Written 2002, Revised 2014

We hear it all the time, “Isn’t it amazing that the scriptures are silent about America?” I once thought the same thing myself, but after prayerful re-examinations of scripture I must admit I don’t believe it is so anymore. Therefore, I submit the following for those open enough to reconsider whether or not America is mentioned in scriptures. As Mark Twain once said, “It is easier to fool someone than it is to convince them they have been fooled,” likewise it has been proven over and over again, that the greatest hindrance to people accepting the truth is a prejudice or presupposition to it before they fully hear a matter.

Proverbs 18:13 He who answers a matter before he hears it, It is folly and a shame to him.

Also, please do not jump to conclusions by assuming I am anti-America. I simply believe God is going to deal with the sins of America the same way He does with every nation. The information in this article is only a fraction of the information available, and even that tends to be overwhelming when people first consider this concept. Please understand I will endeavor to satisfy any questions presented.

Thank you.

 

“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.”

 Revelation 13-19:4 speak of an end time’s judgment of the LAST in a succession of empires which might very well be called “spiritual Babylons.” Though the chapter begins concentrating on a seven-headed beast, the primary focus is the last empire which is called “THE EIGHTH.”  In order to gain understanding of whom or what the 8th spiritual Babylon is, one must give heed to the clues given by the angel to John in chapter 17.

A critical clue concerning this succession of empires was given to John when he was told by the angel “the beast that was, and is not …yet is.” This clue reveals there would be an interruption in a succession of what could be called “spiritual Babylons” represented by this seven headed beast; a time when this beast “was not” going to be represented in history by a literal country. However after an unstated duration of time, the beast would again briefly exist as the seventh head (empire). Lastly, it would “rise up out of the sea” as that final beast (empire) which would fulfill these scriptures and is scripturally referred to as “THE EIGHTH.” Thus the whole imagery of a “seven headed beast” is designed to reveal that last, eighth, and final beast empire that “goeth into perdition,” or complete annihilation.

The “sea” out of which the beast rises up, and upon which the woman sits, we are told in 17:15 represents “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” This is one of the verses in this chapter that leads many to conclude that this beast and/or the woman upon the beast is the Roman Catholic Church, since Rome has established itself in every corner of the earth. Regardless, I am persuaded this symbolic beast with the woman is a multifaceted-representation and must be recognized as demonstrating a succession of specific political entities or nations, as well as their particular religious institutions.

I believe this clue given by the angel reveals that in order to open the door of understanding concerning who this 8th Beast and, or the woman are, it will require the critical key of knowledge concerning Israel’s history. Only then can a firm foundation for understanding be built from which we can discern the correlation of these empires to Israel. For scripture and history corroborates that Israel, like the beast, “was, and was not, and yet is.” That is not to suggest Israel is the beast and, or the woman, rather it is to substantiate the correlation between Israel and the eight headed beast. Nevertheless, we can see in scripture where Israel is “spiritually called Sodom and Egypt,” (Revelation 11:8).

The majority of the Jews rejected Jesus and His crucifixion, which was evident by their continuing in the Mosaic Law. For with Jesus having fulfilled the Law, it was now exhausted, having accomplished its purpose, which was to foretell through the prophetic action of its required animal sacrifices, the necessity of the sacrificial death of Christ. Therefore by rejecting Jesus’s death and atoning blood, the Jews chose to remain in the decaying institution of Judaism, which was waxing old and ready to vanish away (Hebrews 8:13). For this reason Israel is now “spiritually called Sodom,” to signify how any manner of religion they now practice can be nothing more than a perversion of the truth since they lack both the temple and priesthood, destroyed for their rejection of their promise Deliverer, Jesus the Christ. Likewise, Israel is “spiritually called Egypt” to signify that without Jesus’s atonement they remain under the bondage of sin and death.

Another key point to remember is that the subject of Revelation 13-16 is the rise and fall of the final Eighth Beast and the woman sitting upon it. When judgment begins to fall upon them both, they become synonymous in chapters 17-19. This is conceivably due to a legal arrangement and thus (though perhaps unwittingly) a spiritual covenant that joins them inseparably, comparable to the covenant of marriage whereby two are made one flesh in the eyes of God. Such is why the angel tells John, “I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits on many waters” and “I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her.” The angel’s clue to this “mystery” reveals how the woman and the beast consent to unite and thus merge together as one to war against God and His holy people in these last days.

