‘Last Days Babylon’ Now On Drawing Board?

Mecca, Saudi Arabia is the spiritual home of Islam

Mecca, Saudi Arabia is the spiritual home of Islam
It is planned to extend over multiple nations and to dwarf New York City at 33 times its size. The costs are expected to be hundreds of billions of dollars, and it is already attracting investments from some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world.

It’s Neom, the new mega-city planned by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmon.
Located on the Red Sea coast, the city will have a special legal status within Saudi Arabia and will supposedly be fully automated, with robots outnumbering humans.
The city is also supposed to be powered entirely by renewable energy sources, feature free high-speed Internet and will extend over 10,231 square miles, crossing the Egyptian and Jordanian borders. The crown prince also spoke of the kingdom’s willingness to embrace what he called a “normal” life, promoting a form of Islam that “translates to tolerance, to our traditions of kindness.”
Saudi Arabia has debuted a flashy promotional video intended to attract foreign investment, vowing to build a center for global culture with “nothing to hold you back.”
“No set ways of thinking, no restrictions, no divisions, no excuses,” claims the narrator, speaking in a British accent. “Just endless potential. This is the blank page you need to write humanity’s next chapter. Neom … a part of the world set aside for those who want to change the world.”

The global financial elite are already rallying around the project. The Economist proclaimed:
“At the launch were an ebullient Masayoshi Son, the Japanese head of a $100bn ‘Vision Fund’, and Stephen Schwarzman, head of Blackstone, a private-equity giant. Klaus Kleinfeld, a former boss of Arconic, Alcoa and Siemens, is to be NEOM’s chief executive. The prospect of creating a dynamic zone without the barriers to enterprise found elsewhere in the country has such people genuinely enthused.”
Such grandiose pronouncements already are drawing criticism. The kingdom has already tried to construct the “King Abdullah Economic City in Rabigh,” billed as the “world’s next great economic city.”
But despite a projected population of 2 million people, there are only 5,000 permanent residents. There are also doubts whether Saudi Arabia’s bureaucracy can effectively administer such a massive project. In addition, the fall in oil prices is limiting the amount of cash the Saudis have to fund such an expansive project.
But another critic is worried about the more disturbing implications of the plan. Joel Richardson, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist,” believes he has solved the biblical riddle of “Mystery Babylon” in his book of that title.
And he argues the location of the end times’ city of evil is in Saudi Arabia, making the kingdom’s newest plans to become an economic superpower deeply worrisome.

“Throughout church history, interpreters, commentators and students of the Bible have struggled to understand the identity of a last days city known as ‘Babylon the Great’ (Revelation 17-18),” Richardson told WND.
“Many have looked to the city of Rome as the fulfillment, while others have looked to Jerusalem, or New York City. Others have been awaiting a city to be rebuilt on the literal site of the ancient Babylon about 50 miles south of Baghdad in modern day Iraq. In my book ‘Mystery Babylon,’ I suggested the kingdom of Saudi Arabia may be a more appropriate, and even more biblically defensible position. Specifically, I look to the city of Mecca, the single greatest city of idolatry that mankind has ever produced.
“Well over a billion and a half people bow down five times daily and pray toward that great city. The mosque in its center which houses the famous Kabba, or cube-shaped shrine that Muslims pray toward, is literally the single most visited location in the whole earth, with millions upon multiplied millions of religious pilgrims visiting each year.”
Richardson does not take seriously Saudi claims of favoring a “tolerant” form of Islam.
“Saudi Arabia is the single greatest source of funding for the spread of radical Wahhabi Islam all over the earth,” he said. “Over the past 40 years, the Saudis have spent roughly $150 billion to build mosques and fill them with radical Wahhabi hate preachers all over the earth. They have arguably spent more to spread Wahhabism around the earth than the entire mission spending of the global Protestant church. From any given madrassa in Pakistan to the mosque in your town or city, it is likely it was paid for by the Saudi royal family. No other nation in the earth has done as much as the Saudis to spread a false religion throughout the earth in such a way that its fundamental character has been so permanently impacted.”

