The Great Whore of Babylon

 
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
 
 
 
Rev:17: 1: And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3: So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4: And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6: 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.
7: And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8: The beast that thou saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
When we read the Book of Revelation we must understand how and from what perspective it was written. We have all seen books like “Revelation made easy”. Unfortunately that is what the Christian establishment would have you think. This book was not meant for everyone to understand. Yes I know it promises a blessing to who ever shall read it, (Rev.1:3; Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.) but they neglect to point out that it also says to those that keep it. This book is written in a way so as to be sealed to the spiritually blind, or immature. It contains great mysteries and power. If this power got into the hands of the wrong people, it would be like putting an atomic bomb in the hands of a two year old. Heb: 5:14: “But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
 The idea that deep spiritual truth is hidden to some may not be popular, but there is much scriptural basis for this. Lk: 8:10: “And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.” We also see that timing may be a factor in understanding Gods message to us. Dan: 12:4: “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Like now). Paul in 1st Corinthians 12:2 says he was caught up into the third heaven and vs. 4: “How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” He never left the earth, but had entered the spirit. Spiritual things can not always be translated “word for word”.
When John wrote the Apocalypse, he said Rev: 1:10: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,” If he wrote it from the stand point of being in the spirit, does it not make sense to endeavor to understand it form the spirit?
We have heard it said that we have a left side of our brain and a right side (I am not sure which is which) One is more systematic and follows a flow of information, It is structured and ordered. It is where the math is done; sees the “real world” and has to put things into categories, and relates to the material universe, it is the Law. The other side sees images and patterns. It is creative, and sees things in pictures, and cycles. This is the side that sees into the spirit. This is the side that the book of Revelation appeals to. This explains why there seems to be many fulfillments to the verses contained in it. God is creating imagery so you can spot his hand and fulfillment.
Obviously much of its literal fulfillment has taken place with Rome, and Nero; But we see the same patterns like waves continue across the sands of time. Cycles that build until one final culmination. “Like travail upon women with child”
With this in mind, let us look back over history. How long has Satan had his grip and been in control of this world? It has been right since the beginning in the garden. How quickly people forget. God made this whole creation for man, and man gave it over to Satan. As a result all of creation is corruptible, running down and dying (The second law of thermo-dynamics). From that moment on God has been moving us toward His final plan, His Seventh Day, to bring us into His rest. As we look at the cycles and waves, they are not all exactly alike, but we see many of the same pictures. This explains why many believers and the early church would get it wrong as to the end, and the Antichrist. Through out History there have been many Antichrists. 1Jn:2:18: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” We can start out with Pharaoh, the Babylonians, and Alexander the Great.
Antiochus Epiphanies
was the culmination in the Old Testament times. He offered a blood sacrifice of a pig in the Holy of Holies. He was prophesied of in Daniel. Then in New Testament times we have the first appearance in Judas; Most of the Caesars, especially those that fought against Christ, like Nero. Then here in this century many thought Adolph Hitler, was the Antichrist. Although he fulfilled much of what was needed to qualify he was apparently not yet the One. Then on to looking at the chilling possibility in the person of George Walker Busche (original family name spelling six letters in each name 666). Now many look at Barack Obama because of his lies and murders with his drones. If we turn out to be incorrect again, the cycle will swing around again with more and more evil till “That Man of sin be revealed, The Son of Perdition”.
I have given a broad look at history because I want us to see the whole picture. Who and what is “This Great Whore”? She is an image of one ridding on the back of a beast. This beast is full of names of blasphemy or false gods. She is arrayed in wealth with Gold (significant of divine nature) and pearls (from the sea) and precious stones (from the dry land), full of the splendor of this world. We see an image of Grandeur. Like Christ her colors are Red (the color for man, blood) and Purple the color of royalty. Blue by the way is the color for God; it is the color of the heavens. Purple is the combination of blue and red. Christ was the combination of God = blue and Man= red giving us purple; The God Man and Royal King of Kings. It says she is sitting upon many waters. In verse 15, it tells us what those waters are. “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” It is all the people of the world that have and are being oppressed by her ridding on their back. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. The Kings of the Earth represent the political leaders. All the kingdoms of the world and nations and empires have been in bed with their religious systems. They use each other to control the masses. By false promises like the American dream, the deceitfulness of riches and all the other lies that have been told us through the ages they have made the people drunk with her wine. Mk: 4:19: And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
Rev.17: 2. “the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
Again it is important to have this broad look at history because this image does as I will explain. This beast has seven heads. Verse 9; “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10: And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11: And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. Mountains are significant of Kingdoms; the kings mentioned are the representatives of those Kingdoms. The five that had fallen were: 1.Egypt, 2.Assyria, 3.Babylon, 4.Medo-Persia, and 5.Greece. “One is” 6. Rome. And the other had “not yet come” – The American Empire. This nation may have started out benign but it is now going into perdition. It has only been around a short while
as it was written. Then we see the beast that was and is not being the eighth. God says “I am that I am” Satan says “I am that I am not” This eighth is the Antichrist system that fills the whole earth. It is of the seven because it grew out of them, headed by the same kinds of Antichrists. Capitalism and its money system as debt, has now filled the whole Earth and enslaved it.
A few summers ago I had the privilege of taking a trip to some of the great cities of Europe. We went to London and saw the Palace of the Queen with all its might. How ironic that right in front in the park was a poor young homeless man. Then we went on to Paris; More amazing and dazzling splendor. The Louvre and Versailles full of their treasures and mixture of Christian and Pagan occult symbolism. Next stop; Rome, The Empire and the Coliseum. The Vatican with the most incredible splendor of all. You go inside and the glint of gold is everywhere. Wealth and riches beyond your wildest dreams. And as I was awe struck the Word of the Lord came to me Rev.17:6: “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. 7: And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?” So remarkable where the wonders of this Great Whore, that even John marveled. When the kings of France so abused the people, they rose up and cut off their heads. These blind guides in the Vatican hide behind God.
A
ll this wealth and power and massive edifices are all designed to intimidate and control people and blind them from the truth; to make the masses drunk with the wine of her delicacies. Everywhere we went, we saw Church after Church, and where there was a Dome there was also an Obelisk; Symbols of pagan deity worship. The Oblisk is the male symbol for Osiris and the Dome is the egg or womb symbol for Isis. You see the same picture right in Washington DC on the Mall, Congress on one end and the Washington Monument at the other end; all part of the ancient Mystery religions and their fertility cult of Male / Female. This is no coincidence. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the devil, Lk: 4:5: “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him ALL the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time (including today’s). 6: And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it
. 7: If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine”. Jesus didn’t disagree that it was Satan’s to give, but he knew Mt: 16:26: “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” So his answer was Lk: 4:8: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” This is all about building the Kingdoms of this world on the backs of the poor. It is about the worship of Mammon the God of this age at the cost of the blood sweat and tears of those that are simple.  If Satan owned this present world and Jesus called him “the prince of this world”Jn.12:31 and Paul called him the “god of this world” and said that he “had blinded the minds of men” 2Cor:4:4 How foolish are to think that he would not have gone after our religious systems.
Think about all the atrocities that have been committed through the ages in the name of Religion and Political Ideologies; All proclaiming a just and true cause; Everything from the Crusades and the Inquisitions to the fight for Democracy or Communism. Think of the suffering, starvation and despair of the dark ages. These all made richer the money changers while the saints bleed in the streets. They kept back the word of God and taught that only the Priests were able to talk to God; Thus developing a kind of Illuminati or Illuminated class. They had a MYSTERY which they kept from the common man. The common people were kept in their place by the use of guilt, keeping them bound up worrying about their sexual desires; while the elites were committing every kind of sexual atrocities imaginable. Several Popes were known to have kept young boys and would simply burry them when they were through with them. Mt: 23:27: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.” They are still indulging themselves in the fat and luxuries of this world. When the new Nazi Pope was negotiated into power by George Bush, (Kings fornicating with the Whore) I would watch the Cardinals getting out of their big limos dressed in Scarlet and Purple and gold and precious stones. Then a servant would run up with an umbrella to protect His tenderness from the terrible rays of the SON. I thought to my self, “Who does she think she is? Michael Jackson?”
At the time Jesus came, the Jewish hierarchy were living well and mixing there business practices with there religion. When they unearthed the home of Caiaphas the high priest, it was clear that he was a rich man. The reason the Jews rejected Christ the first time was because he didn’t come to do their bidding. (as a note, it was not the common Jews that rejected Him, many of the early church were Jews. It was the Jewish establishment.) They wanted Him to “Restore the Kingdom to Israel” or return to the status quoi and there ruling order. They didn’t really care what He was preaching or doing, as far as they were concerned He was just a nuisance. But when He messed with their money and overturned the money changers tables, they were threatened. This is when they wanted Him killed. You should all view the film called the “Money Masters”. So who is this Great Whore of Babylon? I have taught in other essays, all the religions of the world have their roots in Babylon. Beginning with Nimrod the founder and king of Babylon and his wife Samiramis and the Son Tammuz. When God scattered the languages and tongues, these same Demi-gods most likely the off spring of the Fallen Angles; Nephilim, became known by other names. They were Osiris, Isis, and Horus; Coronus, Rhea, and Zeus; And Baal, Moloch, Dianna, Artemis, Aphrodite, Apollo, and many others. Here are some goddesses that are of interest to America.
Lady Liberty, know as Libertas by the Romans and the same as Ishtar (where we get our word Ester from with its fertility cult symbols like eggs and bunnies). She was a rich persons goddess, she didn't mean freedom from oppression, like we commonly think, but freedom to oppress. Freedom to do as you please. Columbia is another goddess and sits atop of the Capitol building (origin of the word Capitol from Merriam-Webster Latin; Capitolium Temple of Jupiter at Rome). This is why she is the Mother of Harlots. She is ALL of the organized religions of this world. She is Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, The Roman Catholic church, The right wing fundamentalist, Denominationalism and Zionists; She is the cults and Isms; She is the Secret societies and Black Arts; She is the Idols and Demon Gods from ancient times that keep coming back riding on the back of the worlds political systems. The two give power to each other. They are in bed together committing fornication. They are not flesh and blood but powers and principalities the rulers of the darkness of this world; they are spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph:6:12. True faith is not a religion or organization but a relationship with the true and living God, and His truth is revealed in His Word, we call the Bible.
We now see the whole earth subdued by this Whore and consuming the world recourses. The blind masses worshiping at the alter of consumerism putting themselves further and further into enslavement; being bound to the love of this world Lusting for Oil to drive her machines. Rv:9:2: “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”(air pollution which is a result of the machines that burn this oil as man continues to think himself to be god)
I know that some will think me a crazy person after reading this. But: 2Tm:1:7: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
1Cor:2:14: “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” We have come to think it is normal and the way it should be for our families to be scattered all over the place “without natural affection” to serve this Industrial Military Complex. Rv: 6:10: “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?” Rv: 18:4: 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.” 1Pt:2:9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”

