America Is End Times Babylon

O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain,
for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!

America is the greatest most blessed nation in all the earth. Where does America fit in the prophetic scheme of things? Is America mentioned in the Bible? Will it have a role to play in the end-times scenario? Many say that America is not mentioned in the Bible. I disagree and strongly believe that America has been prophesied about in the Bible and that it will play a major role in the end times. How could the greatest nation in the world, the only super power, not have a role to play? Of course, it will. America has been mentioned many times in scripture. The clearest mention is found in Revelation 18. This chapter describes the end-times Babylon and the judgment that it will receive. I believe America is the end-times Babylon talked about in this chapter. Let us examine this chapter to find out why I believe America is the end-times Babylon, and what will happen to her.

The main reason why I — along with many others — believe that America is the Babylon talked about in Revelation 18 is because of several verses that, when considered collectively, lead us to conclude that America is the only country that fulfills all of the parameters listed in the verses. Let us examine what the scriptures say about this modern day end-times Babylon and see how they undeniably point to America.

1. End-times Babylon is a great nation that receives judgment for its many sins.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Rev. 18:2)

2. This nation is a superpower and has world dominance and importance. It has also spread its corruption to the world.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. (Rev. 18:3)

3. The merchants of the world are made rich through trading with this nation. This nation consumes huge amounts of goods.

And the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Rev. 18:3)

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. (Rev. 18:11–13)

4. This nation is proud and arrogant and considers herself to be invincible and the greatest nation on earth.

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. (Rev. 18:7)

5. This nation is typified by an extravagant lifestyle.

And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! (Rev. 18:16)

6. Other nations are controlled by her and given great riches by her.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her. (Rev. 18:9)

7. This nation is a coastal nation, with deepwater ports and much international trade.

And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off. (Rev. 18:17)

8. This nation has defenses in the heavens.

Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord. (Jer. 51:53)

Which nation is the only one in the world that meets all those qualifications? America! We are the greatest country in the world. We are the only remaining super power. We dominate world politics and dictate much of what happens in other countries through whom and what we fund in those countries. We have the largest Gross National Product (GNP) in the world, far surpassing all other countries. We buy huge amounts of goods from other countries. In fact, the economy of many countries would collapse without our trade dollars. We are a proud and arrogant people and feel that we are invincible and that we are the greatest nation in the world. America, as a whole, lives in luxury compared to the rest of the world. America has many deepwater ports, and the vast majority of goods entering this country come by way of ship. And, yes, we now are the only country that has offensive and defensive weapons in space.[1],[2] The only country that meets all of the qualifications above is America.

Yes, America is described in Revelation 18 as the end-times Babylon. R.A. Coombes, in his book America the Babylon, sums it up like this:

So if not America, what nation will be the ‘mystery Babylon’ spoken of in Revelation, chapters 17 and 18? I submit that there is no other nation that could or will, and that therefore America must be the “super” nation mentioned in Revelation…..Empirical data suggests that it is America, not Rome, or London, nor some resurrected Iraqi empire, nor the United States of Europe. Textually, from the scriptures, there is overwhelming evidence that is ironclad in its data pointing only to the identity of ‘mystery Babylon’ as being that of the United States of America. Revelation chapters 17 and 18 give us 65 major identifying data points, which are identifying markers, that point out the identifying characteristics that point out the identity of this ‘Babylon’, and what its future will be.[3]

It is also interesting that, at this time in history, America, as a result of the Iraq war, has conquered and is in control of ancient Babylon. Even though Iraq has been officially handed over to the Iraqis, we are still in control, and many have deemed the government now in place as a puppet government. Ancient Babylon was a world power that encompassed the ancient “mystery” religions, hedonism, and materialism. America also embraces the ancient “mystery religions,” hedonism, and materialism, and in many ways is similar to ancient Babylon, and ironically, now controls the land it once occupied.

Some think that the end-times Babylon mentioned in Revelation 18 is Rome. They base their reasoning on Rev. 17:9: “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” Through the centuries, Rome has been called the city of seven hills; thus, they make the connection that end-times Babylon is Rome. But Rome does not meet the qualifications of the great nation that has control over the world during the end-times as outlined above. Here is what author Stewart Best said about this:

Rome is usually pointed at as being Babylon the city, if a literal city is even recognized. Rome, however, does not come close to being able to fulfill the parameters of God for the identification of the city, Babylon. It fails in almost all aspects. Because it does not meet the requirements of God, Rome cannot be the “great city” Babylon. This is not to say that Rome is not important in prophecy, for it is - it plays a major role and is part of the Babylonian system!

The argument goes that Rome is a city-state, and the Vatican is in reality a nation, which it is, but beyond that fact, it utterly fails all of the parameters for Babylon the Great. Babylon the Great is a large nation, with many cities. It has many huge warm water seaports, a huge military, a space program, etc. Rome does not fulfill any of these. Therefore, believe God and not man.
[4]

Here is what another author has to say about the Rome/Babylon connection:

Some Bible expositors make a big deal of the fact that Revelation 17 refers (verse 9) to the seven heads of the Beast as “seven hills”. (Rome was apparently built on seven hills.) A momentary allusion to Rome was appropriate at the time, but everything else in the same chapter makes it clear that even the hills are not literal hills, but rather “seven kings”. So there are circles within circles here (as there are is so many prophecies) that are easily missed if one becomes obsessed with only one aspect of a prophecy.[5]

So if one pays close attention to the language of Revelation 17 and 18, one can easily see that Rome does not meet the qualifications of end-times Babylon; nor does ancient Babylon itself, located in Iraq. Still not convinced that America is the end-times Babylon? Here are some verses that prove it conclusively.

Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert. Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues. (Jer. 50:12,13 — emphasis mine)

These verses in Jeremiah speak of the destruction that end-times Babylon will receive. It refers to end-times Babylon as having “a mother.” What country has a “mother?” America! Its “mother” is England. Consider the words of Author Stewart Best again:

This latter day Babylon has a mother, which is also a nation. This mother was responsible for “birthing” this mighty Babylon of the End Times. If Iraq is Babylon as some try to claim, who is the mother of Iraq? If you read this verse carefully, it says that the mother nation preceded Babylon, gave birth to her, watches her rise to full power, and watches her die in fire. Again, who is the mother of Iraq? Iraq has none.

Who is the mother of Rome, which is often presented as Babylon? Rome is not a nation, but a city. Further, she has no mother. Who is the mother of the EC, which is often presented as Babylon, the Revived Roman Empire? In point of fact, she will have no mother, and further, Babylon the Great is always shown as a single nation from her birth to her rise to full power and glory. The EC does not qualify. Each parameter must be fulfilled. You cannot pick and choose that which you wish to present to prove your case.

However, America has a mother. This mother was directly responsible for her birth. That mother preceded her. England has been around awhile. England gave birth to America, and England is still around, and England will watch America burn. England is further confirmed as the mother of Babylon the Great by Daniel the Prophet in Daniel 7:4 (the lion). Ezekiel also mentions it in Ezekiel 38/39 as “Tarshish”, who gives birth to “young cubs”. Tarshish is a cryptic reference to England and her young cubs are America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Daniel refers to her as a lion. The national symbol of England is a lion. The eagle wings on top the lion is America, her daughter. America’s national symbol is the eagle with outstretched wings.
[6]

America is the country with “a mother” and America meets the other scriptural qualifications. Thus, the clear scriptural interpretation is that America is the end-times Babylon.

More Indications
There are more indications that America is the end-times Babylon, as well. For example, at the gateway to our nation stands the Statue of Liberty. Free Masons in Paris gifted it to America in 1886. They commissioned fellow Mason Augusste Bertholdi, who was seeking a commission to create a robed statue of the goddess Isis, the Egyptian Queen of Heaven, holding a torch. Her connection to Babylon is easily seen in the next quote.

The Babylonian heritage of the “Statue of Liberty” should come as no real surprise to God’s people. Her identity is written in her shape. She stands on a base patterned after the Babylonian stepped-pyramids, or zigurrats, of old — which themselves were designed by the “tower” woman Semiramis and her architects. She stands literally on a base patterned after the tower of Babel! She wears a turreted crown, like Rhea, Cybele, Diana, and the pagan goddesses who were counterparts of Semiramis. She stands as a universal symbol of “liberty,” apart from the laws and commandments of God. She represents the “emanicpation” of mankind, and “immigration” and “unity” and the coming together of many races to become one universal mankind, all peoples coming together to one land, uniting the nations as “one,” with one language.

In her poem “The New Colossus,” Emma Lazarus calls the “Statue of Liberty” the “Mother of exiles.” But the truth is, she is the “Mother of harlots and abominations of the earth” (Rev. 17:5).
[7]

Arguments against America as Babylon
Even though the evidence points to America as being end-times Babylon, some reject this hypothesis, citing Rev. 17:6 and 18:24: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
They assert that America cannot be end-times Babylon because she has not participated in murdering Christians. I assert, however, that America is guilty of the murder of many Christians and Jews and will be guilty of even more in the near future.

We can assert that America already is and has slaughtered millions of innocent victims. The wholesale death of the American Indians by US forces from the 1700’s forward along with all of the aborted babies. Then of course we assert that the US leadership (Illuminati leaders) ordered fellow Illuminist, Adolf Hitler and his “illuminated” Nazi’s to kill the Jews and create the Holocaust of World War 2. In addition to that, US leaders ordered fellow Illuminist Joe Stalin to purge Russia of not just Jews but also millions of Christians during the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. But that’s not all, these same Illuminist leaders also ordered Illuminist Mao Tse-Tung and his Red Chinese army to slaughter up to as many as 70 million innocent men, women and children, of whom many were Chinese Christians.[8]

Mr. Coombes, in the referenced article, lists several supporting documents for his claims. I assert that, as the future leader of the New World Order, America will also be the one responsible for the martyrdom of Jews and Christians during the 70th Week of Daniel. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Senate has just passed legislation that paves the way for Christians to be arrested for hate crimes for preaching anything negative about any race, religion, sexual gender or “sexual orientation.”[9]

Not only is end-times Babylon talked about in Revelation 18, but is also talked about in Revelation 17 and other parts of scripture such as in Jeremiah 50–51 and several chapters in Isaiah as detailed by R.A. Coombes:

