A Vision Received By: A. C. Valdez
|In 1929 I was preaching in Vancouver, British Columbia. I had gone to the 6th Avenue Church that seats 1,000 people. The old building is gone now. I sat down on the platform, and looked down on the congregation for the Sunday morning service. There were 18 people. I had crossed the continent, from Los Angeles, to get to that meeting. Eighteen people in my first service.
My first thought was, My Lord and my God, the nerve, asking me to come across the country to stand here in front of eighteen people. Now, that was my first thought. Now, I no sooner thought that, when God spoke to my heart and said, "Son, I want you to comfort these people."
They needed comfort. Brother, he gave me the capacity to comfort them. I started preaching comforting words. If I had given way to the human, I would have skinned them alive, and tacked their hides up on the wall. People in a condition like that don't need a skinning, they need comfort. God helped me. He poured in the oil and the wine. He helped me to comfort those people.
They began to cry all over the place, as they needed comfort, the tears began to stream down their cheeks. They had gone through a terrible trial in that city. And the name of "Pentecost" was in the newspapers of that city, and it wasn't very good. The things that they had put into the newspapers were enough to keep most anybody away. I had eighteen people on the inside, and thousands on the outside. God began to work and the Spirit began to come forth.
By the following Sunday the place was well filled. The Holy Ghost began to bring them in. By the end of the third week they had to take down the partition that separated the coat room from the main auditorium to put more seats in that auditorium that seated a thousand. It packed out. They packed the place, standing up and down the winding stairs, and outside of the church building and out into the street. The Glory of God came down. Souls began to get saved and the sick were healed. We had a glorious victory of the world of the flesh and the devil. The ministers were so happy. They said, "Lord, in spite of that death, you've given us victory."
Right in the middle of that victory, I stood in 6th Avenue Church one day with the power of God on me. All of a sudden, the ceiling just disappeared. Now when I say vision, my friends, I know that some visions are what the Bible calls "night visions", like in a dream. You will find that in the Bible. Dreams are also called visions. Generally speaking, a vision is differentiated by what you see with your eyes open. That which you see when you are not asleep.
I began to see this vision and the Lord showed me. I looked up, I saw what answers to the description of an I.C.B.M. (Inter-continental Ballistic Missile). Just as real as any picture that you would see, or the real thing, if you've ever seen one of those missiles. It was just as real as you would look upon one if it were right in front of you, two or three feet away.
I saw it! It was passing over a skim of clouds. Not heavy clouds, but a thin skim of clouds. I was standing on the side of this mountain, a residential district. I was looking over into a bay area. It would appear like I was in Berkeley, if you've ever been to Berkeley, and the Berkeley Hills. I was looking into the bay area toward San Francisco. The San Francisco Bay region, that direction. I saw the freeway. I don't say that it was the Oakland freeway that is there today. I don't know where it was, my friends. I do know this, that I was standing on the side of this mountain, overlooking a huge metropolis.
When I saw this missile directed toward the city, and suddenly, being electronically controlled no doubt, it plummeted right down into the city and then exploded. Then I saw the fireball, which answers to the description of what I have seen in a civil defense film release of the first Hydrogen bomb explosion. This happened in 1929! Yet I saw it as clear as I see you here tonight. There was a purpose in it. I have been warning people ever since, that this thing is coming. As the day approaches, my friends, I feel more vibrant than ever before. I have got to bear testimony to what I saw with my eyes! I have got to warn God's people that they must live in the Spirit, and walk in the Spirit and be filled with the Spirit, if they want God's protection in these last days!
I saw this thing blossom out in all of its beautiful colors. Did you ever see a picture of it? It's a beautiful sight, but a horrible sight. All of the colors of the rainbow you can see in that big ball as it swells out. Then the pressure that it creates following the explosion. It demolishes everything before it. It leaves a crater over 300 feet deep and over 2 miles across. It is capable of destroying a huge metropolis the size of New York City in one blast. Even though there were no freeways in 1929, I saw freeways. I saw them run and jump in their cars to escape, but there was no escape!
I saw the aftermath of this explosion. I saw all of the detail. The Spirit of the Lord picked me up. Like St. Paul, whether in the body or out of the body, I don't know. All I know is, my friends, that God took me, and whisked me across that area where the bomb hit in the midst of that huge metropolis. There was nothing left. The center where it struck was molten, like molten glass. It wasn't until I was carried away beyond the residential area that I began to see any sign of debris.
Finally, I came to what looked similar to snow or sand drifts piled up against the fences and buildings. I saw piles of iron, like broom straw, only much finer than broom straw. It was in piles, and in patterns. Everything completely destroyed! Finally, way, way out, beyond what I felt was the residential area, I began to find signs of human beings, only in pieces. Torsos, heads, hands, arms and legs. They were scattered around everywhere!
The Spirit of the Lord carried me out further. I began to find signs of life. People were running. Everybody was blind. I didn't know in 1929 that if you are 35 miles away from the explosion and you happened to be looking in that direction you would never see again. I didn't know that at that time. Everybody was blind, my friends; they were running and screaming and bumping up against this and that and the other, bouncing back, children blind and screaming, and crying out for their parents, and parents for their children.
The farther I went the more the confusion, and the cries increased! My friends, even tonight, while I am speaking to you, I can hear those cries! I can hear those cries, children and parents screaming out for one another! It was a terrible sight to behold! If I were to live ten-thousand years I know I could just close my eyes, and hear those screams, and see the terror that was written all over the faces of parents and children! A terrible sight indeed!
(NOTE: After seeing this destruction, he then sees another people. He does not understand what he is seeing, but these are the people that "Escape to a Dwelling Place of Zion". He is in truth, seeing an end time vision, surely given to him by Yahweh.)
Then, my friends, the Spirit of the Lord took me, oh, I wonder how fast I was going. I could see the mountains and the hills just passing before me. I came sweeping down over a large valley. In the distance, I could see as I began to approach, a body of people that looked like tens of thousands. I don't know how many were there. It was a sea of people. Long before I got there I could see, as I came down closer, I could discern them. They had their handkerchiefs, they were wiping their tears from their eyes.
