World War III: Part I
The Empire of the Beast
(Edition 1.0 20100223-20100223)
This paper deals with the beginning of the period of the last Thirty Years of this age before the commencement of the Millennium under Christ. It covers the beginning of the War and the establishment of the system of government described in Revelation as the Beast.
The Empire of the Beast
In the work The Last Thirty Years: The Final Struggle (No. 219) (published 1997) the development of the Wars of the Last Days was outlined. The movement of the NATO powers into the states of the former Soviet Union (for the conflict in Afghanistan) was detailed as was the further invasion of Iraq. In the tape issued with that paper the timing of the commencement of these wars of the end was stated as commencing in 2001. As we now know 9/11/2001 was used as the pretext for the invasion of Afghanistan and that invasion took place. The 9/11 event is now being seriously questioned as a false flag event and there are calls for the proper investigation of the matter. If it is as it appears then this disaster will go down as the most infamous betrayal of a people by its own administration in the history of the world. Events will continue to develop in that regard until they are overtaken by the planned operations of the major conflict. The situation is simply too horrific for the average mind to comprehend the stark reality of it all.
The situation in Afghanistan saw supply areas and bases set up in the surrounding areas in what were the former Soviet states of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and also in Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. Resupply is now being effected via the Baltic right through Russia. The area has become a war zone that continues to escalate to this day. The old Soviet pact has been reaffirmed and the US has had to close one of its bases down but it is in essence still a war zone over the region.
The period of the thirty years mentioned in paper No. 219 was to constitute the period of the Mourning for Moses equivalent of the 30 days in the Wilderness at the end of the Forty years before the entry to the Promised Land. This period is the last thirty years of the forty jubilees in the wilderness from 27 CE to 2027 CE before the entry to the Promised Land for the rule of the Messiah in the Millennium.
On 19 March 2003, under a bogus guise of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), the US and its “coalition of the willing” invaded Iraq. Events have turned out exactly as we published in the Sabbath Messages at the time before and during the invasion (see the Sabbath Messages of 2003 et seq. http://www.ccg.org/_domain/ccg.org/Sabbath/2003/sabbath2003.htm)
There is no peace and stability in either place and the war is set to escalate. There are well over a million dead already with many more to go. There is no security following these actions.
These events commenced the “Wars of the End” which are in effect an ongoing conflagration that will be referred to historically as WWIII.
The Bible is not silent on these activities and most of the prophets cover them in one way or another. The major prophetic references are contained in the work War of Hamon-Gog (No. 294). Iran is also central to these prophecies and the escalation will ensnare Iran and other nations. This work is aimed at detailing the development of the centralising world systems to explain what the Bible means when it deals with the prophecies, and especially those of Revelation, in explaining what is to occur in the days ahead of us.
God is about to deal with the world and its evil thinking and behaviour. The Muslim countries are infected with hypocrisy and that behaviour is condoned by the West. Sodomy is rampant among the Afghans and Islam generally, and especially among their leaders. It is known as Bacha Bazi or the systematic grooming and sodomising of youths and their training as dancers and courtesans. God is not mocked. This situation will be stamped out.
We will look at the final Empire of Satan which we understand as the Empire of the Beast.
We find reference to this system in Revelation chapters 13 and 14. This sequence follows on from chapter 12, but is different from that sequence.
 And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;  she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery.  And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads.  His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth;  she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,  and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.  Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,  but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.  And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world -- he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.  And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.  And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.  Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!"  And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had borne the male child.  But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.  The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with the flood.  But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon had poured from his mouth.  Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.
