    A sign from above? Lightning strikes Vatican hours after Pope's shock resignation

    The lightning touched the roof of St. Peter's Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, hours after Benedict XVI's shock announcement.



    A sign from God? Lightning strikes the basilica of St.Peter's dome earlier this evening during a storm that struck Rome on the same day Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation

    Petrus Romanus: 900 Year Old Prophecy Says Next Pope Will Oversee End of Days


    In 1139 A.D. the Catholic Saint Malachy was said to have experienced visions during a trip to Rome. He subsequently put these visions to paper and penned a document containing 112 short phrases purporting to describe all future popes that would head the Catholic Church. Though not a part of official Catholic dogma or church teachings, this Prophecy of the Popes is well known by Vatican officials and church scholars because it has been remarkably accurate about naming the last 111 heads of one of the world’s oldest and most widespread religions.

    According to researchers, theologians and evangelical scholars, the phrases Malachy scribed in his writings offer up the “nature, name, destiny or coat of arms” of every pope in succession and culminate with the naming of the 112th pope.

    This morning, Pope Benedict XVI announced he would be retiring. Jokingly referred to as “God’s Rottweiler” in some circles, the German born 111th Pontiff as described in Malachy’s prophecy is called the Gloria Olivae, or ”glory of the olive,” which some supporters of the prophecy suggest is a reference to the Benedictine Order of monks from whom Benedict got his namesake. The monks are also known as the Olivetans, and are represented by an olive branch, leaving many to believe that Saint Malachy was, once again, right.

    Now, according to prophecy, the 112th Pope will step up to head the Church, and he will be named Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman.

    This morning, Pope Benedict XVI announced he would be retiring. Jokingly referred to as “God’s Rottweiler” in some circles, the German born 111th Pontiff as described in Malachy’s prophecy is called the Gloria Olivae, or ”glory of the olive,” which some supporters of the prophecy suggest is a reference to the Benedictine Order of monks from whom Benedict got his namesake. The monks are also known as the Olivetans, and are represented by an olive branch, leaving many to believe that Saint Malachy was, once again, right.

    Now, according to prophecy, the 112th Pope will step up to head the Church, and he will be named Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman.

    Whether you’re Catholic, Christian or not a religious person at all, the fact that a 900 year old prophecy is coming to a close is intriguing. And one way or the other, whether its predictions turn out to be true or not, the prophecy concludes with the next Pope.

    Eerily, the prophecy describes the Catholic Church’s last Pontiff as overseeing a new era, and one that will be met with great difficulty and destruction:
    “In extreme persecution the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman…”
    “Who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible or fearsome judge will judge his people.
    The End.”

    Prophecy of the Popes – Attributed to St. Malachy circa 1139 A.D.
    Within the Book of Revelation, also known as The Apocalypse of John, are references to the destruction of the City of Seven Hills (Rome) and to the many trials that will be faced by mankind ahead of the final judgement – the rapture, the rise of the anti-christ, seven years of tribulations, and the end of days.


    Suffice it to say, if the prophecy is accurate, then the world will soon be engulfed in a battle between good and evil.
    The idea by some Catholics that the next pope on St. Malachy’s list heralds the beginning of “great apostasy” followed by “great tribulation” sets the stage for the imminent unfolding of apocalyptic events, something many non-Catholics agree with. This will give rise to the false prophet, who according to the book of Revelation leads the world’s religious communities into embracing a political leader known as Antichrist.



    Throughout history, many Catholic priests—some deceased now—have been surprisingly outspoken on what they have seen as this inevitable danger rising from within the ranks of Catholicism as a result of secret satanic “Illuminati-Masonic” influences. These priests claim secret knowledge of an multinational power elite and occult hierarchy operating behind supranatural and global political machinations. Among this secret society are sinister false Catholic infiltrators who understand that, as the Roman Catholic Church represents one-sixth of the world’s population and over half of all Christians, it is indispensable for controlling future global elements in matters of church and state and the fulfillment of a diabolical plan called “Alta Vendita,” which assumes control of the papacy and helps the False Prophet deceive the world’s faithful (including Catholics) into worshipping Antichrist.


