What are these forces doing in Libya? It is all about World War III. According to the leaked notes of the meeting in the week of 11 January, seen by the Guardian, King Abdullah confirmed his country’s own special forces “will be imbedded [sic] with British SAS” in Libya. He told those present:
“The problem is bigger than Isil [Islamic State], this is a third world war, this is Christians, Jews working with Muslims against outlaws.”
The memo indicates that Abdullah also told US lawmakers: The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, “believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region” and the “fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy, and Turkey keeps getting a slap on the hand, but they get off the hook”.
Besides King Abdallah, even Newsweek recognizes what we have been saying all along, Erdogan is the “aspiring Caliph”:
There is a broad sense, election results notwithstanding, that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is out of control. He is imprisoning opponents, seizing newspapers left and right and building palaces at the rate of a mad sultan or aspiring caliph. In recent weeks, he has once again threatened to dissolve the constitutional court. [underlines theirs].
Erdogan is building “tabernacles” (mosques) galore “between [two] seas” from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Daniel 11:45 has many facets. He is changing set times and laws while King Abdullah is warning us of World War III.
Are we nearing an Armageddon in Europe, why Europe, and how long will it be before Jesus comes?
THE BIBLE ON EUROPE?
The terrorism we have seen in Belgium and France was predicted by John of Vatiguerro during 13th century “Spoliation, pillaging, and devastation of that most famous city which is the capital and mistress of France will take place when the church and the world are grievously troubled.”
France is the focus of so many predictions. Who would have ever dreamt that the most powerful nation on earth would be ruled by a Muslim like Obama well disguised as Christian. The repeat of the Obama trick is not far-fetched these days. An Old Saxon prediction talks of an Obama-like figure who claims Christianity, yet is a Turk and will rule Germany while France will refine to combat these evil forces:
“The seven-headed city, now more admirable than Jerusalem, shall be a place more desolate than Jerusalem. The Dog shall enter Germany but shall afterwards forsake his master and choose for himself a new man, whereby Scripture shall be fulfilled. This Dog shall signify the Turk which shall forsake his Mohammed and choose unto him the name Christian, which is a sign the day of doom is at hand, when all the earth is subject unto God, or that all people acknowledge one only God. The Fleur-de-Lys (lily) and France shall live long at variance, but at last agree. Then shall the clear Word spring forth and flourish throughout the world.”
France has so many predict about it will rise to shine. Although all private prophecy must be approached with great caution, but biblically, most look at the signs of the times from the perspective of what goes on in Jerusalem while ignoring the church built by Christ. Who pays attention to single verses that are extremely powerful:
“For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
I had spent two decades explaining to the sleepy about the rise of Islam. Today few question after reading our findings covering the ” lightning comes from the east”. Now I must spend another two decades explaining “flashes to the west”: the European front of this coming Armageddon.
“For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be,” Christ lands in the east (Jerusalem) and like “lightening” moves towards the West “where the carcass is there the eagles will be gathered“. We do have the birds of prey consume the flesh of warriors:
“At my table you will eat your fill of horses and riders, mighty men and soldiers of every kind,’ declares the Sovereign LORD” (Ezekiel 39:20).
However, in Matthew 24 it is a different issues which I will explain later.
This is the Marriage Supper of God with His bride (the saints) “the marriage feast of the Lamb are fortunate!” (Revelation 19:9) where “multitudes and multitudes in the Valley of Vision”; Christ with His saints will destroy Islam’s army where Islam demands “great and small,” “young and old,” “multitudes and multitudes in the Valley of Vision”.
Christ’s yoke is easy, as easy as it is to put His puzzle together. As Christ’s message went to defeat the works of the devil, and so it shall be with the coming of the Son of Man; so that if St. Mark travelled, preached and defeated the works of the devil in Judea, Lebanon, Syria, Antioch, Cyprus, Paphos, Pamphylia, Rome, Colossi, Venice and Aquila and Egypt, and so it shall be with Christ’s coming where we find Him during His Second Coming in these very regions warring with the Antichrist defeating the works of the devil.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)
And if Paul journeyed to Arabia, Turkey, Rome and throughout Europe where the strength of Christendom once was, and so Christ will come to fight the unitarian heretic Muslims including all schisms and refine His bride.
