Tomorrow You Will See The Star Of Bethlehem, A Sign That Christ’s Second Coming Is Around The Corner

By Walid Shoebat

When it comes to tomorrow, Christians need to think while watching the Star of Bethlehem which will appear after an absence of roughly 2000 years. Tomorrow (June 30th, 2015) the Star of Bethlehem will be making a return. Will this mean that the signs of the end is beginning to unfold? And what did this sign mean? Is it a time of joy or suffering or both?

How could King Herod's own advisors have been unaware of a star so bright  that it could have led the wise men to Jerusalem? According to Professor David Weintraub, this may be because it disappeared briefly

So lets start. It is crucial to note that The Star of Bethlehem, which signaled Christ’s birth is not only mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 2, but in Numbers 24 as well regarding cataclysmic events.

So lets start first in Matthew 2, it speaks of when Christ was a threat to the Edomite king and the Anti-Messiah of his day, Herod:

“When Jesus therefore was born in Bethlehem of Judah, in the days of King Herod, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to adore him…” Who having heard the king, went their way; and behold the star which they had seen in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the child was. And seeing the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”

But this star was foretold in the Old Testament Numbers regarding Messiah’s first coming and also included another major incident to take place regarding His second coming as well:

A star shall rise out of Jacob and a sceptre shall spring up from Israel: and shall strike the chiefs of Moab, and shall waste all the children of Seth. And he shall possess Idumea: the inheritance of Seir shall come to their enemies, but Israel shall do manfully. Out of Jacob shall he come that shall rule, and shall destroy the remains of the city.” (Numbers 24:15-19)

To understand the Star of Bethlehem, we need to think like the three wise men. Motivated by this “star in the east,” they first traveled to Jerusalem and told King Herod the prophecy that a new ruler of the people of Israel would be born. King Herod was alarmed at this star and worried about Christ’s first coming and was seeking to kill him and defeat God’s plan by persecuting God’s little children where Rachel wept all the way to Ramah:

“This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” (Jeremiah 31:15)

Few think, and it is time they do as the wise men. While the beginning signs of the star was joy for the wise men and shepherds in my village near Bethlehem in the Shepherd’s Fields (today is called Beit Sahour where I was born and raised), it was also tears for the children of God. And so will it be when the star appears again, tomorrow, two millennium later, it says that soon, the children born of Idumea will seek to destroy the children born of spiritual Israel.

Such persecution is also recorded in detail by St. John who saw how the woman (Mary) “she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron” (Revelation 12:5), this is no doubt Christ, and therefore is this woman John speaks of signifies the hatred of Mary (the woman), the Church and also to be redeemed, Israel:

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:17)

The beginning of the prophecy by both Jeremiah and John was great persecution where in Jeremiah the children of God were massacred with the new born Israelites.

King Herod’s Fortress

It is time therefore to embrace ourselves for the wave of persecution against the Church first, then just as after Mary’s birth pangs came, the Messiah was delivered, and so it will be, that after the coming birth pangs, the Star will come and defeat Idumea and Messiah shall “possess Idumea” as foretold in Numbers 24.

Most fail to focus, the references to Mount Seir and the land of Seir (or Idumea) are real places and not some pie in the sky allegory. These references to the land where Esau and his descendants, the Edomites, made their home. This would embrace a great part of Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of not just Islam, but the Antichrist it produced: Muhammad, the world’s leading heresiarch.

Ezekiel stresses that the whole of Idumea (“all Idumea, even all of it”) will be caught up in this massive conflict and will be made desolate by the Messiah which will stretch from Teman, in today’s Yemen, to Dedan, an ancient city in central Saudi Arabia:

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them; Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword. (Ezekiel 25:12-13)

And what do we see today? The stage is set where Iran is set against Saudi Arabia (see Isaiah 21) and in Yemen a revolution is brewing. Everything is working in accordance to the clock of God which even His cosmos reminded the wise men long ago and it reminds the wise men of today, embrace yourselves and be ready.

Note that Ezekiel 35 mentions their “perpetual hatred” against Israel. This hatred of the Church and the Jewish people, which is so characteristic of Islam, extends back to the earliest times – a truly perpetual hatred. The Messiah will eventually come to slaughter vast numbers of the army of the Antichrist in this region because they tried to take “these two nations” or “these two countries” which belonged to the LORD, a reference to Israel (northern kingdom) and Judah (southern kingdom).

