Chapter 10

Chapter 10
The Son of Perdition



“I am God!” I expect to hear this statement coming out of the mouth of the man that will be the first and last human ruler of the entire world—the antichrist. And, believe it or not, many will believe his words and fall for his deception, and he will be heralded as the greatest man to ever live as he brings peace to a worn-torn, tumultuous world. Yes, there is coming a day when the world will cry out for someone to bring peace to the world and rule over them. After the chaos of the first four seals unfolds upon the earth—financial collapse, WWIII, famines, plagues, and death — and the desperation during the aftermath; the world will unfortunately turn to a man filled with satan to solve its problems — the false messiah, the son of perdition, the antichrist.

Since authority over the world will be given to him for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week, his actions will affect every person living on the earth at that time. With the opening of the fifth seal, no one on earth will be able to buy or sell without taking his mark (Rev. 13:16,17) and he will wage war against Christians and Jews and they will suffer severe persecution at his hands: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Rev 13:7) Here is what the illuminati plan revealed in the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” say about his reign of despotism “and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any ... who oppose us by deed or word."

We have briefly discussed the antichrist throughout the book, but since he will hold such a prominent position—the head of the NWO—and will affect so many, I believe that we should examine the biblical facts and other pertinent information about him. Exposing him may also help some avoid the trap of his deceptions.

What the Prophecies Reveal
One of the most prominent, easily recognized, and most likely public actions of the antichrist prophesied in scripture, which we have already discussed in detail, is that in the midst of the 70th Week, he will strengthen the seven-year peace treaty that was made with “the many.”

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Dan. 9:27)

Not only will he strengthen the peace treaty that will have already been in existence before he comes on the scene, but also this verse tells us another prominent action of the antichrist—that he will perform the abomination of desolation. This is when he will enter the temple and stop the sacrifices and proclaim to the entire world that he is god.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2: 3,4)

Of course this cannot happen until there is a temple, which will most likely be rebuilt during the first half of the 70th Week after the Dome of the Rock is destroyed by his henchmen. Daniel gives us more insights about the antichrist and his religious beliefs.

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (Dan. 11:37-39)

Some interpret this verse to mean the antichrist will worship a god of forces/science and that he will set himself above all gods. The phrase “nor the desire of women” could refer to the fact that he will not worship a female god or could be in regards to his sexual orientation.

When will his reign begin? From previous discussions, we have calculated that the abomination of desolation will occur 1200 days after the start of the 70th Week and his reign will begin 60 days later, at the midpoint of the 70th Week. His reign will last for 3.5 years. See the chart entitled “The 70th Week of Daniel

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. (Rev. 13:5)

Another scripture that confirms his 3.5 year reign is found in Dan. 7:23-25.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. (Dan. 7:23-25)

Note that this scripture also indicates that he will change “times and laws.” Many think that this is an indication that the antichrist will change the way that time, days, and months will be accounted for.

Another verse confirming his 3.5-year reign and when it begins is Rev. 19:20, which tells us that at Armageddon the antichrist is thrown into the bottomless pit. Therefore, his reign must start 3.5 years before that, placing its beginning 60 days after the abomination of desolation.

Let’s examine another fact about the antichrist. Scripture tells us that the antichrist will come from one of the old Roman Empire countries.

And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Dan. 9:26)

It was the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD. Thus, the “prince that shall come” will be from one of the countries that made up the Roman Empire, which stretched from modern-day Europe to the Middle East as far as Turkey. Even the recently constructed European Parliament building suggests a link between the European Union—one of the 10 horns of the beast—and the antichrist. The building has 679 seats. Seat number 666—the number the Bible uses to identify the antichrist—remains unoccupied at this point in time.
Comments Ian Paisley:

It is certainly a building of the Space Age. The seats of its massive hemicycle are designed like the crew seats in the Star Trek space machines. There are 679 of them – but wait for it! While these seats are allocated to Members, one seat remains unallocated and unoccupied. The number of that seat is 666. The relevant section of the seating-plan provided to each Member reads as follows:

664 Thomas-Mauro
665 Zissener
666 -------
667 Cappato
668 Turco

Revelation 13:18: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” That is 666. Today this scripture is being fulfilled before our very eyes. The antichrist's seat will be occupied. The world awaits his full and final development. The Lord will destroy him by the spirit of His mouth (the Word of God) and by the brightness of His coming (2 Thes. 2:8). The coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
[1]

Some have even made the assertion that since America was born out of Europe, she could be considered a part or extension of the old Roman Empire and that the antichrist could come from America. I see this as a remote possibility, but believe that the antichrist will most likely arise from one of the actual old Roman Empire countries.

The quote above brings out another fact about the antichrist. His number is 666. All letters have number values associated with them. Many believe that this verse indicates that the number values of the letters of his name must add up to 666. Though I see that as a possibility, it may be that his number could be in reference to something else, such as the parliament seat number, or it could even be the number of his mark. The mark will most likely be a computer chip planted under the skin in the hand or forehead. Everyone who receives the mark/chip will be given a unique number so that computer and satellite can track him or her. So it could be that the number of the chip that the antichrist receives himself could be #666. So it is uncertain as to which scenario or a combination thereof will come to pass. We will just have to wait and see.

Another prophecy that the antichrist will fulfill is that he will eventually rule the world from Jerusalem.


But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. (Rev. 11:2)

And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. (Dan. 11:45)

Daniel 7 reveals to us that his reign will be a violent one, involving many wars. Not only will he attack Jews and Christians, but he will also subdue three kings and their countries/spheres of influence. As already discussed this will probably occur just after the rapture.

And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: (Dan. 7: 24,25)

Daniel 11 also tells us that he will participate in numerous military campaigns.

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. (Dan. 11:40-44)

Here we see the antichrist involved in war with the king of the south (Egypt and her allies) and the king of the north (Russia and her allies). We have identified this particular military campaign as the Gog-Magog war.

Another prominent prophecy concerning the antichrist is that he will suffer a deadly wound to the head and be healed as described in Rev. 13:3.

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

Most believe that this verse reveals that the antichrist will be wounded in the head, bringing him to the point of death or even actually dying. He will then be healed by satanic power, causing the entire world to “wonder” after him.

Not only will the true antichrist fulfill the biblical prophecies concerning him, but it is also interesting to note that the Illuminati are looking for their so-called “messiah” to fulfill certain of their prophecies, as well. One of those is revealed to us on the symbol of the Illuminati organization, the CFR. It shows the coming world ruler riding naked on a white horse with only one of his eyes showing. Many think this symbol foretells that the coming world ruler will be one-eyed and, at some fulfilling moment, will appear naked. There is even a scripture that some believe speaks of the coming antichrist as being one-eyed. “Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened” (Zech. 11:17). Will the antichrist become blind or lose his eye as a result of the deadly wound he receives foretold in Revelation 13? We will have to wait and see.

Further light has been shed on Biblical prophecies that the antichrist will attempt—and appear—to fulfill, in order to deceive the world that he is their Messiah. These yet-to-be-fulfilled prophesies are listed in Peter Lemesurier’s blasphemous book The Armageddon Script (p. 231).

1. The restored Messiah must reappear on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives at the time of the great earthquake.

2. He must enter Jerusalem from the east, escorted by a procession of rejoicing followers dressed in shining white.

3. Visiting the tomb of his spiritual ancestor, King David, he must emerge in suitably-perfumed royal robes as the great monarch returned.

4. Supported by a popular rising, he must proceed with his followers to the Temple mount, there to be enthroned, anointed and crowned King of the New Israel.

5. In token of his power, the cloud of the Divine presence must descend upon him amid thunders and lightnings.

This is what Illuminati are looking for their Messiah, the antichrist, to do. He will attempt to partially duplicate what Jesus will do when He returns to earth after Armageddon. And yes, I believe that the antichrist will fulfill these prophecies to the amazement of many. But these are not all the prophecies that the real Messiah must fulfill. Nor are they the way in which Jesus will fulfill them. These are only a select few that the antichrist will appear to fulfill through trickery and deceit.

The scriptures say that the antichrist will be given great—but limited—power and he will deceive many. “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (Matt. 24:24). It is noteworthy that prophecy number three above states that the antichrist will be a descendant of David. There is a popular but blasphemous book called the Da Vinci Code which asserts that certain royal European bloodlines are descended from the supposed marriage between Mary Magdalene and Jesus.

