Daniel 2

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

In the second year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his mind was troubled and he could not sleep. So the king summoned the magicians,enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers[a] to tell him what he had dreamed. When they came in and stood before the king, he said to them, “I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means.[b]

Then the astrologers answered the king,[c] “May the king live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will interpret it.”

The king replied to the astrologers, “This is what I have firmly decided: If you do not tell me what my dream was and interpret it, I will have you cut into piecesand your houses turned into piles of rubble. But if you tell me the dream and explain it, you will receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor. So tell me the dream and interpret it for me.”

Once more they replied, “Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will interpret it.”

Then the king answered, “I am certain that you are trying to gain time, because you realize that this is what I have firmly decided: If you do not tell me the dream, there is only one penalty for you. You have conspired to tell me misleading and wicked things, hoping the situation will change. So then, tell me the dream, and I will know that you can interpret it for me.”

10 The astrologers answered the king, “There is no one on earth who can do what the king asks! No king, however great and mighty, has ever asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or astrologer. 11 What the king asks is too difficult. No one can reveal it to the king except the gods, and they do not live among humans.”

12 This made the king so angry and furious that he ordered the execution of all the wise men of Babylon. 13 So the decree was issued to put the wise men to death, and men were sent to look for Daniel and his friends to put them to death.

14 When Arioch, the commander of the king’s guard, had gone out to put to death the wise men of Babylon, Daniel spoke to him with wisdom and tact. 15 He asked the king’s officer, “Why did the king issue such a harsh decree?” Arioch then explained the matter to Daniel. 16 At this, Daniel went in to the king and asked for time, so that he might interpret the dream for him.

17 Then Daniel returned to his house and explained the matter to his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. 18 He urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that he and his friends might not be executed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 During the night the mysterywas revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven 20 and said:

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
    wisdom and power are his.
21 He changes times and seasons;
    he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
    and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
    he knows what lies in darkness,
    and light dwells with him.
23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors:
    You have given me wisdom and power,
you have made known to me what we asked of you,
    you have made known to us the dream of the king.”

Daniel Interprets the Dream

24 Then Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to execute the wise men of Babylon, and said to him, “Do not execute the wise men of Babylon. Take me to the king, and I will interpret his dream for him.”

25 Arioch took Daniel to the king at once and said, “I have found a man among the exiles from Judah who can tell the king what his dream means.”

26 The king asked Daniel (also called Belteshazzar), “Are you able to tell me what I saw in my dream and interpret it?”

27 Daniel replied, “No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come.Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you were lying in bed are these:

29 “As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. 30 As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.

31 “Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. 32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. 34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

36 “This was the dream, and now we will interpret it to the king. 37 Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; 38 in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.

39 “After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. 40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

44 “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

“The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.”

46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. 47 The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.”

48 Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men. 49 Moreover, at Daniel’s request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel himself remained at the royal court.

Daniel’s Dream of Four Beasts

In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind as he was lying in bed. He wrote down the substance of his dream.

Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a littleone, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

“As I looked,

“thrones were set in place,
    and the Ancient of Days took his seat.
His clothing was as white as snow;
    the hair of his head was white like wool.
His throne was flaming with fire,
    and its wheels were all ablaze.
10 A river of fire was flowing,
    coming out from before him.
Thousands upon thousands attended him;
    ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.
The court was seated,
    and the books were opened.

11 “Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. 12 (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.)

13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man,[a] coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

The Interpretation of the Dream

15 “I, Daniel, was troubled in spirit, and the visions that passed through my mind disturbed me. 16 I approached one of those standing there and asked him the meaning of all this.

“So he told me and gave me the interpretation of these things: 17 ‘The four great beasts are four kings that will rise from the earth. 18 But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever—yes, for ever and ever.’

19 “Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. 20 I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell—the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully.21 As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.

23 “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. 24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.[b]

26 “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. 27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High.His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’

28 “This is the end of the matter. I, Daniel, was deeply troubled by my thoughts,and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself.”