Then for the first the first time, I began to hear heavenly anthems. Heavenly anthems, I could hear the Hallelujahs in bass, in tenor, in soprano and in alto voices blending together. That mass of humanity were lifted together by the heavenly music. I came right down in the midst of them. There they were, God's people. This is what I saw, friends. They were all dressed up like they were ready for the Sunday service. Their hair was parted, nothing was disturbed. There was no soil on their shirts, they were cared for so perfectly that everything was in order. Their faces were clean, their clothing was clean. Everything was in order. The only word that you could use to describe them would be meticulous! Glory to God! It is going to be a marvelous thing to be in the hands of God in these last days! Glory to God! What a wonderful thing to be in the hands of God! I say that God is going to protect His people in these last days IF! . . . they live in the Spirit, and walk in the Spirit and keep filled with the Spirit!
THE END OF THE AGE IN SIGHT
The Bible Prophets predicted the whole political alignment of the end time. They predicted that all nations would fit into four spheres of political power. At the vortex of this alignment of power is the miraculously reborn state of Israel - restored to its ancient homeland - in possession of its ancient capital, Jerusalem.
All Bible prophecy that identifies these spheres of power is plotted geographically from the reference point of Israel.
The catalyst that ignites the final global conflict is the sphere of power that is identified in two ways. Sometimes it is identified as "the nations, which are around about" Israel (Ezekiel 36:4). Other times it is called "the King of the South" (Daniel 11:40-45). These refer to all the nations of the Middle East that surround the reborn state of Israel. They are further identified as, ". . . all Edom, who appropriated My (God's) land for themselves as a possession with wholehearted joy and with scorn of soul, to drive it out for a prey." (Ezekiel 38:5) These refer to the nations that surround Israel that took possession of its land.
This sphere of power will also include Persia and the descendents of Cush, Put. Persia is modern Iran. (Ezekiel 38:5) Cush is the father of the black Africans. Put is the father of the peoples that live along the northern coast of Africa who make up Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Mauritania. In other words, the whole confederacy of people that is predicted as alienated and in conflict with the reborn state of Israel is Muslim.
This is exactly the situation that continues to develop in the Middle East. The world has been dragged into the ancient conflict between Isaac and Ishmael in spite of its best efforts to stay out of it. This conflict that has raged between these two half brothers for 4,000 years is destined to ignite the last war of the world, according to the Bible prophets.
Muhammad, a descendant of Ishmael, has brought over one billion people on to his side of this ancient conflict through the religion of Islam. From the time he started the Muslim religion, the dimensions of the conflict began to enlarge. When his followers laid claim to Jerusalem as the their third holiest site, the die was cast for Jerusalem to become the trigger of the war of Armageddon, just as the prophet Zechariah predicted 2500 years ago. Zechariah prophesied "Jerusalem would become a burdensome stone for all the peoples" and that "All nations of the earth will be gathered [for war] because of it." (Zechariah 12:3)
We are eyewitnesses to this taking place right now.
The other major spheres of power that will be drawn into this final war are clearly predicted.
Ezekiel predicts that a nation to the extreme north of reborn Israel will become Israel's arch enemy. It will be a nation with a vast arsenal with which it will arm all of the Muslim nations. Russia is the only nation to the extreme north of Israel. And they are descended from the tribe of Magog through the Scythians, just as Ezekiel predicted. God Himself commands this power from the extreme north to take command of the confederated Muslim forces and lead them in an all out attack against Israel. This attack is the first battle of the war of Armageddon.
The Book of Revelation predicts another sphere of power that will inter this war with 200 million soldiers. This power bloc is called "the Kings of the East". They will move into the Middle East and attack once the war has started. The Bible says they will wipe out a third of the world's population.
The fourth power bloc is the Western force led by a revived form of the Roman Empire. Daniel and the Apostle John both predict this power in great detail. It will begin when a great leader springs up in Rome and takes the strongest 10 Nations of the EU and uses them to form his power base.
As I have said for more than 40 years, there is no hint of the United States being part of this power. As I have presented in my Video, "Where Is America In Prophecy", something catastrophic will soon happen to the US to cause power to shift to Europe. Bible prophecy, which has never missed, clearly predicts this revived Roman Empire from within Europe to be the major power of the west and then the world.
What we are witnessing right now could be the beginning of the decline of the US. Out of the one billion Muslims in the world, about 500 million of them hate us. Osama Bin Laden is the new Saladin to most of them.
I realize that in saying this I will anger many Americans. Jeremiah angered many in Israel with the message God gave him to proclaim. It is not a pleasant message for me. But the burden of the Lord is upon me, and I cannot but speak what I believe He is showing me.
For us who know Jesus Christ, it is not a time to be afraid. Our hope is not in this world, but in the any moment appearing of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Messiah. His footsteps can already be heard as He approaches heaven's door. Keep looking up, for your redemption is very near. The prophetic signs are all before us. You will soon hear His voice calling us up to meet Him.
What does the Bible have to say about America?
Jeremiah 50 & 51, commentedA detailed look at Bible prophecy future of the United States
Many people have puzzled over the seeming absence of the United States in end time Bible prophecy. The United States is currently a prominent, if not the prominent player in world events. And now the United States is recognized as the last remaining global superpower.
Yet the United States seems difficult to identify in Bible prophecy. Which is puzzling because, if, as many agree, the events are soon to come, how could the United States not be a major presence readily identifiable in end time prophecy?
This isn't a recent question. Some 30-plus years ago, author Hal Lindsey speculated on the reason for the apparent low profile of America in things to come:
Excerpts from The Late Great Planet Earth (Hal Lindsey 1970)
The Political Scene ("Polishing the Crystal Ball" -- pages 184-185)
The United States will not hold its present position of leadership in the western world; financially, the future leader will be Western Europe. Internal political chaos caused by student rebellions and Communist subversion will begin to erode the economy of our nation. [Declining] moral principle by citizens and leaders will so weaken law and order that a state of anarchy will finally result. The military capability of the United States, though it is at present the most powerful in the world, has already been neutralized because no one has the courage to use it decisively. When the economy collapses so will the military.
As the United States loses power, Western Europe will be forced to unite and become the standard-bearer of the western world. Look for the emergence of a United States of Europe composed of ten inner member states. The Common Market is laying the groundwork for this political confederacy which will become the mightiest coalition on earth. It will stop the Communist take-over of the world and will for a short while control both Russia and Red China through the personal genius of the Antichrist who will become ruler of the European confederacy.
Look for the limited use of modern nuclear weapons somewhere in the world that will so terrify people of the horrors of war that when the Antichrist comes they will immediately respond to his ingenious proposal for bringing world peace and security from war. This limited use could occur between Russia and China, or upon the continental United States.
Note that last paragraph. It may be worth referring back to as you near the conclusion of these pages.
