It’s not only evangelical Christians who are sensing that something has changed in the world, and that we may be entering the very last days.
Muslims are also eagerly awaiting their messiah.
In the latest evidence of this messianic fervor, a mainstream Sunni Muslim website has decreed that the Islamic messiah, called the Mahdi, will appear this year or in 2016 and that the Muslim Jesus will return in 2022 to conquer the world for Islam.
DiscoveringIslam.org and the End Times Research Center have calculated that the “first phase” of the end of time will begin soon and lead to the “Day of Judgment” in seven years.
The estimates were derived from “the latest research” into numerical analysis of the Quran, Hadith, Arabic words and historical events,” according to DiscoveringIslam.org.
“The Messenger of Allah [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam] informed the Companions of everything that would occur until the Day of Resurrection,” the website reports.
“Based on our numerical analysis of the Quran and Hadith, the official beginning of the End of Time and the coming of the Imam Mahdi will most likely be in 2015 (or 2016) and Jesus Christ (p) will come down from Heaven to Earth in 2022, in-sha Allah (if Allah is willing),” the website reported.
The Quran and the Bible put forth end-times narratives that are similar but opposite. The Bible’s antichrist, for instance, resembles Islam’s messiah while Muslims view the Jesus of the Bible as their antichrist or “Dajjal.” The Quran teaches that Jesus returns to earth but for a very different purpose – to “break the cross” and convert the world’s Christians to Islam.
Bible teacher Joel Richardson underscores the inverted end-time views of the two faiths in his New York Times-best-selling book, “The Islamic Antichrist,” and his documentary film, “End Times Eyewitness.”
Richardson is an expert in eschatology, or the order of end-times events, as presented in Christianity, Judaism and Islam. He points to Jesus’ warnings in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that false teachers and false prophets would arise in the last days to deceive many.
Richardson believes Muhammad is one of those false prophets. But the religion he founded, Islam, must be taken seriously because 1.4 billion people believe in its teachings, which are apocalyptic and getting more so, Richardson said. In fact, it’s impossible to understand what inspires and motivates Islamic radicals such as ISIS or al-Qaida if you aren’t familiar with their eschatology.
But it’s not just the radicals who believe in the Islamic teachings about the apocalypse, he said.
“It is frequently claimed that those who believe these things are but the tiny minority of radicals,” Richardson told WND. “But what the (Discovering Islam) article reveals, is that even many mainstream Muslims now believe that the last days are upon us.”
What is this Shemitah business all about?
Many Muslims across the globe see the unfolding events in Syria and Iraq as proof that the prophetic traditions of Islam are coming to pass and will soon lead to the return of the Muslim Jesus and the Mahdi.
As previously reported by WND last October, an influential Turkish Muslim media personality and prolific author, Adnan Aktar, said he expects the Mahdi to appear in Istanbul.
Aktar said the Mahdi will communicate with spirit beings called the djinn, who will help Muslims prevail throughout the world.
ISIS expects a major battle to occur near the Syrian city of Dabiq between the soldiers of Allah and the “Romans,” who are seen as the leaders of the infidel Western powers fighting alongside apostate Muslims. Some analysts have said ISIS could be trying to hasten this battle by goading the U.S. into putting boots on the ground in Syria.
According to the Islamic view the soldiers of Allah will win this battle, ushering in a period marked by the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and the dominance of Muslims globally.
Check out Joel Richardson’s two ground-breaking books, “The Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast,” which have won acclaim from Bible scholars the world over and led many to reconsider the view that the Antichrist will arise out of Europe.
“Even if none of these things are true, there is power in prophecy, and the sense of divine endorsement that this empowers many with will have horrific consequences in the days ahead,” Richardson said. “When Christians think about Jesus warning of the rise of false prophets in the last days, we often think of false voices within the church. No doubt, we have plenty of such voices, shouting ‘peace and security,’ ‘all is well,’ ‘thrive and prosper,’ etc. But rarely do many Christians think of the false prophetic traditions of Islam that are misleading a large segment of mankind.”
As novelist and filmmaker Joel C. Rosenberg recently noted, the greatest danger to the world is not merely radical Islam, but apocalyptic Islam.
“In Tehran, our own president has just agreed to allow the single most apocalyptic regime in the earth to attain nuclear weapons,” Richardson said. “Never before has the term ‘existential threat’ been so real.”
This billboard showing the Imam the Muslim Jesus behind Imam Mahdi graces the Vali-Asr Square in Tehran. It was completed in late 2014.
Another view of the Mahdi and Muslim Jesus featured prominently on Vali-Asr Square in Tehran, Iran.
Truly, the world is entering unchartered territory, he said.
“Now is the time for Christians, whose prophetic traditions are true, to rise up in confidence knowing that the return of Jesus is drawing close, eager to proclaim the Gospel and bring in the final harvest while there is still time,” Richardson said.
Iran’s leaders have been speaking apocalyptically for years. In September 2012, WND reported that former President Mahmoud Amadinejad delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in which he claimed the table was set for a “new world order” based on rule by the coming Mahdi, also called the 12th imam in Shiite Islam.
Joel Richardson tells why he made the film “End Times Eyewitness” in video interview below.
Richardson’s documentary film interprets the events of the Arab Spring in light of biblical prophecy. He traveled throughout Turkey and the Middle East in 2013 to interview Christian, Jewish and Islamic leaders, comparing their views on the last-days apocalypse, including the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.
In a late 2014 interview with Christian radio host Reggie Sternes, Richardson said he changed the focus of his ministry after the 9/11 attacks. He says Islam represents a major challenge to Christianity, quite possibly the challenge of the age, and most Christian leaders are unprepared for that challenge.
“I’m really focused on trying to educate the Christian Church. Even in nations where Muslims are a majority, the Christian leaders, the pastors, they often don’t know how to relate to the issue of Islam,” Richardson said. “They don’t know how to train their people to respond to Islam. One thing I am absolutely convinced of is Islam is clearly the single greatest challenge the church is going to face before the return of Jesus but really it’s the greatest challenge the world is going to face in the years ahead so I want to encourage people and train people to be able to rise to meet the challenge.
