America’s Fall, the Last Eight Years: A Parable in Pictures

Update 22 April, 2014-

Granted, there are more than 12 events that are prophetic in showing America’s fall, but these 12 are those the Holy Spirit led me to.  Interestingly, using a simple calendar converter we can find the mean midpoint of these 12 dates- stunningly the midpoint is the same day as Event #7, the fall of the Presidential Seal!  That’s right, taking the modified Julian date (MJD) for each of these 12 events, and dividing by 12, we end up on MJD 55474, October 5 of 2010!  For the interpreted “meaning” of the event, please scroll down. Hint- it has to do with both a “fall” and “doubling”.  The median, on the other hand, can be found be adding the first and last MJDs which, coincidentally (right?) add up to 110,666 . . . that date is May 4 of 2010.

There was a comment on the Watcher Forum, where this article was copied, in which a reader thought a couple of signs from “The Harbinger” would be appropriate to have added here . . . as I mentioned in a comment here (below), the Holy Spirit steered me away from any Harbinger connections as these have been well documented . . . also, He steered me away from any mention of deceased persons.

Update 21 April, 2014-

Wow, I’m just now listening to Martin Armstrong on TruNews talking about the fall of the Roman Empire taking place in 8.6 years from “near peak” to “collapse”-

America’s fall will be in a “moment” of an “hour” of a “day”, but the signs of the coming fall have already begun to manifest.

—————————————————————-

Part I; The prophetic significance of Babylon, New York:

Several years ago, while engaged in intensive research to uncover the identity of end-times Babylon, also known as Babylon the Great, I became aware of a certain town near New York City named “Babylon”.  Later, I discovered that there is also a village of Babylon, which is one of the three villages of the town Babylon (the others being Amityville and Lindenhurst).  Why is this important?  The country United States of America is referred to as “Babylon” and “the daughter of Babylon” throughout much of the Old Testament, and as “Babylon” and “Babylon the Great” in Revelation.  In addition, the U.S.A. has as her most important city New York City, also designated as “Babylon” in Revelation.  [There is a Biblical and historic precedent for such nomenclature- the ancient city of Babylon was the main and capital city within the empire of Babylon]  Therefore, I found it fascinating that a town of “Babylon” actually exists mere miles from Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and New York Harbor.  To help illustrate what I’m getting at, specifically, I’ll start with a few quotes; the first from author R.A. Coombes (bold emphasis within quotes by C.M.N. throughout this article)-

There is a populated city named Babylon on a deepwater port entryway to New York City.  Revelation 17:18; & 18:11-19…… Did you know that when ships coming into the harbor facilities of New York City make their final approach to the Harbor channel shipping lanes……they have to come in from the south…… heading due North straight for a spot on Long Island called …… BABYLON!!!  That is right. The city of Babylon, New York features a tall water tower that ship captains use to navigate directly into the harbor channel. They come within view of Babylon before turning west to head into the ports of New York City. It is from this vantage point that I believe Revelation 18:17-19 takes place.  From this vantage point……on the deck of a ship……one could quite easily read the letters of the name Babylon on the city water tower!!! Talk about literal?? Now that is indeed literal.  Its chief city…… a seaport named NYC/Babylon.

Apparently, until recently, the Babylon water tower was the first landmark viewable from the freighters making their way from Europe to the world’s busiest port, New York!  In order to understand why this is so profound, let us read Revelation 18:10, 15-19-

10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

15The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

 16And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

 17For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

 18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

 19And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

In the above verses we read, in graphic detail, of the reaction of sailors who are standing on the decks of the various ships which happen to be approaching New York Harbor on the very day of America’s demise.  Certainly, were the great city in flames, the sailors and merchants on the waters outside of Babylon would see it vividly.  This is precisely what John witnessed while caught up in the Spirit from the Isle of Patmos!

Here is another description of the Babylon water tower; this from author Peter Goodgame of www.redmoonrising.com

New York City is undoubtedly the most important port city in the world. What may not be known is that when a ship approaches the New York City harbor from the south, in order to properly conform with the shipping lanes it must aim due north straight for a municipality on Long Island named “Babylon.” A tall water tower on the shoreline is used as a reference point for navigation and when a ship reaches closest to shore before turning west to enter the harbor, the name “Babylon,” written on the tower in big bold letters can be easily read.

Now, obviously I was fascinated by this information, and set about trying to find a photo of this water tower, but to no avail.  I did discover, however, that sometime in the 1980’s the Babylon-area water towers were replaced or refurbished, and that instead of merely the Babylon water tower, ships began to also use the Fire Island lighthouse for navigation as well.  This does not detract whatsoever from the amazing prophetic clues about the ships and Babylon, as you will see by reading on!  For one thing, a portion of Fire Island itself is within the limits of the town of Babylon.  The stories and prophetic connections of both the town of Babylon, and of Fire Island itself, have got to be heard to be believed!  Also, although the Babylon water tower may no longer be marked “Welcome to Babylon”, it is still one of only two navigational landmarks for the incoming ship traffic.

For vehicular traffic, here are the directions to Babylon for those coming from New Jersey, courtesy of-

Here is a picture of the water tower as it appears today-

. . . Near Ocean Parkway, Babylon; this is an exceptionally tall tower, clearly a phallic obelisk or similar shape . . .

Part II; The origin of the name “Babylon” for this New York town:

There are two different stories as to how the town of “Babylon” (and, by extension, Babylon Village) got its name.  Both theories are quite remarkable and potentially prophetic in their connotation.  Anyway, here are the two theories.  First, from Wikipedia-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28town%29,_New_York

When a cherent community grew up in the area by 1803, prominent local citizens sought to adopt a new name. An influential local lady, Mrs. Conklin, was used to living inland in what is now considered Dix Hills and was at unease with the home site that her grandchildren would be raised in. The Bible-reading Mrs. Conklin compared the new hamlet to the biblical city of Babylon and proposed that name in apparent defiance of the area’s rather bawdy reputation as a stop-over place for travelers on Long Island’s south shore. Her son Nat was appalled by the use of an “unholy” name. The family legend states she replied: “But it will be a new Babylon.” The name stuck, despite some effort to change it.

I find that quite profound, and certainly fascinating.  Also, according to my research, the town was first called “New Babylon”, but later shortened to “Babylon”.  Here is an alternate view as to the origins of the town name “Babylon”, equally interesting, from author R.A. Coombes (in part)-

Babylon on Long Island derived its name because immigrant Jews founded it in 1872. The group’s rabbis chose the name almost prophetically, because they believed it would be home to a new diaspora.  Why would they think this? Because rabbinical opinions had held that ancient Babylon’s power would be moved.

Dr. Coombes goes on to discuss the connection to Zechariah 5 and Isaiah 18, wherein the spirit of Babylon goes forth to reside in a new country to the far reaches of the west.  He also reveals the spirit of Babylon is currently embodied by the Statue of Liberty, which represents the goddess Ishtar.  This prominent symbol, a gargantuan bronze idol, is one way in which we can so clearly recognize the end-times “Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots”.  A detailed summary of the Statue of Liberty and its connection to Ishtar is beyond the scope of this study, but I highly recommend Dr. Coombes’ 2-Volume set “America, The Babylon . . .” (see Bibliography), and for a brief summary please see my article on this blog-

http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2010/12/18/madonna-aka-%E2%80%9Cesther%E2%80%9D-a-type-of-the-harlot-of-babylon-documented-astounding-connections-to-mother-goddess-ishtar/

So, we have two distinct views of how Babylon, the town, got its name.  One view which is suggestive of a Christian origin, and the other of a Jewish influence.  Either one lends to a fascinating storyline.  Perhaps the truth is both?  For example, some type of agreement between the Christian founders of the town and the Jewish elders in the community?  What cannot be denied is that Babylon, New York has a very high concentration of Jews, even more so than the metropolitan area in general, and it is common knowledge that there are more Jews in the New York City metropolitan area than in any other city in the world, including cities in Israel.

Author Peter Goodgame also has these gems, which really cement this whole thesis!-

Clearly America is the home of Jewish exiles.

According to my research this community is the only inhabited and functioning community in the world that is known as “Babylon.”

The latter is an absolutely amazing statement; just imagine the ramifications!  In review, then, it is obvious that there are a great number of Jewish exiles living in Babylon (America that is, but represented by Babylon, New York as well).  And, the Lord warns both these Jewish exiles and the true believers within Babylon, for example in Zechariah 2:7-

Come, O Zion! Escape, you who live in the Daughter of Babylon!

and Psalm 137:8-

O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

and, finally, Revelation 18:4-

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Part III; Babylon, New York- a brief description of both the town and village:

First, I will discuss the town of Babylon itself.  Much of this information is derived from-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28town%29,_New_York

The Town, or Township, of Babylon is a jurisdiction in Suffolk County, New York (USA), located on Long Island. There is also a Village of Babylon located within the town. It borders Nassau County to the West, and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. Parts of Jones Beach Island, Captree Island and Fire Island are in the southernmost part of the town.  The villages of Babylon town are Amityville (to the southwest), Babylon (to the southeast), and Lindenhurst (to the south).  It is bordered on the south by the Atlantic Ocean.  The population is approximately 215,000, and it encompasses 114.2 square miles including water.

Some valuable tidbits can be gleaned from the Babylon Industrial Development Agency (Babylon IDA) at-

http://www.babylonida.org/

Such as-

Babylon is known as “the heart of it all”.

Babylon has become the economic heartbeat of Long Island.

At the Babylon IDA . . . our business is business.

In other words, the town of Babylon plays an essential role, and is located in a strategic place.  The focus on “business” is also clearly reminiscent of what we know of the country “Babylon” from Revelation, as supported by many verses in Isaiah and Jeremiah as well.

The village of Babylon, the southeast portion of Babylon town, is also discussed.  Much of this information is taken from-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28village%29%2C_New_York

Babylon is a village in Suffolk County, New York.  The population was 12,615 at the 2000 census, and although it is officially referred to as “The Incorporated Village of Babylon”, it is more commonly referred to simply as “Babylon Village”.  Here is a map showing the general location on Long Island; the tip of Fire Island is visible to the southeast.

. . . note that Babylon is bordered by “North Babylon” as well . . .

From author R.A. Coombes, we get more important information-

Babylon Township has a population of 203,000 people, with 12,000 living in the city of Babylon itself and 42,000 living in West Babylon.  Associated with the city is the Babylon Beach area with a broad look at the Harbor entrance to New York.

As this is central to the thesis of this article, here is yet another quote-

Babylon soon came to be considered the primary gateway to Fire Island, which is a thin barrier strand off of Long Island, and is therefore an essential marker for incoming ship traffic.

Babylon Village has a long history of the luxury lifestyle, and its location allowed for very pleasant “summering on the ocean”, all within easy range of Manhattan. This led many affluent individuals and families to reside at Babylon’s seaside resorts, both on Long Island and the smaller barrier strand beaches such as Fire Island.

Babylon village has 12 churches and a large, thriving synagogue http://www.congregationbethsholom.com/

Families, individuals, and interfaith couples are all welcome at Congregation Beth Sholom, located in the heart of the Village of Babylon.

Babylon today is part suburban bedroom community, part small-town, and has a substantial shopping and business district. Today the village is best known for its restaurants and shops, and hosts shopping events during the fall as well as a popular crafts fair.  It also has an historic downtown, as most of the core of Babylon dates to the era from before the Civil War to World War I.  Some consider Babylon to be a picturesque fishing village.  Here is a picture of Babylon harbor-

Babylon Village is only 33 Nautical miles from the Statue of Liberty, 39 Nautical miles from the middle of New York Harbor, and 6 Nautical miles from the Fire Island Lighthouse, a most important structure will be discussed in a forthcoming section of this article.

In the October 28, 2010 edition of “New York Online”, a section of the New York Times, there is an article by J. David Goodman entitled:

Babylon on Hudson? 

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/28/babylon-on-hudson/

This short article is an interesting read, and the author does seem to be serious with his question which is, essentially, “Is New York City Babylon?”  The question is based on the analysis presented within a You Tube video which he links to.  The author goes on to list 5 reasons that New York City might be the end-times Babylon; these essentially being corruption, sensual delights, similarities between leaders, abundance of towers, and creepy men.  He then concludes his analysis with an answer of “maybe” to the question.

He next poses this question to his readers- “So, jury of our peers, are we Babylon?”  I found this comment by “George” to be quite enlightening-

Geez — and here I always thought that Babylon was a town out there on Long Island…..

Precisely!  Starting to make the connection!

Part IV; An historic, horrific event in Babylon town:

When I first started researching the town and village of Babylon, I saw this headline in the initial website I linked to:

POLICE CLOSING PARKWAY MONDAY FOR BODIES INVESTIGATION

Although, sadly, this is not unique to Babylon, New York, it is certainly reflective of the headlines throughout Babylon, America on any given day, is it not?  The article goes on to state-

This marks the first time search efforts have expanded north of the barrier beach area and beyond Ocean Parkway since the discovery of 10 bodies in the Gilgo and Jones Beach areas in the past four months.

In the past several weeks both Suffolk and Nassau police have conducted intense aerial and water searches along Ocean Parkway, from Robert Moses Causeway to the Jones Beach water tower, looking for evidence and human remains.

It’s been 140 days since a Suffolk County police canine team discovered the first female remains on December 11, 2010.   Two days later three more sets of remains were found. All four were identified as young white women who worked as escorts. One was a North Babylon woman last seen in September 2010.

Between March 31 and April 4 Suffolk Police found four more sets of remains.  On April 11 Nassau Police discovered two more sets, bringing the body count to 10.

This was an extremely disturbing story to really take in and dwell on.  It truly grieves me so.  Yet, is it surprising?  Tragically, “no”.  News such as this is so common these days, and that speaks volumes about what kind of society end-times Babylon has become.

As discussed above, the town of Babylon is made up of three villages.  One of these is Amityville.  That name was recognizable to me, even though I’ve never been a fan of horror movies . . . as a sidenote, I have always shunned horror films, for to glorify such violence and the demonic is absolutely and grotesquely wrong, and frankly I abhor the American obsession with this most distasteful “art” form.  But, back to the discussion now, the name of the film was “The Amityville Horror”, and it is based on events that supposedly followed this horrific mass murder, which is summarized below (the film plot itself is quite suspect, but the murders were real and shocking).  Here is a short treatise of the actual event-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amityville_Horror_%282005_film%29

On November 13, 1974, police discovered six members of the DeFeo family — father, mother and four of their five children — shot and killed execution style at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville Village, Babylon, New York.  The four children were aged 9, 12, 13, and 18.  The perpetrator was the surviving child, and the oldest, 23 year old Ronald Joseph ‘Butch’ DeFeo, Jr.

Remember Ocean Parkway from the “today’s headlines” in the above section, about the 10 bodies?  This horrific murder occurred on Ocean Avenue, mere blocks away!

The “Amityville Horror House”, in Babylon, New York, is widely considered the most famous haunted house in history.  Below is a picture of this house taken the morning of the gruesome murders-

Not surprisingly, really, Ronald DeFeo claims that he was “possessed”.  Here is the killer’s short confession to the cold-blooded murder of his entire family; his parents, sisters Dawn and Allison, and brothers Mark and John Matthew-

It all started so fast. Once I started, I just couldn’t stop. It went so fast.

Not surprisingly, he had been drunk and high on heroin, possibly even LSD, on the early morning of the killings.  Drugs such as heroin and LSD represent, in part, what is termed in Greek “Pharmakeia” (sorceries; drugs of all types), and we see that Pharmakeia (Strong’s G-5331) is a trademark of end-times Babylon, Revelation 18:23-

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

And in Hebrew “Kesheph” (Strong’s H-3785), as speaking of Babylon’s demise we read in Isaiah 47:9-

But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

Babylon’s demise is clearly linked, in significant part, to her addiction to “sorceries”, which includes by definition drugs both legal (prescription) and illegal.  Further, the Bible calls these drugs and their spiritual effects “witchcraft”.  Drugs are therefore considered “demonic”.  Was Ronald DeFeo possessed?  Well, not to deflect blame for the man’s actions in any way, but to a degree certainly he was, since he was under the influence of these substances and therefore of demonic spirits.