  • Daniel’s Prayer
  1. In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes[a](a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian[b] kingdom— in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the Lord given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years.So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.
  2. I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
  3. “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong.We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land.
  4. “Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you.We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, Lord, because we have sinned against you. The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; 10 we have not obeyed the Lordour God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets.11 All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you.
  5. “Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. 12 You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing on us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. 13 Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come on us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. 14 The Lord did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the Lord our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him.
  6. 15 “Now, Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. 16 Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts,turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill.Our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us.
  7. 17 “Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. 18 Give ear, our God, and hear;open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19 Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”
  8. The Seventy “Sevens”
  9. 20 While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lordmy God for his holy hill— 21 while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 He instructed me and said to me, “Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. 23 As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision:
  10. 24 “Seventy ‘sevens’[c]are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish[d]transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.[e]
  11. 25 “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[f]the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. 26 After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.[g] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[h] In the middle of the ‘seven’[i] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple[j] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.[k][l]
  • Daniel’s Vision of a Man
  1. 10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war.[m]The understanding of the message came to him in a vision.
  2. At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.
  3. On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.
  4. I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.
  5. 10 A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. 11 He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.
  6. 12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.14 Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”
  7. 15 While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground and was speechless. 16 Then one who looked like a man[n]touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing before me, “I am overcome with anguish because of the vision, my lord, and I feel very weak.17 How can I, your servant, talk with you, my lord? My strength is gone and I can hardly breathe.”
  8. 18 Again the one who looked like a man touched me and gave me strength. 19 “Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.”
  9. When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.”
  10. 20 So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; 21 but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince. 11 And in the first year of Darius the Mede, I took my stand to support and protect him.)
  11. The Kings of the South and the North
  12. “Now then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will arise in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece. Then a mighty king will arise, who will rule with great power and do as he pleases. After he has arisen, his empire will be broken up and parceled out toward the four winds of heaven. It will not go to his descendants, nor will it have the power he exercised, because his empire will be uprooted and given to others.
  13. “The king of the South will become strong, but one of his commanders will become even stronger than he and will rule his own kingdom with great power.After some years, they will become allies. The daughter of the king of the South will go to the king of the North to make an alliance, but she will not retain her power, and he and his power[o]will not last. In those days she will be betrayed, together with her royal escort and her father[p]and the one who supported her.
  14. “One from her family line will arise to take her place. He will attack the forces of the king of the North and enter his fortress; he will fight against them and be victorious. He will also seize their gods, their metal images and their valuable articles of silver and gold and carry them off to Egypt. For some years he will leave the king of the North alone. Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South but will retreat to his own country. 10 His sons will prepare for war and assemble a great army, which will sweep on like an irresistible flood and carry the battle as far as his fortress.
  15. 11 “Then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North, who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated. 12 When the army is carried off, the king of the South will be filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands, yet he will not remain triumphant. 13 For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a huge army fully equipped.
  16. 14 “In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success. 15 Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand. 16 The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it. 17 He will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South. And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plans[q]will not succeed or help him. 18 Then he will turn his attention to the coastlands and will take many of them, but a commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him. 19 After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more.
  17. 20 “His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. In a few years, however, he will be destroyed, yet not in anger or in battle.
  18. 21 “He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. 22 Then an overwhelming army will be swept awaybefore him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed. 23 After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully, and with only a few people he will rise to power. 24 When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers. He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.
  19. 25 “With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South. The king of the South will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him.26 Those who eat from the king’s provisions will try to destroy him; his army will be swept away, and many will fall in battle. 27 The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time. 28 The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country.
  20. 29 “At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before. 30 Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will lose heart. Then he will turn back and vent his furyagainst the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant.
  21. 31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.
  22. 33 “Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. 34 When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. 35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
  23. The King Who Exalts Himself
  24. 36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.[r]
  25. 40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.41 He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. 42 He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites[s]in submission. 44 But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. 45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at[t] the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.
  26. The End Times
  27. 12 “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise[u]will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”
  28. Then I, Daniel, looked, and there before me stood two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank. One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?”
  29. The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time.[v]When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”
  30. I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”
  31. He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealeduntil the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
  32. 11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.
  33. 13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”

 

(SN: Here we have that issue about the word “of” again. In earlier texts, “The abomination OF desolation” could mean many things. What could abominate a desolation?” I was confused. But now we see the correct phrase underlined above. This abomination that causes desolation is likely a statue, or robotic moving statue, that looks like a god,

satan

or Satan [as in this symbolic photo above from the Satanic temple in Detroit,{more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33682878}] is connected to a computer programmed with artificial intelligence, it speaks to people, might point directly at the person being spoken to in a commanding voice, and scans them as they pass.

