Where Did We Get
the Concept of a
Halo in Christian
Theology?





 
     
  I think there is evidence for halos in the Bible, but not as envisioned by most artists. Revelation 10:1 describes an angel clothed in clouds and a “rainbow” over his head.The angels that visited Ezekiel had what he described as “…something like an expanse, like the awesome gleam of crystal, extended over their heads.” Ezekiel 1:22 (NAS) That could very possibly be describing a glass-like helmet, something worn by many of our modern-day visitors.

 
  Ezekiel's 4-faced angel
One artist's depiction of Ezekiel's four-faced angel Illustration reveals just how literal some interpretations are and enfluenced by the artist's prejudices and knowledge.

Temple
Implements
and Vessels
used in Feasts,
Ceremonies and
Temple Worship
by Priests






 
Although use of the Temple Implements were made via directions from God, Himself, the complete creation and proper use of these implements did not occur until the time of Solomon when the Hebrews built the permanent temple in Jerusalem. During Moses' reign, the chief priest was his brother Aaron. For more details see our section: Third Temple
1
Copper Laver or Muchni - The copper laver and stand, which stands in the Temple courtyard between the sanctuary and the outer altar, is the first of the Temple vessels to greet the priests each morning. There the priests wash their hands and feet before proceeding to attend to the daily tamid offering.
5
Mizrak - The priest collects the blood from the sacrifice into the Mizrak, and then spills the blood onto the corner of the altar.
4
Large Mizrak - The large mizrak, as the smaller mizrak, is used to gather the blood of the sacrifice, and to spill it onto the corner of the altar. The large mizrak is used when sacrificing larger animals, (cows and bullocks).
2
Three Pronged Fork - The three-pronged fork is mentioned in 1 Samuel 2:13. According to Rashi and Maimonides, the fork is used to turn over the offerings on the altar fire, or to lift up unconsumed portions of the offering so that the woodpile can be rearranged.
Measuring Cup
Measuring Cup - Measuring cups are used for measuring flour, wine and oil, of which specific amounts are prescribed to be used as ingredients in various offerings.
Copper Vessel
Copper Vessel - The copper vessel is used for preparing the meal offering. Meal offerings are made using various amounts of flour, oil and spices. 
Silver Shovel
Silver Shovel - The silver shovel is kept on the southwestern corner of the altar. The shovel is used for the removal of ashes left on the altar, the first task performed by the priests each morning at the break of dawn. 
Silver Vessel Wine Libation
Silver Vessel Wine Libation -The silver decanter is used for the wine libation. Wine is poured on the altar twice daily, morning and evening, accompanying the daily service.
Lottery Box or Kalpi - On Yom Kippur, the High Priest reaches into the lottery box and chooses lots. Thus is determined which goat will be used as an offering to G-d, and which will be sent off to Azazel, as an atonement for the sins of the people. During the First Temple, the lots were fashioned of wood. In the time of the Second Temple, they were of gold. The lots pictured above are fashioned of both wood and gold.
Silver Cup for Libations
Silver Cup for Water Libation - The silver cup, with the golden flask, is used in the Festival of the Water Libation, which takes place during the Holiday of Succot. At dawn, triests and levites, accompanied by the throngs of participants, wend their way down to the Spring of Shiloach. Water is drawn from the spring, and carried up the the Temple in the golden flask, where it is poured into the silver cup, as it rests atop the altar. 
Silver Libation Vessels - One of the main aspects of the holiday of Sukkot (Tabernacles) is the Biblical commandment, "And you shall be glad on your holiday, and you shall be only joyful" (Deut. 16:14). Indeed, the pilgrims who arrived in Jerusalem at the Temple's courtyard came to rejoice. The focus of this rejoicing was the ceremony surrounding the commandment to pour water on the altar - the water libation.
Sickle

Sickle - On the 16th day of Nissan, in a public gathering on the outskirts of Jerusalem, the first of the barley crop is harvested using sickles. This barley is then brought to the Holy Temple to be used in the Omer offering.
Seives
Seives for Omer Offering - Once the barley is brought to the Temple Courtyard, priests beat, roast, grind, and sift the grain. A handful of the resulting flour is burned on the altar. The remainder is eaten by the priests.
Three Tier
3-Tiered Abuv - The Abuv is a three-tiered stand. The top level holds a perforated copper pan, and below it is a receptacle for hot coals. It is used for roasting the newly harvested barley of the Omer offering, performed on Passover.
 
