Rise of Antichrist

This is my Bible prophecy article. The reader can verify the dates and events, as well as view the New Testament Greek and Old Testament Hebrew alphabets, on the Internet. (Scriptural quotations are from the New International Version.)

Since Hebrew is written from right to left, the line containing Hebrew fonts may appear slightly fragmented to readers using the Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer browser.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of sin is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

Alphanumeric Calculations (Greek)

Using the alphanumeric system (1-9; 10-90; 100-900) of the 27-letter New Testament Greek alphabet:

*GOD (THEOS) = θΕΟΣ = 9+5+70+6 = 90 = [(9×9)+9]

*HOLY ONE (AGIOS) = ΑΓΙΟΣ = 1+3+10+70+6 = 90 = [(9×9)+9]

[Alphanumeric system of Greek based on “9”: There are 9 gifts and 9 fruits of the spirit; Jesus died on the Cross at the 9th hour; 9 months of pregnancy produce human life (made in the Image of God); Sarah was 90 when Isaac was born; a hanukki menorah holds 9 candles; Yom Kippur comes 9 days after Rosh Hashanah.]

*JESUS (IESOUS) = ΙΗΣΟΥΣ = 10+8+200+70+400+200 = 888

[“8” equals God’s no. of Life: 8 souls were saved on Noah’s Ark. “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them” (John 3:36).  “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).]

*EUROPE or EUROPA (EUROPIA) = ΕΥΡΟΠΙΑ = 5+400+100+70+80+10+1 = 666  (modern spelling)

[These days, Europi (instead of Europia) is used as it equals 665 (and not 666).]

*TITAN (TEITAN) = ΤΕΙΤΑΝ = 300+5+10+300+1+50 = 666  (ancient spelling)

*CHINA (KHEINA) = ΧΕΙΝΑ = 600+5+10+50+1 = 666  (ancient spelling)

[While the eagle, lion, and bear are the respective national symbols of America, Britain and Russia, the dragon denotes China. In Scripture, the dragon always represents Satan.]

*KISSINGER (KISSINGER) = ΚΗΣΣΙΝΓΕΡ = 90+8+200+200+10+50+3+5+100 = 666

[In this case, Kissinger begins with the antiquated-and-biblical Greek letter, Koppa (with an alphanumeric value of 90), instead of Kappa (with an alphanumeric value of 20).]

*JOHN PAUL (YIANNIS PAVLAKIS) = ΓΙΑΝΝΙΣ ΠΑΒΛΑΚΗΣ = (3+10+1+50+50+10+200)+(80+1+2+30+1+20+8+200) = 666  (modern spelling)

*LATIN MAN (LATEINOS) = ΛΑΤΕΙΝΟΣ = 30+1+300+5+10+50+70+200 = 666  (ancient spelling)

*ITALIAN CHURCH (ITALIKA EKKLESIA) = ΙΤΑΛΙΚΑ ΕΚΚΛΗΣΙΑ = (10+300+1+30+10+20+1)+(5+20+20+30+8+200+10+1) = 666

*THE LATIN BASILICA (E LATINA VASILISSA) = Η ΛΑΤΙΝΑ ΒΑΣΙΛΙΣΣΑ =  (8)+(30+1+300+10+50+1)+(2+1+200+10+30+10+6+6+1) = 666

*NEW YORK (NIU YIORGK) = ΝΙΥ ΓΙΟΡΓΚ = (50+10+400)+(3+10+70+100+3+20) = 666  (transliteration;  not translation)

*THE ELECTRICITY (O ELEKTRISMOS) = Ο ΗΛΕΚΤΡΙΣΜΟΣ = (70)+(8+30+5+20+300+100+10+6+40+70+6) = 665  (almost 666)

*VENUS (VENUS) = ΒΗΝΥΣ = 2+8+50+400+200 = 660

[Interestingly, Venus equals 660 in Greek even though she was the Roman (not Greek) goddess of love.]

*GENEVA (GENEVA) = ΓΕΝΕΒΑ 3+5+50+5+2+1 = 66

Alphanumeric Calculations (Hebrew)

Using the alphanumeric system (1-9; 10-90; 100-400) of the 22-letter Old Testament Hebrew alphabet:

*KISSINGER (Kof   Iod  Sin  Nun  Gimel  Gimel  Resh) = קישנגגר =
200+3+3+50+300+10+100 = 666

[Since ‘Kissinger’ is non-Semitic, it can be spelled with two Gimels assuming that the first Gimel is a weak aspirant and that the second is strong. This has been reconfirmed by a Hebrew-language scholar at Ohio State University.]

Alphanumeric Calculations (Latin)

While the New Testament Greek and Old Testament Hebrew alphabets are totally alphanumeric, only some letters in the Roman/Latin alphabet have alphanumeric equivalents.

In the Latin name and titles shown below, only the Roman/Latin letters that have alphanumeric values are underlined.

Using the alphanumeric system  (I=1; V=5; X=10; L=50; C=100; D=500; M=1,000) of Latin:

*JOHN PAUL THE SECOND (IOANNES PAULUS SECUNDO) = IOANNES PAVLVS SECVNDO = 1+5+50+5+100+5+500 = 666

*VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD (VICARIUS FILII DEI) = VICARIVS FILII DEI = 5+1+100+1+5+1+50+1+1+500+1 = 666

*LEADER OF THE CLERGY (DUX CLERI) = DVX  CLERI = 500+5+10+100+50+1 = 666

[Two of the pope’s official titles are Vicarius Filii Dei and Dux Cleri.]

Alphanumeric Calculations (English)

It’s entirely fathomable that Antichrist’s name would equal 666 in modern English because he rose to prominence in an English-speaking country. Also, English has become the international language of politics and commerce.

