Erdogan Just Entered The Temple Of Allah On Mount Babel Aspiring To Become “King of Of Babylon”

The Gate of the Kaaba (made of pure gold)

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

By Walid Shoebat

Bab-Illah, literally means the Gate To Allah. Also Bab-Illah literally means Babel. This Bab-Illah is also a literal golden gate made of the purist of gold in the Kaaba at Mecca. This Ba-Illah was just opened for one man to enter this Tuesday. That man was none other than President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey.

This should also ring a bell. The entry mimics when Christ enters the holy Golden Gates in Jerusalem. The Muslims have their temple in Arabia while God ordained the true temple in Jerusalem.

There will also be a greater skyscraper that will burn than the one burned up today in Dubai and there will be an Antichrist entering a temple called “Mystery Babylon” that will burn up as well.

But before this event happens, the world should focus, this week when the two golden gates opened up to receive one son of the devil, Erdogan.

Historically the two golden gates in the Kaaba were opened only seven times a year, and currently they are opened for purification only twice a year and twice a year for special royalties. It is opened once to wash it from the inside and another to change its dress. The Kaaba is treated as an effeminate object of veneration.  The black silk covering etched with verses embroided with verses of the Quran, made of the purest silver and gold decorate the dress with names of blasphemy against the Son of God and the Trinity. On Tuesday not only was the golden gate of the Kaaba opened, but Erdogan was allowed entry inside the Kaaba itself where all Muslims direct their prayers and worship towards.

The Muslim world was excited about the event to the point that Egyptian media as well as Yeni Safak, the official newspaper and the mouthpiece of Erdogan, titled the event as “The Gates of The Kaaba, Opened Up For The Sake Of Erdogan“.

Even Muhammad (in mimicking Ezekiel 44:2 that no one enters the eastern gate preserved for the Prince Messiah) the prophet of Islam discouraged opening the gates allowing anyone to enter.

Yet the order to open Bab-Illah for Erdogan and his delegation came directly from the top, the servant of the two holy places (Mecca and Medina), King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, when Erdogan officially visited for the bilateral talks with King Salman.

Bab-Illah is the crucial part when one enters the Kaaba and inside, according to the rules set by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is the gate (Bab-Illah) that one bows and directs his prayers and worship to Allah once inside.

Erdogan was the third Turkish President to enter the Kaaba after Kenan Evren (1980-1989) and Turgut Özal (1989-1993), who were able to enter the Kaaba.

IS THIS THE ANTICHRIST ENTERING THE TEMPLE OF GOD?
Well this depends on which verse is being discussed and we need to be open here, wait and see. “He as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” in 2 Thessalonians 2 does not specify Jerusalem. However, Jerusalem cannot be discounted either. Yet in Daniel 11 we have a place that is not necessarily holy which Antichrist sets up his palace. For example, the Antichrist sets camp, tabernacle or his palace “between the seas and the glorious holy mountain” (Daniel 11:44-45):

But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.

And after this setup on this “holy mountain” Antichrist is destroyed, most likely by China (east) and Russia (north).

The question is: is this “holy mountain” God’s true holy mountain in Jerusalem or is it intended as the mountain of God according to Antichrist.

If the latter is correct, today we have Mount Babel (more on that later) overlooking Mecca. And here we must be open to all sorts of locations. Many scholars tend to allude that this “holy mountain” is not holy from God’s perspective but from a pagan perspective. According to Barnes’ Notes:

“What is here stated was to occur after the rumour from the east and the north Daniel 11:44 …  It would not be long before his “end,” – before the close of the series, and would be connected with that; or would be the place where that would occur … that it would be held as sacred or holy – קדשׁ qôdesh – that is, as sacred to religion, or regarded as a holy place, or a place of worship …it is true that this language might be applied to Mount Sion, for that was a mountain; it was distinguished for beauty, or was so regarded by those who dwelt there (compare Psalm 48:2); and it was holy, as being the place where the worship of God was celebrated. But it is also true, that, so far as the language is concerned, it might be applied to any other mountain or mountainous region that was distinguished for beauty, and that was regarded as sacred, or in any way consecrated to religion. I see no objection, therefore, to the supposition, that this may be understood of some mountain or elevated spot which was held as sacred to religion, or where a temple was reared for worship, and hence, it may have referred to some mountain, in the vicinity of some temple dedicated to idol worship, where Antiochus would pitch his tent for the purpose of rapine and plunder”

There are other possibilities. Erdogan’s palace is in Ankara and “The two seas” is also central in Muslim Ottoman hegemony and in Ankara where Erdogan’s palace resides, it is between the two major seas: the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

turkeyrap

An Ottoman sultan is addressed as such in prayer: “O God, assist the Sultan, son of the Sultan, Sovereign of the Two Continents, of the Two Seas, Destroyer of Two Armies, Sultan of the Two Iraqs, Servant of the Two Sanctuaries” (Ibn Iyas, 195-1960). Muhammad II was “Sovereign of the Two Seas, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean“.

When Mehmed the Conqueror died in 886/1481 at the age of forty- nine, the expeditions in Egypt, Italy and the Mediterranean were left unfinished. He had fought the ghaya war without a break, to a degree that even a contemporary historian found excessive; as he claimed, he had become, within a space of thirty years, the master of two seas and two continents, and had laid the foundations of Ottoman rule in Anatolia and the Balkans, which were to remain unshaken for four centuries. We also have “Mecca, the Holy City with its Haram, the sacred precinct, and its Ka’ba, the temple; and ‘Arafat, the Holy Mountain of the pilgrimage.”

