"Everything faded into mist. The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth."

- George Orwell, 1984


This morning John Kerry conceded the election of 2004 to President George Bush. Bush has won - and he has triumphed BIG TIME (by 3.5 million in the popular vote). Most political pundits acknowledge the fact that Bush's victory came as a result of the massive support he received from the Religious Right.

Several months before the election, Noam Chomsky of MIT cautioned his allies on the Left - most of whom smugly believed that Kerry would win the election - not to underestimate the power of the Religious Right. He wrote in the magazine International Socialist Review (September - October, 2004):

"The popular constituency of ... Bush ... is the ... fundamentalist religious sector in the country, WHICH IS HUGE.

He continued:

"THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT IN ANY OTHER INDUSTRIAL COUNTRY (in the West). The Kerry people don't have that constituency. They would like to have it, but they are never going to appeal to it much."

He went on to warn people that if Bush won he would have to -

"... throw them (i.e., the Christian Right) RED MEAT to keep them in line ... and throwing RED MEAT to that constituency is very dangerous for the world, because it means VIOLENCE AND AGGRESSION not only for the world, but also for this country: it means harming civil liberties in a very serious way."

And what is the "RED MEAT" that Bush intends to throw to the "Christian Right?" It's nothing less than -

  • The Construction of a so-called "Christian State" in the United States.
  • The creation of a "Gestapo Apparatus" to ensure the survival of the new state.
  • The destruction of Christianity's hated enemy in this country, the "Secular-Humanist" Left.
  • The destruction of Christianity's 1,500 year-old enemy, Islam. [Please see our articles, "The Birth Of A Christian-Police State," "John Ashcroft, Theodore Olson and the New National Security State," "The Utility of Police Brutality in the Elites War Against the Poor," Radical Islam," and "The Watchers Are Watching You."]


God help us all! How can Christians (so-called) believe in such things? - i.e., that the "Prince of Peace" would have ANYTHING to do with the bloodshed and slaughter inherent in such a scheme.

Yes! - the Bible foretells of killing and carnage in the "end of days," but that butchery is connected to the construction of the Kingdom of Antichrist (i.e., "Babylon the Great"), not with the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus. If there is butchery and bloodshed to be found, be sure that it is NOT connected to Christ, but to Antichrist. The Bible says,

"Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will be gathered." (Matt. 24:28)

If you want to know whose kingdom Bush and his cohorts in the Religious Right are constructing, look for the corpses (bloodshed). And if you find the elites and their BOOTLICKERS in the Religious Right near where the corpses are located, then you can be sure that they are the VULTURES (i.e., the minions of the Devil) spoken of in Matt. 24:28.


So I say again, Is it that hard to see what's happening? NO! - it's not.

Christians don't see because they don't want to see, fulfilling the words of Christ when He said,

"For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." (Matt. 13:15)

It's the same kind of "dullness of hearing" and blindness that permitted Christians like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and D. James Kennedy to embrace the "slaughter of innocents" in Latin America during the Contra Wars, and embrace what R.W. Apple, Jr. calls the "Legacy of Reagan" without at the same time being able to pick out the menacing figure of John Dimitri Negroponte lurking in the background, a man who is, without a doubt, one of the "VULTURES" foretold in Matt. 24:28). [Please see our article, "The Horror of John Dimitri Negroponte and Everything He Represents."]


However, the horror that Negroponte visited on the people of Central America during the Reagan presidency is now effaced from history. It's as if all that horror didn't happen, lending credence to the words of Orwell when he said:

"Everything has faded into mist. The past has been erased, the erasure has been forgotten, the lie has become the truth." [For a glimpse into what was going on in Central America when Negroponte was there, I recommend seeing Oliver Stone's Salvador, you can rent it at any "Block Buster" outlet. There is some nudity and a lot of foul language - but so what! It's still worth seeing.]

It's no accident or quirk of history that Negroponte is now the American proconsul in Iraq appointed by Bush to oversee the growing mound of corpses in Iraq just as he did so many years ago in Central America. He's very good at that. The trouble for Christians is that this time he is doing it LITERALLY in the midst of Babylon, in the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. That should mean something to Christians. But just as the American people have conveniently forgotten who Negroponte is, Christians in the United States have forgotten the Prophetic Scriptures!

