BIBLE PROPHECY IGNORED EVEN WHEN

COMING TRUE WITH 100% ACCURACY


By Stewart Best 2003

One of the strange enigmas of the world is the total ignoring of Bible prophecy as it
comes true with complete accuracy - right under the people's noses - a sort of COVERT
FULFILLMENT, which cannot be seen at all by the world at large - even by the vast
majority of Christians because of spiritual blindness It cannot be said the world is not
interested in prophecy, because those TV programs that investigate the subject are
extremely popular - but they almost never cite Old or New Testament prophets, the only
prophets in the world to have the distinction of being 100% accurate 100% of the time.
And if they do cite them, they do so totally out of context. Instead of using the Bible as a
source of information, if used at all, it is to mock it, and to scoff at it, while presenting
seers and mystics like Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Ruth Montgomery and others as being
those that should be followed as authority figures - even though their track record is often
below 20% in accuracy.

So what is the cause of this enigma?

1. The Bible prophets themselves claimed that, at the time of the end, mankind as a
entire unit would reject the Bible, the New Covenant, and PROPHECY! While the
prophesied events were coming true, the vast majority of people would claim it was
coincidental!! They would deny that the world was headed for disaster:

2 Peter 3:3-7
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their
own lusts, [4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers
fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. [5]
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of
old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: [6] Whereby the world
that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: [7] But the heavens and the
earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day
of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Notice that the Word claims MANKIND IS WILLFULLY IGNORANT. In other words,
it is WILLFUL REJECTION, done with a conscious mind. It is deliberate, and mankind
simply REJECTS the knowledge the Bible conveys, because they cannot stand the awful
message that it brings about their true NATURE or their fate. "HOW COULD A LIVING
GOD DO SUCH A THING?" they scream. "Away with Him, we will not have anything
to do with such a God", would be the summation of their attitude. The foolishness of
these remarks, and the terrible rebellion that is conveys is actual confirmation of the
Bible itself.

1
2. The Bible claims that the real nature of man is so antagonistic to the TRUE GOD, that
his mind does not WANT to recognize the real truth of his predicament. He refuses to
accept the fact that he is a fallen creature in dire need of redemption, and therefore cannot
accept any VALIDITY to prophecy, because if prophecy is correct, and is coming true
with such precision, then THE REST OF THE BIBLE might also be true - and that
CANNOT BE ACCEPTED WHATSOEVER. It is sort of like throwing out the baby with
the bathwater.

Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
[10] I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according
to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

This antagonism towards all things Scriptural is running rampant throughout all major
media as the world rises up in its LAST REBELLION against the Most High. Satan is
stirring the masses, moving them in the spirit for the final delusion and thus bringing in
their final rebellion and ruin. Either mankind is under the control of Satan as the Bible
declares, or the entire Book is a lie - for the premise of the Scripture is that mankind fell
under the spiritual dominion of an alien entity called Satan, whose sole purpose is to
destroy mankind and seduced the world to worship him as god of this world, via the
deception of the Antichrist.

Rev. 12:9
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were
cast out with him.

Can anyone explain why all other books are fine and should be promoted, but when it
comes to THE BIBLE, and when it comes to JESUS CHRIST as sole redeemer,
HATRED AND MOCKING BEGIN? Has it not occurred to people that when
DEMONIZATION of a book, a concept, a person or subject occurs, that THERE MUST
BE A SPIRITUAL POWER that does not want anyone to find the REAL TRUTH
BEHIND WHATEVER IS BEING PRESENTED? Is it not a clue that one really should
investigate that subject or person a little more to find out what is really going on?

HABAKKUK AND THE IRAQ WAR - THE REAL PLAN BECOMES


KNOWN

As one studies the news headlines and reads the various accounts about what is being
said in Washington, it becomes clear that the Bible prophet Habakkuk's vision of
America invading the Middle East and taking it all for itself draws closer by the day. We
have watched many prophetic websites and not seen anything about the VISION THAT
HABAKKUK SAW. It is as though they cannot bring themselves to admit who
America is, and what America is about to do. That Habakkuk is coming to pass with

2
100% accuracy, and it is being ignored by almost all prophecy "scholars", proves the
blindness of even the Christian leaders in America - another fulfillment of prophecy!!

The headlines from a major newspaper in Israel screamed that the United States assured
Israel that IRAQ WAS FIRST, then IRAN, and SYRIA, and then of course a few other
nations as well, and that came directly from a U.S. official. In other words, a complete
takeover of the entire Middle East is planned in an effort to subjugate the Arab world and
force them into the New World Order and bio-region control, run out of
Jerusalem. Interesting that we have direct proof that all of this was planned back in
1997!! However, Habakkuk told us of this 2000+ years ago, in complete detail - except
no one wants to believe that America is Babylon and that we are the latter day
CHALDEANS. Well, the facts are the facts, and reality is reality, and we ARE THE
LATTER DAY CHALDEANS, and we WILL TAKE THE MIDDLE EAST. It may not
be right now, or as immediate as we all think, because Habakkuk claims the VISION
WILL TARRY, but it will come, and it will not TARRY, but will be eventually fulfilled.

God, according to Habakkuk, claims this entire invasion is EVIL, VIOLENT, UNJUST,
which seems to contradict the prevailing official American take or thought on the
subject. Bush has declared this a JUST WAR, a war that needs to be done to make the
world a "safer place". That makes us hearken back to "When they say peace and security,
sudden destruction cometh and they shall not escape". Someone is wrong here - either
Habakkuk was undergoing some wild hallucinations, or he is telling the truth and no one
wants to hear it. Habakkuk makes it clear that Iraq is not the primary target - there are in
fact two primary targets, and Iraq is simply part of the agenda to get there.

