A Book that Tells the Future of the Nations in This Generation

A Book that Tells the Future of the Nations in This Generation

 

This article contains one chapter of a two-volume book, written in 1976. This book reveals the future, as prophesied by Yahweh, the only Being Who has proven He can foretell the future, thousands of years in advance.

 

The seven-year peace plan, confirmed with the late Yitzhak Rabin, Yasser Arafat and Bill Clinton in 1993, was written about in Volume 1 of this book in 1976, years before that peace plan came to pass.

 

Also revealed in these books is how and when the earth will be destroyed, and by whom; when that destruction is prophesied to start, who will be left alive, where they will be found and who will keep them alive. Also found in these books is why the earth will be destroyed.

 

Chapter Nine of Volume 1 is the only chapter inserted in this article, but you are encouraged to read the entire book. You can read this book online for free at yisraylsays.com.

 

You could also get this book in print at yahweh.com or call The House of Yahweh for ordering information. I prefer printed books because you can tag and mark them, and personalize them with your notes for use in teaching.

 

The Mark of the Beast is not a book of interpretations. The Holy Scriptures are used to reveal and interpret the Prophecies, and various biblical and secular references are used to back up those Prophecies.

 

We are now living in the generation of the nuclear bombs that can darken the sun and burn the earth in one hour. This generation started in 1934 with the increase in knowledge. The nuclear bombs also started in the year 1934. I did too! I was born in 1934.

 

I urge you to hurry. Read this chapter and the rest of the book as soon as possible. Your life depends on it.

 

The Mark of the Beast

Chapter Nine: Likeness of the Beast or Second Babylon!

 

Chapter 8 started the discourse about a city John the Revelator saw in a vision.

    John was shown a Prophecy for the Last Days. It is a Prophecy that will involve the whole world, but in this vision, John saw a certain city described as Mystery Babylon the Great.

Revelation 18:2, 4

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the Great is fallen (once), is fallen (the second time), and is become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

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.

 

John described this city as a harlot!

Revelation 17:1, 5, 18

1 And there came one of the seven malakim which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters;

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that Great City, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Revelation 18:10

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying Alas, Alas, that Great City Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come.     

 

Many students of Prophecy have confused the city John saw with the first, original Babylon. This original city of Babylon was captured by the Persians under Cyrus the Great in 539 B.C.E. Later, Alexander the Great planned to make the original city of Babylon the capitol of his Eastern Empire; but after his death, the original city Babylon gradually lost importance. This original city Babylon is not the city John saw.

    The New Funk and Wagnalls Encyclopedia, 1950, Volume 3, page 872, tells us:

 

Although the Persian kings made Babylon their residence, nothing was done for the restoration of the city. Alexander the Great, who, on his entrance in 331 B.C.E., had promised the inhabitants to rebuild the ruined temple, was unable to even clear away the rubbish, although he employed 10,000 workmen for two months. After his death in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, and the foundation of Seleucus Nicator, Babylon went rapidly into decay.

 

The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1910, Volume 3, page 6, says:

 

The foundation Seleucia in 312 B.C.E. diverted the population of Babylon to the new capitol of Babylonia and the ruins of the old city became a quarry for the builders of the new seat of government.

 

Literal Babylon was no longer a Great City when Revelation was written at the end of the first century C.E.

    The Prophet Daniyl prophesied the fall of the original city, Babylon:

Daniyl 1:1

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim King of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon unto Yerusalem, and besieged it.

Daniyl 5:17-31

17 Then Daniyl answered and said before the King, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the King, and make known to him the interpretation.

18 O thou King, the most High Yahweh gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom (Daniyl was speaking to Belshazzar), and majesty, and glory, and honour;

19 And for the majesty that He gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared  before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down.

20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him.

21 And he was driven from the sons of men: and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the Most High Yahweh ruled in the kingdom of men, and that He appointed over it whomsoever He will.

22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart,

23 Though thou knewest all this; But hast lifted up thyself against Yahweh of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy princes, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them, and thou hast praised the idols of silver and gold, of brass, iron, woods, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the Heavenly Father in Whose hand thy breath is, and Whose are all thy ways, hath thou not glorified.

24 Then was the part of the hand sent from Him; and this writing was written.

25 And this is the writing that was written, mene, mene, tekal, upharsin.

26 This is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; Yahweh hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. (Remember there are two Mene…Yahweh will do this the second time at the end of the age.)

27 Tekal; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

28 Peres; Thy kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniyl with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.

30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.

31 And Darius the Median took the Kingdom, being about three score and two years old.

 

Yahweh’s Prophecy given to Daniyl was fulfilled exactly as Yahweh said. Babylon was given to the Medes and Persians. Since this Babylon had already fallen and has never been rebuilt, it could not possibly be the same city John saw in his vision for these Last Days.

    Cities are often referred to in a spiritual sense, bearing similarities to the original. An example of this is:

Revelation 11:8

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the Great City which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Savior was sacrificed.

 

How do we identify what city John saw in his vision? As John saw the original Beast in Revelation 13:1-8, he saw also the likeness of the original beast rise up out of the earth. We have already proven this likeness to be the United States of America in Chapter 5.

