The Book of Revelation tells a story that’s so frightening many people refuse to enter into that story. Also, the story has so many metaphorical phrases and descriptions it’s very difficult to interpret the underlying meanings and descriptions. But, with many repetitious readings, and with much referenced research, it’s possible to understand the primary story; that warning so important it had to be written. It was written by Apostle John with words and visions from Christ.
Many people don’t read Revelation because of the difficulty of interpretation. There aren’t many clear and obvious clues to interpret the codes and metaphors that reveal the vivid story.
Others refuse to read Revelation because they believe it doesn’t pertain to a real earthly event but only to something relating to salvation and the hereafter; as in a personal struggle with oneself. However, after much timely research, cross-referencing, and finding some important time lines the story becomes ‘crystal clear’ and very enlightening. To begin; does this ‘crystal clear’ itself have any meaning? Let’s interpret this code.
In the first chapter of Revelation John explains how he is approached from behind by a voice ‘as of a trumpet’ saying, “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last; and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia, unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.” Then verses 18 and 19 explain who made these comments and His commandment to John:
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Write these things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.”
John has his instructions to write these things, but how does he write the things ‘which shall be hereafter?’ The next two chapters give the words John writes to the seven churches in Asia (now Turkey;) then the details on how things will be written about ‘hereafter’ are explained in Chapter 4, beginning with the first verse:
“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, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2) And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” More descriptions are given in the next verses, then verse 6 gives the first clue of seeing those things which will be hereafter:
“And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7) And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.” Then verse 8 speaks more about their eyes:
“And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within; and they rest not day and night.”
These verses are enough to explain how John would be shown things that would be hereafter. These four beasts around the throne had eyes before and behind that allowed them to see what had happened in the past, and what was to happen in the future. And before the throne was a sea of glass like crystal; which allowed those four beasts to see clearly. Perhaps this is the source of the modern statement; ‘clear as crystal.’ But how were these four beasts to show John things hereafter; in the future? The answer begins in Chapter 6 with the introduction of the four horses of the Apocalypse.
The introduction begins in Chapter 5, as the one sitting on the throne is holding a book with seven seals. There is despair because no one is capable of loosening the seven seals; until finally one was worthy to open the book. Verse 5 explains: “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” That prophesy of the vision John saw ‘hereafter’ began when Christ opened the seven seals; especially the first four. This begins in the first verse of Chapter 6:
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2) And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”
This invitation to ‘come and see’ was an invitation to come and see the future. This verse in this section does not give all the information that’s to be seen; it acts only as a table of contents that introduces the actions to come later in Revelation by that rider to enter warfare and to conquer. This is the first clue that there will be warfare between good and evil; and the rider of ‘good’ will vanquish evil in the end. The beast that introduced this rider is the one like a lion; which suggests this rider will conquer. His evil opponent, the rider of the red horse is introduced; as in a table of contents, in the next verse, 3:
“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast (another beast with eyes before and behind) say, Come and see. 4) And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another; and there was given unto him a great sword.”
This rider of the red horse is the evil opponent of the rider of the white horse. The beast that introduced this rider is the one like a calf. This suggests this rider of the red horse will be slaughtered by the rider of that white horse. This rider of the red horse went forth to take peace from the earth which is totally opposed to God’s plan for humanity. This rider of the red horse, this product of that red dragon Satan, will be totally destroyed by the rider of the white horse, Christ; with His earthly followers.
These first two introductions of riders on the white horse and the red horse are the table of contents announcing that the battle between these two riders will be detailed further in later chapters of Revelation. This story of Good defeating Evil is one of the two main purposes for Revelation. These two riders will be defined more in other chapters of this book; but for now let’s explain the introductions by the two other beasts with eyes before and behind to understand their purpose. That continues in verse 5 of Chapter 6:
And when he (the Lion of Juda) had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast (that had a face as a man) say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6) And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”
This rider, introduced with the beast having the face of a man, represents world commerce; especially food and subsistence items. This problem will become so great that it will be identified as the ‘Tribulation’ period.
As explained later in Revelation, many people will die of starvation and thirst during this time. This shortage of food and subsistence items will be caused by a lack of shipping and transportation on ‘the seas.’ Many ships and other transportation modes will be destroyed during the warfare, thereby preventing needed items, including food, from being shipped to high density population areas where citizens do not grow their own food.
This new era of globalization will cause shortages of food and other necessary items throughout the world. For example, many areas that grow much of the world’s supply of food might be void of vehicles, tools, repair parts, and accessories needed to grow and cultivate those food products. This beast with the face of a man represents this challenge to basic survival.
The fourth horse, the pale horse, was introduced by the fourth beast. This was the beast described in 4:7 as like a flying eagle. This description continues from Chapter 6, verse 7:
“And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8) And I looked, and behold a pale horse; and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
This beast like a flying eagle encompasses the whole earth; his great wings carry him everywhere to report the actions of Death and Hell. Even people not involved with direct warfare will be subject to death by violence. Many of these deaths will be from scavengers seeking food and other subsistence items for their survival. Also, during this time, law enforcement will be minimal, if at all. Many dangerous blood-thirsty gangs will roam freely to create their horror. Also, many of those addicted to drugs will threaten others in their attempt to get valuables to trade for drugs. No one will be safe.
And, as stated; many will die from the beasts of the earth. No, this does not mean lions and tigers. This refers to the unseen and little noticed beasts: mosquitoes, ticks, wasps, and snakes. It even includes those little invisible beasts such as bacteria and viruses; even infections from pricks and scratches. These are the beasts, unseen, for which antibiotics and other medicines will not be available for protection or cure. Death from this rider of the pale horse will come from any source; especially unseen sources. That eagle soars over a wide space.
These four beasts showed themselves to John to introduce the four horses of the Apocalypse. These appeared when the first four of the seven seals were opened by Christ, before God’s throne. There were also three other seals opened, but they were not introduced by beasts. John simply observed from his vision when the seals were opened. These will be briefly described next.
“And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.”
Then those souls asked their Lord how long it would be until He would judge and avenge their blood on them that dwell on the earth. He answered that they would be avenged when their brothers would be killed as they were; that they should ‘rest yet for a little season.’ He was referring to those that would be killed in His name during the Tribulation period. Then John described what he saw when the sixth seal was opened as explained in verse 12:
“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13) And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”
Although not clear, it seems some physical event will occur that will be a warning to the forces of evil, which will be defined as Islam, that their strength and force are threatened with deadly results. This event could be an earthquake as stated, or it could even be nuclear weapons on designated areas. Those ‘stars of heaven’ could represent an aerial bombardment signaling the beginning of terrible events to follow. Verse 17 gives an introduction of events to follow:
“For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
Then, the opening of the seventh seal, Chapter 8, first verse, begins an even more ominous warning of things to come:
“And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2) And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.”
These seven trumpets were the trumpets that would announce warfare and other disasters when the ‘great day of his wrath’ arrives. These events will be described in the chapter titled: The Seven Trumpets, but before we go there we must explore the reason for God’s wrath against this evil; Satan and Islam. That will be described in this next chapter.
This next chapter explains how and why God’s patience for this evil comes to an end. It’s because the survival of humanity, civil humanity, is at stake. This horror of Islam against God’s humanity must come to an end.
Satan Challenges God
Satan didn’t take too kindly to being thrown down from Heaven by Michael and his angels when Satan tried to increase his power in Heaven. This is described in Chapter 12, beginning with verse 7:
“And there was a war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels; 8) And prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in heaven.9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Of course the other angels were thankful when they cast Satan out of heaven, but warned of hardships for those on earth. This was spoken in verse 12:
“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” Then verse 17 explains the results of the devil being cast down to the earth:
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, (Christianity) and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
And, when he came down to earth, he made a promise against God in heaven; that God’s time in heaven would be no more. This is explained in Chapter 10. This is from another of John’s visions, beginning with the first verse:
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2) And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth. 5) And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6) And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.”
Satan was really angry when he was removed from his place in heaven; so angry in fact that he looked up at heaven and swore to end God’s time there. But, in this reading there’s an important item that’s often overlooked or not understood. That item is the little book Satan held in his hand. John did give a brief description of that little book, but the real destination of that book was not clearly described. John complied with Christ’s voice to take the little book from Satan’s hand and ‘eat it up.’ The result is given in verse 10:
“And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand (Satan) and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey; and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.”
This was Satan’s direct challenge to God; to remove God’s time in heaven. That challenge was so harsh and direct that obviously God knew he couldn’t let this challenge go without taking a due course. So, He told John what to do to begin actions to defeat Satan’s threat. Verse 11 states:
“And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”
John was an old man at this time, considered to be in his nineties. When he was released from Patmos, he returned to Ephesus where he had preached and retired there as a very old man, possibly near a hundred years old. Therefore, the likely consideration is that John was told to prophesy through this writing that was labeled and published as the Book of Revelation. John could not have gone to ‘many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.’ His writing lives on to continue that prophesy.
But what happened to that ‘little book’ in John’s vision? Since that book was there in the presence of God and Satan it must surely have some great significance. It does; it appears again approximately seven hundred years later.
The articles at this link give a great suggestion that Muhammad was presented with that little book while he contemplated in the cave of Hira, near Mecca. This was the beginning of Satan’s dastardly plan to destroy God’s time in heaven; it was the beginning of Islam. Satan approached Muhammad with that little book. Muhammad was later convinced it was the angel Gabriel; not Satan:
To Read or Recite? That is the Question! Was Muhammad Really Illiterate? by Sam Shamoun:
“The vast majority of Muslims have been taught to believe that the historical Muhammad was illiterate and therefore incapable of producing the Quran. The problem with such a claim is that it flies in the face of the Quran which actually indicates that Muhammad could read. After all, the following verses commanded Muhammad to read:
Read! (Iqra) In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists.)
Read! (Iqra) And your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught (the writing) by the pen.
The first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)], S. 96:1, 3-4 Hilali-Khan. The reference to the pen makes it rather apparent that Muhammad was being ordered to read something written, not simply to recite words which were uttered to him.
In fact, the Quran says that Allah will make Muhammad read the Quran so that he won’t forget it:
“We shall make thee read (Sanuqri-oka) (O Muhammad) so that thou shalt not forget.” S. 87:6 Pickthall; Other places where Muhammad is commanded to read the Quran include:
“When you read the Quran (qarata al-qurana), you shall seek refuge in GOD from Satan the rejected. S. 16:98 Khalifa.
When you read the Quran (qarata al-qurana), we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier. S. 17:45 Khalifa. A Quran that we have released slowly, in order for you to read it (litaqraahu) to the people over a long period, although we sent it down all at once.” S. 17:106 Khalifa. “And lo! it is a revelation of the Lord of the Worlds, Which the True Spirit hath brought down Upon thy heart, that thou mayst be (one) of the warners, In plain Arabic speech.
And lo! It is in the Scriptures of the men of old. Is it not a token for them that the doctors of the Children of Israel know it? And if We had revealed it unto one of any other nation than the Arabs, And he had read it (Faqaraahu) unto them, they would not have believed in it.”
S. 26:192-199 Pickthall: “Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. GOD has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read (faiqraoo) what you can of the Quran.
He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of GOD’s provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of GOD. You shall read (faiqraoo) what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salat),give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend GOD a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at GOD far better and generously rewarded.
And implore GOD for forgiveness. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. 73:20 Khalifaand, when the Koran (al-quranu) is read (quria) to them, do not adore? S. 84:21
All of these references strongly indicate that Muhammad had access to a manuscript from which he could read to the people. Otherwise, what would he be reading from? Lest a Muslim claim that the above texts do not necessarily imply that Muhammad was reading an actual book since there was no Quranic manuscript for him to read, note what the following passage states: “Those who disbelieve say: “This (the Qur’an) is nothing but a lie that he (Muhammad SAW) has invented, and others have helped him at it, so that they have produced an unjust wrong (thing) and a lie.”
And they say: “Tales of the ancients, which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon.” S. 25:4-5 Hilali-Khan Not only did Muhammad have the Quran written down, showing that he had access to an actual manuscript which he could read, the Quran even refers to pure pages that Muhammad was reading to the people: A messenger from Allah, reading purified pages.
S. 69:19 Shakir People will be given a book or record to read on the Day of Judgment. Or thou have a house of gold; or thou ascend up into heaven, and even then we will put no faith in thine ascension till thou bring down for us a book that we can read.
Say (O Muhammad): My Lord be Glorified! Am I aught save a mortal messenger? S. 17:93Pickthall; The unbelievers want Muhammad to bring a book from heaven to read. The foregoing examples plainly demonstrate that the Arabic verb iqra means also “to read,” not merely “to recite,” and provide evidence that Muhammad was able to read and was in fact reading from a book which was in his possession.
In order to defend Muhammad’s illiteracy some Muslims will try to argue that the verb iqra doesn’t necessarily mean to read but can also refer to reciting. They will often appeal to the hadith literature to support their premise: Narrated ‘Aisha:(the mother of the faithful believers) The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah’s Apostle was in the form of good dreams which came true like bright day light, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in seclusion in the cave of Hira where he used to worship (Allah alone) continuously for many days before his desire to see his family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay and then come back to (hiswife) Khadija to take his food like-wise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him and asked him to read.
The Prophet replied, “I do not know how to read.” The Prophet added, “The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read.
Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read, but again I replied, ‘I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?’ Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and then released me and said, Read in the name of your Lord, who has created (all that exists) has created man from a clot. Read!
And your Lord is the Most Generous.” (96.1, 96.2, 96.3) Then Allah’s Apostle returned with the Inspiration and with his heart beating severely.
Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3: There are a couple of problems with this report. First, this contradicts the testimony of the Quran which conclusively proves that Muhammad could and was reading an actual book. Second, the foregoing hadith is rather strange since the spirit is asking Muhammad to read even though he has no book or manuscript in his hand for him to read from! Moreover, didn’t the spirit know that Muhammad couldn’t read? If so then why does he ask Muhammad three consecutive times to read when he clearly knew he couldn’t? End of articles.
Islam claims that Muhammad was visited in that cave by the angel Gabriel. However, in the beginning Muhammad did not claim it was Gabriel; and the angel didn’t say who he was. It was Muhammad’s wife’s cousin who ‘knew something about Jews and Christians’ and convinced Muhammad it was Gabriel.
Is it even reasonable to believe or even imagine Gabriel visited Muhammad to convince him he was higher on God’s order than Jesus Christ? Muhammad and the Islam religion that followed do not recognize Jesus as the Son of God. Gabriel’s other appearances were to visit Mary and her cousin Elizabeth to tell them the good news about the upcoming births of their children; Jesus and John the Baptist. His other visit was to interpret a vision to Daniel.
It was not Gabriel who visited Muhammad in that Cave of Hira. It was Satan, himself; still promoting his little book that was ‘sweet in the mouth, but bitter in the belly.’
Satan visited, still carrying that ‘little book’ in his hand that later became the Koran. It was to give Muhammad great power; it was sweet in the mouth. How Muhammad got that great power is explained in Chapter 13 which will be analyzed next. Before we go to Chapter 13, however, we will make a brief analysis of Chapter 12, which basically introduces Chapter 13.
Satan Creates Islam
Two great purposes are served by the information in Chapter 12. First, it introduces the beginning of Christianity. Second, it gives a clear and indisputable time line that ties Satan directly to Islam whose purpose and charge is to destroy Christianity. The first verse introduces Christianity, described as a woman:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; 2) And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”
These two short verses introduce many concepts. First, ‘pained to be delivered’ expresses the persecution of Jews and believers of the coming Messiah, Jesus. They were tormented and crucified for many years before and after Jesus was born. They were openly persecuted until approximately 350 AD. The words ‘clothed with the sun’ refers to the brightness of His coming. Then, the reference to the moon under her feet, written 700 years before the event, refers to the moon god of Mecca. This moon god was the beginning foundation of Islam. The ‘crown of twelve stars’ obviously refers to the twelve apostles of Jesus, of which John was one of those twelve apostles.
Then, verse 3 begins the introduction of Satan, who comes down to earth to persecute that woman, Christianity. It begins:
“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4) And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”
Again, this is a relatively short verse that introduces many things. Clearly, this red dragon is Satan; having seven heads, ten horns and seven crowns. This will be explained when we move into Chapter 13, but briefly this refers to the seven continents upon which Satan sits; ten horns of nations that support Islam, and seven crowns of leaders totally dedicated to Islam. The third part of the stars is explained in verse 9 which says, “He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
This certainly suggests that a third of the angels in heaven supported Satan when he battled against Michael and his angels, who kicked them out of heaven. The words, ‘for to devour her child as soon as it was born’ was the action by King Herod to destroy Jesus as soon as he was born; or within two years of his birth. This was the action identified as ‘The Massacre of the Innocents.’
Verse 5 confirms that this newborn was Jesus. The woman, she, refers to the religion Christianity:
“And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.”
The next verse, verse 6, begins the code to unlock the time line and the sequence of events that reveal the story in Revelation. This is the code that explains many of the metaphors and examples that heretofore have been so difficult to understand. It sets the basis for the period to follow about ‘time, times, and half a time:’
“And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”
This time corresponds to three and a half years; or ‘time, times, and half a time.’ This event refers to the time Mary and Joseph fled with Jesus into Egypt when they were warned by an angel to take Jesus to safety. They stayed in Egypt until the death of Herod, then returned to Nazareth when Jesus was between four and five years old.
The next few verses are those that explain the expulsion of Satan from heaven by Michael and his angels. Then verse 13 gives the result of that expulsion:
“And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.”
Then verse 14 gives the key to unlock the greatest code of time and events in Revelation. It’s an event that happened three hundred and fifty years (time, and times, and half a time) after the birth of Christ:
“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
Research makes this time and event clue as ‘clear as crystal.’ Christianity (that woman) continued to be persecuted for three hundred and fifty years after the birth of Christ. And, at that time, Rome was divided between two areas; the east and the west. King Constantine was leader of the Western region.
‘Two wings of a great eagle’ is a metaphor for Constantine the Great; since Rome is identified by an eagle with outstretched wings, and Constantine was ruler of Rome at that time. He ruled the western part of the empire until the Battle at Milvian Bridge which allowed him to reunite the Roman Empire. Then, he became known as Constantine the Great.
He won the Battle at Milvian Bridge after complying with a vision in the sun that told him to win the battle with the Christian banner. He had his soldiers paint the Christian cross on their shields before the battle. He then adopted Christianity, and formed the Roman Catholic Church about 350 AD. That begins the time clue of ‘time, times, and half a time.’ His mother became Saint Helena.
After protection by Rome for another ‘time, times, and half a time’ another major event occurred that again threatened Christianity. That brings the time line to 700 AD. That’s the approximate time that Islam was firmly established after Muhammad’s death in 632 AD. Satan again attacked the woman Christianity through Islam, but failed to destroy the woman. Then the last verse in Chapter 12 states the results:
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
The introduction of the real and pure beast of Revelation, the purpose for the writing of Revelation, begins in Chapter 13. This describes his arrival and his power source; which was that Satan who was wroth with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed. In this scene, John is speaking from a vision:
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” Verse 2 continues: “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” This is the universal view of the beast, including its great influence.
The word ‘sand’ in this verse makes a clear delineation to the connotation of the word ‘sea.’ In many cases throughout Revelation the word sea refers to the sea of mankind, or the sea of humanity. In this case by including the word sand John is viewing from a physical world view of those seven heads rising up. Other verses refer to them as mountains.
In this case this description refers to continents; the whole world. John is expressing the idea that this beast will be influential world-wide. The described ten horns suggest war or war-like; the crowns upon those ten horns suggest these will be ten nations. Therefore, these ten nations controlled by the beast will be antagonistic and dangerous to peaceful humanity. But what about that name of blasphemy upon his heads?
The entire concept of Islam is formed by and based upon blasphemy; possibly even the greatest blasphemy. Islam does not recognize Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Islam even goes further than that denunciation of Christ. Islam is based on the concept that Muhammad is higher in God’s realm than is Jesus. Islam considers Jesus as only one of the minor prophets such as Moses. Yes; Islam is guided by blasphemy upon his seven heads. Islam is that general beast that Satan gave power to spread world-wide.
And, Islam has the power and cunning of three known animals. Verse 2, above, mentions a leopard, a bear, and a lion; and the known qualities of each. Let’s first analyze that similarity to a leopard.
John said the beast was like a leopard. As most are aware, the greatest quality and strength of a leopard is its cunning and patience to sneak upon its prey before it makes that last sprint to kill that prey. A leopard also has camouflage, its spots and blotches that allow it to hide near its prey before it reveals itself. These are the similar characteristics John is prescribing to Islam.
Islam claims to be a religion of peace and quietly lulls unsuspecting targets into becoming unaware of that lurking danger it possesses; that power given from Satan. It asks for acceptance based upon its reputation of peaceful; then when its numbers are large enough in a community it springs upon its unsuspecting prey. Its goal is to destroy everything not Islam to allow Satan to rule supreme through the claws and teeth of Islam. Its level of peace is determined by its percentage of silent encroachment into a community or a nation. Once it achieves a saturation point near fifty percent; that accepting community is doomed. This is the leopard that hides with its spots in camouflage until its prey is surprised and destroyed. This describes that leopard.
John also described that beast as having feet like a bear. A bear represents great strength; and its feet grounds himself for power to increase that great strength. That bear is also relentless and determined to destroy whatever it attacks. This relentless fierceness clearly describes the soul of Islam; totally determined to create destruction and chaos even to the depths of self destruction if necessary to achieve Satan’s goal of destroying the foundation of Christ’s influence on earth. That bear with great feet is grounded in fierce determination.
And there should be no doubt about the metaphor of the beast having the mouth of a lion. The lion’s great attribute is its loud and deep roar. Satan gave that Islamic beast the power to loudly roar for two great reasons. First, to proclaim its territory; which to Islam is the whole world, those seven heads that rise from the sea. The second reason is to proclaim they are most powerful; so powerful that they strike fear into anyone who would challenge them. The roar from their mouth is a challenge to anyone who would question their great authority, their power, and their right to destroy anything not of their acceptance. The roar from their mouths is an expression of the strength given to them by Satan.
The first two verses describe the general beast, Islam, and give information regarding the relationship between Satan and the beast he created. The next verse gives more specific information about the one identified as the first beast. This also describes the person identified in other parts of the Bible as ‘the’ Antichrist. Verse 3 continues:
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Later in Revelation these seven heads are described as the whole world, seven continents; and the ten crowns are described as the ten nations that formally support this beast. This beast, also known as the first beast, is none other than Muhammad. Verse 5 begins this important point:
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to him to continue forty and two months. 6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
The logical place to begin this explanation is that question of blasphemy. Muhammad performed the highest form of blasphemy by claiming he was the true prophet instead of Jesus Christ. He and the Muslims who followed him consider Jesus only a minor prophet compared to Muhammad. In a sense he made himself the ‘antichrist’ by claiming to take the place of Christ. There are many antichrists but only one is listed as ‘the’ antichrist. That is Muhammad.
