Charlemagne, Holy Roman emperor: Europe's Amazing Rise Foretold in Bible Prophecy

image from i2.wp.com

Bible prophecy clearly shows that Jesus Christ will return to establish the Kingdom of God, a literal world-ruling kingdom, on earth. This hope is so fundamental that Jesus instructed Christians to regularly pray, “Your kingdom come” (Matthew 6:10; Luke 11:2). Prophecies throughout the Bible give many details about Christ’s return and conditions in the world leading up to that event.

The rise of this final world superpower is foretold primarily in the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation. We’ll begin with what God revealed to the prophet Daniel in Old Testament times.

After years of decline, the Roman Empire indeed received a “deadly wound” in A.D. 476 when Rome’s Emperor Romulus Augustulus was deposed by Germanic tribes led by Odoacer. But that was not the end of the Roman Empire. As we will see, that “wound” was indeed healed and the empire would rise again—and again and again through history.

Prophecy One: America’s Death Knell

Knowing the identity of nations is the key to understanding end-time prophecy. (You can have this key by requesting a free copy of Herbert Armstrong’s book The United States and Britain in Prophecy.) Old Testament prophecies, for example, spring to life when we understand that the termIsrael is referring to modern-day America and the British Commonwealth.

The entire chapter of Ezekiel 33 is a tragic prophecy about Israel’s downfall. In verse 11, God laments the destruction of these people, saying “turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”

The Prophet Hosea saw a similar fate for the United States and Britain (Ephraim). “And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them” (Hosea 5:5). The Prophet Jeremiah also spoke of a time of unprecedented trouble in Jacob (also Israel, or the United States). “Alas! for that day is great,” he wrote, “so that none is like it: it is even thetime of Jacob’s trouble …” (Jeremiah 30:7).

According to each of these prophecies, we know it is the end time when the United States is stripped of its power and global supremacy and is overrun by its enemies. President Obama’s speech in Cairo was a sure warning that we now live in that time!

Curses-deut-28As one commentator noted in the London Times, he became the first Western leader since Napoleon to address Islam as a single bloc, thus legitimizing the Islamic extremist view that the world should be divided along religious lines. In his 54-minute, 6,000-word address, not once did the president use the word terrorism. His administration has carefully avoided using the term war on terror—opting instead for the obscurely worded “overseas contingency operation.” His repeated attempts to extend an olive branch to Iran and the rest of the Islamic world send an unmistakably clear signal to America’s enemies: The terrorists are winning. And they know it.

Jeffrey Kuhner, president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote about the global significance of the Cairo speech. “It will be remembered as the pivotal moment in history when the United States ceased to be a superpower,” he wrote. “Sapped of its self-confidence and sense of grandiose destiny, America chose the policy of appeasement over confrontation, lies over truth, illusion over reality” (Washington Times, June 13, emphasis mine throughout).

America’s position in the world, ideologically, morally, economically and geopolitically—especially in relation to radical Islam—has been declining for years. Obama’s capitulation in Cairo was a very public sign that America lacks the moral clarity to discern good and evil and the mental willpower to stand up against tyranny.

America’s enemies recognize weakness when they see it. The president’s overtures in Cairo, as sincere as they might be, will not result in better U.S.-Islamic relations, nor bring the people of the world together in peace. Instead, for all of his trouble, asAsia Times opined, the president will get “more megalomania from Iran, more triumphalism from the Palestinians, and less control over Iraq and Afghanistan. … It is hard to imagine any consequence except a steep diminution of American influence”(June 2).

The Future of Europe, according to the Bible

Broken Now, but will reform into The Beast of Revelation!


Age of schism in west...

Five hundred years ago a political and religious crisis tore Europe apart. Now the continent is entering another age of schism. It is no secret that the European Union is in severe crisis. Besides the challenge of Brexit, the established order is threatened by a range of other schismatics and heretics to the south, east and indeed within the Franco-German core. What is less well understood is that in many ways we have been here before – 500 years ago, when the Reformation tore Europe apart.

Around 1500, most of our continent was shaped by a single geo-ideological and geopolitical order, or at least a common imaginary. Roman Catholicism reigned supreme from the west coast of Ireland to the eastern borders of Poland and Lithuania, from Norway’s North Cape to the heel of the Italian boot. A wronged wife in Yorkshire could appeal to the papacy for justice if necessary. You had to go quite far east or south-east to encounter the rival Christian order of Orthodoxy in Muscovy and much of the Balkans. This was the result of an earlier schism in the church, creating a second Rome in Constantinople, and after the fall of that city a Third Rome in Moscow. Europeans referred to their continent as “Christendom”.

This order was already under some pressure. The Roman Church was generally perceived to be in crisis. Clerical ignorance and corruption, for example the sale of “indulgences”, were increasingly regarded as intolerable. Demands for reform were widespread. In England, one of the great realms of Europe, the common people chafed under clerical abuses, and the monarchy under papal constraints on its authority. Ever since the Middle Ages, the parliamentary statute of “praemunire” had made it illegal to sue for justice in a foreign court, at least with regard to high matters of state. When all was said and done, though, the sense of inhabiting a political commonwealth was deeply ingrained throughout most of the continent.

