The Kingdoms

There are 2 kingdoms, Israel and Judah:

2 Samuel 3:10 “To translate the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beer–sheba.”

The northern kingdom was called “Israel” and was taken away:

1 Kings 11:31 “And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee:”

1 Kings 11:37-39 “And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all that thy soul desireth, and shalt be king over Israel. 38 And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee. 39 And I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not for ever.”

The Kingdom of Israel to cease:

Hosea 1:4 “And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.”

The Kingdom of the line of Judah cursed:

Jeremiah 22:28-30 “Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not? 29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD. 30 Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.”

So the Kingdoms of Israel (750 BC) and Judah (606 BC) both taken by the Gentiles:

Lamentations 2:9 “Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.”

The vision of the time of the reigning Gentile Kingdoms was given to the King of Babylon and interpreted by Daniel:

Daniel 2:44-45 “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”

Jesus was born to be the King of the Jews:

Matthew 2:2 “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Satan alleged that the power and glory of the world’s kingdoms had been delivered to him:

Luke 4:5-6 “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.”

Jesus said he would restore the kingdom of Israel:

Luke 22:30 “That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

His kingdom would include Gentiles:

John 10:16 “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”

Matthew 8:11-12 “And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

John 11:51-52 “And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; 52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.”

The disciples asked him when:

Acts 1:6 “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”

Jesus said he was King of the Jews, but  his kingdom was not yet of this world:

Mark 15:2 “And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.”

John 18:33-34 “Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews? 34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?”

John 18:35-37 “Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? 36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”

The Jews rejected their King, choosing instead Caesar and Barabbas:

John 19:14-15 “And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! 15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cæsar.”

Matthew 27:20-23 “But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. 22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. 23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.”

John 18:39-40 “But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.”

The Jews accepted the guilt:

Matthew 27:25 “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.”

Jesus will rule over the Jews with fury poured out:

Ezekiel 20:33-38 “¶ As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: 34 And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. 35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. 36 Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. 37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: 38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.”

Psalms 65:5 “By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:”

And over the Gentiles:

Psalms 98:2-3 “The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. 3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.”

Isaiah 52:9-10 “¶ Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. 10 The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.”

Acts 13:46-47 “Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.”

Isaiah 49:5-7 “¶ And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength. 6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. 7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.”

The Kingdoms (plural) of this world all belong to Jesus Christ:

Revelation 11:15 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”

Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 ¶ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

And we shall reign with him forever:

Daniel 7:27 “And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”

Revelation 1:5-7 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”

And not just on Earth, but over the entire universe:

Colossians 1:16-20 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”

Ephesians 1:20-23 “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”

And Christ’s enemies shall perish:

Luke 19:27 “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.”

Psalms 2:9-12 “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. 10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.”

Christ Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords:

Acts 5:31 “Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.”

Galatians 6:15-16 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”

1 Timothy 6:14-16 “That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.”

Revelation 17:14 “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.”

Leave the Jews alone

If something is wrong in the world it doesn’t mean you are entitled to fix it. The need is not the call.

” And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.” 2 Chronicles 26:18

Some nuts presume the devil can be shooed away with noise and indignant commands like an unwanted stray. This backfires. Sin invited the devil in to begin with, and unrepentant and self-willed attempts to drive him out only grants him a greater foothold.

” Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.” Jude 1:8-9

The devil may have fallen, but he remains an anointed cherub.

“Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28:14-15

” For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” Romans 11:29

Samuel anointed David when the kingdom was taken away from King Saul, yet David refused to take the crown away his successor by killing him because he too was the Lord’s anointed.

” And David said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the LORD’S anointed, and be guiltless? David said furthermore, As the LORD liveth, the LORD shall smite him; or his day shall come to die; or he shall descend into battle, and perish. The LORD forbid that I should stretch forth mine hand against the LORD’S anointed: but, I pray thee, take thou now the spear that is at his bolster, and the cruse of water, and let us go.” 1 Samuel 26:9-11

Although the eventual death of King Saul made his own kingdom secure, yet David himself took vengeance on the one who killed Saul because he had harmed the Lord’s anointed.