There could also be another palace in Istanbul between the two seas (Marmara and the Black Sea) and Hagia Sophia …Two seas could also allude to the canal cut by Xerxes through Mt. Athos, connecting the peninsula with Chalcidice. And it could also be between the Temple Mount and the Dead and Mediterranean seas. The verses are vague enough perhaps for a reason that only God knows.

Erdogan’s Palace in Ankara

Antiochus also fulfilled the “between the seas” verse: “Any one has only to look on a map of the Eastern hemisphere to see that the ancient Persepolis, the capital of Persia, where the rumour of the success of the Jews reached him which induced him to return, is “between the seas” – the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf – lying not far from midway between the two … it is not unlikely that a temple would be raised on a mountain or elevated place, for this was the almost universal custom among the ancients, and it may be assumed as not improbable, that the temple of Diana, at Elymais, or Persepolis, which Antiochus robbed, and where he “pitched his tent,” was on such a place.”

This city is mentioned only once in the Bible, namely, in 2 Macc. 9:2, where it is said that Antiochus Epiphanes “entered [a city] called Persepolis, and went about to rob the temple and to hold the city. Originally, the steps were believed to have been constructed to allow for nobles and royalty to ascend by horseback. New theories, however, suggest that the shallow risers allowed visiting dignitaries to maintain a regal appearance while ascending. There is much resemblance between this and the looks of Erdogan’s palace

Some translations render the verse “And he shall fix his tabernacle, Apadno, between the seas, upon a glorious and holy mountain”. Some take the word אפדנו, “Apadno”, translated “palace”, for the proper name of a place, Theodoret takes it to be a place near Jerusalem; and Jerom says it was near Nicopolis, which was formerly called Emmaus; where the mountainous parts of Judea begin to rise, and lay between the Dead sea on the east, and the great sea on the west, where he supposes antichrist will pitch his tent. George Haydock’s Commentary says: Apadno. Some take it for the proper name of a place; others, from the Hebrew translate it, his palace.(Challoner) — He fixed his royal tent between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. (Worthington) —Porphyrius explains this of the march beyond the Euphrates, which St. Jerome does not disapprove. Apadno may denote Mesopotamia, which is styled Padan Aram. — Glorious. Hebrew: Zebi, (Calmet) or Tsebi, (Haydock) may allude to Mount Taba, where the king perished, without help. (1 Machabees vi. 11. and 2 Machabees ix. 9.) St. Jerome and many others explain all this of antichrist, and no doubt he was prefigured. The like events will probably take place again towards the end of the world. But as the particulars cannot be ascertained, we have adhered to the history of Antiochus. (Calmet)”

But in my view, such interpretations might have missed an important link from Scripture even though some say that he will set his palace on the Golan Heights, but if Daniel predicts such event as his downfall, we are explicitly told of this in Ezekiel 39 as where his downfall will be. I project that nearby where Hamon-Gog is destroyed “east of the sea” in Ezekiel 39:15, where it is to be the place where all of Israel buries the five-sixths of the army of Gog and Magog that are struck down by God. The name is given to us precisely:

 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give Gog a noted place for a sepulchre in Israel: the valley of the passengers [Abarim] on the east of the sea, which shall cause astonishment in them that pass by: and there shall they bury Gog, and all his multitude, and it shall be called the valley of the multitude of Gog.” (Ezekiel 39:11, see Douay Rheims and also NABRE)

While Megiddo is another location for the battle stemming from the Golan Heights, we know that another bulk of Antichrist’s army (possibly comes in later to create a pincer and reap the victory) which is coming from Iraq to Jordan towards the valley that runs east from Jerusalem to Jordan. Antichrist wants to enter this valley which is the normal approach route through the mountains for any army to attack Jerusalem from the east when Antichrist “passes Edom and Moab” and spares it, he heads towards Palestinian controlled Jericho.

I lived there for five years and know well that terrain. If Israel is to hit that army with a mini nuclear, the area (see also Zech 14 :12) where is the “Valley of The Passengers” is called Abarim which faces Jericho (Abarim literally means to pass, from Hebrew Eber, to pass through and the Hebrews passed through the Jordan River where Arab/Ereb is to wander, Eber which mean Hebrew is to pass through). Abarim is literally mentioned in the Hebrew and is a name of a place. If this is true, Antichrist does not personally enter the Jordan River and will not pass through to the promised land in his invasion.

The problem for many regarding some of my interpretation is that they equate Gog as a separate individual from the Antichrist. Today if you ask the average person about “Gog” they think that there are two gogs one comes before the Tribulation and another comes after the thousand years are over.

While there are two separate gogs, what the text is dealing with is the devil. These two ‘gogs’ are the same being who is the devil. The devil comes at some other time as well “And when the thousand years shall be finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go forth, and seduce the nations, which are over the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, and shall gather them together to battle …”

The Bible is clear, “satan” seduces “Gog”.

He comes as Antichrist and as “Gog” and as “King of Babylon” and as “Pharaoh of Egypt” and as “The Assyrian” and as “the man of sin”.

People keep inventing more personas. They did this with Christ before He came where there was a Messiah Ben-David and a Messiah Ben-Joseph.

