NEW DISCOVERY: Erdogan Is Now Reviving The Religion Of The Antichrist That Will Enable The Islamic Mahdi To Declare “I Am God!”

By Theodore and Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Shockingly, while the world is asleep, here comes Erdogan of Turkey referring to Islamic theology that specifically declares man to becoming God and no one was paying attention. To explain all this we need to show that the theological interests of the soon to be revealed Antichrist of Turkey and explain how accurate were our predictions regarding the rising star Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

So lets begin the very interesting journey. Well, to start off with, for several months now, we revealed through several articles the necessity to focus that the future Antichrist as most likely being Turkish and specifically an adherer of Sufi Islam. But even more specifically on November 28th we stated that he would be magnatized to the specific teaching of the famous Sufi mystic Jalal al-Din Rumi. We concluded this crucial issue since Sufi Islam adheres to a theology called Fana in which man can declare himself to being God which is the signatute of none other than Rumi’s theology. How else can Antichrist declare himself “I am God”?

So low and behold this Wednesday December 17th, 11 days later after we presented our findings, Erdogan of Turkey revealed his fascination with, you guessed it, none other than whom we predicted: Jalal al-Din Rumi.

This is extremely significant. Erdogan wants to warrant himself major titles and he will never be able to do so unless he finds a theological justification within the theology of Islam which at face value rejects that man can be deified. But imbedded within Islam, the act of a man declaring “I am God,” is in fact an Islamic belief, and is right in line with what St. Paul warned about, a verse which mystified theologians from time immemorial, that the Antichrist “as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). The reason Islam zigzags in this theology is simple: to reject the deity of Christ but only insert this hidden theology when necessary to become Antichrist; to deny the essence of who Christ is and at the same time to replace Christ.

We in fact even illustrated, before Erdogan’s coming out of the closet this very issue, by quoting the most infamous of Islamic Sufi writers, Rumi, when he wrote of how the goal of the Sufi is to become divine via Fana:

Remember the famous utterance of al-Hallaj, “I am God.” People think that to say “I am God” is a claim of great pretense and spiritual arrogance. It is actually a claim of extreme humility. “I am God” means “I do not exist.” He is all, everything is He, existence is God’s alone. I am without existence, pure non-existence. I am nothing.” “I am God” is not a claim of great pretension, it is a claim of extreme humility. There is more humility in this than any supposed claim to greatness, but people do not understand the inner meaning. When a man acknowledges his servitude to God, he is aware of his being a servant. He may see himself as a devoted servant of God, but he still sees himself and his own actions as apart from the one reality of God. He is not drowned in the Ocean of Divine Unity. Drowned is he in whom there is not separate motion or mobility. Drowned is he whose movement is the movement of the water. And so it is with the enlightenment ones, those who declares, “I am God.” Anyone who says “I am the servant of God” asserts the reality of two existences, one for himself and the other for God. But he who says “I am God” — and has realized the deepest levels of unity within his being — has seen through the illusion of his existence. He knows from the experience of unity that his own separate existence is nothing but an illusion. Knowing that, he casts its former selfhood upon the winds of oblivion. (Rumi, Hearts bear witness one to another, in The Complete Discourses of Jalal al-Din Rumi, discourse 11, p. 75, ed. Louis Rogers)

This is the first time in history that this connect was made and now, it is no surprise to us that this Wednesday, the president of Turkey, Erdogan, praised Rumi’s work, revealing that he himself is not only Sufi but that he also believes in Fana “the art annihilation and becoming God himself”. Why else would Erdogan praise Rumi’s work The Masnavi, saying “A work can live for more than seven centuries only if it is written with love”. The Masnavi is amongst Rumi’s most popular works, and it is in this very book that the idea of man becoming divine is adulated. He praises the Sufi declaration “I am the Truth!” saying, “Mansur’s ‘I am the Truth!’ was purest light” (Masnavi, 2.307, trans. Mojaddedi)

When Christ said “I am The Truth” He was declaring Himself to be God Almighty. Likewise in Sufi Islam, this also exists, yet mimicing Christ. In Sufi Islam for one to exclaim, “I am the Truth,” is to say “I am God!”

