Je-wish You a Merry Xmas

By Rabbi Naphtali ‘Tuly’ Weisz

At this time of year, many Jews struggle with finding the right message to teach our kids about Christmas. Even something as harmless as wishing neighbors and coworkers a ‘Merry Christmas’ makes some Jews uncomfortable. Raising proud Jewish children in America is no easy task as more as more Jews abandon the faith and assimilate. Nativity Scenes, Christmas Trees and any perceived threats against Judaism are met with great resistance by many Jews. As much as I understand those concerns, I also think that we are missing the mark and so I proudly wish a Merry Christmas to my Christian friends.

Yes, it is true, assimilation is a frightening problem today. According to Pew’s Survey of Jewish Americans taken in October, one in five Jews describe themselves as “Jews of no religion” and two thirds of them are not raising their children as Jewish in any way. At this rate, Judaism’s strongest community outside of Israel is at great risk of sinking like the Titanic.

It is easy to look around and point the blame at Christian America for so many Jews shedding their heritage. Yet the real villain here is not the faith of another religion, it is the faithlessness of society at large. In his wonderful article “Is Christmas Good for the Jews”, Rabbi Benjamin Blech argues that “our children today are threatened by the spirit of secularism more than by songs dedicated to proclaiming a holy night.” He goes on to say that Christmas in America has been responsible for many positive Jewish results like greater self awareness and concludes that he really loves the Christmas season.

Rabbi Daniel Lapin explains that “Secular fundamentalism has successfully injected into American culture the notion that the word “Christmas” is deeply offensive. I think we Jews may be making a grievous mistake in allowing them to banish Christmas without challenge.” Lapin concludes with a call to his fellow Jews to turn their backs on secularism and to wish their Christian friends a very merry Christmas as opposed to the politically correct “Happy Holidays.”

Christmas is certainly a time that highlights the differences between Jews and Christians, yet getting to know so many Christian Zionists has demonstrated to me that what unites us is far more important than what divides us. I agree wholeheartedly with Rabbi Blech and Rabbi Lapin and wish all of my Christian friends and readers a very merry Christmas and a year of stronger bonds between our two communities so we can fight together against the forces of faithlessness while uniting in our mutual reverence for God.

On a lighter note, these Jews are also getting into the holiday spirit by putting a Jewish twist on some classic Christmas songs, enjoy! (Begin watching at 0:50)   A Kretzmach Niggun

The US is Complicit in the Rise of the Islamic State

 ISIS, contrary to official claims, is just a re-branding of Al-Qaeda (and other fanatic jihadists such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood) who use horric violence and beheadings to terrorize and control those it rules over. It is an abomination against humanity and should be exterminated like the vermin they are.  Sadly, our own American government is responsible for the rise of ISIS.

As usual President Obama and his national security team are trying to play politics with the disaster unfolding in Iraq by ignoring the larger national security implications of the rise and murderous blitzkrieg across northern Iraq by ISIS.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka observed in an article for Breitbart, the fact is that ISIS “has grown in strength and ferocity in the last three years to a point that it now is more powerful and capable than the original Al Qaeda whence it came. It has become Al Qaeda 2.0. ISIS’s growth is in part a result of conscious actions and policy decisions taken by the current US administration.”

Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) claimed individuals tied to the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated President Barack Obama’s administration. In April 2012, West said “we should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood-associated groups to be influencing our national security strategy”

Frank Gaffney of the National Center for Security Policy has spent many years documenting the Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the US government and the Muslim Brotherhood ties of such key Obama administration figures as Hillary Clinton’s close advisor Huma Abedin and Mohamed Elibiary, a noted Islamist serving as a Senior Fellow on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council.

Elibiary has been particularly unabashed in his promotion of the radical Islamist point of view and posted this very revealing Tweet to his Twitter account on June 13 (hat tip to Kerry Picket for pointing it out): “As I’ve said b4 inevitable that “Caliphate” returns. Choice only whether we support #EU like Muslim Union vision or not.”

For more information on the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration of American institutions and government we strongly urge you to watch The Muslim Brotherhood in America video series by Frank Gaffney and the Center for National Security Policy.

Here at Israel in Prophecy we wrote about the Muslim Brotherhood infilration of the US government, over two years ago. See our article MB

US Presidential Involvement

For the past decade, two successive US administrations have maintained close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and Libya, to name just the most prominent cases.

After an official US government assessment (Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010) of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements,  it was concluded that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements (italics added for emphasis throughout).

 Under this  foolishly naïve and uninformed view, chaos and the ascendancy of radical Islam in the Middle East and North Africa has certainly flourished under the Obama administration-and precisely because the administration shifted from supporting stability to supposed moderate Islamic movements.

As a result the Obama administration at the beginning of the Arab Spring, threw Hosni Mubarak,a long time U.S. ally under the bus in order to support the the Muslim Brotherhood.   And we saw how that ended-with another revolution, hailed as the largest revolution in human history, with the average Egyptian accusing Obama of being a terrorist supporter.

Al Jazeera’s blog  posted a story featuring tweets from the Director of Research at the Brookings Center in Doha, Qatar, who reported that an Egyptian newspaper’s front page story claimed President Barack Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Shadi Hamid of Brookings stated  that a son of a prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader threatened Obama with the release of evidence revealing his membership.

One could hardly come up with a more explosive charge about a US president than secret membership in an Islamist group. It becomes less of a mystery, however, when one realizes that the President has direct family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood: His half-brother, Malik Obama, is – at least indirectly – a member of the organization.

Jonathan Spyer, senior research fellow at the Global Research in International Affairs Center and an Arabic speaker, tells The Blaze that the newspaper — Al-Wafd — specifically accuses Obama of being a member of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Al-Wafd article goes on to say that Obama originally embraced the thought of the Brotherhood while living in Indonesia. Al Hewar Centre in Washington, DC, obtained the documents in question.

Daniel Greenfield writes:

“Al-Hewar, which actually got hold of the documents, is linked to the International Institute of Islamic Thought… which is a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Figures in the Muslim Brotherhood had threatened to leak understandings with Obama Inc. This is the next best thing. It warns Obama that if he tries to forget about them, they can prove that the relationship was official policy.”