       After John gives a full description of the first Babylon in Revelation 17:-6, he then gives a full description of the second Babylon in Revelation 18.  

   (To identify the Second Babylon, please follow the clues given by John in Revelation 18. John shows us a city like no other city on earth.)

    In Revelation 18:1, John says, “And after these things…” meaning, after he saw the first Babylon, he goes to the second Babylon.

    In Revelation 18:2 we see Babylon falls twice. As the first Babylon was led by Satan’s demons; so also, the Second Babylon is become the habitation of demon worship.

Revelation 18:2

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

 

The Greek word translated bird in the above verse, is from the Hebrew word, nacah meaning to expiate sin. Compare the Greek and Hebrew meanings:

 

Every unclean and hateful bird means to raise up sin, which is against the Laws of Yahweh. Compare this definition to:

Revelation 18:5

For her sins have reached into heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities!

 

All Nations Have Babylon’s Teachings

 

Revelation 18:3

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

 

The kings of the earth are practicing fornication (following after anything that is not of the Laws of Yahweh) in this city. The kings of the earth meet at the United Nations in Manhattan, New York, on land and in buildings donated by the powerful Rockefeller Foundation.

Revelation 18:9-11

9 And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying: Alas, Alas, that Great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no one buyeth their merchandise anymore.

 

By these verses we know the kings stand a long way off when the city is destroyed, showing they do not make this city their permanent dwelling place. They only meet there temporarily for trading purposes, neither are they in the city when it is destroyed by fire, an exact description of destruction by nuclear war.

Revelation 18:18-19

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this Great City!

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping and wailing, saying Alas, Alas, that Great City, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour she is made desolate.

 

The merchants of the earth have become rich through this merchandizing religion. Remember, each pagan-religious holiday of this Babylonian system carries with it the buying and selling of gifts, making the merchants who deal in this merchandise rich.

    Since World War I the businessmen of New York’s Wall Street have been the most powerful in all the world. Most of the major economic and financial decisions, affecting the United States and most of the allied world, have originated from some skyscraper at a boardroom meeting in Manhattan.

    The description of the very existence of this power eliminates any city of the communist world. Business and commerce are not permitted to thrive in collective communist societies.

 

The Great City That Became Three Parts!

 

The Great City New York is split into three major parts. Staten Island is one part. Manhattan Island and the Bronx compose the second part. Brooklyn and Queens comprise the third part.

    To better understand which Babylon is meant here, we have to see the further description John gives in Revelation 16. Here, John is speaking of the vials the malakim pour out on the earth in the Last Days (vials is translated bowls in later translations).

    John also shows two Babylons here. The first Babylon was located on the great River Euphrates, as The Basic Everyday Encyclopedia shows:

 

Euphrates River, c1700 mi. formed by union of W Euphrates and Murat Rs (which rise in Turkish Armenian highlands) near Kaban, E central Turkey, flows generally SW through Turkey (685 mi) within 95 mi of the Mediterranean, then S across the Syrian Desert, bisects Iraq, joins Tigris near Basra, the joint stream flowing to Persian Gulf. Not practically navigable, it is mainly used for irrigation if Syria and Iraq, although modern works do not compare with irrigation facilities of ancient times. Region of the lower course (Mesopotamia) was birth-place of great civilizations and has many ruins of Babylon, Sippar, Larsa, Ur, and Erech.

    Babylon, strategically located on the Euphrates, accessible both to the Mediterranean and Egypt and to the Black Sea. Though the term is sometimes applied to the civilizations, chiefly Sumerian, of the 2000’s BC, it generally refers to the Semetic penetration into Mesopotamia with a civilization founded by Sargon I, 2700’s BC, and reaching its height under Hammurabi, C2100 BC, who established Babylon as his capital. Hittite and nomadic Kassite attacks, 1700’s, caused a decline, reversed when Assyrian power triumphed. Except for periods of open insurrection, Babylon remained part of the Assyrian Empire 729-625. Under the Neo-Babylonian (Chaldean) empire, established by Nabo-polassar, 625, brought to its highest peak by his son, Nebuchadnezzar II, 605-362, Egypt was made a tributary, Babylon rebuilt magnificently, Jerusalem captured. Final decline began when the Persians under Cyrus the Great conquered B. 538 BC. B’s chief contributions include cuneiform writing: religious ideas, chiefly on the Creation and the Deluge, taken over from the Sumarians; the code of Hammurabi; monumental architecture and art.

 

Revelation 16:12-14, shows the sixth vial (bowl) is poured out on this great river, Euphrates, where the first Babylon was located. But Revelation 16:17-21 is the seventh vial and is to be poured out on the great city made of three major parts.

    By reading the King James Version of the Bible, the reader is misled into thinking the earthquake divided the great city into three parts, but this is not so.

    By reading Revelation 16-19 in its original we can see John was giving us a description of this great city, which had three major parts to its whole. A copy of the Greek Diaglott is displayed.

