COULD 2017 BE A JUBILEE YEAR?
Exclusive: Joseph Farah shares uncanny prophecies of 13th-century rabbi
JERUSALEM – Several years ago, Ludwig Schneider, a German-language scholar, discovered an amazing prophecy dating back to 1217 by a scholarly and highly respected rabbi by the name of Judah Ben Samuel.
He was quite famous in his time as the initiator of the Chassidic Ashkenaz, a movement of Jewish mysticism in Germany. He founded a yeshiva in Regensburg and secured many pupils. Legend has it that, as a young man, he was an excellent bowman but knew little or nothing about daily prayers. But once he got serious about his faith, the legend goes, he performed many miracles. It is also reported that he was given a prophecy about the exact year of Israel’s rebirth as a nation and its redemption.
So renowned was his work, the Bishop of Salzburg asked him to serve as his personal seer.
Because most of his writings were published so long ago – before the invention of the printing press – and in German, few copies have survived. But Schneider has a copy of Judah Ben Samuel’s prophecy about the nation of Israel and the messianic era and has translated the highlights of it into English and other languages for the magazine Israel Today.
The prophecy involves the Jubilee Year cycle every 50 years. I should point out there’s much controversy about pinpointing Jubilee Years because they have not been observed in Israel since ancient times, while no one is 100 percent certain about when they should occur on the modern Hebrew calendar.
However, in the year Judah Ben Samuel died, 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. In fact, the Ottoman Empire, as it would become to be known, did not even really exist yet in 1217.
According to Judah Ben Samuel, 1217 was a Jubilee Year. If he was right, that would also make 1517 a Jubilee Year.
Exactly 400 years after the Ottoman Turks took control of Jerusalem in 1517, they were driven out of the city and the Holy Land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of Gen. George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.
But it gets more interesting still.
The rabbi also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee, Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land.”
This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.
Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49 Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part. That strip of land was considered and even called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians.
It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire “west bank” of the holy land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.
It certainly would be significant if indeed both 1917 and 1967 were Jubilee years, considering the significance of what happened in Jerusalem in those years. But it gets better.
The rabbi also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee, Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. The 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in – 2017.
What should we expect to happen in 2017? I will leave that to your imagination.
But one thing is certain: Judah Ben Samuel made some truly remarkable prophecies that came to pass. (11/18/2016)
Chapter 41 "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESSPIT" by S.N.Strutt © Oct 2014
The Final “Nuclear War” and the main End-time Events
(SEE BELOW, FOR THE "Seven-Year Covenant" & the "7 YEAR REIGN OF THE ANTI-CHRIST")
The Final “Nuclear War” and the main End-time Events yet to come, according to the Bible.
Ever since I was a kid, there has always been the spectre of a possible nuclear war, hanging over the heads of the whole world. In 1963, we had the Cuba
missile crisis, during the presidency of John F Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev of Russia. In 1967 we had the 6-day Arab-Israeli war in the Middle East, which could have easily exploded into something much bigger. In 1973 we had the OIL embargo seemingly created
by the oil-rich Arab nations, and as a direct result, an oil price crisis for the West. In 1973 the world almost collapsed, due to a severe economic downturn. In 1987 we had another serious economic downturn. We have had major financial crashes every decade
since. Last of all, was 2008, and since then the world has not really recovered, but seems to be constantly hovering on the brink of a seemingly imminent total financial collapse of the dollar. We all know that the whole world is inter-dependent on the dollar,
as its reserve currency, & that if the dollar collapses, then like dominoes all of the currencies will go down. During Sept 2013, we almost had a major confrontation between Russia and America and its allies, over Syria and Iran. Now the above is what
we have observed on the surface, but digging deeper we find the big Bankster Elite in the form of the Illuminati and their many subcompanies, have ruled for centuries & are deliberately undermining the whole world’s financial system. Firstly they
gained control over just a few countries, but especially during the past century over many countries. Of course they have been working mostly behind the scenes of the biggest governments of the world. Let’s look at the facts: - around 300 families control
around 2/3 of the world’s real wealth. They control America, Russia, China, Europe etc. Where do they not have influence and control? If these facts are true, then why have we had literally thousands of conflicts between the nations, which have killed
