The prophetic significance of the involvement of the United States in the Middle East since shortly after the 9-11 so-called “terror” attacks on America simply cannot be overlooked or overstated. Simple enough for students of biblical prophecy right? Well, something happened in October of 2002 that went largely unnoticed by even the most insightful of prophetic students and expositors. Here is the story:
The ossuary of James is said to be the very box that once contained his bones, revealed by the inscription on the side of the box. An ossuary is a stone depository for storing bones of the dead. The dead would lie in a cave for a year, then would be collected and placed in an ossuary. It was a common practice to write the name of the deceased on the exterior of the ossuary. If the inscription on the James ossuary is genuine, the inscription may indicate that the ossuary was that of James the Just, the brother of Jesus. The Aramaic inscription: Ya’akov bar-Yosef akhui diYeshua (English translation: “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus”) is cut into one side of the box. The inscription is considered
significant because, if genuine, it might provide archaeological evidence of the existence of Jesus to a largely unbelieving and skeptical world regarding all matters biblical. What is even more intriguing is the observation of when it was announced that it had been
found. In world events and biblical prophecy, nothing much seems to be by pure coincidence. When the biblical book of James is examined, one finds an end times prophecy about the “rich men” that control the earth. Today, we call them the “globalists” who are in control of the world chessboard, laboring to destroy the nation state and America to form a one world government accompanied with all of it’s evils. James singles out these Luciferic occultists and declares that God is going to judge them and their evil system when he writes the following:
“Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:1-8).
The existence of the ossuary was announced at an October 21, 2002 Washington press conference co-hosted by the Discovery Channel and the Biblical Archaeology Society. Noteworthy is the fact that the ossuary, or bone box of James, was announced exactly one year after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan due to the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon. Due to much evidence that has come to light, it is now highly suspicious that the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were a part of a much larger conspiracy than simply just a “terrorist attack” by middle eastern terrorists. The evidence seems to be pointing to a globalist cabal running our world behind the scenes to further their agenda of a New World Order. James is one who wrote of the soon coming judgment of these globalist rich men and their world government system. Is it just a coincidence that these events occurred just one year
apart, indicating that the U.S. invasion and involvement in the middle east signaled the beginning of the end of days? Was it just a coincidence that the bone box of James, the one who wrote of their judgment, was announced around this time? After much reading of the significance of world events, and seemingly insignificant events, one can only come to the conclusion that nothing is by coincidence, as can be seen when one takes a closer look. What is very eye-opening about this story is the fact that in 2003, The Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) determined that the inscriptions were forged at a much later date than the time of James and Jesus. In December 2004, Oded Golan was charged with 44 counts of forgery, fraud and deception, including forgery of the Ossuary inscription. The trial lasted “seven years” before Judge Aharon Farkash came to a verdict. On March 14, 2012, Golan was acquitted of the forgery charges but convicted of illegal trading in antiquities. It had been proven that he was not guilty of forging anything, thus indicating that the inscription was not forged at all. The extraordinary part is that the trial lasted for “seven years,” the length of time that the Tribulation period of judgment upon earth will last according to biblical prophecy. In scripture, we read of the Tribulation period being referred to as a “trial” in some translations:
“Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth” (Revelation 3:10). [NIV – New International Version].
“Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth (ESV – English Standard Version).
“Because you have kept the word of My patient endurance, I also will keep you out of the hour of the trial being about to come upon the whole inhabited world, to try those dwelling upon the earth” (BLV – Berean Literal Bible).
As already stated, nothing is by coincidence, even when it seems like it is. Look a little closer at your world, and you can see this to be the case. The announcement of the discovery of the bone box of James in October 2002 simply cannot be by coincidence given the remarkable Holy Spirit inspired prophecy of the end time globalists that James gives . It seems that America’s response to September 11 was a major, major flashing warning signal in light of this given prophecy.