Robotics is such even now that robots can point, look at you and follow you with their eyes, blink, and make a conversation, even now with moving mouth and facial “muscles”. I have seen these things working.

Further advanced artificial intelligence could allow this thing to do all of that and be apparently more intelligent than people.  If they don’t have “the mark of the beast” which is likely something like a microchip or laser marker on the bone, possibly an electronic tattoo on their skin (remember The Bible forbids tattoos) they will be arrested and either marked or murdered. To take the mark you must renounce the Christ Jesus. If you refuse to do so, you’ll die. Likely death would come by beheading, which is very quick and painless. For this sacrifice you would gain further eternal reward in The Heavenly Kingdom.

The problem is, you can’t survive without the mark. You are shut out of the entire economic system. Therefore, most people who have disdained all study of things Godly will take the mark or chip willingly. If they do, they are “locked in” to a sentence of eternal condemnation! That’s as bad as any punishment can be!)

Revelation 12 New International Version (NIV)

The Woman and the Dragon

12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon,and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now have come the salvation and the power
    and the kingdom of our God,
    and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
    who accuses them before our God day and night,
    has been hurled down.
11 They triumphed over him
    by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
    as to shrink from death.
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens
    and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
    because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
    because he knows that his time is short.”

13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time,out of the serpent’s reach. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Revelation 17 New International Version (NIV)

Babylon, the Prostitute on the Beast

17 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery:

babylon the great

the mother of prostitutes

and of the abominations of the earth.

I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.

When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.

“This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10 They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great citythat rules over the kings of the earth.”

The material that follows comes from the works of another wise brothers who is asleep now until the dead rise in Christ. He is the first I have seen who ferretted out the characteristics proving that The United States of America is intimately tied to Babylon.

I was on of the first to say (in our modern times, that ear 2018 must be a year of “something monumental” and now it appears the events in our news prove that “the monumental event” would be the beginning of the countdown for the final 10.5 years.

Babylon in some bibles is referred to as “Mystery Babylon.” That is incorrect. It should read mystery Babylon or mysterious Babylon and I view this mysterious Babylon as a geopolitical union and economic system including the USA, England, other British colonies, Europe, and The Vatican.

5TH Column Operations and the Fall of America-Babylon

Feb 28, 2014

Jeremiah 51:2

2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her,

and shall empty her land:

for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.

 

Infiltrate quietly – take up residence within the target country – blend in, reconnoiter your local area, and when the order is given, cause havoc and destruction. You might want to look up the word FANNERS just to educate yourself – so see how accurate the Lord really is. It tells you that our concept of time and space and not the same as the Lords, for He sees all things from the beginning to the end, Alpha and Omega.

There have been many verified reports of foreign troops being brought into America. Chinese, Russian, Belgium and many “non-Mexican” troops are being quietly slipping across our borders and take of their residence in cities all over America. Long ago a woman who was working relief operations along the Mexico-America Border told us that she had seen maps of cities these folks were to go to and silently take up residence there. Numerous reports from Canada have spoken of Russia troops in the Canadian Queensland (National Forest land).

The truth is that America has been encircled and these enemies within and without are now awaiting the call to pounce and destroy this nation and punish the rank corruption and apostasy of the American people. We are surrounded by enemies that not only want to bring us down and slaughter us, they are now within and have infiltrated every level of government and so there is no escape.

You see, we not only kill tiny babies, we are a sick people. VERY SICK, even beyond repair. And we have refused the only one who could heal us. We are to busy, we have this job to do, that job to do, and further, this report must be completed. That field must be sown, and I must watch this football game. There is no end to it. No one has any time for the Lord now. “But I pray every morning and I read a verse of Scripture every night”. Really – wow, that is something!! If true you are a rare bird indeed, a person to be put on the government watch list – and most likely the Lord’s watch list as well – but not for the reason you might think.

But the problem is we WERE declared a Christian nation. The Supreme Court ruled we are a Christian nation TWICE. THAT MAKES IT OFFICIAL, AND THAT MEANS AMERICA CAME UNDER THE LORD’S COVENANT. As long as we obeyed, we got the BLESSINGS OF THE LORD, which you will find in Deuteronomy 28. But you see, we did not obey God and now we have the CURSES, and those curses are now upon us BIG TIME. And they will stay until America-Babylon is TOTALLY DESTROYED and all HER PEOPLE ARE DEAD.

