Final Victory is Certain. Part II

Since August 15, 1971 when President Nixon closed the "gold window", Dr. Ron Paul has been very active in proclaiming a message that is centred on ending the Federal Reserve System and restoring the Republic i.e. Constitutional government to the United States. As a result of these foundational messages he has focused on bringing peace to the nation, dismantling the United States' (Babylonian) Empire and returning to the rule of law with God given individual rights and honest money.

This two pronged message to end the domination of the Federal Reserve System and to return America to Constitutional government as originally intended by the founders of the nation has been the consistent meaning of Dr. Paul's entire public life for the past 41 years.

As I indicated in the first article I have seen parallels in Ron Paul's life to what is happening today in the spiritual realm and in what is recorded in the scriptures with regard to ancient Israel, both the House of Israel and the House of Judah, which have been regathered today in America.

The message he is proclaiming in Biblical and spiritual language is first to bring to an end the rule of “Mystery” Babylon over America, which began in 1913/14 with passage of the Federal Reserve Act. (1913/14 was seven times or 2520 years after the ancient empire of Babylon came to power in 607 B.C. This is a specific prophetic period mentioned by the prophet Daniel relating to ancient Israel.)

The second part of Ron Paul’s message is a call to return the nation to her original covenant with God that is written into the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution which taken together sought to secure the blessings of Providence upon the new nation. This latter goal is described as restoring the Republic. These two objectives foreshadow from a spiritual and Biblical perspective the imminent manifestation of the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God in the Bible is described as being “righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” which accords perfectly with the message brought to America by Ron Paul. This Kingdom is spiritual and is established first and foremost in the hearts of humanity. It will however come in fullness into the visible world very soon.

These two events, the ending of the captivity to Babylon and the coming of the Kingdom of God are inextricably connected in certain parables of Jesus dealing with the Kingdom of Heaven. There is one in particular dealing with the growth of the Kingdom and the end of the age in Matthew 13:24-30:

Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

“He presented them with another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a person who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, an enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went away. When the plants sprouted and bore grain, then the tares also appeared. So the slaves of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Then where did the tares come from?’

He said, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So   the slaves replied, ‘Do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No, since in gathering the tares you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At harvest time I will tell the reapers, “First collect the tares and tie them in bundles to be burned, but then gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

Jesus then went on to explain the meaning of the parable in Matthew 13:36-43:

Jesus’ Explanation of the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

“Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares in the field.” He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world and the good seed are the sons of the kingdom. The tares are the people of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are messengers. As the tares are collected and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his messengers, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.“

So we see the two kingdoms, the true and the counterfeit, growing together until the end. It is hard to tell the difference between the two until the end since the tares look exactly like the wheat until they open at the time of harvest and their fruit is revealed. The fruit of the tare is a black kernel (indicating moral perversity) with no nutritional value at all while the kernel of the wheat is white (indicating moral purity) and is nourishing.

Since the sons of the Kingdom of God are obviously individuals it stands to reason that the people of the evil one are also individuals who are under the direction of the devil, that old serpent satan who controls them just as the Lord Jesus Christ leads and directs His servants who are to be revealed in due time as the sons of God. The difference is the the Lord Jesus leads us with His perfect love while satan controls his minions with carnal fear.

These two groups are relatively few in number and are both directed from the spiritual realm. The Kingdom of God has been growing in the spiritual realm for two thousand years and a chosen number of followers of the Lord Jesus Christ known as "the few" have been added to it from every generation. Alongside this growth has been the gradual development in the physical realm of a world kingdom in secret which is why in the book of the Revelation it is called "Mystery" or "Secret" Babylon. We are now at the time of the end of the age and the harvest, the time of separation and revelation of these two kingdoms, is upon us.

The first stage before the revelation of the Kingdom of God in the visible realm is the revelation of Mystery Babylon. This is going on at the moment. This is followed by the gathering of the tares, the people of the evil one, into bundles. This suggests securing them i.e. placing them under arrest in order to bring them to justice. This is pictured by the fiery furnace, the fiery Law of God. Those who are responsible for this work are the reapers who are the messengers of God.

