Bible Believers' Newsletter 299
"We focus on the present Truth – what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it's great to gather together for fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
Paul taught "Before the day of Christ can come there must first be an apostasy from the Word, and the revelation of the man of sin, the son of perdition . . . faith in God's Word restrains his public revelation ahead of time. His work is already going on, but he will not come himself until the restraining power of the Holy Spirit is taken out of the way in the translation of Christ's end-time Bride. Then will that wicked one be revealed to the world, whom the Lord will consume with the Spirit of His mouth (Revelation 19:15), and destroy with the supernatural manifestation of the miraculous in His 'parousia' Coming [to Israel] (Revelation 11:3-13). "Even the beast, whose 'parousia' coming is after the working of Satan with great power and signs and lying wonders, and with unlimited seduction to unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved" (II Thessalonians 2:1-10).
The Third Seal with a glimpse at the Fifth and Sixth Vials confirms that the office of the man of sin, the son of perdition, is revealed to the end-time Bride as that of the pope of Rome once he is incarnate of Satan. But that he will not be recognized as such by the world until after the Holy Spirit has departed from this earth in our translation and Satan is cast down and incarnate in the false prophet.
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith, and whosoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Fatima to become Interfaith Shrine
November 1, 2003 Delegates attending the Vatican and United Nations (UN) inspired annual interfaith congress 'The Future of God,' held during October in Fatima, heard how the Shrine is to be developed into a centre where all the religions of the world will gather to pay homage to their various gods. The Congress was held in the Paul VI Pastoral Centre and presided over by Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon Jose de Cruz Policarpo.
The Shrine's rector, Monsignor Luciano Guerra, told the Congress that Fatima "will change for the better." Addressing Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, Orthodox, Buddhist and African Pagan representatives he stated: "The future of Fatima, or the adoration of God and His mother at this holy Shrine, must pass through the creation of a shrine where different religions can mingle. The inter-religious dialogue in Portugal, and in the Catholic Church, is still in an embryonic phase, but the Shrine of Fatima is not indifferent to this fact and is already open to being a universalistic place of vocation."
Hindu representative Ansshok Ansraj described how already in the Far East millions of Hindus are getting "positive vibrations" from visiting Marian shrines without endangering their faith.
Monsignor Guerra pointed out that the very fact that Fatima is the name of a Muslim and Mohammed's daughter is indicative that the Shrine must be open to the co-existence of various faiths and beliefs. According to the Monsignor: "Therefore we must assume that it was the will of the Blessed Virgin Mary that this comes about this way." Traditional Catholics opposed to the Congress were described by the Monsignor as "old fashioned, narrow minded, fanatic extremists and provocateurs."
For the first time in the 86-year history of Fatima all of the Pagan and Christian delegates were invited to participate in the Ecumenical celebrations. One of the principle speakers, the Jesuit theologian Father Jacques Dupuis, was insistent that the religions of the world must unite. "The religion of the future will be a general converging of religions in a universal Christ that will satisfy all", he said.
The Belgium born theologian argued: "The other religious traditions in the world are part of God's plan for humanity and the Holy Spirit is operating and present in Buddhist, Hindu and other sacred writings of Christian and non-Christian faiths as well." In an impassioned plea he said: "The universality of God's kingdom permits this, and this is nothing more than a diversified form of sharing in the same mystery of salvation. In the end it is hoped that the Christian will become a better Christian and each Hindu a better Hindu."
An official statement put out by the Congress called for a non-proselytizing approach by all religions. "No one religion can irradiate another," it said "or strengthen itself by downplaying others and an open dialogue is the way to building bridges and tearing down walls of centuries of hate. What is needed is that each religion be true to its faith integrally and treat each religion on the same footing of equality with no inferior or superiority complexes." It emphasized that the secret to peace amongst all religions is admitting that contradictions exist between creeds but to concentrate on what unites them as opposed to what separates them.
