Sept 14, 2014 At the sound of the drum we march blindly to WWIII, an expose of the causes!

leave a comment »

It is a fact of the world we live in that the majority of the public is manipulated by forces that they can not and do not understand.

The article by pastor Bob is well documented and researched. It exposes these forces that control governments and economies. Behind them is Lucifer and the power of the demonic spirits he controls.

Thank you pastor Bob for your well articulated and researched post.

Pastor Bob (7 Sep 2014)
“All Roads Lead to Rome -5″


All Doves:

So much of our world today is little more than smoke and mirror theater, designed to confuse, deceive, and distract the public from the reality that is masked by propaganda.  The reader needs to be aware that you and I are both the prize and the victim of the coming Jesuit-controlled One-World-Order.  Our only hope is the Lord Christ Jesus and the safest place we can be is “in Christ”.

The master of propaganda (advertising) was an Austrian by the name of Edward Bernay, recognized by the business world as the author of public relations, and back in 1928, he wrote a book ‘History is a Weapon’, which lays out his work on “propaganda”. When he died in 1995, his obituary named him “the father of public relations”.  It was required reading in one of my courses in college as a history major.  It is so popular that anyone can access it freely today on the Internet.  Bernay combined the ideas of crowd psychology and, along with the psycho-analytical ideas of his uncle Sigmund Freud.  He was once named one of the most influential 100 Americans of the 20th century by ‘Life’ magazine.

This man influences you today, despite your not knowing it.  If you watch television, read a magazine, a newspaper, or pop-up on your computer, you have been touched by Edward Bernay’s work.  The “Low Information” people of the world are often referred to as the “sheeple”, which is a generic blanket term used to describe the “manipulated”.  He developed and refined the concept of the “press release” and took credit for breaking the cultural taboo of women smoking in public.

I mention Edward Bernay as an example of what has been taking place in the press and media since May of this year.  You may have noticed the drumbeat of the press, politicians, and corporate types calling for war with Russia in the Ukraine.  The Obama administration has lied repeatedly about the need to crush Russia in the Ukraine.  Between the EU, NATO, and the USA, being spearheaded by Obama, they want war.  They are trying to provoke a war for which they can blame it on the Russians and Mr. Putin.  They have tried to pin the blame for the downing of the Malaysian commercial jet over Ukrainian air space on Russia and eastern-Ukraine rebels, saying  that it was shot down by a Russian ground-to-air missile, when in reality, after examination of wreckage debris, it was confirmed that it was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet with an air-to-air missile and 30mm bullet holes in the forward portion of the commercial jet.  Then on several occasions they published news reports that Russian combat units had crossed over the border into the Ukraine.  In fact, they even put video on television for the public to believe that these attacks were real, when in fact, they were nothing more than footage from a video game.

The plain and simple facts are that the EU, NATO, and the USA want to start a war with Russia and Vladimir Putin has refused to take their bate in the traps being baited and set for him and the state of Russia.  As of a few days ago, Russian leaders set for a peace treaty plan for the eastern portion of the Ukraine now in dispute.  The EU, NATO, and Obama has disingenuously responded by offering more sanctions against the Russians, and they are assembling a military contingent of 10,000 quick or rapid-response force element to be used at a time when they deem appropriate to attack the eastern Ukraine.  All of this war rhetoric is going to end badly because sanctions will be met with counter-sanctions, etc, etc.  The international banksters are driving the propaganda rhetoric to bring on the Third World War visioned by Masonic Grandmaster, Albert Pike.

In response to the west’s tightening the screws on Putin, Putin warned the west as they were meeting for strategy meetings in Wales over the Labor Day week, Putin put out the message, reminding the EU/NATO in the west not to mess with Russia; and to remind them that Russia has nuclear weapons, huge nukes, and as a last resort they would use them if pushed into a corner.  Just after Labor Day, Putin dumped into the public media, the evidence and details of who was really responsible for the infamous September 11th World Trade Towers attacks.  The information in that report, which I provided the link to in my post “All Secrets Known” notes the passages in the Bible where we are explicitly told that all things hidden will be exposed in the end of days.

I’m suggesting to the reader that once that report becomes known, far and wide, in the greater public arena, this could become the chief reason the world turns against Israel as the Bible notes in several places.   It will so anger the Christian community, which is made up of many different groups that support Israel, sometimes blindly so.  And for those that did not like Israel before, this news will be simply more bad news with sovereign states becoming more incensed to learn that Israel, with the US and UK approval are complicit and responsible for the several thousand that died that day and continue to die as a result of being poisoned by radioactive fallout from the inhaled dust that resulted in the vaporization of the World Trade Towers.

The consequence of Vladimir Putin releasing the truth, previously classified as “state secrets” until this release, about who is responsible for 9 – 11 may precipitate further sanctions by the EU/NATO/USA ratcheting up the tension.  It may be the fuse that sets off the entire chain of events that lead to the Ezekiel 39 war scenario.  We know from the Bible what happens to Gog and Magog, but we have no indication of what happens to its opponents responsible for destroying Gog and Magog.  From the perspective of Russia, it would be a natural response, if not a given, to expect Russia to retaliate with nukes as a last resort. Vladimir Putin is waging a counter-attack by asymetrical-warfare.  I monitor a web site that shows in real-time “cyber-attacks” against the US and the country’s computer systems.  It should be noted that it also shows “cyber-attacks” by the USA as well.  The “state-secret” that Vladimir Putin released last week are an indictment of the George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush administration, and are an indictment of the State of Israel, as well as a number of countries that benefited from their corruption and evil acts.  Revelation 9:18 describes what would most likely be a nuclear exchange war that will destroy 1/3rd of human life on Earth.

All this is prefatory history that really speaks to who really is behind the “big picture” of using war to bring about a final “Holy War” that will bring into existence a Satanic “One-World-Order”.  What I share in this series is easily discerned once you know and understand who it is that was originally revealed in the writings of Masonic Grandmaster Albert Pike in the 19th century.  Very few outsiders know about the intimate plans of Albert Pike and the architects of the New World Order.  Based upon a vision revealed to him, Albert Pike wrote a blueprint of events that would play themselves out in the 20th century, with more of these events to come.  But first a little background on Albert Pike.

Albert Pike was born in Boston, MA on December 29th, 1809.  He studied at Harvard, and later served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army.  After the Civil War he was found guilty of treason and jailed, only to be pardoned by fellow Freemason President Andrew Johnson on April 22, 1866, who met with him the next day at the White House.  On June 20th, 1867, Scottish Rite officials conferred on President Johnson, the 4th to 32nd Freemasonry degrees, and then later that day Pike went on to Boston to dedicate a Masonic Temple.

From everything we know about Albert Pike, he was brilliant, a genius, able to read and write in 16 different languages.  At various stages of his life, he was a poet, philosopher, frontiersman, soldier, humanitarian and philanthropist.  As a 33rd degree Freemason, he was one of the founding fathers, and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 until his death in 1891.  Leaders of Freemasonry will deny it, but evidence has long since been known that Pike was a top leader in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan or KKK.

Albert Pike was a Satanist, dabbled in the occult realm, and he apparently possessed a bracelet which he used to summon Lucifer, with whom he had constant communications.  Its incidental whether one believes that or not, but it is reported on by many different scholars that have spent their careers researching Pike.  He was the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the ‘Order of the Palladium’ (Sovereign Council of Wisdom), which had been founded in Paris in 1737.  Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras in the 5th century, and it was the cult of Satan that was introduced to the inner circle of the Masonic Lodges.  It was aligned with the Palladism of the Templars.  In 1801, Isaac Long, a Jew, brought a statute of Baphomet (Satan) to Charleston, South Carolina where he helped to establish the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite with Pike.  Long apparently chose Charleston, SC because it was geographically located on the 33rd parallel of latitude (as is Baghdad, Iraq), and this Council is considered to be the Mother Supreme Council of all Masonics in America.  While some scholars say it is for the entire world, I would not agree.  Tim Cohen author of ‘Antichrist and a Cup of Tea’ says the world’s senior lodge is “The Order of the Garter” in Wales, where Prince Charles and his son William are installed as members of the ‘Knights of the Roundtable’.  All Masons report to the Lodge known as the “Order of the Garter”.  I have included Tim Cohen’s book on the running bibliography below.  Keep in mind my note from the last post, that the Jesuits infiltrated Freemasonry right from the beginning.  There was a grand merger of Illuminized Freemasonry and Vatican Jesuits, set up by the Jesuits on June 29, 1963, and known as the ‘Masters of the Illuminati’.  Now deceased, Jesuit Fr. Malachi Martin, reported this event in one or two of his books.

