The Mark of the Beast

//The Mark of the Beast

The April 1st, 2004, Watchtower Magazine carried an article on the meaning of Revelation’s mysterious 666 – the name and mark of the wild beast. Under the subheading on page four, the Watchtower asks the rhetorical question: “Do you enjoy solving a mystery?” Notably, that statement implies that the Watchtower Society has already solved the mystery. But have they really?

In keeping with the apostolic exhortation: “Do not believe every inspired expression, but test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God,” we do well to take a closer look at this important topic. The Watchtower rightly dispels the Fundamentalist’s simplistic notion that the mark of the beast is some sort of implanted microchip. But the article leaves the reader with the impression that everyone who now supports the present political system in any way has already been invisibly stamped with the symbolic 666. For example, on page six the Watchtower states: “How important, therefore, that we avoid having the deadly mark of the beast.” For a certainty, this is not “new light” for Jehovah’s Witnesses. As far back as 1953 the Watchtower Society has taught this. Here is a quote from the February 1st edition:

“Also that today is a day of judgment and that everyone is receiving a mark, either the mark of the beast or the mark that Jehovah’s servants place on those who sigh and cry for the abominations they see committed in the land. You individually cannot escape being marked. You cannot avoid having to make a decision.”

If, in 1953, people could not avoid getting the mark of doom, what do Jehovah’s Witnesses believe as regards when people actually first began receiving the 666 mark of the beast? The Watchtower teaches that the image of the beast was originally manifested with the creation of the League of Nations in 1919, and presumably everyone since then who has not become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses (International Bible Students before 1931) has already received the mark.

Supposedly, too, the creation of the United Nations in the aftermath of WWII and the subsequent disbanding of the League of Nations was the fulfillment of the emergence of the scarlet-colored beast from the abyss, as portrayed in the 17th chapter of Revelation. But the establishment of the UN is largely an irrelevant development since Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the marking has been ongoing since 1919!

Bluntly, the teaching of the Watchtower Society on this issue is patently absurd. Let the reader be reminded that those who receive the mark of the beast are doomed to everlasting death. That is what it means not to have their names written in the book of life, as Revelation states regarding those who worship the revived beast from the abyss: “And all those who dwell on the earth will worship it; the name of not one of them stands written in the scroll of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered, from the founding of the world.” (Revelation 13:8 & Revelation 17:8)

(The Watchtower erroneously attributes two separate identities to the seven-headed wild beast in the 13th chapter of Revelation and the scarlet beast in the 17th chapter. Even though the beast in the 11th chapter of Revelation is said to also emerge from the abyss – just as does the scarlet-colored beast – the Watchtower attaches no significance to it. Reasonably, though, the death-stroke upon the head of the beast is also depicted in the symbolism of the Apocalypse as the entire beast going into a deathlike state, symbolized by its going into the abyss. Likewise, the emergence of the beast from the abyss parallels the miraculous recovery of the beast’s slaughtered head. The two-horned, lamblike beast that arises from the earth also depicts the beast coming from the abyss, as if rising up from Sheol – from the depths of the earth. The scarlet color of the beast from the abyss characterizes the beast after its recovery from death and reflects the intense anger of the satanic, fiery-colored, seven-headed dragon that is cast down to earth, resulting in the death of the head of the earthly beast.)

The absurdity of the Watchtower’s teaching ought to be apparent in view of the fact that many of Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves – at least before their having become Jehovah’s Witnesses – were active supporters of the political system, even fighting the bloody wars of the militaristic nations. But there is no indication in the Scriptures that those who receive the “deadly mark” can thereafter repent so that the mark is removed from them. Otherwise, what is the point of the symbolic marking if it does not permanently fix a person’s destiny? And if persons have already been marked, and hence, doomed to eternal death, what would be the point of preaching the good news of salvation to the damned?