1. The first target is the Middle East itself. It encompasses at least 10 Arab nations,
probably the entire OPEC OIL PRODUCTION NATIONS This means we will
eventually set up 10 Arab puppet kings per Revelation 17, and these kings will go along
with the U.S.A/NATO/UN BEAST POWER, for they have no choice - "who can make
war with the beast?". Of course, it will not be presented this way to the public - but you
can rest assured that these "new kings" will bow to the UN dictates.

2. The other target is the Constitution and Bill of Rights in America. America's form of
government is in opposition to the NEW WORLD ORDER and the UN Charter, which is
a Communist/Marxist document. The UN is a TROJAN HORSE, that now has a major
foothold upon America and will soon be used to bring America down and in total
compliance to its dictates. The American people are right now calling for a UN
RESOLUTION and UN APPROVAL before we go to war. That shows us how deeply
entrenched the UN has become in the minds of the American people.

We can prove, via Habakkuk, and confirm by ancient interpretation from the Dead Sea
Scrolls, that America will not only invade the Middle East, but will also align itself with
the ANTICHRIST, and therefore will most likely betray Israel as well. The strategy is
really quite simple - and is taking place before our very eyes - just as Habakkuk said it
would - but he also said we would NOT BELIEVE IT WHEN IT HAPPENED, EVEN
THOUGH IT HAD BEEN TOLD TO US.

3
It is important to discuss this remark of Habakkuk:

Habakkuk 1:5-6
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work
a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you. [6] For, lo, I
raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the
breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.

Habakkuk 2:1-3
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what
he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. [2] And the
LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that
he may run that readeth it. [3] For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the
end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely
come, it will not tarry.

Why won't we believe the vision? Why, even though it happens RIGHT UNDER OUR
NOSES, do we reject it? The answer lies in THE DECEPTION LAID DOWN LONG
BEFORE - that AMERICA IS NOT IN BIBLE PROPHECY, that America is still a
GODLY NATION, a nation under God, Blessed of God, and is therefore a JUST AND
MORAL NATION. In point of fact, there is no such thing as a just or moral nation in the
eyes of God. But this goes deeper than that. IT GOES TO THE INFILTRATION
OF CHURCH BY "MYSTERY". Mystery, in order to succeed in bringing in the
ANTICHRIST, must do so by total deception - and one means of deception is
DIVERSION. Thus in order to DIVERT ATTENTION away from America and what it
is doing, Mystery infiltrates the PROPHETIC MOVEMENT. These so-called high profile
prophetic scholars then claim AMERICA IS NOT IN PROPHECY, and that all of the
ANTICHRIST ACTION will take place in Europe, and lo and behold, almost all
prophetic ministries claim the European Union is the place to watch, and totally ignore
what is happening right here in America!!

Diversion as to who is what is the name of the game for Satan and his prophetic dupes -
and while America is fulfilling with 100% accuracy the prophecies for BABYLON THE
GREAT, no one pays any attention and few actually believe it!! This is known as the
fine art of WAR, AND DIVERSION AWAY FROM THE TRUTH IS THE
PRIMARY MEANS OF DEFEATING THE ENEMY. America is Babylon The Great,
that mighty end-time nation that goes forth to conquer the entire world, and that is the
reality of it, even if no one wants to believe it. Lo and behold, articles are now appearing
in Washington about the REAL GAME PLAN of the Elite.It is called "PAX
AMERICANA" - the game plan for America is be the only SUPERPOWER IN THE
WORLD, and America is to RUN THE WORLD.

If America is REJECTED as being in Bible prophecy, and is almost always rejected as


being Babylon the Great (even though she is the only nation in the world that fulfills the
140+ parameters given), then of course WHEN AMERICA INVADES THE MIDDLE

4
EAST and takes over the entire world (super weapons will soon be revealed), IT WILL
COME AS A TOTAL AND COMPLETE SURPRISE!! That is exactly why Habakkuk
says "YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE IT EVEN THOUGH IT IS TOLD YOU." You won't
believe it because you did not believe America's role in Bible prophecy!! Even after
the invasion, even after the puppet kings are set up, even after the UN comes to power as
the front organization for world government, few will believe it, understand it, or accept
it. To accept America's role in prophecy is very difficult, because it is SO
SHOCKING, SO TERRIBLE IN ITS IMPLICATIONS that we simply do not want
to believe it. It insults us, it shocks us, and we say "this could NOT be true"! Thus
we reject it, not based upon any factual analysis, but rather on an emotional basis,
because we DO NOT WANT IT TO BE TRUE.

However, facts are facts, parameters are parameters, and there is nothing we can do about
what God has to say except EMBRACE IT, BELIEVE IT, WORK WITHIN IN, and
make plans to LEAVE when God tells us to. America is right now walking into a trap in
the Middle East; walking into a series of events that make her the target of those she is
about to plunder. They, in the end, ATTACK AMERICA WITH NUCLEAR MISSILES
IN A SURPRISE VICTORY! If you spoil the nations, will not the nations spoil you, asks
the Lord?

Habakkuk 2:7-8
Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee,
and thou shalt be for booties unto them? [8] Because thou hast spoiled many
nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and
for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.

We can know that the target is the entire Middle East because Habakkuk says many more
than one nation is the TARGET. He uses the term PRINCES (plural) and KINGS
(plural). It is not just IRAQ and the OIL FIELDS. It is much deeper than that. It concerns
the overthrow of many nations, and God says it is EVIL in the extreme:

Habakkuk 1:6-11
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march
through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs. [7]
They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of
themselves. [8] Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce
than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their
horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat. [9] They
shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall
gather the captivity as the sand. [10] And they shall scoff at the kings, and the
princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they
shall heap dust, and take it. [11] Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over,
and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.

