Yeah but... Could THIS really be the Last Days? Part Two or Two

"The Earth Belongs to HaShem and the Fullness Thereof."

When Will These Things Be? (part two of two)
By John of AllFaith © October 31, 2007

Here in part two of this study (Click Here for part one) I'll offer evidence that this generation is the first in history that not only could have been the one foretold by the Hebrew prophets, including Y'shua, Paul and John, but that it has to be!

Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

In both Matthew (24) and Luke (21) Prophet Y'shua gives details into the future of our world. Most people, including me, usually stress the importance of Matthew 24 but here in Luke he gives us one the most important signs for when the Kingdom will be established. Note the time line here.

"And they [the Jews] shall fall by the edge of the sword..." He explains that Jerusalem and its Holy Temple will fall (Matt 24:1) and the Jews will be butchered. This happened in 70 CE when Titus and his forces laid waste to Zion.

Next, "... and [the Jews] shall be led away captive into all nations,,," With the destruction of the City and Temple the Jews fled Zion and the Great Diaspora began. Since 70 CE Jews have lived as perpetual refugees in most nations of the earth.

And here is the important point for our present consideration: "... and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles..." This is precisely what happened. The Holy City came under the control of various Gentile powers. For how long?

"..., until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled."

The Kingdom therefore will not be established until Zion, especially the city of Jerusalem proper, is in ruled by a Jewish government.

This single verse, and there are many others, makes it crystal clear that until Israel was reborn in 1948 and, moreover, not until the Holy City was taken in 1967, there was no way the Moshiach would come.

Israel's critics at times include Jews who maintain that only the Messiah can restore Israel to the Jews. Master Y'shua debunks this notion. In his time table he shows that first the Jews will return to Jerusalem, thus ending the Tims of the Gentiles, and THEN...

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

As the Jews return to and reclaim Holy Zion the nations will enter into a time of chaos and political upheaval. These nations are likened to a great sea and this sea is roaring!

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

A time of terrorism and fear will rock the earth and HaShem, the God of Israel, will once again directly enter into the affairs of the world. As this time advanced:

It is during this time that HaShem will fulfil His promise to father Abraham:

Genesis 12
1 Now HaShem had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Those nations that Bless Israel will be blessed, those who curse Israel will be cursed.
The United States/New World Order is currently working to divide Jerusalem, to drive the Jews out of large segments of the Holy City and to give those areas to their Arab enemies. God will curse those who curse Israel and its Holy City. Will He spare this fallen and corrupt nation? For more on this see my blog entries Here and Here)

So... Prophet Y'shua clearly says the Jews will return to Israel, then...

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

The general assumption made by Christians is that this Son of man refers to Jesus, in the Greek it does not specify who this man is . I discuss this elsewhere in some depth (Click Here) but with this study we're looking and timing.

Paul adds more insight:

II Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

In other words, although there were people at the time who believed the Kingdom would soon be established, Paul is very clear that it is not "at hand."

The coming of Moshiach had been the hope of Jews for over two thousand years, it was understandable that the Jews and Noahides who accepted the teachings of Master Y'shua hoped the Kingdom was at hand. Paul wrote this letter about eighteen years after Master Y'shua's death. As mentioned above, the primary role of the Moshiach is the establishment of the Theocratic Kingdom.

This view is expressed by the great Jewish theologian Maimonides as follows:
"If a king will arise from the House of David, diligent in Torah study and the fulfillment of Mitzvot - of the written and Oral Law – like David his ancestor, and will compel all the Jews to go in its [the Torah's] path . . and builds the Holy Temple and gathers the Diaspora [to the land of Israel], this is certainly the Messiah." (Laws of Kings 11:4).

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Prophet Daniel refers to this son of perdition as well. We'll discuss that later. For now, note that before the Kingdom is established, ie "that day," another man must come.

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

As this study is considering timing rather than the specifics, note that this man will sit in the Temple of God.

Paul was fully aware of Prophet Y'shua's teachings and he had predicted the destruction of the Temple and the dispersion of the Jews throughout the world:

Matthew 24
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the [age]?