Observe the following:

Using the following alphanumeric system based on ‘six’: A=6, B=12, C=18, D=24,…(n+6),

*KISSINGER = 66+54+114+114+54+84+42+30+108 = 666

*COMPUTER = 18+90+78+96+126+120+30+108 = 666

*WITCHCRAFT = 138+54+120+18+48+18+108+6+36+120 = 666

*NEW YORK = (84+30+138)+(150+90+108+66) = 666

*CHRISTMAS = 18+48+108+54+114+120+78+6+114 = 660

*STAR TREK = (114+120+6+108)+(120+108+30+66) = 672 = (666+6) = {600+[(6+6)x6]}

Using the following alphanumeric system based on ‘nine’: A=9, B=18, C=27, D=36,…(n+9),

*KISSINGER = 99+81+171+171+81+126+63+45+162 = 999

[It’s widely known that “9” is the most cherished occultic number because Jesus died on the Cross at the 9th hour. In other words, “9” is synonymous with “Dead Christ.”]

[Kissinger’s birthday on May 27 (9+9+9) arrives 9 days after John Paul’s on May 18 (6+6+6). Also, ‘Kissinger’ consists of 9 letters in both Greek and English.]

Likewise:

Using the following alphanumeric system based on ‘nine’: A=9, B=18, C=27, D=36,…(n+9),

*LUCIFER = 108+189+27+81+54+45+162 = 666

Using the following alphanumeric system based on ‘six’: A=6, B=12, C=18, D=24,…(n+6),

*LUCIFER = 72+126+18+54+36+30+108 = 444

[In the Bible, “4” is associated with a period of trial: Moses and the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years and Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights in the desert. (Special Note: In the occult, “4” pertains to illumination and inner-wisdom.)]

The Yom Kippur War

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. As secretary of state, Dr. Henry Kissinger had advance knowledge of the impending Arab invasion of Israel on Oct. 6, 1973 (Yom Kippur). Nevertheless, he allowed Egypt and Syria to attack by informing them that the Nixon administration wanted to see the region “heat up” for a while. (In Walter Isaacson’s biography on Kissinger, he is quoted as having said, “The best result would be if Israel came out a little ahead but got bloodied in the process, and if the US stayed clean.”) Despite Israel’s repeated request for war supplies, Kissinger delayed transport of those materials until Israel was almost annihilated and began preparations to implement the Samson Option (nuclear retaliation). After the crisis receded, Kissinger’s resultant method of statesmanship became widely known and remembered as “shuttle diplomacy” during the first half of 1974. Ultimately, he accepted praise for the massive airlift by Israel and unfairly blamed the Pentagon for the delay.

(Special Note: 1973—the year of Kissinger’s 50th birthday—was interesting for several reasons: Abortion was legalized, The Legend of Hell House premiered, the film version of blasphemous Jesus Christ Superstar was released, and The Exorcist opened on Christmas Day. As the nation was rocked by the Watergate hearings, Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize after disengaging US troops in Vietnam. Likewise, Adolph Hitler was 50 when he started World War II by invading Poland on Sept. 1, 1939.)

The Unholy Trinity

Until proven wrong, this writer is convinced that Henry Kissinger is the Antichrist and that his partner, the False Prophet, will be a Roman Catholic pope (most likely a resurrected John Paul II). While the Holy Trinity consists of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the Unholy Trinity includes Satan, Antichrist, and False Prophet (as outlined in Revelation).

‘Kissinger’ Factoids

Is Henry A. Kissinger the Antichrist?

Evaluate the following:

*On May 27, 1923, Heinz (Henry) Alfred Kissinger was born in Furth (near Nuremberg), Germany. During this same year, the first Nazi Party rallies took place—and Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch failed—in Munich.

*Kissinger (666) was born in Europe (666) and resides in New York (666) City.

*Kissinger’s place of birth (Furth, Germany) is due north of Vatican City (seat of the False Prophet).

*In 1922 (a year prior to Kissinger’s birth), Nosferatu was released and preceded a decade of horror classics including Frankenstein, Dracula, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Mummy.

*In 1926 (3 years after Kissinger’s birth), US Route 66 was commissioned. (Why does Interstate 66 lead directly to Washington, DC, the nation’s capital?)

*In 1938, Kissinger (666) arrived in New York (666) City with his family while he was 15 years old. During this same year, the Great New England Hurricane killed 600 people in Long Island and southern New England. After German scientists (led by Werner Heisenberg) split the atom, the Nazis scoffed at Albert Einstein’s Judische physik or “Jewish physics.” (Four years earlier, Enrico Fermi’s experiments at the University of Rome allegedly resulted in nuclear fission, although he did not realize it at the time.)

(Special Note No. 1: Hitler’s ominous nuclear threat compelled Einstein to send his famous 1939 letter of warning to President Roosevelt which, in turn, led to the Manhattan Project. This precarious undertaking involved Jewish physicists Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer and Niels Bohr, among others. Why did the Nazis refer to their own atomic scientist, Werner Heisenberg, as a “white Jew”? What was the intended meaning?)

(Special Note No. 2: Due to fascist Italy’s racial laws, Fermi and his Jewish wife immigrated to America where he, too, contributed to the Manhattan Project.)

*In 1959, Frankie Avalon sang Venus (660) while Kissinger was 36 (6×6) years old.

*In 1968, Kissinger’s political career began as the newly-elected President Nixon’s national security adviser. During this same year, Rosemary’s Baby depicted Antichrist’s birth and the demented Night of the Living Dead opened. As the counterculture crowd disrupted the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Planet of the Apes promoted Charles Darwin’s false theory of evolution. (There is not a shred of proof to suggest that a given species can make the quantum leap to another!) Also, Sen. Kennedy was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan and Rev. King was killed by James Earl Ray. In Vietnam, the My Lai massacre eroded popular support for the ongoing war.

*In 1972, Nixon received accolades for normalizing Sino-American relations. Nevertheless, it was the secret trips by Kissinger (666) to China (666) that precipitated this historic event. (Did Nixon incur an inferiority complex in Kissinger’s presence? If not, why did he sometimes refer to the secretary of state as his “Jew boy”?)

*In Matthew 5:13, Jesus calls his followers “the salt of the earth.” On May 26, 1972 (the eve of Kissinger’s 49th birthday), the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) between Kissinger and the Soviet Union were ratified and resulted in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Was this a subtle attempt by Kissinger to project himself as the world’s “salt” or savior?

