waited for anything better than the life you had?

How would you feel through years and years experiencing this world of Christianity showing zero love with compassion for others in need when it a commandment?

What could possibly be any more clear than these following words of scripture Christians totally ignore?

“I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. John 13:34 (AMPC)

“The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]  John 14:21 (AMPC)

“Anyone who hates (abominates, detests) his brother [in Christ] is [at heart] a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding ([a]persevering) within him. By this we come to know (progressively to recognize, to perceive, to understand) the [essential] love: that He laid down His [own] life for us; and we ought to lay [our] lives down for [those who are our] brothers [[b]in Him]. But if anyone has this world’s goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and fellow believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him? Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 1 John 3:15-18

“Teacher, which [a]kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? [Some commandments are light—which are heavy?] And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. These two commandments [b]sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 22:36-40

“But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience). James 1:22-25

Listen, my beloved brethren: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and in their position as believers and to inherit the kingdom which He has promised to those who love Him? If indeed you [really] fulfill the royal Law in accordance with the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as [you love] yourself, you do well. So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love]. For to him who has shown no mercy the judgment [will be] merciless, but mercy [full of glad confidence] exults victoriously over judgment. What is the use (profit), my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no [good] works [to show for it]? Can [such] faith save [his soul]? If a brother or sister is poorly clad and lacks food for each day, And one of you says to him, Good-bye! Keep [yourself] warm and well fed, without giving him the necessities for the body, what good does that do? So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead). James 2:5, 8, 12-17

100_3175

1 Samuel 2:8

The meaning of the verse just read has absolutely nothing to do with today’s worldly riches, but rather speaks of an earned position within His eternal government. Isaiah 9:6-7, Revelation 5:10, ect.

My wife and I have been without funds and have no food, so we pray as always and also ask Yehovah how much longer until we find just one genuine believer being as a doer of what you command rather than a hearer only, and continue our wait for our most simple needs.

The site below through compassionate crowdfunding at the time if this update [4/8/2017] gained 130 shares, yet no help that we really need. Why is that?

https://www.youcaring.com/jeffandmylenecallarman-789450

Because the god of this world only hates love, kindness, truth, compassion, empathy, and everything to do with righteousness; therefore being the misleading spirit of evil as the prince and power of the air, he injects selfishness and mislead into all minds which nullifies this world of Christianity from even knowing the creator they worship in words without deed, because Father Elohim [God] is love. Read again 1 John 3:17-18 while knowing there are many verses that accompany being a commandment. For any wanting deep spiritual truth, this read below offers much.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/

So our faith has become a decade of patience through knowing YHVH has been shaping and molding us for use in these end times according to His will; therefore through faith, no matter what life’s circumstance comes upon us — without choice we just accept our life as it is, and that is because those with faith through endurance and self-sacrifice of life’s basic needs, are those who which pleases our Father — therefore know their destiny.

Do you love our creator? How much? Enough to do be as sheep rather than the goats in Matthew 25:31-46? Ever wonder where and how the judgment will come upon all the goats worldwide?

Enough to be as sheep rather than the goats in Matthew 25:31-46? Ever wonder where and how the judgment will come upon all the goats worldwide?

Enough to not be cast into the coming fire of affliction? John 15:1-6

Nobody Knows What All Think They Know

Just how many uncountable times have these following words from Proverbs been discussed, analyzed taught or interpreted according to what man believes to be right?

100_3656100_3661

How often is our world of Christianity been told this following scripture from Revelation being so true that none of this world believe them? but rather all have been deceived less saved Christians, when in truth according to the Bible — they are the most misled and deceived people on this earth!

100_3488

I am 61, and my drawing from YHVH first began in 1989; however, just as all believers and people of this world — I have been very deceived in many ways — but now, by the will of YHVH, all things within my life have been on His steady course of revealing unknown truth which has become very clear to me; and reason is because I have not only been called out of this world and away from all those misled as written in Proverbs 14 and John 15. . .

100_3662bible-verses-006

But also have become as a living sacrifice spiritually speaking of my wife and I that have had no life other than hardship in all ways since YHVH brought us together from different parts of this world in 2007.

In 2006 just prior to leaving the USA on a one way ticket to the Philippines, my last work as a welder millwright paid over $200 per day; and after so many years of lacking even basic needs — this is where I was fortunate to work in October and November last year for $6 per day . . .

So what does or should this mean for our world of few genuine believers leaving billions with unknown knowledge equaling who Israel is, who the gods of this world really are, who is the 144,000, and what their purpose is?

How can truth be made known for a world walking in their own unknown shades of grey having no true light while not even knowing how and why Yeshua HaMashiach wrongly known by most as Jesus Christ was created? and thinking they know all things which seem right to them?

Who really wants fact never taught in this world overflowing with religions and belief having bias and human spirit for their guide?

What is a believer to do through a decade of experiencing this world of Christianity being filled with so much iniquity that they all have been separated from YHVH? Are not we to live by every word? Study to show ourselves approved? Prove all things? Yet the billions that take part in one of the most favored and pagan holidays known as Christmas and Easter do none of what who they claim to love instructs in the Bible — but rather live in iniquity which has separated them from Yehovah Elohim.

Truth for these end times can only become known to those it has been given by YHVH.

This link https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/539/ shares some efforts towards my spiritual growth with understanding for those choosing total disassociation from all of this world while living as instructed in Colossians 3.

Mylene and I have been fighting the fights of life for 10 years being illnesses, hunger, and never even having a stove or even use for one; we now have run out of rice and really do need some help from a compassionate heart, please allow our Father and creator to direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

http://ttimeofttrouble.webs.com/index.htm – Two Educations in Life – Worldly or Spiritual

timesoftroubles@gmail.com – contact me regarding what this world cannot see being destiny; and that includes all misled Christianity worldwide in every divided denomination.

 

Is Your Life a Blessing or a Curse?

For many, what they think is blessing hides their hidden curse being judgement with punishment en route; and for many with faith, their seemingly curse in life will become a blessing. Psalms 33:17-22

When we have been placed within our spiritual prison for life, all that we can do is seek our daily path through instruction nobody of this world follows — because it’s not of this world. Proverbs 1, 2, 3, John 15, and Colossians 3 tell it like it is.

008

With all the hard times in life billions worldwide have to deal with in their own way — whether it be hunger, homeless, surrounded with massive rebel violence, death, chemical genocide, diseases, torture, wrongly in prison, a victim of human trafficking, or brutal rapes with children included – which is in truth just a part of the uncountable atrocities upon innocent human beings everywhere on this planet earth, thus my wife and I have well learned to just accepted our own difficulties for many years while seeing the little we have as more of a blessing when compared to what multitudes scattered worldwide must face each day for years and years upon more years being their entire life of nothing but hardship and survival; therefore we just deal with our own way of existence through faith and prayer going far beyond just words, and beyond our world of false Christianity having words only with nothing more.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/07/10/539/  Efforts Towards Spiritual Knowledge

http://timesofroubles.webs.com/mywritingsforgod.htm Ditto

Below is a brief description of what happened to us back in April 2016, and to this day nothing has changed because zero help has ever come our way through loving and righteous Christianity – and sadly the same holds true for those always being tortured in North Korea, and places all over this globe; and it’s all because of the incapable human rule which has always been based on power, greed, and control over our entire civilization being as nothing above worthless human trash which can easily be seen by those few on this earth seeking truth on the way things truly are. So what do politicians do? Ask Killery or even Trump why this world is nothing but lies? Ask them why billions were dumped into their smorgasbord of lies as presidential candidates  rather than the power and control they have in turning billions and trillions towards helping our brutalized soon to fall United States? They won’t answer because it’s the plan of the New World Order to kill and destroy for reducing our world population through the extermination of billions.