In a broader sense, “sorceries” also points the finger at the major pharmaceutical companies, over half of which are American-based, which do their best to keep the population of Babylon “drugged up” and therefore spiritually deceived.  [This is not a condemnation of anyone who takes prescription drugs out of medical necessity, including my own loved ones.  Please realize that I am speaking here in general terms]

Let me repeat that- America Babylon will be judged, in part, for her addiction to and propagation of drugs, both legal and illicit!  That is stated clearly in the Word of the Lord.

Part V; Fire Island- a most important lighthouse and a modern-day Sodom:

Keeping in mind that parts of Fire Island are under the jurisdiction of Babylon town, the Lighthouse has played a very prominent role (similar to that of the nearby Babylon water tower), as a navigational guide for ships coming into the world’s largest port, the Port of New York.  The Fire Island Lighthouse is located in Robert Moses State Park, which is part of the Fire Island National Seashore.

http://www.nps.gov/fiis/index.htm

But, how did this island come to be associated with “Fire”?  Well, there are four plausible explanations.  The first is that the color of the abundant poison ivy in the autumn is brilliant red, making the island appear as if it is on fire.  Secondly, generations ago whalers used to build fires on the island’s beach to render whale blubber into oil.  Next, it has been noted that centuries ago scheming pirates lit fires on the beach to lure ships ashore so they could pillage the valuable cargo.  The most likely explanation for the name “fire”, however, is that it is simply an Anglicized Dutch name.  The Dutch word for four is vier (pronounced “fear”), and an English map from 1798 labels four islands in the area as “Fier Islands.” It’s easy to see how the name Fire Island likely evolved from “Fier” Island.

It is my humble opinion that the naming of this island was not “chance”, and to my thinking God Himself is ultimately behind it, for indeed “fire” is the destiny for the entire nation of Babylon, and Fire Island plays a major role leading to the clear recognition of America as Babylon.

The original Fire Island Lighthouse was an 85-foot-tall octagonal stone tower, built on the southwest tip of the island, the purpose of which was to mark the entrance to Fire Island Inlet and the eastern entrance to New York’s lower bay.  In other words, as stated earlier it was hugely important for navigation into the world’s busiest port.  This lighthouse tower commenced operation on November 1, 1858, which is 28 years (almost to the day) before the neighboring Statue of Liberty took her place overlooking the Harbor and the nation.  A glance at the maps above and below reveal why the town of Babylon (including Fire Island) is of such great importance to navigation.

. . . note lighthouse on side nearest New York Harbor (which is slightly off image to left) . . .

According to the Annual Report of the Lighthouse Board, in 1894, Fire Island Lighthouse represents . . .-

. . . the most important light for transatlantic steamers bound for New York. It is generally the first one they make and from which they lay their course.

Yet, nearly a century later-

On December 31, 1973, the Fire Island Lighthouse was decommissioned; its role having been assumed by a flashing strobe light atop the water tower at the nearby park.

That would be the Babylon water tower marked “Welcome to Babylon”, which was in operation until sometime in the 1980s.

Fire Island lighthouse is federally-protected as part of the Fire Island National Seashore.  Here is a view of the lighthouse, as it still appears today-

Sadly, yet prophetically, Fire Island is also making its name as a modern-day Sodom.  With the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York state on July 24 of this year (act passed on June 24), gay and lesbian couples have apparently been flocking to Fire Island for their honeymoons, and often even for the nuptials themselves.  More on this later . . . but it is obvious that Fire Island has a long and storied history as a “gay playground”.  For example, from Wikipedia-

Long Island New York has long been a gay-friendly destination, with world-renowned resort areas including Fire Island, the Hamptons and Long Island Wine Country, among others.

Next, again from R.A. Coombes, from his book “America, The Babylon . . .” (remember, this was written in 1998, thirteen years ago)-

Fire Island, an area noted for being host to unbridled sexual hedonism in the open public and along its beaches in the summer time.

And, this from-

The people at Fire Island Limousine have been catering to the Gay and Lesbian community since 1980. Please consider us when planning your wedding or special event.

We are looking forward to serving you and your guests on your Wedding Day.  We would be happy to escort you in one of our beautiful and comfortable limousines.

Recently, however, things have apparently “really heated up” with the passage of gay/lesbian/transgendered marriage in New York, as we read from an article entitled:

Three More of New York City’s Gayest Places to Get Married-

http://www.jaunted.com/story/2011/7/25/17582/5698/travel/Three+More+of+New+York+City%27s+Gayest+Places+to+Get+Married

Okay so it’s not technically New York City, but Fire Island is part of New York State and therefore totally valid as a same-sex marriage location, provided you picked up your marriage license before heading out to this strip of island that runs along Long Island, separating the Hamptons from the wild ocean. Cars are not permitted on the majority of the land, which makes sense considering the whole place can be easily traversed by rental golf cart or vintage cruiser bicycle.

We kind of adore the idea of saying your vows at the Fire Island Lighthouse—ultimate phallic symbol as it is—plus the lighthouse-y romance, of course. Truly, Fire Island is the spot for a gay beach wedding. Think about it: sand in your toes, sunglasses on and the love of your life a moment away from saying “I do.” We do.

After a newly-engaged couple agrees on Fire Island as the lovely location for their wedding ceremony and honeymoon, a nice option for the soon-to-be newlywed gay or lesbian pair might be to stay in the ultra-romantic “Madison Pines” or, as it is known, simply “The Madison”-

http://www.themadisonfi.com/

The Madison, Fire Island is situated in the heart of the world’s most beautiful gay resort community . . . there’s nothing like The Madison for gays, lesbians, or anyone . . .

Wow, so even just “anyone” can stay in the Madison?  Even “straight” couples?  Parents with young children?  Apparently they don’t discriminate!  If that’s not convincing enough, there is more-

There’s no place in America like Fire Island, a barrier beach that’s 50 miles from Manhattan but a universe away.  The beaches are among the purest and most beautiful on earth.

The (Madison) Pines, located on the island’s east end, is an international destination.  Free in spirit yet impossibly stylish, it is both beach hideaway and fashion runway, a gay playground and a couple’s paradise.

The Pines sits at a pinnacle of gay culture:  Disco was born here; so was La Cage aux Folles, the musical.  Candidates for president trek here.  Novelists are inspired here.

Some spend their Fire Island weekends at the beach with a book.  Others live for the social scene, the beach parties and the nightly rituals of its legendary dance clubs.  No matter – there’s not a moment of the day that isn’t magical, or a vista that isn’t astonishingly beautiful.

Hopefully, I’ve made my point that Fire Island is essentially a modern-day Sodom.  If you read the Genesis 19 account on the destruction of the “cities of the plain” (Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim) it is clear that the residents of these cities were being judged by God for one major sin and one alone:  the practice of homosexuality.  This is obvious especially in Genesis 19:1-5-

1And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

 2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

 3And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

 4But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

 5And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

Also, we read in Genesis 13:13-

But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Here are other verses which prove what befell those cities, and this is a precursor to what will shortly befall end-times Babylon.  Fire Island, Babylon, New York, is truly a microcosm of Babylon, America.  Remember, the word “sodomite” is derived from the name of the ill-fated Biblical city which famously and tragically thumbed its collective nose at God Almighty.

As to what actually became of Sodom, Gomorrah and the two lesser-known cities?  We find the answer in Genesis 19:24-28-

24Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;

 25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

 26But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

 27And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:

 28And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

As to what will become of Babylon the Great, also known as end-times Babylon, also known as the United States of America?  We read of the manner of her end in Isaiah 13:19-

And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah

As well as Jeremiah 50:40-

As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.

And Revelation 18:8-

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

Now, let’s read Genesis 19:28 again-

And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

In comparison with Revelation 18:18-

And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

And Revelation 19:3-

And again they said, Alleluia. And her* smoke rose up for ever and ever.

[*her = the great whore/Babylon . . .]

Sisters and brothers, I am not making this up nor am I exaggerating.  This is God’s Word.  I am simply acting as a watchman and obeying his command to sound the trumpet!  America’s demise is very near, and her end will be by fire.  Mark my words . . . infinitely better yet, mark His Word!

Part VI; The proximity of Babylon to the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor:

It should be clear to the reader that the Statue of Liberty is a powerful and unique symbol of America.  It is internationally recognized as such; that is, not as a symbol of New York City, but of the entire nation known as “The United States of America”.  In this article, I have also attempted to compare the nearby town of Babylon, New York to the entire country of America.  It is clear to me that America is Babylon (Babylon the Great, end-times Babylon); therefore, a study of Babylon town and New York City should offer insights which then reflect upon the entire nation.  It is also common knowledge that the Port of New York (or New York Harbor) is considered the world’s most important.  Finally, the relationship of Fire Island, part of which is within the limits of the town of Babylon, with Babylon town and village, New York Harbor and, indirectly, even the Statue of Liberty has been documented in this article.  The figure below shows these four main locations and their relationships to one another:

Part VII; Legendary townsfolk- a man called “Satan” and a “freethought’ atheist woman:

Early on in this study, it came to my attention that there were two residents of Babylon town who stood head and shoulders above the others, in terms of fame, impact on the world, and symbolism.  These are Robert Moses and Thelma (“Butterfly”) McQueen.  One man and one woman.  I will discuss Mr. Moses first.

Robert Moses

Robert Moses was born in New Haven, Connecticut on December 18, 1888.  He was the son of German immigrants, both Jewish, although they were non-practicing Jews and he therefore was not raised in a religious household.  He had by all accounts a fairly normal upbringing, and was a successful student in college, obtaining degrees from Yale and Oxford.  During his long career, he became known as “the master builder”, for his legacy of urban highways and bridges lives on long after his death.  To say that he was a polarizing figure would be a vast understatement.

I read as much as I could on the man and, although it is often difficult through the fog of history to accurately pinpoint the truth of a matter, or the character of a person, I have concluded that Mr. Moses was, basically, an extremely selfish, egotistical man who was also a racist and a classist.  You see, while prayerfully studying his life, the Holy Spirit immediately “clued me in” to a comparison between Mr. Moses and a boss I had many years ago.  This boss, now wildly successful by worldly (especially Babylonian) standards, embodies all of those vile attributes I mentioned above, and more.

Basically, Mr. Moses was a villain, but he was a uniquely American villain.  I will include some quotes from Wikipedia and other sources which, I believe, reveal this man’s satanic nature.  Here is the Wikipedia link-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Moses

Robert Moses changed shorelines, built bridges, tunnels and roadways, and transformed neighborhoods forever. His decisions favoring highways over public transit helped create the modern suburbs of Long Island and influenced a generation of engineers, architects, and urban planners who spread his philosophies across the nation.  Never elected to public office, Moses was responsible for the creation and leadership of numerous public authorities which he could control without having to answer to the general public or to elected officials.

His works remain extremely controversial. His supporters believe he made the city viable for the 21st century by building an infrastructure that most people wanted and that has endured. His critics claim that he preferred automobiles to people, that he displaced hundreds of thousands of residents in New York City, uprooted traditional neighborhoods by building expressways through them, contributed to the ruin of the South Bronx and the amusement parks of Coney Island, caused the departure of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants Major League baseball teams, and precipitated the decline of public transport through disinvestment and neglect.

As the head of many public authorities, Moses’s title as chairman gave his entities the flexibility associated with private enterprise, along with the tax-exempt debt capacity associated with government agencies.

Moses’ image suffered a further blow in 1974 with the publication of The Power Broker, a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography by Robert A. Caro. Caro’s 1,200-page opus (edited from over 3,000 pages long) largely destroyed the remainder of Moses’s reputation; essayist Phillip Lopate writes that “Moses’s satanic reputation with the public can be traced, in the main, to…Caro’s magnificent biography.”  People had come to see Moses as a bully who disregarded public input, but until the publication of Caro’s book, they had not known that he had allowed his brother Paul to spend much of his life in poverty. Paul Moses, who was interviewed by Caro shortly before his death, claimed Robert had exerted undue influence on their mother to change their will in his favour shortly before her death. Caro notes that Paul was on bad terms with their mother over a long period and she may have changed the will of her own accord. Caro suggested that Robert’s subsequent treatment of Paul may have been legally justifiable but was morally questionable.

Immediately I was struck by his last name, “Moses”.  Of course, Robert Moses was also of Jewish ethnicity, whereas the Bible hero Moses is best known for leading his people out of slavery and eventually into the Promised Land (although Moses wasn’t to make it there himself).  The Hebrews did wander and languish in the wilderness for 40 years, due to their refusal to honor the True God, but their leader was Moses, a shepherd-type figure, obviously a great man of God, very unselfish, and a Prophet.

I am here suggesting that Robert Moses was a “type” of anti-Moses; in other words, all of the positive traits of the real Moses are embodied as negative traits within the life and person of Robert Moses.  I am especially intrigued that the career of Robert Moses was also 40 years long.  That makes the comparison between Robert Moses and Moses that much more fascinating!  My point is that Moses (being a “type” of Christ) led his people to the Promised Land; whereby Robert Moses being the antithesis of both Christ and Moses “led his people” (the American people) on a destructive path.  Both “paths” were forty years long.  The number forty, Biblically, references “a time of trial” (E.W. Bullinger).

Exodus 16:35-

And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

I find the following information very interesting considering these 40 years, so I’ll go ahead and attach a fairly long quote; the entire article is well written and very entertaining-

http://tcsidewalks.blogspot.com/2007/08/other-city-sidewalks-babylon-ny.html

The only thing I knew about Babylon NY, located about a third out on the South shore of Long Island, was that it had been the home of Robert Moses, scourge of American cities. If you don’t know who Robert Moses is, I urge you to put aside a month, sometime in the near future, and read The Power Broker, Robert Caro’s 1974 Pulitzer Prize winning biography of Moses. It’s a fantastic biography, combining drama and painstaking detail with the rarest of ease, and in it you learn the dangers of concentrated power as Caro tells the saga of Moses’s insane forty-year grip on New York infrastructure,building highways through neighborhoods and displacing hundreds of thousands of people, spearheading ‘the projects’, and singlehandedly yoking U.S. cities to the automobile for what will probably be an eternity. (On the other hand, the bridges he built haven’t fallen down yet.)

So, needless to say, when I got to Babylon NY, the town where Moses parked his subsidized yacht, I was most filled with biblical trepidation… trepidation and a desire to somehow unearth the visible scars of Moses’s mad genius. Would I find a Moses bust? Would it be the land of gated communities? Or hanging gardens? What I found, though, was a pastoral fishing village surrounded by well-manicured, sidewalk-free, and quite expensive real estate.

Despite its lamppost flower planters (hanging gardens?), its inlaid red brick trim, and the delicate arch of its maple trees that lend it a precious authenticity… despite all that, I didn’t’ find an urban spirit in Babylon NY. For one thing, the ‘downtown’ (or village center) is really sparsely populated.

I went on a long walk from the downtown to the Babylon harbor . . . The best I could do was the entirely benchless municipal pier, where I sat on the pavement with a book and stared out at the sea.  Would Moses were here, I’d kick him in the balls.

Well, that was colorful!

Here’s another one-

http://assholes-of-history.blogspot.com/2008/11/robert-moses.html

The author quotes Nicolai Ouroussof in his article “Complex, Contradictory Robert Moses” from the 2/2/2007 edition of the New York Times-

a villainous figure who, through his control of federal slum clearance and highway money, was able to trample tens of thousands of lives, uprooting entire neighborhoods in a quest to impose his megalomaniacal vision: a city of dehumanizing superblocks strangled in ribbons of expressways.

From Wikipedia again, a most important quote-

Moses was also in large part responsible for the United Nations’ decision to headquarter in Manhattan as opposed to Philadelphia.

