THIS IS THE YEAR OF THE JEWISH JUBILEE. starting September 14, 2015  (ELUL 30)

We have been told that every time there is a Jubilee (every 49 years) it means war for Israel.

Today I got a sudden urging to go back to reading Tom Horn's book Zenith 2016, and I opened the book to where I had suddenly stopped reading several weeks ago. See how the events back then seem to line up with what is going on today.

Beginning at Thessaly and spreading through the whole of Asia Minor, the cult of Asclepius - the Greek God of healing - became the chief competitor of Christianity.  Asclepius was even believed by many pagan converts to Christianity to be a living presence who possessed the power of healing. Major shrines were erected to Asclepius at Epidaurus and at Pergamum, and for a long time he enjoyed a strong cult following in Rome.  He was credited with healing a variety of incurable diseases. including raising a man from the dead.

PERGAMUM was duplicated by both Adolf Hitler and President Obama in their inogurations. Besides that, President Obama screwed up his inoguration and had to do it twice, the second time in private, and did not use the Bible to swear his oath on.

A Christian might resist the lustful wants of the carnal man, but in recent years, millions of people are practicing both apostasy against the Laws of God, and growing immorality of many kinds, right in full view of the public.  In recent days, The United States Supreme court has passed a ruling that men can marry men, women can marry women, and afterward the whitehouse in Washington D.C. was lit up with rainbow lighting and even Vice President Biden dressed up in a rainbow cape with a laughing President Obama right next to him.

Isn't this a little far to go for a Presidential office to show off?  Were we supposed to be proud of our government for this display?  For two supposed Christian political officials to do this in public is appalling, no matter what they think or do privately, which would be none of our business.

This whole government program is apostasy to begin with. 

Leviticus 18:22 (ESV)

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 (ESV)

13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (ESV)

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[b] 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Romans 1:26-28 ESV /

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.


Tom Horn also tells us that in the time of Ezekiel they had nasty drunken rituals of Bacchanalia where they participated in acts of bestiality, orgiastic cruelty, including lesbianism. pedophilia and sexual behavior between men were worse than between women.  These days you can see those things on TV or the internet anytime you want to.                                               

He states on page 185, "Today, omophagia is practiced by certain voodoo sects as well as cult Satanists. possibly illustrating an ongoing effort on the part of Satan to distort the original revelation of God, as eating human flesh and drinking human blood to "become one" with the devoured is a demonization of the Eucharist or Holy Communion.

He desribes the people as wearing bands on theor heads and arms such as this:  Therefore, this is what the Lord GOD says: I am against your magic bands that you ensnare people with like birds, and I will tear them from your arms. I will free the people you have ensnared like birds  Ezekiel 13:20

The Book of Ezekiel is all about this:

Gog and Magog (/ɡɒɡ/; /ˈmɡɒɡ/; Hebrew: גּוֹג וּמָגוֹג Gog u-Magog; Arabic: يَأْجُوج وَمَأْجُوج Yaʾjūj wa-Maʾjūj) are names that appear in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), the Book of Revelation and the Qur'an, sometimes indicating individuals and sometimes lands and peoples. Sometimes, but not always, they are connected with the "end times", and the passages from the book of Ezekiel and Revelation in particular have attracted attention for this reason.

In some interpretations from ancient times to the late Middle Ages, Gog and Magog were identified with Eurasian nomads such as the Khazars, Huns and Mongols; in Islam, they were sometimes identified first with Turkic tribes of Central Asia and later with the Mongols, although others interpretations exist. Throughout this period they were conflated with various other legends, notably those concerning Alexander the Great, the Amazons, Red Jews, and the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and became the subject of much fanciful literature. In modern times they remain associated with apocalyptic thinking, especially in the United States and the Muslim world.

How close are we to experiencing that?

Here is a little something to chew on.
In this dream, I am visited by my aunt Doris who is deceased many years. I don't think I've ever dreamed about her before.
1-14-07 - DREAM -  I was in the living room of a house. We were each sitting at a desk and working on taxes.  A lawyer came in to help Joe with the taxes.  He was wearing a yellow shirt and light tan suit. It came to me that he hadn't changed clothes in 4 days, so I tried to nail my little blue calculator to the desk so he wouldn't steal it.
Just then, my aunt Doris came in.  I was really excited to see her. I wanted to tell her about my Mom and how well she is doing. (She is also deceased- a year now)
She said, "Let's go into the kitchen so we can talk."  I was so anxious to tell her about my Mom, I jumped up and followed her to the kitchen.
The kitchen was a mess. I obviously hadn't cleaned recently, and I grabbed a rag from the counter and got it wet and started to wipe off the kitchen table.
Aunt Doris sat down at the clean end of the table, while I was still wiping up food crumbs and said, "Next week is the start of Gog - Ma Gog.  My church doesn't know exactly which day, but they wanted you to know because they think you are the best psychic they have ever seen."
I didn't know what to say. I didn't even know she went to church or which church if she did attend church.
She continued speaking, and said something about a Mr. Steuben being involved.She may have given me his first name also but if she did, I didn't catch it.
I noticed then, there was a row of about 12 black stick-pens laying side by side on the table. I didn't move them but wiped the table around them.
I started to tell her the dream I had right before she came to the house, but it came to me that the dream was not understandable to me, and it wouldn't interest her, so I let myself wake up in mid-sentence.
End of dream


The name Doris is probably used for a reason as is Mr. Steuben.
Greek   a dorian woman, of the sea  , A Sharp Knife; Region of Ancient Greece ,

DORIAN masculine form of DORIS or short form of ISIDORE or possibly form of DARIUS. The name was first used by writer Oscar Wilde.

DORIS "of Doris" (Greek). Doris was a region of ancient Greece where the Dorian tribe settled. Doris was also the name of a minor Greek goddess of the sea

Doris was a sea goddess in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys (who were also sea gods/goddesses). Doris had many, many sisters. She was the wife of the sea god Nereus, her half-brother. She had fifty daughters, called the Nereids. Doris was not one of the goddesses who lived on Mt. Olympus.


I noticed that a von Steuben signed the Declaration of Independence and that fits the dream scenario as well.

This info on Gog Magog is from Godlike Productions posting board:
Re: Israel is Gog  

You see you right, almost about the location. But you don't realize one thing about it. The Khazars who converted to Judism and became the Ashkenazi Jews who make up 95 percent of the Jews today. They sat in the lands of Gog and Magog and latter after holding out against the Monguls where finally pushed north by the Muslims into the lands of Poland, Germany and Russia later to flee to the United States and what is now Israel. 5 million in Israel and 6 million in the United States. This is how these Jews are Gog and Magog.

This is from Jewish sources.

Jewish sources
A letter in Hebrew dated AM 4746 (985–986) refers to "our lord David, the Khazar prince" who lived in Taman. The letter said that this David was visited by envoys from Kievan Rus to ask about religious matters — this could be connected to the Vladimir conversion which took place during the same time period. Taman was a principality of Kievan Rus around 988, so this successor state (if that is what it was) may have been conquered altogether. The authenticity of this letter, the Mandgelis Document, has however been questioned by such scholars as D. M. Dunlop.

Abraham ibn Daud, a twelfth-century Spanish rabbi, reported meeting Khazar rabbinical students in Toledo, and that they informed him that the "remnant of them is of the rabbinic faith." This reference indicates that some Khazars maintained ethnic, if not political, autonomy at least two centuries after the sack of Atil.

Petachiah of Ratisbon, a thirteenth-century rabbi and traveler, reported traveling through "Khazaria", though he gave few details of its inhabitants except to say that they lived amidst desolation in perpetual mourning.

He further related:

Whilst at Baghdad saw ambassadors from the kings of Meshech, for Magog (medieval Christian writers said that the Khazars lived in the land of Gog and Magog) is about ten days' journey from thence. The land extends as far as the Mountains of Darkness (a term often used to describe the Caucasus). Beyond the Mountains of Darkness are the sons of Jonadab, son of Rechab (an official in the court of King Josiah of Judah). To the seven kings of Meshech an angel appeared in a dream, bidding them to give up the laws and statutes, and to embrace the laws of Moses, son of Amram. If not, he threatened to lay waste their country. However, they delayed until the angel commenced to lay waste their country, when the kings of Meshech and all the inhabitants of their countries became proselytes, and they sent to the head of the academy (i.e., the Gaon of Sura or Pumbedita) a request to send them some disciples of the wise. Every disciple that is poor goes there to teach them the law and Babylonian Talmud. From the land of Egypt the disciples go there to study. He saw the ambassadors visit the grave of [the prophet] Ezekiel…"

The account of the conversion of the "seven kings of Meshech" is extremely similar to the accounts of the Khazar conversion given in the Kuzari, and in King Joseph's Reply. It is possible that Meshech refers to the Khazars, or to some Judaized polity influenced by them. Arguments against this possibility include the reference to "seven kings" (though this, in turn, could refer to seven successor tribes or state micropolities).
The battle of Gog and Ma Gog: -  Gog is Israel, and Ma Gog is a gentile  nation to the north.
  Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea.
Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever

E-mail from a reader:

Off the top of my head-
12 pens = 12 tribes of Israel
I also found this:
"Revelations tells of the end of the world, when Gog and Magog are let loose.  Saint Augustine describes it in his book  City of God as: "And when the thousand years are finished, Satan shall be loosed from his prison, and shall go out to seduce the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, and shall draw them to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea." This, then, is his purpose in seducing them, to draw them to this battle. For even before this he was wont to use as many and various seductions as he could continue. And the words "he shall go out" mean, he shall burst forth from lurking hatred into open persecution. For this persecution, occurring while the final judgment is imminent, shall be the last which shall be endured by the holy Church throughout the world, the whole city of Christ being assailed by the whole city of the devil, as each exists on earth. For these nations which he names Gog and Magog are not to be understood of some barbarous nations in some part of the world, whether the Getae and Massagetae, as some conclude from the initial letters, or some other foreign nations not under the Roman government. For John marks that they are spread over the whole earth, when he says, "The nations which are in the four corners of the earth," and he added that these are Gog and Magog. The meaning of these names we find to be, Gog, (a roof), Magog, (from a roof )- a house, as it were, and he who comes out of the house. They are therefore the nations in which we found that the devil was shut up as in an abyss, and the devil himself coming out from them and going forth, so that they are the roof, he from the roof. "
and I also found this.....

An ancient region of central Greece. It was the traditional homeland of the Dorians.
and I was thinking- what if Steuben is a misnomer for some
Middle East dictator- maybe it's "ben" something-

Love & Light


The Jewish calendar has 12 months of 30 days each.  As represented by the camp positions of the 12 tribes in Numbers 2, it is a reflection of the Zodiac. The basic idea is to make things on earth like those in Heaven. The New Jerusalem is based on the same pattern as expressed in Revelation 21.

The New Jerusalem

Rev 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Rev 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

Rev 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Rev 21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

Rev 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

Rev 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

Rev 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

Rev 21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

Rev 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

Rev 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Rev 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

Rev 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

Lost Tribes Of Israel Study Maps
4 Volume Set (paper), 35,000 Word Text
by Daniel R. Walsh
Volume I: The Pre-Exodus Flights

This volume examines the Zarahite reign in Egypt; they were known as Hyksos, which means the Shepherd Kings. It covers the flights of this Zarah Branch of Judah and the sailing Tribe of Dan to Greece, Troy, Spain, Britain, Ireland, etc. Particular attention is paid to the Hebrew voyages of Danaus, Cadmus, Chalcol, Darda, Brutus and Corineus, and the Danaans. Source material includes the ancient histories and legends of Egypt, Greece, Ireland, and Britain. The reader will learn that the greatest Grecian stories, such as Jason and the Argonauts and the famous Trojan War, actually involved descendants of these first groups of Israelites that left Egypt prior to the Exodus. This volume also contains a basic history of Jacob's Pillar, which is the Stone of Destiny used in British coronations.

Volume II: Deportations By Assyria

This volume introduces the reader to the House of Judah and the House of Israel. It examines the House of Israel's deportations to the Assyrian buffer zones. It covers their war with Urartu, their break away from the buffers, their conquests in Phrygia and Lydia, their arrival at Arsareth, Moesia, and Scythia, and their migrations to Scandinavia and Western Europe. Special attention is given to their changing names as discovered in the archives of Assyria, on the monuments of Persia, and in the writings of the ancient Greeks. Their names include Beth Khumri, Ghomri, Gimira, Cimmerians, Celts, Isaac, Isaaca, Iskuza, Sacae, Skuthae, Scythians, Germani, and Saxons.