If the Antichrist is “King of Babylon”, the Antichrist’s holy place excludes the holy places in ancient Babylon, since in all the biblical references in end-times context, this Babylon is equated with Arabia, Kedar and Dumah (see Isaiah 21). Mecca and the Kaaba therefore cannot be excluded and a Turk like Erdogan entering that holy place to Muslims would be a crucial issue to consider. Today Erdogan wants to be the protector of Mecca and Medina where he is currently working with the Saudi King alongside an alliance of ten Muslim states.

Al-Tahaluf Al-A’shari, literally the Ten Nation Confederacy which the media in English calls Ten Sunni-led Arab states was established in response to U.S. abandonment of Saudi Arabia and a response to Iran’s threat to the region, the Sunni Muslim world has risen to form a major unified force. The Coalition never informed the U.S. of its actions in Yemen fearing the U.S. is flirting with Iran.

Caricature of this new alliance is shown in the Arab media as a right-arm fist portruding out of the earth with the mark “There is No God But Allah and Muhammad Is His Messenger” the flag, badge and emblem of Islam stemming from Saudi Arabia. It is the pride of Muslims to mark their right arms and foreheads with the mark of Islam. It also reminds of Daniel 4 which speaks of Babylon leaving the tree stump of its roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze while re-arising, not in ancient Babel in Iraq, but in Dumma, Kedar and Arabia as Isaiah 21 prophesied prior to God’s final judgment “Babylon is fallen is fallen” (Isaiah 21:9, Revelation 18:1-2, Revelation 14:8) in which Iran will finally give it a death blow.

One wonders is this what the Bible speaks of, the ten horns representing ten kings, and all is left, is an eleventh, a little horn which comes up among them who is the Antichrist (Daniel 7:8, 11)?

One must admit, the temptation to make such declarations can arise as we see the events unfold on daily basis, but let the wise increase in patience which is the wisdom in not rushing to conclusion. The bronze nails in Daniel 7:19 points to a Grecian entity with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze (Daniel 7:19). There are ten nails and only time will tell if 20 to 30 other states (iron teeth) joins the ten nation confederacy under this umbrella. The Sunni Alliance fears Shiite talk of shift from Mecca to Karbala. Any harm on Saudi Arabia means to harm Islam’s Qibla, the direction to the image, the meteor in Mecca which over a billion Muslim prostrate towards daily and Erdogan to give protection to Saudi Arabia was allowed to enter the temple in order to raise his height to protector of Mecca.

WHY PEOPLE GET CONFUSED
Every time I write an article I always get comments that belong in a previous article. If one day I write why the false prophet is himself the Antichrist, I get the question on a different unrelated article asking me who is the false prophet. If we post an article on the corruptions made by Protestant reformer, Martin Luther (as if Martin was perfect), I get comments about how bad the Pope is (as if the Pope should be perfect), and if I criticize the Pope (who is not perfect) I get comments about Catholic venerations and why these are unbiblical. And if I deal with Catholic venerations, I get comments on why intercession of saints is wrong.

If I say “white” they say “black” and no matter what I say, they never focus on the topic. And when you ask the commenter questions they always never answer them and they quickly change the subject.

Then they would denounce me as a heretic and spread all sorts of suspicions while they claim to be “Holy Spirit filled” when all they are filled with is the “spirit of slander”.

The one question commenters never ask is this one: why Moses went crazy dealing with people?

This would be my question to everyone. Can someone tell me why Moses went crazy dealing with a bickering and complaining flock? If every Christian was able to answer that question from the Bible the world would be a better place. I find the most judgmental people who rebuke others calling them ‘judgmental’ are themselves are the most judgmental.

Almost everyone I talk to these days seem to think they personally know Jesus and are Holy Spirit filled. Yet when you examine their behavior you find all sorts of issues that are more related to an evil-spirit. Even if one can assume that the Pope behaved as bad as all the ‘King Herods’, and photos leaked him having a sensual party with some Salome giving him lap dances; should this be a deal breaker for Catholics? What if he was like the other Herod, Archelaus who went after the holy family? What if he was like Herod the madman who murdered his own family and a great many saintly rabbis?

If so, here is a Jesus style question: did Jesus refrain from entering the very Temple Herod had rebuilt and expanded?

Jesus went into the very Temple Herod built and there is no mention in Scripture of any criticism over Herod rebuilding it. Christ simply announced its destruction for rejecting Him. He even said to do what the Pharisees tell you to do, but do not do what they do. Never once did He denounce the authority of the Temple or the San Hadrian or the Pharisee for simply being Pharisee. To me its down with the Pope if he is evil and down with the Evangelical when he slanders. Can someone answer: would Jesus ever start new denominations calling for the destruction of the old institution?

Anyone who can answer this with a ‘yes’ would have set himself up for denouncing Jesus Himself who clearly said that He wants us to be one. As Christians we fight corruption wherever it is from the Antichrist spirit to the falling away. Prophecy was never intended to simply gauge the time, but to prepare and participate in the fight for rightouseness.

The biggest problem with Christians who say they love the Bible is that there are so many Bible lovers who isolate Scriptures. Countless denominations sprout over Scripture disagreements, all of which were caused by Luther who announced the Vatican as Harlot without examining all the verses.

Even the Antichrist, so many read a few verses and come up with fanciful conclusions.

Prophecy provided irrefutable markers. The devil, Jesus said, rules from Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-13) which today is in Turkey. We also have Isaiah 14 which calls the man of sin King of Babylon and in Isaiah 13 is the destruction of this King of Babylon’s holy city where the “Arab will no longer pitch his tent there” (Isaiah 13:20).

