PROPHECY IN THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT

In May of 1948 Winston Churchill and Konrad Adenauer met at the Hague with others to conduct a meeting with the aim of integrating the economies of post-war Europe calling "for a United Europe" and established an "advisory consultive body of ten (later fifteen) states, the Council of Europe, as a parliamentary assembly at Strasburg."(1)

In March of 1957 The Treaty of Rome was signed,
which established the European Economic Community (EEC), better known as the Common Market. The EEC treaty, with 572 articles over almost 400 pages,... looked forward to eventual political union in Europe, and sought economic integration as an essential step on the way. The project originated in the head of the French economic planning commission, Jean Monnet, whose ideas were pushed along by the energy of Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak of Belgium. Within the three large nations (Germany, France and Italy), agreement was obtained by the efforts of the leaders of the respective Christian-Democratic parties: Adenauer, Schuman, and Alcidi de Gasperi. The Catholic religious background of all three was a significant factor in their willingness to turn from nationalistic to international economic methods, while Spaa's Socialist prestige helped reconcile the Left to the scheme.

This treaty established the methods and time schedule by which the signatory countries, as well as other nations that might wish to join, could integrate their economies into a single, more expansive, system. Tariffs and other restrictions on trade between them were to be abolished by stages and replaced by a common tariff against the outside world. This whole process was to be achieved by stages over many years.(2)

The institutional organization for carrying on this process was:
a European Parliamentary Assembly of supranational party blocs of Christian-Democrats, Socialists, and liberals sitting and voting together irrespective of national origins; a Council of Ministers representing the member governments directly; an executive High Commission of nine that is enjoined by law to "exercise their function in complete independence" of their national governments; a Court of Justice with powers to interpret the treaty and settle disputes; two advisory groups (the Monetary Committee and the Social and Economic Committee); a European Investment Bank to channel funds for integrative and development purposes within the Community; the Overseas Development Fund ....; a European Social Fund for industrial retraining and unemployment compensation...

These organizations have some of the aspects of sovereignty from the fact that their decisions do not have to be unanimous, are binding on states and on citizens who have not agreed to them, and can be financed by funds that may be levied without current consent of the persons being taxed. On the whole, the supranational aspectsof these institutions will be strengthened in the future from provisions in the treaties themselves.

This process will lead to the
disintegration of the modern, unified sovereign state and the redistribution of its powers to multilevel hierarchical structures remotely resembling the structure of the Holy Roman Empire in the late medieval period.(3)

These multilevel hierarchical structures are exactly what is being implemented now in the western hemisphere between the United States, Canada, and Mexico. See Reality Check.(The previous article)


Daniel's Dream of Four Beasts


In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind as he was lying on his bed. He wrote down the substance of his dream.

Daniel said:'In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.

The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle.

And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear.

After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard.

After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast-- terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns. Daniel 7:1-7 NIV

He gave me this explanation:'the fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. Daniel 7:23 NIV

What is the meaning of Daniels vision?

Tim Lahaye tells us in Revelation Unveiled:(4)
Daniel's four beasts in chapter 7 represented four future kingdoms, beginning with the lion, which represented the Babylonian empire. Then he saw a bear which represented the Medo-Persian Empire, followed by a leopard representing the Grecian Empire, and a nondescript beast, portraying the Roman Empire. These four animals, representing the four world kingdoms, are most interesting, for no world powers have existed other than the four described by Daniel, who wrote at the beginning of this chain of conquests.
.
John's Vision


"And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear, and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority." Revelation 13:1-2 NIV

John pens his description when the last governmental beast is in control; therefore his description is in reverse order(of Daniel's description). Whereas Daniel began with the lion, John ends with the lion. Because these two prophets lived 600 years apart, Daniel was looking forward to what would come to pass in relationship to these world kingdoms, but John is looking backward, for the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, and Roman Empires have already appeared on the world scene.

The late Dr. David L. Cooper noted that the symbol of the beast can either refer to a king or his kingdom depending on the Holy Spirit's point of view. Some details about this beast can only apply to an individual, whereas others apply to his kingdom. We find that the beast opens his mouth and speaks blasphemy, indicating a reference not only to a kingdom but to a specific personage.(5)

We learn from Revelation 17:9-10: "This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads"(Revelation 13:1-2) "are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he will remain for a little while."

Some have suggested that since the city of Rome is built on seven hills that she is the one designated here as the beast with seven heads and by extension therefore the Roman Church.