Volume III: Jeremiah's Journey

Volume III examines the history of the House of Judah with King David's perpetual throne. It traces Jeremiah's journey to plant the Hebrew Princess Tea Tephi in Ireland, as found in Irish tales. It also takes a detailed look at the Hebrew Milesians that were in Egypt during the reigns of Pharoahs Psamtik I and Hophra. The reader will follow Gallam the Milesian from Scythia to Egypt, where he acquired the Hebrew Princess Scota; Gallam and Scota's voyage from Egypt to Spain; and the Milesian invasion of Ireland from Spain. The evidence will show that King David's dynasty survives today in Britain, with Jacob's Pillar.

Volume IV: The Christian Connection

This Volume examines Christ's connection to the divorced House of Israel. Using the histories and legends recorded in Southern France and Britain, the miracle voyage of Joseph of Arimathea, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, etc. is traced from Caesarea in Palestine to the Lost Tribes living in Gaul. Joseph's journey to Glastonbury in England is shown on the map. The reader will also learn data on the Hebrew kings Bran, Caractacus, and Arviragus in the days when these famous Silures fought the Romans for control of Britain. The Apostle Paul's connection to the Silurian royal house of Caractacus, Claudia, and Linus is examined, along with Paul's mission and letters (Biblical Epistles) to the Lost Tribes. Paul's trip to Spain, Britain, Belgae, Helvetia, and Mount Julius is traced using clues found in the Sonnini Manuscript, which is a document known as the Lost Chapter of Acts.

FROM; http://www.angelfire.com/biz/celtica/losttribes.html

The 12 tribes of Israel were seeded into the DNA of the genome of all human creations. Is-Ra-El is not Hebrew. It is the knowing bestowed to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as: Is = The I Am Presence, Ra = the Greater Light, and El = the conversion of Light into matter.

Numbers 24:2 - And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him.  

24:3 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

24:4 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:

 24:5 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, [and] thy tabernacles, O Israel!

24:14 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come [therefore, and] I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.

24:15 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

24:16 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, [which] saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:

24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

24:18 - And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.  

24:19 - Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city. 

Specific names given in the Bible had cryptic meanings and the fact that she was known as the Tender Twig in the Bible, and as Tea Tephi in the Annals of the Irish Masters, signifies TT - connected with the Twin pillars of Moses - the Ark of the Covenant and Freemasonry. She was the young 'twig' of the vine of the House of David.  [note: Moses was Ahkenaten; See: http://www.greatdreams.com/moses.htm  ]

In the Bible the sister is not named, only mentioned as a princess; also in the Annals of the Irish Masters, she is not named.  However, Scota, as mentioned earlier above, was the mother-in-law of Princess Tea Tephi Mor.
Scota's son, Heremon/Eochaid/Heber, was of the tribe of Dan - the Tuatha de Danaan.  There are many gods and goddesses of this tribe, bound up in Irish mythology, including the children of Don/Dan who were regarded as deities in the sky.  Another of the gods of Dan, was Odin who is also Thor in Scandanavian mythology. 'Dan' in Danmark (Denmark) and Scandan... prescribe to where the tribe of Dan left their mark as they traveled towards the British Isles.

Gog and Magog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Magog in Genesis

The first occurrence of "Magog" in the Bible is in the "Table of Nations" in Genesis 10, where Magog is the eponymous ancestor of a people or nation (without any accompanying apocalyptic symbolism, or mention of Gog, although "Magog" may mean "the land of Gog"):

2. The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras

3. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. (Genesis 10:2-3)

Gog and Magog in the Book of Revelation

Gog and Magog are mentioned again in Revelation 20:7-8:

7. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

8. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (KJV)

Here, Gog and Magog are identified as the nations in the four corners of the earth, and their attack is represented as an eschatological crisis after the Millennium, to be vanquished by divine intervention. The language of Gog and Magog's destruction is very similar to that of their mention in Ezekiel.

In terms of extra-biblical Jewish tradition, Gog the 'prince' has been explained being one of the 70 national angels — of whom all except one, Michael (the guardian angel of Israel), are fallen angels. According to this interpretation, Gog is the angel of a nation called Magog (literally meaning "of Gog" or "from Gog"). Gog in this view represents an apocalyptic coalition of nations arrayed against Israel.

Josephus identifies Magog with the Scythians, but this name seems to have been used generically in antiquity for a number of peoples north of the Black Sea.

According to one modern theory of dispensationalist Biblical hermeneutics, Gog and Magog are supposed to represent Russia. The Scofield Reference Bible's notes to Ezekiel claim that "Meshech" is a Hebrew form of Moscow, and that "Tubal" represents the Siberian capital Tobolsk. During the Cold War this identification led Hal Lindsey to claim that the Soviet Union would play a major role in the End Times.

Some legends of Hungarians and certain Celtic peoples say they are descendants of Magog. Poseidonius, for example, mentions that the Cimmerians, considered to be the original ancestors in Celtic traditions, were derived from gug and guas.

This stopped Gog and Magog from threatening them. Contemporary scholars believe that this wall might be in the Caucasus Mountains at Dariel Pass.[4]

Gog and Magog are also mentioned in the sayings of the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, as the sign of the nearness of the Doomsday, and that they will destroy the civilizations (The Books of Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Al Muslim). These reflect the Qur'anic prophecies:

“ But when Gog and Magog are let loose and they rush headlong down every height (or advantage). Then will the True Promise shall draw near - (Qur'an 21:96-97)

Gog and Magog as Ashkenazi Jews
Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir, in his historical work, Al-Bidayah wa'l-Nihayah (The Beginning and the End) located the tribes of Gog and Magog between the Black Sea and the Caspian, stating that they refer to the Khazars.

According to the Lord Mayor, the giants Gog and Magog are traditional guardians of the City of London, and images of them have been carried in the Lord Mayor's Show since the days of King Henry V.

Gog Magog Hills
The Gog Magog Hills are about three miles south of Cambridge, said to be the metamorphosis of the giant after being rejected by the nymph Granta (i.e. the River Cam).

Gog and Magog in Ireland
Works of Irish mythology, including the Lebor Gabála Érenn (the Book of Invasions), expand on the Genesis account of Magog as the son of Japheth and make him the ancestor to the Irish. His three sons were Baath, Jobhath, and Fathochta. Magog is regarded as the father of the Irish race, and the progenitor of the Scythians, as well as of numerous other races across Europe and Central Asia.

Partholon, leader of the first group to colonize Ireland after the Deluge, was a descendant of Magog. The Milesians, or people of the 5th invasion of Ireland, were also descendants of Magog.

The Coming War of Gog and Magog, an Islamic Invasion?

by Jennifer Rast


Contender Ministries   

Ezekiel 38 through 39 tells of a future invasion of Israel by a vast coalition of nations that surround it.  As we read the headlines in the newspapers of today, and witness the conflict in the Middle East, it's not hard to imagine that this invasion prophesied over 2600 years ago, could be fulfilled in our lifetime.  Ezekiel 36-37 predicts a gathering of the Jews to the nation of Israel, which will be followed by this massive invasion.  For 19 centuries the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world, and until May 14, 1948 there was no nation of Israel to invade.  With the nation of Israel now a reality, the stage seems set for the war that will usher in the tribulation and the rise of the Antichrist; a war that will end with the destruction of Israel's enemies by God Himself, and lead to the signing of a peace treaty with the Antichrist.

As you read Ezekiel 38 and 39, it isn't just the creation of the nation of Israel that makes this prophecy seem likely to be fulfilled in the near future.  The nations that God tells us will form this coalition against Israel seem more likely now than perhaps ever before to form just such an alliance.  To understand the prophecies of Ezekiel about this future invasion, it's important to understand who the players will be.  

There are many theories as to who will join in this future invasion of Israel.  Before going through a list of the individual nations, I'll list some of the more common theories you'll hear when studying the prophecies from Ezekiel 38. 

Ezekiel 38:1-6  The word of the Lord came to me; Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says:  I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.  I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army - your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.  Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops - the many nations with you.'

1.  Hashemite Kingdom Theory:  The Islamic Nations will come against Israel either by an Iraqi-led, Jordanian led, or Turkish led coalition.  The enemy from the north refers to the areas of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq.  These Islamic nations make up the lands occupied by Magog, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech and Tubal.

2.  Caucus Theory:  Gog and Magog are the Arab nations in an alliance with the Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union.  This theory leaves out most of Russia, and includes only the southern part.

3.  All Europe theory:  Gog and Magog are the sons of Japeth thus the originators of the European races.  Gog and Magog therefore indicates all of Europe.  This is not a widely held theory and I could find little support for it.

4.  Russian Theory:  The Hebrew word 'rosh' in verse 3 is identified with Russia, 'Tubal' with Tiblisi or Tobolsk and 'Meshech' with Moscow, therefore Gog and Magog refers to Russia.  This is one of the most commonly held views and is based on a different interpretation of the Hebrew word Rosh (used as a noun rather than adjective), similarities in the pronunciation of words, and the Greek translation of Rosh referring to a tribe of people found in what is now Russia.

5.  Indo-European Theory:  Gog and Magog include the nations descending from Japheth: Russia, the Caucasus(Turkey), Iraq, and the Islamic republics of Central Asia.  The coalition is an alliance of Arab nations, Muslim republics, Georgia, southern Russia and the Black sea area.

These are some of the theories you will find if you do any research into the prophecies of Ezekiel 38.  You may also find interpretations that are a combination of these, and in fact, I tend to find more evidence for a version of the Indo-European and Caucacus Theory. 

Before looking at the participants of this invasion in more detail, it's important to understand that the war described in Ezekiel 38 is not the same as the war that will come at the end of the tribulation when Jesus returns to defeat the Antichrist and establish his millennial kingdom.  How do we know this?  The war at the end of the tribulation, known as Armageddon, is a world war.  Revelation tells us that this battle will involve all nations.  The war described in Ezekiel includes specific nations that invade Israel.  Also, Armageddon is at the climax of the tribulation, while the war described in Ezekiel comes well before then.

Ezekiel 38:1-7 gives 10 names as participants in the invasion of Israel that will follow the regathering of the Jews to their homeland.  First mentioned, is the land of Magog.  The most common identity for Magog is in Central Asia.  The Jewish historian Josephus said, "Magog founded the Magogians, called Scythians by the Greeks.  Scythians were a nomadic tribe who inhabited the ancient territory from Central Asia across the southern part of ancient Russia."  Today this area is inhabited by the former Soviet Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and possibly northern parts of Afghanistan.  All of these nations that make up the land of Magog have one thing in common - Islam.  Militant Islam has been on the rise in these countries since the fall of the Soviet Union, when Islam no longer had to be practiced secretly.  Radical Islamic groups such as the Islamic Renaissance Party, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, and Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islam are working to reunite central Asian nations and ultimately the entire Muslim world.  It is from this part of the world that a leader will arise to bring together a great coalition of nations to invade Israel.

Probably the most debated verse is Ezekiel 38:3.  There are two main views on the identity of the Nations God is referring to in this verse.  I'll list both here, and let the reader decide which sounds most reasonable.

Rosh as Russia

Some versions of the Bible translate the Hebrew word 'rosh' in verse 3 as a noun referring to a place in Russia.  The least credible support for this view is that Rosh sounds like the modern-day name Russia and Meshech sounds like Moscow.  In this translation they treat rosh as a proper name.  The Greek translation translates Rosh as the proper name Ros.  Because the ancient Sarmations were known as the Ras, Rashu, and Rus and inhabited Rasapu which is now Southern Russia, some feel this verse points to Russia as the prince of Rosh.  Another support sited for this view is that verse 6 and 15 say the invasion will come from remote parts of the north, and Russia is more remote.

Rosh as chief

Other versions of the Bible translate 'rosh' as an adjective.  The argument here is that in the Massoretic text the words 'chief prince' carry the accents Tiphha and Zaqeph-gadol.  The Tiphha appears under the resh of the Hebrew word 'rosh'; the Zaqeph-gadol appears on top of the sin of the Hebrew word 'nish'.  The Tiphha to the right, underneath the initial consonant of the world 'rosh', or chief, is prepositive and does not mark the tone syllable.  The world 'nish' or prince has the accent Zaqeph-gadol which is disjunctive and indicates a pause.  So, verse three would read:

"Behold, I am against thee, o Gog, the prince, {pause} chief of Meshech and Tubal"

Rather than:

"Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal."

Here 'rosh' is translated head or chief as it is 423 other times in the Old Testament.

In short, if you believe 'rosh' should be translated as a proper noun you may find the interpretation that Russia will be a part of this coalition more reasonable.  If you believe 'rosh' should be an adjective here, you need only concern yourself with who Meshech and Tubal are.  I tend to have a problem with the "it sounds like Russia" theory, and find the translation of rosh as an adjective more believable, but to each his own.