Hal Lindsey speculated based on what was around him at the time. But here we are, closer than ever to end time events, and the United States is economically robust -- in fact has experienced one of its greatest economic growth periods ever -- and is now the one remaining global military superpower, with troops and armament deployed worldwide. [Note-- Though the country is apparently entering a recession at this time, the underlying economy remains sound.]
So something will reduce the influence of the United States, even eliminate it. And the closer we come to the end times, the more evident it is that whatever will happen will necessarily be sudden. So what will it be?
Does the Bible have anything to say about it? I submit that the answer is certainly, resoundingly, "yes".

...A Vizion Or Dream ???
CHINA AND RUSSIA STRIKE -- April 22, 1996
I saw the president of RUSSIA, a short, chubby man, who said he was the president of CHINA, and two others. The last two also said where they were from, but I did not understand. However, I gathered they were part of Russian controlled territory. The men stepped out of the cloud. The Russian president began to speak to the Chinese one. "I will give you the land with all the people, but you must free TAIWAN of the Americans. Do not fear, we will attack them from behind."
A voice said to me, "Watch where the RUSSIANS penetrate America." I saw these words being written: ALASKA; MINNESOTA; FLORIDA. Then, the man spoke again, "When America goes to war with China, the Russians will strike without warning."
The other two presidents spoke, "We, too, will fight for you." Each had a place already planned as a point of attack. All of them shook hands and hugged. Then they all signed a contract. One of them said, "We're sure that KOREA and CUBA will be on our side, too. Without a doubt, together, we can destroy America."
The president of Russia began to speak insistently, "Why let ourselves be led by the Americans? Why not rule the world ourselves? They have to be kicked out of Europe, too! Then I could do as I please with Europe!"
The man standing beside me asked, "This is what you saw: they act as friends, and say they respect the treaties made together. But everything I've shown you is how it will REALLY happen. You must tell them what is being planned against AMERICA. Then, when it comes to pass, the people will remember the words the Lord has spoken."
Who are you?" I asked. "I am the protector of America. AMERICA'S sin has reached God. He will allow this destruction, for He can no longer stand such wickedness. God however, still has people that worship Him with a clean heart as they do His work. He has prepared a heavenly army to save these people." As I looked, a great army, well armed and dressed in white, appeared before me.
Is America Babylon?
Some people have been writing in the days after the September 11th judgement about the question of whether the event fulfills Revelation 18. Others are denying that the Babylon of Revelation 18 is even speaking about America. While it is true that Revelation 18 is not referring to the destruction of the World Trade Center, it is very clear that the final destruction of America is mainly what Revelation 18 is about.
I say mainly because it is true that Babylon is a system that has been with us since Nimrod. It is the system behind every gentile empire through history. But it also must be a nation, otherwise how can it fall before the Great Tribulation comes? Rev 14 tells us it will:
Rev 14:6-9 6 And I saw another angel  fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [this message is out now, the same I share with people, for which they label me a nut, out of touch with reality]
8 And there followed another angel (2), saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. [this message is clearly about America and her sensual culture which you find exported in every country you visit. This message will come by the end of 2003 and preached from Jerusalem as America will be gone where the Message of the Kingdom has been based till now: Jer 50:28; 51:10]
9 And the third angel (3) followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
So, clearly, before the final Beast system rises and puts its mark on everyone (which is easily provable to happen at the start of the Great Tribulation, or 3½ years into the last 7 years), a nation called Babylon falls first. This can only be the US as Jeremiah 50, 51 and Isaiah 47, 48 and Rev 17, 18 describe beyond mistaking, if one studies it. Now Revelation 17 and 18 specifically are dual, they speak of America and the entire Babylonian sytem. This is why Rev 18 and 14 say "Babylon has fallen (1), has fallen (2)". It's dual, and not limited to one fulfillment. American, called technically a daughter of Babylon by Jeremiah and Isaiah, can only fall once. Then the full and final embodiment of Babylon, The Beast, will fall 3½ years later when HaMashiach vaporizes its armies.
This negates the idea that we do not have to leave any geographic location to come out of Babylon. Jeremiah 50-51 says 5 times to leave Babylon and go to Jerusalem/Zion.
Jer 50:5 They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to YHWH in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
Jer 50:28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of YHWH our God, the vengeance of his temple.
Jer 51:6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of YHWH'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.
Jer 51:10 YHWH hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of YHWH our God.
Jer 51:49-50 49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth. 50 Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember YHWH afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.
Revelation 18 also tells people to leave America before she falls so to not take part in her sins and the judgment on them.
Rev 18:4-5 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
While these certainly work on a spiritual level (stop sinning), this does not negate the pashat, or literal level of interpretation (physical travel). When nuclear bombs are going off, spiritually leaving Babylonby say, keeping Sabbath in obedience to YHWH instead of keeping Sunday in obedience to the Popeis not going to be enough.
Especially when we've already been told what to do. Lot, too, had to physically leave Sodom before her judgment. Did not Yahushua say the last days would be like the days of Lot (and Noah) again? If Lot had stayed in Sodom to witness to the Sodomites, we might instead be told, "Remember Lot", instead of "Remember Lot's wife" in our instructions for these last days (Lk 17:32). If Noah had not obeyed and built an ark so he could leave the land soon to be judged by being under water, he would have died prematurely and ended his testimony as a different kind of example for our admonishment.
However, Lot's wife's testimony teaches us its not enough to just physically leave, but we must really get the love for the world and its ways out of us as well. We need to leave Babylon and get Babylon out of us. Israel, too, had to leave Egypt and get Egypt out of them. On top of all this, Jeremiah 50 and Isaiah 13 speak of America the Babylon's downfall as exactly like Sodom's. The righteous will be fleeing now, just as Lot did then.
Is America really worse than other nations?
Before that can be answered, two principles of judgment that YHWH uses must be understood.
Luke 12:47-48 47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
1 Peter 4:17 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
If we put In God we Trust on our money, have religious freedom to publish the message of the Messiah to the world for 200 years, and we are the richest country in history we better make good on it. But instead we spew our self-glorifying filth into the world and abort babies by the millions.
Other nations do this as well, but just do not know better or could not be expected to do better nationally. This is why ancient Israel was judged and virtually eradicated from remembrance until 1948, and say, ancient Egypt was not and is here intact to this day. Israel was accountable for receiving YHWH's instructions, knowing them and doing them. Egypt was a nation of December 25th sun-god-worshipping pagans, but nothing more was expected from pagans who never received the Torah, or "instructions" of YHWH.