According to Islamic scholar, Jawid Mojaddedi, a professor at Rutger’s University, “The ‘I’ in ‘I am the Truth’ is God“. (See Mojaddedi’s translation of Rumi’s Masnavi, book 2, in his notes to pages 19-23) So, when the Sufi says, “I am the Truth!” he is declaring himself to be God and is why it is most adequate to say that the Islamic Antichrist will be Sufi, taking upon himself the titles of Christ in his attempt to vanquish Christ.

It is this very book, the Masnavi, that Erdogan praised just a few days ago, and it is this very book that affirms man’s ability to become divine. Erdogan is praising Rumi with the intention of reviving the Ottoman Empire, for there cannot be a restoration of the Turkish power without a revival in Sufi religion, the spiritual foundation for the Ottoman power, and in addition, to numerous Islamic empires.

In the speech in which Erdogan praised Rumi two days ago, he also praised Sufi mystic Ahmed Yesevi, and Muslim war leaders such as Saladin and Alp Arslan:

If we have a homeland and a flag today, and if we live in an independent country, all fraternally, this is thanks to believers like Mevlana [Rumi], Ahmed Yesevi, as well as our generals such as Saladin (of Ayyub dynasty) and Alparslan (of Seljuk dynasty)

But in order to comprehed Erdogan’s fascination with all this requires a little lesson on history. Firstly, Saladin, like Erdogan, was very interested in Sufi Islam. What is worthy of our notice is the fact that both Saladin and Alp Arslan were involved in major and very significant victories over Christians.

Saladin, who became an idol for the Muslim pantheon, ravished Egypt in 1177 with twenty five thousand men, and as they lay destruction on lands before them and decapitated many, they made their way to Jerusalem–that city on a hill.

What man would raise his sword to scatter such a mob of ruffians? A leper named Baldwin IV, with only six hundred knights rushed their fortress in Ascalon and came before Saladin who now stood stricken with surprise that a man so inexperienced in the ways of war executed such a bold move. The men stood ready in Montigisard, and with eyes locked upon the enemy made their charge, led by St. George himself as the warriors themselves attested. A thousand Mameluke fighters, brave and vicious, surrounded Saladin to protect him, but before their faces were seen descending swords manned by fearless soldiers, striking down hard upon their armour, leaving most of them dead and Saladin vulnerable. He fled, and Jerusalem–that City of God–was saved. Carroll, A History of Christendom, vol. iii, ch. iii, p. 121; see also John France, War Cruel and Unremitting, in Thomas F. Madden’s Crusades, part 3, p. 68)

Saladin tried to lay siege to the Crusader castle of Kerak. The eyes of the Christians could not turn without seeing sharp and rugged swords and to and fro, being propelled at them by the warriors of the Muslims. So many were these devastating rocks that the men dared not to raise a hand, nor lift up their heads in utter fear of being struck dead. Some Christian soldiers attempted to setup a war machine, and as they were assembling the device a wave of stones were hurled at them. They fled with the fear of death in that somber moment. The unceasing barrage of these stones compelled the men to shake in fear, and even those who retired to the innermost parts of the citadel, under the deepest seclusion, were seized by the harrowing sound of the torrent of stones and taken by horror. But the Muslims were again repulsed by the same leper, Baldwin IV. *Carroll, A History of Christendom, vol. iii, ch. iv, p. 123; William in John France, War Cruel and Unremitting, in Thomas F. Madden’s Crusades, part 3, p. 70*

The success of the Christians would soon turn to their misery; Jerusalem, which was under the hands of the Saints, was now taken by the followers of Muhammad, with Saladin at their head. It is crucial to point out that Saladin was a type of Antichrist, since he called himself the “Saviour,” and “the corrector of the world and of the law.” (Butcher, The Story of the Church of Egypt, vol. ii, part ii, ch. xxii, p. 107)

Erdogan’s most recent title is “Salah ad-Din, known in the West as Saladin.” Erdogan wants to be another Saladin, and thus he wants to be another “Savior,” taking Egypt and then Jerusalem for the glory of the Ottoman Empire. It is crucial that Christ does not only come to Jerusalem (Zechariah 14) but also will come into Egypt (Isaiah 19) to combat the Antichrist there as well and save the Copts of Egypt.