And so Christ will track where He went (represented by His ambassadors) to defend the Church and defeat God’s enemies and re-establish His church “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not stand against it“. Christ was not exclusively Jerusalem-centric, but church-centric, and this will be the time where the saints can shine. If the refined only knew, never before in history the Christian had such an opportunity as now, for Noah, when the entire earth fell-away, he shined. God even declares this, who participates in “the marriage feast of the Lamb are fortunate!” (Revelation 19:9).
And if in doubt that Christ’s expeditions into warfare during Armageddon matches the journeys of His disciples, one should wonder why we find prophecies in scripture where Christ comes to fight in the same path as His disciples, where St.Mark evangelized Egypt, in Isaiah 19, we find Christ coming to defend Egypt’s saints: “Behold, the Lord comes riding on the clouds and is coming into Egypt. The idols of Egypt will totter before Him …”
And if St. Mark went to Lebanon, we also find Christ fighting in Lebanon (Isaiah 10:34) “Lebanon shall fall by the Mighty One [Messiah]”.
And when Paul went to Asia Minor, we also find Christ going to and fighting in Turkey (Zechariah 9:13) “He goes with the whirlwinds of the south [going north]” to “Yavan” (Ionia).
And if Paul went to Arabia, there we also find Christ fighting in Arabia (Habakkuk 3) where Paul spent some time: “God came from Teman” from battle “rays flashed from his hand”.
He comes as “lightening from east to west”.
1 John 3:8 packs a major punch to crush the head of the serpent. I learned long ago never to read a verse haphazardly as the lazy servants do.
He also goes westwards and the “Isles” (Mediterranean western coast) when Antichrist “turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many” (Daniel 11:18). And in Ezekiel:
“Shall not the isles shake at the sound of thy fall [Antichrist’s fall], when the wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the midst of thee?” (Ezekiel 26:15)
So few who read and ponder all these little verses that pack everything. In Arabia, where Paul travelled and warned about that desert in Galatians 4, Christ makes His case and proclaims the Trinity in a single solid verse:
“From the time that it was [from the beginning was The Word], I [God the Son] was there; and now the Lord God [The Father] and His Spirit [The Holy Spirit] Have sent Me [The Son].” (Isaiah 48:16).
Amazingly, Christ even addresses there the heresies of Mecca:
“All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The LORD hath loved him [the Messiah]: he will do his pleasure on Babylon [Arabia], and his arm [Messiah, God’s Arm] shall be on the Chaldeans [Iraq and Arabia].” (Isaiah 48:14, see Isaiah 28, Babylon is Arabia “Babylon is fallen is fallen, see Rev 14, 18)
This is some huge expedition which scriptures give us only hints, while most think that Christ only lands on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.
Such one hint, as “the seed of the woman” bruised by the serpent, entails the whole New Testament. Just imagine, when her seed (Messiah) crushes the serpent’s head. One should ponder, this half-verse entails another newer Testament, which we are about to review … live.
While many cry out ‘Jesus is coming next year’ they have been saying this since the Jews started saying “next year in Jerusalem”. Try at least next couple decades and even then I might be underestimating.
What is to come, is what we see happening in Europe, which is quite the shift, we have several reasons why the end is not yet. What is emerging prophetically during the falling-away is the Refinement Phase as “refinement is by fire” where God’s people will go through the process to being separated as Sheep are separated from Goats.
A verse or two in the Bible is all it takes. And it takes a while to accomplish. Few consider, this divide (sheep vs. goats) is not simply between pagan and Christian, but within what is considered Christendom since it is the judgment of the Church on the basis of defending the faith when serious persecution comes. (Matthew 25)
Such refinement will include the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal), the Italian peninsula, southern France and Greece is about to see some serious refinement. Also included are the Visegrad group of countries (Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic); Serbia, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovania, Romania, Belgium, Bulgaria to later encompass England.
The strongest critics of the E.U and NATO (which Turkey is under NATO) will be with the league of the righteous, while Germany and other splits in the North will be with the league of the unrighteous.
How else can the sheep vs. the goats be accomplished, especially if one views the text, it is clearly a national division:
“All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats” (Matthew 25:32).