Ezekiel says also that the LORD heard all the blasphemies that the people of Idumea had directed against Him, how they had “multiplied” their blasphemies and their boasts against the LORD. Such endless stream of blasphemies came in particular from one city in Saudi Arabia – Mecca, the city where the black stone is worshipped by millions of Muslims from around the world and from which endless invective is poured out upon Israel. It is the city of seven towers which was constructed this decade while the Bible every time mentions Babylon in end times context, it gives the names of cities and vicinities within Arabia, not Iraq. This is truly amazing. For folks who want to examine the difficult to refute argument and read more (see below at the end I included a whole study Why Is Arabia Mystery Babylon)

BxMEyHUCIAA7GlM

There is no place on earth today where stands the largest structure in the world, used for a religious purpose, all worshipping in one tongue regardless of pilgrims mother tongues, they all babel in Arabic in Mecca which is holy to more than 1.5 billion people on earth. The seven structure towers are built upon what is literally called Mount Babel

Isaiah takes up this theme, the total destruction of Saudi Arabia, in a remarkable passage in chapter 63:

Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. (Isaiah 63:1-4)

Bozrah is south east of the Dead Sea, a town one would normally pass through when travelling from Saudi Arabia into Judea. Isaiah depicts the Messiah coming north out of Saudi Arabia, his clothes drenched with the blood of his victims, whom he has trodden down in his “anger” and “fury.”

The modern born-again Christians have focused so much on God’s love that they have largely forgotten that it is bound up with his judgment and righteousness. The LORD has stated categorically that he will come and defend his people. The church is uncomfortable with the Messiah in his role as King and Conqueror. They confuse the meekness of Christ in his First Coming with the judgment of Christ in his Second Coming. They find it hard to accept that the Lamb will dispense bloody judgment on a truly grand scale. As a result they fail to see what ought to be obvious, that the intense anti-semitism and hatred by the Islamic nations, the descendants of Ishmael and Esau, will ultimately culminate in the appalling attempt on the destruction of Israel which they have long promised to carry out.

Everything I write here is consistent in what we know is happening in the Middle East. The other part of Christ’s campaign against the confederacy of the Antichrist will be conducted in Egypt.

The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. (Isaiah 19:1-2)

But they [Judah and Ephraim] shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. (Isaiah 11:14-15)

These passages from Isaiah suggest that the Israeli airforce, led by the Messiah, will fly over Gaza (“the shoulders of the Philistines”) and attack Egypt, where they will wreak devastation. The chaos will be so great that the Egyptians will even turn upon themselves. Isaiah also includes in his description a reference to the Nile delta which will all dry up. The Euphrates River and the Nile, both on the news and both are predicted to dry up causing cataclysmic events on the nations that depend on them. The Bible predicts that the Euphrates will stop the flow of water so that 200 million man army enters to make its way to invade Jerusalem and how the Aswan Dam in Egypt will be  completely destroyed. We have written on a coming major drought and hunger that will also take place.

Also, expect Lebanon to fall and the Christians there to nearly be annihilated. The following passages from Isaiah show that the Antichrist will invade Lebanon and deal savagely with the Christian population of that country. The references to “after the manner of Egypt” and the slaughter of Midan would suggest that the attack upon Lebanon takes place after the above-mentioned events in Saudi Arabia and Egypt:

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian [i.e the Antichrist]: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction. And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt. (Isaiah 10:24-26)

Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled. And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one. (Isaiah 10:33-34)

So it is persecution first (yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease), then the second coming where this “mighty one” in verse 34 is a reference to the Messiah as King, vanquishing the enemies of the Church. Similar references may be found elsewhere in Isaiah:

Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies: (Isaiah 24:1)

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. (Isaiah 49:26)

The Muslims will eat the flesh of other Muslims and turn into cannibals out of hunger. It should be remembered that the slaughter that the Messiah will visit upon these various Muslim nations is in recompense for the awful crimes which they will have committed against the Jews of Israel and the Christians of Egypt and Lebanon. For example, Joel says:

And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Philistia? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompence me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head (Joel 3:3-4)

Note that Tyre, Zidon (Lebanon) and Philistia (Gaza) are the very places where Hezbollah and Hamas are based today.

Jeremiah 25 and Ezekiel 28-32 gives a chilling inventory of the nations which the Messiah, in person, will either destroy or subjugate in these cataclysmic End Time events and they are all Muslim.

So remember tomorrow, to go outside as instructed:

Tomorrow, Christians need to reflect, right after the sun sets (9:26pm eastern time, 8:26pm Central Time and 7:26 Mountain Time) head outside and look west. Just above the horizon, you’ll see a bright object in the night sky as Jupiter and Venus come within 1/3 of a degree of each other. This is what they call “The Star of Bethlehem” conjunction because Jupiter and Venus did something similar near the star Regulus in 3/2 BC, more than 2000 years ago. Many astronomers say that this ancient celestial event is the one recorded in the Bible’s Gospel of Matthew.