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ylRD1O/30_population_control_quotes

Because of our living situation, we went looking for a place to rent even though we had no funds because; 1) my disability from old head injury long ago, 2) having no pension, social security, employment or income for these past 10 years in a 3rd world country, less 4 months work in 2012 — and 3) has been my wife’s health problems that became so extreme, she had to stop teaching 4th grade so we could move for gaining help to care for her during hard times filled with much pain. And the reason for no money was we put everything we had from the sale of our lot and home into the near unlivable shack where she had been raised, and still the home of her parents in their 80’s with no income – thus not even our own making our life as a prison needing escape with only faith being our hope.

100_2600100_2601100_2286100_2381

Even after my own paint job and many repairs through months as little funds allowed, our day did not end well.

100_2624

Since meeting in 2007, we have always had very little in this life; therefore having even less just comes as nothing new. By rights, Mylene and I could have easily died because when we went off the road, down into shallow embankment and flipped doing about 40 mph, and because of no seat belts we were as marbles being shaken in a can – yet neither of us was badly hurt because our guardian angel was with us; and given the way our situation in life has been for almost a decade – only those few with spiritual understanding can relate – thus what happened had purpose through more shaping and molding that Yehovah has been doing for years to prepare our faith for the hardest times within the greatest world chaos that has ever been; therefore now it’s our greatest prayer for some help that we have needed for almost a decade comes our way because we really have down to absolutely nothing for so many years with strong and valid reasons why; yet even with all my efforts towards spiritual education, what is coming upon America and this world according to the signs of the times – no help has come since this happened in April 2016.

100_2845

Even though all we own is this 1997 Nissan Jeep that I had redone all the brakes, wheel cylinders, pinion seal, lights, still needs a decent radiator, fuel line, recovered the two seats, metal repair in floors, painted and more, but had no funds to rebuild the front end, replace idler arm, shocks or rear tires; thus driving that day – when the lower right control arm came loose, the front left wheel went left by itself taking us quickly off the road with no warning.

Far as our living conditions we accept. . .100_3524 Her parent’s private restroom and shower they prefer, and mine below they chose not to use because it is different even though there is no flush.

Mylene’s mom and dad behind the empty shack next to us because we have no back yard beyond the outhouse.

100_3528

Our only transportation has been like this since April 2016, and being I was a mechanic, welder, body man, and painter with many other hands on trades – I could have easily repaired everything for a thousand dollars, buy some food to eat, and even had a needed good needed nights sleep.

Ever heard of a living Sacrifice? Well, leaving my entire prior life in 2006 was exactly that:

I am 61 and would love a game of Chess, a drink, good music, and some normal conversations on the way things worldwide truly are. But sadly, I want far too much than this world is willing to supply.

One Big Question: Who are you in The Eyes of our Creator that knows all things with absolutely nothing ever hid?

One of self? Hate? Greed? Self-Righteous? All Knowing? Religious Hypocrite? Or like most all believers living through their words only while having Zero Action For Others In Need?

So what are Christians suppose to do?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/w28QO5/love_god_seeks_in_believers_but_cannot_find_as_commanded

As for my loving wife and I,

this past decade has been nothing beyond a hard, hungry, hurting, and needful life in many ways with Christians showing absolutely zero care or concern — even though the words in the Holy Bible tell exactly their coming destiny through dead faith revealed in Matthew 25:31-46 and James 2:14-17, 1 John 3:17-18 — But do they believe who they claim to love, honor, and worship?

We would be more than thankful for any help no matter how small, because just a little is far better than nothing.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN NYC FIFTEEN YEARS AGO WHEN THE TOWERS FELL? THE BIBLE REVEALS

FOR WHAT WELL PLANNED INTENTIONAL PURPOSE THIS HAPPENED BEING ANOTHER WAY TO DRAIN TRILLIONS FROM THE U.S. FOR FALSE WARS TERRORISM AND ANY OTHER LIES PRESIDENTS COULD TELL TO KEEP CITIZENS FROM KNOWING AMERICA WILL COLLAPSE AS PLANNED BY THE NEW WORLD ORDER; AND THE WILL OF GOD TO ALLOW AS PUNISHMENT.

world-trade-center-p

Whenever a massive lie against humanity has been told over and over enough times through many years, decades, and centuries, most all hearing those lies, [being over seven billion this day] will believe them even if there exists no proof to make them true; and this exact same fact about corrupt lying governments “worldwide” also holds true regarding all religions, beliefs, and false God’s in the same way.

Or does our entire civilization realize they have always been lied to and misled? Thus fully prepared for the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this planet earth which shall not take life from thousands, not hundreds of thousands, and not millions – but billions of lives in many gruesome ways?

Do you consider yourself prepared to receive YHVH’s protection when massive calamities come upon this earth? Have you been following His Book of Instruction known to genuine believers in Yehovah and Yeshua as the Holy Bible?

Psalms 33 001100_1172

I only ask because YHVH shows His mercy to only those He chooses as written in Psalms 33:17-22 and Romans 9:18. So what have you ever done for someone else that would please Him? What in your entire life have you sacrificed, or passed by just for means or a way to help another with simple basic needs like a good meal? Who are the few and who are the many in Isaiah 26:20-21? Our entire worldly civilization has been deceived exactly as written in Revelation 12:9 which include over two billion Christians saying that is not true because they have been saved, forgiven, and not deceived – being the greatest lie they all believe. I have over 25 years of private studies, and have never been a church member or part of any organization on this globe; therefore was called out of this world (John 15:19) ten years ago not only to learn directly from our eternal creator – but also what it truly means to live on faith through a decade of nothingness through becoming as a living sacrifice in day to day existence while experiencing this world of Christianity through their disobedience, greed, and selfish actions they shall be greatly punished for and judged by. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Is there even one person wanting to know why our human race was created? Who Israel really is? Who the Jews are? Why evil? Where humanity has been, is now, and what lies ahead for our entire population with reason why?

This writing with links at the end carry much information all need to know, yet very few will take interest because there is a way which seems right to all humans – until the uncountable different ways of death come upon all. Proverbs 16:25

Don’t want what the Bible says? Then just scroll down to read how the United States Government has always brought much death upon the innocent worldwide through telling lies most all Americans have always believed – just like the Pope telling lies billions of Catholics believe along with the frauds and hypocrites in Christianity accompanied with all religions and beliefs leading our blind human race into their own bath of bloodshed.

What more can be said? Who wants truth? Who believes truth? Whose God is not themselves? Who has no selfish greed like this world of Christians that can’t even supply some Kraft dinners or peanut butter for another Christian in need through ten years of seeing and experiencing them just as YHVH through their dead faith as not doers of the word? James 1:22-25, 2:14-17

Truth is not liked or believed; therefore those that deliver what is not wanted become hated and despised just as Ezekiel and all men of YHVH with unsmooth words, yet regardless we run the race set before us. Hebrews 12

THE SEALS OF REVELATION 6 AS DEFINED BY MATTHEW 24

Revelation, the final book of the Bible, is arguably one of the most difficult to understand.  There have been countless expositions written and numerous sermons preached in an attempt to identify the colorful symbols which populate this prophetic book.  But despite its name, the book of Revelation remains sealed to most who read and study it.  To many, the so-called “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” are as enigmatic today as they were when the apostle John first recorded the visions he received while on the isle of Patmos about 95 CE.

