The Disgusting Thing that Causes Desolation

King of the North Will Show No Regard…

QUESTION: Daniel 11:37 states:“He will show no regard for the God of his fathers.” Does that mean that Jehovah was the God of the forefathers of the King of North, because here it is mentioned with a capital “G” for God? Or, is it because the King of North is a group of world financiers who [...]

The Crash of the Euro

his is part two, a continuation of the article entitled “There Will Stand Up A King Fierce in Countenance.”

When Jesus walked the earth he revealed that Satan the Devil is the real ruler of the world. In fact, Satan himself boasted of that very fact when tempting Christ to worship him. The account of the matter is recorded in the fourth chapter of Luke:

“So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time; and the Devil said to him: ‘I will give you all this authority and the glory of them, because it has been delivered to me, and to whomever I wish I give it. You, therefore, if you do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours.’ In reply Jesus said to him: “It is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’””

Although, as the Devil said, all the kingdoms of the world have been delivered to him (temporarily), God has never abdicated his own throne.

That is evident from the occasions when Jehovah has intervened in human affairs; for example, when Cyrus overthrew Babylon and allowed the captive Jews to go free, which God had foretold two hundred-years in advance – before the Jews even went into captivity! Or when a thousand years before that Jehovah crushed Pharaoh and his army of crack charioteers under the surging waters of the Red Sea, achieving the same result of liberating a captive people.

Ultimately, because he is Almighty and Wise, God always accomplishes his purpose. There is nothing any human or demon can do to prevent it. God even foretells long in advance the things that will take place.

There Will Stand Up a Fierce-looking King

This article was prompted by a question from a reader.For more questions from readers see the Mailbag.

QUESTION: In Daniel chapter 8 it talks about a goat whose horn is broken and gives rise to 4 more horns. Who are those 4 horns? Also, does Daniel 8 describe a nuclear attack? I am hoping you can explain Daniel 8 and how it applies to today.

______________________________________________

ANSWER: Although the Watchtower Society has convinced the millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses under its authority that virtually every aspect of the prophecy (And all other prophecy for that matter) has already been fulfilled, the prophecy regarding the king fierce in countenance is actually of the utmost relevance as regards the immediate future.

Although I have written a fair amount on this topic over the past ten years, in view of the imminent, catastrophic, collapse of the Euro Zone monetary and political system, and the even more destructive measures that are sure to be taken to prevent the inevitable, it seems timely to revisit this amazing piece of God’s prophetic puzzle in this, and a subsequent article.

Daniel and the Parousia

After having gone into mourning for three weeks in response to  experiencing the jarring vision of the climatic great military service  between the two rival kings, Daniel had an astounding experience of the  utmost relevance for Jehovah’s Witnesses today.

As the aged prophet walked on the bank of the Tigris River with some companions, he suddenly was confronted with a supernatural sight. Daniel relates the extraterrestrial encounter this way:

I also proceeded to raise my eyes and see, and here was a certain man clothed in linen, with his hips girded with gold of Uphaz. And his body was like chrysolite, and his face like the appearance of lightning, and his eyes like fiery torches, and his arms and the place of his feet were like the sight of burnished copper, and the sound of his words was like the sound of a crowd. And I saw, I Daniel by myself, the appearance; but as for the men that happened to be with me, they did not see the appearance. However, there was a great trembling that fell upon them, so that they went running away in hiding themselves. And I—I was left remaining by myself, so that I saw this great appearance. And there was left remaining in me no power, and my own dignity became changed upon me to ruination, and I retained no power. And I began hearing the sound of his words; and while I was hearing the sound of his words, I myself also happened to be fast asleep upon my face, with my face to the earth.

Prior to this great appearance Daniel had a similar encounter with the angel Gabriel, which also left the prophet in a trembling, lifeless heap on the ground. But apparently, the second appearance was even more overwhelming than the first.

A Great Military Service

Since the emergence of America from British colonialism the progenitors of the aristocratic, imperial system, have intended to crush the emerging republican system of sovereign nations.

They have so far been only marginally successful.

In truth, both world wars of the past century were fomented to pit nations against one another in order to prevent their mutual cooperation and development. The same oligarchy that serves as Satan’s earthly throne is relentlessly pushing for one more world war. (King Edward VII – Evil Demiurge of the Triple Entente and WWI and Roosevelt Verses British Colonialism)

(The prophecies of Daniel depict the feet of the image as an unworkable fusion of iron and clay, symbolizing the oddly matched empire and republican systems manifested in the Anglo-America dyad today.  Recently, the Watchtower Society has even enlightened Jehovah's Witnesses on this matter - having previously taught the the iron and clay simply represented a "politically divided world." Also, the empire that descended from Rome is appropriately symbolized as an unusually ferocious beast that crushes and tramples everything.)

In the aftermath of the collapse of the colossal Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the end of London’s Cold War scheme to pit the victorious allies of WWII against each other, the drones of the Empress of London embarked on a bold plan for total world domination. But first the imperialists must gain control of the US political and military establishment to accomplish their plot, which has been an ongoing conspiracy for many years. From all appearances that scheme is now virtually complete. London even has access to the US nuclear trigger.