On the evening of June 19–21, Venus and Jupiter — already close together in the evening sky — are joined by a thin crescent Moon. Click on this image for a high-definition version, or click here for a version without labels. Sky & Telescope diagram

On the evening of June 30th, all eyes will be on Venus and Jupiter as they create a dramatic “double star” in the western sky after sunset. Click on this image for a high-definition version, or click here for a version without labels. Sky & Telescope diagram

Indeed, Jesus’s second coming is around the corner. How many years from now, no one can tell for certain, but it seems to be getting closer by the day. Until then, embrace yourselves and have joy for persecution is at hand.

WHY ARABIA IS MYSTERY BABYLON

The reference “Babylon is fallen, is fallen” is not only in Revelation, but is also in Isaiah:

“The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11)
“The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13)
“All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16)

These are all in Arabia, which is destroyed by Iran “Elam” (Isaiah 21:2).

And again, a few chapters before, the destruction of Babylon is described as being absolute. Isaiah speaks of this event:

“For I will rise up against them, says the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon its name and remnant, and offspring and prosperity, says the Lord … I will sweep it with the broom of destruction” (Isaiah 12:15).

The broom of destruction! Anyone who has seen footage of a nuclear explosion has seen the fury and the power of the ominous cloud that sweeps up everything in its path and is why we have been correct the last two decades; Iran will gain the nuke and everyone else wrong.

So why do folks skip the name “Arabia” in Isaiah 21 when they read Scripture? To mythically superimpose an imaginative “Rome” on top of the text says one thing; prejudice is more powerful in the heart of a sinner than truth and no matter how much they say that they “love Jesus”, they don’t.

Why has there been an immense oversight by many in the field of biblical eschatology; that when it comes to the destruction of end-days Babylon, Scripture makes no mention of any of the ancient Babylonian cities: Nineveh, Ur, Babel, Erech, Accad, Sumer, Assur, Calneh, Mari, Karana, Ellpi, Eridu, Kish, or Tikrit. All of the literal references in Scripture are in Arabia?

Why is it that they still insist on accusing Rome, regardless that the use “MOTHER OF HARLOTS”, while it is commonly attributed to the Vatican’s Mariology with the worship of Ishtar, they ignore that history records that the worship of Ishtar “Kilili”, or “Queen of Harlots” originated from Arabia, not Rome?

In fact, when Muslims roam roundabout the black stone, it is a throwback to the worship of Ishtar, whom they called Athtar and Allat. (see Patricia Turner and Charles Russell Coulter, Dictionary of Ancient Deities, Page 242, Ishtar, Oxford University Press US, 2001.)

When it comes to the Harlot woman, the Kaaba is a perfect match. The black tarp is considered by Muslims to be a woman’s dress (Kiswa) as Edward Gibbons elaborated:

“…the kuswa of the magnificent Kaaba, is what is used for clothing of a [virtuous] covering, on top of it, it is written, the Kaaba’s dressing, meaning ‘we have dressed her her dress.” (see Edward Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire, Volume 6, Chap. 1, Page 211., Little, Brown, and Company, 1855.)

Everything that the harlot is described it fits the Ka’ba; dress, pearls, jewels, gold, silver and even the blasphemies etched in silver threads with golden inlays across her attire. Just the doors of the Ka’ba alone has 280 kilograms of pure gold.

The reference to a prostitute in Revelation 17 regarding the “Whore of Babylon” is no coincidence:

“And the woman (whore) was arrayed in purple and scarlet color” (v. 17)…

…resembles the near copulating with the Ka’ba’s Black Stone, which historically was dedicated to Aphrodite, the prostitute goddess that was called “Aphrodite Porne” (Aphrodite the Prostitute), “the goddess adorned in purple”, similar to the depictions given in Revelation 17:4, which the Ka’ba has a scarlet-colored inner garment. John of Damascus notes:

“After the Hajj was preformed by Muhammad, the ‘rubbing and kissing the [of the Black Stone]…was extremely passionate.’”

Muslim tradition even perpetuates the blasphemy that:

“Abraham had sexual intercourse with Hagar on it” (Sahas. Heresy, Pages 88-89).

Francis Burton writes regarding the Ka’ba:

“the part of the cover (Kiswa), covering the door, is called [a Burka] just like the veil the Arabic women are wearing in front of their face…in fact, Arab mystics even compare the Ka’ba to a virgin, adorned with her finest wedding dress.” (Vol 3, page 295)

Even today during their Hajj pilgrimage, Muslims kiss, rub and caress the Black Rock.

Furthermore, it is impossible to even consider that Isaiah 21 was referring to an historic battle between Persia and ancient Babylon since the multiple references throughout are not connected to ancient Iraq but to Kedar, Tema, Dedan and Dumah (all referenced prophetically), which are all in Saudi Arabia near Yathrib (Medina), and today is known as “Dumat el-Jandal.” Dumah, one of the sons of Ishmael, is also associated with Edom and Seir in Isaiah 21:11. It is believed by many that Kedar, Ishmael’s son, is the line from which Muhammad descended.