Meshech and Tubal in verses 2 and 6, were the names of the 6th and 5th sons of Japheth, the son of Noah (Gen. 10:2).  Ezekiel 27:13 also mentions Meshech and Tubal as trading partners with Tyre (Modern Lebanon).  It's likely that Meshech and Tubal refer to the ancient Moshi/Mushki and Tubalu/Tibareni who dwelled in the area around, primarily south of, the Black and Caspian Sea in Ezekiel's day.  Today these nations would be in the modern country of Turkey, parts of Southern Russia and Northern Iran.  All areas with a Muslim majority.

Verse 6 adds Gomer and Beth-Togarmah to the coalition.  "Gomer" was the first son of Japheth.  The Gomerites were the ancient Cimmerians, expelled in 700 B.C. from the southern steppes of Russia into what is today Turkey.  "Togarmah" is the 3rd son of Gomer and beth at the beginning of the name is the Hebrew word for 'house' or 'place of'.  In Ezekiel's time there was a city in Cappodocia (Modern Turkey) known as Tegarma, Tagarma, Til-garimmu, and Takarama. 

The possibility that four of the names mentioned in Ezekiel are now in Turkey makes a pretty strong argument for Turkey being a part of the invasion of Israel.  Current circumstances in that country also lend this view some credibility.  Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, Turkey has been gaining inroads into Central Asia (Magog).  It is also linked to Central Asia both ethnically and linguistically, and has a growing number of political parties that support opposition to Israel, establishment of a Turkish Islamic Republic, and the worldwide rule of Islam.

Verse 5 brings three more names into the mix.  God tells us that "Persia, Cush and Put will be with them". 

Persia is a pretty easy one.  In 539 B.C. the Persians conquered the city of Babylon.  You only need look at a map of the ancient Persian Empire to see that it was centered in the nation known today as Iran.  In fact Iran was called Persia until 1935 when it was changed to Iran and then to the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 during the Iranian Revolution.  It's no secret that Iran is an archenemy of Israel and the West, and a supporter of the Palestinians.  They are actively working to get other Arab countries to change camps in their cooperation with the U.S. and Israel.

The ancient kingdom of Cush in Ezekiels time was the land just south of Egypt on the Nile River.  Today this land is occupied by Sudan.  Sudan is home to the National Islamic Front, is ruled by an Islamic military dictatorship, a strong supporter of Iraq, home to Osama bin Landen from 1991-1996, and harbors countless Islamic terrorist groups.  Sudan would easily fit into the coalition as it is already close allies with Iran, trading military supplies for docking rights on the Red Sea shipping routes.

Ancient Put was the land just west of Egypt, or what is today Libya.  Libya is another sponsor of terrorism, and openly refuses to recognize Israel's right to even exist.  When the coalition against Israel is formed, Libya won't have to be asked twice to join.

Verse 6 adds "and many people with you."  The nations listed specifically are all somewhat distant from Israel.  By adding "and many people with you", God may have been indicating that those nations and peoples in closer proximity to Israel will join the Jihad.  Other nations that might join the alliance are Iraq, Syria, Jordon, and Egypt.  All of them are Islamic nations, and all of them would not hesitate to support the destruction of Israel were the opportunity to join such a vast coalition presented to them.

Below is a list of the nations that are listed in Ezekiel as Israel's last-days enemies:





Russia or Chief

Ancient Sarmatians known as Rashu, Rasapu, Ros, and Rus.


Translated as the adjective Chief.


Central Asia

Ancient Scythians - Islamic southern republics of the former Soviet Union with a population of 60 million Muslims.  This territory could include modern Afghanistan.



Ancient Muschki and Musku in Cilicia and Cappadocia.


Turkey (also southern Russia and Iran)

Ancient Tubalu in Cappadocia.



Name changed from Persia to Iran in 1935.

Ethiopia (Cush)


Ancient Cush, south of Egypt.



Ancient Put, west of Egypt.



Ancient Cimmerians - from the seventh century to first century B.C. in central/western Anatolia.



Til-garimmu - between ancient Carchemish and Haran (southern Turkey).

Many peoples with you

Other Islamic nations

Possibly Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt

The reasons God gives us for the enemies' invasion of Israel are further proof that the attack will be an Islamic invasion.

The first reason God gives for the invasion in Ezekiel 38 is a desire by the coalition to cover the Jewish land and wipe them off the face of the earth.  Urged on by a hatred of the Jewish people they will seek to destroy them and the nation of Israel.  This is the stated goal today of almost every Islamic nation in the Middle East.  The only nations not currently in a declared state of war with Israel are Egypt, Turkey, and Jordan, yet they would certainly be glad to see Israel eliminated if presented with a willing leader and an opportunity to rid the Middle East of Islam's archenemy.

God tells us that they also come to "seize plunder…and to capture great spoil".  Many verses in the Quran advocated plundering for the benefit of Islam and there are several instances of this war tactic throughout the history of Muhammad's life.  In fact, it is a common theme in his teachings.

This invasion of Israel and attack on the Jewish people will indeed be a Jihad, but it will also be the final Jihad.

Ezekiel 38:13  "Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish with all its villages will say to you, 'Have you come to capture spoil?  Have you assembled your company to seize plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to capture great spoil?'"

As this invasion develops, a few countries will make a lame protest.  This isn't hard to believe when you look at the indifference most nations display as Israel is repeatedly attacked by terrorists.

The specific nations who question Gog's actions are "Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish".  Sheba and Dedan are not hard to identify.  These were ancient names for what is known today as Saudi Arabia.

Tarshish is most commonly agreed to be ancient Tartessus or the area of present day Spain in Western Europe.  In Ezekiels day, Tarshish was in the farthest west regions of the known world.  By referring to Tarshish and all her merchants, Ezekiel could have been indicating that Western Europe will join with Saudi Arabia in denouncing the invasion.  Interestingly, Saudi Arabia is the only Arab nation to consistently side with the West against radical Islamic elements around the world.  The royals of Saudi Arabia mostly side with the West out of an interest in self preservation, and at times oppose us behind the scenes, but they would most probably put on a show of opposition to radical Islam in order to maintain the support of western governments.

A similar alliance has been seen once before during the Gulf War of the early 1990's.  The U.S., Western Europe, and Saudi Arabia were allied against Iraq, while Russia, Iran, Sudan, Libya, and most other Middle East nations either aligned with Iraq, or against the U.S. either by directly opposing it, or by remaining neutral. 

The good news is that God wins.  God will come against the invaders Himself and destroy them.  Verses 19-20 say that there will be an earthquake so great that people all over the world will tremble.  In the ensuing chaos, nations will begin to turn on each other.  The confusion will lead to the largest case of death by friendly fire ever seen.

Verse 22 of Ezekiel tells us that there will be plagues, torrents of rain, hailstones, and burning sulfur.  Just as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, he will destroy these invading forces.  Once again, God will make it known to all the nations that He is the Lord.  He will give the nations proof that He is the Holy One in Israel.

This war against Israel will pave the way for the Antichrist's military rule over the world and his demand that the world worship him as God.  With Islam defeated and the Christian Church raptured, opposition to worshipping a man as God will be greatly reduced.  Those who are left would have no army with which to mount much of a protest.

So, how should Christians respond to this prophecy?  In Ezekiel 39:6,7, and 28 God says that this end-times battle will happen that "they will know that I am the Lord".  This message that God's purpose is to cause Israel and the other nations to know He is Lord is repeated over 60 times in Ezekiel.  By learning about prophecy and teaching it to others, people will be able to see the glory, majesty, and sovereignty of God in the fulfillment of His divine word.  By knowing our Bible and teaching it to others, they will be able to see that there is a divine creator, and a plan for them.  Through Jesus Christ and the salvation he offers us freely, there is victory and an eternity more glorious than they can imagine.

Chamish - War Of Gog And Magog Coming
By Barry Chamish
A terrifying scenario of an upcoming Middle East war is being discussed in Israeli political circles. As the American terror death toll may surpass that of Hiroshima, the consensus among public opinion and top ranks of the military, untouched by the ruling illuminati caste, will be to strike back at Islam where it hurts the most.


Three days ago, someone (that will do until he chooses to accept credit) left over a thousand sensitive documents concerning the Rabin murder at my home.

I called the economics writer Yaacov Verker and asked him to drive by and look at the material. He would have arrived the next day but it was too tragic for both of us. The day after the bombings in New York and Washington, he speed-read the material and discovered the smoking gun.

It is the results of tests on Yigal Amir's hands, a half hour after he supposedly shot Yitzhak Rabin. Inspector Arieh Moshe, of the Israel Police Crime Laboratory, conducted a Feroprint test of Amir's hands to measure the amount of gunpowder on them and compare the composition of the gunpowder with that of the bullet casings. He found that, "The results of the testing were insignificant." NO GUNPOWDER WAS ON AMIR'S HANDS. This is an impossibility if he shot Rabin with real bullets. After almost six years, we had the proof that Amir did not murder Rabin.

Yaacov phoned Knesset Member, Michael Kleiner and told him the stunning news. Mr. Kleiner is head of the Herut Movement, for most of Israel's history, the country's most powerful opposition party. Today, it has been neutralized by forces led by Ariel Sharon. The next day, Mr. Kleiner's secretary called and requested that I meet MK Kleiner at a gathering of Herut Party members in Tel Aviv.

I just returned from the meeting with Mr. Kleiner and numerous party leaders. A few told me that those behind the slaughter in America were the same people who brought us the Oslo "peace" process and the Rabin murder. They described the next stage of the Hell to be brought upon this planet.

The Scenario

1. America will demand proper retaliation for the grotesque loss of its citizens, for the wrecking of its economy and for the destruction of its most potent monolithic symbols. Only the bombing of Islam's most potent symbol, the Kaabah in Mecca, will satisfy the calls for equivalent justice.

2. Saudi Arabia will be taken over, its oilfields will repay America's losses, and rebuild the twin towers, as well as the wrecked economy. (Which may have been the real motive of the destruction of the buildings. Somebody was behind the theft of trillions of dollars from the American economy in the last few years. No one will ever know who after this week).

3. The American public will not allow the oil companies to exploit them and the Saudi profits will go directly to rebuilding lower Manhattan and then straight into the people's pockets.

4. Naturally, most Moslems will object to the American takeover and that will slowly lead to the destruction of Islam. But not before the world is engulfed in violence comparable to that of World War II.


After the grief and shock subside a tiny bit, in November, I want to come to New York. I want to speak to those victims, Jewish and gentile, of the tragedy and tell them a side of their misery no one else will; why Israelis and Americans are dying to ignite a war to change the ruling status quo of the planet. And why the Rabin murder may hold the key to exposing and defeating these evil forces.

If any organization or group, no matter how small, will be willing to sponsor me, I'll come. If there is no budget, I'll cover the expenses. If you think I should be heard where the bombs struck, please contact me.

Date: 18/11/2005
A latter-day Gogand Magog
By Aryeh Dayan

A strange meeting was held two weeks ago in the office of Israel Prison Service ?(IPS?) Commissioner Yaakov Ganot. His two guests − the director of the Israel Antiquities Authority ?(IAA?), Shuka Dorfman, and the authority's archaeologist in the northern district, Dror Barshad − had already paid him several visits during the past year. But the latest meeting was different than the earlier ones, particularly because the pleasant, calm atmosphere that characterized them was replaced this time by a feeling of tension.

Nine months ago, when the Israel Defense Forces transferred authority for the prison located at the Megiddo junction to the IPS, the latter decided to build permanent structures to replace the tents in which the army had housed the prisoners. The prison authorities called in the IAA, as required by law, to carry out archaeological excavations to confirm that construction on the prison grounds was permissible from an archaeological perspective. In all their previous meetings, the senior officials from the IAA reported to the commissioner on the archaeological artifacts they had discovered, and then announced the "release" of an additional section of the site for construction. But their tidings were different this time.

They told Ganot that they had uncovered a mosaic floor in the southwest corner of the prison compound. Their initial assessment: The floor was from a Christian church that dated back to the middle of the third century or beginning of the forth century C.E. This is a discovery of enormous importance, they explained, because it is the first time the remains of such an ancient Christian church have been found in Israel.

This has great historic-scientific significance, they explained, as well as importance with respect to tourism. Tens of thousands of Christian tourists and pilgrims will be interested in coming to see the mosaic. This discovery, they announced, obligates the IAA to continue digging in the area in an attempt to uncover additional important findings, and prevents the authority from approving any construction there.

