Like A Thief October 22, 2008Posted by Watchman in America, Christian, Day of the Lord, Economic Crisis, Europe, Fulfilling Prophecy.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
I’ve posted this passage many times as indeed it is central to where I feel called, to watch. The question is, how is it that the day of the Lord could come like a thief without the majority of the world noticing? I think Glenn Beck recently hit the nail on the head in his October 8, 2008 radio show regarding the things that are happening and what they could mean. Things are going to be coming fast and hard leaving those who haven’t been watching and don’t understand what is going on dizzy and confused in the whirlwind of events. Many who have built their treasures on earth will be wondering what to do. When a person is overloaded with so much from all sides, they have a hard time keeping track of anything.
On the financial side of things, the calls have already been made from leaders around the world for a globalized financial system (news here and here) and the central banks from around the world have now worked in cooperation to lower interest rates globally. (news here) Now a post-election global talks being pushed by the EU on the current financial crisis are being planned for November 15 in Washington D.C.. (news here) Meanwhile, Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden is warning his constituents of coming unpopular decisions Obama will make. I believe these are all steps to to the ultimate financial control described in Bible prophecy.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
But we are not in darkness. Who is “we” and how can we not be in darkness? We are a special group, not for anything of ourselves, but rather in spite of ourselves by the grace of God. The only thing special about us in this world of darkness today is that we have seen the Truth in God’s Word and believed it. For this we are also rejected by those of this world, but Truth and reality will always overcome fables because they exist outside of an imagination that fades away. For a greater understanding of how we will be rejected, look into the Alliance of Civilizations (more here) with the understanding that “the world” is increasingly pluralistic in its view of acceptable belief systems. There’s also endorsement from the Obama campaign of the AoC. (news here)
As I have learned, and tried to express in the Watchman Bible study website, that we have a source of understanding given in great detail that provides the hope we cannot find in the things of this world. Moreover, it also foretells what is to come and provides the comfort of understanding our eternal place in God’s kingdom in spite of the troubles and tribulations of this earthly realm. In this we find not only understanding that gives us peace in the midst of tribulations, but hope in the glories yet to come for them that love God.
While I think Glenn Beck is placing his hope in the wrong place, he is right that knowing the future is a buffer to prepare ourselves mentally for the coming challenges rather than being caught completely by surprise. Where I place my hope is in Yeshua the Christ and His Word, the Bible, which reveals not only the things of the spirit, but also prepares those who believe for the future foretold to come within its pages and centered on Him. Even though I know difficult times are coming and indeed here for many, I will always have joy in the midst of them because of the faith, hope and love I have found in God’s Word. My desire is to share that with anyone who wants those things as well.
What we are told over and over again in scripture is to watch, and the context of these warnings is centered on the coming day of the Lord that comes like a thief on an unsuspecting world and likened to the days of Noah and Lot.
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
With all that is going on are you feeling a little lost? Do you feel panic setting in? I hope not, but I want to let you know that there is hope, not in the things of this world because we have been told they will fall. Rather than build up treasures on this earth though, I encourage you to build your treasure in heaven because that lasts forever. It all begins with a belief and acceptance of Yeshua as your Savior and the recognition of personal guilt in transgressing God’s ways of perfect love. We all have and still do, but those who love God try to obey Him with all their heart, mind and soul – the body follows. I think this scripture is central considering Yeshua laid His life down for us, true love is selfless.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
God is love and Yeshua expressed that perfect love by becoming a perfect sacrifice, taking your personal sins upon Himself and dying in them so that you could live. The evil that has befallen this world is a result of free will departing from God’s ways of selfless Love. God, not inhibiting free will, has provided eternal salvation from eternal death through the sacrifice of Love by His Son Yeshua. If you have a hard time believing what the Bible says, please read through the Watchman Website. In the area of creation vs. evolution, historical fulfillment and current unfolding of events I have tried to bring together what has built my faith to share with those who have ears to hear and help build up your faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
I recommend reading all of Hebrews 11 and going over the stories presented there to define faith. This world is going to fall apart, but you don’t have to fall apart with it. Wicked people are going to take advantage of the chaos to gain greater control and God is going to give this world what it wants, not Him. We saw this spirit displayed when the people were given the choice of releasing Yeshua or Barabas the murderer. And so today the name of Jesus (Yeshua) is looked upon with distain by much of the world in favor of a more all-inclusive belief system that sometimes even uses His name apart from acceptance of His Word.