*Kissinger (666) betrayed Israel on Oct. 6 (emphasis: SIX), 1973.

*In 1973 (the year of Kissinger’s 50th birthday), the satanic rock group, Kiss (first four letters of ‘Kissinger’), was organized by Gene Chaim (aka Klein or Simmons) of Haifa, Israel.

*On August 8, 1974, Nixon resigned (due to the Watergate scandal) while the theme of demonic possession was continued in Beyond the Door. (Recall that The Exorcist opened on Christmas Day 1973.) As Kissinger was Nixon’s right-hand man, why did no one ever claim—or insinuate—that he may have played a role in the 1972 Watergate break-in and ensuing cover-up? Why was there an unwritten rule that Kissinger had immunity to any accusations?

*According to 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Antichrist is the “man of sin” (King James and English Revised Versions) and ‘sin’ is hidden in the middle of ‘Kissinger’: Kis sin ger.

*Both Hitler and Kissinger emerged from the sands of obscurity to become great politicians: Hitler was homeless in Vienna and wrote Mein Kampf in prison. Later, Kissinger arrived in America with his family as a teenage immigrant.

*On May 27, 1989 (Kissinger’s 66th birthday), President George H. W. Bush was received by John Paul for a private visit at Vatican City. Less than 6 months later, the Berlin Wall fell on Nov. 9, 1989—66 years after Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch failed in Munich on Nov. 9, 1923. (Why did “66” occur twice this year? This event clearly links Kissinger to the Vatican! Aside from Bush Sr.—a lifetime member of Yale’s occultic fraternity, the Skull & Bones Society—how many other politicians in Washington, DC, are aware of Kissinger’s identity as the Antichrist?)

(Incidentally, Nov. 9, 1989, was significant for two additional reasons. First, it marked the 50th anniversary of Hitler escaping an assassination attempt—at age 50—on Nov. 9, 1939. Second, it arrived 51 years after Kristallnacht or “Night of Broken Glass”—during which Jewish homes, shops, and synagogues were vandalized or destroyed throughout the Third Reich—on Nov. 9, 1938. Was this date chosen to commemorate Hitler’s victory over death and the destruction of Jewish property?)

The Satanic United Nations

The United Nations is headquartered in New York (666) City and Geneva (66). The UN Meditation Room allegedly houses a black altar dedicated to Lucifer. [Also, New York (666) City is the world’s financial capital and home to the Satanic Temple.]

Antichrist Defiles the Temple

According to Scripture, the 7-year Great Tribulation (one week of 7 years) will begin at (or near) the time Antichrist manufactures a 7-year security agreement or cold peace in the Middle East (Daniel 9:27). After the first 42 months (3 1/2 years), he will enter the soon-to-be-rebuilt third Temple in East Jerusalem (the Old City), halt animal sacrifices and grain offerings, and proclaim himself God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) while reminding Israel of the “salvation” that he provided during the Yom Kippur War. Subsequently, Antichrist survives an assassination attempt—by a member of the Hasidic, ultra-Orthodox, or Lubavitch sect—and stages a miraculous recovery (Revelation 13:3-8). Shortly thereafter, the False Prophet will command the world’s population to take the electronic Mark of the Beast in the right hand or forehead in order to buy or sell (Revelation 13:16-18). Nevertheless, all who worship Antichrist (or his Image) and/or take the 666 Mark of the Beast will go to Hell for eternity (Revelation14:9-10). Many who profess Jesus Christ and resist Antichrist will be killed by beheading (Revelation 20:4).

It must be categorically understood and remembered that Antichrist’s mission is not to destroy Israel and the world. Instead, he desperately seeks to be worshiped and adored, and to usurp the rightful place of Yeshua (Jesus) on King David’s throne during the soon-to-arrive Millennium. While much has been written about Antichrist’s global reign of terror (and justifiably so), the Great Tribulation is primarily a time when God declares war against His enemies on earth.

Israel’s False Messiah

The Hasidim (Hasidic or messianic Jews) expect Meshiach (Messiah) to arrive as a man who is elderly, established, intelligent, respected, Jewish, and a peacemaker. On the surface, at least, do these traits seem to describe Kissinger? How many Americans are aware that, even today, Kissinger is the No. 1 peace broker in the Middle East? Why does he routinely hold secret meetings with world leaders? (In The Trial of Henry Kissinger, author Christopher Hitchens describes Kissinger as a war criminal and murderer as a result of his covert activities in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and South America. This book is available at Barnes & Noble Bookstores.)

Too Old?

While in his 90s, is Kissinger too old to be Israel’s false messiah? Those who make that claim simply do not understand Hasidic culture. One may recall, for instance, the 1994 death of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson—at age 92—in Brooklyn, New York. Due to his long and fruitful life, many in the Hasidic community awaited Schneerson’s resurrection as the Messiah for up to several years—even though the elderly rabbi reportedly never stepped foot in the Holy Land.

Antichrist’s Political Comeback

According to Revelation 17:8, “The beast which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.”

The Verse cited above indicates that there will be an interruption or break in Antichrist’s political career. When Democratic front-runner, Jimmy Carter, won the 1976 presidential election, President Ford’s staff (including Secretary of State Henry Kissinger) had to vacate the White House shortly prior to President Carter’s inauguration on January 20, 1977. By adding 40 years to 1977, we arrive at 2017 (when Kissinger’s tenure as a politician will probably resume under future President Trump’s administration).

Pope John Paul II

Is it really possible that a resurrected John Paul II will be the False Prophet?

Consider the following:

*‘John Paul’ (‘Yiannis Pavlakis’) equals 666 in Greek (as noted earlier).

*’John Paul the Second’ (‘Ioannes Paulus Secundo’) equals 666 in Latin (as previously noted).

*Karol Wojtyla (future John Paul) was born on May 18, 1920, in Wadowice, Poland. On that same day, a partial solar eclipse darkened the sky over the Australia-Indian Ocean area. (Was this Lucifer’s method of artificially illuminating the side of the planet on which John Paul was born?)

