That prophecy is a part of God's revelation to man; that it is included in that Scripture which is profitable for instruction (2 Tim. 3:16); that it is designed for us and our children (Deut. 29:29); that so far from being enshrouded in impenetrable mystery, it is that which especially constitutes the word of God as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. (Ps. 119:105; 2 Peter 1:19); that a blessing is pronounced upon those who study it (Rev. 1:1-3); and that, consequently, it is to be understood by the people of God sufficiently to show them their position in the world's history and the special duties required at their hands.

ESCHATOLOGICAL PROPHECIES - Col. 1

A Message for Frequent Appearance.--In the twenty-first chapter of Luke Christ foretold what was to come upon Jerusalem, and with it He connected the scenes which were to take place in the history of this world just prior to the coming of the Son of man in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (CW 23-24)

Luke 21:

24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26
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
27
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. . . .
32Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 

THE SIGN OF THE END TIME

Daniel 11

45And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. (See Biblical Research Institute Report on the Eleventh Chapter of Daniel)

Daniel 9

16O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain.

Isaiah 14

 12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Isaiah 2

1The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers. . .

10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. 11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 12For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: . . 17And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 18And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 19And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 20In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; 21To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 22Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

ESCHATOLOGICAL PROPHECIES - Col. 2

Rev. 13

11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Rev. 16:

13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For 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. 
16And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Rev. 17

1And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is 

9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

The insight of A. T. Jones that needs to be kept in mind as Roman Catholic legislation proliferates throughout America - "The papacy is very impatient of any restraining bonds"  more . . .

Ellen G. White: "When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result." (GC 445.1)

"When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with Spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and Republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan, and that the end is near." (5T 451.)

A quotation to be kept in mind and applied to current events:

"What the Jesuit Order is for the left wing of the Roman Catholic Church, Opus Dei is for its right wing. (Hegelian politics at its finest, for the Roman Catholic Church cannot lose if it has strong ties with both ends of the political spectrum!)" (From Opus Dei in the USA)

Israel's President tweets the pope a welcome

Pope's Twitter handle @Pontifex, first Tweet Dec. 12 will be a Q&A format

THE POPE - THE HOLY FATHER - PONTIFEX MAXIMUS ("Pontifex Maximus - The greatest bridge builder - he builds the bridge between Heaven and Earth.")

Pagan origin of Papal Office ("When Rome conquered the world, the paganism that had spread from Babylon and developed in various nations, was merged into the religious system of Rome. This included the idea of a Supreme Pontiff (Pontifex Maximus).")

Ralph Woodrow has suppressed his own book BABYLON MYSTERY RELIGION, source of "Pagan origin of Papal Office," in spite of its popularity; highly regrettable, since its thesis is valid and defensible.

The High Priest in Hebrews (an interesting analysis; ". . . in the Latin Vulgate (the official Bible of the Catholic Church), the word used in Hebrews for both the high priest of the Levitical priesthood, and the high priesthood of our Lord Jesus Christ, is either pontifex or pontificem. In contrast, the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church is officially titled Pontifex Maximus, which then obviously means the "highest high priest", placing the pope above the high priesthood of our Lord Jesus Christ. That is blasphemy and Antichrist!")

Harboring doubt that the Roman Catholic Church has a stranglehold on the Republican Party?:

U.S. Senate kills UN treaty that could have expanded abortion ("The U.S. Senate has voted down a treaty that opponents warned could widen acceptance of abortion, deny the parents of special needs children their rights, and compromise U.S. sovereignty. . . ."Today’s vote was a victory for human rights and for American sovereignty,” said Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, an organization that testified against the treaty."

"Article 25 of the CRPD called on nations to furnish the disabled “free or affordable health care…including in the area of sexual and reproductive health and population-based public health programmes.” Pro-life leaders warned that language could be interpreted to include abortion, as it has in the case of other UN treaties.")

Note how abortion is invariably invoked by the Religious Right as the reason for opposing public policy or legislation with which they disagree. Cf. The Abortion Controversy - Abortion Law in the Scriptures—Accidental and Induced "Inasmuch as most religious denominations take stands against abortion based on their understanding of the Holy Scriptures, it may come as a surprise that only two passages in the entire Bible deal with an induced miscarriage—one accidental, and the other planned. No other references deal with abortion, either in the Old Testament or the New Testament."