It is my conviction that Dr. Ron Paul is such a reaper, a messenger and envoy and will be called upon to lead and direct (the original root of the Greek word for messenger) as President the rounding up of the people of the evil one who are running the government of the United States at the present time. He is also the ONLY one who will close down the Federal Reserve System, a primary agency of Babylon, and restore the Republic i.e. Constitutional government, taking steps to bring peace and righteousness (true justice) all of which events foreshadow the coming Kingdom.

No other candidate will do these things since the other candidates including President Obama are all servants of Babylon, the counterfeit world kingdom created by carnal minded men that presumptuously claims authority over the whole Earth. The days of that kingdom are ending. Therefore no other candidate is qualified at this time to lead the nation. Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul has been called to this place for such a time as this. One scripture from the book of Daniel will serve to make this point. “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, forever and ever." (Daniel 7:18) This complements the quotation given by the Lord Jesus in His explanation of the parable that “the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father” which alludes to a further scripture from Daniel 12:3, “And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.“

Since we are seeing a foreshadowing of the coming Kingdom we should see the saints of the Most High in the earth realm at this time being raised up to positions of authority. Let me be clear about this. All of the events described here have already been decreed in the Divine Court. They will happen. We are living in a transition period during which we are witnessing confirming events that are foreshadowing the coming manifestation of the sons of God, i.e. the coming of the Kingdom of God into the Earth. This is the greatest event ever to take place in the history of the world and it is not expected by the institutional churches who are for the most part expecting to be snatched away in a “rapture” to heaven and for the world to be cast into a “great tribulation”.

Because the institutional churches rejected the Kingdom truth revealed in 1948 during what came to be known as the Latter Rain revival the Lord Jesus Christ has given them a strong delusion regarding the State of Israel that was established in that same year and to which they adhere blindly. Due to this God ordained blindness they are missing the real significance of foreshadowing events taking place all around them. However it is my belief that when Jerusalem is destroyed and the State of Israel disintegrates this will awaken many to their condition and they will be open to the Gospel of the Kingdom.

In the rest of this article I shall present further evidence that these things are true. While no one person has a complete revelation of all the purposes of God nevertheless He does make certain things clear to us and we should communicate these as we are led to do so.

Dr. Paul's messenger role has also been a prophetic one. In this he has consistently warned the leaders of America in the capital, Washington, that they are living on borrowed time since the Federal Reserve monetary system will collapse and ruin the nation. In January 1981 he introduced legislation to enable America to avoid collapse and return to a gold standard. This legislation would have been fully implemented by 1983/84 at which time the assigned 70 years for Mystery Babylon to rule America were scheduled to expire. Here is a record of a speech by Representative Larry McDonald in February 1981 in this regard:

http://chasvoice.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/five-myths-about-gol...

The rulers of Babylon refused to set the captives free at that time. As a result they themselves became subject to judgement as related in Jeremiah 50:33:

“The Lord who rules over all says:

“The people of Israel are oppressed. So too are the people of Judah. All those who took them captive are holding them prisoners. They refuse to set them free. But the one who will rescue them is strong. He is known as the Lord who rules over all. He will strongly champion their cause. As a result he will bring peace and rest to the earth, but trouble and turmoil to the people who inhabit Babylon.” 

Ron Paul has also been warning those in government to return to the original covenant with God, to the Constitution and the rule of law. [In the Kingdom of God this law is the law of the Spirit and Life, the law of liberty that God has promised us will be written in the hearts of ALL mankind when the Kingdom comes in fullness.]

At the same time Ron Paul has been very clear that he is fully aware of the moral decline of the nation and has often stated that the People must become more responsible for their own actions, that liberty must be accompanied by self control. In doing this he has in many respects been like the prophet Jeremiah who was called by God in the year 628 B.C. and prophesied mainly to Judah and Jerusalem. His ministry lasted until 587 B.C. a total of 41 years…just like Dr. Paul.