The premise is that Mary Magdalene stood pregnant with His baby as He was crucified, and that she was whisked away to safety immediately after the crucifixion. Later, as the story goes, Mary Magdalene gave birth to a girl, the alleged physical daughter of Jesus. Subsequently, the girl grew up and married and gave birth to another girl. This trend supposedly continued on with girl births always until this present time…there was and always will be a female descendant of Jesus until finally a male child is born of that bloodline. This male child is to be the ruler of the world.[2]

We know this coming “ruler of the world” to be the antichrist. This ridiculous theory is pure blasphemy, but is part of the intricate plan to trick the world into accepting the claims of the false messiah. There are other deceptions which foster these heresies such as the book entitled The Gospel of Judas, and the incredulous claim that they have found the body of Jesus in a tomb.

We have briefly examined the significant prophecies concerning the antichrist to help us understand what he is like and what he will do. In the past, there have been individuals who have been considered by many to be types of the antichrist. I believe it may help our understanding of the antichrist if we examine some of these past types.

Learning from History
To learn more about the coming antichrist, we can look to history. Many consider the historical figure Antiochus Epiphanes to be a type of the coming antichrist. Some of his actions are recorded in Dan. 11:28–33. Like the coming antichrist, Antiochus also committed a type of an abomination of desolation:

That most blasphemous of all desecrations of the Jerusalem temple occurred in 168 B.C. when Antiochus ordered that swine, the most ceremonially unclean of all animals, be offered on the temple altar of burnt offerings. And to make the sacrilege still worse, he insisted that those animals be offered to the pagan god Zeus. Because he had declared himself to be Theos Epiphanes (meaning; ‘the manifest god’), and even more explicitly Zeus Epiphanes (‘The manifestation of Zeus’), he was actually demanding worship of himself in place of almighty God.[3]

On Kislev 15, 168 BC, Antiochus erected an idol of Zeus, the supreme deity of the Greek pantheon, on the holy altar in the courtyard. Not surprisingly, it bore the face of Antiochus. On the birthday of Zeus (Kislev/December 25), Antiochus offered a pig on the altar. The pig was the ultimate abomination to the Jewish mind, strictly forbidden by the law of God. Antiochus sprinkled its blood in the Holy of Holies and poured its broth over the Holy scrolls before he cut them to pieces and burned them.[4]

Van Kampen has identified several parallels between Antiochus and the coming antichrist.

First, under the guise of friendship and the promise of protection, both men make covenants with the nation of Israel

Second, as in the days of Antiochus, many in Israel will again yield to this diabolical servant of satan after the signing of the covenant, again seeking to gain the favor of this powerful world ruler.

Third, after making their treaties with Israel, while Israel lives under a false security, both men seek to conquer Egypt….

Fourth, both men proclaim themselves to be gods and demand worship from their subjects, and those Jews who refuse become the primary target of their wrath.

Fifth, Both tyrants have to contend with these groups of Jews who refuse to worship or serve them….
[5]

Hitler was another type of antichrist, to whom satan promised to hand over the world. He was a great orator and charismatic leader who masqueraded as a Christian. He was a real wolf in sheep’s clothing who attempted to take over the world and brought severe persecution and death upon the Jews and some Christians. He is the most recent example of a type of antichrist, and in fact, many including himself thought that he was the antichrist. Cutting Edge has written an excellent article showing many parallels between Hitler and the coming antichrist.[6]


Judas was also a type of antichrist. Both he and the antichrist are given the same name—“son of perdition”: “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled” (Jn 17:12); “and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (II Thes 2:3). The phrase “son of perdition” means—by their own choice—that they are both damned to Hell. Even though these diabolical men were types of the antichrist, they were not the antichrist because they did not fulfill all the prophecies regarding him.

The Infernal Duo
The antichrist, whoever he is, will not be acting alone. He will have a powerful helper, the false prophet, who will join in the act and perform signs and wonders to deceive many into believing that the antichrist is who he says that he is.

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Rev. 13:11-15)

Thus, the infernal duo of the antichrist and false prophet will be able to accomplish many miraculous feats, either by technological means and or by satanic power. It has been documented that select satanic individuals can already exhibit certain powers, such as disappearing and reappearing at will in completely different dress and form, communicating by telepathy, and levitating. As a pair, the antichrist and false prophet will be a strong delusionary force. Unfortunately, many will choose to follow them into Hell. As we see, the main job of the false prophet is to get people to accept and worship the antichrist. With great demonic powers, the false prophet will work so-called “miracles” and even have the ability to bring fire—or, some think, lightning—out of the sky. At the end of the passage we even see that he has the power to give life to an image of the antichrist and cause it to speak. He is also given power to kill all that refuse to worship it.

Van Kampen interprets this portion of the passage in a very interesting way:

The meaning of this passage, then is that after the world is commanded to build its own “images” or idols of antichrist, some form of spirit or life will be put within these “images,” so “that the image of the beast might even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed” (Rev. 13:15)! Indeed, these idols will be different from all the idols the world has previously known…. In other words the idols and images will be indwelt by satan’s demons, to form a worldwide monitoring system to enforce the worship of antichrist (whose likeness the images will bear), and to destroy any human being who refuses to comply with that worship….As Christians, therefore, it will be absolutely essential that we do not go near these images or enter any place where they are present—so that the images have no opportunity to “speak” and identify us, or to “cause [us who] do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.[7]

It appears that the false prophet may have the ability to do greater satanic signs than even the antichrist. Who will this false prophet be? He will be the leader of the one-world religion. Step four of the Illuminati’s New Jerusalem Covenant project, referenced in the last chapter, entails the Pope dedicating a one-world religious system of which he is the head. Thus, if the Illuminati plan is fulfilled, a future pope will be the false prophet. This evil duo, along with the devil himself, will work their evil deeds right up to the end, still deluded into thinking that they will destroy God by taking over the world.

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (Rev. 16:13-16)

Their deceptions will be strong enough to deceive the armies of the world to gather outside of Jerusalem in the valley of Meggido and fight against God. And as already discussed, we know where the wicked trio of the dragon (satan), the beast (antichrist), and the lamb with horns (false prophet-Pope) will end up.

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that 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. (Rev. 19:19–21)

The armies that they gather together to fight against God will also be destroyed in the battle of Armageddon.

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Rev. 4:19–20)

So for the last 3.5 years before the return of the Lord, a man—filled with satan—will rule the world and will claim to be God. After the performing of the abomination of desolation and opening of the fifth seal, he will begin persecuting Jews and Christians. He will also engage in military conquests headquartered from Jerusalem. In his final battle—where he deceives the world to fight against God—he will finally come to an end.

Can We Know His Identity?
We know what prophecies the antichrist will fulfill and what he will be like, but do we know who he is? Is he alive today? There has been much speculation concerning the identity of the coming antichrist. There are people alive today who claim to know who the antichrist is, and there are some who have even claimed that title for themselves. Many have made assertions, such as the Pope, Prince Charles, Prince William, Maitreya, Obama, Bill Clinton, Solano, and many others. Some have written books presenting strong evidence as to who the antichrist is. Such as The antichrist and a Cup of Tea, which makes a strong case for Prince Charles. Another antichrist researcher firmly believes that prince William is the antichrist.[8] However, at this point in time—no matter how strong—all the evidence is just coincidental. I believe it unfair of me or anyone else to point a finger at someone and say they are the antichrist. Even people who believe they are may only be deceived themselves. I believe that the world will not know for sure who the antichrist is until he fulfills the prophecies concerning himself.

One particularly disturbing development is the rise of a charismatic leader called Maitreya, who is alive today and living in London. This man has not revealed his true identity to the world at this time. Many are asserting that he is the coming world ruler. If you examine some of his teachings, you will see they are claiming that Maitreya is God and will make himself known to the world on what is called “The Day of Declaration.” Could that be the same as the day of the abomination of desolation? They also claim that he is descended from the “Masters of Wisdom, that group of advanced beings.” These are who aliens claim to be; “advanced beings, ascended Masters of Wisdom of the Hierarchy.” Will he claim to be God by saying that he was the alien who started life on this planet? I think that is a good possibility. As mentioned earlier in this book, I believe the antichrist and events associated with him will be the precipitating factor in the great falling away that will occur before the rapture. I feel strongly that, intertwined with all the occurrences listed above, will be actions of demons posing as aliens who have come to help our planet. The devil has been orchestrating a great deception at the hand of aliens, and by their own admission, they will be part of it. Here is a quote that reveals the greatest purpose of their deception.

Aliens utilize standard New Age terminology when they communicate with their human “contactees.” The best illustration of this is their teaching to the “contactees” that “the Ascended Masters of the Hierarchy” are preparing to intervene again in world History, to lead mankind to a higher level of consciousness. They will select a human person and endow him with superhuman powers and knowledge. This man will lead us to world government and world peace.[9]

Those versed in Bible knowledge can readily recognize this coming world ruler as the antichrist.