In chapter 12 we saw the conflict of Christ and Satan and then the persecution of the woman who gave birth to the male child. This was the Church of God resident in the nation of Judah and Levi which was the residue of the nation of Israel. The nation of Israel was the birthright of the Messiah and from which he would be born (cf. Deut. 32:8ff.). The Woman was the birthright nations forming the Israel of God, the nucleus of which was formed by the prophets of God. The woman and the prophets of the Scriptures form the Churches of God over the OT period and the Forty Jubilees in the Wilderness from 27 CE to 2027 CE. They were to go through these 1260 prophetic days/years mentioned in this text. The period shows the build up to the birth of the Messiah and then his death and his ascension into heaven. The sequence in chapter 12 is broken into two parts. They both involve the persecution of the church by Satan. The two periods of 1260 days indicate we are dealing with the period of the 1260-year days as is standard for prophecy and also the second sequence is a time, times and half a time (1260 days or three and a half years). This is repeated, indicating two periods of type-antitype distinct from one another in the period of the persecution. The first part was when the church and also Judah were taken into the wilderness. The nation was dispersed also and persecuted for it. It was still the inheritance of the Messiah and in its loins ran the genes of the future sons of God under Christ. But they were not to be called as yet. Many of them are in fact Gentiles, and not Jews or Levites, and they also depend on Christ for salvation.
Many of the descendants of Israel and offspring of David were hidden in the lineages of the Gentiles. The Celts and Anglo-Saxons of Europe and the British Isles contain the offspring of Israel and the females have intermarried to the extent that these nations are the offspring of Israel, and many are the offspring of the family of Christ. Many of these people are the Desposyni, or those belonging to the Lord, which the religious system of the whore failed to eradicate (see the paper Genetic Origin of the Nations (No. 265) and also the papers associated with them, The Virgin Mariam and the Family of Jesus Christ (No. 232)) and Hittites in the House of David (No. 067C).
After the second period of 1260 days we see the war is made on the rest of the offspring of the woman. They are those who keep the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus (KJV). The RSV says bear testimony to Jesus but that is not the sense of the text. The Concordant Literal NT renders the text as “who have the Testimony of Jesus.” Marshall’s Greek English Interlinear renders the Greek as: “and having the witness of Jesus,” which is the actual meaning, as also rendered by the Concordant Literal NT. Revelation 14:12 identifies the elect as those who keep the commandments of God and the Faith of Jesus which is identical with the Concordant rendering in Revelation 12:17.
We thus can expect, from Revelation 12, a period of 1260 years of the persecution of the Churches of God. We saw this persecution occur from 590 CE to 1850 over the formation and death of the Holy Roman Empire throughout all areas that the Trinitarian church ruled. Much of this trauma is discussed in the paper Role of the Fourth Commandment in the Historical Sabbath-keeping Churches of God (No. 170) and also in the paper General Distribution of the Sabbath-keeping Churches (No. 122). See also the paper The Inquisition in Britain: Forty Decades for Repentance (No. 290B).
The next period of intense persecution occurred from the Third Reich under Hitler. The camp system all over Europe saw the Sabbatarians persecuted all over Europe together with the followers of Judaism and many other groups and peoples. The Jehovah’s Witness system was also caught up in it but it was not specifically directed at them. That persecution lasted from 1941 to 1944 and the wholesale murders ended in Europe with the defeat of Nazi Germany and the cessation of persecution in Western Europe, but the next phase began and the system under Satan continued the persecution of the saints in Eastern Europe into the gulags of Siberia. That persecution is ongoing and has never stopped under the world’s religious system. The aim is to suppress the faith and the truth of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and ultimately destroy the church and all in it. If Christ did not return to save humanity there would be no flesh left alive. Christ returns to save those who eagerly await him. That includes those who are sincerely deceived by the satanic system but nevertheless rest their hopes on the return of the Messiah.
The persecution continues up until the end. Satan and his religious system will try to eliminate the entire elect predestined by the calling of God. These people include both those who are Jews and Levites and the other Semites now who say they are Jews but are not, and all the Gentiles now part of the religion of Judaism, but who are Gentiles, the majority of who are not even Semites. These people are especially vulnerable because they are not yet baptised into the body of Christ and so are able to be killed unless they are set aside to be called into the Church of God. The major groups of the people that are intended to be destroyed are the other nations of Israel that are not part of Judah or Levi and are scattered over the world. These are by far the major part of the Nation of Israel.
The Nation of Israel is actually marked by the IJ supergroup and most are in fact Hg. I as explained in the paper Genetic Origin of the Nations (No. 265). To disguise the fact the evolutionist have backdated the Hg I to 30,000 years and declared them proto Semites after we had shown I and J to have been one supergroup Hg. IJ and the scientists proved it from the S2 and S22 links. Hg. J is a division of Hg. I.
