The Sixth Trumpet: ISIS Angels of Destruction




 

Revelation 9:13 Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 one saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And this is how I saw in the vision the horses and those who sat on them: the riders had breastplates the color of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone; and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceed fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which proceeded out of their mouths. 19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads, and with them they do harm.

20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; 21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.

Roman Empire

 

Uriah Smith describes the rise of the Ottoman Caliphate as being the historical fulfillment of the 6th trumpet.  He explains that the Euphrates river watered the Ottoman Empire and thus helps to identify the territory described in the 6th trumpet.  He presents that the four angels likely represented the four principal sultans of the empire, which were situated at Aleppo, Iconium, Damascus, and Bagdad. He says, "when the sixth angel sounded, it was commanded to take off the restraints which had been imposed on the nation, by which they were restricted to the work of tormenting men, and their commission was enlarged so as to permit them to slay the third part of men..."  

 

He discusses that the establishment of the power of the Islamic nation (state) of Turkey was acknowledged by Constantine in 1449 when he said "I cannot reign unless you permit," and says that “from the time of this voluntary submission of the Greeks, Ottoman supremacy began and the four angels were loosed for ‘an hour, a day, a month, and a year, to slay the third part of men.’”

 

Let this historical fact be carefully examined in connection with the prediction given above. This was not a violent assault made on the Greeks, by which their empire was overthrown and their independence taken away, but simply a voluntary surrender of that independence into the hands of the Turks. The authority and supremacy of the Turkish power was acknowledged when Constantine virtually said, "I cannot reign unless you permit."

 

Using prophetic time (one day represents a year, as the God identifies in Ezekiel 4:6 when giving a prophecy in which a day represents a year), he presents the calculation that for “an hour, a day, a month, and a year” would represent a period of Ottoman supremacy lasting for 391 years and 15 days.  That is because one year in Bible prophecies is counted as three hundred and sixty days (which if each day represents a year that would be three hundred and sixty literal years); one month in Bible prophesies is counted as thirty days (if each day represented a year that would be thirty years); the one “day” mentioned would be one year.  So, if you add all those years together it is 391 years so far.  As for the “hour” mentioned, since an hour is one twenty-fourth part of a day (because there are 24 hours in each day), so it would represent one twenty-fourth part of a literal year, which is fifteen literal days.  So as we said, he presents the calculation that for “an hour, a day, a month, and a year” would represent a period of Ottoman supremacy lasting for 391 years and 15 days. 

 

Revelation 9:16 says the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them."  Uriah Smith discusses this as seeming to represent a number nearly innumerable.  He describes, "Innumerable hordes of horses, and them that sat on them!”  And says, “Gibbon thus describes the first invasion of the Roman territories by the Turks: 'The myriads of Turkish horse overspread a frontier of six hundred miles, from Taurus to Erzeroum; and the blood of 130,000 Christians was a grateful sacrifice to the Arabian prophet.' Whether the language is designed to convey the idea of any definite number or not, the reader must judge. Some suppose 200,000 twice told is meant, and, following some historians, they find that number of Turkish warriors in the siege of Constantinople. Some think 200,000,000 to mean all the Turkish warriors during the three hundred and ninety-one years and fifteen days of their triumph over the Greeks."

 

He comments on the description of verse 17 "having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone," saying; "The first part of this description may have reference to the appearance of these horsemen. Fire, representing a color, stands for red, "as red as fire" being a frequent term of expression; jacinth, or hyacinth, for blue; and brimstone, for yellow. And these colors greatly predominated in the dress of these warriors; so that the description, according to this view, would be accurately met in the Turkish uniform, which was composed largely of red, or scarlet, blue, and yellow. The heads of the horses were in appearance as the heads of lions to denote their strength, courage, and fierceness; while the last part of the verse undoubtedly has reference to the use of gunpowder and firearms for purposes of war, which were then but recently introduced."

 

Here we notice that Uriah Smith acknowledges even in the historical fulfillment this reoccurring theme that through the 7 trumpets God is chronicling the development human inventions for destructive power. 

