Climate Clues

September 29, 2010

Geologist Professor Don J. Easterbrook makes a prediction for the world’s climate out to 2100

In his prediction, the next cool phase bottoms out around 2040 and the following warm phase tops out around 2080 with temperatures higher than currently experienced.

A cold climate would have a severe impact on the worlds ability to grow crops and feed itself with some areas hit harder than others. In Revelation 6:8 we have this prediction:

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

A hot climate would result in scorching temperatures. In Revelation 8:7 we have this prediction:

7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

The conditions in the first biblical prediction are experienced by man-kind in general no matter what his or her affiliation i.e. normal climate. In the intervening time between the two biblical predictions the Christian church is taken out of the Earth and the conditions of the second prediction will be experienced by those remaining and especially by those who have taken the mark of the beast

The Mark of the Beast

September 19, 2010

Revelation 13:

“16And 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:

17And 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”.

Although this prophecy is documented in Revelation 13, it actually takes place in the fifth seal prophecy of Revelation 6. Given that there is the possibility that we are about to see the third seal prophecy fulfilled, a warning is in order.

It may seem fanciful to anyone stumbling on this post that the enforced marking of “civil society” by a totalitarian regime on a global scale could take place but if at some time in the future the reader is faced with the prospect of taking a tattoo, brand or chip, the truth of this prophecy will be self-evident.

The forehead is reserved by God to mark those that belong to him. This is shown some time later in the trumpet prophesies when 144,000 people in the nation of Israel are marked:

2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Satan will use a mark on the forehead or right hand to force allegiance to him.

Anytime prior to the mark of the beast (Satan’s mark) being taken, the invitation of God to eternal life is open. The moment the mark of the beast is received, the invitation is closed, the door to eternity is shut. You have sold your soul.

The choice will be yours: Jesus or Satan; eternal life or eternal destruction. For the right to buy and sell, will you sell your soul?

Jesus’ case for your redemption and refusal to take the mark of the beast is this, from Mark 8:

36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The Beast in the East

March 13, 2010

Speculation as to the identity of the first beast of Revelation 13 which is governmental in nature requires the adoption of a scenario that satisfies the criteria of all other prophecies of the bible pertaining to end-times. The EU in concert with the UN is a strong possibility given the centralized planning and control policies and emerging world-wide influence with the attendant possibility of the backing of the second beast of Revelation which is a major religious figure, possibly a future Pope.

This scenario is the subject of other posts on this site and has as its basis a revived Roman Empire which eventually had East and West divisions centered  in Constantinople and Rome but also more plausibly a revived Holy Roman Empire centered in Germany that had major Roman Catholic Church influence. This scenario ignores the other major world religious influence – Islam.

The uncertainty at present in identifying the best match to the prophecy is the interpretation of the symbolism describing the entity in Rev 13:1 and 2

“1 ….seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion”

This post is not to analyze the two verses but to point to another possible scenario that the first beast is an Islamic Theocracy backed by the second beast (and False Prophet) which would be a new Islamic religious leader with the status of the legendary 10th century al-Mahdi. Other commentators have pursued this line of investigation, Jack Kelly: “The Revived Ottoman Empire” and EAR at fivedoves.com.

The recent arrest by Turkish police of 52 current and former military commanders for their part in “allegedly planning to blow up mosques in order to trigger a military takeover and overthrow the Islamic-oriented government” (reported by AP) is a development worth consideration along with a reduced likelihood of Turkey joining the EU and the Turkish political leaders looking to their own region instead.

It will become apparent as time goes on which scenario is the more credible, especially if there is conflict between the two powers with one or the other gaining ascendancy. At present the EU has the momentum and resources but who knows what restructuring lies in the interim. There is also an unanswered question in respect to US power in Europe; for example, the 90 nuclear warheads based in Italy.

What cannot be ruled out is that the East – West power structure of the old Roman Empire may re-emerge so that the final entity is an amalgam of both scenarios – watch the space.

Energy From Space or Fire From Heaven?

Solar energy collected in space and beamed back to earth by laser could soon be used to power homes and electric vehicles under a project by European space engineers. Revelation 13:13 tells us that the False Prophet will perform a similar act:

13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

It remains to be seen (and discerned) whether the actions of the False Prophet are a Satanic miracle or a man-made deception utilizing the laser technology above.

Earth Worshipers Beware!

The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado is adding a worship area for followers of earth-centred  religions. Revelation 13:12 tells us that the False Prophet will not be so tolerant of competing objects of worship:

12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Notice the distinction between the “earth” and “them that dwell therein”. Even the earth is subordinate in the Beast worship regime.