 

Here is one article but it should be believed –

Little Russian Girl when asked: what does your Daddy do that he moved you all here and the girl replied, hes here to shoot and kill Americans

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

By Paul Martin

SteveQuayle.com
Feb 26, 2014

Steve, my mother just called in tears describing her horror story and
validation of foreign troops in Danville, VA. My family farms in NC not
far from Danville, VA and their neighbor (Bob) works in Danville to be near
his family and first born grandchild. Often Bob will watch his
granddaughter who attends school in Danville and brings her and friends
over to my parents farm. Yesterday Bob brought his 2nd grade granddaughter
and her new girlfriend and mother to meet my parents. My mother welcomed
them all as usual but noticed both had accents which made her that more
inquisitive. After a short tour of the farm, looking at some wild deer and
came into the house. Being cordial mom passed out cookies and said I
detect an accent, do you mind if I ask where you were from and the little
girl said they just moved here from Russia. My mother replied, oh thats
along way to come to Virginia, what does your Daddy do that he moved you
all here and the girl replied, he’s here to shoot and kill Americans. The
little girls mother instantly broke down crying, saying its true, grabbed  the daughter and left.

My parents were shocked and while they’ve heard
rumors they never expected to hear this from a child.

The fanners of the Lord are here – 9-11 was a WARNING OF WHAT WOULD SOON COME TO THE UNITED STATES OF BABYLON. Soon these 5th column operatives will awake and kindle massive fires in our cities:

Jer 50:31-34

31 Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee.

32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.

33 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.

34 Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of hosts is his name: he shall throughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.

 

Maybe we are all guilty of selling our heritage for a bowl of pottage. Maybe instead of watching the Super Bowl selling Satan and his agenda, the American people should have read their Bibles. But we know they will not, and we know they will not repent. “We would have healed Babylon, but she would not be healed.” –So it is what it is, is it not?

 

And finally, after the infiltration by the 5th column troops, the slow but steady infiltration of all government levels by people who would sell their own wives to make a buck, and the total and complete apostasy of the Church, well then, LET THE CHAOS BEGIN, LET LOOSE THE DOGS OF WAR, LET AMERICA GO DOWN. God would not be a just God is he allows much more of this to continue. But first, a word of caution and let’s take another look:

Jer 50:33-34

33 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together:

and all that took them captives

held them fast; they refused to let them go.

34 Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of hosts is his name: he shall throughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.

 

I might be wrong, and usually am, but this sounds an awful lot like a ROUNDUP OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS TO ME, it sounds like you would have to have very large and multiple CONCENTRATION CAMPS to hold all of these people – like perhaps FEMA CAMPS, maybe?

Could you perhaps then tie all of this back to the FUSION CENTERS, THE NSA COLLECTIONS, TO HOMELAND SECURITY, FEMA, and lots and lots of hollow point bullets and tank type vehicles, and all of that type of stuff? Then of course all of this goes back to Psalm Two and what all of this is about in the first place. The people of this planet really do have a hatred for the ONE TRUE GOD. It shows up all the time. Of course, as Psalm Two says, God laughs at them and then destroys them all.

So something is coming upon America very soon now. Financial collapse, false flag, the removal of the true Bride of Christ? Who knows, but I think we are all going to find out real soon.

Is the Revelation STAR SIGN on September 23rd, 2017 on the Feast of Trumpets is a BIG CLUE? As Ed Sullivan would say, IS A REALLY, REALLY BIG SHEW about to occur?   And if we actually supposed to come back this way  1260 days to April 11th, 2014?

Well then, that might mean the ONE HOUR OF TAKING AMERICA IS ABOUT TO BEGIN, for the ONE HOUR is defined in Revelation exactly 42 months, 1260 days or a time, times and half a time, and that means that the first half of the Tribulation Period is all about the taking of America, the RISE OF ANTICHRIST/LUCIFER! That means the rounding up of all dissenters and putting them in the waiting FEMA/ARMY/NORTHCOM/HOMELAND SECURITY/ ILLUMINATI TORTURE AND DEATH CAMPS. After all, you are an enemy combatant, exempt from Geneva codes of conduct.

