THE HALE-BOPP COMET: A DRAMATIC SIGN OF THE COMING GLOBAL JUDGMENT

There can be no doubt that we are living in the days of the end times and a period of time that biblical scripture refers to as the times that will repeat themselves as it was in the days of Noah. These times serve to prove that the biblical seven years of global judgment called the Great Tribulation is upon us and the return of Christ is at hand. There can be no doubt that God has sent a myriad of signs to confirm that, many of which have been signaled from the heavens above us. If we are to believe what Jesus had to say, then we must conclude that these cosmic signs portend that something catastrophic is on the horizon. It is with this thought in mind that I go back to something that happened on March 23, 1997.

There was an extraordinary lunar eclipse on March 23 of that year, which coincided with the festival of Purim. This, in and of itself, was remarkable, yet even more remarkable was that, as the light of the full moon was being slowly hidden by the sun’s shadow, the comet Hale-Bopp gleamed even brighter. Hale-Bopp was a comet that, just a few years before, was undiscovered. No one but God knew it was out there. Though it remained visible for many more weeks following, that particular weekend in March actually marked the zenith of Hale-Bopp’s visibility. This extraordinary comet was visible to the naked eyes of the entire world. It was the most widely viewed comet of the 20th century. So then, what are we to deduce by it’s appearance? Read on… From the earth, Hale-Bopp appeared nearly 50,000 times brighter than Halley’s comet. It was discovered on July 23, 1995, in the constellation Sagittarius. The February 14, 1997 issue of “PSR Discoveries” reported that, “On August 2, 1995… pre-discovery images were found on photographic plates taken at the Anglo-Australian Observatory on April 27, 1993. The image showed that the comet was active… It was found at the last… passage of the comet was nearly 4,200 years ago.”  There are two very significant points revealed in this quote. First, though discovered two years later, the earliest visible evidence we have of the comet was aquired on April 27, 1993. That date, on the Hebrew calender, was 6 Iyar. This proves to be very interesting, for this Hebrew date is the anniversary of a very significant prophetic event.  On that same Hebrew date, forty-five years before this photograph was taken, the British mandate over Palestine ended (the number of 45 years will become prophetically significant later in this article). The date on our calendar was May 15, 1948, and was the day that Israel officially became a nation. Although Israel’s Independence was declared the day before, it did not take effect until after Midnight on May 15. It seems to me that the link these two events share – the same Hebrew date – classifies the appearance of Hale-Bopp as a significant sign of the time of the end. As significant as that information seems to be, the article delivers yet another bombshell. It reveals that the last time Hale-Bopp passed through our skies was about 4,200 years ago. This is an amazing revelation.

 

 

THE SEASON OF NOAH

In 1990, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, wrote that the Hebrew year 5750 (1989-90) formed an acrostic for ha tekufah shel nissim – “the season of miracles.” If you recall this time period saw the collapse of Communism’s grip on Eastern Europe, the destruction of the Berlin wall, the reunification of Germany, and the migration of thousands of Jews from the Soviet Union to Israel. It certainly was a season of miracles.
During the spring and summer of 1997, Hale-Bopp remained visible to the naked eye in many parts of the world. Even though it eventually dropped out of sight in that respect, it remained visible with the aid of a telescope until mid-December 1997. October 2, 1997, marked the beginning of the Hebrew year 5758. I will point out that , as it is written in Hebrew, this year contains the name “Noah.”  In Biblical prophetic scripture, Jesus warned that the sign that we have entered the end times that will lead to his return in the events of the Rapture, the seven year judgment upon the world known as the Tribulation and the second coming of Christ will be like the days of Noah …

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37-39).

Using the same principle as the Rebbe, the Hebrew year 5758 (1997-98) forms the acrostic, ha tekufah shel Noah – the season of Noah! If we consider that, in Noah’s day, there seemed to have been clues within the Hebrew years, is it possible that we are also being given a clue as to the day in which we live? It’s hard not to believe so. Furthermore, the year 5758 (the season of Noah) was a landmark year in Bible prophecy. This is fascinating in itself, but watch what happens when you go back 4,200 years – the amount of time cosmologists believe has elapsed since Hale-Bopp was last visible from the earth. Using 5758 as our starting point, we can determine that the last time Hale-Bopp was visible from the earth was in the Hebrew year 1558. This was the same year Noah received instructions from God to begin building an ark.
According to the ancient text of the Seder Olam Rabbah, it was about this time that a comet appeared in the heavens as a sign to Noah’s generation of the impending flood! It would seem that cosmology has confirmed this and has named it Hale-Bopp. The conclusion is, therefore, that the previous sighting of Hale-Bopp was to serve as a warning of an approaching appointed time. Look at the signs – Rabin’s assassination, the year 5758, and now a most startling sign – a major comet seen to the naked eyes of the world for weeks! Did it return in 1997 to warn mankind once again of God’s impending judgment?

HERALD OF THE ANTICHRIST

As already noted, the actual discovery of Hale-Bopp occurred when the comet was traveling through the constellation Sagittarious. Sagittarious is the bow-wielding archer who is seen as the coming conqueror. Could the discovery of Hale-Bopp within this particular constellation allude to the coming of Antichrist (Revelation 6:2) and the

end of the age? Is it possible that this constellation alludes to the Beast in Revelation 13, who is also described as an Archer in Revelation 6? Note that Sagittarius has two natures – one beast, one man. By studying the course that Hale-Bopp has taken through the heavens, this Antichrist theme materializes in greater detail. After Hale-Bopp left Sagittarius, it made it’s way to the constellation Perseus. Specifically it crossed the section of Perseus known as the “severed head of Gorgon,” Medusa. In Hebrew this is known as “Rosh Satan”, the “head of Satan.” The principal star in this part of the constellation is the variable star Al Gol, which means “the evil spirit.” By comparing the paths of Hale-Bopp and 1996’s comet Hyakutake, one will discover that the paths of the two comets intersected near Al Gol – in the “head of Satan.” Hyakutake was at this point on April 11, 1996. Hale-Bopp was at this point on April 11, 1997! Their intersecting paths form a cross or X in the forehead of the “head of Satan.” Is this a possible allusion to the mark of the Beast?