 

 

Notice the word divided is not in the original Greek.

    What John said was, “The great city of three parts and the cities of the nation fell, and the whole of Babylon (all the world) came in remembrance before Yahweh.”

    Revelation 16:20, says, “And every island fled away…” New York City is a multi-island city.

 

The reader must be aware not to confuse this three-part city with the city which is the seat of the beast (Revelation 17:9). The seat of the woman is built on seven hills (mountains). That city “reigneth over the kings of the earth.”

    This latter description fits none other than Rome, which sits on seven hills, as proven in Chapter 8.

    This city made of three parts, New York City, is the second Babylon. It is part of the last beast which came up out of the earth (Revelation 13:11) and has two horns—two religious powers, Catholic and Protestant. Again, the reader is advised to reread Chapter 4 for this proof.

    The Basic Everyday Encyclopedia gives information on New York City:

 

New York, city, SE NY on NY Bay at mouth of Hudson R. 365.4 sq mi including water area, 299 sq mi land area; pop 7,891,957. The largest city and financial and comm’l center of the US, NY is the focal point of a huge metropolitan area (1950 census, preliminary total 12,831,914) which includes parts of NJ, Westchester and Rockland counties. Long Island, from which thousands of commuters come daily. As a cultural and educational center with great art galleries, musical organizations, museums, universities, schools, places of entertainment, shops, hotels, parks, botanical gardens, libraries, characteristic nationality sections, NY is without parallel. It’s magnificently situated natural harbor, with 771 mi waterfront, is the greatest in the US, handling 40% (by value of the nation’s foreign commerce. It is the world center of finance and trade and its industry produces 10% (by value) of the nat’l output; mfg clothing (25% of US total) and fur goods (90%); ptg and publishing (focal point of most US publishers); varied food processing, metalworking, mfg drugs and chemicals, textiles, scientific equipment; auto assembling, ship bldg, repairing. Served by 12 RRs (4 into center of city), 4 airports, trucklines and interstate bus lines, the city’s internal transportation is handled by a vast (but inadequate) network of subways, surface cars, fleets of taxis, bridges and express highways; there are several vehicular and RR tunnels. There are 130 hospitals and large medical research centers. NY’s history dates from a Dutch settlement (earlier visited by Henry Hudson, 1609, possibly by Verrazano, 1524) when Peter Minuit of the Dutch West India Co purchased Manhattan from the Indians, reputedly for $24 worth of trinkets; called it New Amsterdam; British seized it in 1664, renamed it for the Duke of York. NY was US cap 1789-90, and Washington was inaugurated at Federal Hall, now a nat’l monument. Its growth was rapid after the Revolution. Its financial greatness dates from the establishment of a stock exchange  (1792) and Bank of NY (under Alexander Hamilton 1784). Completion of Erie Canal (1825), linking NY to Gr Lakes region, and bldg of RRs, stimulated growth further. By the mid 1800’s, great waves of European immigrants had congested the city and deplorable slums were established. Later, the scarcity of land and its cost, resulted in Manhattan’s…

 

 

THE STATE SEAL OF NEW YORK

 

The state seal, adopted in 1882, carries the state arms. In the center of the seal is a shield depicting a Hudson River scene, with sun, mountains, and two ships in sail. To the right of the shield stands Justice and to the left, Liberty. At Liberty’s foot is a royal crown, signifying Liberty’s rejection of a monarchical government. Above the shield is a globe supporting a bald eagle, the official U.S. emblem. On a banner below is the state motto. Excelsior (“Ever Upward”).

 

New York City: Capital of the world

 

There’s nothing else quite like New York City. It’s in a class by itself. London may be about the same size. Paris may be more elegant; Rio de Janeiro may have more magnificent surroundings.  Yet New York probably has the best claim to be called “the capital of the world.” As many people have said, New York has just about everything.

    Why is New York a world center? Size alone entitles it to a place among the leading cities of the earth. Tokyo, the world’s largest metropolis, has more than 9,000,000 residents. London, in second place has a population of over 8,000,000. New York City’s inhabitants numbered 7,781,984 in 1960. But the population of New York City proper does not include all the people who live outside the city limits in New York state and across the river in New Jersey—people who come to the great city to work. If you include these suburban counties, the population of this bustling area is more than 10,500,000. But New York has other claims to leadership apart from it’s large size. Here you will find the United Nations housed in its fine buildings on the East River. Wall Street is the financial capital of the world without a doubt. As in the old days when all roads led to Rome, or later to London, so today all roads lead to New York City.

 

What is further proof that New York is the prophetic city? What are her ports, mountains, music of harpers, and sorceries? How did the two Babylons use sorceries to undermine society?

    As a commercial center, New York City is unsurpassed by any other city. There is not now, nor has there ever been another city like it. It is a clothing and fashion center to buyer and seller, who are required to visit New York in their business dealings. World-famous auction houses, such as Christie’s, deal in rare gemstones and artwork on a daily basis.

    For one who wants to buy a ‘slave,’ this city, with its many pimps and prostitutes, can easily accommodate.