Even Muslims recognize when they read Isaiah 21, they see Isaiah 21:14-15 as the story of Muhammad when the Muslims emigrated from Mecca to Medina (Tema) in which they were fed and rescued from the sword. No westerner was able to interpret:

“The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled. For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.” (Isaiah 21:14-15)

The Bible depicts that in this time, it will not be like the time when Muhammad fled; all Arabia – including the Glory of Kedar (Mecca) – will be destroyed. How else can anyone interpret:

“No Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his flocks there” (Isaiah 13:20)

Arabs pitch tents in Arabia, not Rome. The ultimate fulfillment of this verse is the destruction of the Last-Days Babylon. We know this because the passage speaks about: “the day of the Lord” (v. 9) with the “heavens not giving light” (v. 10). This is not historical, but End-Times related.

Then we have the Red Sea:

“The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea.” (Jeremiah 49:21)

The Red Sea is a geographic indicator as to where the Last-Days Babylon will be located. Look at Mecca on any map and you will see that it sits near the Red Sea. Some may object, saying that Jeremiah 49 is speaking about Edom, which was primarily located in modern day Jordan. Yet, in Ezekiel 25, “Edom” stretches from Teman (Yemen) to Dedan (Saudi Arabia)” (v. 13). Greater Edom included all of the west coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Notice the description of her destruction:

“‘As Sodom and Gomorrah were overthrown, along with their neighboring towns,’ says the LORD, ‘so no one will live there; no man will dwell in it,’” (Jeremiah 49:18).

It is no surprise that Iran is focused on Saudi Arabia, since the Bible predicted that the harlot is destroyed by the beast she rides, that is, the nations she deceieved with her spiritual harlotry—Islam.

Our latest finding here is infinitesimal. We have gathered much to shed a new light to show the differences between Vatican and Mecca; the evidence is overwhelming, Mecca fits biblical Babylon and Vatican doesn’t. For example (out of hundreds), where in Vatican do we have “Mount Babel” which is also an observatory to monitor the movement of the moon and is called “Seven Towers of the House” reminiscent to the ancient name of Babel, which was called “The house of the seven lights of the earth”?

Where in the Vatican did they erect the largest tower on earth topped with a crescent and has observatories to monitor the planets and the moon? Where on Vatican hill, do they have an edifice decked with gold and silver, littered with statements that are biblically considered blasphemous, treated as if it was a woman, and has a massive gate made of pure gold that is literally called Bab-Illah (Babel) “The Gate to God”?

There is no place on earth that matches such requirements than Mecca.

The Gate of the Kaaba (made of pure gold)

Bab-Illah (The Gate of Allah) is the Gate to the Ka’ba (made of pure gold)

In what is probably the least examined sources in Islam by westerners, that discusses the Ka’ba as Babel “The Gate to God,” or Bab-Illah in Arabic, and is mentioned in the highest authority in Islam, the Hadith:

“… the Kaaba is the house of God and God’s sanctuary is Bab-Illah (the gate to God), so when they went there, they stood by the door in supplication …”

Babel, the English pronunciation, and Bab-Illah are identical in meaning. The difference is simply in the accent.

This Bab-Illah (Babel) is also depicted as a woman in Islam, exactly as John stated in Revelation 17:3. One Muslim writes a poem depicting as if the Ka’ba is a lover and is literally Bab-Illah (Babel) “the Gate to Allah”. He titles it “Look at my lover and your lover as she changes her dress”:

“I tremble in Thy beauty
Yearning to Thy black silk
Thy excellent belt a verse included
From the Quran a splendid writ
Granting Thee from Allah’s throne a high esteem
Which should suffice
He named Thee His Gate
He even loosened from Thy splendid robe pride
To dress Thee in splendor and majesty”

Another Muslim describes a Turkish pilgrim’s experience in the Hajj:

“Ahmed says that he had an eerie feeling when he saw the Kaaba in Mecca at first glance: “This is the house of Allah!”, These words were on his mind as he looked to the Black Stone and beside it was the door of the house of Allah: “Is there any door besides Bab-Illah (Gate to God)”

The most famous of Muhammadan poetry by Al-Bosayri in the eleventh century and then the most prominent poet in Arab history, Ahmad Shawqi, who is considered the Prince of poetry, describes Muhammad as “owning the key to Bab-Illah (the gate of Allah)”.