The woman, represented in false religions all throughout history, will be greatly exemplified in the leaders of pseudo-Christianity and their followers who prostitute themselves with the Eighth Beast for political and economic reasons, willfully diluting the teachings of Christ in order to maintain their influence and power over the ignorant. One only needs to be honest and contemplate how churches and faith-based organizations in this country have willfully agreed to accept and submit to government oversight in exchange for their tax-exempt status. What the nearsighted wisdom of the carnally minded church leaders thought was going to remain benign has proven to be malignant and powerfully advantageous to Satan as he begins to exercise his authority about what can be “legally” taught from the pulpits and must be performed in church building, i.e., sanctioning homosexual marriages.

Consequently, the beast’s seven heads prophetically represent seven actual empires with their particular false religious system, each having a time of direct interaction with the nation Israel. Another clue the Angel gives John is “here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.” This is where many began to talk about the Seven Hills of Rome and began to identify all this to Catholicism; however the angel refers to “mountains” and not “hills” and continues by saying, “There are seven kings five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come.”

Biblically we can accurately verify six of these seven mountains with their seven kings as six different literal empires that have had a direct effect on the nation Israel; which at the time of John’s vision was still intact as a nation. Coming to this fact makes this a good time to recall the clues given by the angel that the beast “was, and is not, and yet is,” and concerning these kings the angel also clearly told John that at that time “five are fallen, and one is.”

It is elementary to determine who these six empires are. Clearly, the sixth one existing at the time was Rome. As prophesied through Daniel, Rome “had great iron teeth: it devours and breaks into pieces, and stamps the residue with the feet of it and was diverse from all the beast that were before it.” Thus Rome fulfilled Gods promise of judgment against Israel as was forewarned in Deuteronomy 28 for the Jews not cleaving unto Him and obeying His voice. Therefore, in 70 A.D. Israel ceased to exist as a nation. Just like the beast, Israel which “was,” soon became an “is not” as the Roman General Titus was obliged to execute Gods judgment upon them when he was unable to negotiate peace with the stiff neck and rebellious Jews.

By recognizing that the seven heads of the beast are intended to represent seven empires which have a direct correlation with the nation Israel, all we have to do to verify them is to simply start with the birth of Israel to see who these empires are.

We can start our review with Joseph who was betrayed by his brothers and sold as a slave, only to end up sitting on a throne in Egypt. While out of jealousy his brothers meant it for evil, God meant it for good. For through this brotherly betrayal came the fulfillment of Gods promise to Abraham; to make his descendants a mighty nation and give them for an inheritance the land of Canaan.

However, after 400 years the Egyptians grew fearful of the multiplication of the Jewish settlers in their land and therefore enslaved them. It was through all of this that God showed Israel and the Egyptians the greatness and the surety of His word, and to date God is still showing it to the entire world. Thus, Egypt is head number one of the beast, for out of it Israel as a nation was born.

Many years later, after the death of King Solomon, his son Rehoboam was confronted by Jeroboam who represented the ten northern tribes. Jeroboam had come to petition Rehoboam to lower the high taxes Solomon had placed upon them. Rehoboam first sought the tried and proven wisdom of “the old men that stood before his father… But he forsook the counsel of the old men which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him,” (1 Kings 12). The result of Rehoboam walking in their ungodly counsel was a division of the nation Israel.

Having revolted, the ten northern tribes made Jeroboam their King. However, Jeroboam soon became concern that, “If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of the people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah… Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, it is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”

Rehoboam’s sin of turning the people to idols brought God’s judgment upon them, by His rising up Assyria to take the ten northern tribes of Israel into captivity. Making matters worse, in captivity they continued rejecting God’s commandments and intermarried with the Assyrians. Losing the purity of their heritage as Jews they became the despised Samaritans. Thus the ten northern tribes were lost, not by misplacement, but rather by forfeit of their pure identity as Jews. Thus Assyria is the second head of the Beast.

Over two hundred years later we see Judah to the south falling into idolatry and committing whoredoms against God, so she too was carried away captive by Babylon for 70 years. Thus Babylon becomes the third head of the beast. In Daniel 8:20, 21, we see prophesied by the angel Gabriel the two empires to follow Babylon would be the Medes/Persia Empire and Greece; heads number four and five of the beast. So at the time of Apostle John’s vision in Revelations, the five that had fallen were Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medes/Persia, and Greece, the sixth head being Rome which destroyed Israel as a nation.

