                                                    America is New Jerusalem and New Zion

We find allegories being used all through the Scriptures. No one has a problem with Juda being called a lion's whelp; (Genesis 49:9)  Zebulun as a foal and an ass's colt; (Genesis 49:11) Issachar as a strong ass; (Genesis 49:14) Naphtali as a hind {A red deer ‑‑ one that is fully grown}; (Genesis 49:21) Joseph as a bough {branch or limb of a tree}; (Genesis 49:22) Benjamin as a wolf; (Genesis 49:27) All the tribes as a lion; (Numbers 23:24; 24:9) Gad as a lion; (Deuteronomy 33:20)  Dan as a lion's whelp; (Deuteronomy 33:22) Jesus as a Lamb; (Throughout the Book of Revelation)  Israel as a speckled bird; (Jeremiah 12:9) A nation of the East as a ravenous bird; (Isaiah 46:11) Preachers as fishers; (Jeremiah 16:16)  Pharaoh King of Egypt as a young lion and a whale (Ezekiel 32:2) and Herod as a fox. (Luke 13:32)

There are many more allegories which could be presented but we believe this should suffice. Was any of these men such an animal or thing? Of course not! It is simply a description of the characteristics of these separate individuals. Then we have the false doctrine of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Herod described as Leaven. (Matthew 16:12) When the word "lion" is used for Judah, we are trying to really emphasize the strength of Judah.

When we use the word "serpent" we think of something sly, wicked, evil, cunning, something that hides from us, has venom, that is strong and dangerous. That is why the word serpent is used many times as an allegory in the Scriptures. Thus we can clearly see that it is not at all unusual for a word to be used to illustrate something more impressively. And that is what we are talking about.

Serpent: Strong’s #5175  nachash (naw‑khawsh'); from #5172 nachash (naw‑khash'); a primitive root; properly, to hiss, i.e. whisper a (magic) spell; generally, to prognosticate: KJV‑‑ X certainly, divine, ENCHANGER, (use) X enchantment, LEARN BY EXPERIENCE, X indeed, diligently observe.

Brown-Divers-Briggs Definition: #5172  nachash‑to practice divination, to divine, to observe signs, TO LEARN BY EXPERIENCE, to diligently observe, to practice fortunetelling, to take as an omen (Piel)

1) to practice divination

2) to observe the signs or omens

Most Christians do not have any trouble with any of these in the various verses of Scriptures, therefore you should have no trouble in understanding what is being presented in this study. The house of God was first located at Shiloh: "...the house of God was in Shiloh." (Judges 18:31)

Then in the Book of Psalms we are told that God forsook, or left Shiloh: "When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men." (Psalm 78:59-60) So we can clearly see that God in His wrath left Shiloh, and He would never return there, nor to the tabernacle, which was located at Shiloh.

Therefore, it is amazing that the so-called Judeo-Christian preachers will never allow God to leave Jerusalem; which He clearly said that He would do. "But go ye now unto my place which 'was' in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel. And now, because ye have done all these works, saith the Lord, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but ye heard not; and I called you, but ye answered not; Therefore will I do unto this house (the Temple at Jerusalem), which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place (Palestine, Jerusalem and the Temple) which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh." (Jeremiah 7:12-14)

The Bible says to provide a double witness to a thing, therefore, for a second witness: "Then will I make this house 'like Shiloh,' and will make this city (Jerusalem) a curse to all the nations of the earth. (Can there be any doubt that Jerusalem is becoming a curse to all the nations, with the damnable Jews, who - according to Christ are the children of Satan; there and their plans for world conquest, and their efforts to make Jerusalem the capital of the world?

The Jews who are NOT Israelites, but are the enemies of Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the True Israelites - for have they not been so bloodthirsty and thieves that they have been driven from every country on earth at one time or another, and sometimes several times) So the priests and the prophets (false priests and prophets, the Judeo-Christian preachers and prophets of that day and time) and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the Lord.

Now it came to pass, when Jeremiah had made an end of speaking all that the Lord had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people took him, (See how the priests and prophets, which we call pastors, ministers, preachers and etc., today can control the people and cause them to do things that are against the Word of God) saying, Thou shalt surely die. Why hast thou prophesied in the name of the Lord, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate without an inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of the Lord." (Jeremiah 26:6-9)

This is very very clear, and to deny that God would leave Jerusalem and Palestine is an effort of intellectual dishonesty. (Have you ever thought about it: If the Jews god is the same one as the Christian's God, then why do they object to prayer to God in the schools?

The answer is given in a 1960 court case by a Jewiss Lois N. Milman, if Christians would only listen and observe! Jewish pupil objects to prayer in schools. Jewess Lois N. Milman, objected to discussing God in the Miami schools because the talk was about "A God that is not my god." (How true this is) In a court suit she also objected to "having to listen to Christmas carols in the schools." (L.A. Times, July 20, 1960) Of course God would keep His word as He gave it to Jeremiah, and history proves that He did exactly as He said He would.

We are told: "Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, (Here it is plain for all to see that the brethren spoken of is the house of Israel, the True Israelites and not the Jews. That the Jews are telling the True Israelites that Palestine and Jerusalem is now theirs) are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem (the Jews) have said, Get you far from the Lord: (Strong's #1168, which means Satan, who is the Jews god) unto us (Jews) is this land (Palestine and Jerusalem) given in possession." (Ezekiel 11:14-15)

For a second witness: "And the glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which is on the east side of the city. Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me. Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that the Lord had shewed me. The word of the Lord also came unto me, saying, Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house. Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house. Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity. Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby. In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel. And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight. And in the morning came the word of the Lord unto me, saying, Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou? Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them. Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity." (Ezekiel 11:23-Ezekiel 12:11)

Here we have God testifying that He is leaving Jerusalem and will never return, just as the True Israelites will do. They would be carried into captivity and their way would be hedged up and they would never return to Jerusalem or Palestine either. Just as God told them: "Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime." ; (2 Samuel 7:10) "Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning." (1 Chronicles 17:9)

So it is very clear, that God would remove Israel to another country or place, not in Palestine and that would be their home, and Palestine and Jerusalem would be left for the Arabs who are the descendants of Abraham through his Egyptian wife Hagar.

But for some reason the Judeo-Christian preachers of today, completely ignore these verses. Of course, we know the reason they ignore them is because of their fear of the Jews, that, and they have stupidly accepted a 501-C(3) tax designation that places the church under the control of the federal government.

But the Scriptures, clearly show that the fearful and cowardly cannot enter into God's Kingdom, so they are, because of their fear losing their chance to enter therein. "But the fearful (those that are afraid, apprehensive, fainthearted, scared, etc.), and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8)

Now for one other witness: "Thus saith the Lord God; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession: Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God: Because they have made you (Palestine and Jerusalem) desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people (the Jews who without a doubt, and cannot be disputed that they are talkers and are an infamy to the world): Therefore, ye mountains (nations) of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God; Thus saith the Lord God to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about; Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea (the Jewish Encyclopedia says that Edom - Idumea, is in modern Jewry), which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey." (Ezekiel 36:2-5)

Now let us turn to America and New Jerusalem. In the Book of Micah we find he wrote of a Place called Zion. "Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, (Not the old Zion in Palestine, but the daughter, A New Zion) like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon." (Micah 4:10)

Now turn to Zechariah where we find: "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon." (Zechariah 2:7) Most Christians who attend church, or listen to the television evangelist are familiar with the name Zion. They preach about it; there are songs in the song books about it; and almost every mention of it is about a beautiful, peaceful and serene place where anyone, not just Christians would desire to go. But here are two passages of scripture where Zion is a place of turmoil and pain; a place that is in need of being freed or delivered from something Called Babylon.

The Clergy of Organized Religion has told Christians hundreds of times over the years that Zion along and New Jerusalem are Bible names for Heaven. But these teachings become more and more false as we find passages in the scriptures where it is told that both Zion and New Jerusalem in trouble. Which presents an interesting question: How could Heaven be in pain, travail or trouble?