To be sure, after the ousting of the Brotherhood in Egypt, several Brotherhood members made, sometimes not so veiled, threats to the Obama administration if it turned its back on them, including top ranking Brotherhood member, Khairat al-Shatter’s son who threatened to expose a document revealing the secret membership. 

US State Department documents obtained under the FOIA confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public. When these thousands of pages are released, answers to many of the Obama administrations hitherto inexplicable policies in the Middle East may be explained.

 Another State Department paper marked “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU)” contained talking points for Deputy Secretary of State William Burns’ scheduled July 14, 2012 meeting with Mohammad Sawan, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who was also head of the Brotherhood’s Justice and Construction Party. The document is heavily redacted, but nevertheless provides clear indication of Washington’s sympathies for the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as a major political force in the post-Gaddafi Libya. The talking points recommended that Secretary Burns tell Sawan that the US government entities “share your party’s concerns in ensuring that a comprehensive transitional justice process is undertaken to address past violations so that they do not spark new discontent.”

These documents on the Obama administration’s connections with the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya are especially disturbing in the context of earlier revelations made in Arabic media, including that the Brotherhood’s Libyan wing was very much involved in the 9/11 Benghazi U.S. consulate attack.

Religious Persecution

ISIS has been killing non-Muslims in many cities in Iraq and Syria in an attempt to eradicate the Christian faith in the countries including little children. There’s been several executions of believers, including crucifixions and the beheadings of children. The children’s heads are being erected on poles in a city park according to an eyewitness who spoke with CNN.

“There is a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick and have them in the park. The world hasn’t seen this kind of atrocity in generations”  a prominent Chaldean-American businessman Mark Arabo told CNN

The Yezidis, a religious minority that number 300,000 – 700,000 in Kurdistan, face extermination as ISIS, spread its Caliphate through northern Iraq. The terrorists identify the Yezidis, a  4,000-year-old religion as “devil worshippers.”

Revelations

Back in 2011 Palestinian Media Watch founder Itamar Marcus and analyst Nan Jacques Zilberdik translated a 1995 book by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood movement’s fifth official leader, Mustafa Mashhur, that sheds light on just how Egypt’s Brotherhood views itself and its mission to realize the creation of the global Caliphate. 

“Jihad is the Way” is the last of a five-volume work, “The Laws of Da’wa” by Mashhur, who headed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt from 1996-2002. The book goes into some detail about the Brotherhood’s objectives of advancing the global conquest of Islam and reestablishing the Islamic Caliphate, the public and private duties of jihad and the struggle Muslims must wage against Israel. 

ISIS is absolutely and undeniably funded by The Muslim Brotherhood and the US. Former U.S. Representative from Ohio, Dennis Kucinich , a Democrat serving from 1997 to 2013, in an interview with Fox News on August 13th 2014, connected ISIS, Al-Qaeda to the CIA and US military.

The US military trained the Syrian rebels in the West’s bid to oust President Bashar. These so-called rebels were heavily infiltrated by Al-Qaeda agents. The CIA sanctioned ISIS/al-Qaeda, /Muslim Brotherhood has convoys of brand new matching Toyota’s, the same vehicles seen among NATO assault armed terrorists operating everywhere from Libya, Jordan, Turkey, Ukraine, & Syria, and now Iraq. It is a synthetic, U.S. NWO State sponsored regional mercenary expeditionary force.

In an interview with the Jerusalem Post Marcus spoke about what he views as the danger of downplaying the Brotherhood’s ideology, or expecting it to moderate its objectives after being allowed into the political process. The Muslim Brotherhood movement differs from international terror groups like Al-Qaida, he said, only in tactics, not in its goals.

“The capital of the caliphate – the capital of the United States of the Arabs – will be Jerusalem, God willing,” radical Islamist preacher Safwat Higazi told thousands of Brotherhood supporters at a Cairo soccer stadium for a 2012 rally. “Our capital shall not be in Cairo, Mecca or Medina,” he said, before leading the crowd in chants of “Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.”

If the Caliphate is “inevitable” it is only because the Obama administration has, through naïve and foolish political correctness, adherence to a dangerously cynical political agenda – or the penetration of Islamist agents of influence – allowed the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS to reach critical mass and make it so.

 

 

Descending into Chaos

Israel Hamas War

Civilized societies, it now becomes evident, have a moral weakness that can be taken advantage of by Islam’s Cult of Death. Hamas has deployed in its war against Israel is a “weapon” so evil yet ingenious that if adopted on a massive scale would make it impossible for any enlightened country, no matter how powerful, to defeat its enemy.

Imagine this scene. An entire army goes into battle with a rifle in one hand and a baby in the other. The first is meant to murder, the other to prevent their opponents from returning fire. They pillage, they rape, they conquer, secure in the knowledge that their protection is the moral code of their victims whose developed conscience – and perhaps fear of critical judgment from the media for their insensitivity to the safety of infants – doesn’t permit them to respond.

It is a perversely brilliant strategy. It neutralizes every weapon, no matter how advanced. It gives the advantage to those who have no regard for the sanctity of life. It empowers precisely those willing to forgo every last vestige of civilized behavior over people still committed to their humanity.

The only response to this is either to capitulate or to employ biblical standards of warfare that would make such atrocious acts far targets. From my view, if the Palestinians are so lost and souless as to allow their own children to be used by an evil so perverse as Hamas, then why should we stay our hand when faced with extinction?

The Torah shows that the ancient Israelites, led by HaShem himself offered no quarter to the pagan tribes of Canaan and even their children were to be destroyed. This may appear heartless but when the Israelites did not enforce this standard they very often paid the price.

We must determine for ourselves what standards of morality we will adhere to. Will they be standards which worship death and evil, and will result in the deaths of millions, possibly billions, or shall we stand for righteousness, good and life and become worshippers of the One True God – HaShem the God of Israel whose own standards condemn the actions of Hamas and the crazed radical Jihadists?

What say you?

ISIS – Rise of the Caliphate

Some time ago, Israel in Prophecy and many others warned the world of the coming rise of a new Caliphate and a war between Shia and Sunni Muslims. That warning fell on deaf ears and has now become a reality. ISIS – The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has made major gains in Iraq and is now in possession of advanced US weaponry. They are currently assaulting the Kurds to the north, have seized the all important Mosel Dam and have murdered thousands in the most brutal ways. Christians, Jews and other religions are told to leave, convert or die.