What the Bible Says About the Future of Europe:

image from cache.eupedia.com   Make no doubt about it, there will be a "strongman" of Europe. He will be a man, not a woman. When he appears (and I don't know when) he will convince the civilized world that he is the greatest person who will have ever lived. He will be more popular than Jesus, and will fool many people. In fact, Jesus said that unless God loved His elect, even they would be deceived! Paul calls this evil man "The man of lawlessness." The man of lawlessness in 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12 is an antichrist who will come on the world stage at the beginning of the Day of the Lord. This Day, sometimes called the “end times.”  He is given the title “man of lawlessness” because he will oppose God's Law, just as the Catholic Church and most so-called Christian Churches do today!   Daniel 7 speaks of this man as a “boastful” king who will “try to change the set times and the laws” (verses 11 and 25). He will come offering a false peace and prosperity to the civilized world and will with his media-star- personality, convince everyone that he is a great human being.   He will be able to perform fake miracles, bring nations together in a global government,  and  align religiously with the Roman Church and the Pope, the False Prophet, and also an Antichrist.  They will make a covenant with Israel for three and one-half years (cf. Daniel 9:27, where “seven” indicates seven years). In the middle of the seven years, the man of lawlessness will break his covenant with Israel, stop their sacrifices (Daniel 9:27), and enter the temple to set himself up as “god” and demand worship (2 Thessalonians 2:4). This is the “abomination that causes desolation” that Jesus spoke of in Mark 13:14.

Two beasts are described in Revelation chapter 13, one from the sea (vs. 1) and one from the land (vs. 11). With the beast out of the sea, we come to that one who, regardless of his claims as the white horse rider or peace maker, comes as a great source of darkness into the world. He comes not to save the world, but to damn the world. In essence, what we have in this chapter in the rise of the beast and the false prophet is nothing short of the ‘trinity from hell’ in that both are the product of the machinations of that old serpent, the devil or Satan.

My view, which is NOT BIBLICAL, but just a hunch, is that this strongman of Europe will ride in on a wave of populism which is now raging worldwide, but unlike what people needlessly fear in Donald Trump, this man (maybe another billionaire) will use Trump's "game plan" to fool the world. The big difference of course is that the main stream media will anoint him, as they did Obama, as a savior!  The media is evil, controlled by the prince of the airways (Satan) and will always get it wrong when it comes to predicting evil people.  So, again, in conclusion, I will not doubt for a minute that we may see, appearing on our TV screens, a liberal billionaire who will come to prominence in Europe.  He will probably be German (but maybe Italian of Germanic decent).  Isaiah chapter 10 predicts that the antichrist or beast is Assyrian.  Assyria IS modern Germany!   Dr. Herman Hoeh wrote in "Germany in Prophecy!": "When the ancient Greek writers wanted to distinguish the Assyrians from the Arameans or Syrians, the Greeks called the Assyrians, 'Leucosyri' - meaning 'whites' or 'blonds' as distinct from the very brunette Syrians who still live in Mesopotamia." (Plain Truth, Jan. 1963, p.17). By the time of Christ, the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder recorded that the Assyrians were now dwelling north of the Black sea (Natural History, IV, 12, p.183). By this time, they had moved north.  But they did not stop there, as Herbert Armstrong wrote in The United States and Britain in Prophecy: "The Assyrians - before 604 B.C. - left their land north of Babylon and migrated northwest - through the lands that are now Georgia, the Ukraine, Poland, and into the land that is called GERMANY today. Today the descendants of those Assyrians are known to us as the GERMAN people" (pp.143-144, 1980 ed.).

For centuries, the German people have dominated the heartland of Western Europe. Yet they are a people who know very little about their true origin - or at least refuse to know. The Germans themselves are responsible for hiding much of this knowledge, just as many tried to hide their past at the end of the Hitler era. Just as the modern-day Israelites are one family of people from many different tribes, so too are the German people today. They number well over 100 million people worldwide - most of them residing in Germany and Austria.

We know who the nations of the world are. This knowledge, from God's word, enables us to understand the news today, and why and where things will happen - what to expect - and everything we need to know.

The STRONGMAN of EUROPE will appear on the world stage and when it happens - TROUBLE is about to hit the fan.......


Don't buy the lie about the Crusades

image from jdotnetservices.com


Remember after 9/11, when Billy Graham's people decided the word "crusade" was too inflammatory? I don't remember the more benign term used for a time after that, but the thinking was, "crusade" might be offensive to Muslims.

That kind of thinking emboldens radical Islam. The imagery of the Crusades – in which large numbers of people in the Middle East swam in their own blood during the gruesome confrontations over Jerusalem – is often used by Muslims, who excel in propaganda. By the way – and this isn't meant as an afterthought – the Jews might have some unpleasant memories of the Crusades, as well.

Rodney Stark, though, in "God's Battalions," makes an argument he should be applauded for: The Crusaders were not expansionist and bullying; rather they were a reaction to Muslim hostilities. The idea that the Crusades were launched in reaction to Muslim aggressiveness is a story too long suppressed, and finally, we have a concise record of what really happened.