“And to meet the challenge courageously, intelligently, and to give it the time that it deserves.”

Typhon — “Osiris was the son of Helios (Phra) the ‘divine offspring congenerate with the dawn’ and at the same time an incarnation of Kneph or Agathodaemon, the Good Spirit, including all his possible manifestations, either physical or moral. He represented in a familiar form the beneficent aspect of all higher emanations and in him was developed the conception of a Being purely good, so that it became necessary to set up another power as his adversary, called Seth, Baby, or Typhon to account for the injurious influences of Nature.” [Pike, op. cit., p. 588, Teachings of the 28th Degree, Knight of the Sun, or Prince Adept].
We have many in this world who revere the ancient ‘gods’ of antiquity. Take for instance the Freemasons; they call their god the “Great Architech of the Universe” but it boils down to Osiris, or otherwise known as Apollo. Pike was a well-known occulitist and Freemason!
The founder of the House of Theosophy, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, whose books were all written by her demonic Guiding Spirits in a form we call Automatic Writing, ties Thoth together for us nicely. “… Hermes, the god of wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Set, Set, and Sat-an; and that he was, furthermore, when viewed under his bad aspect, Typhon, the Egyptian Satan , who was also Set.” [Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled , Vol. I: Science, New York, Trow’s Printing and Bookbinding Company, 1877, p. 554, xxxiii. Colored Emphasis added]
I find it highly interesting that Blavatsky, like Anton LaVey in the Satanic Bible, had no trouble tying the Infernal Name, Thoth, with Satan, and especially the Egyptian Satan ! Remember Pike’s words, quoted in the very beginning, that “Masonry is identical to the ancient Mysteries”! This statement means that the Freemasons believe the same as all the Ancient Mysteries and worship the same god, Satan, albeit under different names.
Since Blavatsky mentioned another of the Infernal Names, Typhon, and has identified him as the Egyptian Satan, let us review Albert Pike once again, as we discover that Freemasonry reveres Typhon as well. (1)
Another example would be the Roman Catholic Church. No, I’m not kidding. They worship another god than the One we do! It’s no secret that their halls and subterranean paths are cluttered with idols and statues of false gods, and dead people. I believe their pantheon of gods are below the surface just the ancient Greek demi-gods.
Architecture is built with these demi-gods in mind. Our world is full of staples which coincide with this assessment. The temples were built in honor of them, and many of the features which are included in our very own churches still hold true to this statement. Our very American government has utilized forms these types of structures in our own cities.
The home of the gods was thought to be Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece. The most important deities were: Zeus, the supreme god and ruler of the sky; Hera, his wife and goddess of marriage; Athena, goddess of wisdom; Poseidon, god of the sea; Demeter, goddess of the earth; Apollo, god of the sun, law, reason, music and poetry; Artemis, goddess of the moon, the hunt and the wilderness; Aphrodite, goddess of love; Ares, God of war; Hermes, god of commerce and medicine, Hephaestus, god of fire and metalwork, and Dionysus, god of wine and fruit-bearing plants.
We season our sports from the Olympian demigods. Our Olympics are applied in just the right perfected techniques which reveal this to be true.
Our search in the universe even gives us clues as to who our elite and elect hold dear to their hearts. Apollo-Orion-Aquarius-Artemis-Calypso-Juno-Themis, are a few names to throw out there.
Here’s more if you’d like to research for yourself:
If you do your research you will soon discover that the true home of the Olympians was Atlantis.
Greek god statue mystery: 2,000 year old bronze Apollo surfaces in Gaza
I think this is a poignant reminder of what GOD tells us about Gaza (Egypt).
I pointed out in the article, “Pantheon Gods of Lucifer’s Church” that the Syrians are a bloodline which we need to acknowledge. Their leaders worship the Greek demigods of old and it is revealed in their crests, and country symbolism.
” Ashur”, “Assur”, “Assyria”, “The Assyrian” and “Assyrians”
In Jewish and Christian books and comments they many times talk about “Ashur”, “Assur”, “Assyria”, “The Assyrian” and “Assyrians”.
After the destruction of the Assyrians these terms were continuously used to express the evilness of an arbitrary Empire, country or a nation. It has nothing to do with the origin or the ethnicity, but rather to point out on the badness of an arbitrary nation. Another very important point is that after the destruction of the Assyrian Empire many people and nations didn’t know about the collapse of this strong Empire. Because of this reason some history writers considered the new inhabitants of the former Assur also as “Assyrians”.
Ashur is used in the sense of the power (satanic) angels behind the scenes, it means the ‘god’Ashur, who are constantly busy to destroy the work of God.
Assur, Assyria is used to express the manifestation of Ashur in flesh and blood. Assyria is an appellation for peoples and nations who had /have a lot of hatred towards the people of Israel. It forms also a geographical description of the former Assyrian Empire. Some writers call some Arabic countries “Assyria” (= spiritual Assur) to underline the spiritual (hate) link with the former Assyrians. The same power angels, who had ruled over Ashur, they now rule over some Arabic – and other nations to create hatred towards the people of Israel and indirectly towards the Lord God! That is exactly the reason that Holy Bible says about the hatred towards the people of Israel,, Come, they say, “let us destroy their nation, so that Israel will be forgotten for ever” (Psalms 83:4)
The Assyrian or the King of the North is very famous term which is often used by the Christian writers to describe the evilness of the empire of the antichrist. They sometimes call the antichrist “the Assyrian” to express how terrible the period of the antichrist will be.