Richardson believes the effort to build a new “mega city” supports his claim “Mystery Babylon” will be located within Saudi Arabia.
“Students of biblical prophecy have long noted that the book of Revelation speaks not simply of a city, but of a ‘mega-city’ that will emerge in the last days,” he observed. “Consider the massive building projects taking place in and around Mecca and Jeddah, which will soon feature the world’s newest and tallest building, dwarfing the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Just to the north, the Saudis have been quietly building the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), which is slated to become the region’s most technologically advanced sea port. All three cities – Jeddah, Mecca and KAEC – will soon be linked by a high-speed rail line which will allow anyone to get from one city to the next in less than 30 minutes.
“There is no doubt that this emerging megalopolis will match all of the unique descriptions of the last days Babylon, combining idolatry, religious power and economic power into one desert sea-port. It is for this reason that students of God’s Word are taking a fresh and serious look at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its relationship to biblical prophecy. Now, the Saudis have announced this massive project to the north of Mecca and Jeddah. Truly, this would fulfill the description of a ‘mega-city’ as mentioned in the Book of Revelation.”
Richardson, a frequent critic of Saudi influence on American politicians, acknowledges the kingdom will find it difficult to realize its breathtaking ambitions. Nonetheless, he warns the rapid expansion of Saudi influence throughout the world and the construction of a sprawling metropolis straight out of the pages of Scripture should command the attention of faithful Christians.
“Any watchful student of prophecy will be paying very close attention,” he said. “We should be paying attention not only to ‘Neom,’ but to all that is now unfolding in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the ancient and modern day fountainhead of a violent false religion now bursting out into the nations.”

R.F.I.D. Is Paving The Way For Total Governmental Micromanagement Control. All That Will Be Needed In Order To Implement This Technology Is Nefarious Leadership, i.e. The Antichrist:

Revelation 13:16-18  King James Version (KJV)
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 51

Jeff Swanson interviewed by Doug Hagmann and Joe Hagmann

Jeff Swanson has a website planbible.com It is his life work that produced a chronological Bible that is in order verse by verse.  It is the only one of its kind.

Where are we in the prophetical time line?  Jeff believes the signs at the end times will intensify and occur in rapid order within a relatively brief period of time.

Are we seeing prophecy fulfilled everyday in the headlines?  Yes.  They are not single events, but merging patterns and seasons.  The Middle East is falling together.  Nations are becoming antisemitic and standing against Israel.  Genesis 12:3  “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee.”  When the United States went against Israel, the Lord allowed us to be punished in the exact same amount through Hurricane Katrina.

There are 800 prophecies/verses that have been fulfilled in the Bible.  There are 2,500 prophecies/verses yet to be fulfilled.

Jeff Swanson’s studies of the Bible and his expertise in mathematics have enabled him to date key Biblical events.  Consider the following:

Using the Julian, Gregorian and Jewish calendars, Jeff Swanson completed 66 calculations and arrived at a creation date of 3960 B.C.  Jeff agreed with the famous Archbishop James Ussher (author of Annals of the World) on all but two calculations.  They arrived at creation dates only 44 years apart.  Ussher’s date of creation is 4004 B.C.

Jeff Swanson’s other dates are:

Date of Christ’s birth: September 11, 3 B.C.  (Julian Calendar)

Christ’s Crucifixion:  April 3, 33 A.D.  (Julian Calendar

Christ’s Crucifixion:  April 1, 33 A.D.  (Gregorian Calendar)

Jeff Swanson advised Christians that the Lord has placed each of us within a particular sphere of influence.  We are to be faithful to the people who God has placed in our lives.  We are touching more people than we realize.  After we leave this earth, the Lord will use the legacy of our lives to continually touch people in a powerful way that we do not fully understand.  [This was one of the most profound statements that I ever heard in a prophecy conference.  The interviewers, Haggman and Hagmann were touched by it as well].