    As stated by Dr. Michael Lake on the front cover of this unprecedented report, Catholic and evangelical scholars have dreaded this moment for centuries. Unfortunately – as you will discover in the next 90 days – time for avoiding Peter the Roman just ran out.


    The prophecy begins in 1143 with the election of Pope Celestine II, who is described in Latin as “Ex caſtro Tiberis,” or “From a castle of the Tiber.” Celestine II was born in central Italy in a city that sits on the banks of the Tiber river. Pope John Paul II is referred to as “De labore folis,” or “from the labour of the sun,” and is the only pope to have been born on the day of an eclipse and entombed on one as well.


    There are scores of similar parallels between prophecy and pope, adding all the more credence to its legitimacy.
    In its last prediction, though the prophecy refers to Petrus Romanus as the shepherd that will pasture his sheep, it may not necessarily mean the Pope will be on the side of the people, or even God. According to Thomas Horn, the author of Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here, the last pope is not the anti-christ, but he may well be the false prophet who ushers him in - a chilling thought for the billions of Catholics and Christians around the world:
    The important fact is this. The very next Pope, following Pope Benedict the XVI who, according to a lot of news coming out of Rome right now – his days are numbered. He’s getting older, he’s getting feeble, he may retire…

    The next Pope is the final one on a 900 year old prophecy.
    So, imagine how historical this moment is with regard to end times bible prophecy.
    By the way, the prophecy tells us that he will be the false prophet of biblical fame who will help give rise to the anti-christ.

    A Look at the St. Malachy Prophecy:



    Whether coincidence, self fulfilling through the machinations of man, or otherworldly, Malachy’s writings have certainly held the attention of the highest levels at the Vatican for centuries, and perhaps even influenced its decisions.
    Now, with Benedict the XVI stepping down, we enter its final phase, and we’ll soon learn how accurate it really is.

    Why does the devil in 'The Bible' look exactly like President Obama?

    By James Nye
    PUBLISHED: 02:08 EST, 18 March 2013 | UPDATED: 05:50 EST, 18 March 2013



    Sunday evening's episode of the History Channel's hit series 'The Bible' threw up an awkward coincidence when viewers noticed that Satan bore a remarkable resemblance to President Obama.

    Twitter exploded into life during the airing of the latest edition of the Mark Burnett-produced series with most noting the striking similarities between the 44th President and the devil played by actor Mehdi Ouzaani.

    The show has been a surprise hit in the ratings, with the religious mini-series attracting 13.1 million viewers on Wednesday - topping television leviathan American Idol's 12.8 million viewers on Wednesday.

    Scroll down for video


    Spooky: Viewers noted the Devil from the History Channel series 'The Bible' Satan looks similar to President Barack Obama

    Right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck first pointed out the eerie similarity on Saturday, tweeting, 'Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?'

    Others were simply struck by the clear physical match.

    More...




    Twitter user @Leah Christie, tweeted, 'Oh my word...watching The History Channel's The Bible..does Satan look familiar to anyone else?'



    The resemblance between Moroccan actor Mehdi Ouazzani (left) and President Obama left some viewers of 'The Bible' taking to Twitter to express their amazement





    Right-wing radio host and commentator Glenn Beck was one of the first to point out the uncanny likeness of Mehdi Ouazzani to the 44th President of the United States


    The popular religious show has become a surprise hit of the winter/spring schedule and viewers on Sunday night took to Twitter to express their shock at the similarities of the two men

    While Matthew Gaudet commented, 'Watching The Bible series on the History channel and noticed the guy playing the role of Satan, looks strikingly similar to Obama.'

    The unfortunate incident bares comparison with HBO's infamous inclusion of a fake George W. Bush head impaled onto a stick during the background of a Season 1 Game of Thrones episode.

    When the incident went viral, the network announced it was pulling the offending episode - from its rotation, freezing shipments of DVD box sets and halting sales on iTunes until the embarrassing blunder had been fixed.

    'We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste,' HBO said in a statement.