I'm sure until recently, almost every American home had a copy of the Bible, and that carries a responsibility to do it. It's the same Torah that Israel received, so we should have the same punishment, or YHWH owes Israel an apology (not to mention Sodom and Gomorrah). Russia, China and every other communist or Islamic nations keep out the Bible and persecute all Judeo-Christians that try to proselytize. Americans alone have the full scriptures and the free time and prosperity to study them and do them yet do not, and instead do heinous things and teach other nations to do the same. Down here in Costa Rica, they have the Bible, too (although very few decent Bible teachers), but you know what? Abortions are illegal! America is unique in her corruption compared to the good she should be doing and teaching the world. Yes, America is worse than the rest of the world by how YHWH judges, and must be judged before all other nations whose time comes later at the end of the Great Tribulation.
Therefore, it is beyond mistaking what the righteous in America should be planning to do in these days. LEAVE BABYLON! These instructions for our generation have already been written by the holy prophets. We do not have to wait for an angel visit to know what to do, but it will take faith to do it, nevertheless. Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of YHWH. We need to study diligently like never before to find out what to do, and then do it if we do not want to be caught up with this (last) evil generation and stand to see HaMashiach return with our crown.
America in Bible ProphecyPreview - What is America's role in end time Bible prophecy? How will the economy, military preparedness, terrorism, political isolationism, globalism and civil disturbances affect America?
As an American, one of the first questions I have when considering end-time events is, "What role does America play in prophecy?" A study of the Bible does not reveal any clear references to America, although scholars associate it with various images in scripture. Our country appears not to have a decisive or maybe even significant role in end-time events. Because America has been so influential in world events in the past, we can only speculate about what will happen to reduce our national power.
One image in the Bible people associate with America is that of Babylon. Is the Babylon of the last days the ancient site in Iraq? Is it the apostate church? The world system? America? The free market system based on greed, as found in America?
There are many similarities between America and the descriptions of Babylon in Jeremiah 50-51 and Revelation 18. It is possible there will be multiple fulfillments of those passages, with America being only one. If America is the Babylon of Jeremiah 50, a vicious attack from the north will destroy the country (50:3, 9, 41 and 51:48). The only countries north of America are Canada and Russia, and the latter is the better candidate for military aggression against us. If Russia will invade America in the future, it must be before God destroys the Russian army in Israel!
Let us consider other scriptures that might refer to America. In Isaiah 18 there are two identical descriptions of an unidentified nation. In verses 2 and 7, it describes "a people tall and smooth- skinned, . . . a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers." That is a pretty good description of today's America. Verse 7 is a very vague prophecy about that nation sending gifts to the Lord Almighty, to Mount Zion. Even if it does refer to America, it only means that the nation sends gifts. It gives little indication of the country's condition, except that it is aggressive and widely feared. This passage may not even pertain to the end times.
In Jeremiah 30:14, God says to Israel "All your allies have forgotten you; they care nothing for you." Its context shows that the verse applies to the time of "Jacob's trouble." America has been an ally of Israel, but obviously will not stand by Israel in the future.
The scriptures that describe the Russian invasion of Israel, which we will examine in the next chapter, make an interesting statement. "I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands, and they will know that I am the Lord" (Eze 39:6). "Coastlands" in Hebrew refers to coastal areas, islands and continents. This could include America. Our location on a separate continent has enabled us to "live in safety" through many military conflicts during the last century. This verse suggests either a cosmic or nuclear devastation that includes Russia (Magog) and possibly America (coastlands).
In Revelation 8:13 we read, "As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: 'Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!'"
"Midair" is a translation of a compound Greek word. The first part means mid or middle, and the second part applies to anything above the earth, such as air, sky and heavens (including the location of God's throne). This compound Greek word only appears three times in the New Testament, all in Revelation. In addition to Revelation 8:13, it occurs in 14:6 ("angel flying in midair") and 19:17 ("all the birds flying in midair"). So we can safely interpret "midair" as earth's atmosphere or the region just beyond, where satellites orbit.
The national symbol of the United States happens to be an eagle. Could the "eagle that was flying in midair" and heard by lots of people be a description of a Christian satellite broadcast from America?
We often think of America as a Christian nation and for this reason many believe it will continue to be strong until the Lord returns. This country's founders wrote many Christian principles into its law: the equality of men, Judeo-Christian principles of justice, freedom of worship and speech, and others. Americans have supported more missionary and evangelistic efforts than any other people in history. There are churches in virtually every community. We have "In God We Trust" on our money.
But America is not a Christian nation. Political processes run the government, not righteousness. Pleasure motivates the people, not righteousness. Legal precedent and clever lawyers determine justice, not righteousness. The heart of the people determines the heart of the nation, and Americans focus on self, not God. America is a secular nation, based on some Christian principles and containing some Christian citizens. There will be Christians in America as long as there are Christians in the world, but America is not a nation of Christians. God always works with a remnant. He often chooses the few, the weak and the insignificant to demonstrate his own glory.
Like Israel, America may have to experience devastation to purify the remnant. In fact, Israel believed its status as God's chosen nation would protect it from hardship and the false prophets declared that God would not allow anything to happen to the nation. The people believed that right up to the moment they were overrun by the enemy.
One clear principle in scripture is the Law of Accountability: to whom much is given, much is demanded (Lk 12:48). God has blessed America generously. Are we using what he gave us to advance God's kingdom or to satisfy our appetites? America has squandered much of God's blessing on self-indulgence.
My opinion is that America does not play a significant role in end-time prophecy, which means it must fall from world influence
Who Is The Babylon Of Jeremiah 50 ???
WHAT THE PROPHETS SAID ABOUT BABYLON
(The following is NOT written as a result of my own study, but by another. It is the finest list I have ever seen, and whoever did it should be commended. It was posted on my discussion board by "White Knight". I do not know from where it originated. If I ever find out, I will most assuredly give credit here.)

These are but a few of the many parameters listed to help us identify this last great nation that the Lord calls BABYLON THE GREAT. America does now, or is in the process of fulfilling each and every one of them. No other nation upon the face of the earth can fulfill these parameters. AMERICA IS BABYLON THE GREAT.
What does it Represent?
It must be stated that there has never been, nor will there ever be, any Prophecy that will, or can, replace any part of the Word of God as given to us in God's Holy Bible. The Prophecies are a supplement, an additional word from God, that will, if from God, reinforce the message that God has given us in His Bible and by which the Bible itself will be the key to understanding any and all prophecies. Any Prophecy, from any source, that is in conflict with God's Word in the Bible, is not of God.