**************************

Listen below to Eric Hovind and Paul Taylor interview Jeff Swanson about the same subjects discussed above:

Indian Summer / A Very Temporary Respite From The March Towards The New World Order

“Christians with discernment feel the political winds shifting towards the New World Order (NWO).  Politics, culture, the economy and the world’s religions are all converging for unity, and the Bible tells us that this will happen towards the end of the church age.  In the mean time, we seem to have a miraculous respite from this.  As a baby boomer, I am ever so thankful.  Two monkey wrenches that have hindered the advance of the NWO agenda are 1)Brexit and 2)Donald Trump.  Brexit, of course, was the national vote whereby England opted out of the European Union.  That was a kick in the teeth to global unification.  I perceive that Donald Trump will give us an Indian Summer prior to the introduction of the Antichrist and his global domination.  Judging from the atmosphere of all things in our fallen world, and everything falling into place as we come closer to end time events, I do not expect this Indian Summer to last very long.  I honestly hope I am wrong.  I perceive Donald Trump to represent the proverbial Dutch Boy who placed  his finger in the hole in the dike so that it would hold a little longer before the explosion, carrying the flood waters downstream.  This current era in our nation is analogous to King Josiah’s revival late in the history of Judah, lasting only until his death.  After King Josiah died, the revival was over because it was not in the hearts of the people, and the Israelites were quickly taken into captivity in Babylon.  Pray for our sin sick nation, our president, and all of our national political leaders.  Having just returned from Europe, I have come to realize that the liberal European nations, as well as the leftists in America, Republicans, Democrats and 99% of the media all despise our president.”

Blessings, Pastor Steve 

Southwest Radio Ministries Expose Rick Warren

Rick Warren’s Religion of the Anti-christ

Rick Warren has been exposed at every prophecy conference that I have attended.  All of the speakers see gross errors in his theology.  Rick Warren encourages Christians NOT to study prophecy because God did not intend for us to understand these things.  As you can see below, Rick’s time is spent, attempting to bring in the millenium himself, as he reveals his New World Order (NWO) colors through hobnobbing with secular, political and religious globalists from all over the world.  Christians identify the NWO with the Tribulation Period and the reign of the Antichrist.  Rick Warren endorses and is part of the NWO.  His paganism is revealed for all with eyes to see, and the following is yet another slice of his arsenic laden pie.  Warren has removed all doubt about his beliefs from any spiritually discerning Christian who truly examines him:

 

If your pastor does not teach the truth of Bible prophecy, you ought to find a church that does.

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 39

Brent Miller    ~    Fires From Heaven:  New Evidence For Man’s Demise

Brent Miller is the CEO and executive director of Ingenuity Films.  Their goal is to present Biblical truths in the most easy, understandable manner they can.  In today’s world, that happens to be through video.  Brent is also noted for the documentary The Final Prophecies.  It is an incredible evangelism tool.  The Final Prophecies is seen more by the secular world than by Christians.  The Final Prophecies reveals the merging of a one world religion, a global monetary system and a universal government, setting the stage for the Great Tribulation Period.  Decoding The Future is another exciting documentary that reveals the apocalyptic events soon to come.  Additional films for release from 2015 to 2018 are The Coming Convergence (2015), Purging America (2015), Bracing For Tomorrow (2016), Searching For God (2017), and Decoding The Past (2018).

The Fires From Heaven are a combination of the first and second trumpets from opening the seventh seal.  Fires From Heaven is a subject that is extremely frightening.  We can see these events right now, they are unfolding before our very eyes.  We see the foundation of these events starting.  The four horsemen of the apocalypse bring forth religious deception, wars, inflation, famine, disease, hunger and death.  War, famine and disease will kill one fourth of the earth.  Matthew 24:3-8 covers the opening seals of judgment upon the earth.  Jesus calls them the beginning of sorrows.  1.8 billion people will die in seals 2, 3 and 4, and Christ says this is just the beginning.  Christians are now being conquered through religious deception.  This is the opening of the first seal.  Outside of the United States, all Christians believe in evolution.  Inside the United States, 40% of Christians believe in evolution.  If Christians believe that creation came about without God, the next logical step is to believe there is no God.

We are witnessing a change in global weather patterns.  There are storms and tornadoes that are breaking records year after year around the globe.  Earthquakes are increasing in number and intensity.