Now, the time has come, the Aliens say, for them to intervene again in world history. This time they will intervene to save man from himself…. These Aliens will accomplish all this by raising up a man who will be imbued with a special level of consciousness…. of course, this man will be Maitreya the Christ, the Anti-Christ.[10]

While details on Maitreya and aliens go beyond the realm of this book, this is a name that readers should remember, for his teachings are blasphemous and, unfortunately, I am afraid many nominal Christians will fall for his deception, and the deception of others like him, and be engulfed by this satanic indoctrination that no doubt will precipitate the great falling away. So the answer of the question “Who is the antichrist?” We will not know until we see him fulfill the prophecies concerning him. Is he alive today? With all the recent prophetic developments taking place in the world today I believe that he is most likely alive, willing and ready to come on the scene. Interestingly enough, in a speech to the U.N., The President of Iran, Mahmood Ahmadinejad, prayed for the 12th Imam, the Islamic Messiah, to come on the world scene.

From the beginning of time, humanity has longed for the day when justice, peace, equality and compassion envelop the world. All of us can contribute to the establishment of such a world. When that day comes, the ultimate promise of all Divine religions will be fulfilled with the emergence of a perfect human being who is heir to all prophets and pious men. He will lead the world to justice and absolute peace.

"0 mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository, the promised one, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace. 0 Lord, include us among his companions, followers and those who serve his cause
."[11]

While Muslims will call him the 12th Imam, Hindus will call him "Maitreya", the Buddhists will call him the reincarnation of Buddha, Jews will call him Messiah, and deceived nominal Christians will call him Jesus, but true Christians will call him "antichrist".

The antichrist in a Nutshell
In summary the following is a list of information that the Bible reveals to us about the antichrist:

1. In the midst of the 70th Week, the antichrist will strengthen the peace treaty.
2. He will perform the abomination of desolation by stopping the sacrifice in the temple and proclaiming himself to be God.
3. He will subdue three kings/spheres of influence of the New World Order.
4. He will be a great orator.
5. He will persecute and kill Jews and Christians.
6. He will rule the world from Jerusalem.
7. His number will be 666.
8. No one will be able to buy or sell unless he has his mark.
9. He will attack Egypt.
10. He will suffer a deadly wound and be healed.
11. He will rule the world for 1260 days, also described in the Bible as 42 months or three-and-one-half years.

Extra biblical sources tell us the following:

1. He will come on the scene 91 days after WWIII.
2. He will be an alleged descendant of David via the heretical and blasphemous assertion that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married.
3. He will also be a descendant of the masters of the ages. Thus, he will be connected with “aliens.”
4. He will appear on the Mount of Olives at the time of a great earthquake.
5. Dressed in white, he will lead a procession entering Jerusalem from the east.
6. He will proceed to the Temple Mount, where he will be crowned king of Israel.
7. He will be accompanied by displays of thunder and lightning.

“I am God! Bow down and worship me!” As already stated I expect to hear these words coming from the mouth of the antichrist. Many being deceived will not recognize him and will bow down and worship especially when they are faced with not being able to buy or sell unless they do so. If the peace treaty, which starts the 70th Week, is signed in the near future, and if we live to the midpoint of the 70th Week, then we will see this man come to power and Jews and Christians will experience intense persecution at his hands. Regardless of what happens, we should not be afraid, for the Lord will take care of us.

Now that we have established a clear picture of the events and the major players during the end-times we will now turn our attention to developing a more exact chronology of the end.

Know Fear -- No Fear

end times, bible, prophecy, fear, tribulation, revelation
The world is entering one of the most tumultious periods in its existence--the end times. The sorrows and tribulations that are coming upon the world in the next few years are going to be intense. I must admit that thinking about the future has brought fear into my heart and may have brought fear into yours. Some do not even want to talk about the end times because it frightens them too much.

I know this; God does not want you to be afraid and God does want you to know the truth about the end times--for "the truth will set you free."

So how can we not be afraid? The answer; by fearing God.

For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. 13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; Isaiah 8:11-14

If we fear God by acknowledging who He is, the infinitely powerful creator who holds us accountable for our sins, and call out to Him to be saved we become one of His children. Just as parents have a desire protect their children, God will protect His in an infinitely greater way.

So the fear of the Lord brings protection and with protection comes the removal of fear. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: Prov 1:7a and that knowledge will vanquish fear.

What will God specifically do for His children? Job 5 gives a good summary: Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 20 In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. 21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. 22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23 For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. 24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin. 25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth. 26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season. 27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.

If we fear the Lord and are saved and become His child He will protect us and He will only allow times of tribulation and anguish to come upon us if it is for our good. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28. Problems can also come upon us for chastisement because of our disobedience. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 1Cor 11:30.

To sum it all up: Knowing fear leads to no fear. Let us rest securely in our Father's hands.

Chapter 9

Chapter 9
The Fourth Beast

Have you ever heard the term “New World Order?” That is the term given to the coming one world government. Former President Bush made reference to the NWO in several speeches. The Washington Times recently reported on the fact that President George Bush called for just such a New World Order while giving a speech in Canada:

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — President Bush yesterday challenged international leaders to create a new world order, declaring pre-September 11 multilateralism outmoded and asserting that freedom from terrorism will come only through pre-emptive action against enemies of democracy.[1]

In his inauguration speech, President Bush also acknowledged that the United States is going forward with the plan set about to bring in the “new order of the ages” or in other words the New World Order.[2] This coming one world government, NWO, was foreseen by Daniel thousands of years ago in a vision.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. (Dan 7:7-8)

Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast…Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. (Dan 7:19-27)

The apostle John also saw a vision of the end times demonic world kingdom in Revelation 13.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev 13:1-8)

This most dreadful world empire represented by the fourth beast will be controlled by the devil himself, of which the antichrist will be the leader for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week. The NWO, the final world kingdom, will be the supreme entity on the earth during the end-times, and this final world kingdom will directly and indirectly affect many people’s lives. They will be responsible for much of what occurs on the earth during the 70th Week and directly responsible for the first 5 seals. I feel it is necessary for people to know about the NWO so that people would not be caught off guard by their actions. The more you know about the NWO, the more you can help others avoid the great deception that is coming and that is already at work in the world today.

What Is the New World Order?
Throughout the ages many people—starting with Adam and Eve—have been deceived into following satan and doing his bidding. For the last couple of hundred years, satan has gathered a group of people whose goal has been to take over the world and form a one-world government. This group of people could best be called ”the illuminati.” And can refer to any group which has “seen the light” and been “illuminated” in the satanic way described above. This would include Masons, Theosophists, Knights Templar, satanists, pagans, and New Age adherents. All of these groups are very similar in belief.[3]

Here is a quote from New Age adherent and promoter David Spangler that shows the satan/Illuminati/New Age connection.

Lucifer is the angel of man’s inner light….Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks….If man says, ‘Come in,’ Lucifer becomes….the being who carries…the light of wisdom….Lucifer is literally the angel of experience. He is an agent of God’s love…and we move into a new age…each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luceriferic initiation….It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.[4]

In recent years, Illuminati have risen to the top of world and national politics. Here is a list of a few of the reported modern day Illuminati groups: The Carnegies, The CFR, The Bilderbergers, The Rothschilds, and the Tri Lateral Commission. Illuminati are in key world positions and control much of what happens in the world. Listen to what Jim Searcy has to say about the power and control of the Illuminati:

Do not think for a moment you are going to vote the Illuminati out of office. They control the major and minor political parties. They control the process of government, they control the process of information flow, they control the process of creating money and finally they control Christendom. (However, God controls the hearts of His people.) In short, the Illuminati are generational satanic bloodlines which have gained the most power. A generational satanist described the Illuminati as “satan’s elite.” The Illuminati is the secret occult oligarchies which rule the world. God Himself has told us that the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one. Indeed a small group of satanic families control their nation and the world from behind the scenes. They have satanic power through their secret societies and exercise this power from behind the scenes.[5]

By their own admission, Illuminati also control the major media outlets;

We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. —David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991, Master Conspiring Globalist

Much research has been done about the Illuminati and the coming New World Order. The Conspiracy Archive, for example, has written a great article giving an overview of the Illuminati and its players.[6] Henry Makow has also written many informative articles about the illuminati.[7] There is also a very informative report available for download at the Three World Wars Web site. There are also a myriad of books available on the subject.

Former satanist Doc Marquis had this to say about how satan has deceived the illuminati into joining with him to take over the world.