Babylon as a city and nation is perhaps the most mentioned gentile city/state/nation in the Bible. Only those cities in Israel, such as Jerusalem receive greater mention. There are approximately 359 direct references to the name Babylon in the Old Testament. Of these references, many are simply tied to historical accounts of events in past history. However, the 2 major prophets of the Old Testament, Isaiah and Jeremiah received from God information about a future Babylon yet to come. This future Babylon is separate and distinct from the Babylon of their day. The message of the prophets is that a latter-day Babylon would arise that would carry on the ‘spirit’ of the old Babylon. Hence, these two prophets present significant data concerning the identity of the future Babylon and its destiny. The prophets explain what will happen to this later Babylon along with data on who will be involved, where it will take place, when and how…along with why it takes place. These two prophets account for more than 80 direct references to this future city/state/nation. 64 of those are found in two chapters of Jeremiah. Those chapters are chapters 50 and 51. Isaiah accounts for two dozen more in chapters 13, 14, 18 and 47. These chapters provide a substantial insight into what happens to this latterday Babylon of the future.[10]

Jeremiah 50 and 51 is a large section of scripture concerning end-times Babylon that describe its destruction. I will not list them in full here, but I would encourage you to read them. Here are a few key verses from the text.

Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues. Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the Lord. Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the Lord: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her. Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land. (Jer. 50:13-16)

How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! How is Babylon become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the Lord. (Jer. 50:23,24)

Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him. (Jer. 50:31,32)

As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the Lord; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not shew mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses, every one put in array, like a man to the battle, against thee, O daughter of Babylon. (Jer. 50:40-42)

These verses paint a gloomy picture of the end-times Babylon and the destruction that it will receive. How do we know that Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51 are talking about the end-times Babylon? One of the main reasons is that ancient Babylon was not destroyed in the way described in the passages above. Consider again the words of Mr. Coombes.

The future-Babylon prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah have over the centuries been misunderstood and misapplied. Until recently, many commentators considered many of the prophecies to have already occurred. It does seem that some of the predicted results do apply to the ancient Babylon. Those results speak of Babylon becoming a desert, where desert animals live and no man resides there. In reality, ancient Babylon—the city, has been deserted for nearly a thousand years. It did not occur in the manner described in the future prophecies! Furthermore, the old national empire of Babylon has remained inhabited by man, yet the prophecies speak of no habitation for the nation/state as well as the city. Additionally, the events in question indicate that the demise of this Babylon will occur in … one…that’s 1…1 hour. Yes, that is 60 minutes of time…for complete annihilation of not just a city but also a city/state/nation. That never occurred for ancient Babylon. She just slowly dissolved into nothingness. Therefore, the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah are indeed still for the future.[11]

Here is one of the prophecies that show that ancient Babylon was not destroyed in this manner. “The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.” (Jer. 51:42) Was ancient Babylon covered with waves? Did the sea come up upon it? No! Ancient Babylon was not destroyed in that way. Thus, these scriptures have to be talking about the end-times Babylon. In Isaiah 18, we have further proof that the end-times Babylon is different from ancient Babylon: Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled! (Is 18:1,2)

Once again, notes Coombes:

Finally, we have Isaiah 18:2, where we find a reference to the future Babylon’s location as being beyond the land and rivers of Cush. This ‘rivers of Cush’ reference is relating to the Tigris and Euphrates rivers of Mesopotamia. Therefore, we find the verse trying to tell us that future Babylon is BEYOND the old Babylon by a great distance !!! The implication is that the future Babylon is nowhere close, geographically, and requires a long sea voyage to get there from anywhere in the then known world.[12]

If America is the end-times Babylon, which I am convinced that it is, then as you can see from these passages, America-Babylon is slated for destruction. America has lifted her fist in the face of God. Our sins have reached unto heaven. The murders, especially of babies, the sexual perversions, the child abuse, the pornography, the drug abuse, the witchcraft that this country is involved in, are deplorable. The worst sins are yet future, however, in which America will be instrumental in bringing about the New World Order and persecuting Jews and Christians. As a result, God’s judgment will come upon America swiftly and decisively.
America, as a whole, has shown God in recent years that it does not want Him. The nation has removed prayer from school, defamed the sanctity of marriage, and is removing the scriptures such as the Ten Commandments from being displayed publicly. America is shaking its fist in God’s face and saying “We do not want you!” Unfortunately, that is what we will get. God has begun and will continue to remove His blessings and hand of protection from our nation. 9/11 was just the start, and we can see from the language employed in Revelation 18 that America will eventually suffer a terrible destruction.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Rev. 18:2)

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” (Rev. 18:8)

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. (Rev. 18:10)

Two-Stage Destruction
I do not know exactly to the last detail how the destruction of America will play out, but I do see the destruction occurring in two stages. My study of the related biblical passages has led me to believe that the first part of the judgment will involve an attack coming from the North by an invading army. Scriptures in Jeremiah and Revelation tell us that the attack is likened to what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah and will involve a sudden destruction with fire and a destroying wind that will happen in one hour. The noise of the destruction will move the earth; and the shipmasters will not want to come near us for fear. I ask, for fear of what? What type of destruction is swift, involves smoke, wind, fire, burning, moves the earth, and will cause shipmasters to not want to come near? This is most likely referring to nuclear weapons being unleashed against America in an “all out” attack. Here is what Lt. Colonel Thomas E. Bearden, writing in his book, Fer De Lance, updated for 2002, said about the possibility and vulnerability of America burning:

If attacked, our ground forces will be as vulnerable as sitting ducks, out on the hot sandy desert with no place to hide. America’s cities and outmoded ABM systems will not protect us…we can expect to be attacked on all sides, with nuclear bombs, neutron bombs, EMPs, and the longitudinal electromagnetic interferometer waves that will come down upon us as fire from heaven. America will burn ...