1411677028_86_asdasdq

The Christians attempted to repulse Saladin, in what is called the Third Crusade, but when they had lost the Battle of Hattin in 1187, the power of the Crusades began to crumble and their fall became inevitable. (Hilaire Belloc, The Crusades, ch. i, p. pp. 3-4)

When he invaded Egypt, he founded many khanaqas, or Sufi sanctuaries. And after he invaded Jerusalem, in order to replace the authority of the Latin Catholic patriarch in the Holy City, he founded the Sufi al-Khanqah al-Salahiyya Mosque. (See Spencer, The Sufi Orders in Islam) In other words, Saladin wanted to replace Christianity with Sufism, and so the revived Ottoman Empire will want to do the same thing.

Alp Arslan, the other Muslim sultan who Erdogan praised, was the one who truly commenced the beginning of the Turkish Empire. He was of the race of the Seljuk, Tatar Turks who came from Central Asia, and he defeated the Christians in the infamous Battle of Manzikert, a victory which would be the catalyst to the Turks invading much of Asia Minor and forming the Turkish Empire that would really be the precursor to the Ottoman Empire.

In the Battle of Manzikert, Christian civilization itself was fighting for its very existence. The Christian was armed with extensive knowledge in tactical warfare, while his enemy was skillful in the riding of the horse and the bow. The Turks proceeded with their common tactic of attacking and running, which exhausted their Christian enemies. Over-pressed by continuous movement and heat, the Christian emperor Romanus had no other choice but to retire to his camp. As they were marching back, his force became confused and soon fragmented. Many of his reserve soldiers broke away, and were now cut off from the center of the army, leaving the whole force completely vulnerable to the elusive Turk.

2014100203

Is Erdogan the “Fierce-looking master of intrigue” (Daniel 8:23)?

The commander of this reserve ran off from the field of battle solely to destroy the reputation of Romanus by saying he had lost the battle. When sundown came, and during the night, the Seljuks took advantage of the opportunity: the Christian soldiers were massacred. The barbarians surrounded the emperor, killed his horse and then wounded him. He was taken prisoner, his jewels were stolen, his purple taken, and all of Asia Minor lay open to the Turk. Romanus was led to the Turkish divan where he was presented before that most sinister appearing figure, Alp Arslan. He was commanded to bow down to the Mongol savage and kiss the ground before him. He reluctantly obeyed, and as his lips touched the floor the foot of the tyrant was planted on his neck.

The Turks overran Asia Minor, the nursery of Christianity, and in less than a lifetime the whole vast district of its interior was ruined. (Belloc, The Crusades, ch. ii, pp. 11-16; Gibbon, Decline and Fall, vol. v, ch. lvii, p. 1037; Moczar, Seven Lies about Catholic History, ch. iii, p. 63; John France, “Impelled by the Love of God”, in Thomas F. Madden’s The Crusades, pp. 34-35)

After the battle, Alp Arslan declared

Henceforth all of you be like lion cubs and eagle young, racing through the countryside day and night, slaying the Christians and not sparing any mercy on the Roman nation. (Nicolle, Manzikert 1071, p. 92)

This tyrant who slaughtered countless Christians, and called for the massacre of Christians, is the same tyrant who Erdogan is now praising. What makes Alp Arslan even more significant in our observation of Erdogan, is the fact that Erdogan identifies himself as Alp Arslan.

Erdogan wants to be the next Alp Arslan, and this desire is indicated by his recent actions. For example, in a 2012 conference Erdogan urged Turkish Muslim youths to not only look to 2023 as the year in which Turkey will be a “great nation, a great power”, but also 2071, representing the anniversary year for the Battle of Manzikert in 1071, in which Alp Arslan defeated the Christian Byzantine Empire.

 

Furthermore, in the same conference, Erdogan attired himself in the traditional white Islamic robes, purposely emulating Alp Arslan when he wore white in the Battle of Manzikert and told his soldiers:

“Here is not a sultan commanding, nor an army being commanded, for today I am only one of you a ghazi [Muslim warrior] with you. He who follows me and gives himself to God Most High, he will gain Paradise and booty. He who goes away, the Fire [of Hell] and ignominy are obligatory for him.” (8)

Notice the speech of Alp Arslan, how he says that those who will follow him will have salvation, and those who don’t will burn in hell. What Alp Arslan essentially was doing was identifying himself with Christ, Who said that He was the only way to salvation.

This is what the Islamic Antichrist will do in the end, making himself as the means to salvation. But what he will also do is ascend Islam up to the depths of power, especially Sufi Islam, in order for it to be the ideological force of the Ottoman Empire.