This is an engaging book, well-researched and expertly written. Stark represents the best of what happens when a gifted historian combines superb writing skill. One wonders if this book could be the basis of a documentary.

It is perhaps a surprise that what some would consider a conservative view is being published by HarperOne, but then again, all publishers realize today that with the economy the way it is, cash is a powerful lure; a strong book – which "God's Battalions" I is – can be comforting and profitable.

Politically correct history courses tell us that almost a thousand years ago, the Muslim world was a tolerant, advanced civilization in the Arabian desert. Think David Lean and Peter O'Toole as history professors.

Stark, though, paints a different picture, and the social scientist from Baylor makes a compelling case that is was the age-old aggressiveness of the Ishmaelites that brought Christian warriors to Jerusalem.

 

Stark begins by quite vividly painting a picture of Pope Urban II's speech in 1095, in a French meadow, in which he read from a desperate letter sent by the emperor of Byzantium, who was rightly concerned about the war-like Seljuk Turks – an army within 100 miles of Constantinople. Among other things, the torturing of Christians was becoming a battle tactic of the Muslims. I think this would sound familiar, right now, to Palestinian Christians in Bethlehem.

From there, Stark presents an engrossing tale of the myths and facts of the Crusades. For example, he says clearly that despite what some other historians have said, the Crusader armies were not made up of "the dregs of society" due to terrible economic conditions. Actually, says Stark, there was a period of economic growth in Europe during this time, and not only nobility funded the military excursions, but so did commoners.

Stark also addresses, in skillful fashion, the nuance of this sweeping story. Describing the brutality of a small contingent of Crusaders – "German knights" – who were bent on murdering Jews they found along the way, the bishop of Speyer sheltered that town's Jews (all but 12, who failed to heed warnings and were butchered), illustrating that down through history, while Christendom has a stained record with the Jews, many Christians have come to the aid of the Jews.

It is the encounters that the Crusaders had with Muslims hordes, however, that are most epic (a side-note for the immature reader: Several of the leaders of the Crusades had names that sounded like something straight out of Saturday Night Live: Walter the Penniless, Emicho of Leisingen and so forth).

Recounting an engagement near Tiberias between Crusader forces and the infamous Saladin, Stark adds rich texture to "God's Battalions":

"Then, as the sun rose and with the wind at their backs, Saladin's forces set fire to large collections of brush, and the smoke made it difficult for the Christians to keep track of their units," Stark writes. Carnage then ensued, and, "All of the Templars and Hospitallers taken captive were beheaded; the other captives were enslaved."

Stark does such a good job of fleshing out historical detail, it's difficult to name a favorite portion of the book. However, he shows us that truly, history repeats itself endlessly. In Chapter 10 ("Crusaders Against Egypt"), he shows the reader how critical this ancient land was to stability in the Middle East – just as we are learning in painful ways today.

"God's Battalions" is a wonderful historical record, and readers and historians alike should read it with the gusto it deserves, for the lessons contained in it are instructive for our time. Congratulations to Rodney Stark for harnessing history in such spectacular fashion.

When will the STRONGMAN of Europe Appear?

Are We Living in the Last Days?

by Bob Barney

 

 

Are We in the Last Days (Prelim 1985)01 One of the most important topics that anyone should understand about world events, the Bible and their future is the answer to this question: ARE WE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS.. Unfortunately the average Jane or Joe is bombarded with views of this event from either Hollywood or even worse modern Christian evangelism looking to line their pockets much more than trying to explain the word of GOD!  Today more than ever, people are talking about end times, and whether or not we are living during the very last days before Christ returns.  Don't be deceived, Christ predicted the signs to look for, and they are NOT yet here.
           
            Everyone has heard “the Gospel.” Many love Gospel music, Gospel names and even “sharing the Gospel”, but most of us don’t know what the word GOSPEL actually means!  Gospel is an old English word that just means “good news.” The Gospel is the Good News of God’s plan for mankind and YOU! Jesus was a newscaster! So too was John the Baptist, Peter, Paul and John the Apostle. Daniel, Jeremiah and even Moses were newscaster! Unlike Dan Rather, they got their news from God Almighty! One third of the Bible is prophecy, or FUTURE NEWS of what is going to happen in the world and when GOD returns to this world to establish a GOVERNMENT on Earth! Yes, Heaven is coming to you, you are not going to Heaven! Remember these words, “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  ON EARTH! God’s Kingdom is coming to Earth after the reign of man is over with. The exact order of this is given by Christ himself in Mathew 24.
 
            Jesus is plain about the end times. One, nobody knows the exact hour or time of the return of Christ. No man, no Angel and especiallynot a single Demon. So the next time you hear your favorite preacher tell you the rapture may come tonight realize that he is either: A) A fraud or B) Just ignorant! The truth is that since the time of Paul, we have been living in “the last days!” (Heb 1:2).  Even the Apostles of God did not know when Jesus would return, why should a TV preacher know?