I am sorry to say that whether you believe it or not, America as a nation is due to be judged in the 70th Week of Daniel by what looks to be an all-out nuclear attack. We will discuss the timing of this attack in the next chapter. After this first judgment, America will be totally decimated.

Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert. Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues. (Jer. 50:12-13)

Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation. As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the Lord; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. (Jer. 50:39,40)

These verses indicate that, as a result of the first attack, America will become uninhabitable and likened to a desert. The second and final judgment upon America will come near the end of the 70th Week as recorded in Revelation 16:

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” (Rev. 16:19-21)

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. (Rev. 18:21)

So we see that this second judgment will occur at the return of Christ at the end of the 70th Week and will result in America not being found any more. This final destruction will probably occur as a result of the horrendous earthquake that will shake the world, causing every island to disappear and every mountain to be leveled, and America will sink into the ocean and be covered over by the waves forever:

The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. (Jer. 51:42)

Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. (Rev. 18:21)

O America, I wish it were not true. Your sins have reached unto heaven and you will be smitten. The country that we love so dear, that was founded upon Christian principles and used to stand for righteousness, now promotes wickedness and will receive her just deserts. The scriptures will be fulfilled; America will be destroyed. If we repent — The only hope for America — I believe God would spare America just as He spared Nineveh when that city repented. The most grievous sin, abortion, needs to stop immediately! We also need to stop the pornography, the illicit sex, the flow of liquor, the drugs, the gambling, the witchcraft, and the flow of raw sewage coming out of the cesspool of Hollywood. America needs to stop its sin now! If we repent, maybe the Lord will have mercy upon us. But the scriptures tell us that America, like Sodom and Gomorrah, will not repent but will suffer the full blow of God’s wrath. God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. You will receive your just reward.

O beautiful for spacious skies
for amber waves of grain,
for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee and you refused His Grace and will be engulfed by sea to shining sea!

O America! O America! How I wish it were not true. I pray that many would be brought to repentance before it is too late.

This post is a chapter out of The Coming Epiphany entitled "O America!"

322, Health Care, and The Dollar Code

What does health care have to do with a date encoded on the dollar bill? In the article The Dollar Code I explained how the date 2/22/2010 was encoded on the dollar bill and the Great Seal. I speculated what would happen on that date and explained how the actual date may be 3/22/2010. Here is what I wrote.

Note: 2/22/2010 has come and gone and nothing major happened, so what now? First let me tell you about some interesting things that did happen on 2/22/2010; At 11:00 EST gold was at $1111/oz. At 1:11 PM EST the Dow was down 11.11. points, which was a drop of .11%. I believe that those occurrences were beyond chance and may have been a sign or signal of future events regarding the United States. Also on 2/22/2010 President Obama announced his new health care initiative which if passed will greatly increase government expenditures and taxes which could lead to the financial collapse of the United States...

What does all this mean? I am not sure but from my research I believe that we are very close to seeing monumental prophetic developments, one of which I believe will include large scale financial upheavals in the United States. I also believe that 2/22/2010 is a key date in this regards and that a major event(s) will be staged in relation to that date with 3/22/2010 being the most prominent date to watch for.
As we all know On 2/22/2010 Obama announced his health care bill. On 3/22/2010 (Universal time, UTC) the health care bill was passed and on 3/23/2010 Obama signed it. So one month past 2/22/2010 the bill passed and a month and a day after 2/22 the bill was signed.

So it seems that the encoded date on the dollar bill points to the health care bill. Will the health care bill lead to the destruction of the United States? It could, but before we discuss that let's consider what has been said about it. Pastor Lindsey Williams has been in contact with an Illuminati insider who said this about the health care bill; "The health care bill is not a health care bill...The health care bill is total government takeover, it includes gun confiscation, euthanasia, and biometric chipping."

If that is true then this bill could be a death blow to our nation and our freedoms. After the bill passed the victors in the house broke out into a loud chant of "Yes we can!" In case you do not know;"Yes we can" played backwards says "thank you satan."

Look what what Nancy Pelosi said about the bill.


Winding up the debate, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: “After a year of debate and hearing the calls of millions of Americans, we have come to this historic moment. Today we have the opportunity to complete the great unfinished business of our society and pass health insurance reform for all Americans that is a right and not a privilege.”
When I read her statement that included the phrase; "to complete the great unfinished business," I immediately thought of the unfinished pyramid on the back of the dollar bill and it's connection to the encoded dates of 2/22/2010 and 3/22/2010. I also remembered the purpose for which America was created--to usher in the new world order.


The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body–unseen and for the most part unknown–and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestle board setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.” – Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

In his “Secret Destiny of America”, M.P. Hall describes America’s mystic role in History, as seen by occult orders. He states that America has been given the divine role of bringing forth a new political, philosophical, economical and religious era, where the “Illuminated” stood at the helm of the world’s destiny.

Was the health care bill the last piece of legislation needed for the powers to be to eventually destroy the sovereignty of the United States and establish their new world order--complete the unfinished business? Or could it be even more sinister than that?


On Sunday March 21st as I watched C-Span I suddenly got a tingle up my spine. Were they purposely putting this off until the clock hits March 22nd Universal Standard Time? Is this thing being orchestrated so that it falls on 3-22, March 22nd, the Holy Day of some crazy secret society?(Skull and Bones) And a secret society that has built a monument (Georgia Guidestones), christened on 3-22 that announces their plans?
Then that would mean the 'Health Care Plan' is something far more sinister.