Perseus is a decan, or division, of the constellation Aries. In Hebrew, Aries is called Taleh,

perseus constellation
Interestingly, the Hale-Bopp comet then made it’s way through the constellation Perseus (pictured above).  It is known as the “severed head of Gorgon, Medusa.”  Conspicuously, in Hebrew, this is known as “Rosh Satan,” or the “head of Satan.”  It’s principle star is “Al Gol,” which means “the evil spirit.”  Notably, just one year earlier in 1996, comet  “Hyakutake” crossed the same point in “AL Gol” as Hale-Bopp did one year later, forming an “X,” or cross, in the “head of Satan.”  Conclusively, this is a harbinger of the approaching “mark of the Beast,” or the mark of the Antichrist.

which means “the lamb.” This lamb is pictured as having two horns. It would seem that not only could this “lamb” allude to the “Lamb of God” , but could also allude to the “Lamb with two Horns”, mentioned in Revelation 13:11). Directly below Aries is the constellation Cetus, the sea monster. In the classic Christian book, “The witness of the Stars”, E.W. Bullinger notes that Cetus is the natural enemy of fish and likens Cetus to Leviathan, the sea beast. Now note what bible prophesies indicate will happen to Leviathan: “In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” (Isaiah 27:1)
Obviously, Leviathan is a name given to the beast who rises from the sea in Revelation 13:1. All of these factors conclude that this area of the heavens – Cetus, Aries and

aries constellation
Notably, both the Hale-Bopp comet and comet Hyakutake travelled through the constellation Aries (pictured above).  The constellation Perseus is a division of the constellation Aries. In Hebrew, Aries is called “Telah,” which means “the lamb.”  This lamb is pictured as having two horns.  Interestingly, Revelation 13:11 describes the lamb with two horns.

Perseus – represents the lawless one we know as Antichrist. Note that these three constellations are connected and provide a picture of three key figures in Revelation 13. We see the beast from the sea in Cetus (Revelation 13:1), the second beast out of the earth – the lamb with two horns – in Aries (Revelation 13:11), and the image of the Beast in the “head of Satan” (Revelation 13:15). It even contains the Mark in the forehead – the X formed by the paths of the two comets (Revelation 13:16). Though Hale-Bopp has long since disappeared, we should not think that what it portends has disappeared with it.
On the same day that Hale-Bopp arrived at Al Gol, another celestial event took place. On that day, there was a lunar occultation of the brightest star in Taurus the bull. That star is known as Al Debaran, which means “the Governor” or “the leader.” This is the red star in the “eye” of the bull. Because Orion has his club raised to strike the bull, some interpret

The “Cetus The Sea Monster” Constellation (pictured above) is located directly beneath the constellation Aries.  Cetus is the natural enemy of fish (Christianity).  Cetus is likened to Leviathan, the sea beast found in Isaiah 27:1.  Leviathan is a name given to the beast who rises from the sea in Revelation 13:1

Taurus as representing the Antichrist and Al Deboran as representative of Satan, who is the “governor” of the Antichrist. Almost a month earlier on March 14, 1997, Muslim stargazers in Europe and the Middle East witnessed another occultation of the same star. Some of these Muslim astronomers interpreted this to mean that their leader – Al Mahdi – was about to rise and lead them in a war against Israel. I should note that the flag on many Islamic nations show a crescent moon along with one bright star. One wonders if that star represents Al Debaran.
In early May, Hale-Bopp was flying through Taurus. Within Taurus, there is a group stars worth noting for what they may represent to us, the church. In what would be the shoulder of Taurus is a star cluster called the Pleiades or “the seven sisters” (Job 9:9; 38:31). It is called this because, from the earth, the cluster appears to be seven stars – though there are actually many – surrounding one brighter star. This is very interesting because in the opening chapters of the book of Revelation, Jesus, the bright and morning star, appears to John and gives him a warning to be shared with the Church. Following this warning, the Lord shows John what is about to happen in

the world. As he appeared to John, in his hand he held “seven stars”, which are “seven sister churches” located in what is now known as Turkey. These seven churches, all within close proximity to one another, were situated at the base of the “Taurus” mountains! Is this coincidence, or is the passage of Hale-Bopp through this region a sign that what John saw is about to come to pass?  The Jewish oral tradition states that, if a comet were to pass through the constellation Orion, the world would be destroyed. As if to test that tradition, when Hale-Bopp left Taurus, the comet moved into Orion. It entered the constellation on May 20, 1997, and exited on June 16th, 1997. That means that the comet was in the Orion constellation during the biblical festival of Shavuot, or Pentecost (June 11, 1997), which is an appointed time (moedim). This means we have been given time to prepare because the days of Noah in 1997 officially began, or should I say, the season of Noah.

ARGO: THE SHIP AND THE TITANIC

In the summer of 1997, it appeared that the orbit of the comet would take it through or very near the constellation Argo. Argo is depicted as a ship. According to myth, Argo was the ship that carried Jason and the Argonauts on their mystic quest for the Golden Fleece. In his book, Bullinger relates that the story of the Argonauts and their ship has it’s origins in the account of Noah’s Ark! Could it be that this comet – last seen during Noah’s day – was going to pass through the constellation whose origins are based on the flood account?
Biblical astronomer Bob Wadsworth has stated that not only was Hale-Bobb going to pass through Argo, but in the Northern Hemisphere, it was going to reappear in Argo during the months of September and October! This information is almost too incredible to believe. This biblically historic comet did, in fact, reappear in the constellation Argo – the

This biblically historic comet did, in fact, reappear in the  constellation Argo – the Ark (pictured above) – around the time that saw the beginning of the Hebrew year 5758 – the season of Noah.

Ark – around the time that saw the beginning of the Hebrew year 5758 – the season of Noah. Hale-Bopp was a dramatic sign that we are now living in the days of Noah spoken of by Jesus.
What about Argo? What significance does Argo – the Ark – hold for us as believers? Before the wrath of God was poured out, the Almighty invited righteous Noah and his family into the Ark, the only place of safety. It was the vehicle that God used to deliver them up above the chaos. The very thing that destroyed the world bore Noah and his family upon it’s shoulders, because they had listened and prepared for what was coming.
Argo is linked to the star Praesaepe, which in Latin is “the manger.”  Remember, a cosmic sign heralded the first coming of the Messiah in a manger! The Big Dipper, part of the Great Bear, extends above the zodiacal constellations Cancer and Leo. When we look at Cancer, we see the beautiful star cluster called Praesepe, the Bee Hive, so called because (with binoculars) it has the appearance of hundreds of bees [click here]. There is an interesting prophetic observation concerning bees with the gospel message of eternal salvation through Christ.  There is also a connection to the last days spread of a curse across the globe called “Islam“, which is also connected to bees.  See the video below titled “THE LAST DAYS FAMINE AND THE DISAPPEARING BEES.”

