Biblical Prophecy

NIZHNY NOVGOROD, November 13 (RIA Novosti) – Cult followers in central Russia’s Penza Region have dug a shelter, stocked it with food and are waiting for the apocalypse, which they say is due in May 2008, a local prosecutor said on Tuesday.

A total of 29 sect members, including four children, of the so-called True Russian Orthodox church have moved into the shelter, which contains underground wells, a kitchen, monastic cells and other facilities. They wrote a letter to local authorities saying they had gone underground of their own free will.

“The inhabitants of the underground shelter have threatened to set themselves on fire if forced out,” Alevtina Volchkova said, adding that a criminal investigation has been launched against the sect leader, who calls himself Father Pyotr.

He is likely to undergo a psychiatric examination and will face up to three years in prison if found guilty of infringement of his followers’ rights. The prosecutor also said all the cult members are from other Russian regions or former Soviet countries, and some have breached Russian laws.

People, I wanted to give you all a heads-up that, according to this fellow, next Thursday, September 13, is the date of Jesus’ second coming and the Rapture.  The proof?

First, Yahshua was born in 3 bc.  This can be confirmed by His death in 30 AD.  How do we know?  Yahshua was the Passover Lamb of YHWH not the meaningless “Friday Lamb” as Catholicism would have us believe.  He was crucified on Wednesday the 15th of Abib, the Passover, in AD 30, spent 3 days in the grave (not 2 as Catholicism would have us believe) and resurrected on the Sabbath (not Sunday)… The Lord of the Sabbath.  So the ONLY year that would enable YHWH to sacrifice Yahshua as the Passover Lamb and resurrect him the King of the Sabbath would be 30 AD (15th of Abib) putting Yahshua’s birth in 3 BC as you suggest but fail to prove.  Hope that helps.


Second, allow me to provide evidence that September 13, 2000 was the beginning of the 7-year tribulation or 7 bad years of Jacob:

  1. The Gedolei Yisrael (Great Ones of Israel) declared September 13, 2000 the official beginning of the Tribulation or Times of Jacob’s trouble in a UNANIMOUS VOTE!
  2. OSLO was the 70th Week of Daniel.
  3. It was the exact date of the annulment (per Isaiah) of the 70th Week of Daniel, the ONLY 7-year false peace treaty in the history of humanity signed exactly 14 years to the day (7 good years of Joseph followed by 7-bad years of Jacob) from the date of the Second Coming (see below for proof) on September 13, 2007.
  4. It was the date that the ONLY 7- year peace treaty between any two nations in the history of humanity was annulled, and that treaty was annulled per prophecy (meaning it did not succeed) because of the battle over Jerusalem between the sons of Abraham (Ishmael and Isaac).
  5. The annulment of this treaty on September 13, 2000 lead to the breakout of a Holy War between the sons of Abraham which broke out on top of the Temple Mount per prophecy, on September 28, 2000 when Ariel Sharon declared the Temple Mount the sovereign property of Israel.  The Intifada or Holy War began.
  6. The annulment of OSLO on September 13, 2000 focused the worlds attention on Jerusalem as this Holy War engulfed the world on September 11, 2001 bringing in the House of Israel (Britain/USA) along side the House of Judah (Jews/Israel) against the Arabs (sons of Ishmael). 
  7. The Temple Mount was re-opened to the Jews after 2,300 days.  On July 1, 2003 right on schedule.
  8. The Cornerstone of the coming 3rd Temple has been paraded down the streets of Jerusalem where it was dedicated at the gates of the Temple Mount… August 6, 2003…  The Priest are in final preparations.  Jews allowed to offer the oblation.
  9. The Transgression of Desolation complete, Michael removed.
  10. Israel is building a wall around herself to separate the Jews from the Palestinians in preparation for their utter destruction in fulfillment of Obadiah 17-18.
  11. Now that we are ending the period declared by the Gedolei Yisrael to be the Times of Jacob’s Trouble, Israel has convened the Sanhedrin for the first time in 1,600 years to find and crown the coming King of Israel.
  12. Israel has abandoned Gaze in fulfillment of Zeph 2:4.

Imagine that — all this speculation about when a 7-year tribulation might occur, and all someone had to do was hold an election back in September 2000 — apocalypse by unanimous vote!  And we’ve been in it all along!