This is fascinating!  So, we see that in part because of Robert Moses, Babylon the Great (the country) is most associated with New York City and the United Nations, for as we read in Revelation the city “Babylon” is that which the great men of the world both flock to and reside in, none other than New York City!  Revelation 18:23 (in part)-

. . . for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

And Revelation 17:18-

And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Robert Moses was absolutely a satanic man, and I was not surprised to find that he was indeed a resident of Babylon.

Thelma McQueen-

Sources for this section include-

http://www.answers.com/topic/butterfly-mcqueen and

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_McQueen

Thelma McQueen was born on either the 7th or 8th of January in the year 1911.  She was a movie actress best known for her role as “Prissy” in the classic 1939 film “Gone with the Wind”.  The name “Thelma” means “willful”; stubborn, if you will.  She was generally called “Butterfly”, however, which is a name she obtained early in her acting career while living in Babylon, New York.  Her last name, “McQueen” means either “son (or daughter) of the good man” or “daughter of a Queen”.  Here is a famous picture of Butterfly McQueen from her role as “Prissy” in “Gone with the Wind”-

She was originally from Florida, lived awhile in Georgia, and was raised by her mother, as her father apparently abandoned the family when she was but 5 years old.  Her family moved to Babylon, New York, during Thelma’s intermediate school years, and there they worked as servants for a wealthy white family.  Thelma went to school, and while trying to decide on an educational choice, took up and failed chemistry, started nursing school, and then embraced acting.  She became popular in the local drama scene, as far away as New York City, and it was at this time that her nickname “Butterfly” was coined.  Her new handle stuck.  She hit the big time with her role in “Gone with the Wind” and had other successful acting stints, as well, although understandably she did not enjoy being typecast.  Ms. McQueen never married and never bore children.

When I started this research, I knew nothing about Butterfly McQueen, only that her name seemed vaguely familiar, maybe.  I figured that her beliefs were probably typical of young black women back in her time, those born in the South at least, that is I imagined that she was most likely a Christian.  Imagine my shock when a search of images of her uncovered this almost immediately-

I dug a bit deeper and found out that she was an esteemed member of the nation’s most powerful organization for atheists and agnostics, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) of Madison, Wisconsin, having even received their “Freethought Heroine” award, albeit post-mortem.  Here is their website; if you feel compelled to view this spiritually dangerous material, please do so with discernment-

http://ffrf.org/

With this in mind, let me reveal some quotes which the FFRF have (proudly, I might add) attributed to Ms. McQueen; these based on an October 8, 1989 interview she gave to Gayle White, a reporter for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution-

As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion.

If we had put the energy on earth and on people that we put on mythology and on Jesus Christ, we wouldn’t have any hunger or homelessness.

Christianity and studying the Bible has sapped our minds so we don’t know anything else.

They say the streets are going to be beautiful in heaven. I’m trying to make the streets beautiful here . . .  When it’s clean and beautiful, I think America is heaven. And some people are hell.

Wow!  She certainly didn’t mince words, but how truly disappointing her views were, and apparently she carried them with her to her death on December 22, 1995.  So, based on the quotes above, she believed that the Bible is “mythology”, reading the Bible makes a person stupid, and to be a Christian is to be a slave.  She was, indeed, a most devoted atheist.  She even willed a good portion of her money to her beloved FFRF.

Butterfly McQueen died in a fire.  Not of smoke inhalation; rather, she burned to death!  Her death was simply horrific, and I will recount the basic details here, in my own words (sources listed above).

Around dinner time that Friday, Ms. McQueen attempted to light a kerosene burner or heater, when it exploded, catching her clothes on fire.  She ran screaming from her house to the carport, engulfed by flames, and suffered second- and third-degree burns over 70% of her body.  Quickly, neighbors and Boy Scouts converged on the scene.  The Boy Scout who was right by her side was named James Pride.  Here is Mr. Pride’s eye-witness account, courtesy of-  http://m.independentmail.com/news/2011/apr/17/butterfly-mcqueen-lives-through-project/

We were working with the food bank to deliver food right before Christmas.  We stopped because of the fire.  She was there (in the carport) crying out for help.  The assistant leader told her to get on the rug, and we all took sides of the rug and we pulled her on the rug out of the flames because the flames were engulfing the carport, too.  She was very burned, but she was saying ‘thank-you’ the whole time.  That’s all she said.  She might have said it close to 50 times.  I was there basically telling her, ‘Jesus loves you.’  And I kept saying that.  We didn’t know who she was.  We had no idea this was somebody of notoriety.  I feel like I’ve had a connection with her since then.  I just feel like she might be praying for me or something, looking out for me.  I think of her sometimes.

Only the blackened floor and roof of her small wooden cottage, a part of her larger stucco house, remained standing.  The fire department arrived on the scene as young Mr. Pride was testifying to the elderly, dying Ms. McQueen about the love of Jesus.  She was still conscious.  She was taken to Augusta Regional Medical Center, where she was soon pronounced dead.  Some sources say that she lived 10 hours after the fire, others suggest that she perished within the hour.  Regardless, we know that she did not live to see the following day, which brought to mind Isaiah 17:14-

And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he* is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

[*Other translations use “she” or “they”]

Yes, I consider Ms. McQueen to be a “type” of America, a “type” of Babylon.  I believe that her death is prophetic, and through the circumstances of her own demise we can foresee the vivid imagery of America’s own future ruin.

It stands to reason that since “Babylon the Great” and the “Harlot” are essentially one and the same, Butterfly McQueen is undoubtedly also a “type” of America’s goddess, Ishtar, as famously represented by the Statue of Liberty.  Why do I say this?  Well, where do I start with all the connections?!  First, as stated previously “McQueen” means “daughter of a Queen”.

Speaking of America Babylon, God has this to say in Revelation 18:7-

How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

And, in the New American Standard version, this is Isaiah 47:5-7-

5Sit silently, and go into darkness,
O daughter of the Chaldeans,
For you will no longer be called
The queen of kingdoms
.

6“I was angry with My people,
I profaned My heritage
And gave them into your hand.
You did not show mercy to them,
On the aged you made your yoke very heavy.

7“Yet you said, ‘I will be a queen forever.
These things you did not consider
Nor remember the outcome of them.

But, alas, this is instead her fate, Revelation 18:8-

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

I think the connection here is crystal clear.

Author R.A. Coombes has convincingly demonstrated that the Statue of Liberty depicts the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, known by many other names including “Mother Goddess”.  I have also discussed this at some length in my aforementioned article on this blog (link above).

Dr. Coombes goes on to state, concerning America’s goddess Ishtar, a fallen angel-

Ishtar was never a physical ‘mother’… but rather a ‘madam’ over the priestesses. Ishtar was never married and never had a child…but she was called “mother” of the temple priestesses. Kind of like a “house mother.”

It is also clearly prophetic that Ms. McQueen was an avowed atheist.  Do atheists truly not believe in God?  Many of them actually do believe in a higher being, but choose to proudly ignore Him (which is actually more satanic than atheist, per se).  Isn’t it amazing that the young man who told Ms. McQueen all about the love of Jesus, while she lay dying, was named James Pride?  What is the connection?  To me, it is simply yet profoundly this-

Pride couldn’t save her, only Jesus could.

If she had only accepted Him into her life.  Perhaps she did, while being comforted by the young Boy Scout, perhaps she did ask Jesus into her heart.  I pray so.

Furthermore, Ms. McQueen died within the hour, a “type” of America Babylon’s near-future demise, for which we read, Revelation 18:19-

And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Thelma “Butterfly” McQueen is best known, internationally in fact, for her role in the epic film “Gone with the Wind”. From-

http://www.answers.com/topic/butterfly-mcqueen#ixzz1TikhxqQx

In a famous scene she accompanies Rhett Butler, Melanie, and the newborn baby on the journey from Atlanta, and cowers on the floor of the wagon, occasionally popping her head up to scream hysterically at the sight of the burning city.

I find it not only striking that “Gone with the Wind” has to do with destruction by fire, but even more shocking that this fire comes from the “north”, by manner of the Union forces.  Here is a quote from Union General William T. Sherman, who ordered the burning of Atlanta-

. . . we rode out of Atlanta by the Decatur road . . . we naturally paused to look back upon the scenes of our past battles . . . behind us lay Atlanta, smouldering and in ruins, the black smoke rising high in air, and hanging like a pall over the ruined city.

This destruction from the north is a true foreshadowing of what will happen to America as a whole on a day in the very near future.  “Gone with the Wind”?  Indeed, for the Lord comes as a “whirlwind out of the North” to judge this country, this end-times Babylon, this America.  As we read in Jeremiah 51:48-

Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD.

Tragically, one of America’s most famous, beloved, and successful movies, “Gone with the Wind” is a suitable title for America’s approaching day of destruction, as America is “reaping the whirlwind” of God’s judgment, as we read in Hosea 8:7-

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.

Part VIII; What America can expect soon:

This study represents a portion of the fruits of my pursuing the specific and unique watchman calling which God has placed upon me, which is to use the gifts He has given me to alert the American populace that their (our) nation is Babylon the Great i.e. end-times Babylon.  I do so unashamedly, and with the knowledge that the vast majority of the readers will ignore this call.  These readers will include large numbers of both non-believers and Christians.  Yet, this is all about saving a few souls from the fires of Hell and giving others a “heads up” on the Biblical truth that America is Babylon, so as they might prepare accordingly.  I am simply a man who is obeying God and trusting in Him!

What can America expect?  What will ultimately become of her?  Her complete and utter destruction is fast-approaching.  This judgment will be by fire; perhaps a heavenly fire or, more likely (I believe), a nuclear firestorm.  This event will kill tens of millions of people instantly, hundreds of millions within months, and leave perhaps 10% of the population as survivors.  To understand what is coming, you should read the referenced books by R.A. Coombes, John Price, and A.P. Watchman which are, in order, “America, the Babylon . . .”, “The End of America . . .”, and “Reaping the Whirlwind . . .”.  You could also visit the “wakeupbabylon” blogsite, as its author is currently performing unique and impressive Biblical research on this very topic, including details regarding the fate of the few survivors of this judgment on Babylon.

Most importantly, you must ask God what you are to do personally; in addition, you must fully repent, seek His face, and learn to recognize His voice.

Will there be a Rapture before this earth-shattering event, which I believe kicks off the final 3.5 years?  I do not know; perhaps, God will do as He wills.  However, I am more inclined to believe that there will be a supernatural protection of the True Saints, however not of the deceived members of the Laodicean Church which is prevalent in America, but of His actual followers.  We see a Biblical precedent for protection from the fire in Daniel 3 (the three young men in the furnace), Genesis 19 (Lot’s family during the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah), and Joshua 6 (Rahab’s family during the fall of Jericho).

Remember- Babylon, New York represents New York City.  New York City, in turn, is essentially the capital “Babylon” and represents the heart of the nation Babylon.  The nation Babylon is none other than the United States of America, and she will burn in fire.  The Day of Judgment, of the Lord’s Wrath, is soon, very soon, just mere years away.  For more on the urgency of this matter, and compelling evidence, please eagerly await my next article on this topic which will be entitled:

America’s Destiny Revealed within Her Landscape, Part II . . .

Go with God, sisters and brothers, and please alert your loved ones and your sleeping church to the Truth that America’s demise is “at the door”.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.  Isaiah 41:10

Update 28 August, 2011-

I find it most interesting that Hurricane Irene’s (a borderline Hurricane/Tropical Storm during New York landfall) “eye” (which was poorly defined) or, better, “center of circulation”, encompassed both Manhattan on its West and Babylon on its East; yes, that is correct . . . Babylon, being in the upper right quadrant of the “eyewall” should have, theoretically, experienced the highest winds of any New York location.

Great information on the storm here, as it was experienced in Babylon-

http://babylonvillage.patch.com/

So, this storm is an obvious message from God Almighty; there is no way that a storm can travel thousands of miles across the Atlantic and Caribbean and just “happen” to center on both Manhattan and Babylon with pinpoint accuracy.  Indeed not!  Rather, this is a warning!  Repent now, for His judgment is close at hand!  This storm has profoundly and divinely confirmed the contents of this article in their entirety, not to mention this is a confirmation as well of my prophetic calling.  Message- Babylon (and NYC) is America and America is Babylon . . .

Acknowledgments:

First and foremost, I thank our Father in Heaven for revealing His sacred secrets to those who truly seek Him.  Thanks also to the handful of friends I have left; you guys mean so much to me and you are always in my prayers.  To my sis, I pray daily that you will break the cycle of addiction, for with the addiction tragically comes deception.  Thanks to Dr. Richard Coombes for the second most important book I’ve ever read; it changed my life, blessings to you always.

Sister Pamela has shared a fascinating first-hand account; I quote her below (bold emphasis C.M.)-

Last Pasach (2013) I was privileged to visit the new upgraded Temple Institute in the Old City of Jerusalem with its stunning display of Temple artifacts, vessels, robes etc all prepared in the prescribed biblical manner.  The High Priest exhibit with his robes, turban, breastplate etc. were very authentic and the young Israeli IDF guide told us about the dye used from the Murex Trunculus.  It was that deep midnight blue that you quoted.  This is the gem for me . . . It was a very powerful and moving experience to see all this in the Temple Institute!

Breaking news here-

My Note- “Turquoise” is likely not an appropriate translation; as I show below “the color of the sky at midnight” i.e. “deep midnight blue” is closer to the true sacred color . . .

————————————————————————————————————

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:”  Revelation 17:4

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”  Revelation 17:5

And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!”  Revelation 18:16

Clearly, the woman = the city (better, the nation).  But, what colors is she wearing?

——————————————————————————–

Background:

Ever since coming to the sobering conclusion that America is indeed Babylon the Great, I have suspected that the “woman” or the “great city” which John describes is clothed in red (scarlet), white (linen), and blue (purple); however, it wasn’t until I read Kristie Johnson’s book “Mystery Babylon the Great, Defender of Israel:  A Search for America in Bible Prophecy” that I understood precisely how the apparent discrepancy between the colors purple and blue can easily be remedied (keeping in mind that purple is essentially blue with a red component).

The Holy Spirit only recently brought me back to this topic; this happened shortly after I had read the wonderful article on Babylon by sister Cindy of “Cindy By the Sea” and an article about a rare blue lobster by the talented JRed at “Look Up Fellowship”.  So, thanks for the inspiration, you two!  Here are their respective articles-

http://cindybythesea.wordpress.com/2011/06/05/the-spirit-of-america-the-spirit-of-babylon/

http://www.lookupfellowship.com/2011/06/something-borrowed-something-blue.html

It will help immensely to understand my current article if you have already resolved that there is no such entity as “Mystery Babylon” or “Mystery Babylon the Great”.  The word “mystery” or the Greek “musterion,” is simply descriptive; it is not part of a title!  The identity of end times Babylon has long been a “mystery” or, better, a “sacred secret”, yet is now being revealed, in these last days to represent The United States of America.  This portion of Revelation 17:5 (shown in its entirety above) is better written, “A mystery; Babylon the Great”, as it is in certain translations.  The “semicolon” and the lack of capitalization of “mystery” make all the difference.  Here is an article I wrote which demonstrates this point-

http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2010/10/20/mystery-babylon-revealed/

As I stated earlier, Kristie Johnson was onto something extremely significant during her research for the thought-provoking book she published in 2004.  I will attempt to take this portion of her work much further.  Here is a quote by Ms. Johnson which hints at the direction in which this current article is headed-

If one researches how purple is different from blue, that is where you learn something very interesting.  Not only is the word blue used very seldom in the Bible, but it is never found in the New Testament at all!