I believe ISIS will continue to grow and very well could be an existential threat to Israel and even America due to the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into Barak Obama’s administration. Obama’s weak, and I believe deliberate, lack of leadership has emboldened ISIS and radical Islam in general.

The world must wake up to the reality that Islam is not changing and is becoming more and more radicalized. The only solution is to eradicate this type of religion from existence. Religion that glorifies war in the name of its god and destroys its own children to advance its abhorrent ideology is truly demonic and must be destroyed.

US Foreign Policy

The former ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton stated that under Barak Obama’s very weak leadership that “the world’s descending into chaos” and if America continues to pull back internationally, “you’re going to have anarchy increasing.” Meaning that America’s once stabilizing force, whether seen as good or bad is being badly eroded by the Boy Who Would Be King, and the world will be worse off, particularly since the advance of militant radical Islam.

The President’s foreign policy — in regards to Russia, Ukraine, Iraq, and Gaza is at an approval rating of a mere 36%, an all-time low.

Bolton stated: It’s just the tip of the iceberg. Look, Putin gave us strategic warning eight years ago when he said the collapse of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century. That was a statement right then that he intended to get Russian hegemony in the space of the former Soviet Union. That’s what he is doing and he is meeting no effective American or European resistance.

Ebola Outbreak

According to a senior health fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, the world has no strategic plan to contain the worst Ebola outbreak in history while scientists are saying an outbreak on U.S. soil would require sweeping measures. Total quarantine of cities or sections of infected cities and restrictions on air travel could be expected. The CDC has 20 known quarantine stations throughout the U.S. but it is not known if those would be adequate to contain a full outbreak.

All this chaos is creating the perfect storm which will bring about the rise of the evil Tyrant of the Book of Daniel and the Christian book of Revelation. What ever you call him – Armilus, Dajjal, the Man of Sin, the Antichrist, the World Teacher, Matreiya – he is a despotic ruler who will bring humanity to the brink of oblivion.

 

As my studies and those of countless other demonstrates, this perfect storm is being created by a small group of elites to bring about their New World Order – whether you call them the Illuminati, the Money Power, the Brotherhood – they are bringing doom to our planet and must be not only stopped but destroyed as well. Only HaShem can accomplish this. Let us pray for His will and hope for deliverance.

The Army of the Black Pope

jesuit logoSince the election of the very first Jesuit Pope – Francis Xavier, (Petrus Romanus) I have spent a considerable amount of time studying and researching the Jesuit Order, their origins and history.  The say the least I am convinced that The Jesuit Pope plays a key role in the last days and his abominable order, the Society of Jesus.  For a number of years as I researched and uncovered the machinations of the New World Order and their “thousands of conspiracies operating in tandem”, I knew that there was a missing piece of the puzzle – a veritable ‘missing link’ which would complete the picture. I knew from my studies that the Catholic Orders were very much part of what refer to as the Illuminati Web.  But is was not till this year that I have now come to terms with the reality that the Jesuits are the primary architects of the New World Order and they themselves created the Bavarian Illuminati and the modern version which is simply called the Illuminati.

I am simply dumbfounded by the massive amount of documentation and evidence that exists proving the satanic agenda of the Jesuits and the Papacy and the fact that most of it has been suppressed or has not been given a voice. That all is going to change, at least for those who are seeking out the truth.

I also soon discovered that the Jesuits were the power behind Hitlers Nazi Germany and it’s final solution for me and my co-religionists (the Jewish nation). The plans of the Jesuit controlled Papacy regarding Israel and Jerusalem are bone-chilling.

Read the ground-breaking expose’ Vatican Assassins by Eric Jon Phelps who assembles a massive array of historical evidence Jesuit complicity in most of the European wars, assassination of heads of state including US presidents. There is ample amount of evidence that shows the real Society of Jesus to be a Luciferian Occult Organization with connections to The Black Nobility and the Committee of 300.

In fact the evidence shows that the Jesuits are not only part of the occult based web of secret societies and New World Order groups but is in fact the puppet-master behind them. Numerous statesmen and national leaders have warned of the power of the Jesuits and their drive for world domination.

Another important book to educate yourselves on the unparalleled power of the Papacy and the Jesuit Order is Bill Hughes The Secret Terrorists which documents the Jesuit machinations behind the establishment of America’ first three central banks, the assassinations and attempted assassinations  of not only Abe Lincoln but also Presidents, Andrew Jackson, William Harrison, James Garfield, William McKinley and JFK. He documents the Jesuit agenda to overthrow the US through the Freemasons and International Bankers which they control. Hughes quotes a letter from Abe Lincoln to his friend Charles Chiniquy in which the President believed that the Jesuits were plotting his assassination. Few people realize that on his way to his inauguration, Abe Lincoln was made aware of a Jesuit plot to murder him in Baltimore before he took office and took measures to prevent this.

As time goes on we will be posting much more information and links to illuminate the deeds, actions and agenda of the most despotic organization that ever existed. Check our page – The Black Army of the Pope for updates. Please come back!

 

Reality Check – America’s Destiny, Part 1

“Not only were many of the founders of the United States Government Masons, but they received aid from a secret and august body existing in Europe, which helped them to establish this country for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few. The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body—unseen and for the most part unknown—and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestle board setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.”

—Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Freemason

It’s our contention that America was from the moment of it’s conception under the control of dark forces of the Illuminati Network, though they were not known as such at the time. We shall document much of America’s hidden history.  We believe America’s prophetic role is central to the End of Days prophecies.  Evidence suggests that contrary to many long held belief’s, that the so called Anti-Christ is intimately connected to America.

America’s own history demonstrates a vast conspiracy of control by a small group of extremely powerful people and groups.  The prophet Daniel states that the end time despot – The Contemptible One, though powerful is not a power unto himself (Daniel 7). The power that he exercises is through the efforts of a small group, whom we believe is the Illuminati Network which is control of America:

“….a despicable person will arise, on whom the honor of kingship has not been conferred, but he will come in a time of tranquility and seize the kingdom by intrigue.  The overflowing forces will be flooded away before him and shattered, and also the prince of the covenant.  After an alliance is made with him he will practice deception, and he will go up and gain power with a small force of people. In a time of tranquility he will enter the richest parts of the realm, and he will accomplish what his fathers never did, nor his ancestors; he will distribute plunder, booty and possessions among them, and he will devise his schemes against strongholds, but only for a time.”   Daniel 11:21-24

The Design of the Great Seal

The combination of the Phoenix (Eagle), the pyramid, and the all-seeing eye in the Great Seal of the United States is more than mere chance or coincidence. There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies which came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War. Most of the patriots who fought and achieved American independence from Great Britain belonged to these societies, and derived  inspiration, courage, and high purpose from the ancient teachings. There can be no question that the Great Seal was directly inspired by these orders which set forth the purpose for this nation. A purpose seen and known to the Founding Fathers.