There is also a historical record of his ‘wounded in the head, and his deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast.’ This is explained with information about his Battle of Uhud on March, 625 AD. This is the reference:
“At Mount Uhud the Muslim troops passed the night, and in the morning, after offering their prayers, they advanced into the plain. The Prophet contrived to have the hill at his back, and, the better to secure his men from being surrounded, he placed fifty archers on the height in the rear, behind the troops, and gave them strict orders not to leave their posts whatever might happen.
When they came to engage, the Prophet had superiority at first. But afterward, his archers left their position for the sake of plunder, thus allowing the enemy to attack the Muslims in the rear and surround them. The Prophet lost the day and very nearly lost his life. He was struck down by a shower of stones and wounded in the face by two arrows, and one of his front teeth was broken. Of the Muslims, seventy men were killed, among whom was the Prophet’s uncle Hamza. Of the infidels, twenty two men were lost.
The Quraish were too exhausted to follow up their advantage, either by attacking Medina or by driving the Muslims from the heights of Uhud. They retreated from the Medinite territories after barbarously mutilating the corpses of their dead enemies.” End of article.
Muhammad was believed to be dead, and his troops abandoned the battlefield. Later, Muhammad rose and joined them in the rear.
Now let’s go back to verse 5 to understand that forty-two months; ‘and power was given to him to continue forty and two months.’ This is that time of three and a half years again. But what does it mean? It took me nearly five years to interpret this time, because Muhammad had been active far longer than three and a half years. Suddenly, that answer became very clear. The answer is at this site:
“628 AD: Poisoned at Khaybar. Immediately following the conquest of Khaybar, Muhammad and his men are served a meal of poisoned lamb by a Jewish woman named Zaynab bint al-Harith, causing him to fall ill. Muhammad questions her, and then has her executed.
632 AD: Death of Muhammad. Muhammad’s last days are spent with Aisha in her house, where he continues to issue orders and curse the Christians and Jews. Slumped against her bosom, he finally dies on the 8th of July. Ali (Muhammad’s son-in-law and cousin) reports that Muhammad’s penis was erect after his death.”.
The word ‘continues’ is the major clue that escaped me for a long time. Finally, comparing all this information, and dates, the question solved itself. Muhammad continued for forty two months even after he was poisoned.
We ended the Chapter 13 reference with verse 8. So now we move on to verse 9. Verses 9 and 10 by inference explain the death of Muhammad:
“If any man have an ear, let him hear.10) He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
While most who study Revelation conclude that the ‘666 Mark of the Beast’ pertains to the antichrist, that’s not the case at all. That mark refers to the one who comes after Muhammad and worships Muhammad; that second beast. A time is not specified for this person, but a reference is given to indicate it was a much later time; even to our modern times, 1400 years after the death of Muhammad. That second beast, also known as the false prophet, will be discussed next. He worships the first beast, creates an image to the beast, and is the promoter of that mark.
This second beast is the last part of Satan’s creation to war against God’s time in heaven. Verse 11 continues this explanation of Satan’s plan:
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” The two horns of a lamb represent Christianity, but he spoke the words of Islam for that dragon, Satan. This person who rose from the masses (earth) claimed to be a Christian, but his words and deeds proved him to be under Satan’s control, as a Muslim.
Verse 12: “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
We have already discussed Muhammad’s deadly wound that was healed, but what about all the power? Muhammad ruled a people occupying a large land area. This one who replaced him also had that same power; the leader of a nation or an area.
Verse 13: “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.” This is the single short verse that gives the time clue. Can you imagine what Apostle John thought when he had this vision of aircraft firing bullets, missiles and rockets from the sky? At that time there were no words to describe exactly what he saw; except what he saw; ‘fire come down from heaven.’ The existence of aircraft and missiles in John’s vision indicates he saw something in our recent history; beginning in the 1900s. John was describing modern-day weaponry.
Verse 14: “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” This information is more complex and requires further explanation.
This verse references two beasts; not just a beast. ‘Which he had power to do in the sight of the beast’ refers to the master beast, Islam, guided by Satan. Muhammad has been dead over 1400 years, so he couldn’t perform modern miracles in the sight of Islam or himself. The second reference identifies Muhammad, ‘that they should make an image to the beast.’ This reference is often interpreted as an image of the beast; not an image to the beast. This interpretation changes the whole meaning of this statement. This refers to the beast, Muhammad, who ‘had the wound by the sword, and did live.’ But, what about that image?
This second beast causes that image to the beast, Muhammad, to be created in the Islamic area. That image to the beast is at the current time known as ISIS. By his deceptions of pretending to fight against this Islamic formation, with ‘fire from the sky,’ this second beast deceived many on earth to allow that ISIS formation. Even today, it’s one of the greatest threats against reasonable humanity; guided by that master beast created by Satan. That image ‘to’ the beast is the growing Islamic threat in the Middle East.
Verse 15 adds: “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” This image ‘of’ the beast is the growing danger of Islam. And, of course, those in the areas controlled by these radical groups, who do not worship as they demand, ‘should be killed.’
Verse 16: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead.” Many interpret this as an actual mark on someone that says ‘666.’ But, that’s not what it means. This is a metaphor for two things.
First, it means the acceptance of Islam. That’s identified by the ‘mark in their foreheads.’ This is explained by reference in the first verse of the next chapter, Chapter 14, which says in part, ‘a Lamb having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.’ It simply means the acceptance of something. In the case of the beast, it’s the acceptance of Islam. The mark ‘in the right hand’ simply means one who uses arms to fight for that belief; as Islamic radicals do today – everyday. Now, let’s move to verse 18 to identify this person, this second beast.
“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666) So, let’s do exactly what this verse prescribes; let’s count that number. The only way to count that number is to add 6+6+6; which equals 18. Now, who in our world today fulfills these requirements of aircraft, fire from the sky, miracles, deceptions, and great praise for Muhammad?
He claims to be a Christian, but he speaks praises only of Muhammad and Islam. This number clearly fits only one man of our current times: BARACKHUSSEINOBAMA. Furthermore, this information has a confirmation password; it’s identified in VERSE 18.
1Further evidence that Obama pays homage and respect to that false god, Satan, through Islam, is described next; in his own words. It’s an article by Joshua Riddle at youngcons.com, titled: 40 Mind-blowing Quotes From Barack Obama about Islam and Christianity. This list was presented in my earlier books, but its significance is too important in this topic not to repeat it here. Speaking these words from his own mouth, Barack Obama has proven he is that false prophet who claims to be a Christian, but ‘spake as a dragon’:
“#1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”
These next 20 quotes by Barack Obama are about Christianity and the Bible. Notice the more negative, dismissive, and blasphemous tone. It’s the type of blasphemy expected from a false prophet. These are counter to what he would say if his religious beliefs really were Christianity as he claims from his ‘two horns of a lamb’:
Would a Christian say there are many different ways to get to Heaven? Absolutely not. A Christian knows the only way to get to Heaven is through Christ, the Son of God. To suggest there are other ways, such as through Islam, is blasphemy. A Christian would never say that; anyway not a real Christian.
And, there’s even more current and credible information that Barack Obama supports Satan’s plan to destroy Israel and the God of Israel. Before Obama left office he gave 107 billion dollars to Iran; in untraceable cash. This means Iran can use the money any way they choose and without any accountability. In effect; Obama has paid Iran to continue wreaking ungodly havoc. This transaction is documented in this link:
“An initial $400 million delivery was sent to Tehran Jan. 17, the same day Iran agreed to release four American prisoners. Congressional officials told the Wall Street Journal that the remaining $1.3 billion was paid in two more installments delivered on Jan. 22 and Feb. 5.
A Treasury spokeswoman told the Associated Press the cash payments were necessary because of the “effectiveness of U.S. and international sanctions,” which isolated Iran from the international finance system. The payments were made in Swiss francs, euros and other currencies.
Officials from the Treasury, Justice and State Departments briefed congressional staffers on the payment details Tuesday at the Capitol.
The $1.7 billion was the settlement of a 37-year-old arbitration claim between the U.S. and Iran. The remaining $1.3 billion represented estimated interest on the Iranian cash the U.S. had held since the 1970s.
White House officials had said that they believed the U.S. would lose the arbitration case over the initial $400 million payment, made by the last Shah of Iran months before the Islamic Revolution. Such a decision would have made them liable for much more money.
The Obama administration had claimed the transfer and the prisoner release were unrelated events, but recently acknowledged the cash was used as leverage until the Americans were allowed to leave Iran. Congressional Republicans have accused the White House of paying ransom to Iran in exchange for the prisoners, a charge Obama has rejected.
On Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., introduced bills that would bar such payments in the future.
“The U.S. government should not be in the business of negotiating with terrorists and paying ransom money in exchange for the release of American hostages,” Rubio said in a statement.”
What could Iran do with 1.7 billion dollars in unaccountable cash? Could that be used to buy advanced nuclear technology from another rogue nation who needs financial support to survive; maybe even a North Korea? Will that activity bring forth the sound of trumpets? Let’s explore those trumpets and the vials they produce.
The Seven Trumpets
The first chapters explained the appearance of Christ and His sworn opponent, Satan. Christ came down from heaven full of brightness of the sun and salvation in his glory. When Satan became too ambitious as an angel in heaven, he was thrown out of heaven. He immediately swore to cease God’s time in heaven. Then he gave power to the beast Islam to perform those acts to fulfill his oath. To explain coming events, seven seals from a book were opened in the presence of God’s throne. Information about the first six seals was given in the introduction. This chapter is to interpret the results of opening that seventh seal. This begins with the first verse in Chapter 8 and warns of deeply foreboding acts to follow:
“And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2) And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.”
These seven trumpets were the trumpets that would announce warfare and other disasters to come when the ‘great day of his wrath’ arrives. These were trumpets sounding the final countdown to Armageddon. This was such a serious state that a censer before God’s altar was filled with much incense ‘that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.’ Verses 4 and 5 explain what happens to that incense held by the angel:
“And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” It announced the beginning of great warfare. Then verse 7 explains what happened when the first angel sounded:
“The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”
So, what does this sound of the first trumpet suggest? It suggests the first of three nuclear bombs dropped upon Israel by a sudden attack. From current events and positions of nations this will likely be that attack promised by Iran; that ‘Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth.’ This attack will most likely be upon a heavily populated area, since the nuclear cloud will be taken into the atmosphere and returned to earth; the returning debris being moisture frozen at the highest levels, into hail; mingled with blood of those humans directly under and near the nuclear attack. The second nuclear attack likely will be upon the transportation ports of Israel to curtail replenishment of arms and other supplies coming to Israel’s aid and defense. Verse 8 begins this description:
“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9) And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.”
These ‘third parts’ do not suggest of the whole earth, as many people believe. These destructions represent those in an immediate area such as a port or a bay that supports many ships. Since Israel is surrounded by Muslim nations, the most logical route to that support is by sea; or by air. However, support by air is very limited and restricted; far less than by sea. Many battles throughout history have been won or lost depending upon the level of logistical support.
An army that cannot replenish itself cannot win a war. The perfect example of this is the United States Civil War. Another example is the defeat of Rommel’s desert forces in Arabia during WWII. Before we discuss the results of the sound of the third trumpet, which is an anomaly in this group of trumpets, we will analyze that sound of the fourth trumpet given in verse 12 since it’s related to the first two trumpets:
“And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.”
This darkness was most certainly a result of nuclear fallout and other dust and debris placed in the atmosphere. But, it could also be caused by many combined conventional air attacks and land explosives. This third event could likely be an attack on the dispersed airfields in Israel; many in the desert, located for strategic purposes. Those equipped with the most modern aircraft and armaments would certainly be the first targets by an aggressor to prevent retaliatory air strikes. Air strikes in those isolated desert locations would certainly cast much dust and sand into the air, creating that darkness. These next three links disclose the locations of twelve military sites, many located in isolated desert areas. They are visibly located on google maps for anyone to see; even an enemy:
These are the names of those armed military sites:
Sde Dov/Tel Aviv Air Base
Lod / Ben Gourion
Palmachim Tel Nof
Sedot Mikha Dov
As a matter of interest regarding Revelation and the Battle of Armageddon, that military site at Megiddo has a special meaning. Tell Megiddo, the ruins of the ancient city, overlooks the large Jezreel Valley. This is a likely site of that prophesied great land battle, the name of which is derived from the name of that ancient city; Megiddo. It was also the site of many great battles throughout history. This could be the site of one of the major land battles; or it could simply be a metaphorical name to indicate the severity of that battle.
Verse 13, the last verse in Chapter 8, then gives an introduction to the results of the sounds of the last three trumpets. These results will be so bad they are called ‘woes.’
“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!” These three trumpets, voices, and woes will be explained next.
The next two trumpets are sounded in Chapter 9. These two trumpets sounded the beginnings of two great battles. The first woe is described beginning with the first verse:
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 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. 3) And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4) And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.”
This was the beginning of a major battle scene involving both ground forces and conventional air power. Although John used strange metaphors to describe the war equipment and armor, with just a little military background these metaphors are relatively easy to interpret; even that smoke from the ‘bottomless pit.’
Now, let’s continue with the next verses, understanding that John had no way to know the names of armored vehicles, tanks, helicopters, and aircraft. It continues in verse 5:
“And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6) And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
Before we go further, let’s first pause to understand how and why those men shall seek death. In Islamic thought, the only way martyrs can get to their heaven and be rewarded with seventy-two virgins is to be martyred in battle. It’s their faith, so it should be no surprise this is the course many Muslims try to achieve. Also, why was it given ‘that they should not kill them, but only torment them for five months?’ Perhaps the purpose for this military force was to destroy the strength of those Muslim forces; which is their oil. Without their oil, and opium, they would have no way to supply themselves with arms and ammunition. Now, let’s continue with more of these warfare metaphors before we pause to define them. Continuing with verse 7:
“And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8) And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9) And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10) And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.” Before we go to the next verse, let’s first pause and understand the descriptions of these metaphors.
Most who give their ideas of these descriptions of horrible beasts seem to visualize some monster with great teeth and long spike-pointed tails like dragons. And, perhaps when John first saw these visions, it was also his interpretations of monsters he had never seen. Instead, let’s imagine our interpretation of these things if we had never been exposed to them. What if John saw one of our modern-day war movies? My time while in the military, in Vietnam in 1966-67, offered me that great comparison.
While watching a modern war movie, John would have seen many airplanes on the horizon that, as they became visible, would seem similar to a large swarm of locusts. He would have visualized helicopters which bear a close resemblance to the shape of scorpions; their stings in their tails being firepower from the tails of those helicopters. Their breastplates that looked like iron was actually the iron that surrounded the vehicles and artillery pieces, which the operators stood behind to fire their shells and rockets.
The faces of men were real faces of men he saw behind the windshields of vehicles and aircraft. ‘And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.’ Could this not represent women who actually are in many of our combat positions today; and the armor with teeth of lions could easily be interpreted from armored vehicle grills.
John saw these things but had no way to know what they were or any other way to describe them. Anyone who has seen battle scenes for real, or in movies, would recognize these metaphors without much thoughtful interpretation. These things John described are not beasts with long fangs, sharp claws, and red pointed tails. John saw things of today over two thousand years ago. In summary, Christ was telling us through John’s visions that those battles and tribulations would be well into the future; into our generation.
These were descriptions of weaponry that was to be used on the battlefield of the pending battle. The next verse, verse 11, describes one who is the leader of this formidable battle group going forth to the battlefield for five months. It gives a name to the star that ‘fell from heaven and was given the key of the bottomless pit.’
“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name as Apollyon.” Most interpreters imagine this person is Satan, or one in support of Satan. This link below offers a typical example of this person, this star, or this unseen force:
Dictionaries – Baker’s Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology – Abaddon
“In the Book of Revelation ( 9:1-11 ), when John sees his vision of the fifth trumpet blowing, a vast horde of demonic horsemen is seen arising from the newly opened abyss. They are sent forth to torment the unfortunate inhabitants of earth, but not to kill them. They have a ruler over them, called a king (basileia [basileiva]), the angel of the abyss, whose name is given in both Hebrew and Greek. In Hebrew it is Abaddon and in Greek Apollyon, both words meaning Destroyer or Destruction.
The word only occurs once in the New Testament ( Rev 9:11 ) and five times in the Old Testament ( Job 26:6 ; 28:22 ; 31:12 ; Psalm 88:11 ; Prov 15:11 ). In Psalm 88:11 Destruction is parallel to the grave; in Job 26:6 and Proverbs 26:6 it is parallel to Sheol; in Job 28:22 it is parallel to Death. Job 31:12 says sin is a fire that burns to destruction. So in the Old Testament Abaddon means the place of utter ruin, death, desolation, or destruction.
The angel of the abyss is called Destruction or Destroyer because his task is to oversee the devastation of the inhabitants of the earth, although it is curious that his minions are allowed only to torture and not to kill. His identity is a matter of dispute. Some make him Satan himself, while others take him to be only one of Satan’s many evil subordinates.”
From: Elwell, Walter A. “Entry for ‘Abaddon’”. “Evangelical Dictionary of Theology”. 1997. End of article.
Although these names of Abaddon and Apollyon are normally and systematically applied to Satan or his forces of evil, in this case this person, this star from heaven, is on God’s side. He is not Satan or one who supports Satan’s evil deeds. Furthermore, the word ‘king’ is never used in relation to Satan’s status. Satan is usually referred to as that old serpent, or the dragon. And, it would not be reasonable to think that Christ or one of his heavenly angels would come down in person to lead a physical army into combat. As in many other situations in Revelation, this angel who came down was in spirit to guide someone to perform that task from the bottomless pit.
Another clue is also given about the bottomless pit. The star that came from heaven was given the key ‘of’ the bottomless pit. He wasn’t given the key ‘to’ the bottomless pit. Therefore, this might suggest a condition instead of an actual pit; a hole in the ground. The most practical definition of this bottomless pit is a condition of warfare. Warfare destroys everything; it’s bottomless. And, who is this destroyer that destroys? A suggestion as to this person’s identity will be offered in the next chapter. This destroyer will not be a follower of Satan; he will be one to perform God’s will to destroy that beast created by Satan. There are two key points that support this interpretation.
Verse 4 is the first clue, which in the last part reads: “but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.” This star from heaven was the leader against those who did not worship God. Therefore, it couldn’t be Satan; since Satan and his forces do not worship God. Satan would not try to destroy his own forces. Furthermore, Satan would not be concerned about creating damage to grass, any green thing, or trees. Satan does as Satan does with the sole intent to destroy God in Heaven. The second clue comes from Chapter 20, beginning with the first verse:
“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3) And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.” (This thousand years is commonly known as the Millennium.)
In conclusion, this ‘angel of the bottomless pit’ in Chapter 9 is the same angel who has the ‘key of the bottomless pit’ in Chapter 20. This is also the same angel who locked Satan away in the bottomless pit for a thousand years. This angel, this king (9:11) named Abaddon and Apollyon can be none other than one performing in the Spirit of Christ.
Chapter 9 describes the actions Christ will take against Satan and his great followers; those radical children of Jezebel and Babylon the Great – Muslims. This is not a description of Satan’s forces going forth to attack the good citizens of the earth. This describes Christ going forth with His army to destroy Satan’s army who plans evil upon the earth; in the form of Islam.
This is perhaps the greatest misinterpretation of the Book of Revelation. Without this understanding, the full intent of Revelation cannot be accurately interpreted.
Then verse 12 describes the end of that first woe: “One woe is past; and, behold there come two woes more hereafter. 13) And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden alter which is before God, 14) Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.” This likely represents those forces that must cross water to arrive at the battle zone; this includes oceans.
The remainder of Chapter 9 explains the beginning of the first actual battle, not to torment the enemy, but to slay them; and the time of the battle, beginning with verse 15:
“And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16) And the number of the army of horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.” This number is two hundred million men. How and why is it possible that that many warriors could come toward Israel from the east? In some manner this action must involve China, but how could that be?
There is a possible answer to this question. It involves a super highway, and China’s need for more natural resources. Information about China’s ties to Israel and the Middle East comes from this link:
This information is from Jean-Michel Valantin, (PhD Paris) who leads the Environment and Security Department of The Red (Team) Analysis Society. He is specialized in strategic studies and defense sociology with a focus on environmental geostrategy. His article is titled: ‘The ‘New Silk Road is reaching the Middle East.’
“These new relations between Israel and China are happening in the context of the deployment of the “New Silk Road strategy” in Pakistan and through this country, in Iran and thus in the Middle East.
From a historical and political point of view, it could be said that the “New Silk Road” is revitalizing the medieval Silk Road (“About the Silk Roads“, UNESCO), which closed during the fifteenth century, and which was linking the Mediterranean world to China through the Middle East and Central Asia.
The intensification of the Israeli relations with China may thus appear deeply linked to the Chinese process of international networking launched by China through the “New Silk Road” strategy.
In effect, as we saw, in April 2015, President Xi Jinping and Pakistani Premier Nawaz Sharif announced a joint deal, worth 46 billion dollars, for the development of transportation and infrastructures, which will link the Pakistani harbour of Gwadar, on the Arabian Sea, with the Chinese Xinjiang (Katharine Houreld, “China and Pakistan launch economic corridor plan worth 46 billion dollars”, Reuters, April 20, 2015).
Part of that deal will be devoted to the construction, financed by China, of the Pakistani part of a new gas pipeline between Iran and Pakistan, which will be completed as soon as US sanctions on Iran are lifted when the deal on Iran nuclear projects is signed, probably during the summer 2015 (“China, Pakistan sign gas pipeline deal key to Iran imports”, Press TV, April 21, 2015).
The pipeline, dubbed the “Peace pipeline”, is already completed on the Iranian side, and goes from Assaluyeh, Iran’s energy hub, to the Pakistani frontier. Besides other projects, as seen, it will help alleviate the Pakistani need for energy, and could be used to transport natural gas to China.
Through these infrastructural projects, China’s “belt and road” is reaching the Middle East through South Asia, while developing common interests with Israel.
In other words, the “New Silk Road” becomes a system to support Pakistan and Iran as partners of China, in order for them to be able to support China. This means that China, through the renewal of its relations with Iran, through “the belt” in Pakistan, is becoming both a major South Asia and Middle East player.
This could have major impacts for Israel, which so becomes an important actor of the “Middle East segment” of the system of partnerships and network that China develops. Furthermore, it will be interesting to see if the relations between China and Israel, and between the Middle East countries and China, are going to contribute to further transform, or not, the relationships between Israel and the Middle Eastern world as well as with the Mediterranean world.
And we must not forget that these evolutions of the political and strategic status of Israel are entwined with its new energy capabilities and its relations with the Chinese “New silk road” system.
This convergence between China and its Middle Eastern partners could become a powerful transformative force, given a likely future mammoth influence of China, in the Middle East. This could happen through the creation of new regional and international systems of shared interest between these countries and the Middle Kingdom, while allowing China to become a Middle East player.