Yet here in II Thessalonians he tells us that the coming Son of Perdition will sit in the Temple. It is therefore clear that Paul is referring to third Temple which Maimonides tells us the Messiah will establish. More on this below. For now we note that since the third Temple has yet to be built the Antichrist or Man of Perdition could not have come.

We now have a few essential prophecies that must be fulfilled by the generation of the End Times:

The Jews must return to Zion
Many nations must oppose the re-establishment of the nation of Israel
The third Temple must be built

These things were not possible before 1948/1967 and so any claim by previous generations were in error of the prophecies.

We continue with II Thessalonians 2
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

I plan to write on this hinderer soon. I have much to say on this topic. For now however, note that there is a struggle going on between the forces of Antichrist and the forces of... those who oppose him. These opposing elements have had limited success but the Antichrist will come to power.

8 And 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: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders... 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

Paul therefore lists several important events that must be in place. He prays that his hearers will be strengthened by their faith in the teachings of Master Y'shua, and by the mercies and blessings of HaShem.

Now let us return to the matter of the times of the Gentiles...

Master Y'shua said the Jewish Diaspora would continue until the Times of the Gentiles are ended (Luke 21:24).

I don't want to go too deeply into this here since I have written about it elsewhere (Click Here), but according to Paul the Gentile followers of Master Y'shua were "grafted onto" to the Tree of Israel for a set duration (Rom 11). This duration is the Times of the Gentiles.

What does this mean that the Gentile followers of the Jewish Master Y'shua were "grafted onto the House of Israel?

Paul is very clear on this at Romans 11. He explains that the Noahide Nazarenes (the Gentile followers of Master Y'shua) have been shown favor by HaShem for His own purposes, however, "Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.... (Rom 11:1,2). And again, "For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance" (Rom 11:29). HaShem chose the Jews and that calling has and never will be withdrawn. Again, I discuss this elsewhere.

The relevance of this point is that according to Paul, as well as the Prophet John (who prophetically described the future of the Christian Faith in terms of seven churches), at the time when the Antichrist rises to power the Christian church will have fallen from its position of domination and moral authority into abject greed and hypocrisy. Therefore during the hundreds of years when the Church ruled nations, during those days the word "Christian" was generally considered a synonymous for right and good, the time would not have arrived. With the rise of Israel as a nation the Times of the Gentiles began drawing to a close and the Christian religion began falling into abject hypocrisy and greed:

Rev. 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Today Christianity as a religion is no longer viewed favorably by the world. It is rocked with scandals and people at large consider it hypocritial if not anemic. This is not to say there are not many sincere Christians nor that the tree is completely rotten, however as Master Y'shua made clear:

Matt 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

When we look at the fruit produced by those countries and organizations claiming to be Christian we find considerably less good fruit than previously. Indeed Islam will soon pass Christianity as the largest religion on earth. It is already by far the most devoutly observed.

Again, with this study we are looking at timing. Until the Church was in this fallen state the Messiah would not come.

Now let's consider politics.

Prophet Daniel, writing in the sixth century BCE, foretold that the future would see four global powers. At the time he was writing the Jews were living in Babylon where they had been taken following the defeat of the Northern and Southern Hebrew kingdoms. Daniel spoke in some detail of the world powers:

Babylon: Dan. 2:38-38 (see also Dan 7:4 and 8:20)
Medo-Persia and Greece: Dan. 2:39 (see also Dan 7:7 and 9:26)
Rome: Daniel 2:40--43 (see also 7:7 and 9:26)

That these are references to governments is confirmed here:

Daniel 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

Then verse 44 tells us, "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever."

If the Roman Empire is the fourth of these world powers, which is clear when one studies these out, then the Theocratic Kingdom will be the next global power.

We naturally ask the question, what of the United States that now seems to rule the world?

As the Cold War ended it appeared that the United States had become the only true global power, however almost immediately China established itself as a major power that rivaled the US. Likewise, even though the USSR fell, Russia remained an important player and is now returning to the political stage. Likewise the Islamic Ummah is a world power and is becoming more so every day. Therefore, since the fall of Rome there has not been a true world power.

In Daniel seven, where these four powers are discussed as well, we read the following:

7 After this [after seeing Greece] I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Dan. 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

When one studies this out we find that the Roman Empire never actually fell, rather it disintegrated into the ten basic nation states in Europe, today known as the European Union. From among these nations the Antichrist will rise to power.