Assyrians are the inhabitants of the spiritual Assur, it can be a arbitrary country in the world. Adolf Hitler is sometimes described as the real “Assyrian” to underline the hatred he had towards the people of Israel. (2)
Assyria, Egypt and Babylon
Now I shall continue with the discussion of Isaiah 19:23-25 “When that time comes, there will be a highway between Egypt and Assyria. The people of those two countries will travel to and fro between them, and the two nations will worship together. When that time comes, Israel will rank with Egypt and Assyria, and these three nations will be a blessing to all the world. The Lord Almighty will bless them and say, “I will bless you, Egypt My people; you Assyria, whom I created; and you Israel, My chosen people”. and Psalms 87:4 “I will include Egypt and Babylonia when I list the nations that obey Me; I will number among the inhabitants of Jerusalem the people of Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia”
Note here that the Lord God speaks of Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Tyre, Philistia and Sudan. However, the Lord does not SPEAK of: Assyrains, Egyptians, Babylonians, Tyrians, Philistines and Sudanians.
Assur (or Assyria), Egypt and Babylonia: These three countries have persecuted the people of Israel. All of them were the enemies of the Lord God. In Exodus 2:23 we read about the behaviour of Egypt,, … but the Israelites were still groaning under their slavery and cried out for help….. The answer of the Lord is then,, I have seen how cruel my people are being treated in Egypt; I have heard them cry out to be rescued from their slave-drivers (Exodus 3:7). And in Isaiah 52:3 we read,, The Sovereign Lord says to His people, “When you became slaves, no money was paid for you; in the same way nothing will be paid to set you free. When you went to live in Egypt as foreigners, you did so of your own free will; Assyria, however took you away by force and paid nothing for you. And now in Babylonia the same thing has happened….”
Please pay attention again to the three enemies of Israel, namely”: Assyria, Egypt and Babylonia!”.
Philistia: The country of the former Philistians who were constant in war with the people of Israel, the enemies of Israel. Please don’t confuse this with the present-day Arabs under the leadership of Arafat calling themselves “Palestinians” (Jeremiah 47:1-7)
Tyre: This was the trade centre of Phoenicia. This city became later a city of idols and godlessness! (2)
Now, I may not ascribe to all this man’s theories but I do believe he hits this one right on the nail!

Apollo and the Satyrs (detail), by Gustave Moreau
(1826-1898), French Symbolist painter
Jesus comes from the Greek name “Iesous/IHSOUS” and Latin “Iesus.” “Iesous” is adapted from the name of the Greek goddess of healing “Iesos/Iaso,” the daughter of Apollo, the Sun-deity. This goddess was linked to the Egyptian “Isis” who had a son named “Isu.” During the era of Roman Emperors, there were numerous worshippers of “Isis.” Many converted to Constantine’s religion that mixed paganism with the Messianic faith that eventually became the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church continues to use the sunburst emblem known as the “Eucharist” which to this day contains the Greek letters “IHS” for “IHSOUS.” Further research reveals that the name “Jesus” is also linked to the Greek Sun-god “Zeus” who was the Greek interpretation of the Egyptian Sun-god “Amen-Rah.”
Now, I know for a fact the name of Jesus Christ is a THREAT to the dark side of the supernatural so I don’t know quite what to make of this but it is interesting!
Notice this site is Apollo centered but the cults are all GREEK!

Dream of apollo rising and the vatican secret of 666. The sun god is apollo / sata
APOLLYON, or, as it is literally in the margin of the AV of Revelation 9:11, “a destoyer,” is the rendering of the Hebrew word Abaddon, “the angel of the bottomless pit.”
[And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.–Rev 9:11]
The Hebrew term is really abstract, and signifies “destruction,” in which sense it occurs in Job 26:6; 28:22; Proverbs 15:11; and other passages.
[Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.–Job 26:6
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.–Job 28:22
Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?–Prov 15:11]
The angel Apollyon is further described as the king of the locusts which rose from the smoke of the bottomless pit at the sounding of the fifth trumpet. From the occurrence of the word in Psalm 88:11, the Rabbins have made Abaddon the nethermost of the two regions into which they divided the under world.
[Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?–Psalm 88:11
Hell has seven divisions, one beneath the other. They are called Sheol, Abaddon, Beer Shahat, Tit ha-Yawen, Sha’are Mawet, Sha’are Zalmawet, and Gehenna.– The Legends of the Jews, Louis Ginzberg]
But that in Revelation 9:11 Abaddon is the angel, and not the abyss, is perfectly evident in the Greek. There is no authority for connecting it with the destroyer alluded to in 1 Corinthians 10:10; and the explanation, quoted by Bengel, that the name is given in Hebrew and Greek, to show that the locusts would be destructive alike to Jew and Gentile, is far-fetched and unnecessary.
[Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.–1 Corinthians 10:10]
The etymology of Asmodeus, the king of the demons in Jewish mythology, seems to point to a connection with Apollyon, in his character as “the destroyer,” or the destroying angel.
(Dr. William Smith’s Dictionary of the Bible, 1872)
APOLLYON. The Greek name, meaning “Destroyer,” given in Revelation 9:11 for “the angel of the bottomless pit” (in Hebrew called Abaddon), also identified as the king of the demonic “locusts” described in Revelation 9:3-10…In one manuscript, instead of Apollyon the text reads “Apollo,” the Greek god of death and pestilence as well as of the sun, music, poetry, crops and herds, and medicine. Apollyon is no doubt the correct reading. But the name Apollo (Gk Apollon) was often linked in ancient Greek writings with the verb apollymi or apollyo, “destroy.” From this time of Grotius, “Apollyon” has often been taken here to be a play on the name Apollo. The locust was an emblem of this god, who poisoned his victims, and the name “Apollyon” may be used allusively in Revelation to attack the pagan god and so indirectly the Roman emperor Domitian, who liked to be regarded as Apollo incarnate.
(Anchor Bible Dictionary)
APOLLO, one of the most important and many-sided of the ancient Greek divinities. Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of Artemis [Diana]; he was born on Delos, where Leto had fled, persecuted by the jealousy of Hera…
Apollo’s origins (perhaps Oriental) are quite uncertain; his name yields no convincing Greek etymology, although he became the most thoroughly Greek of all gods…A remarkable feature of his cult was his characteristic, though not only, way of giving oracles, especially at Delphi, to possess the priestess and speak through her mouth in a way reminiscent of Siberian shamanism.
