The decision by the Vatican to grant diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine has reignited speculation in the biblical end-time prophecy blogosphere about supposed evidence identifying Pope Francis as the end-time “False Prophet” and the Vatican as the “Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots” described in the Book of Revelation.

Many biblical evangelical end-time pundits are saying that the move by the Holy See to grant diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine gives support to longstanding speculation that the Catholic Church is the “Great Harlot” described prophetically in the Revelation 17: 15-17.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.”

End-time prophecy pundits also argue that Pope Francis’s alleged leftist tendencies identify him as the “False Prophet” described in Revelation 19:19-20.

“And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” 

What this means in the eschatological scheme of evangelicals is that Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church will play a role in the coalition of the forces of evil against “true” Christians (that is, evangelical Christians) and the state of Israel during the period of the “Great Tribulation” preceding the Second Coming of Jesus.

Evangelical Christians believe that the state of Israel is central to biblical end-time events that will usher in Armageddon, the final apocalyptic battle between the cosmic forces of good and evil. Biblical end-time conspiracy theorists also believe that left-leaning progressives who support the statehood of Palestine and criticize Israel’s policy in the Middle East are part of the coalition of the New World Order (NWO) forces of evil that will fight Israel and Jesus at the Second Coming.

However, many end-time pundits say there aren’t any clear indications yet about the identity of the “Beast” or “Antichrist,” the major player in biblical end-time events. While some have speculated that it could be President Barrack Obama, others deny it, saying that the Beast, identified cryptically by the number 666, is yet to be revealed.

Is Obama the antichrist?

Regardless, evangelical analysts of Middle East affairs say that the latest move by the Holy See will lend legitimacy to the struggle for statehood by the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas.

The Palestinian authorities have embarked on a strategy to move beyond the stalled U.S.-sponsored peace negotiations with Israel by seeking international support. The Palestinian Authority (PA) won a nonmember observer state status for Palestine in the U.N. in 2012.

Palestinian analysts described the Vatican announcement as a significant victory because of the international stature of Pope Francis and the global influence of the Catholic Church.

The New York Times quotes a senior Palestinian official saying that “The Vatican is not just a state. The Vatican represents hundreds of millions of Christians worldwide, including Palestinians, and has vast moral significance.”

Meanwhile, the Israeli authorities watch with growing concern the widening acceptance of the legitimacy of the Palestinian quest for statehood by the international community. The United Nations and several European states have made clear their acceptance of the legitimacy of the aspiration of the Palestinians for independent statehood.

Several European parliaments passed resolutions supportive of Palestinian statehood last year.

Israel’s foreign ministry expressed disappointment at the decision by the Vatican and said it would not “advance the peace process.”

Salon reports that David Harris, head of the American Jewish Committee, said the decision by the Vatican to recognize Palestine, “a state that, in reality, does not yet exist, is a regrettable move, counterproductive to all who seek true peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”

The statement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before the March 17 elections that he would not support a peace agreement that leads to the establishment of a Palestinian state has only helped to increase skepticism in the global community about the commitment of his government to the two-state solution.

Following Netanyahu’s statement, the Obama administration threatened to “reassess” U.S. relations with Israel, while several European countries increased pressure on the Israeli authorities to end the occupation of the West Bank.

However, the Vatican announcement did not come as a surprise to those who have followed the development of the relationship between the Holy See and the PA since 2012 after the U.N. officially recognized Palestinian statehood.

Negotiations that culminated in Wednesday’s announcement have been on since 2012.

The Vatican announced the new treaty only days before Pope Francis was due to canonize two Palestinian nuns, Marie Alphonsine Ghattas and Mariam Bawardy.

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

IPGII_POSTER_1920x1080

 

A few days ago I posted The Mysteries of CERN and The Unknown at my LogosApologia.org website featuring links to my recent appearance on the Jim Bakker show with my On the Path of the Immortals co-author Tom Horn. Tom wrote a very interesting chapter “Secrets of the CERN Stargate” that becomes more prescient each day. Within science, the portal concept is perfectly respectable, explaining why the research director at CERN, physicist Sergio Bertolucci, said that  the LHC could open a door and,“Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it.” That early statement form the research director set the tone for the ongoing discussion of interdimensional  and braneworld portals.