This is a national division. How else will this be fulfilled:
In Istanbul (Constantinople), the cross will replace the half-moon of Islamism, and Jerusalem will be the seat of a King. The southern Slavs will form a great Catholic Empire and drive out of Europe the Turks (Mohammedans), who will withdraw to North Africa and subsequently embrace the Catholic Faith. [Brother Louis Rocco, 19th century]
These would be the main population of the Central and Southern European countries of Bulgaria Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.
When I first wrote on Bible Prophecy, many believed that my proposal was a regional war in the Middle East, where so many objected, complained and slandered ridiculing me falsely of being “Muslim centric”.
This is not true. It takes two decades to explain one half of the puzzle and another two decades to explain the other half.
I focus none on the fool, the slanderer, the lazy and the tare, for my soul is a sacrifice for the wheat as required of me by the Lord in Matthew 25.
The Battles of Armageddon are global. My focus since two decades ago was on the epicenter: the Middle East. How else can the Christian understand where the threat is stemming from if I focused only on Europe?
Europe will be the receiving end of this Muslim invasion where European ‘Judases‘ will stand with Islam while other European ‘Arimatheans’ and even from the Muslims world; there would be ‘Cyreneans’ who will carry their cross and walk with Christ while He suffers hunger, imprisonment and nakedness, just as there were Palestinians who saved Jews from massacres in Hebron. The killing of righteous people who are even Muslim should be recognized as King Abdallah stated that secular Muslim states will also stand with Christians. Such nations will also see the light of Christ in the end.
The war in Europe has begun. A sign in Madrid Spain questioned “Today Brussels, tomorrow Madrid?” It was planted by Hogar Social Madrid, (Madrid Social Home) in front of a mosque while demonstrating with fire flares and banners that say “MOSQUES OUT OF EUROPE” in response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels.
No van a criminalizar a la comunidad musulmana. Luchamos juntos contra el terrorismo. Convivencia = ciudades seguras pic.twitter.com/NFMCN78iBd
— Ahora Madrid (@AhoraMadrid) March 22, 2016
“The first images of actions taken a moment ago against Islamic terrorism at the M-30 mosque in Madrid, which finances the Islamic State: MOSQUES OUT OF EUROPE,” states the post in Spanish.
To give you an idea how active is Hogar Social Madrid is, here, check this out:
The reaction in Europe shows a clear divide. The left-wing party Ahora Madrid, took to social media to denounce the actions taken against the mosque: “Do not go and criminalize the Muslim community,” the official party account wrote. “We are fighting together against terrorism. Coexistence = safe cities.”
Sounds familiar? But the claim that Syria’s crisis is the reason for this mass immigration has become a farce in the mind of Europeans and the right sees that the Muslim refugee crisis is some Abaddon and Apollyon the Destroyer; a kingdom of an army of invading locusts that shot out of the mouth of the devil- dragon (Rev 12).
Refugees of war do not usually have mass sex-attacks in Cologne and a “French 9/11” which was one of the largest tragedy in all of French history, and the Paris attack was one of the biggest attacks in Paris since WWII.
Muslim writers like Catherine Shakdam tries to paint European groups objecting to Muslim invasion as “a historical flashback like the 1930’s Germany, when the Third Reich was getting momentum”.
But Europeans are waking up to the leftist and Muslim propaganda. The collapse of the Soviet Union, when leftist forces had achieved such a level of legitimacy, has now transferred their alliances with Muslims.
Today in Europe there are many who are drawing a line in the sand to fight the epidemic: The National Front in France, Golden Dawn in Greece, Lega Nord in Italy, the Freedom Party of Austria and PEGIDA in Germany.
For example, one can easily see below how fast the right is growing in France’s elections. In 2011 the pink color (just think sissy color) was the left and in 2015 the right (blue) is overwhelming. Prophecies even speak of regions like Wallonia which comprise 55% of Belgium and prophecies of civil struggles between Northern and Southern Europe!
This would mean Belgium could split, north Italy from southern Italy, Spain could also have a split and Europe will fracture further.
Ever notice today in Europe Separatism and Regionalism is also another recent growing phenomenon.
And we are not only talking of separating from the European Union. What we are seeing, to say it bluntly, includes a Catholic-Protestant divide.
