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.”

Antifa Rallies Planned in at Least 20 U.S. Cities – Won’t ‘Stop Until This Regime Driven from Power’
November 04 2017
The left-wing, Antifa Refuse Fascism group is planning rallies in at least 20 cities across the United States on Saturday to demand that the duly-elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence be “driven from power.”
In a full-page ad in the New York Times on Wednesday, the group advertised its event:
Nov 4 it begins — be there — join with the thousands who will gather in cities and towns across the country. A movement of protests that continue every day and night, growing until we become millions … determined not to stop until this is driven from power.
Newsweek reported on Thursday:
“Refuse fascism,” a nascent protest group with ties to a more explicitly left-wing radical group, “the revolutionary communist party,” doesn’t seem like a typical fit for the left-leaning pages of the paper known as The Gray Lady, but very little has been normal about the Trump era so far, according to organizers.
The regime is destroying the planet by ignoring climate change, they say, and they claim it is turning America into a fascist country through an unprecedented series of executive orders.
“What Trump and his administration are doing could pose an existential threat to humanity,” Andy Zee, a member of the advisory board for Refuse Fascism, told Newsweek in a phone interview.
“We’re in one of the most perilous moments in history right now,” Zee said.
The Refuse Fascism website states:
No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America! Take to the streets and public squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night — not stopping until our DEMAND is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
A list follows naming what those nightmares are, including discrimination against Muslims and gays, objectivism and harassment of women, and the danger posed by climate change.
The “about” portion of the Refuse Fascism states:
We launched RefuseFascism.org at an emergency meeting at the Great Hall of Cooper Union in NYC on December 19th, 2016. Watched by some 200,000 people on HuffPo’s FaceBookLive, Andy Zee, PZ Myers, Carl Dix, Jeremy Scahill, Imam Ayub Abdul-Baki, Rev. Doris Johnson, Sunsara Taylor, Immortal Technique, and Fran Luck spoke along with messages from Gloria Steinem, Chase Iron Eyes, Isabel Cardenas, and others on the fascist character of the Trump/Pence Regime and called on people to get organized to stop it before it came to power.
But some are saying that the reaction to the planned rallies is overplayed and is being characterized by some conservative websites as the start of a civil war.
The Washington Post reported:
Infowars has warned “Antifa Plans ‘Civil War’ to Overthrow the Government.” The John Birch Society put out two recent videos warning Americans to “stay home and tell your children to do likewise” on Saturday. YouTuber “A Glock Fanboy” notched more than 400,400 views for a clip raising the alarm about “the first day of the revolution or whatnot.”
Time magazine flatly said the claims of an insurrection are: “simply not true.”
There will indeed be anti-Trump rallies in 20 cities around the U.S. on Saturday, from Atlanta to Honolulu, organized by a left-wing political action group called Refuse Fascism whose goal is unseating Trump. But its tactics — including but not limited to a “passionate speak-out with music and participatory art” — are a far cry from violent insurrection.
Nor is it likely that the streets will be teeming with angry mobs: only 990 people have said that they’re attending the demonstration in New York, according to the event’s Facebook group.
Among the at least 20 cities where rallies are set to occur are Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle.

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.
Technology in place for Bible’s ‘mark of the beast’
‘I understand the pervasive evil that also can erupt within these 21st century advancements.’ Key the following links to observe a company in Wisconsin that offers voluntary microchipping:
Disclaimer: Christians must be careful to avoid what I call the “Chicken Little Sky Is Falling / Knee Jerk” mindset. Having this technology does not mean the Tribulation Period is five days away. For instance, the atomic bomb has been on the market for seventy two years, and only detonated for destruction twice at its’ inception – at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Blessings, Pastor Steve
Doug And Joe Hagmann ~ Muslim Terror Training In The United States
Islamic Infiltration in the U.S.
The Hagmann’s shared the results of their surveillance on the streets. Doug has been a private investigator for over thirty years, since 1985. Doug has met a lot of people in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security. Nine Eleven really changed our lives. Doug believed Osama Bin Laden did it.
Doug started examining the Islamic threat throughout the United States. They went to their mosques and various compounds. Timothy McVeigh’s partner lived in Boston and the Hagmann’s met him. He was an Iraqi soldier.
An “Islamic Army” is in our midst. There are Islamic terrorists in our nation.