Watch what is happening in light of scripture, accepting God at His Word and in it, and don’t be sucked into the chaos and the blindness that comes with it. We have not been given a spirit of fear and understanding what is going down provides us the opportunity to be a greater witness and point of stability standing on the foundation of the Word of God. In doing so the waves will crash against us in the storm, but standing on the rock, our firm foundation, will also be a beacon for those looking for the peace and stability we have in Christ.
We are not in darkness, but what we are seeing unfolding now will distract the majority of the people from what is prophesied to come, the fulfillment of the promised return of the bridegroom to gather His bride and the day of God’s wrath on the children of disobedience. (see Day of the Lord) I just want to encourage you, trust in the Lord and don’t be caught unawares at such a time as this, WATCH!
May the Lord continue to bless and keep you as you remain in Him.
2008 Global Financial Crisis Report June 28, 2008Posted by Watchman in America, Economic Crisis, Europe, New World Order.
Tags: Crisis, Economy, Finance, Global
The 2008 ICA McAlvany Report is an online collection of videos of a DVD that you can order for free here. I highly recommend watching this presentation that gives some history of the current global financial crisis that is now upon us. Don and David McAlvany analyze the financial market chaos of 2008 and its immediate impact on the real world economy of 2009 and beyond.
My own belief based on the HIStory, Our Future timeline and what is reported here is that we are on the verge of a global financial crisis that could lead to the collapse of the current systems combined with other events that will happen leading to the implementation of a global cashless system based on RFID technology that will prevent anyone from buying or selling if they choose not to participate. Somark has an RFID tattoo ink that is currently being used to track cattle that could be implemented on humans so that they would receive a “mark” that could not be stolen or transferred that would be linked to a global database, being put together now under various national ID systems. This system would not require printing any new currencies because it would be completely electronic. In addition, since it would replace currency, anyone left with nothing but their old Dollars, Euros or whatever else would be left with nothing that any stores would take. And have you seen those Paypass systems being attached to debit card machines at McDonalds and theaters and grocery stores all over? The infrastructure is already being put in place so that all that is needed are initiation centers where people can go to get a tattoo and be entered in the database. Without that, you cannot buy or sell anywhere. Who do you serve, God or mammon?
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
“Lucifer comes to give us the final … Luciferic initiation … that many people now and in the days ahead, will be facing — for it is an initiation into the New Age. … No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.” | David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations Reflections on the Christ [Book: 1978], quoted in ‘Unicorn in the Sanctuary‘, by Randy England, 1978, Interconnections Must-read link

End of Nations – EU Takeover & the Lisbon Treaty : Video – 1:22:28
“We set out to make a video about the pros and cons of the Lisbon Treaty and found out to our horror the lies, manipulations and deceit behind the EU. From MEPs, legal experts and EU researches the true nature of the EU unfolded, how it really operates from behind closed doors and away from prying eyes. We discovered the massive power grab away from citizens and nations to the elites that is being proposed in this treaty. Most shocking of all was how our elected representatives are willingly handing us over to this emerging Totalitarian Superstate by deception , propaganda and outright lies.
“This video details how the structures of the EU really operate, what the full significance of the Lisbon Treaty is and how it is the end of Nations within in the EU. MEPs describe their experience in Brussels and how they are undermined by the real power of the unelected and unaccountable Eurocrats who run the organization. How the politicians are working together for their own selfish needs while being used for a bigger agenda.”

In the course of studying Bible prophecy and watching current events, a series of events became clear that I would like to lay out for you here. It began with my personal search through the Bible to see for myself if God’s Word clarified itself to the point of the bride of Christ being able to understand the times in which we live. I had read in the Bible that we would not be in darkness and that we should watch and pray, but there are so many personal interpretations of scripture out there and I hadn’t taken the time to really search the scriptures myself because I didn’t feel I had the background to understand. So acknowledging my deficiencies, I came before the Lord in prayer and asked Him to reveal His Word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and show me His plans and not my own desires or interpretations of His plans.
This doesn’t mean I’m always right and this is not a claim to have all the answers. I will never stop warning people not to take my word for anything but to search the scriptures themselves to see whether these things are so. Acts 17:11 The Watchman Bible Study website is the result of my search for Truth and my desire to share the clarity I’ve discovered written into and interpreted by the Bible. While I am not always correct the Bible is, and so if this sequence of events does not turn out to be completely accurate that doesn’t change the Bible’s validity, just shows my lack of full understanding.