According to their religious philosophy, the Illuminati believe: that in the beginning, Lucifer was equal to GOD in all things. However, as the millenniums rolled by, GOD became jealous of Lucifer’s equality, and had him, and all those who followed him, thrown out of heaven. Right now, the Illuminati are convinced that they are summoning up enough of “the force,” so that at the Battle of Armageddon, they’ll kill GOD and the Holy Spirit, and put Lucifer on the throne where they feel he rightfully belongs.[8]

And yes, one day God will allow satan and his cohorts to take over the world at least, temporarily. They will take over the world during the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week, when the antichrist is given authority over all nations, tribes, and kingdoms. “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” (Rev 13:5) Of course they will not kill God, as they believe. They will be utterly decimated at the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 19:20).

This coming New World Order has an intricate plan to take over the world. Its plan was first voiced by Masonry in the 1700s as detailed by historian Bernard Fay.

Masonry, having thus ensured the political unity of England, started a new task: to try to unify political principles and customs throughout the world…. In a century when the conflicting religious denominations had reached a dead-lock, the only way for humanity to achieve unity was through freemasonry.[9]

So we can see that the Masons were the first ones to actively promote this. We will briefly discuss Masonry to try and understand what and who they are. But before we do that, let me say that within Masonry, there is an organization within an organization and the vast majority of Masons know nothing about its real meaning or purpose. Here is what David Bay, director of Cutting Edge ministries, has to say about this double organization: “One organization is deliberately lied to and misled with false interpretations, while the inner organization knows the spiritual Truth of Freemasonry, and embraces it with heart, soul, and mind.”[10]

Masons themselves admit that there is a double organization. Here is what Mason Manly P. Hall said about this:

Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity—an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect…the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society…devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic, and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most august fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcannum arcandrum.[11]

Albert Pike, who was a highly revered Mason, reveals the purpose for this double organization:

Masonry, like all Religions, all mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls light, and draw them away from it.[12]

Pike was a genius and was able to read and write in 16 different languages, and was the grand commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859-1891. He was also an avowed satanist and was known to have a bracelet in which he used to summon satan. Pike’s teachings revealed much about the true meaning of Masonry. In 1858, in a speech entitled “The Meaning of Masonry,” Pike stated, “There is no….independent and self existent Evil principle in rebellion against God….Evil is merely apparent; and all is in reality good and perfect.”[13] In 1871, Pike published Morals and Dogma, detailing aspects of Masonry in which he revealed the true goal of Masonry:

Masonry is a search after light: the search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabalah….Kabalah alone consecrates the alliance of the Universal Reason and the Divine Word….Everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all Illuminati… is borrowed from the Kabalah; all Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols…. Liberty of thought, Equality of all men in the eye of God, universal fraternity! A new doctrine, a new religion; the old primitive truth uttered once again… For the initiates, this [the devil] is not a person but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will…. Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not… Masonry is a worship… Every Masonic lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion …. The world will soon come to us for its Sovereigns and Pontiffs. We shall constitute the equilibrium of the universe, and be rulers over the masters of the world.[14]

Masonry is basically another form of satan worship in which the devotee tries to become an “illumined one,” where satan is a force that can be used for good or evil. But remember Pike’s first comment. “Evil is merely apparent; and all is in reality good and perfect.” Thus, if you combine the two, then in Masonry thinking, satan becomes a force for good and only apparent evil, which in reality is good and perfect. We know different, but that is what Masonry doctrine teaches. Notice also that this article brings out the meaning of the word “Illuminati”; it is those who have searched after the “light,” which is satan, and have found it. Thus, Masons can be considered to be “Illuminati.” In fact a group in Paris originally called Illuminati changed their name to Adepts in 1772 and then Freemasons in 1778.

Deceitful Takeover
The Illuminati have a plan to take over the world, and they have been methodically following their plan. Their plan, involving America as a key player, was first conceived on May 1, 1776.[15]

I was reminded of a similar occasion when five men went into a cave near Ingolstadt, Bavaria, on May 1st, 1776. It was Dr. Adam Weishaupt, who with four other men, met in the cave at the behest of the Rothschild banking cartel to bring forth a conspiratorial plan to take over the world and present it one day to their god Lucifer. In that cave, these five men consulted with an invisible force that they called the controlling unknown. This “force” gave them the plan to recruit members of their new organization, which would become known as the Illuminati. They would conceal themselves by hiding in the high levels of the Masonic Lodge until they could foment revolutions and three world wars until their objective was achieved.[16]

George Washington, in a letter in which he wrote to Reverend G. W. Snyder in 1798, acknowledged the Illuminati plan and their connection with Free Masonry.

Mount Vernon, September 25, 1798.

Sir: Many apologies are due to you, for my not acknowledging the receipt of your obliging favour of the 22d. Ulto, and for not thanking you, at an earlier period, for the Book you had the goodness to send me.

I have heard much of the nefarious, and dangerous plan, and doctrines of the Illuminati, but never saw the Book until you were pleased to send it to me. The same causes which have prevented my acknowledging the receipt of your letter have prevented my reading the Book, hitherto; namely, the multiplicity of matters which pressed upon me before, and the debilitated state in which I was left after, a severe fever had been removed. And which allows me to add little more now, than thanks for your kind wishes and favourable sentiments, except to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years. I believe notwithstanding, that none of the Lodges in this Country are contaminated with the principles ascribed to the Society of the Illuminati.

With respect I am &c

George Washington
[17]

I have heard much of the nefarious and dangerous plan and doctrines of the Illuminati. It was not my intention to doubt the doctrines of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.
—George Washington, The Writings of George Washington


It was even reported that John F Kennedy was going to expose the Illuminati plan and was assassinated for it.[18]

Unfortunately, Illuminati have used America in the past and will use her in the future to play a large role in bringing about the New World order. Want some evidence? Take a look at the back of a dollar bill. In the two circles are depicted both sides of The Great Seal. The pyramid is on one side of the Great Seal and the eagle on the other. The great seal is used to authenticate official U.S. documents.

end times, Bible, prophecy, great seal, united states, new world order, washington, illuminati, america, revelation, beast, antichrist, 1110, 2012, 666

Ever wonder what these symbols mean? The Cutting Edge has analyzed these mysterious symbols and what they reveal.

The Pyramid represents the past. Note that the capstone of this pyramid is not in place, thus denoting an unfinished situation. This unfinished situation was planned to remain in effect until the Old World Order was destroyed and replaced with The New World Order.

1. Annuit Coeptis - “Announcing The Birth”
2. Novus Ordor Seclorum - “New World Order”
3. Capstone - Eye of Horus [Theocracy of Egyptian Mysticism] = Eye of satan or Lucifer
4. MDCCLXXVI on the bottom layer of stones = 1776 [May 1, Beltaine, Second High-Holy Day of the Year] On May 1, 1776, a New World Order was born when the Masters of the Illuminati was founded, whose foundation would be built upon depravity and rebellion. Its leader would be satan.
5. Thirteen Layers to the Pyramid = The number, ‘13’ is the occult number of Depravity and Rebellion.
[19]

Here is another quote that not only brings out the meaning of the pyramid side of the seal but also the other side.

This is the Illuminati’s pyramid symbol. There are “13” stacks of bricks on the ‘all seeing eye’ pyramid. The official national seal of the United States contains “13” arrows, “ 13” letters, “13” laurel leaves, “ 13” berries, “ 13” stars above the eagle in the form of a hexagram, “13” stripes on the shield. The “ 9” tail feathers indicate the “9” additional degrees of the York Rite of Freemasonry. Then the American eagle with 32 feathers on one wing and “33” on the other. There are “33” steps on the side of the pyramid representing the “33” degrees of Freemasonry.[20]

Here is what Alice Bailey who was the head of the House of Theosophy for many years and who’s husband was a 33rd degree Mason said about the “all seeing eye” of satan depicted on the dollar bill.

The Masonic movement …is the home of the Mysteries, and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Diety, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. The methods of Diety are demonstrated in its Temples, and under the All-seeing Eye the work can go forward. It is a far more occult organization than can be realized, and it is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists.[21]

The seal also has a link to the coming third temple.

We correctly link the symbolism of the All-Seeing Eye of Lucifer hovering over the unfinished pyramid on the back of the Dollar Bill to the coming prophesied Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem! The Masons have been steadfastly determined since 1782 to seize control of the Temple Mount so they could resurrect Solomon's Temple for use by their Masonic Christ!

