Saudis to Build First Nuclear Research Reactor

This is the problem with the Deep State and the media's attack on Saudi Arabia.  This nation is destined to become part of the "King of the South" found in chapter 11 of Daniel in the Bible.  The last thing we need right now is to help that happen.  This is a ploy to build a nuclear bomb - WHICH THEY WILL DO- and Trump needs to stop the anti-Saudi rhetroic and keep Arabia in the fold as long as possible.

The Times of Israel reports: Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Monday laid the foundation stone for the kingdom’s first nuclear research reactor, state media said, as the kingdom seeks to diversify its energy mix.

The reactor was among seven projects launched by the prince during a visit to Riyadh’s King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology, the official Saudi Press Agency reported. SPA offered no details on when the research or non-power reactor — typically used for research, development and education purposes — would be built and at what cost.

Saudi Arabia currently draws on oil and natural gas to meet its own fast-growing power demand and desalinate its water.

Macron Calls for ‘Real European Army’ to Protect EU from U.S

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!

French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated calls for a image from 2.bp.blogspot.comEuropean Union army, this time saying that it is needed to protect the bloc from China, Russia, and even the United States.

 

The progressive leader, a proponent of greater EU federalisation which will result in the reduction in sovereignty for European nations, told Europe 1 Monday night that the bloc needs a “real European army”.

“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said, according to Agence France-Presse.  MORE


No End in Sight for Germany’s New Military Budget

The revival of The Holy Roman Empire in the making.. Germany prepares for a massive military increase.

image from images.slideplayer.com

Germany’s military wants more money. Exactly how much money it will receive is a divisive subject within the new government.

United States President Donald Trump continues to demand that Germany spend 2 percent of its gross domestic product on its military. Doing so would cause German military spending to parallel that of Russia’s at $69 billion.

In 2017, Germany increased its military budget by 3.5 percent to $44.3 billion. It pledged to boost the defense budget by around $6.5 billion over the next four years. But in light of “outstanding requirements and need for modernization,” the Defense Ministry describes the additional $6.5 billion as “inadequate.”

German newspaper Bild reported on April 29 that Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen is trying to hold the federal government to ransom to get more cash. In 2019, she says, the military budget should be increased by $3.5 billion; in 2020, by $4.7 billion; and in 2021, by another $5.9 billion. Those increases would raise Germany’s defense budget by $14 billion, which would bring it up to nearly $70 billion.

“This is about the future capability of our armed forces and Germany’s ability to stand by our allies,” von der Leyen said.

A recent revelation should give von der Leyen’s demand even greater urgency. Der Spiegelreported that only four out of Germany’s 128 Eurofighters are currently ready for combat. But concerns were already on the rise earlier this year. The British Telegraph reported:

A parliamentary watchdog warned in February that equipment shortages are putting Germany’s ability to meet its nato commitements “in question.” Only 95 of the German Army’s 244 Leopard main battle tanks were operational at the time because of maintenance issues. None of the German Navy’s six submarines were operational at the end of last year, and only nine of a planned 15 frigates were in service. None of the Luftwaffe’s 14 A400M transport aircraft were airworthy on several occasions last year, and replacement aircraft had to be chartered to bring serving troops home.

If she doesn’t get her way, von der Leyen is threatening to end joint arms deals with France and Norway. Germany is currently building submarines for Norway, while Norway provides antiship missiles. Germany’s arms industry is also working on six C130 Hercules aircraft for a joint military transport squadron with France. If von der Leyen pulls out, the German arms industry will suffer and Chancellor Angela Merkel will have to deal with the diplomatic fallout.    Read More


Shocking satellite photos show entire towns obliterated after Guatemala's 'Volcano of Fire'

Giant clouds of superheated smoke and ash burned people alive and buried entire towns in a deadly volcanic eruption in Guatemala that killed almost 100 people.

Shocking satellite photos of before and after Sunday's eruption show whole suburbs wiped off the map as hundreds of houses collapsed when tons of falling ash crushed them.