    Spiked: Former U.S. President George W. Bush's surprise appearance on HBO's fantasy series Game of Thrones, bares comparison to President Obama's look-a-like on Sunday's 'The Bible'

    Game of Thrones creators D.B Weiss and David Benioff faced massive criticism for using a prop of George W. Bush's head in a scene from Season One of the hit show

    'We made this clear to the executive producers of the series, who apologized immediately for this careless mistake.

    'We condemn it in the strongest possible terms and have halted all future shipments of the DVDs, removed it from our digital platforms and will edit the scene for all future airings on any distribution domestic or international.'

    HBO and the show's creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, apologized for the incident.

    Mr Benioff and Mr Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series' DVD commentary, insist it wasn't a political statement - just a prop.

    It remains to be seen whether this particular presidential mishap will create a similar backlash against the wildly popular mini-series.

    The Mark Burnett-produced program retells the stories from the scriptures in a scripted format, from Genesis through to Revelation, the last book of the New Testament.

    The miniseries' popularity is somewhat of a mystery. For one, the drama wasn't a hit with television critics, receiving a mediocre score of 44 on the Metacritic site.


    'Blessed': Producer Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey behind the scenes on The Bible where they believe 'the hand of God' was at work during filming

    'As a cable series, The Bible lacked the ready-made, large scale promotional platform and popular lead-in that can drive strong ratings for a new show on a major broadcast network, of the kind NBC was, for many years,' writes a columnist in The Washington Times.

    Indeed, Burnett told Entertainment Weekly that the series' success seemed almost preordained while it was being made.

    'The hand of God was on this,' he said in an interview before the show's premiere. 'The edit came together perfectly, the actors came together perfectly, it just comes to life.'

    Mr Burnett, who is most famous for creating reality shows such as Survivor and produced The Bible along with his actress wife Roma Downey, described a number of 'weird things' which drew the attention of cast and crew during filming.





    Tales: British-born producer Mark Burnett, left, who created the series along with his wife Ms Downey, right, revealed the extraordinary experiences of the crew during filming

    In one scene, filmed during a still night on the edge of the desert, Jesus tells the priest Nicodemus, 'The Holy Spirit is like the wind.'

    According to Mr Burnett: 'At that moment, a wind, like as if a 747 was taking off, blew his hair, almost blew the set over and sustained for 20 seconds across the desert.

    'Everyone just looked at everyone like, 'What just happened?'

    The Bible is airing on the History Channel in two-hour chunks on Sunday nights, and has been the surprise winner in its timeslot.

    The series will air its finale on March 31, Easter Sunday.




    The devil of the History Channel series on the Bible nailed Obama

    The similarity in the U.S. causes controversy and intense debate in social networks

    The miniseries 'The Bible', the History Channel, has sparked some controversy in the U.S. and numerous comments on social media not by its content but because the character of the devil bears a strong resemblance to the current occupant of the White House, Barack Obama.

    Not that Mohamed Mehdi Ouazzani, the actor who plays the devil in the series, it looks too American president, but the result is a characterization of Satan nailed the president.

    The debate on the subject in social networks, collected by the website Buzzfeed, revolves around whether the similarity is the result of chance or of the evil intentions of the team in the series.

    The series will see this Easter in Spain by Antena 3 TV.


    Obama Administration Fulfills Joel 3…Joel 3 pt 1

    Posted on March 19, 2013 by billrandles

    I thought I would re-release a November 2010 article on Joel 3 I did, called “They Parted My Land”. In view of the recent release of an Obama administration video which portrayed the modern state of Israel in a truncated and diminished state, giving the Golan Heigths to Syria and Judea and Samaria to the Palestinian authority, as reported in the Washington Free Beacon,

    BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
    March 18, 2013 5:29 pm

    Quote:
    The map of the Middle East displayed in an Obama administration video released days before President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel shows the Jewish state dispossessed of substantial parts of its current territory, including its capital.

    The map of Israel, displayed repeatedly during the video, shows the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, northern Israel, and areas surrounding what is currently the West Bank as non-Israeli territory. The Golan Heights is shown as part of Syria; Jerusalem is shown as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon.