” And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD’S anointed? And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died. And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD’S anointed.” 2 Samuel 1:14-16

One must be guiltless and in God’s mercy to prevail against enemies with plausible claims to the rights that we would sack. Otherwise, our presumption is sin, and God will let our enemies escape to abase our pride.

Spiritual warfare is winning the case for our victory in the courts of heaven first so that then success on earth will follow. It entails repentance, setting aside pride, pleading the blood of Christ for forgiveness and mercy, purging ourselves of sin, yielding our will to God’s perfect will, pure motives, doing first things first, doing right, patience, perseverance, intercessions, fasting, joining hands, and whatever else the Holy Spirit enjoins for us to do.

” For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

” Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

” Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” Acts 12:5

Like the devil, the Jews before they fell occupied the first position. Their talents were designed to glorify God, but they abused them. Like the devil, the Jews have not lost any of their endowed blessings, but retain them … with curses and corruption.

” Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.” Exodus 36:1

” But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18

” If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.” Malachi 2:2-3

God’s plan eventually comes around full circle. One day the devil will be destroyed and all the blessings of his kingdom will be robbed and redeployed by Jesus Christ to the glory of God, as originally intended. In the meantime, the devil is a useful tool for wrath and temptation, accomplishing God’s mysterious purposes of trial, purification, and testing of the children of God. Likewise with the Jew. Their 12 tribes were endowed with destructive powers that have been used in God’s providence for the polishing of the Christian nations of Europe to the glory of God by Jesus Christ.

” And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” Genesis 50:18-20

Don’t blame the Jews for exploiting our weaknesses, that’s their job: nation wrecking: doing God service by bringing us low on account of our own sins. Our cure is not found in the futility of screaming rebukes at blind Jews for their greed and corruption, but rather our national repentance and a revival of true Bible-Christianity.

” And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people; He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” 1 Chronicles 16:20-22

” The portion of Jacob is not like them; for he is the former of all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the LORD of hosts is his name. Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms; And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider; With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid; I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.” Jeremiah 51:19-23

There is a time and place for asking the Jews to leave a nation (with a corresponding reduction in the nation’s wealth and power), but that’s not easy to accomplish in a just manner without incurring condemnation before God.

” All that found them have devoured them: and their adversaries said, We offend not, because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of justice, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers.” Jeremiah 50:7

” Israel was holiness unto the LORD, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 2:3

” But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress. Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;” Obadiah 1:12-13

The evangelical superstition of treating the Jews like a luck rabbit’s foot –  bless them and you will be blessed back – is, of course, ridiculous idolatry. The “I will bless them that bless thee” promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 applies to Gentiles who are in Jesus Christ:

” That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:14

” Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” Revelation 3:9

Regarding the nation of Israel the best advice to the nations is this: mind your own knitting and leave them alone because they are God’s problem, not ours:

” And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.” Genesis 31:24

” And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all. But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?” Numbers 23:25-26

” And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3

National sin invites the wrath of God, and he has loosed the instruments of his wrath – the devils and the Jews – against us. Cursing them is futile – they are permitted by God to do what they do.

” Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.” Isaiah 54:16

” Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Deuteronomy 9:5

Repentance, returning to Jesus Christ, and to the Bible, that is the answer for us one and all.

” We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.” Isaiah 59:11-15

But that isn’t going to happen, and so the Tribulation is about to be unleashed. During that time Israel will be crucified as a nation. But a handful of rare Jews will survive, a few meek survivors that God will pity, as King David pitied lame Mephibosheth (2 Sam 9:10-13) and as King Evil-Merodach pitied blind Jehoiachin (2 Kings 25:27-30).

” Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7

” When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.” Psalms 76:9

” And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.” Zechariah 9:16

” Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.” Zechariah 8:7-8

” In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” Micah 4:6-7

” Thus saith the LORD; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.” Nahum 1:12

” I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD. The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.” Zephaniah 3:12-13

Endtimes have arrived; “William V” = 666

I already wrote about how the next British monarch’s name could add up to 666 in this post.

If we count from King George III (reigned 1760-1820) to the present monarch Elizabeth II, adding up all the English monarch’s names and numerals we get 582, which is just 84 short of 666.

The reason why we start at King George III is because he went insane (from porphyria) and lost the American Empire – and this corresponds to Daniel’s prophecy:

” The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.” Daniel 7:4

The kingdoms that followed after Babylon (Gold) were Persia (Silver), Greece (Brass), and Rome (Iron) (cf. Dan. 2:45). Rome had two stages – it transitioned from a Republic to an Empire in 27 BC with Emperor Augustus Caesar. These four represent the fulfilments of the prophesy that preceded the first-Advent of Christ: The winged Lion was Persia, the Bear was Greece, the Leopard was the Roman Republic, and the last beast was the Roman Empire.

However, because the Jews rejected Christ, Daniel’s prophecy takes on a secondary meaning for the second-Advent of Christ. The symbol of the winged lion went from Iran to St Mark’s in Alexandria Egypt, and thence to St Mark’s in Venice – Europe’s merchant capital of the middle ages. After the 4th crusade resulted in the fall of Constantinople to the Moslems, the silk road to China was closed and the Venician merchant-bankers relocated to London. Thus the first lion which previously represented Persia, becomes the symbol for England instead with regards to the fulfilment of this prophesy for the rise of great empires preceding the second advent of Christ in our era.

The lion and the eagle suggest the UK and the USA, but the significance of the feathers on the wings is that in Daniel 4:33 Nebuchadnezar’s period of madness corresponds to him growing out of hair like eagle’s feathers.

” The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.” Daniel 4:33

So the feathers being plucked represents the reversal or end of the time of madness.

Likewise, the madness of Nebuchadnezar was represented by him having a beast’s heart:

” Let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.” Daniel 4:16

The reversal or end of this heart madness is the removal of the beast’s heart so that he is given a man’s heart.

This is a double confirmation – feathers and heart – of what the vision represents.

So in Daniel 7:4 is saying that the Lion nation – which is the symbol for Great Britain – will suffer a period of madness which will eventually come to an end. Nebuchadnezar’s madness ended and his greatness returned to him:

” At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.” Daniel 4:36

So Daniel’s vision in chapter 7 of the lion with plucked eagle’s feathers represents the ending of the period of time that started with the English king who was afflicted with madness and lost his American Empire. That was King George III who lost America in 1784 with the Treaty of Paris.

The mystery of 666 is from Revelation chapter 13:

” 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.” Revelation 13:18

The number 666 must be counted to reach a particular man. This man corresponds to the white horse rider of Revelation 6.

“And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” Rev. 6:2

These 4 horses correspond to the 4 beasts of Daniel 7, the four kingdoms that will arise in the end to attempt to rule the world. Hence this first white horse represents the lion, the UK, and its rider the coming monarch.

So to get 666 we must know where to start counting – and then count down to this final English monarch. We have to begin with the king who lost the American empire due to his madness – which was King George III. We count all the monarchs after him along with the roman numeral in their names. Each one must have both an English name and include a roman numeral because the scripture says:

” 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.” Revelation 13:17

So they have names and numbers together – so Victoria becomes Victoria 1.

We don’t include King George III in the count because he is the one who lost the kingdom – we count the next series of monarchs that follow him until we get exactly to 666.