hundreds of millions of people, in the past century alone? If there is so much money around why wars? The world’s finances are controlled and dictated by the Elite, who are not loyal to any nation, but only to their own agenda. The Elite, most obviously,
are the ones who have often deliberately set-up the conditions, to bring the nations to their knees in fear and thus create big wars. This helps them to get rid of “the over-population” problem or as Hitler was encouraged to do with the Jews, in
some nasty form of eugenics. Tragically millions have died because of these very wicked merchants, as the bible so accurately describes them to their hideous, diabolical shame. (Revelations 6.5-6, Revelations 18.23, Hosea 12.7 “He is a Merchant, the
balances of deceit are in his hand and he loves to oppress”.) The Illuminati’s big dream is to create a One World Government, in order to achieve world domination, and eventually with the help of their charismatic leader, the infamous long-awaited
Anti-Christ, enslave every human-being on earth with the famous Mark of the Beast implant! In spite of the fact that since the 2nd world war, there have been countless dangers of possible nuclear war, total economic collapses on a world scale, not to mention
all of the other horrors that are currently happening on this planet in order to deliberately make the world’s population infertile, poison the masses through such things as constant chemtrails, fluoride, chloride in the water. Sicknesses forced on the
peoples of the earth through enforced inoculations and vaccines containing mercury and other dangerous substances. They often scare the masses with the threat of this disease or that plague .We also have the GMOS , and the deadly effect, that they are having
as part of Agenda 21 of eugenics , orchestrated by the UN. From reading many alternative media sites in the USA, there appear to be many, who think that Obama, has sold America down the drain to the communists. They state, that there are, hundreds of
thousands of UN troops including tens of thousands of Russian troops already inside America, and even more Chinese. No one seems to know what they are doing there? The official explanation is that they are doing joint exercises with the American soldiers.
Well, not exactly, in fact the Russians are doing military exercises with FEMA, which is apparently the private army of Obama, so it is claimed. This is just the tip of the ice-berg of some of the world’s horrendous ongoing problems. I’m sure you
can think of hundreds of others. The point I want to make is that there is so much propaganda on film and audio as well as in written form, by the Media and Alternative media about man destroying himself one way or the other. What is one supposed to make of
all of this often opposing information? As a Christian, I want to point out, that there are some very good prophecies in the bible which tend to indicate that the world is not going to end quite yet. . On the one hand, very often, the Alternative media are
right, about many nefarious, deceptive, and downright evil deceptions being orchestrated by the Elite etc. It is true that the Main Media are frequently merely the stooges of the Elite, and printing what the Elite want the masses to know. It is amazing to
me how that most of the time, the Main Media misses most of the really important news,(deliberately), while they babble on about some completely insignificant so-called news, which is not really news, but more like ancient history a lot of the time, or some
vain, insignificant matter. They are simply ordered not to print anything that would shed a bad light on the ruling powers themselves, (who probably own their newspaper or TV station), as well as the proxy governments they support. So we have two extremes,
where the main media is mostly putting everyone to sleep with their favourite TV program, or the latest fashion and superficial news, entertainment etc. On the other hand you have the alternative media, which seem to “get too excited” and often
“jump to conclusions” about world events. They often predict that something “dire is about to happen” from a possible nuclear war last Sept with the Syrian crisis, to telling us in a popular WW III documentary, that very soon Obama
will lead us into a nuclear war! God help all of us! Many writers, even on the fringe of the accepted churches, write about the horrors, which will soon come on the earth according to different scriptures in the bible. This is where we can generally agree.
Matthew 24, Joel 2, Isaiah 24, etc talk about terrible things happening in the very last days of man’s rule on earth, including nuclear war (Zechariah 14.12 Revelations 18.2,8 ) God calls the great commercial systems of man “Babylon the Great Whore”,
with the Mother of harlots most likely being the United states of America, as the giant leader of Capitalism. The American protestant churches however, like to point the finger at the Pope, and claim, that he must be the coming anti-Christ or false prophet.
If we look at history, we find that the protestant churches, for hundreds of years have been claiming that the next pope is the leader of Babylon the Great, and might be the anti-Christ? They point out that it must be Rome, as Rome sits on 7 hills. There are
7 mountains mentioned in (Revelations 17.9). These religionists, in speaking against the Catholics, are like the black cauldron calling the pot black!