The Truth About The Rapture

original art, click on to see larger

The doctrine we call the “Rapture” first began to be spread less than 200 years ago. This “Rapture" heresy as we know it today had its origin with a Catholic Jesuit Priest named Lacunza. His writings were translated into English by a Reverend Edward Irving. It was a few years later in March,1830, that a 15-year-old Scottish girl named Miss Margaret MacDonald had an ecstatic vision, while sitting at one of Reverend Irving’s prophetic services. She prophesied in detail all about this secret pre-tribulation rapture, and then mailed off her vision to various church leaders. They then attributed her vision to being from the Holy Spirit.
About that time an Irish lawyer and preacher named John Nelson Darby who had started a sect called “The Brethren”, had been formulating his doctrine we know as Dispensationalism; which basically makes God a respecter of persons and declares He has different plans for different people in different times. While attending meetings on Bible Prophecy he heard of this vision of the rapture and as he investigated this, he found it seemed to fit with his already contrived view of dispensationalism. This then became a cornerstone of Fundamentalist Protestant Evangelicalism. From 1862 to 1877, Darby lived and traveled throughout the United States and Canada, spreading his fundamentalist doctrine.

Enter Cyrus I. Scofield (1843-1921). Now here was an amazing character, who was also a self professed lawyer (like Darby) with no real training. Scofield had fought for a short time for the Confederacy and defended the institution of black slavery. After the Civil War he became as a Republican the United States Attorney for the district of Kansas and the Indian Territory. As a US Attorney, he was promptly accused of corruption in soliciting bribes from the railroads, and forced to resign after serving only six months in office. He had problems with alcoholism abandoned his wife and two daughters and shortly thereafter was jailed on forgery charges. According to a Kansas news paper: “after a series of forgeries and confidence games he fled the state and a destitute family and took refuge in Canada; nothing being heard of him until he turned up in St. Louis, where his wealthy widowed sister lived. She came to the front and squared up Cyrus' little follies by paying good round sums of money.”
Then he found God and became a student of Darby. In 1883 Scofield was ordained as a Congregationalist minister, and pastured a church in Dallas and latter in Massachusetts. He was apparently an energetic and commanding speaker as his congregations grew in size. He became more steeped in “Dispensationalist Theology” and moved to Switzerland to work on his now famous reference bible. He had no visible means of support but seemed to be backed by a number of influential and wealthy businessmen. Apparently among his backers were; Lyman Stewart, president of the Union Oil Co. of California; Francis E. Fitch, a member of the Plymouth Brethren and the head of a printing company which printed the New York Stock Exchange lists; Alwyn Ball, Jr., a real estate broker and member of the large New York real estate firm of Southack and Ball; John B. Buss, a St. Louis businessman; and John T. Pirie, owner and New York representative of Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co., the large Chicago department store. Also amoung his sponsors was an eccentric banker named Henry Drummond, who was involved from the very beginning, making his resources available first to Irving’s church in London, and then continuing to support the fundamentalist “Brethren” movement under Darby.