What was once a collection of green canyons, hillsides and farms was reduced to grey devastation by fast-moving avalanches of super-heated muck that roared into the tightly knit villages on the mountain's flanks. 

Volcan de Fuego, meaning 'Volcano of Fire' spewed a 'curtain' of ash 20,000ft into the air and sent rapid pyroclastic flows through at least seven nearby towns in the biggest eruption for four decades.

DESTRUCTION OF NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR TEST SITE - JUST FOR SHOW?

A satellite image purportedly shows a North Korean nuclear test site  CREDIT: EPA/AIRBUS / 38 NORTH / HANDOUT

The dismantling of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in May might have been little more than a show.

In a move widely perceived as a concrete gesture of goodwill, North Korea demolished the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the presence of a few dozen foreign journalists, but no experts or international investigators. The North detonated explosives inside the tunnels, supposedly disabling the test site, but U.S. intelligence officials told CNN the blasts were not strong enough to completely collapse the tunnels.

“The explosions seem to have been too small” to have truly destroyed the test site, an international arms control official explained to reporters, “The fact that journalists were reportedly only around 500 meters from the explosions is a good indication that these were small blasts. And the amount of dust leads us to believe that they were quite superficial.” This assessment is reportedly based off of relevant seismic data.   MORE

Christianity 'End times fatigue': evangelicals find biblical case for Israel less compelling

Forward By Bob Barney:   The problem with all of these religious "experts" is that they are false prophets. Jesus warned against these con artist, disguised as ministers of the gospel.  They actually are preaching a false gospel, to deceive and confuse. Don't be fooled by these demon inspired teachers.  God clearly tells us that we can not know the time that Christ will return.  He gave us signs, many of which are being fulfilled now, but the end is NOT YET, it may not even be near!  America, is lost Israel, whenever you see a prophecy about Israel in the Bible, it NEVER means the tiny Jewish nation that falsely calls themselves Israel...    The USA, Canada, UK, France, Denmark, Scandinavia, and The Netherlands (Holland) are the nations of "lost" Israel.   The modern Jewish state today in the Bible is JUDAH!   Read Your Bible, don't listen to demons!

What still must happen BEFORE CHRIST RETURNS!

Now today's Story

For many on the Christian right, the state of Israel has been seen as a key to fulfilling prophesy. A new generation has other ideas

This week, the Trump administration completed its move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

At the opening ceremony, two of the American speakers were evangelical superstars: Pastor Robert Jeffress, the author of several doomsday booksabout Israel, and John Hagee, who interpreted recent lunar eclipses as evidence that the end times were nigh. The Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro, meanwhile, declared that Trump had “fulfilled biblical prophecy”.

The ceremony coincided with massive protests, in which 60 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces.

Thousands of miles away, in her home outside Colorado Springs, Kimberly Troup sat in a cluttered basement office. She is an evangelical Christian who takes to heart the Bible verse in which God speaks of the Jewish nation: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.”   MORE


EXPERTS WARN CONGRESS: EMP WOULD KILL ‘90% OF AMERICANS’ – CONSIDER NUKE FIRST STRIKE

Forward: The Plain Truth has covered this topic for years now. This event is probably going to happen in our lifetime-from the sun, or from an enemy!

 


Why Is The Middle East Always Going To Be In YOUR Future

Editor's note: This article was the very first one ever published on The Plain Truth back on December 14th 2007!

By Bob Barney
Armageddon
We have war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq, war is maybe coming to Iran, Israel and Syria. It has been this way since before you were even born. Why? After all, we had war in Europe in 1914 and 1940, but not today. War in Japan in the forties, but not in the past fifty years, so why has every decade seen a problem in the Mid-East? Is it Oil? Is it another reason.

In the late 1940's, the USA was the world's largest oil producer. We did not need oil from the middle east, yet war erupted between the newly formed Israel and its Arab allies. The same thing happened again in the fifties, and the sixties and we still really didn't need the Arab's oil. By 1973 we did need their oil and thus today, everyone without a view on history mistakenly assumes that war in the middle east is about oil. IT IS NOT!