    New York City has a reputation as a place where human lives can be purchased through illegal adoptions.

    In criminal society, New York City is a fine city to purchase an assassin to liquidate a human life.

    The three parts which New York City consists of are Staten Island—Manhattan and the Bronx—Brooklyn and Queens.

    Collier’s Encyclopedia, Volume 14, 1957, shows these parts.

 

 

If you will notice, Babylon, New York is located close to the borough of Queens

    The Egyptian obelisk known as Cleopatra’s Needle stands in Central Park in New York City. This obelisk is part of Babylonian worship and was the Tower of Nimrod which supposedly reached high to heaven to bring down the power of God-Baal, or Baal-Zebub, lord of the (heavenly) habitation to their worshipers.

 

The Egyptian obelisk called Cleopatra’s Needle stands in Central Park.

It dates from 1600 B.C.

 

How fitting for John in describing this city to say; “…I sit as a Queen and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”

    From Funk and Wagnall’s Reference Encyclopedia, Volume 18, 1959-1960, page 651, one can see a sky view of part of this Great City. One can see it is both, a major port and a huge city built on the seaside. As an example of importance of this fact, Baltimore, Maryland and London are major ports, but they are not located directly on the sea. Many other cities are located on the sea, but are not major ports.

Revelation 18:17-19—

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 the sea, stood afar off,

18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!

19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate.

 

New York. George Washington, traveling with Gov. George Clinton through New York, remarked that this new state might become the “seat of the empire.” Whether the state’s popular name came from this comment is not known, but for many years New York has been called the “Empire State.”

    The state richly deserves this title. Although only 29th among the states in area, New York State is first in population. It has nearly 15 million residents, about 10 per cent of all the people in the United States. It also ranks first among the states in manufacturing, construction, and wholesale and retail trade.

 

The People of New York

 

New York is predominantly an urban state, with about four out of five of its residents living in cities and towns. New York City alone has nearly 8 million people, or about one half of the state’s population. This city, together with the two Long Island counties of Nassau and Suffolk, and Westchester County to the city’s north, have about two thirds of all the people in New York State.

    The population upstate is about 5,500,000. These people reside in cities and towns chiefly along or near the Hudson River and the route of the Erie Division of the New York State Barge Canal. Those in rural areas cultivate farms located principally in river valley or gently rolling country.

    For many years New York City has been the chief gateway for immigrants entering the United States.  As a result New York State has a much larger foreign-born population than any other state. It’s older stock includes such names as the Dutch Van Rensselaers, Roosevelts, Schuylers, and Stuyvesants,  German Astors, English Clintons, Scottish Livingstons…

 

Light Of A Candle

 

Revelation 18:23—

    And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee…

 

Older translations of the bible, such as the King James Version which was written before electricity was discovered, make this verse difficult to understand in the context John wrote.

    The reader is reminded that John is speaking of a city here. It is a city bearing a distinctive light. John was using this light to identify this city to the reader hundreds of years ago.

    Modern translations, such as the New International Version Interlinear, Greek-English New Testament, by Zondervan Corp., make this much clearer.

 

 

Light Of A Lamp!

 

LIBERTY ENLIGHTENING THE WORLD

 

Belloe’s Island, where the Statue of Liberty stands, is where the light of a lamp shines.

    John specifically says… “The light of a lamp shall shine no more in thee….” Is there any other city in all the world that holds a lamp to incoming travelers?

 

The Mountains Were Not Found

 

Revelation 16:17-21—

17 And the seventh Malak poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the Temple of Heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done.”

18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

19 And the Great City, which has three parts, and the cities of the nations, fell. And great Babylon came in remembrance before Yahweh, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of hail; for the plague thereof was exceedingly great.

 

John, when describing the destruction of this city, had never seen a skyscraper. How else would John have described them?

    Collier’s Encyclopedia, Volume 16, 1959, shows what John might have seen in his vision of this city. What majestic mountains these were!

Every year thousands of people from all over the world visit the strikingly modern United Nations headquarters on the banks of the East River in New York City. But the beautiful glass and steel buildings are only a symbol. The United Nations is a world organization whose power lies only in the willingness of its members to meet together, discuss and then suggest a plan of action on the particular problem before them. As a forum (and perhaps a safety valve) for the statesmen of the world, it has played and continues to play an important role of the crucial issues of our time—Indonesia, Korea, Suez, the Congo, disarmament, to name just a few. Under the circumstances it is not at all surprising that the United Nations should have its detractors as well as its admirers. Some criticize it for doing too little, some for doing too much. One thing is certain, however; since its foundation in 1945 the United Nations has more than doubled its membership. To many of the new members acceptance means introduction to a complex new world in which they will learn much.

 

The Broken Promise of the United Nations

 

Foreign ministers and diplomats from 157 nations are convened this month in New York for the 38th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations. Speeches resound in the huge auditorium. A thick layer of blue smoke hangs over the crowd at the bar in the Delegates Lounge. Nearby, in the spacious, dimly lit halls of the Conference Building, deputy delegates and assorted functionaries curl up in over-stuffed chairs for long naps, with newspapers draped over their faces. In the Secretariat Building, soaring above the East River, extravagantly paid bureaucrats churn out a flood of memoranda, reports and propaganda.