Hatavat Menorah
Hatavat Menorah Cleansing Vessel - The daily service of the Temple includes the cleaning of the seven oil cups of the Menorah, using the vessel pictured above, (in Hebrew, Hatavah). The vessel includes tongs and a brush.
Oil Pitcher
Oil Pitcher - The oil pitcher is used to replenish the oil for the menorah. The design pictured above is based on an ancient coin from the Second temple period. This pitcher contains 3.5 lug, (2 liters) of oil.
Menorah Oil
Menorah Oil Flask - The small golden flask is used to pour olive oil into the menorah. The priest pours oil into this flask from the larger pitcher, which contains enough oil necessary for all seven lamps. This smaller flask is then used to replenish the oil of each individual lamp.  
Rankincense Censor
Frankincense Censor - Once a week, on the Sabbath, the twelve loaves of the showbread are removed by the priests, and replaced with new loaves. At the same time, the two portions of frankincense are also replaced. The two portions of frankincense are carried inside the gold Frankincense Censer. Still inside the censer, they are placed on the table of the showbread.
Incense Chalice
Incense Chalice - The incense chalice, which holds "half a portion" (approx. 200 grams), of the incense offering ingredients. The chalice is carried into the Sanctuary of the Temple, where the golden incense altar stands. Upon entering the Sanctuary the priest sounds the small ring-shaped bell seen on the top of the chalice cover.

Incense Shovel

Incense Shovel - This shovel is used to remove burning coals from the outer altar. The priest then carries the coals on this shovel into the sanctuary, where the coals are used on the golden incense altar.  
Menorah
Menorah - The menorah, made from a single piece of solid gold, stands in the southern side of the Sanctuary. Each morning a priest prepares and rekindles the wicks. The central wick, known as "the western candle" is required to burn perpetually. The oil and wicks of this candle are changed in such a fashion as to insure that it will never be extinguished.  
Showbread Table
Showbread Table - in the northern side of the Sanctuary stands the table of the Showbread. The table is made of wood, overlaid with gold. Upon it are placed the twelve loaves of showbread. Each Sabbath, the loaves are simultaneously removed and replaced by fresh loaves, so as to insure that these loaves remain "perpetually" on the table. Miraculously, the week old loaves being replaced also retain their heat and freshness. These loaves are distributed among the priests.
Incense Altar
Incense Altar - Centrally located in the Sanctuary, between the menorah to the south, and the table of the showbread to the north, stands the incense altar, directly in front of the Holy of Holies, to the west. The incense altar, made of wood covered with gold, is employed in what is considered to be the most beloved aspect of the Temple service in G-d's eye: the incense offering. In order to allow for every priest to perform this most prized of offerings, a daily lot is drawn. Only those priests who have never offered incense upon the altar are allowed to participate.
arc with sphere
Ark of The Covenant - This is one implement/vessel that no one really knows what it looked like because of its secrecy. Even when carried before the Israelites during moves or battles, it was covered by a special cloth and no one could see it. When Christ returns we'll see exactly what the "wings of angels" really look like!
Priestly Garment
Ephod or Breastplate
Ephod or Breastplate - This was a special and mysterious part of the priestly garment with significant powers. The twelve semi-precious stones in the breastplate represent the twelve tribes of Israel.
Tzitz Crown
Tzitz or Crown - One of the four "golden garments" of the high priest is the crown, fashioned from one single piece of pure gold. The crown is worn across the forehead, extending from ear to ear, (as pictured in the inset above). It is held in place by a string dyed in the same blue color as used in all the high priest's garments. The crown bears the inscription: "Holy to G-d," and is worn by the high priest at all times, while he is officiating in the Temple.  
Silver Trumpets
Silver Trumpets - In the Holy Temple, silver trumpets are used during the Divine service, as well as for announcing the arrival of the Shabbat, the New Moon, the three Festivals, and for other various occasions.

Gold Shofar

Gold Shofar - The gold-plated shofar, (ram's horn), is blown in the Holy Temple on Rosh Hashana.
Silver Shofar
Silver Shofar - The silver-plated shofar, (ram's horn), is blown in the Holy Temple on fast days. 
David's Harp or Nevel
David's Harp or Nevel - The harp, or nevel, is a prominent instrument used by the Levites in their orchestral accompaniment to the Divine service. 
 