Delegates agreed that religious shrines, including Fatima, should be revamped every 25 years to reflect modern day trends and beliefs. The Shrine of Fatima is about to undergo a complete reconstruction with a new stadium-like basilica being erected close by the existing one built in 1921. Full story: the-news.net
Comment: This illustrates Satan's 'parousia' coming now to incarnate the man of sin (or unbelief) "with great power and signs and lying wonders, (uniting all religions), and with unlimited seduction to unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth[God's unchanging Word (John 17:17)], that they might be saved." God is a Separator (Amos 3:3; II Corinthians 6:14-18; Revelation 18:4).
Scripture is being fulfilled in our sight, if only we have eyes to see. Revelation 13:13-14, "America, the image to the Roman beast does great wonders, like making atomic fire come down from heaven on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, And deceives them that dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he is empowered to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they [the masses through the mob rule of sham democracy being forced by the 'hidden hand' that controls all democracies] should make an image to Rome, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had authority to give life to the image of the beast, [a union of Protestants] that the image of the beast should demand and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed" (William Branham, The Mark of the Beast, 22:160).
Jewish Jesuit priest, the late Malachi Martin said, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. When he went to churches all over the world, member churches of the Catholic Church in all the countries, he was bolstering the reputation of the papacy and he was speaking Catholic dogma, Catholic belief, Catholic morals. But in reality he was reaching out to everybody. He wanted to make friends with everybody" (Windswept House).
Pope John Paul II was laying the groundwork to form an image to the Roman beast.
Bush's Mid-East Quagmire and Apocalypse Future?
November 12, 2003 Gordon Thomas' October 27th exclusive for the American Free Press [states]: that George Bush's neo-conservative regime has secretly flown 100 Harpoon cruise missiles tipped with nuclear warheads to the joint American-UK military base stationed on the remote Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia. Thomas informs us that it is now known where 72 of these Harpoons have been subsequently assignedto three Israeli Dolphin-class submarines (24 apiece) that have subsequently left Diego for the Gulf of Oman. The purpose? To target Iranian nuclear facilities well within the range of the Dolphins and their collective nuclear-tipped payload supplied by the United States. Most ominously, these instruments of mass death and destruction are under the command-and-launch decision making authority of one Ariel Sharon . . . The Thomas story has subsequently been confirmed by a senior aide to Bush National Security Advisor Condolezza Rice for both the Los Angeles Times and London's Guardian newspaper. . .

Comment: This may explain why America is boosting its military strength in Qatar and tie-in with speculation we reported last week on possible US aggression against Syria. Or is the US upping the ante following Russia's deployment of Sunburn deadly missiles to the Middle East as reported in Newsletter 297?
"Uncle Sam wants you, your sister, and your girl friend or wife." The obligation of every US citizen and every other person residing in the United States, between the ages of 18 and 26 will be to perform a two-year period of national service. On November 6 and 7 the Associated Press reported that "85,000 Army and Marine combat forces . . . 43,000 National Guard and Reserve troops . . . and hundreds of Air Force and Navy Reserve specialists will be dispatched to Iraq next year . . . Additionally, in a measure known in the military as 'stop-loss,' both active and reserve Army soldiers designated for deployment will be prohibited from leaving the service beginning 90 days before they go to 90 days after they return. . .

Russia to deliver Arms to Israel?
November 6, 2003 Making a speech at the meeting of the committee for military and technical cooperation, Putin said he had discussed an opportunity of delivering Russian arms to Israel . . . Russian and Israeli defense companies have been cooperating with each other for several years already. The most known example of such cooperation is the modernization of the Ka-50 helicopter . . . Aside from military and technical cooperation, Russia and Israel are competitors. Israel has recently taken second place on arms deliveries to India . . . Russian Il-76 aircraft are often fitted with Israeli radar equipment. Full story: english.pravda.ru
Iraq: How did we get Here?
As investigations continue within the US Congress as to the nature and quality of intelligence provided to decision makers within the Bush Administration, a few well-placed leaks and news articles are beginning to identify what actually happened. It seems that a small group of Zionists created and operated their own intelligence service within the Pentagon which came to be known as the Office of Special Plans "OSP" run by Douglas Feith, Mr. Shulski and Mr. Luti, under the supervision of Mr. Wolfowitz . . .