Ganot congratulated his guests on the scientific achievement, but as their conversation continued, signs of confrontation became apparent − a confrontation that will likely intensify during the coming months. While IAA officials spoke about the tremendous scientific importance of the mosaic floor, the commissioner spoke about the IPS's shortage of space and reminded them that only four of 10 planned cell blocks had been built and that the construction of the others is being delayed, mainly due to the excavations. When Dorfman and Barshad said that the discovery will garner international publicity for Israel, Ganot reminded them that the IPS has already invested tens of millions of shekels in building the Megiddo prison, which plays a central role in the service's expansion plan. At the end of the meeting, it was nonetheless decided that for now, the IPS would continue to cooperate with the IAA, but it was also clear that the two sides are conflicted over the future of the site where the floor was discovered.

"The Megiddo junction is not an appropriate place to locate a prison," the deputy director of the IPS, Dr. Uzi Dahari, told Haaretz. "To the west of the intersection is Tel Megiddo, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO this year, and to the east we have now uncovered the new site. This is a place where tourism should be developed. The prison needs to be moved from there."

"The prison could be moved to another place and its wall could be moved so that the mosaic would remain outside the jail. But the mosaic could also be moved to another place," the prison commander, Sharon Shoan, says in response. "These three options exist, and it all comes down to a question of money. It must not be forgotten that the security establishment is desperate for more prison cells."

The IPS commissioner himself has refrained from personally commenting on this issue at this stage. According to his office: "We'll carry out any decision the state makes" and "if the Finance Ministry provides the money to move the prison, then we'll move the prison."

If other archaeologists do not contradict the initial assessment by the IAA, the floor uncovered at Megiddo by one of the authority's archaeologists, Yotam Tefer, will be categorized as one of the most important findings discovered in Israel in recent decades. Its importance derives not only from the fact that it is part of the oldest church ever discovered here, but also because it dates back to the period in which Christian rituals still were conducted in secret.

"The images and writing on the floor, and the pottery and ceramics found adjacent to it, lead us to the conclusion that we uncovered a floor of a public structure that served ritual purposes," Tefer says. "We are not entirely sure that we can call this a church, because we have never uncovered a church in Israel that was built before the year 325 and we simply do not know how churches built here at that time looked."
The year 325 is when Christianity was declared the official religion in the Roman Empire. Until then, the Christians in Palestine, as in the rest of the empire, were compelled to carry out the rituals of their religion in secret.

Fish and tables
There are four pictures and three Greek inscriptions on the floor discovered at Megiddo. Based on these findings, IAA archaeologists assume that these are the remains of a church that dates back before the year 325. Prof. Leah Di Segni, an expert on ancient inscriptions from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who deciphered and translated the texts found at Megiddo, supports their assumption, but also stated that a more precise dating could only be done after additional remains are uncovered.

Additional artifacts are apparently buried under the stratum where the floor was found. Di Segni has determined that the formulation of the inscriptions and the form of their letters testify to the fact that they were written prior to the declaration of Christianity as a legitimate religion in the Roman Empire.

According to the IAA, one of the inscriptions mentions the name of a woman: "Akeptus, the devout, dedicated the table to God, Jesus Christ, as a memorial." IAA officials explain that the fact that the inscription mentions a "table" and not an "altar" indicates that it was written when Christianity operated "underground" and conducted its rituals around simple tables rather than altars, as was customary thereafter. The fact that fish are pictured on the floor and not crosses also testifies to its antiquity: At the beginning of the fourth century, fish were still used as the main symbol of Christianity.

"The crossroads at Megiddo was considered during that period to be one of the most important intersections in Palestine, if not the most important," says Dahari, the deputy director of the IAA and a lecturer in archaeology at the University of Haifa, who wrote his doctoral thesis on ancient Christianity. The route leading from Caesarea in the west to Beit Shean in the east merged at Megiddo with the road that connected Be'er Sheva and Hebron − via Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nablus, Jenin and Megiddo − with Acre, Tyre and Sidon in the north. "Megiddo is a high point," Tefer explains, "from which it is possible to look to the north toward Nazareth and to the east toward the Jezreel Valley and Mount Tabor."

The large military base that served the Roman legions during the third century was located to the west of today's Megiddo junction, and was evacuated at the end of that century. The civilian population in the Megiddo area, according to Dahari, was composed of Christians, Jews, Samaritans and pagans. The religious mixture changed during the fourth century: The Jewish population assimilated within the Christian population, and the Jewish village Othnai located adjacent to Megiddo was replaced by a large Byzantine city,

Maximianopolis. Dahari says that this city became an important Christian center, headed by a bishop. Before the ancient mosaic floor was discovered, IAA excavators working at the Megiddo prison found a
number of items that originated in that city.

Possible confrontation
Several days after the discovery of the mosaic was first reported on Channel 2, there were still many people milling about in the tent that has been built over it. Dozens of reporters and television crews from all over the world arrived at the site that morning. Many of them said that their editors had expressed great interest in what was perceived to be a discovery that could shed light on ancient Christianity. During the afternoon, one could see additional groups of visitors arriving one after another to look at the floor that has survived for nearly 1,700 years. They mingled with workers from the IAA, with the prisoners that assisted them, with wardens − until the place looked much more like a museum than a prison.

Alongside a group of IPS officials, who peered at what had been hidden under the concrete floor where the beds of thousands of Palestinian administrative detainees had been for decades, was a group of archaeologists from several universities and research institutes. The IAA had invited them to come to hear their views on the significance of the findings and the best way to preserve them. Along with an economist representing the Government Tourist Corporation, who came to make an initial assessment of the economic potential of the discovery, there were senior staff from the Israel Nature & National Parks Protection Authority, who came to check the possibility of linking the new site to Tel Megiddo − an archaeological site it manages on the western side of the intersection.

Amid the tumult they created, there was also a photographer roaming around, equipped with cameras and sophisticated lighting tripods, who photographed the mosaic from every possible angle. President Moshe Katsav is due to give the pictures that were taken to Pope Benedict XVI in Rome this week. The Vatican's ambassador in Israel, Pietro Sambi, was one of the first to take interest in the discovery, shortly after the initial report was broadcast.

The main question that occupies everyone, and will continue to do so during the coming months, is what to do with the ancient and important floor: leave it within the walls of the prison, move it for display elsewhere, or leave it in situ and move the prison to another location. This is a thorny question whose answer many parties will seek to
influence, but only the government will cast the deciding vote here.

According to the Christian faith, Mount Megiddo, called Armageddon in the New Testament, is the site where the apocalyptic war of Gog and Magog will take place; following this war, Jesus is supposed to rise again and bring redemption to the world. To judge by the current rumblings, three statutory bodies have already begun to plan for a miniature war of Gog and Magog
here: the IAA, which will seek to extend its jurisdiction over the important findings, the parks authority, which will seek to annex it to Tel Megiddo, and the IPS, which will not want to give up the premises of the facility where the discoveries were made.

Meanwhile, the IAA has decided to transfer the mosaic to its laboratories to conduct vital maintenance and preservation work, but they made a point of emphasizing that this was only a temporary move and that the floor would be returned to its original spot after this work is completed.
IPS officials, meanwhile, are saying: "We are elated about the value of the mosaic, just as much as the IAA's officials." But they make a point of emphasizing the extreme shortage of prison space and the fact that they had already invested a large sum in expanding the Megiddo Prison prior to the discovery.

The decision concerning whether to turn the Megiddo area into an international tourist site or to keep the prison there will ultimately be made by the government. But the members of that government are currently preoccupied with much more pressing issues.

The tourism minister, Abraham Hirchson, was quick to declare, already at the beginning of last week: "The prison should be moved to another spot and Megiddo should be developed into a tourist site that will attract hundreds of thousands of tourists." However, it is doubtful whether any of his colleagues, who are currently busy securing their political futures, have given any thought to the future of the ancient Christian church at Megiddo. The fate of the mosaic will apparently be decided by the next government, whenever it is formed.


WORLD STAGE | Rumors of the ultimate war

Armageddon: Soon?

The crises in the Middle East have some saying the end times are near.

The Kansas City Star

“Israel cannot allow Iran to be nuclear, and America cannot allow Iran to be nuclear.”


John Hagee and Stephen J. Stein are of completely different minds when it comes to predicting whether the world is fast approaching the biblical “last days.”

Hagee, an author of 21 books and a San Antonio pastor with a worldwide radio and television ministry, is convinced recent armed conflict in the Middle East and the specter of Iran are proof that the apocalyptic battle of Armageddon — the war to end all wars to be fought in Israel — is not far off.

“The end of the world as we know it is rapidly approaching,” Hagee writes in Jerusalem Countdown, the latest of his six books on the end times.

Stein, on the other hand, is an Indiana University emeritus professor who has made a study of the apocalyptic predictions held by people like Hagee, and to date, he contends, they’ve all been wrong.

“There have been evangelical preachers in America talking about the end times for more than 2 1/2 centuries,” said Stein, author of The Continuum History of Apocalypticism. And the end has yet to come.

Historically the volume of talk of “end times” prophecies, of the “final days” and of Armageddon increases when armed conflict breaks out in the Middle East, such as the recent war between Israel and Hezbollah. And now, for Hagee in particular, the standoff involving the United States, Israel and Iran is a sign of biblical prophecy.

To arrive at these predictions, conservative Christian pastors like Hagee and the Rev. Jerry Falwell interpret sections of the Old Testament, particularly the books of Ezekiel and Daniel, as prophecy, or predictions, of coming events.

Falwell recently said that “the present-day events in the Holy Land may very well serve as a prelude or forerunner to the future battle of Armageddon and the glorious return of Jesus Christ.”

Christians who subscribe to this biblical interpretation generally come from the conservative Protestant wing of Christendom. Other branches of Christianity, such as Roman Catholics and many mainline Protestant denominations, express little interest in end-times discussions. Among those who believe certain world events point back to biblical prophecy, not all agree about how it will come or when.

Is Iran Magog?

Earlier this week President Bush and Iran’s president spoke separately to the United Nations. One issue on which the men disagreed is whether Iran should be allowed to develop its nuclear energy program, with the possibility it could build a nuclear weapon.

Iran plays a major role in how Hagee sees Old Testament prophecy playing out in the present.

“Israel cannot allow Iran to be nuclear,” he said in an interview, “and America cannot allow Iran to be nuclear.” Stopping Iran could mean some kind of conflict.

“Just before us is a nuclear countdown with Iran,” he wrote in Jerusalem Countdown, which came out earlier this year, “followed by Ezekiel’s war (as described in Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39), and then the final battle — the battle of Armageddon.”

To Craig Koester, however, Hagee and others are reading too much into the Bible. That approach, said the author of Revelation and the End of All Things, “generally involves arranging verses from the Bible in different ways to create scenarios of the future.”

“Sometimes,” said Koester, who teaches New Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn., “they try to link specific verses with events happening in the news today.”

Hagee, however, is not the only author who sees Iran having a major role in the final days. Best-selling Christian author Joel C. Rosenberg, whose novels deal with Bible prophecies, said the next war on the prophetic timetable will be what Bible scholars call the war of Gog and Magog.

Rosenberg foresees this fight “involving a military alliance between Russia, Iran and a group of other Mideast countries who try to wipe Israel off the map. Russia and Iran have never had a military alliance in the 2,500 years since the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote that prophecy, but they are forming one today.”


To the keepers of the Countdown to Armageddon Web site ( www.countdown.org), Armageddon is actually a battle “where God finally comes in and takes over the world and rules it the way it should have been ruled all along.”

In his book The Shadow of the Apocalypse, Paul Crouch, co-founder of the conservative Christian-oriented Trinity Broadcast Network, writes, “Jesus Christ … will rescue Israel, avenge those who have suffered in his name, punish the wicked, redeem the earth, imprison Satan and reign victorious over the earth.”

The name Armageddon is found in Revelation 16:16. It is part of a vision of the Apostle John in which kings from the East gather to oppose God. The name in Hebrew means Mount of Megiddo.

“Since Megiddo was a place where various armies were defeated (in history),” Koester said, “the name Armageddon is suitable for the battle at which the forces of evil are defeated at the end of time.”

The battle represents the final showdown between the forces of good and evil, said Cathy N. Gutierrez, religion professor at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, who writes on religion topics.

“While all three major monotheisms — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — believe in some version of an ultimate conflict between these forces, the use of the word Armageddon itself usually denotes a Christian understanding of these events,” she said.

“The second half of the Book of Daniel (chapters 7-12) is the original Judaic source for an apocalypse, or the final confrontation,” she said. “The Book of Revelation in the New Testament relies heavily on the predictions in Daniel, and many people have tried to use the two in conjunction to predict the arrival of the end time.”

In addition to Revelation 16:16, the chapters of Isaiah 63, Joel 3 and Zechariah 14 also speak of the final victory of God, Koester said.