I think it is important to mention that the teaching of this heresy could never have happened unless there had been extensive assistance from elite and wealthy men who helped to finance the spreed of these deceptions from the beginning. We can speculate as to why they were so willing to fund this message. Could it be because it ultimately had the effect of excusing them as “Christians” from the call to defend the poor and downtrodden, or because it offered them something they couldn’t buy? It appeared as a sure way to buy a cheep ticket to heaven without a real repentance; or any need to experience pain, sickness and death.
When Scofield had completed his work on this referance bible, it was published by Oxford Press. This is very unusual in that they had never published any work of an American author, nor had they ever published anything of a religious nature. So why did they publish this work? Again I would point to those that sponsered him, and the fact that Oxford Press was owned by the Rothchilds. The Rothchilds are a whole other story which God willing I will cover some in another post, but for now let me just say they are the main driving force behind the creation of the “State of Israel”. May I recommend the book “Synagogue of Satan”. So at best this work and ministry was an effort to to justify the rich in their exploitation of the earth and the poor, and give them a false hope of escape; or perhaps more likely something more sinister like a spirit of deception to blind the hearts of men that they might believe a lie. This doctrine has served the Rothchilds well in their establishing of Zionism. 2Thes:2:11: “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”

I will endeavor to now give you some sound biblical basis for why this heresy of “the pre-millennium, pre-tribulation rapture” is evil to its core. I hope that you will prayerfully consider, the weight of this teaching as we look at the scriptures. Let's take a quick look at what the doctrine teaches for those that are not familiar with it. The idea is that there is coming a 7 year period of tribulation in which the Antichrist will be ruling the earth. During this time, the "born again" believers will be "raptured" out of the earth and meet the Lord in the air and clouds thereby escaping the terrible times on the earth. All that will be left to suffer because of their sins are the unbelievers and the Jews that God has a different plan to be evangelized again. At the end of that time, Jesus will return again to defeat the Antichrist and set up the Kingdom of God.
Now let’s look at the scriptures that are used to build this doctrine. I would like to take these verses and look at each of them. We see the words of Jesus. In Mt:24.40: Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41: Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. At first glance it would appear to confirm the idea of the rapture.But.....All scripture should be taken in context. Let's look back a few verses Mt:24:37: "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, (this is a description of people just going on about their daily lives as though nothing was wrong and all things are the same. Look at our society today. People think that life has always been this way, going to the movies or ball games and living our self indulgent lives even in the face of the wars and rumors of wars.) until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; ( who knew not? Noe knew because he entered into the ark. Who was taken all away? It was the wicked that were taken, Noe and his family were safe inside the ark.) so shall also the coming of the Son of man be". In the same manner shall his return be. The wicked one in the field and at the grinding wheel are taken not the righteous. People that are expecting to be raptured before any trouble will just be skipping merrily along completely blind to what is happening because it doesn't fit in to their plans.
Now it is important that we believe that the bible is consistent. Also a cornerstone principal in interpreting the bible is to let the bible define what it means (this is called a Hermeneutical principal). In other words, if we read the word clouds, we think of some white stuff in the sky, but that may not be what the bible means. So we should let the bible tell us what it means by seeing how it is used in other places. With this in mind, we can look at the cornerstone scripture of this heresy. 1st Thess.4:16: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”Again, we must take this in context, so let us look back a few verses. 13: “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.15: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep”.The context of what Paul is talking about is the saints that are asleep ( the dead in Christ ). He is trying to answer the questions as to what happens to those that have died or may die before the Lord returns.
Then he goes on to say;” For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven " Now where do you suppose he is descending from? Where is Heaven? Is it a quarter of a mile beyond the most distant star and every time we invent a more powerful telescope He moves it back a bit? No Of course not. Jesus told us that the Kingdom of God is within you. Paul told us in 2Cor:12:2 that he was "caught up to the third heaven". Did he leave the earth? No! The third heaven is the highest heaven. The bible shows us many “types” of these heavens. In the book of Exodus we see the design of the tabernacle. It had three courts, the Outer Court, the Holy Place, and the Holiest of All. The Holiest of All was where the Ark was placed. God sat upon the ark (like his throne). It was a type of the third heaven, the realm of the spirit. The three courts are significant of Body, Soul, and Spirit, or the material physical world, soul and spirit. The Outer Court is where the sacrifices were made and blood was shed. The Holy Place is where the Lampstand, the Table of Shewbread and the Alter of Incense were placed. These represent the parts of the soul: mind, will and heart. In the Holiest of All inside the Ark were also 3 objects, Moses’ tablets of stone (Ten Commandments) Aaron’s rod that budded and the pot of Manna. These represent the powers of the spirit; faith, hope and love.
One more time, Rv:4:2 "And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne." This clearly tells us where heaven is. It is in the Spirit; another realm or dimension. John never left the island. Heaven does not now exist in a material sense. Those that think it does have an overly materialistic view. It will, because Jesus prayed "thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth" but it is not here yet. Now with this understanding, we see that when it says that the Lord is descending it means he is coming back from the realm of the spirit which is a higher realm and descending to be revealed to our souls CLEARLY! ( for now we see through a glass darkly) To arise in our hearts. 2Pt:1:19: "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star ( Christ ) arise in your hearts". Finally He will be physically manifest. In a sense there are two comings. One in us and one for us. 1Jn:3:2: "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, (by faith) and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." Now let's look at this portion back in 1st Thess. "with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:" This is telling us of a messenger and Gods word going forth. The Trumpet always means a proclamation. Rv:4:1: “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither”. We will see much of this Trumpet. Next portion “and the dead in Christ shall rise first” again the context is the dead in Christ. 17: “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them (that are) in the clouds,” Notice it doesn’t say we are going into the clouds it is talking about those that are in the clouds. If you search the scriptures, you will see that the clouds are significant of the abode of the dead, the dwelling place of the spirits of the dead and the Angels, the realm of the spirit. Mt:17:5, Mt:24:30, Mt:26:64, Mk:13:26 In Acts:1:9: “And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud RECEIVED him out of their sight.” It didn’t say he faded off in the distance till he was in the clouds. 1Cor:10:2: “And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; ” We are to be baptized in water and the spirit. Heb: 2:1: “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses.” Those are the saints and the angels.Again in one place it says Rv:1:7 “behold he cometh with CLOUDS” then in Jude:1:14:” Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,”. Which is it, with saints, or with clouds? Or are they the same? Remember we interpret the bible by the bible.