 

Uriah Smith goes on in his description, saying "As the Turks discharged their firearms on horseback, it would appear to the distant beholder that the fire, smoke, and brimstone issued out of the horses' mouths..."  He further says, "These verses express the deadly effect of the new mode of warfare introduced. It was by means of these agents, - gunpowder, firearms, and cannon, - that Constantinople was finally overcome, and given into the hands of the Turks."

 

He goes on to describe details of the prophesy; "In addition to the fire, smoke, and brimstone, which apparently issued out of their mouths, it is said that their power was also in their tails. It is a remarkable fact that the horse's tail is a well known Turkish standard, a symbol of office and authority. The meaning of the expression appears to be that their tails were the symbol, or emblem of their authority ...This supremacy of the Mohammendans over the Greeks was to continue, as already noticed, three hundred and ninety-one years and fifteen days. Commencing when the one hundred and fifty years ended, July 27, 1449, the period would end Aug. 11, 1840."

 

"Judging from the manner of the commencement of the Ottoman supremacy, that it was by a voluntary acknowledgment on the part of the Greek emperor that he reigned only by permission of the Turkish sultan, we should naturally conclude that the fall or departure of the Ottoman independence would be brought about in the same way; that at the end of the specified period, that is, on the 11th August, 1840, the sultan would voluntarily surrender his independence into the hands of the Christian powers, just as he had, three hundred and ninety-one years and fifteen days before, received it from the hands of the Christian emperor, Constantine XIII."

 

He explains the remarkable way in which the end of this time period was predicted through the calculation of the 391 year and 15 day prophecy; "This conclusion was reached, and this application of the prophecy was made by Elder J. Litch in 1838, two years before the predicted event was to occur...From the first publication of the calculation of this matter in 1838, before referred to, the time set for the fulfillment of the prophecy - Aug. 11, 1840 - was watched by thousands with intense interest. And the exact accomplishment of the event predicted, showing, as it did, the right application of the prophecy, gave a mighty impetus to the great Advent movement then beginning to attract the attention of the world."

 

The Ellen G. White Estate reports more detail about the event which occurred on that date which signaled the loss of Ottoman power; “Rifat Bey, the Sultan's representative arrived in Egypt on 11 August 1840. He was there to conclude an agreement proposed at the London convention of 15 July 1840 by which Great Britain, Austria, Prussia, and Russia agreed to unite with Turkey--at Turkey's request--in compelling Mehemet Ali, the rebellious pasha of Egypt, to accept their terms of settlement of the Egyptian question.”  That the Ottoman Empire had to form a union with major world powers in order to deal with Egypt showed its waning power and that it was no longer acting in independent strength.

 

United States

 

This is another example of how closely the modern fulfillment of the 7 trumpets prophecies matches the historic fulfillment and/or description.  Just as Uriah Smith explains that the territory of the Ottoman Empire is identified in the prophecy because it was watered by the Euphrates, this also identifies the territory involved in the modern re-establishment of the caliphate with ISIS.  Wikipedia describes the river this way: “Originating in eastern Turkey, the Euphrates flows through Syria and Iraq to join the Tigris in the Shatt al-Arab, which empties into the Persian Gulf” ("http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphrates"). Turkey was the seat of the Ottoman Empire, Syria and Iraq are currently the seat of the Islamic State.  If you look at a map of the Euphrates River it flows right through all of these three territories.

 

The description in Revelation 9:14-15 gives you the verbal image of some type of destructive entity that has existed in the territory of the Euphrates which has been kept in restraint from killing people and is suddenly released, or given more power to accomplish its purposes.  A terrorist group, such as ISIS, which is bent on killing and terrorizing and also hopes to take over the world, would fit this description perfectly.

 

It seems more than coincidence that the acronym “ISIS,” as the group is often called, which stands for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is also the name of an Egyptian goddess which is often depicted with wings like an angel.  So, we can easily picture how the 6th trumpet’s description of the release of this demon-like angel (as demon’s are fallen angels) chronicles the rise to power of the ISIS caliphate.