Prophet Y'shua refers to this ruler when he says,

John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

This "other" is the Antichrist
, "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (II Thess 2:4).


The formation of the EU was needed so that the Little Horn would have a base from which to rise.

We also see from this and other verses that this leader will be Jewish.

Those who have made this statement before have often been labeled Antisemitic. Those who read my thoughts regularly know my support for Israel and all things Jewish.

Why must the Antichrist be Jewish?
According to Master Y'shua, according to Prophet Daniel (27:9), according to Paul (II Thess 2:4), according to Prophet John (Rev 13) and many other sources the Jewish people, like the Christians and most very one else, is going to accept this man as the moshiach. There is no way Jews would ever accept a Gentile as their moshiach. To think they would is to insult the Jewish people.

Among the things this Beast of a man will do is:

Rev. 13:16 And he [the Antichrist] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

While there remains some debate over the Mark of the Beast a few things are obvious. In order to do this a government would have to be able to identify everyone on earth. There would have been a system in place where it would be impossible for those with the mark to buy or sell. It would have to be some sort of ID that could be placed on or under the skin.

Prior to modern times most of the world grew their own food on local farms. Those who refused to accept the mark could simply grow their own food. But not anymore! With the advent of suicide seeds it is now becoming impossible to store seed for the next years harvest. This means that poor people who can not buy new seeds each year will have no way to grow food (For more Click Here or simply Google "suicide seeds")

I am absolutely convinced that the technology now exists for the first time in human history to establish a globally mandated implant using GPS and RFID technologies that will be able to effectively create a world in which no one can buy or sell except those who have received the implant. Someone writing 2000 years ago would have described this technologies in exactly these terms.

In the United States many animals are already given implants to identify them. But its not only animals:

Friday, May 10, 2002

BOCA RATON, Fla. — A Florida family on Friday became the first to be implanted with computer chips that researchers hope will someday become an easy way to provide emergency room staffers with patients' medical information. For more on this see my story: The Pre-Mark of the Beast is given to human beings for the first time!

At the beginning of this piece I made two two statements:
1. That this is the first generation in history in which the Messiah could come
2. That generation has to be it.

I believe I've made the first point although much more can be said.
As for the second point:

Matt 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

The Tree of Israel put forth its first leaves in 1948 when it was restored as a nation. In 1967 The Holy City was liberated and it could truly be said the Jews had returned to Zion. It can be debated which of these two dates applies to this prophesy, however it is clear that within the generation of 1967, if not 1948, according to Prophet Y'shua, 'all these things will be fulfilled.'

Other relevant prophecies Moshiach will fulfill (Source for more reading):
  • The Sanhedrin will be re-established (Isaiah 1:26): Done
  • Once Moshiach is King, leaders of other nations will look to him for guidance. (Isaiah 2:4)
  • The whole world will worship the One God of Israel (Isaiah 2:17)
  • He will be descended from King David (Isaiah 11:1) via Solomon (1 Chron. 22:8-10)
  • The Moshiach will be a man of this world, an observant Jew with "fear of God" (Isaiah 11:2)
  • Evil and tyranny will not be able to stand before his leadership (Isaiah 11:4)
  • Knowledge of God will fill the world (Isaiah 11:9)
  • He will include and attract people from all cultures and nations (Isaiah 11:10)
  • All Israelites will be returned to their homeland (Isaiah 11:12)
  • Death will be swallowed up forever (Isaiah 25:8)
  • There will be no more hunger or illness, and death will cease (Isaiah 25:8)
  • All of the dead will rise again (Isaiah 26:19)
  • The Jewish people will experience eternal joy and gladness (Isaiah 51:11)
  • He will be a messenger of peace (Isaiah 52:7)
  • Nations will end up recognizing the wrongs they did to Israel (Isaiah 52:13-53:5)
  • The peoples of the world will turn to the Jews for spiritual guidance (Zechariah 8:23)
  • The ruined cities of Israel will be restored (Ezekiel 16:55)
  • Weapons of war will be destroyed (Ezekiel 39:9)
  • The Temple will be rebuilt (Ezekiel 40) resuming many of the suspended mitzvot
  • He will then perfect the entire world to serve God together (Zephaniah 3:9)
  • Jews will know the Torah without study (Jeremiah 31:33, see also New Covenant)
  • He will give you all the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4)
  • He will take the barren land and make it abundant and fruitful (Isaiah 51:3, Amos 9:13-15, Ezekiel 36:29-30, Isaiah 11:6-9)
And from my reading of the Scriptures this has to be the generation that will witness these things.