What now remains to be seen is the way the New Silk Road could, or not, favour the emergence of a very unexpected system of cooperation in the Middle East, and if this system could affect the balance of power and the “war and peace process” in the region, especially in the case of the Islamic State.” End of article.
Even if China becomes involved, what would be their interest? Likely the same as the reason for their expansion and claim of territory with their building of artificial islands. Their population continues to expand, and their need for natural resources grows every year. Just think of all that oil under the ground in the Middle East. And, Israel has a new found source of natural gas off its shores. Can China survive for long without gaining a greater source of survival resources? Likely not; and they are planning for a long future, as they have had a long history.
But whose side would China be fighting for. There are two major division of Muslims as they would trek toward that final destination.
At this time, it’s important to understand the difference in the two major branches of Islam. They include the Sunni and the Shiite. Their differences are similar to the difference between Jews and Christians; and likely were copied from these religions; as many Islamic ideas and concepts are copied from the two real Abrahamic religions. They also claim to be one of the Abrahamic religions, fulfilling that prophesy of ‘false Jews.’
The Sunni believe as the Jews that their Messiah, known as the Mahdi, has not yet arrived on earth to save them and their religion. The Shiite copied the concept of the Christians; that the Mahdi has already arrived.
The Shiite believe their Mahdi is waiting in Occultation. This means he is hiding somewhere on earth waiting for the right opportunity to spring forth, show himself, and lead Islam to final conquest and world peace. From this concept, the Shiite are very anxious to make something happen to bring the Mahdi forth to lead them.
In the view of the most extreme, a major war against Jews or Christians would make their Mahdi come forth to lead them. This explains Iran’s radical determination to attack Israel; and wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Understanding this concept; can anyone in their right mind believe Iran will fully comply with that Nuclear Agreement arranged by Barack Obama?
Verse 17 then gives another metaphoric description of the battle equipment, mostly armored tanks; ‘and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.” Then verse 20 begins the description of those killed and those to be killed:
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21) Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
Again, this describes Islam. Muslims worship a meteorite rock in Mecca that’s housed in a cube building made of wood and stone, and adorned with gold and silver; and this building ‘cannot walk.’ And, speaking of fornication; can there be a greater fornication than grown men marrying little girls – many little girls, as many Muslims do? Even after this great battle where many were killed ‘they repented not.’ the great battle continued.
“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.” This earthquake likely represented another nuclear event in the great city against those who had killed God’s prophets located there. Verse 14 concludes: “The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.” Then the third woe was announced in the next verse:
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Then the last two verses in Chapter 11 suggested another great battle was to occur.
Verse 18: “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19) And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament; and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake and great hail.”
These things: lightnings, thunderings, earthquakes and great hail were things of warfare prepared to be thrown against Satan’s forces of evil. But, one might ask how hail could be a weapon of war? This question is answered in Chapter 16, verse 21:
“And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
The weight of a talent, a unit of measurement at that time, was approximately seventy-five pounds. This would strongly support the idea that the hail mentioned in these two verses are rocket, mortar, and artillery shells falling from the sky. A heavy bombardment of these shells falling upon an enemy would be ‘exceeding great.’ These were the weapons prepared for that great battle. This is that final great battle often described as Armageddon.
Results from the sounds of these seven trumpets are explained and expanded further with the seven vials of God’s wrath. That will be detailed in the next chapter. Results from the seven vials may be coordinated with the results of the matching sounds of the trumpets.
Seven Vials of Wrath
Chapter 15 begins, “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” Verse 6 begins more description:
“And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7) And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. 8) And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”
Then Chapter 16 explains what happens when the seven vials of wrath are poured out onto the earth. Verse 2, “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.”
This certainly must explain radiation burns from nuclear activity. This verse also gives another clue that’s been written in many other descriptive verses. That is; that the nuclear activity will not be world wide as previously believed by those reading and interpreting Revelation. All these great horrors seem to be targeted at one area that has the greatest accumulation of those followers of Satan – having that mark of the beast; this means Muslims. Now, let’s continue with verse 3:
“And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man; and every living soul died in the sea.” Again, this ‘sea’ means the sea of humanity; and in this case that sea in those specific areas of warfare activity, primarily the Middle East.” Verse 4 gives information about the third vial:
“And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5) And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus, 6) For they have shed the blood of the saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Verse 7 adds confirmation of that judgment, “And I heard another out of the alter say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.”
This term above, ‘rivers and fountains of waters’ was used in another event concerning that great star named Wormwood, in Chapter 8, verses 10-11. In that case the fountains of waters referred to the youth of humanity from which the waters flow and grow. It was an interpretation pertaining to the use of drugs and other inhibiters that largely affect the youth of our society; worldwide. This analogy would suggest something similar. However, since an angel was confirming God’s judgments it would involve even more.
In this case, involving direct warfare in Babylon’s homeland, that unyielding warfare would be very general and would be so rapid and forceful that everyone in its path would be killed. That would include the complete fountains of rivers; which would include mothers as well as their children. Mothers are the sources from which that river of humanity flows. Perhaps this might suggest that once the war begins, the objective would then become total annihilation.
Verse 6, above, identifies those suffering this wrath as those who follow Islam. That identification was clearly given in verses 5 and 6 in Chapter 17. Verse 5 identified Islam as Babylon the Great. Verse 6 reads, “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.” No definition could be any clearer. The rivers and fountains of waters, above, indicate this horror will include youth as well as those already matured to become part of the ‘sea.’
Verses 8 and 9 explain the results of the fourth vial, “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9) And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” This information probably suggests that these people will be traumatized with great heat from those nuclear events, as well as the sores they will have to endure from the radiation burns.
Verse 10 introduces the fifth vial, “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11) And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”
Information about the fourth vial and the fifth vial are very similar, in that they involve heat and darkness. In this particular case, however, pouring of this fifth vial ‘upon the seat’ of the beast produced darkness. The word seat in this verse gives a great clue; the seat and the power of the Islamic nations is oil. Without oil, they have no seat of power and safety. Certainly, many oil wells in those nations will be set ablaze either by bombing, or intentionally as was done by Saddam Hussein when he was driven from Kuwait in 1991. This is an article that explains that event and gives more information about oil being poured into the sea:
Kuwait still recovering from Gulf War fires, from Ryan Chilcote
CNN Friday, January 3, 2003 Posted: 6:33 PM EST (2333 GMT)
“More than 1 billion barrels of oil were burned in fires set by Iraqi forces in their retreat from Kuwait in 1991.
KUWAIT CITY, Kuwait (CNN) -- In the waning days of the Persian Gulf War, as Iraqi forces retreated to Baghdad, Saddam Hussein sent a team of engineers into the Kuwaiti oil fields and blew up hundreds of wells.
Over the next seven months, more than 1 billion barrels of oil went up in flames, and Kuwait and much of the Persian Gulf was engulfed in a poisonous smoke, creating a large-scale environmental disaster.
As the specter of a new conflict between a U.S.-coalition and Iraq looms, some fear that Saddam Hussein could repeat the tactics of 1991 within his own borders, plunging the region into another, even greater, environmental and economic catastrophe.
In Kuwait, the Persian Gulf War left behind heavy environmental damage. Day vanished into night, black rain fell from the sky, and a vast network of lakes was born … lakes of oil as deep as six feet.
Saddam also poured 10 million barrels of oil into the sea. Thousands of birds perished, and the people of the Persian Gulf became familiar with new diseases.
“My child, my son, now he has a problem with his breathing. He can’t breathe very well. … Sometimes he’s coughing and feel dizzy,” said oil worker Mohammad Najaf. “The doctors they told me that [it was] because of the smoke that came after the invasion,” he said.
An environmental disaster
“Right now in Kuwait we are noticing an increasing number of cases of cancer. We think it’s related to what happened in ’91 when we had the oil fires. A lot of people breathe very bad air,” said Dr. Meshal Al-Mesham, head of the Kuwait Environment Protection Agency.
Indeed, Kuwait is still recovering from the environmental damage it suffered during the Persian Gulf War, according Jonathan Lash president of the World Resources Institute, a Washington-based think tank that focuses on global environmental and development issues.
"What many recall as a short-lived conflict resulting in the liberation of Kuwait was an environmental disaster -- one from which the region and its people have yet to recover," Lash said in a written statement, adding: "The oil that did not burn in the fires traveled on the wind in the form of nearly invisible droplets resulting in an oil mist or fog that poisoned trees and grazing sheep, contaminated fresh water supplies, and found refuge in the lungs of people and animals throughout the Gulf."
“Today,” Lasher said, “Saddam could deliberately create another catastrophe if attacked.”
Kuwait’s Burgan oil field, second largest in the world after Saudi Arabia’s Ghawar field, was nearly destroyed in just months. The environmental impact is still being felt.
The fires, according to a report prepared for Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, the allied commander in the Gulf War, consumed more than 4 million barrels of oil a day at their height.
According to the same report, within six days of the fires being set, a cloud of smoke stretched from Baghdad across the United Arab Emirates to Iran, and “black rain” fell as far away as Turkey, Syria and Afghanistan.
“Of course. I mean, he did it one time. I expect him to do it again. He is the man that you expect the unexpected, and as long as he did it for Kuwait he would do it for other parts, even if it is for his own oil fields,” said Ahmed Al Arbeed, chairman and managing director of the Kuwait Oil Co.
Lakes may hide unexploded ordnance
Although much of the oil gushing from the ground burned in the fires, a sticky residue formed lakes that mar the landscape of Kuwait to this day.
Clean-up efforts are hampered by the knowledge that below the surface of these oil lakes may be unexploded ordnance from the conflict.
“I expect him (Hussein) to do it again,” said Ahmed Al Arbeed, chairman of the Kuwait Oil Co.
But with the second largest known reserves in the world after Saudi Arabia, Iraq simply has more fuel for the fire, and the Iraqi oil fields are less accessible than Kuwait’s.
"You just look around, everything's flat -- the oil had just kind of spread all over the ground. It was just messy to get into, but in northern Iraq the terrain would be a lot more rough," said Clyde Kinsel, who works in the Kuwait oil fields for drilling contractor Pride International.
“It would be a lot harder to get equipment and personnel into these places to do an adequate job.”
Pentagon planners believe that Saddam would set fire to his own oil wells if his hold on power is threatened (Full story), and Secretary of State Colin Powell, interviewed on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last Sunday, gave the following assurance that the lessons of 1991 had been learned:
“The oil fields are the property of the Iraqi people, and if a coalition of forces goes into those oil fields, we would want to protect those fields and make sure that they are used to benefit the people of Iraq and are not destroyed or damaged by a failing regime on the way out the door,” Powell said.” End of article.
These results were from only a battle confined to Kuwait. Even that small event created great horror from the oil of the earth in that small confinement. Just imagine what would happen if the entire oil bearing countries of the Middle East were attacked and all those oil wells and facilities destroyed and set ablaze; either accidentally from war, or intentionally. Would this fulfill the prophesy of that verse in Revelation, Chapter 18, verse 21?
“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” That chapter concluded in verse 24:
“And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
The sixth angel came forward in verse 12. Results from this vial revealed access to the battle zone by many forces:
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” This begins the description of the Battle of Armageddon mentioned earlier. Then verse 13 describes the spirits of Satan, the beast, and the false prophet coming forward to gather their kings together to fight that battle. Verse 14 gives the result:
“For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
These next two link references give more information about travel access and river crossing from the east into Israel. One explains the actions by China to create a super highway. The other explains actions by Turkey to block the Euphrates River:
This first article is by a blogger ‘st louis steve’ on Saturday, June 17, 2006. It’s titled: A Military Highway Across Asia and the Drying Up of the Euphrates River
“Another prophecy in Revelation declares that the Euphrates River will be dried up to allow this enormous army of two hundred million soldiers to cross from Asia to invade Israel: “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared” (Revelation 16:12). Throughout history the Euphrates River has been an impenetrable military barrier between East and West. However, the government of Turkey recently constructed the huge Ataturk Dam that can now dam up the waters of the Euphrates for the first time in history. The prophet John foretold a future military highway across Asia that would allow this astonishing army to march toward the final battle in Israel. John describes the building of this highway in these words: “The way of the kings of the east might be prepared” (Revelation 16:12).
The Chinese government has spent enormous sums and expanded the lives of hundreds of thousands of construction workers building a military super-highway across Asia heading directly toward Israel. This highway has no economic purpose and no foreigners are allowed anywhere near this road. The highway has been completed through the south of China, Tibet, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. This curious prophecy about “the way of the kings of the east” is being fulfilled in the 1990s setting the stage for the final battle of this age.”
This blog reference was in response to an article from a book by Grant R. Jeffrey, titled: The Signature of God. The article was titled: Revelation in our Generation? Evidence from Prophecies Fulfilled in our Generation. This is the link:
This article from Wikipedia gives more information about ground access to Israel from the east:
“The Atatürk Dam (Turkish: Atatürk Barajı), originally the Karababa Dam, is a zoned rock-fill dam with a central core on the Euphrates River on the border of Adıyaman Province and Şanlıurfa Province in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey. Built both to generate electricity and to irrigate the plains in the region, it was renamed in honor of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881–1938), the founder of the Turkish Republic. The construction began in 1983 and was completed in 1990. The dam and the hydroelectric power plant, which went into service after the upfilling of the reservoir was completed in 1992, are operated by the State Hydraulic Works (DSİ). The reservoir created behind the dam, called Lake Atatürk Dam (Turkish: Atatürk Baraj Gölü), is the third largest in Turkey.
The dam is situated 23 km (14 mi) northwest of Bozova, Şanlıurfa Province, on state road D-875 from Bozova to Adıyaman. Centerpiece of the 22 dams on the Euphrates and the Tigris, which comprise the integrated, multi-sector, Southeastern Anatolia Project (Turkish: Güney Doğu Anadolu Projesi, known as GAP), it is one of the world’s largest dams. The Atatürk Dam, one of the five operational dams on the Euphrates as of 2008, was preceded by Keban and Karakaya dams upstream and followed by Birecik and the Karkamış dams downstream. Two more dams on the river have been under construction.” End of article.
Now, at this time it might be logical to ask why China would want an easy and quick access toward Israel. The likely answer is that China is expanding and growing rapidly economically and needs the oil that comes from those nations surrounding Israel. Perhaps China believes that war in the Middle East would allow them some diplomatic or economic agreement with those nations when they ‘eliminate Israel’ to share their rich reserves of oil. They keep saying Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth, so that’s the same as saying they plan to attack Israel one day. Instead of getting a share of that oil, China and her neighbors will be surprised when they get there that the oil is pooled all across those nations, for generations, much of it likely on fire that will ‘darken the skies.’
Then verse 15 gives the great warning to be prepared:
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Verse 16, “And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon.” Verse 17 describes the end:
“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.”
The remaining verses in Chapter 16 then describe more war activity, such as thunders, lightenings, and earthquakes. These were so fierce verse 18 describes them, “such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.” Verse 21 concludes Chapter16 with the words, “for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
And, since battles must have leaders, the leader of one of the forces will be described next. His name is Apollyon and or Abaddon.
Apollyon and Abaddon
Before every great battle, there must be a leader to lead that battle and coordinate the strategic and tactical activities. This leader’s name was revealed in Chapter 9, when the fifth angel sounded that trumpet. This event revealed those weapons of war and it also described the name of the leader. Verse 11 gives that information:
“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
As written in the previous chapter of this book, this Abaddon or Apollyon has been, and ordinarily is, considered the leader of Satan’s forces or even Satan himself. If this were true, it would create a dire and horrible circumstance for those following in the Spirit of God. Fortunately, however, this person is also known as the destroyer, or one who destroys. Following the terms and sequence of information in Chapter 9 and other related chapters, this is the destroyer who will destroy Satan’s force of Islam. This interpretation gives validity and importance to other information in Revelation, and to some entries in the Book of Daniel. Let’s begin with descriptions given above.
This great battle could not have taken place in past times because the description of weaponry and armaments did not exist prior to our current times. These references suggested the use of helicopters, airplanes, artillery and mortars. And the use of aircraft is also inferred in another reference identifying that second beast in Chapter 13, verse 13: “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
I have already suggested that the actions and words of Barack Obama point directly at him to be that second beast; that false prophet. He has spoken the words and blasphemies; and that fire from the sky suggests from aircraft. Both concepts suggest the battle will be after these events and situations.
The second confirmation of time comes from Daniel. It pertains to a covenant and the results of it being broken. It also involves that abomination of desolation described before the tribulation period begins. This begins in Daniel, Chapter 9, verse 25:
“Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26) And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
This seems to suggest that a rebuilding project will begin in Jerusalem, scheduled for 69 weeks, but at the end of 62 weeks that project will be halted by an attack from Islam; that attack from ‘people of the prince.’ (The lower case p represents Satan. The upper case P represents Christ.) Then verse 27 gives the precondition that allows this attack to occur:
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (seven years): and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
This ‘midst of the week’ of seven years would suggest a time of three and a half years. Now let’s go to verse 11 in Daniel, Chapter 12, to see if that three and a half years has any meaning:
“And from that time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days (Three and a half years). 12) Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”
In summary, the sounding of this second trumpet seems to suggest another phase of that nuclear event, and includes associated time frames. In this case this information suggests that a covenant (agreement) will be made for seven years; some say ten years, then in the midst it will be rejected. This will allow that attack on Jerusalem approximately three and a half years after it was agreed by ‘many.’
The date of the Iran Nuclear Agreement by seven nations was July, 2015. A recent determination by the United Nations stipulated that Israel does not own that land surrounding the Temple Mount. Barack Obama allowed this determination to happen by not using the U.S. veto.
Is this the beginning of that abomination of desolation that will result in the final attack against Israel? Will Barack Obama, himself, one day soon, become that abomination in Jerusalem under the guise of ‘bringing people together’ or by his promotion of fighting ‘climate change?’ Or, is that Dome of the Rock the abomination already in place?
As briefly described in the last chapter when the third trumpet sounded it was an announcement of the great star Wormwood, that seems out of place; inserted among the other trumpet sounds that announced warfare and other physical disasters.
This wormwood was mentioned earlier in this writing. Briefly, it represents the horror, not an actual star, that’s fallen upon the earth. It announces the great affects of drugs and other inhibitors that destroy the actions and abilities of mankind. Mankind is referred to as waters and rivers. The youth of our world is referred to as fountains of waters. This is that reference from Chapter 8, verses 10-11:
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters. And the name of the star is Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”
Although this mention of wormwood might seem out of place in the sequence of other events; it is nevertheless an important entry. Not only are the results of these inhibitors disastrous; the growing horror seems to be inserted as part of the time line. Perhaps as that Dome of the Rock was placed in Jerusalem to announce the time of horrors, called tribulation, is getting closer; perhaps this influence of wormwood is to announce that time is growing even closer. Let’s consider how dangerous this star has become.
Before we discuss the devastating affects of drugs on our society, let’s interpret one of the seemingly minor parts of that verse which describes wormwood. In that verse it describes the star as ‘burning as it were a lamp.’ Ordinarily, this description would seem to be connected to a star that burns. Of course a star burns, but would it be as a lamp? In this case, this reference is to fire, or a way of using drugs.
The current and common term of this lamp would be a bong. Wikipedia describes a bong as: ‘A filtration device generally used for smoking cannabis, tobacco or other herbal substances.’ But, what about its usage? How widespread is the use of drugs? Let’s begin with drug usage in the United States.
This article is titled, ‘U.S. Has Highest Levels of Illegal Drug Use’ and is reported by: www.verywell.com/marijuana-leads-to-later-drug-abuse-63520.
The article begins, Drug Use Increasing Worldwide, Survey Finds. Updated August 05, 2015:
“In spite of the most stringent drug policies and punitive laws in the world, the United States also has the highest levels of lifetime illegal cocaine and marijuana use, according to a study of more than 54,000 people in 17 countries.
The United States also has the highest rate of lifetime tobacco use but comes in third in alcohol use, behind the Ukraine and Germany. The study, by Louisa Degenhardt of the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia) and colleagues, is based on the World Health Organization’s Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI).
Cocaine and Marijuana Use
The survey which asked participants about their lifetime cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, and tobacco use found that 16.2% of people in the United States have used cocaine at some point during their lives. This rate was almost four times the rate of the second-place country, New Zealand, where 4.3% said they had tried cocaine.
The researchers also found that 42.4% of people in the United States reported marijuana use during their lifetime. New Zealand was second with 41.9%, but the two countries were far ahead of the other 15 in lifetime marijuana use.
Drug Policies Are Not Enough
“Drug use is related to income, but does not appear to be simply related to drug policy, since countries with more stringent policies towards illegal drug use did not have lower levels of such drug use than countries with more liberal policies,” Degenhardt and her colleagues write.
“The United States, which has been driving much of the world’s drug research and drug policy agenda, stands out with higher levels of use of alcohol, cocaine and cannabis, despite punitive illegal drug policies, as well as (in many U.S. states) a higher minimum legal alcohol drinking age than many comparable developed countries,” the authors report.
“The Netherlands, with a less criminally punitive approach to cannabis use than the United States, has experienced lower levels of use, particularly among younger adults,” the report says.
“Clearly, by itself, a punitive policy towards possession and use accounts for limited variation in nation-level rates of illegal drug use.”
Drug Use Rates Higher Among Younger ParticipantsHere are some of the other key findings of the study:
“Males were more likely to have used all drug types, but that gender gap is closing among the youngest participants.
Younger adults were more likely to have used all the drugs in the study than the older adults.
Those who were never married or previously married had higher rates of tobacco, cocaine and marijuana use, but not alcohol use.
Higher income was associated with higher rates of both illegal and legal drug use.
Tobacco use is more prevalent among people who have been previously married but less likely among those never married.
Alcohol use by age 15 was much more common among Europeans than in the Middle East or Africa.”
Survey Results Not Static
“There was greater drug involvement among younger than older adults in all countries, suggesting that drug use has and may continue to change over historical time,” the authors write.
“Interestingly, there was also evidence to suggest that male-female differences in risk of initiating drug use may be changing in more recent birth cohorts.
“This change was a consistent finding across countries, suggesting that a general shift may be occurring with respect to the traditional sex differences so often documented with drug use.”
This is the source of information for the above article: Degenhardt L, et al. (2008)
“TowardaGlobalViewofAlcohol,Tobacco,Cannibis,andCocaineUseFindings from the WHO World Menatl Health Surveys.”
This is another article explaining drug use world-wide. It’s titled, ‘Illegal Drug Use Around the World – 5 Things You Need to Know.’ It’s from Audrey Yoo at twitter .com. It begins, ‘Much of the increase in illegal drug use worldwide will take place in developing countries.’
“Global illegal drug use is expected to rise by 25% over the next few decades as rapid urbanization, industrialization, and population growth in developing countries fuel the demand for illegal substances, the UN’s anti-drug agency said in its new ERLINK"http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/data-and-nalysis/WDR-2012.html"\t"_blank"annual report this week. The report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC), which underlines the fight against drug abuse with data on the consumption and production of illegal substances, also projects that developing countries will shoulder the burden of the global drug problem in the coming decades.