Meanwhile of course, the Christian prophetic ministries will tell you, for the most part, that America is NOT IN Bible prophecy at all, and that nothing bad will come to this God fearing Christian and good nation of ours. I have often wondered how these folks can actually think that, but again, it is what it is, isn’t it?

Of course, you have to understand these rich folks that rule over the world do not really think there is a God who is watching all of this. They say that NOBODY SEES THEM as they plot their little antichrist plots. But He who created their eyes, does see. And He who created their ears does hear. And he who created their puny little brains does Himself think. So the final conflict is almost here. The GREAT WAR OF ALL WARS. I am not speaking here of WWIII, but the FINAL CONFLICT. You know the one that brings down the fallen angels NWO, and their arrival and their new golden New Age world civilization – well it is what it is, and maybe it does not matter what the definition of is, is. 

For God Himself does say in Psalm Two that HE WILL SET JESUS CHRIST ON THE THRONE AS KING OF ALL KINGS. He even warns the blind and dumb RICH MEN, the LEADERS AND RULERS and the MASSES OF THE PEOPLE who imagine a VAIN THING that Jesus Christ will be installed at the end of it all. But who reads the Bible anyhow, and even those that do, who obeys it? VERY FEW. VERY, VERY, VERY FEW.

Go figure!

No one messes with the USA. NO ONE. For awhile of course Lucifer, (aka Obama) did nothing, letting ISIL/ISIS build numbers, power and speed. Maybe there was method to his madness, as they say. Perhaps Obama may be appearing to be on the side of the Americans for a change, but then again, IN REALITY, maybe he is not. Suddenly Obama changes methods, and it appears to be a Martha Stewart “Good Thing”, because, after all, the November elections are upcoming. Americans are now united – let’s kill all of these horrible ISIS/ISIL people, get rid of them once and for all. Who are they anyhow, who stirred them up? Three guess, and the first two don’t count. Seems odd how they rose up out of nowhere just before November. Maybe we will see some sort of October surprise, as the Democrats are saying. Maybe the CIA or NSA and all those folks bent upon a new world order are behind all of it – you know, anything is possible these days…but do you think? At the same time of course, if you did not notice, the call is going out concerning “radicalized Americans” and that is where the REAL terror threat actually lies, say the Powers That Be. I wonder where this is leading? Of course, according to Homeland Security and Fusion centers, if you voted for Ron Paul, believe in the Bill of Rights, believe in secure borders, motherhood and apple pie, well, you better be careful because you are a “radicalized American”. Actually that would be true nowadays, as things really have changed, and apple pie is out, and grandma? Well, she doesn’t know anything anyhow, just a useless eater by now…but when Gram dies, let’s take her money and property she so wisely saved for herself in the last times of life… wonder why she died so quickly…have not a clue, but then… People need to realize that the Psalm Two war is real and getting nastier by the day. “How dare you dissent! How dare you raise your voice in protest! How dare you criticize ANYONE for ANYTHING.” Yes, tolerate everything, even murder if there is what appears to be, a good cause. The concept of sin is fast fading away. “People are OK, you are OK, everyone is OK”. But what if… Habakkuk 2

 

JADE HELM, RUMORS IN THE LAND, JEREMIAH AND THE SUICIDE OF AMERICA

Jade Helm operations by the US Military have stirred up quite a bit of controversy that has spilled over to mainstream media, with Fox News speaking of how “right wing” conspiracy people are giving out warning of an impending martial law takeover of the United States, essentially mocking them and more or less saying these people are conspiracy fruitcakes, and this operation is normal for the military. The problem with all of this is that even those conservatives are warning about Jade Helm never mention the Bible, Bible prophecy or who America really is as a latter-day player of the end times. It is obvious that our Federal Government agencies have an intense hatred for Bible prophecy, witnessed by the release of the FBI’s “Project Megiddo” released on October 20th, 1999, and it was a report of DOMESTIC TERRORISM in the United States, and then that was followed up by numerous other reports targeting the “right-wing”. That report basically concluded that Christians who believed in the Bible, or Bible prophecy were to be considered to be possible “enemies of the state”. Then along came the false flag 9-11 attack and the rise of Homeland Security, multiple laws passed by Congress, notably the infamous “Patriot Act”, followed by Fusion Centers and numerous other “reports” that were issued, all directed towards the conservative right. Then of course we have our NDAA’s, America is a “war zone” and many “executive orders” that all point in one direction. If one follows all of these unconstitutional laws, which actually have no legal authority whatsoever because they so flagrantly violate the Constitution, one can only conclude that a communist, Marxist, Fabian Socialistic takeover was in the works, laid out long ago and prophesied in the Book of Revelation, Jeremiah, Isaiah and Daniel in the Old Testament. Psalm 2 A rumor shall be heard throughout the land IN ONE YEAR. This fearful rumor is heard in ONE YEAR, and then in ANOTHER YEAR.