The next eight British monarchs and their reigns are as follows:

GEORGE IV 1820 – 1830
WILLIAM IV 1830 – 1837
VICTORIA I 1837 – 1901
EDWARD VII 1901 – 1910
GEORGE V 1910 – 1936
GEORGE VI 1936 – 1952
ELIZABETH II 1952 – present

To count the English letters in their name we use a simple 26 letter alphabet pattern of A=1, B=2, etc.

Here are the totals:

George 4 = 61
William 4 = 83
Victoria 1 = 98
Edward 7 = 62
George 5 = 62
Edward 8 = 63
George 6 = 63
Elizabeth 2 = 90

Sum: 582.

If the next person is going to exactly reach 666 then his name and number must add up to 84.

A name like “Austin” or “Alexander” equals 84, but this would not be correct because they must have a Roman numeral of 1 added as we did for Victoria. If didn’t have Victoria’s name with a 1 then the total we would need is 85. The names “Theodor” and “Wenzel” add up to 85 – but this cannot be correct because they do not have the “number of the name” roman numeral at the end.

The only name I’ve discovered that fits is “William V” because it adds up to 84 and contains an appropriate Roman numeral. This could be the current prince William, or it could be prince Charles or prince Harry if either of them was given the crown and they were to decide to take the name “William” as their regal name.

From this analysis, it appears that King William V will be the first antichrist. The “number of his name” is V or 5.

I don’t want to set a certain date – but it might happen in 2017. This is because of the significant prophecies of “seventy years” in the Bible.

Our present American-led world-order begins with the end of World War 2 and the establishment of the United Nations in 1945 under which Israel was authorized to become a nation state on November 29, 1947.

Jesus prophesied about the budding of all the trees:

“And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” Luke 21:29-32

The fig tree represents Israel – so the date when Israel forms – and the other ‘trees’ could mean the UN and the independence movements that occurred under the United Nations – portending the beginning of the end within a single generation.

This means that the seventy years following the events of 1945-1948 are very significant.

” And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” Jeremiah 25:11

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10

When Jesus came the first time, all the world, including his mother and Joseph, were required to return to the city of their birth to be taxed. There remains the mass exit of Jews from America to return to Israel. Could this happen next year, the 70th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel? The Jews in America have already signalled how paranoid they are against a Donald Trump presidency – and if it begin in January 2017 they might then begin their exodus.

The year 2017 has several significant anniversaries:

The end of WW2 also marks the time when the British Empire is said to have ended. In the Bible Tyre appears to represent England because it was a maritime power and called the crowning city etc. Here is the prophesy of 70 years regarding it:

” And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot. Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered. And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.” Isaiah 23:15-17

So if this Tyre represents England, we note that the British Empire ended with the loss of India and its other colonies after WW2, and that for the entire post war period of 70 years the United States of America has taken the lead as the world’s super-power. But according to the prophesy after “seventy years, according to the days of one king” Tyre returns to greatness.

Princess Elizabeth married Prince Philip on 20 November 1947 – just nine days before Israel was formed by the United Nations. Their seventieth anniversary is next year, 2017. In November 1948 Charles was born, and in 1952 Elizabeth became queen.

So if I were to dare to speculate based on these prophecies, then I’d say that before November 2017 Prince Philip will pass away, Queen Elizabeth with abdicate, and a new British monarch will take the throne under the name “William V” – and he will be wildly popular beyond anyone’s imagination.

I rather suspect that he will drive out the Moslems from Europe – playing the role of the “Great Catholic Monarch” of the Catholic prophecies which generally portray the white-horse antichrist in a positive light. This actor is described as a being a young military officer who suddenly rises to great prominence as a hero fighting against Moslems hoards who invade the west. The ‘migrant crisis’ seems to be leading to exactly this scenario. There are perhaps truths in these prophesies, like those of St Malachy that indicate the current pope is the last pope, so I would not discard them entirely only on account of them coming from Catholic sources. But I’d be careful to compare them with the scriptures. In fact, it seems likely that Isaiah 18 exactly backs up this prediction of a great sudden rise of European power against the Moslems and Africans.

