"And you shall know the truth,
and the truth will set you free."
(John; Ch.8, v.32)
In discussing my views concerning a future surprise world war involving a nuclear holocaust triggered by conflict in the Middle East, I have noticed that many people respond by saying I'm predicting the "end of the world". I then point out that I did not mention biblical prophecy. Yet, most people are quick to draw parallels between Christian predictions of an Apocalypse and world war three (of course, Jewish, Moslem, and most other world religions have their own prophetic versions of the Apocalypse). This is important because I personally do believe that the global conflict I expect is, indeed, that which is predicted in the Bible. In fact, while trying to determine what could cause the epic crash that now appears to be imminent, I, along with friends, went through what can only be logically classified as a private revelation that clued me into just how "The Crash" would most likely occur.
Specifically, the revelation I went through had to do with the seventh seal prophecy from the eighth chapter of the Book of Revelation. This prophecy is the key to the revelation of "The Truth" in the context of the Apocalypse (the word apocalypse literally means "revelation"). After the seventh and final seal is broken in the Book of Revelation, the Apocalypse is unleashed and "The Truth" is revealed. Thus, the meaning behind the seventh seal prophecy is of the utmost prophetic importance...
When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, (1) there was silence
in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the seven angels
who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
And another angel came and stood at the alter with a golden
censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers
of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; and
the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints
from the hand of the angel before God. Then the angel took the
censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on
the earth; and (2) there were peals of thunder, loud noises,
flashes of lightening, and an earthquake.
Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets made ready to blow them.
The first angel blew his trumpet, and (3) there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The second angel blew his trumpet, and (4) something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships destroyed.
The third angel blew his trumpet, and (5) a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter.
The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and (6) a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened; a third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night. Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in midheaven, "Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!"
1. The half hour of "silence in heaven" during which ICBM's would traverse their orbits before striking targets after being launched.
2. The thunderous reports, bright flashes, and earthquake associated with nuclear detonations.
3. The nuclear blasts of "hail and fire, mixed with blood" followed by raging fires that would consume much of the earth.
4. The nuclear explosions, "like a great mountain, burning with fire", all over the world's seas as ports, ships, and submarines are attacked.
5. The lethal contamination of water supplies by radioactive fallout ("Wormwood") for weeks after a nuclear war.
6. The blanketing of the sky by vast dust clouds after a nuclear war such that sunlight, moonlight, and starlight is obscured thereby causing a "nuclear winter".
Over the years my conviction has grown that this prophecy predicts a future nuclear war. First off, the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine helped reveal the truth behind the prophecy. This is because, as I later found out, the Ukrainian word for the bitter herb "wormwood", which poisons water in the seventh seal prophecy, is "Chernobyl" (easily referenced- see, for instance: 'Chernobyl' (1987), by Andrey Illesh).
If this were not enough, in February of 1991, in the middle of the Gulf War, a couple of friends and I had some rather remarkable experiences that I believe confirmed the meaning of the prophecy as well as indicated its imminent fulfillment. First off, on February 6th, I saw a special report of a chemical SCUD attack on Haifa Israel that did not exist (believe me, I checked it out fully; the report was never aired). Then, about a week later, I was with a friend of mine who had just become interested in Nostradamus and prophecies that might be connected with the Gulf War. After showing him some books I had on Nostradamus, I began reading him the seventh seal prophecy above. Just as I began reading it, we heard an air- raid siren followed by the bellowed percussion of a nuclear explosion. The authenticity of the experience led me to rush with my friend to a deep basement in a nearby building. From there I contacted the local fire department to see if any sirens had been sounded; however, none had. After returning to our original location, my friend and I began checking with others to see if anyone else had heard anything. No one else had. However, another friend of mine, who is very trustworthy, said that he had heard no air-raid siren that evening- he had heard one that afternoon. When I asked him whether or not it could have been a fire alarm, he responded: "No, it was distinctly an air-raid siren off in the distance".