Arabs pitch tents in Arabia, not Rome.

He is also called Pharaoh of Egypt (Ezekiel 30) because obviously he enters Egypt (Daniel 11) where in Ezekiel 28 God tells us he is also the Prince of Tyre (he also rules Lebanon) and then Jeremiah tells us that Babylon’s destruction is “heard at the Red Sea” (Jeremiah 49:21).

Arabia and Mecca and Medina specifically are by the Red Sea and not Rome.

These are irrefutable geographic markers set by God Almighty. How dare anyone say “Rome”?

These are certain markers that are unquestionable and are so very clear. How could there be any doubt, especially when one reads God’s final judgment “Babylon is fallen is fallen” in Isaiah 21 where He points to Arabia.

Erdogan entering Babel and Mecca is significant.

If one would ask a westerner “Where is Mount Babel?” They would probably think the question is regarding a biblical or an archeological site in Iraq. But if one asks an Arab today, “where is Mount Babel?”

Al-Sharq Al-Awasat, the prominent Middle East Newspaper answers this question:

“The project Towers Of The House is the first project in Mecca … which carry seven towers … “Towers Of The House” is on the area of Mount Babel in Ajyad. The site overlooks directly on the Haram al-Sharif (Holy House [Kaaba]).”

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”? And where is such an Antichrist entering Bab-Illah (the Gate To Allah/Babel)?

Where in the Vatican did they erect the largest tower on earth topped with a crescent, which is also the very symbol of Turkey and has observatories to monitor the planets and the moon?

A Jesus style question would be: 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 except one: Mecca and the temple of the Kaaba.

The Gate of the Kaaba (made of pure gold)

Bab-Illah which Erdogan entered (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 Kaaba 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 …”

I dare anyone from the dishonest camp to refute. 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).

These high-towers will burn, somewhat of what we have seen in Dubai today. 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. He 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).

And again later, 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. To read more on how Mecca is destroyed, please read:

Today we have people wondering how could Israel miss their Messiah, yet these do not recognize that they too are just as confused. As I stated, before Jesus came, they thought there were two messiahs, one son of David (conquering Messiah) and another the son of Joseph (suffering Messiah).

In todays world they do not realize how they manufacture three comings of Jesus and two comings of two separate antichrists. Jesus comes to take us away for seven years then returns again to fight the Antichrist. This would constitute three, not two comings. Gog is another figure for Antichrist.

If one disagrees, we ask another Jesus style question: if Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38, was a separate event from the defeat of Antichrist, why is Israel made pure in Ezekiel 38:23-39:7-8 and why the heathen now know God in Ezekiel 38:16 and why is Christ present in Ezekiel 38:20? Are there now four comings; second coming for a rapture, and an extra one other coming to destroy Gog, and yet another coming to destroy the Antichrist?

The text here is very clear:

“And all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at my presence.” (Ezekiel 38:20)

“My fury shall come up in my face.” (Ezekiel 38:18).

This is a literal face—he is furious and angry. Not only is Christ present, but the destruction of both the Turkish Gog and the Antichrist is accompanied by an earthquake of unparalleled proportions: “For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken. Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground,” (Ezekiel 38:19-20).

Shake at my presence? In the same verse, we read about the earthquake and his presence on earth. This is not a small event. Every creature on the earth will shake at the presence of Jesus.

The other question I ask the lying unholy slandering spirits is this: how come that within two decades we so far were right, and so far they were all wrong? And if numbers and mega churches constitute truth, why was one man named Noah right while the whole earth drowned in death and in error?

        Here is link of the desecration from the sickos site – it has complete coverage – scroll towards bottom of the page to click on video – do you recognize any of the guttural sounds that he is making?http://churchofahriman.net/tag/dastur-adam-daniels/

    Why does everything Walid says make sense? And yes that was rhetorical 🙂 Although pitch used to be made from tree sap and not asphalt. Whole industries were based on it at one time

    • “Why does everything Walid says make sense?”

      Its because the ones who look for God’s sense are quite different than the world brother Smith. Happy New year to you and your family.

      • Smith

        Happy new year to you as well. And to your family

    Thank you! Happy New Year to the Shoebat crew… and to all the regular posters! God’s blessings, strength, and protection always!

    Have you all seen this photo of the Dubai fire yet? More than 1 have posted around the web. See the face & the cross below in the fire? Enlarge and check it out. I don’t know what (or who) I make of the face…

    • AnthonyM

      After your comment, I went back and could see a face also in article’s photo. Have to use a little imagination though.

    • have seen it, but can’t make the cross from the photo. Perhaps I am blind and you can help me see. Anyway, happy new year to you brother ace. Protection, strength and blessing to you too.

  • Walid, you have no idea how much impact you had on me. It has inspired me to start a blog so I could survey the Scriptures and Ante-Nicene Fathers on the Antichrist.

    By the way…a think tank is predicting that Turkey will invade Syria in 2016.

    • Kamau41

      Happy New Year Trevor. Looks like a very busy 2016 ahead. We must double our efforts on rowing and to be fully loaded.