Yet there is a proven way to understand many of the symbols found in Revelation.  That method is to use parallel Scriptures that speak of the same events.  In this article, I will compare the symbolic “seals” opened in the 6th chapter of Revelation to the prophetic words of Messiah Yeshua recorded in Matthew 24.  As you will see, there is an undeniable link between the two passages.

Let’s start by setting the scene for the prophecy found in Revelation 6.  In Revelation 4, John is transported in vision to heaven and sees the very throne of God the Father.  In Revelation 5, John notices that God is holding a scroll in His right hand which is sealed with seven seals (Rev. 5:1).  At first, no one in heaven above or on the earth or under the earth is found worthy to open and read the scroll (Rev. 5:2-4).  But then the Messiah Yeshua appears on the scene, and he is declared worthy to break the seals and open the scroll (Rev. 5:5-7).

After receiving the praises of the heavenly host (Rev. 5:8-14), Messiah begins opening the seals on the scroll in chapter 6:

REVELATION 6:1 Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.”  2 I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (NASU)

The opening of the 1st seal presents a symbolic white horse ridden by one who has a bow and a crown.  Using his weapon and his authority, he went forth warring against and defeating his enemies.  The phrase “conquering and to conquer” alludes to a continual state of warfare on the part of this entity.

REVELATION 6:3 When he broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.”  4 And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. (NASU)

When the 2nd seal was opened, John saw a fiery red horse mounted by a rider carrying a huge sword.  This rider was allowed to initiate widespread warfare on the earth.

REVELATION 6:5 When he broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.”  I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.  6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.” (NASU)

The opening of the 3rd seal revealed a black horse ridden by a man carrying a pair of scales.  The scales were used to weigh out small quantities of very expensive food (a denarius was about a day’s wages in the 1st century).  The command to avoid damaging the oil and wine shows that these, along with food, would be in scarce supply.

REVELATION 6:7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature call out, “Come!”  8 I looked and there was a pale green horse!  Its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed with him; they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and pestilence, and by the wild animals of the earth. (NRSV)

The breaking of the 4th seal revealed the last of the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.”  The horse was the pale green color of decaying flesh, and the rider of this horse was Death himself!  The grave followed after Death, and he was given power to kill 25% of the earth’s population.  This widespread destruction of life was caused by the cumulative effects of all four horsemen.

REVELATION 6:9 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  11 And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also. (NASU)

The opening of the 5th seal symbolically showed the slain martyrs from ages past crying out to God for justice.  However, they were told that the time for justice had not yet come.  There were still a certain number of believers who had to be martyred (as they had been) before God’s wrath would be poured out on those responsible.

REVELATION 6:12 I looked when he broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.  14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.  15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (NASU)

The opening of the 6th seal brings about a great earthquake, which is accompanied by signs in the heavens above.  All of mankind will realize from this awesome spectacle that God is about to execute His wrath through the Messiah upon the wicked.

Now that we’ve looked at the symbolic opening of all six seals in Revelation 6, let’s look at the introduction to Yeshua’s parallel prophecy recorded in Matthew 24:

MATTHEW 24:1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the Temple, and his disciples came up to show him the buildings of the Temple.  2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things?  Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”  3 Now as he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be?  And what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?” (NKJV)

Understandably, Yeshua’s statement about the coming destruction of the Temple caused great concern among his disciples.  After pondering his words, they came to him and asked for additional information on the calamity he had prophesied for the Temple.  Although they likely assumed that the destruction of the Temple and the end of the age would occur at the same time, in fact they asked two separate questions:

  1. WHEN would the Temple be destroyed?
  2. WHAT would be the sign of the Messiah’s coming and the end of the age?

Some of the ensuing prophecy given by Yeshua in response to their questions pertained to the coming destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 CE.  However, those 1st-century events did not completely fulfill the prophecy found in Matthew 24.  Another fulfillment, this one at the end of the age of man which will lead to his return, was the ultimate focus of Messiah Yeshua.

Multiple fulfillments of the same prophecy present one of the greatest difficulties in properly understanding the Bible.  Many times in the Scriptures, we see a prophecy that fits more than one person or event.  The guiding principle for understanding these prophecies was stated by King Solomon in Ecclesiastes.  He tells us “that which has been is what will be, that which has been done is what will be done; there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecc. 1:9).

In such cases, preliminary fulfillment does not completely satisfy or extinguish the prophecy.  In fact, there are two general types of dual prophecies found in the Bible:

  1. Prophecies that are substantially fulfilled by initial events, where subsequent fulfillments are an echo of the first occurrence; and
  2. Prophecies where the initial fulfillment is incomplete, and the comprehensive fulfillment of the prophecy is yet future.

The prophecy found in Matthew 24 is of the second type.  Although some of the information there related to the Roman conquest that would occur 40 years later, the ultimate fulfillment of these events will take place at the time of the end.  This is the same time period covered by the book of Revelation.

Now let’s look at the specifics from Matthew 24:

MATTHEW 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them:  “Take heed that no one deceives you.  5 For many will come in my name, saying I am the Christ, and will deceive many.  6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.  See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.  9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.  10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.  11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” (NKJV)

Contained within this passage are events that closely match the symbolic seals found in Revelation 6 (as shown below).  The next passage (Matt. 24:13-28) includes information about an event that is not specifically mentioned in Revelation 6, but is addressed in Old Testament prophecy:  The siege and capture of Jerusalem by the nations of the world (Zec. 12:2-3; 14:1-2).

While there are many fanciful theories about the nature of the “abomination of desolation” mentioned by Messiah (Matt. 24:15), the primary understanding of it is given in the parallel passage found in Luke’s Gospel.  Luke states that when armies surround Jerusalem, we will know that its desolation is near (Luke 21:20).  Just as Titus and the Roman army surrounded and destroyed Jerusalem in 70 CE (40 years after this prophecy was given), the city will again be subjected to capture in the future, this time by the armies of the world.

After warning those in Jerusalem, Yeshua returns to the events outlined in Revelation 6:

MATTHEW 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (NKJV)

Here we see Yeshua state that immediately after the capture of Jerusalem, signs will appear in the heavens.  These same signs are mentioned in conjunction with the sixth seal (Rev. 6:12-14).

At this point (Matt. 24:30-31) the Messiah skips the first six trumpet judgments detailed in Revelation (Rev. 8:1-11:14) and goes to the final part of the 7th seal, which is the 7th trumpet (Rev. 11:15-19).  An exposition of this part of the prophecy is outside the scope of this article.