This war has nothing to do with oil, or George Bush or even The United States per say; it has everything to do with religion and about God and God's role in world events. This article can be read anytime in the future and there will still be strife in the middle east. The strife ends, according to the Bible ONLY after Christ returns and not a day before. We realize that we claim to be a news site, and we are, but if there is a God, and it is the God of the Bible and if Jesus Christ is that God of the Bible, then what he has to say is news, is it not?

How to Build a Simple Faraday Cage for EMP Survival

This article could save your life!

Of all of the reasons to prepare, one that we all need to take seriously is the possibility of a catastrophic EMP, or electromagnetic pulse. This is a frequent topic in many post-apocalyptic novels and something that most of us are aware of, even if we do not completely understand the science.

 

As I wrote way back when in the article Prepping for an EMP and Solar Flares:

To be blunt about it, an EMP, if large enough, would affect the entire planet.  In an instant, civilization as we know it would change as we get swept backward in time by a century or two.

What is an EMP?

An electromagnetic pulse or EMP, is an abrupt burst of electromagnetic radiation.

To start with, an EMP is caused by certain types of high energy explosions.  A nuclear explosion, for example, will surely cause an EMP.  Likewise, an EMP can be the result of a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field.  Or, as I have mentioned before, it can be the result of Coronal Mass Eject (CME) from solar activity.  But perhaps most sobering of all, is the possibility of a man-made EMP weapon that is purposely deployed in order to wreak devastation on our planet.  Scary stuff.

Regardless of the trigger, an EMP can be devastating to the power grid, resulting in rapidly changing electrical fields that will create fluctuating electrical currents and wild voltage surges.  Bottom line?  The electronic gizmos we have come to rely on would be toast.  The microchips would be fried or so severely damaged that they would become useless.

So what would life be like following a massive EMP event or episode?  There would be no power, no transportation systems, no communication systems, no banking, no internet, and, no surprise, no food and no water delivery systems.  This would truly be an End of The World As We Know it situation.

Ask yourself these questions:

What if the power went out and never came back on?  Could you fend for yourself?

Could you keep yourself warm in the winter and cool in the summer?

Where would you find food?

What would you use for money if credit cards and ATM’s no longer worked?

How would you get from one place to another without transportation?

How would you wash your clothes?

How would you keep yourself healthy if sanitation systems were no longer functional and medicine could no longer be manufactured.

And the biggest question of all, how would you communicate with the rest of the world?

GERMANY’S LARGEST PUBLIC TV NEWS BROADCASTER: SYRIA CHEMICAL ATTACK “MOST LIKELY STAGED”

A senior correspondent for German state media broadcast ZDF heutestunned his European audience during a report from on the ground in Syria when he gave a straightforward and honest account of his findings while investigating what happened in Douma. The veteran reporter, Uli Gack, interviewed multiple eyewitnesses of the April 7 alleged chemical attack and concluded of the testimonials, “the Douma chemical attack is most likely staged, a great many people here seem very convinced.”

It appears that all local Syrians encountered by the German public broadcast reporter were immediately dismissive of the widespread allegation that the Syrian government gassed civilians, which the US, UK, France, and Israel used a pretext for launching missile strikes on Damascus.

ZDF heute: The world continues to puzzle over whether the banned chemical weapons were used in Douma. ZDF correspondent Uli Gack is in Syria for us: “you were in a large refugee camp today and talked to a lot of people – what did you hear about the attack there?” Gack responded, “the Douma chemical attack is most likely staged, a great many people here seem very convinced.”

'Army of Islam' would be world's biggest military

FROM WND.COM

WASHINGTON – When Turkey’s semi-official newspaper Yeni Safak called for urgent action in forming a 57-nation “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack Israel, a suggestion undoubtedly approved with at least a wink and nod by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, it would signal the possible intent to create the largest military force on the planet – one nearly as large as the total population of the Jewish state.

The report came just ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and was published under the headline, “What if an Army of Islam was formed against Israel?” It was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

But it wasn’t a rhetorical question. It was actually a suggestion to combine the military forces of all Islamic countries to overwhelm the Israeli army in manpower, budget and equipment – even boasting with statistics.