    Walid-
    Very insightful and another very carefully detailed in-depth analysis updated discourse. Without question, these are very crucial developments occurring. Moreover, you have taught us well how critical it is to study history, geography along with the Holy Scriptures so that we can have a clearer understanding what is happening around us in our times, including prophetic events that are unfolding right before our eyes. Thank you for all of the incredible, educational, inspirational, thought provoking articles you have written this year to help awaken the sleepy heads and for watching over us. You have no idea how all of this has impacted my life. Happy New year and many blessings to you and your family and looking forward to continue to row on this great ship in 2016….

  • Wise words brother Paul. Wise words indeed. Happy New Year.

  • Indeed. But lets not write off the Temple in Jerusalem. We need to be open and see. But Prophecy rarely is fulfilled the way the masses see it. Think first coming, what prophecy said, what people said and how it was actually fulfilled.

  • Rom, thank you for putting up with us and happy new year to you too. You are becoming a member of this family.

  • Owen Schumacher

    Thanks for another blessed, challenging, and thought-provoking year of study and insight, Walid. You and your organization not only save Middle Eastern Christians but also Western Christian minds, which need renewal and understanding. 2015 was a year of strange events on the world stage, wasn’t it? It seems like just yesterday I recall you telling us to calm down because developments in the Middle East would take a decade or more to manifest, and yet here we are now talking about a soon coming Caliph and a renewed Ottoman Empire. Time flies. May you and your family be blessed, and may 2016 be a banner year for you and Rescue Christians.

    Also, for those who perceive Shoebat.com as obnoxiously Catholic and anti-Evangelical in its bias, I dare any Christian to disagree with your clear-cut admission in this latest article: “[D]own with the Pope if he is evil and down with the Evangelical when he is evil.” This statement, I think, does a good job in conveying your website’s agenda to call a spade a spade, regardless of that spade’s religious denomination. I look forward to returning to this website all during 2016, Walid. Take care!

  • Tom_mcewen

    Wow you got it. The holy Spirit is trapped in a universe of space and time, so he cannot see the future. Of course the city is the one where Jesus was killed, so the Romans must have moved him by ship to Rome. Damn you people are good and the pope is the Antichrist, right?

  • Kkdgrace

    Happy New Year to the Shoebat family! Thank you for the many articles and teachings. I may get distressed at times at what looks like a lot of infighting in the comment section, but overall everything has caused me to questions beliefs long-held and never considered. I’ve had the most amazing year, searching the history of Christianity and reading the writings left to us by the Church Fathers. Don’t think I’ll ever be the same again. All aspects of faith that I’ve previously held have come under scrutiny and I think that’s a GOOD thing! Blessings!

  • Michellemaria

    I wish a happy New Year to Walid and family, all who work at Shoebat’s and everyone here.

    • Happy news years to you too sister Michellemaria. Its going to be an interesting 2016.

  • Quote: “People keep inventing more personas. They did this with Christ before He came where there was a Messiah Ben-David and a Messiah Ben-Joseph.”

    Actually, the belief in two (2) Messiahs is what some teach in Orthodox Judaism. Orthodox believe that Moshiach ben Yosef (son of Joseph) must appear first to lead a fight for Israel but will be killed in battle. Shortly afterward, Moshiach ben David (son of David) will appear on the scene to destroy evil and set up God’s Kingdom on earth – ruling from Jerusalem. Some present-day Jews believe that the Third Temple has to be built first while others teach that Moshiach ben David will construct the Third Temple.

    There are two basic explanations of the “two Messiah” theory in Judaism:

    1) The “rabbinic” two Messiah theory which held to a Messiah the son of Joseph, sometimes called “Ephraim.” who would come and suffer to redeem his brothers (like the patriarch Joseph); and a Messiah the son of David who would come and rule from
    David’s throne forever.

    2) The “Qumran” two Messiah theory which held to a Priestly Aaronic Messiah and a
    Kingly Messiah.

    Also: The Talmud points out (Succah 52a), there are meant to be two Messiahs — redeemers of Israel. The first one, according to tradition, will descend from the line of Joseph, and die in battle, while paving the way for the final Messiah, who will descend
    from the line of David.

    • Ian Worby

      Don’t we see that Yeshua ( Jesus) came first as the suffering servant who humbled himself even to a bloody cross to be beaten and pierced as prophecied in Isaiah 52-53

      Many Jews have a blind spot of Yeshua because He did not over throw the Roman occupiers and establish His kingdom and bring in Peace with lion and lamb together.

      But we have the benefit of hind sight and can see he came first as the suffering servant and became our sin offering , but when He returns the second time it will be as the Trumphant King son of David ruling with a rod of Iron, judging ( yes including slaughtering) His enemies for how they treated his brethren (the Jews) and for dividing His land.

      We Know only a few were watching and saw His first arrival ( the shepherds, the madgi , a few godly priests ) because they understood the signs …

      We see that Yeshua fulfilled every prophecy down to the smallest details ( over 300 of them)

      Even His death wasn’t a tragedy but rather a wonderful accomplishment of the plan that had been prepared from the foundation of the earth.

      Yet for every prophecy for His first advent there are 7-8 for his second coming.

      So if the first were literally fulfilled (not vague allegorical allusions) how
      Much more will those prophecied concerning His second advent including the judgement of those peoples and nations who have conspired against the Lord and His people???