Muslim scholar Muhammad Said Ramadan Al-Buti, prior to his assassination by the Free Syrian Army explained the Hajj Pilgrimage as following:

“You go around the house of Allah, and you are in His hospitality. You are standing at His door, floating around on the doorstep. You are not on the door of the king, nor a great man. You are at the door of the Lord of kings. You are standing before the door of the creation in humiliation and indignity. You stand at Bab-Illah (the door of Allah’s) pride and His dignity. Weep since weeping is joyful there, but you do not cry, beg to creature, nor weep in humiliation in front of a creature. It’s difficult for the man that cringes to a brother or to anyone else. But on Bab-Illa (the door of Allah) what is the most enjoyable is to seclude myself and drench my forehead on the cusp of Allah Almighty, because my soul in his hand, and my whole self is his and my breath is in his hand and I’m on His doorstep, I tour around his home saying: “There is no god but Allah alone …”

For years, I had to endure listening to lectures on why Rome is the Harlot since it sits on seven hills, when truth is that Vatican City—the city where the Catholic Church is headquartered—is not built on seven hills, but on a hill separate from the seven hills of Rome: Vatican Hill, which is not even one of the seven upon which ancient Rome was built. Those hills are on the east side of the Tiber river; Vatican Hill is on the west.

Other cities are known for having been built on seven hills as well. Istanbul is known as the City on the Seven Hills, which – consciously following the model of Rome – was built on seven hills too. There are about seventy cities that claim to be on seven hills, some of which are Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Brussels, Kiev, Moscow and Madrid.
Yet none of these (including Rome) were destined for destruction in the Bible, yet Arabia is (Isaiah 21).

The Bible is also precise and pinpoints a geographic location for this “Babylon” as was predicted in Jeremiah 49:21, literally, “the Red Sea” which confirms Arabia’s destruction. This is also confirmed in Revelation 18 regarding the harlot city:

“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” (Revelation 18:9). “And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What [city is] like unto this great city!” (Revelation 18:18).

And once one studies Isaiah 34, there should be no doubt. In nearly identical language concerning Mystery Babylon in Revelation 17, 18:

“Its streams shall be turned into pitch and its dust into brimstone; its land shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever” (Isaiah 34:8-10).

Incredibly, almost three millennia before the discovery of fuel oil, Isaiah predicted the burning of the very thing that was used in Babel to build a name for the rebellious ones – the pitch. Pitch is bitumen and tar, which technically is simply crude oil.

This judgment is not against Rome but “Edom” which extends from Teman to Dedan:

“Thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them. ‘Therefore thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cutt off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword’” (Ezekiel 25:12-13).

The Lord vindicates Rome, but does that mean she will not be chastised? It is likely just as Israel will or even the United States. But one cannot use the Scripture and twist it just to sell books. Here on Shoebat.com we explain it free of charge.

God has made the geographical location of Mystery Babylon quite clear for anyone who would seek it out.
This destruction of Arabia is complete and fits the description made by several prophets whose prophecies correlate with Isaiah 34:

“Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning, and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come! … Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’” (Revelation 18:8-10, 17-18).

Apart from Sodom and Gomarrah, this type of utter destruction has never been seen in any other city, including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “After her destruction, Babylon will merely be a home for demons, evil spirits, and scavenging desert creatures” (Revelation 18:1-2).

This is in line with the ancient Eastern perception that desolate desert wastelands were the dwelling place of demons and unclean spirits. The point being emphasized is that after Babylon is destroyed, there will be absolutely no human life ever found there again. Jeremiah agrees; he describes this:

So desert creatures and hyenas will live there, and there the owl will dwell. It will never again be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation” (Jeremiah 50:39). Isaiah confirms a similar fate: “It shall be a habitation of jackals” (Isaiah 34:14).

      I predict that he won’t. So, let’s place a bet. If you die and he didn’t come, then all of your possessions belong to me. If he did. Then, I’ll burn in hell and you’ll be saved. Deal? Let’s see if you put your money where your faith is.

    Thank you Walid for being a voice of sanity, informing everyone to keep their eyes on Islam and MECCA as being the mystery Babylon… those “Christians” still looking at Rome and the Vatican to be the mystery Babylon or the Pope as the Anti-Christ will be sorely wrong…and it is ugly and unjust to slander fellow Christians.
    God bless you Walid and your family, I wouldn’t have known any of this before you explained it and about the need to put on a “Middle Eastern mindset” to truly understand the Bible and the end-times.. about Turkey and the A-C…. and all the prophesies potentially taking place in the Middle East.

    • Human

      Perry Stone was the first to teach me that the antichrist will be a muslem, and that we are in a holy war with islam. Walid has brought new insite to the conversation, and I truly appreciate it. I also enjoyed seeing Walid filling in for Jack Van Impy the last couple weeks.

    Great article, Mr. Shoebat… I love astronomy… too bad when you try to talk to most Christians about stuff like this you get your standard… “You shouldn’t be reading the stars that’s astrology.” Too bad they don’t read their Bible and can’t tell the difference between astrology and astronomy.