The Beginning of Sorrows

January 16, 2010

In his Olivet discourse (a dual prophecy describing end-times and the destruction of Jerusalem 70 AD), Jesus made this prophecy:

Matthew 24

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

There have been two World Wars that satisfy “nation rising against nation” and plenty of famines, pestilences and earthquakes, Haiti just being the most recent, so are we ready to move on to verse 9? No, first we must check-in to a parallel prophecy in the Revelation of John that details a sequence of events ushered in by the opening of seals of a book – the Apocalypse. The relevant seals here are 2 and 4:

Revelation 6

4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 6:4 corresponds with Matt 24:6,7 in regard to wars and Rev 6:8 corresponds to Matt 24:7 in regard to famines, pestilences and earthquakes.

Depending on the interpretation of Rev 6:8 “power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill”, either A) 1/4 of the earths population will die or B) an undefined fourth part of the earth will experience varying degrees of death as a result of the causes described. If the correct interpretation is A) then clearly this prophecy has not yet been fulfilled. If B) is correct then the prophecy could be in effect currently.

There is another seal prophecy which if interpreted literally sets a time marker; seal 3 sets this criterion:

Revelation 6:6

A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny

This means that for this prophecy to be fulfilled, wheat will cost 3 times more than barley on world markets. In November 2009 wheat was 1.36 times the cost of barley FOB Gulf of Mexico so conditions then did not match the time marker of seal 3 if that is what it is but in August 1996 wheat was 2.79 times the cost of barley. The freezing northern hemisphere weather could cause  wheat prices to spike in 2010 as they did in the food crisis of 2008 so the ratio could change drastically in the coming months. Bloomberg, on January 10 2010 reported wheat prices climbing to a five week high.

Adopting the position that condition A) has not been met and neither has the time marker we should not move on to the next prophecies but if the conditions have been met, what’s next?

Matthew 24:9

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Revelation 6:9 and 11 (5th seal)

9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Revelation 13:7

7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

The second two verses and the “him” in Rev 13:7 refer specifically to the activities of the first beast of Rev 13; the totalitarian world government that will demand allegiance to a Luciferian (Satanic) regime. Obviously bible believing Christians will be dissenters – and will  suffer the consequences.

Prophecies in Tandem

January 9, 2010

In his Telegraph UK news blog, Gerald Warner made this comment and a prediction:

“The references above to the Soviet Union are deliberate. I employ them because of the very real parallel with the present situation. The global warming frauds always had Plan A and Plan B in preparation. Plan A was to brainwash the population of Britain, America and the rest of the developed world into believing in man-made global warming. That was the preferred option; but it has failed.

Plan B, which will now come into operation, is to replicate what happened in the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Nobody believed in the economic illiteracy that was Marxism-Leninism any more; but jobs, promotion, status, even retaining one’s liberty depended on paying lip service to it. Those are the terms on which the ideology of Global Warming will now be imposed on a sceptical population: by bribery, coercion, brainwashing of children, employment and promotion blackmail.”

Note the uncanny similarity between Gerald Warner’s Plan B prophecy and this bible prophecy from Rev 13:16 and 17:

“16And 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:

17And 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.”

Gerald also comments on religion so it is possible that he has a knowledge of Rev 13 and is making a projection based on it. What Gerald omits to mention is who will impose the ideology but the bible prophecy is clear that it is a brutal totalitarian governmental/religious power with a global reach.

What is also clear is that Green (Eco-fascism) is the new Red (Communism).

Commonism – the new Communism?

January 2, 2010

In his new years address, Pope Benedict XVI used either  the words “common”, “community”, “communities” or “communion” 29 times along with a liberal sprinkling of the word “solidarity” and the term “human family”. At the inauguration of US President Obama there was a similar theme, Rick Warren: “common good“, Barack Obama: “common purpose”,”common good”, “common defense”, “common humanity”, “common dangers“, Bishop Lowery: “community of nations”, “solidarity”, “oneness of our family“. And so global Commonism is born.

Commonism espouses a looming environmental crisis that must be addressed by reducing conventional energy consumption and developing alternative energy sources on the basis of a warming planet when recent science shows cooling. Pope Benedict (new year address) : “The problems looming on the horizon are complex and time is short”‘ “The technologically advanced countries are facing two pressing needs in this regard: on the one hand, to reassess the high levels of consumption due to the present model of development, and on the other hand to invest sufficient resources in the search for alternative sources of energy and for greater energy efficiency”. President Obama (inauguration speech): “We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories”, “and roll back the specter of a warming planet”.