                 

The star cluster Praesepe is close to the center of this constellation, at 12½ degrees Cancer. Just as the Pleiades star cluster was seen in ancient times as the most powerful location of the Moon in the whole zodiac, so the most powerful location of Jupiter in the zodiac was seen to be the star cluster Praesepe. Does this most recent cosmic sign portend his return in Glory? Pavo is a not-so-well-known constellation with a connection to Argo. Though not one of the forty-eight principal constellations, it is an ancient constellation, recognized for two to three thousand years. It’s original name refers to

Praesaepe “the manger” Star Cluster (pictured above) is linked to the constellation Argo.  Praesaepe, in Latin, is “the manger.”  A cosmic sign heralded the first coming of Jesus Christ in a manger!  The Hale-Bopp comet, having traveled through Argo, directly connects to Praesaepe, the manger.

Argos the shipbuilder or, as some contend, Noah. For 4,100 of the 4,200 years that Hale-Bopp has been in our solar system, it has been in the constellation of Pavo. Therefore, there can be no doubt about Hale-Bopp’s connection to Noah and the Flood. If that is the case, then there can be no denying what this celestial harbinger is saying: “Jesus is coming soon!” For… as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:37). It is evident from scripture that before the wrath of God is poured out, those who have received Jesus as their savior will be escorted above the chaos and horror of Judgment to come. That does not mean that we should not be as vigilant as Noah. Jesus has told us that there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars. As these signs materialize, we must properly discern their importance. It is evident that Hale-Bopp has returned in 1997 to warn us to be prepared for that promise of deliverance. As these cosmic signs appear to us, we need to heed their

message and warn the wicked (the unsaved) to heed their message and escape into the Ark of safety found only in Jesus. They need to be warned that Heaven will not be their future if they reject him.

At this point I would like everyone reading this to recall the importance of Biblical and historic patterns, as discussed earlier. Recollect how God will use these past events and, in some cases, has ordained that they be used as accurate pictures of future events (Ecclesiastes 3:15). Secondly, be reminded that before God will let anything happen in the earth, he first warns his people (Amos 3:7), and he always confirms his actions in advance with two or more witnesses (Deuteronomy 19:15).
With this being understood, it’s time to discuss an infamous event from the past, but more importantly, to show that hidden within the history of the event is a probable pattern for America’s future, if not the world. Given that the world is connected to America as the global superpower, so goes America, so goes the world. Furthermore, a story should be interjected at this point to show how God does indeed confirm his word with at least two witnesses. The story of Noah and the Ark is one witness to God’s mercy, his patience and his judgment. Yet, it is a blueprint for the last days, as well. It is the story of how one man built a God-designed ship that afforded no luxuries, only safety from the coming Judgment of God. Sadly, no one trusted in it, yet everyone who got on board was saved. In sharp contrast, the story of the Titanic is the account of a luxury liner designed by the best men shipbuilding had to offer and built by thousands of professionals. It was a ship where no expense was spared. Everyone who could afford it wanted to be on Titanic, and yet when the hour of Judgment came, very few were saved.
The stories of the Ark and Titanic are two witnesses testifying to this generation of what lies ahead if it fails to repent. Interestingly, just as Hale-Bopp’s starry white glow disappeared from sight in mid-December 1997, theatre marquees across the nation lit up titanic moviethe night skies with the word TITANIC, the story of the infamous WHITE STAR Liner! The Oceanic Steam Navigation Company or White Star Line of Boston Packers, more commonly known as just White Star Line, was a prominent British shipping company. Founded in 1845, the line operated a fleet of clipper ships that sailed between Britain and Australia. Today it is most famous for the innovative vessel Oceanic of 1870, and the Olympic class ocean liners, including the ill-fated RMS Titanic.  In 1934, White Star merged with its chief rival, Cunard Line, which operated as Cunard-White Star Line until 1950. Cunard Line then operated as a separate entity until 2005 and is now part of Carnival Corporation & plc. As a lasting reminder of the White Star Line, modern Cunard ships use the term White Star Service to describe the level of customer care expected of the company. It is assumed by now that everyone has heard of or seen the Blockbuster movie, TITANIC. You should know that this movie has the distinction of being the top box office hit of

all time, after spending several weeks as the number one film in America. After it’s initial release, throngs of people clogged theatres to sit through a three hour film which depicts, in vivid detail, that unforgettable night when the greatest ship of it’s day, carrying a diverse community of more than 2,200 passengers and crew, struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage. Consequently, Americans, young and old alike have been carried away with Titanimania. In light of recent national events, the movie’s timing and America’s infatuation with the story seems prophetic. It is not a coincidence.

TITANIC AND THE NUMBER 70 – A MESSAGE FROM GOD:  DOES GOD USE HOLLYWOOD?

Some may find it incredible to imagine that God would speak to the world through a shipwreck, not to mention a secular film. But God can use whatever vehicle he chooses. Remember Balaam’s donkey! He will find a way to get his message out to those who are listening with spiritual ears. Now, consider the following:

The name Titanic is derived from the word “Titan”. In Greek mythology, the Titans were a group of large beings who tried to overthrow the gods of Mount Olympus (Titanic’s sister ship was the Olympic). They were eventually defeated and cast down and consigned to the lowest region of the underworld (this should sound familiar). The compartment of the underworld in which they were confined was called “Tartarus,” which is the word Peter uses to describe where some of the fallen angels are housed until the time of Judgment (2 Peter 2:4).  These angels are the ones that co-habitated with human women. (Genesis 6:2, 4) An interesting fact here is that “Atlantis”, the fabled utopian civilization of antiquity, is also associated with the Atlantic and, in fact, supposedly disappeared under the ocean after a violent earthquake. For centuries, explorers and historians have tried to determine if there was such a place, and, if so, where? Some of the places that are believed to be the ancient Atlantis are the isle of Crete, the Canary Islands, the Scandinavian Peninsula, and, believe it or not, AMERICA. Could it be?
Consider these bizarre facts… The word Titan is closely related to the name “Titus”, you will recall, was the man who, in 70 A.D. (note this date) destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem. Josephus records that for years, signs were pointing to the destruction of Jerusalem, yet people refused to believe that God would allow it to happen. The only people who were known to escape this tragedy were those Christians who heeded the words of Jesus (Luke 21).
The movie TITANIC opened just before Christmas of 1997, very close to the day that comet Hale-Bopp disappeared from sight. Just a few weeks later, the movie was declared to be the largest grossing film of all time. That announcement came during the Hebrew month of Tevet. The Hebrew root of this name is probably related to tava, which means “TO SINK!”
For several weeks thereafter, TITANIC remained on top at the box office. As the “70th” Academy Awards approached, the talk of the town was whether TITANIC would steal the show. It did. The movie won “eleven” Oscars. So, what is important about all that information?  Shouldn’t we find it at least interesting that TITANIC, the ship that was built by the “White Star Line”came on the scene about the time that the White Star” of the Hale-Bopp comet left the scene? Isn’t it strange that TITANIC won all this acclaim at the “70th” academy awards? Could this possibly be an allusion to the year 70 A.D. when Titus destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple? It should be noted that one of first

ships to receive a distress call from R.M.S. Titanic was the ship MOUNT TEMPLE!”
According to E.F. Vallowe in his book, “Keys To Scripture Numerics”, the number eleven is “associated usually with disorder and judgment” (Keys to Scripture Numerics, page 94). This interpretation is corroborated by E.W. Bullinger in his book “Number in Scripture” (page 251). With this information in mind, isn’t it interesting that TITANIC received “eleven” Oscars? Is this just a fluke of history or is God using secular media to send out a warning to those willing to hear? You’ll have to decide for yourself I suppose.
How interesting is it that TITANIC was built by the White Star Line and the “White Star” of the Hale-Bopp comet was seen by the naked eye just previous to the movie release.  A very interesting fact in this whole tragically fantastic story is this: Captain Smith received many ice warnings prior to the collision. No doubt he must have wondered what could have been done to avoid this disaster. Perhaps if he had been told of at least two other ice warnings the ship received just hours before. One of those warnings had come from the Californian, a small ship sitting motionless in order to avoid floating ice. Her radio operator had tried to warn the Titanic as late as 11:00 P.M. but was rebutted, “SHUT UP! SHUT UP!, I AM BUSY!” The Californian was commanded by one Captain LORD”. Just before midnight, the captain had decided to retire and had suggested to the radio operator that he do the same. At 12:15 A.M., Californian’s radio went silent for the night. Just ten miles away aboard Titanic, Captain Smith ordered Titanic’s radio operator to send the distress signal. The time was 12:15 A.M.!
On the Californian’s deck stood James Gibson. He had been watching the ship that lay just beyond the horizon. With glasses, he thought that she had tried to make contact with Morse Lamp but he dismissed it as her Mast light flickering. Second Officer Herbert Stone also watched the strange ship at 12:45 A.M., he noticed the white flicker of a flare. He thought it strange that a ship would be shooting off rockets at night. They were sending distress signals. He reported to Captain “LORD” who was sleeping on a couch in the ship’s chart room. Captain “LORD’S” reply was to “keep morsing.” That was about the extent of Captain “LORD’s” interest in the mystery ship. While the Titanic sank, Captain “LORD”, commander of the only ship who could help them, slept.
Think of it… The captain of the ship that could help them was named Captain L-O-R-D!  Could this be a coincidence? Is it also coincidental that Captain Lord was the only one who could have given the order to rush to Titanic’s rescue and save her passengers? As we know, he didn’t. He was asleep. Consider the following scripture:

“Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me; because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord. They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke. Therefore, they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.” (Proverbs 1:24-33)

Interesting to note here is that towards the end of the Titanic movie, the main female lead character of the movie “Rose” stood looking up at the statue of Liberty. It was a powerful, thought provoking scene given the above information.

THE HALE-BOPP COMET HINTED AT IN PSALM 97?

Back in the 1980s, the late J.R. Church discovered that the psalms seem to have been encoded with allusions to modern events that happened in the specific year according to the number of the psalm. Going back through modern history, one can see that this is the case. In looking at psalm 97, one can see the allusions to the Hale-Bopp comet coming through in 1997, the year number of the psalm …

A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled” (Psalm 97:3-4).  

The earth saw and trembled?  The whole entire earth did indeed see this comet with their naked eyes!  The fire of the Hale-Bopp comet certainly did “enlighten the world” as it were.  This is quite the amazing revelation. Comets of this magnitude have always signaled something major happening in the world that would dramatically change the course of history approximately three and one half to four years after a comet of this magnitude was seen. With this being the case, it comes as no surprise that approximately three and one half to four years later after the Hale-Bopp comet was seen by the naked eye of man, the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon occurred, forever altering the course of the world toward the biblical global judgments described in the

book of Revelation as “The Great Tribulation.” This fact can be seen in the course of action that the world’s sole superpower, the United States, took in invading the middle east, thus setting the stage for the biblical end times wars also described in multiple books of the bible. Given all of the above information learned thus far concerning the prophetic significance of the Hale-Bopp comet, is it just a coincidence that this comet made it’s appearance before the naked eyes of the world in the year 1997, the very year number of the psalm that alludes to it’s appearance in our night skies for the world to see?  The Hale-Bopp comet seemingly did indeed signal all of these things, and it would seem that J.R. and co-host Gary Stearman were right on the mark with their assessment of this comet and it’s prophetic significance described in this psalm of the bible.

The Hale-Bopp comet was indeed a stunning announcement and a jaw-dropping sign from God of the quickly approaching horror of the Tribulation period and the return of Christ for his own.

HALE-BOPP COMET AND THE YEAR 2017 CONNECTION?