    Unfortunately, all this rhetoric, diplomatic shoulder-rubbing and paper productivity will have few of the effects envisioned by the brightest minds of a war-weary world when they founded the organization in 1945. For what the U.N. was intended to be it is not. What it was intended to do it has not done. In the waning years of its fourth decade, it has become instead a frustration, corrupted, profligate and—in the words of former U.S. Ambassador Daniel Patrick Moynihan—“dangerous place.”

    The following Special Report reviews how this “instrument for world peace and security” reached its present sorry state, and details what must be done to return it to its original ideals.

 

Music Of Harpers

 

After the destruction of this city befalls:

Revelation 18:8

Therefore, shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is Yahweh our Mighty One who judgeth her.

 

He says the voice of harpers and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters shall be heard no more at all in thee (Revelation 18:22).

    The New York Metropolitan Opera Company and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra are world-renowned, but after the seventh vial they will never be heard in the city again.

Revelation 18:20-22

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; Yahweh hath avenged you on her.

21 And a mighty Malak (angel) took up a stone like a great mill-

stone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that Great City Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

 

Craftsman of whatever craft…” is self explanatory. New York City is a center of Arts and Crafts, from gem setting to fine paintings.

    “…And the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee,” signifying the factories and heavy industry will not be heard again in this destroyed city.

 

Sorceries

 

Revelation 18:23—

…for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

 

The Greek word translated sorceries is #5331 in the Greek Dictionary of Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and means medication, pharmacy, and sorcery, witchcraft.

    By sorceries are all nations deceived.

Revelation 18:23

…for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

 

Are not all the merchant medical doctors considered as the great men of the earth?

    But as John knew, people are deceived into believing the medical doctors can make them live forever. Many people look to science and their doctors to save their physical bodies, just as they look to this Babylonian system of government by the people and of the people, to bring them peace. But this world will have neither peace nor salvation through any other than Yahweh.

    In December 6, 1982 issue of the U.S. News and World Report an article was published entitled, Doctor’s Dilemma, Treat or Die? Part of the introductory headlines read… “High technology tools of medicine that can keep people alive but offer little hope for recovery are creating hard ethical choice for doctors and patients as well as federal health officials.”

    Almost 300 billion dollars a year is spent in the U.S. on medical cures. The plain hard facts are that doctors

cannot cure anyone. Doctors can only work along with the bodies’ defenses, or give drugs that hide the symptoms. Sadly, most doctors only treat symptoms and never are able to find the cause, giving false hope to the critically ill.

    Life comes from Yahweh alone and only Yahweh can make life eternal.    

    Through the false hope inspired by Satan, man will continue believing that sorceries, as John called it, will prolong their lives.

    The doctors admit, “There comes a time when you recognize that you can keep pumping blood and keep a body functioning, but it is not a life.” U.S. News and World Report, December 6, 1982.

 

The Two Babylons Connected Through Drugs

 

U.S. News and World Report

 

“After years of hesitation, Italy and the Roman Catholic Church finally are facing up to a problem long concealed behind a barrier of silence, lies and corruption…the Mafia.” Once little more than a local protection racket centered on the island of Sicily, the Mafia has become one of the world’s leading drug entrepreneurs.

    Today, its activities are generating profits in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Its tentacles reach into virtually every corner of Italian life and it has become one of the major sources of heroin entering the United States.

    In the U.S. the 25 active families of the Mafia, of LA COSA NOSTRA, are estimated to gross up to 200 billion dollars a year from the kinds of crime with which it is usually associated: gambling, arson, loan-sharking, and drug-trafficking and tens of millions more.

    Up to 60% of heroin reaching the U.S. is thought to be processed in Mafia-run laboratories on the island of Sicily. The value of this trade runs to about 6 billion dollars annually.

    Most of this money, generated in America, returns to Italy to be laundered by corrupt bankers and invested by Mafioso in legitimate business.

    Heroin, after being refined in Sicily, is moved by ship or air to the U.S. It is no coincidence that the

New York-Rome-Palermo flight is know in Sicily as the Godfather.

    [Sorcery means drugs and those who deal in drugs.]

    “Police on Sicily are said to have discovered four processing laboratories, each capable of producing 110 pounds of high-grade heroin a week-worth about 12 million dollars on New York streets.”

 

It is plain to see that when New York is destroyed the major drug distribution area will be wiped out.

 

Our Numbering System

 

The numbering system in America today is the Arabic system, which employs Hindu-Arabic numerals, as Webster’s Dictionary confirms:

 

Arabic numbers the figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and the 0 (zero), orig. used in India: also called Hindu-Arabic numerals.

 

According to The Bible and Theological Dictionary, 1833, the eastern and northern parts of Arabia were first peopled by numerous families of Cush, the father of Nimrod, who was against Yahweh, Genesis 10:9.