Now let’s look at the words “caught up” . This refers to the time when we shall be changed, this mortal putting on immortality. 1Cor:15:52: “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” So now we know that it is the LAST trump. This is the same event. The next part in 1stThess. says “to meet the Lord in the air:” The word “Air “ here is the same word used when Paul said in Eph:2:2: “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the AIR, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” 2Cor:4:4:” In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” The word Air here means the lower atmosphere, this material dimension, or the Outer Court, where Satan rules. “and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” We are not going up and coming back because His kingdom will be here. Rv:11:15 “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Hallelujah!!!!
In Genesis 1:26: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion.” At the end of the sixth day the very last thing God says “the Last Trump” man in our image, after our likeness: True spiritual man in the image of Christ. Remember the bible is consistent. Jesus said “the meek shall inherit the earth” Not the wicked. It will be through the believers that the Kingdom will be restored. Mal:4:1: For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2: But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3: And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
Prov:10:30: The righteous shall NEVER be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. Did you notice the NEVER in the verse? No not ever not even for 7 years. At the end of the age it is the wicked that are taken first, not the righteous, Mt:13:30: “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together FIRST the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn”. Psalm 37:34: Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. If we will see it how can we have been removed? Read the whole of Psalm 37.
The teaching of the “Rapture” is a damnable heresy. It teaches people that they will escape because “they are Gods Children” therefore God wouldn’t let them suffer. This is a terrible selfish and blindsided view of the world. Tell that to the Christians in Iraq or China or Russia, or even the early Christians that were martyred. It has also blinded Christians to the Evil going on in the world and blinded them from seeing the Antichrist at work.
These Fundamentalists think we are to be born and stay a baby and get raptured out. They just want to add Jesus to their plans instead of seeking Gods plan. God wants to raise us up to the greater work he has called us to.

Another very important scripture in this doctrine is 2 Thessalonians. Let’s look at it in context. I will put my comments in RED in the verses. Starting with Vs 1 2Thes:2:1: "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, This is the coming of the Lord Paul is speaking of 2: That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. He is telling them not to worry that the day was near for them regardless if they heard it as a writing like the "Left Behind" series or by a deceiving spirit. 3: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, I believe that this falling away was the Church since the power of the early church, the dark ages and lack of real power in the body. and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;4: 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. Now he just told us two things that the church should look for before the coming of the Lord and the gathering together unto Him so we would not be fooled, one; "a falling away" and two; The "man of sin the son of perdition" be revealed. Now if we are going to be gone, how would that be a sign to us to look for? He said I beg you to not be fooled.5: Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?6: And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.7: For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let (or that which now restrains or holds back the evil), until he (it) be taken out of the way. Now nobody really knows for sure what that restrainer is, but it is something that is holding back rampant chaos. The Rapturists believe this is the Holy Spirit, and the Church can not exist without Him. The problem with this understanding is The Holy Spirit exists in His Church but is also apart from it. If all mankind were removed from the earth, The Spirit of God would still be here. He was here before man got here and would be here if we are gone. Gen:1:2: "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." notice this is before Man. As I pointed out that He is Omnipresent, but the "Church" on the other hand has been one of the worst sources of corruption throughout the ages. My feeling is that this thing that is restraining the "Lawless One" is the Law itself, the Constitution of the US. It has all but been completely removed. When Marshall Law is declared, The Constitution will be done away. Bush declared "The Constitution is just a God Damn piece of paper" But it is all that has been standing between us and Bush declaring himself dictator. Another problem with their teaching is that if the Holy Spirit is gone, how will the Jews that are supposed to be saved during the tribulation come to know Jesus? 8: And then shall that Wicked be revealed, (the Antichrist) whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, Eph:6:17 sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God see also Heb:4;12 and Rv:1:16: ....and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. so we see by the scripture that the "spirit of His mouth" is the Word of God in power. and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:(presence) They are blind and can not see that the Antichrist has been revealed in the person of George W. Bush 9: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, Lying wonders like 911 10: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: Could this be the "Rapture" and trusting in Capitalism which is a false religion and democracy and the systems of this world?
12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

The idea that we must escape the tribulation is again heresy. All through the ages the believers have suffered persecution. Jesus said the servant is not greater then the master, if they persecuted and killed Him, they will and have done so to the true believers. Jn:15:20. To the believer "Tribulation" is as a refiner’s fire. It will perfect the church, preparing us and conforming us into His image; but to the wicked it will be destruction. Rom: 5:3: "And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;” The destruction will only burn that which is of the world and not of God. Ps: 91:7: A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Ps: 57:1: Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. This is what it means to be hid in Christ. Have a look at the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, in the midst of the fiery furnace Daniel 3.
This verse seems to say it quite clearly; Acts:14:22: Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. Not only are we told that we must enter through tribulation but Jesus makes us a promise, maybe not the kind of promise we like to hear but none the less a promise. Jn: 16:33: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”.
Much of our foreign policy is based on this other lie of the enemy; the aspect of Dispensationalism which is known as Zionism. It has been the justification for the Neo-Con Fundamentalists blind support for the “Nation of Israel”; why we turn a blind eye to the atrocities that the Israelis commit. We are told that the Jews are Gods chosen people, but this is not the case according to Scripture. They were Gods chosen people, and God protected the blood lines down through the ages. Through Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and King David, God brought forth the Messiah. He had protected and chastised these people to keep them pure and to carry the Holy Scripture; but once the Messiah had come forth, they were no longer Gods chosen people but “Whosoever believeth” John 3:16. Now salvation was for the Jew and the Gentile. Paul makes this clear in Rom.9;7: “Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8: That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. In Genesis when God made the promise to Abraham he said that He would make his seed as the stars of heaven multitudes which are countless. This could not be the Jews in Israel as there are only an estimated 15 to 17 million Jews in the whole world. Rev 7:9 aligns with what Paul said about the believers being the seed “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;” Then in verse 14, we see who they are, “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
We know that many are looking for another Temple to be rebuilt and It may be that they will build another temple on the temple mount but that does not have to happen for the scripture to be fulfilled. The only temple that the Lord wishes to restore is "the Temple which is His body" Hag:2:9: The glory of this latter house the end time church shall be greater than of the former the early church, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts. He is coming for a glorious church not one waiting for the rapture, and when He appears we will be like him and will see Him as He is. Isa:59:19: So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Amen, Even so Come Lord Jesus.