The system of the Last Days also has a dual system that is of the body of Satan and involves the Fallen Host and the devotees of Satan and their current rulership of the earth. These people will try to destroy all the people who form part of the nations of Israel and to do that they must set up a world system that is capable of total control and of being able to force a general worship of Satan and his system. Most of the devotees of Satan do not understand that they will die were it not for the intervention of Christ in these end days.
We see that this system is described as a beast and it is worshipped because the Dragon has given it his power and throne and great authority. Because of the power that he was able to bestow, the people of this system worshipped the Red Dragon who had taken a third of the Host with him and they had been cast to the earth with him also.
 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads.  And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, its feet were like a bear's, and its mouth was like a lion's mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.  One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed the beast with wonder.  Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?"  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months;  it opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven.  Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation,  and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain.  If any one has an ear, let him hear:  If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if any one slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.  Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.  It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.  It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men;  and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived;  and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.  Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,  so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.  This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
This sequence is also tied into the OT prophecies in Daniel especially that of chapter 2 and subsequently where we see the image of gold carry on through the empires of the Babylonians, the Medes and Persians, the Greeks and their subsidiaries. The legs of iron were the Roman Empire and on into the Holy Roman Empire which replaced it. This religious system was the feet of iron and clay and that empire lasted until 1850 in power even though it had been disbanded by Napoleon in 1809. It was reconstituted in 1815 and lasted in power until 1850 with the revolutions and was finally disbanded completely in 1872. It was then dormant but conspired with the nations of Europe to destroy the seed of the woman and is still doing so.
The ten toes are part of that system but its system arises in the Last Days as a new system having both iron and clay, but it is more diverse and, as the toes are smaller, its empire is of lesser duration. This offshoot of the Holy Roman Empire, which at its base was a religious system committing fornication with the kings of the earth under the rule of Satan, was the Babylonian religious system and controlled the world as did the Roman and Holy Roman system before it. It emerged in WWII under Hitler as a quasi-Pagan system using the European religious structure, both Catholic and Protestant. It was nearly successful but not quite. The formal structure of the Beast was not to be allowed to rule so early as it would have eliminated all people unless Messiah was sent at that early stage. That would have meant an equally long period at the end of the Millennium and that meant too much damage then. Thus he was not allowed to bring this last Empire of the Beast into fruition until these Last Days.
That time is now upon us. We are in the time of Revelation 13. The Empire of the Beast is about to be formed and given power. The power is formed in two ways.
First a Regional system is formed. The Last King of the North in the Book of Daniel is formed out of the Empire of the Ten Toes. That occurs after the weakening and taking over of the US system by its pagan satanic societies. It is headed by the European Union which was centred on the Club of Rome formed from March 1957. The UN is used as the cover for this world governing bureaucracy.
The 50 years (or one jubilee) of that system’s preparation ended at Passover 2007. It then began to emerge. In 2009 the last nation in Europe ratified the Lisbon Protocol when Czechoslovakia signed. The United Kingdom will declare their intention to either give the British people a referendum or not. If the Conservatives declare for a referendum then it is most likely they will win office. The British people may well refuse to join and withdraw. It is at present part of a Pan European Bureaucracy that is not an elected government in any democratic sense.
The regionalisation requires the US to become part of a North American Union. To that end power has been given to the Chinese communists by the Satanists in the American administration. President Carter transferred effective control of the Panama Canal and the Chinese now are establishing bases for armed forces in Panama. Key intelligence was transferred to them by President Clinton. His wife is now US Secretary of State. The Chinese will regionalise the Pacific. This conflict will be the Achilles heel of the system and will cause extended war.
After regionalisation there must be overall governmental control of the nations by a single governing group. This governmental system is being established now and the draft treaty being floated from the failed Copenhagen summit will set the framework for that. Nothing was signed at Copenhagen on 2 December 2009 but it will occur from 2010 onwards. The UN draft is on their web site and those who are aware of it are withholding the evidence from their own voters. It is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It is aimed at seizing control of the government, economy and infrastructure of the world.