Regarding the Great Seal of the United States, Charles Totten stated that the Solar Eye on the Great Pyramid’s capstone was called the eye of Apollo, “…the sacred and mysterious Eye of the Most High of the gods…. Thus it is held in the highest estimation by all Royal Arch Masons.”

Manly P Hall, one of Freemasonry’s shining lights called the American eagle upon the Great Seal  a conventionalized phoenix. The Phoenix he taught was the secret destiny of civilization. The occultists understand, that the word phoenix is derivative of Phoenicians (Canaanites) and refers to the ancient people who inhabited the very land recorded in the book of Enoch as the entry point for Watcher presence from Mt. Hermon in Phoenicia. Intriguingly, the consonants in Hebrew that make up the word Hermon are ch-r-m or the noun “cherem,” meaning devoted to destruction.

Freemasonry’s venerated symbols, the square and compass are not only useful in architecture but are essential to navigation. The map coordinates for Mount Hermon – 33.33 – the location of the Watcher first contact in ancient Phoenicia, plays an important role in Freemasonry’s use of the numbers 3 and specifically the important number of 33.

Osiris is Apollo is Nimrod is Appolyon

It is universally recognized by scholars that the biblical personality of Nimrod was none other than Osiris of Egypt and the Greek god of the sun, Apollo. The Universal Standard Encyclopedia states that APOLLO (Gr. Apollon), a Greek god, the son of Zeus, the father of the gods, and Leto, daughter of the Titan Coeus…Apollos’ identification as the sun-god is universal among later writers…The attributes of Apollo are the bow and quiver, the cithara and plectrum, the snake, raven, shepherd’s crook, tripod, and laurel.

The designers of the Great Seal incorporated the Egyptian symbology and Roman/Greek mottos into the seal to cipher a prophecy about the return of the Freemason/Occult god Apollo, also known as Osiris (aka, Nimrod).

The God of this World

The Great Pyramid itself is but one structure within a major Necropolis that was designed according to the layout of the constellation Orion, the Great Hunter in the sky [Osiris/Gilgamesh/Nimrod/Apollo]. According to various scholars, Osiris is none other than the Biblical Nimrod, the ‘mighty hunter before the Lord.’

Evidence suggests that the earliest legends of mythology were preceded by a belief in the God (YHWH to the Jewish people) as the creator of all things and the ruler of heaven. The New Testament tells us of a struggle between the Ruler of Heaven and the god of this world and the prince of the air.This god is known popularly as Satan or Lucifer.

Another fascinating struggle between the ruler of the heavens opposing the power of the air occurred in early Sumerian mythology after Enki, the god of wisdom and water, created Humanity out of clay. It appears that Anu, who was at first the most powerful of the Sumerian gods and the ruler of the heavens, was superseded in power and popularity by Enlil, the god of the air.

This mythos is central to the founding of the United States and the construction of its capital, including the Osiris phallic symbol represented by the 6,666-inches-high Egyptian obelisk known as the Washington Monument.

The motto at the top of the Great Seal, is Annuit Coeptis. This Latin phrase has been traced to Virgil, the renowned Roman poet who lived in the first century BCE. In his epic masterpiece, the Aeneid, he tells the story of Aeneas, son of Venus, ancestral hero of the Romans, and his journey from Troy to Italy. In book IX, line 625, is the phrase: “Jupiter omnipotens, audacibus annue coeptis.” (All-powerful Jupiter, favor [my] daring undertakings.)

This is a prayer to the god Jupiter.  The prayer is a petition that the Illuminati/Freemason undertaking [the secret destiny of America as symbolized in “finishing” the pyramid] may be completed, and that the new age will find fulfillment.

Annuit coeptis is the Latin motto suggested in 1782 by Charles Thomson, the Founding Father chosen by Continental Congress to come up with the final design for the Great Seal of the United States. Thomson was a friend of the Freemasons and staunch supporter of the American Philosophical Society, created the phrase from inspiration he found in a prophetic line in Virgil’s Eclogue IV: Magnus ab integro seclorum nascitur ordo [Virgil’s Eclogue IV (line 5)], the interpretation of the original Latin being, “and the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew.” This suggests a renewing of the old world order.

On June 20, 1782, Congress approved Thomson’s design for both sides of the Great Seal whose official description for the reverse side specifies:

“A Pyramid unfinished. In the Zenith an Eye in a triangle surrounded with a glory proper. Over the Eye these words “Annuit Cœptis”.

Although Thomson did not provide an exact translation of Annuit Coeptis, he explained its meaning in conjunction with the Eye of Providence in a triangle surrounded by rays of golden light (“a glory proper”) in the zenith of an unfinished pyramid:

The Eye over it & the Motto allude to the many signal interpositions of providence in favour of the American cause.

While this explanation may seem innocuous to most, we should remember the power behind the Founding Fathers were the guardians of the old mystery religions.  This means that the intent of the prayer Annuit Coeptis is asking Jupiter/Osiris/Apollyon for intervention in their cause.  Whose cause? Not the American people, but the Illuminati’s cause. The implication suggests an intervention (interposition) in their cause. But when?

I see Thru the Mirror Darkly

Sadly Christians since the Middle Ages have been led to believe this phrase from the Cumaean Sibyl, prophetess of Apollo was prophesying the birth of Jesus and that it was his arrival that gave rise to “the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew” or New Order of the Ages.

According to the Cumaean Sibyl, the New World Order begins during a time of chaos when the earth and oceans are tottering. This is when the son of promise arrives on earth—Apollo, the son of Jupiter, to whom the Founders lifted up a prayer to – Annuit Cœptis.

Apollo is according to his admirers a savior born of “a new breed of men sent down from heaven” when heroes and gods intermingled their seeds. This sounds eerily similar to the Watchers and daughters of men intermixing. And this intermixing is what scientists are doing this century through genetic engineering of human-animal chimeras.