Lyre
Lyre - The lyre, or kinnor, like the harp, is frequently mentioned in the book of Psalms, as being a feature of the Levitical orchestra which performs in the Inner Courtyard of the Holy Temple. 
pyramid
 
Tetrahedron - The equilateral triangle represents the triune Godhead of Christianity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You could say, "Three aspects (facets) but one essence."

4. Next, I made a second copy and gave it a gray color to represent shading. Then I combined the two -- with the second placed slightly offset. It was now taking shape as a distinctly bearded male face with thinning hair.

5. To further "humanize" it, I gave it a softening "box blur". Now that's a face I recognize, but from where? After going through my files I discovered the following:

shroud image
6. The Shroud of Turin is said to be the burial cloth of Christ. Above, is the impression of Christ's face from the object. The monastary housing the priceless relic in Turin, Italy has kept it through the centuries and through one major fire that nearly destroyed it. I wondered how that image would line up with our crop circle image.

7. Here, I overlaid the Shroud of Turin image just to see if it would line up. Amazingly, the shroud image matches exactly to the crop circle image

Mystery Babylon

There are many mysteries in the Bible, but perhaps the most perplexing is the lack of mention of the United States. We Americans live in the most powerful and significant nation the world has ever known. Why would Scripture be so remiss in failing to mention this great world superpower? I would submit that it was not God's error, but our own in failing to see what was right in front of us. In the following section I will attempt to convince you that the place God called "Mystery Babylon" is actually the United States of America, and much is revealed about her, primarily that she would exist in the Last Days just before Christ's return. How can I make this "absurd" claim? One merely need to investigate the evidence. The following data examines the Scriptures and relevant data that identifies who the mysterious woman is "riding on a scarlet beast." She is clothed in the colors of royalty: red and purple, and holds enormous influence over the entire planet. But this royal nation will come to a sudden and untimely end, so it would behoove you to take notice as I examine these passages.

Mystery Babylon is also the nation/state/city where the Antichrist will gain his power. Many believe that the identity of the Antichrist won't be known until the church has been raptured (taken out of the way). The signs may become stronger, but the actual man will not be revealed. As a matter of general knowledge, I hold to that view. However, those who stay abreast of world events while studying their Bibles may be able to extrapolate the most likely candidate, as do I – which I've explored near the end of this dissertation – without naming names.

There are four possibilities for the identity of Mystery Babylon which prophecy teachers have examined. They include (1) Rome and the Vatican ruled by the Pope, (2) Mecca in Saudi Arabia which is waiting for the 12th Imam to arrive according to Islamic “mythology.” (3) Iraq and its ancient city of Babylon. And finally, a fourth possibility who's case seems to be growing stronger every day – and I believe has been affirmed – is (4) The United States of America and its POTUS.

Many have concluded that Mystery Babylon is Rome, Italy where the Pope resides in Vatican City. That's usually accompanied by conjecture that the Pope is the Antichrist. We'll have more to say about this in a few moments as you read on.

Although it's an interesting thought that the Antichrist could also be the 12th Imam, or Mahdi "...
the awaited son of Sayyida Fatima (the daughter of Mohammed) who will bring back a caliphate of justice and peace to the earth at the end of times," according to the Shiite sect of Islam. The city of Mecca is the holiest site in Islam, so there is some room for discussion for the Mahdi being the Antichrist. But Saudi Arabia (Midian in Scripture) will never become the key monitary influence in the world and certainly hasn't any deep-water sea ports for worldwide trade, as would be required of Mystery Babylon, nor has it sufficient "…fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep…" to trade with the rest of the world in any significant numbers (Revelation 18:11-14). They may trade in human slavery (with ISIS or other extremists), as described in Revelation, but so did America only two generations ago. Human trafficking for prostitution is also very much a part of our deep underground society.

Others identify Mystery Babylon as the site of the original Babylon, which is in modern-day Iraq. Prior to the fall of Saddam Hussein, many thought he might be the Antichrist because he was vigorously rebuilding his nation and made claims that he would rule the world from his rebuilt Iraqi city of Babylon. He even claimed that he was the reincarnation of the Chaldean Emperor, Nebuchadnezzar II. He said it was his destiny to "…sack Jerusalem, destroy Israel, and kill and capture the Jews." He even put his and King Nebuchadnezzar’s images side-by-side on Iraq's currency. But the evidence of history has obviously caused the revision of many of these theories. One less orthodox interpretation, however, stands above all the others. Let's take a look.