The New World Order, which is the biblical Empire of the Beast of the Last Days, is using the fictitious doctrine that human activity is causing Global Warming when it is a known fact that Global Warming is cyclical in nature and occurs every 1000 years or so and lasts for approximately five centuries and then cools down again (see the paper Global Warming - Historical Cycles (No. 218b)). The scientific community is guilty of gross misconduct and deception in their handling of the science of this issue in all aspects of the argument. Philosophers are even worse in their spineless acquiescence to this opportunistic lie. It is this Environmental Movement which rests on the doctrines of demons of vegetarianism and the forbidding of marriage to destroy the family that is the new religion of the New World Order. It is founded on lies and the doctrines of demons (see the paper Doctrines of Demons in the Last Days (No. 48) and also Vegetarianism and the Bible (No. 183)). The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the source of the deceit and propaganda for the UN structured Beast that will ultimately take over the world. Some scientists are only just now waking up to the shocking propaganda being used to deceive the whole world. Anyone who opposes the lies is damned by propaganda and defamation.
The whore and her harlot daughters will attempt to use this Religion of Environmentalism and its evolutionary basis but will finally be destroyed by it. We will explain that sequence later in the series.
The Australian political system is aware of it but neither side of the house wants to discuss it or even make the Australian public aware of it. They know about it because we raised it with several prominent senators and shadow ministers and only one office responded. They admit it is a threat to national sovereignty and private property rights. The “scheme for the new institutional arrangement under the Convention” that starts on page 18 contains the provision for a “government.” The aim is to give a new as yet unnamed U.N. body the power to directly intervene in the financial, economic, tax and environmental affairs of all nations that sign the treaty (see also the WSJ article by Janet Albrechtsen at: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703574604574500580285769074.htm).
Lord Christopher Monckton draws attention to this in his video address listed on YouTube. Although he ignored the successive warm periods before the Mediaeval Warm Period (MWP) he does acknowledge that fact but follows the argument claiming the new cold period. A freeze will indeed occur over the short term in the Gulf Stream, but it will not stop the onset of the Global Warming of the new Millennial Warm Period.
It was good to see that in Canberra at the National Press club on 3 February 2010 in his introduction to Christopher Monckton there that Professor Plymmer finally referred to the Roman Warm Period that we have been trying to get them to understand and recognise. The press coverage of that address by the ABC was negated with misinformation and uninformed comment by others added to the report to negate what was said. These people are either truly uninformed or are part of the problem and don’t care what is true. The so-called science of the argument is composed of systematic frauds on an ongoing basis and slowly the people are becoming aware of what is being done to them.
The entire UN treaty is aimed at setting up this new organisation and to control the financial cash flows and indeed compel them by forcing the developed countries to pay an adaptation debt to developing countries to allegedly support climate change mitigation. Clause 33 (p. 39) says that “by 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be [at least $67 billion] or [in the range of $70 billion to $140 billion per year]” (ibid.). They will raise the money from the developed countries such as US, Australia, Britain and Canada by such means as option 7 on page 135, which provides for “a [global] levy of 2 per cent on international financial market [monetary] transaction to Annex I parties.” Annex I countries are the industrialised countries. They hope to get the UN majority of the developing countries to sign the treaty and then use the UN committee to force the regulations on the developed nations that are stupid enough to sign the treaty. Once signed no one can get out of it unless every single signatory agrees, which will be impossible. This document in its final form will become the basis of world government.
A series of crises are being engineered from 2010, following on from the so-called Global Financial Crisis (GFC) to convince the world to hand over power to this body which will enslave it. The European Union cannot be left to control it with the Euro and nor can the US dollar be the medium of currency. All financial collapses are simply aimed at regionalising currency in the short term so that a final world system based on Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) can be implemented and all people controlled by one interrelated controlled system. The organised collapse of the European Union countries such as Portugal, Ireland, Italy Greece and Spain (PIIGS) is merely part of the financial consolidation of the Beast Power.