    The itinerary on the White House website also implies that Jerusalem is neither Israel’s capital nor even part of Israel.

    The president’s schedule lists two stops in “Tel Aviv, Israel” and one in “Amman, Jordan” but his activities in Israel’s capital city are identified as taking place only in “Jerusalem” — with no country name attached. This keeps with a reluctantly-acknowledged administration policy of denying that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital or even a part of Israel. “Obama’s Middle East Map Erases Israel Territory”


    For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. (Joel 3:1-3)

    I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.(Joel 3:2-3)

    Joel the prophet predicted that in the last days God would bring all nations into judgment, listing the complete four count indictment against the nations. We discussed in our last article the first of the four, the charge that the nations scattered His people among the nations.
    Only as of the late 1940′s with the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the rise of the first universal conference of all nations,the UN, have the conditions been right for the fulfillment of this ancient prophecy.

    The second indictment against the nations of the world is that they have participated in the partition of God’s land.This will bring judgment to the World.
    * Israel isn’t the property of the UN, the Vatican, the European Union nor the Arabs. neither is it the property of Israel, for it belongs to God himself.
    ‘The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me. (Leviticus 25:23)

    Therefore for the nations of the world to deliberate at the UN, or in Rome or Washington or Cairo as to the disposal of the Holy Land and it’s borders, as if it were their’s to dispose of is arrogant presumption.

    Not even the Jews have the right to trade land for peace, although the leadership of Israel being for the most part secular in their outlook,would desperately love to do so if it would bring peace.

    * British were given the mandate over the Holy Land after defeating the Ottoman Turks in Jerusalem in the First World War.The Turks had taken the losing side in the War, thus to the winners went the Middle Eastern spoils.

    Interestingly the Turks fled Jerusalem after learning of the name of the British General who besieged it, which was “Allenby”. The reason they fled was because they heard the name Allenby- as “Alla Nabi” which means “Allah’s prophet” in Arabic.(God does indeed have sense of humor!).

    The British had promised a Jewish chemist, Chaim Weissman, a homeland for the Jews in the traditional borders, after the war, in exchange for the invention of a synthetic gunpowder .

    These traditional borders included much on the eastern side of the Jordan river, in the area now known as the kingdom of Jordan.

    The problem arose because the British had also promised the same area east of the Jordan river (The Trans-Jordan)to the royal Hashemite family of Arabs, who had been displaced out of Arabia by the clan of Ibn Saud, with the help of the British.

    The British parted the land to appease the Arabs, and the sun has been setting on the British Empire ever since! Israel was given only a sliver of the land that they were promised.

    Currently this prophecy is being fulfilled by the insistence of the UN that Israel return to its pre 1967 borders(rendering it indefensible), as well as the pressure everted to cede the Gaza, and the so-called “West Bank” territory, which is biblically named “Judea and Samaria”.

    The United States under the Obama administration, has been insisting upon a “No Natural growth” policy for Judea, which means that the number of Jewish settlers there is to be “capped”, allowing for no further growth in population. This would effectively strangle the existing population, forcing the remaining Jews to leave.

    While Arab leaders, International statesmen, “human Rights”champions of every stripe, the Pope, the presidents of the free world, UN delegates, and a host of other parliamentarians the world over heatedly debate the “status” of Jerusalem and the “legitimate” borders of Israel,The Holy God of the Bible observes.

    It would be well to remember the Words of the prophet Ezekiel in his prophecy to the “west Bank”, that is the mountains of Judea,

    Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:

    Barak Hussein Soebarkah the Sun Rises in the West

    Did anyone think Barak Hussein Obama Soetoro Soebarkah would fade away and never be heard from again? Not a chance. I know I warned of this long ago and there are others here who could see the future path for this creature. In the world will be seen a great political fight. There is a spiritual fight happening... a great war in the heavens. We should not discount this.

    The first video here goes into some older information and adds a couple new things that spotlight threads or web strands for the kind of events we can expect. On Sep 7th 2018, Obama gave a campaign speech which presented more evidence of his nature. Those with discernment will see exactly what this devil is doing.