Clues for Identifying "Mystery Babylon"*
 
 
Keys to identifying Mystery Babylon are found in the writings of 4 major prophets, both of the Old and New Testaments. They include, Daniel, Isaiah and Jeremiah in the Old Testament, and John the Apostle in the New Testament. It takes some study to decipher these revelatory Scriptures and put them into a coherent chronological order. And we must do so utilizing the most current information we have about nations, events, organizations and leaders. We'll be exploring these descriptions and events beginning with the Book of Revelation.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ was written by the apostle John, while incarcerated on the Island of Patmos by Rome, and was inspired by visions he received from Christ and His archangels. Starting mid-chapter he introduces a world power that's known as "Mystery Babylon, harlot to the world." We are told that the city (representative of a nation/world power), has a female identity and she has great power over the leaders of the world. She has done so by deceiving everyone and making them rich through sea-faring trade. This indicates several things. First, that it cannot be current-day Iraq, as many have speculated, nor can it be Rome, Italy (the "city on seven hills"), nor the Muslim city of Mecca, although they are connected to this nation in several ways. Let's deal with the female aspect of her identity, first.

We must first ask, "Why is this world power called a 'mystery?'" The disciple John was given a glimpse into the future and shown the mystery nation's main city, rather, a large figure which represented it. The figure was of a woman and he was told she was a whore for all the evils and devastation she had caused to the rest of the world in order to enrich herself. John could only call it a mystery, as it was something unknown to him. It may have been called Mystery Babylon due to the fact this city/state or nation had yet to come onto the world scene. Meaning…it was not a city/state or nation known to the world at that time, which automatically excludes current-day Babylon. Nowhere in the Bible is a city/state or nation, yet to be established, addressed by its future name (France, Germany, London, New York City, etc.). Those who contend that it is current-day Babylon in Iraq have simply ignored all the other data associated with this mysterious entity. Let's look at some of the evidence.

Its National Symbol is Called a Harlot or Whore Rev 17:1,15
z
 
America’s main symbol is The Statue of Liberty...a female or feminine figure (this cannot be said of Iraq, nor of modern-day Rome). But is she a prostitute? Most Americans admire this symbol of freedom. However, what's not so broadly known is that the Statue of Liberty’s french sculptor, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, used an idol image of the Roman goddess, Libertas, as his model for Lady Liberty. And Libertas was an adaptation of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. Interestingly enough, Ishtar was the goddess of fertility, war and sexual whoredom or prostitution. The Ancient Babylonians first worshipped the goddess Ishtar, and the Romans later adopted her, but changed her name to Libertas in Latin, Liberty in English. Bertholdi was commissioned by a noted member of the Illuminati, Edward Laboulaye, a French Freemason who proposed the idea of a giant statue replicating a goddess of illumination that the Masonic movement idolized. The Illuminati were drawn to the figure which provided symbolic illumination, ergo the torch Lady Liberty holds in her right hand.

NOTE: The Illuminati contend that they will achieve control over the world's economies by controlling the International Bankers in their effort to create a one world government. Who can disagree that they are well on their way?

It's a Nation that "Sits on Many Waters"   Rev. 17:1
z
 
The figure that the apostle John saw was also sitting on water, just as does the Statue of Libery. Uniquely, the United States has a myriad of lakes and rivers and waterways, unlike Rome or Iraq. America's influence is worldwide and it has strategic bases in many parts of the globe on many waters, but so did the ancient Romans and Babylonians. But that's not the most unique thing about the revelation.

THE LAW OF DOUBLE REFERENCE
 
Some will ask at this point why we would reference Isaiah. Isaiah lived at a much earlier time and was referencing the Babylonians of his day. However, if you learn to study your Bible earnestly you’ll find the fifth law of interpretation is The Law of Double Reference.
                                                ==================
The Law of Double Reference is the principle of associating similar or related ideas which are usually separated from one another by long periods of time, and which are blended into a single picture like the blending of pictures by an old-fashioned stereopticon. That’s a fancy way of saying, together they give you the complete meaning to God’s instructive Word.

Charles Ryrie has said,

“It is one message
  for two audiences
    separated in time.”