5
The plural form of PRINCES AND KINGS makes it very clear that we have every
intention of overthrowing a number of Arab nations - and the headlines would
prove it:

When an UNDERSECRETARY of the United States, assures ISRAEL that SYRIA and
IRAN are next, then you know perfectly well that IRAQ is just an EXCUSE, a way to
INVADE THE MIDDLE EAST, set up a PUPPET KING, and that give the United States
a vast land area to bring in all the military equipment it needs to control the entire Midde
East area. The trap has been set by Saddam - the "least of them" will draw America out,
draw her into a series of battles to MAKE THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE, to bring
DEMOCRACY to the world. It is the age old dream of the occult Free Masons, to set up
their UNIVERSAL SHRINE TO WORLD DEMOCRACY in the EMPIRE STATE, in
New York City at the United Nations. However, in making the world a safer place by
forcing democracies on the nations of the world, it turns into total chaos and destruction.
The violence done by the U.S. military, as it goes forth to conquer the world, makes

6
the survivors of those nations so angry that they plot to destroy the GREAT CITY
BABYLON and with it, the nation BABYLON THE GREAT.

Jeremiah 50:45-46
Therefore hear ye the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Babylon;
and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely
the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation
desolate with them. [46] At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved,
and the cry is heard among the nations.

THE DEAD SEA SCROLL COMMENTARY ON HABAKKUK:

“Habakkuk 1:5 Look among the nations and see, and you will be astounded, bewildered.
For I will do a work in your days; you will not believe when it is told.

Interpretation: (The explanation of this concerns those that have BETRAYED WITH
THE MAN OF LIES (ANTICHRIST); for they have not believed the words of the
TEACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (JESUS CHRIST) which He received from the
mouth of God. And it concerns those who BETRAYED THE NEW COVENANT; for
they did not BELIEVE IN THE COVENANT OF GOD AND PROFANED HIS
HOLY NAME.”

Is this not interesting? That 2000 years ago the followers of the TEACHER OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is obviously Jesus Christ, knew that HABAKKUK was
referring to THE ANTICHRIST, and his followers, who DO NOT BELIEVE THE
BIBLE, OR ITS PROPHECIES, nor do they believe IN THE NEW COVENANT OF
REBIRTH, of being BORN AGAIN in the SPIRIT OF GOD, that is DIVINE AGAPE.
They BETRAY the NEW COVENANT, and this implies that although they know all
about it, and even quote from the Bible extensively, they DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD
OF IT. They simply use it as a method of gaining power. It is the rebellion of Psalm Two.
This might also explain the concept that they EXPEL JESUS CHRIST FROM THE
TEMPLES. In other words they BETRAY THE CHRISTIANS, take over the
denominations, usher in an entire NEW CONCEPT, which would be NEW AGE
THEOLOGY (MASONIC) , and it is these people, of the FOURTH REICH, the
occultists of MYSTERY that come in like a flood. Habakkuk continues:

“And likewise, the explanation of this word, concerns those who will betray at the end of
days: they are VIOLENT...WHO WILL NOT BELIEVE WHEN THEY HEAR ALL
THE THINGS WHICH WILL BEFALL THE LAST GENERATION from the mouth of
the Priest whom God placed in the House of Judah (Jesus Christ) to explain all the words
of His servants the Prophets, by whose hand God has told all that will befall HIS
PEOPLE and THE NATIONS.”

7
Notice that these people are VIOLENT, which is exactly what Habakkuk says of the
latter day Babylonians. The Americans come for VIOLENCE. Again it is stated that
THEY WILL NOT BELIEVE THE PROPHECIES, they refuse them, they claim it is
all a myth, and proceed to their own destruction.

"Habakkuk 1:6a For behold, I rouse the Chaldeans, that cruel and hasty nation”

Interpretation: The explanation of this concerns the KITTIM, who are quick and valiant
in battle, CAUSING MANY TO PERISH: and the EARTH WILL FALL UNDER
THE DOMINION OF THE KITTIM, AND THE WICKED WILL SEE IT, BUT
WILL NOT BELIEVE IN THE PROPHETS OF GOD.”

The only nation that rises up to rule the world at the time of the end is BABYLON THE
GREAT, and the United States is the only nation in the world that fulfills all the
parameters and criteria that God has given to us to IDENTIFY this nation. America and
England ARE THE KITTIM of the last days!! It is America that rises up and BETRAYS
THE NEW COVENANT. America is taken over by the OCCULT NEW AGE
MOVEMENT AND MYSTERY. Even though they watch prophecy being fulfilled
RIGHT BEFORE THEIR EYES; they refuse to believe it, they refuse to stop their
MURDERS AND FORNICATION. It is the last rise of EVIL that God allows to take
place.

It is an odd thing that people REFUSE TO ACCEPT OR BELIEVE PROPHECY even


though it is coming true right before their eyes. They cannot fathom it; it is beyond their
capability to accept it. Thus they reject it as COINCIDENCE, that prophecy is merely
speculation at best, and old wives tales at the worst. In any event, they reject it totally and
go on to their own destruction.

At the time when Jesus walked this Earth, He was fulfilling prophecies by the hundreds
and yet those versed in it, and who knew well the OLD TESTAMENT, where totally
UNABLE to connect the EVENTS with prophecy!! We believe it has to do with the
hidden, but very real nature of man and his heart. The Bible declares that mankind
HATES THE TRUE GOD with a PASSION. It says that his inner heart is WICKED
BEYOND COMPREHENSION, and is not, nor can it be subject to the LAWS OF GOD.
This inner unconscious hatred spills over into other areas, prophecy being one of them.

