Prophetic Ponderings: Part II
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Matthew 24:23-25
On numerous occasions, Jesus warned His disciples, and by extension us, about the time of great deception that would be coming upon the world in the last days. Now that we are in the final moments of the last days, we can see this deception shifting into overdrive because our great enemy, Satan, knows his time is short. With this shortening of time, comes the simultaneous acceleration and compacting of our enemy's assaults against mankind.
Modern technology was supposed to free up our lives and unlock and unlock the world's great mysteries. Modern technology, particularly digital technology, was supposed to enable mankind to take that next, great, evolutionary leap toward singularity (i.e., digital godhood). Paradoxically, in the greatest age of information humanity has ever had, not only is the truth is harder to come by but our lives now busier and more complicated than ever.
At a time when unlimited information is literally at our fingertips, our enemy is waging a relentless, no-holds-barred, misinformation blitzkrieg to blur the lines between reality and fantasy, fact and fiction, and truth and half-truths. As it turns out, all of this access to knowledge has not made things more comprehensibly black and white, but increasingly varying shades of grey. Fair to say, there are more confused people today, than they were even 50 years ago.
Nevertheless, the point of today’s brief is not to titillate or tickle curiosities, but to warn. Here are five interconnected areas that deserve our attention so that we will not fall into the trap being laid for so many. In so long as our Lord tarries, our enemy will use misinformation in the coming days, weeks, months, and years to divide and confuse us, as well as to minimize the impact of the Gospel so as to deceive everyone they can here at the end of all things.
This was a term first coined by Dr. J. Allen Hynek in the 1970s regarding his work in Project Bluebook. This project existed solely to cover up the unexplained aerial phenomena (UAP) on behalf of the US government. I addressed all of this in more detail in my previous article "UMBRA," regarding the increased activity in the skies above the earth, so I will not cover it here. What has happened since then, was the official disclosure in June 2021 in the US Senate Report. Granted, the report itself didn't detail much, however, this was the first time the US government officially and publically acknowledged the existence of UAP/UFOs.
APPENDIX B – Senate Report Accompanying the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021
Senate Report 116-233, accompanying the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, provides that the DNI, in consultation with the SECDEF and other relevant heads of USG Agencies, is to submit an intelligence assessment of the threat posed by UAP and the progress the UAPTF has made to understand this threat.
Needless to say, since the late 1940s, the US government has known these "aliens" exist and have been attempting to understand this phenomenon (albeit without public scrutiny- i.e. Project Bluebook) and what potential threats they are to national security. However, they would never openly or officially state whether they exist or not on the record...until now.
Fox News, 11/22/2021
So if nothing else, the report mandated in the funding bill, is at least, a public admission by US Intelligence and Defense organizations to state things exist in which they clearly have no understanding of. This is, in my estimation, the camel's nose in the tent. What I will add is that this UFO/UAP activity is demonic in nature. It is no surprise, as we are finding out, that as technology increases, so too is their ability to mask/hide while still demonstrating the reality of their presence.
I believe there are places in the world where the veil between our reality (our physical, corporeal world) and the spiritual dimension (i.e., what the pagans deem the magical realm), are “thinner” than others. I will share with you why this is pertinent to the idea of end times deception.
Throughout Scripture, the enemies of Israel who worshipped false gods (i.e., fallen angels), took to the ‘high places’ to build their temples. Satan's throne sat upon the acropolis (highest hill) in Pergamos overlooking the vast countryside. Why high places? Well, Scripture tells us that Satan and his demonic forces are not presently hanging out in the fiery, shadowy pits of hell. They are elsewhere.
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. Ephesians 2:1-3
Satan and his demonic forces are at work in what we would call, the second heaven (our atmosphere), which also speaks to the increased activity in the “high strangeness” category above. As the time draws nearer, the more frenzied they are becoming in their attempts to ramp up deception in the last days. However, they are at present, being restrained by Someone.