Now that we have covered the Scriptures in question, let’s compare the two prophecies to see if any additional understanding can be obtained.  For ease of comparison, let’s look at a side-by-side list of the seals found in Revelation 6 with the corresponding explanatory Scriptures from Matthew 24:

REVELATION 6 MATTHEW 24
1st Seal = ???
Behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Rev. 6:2) “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying I am the Christ, and will deceive many.” (Matt. 24:4-5)
2nd Seal = Widespread Warfare
Another, a fiery red horse, went out.  And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Rev. 6:4) “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” (Matt. 24:6-7)
3rd Seal = Famine
There was a black horse, and its rider held a scale in his hand.  Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!” (Rev. 6:5-6) “There will be famines . . .” (Matt. 24:7)
4th Seal = Death of 1/4 of Mankind from First Four Seals
There before me was a pale green horse!  Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him.  He was given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and pestilence, and by the wild beasts of the earth. (Rev. 6:8) “There will be . . . pestilences and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matt. 24:7-8)
5th Seal = Martyrdom of Believers
I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. (Rev. 6:9-11) “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.  And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.” (Matt. 24:9-10)
6th Seal = Heavenly Signs
Behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.  And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.  Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.(Rev. 6:12-14) “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (Matt. 24:29)

With the apparent exception of the 1st seal, a comparison of the two sets of related Scriptures clearly shows that the symbols revealed in the seals match up with the details of the Olivet prophecy given by Yeshua.  It is obvious that the sword-wielding rider of the fiery red horse (2nd seal) represents widespread warfare between nations, alliances, and even ethnic groups.  The black horse and its scale-carrying rider (3rd seal) symbolizes the scarcity of food that occurs during famine.  The pale green horse and its rider, Death (4th seal), represent the various ways that humans will die from the effects of the “Four Horsemen.”  The souls crying out from under the altar (5th seal) are used to symbolically introduce an end-time martyrdom of believers.  Finally, the signs in the heavens (6th seal) indicate that God is about to punish a sinning and unrepentant humanity.

Since there is such an obvious relationship between most of the elements in these two passages, it’s easy to conclude that they are both referring to the same prophesied events.  But if this is the case, why does the symbolism of the first seal (Rev. 6:2) appear so different from the first event spoken of by Yeshua (Matt. 24:4-5)?  John’s vision seems to imply conquest by a righteous ruler, while Yeshua’s words appear to indicate religious deception.

A hint at why the initial clue is unclear is found in the proverbs of King Solomon:

PROVERBS 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. (NIV)

It is to God’s glory to hide things from mankind, but it is to our glory if we put forth the effort and time to seek out those things that He has concealed.  If the two passages of Scripture in question were easily reconcilable, the beginning of the end of this age and the coming of Messiah would be plainly laid out for all to see.  There would be no need to truly search for understanding.  But due to the apparent differences, many have missed the relationship between these two passages.

Assuming that the first seal IS the same as the warning given by Yeshua, how then do we arrive at a correct understanding of the symbolism?

There is a biblical principle that will guide our understanding in this matter:

ISAIAH 28:10 “For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.” (ESV)

Most who recognize a connection between Revelation 6:2 and Matthew 24:4-5 usually draw their interpretation primarily from one passage or the other, and then try to harmonize the remaining one.  But using the guidance found in Isaiah 28:10, let’s combine one prophecy with the other and see the total picture that emerges.

First, we have to define the symbols from Revelation 6:2 to grasp what we are being told.  The first symbol is that of a WHITE HORSE.  In the Bible (and especially in the book of Revelation, the color white represents “righteousness,” “goodness,” or “purity” (Rev. 3:4-5, 18; 4:4; 6:11; 7:9, 13-14; 19:11, 14).  So the color of the horse is designed to convey to us that, in some sense, the rider is considered good or righteous.

Next, we note that the rider has a BOW for a weapon.  The bow represents “military strength,” especially military strength that can be projected from a great distance.  With the bow, the rider has the ability to strike from long range while being relatively safe from counterattack.

We also see that the rider is given a CROWN.  In the Bible, a crown represents governmental power and the authority to rule.  Therefore, the rider represents a government or ruling entity.

Lastly, we are told that this “good” governmental power uses its military might to successfully wage war.  In fact, the implication of the statement that the rider “went out CONQUERING and TO CONQUER” suggests a continual state of aggressive warfare by this power.

In summary, we have the following symbols and their meaning in the 1st seal:

SYMBOL/ACTION MEANING
White Horse Righteousness, Goodness, Purity
Bow Military Strength (Long-Range)
Crown Rulership, Power, Government
“Went Out Conquering and to Conquer” State of Continual/Perpetual Warfare

Now that we’ve defined the Revelation 6 part of the prophecy, let’s add the factors disclosed by Yeshua from Matthew 24:4-5 to it.  He tells his followers to beware of being DECEIVED.  He states that many would COME IN HIS NAME, claiming that he was the Messiah, and would deceive many.

Without the context of Revelation 6:2, it would be almost impossible to assign this deception to anything other than a strictly religious arena.  However, when all the factors from the two passages are combined, we are left with the following description:

INTERPRETATION SYMBOL/WARNING
A governmental power… Crown
That appears good/righteous… White Horse
Initiates extended warfare… “Went out conquering and to conquer”
Using long range weapons and tactics… Bow
Yet they are deceiving many people… “Take heed that no one deceives you”
While proclaiming the name of Christ. “Many will come in my name”

Does any world power in this modern age fit that description?  Yes!  With the apparent exception of the “widespread deception” attribute, a better question would be “can this prophecy be about any modern nation other than the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?”

Most Americans think that our country represents all that is good and right in the world.  We think of ourselves as the “good guys.”  Many of us dislike the fact that the US government is intruding more and more into our everyday lives.  However, as a nation we are prosperous and wealthy, and we want to believe that the people running our government have our best interests at heart

In response to the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, the leaders of our government have initiated a series of initiatives to protect our “Homeland.”  Shortly after those attacks, President George W. Bush announced his intention to begin a “War on Terrorism.”  On September 18, 2001, the US Congress authorized President Bush to:

Use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons. (Public Law 107-40, S.J. Res. 23)

On September 20, 2001, President Bush presented his response to the attacks in an address to a joint session of the US Congress (and via television and radio to the American people).  In this address, he stated:

Our war on terror begins with al-Qaida, but it does not end there.  It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.

President Bush laid out for the American people the foundation for a decades-long struggle against terrorists and the states that support them.  When America invaded Afghanistan in October 2001, the American public was solidly behind the President.  A slimmer majority also supported the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, believing both actions were necessary to defeat “terrorism.”

However, this “War on Terrorism” is turning out to be exactly what President Bush promised at the onset – a perpetual war allegedly against terrorist groups and the nations that harbor and supply them.  In fact, members of the Bush administration referred to their anti-terrorist policy as the “Long War.”  President Bush used this new name in his 2006 State of the Union speech, when he said:

“Our own generation is in a long war against a determined enemy.” (January 31, 2006)

During his 2007 State of the Union address a year later, the president made this telling statement:

“The evil that inspired and rejoiced in 9/11 is still at work in the world.  And so long as that’s the case, America is still a nation at war.” (January 23, 2007)

Even though the presidential administration has changed since these wars started, America still has tens of thousands of troops on the ground in the Middle East.  However, our military might is not primarily composed of men, but rather of advanced technology.  Just as the bow was the long-range weapon of choice in ancient times, unmanned drones, cruise missiles, jet planes, and “smart” bombs are the modern equivalent.  For instance, some of the bombing missions flown by the US Air Force in the campaign against Iraq originated from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri.  The round trip time for these flights was generally over 30 hours.  Additionally, other combat sorties were flown from the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and off of aircraft carriers stationed in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere.  America has lost relatively few men in their conquests of Afghanistan and Iraq because we were able to attack from a distance that did not allow our adversaries to respond effectively.

But, most will object, this is where the similarities to the prophecies we are studying end.  Certainly our government isn’t perfect, but it’s the best form of human government in our modern world.  How can one say that our government is “deceiving many” people in the name of Christ?