Albert Pike was Isaac Long’s successor, and he changed the name of the Order to the ‘New and Reformed Palladian Rite’ (or Reformed Palladium).  It isn’t necessary to go into all the various degrees of Freemasonry at this point, other than to note that it is in the 19th degree of Freemasonry that one finds out who the god of Freemasonry is, none other than the adversary himself, ‘Lucifer’.  As part of the ritual in Masonry, as a person chooses to rise in the Lodge, the initiate is always asked “what is it that they are seeking, and their response is always to be “more light”.”  Albert Pike’s book ‘Morals and Dogma’, the Masonic Bible is given to every Lodge member, and is to be returned on the death of the Lodge brother.  Because it doesn’t always happen, copies often appear in old bookstores.  Pastor Mike Hoggard of the Watchman Video Broadcast acquired his copy that way.  I got mine through the death of an uncle.

Pike’s right-hand man was Phileas Walder, from Switzerland, who was a former Lutheran clergyman, a Masonic leader, occultist, and spiritualist.  Pike worked closely with Giuseppe Mazzini of Italy (1805-1872), who was a 33rd degree Mason, and who became head of the Illuminati in 1834, and who also founded the Mafia in 1860.  Together with Mazzini, Lord Henry Palmerston of England (1784-1865), a 33rd degree Mason, and Otto von Bismarck from Germany (1815-1898), a 33rd degree Mason, Albert Pike intended to use the Palladium Rite to create a Satanic umbrella group that would tie all Masonic groups together.  In the United States, every state has a Grand Lodge that oversees the local lodges in communities within their state.  They are everywhere in the country.  I currently live in a small village in a rural county, and the county seat has a lodge directly across the street from where I get a haircut.

The important point to remember is that not all Masonic Lodge members are Satanic or evil, in most cases they are there merely for the contacts the fraternity brings in what they can use to enhance their own contacts in business activities.  Freemasonry, is much more than a secret society of secrets, “Its a society with secrets” as S.Brent Morris expresses it, in his formal capacity as consultant to the History Channel documentaries on Freemasonry.  The reader would benefit by examining this 33rd degree high-ranking Freemason’s bio/vitae on the Internet.  Masons never allow the name of Jesus Christ to be expressed within the Lodge.  You can be a Mason, even if you are a Christian, a Jew, or a Muslim.  Just never mention the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Lodge.  Their god is referred to as the Great Architect of the Universe.  Masonry is built on a “dualistic” structure and their motto is “Do what thou will”.  More about all that at another time.

Wherever I have been an appointed United Methodist pastor to a local church, it was only a matter of months before I would be approached and invited to a Lodge breakfast, usually hosted at another church where the pastor was a Lodge brother, to introduce me to the good works the Lodge does, and to interest me in becoming a Mason.  The person that invited me usually was a church member, and they would offer to sponsor me in joining the Lodge if I was interested in joining.  The organization say they don’t recruit but that is nothing but a deception.  The Lodge today recruits the brightest minds of the Greek fraternities on college and university campuses today.  Having members of the clergy as Lodge brothers gives an informal image of tacit approval and thus take advance of the credulity of people.  My impression is that they do not give up easy when it comes to recruiting a pastor or clergyman.  They don’t take “no” for an answer and come back again the next year when they have their next recruiting breakfast.

Albert Pike died on April 2, 1891, and was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, although the corpse of Pike currently lies in the headquarters of the Council of the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in Washington, DC.  Albert Pike made his mark before the war in Arkansas as a lawyer and writer.  But as a Confederate Brigadier-General (one star), according to the ‘Arkansas Democrat’ of July 31, 1978, he was a complete “WASH-OUT”, not a hero.  That fact notwithstanding, General Albert Pike is the only Confederate general with a statute on U.S. Federal property in Washington, DC.  I’ll give you three guesses as to why this is so.  He was honored as the Southern regional leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.  The statute stands on a granite pedestal near the foot of Capitol Hill, between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street NW.

I’m going to shift focus here and take the reader back to the era of the hatched plan of the Illuminati at the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad, the point at which the idea of a One-World-Order was conceived.  Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811) formed the Order of Perfectibilists on May 1, 1776 (May Day) observed throughout the world by anarchists, communists, and revolutionaries alike.  Adam Weishaupt, a Jew, was a Jesuit that taught Canon (Church) Law at the University of Ingolstadt.  The name was changed to the ‘Illuminati’ (meaning the enlightened ones).  This era in history is referred to as the period of the “Enlightenment”.  Unfortunately, public schools long ago whitewashed the term and give the impression that it was a time of great cultural advancement and intellectual freedom.

All that I post in this series is relevant and important to understanding the central idea of this series of posts, that all roads lead to Rome.  The Illuminati was founded under the pretext to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas, but Weishaupt’s Jesuit background influenced both the background, character, and direction of the Illuminati, such that the expressed dominant aim of the Order became to abolish Protestant Christianity, and overturn all civil government.  As I note this I am reminded of a story on the wire September 3rd of 2014 about the fact that Pope Francis made a statement that has angered many of his constituency.  He tweeted a statement that angered Christians in general.  Such a statement even to Roman Catholics was controversial but even more it reflected the Pope’s ignorance of the Bible in related statements about distinctions between Christians and Catholics.  The exact words of his “tweet” were, The Christian who does not feel that the Virgin Mary is his or her mother is an orphan.”

An Italian revolutionary leader, Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872), a 33rd degree Mason, was selected by the Illuminati to head their worldwide organization in 1834.  Keep in mind, Mazzini founded the Mafia in 1860.  This ought to tell you what kind of a character he was.  Because of his revolutionary activities in Europe, the Bavarian government (Germany) cracked down on the Illuminati and other secret societies for allegedly plotting a massive overthrow of Europe’s monarchies.  As the Illuminati’s secrets were revealed, they were persecuted and eventually disbanded, only to re-establish themselves inside the other organizations of which Freemasonry was the key fraternity to host the parasitic worm of the Illuminati.

During Mazzini’s leadership, he enticed Albert Pike into the (now formally disbanded, but still operating) Illuminati.  Pike was fascinated by the idea of a one-world-government, and when asked by Mazzini, he readily agreed to write a ritual that guided the transition from average high-ranking Masons into a top-ranking Illuminati Mason (33rd degree).  Masonic degrees above the 32nd are extended only by invitation.  The lower degrees are granted by classes and tuition fees.  Since Mazzini also wanted Pike to head the Illuminati’s American chapter, he clearly felt Pike was worthy of such a task.  Mazzini’s intention was that once a Mason had made his way up the Freemason ladder and proven himself worthy, the highest ranking members would offer membership to the ‘society within a society’.  During this process the higher-degree Masons would observe and assess the loyalty of those seeking “more light”.

It is precisely this reason that most Freemasons vehemently deny the evil intentions of their fraternity.  Since the vast majority never reach the 30th degree, (most only complete the first 3-degrees of the Blue Lodge) they would not be aware of the real purpose behind Masonry.  When instructing Pike how the rituals should be developed, Mazzini wrote a letter explaining why extreme secrecy was to be maintained between the Lodge and its different degrees system.  The letter was dated January 22, 1870, and is well-known as to its content today.  The key point is to remember is that Freemasonry wasn’t started by Pike, rather it was infiltrated by the Illuminati (i.e. Jesuits), who were looking for respectability in a forum in which to hide their clandestine activities.  Pike as a Satanist became the individual that reorganized it, wrote its degree-system of hierarchy.  While every Mason is given a copy of Pike’s Masonic bible, ‘Morals and Dogma’, few ever read it.  It’s a good treatment for insomnia.

After Mazzini’s death on March 11, 1872, Albert Pike appointed Adriano Lemmi (1822-1896), a 33rd degree Mason, and a banker from Florence, Italy, to run their subversive activities in Europe.  Lemmi was a supporter of patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, and may have been active in the Luciferian Society founded by Pike.  Lemmi, in turn, was succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin.  The revolutionary activities of all these men were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers; all of them dominated by the House of Rothschild.

In addition to the Supreme Council in Charleston, SC, Pike went on to establish 23 Supreme Councils throughout the world.  In a future post, I will cover the interesting background to the selection of Washington, DC to be the Capitol of the USA.  The property that made up the 10-square-mile area known as the District of Columbia was donated to George Washington’s federal government by the Daniel Carroll family and brother of Roman Catholic Jesuit Bishop John Carroll, who also founded the renown Jesuit Georgetown University.  The property known as the District of Columbia was recorded in 1663 in Maryland property records as new “Rome“, and the specific property was owned by a John Pope, later acquired by the Daniel Carroll family.  The southern border of the land was named for the Tiber River in Rome, Italy.  Today, we know it as the Potomac River.

Incidentally, Rome is built on seven hills described in Revelation -(Revelation 17:1-9,18), but it might surprise you that Washington, DC (once called new Rome) is also built on seven hills.  They are:

1.  Capitol Hill
2.  Meridian Hill
3.  Floral Hills
4.  Forest Hills
5.  Hillbrook
6.  Hillcrest
7.  Knox Hill

In Biblical prophecy, at the end of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed.  Will this city be Rome or Washington, DC?  Makes you wonder!