“The battle itself is pictured in Revelation 19:11-21, where Christ appears as a rider on a white horse,” he said. “Literalistic interpreters generally focus on the devastation of the battle and link it to modern military technology, though they usually have to ignore the fact that the people in the vision are riding on horses.

“Interpreters who read Revelation literalistically will argue that armies will gather at the site of the ancient town of Megiddo,” Koester said. “… Other interpreters point out that the Old Testament names used in Revelation frequently have a symbolic meaning.”


During the recent fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, author Rosenberg told CNN that he sees Bible prophecy unfolding bit by bit in the Middle East right now. He has put forth his theories of events leading to the last days in novels such as The Ezekiel Option and The Copper Scroll and an upcoming nonfiction book, Epicenter: Why the Current Rumblings in the Middle East Will Change Your Future.

“There’s no question that we’re living in what the Bible calls the last days,” he said.

But Gutierrez said that throughout history the end-times prophecy passages have been interpreted to relate to many different times and events.

“In the 20th century the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union were seen as signs,” she said. “With the uncertainty in the world and particularly with any crisis in the Middle East, people reach to the idea of Armageddon in order to explain contemporary suffering and to fit scary events firmly into a divine plan so that history at least does not seem random or out of control.”

Stein added, “Some Christians have talked about the re-establishment of the state of Israel, the rebuilding of the temple in Israel, the conversion of the Jews to Christianity, etc., as signs of the times that precede the final struggle,” he said. “Others have identified the defeat of secular forces as the result of the battle. Any opponent or enemy can be linked to the evil side.”

Koester said he doesn’t think the Bible gives a step-by-step description of events that will take place at the end of time.

“Biblical prophecies give Christians the confident hope that God will defeat evil in the end,” he said. “… The Scriptures call Christians to put their faith in God rather than in their abilities to know where we are on God’s time line.”

But Hagee is unwavering in his faith that his assessment that Ezekiel’s prophecy is coming to life today.

“Following Ezekiel 38, Russia will give military leadership to the radical Islamics who want to destroy the state of Israel and control Jerusalem,” he said. “That is the battle of Gog and Magog. And God himself will destroy the Russian-Arab coalition. The world will see God defending Israel as it hasn’t seen since Pharaoh.”

Statement: Events such as the rebirth of the state of Israel, wars and instability in the Middle East, recent earthquakes and the tsunami in Asia are evidence that we are living in what the Bible calls the last days.


Israeli Nuclear Strike On Iran Turned Back

By William Thomas
Jan 18th 2007

A recent strike by nuclear-armed Israeli Air Force fighter-bombers bound for targets in Iran was turned back after being intercepted by U.S. fighters over Iraq, this reporter has learned.

Two sources have independently confirmed the encounter, which took place on January 7, 2007. Though the first informant offered few details beyond an initial tip, a second source long-known by this reporter to have well-placed U.S. and “non-U.S.” military and government contacts provided specific information regarding the raid, which was aimed at the radical religious ayatollahs holding ultimate power in Iran.

Israeli nuclear strikes are not unprecedented. Soon after Desert Storm, U.S. Navy pilots told this reporter in Kuwait how in late 1990 Israel made good on its pledge to respond in kind to WMD attacks by launching nuclear-armed aircraft against Baghdad following a lethal assault on Tel Aviv by Scud missiles tipped with chemical warheads. That air strike was called off when the Americans refused to provide the vital IFF codes needed to fly through U.S.-controlled airspace.

When questioned concerning the “Identification Friend or Foe” transponder codes needed to overfly Iraq today, this source said that allied Israeli aircraft are routinely provided “squawk codes” when flying missions aimed at acquiring the characteristics of air defence radars triggered by their approach to Syrian, Jordanian, Iranian and U.S.-controlled Iraqi airspace.

This source added that visiting IAF warplanes are routinely “topped off” by American aerial refueling tankers, but only on condition that the Israeli jets fly a “racetrack” holding pattern—and do not continue “downtown” toward Iran.

The designated turn back point is the “160 station”—a clearly charted tapline road located 160 kilometers from Baghdad. Any aircraft proceeding beyond this point must declare its intentions. Otherwise, a USAF F-15 will take position off its wingtip. After waggling its own wings to attract attention, if the interloper fails to turn back, the American Eagle “drops behind and gets tone” by locking a Sidewinder anti-aircraft missile onto the offending plane.

According to this very reliable source, on two previous occasions Israeli fighter-bombers armed with nuclear bombs have headed “downtown” before being turned back over Iraq.

The January 7th mission, which trespassed beyond 160 station before being recalled by Israeli authorities, comprised three IAF F-16s. Each carried conventional munitions—as well as a single 20-kiloton nuclear bomb.

The atomic detonation that razed the city of Hiroshima and killed 140,000 people outright was a 13-kiloton blast. [Agence France-Presse Aug 6/05]

This report of an attempted nuclear strike contradicts military analysts who have long maintained that Israel would deploy as many as 25 I-model F-15 fighter-bombers from the 69th Squadron based at Hatzerim Air Base in the northern Negev, about 50 miles south of Tel Aviv. Any Israeli Air Force attack, it is believed, must first suppress Iranian air defenses, while ensuring that enough conventionally-armed F-15s get through to set back that country’s widely dispersed nuclear program for many years.

The latest model F-15 can carry as much ordnance as a neighborhood-flattening World War II B-17 heavy bomber. As the independent think tank Strategic Forecasting points out, the IAF “has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to conduct long-range strikes”—including the 1976 raid on Entebbe, 2,600 miles from Israel, and a 1985 attack on the PLO headquarters in Tunis, 1,500 miles away. [www.stratfor.com]

But Iran’s air defenses are far more formidable than any the Israeli Air Force has yet faced. Manufactured at the KBM factory near Moscow, Russian-supplied SA-18 Igla-S mobile missile batteries are said to be highly effective against low-flying jets. According to Russian intelligence sources known as DEBKA, the Igla’s mobility “makes them difficult to target and limits the maneuverability of Israeli planes.”

DEBKA has also revealed that Russian advisers from the Raduga OKB engineering group based in Dubna near Moscow have completed installing two advanced radar systems around the Bushehr nuclear reactor on the Persian Gulf. Codenamed “Tin Shield”, the mobile 36D6 systems are modified to protect Iran’s Russian-supplied nuclear facilities from American or Israeli aircraft, stand-off missiles, and cruise missile attacks. On January 12, 2006, Tin Shields also went operational around the uranium enrichment plants at Isfahan in central Iran.

Other air defenses supplied by Moscow to Syria—and most likely Iran—include advanced mobile SS-26 Iskander-E surface to surface missiles carrying a 1,000-pound multiple warhead capable of dodging air defense radars and electronic jamming, as well as surface-to-air SA-10 “Grumble” missiles capable of engaging several targets simultaneously at various altitudes, and SA-18 “Grouse” shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles fitted with a 4.5-pound high-explosive warhead. The SA-18 has a maximum range of 5.2 kilometers and a maximum altitude of 3.5 kilometers.

Another major worry for Israeli pilots is Iran’s first satellite. Carried into orbit by a Russian booster in October 2005, the Sinah-1 can provide a “look down” capability to spot low-flying aircraft long before they intrude Iranian airspace.

“The Iranians’ space programme is a matter of deep concern to us,” said an Israeli defence source at the time. “If and when we launch an attack on several Iranian targets, the last thing we need is Iranian early warning received by satellite.”

Moscow has also supplied an estimated $1 billion worth of advanced Tor-M1 anti-missile systems capable of destroying guided missiles and laser-guided bombs dropped from high-flying aircraft. “Once the Iranians get the Tor-M1, it will make our life much more difficult,” worried an Israeli air force source. “We can’t waste time on this one.” [www.envirosagainstwar.org; Sunday Times Dec 11/05; WorldNetDaily.com Dec 11/05]

According to DEBKA, Moscow intends to secure its investment at Bushehr “against the fate of the Saddam Hussein’s French-built Tamuz nuclear center, which the Israeli air force bombed out existence 24 years ago.”

Fitted with modified drop tanks to extend their range, a trio of smaller, more agile F-16s presents a much more difficult challenge to Iran’s defenders than a larger force of twin-engine F-15s. Renowned for their ability to “tweak” American-supplied weapons, the Israelis have, according to my inside source, managed to reduce the F-16’s radar profile “to the size of a kid’s tricycle.”

As he described it, “We fuel ‘em up and they go off the reservation, hit afterburners, hit the deck, and vanish...”
Demonstrating his insider knowledge, he further noted that the Israelis have modified the original drop tanks supplied by the Americans to simultaneously feed the F-16’s single engine, thereby avoiding the fuel management distractions required to keep the fighter in balance using the one-tank-at-a-time U.S. system.

Also unlike their USAF counterparts, Israeli F-16s can simultaneously jettison their spent underwing fuel tanks without the risk of a tumbling drop tank striking live ordnance suspended under the fighter’s wings.

But even fitted with drop-tanks, unless assisted by USAF tankers or allowed to land in Iraq, low-flying F-16’s will burn too much fuel to return. Unless they receive a message in flight to turn back, this source said, Israeli pilots “have already been told before they get into the plane they are not coming back.” He added that volunteer pilots are prepared to fly their nuclear bombs “into their targets” if necessary.

On January 7, after crossing into Iranian airspace, the three ground-hugging nuclear-armed Israeli F-16s would have turned north. Using conventional munitions, the jets would have attacked the 3rd Tactical Air Base at Hamadan to preclude pursuit by the obsolete Iranian air force F-4s stationed there.

Because the small Israeli strike force was expected to be flying a one-way mission, more modern Iranian F-5s and MiG-29s based at the 2nd Tactical Air Base at Tabriz would not have presented a problem on egress. [www.stratfor.com]

This source further stated that the crowded Iranian capitol and the “huge” Revolutionary Guard training facility at Hamadan are “defined targets.” He added that Hamadan is also the Revolutionary Guard’s “central depository for WMD.”

Late in 1990, as a Desert Storm gathered on Iraq’s western border, a convoy of six blacked out transport trucks departed a heavily guarded al-Jesira factory loading dock just outside Mosul. The vehicles included a 1983 red and white Scania transport van, a 1985 Scania with white cab and red box, an orange 1975 MAC truck, an orange 1986 Scania, a brown and white Volvo truck of unknown vintage, and another Scania transport sporting an orange cab and red box.

Already targeted by allied war planners, the al-Jesira Factory produced the uranium hexaflouride used in the difficult technical task of turning low-grade uranium into highly enriched uranium for weapons purposes.

License plates obscured with mud, and traveling only at night, the trucks drove south to a second loading stop in Baghdad, before turning east into Iran. According to a declassified U.S. military intelligence report, the containers sent to Shiite Teheran by Saddam’s dissident Shiite generals were clearly labeled: “Tularemia,” “Anthrax,” “Botulinum” and “Plague”.

Their gift package also included an advanced Hewlett Packard computer, and a Linatron X-ray machine marked “pbg”. Both were shipped from Iraq’s nuclear weapons facility at Mosul, along with sealed containers of uranium hexafluoride. Details of these WMD transfers were contained in a September 30, 2004 U.S. Department of Defence intelligence report widely distributed among U.S. government and military leaders: Filename:22010744.91r, PATHFINDER RECORD NUMBER: 11224; SUBJ: TRANSFER OF NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) MATERIEL DURING DESERT STORM [original text: www.gulfwarvets.com/gulflink/95071920.txt]

Also contradicting military aviation experts and IAF cover stories, this source revealed that the intended targets on July 7th were not aimed at turning Iran’s five heavily defended nuclear reactors into as many Chernobyls. Nor could the Israeli attackers expect to hit Iran’s hundreds of widely dispersed nuclear research facilities. Instead, the January 7 mission objective was to pre-empt Teheran’s ability to attack Israel by eliminating Iran’s “Command and Control”—the religious leadership holding the “go codes” required to launch an Iranian attack on Israel.

“This cuts off the head of the snake and makes response impossible,” my source said. “Decapitating” the country’s top leaders is possible, he went on, because they tend to feel safer by congregating. “Iranians are so untrusting of the communications networks and methodologies most other people use, they don’t use the Internet,” he asserted. “They use the ‘sneaker net’ to walk the message over.”

According to a London newspaper, a “massive” Israeli intelligence operation has been underway in Iran since that country was designated the “top priority for 2005.” [Sunday Times Dec 11/05]

But my source described “years” of insertions of Israeli agents into Iran. Besides locating that country’s underground nuclear installations, Israeli “moles” are principally charged with “pinpointing individuals that would have to be taken out,” he said. “To assure that the government is nonfunctional, you have to go at least 10 people back” from Iran’s top religious and political leaders.