Needless to say, these extraordinary experiences led me to conclude that the conflict in the Persian Gulf might somehow be linked to a future global nuclear war- an event that would fit the ultimate crash I have been anticipating. Thus, I began to critically reexamine the events that had been taking place in the Gulf, and I quickly realized there was something seriously amiss. In fact, all the inconsistencies and contradictions pointed to one logical explanation: the Soviets and Iraq were engaging in large-scale strategic deception (see my paper, "The Persian Gulf Deception"). The reason they would be doing this was clarified after examining the rather frightening conclusion of our national security analysts during the late-1970s and early-1980's: the Soviets were preparing to fight and win a nuclear war (see: Richard Pipes' "Why the Soviet Union Thinks it could Fight and Win a Nuclear War" in 'Commentary' (July, 1977), Dr. William Van Cleave's "Soviet Strategic Nuclear Forces and Goals: Deception and Surprise" in 'Mesmerized By The Bear' (1987), and/or 'Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War' (1979), authored by Joseph Douglas). Of course, with remarkable fear-induced irrationality, Western society has completely ignored the possibility that Gorbachev's "New Thinking" may have been the introduction of a total lie rooted in the unthinkable "Russian Idea" (see Alexander Yanov's 'The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000' (1987)). There is, however, sufficient reason to believe this is the case.
If you are wondering how it is that Western civilization and the world as whole could be so utterly deceived, I have a sensible explanation for you. After Jesus was crucified some 2,000 years ago, his message was spread across the world by way of the church. After a thousand years, Christianity became the dominant paradigm of society- an historical thesis. Then came the rise of Western civilization and rapid technological development. In the context of matter/spirit duality, this epoch of materialism necessarily involved a reaction against spirituality. Thus, over the past 1,000 years the "secular" worldview of science developed in opposition to the church and religion.
The opposing worldview that has emerged, what I refer to as the "secular paradigm", is the historical antithesis of Christianity. According to it, ours is a godless universe that started with a "Big Bang" and is flowing towards ever greater disorder and meaninglessness. This contradicts the idea that, since the moment of creation, God has carried out purposeful work to create ever greater organization and meaning. According to the secular paradigm, life is the result of a process of elimination involving "random mutation" and "natural selection". Contrariwise, Christians believe that life comes from a purposeful, orderly process of creation and divine selection. With regard to society, the secular worldview holds that, with the guidance of some imaginal "invisible hand", selfishness and competition give rise to "general equilibrium". This contradicts the Christian view that unselfish cooperation and the guidance of God bring forth social harmony.
All in all, the secular worldview that dominates today's world is the antithesis of Christ's worldview. Whereas Christ saw a harmonious universe created by God in which people must seek to cooperate and care for each other, modern man sees a chaotic, godless universe in which men create order by competing with each other and caring only about themselves. The problem is: What if Jesus told "The Truth"? Then man's current opposing worldview, the secular paradigm, is the opposite of truth, i.e., it is lies, false beliefs- popular, antichristian delusions. In this case, man, living according to a perspective that goes against reality, is doomed to commit systematic errors. Instead of bringing order to the world, he'll end up causing worse and worse disorder. Eventually his erroneous ways could end in self-destruction. Once science figured out how to split the atom, man had the ultimate means to such an irrational, suicidal End.
Assuming that Jesus did know "The Truth", he correctly anticipated what man would end up doing to the world. His "rational expectations" are what Christian prophecy is all about. Thus, the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, i.e., the outbreak of the Apocalypse, verifies what Christ taught the world some 2,000 years ago. We should accept our interdependence and love each other as Jesus loved us, lest we end up destroying ourselves. The lesson of love Christ demonstrated to the world by life example was not a suggestion for us to heed or ignore as we please. He fully understood a vital universal law, the Golden Rule, that must be obeyed so that human civilization can avoid self-destructive consequences. Rejecting the beliefs, values and way of life taught by Jesus makes about as much sense as ignoring the the law of gravity and walking off a cliff. Yet, it is just such senselessness that man is currently suffering from, thus leading to the most catastrophic error in human history: The Apocalypse.