Scientists theorize that the particle collisions withing the LHC might tear a small hole into four dimensional space-time, creating a tiny worm hole. In order to manufacture a large traversable wormhole, one would start at the particle level and stretch it up to navigable size. Even so, a new study proposes that all spiral galaxies (like our Milky Way) already feature wormholes and may even feature a “galactic transport system“.

In Bible prophecy, such a portal is opened to the bottomless pit releasing genetic monstrosities led by an immortal supernatural being.

“They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.” (Revelation 9:11)

Many passages speak of  otherworldly “gates” (Gen 28:17; Mat 16:18 ) and God often speaks “out of the whirlwind,” (Job 38:1) making models of a traversable wormhole (which would seem like a whirlwind or vortex) an intriguing explanation.

Earlier today, Sharon Gilbert asked me to type IPETGOATII into google maps in order to observe the result. The result was CERN. I also tried it with Google Earth and my top two results were CERN and the Dome of the Rock! So why are these addresses associated with the film?

Google Earth result"I Pet Goat"

Why is google directing this term to CERN? Are we implying by our search associations that CERN beckons the apocalypse? Is Google having some fun? If you are not yet familiar please watch the short film I Pet Goat II and check out the website at http://www.heliofant.com/.

The film gets its title from elementary school reader My Pet Goat the children were reading from when George Busch Jr. was in the classroom on 9/11. The film proposes that the events of 9/11 were orchestrated as a mass exposure occult ritual. Even the classroom itself is part of the spell! I found this to be especially creepy, check out the vocabulary the teacher pulls out while Bush looks on.

Kite, Plane, Must, Hit, Steel

Seriously, it seems like more than coincidence! Was this all orchestrated (including the kid’s lesson) as an elaborate public yet occult ritual?

The film presents an apocalyptic scenario in which all world religions merge under a central universal messiah that looks like Jesus (yet features the all seeing eye on his forehead). The film is dark as Drako the sorcerer controls the world through finance, an idea also concordant with prophecy, “so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.(Re 13:17) However, the New Age looking Jesus traveling down the river Styx of the Egyptian underworld at the close of the film leaves me disappointed and pondering the producer’s worldview…

The film seems to be missing the blessed hope of the return of Christ. Because of that, I wonder if the film makers are more or less secular members of the truth movement? Perhaps viewing all religion as tool of the elite and not accounting for the triune God and His church leads them to uncertainty. Even so, it all fits within biblical prophecy — as many are now recognizing. The argument from prophecy is winning many truthers to Christianity.

If the occult and supernatural are real, then consider that Bible prophecy speaks to these power elites who are conducting the rituals:

“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”(Psalm 2:1–3)

“and the light of a lamp will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery.”(Revelation 18:23)

John the Revelator was the original globalist conspiracy author… God has revealed himself. I found this analysis helpful:

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

This video traces the trail of foreign gods that were introduced to the Israelites in Egypt and still remain with us, all the way to the present day. They will play a major role in the coming deception as being portrayed as our creators and as an advanced alien race just as described in the movie Prometheus. They are of course fallen angelic beings and they wish to destroy mankind the end game is approaching.

According to the Book of Enoch, 200 fallen angels descended to the top of Mt. Hermon before Noah’s flood. These corrupt angels entered Earth through a “space portal” and proceeded to pollute the human genome. What is their connection to the UFO crash in Roswell? Was this an orchestrated event? How is this connected to the Transfiguration?

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky.”

Islamic Spring.

Several Islamic clerics called on Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi to destroy the great pyramids and finish the work of Mohammad companion Sahabi Amr bin al-As.
AINA reported:

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids–or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself–deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran–was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not–even if Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers “de-nosed” the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is “pious” enough–if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.

Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage–starting with Islam’s prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia’s Ka’ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.

In December the Salafist Party in Egypt, which just won 20 percent of the vote, wanted to cover the “idolatrous” Giza pyramids with wax.

Now they want to blow them up.

Vatican says Israel’s existence as Jewish state has nothing to do with the Bible.

