Eureka! Praise the Lord!
Proverbs 25:2 -- "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."
Matthew 7:7 -- "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:"
Luke 11:9 -- "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."
Today, those of you who have spent any amount of time here have witnessed the evolution of an epiphany as we looked at these unusual plane crashes, the number 153, and the potential prophetic significance of such a number showing up quite a bit lately in real world events.
I thought that the trail of bread crumbs had ended with the Joel 2 Bottomless Pit-Locusts discovered connection to the number 153, but the good Lord just opened my eyes to something else that could be quite significant. In the end, it all points to us being on the cusp of Daniel's 70th Week and the Tribulation starting off in a big way.
Yesterday, in the "Was David Flynn Right?" piece I wrote the following:
One world currency in place...Check!
Mark of Beast in place....Check!
Peace Treaty in place....Check!
So, all we need now is the Antichrist, right? Then again, perhaps David Flynn was right all along! I think we already know who the Antichrist is and this past weekend confirmed it just as we expected it would! It's him!
So, the only thing that seemed to be "missing" was the One World Religion. Most of us, myself included, just assumed that with the Pope's and the Vatican's comments and stance from last week that the coming One World Religion would be modeled after Catholicism. Perhaps that was an incorrect assumption. If that's the case, then the only things missing from that list of "Major-Pieces-To-The-End-Times-Puzzle" were the Antichrist and the One World Religion.
Even if ultraguy is wrong about who the Antichrist is, I want us to assume for a moment that he is correct, and that the only other piece of the prophetic puzzle that hasn't been laid out, or proposed to the public at large yet, is the piece that will serve as a critical component to the One World Religion.
Now, I should mention that up until today I've always thought that the One World Religion would come about AFTER a "Full Disclosure" type of event. I just assumed that once the Great Deception occurs there would be millions upon millions of people worldwide who would demand a rewrite of all the world's major religions. The result would be a melting pot of New Age stew akin to something like the Rael Movement or even Scientology and their shared beliefs, which are directly tied to the whole "Ancient Astronaut Theory" of life being "seeded" here on this planet as some kind of "Alien DNA experiment" or something.
Have you ever done some research on the Bahá'í Faith? Thankfully, regular contributor Deb in Florida has, and she provided me with some incredible research that I'm beginning to think ties into this entire end times discussion and even this whole number 153 business!
From the Q&A portion of their website: "Founded a century and a half ago, the Bahá’í Faith is today among the fastest-growing of the world’s religions. With more than five million followers, who reside in virtually every nation on earth, it is the second-most widespread faith, surpassing every religion but Christianity in its geographic reach. Bahá’ís reside in more than 100,000 localities around the world, an expansion that reflects their dedication to the ideal of world citizenship."
The essential message of Bahá’u’lláh (the religion's Founder) is that of unity. He taught that there is only one God, that there is only one human race, and that all the world’s religions represent stages in the revelation of God’s will and purpose for humanity. In this day, Bahá’u’lláh said, humanity has collectively come of age. As foretold in all of the world’s scriptures, the time has arrived for the uniting of all peoples into a peaceful and integrated global society. "The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens," he wrote. Clearly, you can understand how deceptive this religion could become if implemented worldwide.
Bahá'u'lláh asserts, there have been successive interventions of the Divine ("Divine", huh? Which "Divine Intervention" I ask: Is it the divine intervention of the Fallen Angels or the Most High God?) in history. It has been through this influence that the innate moral and spiritual faculties of humanity have been gradually developed and the advancement of civilization made possible. The challenge of maturity is to accept that we are one people, to free ourselves from the limited identities and creeds of the past, and to build together the foundations of global civilization. The power that is awakening (which power is awakening I ask?) this consciousness throughout the world is the universal Revelation of God promised in all the scriptures of mankind's past. Bahá'u'lláh is the religion's spokesman whose teachings provide a blueprint for the social organization of the planet.
Like Deb, my conclusion is that it appears to be a multilevel belief system associated with Islam, and with evolution at its core. Bottom line: It is as anti-Christ as they come since they deny that God begot a Son just like Islam does. It is without a doubt a New World Order (NWO) type of Global Religion.
Get this though! How surreal is it that the Bahá'í Faith is just now starting to get exposure in the mainstream press and have been for the past several months now!?! This is beyond comprehension until you realize that there's a reason why all things are now being revealed and cannot hide any longer. It's because we're quickly approaching the prophesied time of the end. Deb found a South Carolina newspaper article from late 2008, believe it or not, that came to her attention with the headline: Old Testament Verse Explored In Bahai Context In "The Half-Inch Prophecy" By Inge Grunwaldt.