Here are the highlights of the UN findings:
1. Roughly 230 million people have used an illegal drug at least once in 2010. In 2010, 5% of the world adult population aged 15-64 used illegal drugs at least once. Problem drug users, who mainly depend on cocaine and heroin, make up an estimated 0.6% of the world adult population, amounting to roughly 27 million. Every year, approximately 200,000 people worldwide die from drug abuse.
2. The global number of illegal drug users will go up by 25% by 2050. If the annual prevalence of illegal drug use stays stable at 5% of the adult population over the next few decades, demographic trends indicate that the total number of illicit drug users will increase by a quarter by 2050, which is in proportion to world population growth. Although the current rate of 5% might appear like a small proportion of the world’s adult population, if this rate continues, there may be some extra 65 million illegal drug users by 2050 compared to 2009-2010.
3. The increase in illicit drug use will be most pronounced in developing countries. Drug use is linked to urbanization. With the urban population of developing countries expected to double between 2011 and 2050, they will see a marked increase in the demand for drugs. In other words, the burden of the global drug problem will shift to countries that are relatively ill-equipped to deal with it, explains Yury Fedotov, the UN anti-drugs chief. In addition, developing countries’ higher projected population growth and younger populations, the main consumers of drugs, will raise the demand for illicit drugs in those nations.
4. Two of the world’s most popular illegal drugs are cannabis (marijuana) and amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS). There are an estimated 119-224 million marijuana users globally, making it the most popular illegal substance in the world. Amphetamine-type stimulants such as methamphetamine come in second with around 14-52.5 million users worldwide. As of now there are no signs that marijuana will lose its status as the illegal drug of choice, says the report.
5. More women will use illicit drugs. While men who take illegal drugs still greatly outnumber women, the gender gap, especially in developing countries, will narrow as conservative, socio-cultural barriers break down and as gender equality improves. End of article.
Until recently, very recently, no one in history had enough information to understand the identity of Apollyon and Abaddon. No one could even have had a basis for a guess prior to July, 2015. That was the date the Iran Nuclear Agreement was confirmed ‘by many’ for seven to ten years. That was the date that confirmed the time line. The definition of modern warfare equipment associated with that time line. And, that time line was further confirmed with the out-of-control use of opioids, cocaine, marijuana, and other drugs and inhibitors in our current modern society. We know the conditions match those prophesied. And, we have been given an approximate time. We are almost there.
Furthermore, it’s reasonably clear that Barack Obama, as that second beast, deceived people of the earth by pretending to fight radical Muslims, under their banner of ISIS and other named terrorist groups. This was that deceptive miracle by that beast of ‘bringing fire from the sky.’ While he did this he also allowed our U.S. military to depreciate in breadth and strength. Plus, he denigrated our police forces and not only allowed, but invited and welcomed many undocumented aliens to come into our once peaceful and compatible nation to create disharmony, confusion, and chaos; lacking any purpose of Americanization or integration into our mores and ethics.
In summary, Barack Obama created disharmony and disunity among Americans. From his success as a ‘community organizer’ which was his basic background training; he knew full well that a people divided is a people conquered. That’s the fundamental basis of organizing against an establishment. Yes, Satan prepared him very well for this task.
And, while he performed his deceptions by pretending to fight against radical terrorism, he also invited many of those radical Islamists, whose aim is to destroy us, into our home; our nation’s administration. Many members of the Muslim Brotherhood, with their written plan to destroy us from within, were even invited by Obama to become formal and influential members of our government. He has ‘two horns as a lamb, but he spake as a dragon.’
But, most important to the time line, he arranged that Iranian Nuclear Deal. His name and actions are posted so many times with these prophesied activities that he must be the one. So, by following that time line, the destroyer of that beast, radical Islam, also known as Babylon’s harlot, is already placed into that position; a comparable position to one described as ‘king.’
That covenant was made in July, 2015. If, as written in Daniel, the covenant will be abandoned in the midst of the time, possibly seven years; and if the midst means at the midway point, then that surprise attack against Israel will begin approximately early 2019. If and when that happens, President Donald J. Trump is the only person on earth who could fulfill that role as the destroyer of radical Islam. He would be that ‘king’ over those armies who would destroy that beast. He would be that ‘Abaddon, according to the Hebrew tongue, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.’
He would be that ‘king over them.’ But how and where will that battle begin? That will be considered in this next chapter.
That Great Battle
The introduction to this great battle between good and evil was mentioned early in Revelation in Chapter 6. This introduction began with the opening of those first two seals by the ‘Lion of the tribe of Juda.’ That first beast introduced the forces of Good, led by the Spirit of God. That’s described in the first two verses:
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”
The next two verses then introduce the one who will challenge God and His forces. This is the one riding the red horse of evil. That red horse is associated with the red dragon and Satan throughout Revelation. This is the same angel who swore to end God’s time in heaven in Chapter 10. This was the challenge that forced God to wage war against this evil creature, Satan:
“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”
The rider of this red horse is clearly identified throughout Revelation as Satan and his army that he created to fulfill his oath to remove God from Heaven. The birth of Satan’s army is described in Chapter 13, with the ‘beast that rose up out of the sea.’ This referenced sea is not a sea as a body of water; but instead is a sea as in a sea of humanity. This metaphor is used often in Revelation. This first information describes that general beast, Islam. Then, verses get more specific to identify Muhammad, whose spirit became the representative of that Islamic army. Verse 4 continues:
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? 5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
This paragraph above gives the first suggestion that this beast’s army was that of Islam by saying ‘And it was given unto him to make war with the saints.’ This is further confirmed with more information presented in Chapter 17; where it makes it very clear that Islam is that general beast of which Muhammad is the spiritual representative. Chapter 17 describes and identifies a woman named ‘Babylon the Great.’ She is riding a scarlet colored beast, similar to that red horse presented when that second seal was opened. It begins with the first verse:
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew 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.”
Now, referring back to Chapter 13; this is the same beast that ‘rose up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.’ This is further confirmation that the beast and the woman are the same entity. Then in Chapter 17 the verses get more and more specific, beginning with verse 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” The next two verses explain exactly who this woman is, the woman identified as Jezebel in that letter to Thyatira:
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Then verse 6 hits the nail on the head and pins the tail on the donkey:
“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.”
This is the same beast in Chapter 13, verse 7 ‘that was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them with that power over all people of all nations that did not have their names written in the book of life.’ These two references in both chapters make it very clear; Islam is that beast totally dedicated to making war against God in heaven. And, that method to remove God is to kill and remove all that worship Him here on the earth. That goal by Satan, to be performed by his creation, Islam, is the basis for that Great War.
Before we move into those verses of direct warfare, however, there’s an important observation that must be made from the verse above, verse 4, ‘that was arrayed in purple and scarlet color.’ These are coded words that reflect the power source of this beast, this woman. Purple and scarlet are not only colors that represent royalty, they are also colors with a common base of amber. Amber is the natural base color of oil; which created that power source of Islam. Without that ‘purple and scarlet (red)’ Islam would have no concentrated power.
And, before we advance into the direct battle zones we should also connect another observation for better understanding and comprehension. That is to equate that red horse in Chapter 6 with that scarlet colored beast in Chapter 17. Remembering from that rider of the red horse in Chapter 6: “And power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another.” Then information in Chapter 17 explains how that one rider will kill one another. This is derived from verse 5 that explains that Mother Babylon has a harlot daughter; Babylon is the name of the general beast, Islam. The harlot whore includes all the radicals of the mother. Also, remember that the ten kings are the formal leaders of Islamic nations. So, to understand, let’s begin with verse 12:
“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 16) And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17) For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their full kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.”
This explains how the one rider of the red horse goes forth to kill one another. The kings of mother Islam kill the whore, those radicals; as they are doing even today. The implication of an impeding war is expressed as ‘until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
An interpretation of the beginning of the war was given earlier in this writing. That was an explanation of the sudden beginning with a surprise nuclear attack upon Israel. There are written several warnings to be prepared and not hesitate to take evasive action when this activity begins. Let’s explore a few of those warnings to be prepared. The most complete warning comes from Matthew, Chapter 24, and beginning with verse 14. This warning is generally considered the Olivet Prophesy, since Jesus is speaking to his apostles on the Mount of Olives:
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15) When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17) Let him which is on the house top not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18) Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19) And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20) But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day.”
Then the warnings take a slight shift. It’s a warning not to be deceived by false prophets This begins with verse 21:
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22) And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 23) Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24) For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible they shall deceive the very elect. 25) Behold, I have told you before. 26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.”
These warnings in Matthew are the most extensive and complete, however, several strong warnings to be prepared are also included in Revelation. Lets’ explore those to really understand the significance of understanding and being prepared. Perhaps the first warning comes in Chapter 2 in that letter to the church at Pergamos; “where Satan dwelleth,” beginning with verse 14:
“But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 15) So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. 16) Repent, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”
Several things are important in this message. First, ‘where Satan dwelleth’ referred to the symbol of a serpent that adorned the Aesclepion, which was a great medical center in Pergamos. Ruins of that medical center remain there even today, with the frieze of that serpent still visible. (I observed those ruins when I visited the sites of all seven churches of Asia, now in modern Turkey, in 1974 while I was assigned there in the military.)
Second is the mention of Balaam and Balac. Balaam was a prophet that Balac called upon to cast a spell upon the newly arrived Israelites into his nation of Moab; on their way to the promised land, after their escape from bondage in Egypt. Although Balaam didn’t fully comply with Balac’s request, his actions and words did lead to the Israelites being persecuted by God. This persecution was caused by the Israelites turning to eating food sacrificed to idols and committing fornication; sexual immorality.
The reference to Nicolaitanes is believed to refer to the doctrine of homosexuality led by a man named Nicolas. This Nicolas was a member of the group who helped and assisted the surviving widows of those Jews who were killed and exiled for their promotion of Christ and the coming Christianity.
And, there is also the reference to fornication in this warning. Is there any more severe act of fornication than that committed by modern Muslims? They ‘marry’ young girls; and it’s not uncommon for rape to be accepted under certain circumstances in that ‘religion.’
It should be remembered that these letters to those seven churches were not just to members of those seven churches. They were written to all people for all times; to be ready. The things this letter warns against apply directly and perfectly to Islam; even that serpent of Aesclepious. It was that serpent Satan that created Islam to perpetuate his war against God.
Another warning comes from the letter to the church at Philadelphia: “Behold I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”
Another similar warning comes from Chapter 16, verse 15: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
The final warnings are given in the last chapter of Revelation, Chapter 22. They are presented in verses 7 and 12:
“Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophesy of this book”
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”
These were warnings given well before any attack or any battle was to begin. Then, the Words in Revelation explain those attacks and those war events from different views. One view of preparing forces for that battle begins in Chapter 14, verse 14:
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15) And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16) And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.” This seems to be Christ gathering His forces to defeat Satan. Then the next verses show Satan also reaping his forces from the earth; verse 17:
“And another angel came out from the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18) and another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19) And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20) and the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”
This is another view of that war activity that describes God’s wrath against those forces of evil known as Babylon. This is from Chapter 16, and begins with verse 16:
“And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17) And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18) And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19) And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon (Jezebel and Islam) came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20) And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21) And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
This reference to this great city being divided into three parts is somewhat confusing. It seems to refer to that great city, Jerusalem. However, taken in total context it seems to suggest that the great city Babylon would be divided into three parts. From a true military viewpoint, those Islamic nations would be divided into sectors so they could be attacked by three different armies or forces. Each part would be a defined target.
Another view; and the conclusion of that battle is explained in Chapter 19, beginning with verse 11:
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12) His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13) And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14) And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15) And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
Perhaps this is time for a pause to understand the meaning of the concept of a ‘sharp two-edged sword or any sword’ from God’s mouth. This is one of the great misunderstandings of the Words in Revelation. This does not mean this will be the second physical coming of Christ to earth. It simply means Christ’s Words and Spirit will come down to earth to destroy that Great Babylon. It will be by His Words and His Spirit; but the actual fighting will be by forces led by someone else. That physical leader of that war will be that ‘destroyer’ known as Apollyon and Abaddon. However, this Destroyer must accept and be led by that Spirit. These next references explain the use of God’s swords; his Words:
Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Revelation 1:16, “And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”
Revelation 2:12 and 16: “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; Thse things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.” End of references.
This view of the war in Chapter 19 continues. We begin with verse 16:
“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 17) And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18) That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”
These fowls of heaven are also mentioned metaphorically regarding warfare in Matthew, 24: 27-28:
“For as the lightening commeth out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”
This battle scene in Chapter 19 continues with verse 19:
“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20) And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21) And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”
The results of these battles are reiterated in Chapter 18. Chapter 18 not only sings praises of the conquest of that evil; it also presents many of the earthly commercial problems which result from that war. The first verse begins:
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2) And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3) For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
Then the next verses, 4-10, explain that the city Babylon (Islam) has received just rewards for her inequities. Verse 4 begins:
“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. 5) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6) Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7) How much she hath glorified herself, and lied deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8) Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. 9) And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. 10) Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come.”
The remaining verses in Chapter 18 are rather lengthy; however it’s necessary to list the information here to show the devastation that will occur in those Islamic areas that are now part of that Mother Babylon. Also, many people who would read this book don’t have access to a Bible that lists all these details. It explains total devastation for the immediately effected areas; plus, the devastation will be so great it will also affect other parts of the world. So, let’s begin with verse 11:
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12) The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble.”
Let’s pause for a moment and remember the significance of those two colors above; purple and scarlet. These are two colors having the base color of amber. That amber color is the base color of oil; which is the major source of economic power from these Babylon’s primary regions of the earth. This verse indicates that oil will no longer be obtained from that once-rich region. Furthermore, let’s recall that statement from verse 8, above, ‘and she shall be utterly burned with fire.’ Perhaps this is referring to the idea that the land will be strewn with burning oil; which will make that land useless; as described in verse 21, below. Now, let’s continue with verse 13:
“And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14) And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.”
Not only will this region be devoid of these things of necessity, convenience and preference; others throughout the world will also be denied access to these items ordinarily produced by that region of the world. That information continues in verse 15:
“The merchants of these things which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16) And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17) For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18) And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying What city is like unto this great city! 19) And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour she is made desolate. 20) Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.”
Then the next verses give an example of God’s wrath against Babylon, that religion formed by Satan who raised his hand to heaven and swore that God’s time there would be no more (Chapter 10). This was the death knoll of Babylon. These verses also answer the question by those souls waiting under the alter when that fifth seal was opened (Chapter 6, verse 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?” We continue, next, with verse 21:
“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea (of humanity,) saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22) And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23) And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
Then the last verse of this chapter, verse 24, identifies exactly who this Babylon is. It’s almost the same description given for that woman, Babylon described in Chapter 12, verse 6. Both descriptions are given for that comparison:
Verse 6: “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.”
Verse 24: “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
This total devastation of the land of Babylon (Islam) was not only described from a vision by John, it was also described and prophesied from the prophet Isaiah. These are Isaiah’s words from Chapter 34, verses 8-10:
“For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up forever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it forever and ever.”
This prophesy followed from the description of a sword in verse 5:
“For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.”
Idumea was associated with Edom, and the names were often used together. It was an area near Jordan and Israel where perhaps the Lord’s vengeance was taken in a manner similar to His vengeance taken against the evil of the current Babylon. This event sounds very similar to the event; where the Lord’s vengeance was taken with a sword ‘bathed in heaven.’ It was that sword from His mouth.
Then more vengeance followed after the actual battles. It was war’s aftermath in the form of seven plagues from the wrath of God. Some of these plagues began after the first nuclear activity; and some were after the last battle.
And, while Iran plans its deadly attack on Israel that will start these horrific events, there is also another danger by that Mother Babylon to create weakness in Western nations to help facilitate that great attack, although these two events are not coordinated and have no relationship to each other. This silent attack is called the Civilization Jihad; and its leaders are not aware of the more foreboding physical attacks by Babylon’s harlot, in the near future. This silent or Civilization Jihad will be discussed next.
The Silent Jihad
This chapter reveals the Third Jihad planned and executed by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is Mother Babylon’s and Satan’s insidious tool for world conquest. This article is from Discoverthenetworks.org. The full text of the article will not be shown here because of its length, 18 pages. However, it may be read online at several sites. It’s presented in Arabic, PDF, and English. This is one of the links:
“In July 2007, seven key leaders of an Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) went on trial for charges that they had: (a) provided “material support and resources” to a foreign terrorist organization (namely Hamas); (b) engaged in money laundering; and © breached the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which prohibits transactions that threaten American national security. Along with the seven named defendants, the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 “unindicted co-conspirators” and “joint venturers.” During the course of the HLF trial, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant of these was “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram. Federal investigators found Akram’s memo in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”
In line with this objective, Akram and the Brotherhood resolved to “settle” Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States, so that the Muslim religion could be “enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country.” Akram explained that this could be accomplished “through the establishment of firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.” He urged Muslim leaders to make “a shift from the collision mentality to the absorption mentality,” meaning that they should abandon any tactics involving defiance or confrontation, and seek instead to implant into the larger society a host of seemingly benign Islamic groups with ostensibly unobjectionable motives; once those groups had gained a measure of public acceptance, they would be in a position to more effectively promote societal transformation by the old Communist technique of “boring from within.”
“The heart and the core” of this strategy, said Akram, was contingent upon these groups’ ability to develop “a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions.’” That is, by working synergistically they could complement, augment, and amplify one another’s efforts. Added Akram: “The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or ‘scattered’ elements into comprehensive, stable, ‘settled’ organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance.” The ultimate objective was not only an enlarged Muslim presence, but also implementation of the Brotherhood objectives of transforming pluralistic societies, particularly America, into Islamic states, and sweeping away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.
Akram and the Brotherhood understood that in order to succeed in this endeavor, they needed to appeal to different strata of the American population in different ways; that whereas some people could be influenced by messages delivered from a religious perspective, others would be more responsive to messages delivered by educators, or bankers, or political figures, or journalists, etc. Thus, Akram’s blueprint for the advancement of the Islamic movement stressed the need to form a coalition of groups coming from the worlds of education; religious proselytization; political activism; audio and video production; print media; banking and finance; the physical sciences; the social sciences; professional and business networking; cultural affairs; the publishing and distribution of books; children and teenagers; women’s rights; vocational concerns; and jurisprudence.
By promoting the Islamic movement on such a wide variety of fronts, the Brotherhood and its allies could multiply exponentially their influence. Toward that end, the Akram/Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum” named the following 29 groups as the organizations they believed could collaborate effectively to destroy America from within – “if they all march according to one plan”:
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Thanks be to God, Lord of the Two Worlds, Prayers and peace be upon the master of the Messengers.
An Explanatory Memorandum
On the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America 5/22/1991
1- An introduction in explanation
2- The Concept of Settlement
3- The Process of Settlement
4- Comprehensive Settlement Organizations
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Thanks be to God, Lord of the Two Worlds And Blessed are the Pious.
The beloved brother/The General Masul, may God keep him. The beloved brother/Secretary of the Shura Council, may God keep him. The beloved brothers/Members of the Shura Council, may God keep them. God’s peace, mercy and blessings be upon you. To proceed,
I ask Almighty God that you, your families and those whom you love around you are in the best of conditions, pleasing to God, glorified His name be.
I send this letter of mine to you hoping that it would seize your attention and receive your good care as you are the people of responsibility and those to whom trust is given. Between your hands is an “Explanatory Memorandum” which I put effort in writing down so that it is not locked in the chest and the mind, and so that I can share with you a portion of the responsibility in leading the Group in this country.
What might have encouraged me to submit the memorandum in this time in particular is my feeling of a “glimpse of hope” and the beginning of good tidings which bring the good news that we have embarked on a new stage of Islamic activism stages in this continent. The papers which are between your hands are not abundant extravagance, imaginations or hallucinations which passed in the mind of one of your brothers, but they are rather hopes, ambitions and challenges that I hope that you share some or most of which with me. I do not claim their infallibility or absolute correctness, but they are an attempt which requires study, outlook, detailing and rooting from you.
My request to my brothers is to read the memorandum and to write what they wanted of comments and corrections, keeping in mind that what is between your hands is not strange or a new submission without a root, but rather an attempt to interpret and explain some of what came in the long-term plan which we approved and adopted in our council and our conference in the year (1987).
So, my honorable brother, do not rush to throw these papers away due to your many occupations and worries. All what I’m asking of you is to read them and to comment on them hoping that we might continue together the project of our plan and our Islamic work in this part of the world. Should you do that, I would be thankful and grateful to you.
I also ask my honorable brother, the Secretary of the Council, to add the subject of the memorandum on the Council agenda in its coming meeting.
May God reward you good and keep you for His Daw’a. Your brother/Mohamed Akram
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful Thanks be to God, Lord of the Two Worlds And Blessed are the Pious
Subject: A project for an explanatory memorandum for the General Strategic goal for the Group in North America mentioned in the long-term plan
One: The Memorandum is derived from:
1- The general strategic goal of the Group in America which was approved by the Shura Council and the Organizational Conference for the year  is "Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims' causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims' efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is".
2- The priority that is approved by the Shura Council for the work of the Group in its current and former session which is "Settlement".
3- The positive development with the brothers in the Islamic Circle in an attempt to reach a unity of merger.
4- The constant need for thinking and future planning, an attempt to read it and working to "shape" the present to comply and suit the needs and challenges of the future.
5- The paper of his eminence, the General Masul, may God keep him, which he recently sent to the members of the Council.
Two: An Introduction to the Explanatory Memorandum:
In order to begin with the explanation, we must “summon” the following question and place it in front of our eyes as its relationship is important and necessary with the strategic goal and the explanation project we are embarking on. The question we are facing is: “How do you like to see the Islam Movement in North America in ten years?”, or “taking along” the following sentence when planning and working, “Islamic Work in North America in the year (2000): A Strategic Vision”.
Also, we must summon and take along “elements” of the general strategic goal of the Group in North America and I will intentionally repeat them in numbers. They are:
1-Establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood.
2- Adopting Muslims' causes domestically and globally.
3- Expanding the observant Muslim base.
4- Unifying and directing Muslims' effort
5- Presenting Islam as a civilization alternative
6- Supporting the establishment of the global Islamic State wherever it is.
It must be stressed that it has become clear and emphatically known that all is in agreement that we must “settle” or “enable” Islam and its Movement in this part of the world. Therefore, a joint understanding of the meaning of settlement or enablement must be adopted, through which and on whose basis we explain the general strategic goal with its six elements for the Group in North America.
Three: The Concept of Settlement:
This term was mentioned in the Group’s “dictionary” and documents with various meanings in spite of the fact that everyone meant one thing with it. We believe that the understanding of the essence is the same and we will attempt here to give the word and its “meanings” a practical explanation with a practical Movement tone, and not a philosophical linguistic explanation, while stressing that this explanation of ours is not complete until our explanation of “the process” of settlement itself is understood which is mentioned in the following paragraph. We briefly say the following:
Settlement: “That Islam and its Movement become a part of the homeland it lives in”. Establishment: “That Islam turns into firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built”. Stability: “That Islam is stable in the land on which its people move”. Enablement: “That Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves”. Rooting: “That Islam is resident and not a passing thing, or rooted “entrenched” in the soil of the spot where it moves and not a strange plant to it”.
