THE BIBLE EQUATES DEATH
& HELL WITH AMERICA

By: SR Shearer
December 6, 2013

"Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

"Because ye have said, WE HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH DEATH, AND WITH HELL ARE WE AT AGREEMENT; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

"... [But] your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge [ie., Babylon the Great] shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it." (Isaiah 28:15, 18)



PREFACE

As we have indicated in our previous main articles, the Bible declares that in the "end of days" America will -

"... BECOME THE HABITATION OF DEVILS, AND THE HOLD OF EVERY FOUL SPIRIT, AND A CAGE OF EVERY UNCLEAN AND HATEFUL BIRD [SPIRIT]." (Rev. 18:2)

Moreover, the Bible says that this biblical truth will manifest itself as a FULL-BLOWN reality just prior to the beginning of the Tribulation Period; specifically when Israel betrays God by looking to God's great enemy, Babylon the Great (once again, America), for its protection, and entering into a defense pact with it. The Bible calls this defense pact your (Israel's) -

  • "COVENANT WITH DEATH, and
  • "AGREEMENT WITH HELL.

DEATH and HELL are here equated with the United States.

Given this biblical truth, wouldn't one have to be stark-raving MAD to remain in America. Sadly, however, many Christians are just that; either that or they are being very cavalier with the Scriptures - most likely because the demand on them is so great.

PART 1
CONSEQUENCES FOLLOWING AN
ISRAELI AIRSTRIKE ON IRAN

Obama stabs Israel in the Back

In our last main article, "Igniting Israel's Masada Complex: Obama Stabs Israel in the Back," we asked the question: Can there be any real doubt that Obama's Mideast policies are igniting in the Jews of Israel a "MASADA COMPLEX" that will very soon set the world on fire? The answer, of course, is NO! – there can be no doubt. David DeBatto of Global Research [cited in our last main article (see above)] describes what would happen the day after an Israeli air-strike on Iran -

  • Wall Street will act as it always does in an international crisis. It will panic. Stocks will plummet.
  • Irrational speculative and spot buying of oil will reach a fever pitch and send the cost of oil skyrocketing.
  • The price of oil goes to $200.00 - $300.00 dollars a barrel on the open market. This will send the price of gasoline at the pump in this country to $8.00-$10.00 per gallon immediately and subsequently to even higher unthinkable levels. If that happens, this country shuts down.
  • Most Americans are not able to afford gas to go to work.
  • Truckers pull their big rigs to the side of the road and simply walk away.
  • Food, medicine and other critical products ... [become scarce] ...
  • There are food riots across the country.
  • Civil unrest builds.
  • THE UNITED STATES DESCENDS INTO CHAOS.

"ISRAEL WILL GET ONE SHOT AT IRAN [AND THEN] MUCH OF THE WORLD WILL GO APE-SHIT" -- LENDING CREDANCE TO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH:

"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people ...

"And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people ..."(Zechariah 12:2-4)

PART 2
PRECIPITATING A MILITARY COUP

EVICTION NOTICES SERVED ON OBAMA AND CONGRESS

CAN THERE BE ANY UNCERTAINTY?

Such a catastrophe would no doubt sweep Obama from power in a military coup presided over by America's financial elites and the Religious Right - the Religious Right acting as the coup's "MINIMUM GROUP." [Please see our article, "The Religious Right: Hungering Together with the Financial Elites for a Pearl Harbor-Type Event."]

The Religious Right today commands an astounding ONE-THIRD of the entire American population.

NOTE: A "MINIMUM GROUP" is defined by Edward Luttwak, a senior advisor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, as the minimum number of people in a given population required by the conspiracists to carry out a successful military coup.

And what is that MINIMUM GROUP that the coup leaders will count on? - it is the RELIGIOUS RIGHT. [For more information on Luttwak, please see our article, "Whether Obama Will Live or Die May Be Determined by What He Does in the Middle East and Central Asia."]

The very real fact of the matter is, the Religious Right today commands an astounding ONE-THIRD of the entire American population, and while there is little evidence that it possesses the ability to expand its popular base of "TRUE-BELIEVERS" (as opposed to occasional supporters and "fair-weather friends") much beyond this figure, that is still an astounding number of people that the leaders of the coup can count on.

In this connection, one would do well to note the fact that when Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933, he commanded about one-third of the German electorate - the same percentage of voters that the military and the financial elites now command in the Religious Right. [Again, please see our article, "The Religious Right: Hungering together with the Financial Elites for a New Pearl Harbor."]

