Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy
As the Double Double
series has revealed the facts concerning how prophesied events consistently
repeat in differing timelines, the events are now occurring with such rapidity
that our weekly chapters of the series are barely keeping up with the
This week’s installment is
a good example, as another event has occurred since our last weekly episode of
the series. On Friday September 11, 2020 (obviously a very significant day in
history), the Gulf Oil country of Bahrain abruptly announced they
would follow the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) decision to
normalize relations with the political state of Israel.
The pace of these developments
indicates the world is hurriedly moving to a pivotal turning point, as the
peace agreement between the UAE and Israel won’t even be
signed at the American White House until a few days after Bahrain’s
Christian Media even predicted Bahrain’s
move 2 weeks ago, as it is relatively obvious the flow of events is moving in
accord with long standing prophecies issued from this ministry. The nation of Bahrain,
for instance, is yet another member of the Organization of Arab Petroleum
Exporting Countries (OAPEC), a Ten King alliance of Arab potentates that
fulfilled the notorious prediction of Ten Kings in Revelation,
“And the ten horns which
thou sawest are ten kings, which…give their power and strength unto the
beast” (Revelation 17:12, 13).
In last week’s installment
of Double Double: Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy, we noted how the
phenomenon of doubling – which we’ve also referred to as Prophetic
Echoes – was manifested in the much publicized move of the UAE.
Starting with the fact the resurrected nation of Israel was original opposed by
seven Arab states in 1948 – making Israel “the eighth
[that] goeth into perdition” (Revelation 17:11) -- we noted
how the UAE was comprised of Seven Emirates that
were joined together in the early 1970’s.
This eerie equation is not a
coincidence, but is evidence of a Spiritual power that continues to reverberate
within the earthly fulfillment of prophetically significant events.
A true understanding of how the
ongoing probe into how the Arab oil kings have fulfilled prophecy – even
though the vast majority of Christian prophecy figures are still seeking to
twist the events so they will conform to their faulty projections –
continues to elude prophecy observers. In recent installments of Double
Double, we have sought to show how the two prophetic themes dealing
with the Ten Kings and the Eighth Head converge in
the history of the Arab oil kings.
For example, in the most
simplistic sense, when the Antichrist figure of the Little Horn
“uproots” three of the Ten Kings, the remaining equation then
places the Little Horn in the role of the “eighth [that] goeth
into perdiction” (Revelation 17:11).
What is singularly amazing is how
prophecy pundits continue to resist the identification because it implicates
the political state of Israel in the role of the Little Horn.
Mainstream prophecy teachers are uniformly aghast at the casting, even though
the events concerning the rise of the history of the Ten Kings of OAPEC
was followed by the incredible fact that three of those kings were
“subdued” by the Little Horn “head “ of the beast, in a
strikingly accurate fulfillment of the prophecy.
The aversion to the actual facts
is a testimony to the divine authority of the Word of God, for the SCRIPTURE
pointedly tells us the Strong Delusion which has overtaken vast
portions of Christianity is because those enmeshed in the deception do not
actually love the truth – with the “truth” a symbolic
euphemism for the person of the LORD Jesus Christ.
“For this cause God shall
send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: and with all
deceivableness in unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (II
Thessalonians 2:11, 10).
For almost thirty years, this
ministry has sought to point out that a legendary love for Israel on the part
of the Christians is part of a supernatural snare (Luke 21:35) that has
been carefully orchestrated for almost two centuries – with an extensive
theological history that was transported to America from Europe many years ago.
The details of the religious
developments which resulted in the British Rapture Cult in the 19th
century are too laborious to detail in this writing, but we will note that
every time a modern “Rapture Cult” teacher avers that the doctrine
of Dispensationalism (the more scholarly name for the doctrine of the
“Rapture”) – was taught from the very beginning of the church
age, he or she is manifesting the fact that they do not truly love the
In other words, because the
Scripture says if you’re caught in this “Strong Delusion,”
it’s easier to deny the facts than it is to conform
one’s belief to the historical truth surrounding the doctrine. This is,
of course, the classic tactic of the Marxist oriented system known as the Dialectic,
as the godless theoreticians flirting with belief in the Gospel continue to
practice the formula of thesis versus antithesis equals the synthesis
– with the synthesis equating to the leavened combination of the
previous two perspectives.
“Then Jesus said unto them,
Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. Then
understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of
the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees” (Matthew 16:6,
At this point in the discussion,
the moderns usually parrot the hackneyed expression we’ll just have to
agree to disagree, while the Bible instructs the believer to do the
“If there come any unto
you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid
him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil
deeds” (II John 1:10,11).
In this series, we have shown an
ancient version of the Ten Kings was manifested in the ten city/states of the Decapolis
(with the Greek “Deca” meaning 10, and “Polis” meaning
cities), which were followed by the Old Covenant manifestation of the Little
Horn. During the Seleucid-Ptolemaic conflict which occurred in between
the Grecian reign of Alexander the Great and the full power of the Roman
Empire, the Greek speaking Antiochian strain of the Seleucids was the Syrian Little
Horn that reigned over the Decapolis.