Four: The Process of Settlement:
In order for Islam and its Movement to become “a part of the homeland” in which it lives, “stable” in its land, “rooted” in the spirits and minds of its people, “enabled” in the live of its society and has firmly-established “organizations” on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out this grand mission as a “Civilization Jihadist” responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country. Among these keys and tools are the following:
[* 1- Adopting the concept of settlement and understanding its practical meanings: *]
The Explanatory Memorandum focused on the Movement and the realistic dimension of the process of settlement and its practical meanings without paying attention to the difference in understanding between the resident and the non-resident, or who is the settled and the non-settled and we believe that what was mentioned in the long-term plan in that regards suffices.
2- Making a fundamental shift in our thinking and mentality in order to suit the challenges of the settlement mission.
What is meant with the shift – which is a positive expression – is responding to the grand challenges of the settlement issues. We believe that any transforming response begins with the method of thinking and its center, the brain, first. In order to clarify what is meant with the shift as a key to qualify us to enter the field of settlement, we say very briefly that the following must be accomplished:
A shift from the partial thinking mentality to the comprehensive thinking mentality.
A shift from the “amputated” partial thinking mentality to the “continuous” comprehensive mentality.
A shift from the mentality of caution and reservation to the mentality of risk and controlled liberation.
A shift from the mentality of the elite Movement to the mentality of the popular Movement.
[* 3- Understanding the historical stages in which the Islamic Ikhwani activism went through in this country *]:
The writer of the memorandum believes that understanding and comprehending the historical stages of the Islamic activism which was led and being led by the Muslim Brotherhood in this continent is a very important key in working towards settlement, through which the Group observes its march, the direction of its movement and the curves and turns of its road. We will suffice here with mentioning the title for each of these stages [The title expresses the prevalent characteristic of the stage] [Details maybe mentioned in another future study]. Most likely, the stages are:
A- The stage of searching for self and determining the identity.
B- The stage of inner build-up and tightening the organization.
C- The stage of mosques and the Islamic centers.
D- The stage of building the Islamic organizations - the first phase.
E- The stage of building the Islamic schools - the first phase.
F- The stage of thinking about the overt Islamic Movement - the first phase.
4-Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.
5-Understanding that we cannot perform the settlement mission by ourselves or away from people:
A mission as significant and as huge as the settlement mission needs magnificent and exhausting efforts. With their capabilities, human, financial and scientific resources, the Ikhwan will not be able to carry out this mission alone or away from people and he who believes that is wrong, and God knows best. As for the role of the Ikhwan, it is the initiative, pioneering, leadership, raising the banner and pushing people in that direction. They are then to work to employ, direct and unify Muslims’ efforts and powers for this process. In order to do that, we must possess a mastery of the art of “coalitions”, the art of “absorption” and the principles of “cooperation”.
6-The necessity of achieving a union and balanced gradual merger between private work and public work:
We believe that what was written about this subject is many and is enough. But, it needs a time and a practical frame so that what is needed is achieved in a gradual and a balanced way that is compatible with the process of settlement.
7-The conviction that the success of the settlement of Islam and its Movement in this country is a success to the global Islamic Movement and a true support for the sought-after state, God willing:
There is a conviction – with which this memorandum disagrees – that our focus in attempting to settle Islam in this country will lead to negligence in our duty towards the global Islamic Movement in supporting its project to establish the state. We believe that the reply is in two segments: One – The success of the Movement in America in establishing an observant Islamic base with power and effectiveness will be the best support and aid to the global Movement project. And the second – is the global Movement has not succeeded yet in “distributing roles” to its branches, stating what is the needed from them as one of the participants or contributors to the project to establish the global Islamic state. The day this happens, the children of the American Ikhwani branch will have far-reaching impact and positions that make the ancestors proud.
8-Absorbing Muslims and winning them with all of their factions and colors in America and Canada for the settlement project, and making it their cause, future and the basis of their Islamic life in this part of the world:
This issues requires from us to learn “the art of dealing with the others”, as people are different and people in many colors. We need to adopt the principle which says, “Take from people… the best they have”, their best specializations, experiences, arts, energies and abilities. By people here we mean those within or without the ranks of individuals and organizations. The policy of “taking” should be with what achieves the strategic goal and the settlement process. But the big challenge in front of us is: how to connect them all in “the orbit” of our plan and “the circle” of our Movement in order to achieve “the core” of our interest. To me, there is no choice for us other than alliance and mutual understanding of those who desire from our religion and those who agree from our belief in work. And the U.S. Islamic arena is full of those waiting, the pioneers.
What matters is bringing people to the level of comprehension of the challenge that is facing us as Muslims in this country, conviction of our settlement project, and understanding the benefit of agreement, cooperation and alliance. At that time, if we ask for money, a lot of it would come, and if we ask for men, they would come in lines. What matters is that our plan is “the criterion and the balance” in our relationship with others.
9-Re-examining our organizational and administrative bodies, the type of leadership and the method of selecting it with what suits the challenges of the settlement mission:
10-Growing and developing our resources and capabilities, our financial and human resources with what suits the magnitude of the grand mission:
If we examined the human and the financial resources the Ikhwan alone own in this country, we and others would feel proud and glorious. And if we add to them the resources of our friends and allies, those who circle in our orbit and those waiting on our banner, we would realize that we are able to open the door to settlement and walk through it seeking to make Almighty God’s word the highest.
11-Utilizing the scientific method in planning, thinking and preparation of studies needed for the process of settlement:
Yes, we need this method, and we need many studies which aid in this civilization Jihadist operation. We will mention some of them briefly:
The history of the Islamic presence in America.
The history of the Islamic Ikhwani presence in America.
Islamic movements, organizations and organizations: analysis and criticism.
Muslim and Arab communities.
The U.S. society: make-up and politics.
The U.S. society’s view of Islam and Muslims.
12-Agreeing on a flexible, balanced and a clear “mechanism” to implement the process of settlement within a specific, gradual and balanced “time frame” that is in-line with the demands and challenges of the process of settlement.
13-Understanding the U.S. society from its different aspects an understanding that “qualifies” us to perform the mission of settling our Dawa’ in its country “and growing it” on its land.
14-Adopting a written “jurisprudence” that includes legal and movement bases, principles, policies and interpretations which are suitable for the needs and challenges of the process of settlement.
15-Agreeing on “criteria” and balances to be a sort of “antennas” or “the watch tower” in order to make sure that all of our priorities, plans, programs, bodies, leadership, monies and activities march towards the process of the settlement.
16-Adopting a practical, flexible formula through which our central work complements our domestic work.
[Items 12 through 16 will be detailed later].
17-Understanding the role and the nature of work of “The Islamic Center” in every city with what achieves the goal of the process of settlement:
The center we seek is the one which constitutes the “axis” of our Movement, the “perimeter” of the circle of our work, our “balance center”, the “base” for our rise and our “Dar al-Arqam” to educate us, prepare us and supply our battalions in addition to being the “niche” of our prayers.
This is in order for the Islamic center to turn – in action not in words – into a seed “for a small Islamic society” which is a reflection and a mirror to our central organizations. The center ought to turn into a “beehive” which produces sweet honey. Thus, the Islamic center would turn into a place for study, family, battalion, course, seminar, visit, sport, school, social club, women gathering, kindergarten for male and female youngsters, the office of the domestic political resolution, and the center for distributing our newspapers, magazines, books and our audio and visual tapes.
18-Adopting a system that is based on “selecting” workers, “role distribution” and “assigning” positions and responsibilities is based on specialization, desire and need with what achieves the process of settlement and contributes to its success.
19-Turning the principle of dedication for the Masuls of main positions within the Group into a rule, a basis and a policy in work. Without it, the process of settlement might be stalled [Talking about this point requires more details and discussion].
20-Understanding the importance of the “Organizational” shift in our Movement work, and doing Jihad in order to achieve it in the real world with what serves the process of settlement and expedites its results, God Almighty’s willing:
The reason this paragraph was delayed is to stress its utmost importance as it constitutes the heart and the core of this memorandum. It also constitutes the practical aspect and the true measure of our success or failure in our march towards settlement. The talk about the organizations and the “organizational” mentality or phenomenon does not require much details. It suffices to say that the first pioneer of this phenomenon was our prophet Mohamed, God’s peace, mercy and blessings be upon him, as he placed the foundation for the first civilized organization which is the mosque, which truly became “the comprehensive organization”. And this was done by the pioneer of the contemporary Islamic Dawa’, Imam martyr Hasan al-Banna, may God have mercy on him, when he and his brothers felt the need to “re-establish” Islam and its movement anew, leading him to establish organizations with all their kinds: economic, social, media, scouting, professional and even the military ones. We must say that we are in a country which understands no language other than the language of the organizations, and one which does not respect or give weight to any group without effective, functional and strong organizations.
It is good fortune that there are brothers among us who have this “trend”, mentality or inclination to build the organizations who have beat us by action and words which leads us to dare say honestly what Sadat in Egypt once said, “We want to build a country of organizations” – a word of right he meant wrong with. I say to my brothers, let us raise the banner of truth to establish right “We want to establish the Group of organizations”, as without it we will not able to put our feet on the true path.
And in order for the process of settlement to be completed, we must plan and work from now to equip and prepare ourselves, our brothers, our apparatuses, our sections and our committees in order to turn into comprehensive organizations in a gradual and balanced way that is suitable with the need and the reality. What encourages us to do that - in addition to the aforementioned -is that we possess "seeds" for each organization from the organization we call for [See attachment number (1)]. All we need is to tweak them, coordinate their work, collect their elements and merge their efforts with others and then connect them with the comprehensive plan we seek.
A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends [Imagine if they all march according to one plan!!!]

End of Memorandum
This is another link to that Memorandum information:
This is Mother Babylon’s plan to conquer the United States and the other Western nations. Mother is well on her way and is already greatly entrenched in many European nations; perhaps past the point of recovery for those nations. When the Islamic population and influence becomes great enough, those nations are doomed. Satan will have conquered them totally. Mother Babylon will have sneaked in through the back door; as well as having been insidiously invited in through all the front doors – opened wide for them. Barack Obama has aided them to come in the front door; and also to sneak in through the back door. This will be analyzed in the next chapter.
Obama and Settlement
This is another article explaining the insidious danger of the Muslim Brotherhood. It reinforces the idea that Barack Obama was/is a tool of this dangerous threat against the United States and other Western nations. Perhaps this was one of his actions performing in his function of that ‘second beast.’ This article by Breitbart News was published 30 June, 2016:
“Capt. Joseph R. John, USN (Ret), the Chairman of Combat Veterans for Congress PAC, writes that members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist front groups have become “a very dangerous ‘Fifth Column’ in the United States, appointed by Obama to very high and sensitive positions in the US Government agencies.”
Many law abiding Muslim America citizens have assimilated in the United States and fought as members of the US Armed Forces, against Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, and also against “Radical Islamic Terrorism” over the last 50 years. They are opposed to ISIS’ murderous attacks against gays, Christians, and Jews, and are frightened of the “Radical Islamic Terrorist” threat. More Muslims worldwide than Americans have been murdered by “Radical Islamic Terrorists.”
The Muslim Brotherhood (the progenitor of Jihadism), and its front groups, the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), do not have members who are law abiding Muslim Americans, like many Muslim Americans who are good citizens and have assimilated in the United States. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, and MPAC have sinister goals that are not in support of the US Constitution or The Bill of Rights. They have become a very dangerous “Fifth Column” in the United States, appointed by Obama to very high and sensitive positions in the US Government agencies.
For nearly 8 years Obama has been filling the Washington bureaucracy including DHS, the CIA, DOD, the National Security Council, the White House, the State Department, every US Intelligence Agency, and the US Armed Forces with thousands of members of the CAIR, MPAC, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
Phil Haney (former Custom & Border Protection DHS Law Enforcement Officer) and Richard Higgins (former DOD Manager of the Combating Terrorism & Technical Support Office & Irregular Warfare Section) made explosive charges on national radio. They stated that the Obama administration is a “tool” for the Jihadi movement in the US. That the driving force behind America’s domestic counter-terrorism strategies and its foreign policy is a massive Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement in the United States, that the MB controls how the issue of terrorism is handled at the National Security Agency level.”
Read the rest here at this link:
This next article explains the depth of infiltration into our government and society Barack Obama achieved while he was in office. His supporters and those functioning under the auspices and guidance of the Muslim Brotherhood cast a wide and deep shadow in our nation. Perhaps many are so deeply entrenched they might never lose their heinous and satanly influence. The article is titled: Islamist Infiltration of the Obama Administration. It’s located at this link:
“In June 2012, five Republican lawmakers (most prominently, Michele Bachmann) sent letters to the inspectors general at the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Defense, and State, asking that they investigate government “policies and activities that appear to be the result of influence operations conducted by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood”—the ideological wellspring from which such terrorist outfits as al Qaeda and Hamas first emerged.
One letter, for instance, noted that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s closest aide, her deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, “has three family members … connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.” (In fact, Abedin herself spent 12 years working for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, a Saudi-based Islamic think tank whose agenda was—and remains to this day, as journalist Andrew C. McCarthy explains—“to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West.”
While Bachmann was widely criticized and ridiculed for daring to suggest that Muslim Brotherhood elements had infiltrated the U.S. government, corroboration of her allegations came, in December 2012, from an unlikely quarter: Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine, which asserted that six highly-placed Muslim Brotherhood infiltrators within the Obama administration had transformed the United States “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.” (A translation of the article is available from the Investigative Project.)
According to the Investigative Project, “the six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. These represent many of the individuals and groups about whom Bachmann had raised concerns.
This section of Discover The Networks profiles these and other Islamists who have influenced, or have been appointed to positions within, the Obama administration. Also included in this section are a number of Islamists who have not officially been connected to the Obama administration, but who have had a significant influence on Obama’s thinking over the course of his life.
Moreover, this section contains a link to a profile of the Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF), which was established in 2008 by Abon’go Malik Obama, President Obama’s half-brother, a Kenyan-born Muslim with twelve wives.
*Abon’go Malik Obama is: The overseer of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments; the executive secretary of the Sudan-based Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO), an organization primarily focused on expanding Wahhabist Islam on the African subcontinent; and is closely associated with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, a jihadist tyrant responsible for the deaths of more than three million people, all in the name of Jihad and war against Christians.
By placing many of these Muslims in important and prominent positions, Obama has helped create the illusion that Islam is a religion of peace that can be an integral part of any community or any organization.
And, another great problem with massive immigration without assimilation is explained by Carol Brown in her article of January 21, 2015, titled: The Muslim population of America is expanding at warp speed. This is the link to that article:
“Even when Muslims are a minority population they can and do transform whole cultures and societies. And not for the better.
Why? Because their holy book is a totalitarian ideology founded on submission and world domination. And toward that end, Islam is on the march. Meanwhile, the West remains mired in cowardice and complicity. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Europe, which is on the fast track to join the Caliphate.
Not to be outdone by Europe’s madness, the United States is traveling down the same bloody path, importing large numbers of Muslims from Islamic countries thanks to the Islamophile sitting in the Oval Office and a nation full of dhimmis.
Estimates on the number of Muslims living in the US vary, ranging from 3 million to 7 million. Whatever the precise number, it’s already outdated as it rises with each passing nanosecond.
Since 9/11, there has been a dramatic uptick in immigration from Islamic countries with a 66% increase in the past decade. And things are just warming up. Islam is now the fastest growing religion in America.
Strange, is it not? War has been waged against America in the name of Islam and we’ve opened our doors ever-wider to those who adhere to the very ideology that mandates our destruction.
Pew Research projects that by 2030, the Muslim population in the United States will more than double. In large part this will be attributable to immigration; to a lesser degree due to the size of Muslim families.
In his book Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam, Peter Hammond wrote a detailed analysis on the proportion of Muslims to the overall population and increased violence and adherence to Sharia law. Hammond’s research reads like a roadmap to ruin; a horrifying picture of the future of civilization. To summarize an oft-quoted section:
‘When the Muslim population remains at or under 2%, their presence tends to fly low under the radar. In the 2% – 5% range, Muslims begin to seek converts, targeting those they see as disaffected, such as criminals. When the population reaches 5% they exert influence disproportionate to their numbers, becoming more aggressive and pushing for Sharia law. When the population hits the 10% mark Muslims become increasingly lawless and violent.
Once the population reaches 20%, there is an increase in rioting, murder, jihad militias, and destruction of non-Muslim places of worship. At 40%, there are “widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.” Once beyond 50%, infidels and apostates are persecuted, genocide occurs, and Sharia law is implemented. After 80%, intimidation is a daily part of life along with violent jihad and some state-run genocide as the nation purges all infidels. Once the nation has rid itself of all non-Muslims, the presumption is that ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ has been attained – the Islamic House of Peace.’
(Peace, of course, is never attained. Schisms among sects, starting with the rift between Shia and Sunni, erupt. The ideal of absolute power with divine authority always leads to internal conflict.)
That the United States is ramping up Muslim immigration is sheer insanity. A crucial step to putting the brakes on this frenzied march to our demise is to close the door to Muslims – whether those from Islamic countries or anywhere else.
Unfortunately, we’re doing the exact opposite.
In the last three years alone, 300,000 Muslims immigrated to the United States. And that’s just the beginning. The Refugee Resettlement Program is paving the way for a mass of Muslims to flock to our shores. With the United Nations in charge of determining who qualifies for refugee status and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (formerly the Organization of the Islamic Conference) as the power broker at the UN, you can count on a flood of Muslim refugees to be arriving at a town near you – if not your own town – soon.
And as one might expect, Obama is on board with any and all avenues to bring Muslims to the United States. I guess it’s part of his dream; our nightmare.
Who can forget the lie he told back in 2009 when he said the United States was one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Taqiyya? Stupidity? Slip of the tongue? Wishful thinking? Whatever the reason, it appears he is doing everything in his power to make that lie a reality.
Part of the process of flooding this country with Muslims from Islamic countries involves transplanting entire communities from places like Somalia. And just as we see in Europe, the new arrivals don’t assimilate and they live off the public dole.
For example, Family Security Matters reports that Somali immigrants have overwhelmed many small towns in America, creating their own enclaves. In some cases they’ve become the majority population – a population distinguished by being the least educated and most unemployed in the country, with evidence to show some have little motivation to become gainfully employed.
In addition to Muslims from Somalia, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, a new wave has started arriving from Syria. The State Department expects “admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.” It is expected that 9,000 or more Syrian refugees will arrive this year with a plan to bring at least 75,000 over the next five years.
And as refugees flow in, our tax dollars flow out as the American tax payer funds the Muslim invasion, because when refugees arrive they are linked with a broad array of publicly-funded services (food stamps, subsidized housing, subsidized medical care, tutors, interpreters, and so on). In addition, charities (many of which are Christian or Jewish) that assist refugees receive federal grant money to provide additional support.
And where do these new immigrants from Islamic countries settle once they arrive? Well, just about everywhere and anywhere. The five states with the largest number of refugees are Texas, California, New York, Michigan, and Florida. But the situation is very dynamic and as numbers are updated, demographic shifts occur.
There are also regions of the country that participate in what is called the Preferred Communities Program. The program considers small towns and rural areas to be most suited to refugees and immigrants because small communities are best able to offer the kinds of services this new class of imports need. Or so they claim. And so we’ve got Somali refugees flocking to Cheyenne, Wyoming, in order to get easy-to-come-by Section 8 housing vouchers they take to other states. Those states either pick up the tab, or bill Cheyenne. And Cheyenne is running out of money. Duh.
So much for the taqiyya on the Preferred Communities Program website waxing poetic about the contributions these immigrants make to our society: “Refugees help communities learn and appreciate the many ways newcomers’ talents contribute to a richer, stronger society.”
Maybe that was the case in another time in America. But not now in the age of multi-culturalism. Not with Muslim refugees with no skills, enormous needs, and a sense of entitlement. Oh, and for some, the desire to kill us.
So why are all of these Muslim refugees coming here anyway? Why aren’t they being taken in by Muslim majority countries? It would certainly make sense. After all, they’re much closer geographically, language barriers would be reduced, and local values and traditions are closer.
That Muslim majority countries have not opened their doors to these refugees is, I am confident, quite by design. This is about conquest. Otherwise known as Hijra, the Islamic doctrine of immigration. Hijra works in concert with violent jihad to overwhelm a society until Islam becomes the single dominant force.
And while Muslim refugees swarm into the United States as part of this conquest, Obama has twisted the knife even further by (1) easing requirements for potential immigrants who have links to “soft” terror, and (2) closing the door to persecuted Christians in the Middle East who have precious few options of where to flee. (Obama is also making it exceedingly difficult for French Jews to immigrate to the United States.) Per Investor’s Business Daily:
In another end-run around Congress, President Obama has unilaterally eased immigration requirements for foreigners linked to terrorism.
By exempting five kinds of limited material support for terrorism, Obama instantly purges more than 4,000 suspects from the U.S. terror watch list and opens our borders up to both them and their families.
At the same time Obama opens the floodgates to them, he’s closing our borders to Christians fleeing persecution by Muslims in Egypt, Iraq and other Mideast countries.
Leave it to Obama to make a good situation bad. And then make a bad situation worse. He isn’t satisfied until he’s upped the ante so far imminent danger is at hand.
So we’re importing Muslims from Muslim majority countries who are traumatized, who don’t speak English, who have few skills, who follow the teachings of the Koran, many of whom want to spread Sharia law, some of whom actively support terror, and/or others of whom are or will become terrorists, while we’ve abandoned Christians trapped in the Middle East as they are slaughtered en masse.
To be blunt: We are importing Islamic terror. Not because every Muslim is a terrorist. But because enough of them are. And plenty more who don’t commit acts of terror support it – quietly at home or loudly in the street.
Below is a snapshot of where American Muslims stand on a variety of issues based on polls conducted over the past few years:
13% agree that some frequency of violence to defend Islam against civilians is justified:
* 19% are either favorable toward Al Qaeda or aren’t sure.
* 40% support Sharia law and believe they should not be judged by U.S. law and the Constitution.
* 46% believe Americans who mock or criticize Islam should face criminal charges, with 12.5% in support of the death penalty for blasphemers, another 4.3% somewhat agreeing on the death sentence for those who insult Islam, and 9% unsure if the death penalty should apply.
In addition, to name a few additional points of concern among many these conditions must be addressed:
* Mosques are proliferating across the landscape at breakneck speed, 80% of them preach jihad (through sermons and/or materials), and more than 95% of American Muslims attend such mosques.
So all-in-all, there are a lot of Muslims in America who are on board with Islamic law/jihad. It doesn’t matter if all of them are. Enough of them are.
What are we doing?!