“ It’s like a fatwa,” he continued. Acting as “target designators,” Israeli agents equipped with miniaturized homing beacons “stay glued” to Iranian leaders.” Because Iran’s religious and civil leadership often holds meetings on trains, a single well-timed Israeli strike “can take them all out,” he affirmed. “Going downtown, goin’ for the black robes, they have on the ground confirmation.”

Unlike a conventional high-explosive bomb, detonation of a hydrogen bomb ensures “success” in aborting a perceived Iranian attack by frying that all of that country’s computers, phones, radio and other electronic equipment in a massive Electromagnetic Pulse. Because Iranian military electronics are not “hardened” against EMP, and because Iranian war-fighting doctrine stipulates that commanders “use everything they have and hold nothing in reserve,” this source pointed out that if an Israeli air raid is suspected, “all their stuff will be lit up.” As a consequence, after an EMP from an atomic air burst, “Everything on will now be permanently off.”

So will everyone caught in the initial blast wave and firestorm extending more than a dozen miles from the mushrooming blast’s epicenter, as well as all those caught in the radioactive fallout that follows. Ensuring regional radiation sickness, the sharkay day wind blows from NW to SE over Iran and surrounding countries, before shifting 180 degrees during the nighttime shamal.

With Iranian missiles able to hit Tel Aviv and the Israeli nuclear plant and atom bomb dump at Dimona, and major powers pledged to Teheran’s defense, how Israel and the world expects to escape the moral, military and political consequences of another Hiroshima was not explained.

According to my informant, the three “warning” nuclear strikes launched against Iran and aborted by Israel came in response to threatening military moves that accompanied belligerent public statements by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“When they start to deploy, you decapitate so they can’t issue a go order,” he said. “What would you do if your country was as small and vulnerable as Florida? If someone keeps saying they are going to punch you in the face, and then they start to get up out of their chair, what are you going to do? When it’s the survival of your family, the survival of your [race], there are no rules.”

Though this source would not confirm the other two dates, one Israeli nuclear strike might have been

launched shortly after December 14, 2005, when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a “myth” and suggested that Israel’s Jews be relocated to Europe or Alaska.

Dubbing Ahmadinejad, “Admin-job”, this source dismissingly described the Iranian President’s role as “tech support” for the radical ayatollahs, whose national constitution calls for unremitting terror attacks against Israel and the United States—despite near unanimous opposition by Iran’s predominantly younger demographic.

Because Ahmadinejad “does what the black robes tell him,” the Iranian president’s pre-approved public utterances are taken seriously by Israelis, who reportedly became alarmed just prior to

January 7 when the Iranian political leader made a short radio statement to his nation saying that a “consolidated” response was required to Bush “and the Zionists”. That the Iranian president issued his address over more publicly accessible shortwave radio, instead of making his usual televised announcement was apparently considered especially menacing by Israeli intelligence.

Likening Israel to a tiny white desert scorpion that is “utterly fearless” in its own defense, this source emphasized that its leaders are “more than deadly serious” in defending their UN-imposed homeland. Determining the point where Iran becomes “a mortal threat” to Israel’s security by crossing the so-called red line “is a minute by minute decision,” he said.

That red line was said to be breached in March 2006, when an Israeli army assessment warned that Iran was capable of enriching enough uranium to start producing nuclear weapons within three years. The previous December, Israeli President Ariel Sharon had declared, “Israel—and not only Israel—cannot accept a nuclear Iran. We have the ability to deal with this, and we’re making all the necessary preparations to be ready for such a situation.” [www.stratfor.com]

Israel’s military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi Farkash also warned the Knesset, “If by the end of March the international community is unable to refer the Iranian issue to the United Nations Security Council, then we can say the international effort has run its course.” [www.envirosagainstwar.org; Sunday Times Dec 11/05; WorldNetDaily.com Dec 11/05]

Writing for Newsweek and the Associated Press, Mideast journalist Robert Parry observes, “Bush is looking for ways to ‘double-down’ his gamble in Iraq by joining with Olmert—and possibly outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair—” in a desperate roll of violent dice.

Despite Israeli President Ehud Olmert’s misadventure in Lebanon, which has inflamed public sentiments against Israel and vastly strengthened Hammas—as well as Tony Blair’s deepening disgrace, and the resounding defeat of Bush’s war policies in the November 7, 2006 congressional elections—the three leaders have recently conducted private discussions: Olmert meeting with Bush on November 13, Blair visiting the White House on December 7, and Blair conferring with Olmert in Israel on December 18.

Sources close to Parry say “the three leaders are frantically seeking options for turning around their political fortunes as they face harsh judgments from history for their bloody and risky adventures in the Middle East.”

But the veteran correspondent adds, “There is a clock ticking… If the Bush-Blair-Olmert triumvirate has any hope of accomplishing the neoconservative remaking of the Middle East, time is running out. Something dramatic must happen soon.”

Parry refers to that “something” as “Armageddon.”

“I would expect an attack in the next six months,” concurred Larry Johnson, a former deputy director in the State Department’s counter-terrorism office, earlier this month. “This is not just planning for possible military contingencies. There is real planning underway for carrying out a military strike against Iran”—a strike the Israeli military has reportedly already attempted three times. [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

Faced with rising clamor for his own ouster among the American populace, and outright refusal by his top generals to carry out a previously ordered ground attack against Iran using B61-11 nuclear bombs, George Bush continues to defy nearly everyone, while claiming to receive his apocalyptic instructions directly from God. [New Yorker, Apr 17/06]

According to DEBKA, after stating in April 2006 that U.S. intelligence does not believe Iran could produce a nuclear weapon within a decade, then Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte “infuriated neoconservative hardliners who wanted a worst-case scenario on Iran’s nuclear capabilities, much as they pressed for an alarmist view on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction before the U.S. invasion in 2003.”

As DEBKA sees it, “Bush’s neocon advisers fear that if Bush doesn’t act decisively in his remaining two years in office, his successor may lack the political will to launch a preemptive strike against Iran.

“Attacks on Iran and Syria also would fit with Bush’s desire to counter the growing Shiite influence across the Middle East, which was given a boost by Bush’s ouster of the Sunni-dominated government of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.” [www.debkafile.com Jan 24/05]

The Washington Post agrees, reporting how “Bush began pondering how best to throttle Shiite expansionism” after the neocon fantasy “of a U.S.-orchestrated transformation of the Middle East had turned into a nightmare of rising Shiite radicalism.” [Washington Post, July 16/06]

Bush’s closest advisers also blame Syria and Iran for supporting Iraq’s defenders. “Lacking the military and political capacity to expand the conflict beyond Iraq, the Bush administration turned to Israel and its new Prime Minister Ehud Olmert,” DEBKA says.

By summer 2006, Israeli sources were describing Bush’s obsessive interest in finding a pretext to take down Syria and Iran. Toward this end, he removed the American Ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad when that moderate Muslim objected to Bush’s decision to hang Saddam Hussein. (While governor of Texas, Bush set an all-time record for hangings there.)

Parry also notes that on November 8, two days after Donald Rumsfeld’s memo urging a “minimalist” U.S. presence in Iraq, and the day after American voters threw the Republican majority out of the House and Senate, Bush fired his Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld “for going wobbly on the war.” [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

On January 4, 2007 Bush replaced his two top Middle East commanders after Generals John Abizaid and George Casey opposed his military escalation in Iraq. Alluding to upcoming attacks on Iran and Syria, Bush stated, “I’m not predicting any particular theater, but I am predicting that it’s going to take a while for the ideology of liberty to finally triumph…” [Consortium News Jan 8/07]

By then, he had already dispatched U.S. marines and two carrier task forces to the coast of Iran.

Working for the Canadian think tank, Global Research, Ottawa-based Middle East analyst Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya has pieced together Bush’s personal war fleet.

Now on station in the Persian Gulf, “Expeditionary Strike Group 5” includes more than 2,000 marines from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Equipped with landing craft and 38 helicopters, the marines are not going to bolster U.S. forces inside Iraq. Instead, they are prepared to “rapidly deploy” on orders received from either of two-men comprising the National Command Authority—the President, or the Secretary of Defense.

The Expeditionary Strike Group’s flagship, the marine assault vessel USS Boxer is accompanied by the massive dock landing vessel, USS Dubuque, the troop ship USS Comstock, battle cruiser USS Bunker Hill, guided-missile destroyers USS Benford and USS Howard, and HMCS Ottawa. Though ostensibly joining its American ally to prosecute the “War on Terror,” prior to steaming for Iran the Canadian frigate took part in Strike Group 5’s anti-submarine drills off Hawaii aimed at countering Iran’s diesel-electric submarines.

Leading this attack armada is the nuclear carrier USS Enterprise escorted by the destroyer USS McFaul, the frigate USS Nicholas, the battle cruiser USS Leyte Gulf, the attack submarine USS Alexandria, and the fast combat support ship USNS Supply.

A second powerful Strike Group comprises the similarly escorted nuclear aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower. One of these naval strike groups is steaming in the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea; the second is bottled up in the Persian Gulf.

As Nazemroaya narrates, “The Persian Gulf could be closed off and turned into a shooting gallery” by Iranian forces deploying advanced Chinese and Russian anti-ship missiles, as well as 225 miles-per-hour torpedoes.

In addition, Iran’s huge hovercraft fleet is augmented by missile-firing drones and helicopter squadrons, silent submarines, and new “Joshan” PT boats capable of speeds in excess of 45 knots. Equipped with a variety of missiles striking beyond 62 miles, the Joshans’ rapid-firing 76-mm shells can shred sea and air targets within 19 kilometers at altitudes up to 23,000 feet.

While such a pornographic catalogue of costly killing machines reads like a Tom Clancy thriller, the results of war in the Persian Gulf will be widespread death and chaos ashore, major casualties for the U.S. and Canadian navies, and worldwide economic and political spasm following the closing of major oil tanker routes through the Strait of Hormuz

Anticipating heavy losses, overall command and control of both Carrier Air Groups has for the first time been transferred onshore. The U.S. Coast Guard vessel USS Midgett has also been dispatched to assist U.S. and Canadian naval vessels wrecked by the Iranian armed forces.

Retired Colonel Gardiner, who once taught military strategy at the U.S. National War College, declares that the U.S. carrier deployments are “very important evidence” of Bush’s intentions to wage war against Iran. “It’s a very significant order, and it’s not done as a training exercise,” Gardiner noted. “You cannot issue a PTDO and then stay ready for very long,”

A PTDO requires all crews to be onboard, and all ships and aircraft ready to deploy by a certain date—in this case, October 1, 2006. “I think the plan’s been picked: bomb the nuclear sites in Iran,” says Gardiner. “It’s a terrible idea. It’s against U.S. law and it’s against international law, but I think they’ve decided to do it.”

Toward this end, Bush has appointed Admiral William Fallon as the new head of Central Command (CENTCOM) for the entire Middle East Theater of Operations. The former Navy pilot will oversee two ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as any American involvement following Israel’s proxy attacks on Iran.

According to DEBKA, “Though not considered a Middle East expert, Fallon has moved in neoconservative circles… attending a 2001 awards ceremony at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.” JINSA lobbyists dominate U.S. Middle East policy by encouraging the White House to directly link “American defense policy and the security of Israel.” [DEBKAfile Jan 24/05]

Award-winning Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk also links “Vice-President Dick Cheney, the arch-hawk in the U.S. administration” to the powerful JINSA. “Richard Perle, chairman of the Pentagon’s Defence Policy Board, is still an adviser on the institute, as is the former CIA director James Woolsey,” Fisk adds. “Perle advises the Defence Secretary…”

As Jeff Halper, an Israeli professor of anthropology and Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions points out, “Israel is a center of neocon ideology and mobilization. Many of the founders of neo-conservatism in the 1970s and most of its prominent advocates today are [Zionists]. This is not an irrelevant fact, nor is it ‘anti-Semitic’ to say so.”

Though opposed by many Jewish people, Zionists believe “every inch of the Holy Land should belong to Israel, and that there should never be a Palestinian state,” explains The Guardian’s Matthew Engel. [Days of Deception by William Thomas]

Robert Parry worriedly observes that U.S. naval strike forces currently steaming off Iran offers “perhaps a last chance at achieving the regional transformation that has been at the heart of Bush’s strategy of ‘democratizing’ the Middle East through [more] violence if necessary.”

Another source familiar with high-level thinking in Washington and Tel Aviv believes that an unstated reason for Bush’s troop surge is to bolster Baghdad’s Green Zone in anticipation of a mass uprising among Iraqi Shiites following attacks on Iran by Israeli and American forces. In addition to appointing a known “technocrat” to head CENTCOM, Bush has also replaced America’s top spy chief, John Negroponte with retired Vice Admiral John McConnell.