 

Arabia, or at least the eastern and northern parts of it, were first peopled by some of the numerous families of Cush, who appear to have extended themselves, or to have given their name as the land of Cush, or Asiatic Ethiopia, to all the country from the Indus on the east, to the borders of Egypt on the west, and from Armenia on the north to Arabia Deserta on the south. By these Cushites, whose first plantations were on both sides of the Euphrates and Gulf of Persia, and who were the first that traversed the desert of Arabia, the earliest commercial communications were established between the east and the west.

 

Since Yahweh has given us the number 666, to identify a man, we can also use this number to identify Satan, who controls this man.

    By using the Arabic numbering system and the English language, we discover many works of Satan numerically evolve (gammatria) to 666.

 

The Number Of A Man

 

Yahweh’s number is 13, but man’s number is 6. To find the gammatria to man we must add the number 6 to each successive letter of the alphabet…A=6, B=12, C=18, D=24, E=30, etc.

    It is interesting to note the Babylonians used the number 6 as the base to their numbering system.

    By using this system, we find the two words, Lucifer (which is the same as Satan) and Hell and Hades (which is the grave) equals to 666.

 

    L    =    72

    U    =    126

    C    =    18                H    =    48

    I    =    54    H    =    48    A    =    6

    F    =    36    E    =    30    D    =    24

    E    =    30    L    =    72    E    =    30

    R    =    108    L    =       72    S    =    114

            444            222            222

 

444 + 222 = 666

 

By this same system and the words, Mark of the Beast the number is computed.

 

                            B    =    12

    M    =    78                E    =    30

    A    =    6                A    =    6    

    R    =    108    O    =    90    S    =    114    

    K    =       66    F    =       36    T    =    120

            258            126            282

 

258 + 126 + 282 = 666

 

So, we see many things belong to Satan add up to 666. Now compute the words, New York, which many aspire to be the Modern Babylon.

                Y    =    150

    N    =    84    O    =    90

    E    =    30    R    =    108

    W    =    138    K    =       66

            252            414

 

252 + 414 = 666

 

Not only is it possible to identify Nimrod, the man, through the number 666, but it is also possible to identify the second Babylon, New York, which will fall in the Last Days. It is also a part of the second beast.

    The same governmental system ruled the first beast and is also ruling the second beast. The first beast was ruled by one religion—one horn. The second beast was ruled by two religions—two horns.

    The one religion of the first beast thought to change the Laws of Yahweh into pagan observances (One religion-Roman Catholic).

    The two religions of the second beast are identified as the daughters of the great whore. The great whore, of course, is the Roman Catholics and her daughters are Protestants. These two religions are the two horns ruling the second beast.

    The Catholic-Protestant (two horns) of the second beast teaches, “We now have a license to sin,” because they teach “we do not need to keep the Laws of Yahweh.”

    Lasciviousness is greatly condemned in your Bible. This is word #766 in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Greek Dictionary and means licentiousness, which is a license to sin.

    The second beast teaches the undeserved pardon and mercy of Our Creator is a cover for all sin. Teaching that men may sin in safety, they need only to believe, then they will have the undeserved pardon abounding in the evangel.

    This is totally opposite from what the Holy Scriptures teach us. Yahweh condemns lasciviousness. In each Scripture in the bible where the word lasciviousness is mentioned (II Corinthians 12:21; Mark 7:22; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 4:19; I Kepha [Peter] 4:3; Yahdah 4 [Jude]),  it is condemned.

    Clarke’s Commentary on lasciviousness, found in each of these verses, says:

 

Turning the grace of our God into Lasciviousness] Making the grace and mercy of God a covering for crimes; intimating that man may sin safely who believe in the Gospel, because in that Gospel grace abounds.

 

These Two Horns in the Last Days, as Scripture shows, will turn against and persecute those who obey the Laws of Yahweh.

    This persecution is being restrained by Yahweh at this present time as we see in the following Scripture:

II Thessalonians 2:7

For the Mystery of Iniquity doth already work, only he who now restraineth will restrain, until he be taken out of the way.

 

This power is being restrained until the set number of the Servants of Yahweh has been fulfilled. They will be called and sealed with Yahweh’s Mark in their foreheads and hands, instead of the beast’s mark in their foreheads and hands.

Revelation 7:2-3

2 And I saw another Malak (angel) ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Yahweh: and he cried with a loud voice to the four malakim, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the Servants of the Living Yahweh in their foreheads.

 

After this number of men and women are called and sealed, this power, which is Satan herself, will be released.

Revelation 13:7

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

 

Blood Of The Prophets

 

Revelation 18:24

And in her was found the blood of the Prophets, and of Saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

 

This was not to say that all the Saints that have ever been killed were killed in that city. John is saying this same Babylonian system is responsible for the killing of all the believers that have ever been killed. They were killed for the simple reason, they did not accept the Babylonian way, but followed Yahweh’s Laws.

    As we have shown in Chapter 5, Nimrod’s way of converting others was through terror and tyranny. Killing in the name of religion was the norm. The Great Inquisition is a perfect example of killing and terror.