CAN WE PROVE IT IS BABYLON THAT DESTROYS THE


NATIONS?

Jeremiah 50:14-16
Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow,
shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD. [15] Shout

8
against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her
walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon
her; as she hath done, do unto her. [16] Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him
that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they
shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.

Jeremiah 51:25
Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which
destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee
down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.

Throughout Scripture, it is the NATION Babylon the Great that goes forth and destroys
the other nations and brings them into her net. That is why Habakkuk says that they
continue to slay the nations - and why God says RENDER UNTO BABYLON WHAT
SHE GAVE THE WORLD. She gave the world VIOLENCE, thus she gets back
VIOLENCE. She gave the world the nuclear bomb, thus she gets it back in SPADES.

If we move into Daniel Chapter Two, we find an interesting reference to Babylon and she
goes forth to dominate the entire world for a short time, which is only 42 months or 360
day=1year 3.5 years.

Daniel 4:13-15
I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy
one came down from heaven; [14] He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree,
and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get
away from under it, and the fowls from his branches: [15] Nevertheless leave the
stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender
grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be
with the beasts in the grass of the earth:

This vision concerns the ancient King of Babylon, just before he is sent out for SEVEN
YEARS as a BEAST in the fields. Notice however that the STUMP of ancient Babylon is
left in the ground, and is bound by brass and iron rings. In Daniel Chapter Two Daniel
had a dream/vision of a giant statue, and that statue outlines world history from Babylon
to the Return of Jesus Christ. The statue is made up of different metals, showing how the
world's kingdoms deteriorate over time to CLAY AND IRON, which is the 10 BIO-
REGIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS. The GOLD was Babylon, the Silver Medo-
Persia, the BRASS was Greece and the IRON was Rome. The stump is BOUND-UP BY
GREECE AND ROME. This tells us that BABYLON WILL BE BOUND UP by the
LAWS AND GOVERNMENTAL FORMS OF BOTH THE ANCIENT GREEKS
AND ROMANS. America's form of government has been a combination of both
GREEK AND ROMAN CONCEPTS - a central strong government but also a
government of city and state. America was founded as a REPUBLIC - and as long as the
REPUBLIC LASTED, then THE CONCEPT OF A DICTATORSHIP AND THE RULE
OF WISE MEN AND A KING WOULD LAY DORMENT.

9
This tells us something. America, which is the MODERN BABYLON, will transform
itself eventually into a DICTATORIAL FASCIST SLAVE STATE, and will mirror
ANCIENT BABYLON'S TYPE OF RULE - a KING, with a court of WISE MEN.

Daniel 4:20-23
The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto
the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth; [21] Whose leaves were fair, and
the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field
dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation: [22] It
is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and
reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth. [23] And
whereas the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven, and
saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in
the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let
it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field,
till seven times pass over him;

The stump remains, thus BABYLON dies and goes into a period of being dormant. But
after SEVEN TIMES PASS OVER HIM (THAT TIME IS NOW), Babylon will come
back to life, RISE UP OUT OF THE ANCIENT SEAS OF THE PAST, and will once
again FORM THE BABYLONIAN EMPIRE THAT RULES OVER THE WORLD.
It will not be in the same location; it will be in a new location - clearly shown by the
parameters laid down by the Lord. Iraq, for example, and ancient Babylon, do not fulfill
even 20% of the parameters REQUIRED to be fulfilled to identify the NEW BABYLON.
America, however, fulfills them ALL. In short, the America will CHANGE ITS FORM
OF GOVERNMENT (now well underway to a dictatorship with Patriot Act, Homeland
Security, Patriot Act II and UN TREATIES), and the new form will be identical to that of
ANCIENT BABYLON, THAT IS A PRIEST KING AND COURT OF WISE
MEN.America will follow the path of Rome, and for those stuck upon the concept of a
REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE, AMERICA IS THAT REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE!!
This new dictatorial government will be run out of the United Nations most likely, and
the UN will be revamped, and have far more power given to it. The Lord made a
promise to the KING OF BABYLON, and that was he would rule over the entire earth. It
never happened. But it will, and is beginning to take shape before our eyes. AMERICA-
BABYLON is about to embark upon her last violent killing spree - she will go forth to
conquer the nations, and mold them to HER IMAGE, THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST,
which is A CORPORATE DICTATORSHIP that they call DEMOCRACY.

IS THERE SOMETHING IN ANCIENT BABYLON THAT


PRESIDENT BUSH WANTS?

The ancient writings tell us that the Sumerians/Babylonians were visited by "The Gods".
We know from Scripture that all of these so-called "Gods" were FALLEN
ANGELS, that came to Earth and posed as extraterrestrials. However, there are
persistent rumors that they may have left some powerful artifacts behind; some
HIGH-TECHNOLOGY DEVICES. Saddam is attempting to rebuild ancient

10
Babylon. It is guarded 24/7 with armed guards who can shoot on sight. Aside from
the fact that ANCIENT BABYLON sits on the 33rd degree parallel, is it possible
that our intelligence agencies have found out that Saddam has unearthed something
of great value? Like a STARGATE? They say if you see in it the movies, or see it on
TV presented as SCIENCE FICTION, it is most likely that we have it, or are
working on it, totally off the radar screen of the general public's knowledge.

Whatever the actual driving force behind America's quest for Iraq, it is not AS STATED,
but rather much deeper and much more profound.