However, all of these scriptures become clear and more understandable when one realizes that the names Zion and New Jerusalem are in actuality the names of the Nation of Regathered Israel. "And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast FAR off (Israel) a strong nation: and the Lord (Jesus Christ) shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever." (Micah 4:7) Some of the scriptures we will study are about events which have already taken place; some of them are about events which are happening today; and some of them are about events which will happen in the future. Also in previous chapters we have proven to any who are not Spiritually Blind that America is the "Strong Nation," the Nation of Regathered Israel and is both Zion and New Jerusalem!

So you should begin to see, it is America who has gone "even to Babylon," and "dwellest with the daughter of Babylon." In other words America has come under and is even now being controlled by this anti‑God, anti‑Christ, anti‑Christian world powers, spoken of and known in the scriptures as Babylon in both the Old and New Testaments. And what we see happening in America is exactly what was written in God's Holy Word. Now let's return to Micah: "But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain (nation) of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains (the greatest most powerful and blessed nation of all the nations), and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people (Israel) shall flow unto it." (Micah 4:1)

Please keep in mind that in Bible prophecy mount or mountain stands for a great nation or a great world power; and hills represent lesser or smaller nations or countries. To demonstrate this turn to Jeremiah where God condemns the nation of Babylon and He said; "Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain (nation)...and I will...make thee a burnt mountain." (Jeremiah 51:25) So here in verse one of Micah chapter four as in Isaiah verse one chapter two we find God saying He will establish the mountain or the Nation of the house of the Lord in the top of the mountains or nations.

In other words above the other nations of the earth. So now you can also see and understand that whenever we read the term "the house of the Lord" where it does not mean the actual Temple or the place of worship: It always stands for the House of Israel. For they are God's house, the people of Israel where God would dwell. "What! know ye not that ye are The Temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16) "for ye are the Temple of the living God." (2 Corinthians 6:16) "And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain (nation) of the Lord (the regathered nation of Israel), and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he (Christ) will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem." (Micah 4:1‑2)

This is not speaking of heaven spoken of so often by the Clergy; but is obviously of a place on The Earth where the people of the world could come and receive instruction and to be taught the Law and the Word of the Lord. Micah then goes on to say; "And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more (the end of war or the age of peace). But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it. (This appears to mean the end of oppression and crime upon the earth) For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, (Here it appears that even while Christ is on His Throne those people who are outside of Zion and New Jerusalem will worship gods other than Almighty God)  and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever. (It sounds like Israel is living in a perfected kingdom) In that day, saith the Lord (What day? It is obviously in reference to a day among the last days as spoken of in verse one. Therefore, from verse six onward this is ALSO something that will come to pass in the Last Days)." (Micah 4:3‑6)

Turning back again to Micah we have seen that the kingdom would be restored after Israel had been regathered and made a strong nation, and known as the Mountain of the Lord, or Zion or Jerusalem. So when we read in Micah Chapter Four that God would assemble her that halted; gather her that was driven out; that was cast far off a strong nation, we are reading one of the prophecies which was fulfilled in the bringing of our Anglo‑ Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred people to North America; in breaking the ties that bound them to the old country and constituting them a new nation, in one day, July 4, 1776.

The ones who came to America were called a remnant by Micah, or the "turned ones" we would know them today by their "new name" of Christians. Other prophecies tell us that the Israelites who would found Zion and New Jerusalem would be Christians. Prophecies such as that found in Jeremiah: "Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding." (Jeremiah 3:14‑15) This was fulfilled, in America, by (Israelites) who, at its beginning, had the promised Godly Pastors.

In Jeremiah Thirty One the "remnant" or "turned ones" are prophesied to be regathered in Zion. "For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God. For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company (Here we can see that a remnant Can Be and indeed is A Great Company) shall return thither. (In the next verse is PROOF that Israel regathered would be believing Christians when they came to Zion). They shall come with weeping, and with supplications (to ask for something by earnest prayer) will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way (in other words He would give them the Word of God in Truth), wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn." (Jeremiah 31:6‑9)

We also have God's Word in Isaiah; "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; (and following is who and what they would be) Even every one that is called by my name (Christ(ian): for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." (Isaiah 43:5‑7)

Now we have come to verse 9 in Micah Chapter Four; what do we find? Trouble and pain. "Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail." Here is this Great Zion Nation where Israel has been regathered. It is in existence. It has been promised a Kingdom. And now the whole complexion of the prophecy changes to a woman in pain and travail. Verse 10: "Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail (the phraseology would indicate that something was about to be born): for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies."

Babylon, here, obviously is an enemy of Israel, because she is promised to be delivered from "the hand of thine enemies." In order for Zion to need to be delivered from her enemies it would necessary for Israel to be in the clutches and under the control of her enemies; that is the logical interpretation.

What does it all mean? It means that sometime after a remnant of believing Israelites are regathered, and after they have been made into "a strong nation." That they will be taken captive by their enemies. Their nation, the Zion of Bible prophecy would be the captive of Babylon. Zechariah said Zion would dwell with Babylon and would have to be delivered. Isaiah called Zion "O captive daughter of Zion." (Isaiah 52:2) And here we see that Micah writes quite plainly that Zion, the great nation of regathered Israel would be taken captive of something, called in the Bible ‑Babylon. We have now seen that prophetic Zion is a nation, one which we claim is America.

Now we will try to reveal just what that Babylon and what being captive of it is, and just how it has taken control of this great Zion nation, the United States of America. It is in all likelihood that many of you readers have never thought of America being in captivity. But most of you do know something is wrong, for we certainly are in pain and labor and recent years have proven that the American people have little or no control over their own government.

Therefore, we present you with this question: Is it possible that something, called in the Bible, Babylon, has secretly taken over control of the reigns of our government? If we, the United States, is Zion, and we know that to be true, then Babylon MUST be here too. The prophet Isaiah wrote much about Zion and Jerusalem and most of his words to and about it are positive; they are filled with hope and with promise. And many of the passages in Isaiah have been used as the foundation for songs about Zion. They have been used also to create songs about Heaven.

Isaiah 52 is one of the chapter directed directly to this entity called Zion. "Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean."

This can be directly compared, and often is, with the 21st chapter of Revelation; about the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven. and verse 27 reads, "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

This seemingly, absolute restriction, on who may enter New Jerusalem is part of what has convinced some of the Clergy of Organized Religion; That New Jerusalem is really Heaven. And that only "dead" Christians may have entry there. And we will admit that Isaiah 52 seems to begin with the same absolute restriction on its inhabitants, by saying, only those who may enter are those who have been circumcised and have been made clean.

In the context of the New Testament that would mean entry would be restricted to only Christian believers. Whether living or dead is not the point here, but they seemingly would have to be scripturally circumcised and scripturally clean.

God goes on is Isaiah, speaking to this Zion, to which the uncircumcised and the unclean will be prohibited entry, in verse 2, "Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion." Here the prophet is talking about this beautiful Zion in verse 1 and then in verse 2 he refers to bands on her neck which must be loosed and then calls her "O captive daughter of Zion." Now listen to verse 3, "For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money."

So Zion, called in verse one Jerusalem of the beautiful garments, the Holy City and a place where the uncircumcised and the unclean will be refused entry. That Zion is a Captive! She has bands on her neck; she has been "sold." The Zion we are reading about here may seem to be a new one to many, for most, like many of us in the past, have always been taught by the Clergy that Zion was Heaven itself. A beautiful city of gold; the place where Jesus would dwell and rule His Kingdom and that beautiful place where all Christians hope to go when their final days on this earth have come to an end.

We, like you have never been taught about Zion needing deliverance. We have never been taught about Zion needing deliverance, nor have you ever heard about Zion being a place or something which might be captured by something else. Yet when one actually reads the Word of God for himself instead of just listening to the Prophets of Baal, the Clergy of Organized Religion, all sorts of new things come up, which we have never heard before.

We have already made the statement that this Zion is not the Heaven of the Church World. But it is instead a land, a place of the earthly regathering of the Israel Race. That the prophecies and the description of this Zion fit the United States of America as they fit no other land on the earth. Much less the Bastard State of Israel in the Middle East, which is proving to be more and more like the Nazi's the Jews have presented to the world since World War II. There can be no doubt: America is this New Jer - USA - Lem and New Zion of Bible Prophecy!!! Our Anglo‑Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people who are the True Israelites, have been gathered here from the north country and from the coasts of the earth. God took our forefathers, one of a city, and two of family and He brought them to Zion.