What I would like to focus on in this post is a collection of diverse prophesies found throughout the Bible in the order of events as understood through examining the context of these prophesies in light of the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies. The premise of this collection of research by other watchmen on the wall traces Israel’s judgment history through time and showing how that snaps to Israel’s feast days and the 70th week of Daniel, the final seven years of God dealing with Israel before His return in glory. These studies examine the precision of Bible prophecy and history to build faith in what was already fulfilled with 100% accuracy to look toward the future with faith that God’s Word will again be fulfilled in the future with that same accuracy. According to Matthew 24:14,15 “the end” comes at the abomination of desolation, which the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies place in just under one year (February 16, 2009) from today (March 3, 2008).
I am not lost on the significance of making a statement like this, but I am sure if you examine the information at the links provided, you too will see the significance of what I am going to share. Please also note that while this post is focusing on Bible prophecy that is 100% accurate in its future fulfillment, there isn’t the kind of precise dates connected to them and so the timing is my estimation based on my research. This is this watchman’s perspective on what may come to pass in 2008 and how that will explain and connect to the HIStory, Our Future conclusions for the timing of the 70th week of Daniel and the abomination of desolation that will transpire in the midst of that seven years – 2009.
The Lisbon Draft Reform Treaty January 9, 2008Posted by Watchman in America, Bible Prophecy, Europe, New World Order.
Tags: America, Bible Prophecy, Christian, Europe, NATO, New World Order, Terrorism
The Lisbon Treaty is basically the European Constitution under a different name. It offers many of the powers previously sought to create a Foreign Minister position that would speak for Europe. Regarding who that power has been given in the past, I will let the leaders speak for themselves.
“We have finally decided that Europe will speak with one voice, that of Mr. Solana.” | Jacques Chirac: Regarding Solana’s visit to Damascus for the Hariri inquiry Solana to Restore EU Ties with Syria (March 9, 2007)
“Solana has the power and has had it since January 30, 1999. We are speaking with one voice through Javier Solana.” | Madeline Albright: USA Secretary of State Regarding Solana being given sole power to make all further military decisions over NATO Balkan operations.
“I agree with Javier Solana’s decision to do this.” | Bill Clinton: March 21, 1999 in regards to the forthcoming bombings from the above quote.
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
In short, I will share some excerpts from this new European government structure and show also how it is connected to NATO and thereby the United States to have military and civilian assets available in the event of an emergency as determined by Mr. Europe to conquer terrorist forces if need be to keep order, peace and security. And so by peace many will be destroyed.
The following are excerpts from the documents linked above. The purpose is to show in the documentation how power consolidation is being made such that all resources will be available to the High Representative over the military and civilian forces of the EU and UN:
Article 9e page 9
2. The High Representative shall conduct the Union’s common foreign and security policy. He or she shall contribute by his or her proposals to the development of that policy, which he or she shall carry out as mandated by the Council. The same shall apply to the common security and defence policy.
3. The High Representative shall preside over the Foreign Affairs Council.
Article 13 page 9
3. The common foreign and security policy shall be put into effect by the High Representative and by the Member States, using national and Union resources.
Article 19 page 11 - With the LISBON TREATY Solana has a foot in the UN security Council and has the EU countries there work for his interests:
“Member States which are also members of the United Nations Security Council will concert and keep the other Member States, and the High Representative, fully informed. Member States which are members of the Security Council will, in the execution of their functions, defend the positions and the interests of the Union, without prejudice to their responsibilities under the provisions of the United Nations Charter. When the Union has defined a position on a subject which is on the United Nations Security Council agenda, those Member States which sit on the Security Council shall request that the High Representative be asked to present the Union’s position “[…]
Article 9e page 12
2. Furthermore, the Conference recalls that, as regards the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy whose term of office will start in November 2009 at the same time and for the same duration as the next Commission, he or she will be appointed in accordance with the provision of Articles 9d and 9e of the Treaty on European Union.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Dividing Israel: November 27,28 Annapolis Conference November 28, 2007Posted by Watchman in America, Dividing Israel, Europe, Islam, Israel.
Tony Webber recently had a question regarding the common date of November 27,28 in terms of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and I thought it significant. I’m having a hard time ignoring the coincidences regarding the woman (Israel) and the dragon (Europe/world). Revelation 12
This Day In History: – On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II makes perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages, giving rise to the Crusades by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land, with a cry of “Deus volt!” or “God wills it!”November 29, 1947 – “It seems to be more than just coincidence is that Annapolis is being held almost 60 years to the day — by the Jewish calendar — after the nations first voted to divide the land into Israeli and Palestinian states, on November 29, 1947, with U.N. Resolution 181. The Annapolis date was likely chosen for this reason.” -FulfilledProphecy
November 27-28, 1995 – Barcelona Euro-Mediterranean Conference or Common Strategy on the Mediterranean Region is held. This is the predecessor to the ENP which is supposed to “breathe new life” into what began on this date in 1995. Herb L. Peters brought to my attention how the ENP may be the confirmed covenant with many from Daniel 9:26,27 in his book, Recommendation 666.