What you are NOT being told… Islam is not a religion, it is a cult. It is a tool. Islam masquerades as a religion but it is a cult, it is a political system. It is a tool whose goal is to receive order from chaos. The steps to a one world religion: infiltrate, tolerate, dominate. We have seen the first two steps. Doug says 9/11 is a lie. The official narrative is not true. The Muslims are the violent ones who can bring in chaos, in order to set up a platform to work towards the New World Order (NWO). This was done step by step. Albert Pike, a prominent Free Mason from the past, wrote of three world wars that would bring America and Christianity to its knees, and establish a new world government. The leaders and politicians will create the third world war. This was the plan from the beginning. 9/11 was a plan of the globalists in order to create tension between Muslims and non Muslims. This was a platform that would lead to the third world war.
The Hagmann’s got word in 2003 that there were Muslim training compounds throughout America. There were roughly thirty of them. Their headquarters were near Binghamton, New York and Hancock, New York. They found a compound run by His Eminence Sultan Muhyuddin Sheikh Syed Mubarik ‘Ali Gilani. The Sultan was alleged to have kidnapped and beheaded Wall Street Journal Reporter Daniel Pearl in Pakistan. They have guard booths, with guards armed with rifles guarding their compounds in Hancock, New York. The compound consists of all black Muslims. The Hagmann’s took pictures of the paramilitary operations and sent them to the F.B.I. The Islamic paramilitary operations are protected by our intelligence including the F.B.I.! Hancock, New York supplies the power, water and rail lines to New York City. These compounds are all set up near the infrastructure of the United States. Armed men on the compound took shots at a school bus for practice. Islam says we will target your children. Because of his investigation, Douglas J. Hagmann has a Fatwa declared against him. [Fatwa- A death sentence has been declared against Douglas J. Hagmann]. The F.B.I. told Doug “I hope you have good security,” instead of defending him. There is collusion between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Muslim terrorists. The beltway snipers were from Islamburg, Hancock, New York. They were John A. Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, hidden by the government and the media!
There is an Islamic center in Buffalo, New York with tunnels underneath. They own many buildings in the surrounding neighborhood. The Muslims inside practiced paramilitary operations. The “Lackawana Six” Mosque in Lackawana, NY features paramilitary training as well. Mosques have state of the art security and communications systems. The terrorists use the drug “khat” in order to dull their senses on covert missions. It comes from banana leaves, and authorities allow it to get to the users.
1)Islam is not a religion, it is a cult.
2)It is a vehicle to usher in one world religion.
3)They seek to divide our nation.
4)Every mosque you see is really a Muslim training camp. Their services are essentially sedition.
5)They are attempting to introduce Sharia Law into the United States.
6)They infiltrate our culture. They are not interested in assimilating.
7)Something bad will happen in our nation and fundamental Christians will be blamed for it.
8)Islam’s game plan is to take our liberties away from us, by creating the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA. They attack our economy, our moral fiber and our borders. The F.B.I. has done nothing about this and will continue to do nothing about this. The Department of Justice is in alliance with radical Islam. There is Islamic paramilitary training all over the country. What happened in France will happen here.
We must fight the New World Order with all of our might.
I write this as an addendum, nearly two and one half years after the conclusion of this prophecy conference that hosted so many knowledgeable speakers. How amazing that Doug and Joe Hagmann, the interviewers throughout the conference, offered so much pertinent information themselves. As a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employee for twenty years, I agree entirely with their assessment of the corruption within the entire Justice Department. Furthermore, there is definite collusion amongst the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic groups, the State Department, Deep State representatives within the Trump administration, progressives, liberals, “Never Trump” supporters, Democrats and establishment Republicans. There are strong New World Order (NWO) supporters in each aforementioned group, who in addition are sympathetic and supportive towards advancing the cause of Islam around the globe. “The Swamp” is huge. I also believe that former director James Comey is a political hack and a weasel, who genuinely enjoys grandstanding. FBI employees have historically prided themselves on working quietly under the radar. Yes, Doug Hagmann is right. The FBI is greasing the skid for radical Islam’s training camps, mosques, and compounds throughout America.

I have no idea what additional proof one would need in order to discern that Rick Warren is a false prophet, pure and simple. He has the audacity to believe that the Purpose Driven movement is bringing in a New Reformation, hence as we follow this track, his thinking is that he is a modern day Martin Luther. To Rick, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Millenium are small potatoes, because like Ford, he has a better idea.