There are also the archeological discoveries over the past three centuries which attest to the reality that certain latitudes/longitudes carry more significant meanings than other places to pagan cultures. Why this is, is anyone's guess. However, if these pagan cultures are being influenced by fallen angels, and angels (both holy and fallen) were present at creation, then they have a far deeper understanding of the nature of our reality than we ever could. This may be why pyramids and other megalithic structures are found throughout the world generally along the same longitudinal circle.
Of interest to today’s brief, is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) facility at CERN 300 feet beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. Initially created in 1951, CERN has been at the forefront of all things relating to particle physics. According to one report, this location was initially chosen as a way to both unite Europe and stop the "brain drain" after WWII (Source). Makes sense, especially given the factors like the Marshall Plan, the Bretton-Woods Agreement, Operation Paperclip, and other post-WWII initiatives, which gave the US a huge geopolitical advantage.
CERN’s original purpose, or at least their publicly stated one, was purely a scientific endeavor intent on searching for things like the Higgs boson (God particle), antimatter, dark matter, dark energy, and strangelets. Somewhere along the line, CERN's purpose began to become a little more ambitious. In 2009, Sergio Bertolucci, then Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, offered reporters outside their headquarters a cryptic statement: "Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it.”
For sure, there are some strange goings-on at CERN these days. Skywatchtv has done the yeoman's work of uncovering all the particular occult oddities associated with CERN, so I won’t rehash it here. However, if you want to do a fascinating deep dive on the occult nature of CERN, go here. But there was one thing that popped into my mind this week regarding CERN. In particular, is the bronze statue of the dancing Shiva who sits outside her headquarters.
Image Source: https://www.chamundaswamiji.com/nataraja-the-dancing-form-of-shiva-at-cern/
For some reason, the bronze Shiva statue outside of CERN’s headquarter (a gift in 2004 from the government of India) reminds me of the quote by the late Robert Oppenheimer (i.e., the father of the atomic bomb). After witnessing the first detonation on July 16th, 1945, he mistranslated a verse from the Hindu Bhagavad-Gita to say this: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
With regards to CERN, I believe this is one of those thin places, which will one day be used to open a gateway into another dimension. I know a lot of bible prophecy expositors have referenced this in relation to the demonic locusts which come out of the bottomless pit in Revelation 9. However, I think even before that, probably right after the Rapture of the Church, this doorway will be opened to welcome some “visitors” just as Bertolucci prophetically mentioned.
Think about it.
How can Satan counter the supernaturally miraculous and mysterious nature of the Rapture?
Let’s say the Rapture of the Church happens, and the world is reeling in the after-effects of it. Right around the same time, CERN successfully opens a doorway/portal to another realm, which then allows some benevolent visitors to come through. Again, ask yourself the question of cui bono (Latin for who benefits). Well, again, Satan would benefit. The only thing I could think of that would counter the Rapture of the Church in sheer gravitas, would be the opening of such a portal and the arrival of these otherworldly visitors. If the Restrainer is the Holy Spirit-indwelt Church, and the Church is removed, then so to will this supernatural restraint. And Satan is going to want to make a grand entrance.
Has this not been what movies, television, books, comic books, and so forth have been conditioning us to believe now for decades?
Let me put this another way. If Satan is behind all the High Strangeness (i.e. UFOs) that has been going on in the skies over the earth now since the 1940s, then to what end if not, the arrival of his own emissaries to the earth after the Restrainer has been removed?
The sky over Geneva Switzerland June 26, 2016
Apogee definition: The farthest or highest point; the apex.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; Genesis 1:14
Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. Daniel 8:23
And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. Luke 21:24
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, Galatians 4:4
that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. Ephesians 1:10
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. Romans 11:25
For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. Romans 11:25 (Emphasis mine)
We see in Genesis chapter 1 that God created the heavens to be used as a way to measure time on the earth. We see from Genesis 1-12 that God dealt with mankind, collectively as Gentiles. We don't see the separation between Jews and Gentiles until Abraham is called out from amongst them in Genesis 12. We also see that God has preappointed certain parameters for both measuring and limiting the extent to the various kingdoms and empires which have come and gone. There was a certain apex, or apogee, or furthest extent God will allow a nation/kingdom/empire to go before they are judged (ex. Amorites). Keep all of this in mind as we move forward.