My personal conviction however, is that the USA is the most guilty nation on earth, when it comes to absolute hypocrisy. On their own currency, the dollar it states: “In God we trust”. Really? I think the god of America, is in fact materialism! I do think many nations are absolutely fed-up with all of America’s empire building, all around the world, at the expense of the poor. According to many different verses in the bible, there will eventually come a nuclear war, but it cannot come quite yet, and I will explain why. Here is a section of a class on the future end-time events, which according to the bible have yet to transpire, before man’s reign on earth is over, at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ at the battle of Armageddon. (Revelations 19.19)
At some point, possibly toward the end of the Great Tribulation or even after the Rapture , 10 “kings” will join forces with the Antichrist and together they will destroy with fire “Babylon, the Great Whore” in a final judgment. From a number of Scriptures, this sounds like 10 of the leading nations of Europe (or perhaps “10 kings” refers to the European Community as a whole) will unite with Russia and turn on the United States in a nuclear first strike that will destroy her in “one hour” (Revelation 17:12-13,16-17; 18:2,7-8). How and when all of this will play out is still unclear, but as the time draws nearer, we will see exactly how these verses will be fulfilled. With all of the above in mind, it is an absolute miracle of God, as far as I am concerned, that the whole world has not already been blown sky-high. It is my conviction that in spite of the great evil of a small number of individuals, and their puppet regimes, not to mention the much more sinister devilish spiritual powers behind them, who some call “aliens” but are in fact devils from the spirit world, and thus multi-dimensional beings. I am convinced that so far the angels of God have prevented a lot of things from going wrong, & that is for certain in answer to the prayers of millions of people from many walks of life The Devil (Lucifer) thinks he is winning, and is determined to destroy mankind; when in the bigger scheme of things he is losing big time!
Satan is always boasting through his people about all of the terrible things that he can do and will do to mankind. However he is not able to perform most of them, most of the time. (Philippians 1.28 “In nothing be terrified by your adversaries.”) It is very important to understand the correct order of events as foretold by the bible prophets, and not go berserk over each new piece of scary or very negative information, but to balance scripture with scripture. There are two main dangers today:
1) Falling asleep lulled to be oblivious to the real dangerous and precarious situation of this planet and the real needs of others
2) On the other side of the coin believing every scary end of the world scenario that comes along, without really knowing the Bible and the scriptures.
God’s Word is the ultimate authority, when it comes to future events, & when they will happen. Most of the time God seems to keep the exact dates of future happenings mostly a secret until right before the events happen! (Amos 3.7 “Surely the Lord God will do nothing accept He reveal His secrets unto his servants the prophets”.) Here are some of the mains point which yet have to happen, before the end of the world and the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ.
An overview of end-time Bible Prophecy
The Bible not only tells us about yesterday, it also tells us about tomorrow. It is full of thousands of detailed prophecies that describe specific people, places, times, situations, and events. Many of these prophecies are about the final period of man’s kingdoms on earth, a period known as the End time--the time in which we are now living.
1 Signs of the Times
The Bible gives us numerous “Signs of the times,” Sgns and signals that we are to watch for so we can know exactly how close we are to Jesus’ return. These signs include drastic upsurges in the number and severity of wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes (Matthew 24:7); the Gospel being preached in all the world (Matthew 24:14); dramatic increases in international travel and scientific knowledge (Daniel 12:4); a great “falling away” from the true God as “evil men and seducers grow worse and worse” and deceive many (2 Thessalonians 2:3; 2 Timothy 3:13 KJV); unprecedented selfishness and lack of natural affection (Matthew 24:12; 2 Timothy 3:1-4). All this results in “distress of nations,” with “men’s hearts failing them from fear” (Luke 21:25-26)--signs that are all obviously being fulfilled today more than ever before.
2 Rise of the Antichrist
One of the most important signs of the End-time is the rise of a totally godless anti-Christ world government led by a demonic dictator who will actually be fully possessed by Satan himself, the world leader known as the Antichrist. In desperation, the world will turn to this political superman, hoping that he will be able to solve pressing problems, cure economic ills, unite international politics, end religious squabbles, and defuse the nuclear time bomb (Daniel 8:23-25; 11:21,24; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).
3 Signing of the Covenant
The Antichrist will sign a Seven-Year Covenant, or agreement, by which he will bring a measure of world peace by reconciling the world’s major religions (Daniel 9:27a). Through this covenant he will also somehow settle the current crisis in the Middle East by working out a compromise between the Arabs and the Jews, enabling the Jews to rebuild their Temple and resume their religious animal sacrifices (Daniel 8:11; 9:27; Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:4). During the first half of the Antichrist’s seven-year reign, people are going to think that he is wonderful because he will have brought some peace, restored the world’s economy, redistributed the wealth, helped the poor, solved the Middle East crisis, and promised religious liberty (Daniel 11:21-24,39).