Naturally enough, most Americans reel at the thought that a military coup could ever be carried out in the United States – despite the fact that one was clearly attempted recently by the leaders of our military. [Please see our articles "Seven Days in May" and "The Reichstag Fire of 1933 and 9-11: Portents of Things to Come."]

Most Americans reel at the thought that a military coup could ever be carried out in the United States - despite the fact that one was clearly attempted by the leaders of our military recently.

Americans think that while this kind of thing can (and does) happen in Asia, Africa, Latin America and even Europe, it could never occur in America. In believing this, however, Americans are simply burying their heads in the sand. The fact is, the elites have used illegality and murder throughout history to maintain themselves securely on the pinnacle of the American pyramid - even going so far as to murder a president; that is, after all, clearly what happened with the assassination of JFK. [Please see our article, "MK-Ultra and the Search for the Manchurian Candidate;" please also see our articles, "An Unyielding Theology of Hate" and "Conspiracy Theory."]

Insofar as Congress is concerned, there certainly wouldn't be a lot of tears shed over the demise of Congress. Karl Grossman of Newsday writes:

"... the U.S. Congress is now widely seen as deeply dysfunctional. This past summer, Gallup reported that its polling showed only 1-in-10 Americans approve the job Congress is doing. This tied with the 'all-time low' of 10 percent approval in a Gallup poll the year before 'as the lowest in Gallup's 38-year history of this measure."

Finally, can there be any real uncertainty that should there be a military coup supported by the Religious Right, the new dictatorship would move quickly to dump Obama's failed Mideast policies and rush to conclude a defensive alliance with Israel? THAT, UNDOUBTEDLY, WOULD BE ONE OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT'S CORE DEMANDS ON THE LEADERS OF THE COUP FOR THEIR SUPPORT. [Please see our articles, "An American Coup de Etat" and "Obama verses the Generals."]

THE "PRINCE THAT SHALL COME"

He is near; at the door: "Here comes Johnny" -- meaning antiChrist

The Bible describes "THE ONE" who will replace Obama: He is anything but an Obama-like figure. [Please see our article, "There Are Seven Kings."]

  • He will promote himself as Israel's champion. (Dan. 9:27)
  • He will deceive God's people (i.e., the Christians) by posing as their champion (apparently by appearing to promote their religious desires and political programs) in the same fashion that he deceives Israel (Rev. 17:3; please also see Matt. 24:24).
  • He will put his trust in military power. Dan. 11:38).
  • He will oppose the Northern Confederacy of Islamic nations (a group of countries to the north of Israel which will array themselves against Israel in the "Latter Days") [Ezek. 38:1 - 39:25; (cf. Ezek. 38:15; 39:2) Dan. 11:40; Joel 2:1-27 (cf. Joel 2:20) Isa. 10:12; 30:31-33; 31:8-9].

Feminists: one of Obama's core constituencies

In addition to all this, he is described as opposing the "desire of women" (Dan. 11:37); while there are some who insist that this particular verse refers to the desire of women to "bring forth the Messiah," such an interpretation requires an inordinate amount of convolution and seems to imply that women are more desirous of this than men. The more likely interpretation is the "common sense" one - ie., that he will oppose the "modern-day" desire of women to seek "equality" with men in the world of business and politics. THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION OF OBAMA'S ATTITUDE TOWARD THE FEMINISTS WHO CONSTITUTE ONE OF HIS CORE CONSTITUENCIES.

HIS VARIOUS TITLES & APPELATIONS

This mysterious and terrible person is known by various names and appellations in the Scriptures; indeed, there are more than twenty appellations attached to him. Arthur W. Pink lists the various names the Scriptures give to him: "The Bloody and Deceitful Man" (Ps. 5:6), "The Wicked One" (Ps. 10:2-4), "The Enemy" (Ps 10:18), "The Adversary" (Ps. 74:8-10), "The Head of Many Countries" (Ps.111:6), "The Violent One" (Ps. 140:1), "The King of Babylon" (Isa. 14:2), "The Sun of the Morning" (Isa. 14:12), "The Spoiler" (Isa. 16:4; Jer. 4:26), "The Nail" (Isa. 22:25), "The Profane Wicked Prince" (Ezek. 21:25-27), "The Little Horn" (Dan. 7:8), "The Prince That Shall Come" (Dan. 9:26), "The Vile Person" (Dan. 11:21), "The Willful King" (Dan. 11:36), "The Idol Shepherd" (Zech. 11:16-17), "The Man of Sin" (2 Thess. 2:3), "The Son of Perdition" (2 Thess. 2:3), "The Lawless One" (2 Thess. 2:8), "The Antichrist" (1 John 2:22), "The Angel of the Bottomless Pit" (Rev. 9:11), "The Beast" (Rev. 11:7); in addition, Dwight Pentecost includes the following names to the list: "The One Coming in His Own Name" (John 5:43), "The King of Fierce Countenance" (Dan. 8:23), "The Abomination of Desolation" (Matt. 24:15), and "The Desolator" (Dan 9:27).

