Manifesto Wrap by Merwin
If you are not a believer in God, especially in the form of His only begotten Son Jesus. Or if you happen to be a Preterist (one who believes that the second coming of Jesus, has come and gone), then you will probably not agree with most of the content of this posting.
If... on the other hand you happen to be a believer and are awaiting the return of Jesus at some point in the future of mankind, then you may find some value in what is written here.
If you are convinced that what was written by the Apostle John in Revelation is yet to occur, but you don't know what to make of all the conspiracy theories, then you are most likely one of the people I am writing this for.
So... IF, the return of Jesus is at the door, and if, this is the generation that sees his return and those events that lead to it, then we may expect to be able to see some evidence that things are at least leaning in that direction.
For the sake of being brief I will not write out the scriptures in full, but I will list the corresponding context of a set of scriptures, quote the exact scripture that showcases my point and move on to the next point. This will allow the brevity, while giving the reader the ability to verify the full context.
Example... at some point in this posting (like now) I will give reference to... God said of the Jews "you are like the figs" and I will refer to all the verses in the context, Jer 24:1-10 but I will quote emboldened the passage in mind like this, Jeremiah 24:1 - 10 V. 5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. V.6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them and not pluck them up. And then hopefully, I will finish my point either in the same paragraph (like now) or I will carry on to the next paragraph.
As in the example given in the preceding paragraph, it is prophesied by the Lord through Jeremiah's account that there will come a time when God would put Israel (Judah, the Jews) back in the land (the land of Israel) to never again remove them. V.6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them and not pluck them up. From the time of their removal to the land of the Chaldeans until May 14, 1948... this prophesy has not been fulfilled.
And more to the point, if they were removed from there this time the prophesy could not be accomplished this go around either.
What then... Merwin, makes you think this is the time it will be fulfilled?
Excellent question... thank you Merwin, I refer to Matthew 24:4 - 38.
Matthew 24:8-13 (Amplified Version)
All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].
Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.
And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him who they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred.
And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.
And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity.
But he who endures to the end will be saved.
Matthew 24:15-16 (Amplified Version)
So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], standing in the Holy place – let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this] Then let those in Judea flee to the mountains;
Jesus goes on to report of the terrible future events. He then renders an important disclosure culminating with verses 32 thru 38.
Matthew 24:32-38 (Amplified Version)
From the fig tree learn this lesson: as soon as its young shoots become soft and tender and it puts out its leaves, you know of a surety that summer is near.
So also when you see these signs, all taken together, coming to pass, you may know of a surety that he is near, at the very doors.
Truly I tell you, this generation (the whole multitude of people living at the same time, in a definite given period) will not pass away till all these things taken together take place.
Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
But of that [exact] day and hour no one know, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
For just as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, [men] marrying and [women] being given in marriage, until the [very] day when Noah went into the ark.
And they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away – so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
I underline the reference to the fig tree, to emphasize it as an obviously significant symbol. Israel became its own internationally recognized sovereign nation, May 14, 1948, and once again gained as its "spiritual" capital, Jerusalem in 1967.
Okay, so IF... we are that generation to see his return. If we are to assess properly what must be foundational to the proper atmosphere for the Beast, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet to occupy... taking over those reigns so to speak, what must this scenario look like?
666 The number of a man.
There are many who have speculated and commented that the number six (which is the number of a man) repeated three times suggests it is a man stating that he, and therefore all men are their own god and that they make their own destiny apart from any other "God" consideration.
This would seem to be a very reasonable speculation in my mind especially when viewed in the light of the Humanist Manifestos I & II, and this is reinforced by the powerful names listed as signatures at the end of each, and in regard to all the measures (affirmations) that have already been accomplished since they were affirmed.
Now... regarding all the conspiracy theories that are floating around, I really don't care what they are called. They can be referred to as The Club of Rome, One World Centralized Banking, The Rothechilds (sp?), The Illuminati, on and on and on, it really doesn't matter what those networks (for they are many) would be called. They or something like them would have had to be in place, laying the foundations for the "right" setting for the Beast, the Antichrist... to inhabit, and for a very long time, for generations even.
Why? Why would it have to be for a long time?
Again IF, if you don't believe in God then all this doesn't matter, I don't know why you're still reading (kidding... I know why even if you don't).
It would have to be for a long time because this is the first time in human history that we have the capability to fulfill the descriptions of the last days... that all nations (all nations = all families) are able to be kept track of. The monitoring of every man, woman, and child on the planet can now be achieved. Israel becoming a nation once again as prophesied by Jesus.
The philosophies of those in power above Politicians, the Humanist Scientists, and the Uber-Rich is preemptively and lovingly acquainted with the Antichrist message that you are your own God. I say lovingly because they may not be aware of the holocaust that is planned, Germany certainly wasn't. The Bolshiviks were unaware of the future atrocities of Stalin.
Think about it realistically... the Humanists cannot "magically" bring about people willingly casting aside their love of God in the way they have come to know him.
Whether they be orthodox Jews, or Christians, or Muslims, or Buddhists or whatever, they will not peaceably "change" their views especially when the new perspective is imposed upon them. They never have, they never will, and the Principalities that pull the strings of the targets of all the conspiracy theories, are counting on this.
You see... ultimately there are too many people on the planet for these collective manipulators to be able to realize Utopia, for them to be able to create the perfect world, they have a measured number of what is manageable, around 500 million.
So warfare of any kind, carnage of any kind, pestilence of any kind, genocide of any kind, death... of any kind suits their desired end. After all no one lives forever and birth control / abortions are to slow or resisted.
And to tell the truth the Principalities and their immediate puppets are counting on the Bible and especially the book of Revelation being true... first the great catching away, then 5/6 of all mankind being destroyed hits their metrics pretty good.
They are convinced that they can win a war against God though, after all they spell god with a small "g".