*On Sept. 28, 1978, Pope John Paul I was murdered (poisoned) after serving as pope for only 33 days.

*On Oct. 6, 1979 (exactly 6 years after Kissinger betrayed Israel on Yom Kippur), John Paul became the first reigning pope to visit the White House where he was received by President Carter.

*On May 18, 1980 (John Paul’s 60th birthday), Mount St. Helens erupted in Washington state.

*On Oct. 27, 1986 (while 66 years old), John Paul attempted to unite the world’s conflicting religions during his interfaith World Day of Prayer in Assisi, Italy. He reportedly stated that all religions are equally valid and that all paths lead to God. (Six months prior to this event, the Chernobyl meltdown poisoned vast tracts of Russia, Europe, and Scandinavia on April 26, 1986.)

*On May 14, 1999 (Israel’s 51st birthday), John Paul kissed the anti-Jewish, anti-Christian Quran. (Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948. Also, it’s notable that 1999 was 66 years after Hitler rose to power in 1933.)

*On May 1, 2011, the Catholic Church beatified the late John Paul—66 years after Hitler committed suicide in Berlin on April 30, 1945.

*John Paul’s body was never buried; it rests in a mausoleum beneath the Latin basilica.

*In order for the False Prophet to effectively deceive the world’s population into worshiping Antichrist as God and taking the Mark of the Beast in the right hand or forehead, he will need enormous spiritual clout. This can only be accomplished with his own resurrection!

The Catholic Church

The heresies of the Catholic Church are well documented and include false sacraments, prayers to the saints, the veneration of images, salvation by works, and “forgiveness” of sins by a “priest.” (The Romans destroyed the second Temple in 70 AD—4 years after the Jewish uprising began in 66 AD. How can the priesthood exist without a Temple?) In addition, the false deification of Mary curiously parallels worship of the Egyptian/Babylonian sun goddess.

Clearly, Roman Catholics should ask themselves the following questions:

*At the end of World War II, why did the Vatican issue fake passports to Nazi war criminals as they were fleeing from justice?

*What did Pope Paul VI mean when he announced that “the smoke of Satan has entered the sanctuary”?

*Although the Catholic Church officially condemns homosexuality, the vast majority of its pedophilia cases are homosexual in nature. Why? Also, why are the offending clergymen transferred to new parishes where they can resume the cycle of abuse? (In The Keys of This Blood, Vatican insider Malachi Martin writes, “The cultic acts of satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the fallen Archangel’s rites.” In other words, the Vatican is rife with satanism!)

*Two of the pope’s official titles are Vicarius Filii Dei (Vicar of the Son of God) and Dux Cleri (Leader of the Clergy). Why do both equal 666 in the Church’s own language, Latin?

*Which Scriptures support the Church’s notion of apostolic succession and the existence of a so-called pope?

*If the pope is truly the “Holy Father,” why can’t he perform miracle healings as did Jesus and His apostles?

*Why doesn’t the Church warn its congregation about the Antichrist, False Prophet, Mark of the Beast, and Great Tribulation? Why is it seemingly allergic to the Book of Revelation?

*Why does the Bible contain 66 Books from Genesis to Revelation? Is this due to Roman Catholic canonization of Scripture?

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Recall that, while pretending to be Christian, John Paul attempted to unite Christianity with the world’s array of false religions while he was 66 years of age. Thirteen years later, the misguided (or demonically-inspired) pontiff insulted Jews and true Christians when he kissed the blasphemous Quran on Israel’s birthday.

The False Church

The Bible describes this ecumenical, apostate, and one-world church of the last days (which emanates from spiritual Babylon) as an immoral, unfaithful woman who seduces the masses with her lies and blasphemies (Revelation 17:1-6).

The Woman’s Address

As John was writing the Book of Revelation on Patmos, he encryptically disclosed the woman’s physical address as follows: “This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are the seven hills on which the woman sits” (Revelation 17:9). For millennia, Rome has been known as the City of Seven Hills. The 7 hills of Rome are Aventino, Celio, Campidoglio, Esquilino, Palatino, Quirinale, and Viminale!

The Prostitute’s Demise

In his writings, John continues, “The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire” (Revelation 17: 16-17).

Those who watched the excellent television documentary, Hitler and the Occult, will recall that—after his 1933 election as chancellor of Germany—Hitler murdered the astrologers and occultists who catapulted him to power so that he would not share fame, glory, or authority with anyone else.

Similarly—and for the same reasons—after Antichrist exalts himself as God in the Temple of the Most High, he (along with his minions, the ten rulers) will hate and destroy this false, global church that had honored and supported him as a great peacemaker during the first half of the Great Tribulation.

(Special Note: While many Bible scholars propose that the ten horns or ten kings of Revelation 17:12 represent ten nations in Europe, a more plausible interpretation may be that the entire globe will be divided into ten distinct regions of hegemony—such as North America, Europe, Central America, East Asia, South America, Africa, Russia/CIS, Australia/South Pacific, India/South Asia, and the Middle East.)

A New World Order/New Age Religion

During previous centuries, the Vatican horribly and brutally persecuted Protestants and Jews for such “crimes” as owning copies of the Bible and renouncing the papacy. Since the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s became entrenched, the Church has generally been on its best behavior—but only until the mainstream and apostate Protestant denominations return to Rome. It’s an open secret that the Vatican is leading the rush to install a global government and a one-world religion that will be inclusive for everyone except true Christians and observant Jews!

False Religious Cult

Similar to Freemasonry in many respects, Roman Catholicism is a false religious cult that deceives its flock with a clever mix of truth and lies. While many of its beliefs and doctrines are anchored in biblical fact, its lies are damning. Jesus informed Nicodemus that no one can enter God’s kingdom unless he (or she) has been spiritually reborn (John 3:3-6). Sadly, multitudes of Catholics risk an eternity in Hell because they falsely believe that they are saved by their good deeds and/or Church rituals, and that their sins are being forgiven by a “priest.”