4 Breaking of the Covenant
But suddenly, halfway through his seven-year reign, the Antichrist will break the covenant (Daniel 9:27b), invade Israel from the north (Daniel 11:28-31), abolish all traditional religious worship (Revelation 13:7-8), declare that he himself is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4), and demand that all the world worship him and his “image,” which could be some kind of computerized robot. The false prophet--the Antichrist’s chief aide, who deceives the world-will make this image to the Antichrist (Revelation 13:11-14) and place it at the site of the rebuilt Jewish Temple (Daniel 11:31). This image, which the prophet Daniel referred to as the “abomination of desolation,” will “speak” and somehow have power to cause those who refuse to worship it to be killed (Revelation 13:14-15). Jesus said that when we see this abomination of desolation standing at the Temple, we will know that the last three and a half years of man’s rule on earth has begun--a time of “great tribulation” (Matthew 24:15,21).
5 The Great Tribulation
During this final three-and-a-half-year period, the Antichrist will enact a mandatory one-world credit system, creating a cashless society. The Antichrist government will use this new credit system to try to force everybody to submit to and worship the
Antichrist, because no one will be able to buy or sell without a personal credit number, the “mark of the Beast,” in their hands or foreheads,(computer chip implant) (Revelation 13:16-18). But God’s children and many others will refuse to
worship the Antichrist or receive his mark, and the Lord will take care of them (Revelation 12:6, 14).
While the Antichrist and his followers are persecuting and trying to kill their enemies, God is going to let loose pestilences and plagues, some released from the Bottomless Pit, that will attack the followers of the Antichrist (Revelation chapter 8; 9:1-11; 11:3-6). The Tribulation will be like the last days of the children of Israel in Egypt, before Moses led them out. God’s prophets will do mighty signs, wonders, and miracles to defend the Gospel and God’s children, while God sends plague after plague on their enemies (Revelation 11:3, 5-6). A number of wars and the Antichrist’s worldwide persecution of all who refuse to worship him will make the Tribulation a time of trouble “such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21). But the Bible also tells us in several places and in several corroborating ways exactly how long the Tribulation will last--three and a half years, or 42 months, or 1,260 days from when the Antichrist sets up his image at the Temple. God revealed this to encourage us to hang on and keep going for Jesus during what will be a very difficult period for Christians (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13:5; 12:6, 14; 11:3). During this time, “the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. And those of the people who understand shall instruct many” (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 13:5; 12:6, 14; 11:3). The people of the world are going to be more desperate for the truth than ever, and those who know God’s Word and are faithful witnesses for the Lord are going to teach and encourage millions. In spite of all that the Devil’s forces will do to try to stop them, millions of God’s children will keep going for God till the very end.
6 Nuclear War
At some point, possibly toward the end of the Great Tribulation or even after the Rapture (point 7), 10 “kings” will join forces with the Antichrist and together they will destroy with fire “Babylon, the great whore” in a final judgment. From a number of Scriptures, this sounds like 10 of the leading nations of Europe (or perhaps “10 kings” refers to the European Community as a whole) will unite with Russia and turn on the United States in a nuclear first strike that will destroy her in “one hour” (Revelation 17:12-13,16-17; 18:2,7-8). How and when all of this will play out is still unclear, but as the time draws nearer, we will see exactly how these verses will be fulfilled.
7 The Rapture
At the end of the final three and a half years, “immediately after the tribulation of those days”--just when the Antichrist thinks he has the world in his grasp, Jesus will return to rescue all of His children out of this world. The Antichrist’s forces will be shocked as they, too, see the Lord coming in the clouds of Heaven with power and great glory (Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 1:7). When Jesus returns, all of God’s saved children will be gloriously resurrected in what is known as the Rapture. The apostle Paul writes: “Behold, I tell 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 trumpet” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). The graves of all the Christians who have already died will burst open and they will receive new supernatural bodies, like Jesus’ body after He was resurrected. “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
8 Marriage supper
In the Rapture, Jesus has come back to catch His bride, His Church, out of the evil clutches of the Antichrist and to whisk her away to unite with Him and each other in the grandest, most glorious and thrilling wedding party that’s ever been held, the great marriage supper of the Lamb in Heaven, where the Lord will reward all His faithful children with beautiful, eternal “crowns of life” (Revelation 19:7-9; 2:10).
9 Wrath of God
After the Lord rescues and raptures His children to be with Him, the horrific vials of the great “wrath of God” will be poured upon the Antichrist and his evil forces still remaining on earth--the most horrible plagues the world has ever known! God’s angels of judgment are going to give the Antichrist and his forces what they deserve (Revelation 11:18; 14:9-10; 16:1-11).