    Scripture shows another persecution of the believers will take place before Yahshua returns. This was revealed to John through the seven seals of Revelation. Through the fifth seal opened by the Lamb, John was inspired to write:

Revelation 6:9-11

9 And when he had opened the Fifth Seal, I saw under the alter the souls of them that were slain for the word of Yahweh, and for the testimony which they held;

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Yahweh, Holy and True, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season until the full number of their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be completed.

 

Compare Revelation 6:11 with Revelation 13:15 to know why this persecution takes place.

Revelation 13:15

And he had power to give life unto the idol (likeness) of the beast, that the idol of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the idol (likeness) of the beast should be killed.

 

These believers are killed because they will refuse to accept the mark of the beast. They refuse to worship in this false Babylonian system. They will only worship Yahweh and will only follow Yahweh’s Laws.

 

Daniyl Saw This Killing Of The Saints

 

Daniyl 7:21-22

21 And I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

22 Until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time came that the Saints possessed the Kingdom.

 

We see from Revelation 13:15 and the previous Scripture in Daniyl that this beastly system will make war against the Saints, and that this war will continue until Yahshua comes the second time to stop it. Yahshua will then be the King of kings and Ruler of rulers.

      Our Savior, Yahshua, told us of this same event when His Disciples asked Him what would take place at the end of the age in Matthew 24:3. Yahshua, speaking of this end, said in:

Matthew 24:9

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you and ye shall be hated of all nations for My Name’s sake.

 

Please take note here that the true followers of Yahweh will not be loved as the churches are today, but they will actually be hated.

Revelation 19:1-2

1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, ‘AlleluYahweh; Salvation, and Glory, and Honor, and Power unto our Father.

2 For True and Righteous are His Judgments; for He hath judged the Great Whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

Revelation 9:4

And it was commanded that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the Seal of Yahweh in their foreheads.

 

The remainder of Revelation 19 tells the beautiful story of Yahshua’s coming and the gathering together of those who keep the Laws of Yahweh. All the believers who keep Yahweh’s Laws and who qualify for the Kingdom will have Eternal Life and will enter into the city of Yahweh.

Revelation 22:14

Blessed are they that do His Commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter into the City of Yahweh.

 

All the believers who are the Saints of Yahweh, who keep Yahweh’s Laws will refuse to accept the mark of this beastly system that Satan has placed on all men. Those believers will qualify for the Kingdom of Yahweh, and receive the blessings and privileges of the Government of Yahweh.

    For many years I have looked to see how this martyrdom of the Saints could possibly take place in a land such as the United States of America. I know there are small persecutions of those who follow Yahweh’s Laws in school systems and city governments. There are minor persecutions of the poor and minority groups here in the United States. At times there have been killings, but never on an all-out wide-open scale.

    Our public laws and U.S. constitutions are against such atrocities at the present time. The persecution that does befall now is slightly hidden and underhanded, but Prophecy shows it will not remain that way.

    So, I watched the news media for clues which indicate the changes to take place. For years The House of Yahweh has warned everyone to watch for a restoration of power in the Roman Catholic Church, which will head this persecution; and to watch her daughters, the Protestant churches, which will give their power to this beastly system. Only recently have we seen this Prophecy take shape.

    The start of the restoration of the Catholic power started with the Pope’s campaign for publicity. At this time he has been in the news almost daily trying to organize and combine all the world’s religions.

 

But Prophecy Shows More

 

Prophecy shows that the religious powers will once again rule the political systems of the whole world. Now I see the vehicle which religion and politics can again rule and develop as Prophecy shows.

 

The Peace Computer

 

The idea of using computers for peace started in 1978 with Dr. Henry Heimlich, developer of the Heimlich Method of dislodging obstructions in the throat. Dr Heimlich says computers could make the world breathe easier.

    In a ‘Computers for Peace’ proposal, he asked then President Jimmy Carter, and the current leaders of Egypt and Israyl, to consider this proposal at a September 5, 1978 meeting they were scheduled to convene. The Associated Press reported on this on August 29, 1978.  

    Dr. Heimlich suggested that computers could analyze resources and demonstrate the advantages of co-operation among nations. He said the method is surely more positive than present traditional attempts at arms con- trol by regulating the number of warheads and missiles.

  Dr. Heimlich envisioned using the computers to supply the world’s needs. Recently the Computer for Peace has come into a totally different meaning of bringing peace to the world.

    Brother Austin David Carrol, a member of the Christian Brothers Roman Catholic Order made known in a presentation of June 4, 1982 a plan of computerized peacemaking. Carrol holds a Doctorate in Computer Science from New York University. He is also Director of Data Processing for the New York Archdiocese.

    This fully outlined plan was presented to the Pope by letter. The pope approved this plan, which means this plan will advance with the wealth of the Catholic Church.

    The Peace Computer is located in Spring Lake, New Jersey. The directors of this mansion center are Cyrus Vance—former Secretary of State under Jimmy Carter; Kurt Waldheim—former Secretary General of the United Nations; Peter Grace—advisor to Ronald Reagan; and Clare Booth Luce.