His oracles, especially the Delphic, were consulted on all manner of subjects, and good advice was often given, especially on such matters as colonization, by the obviously well-informed clergy, who “edited” the utterances of the priestess…
Someone in the fifth century BC started a wholly ungrounded theory that Apollo was identical with the sun. This became popular in later times and lingers in poetical expressions such as “Phoebus ‘gins arise,” meaning that the sun rises; Phoebus (“bright, pure”) is one of Apollo’s titles. It also led to his identification with real sun gods.
There were numerous representations of the god in Greek art, from the archaic statues of the sixth century BC to those of the later period in which he appears as the ideal of youthful manliness and beauty. His worship was taken over by the Romans, who dedicated a temple to him in 430 BC and instituted gamees in his honour (the ludi Apollinares) in 212 BC. He became one of the chief Roman gods in the age of Augustus, who erected a temple to him on the Palatine…
APOLLO (Gr. Apollon), a Greek god, the son of Zeus, the father of the gods, and Leto, daughter of the Titan Coeus, and the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the moon. The twins were born on the island of Delos, whither their mother had fled to escape the jealous anger of Zeus’ wife, Hera. Apollos is one of the most versatile of the Olympian gods. As the god of youth, manly beauty, music, and song, he represents the Greek mind at its best. He was the god of prophecy, with his oracle at Delphi, the protector of flocks and herds, the helper and averter of evil, and also the god of righteous punishment. To his oracles people turned in sickness, and he is represented as the father of Aesculapius, the god of healing. He delighted in the foundation of cities, and as the spiritual leader of colonists he was invoked as Delphinius; as Euryalus, he was god of the broad seas, and of the embarker and disembarker; as Agyleus he was god of the streets and roads; and as Phoebus he was god of the sun. Although the Greek poet Homer represents Apollo and Helios, the sun, as distinct divinities, Apollos’ identification as the sun-god is universal among later writers…The attributes of Apollo are the bow and quiver, the cithara and plectrum, the snake, raven, shepherd’s crook, tripod, and laurel. In art Apollo is represented more frequently than any other ancient deity…
(Universal Standard Encyclopedia)
APOLLO BELVEDERE, a famous marble statue in the part of the Vatican museum called Belvedere…Montorsoli, a pupil of Michelangelo, restored the hands but did so wrongly, for the right hand was not empty but held a laurel branch, and the left hand held a bow, as testified by the quiver on the back of the figure. The statue was thus intended to depict the two aspects of Apollo, the god who punishes wrong-doers and purifies repentant sinners…
APOLLO BELVEDERE, …It is regarded as one of the most nearly perfect representations of the human figure.
(Universal Standard Encyclopedia)
BELVEDERE, a court, gallery, or detached structure, usually located to command a view (Ital. bel, “beautiful” and vedere, “to see”). The best known Belvedere is the court of that name in the Vatican Palace, and the gallery surrounding it, built in 1484-1492 by pope Innocent VIII. In this gallery are some of the finest masterpieces of Classical antiquity, including the famous statue of Apollo Belvedere, the Laocoon [a Trojan priest who warned his countrymen against the wooden horse left by the Greeks–according to Pliny the sculpture stood in the palace of Titus in Rome], and a torso of Hercules.
The slime with which the earth was covered by the waters of the flood produced an excessive fertility, which called forth every variety of production, both bad and good. Among the rest, Python, an enormous serpent, crept forth, the terror of the people…The famous statue of Apollo called the Belvedere represents the god after this victory over the serpent Python.
Aesculapius, the son of Apollo, was endowed by his father with such skill in the healing art that he even restored the dead to life.
Orpheus was the son of Apollo and the Muse Calliope. He was presented by his father with a lyre and taught to play upon it, which he did to such perfection that nothing could withstand the charm of his music.
PHEOBUS APOLLO…the lord of the silver bow, the Archer-god, far-shooting… He is the God of Light, in whom is no darkness at all, and so he is the God of Truth. No false word ever falls from his lips.
O Phoebus, from your throne of truth,
From your dwelling-place at the heart of the world,
You speak to men.
By Zeus’s decree no lie comes there,
No shadow to darken the word of truth.
Zeus sealed by an everlasting right
Apollo’s honour, that all may trust
With unshaken faith when he speaks.
Delphi under towering Parnassus, where Apollo’s oracle was, plays an important part in mythology. Castalia was its sacred spring; Cephissus its river. It was held to be the center of the world, so many pilgrims came to it, from foreign countries as well as Greece. No other shrine rivaled it.
Apollo at Delphi was a purely beneficent power, a direct link between gods and men, guiding men to know the divine will, showing them how to make peace with the gods; the purifier, too, able to cleanse even those stained with the blood of their kindred.
(Mythology, Edith Hamilton)
Terrors had always made excellent business for Apollo, and there were never worse terrors than the plagues and earthquakes in the Antonine and Severan age. At Didyma, Apollo’s cult was connected by its very origins to the bahishment of plague: in the 250s, Apollo still recalled how he had “shamed” the threads of the Fates and kept off the epidemic….we know about Apollo’s remedies in a fascinating selection of oracles…They carry no date, but the main four probabably belong in the great epidemic of the 160s when Roman troops were returning from the East and brought home a disease whose effects read horribly like smallpox…
Three cities have left us pieces of Clarian Apollo’s oracles on plague: Pergamum, Callipolis (near modern Gallipoli) and humble little Caesarea Trochetta, a small town in Lydia…The god pitched his style very high and lamented the disaster (crying “Woe! Woe! to each city)…None of these texts explained the plague; they only prescribed remedies… Only part of the god’s remedy survives, but it runs true to his old-fashioned manner. The “divine law,” he said, required his clients to draw pure water from seven fountains, which they had fumigated carefully. They must then sprinkle their houses with these “nymphs who have become kindly” and must set up an image of Apollo the archer, bow in hand, in the middle of their plain. There, presumably, he would “shoot away” the invading enemy, the plague itself.