Since this was the plan in 1782 when the Seals were created, the Masons made sure that the symbolism of the unfinished pyramid directly tied into their plan to rebuild Solomon's Temple. When the Masonic Christ (Antichrist) is planned to be the "Living Stone" to top off the unfinished pyramid!
[22]

So we can see that the symbol on the back of a dollar bill is an Illuminati symbol depicting the forthcoming New World Order, implying that America will play a large role in its formation. There are some “official” explanations concerning the meaning of the symbols on the Great Seal, but these are merely attempts to mask their true meaning.

Notice what happens when you draw a six-pointed star as depicted below. The points of the star point to the letters “MASON.” Is that by coincidence or design? I have calculated the odds that the six points align with the letters “MASON” to be at least 380,000 to one.

end times, Bible, prophecy, great seal, united states, new world order, washington, illuminati, america, revelation, beast, antichrist, 1110, 2012, 666
It is also interesting to note that if you take the date of 1776 that appears in Roman numerals across the bottom of the pyramid as “MDCCLXXVI” and place each letter at the vertices of three successive triangles some interesting numbers appear.

end times, Bible, prophecy, great seal, united states, new world order, washington, illuminati, america, revelation, beast, antichrist, 1110, 2012, 666

This may be pure coincidence, or it may be some veiled Illuminati message giving some information about the antichrist and or the establishment of the NWO. We know that 666 is the number of the antichrist, I can only speculate as to what the 1110 means, but it may be in reference to the timing of WWIII, which we will discuss later in this chapter. It is interesting to note that in Babylon, they used a sexagesimal number system, and converting 1110 from a sexagesimal into a centesimal system, we get 1110 x 0.60 = 666.[23]

The History of the Seal
The history of the seal is equally interesting and shows an Illuminati connection:

Even though it was officially voted into creation by a meeting of Freemason Continental Congressmen in 1782, the symbol was hidden from public view for fear the American people would recognize it as being the satanic symbol it truly was.

However, in 1935, the Guiding Spirit of President Roosevelt and Agriculture Secretary Wallace told them the time had arrived to put this symbol on the back of the One Dollar Silver Certificate, for the people had moved far, far away from their Christian roots and awareness of both the Bible and the “wiles” and “strategies” of satan
.[24]

Henry Wallace, a friend of President Roosevelt, was also a prominent Freemason, and in 1934, he wrote about the significance of the Great Seal.

It will take a more definite recognition of the Grand Architect of the Universe before the apex stone [capstone of the pyramid] is finally fitted into place and this nation in the full strength of its power is in position to assume leadership among the nations in inaugurating ‘the New Order of the Ages.’[25]

Not only is the great seal a symbol that links America to the Illuminati[26], but so is the architectural design of Washington D.C. We will not delve into that topic here, but here is the link to a Web site that expounds upon that topic.[27]

Thus from the above discussion, and realizing that America is the most powerful nation in the world, it is obvious that America will play a large role in bringing about the New World Order and “finishing the pyramid.”

Writing about the coming NWO takeover of the United States, one Illuminati defector has indicated that each region of the United States has a designated “nerve center” or power base for regional activity. Each region has military compounds and bases hidden in remote, isolated areas or on large private estates used to train Illuminati in military techniques, hand-to-hand combat, crowd control, use of arms, and other aspects of military warfare. These are seen as necessary because the Illuminists believe that our government, as we know it, as well as the governments of most nations around the world, are destined to collapse. These will be planned collapses, and they will occur in the following ways:

The Illuminati has planned first for a financial collapse that will make the great depression look like a picnic. This will occur through the maneuvering of the great banks and financial institutions of the world, through stock manipulation, and interest rate changes. Most people will be indebted to the federal government through bank and credit card debt, etc. The governments will recall all debts immediately, but most people will be unable to pay and will be bankrupted. This will cause generalized financial panic, which will occur simultaneously worldwide, as the Illuminists firmly believe in controlling people through finances….

Next there will be a military takeover, region by region, as the government declares a state of emergency and martial law. People will have panicked, there will be an anarchical state in most localities, and the government will justify its move as being necessary to control panicked citizens. The cult trained military leaders and people under their direction will use arms as well as crowd control techniques to implement this new state of affairs. ...Military bases will be set up, in each locality (actually, they are already here, but are covert). In the next few years, they will go above ground and be revealed. Each locality will have regional bases and leaders to which they are accountable. The hierarchy will closely reflect the current covert hierarchy.
[28]

Just recently a top Russian economic scholar predicted that the U.S. will break up into 6 regions.[29] They are even starting to prep our military to see who may or may not go along with this plan. Some military personnel have recently been given a questionnaire that included some very interesting questions.

One of the subscribers to this newsletter recently sent me a questionnaire that was administered to him by a female brigadier general at Camp Lejuene. There were a total of 46 questions with four possible answers to each one: strongly disagree, disagree, strongly agree, and no opinion. Item number 45 reads as follows: “I would swear to the following code: I am an United Nations fighting person. I serve in the forces which maintain world peace and every nation’s way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.” Item number 46 says: “The U.S. Government declares a ban on the possession, sale, transportation, and transfer of all non-sporting firearms. A thirty (30) day amnesty period is permitted for these firearms to be turned over to local authorities. At the end of this period, a number of citizen groups refuse to turn over their firearms. Consider the following statement: I would fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. government.[30]

The Larger Scheme
The New World Order will be a global effort; America will only play a part in this diabolical scheme. In the coming New World Order, the Illuminati plan and scripture indicates that the world will be divided up into 10 “spheres of influence.” These 10 planned spheres of influence or super nation states are as follows:

1. North America
2. Western Europe
3. Japan
4. Australia, South Africa, and the rest of the market economy of the developed world.
5. Eastern Europe, including Russia
6. Latin America
7. North Africa and the Middle East
8. Tropical Africa
9. South and Southeast Asia
10. China
[31]

Some of these “super states” already exist and some are in the process of being formed. With the formation of NAFTA, the planned building of a U.S./Canadian/Mexican highway,[32] the planned Amero,[33] and the linking of the U.S. and Canadian armies,[34] super nation #1 is beginning to be formed. I believe that these 10 super nation states are what the ten horns represent in the vision given to Daniel and John.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. (Dan 7:7,8)

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (Rev. 13:1)

I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns… And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns….And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast….And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. (Rev. 17:3-18)

In the latter vision, the whore riding upon the beast represents America/Babylon symbolically. The beast represents the seventh world kingdom, the New World Order. The ten horns represent the 10 “super nation” states that the world will be divided up into as indicated above. America will be the leading/controlling nation, the 10 spheres of influence under the leadership of the antichrist will eventually turn against America and “burn her with fire” and give the kingdom over to the antichrist. This is also reflected in the Daniel passage where it indicates that the “little horn” will “pluck up” three of the horns or will destroy three super nation states.

Why will the NWO turn against America, the very country that was so instrumental in bringing the NWO about? Here is what white magic occultist David Icke said about that.

The United States may be the world superpower today and that’s precisely what the Illuminati planned for it to be in the agenda for the centralization of global control….

But while America is being used now as the vehicle to impose this current stage of the fascist agenda it is not meant to continue as the superpower. In fact, destroying that status and breaking the spirit of America is fundamental in the installation of the Illuminati global dictatorship.

The reason is this: a world government (dictatorship) and a superpower do not go together. The Illuminati dictatorship is meant to be the only superpower and for that to happen the United States must be brought into line
.[35]

This is typical of how satan works. He will come to someone and promise them and give them all kinds of things, use them to do his will, and then destroy them.

For any Illuminati or occultists who may be reading this book, let me set the record straight. satan was never equal with God. He was created as the greatest angel, he chose to rebel against God, was defeated and will eventually be locked up in Hell forever. The devil knows this, and he hates God and hates all men because they are made in God’s image. His objective is to take as many people to Hell with him as possible, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Hell is a place of burning and torment that will last forever, there will be no “partying” there as satan has told some of his followers. If you have fallen prey to the devil’s deception, flee from him and fall on your knees before God and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior before it is too late. No one is too sinful to receive the love and forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ. “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

How Will the Plan Unfold?
How will the culmination of this plan produce the New World Order with the antichrist as the world ruler? The framework of this plan was given to Albert Pike on January 22, 1870. This plan was kept secret for many years, but was revealed by former Illuminati, Doc Marquis, in his book Secrets of the Illuminati. Marquis tells us that Pike received this plan from a “guiding spirit.” In other words, he received this plan for the establishment of the New World Order from satan or one of his demons. The major components of the plan entailed the fighting of three world wars.
The First World War was designed to overthrow czarist Russia and establish communism.[36] The Second World War was to be started by Britain and Germany and had as its eventual goal the strengthening of Russia into a superpower.[37] As we know from history, both objectives were fulfilled. Officially, some claim Pike’s letter is a fake. However the contents of the letter were revealed to the public just after WWI, and the fact that WWII fulfilled the plan in the letter is proof that it is authentic.