French Generals warn of civil war due to creeping Islamism - The Beast is Rising in Europe

Europe is destined to become the BEAST of REVELATION.  Europe is going to beg for a STRONG MAN to take over- Another Caesar or Hitler type is coming to EUROPE- Watch Europe and the Middle East!

A coalition of retired French military officers is warning that civil war could come to the European nation because its government is failing to control mass migration and "creeping Islamism."

In a letter, the leaders pointed to the problems of cultural Marxism, runaway multiculturalism and the growth of no-go zones, neighborhoods where it is unsafe for non-Muslims to venture, noted Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute.

The letter came after a series of Islamic terror attacks, including the beheading of a teacher.

Kern explained there is "widespread public indignation over a French justice system compromised by political correctness — as evidenced by the refusal to prosecute an African immigrant from Mali who, while shouting 'Allahu Akbar' ('Allah is the Greatest'), killed an elderly Jewish woman by breaking into her home and pushing her off her balcony."

Why China is Not the Threat Hitler was --Europe and The Muslim world will be!

the Bible Says so

By Bob Barney

This may come as a surprise to many of our readers, because of all the media attention about China as our enemy, but believe it or not, like Russia, China is not the threat to America that Europe and the Middle East will be in our near future. Although China is an increasingly important player in global affairs there is however, very little evidence on how it is presented in the fake news media. This matters because even in today's increasingly interconnected world the media can often influence our perceptions of other countries, often lying about what they're covering.

Tom Fowdy, a British political and international relations analyst says "There's a certain narrative they are pushing in regards to China's actions, and it's time to shine the spotlight on what that is."  Fowdy goes on to say, "Its mainstream media transformed the subject into a matter of hysteria, creating a poisonous atmosphere with a relentlessly growing focus on Chinese influence and other stories which have incited growing paranoia, creating a grander picture that China is a threat."

When the US  “allowed” China to join the WTO, and develop its economy, our leaders hoped they could establish themselves in China, and get a total control of their economy for their own profits. That would have been easier if China had become a “democracy”, because democracies can easily be bought.

Problem is, China kept control of half the profits, and used them to develop its infrastructures, its schools and Universities, and so on. In a mere 30 years it has become a modern country. And now, even worse, there is an anti-corruption campaign going on.  Now the Americans realize, "hey, we couldn’t buy them, but now they are on their way to buy US!"

That is unacceptable.  So, let’s make them the “bad” guys. Let’s do our best to destabilize the country. And the ordinary American people?  Well, who cares about them…

I am not going to defend China here. They are a brutal regime that uses slave labor to make the products that the entire world needs.  They have over a billion workers that they need to keep employed or there will be riots and violence at an unpreceidented level. In order to do this, they need to keep the people working making cheap goods to sell to the entire world.  This is really their goal. Unlike what you are being fed on Fox News, China has never been a war-like people like Japan, Germany and Italy.  We want to demonize a country that is doing what we should have been doing all along, and that is a China-First policy.  It's a smart policy. Trump tried to do the same here, but the Deep State, which loves turmoil and countless wars would have none of it.

China is Not Nazi Germany

I hate to spring this news on you here, but in 1939, Germany did not depend on the United States to buy its goods.  The plain truth is that it was the other way around. Germany and Japan needed to buy goods from us, which we, siding with Britain, refused to sell them!  We were fighting an economic war with Germany and Japan long before we declared war.

The Hindenburg bursts into flames above Lakehurst, New Jersey, on May 6, 1937.

Hindenburg designer Hugo Eckener sought to use helium, a non-flammable lifting gas. However, the United States, which had a monopoly on the world supply of helium and feared that other countries might use the gas for military purposes, banned its export to Germany. 

The cause:

Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected to an unprecedented third term as president of the United States. This victory gave him the political clout to openly support Great Britain in her struggle against Germany, but by the spring of 1941, the British were in desperate straits both economically and militarily. Under Roosevelt’s order, the United States began using its warships to provide limited escort to merchant ships sailing for Britain, especially ships carrying weapons that America supplied through the Lend-Lease Act, which Roosevelt signed into law on March 11, 1941.

For a very insightful interview on how the USA and The Soviets caused Japan to strike Pearl Harbor. It is HERE

Many will be surprised at the evidence. Also, in 1939, the U.S. begin to directly challenge continued Japanese aggression in China. That year, the U.S. announced it was pulling out of the 1911 Treaty of Commerce and Navigation with Japan, signaling a coming end to trade with the empire. Japan continued its campaign through China and in 1940, Roosevelt declared a partial embargo of U.S. shipments of oil, gasoline, and metals to Japan.

The move forced Japan to consider drastic options. It had no intention of ceasing its imperial conquests and it was poised to move into French Indochina. With a total American resource embargo likely, Japanese militarists began looking at the oil fields of the Dutch East Indies as possible replacements for American oil. That presented a military challenge, however, because the American-controlled Philippines and the American Pacific Fleet — based at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii — were between Japan and the Dutch possessions.