    Do I think Obama Soebarkah is the anti-christ man of sin? Well, he sure has many qualifications. If you carefully read his speech and watch it delivered, you will see one who can cleverly deceive with words. He strikes me as being a rather unintelligent buffoon, but how smart can one be if he thinks he is greater than the Creator?

    This video is The Jonathan Kleck summing up many pieces.

    [39min Antichrist Right on TIME!! Obama says,, "We don't need a MESSIAH"]
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R3_H72o5EM


    As a reference to what is new in this discussion, here is a link to the video and transcript of Obama's speech..... in which he says:

    The antidote to a government controlled by a powerful fear, a government that divides, is a government by the organized, energized, inclusive many. That's what this moment's about. That has to be the answer. You cannot sit back and wait for a saviour. You can't opt out because you don't feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate. This is not a rock concert, this is not Coachella. You don't need a messiah. All we need are decent, honest, hardworking people who are accountable – and who have America's best interests at heart.

    Why does the Devil look like Obama? Art imitates life.

    A Telling Dream

    The following is a dream I had three times over Memorial Day weekend. It is as it will appear in the next issue of the Hand of Help newsletter. It was a sobering dream in many ways.

    Dear Brethren,

    Over Memorial Day weekend I was scheduled to speak in Lake Havasu Arizona. Since Las Vegas was the closest major airport and by far the cheapest ticket, Gene and I flew there having planned to spend the first night upon our arrival somewhere in the area, then make the drive to the meeting the next day.

    After a four hour flight, some misunderstandings with the car rental agent, and a couple hours to get acclimated to the heat, we checked into our room without further incident.

    That night I had a dream.



    I dreamt I was standing beside a path leading into a forest, and although snow blanketed the ground, the path was still visible, clear, and well defined. Although I wasn’t cold in my dream, I could seem my breath and as I looked around trying to understand what I was seeing and why I was seeing it a beautiful buck made its way up the path toward me.

    Although I can’t say I’ve seen many bucks up close this seemed like a fine specimen, regal in its bearing, almost prancing up the path with its head held high.

    I stood beside the path unmoving, not wanting to spook the animal in any way. If it saw me it did not let it show as it passed by and continued trotting down the path.

    I continued to watch it follow the path toward the forest until suddenly it veered off and began to make its way through the packed snow. Although its pace slowed and it was having a difficult time making headway once it veered off the path, the buck seemed stubborn in its insistence, and though progress was slow, it continued its march.

    I started to look around for something else, not really understanding what I was seeing or why I was seeing it when a sharp crack drew my attention back to the buck. Although the animal was a good distance from me, I could see what had happened with great clarity.

    The buck had stepped into a hole which had been masked by the snow, and had snapped its front left leg.

    I didn’t know what else to do, so I just stood and watched as it forced itself up, and though evidently in great pain, it began to continue on its journey away from the path.

    Its progress was slow, and I could hear the echoes of its bleating, but wounded as it was the animal was insistent in its purpose.

    After some time the buck stopped suddenly and began to sniff at the air. An instant later the mournful sound of howling wolves reached my ears, and I understood what the buck had smelled.

    With renewed vigor the buck tried to run, but hampered by its wound, its progress was slow.

    I was so focused on the buck that at first I did not acknowledge the movement in my peripheral vision, but as they drew closer I shifted my focus and I could see the source of the howls approaching swiftly. At first it was one wolf, then two, then five, then an entire pack, all in a semi-circle chasing down the wounded buck as it tried to flee.

    I was anxious to see what would happen, I strained to see every detail, but as the wolf pack drew closer and closer to the buck, I woke up.
    Troubled by the dream I’d had, I prayed a prayer and tried to go back to sleep but no sleep would come.

    The next morning we made our way to Lake Havasu, and after having our evening meeting, and a late night dinner, I went to sleep only to dream the exact same dream again. Everything was the same, from the path and the snow, to the buck and its broken leg, to the howls and the wolves, and to waking up fully alert just as the wolves were closing in on the buck.

    Once again I prayed and tried to go back to sleep, and once again sleep would not come.