The Iraq War is also a part of this takeover plan and will help shift control of world affairs to the U.N. and eventually the NWO, as detailed by David Bay of Cutting Edge:

Since the Illuminati had first planned for the Iraqi invasion by American troops in 1952 {Former satanist Bill Schnoebelen}, we can only conclude that this detailed plan may provide for the gradual political disaster of both Blair and Bush. As we have stated many times before, if Bush is wondrously successful in his invasion of Iraq, with no significant political fallout, the world will see that his defiance of the United Nations — his exercise of National Sovereignty — was clearly the plan of action that needed to have been taken. At this point, the carefully crafted image of the U.N. as an indispensable world body will shatter, possibly never to recover again. However, the Illuminati fought World Wars I and II for the express purpose of establishing a world government that one day will possess real teeth and be able to force individual governments to do its bidding. The Illuminati cannot have the U.N. to shatter, and Bush is no “loose cannon.” Therefore, the end result must be that Bush’s exercise of National Sovereignty will finally be shown as an unmitigated disaster, while the temperate position of the U.N. must be shown to be the way in which the world must be governed from this point forward.[38]

The Third World War is supposed to be triggered by war between Judaism and Islam and will eventually spread to the whole world. Listen to what Albert Pike said about WWIII:

The third World War must be formented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’ of the ‘Illuminati’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on the issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity…will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in public view.[39]

Another illuminati writer, H.G. Wells, has further detailed that WWIII will start from an event that occurs in Basra. He was given this information from a demonic Guiding Spirit in 1933 in which he wrote about in his book entitled, "The Shape of Things To Come."

"…the plan for the 'Modern World-State' (New World Order) would succeed in its third attempt (WWIII) and would come out of something that would occur in Basra, Iraq."

In light of their plans we can see that WWIII will probably be triggered by the Middle East conflict and in light of the planned destruction will involve nuclear weapons. Although there are too many details to go into here, what readers should take from this is that satan has planned three world wars to establish the New World Order. Their plan also calls for the possibility of using nuclear weapons to kill many people “... a very short but very deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations was contemplated and to tell you the truth, was not ruled out ...”[40]

The ultimate goal of WWIII is to usher in the New World Order with the antichrist as the ruler of the world. According to former Illuminati satanist, Doc Marquis, once World War III begins the antichrist will arise on the world scene in 13 weeks (91 days). Here is another interesting tidbit; The book Atlas Shrugged is reported to be an illuminati fictional novel which portrays their plan to take over the world written in code. The timetable presented in the book ends with this “When the lights of New York City go out for the last time, we will have the World!" WWIII could be the event to turn the lights off in NYC for it would surely be a target of such an attack.

Tying It Back to the Seals
Some think that this Illuminati-planned WWIII will occur after the Abomination of Desolation and before the rapture at the sixth seal. There are several verses which lead me to a different conclusion. I believe that WWIII will start before the Abomination of Desolation. Look at Matt. 24:4-9:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Notice the timing of events in this passage: deception, wars, and rumors of wars with nation arising against nation and kingdom against kingdom, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes. I believe the nation arising against nation and kingdom against kingdom is in reference to WWIII. All these events are called “the beginning of sorrows.” Then, after these sorrows, the persecution of believers occurs. As we mentioned before, the chronological order of these events mirrors the events listed in the first five seals. Thus this passage places the great wars of nation arising against nation and kingdom arising against kingdom before the persecution of believers (Seal 5) and the pestilences and famines (Seal 3). Thus, the great wars listed here would either have to occur during Seal 1 or 2. Thus, I conjecture that the nation arising against nation and kingdom arising against kingdom is the Illuminati planned WWIII and will start during Seal 1 or 2, probably seal 2.[41]

God commands Israel to flee into the wilderness when she is surrounded by armies, and at the Abomination of Desolation. The fact that they are told to flee at these two events infers that the events occur at the same time.

When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: (Matt. 24:15,16)

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)

This military takeover by the antichrist will leave Israel ravished.

War of Gog-Magog
There is another end-times war we need to examine. This war, recorded in Ezekiel 38–39 and other parts of scripture, is often called the War of Gog-Magog. In this war, the nations identified as Gog and Magog will attempt destroy Israel and will suffer a terrible defeat. The identity of these nations is debated, and ranges from Northern Egypt and Libya to Russia, but the consensus seems to be that this will be a Muslim/Russian attack against Israel.

When will this war take place? This war will most likely start after the antichrist takes over the world and will be a reigniting of WWIII after the false peace of the antichrist breaks down. There are several verses in Ezekiel that show that the final destruction of this war will occur on the day of the Lord. Ezekiel 38:18-20, for example, says that on the day of the destruction of Gog and Magog, there will be a great shaking in all the earth.

And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel. So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

This great earthquake coincides precisely with one of the events of the sixth seal and the Day of the Lord. “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” (Rev. 6:12). The passage goes on to further describe this earthquake, which is so severe that all the mountains and islands are moved out of their places. This coordinates precisely with the Ezekiel passage above that says “and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”

There is another event listed in Ezekiel concerning the Gog – Magog war that shows that this war culminates with the Day of the Lord event. Consider this verse from Eze. 39:4: “Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.” This passage tells us that “ravenous birds of every sort” will eat the defeated armies of the Gog-Magog war. Where else do we see birds eating the flesh of dead bodies? Jesus spoke about it in Luke 17:34-37 and Matt 24:25-28 in connection with the rapture:

I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

The three passages above describing the birds eating the flesh of dead bodies links the end of the Gog – Magog war, the rapture, and the Day of the Lord all together. Thus, after the antichrist takes control of the world and begins ruling from Jerusalem, WWIII will be reignited and he will be involved in a great war that will leave his enemies totally defeated. This is how the people on earth respond to his victory. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Rev. 13:4) As already discussed his defeat over these nations is probably recorded in scripture as the three horns that will be plucked up. This is most likely when America/Babylon will also suffer her first destruction. Revelation 17:16 gives us some very pertinent information about this. “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” This passage tells us that the whore (end-times Babylon as identified in Rev. 17:5) is destroyed by the 10 horns, or the 10 spheres of influence of the New World Order. These 10 spheres of influence have to be established, and in power when the destruction takes place.
Here are some more verses that help us narrow down the timing of the destruction of end-times Babylon.

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. (Rev. 17:6)

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Rev. 18:24)

These verses tell us that one of the reasons that end-times Babylon is destroyed is because it is guilty of causing the persecution and martyrdom of believers. The worldwide persecution and martyrdom of believers starts after the opening of the fifth seal. “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” (Rev. 7:10) Thus, these verses suggest that end-times Babylon will be destroyed after the fifth seal begins. Jeremiah 50:13 gives us another clue as to the timing of the destruction of America.

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. 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.

These verses tell us that the destruction of end times Babylon will occur as part of the wrath of God. Jeremiah 51, a chapter regarding the destruction of end-times Babylon, tells us that one of the reasons that end times Babylon is destroyed is because strangers have entered the sanctuary, even the most holy place. “We are confounded, because we have heard reproach: shame hath covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the Lord's house.” (Jer 51:51) Of course we know that will happen at the Abomination of Desolation. Thus this places the destruction of America to occur after the Abomination of Desolation. Isaiah 13 narrows the timing down farther and shows us that the destruction to end times Babylon will occur after the opening of the sixth seal.

The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see…They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger… And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and Satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

Putting all of these verses together tell us that the destruction of end-times Babylon will occur after the Abomination of Desolation, after the sixth seal is opened, and as part of the wrath of God. We know that God’s wrath starts after the rapture at the Day of the Lord. Therefore we can place the destruction of end-times Babylon/America to occur after the rapture. It is possible that this destruction occurs at the same time that Gog and Magog are destroyed.
Another interesting verse that we should consider, which may connect the Gog-Magog war with the destruction of end-times Babylon, is Eze. 39:6. It says: “And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.” This verse indicates that God will not only allow Gog and Magog to be destroyed by fire, but also those that dwell carelessly in the isles.

Isaiah 47:1-9 also talks about the destruction to end-times Babylon and makes the connection with the “careless dwellers.”

Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate…for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms…And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it. Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

This passage refers to the inhabitants of end-times Babylon as those “that dwell carelessly.” This may connect the destruction that end-times Babylon/America will receive after the rapture, with the Gog/Magog war.

