America Is End Times Babylon

end times, babylon, america, usa, destruction, revelation, bible, prophecy, nuclear, end of world
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!"

222 Confirmation

Below is an email that I sent to a friend in early February regarding 2/22/2010. I am sharing it with you now because I think it will help some of us in the future and it will bring glory to God. Their are risks in sharing this as some may think it or me to be bizarre, but at the least it shows us that God can work in mysterious ways!

Hello Roy

Just had an interesting occurrence. Over the past few days I guess I have been having a few doubts about 2/22; if anything would happen or not. I think it was this morning that I prayed and asked God to confirm it to me. This afternoon I took a look at my power bill and 3 of the 5 digits were 2s. Then a little later I was having a little R&R with the kids and was playing the Nintendo WII. I had a score on one of the games that had 3 2s, then the next game had 3 3s in it. I thought all three of those occurrences were a little beyond coincidence so I prayed something like; if something was going to happen on 2/22 to confirm it with a 222 on the next game. So I then went to the ski jump game and my first score was a 222.4. I sat there dumbfounded for awhile. I took a pic of the screen, see attached. I had only played the game maybe 4 or 5 times and there is no way I could make the score come out like that. I guess the odds of that occurring are about 300 to 1. But if you count the other occurrences, then it would be higher.

Maybe this incident will validate what the guy did with the cards.

My gut feeling is that the 2/22 event will probably be financial (beginning of dollar death? defaulting on loans?) and or terrorist, maybe even constitutional or all 3 but whatever it is I am sure that it will play into the destruction of the of the United States as a sovereign nation.

Sincerely in Him
Bill


Over the past year or so I have been having a lot of occurrences with 11, 111, and multiples there of. For example just yesterday I was awoken several times in the night. I know I looked at the clock three times the first was 11:44, then 11:55, then 2:22. Stuff like this has been happening for months. I have asked God about this and do not have any clear direction yet but feel that God may be trying to show me that major end times may occur in relation to these numbers. For example I believe that WWIII will occur on day 1110 of the 70th week, which I explain in The Coming Epiphany. It now appears that this theory is starting to prove correct with the 222 associated with health care.
In regards to the "guy with the cards" that was in reference to the man who says that God confirmed to him that there will be a catastrophic west coast earthquake in September 2010. My friend and I were discussing whether the use of cards was valid. Here are the links to the card confirmations: September 2010 Signs, More Amazing Signs, The Math Odds, September Megaquake and Tsunami.
As it turned out looks like 2/22/2010 was mainly constitutional, however from what I have been reading, I do think that terrorist attacks and the collapse of the economy is coming.
Look at the time of this post, that was not planned. I also just noticed the date of this post 3/30/2010, it makes a 333. I also noticed the date in the pic above has a 222 and an 11 in it.
 
On another note; there are many orphan children in Haiti that are starving and need your help. I would really appreciate it if you could prayerfully consider helping the orphans and a good Christian school—Concord Christian Acad. The school wants to assemble and pack 10,000 meals and send them to missionaries in Haiti, who will then distribute them to the orphans.

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. (Source)
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!" I believe that it is the beginning of the end for America and she will be "done" by the second encoded date 12/21/2012.

The Dollar Code--222--322--health care--We are done!

Note: I think we could also see other key events happen on days all keying from 2/22/2010. We have already seen something 1 month past the day and 1 month and 1 day past the day. We could see things 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 111, 222 days past, 1 year 1 month 1 day past, etc. Time will tell. The more important consideration is; are you ready?

Why The Rapture May Occur 2014 - 2016

rapture, bible, prophecy, end times, 2013, 2014, 2015, seal, 2012, revelation, news, antichrist, pre wrath
 
Revised 5/22/14

If somebody asked me when do you think the rapture will occur? I would reply; "I do not know for sure, but the most probable dates I see are 2014-16." That is what I used to think until just recently when I became aware of some new prophecy data. Let me show you what I found as explained in Chapter 12 of The Coming Epiphany.




Chapter 12

When?

 



T

hat is the question everyone wants the answer to; when will the will these things take place? Are you ready for the answer? I do not know. But is there anything that we can look for that will enable us to come up with possible end times scenarios and maybe even a most probable end time scenario? Yes, I believe there is.

2014/2015 Lunar and Solar Eclipses

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 time before those tetrads of eclipses on feast days was in 1493/4. In 1492 the Jews were kicked out of Spain. Another interesting fact is that all of these tetrads occurred in Hebrew “pregnant years” or years with 13 months. These facts lead us to wonder if the upcoming tetrad is 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 a war with her Arab neighbors where she regains the Temple Mount setting the stage for major events of the end times? This is something to ponder and watch for, and in my opinion gives us a definite indication that the end times are upon us.