Jeremiah was a humble yet courageous prophet like Dr. Paul. He was vilified and ignored by the leaders of Judah in Jerusalem just as Dr. Paul is ridiculed and belittled by the leaders of the United States in Washington. Jeremiah was calling on the rulers to return to their original covenant with God, to stop oppressing and loading the people down with demands for money, to stop leading them into worship of false gods, to stop offering their children as sacrifices to these gods and warning them that if they did not then their city would fall to the Babylonian empire and be utterly destroyed. Since they themselves were manifesting the moral traits of that empire they would be placed under their rule to teach them and bring them to repentance. In this case his message was to Jerusalem and Judah BEFORE they were taken into captivity to Babylon whereas Dr. Paul is calling on the leaders and the people to return to their original covenant with God at the end of the nation's captivity to Babylon.

Jeremiah however also prophesied against Babylon after the people of Judah had been taken into captivity as related above and these prophecies are still very relevant for the Babylon of today that is now coming to an end. The people at the head of Babylon today, the people of the evil one in Jesus’ parable, are the same people to whom Jeremiah was speaking at the head of the government of Judah in Jerusalem. These are the people to whom Jeremiah said:

"Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it," declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 7:11)

These are the same people to whom Jesus said:

“Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have turned it into a den of robbers!” (Mark 11:17)

This was when Jesus overturned the tables of the money changers and drove them out of the temple in Jerusalem. A “den” is a hiding place for criminals. They seek to cover up their crimes by claiming to be morally principled and religious believing that if they follow the forms of religion they will be protected from the consequences of their actions. Of course they are liars and hypocrites. As Jesus said they are sons of their father the devil who is a liar from the beginning.

These are the people to whom Jeremiah prophesied that their city and their nation would be utterly destroyed and never rebuilt.

The Lord continued, “Now break the jar in front of those who have come here with you. Tell them the Lord who rules over all says, ‘I will do just as Jeremiah has done. I will smash this nation and this city as though it were a potter’s vessel which is broken beyond repair. (Jeremiah 19:10-11)

This prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. Although Jerusalem has been destroyed twice since the prophecy was acted out and spoken the city has been rebuilt twice. Only the temple remains in ruins although plans are afoot to rebuild it. Jerusalem still stands today and is revered as a holy city by the Jews, the Christians, especially those who are Zionists, and the Muslims. (Not all Christians however view the physical Jerusalem in this way recognising that God has finished with that city and that the true Jerusalem is the heavenly city which is a people not stones, bricks and mortar.)

Here is an article by an Israeli dissident who is a refugee from Israel living as a political prisoner in Bolivia. He gives some unique insights into the religious Jews living in the Jewish State:

http://www.roytov.com/articles/babylon.htm

When Jeremiah's ministry ended in the fifth month of King Zedekiah's reign, in 587 B.C. the city was already under siege by Nebuchadnezzar who had invited the residents to come out of the city to avoid being destroyed with it. The city and the temple were utterly destroyed on the 9th. day of the month of Ab in the following year 586 B.C.

The 9th. day of the month of Ab in the year 2013 is July 16th. This corresponds to the 9th. day of Ab in the year 586 B.C. that followed the end of Jeremiah's ministry in the fifth month of the eleventh year of King Zedekiah's reign in 587 B.C. The end of Dr. Paul's mission is in August 2012, the corresponding month in 2012 to the fifth month of the eleventh year of King Zedekiah in 587 B.C.. It is my personal belief that when Dr. Paul is President and implements his non-interventionist foreign policy this will permit the leaders of Israel to declare Jerusalem as their capital which will trigger the final stages of the war in the Middle East ending in the already prophesied destruction of Jerusalem, on the 9th. day of Ab, 2013. Here is an account of a vision from 1986 of two Gulf Wars ending in the destruction of Jerusalem:

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/COLDFUSION/booklet.cfm?PI...