    “14 God
    said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to divide the day
    from the night; let them be for signs, seasons, days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the dome of the sky to give light to the earth”; and that is how it was. 16 God made the two great lights — the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night — and the stars. 17 God put them in the dome of the sky to give light to the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 So there was evening, and there was morning, a fourth day.”

  • Sister E

    Thanks Walid. I’ll watch out for it.

  • This Little Piggy

    I suggest everyone read one of several books showing that the constellations characters & ancient star names tell the Gospel in the stars (Bullinger, Seiss, Fleming, Warner).The stars declare the glory of God & His story & plan for redeeming man. Even Dr James Kennedy, the author of “Evangelism Explosion,” wrote a book about this ( http://www.amazon.com/Real-MeaningZodiacJamesKennedy/dp/B0006FDYAM/ref=pd_sim_14_13?ie=UTF8&refRID=189A6FCMSJYXG074SBMM ).God warned us about being tricked by Satan’s corruption of God’s original storybook in the sky, the Mazzaroth (name of the Zodiac in the Bible) into astrology. Satan has hidden the clear gospel story in the constellation characters in of the Zodiac (ancient name means the path or the way). The coming of Christ, the promised seed, is declared in Virgo (the virgin), & her close by associated constellations show His birth. Continuing in order around the 12 characters of the Zodiac the story goes in chronological order through Christ fighting the dragon (Satan), His dying (there is even a Southern Cross in the stars), defeat of death & His coming final solution for Satan when Christ comes, as the King of Kings & the Lion of thr tribe of Judah, is told by Leo the Lion.

    Satan has tricked man into thinking the stars can be used to tell us about ourselfs to hide the clear evidence of God, & His plan for saving us written in the stars from the moment they were placed in the sky. Let you self be amazed by His glorious power & love. God wrote how much He loved us before He formed man. He loved us enough to continuing to make us even when He knew, before He even formed an living thing, the price He would pay to save us. He drew His prophetic plan shining in the sky as His giant love story for man. Imagine that you were worth it all!!!

    • susan

  • Marcelo Alberto

    Great news about the star of Bethlehem, but the interpretation of prophetic texts, and mismatched, point to a direction incompatible with the reports of God’s judgment on Babylon the great.

    The book brings to light is that of Daniel. The four empires are literally coming from the great sea of ​​Mesopotamia.

    The 4th animal is related to the Roman Empire, the fourth empire who stepped the children of Israel.

    The 11th horn that grew more than the other 10, is part of the Roman Empire, the Church of Rome, which became the great world power after the Roman Empire fall.

    All prophetic evidence points to Europe dominating the world.

    After the end of the Roman Empire, we saw the Merovingian dynasty uniting the popes, to the point of Charlemagne resurrect the Roman Empire through the unification of barbarians. As the Empire Carolingio the resurrection of the Roman Empire.

    In European expansion, we saw 7 people barbarians, who represented the power of this era, colonizing the rest of the world and to the extent that expanded, led the Catholic Church, for through this religion, the people submit to their power represented by the Pope , fulfilling Revelation 17: 5-10 when he speaks of the red beast taking upon himself the woman drunken with the blood of faithful Christians.

    It is true that the Arabs have their presence in this prophetic scenario, but by no means the prophecy the point as the fulfillment of the Antichrist and the beast.

    The beast is a kingdom made up of seven European countries. The seven kingdoms united as a world power, forming the 8th kingdom.

    The UN plays the role. The G7 are the seven heads of the beast, with the exception of Japan, which will result in another European country to complete the prophecy. As well as russia left off, certainly Japan also had left.

    • DeusLoVult

      You are completely wrong. The empire of the AC is the Ottoman Empire. Read Shoebat’s analysis of prophecy here: http://shoebat.com/2014/12/19/new-discovery-antichrist-nation-turkey-now-reviving-mark-beast/

      And here: http://shoebat.com/2015/01/20/many-reasons-erdogan-reviving-ottoman-empire-coming-caliphate/

    • Grandmere

      You need to reboot your thinking.

    • Lidia

      Here is what the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church had to deal with in history. It’s very sad! You should dig deeper and try to understand it.

      http://www.raymondibrahim.com/islam/the-true-history-of-christendom-and-islam/

      Like this author said: We live in a “ahistorical society” and the age of disinformation.

      From Wikipedia:
      Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace be upon him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

      — Sunan Abu Dawood, 37:4310 see also Sunan Abu Dawood, 39:4527

      My question is this? Who is their antichrist?

  • richinnameonly

    This article is a feast!