True Prophet Vs False Prophet


The true prophet is correct in content and moral quality.
In the previous post you have seen the work of a false prophet and a deceiver. He wasn't necessarily lying about the content, but he was lying about the source and the moral quality. The Lord I believe may have held back the timing of this event in order to show forth the fact that Pat Robertson is a false prophet. Most of his predictions come from his own lying spirit. I believe that the one he made last year
about an attack on America he heard from his sources in this administration. If you read the previous post you have seen that he is in fact well connected to the Bush Crime Family, and the ties go way back to Robertson's father and Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush and have roots in "Skull and Bones".

Today we celebrate a holiday to commemorate a man that was a sinner saved by grace and the blood of Jesus Christ. His life was cut off by these same evil men that want to destroy and kill. They are still in control and still moving our world towards the Antichrist agenda of a "New World Order".

Martin Luther King Jr. was a threat to them. He saw their doings, and spoke truth to power, and it cost him his life. They have since in many ways tried to discredit him by pointing out his "sins" and his humanity, but what they don't know is that, Rom:11:29: " the gifts and calling of God are without repentance."

He knew whom he had believed and Phil:1:6: "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:"
He knew what the true spirit of prophecy is. It does not just consist of only "Foretelling" but "Forthtelling" truth in words and actions. His life was given to truth and peace.
Listen to his words. You will not hear this speech on American TV.


Nothing could be more relevant today.





Rom:13:11: .. "knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed."

Eph:5:14: "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light."

Looking Behind the Fa├žade


The average person never really bothers to check out who “the man behind the curtain” really is. Just like in the “Wizard of Oz” we are trained to “Pay no attention” to what is behind what we see and are told; but if you do, if you question and seek the truth; the revelation can be quite stunning.

Who is Pat Robertson really? Is he a man of God or a man of sin and a false prophet? In order to answer that question we should look at where he came from, his background. Pat was not the country boy that his image pretends to be but he was the son of a U.S. Congressman and then Senator from Virginia. Absalom Willis Robertson. (1887-1971) He served as U.S. Congressman from March 4, 1933, until November 5, 1946, when he resigned because he had received the nomination for United States Senator; elected on November 5, 1946 and served till 1966.
Interestingly enough during this same time frame another man was climbing the political ladder to power; Prescott Bush, the grandfather of this Antichrist president. Prescott first ran for his Connecticut Senate seat in 1950 but lost. He ran again in 1952 and was successful for the office this time with the help of the Republican sweep of Dwight D Eisenhower, and his mentor and friend Absalom Robertson chairman, Committee on Banking and Currency. (See the “Money Masters”)

Now if you know anything about Prescott, you know that he should have been tried for treason when he and his partner Averell Harriman having formed the Union Bank of New York used it as a money laundering operation to fund Nazi Germany’s war machine.

The backers were names like John D Rockefeller, Henry Ford ( a known racist Nazi) The DuPont family, the Remingtons (making the bullets for the wars) The Carnegies , the Melons, Disney, even Jewish wealth like the Lehmans. These rich powerful industrialists saw Adolph Hitler as a rising political star. Most of these names and families went to the Eastern establishment schools and most importantly Yale. This takes us to “Skull and Bones” Out of this secret society have come many of the rulers and masters of this country and world; leaders in politics, CIA publishing, media, and banking. Well guess what; Pat Robertson also went to Yale and graduated from the Law school in 1955. Robertson with his background and political power was most probably also a member of Skull and Bones but we do not have access to confirm that information. What we do know is that he failed to pass the bar exam, shortly afterward he underwent his “religious conversion”, and decided against pursuing a career in law.
Instead, Robertson attended the New York Theological Seminary, and was awarded a Master of Divinity degree in 1959. In 1960 he started Christian Broadcasting Network with the help of his backers, his brothers from Yale.

Does anyone else see some amazing coincidences? The Robertsons and the Bushes go way back. Perhaps this might help explain how it is that out of one of the worst Law Schools in the country Regent University Law, over one hundred and fifty of its graduates now hold high ranking positions in the Bush Administration.

Unfortunatly this is not just a case of I did you a favor so now you are doing me a favor. This is much more sinister. There is a reason to place those that have been trained and indoctrinated in this mindset and have this loyalty in controlling stations.

I am afraid that it is to further the adjenda of this Neo-Con Jewish/Christian Zionism.
The picture I am trying to paint here is related to the article I did on “The Great Whore” The enemy and the Antichrist have an adjenda. The plan it to bring about “The New World Order”. World domination and Empire. The members of Skull and Bones have had their missions and assigned duties. Robertsons was to discredit Christianity.
This plan goes way back. In 1967 a very interesting article on The Illuminati Agenda was published. You can find it here
It is several pages but well worth the read.
In part 4 we see a very interesting paragraph;
“one of the four specific assignments Rothschild gave Jacob Schiff was to create a movement to destroy religion in the United States with Christianity to be the chief target. For a very obvious reason; the Anti defamation League wouldn't dare to attempt to do it because such an attempt could create the most terrible blood bath in the history of the world; not only for the ADL and the conspirators, but for the millions of innocent Jews.
Schiff turned that job over to Rockefeller for another specific reason. The destruction of Christianity could be accomplished only by those who are entrusted to preserve it. By the pastors; the men of the cloth.”
The Fundamentalists are deceived by him because he seems to use the Word but has not the spirit of Love. They would claim “He preaches the gospel”, but I would say it is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I talk to people about Jesus I have to overcome the damage that Robertson and those of the same spirit and doctrine have done. They are so turned off to what they perceive Christianity to be because of what has been portrayed. It is hard for people to see that this is not the Jesus of the Bible. Fundamentalists would say “He saves souls, He leads people to Christ”. I would tell you for every one they seem to lead to the Lord, they turn off tens of thousands. Mt:23:15: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.”
Mt:7:15: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16: Ye shall know them by their fruits.”
Let us have a look at some of the ‘Fruit” After having seed money to start CBN he received pledges from followers that made them members of the “700 Club” As the network grew and other programming was added, viewers soared, making the network very valuable. He bought the network from the non-profit organization for a fraction of what he sold it about a year latter for. He received stock in International Family Entertainment Inc, which was then bought out by Fox Family (News Corp Rupert Murdock or is that Moloch?) The deal was worth more than 80 million to Robertson. He latter took some of those profits and now runs diamond mines in Africa. These are in fact BLOOD DIAMONDS. According to a 1997 article in the Lubbock Avalanche Journal, Robertson’s financial interests in Africa extend to diamond mines. In fact the former chief pilot for Operation Blessing claims that most of the supposedly humanitarian aid flights to Zaire were in fact mining related. Airplanes sent to Zaire by evangelist Pat Robertson's tax-exempt humanitarian organization were used almost exclusively for his diamond mining business, say two pilots who flew them. Three airplanes were flown to Zaire in September 1994 by Operation Blessing. However, chief pilot Robert Hinkle said only one or two of the roughly 40 flights during his six months in the country could be considered humanitarian. All the rest of the flights were mining-related, he told The (Norfolk) Virginia-Pilot. "We hauled medical supplies one time," Hinkle said in a telephone interview. "It might have been about 500 pounds at the most. It was a very minimal amount." The planes were capable of carrying about 7,000 pounds, he said.

