    wise word:Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    I wonder why eschatologists and theologians in the united states like avoiding this topic?How can they allocate iraq to mystery babylon?just few preachers like jack van impe says the truth.There is a difference between the geographic babylon and the mystery babylon located in rev 17 and revelation 18,please to avoid serious resentments i plead with readers to read these passages and see which city it refers to.Even Rick Joiner the author of the final quest and the call of the morning starministeries stated on trinity broadcasting network that he had a dream where in a cabin he was shown parts of America and fire was coming out from different cabins he couldnt consume it,a voice said to him take your wife out you have no time.He added this"my dreams have been coming to pass" and he got that a year ago.He also prophesyed that osama bin laden will not be caught.
    reference in bible to mystery babylon burnt with fire

    Rev 18:17  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
    Rev 18:18  And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!


    proof(statue of liberty=revelation 17:4)why are people so blind?
    john 9:39 ...And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
    ..she said to herself i am a queen i need no help....

    revelation 17:4  The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and covered with gold ornaments, precious stones, and pearls. In her hand she held a gold cup full of obscene and filthy things, the result of her immorality.

    what city rules over the king of the earth?what city goes about to fight wars and liberate and makes the final say in making  global strategic decisions?what city usually determine the economy of other nations as we know china will take over in six years to come according cnn news live two days ago.
    revelation 17:18

    ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
    And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
    And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!



    what to do?
    some of you will have to PLAN live some parts of America like dallas texas california and few other places including new york,some places like baltimore, philadelphia will be safe.I am very serious because destruction is coming soon time is running out and i didnt give the most accurate tribulation timeline ON MY HUB WHICH HAS BEEN REMOVED by the moderator DUE to its classified nature the basic beginning strarts this year but cant state the exact time because it is classified wouldnt want people to predict rapture because i now have understanding of 98% of the books of prophecies including my book daniel.Precious saints in all theses dont trust in chariots or horses and you will ask where cometh my help,for it comes from the lord.In daniel it says and many with understanding shall instruct many.Whoso readeth let him understand.
    wise word:Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.



    Economic collapse:who is the most indebted city?you know the answer revelation 18:16-17  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,..

      Lord Daniel. Think about it. This is crazy. Would we invest all that time and effort  (and a small fortune. Demons don't come cheap) to put those chips in everyone's heads in order to ruin the dollar if we were simply going to burn the country down?  Of course not.

I think 2 or 3 is considered.One shall rise above the other,and one against the other until the victor is the Babylon.This represent the events and occurrences of the 4th of the 7Seals.

    Rev.17:3 is the same description as the red dragon described in Rev. 12:3 who is identified as Satan or the devil.
       The only difrence is that the dragon (Rev 12)has only seven crowns.
       In Rev. 13:2  the Devil gives his power and his seat to this other beast
       This other beast (C 13) has commonly been understood to be a False religion who persicutes and kills all that does not worship this religion.

      The woman as described here in chapter 17 is said to be the "CITY" where the false religion resides.


       How many cities in America was built upon a religion which persicutes the rightious Saints?
        New York City does have the United Nations; but It does not persicute the rightious Saints.
      So  NO! I don't think that Mystery Babylon is located in America.
       And this city will be settled upon seven hills or mountains (Depending upon interpretation)


       
        Just saying what my bible is saying.

        Actually, the way it reads it's obvious the horse is a horse, of course. Of course. It's name was Mr. Ed. But Wilbur never rode him and, well, before the prophesy could be fulfilled the show got canceled. End times averted decades ago. At least, unless they do a remake. Keep an eye on ABC.

        Let's take a reality pill here:
        I work in IT. Government IT systems never work properly. Requirements aren't properly defined, they hire expensive consultants and fritter away the budget, and what you get is a half baked system that is clunky and is a pain in the arse to the user. Governments are hopeless at implementing even small IT systems. They end up with hundreds of stove piped systems all doing similar things, none of which can talk to each other or be integrated. So a worldwide RFID system? Don't make me laugh.
        World government. Impossible in the 21st century. America is no longer the great superpower, it is in decline. There is no military or economic superpower in existence capable of taking over the whole world. The Eurpoean Union experiment is falling badly because a mix of weak and strong economies just cannot operate under a single unified currency. The Euro is in big trouble with failing economies of Portugal, Ireland, and Greece needing billions in bail-out money from the EU, whilst Germany is booming. Germany needs interest rates to be raised, but the failing economies can't afford it. Now imagine a unified government across the world, trying to tie together the economies of America, China, Japan, Germany and the UK, with Somalia, Yemen, Bangladesh, Bolivia and North Korea.
        A world government ruled by Satan. Mmm that contradicts the vision in Daniel of the rock cut from the mountain of God, that grows CONTINUALLY until the Kingdom of God covers the whole World and the World is full of the knowledge of God.
        The term anti-Christ does not appear in Revelation at all and according to the Epistles of John it is a generic term for anyone who denies God has come in the flesh. There is NO WORLD ANTI-CHRIST ruler.
        Whore of Babylon?? The description perfectly suits the Church, especially all the false prophets of Trinity Broadcasting that vomit into your living room.
        Might I suggest Lord Daniel that you drop the unbiblical 'Left Behind Series' fantasies, drop the dispensationalist nonsense that was only invented in the 19th century, and study the Word of God for yourself.