 

While the Ottoman warriors fulfilled the 6th trumpet description by fighting with firearms while on horseback and wearing colorful uniforms, the ISIS fighters are often depicted riding on trucks (horsepower), which have external shells of varying colors, upon which they have mounted machine guns or other weapons, out of which comes “fire and the smoke and the brimstone.”

 

It says that the “number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million.” The unique thing about the ISIS “army” is that it is made up of supporters all over the world, and specifically promotes the radicalization and indoctrination of individuals, encouraging them to perform lone-wolf acts of terror to show support for ISIS.  One PEW poll from November of 2015 indicated that even though the majority of Muslims are not favorable to ISIS, anywhere between 63 million and over 200 million supporters might exist in just 11 countries that were polled. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/11/pew_poll_between_63_million_and_287_million_isis_supporters_in_just_11_countries.html

 

Regarding the prophecy’s mention of the angels being released at on the “hour and day and month and year,” as we have mentioned, in the historic fulfillment this was calculated as a time period by adding the prophetic values of each of the time periods mentioned (using the 1 day = 1 year principle that is given for prophecy interpretation in Ezekiel 4:6). But the verse also seems to be written in such a way that it could also be referring to one specific time or moment of God’s designation, one certain “hour, day, month and year,” on which the 4 angels were to be released.

 

Could this make sense in context of how God has done things in the past?  I believe it could because He has often done things on a certain “hour, day, month and year” of His choosing.  For example, Jesus died on a certain hour, day, month and year; at a specific time of day according to the time of the sacrifice, and on the Passover day, in a year following the prediction of Daniel about when the messiah would be cut off, etc.

 

The last chapters of Daniel tell us that there is an appointed time for the end and speaks of events in relation to that time that is coming.  Daniel 8:19, 11:27 and 11:35 tell us this and Daniel 12:1 tells us “at that time” the time of trouble will begin- signifying that at a time of God’s choosing, and when Michael (Christ) stands up the time of trouble will begin.  In saying “no man knows the day or the hour,” Jesus let us know that God does not reveal to us the time of His second coming, but that God Himself knows and will act according to His plan. 

 

The ISIS caliphate was declared on the morning of June 29, 2014 (they chose the first of Ramadan).  What significance this particular time has on God’s appointed timeline for the end is not clear, but it’s clear in other ways that the event mirrored the historical fulfillment of the 6th trumpet, and that it marked the rise of a violent element bent on acts of terrorism and atrocities against humanity which could be fittingly be described as a releasing of angels of destruction.

 

Another thing of significance in regard to the date/time, though, is the principle we have discussed in previous trumpets which is that the trumpets seem to highlight one specific smaller event which is to serve as a warning for something far worse that will come if the warning is not heeded.  Two examples of this are 1) how the 2nd trumpet visual representation of the sinking of a ship seems to symbolize the ultimate fall of Babylon, and how the poem describing the 4th trumpet darkness/mount St. Helens seems to also describe a super-volcano event.  

 

In the case of the verse describing a certain important “hour, day, month and year,” that is preceded by “a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God” from the temple in Heaven, this is perhaps most strongly emphasized time description ever recorded in the Bible.  It has to be about something that will be of extreme significance to all humanity.  And, when in combination with the description of events starting with the release of angels bent on destroying 1/3 of humanity, it seems that this very likely points forward to the actual “appointed time” for the time of trouble to begin. 

 

The moment ISIS declared the caliphate was a smaller representation to serve as a warning for the final close of probation when Michael (Christ) finishes his intercessory work in the heavenly sanctuary and stands up at the beginning of the time of trouble.  Within the time since ISIS declared the caliphate our world is increasingly in chaos and less and less at peace - with terror in so many places that almost no place feels safe any more; with racial tensions and hatred between all different groups of people climaxing everywhere; with world powers continually on the verge of war, and increasing natural disasters every day.

 

But things are just warming up, we haven’t seen anything yet.  Something is about to break loose – and it will be huge, like the releasing of demons bent on destroying our world. Though in neither the historical (Ottoman Caliphate) nor modern fulfillment (ISIS Caliphate) of the 6th trumpet prophecy a literal 1/3 of all mankind was killed, (though both represented massive loss of life and the type of destructive spirit and power which would attempt to kill that many if given the chance), but when Satan, the very death angel himself who is the mastermind and inspiration of all hatred and murder, is ultimately released from the restraints that have prevent him from inflicting devastation all over planet earth – it will not be a symbolic 1/3, it will be a literal 1/3 of ALL mankind that will be destroyed.  The 6th trumpet prophecy serves as a warning that this day is coming.