God did in America exactly, what He said He would do with the Israel People when He regathered them in their own land. He made them a great a mighty nation, the greatest and most mighty nation that has ever existed in all of the history of the world from its foundation to the present time; Above all the other nations which are upon the face of the earth. But God also warned that even though Israel was placed in Zion, they would turn away from hearing His Word and would become captive of their enemies, from which they would have to be delivered.

We believe that America is under that power today and has been since sometime between 1895 and 1899. We have been conquered by an alien race which is robbing and destroying our people. None can, truthfully, deny that the symptoms of captivity are present in the United States, but many will deny the actuality of it. Now we must repeat again and again, because it is so hard for many Christians to understand: The Zion of Bible prophecy is not a place of perfection. At least not in its early stages.

We have just read where Isaiah has called it "captive daughter of Zion" and said it had bands on its neck, that it had been "sold" into captivity and had to be delivered from its enemies. Well that seems to be what Micah is writing about here also in verse 9 of Micah chapter 4, "Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished?" Now Israel has had many kings and counsellors but usually when the prophets speak of one king of Israel, they are speaking of Almighty God. And here counsellor is in the singular "is thy counsellor perished?"

If you will remember that beautiful prophesy of Jesus in Isaiah Chapter 9 you will see what this probably means. Isaiah 9:6 reads, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder (and that would mean that He, Jesus, would be king over Israel): and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."

So there you have it: Jesus is Israel's King and Jesus is Israel's Counsellor! And here in Micah, God asks Israel in Zion, why are you crying aloud, don't you have a king and a counsellor. He is, in effect, asking Israel; Is your troubles so bad that you think your Savior, your King, your Counsellor is dead?

Take a look at America today. Millions of our people are grieved, frightened and angry about what is happening to their beloved nation and are crying about it. We are being destroyed with crime, with corrupt politicians, with corrupt manipulators of business and stocks; we are being disarmed in the face of an ever increasing threat from the communist nations.

Sovereign parts of our nation are being given to other countries by criminals and agents of the enemy in our government. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being forcible taken from our citizens and given, unlawfully, to foreign nations who are in reality enemies of our country. They take other billions of dollars from our workers and are supposedly spending it upon education, health, welfare, military, highways, crime and thousands of other schemes to eliminate our problems.

And to what end? The problems continue to grow and multiply at an ever increasing rate. It is almost as if the money serves as a fertilizer and stimulates the growth of the problems, just a it does to plants, rather than bring an end to them. But to whom do the robbed and plundered people cry out to? Of course; To the government. And God says, "alright Israel in Zion, you are in trouble and I hear your cries. But is your King gone, is your Counsellor dead? Why do you not cry out to Me."

God goes on in Micah 4:9‑10, "for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail. Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail." Here God is telling Zion to go ahead and suffer the pain, for these are labor pains of birth, this turmoil, this corruption and these things which the people fear are all signs of something being born. He then goes on, "for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field." Here the Zion of prophecy is apparently going to be given into the control of Babylon of Bible prophecy.

Now let us repeat here, this was not a prophecy which was fulfilled when Jerusalem was conquered by Babylon in 500 plus B.C., and taken captive for seventy years and then released. It is true that Micah lived and prophesied about two hundred years before that captivity, but several things preclude its fulfillment in that old Babylonian captivity of so long ago.

Number 1, the term used for the time of its fulfillment in verse 1 is "in the last days."

Number 2, the sequence of events, the captivity of this Zion would happen after Israel was regathered.

Number 3, reference to the kingdom being given to, or coming to, this place of Israel's regathering. Here called Zion.

According to Jeremiah and Hosea Israel actually lost the kingdom when she was divorced by God, at about the time this prophecy was written. And she did not, and could not have been given the kingdom again in old Babylon.

In Acts 1, several hundred years after that first seventy years of captivity in Babylon the disciples asked Jesus, "wilt thou at this time Restore (here we can clearly see that the disciples knew that The Jews were not the legitimate heirs to the kingdom) again the kingdom to Israel (here again the disciples are saying in effect The Jews are not Israel!)." (Acts 1:6) So the kingdom had not yet been restored to Israel at the time of Christ. It must be restored later. Then we have the rest of the verses in Micah chapter 4 which when read cannot be fitted in with that old Babylonian captivity.

Now let's read on in verse 10, "and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies." Zion will be saved and redeemed while she is a captivity of this prophetic Babylon. verse 11, "Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion." When Jerusalem was taken captive by Babylon several hundred years before Christ only one nation came against Jerusalem. But this prophecy, says at this time "many nations are gathered against" her. And they said, "Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."

Those of you who are crying aloud over what is happening to America; What is it that the un‑Americans, the anti‑Christians are doing to this country if it cannot be described as, defiling her. America is being defiled by the deliberate destruction of her morals, by filthy movies and magazines, by drugs and alcohol whose use is promoted by the movies, by television, by music and by all sorts of devious means. By homosexual and lesbian concept being pushed upon our people and told that it is legitimate and normal actions of men. By disrupting our educational system and bringing confusion into it to the extent that our own children are being prevented from learning to read (This because people are more easily manipulated if they cannot research for themselves the truth of a situation or concept being presented to them).

By graft and corruption of politicians at all levels of government. By all sorts of crime, from petty theft to the swindling of thousands of people out of millions of dollars in land fraud, stock manipulations, insurance schemes and etc. Then by not punishing the criminals, but release them back into society to continue their criminal ways, so as to disrupt and demoralize the lives of honest citizens. By convincing our people that "over population" is a great danger, so a to promote the reduction in the White Race through birth control and abortions: The Murder of the Unborn!

By increasing our taxes and deflating our currency, which creates fear in the elderly and disabled who are trapped on fixed incomes. And destroying the incentive to work in the younger. They are trying to build up in our people a fatalism that our Race must give up everything we have, or ever hope to have to aliens, to foreign nations, and to even our enemies who hate us and would destroy us if they only could. It is as if this alien force in America is saying, "Let us all get together and let us defile America."

Which is exactly what God said that the nations would do the Zion of Bible prophecy. That they would gather against her and say, "let her be defiled." Then they would say, "let our eye look upon Zion." The United States of America is perhaps the most looked upon, spied against nation in all of human history since the beginning of time. But listen to what God says in Micah 4:12, "But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel."

In other words, they do not know what God has revealed in His Word, the Bible, of His plan. They only know of their own. "...neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor." Here is the command to Zion at the very height or depth, as it may be, of her captivity, verse 13, "Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth."

Now this is quite a switch in just a few verses don't you think? All the way from God's Israel people in Zion, in captivity, being almost in total despair; perhaps even to the point of thinking that God is dead and cannot save them, and to the time their enemies are being destroyed and being gathered as sheaves into the floor.

This sheaves into the floor phrase also fits the prophecy of Joel when he describe the last battle upon the earth as being fought "in the valley of decision.(This is the Hebrew word "charuwtz or charuts" which means "threshing" #2742 Strongs Exhaustive Concordance)" (Joel 3:14) Therefore, the prophet is talking of a "valley of threshing." In Isaiah forty one God says at the end of the age He will give Israel a new threshing instrument having teeth, "Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains (nations), and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff." (Isaiah 42:15)

Several prophets and Jesus called this final destruction of the wicked on the earth; "the time of the harvest" (Jeremiah 51:33); "he hath set an harvest for thee" (Hosea 6:11); "the sickle, for the harvest is ripe" (Joel 3:13); "and in the time of the harvest" (Matthew 13:30); "the sickle, because the harvest is come" (Mark 4:29); "the harvest of the earth is ripe." (Revelation 14:15) Then in Matthew 13 where the tares are gathered out of the kingdom Jesus says of the wicked, that the angels would, in verse 30 "bind them in bundles."

Now let us continue on with our study of prophetic Babylon; what it is to be and what it is today. And we believe that we can identify this Babylon just as we have identified prophetic Zion and prophetic Jerusalem to be the United States. America, where true Israel has been regathered and blessed by God. So will we be able to recognize that which has taken our great nation captive by the reading of the Bible Scriptures of that thing called "Babylon," which was to take Zion captive. And we propose to prove to you that that capturing power, called "Babylon" is the anti‑Christ world power of which our Ministers speak so much about, and which is always way off in the future somewhere.