Putting It All Together
Let’s put all the pieces of the puzzle together and come up with a comprehensive “most probable” picture of major end times events. The 70th Week of Daniel begins with the signing of the peace treaty. With the opening of the first seal the NWO starts to take over the world, seals 2,3, and 4 unleash war, economic collapse, famine, death, etc. on the world. Sometime during the opening of the first four seals, the illuminati planned WWIII breaks out. The tumultuous Middle East conflict with Iraq as the trigger will get things started and will eventually escalate into an all out world war. As a result of this war, the antichrist comes on the scene bringing peace to the world. (If the Illuminati plan is followed, WWIII will start 1110 days after the beginning of the 70th Week and the antichrist will arise 91 days after the start of WWIII.) He will then perform the Abomination of Desolation, strengthen the 7-year peace treaty that was made with “the many” and convince Jews that he is the messiah that they are looking for. He will then take over the world on day 1260 and institute the mark of the beast, and begin persecuting Jews and Christians. The temporary peace will break down and WWIII will be reignited and the Gog-Magog war will begin. The rapture will occur just prior to the end of this war, which will begin the Day of the Lord period. This war will destroy three of the 10 spheres of influence — namely, Russia and her allies (the king of the North), Egypt and her allies (the king of the South), and America/Babylon. The antichrist will then be the supreme ruler of the world, with no one to stand in the way of his dictatorship. See the chart entitled “The Afflictions of the 70th Week” for a pictorial representation of this data.

I have just come across an interesting article regarding the timing of WWIII. It highlights what a British military insider knows about WWIII. Here are a few excerpts from the article, notice that he says it will start, have a cease fire, then reignite into a massive full nuclear exchange just as I have hypothesized will happen.

There is a planned Third World War, which will be nuclear and biological. Our source believes that this is on track to be initiated within the next 18-24 months.

It is planned to begin with a strike by Israel on Iran. Either Iran or China will be provoked into a nuclear response. After a brief nuclear exchange, there will be a ceasefire. The world will be thrown into fear and chaos - all carefully engineered.

The extreme state of tension will be used to justify heavy social and military controls in all western first world nations. Plans are already in place for that.

During the nuclear ceasefire, there is planned to be a covert release of biological weapons. These will initially be targeted against the Chinese. As our source chillingly told us, "China will catch a cold". Biological warfare will spread further, to the west. Infrastructure will be critically weakened.

This is intended to be just the beginning. After this, a full nuclear exchange would be triggered: the "real" war, with widespread destruction and loss of life. Our source tells us that the planned population reduction through these combined means is 50%. He heard this figure stated in the meeting
.[42]

The military insider also puts a date on this war, when asked when this would transpire he said “around 2012, sometime in that year.” If that statement is true then it would substantiate the timing of the 70th week and WWIII as I have hypothesized. [43]

Knowing that WWIII may shortly come to pass should you flee? There are two places mentioned in end-times biblical prophecy in which God tells people to leave; end-times Babylon and Judea:

Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. (Jer. 51:6)

We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies. (Jer. 51:9)

My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord. (Jer. 51:45)

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev. 18:4)

When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains. (Mt 24:15,16)

God commands His people to leave end-times Babylon and Judea. If our timing of the destruction of end times Babylon is correct, then Christians will be raptured when this occurs. Therefore this verse is in reference to Jews and does not apply to Christians. The other place God tells people to flee is Judea. In the Mt. 24 passage above God tells the Jews to flee to the wilderness when the Abomination of Desolation occurs. This is when they are commanded to flee into the wilderness for 3.5 years while the gentiles, under the leadership of the antichrist, will be in control of Jerusalem. So if my analysis is correct concerning the timing of the Gog-Magog war and the destruction of America — that they will both occur after the Abomination of Desolation — then Jews should not only flee Judea after the Abomination of Desolation, but they should also flee from America. In regards to when and if one should flee we must also consider the second seal which suggests worldwide destruction and will most likely entail the beginning rounds of WWIII. Even though this first round of action in WWIII will not be as catastrophic as the second I would imagine that large population centers would be likely targets and a move to a more rural setting away from the big cities may be prudent.

Concerning the topics of WWIII, the Gog-Magog war, and the destruction of end-times Babylon and associated events: putting them in a timeline has been one of the most challenging things that I have wrestled with so far. There are many theories regarding these future events. Am I confident that I have put all the pieces of this part of the end-times puzzle together correctly? No, I am not, for as scripture says “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1 Cor. 13:12). There will be many events that will come into play during the end-times, to put them all together correctly is a daunting task that has bewildered many a more scholarly man than myself for years. What I have tried to do is take an honest and hard look at what all the scriptures teach—not just a select few—and come up with a scenario in which none of the many scriptures are contradicted. What I have just outlined before you is the result.

Am I confident that there will be a WWIII, Gog-Magog war, and destruction of end-times Babylon? Yes, I am. And with all of the recent events transpiring in the Middle East, and the world, it is not hard to imagine how the present hostilities could escalate into these prophesied wars especially if you take into account that it is looking like the ongoing Middle East conflict may soon involve nuclear weapons. In fact, the peace treaty of prophecy, the treaty of death that will divide the land, may be a prerequisite to start these wars. The “Road Map” proposed by President Bush calls for Israel retreat to its 1949 Armistice borders and to have the land for the Palestinians be “contiguous,” which would effectively divide Israel into two sections.

Consider what a Cutting Edge has to say about this initiative.

Once the IDF repositions its forces as this plan dictates, the nation of Israel becomes a series of separated enclaves, and that is a military tactician’s nightmare. Arafat’s Palestinian paramilitary forces could attack key targets from within, forcing the IDF to fight in separated locations. Syria and Egypt would also be tempted to jump into the fray to take advantage of this unbelievable Israeli self-inflicted wound.[44]

Once Israel retreats to its 1949 borders and is divided, it will be very vulnerable to attack. Sometime after that is when the Muslim world, in accordance with Illuminati plans, will attack. Then, in response, Israel will retaliate with nuclear weapons, decimating the Arabs.

Scriptures mention one such outcome of this attack in Jer. 49:24: “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” Damascus is the oldest city still in existence. But as the result of this future war, it will be a ruinous heap, which is indicative of a nuclear attack. This verse clearly establishes the fact that several passages in Jeremiah are in reference to end-times events, because Damascus is still in existence today and has never been a “ruinous heap” in it’s history. So the peace treaty may serve to set the stage for these wars including WWIII, which according to the Illuminati plan will usher in the antichrist.

The One World Religion
Not only is there a plan to produce a one-world government with the antichrist as the leader, but there is also a plan to produce a one-world religion. This plan, as heralded by the Illuminati, is entitled the New Jerusalem Covenant project. Bill Lambert, director of the New England House of Theosophy, presented this plan in August of 1991. A Cutting Edge News writer took notes on his speech. Here are some excerpts from his notes:

Step one – Three global conferences must be held in order to give birth to the New World Order system.

Step two – General fear of war needed to be instituted and maintained in order to provide the pressure needed to move the parties into this plan.

Step three – International control over Jerusalem Religious areas and subsequent combined worship center for Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Step four – Roman Catholic Pope travels to Jerusalem to dedicate this new worship center, proclaiming that all religions of the world are now one. He is their head and the New World order religion is now official.

Step five – Antichrist will come to the world scene, after the world war has been fought to produce him.
[45]

The three global conferences were held in August/September of 2000. These conferences consisted of a Global religious conference, a Global business meeting and a global political conference. The illuminati looked upon these conferences as birthing ceremonies for their New World Order.[46][47] The general fear of war, as outlined in step 2, has been maintained for a long time in the Middle East. Step 3 was shockingly proposed by Shimon Peres in 2003, and is also backed by the Pope. The pope also backs step 4, in fact in the Pope’s 2004 new years address, he called for a one-world religion. As of now steps 3 – 5 are yet to be fulfilled. We will have to wait and see when they come about. So not only do the illuminati have a plan to take over the world but they also have a plan to establish a one-world religion with the pope as the head.

The Proof is in the Cards
We have discussed several aspects of the plan of the Illuminati to take over the world and usher in the antichrist as their leader. Their plans have helped us to gain insight into formulating a proper chronological scenario and understanding of prophetic events listed in scripture. We have also examined several events that will transpire during the antichrist’s reign and we have seen that he and his kingdom will come to swift and decisive end. As you see the ultimate goal of their plan is to create a situation in which the world will readily accept the antichrist as the world ruler. After the decimation brought to the world — unleashed in the first 5 seals — through the power of satan and his evil cohorts, the world will be ready for a solution. They will be ready for someone to bring peace to a war torn world, for someone to restore the economy, for someone to put food back on the table. The antichrist will present himself as the savior, the messiah. Unfortunately, the world will be lured into his trap.