But how reasonable is it that the billions of people who have lived and died since 1919 have already been judged unworthy of a resurrection due to their presumed admiration of a largely irrelevant and long-since defunct organization like the League of Nations? It is not reasonable at all. In fact, it even contradicts other Watchtower teachings. What teachings specifically? In 1995 the Society revised their understanding of when it is that the illustration of the separating of the sheep and the goats takes place, so that Jehovah’s Witnesses now expect the sheep and the goat-like individuals to be separated during the tribulation. But if that is the case, if the goats are yet to be judged worthy of everlasting cutting off based upon their failure to support Christ’s brothers during their trials, then it ought to be obvious – at least to thinking persons – neither has the world already been doomed due to their worship of the wild beast.

WHEN IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

As one might at this point discern, the more relevant question for Jehovah’s Witnesses to consider is not ‘what is the mark of the beast?’ – It is ‘When is the mark of the beast?’ The 13th chapter of Revelation pinpoints a specific development that gives rise to the 666 mark of the beast. What is it?

According to God’s prophetic word one of the heads of the seven-headed wild beast suffers a calamitous death-stroke and then revives. It is after that near-death experience that the two-horned Anglo-American beast conjures up an image of the seven-headed beast and breathes life into it so that the image fully comes to life and begins to speak – demanding the worship of every person on earth upon pain of death.

Apparently, the image will become manifest in the form of a world government, one capable of controlling earth’s affairs to the extent that no one will be able to buy or sell without placating the political image in some way that would compromise a Christian’s stand. Ostensibly, at this point the United Nations Organization is the only institution capable of exerting control to that extent.

However, at the present moment the UN has no such life-and-death powers and there is no basis for believing that the image merely inflicts a figurative death upon those who refuse its mark, as the Watchtower has led Jehovah’s Witnesses to believe.

Of course, according to Watchtower interpretations, the seven-headed beast suffered a death-stroke as a result of the First World War. Realistically, though, as horrendous as that Great War was and the indisputable fact that it forever altered the course of history notwithstanding, there is simply no historical basis in reality for the notion that the Anglo-American duo experienced anything even remotely analogous to the prophesied sword-stroke. (The Bethel writing staff ought to be reminded of the fact that the United States and Great Britain were victorious in both world wars.) Going into the First World War the United States was the world’s single greatest industrial power. And it emerged from that war as the greatest political and military power on earth as well. There was no political instability in the United States as a result of Europe’s Great War. The government did not totter on the brink. If so, where are the historical facts to document such a thing?

The British Empire also emerged from the Great War intact. Granted, the populations and institutions of Europe were staggered, momentarily. Britain lost nearly a half-million men – about the same number killed in the American Civil War of 1860-64. But even the nations impacted most directly by the war did not experience political collapse – not even the vanquished, Germany. True, Czarist Russia was overthrown by Bolshevism and the Ottoman and Austria-Hungarian empires were dissolved, but so what?

The head of the beast is just that, the leading nations of the political system. According to history and the Society’s own writings, in 1914 the British Empire and the United States remained the most powerful nations on the planet. It is not a matter of disbelief in the so-called “faithful slave.” The “inspired expressions” of prophetic interpretation proffered by the Watchtower Society just simply do not pass the test of authenticity.

The ramifications of their error should not be minimized. In view of the fact that the Anglo-American dual world power and all nations still exercise a large measure of sovereignty and independence, thinking persons are forced to conclude that the death-stroke upon the head of the wild beast is yet to occur.

By the forward-shining light of Jehovah’s word, we are enabled to peer beyond the now-looming collapse of the present Anglo-American dominated system of things, to envision the revival of the beast in the form of a totalitarian, absolutist form of world government, which will do away with all vestiges of democracy and freedom. After all, the Babylonian king, who typifies the eighth king, was called “the tyrant of the nations.”

Such an earth-shaking development will run concurrent with the actual establishment of Jehovah’s kingdom, making the revived beast a competing government with Christ. That is why the supporters of the beast will be marked as worthy of eternal death because they will out-rightly reject Christ as their ruler in favor of a human government. (Admittedly, although the Watchtower’s teaching regarding the timing of the administration of the mark of the beast is ludicrous, their error is because of their ardent attachment to the 1914 doctrine of the belief in the invisible presence of Christ. In that respect, they resemble the man/men depicted in the prophecy of Isaiah (28:20) who is trying to find his repose upon a couch that is too short with a bed sheet that is too narrow to cover himself with completely. So, no matter how authoritatively the Governing Body may assert that Christ has been invisibly present since 1914 and how God’s judgments have supposedly already been accomplished, they simply cannot tie all the loose ends together into a cohesive explanation of prophecy and are thus stuck with numerous discomforting absurdities, such as presented here.)