As most Americans would readily admit, the US is predominantly perceived as a Christian nation (although not nearly as much so as 50 years ago).  The American leader at the time of the 9/11 attacks, President George W. Bush, was a member of the Methodist Christian denomination.  He said on several occasions that he recommitted himself to Jesus Christ in 1986 in the process of conquering alcoholism.  When asked what political philosopher he most identified with in a 1999 presidential campaign debate, Bush named Christ, “because he changed my heart.”  Former Vice President Cheney was also a Methodist.  The Republican party these leaders belong to is generally perceived as representing Christian values and ideals.  Many Democrats, especially those from the middle of the country, also identify themselves as Christians.  For the most part, our government appears to be run by people who proclaim themselves to be followers (in one fashion or another) of Jesus Christ.

However, these same leaders who espouse Christ are involved in a massive deception that has already cost thousands of lives and, according to biblical prophecy, is leading to a global war that will claim the lives of well over a billion people.  What is this deception?

It is the very same event that allowed the rider of the white horse to initiate perpetual warfare against terrorists — the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Any unbiased, logical and thorough evaluation of the evidence pertaining to the events of 9/11/01 will quickly reveal a plethora of problems with the official story.  In fact, there are so many holes in the government’s version of what happened on 9/11/01 that it would be amazing for anyone who has taken a detailed looked into this event to NOT have questions.  Some of the problems with the official story are listed below:

EVENTS BEFORE THE ATTACK INDICATED FOREKNOWLEDGE

Financial Market Transactions

In the days before the attacks, significantly higher than average numbers of stock put options (essentially, bets that a company’s stock will decline in value) were placed on several companies greatly impacted by the events of 9/11/01.  These companies included:

  • United Airlines and American Airlines, two of the airlines used in the attacks.
  • Munich Re and the AXA Group, two reinsurance companies that had to cover billions of dollars worth of insurance claims because of the attacks.
  • Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and Bank of America, financial services companies hurt by the attacks.

There was also a huge increase in the number of stock call options (essentially, bets that a company’s stock will increase in value) purchased on Raytheon on the day before the attacks (Raytheon is the maker of Patriot and Tomahawk missiles).

Additionally, there was an abnormally large increase in the purchase of 5-year US Treasury notes (considered to be very safe investments in times of uncertainty) before the attacks.

All of these financial transactions were extremely rewarding after the attacks took place.

Avoidance of the Targets

Just before 9/11/01, high government officials began avoiding the targets of the attacks:

  • Attorney General John Ashcroft stopped flying commercial airlines in July 2001.
  • Pentagon officials canceled travel plans on 9/10/01.
  • San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown received a warning on 9/10/01 not to fly from National Security Advisor (now Secretary of State) Condoleezza Rice.
  • Ariel Sharon, Prime Minister of Israel, canceled plans to address Israeli support groups in New York City (NYC) on 9/11/01.

Additionally, some business leaders and others avoided the targets:

  • Silverstein Properties, the lead company in a consortium that had just obtained a 99-year lease on the World Trade Center in July 2001, was supposed to meet on the 88th floor of one of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers to “discuss what to do in the event of a terrorist attack”; however, this meeting was canceled on the night of 9/10/01.
  • Jim Pierce, President Bush’s cousin, was scheduled to attend a conference on 9/11/01 at his company’s office on the 105th floor of the WTC South Tower.  But the conference was moved to the nearby Millennium Hotel, allegedly because the group was too large.
  • Business executives, some of whom worked in the WTC, were in Nebraska attending a meeting hosted by billionaire Warren Buffett at Offutt Air Force Base on the morning of 9/11/01 (interestingly, President Bush visited that same base later in the day).
  • At a cost of $50,000, Zim American Israeli Shipping Co. broke a lease that extended through the end of the year in order to vacate the World Trade Center just days before the attack.
  • Two employees of Odigo, an Israeli instant messaging service with offices in the World Trade Center, received e-mail warnings of the attack two hours before it occurred.
  • Scotland Yard prohibited Muslim author Salman Rushdie from flying on 9/11/01.

THE HIJACKING SCENARIO

Although the FBI named 19 Arab hijackers responsible for the events of 9/11/01 within two days of the attacks, there is little tangible evidence to support this assertion.

Fatal Flaws in the Hijackers’ Plan of Attack

The entire hijack plan was ill conceived and suffered from numerous logistical problems that should have caused it to fail had the US air defense system been operating normally on 9/11/01:

  • The originating airport for the flights that struck the World Trade Center towers (American Flight 11 and United Flight 175) was Boston Logan instead of any of several airports nearer to NYC.  This created a 40-minute window of exposure for interception of each flight.
  • The flight that reportedly struck the Pentagon (American Flight 77) flew from Dulles Airport in eastern Virginia to the western border of West Virginia before returning to Washington DC.  It was in the air for an hour and 23 minutes before allegedly attacking the Pentagon.  The impact was 83 minutes after the first hijacked flight went off course, 58 minutes after the WTC North Tower impact, and 40 minutes after the WTC South Tower impact.  Yet this jet was not intercepted as it flew over what is normally the most heavily protected airspace in the United States (if not the world).  Even under circumstances of severely reduced US air defenses, there was still ample opportunity to intercept this flight.
  • The flight that reportedly crashed in Pennsylvania (United Flight 93) flew from Newark, New Jersey almost to Cleveland, Ohio before turning around to fly toward Washington DC.  Had it reached its alleged destination, it would have been airborne for over an hour and a half.

 

Under standard air defense operating procedures, the odds of these “hijacked” planes escaping interception with this plan would have been exceedingly small.

Lack of Evidence

There is no solid evidence that any of the alleged hijackers were on any of the hijacked flights.  In fact, there is substantial evidence that some of the identified hijackers definitely were NOT involved:

  • Except for a video allegedly showing the hijackers of Flight 77 released by a third party, no other security video footage of any of the hijackers boarding their flights has been made public.
  • None of the alleged hijackers’ names appeared on the airlines’ passenger lists.
  • At least seven of the alleged hijackers have turned up alive since the attack, and one listed as involved was proven to have died in a small plane crash in Florida in 2000.
  • None of the four flight crews radioed Air Traffic Control to notify them of hijackings in progress.
  • None of the four flight crews took the few seconds necessary to punch in the four-digit hijacking code.
  • No public evidence indicates that the remains of any of the hijackers were identified at any of the crash sites.
  • None of the contents of any of the black boxes from the hijacked planes have been made public.
  • Four and a half minutes of a phone call from Flight 11 Attendant Betty Ong was made public; it describes some stabbings but does not provide any details indicating that Arab hijackers were on board.

Odd Behavior of the Hijackers

The behavior of the alleged hijackers preceding the attack does not exhibit the skill and discipline needed to pull off such an ambitious plan:

  • The alleged hijackers are reported to have visited topless bars and drank alcohol, despite being portrayed as fundamentalist Muslims motivated by religious fervor to carry out the attacks.
  • Allegedly, Mohammed Atta just barely made it to Flight 11 in time to board, although he had supposedly been planning this event for years.

Success of the Hijackers

The proposition that the alleged hijackers were successful using their crude methods and poor skills is difficult to believe:

  • The hijackers supposedly took over four jets using only box cutters.
  • None of the four flight crews were able to stop the alleged hijackers, in spite of several of the pilots being war veterans.
  • None of the alleged hijackers were good pilots, yet three of the four successfully piloted these technologically advanced planes to relatively small targets and hit them with extreme precision.

 LACK OF US AIR DEFENSE RESPONSE

Several elements are involved in domestic air defense of the continental United States.  The air traffic control system continuously monitors air traffic and notifies the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) of any deviations by aircraft from their designated flight paths or loss of radio contact.  NORAD regularly monitors air (and space) traffic and is prepared to react immediately to any threats or emergencies that arise.  It has the authority to order units from the Air Force, the Air National Guard, or any other branch of the armed services to scramble fighters in pursuit of jetliners in trouble.  This is standard operating procedure for the US air defense system.  In the year 2000, interceptors were dispatched a total of 129 times.  Between September 2000 and June 2001, jet fighters were scrambled 67 times.