This is a bitter, but harsh truth for a nation of hardhearted, stiffnecked, deceitful hearted, desperately wicked and rebellious people. Unfortunately, we do not want to know the truth or be corrected, because it is easier to believe that God is love and He loves ALL people, regardless.

But, the Lord warns us again in Isaiah 47, that this nation’s nakedness (shame, disgrace) will be uncovered, that America-Babylon will no be called The Lady(Queen) of all the kingdoms. He has given America into the hand of the foreigners/strangers that will shew us no mercy as we the nation have heavily laid a yoke upon others in time past; so shall it be done unto us. The Lord reminds us that we were given to our pleasures and idols dwelling carelessly and living as though we are gods and there is none else besides us. But, evil will come upon us and we not know when or where they rise and destruction will come upon us and there will be no way of escape. As a nation from our youth, we will look to the astrologer, stargazer, prognosticators and multitude of counsel, but they will not be able to save us.
God warned us in Jer. 51:6 to, “Flee out of the midst of Babylon-America, 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 recompense.”

Have we missed the window of time to come out of, to flee out of the midst that our soul be saved (regenerated)? Do we yet have time?Have we made ourselves ready as the bride?

America will not repent.
I believe we are in dire straights from many points of view but I am wary of opinions by Q.
He is the one who tells us to hoard gold. The Bible speaks against doing this, saying people will throw their gold and silver into the street. So I question stories that come from him. I can’t believe the Russians would be so careless as to let this girl and mom loose to talk to strangers. It’s possible it’s true. If so, they have come to the point where carelessness no longer matters.

Not all shall be taken captive however as some from the House of Israel together with some from the House of Judah shall escape to the land of Israel – quoting Jeremiah again (50:4) –

“In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their God.”

This is an important verse as it is the first mention of the return of the House of Israel from the Assyrian exile circa 700 BC. The prodigal son shall return.

The Broad at Wall of Babylon [NYC]
shall be leveled to the ground,
and her high gates
shall be burned with fire.
The peoples labor for nothing,
and the nations weary themselves only for fire.”

couldn’t have said it better myself.. THEY ARE GOING TO BE IN FOR A VERY RUDE AWAKENING ALL THE MOCKERS AND SCOFFERS AND HATERS OF YAHWEH. THEY WILL BE CRUSHED TO POWDER. WHEN THE ROCK FALLS ON THEM..

And it wont be because they were not warned..or because others did not cry out for them day and night..Just like Israel so is the HARLOT..

And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.

3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.

4 He then said to me: “Son of man, go now to the people of Israel and speak my words to them. 5 You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and strange language, but to the people of Israel— 6 not to many peoples of obscure speech and strange language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely if I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you. 7 But the people of Israel are not willing to listen to you because they are not willing to listen to me, for all the Israelites are hardened and obstinate. 8 But I will make you as unyielding and hardened as they are. 9 I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint. Do not be afraid of them or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.”

America Babylon = Judas Iscariot And in the same way that the Son of man was betrayed by Judas Iscariot is the same way the US has become a whore sellout to the leaders of this world….all for money. We might want to read Daniel 9 and pray over these verses as Daniel did as he interceded for Babylon (of old). Daniel was a humble man and could’ve easily pointed his finger to those around him, but he didn’t. Instead, he wrote:

“WE have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: Neither have WE hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.” Dan 9:5-6

Read all of Chapter 9 and as you do, think about America Babylon the Great and all the people of this land. Yes, there’s wickedness here as well as just about everywhere in the world, but just as Stewart wrote, the US DECLARED itself to be a CHRISTIAN nation. Christians need to understand that THIS is what is meant by TAKING THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN. The US has taken God’s name in vain, as do the multitude of believers who profess themselves ‘Christians’. It does not say that we have ‘spoken’ His name in vain, but that we’ve TAKEN His name in vain (look up the definition – it has nothing whatsoever to do with the pronunciation of His name). The False Prophets of today have cunningly twisted this verse and redefine it as meaning ‘to say His name’ and thus that’s why we’ve been seeing many believers go to such ridiculous lengths in an attempt to ‘say’ His Holy name correctly. These people have been so greatly deceived by the false prophets that they haven’t a clue as to what this verse actually means.