HOW MAY DEATH STROKE COME ABOUT?

Presently, the global financial system is poised to disintegrate in the near term. As an indication of the trouble bubbling beneath the surface of the much-ballyhooed “recovery,” recently the wealthy clients of the Royal Bank of Scotland were warned via newsletter to prepare for a monster money printing operation by the Federal Reserve in response to the next phase of the financial crisis. Clients were urged to “think the unthinkable.”

Indeed, the financial crisis that erupted two years ago, which, at its height reportedly came within less than 48 hours of toppling the entire London/Wall Street global system, has only temporarily been papered over by the most extraordinary means – not excluding outright fraud and the massive plundering of the taxpayer. But the total unraveling of the gargantuan debt and quadrillions derivatives pyramid is inevitable.

Concurrently, the Anglo-American-Zionist powers, while calling for a comprehensive peace in the Middle East, are preparing to launch nuclear war, not just against Iran, but apparently with the intent of a initiating a pre-emptive strike against Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilities as well. The United States now maintains over 800 military bases, camps and stations around the world, many in nations that were formerly part of the Soviet Union – forming an arc of encirclement around Russia and to a lesser extent China.

The goal is an Anglo/European-controlled world government. Considering both its vast nuclear and conventional arsenals and sophisticated weapons delivery systems the American military is, for the most part – invincible. It is capable of delivering withering devastation upon multiple nations simultaneously in any corner of the globe within a couple of hours of receiving the command to do so.

However, politically and economically the U.S. is very fragile and subject to collapse. In fact, the physical economy of the world’s greatest nation is now locked in a death spiral of accelerating collapse; as states cut their budgets, reducing their tax base, thereby requiring further budget cuts, further shrinking the tax base, their credit worthiness is reduced, borrowing costs are raised, provoking another round of budget reductions, further collapsing the state’s tax base, and on and on until total collapse is accomplished.

But the destruction of the social structure and the Republic will not necessarily decapitate the military beast. As already stated, the death-stroke upon the head of Satan’s beastly political system will bring about the end of the democratic, nation-state arrangement and wipe out the capitalist system. But from the ashes of catastrophe will arise a form of global communism, presumably administered by the UN; policed predominately by the incontestable military power of the former U.S.; dominated by the same clique of private financial interests, which will by then own the means of life – having left the once-wealthy moneyed and working class suckers holding worthless paper, destroyed through the sudden ignition of a hyperinflationary firestorm created by a handful of bankers – so that no one will be able to buy or sell outside of their system or contest the supremacy of the satanically controlled super-state.

Indicative of the incontestable power the eighth king will ultimately wield, the 18th chapter of Revelation says regarding the kings who will eventually concede their power to the last king: “And the kings of the earth who committed fornication with her and lived in shameless luxury will weep and beat themselves in grief over her, when they look at the smoke from the burning of her, while they stand at a distance because of their fear of her torment and say, ‘Too bad, too bad, you great city, Babylon you strong city, because in one hour your judgment has arrived!’”

Reasoning on the verse above, if all the kings of the earth will tremble in fear at the power of the eighth king, does that not indicate that the eighth king will have been empowered as the sole military power on earth? That being the case, Jehovah’s Witnesses ought not any longer imagine that the League of Nations and the present-day United Nations were/are the last kingdom of prophecy or that the administering of the mark of the beast is already underway. The collapse of the mighty Anglo-American kingdom along with the global financial system appears to be imminent! The coming crash will do what seemingly no earthly power can do – it will shatter the 1914 parousia delusion that presently grips Jehovah’s Witnesses. __________________________________________________

SOLVING A MYSTERY

 According to the Watchtower, the 666 simply means human imperfection as expressed through government. However, let it be noted that much of Revelation draws from the prophecy of Daniel. Consider the fact that the composite beast of the 13th chapter of Revelation is composed of aspects of the individual beasts presented in the eighth chapter of Daniel. Also, the chronology connected with the beast of Revelation and the 42 months allotted it to wage war against the sons of the kingdom finds a parallel in Daniel as well. Likewise, the mandatory worship of the image of the beast ought to call to mind the historical account in the 3rd chapter of Daniel, where Nebuchadnezzar set up a golden image on the Plains of Dura and ordered representatives from his entire empire to attend the inaugural ceremony of the image. Anyone who refused to bow before the image was to be put to death.