But this passage further denotes a time when the people will be oppressed and be forced to return to their homes and lands for survival. Many in our nation believe that America is subject to great change and they fear even their own government. Gun sales are at an all-time high and justifiable paranoia runs rampant, particularly in rural areas, based on the direction our nation is headed. Religious freedoms are under attack. Political correctness has forced changes on the populace that are at least unhealthy, if not extremely dangerous. Even common sense things, like guarding our borders, are scorned. Our police are under attack and mobs of violent anarchists and lawless opportunists often roam our streets with the imprimatur of the liberal power centers, both religious and civic. Black Lives Matter has become a violent, but politically strong organization which sprang up from mob rule. And many in our nation fear for their freedoms and the very survival of our Republic.

It is the greatest kingdom that has ever existed with reach that is worldwide and influence like has never existed. The reach of Rome was once very significant, but does it have the remote possibility today of achieving such dominance? The answer is obvious. It hasn't the wherewithal to reach the status of superpower because it hasn't the geographical capacity to retain such worldwide trade. The same can be said of Iraq (the original Babylon).

Ancient Babylon had no deep water seaport. Modern Iraq has only one, located in the city of Umm Qasr. But it could never accommodate the world’s major commerce, as would be required, so it cannot possibly be the city/nation described in Revelation 18: 17-19. Iraq also doesn’t have the land mass to accommodate such massive trade and consumption as described, nor does the land-locked Rome, Italy (the city on seven hills). But New York does. And America has many deep-water sea ports, over 150 in fact.

America has had open arms for Jewish refugees from around the world. Especially survivors of the holocaust. Her blessing of Israel has meant a blessing to America. But when she turned from her initial ways, after nearly 200 years, and became greedy and selfish, then things began to change. The anti-semitic sentiments in America have become almost palatable. God will no longer bless a nation that has turned against His people. The Obama administration has steadily abandoned our at one-time allies in favor of treaties and trade with her enemies such as Iran and Libya. America's allies no longer trust her to keep her promises, as the abandonment of Iraq has attested. I never favored going into Iraq in the first place. I remember the lessons of history when America abandoned Viet Nam and left it to the mass slaughter of our newly made friends. I knew that, with our political system, sooner or later there would come along a new POTUS who would do to the decent Iraqis exactly what was done to the good people of South Viet Nam. Left them to their certain deaths and created more instability than they first encountered when arriving. Ergo, the rise of ISIS and al-Qaeda who have driven all the Christian Iraqis from the region and brutalized all in their paths.

The Jewish Population Issue: Jews Warned to Leave Babylon
Jeremiah 50:8, 25;  51: 6, 45     Isaiah 48:20 and also     Revelation 18:4
 
z
 
You won't find any Jews living openly in current Iraq and very few in Rome, so those nations can't be the Mystery Babylon, as many have surmised. But who does have a large population of practicing Jews? Today, the largest population of Jewish people is found in the United States. The next two largest concentrations of Jews combined, in Israel and Russia, do not equal the American Jewish numbers.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  Revelation 18:4 (KJV)
 
 
 
z
 
The time will come when the Jews in America will be warned to leave her shores. In fact, there has been a steady stream of immigrant Jews back to their homeland in recent years. Israel has become a beacon of hope in the Middle East. They can now boast becoming an IT (information technology) center of the world. Their development of the barren desert is nothing short of miraculous. Just do a Google Earth flyover of Israel to see the development of that nation. It stands in stark contrast to the vast desert wastelands of their surrounding neighbors.

Recent discoveries of expansive supplies of oil in the upper Golan Heights and natural gas in the Levant Basin has changed the dynamic in the region, as well. The newly discovered oil fields are comparable to those found in Saudi Arabia. It explains why Russia has taken such a keen interest in Syria. The Syrians claim to own the Golan Heights, which they lost in the Six Day War with Irael in 1967. We are warned, in Ezekiel 38, that a leader of the nation known as Maygog will invade Israel "to take a spoil" in the Latter Days. Maygog, many Bible scholars agree, is the land of Russia. Russia has lost great influence in the last several years due to the low cost of oil...their main trading resource.
 
golan map   golan oil map
Map where vast oil supplies have been found. Although the supply is equal to that of Saudi Arabia, the difficulty lies in the fact that the oil is under solid rock which is ten times thicker than normal bedrock. Many, myself included, are speculating that this is the "spoil" (spoils of war) that the Bible tells us is the impetus for the leader of Russia's invasion of Israel. See Ezekiel chpt. 38
 
This discovery worth hundreds of billions of dollars is the reason that Russia has taken an interest in Syria lately and in keeping their ally, president Assad, in power. International treaties recognize Syria as the rightful owner of the Golan Heights. I've been there and it is a deadlocked war zone that is administered by the U.N. at the moment. My bets are on Putin invading soon.
     