In July 1941, the U.S. completely embargoed resources to Japan and froze all Japanese assets in American entities. American policies forced Japan to the wall. With the approval of Japanese Emperor Hirohito, the Japanese Navy began planning to attack Pearl Harbor, the Philippines, and other bases in the Pacific in early December to open the route to the Dutch East Indies.

Unlike Germany and Japan which depended on oil and goods from America, China does not. They need to sell to America and Europe to keep a revolution from starting in their homeland, a revolution I BELIEVE will eventually occur!

the Bible says the Europe and The Muslim World will be our enemies:

A Beast is rising in Europe, and if you are a Plain Truth Reader, you know that the Bible promises that the evil coming antichrist will arise out a United States of Europe!  Yes, Europe, under the Holy Roman Church is the end time beast of Revelation, and will become the enemy of the USA.  You need to know just WHO the players are in today's world!  Click Here  and you will be amazed just who the nation's are today, as prophesied is the Bible!  You can not know what is going to happen unless you know who we are, and who "they" are!   Macron's France, by the way is a lost tribe of Israel named Rueben! And they, like in WWII, will be enslaved by the coming antichrist! The Bible clearly identifies Europe as the Beast of Revelation and the King of the North. For years, Bible scholars who know this has been waiting for Europe to reawaken it's Nazi past and find a strongman to lead a newly yet to be formed Holy Roman Empire, with recognition from the Pope and led by Germany.  Modern day Germany are the people that the Bible refers to as the Assyrians.  

 

 


How Germany's Antichrist culture conquered America

A Beast is rising in Europe, and if you are a Plain Truth Reader, you know that the Bible promises that the evil coming antichrist will arise out a United States of Europe!  Yes, Europe, under the Holy Roman Church is the end time beast of Revelation, and will become the enemy of the USA.  You need to know just WHO the players are in today's world!  Click Here  and you will be amazed just who the nation's are today, as prophesied is the Bible!  You can not know what is going to happen unless you know who we are, and who "they" are!   Macron's France, by the way is a lost tribe of Israel named Rueben! And they, like in WWII, will be enslaved by the coming antichrist!

In a recent article, I noted that my boomer generation was the last to experience normalcy in our childhood years – in the sense that normalcy equates to things operating according to their nature as opposed to being artificially manipulated. At the start of our generation, in 1946, we had intact natural families, protected by the institution of marriage, bolstered by the active culture-wide discouragement of promiscuity and adultery. Boys were boys and girls were girls, and we celebrated that existential delight with the French exclamation "viva la difference!" We cherished babies as a gift from God and respected Him as a matter of cultural consensus. Our churches were full, and our jails were empty.

Science was grounded in provable facts and reproducible processes consistent with God's natural order. At the community level we had vibrant natural economies integrating family farms, diverse small businesses and local industries. We primarily ate natural foods, saw health and healing as a natural process, and enjoyed the natural society of mutual cooperation for the common good.

We saw competition in sports and business as beneficial because we also had a code of ethics that demanded fairness and rewarded merit. Journalism was an honorable profession that we trusted to be our eyes and ears for monitoring current events. To a far greater extent than today we the people had control over our lives and our government.

By the final year of the boomer babies, 1964, all that had changed, and for reasons most don't realize and won't discuss today for fear of "Woke" backlash.

The chief culprits were German communist immigrants who had fled Hitler's rising "fascist" National Socialism by the tens of thousands in the 1920s and '30s. Through the war years (in cooperation with homegrown Marxists), they gained ideological control of Hollywood, much of the news media, the Democratic Party and many other culture-shaping institutions because they served America's anti-Nazi interests. Post-war, they shifted their focus to overthrowing our Judeo-Christian culture. The "Red Scare" of the 1950s was an authentic and serious crisis now revised/erased from the history books by the Marxist winners.

TRENDING: Vulgar, politicized Grammys suffer serious ratings crash as Americans tune out

Germany had been the chief exporter of Marxism since its native son Karl Marx launched it in the mid-1800s. Germany was the birthplace of "higher criticism" in Christian theology, which created the modern "religious left," and exported its Bible-diluting heresies to America, corrupting nearly every mainstream seminary. Germany was the homeland of the highly manipulable and manipulative "soft sciences" like Freud's psychology.

Germany (along with London and New York) was a world capital of eugenics long before Hitler. And it was the birthplace of "Cultural Marxism" at the Frankfurt School, whose founder Herbert Marcuse was the evil genius behind the rise in America of the left's ultimate weapon, the "sexual revolution," and its LGBT activist armies. Marcuse began his American take-down campaign as an employee of the OSS (forerunner to the CIA), and then a high luminary of academia who sowed the seeds of the 1960s cultural revolution in one after another of the elite universities.

As I document in my book "The Pink Swastika," Germany was also the birthplace of the LGBT movement under Karl Henrich Ulrichs in the 1860s, which in turn gave birth in the early 1900s to what would later be called Nazism. The homosexual subculture in Germany was so pervasive and so powerful by the Weimar era of the 1920s that sodomy was known worldwide as "the German vice," and extreme and varied sexual perversions virtually defined German culture in the major cities. Opposing camps of LGBTs literally dominated both the Nazi Party and the Communist Party as they vied viciously for total power.