We’re carefully planning our suicide, that’s what.
As Michael Walsh wrote at PJ Media: “There is no assimilating invaders who wish to replace your society with theirs, whether they call themselves ‘immigrants,’ ‘refugees’ or ‘asylum-seekers’…When it comes to the soul of a country, there really can be only one.”
So, they claim to come in peace. But what is the definition of Islam’s peace? The next chapter explains.
Destroyed by Peace
With more Muslims infiltrating into our great nation and other once-free nations, Satan’s hand grows stronger and stronger to fulfill his oath to eliminate God’s time in heaven. Spreading his soldiers, Islam, throughout the world (those seven heads) is Satan’s plan to conquer the entire world. And, Satan gets closer to succeeding with his plan every day. And, if our leaders are forced by radical and leftist pressure to fill our nation with more Muslims, Satan’s goal will grow closer to fulfillment. As a kind and generous nation should we continue to invite more into our nation as refugees?
That answer is clearly given in 2 John: 9-11. Verse 9 states that one who does not believe that Christ is the Son of God does not believe in God. Muslims reject Jesus as the Son of God. They claim Muhammad is higher than Jesus in God’s realm. This clearly infers that they are those tools of Satan. Then verse 10 adds:
“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed.” Verse 11 adds the association with Satan, “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
So what happens when we invite too many who deny that Jesus is the Son of God into our great nation; or into any nation? As their numbers grow through immigration or birth their presence becomes a greater threat to Christians and good citizens of a nation. It happens through stages of Islamic radicalization.
There are stages of radical Islamization. One source of this information is at this site:
Below is a brief summary of the stages of Islamization from this link. It explains the ‘peaceful to radical’ progression of Islam; that religion of ‘peace?’
“Four Stages of Islamic Treachery: Islamist Tactics Towards Non-Islamic Societies by Anonymous, 01 Sep, 2007. Based On The Evidence Of 1200 Years Of Islamic History:
STAGE ONE: INFILTRATION (These are those Muslims characterized as ‘peaceful.’)
First migration wave to target non-Muslim society. Appeal for humanitarian tolerance from the target non-Muslim society. Characterized by professed tolerance of others and their beliefs. Attempts to portray Islam as a peaceful religion and Muslims as victims of misunderstanding and racism. Images of women and children used to portray Muslims. Establishment of mosques as power bases (today globally funded by Gulf countries oil revenue). (Mosques are safe havens for Jihadi recruitment and subversive projects). Muslim leaders promote large push for increased Muslim births in target non-Muslim society to increase native Muslim population. Misrepresentation of their intentions or aims as a cover up for clandestine operations.
STAGE TWO: CONSOLIDATION OF POWER
Proselytizing efforts increase. Establishment and recruitment of fundamentalist Jihadi cells. Efforts to convert alienated segments of the population of target non-Muslim society to Islam. Revisionist efforts to Islamize history. Efforts to destroy all evidence of incriminating historical evidence and sources that reveal true character of Islamism. Intellectual Jihad to discredit non-Muslim culture. Assault on cultural assumptions and icons of the non-Muslim world, such as democracy, law and science. Increased dissemination of anti-western propaganda and anti-western psychological warfare.
Efforts to recruit allies who share similar goals (Communists, socialists, anti westerns, activists, anti-globalists, anarchists). Alliances with the enemies of the Western society particularly anti capitalism leftists. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” Attempts to indoctrinate children to Islamist viewpoint. Efforts to infiltrate education system to propagate pro-Islamic points of view. Increased efforts to intimidate, silence and eliminate non-Muslim intellectuals and leaders.
Efforts to introduce blasphemy laws into non-Muslim society in order to silence critics. Continued focus on enlarging Muslim population by increasing Muslim births and migration to target non-Muslim society. Use of first and second generation Muslim citizens of target non-Muslim society as Jihadist foot soldiers and public fronts. Use of charities to recruit supporters. Use of crime and fraud to obtain funds to finance activities. Covert efforts to bring about the destruction of non-Muslim society from within. Development of Muslim political base in target non-Muslim society.
Efforts to penetrate political and legal structure of country so as to support Islamic growth from within. Use of bribes and blackmail of non-Muslim authorities to get them to disregard establishment of subversive activities. Islamic Financial networks strengthened to fund political growth, large acquisition of land and resources by any means. (Today they are funded by Muslim charities; Gulf countries Oil revenue and criminal activities). Highly visible assassination of critics aimed to intimidate opposition. Tolerance of non-Muslims diminishes and greater demands are placed upon Muslims to adopt strict Islamic conduct. Clandestine amassing of weapons and explosives stores in hidden locations in target non-Muslim society. Continuous and covert attacks and challenges against target non-Muslim society leaders and religious symbols.
Overt disregard and rejection of target non-Muslim society’s legal system and culture. Efforts to undermine and destroy power base of non-Muslim religions such as Jews, Christians, Hindus or Buddhists in target non-Muslim society. Efforts to destroy the social structure of the country and bring the downfall of non-Muslim government.Use of Islamic gangs in campaign of fear and terror against Jews, Christians, Hindus and non-Muslims to reduce their populations and influence in the target non-Muslim society.
STAGE THREE: OPEN WAR WITH TARGET NON-ISLAMIST SOCIETY’S LEADERSHIP AND CULTURE
Large-scale destruction of population, assassinations, killings, bombings. Intentional efforts to spread chaos in the target country to undermine its government and culture. Acts of barbarity and fierceness as a deliberate policy intended to foster submission of opponents. Open and covert efforts to cause economic collapse of the society. All opposition, no matter what kind, is challenged and either eradicated or silenced.
Widespread ethnic cleansing with Islamic militias. Rejection and defiance of target society secular laws or culture. Murder of all opposition political, religious and intellectual leaders of target society. Murder of all moderate Muslim intellectuals who envision other alternatives to radical Islam. Toppling of government and usurpation of political power. Imposition of Sharia law. Mass execution of non-Muslims, ethnic cleansing.
STAGE FOUR: ISLAMIC THEOCRACY
The Qur’an and the Sharia becomes the “law of the land.” All non-Islamic human rights cancelled. Freedom of speech and the press eradicated. All Religions other than Islam are forbidden and destroyed. Enslavement and genocide of non-Muslim population. Destruction of all evidence of non-Muslim culture, groups and symbols in country.” End of Stages article.
Although Muslims claim to be peaceful and are members of a ‘religion of peace’ their peaceful actions depend upon the percentage of Muslims in the population of a country. The higher the percentage of Muslims, the less peace is allowed in that population. This is an article titled, ‘How Islam Manifests based on Percentage Muslim Population,’ submitted by Edward Cline as reported at this link:
“In remembrance of those who died 10 years ago on the 11th of September 2001 – a time when Islam declared its full hand and its ultimate intention for the non-Islamic West.
As I often discuss the impact of Islam, and particularly Islamic immigration, upon Western nations on this blog, I thought it may be worthwhile citing material which details the typical impact of Islam on the host nation based on Muslim population as a percentage of the greater whole. I have shortened the main article and highlighted the Muslim percentage makeup of the various nations cited. For the complete article please refer to the following link above. The original article is titled, ‘Jihad by the Numbers.’
It is no accident or fluke of history that Islamists – Hamas, Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad, Saudi Wahhabists, the whole ménage of Islamists and Jihadists — admire both Hitler and Nazism. Their hatred of Jews and Israel is merely one facet of that pathology. As Nazism required the complete submission of the individual to Party ideology and an unthinking, unwavering deference to Hitler, Islam requires the complete submission of the individual to Islam and an unthinking, unwavering deference to Allah and Mohammed. Islamists have long recognized that both the method and the ends of Nazism were in complete agreement and practical accord with their own. The “mechanics” of a functioning Islam differ in no fundamental way from the “mechanics” of a functioning Nazism or any other brand of total collectivism.
With that in mind, here is a set of significant statistics forwarded to me by a friend. It charts the progression of Islamic Jihad, both soft and hard methods, whose purpose is to establish a global caliphate, especially in the West.
It begins by stating: “Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.”
I would disagree. It is definitely a religion and a political system combined. Any attempt to “separate” mosque and state would emasculate Islam. I have argued this point in past commentaries and will not dwell on it here. And cults, if not opposed by reason and kept by it on the far fringes of a civilized society, have a tendency to become religions that may become state policies. Ecology was once a “cult.” Today we have the Environmental Protection Agency.
It goes on to state: “Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.”
Or a mask, or a ruse. But no one should doubt how seriously Islamists and Muslims in general take the religious component. Islam is a barbaric but fully integrated system, perhaps more lethally integrated than was Nazism. “Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’”
I would defend anyone’s right to believe in Islam. The question is: How could one truly practice Islam without declaring Jihad on others? After a Muslim has won the “internal struggle” or Jihad within himself, the next step is to wage it against all others. To refrain from that part of Jihad is to risk the accusation of being a slacker or pseudo-Muslim. From the first stage to the last, all such effort constitutes “working towards the Prophet and Allah.”
“When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agreed to ‘the reasonable’ Muslims demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source: CIA: The World Fact Book, 2007).
(Author: Before we begin this analysis, please keep in mind that this ‘dangerous peace’ is identified in the Bible at Daniel 8:25: “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many.” Therefore, Muslims with their ‘Religion of Peace’ are destroying many. This analysis continues at one percent):
One Percent: “As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country it will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.” Here is where it becomes interesting. Note throughout the exponential scale of Islamic influence as the percentage of Muslim population per country increases. Comments in square brackets are my corrective interjections.
United States: 1.0
Two to Three Percent: “At 2% and 3% they [Muslims] begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.”
United Kingdom: 2.7
Five Percent and Over: “From 5% on they [Muslims] exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (“clean” by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply (United States).”
The Netherlands: 5.5
Trinidad & Tobago: 5.8
At this point, they [Muslims] will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, or Islamic law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
Ten Percent and Over: “When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris – car burning). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam, Denmark – Mohammed cartoons, murder of Theo van Gogh).”
The one anomaly in this set of statistics is Israel, which has not experienced uprisings and threats of violence. Its Arab or Muslim population enjoys equal political rights with Jewish Israelis. The suicide bombings and rocket attacks that have killed hundreds have been perpetrated by outsiders.
Twenty Percent and Over: “After reaching 20% [of a population] expect hair-trigger rioting, Jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Forty Percent and Over: “After 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:”
Sixty Percent and Over: “From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and jizya, the tax placed on [conquered] infidels:”
Eighty Percent and Over: “After 80%, expect state-run ethnic cleansing and genocide:”
United Arab Emirates: 96.0
I question the inclusion of “Palestine” in this set. “Palestine” simply means space occupied by stateless “Palestinians” in Gaza and the West Bank, and is the name of the state which Islamists wish to replace Israel, once it is destroyed. Turkey, after decades of having a secular, non-religious government, is beginning to turn “religious,” and seems to be yearning for the kind of Muslim government that cleansed the country in 1915 of non-Muslim Armenians in a genocide that predates the Holocaust.
One Hundred Percent: “100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ – the Islamic House of Peace’ [more correctly, dar-al-Islam, or Land of Islam]. There is supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim.”
Saudi Arabia: 100.0
“Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons. ‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel.’ Leon Uris, The Haj.”
(Author’s Note: This blood lust of Muslims killing one another is described in Revelation 6:3-4, “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” This one rider describes Islam. When Muslims have no one else to kill they kill ‘one another.’)
“It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average[s] would indicate.”
“Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.” End of Article.
So, in conclusion, should we invite Muslims who worship Satan into our great nation, founded on Christian principles? Christ answers this question in 2 John, 9-11:
“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, and neither bid him God speed. For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
Muslims refute the idea that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. They consider Jesus a subservient prophet below Muhammad. Therefore, in God’s words; we must not allow them into our nation to destroy us and our ‘One nation under God with liberty and justice for all.’
Therefore, their war on God, Christians, and those not of their faith must continue. They have no choice.
Yet many of those opposed to Donald Trump and everything he stands for continue to invite those destined to kill us into our great nation. Why are they so determined to destroy Donald Trump and those in his administration who support his policies? I answered this question recently in a blog I posted on Authorsden on April 1, 2017. This is that posted message:
1A Message to Trump Haters
A CHANGE OF VIEW MIGHT BE IN ORDER
“While many Leftists, Liberals, and Democrats are totally focused only on that one goal of destroying the presidency of Donald Trump, they are blindly oblivious to the greatest threat that faces the world today. That threat is world turmoil and chaos. They put our nation in peril as they purge toward selfish destruction of positioning for personal power votes.
Are these ‘destroyers of Trump’ so unaware of current events that they would destroy our nation in their hell-bent ambition to destroy one man? They hold the invitation doors of world disaster wide open for the beast who proclaims he will destroy us; while they demean the only leader positioned to minimize that coming terror. That great day of terror by Satan’s beast, Islam, grows nearer as more of Satan’s army is positioned throughout the world; including our great nation, America.
That coming terror is the sudden attack by Iran upon Israel, supported by their Muslim brothers who have been moving into place in a process called ‘Settlement’ or ‘Silent Jihad.’ When Iran strikes, their ‘silent brothers’ will also strike to cripple those nations who might otherwise come to Israel’s aid. But you say, ‘Iran can’t develop that nuclear bomb.’ They don’t have to. Barack Obama gave Iran 107 billion dollars in untraceable cash; so they can buy that technology from North Korea, who is surging forward with that development for them? How many nuclear bombs can 107 billion dollars buy? And, North Korea certainly needs financial help.
Chapters 12 and 13 in Revelation introduce the time line and the actors in this atrocity. For example, Chapter 12 gives the time line for establishment of the Roman Catholic Church and the rise of Islam.
Read it very carefully to understand that Jesus was swept away to Egypt for three and a half years for protection against King Herod. Three hundred and fifty years later Christianity was protected by ‘two wings of a great eagle.’ This was Constantine the Great who formed the Roman Catholic Church. The Church protected Christianity another three hundred and fifty years, until 700 AD, when Islam was created to eliminate Jews and Christians. Their goal has not changed; Islam’s only task is to eliminate all other religions on earth. Satan has given them power to perform this task. (Chapter 13, verse 2)
Chapter 13 names three of Satan’s supporters. A perfect example of event and time is verse 5: “And power was given unto him to ‘continue’ forty and two months.” This describes the time between Muhammad’s being poisoned and his death – he ‘continued.’ Muhammad was the ‘first beast’ also known as the Antichrist.
The one who followed him was labeled the ‘second beast.’ This second beast claims to be a Christian, but his words were spoken only in favor of that dragon, Satan. It’s not difficult to guess who this person is; he lives among us today; and he gave 107 billion dollars of our money to support the great Islamic terror base, Iran. But what about the time of the great event; that war?
Daniel 9:27 says a covenant will be confirmed ‘with many’ for one week, meaning seven years. Then, in the midst of that time that covenant will be abandoned. The other information suggests Israel will be attacked at this time. Another suggestion is that it will be three and a half years after the beginning of the covenant. That Iran Nuclear agreement ‘arranged’ by Barack Obama was confirmed in July, 2015. That strongly suggests that Israel will be attacked in early 2019.
Donald Trump’s presidency goes past that year, 2019. Do we want our country as divided as it is now when that world horror begins? Do the Democrats and other Liberals really care? Are they still totally dedicated to invite in as many Muslims as they can; hoping only to get their votes when they arrive so they can place themselves in a position to further divide and destroy our great nation? That can be their only aim and goal.
The future of our great nation has no place in their thoughts or personal desires. The future of our nation, and the security of the world, as much as possible, depends upon us coming together as ‘One Nation Under God’ and truly understanding the meaning of this phrase.
At this moment in time and history, Donald Trump and the people surrounding him in his administration are the only ones with the knowledge, courage, conviction, and Godly Spirit who can protect us when that day of horror arrives. We must, all of us, support this man whether we like him personally or not. We must support him; not destroy our nation in our personal vendetta to destroy the person he is. He has demonstrated courage and unyielding resolve in the face of horrible torment from the many Trump Haters. Is there any Democrat alive today who could face this level of animosity and still remain focused on positive greatness for our nation? Name one who could hold up positively under this unrelenting barrage of discouragement and hate.
Liberals and other ‘Trump Haters’ beware. You are inviting those into our nation only to become voters to support your personal power aspirations. Chances are the world will be in turmoil before your opportunity to gain personal power arrives. Offer support to the one who will try to save your future. He could even be that one called ‘Apollyon or Abaddon’ who will lead the destruction against that beast, Islam who will bring horror onto the world. (Revelation 9:11)” End of blog.
The next chapter gives more information about a war. This war, however, pertains only to that great war against Christians. It has existed for centuries; and will not end until the great war is concluded. Barack Obama has also played his important part in this war against Christians.
The War on Christians
Obama’s blasphemy against the real God started early in his administration. On April 16, 2009, Barack Obama required the monogram for the name of Jesus be covered before he made his speech at Georgetown University. The monogram above an archway was covered with black painted plywood. Certainly he would not consider this blasphemy or an attack on Christianity – black painted plywood covering the symbol of Jesus. This is a summary of that event reported by CNSNews.com:
“ Amidst all of the American flags and presidential seals, there was something missing when President Barack Obama gave an economic speech at Georgetown University this week -- Jesus. The White House asked Georgetown to cover a monogram symbolizing Jesus' name in Gaston Hall, which Obama used for his speech, according to CNSNews.com. The gold "IHS" monogram inscribed on a pediment in the hall was covered over by a piece of black-painted plywood, and remained covered over the next day, CNSNews.com reported.”
The Washington Times’ Belief Blog asked the university about the presidential request: While the “IHS” directly behind where Obama spoke was covered over, CNSNews.com said the monogram was still visible in 26 other places in the hall during his speech. Those areas just weren’t as prominent. The Belief Blog talked with the Rev. Thomas Reese, a senior fellow at the Woodstock Institute at Georgetown University, who said he didn’t think “this is motivated by theology, but by communications strategy.”
The blog also talked with Catholic University spokesman Victor Nakas, who felt a bit more strongly on the subject: “I can’t imagine, as the bishops’ university and the national university of the Catholic Church, that we would ever cover up our religious art or signage for any reason,” Mr. Nakas wrote. “Our Catholic faith is integral to our identity as an institution of higher education.”
Should this covering of the symbol of Jesus be considered another ‘denial?’ Perhaps Obama has set a new record. Peter denied Jesus only three times. Perhaps Obama and his close followers know no limit to the number of times they will deny Jesus and insult and disavow Christianity. Under this environment of anti-Christian actions and examples, many other actions of war against Christians routinely continue to occur. Following are seven clear and recent examples reported by John Hawkins at Townhall.com. The article published September 17, 2013 is titled: ‘7 Examples of Discrimination Against Christians in America.’
7 Examples of Discrimination Against Christians in America.
“The majority of Americans are Christians, but we’re not treated with respect by the culture, the schools, or by our politicians. “Vengeance” may be the Lord’s to dish out, but that doesn’t mean Christians have to support the people who are attacking us or meekly stand by when other followers of Christ are denigrated and oppressed for their faith. The habitual wimpiness of so many Christians is particularly grating because when Christians shine a spotlight on these attacks and say, “That’s enough,” more often than not we win. So, if Christians across the country were consistently willing to speak out and take action, you’d be surprised at how quickly our culture would begin to change. If that happens, instead of seeing this many incidents every year (All of these happened in 2013), they’d be a once in a blue moon occurrence.
1) Florida Ministry Told To Choose Between Jesus And Helping The Poor: For the past 31 years, the Christian ministry has been providing food to the hungry in Lake City, Fla. without any problems. But all that changed when they said a state government worker showed up to negotiate a new contract. …(A) state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read ‘Jesus is Lord’ and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.” When the government tells the Christian Service Center it has to give up on Christ or quit using USDA food to help the poor, that’s religious discrimination.
2) Billy Graham Evangelistic Association: Obama’s IRS Was “Targeting and Attempting to Intimidate Us:” It’s well known that the IRS targeted Obama’s political enemies in the Tea Party, but the IRS also targeted his Christian enemies in the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, said that the IRS notified the organizations in September that it was conducting a “review” of their activities for tax year 2010.
“While these audits not only wasted taxpayer money, they wasted money contributed by donors for ministry purposes as we had to spend precious resources servicing the IRS agents in our offices,” Graham wrote in the letter, which was shared with POLITICO. “I believe that someone in the administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us. This is morally wrong and unethical – indeed some would call it ‘un-American.’”
Graham said that “in light” of the IRS admission that it targeted tea party groups for added scrutiny, “I do not believe that the IRS audit of our two organizations last year is a coincidence – or justifiable.”
The IRS would certainly deny targeting Graham’s group because it’s a Christian organization, but of course, the IRS would deny that it targeted the Tea Party groups for political reasons as well.
3) California Christians Found “Not Guilty” of Reading Bible Near Government Offices:” A court has said that a pair of Christians were ‘allowed’ to read the Bible aloud outside the Department of Motor Vehicles in Hemet, California. Wasn’t it kind of the government courts in California to say that these Christians were allowed to have their rights to free religious expression? …Back in 2011 Mark Mackey and Bret Coronado were arrested and charged with misdemeanor offenses for reading the Bible outside the DMV location. … But on August 13, Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer found the men ‘not guilty’ of any offenses. …Interestingly, the judge also pointed out that the law prosecutors tried to invoke was likely unconstitutional as it gave law enforcement overbroad powers to quash public gatherings in the first place. Sadly, this case did not go toward settling the constitutionality of the law, but it was a victory of sorts to have the judge even mention the fact.”
Yes, there were actually Americans arrested for reading the Bible on public property. What do you think the chances are that two Muslims reading the Quran would have been arrested under the same circumstances?
4) Colorado Baker Faces Year In Jail For Refusing To Make Cake For Gay Wedding: You can support gay marriage or you can be Christian, but you can’t do both. You can pretend to do both, but you’re giving up your Christian beliefs to be more palatable to people who are hostile to Christianity. The folks at Masterpiece Cakeshop simply declined to make a cake for a gay wedding because it conflicted with their Christian beliefs. They learned that’s now illegal.
According to attorney Nicolle Martin, the owners of a Colorado bakery could face a year in prison for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, Jim Hoft reported at the Gateway Pundit Monday.
“The complainants can sue him civilly in the regular courts system or he can potentially be prosecuted by the district attorney for up to twelve months in jail,” Martin told Hoft.
In June, the Advocate said the Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a discrimination complaint against the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver after the bakers refused to bake a cake for Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, a Denver area gay couple, last year.
But Jack Phillips, one of the owners, declined to make the cake citing his Christian beliefs.
“We would close down the bakery before we compromised our beliefs,” he told KCNC, adding that protests and petitions will not make him change his mind.
We have Americans being threatened with jail time for doing nothing more than refusing to affirmatively sanction an event that goes against Christianity. In other words, liberals aren’t just trying to make gay marriage legal; they’re trying to make opposition to gay marriage illegal.