THE STRATEGY FOR TAKING THE MIDDLE EAST

The STRATEGY for this war is now making itself known. By using 9-11 as a pretext to
invade AFGHANISTAN, Iran is flanked on the EAST SIDE. By using the DESERT
STORM protocols and UN Resolution 1441 among others, the excuse to invade and
occupy IRAQ is brought forward, because Saddam is not disarming, we are told. By
taking IRAQ, the U.S. Forces then flank IRAN to the WEST. Having troops stationed in
TURKEY is a key part of this plan, for then IRAN is flanked TO THE NORTH, which is
why so much pressure is being applied to TURKEY to allow our troops there. Although
we cannot be sure what incidents will be used to bring war with IRAN, we can be sure
something will transpire to make is NECESSARY to invade IRAN (already targeted and
demonized with such articles appearing that they have ties to terrorist groups, they have
nuclear powerplants that make enriched uranium, etc.), and most likely SYRIA would be
next. Syria is also isolated in all directions (see map). With Israel the main benefactor in
the Middle East, this strategy will totally rearrange the Middle Eastern landscape, and
sets the stage for the appointment of the 10 PUPPET KINGS OF REVELATION 17,
which have no “KINGDOM YET” BUT WILL HAVE WITH THE BEAST FOR 42
MONTHS.

WILL AMERICA WIN THIS WAR?

If we are reading Habakkuk correctly, not only do we win the Iraq war, it is over rapidly,
and with few casualties on our side, however there may be massive casualties of Iraqi
civilians and military. We then use this stronghold to further buildup our Middle East
military might for the strikes on IRAN and SYRIA, and then eventually every Arab state
in the region. This may take some time - and it is difficult to assess that part of it, because
Habakkuk does not tell us how long this conquest of the Middle East is. We only know
that it happens, and that it sets the stage for the demise of the United States, and the rise
of the "Antichrist" powers in America. It is this war that sets the stage for the removal of
Babylon-America by nuclear strike at a later time.

THE FIRST PHASE OF THIS OPERATION IS SHOWN ON THE MAP BELOW:

11
Habakkuk 2:3
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak,

12
and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will
not tarry.

Lift up your heads, your redemption draws near. Amen.

IRAN WAR!!!
By Larry Pahl 2001

The current administration in the US is giving off


all kinds of warnings about Iran's nuclear
capabilities. You can hear the saber-rattling in the
background.
The Bible says there is a war coming, between the
US and Iran. The consequences will be
devastating...to the US...

13
Daniel 8

14
What you hear in secret, shout from the rooftops. Daniel 8 is a startling
revelation that deals with the future fate of America. If you were looking for a
visible, physical symbol of America's financial prowess, you could have picked
the World Trade Towers. What then, would the collapse of these towers
symbolize?

Jesus used the story of a fallen tower that killed many people as a warning to
listeners in His day...

Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were
sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? {5} I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall
all likewise perish. (Luke 13:4-5 KJV)

To update what Jesus said, to fit the big story of a falling tower in our day: "Are
you freaked out by the collapse of the World Trade Center? Unless you repent
you will all likewise perish." In other words, Jesus is saying something like this:
"You will perish in hell unless you are right with Me."

Let us begin what is an enlightening and frightening journey into...

the words of the Bible...

Daniel 8 is an area of Bible prophecy ripe with important meaning but which has
been overlooked almost completely by prophecy scholars.

It is helpful in interpreting the vision of Daniel 8 to start with the clues from the
interpreting angel who comes to Daniel. The vision involves a ram with two horns
being attacked by a goat from the west
who has one notable horn.

These animals and their


horns represent nations.
What nations?
Another question we want the
interpreting angel to answer is
"When does this vision apply?" The
angel does not disappoint us in

15
providing these two items of information.

As to the question of the time of the vision, the angel says three different times,
that the vision is for the time of the end:

1. v. 17: Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

2. v.19a: I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation:

3. v.19b: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

The angel is being very clear that this vision is for the end of time. This is an
angel from Heaven speaking, not an evangelical expositor. It is important to take
note of this because all the evangelical expositors say that this vision deals with
Alexander the Great. Look at the major commentaries, consult the famous radio
and TV preachers, check the seminaries. The verdict is well nigh unanimous.
Because our forefathers for centuries incorrectly interpreted this vision to be
Alexander's defeat of the Persian armies should we listen to them in place of the
angel from Heaven? To say the obvious, Alexander the Great is not living at the
time of the end! For those few "noble Bereans" of today ("The Bereans were
eager to hear what Paul and Silas said and studied the Scriptures every day to
find out if these things were true." Acts 17:11) it should come as an exciting
revelation that this vision will be fulfilled at the end of time, the very time in which
we live.

As to the second area where we would look to the interpreting angel for help, that
of the nations represented by these beasts and horns, the angel gives a very
plain declaration in verses 20 and 21. They are Media, Persia, and Greece. The
names are symbolic:

20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and
Persia. 21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is
between his eyes is the first king.

Note in verse 21 that the goat is said to be a king, and then the "great horn" is
also said to be a "king." What might appear to be an unnecessary redundancy in
the vision, of having both goat and horn represent a "king" is cleared up upon
examining the original tongue. "King" is from Strong's 4428 (melek) which is from
4427 (malak) which carries with it the idea of a "reign" or "kingdom." It is
translated "reign" in most of its 300+ usages. Thus the goat, the larger entity
(compared to a horn) appears to represent a "reign", a territory of potentially vast
proportions, whereas the horn would seem to represent one individual king within
that larger "reign" or kingdom. Sort of like a state governor as a "king" within the
larger "reign" of the United States.