The United States of Islam forming?

The Bible says we will have a superpower - a formation of Islamic States - this may be a start.

On December 12, 2017, ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul,  the Turkish daily Yeni Şafak, which is close to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his ruling AKP party, published an article  titled "A Call for Urgent Action,"[1] which also appeared on the paper's website under the title “What If an Army of Islam Was Formed against Israel?"[2] The article called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint "Army of Islam" to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It notes that such a joint army will greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment and budget, and presents statistics to prove this. It also advocates establishing joint bases for the army's ground, air and naval forces that will arrive from all over the Muslim world to besiege Israel, while noting that Pakistan, as the only nuclear country, has "a special status" among the OIC countries. An interactive map provides information on military forces stationed in various locations and the role they can play in the potential joint Muslim attack on Israel.

The Source Of The Yeni Şafak Article: The SADAT Company Website

The main points of the article are taken from the website of the Turkish SADAT International Defense and Consulting Company, which provides consultancy on defense and warfare, both conventional and unconventional, and on military organization, training and gear. The company has an agenda of promoting pan-Islamic military cooperation. According to its mission statement, it seeks "to establish defense collaboration and defense industry cooperation among Islamic countries, to help the Islamic world take its rightful place among the superpowers by providing... strategic consultancy and training services to the militaries and homeland security forces of Islamic countries."[3]

According to Israeli security sources, the SADAT company is involved in aiding Hamas, and seeks to assist – with funds and military gear – the creation of a "Palestine Army" to fight Israel

The RAPTURE? Don't bet your life on it

Sometime ago I listened to a very charismatic and famous personality talking about an extra ordinarily popular doctrine in contemporary Christian circles. He related to the interviewer that at any moment he and many others will be raptured away and the world would then be plunged in a tribulation for seven years.
After the commercial break, he went on to relate that Jesus would come and there would be  a Millennium of peace here on planet earth. I wondered to myself, 'how do you reconcile the two?' I thoroughly searched the Bible, but could not find such a scenario. 
 
Some further research led me to the source of such a teaching. Amazingly, it was developed some five hundred years ago, long after the Bible was written. There was a specific purpose for its formulation and proclamation. Needless to say, it has achieved its goal with resounding success.

Fortunately, Jesus Christ had warned against such falsehood some two thousand years ago. Learn more.

How North Korea could kill 90 percent of Americans

By: Ambassador R. James Woolsey, who was the Director of Central Intelligence from 1993-95. AND  Dr. Peter Vincent Pry who is chief of staff of the Congressional EMPEMPEMP, Commission, served in the House Armed Services Committee and the CIA.

image from cdn.images.dailystar.co.ukThe mainstream media, and some officials who should know better, continue to allege North Korea does not yet have capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons. False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not “demonstrated” that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a U.S. city.

Yet any nation that has built nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, as North Korea has done, can easily overcome the relatively much simpler technological challenge of warhead miniaturization and reentry vehicle design. Indeed, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has been photographed posing with what appears to be a genuine miniaturized nuclear warhead for ballistic missiles. And North Korea does, in fact, have two classes of ICBMs—the road mobile KN-08 and KN-14—which both appear to be equipped with sophisticated reentry vehicles. 

Even if it were true that North Korea does not yet have nuclear missiles, their “Dear Leader” could deliver an atomic bomb hidden on a freighter sailing under a false flag into a U.S. port, or hire their terrorist allies to fly a nuclear 9/11 suicide mission across the unprotected border with Mexico. In this scenario, populous port cities like New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, or big cities nearest the Mexican border, like San Diego, Phoenix, Austin, and Santa Fe, would be most at risk.