War in the Middle East

It’s possible (but not certain) that the Russian-Islamic invasion of Israel (as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39) will transpire between May 14, 2020, and May 13, 2021, as Israel will be 72 [(6+6)x6] years old during this time frame. (Onerously, the Scriptures seem to hint that this prophetic onslaught may occur much sooner.) Nevertheless, God fulfilled His promise—miraculously and against astronomical odds—to resurrect His own nation, Israel, from the valley of dry bones (Ezekiel 37:1-14). After God supernaturally obliterates this invading army, the Israelis will need seven months to bury the bodies of the dead Russian and Islamist soldiers (Ezekiel 39:12-13).

As the civil war in Syria intensifies, the Middle East is approaching its first regional conflagration since the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Bashar al-Assad’s regime is clearly under siege as it continues to import military hardware from Russia. It should be noted that Assad and Putin are staunch allies. Furthermore, Russian troops must traverse Syria and ascend the Golan Heights in order to launch a ground war against Israel.

As America’s foreign policy pivots toward Asia (and the containment of Kissinger’s progeny, China), its gradual withdrawal from the greater Middle East has resulted in a growing consensus among the USA’s regional allies (specifically: Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Gulf states, and Turkey) that they are being abandoned. Needless to say, Russia and Iran are in the process of filling this consequential power vacuum. The Russian military buildup in western Syria includes fighter jets, helicopters, tanks, armored personnel carriers, and other materiel. Also, Russia’s warships in the Caspian Sea have launched missile attacks against all rebel targets in Syria (including the supposedly-moderate Free Syrian Army which is supported by America).

In the wake of Putin’s entry into Syria to restore order and protect Russia’s naval base on Syria’s Mediterranean coast, will his forces ultimately invade Israel to seize the strategic and warm-water port of Eilat on the Red Sea?

At the time of this writing, the war in Syria involves—in one capacity or another—eight other countries: Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Russia, Iran, Turkey, and the USA. (Also, a total of nine geographically-diverse coalition nations have launched airstrikes against ISIS and al-Qaida in Iraq and Syria.) More than a year ago and near Damascus, Israel conducted airstrikes against an Iranian convoy of missiles that were en route to Hezbollah in southern Lebanon. (Iran and Hezbollah are both Shiite and closely aligned with Assad’s Alawite sect.) In addition, Israel has warned Russia that it will target any of its sophisticated, long-range missiles that are bound for Assad’s military. Since the Obama administration is now providing direct military aid to the Syrian rebels (and hopefully not al-Qaida or ISIS in the process), Putin may eventually contemplate retaliation by invading America’s ally, Israel. (The US and Russia are engaged in a proxy war for the first time since the 1980s in Afghanistan. Is the Cold War truly over?) Certainly, Ezekiel’s war looms on the horizon!  Whether it occurs before or after Israel bombs Iran’s nuclear installations remains to be seen.

UFOs and Bible Prophecy

What if, shortly after true Christians have been physically transported to the New Jerusalem in the Rapture (1 Corinthians 15:50-58), God allows demonic entities to stage a paranormal UFO landing in front of the news cameras? What if—sequentially and insidiously—a resurrected John Paul descends from the alleged spacecraft and calmly informs the earth’s inhabitants that he and Kissinger are descendants of an ancient-alien race that planted life on earth thousands or millions of years ago, and that their mission is to assist us with the next phase of our planetary evolution using electronic technology? If this idea seems far-fetched, why has the viewing public been inundated with flying-saucer and UFO films since the UN’s inception in 1945?

Undoubtedly, the laughable and unscientific theory of ancient aliens or astronauts was conceived in Erich Von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods and perpetrated in the History Channel’s recent Ancient Aliens series. Four years after Chariots of the Gods was originally published in 1968, Dr. Clifford Wilson wrote his rebuttal, Crash Go the Chariots. Why doesn’t the History Channel at least mention it?

Unfortunately for the ancient-alien advocates, the concept of interstellar or intergalactic space flight is incongruous with Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity—as detailed below:

Special Theory. According to Einstein’s special theory, no object (including a subatomic particle) with a rest mass greater than zero can achieve the speed of light: approx. 186,000 miles per second. (Since light exhibits both particle and wave properties, a particle of light—or photon—can reach this prohibitive speed. Nevertheless, a photon has a rest mass of zero.) That is to say, even if a large, heavy, and bulky spaceship could attain such an incredible velocity, it would require millions of years (ie, light years) to reach earth. (As a testament to the vastness of the universe, many “stars” that are visible during a clear night do not exist; they imploded eons ago and we are now receiving their light.)

General Theory. In accordance with Einstein’s general theory, a large gravitational mass distorts the “fabric” of time-space in the same manner that a heavy bowling ball warps a trampoline (for lack of a better analogy). Since there are presumably millions of suns, planets and black holes in the universe, there is an infinite number of warps or curvatures in this invisible tapestry. For this reason, theoretical physicists postulate that if a spacecraft departs a given planet on a seemingly linear or straight-line trajectory (perpendicular to its plane of departure), it may return to its planet of origin millions of years later in a net “boomerang” effect!

More recently, some science-fiction writers and astronomers have imagined Jupiter’s moon, Europa (666), and Saturn’s moon, Titan (666), to be possible bases from which aliens can explore the solar system. How can any sober scientist entertain the possibility that these two barren rocks—so incredibly distant from the sun—could support life as we know it? If either moon has an atmosphere, it would almost certainly be composed of toxic gases.

What are the origins of the names ‘Europa’ and ‘Titan’? In Greek mythology, Zeus—the god of the sky—incarnated himself as a bull to seduce the Phoenician princess, Europa (666), and take her to Crete. On the back of a European Currency Unit or euro, one can readily observe the image of Europa riding Zeus, the bull. In turn, the Titan(666)s were the elder gods of pagan Greece who were overthrown by Zeus and the Olympian gods. (Why are all planets, moons, and stars—as well as the reactor fuels uranium and plutonium—named after ancient Roman or Greek deities?)

Are flying saucers or UFOs really bona-fide, nuts-and-bolts spacecraft that carry extraterrestrials from distant planets or galaxies to earth? Or are they paranormal phenomena from the spirit world whose malicious and lethal intent is to deceive mankind about its intrinsic, fundamental role in the grand design of creation?