Since the days of the Roman Empire, the Jews have been scattered to the nations of the earth after being conquered and taken into captivity several times by not only Rome, but also by previous empires with Rome being the last. The dispersal of the Jews was a divine judgment against Israel according to biblical scripture. But bible prophecy is clear that in the end times just before the return of Christ and the onset of the Tribulation period, the Jews would once again return to a reestablished Israel. This began in earnest in 1948 when the nation of Israel was reborn and reestablished in one day as biblical scriptture indicated it would be. This is a stunning fulfillment of prophecy indicating the nearness of the world’s divine judgment and the return of Christ. As stunning and big as that prophecy is, the plan of the return of the Jews to a reestablished Israel actually began in the year 1897 with the First Zionist Congress. The first Zionist Congress was to have taken place in Munich, Germany. However, due to considerable opposition by the local community leadership, both Orthodox and Reform, it was decided to transfer the proceedings to Basle, Switzerland.

Theodore Herzl acted as chairperson of the Congress which was attended by some 200 participants. The major achievements of the Congress were its formulation of the Zionist platform, known as the Basle program and the foundation of the World Zionist Organization. The program stated … “Zionism seeks for the Jewish people a publicly recognized legally secured homeland in Palestine.” This gave clear expression to Herzl’s political Zionism in contrast with the settlement orientated activities of the more loosely organized Hibbat Zion. Herzl was elected President of the Zionist organization and an Inner Actions Committee and a Greater Actions Committee were elected to run the affairs of the movement between Congresses. In his diary Herzl wrote …“Were I to sum up the Basle Congress in a word – which I shall guard against pronouncing publicly – it would be this: At Basle I founded the Jewish State.”

2017 is 120 years from the First Zionist Congress in 1897, or the conception phase of Israel’s return that would occur in 1948. A quick look at history will reveal that reestablished Israel gained back Jerusalem as it’s capitol in 1967 in what is known as the six day war. 2017 is 50 years from the return of Jerusalem to the state of Israel. 50 is a very important and significant number in biblical history concerning ancient Israel.

Answers in Genesis approximates the time it took to build the Ark was 55-75 years. Remember that Noah was given 120 years by God to build the Ark before the global flood would occur destroying all living things on earth with the exception of Noah, his family and the animals aboard the Ark. Noah had the 120 year countdown which we can see paralleled from the First Zionist Congress (1897-2017). Yet another significance of the Hale-Bopp comet was that it came through exactly 100 years after that significant date of 1897. 100 is also a very important and significant number in biblical history concerning ancient Israel. Add 20 years and you come to 2017. That totals 120 years, Noah’s 120 year countdown! It is becoming quite evident that the year 2017 may signal a very important prophetic event, or at least the starting process of a very important prophetic event. As we’ve now learned, the Hale-Bopp comet strongly hinted at the soon arrival of the Antichrist. This comet likely signals the beginning of the rebuilding of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem in 2017 that the Antichrist will sit in during the Great Tribulation as described in the prophetic book of Daniel concerning the last days.

2017 PROPHECY ALERT: ISRAEL PREPARES TO BUILD THE THIRD TEMPLE

SOLAR ECLIPSE COMETS

There is a fascinating and prophetic significance to the history of solar eclipse comets … of which Hale-Bopp is one of four.  It is a very rare event.  Interestingly, during Hale-Bopp’s trek through our solar system, a total solar eclipse in Mongolia and western Russia caused Hale-Bopp comet to glow brightly during the day.  Comet watchers commented that this was only the fourth comet in history to appear in the daytime during a solar eclipse.  It was the first time since 1948 (there’s that prophetically significant date again – rebirth of Israel) that such a spectacle had been seen.  Astronomers call the 1948 event, “The Eclipse Comet, C/1948 VI (1948 XI).”  On November 1, 1948, a beautiful comet was observed from the plains of east Africa.  The January, 1997 Sky & Telescope magazine described it this way … “a handful of astronomers huddled quietly around their cameras and instruments waiting for totality.  When the last spark of sunlight was extinguished, an unexpected celestial spectacle was revealed.  Mingling with the diaphanous coronal streamers was a comet with a long, curving tail and a head more resplendent than Jupiter.  Humankind had it’s first glimpse of the great Eclipse Comet.”  Had this comet appeared in the northern hemisphere, it would be remembered as one of the greatest comets of all time.  But it’s southerly declination relegated it to obscurity.  Nevertheless, this rare phenomenon was seen during the year of the Bible’s most important and significant prophecy fulfillment … Israel’s rebirth into statehood … 1948.  Before that, another eclipse comet was seen in 1947.  During a total eclipse on May 20, a comet was revealed.  Viewed from Brazil, it became known as “The Southern Comet, 1947/XII.”  Sixty-five years earlier, the first of the modern eclipse comets was viewed from Egypt during a solar eclipse on May 17, 1882.  It was called “Comet Wells, 1882/I.”  So, these are the dates of the four eclipse comets …

  1. May 17, 1882
  2. May 20, 1947
  3. November 1, 1948
  4. March 9, 1997

It is absolutely extraordinary that the first three solar eclipse comets mark important dates in the history of modern Israel.  The year 1882 saw the first “aliyah” or return to the Promised Land by a group of hardy settlers.  From the book “Coming Home to Zion,” by Abraham Shulman, note a passage referring to the few Jews who had remained in Israel for the last 19 centuries, and to new Jewish settlers … “This constant, though small, community of Jews would have continued to live together in the same state of stagnation had it not been for an event that occurred in the year 1882.  In that year, more precisely on the eleventh day of August, a group of young Jews from the Russian city of Kharkov set out for Palestine with a new purpose:  they went not to die, but to live …”  They were the first Jews to return from outside the land of Israel.  The years 1947 and 1948 marked, respectively, UN self-determination for Jews in Israel and Israeli statehood.  The prophetic importance of these two dates and the one above should be self-evident.  How amazing that rare eclipse comets call attention to all three dates.  As we have already seen, the Hale-Bopp eclipse comet was pointing to the year 2017 as very prophetically significant given the constellations and dates this comet traveled through.  Interestingly enough, comet Hale-Bopp’s announcement of 2017 as being a year of prophetic importance delivered another interesting cosmic event … another rare solar eclipse comet that would occur in the same year that Donald “Trump” rose to the presidency of the United States of America, the world’s most prosperous gentile nation built on a Christian foundation.  During the much talked about great American solar eclipse that crossed America from Oregon to Georgia on August 21, 2017, a comet passed near the sun during the eclipse.  Although not widely seen due to the fact that it was near the sun, it was there nonetheless.  This would be the fifth time that a solar eclipse comet has happened – and as already stated – during the very year that a “Trump” rose to the presidency of the United States of America.  The Hale-Bopp hits just keep on coming.