The Great Pyramid

It is believed by many that the Great Pyramid complex at Giza in its design contains time markers or date ciphers pointing to the First and Second coming of the Lord. There are two scriptures that are the basis for this conjecture.

In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. Isaiah 19: 19,20

Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day… Jeremiah 32:20a

Prophecy researcher Daniel Matson has made some startling discoveries regarding the date ciphers of the Great Pyramid complex at Giza. In Chapter 16 of his book, Signs of the End he states;

What is important is that there is valuable information that must be passed along that is a striking discovery concerning the Great Pyramid complex at Giza and its marking both advents of Christ. It is a discovery that is in line with the Bible, history, and the magnificence of the pyramids. It highlights the time in precise astronomical alignments. It is a discovery that fits the themes woven into the Bible concerning the coming King and it further supports the scenario developed in this book.

 

Thus his research has led him to believe that the Great Pyramid complex at Giza astronomically aligned with the First coming of the Lord, and he believes it will also at His Second Coming, and the alignment points to Rosh Hashanah 2017. What leads the author to this conclusion?

The basic idea is that the pyramid complex is a map of the heavens of a point in time when Christ the King returns with his armies. The pyramids show what is to be at meridian (Al Nitak in Orion), and also the causeways heading east from the pyramids show the importance of the rising sun or other items rising in the east. That the Sphinx also looks to the east is a factor as well. The point though was to see when there was a candidate for an alignment of Rosh Hashanah and the meridian alignment of Orion at dawn...Therefore, at dawn the morning before the Feast of Trumpets 2017, Al Nitak is precisely at meridian…

Let us not forget the all-important Christ angle to see where it might come into significance. At the moment Al Nitak is at meridian, Leo is in the east, but more importantly its star known as Regulus (the King) is precisely at the inclination of the Christ angle. Therefore, the Christ angle not only bisected Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, but it also bisects Regulus at this possible time of his Second Coming. The year 2017 is the first year from present that Rosh Hashanah comes immediately after September 20th—the time Al Nitak hits meridian precisely at dawn, and also when Regulus hits the Christ angle…

 

In analyzing the positioning of the stars, moon, and sun at the time of September 20, 2017, there was also another alignment. Venus will be in conjunction with Regulus at this time. So at this moment Venus the “Morning Star” will be aligned with the “King Star”, precisely at the Christ angle…

 

The ascending and descending passageways of the Great Pyramid share the common Christ angle, but one is actually the prime of the other. Looking at the computer model of the sky when Regulus and Venus are at the Christ angle just prior to dawn, there is again something suspicious. Below the horizon is Jupiter--referred to as the planet of the Messiah by the Jews…At the dawn of Rosh Hashanah 2017, Jupiter is at the precise Christ angle in the opposite scenario as the day before. Jupiter is below the horizon at 26.3 degrees…

 

So as there are opposite Christ angles, it would appear that the pyramid is a map of this event.  Jupiter is the suffering Messiah at the descending angle, whereas the “morning star” and glorious king are on the ascending angle.  Therefore, the Great Pyramid would be a map of this time when Rosh Hashanah coincides with the dawn meridian of Al Nitak and the positioning of Christ’s representative planets at the Christ angle.  What are the odds?  It would probably be safe to say that this is practically the only time these alignments could occur in our era… (Used by permission of author. I would highly recommend reading the entire chapter, which is available at this link http://2010rapture.org/signsoftheend/giza.html)

 

As already mentioned these many significant alignments lead him to believe that the First Coming was marked by the celestial alignment of the Great Pyramid, and that events surrounding the Second Coming will be marked by the celestial alignments on Rosh Hashanah in 2017. I contend that the alignment at Rosh Hashanah in 2017 is a significant occurrence and will align with important end times events. Is this why the pyramids were built, and have withstood throughout time? Are they a “sign and witness” of events surrounding the First and Second Coming of the Lord?  If they are, then they have profound prophetic significance for the year 2017, especially in light of the Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun.

 The Woman Clothed with the Sun

In Revelation 12 I believe that we are given a very important sign regarding the coming of the Lord

12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

 

Here I believe we see a symbolic picture of the nation of Israel—the woman—and the coming of the Christ child. I believe this symbolism appeared as a sign in the skies over Jerusalem in the alignment of the stars on Rosh Hashanah 9/11/3 BC. (Note: Click on the following link to see the images of the celestial alignments I will be referring to in this section; Look Up for Your Redemption Draweth Nigh.) On that day the constellation Virgo was “clothed with the sun,” and the moon was under her feet. Above her head 3 planets—Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter—were in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo, Regulus was also in conjunction with Jupiter. This Regulus/Jupiter conjunction is what David Larson, mentioned above, believes is the famed Star of Bethlehem. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 planets aligning with Regulus make the crown of 12 stars.