35. Vision given to Raymond Aguilera on 29 January 1991.
I saw a snow white Mountain Peak with a white Eagle on top . Then the Eagle flew off carrying a large Book . The Eagle had a dome of protection around it , of some kind. There were Evil things trying to knock it out of the sky , but it just kept on flying at a steady speed . As it flew, it collected names of the Christians that were being saved . It just kept flying around the World, and as it flew the Book got bigger or it seemed to fill up with names . Then the vision just stopped.
146. Vision given to Raymond Aguilera on 7 July 1992 at 1:21 PM.
I seean emblem of a black eagle. I have seen it before. It reminds me of the eagle on a brand of beer that is presently being marketed. It's of an eagle with its wings spread out. The feathers are separated. Maybe it's a family crest or an emblem of a country. I sense something about Germany, but I am not really sure. All I can see is its wings and its head pointing to the right. It's a profile of an eagle, or bird of some sort. While I am seeing this I am seeing a flying vulture with his head looking for something to eat.
147. Vision given to Raymond Aguilera on 7 July 1992 at 1:27 PM.
An alligator catching a bird, a large bird. It looks like an Eagle. He catches it in his jaws, and is chewing it.
234. Vision given to Raymond Aguilera on 26 November 1992 at 10:33 AM.
I see the image of an eagle, standing on top of a hill, but it doesn't have wings. It has human arms and hands. The eagle is holding its arms and hands behind him. They are not tied. The eagle is just looking down this hill, and below the hill, I see the Eiffel Tower of Paris. It's a very dark brown eagle.
254. Prophecy given to Raymond Aguilera on 17 December 1992 at 9:59 AM. in English and Non-understandable Tongues.
I am having a vision of someone signing a paper and they're using a golden pen. I don't know what they're signing, but I think it's political. I believe it has to do with power.
I see people standing around this desk watching him sign. I am having a vision of a star and a second vision of a star with a circle. Two stars, one is overlaid, over the other. I am seeing things, but I am not receiving them. Something is blocking My comprehension of what they are. It's hard to explain.
There is a big window behind this desk. It has squares
with curtains. The curtains are gray blue in color and are behind the man that's writing with the golden pen. I don't really know, but I believe its the White House in Washington, DC. I am seeing something unusual and hard to explain. I see a circle with the U.S. Eagle with the stars around the circle. Then it changes into a Satanic pentagram.
I am seeing a large room and in front of this desk there is a rug with a round image of the American Eagle emblem on it.
There are three couches and I have the impression that it was the room that President Kennedy used, for I just had an image of him sitting on one of the couches. The walls are white and there are double doors leading in to the room. There are other large windows to the left of the fire place as you're facing it with two glass doors leading to the outside grounds. I just don't know if it's the White House, but I believe it is. I can see and hear the people talking. It must be a government meeting of some sort. These people have government written all over them. I can't understand what they are saying, but their behavior leads me to believe that they are witnessing the signing of something important. I keep seeing this star. This five pointed star.
Now I see a six pointed star.
(Non-understandable tongues) Vision: I see the center of a single eye deep into the pupil. A piercing looking eye. I keep sensing the name of Israel, Israel, Israel, Israel. Now an emblem which looks similar to the one doctor's use. I don't know if it's the same emblem, but it has a snake wrapped around a staff. I see someone holding an umbrella and the wind is blowing them horizontally.
I see two very thick claws. I think there is a bird, but I can't see the bird. But the claws are very thick. Like what you would see on a statue but its not a statue.
(Non-understandable tongues?) secretary (Non-understandable tongues?)
I hear and I see sirens like you would hear in an air raid. I see an enormous, enormous nuclear blast. I see the ground shaking. I see buildings and roofs flying all over the place. There is this enormous flash, the sound is incredible. My God it's enormous!
I see these fighter jets flying in the sky. I think they have the star with the circle on the tail end of the plane. I see planes landing on an aircraft carrier (Non-understandable tongues?) I see helicopters. I see jets with their wings collapsed, they are folding them and lowering them into the carrier. (Non- understandable tongues?) I see missiles coming out of the ocean and flying into the sky. My God, I think I am seeing the new War.
Back to the Vision
There is another nuclear blast, I see the eye of a Lion. I see people terrified with fear, they're running and hiding. They're confused and don't know what to do. They're crying. They're screaming. There is total chaos. They don't know where to run or hide. I can see this steady marching of this army and they are marching without a wasted movement, approaching this town. The people are going crazy. They're screaming and praying to their God.
Back to the Vision:
These people know they are going to die. I see them praying. I see them crying. Women with their kids and husbands with their wives in each others arms totally and completely terrified. There is rubble all over and all kinds of noises, sounds, and bewilderment. (My God, do I need to see any more, please release me!) (Non-understandable tongues)
Back to the Vision:
I see another nuclear blast, I can see it from the sky looking down. Its enormous, but I mean it's enormous! I don't know where it went off.
I see this burning cross made of branches of a tree. Someone set it on fire. (Non- understandable tongues?) seeds (Non-understandable tongues?)
Remember My Words My Children. Remember My Words. This is your Father Jehovah with the Son and the Holy Spirit. Read the Bible, and Study. Look for your brothers and sisters in the streets. Repent of your sins. For you will see. For you will live through what My Prophet has seen. Make yourselves strong. Be wise! Read the Bible. Look for My Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. For We will protect you through the trials, through the tribulations. No matter what happens, never forget your God, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. For I am bringing to a close this little Planet with its evil ways. Remember My Words. "When the Leaves of the Fig Tree change," " Like a thief in the Night," so say it, Jehovah.

I saw an eagle flying with a missile of some sort coming from behind and shooting over the eagle's head in-between it's wings.

by Rev. Jack Barr
The Prophecies about Eagles seem to be showing us three different Eagles. An Eagle which represents God's servant or angel, An Eagle which represents Germany, and an Eagle which represents the United States of America..
Prophecy 35, 342, 1177
The prophecies show us a White Eagle sitting on top of God's mountain. Then the Eagle flies around the earth with the Book of Life, which is being filled with the names of the saved of the Lord. It flies around and around the earth. It will continue this flight until the Book of Life has been filled, until the last name has been entered. Who the Eagle is does not matter. We are shown in the Bible that some of God's living creatures have the face of the Eagle. (Ezekiel 1:10, 10:14, Revelation 4:7) Revelation speaks of one of the living creatures as a flying Eagle.