A Hiroshima-type A-Bomb having a yield of 10-kilotons detonated in a major city would cause about 200,000 casualties from blast, thermal, and radiation effects. North Korea has tested a nuclear weapon having an estimated yield of 20-30 kilotons. The Defense Department assesses that on January 6, 2016, North Korea may have tested components of an H-Bomb. H-Bombs are much more powerful than A-Bombs and can produce much greater casualties—millions of casualties in a big city like New York.   MORE


'Body count will be in the tens of MILLIONS' North Korea DESTRUCTION warning

Editor's note:  I would say possibly even 100 million dead in a matter of days if Japan is struck.

John Hallam, a UN nuclear disarmament campaigner, warned the greatest threat facing the world now is an impending nuke conflict. 

He said that there are concerns that US President Donald Trump could attack North Korea's underground nuclear tests facilities, which would have devastating consequences.

Mr Hallam said any direct bombing action of North Korea must be prevented, saying that although Kim Jong-un would lose a war, it would still cost lives.

Nuclear war warningGETTY

WARNING: The body count will be in the tens of millions in the event of a nuclear war:

“What would happen next would be the incineration of the DPRK by the US or maybe China, with a body count in the millions or tens of millions, and with the fallout drifting over South Korea, China, and Japan,” he said.

His comments come as the world braces itself for World War 3.

Everywhere from Japan to the United States are drawing up plans for mass evacuations and fallout risks as the first shot of a nuclear missile looks increasingly likely.  MORE


Israel Minister expressed wish for “Third Temple” to replace Al-Aqsa Mosque

Forward by Bob Barney: This is just the start. In the present time, this will not happen. But the Bible tells us that a third Temple will happen!  When it does, you will then know that the END TIMES are very near....  Keep Watching happenings in Jerusalem. God's words are THE PLAIN TRUTH!

The Israel Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel on Friday expressed his wish to see the construction of a “Third Temple” in place of the Al-Aqsa Mosque that is currently occupying the temple mount. Uri Ariel said “The first Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, the second Temple in 70 CE, and ever since the Jewish People have been mourning its loss.”

 

He then went on to say “Al-Aqsa Mosque is currently in place of the temple, despite the temple being much holier than it. Al-Aqsa Mosque is only the third most holy mosque in Islam.” “Now that Israel has once again become a Jewish sovereign state, the desire to rebuild the Temple is growing stronger and strong” he added.

WARS and Rumors of WARS: Kremlin warns the U.S. Fears of WWIII

Russia 'one step from war' with U.S. after Syria airstrike

Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev denounced Donald Trump for attacking 'the legitimate government of Syria' and for allegedly breaking international law without the approval of the UN. The US President warned he would do it again after unleashing a surprise attack on the Syrian regime with a massive show of firepower. In the first direct American raid on Bashar al Assad's forces, Mr Trump authorised the firing of 59 cruise missiles at a military airfield. Officials said it was retaliation for Assad's use of chemical weapons and would 'deter' further atrocities. The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said that her country had taken 'a very measured step'. She added: 'We are prepared to do more but we hope that will not be necessary.'


Another Satanic Cult - Matthew 24 in today's News....

Anne Hamilton-Byrne (pictured right) was the glamorous, charismatic and delusional leader of the notorious Australian sect dubbed The Family. One of the very few female cult leaders, she convinced herself and up to 500 followers she was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. Under the influence of LSD, Hamilton-Byrne believed an apocalyptic war was imminent and that she had a duty to collect children from birth in preparation for a new world. She gathered young boys and girls - some through shonky adoptions, others born to cult members - and raised them as her own on a property in Lake Eildon in central Victoria in the 1970s and 1980s. 'We've received the call - and great things will be done,' she said. The identically dressed children (left and inset), with bleached blonde hair shaped into the same bob, were allegedly bashed, starved and injected with LSD by Hamilton-Byrne and other cult leaders in terrifying sect initiation rituals.

MARK OF THE BEAST!!! - Updated!

---- By Mike Exton (July 30, 2016 Edition)

image from marianneclements.orgIn the book of Revelation (the last book of the Holy Bible) we are sternly warned against receiving the mark of the BEAST (i.e. the Antichrist!). But what exactly is the MARK OF THE BEAST? And does this mark have anything to do with the NAME of the BEAST or the number 666? Or, is the mark of the Beast something totally different & separate from the name of the Beast and the number 666? And what exactly is the name of the Beast anyway? Is it an individual, a nation, a group of nations, or a church? And what about this mark—is it a LITERAL, PHYSICAL MARK? Or does it instead have a figurative, symbolic meaning? 