Ezek 34:2-3
“Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.”
Not long ago, Robertson called for us to assassinate Hugo Chaves Does this sound like what Jesus taught when he said love your enemies? Chaves is guilty of not supporting “Capitalism”. Perhaps his closest partner was the late Demon Jerry Falwell. Jerry you may remember said In a televised debate on CNN, President Bush should "blow them (the terrorists) all away in the name of the Lord." Now the scary thing is that in January of this year 2007 Pat Robertson said that “God Told Him Of a 2007 Mass Terror Attack” coming sometime in the second half of this year. He suggested that it may be Nuclear. If this happens many will be fooled into believing that he is a true prophet because he heard from God, but the truth is if such a thing happens, and I believe it most probably will, it was not God that told him, but his connections that run deep in this administration.

These creatures that are in control are all bought and paid for. They have sold their souls. 1Tm:6:10: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Be not deceived. The Day of the Lord is at Hand.

The Great Whore



MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.


Rev17: 1-8
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

When we read the Book of Revelation we must understand how and from what perspective it was written. We have all seen books like “Revelation made easy”. Unfortunately that is what the Christian establishment would have you think. This book was not meant for everyone to understand. Yes I know it promises a blessing to who ever shall read it, Rev.1:3; but they neglect to point out that it also says to those that keep it. This book is written in a way so as to be sealed to the spiritually blind, or immature. It contains great mysteries and power. If this power got into the hands of the wrong people, it would be like putting an atom bomb in the hands of a two year old. Heb: 5:14: “But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

The idea that deep spiritual truth is hidden to some may not be popular, but there is much scriptural basis for this. Lk: 8:10: “And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.” We also see that timing may be a factor in understanding Gods message to us. Dan: 12:4: “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Like now).

In 1st Corinthians 12:2, Paul says he was caught up into the third heaven and in vs. 4 says: “How that he(referring to himself) was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” Paul never left the earth, but had entered the spirit. Spiritual things can not always be translated “word for word”.When John wrote the Apocalypse, he said Rev: 1:10: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,” If he wrote it from the stand point of being in the spirit, does it not make sense to endeavor to understand it form the spirit?


We have heard it said that we have a left side of our brain and a right side (I am not sure which is which) One is more systematic and follows a flow of information, It is structured and ordered. It is where the math is done; sees the “real world” and has to put things into categories, and relates to the material universe, it is the Law. The other side sees images and patterns. It is creative, and sees things in pictures, and cycles. This is the side that sees into the spirit. This is the side that the book of Revelation appeals to. This explains why there seems to be many fulfillments to the verses contained in it. God is creating imagery so you can spot his hand and fulfillment.Obviously much of its literal fulfillment has taken place with Rome, and Nero; But we see the same patterns like waves continue across the sands of time. Cycles that build until one final culmination. “Like travail upon women with child”With this in mind, let us look back over history. How long has Satan had his grip and been in control of this world? It has been right since the beginning in the garden. How quickly people forget. God made this whole creation for man, and man gave it over to Satan. As a result all of creation is corruptible, running down and dying (The second law of thermo-dynamics). From that moment on God has been moving us toward His final plan, His Seventh Day, to bring us into His rest. As we look at the cycles and waves, they are not all exactly alike, but we see many of the same pictures. This explains why many believers and the early church would get it wrong as to the end, and the Antichrist.

Through out History there have been many Antichrists. 1Jn:2:18: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” We can start out with Pharaoh, the Babylonians, and Alexander the Great. Antiochus Epiphanies was the culmination in the Old Testament times. He offered a blood sacrifice of a pig in the Holy of Holies. He was prophesied of in Daniel. Then in New Testament times we have the first appearance in Judas; Most of the Caesars, especially those that fought against Christ, like Nero. Then here in this century many thought Adolph Hitler, was the Antichrist. Although he fulfilled much of what was needed to qualify he was apparently not yet the One. Now we are looking at the most chilling possibility in the person of George W. Busche. If we turn out to be incorrect again, the cycle will swing around again with more and more evil till “That Man of sin be revealed, The Son of Perdition”.I have given a broad look at history because I want us to see the whole picture.


Who and what is “This Great Whore”? She is an image of one ridding on the back of a beast. This beast is full of names of blasphemy or false gods. She is arrayed in wealth with Gold (significant of divine nature) and pearls (from the sea) and precious stones (from the dry land), full of the splendor of this world. We see an image of Grandeur. Like Christ her colors are Red (the color for man, blood) and Purple the color of royalty. Blue by the way is the color for God; it is the color of the heavens. Purple is the combination of blue and red. Christ was the combination of God = blue and Man= red giving us purple; The God Man and Royal King of Kings. It says she is sitting upon many waters. In verse 15, it tells us what those waters are. “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” It is all the people of the world that have and are being oppressed by her ridding on their back. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. All the kingdoms of the world and nations and empires have been in bed with their religious systems. They use each other to control the masses. By false promises like the American dream, the deceitfulness of riches and all the other lies that have been told us through the ages they have made the people drunk with her wine. Mk: 4:19: And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. Rev.17: 2. “the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”Again it is important to have this broad look at history because this image does. This beast has seven heads. Verses 9-11 read;
“The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition."
Mountains are significant of Kingdoms; the kings mentioned are the representatives of those Kingdoms. The five that had fallen were: 1.Egypt, 2.Assyria, 3.Babylon, 4.Medo-Persia, and 5.Greece. “One is” 6. Rome. And the other had “not yet come” – 7.The American Empire. This nation may have started out benign but it is now going into perdition. It has only been around a short while as it was written. Then we see the beast that was and is not being the eighth. God says “I am that I am” Satan says “I am that I am not” This eighth is the Antichrist system that fills the whole earth. It is of the seven because it grew out of them, headed by the same kinds of Antichrists.