While telling all the Christians that they are going to be "Raptured" off into never never land where they will not see tribulation, where they will never be ruled by that power anyway, never realizing that they are seeing tribulation NOW at this very moment in time:

That our nation has been taken over completely by the so‑called anti‑Christ who is ruling our nation and the world from behind the scenes now; it has brought violent death to millions of Christians who were not "Raptured" and who is killing more all the time; And still our Ministers keep looking for the Rapture which will never come. They have been blinded by their own Baal Doctrines and cannot see nor hear the truth; there hearts have been hardened and Paul spoke in truth when he said, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four‑footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." (Romans 1:18‑32)

That anti‑Christ power is here; it is already in existence; it already rules the world and has brought violent death to at lest two hundred million (200,000,000) in just this century alone. That "Red" anti‑Christ power seized absolute control of Russia at the end of World War I. Nikolai Lenin (1917‑1924), Aleksei Rykov (1924‑1930), Vyacheslav Molotov (1930‑1941), Joseph Stalin (1941‑1953; General Secretary of the Communist Party, 1924‑1953), Georgi Malenkov (1953‑1955), Nikolai Bulganin (1955‑1958), Nikita Khrushchev (1958‑1964), Leonid Brezhnev (1964‑1982), Yuri Andropov (1982‑1984), Konstantin Chernenko (1984‑1985), and Mikhail Gorbachev (1985-1990) Yeltsin (1990-Present 1997) the current visible ruler of Russia and their henchmen have killed twenty million (20,000,000) or almost fifteen percent of Russia's population within the first twenty years of their takeover.

Since that time the Communists have killed another ten to thirty million more; not counting the millions killed in the conquest of their satellite nations. New information on China now indicates that the Red anti‑Christ killers have killed in that country almost one hundred and seventy million Chinese since 1949, when the Communist to over control of that country.

Now we ask the question: What power is it that is over our government which causes us to send billions of dollars in military and economic aid these murderous butchers? It now appears that we are going to begin sending aid to Vietnam and Cambodia, countries who are killing their own people at such a rate that the merchant ships of the world avoid the coasts of Southeast Asia so as to avoid being swamped with the hundreds of thousands who are fleeing for their lives. The human tragedy of the Communist rule in the various countries of the world is almost beyond description and yet our government continues to send them aid whenever they request it. Even to the point of denying our own American/Israel people.

What is it that is bringing such tribulation upon the people of the world and yet be hidden from our so‑called "Ministers" the Clergy of Organized Religion? What is it that rules the world so completely that even non Communist countries cooperate in every way with this mass execution of people who do not wish to live under the Communist rule?

Can you not see? This could only be possible if the anti‑Christ system, that our so‑called "Ministers" tell us is to come at some future time, were, and now are, in absolute control of all the governments of the world at the present time! Many use the book of Revelation, especially the vision of the woman of chapter 17 riding upon the red beast, which the angel revealed to John in 17:18 as being, "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

They also use the second chapter of Thessalonians where it speaks of Christ's return, and says in verses 3 and 4, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped."

This they say is the prophecy of one man who will be worshipped or obeyed by all the people of the earth as the god or supreme ruler of the entire planet. In verses 8 and 9 it says, "then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders." These passages and a number of others make it quite plain that there will be a power which will rule over all the earth sometime Before the return of Jesus. And that that power will be destroyed when Christ returns.

The controversy between so‑called Ministers is not over whether the Bible prophesies of such a power, but as to whether that power will be in existence and the ruler of the earth while Christians are still upon it. Many insist the anti‑Christ power will come into existence only after Christians have been raptured away into Heaven. But some believe current and past history provides us with all the evidence necessary to prove that power is here NOW and that it does rule; and that it accounts for the great tribulations in which the earth is currently under going. As part of the more visible evidence of that power, one has only to point to the complete control, which is openly anti‑ Christ the Red Bolsheviks have over a large number of the nations of the world; their partial control on many others and their hidden control which they exert upon the rest of the nations of the world. And of course do not forget the more than 100,000,000 million victims of the Red Communists in just the past 75 years.

Notice in 2 Thessalonians it speaks of a time when that man of sin will be revealed. It does not say; "when that man of sin comes."  Which imparts the implications that the man of sin is already here; will be ruling and then at some later date he will be revealed. And to whom is he to be revealed? The Saints? If the prophets of Baal who inhabit most of the pulpits of America today are correct the Saints will be already raptured out, and if they are gone who will care if that man of sin is revealed? "Mystery Babylon The Great, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth." Is described in Revelation 17:18 as, "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth," is just such an entity. A ruling power that is a mystery. In other words, a ruling power that is concealed from most of the people of the United States and the earth.

Many of us believe "Mystery Babylon" is that great anti‑Christ power which the Clergy of Organized Religion expect in the future, but we believe that it is already on earth and very much alive and is already controlling most of the nations of the world, including the Great Zion Nation of America.

Now let us turn to Second Thessalonians to see if the Son of Perdition, like Mystery Babylon will be here on earth and be identifiable before the return of Jesus Christ. This chapter, or rather bits and pieces of this chapter is used by the Clergy of Organized Religion in their Rapture Theory, about how that the Christians are supposed to be snatched off the earth by Christ, at which time the world and all of the non‑ Christians will be left to a time of great tribulation. Under one man, called the anti‑Christ, who will then rule the world. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,"

So Paul does begin this chapter by making reference to the return of Christ and to the gathering of the saints to Jesus which will take place at that time. With that we have no argument, for we believe that when Jesus comes, there will be the resurrection of the dead, which is meant here by the phrase "our gathering together unto him." Paul then goes on, still beseeching them, "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." Paul is saying, in effect, "Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that the return of Jesus is at hand, at that time." Paul was writing this about thirty years after the Resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, which was over 1900 years ago. He said, at that time, the return of Christ was not eminent, no matter what anyone else said. Verse 3, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for (because) that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."

Then the next verses describe, "That Man of Sin."

However, before we continue on, let's recap just what Paul has said. We will say it in our own words and you see if this is not what he said, only in other words, "I beseech brethren, that ye be not fooled into believing that the return of Jesus is near or eminent. Because, that day of Jesus' return, will not come until a certain thing takes place. And what is that certain thing, that must take place before Christ's return? Of course, that man of sin must be revealed or made known. Let no man deceive you by any means, that day shall not come except there come a falling away first, and that Man of Sin be revealed, the Son of Perdition."

Do you understand? Do you realize that tens of thousands of Ministers in America, the Clergy of Organized Religion, have been trained in the Seminaries to teach to you, that this Man of Sin, will be revealed only after the Christians have been Raptured from off the earth? And yet right here in the very chapter they quote; at its beginning, it says quite plainly, that The Man of Sin Will be Revealed Before Jesus' Return!

One can argue as to what or who the man of sin is. Some insist, it is one man; others say, "No it is government system which is anti‑Christian"; others say, "No it is something within a person, that is your own carnal spirit, referring to the phrase 'mystery of iniquity' in verse 7 of 2 Thessalonians Chapter Two." And many of us have heard all those explanations and more, but regardless of what you believe the man of sin is; Verse 1 through 3 states specifically and plainly that he will be revealed before Jesus' return.

There is another phrase in verse 3 that we probably should examine while we are here. That phrase is, "except there come a falling away first." The Greek word is "apostasia" or in English "Apostasy." (#646 Strongs Exhaustive Concordance) We usually hear the phrase "Great Apostasy" from our Ministers who point to all those masses of people who don't belong to that Ministers’ particular congregation or denomination. And they say, "See, look at all those other people they don't believe as we do, therefore we must be in the 'Great Apostasy,' and Jesus must be coming soon. Some of us have heard this for years and in many cases the smaller the sect or denomination the more fervent the preaching, that the world is in a great falling away ‑ the 'Great Apostasy.'" Thus, Jesus may come tonight, or next week or some time soon. But they do not realize, or ignore, that the "Apostasy" involves the revelation of the "man of sin." Not just the return of Jesus. So regardless of how one interprets; What is the "Great Apostasy?"