Not coincidentally, the towering image measured 60 cubits by six cubits. The 666, being “a man’s number,” seems intended to call attention to the man, Nebuchadnezzar. So, the 666 of Revelation symbolizes the decisive situation, when, during the last hour, the beast will attempt to coerce all mankind – especially Jehovah’s anointed witnesses – to deny their faith in God. Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, those who are sealed with the name of Jehovah and Christ on their foreheads will join their Lord in the fiery furnace of martyrdom for their staunch refusal to worship the image of the beast during the last hour.

    Actually, I totally agree that the beast received the death stroke during WWI. It was the Ottoman Empire that collapsed at that time! The revived Caliphate today is the 8th beast, the beast whose deadly wound was healed, that will trample down the whole Earth and break it in pieces. I recommend reading God’s War on Terror by Walid Shoebat. Great book. Also, check out my blogs:

    • Richard Long

      I’m not going to debate you here. I am simply registering my disagreement with your premise.

    • That is actually more ridiculous than the Watchtower’s interpretation, which hardly even seems possible.

    • The Penitent Man Shall Pass

      Here’s the breakdown. The 4th beast of Daniel 7 could not have been the Roman Empire, but was in fact the Islamic Empire:

      Daniel 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
      Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

      The revived Caliphate today (or rather the one that conquers it, as per Islamic end times prophecy) will be the 5th beast whose deadly wound was healed, in Revelation 13:

      3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

      This is the same as the 7th and 8th beast of Revelation 17:

      9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
      10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
      11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

      The five kings that are fallen:
      Egypt
      Assyria
      Babylon
      Medo-Persia
      Greece

      The king that is (at the time of the writing):
      Rome

      The 7th and revived 8th king that had not yet come:
      Islam, and then revived Islam.

      • Obviously, you haven’t the slightest clue how the world works. First, the only Islamic nation with nuclear weapons is Pakistan. It is has only been allowed to have such because it is a member of the British Commonwealth, and was in fact split off from India as a geo-political ploy to undermine India. The so-called rise of Islam is not Islam at all, but is radical Islam, also called Wahhabism, which has been nurtured by the British for the past century and a half and is now being deployed by London to overturn moderate nations in the Middle East and to create destablizations throughout Europe. The so-called war on Islamic terror is an elaborate hoax, concocted by the lords of London. They create, train, deploy and fund their own enemies and only pretend to fight against them. If that were not true the USA and Russia could wipe out ISIS in a couple of weeks, tops.

        • The Raven
        • The Penitent Man Shall Pass

          I’ve been researching Islam for quite a while, and I have to say that radical Islam, is true Islam. That’s what Muhammad taught, and what Muhammad did. He was cutting off Jews’ and Christians’ heads himself. He was leading caravan raids. He was a terrorist. Fortunately, there are a lot of Muslims out there that really have no clue about this, and I’m not sure their reaction if they ever read the biography of Muhammad.

          • There is no question that Satan inspired Muhammad to start up a new religion as a means of preventing the spread of Christianity, even the corrupt form of Christianity that then existed. But for centuries Christians and Muslims have lived together in peace, even in spite of the atrocities of centuries past, like the crusades orchestrated by the popes of the holy Roman Empire.

            After the collapse of the USSR the Anglo Empire realized it would need a new enemy. Islam was chosen for a number of reasons. Samuel Huntington was commissioned to write his Clash of Civilizations, which has been a blueprint for the developing war between the West and Islam. Interestingly, the Muslim nations in the Middle East that were most tolerant of Christians were Iraq, Syria and Libya. It is surely no coincidence that they all three now lay in ruins and are a festering breeding ground for radical terrorists. And now the nation-wreckers are deploying millions of refugees to flood into Europe to create chaos and destabilize governments to keep them under the thumb of Brussels.