Ezekiel 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side; and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
Ezekiel 10:14 And every one had four faces; the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third, the face of a lion, and the fourth, the face of an eagle.
Revelation 4:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face like a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
A large Eagle flying while carrying a piece of communion bread in its mouth, and a flying Eagle that cast a white shadow. The prophecies have repeatedly stressed the importance of having communion every day, to remember what Jesus did for us. The Eagle brings communion with God to anyone who will accept it. To Talk with God. To worship God. To REMEMBER EVERY DAY how much God loves us by what Jesus did for us on the cross. This is having communion with God. The bread and wine is only to help us to remember what Jesus did for us. The kind of bread used is not important. The kind of wine or grape juice or any kind of drink used is not important. For even if you have no food at all, you can have communion with God without it. God sees your heart and accepts whatever you have to offer. Remember the widdow who put in her two mites, all that she had. Remember how God (Jesus) took notice of this gift from her heart. (Mark 12:41-44)
Mark 12:41-44 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury; and many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I sway unto you, This poor widow hath cast more in than all they who have cast into the treasury; For all they did cast in of their abundance, but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
When you offer whatever you have to God, in rememberance, be assured that God Will Accept it in the spirit in which you offer it. Anyone who tells you that you can only take of communion in a church, lies. Anyone who tells you that only an ordained priest can give you communion, lies. For the Bible says different, and the Bible IS THE WORD OF GOD. The act of communion is santified by what is in your heart, and not by what is in his heart.
And of course, God's Eagle would cast a white shadow because there is no darkness with God.
Prophecy 146, 330, 448
Here is another Eagle. This Eagle is Germany. The Black Eagle has been a symbol of Germany since the 1400's. It is pictured on their flags and emblems exactly as described in this prophecy, with the wings outspread, feathers separated and the head facing to it's right as a profile of the Eagle.. And yes, there is a brand of German beer that uses this same basic symbol on their bottles. There is also the "Order of the Black Eagle" which started in Prussia. This is a hereditary prerogative of a Sovereign or head of a Royal Dynasty in Europe since the 1800's. Only the rulers and their families are allowed to wear the badge which has four Eagles of the above description separated by four blue ribbons, forming a circle. This brings us to understand that the Black Eagle in this prophecy represents the German rulers and not the German people themselves.
The snake of prophecy 330 is Satan and the Eagle is Germany. Satan is controlling Germany for it is one of the ten nations of the anti-christ.
The dark Eagle of prophecy 448 is Germany. This Eagle is attacking the horse and the horse is trying to escape. The Eagle is not doing much damage but the horse is afraid.
The alligator is Mexico, and when the United States (Eagle) is involved with war, they will attack or help someone attack the United States. When you look at the prophecies on the Alligator, you will see that the alligator will be destroyed (killed) by the Beast after this attack on the United States.
Prophecy 234, 632
The Eagle without wings is the Eagle of Germany. This Eagle will be free to act, but will choose to stand and watch it's long time historic enemy, France, being destroyed. This Eagle is very calm for it believes that it will not be hurt. But they too will be taken down by the anti-christ after they have served his purpose. While it did not instigate this attack, it knew that it was coming but would not warn France.
Prophecy 912, 254, 362, 428, 766, 857, 633
The prophecy 912 shows us that the United States will come under total bondage to the anti-christ and Satan.
Then prophecy 254 gives a description of the "Oval Office" of the United States White House, as it will look AFTER being remodeled almost one year after this prophecy was given. The White House is the home and offices of the President of the United States. The view of the remodled room was shown in Life Magazine after it was remodled.
The circle with the U.S. Eagle with the stars around the circle is located in the center of the room. This emblem represents the United States of America. That it changes into a Satanic pentagram shows that on the signing of this paper that the Government of the United States will be Completely controlled by Satan.
The paper being signed by the president of the United States is shown to be a Satanic command by the seeing again of the five pointed star (pentagram). The sudden view of the six pointed star and the name Israel, shows us that this paper is a guarantee that the United States will not interfere with the attack that will happen on Israel.
The United States leaders do not realize that they are also signing their own death call for the United States of America. The war that starts there quickly spreads all across the world and the United States will come under nuclear attack that has been instigated by the Antichrist.
This Eagle of Prophecy 362 is the United States. It stands there watching the start of wars after signing the papers of prophecy 254. It sees them starting and expanding to include more nations but still does nothing because it thinks they will not be touched. They have the promise of Satan who is a lier.
The Eagle (U.S.) will be taken by supprise (prophecy 766) when the missles come at him for he believed himself safe. Then he will launch it's own missles. We see by the prophecy 857 that the U.S. is trying to do a ballencing act, trying to protect itself from it's attacker while still trying to stay out of the world war that is approaching.
A vision of an Eagle carrying a brief case in prophecy 428. The briefcase represents business. The Eagle (United States) will be trying to carry on business as usual, unaware or refusing to acknowledge that everything is collapsing around it. (Babylon has fallen Revelation 18:9-11)
Revelation 18:9-11 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Stranding afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
They will fail in this attempt and in turn will be attacked by at least six nations with both nuclear wepons and ground troops.
The United States will be severly hurt by these attacks and will be brought down as a super power. It will not be totally destroyed but will never again rise to power.
During this war against the United States, the burning of the cross make of tree branches tells us that the non-Christians in the United States will be led to believe that the war is the fault of the Christians and they will attack and persecute all Christians during this war.
The shield is the United States and the hammer and sickle is Russia. The candle is God who will bring these two nations against each other for judgement on both nations.
This is showing the United States. It looks calm, strong, prosperous, and at peace on the surface, but inside the nation is being torn apart with the whirlwind of Satan.
Rev. Jack Barr
Is America the Babylon of Jeremiah 50,51
and the Mystery Babylon of Revelations 18?
|Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."
Ecclesiastes 8:5 "...A wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgement."
In order to fully comprehendthe above title let us consider the following eight facts of Jeremiah 50, 51 and Revelations 18
Jeremiah 50:12 "Your mother shall be sore cofounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed..."
Fact No. 1 Ancient Babylon had no mother, only a father and founder. Nimrod which means, "we will revolt." America's mother is the United Kingdom and she will be confounded at America's destruction."
Jeremiah 50:12 "... behold the hindermost of the naitons shall be wilderness, a dry land, and a desert."