Since Israel’s destruction in 70 A.D. and prior to 1948, maps did not recognize any land as “Israel,” for Israel “which was, was not.” Yet faithful to His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, God preserved their descendants and regathered them back to the land of their inheritance. Thus, today the whole world beholds Israel “that was, and is not, yet is” today. Therefore, as it has been with Israel, so has it been with the seven-headed beast.

Now what worked to re-establish Israel as a nation (apart from God’s sovereignty) was a near global sympathy for the Jews after their persecution in World War II, whereupon at that time, the land was recognized as part of the British Empire.

History tells us that while Britain was willing to allot a portion of land for Jewish settlers, they did not want to relinquish control or possession of the land. After the Jews’ increasing frustration with England and Arabs, on December 1, 1947, the Arab Higher Committee proclaimed a three-day strike as Arab bands began attacking Jewish settlements. The Jews, initially being placed on the defensive as war broke out against them, quickly moved to the offensive and prevailed, taking control and occupancy of more land. At which point England conceded and gave the land to the Jews (under international pressure) so they could once again be a people, a nation.

Now this all may seem good and well on England’s part, except when a gift is given God requires that it must be given cheerfully and of one’s free will to be acceptable and thus blessed by Him. Otherwise, it is not a true gift of charity. Therefore, England, who did not cheerfully choose to bless the descendants of Abraham with a free will offering, ultimately forfeited the blessing of God. This can be seen in that though Britain and its allies were ultimately victorious in the war, the Empire rapidly began to decline.

India and Pakistan gained their independence in 1947, and in 1948 King George the VI abandoned the title Emperor of India. In 1949 Ireland formally declared itself a republic and left the Commonwealth. In 1950 India became a republic and King George adopts the new title of Head of the Commonwealth. Through all this, King George the VI was afflicted with health issue to which he succumbs and died in 1952. Thus, it is historical fact that George VI, King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth, lived only four short years after the rebirth of Israel only to be succeeded by his elder daughter, Elizabeth. England therefore, governing the land of Israel’s rebirth, is the seventh head of which prophecy predicted, “when he cometh, he must continue a short space,” (Rev. 17:10).

“And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition,” (Rev. 17:11).

Rising up out of the sea comes the Eight Beast, which we are told is “of” or from, the seven. Could this mean that the Eight Beast is a mixture “of” the seven heads or empires, a great melting pot of cultures? For in it are “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Or does “of the seven” refer to it being a direct descendant or offspring “of the seventh” empire? Either way, we find America alone as the Cinderella fitting this glass slipper, for she is both a land of immigrants as well as the offspring of England. Remember, Revelation 13-16 is about the rise and fall of the Eight Beast that goes into perdition, and in chapter 17 gives us clues to help us clarify who is the eighth by giving us a progression of empires.

So I ask, what was it that catapulted America to the place of global supremacy she had held for a long time? Was it not the same thing that set the stage for decline of the British Empire and the rebirth of Israel, World War II?

Now then, if this Eighth Beast could in in fact be America, it obligates us to reconsider a section of scripture that has constantly been applied to an individual. For in Revelation 13:3 where we see the eighth beast received a wound to one of its heads “as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” How then do we connect this to America if verses 1-3 have actually been speaking of an empire and not an individual as many interpret it?

Knowing some are being painfully forced to set aside their long held beliefs here, I seriously proposed the possibility this wound to the head from which the beast amazingly recovered was Japans attack on Pearl Harbor, a historical event which significance keeps resurfacing. It was the attack on Pearl Harbor that rallied the people of America into one mind to go to war, thus we entered WWII. Despite Japan’s fury, speed and might, Pearl Harbor somehow survived and came back to defend itself. Incredible.

But recall how the war ended, with the dropping of The Bomb on Hiroshima and the second bomb on Nagasaki. Such display of power was never before witnessed. It could fittingly be asserted that the posture of the whole world was, “Who is like unto the beast?” and “Who is able to make war with Him?”

How did these things come to pass? In his vision, John beheld “another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns of a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the power of the first beast.” This second beast which appearance is like a lamb (having two horns) and SEEMS to be for peace, “exercises ALL the authority of the first.” If the first beast “from the sea” is America, then this second beast from “the earth” would be none other than the office of the Presidency. Though seeming to be for peace, His mouth is really promoting the agenda of the dragon, “… and he does great wonders, so that he makes fire [i.e., The Bomb] come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,” (verses 11-13).