Cf.  The satanic dogma hidden in the "pro-life" movement

Watching the debate on the "fiscal cliff" or any other budgetary issue in the United States, it is essential for anyone observing the unfolding of Revelation 13 to "look under the hood" and recognize that the arguments revolve around the Roman Catholic Social Doctrine (Subsidiarity and Solidarity,) and they are unresolved because the Roman Catholic advocates range from the extreme right to the left AND the USCCB seeks a balance of Solidarity against Subsidiarity (but it is ALL Roman Catholic ideology.) Where the Pope really stands is a mystery:

Saving Subsidiarity

The Principle of Subsidiarity

Ryan, Weigel, and Subsidiarity: Politicizing the Social Magisterium

A significant step in the movement towards fulfillment of Daniel 11:45? Probably! An interesting correlation - only the Vatican has the same status of "non-member state." The following includes a contribution from [D]@gmail.com:

Palestinians win de facto U.N. recognition of sovereign state

Why the jubilant reaction of Rome? Clearly the Vatican sees a way around recalcitrant Israel to achieve its goal (Cf. Vatican, PLO approve accord on Jerusalem)

Vatican praises new UN status for Palestine, urges full sovereignty

Vatican Hails UN Palestinian State Vote, Calls For Special Status For Jerusalem (Cf. Roman Catholicism and Zionism are Irreconcilable - “We are unable to favor this movement. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem – but we could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. . . .")

Immediate ramifications

Palestinian Statehood at the UN

Israel lashing out; Israel to build thousands of new homes in occupied West Bank but she is becoming increasingly isolated. Unwavering support by the United States has been strongly related to the Jewish vote; and even moreso, the influence of Christian Zionism on the Republican Party - "The 1980 Presidential election campaign found the Evangelicals joining the conservative wing of the Republican party, where over 80% swung to Reagan. The election of Ronald Reagan ushered in not only the most pro-Israel administration in history but gave several Christian Zionists prominent political posts." (from Beyond Armageddon, below) (Cf. Challenging Christian Zionism's Christian Zionism, Evangelicals and Israel, A Catholic Narrative of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict; but this is changing (Cf.

Catholic vote is likely to tip the scale in the U.S. presidential election

From [D]@gmail.com:

Breakthrough still to come for fulfillment of Dan. 11:45: Jerusalem's Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre owes 2,3 million dollars in water arrears - "Tax exemption is a thorny issue and one which Israel has not yet resolved: This, for example, has been the sticking point in all the mixed commission’s sessions between the Vatican and the Israeli government which has been negotiating the so-called Fundamental Accord - an agreement which should set concrete rules for relations between the two – since 1994, the year in which diplomatic relations were established. For the Jewish State, accepting a tax exemption would mean recognising certain rights of Christians over those of Jerusalem, and this, right-wing religious parties will not accept."

Vatican’s twisted priorities

The crusade rages on. The "talking heads" on radio and TV express bewilderment at the apparent recklessness of Republicans' unpopular "culture wars," clearly not eager to recognize that Republicans are enacting Roman Catholic religious dogma. Is the Church of Rome over-reaching at this stage of the crusade, or has her time of ascendancy in America fully arrived?

Campaign against birth control is religious fanaticism: "But by claiming that Catholic conscience supersedes the rule of law, Dolan and others are in effect imposing their beliefs on the non-Catholic workers, patients and students at hospitals and colleges affiliated with the Church, an outcome that church-state separation sought to prevent."

The GOP war on women: "The health care of millions of women is needlessly at stake. Yet the Republicans' presidential nominee front-runners, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, have both pledged to deny funding for Title X and organization's like Planned Parenthood -- along with their promises to dismantle health care reform and the broad care it would provide to all."

Romney, Santorum and archaic ideas on fertility. (Exception taken to 'as a point-by-point guidebook to modern domestic life it [the Bible is] nearly worthless.' Examples bearing on family planning: I Timothy 5:8 - implication, no more children than the breadwinner(s) can support; 1 Cor. 7:3-5 - not a prescription for procreation only): "And now, with their crusade against birth control, the Catholic bishops are helping to articulate and elevate that unspoken and archaic value in public. Fertility is a gift from God, they say."