This is true.  Actually, the word “blue” is found 49 times in the Hebrew of the Old Testament and not at all in the Greek of the New Testament.  Here is the proof-

http://www.biblewheel.com/gr/GR_Database.asp?SearchBy_Word=blue

The reason is this.  Both blue and purple were very important colors in Bible days, Old and New Testament alike.  Blue and purple dyes were used for priestly garments and other official attire.  Yet, the origin of these colors is the very same dye!  This dye was derived from a mussel shellfish, a gastropod mollusk.  We get our first information about this from first studying the word “blue” in Hebrew, and then by looking at the word “purple” in both Greek and Hebrew-

http://www.biblewheel.com/gr/strongs.asp?Strongs=H8504

Strong’s Number H8504 (for “blue”)-

תכלת tekeleth {tek-ay’-leth} probably for 07827; TWOT – 2510; n f AV – blue 50; 50 1) violet, violet stuff 1a) violet thread 1b) violet stuff or fabric 2) (TWOT) blue (covering spectrum from brilliant red through deep purple)

http://www.biblewheel.com/gr/strongs.asp?Strongs=G4210

πορφυρους porphurous {por-foo-rooce’} from 4209;; adj AV – purple 3; 3 1) purple, dyed in purple, made of purple fabric

Finally, to be thorough, let’s look at the word “purple” in Hebrew-

http://www.biblewheel.com/gr/strongs.asp?Strongs=H0713

Strong’s Number H0713-

ארגמן ‘argaman {ar-gaw-mawn’} of foreign origin; TWOT – 157b; n m AV – purple 38; 38 1) purple, red-purple

So, back in the days of the Old Testament, “purple” meant purple or red-purple, and “blue” meant anything from red, through purple, through blue.  Interesting!  Please keep this in mind as we proceed.

Therefore, we have, most importantly, discovered that the Hebrew word for blue, tekeleth, can indicate blue, brilliant red, deep purple, or anything in-between!  The Greek word for purple seems to mean only “purple”, but let’s research both a bit further, after asking ourselves “why would there not be a Greek word used for ‘blue’” in the days that the New Testament was written?”  The answer is found here, and I will expound upon this in a later section; but for now, again, both “blue” and “purple” dyes, in Old as well as New Testament days, were derived from the same shellfish species!  Even the Hebrew word for “blue”, which is “tekeleth”, has an etymological derivation specifically from this shellfish!  This is another, more thorough, definition of Strong’s H8504, from-

http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H8504&t=KJV

Fascinating, indeed, in that the shellfish is best known for “purple” dye, but the word itself means “blue”!  Elsewhere, we read that this particular mussel itself is frequently called the “Cerulean” mussel, the color of which is described as either violet or blue.

Elsewhere, from-

Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible

. . . in which the discussion is about the “Biblical Blue” of Old Testament days-

Blue – תכלת techeleth, generally supposed to mean an azure or sky color; rendered by the Septuagint ὑακινθον, and by the Vulgate hyacinthum, a sky-blue or deep violet.

You will notice, if you read each of the 49 Old Testament verses which include the word “blue”, that “purple” is frequently also featured in the very same verse.  Here is one particular verse which seems to indicate that these two colors have the same origin, which they physically do have, as I will demonstrate later.  But for now, look at this powerful Biblical evidence; Ezekiel 27:7-

Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was that which covered thee.

Next, let’s get a bit scientific or, actually, quite scientific (bear with me, as I’m a scientist myself, and I believe this to be essential information) . . .

——————————————————————————

A mussel shellfish, and a range of dye colors:

Here is a definition of purple as used in the Bible, from-

http://www.christiananswers.net/dictionary/color.html

“Purple, a color obtained from the secretion of a species of shell-fish (the Murex trunculus) which was found in the Mediterranean, and particularly on the coasts of Phoenicia and Asia Minor. The coloring matter in each separate shell-fish amounted to only a single drop, and hence the great value of this dye.”

We have now been introduced to the main mussel species from which the dye for both purple and blue dye is derived; Murex trunculus.

A scientific article, by Deborah Ruscillo, which is entitled “Reconstructing Murex Royal Purple and Biblical Blue in the Aegean”, is of the utmost importance, and I owe her a huge debt of gratitude.  Some of her findings, especially those pertinent to this article, are included below.

In describing the use of the Murex snail in dyes, notably blue and purple-

In antiquity, a variety of colors, not just one, was made from Murex, the most lavish of which were dark and vibrant.

In discussing other, much less impressive, types of dyes not related to mussels, Dr. Ruscillo compares-

In the Aegean, the most prized purple came from sea snails, especially Murex.

Here she describes that there are actually three related species which produce this spectrum of colors we are discussing-

There are two main species of Murex that produce dye, Murex trunculus and Murex brandaris. A similar-looking species, Thais haemastoma, also produces dye. Thais species and perhaps Murex brandaris produces more of a crimson or wine color in textiles, while Murex trunculus is known to produce shades of purple. In the Aegean, by far, Murex species have been recovered in the greatest quantity from archaeological contexts suggestive of dye manufacturing industry. From the Early Bronze Age to the later Roman period, Murex remains have been excavated in middens around the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean. The archaeological record consists of crushed or broken Murex shells either with holes in the shell body or crushed into pieces and in some cases pottery sherds with purple dye residues…

Dyeing of cloth, especially wool (which readily accepted the dye and achieved the desired hue much better than other fabrics), was a major business in Bible times.  What Dr. Ruscillo was attempting to do, in her study, was to “re-create” the methodology used in the ancient days for collecting the snail specimens and extracting the dye.  Here are two other quotes-

By producing Royal Purple ourselves, we could establish a methodology for studying and interpreting archaeological Murex remains. We could calculate how much dye was produced from a sample and attempt to distinguish between Murex used for food and bait from those used for dye extraction.

The hypobranchial gland is the ‘dye producing’ gland in Murex; its function is to produce mucus to the mantle cavity of the creature. By separating the organs, the mucus oxidized and the gland producing the dye turned bright purple.

In order to accomplish these objectives, Dr. Ruscillo and her partner set up the experiment in a manner whereby different “batches” of this dye extraction from these snails were produced.  These batches all differed somewhat in how they were handled and processed.  Remember that, to this point (which includes Batches 1-5), they were getting mostly “purple” dye.  However, in Batch 6 the results change, even though in all of their experiments they are utilizing the same type of snail-

The colours produced by Batch 6 were a complete surprise. These were the swatches immersed immediately after gland extraction in the unsteeped mixture of Murex glands and mucus with sea water, and left in the unheated concoction for only 10 minutes, and then hung to dry. I watched as the white, slimy swatches dried to beautiful blue hues. This experiment had recreated the ‘Biblical Blue’ or tekhelet, as it is known, sacred in antiquity as well as the present, particularly in the Jewish religion. It is known that this sacred blue was produced from marine snails. Each batch was prepared a different way, and with different additives and mordants.

There you have it!  Same input snails, yet significantly different output colors!

This is what accounted for the difference in results within this particular experiment-

Batch 6 used sea water alone but was not steeped and heated like the other batches swatches were immersed in the concoction immediately after dye extraction. In each case, save for Batch 6, the mixture was heated to 80 degrees Celsius after three days of steeping, and sieved to remove the soft tissue from the liquid.

And an important result-

There has been a resurgence of tekhelet manufacture in Israel using marine snails, outlined by Rabbi Herzog in the 1800’s (Spanier 1987), and produced today by the Tekhelet Foundation in Jerusalem. Tekhelet means light blue in Hebrew*; this experiment produced a light baby blue to a deep navy blue, all quite attractive.

Here are two of her conclusions, which are essential to the thesis of this article-

Many shades of blue and violet can be produced from Murex trunculus

and

Biblical Blue can be made from Murex species as well as Royal Purple

It is obvious that blue and purple are closely related colors, derived in these Biblical cases from the same dye, and that “blue” was not specifically mentioned in the New Testament in part perhaps because of this overlap of the colors (more on this later)!

Dr. Ruscillo goes on to state that the processing is essential to obtaining of certain colors; for example, the purple color is ruined by boiling, but steeping for 3 days will allow a deep vibrant purple to be produced.

Here is a very nice article which describes how this Biblical blue color is now actively sought after in Israel-

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/28/world/middleeast/28blue.html?_r=2

And a quote from this article-

One of the mysteries that scholars have puzzled over for centuries is the exact shade of blue represented by “tekhelet”.  Though scientists and scholars are still debating the exact shade of the ritual blue, the dye used is modeled after a 2,000-year-old textile, and is produced from sea snails found in Israeli water.

From what I can gather by reading this article, the following is a photo of the precise piece of textile which was recently discovered-

Now, note this interesting “congruence of factors” in the quote below from this same article-

What was known about tekhelet (pronounced t-CHELL-et) was that the Talmud said it was produced from the secretion of the sea snail, which is still found on Israeli beaches.  Traditional interpretations have characterized tekhelet as a pure blue, symbolic of the heavens so that Jews would remember God. Not so, according to an Israeli scholar (Zvi C. Koren) who has a new analysis: tekhelet appears to have been closer to a bluish purple.

The piece of fabric shown above was analyzed by Dr. Koren, who was the first researcher to make the connection between the fabric and the snail dye.  Here is another quote-

He found that the dye used in the Masada sample, a piece of bluish-purple yarn embroidery, came from a breed of Murex trunculus snail familiar to modern Israelis. Such shades on textiles are rare finds since they were typically worn exclusively by royalty or nobility.

According to Daniella E. Bar-Yosef Mayer, an archaeologist from the University of Haifa who specializes in mollusk shells, in referring to Dr. Koren’s discoveries, states-

It’s especially exciting for religious Jews who place great importance on this color.

So, what color is Tekhelet?  According to Dr. Koren, from his laboratory-

Tekhelet is the color of the sky.  It’s not the color of the sky as we know it; it’s the color of sky at midnight.

Bluish purple, then?  Profound, I would say!

Mr. Baruch Sterman, a F’til Tekhelet founder, had this to say about the new findings-

Probably in ancient times, what was most important to the Jews was that the color is a beautiful color and it comes from the snail. The minor distinction — sky blue, turquoise, lapis or purple blue — were probably not of significance to them.

I am not sure if this is true; in fact, I suspect that it is not.  In the Bible, God lays out very precise conditions for colors, measurements, and the like.  However, Mr. Sterman does confirm that this range of colors, essentially blue to purple, is derived from this very special snail and that there is certainly a variation in what specific hue is obtained from batch to batch.

So, what specifically can cause color variations in the “end product”, the dyed wool garment?  Exposure to sun is one major factor.  According to-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexaplex_trunculus#As_dye_in_Judaism

If the raw dye is left in the sun for a few minutes, then the resulting color is more of an indigo blue than the “desired” purple or purple-blue.

So, we see that fast drying creates blue, and slow drying creates purple, from the same dye!  Here is another important quote from this article-

The ancient method for mass-producing purple-blue dye from Hexaplex trunculus has not yet been successfully reproduced (because the purplish hue degrades too quickly, resulting in blue only). Nonetheless the use of this species in dyeing “purple-blue” has been confirmed in the archeology of Phoenicia.

And, according to the Ptil Tekehlet Organization-

The Hebrew Bible mentions a specific blue dye, called Tekhelet (תְּכֵלֶת) for use in the Priestly garments as well in the layman’s tzitzit, the formal tassels or fringes of clothing, which some believe refers to the indigo dye from the Hexaplex trunculus when kept in the sun.  Similarly, the Hebrew Bible also mentions a specific purple dye, called argaman (אַרְגָּמָן‎), which refers to the purple color this same dye produces when kept in the shade.

So, here is a bit of the science behind this phenomenon-

Research by Otto Elsner (Shenker College of Fibers, Ramat Gan, Israel) and Ehud Spaneir (University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel) showed that by performing what is commonly referred to as “vat dyeing” based on the dyestuff from the trunculus, they could achieve colors varying from blue to purple depending on exposure to the sun when the dye solution was in its leuco (reduced) state. This phenomenon was attributed to the dyestuff being composed of indigo, mono-bromo-indigo and di-bromo-indigo.  DiBromo-Indigo presents itself as purple whereas Indigo is blue. It was demonstrated that when the reduced solution of trunculus dye is exposed to sunlight, the UV-rays from the sun act to break the bromine bonds such that when oxidation occurs following the removal of the dyed fabric from the solution, pure indigo bonds to the wool, while the bromine atoms are left in the vat.

Indigo blue, which is chemically very similar to Tyrian purple, therefore behaves similarly.

Bingo!  Well, there we have it; this is the same dye and the achieved color hues are simply gradational!

Not surprisingly, the ancients were aware of this effect.  Both Aristotle and Pliny the Elder wrote of this at some length.  In addition, Vitruvius had this to say, circa 25 BC-

Purple exceeds all colors in costliness and superiority of its delightful effect. It is obtained from a marine shellfish. It has not the same shade in all the places where it is found, but is naturally qualified by the course of the sun.

More from Wikipedia-

Tyrian purple is a dull purple dye that is secreted by a common Mediterranean Sea snail. It was highly prized in antiquity. In 1909 its structure was shown to be 6,6′-dibromoindigo. It has never been produced on a commercial basis. The relatedCiba blue (5,7,5′,7′-tetrabromoindigo) is, however, of commercial value.

Also from Wikipedia, the image below.  The caption is “Cuneiform tablet, dated 600-500BC, with instructions for dyeing wool purple and blue

I so wish that I could read this tablet!  Yet, what is obvious is that these two colors are intimately related.

A Quick Summary:

To summarize, then, starting with the same shellfish, we can get purple by:

Non-immediate immersion in sea water, heating of batch initially to steep, keeping in the shade, or drying slowly . . .

Or we can get blue by:

Immediate immersion in sea water, not heating batch initially, exposure to the sun, or rapid drying . . .

To end this section, let’s look at a picture which is a composite of different shades of “BLUE”.  I found this in the aforementioned article by JRed, but have been unable to locate the image source.  Keep this image in mind as we move to the next section in this article.

——————————————————————————

The actual colors worn and adorned by the Harlot:

The following article is quite convincing, and the quote taken from it demonstrates that even if all the evidence of the shellfish dyes were discounted, that the Prophet John could still have been referring to the color blue, not purple, in the Revelation!  How much more profound seem his testimony and observations in light of the above information!

Speaking of the Prophet John; from-

http://www.watchmanreport.com/the_watchman/tribulation/the_first_watchman_message.cfm

If the prophet of 90 AD was shown the colors of the United States, why then would he say that he saw purple instead of blue, scarlet instead of red?  Red and blue were legitimate fabric colors of his day.  Aside from the obvious, Yahweh using alternate colors to remove the obvious implications of the United States (keeping it sealed until wisdom has revealed it);  the truth of the matter is, He didn’t use alternate colors at all, but the TRUE colors of the United States.  Though the American flag is said to be RED, WHITE & BLUE, the blue in the flag is not true-blue at all, but a new color called navy-blue, that was not known in the days of John.  As you can see, navy-blue is closer to the purple of John’s day, than blue.  Neither is the red of the American flag true-red, but it is scarlet-red.  He described what he saw.

The author reveals this image to demonstrate-

Again, I find this quite convincing.  After all, because the word “blue” does not occur in the Greek of the New Testament anywhere, it stands to reason that the Greek word for purple, “porphurous”, might thus cover these closely-related hues as well.  Otherwise, it would be a complete mystery as to why this essential color of Old Testament days, blue (referred to 49 times), would not even be mentioned in New Testament days!

Now let’s talk about the American flag.  It occurred to me that there must be an official shade of blue in the USA flag and, indeed, there is.  It is called “Old Glory Blue” and here is a great picture-

The above information is from the sites-

http://www.usa-flag-site.org/forum/what-color-blue-2595.html

http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/us.html#shade

http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/

Not surprising for a government operation, we have these rules-

The official specification for federal procurements of U.S. flags is set by the General Services Administration. At the Defense Technology Information Center website is GSA “Federal Specification, Flag, National, United States of America and Flag, Union Jack” The specifications are:

Cable No. 70180    Old Glory Red
Cable No. 70001    White
Cable No. 70075    Old Glory Blue

Various sources give different Pantone equivalencies for these colors. The most plausibly authoritative are those provided on miscellaneous American Embassy websites, including American Embassy London. It gives the red as PMS 193 and the blue as PMS 282 (also, identified as PMS 281 in other publications).

Therefore, let us check blue PMS 282.