Despite normal intercept times of between 10 and 20 minutes for domestic flights that go off course or lose radio contact, on 9/11/01 the hijacked planes seemingly roamed the skies at will without interference from the US air defense system.  For some reason, routine interception procedures were not followed on that day.

Reporting Failures

FAA response times for reporting the deviating aircraft were much longer than the prescribed guidelines:

  • According to the official timeline from NORAD, the FAA took 18 minutes to report Flight 11’s loss of communication and deviation from its flight plan.
  • According to the official timeline from NORAD, the FAA took 39 minutes to report Flight 77’s deviation from its flight plan.

Failure to Scramble Interceptors

Interceptors were only scrambled from distant bases after long delays:

  • Despite the fact that Flights 11 and 175 were headed for NYC, no interceptors were scrambled from New York’s La Guardia Airport or from Langley AFB in Virginia.
  • Despite NORAD having received formal notification of the first hijacking at 8:38 am, no interceptors were scrambled from nearby Andrews AFB to protect the Pentagon until after it was hit at 9:37 am.

Failures to Intercept

Once they finally got in the air, interceptors flew at only small fractions of their top speeds, ensuring that they would be unable to intercept the airliners:

  • The two F-15s scrambled from Otis AFB in Massachusetts at 8:52 am flew to Manhattan at an average speed of 483 mph, less than 26% of their top speed of 1,875 mph; they arrived about 8 minutes after Flight 175 had hit the WTC South Tower.
  • The two F-16s scrambled from Langley AFB at 9:30 am to protect the capital flew at an average speed of about 411 mph, just over 27% of their top speed of 1,500 mph; they arrived about 12 minutes after the Pentagon was hit.

Failures to Redeploy

Nearby fighters on routine patrol duty were not redeployed to intercept the airliners, nor were fighters that reached Manhattan too late sent south to defend the capital:

  • Two F-15s flying off the coast of Long Island were not redeployed to Manhattan until after the second WTC tower was hit.
  • The two F-15s scrambled from Otis AFB to protect Manhattan could have reached the capital in under 10 minutes once they arrived over NYC. At that time, there were still 26 minutes remaining before the Pentagon would be hit.

War Games

Several different war game exercises were in process on the morning 9/11/01 as the attack unfolded.  Although there has been only limited information released to the public about these exercises, they reportedly included:

  • Operation Northern Vigilance– This exercise, planned months in advance of 9/11/01, redeployed jets that normally patrolled the northeast sector of the United States to northern Canada and Alaska.  It was allegedly in response to a Russian exercise in which long-range bombers were dispatched to their northern territory.
  • Operations Vigilant Warrior and Vigilant Guardian– These were apparently a pair of war games (attacker versus defender) which involved live-fly simulations of hijackings.  Both this pair of operations and Northern Vigilance probably involved the use of “injects” into actual screens to simulate aircraft.  These games apparently resembled the real attack sufficiently to confuse military officers.
  • The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) Plane Crash Drill– The NRO provides our nation its eyes and ears in space.  It operates a system of reconnaissance satellites to provide real-time monitoring of objects in the skies.  On 9/11/01, NRO headquarters in Chantilly, Virginia were evacuated as part of a drill simulating a small corporate jet crashing into one of the campus’ four towers.
  • The Tripod II Biowarfare Exercise– FEMA had deployed to NYC on 9/10/01 to set up a command post at Pier 29 in preparation for a biowarfare exercise scheduled for 9/12/01.

Interestingly, these exercises closely resembled the actual events of the 9/11/01 attacks (four alleged hijackings, three jetliner crashes into buildings, and the toxic calamity at Ground Zero caused by the building collapses).

WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDING COLLAPSES

On 9/11/01, three skyscrapers (WTC 1-North Tower, WTC 2-South Tower, and WTC 7-Salomon Brothers Building) totally collapsed, with fire given as the primary cause.  Fires have never before or since caused steel-frame buildings to collapse.  One of these buildings, WTC 7, was over 300 feet away from the North Tower and was not hit by a plane.

WTC Twin Towers

Both the Twin Towers fell straight down, through themselves, following the path of maximum resistance, a behavior never before observed in spontaneous collapses of any type of vertical structure.  The towers also exploded outward into concrete dust and shattered steel, a result inconsistent with the known behavior of steel structures outside of explosive demolition.  Although the pattern of destruction was much more complete than normal controlled demolitions, the collapses of both WTC 1 and WTC 2 exhibited features seen only in intentional demolitions:

  • Sudden onset accompanied by thunderous bangs.
  • Visible explosions ringing the perimeters of the buildings.
  • Energetic ejections of dust (called squibs) at regular intervals.
  • The production of a huge amount of dust.

Both towers started to disintegrate both above and below the crash zones in the first few seconds of their falls.  The South Tower collapsed 29 minutes before the North Tower (although it was struck 17 minutes after the North Tower and the damage done to the building was less substantial):

  • Unlike the North Tower, the South Tower’s core structure was largely undamaged by the off-centered jet impact.
  • The South Tower had much less severe fires than the North Tower.
  • Smoke from the fires in the South Tower became progressively darker up to the time it collapsed, indicating that they were dying down.
  • Audio recordings of NYC firefighters indicate that they reached the crash zone of the South Tower; in fact, they described their plan for using two hoses to control the fires found there.

Amazing video footage and photographs of the South Tower just minutes before its collapse reveals yellow-to-white hot molten metal dripping downward.  Additionally, numerous witnesses describe molten metal underneath all three WTC buildings for several weeks after their collapses.  The problem is that the hydrocarbon-fueled fires burning in the WTC buildings were not nearly hot enough to produce the approximately 2,750°F temperatures needed to melt structural steel.  Additionally, the color of the molten metal rules out that it was aluminum from the buildings or planes, since liquefied aluminum is a silvery color.  So how did jet fuel fires which were never hot enough to melt steel cause the steel in these buildings to melt?  Why did this steel remain in a molten state under the WTC rubble for several weeks after 9/11/01?

WTC Building 7

WTC 7 imploded at 5:20 pm on 9/11/01 (approximately 20 minutes AFTER its collapse was announced live on British television by the BBC news crew covering the events of 9/11/01 from New York).  As mentioned earlier, it was not hit by a jet.  WTC 7 experienced total collapse, allegedly because of fires; however, no steel-frame building before or since has ever totally collapsed due to fire.  This building was a 47-story steel-frame skyscraper.  Only small fires were visible in it on 9/11/01.  Yet this building also collapsed in an almost perfectly vertical fall into a remarkably small pile of mostly pulverized rubble.  Buildings only 60 feet on either side of WTC 7 were virtually unscathed from its collapse.

A close observation of the collapse of WTC Building 7 shows that it had all of the features of an implosion engineered by controlled demolition:

  • The collapse of the main structure commenced suddenly (several seconds after the penthouse fell).
  • The building sank precisely into its footprint in a vertical manner.
  • Puffs of dust (squibs) emerged from the building’s facade early in the collapse, moving up the side of the building instead of downward (as would normally be expected in an unaided top-down collapse).
  • The collapse was total, producing a rubble pile only about three stories high.
  • The main structure totally collapsed in under 7 seconds, essentially at the speed of free fall; for comparison, WTC 7 collapsed only about a second slower than it would have taken a brick dropped from the building’s roof to reach the ground in a vacuum.