Signs of the Times:

We see the world religion merging together that is based on tolerance.  [If you embrace everything, you believe in nothing].  Christians cannot embrace tolerance.  We are set apart from this world.

The world is merging to form one financial system.  The collapsed economies around the world will eventually merge.  We know that because prophecy tells us that, and we can see it coming together.

For the sake of mankind, someone will come forward and take control of the leadership of the earth.  The Bible tells us this will be the Antichrist.  We can see these things starting to unfold and we can see these things are happening simultaneously.

Thousands of Christians are being martyred every year because of their faith in Jesus Christ.  Many countries make it a crime to mention the word Christ.

We see the sign of nations all over the world turning their backs on Israel.  The United States and our leadership have turned our backs upon Israel.  These actions have consequences.  (Genesis 12:3)

Are there cosmic signs in the heavens as well?  Brent Miller believes there are, and that these cosmic events can be seen in the heavens all around us, but no one is looking.

First Two Trumpets Of The Seventh Seal: 

Fire From Heaven (1st Trumpet)  One third of the land mass burns up from fire.  What will be coming is a coronal mass ejection (CME).  This is a chunk of the sun that breaks off and strikes the earth.  Our atmosphere will roll away like a scroll.  Everything in the way of the CME will vaporize.  Most governments around the world are building underground bunkers for their leadership.  The earth’s magnetic field is beginning to collapse, which would allow a CME blast to penetrate our atmosphere.  The sun’s activities have been intense the last twelve years.  On July 8, 2012, a massive CME blast just missed the earth by one week.  If it struck us, it would have sent us back into the dark ages.  This event prompted governments to build underground bunkers.  

More Fire From Heaven (2nd Trumpet)  This is a mountain on fire being cast into the sea.  It will kill one third of all life.  It is an underwater volcanism event.  It is an underwater volcano arising from the sea.  It will kill sea life and create poison, as well as create tsunamis.  

Note:  A Passing Space Body Could Cause All Of These Apocalyptic Cosmic Events To Happen In Quick Succession.  (Domino Effect).  The Gravitational Effects Of A Passing Space Body Could Cause A Pole Shift And The Following Activity That Comes From The Sun.  Our Infrastructure Will Be Destroyed, The Earth Will Be Sent Out Of Its’ Orbit And It Will Wobble Like A Drunkard.  This Will Trigger The Fires From Heaven.  

We will not know the day or the hour of the Lord’s coming, but if we are watchful, we will know the times and season.  We can see the convergence of all of these events.  For those who know and serve the Lord, we will not suffer God’s wrath.   

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 38

Terry James    ~    This End-Times Bubble

What is coming down the pike?  We are living in times unlike any other in the history of mankind.  We are approaching the end of this dispensation of man’s history.  This is an exciting time for the Christian, as we look forward to being with the Lord Jesus Christ.  We have a bubble that is building unlike any other time in church history, where the Lord will soon call the church home and the tribulation will begin.  Jesus spoke extensively about this in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24).

Three major things that are happening-

1) There is a war like atmosphere everywhere, yet the end times have not yet commenced.

2) Anti Semitism is growing in Israel and reaching a new high in hatred of the Jewish people.  Many blame the Jews for all of the problems in the world.  Arabic nations want to destroy Israel and wipe her off the map.

3)The economy is in a bubble.  Our 18 trillion dollar debt is another bubble that is building, and it cannot ever be paid off.  Why do things keep going?  Why has it not yet burst?  We do not know.  It does not quite yet appear to be the Lord’s timing.

Deception In Government-

Deception in government rules the day.  Our leaders are deceptive beyond belief.  President Obama promised to have the most transparent government of all time, and it has turned out to be the opposite.  In “Fast and Furious,” our government intentionally gave guns to criminals in order to attack our second amendment rights.  Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) promised that we could keep our doctor and that the health insurance would be affordable.  The premiums are high, the benefits are less, and one does not keep their doctor.  Nancy Pelosi did not want anyone to see the proposal until it was passed.  The bill had to be passed before congress could see what was in it!  Deceptive governing is proliferating across the United States and across the world.  We were lied to about Benghazi, that the terrorism was over a movie maker.  Obama lied and said:  “I did not set a red line in Syria.”  Obama claimed Isis was a mere JV team and nothing to be concerned about.  Hours prior to the recent massacre in Paris, he again claimed that “Isis was not a threat.”  The IRS conducted illegal wiretaps in order to get at the enemies of this administration.  The VA scandal has led to the deplorable treatment of our war veterans.

