ThereisaneagleovertheHouseoftheLord
InHosea8:14,Godspeaksapropheticwordtohispeople,Israel.
However,thiswordspeaksfarbeyondIsraeland,Ibelieve,encapsulatesthe
essenceofwhatGodhastosayabouttodaysChristianity.

AneagleisoverthehouseoftheLord.
Thepeoplehavebrokenmycovenantandrebelledagainstmylaw.
TheycryouttoGod;OourGod,weacknowledgeyou!
Theysetupkingswithoutmyconsentandchooseprinceswithoutmy

Inouranalysis,wehaveconcludedthatJesushasbeendeniedtorule
overhisownpeopleasKing,justasGodhasbeendeniedtoruleIsraelas

Lord,whois?TheprophecyofHosea(8:14)beginswithafascinating

whoisthechosenonetobecomethenextCesar.Thesignwasthataneagle

Nevertheless,theruleofChristovertheHouseofGodwasshortlived.

withthis:fromthemomentintimewhenGodsaidit,mankindhas120x50=

example,ifweweretodatethefloodatabout3,977BC(althoughthereisno
scientificconsensusonprettymuchanythingrelatedtotheflood),thiswould
meanthattheclockofmanwouldfinishtickingintheyear2023.

2)IsraelandJerusalemastheclockonGodswall

Jerusalemhasbecomeitscapital(eitherin1967or1980)andaglobalreturnof

years,basedonthestatementinMt1:17thattherewere42generations
betweenAbrahamtoChrist.Calculating2,160yearsfromAbrahamtoChrist,a

statementwouldindicatehistoriccircumstancesthatnoonewouldbeableto

WhatmanyBibleinterpretersseemtooverlookarethetoes.Thefeetarenot
thelastthingthatismentionedinthepropheticimagery,butthetoes(Dan
2:41.42).TheBibleonceevensaysthefeetandtoes(Dan2:41),indicatingthat
theyarebothmadefromthesamestuff,ironandclay.Traditional
interpretationofthisscripturehasusuallybeenthatJesusChristwasbornin
BethlehemduringthetimeoftheRomanEmpire(thetwolegs/feet).Because
hewasborntoavirgin,thishappenedwithoutahumanhand.However,the
violenceinthepropheticpicture(therockstrikes,smashesthem,allisbroken

AfarbetterexplanationisthatthepropheticscriptureinDaniel2actually

(Dan2:4244):

Herewehavetheveryphrasewehavebeenlookingfor:Inthetimeofthese
kings(notetheplural),theGodofheavenwillsetupakingdom.Thisisaclear
statementofasovereignactofGodwhereheactswithouttheuseofahuman
hand(nohumanactioncanforce,induceorhastenthisevent),whichistiedto
averyinteresting,historicstatement.Theprophecydoesnotspeakofasingle
kingoremperor(likeAugustus,63BCto14AC),butofatimeofkings,plural.It
speaksoftoes,thefoothillsoftheRomanEmpire,thekingsthatcameafter
Rome,thathavetriedtoformpoliticalalliancesthroughintermarriage.No
othercontinenthastriedtodoexactlythatmorethanEurope.

Accordingtomosthistorians,theRomanEmpireendedin476withOdoaker
deposingRomolusAugustulus.TheRomanEmpirewassplitintomanydifferent
nations,and,notsurprisingly,fellapartintoexactlytennationsorkingdoms:
theAlemanni,AngloSaxons,Franks,Burgundians,Lombards,Visigoths,Suevi,
Ostrogoths,Heruli,andtheVandals.
Herewehaveourtentoes;ortenhorns,touseanotherpictureDaniel
describesinchapter7.ThesetennationsarethefoothillsoftheRomanEmpire.
Dan7:24says,Thetenhornsaretenskingswhowillcomefromthis(Roman)
kingdom.Theprophecyspeaksofthekings(kingdoms)thatdirectlyfollowthe
RomanEmpire.ItisahistorictruththattheseEuropeannationshavetriedvery
muchtoformpoliticalalliancesbyintermarriage,asitliterallysaysinDan2:43.
Thesekingdomswilltrytostrengthenthemselvesbyformingallianceswith
eachotherthroughintermarriage.Buttheywillnotholdtogether,justasiron
andclaydonotmix.
Bynow,thesetennationshavebecomethecorenationsofEurope,theheirof
theRomanEmpire,andthecradleoftheculturalWest.Fromhere,through
colonization,Europeangeneshavespreadthroughoutothercontinentsaswell.
TheEuropeanIdea,theconceptthatEuropeshouldbecometheUnited
NationsofEurope,similartotheUnitedStatesofAmerica,hasbeenpropagated
byagreatmany.However,itdoesnotwork.Ironandclaydonotmix.Many
believethatEuropeisonlyheldtogetherbythreethings:acommoncurrency
thatnobodylikes,thefearofthearchitectsoftheEuropeanIdeatoloseface
whentheirpoliticalpetprojectscomescrashingdown,andthegiganticfinancial
debtthatafailedEuropewillcost.ButthefactisthatEuropeiscrackingup.In
May2014,Europewitnessedapoliticalelectionthatledtoatleast10%ofall
seatsintheEuropeanParliamentbeingheldbyEurosceptics.26%ofvotersin
Denmark,28%intheUK,20%inAustriaand25%inFrancevotedagainst
Europe.

TheimminentfailingofEuropeisakeymomenttobehold.IbelievethatGod
hasleftusenoughcluesforanotherimportantpartoftheKingdomSingularity,
whichisinthemaking,hiddeninplainsight.WhenEuropefallsapart,Godwill

36

setuphisKingdom.Whenthetoesstopclingingtogether,whenkings(political

WhenIsraelisbeingrestoredasanation,whenanIslamicalliancewillbe