Many readers may think this is a fantastic scenario, but unlikely to occur. I want to present one last piece of evidence I hope will get your attention. In 1990, game inventor Steve Jackson of S. J. Games started working on an Illuminati role playing card game called “Illuminati – New World Order.” This card game details events that the Illuminati want to bring about in order to establish the New World Order. He revised and published the game in 1995. White magic occultist David Icke has pulled out the most pertinent nine of the 100 cards in the game to tell the story, which was on his web site, for many years. Below is a description of those cards. Go to http://www.thecomingepiphany.com/BookArticles/Cardgame.html to view the cards as they appeared on his website.

Rewriting History: The first card depicts academic books being thrown in a trashcan. It represents the use of the public school system by the Illuminati to weaken and control people through false teachings such as evolution, abortion, acceptance of gay lifestyles, and so on.

Terrorist Nuke: This card depicts one of the World Trade Center buildings being destroyed by an explosion in the exact spot that one of the planes hit. The image on the card is an unmistakable representation of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.

Pentagon: This card depicts the Pentagon on fire. It represents and was fulfilled on the 9/11 attack of the Pentagon.

Note: The three cards thus chosen by David Icke have been fulfilled and in the exact order as depicted.

Population Reduction: This card depicts a picture of New York City with black smoke over the whole city in the shape of a skull. It is a representation of one of the goals of the Illuminati, to reduce the population of the earth. They feel that there are too many people and want to clear the globe of the excess. They will accomplish this through wars, famine, pestilence, and terrorist actions.

Center for Disease Control: This card depicts a scientist creating viruses. It represents the notion that the CDC will be used in the future to inflict diseases upon a people group or the world.

Epidemic: This card depicts a pile of dead bodies, blackened from death, and some medical paraphernalia such as gloves and a mask. The word Quarantine is written over the picture. It represents plagues that the New World order will use to lessen the population.

Combined Disasters: This card depicts people running in fear due to buildings falling down around them. It represents the fact that they will combine several disasters at the same time to invoke great fear and thus create an atmosphere conducive for the acceptance of antichrist.

Goal: Kill for Peace: This card depicts hippies, one holding a peace sign, standing over a policeman, who is on all fours in a begging position. The Hippies are poised and ready to kill him. It represents the killing “for peace” that will happen to people who will not go along with the New World Order and its plans—namely, Christians and Jews. A peace sign is an upside down broken cross and also speaks of the destruction of Christianity and its followers at this time.

Tape Runs Out: This card depicts a reel-to-reel audiotape machine with the tape running out. Behind it is a picture of the world being split in half. Under the picture is written; “When the rapture comes…” This card represents the Day of the Lord and rapture of the church.

The order of these cards as presented by David Icke is very interesting. Cards 1-3 have already been fulfilled, and in the exact order as depicted. Cards 4-8 parallel very closely the first five seals as recorded in Revelation. Seals 1-4, as we have already discussed, foretell war, famines, economic collapse, diseases, and so on, and parallels cards 4-7. The fifth seal involves the persecution of Jews and Christians, which parallels card 8. The last card in his list is the rapture. Note that he has placed the rapture occurring last in all these cards and immediately following the card that depicts the “killing for peace” initiative. This is exactly the order that the Bible gives us — the rapture after the first five seals. The existence of these cards should also help prove to you, if you do not believe it yet, that the Illuminati indeed have a plan to take over the world and are in the process of carrying it out.

There are two other noteworthy cards in the deck that I would like to mention. These cards refer to conservative talk show hosts being used by the Illuminati to mislead political conservatives into accepting the Illuminati agenda. These “weapons of mass instruction” give out 98.4% truth and 1.6% error. The problem is that since they give out so much truth, very few are discerning enough to detect the error. It is similar to rat poison: 99% food and 1% poison. This is one way that the Illuminati can get some of their programs such as NAFTA, GATT, Patriot Act I and II, and The Military Commissions Act passed without much conservative opposition. I am not suggesting that all talk show hosts fall into this category, but I admonish you to beware of them. They are smart enough to know about the conspiracy of the Illuminati. If they deny the existence of such a conspiracy, then I believe that it may be a sign that they are part of it. Unfortunately, some are so enamored with these talk show hosts because they promote conservatism that they cannot discern the truth about these individuals.

We have examined some aspects of the plan of the Illuminati to take over control of the world and institute the antichrist as the leader. It is readily seen how some of their plans will be fulfilled because we can see these plans as events foretold in the Bible. Some of their plans that are not foretold by the Bible may or may not come to pass. God is in ultimate control. How much of the plan God allows to occur is yet to be seen.

The knowledge of the illuminati and the NWO may cause you to feel hatred toward government. Scripture tells us that we are not to despise government (2 Pet 2:10). We are to pray for those in authority, even the illuminati, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life (1 Tim 2:1-4). We are also commanded to honor the king, no matter who it is.

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. (1 Pet 2:13-17)

The Christian is commanded to obey the governing authorities (Rom 13:1) no matter how evil; we can only disobey the government when they tell us to do something directly against scripture or they perform an illegal action against us. So do not let the knowledge of these things cause you to hate the government and its leaders. God has allowed them to rule and reign for His purposes. We also need to realize that except for the grace of God “there go I.” Respect, obey, and pray for them. For further discussions on this topic see the article entitled “To Obey or Not to Obey, That is the Question”

The prophetic one world government—The New World Order—is coming and many are working to bring it about. After the opening of the 5th seal, at the direction of the antichrist, the NWO will fiercely oppress and persecute Jews and Christians. Christians must prepare themselves for the troublous times that lie ahead. I hope you do not believe that all this stuff is just “wacko conspiracy theory nonsense.” The evidence says, No!

When we come into our kingdom, our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it, at the end, under our beneficent rule. Who will ever suspect, then, that all these peoples were stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?" [End of Protocol No. 13]
Some even believe we [the Rockefellers] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." (David Rockefeller's Memoirs)

Many world leaders are calling for the formation of a new world order and a new world currency.
In economic and financial desperation, leaders around the globe are openly calling for the creation of a "New World Order," including prominent "old guard" members of the Trilateral Commission. Is the baby about to be born?[48]

A world currency moves nearer after Tim Geithner's slip. US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner confessed on Wednesday that he had not read the plans by China's central bank governor for a "super-sovereign reserve currency" run by the International Monetary Fund, but nevertheless let slip that Washington was "open" to the idea. Whoops.[49]

The New World Order is coming whether you are ready or not! In the next chapter we will turn our attention to the coming leader of the NWO, the soon to be nefarious ruler of the world, the antichrist.

[3] Hitler was an illuminati who masqueraded as a Christian and was part of a satanic group called the Thule Society. Here is what he said: “I got Illumination…from the Freemasons….There is one dangerous element…I have copied from the Freemasons. They form a sort of priestly nobility. They have developed an esoteric doctrine….imparted through the medium of symbols and mysterious rites in degrees of initiation…by working on the imagination through magic and symbols of a cult —all this is the dangerous element that I have taken over. Don’t you see that our party must be of this character?…. An order, the hierarchical Order of a secular priesthood.” (Morals and Dogma. p.60.) Beware of leaders who proclaim to be Christians but their actions speak differently, especially if they have associations with the illuminati or veiled satanic groups and especially if they make statements like “we all worship the same God.” Christians are to obey the government (Rom 13:1) and “honor the king” (I Pet 2:17). But that does not mean that Christians should blindly follow leaders or the government in disobeying the Lord.

[41] Some have cited Luke 21:12-24 as evidence that WWIII occurs after the Abomination of Desolation. One reason that they surmise this is because the passage says; “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.” Thus, they assert that the things mentioned above all happen after Seal 5. If you just take the Luke passage alone, that is a logical conclusion, but taking into account the Matthew and Mark passage, which places the “nation arising against nation” before the Abomination of Desolation, this creates a contradiction. Scripture cannot contradict scripture; thus there has to be another interpretation for the Luke passage. The other interpretation is that the persecution that would happen before all these sorrows is the persecution that the first century Christians endured. Here is what Ryrie has to say about this in his Study Bible. “Luke 21-7 when …will these things happen? There is a dual perspective in Christ’s answer—the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 and the tribulation days just prior to his Second Coming.” So I believe that the persecution that will occur before the great wars mentioned in the Luke passage is in reference to the persecution that the first century Christians endured.

[47] It is interesting to note that a day and a year after the “birthing ceremonies” was the infamous 9/11 tragedy. The time span of “A day and a year” is significant to illuminati. This, among other things, is one of the indications that 9/11 was part of the illuminati plan to establish the NWO.