      So we don’t have two different messiahs , it’s the same eternal Prophet, Priest and King but Hemhad two very different tasks or
      Roles to perform according to His everlasting and sovereign Word.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Jesus is the builder of the last Temple – the ‘Son of David’ is the only one who can built the Temple, 2 Sam 7:12-16, Zech 6:12

      • Yes, I believe that as well, Julie. I was only pointing out that in Orthodox Judaism there is the belief that two Messiahs are to appear. However, Messianic Jews believe that Jesus is both, Moshiach ben Yosef and Moshiach ben David (the First and the Last). As Moshiach ben Yosef, He was the Suffering Servant and was crucified as the Blood Atonement for the sins of mankind and He will return again as Moshiach ben David to establish God’s Millennial Kingdom on earth – reigning from Jerusalem.
        Yet, There are Orthodox groups in Israel today who have already drawn the plans to construct the Third Temple. These are those who believe they have to physically build the Temple prior to arrival of Moshiach ben David. That is why it will be easy for them to be deceived by the one who establishes the false peace treaty that allows the Third Temple to be built right alongside the Dome of the Rock, and allow Muslims and Jews to worship together. These are the Jews who will welcome someone like Erdogan if he can help bring peace between the Muslim world and Israel. As Walid Shoebat has pointed out, this looks like a possibility that it is heading that way now. – Good to hear from you, Julie, and Happy New Year to you and yours. 🙂

        • Julie LaBrecque

          I should have given an intro before the verses – I will reject as an abomination to Christ any sacrifice offered other than the Eucharist – yet so many protestants, from what I have read, are eager for the Jews to institute animal sacrifices. Do you not believe that Jesus is already reigning on the throne of David – please read Acts 2:29-35, esp v.31 – ‘he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection.’ – David’s throne is in heaven.

          • Yes, indeed, Jesus Resurrected and is alive, pending His return to earth to reign from Jerusalem as Messiah ben David during the Millennial Kingdom, as prophesied. I had not heard that “many Protestants” are eager for the Jews to institute animal sacrifices. If that is the case, then they are not aware that Christ was the Ultimate Sacrifice for the sins of the people unto those who accept Him through faith. The Jewish restoration of animal sacrifices will take place when the Third Temple is built because Jesus was never accepted as the Jewish Messiah by Orthodox Jews and they sincerely believe that they need to revert to the Mosaic Laws 100% with their High Priest intervening on their behalf. Yet, the Holy Bible clearly states that Jesus is our High Priest and is alive for us to trust in and it is He who intercedes on our behalf.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            According to Jesus, all the dead are brought out of the tombs and judged when He returns – as He said, on the Last Day.

          • Hi Julie,

            Here is what I understand: When Christ returns, as Messiah ben David, He will defeat the antichrist, thus saving Israel from being destroyed and then He will set up a reign of 1000 years upon the earth. Satan will be bound and rendered powerless throughout that period. (Revelation 20:1-3) It is a time of true peace on earth and that’s when the swords are turned into plowshares and all people on earth will know that He is Lord. (Micah 4:3) During that Millennial Reign, the dead that had been beheaded for their faith in Christ during the Great Tribulation will be brought out of the tombs and there will also be 144,000 Jewish men from the 12 tribes of Israel who will partake in the world administration during that time.(Revelation 5:4-8 and Revelation 14:1-5)

            The rest of the dead do not rise until after the 1000 years is over. (Revelation 20:5)

            THEN, after the Millennial Reign, Satan is loosed out one more time to wreak havoc on whom he is able to but only for a short while. (Rev. 20:7-8) At the appointed time, Jesus defeats Satan once and for all and then comes the Great White Throne Judgment where all the living and dead will be brought forth to be judged by Jesus. Those whose names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will receive the punishment that Satan and the demonic angels receive. The earth as we know it will be replaced with a new heaven and a new earth where those who trusted in Christ will reign eternally, according to Biblical prophecy. (Rev. 20:9-15 and Rev. 21:1-27)

          • Julie LaBrecque

            How do you reconcile that with John 5:25-29 – it says ALL will come out of the graves, the good to resurrection of life and the evil unto the resurrection of damnation? Paul states essentially the same thing in 1 Cor 15:23-26 – and Peter states that the elements of the earth are burnt up at the Lord’s return, 2 Peter 3:10-13. Why do you think that Satan isn’t already bound – without him being bound, the nations would not have been able to receive the gospel.

          • I believe John 5:25-29 is referring to the time of the Great White Throne Judgment which happens after the Millennial Reign. According to the Bible, Satan is not completely bound right now as he will be during the 1000 years when Christ is ruling on earth for that period. During that time, the whole world will know that Jesus is Lord. So, while the Gospel is being spread right now as it has been since Christ first appeared, Satan is not really bound completely but is doing what he can to prevent people from knowing the Truth.

            1 Peter 5:-79New International Version (NIV)
            “Cast all your anxiety on him (Jesus) because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

          • John 5:25-29 and others you cited refer to the events of when the Great White Throne Judgment takes place – not during the Millennial Reign of Christ on earth.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            The millennial reign is now – can you tell me how their are any Trumps after the Last Trump?

          • Julie, please take your Bible and read what events take place during the Millennial Reign of Christ. Ref: Revelation Chapters 5; 14; 20 and 21 would be a good start. 🙂

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Jesus already bound Satan –

            Matthew 12:29 “Or how else can one enter into a
            strong man’s house, and plunder his goods, unless he first BIND the strong man? And then he will spoil his house.”

            Col 2:5 “Having disarmed principalities and powers, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

            John 12:31 “Now is the judgment of this world; NOW shall the prince of this world be CAST OUT.”