Let’s start off in our quest to answer these questions by first turning to Revelation 13:16-17. Here we are told that the Beast “required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a MARK on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that MARK, WHICH WAS EITHER THE NAME OF THE BEAST OR THE NUMBER [666] REPRESENTING HIS NAME” (NLT). So this Scripture makes it perfectly clear that the mark of the Beast is simply either the NAME of the Beast or the NUMBER that represents his name. Therefore, having the MARK of the Beast on you is the same as having the NAME of the Beast on you (or the NUMBER that represents his name—666!). 

NUMER OF THE BEAST—666! 

But why the number 666? How does this number represent his name? Well, let’s let the Bible answer that question. Revelation 13:18 (LB) — “…the numerical values of the letters in his name add to 666.” This Scripture plainly shows that 666 is just the NUMERICAL SUM VALUE of the NAME of the Beast! For example, take the name “VIX.” If we use “Roman Numerals” then V = 5, I = 1, & X = 10. Then if we add up the numerical value of each letter of this name (5 + 1 + 10) we get 16. Therefore, Vix couldn’t possibly be the Beast because his name only adds up to 16 (while the name of the beast will add up to 666). But if Vix isn’t the Beast, who is?

WHO IS THE BEAST?

So WHO is this Beast (i.e. the Antichrist)? Is it a United European Superpower (a revived “Holy” Roman Empire) as some teach? Or is the Beast the LEADER of this revived system? The Beast is symbolic of BOTH—both the empire and its leader! But first and foremost it stands for its LEADER. To prove that it stands for the end-time political leader of this soon-coming system let’s turn to another Scripture in the book of Revelation. Revelation 19:20—Then the BEAST was captured, and with him the false prophet…. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (NKJ). This Scripture clearly shows that the Beast represents an end-time INDIVIDUAL, for both he and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire!

LITERAL, PHYSICAL MARK?

But what exactly is the mark of the Beast, the mark of this end-time political leader? Will it be a PHYSICAL, LITERAL MARK (or is this mark just a metaphor, having some kind of hidden, mystical meaning)?

The mark of the beast will DEFINITELY be a literal physical mark! In Revelation 13:16 & 14:11 several different translations of the Bible (GW, NOG, EXB, NEB, & the JB) state that the mark of the Beast will be “BRANDED” on human beings. The AMPC, NABRE, & the EXB state that the mark of the Beast will be STAMPED on people. But I like the way the Living Bible translates these two verses the best, as it declares that the mark of the Beast will be “TATTOOED” on humans! But regardless if the mark of the Beast is branded, stamped, or tattooed, all of these translations unanimously agree that the mark will be a LITERAL PHYSICAL MARK that others will easily be able to see!

RECEIVING MARK = ALLEGIANCE TO SATAN!

If you read the book of Revelation very carefully (especially chapter 14) you will notice that anyone who WILLINGLY receives the mark of the Beast will be severely punished by God. But God most certainly will NOT punish someone who has this mark PHYSICALLY FORCED upon them, nor will He punish someone who UNKNOWINGLY receives this mark (as some conspiracy theorists teach)! The person has to KNOWINGLY, WILLINGLY ACCEPT THE MARK.

 

But anyone who WILLINGLY AND KNOWINGLY allows the mark of the Beast to be placed on his or her body (either on their right hand or on their forehead) will be going directly against God! Instead of obeying their Creator, they will instead be obeying Satan! They will in essence be pledging their ALLEGIANCE and their loyalty to Satan the devil (see Rev. 13:16 in both the AMP & EXB translations of the Bible)! And those who do so will be sternly punished by God! And they will be without excuse, for not only will there be two witnesses (or prophets) who tell them not to worship the Beast (or his statue) or receive his mark, but an angel from heaven will also command the inhabitants of the world not to do so (Revelation 14:9)!

