Opening/Closing Gates, Testimony and Prayer

Well, after flubbing on the uploading and waiting for an unreasonable amount of time, the video is ready to go.  Thanks to Josh for helping his old mama out here!  (And no....I am not a Koala bear!)

A Great American Earthquake: False Prophecy Coming To Fruition?

For some, this post is going to be a repeat with a few added items (thanks to BT, for sending in some links.  Also this is a long post and I do suggest you give the videos a listen...get a cup of coffee...)

Let me begin by asking this:  Where in the Bible does it say that America is going to be split in half or that there is going to be a massive earthquake in America? Where in the Bible does it say that GOD is going to pour HIS wrath out on any nation that doesn't honor Israel?  I haven't read anything about that in the Bible and yet FATHER gave me a very brief vision/dream around 2008/2009 about such an event.  Could GOD be warning HIS people of a false prophecy coming to fruition: one that feeds the strong delusion that the physical state of Israel is the apple of GOD's eye? I know from personal experience, that GOD multitasks/micromanages everything.  According to HIS Word, '...all things work together for good to them that love GOD, to them who are the called according to HIS purpose.' Romans 8:28
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 I saw a map of the United States.  A line was drawn from around Dallas Texas (right below Dallas), straight way to New York.  I heard in my spirit, "There is a fault line where there is no fault line."

At first, I thought this dream may have been concerning a personal issue, but over time, the LORD revealed that this is for America.  

Some time later, I came upon a youtube  of a man who had been tracking earthquake activity due to fracking.  The line he drew showing the small earthquakes was exactly like the line I saw in my dream.



Here are some more youtubes on fracking and earthquakes.





(This injection of chemicals into the earth, in order to extract, reminds me of injection abortions! We have the guilt of  millions of aborted Americans blood on the physical land and we have millions of spiritually aborted Americans due to the false church!   While we could be getting energy from the Sun (SON), we insist on creating our own energy. See the parallels?  And doesn't it seem we have enough sins to merit GOD's punishment?)

(Another thing I am seeing is doubles.  Last February and this February, the south was hit with unusual snow storms and freezing weather. Last month Dallas had two medium earthquakes back to back.  And just this month in Tennesse, it's like we are having induced de je vou:  Last week on Wednesday it snowed and they closed everything down for Wed and Thursday.  Exact same thing this week! )

Some of you may find the following interesting.
 Dutchsinse states, "...all the fracking companies didn't map the fault lines they were fracking into.  They were not forced to, didn't have to.  So there are fault lines being injected with liquid which is causing all the movement."  Really?  I wonder why they didn't have to map out fault lines....

Dutchsinse also mentions fracking near nuclear power plants.   Fracking, earthquakes and nuclear power plants...doesn't sound good at all.

The Boon Dam in Tennessee is something to keep in mind.  How did a sink hole form in the first place?  http://earthjustice.org/features/campaigns/fracking-across-the-united-states
Seeing that there are several nuclear power plants along the Tennessee River, if the Boon Dam were to break, according to the following article--reactor meltdown is an absolute certainty!
http://enenews.com/nrc-engineers-charge-regulators-with-coverup-reactor-melt-down-an-absolute-certainty-if-dam-failed

Still no real updates on Boon Dam and I have checked with some 'friends' with TVA and they 'know nothing'.

Could all this fracking, in and around already known fault lines, create a new fault line?  Doesn't seem far fetched to me at all! How about a small induction in the New Madrid: would that get things going?

A massive earthquake, not only creating a new fault line, but doing billions of dollars worth of damage (not to mention the human carnage) would surely cripple the Romerican empire.

If we look at America as James Lloyd stated in the previous post: "Just as ancient Israel continued in the apostasy they learned when they were in Egypt (revolting against Moses, building a golden calf, and so forth), the Holy Roman Empire absorbed the apostasies of heathen Rome'..."