16
If we are going to be loyal to the interpreting angel, we must find modern
meanings for the "kings of Media and Persia." (because, remember, the angel
told us this vision is for the end.) This is not hard. Modern Iran is Persia. The
modern ethnic Kurds claim to be descendants of the ancient Medes, and thus it
would be fair to say that current "Media" is the approximate area of Iraq and
Syria. The single goat would indicate the larger "reign" of these two powers;
since God has used sacrificial animals in this vision--a ram and goat--(unlike
chapter 7 where unclean beasts were used to represent Gentile nations), it could
be concluded that that "reign" is the influence of Islam. The ram thus represents
the fundamentalist power of Islam in a life-or-death struggle with the goat,
representing Greece. What power in the modern world is represented by the
interpreting angel's mention of "Greece?" The apostle Paul uses the expression
"Greece" several places in the New Testament to refer to the civilized world. For
example:

1 Cor 1:22-23 "For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the
Greeks foolishness;"

The Greek word hellen, here translated "Greeks" is also translated as "Gentiles"
and basically means a person who speaks Greek, not necessarily someone from
the literal country of Greece. Greek was the language of the learned, it carried
the culture which began with the famous ancient Greek poets, playwrights and
philosophers, that ultimately became the basis for what today we call "Western
civilization." Notice that this goat comes from the "west." (v. 5) Thus we have
pictured here, in cartoon, or vision form, the struggle between Islam and Western
civilization's Christianity. The angel tells us that the prominent horn on this goat is
"the first king." (v. 21)

Here the word translated "first" means "foremost", not necessarily first in terms of
order. Who is the foremost, the "first", nation of modern Western civilization? It is
certainly the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the
world. Thus we have pictured here in Daniel 8 a vision of the clash of
civilizations East and West, Islamic and Christian. We have certainly seen
this in the recent Gulf War and the terrorist activities of certain fundamentalist
sects in Syria and Iran, the leading exporters of international terrorism. As I have
been listening to the daily reports after the Big NY Terrorist Attack of Sept 11,
2001, like everybody in America was doing for days after the incident, it was
obvious that there was a class of civilizations. People dancing in the street for
joy that America was hit. Americans decrying the barbarism of attacking "our
way of life."

The prophecy calls for two major ram powers, the "higher" to arise after the
other. If we view the rise of Sadam Hussein as the first horn, we might expect
Iran or another Middle Easter power to soon rise as a major antagonist to the
West and the US, in a tangible way similar to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Iran is

17
listed by the US Department of State as the leading promoter of terrorism against
the West in the recent past. The interpreting angel mentions Media as the first of
the two horns, and then the king of Persia. The order would thus be Iraq
(Saddam Hussein) and then Iran (Persia). As to Iran's being "higher", the idea of
the Hebrew word is not no so much height as "pride" and "conceit." Picture a
coming Iranian leader more prideful than Saddam! Could it be Osama Bin
Ladin????

Our topic in this article is the fate of the US. What does the prophecy say will be
the response of the US to the rise of this second "horn"? You don't need
prophecy to tell you that Americans would be fighting mad! Verse 7 says:

"And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with anger against
him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the
ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon
him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand."

Here is pictured a Desert Storm-like annihilation of these Islamic forces. The two
horns are utterly broken with no one to help. With the demise of the Soviet Union
we need not fear retaliation if we should bomb several of these Islamic countries
into submission. It is interesting to note that Daniel is standing right near the
border of Iraq and Kuwait when he receives this vision!

What happens next? The US becomes very proud. "Therefore the he goat waxed
very great." (v. 8) We will be so proud of our Super Bowl sting of these Islamic
dogs. Picture George Bush' victory dances around the country after Desert
Storm. It is obvious to any observer of the American mood after the attack on the
(former) World Trade Towers, that most Americans want to bust somebody's
chop. They will wink at the bombing of innocent people. They are angry.
Beware when you see the US in its next victory dance of this type, when the
second horn is crushed. Verse 8 succinctly says:

"...and when he was strong, the great horn was broken."

Here is the plain biblical revelation of the fate of the U.S. The symbolism of the
"great horn"--the U.S.--being "broken" is a graphic picture of the economic
collapse of the U.S. The collapse of the towers representing our economic
system is a prophecy which matches this prophecy of Daniel 8.

If any man have an ear to hear, let him hear. As John the Baptist said,“ Flee
from the wrath to come!”

18
The economic collapse of America is coming. I am certain that is
what Daniel 8 is telling us. Here is what that means to me:
The world will continue to go on, just as it did when
Babylon fell, and when Rome fell, and when the sun set
upon the British Empire. The economic collapse of
America is not the end of the world, nor the end of
America. America will still exist, but in a much less free
form. Just as the economic collapse of the Weimar
Republic paved the way for Hitler's rise in Germany,
America's financial decline will lead to a more totalitarian
regime.
Therefore, one of the most important things you can do,
practically, is get your financial house in order.

Learn to grow food and have a plan for moving to a


more remote area than you now live in. If you live in the
city, have a plan for a move to a rural suburb. If you are in
a suburb, have a plan for moving to the country. If you are
in the country, have a plan for a move to a more remote
area.
Get together regularly with a group of believers you
love and trust and can be in local fellowship with. A
support group is very critical at a time of great change and
uncertainty. I have noticed that birds flock together before
a large storm. This is an instinct that apparently is divine.
Begin to believe from your heart, and, with wisdom, begin
to share with others, that Jesus is coming again. The end of
the age truly is at hand. Learn to truly rest in the love of
Jesus, with the assurance that He knows you, cares for you,
will guide you and your family. Trust in Him.