“Navy, Navy, Navy,” my source noted. “Do you see a pattern? The Gulf of Tonkin was started by the Navy. Admiral Crowe covered-up the shootdown of the Iranian Airbus” (by USS Vincennes), and the electromagnetic-beaming “poppers” used to interfere with the minds and moods of Iraq’s populace and national leadership were “a U.S. Navy invention put in place by the Office of Naval Intelligence.”

As for George Bush Senior—the man who gave the world the first Gulf War, more than 740,000 Iraqi deaths, and a thousand burning oil wells—”Navy,” he added. Regarding his son, this source pointed out, “He gets rid of everyone who’s telling him ‘no’. That to me is dangerous because there’s no fail-safe.”

Providing a “fail safe” for pressing home the January 7 nuclear strike were three IAF F-16s. “Only one needs to reach the target,” this source explained. “Of the other two, one is to take out resistance or hold hostage, the third is backup.”

He meant American “resistance”. In order to defend its national interest, if ordered to prosecute their attack on Iran, Israeli warplanes are prepared to take on their American sponsors, my source stated. But instead of dog-fighting over Baghdad, he described how altimeter-armed nuclear bombs set to go off at a specific altitude would prevent American fighters from shooting down the Israeli jets.

“Which way will the surge surge?” I asked.

My source laughed grimly. “We need a surge protector,” he declared. On January 7, the Israeli nuclear strike was turned back over al-Samawah, “a hair away from an-Nasiriyah. That was not the first time. It’s not going to be the last time. But every time it happens, it goes further and gets closer. There is no way to turn this off. This is not an ‘if’ – it’s a ‘when’”.

In a move that must have sent chills through wintertime Europe, a pugnacious Putin has reportedly informed EU leaders that he will “pull the plug” on Russian oil and natural gas shipments if Israel attacks Iran.

Heightening tensions, military exercises involving Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan forces were held in late August 2006. At the same time, China and Kazakhstan held joint “anti-terrorism” drills. That same month, war games coordinating Russian, Chinese, CSTO and Iranian forces took place throughout Iran.

In September 2006, Russia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan also held joint “anti-terrorism drills” aimed at blocking U.S. and NATO “interference”. During this time, China and Tajikistan also conducted their first joint military exercise.

“Roughly 12,000 mostly American troops in Afghanistan will begin to integrate with NATO in October 2006,” Nazemroaya further notes. Following attacks on Iran and Syria, NATO and the U.S. anticipate intervening in Pakistan, where the collapse of General Musharraf’s government could place Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal in the hands of that country’s al-Qaeda and Taliban opposition—and perhaps Osama bin Laden. [Global Research Oct 1/06; Navy Times Sept 12/06; Time; CNN Sept 17/06 Nation Sept 28/06]

Seeking further provocation with Teheran, on January 11, 2007, U.S. forces stormed the Iranian consulate in the northern Iraqi town of Irbil, seizing six staff members, computers and classified papers. Bush presaged the embassy raid by pledging to take a hard line towards Iran and Syria, whom he accused of “destabilizing” a country plunged into anarchy by the American occupation.

The U.S. also accuses Iran of seeking nuclear arms to counter the American and Israeli nuclear arsenals. Denying both charges, Tehran recently warned the U.N. General Assembly that escalating U.S. military involvement in the Middle East “threatens to drag the world into war.” [BBC Jan 11/07]

“ These war plans must be taken very seriously,” warns Global Research director Michel Chossudovsky. “The world is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The U.S. has embarked on a military adventure, a long war, which threatens the future of humanity. In the weeks ahead, it is essential that citizens’ movements around the world act consistently to confront their respective governments and reverse and dismantle this military agenda.”

This Canadian analyst further urges, “What is needed is to break the conspiracy of silence, expose the media lies and distortions, and confront the criminal nature of the U.S. Administration and of those governments which support it.”

As a Democratic Congress moves to block Bush’s latest military escalation, spontaneous street protests calling for his immediate impeachment have broken out in Santa Cruz, California and other U.S. cities. These demonstrations are expected to grow. Calling by cell phone from the raucous streets of Santa Cruz, resident Rich Valles said, “I’m getting the strong feeling that the American people are soon going to be taking this to Washington—where they will be joined by the army.”

In the end, it may be even more important to impeach Washington’s militaristic mindset, then the hangman it personifies.

  (Ch. 16 - 22)

-- XVI --

1) I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, Go a and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of God on the earth!

2) The first went, and poured out his bowl into the earth, and it became a harmful and evil sore on the people who had the mark of the beast, and who worshiped his image.

3) The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man. Every living thing in the sea died.

4) The third poured out his bowl into the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5) I heard the angel of the waters saying, You are righteous, who are and who were, you Holy One, because you have judged these things. 6) For they poured out the blood of the saints and the prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. They deserve this. 7) I heard the altar saying, Yes, Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments.

8) The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9) People were scorched with great heat, and people blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues. They didn’t repent and give him glory.

10) The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain, 11) and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores. They didn’t repent of their works.

12) The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates. Its water was dried up, that the way might be made ready for the kings that come from the sunrise.

13) I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs; 14) for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty.

15) Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn’t walk naked, and they see his shame.

16) He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.

17) The seventh poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came forth out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done!

18) There were lightnings, sounds, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since there were men on the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty.

19) The great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered in the sight of God, to give to her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

 20) Every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21) Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, b came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.

1) One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute, that famous city that sits on many waters,

 2) with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and those who dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her sexual immorality.

3) He carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.

4) The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of the sexual immorality of the earth.

 5) And on her forehead a name was written,



6) I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered with great amazement.

7) The angel said to me, Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

 8) The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on the earth and whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see that the beast was, and is not, and shall be present. a

 9) Here is the mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills, on which the woman sits.

10) They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, the one is, the other has not yet come. When he comes, he must continue a little while.

11) The beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goes to destruction.

12) The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour.

13) These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast.

14) These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful.

15) He said to me, The waters which you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.

16) The ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the prostitute, and will make her desolate, and will make her naked, and will eat her flesh, and will burn her utterly with fire.

17) For God has put in their hearts to do what he has in mind, and to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God should be accomplished.

18) The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

1) After these things, I saw another angel coming down out of the sky, having great authority. The earth was illuminated with his glory.

 2) He cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and she has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird!

3) For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality, the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from the abundance of her luxury.

4) I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you a have no participation in her sins, and that you a don’t receive of her plagues,

5) for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities.

6) Return to her just as she returned, and repay her double as she did, and according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix to her double.

7) However much she glorified herself, and grew wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning. For she says in her heart, ‘I sit a queen, and am no widow, and will in no way see mourning.’

 8) Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire; for the Lord God who has judged her is strong.

9) The kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived wantonly with her, will weep and wail over her, when they look at the smoke of her burning,

10) standing far away for the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For your judgment has come in one hour.’

11) The merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise any more;

12) merchandise of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk, scarlet, all expensive wood, every vessel of ivory, every vessel made of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble;

13) and cinnamon, incense, perfume, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, sheep, horses, chariots, slaves, and human lives.

14) The fruits which your soul lusted after have been lost to you, and all things that were dainty and sumptuous have perished from you, and you will find them no more at all.

15) The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, will stand far away for the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning;

16) saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was dressed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls!

17) For in an hour such great riches are made desolate.’ Every shipmaster, and everyone who sails anywhere, and mariners, and as many as gain their living by sea, stood far away,

18) and cried out as they looked at the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like the great city?’

19) They cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had their ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her great wealth!’ For in one hour is she made desolate.

20) Rejoice over her, O heaven, you a saints, apostles, and prophets; for God has judged your judgment on her.

21) A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all.

22) The voice of harpists, minstrels, flute players, and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatever craft, will be found any more at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you.

23) The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived.

24) In her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on the earth.

a In the original language, this word is plural.

1) After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation, power, and glory belong to our God:

2) for true and righteous are his judgments. For he has judged the great prostitute, who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and he has avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

3) A second said, Hallelujah! Her smoke goes up forever and ever. 4) The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah!

5) A voice came forth from the throne, saying, Give praise to our God, all you a his servants, you a who fear him, the small and the great!

6) I heard something like the voice of a great multitude, and like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!

7) Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready.

 8) It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

9) He said to me, Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ He said to me, These are true words of God.

10) I fell down before his feet to worship him. He said to me, Look! Don’t do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.

11) I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war.

12) His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself.

13) He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called The Word of God.

14) The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen.

15) Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty.

16) He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

17) I saw an angel standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, Come! Be gathered together to the great supper of God, b

18) that you a may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great.

19) I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army.

20) The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.

21) The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth. All the birds were filled with their flesh.

1) I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.

2) He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole inhabited earth, and bound him for a thousand years,

3) and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were finished. After this, he must be freed for a short time.

4) I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as didn’t worship the beast nor his image, and didn’t receive the mark on their forehead and on their hand. They lived, and reigned with Christ for the thousand years.

 5) The rest of the dead didn’t live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

6) Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him one thousand years.

7) And after the thousand years, Satan will be released from his prison,

8) and he will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to the war; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

9) They went up over the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. Fire came down out of heaven from God, and devoured them.

10) The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are also. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

11) I saw a great white throne, and him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. There was found no place for them.

12) I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and they opened books. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13) The sea gave up the dead who were in it. Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them. They were judged, each one according to his works.

14) Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

15) If anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

2) I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband.

3) I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.

4) He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.

5) He who sits on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new. He said, Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.

6) He said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life.

7) He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son.

8) But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, a idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

9) One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were loaded with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb’s bride.

10) He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,

11) having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, as if it was a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12) having a great and high wall; having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels; and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

13) On the east were three gates; and on the north three gates; and on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14) The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them twelve names of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

15) He who spoke with me had for a measure, a golden reed, to measure the city, its gates, and its walls.

21) The twelve gates were twelve pearls. Each one of the gates was made of one pearl. The street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

 22) I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple.

23) The city has no need for the sun, neither of the moon, to shine, for the very glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

Fascinating "end-times" beliefs of some fundamentalist, "evangelical" Christians



- by Norio Hayakawa

One of the main characteristics of America's Neo-Conservative movement (although it seems to have lost its momentum these days) with the backing of Fundamentalist/"Evangelical" Christians, is their total support of Israel through the belief that contemporary Israel is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and the the U.S. must continue to support the State of Israel, no matter what.
A large number of America's Fundamentalist Christians and "Evangelicals", therefore,
believe that we are living in the "end-time" period of God prophetic calendar. I think that it is important to point out some of the "end-time" scenarios as envisioned by the supporters of this view.

Here is the typical order of prophetic events to come, as outlined by many Fundamentalist Christians and "Evangelicals" who hold on to the so-called Pre-Millenial, Dispensationalist, Pre-Tribulation viewpoints


They seem to believe that this could easily begin with the escalation of the Middle East conflict, involving Israel.   There is no doubt in my mind that Iran and Syria will initially play a major role in this conflict.
The Ezekiel 38 scenario includes the attempted invasion into Israel by all Islamic forces (led and orchestrated by the northern-most power, i.e., Russia) and will conclude with a miraculous Israeli victory.
They believe that it is suggested in the Bible that it will take 7 years to bury the dead from this unprecedented conflagration. (The U.S. could be involved, directly or indirectly in this conflagration, they explain).


According to their belief, the Ezekiel 38 scenario will conclude with the appearance of the Anti-Christ who will create a Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians (and all Islamic confederation).
(It was recently reported that Iran's Ahmadinejad believes that he could be the one that could be welcoming the coming, long-awaited Islamic prophet, "Imam" - i.e., the "Anti-Christ", to the Fundamentalist Christians)


They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario could also conclude with the simultaneous disappearance of millions of people from this earth, which will result in total chaos, confusion and fear among the global populace. This, they say, is the "Rapture". It will be a mysterious, mass "evacuation" of the believers to meet the Lord in "mid-air". (The physical bodies will be mysteriously and instantaneously converted to celestial bodies). In other words, "born-again" believers will be translated from one side to the other side, i.e., from the earthly plane to the heavenly dimension and will meet Jesus in "mid-air".
The "Rapture" (from "raptare", to "snatch" away, as in the eagle "snatching" away her baby when danger comes and taking it away to a safer location, etc.), is a supernatural event clearly suggested in the Bible that has not happened yet in the history of mankind, but will be certain to happen, according to most of these pre-tribulationist/dispensationalist believers.
It will be an inexplicable, instantaneous disintegration of all atomic particles of each of our cells of our tissues, i.e., the instant conversion of our physical body into a spiritual, celestial "body" which will be swooshed up into "mid-air". In other words, they believe that "in the twinkling of an eye", our physical bodies will go through a mysterious sudden transmogrification (a favorite word used by John Keel) and will be lifted up to meet the Lord in "mid-air". Our entire physical bodies (the tissues, the cells will go through a sudden, inexplicable atomic fission-type transformation, they say.
They believe that the "Rapture" is a conduit prepared by God for us to escape the coming global wrath know as the Tribulation (comparable to the days of Noah, when God safely placed a few faithful believers in the ark first and then caused the rain to downpour thereafter).
Pre-tribulationist/dispensationalists believe that this unprecedented event will take place simultaneously with the appearance (the revealing) of the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ will not be able to come to power until the "body of believers" (together with the presence of the Holy Spirit) is removed from this earth. Only then, at that moment, can the Anti-Christ come into power.
The "Rapture" will literally be a celestial wedding, the union of the bride (the "church" or the "body of believers") and the Groom (Jesus Christ). This "wedding" celebration in the air will last for 7 days, which could be equivalent to 7 earthly years.