Influence of religion on EU decision-making is to increase, the Moscow Patriarchate believes

Politics and Morality: President Prodi on Political, Moral and Religious Values ("A few days before this intervention, Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad spoke in Oslo , at the inaugural meeting of the European Council of Religious Leaders, of the necessity to respect religious ideals inherent in many national cultures. Pointing to the fact that ‘some of the values which are characteristic of the Eastern Christian civilization are also characteristic of other models of civilization,’ in particular, of Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, and that these systems of values differ from that of Western liberalism, Metropolitan Kirill stressed that ‘the fundamental values of other cultural worlds must be included into the philosophical basis of integration in order that Europe may become a common home also for those who belong to them.’ He also called for a systematic dialogue between European politicians and religious leaders.")  The Committee of Representatives of Orthodox Churches to the European Union. Mission possible

At the heart of the controversy - the immortality of the soul (SDAs beware!!):

Ensoulment Occurs at Conception. (Cf. The Roman Catholic Church Continues Its Political Battles in its Fight Against Birth Control - "And what has the latest dust up told us about the Roman Catholic Church? That it accepts huge amounts of federal money without which their operations could not exist. That it maintains that it is above the law and does not need to follow the requirements of other institutions if its philosophies differ from that of the United States government.")

From [D]@gmail.com]:

Per Pope Benedict, ". . . the word "charity", in fact, was also used by the early Church to indicate the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the Sacramentum caritatis Christi, through which Christ continues to draw us all to himself, as he did when raised up on the Cross (cf. Jn 12:32). Therefore, to "preside in charity" is to draw men and women into a eucharistic embrace - the embrace of Christ - which surpasses every barrier and every division, creating communion from all manner of differences. The Petrine ministry is therefore a primacy of love in the eucharistic sense, that is to say solicitude for the universal communion of the Church in Christ. And the Eucharist is the shape and the measure of this communion, a guarantee that it will remain faithful to the criterion of the tradition of the faith."

Pope: Everything in the Church rests on faith: the sacraments, liturgy, evangelization, charity 

There is nothing new about Catholic conservative intellectuals -- think John Neuhaus, William F. Buckley, Jr. What is new is the prominence that these Catholic thinkers and leaders have come to have within the domains of American politics that are dominated by evangelical Protestants. Catholic intellectuals have become to the American Right what Jewish intellectuals once were to the American Left. In the academy, on the Court, Catholic intellectuals provide the theoretical discourse that shapes conservative arguments across a whole range of issues. Often these arguments have identifiable Thomistic or Jesuitical sources, but most of the time they enter the mainstream of political dialogue as simply "conservative."

The Catholicization of the American Right

"This is not a political war at all. This is not a cultural war. This is a spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country—the United States of America. If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age. There is no one else to go after other than the United States, and that has been the case now for almost two hundred years, once America's preeminence was sown by our great Founding Fathers."  True!!  But Santorum's delusion blinds him to the fact that he is a part of the satanic plot:

Does Santorum Believe Obama Is Part of a Satanic Plot?

Santorum's reversal of Rev. 13, "Largely missing in the discussion of Santorum’s subscription to a supernatural cosmology is the fact that he views American history as essentially a struggle between “true Christians” like himself on the one hand, and Beelzebub on the other, in which the latter has already conquered academia and mainline Protestantism, and is by inference exercising his infernal control via the policies of that noted former academic and mainline Protestant, the President of the United States. Much of what Santorum has to say about current events is heavily colored by this “worldview,” most notably the belief that the president and his devilish supporters are laboring to wipe out “true” Christianity by forcing its staunch defenders, from the U.S. Conference of Bishops to innocent job-creators, to become complicit in such idolatrous practices as the slaughter of zygotes and the worship of the false idols of reproductive rights and the Environmental Earth-Goddess.":

Get Thee Behind Me! Catholic Doctrine and Reproductive Health - WHY THE CHURCH CAN’T CHANGE

Separation is not a principle that just protected the faithless as the letter of the Danbury Baptists demonstrates. It protects all of us whether religious or nonreligious. Indeed, government entanglement with faith tends to reduce moral precepts to political sound bites and bring religion down to the level of a pushpoll:

The Third Party Interest: Religion on the Campaign Trail; (Cf. God On The Campaign Trail)