However Tim Lahaye believes and states that
The seven heads of this beast are mentioned in Revelation 17:10 as kings of the Roman empire. I am inclined to believe that the first five (kings) represent five kings of the Roman empire through John's lifetime; the existing king Domitian was the sixth; thus we have the five that were, the sixth that is, and the seventh who is to come, referring to Antichrist at the end of time. [Note the gap in time "the other has not yet come"].

In Revelation 17:11 we read "The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction." This strongly suggests that the Antichrist is the seventh head.(6)
"He will remain for a little while" (v.10) "and is going to his destruction" (v.11).

Conclusion


What is the point of this discussion?

The point is that history proves the truth of Revelation. That Satan is setting up his final 10 kingdom confederation in our lifetime through actual historical figures, and organizations such as the Club of Rome, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations implementing the "disintegration of the modern, unified sovereign state and the redistribution of its powers to multilevel hierarchical structures remotely resembling the structure of the Holy Roman Empire" from which the Antichrist will arise.

Epilogue


"Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to You! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short." Revelation 12:12 NIV

REALITY CHECK


America continues it's catastrophic sleepwalk into the lion's den.

Your future has been planned for you. You are merely a numbered file in a nameless database which the government can mine at any time without your knowledge. Are you part of the matrix? All of your personal information will become available not only to the American government but also the Canadian and Mexican governments before the year 2010.

This a result of a process known as assimilation or deep integration. Please click the links above if you have not read these articles before proceeding to understand what you are about to read.

THE NEXT STEP


What's really behind our trade agreements and security partnerships with other North American countries? Have you ever asked why our politicians pushed the NAFTA, CAFTA treaties so hard? Is there more than the buzzwords "free trade" and "security" to be concerned about?

Why have governors Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Janet Napolitano of Arizona had to declare a state of emergency?

Governor Janet Napolitano says "the federal government has failed to secure the Arizona-Mexico border."(1) Why?

The reason is quite simple but hidden behind fancy words and political rhetoric(insincere language according to Webster's New Century Dictionary.)

The reason is because the federal government wants the borders to remain "free flowing" by design; to permit easy access for illegal aliens to cross our borders despite the lip-service our federal officials give to "protecting" them.

One must look to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) for the answer to the question Why?

A 59-page document recently published by the CFR and authored by Independent Task Force on North America titled "Building a North American Community,"
spells out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter."

From Eagle Forum we read:

"Community" means integrating the United States with the corruption, socialism, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada. "Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

"Community" is sometimes called "space" but the CFR goal is clear: "a common economic space ... for all people in the region, a space in which trade, capital, and people flow freely." The CFR's "integrated" strategy calls for "a more open border for the movement of goods and people."

The CFR document lays "the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America." The "common security perimeter" will require us to "harmonize visa and asylum regulations" with Mexico and Canada, "harmonize entry screening," and "fully share data about the exit and entry of foreign nationals."

The CFR document calls for creating a "North American preference" so that employers can recruit low-paid workers from anywhere in North America. No longer will illegal aliens have to be smuggled across the border; employers can openly recruit foreigners willing to work for a fraction of U.S. wages.

Just to make sure that bringing cheap labor from Mexico is an essential part of the plan, the CFR document calls for "a seamless North American market" and for "the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico."

The document's "security cooperation" includes the registration of ballistics and explosives,....

The experience of the European Union and the World Trade Organization makes it clear that a common market requires a court system, so the CFR document calls for "a permanent tribunal for North American dispute resolution." Get ready for decisions from non-American judges who make up their rules ad hoc and probably hate the United States....

The CFR document calls for allowing Mexican trucks "unlimited access" to the United States, including the hauling of local loads between U.S. cities. The CFR document calls for adopting a "tested once" principle for pharmaceuticals, by which a product tested in Mexico will automatically be considered to have met U.S. standards.

It demands that we implement "the Social Security Totalization Agreement negotiated between the United States and Mexico."

This means putting illegal aliens into the social security system, a system which will go bankrupt.

To ensure that the U.S. government carries out this plan so that it is "achievable" within five years, the CFR calls for supervision by a North American Advisory Council of "eminent persons from outside government . . . along the lines of the Bilderberg" conferences.

The best known Americans who participated in the CFR Task Force that wrote this document are former Massachusetts Governor William Weld and Bill Clinton's immigration chief Doris Meissner.

However "Building a North American Community," asserts that George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin "committed their governments" to these goals when they met at Bush's ranch and at Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005. The three adopted the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America" and assigned "working groups" to fill in the details.


Where was the "independent free press" when these goals were formulated and President Bush committed to them; to open our borders and diminish our national sovereignty?

To learn more details from this CFR Press release click here.