Although it is difficult to resolve specific hues on computer monitors, this vibrant color certainly appears “purplish” to me.  I can totally relate to how John reacted in seeing it, and in his description of it as “purple” in the Greek.

It seems that the verdict is in.

Finally, in Revelation 18:16, we have the identity of Babylon the Great illuminated without a shadow of a doubt, for she is clearly clothed in America’s national colors of red, white and blue-

“. . Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet . .

Now that you have read this article, hopefully the portion of the above verse will read to you-

. . Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in red, white, and blue . .

My prayer is that this article will open minds and hearts to the Biblical truth that America is Babylon the Great.  The timing of this is exquisite and God-ordained . . . as it is just before the Fourth of July, America’s Independence Day.  May you never again look at Old Glory in quite the same way**, but instead with the knowledge that this once great nation is rapidly approaching her final fall.  May America bless God now, and may this country fully repent of her evil deeds, for if not her judgment will reach up to Heaven.  Yet, tragically, this is already written and is irreversible, as we read in Jeremiah 51:9-

We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

and, more in Revelation 18:2-

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

God bless America?  America desperately needs to bless God . . .

With Love in Christ,

Update 20 July, 2011-

The evidence presented in this article truly should “strike the fatal blow” to the erroneous, but still prevalent, theory that the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) represents the Harlot, and therefore that the destruction by fire will happen to Rome and/or the Vatican.  Proponents of this theory like to point to the white, scarlet, and purple adorned by popes, cardinals, and bishops as part of the “evidence” that the Harlot is the RCC.  Now that we know it was actually “red, white, and blue (specifically, Old Glory blue)” which John witnessed in his profound vision while (physically) on the Greek Isle of Patmos this should be put to rest.  Additional scriptural evidence for America, and against the RCC, for the title of “Babylon the Great” is also overwhelming, and has been exhaustively presented by R.A. Coombes in his 2-part classic “America, the Babylon:  America’s Destiny Foretold in Biblical Prophecy“.

*My research has shown that this shade and hue is strictly the traditional rendering; the actual color is much darker as is demonstrated in this article . . .

**I was raised a very patriotic American; in fact, it was only about 3 years ago that I renounced extreme patriotism after realizing two critical things- one, that patriotism/nationalism is worship of a false god; and two, that although America was established by God to be a great hope of the nations and the Gentile light of the world, she has also had the seed of both the occult and rebellion since her inception.  Now, her downfall is rapid, as she has almost entirely fallen to the occult.  Yet may the True Church within America’s borders be purified and strengthened through these upcoming trials and judgments!

Some Interesting Prophetic Experiences So Far This Year

Update 11 April, 2014-

a- This article relates to section 7 below and reinforces the “unjustified shooting” conclusion I had reached as well-

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/08/us/miriam-carey-autopsy/?iref=obinsite

Apparently the Capitol Police “feared terrorism”, so they had to shoot her, rather than take any chances.  Well, then, is there any American who is safe these days from law enforcement?  Can’t the “feared terrorism” excuse be used against a college student wearing a backpack who ventures a bit too close to some government building or just seems “suspicious” to security?  This is an outrage, and although I cannot know her family’s full motivations I do firmly support the lawsuit as this US Police State is really getting out of control in a hurry.

b- In section 1 I do in no way intend to be suggesting inaction in the face of tyranny.  It seems to me that an excellent model of Christian resistance to a tyrannical regime is found in the example of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  I was greatly impressed by Metaxas’ book Bonhoeffer:  Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and the brand new one by Marsh Strange Glory:  A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer looks excellent as well.  Each situation is different, however, and the tactics Pastor Bonhoeffer and company employed will not be precisely the same as those used by the True Church in America in the years to come, of course, nor should they be, although some here will also face martyrdom.

—————————————————————————————————————-

1- The Yoke of Jeremiah-

I had an incredible experience this New Year day.  A group of 8 of us had lunch together, including my children, Dad, and sibling.  I was the last to sit down, having been granted the final chair at the table, and after getting settled in and taking a few bites I began to notice the surrounding decor; it was mainly Christmas displays including an evergreen tree to my right (see Jeremiah 10).  But, strangely, on the wall just above my head (as the ceiling height varied within the building), was a wooden ox(en) yoke, much like this one-

Yoke

Immediately I was transported in thought and spirit to Jeremiah 27 & 28 and I heard through the Holy Spirit “you are called to wear the yoke as did the Prophet Jeremiah.  Warn the people about the false prophets [I sensed that He was speaking of three groups- "patriots" who are encouraging Christians to fight by the sword (as opposed to the Sword of the Word), those promising "peace and security", and those who attack the few true prophets of God, especially for their reluctance to embrace the truth of present-day operation of spiritual gifts such as prophecy, all of whom are found throughout Babylon in this day].

Call the people to repentance.

Though Hananiah will break the wooden yoke from your neck, I AM will give them a yoke of iron.”

Here are Jeremiah 27:2-

Thus saith the Lord to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,

And Jeremiah 28:10-

Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck, and brake it.

Imagine my feelings while I was absorbing all of this from the Lord!  As I committed the words to memory I simultaneously wrote it all down.  Then, there was utter silence as I stared at the yoke above my head, closed my eyes, and prayed.  First, I know the wearing of the yoke to be spiritual, not actual (at least not yet).  On a personal level the wearing of the yoke indicates a commitment to this Jeremiad style ministry, subservience to the Lord.  The future breaking of the yoke by a certain Hananiah involves a vicious spiritual attack which is forthcoming against the ministry; the historic fulfillment, by the way, is revealed in Jeremiah 28:10 (see above), which incredibly matches the date “28 October” numerically (making this even more shocking is that Jeremiah 28:10 has a Gematria of 2080) and therefore my own Jeremiah 1:5 calling.  With a Jeremiah 1:5 calling necessarily comes false prophet attacks like that instigated by Hananiah.

Jermh

In wearing the yoke, Jeremiah was demonstrating that the rulers and people of Judah were to submit to the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar.  Now, submitting to the end times “type” of that King, one President Obama, is about the last thing I desire to do.  He is an antichrist-type, a most vile and despicable man called “Lucifer” (if indeed he’s the final President) in Isaiah 14.  But he is also the man God Himself has placed above the American people as an instrument of judgment on a backslidden, unrepentant nation.  There is no way, even with the control of shadow forces and outright cheating that this depraved man Barack Hussein Obama could ever have been elected President in but a marginally moral nation.  Sadly, America has reaped what she has sown.  Now, by submitting to the King of Babylon we are by no means agreeing with him in principle nor doing anything which goes against our values as Remnant Church Christians.  In fact, we are to speak out against him with the Word of God!  Yet this seeming physical inaction is not what the “flesh” leads and encourages us to, or the heart might indicate, but we are to be Spirit-led, not flesh-led.  The heart is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9).  We are here in Babylon only physically, as spiritually we have already left . . . if you haven’t, that is the next step and it must be very soon.  WE ARE TO RESIST IN SPIRIT!!!  The battle is spiritual in nature (Ephesians 6:12) and therefore it must be fought in the spiritual realm.  The life of the Prophet Daniel acts as a great example of how we are to exist under tyrannical rule and kings (even evil ones) without compromising our values.

Now, back to the yoke- it is a symbol of servitude, even humbleness, and the word “yoke” occurs 53 types in the Holy Bible, including 6 occurrences in the Greek of the New Testament.

From the Jewish Virtual Library is taken this quote-

The yoke was a symbol of servitude in the Bible. In order to emphasize the weight of oppression, the yoke is sometimes described as of iron (Deut. 28:48). It was also a symbol of the burden of slavery or taxes upon the people (I Kings 12:11), while freedom from oppression was described in poetic and prophetic literature as the breaking of the yoke (Jer. 5:5).

In a sense, as Christians we are all to “wear the yoke”; this specific case represents a tertiary, personal message to me in this event as well as relates to my prophetic calling.  Here is Matthew 11:29 to 30-

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

As “homework” I’d recommend reading the entire Book of Jeremiah, for within the pages we can surely see America as a type of Judah.  And, when you near the end, just keep in mind that Chapters 50 & 51 deal exclusively with America the Daughter of Babylon*.  It would be good to follow this reading with the whole of Habakkuk, a short Book, as you will see that he is also speaking of modern America primarily in Chapters 1 and 2.

Now, to finish this section let’s think about yokes a bit more.  A yoke suggests control.  In a spiritual sense, we can either be under the yoke of the world or the yoke of Christ.  We must never fall under the yoke of the world for this world is fallen, and in the clutches of the devil.  So, spiritually we must be under the yoke of Christ.  Sometimes however to be obedient to Him we are also on occasion to go under the yoke of governments and kings, metaphorically speaking, as opposed to the un-yoked situation of  “freedom” leading to outright rebellion.  In this case of America in the year 2014, I assure you that Obama is God’s rod of justice and we are not to physically rebel against his authority, no matter that it was ill-gained and that he is a usurper to the throne.  My sisters and brothers, we are indeed living in the Bible days of the end times, and as it was in the past it is now, and there is nothing new under the sun.  Yet also, dear readers, we are the generation which will see the end of the current age.

2- The Dream of the Ministry Plane-

While I don’t regularly share dreams with you all, this one is important enough and teaches a lesson, so here goes.  Another dream in a later section of this article as well.  As a bit of background, there is a certain blogger who has been highly critical of the content of my blog therefore I have long considered him a nemesis.  For this rendering of the dream I’ll call him “Mr. R”.  So, here is the dream of early morning, 11 January-

There was a huge passenger airliner parked in front of my house on the street, facing NNE.  A few hundred feet in front of the plane was a construction site with new buildings just starting to rise.  I knew in the Spirit that the pilot would move the plane “when the time was right” and that I would be going with him and sitting next to him in the cockpit.  I was outside the house with my children when I noticed Mr. R messing around at the back of the plane, specifically at the tail fin section, trying to do something to affect the steering or stability.  My daughter was grieved in the Spirit and called Mr. R “A Greek Robespierre”.  I then confronted Mr. R, using stern language and telling him that the pilot did not want any “structural changes” to the plane, and anything he did would have to be the pilot’s decision.  He ignored me and continued; he had sandpaper in his hand and was sanding down the side of the underfin section of the tail.  I could sense in the spirit the pilot saying to me “Carlos, be assured my son that I am in control, and though he is not supposed to be there, all will be fine.  Remember, though the sandpaper is abrasive it is used for smoothing, everything is alright and we’ll be taking off soon.”

Thanks to this dream I have been able to come to grips with my emotions, and to forgive, for I understand now the Father’s purpose behind this enmity.  The pilot is the Father; the presence of my children likely represents the future (near future).  The huge airliner is this ministry which is set to “take off”.  The new construction represents the upcoming new blog which is just starting to be built.  The Robespierre connection I understand, but in fairness to Mr. R will not mention here.  Mr. R was himself; though his words are coarse and abrasive, and his intention was to “alter the steering and stability” of this ministry in order to disrupt it, ultimately his words will serve the Father’s purpose and will result in an eventual smooth ministry flight.  And, he may not realize it or see proof, but the fact is I’ve learned a lot from him, and his Berean attitude is commendable.  That said, I know with certainty what God is showing me and I will not stray from the path of obedience in revealing these parables to the readers, even those connected with dreams, gematria, and biblical numerology, all of which must and will consistently line up with the Word. Furthermore, I understand my God-given calling and must never depart from it. Now, back to Mr. R. for a moment, credit is also due to him also for my discovering the subject matter in section 10 of this article!

So, all is good.  I never fail to be amazed at how the Father speaks in dreams!  Oh, one other thing, the direction NNE from my place trends to spot-on the population center of the USA in Eastern Missouri.  This has stunning implications for the message of this ministry; that America will be soon be cut asunder and divided at her heart.

3- The Map of Babylon-

First, let me share what happened recently.  I was at the apartment mid-morning as the maintenance man was coming to fix the garbage disposal.  Also, I’d been informed that my unit was chosen as one of only 15 for a quick inspection by “people from the bank.”  I found this rather invasive and quite suspicious, as there must be over 200 units, so inquired about the reasons to the apartment office and was assured everything was on the up-and-up.  While my initial fleshly reaction was hostile, through the Holy Spirit later I realized that the Father was allowing this for a reason so I went along with the plan.  I was alone in the apartment when there came a knock at the door.  I noticed that there were three bank representatives present, all friendly enough and I invited them in graciously.  They included a young man and young woman, late 20′s or 30ish, and an older man of perhaps 60.  Now, to set this up just a bit- the apartment is one bedroom but I reside almost entirely in the living quarters.  My bedroll is on the floor in a corner, there is one computer desk with a chair and a stuffed bookshelf above, a rocking chair (for reading), and 3 medium-sized industrial tables loaded with books, papers, papyrus scrolls, and maps including a large color USA map which I had marked with various stickers.  The “inspection” had only lasted two or three minutes, when the eyes of the older man were drawn to my USA map.  He said “what are those marks there, places you’ve been?” and I said “no, actually I’ve been to all but a few states, those marks have to do with my Bible research on Babylon.”  With a leering and incredulous sneer, and pointing at the map, he said forcefully “That’s not Babylon” and, looking him square in the eyes I said “yes, that most certainly is Babylon, end times Babylon.”  Now, I could have said much more or even launched into several hours of explanation (or, showed him my bookshelf full of America as Babylon books and articles) but instead paused for his rebuttal.  He said nothing, and after a couple of seconds of awkward silence the young lady said “well, the inspection’s over, that’s all we needed, thanks!”  I showed them to the door and they were gone.  I glanced at the clock:  10:57am, minute 657 of the day.  Marching straight over to my computer, I checked the first occurrence of a word in the Bible with a Gematria of 657; here it is courtesy of the Bible Wheel-

H-0559אמר ‘amar {aw-mar’} a primitive root; TWOT – 118; v AV – said 4874, speak 179, answer 99, command 30, tell 29, call 7, promised 6, misc. 84; 5308 1) to say, speak, utter 1a) (Qal) to say, to answer, to say in one’s heart, to think, to command, to promise, to intend 1b) (Niphal) to be told, to be said, to be called 1c) (Hithpael) to boast, to act proudly 1d) (Hiphil) to avow, to avouch

So fitting to the interaction I had with that man.  I spoke the truth, and he acted proudly and defiantly.  The sad fact is that he is typical of Americans; by and large they are clueless about the current state of their nation and the fact that she is featured prominently in the Holy Bible.  They are proud of their nation, yet they are as wrong as wrong can be.  Pride is a great spiritual blinder.  But, you know, I think that this little encounter may have planted a seed.  Though I’m quite certain that he left my apartment thinking that he’d just met a real nutcase, and probably laughed about the happenings with the others, one day he’s going to get just a bit of a hint that perhaps that crazed man in the messy though sparsely-furnished apartment might have been “on to something” and speaking truth.  And, of course, there will certainly come a day when it will be obvious that America is Babylon, and for most it will be “too late”.  May the Father open his eyes before that Day.

4-Yosemite is in Houston-

I dreamed on 23 January that Yosemite National Park was in Houston, Texas, USA.  While this may seem ridiculous, as Yosemite is one of America’s oldest and most famous National Parks, located in California, the fact is that the Father speaks in dreams throughout the Bible and even today, and the meaning of this particular message is obviously spiritual and allegorical.  In this dream, the Park was “hidden” and the people of the city had no idea it was here although I saw it clearly!

In order to decipher the dream we must know the meaning of Yosemite; checking various sources these two related meanings keep popping up-

Those Who Kill

They Are Killers

Like many cities in Babylon USA, Houston has its share of violence.  When we think of “violence” resulting in death perhaps murder comes to mind; that is, an adult person killing another person with a gun or knife.  However, after prayer the deeper meaning of this dream was revealed to me- this is about the murder of abortion.  That is why “Yosemite is in Houston”.  Houston has the largest abortion clinic in the nation, some say in the entire world.  It is 78,000 square feet, and of course it’s a “Planned Parenthood” building.  Just look at the following picture of Houston’s openly lesbian mayor gleefully cutting the ribbon at the grand opening of the murder mill back in May of 2010-

houstonchronicleribboncutting

All of the gleeful people shown in this picture desperately need to repent!