A SERIES OF “TRUMP” BOMBSHELLS

It is of utmost importance to realize that, according to prophetic scripture, there is coming an event that will see millions upon millions of people across the earth disappear instantaneously and ascend into Heaven in an event known as the Rapture as Christ stands in the heavens and calls home those who belong to him. Said another way, scripture declares that only those who are “born again” in Christ will be a part of this magnificent yet shocking event.

This future event is directly mentioned in two places of New Testament scripture. The first place is 1 Corinthians 15:52 which reads …

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last {TRUMP}: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

The second place this event is mentioned is in 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 which reads …

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the {TRUMP} of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

The Last Trump occurs in the days of Noah. How many people do you know named Trump? Trump, our current President, is a flashing sign, a prophetic truth. Since Obama’s second year of his second term, Noah has been the most popular baby name. “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man” (Luke 17:26).

Trump Bombshell 1:  The Donald Trump presidency will be the 58th presidential term in America’s history. It seems that 58 is very prophetically significant. It turns out that 58 is also a Hebrew word. That word is “Noah.” Noah means “comfort” or “rest.” Taking this into account, is it just a coincidence that we have a president that rose to the American presidency with the last Donald Trump waves as he walks with first lady Melania Trump during the inauguration parade in Washingtonname of “Trump” in the very same year that the Hale-Bopp comet pointed to … the year 2017? Remember that the rapture will take place at the sounding of the “Trump” according to 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 and 1 Corinthians 15: 52.

Trump Bombshell 2:  Another interesting observation concerning Hale-Bopp’s connection to the number 120 is that there were initially 120 people in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 1:15 who were miraculously baptized with the Holy Ghost and started the present church age of believers (later, the 3,000 were added to the church) …

“And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty …” (Acts 1:15).

It is very interesting indeed to know that the present age of believers (also known as the church age) will end with the event of the rapture that is initiated with the sound of a “Trump.”  The beginning or the initiation of the church age began with 120 in Acts 1:15, and stunningly, we see a “Trump” rise to world power as president in the year that Hale-Bopp comet pointed to!  Did the Hale-Bopp comet signal that the end of the church age is at hand while carrying the banner of the number of 120 years with President Trump in 2017?  The beginning of the church is associated with 120, now it would appear that it’s ending was being announced with the Hale-Bopp comet carrying the banner of 120 years (Noah’s 120 year countdown mentioned above) for the year 2017 when a “Trump” would rise to power that would give us an incredible and dramatic prophetic hint that the end of this church age is drawing ever near via the “Trump” of God that will initiate the rapture!

Trump Bombshell 3:  As stated at the beginning of this article,  the Hale-Bopp comet was discovered on July 23, 1995, in the constellation Sagittarius. The February 14, 1997 issue of “PSR Discoveries” reported that, “On August 2, 1995… pre-discovery images were found on photographic plates taken at the Anglo-Australian Observatory on April 27, 1993. The image showed that the comet was active… It was found at the last passage of the comet was nearly 4,200 years ago.”  This was the time that Noah was building the Ark preparing for the judgment of the global flood.  There are two very significant points revealed in this “PSR Discoveries” magazine quote. First, though discovered two years later, the earliest visible evidence we have of the comet was aquired on April 27, 1993. That date, on the Hebrew calendar, was 6 Iyar. This proves to be very interesting, for this Hebrew date is the anniversary of a very significant prophetic event.  On that same Hebrew date, forty-five years before this photograph was taken, the British mandate over Palestine ended. The date on our calendar was May 15, 1948, and was the day that Israel officially became a nation. Although Israel’s Independence was declared the day before, it did not take effect until after Midnight on May 15.  Notice that the number of years between the time when the British mandate over Palestine ended and the time when the comet was first visibly acquired on April 27, 1993 was 45 years.  President “Trump” is the 45th president of the United States!

Considering these peculiarities, we have the makings of a divine wake-up call to the world.  There seems to be a very big and demonstratable connection between the Hale-Bopp comet and the approach of the Antichrist and the end times Tribulation period. That connection demonstratably also extended to the year 2017 with the election of a man with a very biblically peculiar last name that points to an approaching event mentioned in the Bible that will shake the world … the event of the sounding of the Trump called the Rapture. What significant prophetic event will occur in 2017 that will move the world one step closer to the beginning of global judgment of the biblical end times? Stay tuned for any updates to this article. It’s getting interesting.  Prophetic updates, prophetically peculiar occurrences and observations can be seen in the “PROPHETIC UPDATES” section at the very end of this article further below.

In the meantime, as stated above, the only people who will escape from the wrath and judgment that is coming upon this world by being a part of this coming magnificent and dramatic rapture event will be those who are “born again” in Christ.  With that said, let’s explain what being “born again” means.

THE WAY OUT AND YOU

In order to accept the offer of God’s grace and his salvation, you must take the crucial three steps of

1. Agreeing – A belief and agreeing with God in all that he says in his word, the Bible, about the fact that you are separated from God, as every man and woman on the face of the earth are before accepting his salvation.  The Bible reveals that all are separated from him in a spiritual state of death, or in another way that the Bible puts it, in a state of sin, that will result in eternal damnation.  Agreeing with God in your heart that you are in need of his salvation.  The Bible reveals that God looks upon the heart of a man, and thus, responds accordingly to the man or woman who comes to him for salvation in recognition of his inability to save himself.  The Bible makes these facts very clear – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).  The Bible describes these three kinds of death:  physical death (the state experienced when life leaves our bodies); spiritual death (spiritual separation from God caused by our state of spiritual death, or state of sin that results in outward acts of sin on a daily basis as the Bible also puts it – the state of sin is received from the first man Adam); and finally eternal death (the fixed state entered into by the individual who dies physically while he or she is dead spiritually).  It is eternal death, in particular, which is the horrible result of receiving the wages of sin.  The Lord Jesus Christ frequently described such a death as being eternal (without end) in a destiny which he called Hell.  He described Hell as a literal place of judgment (Matthew 13:42); a place of everlasting fire (Matthew 18:8); a place of torment (Luke 16:24,28); a place of weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 13:50); a place of remorse (Mark 9:44-48); of bitter memory (Luke 16:25), and a place originally prepared for the Devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).  In fact, Jesus more often warned about Hell than he spoke about Heaven.  It is not God’s will or desire that any person should be consigned to perish in Hell (2 Peter 3:9), but rather that all should come to repentance of unbelief toward him and believe on him for the salvation of the individual’s soul.  But God’s justice requires that the “soul who sins” (remains in it’s state of death or state of sin) is the one who will die eternally (Ezekiel 18:4).  So, agree with God, admitting that you are unable to save yourself and in a state of sin under God’s just condemnation for that sin and that you are in need of his salvation.