The old Communism operated by way of centralized control but did not succeed at a global level. The new Commonism is starting its march at the global level, building on foundations already laid by organizations with a  global reach but with the same ultimate aim of centralized control by harnessing the momentum of environmentalism.  Pope Benedict advocates even more centralized bureaucracy in the new year address : “Further international agencies may need to be established in order to confront together the stewardship of this “home” of ours”, and centralized wealth distribution in the guise of environmental protection: “If the protection of the environment involves costs, they should be justly distributed, taking due account of the different levels of development of various countries” and “equitable distribution of wealth”. These statements are in concert with the orchestrations of the United Nations.

Commonism will not have global control until the global common good is codified into global common law. To this end the UN and the Vatican are in unison. Pope Benedict devotes three paragraphs to “moral” law in the new year address but the summary is this: “power must always be disciplined by law, and this applies also to relations between sovereign States”. This implies a subjugation of states and peoples to the arbiter of the “law” which begs the question – who is the arbiter?

After 15 paragraphs of political assessment, Pope Benedict moves to spiritual direction – in two sentences: “I likewise invite believers to implore tirelessly from God the great gift of peace. Christians, for their part, know that they can trust in the intercession of Mary, who, as the Mother of the Son of God made flesh for the salvation of all humanity, is our common Mother”. It seems that the business of merging the interests of organized religion with global common law and the sanction of global power take far greater precedence than the salvation of souls for eternity.

And the bible prophecy connection? Consider this from Revelation 13:

“16And 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:

17And 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”.

Now that’s Commonism.

Update 1

The words community, communities and community’s occur 89 times in the modern NIV translation of the bible but do not occur once in the KJV translation. The reason being that Christian Socialists (Communists) have been influential in most modern bible translations; these are invariably copyrighted, the KJV is not, it is open source: “the word of God is not bound” 2 Tim 2:9.

Update 2

The KJV uses the word “common” twice in relation to property and possessions:

Acts 2:44,45 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

Acts 4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

This was not a society wide phenomenon but was a spontaneous action only within the believer group. It was also voluntary and ensured all members needs were met. Neither was it in response to any edict that this was the ideal societal model or that it would result in earthly utopia.

World Government meets World Religion

December 24, 2009

These two emerging forces are found in the imagery and symbolism of the book of Revelation. World Government – Rev 13:1 and World Religion – Rev 13:11

Calls for a new world order have been made intermittently but now the chorus is peaking. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the U.S. Congress late 2009 and called for the institution of a “global economic order” under “global law”. The first President of Europe, Herman Van Rompuy has declared 2009 “the first year of global governance” and a COP15 treaty “another step towards the global management of our planet”. In article 41 of the encyclical letter “Caritas in veritate” Pope Benedict XVI alluded to the construction of  “a new order of economic productivity” and “political authority”. We now know that COP15 failed to “seal the deal” contrary to UN chief Ban Ki-moon’s view, so the COP process moves to Mexico in 2010.

To date, three Conferences of the Parties (COP) have been held in Germany, COP1 being The Berlin Mandate. The Europeans are the most vocal advocates for world government but the Germans are pivotal and not surprising given the history of empires centred there: Holy Roman (1st Reich); German (2nd Reich); Nazi (3rd Reich) with a notable Vatican connection in each case. The Roman Catholic Church has used extreme measures throughout history in a quest for absolute power so the environmental cause presents a strategic opportunity to reassert control.

If the Beast of Rev 13:11 is a theocratic partner to the Beast of world government (Rev 13:1), it follows that we should look to movements in world religion towards support for any global alliance of that nature. The Ecumenical movement is already a movement as described above, even to the point of supporting green theosophy and opposing biblical eschatology as being heretical. Pope Benedict XVI is becoming known as the Green Pope and again in Caritas in veritate article 50 made the leap from “responsible stewardship over nature” to “that covenant between human beings and the environment”. How far away is that position from this green activist?

“The earth is literally our mother, not only because we depend on her for nurture and shelter but even more because the human sepcies has been shaped by her in the womb of evolution. Our salvation depends upon our ability to create a religion of nature.”
– Rene Dubos, board member Planetary Citizens

Hollywood has found the earth religion solution in pantheism, hence James Cameron’s Avatar.

Bible prophecy elaborates on the future world religion in Rev 17 describing a woman sitting on a scarlet beast. Without too much theology, this picture illustrates a major world religious order that has rebelled from submission to a supranatural god and is in open defiance. The leader (Biblically: the False Prophet, Man of Sin or AntiChrist) sets himself up as god on earth forcing allegiance to the world government and religion (Rev 13) and from 2 Thessalonians 2:

4Who 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, shewing himself that he is God.

Note that the terms False Prophet, AntiChrist and Man of Sin are applied to the head of world religion. The head of world government, although anti Christ in nature, is only referred to biblically as the Beast or mouth of the Beast.