Happy March 22nd America. (Source Link)
To get the bill to pass Obama had to craft legislation to nullify the federal funding of abortion. Listen to what Planned Parent Hood had to say about this.


Planned Parenthood called the pro-abortion health care bill the House approved late Sunday night a victory and applauded the financial windfall it expected to reap as a result. The abortion business also dismissed the executive order President Barack Obama promised Congressman Bart Stupak as harmless.

'What the president’s executive order did not do is include the complete and total ban ... that Congressman Bart Stupak (D–MI) had insisted upon," Richards said. "So while we regret that this proposed Executive Order has given the imprimatur of the president to Senator Nelson’s language, it is critically important to note that it does not include the Stupak abortion ban."
If that is true then our taxes are going to fund abortions! Yet there is more;


New Health care laws will indeed set up death panels. This law crowns the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) as an untouchable regulatory authority wielding dictatorial powers. This law is the Worst Case Scenario for Americans who fall into one of the "Devalued" categories, Elderly, Terminally Ill, Vegetative State, or Insane, or Politically Incorrect. President Obama's Health Care Law gives rebirth to the Nazi Biomedical Vision - the bloody Nazi World is back! http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n2412.cfm
Remember, this is part of the Illuminati plan for America, designed to more tightly control citizens from cradle to grave. It is a very important component of the coming dictatorship.
Because the ultimate goal of ObamaCare is government control over all its citizens, not to compassionately deliver affordable health care to all. As we transition to a dictatorship, the government must control all its citizens at every point in their life and death. Government Control is the major objective of ObamaCare. Cutting Edge Newsletter 3/24/2010

What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected...the law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictlycontrolled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
In regards to 2/22/2010 and 3/22; personally I was expecting something more on the lines of a financial collapse. I still think that is coming and so do, according to a recent pole, about 79% of Americans. But it looks as if the dates pointed to the health care bill and I think that we will soon see the ramifications of this legislation and its ripple effects. Just the cost of this bill alone could send this country over the cliff of financial ruin. Michael Pollaro estimates the true cost of the bill to be 2.7 trillion! The health care bill may be the proverbial straw to break America's back. Just as the Dollar code foretold this may truly be the beginning of the end for America.

Thanks to New Wineskins I just found a symbolic link to 222, the signing of the healthcare bill, and the fate of America. Obama used 22 pens to sign his name on the bill. The pens were contained in 2 boxes--222. When he was finished signing he said "We are done!"


Ever try to sign your name with 22 pens? Not so easy. "I've got to use every pen so it's going to take a really long time," said Barack Obama at Tuesday's historic signing of the health care bill. "I didn't practice."

In a longtime tradition, the president put his signature to the bill using almost two dozen commemorative pens, which were handed out to key congressional leaders and others who helped pass the legislation. It took the lefty more than 90 seconds to pick up each of the 22 pens and make a small portion of each letter in his name -- and yeah, the signature probably looks a little weird. "We are done!" he announced with the final stroke.

The White House didn't release details about the custom-made pens -- complete with the presidential seal and signature -- but aides to one recipient confirmed (on super-secret background) that they were black and manufactured by Cross, an American company. Obama used similar rolling-ball pens on his first day in office. Washington Post
Thanks to Cindy by the Sea, interestingly enough the day Obama signed the bill is the 77th anniversary to the day of the enabling act which gave Hitler dictatorial powers.


It was the Enabling Act of March 23, 1933, which in a legal way conferred dictatorial powers on Adolf Hitler. Only 94 Social Democratic votes were cast against it. The date for its abrogation (see Article 5) was never kept. Indeed, the Enabling Act is the last measure which the Reichstag passed under the republican and democratic Constitution of the Republic. It spelled its end and the beginning of National Socialist dictatorship.
Something else of great symbolic nature happened on the day the bill was signed. A 22 ft tall statue of the god anubis had a meeting with lady liberty. As explained by parablesblog;

Anubis was the most important god of the Dead...Anubis was associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journey into the afterlife...In ancient depictions found in Egypt, the left hand of Anubis held the Ankh. This cross shaped item symbolized the key to life...I have noted in prior posts that President Obama is left handed. When he signed the Healthcare Reform Bill into law he used 22 black pens manufactured by Cross. This was an occult message that in signing this bill he held the keys to life and death in his hands. Congress passed this bill through a parliamentary process dubbed “the Slaughter Solution...” It was not coincidental that Anubis sailed past the Statue of Liberty on that day. This event had been planned and carefully choreographed. Announcements were made days earlier that Anubis would have a rendevous with Lady Liberty.
Is this the beginning of the end for America? The dollar bill and the Great Seal were encoded with the date 2/22/2010--the day Obama announced his health care bill. On 3/22/2010--another date linked to the dollar bill and the skull and bones death society--the bill passed. On 3/23/2010 the bill was signed with the symbolic link to 222, hitler's dictatorship, and anubis--the god of the dead--meeting with lady liberty. On analyzing the bill we find that it destroys the constitution and will cost trillions. So I believe the question; "What does health care have to do with a date encoded on the dollar bill?" was answered by the man himself "We are done!" .

The Dollar Code--222--322--health care--We are done! This may take years to play out but it looks like the Obamacare is an important part of the coming New World system.