If so many not believing just as we do proves a "Great Apostasy," or whether so few attending any Christians Church proves a "Great Apostasy," or if the many divisions, in the Church, proves "Apostasy." What ever it is, it must be connected with the revelation of the man of sin before the return of Jesus Christ.

We have no argument with those who say there is a great falling away in Christendom. In fact part of the evidence that there is a great falling away from the truth, is the tremendous number of professing Christians who believe in the false doctrine of the pre‑tribulation Rapture. We believe that the entire so‑called ecumenical movement, and the national and World Council of Churches, are themselves a great falling away from the truth of Jesus Christ.

The ecumenicalists are of all sects of Christianity joining with the sects of the other religions and treating them all as co‑ equal. God never treated the false religions of devils and demons as being equal with His Word. So Ecumenicalism by definition is a great falling away. But our disagreement with those who teach that the return of Christ is eminent because there is a falling away, is that they forgot to add that with that falling away must come the revelation of the man of sin.

And we must repeat again and again that this passage of scripture does not say anything about the "coming" of the man of sin, for the implication is that he is "already" there, but is hidden and must be exposed or revealed. Then when he is revealed or made known to the people then and only then follows Jesus' return. Many teach that this man of sin of Second Thessalonians Two is just another title for "their" great anti‑Christ. This one man they say will take rule over the earth after the Christians are all Raptured away.

After the Rapture Doctrine became common fifty to seventy five years ago many began to speculate as to who the anti‑Christ was. In the 1920's and 1930's they named Joseph Stalin or Benito Mussolini as the anti‑Christ. Thousands of tracts and books were written and published about those two men. Then with the rise of Hitler others began to name him as the great anti‑ Christ.

However, the death of Mussolini in 1945 ended their speculation on them, but they continued with Stalin. Then Stalin died, so a few began to point their finger at Mao Zedong (translated into English and known as such to most Americans as Mao tse Tung) of China. But most, by that time, having learned their lessons with the deaths of Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler began to teach just anti‑Christ. Thus eliminating the necessity of naming a man who might die before their false teachings were fulfilled; So they did not attempt any longer to identify him with any known world figure. That way they could still teach their "Fairy Tale" of false and damnable heresies and not be exposed for the liars and hypocrites they are, when their particular anti‑Christ passed from the scene.

Oh, there are some today who still attempt to get ahead of the world and make their own personal identifications of the anti‑Christ. Such as the story which has been circulating in the Christian World for several years now; that the anti‑Christ has been born in Egypt and is just awaiting the proper time to come forth and reveal himself. Boy what a bunch of bologna. This so they can later say, supposedly in Heaven I told you so! When that certain one is revealed as the anti‑Christ. But they are all making the same error.

The Bible teaches no such thing as one individual anti‑ Christ. John is the only writer of the New Testament who uses the term, in his Epistles, and he wrote them some 1900 years ago, and he said, "and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists...Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist (so anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ is an anti‑Christ), that denieth the Father and the Son." (1 John 2:18‑22)

Then John says, "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is in the world (It should be obvious to any thinking Christian that John is here relating that he is speaking of a RELIGIOUS SYSTEM which is Judaism(It should be obvious to any thinking Christian that John is here relating that he is speaking of a RELIGIOUS SYSTEM which is Judaism)." (1 John 4:3)

Then John speaks once more concerning this spirit of anti‑ Christ when he said, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. (Can there be any doubt that John is talking about the Jews and their religion of Judaism. Because they have ever denied that Jesus Christ came in the flesh) This is a deceiver and an antichrist." (2 John 7)

Therefore, we can clearly see that when John gave the definition of an anti‑Christ it was anyone who denies the Lord Jesus Christ and that He came to earth in a flesh body, and was the Son of God, dwelt among us. That such a person or religion is, in fact, anti‑Christ. Which should identify to Christians that there are millions of anti‑Christs in the world. But upon close study it will be found that only one religion is truly anti‑Christ by definition, and that religion is Judaism! No, The Anti-Christ is not just one individual man and possibly neither is the man of sin as spoken of in Second Thessalonians Two. The man of sin is a prophetic entity just as the woman in scarlet in Revelation seventeen, is not just one individual woman, but a prophetic entity, so is the man of sin.

Now let's read a few descriptive phrases of that man of sin. Then we will present you with some thoughts that might be quite different than you have ever considered before, about what the "man of sin" could be. And how this prophecy about him could be fulfilled and is perhaps being fulfilled right now at the present time.

While most of the world, in fact, most of Christendom is ignorant of its fulfillment. However, the people of Christendom, of course, will eventually be apprised of its fulfillment. They will have to be so that he can be revealed to them, so that the prophecy can be completely fulfilled.

In verse 3 he is called the son of perdition. The word perdition is the Greek word "Apoleia" which means "destruction." (#684 Strongs Exhaustive Concordance) So in other words the "son of perdition" is the "son of destruction" or the cause of destruction.

In verse 4, "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

This phrase "sitteth in the temple of God" has fooled many. Since all Bible Students and Ministers know that there is no stone Temple of God anymore as the Romans destroyed the one in Palestine in A.D. 70, some have tried to say, "this cannot come to pass until someone rebuilds a stone temple, to God in Jerusalem again." Which in itself opens up all sorts of speculations about how the Jews will rebuild the old temple and then this great anti‑Christ will come and sit in it; and take over the rulership of the world, and be worshipped while he is in that great new temple.

But what is the Temple of God? What could truly be called the Temple of God by Paul, a Christian Israelite, writing to the Thessalonians. Well, every Israelite should know, but most do not. "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile (which is the Greek word 'Phtheiro' from 'Phthio' which means 'to ruin' or 'destroy' (#5351 Strongs Exhaustive Concordance)) the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are." (1 Corinthians 3:16‑17)

Then we find, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost." (1 Corinthians 6:19) Then in Second Corinthians Six Paul is exhorting believers to separate themselves from unbelievers and from infidels as he writes, "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God." (2 Corinthians 6:16) Then he explains, "as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them."

Paul is quoting God's statement to the Israelites through the prophets Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and others that God would dwell in Israel. Today, we have so little preaching on the true identity of Israel that most do not realize that God does really "dwell in Israel." Most Christians realize they cannot say in truth that God dwells in Palestine, or among the people called Jews because the Jews reject Jesus.

And to say that God dwells among them would fly in the face of New Testament teachings. So most Ministers ignore the multitude of promises and prophecies made by God to Israel, That He would always be the God of Israel and that He would dwell in and among them. They do see that God is in Christendom but they do not relate that to the truth; that these Anglo‑Saxons, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred Christians: Are Israelites. In Ephesians, speaking of the whole congregation of believers collectively as the household of God. Paul says, "In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit." (Ephesians 2:21‑22)

So the Temple of God is in a partial sense each individual believer. In a collective sense, the whole household of Christian Israel. With this in mind we then ask: Where would the man of sin sit; Where he would masquerade as God and be worshipped, as God, in the Temple of God? It is obvious, that he would sit in the hearts and minds of a deluded and deceived Israel People, who think they are worshipping the Divine One, when in reality, they are worshipping an entity called in Second Thessalonians Two "that man of sin...the son of perdition."

The man of sin could be, and you think carefully about it and see if it makes sense to you. The man of sin could be a false Christ. Remember that Jesus warned in Matthew Twenty Four when the disciples asked about the signs of the end of the world (age). Jesus said that many would come in His name, or in the name of Jesus Christ and would deceive many. He also gave as another sign in verse 24, "that there shall arise false Christs."

This character in Second Thessalonians Two is called the man of sin. The word sin means the transgression of the law, according to 1 John 3:4. So the man of sin is therefore, a man of transgression of the law. If a person, professing to worship Christ claims that "his" christ has put away God's Law and that there is no need for him to obey the Law, then he is believing in and worshipping a christ of sin.

A christ of transgression of the Law, or a "man of sin." Consider it another way. If a person believes that "his" christ is going to come and snatch him off the earth and take him to heaven, and then turn the earth over to the wicked; And if that is false doctrine, a lie, and it can be easily proven so, then that person believes in and worships a Jesus who is NOT the real Jesus of the Bible.