This is a flagrant example of the Council on Foreign Relations determining and implementing foreign policy for the government of the United States. Were these decisions based on a national referendum? Hardly. They were based on world leaders following a plan that was laid down many years ago. One that continues to drive the countries of the Western Hemisphere into a one-world socialist, occult based government that will result in a 10 kingdom world federation at the time of the appearance of the Antichrist.

"A truly global economy will require compromises of national sovereignty. There is no escaping the system." Walter Wriston, former Citicorp chairman and Council on Foreign Relations member.(2)

Indeed. There is no escape. Mr. Wriston is describing the birth of the one-world economic, political and religious system which Daniel describes for us: "After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast--terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts"(world empires), "and it had ten horns." Daniel 7:7 NIV.

"We shall have world government whether or not you like it...by conquest or consent." CFR member James Warburg, testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950.(3) Note how long this plan has been in existence.

"And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns." Revelation 17:7, KJV.

"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet;"(in John's lifetime) "but receive power as kings one hour with the beast" (Antichrist in this context). "These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast." Revelation 17:12,13 KJV "These are the ten kings who will make up the Antichrist's world confederation of nations."(4)

These passages indicate that the fourth beast, i.e. fourth world empire of Daniel chapter 7 consists of a world confederation of ten kings (10 horns) who give their allegiance to the beast(Antichrist) of Revelation chapter 17.

THE OCCULT CONNECTION


In Alice Bailey's works, "we discover references to a triangle of powers--three major centers of spiritual and physical influence--- being set up on Earth in the last days by "Sunat Kumara"--an occultic code name for Satan."(5)

This triangle of powers is in her own words "world governments, world religions, and world economics and finance." "Bailey further tells us at the close of the age, the three major Centres" (British) "will be in complete unified, and synchronized activity.(6) She has just described for us the financial, political, and religious colossus; the fourth world empire (beast) described in the book of Daniel that will be in effect in a few short years.

"Occult tradition maintains that the world prior to the flood had become unified under a system of global government based upon ten regions. This global civilization was known as Atlantis and was the most advanced occult society ever. This is why God destroyed it."(7)

He will destroy it again because of the increasing sinfulness of man. One day he will say Enough!! "It is done!"

"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." II Peter 3:10 KJV.

After this a new heaven and new earth will be established when Christ starts his millenial reign. "For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come to mind." Isaiah 65:17. KJV

THE ROLE OF THE U.S.


"I discovered that some Masons and New Agers privately spoke of the United States as the power that will usher in the "New Atlantis".(8) This statement reveals the reason why the United States and Canada are Kingdom #1 on the Club of Rome(COR) map and why our borders with Canada and Mexico will cease to exist.

This next quote is almost prophetic. Listen: "I'm doing it,"(moving to Canada) she said. "I don't want to participate in what this administration is doing here and around the world. Under Bush, the U.S. seems to be leading the pack as the world spirals down."(9) Indeed. That is the plan!.

Conclusion


Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? The time until His return is very short.

MOVERS AND SHAKERS

The initial membership list of the Club of Rome, contains some interesting names:
David Rockefeller:Bilderberger, cofounder of the Trilateral Commission, former chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, scion of the world's most prominent oil dynasty.

John J. McCloy: Former advisor to the Mussolini regime who had the honor of sitting in Adolf Hitler's private box at the Berlin Olympic games; later served as High Commissioner of Germany, during which time he signed an order freeing the majority of the Nazi war criminals that had been convicted at Nuremberg; still later, served on the infamous Warren Committee.

Averell Harriman: Skull and Bonesman and high-level political operative through several presidential administrations; together with members of the Dulles family and the Bush/Walker family, established various business entities engaged in providing funding to Nazi Germany, even after the United States had entered the war.

Katherine Graham: Longtime publisher of the Washington Post and longtime CIA asset who once famously said, while speaking at the CIA's Langley, Virginia headquarters: "We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn't. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows."

Shut off the television and do some serious investigation if you care about the future of this country. The internet has made this possible today in a way that was not possible even ten years ago.

Don't accept the explanations that the major news networks hand out as the truth. Question, investigate, read books and learn. The internet will help you do this.

The press will never print all that it knows and slants what it does know to fit the agenda established by the organizations these well known individuals belonged to.
"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
David Rockefeller at a 1991 Bilderberger Meeting.

May our Lord, Jesus Christ, guide and direct your paths as you search for truth.

"But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations." Psalm 33:11 (NIV)

"For evil men will be cut off, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land." Psalm 36:9 NIV

"Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24 NIV