Apostasy And False Teachers Arise-

The end times will feature seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.  Speaking lies with hypocrisy, and having their consciences seared with a hot iron.  The emerging church is filled with people who are not born again believers.  They are compromising with various faiths that say Jesus Christ is not the one and only way for salvation (universalism).  Examples are Joel Osteen, Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, Kenneth Copeland, Frederick Price, Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, Robert Schuller and Rick Warren.

Major Crises Building-

Societal and Cultural Wickedness Abounds.  Homosexuality, gay marriage.  How much more “without natural affection” could you get after gay marriage?  One man and one woman for life is thrown out the window.  Abortion.  The government endorses the killing of unborn babies- 55 million since Roe vs. Wade in 1973.  Men shall be fierce.  The black community is killing itself.  Society is on the brink of imploding.

Global Economics Is On The Brink Of Sudden Cataclysm-

There is an explosive geopolitical bubble developing!  China is building their military, based on our money.  Iran and Russia represent a major signal of the end.  Ezekiel 38-39  Persia meets Magog.  Many other nations will join with them against Israel.

The Uniting States Of Antichrist-

666.  The nations will give power to the beast.  The European Union will produce the Antichrist and his regime for the Great Tribulation and the last seven years of human history.  There will be a revived Roman Empire, the ten toes mentioned in Daniel chapter 2.

1)The European Union

2)The North American Union

3)The South American Union

4)The African Union

5)The Eurasian Union (Russia-Belarus Union)

6)The Mediterranean Union

7)The Gulf Cooperation Council (Arab States of the Gulf)

8)The South Asian Association

9)The Asia Pacific Union

10)The Caribbean Community

This is all in the making.  This bubble keeps building.  Our economic bubble will soon collapse.  We cannot keep printing money forever.  The banks will soon charge us to keep our money in them!  There is a lot of desire throughout the world, to drop the American dollar as an international commodity.

“When these things begin to come to take place, stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

God’s people are still here- THAT is why these things have not yet happened.  The rapture will burst the bubble, and open up the flood gates for the Antichrist and Great Tribulation.

 

A Kick In The Teeth To The New World Order (NWO) And Globalism

The Attempt To Establish A “New And Improved” Tower Of Babel Received A Major Setback:

Britain voted to exit the European Union (E.U.).  The feelings of the British populace is that the establishment in England has been ignoring the will of the people.  Does this not remind you of the United States’ Republican Party?  There is an obvious parallel to the candidate Donald Trump and his popularity.  Prime Minister David Cameron will step down from his office, on the heels of Britain opting out of the E.U.  The voting in England reveals that the people want to take back their sovereignty, control immigration and bureaucratic regulations, their borders, their culture, and their economy.  Donald Trump praised the British Exit (Brexit) decision.  Trump compared British nationalism to his own “Make America Great” mantra.  Trump believes this will create a ripple effect in Europe as nations want their monetary system and borders back.  There may already be an independence referendum in Scotland, following Britain’s lead.  The British voted out of the E.U. because they are tired of decisions being made for them coming from Brussels, Belgium.  Trump believes that this could start to unravel the entire E.U.

Why is this decision so important?  Genesis 11 tells us   that the Lord broke up the pagan Tower of Babel.  This “Tower” will be resurrected one more time, depicted in great detail in Revelation 6-18.  It is called the Great Tribulation period, led by the Antichrist and False Prophet.  There will be a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion.  As long as our country leans towards nationalism, we will keep our religious freedoms in tact.  The global philosophy, however, will severely impinge our freedoms and democracy.  Many politicians on both sides of the aisle are globalists, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Exiting British Prime Minister, David Cameron, is a globalist.  Donald Trump is a nationalist.  (Make America Great Again).  Pray for our national sovereignty to remain strong and pray…