Having ascended to a position of global supremacy, American presidents began asserting their power, meddling in the affairs of other sovereign nations under the guise of peaceful intentions. Regimes fell and puppet leaders with American backing rose to power to assist an agenda that surpasses the greedy intent of mere men, for it is clear that “The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

Since President George H. W. Bush Sr. postured America against Israel by proposing “land for peace,” every president since has continued to assert the right for a Palestine State to exist and the necessity for Israel to forfeit its covenanted land. As lambs supposedly laboring in the name of peace, these American presidents and statesmen have relentlessly pressured Israel with the threat of losing American support if they fail to comply with imposed mandates against them under the banner of “peace talks.” Now read again the fate of the eighth beast from Rev. 13-18 and ask, who else fits this better than America?

The Woman on the Beast

At the revelation of the rise of the Eighth Beast in Rev. 13:1, initially we can see there is no mention of a woman sitting upon the beast at the time of its ascension to “his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Chapters 14 and 15a speak solely of the iniquities of the beast and in chapters 15b and 16 of the judgment that would befall it. This vision so overwhelmed the Apostle John that in chapter 17 the angel proceeds to clarify all he had seen, by further revealing how judgment would surely come upon both the beast and the apostate religious system which would be riding the beast into the end of history. Thus chapters 18 and 19 speak of the absolute destruction of the beast and woman while proclaiming the praise and glory given to God for all His righteous judgments.

When the Eighth Beast rises to its might (in Revelation 13), there seems to be a respectful separation between the beast (civil) and the woman (religious), because the woman is not mentioned . . . perhaps representing a separation between church and state. BUT, in order for the civil government to do what it is prophesied to do in the last days and initiate a new joint identification/economic system, it will need the support of the religious sector, or faith based organizations, to assure that such a new system is benign and ok with God, hence in chapter 17 the woman now rides the beast.

Foolishly, churches in the main stream religious system have subjected themselves to be fully regulated by the beasts system and civil authorities in exchange for their tax exempt status. Hence these dead religious churches will feel obliged to assure their congregants that the implementation of the new identification mark that the beast says is necessary for the restructured economic system is not the damnable “mark of the beast.” This will not be difficult for the whoring daughters of Babylon to do, for they have perpetuated so many false end time doctrines they have only “waxed worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” and now celebrate their embracement of clear damnable heresies and moral atrocities.

Our adversary has spewed out of his mouth a flood of false end time messages and lying doctrines that he might cause the true Church to be carried away with the flood of error that is rampant in todays churches which seek to serve men and mammon rather than God; sacrificing Gods truth for increased attendance lest they offend their contributors. Just as God has always had His civil and spiritual leaders, so likewise the devil imitates this structural order in his attempt to defeat Gods people; hence the beast AND the woman which rides it. They will selfishly merge, becoming “one” in heart and purpose, because of their greed for power and filthy mammon in these final days.

Remember, no one can serve both God and mammon.

The following is a compilation of interesting quotes and points in history deserving of your attention and consideration:

An excerpt from President Roosevelt’s speech after Pearl Harbor attack:

“Yesterday, December 7, 1941-a date which will live in infamy-the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan . . . As Commander in Chief of the army and navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. . . . With confidence in our armed forces-with the unbounding determination of our people-we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God. . .”

Considering President Roosevelt’s expressed confidence in “the American people in their righteous might” that they will surely “win through to absolute victory” due to “our armed forces-with the unbounding determination of our people,” I am compelled to ask, just what does the word of God say about one who boasts in the strength of their flesh? Some may wish to immediately object and demand the direction of my attention to President Roosevelt’s inclusion of “so help us God. . .”

But I will simply point out that nowhere did he express his confidence to be in Gods righteousness or might, as the foundation and strength whereby the American people through their unwavering faith in God would surely overcome their enemies. No, this short inclusion of “so help us God,” has actually been the last four words attached to many threats of revenge pronounced by proud and indignant people. Perhaps those who are more patriotic and loyal to their country than they are concerned about the kingdom of God, or personal godliness, to such President Roosevelt’s speech may well have sounded “religious,” by his employing such phrases as “righteous might” and “so help us God.” But in truth, an honest critique exposes the usage of these phrases for what it was, the white-washing declaration of a successful implementation of a strategic agenda that was being utilized to rally the citizenry of America, to not only support a foreign war effort, but created a willingness to send their fathers, husbands and sons into it as well.

So, again I am asking, just what does the word of God say about one who boasts in the strength of their flesh?