Regardless to all this, in the end Christian civilization will prevail. Cheer up.

    After reading the other article new discovery … and now this one … interesting, informative and a good read indeed! Thanks!

  • susan

    Thank you Walid. As you have opened up the scriptures to a church with scales over their eyes, so are events happening exactly as you told us the Bible said. I’m worried about all the Christians trapped over there. It’s so disheartening to see the apathy of our churches towards their plight. I think I’d have better luck with lottery scratch-offs than asking churches to include them in their donations. :·{

    • Fhr68

      Isn’t it disheartening Susan, you mention about the Christians and they don’t even bat an eyeball. It doesn’t register at all. Some don’t even say as much as we will pray. And others curse Israel it’s all their fault, just as The Lord said ” my people will perish from lack of knowledge.” I need a second job.

        O. Unfortunately I’m still waiting to recover so I can get a new first! I can’t wait to see what that’s going to be. Please spend time with your famil:)

    Excellent work Walid. You continue to reveal to us what is happening with great accuracy right from scripture combined with compelling historical research. These are some very interesting days that we are living in. Nevertheless, you are right when you say “Regardless to all this, in the end Christian civilization will prevail. Cheer up.” Thank God for the continuous great hard and honest work that you and your son do.

  • Eric

    Mr. Shoebat, with the dates that Erdrogan has cited–2023 and 2071–should we pay attention to those? I mean, by the time 2071 rolls around, I’ll be 78, but none the less, should those two particular dates be on our watch? Of interesting note, I believe it was Sir Isaac Newton who predicted that Armageddon would occur in 2066. 2071 seems very close to that. I’ve always felt that the idea that Jesus may be coming in 2,10, or even 20 years to be a little bit too soon. God seems to work in decades and centuries rather than individual years. Do you think I may be on to something here?

    • Grandmere

      Sir Isaac Newton was an enigma. He had some heterodox beliefs and was obsessed with end times. It may have driven him mad. His genius was a crushing burden for him as it was for Galileo. I could never understand why he just couldn’t use his powers of deductive reasoning to give up on alchemy.

      • Eric

        That’s very fascinating, Grandmere.

    • RodK1975

      Just me, Eric, but I’m expecting some things to happen in 2018… What exactly, I’m not sure… but like you I think God works in decades and so forth and being that 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel, I wouldn’t be surprised if God has some amazing things in store.

      • shoebat

        Whoa. Just as I was typing to Eric and to only come down here and see that we both predicted 2018. Its a guess I know, but its not that illogical.

        • RodK1975

          Interesting, Mr. Shoebat! Now I don’t feel so dumb =P. You’re the expert, I’m just attempting to swim in your wake… It’s the number “70” and you know better than anyone that you can’t read scripture without that number continually slapping you in the face. ;-).

      • Eric

        Me too, Rod. It may perhaps just be due to my youth, but I still feel that there’s a lot to be done. The West is in shambels, and although I most certainly think God can cause a revival to happen quickly, revivals normally take time. Perhaps it’s just me, but I think young people–myself included–have a lot to do. 2018 does sound like a good prediction. We’ll have to wait and see.

        • RodK1975

          Right Eric, God can change things on a dime. Just think about 2 Kings Ch 6 & 7. Again, this is just a guess, but I can see in 2018 being the 70th Anniversary of Israel re-establishment and people celebrating that as well as a newly established peace agreement. Is there a better way to celebrate the 70th anniversary and new peace agreement than to begin construction on a new Temple? Finally, peace and security and re-established Jewish worship and then sudden destruction? Who knows… Just speculation though, like you said, we’ll just have to wait and see.

          • Eric

            Good points, Rod. We will certainly have to watch. As Jesus says, not even HE knows when He’s returning. So, although God gives us orderly signs and markers, and has everything laid out for us, He does not give us exact dates or specifics. God is very orderly and timely. but I think He knew that if we knew exact dates, it would drive us mad.

            Also, I think the difference of age may be why I seem to have a different perspective than most here on the perspective of time. I’m young, and just starting my adult life, and when I look around at the world, I think to myself, “Boy. there’s a lot of work for the church to do still.” I see a world that is not even close to being ready yet. And finally, I am by no means ready to depart from this earth yet–I feel there’s many things that God wants me and the rest of my generation to do. Like I said before, age effects how you perceive things: I still want to get married and have children, publish a few books. . .I still that there is plenty left to do. That’s just me–I perhaps have a more optimistic viewpoint because I’m only 21.