10 The Battle of Armageddon
On a plain in what is now northern Israel, the Antichrist will lead his armies in this major campaign against those who still oppose him. But Jesus and His army of saints--all of His born-again and now resurrected children from throughout the ages--will return to earth on majestic white horses to utterly defeat and destroy the Antichrist and his evil forces in the apocalyptic Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16; 19:11-21).
11 The Millennium
The earth will be restored to a perfect, Garden-of-Eden state (Isaiah 11:69; 14:7; 65:25; Hosea 2:18), and Jesus and His saints will set up the kingdom of Heaven on earth (Daniel 2:44; 7:18, 22, 27; Revelation 5:10). The Devil will be bound and cast as a prisoner into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3), and the world’s unsaved inhabitants--those who survived the Battle of Armageddon--will be forced to do what’s right. Then and only then, under the righteous rule of Jesus and the saints, will all wars cease. The world will at last be governed fairly and well with true justice, liberty, peace, plenty, and happiness for all (Isaiah 2:4; Revelation 2:26; 20:46). This thousand-year period is known as the “Millennium.” During the Millennium, the resurrected saints will have new supernatural bodies with amazing powers like Jesus had after His resurrection (Philippians 3:20-21; Luke 20:36)--invincibility; complete freedom from pain, sickness, and death; abilities such as being able to fly, appear and disappear, change their appearance, read minds, communicate with each other telepathically, and stop wrongdoers with as little as a thought or a glance (1 John 3:2; John 20:19,26; Luke 24:31; Acts 10:40-41). Those on earth will still be in natural bodies, like the ones we have now, and will have none of the saints’ supernatural powers, so they will be fairly easy to rule over with the love, wisdom, and power of Jesus and His personal leadership. Because everyone will see God’s glorious power and kingdom, there won’t be any unbelievers in the Millennium (Hebrews 8:11; Habakkuk 2:14). But sad to say, there will still be some unreceivers--those who won’t yield or obey, but rather choose to stubbornly and defiantly rebel when they get the chance, at the end of the Millennium (Isaiah 26:10).
12 The Battle of Gog and Magog
At the end of the Millennium, Satan will be released for a “little season” from the Bottomless Pit..
..where he has been imprisoned--just long enough for him to deceive those unconverted rebels who will again follow Satan to the full, in open rebellion against the Lord and His government. This rebellion will result in the catastrophic Battle of Gog and Magog, in which God will send down fire to devour them completely. In fact, it is such a horrible fire that it will completely burn up the surface of the planet, and the atmospheric heavens will roll back like a scroll and depart with a great noise (Revelation 6:14; 2 Peter 3:10). The entire surface of the planet will then be recreated into a beautiful new Earth with no more seas (though there will likely still be bodies of water), no more pollution, and no more Devil, for he will have been cast into “the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:7-10; 21:1).
13 The Great White Throne Judgment
After the climactic Battle of Gog and Magog, the unsaved of all ages will be resurrected for the final Great White Throne judgment, where “the books are opened” and they will be given their final sentences according to their works and assigned to their places in the hereafter (Revelation 20:11-13). The worst and most cruel and wicked will be sent to Hell or Purgatory for punishment and purging, while those who tried to be good but were unsaved because they had not heard the Gospel, whose names will be found in the Book of Life, will be given a chance to receive Jesus and enjoy the marvellous new Earth (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4; 1 Peter 3:18-19).
14 The new Heaven and new earth
God’s great heavenly city will then descend from above to the beautiful, recreated planet Earth, and God Himself will dwell with us, right here on earth (Revelation 21:1-3). The heavenly city will measure nearly 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometres) long, 1,500 miles wide, and 1,500 miles high (Revelation 21:16). The entire city is made of pure gold, like clear glass (Revelation 21:18), and through those transparent walls we will be able to see out onto a beautiful, fully restored and re-created earth, which will be populated by new nations who will truly have learned the righteousness, goodness, and love of God. And eventually, because of God’s mercy and justice, all punishment on earth and under the earth will end. Almost everyone who has ever lived will finally be reconciled to God and live either with the elect within the heavenly city or else outside the city. “For God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). “Who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow ... and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11).

VAMPIRES, UFOs, GIANTS, and LARGE ROBOTS SCARING PEOPLE IN THE LAST DAYS
I recently came across the following very interesting story on a website of a good friend of mine. It would seem that it was originally a dream that became a nightmarish reality, as soon as the writer of this story awoke from a very vivid dream. I thought it was very interesting and I hope you do also:-
A Revelation of Things to Come!