PHANTOM TIME HYPOTHESIS
He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. Daniel 7:25 (Emphasis mine)
Now, the reason I include this in today’s brief is due to the passage above regarding the antichrist’s actions, as well as to his intent for why he does it. First, let me quote the source before concluding with my thoughts.
The phantom time hypothesis is a historical conspiracy theory asserted by Heribert Illig. First published in 1991, it hypothesizes a conspiracy by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and possibly the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII, to fabricate the Anno Domini dating system retroactively, in order to place them at the special year of AD 1000, and to rewrite history to legitimize Otto's claim to the Holy Roman Empire. Illig believed that this was achieved through the alteration, misrepresentation and forgery of documentary and physical evidence. According to this scenario, the entire Carolingian period, including the figure of Charlemagne, is a fabrication, with a "phantom time" of 297 years (AD 614–911) added to the Early Middle Ages. The hypothesis has never attracted any support from historians. (Source)
Proposals for this hypothesis:
“Scarcity of archeological evidence”
“Presence of Romanesque architecture in tenth-century Western Europe, suggesting the Roman era was not as long ago as conventionally thought.”
“The relation between the Julian calendar, Gregorian calendar and the underlying astronomical solar or tropical year.”
Criticism of this hypothesis:
“Dendrochronology” otherwise known as tree ring dating”
“Observed astronomical events” (ex. Halley’s Comet seen by observers in the Tang dynasty in China.”
“Fixing Easter Sunday” to both the vernal and nominal equinoxes
“If Charlemagne and the Carolingian dynasty were fabricated, there would have to be a corresponding fabrication of the history of the rest of Europe, including Anglo-Saxon England, the Papacy, and the Byzantine Empire. The "phantom time" period also encompasses the life of Muhammad and the Islamic expansion into the areas of the former Western Roman Empire, including the conquest of Visigothic Iberia. This history too would have to be forged or drastically misdated. It would also have to be reconciled with the history of the Tang dynasty of China and its contact with the Islamic world, such as at the Battle of Talas.”
As ludicrous as this hypothesis sounds, we now live in a day and age where I believe people will wholeheartedly embrace it.
We live in a generation that energetically embraces the idea that gender is fluid, man causes climate change, and that Marxism actually works. We have government officials and academia embracing and promoting equally ludicrous, revisionist histories such as the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory (CRT). Would they also not accept something as crazy as us actually being in the 17th century (instead of the 21st)? Again, if were we to ask the question of cui bono, then clearly, Satan would be the intended recipient of such collective gullibility.
Satan wants/needs more time, and he understands God’s use of creation, astronomy, and the concept of the “fullness of time.” Satan has been here from the beginning and has lived through every civilization and will be able to manipulate the facts as he sees fit. Therefore, if he can, he will attempt to give himself more time by changing the times and seasons. Presumably, he has used these other attempts (CRT, 1619 Project, Higher Criticism, etc.) to either revise history or confuse the calendars, in order to plant the seed of doubt in men's minds for this singular purpose. So in my mind, the question isn't whether he will try and use this, but to what effect (if any) it will have on God's intended timeline.
This idea, first theorized by science (quantum and string theory) and academia, has now been popularized by comic books and movies. From CARM.org
The multiverse is a hypothetical set of universes, the same size as ours, that are innumerable, and our universe is just one of them. Therefore, there would be an infinite number of universes in existence beyond our universe and possibly existing in different dimensions. But, there are problems with this view. Nevertheless, let’s take a look at what the multi-verse is supposed to be.