If you don't understand this DECEPTION,


you've been "Left Behind!"
The Christian world stands in danger of being utterly deceived and
is not even aware of it. The current pictures of who the antichrist is
which are present in Christendom show a very distorted and
imperfect understanding of the Bible's warnings in this area.
Popular notions deriving from the likes of Hal Lindsay, Left
Behind, Jack Van Impe and other books and videos would lead you
to believe that the antichrist is some obviously bewitched, deranged
monster who any child would recognize as satanic.

19
The Bible, on the other hand, paints a picture of an antichrist with a very Christian face.
He will bless the children, favor religion, and be sympathetic with the plight of the
oppressed. He will be a believer in one God and not a universalist. He will claim to be
an anointed Christian.

This is the plain meaning of these verses from the synoptic gospels:

• (Mat 24:5 KJV) For many shall come in my


name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive
many.
• (Mark 13:6 KJV) For many shall come in my
name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive
many.
• (Luke 21:8 KJV) And he said, Take heed that ye
be not deceived: for many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

When three gospels trumpet such a unified warning, you would think every believer
would be informed of it in the 2000 year history of Christianity. But instead the warning
is heard no where. Perhaps some are misreading what Jesus is saying in these verses.
When He says that these many false prophets say in His name "I am Christ," perhaps
many readers think Jesus is saying that they will claim to be Jesus himself. But that is
not what Jesus is saying. Jesus did not speak English, so He did not say "I am Christ."
He spoke Aramaic, and a better translation of what He really said would be "I am
anointed." That is what the Greek means.

So these false prophets who Jesus is warning about are not saying, "I am Jesus." They
are saying what most Christian teachers say, "I am anointed. I have the Holy Spirit..."

Notice that Jesus says that these false prophets, who are Christians, will deceive MANY.
This is spoken in a last days setting. If we are in the last days, as many Christians
confess, and as the signs of the times indicate, then we should now be witnessing MANY
false prophets who are deceiving MANY Christians. MANY is not just a few. MANY
would be thousands and millions.

But if you take a poll of believing, born-again Christians, and ask them to name groups of
millions of Christians who are now being deceived, they would say, "Well, I don't think
there are any groups of thousands or millions that are being deceived, other than
Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses, but they are not really Christians."

This is the most common response that you would receive. So something is wrong.
Either Jesus made a mistake with His plain warnings recorded by Matthew, Mark, and
Luke, or the Christian world is blinded to some gargantuan deception which is
everywhere currently plaguing the Christian world.

20
If I have to choose between Jesus having made a mistake with His warning, or
current Christendom's mistake in not properly seeing the current fulfillment of His
words, I am going to bet on Jesus and not on the current Christian world professing
His name.

If so, then who are these millions of currently deceived Christians and who are the ones
deceiving them?

A MESSAGE FROM CORRIE TEN BOOM


URGING US TO SPIRITUALLY PREPARE
OURSELVES IN CHRIST FOR THE
COMING TRIALS OF OUR FAITH.

CORRIE TEN BOOM TELLS OF THE


CHINESE CHURCH BEING UNWARNED
AND ILL-PREPARED FOR THE
PERSECUTIONS THAT BEGAN IN 1949
UNDER MAO TSE TUNG'S RED GUARDS. SHE ALSO
WARNS THAT THOSE WHO TEACH A PRE-
TRIBULATION RAPTURE ARE AMONG THE FALSE
TEACHERS JESUS WARNED US ABOUT. (-Mat.24:4-5)
TODAY'S POPULAR BIBLE PROPHECY TEACHERS
ARE SIMILARLY FAILING TO PREPARE
COMFORTABLE WESTERN CHRISTIANS TO TAKE UP
THEIR CROSS AND WITNESS AS OVERCOMERS IN
THE COMING TRIBULATION.

21
Miss Corrie Ten Boom was a Dutch survivor of the Nazi
Concentration Camps, and a lifelong missionary. Corrie was
a believer in facing tribulation. She was one of the many
people who were persecuted in concentration camps during
the World War II. Her family was murdered before her
eyes, but though her life was threatened, God led her
through that terrible time. She lived to testify all over the
world of how God brought her out of that time of trouble. In
the worst days in the concentration camp she and her sister
Betsy discovered that "there is no pit so deep that the Presence of God is not
there with us". In an interview titled "Prepared for the Coming Tribulation",
she shared the following plea for the saints to prepare for their faith to be
tested. It serves today as a timely warning to us in the comfortable and
complacent western church as we approach the threshold of the endtime drama.

Here is her exhortation to us from a letter she wrote in 1974.

"The world is deathly ill. It is dying. The Great Physician has already signed
the death certificate. Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do. They
are to be streams of living water, channels of mercy to those who are still in the
world. It is possible for them to do this because they are overcomers.

Christians are ambassadors for Christ. They are representatives from Heaven
to this dying world. And because of our presence here, things will change.

My sister, Betsy, and I were in the Nazi concentration camp at Ravensbruck


because we committed the crime of loving Jews. Seven hundred of us from
Holland, France, Russia, Poland and Belgium were herded into a room built for
two hundred. As far as I knew, Betsy and I were the only two representatives
of Heaven in that room.

We may have been the Lord's only representatives in that place of hatred, yet
because of our presence there, things changed. Jesus said, "In the world you
shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." We
too, are to be overcomers – bringing the light of Jesus
into a world filled with darkness and hate.