In ancient literature, Jupiter was the Roman replacement of YHVH as the greatest of the gods. Apollo comes to rule the final New World Order when “Justice returns, returns old Saturn’s [Satan’s] reign.”

The ancient goddess Justice who returns Satan’s reign (Saturnia regna, the pagan golden age), was known to the Egyptians as Ma’at and to the Greeks as Themis, while to the Romans she was Lustitia. Statues and reliefs of her adorn thousands of government buildings and courts around the world, especially in Washington, DC, as familiar Lady Justice, blindfolded and holding scales and a sword. She represents the enforcement of secular law and is, according to the Sibyl’s conjure, the authority that will require global compliance to the zenith of Satan’s authority concurrent with the coming of Apollo.

In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, the Masonic ‘Messiah’ that returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit—verified by the same name—that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World Order. According to a key prophecy in the book of 2nd Thessalonians, the Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo.

“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 [Apoleia; Apollyon, Apollo].”

Websters Dictionary points out that Apollyon was a common variant of Apollo until recent history. Numerous scholarly and classical works identify Apollyon as the god Apollo—the Greek deity of death and pestilence.

An example of this is found in The Agamemnon of Aeschylus, a play by the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus:

“Apollo, thou destroyer, O Apollo, Lord of fair streets, Apollyon to me.”

Accordingly, the name Apollo turns up in ancient literature with the verb apollymi or apollyo, (destroy) and scholars including W.R.F. Browning believe Apostle Paul may have identified the god Apollo as the ‘spirit of Antichrist’ operating behind the persecuting Roman emperor, Domitian, who wanted to be recognized as ‘Apollo incarnate’ in his day.

Revelation 17:8 also connects the coming of Antichrist with Apollo, revealing that “The Beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition [Apolia, Apollo], meaning the Beast Apollyon shall ascend from the bottomless pit and enter him.

Abaddon is another name for Apollo (Rev. 9:11), identified historically as the king of demonic “locusts” (Revelation 9:1-11). This means among other things that Apollo is the King of the Abyss that opens the bottomless pit, out of which an army of transgenic locusts erupts upon earth.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon” (Rev. 9: 1-11).

The fallen angel ‘Apollo’ who unlocks the bottomless pit and unleashes the thunderous hoards of Great Tribulation locusts is therefore none other than the son of Satan and the spirit that will inhabit the Masonic Antichrist.

The Secret of the Great Seal

This means the Great Seal of the United States is a prophecy forecasting the return of Apollo and the culmination of Novus ordo seclorum (a New Order of the Ages or New World Order) This supernatural entity was known and feared in ancient times by different names; Apollo, Osiris, and even further back as Nimrod, who Masons consider to be the father of their institution.

The Great Seal shows a thirteen-step pyramid with 1776 in Roman numerals which is taken to mean the year 1776. 1776 was not only the year that the Declaration of Independence was signed and the creation of the Bavarian Illuminati, but was also a special year in the Mayan calendar.  Just as the last katun in the Great Cycle is katun 2012, the first katun in the cycle of thirteen was katun 1776. In fact, the katun ended thirty-three days before the signing. So 1776 is the bottom level of the pyramid, where the date is actually inscribed—the top of the pyramid is therefore 2012. The 13 courses of the pyramid are 13 baktun’s of the Mayan calendar which ends at the close of the year 2012.  The intervention begins in 2013, possibly 33 days after it’s close if the pattern of Illuminati symbolism holds true.

The only known Mayan inscription that elaborates on the specific significance behind the end of the thirteenth baktun—December 21, 2012—was discovered on Monument 6 at Tortuguero, in Tabasco, Mexico. Though defaced from previous looting of the archaeological location, scholars were able to partially translate the monument, finding that it refers to a year 2012 return of Bolon Yokte K’u, the underworld lord who represents the solar system and the nine support gods orbiting the Sun. This is the same date the Toltec prophesied the physical return of the serpent god Quetzalcoatl. Toltec tradition claims that the return could be a potentially cataclysmic event that will actually launch a new Golden Age of ascended consciousness.

Other Calculations and Considerations

The year 1776 at the base of the pyramid is understood by Masons worldwide to be the year 5776 Anno Lucis (in the year of light). This is because the ancient Craft workers add four thousand years to the common date, the number of years that conventional theology assumes creation began before Jesus: thus, 4,000+1,776=5,776 or 2016 in the modern calendar.

Why is this important? Because 5,776 is exactly how many inches high the Great Pyramid in Giza would be when completed with its capstone, a sacred fact to occultist orders. (2012 is the Jewish year 5772, which ended in the month of September).

Yet if the year 1776 represents the starting date toward the completion of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception, as Manly P. Hall stated, what date did Freemasonry envision that the work would be finished in order that Osiris could return to inhabit his temple? This is found in the rabbinic Jewish calendar as well as the Scottish Rite Freemasonry, who, unlike their other brethren, prefer adding 3,760 years to the common date. In order for this superior side of Masonry to arrive at the appropriate number for their finished pyramid and the completed work (the height of the pyramid with its capstone reaching upward of 5,776 inches), they have to add the future date, 2016, to the common era, or 3,760+2,016=5,776

2012, three and one-half years before the Masonic ending date 2016, could thus be viewed as the beginning of the Tribulation period spoken of in Christian texts.

Christmas Time During Hell on Earth

11:11 am on December 21, 2012, is three and one-half days before Christmas this year. Consider that the Christian text of Revelation, chapter 11, describes the two witnesses who prophesy for 1,260 days or 3.5 years or 42 months before Apollyon kills them and they lie in the street of Jerusalem for three and one-half days. Note what it says happens:

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (Revelation 11:9–11)

It is possible that the text above is describing the two witnesses being killed during the Christmas season.  What other international known holiday besides Christmas results in people worldwide exchanging gifts to each other? The description of the two witnesses as ‘candlestands’ could also connect them to Hanukkah, which occurs in December. Interesting enough is the fact that in 2016, Channukah begins on December 25th.

The year 2012 could very well mark the beginning of the Great Tribulation, also known in Jewish circles as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.  Not only could this scenario fit with Daniel’s prophecy when the Israel endures intense persecution, but also when Antichrist enthrone’s himself as God in the temple. This would also conform well with the Masonic and Great Seal prophecies forecasting the return of the Great Architect  Hiram Abiff (Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod), who enters the finished temple as god, in this case, mid-2016, which is three and one-half years following 2012.