            The lower legs and feet of the statue represent the Roamn Empire of 2000years ago. The picture of iron and clay demonstrate a key difference in the Roman method of government compared to the former Empires. Those others would force migrate conquered peoples to get them to intermarry, resulting in a unified blended people. The Romans instead ruled by placing govenors to rule individual conquered peoples. They didn't mix them, hence part of their kingdom was strong, part was weak, and it wasn't mixed.

            Significantly, Jesus is that rock, that came to smash the Roman empire by establishing God's Kingdom on Earth. It has been growing for the last 2000years.

            Your ideas of secret rapture and tribulation were not invented until the 19th century. The tribulation happened between AD70 when Rome destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem and AD135 when Hadrian destroyed the state of Israel.

              I have to tell you. I've always been fascinated with Jerami's posts about everything having already happened. Your post pulled it all together with Daniel. Great post. One of the problems I've always had with the church was the crazy, crazy prophecies of the end. If they could accept that sensible take on it and no great cataclysm is impending I can't imagine what a wonderful effect it might have.

                  Exactly.
                  The collective churches do not want the truth to come out about what humans really are!!! Which completely negates "The God Named Iesous" and reveals "The Collective Children of Creator".

                  What is being taught is some kind of surface icing truth, backed by the classic Greco-Roman pagan worship syndrome (less the slaughtering of bulls/goats, but certainly a lot of slaughtering of sheep --mentally, spiritually and at one time physicallly).

                  What still puzzles me is how they managed to unite Daniel's scripts with John's Letter of Revealing to form the Aleph-Tov "End Time" String Theory.

                  James.

                    The collective churches all came out from the teachings of Paul, backed by Peter...read the gospels! Peter was clueless, and Paul murdered christians. Paul was directly responsible for  usurping the church, and Peter was party to it, but, that is exactly what was supposed to happen. The conventional christians have been led down a side path. Separation, division. Jesus said "I come not to bring peace, but division and a sword!"

                If the 70 weeks of Daniel's prophecy began when the word went to rebuild the temple, and came to an end with the fulfillment of Jesus' ministry, how can you logically separate the 69th and 70th weeks by 2000 years?

                1. Jerami profile image76
                  Jeramiposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                  The 62 weeks were fulfilled in 26, 30, or 33 AD.
                  The actual time of the crucifixion has been covered up over the past 2000 years. So we don't know which of these three are true.

                     The 69 weeks would mathmatically have been accomplished around 96 AD which coincides with Jesus giving John the Revelation.

                    The 70 weeks would have been accomplished around 104 AD.

                     Just because God said  I am giving you 70 weeks to quit doing these things doesn't mean that he acts immediately upon the 70 weeks being accomplished.  He waited until other time lines also are fulfilled. 
                     Such as the "Little season" that the saints under the altr were told to wait.(Rev. 6:11)

                     A season is 13 weeks.  A little season would be an amount of tims slightly less that 13 weeks.
                    A season would be approx 119 years.

                    119 years after 30 AD would bring us to approx 149 AD.

                    But it is writtn that this time period would be cut short. 

                   
                     Ok ...  I'm done for a "Short Time"

                lord daniel WROTE ...understand the 70th week of daniel also read rev17:10-18 u will understand that 5kings have fallen including rome

                = = =

                   Time frames of prophesy are most important ... without a definate timeline that the prophesy is to ocure within. the prophesy itself is meaningless.  Ssooo  why would God have a prophesy delivered IF no one can understand when they are to ocure?
                   This Chapter of the seventy weeks has all the answers contained within the message ...  BUT ...  the church never teaches it without misinterpreting it.
                   
                  First verse ...  in the first year of Darius  (538 BC)
                  V23  ...   At the beginning of thy supplication "THE COMMANDMENT CAME FORTH"
                  V25 Know thereore and understand, from the going forth of the commandment   (to restore and to build Jerusamen) until Messiah the Prince shall be 69 weeks.
                 