Sisters and brothers, Houston, Texas is overdue for judgment, and the fulfillment of my 2011 dream, linked below, is ever nearer-

http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/houston-texas-an-american-megacity-in-the-crosshairs-of-double-judgment-a-prophetic-dream-part-i/

In the recent dream the people of Houston were not aware of the presence of Yosemite because they are spiritually blind to the implications, the implications being that this city has become like Samaria and Judah in the days before and during the ministry of Jeremiah, when the people would sacrifice their infant children to Moloch, passing them through the fire!

5-A Bible Number Code-

Most of the readers are aware of the significance of 28 October, 2013 to my prophetic calling and this ministry.  I had actually dreamed of “Room 1028″ (corresponding to the date 28 October of 2013) 1515 days earlier.  For a quick recap, this “dream that changed my life” involves the verse Jeremiah 1:5, verse order number 18,952 of the Bible (KJV)- I was 18,952 days old on the above date revealed cryptically within this profound night vision.  Anyway, the 4 September, 2009 dream contained these elements-

5 (a $5 bill)

10 (a $10 bill)

15 (as shown by the 5 followed by the 10)

Doubling (revealed by the 5 followed by the 10)

777 777

777 777

Room 1028 (a date 28 October of some future year; 75 days later a dream of an asteroid and an actual asteroid which impacted the western USA confirmed that the year was 2013) . . .

There are 31,102 verses in the KJV Holy Bible; the “mirror” verse of Jeremiah 1:5 is Ezra 5:15 (verse order no. 12,150) with a Gematria of-

3513

Subtracting the Gematria of Jeremiah 1:5-

4052

3513 – 4052 =

-539

539 BC is the year that ancient Babylon of Belshazzar fell to the Medes and Persians.  My prophetic calling via the dream above pertains to the soon fall of prophetic end times Babylon, the United States of America.  With this in mind, then, on 31 January I was outside playing with the dogs, throwing a ball to them when it occurred to me that I needed to check the time.  So, I pulled out the cell phone from my pocket and “awakened” it; on the screen was this-

77*7

Now, it’s not unusual to have numbers pop up on my phone, it happens a lot, and generally I do not believe it’s a “message from God”.  However, this time I took notice.  The time was 5:52pm, reminiscent of the 2552 years between the fall of ancient Babylon and 2013, which I’ve termed “The Mississippi River Code”, which apparently points to the final spiritual fall of Babylon America in 2013 due to the re-installation of Obama (twice = “confirmation”, Biblically) as well as the year of my installment as prophet to America.

The * symbol means “multiply”, so that’s what I did, multiplying 77 x 7 which gives us 539, the year of ancient Babylon’s fall.  This is another “layer” to the interpretation of that shocking prophetic dream, as remembering these images-

777 777

777 777

In yet another profound layer of meaning these can be considered as-

77*7 = 539 quadrupled.  Why quadrupled?  Because America’s judgment as end times Babylon will be doubled (Revelation 18:6).  In addition, this is related to the matter being confirmed, as twice is confirmation!

There is more.  Looking at each pair as 539 + 539 we get the result 1078.

1078 – 1028 (room number) = 50

50 = 5 x 10, the two other numbers of the dream!

Again, this is twice for confirmation.

God speaks to us in many ways.  Don’t follow every little “sign” especially if you think it’s showing you the date of the Rapture as being, for example, on 11 April, but, on the other hand, be aware of the still small voice pointing you toward those particular signs which He has specifically placed just for you.

6-A Banker Prophesies-

I had a financial emergency a couple of weeks ago and had to go to a bank.  So, I first went to Bank A, where I’ve had an account for years and have a family history related to this bank which goes back into the 1880′s [details forthcoming in separate article].  Anyway, I was refused and then ventured to Bank B where the Christian Banker Mr. M. helped me weather the crisis and during a discussion of Christianity in America and the time of the end prophesied thusly-

You are the messenger, you have a message to go forth and speak, if you had been born 15 seconds earlier or 15 seconds later it wouldn’t have been. You were born at the precise second for God’s purpose in your life.

I’m just praising God for how He works through people to deliver His messages for, the fact is, Mr. M. was likewise acting as a messenger in his prophesying!

—————————————————————————————————-

7-False Prophets Abound-

It’s funny how often I’m hearing the word “prophet” being bandied about in the mainstream media lately.  Almost as often as the disturbing “channeled the spirit of . . . (fill in the blank with the name of your favorite dead liberal)”.  Two recent cases are the Prophet of Stamford and the Ink Prophet.  Anyway, the “prophet(ess)” who was executed by the Feds late last year was a young lady from Connecticut, Miriam Carey.  She was gunned down between the White House and Capitol after a “police chase” for “driving erratically” and exhibiting other “suspicious” behavior back on 3 October of 2013.  Thankfully her baby, with her in the car, was not killed as well, although the brave Capitol Police put 5 bullets into the unarmed “suspect” and possibly others may have been pumped into the vehicle itself.  The following is a quote from (bold emphasis C.M.; when you get to link click “FULL STORY”)-

http://www.newshour24.com/world/74w2d3nhp/Capitol-Chase-Woman-Prophet.htm

She stated that President Obama put Stamford in lockdown after speaking to her because she is ‘the prophet of Stamford,’ the reports state. She further stated that President Obama has put her residence under electronic surveillance and that it was being fed live to all the national news outlets.

Police were called back to her home later that month. She again said she was a ‘prophet for the city of Stamford‘ and that she had direct communication with President Obama.

Hmm, well she was clearly a disturbed and delusional woman, but she did not deserve to die at the hands of the U.S. Government in the manner in which she did.  Her family echoes my sentiments-

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/connecticut-woman-shot-dead-feared-obama-stalking-report-article-1.1476189

Another “prophet” in the news this week is one Tyler Austin Black from Kentucky.  When his beloved University of Kentucky Wildcats qualified for the NCAA Basketball Tournament several weeks ago he rather presumptuously went ahead and got himself a very special tattoo-

tattoo

Boldly, through this inking he predicted that U.K. would go all the way and win the National Championship.  As of the time of the article I will link, they were one day away from doing just that, with only the University of Connecticut “U Conn” Huskies in their way.  The Ink Prophet obtained his tattoo at the “Vice and Virtue” Tattoo Parlor in Berea, Kentucky.  “Vice and Virtue” is self-explanatory; “Berea” means “pure”.  The 9 in his tattoo stands for what would be U.K.’s 9th National Championship; bibically, however, 9 speaks of either judgment or fruits/gifts of the Holy Spirit.  One rendering of the name “Tyler Austin Black” yields, essentially, “Doorkeeper of the Majestic Dark One”; in other words, spiritually, this is a really “dark” name might I suggest.  The English Gematria of his name totals 1158, 18 (6+6+6) less than my own 1176, not surprisingly.

If you’d like to read the article, see link here-

For video of the “prophet”, go here-

http://sports.yahoo.com/video/meet-kentuckys-ink-prophet-194205423.html

What’s with the goofy beard and the arms?

Here is an interesting quote from the first article-

Aside from his sudden celebrity status over the last few weeks, Black is representative of countless Kentucky fans.  He’s a salt-of-the-earth, small-town guy who grew up with Big Blue . . . They (the UK players) loved it (the tattoo).  They said they’re going to win a championship for me . . . Maybe everyone should have taken the Ink Prophet more seriously from the start.

Back when I was a lad, a “salt-of-the-earth” American was generally not covered in tattoos, a mark of a fleshly/carnal man, but hey that was several decades ago- things have changed!  Anyway, certainly one can repent of past indiscretions although obviously the UK tattoo is only 4 weeks old!

Just for clarity, I do not believe that Mr. Black ever claimed to be a prophet, but that rather the label was placed on him.  If he did, however, claim the prophet role and title then it is clear now that he would be of the false prophet variety, as his team lost 7 April by the score of 60 to 54.  Lost by 6, the number of fleshly/carnal man.  Oops.

8-The Mysterious 777 and Some Unusual Connections-

As I write this on the evening of 10 April the search area for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 has been reduced to a rather small section of the southern Indian Ocean.  Now, in no way do I desire to make too much of this, but the Holy Spirit did prompt me to look into the “Missing 777″ and compare the known event details to the dream that changed my life with its featured sets of “777″.  So, obediently, I did just that.  First, looking at the flight number (370) and subtracting the number of passengers (239) we are left with the palindrome 131.  Biblically, by the rule of first usage, 239 has to do with “sojourn” and 370 has to do with “dust”.  The 777 went missing on 8 March; we can calculate the date duration from 28 October, 2013, the date referenced in the dream 1515 days earlier, which is when I stepped into my Jeremiah 1:5 role, and we see that the duration is:  131 days.  Next, we can also calculate the day the 777 went missing from the dream itself, and the duration is:  1646 days

1646 is twice 823; 823 mirrors the number 800 above as 777 mirrors 800 below.

823 – 23 = 800 = 777 + 23

823 – 23 = 800 = 777 + 23

Interestingly, this would also mirror 23 chromosome pairs.

In the dream the 777 groups were paired thusly-

777 777

And what might 800 reference?  Omega, the end-

http://www.biblewheel.com//GR/GR_800.php

This “coincidence” seemingly evinces Lamech who died 4 or 5 years before the Flood at the age of 777.  Could the missing 777 evince that we are looking at the Fire (final judgment of earth) 4 or 5 years from 8 March, 2014?  Perhaps . . . but most importantly, is this theory/possibility Biblical?  This prophetic interpretation is admittedly not found in the Bible, obviously, yet it does seem to support a timeframe which may well be indicated in the Bible for the end of days.  To check this theory, I calculated the days from my birth (which, again, corresponds to Jeremiah 1:5 for 28 October of 2013) to the day that the 777 went missing, a day on which, coincidentally, I was 52.25 years old Gregorian (another palindrome) . . . the corresponding verse is Jeremiah 5:24 (24:5:24, also “balanced” if not quite palindromic)-

Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

Well, fascinating verse considering the circumstances.  But here’s the stunning “clincher”.  The Gematria of the above verse is 5779Hebrew year 5779 begins in September of 2018 and ends in late September 2019; this neatly fits the “4 to 5 year” Lamech window for 777.  In fact, it’s spot on.

Intriguingly, the search area for the missing 777, in the southern Indian Ocean, appears neatly antipodal to my location in the suburban Houston, Texas area.  The Australian official in charge of the entire search is named:  Mr. Angus Houston.

9- Blood Moons-

It is an understatement to say that there has been a lot of talk about the upcoming Blood Moon Tetrad.  Several books have been written on the subject, but I’d refer you to that of the original researcher, Pastor Mark Biltz.  Several fine articles have been written as well, but please pay close attention to the perfect symmetry displayed in Graph 8A at the following link-

http://bloodmoonscoming.com/?page_id=127

Stunning!  Clearly these blood moons and solar eclipses on Hebrew feast days are incredible signs of the end, of paramount importance . . . no Rapture in early 2014, though, readers, too much needs to happen first . . . for brethren in North America, please try to observe the first blood moon eclipse early on the morning of 15 April.

10- Derek Prince, Prescient Warning for America from the 1990′s-

Derek Prince, now gone to be with the Lord, was a native of South Africa.  He stated that when he first came to the USA in 1966, he was treated with great courtesy by the American people because he was a Pastor.  By the 1990′s his treatment here had changed dramatically.  Anyway, his sermon is very prescient, and keep in mind that this was from the Clinton era- how far America has fallen since then!  As a non-American Pastor Prince could observe the sins of the people of this country without the bias an American would have, so his testimony is certainly convincing almost in the manner of the prophet-to-America, Romanian Dimitru Duduman.

Pastor Prince’s classic “God’s Heart For America“, sermon in mp3 format-

My hope is that his words will resonate in your heart, and that you will seek the Father for His will.

Jeremiah 27 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word unto Jeremiah from theLord, saying,

Thus saith the Lord to me; Make thee bonds and yokes, and put them upon thy neck,

And send them to the king of Edom, and to the king of Moab, and to the king of the Ammonites, and to the king of Tyrus, and to the king of Zidon, by the hand of the messengers which come to Jerusalem unto Zedekiah king of Judah;

And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;

I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.

And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.

And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son’s son, until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of him.

And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the Lord, with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.

Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:

10 For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.

11 But the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him, those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the Lord; and they shall till it, and dwell therein.

12 I spake also to Zedekiah king of Judah according to all these words, saying, Bring your necks under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and serve him and his people, and live.

13 Why will ye die, thou and thy people, by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence, as the Lord hath spoken against the nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?

14 Therefore hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

15 For I have not sent them, saith the Lord, yet they prophesy a lie in my name; that I might drive you out, and that ye might perish, ye, and the prophets that prophesy unto you.

16 Also I spake to the priests and to all this people, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Hearken not to the words of your prophets that prophesy unto you, saying, Behold, the vessels of the Lord’s house shall now shortly be brought again from Babylon: for they prophesy a lie unto you.

17 Hearken not unto them; serve the king of Babylon, and live: wherefore should this city be laid waste?

18 But if they be prophets, and if the word of the Lord be with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, go not to Babylon.

19 For thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the pillars, and concerning the sea, and concerning the bases, and concerning the residue of the vessels that remain in this city.

20 Which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took not, when he carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah from Jerusalem to Babylon, and all the nobles of Judah and Jerusalem;

21 Yea, thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, concerning the vessels that remain in the house of the Lord, and in the house of the king of Judah and of Jerusalem;

22 They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be until the day that I visit them, saith the Lord; then will I bring them up, and restore them to this place.

Jeremiah 28 And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of theLord, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,

Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon:

And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into Babylon, saith the Lord: for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.

Then the prophet Jeremiah said unto the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people that stood in the house of the Lord,

Even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the Lord do so: the Lord perform thy words which thou hast prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the Lord’s house, and all that is carried away captive, from Babylon into this place.

Nevertheless hear thou now this word that I speak in thine ears, and in the ears of all the people;

The prophets that have been before me and before thee of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.

The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him.

10 Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck, and brake it.

11 And Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.

12 Then the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the prophet, after that Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah, saying,

13 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Thou hast broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them yokes of iron.

14 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

15 Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the Lord.

17 So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.

Obama the Double Rebel?

I found the fascinating satirical image below on runningfrombabylon; link here-

http://runningfrombabylon.blogspot.com/2014/03/relentless-mocking.html

191869_1_

Quoting GardenGirl from her article-

Thomas Lifson takes a look at how the Russians have MERCILESSLY been mocking President Obama for days now, including showing Obama photoshopped as a KGB Colonel who is really one of them with the ultimate goal of destroying America, and Obama’s assignment — destroy it from within!

Isn’t it interesting that the Russians assigned the number 13013 to Obama? 13 is the number of rebellion and associated with Sodom, and here it is in the same number twice.

Well, needless to say GardenGirl’s discovery got me to thinking.  To start I looked at the prime factorization of that very interesting number 13013.  There are four prime factors of the number 13013, expressed as such-

Factors: 13013 = 7 x 11 x 13 x 13

In Biblical numerical-speak this can be written as:  13013 = Spiritual Completion x Disorder/Chaos/Judgment x Rebellion squared

The product of the first two factors listed, 7 and 11, is 77, an interesting number in itself.  The first word with a Gematria of 77 “Gihon” (one of the 4 rivers in the Garden of Eden), first occurs in Genesis 2:13.  Genesis 2:13 is Verse Order Number 44 of the Holy Bible (KJV).  Obama is well known as President Number 44 of the U.S.A. and one Biblical meaning of 44 can be discerned through its factors of 11 and 4 thusly:

Disorder/Chaos/Judgment x World

Disorder, chaos, and judgment for the world?  So far on a status report of Obama’s presidency I’d give that a “check”, but granted there are several ways to look at the number 44 Biblically, and this is but one of the more prominent.  For example, the Bible Wheel meaning of number 44 has a whole lot to do with Cain, the first murderer . . . hmm . . .