America's first LGBT organization (in 1924) was a Chicago chapter of the German "Society for Human Rights" (whose most famous member was Ernst Roehm, founder of the Nazi "storm troopers"). That Chicago offshoot was launched by German American soldier Henry Gerber upon returning from post-WWI service in Germany. And the so-called "father" of the American "gay rights" movement, Marxist Harry Hay, was seduced into homosexuality as a pubescent teen by a grown-up former boy-toy of one of Gerber's co-founders. Hay's network of "gay" Marxist cell groups, and "in the closet" allies such as Alfred Kinsey, literally spearheaded the "sexual revolution" as a weapon against the cultural primacy of marriage-based heterosexual normalcy in America – the literal fulfillment of Marcuse's plan.

How did Germany become such a center of evil in the world? I contend in my book "Dynasty of Darkness" that it was related to the excavation and acquisition by Germany of the Pergamum Altar, identified in Revelation 2 as the "Seat of Satan … where Satan dwells." I have chronicled how Kaiser (Caesar) Wilhelm II, the final emperor of Second Reich, considered his reconstruction of the Pergamum Altar in Berlin as his highest achievement, and how the process precisely tracks Germany's descent into great evil, including Fredrich Nietzsche's infamous declaration that "God is dead," escalating through the German instigation of both World Wars, and the rise of the demonic European Union (the model for the one-world government of the Antichrist) upon the reunification of Berlin (after the collapse of the Soviet "Evil Empire," which possessed the altar as a property in East Berlin from 1961 to 1990).

Nazis on the Pergamum Altar.

I also show how the United States' possession of it from 1945 to 1961 (as the dominant Allied power occupying Germany) tracks precisely with the two landmark SCOTUS rulings that officially shifted America off its biblical foundation onto the quicksand of Secular Humanism, and empowered militant atheists to purge Christianity from public life. During that same short window we also established the United Nations' global headquarters in Manhattan on land donated by the Rockefellers.

I wrote this column to convey three truths. First, that our national collapse into depravity and delusion is entirely orchestrated by wicked men whose actions can be tracked historically if one dares to do so. Second, that what we are experiencing today is literally the rise of the last-days Antichrist Kingdom, meaning our duty of evangelism has never been more urgent. And third, that America's "normalcy" before the 1960s was a reflection of our collective conformity to "the Laws of Nature and Nature's God." That witness of the natural world is our bridge to evangelize the lost post-boomer generations (and many of our own peers) who have been thoroughly conditioned to reject and even mock traditional evangelistic methods.

9,000 children died in Ireland's brutal homes for unmarried mothers and babies run by the Catholic Church

9,000 children died in Ireland's mother and baby homes, report says

Nine thousand children died in Ireland's brutal homes for unmarried mothers and babies run by the Catholic Church in the 20th century, a damning report has revealed (pictured: survivor Carmel Larkin at a memorial in Co. Galway today, main; radio host Niall Boylan, bottom right; a mother and daughter pay their respects today, top right; babies at a home in Dublin inset top; and children at the Tuam home in 1924, inset bottom). In total, 15 percent of the 57,000 children at the 18 institutions investigated by the Mother and Baby Home Commission died between 1922 and 1998. The report published today said the homes 'provided refuge' for the mothers when they had nowhere else to turn and found that blame 'rests mainly with the fathers of their children and their own immediate families.' But the women faced appalling emotional torment at the hands of the nuns - forced to work scrubbing floors while being called 'fallen,' 'sinner', 'dirt' and 'spawn of Satan.' The Commission said that the high deaths rates among infants were 'probably the most disquieting feature of these institutions.'


The United States of Europe will become a super power- the Bible says so!

A Beast is rising in Europe, and if you are a Plain Truth Reader, you know that the Bible promises that the evil coming antichrist will arise out a United States of Europe!  Yes, Europe, under the Holy Roman Church is the end time beast of Revelation, and will become the enemy of the USA.  You need to know just WHO the players are in today's world!  Click Here  and you will be amazed just who the nation's are today, as prophesied is the Bible!  You can not know what is going to happen unless you know who we are, and who "they" are!   Macron's France, by the way is a lost tribe of Israel named Rueben! And they, like in WWII, will be enslaved by the coming antichrist!

Europe must 'become an Empire' to rival China and the US, a French minister said yesterday. 

Economics and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the EU must project its power around the globe to promote peace and protect the environment.

He told German newspaper Handelsblatt: 'It's about Europe having to become an Empire, as China is. And how the US is. But a peaceful empire that relies on green growth. Neither China nor the US, who are leaving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, are on this line.'

Economics and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire (right with EU President Jean-Claude Juncker) said the EU must project its power around the globe to promote peace and protect the environment

Asked why he used the controversial word empire, Mr Le Maire clarified: 'Do not get me wrong, I'm talking about a peaceful empire that's a constitutional state. I use the term to raise awareness that tomorrow's world will be shaped by the powerful.