Callipolis was ordered to set up a similar statue, “the warder-off of plague,” and was also told to offer blood from sacrificial animals to the “gods below the earth” and to burn all the animals’ meat with spices. The pyre of this holocaust was to be sprinkled with “shining wine and grey sea water”: the victims, a goat, and a sheep, must be black…
Of the three texts, the finest is Pergamum’s, which moves in stately hexameters and spends the first nine lines on flattery of the citizens’ ancestry, their closeness to the gods and their especial honour from Zeus himself. On Pergamum’s steep hill, said Apollo, the infant Zeus had been placed just after childbirth: his statement refuted a host of competing cities which claimed that they, not Pergamum, had received the newly born god. It was no wonder that the people and council of Pergamum decreed that the reply should be inscribed on pillars and displayed “on the agora and the temples.” It also offered advice. Apollo wished to please his son, Asclepius, who resided so conspicuously in the city…he told [them] to sing a hymn to a particular god while their fellow citizens feasted and sacrificed in support…

NEPHILIM AT FATIMA
I’ve been saying for some time that the whole Fatima event was not as the Roman Catholic Church would have you believe it to be. What we have here is a facade. To me, it reminds me of the fact that so many people will be deceived when these entities do make themselves known…and they will.
Rand is a government ‘think-tank’ society. It published a report (in 1968)which was ‘free’ to view at one time but now…is not. But, I have a link…
Before I place those here I want to acknowledge what this report said about Fatima!
“What was reported? Luminous discs, shields, globes and elongated objects in the sky, sometimes alone, sometimes in large numbers. Occasional descriptions of interactions with the observers are also mentioned, including landings, and seeing and communicating with occupants. The latter events especially were almost always interpreted in a religious context. A recent example is the repreated appearance of a typical UFO phenomenology at Fatima, Portugal on six successive months in 1917. The October 13 phenomenon was the best reported and was witnessed by a crowd of about 70,000 persons, including a number of scientists, reporters, atheists, and agnostics, as well as faithful Catholics.One of the scientifically curious was Dr. A. Garett of the University of Coimbra. Rain, which had been falling that day, ceased and the crowd looked up to see the “sun” now visible through the heavy clouds, Professor Garett wrote, “…I turned toward this (sun) which was attracting all eyes and I could see it like a disk with a clear cut edge, with a vivid rim, luminous and shining, but without hurting one. The comparison I have heard at Fatima with a disk of dull silver, does not seem to me exact. It was a clearer, more vivid, richer color and with shifting tints like the luster of a pearl. It was not at all like the moon on a clear transparent night, for one saw and felt it like a living star. Nor was it spherical like the moon, nor did it have the same quality of lighter and less light. It looked like a burnished wheel cut out of mother-of-pearl. Nor could it be confused with the sun seen through a fog–there was no fog…This disc spun dizzily round. It was not the twinkling of a star: it whirled round upon itself with mad rapidity…The sun, preserving the celerity of its rotation, detached itself from the firmament and advanced, blood-red, towards the earth, threatening to crush is with the weight of its vast and fiery mass. These moments made a terrifying impression.”

When they [men] die hearts that were void of mercy pay the due penalty, and of this world’s sins a judge below the earth holds trial, and of dread necessity declares the word of doom…Pindar
In lieu of Satan, the Hell scene in Michelangelo’s Last Judgement features Charon and Minos, two key figures in Dante’s Inferno. Was this to suggest the hypothesis that Minos and Charon were intended to symbolize the psychological experience of damnation, and more importantly the dynamic interconnections of free will?
Present in symbolic illusion: a serpent entwined about the figure of Minos, Hell’s judge…
In Greek mythology, Minos is the king of Crete, son of Zeus. After his death he became judge of the dead of the underworld.
Minos is the Cretan word for “king”.
According to La Marle’s reading of Linear A, which have been heavily criticized as arbitrary we should read mwi-nu ro-ja (Minos the king) on a Linear A tablet. The royal title ro-ja is read on several documents, including on stone libation tables from the sanctuaries, where it follows the name of the main god, Asirai (the equivalent of Sanskrit Asura, and of Avestan Ahura).
Some scholars see a connection between Minos and the names of other ancient founder-kings, such as Menes of Egypt, Mannus of Germany, and Manu of India, and even with Meon of Phrygia and Lydia (after him named Maeonia), Mizraim of Egypt in the Book of Genesis and the Canaanite deity Baal Meon.
In Michelangelo’s famous fresco, The Last Judgment (located in the Sistine Chapel), Minos appears as judge of the underworld, surrounded by a crowd of devils. With his tail coiled around him, Minos judges the damned as they are brought down to hell.
The myth begins with King Minos of Crete ascending to the throne over his brothers. Hoping to receive the support of the gods, Minos prayed to Poseidon for a sign. The god sent him a white bull, which was to be sacrificed as a symbol of respect for the Olympians. When Minos refused, killing a regular bull instead, Poseidon was angered.
NOTE: Roja is interesting in that the giants of the Bible were known to have red hair! And the Olympians from Atlantis are not just a myth either!!
In Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy story Inferno, Minos is depicted with having a snake-like tail. He sits at the entrance to the second circle in the Inferno, which is the beginning of Hell proper.
So Minos was born by the mating of a royal woman and a supernatural bull…..sounds familiar? RIGHT!
Also interesting to note is the Minotaur factor.
Minotaur (Minotauros, “the bull of Minos”).
Labyrinth is a word of pre-Greek (Minoan) origin, which the Greeks used for the palace of Knossos in Crete, and it is derived from the Lydian word labrys (“double-edged axe”). This was a symbol of royal power, which suggests that the labyrinth was originally the royal Minoan palace in Crete and meant “palace of the double-axe” (the suffix -nth as in Korinth). This designation cannot be limited to the palace of Knossos, because the same symbols were discovered in other palaces of Crete.