So, again, according to Paul Sides … on September 13, trumpets will apparently sound, there will be a sign in the sky, and the Rapture will occur.  Don’t forget to forward your mail.  Someone is selling invisible Rapture robes here, but please understand that I’m not endorsing them.  I think the dress code for the rapture is most likely going to be “business casual,” like the dress code at the Moody Bible Institute.

Hapless British doomsday mathematician Gordon Ritchie is back again, this time predicting that “a terrorist Dirty Bomb or Nuclear Bomb will hit the UN plaza in Midtown Manhattan somewhere in 2006Adar, i.e. on or before Tuesaday” [sic] “March 20th 2007.”   As usual, there’s a biblical basis for his latest prophecy, and he’s got some flexiproofs that lead him to the conclusion — I’ll let you inspect them for yourself.

You have to admire both his tenacity and his candor, though, as he goes through each of his failed predictions thus far:

2006Iyyar21 (May 19/20) [7 days after 2006Iyyar14]
2006Iyyar28 (May 26/27) [7 days after first mistaken date]

2006Sivan11 (June 8/9) [First day of the 2,000 pigs of Mark 5 incorrectly calculated, corrected on or before Sivan1]
2006Sivan12 (June 9/10) [First day of the 2,000 pigs of Mark 5 correctly calculated but misinterpreted]

2006Tammuz2-6 (June30-July4) [7th sabbath after 1st mistake/7th sabbath omitting 2006Sivan5/7th Sabbath lookout day]
2006Tammuz28/29 (July 25 – 27) [Assumed contest began on 911]

2006Ab3/4 (July 30 – August 1) [Assumed second ‘day’ of contest began when wheat went limit up in Chicago]
2006Ab8 (August 4/5) [Assumed second ‘day’ of contest began on non BLC day of 2006Adar28 so that 1750th day is sabbath]
2006Ab15 (August 11/12) [7th sabbath lookout period assuming 2006Tammuz2/3 and 2006Tammuz4-6 were separate sabbath mistakes]
2006Ab22 (August 18/19) [7th sabbath lookout period assuming 2006Tammuz2-6 and 2006Tammuz28/29 were separate sabbath mistakes]
2006Ab29 (August 25/26) [7th sabbath lookout period after first mistake, the entire sabbath month of 2006Tammuz as one sabbath lookout period]

2006Elul13/20/27 (September 8/9, 15/16, 22/23) [A sabbath after the 1750th day of the contest starting on 2001Tishri30 and before the end of Elul]
2006Elul30 (September 26th) [last 5 hours thereof in NYC, so that bomb went off in Elul EST but in Tishri BST]

2006Tishri10 (October 5/6) [The mid point and start of the daylight part of the Day of Jehovah]
Before 2006Tishri14 (October 10) [The day before the festival of Booths starts]
2006Tishri22 (October 17/18) [The 7th festival sabbath of the year, the great sabbath of Booths]
2006Tishri29 (October 25) or before [Last possible day for a warning bomb before 2006Tishri30]
2006Tishri30 (October 25/26) [The end of a 5 year contest starting on 2001Tishri30]

2006Chislev21 (December 15/16) [1st day after 950 days of stadium filling and 900 day ‘Day of Baal’, and 7 months after 2006Iyyar21]
2006Chislev22 (December 16/17) [7 30-day months after the church said: there is nothing at all on 2006Iyyar22, as a result of our first mistaken date of 2006Iyyar21 – Go back 7 times! – Keep looking for 7 months]
2006Chislev28 (December 22/23) [last sabbath in 2006Chislev – not yet a mistake!!!].

Even if he’s not seein’ wheels, way up in the middle of the air, at least Gordon Ritchie has a pretty realistic sense of his own shortcomings, and a whole lot of optimism.  Almost makes me want to refer to him as “plucky” rather than “hapless” …

World’s Last Chance, a group that takes reading the Bible to all-new-extremes, claims to be “exposing one of the last unfulfilled prophecies of the Bible.” Specifically, World’s Last Chance believes that they have found clues within scripture that suggest Pope John Paul II is coming back … and will be the next pope after Benedict XVI.