According to 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12, in the last days God will give the unbelieving hordes over to a great delusion so that they will believe a lie. Although the Bible does not reveal the nature of this grandiose deception, we are free to speculate. We certainly do know that, in the near future, hundreds of millions of new Christians—in every tongue, tribe, and nation—who were converted by the 144,000 Jewish witnesses (Revelation 7:3-8) during the Great Tribulation, will be despised and martyred for their unwavering faith in Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:4).

The old dictum that “people believe what they want to believe” is as true today as ever. Around the world, those of a lost and biblically-illiterate generation are desperately seeking reassurance that they will not have to stand before God during the Great White Throne Judgment.

Moreover, an apparent encounter with extraterrestrials from another world would eclipse all of mankind’s previous discoveries. Irrefutably, both God and the Devil are acutely aware that such an event would seal the hearts and minds of unregenerate souls against the truth of Scripture—until they are judged by God according to their deeds (as their names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life).

Financial Apocalypse

According to the US Debt Clock (www.usdebtclock.org), America’s public debt is more than $19 trillion and growing at a rate that exceeds $1 billion a day.

As a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), these are the 2015 public (government) debts of the following nations:

*Japan = 229.2%

*Greece = 176.9%

*Italy = 132.7%

*USA = 104.2%

*Spain = 99.2%

*France = 96.1%

*Ireland = 93.8%

*Canada = 91.5%

*UK (England, Scotland, Wales, and N. Ire.) = 89.2%

*Germany = 71.2%

*Finland = 63.1%

*China = 43.9%

Numerous reports on CNBC.com have identified several existential threats or menaces to the American and global economies. Among them are a premature hike of interest rates by the US Federal Reserve, China’s total debt crisis, the continued slowing of the global economy, massive corporate debt, the recent ‘Brexit,’ declining corporate profits, and the unresolved debt crisis in Europe. Indeed, the global economy—and its financial underpinnings—are skating on thin ice.

Regarding China’s total debt (which includes government, household, and corporate borrowing), it’s standing at 282.0 percent of GDP. In comparison, the USA’s total debt equals 269.0 percent of GDP. (Special Note: China and Japan hold approximately $1.3 trillion and $1.1 trillion of America’s debt, respectively. Also, a staggering $6.2 trillion of the USA’s Treasury obligations are held by foreigners.)

In reality, North America, Europe, China, and Japan are racing toward a financial apocalypse that will reverberate around the globe. In the aftermath of this coming meltdown and amid a sustained recession or depression, will the hungry masses gladly line up to accept the Mark? In essence, this diabolical system represents Satan’s counterfeit and temporary “salvation” in the form of food, clothing, and shelter—but at tremendous expense to one’s eternal soul. The forces of darkness (who are in almost total control of the fashion and entertainment industries) realize that if they can dupe this terminal generation into taking ugly, grotesque markings (tattoos) or pieces of metal (body piercings) in their skin, they are merely one step away from receiving the soul-damning Mark of the Beast.

The world’s love affair with paranormal activity (including Harry Potter), black clothing, degenerate music, sexual immorality, and mind-altering drugs will soon culminate in the Great Tribulation and Armageddon.

America Under Judgment

In The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery that Holds the Secret of America’s Future, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn reveals in astonishing detail how the terrorist events of 9/11 and the 2008 financial crisis closely mirror God’s judgments against ancient Israel for its disobedience. According to Cahn, God dispenses judgments in 7-year intervals as he accurately observes that the 2008 financial meltdown occurred seven years after 9/11. Remarkably, six days after 9/11, the DJIA lost 7% of its value on Sept. 17, 2001. Exactly 7 years later (on the Hebrew calendar) and during the financial debacle, the DJIA again incurred a 7% loss when it dropped 777 points on Sept. 29, 2008. Note that Sept. 17, 2001, and Sept. 29, 2008, are the same Hebrew-calendar day: Elul 29.

Elul 29

Since 2015 arrived seven years after the 2008 financial crisis, why didn’t a major (or minor) event occur on Sept. 13 (Elul 29), 2015? First, God is autonomous and not restricted by dates or numbers. Second, Sept. 13, 2015, fell on a Sunday (when the USA’s financial markets were closed). Thirdly, although 2015 is a year of the Shemitah (a fall, collapse, or judgment), only two years (instead of the complete seven) will elapse between 2015 and 2017 (when the 7-year Great Tribulation will almost certainly begin). Instead of ridiculing Cahn’s theory, we should be grateful for the additional two years that God has awarded us.

Notably, September 20, 2017, will be Elul 29, 5777, on the Jewish calendar. Is it possible that an apocalyptic event will decimate the global financial system on this upcoming date? (This discussion will be continued in the Closing Comments section.)

Satanism at the License Bureau

If one logs onto the Arizona Department of Transportation’s official website (azdot.gov) and, in sequence, clicks on the following phrases—‘Motor Vehicles,’ ‘Driver License Information,’ and ‘Proof of Identification, Age and Authorized Presence’—he will observe that two of the statutes requiring an Arizona driver’s license applicant to provide his Social Security number (SSN) are 666 (a) and 13 (A). As these are United States Code (USC) ordinances, they are federal in their scope.

Certainly, anyone who is familiar with the Book of Revelation is aware that “666” is the Antichrist’s number (Revelation 13:18).

In turn, “13” is a primary occultic number because Jesus and the twelve apostles comprised 13 men including Judas, the traitor. (Also, many Bible scholars believe that Antichrist is descended from the 13th and lost tribe of Dan.)

Any Christian who has knowledge of these two satanic ordinances and furnishes his SSN to the Department of Transportation in Arizona or another state may be guilty of an unforgivable offense—as if he has taken the 666 Mark of the Beast. To place this matter in a proper perspective, God will not tolerate any compromises by His own people whom He redeemed at an extremely-high price.