It is not conspiracy theory that Washington, DC was founded by Jesuits and Freemasons.  It is a stone fact of history of Freemasonry,  It is a well known Masonic fact that George Washington, himself was a Freemason, as were 25 of his Revolutionary Army generals were as well.  Mayor Charles Pierre L’Enfant, a French Catholic and Freemason designed the layout of the city.  Tupper Saussy in his book, ‘Rulers of Evil’ traced early property plot records and discovered the survey plot number for the White House was originally lot #666, located at the base of the upside down Baphomet symbol, visible only from the air above the White House.  If you are a skeptic, you can access this book on the Internet and read it for yourself.  Jesuits and Freemasons are deeply involved in the ongoing relationship between Washington, DC, the Vatican in Rome, and the Crown at London, England.  These three cities are all independent city-states.  Google to see the flag for the District of Columbia.  The flag contains three red stars above two red bars against a white background.  This was said to have been taken from General Washington’s coat-of-arms by the designer himself and later led to the adoption of the flag in 1938.  Keep in mind that within Freemasonry, things, symbols, signs, objects often hide their true meanings and while often have hidden dual meanings, they are hidden in plain sight.

President George Washington was a Deist, and supposedly a member of the Church of England, but Catholic web sites claim that on his death bed he converted to Roman Catholicism.  According to the web site http://www.catholicism.org President Washington sent one of his slaves across the Potomac to bring back his friend Father Leonard Neal, S.J.  Jesuit Father Neal spent some time alone in his room.  When he returned to the Jesuit house, his fellow religious brothers asked him the outcome of his visit and he simply answered, “Everything has been taken care of.”  The entire story is related in the Jesuit annals.  The Negro slaves, who had been imbued with Baptist and anti-Catholic bigotry, passed on the story that “Master George had been seduced by the scarlet woman of Rome.”  Our first President had always kept a beautiful picture of Our Lady in His living room; he adopted the Catholic practice of blessing himself before meals; he was the largest contributor, giving more than even Bishop Carroll, to the building of St. Augustine’s church in Philadelphia; he very often attended Mass; and he often told his troops that if they did not refrain from abusing the Holy Name of Jesus they would surely lose the war.

In part 6, I will deal with Albert Pike’s vision of three world wars that would be required to wear out the nations of the world and that they would, out of exhaustion and debt from war, surrender and submit to the New World Order.

I know that most of this material on “All Roads Lead to Rome” will be new to the reader but it is documented history, it is an ongoing testimony that Rome never changes.  They were determined to crush the Reformation and restore the temporal power the Catholic Church lost as a result of that little chubby monk Martin Luther, and how he discovered in the Greek text that we are all “justified by faith.”  Remember this event that set off the One-World-Order.  Its not really a new New-World-Order, but rather the Old-World-Order repackaged.  Ironically, I visited the historical site in 1958 near Hanau, Germany where the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad was held.  I had an Army buddy that had been a librarian at the Library of Congress before being drafted into the military, but originally from my hometown in Pittsburgh, PA.  He was Catholic, and had also been a history major in college and graduate school.  We would go castle and medieval church touring on the weekends when we were not on duty and I was the designated driver since I was not a consumer of alcoholic beverages.  He paid for lunch and I did the driving.  We were stationed at Giessen, Germany, 70 miles north of Hanau.  Castle touring was a fun event for off-duty GI’s.  We drove one fall Saturday morning down to the old castle ruins where the 1782 Congress of Wilhemsbad was originally convened by the founder Adam Weishaupt and other Masonic leaders.  The castle was the summer home of Wilhelm, the heir to Hesse-Kassel, a district close to the city of Hanau, Germany.  It was decades later before I realized how important this site played in the Illuminati’s plan for a One-World-Government.

Because the House of Rothschild has been the ‘Fiduciary’ agent of the Vatican for two centuries, I thought readers might be interested in ‘The Rothschild Manifesto’ of circa 1840.

1.  LAW is FORCE in disguise, USE LAW. (Statutory Law, codes, regulations).
2.  Political freedom is an IDEA, not a FACT and is merely an illusion and distraction.
3.  USE “LIBERALISM” to obtain control via “GRADUALISM” through “EDUCATION”.  (Think of outcome based  education that has been used for more than twenty years, and then “Common Core” today to dumb down America’s students.)
4.  GOVERNMENTS are to be destroyed by either EXTERNAL (War) or INTERNAL (Liberalism and corruption) means.
5.  We must get CONTROL over all Government economies by controlling the MONEY supply.  (Central banking, Federal Reserve System).
6.  The END always justifies the MEANS.  “ALWAYS”!
7.  FORCE & MIGHT = RIGHT, there are no absolute moral or ethical codes.  (No Biblical Law).
8.  We have the RIGHT to RECONSTRUCT ALL EXISTING INSTITUTIONS.
9.  WE will become SUPREME LORDS over all people.
10.  The power of MONEY must remain hidden and SECRET until we are in such a position of POWER that no one can stop our plan.  (Fractional reserve banking and debt based paper currency.)
11.  We must use ALCOHOL, DRUGS, SEX, PORNOGRAPHY, GAMBLING, ALL VICES and MORAL CORRUPTION to destroy the YOUTH OF ALL NATIONS.
12.  We have the RIGHT TO SEIZE ANY AND ALL PROPERTY, by whatever means necessary, to bring all PEOPLE UNDER OUR CONTROL.  (Merger of Admiralty/Maritime Law and Equity Law, abolishing the Common Law, corruption and registration of title / Property taxes.)
13.  We will use the terms “LIBERTY, EQUALITY, and FRATERNITY” which will establish a “NEW ARISTOCRACY”.  (French Revolution). (“Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity” is the Masonic motto.)
14.  The qualifications for this “ARISTOCRACY” will be WEALTH, which we will CONTROL.
15.  WARS WILL BE INSTIGATED, FINANCED and DIRECTED so that we control BOTH SIDES, placing all parties FURTHER INTO OUR DEBT.  (Think of all wars from the Revolutionary War through to today and the coming World War III).
16.  Candidates for PUBLIC OFFICE will be selected, educated, and groomed, servile and obedient.
17.  WE WILL CONTROL ALL MAJOR OUTLETS OF MEDIA and INFORMATION.
18.  Engineered FINANCIAL PANICS and CONTROLLED DEPRESSIONS will bring about our “NEW WORLD ORDER”.

Meyer Amschel Rothschild also stated in the late 18th Century: “GIVE ME CONTROL OF A NATION’S CURRENCY, AND I CARE NOT WHO MAKES THE LAWS.”

While all of this may seem rather hopeless, I merely remind you that we do have hope; It comes in the form of “The Blessed Hope” of our coming Lord Christ Jesus.  It is only hopeless for those that have rejected the Gospel message.  Unfortunately, the Low Information folks will either choose to dismiss the truth of God’s Word, backed up by history of Satan’s plan that will subject everyone alive to receive the “Mark” of the Beast.

God told us history in advance [prophecy is nothing more than history foretold] of what would come to pass, for the purpose of our believing in Him and to receive His Redemptive Plan by Faith through Grace.  Think about this you “Pre-Wrath-Rapture-Babble” folks, if God was going to force the last days Church to go through the Seven Year Tribulation, why would He have even bothered to have His prophets and the Apostles, and Paul of Tarsus go to such length, depth and detail writing about the end of days, if it was not to warn us, the final generation, to be “In Christ”.

The entire Bible is a Parable and a Theme about Deliverance of those willing to trust Him by Faith – 100.1%.  The Theme is “Deliverance before Judgment”.

August 16, 2014 Hezbollah and ISIS battling each other

leave a comment »

It is interesting to note how God puts one enemy of Israel against another enemy. What branch of Islam will succeed in fulfilling the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39 prophecies? Will these factions unity at one point to attack Israel and fulfill those prophecies?

Time will tell, but at the present it is a fight to determine whose ideology will control the middle east. God is in control let us remember that.

Hezbollah leader Nasrallah sees Islamic State as growing ‘monster’

Nasrallah says his organization is ready to fight threat that also faces Gulf states, Jordan.

BEIRUT- The Hezbollah leader described the radical Islamist movement that has seized large areas of Iraq and Syria as a growing “monster” that could threaten Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other Gulf states, according to an interview printed on Friday.

In a separate speech, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Islamic State also posed an existential threat to his own nation, Lebanon, the target of an incursion by Islamist insurgents from Syria this month. He said his heavily armed Shi’ite Muslim group was ready to fight the threat in Lebanon – if required.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah has been helping Syrian President Bashar Assad fight a Sunni Islamist-dominated insurgency that spilled into the Lebanese border town of Arsal on Aug. 2, triggering five days of battles between the Lebanese army and militants including members of Islamic State.

“Here we live, and – if the battle is imposed on us – here we fight and here we will be martyred,” said Nasrallah. Hezbollah said it stayed out of the Arsal battle, wary of inflaming sectarian tensions with Lebanese Sunnis, many of whom have supported the uprising against Assad.

Nasrallah was speaking on the eighth anniversary of the conclusion of Hezbollah’s one-month war with Israel.

Addressing the wider threat to the region from Islamic State, Nasrallah said it could easily recruit in other Arab states where its hardline ideology exists. Even Turkey, the passage for many foreign fighters into Syria, should beware.