    This computer will be programmed from the minds of top officials of many different countries. Russia is included, for Brother Carrol has already met with Russian officials at Cambridge, England. He has also met with 28 other countries to discuss this system for peace. These officials’ minds will be picked at Spring Lake in a process known as the Delphi Technique. These officials are the elite in the study of war and peace from their respective countries. Alexander Haig, former Secretary of Defense, who will represent the United States, is one of the first officials on the agenda. Haig is Catholic. He also has a brother who is a Jesuit priest and head of the Jesuit University.

 

The Mechanics Of The Peace Computer

 

The computer will work off a new satellite channel paid for by the Roman Catholic Church. Each country participating will consult this computer when problems arise; then, the computer will work out peaceful solutions. Each side will then either comply or suffer the consequences from all other participating countries. The consequences will be determined by a third party to resolve conflicts. Brother Carrol is hoping the Roman Catholic Church will be that third party.

    He said the Roman Catholic Church would be especially suited to administer the computer, as an impartial third party. Moral persuasion would be brought by the leaders of large religions or by the Pope, to any nation which fails to comply with the computers directives.

    Carrol said, “No nation would refuse the Pope’s commands.” Even the Soviet Union would obey because of the Russian Orthodox Church. He also said the Catholic Cardinal to the United States is the military vicar to the United States, meaning he has authority over all the Catholic Chaplains. Carrol said the majority of West Point cadets are Catholics. Most of the top military leaders in the United States and other western nations are Catholic, and would do what the Church commands.

    Few people realize the vast powers of the Vatican today. The Vatican is a unique institution. It is both Church and State. It is very much an international power.

    Besides being head of the world’s 750 million Catholics, the Pope is also the Sovereign of a legally constituted country, known as Vatican City. From there the Pope sends and receives ambassadors, just like any other leader of any other country. The Pope exchanges ambassadors called ‘Apostolic Nuncios’ with some 90 countries. He has also assigned Vatican Diplomats to the United Nations and the European Economic Community.

    The Vatican is one of the best informed centers of international affairs in the world. From the Papal Palace at St Peter’s Square, the Vatican’s Secretariat of State monitors world events, conveys instructions to the Vatican Diplomats abroad, and advises the Pope of international issues.

    The Vatican is once again using its political powers as a means of promoting peace. Like it or not, Prophecies show the Vatican will become a major power in international politics.

    The center for the Computer for Peace is located at 1711 Ocean Avenue in Spring Lake, New Jersey, but it is under the New York Archdiocese. This means it is controlled by the archbishop of New York.

    Earlier in Chapter 8, we saw how the number 666 could identify Nimrod, who started this Babylonian system. Later, the Catholic Pope, who is the successor of Nimrod, also has the number 666.

    Earlier in Chapter 5, we saw how the United States is the likeness of the original beast set up by Nimrod. The governments in these two systems are the same.

    We have seen also in Chapter 9 the city of New York hosts the world parliament of today…the United Nations. We saw that New York City is the base for international brokers and the one-world money system. New York City is called by many “The Modern Tower of Babel.” The gammatria of New York is 666.

    Now, is this Peace Computer, controlled by the Roman Catholic Church, which is controlled by the Pope (666), from New York (666), supposed to bring peace? The gammatria for computer is as follows:

 

                C    =    18

                O    =    90

                M    =    78

                P    =    96

                U    =    126

                T    =    120

                R    =    108

                        666

 

Only Yahweh’s Government and Yahweh’s Laws can bring peace to this world. Only Yahweh can save this world from the destruction that is to take place in the next few years.

    Man’s efforts without the blessings of Yahweh will only bring more destruction of mankind. Yahshua the Messiah knew this, and told us what would take place in the end  time. It will be a time of trouble such as was not since the world began.

Matthew 24:21-22

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days be shortened, there shall no flesh be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

 

Daniyl was also speaking of this same time, because there cannot be two times of trouble and each one be the greatest time of trouble.

Daniyl 12:1

And at that time shall Michayl stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of thy people, and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation even to that time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered everyone that shall be found written in the book.

 

Computers are programmed by man. No matter how much programming is done, the knowledge of the computer is still no greater than the minds used to program it. If these minds were unable to bring peace to the world, when there were no computers; then these same minds which program the computer can never program peace.

    The trouble spoken of by Yahshua Messiah and Daniyl will start when the programmed instructions given by the computer, programmed by a man, is enforced by the churches and governments. When the computer’s solution is that all the world must be of one mind meaning, all the world must worship as the computer instructs and governments try to enforce that worship, those who refuse to do this will suffer.

Revelation 13:15

And he had power to give life to the idol (likeness) of the beast, that the idol of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the idol of the beast should be killed.

 

This was all shown to John the Revelator and was recorded for our warning. Daniyl also warns us in:

Daniyl 8:24-25

24 And his power will be mighty, but not by his own power (Satan’s power): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall increase and practice and shall destroy the mighty and the Holy People.

25 And through his policy he shall cause deceit to increase in his hand: and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

 

May Yahweh bless your understanding.

 

Love, True Love,