The scarlet beast of Rev 17 most likely symbolizes Christian denominations subordinate to the major player that have been duped into the new belief system that integrates environmentalism with watered down Christian teaching sans prophecy. The possibility of other religions; moderate Islam, Hinduism etc going along for the ride is not out of the question.

Update 1

The Vatican, having embraced environmentalism now finds it has a rival muscling in on its patch forcing some damage control and brand differentiation. In an effort to wrest back leadership (and hearts and minds) in the ecological “moral” issue, the Vatican has issued a dismissive criticism of the film “Avatar”.

COP15: The Beast and the False Prophet (Rev. 13)

December 6, 2009

The Beast is rising, the December 7th 2009 Copenhagan Summit is paving the way to a totalitarian Theocratic World Government borne out of environmentalism.

Watch now for a merging of UN/EU interests and a united voice on global government and global law especially in regard to environmental issues. The Beast has been given a voice in accordance with the prophecy of Revelation 13 – EU President, van Rompuy is the first voice of the EU and Ban-Ki Moon is the current voice of the UN.

Watch also for the head of MYSTERY BABYLON (Roman Catholicism as distinct from Catholic Church) to give his power to the Beast in accordance with the prophecy. The UK Roman Catholic leader Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster and the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams are uniting with other world church leaders in support of the UN man-made global warming stance so it is only a matter of time before the Pope does likewise. See here:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article6944485.ece
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/08/national/08warm.html?_r=1

The number of the present Pope, Benedict XVI is 665 (not the 665th, note) and very likely the one spoken of by Apostle Paul in his second letter to the Thessalonians, see here:
http://www.666beast.net/

2 Thessalonians 2
6
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

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

The number of the next Pope could be 666 (Petrus Romanus, a new name with a value of 1) – the False Prophet of Rev. 13. The False Prophet will perform Satanic miracles – do NOT be deceived.

The ultimate Christian battle is victory over the Beast. Do NOT take the mark of the Beast.

Not all of Christianity has fallen for the deception, some Evangelical scholars are disputing the basis of belief in the UN position of man-made global warming. See here:
http://www.christianpost.com/article/20091204/evangelicals-push-back-against-climate-change-hoax/

Followers of Jesus should be very wary of the direction their Church leaders are taking them. If the direction is in alignment with the aforementioned Theocratic World Government, the warning from Jesus is clear: “Come out of her, my people” Rev. 18:4.

Climate Change Propaganda and Indoctrination: How it Works

December 6, 2009

There is a battle for hearts and minds in this world; to use a boxing analogy it’s Christ vs Satan. Prophecy tells us that Satan takes the first 3 1/2 year round on points via his proxy the Beast against Christs proxy the Church. Between rounds 1 and 2 there is considerable wrath from Christ’s father who has a vested interest in the outcome and disputes the round 1 points. Christ comes out swinging at the beginning of the second 1000 year round knocking down Satan who gets up just in time to hear the bell that ends his career.

So what are the tactics that Christ’s opposition – the spirit of Anti-Christ, Satan and the Beast – using to win over hearts and minds i.e. the temple of God in the new covenant?

There are two events in the last 18 months that demonstrate the power of words, charisma, propaganda and indoctrination. The first is the presentation by Barack Obama of the words written by an expert in the field – Jon Favreau..

The second is a move by Satan to claim dominion over the earth using two proxies: environmentalism coupled with world government. An insight into the reason why there was no early reporting of the climate change fraud by MSM and specifically the BBC can be gained by studying the climate change communications strategy used by the BBC among others i.e. know your enemy (the German channel DWTV is also a good primer).

Two versions of the strategy “Rules of the Game” are linked here:
http://klimakatastrophe.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/rulesofthegame.pdf
http://www.futerra.co.uk/downloads/NewRules:NewGame.pdf

Principle 6 item 20 has been successful in luring modern evangelicals to the cause. So much for victory over the Beast, these people are embedded in the Beasts training camp even before Micheal Buffer’s “Let’s get ready to rumble”. See here:
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/08/national/08warm.html?_r=1

Principles 4 and 5 have been employed successfully to get into the hearts and minds of Christs “little ones”, your children. See here:
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/net_result_sure_beats_nut_revolt_qafIP4m2M9TAty2eLxyz5M

Fellow followers of “The Way”, if your senses are not tuned to discern truth from propaganda and indoctrination, the man of sin will stroll right into your temple and set up camp.

It should be a sobering to realize that a great many atheists have discovered the environmentalist religion – world government connection along with alert Christians – strange bedfellows. It remains to be seen how many of the same atheists make the bible eschatology connection. I’m sure many will given the evidence, meanwhile many unwary Christians have fallen for the deception and have joined the Beast’s ranks.
