[Night & Fog]

By: SR Shearer
September 15, 2013


The German expression, Nacht und Nebel, means "night and fog." It is a reference to a magical enchantment in Richard Wagner's opera, Das Rheingold. The term references the so-called "Tarnhelm enchantment" by which truth and reality are hidden behind a dark haze that makes it all but impossible for most persons to make out the facts that Nacht und Nebel are obscuring.

Wilhelm Keitel

NOTE: Nacht und Nebel became infamous as a directive (German: Erlass) of Adolf Hitler on 7 December 1941 that was originally intended to winnow out all political activists and resistance 'helpers', "anyone endangering German security" (die deutsche Sicherheit gefährden) throughout Nazi Germany's occupied territories.

Two months later Armed Forces High Command Feldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel expanded it to include all persons in occupied countries who had been taken into custody and were still alive. The decree was meant to intimidate local populations into submission by denying friends and families of the missing any knowledge of their whereabouts or their fate. The prisoners were secretly transported to Germany, vanishing without a trace. In 1945, the seized Sicherheitsdienst (SD) records were found to include merely names and the initials NN (Nacht und Nebel); even the sites of graves were unchronicled. To this day, it is not known how many thousands of people disappeared as a result of this order.

One should ask himself what the difference is between what the tyrants of the American New World Order System in their scheme of "disappearances" ("extraordinary renditions") and what Hitler did in 1941. [Please see our article "REMBERING DACHAU WHILE PONDERING THE FATE OF THE CIA'S PRISONERS SCATTERED AROUND THE WORLD (Christianity's involvement in the creation of America's death squads and the operation of America's black sites) ."]

In today's world, Nacht and Nebel are everywhere, and the miasma that diffuses out of it confuses and confounds the entire prophetic landscape of the "end of days" - AND THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE AS WE APPROACH THE "RUN-UP" TO THE GOG / MAGOG WAR, and particularly so as one tries to make sense concerning America's seeming impotence regarding the "goings-on" in the Middle East and especially in Syria. Indeed, the -

  • indecision,
  • vacillation, and
  • wavering

- of the American super-state in the Syrian crisis resembles nothing less than the impotence of Gulliver before his Lilliputian tormentors in Jonathon Swifts' book, Gulliver's Travels

The U.S. super-state taken over by the Lilliputians of the United Nations

There are, of course, many so-called "prophets of God" who - claiming to speak for God ex cathedra - believe they can see through the Nacht and Nebel behind which the enemy has obfuscated what's happening.

Sadly, however, most of these so called "prophets" (really, soothsayers) do not authenticate their babblings and gibberish by citing holy Scripture; instead they base their prognostications on "dreams" and "visions" that bypass the Scriptures: babblings and gibberish they have supposedly received DIRECTLY from God. And when they occasionally do cite Scripture (which, for the most part, is very occasional) the scripture they cite is tied to translations of the Bible that are for the most part incomprehensible – translations that only they (the false prophets – the soothsayers) can interpret. These are those about whom Jesus warned:

The soothsayers that Saul consulted (cf. 1 Samuel 28)

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

And He went on to say:

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." (Matthew 7:21-23)

I cannot begin to tell you of the many, many lives I am aware of that these "false prophets" have destroyed.

Speaking concerning such people, Jesus said:

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." (Matthew 25:15)


The general consensus of these soothsayers is that –

  • Obama is the Muslim antiChrist
  • and he is preparing America to be taken over by radical Islamists.

Naturally enough, there are many variations on this theme, but in essence they seem to agree on these two points.

And the kind of "proof" they offer for this prognostication? - to put it in the vernacular, "it's a load of "BULLSHIT." Take, for example, the following video that comes from the website of one of these "bull-shitters:"


We URGE you to sit through the entire screed. Notice that NO Scripture is given; only the babbling of some pastor's wife; yet this video is available at thousands of Christian bookstores and on countless Christian websites. Notice again how the poor are denigrated, how Obama is linked to Communism, how the rich are exalted, immigrants are disparaged, etc.

Finally, note how this screed ends: that the demise of the U.S. can be averted IF Christians can take over the government. [Please see our article, "THE REICHSTAG FIRE OF 1933 AND THE TWIN TOWERS OF 9–11: PORTENTS OF THINGS TO COME (A Coming Valentine Day Massacre of American Leaders)."]