Perhaps he envisions himself as a Protestant Pope of some sort, and when he speaks “ex cathedra,” his words supersede Holy Writ. Rick’s time is spent hobnobbing with Muslim clerics, the Pope, various United Nations affiliates, involvement with a plethora of social concerns, meeting the leaders from all religions, and spending time with an additional assortment of political VIP’s throughout the world. (This sounds like a purely social “gospel” to…

Doug & Joe Hagmann, Paul McGuire, Jerry Robinson – Panel Discussion
The floor was later opened up to the audience for a question and answer session.
The theme is Economic Armageddon:
Paul McGuire: People intentionally try to confuse you about economics when what they say is not in your best interests. We must understand the foundation of the national and global economic system. The entire economic system is based upon an illusion. The system does not exist. The nature of the illusion is as magical as sorcery (as it says in the book of Revelation). It is hard to understand. The masses have always been controlled since the beginning of civilization, by a monetary and religious system. The monetary system is a controlled system. Paul has been on hundreds of economic debates on Fox News, CNN, etc. Most people act like they do not know what the Federal Reserve System is. The Federal Reserve System is built on a simple sorcery principle: they print money from nothing. There is no substance behind it. They control the world and the global economy by printing money from nothing. The economic system is spiritual – look at the dollar bill! It has hundreds of occultic symbols all over it. It screams at you in neon lights. It is not hidden, it is in plain sight. The incomplete pyramid has the all seeing eye of Lucifer, the New World Order or Order Of The Ages is written at the base of the pyramid, the Phoenix from Phoenicia is on the other side. The Phoenix is replete with occult symbolism. There are many more occult symbols there. The people at the highest level who control the economy, are in the Illuminati, occult, and they are Luciferean believers. The dollar is filled with spiritual symbols because the dollar is spiritual. The dollar is worth something only under the illusion that it is worth something. Mass events are scientifically engineered by an elite group in order to get people to act a certain way. There is a fight over new international currency. Who will control the world’s money? The dollar, Euro or another? This is an engineered crisis in order to bring a New World Order, and a new international currency. Revelation 13 refers to this situation.
Jerry Robinson, author of Bankruptcy Of Our Nation: We have a faith based monetary system. We have a fiat currency. There is nothing backing up the U.S. dollar. The Bible says the dollar is corrupt – “unjust weights and false balances.” When you print money out of thin air with no backing, you are printing “unjust weights and false balances.” Our money is debt, without intrinsic value. Our currency is an abomination and corrupt. We are already under judgment. The economy is going to implode and collapse. Our economy is an abomination. Our economy is being judged because it is an abomination, NOT because of the other sins of our nation. A lot of nations now, are avoiding the dollar. China is collecting gold for a gold backed currency. We are going to see a reduction of dollars and their value. We may see a Chinese Russian currency in the future, an Amero, or other regional currency. They will eventually collude into a single global currency but it will not happen overnight.
Paul McGuire: Mankind’s progress is based on occultic occurrences and events at incremental times in man’s history. i.e. The Great Depression. The economics in America are based on an illusion. The illusion comes from the Federal Reserve and the Central Bank. Our nation is being put into tremendous debt so the One World Government can control us – …”the borrower is slave to the lender.” The Federal Reserve owns us. “Debt” is the key to the economy control system. Our media is corporate controlled.
Jerry Robinson: Fox News is a part of the corporate controlled media. Saudi Arabia is the second largest shareholder in Fox News. The United States has no backing behind the dollar. In the early 1970’s, we made an agreement with Saudi Arabia that we would continue to underwrite their oil industry if they would use the dollar as an international currency in their business dealings. This illusion is all that is keeping us afloat. The dollar is a house of cards and will collapse one day. Free trade does not exist and cannot exist.
Issues Brought Up By The Audience:
The Federal Reserve is a private cartel owned by banks. G. Edward Griffin was one who exposed the Federal Reserve.
There is really only one party. The Democrats and Republicans are basically the same. There is not much truth to the right left paradigm. Two parties are an illusion. Fox News tells partial truths and they are just as bad as NBC and CBS. Paul McGuire no longer appeared on Fox News the minute he started telling the truth. He also lost his syndicated radio show.
There is a Sharia court in Texas and seventy eight in England. This was not related to the economy, but a very interesting point brought up by one in the audience.