Jeremiah 17:5- 6 – “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited,”

Interestingly, it must be noted that President Franklin D. Roosevelt suddenly died nearly 3 ½ years after making this famous speech and therefore did “not see when good cometh” at the conclusion of the war. I say nearly, because if we use the Julian calendar, it was only 3 years, 4 months, and 4 days excluding the end date. However, scripture reveals God calculates time differently, using the both the solar and the lunar cycles. One solar cycle was an approximate biblical year which was adjusted periodically with an extra month approximately 7 times during 19 solar cycles. The biblical months varied between 29-30 days based upon the lunar cycle which fluctuates approximately every 29.5 days. Since it was a total of 1,221 days duration from President Roosevelt’s speech to his death we can simply divide that time and see it was a durations of 41.39 biblical months, or 42 months. Perhaps even more interesting is the timing of President Roosevelt’s death which actually occurred on the New Moon of April 12, 1945.

 Revelation 13:5 – “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.”

Admittedly, my studies have brought me to the conclusion that America is this eighth and final beast, partly because it is evident that America “the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” The tsunami of evil deception continues to rise with a flood of sorcery, paganism, Wicca, false cults, blatant corruption, wickedness, immorality, hate groups, etc., etc. . . .

Also, it must be acknowledged that there are many sincere believers which declare the Catholic Church is the beast and harlot system. However, she fails to meet the full criteria of the plurality of “seven kings, five of which have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come, and when he comes, he must continue a short time. For it is evident that the beast is always referenced in the masculine with its kings.  We simply must recognize both as separate entities, civil and religious, church and state, that join forces in an unholy union for a last ride into perdition.

Nevertheless, as I stated in the first post, the Catholic Church is undoubtedly part of the spirit of this whorish woman which rides the beast; but it is not the beast itself. Furthermore, the Catholic Church has been a hoarder of wealth, but not a distributor of it. For where, or when, could we apply to the Catholic Church how “the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies?” Or “Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!?”

How does one apply this to the Vatican? – “Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

“Sorceries” imply witchcraft, as the designed or engineered manipulation of men’s wills. “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD,” (1 Samuel 15:23). It is evident that America’s leaders have failed to embrace God’s word and have refused to be subject unto Him. Rather they have continually tried to exalt themselves higher and higher while constantly seeking to manipulate the minds and wills of the people to control them and further the agenda of the dragon.

There are many other things that have help to strongly persuade me that America is the Eighth Beast. There are specific details and events in our founding history that have been suppressed from public awareness but are still openly evident, too many to be exhaustedly disclosed here. However, there are the Masonic symbols on our currency, government buildings, as well as the curious layout and design of the District of Columbia which nearly mirrors the layout of the Vatican in Rome.

District of Columbia can accurately be rephrased the “Realm of the control of the Queen of Heaven,” for such was the goddess Columbia. Columbia has also been worshipped through out history and in various regions of the world under the names, Isis, Semiramis, Ishtar, Diana, Artemis, Ashtoreth, Astarte and Libertas.  It is not mere coincident that the Statute of Liberty has mimicking aspects to many of these pagan idols.

Plus there are specific details that have been made public under the Freedom of Information Act concerning memorandums, discussions, military exercises and other various events that have exposed covert efforts of the American government to manipulate situations so as to assure our involvement in WWII, and ultimately those events that led to the ending of WWII.

After World War 1, Americans had for the most part become isolationists, having virtually no interest for involvement in foreign wars. According to a pre-war Gallup poll, 88 percent of Americans were solidly opposed to any U.S. involvement in the rapidly expanding European war. It was this temperament of Americans that was successfully exploited by President Roosevelt while campaigning as he promised over and over again, “Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.” As a result he won the election.

However, as early as 1940 a code clerk at the U.S. embassy in London had discovered secret communications between President Roosevelt and P.M. Churchill revealing a strong determination of Roosevelts part to engage America in the war. Unfortunately for the clerk he was caught trying to smuggle some of the documents out of the embassy. Consequently, he was charged with obtaining documents that “might be directly or indirectly useful to an enemy” and in a secret British court was convicted and therefore confined to a British prison until the war ended. The clerks name was Tyler Gatewood Kent.

October 7, 1940, A memorandum from Lieutenant Commander Arthur H. McCollum, head of the Far East desk of the Office of Naval Intelligence, advocated eight actions that were predicted to lead Japan into attacking the United States. In it the Commander wrote, “If by these means Japan could be led to commit an overt act of war, so much the better.” Consequently, President Roosevelt over the following year enacted all eight of McCollum’s recommendations.