Now let’s examine the skies around the time that the Great Pyramid complex points to, Rosh Hashanah in 2017. On 9/20-21/17 Rosh Hashanah; Virgo is clothed with the Sun, the Moon is not under her feet but is in close conjunction with the sun, and there is an alignment of Jupiter, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Regulus, with Venus in conjunction with Regulus.

Three days after this alignment on 9/23/17, Virgo is “clothed with the sun,” the moon is now under her feet, and above her head are 3 planets—Mercury, Mars, and Venus, which are in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 aligning planets make the crown of 12 stars. Thus this alignment meets the criteria of the Rev. 12 sign and is similar to the 3 BC alignment. Interestingly enough this alignment occurs the day after the second day of Rosh Hashanah on the day of Shabbat Shuvah—the Sabbath of Return.[2] We will discuss implications regarding this below.

So there we have it, the sign of Revelation 12 in the sky above Jerusalem on special days, of which in their alignments and their meanings point to major prophetic events surrounding the First and Second Coming of Christ. Thus I believe these celestial alignments in 2017 have major prophetic implications of which we will discuss more in detail after the next piece of data.

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[3]

 

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.[4]

 

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.

The Most Probable Scenario

Let’s see if we can integrate all of the data discussed in this book into a “most probable scenario.” Here is a synopsis of some of the data and their associated dates.

 

2014-2015: Tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days—associated with Israel at war and or under persecution.

 

9/21/17: Pyramid alignments—associated with events surrounding the First and Second Coming of Jesus.

 

9/20-23/17: Rev. 12 Sign of the Woman clothed with the sun—associated with First and Second Comings of Jesus.

 

9/30/17: Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophecy—beginning of Messianic end times before Day of Atonement in 2017.

 

With this data in mind, and noting its important prophetic implications for Rosh Hashanah in 2017, I can foresee three possible scenarios based on that date;

 

1. The Rapture will occur on 9/23/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.

2. The abomination of desolation will occur around 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021 necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week.

3. The 70th Week will begin on 9/23/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.

 

Let’s consider each scenario from a scriptural point of view; in regards to scenario #1, it would suggest knowing the day of the rapture, which I believe would violate the principle of scripture of no one knowing the day and hour. In regards to Scenario #3—that the 70th week would begin on that day or around that time—is certainly a possibility that we will have to watch for, but the dates do not synchronize with fall feast days. That leaves us with scenario #2; let’s analyze this scenario to see if it is viable.

Here is the way I see the scenario; I believe the 2017 sign of the woman clothed with the sun, which aligns with the Sabbath of Return on 9/23/17, points to Israel “returning” to the Lord. As alluded to by Hosea 14:2 which is read on this special Sabbath day.

 

Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

 

Scripture tells us that this returning to the Lord by Israel is precipitated by the performing of the abomination of desolation by the antichrist after which Israel flees into the wilderness for 3.5 years.

 

14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:…18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. Mark 13

 

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:…

 

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days…

 

 14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Rev 12.

 

This returning to the Lord, if it occurs on 9/23/17, would follow the sign of the Great Giza Pyramid alignment at Rosh Hashanah on 9/21/2017, and may align with a significant event regarding the antichrist, such as when the devil enters into him—hmm…maybe that is why the pyramid is on the back of the dollar bill.

During this flight into the wilderness, after recognizing the Lord Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, fulfilling the Sabbath of Return, they then call out to Jesus for salvation and thus their sins are atoned for, fulfilling the feast of the Day of Atonement that occurs on 9/30/17.  And in the wilderness God provides for them and protects them, fulfilling the feast of Tabernacles that occurs on 10/5/17.

If this indeed will be the way it happens when will the beginning and end of the 70th Week be? If the 9/23/17 event is the abomination of desolation, which we have calculated to occur on day 1230, then calculating 1230 days before 9/23/17 brings us to 5/13/14—a possible beginning date of the 70th Week.[5]

Based on this possible starting point of 5/13/14 here is a chart showing the other date calculations.[6]

This scenario takes into account the pyramid alignment, the importance of the alignment and fulfillment of the fall feasts, and other prophetic data. But the question remains; is it viable and or is there any confirmation of this scenario? Maybe; I just recently became aware of 2 more very important signs in the heavens that occur in 2021 that may offer a confirmation. I believe celestial signs are the most important signs that we can look for as indicated in Gen 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

The Sign of the Cross

The sign occurs in the heavens on 2/11/21 and was discovered by a prophecy researcher  who believes the odds of this sign are as great as the odds of the 2017 sign—about 3 million to one.[7] (This sign can be viewed at the link in the footnote or at the link provided at the beginning of this chapter.) Therefore I agree with him that this is a significant sign and must be incorporated into any end times scenario. (Note: a cross sign also appeared at Christ’s First Coming, again discovered by the same researcher.)