(Also, read Isaiah chapters 28 and 29 for complete prophecies judging Samaria and Jerusalem. Notice how differently the LORD deals with these cities. I believe these prophecies are being fulfilled today.)

The second Gulf War began on September 11, 2001. September 11, 2001 is 392 years or exactly 8 times 49 years after September 11, 1609 when Henry Hudson claimed the land on which New York stands for the Dutch East Indies Company which like the British East India Company was a precursor of the mercantilist Babylonian world kingdom. 49 is the number used to calculate the years of Jubilee when all debts are cancelled, slaves are set free and everyone returns to their inheritance. 50 is the number of Jubilee but the fiftieth year is also the first year of the following Jubilee cycle. Therefore dividing the number of years by 49 delivers the actual number of Jubilees. 8 is the number of New Beginnings. On September 11, 1776 when the Revolutionary War had just begun Lord Howe the British leader called a peace conference at Conference House on Staten Island. The conference failed and the Revolutionary War began in earnest.

A Messianic Jewish teacher Jonathan Cahn from New Jersey has given a series of messages on 9/11 that are quite remarkable. I have included them here because he makes some observations that are confirmation of the importance of Ron Paul’s mission just as are other connected events that I will include as a final link.

First here is the link to the series of messages from Jonathan Cahn:

http://isaiah910.com/message/chapel/chapel.html

[Since Jonathan is a Messianic Jew who believes in the State of Israel his interpretation of the 9/11 events that he relates is somewhat different to my own although we agree that repentance is God’s aim. We also agree that the people who must repent are the Christians. That they must repent of their support for Babylon represented by the Jewish State and the material city of Jerusalem as the spiritual centre of Babylon is not something that Jonathan could countenance given his beliefs. He has also missed the fact that although, as he himself acknowledges, he has been called to be a watchman on the walls of Jerusalem he has not realised that God has given him these warnings because he is a Messianic Jew and the ultimate warning is for Jerusalem and for the counterfeit nation of Israel in Palestine that God will destroy.

The Twin Towers in the World Trade Center complex, reminiscent of the Tower of Babel and the hubris of man, were a symbol of Babylon and the Jewish State since the entire complex was owned by a Jew, Larry Silverstein, and they housed the financial hub of global trade that is the essence of Babylon. While it is true that God is calling America to repentance He has also promised in this event that He will preserve and restore the nation and the people themselves, by causing them to repent, while destroying the Babylonian system that holds them captive. This I believe is the real message of 9/11 and reveals the merciful heart of our Father.]

Jonathan’s first message called The Chapel is particularly significant. I recommend everyone listen to these messages in full since they highlight some little known facts about 9/11. Among these facts is that New York was where the very first meeting of the new United States government took place on April 30 1789 when the President, George Washington was sworn in.

As Jonathan points out, this 9/11 event corresponds to the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in 586 B.C. by Nebuchadnezzar. The Temple is where the United Kingdom of Israel was dedicated to God in 957 B.C. and the presence of God, the Shekinah glory, filled the House and remained in the Holiest Place where the Ark of the Covenant rested.

In 1984, 2,940 (6 times 490) years after the Temple dedication and 3,430 (7 times 490) years after Israel left Egypt under Moses in 1447 B.C. and received the Law at Mount Sinai, thus becoming one nation under God, Ron Paul was defeated in a primary election for the Senate and having failed to persuade the government to change course he left Congress the following January.

This began the countdown to 9/11 since Babylon refused to release the captives and so incurred judgement. This delay constituted a period of grace for the rulers of Babylon to repent. The number 434 relates to the Judged Time period of grace in the history of Israel. It is a period of grace given for late obedience. When the period ends judgement is carried out. From the first day in office of President Reagan's second term on the morning of January 22nd. 1985 until the morning of September 11, 2001 there were 14 periods of 434 days. 14 is the number of deliverance or release, referring to the release of the captives.

