So something about that CFR symbol I ended the last piece with caught my eye.
I never paid much attention to it before, but take a look at the lettering along the bottom -- "VBIQVE". What in the world does that mean I wonder? I decided to try and find out.
I guess I shouldn't have been all that surprised to find it associated with places like Greece and Rome, or that it was a "mystery" that involved "crowns" and that this was something that showed up frequently on coins back in that day.
I also learned that the meaning of the word "VBIQVE" is a Latin word found on ancient Roman coins meaning "everywhere". Its English form is "UBIQUE", which is the root word in English for "ubiquitous", which means "everywhere at the same time" or "omnipresent". Of course.
The CFR seems to be advertising they have the same "omnipresent" power of God while attempting to spread peace throughout the world on their "white horse."
So, let me get this straight. Note the symbol of the CFR from above again and you'll see the false Christ (a.k.a. Antichrist) riding the first horse (white) of the apocalypse found in the Book of Revelation. The figure is even depicted giving the "Roman Salute", which was later copied by the Nazis. To wrap it all up we have a saying along the bottom that reads "omnipresent".
Revelation 6:2 -- "And I saw, and behold, a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer."
My kids' "Fun-With-Numbers" book would tell me to try to find a connection with the number of the above verse. Hmmm, well, we're coming up on June (6:2 = June 2nd?) and President Obama's giving a "major speech" to the Muslim world on June 4th from Egypt with the Bilderberg meeting in Israel a few days later. Could that be related and/or mean anything I wonder?
"Behold, a white horse..."
As the first of Four Horsemen, John mentions a white horse in his vision of prophecy given to him by God. That white horse was given a crown, or power, to go forth conquering presumably the world.
"The white horse probably represents a man-made peace which will be forced upon the world by Antichrist under the guise of religion and righteousness. It will be a false peace which will not stand."
A Dictionary of Bible Types, Walter L. Wilson, ©1999 Hendrickson Publishers, Inc. p. 233.
Today, there is an organization that has as its logo, a man riding a white horse and has set about conquering the nations of the world via military, banking, judicial and political means. They subscribe to the belief that they alone are the only ones qualified to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth through their plans and orchestrations. Many people now know that organization as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
Let's keep an eye on this too folks.