He is worshipping a false christ, one who has attributes which the true Jesus does not have. And one who is to do things which the real Jesus of the Bible will not do. He is, in deed, and, in fact, worshipping a "man of sin." And that man of sin, that false god is in that person, in the Temple of God and is being worshipped as God.

To fulfill Second Thessalonians Two there is no need to for any one person or any false god to go into a Stone Temple over in Old Palestine. Second Thessalonians Two can be fulfill by the simple fact that thousands or millions of God's people worship as God, someone who is not the real Jesus. Paul gave in 1 Corinthians 10:12 a warning to Christian Israelites, "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."

We implore you, today, to examine your Christ. Is He the one of the Bible, or is He a false Christ? Put into your mind by false prophets teaching false doctrines. Are you worshipping the true Jesus of the Bible or are you worshipping the man of sin? Thus, as many of you know, Babylon is a false religion. And if any part of our people are captive of, or under a false religion, a false Christ, then they are captive of Babylon are they not?

But repeating again, our major interest in spending this time on Second Thessalonians Two, was to prove to you that whatever, or whoever the man of sin is he must be revealed. He must be exposed, he must be made known to God's people before Christ's return.

Now let us return to exposing what it is which has captivated our people; religiously, economically, politically, socially and in all phases of our national life. It is called in the Bible "Babylon." And it is described so that we can see it and understand it. In Micah God said Zion or end time Israel, in her new land, would be held captive under Babylon. Then in Revelation 15 and 16, we saw that Babylon was to be divided into three parts. And we believe, that great city, which reigneth over the kings (governments) of the earth is something which rules the rulers of the earth; obviously from behind the scenes, but is the ruler nevertheless. And it is obvious, that for this prophetic Babylon to capture prophetic Zion; Prophetic Zion MUST of necessity be on the earth, not in some faraway Heaven. For we absolutely refuse to credit some earthly power with being strong enough to threaten the Heavenly abode of Almighty God Himself.

Therefore, The Zion of Prophecy is a place Here on the Earth. And we have previously identified that prophetic Zion as Christian America. When the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, in Revelation 16:12, it was followed by the three unclean spirits (three parts of Babylon) in verse 13. Which went forth in verse 14; "unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty."

In verse 16 the place of their gathering was a place "called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." Then as John saw the gathering of the kings of the earth, but before the battle, in verse 17, he saw as "the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air." and followed in verse 18 by "voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great." Then finally "great Babylon" is mentioned. For the first time in this long passage and only the second time in the Book of Revelation. Its previous mention was in Chapter 14:8.

Here in Revelation 16:19 it says: "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath." This implies destruction in part and perhaps in its entirety, but in any case God's wrath is shown here to be directed against "great Babylon." It would appear obvious that this "Babylon" is currently in existence on the earth now and we believe the earthquake which divided Babylon into three parts has already taken place. That it is past history and that it was not a physical quake of the planet earth as some teach.

In Revelation 17:18 the angel told John Babylon the great is "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." And to put it another way, great Babylon is the Ruler of the Rulers. And just before it is destroyed it will be divided into three parts. Which we have already described as being (1) Russia and its control in Asia, Eastern Europe and parts of Africa. (2) China and its sphere of control in Asia, including India, Southeast Asia and parts of Africa. (3) The Western Hemisphere and Western Europe with the rulers of the United States being the dominating force in those areas.

However, the co‑operation of these super powers is still mostly hidden from the view of the people of the world. But millions of Americans are beginning to suspect that the great words of criticisms and anger, which pass publicly between three governments, and which is so prominently displayed in the news media are really all part of a staged show for the people's consumption.

Many now suspect that the rulers of America only pretend enmity towards the rulers of Russia and China. And that the rulers of Russia only pretend enmity towards the rulers of China and the United States. For they are beginning to realize that there is no major activity by any of the three governments which are in anyway damaging to the rulers of the other two governments.

Although thousands, yes even millions of people die in so‑called wars between these super‑powers, such as Korea, Southeast Asia and now in several wars in Africa and South America. The ruling powers of these three major governments remain intact and grows ever stronger, but never weaker.

Think about it, although some seem to be at cross purposes with others and even carry on so‑called wars with each other in which their own people are killed the men who make up those ruling governments remain untouched. During Korea have you never wondered why, if America wanted to defeat the enemy, would it allow one of its greatest Generals to be sent home just because he was in the process of defeating the enemy? General Douglas MacArthur was not under the control of the American President while he served in Korea.

He was under the control of the United Nations. And it was they who fired him and not President Harry S. Truman. He was fired because he broke the back of the North Korean Army when he launched the Inchon Harbor invasion. And he could have destroyed the invading Chinese Army with just one atomic bomb.

Oh one could say well we could not use the bomb because our men were too close to the blast area. Well tests were even then taking place in New Mexico with American troops much closer to the blast area than they would have been in Korea. The bomb would have saved thousands of American and other nationals soldiers, putting the Communist expansion plans back a hundred years and maybe more. Perhaps even destroying it one and for all.

Who was so powerful that they could control our military to such an extent that they could actually cost America thousands of its best men in a no‑win military action? Who kept our navy and air force from destroying the enemies war making potential and food supplies? That the United Nations rules over the United States would be obvious to the American people if they would only think about what has been told them by men in government. Even the various Presidents such as Truman and etc.

President Truman in 1951 after he announced the war in Korea and moved our American troops there, announced to the people of the United States that the United States was fighting a war (police action) under the orders of the United Nations.

When General MacArthur, other military leaders and several Congressmen called upon the President to carry the war into North Korea and defeat them and end the war. President Truman informed them and the people of America he could not do such a thing because he had to obey the mandates of the United Nations. That this was a "United Nations Police Action." In other words the President of the United States was admitting that he had a ruler above him. A ruler that he was required to obey. And he admitted it, although most Americans did not understand nor realize just what he was admitting to. Twelve years later when President Johnson ordered several hundred thousand American teenagers to be shipped to South Vietnam, to begin a war there, he stated publicly that we, American troops, were going to South Vietnam to carry out the terms of the SETO Treaty. The full name of which was the Southeast Treaty Organization, a branch of the United Nations.

The American military was ordered to fight, to kill and be killed, but never to win under orders from the United Nations. Two hundred and fifty thousand American men were killed or maimed for life in Southeast Asia during that insane United Nations Controlled war.

Who gave the orders that prevented them from winning, and in many cases, from even defending themselves unless they were fired upon by the enemy. Well most Americans believe that it was President Johnson and later President Nixon, but what was the original source of the orders: The United Nations, something that rules, quietly from behind the scenes, almost all of the nations of the world, in including our own.

Recently Americans were surprised to see their own government, or at least what they believed to be their own government, transfer American Territory, the Panama Canal Zone, to a Communist dominated foreign government; Panama. What they did not realize that the U.S. had not controlled the Panama Canal for many years. For if America had really controlled it during the Korean and the Vietnam Wars, would it have made sense that the American Government would have allowed cargo and war ships of their enemies to pass through it.

Yet, that is exactly what happened. Russian, English, French and others ships regularly passed through it carrying war supplies to the North Vietnamese Army to kill our American Men, during the Vietnam War. Not only that, the United States Government was ordered by the United Nations not to blockade the only sea port in North Vietnam, that being Haiphong. And the U.S. rulers obeyed those orders! Scores of American Battleships and several Aircraft carriers sat out in the China Sea off Vietnam for eight long years during the war, prohibited by United Nations orders from firing a shot or interfering with Any ship bringing food and war materials to North Vietnam.

Oh, they made a pretence of mining the harbor, but were soon forced to remove the mines by other orders from the United Nations. Several multi‑national gas and oil companies sold gas, diesel and other fuel along with munitions to both North Vietnam and the United States and delivered their products in time of war without interference from either side!

During the Vietnam war literally thousands of American ships docked in Saigon and at Da Nang, and at any one time from a dozen to a score of them would be in the harbors. Although the Viet Cong guerrillas had 120 MM Russian rockets, which they launched with regularity into the residential areas of Saigon and Da Nang, from the Mekong Delta; not once did those rockets strike any of the ships docked in the harbors of Saigon or Da Nang. Not once did any of those rockets strike the hundreds of warehouses that were used to house the war supplies. Not once did those rockets strike any of the United States or South Vietnam Government buildings in Saigon, nor did they strike any of the Oil storage depots.