In the chart above the end of the 70th Week, which would be 1290 days after day 1230, is calculated as 4/5/21, and the beginning of the Millennium which would be 1335 days later is on 5/20/21. And as you can see these end dates do not align with the important Cross sign of 2/11/21, giving the initial indication that this new scenario or the sign is not viable. However consider what happens at Trumpet 4.

 

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. Rev 8:12

 

Basically what this verse tells me is that after the sounding of the 4th Trumpet 1/3 of the day and night is gone. Since both the day and night appear to be shortened by 1/3, could this mean that the earth’s daily rotation speeds up so that a day occurs in 1/3 less time—that a day would now only be 16 hours long instead of 24 hours long? This is something that I never considered before in my date calculations.

If the days were shortened by 1/3 and the earth’s progression around the sun stayed the same, then what this would mean practically is that the days would still be counted as normal, but the earth would not be in its normal position relative to the sun for that date. For example on any particular day of the year the earth reaches a certain position relative to the sun, and one year later it should have gone around the sun and be in the same approximate position. However, If the days were shortened by 1/3, then one year later on the calendar, the earth would only be 2/3 the way around the sun. Thus causing the position of the earth in regards to the sun to not be in sync and the earth would fall behind the calendar date. Numerically, the 365 calendar days would be shortened to about 243 days in earth/sun position days.

If the days will be shortened because of the 4th Trumpet, and Trumpet 4 occurred on 7/30/20, then the 294 days from 7/30/20 until 5/20/21 would be shortened to 196 days in earth/sun position days.  Thus the earth’s position in regards to the sun at the calculated day of the beginning of the Millennium (5/20/21) would now align with its normal earth/sun position on 2/11/21, and if the moon appeared in the same place in the sky, then the sign of the cross would be in the skies that day.

The Sign of the Infernal Trio

On 1/12/21 another sign appears in the skies discovered by the same prophecy researcher mentioned above.[8] He believes this sign is a depiction of Jesus—the rider on the white horse defeating the false prophet, the antichrist, and the devil, and throwing them into the lake of fire. He also believes the odds of this sign are about 3 million to one. In this celestial alignment we have Venus—the bright morning star/Jesus—in the constellation Sagitarius—the horse. We also have the three planets, Jupiter, Mercury, and Saturn—the antichrist, false prophet, and satan—in Capricorn—the goat. This occurrence is described in Revelation 19.

 

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

 

How does the sign occurring on 1/12/21 confirm the scenario that I presented above? On the chart above I have the Second Coming—when Jesus returns to the earth at Armageddon, which we know is when the infernal trio gets thrown into the pit—as occurring on 4/5/21. In shortened days 4/5/21 in earth/sun position days aligns with 1/12/21—the day of the sign of the Infernal Trio!

 

Thus these 2 signs in the heavens may offer a confirmation of this scenario. Here is a chart indicating the shortened dates.

To further confirm this scenario I decided to check some of the other dates. I checked the skies for three dates 10/23/17: When the antichrist is supposed to take over the world, 7/30/20: When Trumpet 4 is supposed to occur, and 3/6/21 (12/23/20): When the bowl judgments are supposed to occur. What I found in the skies on those days surprised me and may offer another confirmation of this scenario. You can see and read about these signs at The End Times Forecaster blog; What Prophecy Time is it? A Few More Confirmations!?.

I also decided to check some of the dates in the scenario with the Hebrew calendar. What I found also surprised me. 7/30/20—the possible day of Trumpet 4—falls on Tish’a B’Av, the day when the First and Second Temples were destroyed—a fitting day for retribution to be brought upon the world for their unrepentant sins. 3/6/21—the possible day for the bowl judgments to start—falls on the Sabbath Parah or Sabbath of the Red Heifer. This is when the Red Heifer would be sacrificed before the priest as recorded in Numbers 19. This Sabbath has many allusions to Jesus and His Second Coming. 4/5/21—the possible day for the Second Coming and Armageddon—falls on the last day of Passover/feast of unleavened bread. This feast commemorates Israel’s deliverance from Egypt and also has many allusions to the coming Messiah who will deliver Israel from the persecution of the antichrist at His Second Coming. 5/20/21—the possible day for the beginning of the Millennium—falls on the day after the second day of Shavuot and depending on how you count and round things off could also be a hit. Shavuot is the day Israel was given the Torah and became a nation, it is also known as Pentecost—the birthday of the Church and has illusions to the time when the kingdom of God will be established on earth.