Due, primarily, to the low cost of crude oil Russians have suffered a dramatically reduced lifestyle in recent years. Since 2012 the ruble has lost half of its value and Vladimir Putin has shown deep aggressive tendancies (the military seizure and annexation of Crimea, threats against Ukraine, and sending troops into Syria over America's objection) in an effort to help restore the lost empire of the Soviet Union. He thinks it is his destiny to restore Russia to its glory days when the world feared his nation. Owning a great resource the size of the Golan oil fields would give him great leverage to control the cost of energy around the globe. Would he be willing to risk war with the United States in order to secure such a prize? The answer is obvious. He has demonstrated absolutely no fear of an America which chooses to "lead from behind." Whether Donald Trump can turn that around without causing a renewed Cold War (or worse) is another question.

Babylon is a Nation Weighed Down by its Own Government
Isaiah 47:13

sdf
  "Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels..."
 
Americans spend over one-third of their year just working to pay their federal taxes. Over 50 percent of every dollar spent in America goes toward government taxation in one form or another. That doesn't even include the costs of government regulations. The federal government has produced massive regulations on business, to the point that some say we'll never recover. For the first time in our history, 2015 was a year that there were more businesses that closed than new ones created to replace them. And regulations are destroying our economy. The number of pages produced just by the Obama administration, alone, is staggering. Some estimate over 450 thousand pages of new regulations have been written, over 81,000 just in 2015. New executive orders, rules and regulations cost businesses and the public over $22 billion a year at this point. Others estimate it's as high as $108 billion annually, quoting the government's own numbers. The weight of the government is exemplified by the EPA's guidelines, which are now 43 times as long as the Bible. And government spends our dollars like a drunken sailor.

"Those who dwell safely in the isles," is another passage attributed to the USA and a reference to her foolish carelessness in defending herself.

Multiple generational Americans are progressively taller than previous generations, particularly those of European and African descent.

Most Americans are now involved in the services industries because of advances in technologies which require much less labor-intensive sectors in our work force. An incredible number of people now are tied to their computers for their livelihoods. So we are not only taller and "smoother" (less callused) but, unfortunately, much more overweight and less healthy.

It's known as the "hammer" to the whole world. America has the most powerful military the world has ever known. Because of the wealth that we've been blessed with, our armed forces have gone mostly unchallenged. "Peace through strength" was the mantra we've grown used to since WW II. However, recent draconian cuts in our military leave us in a very vulnerable position. Even though the US spends nearly half of all global military expenditures annually, the US and the world have still made dramatic changes in the last 25 years in arms reductions, as the bottom chart illustrates.

The question we have to ask is, "Does that make us safer, or more vulnerable to an all-out war among Eastern and Western forces?" Diminished traditional ground forces may lead to nuclear war as the only option for one who is intent on world domination. This is exactly what the Bible has described with the demise of Mystery Babylon, as we shall see.

Only China and Russia have the budgets and leadership to build toward that end and no one is suggesting they are Mystery Babylon.

Rev. 17:2

Who can argue this point? As an example: San Francisco celebrates the annual Folsom Street Fair, the world’s largest assembly of sexual fetishists, deviants of all stripes and their admirers. Between 350,000 and 400,000 gay and straight leather and other fetishists meet to celebrate sexual deviance. America is responsible for producing over 89 percent of the world's pornography. "As big of a headache as freely distributed content is for the music and movie businesses, it’s even worse for adult entertainment because Web surfers have no compunction about getting the stuff without paying for it. The traditional-sector profiteers are hurting, too, thanks to the Internet, smartphones and iPads—and with people bringing in their own porn, hotel chains are pulling x-rated movies from their in-room entertainment options," wrote one industry observer. The most profit on porn, however, is made in China, South Korea and Japan with the highest per-capita expenditures. We live in a wicked and violent society. And American influence via the Internet and motion pictures has spread loose morality across the globe. I think it's about summed up in a destop wallpaper I saw recently:

American motto

Here are some revealing statistics:

#1) 89 percent of all pornography is created in the United States. 

#2) One survey found that 25 percent of American employees with Internet access visit pornography websites while they are at work

#3) Pornography is big business. $89 dollars is spent on pornography every single second of every single day in the United States.

#4) In fact, porn industry revenue is larger than all of the revenues for all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises combined. 