Those Russian made (and American taxpayers financed) Vietnamese rockets killed only American soldiers and South Vietnamese civilians. But the supplies to carry on the war had safe passage and safe storage afforded by both sides. Who was it that commanded the Viet Cong not to hit the ships in the Saigon or Da Nang harbors or docks, or any of the government buildings, nor any of the oil and gasoline storage depots? Was it the same ones who ordered the American forces to not strike the North Vietnamese harbor, docks, government buildings, nor any of the gasoline storage depots, nor any of the ships that were bringing war supplies to the enemy?

Who was it that commanded the American Air Force not to use the carpet and systematic bombing which proved so successful during World War II against the Germans? Who was it that commanded the American Air Force not to bomb the dams in the northern part of North Vietnam which would have destroyed completely the food supply for the Vietnamese Army and the North Vietnamese people, thus making it impossible for them to carry on the war, which would have saved countless American lives? Who was it that ordered the American Air Force to bomb the jungles and mountain sides which inflicted minimal casualties upon the enemy? In ten years of warfare only ONE U.S. Government building was damaged, and that was during the Tiet Offensive, and by only 10 Viet Cong who were quickly rounded up and killed. Thousands of United States Government officials walked the streets of Saigon for ten years almost at will and the Viet Cong guerrillas left them strictly alone. During that same time the Viet Cong killed tens of thousands of American Troops. And this, almost unbelievable condition continued for almost ten years. Yet the mental condition of the American people, is such, even today, most of them do not realize that such a condition could exist only if the rulers of both sides had a prior agreement as to who or what could, and who or what could not be destroyed before the conflict was even begun.

Who was it that commanded to kill only U.S. soldiers and not U.S. Government officials? Was it the same power which prevented the American Air Force from bombing North Vietnam? Was it the same power which, even today, prevents America from protecting itself from the holocaust of a future war.

The news media which reflected the dead and wounded on our television screens every night, and pictures on the front page of our newspapers every day, of almost ten years of that war have very little time, if any, to depict or report upon the terrible butchery which the liberals of America caused to be inflicted upon the people of South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

They never, but never, showed pictures of people killed by the Communist butchers, but they wring their hands and cry out to high heaven whenever a Communist or some other enemy of America is killed, and depict it has a heinous crime against humanity, if an American happens to come out on top of a conflict with them.

It has been reported that almost 500,000 million Africans have been killed by the Communists and Cuban troops in Africa, and a picture of the deaths of these who have been murdered by them is almost never shown on an American Television, magazine or newspaper. But if an American or White South African happens to kill a Communist in defense of his life, family or property, it is in every newspaper, magazine and on every television set in America.

Russia, Cuba and China operate at will in Africa and what is the United Nations doing about it. Well a spokesman for the United Nations announced that they would impose an oil embargo upon South Africa, but not one single peep about any sanctions or embargoes upon Russia, Cuba or China. The United Nations in its some 47 years of existence has yet to inflict a single incident or action that has resulted in a detrimental action against the rulers of the Communist Nations. Oh, there have been literally millions of people killed in so‑called anti‑Communist conflicts, but there has been nothing that has happened that would interfere with the actions of the rulers of the Communist Nations at all. But, in fact, its every action has been against every country or government in the world that would not bow its knees before the great god of the Communists/Zionist/Jewish one‑worlders; The United Nations.

It is even know working day and night against the only nation left in the world who opposes its domination of the world and its countries, that country is South Africa. And American foreign policy is being directed toward that same end. To the overthrow of White South Africa, while ignoring and openly aiding Russia and China in their assault of the other nations of Africa. The three parts of Mystery Babylon are operating in concert, and the cities of nations are falling, just as the verse said. And the islands and the mountains (nations) are disappearing. Is it possible; that there is more to the United Nations than we have been led to believe? But instead is a visible part of an otherwise invisible world‑government, which already controls almost every country and ruler on the earth.

Is it possible; that if we could we see the rest of the this control force and mechanism, we could then read the rest of Revelation 17 and 18 and say: "Eureka, I have found it, I have found Mystery Babylon the mother of harlots and the abominations of the earth."

Is it possible; that pro United Nations propaganda and church doctrine, such as the Rapture theory and the future anti‑Christ, are really falsehoods of Babylon designed to cover‑up the truth of an existence of anti‑Christ world government already exists. And to keep her hidden from those she has captured already and those she is about to capture. In the second chapter of Zechariah the prophet tells of seeing an Angel with a measuring line, who said that he was measuring Jerusalem. In Revelation 21, where John saw a vision of what he called the New Jerusalem, said in verse 15, "And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city."

Other similarities in the two visions that one can see that both men were writing of the same Jerusalem <New Jerusalem> Prophetic Jerusalem, and not the old historical city. That New Jerusalem was a land, a great nation, to be inhabited by the regathered tribes of Israel, is made plain in such verses Zechariah 2:4, where we read, "Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein."

In the first chapter God says in verse 14, "I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy." Then in verse 17, "My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad." In chapter two verse 6, God said of this Jerusalem; "I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven."

This was fulfilled in the driving out of the Israel people from Old Canaan Land several hundred years before Christ and their dispersion into the then vacant continent of Europe where they were to become the great nations of Christendom. When they were scatter over Europe they lost their name of Israel and later became known generally to historians as Isaac's Sons or Saxons. With divisions such as Angles, Celts, Germans, Scandinavians and other kindred people.

As you read the foregoing and the following exposé you will come to understand that we believe that the Israel people have been regathered right here in the United States and that America is the city and the nation called by the name of New Jerusalem and by the name of Zion in prophecy. Of course many of our Israel people still live in England, the Western Nations of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada. That they have been here off and on for thousands of years in response to God's Word in 2 Samuel 7:10, and 1 Chronicles 17:9.

But we are now primarily concerned with the prophecy that this New Jerusalem, this Zion of Bible Prophecy, would be captured and conquered by an alien force or power, called in the Bible ‑ Babylon.

In the very next verse in Zechariah two God speaks to this New Jerusalem, "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon."

And in Micah four, verse 10 God said to Zion, "thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies." These and many others make it plain prophetic Zion would be captured by prophetic Babylon.

Now lets go on in the Book of Revelation and see if we can recognize Mystery Babylon the Great from the descriptions as shown in chapter 16, 17 and 18. We finished through verse 20 of Revelation 16 where Babylon was divided into three parts and the cities and the governments were falling. And every Island fled away and the mountains were not found; This is symbolic language for countries and nations. They are disappearing as independent states and are being absorbed or swallowed up into one or the other of the three parts of Babylon; One part of Babylon represented by Russia, which rules Western Asia and Eastern Europe is at this moment waging war against several parts of Africa at this very moment; Whether the American people are aware of it or not. Meanwhile Red China, a second part of Babylon is solidifying its control upon the sub‑continent of Asia. With Hong Kong soon to become part of China again as England has agreed to give up its control of it in the very near future. The third part of Babylon, the Western European Nations, including the United States is co‑operating completely with those conquests.

Verse 21 is a strange one, "And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great."

This vision that John saw is often taught as if it will be real hail; frozen water which will fall from heaven. But remember, although John may have seen hail stones in the vision, like the other parts of his visions, each of these things was representative of something else.

The previous verses about the islands fleeing and the mountains not being found, certainly is not going to be fulfill by real islands getting up out of the water and running away on supernatural legs. Nor by the disappearance of all the mountains on the earth. No, islands and mountains in prophecy stands for small and larger nations. And water in the Bible represents the Word of God, or the living water which would come from Christ.

In Ephesians 5 Paul writes of Christs love for the Church in verses 25 and 26, "Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word."

Gods' Word washes and cleanses people, but in Revelation 16:21 that water is frozen; it is in the form of hail; it cannot wash, it cannot cleanse, it can only cause hurt and cause immense pain. And many of the doctrines and teachings of Organized Religion today is like frozen water. Although they quote God's Word and present it as God's Word, they are handled deceitfully and in error; it cannot be drunk, it cannot be absorbed and it is in a form which brings about blasphemy against God.

Now it says that these hail stones fell upon men from heaven, which would indicate that God was the source of them, and it is true that Almighty God will send false doctrines to men who will not accept His Truths. Second Thessalonians 2:10‑11 reads, "because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie."