2. Believing – Then, believe that God does not want you to perish eternally in the torment of Hell because of your sin.  Believe that God loves you so much that he provided a way whereby he could still be a just, holy and righteous God, and yet pardon you.  Believe that God did not just overlook sin, but that he sent his only begotten son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to provide salvation by personally paying the penalty for sin.  Believe that Jesus Christ, whose life, death, burial and resurrection is the best-attested fact of antiquity, did come to earth to live, die, rise again and ascend to Heaven in order to provide justification and salvation for all who trust him.  Believe that he, and he alone, can save you because he has fully satisfied the just demands of God.  Believe that you can’t become righteous in God’s sight by your own effort.  Believe that he wants to save you and that he will save you.  The Bible provides a solid basis for such belief …

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17). 

“But God demonstrates his love toward us in this:  while we were yet sinners,  Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). 

God presented him (Jesus Christ) as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in his blood.  He did this to demonstrate his justice because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished – he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies the man or woman who has faith in Jesus (Romans 3:25-26). 

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures … ” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). 

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). 

“Jesus answered, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).  “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out [drive away]” (John 6:37).

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).

3. Calling – It is not enough to agree with God, admit your need, and believe that Christ can and will save you.  You must act upon those facts.  You must repent of the sin of your unbelief toward him and actively call upon him for the salvation of your soul based on the fact that you cannot save yourself because of your sins.  You must be willing to completely turn from your own efforts to save yourself or from any other hope.  You must come to Christ, calling upon him for salvation and counting on the fact that he will do what he has promised.  This means simply taking the gift of pardon and eternal life which he offers.  Merely believing about Jesus Christ without coming to him makes as much sense and is as effective as believing that a medication can successfully treat a fatal disease, but failing to take it.  Yet again, the Bible emphatically and authoritatively provides the basis for such statements:

“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18). 

The word translated “believe” here means to “rest one’s entire weight and trust on the object or person in which the belief is placed.”  It requires action in keeping with the intellectual assent of that belief.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

” … but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

The logical question you may be asking at this point is:  “how do I come to Christ and call upon him?”  The answer is that “calling upon the Lord” is just another term for praying, or talking to God.  To talk to God is not a complicated process, dependent upon some special rituals.  God has invited people to approach him through his Son in simple, straightforward terms.  In fact, Jesus approved of the dishonest, despised tax collector who simply prayed, “God be merciful to me, a sinner.”  While the exact words of your prayer to God are not of vital importance (since God sees and knows the attitude of your heart), the following is the kind of prayer that you could pray in calling upon God for salvation …

“Dear Lord Jesus:  I realize that I need you.  I admit that I have sinned and that I deserve your just, eternal punishment for that sin.  But I am sorry for my sin and I am turning to you and asking for forgiveness.  I believe that you died and rose again to pay sin’s penalty on my behalf.  I come to you and open my heart to you.  I ask you to come into my life, forgive me for all of my sin and make me your child.  I invite you to take control of my life and to cause me to be the kind of person you would have me to be.  I thank you for doing this because you have promised that whosoever calls upon you, as I am doing now, shall be saved.  I pray this in the name of your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.”

If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, I urge you to sincerely and genuinely express it to God as your prayer.  The Bible makes clear that when we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in our heart, God forgives our sins and counts us righteous, and that when we openly confess with our mouth what we have done in our heart,  God gives us assurance of that salvation (Romans 10:9-10).

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:3-7).

 

HALE-BOPP COMET AND COMING JUDGMENT PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 1:

A TRUMP AND TWO BEASTS: 

September 24, 2018:  By now, it’s rather observable that God seems to have his hand in the direct affairs of man.  This being the case, let’s take a look at a rather peculiar occurrence in September of the year 2018.  As we all may be aware, the presidential motorcade is called “The Beast.”  It is rather curious that not only did “The Beast” get an upgrade, but the method in which President “Trump” will travel has been changed.  For the first time in American presidential history, the President will travel not just in one beast, but “two” beasts.  Furthermore, this new beast being accompanied by the 2nd beast was unveiled during president “Trump’s” journey to the United Nations General Assembly.

TWO BEASTS MOTORCADE

It would be prophetically accurate to say that the Antichrist and the world government system will likely emerge from the United Nations construct …

 

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy” (Revelation 13:1).  “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the firs beast, whose deadly wound was healed” (verses 11-12).

In summary, Revelation 13 reveals two beasts.  We have “Trump” riding around the Big Apple on the back of the beast as the Beast system + the kings of the Earth gather with their apples in the Big Apple.  One can reasonably make the connection that God is throwing the prophetic hints our way that the Antichrist will soon rise from the world government platform.

TWO BEASTS OF REVELATION 13
The two beasts of Revelation 13.

Sequence of Events

1. “Trump” = Rapture – “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18).  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

2. The “two beast” presidential motorcade = the rise of the two beasts of Revelation 13 (Antichrist and the False Prophet).  Note:  In my opinion, these prophetic clues are “NOT” declaring that President Trump will be the Antichrist, but rather, Trump is the clue of the approaching rapture event and the Antichrist’s and False Prophet’s soon rise to power.  Something to ponder:  The “two beasts” were unveiled enroute to the United Nations General Assembly with “Trump” inside … But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape [Day of the Lord = The Tribulation].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” [those not in darkness but of the light = the church that will escape via the rapture] (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6).