Later in January 1941, President Roosevelt’s close advisor, Harry Hopkins, met with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and informed him, “The President is determined that we [the United States and England] shall win the war together. Make no mistake about it. He has sent me here to tell you that at all costs and by all means he will carry you through, no matter what happens to him — there is nothing he will not do so far as he has human power.”

March 1941, President Roosevelt sold munitions and convoyed them to belligerents in Europe ‑‑ both acts of war and both violations of international law; the Lend‑Lease Act.

June 23, 1941, Advisor Harold Ickes wrote President Roosevelt a memo the day after Germany invaded the Soviet Union, “There might develop from the embargoing of oil to Japan such a situation as would make it not only possible but easy to get into this war in an effective way. And if we should thus indirectly be brought in, we would avoid the criticism that we had gone in as an ally of communistic Russia.”

July 25, 1941, President Roosevelt froze all Japanese assets in US cutting off their main supply of oil, forcing them into war with the U.S. While all intelligence information was withheld from Hawaii from this point forward.

August 14, 1941, At the Atlantic Conference, P.M. Churchill noted the “astonishing depth of Roosevelt’s intense desire for war.” Consequently Churchill cabled his cabinet “(President Roosevelt) obviously was very determined that they should come in.”

October 16, 1941, Secretary of War Henry Stimson wrote in his diary, “We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move — overt move.”

October 18, 1941, Diary entry by Secretary of Interior Harold Ickes: “For a long time I have believed that our best entrance into the war would be by way of Japan.”

November 25, 1941, Secretary of War Henry Stimson wrote in his diary that FDR said an attack was likely within days, and presented the question, “How we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without too much danger to ourselves. In spite of the risk involved, however, in letting the Japanese fire the first shot, we realized that in order to have the full support of the American people it was desirable to make sure that the Japanese be the ones to do this so that there should remain no doubt in anyone’s mind as to who were the aggressors.” Thus Stimson made another entry that day stating, “The question was how we should maneuver them [the Japanese] into the position of firing the first shot….”

November 26, 1941, An ultimatum was sent to Japan’s ambassadors demanding as prerequisites to resumed trade a complete withdrawal of all troops from China and Indochina, and in effect abrogate her Tripartite Treaty with Germany and Italy.

Therefore we can see why in 1944, British Minister of Production, Oliver Lyttleton stated, “Japan was provoked into attacking America at Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty of history to say that America was forced into the war.”

In his 1948 biography, “Roosevelt and Hopkins: An Intimate History,” Robert Sherwood wrote, “If the isolationists had known the full extent of the secret alliance between the United States and Britain, their demands for the President’s impeachment would have rumbled like thunder through the land.”

This is in no way an attempt to deny Japan’s ferociousness in its war efforts, for there can be no excusing their heinous actions against the people and government of China and Indochina. However, as Christians we must not allow ourselves to be so blindly patriotic that we willfully shut our eyes to the truth that the American government intentionally provoked Japan in order to get into the war.  Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor the Roosevelt administration froze Japan’s assets in America, restrict it from use of  the Panama Canal,  ceased vital exports to necessary to Japan’s war efforts and ultimately joined Britain in an all-out embargo.

So, again I repeat, “How did these things come to past?” True to the Apostle John’s vision, “another beast” came “up out of the earth; and he had two horns of a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the power of the first beast.” History proves that though this second beast had the appearance is like a lamb and claimed to be for peace, promising the American people, “I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars,” he was really promoting the agenda of the dragon. So much so that “…he does great wonders, so that he makes fire [i.e., The Bomb] come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”

I admit that initially for years I only casually researched this, but I was astounded when I ran across The Frank Report of June 11, 1945. It is a “Memorandum on Political and Social Problems of the Bomb by scientists at the Metallurgical Laboratory of the University of Chicago, Manhattan Project.” This report was written for delivery to President Truman, who inherited the “Project” after President Roosevelt died.

However, President Truman never received this letter before giving the order to drop the bomb on Hiroshima. That is because Secretary of War Mr. Stimson had intercepted it. He is documented as stating in regards to bombing decisions on Japan, “This is one time I’m going to be the final deciding authority. Nobody’s going to tell me what to do on this.” (http://www.nuclearfiles.org/menu/library/correspondence/groves-leslie/corr_diary_groves.htm)

“The President never received the letter and all the scientists’ initiatives were frustrated because of the opposition of Byrnes, Groves, Oppenheimer, and other policy makers and scientists in control of the nuclear program.” (See “A PETITION TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,” 3rd paragraph, @ http://www.dannen.com/decision/45-07-17.html).