            Luke 10:17-18 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying ‘Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name. And he said to them, ‘I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.’”

            Luke 11:21-22 “When a strong man fully armed guards his palace, his possessions are safe. But when one stronger than he attacks and overcomes him, he takes away
            the armor on which he relied and distributes the spoils.”

            Mark 3:27 “But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property unless hefirst ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder all his house.”
            Does not Jesus now hold the Keys to death and hades? Rev 1:18.

          • Quote: “Does not Jesus now hold the Keys to death and hades? Rev 1:18.”
            Yes, that’s how He will bind Satan for 1000 years during the Millennial Reign and then do away with Satan and all evil at the Great White Throne Judgment.
            Julie, if Satan is bound, who do you think is influencing all the hatred, violence, murders, and movements against Jews and Christians, etc throughout the world today? There can only be True Peace on Earth when Satan is literally bound and rendered ineffective, but it is clear that, although he is being restrained with limited powers, Satan still has influence in this world much as in the time of Job and in the New Testament times when people were demonically possessed. Doesn’t the RCC partake in exorcisms? Why would there be a need if Satan’s influence was already bound?

          • Julie LaBrecque

            The increase of possessions in the last few years, per Head Exorcist Gabriel Amorth, is indicative that Satan is loosed. Please realize that chains allow movement.

          • IOW…Satan is bound right now, as you say, but still given some slack???? Hmmm….

            Julie, during the Millennial Reign of Christ is when Satan’s power will be completely bound through that period. Jesus will be reigning from Jerusalem and all the world will know that He is Lord. That is the time when, as stated in the Bible, swords will be turned into plowshares and the wolf and the lamb will all get along. There will be 100% Peace on Earth and Goodwill Toward All Mankind because Satan will have been locked up and rendered powerless. After the Millennial Reign, Satan is loosed one last time but only for a short period – then comes the Great White Throne Judgment, as mentioned through the Scripture chapters in the Book of Revelation.

            In the meanwhile, during this present time, Satan is called the “god of this world” and is doing all that is possible to keep people from believing in the Gospel Message of Christ.

            “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

            “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
            For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.”
            (2 Corinthians 4:3-5)

          • susan

            Did the split between the Catholic and Orthodox Church occur after one thousand years Julie? Sometimes I think I’m the only one who views the one thousand year Reign differently.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Roughly – but I interpret the thousand years as the entirety of the time of Jesus’ reign (The Church) and the time that Satan is bound – after Satan is loosed from his prison, he goes out to deceive the nations, bringing the Gog and Magog war (Rev 20:8, which is probably soon to occur.

          • susan

            “Which is probably soon to occur”.

            Apparently so Julie.

          • The verses you cite are in reference to the time of the Great White Throne Judgment. This happens AFTER the Millennial Reign of Christ on earth.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Not according to Jesus, Peter, and Paul.

    I love people who talk that they and the Holy Spirit are drinking buddies, Let be light was the creation of 6 x 10 to the 53kgs of matter in T0 at a millon degrees for a million years, 120 constants to make the universe to exist for 14 billion years and and 1 x10 to the 78 atoms whose life time is about 40 trillion years, at T1 minus x to the 43 space expanded so matter could in its way exceed the speed of light, but the Holy Spirit tells tales on the bible different to each
    Saint Aquinas a happy man who laughed and joked and wrote a incredible book on theology was silented by his vision, the Holy Spirit whispered to him and made him silent until his death. faith and reason. The Holy Spirit is not a magician.

      “The Holy Spirit is not a magician.” Truth. 🙂

      I wonder how many will read what you wrote in order to find fault with it.

      • Tom_mcewen

        Many I expect but then I respect the Holy Spirit as incredible power as the third peron of the Trinity and fear God.

    Thank you so much. I was so weary of the Dave Hunt interpretation and am now with all the anti-Catholic bigotry of a multitude of “born again” “spirit-filled” commenters, all in a “personal relationship” with God that empowers them to declare the Catholic Church a den of demonic vipers as they break the body of Christ. I’m deeply grateful to you.

    • I knew Dave Hunt and tried to reason with him severe times even during a TV interview. It was no hope.

  • 18patrioticfamily22

    Bless you!

    Well said.

    Dear Chef, for 2016 I went out and bought a new apron. My old one had a lot of stains from 2015 food fights. If you look in the kitchen you will find a new mop and bucket as well. I’m ready to make a new batch of sauce whenever you say. Happy New year to you, Maria, Ted, and the family. I also send my best to Keith and all the family at Rescue Christians.

    Another fantastic article to start the new year by Walid Shoebat…God bless you and Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year NorthernConserv!

    You walked past Truth. You were married in a Latin Rite Catholic ceremony but never got to know the Church.

  • Yes. Let me know if you want the answer with exact month, exact day, hour, or exact day, hour and second 😉

  • Thank you brother Timothy. Jesus bless you as well. And perhaps while you stand throwing crowns, I would be glad just to being a busboy in heaven.

  • “You also are saying that the temple in the bible is meccas temple when the bible doest say so”

    Show me where did I say that?

    Once you answer that, I can deal with the rest of your assumptions about me.

    Are you an SDA?

    Do you still have optimism in America’s part in all this? And where do the leftist globalist fit in to this? I feel the empire of iron and clay are the leftist globalist and the islamist two groups that would not mix together other then to destroy Jews and Christians.

  • Happy new years to you too Ian.