#5 ) A Focus on the Family survey found that 47% percent of American families said that pornography is a problem in their home. That is not just a minor problem – that is a national epidemic. Even pastors (54%) admit having viewed porn in the prior year. We all remember the disgraceful fall of Jimmy Swaggart.

#6) More than 70% of men in the United States between the ages of 18 and 34 visit at least one pornographic website in a typical month.  

#7) Researchers conducting a major study at the University of Montreal recently launched a search for men who had never looked at pornography – but could not find a single one.

#8) Law enforcement officials estimate that about 600,000 Americans and 65,000 Canadians are trading dirty child pictures online. They also say that the profits from creating and trading these images is approximately two to three billion dollars every single year.

#9) Young men in the United States are so addicted to sex and are so incredibly irresponsible that they are getting record numbers of young teen girls pregnant. In fact, it was recently reported that 115 girls at one high school in Chicago either already have a baby or were pregnant. 

#10) One out of every four teen girls in the United States now has an STD, and more than 25 percent of the residents of New York City now have herpes. Our moral sickness is spreading physical sickness and is placing a tremendous strain on our health care system.

#11) Last year, MySpace representatives and law enforcement officials worked in conjunction and were finally able to announce that approximately 90,000 sex offenders had been identified and removed from MySpace. 

#12) Authorities estimate that there are well over 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in the United States today. 

#13) Today, there are over 750,000 registered sex offenders living in the United States, including nearly 400,000 involving crimes against children 

#14) Authorities also estimate that about 95% of all teenage prostitutes were sexually abused as children. 

#15) According to researchers, convicted rapists in the United States report that two-thirds of their victims were under 18 and 58% of those said their victims were 12 or younger.

#16) According to one major study, one out of every four married men in the United States confesses to having at least one extramarital affair.That's just those who will admit it.

I won't go into detail here, but the Antichrist is called the "Beast" after Satan indwells him (Rev. 17:8). Antichrist will be wounded in the right side and die, but will come back to life with the aid of the False (religious) Prophet (the Pope) and is described as "the beast that was, and is not, and yet is," implying that he was alive, died, then was brought back to life. (Revelation 17:8) But he leaves his home nation (Mystery Babylon) to join a 10-member group of nations (ten horns) some time later, and makes plans with this alliance to destroy his former home. I am convinced that means he will leave the United States to become the Secretary General (or King) of the United Nations. There simply is no other organization today with the reach and influence of the United Nations. It is the only truly worldwide power in existence. But it has yet to flex its muscles, because the Church is holding it back (II Thessalonians 2:3-10). Christians in America are fighting hard to keep their sovereignty and avoid the destructive push to acquiesce to the U.N. in forcing international laws on all Americans which will supercede US jurisprudence. Resistence to the farce of a "U.N. carbon tax" on all Americans is one such example. There are others. Look for that to change very soon. To confirm my contention, the United Nations has recently divided the world into ten economic and geographical areas. (see below)

And the world's financial systems revolve around www. Did you know that www in Hebrew is 666? That's right. Hebrew has no numbers so they utilize letters to represent numbers. Vav is the letter W which corresponds to the number 6, ergo 666 = www or World Wide Web and it is the system described in Rev.13:15-18. It is how the Antichrist and False Prophet (the second beast) will control world commerce.

SOME LITTLE KNOWN FACTS ABOUT YOUR PC:

While still working for the startup game company Atari, the inventor of the personal computer and co-founder of Apple Computer Company, Steven Jobs, was deeply effected by his journey to India in 1974 to seek spiritual enlightenment. He'd developed an interest in the life of Maharaji-ji who mentored a well-known devotee named Richard Alpert. Alpert would later find fame in America as Baba Ram Dass, and author the seminal book 'Be Here Now.' Jobs had read the book and was greatly impressed, so he went to India looking for someone to guide him in the ways of enlightenment hoping to meet the Indian Guru Maharaji-ji. When Jobs finally made it to the Baba's ashram (spiritual abode) he discovered the maharajah had passed away. Baba, in Hindi, means 'father,' or 'wise old man.' Jobs later said, "We weren't going to find a place where we could go for a month to be enlightened. It was one of the first times that I started to realize that maybe Thomas Edison did a lot more to improve the world than Karl Marx and Neem Karoli Baba put together." Maharaji-ji, also known as Neem Karoli Baba, was a devotee of the Hindu deity Ram, oddly enough. He also openly experimented with LSD, according to Richard Alpert, former Harvard professor of psychology who admitted to having had sexual escapades with his male students.