“Wherever there are followers of the ideology there is ground for (Islamic State), and this exists in Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, in Kuwait and the Gulf states,” Nasrallah said in the interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar.

Nasrallah, whose group is backed by Shi’ite power Iran, said Islamic State was encountering resistance in some parts of Iraq and Syria. But “it appears that the capabilities, numbers and capacities available to (Islamic State) are vast and large. This is what is worrying everyone, and everyone should be worried.”

Saudi Arabia, a Sunni Muslim monarchy that has been in a state of cold war with Shi’ite Iran and its allies, has shown growing signs of alarm about the spread of Islamic State. Last month, it deployed 30,000 soldiers at its border with Iraq.

Saudi Arabia has also been a major sponsor of the anti-Assad uprising.

Hezbollah’s role in Syria has helped Assad beat back the rebellion against his rule in critical areas of the country including Damascus and a corridor of territory stretching north from the capital. But large parts of Syria’s less densely populated north and east have fallen to Islamic State.

“A REAL DANGER”

“This danger does not recognize Shi’ites, Sunnis, Muslims, Christians or Druze or Yazidis or Arabs or Kurds. This monster is growing and getting bigger,” said Nasrallah.

Nasrallah reiterated his defense of Hezbollah’s role in the Syrian conflict, the focus of criticism from Lebanese opponents who say the group has provoked Sunni militant attacks in Lebanon.

Most recently, insurgents including members of Islamic State seized the town of Arsal at the Syrian border, battling the Lebanese army for five days before withdrawing with 19 soldiers and 17 policemen as captives.

Nasrallah said the insurgents would have advanced as far as the Lebanese coast were it not for Hezbollah’s role fighting them in areas of Syria just east of the Lebanese border.

“Going to fight in Syria was, in the first degree, to defend Lebanon, the resistance in Lebanon, and all Lebanese,” he said.

A Hezbollah commander was last month killed in Iraq near Mosul, a city seized by Islamic State in June, suggesting the group may also be helping pro-government forces there.

Hezbollah has not officially announced any role in Iraq.

Nasrallah linked the threat posed by Islamic State to the spread of Wahhabism, a puritanical school of Islam followed in Saudi Arabia that demands obedience to the ruler but which has been widely blamed for fueling Sunni radicalism.

“(Islamic State) does not have borders. There is a real danger and a real fear among many states and authorities, because one of the advantages of this organization is its capacity to recruit among followers of al-Qaida-Wahhabi thought,” he said.

July 26, 2014 The nuclear weapons countries of the world and their role in the end times

leave a comment »

In the study of Bible prophecy it is imperative to look at the nations of the world military capabilities to assess the possible role these nations will have in the end times. For example in determining who the Antichrist will be you would be very wrong if you said Fidel Castro of Cuba, no matter how much you despise this man. He would not have a nations military capability to support his role.

In looking at the first two seals of the book of Revelation we can see two men, one riding a white horse and the other riding a red horse. The first is a skilled archer and he holds a bow in his hand the second is good in personal close encounter combat and it is given a sword.

The first rider is given the command to go out and conquer militarily as the bow implies and the second is given the order to take away the peace of the world. I identify these men as the leader of the USA (white horse) and the leader of Russia.

From the text it is implied that these two are responsible for the deaths of 1/4 of the population of the world or approximately 1,782,000,000 people. This number is gigantic and hard to understand. In the war raging beteen Hamas and Israel at this time the number of casualties do not reach the 1,000 killed.

It is quite evident that to kill 1/4 of the world, weapons of mass destruction must be utilized and nuclear weapons would be the first choice. I have a hard time placing the prophecies of the bible listed in other books like Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 49, Ezekiel 29 and all the others falling before the time of the book of Revelation. and within the context of the first two seals. Who is the red horse rider doing war against? Where is Islam in the book of Revelation? If Islam is gone who is left.

These questions must be answered as all end times prophecies must follow a logical outcome and all must be considered in the relationship of one to the other.

I am including here a link to the nuclear power nations of the world. You can also find info on their armies and economies that form an essential part of modern day war making abilities, again think of Fidel Castro’s example.

Nuclear forces

At the start of 2014 nine states—the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea—possessed approximately 4000 operational nuclear weapons. If all nuclear warheads are counted, these states together possessed a total of approximately 16 300 nuclear weapons (see table below) compared to 17270 in early 2013.Read the full press release.

Overall inventories are declining, primarily due to the United States and Russia continuing the drawdown of their nuclear arsenals as a result of the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms (New START) and unilateral reductions. But the pace of reductions appears to be slowing compared with a decade ago. At the same time, all the nuclear-armed states are modernizing their remaining nuclear forces and appear determined to retain sizeable nuclear arsenals for the foreseeable future.

The USA and Russia continue to reduce their arsenals but at a slower pace than a decade ago and have extensive modernization programs underway for their remaining nuclear delivery systems, warheads, and production facilities. The nuclear arsenals of the other smaller nuclear-armed states are considerably smaller, but all are either developing or deploying new weapons or have announced their intention to do so.

Reliable information on the status of the nuclear arsenals and capabilities of the nuclear-armed states varies considerably. The USA has disclosed substantial information about its stockpile and forces, and the UK and France have also declared some information. Russia refuses to disclose the detailed breakdown of its forces counted under the New START treaty (even though it shares the information with the USA), and the US Government has stopped releasing detailed information about Russian and Chinese nuclear forces.

China, India and Pakistan are the only nuclear weapon states that are expanding their nuclear arsenals, while Israel appears to be waiting to see how the situation in Iran develops. There is an emerging consensus in the expert community that North Korea has produced a small number of nuclear weapons, as distinct from rudimentary nuclear explosive devices.

June 20, 2014 The Destruction of Elam in Western Iran a Prophecy of Jeremiah 49

We hear a lot about Iran in the news today specially since the conflict in Iraq has become front page with the ISIS terrorist controlling vast territories and now gasoline refineries.

Hardly a day goes by that the Ayatollah head of Iran doesn’t make a threat. Without making these threats the Revolutionary Guards and the proxy terrorist bands that they support are always involved in fighting or terrorizing some part of the middle east. As Bill Salus   explains God is angry with Iran and having foreknowledge of the future he prophesied against Elam a Western part of Iran.

Gary Stearman and Bill go into the Psalm83, the Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 48 and others relating to that area and the time at present. Bill seems to divide all of these and assume they may be happening independently of each other and possible in the very near future even tomorrow.

Personally I see the prophecies found at the beginning of the book of Revelation the four horses of the Apocalypse as encompassing all of these. the killing of 1/4 of humanity is a clincher for me. It also stands to logic that destruction on the scale in those prophecies can not be contained to specific areas and would probably involve the whole world.

June 11, 2014 Are the globalist provoking world war III?

This blog was started with the purpose of explaining the conditions of the world through the eyes of the prophecies in the Bible concerning the Apocalypse and the Rapture and many other things pertaining to eschatology.

The article included here is a secular political article with no religious angle except in the conclusion the author is trying to reach.

It is an astute historical comparison that concludes the USA and Europe of creating the climate to provoke a world war III to take over the world.

It is important to say that the first thing that happens in the seven years Tribulations is Jesus opening the first seal of the book that unleashes the white horse. Its rider is given a crown and a bow and told to go and conquer.

What a fitting picture of the Antichrist riding a white horse with the power to go as a conqueror using the bow or armies of the most advanced and militarily powerful nation in the world and followed by the red horse given a sword and representing the adversary of the white horse. Can we see the USA and Russia in these two symbolic pictures.

We are very close to this event taking place in heaven giving the go ahead for the start of the final battle for the souls of men and women.

Is the US ready to trigger war in Asia?

Andre Vltchek is a novelist, filmmaker and investigative journalist. He has covered wars and conflicts in dozens of countries.

The anti-Chinese and anti-Russian propaganda howl is reaching a deafening crescendo, especially in Asia.

Western media outlets are in high gear, spreading propaganda through their own outlets and their local media affiliates in the client states, mostly owned by big business. China and Russia are now vilified, openly insulted, and blamed for the escalation of tension in the Asia-Pacific region, and for the military build up. The entire mighty Western propaganda machine is now at work, demonizing China, Russia and other independent countries.

Politicians are parading, one after another, in front of television cameras, pledging allegiance to capitalism, the Western-style regime or simply put, to the Empire. All these derogatory and inflammatory speeches against their ‘enemies’ are embarrassing, but they are becoming the norm.

Many are warning that this can lead to a world war, that the West has lost all restraint and is ready to bathe the planet in blood, once again. A quarter of century ago it appeared that with the destruction of the Eastern block and with China then increasingly on a capitalist course, the West had finally got what it had fought for centuries for – the total and absolute control of the planet.

But something went “wrong” for the West. Latin America rose and most of it gained freedom, then spat on the Monroe Doctrine. China began pushing for socialist reforms in medical care, education, culture and many other spheres. And Russia refused to get bullied and humiliated, reminding both Europe and North America that it will not be stepped on as happened in the era of Gorbachev and Yeltsin.