“Imagine, for example, that the cosmos is infinite. Then the part of it that we can see—the visible universe—is just one of an uncountable number of other, same-sized universes that add together to make a multiverse. Another version called the “Many Worlds Interpretation” comes from quantum mechanics. Here, every time a physical particle, such as an electron, has multiple options, it takes all of them—each in a different, newly spawned universe.” Other words used to describe the multi-verse are meta-universe, alternate universes, megaverse, and omniverse. (Source)
As the writer goes on to explain, there are obvious complications with the idea of a multiverse, chief of which, is the concept of God, salvation, free will, and eternal consequences. The writer uses the “two Bobs” scenario. Paraphrasing it, the Bob in this universe is a devout atheist. A Bob in another universe (reality) is a devout Christian. Assuming there is one God, one heaven, one means of salvation, then who gets saved and who doesn’t?
Nevertheless, the multiverse is one that is gaining steam and importance amongst academia, media, social media, and entertainment as being a real thing. How soon will it be before it’s taught in school as fact just as Darwinian Evolution has been? Technically, it’s already taught as a theory with regards to higher-level math and physics, but how long before it makes its way into the elementary levels is anyone’s guess. We shall assume for the sake of argument, and the popularity of movie franchises like Marvel and DC, that it's already in schools, or at least, in the minds of the average teenager.
THE COMING PRINCE
“And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
Daniel 9:26-27 (Emphasis mine)
I've learned a lot of finer points from Dr. Andy Woods over the years. One of those things is in regards to the "he" in Daniel 9:27. As Dr. Woods is apt to point out, the nearest antecedent to the word “he” in Dan. 9:27, is the “prince who is to come” as found in Dan. 9:26. He (the prince who is to come), is of the people who destroy the city and the sanctuary. Since the next people from Daniel’s day to destroy the city and the sanctuary were the Romans (under Titus Vespasian circa AD70), then this “prince who is to come,” will come out of the Roman Empire. We can’t be dogmatic to say where exactly, just that it would be from somewhere within the confines of the old Roman Empire.
Keeping that in mind, Great Britain’s Prince Charles made an interesting statement at this year’s October 31st, 2021 COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland. Here is an excerpt of his speech. Notice what he says here that is neither explained nor identified.
Prince Charles: (02:40)
We also know that countries, many of whom are burdened by growing levels of debt, simply cannot afford to go green. Here we need a vast military style campaign to marshal the strength of the global private sector, with trillions at his disposal far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders. It offers the only real prospect of achieving fundamental economic transition. So how do we do it? First, how do we get the private sector all pulling in the same direction? After nearly two years now of consultation, CEOs have told me that we need to bring together global industries to map out in very practical terms what it will take to make the transition. We know from the pandemic that the private sector can speed up timelines dramatically when everyone agrees on the urgency and the direction. So each sector needs a clear strategy to speed up the process of getting innovations to market. (Source)
Who is the “his” Prince Charles is referring to? Was this just a slip of the tongue, or a verbal faux pas? I listened to it several times, and he absolutely said “his” and not “its.” Did Prince Charles accidentally let slip the fact the globalists have a person in mind to run the entire world? Could it be one of Klaus Schwab's (World Economic Forum’s founder) up-and-coming protégés? We know Schwab’s Global Leaders School has already produced (i.e., graduated) many known world leaders…is one of them now being groomed to take on that mantel of THE global leader?
I don't like to assume things, especially drawing vague connections between seemingly disparate issues. However, in this instance, I think it's prudent that we logically think through some of these issues and see how they connect.
For instance, we know for a fact that globalists such as David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brezinski, Henry Kissinger, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and other prominent globalists, have spent decades planning for a global government. Let us assume for a second that these prominent globalists have planned beyond just the logistics of their major initiatives like Agenda 2030 and the Great Reset. At this point in the planning process, they would be well beyond the overarching agenda/outline phase and are now simply fine-tuning their plans accordingly. Therefore, it is not a stretch to assume that they already have the next generation of world leaders identified, they are likely grooming and prepositioning them so that they can take the reins as soon as the opportunity arises.