(A dream turned nightmare)
1. I had the strangest experience!
When I went to bed the sun was still quite bright, so I didn’t leave a light on. We had closed the shutters when we started taking a nap, but I left the door to the entrance hall open just enough so a little daylight from the bathroom window would show through the crack and act as a light.
2. I went to sleep and apparently it must have happened just before I woke up, I had this crazy dream.
3. We were at this great big farm. It’s not any place we’ve been, it was totally different.
4. Everybody was busy and some were in the living room talking.
5. There was a lot of activity going on, that I can’t describe it all right now. The main thing was that I was just trying to keep order and see that things were all as they should be.
6. I walked out and down the little front dirt road and down a little hill. It was dusk or twilight.
13. Just as I started to walk into the barn all of a sudden somebody yelled, “Here they come! They’ve come just like they said they would, and the title of that movie “Close Encounters of the 3rd kind” flashed across my mind, the first contact with the flying-saucer people that had come, although I hadn’t seen it.
14. I looked up in the sky and here came theses big balls rolling along, about as big as those great big push-balls they used to have; balls that are higher than a man’s head, great big balls, 5 or 6 feet or about a couple of meters in diameter.
15. They had crazy faces sort of painted on them, or that was my first impression, and some seemed just like one big eyeball. but they all seemed like they were alive!
16. Everybody was frightened and running from them, almost like an invasion! They were dancing through the sky and sort of rolling and rollicking, like they were playing and having fun, but nevertheless, they were also trying to frighten us, or at least were amused at our fright.
17. Then I saw this huge giant coming! He must have been 25 feet high and was walking along behind them. It was as though he was directing them.
18. He was in a very strange kind of a space suit or something, very dark-coloured, almost black. I think it was very deep purple, skin-tight** He almost looked like he was in a suit of armor, some kind of material, like that guy in “star wars” and he had this funny headgear on.
19. He had a rather strange head with staring scarey eyes, big pointed ears and kind of a sharp nose.
20. He was walking along almost like a robot, like he wasn’t too agile but was clomping along directing all these balls that were shooting around in the sky. They were shooting just over our heads and then way up. They’d zoom down to frighten people, just like they were laughing when they’d scare somebody and they’d run. So I ran into the barn and watched through the window.
21. This huge giant kept walking right toward the barn. He stooped down and looked through the window, his huge face filling up the whole window cackling and laughing at me, “ah ha, I found you. There you are! You don’t think you’re really going to get away, do you?”
22. So I ran out the other end of the barn and here they came from that direction too!--These giants walking and the balls shooting out of the sky! By this time, there were some very pretty girls with them in the same strange kind of suits and somewhat the same facial appearance.
23. I don’t know how to describe their heads, or the headgear. I don’t know whether it’s heads or headgear. have you ever seen girls wear those rabbit hats with the big ears sticking up, like the playboy bunnies wear sometimes?
24. It’s kind of a hat that fits around on their face like a helmet with two big ears on top, only theirs were sharp pointed ears and their faces almost like beaks, and they resembled the giant.
25. One girl ran toward me like she was so happy to see me and she was gonna grab me, but I didn’t like her, so I turned around and ran back into the barn, but she caught up with me and pounced on me anyhow.
26. The feeling I had was that she threw her arms me and she sunk her beak or her teeth into the back of my neck just like a vampire. Then this real funny feeling just flowed over me. It was very pleasant in a way & it felt real good, almost like she’d injected something, and it was just like I went to sleep.

"The favored are privileged souls that swear allegiance to the Devil, and seal their fate with him.
They were so rotten in life, that now in death the rulers of darkness reward them with certain positions of service. Sometimes transforming them into the animal form that most closely resembles the kind of person they were in life.”
“You mean that these stories of humans turning into werewolves and vampires and birds of prey have some basis in fact? Lycanthropy is a real thing?”
“Yes, at this level, (in Hell or Hades) it is very common for souls to be transformed into animals.” (Steve: I will most more on LYCANTHROPHY later.)