WTC Building 7 was home to quite a few interesting tenants:

  • NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management had a bomb-hardened command bunker located on the 23rd floor (interestingly, he evacuated his emergency management team to a makeshift command center just as soon as the 9/11/01 attacks began).
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had offices on the 11th, 12th, and 13th floors.  Reportedly, the SEC’s offices housed a large amount of evidence for 3,000-4,000 ongoing insider trading cases that was lost when WTC 7 collapsed.
  • The US Secret Service had offices on the 9th and 10th floors.
  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had offices on the 24th and 25th floors.
  • Reports later surfaced that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) also had secret offices located in WTC 7.

Suppression of Physical Evidence

The physical evidence from the World Trade Center buildings, as well as the attacking jets, was suppressed or systematically destroyed:

  • Controlled Demolition, Inc. submitted a plan for recycling the WTC steel only 11 days after the attack and received approval.
  • Most of the steel was quickly shipped to Asia for recycling.
  • Investigators were barred from the crime scene and had little or no chance to examine the steel.
  • None of the contents of the four black boxes from the hijacked jetliners has been released.
  • The National Transportation Safety Board was not allowed to investigate the jet airliner crashes.

 PENTAGON ATTACK

In many ways, the Pentagon attack is the most difficult to accept.  It defies logic that this home to the military establishment of the world’s mightiest superpower and prime terrorist target would NOT have been defended.  It also seems very unlikely that a terrorist using a plane as a weapon would have targeted the back side of the Pentagon in an extremely precise aerobatic maneuver, instead of just hitting the front side in a simple head-on collision.

Unprotected Target

The Pentagon was hit after ample warning was given that hijacked planes were being used to attack high profile buildings.  The 9:37 am impact occurred well over an hour after the first signs of a hijacking and 34 minutes after the South Tower strike confirmed that an attack was underway.  Even though the Pentagon is only about 10 miles from Andrews Air Force Base, where two combat-ready fighter wings were stationed on 9/11/01, no meaningful defensive action was undertaken to protect the Pentagon.  The inbound aircraft was monitored on radar as it approached Washington DC.  In addition, a military C-130 (seen over the Pentagon immediately after the impact) was reportedly dispatched to observe the aircraft.  But no interceptors were sent to stop the incoming plane.

Unqualified Hijacker/Pilot

None of the alleged hijackers were good pilots; none had ever flown jets, let alone large technologically advanced commercial jetliners.  However, probably the most ill-equipped of them was the alleged hijacker/pilot of Flight 77, Hani Hanjour:

  • Hanjour attended a flight school in Scottsdale, Arizona for four months in 1996 and 1997, but he never completed the coursework for a single-engine aircraft license.
  • Failing his courses at the Arizona flight school he was attending didn’t seem to bother Hanjour.  According to an employee there, “He didn’t care about the fact that he couldn’t get through the course.”
  • In August 2001, Hanjour attempted to rent a small plane from an airport in Bowie, Maryland.  After taking Hanjour on three test runs to ensure that he could actually fly, his request to rent the plane was declined.  The flight instructors who flew with him noted that he had trouble controlling and landing the small single engine Cessna 172.

It is questionable that even a well-trained fighter pilot could have executed the maneuver that supposedly crashed a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon. It required making a tight 320-degree turn while descending 7,000 feet in about three minutes, then leveling out so as to fly low enough over the highway west of the Pentagon to knock down 40-foot tall lamp posts.  After crossing the highway, the pilot had to take the plane to within mere feet of the ground in order to crash into the Pentagon at the first-floor level while managing to avoid impacting the lawn.  To top it all off, he had to do all of this while flying at a speed exceeding 520 mph by the time the plane crashed.

The spiral dive approach to the Pentagon was such an extreme maneuver that experienced air traffic controllers watching on radar thought it was a military jet.  The tree-top final approach skimmed objects in the yard and crashed the plane into the first floor of the building.  Experienced pilots have wondered if any human pilot could have executed the maneuver.  Quite a feat for Hani Hanjour, who couldn’t control a single engine prop plane and who had never sat in the cockpit of a jet.

Attack Hit the Only Hardened Part of the Pentagon

The location of the impact was Wedge One, one of five radial sections of the building.  It was being renovated, and was only five days from completion when the attack occurred.  The renovation program included the following improvements to the building:

  • Exterior walls reinforced with steel.
  • Exterior walls backed with Kevlar.
  • Installation of blast-resistant windows.
  • Installation of fire sprinklers.
  • Installation of automatic fire doors.
  • Creation of a building operations and control center.

The renovated area was the only part of the Pentagon with a sprinkler system, and it had been reconstructed to withstand bomb blasts. Because of the renovation, the stricken portion of the building was sparsely occupied.  While about 4,500 people normally would have been working in the targeted area, because of the renovation work only about 800 were actually there.

More than half of the people listed as missing after the attack worked in the Pentagon’s Naval Command Center.  These personnel were moved into the remodeled areas shortly before the attack.  Of the thousands of people in the building at the time of the attack, only 125 people were killed.  Of those, none were high-level officials.  Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was safe in his office on the opposite side of the building.

The fact that the attack targeted the one portion of the building that was mostly vacant is all the more remarkable considering the approach required by the aircraft blamed for the damage.  According to National Transportation Safety Board information recently acquired via the Freedom of Information Act, American Airlines Flight 77 approached Washington DC from the west northwest on a heading of 99 degrees.  Instead of attacking the huge building in a direct fashion, which would have required simply descending into the Pentagon, the jet executed a 320-degree descending spiral toward the south, losing over 7,000 feet of altitude before leveling out at nearly tree-top height as it made its final approach from the southwest.  Additionally, this spiral approach added approximately three minutes to the flight time of the aircraft (time which COULD have been used to intercept the plane).

Lack of Physical Evidence

Due to a suppression of physical evidence by the government, the truth about what actually hit the Pentagon on 9/11/01 remains shrouded in mystery and is the subject of heated arguments among skeptics of the official account.  Immediately after the attack, authorities systematically set out to confiscate, destroy or suppress the evidence:

  • Video recordings from an adjacent gas station and nearby hotels were seized by the FBI very shortly after the attack.  Additionally, traffic monitoring video cameras along the nearby highways maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation have not been released.
  • Recordings of security video cameras around the Pentagon have not been publically released.  Up until recently, only five frames of security video had been made public (and then only as an unofficial leak) from all the security cameras that monitor the periphery of the Pentagon.  An additional release of video on 5/16/06 due to a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch added nothing of value to what was already available.
  • A photographed scrap of aircraft debris that has markings similar to an American Airlines 757 seemingly corresponds to the forward portion of the right side of the plane, yet the scrap was far to the left of the plane’s path.
  • Few photographs of the Pentagon’s interior prior to removal of debris have been publically released.
  • Investigators were not allowed access to the crash site until well into October 2001.
  • The government has refused to disclose the fate of aircraft debris collected at the Pentagon or disclose the results of any attempts to identify the aircraft parts.
  • The government has implausibly insisted that the black boxes recovered from the crash yielded nothing useful.

The government’s behavior regarding the physical evidence could be due to several reasons.  The military has a penchant for secrecy, which has been heightened by the atmosphere of national emergency produced by the 9/11/01 attack.  However, they also could be attempting to suppress evidence that would disprove the crash of Flight 77.  Finally, it’s worth considering that they are now suppressing evidence that would prove the crash of a Boeing 757 in order to use this information at a later date to derail “conspiracy theorists” who have taken the position that Flight 77 did NOT hit the Pentagon.