One Way

heaven, god, jesus, salvation, way, resurrection, bible, prophecy, end times, revelation
In The God Proof I logically proved the existence of a beginning force that has revealed Himself to us as God and has given us a book, The Bible, to let us know what He requires of us. Many claim that there are many ways to reach God. Dr. Savage is one such famous advocate of that theory. I have heard him say that religions are like spokes in a wheel and they all lead to God at the hub. Even though this might sound nice it is absolutely wrong.

How do we know? First let's consider the magnitude of the situation. God is infinite, we are finite. How can a finite being determine how to reach an infinite being. For us finite humans to think that we can come to an infinite being on our own terms is pure arrogancy. It would be like an ant trying to tell us how they are going to relate to us. So for a human to think that they can come to God any way that they see fit is illogical and is the ultimate expression of pride and arrogancy.

So what is the way to God? The way to God is the way that He told us. He came to earth and told us how to reach Him and He recorded it for us in a book. The Lord Jesus Christ came to earth and proved He was God by His death, burial, and resurrection. He also told us how to reach God. He said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (Jn 14:6) It does not get any simpler than that, if you want to come to God you must go through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. All other ways are merely human inventions or satanic deceptions. A finite being must come to an infinite being on His terms.

The God Proof


 
 
UFOs and aliens claim that they started life on earth and in essence are saying that they are our creator. No doubt we will hear this more and more as the end draws near and the greatest deception of all mankind is unleashed upon the earth. And this deception will no doubt be heralded by the greatest deceiver of all time—the antichrist. How do we know that such claims are false and that there truly is a God who created us?

On the surface their claims seem very credible because after all they fly around in spaceships and can use telepathy, and have great intelligence, and are so much greater than us poor mortals (Did you catch the sarcasm?). So naturally we should believe whatever these UFO aliens tell us, right? Ha, Ha, not hardly.

Let’s reason this out. Where did they come from? Who made them? Some may say that they evolved just like us but they evolved to a higher degree. OK, even though evilution is a false theory for arguments sake I would say; where did the stuff come from for anything to evolve from? Some may say from the Big Bang. OK again for arguments sake I would say; where did the stuff come from to cause the Big Bang? Some may say well it was just always there. So I would say OK you admit the existence of something that was always there, thus if it was always there, then it had no beginning. Well that is exactly who God is; the beginning force, the one who had no beginning, the one who existed before all time and will always exist in the future—the beginning. God is the beginning.

In fact that is the first thing that God reveals to us about Himself in the Bible. In Gen 1:1 He says “In the beginning God…” The mere fact that we and the world around us exist demands that there had to be a beginning. The beginning force has revealed Himself to us as God the Father, God the Son—the Lord Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit. And the creator God loved us so much that he sent His Son the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins and He also left us with His Holy Word the Bible so that we can know the truth about Him and what He requires of us.

So who are the UFO aliens? They are none other than the fallen angels and their spawn. Their leader is the devil himself. Yes they have great knowledge, yes they can do extraordinary things, and yes they can fly around in spaceships. But they are not who they say that they are, they are nothing more than demons of the underworld trying to deceive as many people as they can to bring them into Hell. Even the smell of sulfur that they omit is a clear give away of their infernal nature. If you ever see one just rebuke them in the name and through the blood of Jesus” and watch them flee!

Oh by the way, I do believe in the Big Bang; God said it and BANG it happened!

I opened my Bible today for my daily devotions and it opened to Jeremiah 10, which not by coincidence, fits in nicely with the discussion above.

1Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them… 10But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. 11Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. 12He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. 13When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.

The Lunar and Solar Eclipses of 2014 & 2015

2015, 2014, solar, eclipse, lunar, bible, prophecy, end, times, revelation, israel, gentiles, jerusalem, israel, antichrist (Image from watch.org)

There is another event looming on the horizon that may have some significance to the end times. In 2014 and 2015 there will be 4 blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days.

1. Passover, April 15, 2014
2. Tabernacles October 8, 2014
3. Passover, April 4, 2015
4. Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

What is significant about this? A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; 1949/50, and 1967/68. During each of those tetrads of total eclipses Israel was at war.

Though Israel was declared an independent state sixty years ago in 1948, the war with its neighbors began after its first day and lasted for a year. Therefore, the first lunar eclipse of 1949 occurred during this war for the establishment of Israel. The next tetrad began on Passover 1967, which was just six weeks before the Six-Day-War. Therefore, these two significant wars of Israel were covered by each tetrad period.[1]

The next time there was a tetrad of eclipses on feast days was in 1493/4. In 1492 the Jews were kicked out of Spain. Is this upcoming tetrad a sign from God that something significant will occur in 2014/15 in regards to Israel? Will they be involved in another major war at that time, possibly even the end times war with the antichrist when Israel is surrounded by armies and has to flee into the wilderness?

And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. (Luke 21:20-21)

These are things to ponder and watch for. There is something else involving eclipses that is of significance around this time. There are five solar eclipses from 2008 to 2015 that align on significant dates.