Anti-Christian Bias in Arizona

Arizona State University (ASU) does little to conceal its contempt and disdain for Christianity. On the first page of ASU’s official website (www.asu.edu), the ‘S’ at the center of ‘ASU’ is a thinly-disguised yin-yang symbol with a distinctly yellow yin and an equally yellow yang. This is clearly evidenced by its counterclockwise rotation (opposite the direction of its tails) which is the same pattern of rotation as displayed by Hitler’s Babylonian sun wheel (swastika). If one carefully views ASU’s yin-yang emblem, he will confirm that it has already rotated by several degrees counterclockwise.

Since America’s heritage is overwhelmingly Christian, why does ASU—a state university that receives government funds—officially endorse a false religion (Taoism) in open defiance of the First Amendment (which separates religion and government)?

The End of Days?

On April 30, 1966, Anton LaVey founded the Church of Satan in San Francisco—exactly 21 (7+7+7) years after Hitler committed suicide in Berlin. (Also, Hitler would have been 77 at this time.) During this same year, Star Trek premiered. (Was the half-human Mr. Spock—with pointed ears, infinite wisdom, and supernatural/telepathic powers—Gene Roddenberry’s version of the Antichrist?)

A year later—on June 5, 1967—and after several weeks of provocation by the Arabs, Israel conducted preemptive airstrikes against Egyptian positions in the Sinai peninsula. This military action, in turn, ignited the Six-Day War between Israel and Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. (Algeria, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia also contributed troops and arms to the Egyptian, Syrian, and Jordanian fronts while the Soviets provided weapons to Israel’s Arab foes.) During this relatively brief conflict, Israel annexed East Jerusalem (including the Temple Mount), the West Bank, Gaza, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai. (Special Note: Four blood moons—or a lunar tetrad—occurred during 1967 and 1968.)

As the times of the Goyim or “Gentiles” accelerated their close (Luke 21:24), God began to withdraw His supernatural restraint of evil. (Only now would God allow Antichrist to manifest himself in the public domain.)

Anyone who has clear memories of the mid- to late-1960s will attest to the precipitous, almost-overnight paradigm shift that occurred in the entertainment industry as family-friendly sequels—including Lassie, Family Affair, My Three Sons, Green Acres, Lost in Space, Bonanza, and The High Chaparral—began yielding to foul language, extreme violence, pornography, flesh-eating ghouls, and horrid scenes of demonism. As America was bombarded by waves of violent crime (including the highly-publicized 1969 Charles Manson murders), drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, junk music and occultism, the seismic shift in cultural and moral values led to the term “generation gap” during this tumultuous era. While many today denigrate—and laugh at—Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s “communist witch hunts” and the Red Scare of the 1950s and early-1960s, who were the individuals responsible for this unprecedented transformation, and who were their sponsors? What was the overall agenda of these self-proclaimed “agents of change”? More importantly, why did a generation of Americans willingly and voluntarily reject good and embrace evil? Why did the anti-Vietnam War protests of the late-1960s suddenly morph into a spiritual rebellion against marriage, the traditional family structure, the “demeaning” role of women in society, sexual mores, and the Bible?

The satanically-inspired spirit of the mid- to late-1960s and 1970s can best be epitomized by the lyrics of the 1971 rock song, Won’t Get Fooled Again:

“We’ll be marching in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worship will be gone….I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution, take a vow for the new revolution; smile and grin at the change all around. Pick up my guitar and play, just like yesterday,  when I get [sic] on my knees and pray. We won’t get fooled again!”

What is the Bible’s response?

“Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles. The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain” (Psalm 2:1-6).

At the present time, America resembles a drunken elephant that is attempting to navigate itself through the narrow aisles of a shop that sells fine crystal ware. Since Bush Jr. (another lifelong member of Yale’s nefarious Skull & Bones Society) stole the 2000 presidential election from Al Gore, America’s disastrous foreign policy in the Middle East has resulted in raging civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Yemen. While it was Bush’s error to invade Iraq, Obama exacerbated the ongoing dilemma by almost totally withdrawing US troops from that nation in 2011. Perversely, a real possibility exists that US servicemen may have to fight alongside Iranian forces against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.

On the domestic front—and despite a few positive and reassuring news articles in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The Economist—the USA’s economy is in shambles. As the level of outstanding student-loan debt has exceeded $1.3 trillion, college tuition is soaring while most graduates since the Great Recession live with their parents, are underemployed, and/or seek roommates. While America’s equity is being stripped away in the global economy, scams of all types—both legal and illegal—continue to proliferate.

Although the official unemployment rate appears to be declining, the vast majority of new positions are temporary, part-time, or low-wage jobs in the retail and service sectors. Meanwhile, the only option for effectively reducing the nation’s debt (as a percentage of GDP) is to grow the economy at a more rapid pace. How can this be achieved as high-paying careers in manufacturing are being shipped overseas by greedy Republican CEOs? (Kissinger’s highly-secretive consulting firm, Kissinger Associates, has aided in the mass exodus of these positions.) Incredibly, up to 100 million working-age Americans are out of the work force. (According to a recent Harris Poll, 59 percent of Americans who have been unemployed for two years or longer have abandoned their search for a job.) Also, the median household income, adjusted for inflation, has dropped 7 percent since 2000.

The average American—whose brain has been burned out by decades of drugs, cheap sex, faded jeans, materialism, rock ‘n’ roll, feminism, and the occult—is morally adrift and reeling from the blows of Satan. With a mind that is warped and convoluted, his (or her) marriage has failed and his (or her) children are being raised as pagan barbarians. Furthermore, he (or she) believes the fiction that humans are descended from monkeys or apes, and the falsehood that the Bible is merely another mythological text. (Therefore, one may live as he chooses since Hell purportedly does not exist.) In the realm of personal finance, the typical American continues to carry a wallet that is filled with credit cards and to live beyond his (or her) means as memories of the financial crisis have begun to fade. (Shockingly, 62 percent of Americans have less than $1,000 saved for retirement!)

The typical American female is often confused, angry, unfeminine, and generally discontent with her own life. She makes scant effort to appear beautiful or feminine in order to attract a decent partner. As her mother was a radical feminist during the 1970s, it’s little wonder that she (and her mother) wear clothes that were seemingly picked out of a trash dumpster. For these reasons, droves of American males are searching for a bride in the former USSR and other international locales.