A few summers ago I had the privilege of taking a trip to some of the great cities of Europe. We went to London and saw the Palace of the Queen with all its might. How ironic that right in front in the park was a poor young homeless man. Then we went on to Paris; More amazing and dazzling splendor. The Louvre and Versailles full of their treasures and mixture of Christian and Pagan occult symbolism. Next stop; Rome, The Empire and the Coliseum. The Vatican with the most incredible splendor of all. You go inside and the glint of gold is everywhere. Wealth and riches beyond your wildest dreams. And as I was awe struck the Word of the Lord came to me Rev.17:6-7:
“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?”
So remarkable where the wonders of this Great Whore, that even John marveled. When the kings of France so abused the people, they rose up and cut off their heads. These blind guides in the Vatican hide behind God.All this wealth and power and massive edifices are all designed to intimidate and control people and blind them from the truth; to make the masses drunk with the wine of her delicacies. Everywhere; we saw Church after Church, Dome with Obelisk; Symbols of pagan deity worship. The Oblisk is the male symble for Horis and the Dome is the egg or womb symbol for Isis. You see the same picture right in Washington DC on the Mall, Congress on one end and the Washington Monument at the other end. This is no coincidence. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the devil, Lk: 4:5-7:
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him ALL the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time (including today’s). And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine”.
Jesus didn’t disagree that it was Satan’s to give, but he knew Mt: 16:26: “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” So his answer was Lk: 4:8: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

This is all about building the Kingdoms of this world on the backs of the poor. It is about the worship of Mammon the God of this age at the cost of the blood sweat and tears of those that are simple. If Satan owned this present world and Jesus called him “the prince of this world”Jn.12:31 and Paul called him the “god of this world” and said that he “had blinded the minds of men” 2Cor:4:4 How foolish are to think that he would not have gone after our religious systems.Think about all the atrocities that have been committed through the ages in the name of Religion and Political Ideologies; All proclaiming a just and true cause; Everything from the Crusades and the Inquisitions to the fight for Democracy or Communism.

Think of the suffering, starvation and despair of the dark ages. These all made richer the money changers while the saints bleed in the streets. They kept back the word of God and taught that only the Priests were able to talk to God; Thus developing a kind of Illuminati or Illuminated class. They had a MYSTERY which they kept from the common man. People were kept in their place by the use of guilt, keeping them bound up worrying about their sexual desires; while they were committing every kind of sexual atrocities imaginable. Several Popes were known to have kept young boys and would simply burry them when they were through with them. Mt: 23:27: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.” They are still indulging themselves in the fat and luxuries of this world.

When the new Nazi Pope was negotiated into power by George Bush, (Kings fornicating with the Whore) I would watch the Cardinals getting out of their big limos dressed in Scarlet and Purple and gold and precious stones. Then a servant would run up with an umbrella to protect His tenderness from the terrible rays of the SON. I thought to my self, “Who does she think she is? Michael Jackson?”At the time Jesus came, the Jewish hierarchy were living well and mixing there business practices with there religion. When they unearthed the home of Caiaphas the high priest, it was clear that he was a rich man. The reason the Jews rejected Christ the first time was because he didn’t come to do their bidding. (as a note, it was not the common Jews that rejected Him, many of the early church were Jews. It was the Jewish establishment.) They wanted Him to “Restore the Kingdom to Israel” or return to the status quoi and there ruling order. They didn’t really care what He was preaching or doing, as far as they were concerned He was just a nuisance. But when He messed with their money and overturned the money changers tables, they were threatened. This is when they wanted Him killed. You should all view the film called the “Money Masters”.

So who is this Great Whore of Babylon? Remember in another post I said all the religions of the world seem to have their roots in Babylon. This is why she is the Mother of Harlots. She is ALL of the organized religions of this world. She is Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, The Roman Catholic church, The right wing fundamentalist, Denominationalism and Zionists; She is the cults and Isms; She is the Secret societies and Black Arts; She is the Idols and Demon Gods from ancient times that keep coming back riding on the back of the worlds political systems. The two give power to each other. They are in bed together committing fornication. They are not flesh and blood but powers and principalities the rulers of the darkness of this world; they are spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph:6:12We now see the whole earth subdued by her and consuming the world recourses. The blind masses worshiping at the alter of consumerism putting themselves further and further into enslavement; being bound to the love of this world Lusting for Oil to drive her machines. Rv:9:2: “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”(air pollution)I know that some will think me a crazy person after reading this. But:
  • 2Tm:1:7: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  • 1Cor:2:14: “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
We have come to think it is normal and the way it should be for our families to be scattered all over the place “without natural affection” to serve this Industrial Military Complex.
  • Rv: 6:10: “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?”
  • Rv: 18:4: 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.”
  • 1Pt:2:9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”

The art work in this and the last post is my work, putting them together from a number of pictures. If you click on them you can see a bigger version.

The Two Witnesses




I Will Send Them Apostles and Prophets

In the Book of Revelation chapter 11 we see mentioned a very mysterious pair; “My Two Witnesses” (vs.3). Most people have trouble understanding much of The Word of God because they fail to look at the big picture. God is concerned with the smallest details but also paints a broad picture that spans the expanse of history. How wonderful is our God that knows every hair on my head Mt: 10:30 and therefore is intimately involved with my life, but is also in control of the entire course of history.

As we explore and try to uncover who these Two Witnesses are, I would like to review some points I have covered in other posts. In the discussion of “The Great Whore” I pointed out how that literally from the very beginning in the garden the world has been in a fallen state. This is not how creation is meant to be. When Adam ate of the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” He knew that he was naked because he went from being God conscience to being self conscience. At that moment mans perception of God became veiled. We were blinded by sin. We no longer could see and hear Gods voice plainly, but as through a veil. What God had made for man, man gave to the devil, and he has been the pervading spirit in the world since. Jesus said Satan is the God of this age.