 

Ellen White, who was given prophetic insight about these events coming in the end times, describes what she saw in vision about the sealing described in Revelation 7 which precedes the releasing of the winds of strife; “I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven. An angel with a writer’s inkhorn by his side returned from the earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and the saints were numbered and sealed. Then I saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the Ten Commandments, throw down the censer. He raised His hands, and with a loud voice said, ‘It is done.’ And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as Jesus made the solemn declaration, ‘He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.’” {Early Writings 279.2}

 

“Every case had been decided for life or death... As Jesus moved out of the most holy place, I heard the tinkling of the bells upon His garment; and as He left, a cloud of darkness covered the inhabitants of the earth... While Jesus had been standing between God and guilty man, a restraint was upon the people; but when He stepped out from between man and the Father, the restraint was removed and Satan had entire control of the finally impenitent. It was impossible for the plagues to be poured out while Jesus officiated in the sanctuary; but as His work there is finished, and His intercession closes, there is nothing to stay the wrath of God, and it breaks with fury upon the shelterless head of the guilty sinner, who has slighted salvation and hated reproof... {EW 280.2}

 

It is very sad that sin must be punished, but justice demands that the natural consequences of sin must be seen and understood.  And this very passage highlights how it will happen - that when the restraint which was placed on Satan during the ministry of Christ in the Heavenly sanctuary is released, destruction will follow as the natural result for those who have refused to take refuge in the protecting love and salvation of Christ.  Those who have chosen Satan as their leader will be faced with the reality of what a cruel monster he really is, and discover too late that the prosperity and benefits he offered in exchange for moral compromise were merely deception and lies.  And then “there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time,” Daniel 12:1.

 

In the book, “The Great Controversy,” which chronicles events of the conflict between Christ and Satan from soon after Christ’s resurrection until the close of time, Ellen White describes further the destructive power of Satan that will be exercised in the end of time when he appears as the antichrist attempting to fool everyone into thinking he is Jesus who has come to save them; “While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation.”  She goes on to describe how he is already working this destruction frequently, though on a smaller scale; “Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. ‘The earth mourneth and fadeth away,’ ‘the haughty people ... do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.’” Isaiah 24:4, 5. {The Great Controversy pg. 589.3}

 

It would be a merciful God who would not allow Satan to be released to do his work of massive destruction until after the close of probation- after the time when all people had made their decision for life or for death.  It’s true that life is dangerous, and there is never a guarantee that we have another day, but it shows a merciful God who would restrain Satan from killing millions more who had not had a chance until their decision has been made.

 

God knows exact times, and knows when the cup of iniquity on earth will be full.  Only then will these events take place, as marked by that final “hour, day, month and year.” Ellen White shares; “God keeps a reckoning with the nations.... When the time fully comes that iniquity shall have reached the stated boundary of God’s mercy, His forbearance will cease. When the accumulated figures in heaven’s record books shall mark the sum of transgression complete, wrath will come.”—Testimonies for the Church 5:524 (1889).{Last Day Events pg. 40.2} Who was Ellen White? ; Ellen White named by Smithsonian among the 100 most significant Americans of all time , EGW Link 2

Part of the record which God is keeping a reckoning with is the history of the great United States - America the beautiful, which is our home.  As I write these things, I speak as one who loves America - I was born and raised in this great land.  God has truly blessed this nation above all nations in the earth.  But with great privileges comes great responsibility, and without question I can say with great sadness that we see how our land has come more and more to represent the principles of Satan's kingdom with all of the pleasure-seeking, evils introduced by Hollywood, crime, strife, racial tension and hatred.  Greed and corruption have weakened our economy to the point where it is like a house of cards just waiting to collapse.  And all of these things are surely working toward the complete downfall of this nation, as foretold in the 7 trumpets prophecy, which will take place sometime just before Jesus comes to take His faithful children home to heaven.