CASUALTIES FROM THE ATTACKS

The death toll of the attacks, although horrible, was much lower than it should have been if not for numerous favorable target selection and timing factors.

Flights

All four flights had low occupancy rates:

  • Flight 11 had a capacity of 158, but had only 76 passengers on board (not counting the alleged hijackers).
  • Flight 175 had a capacity of 166, but had only 46 passengers on board (not counting the alleged hijackers).
  • Flight 77 had a capacity of 188, but only had 50 passengers on board (not counting the alleged hijackers).
  • Flight 93 had a capacity of 182, but only had 26 passengers on board (not counting the alleged hijackers).

World Trade Center

The towers were attacked before most people had arrived for work, and were hit high enough to allow most who were there to escape.

  • When Flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 am, the World Trade Center buildings were at less than half the occupancy they would have by mid-day of a typical day.
  • WTC 1 was hit just 15 stories below the top, and most of the people who were trapped were between the 95th and 110th floors.
  • WTC 2 was hit only 30 stories below the top, and the plane missed the core of the building, allowing people to evacuate from above the impact zone.  The 17 minutes that had elapsed from the first hit also allowed many people to escape the South Tower while the elevators were still working.

Pentagon

The portion of the Pentagon that was attacked, the West Block, was in the process of being renovated, and so was at low occupancy.

  • 125 people were killed in a building containing 20,000 people.
  • No high-level Pentagon officials were killed in the attack.

STRANGE COINCIDENCES

Many events and decisions in the days and months preceding the attacks helped to make the incompetence theory more plausible:

Rules Changes

Procedural changes limited the ability of pilots and military commanders to respond to hijackings:

  • A 6/1/01 order stripped field commanders of the autonomy to respond to hijackings.
  • The FAA banned firearm possession by commercial pilots two months before the attack.

Where Were They?

Several top officials, including the President of the United States, were not available until after the attack was over:

  • President Bush remained at the publicized location of Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida until about a half-hour after the news of the attack went on worldwide TV, first listening to second grade students read about a girl and her pet goat, and then holding a press conference.
  • General Richard Myers, Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, allegedly remained in a meeting with Senator Max Cleland until nearly the time the Pentagon was hit.
  • Brigadier General Montague Winfield had Navy Captain Charles J. Leidig, Jr. (a rookie) assume his watch as Deputy Director for Operations for the National Military Command Center (NMCC) at 8:30 am on 9/11/01; he relieved him after the attack was over.

GOVERNMENT RESPONSES

What was the government response to all the alleged incompetence displayed on 9/11/01 that allowed the hijackers to succeed in their attacks?  Did those in positions of authority have to take responsibility for the lapses that left thousands dead?  Were they fired or demoted?

Despite the worst failure in history of the military to protect American civilians, and the worst alleged engineering failures in history, there were no honest investigations and no consequences for the responsible authorities.

Air Defense Failures

No one was held accountable for the numerous unprecedented failures in air defense:

  • General Richard Myers, Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11/01, was confirmed as Chairman two days later despite being unable to provide any meaningful answers to questions regarding the air defense failures.
  • General Richard Eberhard, commander of NORAD on 9/11/01, was promoted to head the newly created US Northern Command (NORTHCOM), which took the homeland defense role from the US Joint Forces Command.
  • NORAD’s official press release contradicted early statements by high-ranking officials that no interceptors had been scrambled on 9/11/01.
  • NORAD’s vague timeline raises far more questions than it answers, yet officials have never been required to give a full account of the discrepancies.
  • The 9/11 Commission later advanced a new timeline which contradicted NORAD’s earlier timeline and the testimony of military officials to the Commission itself.

Building Collapse Inquiry

Based on the official story, the total collapses of WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC 7 were the three largest engineering failures in history.  How were they investigated?

  • FEMA was given the sole authority to investigate the collapses even though it is not an investigative agency.
  • The investigative team assembled by FEMA consisted of unpaid volunteers.
  • The investigators were not allowed access to Ground Zero.
  • The investigators were not provided with the blueprints of the buildings.
  • The resulting FEMA report states that the causes of the collapse “remain unknown at this time.”  By the time the report was released, disposal of all the WTC steel had been completed.  The fact that WTC 7 supposedly failed in a way that contradicts a century of engineering experience makes it the largest and least understood structural failure in history.
  • The 9/11 Commission Report failed to even mention the existence of WTC Building 7.
  • The 9/11 Commission Report denied the existence of the Twin Towers’ core structures.
  • The report by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on the collapse of the WTC Towers purports to provide a “probable collapse sequence” for each Tower but truncates its timelines before the collapses even begin.

 

As you can see, there are hundreds of legitimate questions about what actually took place on 9/11/01.  Yet, even given this volume of evidence and uncertainty, many will reject outright the possibility of such an enormous deception by the American government.  They will do so without any investigation of the facts, on the grounds that no one would be audacious enough to try and pull off such a huge lie. 

However, German Nazi leader Adolph Hitler wrote about just such a deception in his defining work, Mein Kampf  (“My Struggle”):

. . . In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.  It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.  Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.  For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.  These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. . . . (p. 134, James Murphy translation)

Hitler, while Chancellor of Germany, went on to implement his version of the “big lie” when he approved a plan to torch the Reichstag building in Berlin where the elected members of government met daily.  The Reichstag building was burned on the night of 2/27/33, and Hitler was able to blame this act on his rivals, the Communist Party in Germany.  This act, and his response to it, paved the way for Hitler to become the dictator of Nazi Germany.

Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda and allegedly one of those involved in the planning of the Reichstag fire, had this to say about his leader’s “big lie” concept:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.  The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Conclusion

With the understanding of the first seal, we can now complete our outline of Revelation 6:

REVELATION 6 MATTHEW 24
1st Seal = American Empire
Behold, a white horse.  He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Rev. 6:2) “Take heed that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, saying I am the Christ, and will deceive many.” (Matt. 24:4-5)
2nd Seal = Widespread Warfare
Another, a fiery red horse, went out.  And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Rev. 6:4) “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.  See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” (Matt. 24:6-7)
3rd Seal = Famine
There was a black horse, and its rider held a scale in his hand.  Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!” (Rev. 6:5-6) “There will be famines . . .” (Matt. 24:7)
4th Seal = Death of 1/4 of Mankind from First Four Seals
There before me was a pale green horse!  Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him.  He was given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and pestilence, and by the wild beasts of the earth. (Rev. 6:8) “There will be . . . pestilences and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matt. 24:7-8)
5th Seal = Martyrdom of Believers
I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”  Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. (Rev. 6:9-11) “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.  And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.” (Matt. 24:9-10)
6th Seal = Heavenly Signs
Behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.  And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.  Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.(Rev. 6:12-14) “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” (Matt. 24:29)

If this understanding of prophecy is accurate, the United States of America is currently on a course that will soon lead directly to World War III.  How is it possible that the people of America have been deceived so comprehensively?  The apostle Paul outlines the likely reason in II Thessalonians 2:10-12.  He states that God will send strong delusion upon people at the time of the end, and they will believe the lie because they have no love for the truth and take pleasure in unrighteousness.  Unfortunately, that description fits much of the American population these days.

While we as believers can do nothing but pray about the situation and ask for God’s protection in the great tribulation that lies ahead, it is comforting to understand WHY these prophesied events are going to happen.  May the Eternal Father keep and protect His people as we witness the birth pangs of the coming kingdom of God!