                    Babylon had destroyed the city and temple in 586BC. 
                In 538 BC; Cyrus says that the Lord has CHARGED him to build him an house in Jerusalem.  Cyrus passes along this commandment to the Babylonians to free all the Hebrews that wanted to, to return to Jerusalen to rebuild it and the temple.

                   I don't how much clearier that it can be?

                   V26  basicaly says  And 62 weeks shall pass before they kill the Messiah.
                   If Jesus is the Messiah, approx 568 of our years pass beore this prophesy is fulfilled.

                  Ssooo   62 weeks in prophesy has to be equal to approx 568 years!  A week would be = to approx 9.13 of our years.
                   
                  There are phrases such as a Time, Times and half a Time.
                  We loose the whole message when "Reader Friendly" versions of the bible change words such as " a short time" to read  "for a little while"  or any other such nonsence.
                   A "time" calculates as approx 480 years. A short time would be a little less than 480 years.

                  IF we read the prophesy with this concept in mind ....
                We will come to a different place in our understanding of all of scripture than that which the church has brought us.

                   And that is a FACT!   Whether it be true or false is up to the individual to decide.  But this concept will definately bring us to a different place.

                    Is it worth your time to investigate? 
                    What IF  Gabriel delivered Gods Message exactly as intended?
                    What if Prophesy is not a mystery?  Until we start Interpreting it to mean something else other than what is clearly written?
                    Is it worth investigating before we dismiss IT ?

    = - = - = -

      Exactly ...   But  I will add this ...

    The four horsemen were sent down to the earth immediately after the crucifixion and has been rideing the earth ever sense.  There is nothing in scripture that says they were called back, or that these things were going to happen for any specific period of time. They have been ongoing.

      When the Angel proclamed "Who Is worthy..."  AND  ...


    No one "ON" earth or "IN" heaven was worthy.  Ask yourself; where was the Lamb of God? 

       He was in route from earth to Heaven.  And as soon as He arived in heaven he immediately took the book and began opening the seals.   This establishes a timeline for this series of prophesy to have begun.
       From the time of the crucifixion the conditions continued to worsen until there was a great earthquake in divers places. In 62 AD a great earthquake erupted in the Meditarrian sea that destroyed Pompaii.
       Smaller earthquakes became commonplace for the next 17 years. Pompaii was still under reconstruction when Mt. Vesuvius erupted.
       This first earthquake in 62 AD signals the beginning of "Great tribulation".

              What Jerami and others are saying is that the return of Jesus and all those so called end time prophesies that Lord Daniel and most of Christendom talk about these days, already happened nearly 2000 years ago. I have to say that I am increasingly sympathetic to this idea as I put aside all the stuff I was taught in church.

                Thank you for clariying.

                   I believe that 99% of prophesy contained within the Old Testament was given to THAT Hebrew Nation that ceased to exist in 135-138 AD.
                   The book o Revelation is another matter.
                   The first seven seal judgments were fulfilled between the time of the crucifixion and the end of days for THAT Hebrew Nation that was scattered through out the Roman Empire.

                   The Trumpet and Vial judgments have been systomatically been coming into fulfillment ever sinse.

                   There are only two of them left to be fulfilled.
                  Seventh trumpet   and
                  Seventh Vial     

                   Just My  opinion.

      No matter how hard we try to FIX false doctrine it remains tainted to some degree. 
      No one knows which part is tainted the worse until we clense our minds of all preconceived ideas as to what is written and begin all over again in our understanding.

      I don't know if anyone, including my self, can compltely acheive this goal?  But we should ALL try.

    I have read the opening post many times trying to understand it.

    I have surmised that the discussion on this thread pertains to this year's NHL playoffs, and the question is if any of the remaining teams are as good as the Toronto Maple Leafs (who did not qualify for post season play due to a unfortunate poor start to the season)

    The only rational response is no... no they are not as good.

      Yes, they are a better team for the sixth straight season in a row. smile

      This season’s disappointing climax, falling short of the playoffs and ending up in the 10th  spot in the East, was enough to crush the hopes of Leafs’ fans throughout Toronto. Meanwhile the team was optimistic and saw the light at the end of the tunnel for next season.

      Toronto’s inability to reach the playoffs marks the franchise-record sixth straight season without making the trip to post-season.

       People (Atheists) often raise he question as to the validity of the proofs of the existence of Jesus.

       A similar question came to my mind. 

       Outside of the bible ...  Is there any documentation talking about any of the disciples,  Establishing their validity.  especialy or Paul !

       I'm too lazy to do all of that research. 
    And am honestly and open mindedly curious.

       Is there any historical evidence of the existence of any of the disciples other than their own writtings. 

       How many disciples mentioned other disciples? Did any of the disciples mention Paul.

       

       I simply do not recall.

