ANALYSIS: Will Anglicans Come Home to Rome?




And 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.  Dan. 11:45

O 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 . . Dan. 9:16

Report on the Eleventh Chapter of Daniel
(Exegesis which clearly establishes that the "King" of Dan. 11:36-39,
and consequently of verses 40-45, is the Papacy)

Isaiah 2:2-3 - And 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. And 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.  (The prophecy is in the entire chapter; and it is eschatological.)

The Ultimate Deception?  Prophecies are in the Bible - some widely misinterpreted, especially by the Evangelicals, some ignored, and some not even recognized as prophecies:

Isaiah 2:2-3 - Above

Isaiah 14:12-14 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For 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 north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Rev. 17:7-14 - And 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. The 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. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And 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. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And 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. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

These 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.

Rev. 16:13-16 - And 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. 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. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Messianism is the belief in a messiah, a savior or redeemer. Many religions have a messiah concept, including the Jewish Messiah, the Christian Christ, the Muslim Mahdi, the Buddhist Maitreya, the Hindu Kalki and the Zoroastrian Saoshyant. The state of the world is seen as hopelessly flawed beyond normal human powers of correction and divine intervention through a specially selected and supported human is seen as necessary.

From the speech of Ahmajinedad at the United Nations:

"Fortuitously, opportunities are accessible. With the grace of God Almighty, the existing pillars of the oppressive system are crumbling. Great developments in favor of humankind as well as its true and real rights are on the way. A golden and brilliant future is awaiting mankind.
A global community filled with justice, friendship, brotherhood and welfare is at hand, as I have elaborated.

A community which will tread the path of beauty and love under the rule of the righteous and perfect human being, the One promised by all divine prophets and the One who is the true lover of humanity. A community that will be devoid of any fear, despair and privation. Such a community will soon be ours. The community promised by the great divine Prophets Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus Christ and Mohammad (PBUH) is about to materialize.

Let us, hand in hand, expand the thought of resistance against evil and the minority of those who are ill-wishers. Let's support goodness and the majority of people who are good and the embodiment of absolute good that is the Imam of Time, The Promised One who will come accompanied by Jesus Christ, and accordingly design and implement the just and humanistic mechanisms for regulating the constructive relationships between nations and governments."  (Emphasis added)

Coalition of fear: Tea Party, the religious right and Islamophobia
(In his exegesis of Dan. 11 Wm. H. Grotheer pointed out that this is literal and not symbolic prophecy.  Thus the Kings of the North and South correspond to the territories of the divided empire of Alexander the Great.  He further points out that all of these territories, with the exception of Israel, are now Moslem countries.  One wonders whether Dan. 11:40 has been or is being fulfilled under our very eyes in the terrorist attacks of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.  Also, do the "tidings out of the east . . ." involve Iran?  recognizing the Church of Rome as the willful King of verses 36-39, it must be noted that the Church of Rome has never conquered by the force of its own arms.  This raises the question: which nation of the world is now exercising the might of its arms on behalf of Rome?)

Excerpt -
The Israeli-Palestinian situation. Three days after Pope Benedict left Israel with a strong call for a two-state solution based on mutual security, Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with virtually the same message. The Vatican newspaper said the president's position was in "full harmony" with that of the pope, reflecting the Vatican's strong hope that Obama will get serious about pressing Israel on a settlement.