In the meantime, leaders of conservative Middle Eastern societies loathe America’s pop “culture” which exports all manner of filth, decadence, and debauchery around the world. Is it surprising that the USA is so vehemently resented or hated in that region? Why should the peoples of the Middle East wish to emulate post-modern Western cultures in which women and girls dress immodestly (or provocatively) in public, and every day is Halloween?

Closing Comments

This commentator can envision the End more clearly now. Due to the ObamaCare fiasco (with huge hikes in premiums and deductibles for the middle class) and President Obama’s weak foreign policy, it’s likely that Republican front-runner, Donald Trump, will win the White House in 2016. (In fairness to Obama, he has inherited a daunting, intractable situation of realpolitik on behalf of his predecessor, George W. Bush.) Since Kissinger is Republican, it’s implausible that he will be appointed as a special peace envoy to the Middle East unless there is a Republican president. If Kissinger engineers his 7-year power play in the Middle East during 2017 (which would mark the beginning of the 7-year Great Tribulation), this would be 50 years after Israel reclaimed East Jerusalem (including the Temple Mount) during the 1967 Six-Day War and 100 years after the Balfour Declaration called for a Jewish homeland in Palestine during 1917. (Similarly and centennially, the Berlin Wall fell in 1989—100 years after Hitler was born in 1889.)

(Special Note No. 1:  2017 is the year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar and “7” can be associated with God’s judgment and wrath: There are 7 Seal, 7 Trumpet, and 7 Vial judgments. Also, the Babylonian Captivity endured for 70 years and 7 years of famine followed 7 years of abundance in Egypt.)

(Special Note No. 2:  While 2017 is clearly related to “7” on the Jewish calendar, it will arrive 120 years after Theodor Herzl convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in 1897. Likewise, Noah preached to the antediluvians for 120 years and then God executed judgment in the form of the Great Flood.)

(Special Note No. 3: On the Gregorian calendar, the year 5777 is from Oct. 3, 2016, to September 20, 2017. Therefore, it seems logical to assume that the Great Tribulation will begin during this interval of time.)

(Special Note No. 4: 2017 will arrive 500—or 50×10—years after the Protestant Reformation began in 1517. Since “50” is the Jubilee number of Redemption, will the Rapture occur ten Jubilees after Martin Luther first questioned the Catholic Church’s doctrines and authority?)

On April 14, 2015, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu received an interesting—and potentially insidious—telephone call from President Putin. In this disturbing and alarming communication, Putin informed Netanyahu that his planned delivery of highly-advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran was for “purely defensive” purposes and would not further destabilize the Middle East. (Was the intent of this message to reassure, deceive, or antagonize the prime minister and members of his Likud Party?) Needless to say, Netanyahu expressed “grave concerns” that this action would continue to embolden Iran (as has the lifting of sanctions due to the pending nuclear agreement between Iran and the West).

As discussed earlier, the Prophet Ezekiel predicted—thousands of years prior to the births of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Mohammed—that Rosh (Rossiya or “Russia”), Persia (Iran), Libya, and several other nations would launch an assault against Israel “like a cloud that covers the land” (Ezekiel 38:16). Surely, the prophetic sand is shifting under our feet! America’s 2003 invasion of Iraq, and the ill-fated  2011  Arab Spring, have made what was previously unthinkable quite plausible.

The crisis in Ukraine was indirectly relevant to Bible prophecy. An increasingly-belligerent Putin viewed the West’s response to his annexation of Crimea—and incursions into eastern Ukraine—as a litmus test of whether he could expand Russia’s sphere of influence much further (as far as Syria and, eventually, Israel). (Having proposed renaming the Russian city of Volgograd as ‘Stalingrad’—in Soviet parlance—this former KGB politico and ardent communist has clarified that he is not a champion of democracy or human rights.) As the specter of a major war hovers ominously over the Holy Land, Western resolve will be severely tested in the months and years ahead.

As mentioned earlier, Israel was regenerated on May 14, 1948, and—therefore—turned 66 on May 14, 2014. A few months later, she became embroiled in a 50-day war with Hamas in Gaza. According to the September 1, 2014, Internet edition of BBC News and the September 22, 2014, Internet edition of the Los Angeles Times, Israel’s death toll was 66 soldiers and 6 civilians. (Special Note: Four blood moons—or a lunar tetrad—transpired during 2014 and 2015.)

A Special Section: Same-Sex Marriage

On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court overturned approximately 2,000 years of Christian belief and tradition by legalizing same-sex marriage.

While it’s not the objective of this author to judge others (as God could throw the Book at him if He so desired), all homosexuals (both male and female) should be aware of the Bible’s stance on sexual immorality—as proclaimed by the following Verses:

“Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts [occultism], the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood” (Revelation 22:15).

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body” (1 Corinthians 6:18).

“Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts [occultism], their sexual immorality or their thefts” (Revelation 9:21).

“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error” (Romans 1:26).

“In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire” (Jude 1:7).

“But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted” (1 Timothy 1:8-11).

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” (2 Timothy 4:3).

“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22).

“If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads” (Leviticus 20:13).

When God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone, He made His position on homosexuality clear for time and eternity. Alarmingly and sadly, Romans 1:26 (quoted above) implies that most homosexuals are in this predicament because God is finished with them. In other words, homosexuality is not the cause of their damnation; instead, sexual immorality is a symptom of their condemnation.

In a tiny minority of these cases, is it possible for an individual to be born with same-sex attractions? Probably. As we live in a fallen and imperfect world, humans (and animals) can be born with a wide variety of defects and abnormalities. On the other hand, that person has the option of remaining celibate and attempting to live a normal life that is compatible with Scripture.

On the positive side, sexual immorality is not the unpardonable sin (blasphemy against the Holy Spirit). Thankfully, God sent his Son to save and not condemn the world (John 3:17). Nevertheless, we are to pursue our own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).