Thus we have 6 critical dates in our scenario that align with important Jewish days, we also have many signs in the skies on several dates in our scenario. Does all of this information confirm our scenario? That is certainly something to ponder. I have put all of this date information into a diagram entitled “The 70th Week of Daniel,” viewable at the link.

Conclusion

Thus in light of all the prophecy data I have at this time, I can foresee three possible scenarios based on the important signs of 2017;

 

1. The Rapture will occur on 9/23/17, with the Second Coming 2018-2020 necessitating a 2011-2013 start of the 70th week.

2. The abomination of desolation will occur on 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021 necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week.

3.  The 70th Week will begin on 9/23/17 with the Second Coming in 2024.

 

Further I believe that scenario #2—“the abomination of desolation will occur on 9/23/17, with the Millennium beginning in 2021, necessitating a 2014 start of the 70th week”—is the most likely scenario.

Is scenario #2 the way it will work out? As always time will tell, but realize that this scenario takes into account and synchronizes all the date parameters, Trumpet 4, the 2 major signs of 2017, the cross sign of 2021, the infernal trio sign of 2012, the fulfilling of the fall feasts, several important dates in the Jewish calendar, and several other signs in the heavens.

If this scenario is the one, then here are some things that we can watch for. First let me mention that if this scenario is valid we do not have to have seen anything of major prophetic importance happen around 5/13/14, for I believe it is highly possible for the 70th week to start silently. Also if this scenario is valid then we will see the first 4 Seals of Revelation occur between 5/13/14 and the calculated midpoint of 10/23/17. Further if this will be the case and the antichrist will arise and take over the world on 10/23/17, then we will see the 6th Seal rapture sometime between 10/23/17 and early 2020. Also if the rapture will align with Rosh Hashanah then, Rosh Hashanah in 2018 and 2019 would be the years to watch.

So let’s get back to the original question; when? I do not know the exact year, but I do believe that we are getting close, as the prophetic data and the “most probable scenario” seems to imply. As the saying goes; time will tell, look for WWIII (Seal 2), which will most likely be the definitive sign that we are about to enter into the time period of the great tribulation in which the rapture will occur. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28.

Of course there is always the possibility that there is other pertinent prophecy data that I am not aware of, and thus another scenario may be the correct one. However in light of the important signs around Rosh Hashanah 2017, I do not see the Second Coming (when Jesus returns to earth at Armageddon) occurring any later than 2024—meaning we are very close to seeing major prophetic events occurring.

Here is something else to consider; if the 2017 hypothesis is correct and WWIII and the other seals will be opened in the near future, are you ready? Are you spiritually, mentally, and physically prepared for the end times? That is what we will discuss in the next chapter—being prepared.
On another note; there are many orphan children in Haiti that are starving and need your help. I would really appreciate it if you could prayerfully consider helping the orphans and a good Christian school—Concord Christian Acad. The school wants to assemble and pack 10,000 meals and send them to missionaries in Haiti, who will then distribute them to the orphans. Would you take a minute, check out a website of a family in the school, and prayerfully consider sponsoring them? Even if you can only spare $5 or $10—every little bit helps, and it only takes a minute, and you can donate securely by credit card.
Thank you in advance!
With deepest appreciation.

[2] Shabbat Shuvah or Shabbat T'shuvah ("Sabbath [of] Return" שבת שובה or "Sabbath [of] Repentance" שבת תשובה) refers to the Shabbat that occurs during the Ten Days of Repentance, but is between (i.e. not including): the two consecutive Days of Rosh Hashanah; and the Day of Yom Kippur. The name Shabbat Shuvah comes from the first word of the Haftarah that is read on that day, Hosea 14:2-10, and literally means "Return!" It is alternately known as Shabbat T'shuvah owing to its being one of the Aseret Y'may T'shuvah (Ten Day of Repentance). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Shabbat#Shabbat_Shuvah




[5] It is possible to shift the date parameters up to 30 days past 5/13/14 to 6/12/14. Also remember Hebrew timing and inclusive and exclusive accounting would make all dates +- 2 days.


[6] The 45 days comes from 1335 days minus the 1290 days given to us in Daniel 12. 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