Now, speaking of Verse Order Number, verse 13013 in the Holy Bible (KJV) is from the Book of Job, Book 18 (6+6+6) which deals a lot with man (6) and Satan (he of the 666 identifier in a future indwelt man).  Here is the verse in question, Job 7:4-

When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.

Significantly, perhaps, there are 11 words and 44 letters in the original Hebrew.  I’ll let you, the readers, ponder potential implications, if any, of this verse to the current situation in the world and to Obama (clearly not a moral type of Job, the godly man) in particular.

Obama has been associated with the number 13 before; I discuss Obama, “his” asteroid, and 1300 days in a previous article-

http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2010/10/16/prophetic-dream-asteroid-western-usa/

And here is a quote extracted from the above-

Look at what appeared in the mailbox yesterday-

wstandard-v18-37-june10-cover_

The 10 June edition of The Weekly Standard.  Haha, well only 1300 days after the actual Obama asteroid which struck the Utah/Nevada border region at 7 minutes after midnight (Utah time) on 18 November, 2009-

From and including: Wednesday, November 18, 2009  Obama dream and asteroid

To, but not including: Monday, June 10, 2013  Obama’s Asteroid magazine cover

It is 1300 days from the start date to the end date

As per Biblical precedent of “first usage”, what might be the meaning of the number 1300?

“Lukos” or Wolf!   Strong’s Number G3074

λυκος lukos {loo’-kos} perhaps akin to the base of 3022 (from the whitish hair); TDNT – 4:308,540; n m AV – wolf 6; 6 1) a wolf 2) metaph. of cruel, greedy, rapacious, destructive men


Sounds like the man in the White House alright.

There is more.  Shockingly, the Gematria of 1300 in the first occurrence of “lukos” is found in a verse which itself has a total Gematria of 13000; Matthew 10:16-

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves (1300): be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (13000)

And I’ve also discussed Obama as the man of rebellion, identified with the number 13, here-

http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/renegade-man-renegade-nation-obama-america-the-number-thirteen/

Following is a quote from the article-

Here is what I’ve discovered, in part, about America and the connection to her current and possibly final President, Barack Hussein Obama.  For starters, check out this date duration courtesy of www.timeanddate.com

From and including: Thursday, July 4, 1776  Birth of the United States of America

To, but not including: Friday, August 4, 1961  Birth of President Barack Hussein Obama

It is 67,600 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date

67,600 is, profoundly, 260 x 260 which can also be written as-

13 x 13 x 400

13 squared times 400, distinctly American!

Here I should note that 400 is the highest single value of any Hebrew letter.  It is the letter Taw.  Interesting and even sobering, for this letter and number effectively “end” the Hebrew alphabet and represent therefore, admittedly obliquely, another connection of “Obama” to “the end”.

In January 2015 Obama will have been in office 6 years; 6 is the number of man or, more oft-used, of fleshly/carnal unredeemed man.  By the first week of Tishri, 5776 (mid-September, 2015) Obama will have held office for 6.66 years.  There’s a lot of “buzz” about September 2015 in prophetic circles, as related to the blood moon eclipses and the Shemitah (see The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn).  But, for that matter, there’s a whole lot of talk about the beginning of the blood moon cycle this April and possible major prophetic events even in late March, so keep “watching” brethren.

Repent now, for our Messiah’s return is near at hand,

Trial by Fire: A Prophetic Warning Sounded Seventy Years Ago This Week- America Needs an Elijah!

Introduction-

I’ve just begun reading the new book Revelation 18 and the Fate of America by Dr. James F. Gauss, and so far it’s a good read, filled with lots of Biblical and U.S. history.  Scanning ahead I see some areas of discussion within the text that other authors who have written about America as Babylon have not covered.  On the one hand, Dr. Gauss would seem to be missing huge portions of the prophetic word about end times Babylon America by ignoring Old Testament prophecies, yet what is covered looks interesting, and already upon completion of my Chapter One reading I’ve had to “stop reading and start typing” for this urgent and most timely word needs to go out to the readers of this blog.

Seventy Years-

Most of you are aware of the “seventy years” prophecy of Jeremiah [25:12] and hopefully you are convinced that the prophecy will find dual fulfillment with America, the daughter of Babylon.  Essentially, what this entails is that America will have a seventy year reign as the world superpower, and I speculated back in 2012 that the seventy year countdown could not have begun any earlier than late 1943 (when the tide of World War II began to turn toward the Allies) or any later than mid-1948 (the establishment of Israel as a nation).  Furthermore, I’ve often discussed that seventy 360-day prophetic years is almost exactly sixty-nine Gregorian (current calendar) years.  Therefore, we’re looking at the fall of America from late 2012 through approximately mid-2018.  Although one could argue that the nation took a major spiritual fall* with the re-election of B.H. Obama in late 2012 as de facto king of Babylon (Biblically, twice equals “confirmation”), for a variety of Scriptural reasons I’m focused on late 2015 through late 2017 for the catastrophic physical fall.

Here is the key verse under discussion; Jeremiah 25:12-

And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.

Clearly, the ancient Babylonian empire under Belshazzar, which fell to the Medes and Persians in 539 BC, was never made “perpetual desolations”, and after precisely seventy years of captivity the Hebrew exiles were allowed by Cyrus to return to Jerusalem (Daniel 9 refers to Jeremiah’s seventy year prophecy).  Now, back to Dr. Gauss’ book.  Chapter One is entitled “Trial By Fire” by Dr. Peter Marshall and is a word-for-word transcript of the famous sermon delivered in New Orleans, Louisiana on 11 March, 1944, exactly 70 years ago Tuesday.  This sermon has been available on audio in the recent past from Peter Marshall Ministries, but upon the death of Peter Marshall Jr. at the age of 70 just three and one half years ago the ministry, sadly, seems to have become inactive.  For those interested, I did locate some nice books about, and audio sermons by, Rev. Peter Marshall (Sr.) on Amazon.

As far as I know this particular sermon is found in print solely within this referenced book and in a fine Lamplighter Magazine issue from March of 2007.  I am here linking the publicly-available pdf file of this article-

http://www.lamblion.com/xfiles/publications/magazines/Lamplighter_MarApr07_Elijah.pdf

As a quick recap, the Prophet Elijah was incensed by the mixing of Baal worship with the worship of Jehovah God in the northern territory of Israel and took on 450 prophets of Baal in front of the citizenry, forcing the people of Israel to choose sides.  This occurred during the time of King Ahab and Jezebel.

Please read pages 3 through 7 for the sermon itself and Dr. David R. Reagan’s response on page 8.  And here is Dr. Reagan on Mount Carmel repeating the beginning portion of Rev. Marshall’s sermon-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEnhHoXnKN4

At 4:09 you will hear the dramatic call for a prophet in the mold of Elijah to stand up in America.

Elijah-prophets-baal

Below I will select only a few pertinent quotes from Rev. Peter Marshall’s profound and powerful sermon of 11 March, 1944 (bold emphasis C.M.)-

“If the Lord be God, follow him, but if Baal, then follow him” [I Kings 18:21]

The setting of the text was one of the most dramatic in the Old Testament.  The leaders of the nation, including the king, had come together to make a great decision.  It was a national emergency, something had to be done.  Elijah the prophet had called them to meet on Mount Carmel to settle no less a question than whom they should worship.  It was a day of choice, a day of destiny.  William Penn said that ‘Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.”  Here then was an ancient Hebrew prophet facing the very same issue, and making his people face it with him . . .

. . . The true God and His holy law had been written into the nation’s constitution.  The Ten Commandments had been to them a Bill of Rights and a Declaration of Dependence.  The leaders of the young nation had taken God as their King and Sovereign . . . They had been taught that obedience to the laws of God was the only foundation for national greatness, liberty and security . . .

. . . As long as the nation could recognize God as Supreme, it could stand.  But something had been happening in the national light.  The faith and the vision of the founding fathers had faded.  Moral decay had set in.  There was confusion in the minds of the people. They were beginning to forget the principles that had made them a nation.  They had begun to love things more than principles . . .

. . . Materialism had a god.  His name was Baal.  He offered to his devotees things that human instincts craved.  He was a god of the flesh . . . It was worship and indulgence expressed in lust and adorned in selfishness.  It had no inhibitions at all . . .

. . . They took a little of Jehovah and a little of Baal.  They became by degrees more and more broadminded.  Was it not a free country?  Who wanted to be old fashioned? . . .

. . . So, morality became a relative thing.  The old absolutes were regarded as far too intolerant.  The national moral standards were lowered . . .

. . . Elijah saw the danger.  He saw what would happen to the nation when its moral fiber was weakened.  He knew the end of confusion and indecision.  He believed with all his heart, that national ruin and disaster were inevitable if the nation preempted Jehovah and departed from its charter and constitution.

Sisters and brothers, we were warned a generation ago by this servant of God, that we were sliding into Baal worship of materialism and sensuality.  Now, those seventy years later, we’re getting very close to the catastrophic destruction of America, but before this event the nation’s end times Elijah will be standing up, a man described primarily in Isaiah and Jeremiah.  Will we recognize him?  In order that we do recognize him we must heed the words at the beginning of the sermon, which were based completely on what Elijah of old presented to the people of Israel.  You can rest assured that America’s Elijah will call to repentance those people who say they follow the One True God.  You must pick sides now.  There can be no more fence sitting.  If you will follow God, follow him 100%, and if you choose instead to follow Baal, go ahead and do so but no longer pretend to be a Christian.  There is no place for lukewarmness, as you can surely grasp from the hard-hitting words of our Savior Jesus Christ to today’s Church of Laodicea in Revelation 3:16-

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Time to be hot or cold.  It is a certainty that this trial by fire is coming soon.  The question is “will it purify or consume you?”  The fire of tribulation purifies the remnant and consumes the chaff.

How did the Prophet Daniel respond to his own reading of the seventy years prophecy of Jeremiah?  See Daniel 9:1 to 3 (bold emphasis C.M.)-

1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;

In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

Knowing that America’s seventy years has nearly run the course, perhaps we should react in like manner, in sackcloth and ashes.

Repent now, for our Messiah’s return is near at hand,

Appendix I-

I Kings 18 (in part)-

17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?

18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.

19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.

20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.

21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.

26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.

31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the Lord came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:

32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.

33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.

34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.

35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said,Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.

37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.

38 Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.

40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Appendix II-

Rev. Peter Marshall Sr. was a very interesting and passionate man of God, who near the end of his life served as U.S. Senate Chaplain.  A native of Scotland, he passed away in his late 40′s.  Here is a short biography-

I find it intriguing that, as a boy, I had a neighbor named Peter Marshall.

*America’s spiritual fall began decades ago, but in recent years it seems to be increasing exponentially, at least in the eyes of this watchman . . . also it is imperative to note that although America will have a catastrophic physical fall which will be obvious, there will be more than one physical fall all told . . .

2013 and America- A Quick Look Back

First of all, let me thank my regular readers again for your incredible support of this ministry.  I must assume that the Chozeh & Nabiy blog is still “open for business” in 2014 for here I am, having just finished this, a new article, as the Lord has led.  About a week ago just after most of the encouraging comments on the last article hit, in fact New Year Eve 2013 on our Gregorian calendar, was replete with “new beginning metaphors” as it was 64 (8 x 8) days from 28 October, the day of my Jeremiah 1:5 calling, and was also a “10/28″ or “28/10″ in its own right, being the 28th of the month of Tevet on the Hebrew calendar (month 10 by the religious schedule which begins with Nisan).  As a reminder, the number 8 signifies “new beginnings” Biblically.

This is not meant by any means to be an exhaustive summary of the year, but rather a topical article covering just a couple of main points.  Right off the bat, the number 13 has been attached to America from her birth.  It is the Biblical number of rebellion as eloquently demonstrated by E.W. Bullinger in his classic Number in Scripture.  America was born in rebellion and, it seems to me, in 2013 she both flaunted her debauchery and was exposed for what she truly is.  And it’s not a pretty picture.  America will likewise perish for her rebellion against the One True God.  This said, I would call the year 2013 “the year of twenty-fold (20-fold*) rebellion”.  Just look at the positioning of the 20 and the 13 in “2013″; it seems clear to me that this relationship was met.

2013 was the year that America over and above crossed the line in terms of the promotion of “gay” culture; gay and LGBT were everywhere, not only “in your face” but “over the top” and basically a flaunting of depravity as a fist in the face of God.  If there was any question as to whether America was a “type” of Sodom and Gomorrah prior to 2013, the year 2013 certainly answered it.  Think Miley Cyrus and twerking (a new word coined in 2013, by the way, and Oxford Dictionary’s “word of the year”).  Remember Beyonce’s exhibition at the Super Bowl to start the year.  Think of all the gay and lesbian weddings the media just couldn’t wait to tell us about.  Recall the depraved scenes at the very end of the year at Times Square in New York City (Babylon, Babylon).  The list goes on and on, and frankly I have no desire to remember nor add to it!

However, I do desire to share with you all about a strange experience I had several years ago while attending a wedding in Texas, USA.  It must have been about 2008 as I had just recently been “awakened” to the truth.  The pastor was a woman, interestingly, but I don’t recall into which denomination she was ordained nor the specific church building where the ceremony took place.  Anyway, when the pastor spoke vows to the bride as in “Do you, such-and-such take this man to be  . . . ?” the last name she spoke for the bride was . . . get this . . . Gomorrah . . . I kid you not . . . she said “Gomorrah” clear as a bell . . . I was absolutely stunned but the pastor quickly recovered and repeated the bride’s last name, properly this time; it was a rather common Spanish surname in fact.  There wasn’t much “murmuring” or any indication that many others in attendance had heard what I had, but frankly I was embarrassed for the couple and a bit shaken at what had transpired.  However, at the reception I could see why the pastor may have had a “slip of the tongue” as it were.  The bride (and groom) were very inappropriate in their behavior, especially in their selection of music and the gyrating manner of their dancing with one another.  The entire reception was quite the debauchery-fest in fact, very nearly a drunken orgy, and I almost felt like I was literally in Gomorrah!  Of course, you won’t be surprised to know that the couple had lived together prior to their lovely wedding.  Also, as an update, rumor has it they have since divorced.  But, hey, they had a cool reception, right?

Seriously, though, I can’t help but think that God placed me at that wedding to see a parable playing out.  The “bride” in America is corrupt for the most part, she is a wannabe bride who has more in common with Sodom and Gomorrah than with the Kingdom.  Speaking at least of those calling themselves “Christian” as this couple did.  The would-be bride was filthy, polluted, as Gomorrah.  She was a false bride and he a false bridegroom**.  The United States of America has fallen spiritually to the level that her “King” is now Satan (see Isaiah 14).  And the lesson for us in the True Church is to shed every bit of this world, this Babylon, and live separately, for Babylonianism infects the entire planet, not just those of us living here in physical Babylon.

When I look back at 2013 and the twenty-fold rebellion I also remember that America’s Federal Government was exposed as frauds and liars.  Edward Snowden helped pull the curtain back and let us see what was really going on with the NSA, etc.  The IRS abuses were in the news, the Benghazi cover-up got some publicity, etc.  This is not unexpected; in fact, it is indeed expected that when a culture insists upon freedom from God that this same culture goes back into bondage.  Not only is the homosexual lifestyle bondage, but being under constant Government surveillance is subservience as well.  Likewise, we’re in bondage to an usurper to the throne in the person of President B.H. Obama [the theme of "bondage" ties in neatly with my next article].

So, throughout 2013 the media was flaunting the homosexual agenda and the world got to see American cultural debauchery whether they wanted to or not (since America the Babylon’s culture is spread world-wide like the spiritually-deadly virus it is).  Anyway, there is a Bible Chapter in Isaiah which comes to mind whenever I reflect on 2013; the entirety of Isaiah 47 (bold & maroon emphasis C.M.)-

1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.

As for our redeemer, the Lord of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.