We note that in America we have a dual citizenry of Israeli Jews holding office in our Congress. 
https://michaelruark.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/members-of-the-us-government-with-dual-citizenship-to-the-us-and-israel/

There is also a duality in American Christianity, in that many false preachers and church goers support the physical nation of Israel all the while Benjamin Netanyahu, wishes Christians throughout the world a very Merry Christmas! But doesn't he reject JESUS CHRIST as Messiah and LORD? (Yes, he does.)
Ways of the Serpent—The Theory and Practice of Hell and Illuminism ...

CUFI --  Christians United For Israel, presided over by the very lost, Southern Baptist minister, John Hagee, is a major key player in the Israel First lie.

Perry Stone pre-trib rapture cultist, semi Roman Catholic teachings in his book, The Meal that Heals, along with undying support of Israel, is another Charismatic mega church leader in the 501c3 false church system. He has tours to Israel every year.

There are many more false teachers, but it would take too long to list them at this time!

Along with this Israel First allegiance mindset is some serious verbal black magic.  The fact that many are waking up to all the phony bologna, is perhaps more proof that the powers that be could induce Biblical prophecy, propagating some 'false signs and wonders'.  And you know who is going to 'believe' it most?  Christians!


American Evangelicals' Support For Israel Is Waning, Reports Say

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/09/american-evanglicals-israel_n_5118417.html

So....how does one drum up more support?  Throw in a little voodoo and you get this:
"God created the state of Israel.  God defends the state of Israel. God is saying to every nation on the face of the earth, 'he that touches Israel touches the apple of My eye'."

"God could care less about our relationship with other nations.  But HE is watching what America does as it responds to Israel.  If America turns its back on Israel, God will turn its back on America."

Folks I listened to those sentences five times and he said ITS.  "god will turn ITS back on America."

Proof text/verbiage that America/Israels 'god' is in fact an ENTITY!  (And I bet 20 bucks his name is Mammon.)

More proof?  Go to the CUFI website and read the following.  http://www.cufi.org/

""'HUGE WIN and SHOUT OUT to our CUFI on Campus students at Liberty University for passing the FIRST EVER BDS prevention legislation."""


What is BDS?  "JTA) — A proposed congressional bill links a U.S. trade agreement with the European Union to combating the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel.
The U.S.-Israel Trade and Commercial Enhancement Act introduced Tuesday will “leverage ongoing trade negotiations to discourage prospective U.S. trade partners from engaging in economic discrimination against Israel,” the Times of Israel reported.""
http://www.jta.org/2015/02/10/news-opinion/united-states/proposed-congressional-bill-links-bds-prevention-eu-trade-deal
So we see here another example of Israel First at Liberty University.  They are training up a new generation of false christians to perpetuate the 'be afraid of the physical state of Israel because it belongs to GOD, lie'.   And its all about the money!
Here is a threat made last year in February:
"A group of Israeli rabbis has issued an open letter warning that US Secretary of State John Kerry's reckless peace efforts will if they come to fruition result in divine retribution against those involved.
Kerry's "incessant efforts to expropriate integral parts of our Holy Land and hand them over to Abbas's terrorist gang amount to a declaration of war against the Creator and Ruler of the universe," according to rabbis with SOS Israel and the Committee to Save the Land and People of Israel."
http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/24418/Default.aspx
Usually SOS stands for save our ship or save our souls, but I wonder if in their case, SOS stands for Seal of Solomon?
(See Acts chapter 7.  Stephen was killed for telling the truth about the supposed 'star of David'.)

I don't listen to Alex Jones ever, but the title was catchy. 
http://www.infowars.com/the-new-madrid-earthquake-that-will-divide-the-united-states-in-half/
(Some think Jones is a shill.)
Not sure if it will divide the US in half....but does seem logical that all the fracking, especially running up along the New Madrid, could induce a serious blow!
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/Maps/US10/32.42.-95 ...