    Mystery Babylon is a city which sits where Satans seat has always been.   At least that is what I understand scripture to be saying.
       The beast as described in rev. 13 is a false religion, Satan gave it his seat of power then the beast builds a city there.
       
        I a day in prophesy is as a Year then this beast was given power to blaspheme for 1200 years.

       If 62 weeks is 568 years then 42 months is the same as approx 1650 years.   

      Either way 42 months is a really, really, really long time.

       Or is a day just a day?  And 42 months is just 42 months?
       We can't have it both ways,

       We need to make up our mind on this issue!

        I just think that "IF" anyone is to believe or attempt to believe that the prophesy of scripture has any truth what so ever;   We  SHOULD begin our understanding at the earliest possible place in scripture worthy of establishing a foundation.

           Yes there is prophesy that goes back into Genesis.

           But in order to make any sense of prophesy at all there has to be some kind of reference to a time that these prophesy is said to be fulfilled.  Without some kind of reference to when these things are to be fulfilled, there is no purpose for them AT ALL.

           I believe that Daniel chapter 9 gives us that information.

           Verse one identifies the year that Gabriel gives this information to Daniel.  The first year of Darius was 538 BC.  Daniel then begins praying and making supplications.

          When Gabriel is first seen coming near to Daniel, Gabriel proclaims, "I have come to give you skill and understanding".

          "At the beginning of thy supplications, THE COMMANDMENT   CAME  FORTH"

          From the going forth of the (THAT)  commandment  …  unto Messiah the Prince  shall be 69 weeks"
          After 62 weeks they will kill the Messiah.            Approx 568 years later they did!

          I’m sorry folks    I think that this message is too important  for anyone to MIS interpret ; as if to change the entire message to mean something else other than thaw which is clearly written. 

           This is the first and only time that a timeline comparison is given between prophetic timelines and actual length of our time that prophesy is said to reach its fulfillment.
        When we apply this equation to all of prophesy where a time frame is given before an event is to take place, all of the misinterpretations come crumbling down.

          Why not at least try it?
          You will find that there is no mystery;    …  the jig saw puzzle comes together quite nicely.

           And makes a clear picture.

    Here's a good place to start learning about the reinvention of Revelation.  John Darby got the fever going in the 19th century, and we carry it on today.
    Revelation is simply classic apocalyptic Hebrew literature, written to bring comfort to the suffering believers living under Roman persecution.
    The End Is Near has been screamed for millenia.
    Scream on.

      I'm really tired of the screaming. You'd think someone within the church might have put two and two together by now, but I guess it makes money; or, at the least, keeps the pews in the churches half full.

      "The End" has been misinterpreted  for  millenia.


        I am not disputing the truth or untruth of prophesy

         All that I am saying is that what is  actually written in scripture concerning prophesy is not what the churches has been teaching ever since today’s church was reinvented in 326 AD.

        After so many centuries of these misinterpretations being imbedded into our brains, it is almost impossible to see past them and read what is actually written.
         Our subconscious minds “Thinks it” already know what we are about to read before we even open the book.

    Many people are reading the book of Daniel and applying these prophesy to the modern world. It doesn't apply to the modern world.
      These beasts described in Daniel are identified by the messenger. And three of them were identified by name; Babylon, Persia and Greece. The reason the Roman Empire wasn't also named is because at that time,  Rome was little more than a small speck on the map. A tiny city that hardly anyone even knew existed.

      All of the prophesy written in the book of Daniel are said to come to pass during the time of these four kingdoms that are to be given dominion over THAT Hebrew Nation that according to these prophesy will come to its END of Days.
     
      "The Little Horn" is said to be a king belonging to the fourth kingdom. This king replaces three kings after the first ten. That would be the 14th king of the fourth kingdom.

      The Roman Empire was that fourth kingdom. Hadrian was the 14th Emperor.  Hadrian evacuated the entire Hebrew population, scattering the Hebrew Nation through out the rest of the Roman Empire.  That Hebrew Nation came to their end of days exactly as these prophesy said that it would.

      These prophesy WAS fulfilled 1873 years ago.
    The Little Horn (Hadrian) came to his end (1873 years ago) and none shall help him (Daniel 11:45)  And At That time, shall Michael stand up, the great Prince which standeth or the children of thy people ..." (Daniel 12:1)

      The great tribulation Jesus was describing began soon after his crucifixion.
      The end of days as Jesus was describing in Matthew 24 was just over 100 years into the future when he described them.

      To see this any other way is like saying WWI and WWII hasn't happened yet cause Nostradamus said these wars were future events and I believe him.  The future hasn't happened yet ...Sooo  these wars haven't happened yet. 

      Do you see the irony?