1. Tamuz 29/Av 1: August 2, 2008 August 1, 2008 Total eclipse
2. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 21-22, 2009 July 22, 2009 Total eclipse
3. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 11-12, 2010 July 11, 2010 Total eclipse
4. Adar 29/Nisan 1 (Beginning of the religious calendar): March 20-21, 2015 Total eclipse
5. Rosh Hashanah: September 14, 2015 September 13, 2015 Partial eclipse

Jewish tradition believes that lunar eclipses signal judgment for Israel and solar eclipses signal judgment for the nations. Are the three solar eclipses on Av 1 in 2008-10 an indication that a time of distress is to begin for the world? Think of what happened after August 2008—the beginning of the financial collapse. Are the three solar eclipses a sign that the 70th week will begin between the first and last eclipse? Also note that in 2015 you have 2 lunar and 2 solar eclipses all on significant days.

You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth all in 2015.[2]

What do all these celestial occurrences mean? Are they signs for us from God? Yes, I believe they are a definite sign that the end times are approaching.

Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel Prophecy

 
 
I ran across an interesting prophecy that I will be adding to my book. The prophecy, as you will see dovetails perfectly with the hypthesis that I present in Chapter 12 of The Coming Epiphany;

Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel Prophecy The following is the write up of a prophecy made by Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel that I believe is significant in regards to answering the question when, and may point to a possible year of the Second Coming. The original article appeared in Israel Today, March 2008[6]
 
In 1217 the Jewish Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. A Jubilee is a period of 50 years according to Leviticus 25:8-13. Eight Jubilees would then be 400 years. Sure enough, 300 years later in 1517 the Ottoman Turks seized control of the city of Jerusalem and ruled over it for the next 400 years. They were finally driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby. The Rabbi's prophecy about the 400 years was fulfilled exactly to the year.

The Rabbi had also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a "no-man's land." This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the holy land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally "belonged" to no nation. Even after Israel's war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called "no-man's land" by both the Israelis and the Jordanians. Anyone even stepping into that strip would be shot down. I lived during that period of time and well remember the reports in the newspapers and shown on TV about the division of Jerusalem. It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire west bank of the holy land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the Rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.

But that is still not the end of the matter. The Rabbi also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin. The 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017.[7]
 
Let's consider the data;
Jubilees 1-8 (1517 to 1917): Turks will rule.
Jubilee 9 (1917 to 1967): Jerusalem a “no man’s land.”
Jubilee 10 (1967 to 2017): Jerusalem under Jewish control, Messianic end times will begin.
Jubilee 11: Begins at Yom Kippur 9/30/17.

Jubilees 1-8 and 9 were fulfilled as his prophecy stated. His prophecy also states “during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic "end times" would begin.” Therefore if the prophecy is to be trusted, then the Messianic “end times” would have to start within the time of the 10th jubilee, before the 11th Jubilee starts at Yom Kippur on 9/30/17. Thus if the Messianic “end times” refers to the beginning of the 70th Week, then the prophecy implies the Second Coming will be no later than 2024. If the Messianic “end times” refers to Jacob’s trouble—the second half of the 70th Week—then the prophecy implies the Second Coming will be no later than 2021.

End Times Synopsis

armageddon, bible, prophecy, end, end times, seal, trumpet, bowl, vial, rapture, revelation, comet, volcano, antichrist, abomination, desolation, famine, ufo, demon, sun, earthquake, hail, tsunami, blood, moon
What does the Bible—the only sure source of prophecy—say about the end times? This is something everyone should know; yet many have a serious lack of understanding in this area. In order to help others understand what will eventually, and maybe sooner than you think, transpire on the earth I have put together a synopsis of the major prophetic events listed in scripture.

Before I present the synopsis let me tell you the criteria by which I arrived at this synopsis. The following is an excerpt from The Coming Epiphany regarding this.


There are many books on the market that deal with biblical prophecy. Why is this book different? Why listen to me? Who am I to say what is right or wrong? Should you listen to me because I have been involved in preaching and teaching God’s Word on a daily basis for the last 20 years, or because I have memorized and meditated on scripture every day for the last 23 years, or because I have a Master of Divinity degree from a conservative fundamental Christian university, or because I have fasted and prayed over this book? No, even though credentials have their place, you should not listen to anyone because they have “credentials.” You should only listen to me or any Bible teacher or preacher because what they say agrees with the Word of God. We all have the responsibility before God to go to the scriptures ourselves and see if what we are being taught agrees with all of scripture just like the Bereans did. “These [Bereans] were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Scripture and scripture alone is the standard by which everything must be judged. Unfortunately, many approach end-times scriptures with a predetermined theological mindset and then try to make scripture fit into their theology. What sets this book apart from all the rest is that it attempts to approach the topic with all of scripture, and scripture alone, as its basis. A theological belief is then formed on the basis of what all of the scriptures dictate.

In this book scripture will be interpreted according to the following principle: “When the plain sense of scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise.”
[1] In other words, scripture will be interpreted literally unless it is evident that a symbolic interpretation is warranted by the text. Theological systems will then be evaluated in light of what the Bible says and not the other way around, as many books on this topic do.

Many end-times books also are based solely or partly on various extra-biblical ancient and modern-day prophecies. It is apparent that many of these prophecies are man-made or even demonic in origin, and even though they may contain some truth, they do not contain all truth and thus cannot be trusted. The only sure foundation that we have for faith and doctrine is the Word of God. When this book uses extra-biblical sources, it is only to support a point that has already been made from the scriptures.

In this book, I will endeavor to present what the whole of scripture says with regard to prophetic events and not necessarily what any theological system dictates. I ask that you would prayerfully compare what I present with scripture. If I have been accurate in presenting the truth of God’s Word—and these pages represent the truth of what is to come—then all of scripture will agree with what I am stating. And in all of your prophetic study, whether through this book or any other, let me remind you of one of God’s wonderful promises: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering” (James 1:5–6). I pray that this book will be a blessing to you.