The prophecy continues that “the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. 21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.” Rev 9:20, 21.  This is talking about a time of unprecedented apostasy and evil, “as in the days of Noah,” as Jesus said it would be before His second coming.  We can see that the time we are living in since the time the ISIS caliphate was declared certainly fits that description to a great degree, but it will only get worse as we enter the final time of trouble.

 

As mentioned in the previous 7 trumpets blogs, the east and west pattern of attacks or destruction on ancient Rome and the modern United States has also been followed throughout, with the first 4 being against western Rome historically or Western US modernly, and the 5th and 6th effecting the east. However, since the rise of the ISIS caliphate we have not seen any attack or destructive effect on the eastern United States yet.  But a somewhat ominous factor to consider regarding the potential damage ISIS could do, especially if history continues to repeat, is that sometime after the Ottoman Caliphate came into power it actually put an end the political Roman Empire by attacking and taking over it's capital of Constantinople.

 

Whether something like that would happen literally by ISIS or just symbolically through the bringing in of a similar Satanic order of autocratic rule is yet to be seen.  But it is clear that it is Satan’s studied goal to take over the entire world with the kind of extremist principles demonstrated by ISIS. Satan hates the individual freedom to worship God which the US constitution was set up to protect, and it is his purpose to ultimately subvert those principles of freedom and justice which God’s hand directed would be included in the government of the United States.

 

It is of note that after the fall of the political Roman Empire historically the continuation of the papal power which was originally established by it seemed to represent a continuation of the religious power of the Roman Empire.  This factor may also be repeated, as Revelation 13 predicts that the United States (the beast from the earth) will be instrumental in helping to establish the papacy (the beast from the sea) as the major one world leader in the end and causing all the earth to worship it- just as ancient Rome gave power to the papacy. 

 

Historically the papacy exercised violent authoritative rule, crusades as well as the torture and killing of Christians which was not at all unlike what ISIS is doing currently.  In fact, some people have shown that there are solid reasons to believe that Islam may have actually been a brain child of the Vatican for the purpose of expanding this type of violent authoritative rule on earth and continuing to persecution of protestant Christianity in lands.  That may sound so sinister that it’s hard to believe, but when you see the multiple occult symbolisms used all throughout the papacy it means that the organization is actually in secret cooperation with Satan/Lucifer to help him accomplish his ultimate goals for world dominance by whatever means possible.  

 

Since both liberal and conservative extremes are by Satan’s inspiration (the Bible warns us not to go to the right or the left) he works to accomplish his ultimate purposes by inspiring the two extremes and then getting them to war against each other.  In this way he breaks down the peace and stability of society and he wins overall, no matter which side comes into power.  In the case of Catholicism versus Islam, Catholicism represents the extreme liberal religious option – in which every pagan god and idol is openly welcomed into the church and embraced (they just changed the name plates on idol statues from the names of pagan gods to things like “Jesus,” “Mary,” “Joseph,” etc. but the people originally knew it was the same statue).  Islam represents conservative extremist religion – where instead of embracing the idolatry and paganism they come into villages hacking down idol statues and making

 

But since both extremes are the brain children of Satan for the purpose of accomplishing his ultimate purpose, we see that they actually bear close similarity to one another as demonstrated by how both the Vatican/papacy and radical Islam have manifested the exact same torturing, persecuting, authoritative violent rule.  The papacy called it the “crusades” while radical Islam calls it “jihad,” but it’s the same thing and it is Satan’s work.  The greatest undeniable evidence that this is true is the fact that both through the catholic crusades and through Islamic jihadism true Christians have been martyred and persecuted by the thousands.

 

Here is an excellent video by professor Walter Veith which explains the Islam-Vatican connection;

 

 

You can see how Satan is trying to work to get society to ultimately accept Vatican rule by how Pope Francis courts the favor of both liberals and conservatives.  He appeals to protestants who are forming unions with him faster than at any time in history, but he also makes statements in support of extreme liberal views and socialism which liberal candidates such as Bernie Sanders condone and support.  When he comes to the US he is treated like a rock star by masses of people and by the government as well.  But no one should be fooled by the Vatican wolf in sheeps clothing- the papacy does not change and is the same organization that would restrict freedom of conscience if given a chance to rule again that it did during the dark ages.  The Bible reveals that the papacy is in league with Satan and thus will be ultimately accomplish his purposes.