As a result, many who say they are Christians and continue to do evil will suffer eternal punishment. We see the MANY false prophets talked about in Mt 7:15, Mt 24:11, Mt 24:24, Lk 6:26, 2Pet 2:1, and 1Jn 4:1 and their deceived followers in Mt 24:5, Mk 13:6, and Lk 21:8. We see their judgment in Mt 7:23, Mt 25:41, and Lk 13:27.

It’s actually pretty simple when one follows what the Lord says and we don’t get caught up in the snares of lies and fables. Most pastors today simply regurgitate everything they learned from their Bible College or Bible Seminary. Those schools are nothing more than man teaching man, not the Holy Spirit teaching man!

ANYBODY, and I mean anybody, can become a pastor today…and most of them (if not all) are now the false prophets that Jesus was speaking about in Mt 24:11. If anyone thinks these false prophets are men like Jim Jones and David Koresh, then ask yourself these questions. How can two men possibly be referred to as the MANY (which means MAJORITY OF) in Mt 24:11? Also explain to me where you witnessed that ‘ALL’ men SPOKE WELL OF THEM’ (Mt 7:15). But ALL men have spoken well of men like Billy Graham, the Pope, and many others. These men even made the front cover of Time magazine. Do you think Jesus would’ve ever made the cover of Time Magazine? Could it be possible you may have misunderstood what Jesus meant by ‘false prophets’? Remember that God’s people are DESTROYED for lack of knowledge (understanding). Hos 4:6.

If you’d like to study the truth about what God meant about ‘taking’ His name in vain, study Ps 139:20 and Pro 30:9.

Thanks again Stewart for your article. Excellent info!

“…it sounds like you would have to have very large and multiple CONCENTRATION CAMPS to hold all of these people – like perhaps FEMA CAMPS, maybe?”
FEMA camps. There are over 200 of them built by Dick Chaney’s company Halliburton. A nice old Jewish man like me would never have guessed. I’ve seen one in Cape Coral, Florida. The Cape government needed income and lobbied the army for a camp. They were excited when the news came they might have an army base to improve business. The Cape area was “ground zero” for the housing crisis. So now you can ride along Diplomat Parkway and see this huge empty base set way back from the road in among trees, surrounded by fencing. I got chills every time I passed. That’s why I’m abroad now. “Come out of her My People” He said, and I took Him seriously!

Your chart, other’s I’ve seen and my own calculations all agree within a year or so. September 2014 we have the first blood moon. I think soon after we’ll have a Middle East war and Damascus will be rubble when it’s over. I hope for a Rapture soon after and the biggest war you never wanted to imagine will be coming in between 2018 and 2022, complete with biological weapons, economic chaos, horrid weather, earth quakes, super volcanoes, at least a third of the ocean dying, crop failures like no modern has ever experience, and WE who love God will say, “Let your justice be done! I said I was willing to suffer just to see an end to this horror. Kindle your righteous indignation and let us have an end to this! An end to deceptive Darkness. The Return of The Christ and light to this world.

Psalm 2
New International Version (NIV)
Psalm 2
1 Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the LORD and against his anointed, saying,
3 “Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 “I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”
7 I will proclaim the LORD’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will break them with a rod of iron[b];
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

I understand lately the Vatican got their treaty to control part of Jerusalem. A peace treaty to protect Jerusalem and Israel won’t be far behind. I cannot find any fault in your logic and several other scholars I’ve read see it the same or very closely the same way. Thanks so much for your writing. It fills in my Sabbath perfectly.
Kind regards

Oblivious To Being Oblivious

OREGON, AGENDA 21 & SOMETHING EVIL IS COMING

Why the Oregon standoff may well be some sort of implanted false flag, it is clear it is all designed, as was Oklahoma City, to paint the “patriots” as idiots to the unthinking masses while the real truths behind it lay buried in the dust.