This of course has only been a summary look at the prophecies, however I think they are sufficient to make the point. As always, I invite your comments of questions.

Yeah but... Could THIS really be the Last Days?

"The Earth Belongs to HaShem and the Fullness Thereof."

When Will These Things Be? (part one)
By John of AllFaith © October 30, 2007

Have you heard this common, "Yeah but" reply?

"Yeah but," they say, "people in every generation have believed they were in the Last Days... so why should we believe this is it?

Makes sense! Right? Some people in many or even most generations have believed they had reached the Last Days. But let's look into this a bit deeper...

The real purport of this argument is the suggestion that the Bible is not clear enough to give specific, dependable information, that the prophets were so vague that their words could mean almost anything! A LOT of people believe this.

But is this true? Or is it that over the centuries people were so desperate to escape life's woes that they failed to base their End Time beliefs on what the biblical prophets actually said?

I was recently re-reading one of my favorite mysteries, The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. In the book there are often references made to the coming of Antichrist. Several of the players in that book expected the Antichrist to appear at any moment. As I read one such passage a few days ago it occurred to me that their dialogue explains a lot! Here's the section:

This speaks volumes to our present question!

Yes it is true that some people have "always" expected the Antichrist to appear within their generation, but their assumptions were not harmonious with the biblical prophets.

There's a line I love from Fiddler on the Roof. The town folk have just learned the Russians are kicking them out:

Motel: Rabbi, we've been waiting all our lives for the Messiah. Wouldn't now be a good time for Him to come?
Rabbi: We'll have to wait for him someplace else. Meanwhile, let's start packing.

When times are hard Jews and Christians naturally look heavenward and wonder if the time has finally come for Messiah's arrival. However for Messiah to come certain events must first take place. Until these events happen, the Messiah will not come. Jews and Christians are not in complete agreement about these prophecies (indeed Christians debate these things among themselves!) But there are many similarities. I will be presenting my own understandings here, they differ in part with both Jews and Christians.

In the piece cited above there are many points that are not harmonious with the biblical prophets. For instance, the biblical prophets nowhere speak of two Antichrists, one "mystic" and one "proper," but of one. There is "the spirit of antichrist" that is always present in the world, but a single person will be the Antichrist (more on this below). The biblical role of what the Antichrist will do makes it abundantly clear that he could not have been a Catholic Gentile as the piece suggests. Those who have realized this would have their hopes unfulfilled because they were not based on the Prophets.

Likewise there is no reference to a "sixth age" in the biblical prophecies. There is no reference in the Bible to the Antichrist effecting the de-thronement of a pope nor that the seven heads and ten horns represent seven sins and so on. These things were not spoken by the Prophets and so basing one's expectation of them, when they don't come to pass, says nothing about the actual prophecies. The biblical prophecies will fulfilled as written and this has never yet been possible... until today.

Rather the Bible specifically says what these symbols mean. Reinterpreting what is plainly written will only lead to error and disappointment. As for interpreting the number 666 based on someone's name... well the same can be said of the name Ronald Wilson Reagan and others! There are occasional surface similarities but that is not enough to fulfill prophecy. The prophecy says the Antichrist will be a man. Hey, the guy at the hardware store down the road is man!... We can see where this sort of flawed logic goes.

In order to credibly argue that people in the past believing they were living in the last days calls the credibility of the biblical prophets into question, to make this argument with credibility, one would need to demonstrate that the previous claims were reasonable based on what the prophets actually wrote.

There are many very specific prophecies that must all be fulfilled. Most of the key ones have never been.