Fact No. 2 The word hindermost in this verse means the last out of all the nations. Ancient Babylon was the third world empire. At the time of John's writing in the book of Revelation, John under inspirations of the Holy Spirit penned these words in Revelation 17:10. "And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet to come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space." At the time of John's writing the book of Revelation the king that was in power was operating through the Roman Empire. Five had already fallen these are in order as they fell: the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medo-Persia, and Greece. The one that is yet to come is the revived Roaman Empire this verse could not be talking about them, only America is the hindermost of nations.
Jeremiah 50:23 "How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!"
Fact No. 3 A hammer is symbolic in this verse to the ability of a nation to shape. Is this not what we do with a hammer? A carpenter uses a hammer to build houses, buildings, ect. A blacksmith uses a hammer to shape metal. If you look carefully at our nation through her foreign polocies, you will see a nation that has dominated the whole Earth as predicted in this verse. On the other hand if you look at Ancient Babylon you will see a nation that was only able to control just a small portion of the Middle East through a period of only 70 years.
Jeremiah 50:32 "And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him."
Fact No. 4 The Bible says in this verse that Babylon will be destroyed by a fire. On page 299 of Werner Keller second revised edition book. The Bible as History, it states this, "This conquest of Ancient Babylon by Medes and the Persians in 538 B.C. however did not follow the normal pattern: it was without a parallel of practice of the Ancient Orient. For this time there were no columns of smoke rising from behind shattered walls, no temples or palacesrazed to the ground, no house plundered no man was butcheredor impaled." Jeremiah describes this Babylon as being destory with fire. This Babylon in Jeremiah 50:32 will be destroyed by fire.
Revelation 18:3 "...and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance or her delicacies."
Fact No. 5 This would be definitely described America. All nations of the Earth are enguged in import and export with America. Now many people confuse the Babylon of Revelations 17 with the Babylon of Revelation 18.Revelation 17 describes a religious system or false church. Revelation 17:9 the Bible describes this system to sit on seven mountains. This is the Vatican, which sets on seven hills, has a land mass of only 0.4 square kilometers and has no shiping ports or otherwise the merchants ofthe whole earth could not trade with her. This eleminates the Catholic Church whose headquaters is the Vatican City but would perfectly describe America today.
Revelation 18:7 "How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow."
Fact No. 6 On October 6, 1996 Bill Clinton made this statement, " There are no nuclear missiles pointed at the children of the United States tonight." Here is a perfect example of how the politicians see the future. In Revelation 18:7, the Bible states that Mystery Babylon thinks that she shall see no sorrow. She says, "I sit as a Queen." On April 20th, 1998 an ABC News report with Peter Jennings said this, "U.S. and Russia still have in their nuclear arsenal 34,000 nuclear weapons. Consider that the U.S. keeps 1,000 nuclear warheads pointed at Russia (to destroy every target in the old Soviet Union 4 times over), and Russia keeps 1,100 nuclear weapons pointed at the U.S. The 1,000 nuclear warheads pointed at Russia is a combined explosive power equal to 40,000 bombs dropped on Hiroshima."
Now I would like to ask slick Willie a question. If there are no nuclear weapons pointed at the children of U.S. tonight as was stated on October 6, 1996. Would that statement be true today or was that just a symbolic gesture to make the American people think they shall see no sorrow? The reason that I ask this question so bluntly is our President, Bill Clinton has to have the question asked in the right manner in order to respond accordingly and also not to leave him any room to duck the question. Although Washington boasts of the symbolic gesture of no nuclear missiles pointing at the U.S. tonight, this is at best misleading and it would take less than ten seconds to re-program those missiles. In a recent issue of The Washington Times, circulation date July 6, 1998, page A-17 Michael Waller, vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council in Washington, D.C. made these insightful Facts known, in an article entitled, "No nukes pointed this way? Think again." Mr.Waller in a superb and professional article noted that after checking the White House Internet Website, he found in Mr. Clinton's official speeches that at least 131 times, Mr. Clinton has claimed that the American peoples are free from the threat of a nuclear missile attack from Russia. And in a quarter of the time at least 32 speeches, President Clinton stated that no country anywhere was aiming nuclear missiles at the American people. Even our defense secretary William Perry jumped upon the peace/non-proliferation band wagon with his speech in April 1996 to the peoples of George Washington University in which he stated this, Today, we do not need a national missile defense system because our nation is not now threatened by missiles of mass destruction. It is apparent by the ABC News report called, A Closer Look which aired on April 20th, 1998 that the condition of no nuclear weapons pointing at the children of the U.S. has changed since Bill Clinton made this boast of seeing no sorrow on Oct. 6, 1996. Or as Mr. Waller asks in his July 6, 1998 article, is this a slip of the tongue? I believe it is time the President leave the Pepto - Bismol, (that is the soothing calming agents) out of his speeches and tell the American people the plain old honest truth.
Revelations 18:8 " Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her."
Fact No. 7 As I said earlier Ancient Babylon was not destroyed with fire. This Babylon will be destroyed with fire. In Hal Lindsey's new book, Apocalypse Code on page 139 it states this, " several nuclear scientists theorize that 20 to 30 nuclear warheads detonated within close proximity of time and space in mid-America could cause a fire storm that would sweep from the Appalachians to the Rocky Mountains." This friend, is how America could burn in one day.
Fact No. 8 In 538 B.C. Ancient Babylon was conquered. John wrote the book of Revelation in 90-93 A.D. some 629 years later. If this verse in Revelation 18:8 was referring to Ancient Babylon, John would merely be reading from the recorded text of Ancient History. This Babylon in Revelation 18 is a future Babylon and I believe without a doubt this Babylon to be America. Now that I have established this Babylon to be America I would like to do a timeline of when this could possibly happen.
When you combine Jude 14 and Zechariah 14: 1-4, you will see the picture of Christ coming at the end of the tribulation with 10,000 of his saints to execute judgment upon those who fight against Israel. Now in Zechariah 14:12, the Bible states this, " And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth."
On page 110 of Hal Lindsey's book Apocalypse Code, he offers this information. Israel has developed more neutron bombs than any other nation in the world. A neutron bomb will destroy everything that is a carbon bearing life form such as humans but will not destroy the buildings and the structures. Now why is Israel developing this bomb? Israel knows that the next war will probably require nuclear force and they know that they will need some type of protection from nuclear radiation. Israel also knows that they will probably need these buildings to protect them from radiation because they will probably be fighting a war that will require a bomb detention in close proximity to their beloved Promised Land. This is why Israel has developed more neutron bombs then any other nation. (Trinity's new Atomic Bomb Movie which documents our Government's nuclear tests, makes these facts known.)