            Keep in mind that many of the terrorists have had family members killed by the Empire, so it is not so much about religion as deep-seated animosity over the atrocities committed against them by the Anglo beast.

            Alliance of Convenience: Israel Supports Syria’s ISIS Terror Group
            By Stephen Lendman
            http://www.globalresearch.ca/alliance-of-convenience-israel-supports-syrias-isis-terror-group/5587203
            Washington created and supports ISIS, along with other anti-government terrorists in Syria and elsewhere.
            NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other regional rogue states supply them with weapons and other material support.
            So does Israel. In June 2015, the Times of Israel quoted former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon, saying
            “we’ve assisted (anti-government terrorist groups in Syria on) two conditions. That they don’t get too close to (Israel’s) border, and…don’t touch the Druze.”
            Israel provides hospital treatment for hundreds, maybe thousands, of terrorist fighters, calling it “humanitarian assistance,” according to Ya’alon, adding it’s “not in their interest” to publicize Israeli aid – including weapons and munitions supplied, along with Israeli air strikes, he failed to explain.
            On April 24, FARS News reported increased US/UK/Israeli aid to al-Nusra terrorists – aiming “to create an autonomous region in Southern Syria, but the plan is confronted by Iran and Russia’s intensified intelligence and military operations.”
            At the same time, Washington supports Kurdish fighters and terrorist groups in northern Syria. “Israel is (providing) logistical, intelligence and medical support for terrorist groups, and the Israel-West-Jordan operations room is supervising (their) activities.”
            Russia, Damascus and Tehran oppose the establishment of autonomous regions in southern and northern Syria, supporting the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
            On April 24, the American Herald Tribune said
            “Ya’alon has admitted to a tacit (Israeli) alliance with ISIS.”
            On Israeli television, he said
            “within Syria there are many factions: the regime, Iran, the Russians, and even al-Qaeda and ISIS.”
            “In such circumstances, one must develop a responsible, carefully-balanced policy by which you protect your own interests on the one hand, and on the other hand you don’t intervene.”
            “Because if Israel does intervene on behalf of one side, it will serve the interests of the other; which is why we’ve established red lines.”
            “Anyone who violates our sovereignty will immediately feel the full weight of our power. On most occasions, firing comes from regions under the control of the regime.”
            “But once the firing came from ISIS positions, and it immediately apologized.”
            Israel has a longstanding alliance of convenience with regional terrorist groups and rogue states – including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Gulf states, Jordan and Egypt.
            In December 2014, The Jerusalem Post said a
            “UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) (report) reveals that Israel has been working closely with Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights and have kept close contact over the past 18 months. The report was submitted to the UN Security Council at the beginning of the month.”
            Fact: All so-called anti-Assad rebel groups are terrorists. No moderates exist. All commit gruesome atrocities, including CW attacks – toxins supplied by Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
            Fact: Pentagon contractors train terrorists in use of CWs. They make some on their own.
            Western media suppress what’s most important to know about ongoing war in Syria. The country was invaded. Conflict isn’t civil. All anti-government forces are terrorists. No moderate rebels exist.
            Washington, Israel and their rogue allies want regime change, Syrian sovereignty destroyed. Peace talks since 2012 accomplished nothing because Washington and Israel want another imperial trophy, Iran isolated ahead of plans to oust its government.
            Russia is the only major power standing in the way of achieving these disturbing objectives. Putin is on the right side of history, resisting imperial lawlessness.

            Since Israel, a Jewish state and members of NATO are actively supporting and arming these Wahhabi terrorists it should tell you to set your sights a little higher than the convenient enemy. Here’s more on the subject from a clearer perspective without the shading and spin of the media:

            • Richard Long

              You probably already know this, but it bears mentioning. Why is Russia involved in Syria at all, and why can one expect they will absolutely under no condition back down? Syria hosts Russia’s only access to the Med. IMO, The empire has calculated that this specific provocation will be the most effective flash point for global war. Jehovah save these poor pawns in the Syrian population!