Again, it was understandable that people living at the time (1327 CE in the case of the book) would hope to see the Deliverer, but biblically speaking there simply was no way they would and many people who knew the biblical prophecies knew it. This point is made clear by young Adso who exclaims, in response to the inaccurate understandings being discussed, 'But... his successor was Pope John!' The reason this is so powerful an observation is that IF Boniface were the Antichrist then Pope John would have be the messiah!

So yes, historically there were many people who believed the Messiah was coming in their generation, but without exception they believed this in opposition to clear prophetic statements. The fact that for hundreds of years the Christian Church made it illegal for people to read the Bible didn't help of course! And yet throughout the centuries there were always people who knew better, biblically knowledgeable people knew the prophecies and, knowing them, knew they would not witness the coming of Moshiach nor the establishment of his Theocratic Kingdom. If this was true, then they also knew they would not see the rise of the Antichrist who will proceed him.

This situation began even before Master Y'shua died! Life in Roman occupied Israel was very difficult and all the Jews understood the singular promise of the Moshiach's coming: Establishing the Kingdom! If Master Y'shua was the moshiach he would establish the Kingdom... but he didn't seem interested in doing this! First century Jews were not waiting for a Liberator of souls but a Liberator of Jerusalem and all of Eretz Israel! The Moshiach will be the King of the Jews according to the Prophets! This was the meaning of the mocking sign placed over Y'shua's head: "King of the Jews"! That sign said, in effect, 'Your hope be damned! Here's your dead Messiah and Rome still rules! Here's your dead hope!'

Prior to his death prophet Y'shua sat with his followers at the Temple teaching them. At Matthew 24 the disciples gathered and asked him when the Kingdom would be established. They hoped Master Y'shua was the Moshiach, but if he was, why hadn't he yet established the Davidic Kingdom. "When will you do this?" they asked.

In response Master Y'shua dropped a bomb shell! He explained that the Holy City and the Temple would be destroyed! This must have shaken their faith! Messiah is supposed to build the Temple up, not speak of its destruction! He goes on to describe the dispersion of the Jews and their later return to Israel at some point after this horrific destruction. As for when this would happen, he said that even he didn't know (Matt 24:36)! He describes the establishment of an independent Jewish nation, as foretold by Prophet Isaiah and others) and so on, but it is clear that he himself would not live to see it. It is largely for this reason that Jews do not accept that Y'shua was the moshich. Establishing the Kingdom is the central and primary task of the coming King of the Jews.

But the desire for the Kingdom didn't end there! Later on, the Apostles John and Paul added to Master Y'shua's prophetic insights and laid out a very detailed prophetic presentation of how and when the Kingdom would be established. Despite this, some people still hoped for the Messiah and the establishment of the Kingdom in their lifetime, even before the Temple was destroyed! They ignored the plain teachings of Master Y'shua even then! And yet Paul, like the rabbi in Fiddler on the roof says, 'We'll have to wait for him someplace else. Meanwhile, let's start packing.'

II Thessalonian 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition...

Paul understands the prophecies. He knows that those who were yearning for the kingdom in his day would not see it. He gave very specific information telling them this, information that we'll look at a bit later.

The story played out in The Name of the Rose has occurred countless times through the past two thousand years. People of Jewish and Christian faith hope for the Messiah, sometimes they have imagined things they believe will hasten his coming, and yet, in the absence of certain clearly defined events that would not happen.


Motel: Rabbi, we've been waiting all our lives for the Messiah. Wouldn't now be a good time for Him to come?
Rabbi: We'll have to wait for him someplace else. Meanwhile, let's start packing.

Since the year 70 CE when Jerusalem fell and the Jews entered into Diaspora (as prophet Y'shua foretold) there has never been a single generation that met the required conditions...

Until this one.

In part two of this study I'll offer evidence that this generation is the first in history that not only could have been the one foretold by the Hebrew prophets, including Y'shua, Paul and John, but that it has to be!

Matt 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

No one knows the day nor the hour, this is true, but we absolutely know the "watch," and you and I are living in it!

(With so much going on in the world right now it may take a few days for me to post part two of this study. If you are interested in reading the rest leave a comment. That will encourage me to complete it sooner. I hope to finish this before I leave on November 6th, God willing and the bombs don't drop.)

And then there was Jimmy Kill the Jews Carter!