November 27-28, 2006 – There was a meeting in Tampere, Finland which talked about, and/or confirmed the New ENP going into effect.
November 27-28, 2007 – Annapolis, Maryland meeting is planned to discuss how to bring about peace in the Middle East and a push to agreed terms with which to divide Israel. The US State Department confirmed the invitations had been sent out for next week’s conference, though no agenda has been set and no schedule has been released for the meetings, which the United States hope will kick-start negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The above shows a collection of times in history and right now where the Gentile world has involved itself with the land of Israel all on this date. Coincidence???
The Annapolis Conference looks like it will be the launching platform toward the Middle East peace process. Read the respective speeches by Olmert (Israel), Abbas (PLO) and Bush. This is just the trigger to bring about the future peace talks, but it is significant I believe.
We Are Not In Darkness!!! July 24, 2007Posted by Watchman in Christian, Europe, Fulfilling Prophecy, Israel.
This is a quick breakdown of most of my research to date regarding Bible prophecy and understanding the times in which we live. There is much more detail and background at the links provided. I have been set as a watchman and part of that is to share what I have been shown with those who have ears to hear. This is just regarding the timing of events according to history and Bible prophecy. My research on specific topics of Bible prophecy is broken down at the Watchman Bible study guide. There you can find why my research of Bible prophecy has led me to believe as I do regarding many topics. My perspective on Bible prophecy is that God says what He means and means what He says. The Bible is not up for personal interpretation, and I interpret scripture with scripture. For definition of symbology, I look no further than the Bible and try to look at scripture from the perspective written in and the original Greek and Hebrew meanings of words. This is the results to date.The timing of the chart below came from the mixture of the following “coincidences.” It is for these reasons I believe God has given us understanding to the month when the day of the Lord arrives and our catching away to Him, the point we are watching for, the coming of Christ. So far, since my discovery of this information and putting it together in the winter of ’05, I have only gotten confirming information that has strengthened an already amazing collection of information… (more…)
Dividing the Land of Israel July 17, 2007Posted by Watchman in America, Dividing Israel, Europe, Fulfilling Prophecy, Israel.
Bush to call for regional summit on Mideast peace process Haaretz (July 16, 2007) – U.S. President George W. will call for a regional conference on restarting the Middle East peace process during a special address Monday, a U.S. official said ahead of the speach. The U.S. president will also announce $190 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority, the official said. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would lead the peace conference, which would include representatives of Israel and neighbors in the region, said a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The speech to be given by the U.S. president will express a plan for “activism” on the part of the Bush administration, according to a senior Israeli political source who was briefed in advance about it. Bush’s tone is meant to express his approval of the formation of a new Palestinian Authority government under Salam Fayad, as well as the appointment of former British prime minister Tony Blair as the special envoy for the Quartet of Middle East peace negotiators. White House officials said Bush was planning to rally diplomatic and financial support for Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ government. Abbas controls only the West Bank after the Islamic militant group Hamas gained authority in Gaza in June. more… | Israel | Islam | America |
Does this dividing of the land of Israel fulfill Bible prophecy? Ezekiel 38,39 talks of a relative peace prior to an attack by Russia, Turkey, Iran and Libya among others. If the land is divided and a Palestinian state created, a temporary peace would go into effect. Israelis would be moved from their residence now to that land marked for Israel from this dividing and visa-versa. This sounds a lot like…
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
I believe the Lord going forth to fight these nations could be referring to the day of the Lord, which comes as sudden destruction from the Almighty. Isaiah 13:6-13 The ultimate end of this battle will be at Armageddon when Christ returns in glory and destroys the armies gathered there from the sixth bowl to do battle. America’s participation in this dividing of the land of Israel will come back to haunt us I believe.
Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
Recommendation 666 July 12, 2007Posted by Watchman in Europe, Fulfilling Prophecy.
Herb L. Peters was the author of the Fulfilled Prophecy website until just recently when he went to be with the Lord. His website is now being run by his daughter Holly and her husband Adam. Before he did however, God used him to expose the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in the news as he termed himself an end-time news reporter. He was always careful to focus on the news that was being ignored by the mainstream media that I’m finding is actually controlled by those bringing about global governance and who are running the world.
He wrote a book regarding the discoveries of his research titled Recommendation 666, which you can read for free online or order at Amazon for $14.95. The book is a report of events in European politics that have lined up extremely well with Bible prophecy as written and I believe this information has great merit and should be read and understood by those compelled to understand the times in which we live.