    The answer to your question is the mystery in which God said that He will put it in their heart to do such thing as stated in Revelation 17:

    “The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose”.

    God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose

    And this is why its impossible to answer your question since destroying the Kaaba does not make sense unless God puts it in their heart.

    Remember, Turkey historically shelled the Kaaba and destroyed the black stone during world war I with Sherif Hussein. Search “Shoebat” “Black Stone” and “Lawrence of Arabia” and see what I mean.

    Hope this answers your quest. Blessings to the land down under.

  • “The seas and the Holy Mountain.” I’m surprised Mt Athos and the Agean Sea isn’t up for grabs.

    We know. Peter and Tiberius cooked up a plan to steal the money from the citizens of the empire, but the Baptists would not join. Tiberius and Peter fell out immediately on who got the lion’s share, so the Romans fought, and there was not peace until 331when they came to agreement. After the fall of Rome, the catholics got all the money. They now have a trillions of dollars and a large network of hidden swiss soldiers, including torturers and hiried killers. They are involved in people smuggling, human sacrifice for medical organs anything to make money. The Jesuits are the enforcer’s of silence. The cardinals wear red to show they are made men, the red hat alone represents 100 dead Christians mostly children. Yes we know.

  • The beast that was, and is not, I am a firm believer referred to the Greek Empire because no other empires could conquer the Persians after Alexander the Great. I think that’s why we hardly hear of Turkey or Iran throwing insults at each other or threatening military action.

  • Grandmere

    Every one sees it that way.

  • joe

    Once I read that Edrogan wasn’t the first to enter these gates I then didn’t care. whats so special if others have done it in the past and It looks like they don’t enter alone. theres like a lot of people with them. why is this so special?

    • O not much, just the guy who wants to be caliph, thats all. O what a Caliph anyway, not much, right?

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Would you ask your pastor (or whoever it is/was teaching you this) how this can be in light of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 –

  • Happy New Year to you too Joe M.

  • I did NOT prevent you from posting comments. It takes a while to have hundreds of comments moderated.

    ‘God’s War on Terror’ by Walid Shoebat.

  • He did. You’r just too blind to see it:

    “Hello Larry. The 7 kings which are ALSO 7 mountains on where the woman sits. Mountains represent powers, govts, empires. Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome.”

    The city spiritually rules these empires. There are provisos of course in which John specified the type of kingdom this spiritual harlot rules (Leopard (Greco-Roman), Bear (Persian)) by the mouth of the Lion (Babylon) and this Babylon is never referenced by any of the ancient cities; no Babel, Sumer, Accad, Calneh, Erech … juts Tema, Dedan, Kedar and Arabia. Have at it and search the Scriptures for these names and you will see how “Babylon” is referred to with Tema, Kedar, Dedan and Arabia.

    Scripture no longer counts?

    Your other problem is your use of “the whole world”. Had you search Scripture for the “whole earth” you would see that its use is not as you think in 21 century.

    No one was trying to give you lectures or preaching.

    As to your “whole earth” argument, if you insist on it, please refute:

    http://shoebat.com/2012/04/18/where-is-america-in-bible-prophecy/

    Now lets see who truly wants to “lecture”

  • God give ma patience.

    Yes, 5 have passed away at the time John wrote his verses: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Med-Persia and Greece (Asia Minor etc…)

    All these today are Muslim, not “Catholic”.

  • Turkey was part of the Greek empire. The Seleuid Dynasty that sprang up after Alexander’s death, and it is that dynasty which is making a comeback. Study the maps of the four Greek dynasties after Alexander’s death and you’ll see what I mean.

  • What you have said made zero sense.

  • I honestly think it was Mohammad who fit the description of the king acknowledging not the gods of his fathers or the desire of women. After all, Mecca once housed 360 idols before Mohammad conquered Mecca and abolished all the idols, and in their places put in the black stones that all Muslims to this day still worship.

    I encourage you to examine the doctrine of Sufism, which teaches that man can become a god within Islam, and it is becoming the movement that are being touted as the solution to the “Muslim problem.” Shoebat have been documenting the theology behind Sufism. Google “Shoebat and Sufism.”

  • You’r welcome Michael.

  • You’r very welcome Joel. Blessings to you and to the Philippines.

  • Julie,

    I spoke to Theo. One thing we do not want to do is to give these people the attention they want. This is why they do this. However, if you write the article, Theo says he will contribute to it and add his view as well and we will post it.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Your view is the same as that of Archbishop Coakley – don’t give them attention, that is what they are wanting. I won’t bother with writing anything, just let it lay, but I will be monitoring Mr. Daniels and his wife.

  • Tom_mcewen

    A sentence has a subject, what was yours? That Rome is the city where Christ was crucified ? I read the whole bible 73 books not stand alone verses. The Vatican is not inside the ancient walls of imperial Rome.

  • Tom_mcewen

    That is okay when John was the Catholic Bishop of seven churches in what is now Turkey and wrote the book there were no protestants to interpret the bible either.

  • “and so shall we ever be with the Lord”

    In the clouds?

    Its either He lands or He ascends?

    Which is it? And do you have proof of either this or that? No.

  • Only your’e comment is nonsense. Have you spent a minute or two to search Kedar, Dumah, Teman, Arabia and Edom in the Bible? Where are these? Are they not in Arabia where Mecca is?

  • That is there goal David. Rebel against God and stand with Antichrist.