Speaking of shills, I've noticed a few folks that I might call out as a shill because of their Hebrew Roots and undying support of Israel.  And that is doomsday prepper types on Youtube!  
Ann Barnhardt--Roman Catholic diehard, who doesn't say much about her support of Israel, but I heard her confess so, with my own ears after listening to some of her history lessons.  She really tries to stir up the ol' Patriot in folks with her angry, put out tone, and constant demeaning of American men.
The Patriot Nurse who came out as being of the Jewish faith also stirs up patriotism.  The Seven Trumpet Preppers (Hebrew Roots with their main message of a catastrophic earthquake coming.  In one of his videos, he went from prepping in the US to getting passports to leave!)  The following link has a comment that brings up a good point: Is the Patriot/Prepper movement Jewish lead?

Let's face it: tv sells, doomsday scaring sells and look at all the money that's rolling around with all the purchasing of equipment and supplies.  And who's in charge of the media?  
~~~~~~~~~~~~
If anyone has forgotten, lets review what happened in Christchurch New Zealand, as geologists found a fault line, 'where there was no fault line' previously!  There were actually two mega quakes in New Zealand.
The 2010 Canterbury earthquake (also known as the Christchurch earthquake or Darfield earthquake) struck theSouth Island of New Zealand with a moment magnitude of 7.1 [1][2] at 4:35 a.m. local time on 4 September, and had a maximum perceived intensity of X (Intense) on the Mercalli Intensity Scale.[1] Some damaging aftershocks followed the main event, the strongest of which was a magnitude 6.3 shock that occurred on 22 February 2011.[7] Because this aftershock was centred very close to Christchurch, it was much more destructive and resulted in the deaths of 185 people,[8] and was felt from Invercargill to Wellington.[9]

"The February 2011 Christchurch earthquake was a powerful natural event that severely damaged New Zealand's second-largest city, killing 185 people in one of the nation's deadliest peacetime disasters.
The magnitude 6.3 (ML) earthquake[1] struck the Canterbury Region in New Zealand's South Island at 12:51 pm on Tuesday, 22 February 2011 local time (23:51 21 February UTC).[1][9] The earthquake was centred 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) west of the port town of Lyttelton, and 10 kilometres (6 mi) south-east of the centre of Christchurch, New Zealand's second-most populous city.[1] It followed nearly six months after the magnitude 7.1 Canterbury earthquake of 4 September 2010, which caused significant damage to Christchurch and the central Canterbury region, but no direct fatalities."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Christchurch_earthquake

"Today's fatal earthquake near Christchurch in New Zealand confirms that a country already riddled with major fault lines has gained another one, say seismologists.
"Christchurch has never been identified as a major earthquake zone, because no one knew this fault ran beneath," says Roger Musson, a seismologist at the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh."
http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2011/02/the-unknown-fault-that-caught.html

What's interesting is the following article!

"Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has been carried out in New Zealand for over 23 years[1] but concerns have been raised by environmentalists about its negative effects. Some local government jurisdictions have called for a moratorium on fracking but this has been rejected by the government.[2] The environmental effects of fracking are potentially regulated by the Resource Management Act (RMA) through the requirement for resource consents.
In 2011, the Taranaki Regional Council published a report that found there had been 43 hydraulic fracturing activities in 28 wells with no evidence of any related environmental problems. The report also found that the risk of contaminating freshwater aquifers was very low. Since August 2011, the Taranaki Regional Council has required resource consents for all subsurface fracturing discharges.[3]""
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulic_fracturing_in_New_Zealand

Joseph Herrin wrote a post on how the Christchurch NZ earthquake was a parable of today's church.   Only my take is that the false church is about to get a shaking and hopefully any real believers in it will come out of it!

Earthquake in New Zealand Christchurch earthquake Christchurch Cathedral - Tower Destroyed and Building Damaged
St. John’s Anglican Church Bell Tower Destroyed christchurch-new-zealand-earthquake.jpg
Churches destroyed in Christchurch NZ

Take a look at the following video of an event that happened in John Hagee's 'church'.  Just as the folks in the following video are divided on Israel, look at how FEW, there are who speak the truth!  And the majority of false christians, would tear people apart for telling the truth.  So be it!  As they did to the LORD, so shall it be to us!