            • The Raven

              Not too sure about that. There are several potential hotspots and also an isolated event that blindsides everyone. The big one may be something altogether different than what everyone’s expecting.

            • Richard Long

              Of course I’m projecting a minimally informed expectation, but I’m trying to convey the empire wants war at all costs and is pushing every sore spot it can to provoke Russia into firing first, Syria being one of the more dangerously festering . The “flash”may occur in Syria and the “bang” in Ukraine, but the goal is likely mushroom clouds on every continent .

            • The Raven

              Maybe. But, yes they want population reduced to a manageable level and the more traumatized they are the easier it will be to control them.

    • The Raven

      Well, I went to your site and looked at your comments on other blogs and I have to say, you are completely off the rails. Not only that but you are promoting violence against anyone who YOU think is a witch. Who the hell appointed YOU judge? You fancy yourself a saint? Really? It’s people like you who goad gullible others into outrageous acts of terrorism and murder based on scatterbrained views and you’re doing it from the safety of being out of range in China! You’re nothing but a provocateur. I’m not even going to try to wade through that incoherent mess you promote. I just want others to see what you are. In fact, I think you cut your own throat.

      For those who are curious about this fellow take a look through his comments at what he is preaching:

      https://disqus.com/by/ObamaLaForge/

      “You know what. It’s time. It’s time for some saints. Declare yourself a saint, people. What do saints do? Burn witches, heretics, and idolaters, and their idolatry. Smash graven images. Are Christians under the impression they just have to take this? The Law of Moses STANDS.”

      “The answers are here, my man! We need to start burning witches and heretics!”

      “Become a saint. Saints burn witches and heretics and smash idolatry. Maybe start with the smashing of idolatry. Also, spread the word. It’s time for a real witch hunt!
      Saints of the Apocalypse!”

      • Burt Reynolds

        Oh dear, Raven. You were only telling me off recently for my abruptness with Francis! Believe it or not, the last witch trial in England was only about 20 years ago. Someone from the Isle of Wight I believe. Of course we gave up burning witches in the 1700s here, when the first Health and Safety regulations came in. I found Mr. Penitent’s article quite fascinating, though as you are aware, the scripture at Daniel 17, refers to the smelting works in Lancashire England, where they produced copper and iron and brass nails by the million. During the early 1800s it was managed by the 4th Earle Pumblechook Beastie, ( from Edinburgh, Scotland. He was related to Rabbie Burns, the poet, hence the name Beastie) otherwise known, of course, as the 4th Beast as Mr Penitent rightly points out. The foundry was demolished in April 1871, and as the prophesy said, was ‘braked in pieces’ and along with it, the 7slag heaps that Mr. Penitent mistook for the seven mountains. ‘The Caliphate’ was the local public house ( really nice beer there) and used to serve the foundry workers. It’s true that the pub was so successful that was indeed patched up from its wounds – it’s chimney fell through the roof in 1961, and it it certainly remains a wonder today as Mr Penitent points out, for its beer and scotch eggs.

        Although Mr. Penitent got most of his prophesy correct, I agree with you that he is wrong to accuse George Bush as being the eighth wonder of the world, when plainly, as you pointed out, it was Abraham Lincoln who was the last emperor of Rome. I hope this clarifies Mr Penitent’s post.

          Hahahaha! I got a really good laugh out of that! I don’t recall telling anyone off about Francis. I remember trying to be civil with him until he went off the deep end and well, the rest is history. At least he made a somewhat cohesive argument and tended to stay within certain parameters. This fellow does not even try!
          Nor is this one ignorant at all. He commented on an article which clearly spells it out. He is not interested in discussing these matters within scripture. He is interested in promoting his own brand of BS. Posting his sites was an open invitation for examination and I meant what I said about him.
          His views are nothing but opinion extrapolated from Jewish and Islamic opinion and then he compounds these lies exponentially by trying to weave this together.
          It is utter nonsense. And dangerous nonsense at that for people who do not understand that everything he bases these views on is lies from those who hate Christ.
          Any similarities within these groups are inconsequential to the truth. The simple fact remains that they do not recognize Jehovah. Only one group on earth does.
          And to suggest burning witches or a return to the crusades is shear idiocy.