Chapter 37 from "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT" by S.N.Strutt © Oct 2014
UFOs & THE RISE of the ANTI-CHRIST *
A simple search of, “UFOs”, or, “Flying Saucers”, reveals these to be the Angels, or Fallen Angels, to most people aliens, and/or of a spiritual nature, both good and bad. The following is strictly a Biblical re-examination of certain scripture references only. It’s already commonly understood what biblical publications have to say on the subject. Whereas, things that were written nearly two thousand years ago or more, may possibly be seen in a little different light, and possibly with some new and added dimension, previously not considered until now, given the backdrop of modern times living in the “twenty-first century”. None of this is absolute, as in, “thus saith the Lord”, but rather a little “food for thought”, that possibly, some of these scriptures, may have more to say than previously realized. The basis of this very brief “thesis”, is the idea put forth in “Close Encounter” * a prophetic dream given to a good personal friend about an “Invasion from outer space, what a way for the Antichrist to arrive!” written in 1978. If so, would the truth really be that much stranger than fiction? Or, has Hollywood been a little more than instrumental, in preparing the masses for such an event? Howbeit, not to receive the Antichrist, but rather a superior intelligence from a distant star system, who will arrive at just the right juncture in world history, as our saviours, being scientific gods, with all the answers facing the human race and planet earth.
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24:24)
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation 12:9)
These scriptures tell us what’s coming is going to be so deceptive; it’s going to deceive the whole world. And the Lord warned His disciples of this, so that they, so that we, upon whom the ends of the world are come, would not be deceived, looking after those things which are coming on the earth. (1 Cor 10:11, Luke 21:26) It’s commonly understood the Lord’s mention of the very elect, is not in reference to Christianity at large, but rather to His most dedicated followers, the very elect. This begs the question as to, what in the world could possibly be so deceptive that the whole world would be deceived? Even to the point that the armies of this world would unite together, believing they could possibly defeat the Lord, and His armies coming in the clouds to take over this world? (Rev 19:19)
Regan’s Alien speech to UN General Assembly on an ET Alien threat * (Sept 21, 1987)
“I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.” (President Ronald Reagan, from a speech with President Mikail Gorbachev, 1988)
If this world was somehow deceived into believing, the Lord’s coming with the armies of heaven, had absolutely nothing to do with God, but rather was a hostile “alien invasion”, from another star system or galaxy. Just as former President Ronald Reagan was known to speculate on several occasions, this world would unite and fight together against an alien threat. Such a scenario was depicted in the Hollywood blockbuster “Independence Day”.
We’ve often referred to the Lord’s coming, with the armies of heaven, as an Invasion of planet earth. (Rev 19:11-16) Which indeed it will be. But the Bible also makes reference to another invasion of planet earth, that takes place at least three and a half years before the Lord and the armies of heaven come down.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the dragon was cast out, ...................he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.........Woe to the inhabiters of the earth................for the devil is come down unto you,” (Rev 12:7-12)
It’s somewhat been assumed but not fully addressed, that when the Devil and his angels are cast out of heaven to the earth, that they’ll be “invisible” spiritual beings, entering the bodies of humans by possession. However, if we consider the fact that angels, as well as fallen angels, do have bodies. Super-natural bodies. There are several examples in the Bible of the Lord’s angels appearing as men, with bodies that could be touched, seen walking, heard talking, as well as eating physical food, and with an apparent ability to navigate, or travel between the physical and spiritual dimensions. We’re even admonished to, “entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares”. (Hebrews 13:2) On the other hand, all encounters with “demons” (known as “unclean spirits”, “familiar spirits” or “devils”) in the New Testament did not have bodies of their own, which is why they seek after a place to dwell and live, as in possession, even to the point of desiring a herd of swine, rather than nothing. It’s been suggested, that Demons may well be the disembodied spirits of the giants, that existed in the days of Noah before the flood.. (Genesis 6:1-4, Jude 1:6, 2 Peter 2:4-5)
In light of these characteristics regarding the angels, if we were to consider the more likely probability, when the Devil and his angels are cast out of heaven to the earth, with “heaven being the entire spiritual dimension or realm of existence”, that these beings would need to physically manifest themselves in our plane of existence, visibly, here on earth. Just as the sons of God did in the days of Noah before the Flood. (Genesis 6:1-4) If so, when the Devil and his angels arrive on earth, after being “cast out of heaven”, they’re not going to come begging in shameful defeat, saying, “God just kicked us out of heaven and we need a place to stay, can you take us in?” To the contrary, the Devil does not even want us to know that God exists. And he’s had the past two thousand years, and more, to plan and prepare for this eventuality, as a contingency plan if needed, like a “plan B”. And he’s no doubt been rehearsing extensively, which is more than likely what the whole modern UFO and alien abduction craze is all about. And when he arrives here on earth with his army of angels, the scriptures allude to the fact, that they’re going to arrive triumphantly, as our saviours, with all kinds of technological wizardry, signs and lying wonders. Mankind will look, and in reality seem rather primitive by comparison, and worship these beings, a “strange new God”, more than they have their previous sports idols, music heroes and movie stars. These will be Atlantean gods by comparison, and in a literal sense related. This too will be an Invasion of earth, but echoing the slogan “we come in peace”, planting the seeds of the “alien gospel”, of a superior intelligence who have arrived to oversee humanities next “evolutionary” stage of growth and development into a new era of galactic peace, space exploration, and the promised secrets of longevity and the fountain of youth. But it all comes with a price - there is no God, and all of earths holy men, prophets and saviours were simply misunderstood by the peoples of their time. Then, in time, a warning is given, of certain hostile alien forces in the universe, who are out to subjugate, conquer and exploit the weak, saying, “we have battled some of these hostile beings for thousands of years throughout the galaxies, and we have now learned they are headed toward earth. We must unite together and defeat these beings once and for all”.