Europe: Rape victims accused of racism

An increasingly popular idea is that whenever races clash, only minorities can be victims. The notion is hardly limited to the recent riots in America. Elements of such thinking often appear in other contexts.

British women, for instance, including rape victims who drew attention to "Asian" (Pakistani and South Asian) sex grooming gangs, are also being attacked by the "woke" establishment.

Earlier this month in the UK, Sarah Champion, a Labor politician and MP for Rotherham (the epicenter of sex grooming), was accused of "fanning the flames of racial hatred" and "acting like a neo-fascist murderer." Her crime? She had dared to assert that "Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls."

Something's Fishy - Or Where Did that Pope's Hat Come From????

Editor's Note from Robert R. Barney... The following is not written by me. It is the study of some of the traditions of both the Catholic and Protestant churches by the Reverend Alexander Hislop, in his book "The Two Babylon's" from the 19th century. For those who are truly interested in the pagan origins of many of the things our churches do, this book is exceptional! The following is about the Pope's Mitre (Hat).

The Sovereign Pontiff The Two Babylon's Alexander Hislop

Chapter VI
Section I
The Sovereign Pontiff

The gift of the ministry is one of the greatest gifts which Christ has bestowed upon the world. It is in reference to this that the Psalmist, predicting the ascension of Christ, thus loftily speaks of its blessed results: "Thou hast ascended up on high: Thou hast led captivity captive; Thou hast received gifts for men, even for the rebellious, that the Lord God might dwell among them" (Eph 4:8-11). The Church of Rome, at its first planting, had the divinely bestowed gift of a Scriptural ministry and government; and then "its faith was spoken of throughout the whole world"; its works of righteousness were both rich and abundant. But, in an evil hour, the Babylonian element was admitted into its ministry, and thenceforth, that which had been intended as a blessing, was converted into a curse. Since then, instead of sanctifying men, it has only been the means of demoralising them, and making them "twofold more the children of hell" than they would have been had they been left simply to themselves.

Very early, indeed, did the bishop of Rome show a proud and ambitious spirit; but, for the first threecenturies, their claim for superior honour was founded simply on the dignity of their see, as being that of the imperial city, the capital of the Roman world.

When, however, the seat of empire was removed to the East, and Constantinople threatened to eclipse Rome, some new ground for maintaining the dignity of the Bishop of Rome must be sought.

That new ground was found, when, about 378, the Pope fell heir to the keys that were the symbols of two well-known Pagan divinities at Rome. Janus bore a key, and Cybele bore a key; and these are the two keys that the Pope emblazons on his arms as the ensigns of his spiritual authority.The priest, therefore, that in the name of Hermes explained the Mysteries, must have been decked not only with the keys of Peter, but with the keys of "Peter-Roma." Here, then, the famous "Book of Stone" begins to appear in a new light, and not only so, but to shed new light on one of the darkest and most puzzling passages of Papal history.

I have said that the Pope became the representative of Janus, who, it is evident, was none other than the Babylonian Messiah. If the reader only considers the blasphemous assumptions of the Papacy, he will see how exactly it has copied from its original. In the countries where the Babylonian system was most thoroughly developed, we find the Sovereign Pontiff of the Babylonian god invested with the very attributes now ascribed to the Pope. Is the Pope called "God upon earth," the "Vice-God," and "Vicar of Jesus Christ"? The King in Egypt, who was Sovereign Pontiff, * was, says Wilkinson, regarded with the highest reverence as "THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE DIVINITY ON EARTH."

* Wilkinson shows that the king had the right of enacting laws, and of managing all the affairs of religion and the State, which proves him to have been Sovereign Pontiff.

Is the Pope "Infallible,"and does the Church of Rome, in consequence, boast that it has always been "unchanged and unchangeable"? The same was the case with the Chaldean Pontiff, and the system over which he presided. The Sovereign Pontiff, says the writer just quoted, was believed to be "INCAPABLE OF ERROR," * and, in consequence, there was "the greatest respect for the sanctity of old edicts"; and hence, no doubt, also the origin of the custom that "the laws of the Medes and Persians could not be altered." Does the Pope receive the adorations of the Cardinals? The king of Babylon, as Sovereign Pontiff, was adored in like manner. **

* WILKINSON'S Egyptians. "The Infallibility" was a natural result of the popular belief in regard to the relation in which the Sovereign stood to the gods: for, says Diodorus Siculus, speaking of Egypt, the king was believed to be "a partaker of the divine nature."

** From the statement of LAYARD (Nineveh and its Remains and Nineveh and Babylon), it appears that as the king of Egypt was the "Head of the religion and the state," so was the king of Assyria, which included Babylon. Then we have evidence that he was worshipped. The sacred images are represented as adoring him, which could not have been the case if his own subjects did not pay their homage in that way. Then the adoration claimed by Alexander the Great evidently came from this source. It was directly in imitation of the adoration paid to the Persian kings that he required such homage. From Xenophon we have evidence that this Persian custom came from Babylon. It was when Cyrus had entered Babylon that the Persians, for the first time, testified their homage to him by adoration; for, "before this," says Xenophon (Cyropoed), "none of the Persians had given adoration to Cyrus."