The fact that it is on a Judged Time cycle indicates that the release will be carried out although late. Ten is the number of divine order being reestablished one way or another through the judgment of the law (as pictured by the Ten Commandments). Twelve is the number of governmental perfection and divine authority. Ten cycles of 434 days from September 11, 2001 brings us to July 30, 2013, in the twelfth year from 2001. This is 14 days after the 9th. of Ab (the significance of this date is discussed above). Fourteen is the number of deliverance and release.

The question arises, why is the Judged Time cycle peculiar to Israel popping up in relation to Mystery Babylon? This makes sense if indeed the identities of these two entities have merged in some way. I believe this began in 1913/4 with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act when the people who were working in secret to fulfil Biblical prophecies in order to deceive the Christians secured their objective of capturing America, the regathered ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the physical descendants of the three tribes of the Southern Kingdom of Judah.

In 1948 with the creation of the Jewish State these same people took their place among the community of nations with the counterfeit name of Israel to which they were not entitled. This event occurred on the 414 Cursed Time cycle for Babylon since it was 2,484 (6 times 414) years after the ancient kingdom of Babylon fell to the Persians in 537 B.C. These people wanted to fulfil the prophecies related to the reunion of the ancient Kingdom of Israel that had been divided after Solomon's death in 931 B.C. and secure for themselves both the sceptre belonging to Judah (which they usurped in 33 A.D. when they crucified the true King of the Jews, the Lord Jesus Christ) and the birthright of Ephraim and Manasseh, including the birthright name of Israel, which they usurped in 1948 thus deceiving the Christians.

They believe this will give them the divine mandate to rule the world and to this end they have taken control of America (in the ancient Saxon language the Kingdom of Heaven) thus reuniting the physical descendants of the thirteen tribes of ancient Israel (including the Christian nations of Europe) under their dominion. So, the people of the evil one, the tares of the parable, have it would appear almost attained their objective of world domination which they have planned for two thousand years. This is the placing of the capstone on the pyramid pictured on the Federal Reserve one dollar bill. It is of course a counterfeit project and will not succeed. It is even now being brought low and Dr. Ron Paul is one of the instruments of God's purpose in doing this. These are spiritual truths and not to be used for carnal purposes. There are millions of innocent captives of these people from all ethnic and religious cultures including the Jews who have been their captives for the past two millennia.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens." (Ephesians (6:12)

These time cycle revelations are contained in Dr. Stephen E. Jones' book called "The Secrets of Time". The debt note finally given to the State of Israel is described in Stephen's booklet "The Debt Note in Prophecy":

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/books/secrets/index.cfm

http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.org/COLDFUSION/booklet.cf...

On the corner of ground zero is a chapel in which the leaders of the new nation gathered after the inauguration ceremony and it was there that George Washington prayed for the protecting hand of God to be on America and where he committed the nation to God. In the 9/11 attack the entire area around the chapel was completely destroyed but the chapel itself, the symbol of the original covenant with God and of the original intentions of the founding fathers was left untouched and was used as a first aid station for all the rescue work.

The chapel was preserved to some extent by the destruction of a sycamore tree in the churchyard that was cut down by a flying metal beam from the North Tower. The sycamore tree is a type of fig tree that does not bear fruit. The fig tree is the symbol of Judah and it is this tree that Jesus cursed and declared it would no longer bear fruit. This also reflected another tree that was cut down and represented Nebuchadnezzar himself and the kingdom of Babylon. This other tree was the subject of a spiritual warfare campaign in 1993/94 related here:

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/COLDFUSION/Chapter.cfm?CI...

The message from Jonathan Cahn dealing with the sycamore (fig) tree is “The Uprooted”:

http://isaiah910.com/message/uprooted/uprooted.html

A metal sculpture of this tree has been erected at ground zero and it is significant that the artist chose to portray the tree as uprooted with the roots exposed. He chose to sculpt the tree out of bronze the Biblical symbol of judgement. This would perhaps indicate that the roots of the barren fig tree nation, the State of Israel, and the truth of 9/11, will be fully revealed at some time and be judged.