NAME OF THE BEAST? 

So, what is the name of the Beast? And who will this end-time political leader be? Whoever he is, one thing we know for sure, the letters of his name will add up to 666! But can anyone think of a better name than ROMAN?

First of all, “ROMAN” can be translated as “LATEINOS” in the Greek language. (But why use the Greek language? Because most of the New Testament was originally written in Greek—including the book of Revelation). In the Greek language “L” represents the number 30, “A” is 1, “T” is 300, “E” is 5, “I” is 10, “N” is 50, “O” is 70, and “S” is 200. Add them up (30 + 1 + 300 + 5 + 10 + 50 + 70 + 200) and what do you get? 666!

Secondly, if his name were “ROMAN,” it would be similar to the false trinity doctrine as it would represent three things in one. Not only would it be the name of this end-time political leader, but it also would represent the ROMAN Empire as well as the ROMAN (Catholic) Church.

WARNING! 

No matter what you do in the future, NEVER (under any circumstances whatsoever!) receive the mark of the Beast or worship him (i.e. the Antichrist) or his statue!!!

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard... the Antichrist is coming... The man of sin... the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped... He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God” (1 John 2:18 NKJ; 2 Thess. 2:3-4 NKJ; 2 Thess. 2:4 NLT).

“Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was granted to him to make war with the saints [TRUE Christians] and to overcome [conquer] them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life...” (Rev. 13:6-8 NKJ).

“If anyone worships the beast [i.e. the Antichrist] and his image [i.e. his statue], and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. And he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb [i.e. Jesus Christ]. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Rev. 14:9–11 NKJ).

Where Does Russia Fit in End-Time Bible Prophecy?

image from www.ucg.orgMore than two decades after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia is very much back in the news—and not in a good way. Recent aggressive moves are raising fears of a renewed Russian expansionism. How might this play out in Bible prophecy?

Russia has been in the news a lot lately—mostly for negative reasons. Ukraine, once a part of the Soviet Union, has been rocked by turmoil from Russian-backed factions. In 2014 the Crimean peninsula, also part of Ukraine, was taken over and annexed by Russia, violating a 1994 treaty in which Russia had committed to respecting Ukraine’s existing borders.

There is good news for Russia—and the rest of the world. Jesus Christ is returning to put an end to human politics, greed and war.

Now a part of Eastern Ukraine is in armed conflict, and Ukrainian troops are fighting pro-Russian forces aided and armed by Russia. Europeans and other neighbors are quite alarmed by this aggression, and they fear it can spill over to other European territories neighboring Russia, such as Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Fearing more Russian aggression, the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, recently called for the formation of a united European army, since “a common army among the Europeans would convey to Russia that we are serious about defending the values of the European Union” (Andrew Sparrow, “Jean-Claude Juncker Calls for EU Army,” The Guardian, March 8, 2015) .

Is Russia preparing for nuclear war?

Putin May think so - but in reality all he is doing is pushing Europe to Go Nuclear!

In yet another troubling sign for America's tense relations with Russia, U.S. intelligence officials say Putin has began construction on new nuclear-proof underground bunkers.

Russia began building 'dozens' of underground bunkers across the country several years ago, the Washington Free Beacon reported citing US officials.

The U.S. and Russia have been working together to get rid of their nuclear weapons since the end of the Cold War, but the revelation coupled with Russia's recent surge in missile production suggests they are preparing for conflict.

'Russia is getting ready for a big war which they assume will go nuclear, with them launching the first attacks,' Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon nuclear policy official told the Free Beacon. 'We are not serious about preparing for a big war, much less a nuclear war.' 

Few details about the new nuclear bunkers have been released, but Russian state-run media says they are being built in Moscow as part of a new national security strategy. 

Russia built several similar underground bunkers during and right after the Cold War both in Moscow and in the Ural Mountains. 

Russia's new nuclear defense strategy is reportedly costing the country billions, and there are questions about whether some of that money may have come from U.S. aid.   