The notorious despots Antiochus
I through Antiochus IV (with the latter known as Epiphanes)
controlled the Decapolis, and presided over the change of the
“head” of the union in Gadara, which was
“plucked up” (Daniel 7:8) and replaced by the city of Damascus.
The history is a bit convoluted, but obviously the Syrian dictators sought
tighter control over the ten city/state trade cartel through the transition.
headquarters city of Gadara was replaced, with the likelihood that other
members were shifted as well. Our last installment noted the demonic dimension
of Gadara (also known as the land of the Gergesenes – Matthew 8:28)
with the presence of the infamous tale of the Gentile herd of swine.
thesis of Double Double was again accentuated when we learned the
ten-fold configuration of the Decapolis fluctuated, with some ancient sources
suggesting at times the union was comprised by fewer than ten, as well as
others who said the Decapolis was once comprised of a total of fourteen
members. This ambiguity precisely comports with the contemporary count of the
many Arab oil potentates, as they formed multiple political confederations that
also fluctuated in their number of member states.
contemporary parallel, last week we examined how the United Arab Emirates
(UAE) was formed with six dynastic heads, but a year later the 7th
member came in. This was a “Prophetic Echo” of the Revelational
text which shows six kings, then a “seventh” which is “not
yet come,” as well as a reference to the “eighth” which
“goeth into perdition.
there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is [for a total of six at
that time], and the other is not yet come...And the beast that was, and is
not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into
perdition” (Revelation 17:10, 11).
organizational structures of multiple Arab powers continues to reverberate with
this mystical formula. For instance, the Gulf Cooperation Council
is a political and economic alliance of six oil producing Arab
states, in contradistinction to the ten original members of the Organization
of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries. The
GCC was established in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in May 1981 to foster unity among
its members based on their common objectives.
A little known fact is how In May 2011, Jordan’s request to join the
GCC, which had been first submitted 15 years earlier, was accepted, making
Jordan the seventh. Although a plan for accession into the GCCGulf Cooperation Council (GCC),
continue to tell the world the GCC consists of an economic alliance of six
Middle Eastern countries – Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab
Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman.
Obviously, with Jordan as the seventh,
Israel is once again the “eighth” in this reckoning. Jordan
is, by the way, only the 2nd Arab state (after Egypt) to make peace
Confusion frequently surrounds
the subject on many fronts. If, for example, one searches the Internet for
information on the Arab states of the oil producing Gulf region, many websites
will return the following:
“The Arab states of the Persian
Gulf are the seven Arab states which border the Persian Gulf,
namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United
Arab Emirates (UAE)” (Wikipedia, BarnesandNoble.com, etc).
Even though the political configuration
of our complex world is constantly shifting, Christian Media seeks to
base our perspective on the unchanging Word of God. In this regard, even though
the facts conclusively identify the modern state of Israel as the Little
Horn – the “eighth” [that] goeth into
perdition” (Revelation 17:11), many believers are unaware that
both testaments speak of seven nations that have historically
opposed the people of Israel.
“About the time of forty years
[the LORD] suffered [Israels’] manners in the wilderness.
And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he
divided their land to them by lot” (Acts 13:18, 19).
As the Arab component of the Islamic
nations fueling an ongoing hatred of Israel was “subdued” (Daniel
7:24) in the events surrounding the secretive 1974 restructuring of
American/Arab relations, the Islamic states of Turkey, Iran (as well as
ambitious nations such as Russia), and non-oil producing Moslem nations moved
to the forefront of Israeli antagonism.
The rapidly accelerating pace of Gulf
oil nations now embracing the American/Israeli military partnership indicates
advance knowledge of a forthcoming confrontation, in which Gulf oil nations are
quietly drawing closer to Israel, because they are aware of American/Israeli
military power that is not commonly known. Thus, the collective of Arab oil
kings, who have “one mind” (Revelation 17:13) are drawing
closer together, in anticipation of a massive forthcoming destruction, as they
see Israel as the inevitable victor.
“And they worshipped the
dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast,
Saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with
him?” (Revelation 13:4).
Islamic prophetic tradition suggests the
Moslem Saviour figure, known as the Mahdi, will be identified as
the one who is able to destroy Islam’s ancient Jewish foe. Because of
this, Christian prophecy figures, already leavened by their false perspective
that the flesh and blood nation is scheduled to be spiritually revived after
the so called “Rapture,” have adjusted their prophetic expectations
to identify this leader as the “Antichrist.”
Further, this coming clash is usually
called Gog and Magog, described in the book of Ezekiel.
“Thou shalt come from thy place
out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee…and thou shalt
come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land” (Ezekiel
The fact is, the False Prophets
that have been integrated into the leadership of Spiritual Israel – still
erroneously called the “Church” – are subject to the same
deceiving spirits that long ago seized the leadership of the resurrected Jewish
nation, as well as the Islamic powers that are presently jockeying for
“For they are the spirits of
devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the
whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty”
But further details on the true story of
the Spiritual forces now unleashed in the heavenlies will have to wait for the
next installment of Double Double: Déjà vu In Bible Prophecy.