And it is obvious to any that will only open their eyes and see that many are being sent strong delusions; for many do believe lies and many do blaspheme God. So the hail of Revelation 16:21 would be, in effect, God's Word being rained upon wicked men in such a way that they will not believe it nor understand it; But instead blaspheme God.

To show that this is true, we have an example in Matthew 13 where Jesus told His disciples that He taught in parables so that some people would not understand Him. Now, there is one remedy for the frozen Word: Get away from Ministers who freeze or hide God's Word by mis‑teaching it. God's Ministers are to make the Word plain and teach it in truth. Paul said in Hebrews that God's Ministers are to be made, "a flame of fire," (Hebrews 1:7), and Fire will unfreeze God's Word.

Let's go on into the next chapter, Chapter 17 of Revelation. Please remember that these chapter divisions were not in the original text. The text was first divided into chapters and verses when the Geneva Bible was translated in the fifteen hundreds and it was done so for ease of reference. So Revelation 17 is a continuation of Revelation 15 and 16. The vision of the seven angels with the seven golden vials of God's wrath to be poured out upon the earth. After John saw the hail, we read in Revelation 17:1, "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters." The angel is now going to show John the judgment, or the punishment, or the end of the great whore. Called in verse 5 "Mystery, Babylon The Great." Remember, Babylon the great whore is already here when these things are going on. John does not see Babylon arriving upon the scene. In fact, if you will check quite closely you will find that the Book of Revelation does not announce the arrival or the rise of Babylon at all.

Only what she is doing and her end. So she is not something that arises on the scene during the seven last plagues she is already there when the scene begins. The angel said to John, "Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." Here again is being demonstrated the utter impossibility of these visions being fulfilled literally. We will not be looking for some woman, dressed in red, riding upon a red beast having seven heads. No, this is symbolic for something else. "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Revelation 17:4‑5)

And now we wish you to listen, and read very very carefully to the next verse. Especially those of you who have been taught that Christians will not be on the earth when these last chapters of the Book of Revelation are being fulfilled. Verse 6 of Revelation 17, still speaking of the woman arrayed in purple and scarlet ‑ MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."

Now that last word there does not mean that John looked upon her with favor, as the original Greek word means to look closely or to be in awe. And we can imagine that if we had seen such a vision that we would have looked upon it in awe also. But the woman was drunk with what? With the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.

Whatever this woman in scarlet is She is a Killer of Christians! That is obvious because she is drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. This woman arrayed in purple and scarlet to be judged here, during the time of the seventh vial or the last plague upon the earth, was seen by John to have killed so many Christians he could describe here in no other way than to say that she was drunken with their blood. In verse 18 the angel told John, "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth." So we can see clearly that she is the world ruling power. She kills Christians and in the last verse of Revelation 18, after she is destroyed, God says; "And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth."

Now we have said several times that this world ruling power called Babylon is here on the earth today. It is not some future thing! She is already working her awesome murders upon the Christian people in most of the nations of the earth. And she is guilty of the death of not only Christians but of the death of all that has been slain upon the earth. That God's people would be in Babylon, captured by her as it were, is obvious by the call of God to his people in Revelation 18:4, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Which produces the following question: Why would God be so foolish as to call for His people to come out of Babylon, in Revelation 18, if the ministers, the Clergy of Organized Religion are correct in their Rapture Doctrine, when they say all the Christians will be gone when these passages are fulfilled? No, God's people have not only been captured by Babylon, as we read in Micah 4:10, but Babylon is responsible for  the death of many of them.

Let's recount a little history, actually recent history, which has occurred in the lifetime of the older people, and at least partiality known to all. The Red Bolsheviks (Communist Jews) conquered the 16 territories of Russia and Siberia between 1917 and 1921. By 1931 they had put to death at least twenty million (20,000,000) people, most of whom were Christians, and at least that many more were in slave camps. Every Christian Bible, to their knowledge, in Russia was burned or destroyed; every Christian Church was closed; every Christian Minister was either killed or placed in the slave labor camps in Siberia. And that process has been repeated in every nation taken over by the Communist, although it has not been reported upon by the Jew owned news media in America. The same people who claim their color is red, just the color of the woman and the beast in Revelation 17 and 18.

The Christians in Russia were not Raptured; the Christians of Armenia, Azerbidjhan, Byelorussia, Georgia, Kazakh, Kirghy, Ukraine, Uzbe, Turkmen, Estonia, Latvia, Lithunia and none of the subsequent nations taken over by the Communist were Raptured; the Christians of China were not Raptured, nor were the some ten million (10,000,000) Protestant Christians murdered by the Roman Catholic Church before and after the inquisition were not Raptured. It has been admitted by at least one of the Clergy of Organized Religion that most of the Christians of China have been murdered. The Christians of Cuba were not Raptured, however, some of them did escape in small boats before Castro's power become complete.

During the Vietnam War another war was began and ended in Africa with little if any American news coverage. The war against the Ible Tribe by the Nigerians. Britain, Russia and the Jewish Israelis armed eighty thousand (80,000) Nigerian troops and in two years they had killed or starved to death one million (1,000,000) of the six million Ible people. Our rulers and our news media remained silent as did most of the radio and television preachers.

When it was almost over, Newsweek Magazine ran a one page article on it, casually commenting upon the one million who had died, and saying that the Ibles were the ONLY Negro tribe in Africa who had adopted Christianity as the official religion of the tribe. Just think of it, one million Negro professing Christians slaughter by arms from a combination of Britain, Russia and Israel and most Americans never even heard of it!

At the end of the Vietnam War when the red butchers of North Vietnam swept in upon the helpless people of South Vietnam and Cambodia refugees who escaped later told of the systematic murder of every individual who was a Christian and everyone who, to their knowledge, had been friendly to a Christian or Christian Missionaries.

In the first weeks, after the Communist takeover, red murder squads went into every Christian orphanage in South Vietnam and shot to death every baby there, to eliminate what they called contamination. As you know, thousands of South Vietnamese did escape by themselves, or with the Americans in those last desperate days of the collapse of South Vietnam. In America many Ministers did join together in a relief effort to provide food and clothes for the refugees.

In many cases they even helped bring them to America and settle them here. Strangely enough, or perhaps not so strangely even while some were helping Christian refugees from the Communist slaughter, others went right on preaching about how American Christians would never suffer such things, but would be Raptured off the earth before any tribulation came. As Jesus said in Matthew 6:23, about such men; "If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!" Being blinded by their own false doctrine, they could not see the tribulation being enacted right before their eyes. And still the slaughter and the horror in Southeast Asia goes on without abatement, without comment by the American news media, the American Government or the American Clergy of Organized Religion.

Lord Elton, British Tory spokesman for foreign affairs, stated in the English Parliament; "Of all the regimes which the fugitives left behind the most ferocious is in Cambodia. In 1975 the country had seven million (7,000,000) inhabitants and since the Khmer Rouge took over more than one and one‑half million (1,500,000) have died of execution or starvation." He further said; "The policy is the destruction of all ties with the past and with the outside world except China."

Vietnam has since found out the same thing. The so‑called Communist conquest was in actuality a conquest of Red China, one of the parts of Mystery Babylon. Who is ruling America? Is it the people of America? Or has the United States, unknown by its citizens, been captured by that thing known in the Bible as Mystery Babylon? Since 1918 the Red anti‑Christ have almost swept parts of Asia and Eastern Europe clean of Christians.

They are now working to either kill or drive out all of the Christians in Africa. Aided in their criminal pursuits by the rulers of our own beloved America. And still the teaching of the Rapture grows and spreads. It is almost unbelievable to those of us who study God's Word and recognize from it the present tribulation which the blind cannot see. But think God, as we read Revelation 17 and 18 we are not reading of the rise of this great anti‑Christ world power, we are reading of its judgment or its end, its total destruction. And as Babylon become visible to our people, they will be seeing its termination, its final death throes. As God moves to bring it to judgment and destruction.

In fact, all of the Bible teaches it will be the wicked which will be removed from the earth, not the Christians or the Saints. The so‑called Rapture Doctrine, like all false doctrines has the truth turned upside down and backwards.