          Your comment and explanation of his “prophecies” is freakin solid gold, Burt!
          No one tops you for that! LOL!

          • Richard Long

            Sheer SATANIC idiocy, at that.

            • The Raven

              Yes indeed. People who promote this sort of thinking are easy prey for the devil and they all believe they are doing God’s will. We have thousands of years of awful history to show for it.
              Some folks will not live to learn the lesson coming upon the entire earth.

        You forgot to POST this in all caps!
        Because -THAT WAS EPIC & TRUE !!!!

        • The Raven

          What got me was how he commented right beneath an article written by Robert which clearly explained the truth in secular and scriptural terms:

          “Concurrently, the Anglo-American-Zionist powers, while calling for a comprehensive peace in the Middle East, are preparing to launch nuclear war, not just against Iran, but apparently with the intent of a initiating a pre-emptive strike against Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilities as well. The United States now maintains over 800 military bases, camps and stations around the world, many in nations that were formerly part of the Soviet Union – forming an arc of encirclement around Russia and to a lesser extent China.

          The goal is an Anglo/European-controlled world government. Considering both its vast nuclear and conventional arsenals and sophisticated weapons delivery systems the American military is, for the most part – invincible. It is capable of delivering withering devastation upon multiple nations simultaneously in any corner of the globe within a couple of hours of receiving the command to do so.”

          Any one can see this is the stark reality of our world. You don’t even have to believe in God to KNOW this. In light of THAT truth how anyone can even imagine a Muslim Caliphate is beyond stupid. Unless they have an agenda…Like whipping up hysteria over lies and then directing fools to attack convenient enemies.

          Much like our lying governments and media.

            I doubt whether he even knew what caliphate means. Even in England I suspect most would think it referred to an new ice cream on a stick. It reminds me of an English football fanatic that came back from a game in Europe, proudly displaying in big black letters across his back, a tattoo of the England Team…..EGGLAND, it read. (Probably executed by an astute Frenchman).

        Well, I thought witch burning was mandated before, but now I think we ought to obey the laws of the land, wherever we are. That’s also required. So, no witch burnings, if that be in your law books. My mistake. I never said I was perfect. I am an aspiring saint. However, witches do need to repent. This is serious stuff.

      • The Penitent Man Shall Pass

        And yeah, the laws of Moses don’t necessarily all stand today. Forgive me, for my enthusiasm, the Raven.

      • The Penitent Man Shall Pass

        I repent!

        • Daisy

          Wonderful news!
          Now repent somewhere else please…Goodbye

          • The Raven

            LOL!

      A lot of what you think are great secrets in the teachings of the Koran and Jewish mystics is nothing but exoteric junk to reel in people who allow themselves to be influenced by demons. The demons are never completely right. Why? Because they are the ones to make a prediction and then try to maneuver people into situations where they could be fulfilled. It’s hit or miss.
      The real secrets to power, the true esoteric matters are found at the highest levels of control; the banks, corporations, the military industrial complex and they constitute shadow government which rules from behind the facade of political figureheads. They are actively trying to foment a war which will lay waste to billions as part of their agenda to rule over a greatly reduced population. If you have looked at any of the articles Robert King has written concerning the end times, you would see that their goal is to wipe out all religion and be worshiped as gods. No Christendom, no Caliphate, no anything but them. Their tactics are as old as the world, divide and conquer and they will use anyone and everything to do that and then…they will dispose of them.
      You are parroting exactly what the elites and the media want you to say. They have been whipping up hysteria over jihadists after THEY started wars which destabilized the middle east. Their final solution is wholesale death.

      Problem Reaction Solution (Latin: Ordo ab Chao) is a mass mind control system. It is used to make changes to the law that the citizens would not accept otherwise.

      1. Create a problem
      Terrorism, financial crisis, etc.

      2. Manufacture a reaction
      Let the mainstream media only broadcast/print the side of the problem you want to show

      3. Provide a solution
      wars, corporate tax-cuts, welfare budget cuts, etc.

        I’m aware of the Synagogue of Satan, and the Freemasons, which are basically of the same cloth. They are also antichrist. Their messiah, the zionist messiah, comes first actually, according to my theory.