The Old Left peaked at Woodstock, New York and at Haight and Ashbury, San Francisco; endorsing George McGovern for president. (When Richard Nixon resigned following the Watergate incident, they boasted bumper stickers that said: “Don’t blame me, I voted for McGovern”). They protested the Viet Nam War. They progressed from the counterculture groups of Beatniks and Hippies. They espoused peace, love and dope. LSD was taken by many of their more famous proponents. When I was in high school in the early 70’s, I started hearing the war cry against the “establishment,” not even knowing what it was. As a young man, I thought they were aimless and clueless, viewing life without any real understanding. They seemed like rebels without a cause. They were however peaceful, and accepted differences of opinion. They were often given to communal living, bypassing the institution of marriage. (“Marriage is just a piece of paper.” Remember?) Their “families” were loose knit groups, bearing names like Roadrunner or Moon Rocket. They were morally liberal, and a lot of their ethics, or lack thereof, went directly against the grain of our Judeo Christian heritage and the Ten Commandments. At this time, it did not seem that our entire culture was threatened but it was. Babies were aborted in great numbers; commencing this onslaught was the Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade. Nearly sixty million babies were murdered since this infamous ruling. Now we have violent illegal immigrants replacing them – I ask who is to blame? (Hosea 8:7 King James Version) “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” The Old Left was the base for the New Left, who share the same values but have taken their ideology several steps further.
Consider the New Left. They are Hippies on steroids, with a violent and relentless agenda. Other beliefs are not respected, and even allowed. They cannot accept “no” for an answer. They desire a nanny state resembling socialized Europe. Cradle to grave entitlement programs are on their agenda. Their poster children are Barack Obama, the Clinton machine and Bernie Sanders. Their endless meltdown since the November 8, 2016 election loss is indeed a microcosm of their ideology. Let us review the past seven months following Hillary Clinton’s incredible defeat: “Let us cuddle and drink hot cocoa. Let me lie in the street in the fetal position as I hold my teddy bear. May we break some windows, overturn cars and start fires downtown because our candidate lost. Cancel college classes and exams, and have group sessions of crying and pouting. The election was rigged. Let us have innumerable recounts! We need to challenge, change or even eliminate the electoral college and overturn the results. Trump’s victory is not at all legitimate. Trump was in collusion with Russia – (The never ending Russian collusion illusion and delusion). Impeach Trump! Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails disqualify our president. Etc., etc., etc. Yes, it is the gift that keeps on giving, and giving and giving.” A congressman from New England just threatened our president on Facebook. A comedian revealed a beheaded facsimile of our president for humor. In a recent play on Julius Caesar’s assassination, the cast decided instead to act out President Trump’s assassination. When the New Left does not get their way, there is no end to their plethora of infantile meltdowns. They desire the New World Order RIGHT NOW! The immanent danger of radical Islam on our nation is not even on their radar. Sanctuary cities for criminals are welcome, and there is no respect for American distinctiveness. People who disagree with them are homophobic or Islamaphobic. They have no desire of a peaceful protest, and want to shut down the entire voice of opposition. Their constituents are the Muslim Brotherhood, the Deep State, nearly all of the media, Black Lives Matter, Progressives, college students, a great many Democrats, and the leadership in Washington, D.C. that Donald Trump refers to as the swamp. This is a massive radical left wing movement that is on a mission to forever change the complexion of America. They do not like the Christian foundation upon which this nation was built. The left has always screamed “tolerance,” yet ironically they are totally intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them. The new left has torn down statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson. They desire to pursue the destruction of the statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson next. The current leftist movement constantly refers to “white privilege,” and this term has now morphed to “white supremacy.” They have taken over college campuses and will not even allow for freedom of speech.
As a boy and young man, I thought the Old Left were people out of touch with the values of America. The New Left however, bears little resemblance to the Old Left. They are on a mission to forever destroy our submission to the Ten Commandments, take away our freedoms, erase American distinctiveness, not allow American patriotism, nor celebrate our blessings and success. Any discerning Christian can feel the vice rapidly enclosing on us and threatening our freedoms and our way of life. If we survive as a nation, it will be the result of the Lord’s intervention. Pray without ceasing for our federal, state and local governments, our nation’s law makers and court systems, our schools, and for our president, but mostly…
Pray For Revival In America!
Blessings, Pastor Steve