Mark Biltz research into Jewish feasts and blood moon eclipses,  found evidence corroborated by the NASA website of a rare event called a tetrad, in which four consecutive total lunar eclipses or blood moons appear in a century, will coincide with Passover holy days in 2014–2015.

According to Biltz, tetrads have historically appeared around special dates in Israel’s history such as during Passover and Succoth following Israel becoming a nation in 1948, and again in 1967–1968 following the Six-Day War when Israel recaptured Jerusalem. In 2014–2015, blood moons will occur the first day of the Hebrew year and again on the High Holy Day of Rosh Hashanah. If these are in fulfillment of the prophecies of  Joel 2:31 concerning “The sun [being] turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord,” they could hypothetically indicate the arrival of the true Messiah of Israel in 2015–2016.

2012 and Prophecy from the Zohar on Messiah’s Return

Widely considered the most important work of Jewish Kabbalah, the Zohar is a collection of books written in medieval Aramaic over seven hundred years ago containing mystical commentary on the Pentateuch (five books of Moses, the Torah). In addition to interpreting Scripture, the “Vaera” section (volume 3, section 34) includes “The signs heralding Mashiach,” or “The coming of the Messiah.” The fascinating date for “his” appearance is set in the Zohar at late 2012. However, since 5772 (the Jewish 2012) has passed, this particular Zohar prophecy did not materialize.  The Zohar also states that the time of Jacob’s trouble, which the Christians call the Great Tribulation, will commence according to this ancient text in the year 2012 when the kings of the earth gather in Rome and are killed by meteoric stones from the sky.

This last rabbinic prophecy from the Zohar may be actually referring to the rise of Peter Romanus during a conclave to elect a new pope.

Petrus Romanus – The Last Pope

Interestingly, among other scholars of the implications of the year 2012, a few have pointed to a prophecy taken from St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes.” Tom Horn’s latest book titled “Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here, sheds light on ancient Catholic prophecies from St. Malachy concerning the Church, foretelling that the pope following Benedict XVI, the current pope who was installed in 2005, will be the final pontiff:

“As the legend goes, Malachy experienced what is today considered a famous vision commonly called ‘The Prophecy of the Popes.’ The prophecy is a list of Latin verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, ‘Peter the Roman,’ whose reign would end in the destruction of Rome.”

The final segment of the prophecy reads:

“In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the City of Seven Hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people.”

While the year 2012 is not directly mentioned, Horn says the Vatican’s Jesuit mathematician and code breaker Rene Thibaut wrote 61 years ago it would be fulfilled in 2012. Thibaut’s codex – La Mystérieuse Prophétie des Papes (“The Mysterious Prophecy of the Popes”), issued in 1951 found concealed in the Prophecy of the Popes a clever number of word plays that form many acrostics and anagrams. An example of one of the linguistic codes may hold cryptic agreement with Ronald L. Conte’s conclusion that Petrus Romanus will take the name Pius.

Horn also points to 19th century collection titled “Lectures on the Revelation” by Rev. William J. Reid, pastor of First United Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pa., which were given over a period of time ending in March 1876. An excerpt from one of the lectures published in 1878 attempts to determine the official start of the papal system, combining both temporal and spiritual authority, and states: “If it began in the year 752, and if it is to continue for one thousand two hundred and sixty years, then it is to be destroyed in the year 2012.”

It is highly unlikely any pope would choose this name given it’s infamous status. Catholic experts say the title “Petrus Romanus” is a potent in that it indicates the last pope will revive an authoritarian style Babylonian State Religion. It is believed that during the reign of Peter the Roman, the great apostasy mention by the Apostle Paul begins. Staunch Catholics believe Peter the Roman will be the shepherd that reinstates the moral authority of the Church.

Petrus Romanus is also believed to be the False Prophet who rises from within the ranks of Catholicism itself as a result of Illuminati influences.

There are also Catholics who believe Rome is complicit in an intentional cover-up involving the true Third Secret of Fatima as well as other suppressed Catholic foresights that are rife with wildly different predictions concerning the future prophetic role of the Roman Catholic Church. Even the “Catechism of the Catholic Church” approved by the Church and promulgated by Pope John Paul II (released in English in 1994, the first catechism in more than four hundred years), which draws on the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, traditions, teachings, and the lives of the saints, states under the section The Church’s Ultimate Trial:

675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the mystery of iniquity in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the Truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in the place of God and his Messiah who has come in the flesh.

Possibly at the center of this prophecy and a “Vatican cover-up” of the complete vision of Fatima (and related prophecies) is a second and potentially more powerful papal contender for the role of Petrus Romanus or “Peter the Roman”—Cardinal Tarcisio Pietro (Peter) Bertone, who was born in Romano (the Roman) Canavese (“Peter the Roman”). Cardinal Bertone is second in command at the Vatican.

Following the election of America’s first black president Barak Obama, analysts around the world began speculating that perhaps Rome would follow suit and roll out the red carpet for a black pope, the first in fifteen hundred years. Cardinal Francis Arinze, whom Ronald L. Conte Jr. believes will be the next pope and fulfill “The Prophecy of the Popes” by taking the name Pius XIII, is also a black man, an Igbo Nigerian considered papabile since before the 2005 conclave that elected Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI). “The election of Barack Obama as the first African-American US President could pave the way for the election of [a] black Pope, according to a leading black American Catholic,” wrote the Times Online in 2008.

The Christians Foretell of the Army of al-Mahdi

As I have been researching for a possible up-coming book (I really haven’t decided quite yet) I have uncovered an an interesting prophecy from the Christian bible which bears a striking resemblance to the Islamic teaching about the al-Mahdi’s Army of the Black Flags.

But Before I begin I must state that prophecy is not confined to the prophets of Israel alone, but can be seen in many of the ancient cultures. Many ancient cultures exhibit deep profound wisdom. This also true of the Christian tradition, though I personally am not a Christian.

However, the prophecies contained in the Hebrew Bible are stand above the prophecy and wisdom of the nations, and have shown themselves to be accurate in all their details. A Jewish proverb states:

“If a person tells you that there is wisdom among the nations, believe him, as it says in Obadiah, “I will destroy the wise ones from Edom and the intelligence from Mount Esau.” If one says that there is Torah among the nations, believe him not.”