A 21-Kiloton bomb instantly raises the temperature to 10 million degrees. It also produces a force of one million pounds of pressure. This is how their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet. This battle is also at the end of this seven-year tribulation period.
To understand when this could possibly happen, Please let us consider the secret codes of the Bible. Michael Drosnin's new book The Bible Code, will shed some light on this subject. There is a phenomenon called equidistant letter sequencing. This is where people have written a computer program to search for words or phrases in the Torah of the Holy Scriptures. When Harold Gans heard of this code in the Torah, he wrote a program of his own to try and discredit it. Harold Gans was a Senior Code Breaker for the National Security Agency. After 440 hours of exhaustive work Mr. Gans was convinced of the validity of the secret hidden codes of the Torah. This program works by typing in a word or phrase you want to search. If the word or phrase appears every 50 letters for example then that word or phrase is a legitimate code. There are over 1,000 world Events that the Torah codes have predicted. Among these are Anwar Sadat, Yitzhak Rabin assassination, The Kennedy assassination, World War II, Watergate, the Holocaust, Hiroshima, the Gulf War, the Great Depression, Hitler, Nazi, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Rembrandt, Picasso, Thomas Edison, the light bulb, Einstein, Lincoln, Booth, Murrah Building. It even predicted the great earthquake in 1976 in China, which killed 800,000 people. The Mezuzah which is one of the most cherished text of the Jews has encoded in it the year that World War II would start. Also encoded in the Mezuzah text is the word Armageddon with the years 2000-2006. There was also encoded in the Mezuzah text, the phrase Atomic Holocaust with World War also as well as the years 2000 and 2006. Mr. Drosnin searched for the next 100 years to see if any other years were encoded with the phrase Atomic Holocaust and the years 2000 or 2006. There were none. It is also worth mentioning that these computer programs have been run on different Jewish writing such as War and Peace. Only within the Torah of our Holy Bible are these codes found. So if the year 2006 is the year at the end of the tribulation that is encoded to have a nuclear war. Then that would leave the year 2000 as to when America could expect a nuclear attack from Russia. Now since the Jewish year begins in September, this would mean that from September 1999 until August 31st 2000, we can expect a World War that would include a nuclear war. Please consider the following facts on the horrors of nuclear war;
- In August 1945 112,000 were instantly killed by the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
- By the end of 1945 the death toll was 140,000.
- Five years later in 1950 the death toll was 227,000.
Is the cold war over? Can we as a free Society trust Yeltsin? Is the communists party dead as we have been lead to believe, or is a more sinister organization pushing the buttons and pulling the strings of the Russian Republic? Colonel Stanislav Lunev, the highest ranking military official to defect from the former Soviet Union recently wrote the book Through the Eyes of the Enemy. In this insightful book, Mr. Lunev details how Russia is still preparing for war with the U.S. why Yelstin cannot be trusted, and the Russian Mafia are the real movers and shakers of the old Soviet Union. Consider these following facts of the former Soviet Union:
- Boris Yeltsin has ordered the GRU to make commercial and industrial espionage, it's primary mission. pg. 12
- About three hundred of Russia's criminal gangs operate internationally. Twenty-six operate in the United States. pg. 15
- That the GRU (Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoe Upravlenie) or military espionage agents are preparing nuclear bombs to look like bricks, logs, rocks, portable coolers and are preparing drop sites with probable dentition sites in the Shenandoah Valley and the Hudson River Valley. pgs. 25,68
- An accidental release of a cloud of Anthrax that killed dozens in 1979 in Sverdlovsk was covered up by then chief of the Communist Party, a Mr. Boris Yeltsin. pgs 28-29
- Lenin ordered intelligence officers to go to small towns and stir up civilian insurrections then send the military to kill everyone in sight. pg. 66
- Almost all of the anti-war propaganda in the U.S. was sponsored by the GRU and the KGB at a cost to the Soviet Union at one billion dollars. pg 78
- The GRU has a yellow list (that is a list of hundreds of American agencies and businesses that have already been compromised by the GRU). These are just a few: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, National Security Agency, NASA, Bocing, Martin Marietta, GE, Congressional Printing Office and others. Pgs. 132-133
- To increase violence in the U.S. by paying selected Hollywood producers to produce violent and offensive films. pgs. 169-170
- Providing financial support to the most aggressive and violent minority leaders. pg 170
Can we trust a nation or leader who since WWII has tried to circumvent the U.S.? Is a piece of paper or handshake sufficient to protect us from Soviet aggression? I think not! After all, in Jeremiah 50:3, 41 the Bible declares through his prophet Jeremiah that he will cause a great nation from the north to make desolate, Babylon. Russia is just north of the U.S. and could dovetail this text with a perfect fit. If America were to get involved in a military conflict with Russia, then due to the fact that Russia's economy is equal to the size of Denmark's economy, Russia would be forced to resort to their nuclear arsenal first and not stage a prolonged war. After considering the facts, do you believe a treaty is the best way to secure our freedom or should we secure our freedom through intercession prayer and military strength? I think the latter is the most appropriate answer!
Regarding NATO, Alexander Lebed stated, " no one will push Russia into a corner." Lebed also commented on the proposed expansion of Poland, Czeck Rep., and Hungary that," such expansion could trigger World War III . The U.N. was started in 1945 to combat communism with 51 original members. In 1945 seventy percent of the world's population was represented by the U.N. In 1994 99.9 percent of the world's population was represented by the U.N. This expansion puts the U.N. all the way to the Russian border and they feel threatened and they have said they will use nuclear force to defend their territory. On April 30th, 1998 the U.N. took a vote and the proposed U.N. expansion was approved. This could be the catalyst that will provoke Russia to strike America. During World War II the Japanese said if we built the 1,500-mile stretch of highway in Alaska, they would consider it an act of war because Alaska was the shortest distance between the U.S. and Japan. This was on our own soil, in retaliation Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Now we are pushing the U.N. to the border of Russia so our defense contractors can sell U.S. military hardware to Hungary, Poland, and the Czeck Republic only to close our beloved bases in America as John Warner said on April 30th, 1998.
Now what can we do? If you are a Christian you can watch and pray that you may be counted worthy to escape this terrible day. If you are not a Christian, I invite you to ask the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into your Heart. Confess to others that you are a Christian for you overcome by the word of your testimony. Follow Jesus in water baptism, as this is an open confession of your faith. Last but not least get involved in local fundamental Bible believing Church so that you may grow in God's grace and care. For God's word says in Hosea 4:6 that, " My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge... "
