Revelation 17: Big Brother -- Updated

We are experiencing conspicuous fundamental, tectonic changes in our domestic Western societies. They are accompanied by challenges in the world's balance of power, allegedly initiated by a strict orthodox Sunni Wahhabi start-up terrorist group with a penchant for beheadings, female captives and Middle East oil. But, we need to drill a bit deeper in our understanding. Have you ever wondered who is the driving force behind it all? And to what end? The discernible players are in the news daily. They are: the US, UK and the Western Christian nations; the Muslim nations, both Shia and Sunni; and the Jewish state of Israel. Added to this piquant mix are Russia and China. Put it all together, and the Middle East looks ready to boil all over Damascus at any given moment. Yet, there is one key player that is plainly missing from our news reports. And it is the critical one that is the driving force behind all the machinations taking place on our world stage, the perpetual political, economic and military wars, both foreign and domestic, that have become the new normal of daily life since Bush and Cheney's deliberate opening of Pandora's Box with 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq. It's why no matter which party the US leaders hail from, Republican or Democrat, the US direction doesn't change. Without knowledge of our mystery puppet master, our world view is not complete. Therefore, Revelation 17, pun not intended, reveals who is missing from our daily news reports. It puts the chaos and mystery into focus that is leading us to the dominion of a world government, i.e., the Apocalypse.

Christ's Return, The Hijacked Elephant

The Day of Trumpets, which heralds the beginning of the new civil year, in its duality marks the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is the day that Christians, unknowingly, have been looking forward to for millennia. And it was a high holy day that was observed millennia before that by the children of Israel. It's all part of the same story, just the circumstances of its characters have changed.

One World Peace And Security

Every year we hear about someone predicting “the end of the world.” In 1514, Pope Leo X wrote, “I will not see the end of the world, nor will you my brethren, for its time is long in the future, 500 years hence.” Now whether or not he was making a ballpark 500-year prognostication and the "war to end all wars," or he was being specific, we have no lack of yearly “end of the world” predictions. A Cambridge University professor claimed in 2014 that we would have a “Doomsday” moment, rather than a full blown doomsday, which is supposed to determine whether or not the 21st century will be “full of violence and poverty or will be peaceful and prosperous.” [Doomsday Moment]. From all accounts a couple years on, we got violence and poverty.