In all of this we would call upon you to note carefully that NONE of these titles and appellations describe him as a kind of "New Age Guru" preaching love and peace, as most Christians suppose; indeed, many of them imply just the opposite:

  • The Violent One
  • The Desolator
  • The Bloody and Deceitful Man
  • The Wicked One
  • The Adversary
  • The Spoiler
  • The Nail
  • The Vile Person
  • The Son of Perdition
  • The Abomination of Desolation

Again – and very obviously - the antiChrist is no Obama-like figure. His antipathy toward -

It is this person – this "Coming Prince" (Dan. 9:26) – that the Bible says will "Cause to Prevail" the defense pact between the United States, reversing Obama's tilt toward the Islamic world. [Again, please see our article, "There Are Seven Kings."]

PART 3
THE BIBLICAL PARTICULARS SURROUNDING
ISRAEL'S DEFENSE PACT WITH AMERICA

J. Dwight Pentecost describes the biblical particulars surrounding this defense pact:

"According to Daniel 9:26-27 this great prince ... will make a covenant with Israel for a seven year period. This covenant evidently ... guarantees Israel's integrity [is a defense pact] ... [and] also is a Satanic imitation of the fulfillment of the Abrahamic covenant which ... [guaranteed] Israel title deed to the land. This action is pictured by John [in the Apocalypse] (Rev. 16:2) as a rider going forth to conquer [as the first horseman in the Apocalypse] ... This condition exists for three and one-half years, after which the covenant is broken by the ... [Antichrist]." [Please see Chapter IX of the New Antipas Papers, "The Course and Character of the Last Days."]

Sir Robert Anderson, first head of Britain's Scotland Yard & author of the Coming Prince

The treaty will be in the form of a defense pact between Israel and Prophetic Babylon (ie., the United States) and will be directed against Israel's enemies - again, no doubt a coalition of Islamic fundamentalist states in the Middle East. One of the most eminent scholars on "Last Things," Sir Robert Anderson, writes in his classic study of the antiChrist, The Coming Prince, says that the signing of this treaty will signify the beginning of the "Tribulation Period!" [Please see our article, "And So It Begins."]

THE SIGNING OF THIS AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE ANTICHRIST AND ISRAEL WILL SIGNIFY THE BEGINNING OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. Anderson writes:

"... the Seventieth Week [the seven year period of the Tribulation] will be a definite period of time, of which the beginning, the middle, and the end are definitely marked [by certain well defined events]. [Just as the beginning of the first sixty-nine weeks were signified] ... not by the return of the Jews from Babylon, nor yet by the rebuilding of their Temple, but by the SIGNING OF THE PERSIAN DECREE [TREATY] which restored ... [them], so also the beginning of the Seventieth Week will date not from their restoration to Judea [May 14, 1948], nor yet from the future rebuilding of their shrine, but from the SIGNING OF THE [DEFENSE] TREATY BY THE COMING PRINCE [ANTICHRIST]." [We URGE you to see Chapter IX of the New Antipas Papers, "The Course and Character of the Last Days," particularly, Part 2 of Chapter IX, "The Prophecy of the Seventieth Week."]

PART 4
GOD SENDS ISRAEL A SCARLET LETTER

ISAIAH CHAPTER 28

The Scarlet Letter

And now something very alarming! – or at least it should be to those who take the Scriptures seriously: Isaiah 28:15 and 18. This passage of Scripture is a kind of "scarlet letter" ("A" – meaning "adulteress") sent by God to his unfaithful spouse (ie., Israel - cf., Hosea chapters 1 & 2).

NOTE: A scarlet letter – signified by the letter "A" in red - is a symbol that Puritans required adulterers to wear.

The anger of the betrayed husband is blatant and palpable; it is full of RAGE and INDIGNATION. He warns his unfaithful wife that she has made a "A COVENANT WITH DEATH" and "AN AGREEMENT WITH HELL."