The dream of unopposed rule over the world is beginning to disappear into thin air. Is the West going to risk the destruction of our planet simply because it cannot own it?

Whose order?

“Stephen Harper attacks Vladimir Putin and ‘evil’ communism,” reported Canada’s CBC News on 31 May 2014, in reference to the “lengthy keynote speech” at a fundraising event that the right-wing Canadian PM gave in Toronto. The speech was spiced with “language reminiscent of the height of the Cold War.”

Grotesquely, the President of the most aggressive country on Earth, the United States, Barack Obama, was promising to ‘curb the aggression’ of Russia and China, two countries that have not invaded anywhere in the last few decades.

In a speech clearly aimed at provoking China, the US Defense secretary Chuck Hagel, spoke more like a thug than a politician: “The United States will not look the other way when fundamental principles of the international order are being challenged.”

“Which order?” Some would ask. Was he talking about the order that is being imposed on the world from Washington and European capitals and has been for centuries, at the cost of hundreds of millions of human lives? Quite an order!

Christopher Black, a leading international criminal lawyer based in Toronto, provided an analysis for this report:

“The speech made by President Obama at West Point, that the fulcrum of American policy will be to curb the “aggression” of Russia and China immediately followed by his Defense Secretary Hagel in Singapore accusing China of destabilization in the South China Sea, rightly characterized by Lt. General Wang Guanzhong as “threats and intimidation”, expresses the clear intent of the United States to wage war in all its aspects against the two most powerful nations that dare to develop independently of American domination.

The United States has attacked China several times since World War II, first in the Korean War, followed by decades of attempted sabotage and isolation and then by the NATO bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade in 1999. It now has continued that pressure by trying to destabilize China internally through various mechanisms of infiltration of “human rights” groups into Chinese society and within China’s military and administrative mechanisms and a constant propaganda campaign to defame China and its people around the world. The momentum of this strategy has been stepped up with the recent attacks by fanatical Muslim groups from western China against Chinese civilians in key cities and transportation hubs and use of provocateurs to attack Chinese interests in Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and Africa and the recent absurd charges against Chinese military officers for cyber attacks.

The recent events in Ukraine show that the pace of this aggression is accelerating as America attempts to complete the encirclement of Russia and China by advancing NATO to Russia’s borders and by repositioning of 60 per cent of US military assets to the Pacific.”

But now the true aggressors are blaming the victims for “aggression”. And it is nothing new under the sun. Nazi Germany and its propagandists employed the same “logic”’ and arguments, before and during WWII. And the French used it in Algiers and their other colonies.

Local servility

In Asia, on a local level, the servile press in countries like the Philippines is taking orders and often surpasses its handlers in the West by its zeal.

On May 25th 2014, The Philippine Star began with lashing out at China, continued by quoting the words of Admiral William Locklear III, the commander of US Pacific forces, that “Russia has its own ‘pivot’ in Asia”. Then the newspaper finally produced a few pieces of “brilliant”’ analyses: “Official sources said Russia’s incursion into Ukraine has raised concern in Washington that China may try something similar in staking its territorial claims, in the guise of protecting its citizens overseas.”

‘Russian incursion into Ukraine?’ That sounds more like propaganda shouting from the pages of the North American or European daily press. In some 15 years of work in the region, after interacting with hundreds of media people from all over Southeast Asia, I have to testify that such a thought as quoted above, could never have come from a local journalist. Here, knowledge about Eastern Europe is very near absolute zero. Someone else wrote it.

Most of the local Philippine press generally concluded that the US has basically no choice but to expand militarily, because of “China’s aggressive moves.”Almost all the newspapers mentioned the high cost of the permanent US military bases in the region, also arguing that “spokes”’, bases belonging to local countries but wide open for use by US forces, are the real way forward. Such bases would also be located on Australian and Japanese territory, and possibly in Singapore and Thailand, as well as Malaysia.

The mainstream Philippine media is not even bothering to question such a military agreement, which is in direct violation of the nation’s Constitution.

Eduardo Tadem, Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Philippines, explained, during our recent conversation in Manila:

“The recently signed agreement between the Philippines and the United States is called EDCA (Economic Defense Cooperation Agreement). In this agreement the Philippine government offered virtually all the military bases in the Philippines total access for American soldiers, for a ten-year period. But who knows for how long, really… This is very dangerous, because all military installations of the country are now open for ‘entry’ of the US forces. And this certainly goes against the Philippine Constitution, which bars the establishment of foreign bases on our territory.”

Then what really happened? Why the sudden change?

“It has to do with certain factors,” Tadem explains. “One, of course, is the factor of the so-called ‘US pivot’ to Asia. Under Obama there is this strategy of ‘pivoting to Asia’. Second has to do with the so-called Trans-Pacific partnership proposal of the United States; to build some sort of integrated market in the Asia Pacific region. Except that the Philippines is not part of it for now… The third one has to do with the territorial disputes that are taking place in this region, both in the South China Sea and the North China Sea.”

China. Tadem continues:

“It is mainly an issue of nationalism. And it is also because here they were always asking for more assistance, including military assistance. And this is the way to get that assistance. Also remember that Philippine presidents were consistently supportive of the US. You probably saw the survey that shows that the Philippine people love the United States more than Americans love themselves. So for the Americans it is easy to get support for their China policy here.”

I asked both Teresa Tadem, Professor of Political Science at the University of Philippines, and Professor Eduard Tadem, how was it possible that a country, the Philippines, that suffered so severely during its occupation by the United States, during the colonial era, feels so positive towards its former brutal colonizer?

“It has to do with the extremely intensive American propaganda machine, which depicted the colonial era as a benevolent type of colonialism. Atrocities during the Philippine – American War of 1898–1901, which saw 1 million Philippine people killed, which was then almost one tenth of the population, were made to disappear from the consciousness of the people… the genocide, torture… The Philippines was known as the ‘first Vietnam’… all of this has been conveniently forgotten, hidden in the history books. And then of course the image of Hollywood that we are bombarded with…”

How dangerous is it to antagonize China and even Russia? For centuries, China had been a very peaceful country, and it still is to this day. Many Filipinos come from China; it is a natural, historical ally… While the West is liquidating, and bombing entire countries into the ground, overthrowing governments, China pulls one oil-rig into disputed waters, sprays a few boats with water cannon, and it is immediately defined as the aggressor.

“It is again all about propaganda. They depicted China as Communist and here they always attach a negative connotation to that word”, said Professor Teresa Tadem.

“For me the most dangerous country on Earth now is the United States”, continues Eduardo Tadem. “It has been the most aggressive… intervening in many countries all over the world, thousands of miles from its shores, trying to impose on the planet its vision of a global capitalist system. So, if you compare what China is doing in the vicinity of its territory, and compare it to what the US is doing in all parts of the world, on every continent… then you clearly see the disparity in the image that has been created, depicting China as a danger to peace in the world.”

Both professors then expressed deep concern over the fact that Western propaganda is igniting Sino-phobia in Filipinos and in other Asians. They pointed out that what the US is doing is actually fanning ultra-nationalism, which can easily mutate into fascism. This is, according to them, an extremely dangerous situation – planting seeds of Sino-phobia all over the continent.

“This can lead to a point of no return”, explains Eduardo Tadem. “I am afraid that this is what is happening now in the Philippines, as well as in other parts of Asia where territorial disputes are taking place.”

And it is clearly not only Sino-phobia that can lead to the destruction of the world, although partially Sino-phobia definitely is. Stirring hatred against Russia is also clearly on the menu of the Western masters of propaganda. Stephen Harper of Canada, Polish and Baltic politicians and their irrational anti-Russian speeches, are all leading to a frightening outcome: manufacturing racism against those nations that are standing in the way of US and European domination of the world.

Dehumanizing a potential enemy, unleashing racist and derogatory sentiments against him or her, is the first step in the Western ‘art’ of war, the first step towards a confrontation.

Speaking up

People are beginning to speak up. Geoffrey Gunn, a prominent Australian historian and Professor Emeritus at Nagasaki University in Japan, wrote to me, for this report:

“The international media big notes the “China threat,” yet who is the provocateur? We observe the Japanese Prime Minister in Singapore (May 30) offering to lead an international coalition to check Chinese aggression offering ‘quality’ Japanese naval vessels to obliging clients as with the Philippines and Vietnam. This is madness coming from a nation without official contrition, seeking as well to unpick its “god-save the peace constitution.” Meantime, the neo-con government in Australia overreaches with matching rhetoric, together snaring the US Defense Secretary to offer his own “pivot” to the South China Sea. My spin is to let Asian nationalisms (China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea) resolve their own problems diplomatically – after all the central kingdom has been in place for several millennium – outsiders keep out, militarists watch your step, and China rise peacefully.”

Are we being dragged into the final global confrontation, to a possible WWIII? Observed from Asia Pacific or from Ukraine, it clearly appears so.