According to a July 17, 2003 story in The Guardian by Julian Borger (The Spies who Pushed for War) . . . the OSP . . . had a "parallel ad hoc" sister organization within Sharon's office in Israela separate function from 'Mossad.' It was later learned from sources in the UK that a similar office was operating out of 10 Downing Street. The speculation is that Zionist agents in the US, Israel and the United Kingdom under the direction of Israel, directly and through surrogates, planted false intelligence in official Pentagon channels for use by the Bush Administration as a means to deceive the US Congress and the American people. There is further speculation that the Zionist agents were all too eager to circumvent US law and had no hesitation in providing false information to the US Congress . . . not surprising given some of these very same Zionist agents were convicted in the United States of that very offense in the past. It does not take much to assert that they placed the interests of Israel well above the interests of America. CIA reports resolving that Iraq would become a quagmire fueled by Iraqi resistance to occupation were promptly discarded by the Bush Administration in favor of the ridiculous notion that the US Army would be welcomed as liberators.

Israel: The Alternative
The Middle East peace process is finished. It did not die: it was killed. . . Unless something changes, Israel in half a decade will be neither Jewish nor democratic. . .
It is now tacitly conceded by those in a position to know that America's reasons for going to war in Iraq were not necessarily those advertised at the time. For many in the current US administration, a major strategic consideration was the need to destabilize and then reconfigure the Middle East in a manner thought favorable to Israel. This story continues. We are now making belligerent noises toward Syria because Israeli intelligence has assured us that Iraqi weapons have been moved therea claim for which there is no corroborating evidence from any other source. Syria backs Hezbollah and the Islamic Jihad: sworn foes of Israel, to be sure, but hardly a significant international threat. However, Damascus has hitherto been providing the US with critical data on al-Qaeda. Like Iran, another longstanding target of Israeli wrath whom we are actively alienating, Syria is more use to the United States as a friend than an enemy. Which war are we fighting?

Vatican concludes Conference on Biotech Foods
Vatican City (AP) November 11, 2003 The Vatican concluded a two-day conference on genetically modified organisms Tuesday with a discussion of the moral implications of tinkering with creation by splicing genes to make new plants and animals.
Supporters of the new technologies said they offer great promise to mankind and deserve to be encouraged, while critics said biotech foods will not alleviate world hunger. The two camps clashed at a Vatican-sponsored conference entitled "GMO: Threat or Hope."
The Vatican is expected to make a pronouncement on genetically modified organisms in the future, based on the data gathered during the seminar.
Some participants have questioned whether the Vatican was getting a balanced view, since speakers in the pro-biotech camp dominated the discussions, reflecting the views of its organizer, Cardinal Renato Martino. Full story: sfgate.com
An important Lesson on Historic Facts
Our nation and Western Civilisation generally have taken a wrong turn. This downward cycle of decay is due thanks largely to decisions made in regard to Hitler and the World War that was contrived against him.
That our present plight has continued and shows no signs other than the eclipse of Western Civilisation and the white man in favour of a World Dictatorship, is also due thanks partly to your generation which has never grown up out of the bilge it was taught when you were all told what to think about Hitler and Germany. . .

Alabama oust Justice Moore
Alabama's nine-member Court of the Judiciary removed Roy Moore from his position as chief justice for defiance of a federal judge's order to move his Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of the state courthouse.
With a unanimous vote, the panel concluded Moore violated judicial ethical standards and removed him halfway through his six-year elected term. Full story: worldnetdaily.com
The Third Seal
Revelation 6:5-6; "When Christ opened the Third Seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come. And I saw a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard as it were a Voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see you hurt not the oil and the wine".
This living being had the head of a man and is represented in the New Testament by the Gospel of Luke guarding the way to the throne of God on the South as the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John were typed by the living beings that guarded the Presence on the East, West, and North. In the Old Testament the four divisions of the tribes of Israel camped around the Tabernacle to guard the way to the Presence above the Ark of the Covenant in the holy of holies. The emblems of the four leading tribes of Judah, Ephraim, Reuben and Dan bore the likenesses of a lion, an ox, a man, and an eagle. So we see that all things in the Old Testament were temporary shadows and types of an eternal substance to be fulfilled in the New Testament, and that the heavenly temple seen in visions by God's prophets was a form of diagram for redemption signifying the way back into the Presence of God much like the witness of the starsGod's first Bible.