Furthermore, they are not just priming the leadership roles at the highest echelons of the international stage but also seeding the national and regional stages as well (i.e., secretary, governors, cabinet ministers, etc.) all the way down the line. We've already seen firsthand how the Democrat Party, vis a vis Barack Obama, George Soros, and the Clinton's, have emplaced people (judges, attorney generals, military leadership, etc.) loyal to their ideology all across the US federal and state governments.
Now, if these globalists have been planning their new world order since at least the early 1990s, it doesn't seem like such a stretch to assume they have several (or more) people already lined up to assume control as soon as the world's economy crashes. For example, most people had no idea who Anthony Fauci was until COVID 19 became an issue...even though he'd been in federal service for decades under six different administrations. Look at all the damage he (an unelected bureaucrat) has done in just under two years.
We also know that national governments around the world are finally admitting (publically and officially) that there are beings/entities interacting with our world, of whom, they know little about. Perhaps they know exactly who they are, but aren't saying. Either way, it seems like a form of disclosure meant to desensitize the public to the reality of their existence, rather than any real source of concern. Thus, between the increased UFO/UAP activity, and the portal CERN is aggressively trying to open, it just seems like the perfect, satanically-inspired distraction, the world will get immediately after the Rapture of the Church.
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess. 2:9-12 (Emphasis mine)
IOW, by removing the Restrainer, God is going to allow Satan to exercise this "strong delusion" in the form of the arrival of these superior beings to come through this CERN portal at the right time. That right time will be shortly after the Rapture, while the world is still reeling from the global economic collapse due to the disappearance of billions of people. These beings (actually demonic forces) are going to appear "benevolent" and "superior," and will work hand in glove with these prepositioned global leaders to guide the world in our most dire hour of need.
Furthermore, these superior alien beings are going to tell those left behind, they came from another universe from within the multiverse, and that our world is really centuries earlier than they were led to believe. At the least, they will change the times so that it aligns with what the Jews believe heralds the arrival of their messiah (i.e., apogee). Either that or the aliens will point to one man (i.e., one of the globalist prepositioned candidates) as the messiah they were waiting for. This man will then be thrust into the spotlight as the natural leader of the world and uniter of all religious faiths and beliefs.
These superior entities will point out who the world's natural leader was intended to be in order to get the world's citizens to rally behind such a candidate. This man will also have his false prophet, who is demonically endowed with supernatural powers, to authenticate this claim of messiahship. Adding to the arsenal of these supernaturally empowered and supported leaders will be the full might of the world's advanced technology in the form of artificially intelligent (and possibly possessed) quantum computer systems, weaponized drones, talking giants, digitally-powered finance, and economic systems, and satellite-based surveillance systems. It will truly be a terrifying and frightful kingdom devouring all who oppose it.
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:1-4
The CERN portal, where those superior beings came through initially, will remain open and will likely be a gateway they use throughout the first half of the Tribulation. The interaction between the spiritual and physical world will be like the world was during the days of Noah (i.e., Genesis 6) and will be a source of great exploitation, up until the fifth Trumpet Judgment. Here, God will allow another, deeper, door to open up, and this will be where Apollyon and his demonic horde will come storming out to inflict torment on all those who are not sealed by God. Unfortunately for those who have received the "mark of the beast," it appears this technology will do something to the human body that either extends the life or prevents people from dying prematurely.
In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. Revelation 9:6
The days in which we live are becoming increasingly bizarre and frightening. The above scenario is likely the world to come for those who reject Jesus Christ and His free gift of salvation and eternal life today. As frightening as those days will be, anyone who dies (even now) without receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, will die in their sins and face eternity separated from their Creator. So if you do not know Jesus Christ, now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2). For those of us in the faith, rest assured, our trials and tribulations are almost at their end.
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing. 1 Thess. 5:9-11