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

DISCLAIMER: When the Vatican uses phrases such as “we Christians”, NTEB goes on record as saying that we are not part of whatever group it is they are referring to. The bible says that real Christians are to love the Jewish people and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. NTEB whole-heartedly supports the Jewish people and the literal, visible, physical, modern-day nation of Israel.

From YNET NEWS: In a special interview with Die Tagespost last week, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal, named by Pope Benedict to represent the Vatican in the Jewish State, declared that “Israel’s existence as such has nothing to do with the Bible.” He then compared Christians’ condition in today’s Jerusalem with Jesus’ Passion: “We Christians never forget that even our Lord himself suffered and was mocked in Jerusalem.”

“We Christians cannot speak about the Promised Land for the Jewish people”, the synod’s document said. “There is no longer a chosen people. The concept of the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians.”

Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal, named by Pope Benedict to represent the Vatican in the Jewish State, declared that “Israel’s existence as such has nothing to do with the Bible.”

Twal’s position on Israel and the Bible has been embraced at the highest levels in the Catholic Church. The Vatican synod in 2010 declared that Israel cannot use the Biblical concept of a promised land or a chosen people.

A few days ago, Patriarch Twal responded enthusiastically to the agreement reached between Hamas and Fatah. He also denounced “the Judaization of Jerusalem” and attacked Israel for “trying to transform it into an only Hebrew-Jewish city, excluding the other faiths.” Elsewhere, Iraq’s Archbishop, Louis Sako, asked to “separate between Judaism and Zionism.” Indeed, in the most influential quarters of Christianity, Jews are still regarded as an apostate group not entitled to a sovereign state of its own.

Jesus, the Palestinian prince of hope and peace?

Backed by the Catholic clergy, for the first time in history the Palestinians asked the United Nations’ cultural body to register Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity under the name of “Palestine.” According to Omar Awadallah, who heads the UN department in the PA Foreign Ministry,

“Jesus is the Palestinian prince of hope and peace and Christians all over the world want that church to be a World Heritage site.”

In a period when the Vatican’s anguish at the catastrophic decline of Arab Christianity should be palpable, the Catholic Church chooses to demonize Israel and to increase its collaboration with the PLO.

The confirmation comes from the intensity of high profile meetings in recent weeks and the participation of bishops not only from Arab countries, but from Europe and the United States as well.

Elimination of Jewish state has become a priority

Last January, eight Catholic bishops from Europe and North America, including UK Archbishop Patrick Kelly and French Archbishop Michel Dubost, visited Gaza. “I asked prisoners in the largest prison in Europe (in Evry) to pray for you,” Dubost told Gazans. The inference was clear: Palestinians are living in a big prison terrified by Israel. In the same period, Father Manuel Musalam, head of Gaza’s Catholics, met with Hamas leader, Mahmoud al Zahar, and declared that “Christians are not threatened by Muslims” but that everyone faces the same problem, that of Israel’s “humiliation.”

The Vatican’s criminalization of Zionism, which Arab Churches made a basic condition for Muslim-Christian rapprochement, grants the elimination of the Jewish State priority over defending the rights of their own beleaguered communities. After Arab nationalism failed to eliminate Israel, Arab Christianity and the Vatican are now building a Palestinian identity hostile to Israel and the Jews. source – YNET News

(Just so we’re in NO DOUBT to the nationality of Obama and his uneligability for the Highest Office)

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans.

 

“It’s clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race,” Ryan, 44, said in a statement. “What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign – the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play.”

 

Although Ryan disputed the allegations, saying he and his wife went to one ‘avant-garde’ club in Paris and left because they felt uncomfortable, lashed out at the media and said it was “truly outrageous” that the Chicago Tribune got a judge to unseal the records.

 

The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.

 

“I feel for him actually,” Obama told a Chicago TV station. “What he’s gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody.”

 

The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.

 

The chairwoman of the Illinois Republican Party, Judy Topinka, said at a news conference, after Ryan withdrew, that Republicans would probably take several weeks to settle on a new candidate.

 

“Obviously, this is a bad week for our party and our state,” she said.

 

As recently as Thursday, spokesmen for the Ryan campaign still insisted that Ryan would remain in the race. Ryan had defended himself saying, “There’s no breaking of any laws. There’s no breaking of any marriage laws. There’s no breaking of the Ten Commandments anywhere.”