The most intelligent of all creatures is man. And under the Third Seal God raised up supremely intelligent godly men: great teachers who became the reformers of the Roman Catholic system of worship following the violent bloody excesses of the Dark Ages which were not completely put down until the mid-nineteenth century. The Third Seal covers the Sardis (1520-1750) and Philadelphia Church Ages (1750-1906).
During the Dark Ages under the Second Seal, simony, the sale of bishoprics and even the office of Pope to the highest bidder, had flourished, and the Roman Universal church had devised unscriptural doctrines such as the primacy of the Roman pope, his temporal power, purgatory, his ability to remit sins upon payment, novenas, and indulgences for future, uncommitted sinsa kind of "get out of hell free pass," to the intent that this earthbound "church" might increase her temporal power and wealth.
Revelation 13:1-4, "I saw a wild untamable beast rising out of the sea [or multitudes of people (Daniel 7:3; Revelation 17:15)], having seven heads and ten horns, [this was the Roman Universal church united with the Roman State or Holy Roman Empire (Revelation 17:3, 12, 16)], and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads [the deified emperors and the last pope were] blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard [the symbol of the Greek Empire], and his feet were as of a bear [signifying the empire of Medo-Persia]), and his mouth as a lion's mouth [signifying the Babylonian empire]: and the Dragon [Satan] gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. [The false prophet was now crowned king of heaven, earth and purgatory and the nature of his rule incorporates all of the attributes of the previous three Gentile world empires]. And I saw one of his heads [Imperial Rome] as if wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed [when Imperial Rome began its transformation to Papal Rome at the First Nicaea Council]: and the whole earth wondered after the wild, untamable beast. And they worshipped the Dragon because he gave authority to the beast: and they worshipped the wild beast, saying, Who is like the beast; who is able to war with him?"
The antichrist spirit was firmly ensconced in Rome where under the first two Seals he consolidated his spiritual and political power. Here, under the Third Seal, he is taking control over demon power by persuading the congregations of his Universal church to maintain Catholic dogmas in face of indisputable Scriptural correction brought by the Reformers. To reject the vindicated Word of God is the unforgivable sin, and a repudiation of the Holy Spirit, with the certain removal of one's name from the Book of Life. For God's Word is the Holy Spirit in a form we can receive by faith. To reject the Holy Spirit by rejecting the revealed Word of God as when a woman cuts her hair (I Corinthians 11:1-16) is to open oneself to the headship and possession of demons. Small wonder Jesus calls Rome, "the home of demons, and the prison of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (Revelation 18:2).
During his ride on the red horse Satan killed all who refused to receive the mark of the beast: his Trinity doctrine with false baptism in three Titles. This almost extinguished the Light of the Gospel because the faith (or understanding of God's Word by the Holy Spirit) was in the hearts of the martyred saints, and went to the grave with them. The resultant spiritual ignorance produced what historians call the Dark Ages.
Under the Third Seal Satan's horse (or power) is colored black because his strategy is to perpetuate the spiritual ignorance of Roman dogma and papal servitude so savagely established under those long dark years of the Thyatira Church Age. He has a pair of balances in his hand, and Christ, the Voice from the throne of God in heaven, declares the meaning of this symbol which John records under further symbols.
Mimicking Satan and the outrageous behavior of his earthly church at this time, Christ cried out, "A measure [choenixabout two to three pints, or one day's provision] of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny." But, He warned, "See that you hurt not the oil and the wine".
Wheat and barley are the staff of natural life. Those better-off ate wheat while common folk ate barley since it was only a third the price of wheat. These grains type the Word of God and prayer which sustain the Spiritual Life of believers. Rome withheld the Word of God, and even though many of her priests were illiterate, lay people were forbidden to read the Bible. Until the advent of the printing press only the very wealthy could afford to own a Bible, at which time Rome was charging for prayernovenas, masses for the dead, or candles to burn before an image of the virgin Mary or some other dead person.