Sometimes I get frightened as I read the Bible, and as I


look in this world and see all of the tribulation and

22
persecution promised by the Bible coming true. Now I can tell you, though, if
you too are afraid, that I have just read the last pages. I can now come to
shouting "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" for I have found where it is written that
Jesus said, "He that overcometh shall inherit all things: and I will be His God,
and he shall be My son." This is the future and hope of this world. Not that the
world will survive – but that we shall be overcomers in the midst of a dying
world.

Betsy and I, in the concentration camp, prayed that God would heal Betsy who
was so weak and sick. "Yes, the Lord will heal me,", Betsy said with
confidence. She died the next day and I could not understand it. They laid her
thin body on the concrete floor along with all the other corpses of the women
who died that day.

It was hard for me to understand, to believe that God had a purpose for all that.
Yet because of Betsy's death, today I am traveling all over the world telling
people about Jesus.

There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the
Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that
Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days. Most of them have little
knowledge of what is already going on across the world. I have been in
countries where the saints are already suffering terrible persecution.

In China, the Christians were told, "Don't worry, before the tribulation
comes you will be translated – raptured." Then came a terrible
persecution. Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard
a Bishop from China say, sadly,

"We have failed.


We should have made the people strong for persecution rather than telling
them Jesus would come first.
Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution,
how to stand when the tribulation comes,
– to stand and not faint."

I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it
is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the
tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the
world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape
it.
We are next.

23
Since I have already gone through prison for Jesus' sake, and since I met the
Bishop in China, now every time I read a good Bible text I think, "Hey, I can
use that in the time of tribulation." Then I write it down and learn it by heart.

When I was in the concentration camp, a camp where only twenty percent of
the women came out alive, we tried to cheer each other up by saying, "Nothing
could be any worse than today." But we would find the next day was even
worse. During this time a Bible verse that I had committed to memory gave me
great hope and joy.

"If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory
and of God resteth upon you;
on their part evil is spoken of,
but on your part He is glorified."
(I Peter 3:14)
I found myself saying, "Hallelujah!
Because I am suffering, Jesus is glorified!"

In America, the churches sing, "Let the congregation escape tribulation", but in
China and Africa the tribulation has already arrived. This last year alone more
than two hundred thousand Christians were martyred in Africa. Now things
like that never get into the newspapers because they cause bad political
relations. But I know. I have been there. We need to think about that when we
sit down in our nice houses with our nice clothes to eat our steak dinners.
Many, many members of the Body of Christ are being tortured to death at this
very moment, yet we continue right on as though we are all going to escape the
tribulation.

Several years ago I was in Africa in a nation where a new government had
come into power. The first night I was there some of the Christians were
commanded to come to the police station to register. When they arrived they
were arrested and that same night they were executed. The next day the same
thing happened with other Christians. The third day it was the same. All the
Christians in the district were being systematically murdered.

The fourth day I was to speak in a little church. The people came, but they
were filled with fear and tension. All during the service they were looking at
each other, their eyes asking, "Will this one I am sitting beside be the next one
killed? Will I be the next one?"

24
The room was hot and stuffy with insects that came through the screenless
windows and swirled around the naked bulbs over the bare wooden benches. I
told them a story out of my childhood.

"When I was a little girl, " I said, "I went to my father and said,
"Daddy, I am afraid that I will never be strong enough to be a marty for
Jesus Christ."
"Tell me," said Father,
"When you take a train trip to Amsterdam,
when do I give you the money for the ticket?
Three weeks before?"

"No, Daddy, you give me the money for the ticket just before we get on the
train." "That is right," my father said, "and so it is with God's strength.
Our Father in Heaven knows when you will need the strength to be a
martyr for Jesus Christ.
He will supply all you need – just in time…"

My African friends were nodding and smiling. Suddenly a spirit of joy


descended upon that church and the people began singing,

" In the sweet, by and by,


we shall meet on that beautiful shore."
Later that week, half the congregation of that church was executed. I heard
later that the other half was killed some months ago.

But I must tell you something. I was so happy that the Lord used me to
encourage these people, for unlike many of their leaders, I had the word of
God. I had been to the Bible and discovered that Jesus said He had not only
overcome the world, but to all those who remained faithful to the end, He
would give a crown of life.

How can we get ready for the persecution? First we need to feed on the word
of God, digest it, make it a part of our being. This will mean disciplined Bible
study each day as we not only memorize long passages of scripture, but put the
principles to work in our lives.

Next we need to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Not just the
Jesus of yesterday, the Jesus of History, but the life-changing Jesus of today
who is still alive and sitting at the right hand of God.

25
We must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is no optional command of the
Bible, it is absolutely necessary. Those earthly disciples could never have
stood up under the persecution of the Jews and Romans had they not
waited for Pentecost. Each of us needs our own personal Pentecost, the
baptism of the Holy Spirit. We will never be able to stand in the
tribulation without it.

In the coming persecution we must be ready to help each other and encourage
each other. But we must not wait until the tribulation comes before starting.
The fruit of the Spirit should be the dominant force of every Christian's life.

Many are fearful of the coming tribulation, they want to run. I, too, and a little
bit afraid when I think that after all my eighty years, including the horrible nazi
concentration camp, that I might have to go through the tribulation also. But
then I read the Bible and I am glad.

When I am weak, then I shall be strong, the Bible says. Betsy and I were
prisoners for the Lord, we were so weak, but we got power because the Holy
Spirit was on us. That mighty inner strengthening of the Holy Spirit helped us
through. No, you will not be strong in yourself when the tribulation comes.
Rather, you will be strong in the power of Him who will not forsake you. For
seventy-six years I have known the Lord Jesus and not once has He ever left
me, or let me down.
"Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him", for I know that to all who
overcome, He shall give the crown of life.
Hallelujah!