Christopher Black has no doubts that provoking, antagonizing and insulting powerful independent countries like Russia and China may be the next step towards the destruction of our human race:

“All these actions are preparations for war. In fact, the positioning of American anti-ballistic missile batteries in Eastern Europe is in preparation for a nuclear first strike on Russia. Those batteries are deployed solely for the purpose of trying to intercept a retaliatory strike by Russian nuclear forces after a US first strike. They have no other purpose. These preparations for a war of aggression, in fact nuclear war, are a clear violation of the UN Charter and all international laws and can rightly be characterized as war crimes. But since the United States has contempt for all international laws and civilized standards of behavior we can expect these preparations to continue.

Mankind rests on the brink of annihilation for no other reason than the American pursuit of unlimited profit. They are the extremists of the capitalist system. We must hope that the skillful diplomacy we have seen employed by both Russia and China, the increased pace of their bilateral cooperation with each other and their increased steps to achieve multilateral cooperation throughout the world from Latin American to Africa and Europe and Asia will change the power dynamics of the world sufficiently to prevent the Americans and their allies from achieving their aims so that the peoples of the world can live in peace and devote their energies to solving mankind’s pressing problems.”

June 2, 2014 The Antichrist, The False Prophet, Daniel 9:24-27 answer to pastor Bob

Pastor Bob for the past weeks I have been following your posts on the correct interpretation of scripture, the gap of Daniel 9:24-27 and want to thank you for your teaching articles.

I find myself in agreement with your gap interpretation, the study of the Bible and all of your article so far. It would be almost impossible to agree with everything as my knowledge and experience is very much different to yours and I am not a pastor but an engineer that loves Jesus and His word. I have devoted many years to the study of the Word but never on a curriculum, seminar or church.

For almost 30 years I was led by Jesus to hear the radio program of John Mac Arthur of Grace to You Church and was instructed from his many programs in the whole Bible. In the subject of prophetic passages I heard many pastors, Hal Lindsey, Zola Levitt, Dwight Pentecost, JR Church, Gary Stearman. I also studied the Bible by reading it.

All this info is a preamble to say that your statement that Benjamin Netanyahu was a 33 rd degree mason was a big surprise and specially after having read about him today on fivedoves Gina Mc Cray and the many times I have seen him in videos. I went to Google and found his name several places, but I will search more.

There is one point in your article below that I think your conclusion is wrong and that is the role of Pope Francis which you attribute as the Antichrist. You are close but not correct in my opinion. He is the second Beast the False Prophet and the RCC will be the false religion that will engulf the world once the true believers in that church and all the other Christian churches that are run by pastors of the type you have encountered.

The role of the Antichrist is definitively a man of great power from a very powerful nation one who leads the world economically, militarily, Industrially, scientifically and many other ways and that is the role of the president of the USA Mr. Barack Hussein Obama. Francis will be the false spiritual leader(rightly called the False Prophet) that will force the world into believing that Obama is god and establish the 666.

In applying Bible prophecy to modern times we can not ignore the power structure of the world today in assigning these roles to individuals. The Pope has only the spiritual power as the leader of the RCC and nothing more.

I want you to consider the fact that you lump the RCC with Jehovah Witnesses, the Mormons and the Seventh Day Adventist. The last three are pseudo Christian cults that are very dangerous and deny one or more of the members of the Trinity. At the present time it is my opinion that the RCC is still a christian church with the majority of its members believing in the Trinity and worshiping Jesus Christ.

The biggest fault they have is the fact that the ecclesiastic members from the top down are instructed erroneously in eschatology. They are preterist and amillennial thus completely missing the events that are signaling the coming of the Apocalypse. The great majority of the catholic Christians are ignorant of the Bible and specially of prophecy. They have many other erroneous believes as well but so do many other Christian denominations. That is why the Rapture will take many who believe they are Christians by surprise as a thief in the night.

Again Pastor Bob I like what you have written in the articles so far and look forward to meeting you in the clouds at the Rapture.

Pastor Bob (1 June 2014)
“Standing in the Gap -8″


All:In my posts on this series I have provided both Biblical evidence and anecdotal evidence from history to show that we have ample evidence to support the belief in an existence of a “GAP” between week 69 and 70 of Daniel’s prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27.

I have taken to task mainly the teachings of SDA cult teacher Steven “Mark” Wohlberg because he embodies a group of folks from different spectrums of the Christian faith.  Wohlberg for some unkown reason has been a magnet of those critical of the Dispensationalist view of the Bible.  All of these groups have attempted to muddy the waters of Bible prophecy to destroy the message as well as the messengers.  Interestingly, they attempt to use a Bible translation that is seriously flawed, the Geneva Bible.  The Geneva Bible is touted as the Bible of the Pilgrims, when in fact, they had no other choice from which to read.  The marketing of it after it was resurrected about five years ago was this was the Bible the Pilgrims brought to America, inferring it was the best thing in Bibles since sliced bread.

The truth about the Geneva Bible is that the notes are deeply flawed, out of date, and in many cases totally incorrect.  But my focus here is the “Gap” understanding.  I’ll deal with the Geneva Bible in another post, but don’t waste your money if you feel compelled to get a copy, if for no other reason than the fact it is printed in 6-point Roman text.  6-point type is half the size of this post, which is in 12-point.  Read the free edition available on the Internet to review it for yourself.

All of this is a consequence of the method of interpretation of the Bible allegorically.  However, when taken to task the allegorical understanding of Scripture is like a house built on sand.

Wohlberg and his associates, and disciples do not equate the abomination of desolation with the events that Antiochus foisted upon the Jewish people in 168 BC.  You can search his writings and you can not and will not find any mention of it whatsoever.  I consider myself well trained in church history.

Jesus Christ raised the point, “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the Holy Place (let the reader understand),”  -(Matthew 24:15).  Jesus was obviously referring to Daniel, and specifically referenced Daniel 9:27.  When Matthew added, “Let the reader understand,” he was saying something cryptic, yet is only cryptic to us, if we do not possess knowledge of history prior to Jesus Christ.

Those of Jesus’ day would have no problem understanding what He referred to with those words.  The entire debacle of Antiochus was widely known by all for centuries.  You could not be Jewish and not know or without having heard about this event as you grew up.  The event refers to Antiochus having marched into the Holy of Holies, slaughtered a pig on the altar, sprinkled the blood around and demanded that the Jews worship him {Antiochus).  This is a matter of recorded history.

Yet, here is what Wohlberg says about the Daniel 9:27 passage, “The abomination of desolation is not a simple subject, yet we know that Jesus claarly applied this event to the time His followers were to flee from Jerusalem before the destruction of the second temple in 70 AD.  In a parallel text in Matthew 24:15, Jesus told His disciples, “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies (Roman armies led by prince Titus) then know that its desolation is near”.  The disciples did ‘see’ those very events because of the ‘abominations’ of the Pharisees, Jesus told them, see your house is left desolate’ thus Gabriel’s statement in Daniel 9:27 about Jerusalem becoming ‘desolate’ was perfectly fulfilled in 70 AD.”

So Wohlberg associates this  “abomination” with the Pharisees.  Does it sound like Wohlberg is guessing?  From Daniel 12:11, we know that the length of time for this abomination to last will be 1,290 days.  Steven Wohlberg  does not mention this fact.  He also does not mention that 1,290 days is just over three-and-a-half years, which places us jut past the end of the Tribulation by thirty days.

Wohlberg, SDA cultists, and even Preterists (those that believe all the key prophecies were fulfilled in the first century) of the church; along with “Covenant/Reformed” churches dismiss a future fulfillment of Bible prophecy concerning Daniel 9:24-27.  They reject the idea of Revelation 20, where we are told the Millennial Age will be 1,000 years.  We are provided six references to that effect.  And still the groups noted in this paragraph still call God a liar!  The references to 1,000 years does not say Christ will reign and rule for a long time, or an infinite length of time, or that it doesn’t mean what it says; it explictly states 1,000 years.  To argue that piece of Scripture is merely to say that God is lying.

However, with respect to the Matthew 24:15 passage, Dr, Arnold Fruchtenbaum states, “This passage is merely a reminder of the Daniel prophecy, with no explanation as to what the abomination of desolation is.  The only clue given is that it will be something standing when it occurs (like an image or idol), in the Holy Place.  This passage helps to verify the futuristic interpretation of the Daniel passage, for it was still considered unfulfilled and future at the time of Messiah.  The abomination of desolation will serve as a warning to the Jews of Israel to flee the land.”

Note this point and note it well:  In order to know if this abomination of desolation actually occurred during the 70 AD attack and destruction of Jerusalem, we need to ascertain whether Vespasian, Titus or anyone else for that matter, did what Antiochus Epiphanes did in 168 BC.  Interestingly enough, history books make no mention of any type of abomination of desolation during this period.  Not even Jewish literature so as much mention this as an abomination of desolation.  Even though the city of Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed in 70 AD, apparently, this abomination of desolation is yet to come, since we know it did not occur during the 70 AD attack.  So it would appear that the Temple is going to be rebuilt in Israel.  If so, there is an excellent chance that the abomination of desolation will also occur in the future.

