OmegaShock.com has been in existence for more than three years, and it has been an eye-opening experience for me. I have run into almost every kind of theory about what the Bible says, and it has been disheartening to see how few of them actually conform to what is in the Bible. And, it’s disheartening not just because it is evidence of people lacking a love of the truth.
No, what is depressing is that these theories are placing people squarely in the path of disaster, and there seems to be nothing that anyone can do or say to nudge such people out of harm’s way.
Two years ago, I stumbled across something that knocked me down and shook me up. In other words, it was a revelation.
When ancient Greeks suffered such a revelation, they referred to it as ἀποκάλυψις, or apocálypsis (normally, with the involvement of some diety). Of course, we don’t say ‘apocalypsis’. We say ‘apocalypse’.
How do we use ‘apocalypse’ today?
When we say ‘apocalypse’, we mean disaster. That is because the Book of Revelation, which is chock full of disaster, was written in Greek. And, the title of the book?
Why is it that God loves such a tiny place on the map?
Why does He choose THAT place above all others?
Now, some of you read your Bible and would probably point to the one place in the Land of Israel that God loves most of all.
But, that doesn’t make sense, either. It’s not the tallest hill in Israel. In fact, it’s surrounded by hills that are more than 50 meters taller. It’s not the prettiest hill. It’s not the greenest. In fact, there’s nothing that you can point to that indicates anything special about the place.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3)
I was going to write about something else today, but I was asked a question which dovetailed with some of my research. And, as I thought about the question… and, as I was reading about the man at the center of the question… I began to realize what happened just three days ago.
Revelation 13, and Revelation 17 introduce something very strange, a beast with seven heads and ten horns. He comes out of the sea. One of the heads is wounded in a way the seems impossible to survive. We also find that this beast ascends out of the ‘bottomless pit’ (i.e., Hell). This beast is also ridden by a prostitute.
Making sense of biblical prophecy is an incredible struggle. The Bible gives you a box of puzzle pieces with half of them left out and a fuzzy description of what the final picture should look like. The Bible then goes on to tell you that putting this puzzle together may mean the difference between life and death.
It’s not fair, right?
But, God has reasons for doing it this way, and our job is to make the best of all this and trust that He will guide us even when we make a mess of it. I’ve certainly made a hash of biblical prophecy in the past, but the Lord has always kept me on the path that I need to be.
I just finished watching A Lamp In The Dark, a three hour long documentary about the history of The Bible and the Roman Catholic Church’s attempts to suppress it. It is a very good movie, and one thing stands out to me – the Roman Catholic Church is VERY European. I believe that it is very much a part of the fourth beast, as opposed to being a rider of it.
Having said that, this is an impression and not to be considered as ‘hard evidence’. We’ll be doing ‘hard evidence’ about the Roman Catholic Church later.
I’m going to devote the entirety of ‘Part 2’ to Chapter 4. Chapter 4 really is foundational to the author’s claim that America is The Daughter of Babylon. If the author can successfully establish the identity of ‘The Daughter of Babylon’, then everything else is merely detail.
Of course, ‘merely detail’ encompasses a lot of ground. For instance, if the US really IS the ‘Daughter of Babylon’ or ‘Babylon the Great’, then you are going to have to leave the US. It’s not a suggestion – and, the author goes into detail about this command in Chapter 13.