"...It was one of the first times that I started to realize that maybe Thomas Edison did a lot more to improve the world than Karl Marx and Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaji-ji) put together."

For most of his life Mr. Jobs continued to pursue "prajna," a Sanskrit word used in Hindu and Buddhist philosophy meaning consciousness or wisdom, a form of cognitive understanding of the nature of reality achieved through meditation and mindfulness. It is said that Jobs had an epiphany of knowledge while in dream states which led, in large part, to his creation of the personal computer. Along with Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, Google’s Larry Page and Jeffrey Skoll, co-founder of eBay, have also made the pilgrimage to Kainchi Dham ashram (hermitage or retreat), home to their mystic theosophy of life on Earth.

Other notable Eastern mystic proponents include Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, a turn-of-the-century genius (a Vaishnavite brahmin - the largest Hindu denomination) who is said to have been 100 years ahead of his generation in mathematical understanding. Ramanujan, a devout Hindu, cryptically wrote down functions he said came to him in dreams revealed by the goddess Namagiri. Many of his theorems are now the mathematical power behind several 1990's disciplines in astrophysics, artificial intelligence, gas physics and string theory, and is known to have been instrumental in the mathematics of the modern computer. Many of his equations were written down in chalk on the floors of a local temple to sexual pleasures while he was in a trance-like state.

: Sadhus (holy men) Vaishnavite Yogi in Nepal, India. To see more strange mystics go
here. You'll see plenty of those who choose to harm their bodies through extreme denial (purification). The Bible tells us the body is the temple of God and should be respected and nurtured. Christians eat meat because the Bible tells us it's proper. That animals were placed here for our enjoyment and use. Hindus, however, worship many animals, particularly the Brah- man bull, because it's believed to be a reincarnation of a God (Nandi). Meanwhile, the people in the streets are left to starve.
Some "God" eh?

Vaishnavites, like Saivites, believe that "there is only one Supreme God, who simultaneously permeates all creation and exists beyond it, being both immanent and transcendent." Vaishnavites (aka Vishnuites) believe in the existence of many lower Gods under the Supreme One, estimated at over three million separate entities. Basically, they are a religion of earth worship: which explains why so many on the Left are enamored of "saving the Earth" rather than souls. Our Bible acknowledges only one Triune God known as Yahweh or Jeshua. We are not Gods, but creations of Almighty God. In Hindu tradition, a Yogi is someone who has attained "God realization" thus, claiming that highly evolved humans (Brahmin) can attain Godhood through acts on Earth. The Bible, on the other hand, teaches that no man can earn his way to heaven; it is a free gift from God alone (Ephesians 2:8-10) which you can freely receive if you repent of (turn from) your evil ways and truly believe that Jesus is His only begotten Son. It's a matter of a changed heart, not the good works you do.

Below is a map of the world, divided into the ten political/economic regions, which the United Nations and the Club of Rome call “The Ten Kingdoms.” The Club of Rome is basically the U.N.'s think tank. These 10 kingdoms play a major role in the End Times scenario that the apostle John is describing in Revelation, as we shall see. I got the map below and its accompanying data directly from the Club of Rome website in 2012, but they have since changed their website and omitted the map from their database. Please trust that this information is true and accurate even though we can no longer give you its link online. You can download a B&W .pdf file of an excerpt from the report here which includes a map, if you choose.

If you want to see another 10-region division of the world by the United Nations you can go here to page 55. Note they don't include a region called the Middle East, but have relabeled this region Western Asia." Interesting. You'll also see that the grouping called "developed regions" include the Capitalist nations of the world. A different take, but still a 10-grouping division of our planet by the U.N.

To give a little background, at this point, we need to see what the archangel Gabriel revealed about our world in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a captive in the prisons of ancient Babylon around 600 B.C. Their King Nebuchadnezzar II had been given a frightening vision in a dream of a massive statue which caused him great fear. The king challenged his own soothsayers to interpret the meaning, but they were feckless. Then someone told him about a certain man named Daniel who was allegedly close to God and might give the king an answer to the meaning of his perplexing dream. After a meeting with the king occurred Daniel asked if he could "sleep on it" and ask his God for an answer. That night Daniel was visited by the archangel Gabriel in his prison cell. Gabriel revealed the answer to the king's vision by describing the graven image and gave its meaning. Here is some of what he revealed: The fearful image was made of different materials and each represented