The general conspiracy to establish the New World Order exists for all to see and is on the UN web site. However, the denial phase is underway where the international conspiracy is denied, even as they implement it. The use of cognitive dissonance is standard for this type of indoctrination. The idea that there is an international conspiracy is ridiculed and anyone who suggests that it is a Leftist agenda is attacked as a “Right wing crank” or “Nutter” or if one refers to Bible Prophecy they are labelled a “Religious Nutter.” The sad fact is that these internationalist socialists will get what they want and when they have got it they will reap the whirlwind and be destroyed by what they helped to bring about. It is in fact a fascist system of world domination that will perform as a controlled economy but will be far from the great worker’s paradise for which they think they are working. The same process of denial and introduction by stealth has been perfected and used against the churches of God in order to silence them and destroy their capacity for criticism. The churches of God have been through it all before and should be able to recognise what is being done to them. Many of the ministry are actually behind or supporting it.
Pension funds are being destroyed and company profitability is being destroyed as part of the ongoing crisis.
It is a matter of fact that UN institutions and their policy recommendations are grossly under-scrutinised. Such UN or international institutions don't have the same permanent opposition developed through parliamentary systems. They operate in unsupervised secrecy.
The permanent bureaucracies of these institutions have progressively been infiltrated by Leftist activists. They have then shifted their role from neutral administrators into policy advocacy bodies lecturing governments about what they should do and how they should govern.
They have enlisted the socialist left of the world. Australia is a pathetic example. At the Copenhagen climate conference, it has been reported that approximately 30,000 of the 45,000 registered delegates were Green-Left activists pushing for a UN treaty that sought to haul capitalism into a regulatory framework based on environmental principles. Australia took a party of 114 delegate hangers on.
UN institutions have been driving the dishonest debate about climate change. The Australian public have been deceived into debating how to introduce huge non-revenue neutral taxes and regulations that will harm its global competitiveness. It is insanity. The politicians need to be swept from office but the Bible is clear that Satan will effect this system. It will happen in the near future. These “convenient idiots” of the NWO will sell the world into slavery not fully comprehending what it is they do.
The UN is not just concerned with Climate Change. They want entire bureaucratic control over consumption and foods based on false data over health and pharmaceuticals.
The activists and their academic fellow travellers are looking for a framework convention seeking to bind countries on how they deliver health services and regulate food consumption. They do this under the guise of tackling obesity and binge-drinking, and further marginalising smokers and so on.
The public does not comprehend the enormity of the politicisation of international institutions. Thus the activists regularly cite UN recommendations to support the curtailing of freedoms we take for granted.
The so-called “Liberal” political frame work has failed to deal with the Left in international structures and the ground has been lost before they even realised what had been done to them. The Right is only just waking up to what has been done to it but even now does not realise the enormity of it, and it is now too late. The Right and Liberal groups in the US combined in its leadership to sell out the USA and Western Democracy and private enterprise.
The UN system was set up by Roosevelt and Stalin at Yalta and it has gone unhindered ever since. These demons sold the world into slavery.
The aim is the total enslavement of the world under what they think is a Fabian socialist model. The result will be total destruction.
This is not a conflict of so-called freedom and democratic values versus the controlled economies of the socialist state that most of these convenient idiots think they are working towards. This is the worst institution that man has ever seen or will see. It is controlled by demonic powers whose sole aim is to eliminate mankind and the Satanists are too stupid to realise they are the last victims in the planned sequence. The NWO planners use convenient idiots from all walks of life. The vegans support it so that they can enforce their aberration on the rest of society. The communists think they will get their utopia. The tree-huggers think they will save the planet from what is in fact a problem over which they have no control. The bankers aim to take over the world finances and enslave the rest of the world. The Satanists obey demons that actually despise them and intend to destroy them. They control the whore and intend to destroy it. They will achieve that by 2025 and billions will die.