While some are crying out the evils of Israel, 
strangely enough Jonathan Cahn, a proclaimed Christian, says that many main events in history including 911, were in relation to this 'mystery Shmita'.  And he's making headlines and big bucks doing it!

'Jonathan Cahn is a messianic Jewish Rabbi and pastor best known for his best selling novel "The Harbinger" in which he compares the United States and the September 11 attacks, to ancient Israel and the destruction of Kingdom of Israel. In particular he sees the Isaiah 9:10 as a prophetic warning to America. The Harbinger was followed with The Harbinger Companion: With Study Guide.[1]""
wikipedia.org

We have to remember evil people like to create a crisis in order to be the fix of the crisis.  Rahm Emanuel stated, 'You never want a serious crisis go to waste.  It's an opportunity to do things, you could not do before.'

I think there is a crisis in the institutional church: a lot of people are waking up and calling BS on a lot of what has been going on.  The other thing, is that with all forms of entertainment, things get boring, so the institutional church has to turn it up a notch to keep people engaged.  

The latest prophecy de jour is the Shmita, even though the whole idea is totally debatable according to this article.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shmita 

What is concerning me is that according to the article, Shmita means 'release' or rest.  Isn't the whole idea about Sabbath rest, whether seventh day, or seventh year; letting people rest or the land rest?

But according to Cahn, Shmita can also mean, 'the fall or the collapse or shaking.'




False Flag:   A covert operation designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by others (nations, groups, entities) other than those who actually planned and executed them.

What did some of the false preachers say about 911? "GOD has removed HIS hand of protection from this nation!!"  While that is partially true, its not like HE performed it.    HE allowed it because we are gullible and greedy and we love not the truth! 

So are we being set up again?

Cahn states in the video: 'The Shmita wipes out accounts...as the shmita gets to its peak, 911 happens...when its getting ready for the day of nullifying....the collapse of the tower and Wall Street happen...how did they determine exactly?...by the ancient mystery of the shmita...'

(Who is the THEY and why is Shmita referred to an IT?)

Cahn also states, 'the mystery is getting more precise and intense.'

(The mystery?)

According to Cahn, something BIG could be taking place in the year of the Shmita which would be this year- 2015 and ends on  September 13th.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So in conclusion, are we seeing and/or about to see a false prophecy come to fruition? And what happens when the rapture doesn't whisk people away, but instead American's suffer tribulation? (not The Great Tribulation)

  Contrary to what Jonathan Cahn thinks-that a great revival will take place after this shaking, I think a great 'turning away' from the faith will occur and a stronger belief that there is something very mysterious and powerful about physical Israel and 'perhaps now, folks better listen to those who warned about its preeminence'!  (Welcome the Noahide laws and a new one world order!)

2 Thessalonians 2
 7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 


8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 

9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 

11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ROMERICAN EMPIRE – Part XVII James Lloyd

Dear Readers,
I received this in the mail yesterday and was reviewing it this morning.  For those of you who are not familiar with James Lloyds work or website, you may find the following difficult to assimilate or digest.

Some of his work can be challenging as he incorporates a lot of history.  None the less, I challenge you to work through it as I found much of it encouraging and for those who may have been following the 'discussions' on the Sabbath, Lloyd addresses that here too.

I am also thinking that this writing may be a good 'pre-post' to the 'coming earthquake' information that I have yet to really mull over.

Peace,
Deirdre

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The position of America, the powerful world empire of our time which is functioning in parallel to the ancient Roman Empire, is referred to as Romerica in this series. In the last few portions of this work, we’ve examined how two destinies were manifested in the transition from the Old to the New Testament.    The destiny of Christ-less Israel terminates in Jerusalem with the rule of the Herods, who complete the Old Covenant prophecies of the Little Horn – even as the destiny of Spiritual Israel, the body of former Jews and Gentiles who became born-again believers in Christ, continued through the Roman Empire.