  • Jeff Benton

    We better put this here, for all the peeps still thinking – Mystery, Babylon the great, The mother of harlots and abominations of the earth, – is America…

    http://www.zephaniah.eu/Israel%20Islam%20and%20the%20Antichrist.pdf

    now let me see if that link works lol…

    • Jeff Benton

      Good grief… Finally got that PDF over to a text file…
      So here is one thing most proclaimers of “America is doomed” and “America is the Mystery Babylon” fail to grasp… explained in the link above and numerous times here on Walids site…

      “The original word for “earth” in the phrase, “all the inhabitants of the earth” (verse 29), is erets (Strong’s H776). This is not a reference to the world or the planet as a whole, but to land or territory, often the land surrounding Canaan. The word erets appears about 2500 times in the Old Testament and is translated ‘land’ no fewer than 1500 times in the King James Bible. Thus we can see that, as Mr Shoebat points out, the interpretation of End Time prophecies must have particular regard to the way words like erets are translated. Serious misunderstandings can ensue if they depart too far from the perspective of a prophet writing in Biblical times.”

      By the way, no matter how hard I search, I cannot find a mystery babylon mentioned one single time in the Bible – Rev 17-5 is completely different in my bible and goes like this Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

      So if anyone has the passage every one keeps referring too as “Mystery Babylon” please share it with me so I wont be a lost little puppy anymore…
      Thanks…

  • Brother J.

    This woman in Revelation is said to go to the wilderness for 1,260 days, so I think this is speaking about the Jews in general, not just Mary.

    • Ignacio

      True, I think the woman symbolizes the jews because from them Jesus entered the world. The dragon persecutes the woman for three and a half years but he will fail and then he will persecute the rest of the people of God who give testimony of Jesus, the christians. So the woman here is Israel.

    You never mention America, but I’m sure it’s got something to do in all this. People have said and pointed out facts that America is mystery Babylon but I haven’t read what you have to say about America in the last days. It’s a reflection of Israel and how blessed we have been by God so we definitely can’t ignore it in all these end time events.

          • Grandmere

            Okay. Right now if I point Stellarium due East and turn off the atmosphere I see Jupiter and Venus still in close conjunction with Regulus below them.

          • DeusLoVult

            I’ll take a look, my lady. If, my internet can even handle a download. 😉 Thank you, and God bless.

  • AnthonyM

    The idea or quote came from Sky & Telescope Contributing Editor Fred Schaaf brings up a very interesting point: this current trio of Venus-Jupiter conjunctions closely resembles a similar series in 3-2 BC that has been suggested as the Star of Bethlehem. “As has been the case in 2014–15,” he explains, “the first two conjunctions back then were extremely close, the last one separated by about 1°, all three occurred not far from Regulus, and all were similarly high up in the sky.”

    Carlos Perla (above) said next year they will be 0.05 degrees. If true, they will look like one.

  • Alana Michelle

    The land on earth right now that’s called Israel is NOT the same as Israel in the Bible, it’s referring to TRUE followers of Christ, the promised land is being prepared in heaven, for all those who are in Christ, it’s the New Jerusalem that comes to the new earth after the great day of judgment….and the Bible also warns about those who claim to be Jews but are NOT, they’re the Synagogue of Satan. Please also remember, Satan comes first during the end times, God’s people were scattered about away from Israel, and to get back to the promised land you must be in Christ & have him in your heart, the Jews in Israel today “reject” Christ, and we’re told in the Bible those who have the Son also have the Father; those who don’t have the Son have not the Father….sorry but I don’t believe Israel is following our heavenly father, I think they are following Satan, believing he is God….I pray for “everyone” during these times.

I often pray that Christ makes Himself known to those who are persecuting His followers and to other Christians to strengthen their faith in the face of persecution and turmoil.
    As someone who has enjoyed my share of vodka and other alcoholic drinks (and also a long-time user of medications for anxiety and depression), I was deeply encouraged by your words… I pray that you continue going from strength to strength with the grace of God, and that Christ continues to protect you and your family.

    It was written by the same author of this article. Mr. Shoebat is a former PLO terrorist who converted to Christianity in the 90s. If he stays loyal to Lucifer, you know what will happen. But to me, it sounds like he could be converted to the Truth, if it is shown to him in the right way. Buy Shoebat’s book, “God’s War on Terror”. See if you can’t convince him to read that as well.

    That the Jews will put their faith in Christ as a nation at or near His return.
    We also love the Jews, even those who hate us,because God loves the Jews and will fulfill his promises to the nation of Israel.

    If it was a comet why did Herod ask the Maji about the “star” they had seen? Everybody would have been talking about it.