You will find these strange symbols everywhere, including churches. Also, let’s not forget the Freemason connections.
PASIPHAE was an immortal daughter of the sun-god Helios. Like her two siblings, Aeetes and Kirke, she possessed the powers of witchcraft (pharmakeia). She is the Queen of the city of Atlantis, and ruled along side her husband, King Minos. Both her taurine lover and her Minotaur son, who was also named Asterios (the starry one), were associated with the constellation Taurus.
How Pharmakeia Works: Detuning for a biological realignment towards genetic reassignment. The ultimate goal of the fallen angels’ “knowledge download” and practice has not changed! Satan’s pharmakeia strategy is to facilitate the bringing forth of offspring. The fallen Semjaza taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, which is pharmakeia. The iron/sons-of-god are leveraging Satan’s strategies, including pharmakeia, to mingle themselves with the clay/seed-of-men.
Minos is portrayed by Dante as a giant beast who stands at the Second Circle of Hell, deciding where the souls of the sinners shall be sent for torment. Upon hearing a given sinner’s confession, Minos curls his tail around himself a specific number of times to represent the circle of Hell to which the soul should be consigned.
Do the elite really believe they are in control of the souls on this earth? Yes. Do they want to bring Hell on earth, literally? Yes.
Another of the characters of Dante’s plot is:
Count Ugolino – A traitor condemned to the Second Ring of the Ninth Circle of Hell. Ugolino gnaws on the head of another damned traitor, Archbishop Ruggieri.
Isn’t it interesting that the Ninth Circle Satanic Cult is part of the elite’s pedophile ring? And who’s supposedly head of this ring? The Roman Catholic hierarchy. What irony.
Fra Alberigo and Branca d’Oria – Sinners condemned to the Third Ring of the Ninth Circle of Hell. Fra Alberigo and Branca d’Oria are unlike the other sinners Dante encounters: their crimes were deemed to be so great that devils snatched their souls from their living bodies; thus, their souls reside in Hell while their bodies live on, now guided and possessed by demons.
I firmly believe these supposed ‘men of GOD’ are actually possessed! Possessed by demonic entities which will guide them straight to Hell.
MINOS – Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search – is an experiment at Fermilab designed to study the phenomena known as neutrino oscillations. The experiment uses a beam of neutrino particles produced by the NuMI beamline facility – Neutrinos at the Main Injector. The beam of neutrinos is sent through the two MINOS detectors, one at Fermilab and one in the Soudan Mine in northern Minnesota. The two detectors are about 735-km apart, making what is called a “long-baseline” neutrino experiment.
The MINOS Experiment and NuMI Beamline
These elite know exactly what their doing, and why!
In this video of BPEarthWatch, you will see here is not just CERN to worry about! NO!! Instead we have a minature version of CERN, called Minos. It’s located near Chicago, in the United States of America. That’s right, folks! We’re in big trouble. We have been but few realize it.
CERN/Beam 2 Spirals/Dumped [link]
What I find interesting in this equation is that people have been reporting nightmares, strange dreams…headaches and such during the experiments located near the placement of MINOS. Not long ago people were also reporting the same thing around CERN, and also time variations. Meaning…time seem to be OFF!
CERN officially marked the ‘Year of Light,’ in Feb 2015!
Did you know December 20th was the eve of the equinox, and solstice? So, there we have it! The Year of Lucifer!!
The sought after “God particle,” as referred to by CERN’s physicists, holds the secrets of mass and therefore also of time (as E=MC2 and C, as the speed of light, represents units of distance over time). This is something that may open a dimensional portal that relates to Apollyon and the key to the abyss of Revelation 9. Such an event may act as a cooperative agency facilitating the procreative scheme with pharmakeia creating a crucial intersection, one removing the barrier to the transformation for an individual “daughter of men” and the other removing the barrier for the demonic antichrist sons of god to regain entrance into this realm from their present state of imprisonment. With these barriers removed, the prepared hosts would be filled like canning jars at harvest time.
The authorities are CERN are performing their ritualistic experiments in the underworld and they realize this has unlimited power to turn against the people of earth. This power has not only caused increased amount of volcanic/earthquake activities but some even claim it’s connected to the increase of UFO activity. Well, of course it has! The demonic activity is increasing and so are the level of entities. The portals/dimensions are going to unleash terrors of Biblical proportions and those are spoken of in Revelation.
At the beginning of this article, I referenced the Last Judgment scene of Michelangelo…this is but a metaphorical picture…but we need to realize that Satan is only the king of earth, and only for a short time longer. He will not be the ultimate judge buy will in fact be judged for his enormous iniquities. Let’s not forget that those who align themselves with him will be too.

Judaism is not what Israel believed under the Old Covenant. Judaism is pure Babylonian religion brought back by the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and half of Levi after the 70 year captivity of Nebuchadnezzar.
Jewish rabbi openly admits to Satan worship, abortion in food, oppression and world domination
Jews who practice Judaism are the synagogue of Satan.
This work given is in full acknowledgement of GOD and directed by Holy Spirit. Any and all use of the facts of the dark side are not an avenue meant to give any credit to them. In fact, all work is directly attributed to GODs Plan and to give HIM all the glory. Amen
Everything GOD does is twisted by Satan and his ugly deeds. EVERYTHING!
Did you know even the Passover of the last days will be duplicated by Satan, only it will be allowed by GOD. Nothing happens without GOD’s knowledge and acceptance. You see, the Passover was when the blood was wiped across the people’s doors (mantle) and this allowed for the passing over of the Mighty Angel of GOD to save the children of GOD from death. From this comes the name, “Passover”.
But, in the last days another Mighty Angel of GOD (or the same one, who knows!) will come and will take the lives of the people without the Mark of GOD on their foreheads. You see, this will be the purpose of GOD, but Satan will be allowed to torture these who are left that have the Mark of the Beast.