If such a scenario is in any way close to reality, the future of planet earth would seem to be, a true to life - Star Wars Epic - in real-time. The theory, or possibility, does seem somewhat plausible in light of what the scriptures reveal about the future. But with the projection of enough time, technological advances, and development in all fields of scientific research and discovery, each day showers fresh new impetus on such a scenario, as being the norm, contemporary with the times, and no longer to be considered science “fiction”. There are numerous references in the Bible that may support such a scenario. Below are just a few:
“Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” (2 Thessalonians 2:9) What if we consider a “lying wonder” to be a Flying saucer? With the lie being, fallen angels, disguised as aliens, saying they’ve come from another star system, when in reality they’ve come from another dimension, the spirit world; they’ve just been evicted from?
“Because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11) The love of the truth, is the simple fact that God created the heavens and the earth. And the strong delusion being evolution takes a quantum leap into the future, after hearing the “alien gospel” from the fallen angels disguised as aliens. And believe the lie, that there is no God, just scientific discovery and advancement.
“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:26) When the original “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast was aired in 1938, a wave of mass hysteria, fear and panic, reportedly seized thousands of listeners, believing the Martian Invasion to be real. If a real Invasion of earth were to happen, such as suggested above, men’s hearts would indeed be failing them for fear, in mass, looking after (seeing) those things (UFOs - Flying Saucers) which are coming on the earth. Does this particular verse makes reference to those things (UFOs?) coming on the earth, in conjunction, with the Powers of heaven shaken. The powers of heaven will in fact be shaken when the Devil and his angels are cast out onto the earth.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” (2 Thessalonians 2:3) We’ve always understood the “falling away” to mean a departure from faith in God, etc, with the world embracing evolution. But maybe it also refers to a specific event or happening. It directly precedes the “revelation of the son of perdition”, the antichrist. Is it possible, this falling away, may actually be in reference to the Devil and his angels “falling away” from heaven, and coming down to earth? At which time something very specific and previously hidden about the antichrist is “revealed” to the world? “Remember, everything the Devil does is an imitation......., the Devil has never thought up anything new. He simply imitates God’s methods, he imitates His whole organisation. He’s the imitation saviour, the imitation messiah”. If the Devil is going to imitate God, in presenting “his son” to the world, is it possible that the antichrist does not have a human father, but is a hybrid, the offspring of the “alien” fallen angels? And that’s what would be “revealed” to the world, that was possibly kept secret? It’s been done many times before, (Genesis 6:1-4) why not now, once again? He’s called the “man of sin”. In 2 Peter 2:4, the “angels that sinned” are in reference to the “sons of God” fathering children with the “daughters of men” before the flood. There’s a lot of scriptural support behind this theory. At the same time it’s all speculation. The scientific community is rapidly making advances in the area of genetics, with the blending and mixing of species. Something that displeased the Lord so much it resulted in the Flood. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5) The world seems to be moving very quickly in the same direction, “As it was in the days of Noah”. And just as before the flood, the fallen angels may very well be involved once again, helping humanity down the road to destruction. “They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another,” (Daniel 2:43) Some see this as a reference to the fallen angels being, “They”, who would mingle their seed, with the human race, but done scientifically, as in a laboratory. Not cleaving one to another, as when a man and a women procreate. Seems to fit quite well into some of the strange stories we hear about the “alien abduction phenomena”. We shall see. Time will tell.
In the book of Hebrews 12:26-27 it says, “Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things that cannot be shaken may remain”. And in Luke 21:26 it says, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear: and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”
