The End Times in Prophecy: Daniel 8:5-8
Iran War, Iraq War: US Goat Stomps Ram, Islam Symbol
God says there is none like Him, declaring the end from the beginning. In Genesis 22, God shows the end of militant Islam when Isaac was saved from sacrifice by a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Islam teaches that Ishmael was spared by sacrificing the ram, and they celebrate it in Al-Adha. Which is right?
When Christ was asked about the end of the world in Matthew 24, he recommended we understand a desolating power first mentioned in Daniel 8. Here is a prophecy that reaches from the time of Daniel to the present and includes a ram that gets stomped and its horns are broken by a goat. Daniel 8:20,21 tells us the horns on the ram are the kings of Media and Persia and they are broken by the first king of Grecia (Alexander the Great).
History confirms Bible accuracy and the victory of Alexander over Medo-Persia. But Gabriel said the vision is “at the time of the end,” (verse 17) so what we’re looking at is a double application of prophecy—once in history, and again for our time when the Medes and Persians have become Iraq and Iran. If we read closely, several items fit better now:
U.S. coalition v Iraq and Iran is Bible prophecy
Identifying the Woman in Revelation 17
Bible prophecy represents religions as a woman that nurtures certain beliefs as in Jeremiah 6:2--"I have likened the daughter of Zion to a fair and comely woman." A pure woman represents a pure church; a harlot represents false teachings. Consider the Bible's clues to an end-time false system of teaching that can lead many to hell, Revelation 17:
If the above reasons aren’t sufficient to identify this whore, it’s doubtful that more would help. What are we willing to accept as evidence? Could there be another meaning?
Protestant publisher, Jack Chick, has taken a lot of heat for "The Godfathers" and "Alberto" (story of a converted Jesuit priest who paid the ultimate price for his expose's. You can read his "Godfathers" online at http://www.chick.com/catalog/comics/0114.asp
He has also published an insightful short book on "The Prophet" showing how young Muhammad was mentored by a Catholic woman, Khadijah. This helps us understand the common bonds of Rome and Islam with emphasis on Mary and Fatima in both religions. "Mother of Harlots"
A classic statement:
What about the New Pope Francis? He was picked by the system for his abilities to do the following...
"As head of the Jesuit order [in Argentina] from 1973 to 1979, Jorge Bergoglio was a member of the hierarachy during the period when the wider Catholic church backed the military government and called for their followers to be patriotic. Bergoglio twice refused to testify in court about his role as head of the Jesuit order. When he eventually appeared in front of a judge in 2010, he was accused of being evasive." http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/mar/14/pope-francis-argentina-military-junta
"The Dirty War [began in Argentina, 1976] is part of a larger campaign of state sponsored terror throughout the governments of the Southern Cone of Latin America—some of you know this as Operation Condor. Genuine state sponsored terror is not the President coming to take your guns or any other weird ideas people in the United States have about the power of the state. State sponsored terror in Argentina meant the ‘disappearing’ of 30,000 people in the night that the junta found threatening over the course of several years. These people were simply never heard from again, their bodies never found. Many were taken to detention centers where they were tortured and murdered. State sponsored terror means hiding who you are, silencing those things most precious to you just to survive. Destroying books to protect your children because simply owning certain materials made you a threat. Members of the disappeared included people as young as high school students—see Night of the Pencils for more on this—all beaten, tortured, raped, starved, and murdered for protesting the junta. Argentina is still recovering,still sending people to trial to ease the agonizing scars of the Dirty War." http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2013/03/30000-missing-the-pope-argentina-and-the-dirty-war-2592430.html
The character of the papacy has not changed and we should expect it to intensify in the near future!

America in Bible Prophecy, Revelation 13:11-15
Early Americans fled the Old World and generally believed that the first beast (political cartoon) in Revelation 13 was the papacy as it had assimilated all the characteristics of previous kingdoms in Daniel 7 where there was a lion, bear, leopard and dreadful beast with 10 horns. The first beast in Revelation 13 had a mouth like a lion, feet like a bear; it looked like a leopard and had the total of seven heads and ten horns from Daniel 7.
Those beasts represented succeeding kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Grecia and Rome. As the Roman Empire fell, 10 tribes roamed Europe, represented by the 10 horns that grew out of the 4th beast. Then a “little horn” emerged to uproot three horns. It spoke great (blasphemous) words, changed times and laws and persecuted the saints shown in Daniel 7.
Pioneers believed the papacy survived the Dark Ages of oppression as an amalgamation of those other beasts, but it had a “deadly wound” which they believed was the Protestant Reformation. John saw this deadly wound heal and “all the world wondered after the beast…” Revelation 13:3. Every living president of the US bowed before the casket of a dead pope.
America in prophecy is represented by the second beast in Revelation 13:11-15. It has two horns like a lamb, but no crowns as on the previous beast. This suggests a government without a king and a church without a pope—Protestant America.
The US beast causes fire to come down from the sky (Hiroshima) and "it spake as a dragon." Rev 13:11. It makes an image (look-alike) of the previous (papal) Old World Order.
What is the United Nations? It is a New World Order represented by the image beast that has its headquarters in the US : video http://www.jeremiahproject.com/newworldorder/nworder05.html and http://www.remnantofgod.org/nl0606.htm
The image beast (UN--New World Order) "causes as many as would not worship [pay homage to] the image beast should be killed," and he causes everyone to be marked, Revelation 13:15-17
We are only a short way from seeing this happen. America is already speaking like a dragon in recent Executive Orders. Soon, the most solemn warning in the Bible will apply...
“If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God…and he shall be tormented with fire…Revelation 14:9,10.
God is not taken by surprise, and He has provided for this worldwide emergency. You can read an explanation of this and the richest promise in the Bible...
The Papal Prophecy; the Catholic Church: the End Times
An Interesting Catholic Statement
“When the time comes and men realize that the social edifice must be rebuilt according to eternal standards, be it tomorrow, or be it centuries from now, the Catholics will arrange things to suit said standards.
Undeterred by those who prefer to abide in death, they will re-establish certain laws of life. They will restore Jesus to His place on high, and He shall no longer be insulted. They will raise their children to know God and to honor their parents. They will uphold the indissolubility of marriage, and if this fails to meet with approval of the dissenters, it will not fail to meet with the approval of their children. They will make obligatory the religious observance of Sunday on behalf of the whole of society and for its own good, revoking the permit for freethinkers and Jews to celebrate incognito, Monday or Saturday on their own account. Those whom this may annoy, will have to put up with the annoyance. Respect will not be refused to the Creator nor repose denied to the creature simply for the sake of humoring certain maniacs, whose frenetic condition causes them stupidly and insolently to block the will of a whole people.” The Liberal Illusion, Louis Veuillot, published by National Catholic Welfare Conference, Washington, DC.