YE SCORNFUL MEN WHO
RULE IN JERUSALEM

The Covenant with Death; the Agreement with Hell

Think about what is being said here: "A COVENANT WITH DEATH" and "AN AGREEMENT WITH HELL!!!" What a hideous, shocking and dreadful appellation – and, make no mistake about it, it is meant to be.

And there is something more - the contemptuous "tag" the verse attaches to those who have made the agreement (in real life) - "the men who rule in Jerusalem:"

"YE SCORNFUL MEN" - meaning you leaders of Israel who have "disrespected" and "mocked" me.

GOD WARNS ISRAEL

The Lord then warns Israel:

  • "Your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and
  • "Your agreement with hell shall not stand."

Again, the anger here – indeed, FURY - of the Lord is intense!

And He goes on to say that those to whom Israel has turned for protection will betray them in the end -

"... when the OVERFLOWING SCOURGE (meaning antiChrist) shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it."

And who is it exactly to whom Israel has turned for protection: the "KING OF BABYLON" (ie., the antiChrist – Isa. 14:2)), God's great enemy – and it is here, precisely here, that DEATH and HELL are here equated with BABYLON THE GREATie., the United States! [Please see our article, "In Search of Babylon: What Do the Scriptures Say?"]

PART 5
REMAINING IN THE U.S. -
WHAT? ARE YOU MAD?

Eternal separation from God

America being equated by God with HELL and DEATH?? - It's enough to make anyone associated with the United States to quake with fear (or, at least, it should be enough).

Hell is a place of ETERNAL separation from God; a prison house of the wicked and "all those who forget God" (Psalm 9:17); a place of great sorrow (Psalm 116:3); a home for "hypocrites," "serpents" and "vipers" (Matthew 23:33); a location where the proud in this life dwell. (Habakkuk 2:5)

Death dwells there (Proverbs 9:18); it's the site where body and soul are forever separated from one's spirit; where man has been consigned to the status of an animal, a BEAST in precisely the same manner that the antiChrist is a BEAST. [Please see Chapter I of the New Antipas Papers, "The Nature of Man," for a description of death from a biblical standpoint.]

So at last we become aware of the full meaning of Revelation 18:2:

"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great ... [HAS] BECOME THE HABITATION [PRISON HOUSE] OF DEVILS, AND THE HOLD [DUNGEON] OF EVERY FOUL SPIRIT, AND A CAGE [PEN] OF EVERY UNCLEAN AND HATEFUL BIRD [SPIRIT]." (Rev. 18:2)

Babylon has become the habitation of devils ... and of every hateful and unclean bird (spirit)

And we begin to become mindful of God's warning to those of His people who continue to carelessly dwell there (cf., Isaiah 47:1-10):

"... COME OUT OF HER, my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF [PARTICIPANTS IN] HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues [ie., judgments, punishments]. (Rev. 18:4)

NOW PAY CLOSE ATTENTION
TO THE TIMING OF ALL THIS

Now pay close attention here: DEATH and HELL are first equated with BABYLON THE GREAT at precisely the time when Israel turns away from the Lord to seek protection from this great "latter Day" nation. The inescapable conclusion is that by that time Babylon (ie., the United States) has become FULLY --

"... THE HABITATION OF DEVILS ..." (Rev. 18:2)

One would have to be "NUTS" to want to remain in the United States after Israel has made it's compact with Babylon the Great – a time when the Scriptures plainly reveal that the United States has become FULLY involved with the "devils," "foul spirits" and "unclean birds" referenced in Revelation Rev. 18:2.

One would have to be "nuts" to want to remain in the United States after the Israel has made it compact with Babylon the Great - a time when the Scriptures plainly reveal that the United States has become FULLY involved with the "devils," the "foul spirits" and the "unclean birds" referenced in Revelation Rev. 18:2.

You are somberly warned here not to UNDERESTIMATE the power of Hell – especially in light of God's warning to:

"COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE." (Rev. 18:4)

[We URGE you to read or re-read our recent article, "America Has Become Inundated by Evil Spirits – as in the Days of Noah."]

More next time.

God bless all of you.

Prophecy is nothing more than a roadsign telling us of the danger that's ahead and warning us to take appropriate action BEFORE we get to the danger. If we do nothing until we finally get there, it will be too late.

Knowledge that does not produce
MEANINGFUL action is worthless!


We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE."