A “third” Temple is as sure as the Lord’s return!  I have reported in previous posts the evidence that 60,000 tons of Bedford, Indiana limestone stones were ordered in 1967 for the “third” Temple.  This is not the Temple referred in Ezekiel 40-48, which will be the Lord’s Temple.  The “third” is to be of the Antichrist.  The story of the order for the stones appeared in an August 4th, 1967 issue of ‘Christianity Today’.  The particulars of this report has been detailed in a previous post on Five Doves.  I have subsequently learned that another pastor, a Presbyterian pastor in the Johnstown, PA saw the same railroad gondola cars containing the stones, clearly marked on the cars:  “Destination Kearney, NJ for Export to Israel” sitting in a rail yard in East Cambria yard at Johnstown, PA.  The presence of the cars with the loaded stones may have been due to mechanical problems or that the Kearney, NJ rail/ocean terminal could not receive the cars due to traffic congestion.  I lean towards the first because the cars used to carry the cut stones were older railcars, built in the 1940’s.  To move a commodity like cut stone rock, the railroads would never use their newest or best equipment.  After all, cut stones are unaffected by weather and can damage newer equipment when loading or unloading.  Nonetheless, it has become evident that others noticed the shipment as well.

With the visit of Pope Francis to Israel over the Memorial Day weekend, there were reported stories, as early as 2013, that Israel was going to give to the Vatican the Upper Room where Jesus observed Passover/Last Supper with His disciples.  The latest report was that the Pope only wanted the use of the location for two hours a day in the future by his delegation. The report that Netanyahu was going to give up this historic site was well publicized in August of 2013.  Bibi, is a 33rd degree Mason, and visited the pope this past winter.  It is becoming more and more probable that a “third” Temple will be built with the RCC/Vatican’s blessing behind it than if the Orthodox Jews attempted the task by themselves.  In reports concerning the pope’s visit to Israel, he has invited the leaders to come to Rome for a meeting of the minds.  I have in my hands a report, headlined:  Pope Makes Mideast Leaders a Peace Offer They Couldn’t Refuse.”  Reading the text and between the lines, the inference is the Pope himself will sign a covenant with Israel for “seven” years, or the last week of Daniel 9:24-27’s proverbial 70th Week!   It is my opinion that the “third” Temple will be erected as Jerusalem becomes a UN/Vatican international city.  The Palestinians are unlikely to protest such a move, given it would be under UN jurisdiction and the Vatican administering care.  Pope Benedict XVI orchestrated political and diplomatic measures to facilitate such a move.  All parties were in agreement to achieve a “win-win” outcome.  But that is simply window dressing for the Tribulation Temple events.

There appears to be a connection between the Daniel passage, the Matthew 24 passage, the Revelation 2 passage, the Revelation 11 passage, and what Paul refers to in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.  Paul is obviously pointing to a future, specific individual when he states the following:  “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called God or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in th Temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”   This passage is looking more and more like the Pope is the coming Antichrist [person].  Furthermore, the Greek meaning of “apostasy” can be translated to mean “departure” as well.  The inference is an allusion to the “Pre-Tribulation” Rapture.  Apostasy is understood to mean “falling away” but it can be equally understood to mean “departure” of the church.  Paul is stating that the Day of the Lord will not happen until:

***”The” apostasy occurs.
***”The man of sin is revealed.

Once this apostasy occurs, and the man of sin steps out onto the world’s stage, then the Day of the Lord is normally viewed as the entire period of judgment known as the Tribulation.  Who better than this humble smiling figure of Francis, the Jesuit.  He already has the world in his back pocket.  The last year of promotion has achieved the highest rating of any pope in recent history among Evangelical Protestants.    Paul seems to be indicating that there is going to be one specific man at some future point whom will literally sit in God’s Temple and declare himself to be God.  This is a reflection of a far greater level event than even what Antiochus Epiphanes did in 168 BC!

Wohlberg mentions none of this in his intepretation of the text.  This is because he believes the pope is the beast spoken of in the book of Revelation, and the “Mark” of the Beast is the changing of worship from Saturday to Sunday by the Roman church.

I agree with him, only so far as the RCC/Vatican but not for the same reasons.  I believe the RCC/Vatican is the “Beast/Antichrist” and the USA is the “Image” of the Beast, based upon the relationship between Rome and Washington, DC as far back as the early days of Bishop John Carroll and its [the RCC/Vatican] relationship with Freemasonry..  The “key” or link between the RCC/Vatican, Israel and the USA are the Jesuits.  I have some 50,000 pages of documents on Freemasonry, many of which corroborate my point of view.  I have held this view for now on 35 years.  For now, just recognize Rome sits atop a “knights” system which is noted below.  It is in descending order of subordination:

Jesuits
Pope/Vatican
Knights of Malta
Freemasonry
Knights of Columbus

The world’s intelligence agencies are accountable through the Knights of Malta.  These include:  MI6, BND, CIA, Mossad, ISS, FBI, GrU (old KGB), and others, all managed through the Council of Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group, Tri-Latel Commission.  Beneath this hierarchy follows the corporate, banking, military, academic, elites.

Getting back to Steven Wohlberg, I will deal with his last common statement made in his sermons, books, and writings.

+++Wohlberg believes the 70 weeks are applied to the Jewish people.

Quoting precisely Steven “Mark” Wohlberg’s statement, “Gabriel said that the 70-week prophecy applied to the Jewish people (see Daniel 9:24).  During the period of Christ’s public ministry of 3 and 1/2 years, the Master’s focus was largely upon “the lost sheep of the house of Israel”  -(Matthew 10:6).  After his resurrection and then for another 3 and 1/2 years, his disciples preached mostly to Jews (see Acts 1:6).  After  that second 3 and a half year period, in 34 AD, the bold Stephen (see Acts 7).  This infamous deed marked the then-ruling Jewish leaders’ final, official rejection of the Gospel of our Savior.  Then the Gospel went to the Gentiles.  In Acts 9, Saul became Paul, the “Apostle to the Gentiles” -(Romans 11:13)).  In Act 10, God gave Peter a vision revealing it was now time to preach to the Gentiles (See Acts 10:1-28).  Read Acts13:46.  Thus approximately 3-and-1/2 years after the crucifixion – and at the end of the 70 week prophecy given for the Jewish people – the Gospel shifted to the Gentiles exactly as predicted in Bible prophecy.”

The above paragraph is an exact quote from Steven “Mark” Wohlberg.  This is very appealing to the anti-Semite, of which Wohlberg is one; its taught by the SDA cult leaders.  Followers of Wohlberg theology swallow this ‘hook, line and sinker’.  These people believe God has completely done away with the Israel, having finally and completely replaced her with the church.  While Jews of course, can become Christians, they become part of the body of Christ, His Church.   God no longer has any plans for Israel as a nation, but only Israelites as individual people.

However, Wohlberg’s math needs to be checked to see if he is even close to understanding the length of the full 70 weeks.  On one hand after explaining how he arrives at the total number of weeks of years found in Daniel 9:24-27 (490 years), Wohlberg makes this statement: “After 69 weeks (after 483 years), “shall messiah be cut off” -(vs. 25)  All Christian scholars apply this to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.”

Unless I am misunderstanding him, Wohlberg states that after 69 weeks has been completed, the Messiah is killed.  If he states that, then his other calculations are off by at least 40 years.  In other words, if the end of the 69th week arrives, and then Jesus is killed, we need to know when the 70th week begins.  In fact, we need to know just when the 69th week actually ended.  Wohlberg does not say, as you can see from his quote above.

Other scholars have done their own calculations and figured out that if they start when the decree to rebuild the Temple from Artaxerxes (confirmed in Nehemiah 2:1-8), an event that occurred on March 14, 445 BC.  It thus becomes a simple matter of counting forward from then.  We get the figure of 173,880 days to the very day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the donkey foal on Palm Sunday of 32 AD.  This event then would be the fulfillment of the “sevens” in Daniel 9:24-27.

As we know, it was mere days later that Jesus was crucified.  Yet, Wahlberg is stating that the first 3-1/2 years of the final week of Daniel’s prophecy (the 70th week) is Jesus’ public ministry.  However, as you can begin to see, the 69th week ended with His Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem, where He presented Himself as King and was worshiped as such.  This infuriated the Pharisees.  How is it possible for Jesus to be cut off after the 69th week, and then turn around and count the 3-1/2 years prior to the crucifixion as the first 3-1/2 years of the final 70th week, which would come after week 69 of Daniel’s prophecy?  This is what Wohlberg does, yet this is the same person who tells us that everything in Scripture related to the time is consecutive or contiguous, and without stopping or starting.  He is going backwards and is never taken to task about this sleight of hand.

In spite of the obvious variance, Wohlberg places exact spaces of two 3-1/2 year periods; one during the public ministry of Jesus Christ and the second into the first part of the book of Acts.  The only way to do this is to fudge the time frames, or willing to take an approximation as being good enough.