THE NEW TWO BEASTS TAKE PRESIDENT TRUMP ON ONE OF IT’S FIRST RIDES

 

HALE-BOPP COMET AND COMING JUDGMENT PROPHECY ALERT UPDATE 2:

ARCH OF BAAL ERECTED IN WASHINGTON D.C. ONE DAY BEFORE BRETT KAVANAUGH TESTIFIED TO CONGRESS

September 26, 2018:  It is rather prophetically curious that this continuously emerging prophetic paradigm of a “Bear Rapture” would include an absolute solidifying and telling event that just occurred in the city of Washington D.C.  It turns out that “Arch of Baal” has been erected in Washington D.C. on the exact same week that Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are testifying before Congress.  The future of the U.S. Supreme Court is literally hanging in the balance, and many believe that it is quite odd that this ancient pagan symbol has been put up at this precise moment in time.  According to the official website of the Institute for Digital Archaeology, the Arch of Palmyra was unveiled on the National Mall on September 26th, and it will remain there until September 29th.  You can view a photograph of the arch standing directly in front of the U.S. Capitol building in the picture below.

ARCH OF BAAL

Just one day after this arch was put up, Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified before Congress.  Perhaps this is all just a “giant coincidence”, but things of this importance usually don’t happen by accident.  Take notice that it was put up on the Washington National Mall.  This mall happens to have the shape of a cross in it’s very design (for the details on this, please click the National Mall picture in the Evidence Gallery in the side bar section on this blog site).  The elite deeply understand that symbols have power, and the fact that the Arch of Baal has been placed directly across from the U.S. Capitol is highly significant.  Baal was a god of power, fertility and child sacrifice.  There is a strong connection between what was going on during the era of Baal worship and what is taking place in America right now.  In the end, the debate over whether or not to confirm Brett Kavanaugh comes down to the issue of abortion, and this vote in the Senate is going to have tremendous implications for the future of our country.  In ancient times, if you wanted to go to the Temple of Baal in Palmyra you had to pass through this arch, and you would also pass through this arch again on your way out. The original arch was destroyed by ISIS in 2015, but it has been reproduced, and the reproduction has been periodically displayed at important locations around the globe. It has been pointed out that an arch is a “gateway”, and many are concerned that erecting this arch may be an open invitation for the entity or entities that were originally associated with this arch.  No other ancient deity is mentioned more often than Baal in the Bible.  And ultimately, the worship of Baal can be traced back all the way to ancient Babylon, which was the center of the very first “New World Order” in ancient times. Child sacrifice was absolutely central to the worship of Baal.  When it was time for another ceremony, unwanted babies would be gathered and burned alive.  Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”  The natural consequences of such behavior – pregnancy and childbirth – and the associated financial burdens of “unplanned parenthood” were easily offset. One could either choose to engage in homosexual conduct or – with child sacrifice available on demand – could simply take part in another fertility ceremony to “terminate” the unwanted child.  Modern liberalism deviates little from its ancient predecessor. While its macabre rituals have been sanitized with flowery and euphemistic terms of art, its core tenets and practices remain eerily similar.  In fact, we are killing our babies on an industrial scale.  We have murdered far more children than they ever did in the ancient Middle East, and our fate will be the same as theirs if we don’t turn things around as a society.  And now an ancient symbol of child sacrifice has been erected directly across from the U.S. Capitol at the precise moment when the future of the U.S. Supreme Court is hanging in the balance.  The god of Baal was a central theme in the story of Elijah before his “rapture” into Heaven.  Elijah was directly involved as God’s servant in the battle against the god of Baal in Israel.  The fact that this Baal theme has emerged simultaneously with the “Bear” parallel of Russia as hinted at in 2 Kings 2:23-24 is very telling of what time it is.  It means that our departure, like Elijah in 2 Kings chapter 2, is near (See below article link for the details)

The original Arch of Baal in the Middle East was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015, but it was re-created by the Institute for Digital Archaeology using 3-D printing technology.  The arch, thus far, has been in New York City and London, and later it was placed outside a global summit in Dubai. More recently, it was constructed for the G7 Summit in Florence, Italy  The replica of a Roman triumphal arch originally built in Palmyra, Syria, essentially has been on a world tour.  But the arch isn’t just a Roman ruin. It was originally an arch for the Temple of Baal, a pagan god repeatedly mentioned in the Old Testament. The rites of Baal were marked, as mentioned above, by child sacrifice and ritual prostitution.  Here is the punchline of the point, this “Arch of Baal,” as of this writing, is scheduled to arrive at the Roman Hague World Court.  The replica arch will then be reassembled in the Hague, the site of the Dutch Parliament and the U.N.’s International Criminal Court. The Hague is described as the City of “Peace and Justice,”  The Center for Global Heritage and Development, together with the Institute for Digital Archaeology organized an event called ‘Heritage for the Future.’  BIN reported the first modern reappearance of the Arch of Palmyra was in London’s Trafalgar Square in 2016, when it was erected for UNESCO World Heritage Week.  The unveiling coincided with the beginning of a 13-day period known in the occult as the “Blood Sacrifice to the Beast,” the most important holiday for those who worship the god Baal, celebrated with child sacrifice and bisexual orgies. The arch was unveiled on April 19th, the holiday of Beltane, the culmination of the 13-day period.  The last time we saw this level of idolatry was when the Temple stood in Jerusalem. Now that we are close to the appearance of the Third Temple, idolatry is reappearing, even in popular culture among people who claim they are atheists. It is no coincidence that the arch is becoming a centerpiece at gatherings of world leaders.

It is very interesting, to say the least, that none other than former American President Barack Obama was giving a speech on September 28 in the Netherlands at the Hague about “world leadership” as the “Arch of Baal” just “happened” to have been erected directly across from the U.S. Capitol on the Washington Mall from September 26-29, which took place as the United Nations General Assembly was occurring.  And of course, the Arch was already scheduled to appear in the Netherlands as it was sitting on the National Mall in Washington D.C. as Barack Obama was speaking in the Netherlands, the next stop of the Arch.  It is supposed to be set up for one month, starting October 17, 2018, next to the International Criminal Court (ICC), which is in the Hague, Netherlands.  Therefore, the Arch of Baal has been set up during a major Satanic holiday and at least four world summits.  That’s right.  The future home of the “Roman Arch of Triumph.”  As we all may be aware, there will be a supernatural element of demonic possession that will characterize the Antichrist, likely brought about through Satanic ritualism by the global elite working behind the scenes, much like what we are seeing with the Arch of Baal (See the video “Abaddon Rising” in the side bar of this blog site).

Is this all just a coincidence?

I think not.