The Bureau of Land Management = BLM is totally corrupt and a criminal operation, so what else is new in regards to government agencies totally out of control? Is the BLM willfully attempting to start an armed revolution? Most likely, as they are burning up fences, buildings, cattle and doing untold damage to ranches to drive them off their lands. All filmed, all proven to be true but who cares? Evil cometh because good people allow it.

The BLM, like other such agencies, is actually engaged in the treason of implementing the United Nations Agenda 21/30 lawlessly. It is that simple. That is the foundation upon all of this rests. All of this is instigated by the communist/Marxist/socialist United Nations, the modern tower of Babel, where its leaders worship a stone in the meditation room.

The America people lost their constitution a long time ago actually, and what is happening in Oregon is a set-up, using nice people, using people who really do love their country and who want nothing but to be left alone and justice to prevail. Media flips it via its propaganda machine so that no matter what these folks do, it is all against them, and the beginning to label good honest folks as domestic terrorists. This has been coming for a long time when the FBI released their Southern Poverty Center guided Project Megiddo report.

The Bible speaks about the people of CNN/FOX/NBC etc. as “those who love to make lies”, and their fate is not at all pleasant.

How is justice going to prevail when you have a totally corrupt judiciary? Sheriff Departments sold out to the Feds and UN? Media that only knows how to spin lies, and cover over the real facts? America must die, folks, and there is no way around it, as all of this is part and parcel to the Judgment of the Lord against a godless nation just as Deuteronomy said thousands of years ago! How does a nation expect to survive when it has collectively turned its back upon its creator that blessed them?
Fallen humanity is still fallen humanity, and there is only one way to escape that as well, but no one wants to hear about it anymore, so why bother? The salvation gospel of today is such a horrific joke it is amazing that modern Christians are unable to see it for what it is! Nothing could be more obvious, nothing could be more in YOUR FACE OBVIOUS, yet they are OBLIViOUS.

What the government and masses of people do not understand is all of this was foretold thousands of years ago in the Good Book under the heading of prophecy against the United States, AKA Babylon The Great. People ought to read it sometime so they know why they are prisoners of Agenda 21/30/ Homeland Security, FEMA Camps, Jade Helm ad nauseam. Seems like they will have plenty of time in their local FEMA jails to catch up on this sort of thing.

It is what it is, and it must go down as the Good Book said it must. The governments, now totally out of control say “who sees us?” Thinking that all of their evil plans, done in secret are not known, but in reality have been known for thousands of years. There is one that sees it all, warned it was coming, and it is now here falling upon the apostates of America/Babylon.

I was amazed at so few people commented on my last post Oblivious, for very few people ever speak of infringement or even seem to know that the definition of it actually is. It is not just the 2nd Amendment, it is the entire Bill of Rights and the rest of the Constitution itself!! The American people are soon going to come face to face with a tyranny unlike anything ever seen before, far worse than Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and others of their ilk. Having their rights all gone, faced with torture and death camps for all that protest, it is the horrific end of a once noble concept, destroyed by the people themselves, including of course, its leaders.

The end of America-Babylon is now close at hand. Protests and cries to the contrary will not alter it in any was shape or manner. Her fate is written in the stars and will not change. When America goes because of high treason within, nuclear attacks from without, and she falls, the other nations of the world fall as well, and then the end comes.

“Alas, Alas, we would have healed Babylon, but she would not be healed.”

Cry for Babylon, weep and wail for her, for her sins have reached into the heavens…the stench of her vileness has ignited a wrath against her, and down she comes, with a mighty thud. Alas for Babylon, such a great nation, the hammer of the whole Earth has come to naught… How could it be? Alas, thou art caught, Oh Mighty Babylon, thou are caught when thou was not aware…

Our leaders, our rulers and authorities will wish they had never been born. Unaware of the snare laid down against them, they are walking into it OBLIVIOUS and they will be caught. Perhaps at that time, Obama and all his minions will become aware of what the word infringement actually does mean…

“Here lies the body of the US of A
Who died defending its right OF way…
It was right, dead right, as it sped along,
But it’s just as dead, as if it were wrong…”

Comments welcome