Prince Harry seems poised for this role. The 29 year old dashing prince is a charismatic combat veteran who is currently on a 1-year sabbatical from army duties, but he returns next year. Just in time.

We also have significant 400 year anniversary of slavery in Virginia in 1619 which is sure to agitate the trouble making negroes to rise up and cause significant problems.

Although I’m reluctant to name dates, we are command to discern the times.

” And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.” Matthew 16:3-4

The Jews already had the scriptures – they should have read them and believed them and known the times in which they lived. If they had paid attention to the words of Daniel’s prophecies, they would have known they were living in the days that were ripe for the coming of the messiah.

We too have scriptures – we have the King James Bible in English. It’s sacred words are written down for us to read and believe. We are accountable for what that Book says to us.

” And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.” 1 Chronicles 12:32

We too must discern the time – and it sure looks like the time is now here.

Last Week of Jesus’ Ministry = 10 year tribulation

Here is the chronology of Christ’s final week before the crucifixion and three days to the resurrection – for a total of 10 days:

DAY 1 / friday
Six days before the passover {Joh 12:1}  at Bethany supper w/Lazarus. Judas angry over waste of money {Mt 26:6; John 12:4}
DAY 2  / saturday
“on the next day” {John 12:12} is triumphal entry and starts teaching daily in the temple.
DAY 3 / sunday
“in the morning as he returned to the city” {Mark 11:14} curses fruitless fig tree.
Purges temple by casting out money changers {Lu 19:45-48 Mr 11:11 Mt 21:12-16}.
DAY 4 / monday
next morning {Mark 11:20} fig tree is dried up from the roots. Authority questioned {Mark 11:27}
DAY 5 / tuesday
Announces betrayal “after two days is the feast” {Mt 26:2 Mr 14:1,2}.
Judas covenants to betray Jesus. {Mt 26:15; Lk 22:3}
DAY 6 / wednesday
prepares and eats last supper {Mt 26:17; Mk 14:12} at garden arrested {Mt 26:56}
DAY 7 / thursday
Trials and Crucifiction and burial {Mt 27:1; 57}
DAY 8 / friday
tomb all day – grave sealed {Mt 27:63}
DAY 9 / saturday
tomb all day
DAY 10 / sunday
resurrection early morning. {Mt 28:1} {Resurrected saints – Mt 27:52-53}.

The time-frame for the Tribulation is the same.

Year 1. The time-frame begins with Christ dinning with Lazarus who was raised from the dead – which signifies that the tribulation begins with the rapture of the Church out of this world. (John 12:1).

Year 2. The “triumphal entry” corresponds to the white-horse king of Revelation 6:2 who goes forth fighting World War 3 to establish world government.

Year 3. The victory of the USA/UK/UN against Russia and Iran in World War 3 results in a seven year “world peace treaty” that allows apostate Jews, the Vatican, and the Freemasons to take Jerusalem away from Israel and build there an ecumenical Temple belonging to the United Nations. This counterfeits what Jesus did on day 3 cleansing the temple area by driving out the money changers.

Year 4, Year 5, Year 6. Jesus taught in the temple on these days – showing that the Temple will operate for a couple of years. However, Jesus finds no fruit on the fig tree day 3 and it is cursed and withered day 4 – showing that the Jewish nation fails to turn to God or direct the nations to God, despite their re-built temple. The Jews are betrayed, the world government seeks to take the temple away from them and dedicate it to the worship of Satan.

Year 7 – With the abomination of desolation, the Great Tribulation starts, and World War 4.

Year 8 – Great Tribulation

Year 9 – Great Tribulation

Year 10 – Great Tribulation comes to an end at Armageddon in Israel with the Return of Jesus Christ with his Church, the rescue of the elect (5 wise virgins), and the resurrection of the saints who were killed during the tribulation.

So the life of Christ and the life of the nation of Israel correspond prophetically.