If You Still Believe the US Has Two Parties
Look at This!

"Republican" Candi Rice has now turned to "Democrat" Jew Hater Jimmy Carter and North American Union proponent Bill "Burn the Waco babies alive" Clinton to help her determine how to best sell her Luciferian plan to destroy Jerusalem and Israel!

Unreal! The RepubliCrats aren't even hiding anymore!

There is ONLY one political party in the US and it is NOT the traditional Democratic OR Republican party! The United States is NOW a plutocratic neo-fascist dictatorship owned and operated by the Novus Ordo Mundi (New World Order) in preparation for the Novus Ordo Seclorum (New globalist Secular Age). These plutocrats are determined to destroy not only Israel but the US as well! And they are about to succeed while we Americans do nothing!

One good thing has come out of this. Many of my Jewish friends in the past criticized me for not supporting Bush. Now they, like the rest of the world, can clearly see the demonic nature of the New World Order.

Will You Accept the US National ID Card Coming in May?

Precursor to the Mark of the Beast

At what point is enough enough?

Remember the old saw, "Would you sleep with me for $5.00?"
"Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?"
"Well... yeah..."
"How about for $20.00?"
"What kind of person do you think I am!"
"Expensive but willing!"

What's your price? How much will you take before you finally say no? Or will you say no?

This coming May (2008) millions of Americans may decide to take our stand.

The prophecies speak of the Mark of the Beast, without which no one can buy or sell anything. This new national ID card will NOT be the Mark of the Beast, but it will be yet another precursor to the Microchip or RFID implant that will, when perfected, be the mark described in Rev 13:16-18:

Rev. 13:16 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 foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 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.

So, at what point will you stand up and say no!? Or will you be among the vast majority who willingly accept the Mark of the Beast? I know many of my Christian friends expect to be Raptured away before the Mark is released, but I beg to differ. There will be no Rapture in this context (Click Here). If things go according to the NWO plans, you will need to make that choice within the next seven months. As with my previous post about the up-coming Thought Crimes legislation (Click Here), this is very real. Will you stand?

The ID card will probably be combined with the driver's license. Those who refuse the card will not be able to legally drive. All the things that require proper ID will no longer be available to those without this national ID card. The card will almost certainly be linked with the airlines, so no card and you're grounded! This is one reason I am going back east in two weeks to visit family and friends, soon I may not be able to travel. Those who have the card may well receive discounts on various items, even as grocery cards and some petrol stations now use member cards. Will you recieve the Card to save money? To fly? To drive? To avoid being hassled by the police and feds?


Will you accept the card? Will you accept the 'improved' cards that are sure to follow it? Will you pledge your allegiance to the government to get the card? Will you accept the implant when its available? Will you pledge your loyalty to the world government to receive it? Will swear alliegience to coming Rex Mundi? The one called Little Horn, Antichrist or Dijal? I wont! Most will.

But... what point is too far?

Frankly I am not sure what I'll do about the card yet, but I'm inclined to reject it. I do know that I will refuse the implant to the death... I want to see exactly what the card is and what it entails before deciding, but in all likelihood the introduction of the National ID Card, whether in May of next year or a bit later, will probably be the date I become a non-person.

But before the the implant...

National ID Card Rules Unveiled

Homeland Security officials released long-delayed guidelines that turn state-issued identification cards into de facto internal passports Thursday, estimating the changes will cost states and individuals $23 billion over 10 years.

The move prompted a new round of protest from civil libertarians and security experts, who called on Congress to repeal the 2005 law known as the Real ID Act that mandates the changes.

Critics, such as American Civil Liberties Union attorney Tim Sparapani, charge that the bill increases government access to data on Americans and amplifies the risk of identity theft, without providing significant security benefits.

"Real ID creates the largest single database about U.S. people that has ever been created," Sparapani said. "This is the people who brought you long lines at the DMV marrying the people at DHS who brought us Katrina. It's a marriage we need to break up."

Homeland Security officials point to the 9/11 hijackers' ability to get driver's licenses in Virginia using false information as justification for the sweeping changes.

"Raising the security standards on driver's licenses establishes another layer of protection to prevent terrorists from obtaining and using fake documents to plan or carry out an attack," Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said in a press release...