It's as if the warning of the Scriptures concerning the "End of Days" has been erased from the Bible. It no longer exists; the erasure is not remembered, and the lie has become the truth. It's no wonder, then, that Christians are so unable to decipher what is so plainly occurring right before their very eyes in Iraq: the fact that it is their army that is today on the plains of Shinar, in the land between the rivers, INDICATING IN POINT OF FACT - BOTH FIGURATIVELY AND LITERALLY - THAT AMERICA IS "BABYLON THE GREAT" - not Europe, not the U.N., nor any other nation or combination of nations.


Brothers and sisters, listen to me here (and I have special reference to those of you in Antipas): As most of you know, I had desperately hoped for a Kerry victory if only because such an outcome would have gained us some time.

It seemed to me that most Christians - even those connected to Antipas - were simply not prepared to accept the fact that we are now at the "end of time;" that they were not prepared, as a result, to take MEANINGFUL ACTION with regard to their increasingly precarious situation.

Consequently I had anxiously besought the Lord for more time. [Please see our articles, "At the Crossroads: the Election of 2004" and "$3 Trillion and the Bush, Kerry Campaigns for the Presidency: What It Means for Us as Christians."]

However, it was not to be. The Lord will not be "put off" any longer: WE ARE NOW IN A HEADLONG RUSH TOWARD ARMAGEDDON. The fact is, whether we are prepared or not, whether we have our "ducks in order" or not, whether our loved ones are prepared to follow us or not, whether we have any money or not, whether our business affairs are "wrapped up" or not, PROPHECY HAS AT LAST CAUGHT UP WITH US.


The next big event will most likely be another "manufactured 9/11 event" analogous to Hitler's "Reichstag Fire" through which the borders will be sealed, the draft will be imposed and escape from the United States will become very difficult if not impossible - especially for those of draft age - both male and female.

And make no mistake about it here! Bush needs a HUGE ARMY to ensure victory in his "War on Terrorism" (so-called). [Please see our article "A Woman Riding a Beast Going Forth Conquering and to Conquer. "]


In connection with all this, I must somberly warn you, prophecy REQUIRES you to take action. You cannot remain passive in the face of prophecy. If you do so, you make prophecy of no effect. Prophecy is like a road sign saying: "Slow down, sharp right hand turn ahead!" But if you fail to heed the sign, if you fail to slow down before you get to the turn, it will be too late to brake once you finally get there, and you will surely slide off the road and crash.

Like a road sign, prophecy tells you things before they happen so that you can take evasive action before events catch up with you. If you wait until they finally overtake you, it will be too late to do anything - you will crash! Watch, therefore, for the "signs of the times," and don’t wait to take action. You may wait too long! Jesus said,

"... When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?" (Matt. 16:2-3)

And Paul warns us,

"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober." (I Thess. 5:4-6)


Believe me when I tell you that God is today bending over the parapet of heaven and SHRIEKING out a warning to each and everyone of you: "Do not be overtaken by the events of the end of the age." If you do so, God will NOT come back for you. He didn't do it for the "rich man" in Matt. 19:16-23, and the chances are very slim that He will do it for you!

As I have said so many times before, I realize that this is precisely the kind of attitude that gets me labeled a "Jim Jones," but any "teller of the truth" is going to be labeled that these days. So what? People act as if - somehow or other - they have hurt my feelings by not accepting what I have to say. But my feelings aren't hurt. They've not hurt me; they are the ones who someday will be hurt, not me.

The Bible is COMMANDING you to take action; it is telling you -

"... Today if ye will hear his (i.e., God's) voice,

"Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

"When your fathers tempted (i.e., tested) me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

"Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

"So I sware in my wrath, THEY SHALL NOT ENTER INTO MY REST.



Our faith is on the line now, and we shall see whether it is for real or not. We are going to be tested, and the test is not going to be a hypothetical one; it is going to be for REAL. [We urge you to read Chapter 11 of the Antipas Papers, "Tribulation and Judgment," for a scriptural explanation of the coming "test."]

The question to be answered is this: Are you the kind of person who has the courage of your convictions?

It seems a trite saying, but it's true: This life doesn't go on forever - and after that, the Judgment (Heb. 9:27). In the light of that, you would do well to remember the words of Christ when He said,

"... whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." (Matt. 10:33). [And do not think that your supposed "Christianity" will spare you here; that God will overlook your cowardice. He won't!]

More next time!

Until then, God bless you,

Finally, we urge you all to reacquaint yourselves with the issues of the end of days by reading our article, "Sowing the Seeds of the Gog/Magog War."

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."