    The next morning we had church, then drove a couple hours to a place called Aguila Arizona where we had some wonderful fellowship, then drove back to Las Vegas where we would catch our flight home the next morning.

    It was already past midnight when we got in, and having preached twice and driven for about seven hours that day, I was as exhausted as a man can get.

    I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow, and once again the same dream began to play out. Just as the wolves were ready to attack and take down the buck I was awoken by a loud noise coming from the pullout sofa in the room. It was Gene. He was snoring.

    I was halfway to throwing a pillow at Gene and telling him to roll over, when I saw the man standing at the foot of the bed, arms crossed over his chest, and a half smile on his face.

    ‘Ask your question,’ he said.

    ‘Why can’t I see what happens? Why can’t I see the end of the dream?’ I asked.

    ‘Because it is inconsequential,’ he answered.

    ‘The instant the animal wandered off the path and wounded itself, its end was a certain and foregone conclusion. It matters not which wolf fells it.

    Once it is felled, they will all feast. The same can be said of this nation with one exception.

    The animal had no one to help it, this nation rejected the help offered it believing it could heal its own self of the wounds it had inflicted upon itself.

    The wolves have gathered. They sense the weakness, they smell the blood, and they are confident in the outcome of their endeavor.’

    In an instant the man was gone, and I found myself standing halfway out of bed with a pillow in my hand pondering what I had just heard.

    We reject repentance at our own peril. We reject righteousness, sanctification and the pursuit of holiness to our own detriment. Though there is safety on the narrow path we’ve taken it upon ourselves to blaze our own trail, indifferent to the untold perils and dangers awaiting those who stray.

    I wish with all my heart I could write happy things in my letter to you today, I wish I could tell you the sun will come out tomorrow and the storm clouds will pass, but our refusal to accept God’s help, our refusal to submit and humble ourselves before Him only hastens judgment.

    The wolves have gathered, the hunt begins, and this weakened nation is the prey.

    I will now repeat what I preached on during one of the aforementioned meetings because I believe it is relevant, timely, and apropos. The level of your relationship with Christ today, will determine whether you stand or fall by the wayside tomorrow. Know that you are resting in Him, know that you draw your strength from Him, and know that you have placed your hope and trust in Him.

    On Christ the solid rock we stand, for truly, all other ground is sinking sand.

    Psalm 124:6-8, “Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”

    With love in Christ,

    It is virtually impossible for a man to undergo the process of repentance if he has no idea of his inherent need. Only the sick are in need of a doctor. All others live as if there is no problem. The reward, or level of judgment, if you will, will be absolutely appropriate in every case.

    Fox anchor asks viewers to consider if bombing Syria is a harbinger of the Second Coming of Christ

    By David Edwards
    Tuesday, September 10, 2013 9:36 EDT


    Topics: Joel Rosenbergneil cavutosyria

    Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday devoted an entire segment to the possibility that a United States attack on Syria could be a sign of the End Times, a period in which Christians believe that Jesus Christ will return to face the emergence of the Antichrist.

    “This Syria stuff is way old,” Cavuto explained. “I mean Old Testament old. That’s how old I’m talking about. Don’t laugh. Some biblical scholars say it’s all there in black and white.”

    The Fox News host invited author Joel Rosenberg to weigh in on the link between the Syrian conflict and the Bible passages, which he said were “uncanny” and “kind of scary.”

    “These are prophecies more than 2,700 years old, some of them, but they have not actually been fulfilled,” Rosenberg said. “But this prophecy, as you just pointed out, talks about the complete and utter destruction of Damascus. That’s an End Times or eschatological prophecy.”

    “It’s a very sobering thought to think that a judgment of a city or a country could happen in which an entire city could be wiped out, but that is, in fact, what the Bible is predicting,” he added. “I think it’s wrong for people who teach Bible prophecies to guess — I mean, in a sense try to say for certain it’s going to happen now.”

    “But you have 7 million Syrians that are already on the run, 2 million have left the country, 5 million are internally displaced. That Jeremiah 49 prophecy says that people will flee, but there will still be people in Damascus when the prophecy happens. So, the bottom line is that we don’t know if these two prophecies — Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 — will happen in our lifetime or soon, but they could because they haven’t happened yet.”

