America is today the greatest military power on earth – and is the ONLY nation that can answer to the Bible's description of BABYLON THE GREAT. Even President Vladimir Putin of Russia admits that the United States is the world's ONLY superpower. He has said:
"America is a great power - today probably the ONLY superpower. WE ACCEPT THAT."
And no wonder; America spends more on its military than all other nations combined:
[Please see Chapter XI of the New Antipas Papers, "AntiChrist: King of Babylon." [PRESS HERE]; please also see PART 5 in our film, "Greed Is Good" for America's ability to destroy both Russia and China in a "FIRST STRIKE."] [PRESS HERE]
America as "BABYLON THE GREAT" – both figuratively and in reality.
With this understanding we turn now to some of the most enigmatic verses in the Bible:
"And here is the mind which hath wisdom ..."
"... there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space."
"And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." (Revelation 17:9-11)
The meaning of these verses have been hidden from all those generations that have preceded us; they were not meant to be understood until the "end of days;" specifically, when in the progression of American presidents there would develop the extraordinary event of five "fallen kings" --- ie., presidents who have been disrobed of their power but who remain alive, a development that has never occurred before in the United States --- answering to Revelation 17: 10 - "... there are seven kings: five are fallen ..."
A 6th president will then succeed to power which will answer to that portion of Scripture which declares, "... and one is ..." This would make President Trump, the current president, the 6th "KING" – the president whom we have previously deemed to be the BEAST or antiChrist. [Please see our article, "Trump as the AntiChrist."] [PRESS HERE]
One would think that this would disqualify Trump as the BEAST – after all, the 6th is not the 8th. Trump, it would seem, falls two figures short in the sequence of presidents; he is not even the 7th, about whom the Bible says "... he must continue a short space ..." - and one must remember, it is the 8th who is antiChrist or the BEAST, which answers to that portion of Scripture which states, "And the BEAST that was, and is not, EVEN HE IS THE EIGHTH ..."
What can this possibly mean? It's an ENIGMA. To answer this puzzle, we must turn again to that portion of Scripture which describes the presidency of the 7th "King" or president as being a very short one, perhaps as little as 3 days - – and it goes to great length to point out this fact.
Now pay very close attention here; we must back-up six verses to Revelation 17:3 which describes the antiChrist as receiving a deadly wound – or a wound unto death: "And I saw ... [his] head as it were wounded to death ..." Then, remarkably, the verse goes on to say that "... his deadly wound was healed ..." Read in its entirety, the verse reads as follows:
"And I saw ... [his] head as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." (Revelation 17:3)
We now return to Revelation 17:11 which declares that "... the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." Put plainly, verse 17:11 describes the BEAST as having been dead - "... the beast that was, AND IS NOT ..." Then, as if to add to the confusion, the Scripture states that he "... is of the seven ..." or that he is one of the preceding seven kings or presidents: specifically, the sixth, for he cannot possibly be one of the original five kings, and he certainly could not be the seventh.
The only way this enigma can possibly be understood is that the sixth king or president will be murdered, and that he will seemingly rise from the dead as THE SON OF PERDITION OR HELL. Putting this in plain language, Trump, as the antiChrist, will be murdered, and Vice President Pence will be sworn in as president; but when Trump "revives" Pence will be displaced - the belief probably being that a medical mistake had been made regarding Trump's death.
And now we understand that portion of Scripture which reads: "... he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." In other words, he was originally one of the seven (ie., the 6th) and now he is the 8th.
Answering to the meaning of Revelation 17:11 in the "here-and-now," the cries from Trump's left-wing enemies for his death are ubiquitous; for example,
Actor Johnny Depp who uttered a thinly veiled allusion to the killing of President Donald Trump, asking the crowd at the Glastonbury arts festival in England,
"When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"
Or Kathy Griffin showing a decapitated head of President Trump on You Tube.
Or Snoop Dogg who released a music video using a toy gun to shoot a clown resembling President Donald Trump.
Or Madonna who said she wanted to blow up the White House.
And then there are the innumerable 2017 Halloween depictions of Trump in the grave:
The thirst by Trump's enemies for Trump's death seems to know boundaries. NEVER BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY HAVE SO MANY THREATENED TO KILL A PRESIDENT.
Brothers and sisters, what all this should tell us is that we are very, very close to that time when -
"... the great dragon is cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he is cast out into the earth, and his angels are cast out with him.
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
FOR THE DEVIL IS COME DOWN UNTO YOU, HAVING GREAT WRATH (Rev. 12:9-11)
And the Scriptures go on to say,
And the people worshipped the dragon [who is cast down from heaven] which gave power unto the beast [Trump]: and they worship the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months [three and a half years].
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev. 13:3-8)
Brothers and sisters, time is very, very short now. TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES!!
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts?
In His love,
Jack and SR Shearer
WE URGE YOU TO TAKE A STAND AND PUBLICALLY WITNESS AGAINST THE CHURCH'S ALMOST UNREASONING SUPPORT OF DONALD TRUMP. SPEAK OUT (ie., WITNESS) AGAINST THE DECEPTION THAT MANY CHRISTIAN LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE PURVEYING.
The WHITE ROSE SOCIETY was a group formed by students Hans and Sophie Scholl and a band of Christian friends and professors. Their common goal was to stand against the Nazi regime that was terrorizing their country in the early 1940's, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY TO DECLARE THAT CHRIST WAS THE SUPREME POWER AND NOT ADOLPH HITLER. They secretly wrote and printed leaflets behind a church organ. They would then take as many as 2000 of them at a time and randomly distribute this bold writing in cities such as Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Vienna, Frieburg, Saarbreuken and Mannheim. As a result of taking part in these activities, seven of its members were executed between February 1943 and October 1944.
THE QUESTION HERE, AS IT WAS FOR SOPHIE AND HANS SCHOLL IS THIS: DO YOU FEAR MORE THE WRATH OF MAN OR THE WRATH OF GOD??
Finally, we urge you to download our flyers and pass them out; nail them to trees, lamp-posts; place them on cars, in windows; hand them to your neighbors and friends, etc. Download flyers to be passed out to friends and neighbors and pinned on trees, in windows, on church bulletin boards, etc.
In the light of all that's been happening recently - and we speak here of the Trump presidency, Islamic terrorism, the new anti-Semitism directed against both Jews and the Jewish state (Israel), the growing storm clouds over the Middle east which are harbingers of the coming Gog / Magog War, and that my wife and I can recover fully from our illnesses so that the work of the ministry can continue with vigor. In connection with the work of the ministry, we DESPERATELY need your financial help if we are to continue on with the work God has given us. The help you send will not accrue to any single individual, but will be directed to the effort of the ministry to bring TRUTH to you that you cannot receive anywhere else.
We ask you to bear in mind what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts.
God bless all of you.
IN HIS LOVE,