Are kings and ambassadors required to kiss the Pope's slipper? This,too, is copied from the same pattern; for, says Professor Gaussen, quoting Strabo and Herodotus, "the kings of Chaldea wore on their feet slippers which thekings they conquered used to kiss." In kind, is the Pope addressed by the title of "Your Holiness"? So also was the Pagan Pontiff of Rome. The title seems to have been common to all Pontiffs. Symmachus, the last Pagan representative of the Roman Emperor, as Sovereign Pontiff, addressing one of his colleagues or fellow-pontiffs, on a step of promotion he was about to obtain, says, "I hear that YOUR HOLINESS (sanctitatem tuam) is to be called out by the sacred letters."

 

 

So much for Peter's chair and Peter's keys. Now Janus, whose key the Pope usurped with that of his wife or mother Cybele, was also Dagon. Janus, the two-headed god, "who had lived in two worlds," was the Babylonian divinity as an incarnation of Noah.

 

Dagon, the fish-god, represented that deity as a manifestation of the same patriarch who had lived so long in the waters of the deluge. As the Pope bears the key of Janus, so he wears the mitre of Dagon. The excavations of Nineveh have put this beyond all possibility of doubt. The Papal mitre is entirely different from the mitre of Aaron and the Jewish high priests. That mitre was a turban. The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians. There were two ways in which Dagon was anciently represented. The one was when he was depicted as half-man half-fish; the upper part being entirely human, the under part ending in the tail of a fish. The other was, when, to use the words of Layard, "the head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed." Of Dagon in this form Layard gives a representation in his last work; and no one who examines his mitre, and compares it with the Pope's as given in Elliot's Horoe, can doubt for a moment that from that, and no other source, has the pontifical mitre been derived. The gaping jaws of the fish surmounting the head of the man at Nineveh are the unmistakable counterpart of the horns of the Pope's mitre at Rome.

ROME — Pope Francis has compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod who massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine while trying to kill the baby Jesus, a Jesuit journal revealed Thursday.

Speaking with his brother Jesuits during his recent visit to Thailand, the Argentinian pope minced no words in his thinly veiled condemnation of the U.S. president and his administration, suggesting that like a modern-day Herod, Mr. Trump separates families at the border while allowing drugs to freely flow into the country.

Who Is The Beast of Revelation?

The Bible clearly identifies Europe as the Germany, Holy Roman Emp[ire  For years, Bible scholars who know this has been waiting for Europe to reawaken it's Nazi past and find a strongman to lead a newly yet to be formed Holy Roman Empire, with recognition from the Pope and led by Germany.  Modern day Germany are the people that the Bible refers to as the Assyrians.  

By

Recently German chancellor Angela Merkel reminded us of that German fixation, when she made some astounding statements to the German media that revealed what many Americans had long ago surmised.

Merkel all but announced that Germany, or for that matter Europe itself, is no longer really an ally of the United States: “There is no doubt that Europe needs to reposition itself in a changed world. . . . The old certainties of the post-war order no longer apply.”

She insisted that Germany views the democratic United States as not much different from autocratic Russia and Communist China: Urging Europe to present a united front in the face of Russia, China, and the U.S., she said, “They are forcing us, time and again, to find common positions.” And Merkel concluded that therefore Germany must find “political power” commensurate with its economic clout to forge a new independent European path.

In other words, in the calculus of the supposedly sober and judicious Merkel, the democracy that saved Europe twice from a carnivorous Germany — and Germany once from itself and once from becoming a Soviet vassal — is now similar to the world’s two largest authoritarian dictatorships, nations that not so long ago murdered respectively 30 million and 70 million of their own citizens. And how odd a sentiment for someone who grew up in Communist East Germany, a nightmarish state whose collapse was largely attributable to the Reagan-era effort to bankrupt and roll back the Soviet empire.   MORE

Why it matters

The European parliamentary election is the second-largest democratic exercise in the world after, with citizens across 28 nations voting for their new representatives. More than 400 million people are eligible to take part. Only India’s national elections are bigger.

The vote has major implications for the functioning of the bloc and the future of national politics in each member state. The EU Parliament has a say on policies affecting things such as agriculture and trade. It comprises 751 MEPs (members of the European Parliament).

The Bible predicts that Europe will be one of the last superpowers on earth, at the time of Christ's return.  It will be led by the BEAST OF REVELATION, called the King of the North in Daniel chapter 11.  We know it as the revised Holy Roman Empire, which receives it's power from anti-christ; the pope.

THE RISE OF THE BEAST OF GERMANY!

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s leading Jewish organization expressed alarm Thursday over footage of flag-waving neo-Nazis in self-styled uniforms marching through an eastern German town on May Day unhindered by police. Footage of the march Wednesday prompted widespread outrage in Germany and calls for authorities in the state of Saxony, where far-right sentiment is particularly strong, to step in.“The images of the neo-Nazi march by The Third Way party in Plauen are disturbing and frightening,” said Josef Schuster, the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews.
