We know that he alone is able to open what no one else can and he, too, can close up what no one else can close up. "Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia. This is the message from the one who is holy and true, the one who has the key of David. What he opens, no one can close; and what he closes, no one can open." Rev. 3:7
I am often reminded how just four short years ago, in the build-up to the 2008 election, I found myself asking many people if it were possible that Barack Obama was the anti-Christ. I also had quite a few conversations with other like-minded Christians as to why the USofA was not mentioned, specifically, in the prophecies of the Bible. It was quite often the opinion that America cannot be found in Bible prophecy because being a Christian nation, a large portion of the population is removed at the occurrence of the rapture.
I have since come to see those opinions as quite laughable. I learned about the rapture theory in my 20's and prior to that time, I don't believe that I had ever heard anything other than references to "Jesus is coming back someday" in my childhood. In the course of the last three years, I have flip/flopped back and forth in my belief about a rapture and when it occurs, so I am not trying to get into a discussion about whether or not there is one; I do believe there is one; I am just not 100% convinced about when it happens.
Also, in the course of the last three years, my faith in Christ, my hope in Christ and love for Christ has matured and my knowledge of who He is and what He has done for me, my knowledge of the Bible and what end-time events are comprised of has increased greatly. I often pray that God will only let me take in what is His truth and that if I start reading something that is not His truth, He not allow it to just not take root in my mind and not hold my interest. I believe He is faithful to do this for me, and I always look to my own scripture reading/studying and the prompting of His Holy Spirit to confirm anything which resonates in my spirit.
That being said, I would like to share with you where I have been led in recent days and what I believe God showed me this morning.
As you can see in my last post, I was greatly distressed at the passing of one of my mentors from the past three years, David Wilkerson. Sarah Beveridge, author of the blog, Believers Journey published a piece written by one of her readers entitled As in the Days of Noah - The Righteous Methuselah of Our Time which said, in part: "I am reminded that the name Methuselah means "when he is dead, it will come." The same year that righteous Methuselah died is when the flood came upon the earth. So that is one example of how God removes special servants before a great change in world events."

Then there was, of course, the big, splashy, well covered wedding of Prince William and Her Royal Highness Katherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge which occurred on Friday, April 29. Look Up Fellowship presented a blog about The Prince, The Pope and the President which set forth these startling statements:
A CLONED JESUS!?! THE ULTIMATE COUNTERFEIT TO CHRIST!?!
I know this is something that has been explored by many others in the past. Actually, soon I'll be publishing a new book review here on a series of Christian Fiction novels about the end times that were written and published long before the wildly popular Left Behind series even hit the market.
To quickly recap, it's called The Christ Clone Trilogy and it should be required reading for students of Bible prophecy particularly those who are well aware of what's known as "Predictive Programming" (a.k.a. "mass conditioning") via the Arts, Hollywood, and Pop Culture.
Curiously enough, it was written by -- get this -- a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). End times, CIA, written/published BEFORE the Left Behind book!?! Yeah, if that's not enough to get your pulse racing and your brain firing, then I don't know what will.
All kidding aside, and without giving anything away that the title of the series doesn't already do, the author portrays the coming Antichrist of his fictional plot as being a man who will be cloned from the DNA present on the famous Shroud of Turin! Do I have your attention now? I thought so.
Look, we all know how much more advanced Science and Technology is in the "Black Ops" world of "Secret Societies" and "Shadow Governments" that are all beholden to Satan as his loyal subjects (whether they realize it or not). The point is that it's definitely a plausible scenario even if the world has been led to believe that humans haven't been cloned yet.
Gosh, if we wanted to we could go far off on a tangent right here and explore all the compelling evidence that seems to suggest (not confirm, but seems to suggest) that President Barack Hussein Obama is somehow a clone of an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh (as incredible as it sounds). But you'll have to investigate that possibility for yourself at another time. Right now, I have to show you something that will blow your mind.
Ok, so why in the world am I even bringing all of this up in an article about the symbolism surrounding Prince William? Well, because of an amazing email I received over a year ago that I just recently remembered while putting the finishing touches on this entry from one sister in Christ who shared the following with me...
Now on to the Shroud of Turin. The fact that you mention this very thing in your email could be an indication that it really is true that satan will possess the cloned body of our Lord (I prayed for clarity about this, because it's so huge). It's just something satan would love to do, just to mock our Lord and His Father in heaven even more. That brings me to Prince William. The info below will show you how much he resembles the face on the shroud of Turin. Remember that satan offered Jesus all the earthly kingdoms if He would only bow to him? Well, I believe, based on many sources on the Internet, that the Windsors and other royals and aristocracy, like Lady Diana's family the Spencers have done just that: sell their soul to satan in exchange for the kingdoms of the earth. I believe the Windsors already offered up Diana in a satanic ritual under the overpass in Paris where a flame or torch is situated. And that Prince William will be offered up to satan as well. He will probably be the next King of Britain, instead of Charles, who supposedly has too many health problems to become King. The info below is astounding to say the least! Again, have a look at Prince William, and how he does not look at all like Charles, or his brother Henry. He starts to look more and more Jewish, actually....... (copy and paste links below into your browser) It's a lengthly email, but I trust it will be helpful.

Then Sunday night/Monday morning, the world is stunned when President Obama presents us with the news that the US government had ordered a military operation which killed Osama Bin Laden. Reading about this story led me to this article written by the The Latter Days blog. This excellent post includes the following:
Thou Art the Man!
"And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, as the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die: And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.
And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man.
Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things.
Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? Thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.
Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun." II Samuel 12:5-12
It is times like these when I wish I had a bridge to sell, for there seem to be numerous people ready to buy it. All it took was for there to be a public announcement that Osama Bin Laden was killed, and folks are celebrating in the streets. Are you kidding me??
It is reported that Osama Bin Laden is behind 9/11, and everyone believes it. It is reported that he has been found & killed, and people start rejoicing. Want to see a body? Oh, I am sorry; it was already disposed of in the sea.
I am not saying that Bin Laden is not dead; after all, there been "reports" of his dieing/death for the past several years. I am simply noticing what good little puppets many have become. We are so accustomed to swallowing what we are fed, that there is no longer even a second taken to process or digest the information given or examine evidence. We simply hear it and assume it is true because "they" said so. Has anyone ever heard of the War of the Worlds radio broadcast?
Tell me people, if God said that we are "more noble" to test for truth that which is spoken about Him (even by His own apostles), then shouldn't we at least be as circumspect in regards to words about men? (Acts 17:11) Are the words of men more trustworthy - and therefore require less scrutiny - than the words of God? Foolishness!
Yet, some will say that even questioning the veracity of world reports makes one a "conspiracy theorist". I tell you that the Scriptures say the god of this world is the father of lies! (John 8:44; II Corinthians 4:4) Do you really believe that??
Again, I am not saying that Bin Laden is alive; such matters not as we will all see death one day. I am urging people to stop being so quick to put more trust in flesh than is placed in the word of God. Don't be so quick to believe, internalize, and act upon what you hear, but by God's Spirit seek a revelation of truth for what we need to know in this hour. And that goes for everything. The one recurring theme that God uses to describe the end times is deception; and that is for a reason.
The issue is not really about whether a particular claim is true. The point is to be unmovable and unmoved until we hear from the Lord.
Nonetheless, such a turn of events could represent a significant moment in the history of the world...but perhaps not for the reasons that one may think. Pastor Gary C. Price of Omega Church & Ministries Center put it this way:
Saints this is the final straw that broke the camel's back. As thousands of Americans flow into the streets to celebrate the killing of the iconic figure "Osama Bin Laden", don't be too quick to rejoice. The killing of an accused murderer - who allegedly killed 3000 Americans on 9/11 - also pronounces the final judgment on this nation.
The same United States that has killed a supposed "mass murderer" has also legalized the murder of 53 million baby Americans in their mother's wombs. Every year 1.7 million babies are slaughtered in this nation and the same people rejoicing in the streets because Osama Bin Laden is dead say absolutely nothing about the murder of these defenseless babies.
So now, spiritual forces have been put in motion to bring final judgment to this nation. We can expect severe supernatural occurrences since we celebrated the death of this man and everyone rejoices over his death; not because Osama Bin Laden is a righteous man, but because the same government that killed him has also killed 53 million Americans.
When David killed Uriah in the Scriptures, God let David pronounce his own penalty on himself. God killed David's first born son as a result of David's killing an innocent man like Uriah. Uriah was Bathsheba's husband and David had committed adultery with her, conceiving a child. That child had to die because of King David's sin.
We have just witnessed a nation pronouncing final judgment upon itself and most don't even know what has happened. When you killl a man for killing Americans and you have also killed 53 million Americans, then the judgment has been finalized and God has already moved to execute His decrees
The next piece of the puzzle included a couple of studies done by William Males who writes the Gates of the City blog. The first one is entitled Biblical End Times Players of Revelation and which he followed up with The Eighth Beast. You should read the entire well-thought-out articles, but here is the portion pertinent to what I am looking at here:
Therefore Assyria is represented by the second head of the beast. Let’s take a fresh look at the present order of those heads representing the beasts which we have clarified. First we have the five that are fallen at the time of the Apostle John’s vision -
Then we have the “one is” which would be Rome, the sixth head represents the beast Daniel said “shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” For that is what Rome did to Israel in 70 A.D. At that time, Jerusalem was destroyed according to the prediction of our Lord, and it was never again in the sole possession of the Jews until after the conclusion of World War II.
But who had possession of the land back then? Who had gain possession of it prior to Israel’s rebirth? The British Empire had it. It was said that “The sun never sets on the British Empire.” England had conquered so much that all around the world there were subdued provinces of the British Empire. It was in 1948 that Israel was “born again” on land that was part of the British Empire. It was also because of England that America sought to get involved in World War II. Plus, it was World War II that brought the sudden decline of the British Empire and gave America it’s occasion to rise to global supremacy.
So if we look at the whole list of those nations or empires which have had a direct relationship with Israel, either by taking her into captivity or having dominion over them and their land, it would be as follows:
(Israel was not)
But look now what the scriptures says:
Rev. 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Now, “the eighth” is either (1) a direct branch or decent from the seventh, or (2) it is a mixture of the seven being an end time conglomeration of multitudes, languages, nations and tongues, as a nation existing as an international melting pot, a land made up of immigrants.
Either way, America alone comfortably wears this Cinderella slipper.
Mr. Males also has written a really good disertation on the subject of America not being present in prophecy HERE as does The End Times Forecaster HERE.
Further, I encourage you to watch this video which shows how events in the Middle East are lining up with the book of Daniel.
And if you get an hour or so, please be sure to check out this video and its subsequent videos of Alex Jones of Prison Planet interviewing a former US government insider about the death of Osama Bin Laden:
In summary, from all the above, I believe the Lord showed me this morning that America is the beast that John saw rising from the sea and how this country is involved in the re-designing of Middle East nations in order to bring about end times prophecies.
I know this is long, and I'm sorry for that, but hopefully, it helps you to see what I see transpiring in the world today.