Did you notice the ‘mantle’ in this description? It’s a covering of sorts. Right?
It is said that Adam and Eve both wore mantles. Many photos intimately join human nature with the divine Person of Jesus Christ but revealing Him garbed in a blue mantle over red garments (the red representing human nature), when not portrayed in the white of glory.
Other photos suggest the magnificent characters of the figures of Adam and Eve both wearing mantles over blue inner garments. Blue being symbolic of the divine life.
These mantles were extending GOD’S authority in the earth.
Satan seduced, beguiled and deceived Eve, and succeeded in stealing Adam and Eve’s glory mantle.
For seven years…year after year, enemies came against Israel. GOD eventually called Gideon, anointed him and clothed him with a mantle of authority to break the yolk. The demonic yolk!
When he went into battle, he did not battle alone-he was yolked with GOD and HIS power! He obeyed GOD. To flow in GOD’S anointing and to be clothed with a mantle of authority, we must do the same.
Satan had a mantle too!
Yes, Satan has a “covering” of beauty and wisdom. He also had a covering of precious stones. Satan had a mantle of beautiful gemstones. But, though he was mantled with beauty and wisdom it was not GOD’s mantle of glory. The glory mantle is a covering of GOD-likeness. And with everything GOD created Satan twists it for his agenda and purposes.
Adam and Eve wore a mantle. This mantle was their coats of skin which GOD had made for them. These were handed down from them to their children when they passed. Eventually they came into the hands of Nimrod!
“The importance of Nimrod in any study of the occult cannot be over-emphasized. Because of the powers given him by the clothing of Adam and Eve, Nimrod became the first man to rule the whole world. He indulged that power by launching excesses and horrors which have never been equaled. Ever since the time of Nimrod, Babylon has been the symbol of depravity and lust. Nimrod also introduced the practice of genocide to the world. His grandfather, Ham, having consorted with other races, and brought children of mixed race into the world, was persuaded by his consort, the evil Naamah, to practice ritual murder and cannibalism. She informed Ham that by killing and eating fair-skinned people, his descendants could regain their superior qualities. Throughout the ensuing centuries, the fair-skinned descendants of Shem, Noah’s oldest son, have ritually been slaughtered by the darker descendants of Ham and Nimrod, in the world’s most persistent campaign of racial and religious persecution.
Not only did Nimrod kill and eat the fair-skinned descendants of Shem, in his fury and hatred he often burned them alive. The type of human sacrifice involving the eating of the slaughtered human victims derived its name from the combined names of his uncle, Canaan, and the demon god Baal, the two names being combined to form the word “cannibal.” Nimrod was also known in ancient history by the names of Marduk, Bel, and Merodach. Because of his importance in its history, Babylon was known as the Land of Nimrod. Nimrod is also cited in the most ancient Masonic constitutions as the founder of Freemasonry.”
Eustace Mullins, Curse of Canaan
“Nimrod is the prototype of rebellion against the Almighty (Ḥag. 13a), his name being interpreted as “he who made all the people rebel against God” (Pes. 94b). As the first hunter, he was the first to eat meat and to make war on other peoples (Mid. Ag. to Gen. 10:8), and he eventually became a king (PdRE 24). His physical prowess came from his coats of skin, which God had made for Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:21) and which Noah had preserved in the Ark. When the animals saw Nimrod wearing these coats, they knelt before him. He became the first man to rule the whole world and he appointed Terah, Abraham’s father, his minister (PdRE 24). Elated by his glory, he became an idolator (Sefer ha-Yashar, Noah 9a, 1870). He built the Tower of Babel (which is called by the rabbis, “the house of Nimrod”) for idol worship (Av. Zar. 53b) and he had the whole world pay divine homage to him (Mid. Hag to Gen. 11:28). When informed of Abraham’s birth, Nimrod ordered all male children to be killed (Ma’aseh Avraham, in: A. Jellinek, Beit ha-Midrash, 2 (19382, 118f.) and he later had Abraham cast into a fiery furnace because he refused to worship fire (Gen. R. 38:13).
Nimrod (identified with *Amraphel ) became a vassal of his rebellious general Chedorlaomer, and was later defeated by Abraham (see Gen. 14; Sefer ha-Yashar , loc. cit.). He was slain by Esau who was jealous of his success as a hunter and who coveted his magic garments (PdRE 24). In messianic times Nimrod will testify before the whole world that Abraham never worshiped idols (Av. Zar. 3a).”
We must understand how the esoteric works. First is the way of the world…then The Way of GOD. Two paths…two choices. And consequently we have the natural and supernatural. GOD created everything with HIS Word…and by this I mean voice. But, suffice it to say that the supernatural and paranormal have been with us since the beginning.
In religious terms we have four competing worldviews:
There is no paranormal.
1. Only the natural exists
The supernatural would be the spiritual world that is not directly detected by our five senses.
The paranormal includes the topics such as telepathy, clairoyoance, telekensis, UFO’s, levitation, poltergeists, etc…
Although these issues deal with the reality of this world, the New Age twists them into something in the occult view.
A mantle, robe or cloak.
The mantle served the practical purpose of keeping people warm and protecting them from the elements. It also served a symbolic purpose, in the case of the prophets, showing they were wrapped in God’s authority. Like all imagery in the Old Testament, the mantle presents a visible representation of a New Testament principle. The mantle can be seen as a symbol of the anointing of the Holy Spirit whom God so graciously gives to all Christians, the people of His choosing (1 Thessalonians 1:5–6; 1 Peter 2:9).
In modern times, a mantle is a type of clothing generally worn by bishops, nuns and monks in certain Christian churches. In Biblical terms, it was a metaphorical passing of responsibility…and is much the same way now.
But, we must understand that Satan does indeed twist everything for his purpose and agenda. So, I believe we have to include these subjects as well.