So then man found himself in a place where he no longer walked with God. He was blinded and deceived. The enemy of God wanted to destroy the object of His love; “The apple of His eye”. Satan had set about to corrupt all of the institutions of man, and deceive man into thinking that “we shall be as God” The spirit behind all of mans institutions tries to place self on the throne and make God into a myth. The devil and his Nephilim taught men how to be independent from God, and worship the works of our own hands. But “God so Loved the World” that He would buy it back. He would pay the ULTIMATE price for His willingness to Love us.

Now because we were separated from God we no longer could discern the voice of the Good Shepherd. The very thoughts that come into your head come from somewhere. Where do they come from? One of three places; Self, through the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life 1Jn:2:16; the Devil and his minions with lies, deception and murder; Or God by His Holy Spirit and messengers. Every false religion in the world is mans attempt to reach God by his own efforts. How futile. For the finite to understand the infinite would be like trying to put all the oceans in a glass; but God is able to reveal Himself. For man to reach God would be like a man trying to take a running jump and land on the Sun; but the Sun’s rays reach us as God is able to reach us. In this lays the answer to the Two Witnesses. They are how God reaches us; they are “The Spirit” and “The Word”, for they bear witness of Him.

With this in mind, let us look at how this has been manifested. With man separated from God, He provided a way for us to find our way back. He gave us Two Witnesses to testify of Him. They were revealed in the Lord Jesus Himself Jn:1:14: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,” Jn:6:63: “It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”

The Spirit and the Word agree. If you have a spirit that tells you something that is contrary to Gods word, that spirit is not of God. 1Jn:4:1: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”. On the other hand if you have the Word with the wrong spirit or without the spirit you also err. “For the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.” 2Cor:3:6.

Knowing the Word is not enough. Jn:5:39: “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40: And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” The Word is given as a Witness to know the Father as the Spirit reveals Him. We can not know the Word without the Spirit, and we can not know the Spirit without the Word. The Word would be just dead letter (like a dead body lying in the street) without the Spirit; and without the Word, we would not know what spirit we were listening to. Lk:9:55: “But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.”

Most of fundamentalist Christianity interprets the Book of Revelation as though it were literal. It is obviously metaphoric and drawing word pictures. It was written in the spirit and must be understood from the spirit. Rev.1: 10: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11: Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book,” So if he was “In the Spirit” and saw spiritual things, how than can they be understood with a carnal material mind? Many of the keys to understanding this book are in the Old Testament and particularly the Prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel and Daniel. If you ever see a book titled “The Book of Revelation Made Easy” Please don’t waste your money. Although God promised a blessing to read it, it was not meant to be easy to understand. In it is contained great power and mystery. If the spiritually immature could so easily gain access, it would be like putting an atom bomb in the hands of a two year old, or like having George Bush in the White House. It is after all the “Revelation of Jesus Christ”
Having laid this ground work, let us look at the scripture in Revelation 11. I have put the actual verse in RED and my comments in contrast.

1: And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. Remember what the Temple of God is. Jn:2: 19: Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.20: Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21: But he spoke of the temple of his body. Eph:5:30: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles:
This is the outer court, that which is not part of the temple. and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3 ½ years

3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
3 ½ years again. Here we see that this number is a representation of a time period. If you add them together you get 7 or the complete cycle of the “week”. These two witnesses are the great men of God that spoke the Word of God in power and called upon Israel to return unto the Lord. They moved in the Power and Spirit of The Word. 4: These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. The olive trees are the source of the anointing oil (spirit) that fed the candle sticks which gave off light. The light of the world which is the Word of God (see Zech.4:2-5)
Vs. 6: Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

5: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
God’s divine protection was upon them. No man could do anything to them unless God allowed it. They knew this so there was no fear in them.

6: These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:
Elijah and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. Moses. Here are the two great examples of the Two Witnesses. Moses delivered the Word, and was the Apostle of God, and Elijah was the Prophet of the Lord calling on the power of the Spirit. These appeared with Jesus on the mount of transfiguration. Both had there bodies taken into the Spirit, Elijah never saw death.

7: And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
All that had gone before was to give testimony and Witness of He that was to come. Even the Lord Jesus Himself, who was and is the incarnation of the Word empowered by the Spirit, came to complete the testimony of the Fathers plan. Then; Eph:4:11: “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets;” The early church moved in demonstration and power of the word and the spirit. When Peter walked if just his shadow fell on someone they were healed. Acts:5:15. Paul was not converting the multitudes by his Televangelism. Although he was well educated and an intellectual, He knew that it would not be by a wonderful theological debate that the lost would come to the truth, but by the WORD of the SPIRIT. 1Cor:2:4: “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:” Jn:6:63: …. the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. This lasted only a short time. As the enemy tried to counterfeit the spirit with the Law; the church became spiritually dead. When Constantine came along there was mostly infighting and the dead remains of the ministries of the Apostles and Prophets (word and spirit – the two witnesses)

8: And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem, which is the city of God the church; but why the reference to Sodom and Egypt? Sodom speaks of the selfish nature. Ezek:16:49: “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.” Egypt represents the love of this world and its riches. What is being described here is a false Jerusalem, a false church that has all the pretence and words, but not the life.

9: And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half,
3 ½ significant of the time from the early church till the end time church. and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. No they built shrines and monuments and alters to them in defiance to the word of God. They turned the humbleness of the ministry of Jesus and the sackcloth of the apostles and prophets into glitzy palaces, to be used for power and control.

10: And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
. Isa:1: 21: “How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. 22: Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
23: Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless; neither does the cause of the widow come unto them.” They make merry with gifts, does this sound anything like the pagan holiday of the winter solicits we call Christmas that is an orgy of consumerism. Jer.10: 2: “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3: For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4: They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.” This sounds like a Christmas tree to me. They make pretence at being pious but the truth is that if the Holy Spirit were guiding by His Word, The Great Whore would not be making merry and being drunk with the blood of the saints. Isaiah 58 paints a picture of the church today.

11: And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Mal:4: 1: “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.2: But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.3: And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4: Remember ye the Law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5: Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
This is the day all of creation has been waiting for. God is in this day raising up Apostles and Prophets with the Spirit and Power of His Word. Hag:2:9: “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”

12: And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Isa:40:9: “O Zion, that brings good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that brings good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!”

13: And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
We are living in the day that the shaking must come, It is meant to brake us loose from the bonds of this world. It may come by way of a nuclear bomb here in this country, we are on the verge of World War III. The world knows that the time is at hand. They can see the hand writing on the wall. You don’t have to be a believer to see it but you do have to be a believer to know what it means. Mt:9:37: “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; 38: Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.”; Apostles and Prophets, the Word and the Spirit, His Two Witnesses. Give us the real thing. Amen, so be it Lord Jesus.