5) Air Force Veteran Faces A Court Martial For Opposing Gay Marriage: Under Barack Obama, the military has become aggressively anti-Christian and pro-gay to such an extent that the troops are no longer even allowed to privately oppose gay marriage.
Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk found himself at odds with his Lackland Air Force Base commander after he objected to her plans to severely punish an instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality. During the conversation, his commander ordered him to share his personal views on homosexuality.
“I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” he told me. “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”
Last week, Monk was supposed to meet with an Air Force investigator tasked with gathering facts about the complaint. But when he arrived, Monk was immediately read his Miranda Rights and accused of providing false statements in a conversation Monk had with Fox’s Todd Starnes.
After he was relieved of his duties, the Liberty Institute filed a religious discrimination complaint on his behalf. …“I immediately got the sense that this was retaliation against me for coming forward with my religious discrimination complaint,” he said.
The accusations against Monk are a court-martial offense in the Air Force – and it’s quite possible that the 19-year veteran with a spotless record could be booted out of the military because of his Christian beliefs. And he’s not the only Christian at Lackland Air Force Base facing persecution for opposing gay marriage, according to Monk’s pastor.
If you think the military has problems recruiting soldiers now, let the military keep persecuting Christians for their faith and see how well it does over the long haul. Of course, that wouldn’t upset the Left one bit, but the rest of us should be concerned.
6) Government Forces Churches To Get Permits For Baptisms: Nevertheless, the Park Service recently began a new policy requiring churches that wished to hold baptisms in public waters to apply for a special permit at least 48 hours in advance of the baptism. The Park Service justified this recent demand by saying that the permits were necessary to “maintain park natural/cultural resources and quality visitor experiences, specific terms and conditions have been established.”
On August 21, Rep. Jason Smith (Missouri, R) heeded the complaints of his constituents and wrote a letter to the NPS asking what the heck was going on…
Between citizen outrage and Rep. Smith’s threat to bring the matter before the full Congress, however, the Park Service quickly reversed its new policy, writing to the Congressman that, “As of today, the park’s policy has been clarified to state that no permit will be required for baptisms within the Riverways. I can assure you the National Park Service has no intention of limiting the number of baptisms performed within the park.”
When the government demands that a church get a permit to do baptisms, it’s also tacitly saying it has the right to deny that permit. That’s not acceptable.
7) Florida Professor Demands Student Stomp On Jesus: It all started with a conflict between an antagonistic professor and one brave student at Florida Atlantic University. Ryan Rotela was told by his professor to write Jesus Christ’s name on a piece of paper and stomp on it. Rotela defiantly refused and in retaliation, a formal disciplinary action was started against him.
But, before the system could roll over Rotela, a funny thing happened. The word about what was happening to him got out, Christians became outraged, and suddenly the university’s tune quickly changed. “FAU’s Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Charles Brown, has since issued a groveling formal apology.” Next thing you know, the disciplinary action was waved off.
Now, comes word that the professor, Deandre Poole, has been put on administrative leave following a withering public response, that included complaints from the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott.
Unfortunately, that story didn’t have a happy ending. Even after the governor got involved, Deandre Poole still kept his job. However, had Christians not risen up, the student who refused to stomp on Jesus would have been the one punished while the professor would have paid no price at all. Moreover, you can be sure there won’t be any more Jesus stomping going on in the classrooms at Florida Atlantic University any time soon.
If there’s a lesson here, it’s that when Christians refuse to back down, we usually win. What that means is if enough Christians stand up for our faith, you’ll be surprised how fast the people in power lose their nerve about going after us.” End of article.
Theamericanthinker.com reports another article titled, ‘Christianity Under Attack in America.’ It was written by Janet Levy, October 25, 2013. It reads:
“According to information released at a May 9, 2013 press conference by the families of Navy SEALs killed in an August 2011 helicopter shoot-down in Afghanistan, “military brass prohibited any mention of a Judeo-Christian G-d” and “invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team VI heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah.”
The accusations arose over a “ramp ceremony” held at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan as flag-draped caskets of the dead soldiers were loaded onto a plane for transport back to the United States. The shocking words of the Muslim cleric, revealed in later translations, were spoken at a memorial service meant to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. They were yet another example of the abject disrespect of Christians and Christianity endemic to the Muslim world.
Here at home, Christianity and Christian religious practices are also under attack, but in more subtle ways and under a misinterpretation of the principle of freedom of religion. In the United States, that legal doctrine is cited to marginalize Christian prayer and traditions, while, at the same time, dramatically accommodating and even expanding Muslim religious practices. Myriad examples exist.
During the recent government shutdown, Catholic priests were warned that they could be arrested for celebrating Mass, even if performed on a voluntary basis. Under Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s direction and determination was that priests do not “contribute to the morale” and “well-being” of military personnel.” Thus, offering of the sacraments was prohibited and the Eucharist placed under lock and key. Curiously, no mention was made of curtailing religious freedom for Muslim service members or furloughing imams.
This prohibition against Christian religious practice is not limited to the military. Police throughout the land also frequently come down hard against Christians. In 2010, a group of students from the Arizona-based Wickenburg Christian Academy were ordered by a police officer to cease their quiet prayers on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. The officer cited a statute that prohibits demonstrations on the steps, but no official policy bars prayer at that location.
In June of 2010, David Wood and two other Christian missionaries were arrested by Dearborn, Michigan, police at the annual Arab festival for discussing Christianity on a public sidewalk outside the event. The men, who have since been acquitted, were charged with disturbing the peace and spent the night in jail.
Contrast these incidents with a massive public display of praying Muslims during the annual Muslim Day Parade in New York City. Muslims, who are protected each year during the event by Muslim NYPD officers, are free to engage in mass prayer, even prostrating themselves on the streets of midtown Manhattan. Vehicular traffic halts and participants freely harass non-Muslims who attempt to pass through the area on foot.
Meanwhile, the ACLU has been at the forefront of an extensive effort to ban Christian prayer from public schools under the “separation of church and state” provision of the First Amendment. This is a signature issue for the “civil rights” organization. However, for Muslim prayers, the organization reverses its interpretation and fights for student rights to engage in prayer.
For example, when Carver Elementary School in San Diego instituted a 15-minute prayer period during class time for Muslim students in 2004, the ACLU endorsed the practice. ACLU spokesman Kevin Keenan said the group supported Muslim prayer under the First Amendment’s prohibition against impeding religion. In this way, the ACLU was “honoring constitutional standards for freedom of religion.”
Again in 2010, the ACLU mustered only mild to nonexistent concern when 6th-graders from a Wellesley, Massachusetts's middle school took a field trip to a local mosque at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and engaged in prayer. Parents were told that students would learn about the architecture of the building and observe a midday prayer service. But once at the mosque -- which is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, known supporters of Islamic terrorism -- students were told by a mosque official that "Allah is the only G-d" and taught how to recite the midday prayer. After being encouraged to join the Muslim men, some of the boys prostrated themselves to Allah.
Meanwhile, in Michigan, Dearborn public schools have a policy of accommodating Muslim prayers at school during school hours, as well as ignoring unexcused absences for Muslims to leave school early for Friday prayers. Yet, in 2009, after a Muslim organization complained about permission slips given to Christian students to attend off-site after-school Bible study, issuance of the slips was discontinued.
In addition to police, the ACLU, and schools, U.S. courts have also sided with the Islamic religion and against Christianity. In 2001, the Byron Union School District in Byron, California instituted a three-week unit on Islam for 7th-graders. Students took Muslim names, recited Islamic prayers, and celebrated Ramadan. When parents sued the school on the grounds that the course was “officially endorsing a religion,” the U.S. Supreme Court rejected their appeal, leaving intact an earlier ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed that the unit did not violate the Constitution and had an “instructional purpose.”
In 2009, the same court of appeals upheld a ban by Henry Jackson High School officials in Everett, Washington against an instrumental performance of Ave Maria at a 2006 commencement ceremony. A student futilely challenged the school’s determination that the song was “an obvious religious piece” at a graduation that should be “strictly secular.”
Government entities also bear down on the Christian religion. After allowing baptisms in Sinking Creek in the Ozarks for an almost uninterrupted 50-year span, the National Park Service in August notified Gladden Baptist Church in Salem, Missouri that permits would now be required in advance of baptism ceremonies in the waterway. The requirement was later rescinded in response to the intervention of local Congressman Jason Smith.
And this month, in Ovid, Colorado, the director of a city-owned cemetery initially refused to inscribe the Ichthus or "Jesus fish" on the tombstone of a local preacher's wife on the grounds that some people might be offended. Despite the fact that the cemetery is filled with headstones inscribed with religious symbols and Biblical verses, city officials refused to come to the family's aid. The cemetery director defended his position with a logic-defying hypothetical: "What if someone wanted to put a swastika?" -- thereby disrespectfully equating a representation of Christ with a symbol associated with Nazi Germany. The city reversed itself only after public outcry and media attention.
The instances listed above make it readily apparent that the First Amendment is often conveniently misinterpreted to buttress the assault on the Christian religion and its expression, practice, and traditions. In this way, Christianity is being insidiously expunged from public life using false legal pretenses. The legitimate interpretation of the provisions of the First Amendment, which include prohibitions against government interference in public religious expression and the establishment of a national religion, has been twisted to prohibit Christian prayer in public places and schools. This is a false reading of “separation of church and state.”
Yet, as the instances listed above and many others illustrate, this interpretation doesn’t apply to “mosque and state.” Freedom of religion has come to mean no freedom for the practice of Christianity but ample freedom to practice Islam. If the war on Christianity in America isn’t halted soon, Barack Obama’s statement that “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” will certainly become a reality.” End of article.
Air Force Removes Bible: By Todd Starnes, Foxnews.com, 31 March 2014. Below is the article:
“On March 14 Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh told members of the House Armed Services committee that there was no war on religious liberty.
“The single biggest frustration I’ve had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution inside the United States Air Force,” the general told lawmakers. “It is not true.”
“Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) told me the Air Force seems to be the worst offender when it comes to attacks on religious liberty.
If that’s true, perhaps Gen. Welsh could explain why a Bible was removed from a POW/MIA Missing Man Table at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. The removal of the Good Book was first reported by the Gannett-owned newspaper Florida Today.
Base officials confirmed to Fox News Monday that the entire Missing Man Table display had been removed from a dining hall because of the Bible. A press statement said the inclusion of the Bible ignited “controversy and division.”
Missing Man Tables are a long honored military tradition. The tables serve as a reminder of the plight of brave Americans who are missing in action or who are being held prisoner of war. The display includes a white table cloth setting with an inverted glass, a plate with lemon and salt, a single rose, a candle and a Bible.
Each item is an integral part of the Missing Man Table & Honors Ceremony, according to the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia.
The Bible represents the strength gained through faith in our country, founded as one nation under god, to sustain those lost from our midst,” the official ceremony document states.
However, someone at Patrick Air Force Base objected to the Bible’s placement on the table.
The following is the Air Force’s explanation of what happened:
“The 45th Space Wing deeply desires to honor America’s Prisoners and War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA) personnel. Unfortunately, the Bible’s presence or absence on the table at the Riverside Dining Facility ignited controversy and division, distracting from the table’s primary purpose of honoring POWs/MIAs. Consequently, we temporarily replaced the table with the POW/MIA flag in an effort to show our continued support of these heroes while seeking an acceptable solution to the controversy. After consultation with several relevant organizations, we now intend to re-introduce the POW/MIA table in a manner inclusive of all POWs/MIAs as well as Americans everywhere.”
The Air Force did not say when the Missing Man Table would be returned. Nor did they say whether the Bible would be included in the display. They also declined to explain what they meant by the word “inclusive.”
Retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, now an executive vice president with the Family Research Council, denounced the Air Force Academy’s actions.
“I’m still looking for somebody in a leadership position in the Air Force with an ounce of courage,” he told me. “They buckle to an extreme minority group every time and constitutionally they are simply wrong.”
Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) told me the Air Force seems to be the worst offender when it comes to attacks on religious liberty.
“It’s very disconcerting that all it takes is for someone to be offended by that – and it comes down,” he said. “The First Amendment is very clear on this. Speech may offend some people – in this case maybe Christianity offends some people in the Air Force – but that doesn’t matter. We’re still allowed to speak about our closely held beliefs.”
Fleming accused the Air Force of ignoring the law.
“Since when does one unnamed, unknown individual have veto power over the First Amendment rights of all people in the military and in this case the Air Force?” he asked.
Ann Mills-Griffiths is the chairman of the National League of POW/MIA Families. She told me she was glad the Air Force base is going to reinstall the Missing Man Table, but she wonders if the new display will include the Bible.
She said the Bible is “part of the Missing Man Honor Ceremony and we hope it will be restored to what it was.”
“Our country is one nation under God,” she said. “It doesn’t seem outrageous or unreasonable to have the Bible on the table.”
Ron Crews, the executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, told me he hopes the Air Force will restore the Bible to its rightful place. He called it a symbol of hope and courage for military personnel and their families.
“It is sad when military traditions honoring our POWs and MIAs are trumped by pursuits to remove any vestige of the faith that has sustained our warriors since Valley Forge,” Crews told me.
Earlier this month, a cadet at the Air Force Academy removed an inspirational Bible verse from a white board hanging outside his dorm room. Air Force officials said the cadet “voluntarily” removed the verse after someone complained.
However, Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry said he was told by officials at the Air Force Academy that had the cadet not voluntarily removed the verse, he would have been ordered to remove it.
Berry told OneNewsNow.com the incident was a clear denial of the cadet’s right of freedom of religious expression.
He said, “Well, the Air Force’s official policy – and this is coming from the very top, from the Pentagon level – is that the term ‘free exercise of religion’ does not extend to speech of this kind,” Berry told the news organization. “Either verbal speech or writing a verse on a whiteboard, he said, would not fall under the protection of free exercise of religion as it is written in the First Amendment.”
I would certainly be remiss if I did not extend my thanks to the staff of Florida Today, for first reporting this latest incident of religious liberty under attack.
General Welsh’s remarks from March 14 bear repeating. He claimed there is no religious persecution happening in the Air Force. If that’s the case, sir, what have you done with the Bible? End of article.
Another article about the Air Force and Bibles, by Thechristianexaminer.com
The Air Force has removed Bibles from its list of items that are provided in on-base lodging facilities.
The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers filed a complaint when an atheist, stationed at Kadena Air Base in Japan, contacted them to find out why there was a Bible in the Air Force lodging.
The Air Force responded by removing the Bibles from Air Force hotels and from its checklist of items that are provided in approved lodging facilities.
According to a statement released by the National Prayer Caucus, “After receiving a complaint by the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, the Air Force will remove ‘Is a Bible provided?’ from the checklist that staff at Air Force Inns use when ensuring that rooms comply with lodging standards.”
Col. Ron Crews, executive director for the Chaplain Alliance expressed his concern over the decision by Air Force officials to remove Bibles from the checklist of items in on-base lodging rooms stating that it is creating a “religion free” zone in the Air Force.
“From General George Washington until today military personnel have taken counsel, received comfort, and been encouraged by biblical texts,” said Crews. “These Bibles cost the Air Force nothing, and their presence is legally legitimate; therefore, no reason exists for the Air Force to have retreated in the face of the small anti-religious group that demanded removal of the books.”
Air Force Services Agency spokesman Michael Dickerson has reportedly stated that the Air Force has “no requirement to have Bibles in the lodging checklist.”
“While there is no requirement to have them, why should there be a requirement to remove them?” Col. Crews said. “They are provided free of charge as a service. No airman is required to pick one up or read it. The Bibles are merely there to use if desired. This pending decision is one more example of religious cleansing in the Air Force, and it must stop.”
Crews also noted that other faith groups have also provided religious materials, such as the Koran.
An Air Force official said, “After a legal review, the Air Force Services Agency determined that there was no legal reason to have the question on the lodging checklist.” Bibles are placed in Air Force Inn rooms by the Gideons, at no cost to the government.
Chick-fil-A Banned From Donating 200 Sandwiches to a School Fundraiser
“Chick-fil-A BANNED From Donating 200 Sandwiches to a School Fundraiser For The Most Ridiculous Reason By Steve Straub On September 12, 2014:
A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Ventura, California had offered to donate 200 meals worth $600 to the local high school for a fundraising event. In the past this Chick-fil-A location had donated thousands of dollars to the school.
This time around the school’s principal banned Chik-fil-A from contributing sandwiches to the fundraiser because someone might get offended over the stance towards gay marriage held by the President of the company.
From Fox News:
Feathers have been ruffled at California’s Ventura High School, where the principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.
What, pray tell, could people find offensive about a plump juicy chicken breast tucked between two buttered buns?
Were English teachers put off by the restaurant chain’s grammatically challenged bovine pitchmen?
Did the waffle fries and banana pudding milkshakes exceed the nutritional limits deemed acceptable by the federal government?
The answer, dear readers, is no. It seems Principal Val Wyatt’s ban has less to do with poultry and more to do with politics.
“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.
It was a sentiment supported by Trudy Tuttle Ariaga, superintendent of the Ventura Unified School District.
“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga told CBS News in Los Angeles.
Remember when Chick-fil-A told their customers that gay people were not welcome at their stores? Me neither.
The local Chick-fil-A franchise has a storied history of supporting the school district – to the tune of thousands of dollars – and owner Robert Shaffer had generously offered to give the booster club 200 meals for a “back-to-school” event on Wednesday at which they expected to raise $1,600 for the football team, the Ventura Star reported.
“That would have gone toward the football program, everything from uniforms to food for the boys,” booster club president Dan Swim told the Star. “We don’t charge money for the boys to play football.”
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t have a stance on gay marriage,” Shaffer told the Star. “We treat everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of their religion or sexual orientation, with honor, dignity and respect.”
Helmet Cross Decal Banned From Arkansas State University Football Team
From: Religion News Service, By Dan Wolken Posted: 09/12/2014 10:40 am EDT Updated: 09/12/2014 10:59 am EDT: KAIT-Jonesboro, AR-News, weather, sports.
(RNS) Arkansas State is removing a Christian cross decal from the back of its football helmets after a complaint that it violated separation of church and state, the university said Wednesday (Sept. 10).
Athletics director Terry Mohajir said he wanted to fight the decision because the decal was intended to honor former player Markel Owens and equipment manager Barry Weyer, who both died this year. However, Mohajir said he had little choice but to follow advice from the university’s legal counsel to remove or modify the symbol.
“My job is to support our players and our coaches in their expression of any type of grief, and that’s what I was doing,” Mohajir said.
Rebecca Markert, an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, said her organization had been looking into the matter since hearing about the decals over the weekend but had not yet lodged a formal complaint with Arkansas State.
“That is great news,” Markert said of the school’s decision. “Putting religious imagery on public school property is unconstitutional.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation has been looking into potential church-state separation issues at college football programs during the past year, particularly at Clemson and Ole Miss. Markert said the organization recently filed an open records request with Ole Miss regarding its chaplain program.
According to documents provided to USA Today by Arkansas State, Jonesboro, Ark., attorney Louis Nisenbaum sent an email to University Counsel Lucinda McDaniel on Saturday, pointing out that he noticed the crosses while watching Arkansas State’s game at Tennessee earlier that day.
“That is a clear violation of the Establishment Clause as a state endorsement of the Christian religion,” Nisenbaum wrote. “Please advise whether you agree and whether ASU will continue this practice.”
On Monday, McDaniel emailed Mohajir, saying she found no specific legal cases that addressed crosses on football helmets but recommending that the bottom of the cross could be cut off so the symbol would be a plus sign.
“While we could argue that the cross with the initials of the fallen student and trainer merely memorialize their passing, the symbol we have authorized to convey that message is a Christian cross,” she wrote. “Persons viewing the helmets will, and have, seen the symbol as a cross and interpreted that symbol as an endorsement of the Christian religion. This violates the legal prohibition of endorsing religion.”
Mohajir said the original idea for the decal came from a leadership committee of players and that wearing it was voluntary.
“Any time our players have an expression of faith and wanting to honor two members of the football program, I’m 100 percent behind them,” he said.
A nation accepting ungodly acts is also defiled
“Leviticus 18 lists many acts of nakedness and sexual activity such as adultery and incest not tolerated by God. Verses 22 and 23 specifically identify homosexuality as an abomination, and bestiality as confusion. However as Leviticus pertains to America, and other countries, verses 24 through 28 are most applicable. In summary, those verses state that if a nation accepts these ungodly actions by its individuals then that nation is also defiled: “therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.” 27: “For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land it defiled.” 28: That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.”
Perhaps this next article gives an example of this idea. It’s from Godfatherpolitics.com. and was submitted by Dave Jolly in September, 2013. The article begins:
“Gay activists are successfully getting laws passed in cities around the country that discriminate against Christians. The laws are called nondiscrimination laws by the LGBT activists pushing through one city council after another. So far, over 180 cities have passed these so-called nondiscrimination ordinances.
In essence the laws provide special protection to LGBT individuals while at the same time; they place huge restrictions on the religious rights of Christians. For instance, the San Antonio city council voted 8-3 to pass their ordinance that bans any form of discrimination based upon sexual orientation or gender identity. Their ban went so far as to forbid anyone who does not openly accept or support gay rights from conducting any business with the city. Violating the ordinance is a Class C misdemeanor that could result in a fine of up to $500 per day.
If a pastor is preaching on Sunday and says anything about homosexuality being a sin in the eyes of God, he could be arrested for violating the ordinance. If you are in a private conversation with someone and say that you believe homosexuality is a sin or that you are uncomfortable around someone because they are gay, you could be arrested. The way LGBT activists operate these days, I can see them visiting churches just to try to catch the pastor or someone else saying anything against homosexuality just so they can run to the city to have them arrested.
This is the concern of many Christian leaders throughout San Antonio and other cities that have passed similar laws. Jacob Herrera with Faith Outreach International commented, saying:
“The right for us to speak out and say, ‘I disagree. It doesn’t sound right.’ Now we’re labeled a hater, a bigot, homophobic.”
Rosalie Astran, a member of Abundant Life Church reacted to San Antonio’s ordinance saying:
“My faith, my belief and how I’ve raised my family—I can get in trouble for that because they don’t agree with that.”
Carleton Soules, San Antonio Councilman who voted no on the ordinance was deeply concerned about how the ordinance was rushed thru the system. He stated:
“We didn’t put the ordinance up on the website. It was fast-tracked through. Anytime we are going at light speed to do something that’s unpopular that throws a lot of red flags.”
“I believe if you’re a small business owner, operating within the city limits of San Antonio, or you’re a business owner that wants to do business with the city, you need to tread carefully.”
These non (or anti) discrimination ordinances echo the hate language measures that the United Nations has been trying to push on everyone. One thing they all have in common is that it is illegal to discriminate against anyone for race, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation and religion, provided you’re not a Christian. It’s perfectly legal and allowable to discriminate against Christians and restrict their rights of religion and free speech. We seem to be the only demographic group that can be slandered, insulted, urinated on, and told what we are and are not allowed to say. In some areas like California, homosexuals can counsel and provide therapy for those confused about their sexual orientation, but Christians are not legally allowed to provide the same counseling and therapy to the same confused individuals.