 

It is not a joke that Satan/Lucifer has been trying throughout the ages to take over the entire world.  As the great mastermind of evil that is exactly what he has been carefully laying plans to do.  And part of how he has planned to do this is by collaborating with the leaders of this world through promising them earthly success and riches if they will agree to work for his purposes.  It is not far fetched at all to say that many (yes, perhaps all) of the current world leaders are doing exactly that, and you see the evidence for that in the occult symbolism that is rampant all throughout the kingdoms of earth, in occult symbolism in government, business and entertainment.  

 

Though it may be true that some small businesses could chose their symbols without intentionally making any association or connection with the occult, but when huge businesses all over the world repeatedly demonstrate sun symbols which represent sun worship (Lucifer worship – as Lucifer means light and he takes the sun to represent himself), and the same symbols are found all throughout government, Hollywood and the Vatican, there is no way possible that such a thing could be mere coincidence.  On the contrary – it is evidence right before our eyes that what the Bible teaches about Satan’s plans for this world and his system of Babylon are indeed true. 

The Illuminati and Free Masonry are secret societies which are occult and at their highest levels they are in direct communication with Satan/Lucifer.  Their symbols and messages all throughout government and society show us that men on earth are working to promote Satan’s goals for world dominance and the formation of a one world government which will attempt to crush and persecute true Christianity just as the catholic cruisaides and Islamic jihadism have.  The Bible tells in places such as Revelation chapter 13 us that Satan’s goals to take over the world this way will culminate during apocalyptic times just before the return of Christ. Revelation 18 teaches us some of the details of what’s going on in the end of time with the various organizations that constitute Satan’s Babylonian kingdom (see also The Great Controversy, chapter entitled “the final warning”), saying that the kingdoms of this world (“all nations”) have “fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” (evil birds representing demons, occultism here).  Continuing, “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

 

Psalms chapter 2 also points forward to the time of when the kings of the earth are secretly conspiring to form the one world government predicted by the Bible when it says;

 

1 “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,

3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.”

4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision.

5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure...”

 

In verse two, some versions say the kings of the earth... conspire together.

 

For more about this subject, see also my other blog entitled “UN, NWO: Lucifer is Coming Out of the Closet

 

Revelation 12 teaches the history of Satan as the foe of humanity – how he got to planet earth and the prediction that he will successfully deceive the whole world;

 

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

The secrets of occultism demonstrated through Illuminati symbolism throughout our society and government are evidence that Satan is already well established in his plans to deceive the whole world.  And world events, such as the rise of the ISIS caliphate, demonstrate that Satan is working like a master chess player to get all of his pieces in place to take over the entire world.

 

If you don’t think that could be true, consider this; the name ISIS also represents the Egyptian god was the mother of another god “Horus.”  Horus was represented by the all-seeing eye which has now become the luciferian Illuminati symbol for the New World Order.  You can see it right on the back of the US $1 bill- the all-seeing eye which is on top of the unfinished tower of Babel, with the words “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” meaning “New Order of the Ages” or “New World Order.”

 

So, keeping in mind that Isis was the mother of Horus – it tells us that the illuminati plan may be somehow to use the organization of the ISIS Caliphate to usher in (give birth to) the New World Order/ luciferian one world government.

 

All of these things points to our final hope of glory - that Jesus will come to deliver His waiting children from the desolated Earth to take us home to Heaven with Him “that where I am ye may be also,” as He said.  If we make Christ our refuge, all the sadness and pain of this lifetime will serve only to make us appreciate the wonders and beauty of Heaven all that much more!

 

We have the promised assurance;

 

“And at that time your people shall be delivered,
Every one who is found written in the book.
And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth

shall awake, some to everlasting life,
Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.”

Daniel 12:1-3