And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

12 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

The “real” America was exposed in 2013 for what she truly is, and by this I mean both the “America” as represented by the Government and that represented by the people (culture).  In addition to this, it seems to me that 2013 may be looked back on as the year of America’s final/full spiritual fall-to-no-return.  After all, it is the year in which Obama was seated for the second time as the King of Babylon; twice, Biblically, is confirmation.  America confirmed her own dire end and hastened it!

But so as not to end this article on such a negative, the Good News is Jesus Christ Himself, and as we come “out of Babylon” spiritually we can know His call on our individual lives.  This article will be followed by a “Part I” dealing with the Book of Malachi and how the message of Malachi is for us in the True Church of today who have indeed left Babylon.

Repent now, for our Messiah’s return is near at hand,

Announcement

Update 26 December-

Below I’ve shared a wonderful, inspiring Susan Boyle video.  I’ve done some research on her life story, and it is truly a compelling one.  She needs our prayer support as the industry she is in is quite ruthless and spiritually dangerous.  While I don’t know where she stands in her faith, it is clear to me from watching documentaries that she is quite immature spiritually but has wonderful potential, and the good she is doing for people is something to behold indeed.  I pray that she will have or gain a strong, spiritually astute Christian friend who will help her to grow and mature in the faith.

Susan Boyle said something simple yet profoundly related to what I’d like to say to you, my readers.  It is this-

You never know what effect you have on people until they tell you.

Since I’ve posted this article I’ve received wonderful words of encouragement and support; very humbling and much appreciated.  Many of you have shared with me that this blog has blessed you and affected your lives.  I just want to let you all know, my brothers and sisters, that I love you in return with the love of Christ and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Update 22 December-

I’m supposed to link this (Susan Boyle, 1st Audition) for someone tonight.  Don’t know who, but hope it touches you as it has me-

Farewell . . . see you in our Father’s House [John 14:2]

Well, sisters and brothers, I’ve been administrator of this blog now for 3 years and 3.5 months or, more precisely, 1200* days.  As of this evening Chozeh & Nabiy- Prophetic words across the Seven Seas is officially closed for business.

The reasons are several, and personal.  Where do I start?  I guess I’ll just begin writing and see where this leads.  First, this is a time of transition in my walk with the Lord.  On 28 October God called me to a specific ministry involving a near-future prophetic mission; this is a Jeremiah 1 calling with a Jeremiah 50-51 responsibility.  The “last” article on this blog was originally scheduled to be “Man on a Mission, Part III” but that will not happen.  Instead, Parts I, II, and the new III will likely be combined under separate cover at a later time and for a mostly different audience.  Therefore, this article is slated to be the final word.

Second, time is short now.  As an angelic messenger spoke to me directly, and confirmed nearly a month ago in a dream vision, America will experience a dramatic fall in the Hebrew year 5776, that is to say sometime between late 2015 and late 2016, which may, for all intents and purposes, signify her “end” or the first of two, beginning and end, catastrophic Tribulation falls.  [Much more importantly, of course, is that a strong Biblical case can be made for this time-frame as well; a time-frame which, by the 70 years prophecy of Jeremiah, can expire no later than 2018; Hebrew year 5777 also shows strong connections]  I’ve been warning and calling the populace to repentance with increasing vigor in recent months only to have the words fall upon mainly spiritually deaf ears.  It is frustrating; that said, I’m not “giving up”, rather I’m “moving on” to the intense and painstaking preparation regarding the prophetic mission for which I was born.  This will require repentance, obedience, and solitude.

Third, my patience has worn quite thin.  You readers don’t see all the nasty and spiteful comments I get, but they show up on the blog and in my e-mail.  With time as short as it is, I frankly do not care to waste any precious time on those who will never hear and see the truth, and the Truth.  This group includes downright pagans as well as religious Christians (modern-day Pharisees) who, due to not being Spirit-led, are clueless about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, the Father speaking through dreams and visions to His children, God’s use of numbers in His Word, and so forth.  2 Timothy 3:5 comes to mind.

Fourth, I could say that my recent long article “America’s Destiny Part II” was a turning point.  I thought that it was pertinent research and revealed something profound about America as shown to me by the Holy Spirit, but the reception was lukewarm at best.  I’m especially hurt by certain Christians whom felt it unworthy of much more than a yawn.  I appreciate the support I did receive, and thank especially sister Cynthia and the Deyo’s (for linking the article), but simply can no longer continue to produce works requiring such intense labor which fall into obscurity while the ink is still fresh. The recent articles have been a disaster as well, in terms of viewing at least.  Now, to quote Dr. Ivan Panin, famed Bible numerology expert-

I thought people would be delighted to embrace the new discovery, but I found human nature is always the same. So I (will) quietly withdraw and (do) my work all by myself.

Though I do nothing for my own glory, it still is truly heartbreaking and apparently does not represent the best use of my time towards God’s purposes.  It is also heartbreaking to lose friends and I could write a book on that topic alone.  T.A., I miss you most of all.

Fifth, I’m going to take care of my family while there is still time.  I’ve got two children and an aging father.  I’ll also be focused on my own health since both heart disease and cancer run in my family, and as I’ve been a migraineur my entire adult life I am highly susceptible to stroke.  And although for now my life of celibacy remains intact as the Lord leads, perhaps there will be changes in my personal situation as well.  Recently I turned 52 by the Gregorian calendar, and I’m praising God Almighty for His protection as I had a most vivid dream in which a bad guy (strongman; i.e. one operating under the spirit of Satan) did his very best to keep me from reaching Mile Marker 52, after burglarizing my car (attempting to thwart my ministry)**.  The location of the dream was Missouri, which is no coincidence as I’ve written about this state as the center of both the Mississippi River and the U.S. population.

At this point, the Father has not led me to resign my job and focus solely on the ministry. You see, I do work full time and have for decades; the wonderful blessing is that I’m a consultant so I can generally (not including meetings) work the 40 hours which best fit my schedule, but still it cuts into time I’d rather be researching and writing.

Sixth, I’ve moved into a new area of research- “Bible Codes”.  You might have noticed a lack of mention of Bible Codes until recently, despite my obvious interest in the quasi-related areas of Bible numerology and Gematria.  This is because I remained respectfully uncertain about Bible Codes until I began to use the technology myself under the urging of the Holy Spirit.  This new research is also acting to shift my attention from this blog, for the initial Bible Codes results are leading me to understand that God indeed did have a particular prophetic purpose in mind for me before I was even conceived in the womb.  As part of this fresh undertaking, I’ll be learning Hebrew as time allows.  The fact is that a working knowledge of the Hebrew language is pertinent to my calling as an end times messenger for the daughter of Babylon.

Seventh, I’m going to focus on spreading the Gospel with specific attention to the orphans and widows.  In fact, I’m very excited about a new ministry involving soccer and I’ll be coaching here in the Houston area with plans to continue to eastern Europe and possibly Central America or even the Far East.

Something else has happened recently, too, although I do not believe it has impacted this particular decision.  The three Christian researchers I most admired all died within a 555 day period; David Flynn, Sue Bradley, and Richard Coombes.  I was probably significantly more affected by their deaths that I let on, or even realized.  It makes a man think about things, as the saying goes.  My dear mother passed away a year ago.  Death and senseless killings seem to be everywhere, and I find myself in agonizing intercession [for example; please see Parables Blog article of yesterday, and others in the series, which deeply affected me].

I would like to apologize to those who e-mailed me more than I e-mailed them in return.  The truth is that I just truly do not like this mode of communication, as I find it very tedious and disruptive to research, but I do appreciate each and every one of you.  I may come across as ornery, but the fact is that I love people and one-on-one I’m very pleasant with quite the sense of humor.  Funny thing is- I actually much enjoy snail mail, but a constant e-mail backlog makes that impossible these days.  The second group I would like to thank are my “followers”, both official and not, and lastly but most importantly my few true friends I’ve made on this site.  Your prayers have been greatly appreciated, sisters and brothers.

The research will continue, but will not be made public for the time being.

I would encourage you to continue to follow the blogs of the important researchers and awake True Church Christians in these last days; in no particular order the list includes Joseph at Parables Blog, GardenGirl at Running from Babylon, Cindy at Cindy by the Sea, William at Gates of the City, Deirdre at Testify, Daniel at Prayers for the People, Cynthia at The Trumpet Sound, William at End Times Forecaster, and Ultraguy at New Wineskins.

Certain articles will remain accessible, but comments will be closed and I will no longer “maintain” the site.  However, God willing I shall be archiving the key/research-intensive articles in PDF format for possible future use.  Of course, as God leads these “rules” are subject to change.

I’d like to encourage you all to continue in the work of saving souls, and also to persist in preparing yourselves spiritually for exceedingly difficult times just ahead.  Stand ever firm against the encroaching mark of the beast and the evil of this federal government, yet do not be tempted to join the “patriot” movement, for the end will be violent, and the motivation is fleshly and carnal, not of the spirit of Christ.  Rather, realize that the American republic is no more, and the nation is not savable.  Nor will the rapture save you out of what is coming upon these shores; this event will occur significantly later after many have gone into captivity, others have been martyred, and yet others have fled.  Instead, set your sights on Zion.  A remnant will survive, purified and refined.

If you’ve learned anything from this blog, I hope it is that America is the daughter of Babylon and that her demise is approaching rapidly.  That is a life-altering revelation which, if you take it to heart, will change you forever and bring you ever closer to the Messiah for He is the only one you can truly count on in this fallen world.

In Christ Jesus,

Carlos

John 14:2-

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Note- Just last evening I received what I interpret to be divine confirmation of this transition through a “random Bible opening”.  This is not a technique I oft employ, as I would never want to “cheapen” or “influence” anything.  However, as I was deep in prayer and very emotional after considering this post, I asked God if He would please show me something in His Word which would apply to the situation.  I turned directly to Judges 3:10 which starts “And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him . . .“; my Study Bible has this to say regarding this specific verse-

In Old Testament times the spirit of the Lord empowered certain individuals for a particular service.

Clear confirmation, for it is a particular service which must be this certain individual’s focus now.

*As this has been 1200 days, it is also imperative to note that 1200 is 40 prophetic months, and 40 is the Biblical number of testing and even preparation.  1200 is also the Hebrew Gematria of “spirit of the Lord”.

————————————————————————————————————

**An incorrect interpretation of the dream might be that the bad guy (who has a human equivalent, by the way) succeeded in that I am resigning this blog now, shortly after I turned 52.  This would be a wrong interpretation, as the work will continue and the ministry will endure, but it will be different in scope and more pertinent.  I could say that I’ve lost the battle but will win the war, but even that would not be accurate.  The accurate statement is that the battle has been won already, but the enemy may believe he is the victor in this case.  To which I would reply “Far from it you father of lies!”  Remember, brethren, we fight not against flesh and blood, but rather this is a battle in the spiritual realm [Ephesians 6:12].

Further Thoughts on the Two Fallen White House Trees

I’ve written about these two events now within several articles, with particular attention to the latter event.  To summarize, in the course of stormy weather on June 25, 2006 an Elm tree fell on the White House lawn (during the Bush Jr. Presidency), and a Linden tree snapped off at the base and fell on the White House lawn June 9, 2009, exactly 20 weeks after Obama took up (P)residency there.  Interestingly, the earlier fallen Elm Tree is the same one featured on the U.S. $20 bill.  There seems to be a connection here to the number “twenty”.  GardenGirl has written of the fall of the Linden tree in her stunning article here-

http://www.prayersforthepeople.com/20_fold_20_fold_judgment_is_upon_america.html

To my eyes, there clearly seems to be a “connection” of sorts, then, between these two administrations and the judgment metaphor of the fallen trees, as trees typically represent “peoples” Biblically, in this case therefore a judgment not only on the heads (Presidents) but the American nation (people) as a whole.

Following is a quote from-

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=7798100

A nearly 70-year-old tree at the White House fell victim to a classic Washington summer storm early this evening, suffering the same fate as the elm tree that is featured on the $20 bill did in 2006 . . . The tree, a European linden planted in 1940 on the North Lawn, was snapped off near its base, apparently knocked over by wind . . . On June 25, 2006, a wicked thunderstorm knocked down a White House elm tree that was more than* 100 years old and is visible in the image on the back of the $20 bill.

Since the Linden was planted 69 years before it fell, it was 70 years old in prophetic (360 day) years if planted as a seedling, or aged 70 in Gregorian rendering if planted as a sapling.  The Elm was considered to be about 100 years old*.  Both 70 and 100 are key Bible numbers which refer (in part) to the duration of a generation of man (see Psalm 90:10, Abrahamic verses).  We are in the final generation of this nation, the United States of America, as clearly symbolized through the dual falls of these trees, but most importantly as found in the Word of God.  Furthermore, both 70 and 100 suggest “completion” through the factors 7 (spiritual completion) and 10 (divine completion).

Fallen Elm Tree

Fallen Elm Tree

Fallen Linden Tree

Fallen Linden Tree

With this imagery, two verses immediately come to mind; Isaiah 21:9-

And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.

Revelation 18:2-

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

What is also shocking about the falls of these two symbolically-important trees is the duration between.  Using . . .

http://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html

We find this . . .

From and including:  Sunday, June 25, 2006  Fall of Elm tree on White House lawn

To, but not including:  Tuesday, June 9, 2009  Fall of Linden tree on White House lawn

Result: 1080 days from the start date to the end date

The number 1080 is, intriguingly, precisely 3 prophetic years as we see-

1080 / 360 = 3

Upon making this connection years ago I immediately checked the Bible for occurrences of “three years” and found several verses; the main meaning seems to suggest a time of testing or expectation (waiting).  Although this prophetically “fits” the events quite well, I was not satisfied, knowing in the spirit that God had even more to reveal to us about this number 1080.  Finally, after over four years of expectation/waiting of my own, I discovered a true nugget last evening.  I had just finished reading the book Cracking the Bible Code:  the Real Story of the Stunning Discovery of Hidden Knowledge in the First Five Books of the Bible by J. Satinover, and was scanning the footnotes when I came across this statement attributed to Rabban Gamaliel the Elder, the teacher of the Apostle Paul; here is the statement as found in the Talmud (bold emphasis C.M.)-

I have it on the authority of the house of my father’s father that the renewal of the moon takes place after not less than twenty-nine days and a half and two-thirds of an hour and seventy-three ‘parts’ (73/1080) of an hour.

Then, according to the author Mr. Satinover (bold emphasis C.M.)-

In this traditional reckoning, the hour was not divided into 3,600 of our seconds, but 1,080 halakin

Essentially, Gamaliel was echoing what Hebrew kabbalists had stated centuries earlier, in the Zohar, regarding the duration of the lunar cycle.  It turns out that the precise duration of 29.53059 days is encoded within the forty-two letter name of God in the Book of Genesis!  This measurement has been confirmed by modern scientific methods and, being God-breathed, was of course much more accurate than the estimates of Babylonian and Greek astronomers of ancient times.

The main point here is that back in early Bible days the hour was not divided into 3600 seconds, but rather into 1080 halakin.  So, now we have the prophetic meaning of the number 1080 as represented by the falls of these two trees.  The meaning has to do with “HOUR”.  Let us now look at the verses in the Holy Bible which deal with the fall of the daughter of Babylon, the United States of America and containing the word “hour”.  These include:

Revelation 14:7 to 8-

Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Revelation 18:10-

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Revelation 18:17 to 19-

For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

These verses describe the hour of judgment on America resulting in desolation.  The fallen trees on the White House lawn reveal that the hour of her fall is fast approaching.

Repent now, for our Messiah’s return is near at hand,

CARLOS MONTAÑA

*My Note- according to the article, the Elm tree may have been planted as late as 1906, thereby making it precisely 100 years old (Gregorian) at the “fall”.

———————————————————————————————————————

Concerning “hour” and “halakin” we might also suggest that, as 3.33 seconds, if this is indeed the smallest quantified Hebrew unit of time that a “halakin” is essentially a “moment” (although a better description of “moment” might be a fractional second).  If this, however, is indeed the case, the following verse can also be applied here; Isaiah 47:9-

But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