Today, we find nearly 200 cities with nondiscriminatory ordinances. By the end of the year the number will most likely be well over 200. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a federal law passed sometime before the end of 2014 that discriminates against Christians and provides the special protection for gays. If left unchecked, by the end of 2015 we could well see any public show of Christianity to be outlawed because it offends someone somewhere. No one cares about offending Christians because we’re just lower class citizens anyway.” End of Article.
Jindal: Religious war against Christians in US
By The Associated Press 9:37 p.m. CDT May 10, 2014
“Elitist intellectuals and liberals are waging a religious war against Christians, trying to silence them,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told graduates of Liberty University on Saturday.
“The new left in America is completely intolerant of people of faith,” Jindal said. “The left no longer wants to debate. They simply want to silence us.”
Jindal said abundant evidence includes the experiences of the Benham brothers and Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty.”
HGTV canceled “Flip it Forward” — a real estate show featuring brothers David and Jason Benham — before a scheduled October debut after the lobbying group Right Wing Watch labeled David Benham an “anti-gay extremist” and reported on statements he made against homosexuality and gay marriage.
The A&E network briefly suspended “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson after GQ magazine quoted him as saying that homosexuals are sinners and that African Americans were happy under Jim Crow laws establishing segregation.
“They have the right to speak their minds, no matter how indelicately they choose to do so,” Jindal said Saturday. “The war of religious liberty is the war of free speech.”
Jindal and university president Jerry Falwell Jr. spoke during a ceremony that took nearly two hours.
The university said nearly 17,500 students were graduated from its residential and online programs, with more than 6,000 of them among the 35,000 people at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg.
Jindal said much of American culture has become secular, but religious freedom invented America and faith sustains it.
He urged the graduates to stand up for their Christian education and their beliefs.
“If God is with us, then who can be against us?” he said. End of article.
Not only is there a strong effort from within to destroy our free American way of life that we have enjoyed since our nation ‘under God’ was formed; there is also evidence that the plan to destroy us grows more militantly open. Not only has our great nation been infiltrated by those whose plan is to destroy our nation, our heritage, and our culture; many from within are aiding in that effort by trying with all their might to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.
With their many blatant, ungodly, and inhuman attacks against the leader of our nation, they expose themselves as being hell-bent on destroying the many great wonders our nation represents. This United States of America is our ‘One nation under God.’ It’s the nation and the institution those Democrat and Liberal zealots are maliciously trying to destroy; in coordination with those many Muslims who are charged by Satan to destroy anything related to God.
Donald Trump is likely that one named Abeddon and Apollyon who will be given the key of the bottomless pit to destroy Satan’s great army. Perhaps God touched the hearts of his followers living in Middle America to accomplish that miracle of electing Donald Trump for that prophesied task.
And, there’s another serious consideration that points to the approximate time of 2019 for that attack by Iran. Barack Obama succeeded in allowing our military forces to deteriorate during his administration, perhaps in support of Satan’s goal. Donald Trump and his administration have already begun plans to rebuild and strengthen our military forces to create peace through strength. It’s likely that Iran and its allies against Israel feel they cannot wait to strike Israel. It would be too late if they allowed the United States enough time to rebuild its military arsenal to a level that could easily protect Israel from such an attack.
Those who support Satan’s plan are inviting Satan’s army into our great nation to destroy us. They open the doors wide. They have been led and deceived by the one labelled a deceiver in the Book of Revelation. His name has eighteen letters. It’s Barack Hussein Obama.
How many will hear this message? How many will read this message? How many will really care?
Many beasts are described in Revelation. Some are used simply as metaphors since no other words were available to Apostle John at the time he wrote Revelation. He called four of those apparitions near God’s throne beasts; although it would certainly be most unusual for God to allow some horrible beast with devilish plans to sit near Him anywhere, especially near His throne.
Instead of calling these apparitions or imaginative beings something that would be even more difficult to interpret, he called them beasts. He could have said ‘these things’ but that might have been even more confusing. These were the four things or ideas that introduced the four horses. The four horses were part of the table of contents to introduce more information later in Revelation.
This metaphor of beast describing these four things is similar to the use of the description ‘fire from the sky’ in Chapter 13 describing actions and miracles of the second beast. John didn’t know what aircraft and drones were that he saw in his vision, so he described the bullets, missiles and rockets from those aircraft as ‘fire from the sky.’
The beast introduced in Chapter 13 describes a real beast; and it has three parts, all given power by that dragon, that serpent Satan. The beast is Islam, with Mother Islam, Babylon, as the head of the beast. The first action beast, the real person identity, was Muhammad. He died in 632 AD, so only his spirit exists to lead and inspire his followers today.
The second action beast, the real person identity, seems to be Barack Hussein Obama. He fits the description in Chapter 13 as having two horns of a lamb (claims to be a Christian) but speaks as a dragon (speaks only high praise for Islam and Muhammad; those who worship Satan.) He has also created a condition that will allow Iran to attack Israel sometime in the near future. He created that nuclear agreement, that covenant with Iran. Daniel, Chapter 9, verse 27 describes the length of the covenant as ‘one week’ but certainly that must represent seven years. That verse explains:
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Then, Chapter 12, verse 11 adds:
“And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.” That’s another time entry of three and a half years again; time, times, and half a time.
That agreement with Iran, that covenant, was acknowledged July, 2015. Might this suggest that Iran will suddenly attack Israel without warning in early 2019? Should we accept this prophesy as given and prepare for that time of horrors; as Revelation and Matthew suggest? Should we not be prepared for any horror that might occur? After all, Iran and the other Shia Muslims are destined to call for their Mahdi to purify the world to comply with Satan’s tenets of Islam.
They want their Mahdi to show his head from behind the tree where he hides his face, come forth, and destroy the infidel world. Are you prepared for the horrors that will follow? Listed below are some suggestions for that preparation.
By reading the entirety of Revelation, and parts of Matthew, it seems the worst of the horror will be in the Middle East. Most if not all of those oil-producing nations will be totally devastated. Chapter 18, beginning with verse 21 offers that conclusion:
“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea (of humanity,) saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22) And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee. 23) And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee.”
This would certainly suggest that Islam Babylon will be totally destroyed, never to recover; likely from that uncontrollable oil spill throughout the large territory. But what about the rest of the world; our United States in particular? It seems our greatest disasters will not necessarily be war oriented. But, the great legacy Obama will have left our nation will be our greatest hardship. He has limited and restricted the full development of our own natural resources to maintain ourselves during these great disasters in other parts of the world.
Although we have overly abundant oil and gas under our own feet, Obama did not allowed us to fully develop those resources to become fully independent. This has helped his Islamic friends maintain a higher price for their oil, thereby providing them with more power to attack the entire world; and Israel in the near future. Our horrors will be different.
Our perils will be caused by globalization, world trade, economics, transportation and attacks on our power grid. Our transportation system to transport repair parts, food, and other survival items such as medicines and tonics will be crippled. Things that we need from other parts of the world, because of world trade and globalization, will not be available to us because enough ships will not be on the ocean, and cargo planes will not be in the air. The millions of trucks now clogging our major highways will be greatly reduced if not eliminated totally by damage or terrorism. Our survival will be as that of medieval or frontier days; our nation is no longer prepared for that basic survival.
Christ cautioned many times in Revelation to be prepared; don’t be caught naked, as in Chapter 16, verse 15:
“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
Of course, this is only one of the great cautions to be prepared. The next verse describes the beginning of the Battle of Armageddon which will bring great horrors, especially in and around Israel. But, how must we prepare? We are warned of death by starvation, thirst, the sword, and beasts. Next are some ideas to consider for that preparation. We begin with considerations to protect ourselves from death by the ‘sword.’
Protect Yourself – Own A Weapon
The most expedient preparation is to own a defensive weapon. If you don’t own one now, then this should be your first priority. It doesn’t matter if you agree with gun ownership or not – get a weapon, unless you desire to die ‘by the sword’ as indicated above. You must not be naked and without defense; especially if you have a family. If you won’t protect them in times of hardship; who will? If every qualified person in America owns a weapon, and our enemies know it, then we likely would never have to fire those weapons. A hostile enemy will not attack a target they know will kill them. We must let every Islamic terrorist know they will die if they attack us. Even if they have suicide bombers, they will soon run out of volunteers. But, Islamic killers are not the only great danger that might arise.
There’s a serious consideration, however, before you buy that weapon. That is, to make sure you buy ammunition for it at the same time; otherwise you might own a weapon that’s useless. There’s a shortage of some ammunition now, and it’s likely to get worse in the future. It will be easier and simpler for a despotic leader to disarm people by eliminating the availability of ammunition. Millions of weapons have been handed down from generation to generation, and are therefore unaccountable. The government has no tracer information on these weapons. Most likely, any weapon purchased within the past few years is now recorded at the new NSA center in Bluffdale, Utah. Also, be aware that any new ammunition purchases, especially with a credit card or a check, will also be recorded at that site. Don’t be surprised if sometime in the future certain items may be restricted from cash purchasing. Do it now!
Also, there’s another danger that lurks closer to home. It’s described as ‘Wormwood.’ Wormwood is a great star that fell from heaven when the third angel blew the trumpet, announcing horrible things would happen. This was not a star of course, but something that affected citizens of the earth. The word condition might have been used to describe it instead of a star falling. But the word ‘great’ gave the condition great significance. It’s an unusual event included with the other great events in this chapter, including war and natural disasters. (Revelation 8:11)
In effect, this is a description of the great impact of drugs upon our society; so great in fact that it will become a danger during the time of tribulation. The word ‘wormwood’ describes a family of plants that grow in the wild. The plant is mostly a source of absinthe and opiates, but one variety produces a product that’s considered artificial marijuana. In general, however, it describes the increased use of drugs; so much increase that it becomes a serious danger.
Just imagine what desperate and extreme measures users might do in their attempts to get more drugs. During this time of tribulation, would they invade your home, kill everyone, then plunder your belongings to trade or sell for more drugs? Perhaps you might consider your disdain of owning a weapon. Perhaps you might no longer believe the arguments of those gun-haters. To comply with their ideas might get you and your family killed. Then it’s too late to consider owning one.
Prepare Not to Starve
According to Revelation, and mentioned in three places, hunger will be one of the greatest hardships during the tribulation period. Each person or each family must decide how to prepare for this horrible event. One way, and of course the most obvious way, is to prepare to grow your own food during this period. This is a simple answer for farmers who have acreage and are trained in the techniques of farming.
Most farmers with large gardens also know how to can their produce for the more austere times. However, those who have no acreage or space enough to grow a garden must have other alternatives. It’s uncertain if farmers can produce enough to provide for the massive hunger that will occur. Probably not; and shipping and transportation will be greatly reduced if not totally eliminated to move produce long distances. So, other options must be explored before the need arises. You must be prepared.
One option growing in popularity is to accumulate large stocks of those meals with a long life span, some up to twenty or twenty-five years. Presently, there are two major advertisers of these products, but likely there are more. For some, this is not the best option and for two reasons. First is the cost. They are more expensive than comparable meals. Second is that they require water to prepare the meal. ‘Just add water and heat’ the ads say. But what if you don’t have water or heat?
Another reasonable alternative is to buy canned food; and it’s certainly the least expensive for those on a limited budget. One might ask ‘why not stock frozen food?’ The answer is simple; likely there will be little or no electricity during the worst times of the tribulation. Canned food offers another great advantage. All canned foods include water and liquids in the cans. This could be one source of liquid to prevent severe thirst. Hunger and thirst are two of the four horrors described to happen during the tribulation period. But, one might be concerned about the cost, and loss through ‘best by’ dates on the cans.
To counter the cost of canned food one must remember the main objective during the tribulation period is survival. Therefore, quality food and the ‘food you like’ are not that important. The most important thing to consider is cost per unit (ounce) and ‘best by’ dates. For examples: most food stores and supermarkets have rotating special prices on their canned vegetables. Some cans normally priced above a dollar are put on special prices such as half that to draw customers to the store. That’s the time to buy that product in quantity; as many as the store will allow. And, there’s another option that might even be better; the dollar discount store.
Almost all canned food products at the ‘dollar stores’ are priced at a dollar. However, many of those canned items contain more than twice as much as those priced less at regular supermarkets. It’s not unusual to find three times the volume at the same or lower price. In either case the ‘best by’ date must be considered. Since this year is 2017, the beginning stock of food should begin with dates of 2019 and beyond. Some ‘best by’ dates now reach as far as 2022. How much should you buy and preposition? That depends on the size of your family and those you intend to support during those trying times. It also depends on your space availability for storage. Once stored, however, those dates become important. To manage the dates, keep them stocked separately by year.
Rotation is the answer. Once you have the sufficient stock on hand then future purchases become normal purchases for the current time. And for those items nearing the ‘best by’ dates that haven’t been used there’s another good answer. Simply donate them to local ‘food pantries’ and other charities that offer food to the needy. But, don’t consider it a loss; instead consider it another tool of God’s influence upon humans helping humans. And in some cases it might even be the source of a tax deduction.
Two other alternatives regarding a food source might also be considered. First, don’t forget to have a large supply of fish hooks, fishing line, and other auxiliary fishing equipment. Fish and crustaceans are usually available in most bodies of water. Even crayfish exist is small streams. Second, powerful air rifles are now on the market for shooting small game; and some have silencers, which is an advantage if you are trying to remain safely and quietly in the background.
Have a Water Source
According to the words, during tribulation many will die from: the sword, hunger, thirst, and beasts, so one must also plan for a water source. For the many who live near a water source such as rivers, lakes, and natural springs that will not be a great problem; except possibly for the purity of the water. This problem may be countered by using a water purification system (personal ones are available for about twenty dollars; often called a straw) or by boiling the water. There are also other methods of purification including the use of certain tablets. Regarding ‘boiling water’ perhaps this is the best place to discuss fire and heat.
Okay, I realize I should avoid references in this conclusion, but there’s one that’s too important to ignore. It’s Revelation 7:4 which cautions against hurting the ‘trees.’ Trees are also mentioned in Chapter 9; which might suggest we not destroy too many of our trees during this time of tribulation; when we are likely to be without sources of fire and heat. Can you imagine how many trees would be destroyed as a source of heat for billions of people on the earth trying to stay warm for three to seven years? Trees once were the major source of heat, but the earth had many less inhabitants. Even so, at that time many of our forests were devastated. But today there’s an alternative – solar cookers and ovens.
There are several types of solar ovens, some simple and some more complex. At the present time they are somewhat expensive; the better ones in the three-hundred dollar range. However, considering their utility during difficult times that extra cost might be well worth the expense, especially if you are not in an area where wood is available; dry wood. Once a tree is cut it has to dry before it can be used for fuel. I know, because in my youth my family and many families used wood for the stove and the fireplace. We didn’t have electricity until I was twelve years old.
Those solar cookers will work when there is even medium sunshine, so using them wouldn’t be hassle free, but it’s certainly a reasonable alternative when the sun is shining. Most, at this time, are not mass produced which means if there’s a sudden demand for them they might not be available. And, there are also optional solar tubes for heating water. These are less expensive and can also be used for cooking like a stove, with the addition of an insert tray. But, what about those times when the sun isn’t adequate to make those solar cookers effective? The other alternative, of course, is firewood; which likely will be the primary source for most survivors. This brings a question of how to start that fire without a match.
A large stock of matches or cigarette lighters or other fuel lighters might be the most obvious answer of how to start a fire. And, there are two alternative ways, just in case matches don’t work and fuel is exhausted.
The first alternative is the camp-style striker method. There are several interpretations of the striker, where a rod is scraped against a starter producing sparks to start a fire tender. There’s another alternative, however, that most people never consider. And, when the sun is shining it’s definitely the most effective – the common magnifying glass. Using the sun, a magnifying glass focused to a fine point on paper or other tender will start a fire.
A very strong magnifying glass is always more effective, but a weaker magnifier will work well during the hottest times of day. The best news about the magnifying glass is that water doesn’t hurt it, and the fuel never runs out. I have four strong ones pre-positioned for emergencies. Once prepared for these three threats, there’s still one to consider. It’s introduced as beasts, which most certainly would mean organisms, diseases, and pestilence.
Prepare for Health Disasters
If this tribulation time is as horrendous as written in the Bible, then many people will die from communicable diseases and maladies that are somewhat controllable today. Today, we have medicines and immunizations to prevent and combat things such as flu and pneumonia. Just imagine what would happen if these protections were not available for five to seven years. In large groups, these horrors would spread like wildfire, and only the healthiest and hardiest would survive, especially if complicated without heat to ease the freezing and wet nights. Without proper medications the only defense would be to wear masks and avoid large groups during these periods of epidemics. But, these maladies are not the only threats to survival.
Two other serious threats will be ticks and mosquitoes. These have been serious problems throughout history. In our modern day, and in our modern societies, repellants ordinarily repel these malicious enemies; but will repellants be available during the tribulation period? Likely not. One possibility is to try to anticipate the beginning time and have as much on hand as possible. If you have too much, your friends and family might need help. And, if you spend any time at all outdoors, especially in warmer times, always check every inch of your skin for ticks. They are very small until they gorge themselves with your blood; then it might be too late. If your home is not perfectly sealed, don’t forget to sleep under netting at night.
Another common problem often arises when in survival mode; especially outdoors. That’s the problem of infection from scratches and other wounds. Briars, thorns, and broken sharp sticks abound everywhere in the outdoors, even in the safety of your enclosed yard. If an infection occurs from one of these pricks, scratches, or cuts there likely will not be medical aid nearby to help you. Of course, the logical answer to defend yourself against these ‘beasts’ is to have an adequate stock of antiseptics and antibiotics on hand to last the duration. These beasts will kill people as surely as guns, hunger, and thirst; and often with long-lasting pain. Be Prepared.
My daily research for over five years strongly convinces me that Barack Hussein Obama is that second beast identified in Revelation, Chapter 13, as the False Prophet. That False Prophet claims to be a Christian, but he speaks and praises only Muhammad and Islam. “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast (Muhammad – a national leader,) and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
During Obama’s administration he took no direct military action to implement the policies of that first beast, but his words and actions caused many Islamic principles to grow and be acknowledged in the United States and throughout the world. His actions (inactions) caused that image to the beast, that caliphate in the Middle East, to be built.
And, although he is no longer President of the United States, his charge from Satan will not be lessened. He will take no direct actions against any nation, but his persuasive and deceptive blasphemy will cause others to be the hands of Satan to fulfill Satan’s oath to remove God from heaven. Obama’s deceptions and lying wonders will continue to cause a divided and confused nation; a nation in which within that confusion many will not recognize God’s promise of everlasting salvation.
Barack Obama will not go quietly and remain in the background as a loyal supporter of the United States of America: One nation under God. As Chapter 13 reveals; he will cause things of Satan to happen. Through his efforts, words and deeds, many of his followers will willingly accept that ‘mark of the beast’ to be placed on their foreheads.
Although he is no longer a formal part of our government administration, he will continue to use words and actions outside the government to create strong divisions within our government. To fulfill Satan’s plan he must continue to create division within our nation so as not to allow our nation to come together as a nation united under God.
And so here we are today; the world still under attack by Satan and his evil Islamic beast. It’s a beast so evil it kills everyone in its path; even its relatives and kinsmen. It’s an evil so great not even total power would satisfy itself. There are no limits to the breadth or time of its horror; but its primary and sworn aim is to destroy God in heaven. This explains why God will turn his wrath against this horrible beast that has challenged Him. Islam has spread to the seven heads (those seven continents) and threatens to unleash even more horror against those who worship God.
Within the Words, God has acknowledged that challenging sworn threat from Satan. When the time prophesied arrives he will totally destroy that evil; for at least a thousand years when Satan will escape from the burning pit to spread evil once again. The question of our time, however, is what will happen to our generation when our Apocalypse begins. Will our world still exist as it is? Chapters 21 and 22 answer this question:
Chapter 21, Verse 24 reads, “And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: (referring to the new city of Jerusalem) and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.”
Chapter 22, Verse 2, “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Verse 4 adds, “And they that see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.” Verse 12 warns, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according to his work shall be.”
According to the Words, the physical world will continue to exist even after the great tribulation; there is hope for humanity. In the end, according to the last verses in the Bible, it will be a better world without the presence of that strange god to wreak evil upon the earth.
God bless America, and protect Israel.
Will Clark’s author experiences began by writing inspection and evaluation reports in the U.S. Air Force. He is a retired Air Force officer and a Vietnam veteran, serving in Saigon from 1966 to 1967. His other overseas assignments include Misawa, Japan and Ankara, Turkey; where he visited the ancient sites of the Seven Churches.
In 1995, as a ‘Friends of Education’ study skills project, he authored a book, How to Learn, to encourage students to improve their grades in DeSoto County, Mississippi. Education supporters printed and distributed four thousand copies. The following school year he wrote a weekly education column for a local newspaper, The DeSoto County Tribune. He also taught an adult GED class. His book, How to Learn, has been updated and is now available everywhere.
His next published book was School Bells and Broken Tales, a parody of nursery rhyme characters, also a motivation and education book for children. Other books include Shades of Retribution, a historical novel, and Simply Success, a motivation guide for students and employees.
His action novel, The Atlantis Crystal, is the first of a trilogy based on Atlantis and crystals. The other two books are: She Waits in Atlantis, and Return to Atlantis. This trilogy is based on his travels while assigned to Turkey, site of the ancient city of Troy. His latest political thriller is: America 20XX: The New World Order.
The past five years he has devoted his full time to the study, research, and writing of an analysis of the Book of Revelation and the danger of Satan, that beast that guides Islam.

There’s a strong effort from within our great nation to destroy our free American way of life that we have enjoyed since our nation ‘under God’ was formed. There is also evidence that the plan to destroy us grows more militantly open. Not only has our great nation been infiltrated by those whose plan is to destroy our nation, our heritage, and our culture; many from within are aiding in that effort by trying with all their might to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump. With their many blatant, ungodly, and inhuman attacks against the leader of our nation, they expose themselves as being hell-bent on destroying the many great wonders our nation represents. This United States of America is our ‘One nation under God.’ It’s the nation and the institution those Democrat and Liberal zealots are maliciously trying to destroy; in coordination with those many Muslims who are charged by Satan to destroy anything related to God. Those ungodly in our nation hold the doors wide open to invite in those whose charter from Satan is to destroy us. Donald Trump is likely that one identified in Revelation as Abeddon and Apollyon; the one who will be given the key of the bottomless pit to destroy Satan’s great army. Perhaps God touched the hearts and souls of his followers living in Middle America to accomplish that miracle of electing Donald Trump for that prophesied role. Those who support Satan’s plan are inviting Satan’s army into our great nation to destroy us. They open the doors wide. They have been led and deceived by the one labelled a deceiver in the Book of Revelation. His name has eighteen letters described in Revelation, Chapter 13. His name is Barack Hussein Obama.