This is the New World Order of the Government or Empire of the Beast. The whole world will give their power to this Beast. It will be controlled behind the scenes by a financial group of cartel-owned Reserve banks and no nation will be able to control its own financial destiny or sovereignty, just like the US is unable to do now. The developing nations will be deceived into agreeing, thinking that they will benefit but they will be enslaved by it and only a very few will benefit for a short period until they themselves are destroyed. Modern technology will be used to control everyone and Orwell’s nightmare will be upon us, only worse than he imagined it. The technology is already here. Go on to Facebook and see how many email addresses that you are confronted with that you have used as early as six years ago and sometimes only once or twice. They know all about you in the US already.
In addition, there will be a concerted attempt to eradicate massive numbers of people by using the toxins and virus contamination of the earth. For example, see this article and then watch for the release of new and deadly types of these man-made virus plagues.
Also, four of the most powerful angels of the earth that are confined at present are to be released in order to kill a third of mankind. We will deal with these aspects later.
This empire is foretold by Scripture, both OT and NT, and Scripture cannot be broken (Jn. 10:34-35). There is only one way out of it and that is through the maelstrom. Every single person who takes this mark and is part of this system will die. It is the final division of the earth into two systems, one of God and the other of Baal or Satan (see the paper Mark of the Beast (No. 25)).
The politicians of the United States and the British Commonwealth are stupid enough to think they can control this Beast and be part of its elite governing system. The aim is quite the reverse. The aim of the last Babylonian system is to eradicate the people of God and all the seed of the woman and that includes them, and they are too stupid to realise it.
An attempt was made by the US Republicans to boycott the committee meeting using a section which says that there must be at least two of the minority party in the decision making. The Democrats were using another clause to get around it and effectively endorse it and send a de facto agreement to Copenhagen. Although no agreement was reached at Copenhagen, they will not stop this from happening and what will result from this Empire will be total world war. At the time of the end the King of the South shall attack the King of the North. Fundamentalist Islam is the King of the South now. The occupation of the Middle East will continue even into Jerusalem. Very soon now the final phase of the “News from the East and North” will alarm this King of the North and it will go out to utterly destroy many. This event is the final phase of WWIII.
The war has been engineered by rhetoric since the invasion of Iraq. Since 2003 the conflict has been staged between Israel and Iran to enable the war to be staged with impunity.
Iran is playing into it because of the intense conflict within its own system. It needs a war to consolidate its own internal structure. The Mullahs can’t even talk to each other and the nation is polarised. War is inevitable. They are trying to provoke Israel to attack in order to consolidate power. The New World Order advocates are engineering the war behind the scenes. Some military figures recognise it but most are promoted beyond their level of competence or integrity and are unable to see the way through it.
The conflict in the east and north will force the NATO powers into general war in the near future. There will be conflict from Iran to Turkey and into Russia. We will explain how the conflict occurs in the subsequent parts of this series.
When The Northern Power has returned to Jerusalem and set up its palatial tents for world dominion it will occupy from Gaza to Jerusalem for 42 months or the 1260 days of the Witnesses (see the paper The Witnesses (including the Two Witnesses) (No. 135)).
Christ will come and the stone uncut by human hands will strike this idol on the feet of iron and miry clay and it will meet its end with none to help it. Then we will deal with the rest of the world under Messiah, as we see from the next chapter. We will explain how the wars of the end unfold and that will occur next.
 Then I looked, and lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads.  And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; the voice I heard was like the sound of harpers playing on their harps,  and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth.  It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb,  and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are spotless.  Then I saw another angel flying in midheaven, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people;  and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, for the hour of his judgment has come; and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the fountains of water."  Another angel, a second, followed, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of her impure passion."  And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any one worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,  he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name."  Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.  And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!"  Then I looked, and lo, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.  And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat upon the cloud, "Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe."  So he who sat upon the cloud swung his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.  And another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.  Then another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has power over fire, and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Put in your sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe."  So the angel swung his sickle on the earth and gathered the vintage of the earth, and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God;  and the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the wine press, as high as a horse's bridle, for one thousand six hundred stadia.
The time from now until the return of Messiah and our resurrection will be a nightmare, but by faith we will see it all through.
The Wars continue after the return of the Messiah and on to 2025.
Over one third of the world will be killed in the War of the Sixth Trumpet alone.
We will explain that sequence in Part B.