Directly related or not to this "Rapture" concept, there is an interesting item written by the Bard of Ely entitled:

PROJECT BLUE BEAM and the coming GRAND DECEPTION:   http://hubpages.com/hub/Is-Project-Bluebeam-the-Grand-Deception


When the Anti-Christ appears on global emergency TV news conference, many of these Fundamentalist Christians say that he would calm down the frightened people of the earth with his ingenious, well-calculated explanation regarding the sudden disappearance of millions of people from the earth; this could be when "UFOs" are brought up; the Anti-Christ could use some type of "extraterrestrial" intervention explanation. (By the way, in the U.S., the majority of the so-called Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians hold on to the viewpoint that somehow the "UFO" phenomenon is "Satanic" or "diabolical". These groups seem to believe that "UFOs" will play a major role in these future biblical prophecies. Some theorists even believe that if a global government of some sort is to be set up intentionally (by force) in the future, there are several ways to accomplish it. Creating wars is one example, they say. Creating other series of "crises" is another, such as manipulating natural global catastrophes, or even creating artificial ones. We all heard of the "ORDO AB CHAOS" theory. They also point out that Henry Kissinger at one time suggested that should the world suddenly face an external threat (i.ei., from "outer space") whether REAL or PROMULGATED, it would accelerate a cry for a global unified government. They say that Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev also had allegedly made such similar remarks, that if the world is faced with such an extraterrestrial threat, we will all forget our differences and be united as one to defend this earth from such threats. Can the "world government" stage a deceptive, "alien-contact-landing" scenario? If the secret government were to stage such a fake, "extraterrestrial" type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in "UFOs" and "aliens"). In any case, Fundamentalist, "Evangelical" Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the "Rapture" event and that somehow, (supernaturally) the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.


That will be the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation Period (i.e., the "New World Order" of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).


Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as Red China (and the rest of the "Kings of the East") will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ's Europe-based New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.
This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.
During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ (and accompanied by those who had been "raptured") will descend and will destroy all earthly forces.


Jesus Christ will rule from Israel for a 1000 years. This is the Millennial Kingdom.


At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies. That minor rebellion will be crushed by God.


This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial and Pre-Tribulational Christians.
Is this all wild, "science fiction"?
Maybe. But again, no one knows.
Does it hurt to believe in this "unbelievable" scenario?
These "Evangelical" Christians seem to say that it won't hurt at all to believe that such scenarios could come true.
They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn't come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer. Personally I subscribe to this viewpoint





President Bush in An Ancient Land!

Recently, President George W. Bush arrived in the State of Israel on what he referred to as a “peace mission.” His date of arrival was January 8th, 2008, a new moon and the first day of the Hebrew month Shevat. This is the eleventh month in the Hebrew calendar. In addition to that, forty years have now passed since the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967. With those numbers in mind: first day, eleventh month, and forty years, consider the words of Deuteronomy 1:3 & 8, as follows: “And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the Lord had given him in commandment unto them……Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.”

I find it rather remarkable that President Bush would show up on that very day with the intention of not only dividing the ancient land to create a Palestinian State, but also to divide the city of Jerusalem itself! President Bush set forth a checklist for creating the new State of Palestine, which would force the State of Israel to give up the West Bank, Golan Heights, and East Jerusalem. (18) Is President Bush by his actions catapulting us into World War III and bringing forth the final fulfillment of Scripture? This is a touchy and sensitive issue for Jews and the Moslem world. It is Jerusalem that is the prime point of contention. In Zechariah 12:2-3 we read as follows: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

When President Bush arrived in Israel, he was presented a document called Megillat Bush, or the Bush Scroll. It was presented by the New Jewish Congress, the Sanhedrin, and the Holy Temple and Temple Mount movements. The scroll declared and reasserted Divine right for the Jews to have an undivided land of Israel and city of Jerusalem. I have a copy of this scroll in front of me, and the striking thing about it is the title by which President Bush is called. The two lines preceding the second paragraph of the scroll read as follows: “Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, The Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. (Ezekiel 38:1) Leader of the West.” (19) Why would the high councils of the State of Israel call President Bush by this title? Ezekiel 38:1-3 reads as follows: “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” The remainder of the chapter goes on to tell us that this “chief prince” brings forth a great war in the Middle East, involving many nations. Are we, at this very time, witnessing the fulfillment of some of the last prophecy? How much more specific can it get?

We also know that President Bush is continually railing against Iran as a great threat to peace. Will this Gog of the land of Magog, the chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal, start a war with Iran? If he does, we must all take note of the fact that on December 27th, 2007, Russia declared that they would supply Iran with full air defense. The Russian High Command also issued the following statement: “Our capabilities outstrip the U.S. Patriot missile system. The S-300 missile systems could inflict significant damage to the U.S. or Israeli forces were they to attack Iran.” (20)

I must mention one more amazing thing that comes to mind when I consider the title given to President Bush by the high officials in the State of Israel. When George W. Bush stole the election for the first time and became President, I was in contact with a person whose late father had been a member of the secret order known as the Skull and Bones. This woman had the documents to prove what she was saying, and there is no way I will ever release her name to anyone. Here let it be noted that when George W. Bush was initiated in the Tomb of the Skull & Bones at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, he was given a new name, even as all initiates are given a new name upon completion of their initiation. The name given to George W. Bush was Magog!...

Gog, Magog, and the Scroll of Bush

"And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal."

Ezekiel 38:1-3
"And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord."

Ezekiel 39:6

An historic event occurred in Jerusalem this January, an event chronicled widely in Israel's newspapers but omitted entirely by America's Zionist controlled and owned press. President George W. Bush, visiting the nation of Israel, was presented with a rabbinical decree, the Scroll of Bush. The Scroll declared that he, Bush, is none other than the prophesied Gog, of the land of Magog; that is, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Even as America's economic crisis grew deeper, with hundreds of thousands losing their homes due to mortgage foreclosures, the U.S. stock market sliding south, the U.S. dollar sinking like a rock against foreign currencies, and labor statistics showing unemployment rising as more and more American workers are laid off and manufacturing sent overseas, our President George W. Bush embarked on Air Force One on an eight day trip to Israel.

Yes, like bloody Roman Emperor Nero, who reportedly fiddled while Rome burned, a callous and indifferent George Bush left a desperate country and people gasping for breath to go to the Middle East and consult with his superiors—Zionist rabbinical overlords.

Arriving on 666, a Prophetically Appropriate Date

He arrived in Jerusalem 1/09/08, numerically translated in occult numerology as 666. On 1/11 (the 11th of January), he and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert, along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, were taken down into the earth, inside Zedekiah's Cave, for a clandestine ritual and black mass conducted by the Grand Master of Israel's Freemasons. The same day, Bush visited Yad Vashem, Israel's version of the Holocaust Museum, where he stayed exactly 90 minutes, a number again translating into 666.

George W Bush with Israeli Flag
While in Jerusalem, President Bush and Prime Minister Olmert met with the press and referred to several key dates approaching. March 20th would signal the Jewish holy day of Purim, commemorating the mass murder and genocide by the Jews of more than 75,000 Gentile "enemies" of Persia (Iran) in the days of the Jews' Queen Esther. On May 8, Israel celebrates its 60th anniversary. Finally, President Bush predicted that by the end of his term in 2009 (2x9=18, translating again, into that number 666), there will be a peace treaty between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The treaty will insure that the Palestinians will forever be squeezed into their pitiful, apartheid, poverty-stricken ghettos, while the victorious Jews enjoy the fruits of their crimes, luxuriously living in an enlarged, Greater Israel. 

But those things were not the most significant that happened during Bush's historic visit. No, that occurred on the third day when, at a banquet, President Bush was presented with the Scroll of Bush, a document made out on ancient parchment and signed by the three most spiritually prominent Jews on planet earth:

  • Rabbi Adin Steinzaltz, High Priest of the Sanhedrin
  • Rabbi Haim Richman, Chief Rabbi of the Holy Temple
  • Dr. Gadi Eschel, Chief Representative of The New Jewish Congress
The Scroll of Bush (Page 1)
The Scroll of Bush identifying the U. S. President as the "esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekial 38:1) Leader of the West!" (Click to enlarge)
The Scroll of Bush, the first page of which is pictured here, pompously claims to be promulgated, "In the Name of the Lord, Eternal God." Of course, this is not Jesus Christ, since the Jews hate and despise Jesus Christ and brand him an illegitimate bastard and blasphemer in their Judaic Holy Law, the Talmud. Jesus himself said their "Lord" is, in fact, the Devil! 

Bush Identified as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal

The Scroll goes on to address Bush as, "The Honorable Mr. George W. Bush, President of the United States of America." Then, however, in a most shocking and prophetic manner, the Scroll of Bush, a document representing the entire Jewish nation both in Israel and dispersed throughout the world, a document composed by and authenticated by the highest religious rabbis on the planet, addressed Bush by yet another title:
"Esteemed Mr. George W. Bush, the Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1), Leader of the West!"

Oh my, oh my. This is an occult mystery of tremendous prophetic significance, one so incredibly deep and so stunningly revealing that I am offering to my friends this month an exhaustive 60-minute audiotape/CD investigative report, carefully and fully explaining what all this means (Gog, Magog, and the Scroll of Bush—Jewish Sanhedrin Honors President George W. Bush as "Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal" Tape or CD).

There can be no doubt that President Bush knows exactly why he holds the satanic title of "Gog, of the land of Magog," also known as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. The "Leader of the West," as the Rabbis also put it, "shall be incarnated and possessed by Satan himself in the last days. The Scriptures say he, as Chief Prince, "shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea" (Revelation 20:7-8).

Bush toasts Israeli Prime Minister Olmert
President George W. Bush toasts Israeli Prime Minister Olmert during a visit to Jerusalem where Bush was presented the Scroll of Bush honoring him as Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal; That makes Bush "Gog, of the land of Magog."

"Magog" of Skull and Bones


The Tomb: Home to the Skull and Bones
The Tomb, the mausoleum-like dwelling of the 15 bonesmen chosen each year to become favored alumni of the Order of Skull and Bones. Both President George Bush, Sr. and his son, President George W. Bush, were initiated into this secret society. Each was given a secret name and Senior Bush’s name was Magog.
Decades ago, as George Bush, Sr., lay naked in a coffin, inside the bowels of the Tomb, the macabre, mausoleum residence of the Order of Skull and Bones, located next to the old town cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut, his fellows performed a hellish death ritual and raised George from his sarcophagus. They gave him, as they do all initiates, a new name. Hence more, George Herbert Walker Bush would secretly be known by the Brotherhood as "Magog." 

Now, on a mission for his infernal Lord Lucifer, comes President George W. Bush, son of the bonesman named "Magog," to Jerusalem, Israel. There, the chief religious officials—including the High Priest of the reconvened Sanhedrin, the same devilish body that so long ago commanded that Jesus our Lord be tortured and crucified on a primitive wooden cross—recognized and honored Mr. Bush as Gog, of the land of Magog, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1).

The Unwise Haven't a Clue

Imagine: Three hundred million people residing in the U.S.A. and only a few—the wise who believe and honor the word of God and the Lord's prophetic scriptures—are able to understand the profound nature of such a cardinal event. Of course, the rabbis and the Masons of Israel, disciples of Satan—they know. But America's Senators and Congressmen, America's TV news celebrities, America's radio talk show personalities, and the dumbed-down, Christ-rejecting masses—they haven't a clue.

The wise and informed, however, understand and shall be rewarded. But the careless and wicked shall perish in their ignorance and stupidity. Such is truth. Such is prophecy.


"And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."

Daniel 12:9-10