Europe is an artificial construct. The French aren’t so keen on Germans telling them it’s time to lose their sovereignty. Many European states see that Europe is under the control of Germany and its Baltic and European sidekicks. Nationalism is God made. He planed it right after the Tower of Babel and He will keep it that way. There will be no One World Order and all the conspiracy theories will soon vanish.
The Italians, Spaniards, Portuguese and even the English are feeling enormous closeness to Tsipras of Greece where northern Europe is polarized against southern Europe.
The French sociologist and political scientist at the National Institute of Demographic Studies in Paris, Emmanuel Todd, probably one of the highest authorities on the subject states:
“The political strongholds of the German Social Democrats are in the Protestant regions of Germany. They are even further to the north, even more antagonistic toward the “merry-go-round Catholics” of the continent’s south. In the end, what it comes down to is not at all a left-right conflict, it is a cultural conflict as ancient as Europe itself … On the other side there is the Europe that is more inclined toward the Lutheran world; which is the world of two-thirds of Germany, most of the Baltic and Scandinavian countries, and you might add to it the Polish sidekick; even though Poland is Catholic, it never belonged to the Roman Empire. Really, what is surfacing is something extraordinarily deep.”
There will be splits within states. Today we have Catalonia, which is fighting for its sovereignty from Spain. This is no longer theory but is already in process. In September of 2015, the coalition of regional separatists won in the elections to the regional parliament. (62 places out of 135). In November, the parliament of Catalonia accepted the resolution of independence of Catalonia from Spain (according to the resolution, within 18 months Catalonia will secede from Spain, during this 18 months the necessary government structures of a new state will be created in Catalonia and a new constitution will be written).
In Italy the “Lega Nord” party, since 1994, are anti-American pro-Russia which has been fighting for the independence of the north regions from the south.
The United States push for nations to be under NATO has a backlash in nations like Serbia which fears American and Turkish influence from NATO.
The pro-American prime-minister of Montenegro, Milo Djukanovich, who is well known by his relationship with the international criminal community, especially with the Italian mafia is causing many to re-consider American hegemony.
Europe will first weaken as result of a major civil-unrest unlike anything we have seen which will be sparked as result of biological terrorism and mass terror attacks that would dwarf what we have seen between 2015-2016.
Then we have the Christianization of Kievan Rus’ led Russians’ ancestors to the Orthodoxy and the Eastern Christianity.
After the Fall of Constantinople, the Principality of Moscow took a mission to be a stronghold of the Eastern Christianity. This is the Third Rome which comes against Turkey to end the Antichrist once and for all. The glimpse of this we have seen live when Erdogan caused havoc in Syria quickly got “bad news from the north” (Russia, Daniel 11:44) where Erdogan also desired to rule Iraq (ancient Babylon) setting up encampments there. He is getting ready to qualify as “King of Babylon” (Isaiah 14:4, a title given to Antichrist).
Today we find in Europe grudging admiration for Russia’s Vladimir Putin because he publicly rejects the moral relativism of the West and observes traditional Christian concepts of right and wrong. Putin is the anti-Obama, moving to occupy the cultural-moral vacuum left by America and if someone like Donald Trump wins, America and Russia will unite. While currently, we celebrate multiculturalism, LGBT rights, and abortion on demand, Putin repudiates such values and the conservatives are unaffected by the typical social arm-twisting techniques. When Western politicians and media rail against Putin’s annexation of Crimea as a violation of American hegemony, Putin invokes patriotism and says Crimea belonged to Russia from time immemorial and that most of its people are Russians who want to return to Mother Russia.
Europe is now known for secessionism where Scots, Catalans and Venetians want independence and become the countries they once were. They too are not paying any attention to social pressure or the epithets used by the left being racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, fascist. The overuse of such slogans has now lose their toxicity and affect and we are seeing the media ineffective in forming people’s minds.
Just this week, a fresh blow to the EU showed that 53 per cent of the French voted in favour of holding a UK-style referendum on the country’s membership.
We must not also forget the Greeks who found themselves under the Ottoman Empire, thus, only Russia remained the carrier of true Orthodoxy not only as the religion, but also as the Empire.