In this description, we see:
Hebrews me’il, frequently applied to the “robe of the ephod” (Exodus 28:4, 31; Leviticus 8:7), which was a splendid under tunic wholly of blue, reaching to below the knees.
BABYLONISH MANTLE-The Vulgate (Jerome’s Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) calls it a “scarlet pallium,” and some of the rabbinical traditions make it a purple robe.
Freemasonry considers blue to be very indicative what is ‘holy’ to them:
The Talmud says that Techelet was very expensive. When it was found that unscrupulous dye dealers had been selling a counterfeit blue dye; a chemical test was developed by the religious scholars to determine whether or not the blue dye was genuine Techelet.
From the wording of the Tosefta quoted above, it seems that the blue dye had to be made from the Chilazon. Some believe that this was part of the oral tradition given to Moses on Mount Sinai when the Lord appeared to Moses in a cloud of azure (blue) and gold.
The Chilazon (also called hillazon, in Hebrew) is the fish-like animal from which the ancient Israelites obtained the tekhelet dye. The four primary criteria for the Chilazon come from the Talmud (tractate Menachot 44a) which says:
The color of its body is like the sea.
Its form is like a fish.
It raises to the surface once in 70 years, its “blood” is used for techelet, (sic: therefore:)
It is expensive.
Murex Trunculus Snail
Tyre, Lebanon: The Mediterranean coast was the center of the dyeing industry in the ancient world. “Tyrian Purple” came from the port of Tyre in Phoenicia in what is now known as southern Lebanon. It’s flourishing maritime trade, and its dye and glass industries made Tyre very powerful and wealthy. (See Isaiah. 23:8; and Zechariah 9:3). The Phoenicians were said to be the descendants of the Atlanteans and this is where they obtained this knowledge.
Masonic Blue…and Techelet
Are Masonic blue and Techelet the same color?
The murex trunculus, the sea snail found on the Mediterranean coast, is currently believed by Jewish scholars to be the source of this coveted and long lost techelet dye.
Techelet is also the color of the Israeli national flag.
The “BLUE” dragon is in Orion…VERY interesting indeed!

“E Pluribus Caeruleus — Out of many That Which is BLUE
Of the Ascended Masters, one of the BLUE deities is Count of St. Germain. You will find many texts within the Mason Lodges about St. Germain!
“THE TEN” put in blue garments of great beauty. They sat below the glow of the fire and extinguished all other fires around the sanctuary. The same rituals were important also to the Indo-Germanic Fire Cult. In many German country districts the custom long remained to make the new holy fire by “rubbing” two pieces of wood. In among Teutons, they called it “hnot-fiur”, which derives from “niuwan, hniotan” which meant rubbing in ancient Indo-Germanic Fire Cults. In modern rituals of “rubbing” only twins were allowed to carry out the procedure, also a tradition in Atlantis as well. Poseidon was said to have begotten 5 pairs of twins with Cleito and said to have divided his kingdom among the 10 twins. According to Atlantis report, the TEN are direct descendants of these twins. On the stone of Kivik, the holy ritual of the new kindling is accompanied by lute music also practiced in Atlantis.
The BLUE MANTLE of the KINGS- In the highest festival of the Atlanteans the blue coat, or mantle, is mentioned. It is worn by each of the TEN kings and when not worn were kept in the temple beside the golden table of laws.
A mantle, robe or cloak. This reminds me that witchcraft has duplicated this item of clothing. And the so-called aliens/demons are cloaking themselves daily to protect their identity. Then, we must give credit to the US government for their demons-given technology of cloaking too. Evil works, no doubt. GOD works in the Light, and Satan in the dark.
I believe the Bible is specific in that it describes Nimrod as a “Mighty One”, and the Atlantis fallen angels are also referred to as the same.
“In many examples of Greek art, Poseidon is shown as wearing precisely the kind of blue mantle in which the kings of Atlantis are described as have been attired at the six-yearly assize.”
The Occult Sciences in Atlantis by Lewis Spence Pg 23
The BLUE MANTLE of the KINGS- In the highest festival of the Atlantean’s the blue coat, or mantle, is mentioned. It is worn by each of the TEN kings and when not worn were kept in the temple beside the golden table of laws. It is a strange coincidence that such a blue mantle belonging to the 3rd century AD was found during excavations on the Thorsberger Moor in Schleswig-Holstein, confirmed that the “technical miracle” of the mantle ties not so much into the 7 foot length but more in the manufacture; two different kinds of weaving were used, as was used during the Bronze Age, 3500 years before. On the picture stones of Kivik, the two men wore long coats as reported by the Atlantean kings. The Holy Vessel stood in the center of “THE TEN” during the festivities and bull’s blood flowed down the pillars into it ladled out into cups, the holy drink was meant to connect “THE TEN” with their god and with each other.
As Moses held his and Aaron’s (High Priest) rod up and the Red Sea divided, Elijah rolled his garment (mantle) up like a rod and struck the Jordan River and it divided to the right and to the left so Elijah and Elisha could cross over on dry (solid ground)– a firm foundation. Elijah’s cloak (garment) is his prayer shawl which is considered a holy garment. This prayer shawl represents righteousness, anointing and authority. Mantles are to be worn with humility and servant hood.
These “Atlanteans” are actually the Fallen Angels, or the Nephilim. Of course, they would duplicate GOD’s creations and twist it for their evils works.
Are you beginning to see connections to mantles? Seems there are miraculous events connected to them and GOD’s people, but again we have Satan twisting his hand into it. But, ultimately GOD does control Satan.
Magic is the opposite of GOD’s miracles. We need to realize this. The occult thrives on this magic (k). It’s utilized for power and used against GOD’s people. Once we recognize this and accept that it can be defeated, the fear will subside. GOD gives us an ARMOR. We need to learn how to use it against the dark side of the supernatural.
Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary
9. (v. t.) To cover or envelop, as with a mantle; to cloak; to hide; to disguise.
UFO’s are demons in disguise. Demons sent by Satan to deceive and take away our faith in GOD.