[Contrast this with the current controversy about New York and other states issuing driver's licences to illegal immigrants!]

The 162 pages of proposed rules (.pdf) require:

  • Applicants must present a valid passport, certified birth certificate, green card or other valid visa documents to get a license and states must check all other states' databases to ensure the person doesn't have a license from another state.
  • States must use a card stock that glows under ultraviolet light, and check digits, hologramlike images and secret markers.
  • Identity documents must expire before eight years and must include legal name, date of birth, gender, digital photo, home address and a signature. [Its just a coincidence I'm sure, but the Antichrist will reign for seven years!], States can propose ways to let judges, police officers and victims of domestic violence keep their addresses off the cards. There are no religious exemptions for veils or scarves for photos. [this is important because when Christians and other refuse to accept it on religious grounds that option will be refused from the outset. This suggests that these NWO Plutocrats understand what they are doing... they are developing the technology of the Beast!].
  • States must keep copies of all documents, such as birth certificates, Social Security cards and utility bills, for seven to 10 years.

However, many difficult questions, such as how state databases will be linked or how homeless people can get identity documents, were left unanswered by the proposed rules. Citizens of states that don't abide by the guidelines will not be able to enter federal courthouses or use their identity cards to board a commercial flight.

Sophia Cope, a staff attorney at the centrist Center for Democracy and Technology, says the rules only mention privacy once.

"The Real ID Act does not include language that lets DHS prescribe privacy requirements, so there are no privacy regulations related to exchange of personal information between the states, none about skimming of the data on the magnetic stripe, and no limits on use of information by the feds," Cope said.

The Real ID Act, slipped into an emergency federal funding bill without hearings, originally required states to begin issuing the ID documents by May 2008. The proposed rules allow states to ask for an extension until Jan. 1, 2010.

Cope wants Congress to step in and rewrite the rules. The ACLU and Jim Harper, a libertarian policy analyst at the Cato Institute who specializes in identity and homeland security issues, agree.

"With five-plus years behind us, now is the time to be looking at what works and what doesn't work," Harper said. "Students of identification know that a national ID does not help with security."

Maine has already declared it will not follow the rules, and other states are close to joining that rebellion. In Congress, a bipartisan coalition is forming around bills that would repeal portions of the Real ID Act, but it is unclear if today's rules will slow or accelerate these efforts.

You may recall what happened last time a group of states united to refuse to abide by federal mandates... the War of Northern Aggression!

The United States is not mentioned in ANY biblical prophecy. This may be the move that leads to our demise and to the rise of the EU as the western Superpower as described in the Bible. As always, time will tell... but the End is Near.

You Must Decide
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

Vaisnavism is an ancient Hindu Sect that worships Lord Visnu as the Supreme God or Bhagavan.

Like most Hindu sub-religions, Vaisnavism is a very diverse spiritual and religious movement. In the west the most well known Vaisnava sect is the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya. This is to say the disciplic succession of mythic and historic Vaisnava masters (acaryas) that began with Lord Visnu and passed through Lord Brahma (the Creator),  Srila Madvacarya (1238-1317) and Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu (1486-1534). I am honored to be a member of this lineage.

It is my honor to manage the Yahoo E-Group of one of the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya maths (or sects) for my Guru Maharaj, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Bibudha Bodhayan Maharaja, acarya and spiritual master of the Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math. Just to be clear, I'm not a typical Vaisnava and my beliefs should be considered indicative of this (or any other) group.

For information on Srila Bodhayan's Group Click Here

Among Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada's disciples was my first Guru Maharaj:

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (founder/acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, ISKCON). After Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami left his body  (Click Here for questions surrounding his death) ISKCON was rocked by scandals and today has myriad initiating gurus leading it despite the clear instructions of Srila Prabhupada to the contrary. The vast majority of Srila Prabhupada's devotees left ISKCON).

Visit the Official Gopinath Gaudiya Math Web Domain

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur Prabhupada's senior disciple was His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami Maharaj, founder/acarya and spiritual master of the Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math.

Srila Bhakti Pramode Puri Goswami appointed His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Bibudha Bodhayan Maharaja as his successor and acarya of the Sri Gopinath Gaudiya Math.  