In the natural, oil lamps provided light in darkness whereas in the spiritual, "oil" signifies the Holy Spirit which illuminates God's Word so we can walk in its beautiful Light despite the spiritual Darkness that envelops the world (Leviticus 8:12; 4:12-14; Matthew 25:3-4). The alcoholic spirit in "wine" which stimulates and makes the heart merry, types the Holy Spirit which, when it brings Life to the letter of God's Word, rejoices the soul with the stimulation of revelation.
It is the Voice of Christ that warns Satan away from His elected whose souls were being quickened by the "oil and the wine" ministered by His inspired servants such as Martin Luther, Wesley, Knox and Whitefield, in the Protestant reformation of the Roman Catholic system of worship.
The Message of Martin Luther, the angel to the Sardis Church Age, taught justification is by grace through faith alone, whereas Rome still teaches contrary to Scripture, that justification is by personal works. Luther supported all of his teachings from the Bible which he translated into the vernacular and published on the newly invented printing press so that every man could personally "receive the word with all readiness of mind, then search the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so," and "study to show himself approved of God by rightly dividing the Word of Truth." This revelation showed the Roman church to be full of spiritual Darkness that could be felt, and like the plague of natural darkness in Egypt when there was light in the land of Goshen, under the Third Seal and Fifth Vial there was Spiritual Light in the camps of the Protestant saints, while those serving the Vatican, like Pharaoh and the magicians in his kingdom, "gnawed their tongues in rage" at the frustration of their hopes and the overthrow of their kingdom. Men in mental or bodily anguish bite their lips and their tongues.
Rome had planned revenge, at first through ecclesiastical courts and armed conflict, but she was defeated by the Light of God's Word which exposed her corruption. And later, through the Counter Reformation, which arose from the Jesuit-inspired Oxford Movement (1833) and was a major effort to reunite the Church of England with the Roman Catholic church (and ultimately, to unite all denominations and all religions into one world religion as is now taking place under direction of the Vatican, World Council of Churches, UN and other "Jewish" instruments of influence, particularly World War III, for which they are now uniting the non-Christian Judaeo-Christians to 'tame' Islam). Rome was unable to effect its revenge back then because the elect of God in the Protestant camps could not be deceived on the revealed Word of God. Hence their frenzy. (Today, since Vatican II, and under the general apostasy at end of the Fourth Seal, and Rome will have her way).
Revelation 16:10-11, "The fifth angel poured out his Vial upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds".
Martin Luther's ministry under the Third Seal was God's rebuke to Rome. And under the Fifth Vial it was too late for them to repent of their works, and they blaspheme the God of heaven. The blasphemy is directed no longer simply against the Name, or revelation, but against the God of heaven, the primeval revelation of God. God in His universal revelationhence, against all that is Divine. Thus they pass from their unbelief to demonic belief in which they do recognize God as the author of their plagues and sores, but recognize Him consciously only to blaspheme Him.
The throne of the beast in Vatican City, Rome, is the principal system upon which the power of the antichristian life of the people rests. Rome rules from behind the scenes in every nation. What other 'front' organization but the Roman Catholic church, and who else but the pope could qualify as antichrist with authority to offer peace through one world government, granting hegemony to Satan and his sinister group? Under manipulated circumstances this proposition is sure to be accepted, even implored by earth's inhabitants, stressed beyond sanity by the chaos now beginning to be stirred by Satan's dupes the likes of Bush, Blair and Howard. Rome's pope is the only plausible candidate for the antichrist, "the man of sin, the son of perdition;" his qualifications are tailored for the vocation. Already fully a third of the earth's inhabitants lovingly, willingly, and loyally regard him as vicar over heaven, earth (and purgatory).
Rome's religion, apart from the fact it is blasphemous and false, is of no value whatever to the 'hidden hand' save inasmuch as it has a strong base of billions. Mass power is its sole value. The same might be said of Protestantism, Judaism and all the other isms on an inferior scale, and which all come with Rome since they are certain to side with the beast system at the appropriate time. Unsettling the unthinking mind of the programmed mass, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, retiring Prime Minister of Malaysia, made this point when he stated the obvious: "a few million" Jews rule the world by controlling the strongest nations. He might have added that by various means they also control the strongest religions.