The 6, 7, 8 Cycle is the supernaturally engineered formula wherein the 6th entity (or kingdom) represents man’s best effort, which then collides with the Spiritual dimension, allegorized as the 7th kingdom, or the Kingdom of God.    
This is associated with the concept of eternal rest which is found in Jesus Christ, who the Scriptures tell us is our Sabbath:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
As most Biblically literate people know, the 8th day is actually the first day of the new week, and it is closely associated with new beginnings – and this symbolism is demonstrated by the fact there were 8 people in the ark, Christ rises from the dead on the first day of the new week (the 8th day), and so forth. The 8 in the 6, 7, 8 Cycle is the combination of the 6 and the 7, where our finite existence (the natural man made on the 6th day) collides with the Spirit of the LORD (Christ, our Sabbath), and the 8 is the result:
“Even he is the eighth, and is of the seven” (Revelation 17:11).

As previously stated, there are two destinies which overlap. As the end of the Hebrew covenant approached, we see that Israel repeatedly broke the covenant that God provided:
“…the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that 
I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband to them, saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 31:32).
Thus, the Old Covenant made by God with Israel runs through the end of the 6, 7, 8 Cycle. It was destined to be terminated by Israel, and may be quantified with the very same formula revealed in the forthcoming Christian age. This is seen in the kingdoms of man which interact with Israel, and these kingdoms are all seen in the Old Testament. They
 are Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and the Syrian dominion of the Seleucids – a total of 6 Empires.
As we showed in a prior installment, the revolt against the
 Syrian despots by the Maccabbean Jews was the last gasp of the Old Covenant, as the inhabitants of Jerusalem sought to rekindle the faith of their fathers. This was the 7th stage of Israel in the 6, 7, 8 Cycle, but it was rapidly extinguished as the 8th phase of the Herods began.
If we examine the metaphors, we’ll see an even deeper truth. Israel was to be the vessel containing the life of the world, and the oracles of God would show the way to eternal
 life in the LORD:
“For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption…But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me” (Psalm 16:10; 49:15).
The Word of God declares the way to eternal life is to be found through the light of God, which shone through Israel to the rest of the nations:
“Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein; I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles” (Isaiah 42:5, 6).
The 6, 7, 8 Cycle may also be understood by thinking in terms of polarities. The 6 represents the flesh, and the the Spirit – which the New Testament tells us are opposites.
“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other” (Galatians 5:17).
When the two collide, as seen in 6 versus 7, the 8 in the cycle is the synthesis of the two. A form of this computation is seen in the worldly system known as the Dialectic, where two opposing views converse until they reach a consensus
This ungodly process is in universal use, and it has been distilled to Thesis Versus Antithesis Equals Synthesis. This formula is also aptly seen in Christ’s statement concerning Hot, Cold, and Lukewarm:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:15, 16).

The “cold” is the 6, the “hot” is the 7, and the “lukewarm” is the 8.
The Syrian Seleucid Empire, as the 6 in the 6, 7, 8 Cycle could be reduced to an allegorical Cold. This is because the Old Covenant plainly stated the Israelites were chosen by the LORD to lead the world – providing the light of God to the nations.  This means the Syrian Gentiles were not chosen. As the fleshly 6 fought for dominion with the Spiritual 7 (the Maccabbeess in the Old Covenant timeline), the Jews ultimately came to the compromise position of Herod, the Idumaean, who was part Jewish, and part Gentile. This is the Lukewarm in Christ’s judgment, and the language employed clearly 
indicates the LORD thoroughly rejects such a compromise.
As the Herodian “man of sin” came to pre-eminence, the LORD determined to give Israel one more chance, so He dispatched His Son to create a New Covenant with Israel.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah. But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people” (Jeremiah 31:31, 33).

As Jesus, the 7 in the 6, 7, 8 Cycle had long determined to include the Gentiles in His salvation, the timing of His arrival had to intersect with the end of the Jewish era, and it also had to have a Gentile dimension to it. However, God had long declared Israel was to be the beacon of His salvation, so two different streams of prophecy converged – with the post-Grecian timeline of the Seleucids morphing into the Herodians for the Jews, and the rise of the Gentile Roman Empire for the rest of the nations:
“…it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory…And I will set a sign among them [read the sign of the cross], and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations….that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles” (Isaiah 66:18, 19).

Thus, Herod had to be in power to fulfill the prophecies of the Little Horn in Daniel 8, and Rome had to be in power to satisfy the conditions of Daniel 2 – with the latter the famous passage about the Golden Head (Babylon), Silver
 Arms (Persian Union), Brass Belly (Greece), and Iron Legs
 (Rome). This prophecy tells us that when these four kings have arrived, the LORD will intervene in human history, and set up His kingdom:
“And in the days of these kings, shall the God of heaven set
 up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed” (Daniel 2:44).

The Roman Empire, which may be easily computed to be Kingdom number 6 following the pattern in Daniel’s second chapter, worshipped Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars at the time that Jesus arrived, so this Kingdom clearly collided with the Kingdom of God in Christ – Kingdom number 7. As the 6, 7, 8 Cycle impacting the emerging Christian era commenced, we see the synthesis of Saturn worshiping Rome (6), and the Kingdom of God in Jesus Christ (7), culminated as the Holy Roman Empire, the corrupted 8 in the equation.
As we covered in earlier segments of the present work, this 8th Kingdom re-initialized the sequence and, as the 8th day is the first day of the new week, the 8th Kingdom was actually the first Kingdom of the Christian era. Just as ancient Israel continued in the apostasy they learned when they were in Egypt (revolting against Moses, building a golden calf, and so forth), the Holy Roman Empire absorbed the apostasies of heathen Rome, including the importation of the Saturnalia festival – a ritual involving the cutting down of an evergreen tree during the winter solstice, as a sacrifice to appease the star deities worshiped in pre-Christian Rome:
“Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest…they deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not” (Jeremiah 10:2, 3).

The Babylonians had a similar rite, associated with the women weeping for Tammuz, wherein they cut down a tree from the groves (I Kings 18:19), killing the tree to to commemorate the death of the sun god in Babylon – again coinciding with the winter solstice, and the 3 shortest days of the year concluding on December 25th.
 Over the centuries, the tree was adorned with lights, and a star, representing Ishtar/Isis/Astarte the star goddess, which was placed on the top. The lights on the tree (associated with the stars as “the signs of heaven” as described in Jeremiah) were part of another occultic practice which was also used in the adjacent Jewish celebration known as Hanukkah, where the Jews used an 8 pronged menorah (instead of the usual 7) to commemorate a “miracle” associated with their parallel version of the 6, 7, 8 Cycle.
Thus, the Christian era began, with the Holy Roman Empire,  followed by the violent, colonial power of Spain – complete with the hideous Spanish Inquisition, in which the “Church” tortured and maimed anyone who questioned the nest of vipers who came to control the thoroughly corrupted religious system known as Roman Catholicism (I John 2:19).

When the shift away from the Catholic brand of apostacy coincided with the emergence of the Protestants in the era of the quartet of Britain, Russia, Germany, and America (kingdoms 3, 4, 5, and 6 seen as the Lion, Bear, Leopard, and Diverse Fourth Beast in Daniel 7), we saw the same flicker of hope which occurred when the Judaeans continued under the quartet of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome (kingdoms 3, 4, 5, and 6 seen as the Golden Head, Silver Arms, Brass Belly, and Iron Legs seen in Daniel 2). As previously noted, Kingdoms 1 and 2 in the Old Testament era (Egypt and Assyria), Prophetically Paralleled Kingdoms 1 and 2 in the New Testament era (the Holy Roman Empire, and Imperial Spain).
To restate the foundational truth of the Prophetic Parallels, the Christian era was marked by parallel apostasies, which were not dissimilar to those which plagued Israel and Judaea in the Old Testament period. Thus, the famous prophetic utterance from Ecclesiastes has already been fulfilled a thousand times over:
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after” (Ecclesiastes, 1:9-11).

As the LORD has revealed what has already occurred as a predictive lamp unto our feet, we are blessed to recognize the last act of the astonishing story – that which is occurring even now in our midst – and this includes the great Falling Away which is now upon us, the rise of Antichrist in the age of America, and the events which will culminate in the end of the world.