As I say, Hinduism, Vaisnavism and the Brahma Madhva Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya is a diverse movement. To facilatate open discussions among all Vaisnavas and others who are interested in this movement, I have just created a new group. So, if you are interested in discussing Vaisnava topics, regardless of your math or views, you are welcome to join us:

Life in a Nursing Home

This was sent to me from a friend. I thought I'd share it with you. It speaks truth.
Crabby Old Man

What do you see nurses? ...What do you see?
What are you thinking.....when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man, ...not very wise,
Uncertain of habit ........with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food.......and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice.....'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice ..the things that you do.
And forever is losing .......... A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not...........lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding .... The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes,'re not looking at me.

I'll tell you who I am ......... As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten.......with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters .........who love one another

A young boy of Sixteen ..with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now. ......a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows......that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now ......... I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide .... And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty ......... My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other ........ With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons ..have gr own and are gone,
But my woman's beside see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, ......... Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children ....... My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me ............... My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ..............I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing......young of their own.
And I think of the years....... And the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man.........and nature is cruel.
Tis jest t o make old age ......look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles..........grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone........where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass ...... A young guy still dwells,
And now and again battered heart swells
I remember the joys........... I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and over again.

I think of the years ..all too few......gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact........that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people and see..
Not a crabby old man. Look closer....see........ME!!

My Interfaith List and the Coming Desecration of Jerusalem

On my Interfaith Prayer List I ran a poll about possibly discussing next month's plans to divide Jerusalem (should such a thing happen God forbid!). I was the only one who voted either way, so I guess we wont be talking about it. BUT today a member sent in a modern prophecy about the United States that was allegedly made in the 1990's. I'd like to offer that post, the link to the prophecy, and my response here.

I'd also like to invite those who are interested to join my Interfaith Prayer list

Hi everyone,

I recently posted the poll about possibly discussing the upcoming desecration of Jerusalem on this list but I was the only member to vote in it. From this, I have to assume it is the unanimous desire of this group that we not get into this topic and I intend to honor this. It will remain a major topic on my blogs (, but not here.

However... as you brought this up Paula, speaking for myself, while there are certain theological issues I don't accept in this modern prophecy, from my cursory reading of the site I think its on the mark.

The United States is not mentioned in any biblical prophecy. This has long led me to the conclusion that the US will not be a major player in the End Time events. The only way this would be the case is if the US falls before the rise of the Rex Mundi (Antichrist/Dijal).

Next month the United States intends to force Israel to accept the partition of the Holy City, something which the biblical prophets specifically say can never happen again. In the Torah HaShem plainly says He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse them. Since at least the 1950's the US has been progressively rejecting God in public and private life. When Bush and Candi Rice perform this desecration of the Holy City of Zion next month it may well be the death nail in our (US) coffin. It may also lead to an Israeli civil war as President Ehud Olmert is despised by most Israelis (as is our dictator here in the US). This could well lead to World War Three. Indeed Israelis and others are calling on the world to:

Support The Israeli No-Confidence Motion:
1) Send everybody you know to:

2) If they are an Israeli citizen, they can sign the motion. If not,
they can sign the Declaration of Solidarity, also provided there.
This Declaration of Solidarity is for citizens of any country to
express their support for the Israeli patriots.

3) Please ask those who will receive your appeal to spread the word in

4) If you have a blog, write a short note about this and provide the

5) Write to other blogs, and ask them to make their readers aware of

6) Write to the various websites that defend Israel and ask them to
write an article about this motion.

7) If you would like to do more, reply to this email.

Thanks for posting this information Paula.
And Please Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

>>>Look what this guy wrote in the year 1999, about our present day wars
with Iraq, about the World Trade Center bombings, and about what
our every day life would soon be like in America. All of it obviously
describing these and a zillion other things, years before they ever took
place. As Americans we had better hope his last prophecies are not as
accurate as the eighty or so that are spelled out in these 1999
prophecies. All of it documented with over a hundred recent photos.
Better hope this guy is wrong with his very descriptive prophecies re:
the America he says we are soon to see. Then, they provide a forum
for comments, and to read the comments made by others, but you can
now respond anonymously.