The name of the chapel is St. Paul’s Chapel. The next President of the United States will be the 45th. 45 is the number of Preservation.

Jonathan also has a message on “The Prophet’s Jar” about the prophecy related to the pottery smashed by Jeremiah. I have already mentioned this prophecy above and how it remains unfulfilled. However Jonathan does not appear to make the connection that the jar cannot be repaired and it is broken irrevocably.

He also mentions in one of his messages the fact that it was the Assyrians who destroyed Samaria, the capital of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. He believes it is important that the Assyrians were known in their time as a “Terror State”. (Their capital Nineveh is present day Mosul in Kurdistan, Iraq. The people are Semitic Akkadian but are mainly known today as Assyrian and Syrian Christians. Most have been scattered from their original lands due to pogroms and genocide in another fulfilment of prophecy.) It is indeed true that Assyria was a "Terror State". However the nation today that has been identified as a “Terror State” by the UN in the Goldstone Report is Israel. It was prepared surprisingly by Justice Goldstone a South African Jew and a self disclosed Zionist.

http://www.roytov.com/articles/goldstone.htm

What Jonathan did not mention was that Assyria was also known for enslaving nations in debt through its trading activities and then invading them when they did not pay their debts. This is very much like the banking activities of the present day empire of Babylon and brings into view the activities of the Rothschild dynasty, the founders of Israel.

Taken together these facts would appear to suggest that the 9/11 attacks may have been carried out by a State, Israel. If this were true and if it were to be proved in a proper judicial process then it would certainly provide the motivation for the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish State by the United States itself. Chapter 29 in Isaiah describes the destruction of Jerusalem in terms very evocative of a nuclear bomb. If you have friends or relatives in Israel it would be a good idea to warn them. This event would then lead to the repentance of the Christian Zionist community and the release of the United States from the influence of Israel (Babylon) opening the way for the restoration of the Republic.

That this catastrophe will take place is certain. It is difficult to conceive of it taking place under any other Presidency than Dr. Paul since any other President would be a servant of Babylon and committed to defend Israel come what may. It is also very unlikely that any other would investigate the 9/11 attacks and discover who actually carried them out.

I should point out that the city corresponding to Samaria in America today is not New York but Washington which was founded in 1800 A.D. exactly 2520 years after Samaria itself was destroyed by the Assyrians in 721 B.C. Washington was attacked on 9/11 at the Pentagon the symbol of the military might of the United States which is the military arm of Babylon. However in every video of the messages given by Jonathan Cahn there is an introductory graphic: a red line joining Jerusalem with New York. I find this significant.

Finally, on July 14, Stephen Jones, the bible teacher whose work I have referenced here quite a bit, went to St. Paul with two friends for a divine visitation. The record of that mission is here:

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/ffi/divine_visitation_of_...

Stephen wrote a short weblog on that day that caught my eye since I had been contemplating writing and publishing this article that up until then I had felt constrained not to do. Here is how that weblog ended:

"So our day was spent in answering the appeals of those who set up counterfeits in the attempt to set themselves up as the true authorities in the earth. We answered those appeals and established the true Law of God at the St. Paul City Hall and Court House, First National Bank, St. Paul's Cathedral, and the St. Paul Capital. We ended our work at the Minnesota River in St. Paul, repeating what Jeremiah was led to do in Jer. 51 when he wrote a prophecy of the fall of Babylon and told his scribe to cast it into the River Euphrates."

On the same day Ron Paul sent out an email in which he mentioned that he expected to have 300 delegates. Another DP member wrote to ask when I was going to follow up on my first article and he mentioned the 300 delegates as well. These three witnesses confirmed that I should write and publish this article which I have done. I trust it will be of some encouragement and edification to everyone who reads it.