However, if we have a real starting date for the time the first set of seven sevens began, is there really a need to fudge anything?  Moreover, if there is a “GAP” in the text of Daniel, would that not account for the fact that many today say we are not yet in the 70th week.

The context finishes out the meaning.  Gabriel is really saying that 70 sevens are decreed for his people, the Jews.  How do we know to what the sevens refers to.  From the context – the entire context is speaking about years.  Wohlberg goes through this interesting process of converting each week to days, then into years.  “Seventy weeks = 490 days.  A day in prophecy represents a year.  (See Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6).  Thus 490 days are really 490 years.”

In a previous remark I have noted that two Scriptural references do not connect to a hard rule about converting days-to-years.  This is what happens when people are prone to allegoricalizing the text.  There is no need to do what Wohlberg has done, if the context is understood correctly.  In some ways, it appears as though Gabriel was presenting Daniel with a bit of a play on words.  Daniel believes the 70 years of captivity were almost over.  Ezra and Nehemiah show that it did.  However, Gabriel emphasized that God was going to do a further work before sending the Messiah and completing His plan of restoration of the Jews.  The word “sevens” in the Hebrew is in the masculine plural, and though plural numbers are usually feminine.  Many scholars have concluded that this means the number is unusual.  Gabriel is saying, “No Daniel, not 70 years, but seventy sevens of years.

Verse 25 explains that these 70 sevens are going to be divided up.  The math is 70×7=490.  Since the context is dealing with yers, we know that it is 490 years.  The first section covers 7 sevens, or 49 years.  The second section covers 62 sevens or 434 years.  Combined you arrive at 483 yers.  This is one week shy of the complete fulfillment of the 70 years.

Please note verse 26.  It begins with the words, “Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing.”  What is Gabriel saying right there?  He is saying that after the second division of sevens (or the 62 weeks) is finished, then the Messiah will be cut off, which is another way of saying that He will be crucified.  The Messiah is said to have nothing.   When Jesus died, he died naked and all had deserted Him, for fear of their own lives.  The Father turned His own back on Him, as He poured out His wrath on Him, the wrath that should have been poured out on you and me.  Jesus, literally had nothing; not even His own grave, but one was provided for Him by someone else.

Notice the text then states, “and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary and its end will come with a flood.”  It is agreed this took place in 70 AD; some 40 years after Jesus died on the cross and is included in the Messiah being cut off time frame.  The end of verse 26 promises wars and desolations until the end.  The end of what?  The end just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Now, we see that vs. 26 begins with the words “And after the sevens” (then after this” -NASB).  This is the break in the succession of weeks), does not begin until we get to the text that states, “he will make a covenant with the many for one week.”  It should be obvious that because of what happens between the end of the 69th week and the beginning of the 70th week, a break does exist.  Between the first 7 weeks/49 years and the following 62 weeks/434 years, no break exists.  However, after the 69th week has ended, we are told that a number of things will occur, one of which is the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, which w know happened in 70 AD.  It should also be clear that the final week of Daniel’s prophecy does not begin until “he” makes a covenant with the many for one week.  It is in discovering just exactly what this covenant is, that we are able to detemine if it has already been, or if it is yet future.

Though Wohlberg refers to it, he ignores the 70 AD destruction of Jerusalem event in his calculations, preferring to instead to go backwards to include the public ministry of Jesus (roughly 3-1/2 years), the way the very first part of the book of Acts (roughly 3-1/2 years into it).  At the same time, he complains that there is said to be a break or gap in the timetable, which he does not see, and claims that no place else in Scripture is there ever a break or gap in prophecy.

First of all, Daniel 9:24-27 is the only place that references this particular prophecy so it is unfair to say that there cannot be a break here because there is never a break elsewhere (and I have already given evidence that would indicate otherwise).  I’ve noted at least 24 known breaks or “gaps” in the Bible.

Second, though he thinks it is utter foolishness for the break to exist, he has no qualms about jumping ahead to 70 AD, but not counting it in the last week (70th week)!

Therefore, on one hand, Wohlberg includes the 70 AD destruction as part of the prophecy but does not include the additional 40 or so years in his calculation.  This would take us well into the book of Acts.

Please note that beginning with vs. 27, a covenant is made.  Wohlberg points out that prophecy does not go out of order or stop and start again.  Yet, this is precisely what he does in his attempts to make the text say what he wants it to say.  Again, those interpreting allegorically force the text to say something that it does not say.  Those of you reading that other prophecy site, consistently push the heretic Wohlberg SDA position.  If we simply read the text as is, we will find that these things happen in consecutive order (something that Wohlberg and his disciples like) very much:

1. 7 weeks/49 years:  Jerusalem is rebuilt.
2. 62 weeks/434 years: Ends with the crucifixion of Jesus.
3. The people (of the prince) destroy Jerusalem/Temple in 70 AD.
4. Wars and desolations will continue to the end.
5. “he” will make a firm covenant with many.
6. “he” will break the covenant in the middle by creating an abomination.
7. “he” will be destroyed.

Everything noted above is sequential.  They occur one after the other, yet Wohlberg jumps around, first going to the end of the 69 weeks with Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, and then going backwards from that point to start the 70th week.  But that is not what the text states or implies.  It is a natural succession, with a break between the 69th week and the 70th week.

The individual who comes along to make a firm covenant with the many is not Jesus Christ as proclaimed at the other prophecy site. Jesus made no firm covenant with anyone, except the Father.  His covenant was written in blood, and because of that, salvation is available to all.  The text indicates that this individual who comes along will enter into a covenant with the many.  Jesus’ covenant is with the Father.  Christ Jesus has paid the full price of our sin.  If we receive His salvation, then we also benefit from that covenant.

The last part of vs. 27 states, and I quote from the NASB because it is the most current English translation that uses the Textus Receptus (Received Majority text).  “One who make desolate, even until a complete destruction, destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”  What this verse is saying is that “one” will come and make the Temple desolate.  He will continue until his own destruction.  How can this individual be Jesus Christ, yet it is the same individual that is in the beginning of vs. 27.

In spite of the word play on Wohlberg’s part, his argument simply do not stand up under scrutiny.  Wohlberg and his SDA cult fans and followers are severely lacking in the understanding of the Greek, for starters.

Understanding Daniel 9:24-27 is not at all that difficlut as long as a few basic rules of interpretation are followed consistently throughout.  The first is note the context.  The second is to avoid allegoricalizing, unless the text demands it.  Third, is to be consistent.  Fourth, is to allow the text to interpret itself.

Steven “Mark” Wohlberg’s opinions are that, not fact, which he unfortunately attempts to present as fact.  Wohlberg has done little to support his opinions, either from the Bible, or from history.  Unfortunately, there are others out there that pass themselves off as experts, at that other prophecy site.  The facts support a “Seven Year Tribulation”.

I equate Wohlberg’s math calculations as akin to Ma and Pa Kettle math or Abbott & Costello math.  Google both of them for a lot of laughs after this long post.

It is solely due to Wohlberg’s interpretation methods that he does not see the seven year Tribulation as the 70th Week.  So to him it is a myth.  That does not mean he is correct.  Far from it.  It merely means that because of the way he has interpreted Daniel 9:24-27, he comes away with no seven year Tribulation in his view.  Howwever, what if he is wrong?  If it is there and in his view clouded by arrogance, he is negating something that God has specifically placed in the Word?  This is one of the biggest problems with in presenting any type of Biblical teaching.  The issue is clouded by the lack of competency on the subject.

We are held to a higher standard, as teachers and preachers, by God.  I believe I understand Daniel 9:24-27 correctly.  I am also willing to say that I am wrong provided proof.  Given the events of the pope visiting Israel and offering a deal that no one can refuse, I think the weight of the evidence supports my position on Daniel 9:24-27.
One cannot help but notice that in spite of Wohlberg’s extremly loose interpretation methods, he believes with hesitation that he has proven things beyond any doubt.  Wohlberg has not presented any evidence from the Hebrew text, as to the nuances of the meanings, the use of the “definitive” article where it is missing in both the KJV Bible and the Geneva Bible as well.  The current-day Bible student hasn’t spoken that way {KJV & Geneva Bible) for at least 100 years if not longer.  The failure to include missing conjunctions, which are required by the Hebrew Masoretic text.  The problem most seem to ignore is the syntax of Hebrew culture translated to Elizabethian English to modern day English, which is not well defined or even understood but for grammar school teachers.  But by far the most arrogant abuse comes by the allegoricalizing of the text and failing to use the principles I noted previously.

I did not intend for this to be so long, however, this passage needs clarity because of how it has been abused by Steven “Mark” Wohlberg, the SDA cultists, and the blind leading the blind over at the other site.  The “HE” of Daniel 9:27 can be no one but the Adversary, the arch nemesis of the nation of Israel.

God bless, keep the faith, we are going home very soon.  If the events in Israel this weekend are any indicator of the progress towards the false peace, I look for the key parties (“the many”) to ink their signature to a false peace treaty that once it is signed, will enable us to identify two things:  1.  When the treaty is broken, and 2.  The date of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