The Torah text, which has been hand written and passed down in an unbroken chain of transmission from the time of Moshe to this very day.  It’s veracity has been established time and time again when scoffers sought to disprove it as a fabrication of fables and stories.  Each time the Tanakh has been challenged, evidence has come forth to repudiate the claims of supposed men and women of science and re-establish itself as the exclusive word of the Creator.

The Torah reminds us that if a prophet foretells of an event that comes to pass but tries to convinces you to follow after other gods [including practice of their ways, customs or traditions], you are not to heed that prophet but Israel was to put him to death (Deuteronomy 13).

This tells us that even idolators can even possess the prophetic gift and that the foretelling and fulfillment of a prophecy does not make you a spokesman for GOD. Many people today believe that some one who heals or predicts the future must be sent from HaShem, but as you can see that idea has no basis in the Word of HaShem and those who follow such false prophets are fools.

The Muhajadeen of the End of Days

The Apocalypse foretells of battles and wars of immense proportions.  In the 14th chapter we find that a future siege on Jerusalem would case a bloodbath 200 miles long with blood and bodies piled up as high as a horses bridle.  Years ago this seemed far-fetched and boggled the mind. The 9th chapter informs us of an army of astronomical proportions which originates from the Euphrates River.

There was a time when Christian scholars did not believe that the immense size of this army was a literal number of 200 million.  This was due in fact to the reality that at the time the prophecy was made there were not even 200 million people living on earth let alone an army of this size.

“…one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million…”

  That is no longer a problem.  The earth’s population is reaching 7 billion and it is estimated that of that number 1.5 billion are Muslims.  It is currently estimated of these, 10 – 15% are radicalized.  add to this the number of forced conversions throughout the world during the End of Days and 200 million is quite achievable.

I believe this army is the dreaded Army of Black Flags spoken of in the Islamic literature.  This army will come forth from Khorusan and march on Jerusalem under the flag of Jihad.  Khorusan as we shall see is the place of ancient Magog.

Muhammad said: “If you see the black flags coming from Khurasan, join that army, even if you have to crawl over ice, for that is the army of the Imam al-Mahdi and no one can stop that army until it reaches Jerusalem.”

There is view-point that the armed Islamic resistance that is resisting occupation in Afghanistan (aka the Taliban) constitute the emerging army from Khorasan that will eventually ‘liberate’ the Holy Land. They are called the Abdal who will give the Bai’ah or pledge of allegiance to Imam al-Mahdi in Makkah (Mecca).

Magog is mentioned in a prophecy about Gog and Magog War that is in the book of Ezekiel. Although most of the biblical prophets gave prophecies about this war, only the book of Ezekiel uses these names Gog and Magog:

And the word of HaShem came to me to say: Son of Adam, face yourself in the direction of Gog, Land of the Magog, main president of Meshech and Tuval, and prophesy on him. And you shall say: So said HaShem G-d, I am coming to you, Gog, main president of Meshech and Tuval.

And I shall send fire in Magog… and they shall know that I am HaShem.

There is much confusion in identifying where Magog is.  We believe Christianity is blind-sided by their own theology and because of their misplaced distrust in Judaism. Our Sages who penned the Mishna, the Midrash and the Talmud tell us who is Magog, and have given us names as clues.

The name Magog is mentioned two other times in the Hebrew Bible, besides the two we just looked at in Ezekiel.

The sons of Yefet: Gomer and Magog and Maday and Yavan and Tuval and Meshech and Tiras.

Magog was the name of the son of Jephet the grandson of Noah, and the people of Magog were his descendants, and were named Magog after him. According to our Sages, most of the people’s in the list in Ezekiel stem from the line of Yefet.

Our Sages interpreted in a few places the names of these peoples. The Babylonian Talmud in tractate Yoma identifies the names of the settlements mentioned in the Tanakh this way:

“Magog is Kandia” -Babylonian Talmud, tractate Yoma 10A

“…Magog (is) Gitya…” Jerusalemite Talmud

According to Midrash Bereshit Rabba.  Magog is Girmanya.

Rabbi Yonathan Ben Uziel who translated the Tanakh to Aramic also interprets the name of Magog as Germania.

Interestingly, when Yonathan Ben Uziel translated the prophecy of Gog and Magog , he refrained from translating the names using only the Hebrew names (Magog, Meshech, Tuval). However in Ezekiel 38:6 he changed his method and translated Magog as the “state of Germamia.

The oldest Jewish interpretation to “Magog”, other than our Sages’, is by Josephus Flavius, AKA Yosef Ben Matityahyu and Yosef Ben Guryon. In Antiquities of the Jews, Josephus also writes how the peoples emerged from Noah and his descendants, and so he writes:

Magog founded those that from him were named Magogites, but who are by the Greeks called Scythians.

Scholars generally regard the Scythians as Iranian nomadic peoples, speaking an Iranian language. Sistan, the name for the Persian language, comes from the Old Persian Sakastana, meaning “Land of the Sakas”. The Sakas are considered to be a branch of Scythians by most scholars. Saka is the usual Persian term, while Scythian is a Greek term.

The Scythians first appear in Assyrian annals as Ishkuzai, reported as pouring in from the north some time around 700 BCE and settling in Ascania and modern Azerbaijan as far as to the southeast of Lake Urmia. The Scythian tribes mentioned in the Greek sources resided in the steppe between the Dnieper and Don rivers.

Now even if Josephus said that the Magogites tribes are the Scythian tribes, it not much help in establishing their land of origin the land of Magog.

Our Sages, differing from Josephus, interpreted the names of the original lands of each descendant that were settled after the biblical Flood and the land that was initially occupied by the Magogites – land of Magog – should probably be the origin state of the Scythian tribes.

Rabbi Yehi’el Tzvi Hirshenzon’s book Seven Wisdoms (1883) devoted  part of his book to the locations of Noah’s descendants’ lands when they began their settlement, according to the words of our Sages:

“On Germamia”:

Their intention was the land of Kermania, south east of Babylon, and you can find it in the map of the Greek Rulers, in the south of Kermania Desert (which is called now in the new map Die Zaltz Wiste Fon Kermaan, and the main city until today is called Kerman), to the east of the tongue of the Persian Sea….”