Jesus returned in 70 AD to

Jesus returned in 70 AD to judge the wicked generation of Jews who were guilty of all the blood shed on the earth. This was marked by the destruction of Jerusalem. REvelations is a story of that judgment - the destruction of the earthly Jerusalem and the establishment of the heavenly. We ARE NOT living in the last days, they were. We are living under the New covenant age. Bible prophecy was fulfilled nearly 2000 years ago. Nothing happening today has anything to do with bible prophecy.

Preterism did not answer all my questions.

After resigning my membership in an institutional church in 1998 I went on a search for the truth about the so called end times since futurism and Zionism had taken up such an unbalanced central role in the Church and I personally had serious questions about it. The effect that I could see in my own life and walk and in the church as a whole was a drift into a Judaised religion with the result that we appeared more and more like the first century Jews awaiting the coming of THEIR Messiah and we all know how that turned out. In other words I believed the churches who adhered to this doctrine had swallowed a lie.

When I began searching the very first contrary doctrine I came across was preterism which is the one you believe in. I found it quite persuasive and the writings about it that I was especially impressed by were those of Philip Mauro.

Philip did not believe that Israel would be reestablished and taught against it. I do not know what he thought of the situation when the unthinkable came about and the Jewish State was created in 1947/48 since he died in 1952 and was therefore around to see it happen. Nevertheless I agreed that Israel did not seem to be a fulfilment of the prophecies attached to it and it was only later that I discovered which prophecies actually applied to that State. Here is the book that opened my eyes on that subject:

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/books/birthright/index.cfm

For myself I found that preterism was somewhat limited and didn't answer all the questions I had and so kept searching. It was then I found the Kingdom teaching that until then I had no idea existed. I found out about the Latter Rain revival that took place in 1948 about the same time as the Jews were setting up their State in Palestine and the dispensationalists were preparing for the great tribulation and the second coming of Christ which did not happen.

The first Kingdom book I read was Stephen Jones' Creation's Jubilee and that opened my eyes to the truth of the coming Kingdom of God, the unfulfilled Feast of Tabernacles and the basis in the Law of God for the restoration of all things that was taught by the apostles for the first three centuries or more in the history of the Church.

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/books/creations/index.cfm

This encouraged me to read all his books and booklets and to seek out other Kingdom teachers and their perspectives. In the end I have settled on just a few that I find to have an anointing from God that speaks to my heart and whose teachings are the food I have sought for my entire Christian walk that began in 1977.

So far as the book of the Revelation is concerned, until about three or four years ago I had never been able to understand it apart from the letters to the seven churches. There are parts of it that do appear to be related to what is happening today but most of the confidence I have in the things I have written here is based upon actual personal experiences over the past ten years or so in concert with Stephen's group in the US who have conducted spiritual warfare campaigns to bring about the collapse of Mystery Babylon that we associated with the global banking system. This in turn is linked to the historicist interpretation of Revelation that Stephen teaches and which I have read but cannot honestly say that I embrace completely. The record of the spiritual warfare campaigns called "The Wars of the Lord" is here:

http://gods-kingdom-ministries.org/COLDFUSION/booklet.cfm?PI...

My own path has led me to the Revelation teachings of J. Preston Eby another Kingdom teacher and I have no doubt that this is exactly the purpose of this book. It is of course a training manual for the overcomer. It is for those who wish to enter the Holiest Place, like the letter to the Hebrews. It is one of the books the overcomer must read in order to complete his or her training. John the apostle was a type of overcomer. He was the disciple that Jesus loved. Once one recognises the truth of this approach the scales fall off one's eyes, or at least they did for me, and the Unveiling of the Lord Jesus Christ becomes the most exciting journey of one's life. This series of writings began in 2002 just after 9/11 and they continue today at one issue per month (127 so far). I would encourage you to at least read the introduction:

Thereafter you may decide it is not for you and that is the way it should be. We are all of us on different paths in our personal journey into the heart of God. As the Lord Jesus said, let those who have ears to hear listen (and by implication, obey)! Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of the Lord and it seems that is given to only a few. Many are called but few are chosen.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