That’s right, as crazy it sounds, they believe that Pope John Paul II is going to magically appear here on earth and make our lives hell. With folks like this, it’s no wonder that Christians get a bum rap.

“How will the next pope be John Paul II?” says Dahlia Doss of World’s Last Chance, “According to the book of Revelation in the Bible, chapter 17, it will appear to the entire world that John Paul II has returned from heaven, but in reality, this phenomenon, as prophesied, will be a demon impersonating the deceased John Paul II.”

What happens when a hapless doomsday mathematician admits he just doesn’t know when doomsday’s going to come?

Hapless Gordon Ritchie, the hapless British doomsday mathematician at, has haplessly been predicting days upon which a terrorist dirty nuke attack would occur at the UN since the middle of last year. (Did I mention that he’s hapless?) In his latest missive to the world, he stated the following:

We now predict a terrorist Dirty Bomb or Nuclear Bomb will hit the UN plaza in Midtown Manhattan on 2006Tebbeth30 (Sundown Tuesday January 23rd to Sundown Wednesday January 24th 2007). If nothing happens by the end of Tebbeth i.e. by January 23/24, 2007, then we again really really do run out of options in our present understanding.

If my sundial is working correctly, I believe we’ve squeezed past another imminent threat.

There are only so many times that you can tell a hapless doomsday mathematician to go back to the drawing board. My sense is that this kind of abject failure is likely to take the oomph out of Mr. Ritchie’s enthusiasm for Armageddon.

Poor fellow probably needs a vacation. A getaway to Najaf might restore his faith in doom, but at this point that’s between Gordon Ritchie and his travel agent.

Fully one quarter of Americans describe themselves as Evangelical Christians, and their support for the president remains rock solid.

Cornerstone Church, a vast squat white temple in San Antonio, is rapidly becoming the movement’s epicentre, thanks to the charismatic founder, Pastor John Hagee, the rising star of America’s TV evangelists. For these evangelists, the war in Iraq is not a disaster, but the beginning of the fulfilment of biblical prophecies that culminate, possibly very soon, in a mighty struggle between good and evil at Armageddon.

This belief lies at the core of the teachings of the bespectacled pastor, who argues that Christians and Jews must make common cause against forces of darkness he identifies as Arabs, Russians and even a future president of the EU. Christians who fail in their duty will be “left behind” when the obedient are summoned to heaven.

“Listen up, president of Iran,” booms the pastor. “We are going to be your worst nightmare, Mr Ahmadinejad. The pharaoh threatened Israel, he ended up fish-food in the sea. When you say Israel is going to disappear in a sudden storm you may be predicting the way you disappear.”

War with Iran—a war that would unleash an apocalyptic scenario in the Middle East—is probable by the end of the Bush administration. It could begin in as little as three weeks. This administration, claiming to be anointed by a Christian God to reshape the world, and especially the Middle East, defined three states at the start of its reign as “the Axis of Evil.” They were Iraq, now occupied; North Korea, which, because it has nuclear weapons, is untouchable; and Iran. Those who do not take this apocalyptic rhetoric seriously have ignored the twisted pathology of men like Elliott Abrams, who helped orchestrate the disastrous and illegal contra war in Nicaragua, and who now handles the Middle East for the National Security Council. He knew nothing about Central America. He knows nothing about the Middle East. He sees the world through the childish, binary lens of good and evil, us and them, the forces of darkness and the forces of light. And it is this strange, twilight mentality that now grips most of the civilian planners who are barreling us towards a crisis of epic proportions.

These men advocate a doctrine of permanent war, a doctrine which, as William R. Polk points out, is a slight corruption of Leon Trotsky’s doctrine of permanent revolution. These two revolutionary doctrines serve the same function, to intimidate and destroy all those classified as foreign opponents, to create permanent instability and fear and to silence domestic critics who challenge leaders in a time of national crisis. It works. The citizens of the United States, slowly being stripped of their civil liberties, are being herded sheep-like, once again, over a cliff.

But this war will be different. It will be catastrophic. It will usher in the apocalyptic nightmares spun out in the dark, fantastic visions of the Christian right. And there are those around the president who see this vision as preordained by God; indeed, the president himself may hold such a vision.

More wild stuff here. Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!