And in Midrash Rabba and Yehonathan Ben Uziel and Translation of Rav Yosef it’s called actually “Germania” (and Herodotus, the Greek writer also calls the lands as Germania of Persia: “Persicus Germanus”, and don’t mix this Germania with the European Germania (Deutschland), because that one was called in the Talmud Edom’s Germania to separate it from this Germania).

And as it’s seen, this land in the old times was extended until the Indus River, and included within it the land that is called today Baludshistan… and it will also border in the northeast with the Himalaya mountains and Indikush mountains, and Tzongling mountains are extension to Indikush mountains, but they got their eastern name from the inhabitants of China there.

…and in the Babylonian Talmud Magog is Kandia, is a copier mistake, as already mentioned by the author of Tevu’ot HaAretz, because Kandia is a newer name that was given after the Talmud to the island Creta or Telechine. But the mistake should be corrected to Kidya, and this is Gytia as mentioned above.

The land that our Sages called Germania is a Persian land in the area of the Persian Gulf, that swallows an area called Baludshistan, and that land is bordering in the east with the Indus River, and in the north with the Himalayas. The region named Baluchistan is actually divided today between three countries: Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In western Pakistan there’s also a province names Baluchistan, next to the Iranian Baluchistan.

In today’s Iran there is a big province called Kerman, with population of over two million people. The capital of the province is also called by this name, and today more than 400,000 people live there. This province, Kerman, that was probably the original land of Magog, includes many archaeological cities, that their timings matches more or less the period of the end of The Biblical Flood.

As written above, our Sages used two different names alternatively to describe Magog’s land. The first one was versions of the name Germania, and we understood now where it is, while the second name is versions of then name Gytia. In the time of ancient Persia, the area known as Baluchistan was in the 6th century BCE as SattaGydia or SattaKydia.

Based on the above information the actual location of the Land of Magog is the areas of Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.  These area’s are a hotbed of radicalized jihadists who have been a problem for the two largest superpowers – Russia and the United States.

This area is also known in Islamic sources as Khourusan, the place where the al-Mahdi’s Army of the Black flags marches from.  We believe that Christian prophetic tradition identifies this army as the Kings of the East:

“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates and it’s water was dried up so that the way of the Kings of the East might be prepared….to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”

According to the reference from Britannica 1997:

KHURASAN,. The historical region extended, along the north, from the Amu Darya(OxusRiver) westward to the Caspian Sea and, along the south, from the fringes of the central Iranian deserts eastward to central Afghanistan. Arab geographers even spoke of its extending to the boundaries of India.

This definition tells that the following area is included in the historical region of Ancient Khorasan.

·Northern Part of Iran ,

·Afghanistan,

·North Western Part of Pakistan

·Southern parts of Central Asian Turkish states like Turkmenistan andUzbekistan.

Part of the demographic make-up of the area of Khourusan is the Pashtun tribe of Afghanistan.  The Pashtun’s (also called Pathans) are a fierce nomadic people who some, including myself, believe are remnants of the so-called lost tribes of Israel.  Indeed they occupy the regions of Pakistan, Iran, India and Kashmir.

The Pashtun Tribe of Afghanistan remains as a strong, warlike tribe, that has remained untamed throughout history. They are the only tribe that has not been subjugated to major imperial forces of history, including Soviet Russia and the United States today. These ancient Israelites have now become, as Bilal Khan wrote:

“The only group (Pashtun Tribes of Afghanistan) that is warlike, undefeated and untamed throughout the course of history, staunch in religious fervor, filled with honor and pride and is unforgiving of its enemy; one that will fight its enemy until one of them is dead.”

The Pathani tribesmen, the largest tribe of the Afghani people, declare that they are descended from the tribes of Israel and call themselves Bani-Israel. Rabbi Avraham HaKohen, (of the Jewish community in the Afghani city of Harath) recounts hearing the Afghani king Habib Allah Han proclaim, “I am from the Tribe of Benjamin.”

Other compelling indicators are the clan names names of the Afghani tribe are Israelite in origin:  Ghaghi tribesmen claim their name is from derived from Gad the son of Jacob. Others include: Rabbani (Reuben); Levoni (Levi); Ephriti (Ephraim); Yusuf Si (Joseph). And Jewish names such as Israel are found among many Pathani.

The Pashtuns while practicing a form of Islam, when asked, say they are not Muslims and follow a religious code called Pashtanwalli, a very strict type of ‘Mosaic law’ combined with Islamic customs.

As for Jewish customs, the Pathani do not shave thier peot or sidelocks in accordance with the Torah – Don’t shave the sides of your head . They rest on the Shabbat, and even light candles on Friday evenings.

Who is the Beast that He should be Worshipped?

And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.  I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;  they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, ” Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?”

The question is rhetorical.  We must recognize that the Christian religion began as a sectarian offshoot of Judaism and it’s primary leadership were Jew’s who were brought up in 2nd Temple Judaism.  In fact there was no Pauline Christianity inside of the Holy Land prior to the second century.  The point I’m making is that the person who wrote the book of Revelation would have used the same images and symbols that the book of Daniel employs including Jewish interpretations.

It is clear that the beast of Revelation 13 is the fourth beast of Daniels vision, but in a composite form which includes the other three empires and subsequent Jewish exiles.  Therefore the beast of Revelation is not a person but an empire, which we believe is a resurrected Islamic Khalifah.  This is the interpretation based on Daniel.

The problem we are immediately faced with is the perception that the beast is worshipped and therefore it must be a person.  That perception is a false one reinforced by our modern understanding of spiritual things. ‘Worship’ is a modern concept, not a Jewish one.  When the modern person thinks of worship, most will conjure up a definition based on belief in a person.  Worship is given to one you believe in or have faith in.

Biblically, this definition is incomplete at best.  If you were to take a survey of the biblical material, you would soon discover that the words often translated as ‘worship’ in reality reflect an ancient practice known as prostration.  During the biblical period, Jews prayed on their knees and on their faces.  This practice reflected the idea of obeisance.  The worshipper prostrated himself as an act of submission to honor God.

With this ancient understanding we are better able to grasp what the passage is really saying:

And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast [Islamic Empire];  they prostrated themselves in submission to the dragon [Allah]because he gave his authority to the beast [Islamic Khalifah]; and they submitted to the beast [Islamic khalifah], saying, ” Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?