      • Trevor

        Whoa. This is spooky. I also reasoned that 2018 was the year that something major would happen too. When I saw in Psalms that a generation would equal 70 years, even 80 years if by reason of strength, and knowing Israel was “reborn” on 1948, 1948+70=2010.

        I also factored in a 7 years tribulation by counting backward – 2018-7=2011. This might be incorrect.

        Then when I saw that someone figured that the Tribulation may only last 42 months, the same length the Antichrist will reign, 42 months = 3.5 years. Could the year 2015 mean something?

        Or will it be in 2018 we see the Great Tribulation triggered?

        Right now, I don’t know, but the best for all of us to do is pay attention to the parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins, and be like the wise who kept their oil lamp well.

        I grew up with the mentality of “Expect the unexpected.”

        • RodK1975

          Right, Trevor… like I tell my youngest brother… “Carry on with the day to day living, but be prepared for anything to happen at any time.”

    • shoebat

      Eric,

      I’d pay more attention to God instead of Newton or Erdogan. God said that unless the days are shortened no flesh will be saved. For example, George Freedman, probably one of the best in predicting trends had a book explaining the next 100 years. I read the book, its pretty good and he also predicted that Turkey will present the danger to the world but he also included Japan. But after reading the book I smiled because I knew that Freedman did not know Scripture that God will shorten the time. Low and behold, I just saw a video of Freedman in which he was amazed how fast things were happening and he is recanting the extent of time its taking. If one thinks of Turkey’s opportunity to use the disasters by ISIS, that there will be 7 years of turmoil and then 7 years of peace, lets see, the turmoil started from the Arab Spring which started 2010-2011. Do the math. The Caliphate must then launch itself in 2018. This is not far off.

      • Eric

        Right, I was just making an observation. I’m just very surprised at how quickly things are moving, and I guess it’s because when I think of all that needs to happen–Christianity needs to be revived in the west, for example–it doesn’t seem like it could happen on that short of a time. But, God can make things move as quickly as He needs them to be Also, what’s that book by Freedman called? I’d like to get my hands on it.

    • momprayn

      Well, since we’re talking about the dates of the Tribulation – thought I’d share this from a close relative of mine (Christian).
      But again, not anything that you can count on or anything. Just interesting.
      When he was 11 years old he told his mother out of the blue one day that he had this weird dream. Keep in mind, this kid didn’t know anything about NASDAQ, Times Square or anything. He said he saw cities “on fire”, “bad” people crashing in windows and hurting people.
      A few months later I sent a picture of my husband that was on that big Jumbotron they have at the top of Times Square that you see on TV a lot. He had been involved in the company that was going to “ring the bell” because they had been so successful and all. They had pictures of each of them displayed and photographed and given to them afterwards. When he saw this picture, he said THAT was one of the places he saw where all that bad stuff was happening.
      He said when he saw all the fires and chaos, he heard a voice say “this is the start of the Tribulation”.

      Then he had another where he and a friend were on a hill and they were 23 years old. He said he knew because his friend said “we’re only 23 and going to die!” because they saw this “ball of fire” falling from the sky which they knew was going to hit the earth. (But that doesn’t mean they died – just that it was that frightening I think). I thought of that when the discussion of what the “stars” were in Revelation and about the poisoning of the waters, etc. recently.

      Anyway – what gives one some shivers is that he will be 23 yrs. old next September, 2015.

      To add to all that, I read where some Christians feel 2016 is marked for signs of our greatly needed reforms and reversals because it will be the 240th year of America’s independence.
      If true, that would mean America apparently has a revival and starts reversing with the elections of 2016. ????? and be used of God in the end time scenario defeating the Antichrist as Walid has said….by …..2018????