U.S. intelligence officials say authorities in Russia are building new underground bunkers to survive a nuclear war. Above, a Cold War-era nuclear missile silo in Saratov, Russia 

Mark of the Beast

By Mike Exton 

image from www.nachtkabarett.comWhat exactly is the Mark of the Beast? And does this mark have anything to do with the Name of the Beast & the number 666? Or, is the Mark of the Beast something totally different & separate from the Name of the Beast and the number 666? And what exactly is the Name of the Beast anyway? Is it an individual, a nation or group of nations, or a church? And what about this mark—is it a literal, physical mark? Or does it instead have a figurative, symbolic meaning?

Let’s start off in our quest to answer these questions by first turning to Revelation 13:16-17.  “He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name” (NLT).

Besides what is stated in Revelation 13:16-17 there are six other Scriptures that discuss the Mark of the Beast and ALL six of these Scriptures use the words mark & name interchangeably! In other words they are synonymous with each other! They mean exactly the same! Having the Mark of the Beast on you is the same as having the Name of the Beast on you (or the number that represents his name—666).

NUMBER OF THE BEAST

Revelation 13:18— “…the numerical values of the letters in his name add to 666” (LB).

image from i1.wp.com666 is just the numerical sum value of the Name of the Beast! 

For example, take the name “Vix.”

Using Roman Numerals: V = 5 I = 1 X = 10 

Then if we add up the numerical value of each letter of his name we get 16. Therefore, Vix couldn’t possibly be the Beast because his name only adds up to 16, while the name of the beast will add up to 666. 

 

Holy Roman Empire or LEADER of the Holy Roman Empire?

So what is this Beast? Does it represent the “Holy” Roman Empire as some teach OR does it represent the end-time LEADER of this revived system?

The Beast is symbolic of BOTH! Both the empire and its leader! But first and foremost it stands for its LEADER. To prove that it stands for the end-time political leader of this soon-coming system let’s turn to:

Revelation 19:20—Then the BEAST was captured, and with him the false prophet…. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (NKJ).

This Scripture clearly shows that the beast represents an end-time individual, for both he and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire! 

Literal, Physical Mark OR Figurative, Symbolic Meaning?

But what exactly is the Mark of the Beast, the mark of this end-time political leader? Will it be a physical, literal mark OR is this mark just a metaphor, having some kind of hidden, mystical meaning?

The mark of the beast will definitely be a literal physical mark! In Revelation 13:16-17 the Jerusalem Bible (as well as the New English Bible) both state that the mark of the beast will be “branded” on human beings, while the Living Bible declares that the mark of the beast will be “tattooed” on humans—clearly showing that the mark will be a literal physical mark that others will easily be able to see!

Receiving Mark = Outward Acceptance of Satan & His System

If you read the book of Revelation very carefully (especially chapter 14) you will see that anyone who WILLINGLY receives the mark of the beast will be punished by God. 

God most certainly will NOT punish someone who has this mark PHYSICALLY FORCED upon them, nor will He punish someone who UNKNOWINGLY receives this mark (as some conspiracy theorists teach)! The person has to knowingly, willingly accept the mark.

Anyone who willingly and knowingly allows the mark of the beast to be placed on his or her body (either on their right hand or on their forehead) will be going directly against God! They will be obeying Satan instead. They will in essence be pledging their allegiance and their loyalty to Satan the devil! And those who do so will be severely punished by God! And they will be without excuse. For not only will there be two witnesses (or prophets) who tell them not to worship the beast or receive his mark, but an angel from heaven will also command the inhabitants of the world not to do so (Revelation 14:9)! 

WHO is the Beast?

So, WHO is this Beast? Who will this end-time political leader be? Whoever he is, one thing we know for sure, the letters of his name will add up to 666! But can anyone think of a better name than ROMAN?

First of all, “Roman” in the Greek language (“Lateinos”) does indeed add up to 666

Secondly, if his name were “Roman,” it would be similar to the false trinity doctrine. It would represent three things in one. Not only would it be the name of this end-time political leader but it also would represent the Roman Empire as well as the Roman (Catholic) Church.