“My goal is to show how the prophecies prove that the Bible is the Word of God. Only God could have revealed today’s world events thousands of years in advance. It was prophecy that overcame my doubts and brought me to faith in Christ more than 30 years ago. And, watching these prophecies continue to be fulfilled today has caused me to marvel at God’s sovereignty over the nations and the power of His unseen hand. This has tremendously increased my faith in Jesus and helped prepare me to be ready for His return. My prayer is to share this experience with you.“
So what is Recommendation 666? I’ll let Herb explain in his own words.
“After praying, I turned to a document from the WEU Assembly Web site that I hadn’t had time to read. It was document #C/1720 – a report submitted by the Political Committee about the future role of the WEU.2 I began reading and underlining the parts that had to do with the 10 Brussels Treaty Powers and the office of High Representative.
I noticed a recommendation regarding the office Solana occupied. It had something to do with making the High Representative “sufficiently strong.” I wondered what this meant.
That’s when I saw it. It was in a paragraph under the heading “Introduction and Summary.” In the first sentence it read, “Nearly five months from the adoption of Assembly Recommendation 666 on the consequences of including certain functions of the WEU in the European Union….”
I almost fell from my chair. I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. It was that infamous number of prophecy, 666! And it had something to do with what had just occurred in the EU.
Apparently, the WEU Assembly was recommending that the already powerful offices that Solana holds be made even stronger. It said: Support proposals for the WEU Secretary-General and the CFSP High
Representative to preside over the PSC and civilian crisis-management
machinery and give him powers to convene the Council of the European
Union in the event of an emergency. These were all posts held by Solana. The PSC is the Political and Security Committee. This is one of the decision-making interim bodies that Solana had created in the Council of Europe headquarters. The WEU Assembly was recommending that Solana be made head over this agency also. Not only that, but it also was suggesting that Solana be given the powers to convene the Council of Europe in the event of an emergency. At first I didn’t understand the significance of this last part of the Recommendation. I knew it had to do with the chain of events that occurred under the French presidency in the last six months of 2000. The Recommendation was adopted June 5, 2000 – just before the beginning of the French presidency. So the French presidency was acting on Recommendation 666 when it announced its decision to make the WEU Assembly the Interim European Security and Defense Assembly. They were also following it when they decided to maintain the relationship between the 10 Brussels Treaty Powers. It is also possible the Recommendation led to the Solana Decision – the infamous decision to clampdown on the public’s right to military documents. It must have been behind the exclusion of those other 18 nations from the crisis management decision process as well.“
This was an official document of the WEU that gave emergency powers to the High Representative. A scripture came to mind.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name [G3686 - Authority]. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six .
So the number of the beast is the number of his authority, and the WEU’s document which gave emergency powers to the High Representative of the CSFP, head of the Political Security Committee (PSC), Secretary-General of the WEU, and Secretary-General of the Council of European Union was numbered 666! Coincidence? all those positions underlined above are currently held by one man, Javier Solana. That’s an awful lot of power given to him, and he is filling the role of “Mr. Europe.”
What’s more, he was a primary author of the 1995 EURO-MED Agreement meant to stabilize the Middle East and bring the nations that desired the funding to participate under the authority of the rules laid down by Europe. Then on January 1, 2007, the New European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) went into effect. It is a 7-year financial policy that opens trade with partners and sends funding from Europe as well. This is between Europe and the Medditerranean nations, including Israel. It also has a mid-term review due in 2010. Of the ENP it was said that it “breathes new life” into the EURO-MED agreement.
That this comes from Europe is telling because according to Bible prophecy, the man who will declare himself god in the rebuilt temple is the future prince of the Romans that destroyed Jerusalem in 70AD.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
If it was Rome that destroyed Jerusalem, then the future prince of those people would be the revived Roman Empire, the fourth kingdom. Remember the 1995 EURO-MED Agreement? The logo below is the official logo, coincidence?
So we have a man who has been given a lot of power over a 10-nation alliance born of the old Roman Empire. He has produced a 7-year confirmation of the 1995 covenant with many that has a mid-term review. What’s more, an EU animal welfare program is to be fully implemented by 2010. A reason to stop the daily sacrifice?
Given my research into other important Bible studies brought to light by John Zachary, Chuck Missler, Charlie, and Herb Peters, I can’t help but feel the timeline I got of future events is eerily correct. The implications of this can be more fully realized when looking at the data, but February 2009 is set up to be the abomination of desolation. For the details of these Bible studies, please read HIStory, Our Future: Pearls for the Bride.