      Don’t know – but I guess we can agree it is likely that we’ll all know in the very near future…………

      • Eric

        Good points, mompryan. We’ll have to wait and see. 😉 very interesting

      • RodK1975

        Very interesting, momprayn. You know, I do believe that God sends people warnings in dreams and so forth. On one hand, it’s easy to dismiss stuff as crazy. On the other hand, it’s easy to get wrapped up in one thing to the exclusion of all else. I know people that are all wrapped up in “numbers” always looking for a pattern of 3 or 7 and blood moons and so forth. I try not to get so tied up in things like that because I think we can easily give those things too much attention and so forth. But, at the same time, I don’t ignore them either. Like I said above, I think there is something very significant about 2018 being that it’s Israels 70th anniversary because the number 70 is special. I think the blood moons are a sign of all these things we discuss daily on this site. I don’t let the specifics dictate my life, but I take note of them and file it away and look for more signs and such. So, thanks for telling us about that dream, it’s getting filed in my prophecy data bank ;-). I remember a dream I had approx 20 years ago, long before I knew much about end-times prophecy. I certainly knew nothing of Mr Shoebat. But, I had a dream one night and I saw this man, dressed like you’d expect Elijah or Isaiah to be dressed. He was standing in the desert and there was black smoke all around and the sky was a blood red color. The man had a book in his hand and was pointing toward a burning city and yelling “LOOK… LOOK… THE BOOK FORETOLD IT. LOOK AT HER THE BOOK FORETOLD IT.” That dream is still just as fresh in my mind as if I’d had it last night. Now, imagine my surprise 20 years later listening to Mr Shoebat tell about Saudi Arabia being destroyed by Iran and the oil and rivers of pitch burning. Crazy interesting stuff!

        • momprayn

          Thanks – yes – I do believe it’s “biblical” that God gives us dreams/visions still (Joel 2) but yes, hard to know if they’re really from Him or not. But sometimes they “stand out” somehow like yours too.
          I had one dream that I think has a good chance of being from Him too. I saw this huge big black tarantula spider that was dead at the bottom of some ocean or something and floated up to the top for all to see. That was a few years ago and I connected it (maybe) to Obama and the evil “webs” of deception/death he and his Admin. had been weaving – but the good news was — “it” was killed to bother us no more……

  • Trevor

    It’s interesting to note how Jesus warned His followers:

    “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.” Matthew 24:26.

    It seem to me Jesus was peering into the future and saw the Mahdi figure, believed that is coming according to Shitte and Sunni believers (both desert dwellers), as a part of the religion of the desert, since Islam originated from the desert. Then He mentioned the inner rooms, which I can only reason to mean television or the Internet, because I believe thousands will be deceived.

    • Steve Smith

      Trevor, I think you hit on something, my Baba would not let my brother bring a TV IN THE HOUSE. He worked in the Mills up north and had money. Baba, fallowed Father Seraphim of Vyritsa. Here http://www.johnsanidopoulos.com/2010/05/holy-and-venerable-father-seraphim-of.html He said, that people would put a black icon in their homes, The Antichrist would use that to speak to them and lead them astray.

        I’m going to have to read that link. It sounds interesting.

  • richinnameonly

    The West and the churches are so groggy, confused and self critical that Erdogan must see a pretty clear path ahead.

  • Nick Andopolis

    This is a very good article as each one always is. I have a question to anyone that can answer and assist. During the 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth, how are there mortals? If everyone has accepted Christ wouldn’t everyone be forever in their new bodies or raptured instantly right before Jesus comes to take care of the Islamic nations? Because after the 1000 years the devil temps the nations one last time.

    Thank you and God Bless.

      You have to remember that when Christ returns, there will be still mortals who will be still alive.

      Only those who are in Christ and those who died for Christ will rise and be turned into immortals by the power of the Christ and the Holy Spirit.

      In Ezekiel 39, God promises that He will left a part of the Islamic horde because God is always going to have witnesses of who He is when He is revealed on that day to all the world. Therefore, the rapture of the believers takes place sometime after the Great Tribulation so we join with Christ to fight against the Antichrist and his armies, including nations who have come against Israel.

      Revelation and Daniel both said that judgments were committed to the resurrected saints to judge the world with Christ. In Psalms 2 and Revelation, Jesus promised to the overcomers that with Christ, they would rule the world with rod of iron.

      Therefore, there will be still be mortals born during the Golden Era of Jesus’ reign. There will be an expectation to all the nations to come to Jerusalem once a year to pay tribute to Christ, otherwise, that nation will not receive any rain.

      Satan will be released to deceive the nations once more for one final hurrah. This time God Himself will intervene and eradicate those fools.

    A great article, Walid. Events are happening fast, while our government is dithering.

    The video was interesting to see in that they captured how the strings really move. That’s was some good playing. Maybe there’s a lesson here, just because one can’t see something, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