John Wesley was the angel to the Philadelphian Church Age which was also under the Third Seal. His Message added sanctification to Luther's Message of justification by grace through faith and it stressed the necessity for experientially living a holy life. The Sixth Vial that was poured out to distinguish the false believers from the "saved" non-elect at the close of his Church Age "dried up the water of the great river Euphrates; that the way of the kings of the East might be prepared" (Revelation 16:12).
In the natural, the great river Euphrates was the Eastern boundary of the Roman Empire at its most expansive form (in about AD117). In the Spiritual it represents the most easterly influence of the Holy Spirit: the border of Christendom beyond which people are held in cults and pagan religions. In a previous teaching we said, "In the Sixth Vial, the protection of what little Holy Spirit existed in Rome's creeds and the power of her traditions and superstitions is atrophied. "But He that restrains will restrain until the Bride is taken out of the way." The Sixth Vial identifies Rome's destroyers as the rulers from the East. They are invading the minds and hearts of men through propaganda, which people accept because they have no unction of the Holy Spirit with which to defend themselves. These evil spirits are empowered through Roman apostasy, symbolized by the drying up of the Euphrates".
Expressing this in another way we might say that the rejection of Wesley's Message of Scriptural holiness, which was a rebuke to Rome's Anglican (Episcopalian), Presbyterian, and Lutheran daughters, left men in the uncleanliness of starched self-righteousness. Without obedient faith in this further revelation they succumbed to Satan's reasoning, for without knowledge the people perish (Hosea 4:6).
We can see the kings of the East uniting under Judaeo-Communism, Judaeo-Capitalism, Judaeo-Christianity, all manner of pagan religious superstitions and philosophies and the Talmudic filth oozed by mass media and the entertainment industry to destroy morality and human kindness world-wide. As I write, the 'hidden hand' is forcing this union by the barbarous actions of the United States, Britain, Australia and Canada in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and elsewhere in the Middle East.
The Sixth Vial occupies one verse in the Bible, followed by four verses of explanation in parenthesis beginning with Revelation 16:13-14, "I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [an abominable creature (Leviticus 11:10)] come out of the mouth of the Dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty".
The Bible says, "How can two walk together except they be agreed on the Word." Here we have Rome and her image in the natural (the USA), and in the spiritual (Protestant denominations), going off to buy friendship with their enemies. Their strength is not by faith in the arm of the Lord but in political alliances (Isaiah 8:9-13).
When John Wesley's Message of Scriptural holiness was rejected, the churches became subject to unclean spirits from Eastern philosophies and religions, Talmudic influences which Jesus said "make the Word of God of none effect," evolution, communism, and sympathies for heathen cultures whereby faith has been usurped by humanism and reasoning as seen in Vatican II.
These unclean Roman spirits released under the Sixth Vial are influencing Bush II, Blair, Howard and the kings of the whole earth to serve the 'hidden hand' and war with one another and God to gather the whole world to Armageddon, the third, and world-wide revolution, planned in the mid-nineteenth century to yield Lucifer world hegemony.
The Third Seal is also written in Matthew 24:7, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there will be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places".
The demonic Darkness perpetuated and increased by Satan, whose spur drove the Black horse under the Third Seal, should be obvious to us all in that despite almost 500 years of teaching and preaching by the Reformers of the Roman Catholic system of false worship there are more Roman Catholics today under the Fourth Seal than at any time in history. People having forsaken the Word of God and the common sense of thinking, no longer "prove all things, hold fast that which is good" but rest in the comfort of a second-hand religion, the welfare state and puerile entertainments. And instead of praying from the heart, "say a prayer" (Matthew 6:7).
The demonic Darkness of the Third Seal perpetuated and multiplied, produces the three Woes of Fascism, Nazism and Communism under the Fourth Seal "for the Lord visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate Him." Unrecognized by the world, Christ has "come as a thief," and the "kings of the earth" are now blindly gathering the whole world to Armageddon in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the object of creating a dumbed-down new Dark Age of serfdom. Once again there is "a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst of water, but of hearing the Words of the Lord" (Amos 8:11). nl299.htm