    I’ll try to reply, but you live in a dark world. Better get a bucket, I think you’re going to throw-up. Pardon my typo’s.

    radical Christianists? There have been a few murderers who killed abortionists, and other crimes in other countries. But theses are few in number and are not support by the Christian religion. And they have been tried in a court of law for their crimes like criminals. I don’t know, what 20 murders in 10 years? Any murder is tragic, including the 60 million dismembered in the womb. According to BBC (a non Christian source) Jihadist violence ‘killed 5,000 in November’. !!!!! You have no point.

    You agree with throwing homosexuals off the top of buildings to their death, and me included. You need help, and I don’t mean with throwing me off a building.

    ISIS get their Humvees, weapons, etc, when the armies trained and equipped by the US run away from battle and abandon their gear. Or when the members of the FSA changes sides and the next day decides to fight with ISIS instead of against them. Turkey is supporting ISIS, and the number of muslims joining ISIS is growing, in spite of their demonic actions. it is not made up of the Amish, but muslims, pure and simple. One day they were peaceful muslim, then one day became radicalized and began killing kafir and other muslims.

    To sit down and discuss religion requires parities to be in possession of the right mind, with you because you are ignorant of so much, and I suspect quite irrational. Your own words show your ignorance. You filled your mind with falsehoods and half truths, and now you want to enlighten me? The Christian Church is not against science as you said. You misunderstand the Galileo controversy. The issue was “Galileo could have safely proposed heliocentricity as a theory or a method to more simply account for the planets’ motions. His problem arose when he stopped proposing it as a scientific theory and began proclaiming it as truth, though there was no conclusive proof of it at the time.”. Universities and hospital systems were started by the Christian church you malign. Without the Christian Church, there would be no western civilization. But you don’t seem to care for western civilization.

    I’m not surprised by evil people burning Churches.

    You said you are sick of hearing the Church talk about evil of Islam. What about anon-Christians? They also see a problem. The problem is not people complaining, though muslims feel that is the problem. Somehow if people would stop complaining about Islam, ISIS would disband and the Caliphate muslims desire would no longer be their goal. That is foolish thinking.

    I would not join Hitler in WWII killing Jews, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem partnered with Hitler. Personally I like the Jews. They are the only hope in the Middle East. There is truth in the saying ‘In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.’

    Join Wesboro? Why? But I am surprised that anyone, even a neo-Nazi whose mind was messed up with psychotropic drugs would do that.

    You are not oppressed. The muslims are not oppressed. Their religion is the source of the problem. Since the days of Mohammed, Islam has been waging wars of conquest and beheading people. Islam seeks to convert the world for Allah, by means of force. Slaves of Allah. The stronger they become, the bigger the problem. You seem to believe in moral equivalency and since both sides are bad, no one has a right to complain. Get real! Just reported http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/07/02/isis-executioners-spare-no-one-killing-74-children-for-crimes-including-not/ Maybe you should get a bucket so you can throw up, at least you have the ability to throw up, unlike these murdered children. You can throw up until you Islamic apologists can silence web sites from reporting facts. Then you won’t hear about it any more, and can go back to your meaningless life of optimizing your wireless data plan, or playing the latest games. You think if they just had jobs they would be good citizens? Many left promising careers to go kill.

    Dhimmitude: is the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars. Dhimmi is one who is part of the Dhimmitude of 2nd class citizens (normally Jews and Christians) who pay a heavy Jizya tax to the Islamic system in order to live. Conquered people are offered 3 options: convert, be killed (beheaded), or pay the tax. You seem to be the option 1 type. While you may live a little longer, and then go on to help kill others, you will face judgement when you die. Your foul language and throwing-up won’t save you.

    Philippians 2:10 “at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

    Alignment of Jupiter and Venus as the Star of Bethlehem, sets a new date for Christ’s return throwing calendars to the wind.

    This puts Christ’s return at a later date and that means we have to live through a longer period of horror.

    I was originally looking at about 2035 plus or minus a few years, but now stretches it to 2050

    I would say it has to probably be someone young that has a long list of followers to easily deceive many and gain many others to follow him.

    What profession I do not know, but one that has world focus on him. Probably already a Gay to bring debauchery to the world as he publically displays.

    Probably, do not rule out the European Union Parliament in Brussels, not Strasbourg.
    Brussels has a monument of Woman sitting on the Beast, and hear they are to have a large picture painted inside.

    Seat 666 maybe also interesting to watch

    Davor ŠKRLEC a Croatian, and my first thoughts was rembering Croatian UstaseUstase, and how bad things were at the Concentration camps that one hardly hears about.

    One will have to keep an eye on things as they develop and play out.

    It may be of some small interest, that the last time the Star of Bethlehem configuration was visible from Jerusalem was June 17th, 2 BCE. Of further note, this was followed on September 11th, 3 BCE by the sun clothed woman standing on the moon, with 12 stars over her head as prophesied. This has not occurred since, but will now be seen again on September 11th 2017. Cheers!