A proper understanding of biblical prophecy is extremely important and is essential to the life of the believer (or unbeliever, for that matter). Without it, regardless of your spiritual background, you could be caught off guard and be unprepared for what is going to take place on the earth in the near future. Should this occur, you would most likely place yourself in spiritual and or physical jeopardy. If the rapture occurs and you are left behind, you will most likely suffer a terrible fate. Thus, I beseech you to take very seriously the information presented in this book, for it will be of such profound importance that I liken it to the importance of Christopher Columbus saying that the world is round.

Sixth Seal Rapture

rapture, seal, blood, moon, bible, prophecy, end, end times, end of the world, sixth, prewrath, pre wrath, christian, jesus, clouds, armageddon

Did you know that the rapture will not occur until after the sixth seal is opened? This may be different from what you have been told all of your life, but it is a conclusion from scripture that I can easily show you is true. In 1 Thes 4:15 – 5:2 we read;
 
15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
 
In this passage God the Holy Spirit speaking through the apostle Paul is teaching the Thessalonians about the rapture and calls the event “the day of the Lord.”

Fact: The day of the Lord is when the rapture occurs.

In Acts 2:20 we read “The sun shall moon shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come."

Fact: The day of the Lord occurs after the moon is turned to blood.

The moon is turned to blood after the sixth seal is opened as described in Revelation 6:12. “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood"

Fact: The moon is turned to blood after the sixth seal is opened.
Let’s put all the facts together in chronological order to see the conclusion.

Fact: The moon is turned to blood after the sixth seal is opened.

Fact: The day of the Lord occurs after the moon is turned to blood.


Fact: The day of the Lord is when the rapture occurs.


Conclusion: The rapture occurs after the sixth seal is opened.

This conclusion is confirmed in Rev 6:15,16 where we clearly see a description of the rapture; And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: At this point in time the rapture has occurred and all the people of the world have seen the Lord in the air, that is why they say “hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne.”

This is also the time at which God’s wrath begins. It is that simple; the rapture occurs after the sixth seal is opened. Remember “the truth shall set you free.” By the way the sixth seal is opened during the persecution of the antichrist, which begins after the abomination of desolation at the midpoint of the last 7 years. That places the rapture at an unknown time between the midpoint and the end of the last 7 years. For an in depth study of the end times read the FREE prophecy book; The Coming Epiphany.

God's Gift of Salvation

We are all going to die someday. Where will you go when you die? The Bible teaches us how we can know for sure that when we die we will go to heaven. There are 4 things we must know to be able to go to heaven when we die.

1. We are sinners. As the Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Sin is falling short of God’s perfection. Everyone has sinned many times in life. We have all lied, or stolen, or cheated, or done something wrong at some time in our lives. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10).



2. We deserve Hell. Realize that there is a punishment for being a sinner, and that punishment is death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). Not only a physical death, but also a spiritual death. The place of spiritual death is called Hell. “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rom. 21:8). There is probably no person alive who can say that they never told a lie. We all have sinned and we all deserve the punishment of Hell for our sin.
 


3. Jesus died for our sins.But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). Jesus willingly went to the cross, shed His blood, and died for our sins. He paid the price for our sins. He suffered the punishment that we deserve. When He was on the cross, Jesus suffered Hell for us. Hell is a place of total separation from God. When Jesus was on the cross, God the Father separated Himself from God the Son. That is why Jesus cried out “with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Jesus was experiencing separation from God the Father. He was suffering the Hell that we deserve. He was paying for our sins.



4. We must receive Christ by faith. In order to become a Christian, it is not enough to know that we are sinners, that we deserve Hell, and that Christ died for our sins, but we must receive Christ by faith. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8,9).

Notice that we cannot earn our way to heaven. We obtain salvation through faith, not by works. Faith basically boils down to placing your trust in something or someone. If you are sitting down while reading this, you are placing your faith or trust in the chair that you are sitting upon. Faith requires more than just an intellectual belief; it involves an action of your will. For example, if there were a pond covered with ice, and there were people standing around saying that the ice could hold them up, but they were not willing to walk on the ice, then they would only be demonstrating an intellectual belief and not faith. If they stepped out onto the ice, they would be demonstrating faith.
 
One can place their faith in Christ by simply calling out to Him in prayer, for the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” I expressed faith in Christ by sincerely praying a prayer like this:
 
“Dear Jesus, I am a sinner. I deserve Hell. Thank you for dying for my sins. Save me. Come into my life. Make me the kind of person that you want me to be. I thank you that you have and that you will take me to heaven when I die. Amen.”
 
If you sincerely pray that prayer with all your heart, then the Lord Jesus will come into your life and forgive your sins, and save you from an eternity of Hell. If you were to die tomorrow, you would go to heaven. Not because you are good enough to get there, but because you have received the payment of your sins. It is that simple.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (Jn 5:24)
An Epiphany will come to all.

The Purpose

Hello This is my first post. My purpose for this blog is to bring glory to God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The end of the world is approaching with breakneck speed. Most Christians are asleep to essential end times truths. Through God's power I will endeavor to help others understand end times Bible prophecy so that they are not caught unawares at the events that are about to transpire on the earth.