NOTE: The King James Version of the Bible translates this word "shit" as "dung" – a word that over the years has lost its stark and very harsh meaning; the word is better understood in today's lingua franca as "shit;" it is used in this manner by Paul the Apostle in his letter to the Philippians:

"Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung ("SHIT"), that I may win Christ ..." (Philippians 3:8)


Now, if this is the kind of inane babbling that you wish to involve yourself, so be it. It's no skin off my nose. BUT, for those who sincerely desire to come to a MEANINGFUL understanding of the "end of days," the Bible gives us the way: the Apostle Peter tells us –

"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place ..." (2 Peter 1:19)

"We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place ..."  (2 Peter 1:19)

And that "sure word of prophecy" is contained in the WRITTEN Word of God – i.e., the Bible. [Please see our article, "Beware the Prophetic Daydreams of False Prophets & Empty-Headed Dreamers."]

The Bible describes the antiChrist as –

  • promoting himself as the church's champion. [(Rev. 17:3; please also see Matt. 24:24].
  • promoting himself as Israel's champion. (Dan. 9:27)
  • putting his trust in military power. Dan. 11:38).
  • 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 - i.e., that he will oppose the "modern-day" desire of women to seek "equality" with men in the world of business and politics.

Can any of these things be said of Obama; NO! – in fact, just the opposite! [Please see our articles, "OBAMA'S MIDEAST POLICY: Making peace with Islam by Throwing Israel 'under the Bus'," and "A DISASTER IS STALKING OBAMA IN THE MIDDLE EAST (GAINING PERSPECTIVE ON THE "IN-BETWEEN TIME)"]


One of the most common misrepresentations of the Antichrist is that He will present himself to the world as a "Man of Peace" - a kind of "New Age Guru." BUT THE SCRIPTURES IN NO INSTANCE INDICATE THAT SUCH IS THE CASE. Take, for example, the many names and titles that are given to this individual in the Scriptures - none of which indicate that he will masquerade as a "Man of Peace." 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).

False prophets who come as wolves in sheep's clothing

Certainly NONE of these names gives any kind of credence to the thought that the Antichrist will be a "Man of Peace" - 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

Brothers and Sisters, I must say that if you want to persist in giving credence to the soothsayers of today's Christendom,  so be it. That's your business. BUT for those of you who want to make something of your lives in light of the Holy Scriptures, we are more than willing to help you in this effort.

There are two different ways you can involve yourself in the work of the ministry:


More next time.

God bless you all,

SR Shearer,


Do what Sophie Scholl did some eighty years ago: PASS OUT OUR FLYERS.

One should not think that it is necessary to hand out our leaflets (flyers) personally; it is enough that one should do what the members of the White Rose did: post the flyers on walls, trees, utility polls, leave them in union halls, in libraries, etc. Eventually the flyers distributed by the White Rose were copied and circulated throughout all of Germany.

Some even made it into Allied hands where they were then copied and dropped from Allied planes over Germany. That's the beauty of such leaflets (i.e. the written word); they possess a life of their own after they pass from your possession.

NOTE: Why use our flyer? - there are a number of reasons:

  • First, our flyer directs people to our website where they can obtain the information they need to take a stand against the connection between the elites of the American New World Order System and today's church.
  • Second, the website will arm those who access it with the theology and eschatology needed to take the stand mentioned above. Remember the words of the Apostle Peter:

    "... be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear ..." (1 Peter 3:15)

  • Third, it describes those of us connected to Antipas much in the same way the members of the White Rose described themselves:

    "Antipas Ministries, which is responsible for this flyer, is NOT part of any church or denomination; it is simply a loose-knit group of Bible-believing Christians concerned about the connection between the elites of the American New World Order System and today's church."

  • Fourth, it provides a means for others who contact the ministry from your area to be re-directed back to you; in this way – and over time – you can build up a group in your area to stand with you in your efforts.

    Remember the words of the Lord to Elias when he thought he was all alone in his struggle against God's enemies:

    "... I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal [the god of money]." (Romans 11:4)

    These "faithful ones" are there, and if you go "fishing" for them using our flyers, you will in time find them; but it will take much diligence and patience on your part to "fish" for them.


They are as follows:

  1. Our "B-52" flyer
  2. Our "Blessed By Ye Poor" flyer
  3. Our "Religious Right, Business Right, Political Right" flyer
  4. The "Christ of Today's Evangelical Church" flyer


Then make copies and take these copies out to the campuses where you live; pass them out; OR if that seems too "daring" for you right now, post them on telephone poles, the sides of buildings, on campus bulletin boards; post them in union halls, in the neighborhoods of the poor and downtrodden, near employment offices, wherever you can.

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."