The following is “Dwight Eisenhower’s expressed view on using the Atomic Bomb”

“In 1945 . . . , Secretary of War Stimson visited my headquarters in Germany, [and] informed me that our government was preparing to drop an atomic bomb on Japan. I was one of those who felt that there were a number of cogent reasons to question the wisdom of such an act . . . During his recitation of the relevant facts, I had been conscious of a feeling of depression and so I voiced to him my grave misgivings, first on the basis of my belief that Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and second because I thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a measure to save American lives. It was my belief that Japan was, at that very moment, seeking some way to surrender with a minimum loss of ‘face.’ The Secretary was deeply perturbed by my attitude, almost angrily refuting the reasons I gave for my quick conclusions.”

 

Here is perhaps the most startling excerpt from “The Franck Report” that was signed by the top scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project. Please listen carefully as it states “All of us, familiar with the present state of nucleonics, live with the vision before our eyes of sudden destruction visited on our own country, of a Pearl Harbor disaster repeated in thousand-fold magnification in every one of our major cities.” (See Franck Report @ http://www.nuclearfiles.org/menu/key-issues/ethics/issues/scientific/franck-report.htm )

A thorough reading of this report will show just how our President and other government leaders rejected the counsel of the wise, just like Rehoboam in the Bible had. After the scientists realized their letter had not been delivered they wrote a second petition to President Truman, from which the following excerpt comes . . .

“The war has to be brought speedily to a successful conclusion and attacks by atomic bombs may very well be an effective method of warfare. We feel, however, that such attacks on Japan could not be justified, at least not unless the terms which will be imposed after the war on Japan were made public in detail and Japan were given an opportunity to surrender.”

“If such public announcement gave assurance to the Japanese that they could look forward to a life devoted to peaceful pursuits in their homeland and if Japan still refused to surrender, our nation might then, in certain circumstances, find itself forced to resort to the use of atomic bombs. Such a step, however, ought not to be made at any time without seriously considering the moral responsibilities which are involved.”

“The development of atomic power will provide the nations with new means of destruction. The atomic bombs at our disposal represent only the first step in this direction, and there is almost no limit to the destructive power which will become available in the course of their future development. Thus a nation which sets the precedent of using these newly liberated forces of nature for purposes of destruction may have to bear the responsibility of opening the door to an era of devastation on an unimaginable scale.http://www.dannen.co…n/45-07-17.html )

To read these solemn warnings that were given to President Truman and to think he rejected their counsel is horrifying. Even General MacArthur, who was leading the war against Japan, petitioned strongly against the use of the bomb. He didn’t even know there was such a bomb until 48 hours before the first one was dropped. Upon being made aware he bitterly objected to its usage, stating the war was over; it was just a matter of negotiating the surrender, so as to allow the Japanese people to save face because they were a proud (honorable) people.

Still, or perhaps, regardless, President Truman was the one who ordered the “fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.” God told us, “If any man has an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: [or weapon of war,] must be killed with the sword, [or same weapon of war] . . .”

“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment [radiation], saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.”

Russia and China alone are not our greatest threat, but rather concern needs to be given to all the European and eastern nations. People might laugh, but I will simply remind them what the Bible says, “the ten horns . . . shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For 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.”

Some have foolishly argued there isn’t a national army over there big enough, (at least not at the time of the original writing of this in 2002.) However, initial formation of the new European Army was headed up by a German General. Didn’t Germany contribute greatly in the start of the two World Wars? And remember the scripture clearly state, “the ten horns which thou saw 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.  For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will…”

And what will be the lure of Satan dragging men to war again??? Money and power of course, or filthy mammon. We in America are rapidly falling headlong into an Electronic Identification and Electronic Cash / Credit-Debit system. As far back as 1998 an article in Time magazine predicted one could send their daughter E-Cash and she “can store the money any way she wants-on her laptop, on a debit card, even (in the not too distant future) on a chip implanted under her skin. And, perhaps best of all, you can program the money to be spent only in specific ways.”  (Time APRIL 27, 1998 VOL. 151 NO. 16 ) http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,988228-4,00.html

Also mentioned in this article in Time was how the “smart card” with an RFID for the E-cash system could ALSO keep your medical history. Wasn’t it ex-president Clinton and his wife Hillary who were trying to get all Americans issued such a card so they could all have medical insurance???? Is it really about OUR health and well-being? Or is it really about THEIR wealth and control???? And now we have Presidential Obama-Care which requires all to have an implantable RFID chip.