    “Amazing,” the Fox News host observed. “It’s in in there. It’s worth a read.”

    Cavuto and Rosenberg did not speculate if one of the current world leaders could be the Antichrist at the time of Christ’s Second Coming.

    Watch this video from Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, broadcast Sept. 8, 2013.

    It refers to the ancient Babylonian empire... and the ingenious way
    God's Anointed King from the East, Cyrus, conquered Babylon...
    by drying up the Euphrates River, so his troops could secretly invade
    the city by going under Babylon's wall via the dried up river bed.

    Thus... Cyrus symbolically released the prophecy of Jeremiah 50 & 51
    which had been previously bound to a rock and thrown into the Euphrates
    at Babylon [Jeremiah 51:60-64.]

    Also see Revelation 9:14.

    Is45, are you approaching prophecy, Revelation, Biblical eschatology from some form of preterist perspective?

    No, not at all.

    However...

    The Bible... and especially the book of Revelation... contains historical symbols, archetypes
    that refer back to Old Testament history for imagery used in future prophetic events.

    For example... in the book of Revelation, the end-time evil empire is called Mystery, Babylon...
    it is the third incarnation of Babylon... the first being the Tower of Babel... the second being
    the ancient Babylonian empire. Babylon is an important symbol... archetype... and archenemy
    of the ancient Israelites. The fact that the symbol of Babylon was used in Revelation gives
    unspoken [symbolic] insight into the nature and character of the end-time evil empire.


    Knowing Bible and secular history related to the ancient Babylonian empire and God's Anointed King
    from the East, Cyrus, who conquered Babylon... and understanding how symbols used in Revelation
    relate to that historical event... will give one interesting insight into Biblical prophecy yet to be fulfilled.

    Just so I understand where you're coming from, in your estimation, Cyrus' conquering of Babylon is a Biblical type for the future prophetic event defined in Revelation 16:12?

    Mystery, Babylon is the third and last incarnation of Babylon...
    it is the last end-time evil empire.

    Interestingly... there were also three incarnations of Rome...
    both west and east... Holy Roman Empire and Third Rome...
    both destroyed and replaced by the third incarnation of Babylon.

    According to Bible scholars, Rome was the one who "restained"
    the coming of global antichrist rule. The third incarnation of the
    eastern Roman empire, Third Rome - Tsarist Russia, fell in 1917.
    The third incarnation of the western Roman empire, Holy Roman
    Empire - Third Reich, fell in 1945.

    When the Babylonian end-time evil empire falls... God's Kingdom
    on earth will arise.

    Yes... and not only Rev 16:12...
    but also other imagery used in Revelation is a symbol of Cyrus.

    For example... white horses were sacred to the ancient Aryan Persians.
    The ancient Persians used white horses in their grand processions to carry
    the chariot of their king and the chariot of their one invisible god. They also
    took white horses into battle.

    Cyrus took sacred white horses with him in his war campaign against Babylon.
    According to ancient Greek historians... it was an incident with one of Cyrus'
    white horses that gave him the brilliant idea to dig canals so the water of the
    Euphrates River could be diverted... so Cyrus' troops could secretly enter Babylon
    by going under Babylon's wall along the dried up river bed.

    The ancient Israelites were very familiar with this history... they had been in bondage
    to Babylon for 70 years... and Cyrus was their God Anointed Liberator [see Isaiah 45.]
    Cyrus decreed a portion of Israel return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple [Ezra 1.]
    Israelites lived under Aryan Persian benevolent rule for 200 years.

    .
    I agree, as an Orthodox christian, that Czarist Russia's fall in 1917 released what the 'Restrainer' (a certain person, from the language used, I interpret as the Martyr Czar Nicholas, Czar Nicholas pray for us!) was holding back, the forces of Antichrist. The Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 confirmed this prophesy, and the Bolshevik Revolution can thus also be identified as the 'Beast whose mortal wound by the sword was healed'. When full-blown open Communism is revived-and it will be-it will be a political earthquake that will rock the world to it's foundations.