"The Half-Inch Prophecy" focuses on the following prophecy of the Old Testament: "In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain" (Micah 7:12).
In William Sears' version of the King James Bible this prophecy measures exactly one half an inch, but it contains a world of information. In this book, Sears makes the point that Micah’s prophecy refers to Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, who, his followers believe, is the Promised One of all peoples, races and religions. The author demonstrates, segment by segment, that it describes the enforced journeys of Bahá’u’lláh as an Exile and Prisoner from Persia to the Holy Land. In other words, we have another contender for the title that Maitreya and Benjamin Creme are positioning for. Don't worry, we'll take a much closer look at this guy very soon I can assure you.
Take a look at their Temple -- the Seat of the Universal House of Justice (the governing body of the Bahá'ís) -- located in none other than Haifa, Israel on Mount Carmel!
How is that relevant aside from the obvious?
Micah 4:1 -- "But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord…shall be exalted above the hills; and the people shall flow onto it."
At the present time the administrative and spiritual Bahá’í World Center is located on Mount Carmel, which includes the Universal House of Justice. Thus, they've really taken the interpretation of the Book of Micah quite seriously.
However, think of the implications here! As Deb commented:
How fitting! They have set up their temple at Mt. Carmel the site of Eliyah's contest with the priests of Bel of Babylon, just as in the days of the Tower of Babel! Universal Justice is not Bahai Faith as they are promoting. Universal Justice is coming. His name (power and authority), is the Word, and He will be exalted. The Spirit of Eliyah and the Bride say Come! A garden victory shout gone out...Micah 7:8 just before this so called comparison reads,"Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy..." (sin is the enemy of Lord Yah; it is sin being spoken of. Assyria is the visible cover or manifestation of it!). I am not deceived by this introduction of Bahai and a false prophet, more twisting of scriptures. I know who is behind all motives to steal, kill and destroy. The man of sin who will go into perdition the destruction and separating flames of altar fire from Yah himself. Defense of the Earth belongs to Him. There is no defense against the Truth for He is Universal justice and righteousness and vengeance is His. The watchmen have all spoken and we stand firm our songs and shouts are gone up and none will escape the separating judgments spoken by all the prophets of Yah.
In addition, I discovered that the "Tablet of Carmel" is a short tablet of only a few pages, but it is considered one of the charters of the Bahá'í administration. It consists essentially of a conversation between God and Mount Carmel. In it, God says the following to the mountain (pay close attention to this part):
"Render thanks unto thy Lord, O Carmel. The fire of thy separation from Me was fast consuming thee...Rejoice, for God hath in this Day established upon thee His throne, hath made thee the dawning-place of His signs and the dayspring of the evidences of His Revelation...Beware lest thou hesitate or halt. Hasten forth and circumambulate the City of God that hath descended from heaven, the celestial Kaaba round which have circled in adoration the favoured of God, the pure in heart, and the company of the most exalted angels...Ere long will God sail His Ark upon thee, and will manifest the people of Bahá who have been mentioned in the Book of Names."
Could this mean that a counterfeit Ark of the Covenant (perhaps the copy that is supposedly in Ethiopia) will be "revealed" and presented to the world, and that it will rest at this Temple on Mount Carmel? All the Scriptures we looked at earlier today in previous posts suddenly take on a whole new meaning don't they? Something for us to think about for sure.
So, where does the number 153 come in? It's the number of combined Arabic and Persian "Hidden Words" in the Bahá'í Faith! It is a book written by Bahá'u'lláh containing 153 short passages in which Bahá'u'lláh claims to have taken the basic essence of certain spiritual truths and written them in brief form.
Lastly, I saved the best part for the end. What prompted us to consider the Bahá'í Faith as part of this study?
Remember that Yemenia Airlines crash only 1-2 weeks after the Air France disaster? There was only one survivor -- a teenager named "Bahia"! Here full name means "Beautiful Hope". Furthermore, it means that she's the only survivor out of all the recent tragic plane crashes worldwide! In fact, I found this little factoid of importance:
Bahia Bakari, the only survivor of the Yemenia Airlines crash, can be numbered among an exclusive club. According to Airsafety.com, the aviation analysts, there have been only 13 sole survivors of airliner crashes since 1970 — six of them children (including Bahia), and each one hailed as a miracle.
Sometimes it's tough to ignore what appear to be divine messages found in real world events for us to PAY ATTENTION TO THIS! I'M WARNING YOU ABOUT WHAT'S COMING FAST! BE READY! I just think that if these were "random occurrences" they wouldn't be so frequent or so specific like they have been.
And so now we've come full circle back to where this journey began for me this morning with a commentary on the recent aviation disasters following another tragedy reported this morning out of Iran.
Unbelievable. Keep looking up!