It is here where Christ through refinement will finally fix the Great Schism as several attempts to unite the Churches failed. Even the Protestant Schism, for England, it will be corrected:
|f 17. St. Edward (11th century). “The extreme corruption and wickedness of the English nation has provoked the just anger of God. When malice has reached the fullness of its measure, God will, in His wrath, send to the English people evil spirits [protestant reformers, Luther, Zwingli, Calvin] who will punish and afflict them with severity by separating the green tree from its parent stem [Catholic] the length of three furlongs. But at last this same tree, through the compassionate mercy of God and without any national assistance, shall return to its original root, reflourish, and bear abundant fruit. ” (St. Edwards. Catholic prophecies collected by Yves Dupont)
Although all private prophecy must be approached with great caution, this prediction by St. Edwards, King of the Anglo-Saxons, was etched in the 11th century speaking of the Anglican schism as predicted centuries before its actual occurrence.
While some though St. Edward, the King of the Anglo-Saxons, was off the mark concerning the duration of the schism thinking a “furlong” meant to be a century, the separation of the Church of England (or Anglican Church) from Rome under Henry VIII, began in 1529 and if a furlong was around 200 rods, this would put us at around six centuries later. I would not recommend we use this as date setting. However, it tells us of a message. Regardless, there are ample predictions that set the 20-21 centuries as the time of the end.
The powers at play are NATO, Russia and the E.U which will break up to form north and south. Much has to happen before we get to a split between progressive socialists and conservatives in Europe and a reunification between Catholic and Orthodox. Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov (1853 – 1900) was sympathetic to the Roman Catholic Church. He favored the healing of the schism – (ecumenism, sobornost) between the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. One church in Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) is Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom) in the early fourth century CE which united all Orthodox to aspire to regain it from the Turks. In Byzantium, Wisdom was most commonly portrayed as Christ Logos and in the Council of Ephesus in 431 the church officially proclaimed Mary to be Theotokos.
It was Tolstoy who taught a passive love and the social gospel which Solovyov refuted and revealed that in the ends of days the church is obsessed with openness and love for dialogue and where Christ’s name is always invoked to instantly be ignored and a completely foreign theology is taught.
All this has to first be defeated. But this will be quickened with war since death toll and disaster is the best refiner. In the meanwhile, what we see has been predicted as far back as 430 AD:
After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognisable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonour and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognisable. Peoples appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to there shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents or elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right hand way from the left. At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and the Church will change. People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society. (St. Nilus, 430 AD)
All you date setters, stop, Nilus never said that the Antichrist would come in the 20th century “when the time for the advent of the Antichrist approaches” is ‘as we get closer to’.
St. Cyril of Jerusalem, 386 AD says that Antichrist “shall seize the power of the Roman Empire“. In other words, he takes Europe by force. He invades Europe from without.
This is why I differ with so many who apply quick-and-dirty interpretations of prophecy, where allegory in Revelations is central focus, while literals are pretty much ignored.
The Roman Empire was seized by the Ottoman when Constantinople fell in 1453 AD. This is the Muslim prophecy when they say “first Constantinople” (in Muslim view on their version of prophecy). Now comes “then Rome”, this the second seize of Europe itself.
Many await a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, yet St. Hippolytus, 236 AD, says that “Christ showed His flesh as a Temple, and raised it up on the third day; and he, too, will raise up again the Temple of stone in Jerusalem.”
It is Christ who will build a temple in Jerusalem and not Tribulation Jews. It is the body that is the temple which Antichrist desecrates by imposing a mark on the “wing of the temple” (body) which is the right shoulder.
St. Hippolytus’ grandfather who was old enough to remember the Apostle John wrote of the Antichrist “The Great Gaulish Monarch, who shall subject all the East, shall come around the end of the world.” He first subjects “all the east”. Many when they see “Gaulish” focus on central Europe (“Noric”) but the Gaulish also includes the Balkans, and Asia Minor (“Galatian”) in Turkey.
It matters not what people think. What the devil does; what socialist; Islamists; and the God hating spiritual plagues do to Christ’s Christendom; Christ will ensure it is all put to good use; it will ensure the sweetness of the fruit. He will choose form the nations as He has planed, separating them sheep from goats through fire. If in doubt just look at Russia and France. Where the liberal and socialist is, there you will find the Muslim killing them and by that God allows the devil his way to refine the remnants. The faster they repent the less suffering they will endure, the slower they repent, the more suffering they will endure.