“'The separation of church and state means that the government will not force one religious view or doctrine upon the people,' Lynn’s testimony observes. 'Expansion of the Obama compromise, however, would allow one particular religious doctrine to govern our public health policies at the expense of the health, safety, and religious conscience rights of the women they employ'":

Religious Liberty Does Not Grant A License To Deny The Rights Of Others, Americans United Tells Congressional Panel

". . . they’ve settled upon a partisan power play to subvert the First Amendment rights they claim. Look, nobody’s forced to use contraceptives; it’s an individual’s choice, nobody else’s. Religious organizations have the right to believe anything they like, but not to impose those beliefs upon others. By essentially demanding a Catholic veto, the bishops and their GOP allies would impose their theological views upon millions of American women as a condition of employment.

That’s not 'liberty,' it’s liberty’s opposite; and precisely what the First Amendment was written to prevent.":

Catholic hypocrisy at its worst  (Cf. The deep roots of the war on contraception; The Bishops Exposed: Wolves in Sheep's Clothing)

Under the direction of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and as predicted by A. T. Jones, under the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution, "the papacy [is being] pushed upon this country in every possible way and by every possible means and . . . congress is prohibited from ever legislating in any way to stop it." Indeed, congress is now enabling the papacy's push upon the United States in fulfillment of Rev. 13:14:

Outcome of 2012 presidential election could turn on the Roman Catholic hierarchy's opposition to contraception! Mark Shields on the PBS NewsHour stated that the contraception mandate is having a "cataclysmic" effect on the White House and Obama's re-election prospects. The Church of Rome is claiming "religious liberty" to impose its will on ALL women. Who could have predicted that battle lines would be drawn in 2012, NOT OVER ABORTION BUT CONTRACEPTIVE BIRTH CONTROL. Husbands and wives who believe in individual liberty and the right to privacy, are you aroused as yet to the reality of where we are in the march of prophetic events?:

He is also keenly aware of the desperate need within the Catholic Church for the faithful to be re-evangelized - and properly catechized - if they are going to bear fruit in this vital work of this New Missionary Age.

American nuns say questions not defiance ("After an investigation starting around 2008, the Vatican office concluded that the nuns’ group had failed to emphasize core teaching on abortion, while promoting “certain radical feminist themes’’ that undermine Catholic teaching on the all-male priesthood, marriage, and homosexuality.")  The nuns are currently campaigning for social justice.

What is this core teaching on abortion?  Ensoulment Occurs at Conception - the "immortality of the soul."

Ref. 2 Thess. 2:8-12: "The heavenly Teacher inquired: 'What stronger delusion can beguile the mind than the pretense that you are building on the right foundation and that God accepts your works, when in reality you are working out many things according to worldly policy and are sinning against Jehovah?  more . . .

Glenn Beck is not alone (see below.) Evangelicals trumpet their alliance with Rome, oblivious of their fulfillment of Bible prophecy as the "False Prophet": "These powers - the dragon, beast, and false prophet - are defined symbolically in chapters 12 and 13, and placed in a locality, 'heaven,' 'sea,' or 'earth.' In the 12th Chapter, 'heaven' is used either as the screen on which the drama is portrayed (vs. 1, 3) or heaven itself from which is heard 'a loud voice' (verse 10). Beginning with verse 12, the warfare is transferred to the earth and sea, a 'beast' rising up out of the sea (13:1);' and a second beast 'coming up out of the earth' (13:11). This second beast is designated as the false prophet. Compare Rev. 13:14 with 19:20." - From The Battle of the Great Day of God Almighty - It Is Pending! (WWN3(05):

A balanced solution that the Evangelical-Roman Catholic alliance and the Republican Party would never accept:

The Right Way to Accommodate Religious Objections to the Contraception Coverage Mandate (N.B.  "Religious organizations have a religious liberty right to challenge government regulations that require them to use their own resources in violation of their religious commitments in order to further the state’s secular objectives. Religious organizations do not, however, have a religious liberty right to use the government’s resources in order to further the organizations’ religious commitments when doing so would undermines the state’s public policy goals."  (Emphasis added.)  The tension within the First Amendment Establishment of Religion Clause is real, and requires a restraint that the Church of Rome will never concede.  (Cf. A. T. JONES ON THE PAPACY AND AMERICA.)