Back in 2002 when I first wrote this article I spoke about how the European Union is rapidly printing out their new “Euros” and ready to begin distribution that year. I commented on how the EU common currency would only prove to add to the conflict of global monetary standards. The Bible says, “The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own conceit” (Proverbs 18:11).

Now, with the current global economic crisis, I am persuaded America will eventually attempt to force upon the European Union (and perhaps parts of the rest of the world) a new E-cash credit/debit method of economics  . . .  which I presently suspect the European Union and other nations will deceptively consent to. For again, “the ten horns which thou saw 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.”

Their deceptive acceptance of Americas proposal (which will most likely be pushed forcefully upon the European Union and other countries with the same arrogance that led to the dropping of the bombs), will only be for the purposes of their buying time to carry out a plan to finally eliminate the competition.

 

(Note: I believe part of the justification will be for America and the EU to stay off China’s yuan replacing the dollar and euro)

Evidence that the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a crime against International Law

(Documents located at: http://www.dannen.com/decision/int-law.html#D)

Title: PROTECTION OF CIVILIAN POPULATIONS AGAINST BOMBING FROM THE AIR IN CASE OF WAR

UNANIMOUS resolution of the League of Nations Assembly,

Dated: September 30, 1938

To: The Assembly,

Considering that on numerous occasions public opinion has expressed through the most authoritative channels its horror of the bombing of civilian populations;

Considering that this practice, for which there is no military necessity and which, as experience shows, only causes needless suffering, is condemned under the recognised principles of international law;

Considering further that, though this principle ought to be respected by all States and does not require further reaffirmation, it urgently needs to be made the subject of regulations specially adapted to air warfare and taking account of the lessons of experience;

Considering that the solution of this problem, which is of concern to all States, whether Members of the League of Nations or not, calls for technical investigation and thorough consideration;

Considering that the Bureau of the Conference for the Reduction and Limitation of Armaments is to meet in the near future and that it is for the Bureau to consider practical means of undertaking the necessary work under conditions most likely to lead to as general an agreement as possible:

1. Recognizes the following principles as a necessary basis for any subsequent regulations:

a) The intentional bombing of civilian populations is illegal;
b) Objectives aimed at from the air must be legitimate military objectives and must be identifiable;
c) Any attack on legitimate military objectives must be carried out in such a way that civilian populations in the neighborhood are not bombed through negligence;

2. Also takes the opportunity to reaffirm that the use of chemical or bacterial methods in the conduct of war is contrary to international law, as recalled more particularly in the resolution of the General Commission of the Conference for the Reduction and Limitation of Armaments of July 23rd 1932, and the resolution of the Council of May 14th, 1938

Appeal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt on Aerial Bombardment of Civilian Populations, September 1, 1939 –

The President of the United States to the Governments of France, Germany, Italy, Poland and His Britannic Majesty, September 1, 1939

The ruthless bombing from the air of civilians in unfortified centers of population during the course of the hostilities which have raged in various quarters of the earth during the past few years, which has resulted in the maiming and in the death of thousands of defenseless men, women, and children, has sickened the hearts of every civilized man and woman, and has profoundly shocked the conscience of humanity.

If resort is had to this form of inhuman barbarism during the period of the tragic conflagration with which the world is now confronted, hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings who have no responsibility for, and who are not even remotely participating in, the hostilities which have now broken out, will lose their lives. I am therefore addressing this urgent appeal to every government which may be engaged in hostilities publicly to affirm its determination that its armed forces shall in no event, and under no circumstances, undertake the bombardment from the air of civilian populations or of unfortified cities, upon the understanding that these same rules of warfare will be scrupulously observed by all of their opponents. I request an immediate reply.  FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT (Documents located at: http://www.dannen.com/decision/int-law.html#E)

Truman’s Speech, August 9, 1945 :

In a radio speech to the nation on August 9, 1945, President Truman called Hiroshima “a military base.” It seems likely, considering his July 25 diary entry, that he was not aware that Hiroshima was a city. Otherwise, he was being untruthful about the nature of the target. Truman delivered his speech from the White House at 10 P.M. Washington time on August 9, 1945. By this time, the second atomic bomb had already destroyed the city of Nagasaki. Because of the great length of the speech, most of which dealt with Germany, only the relevant paragraph is quoted here.

“The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians. But that attack is only a warning of things to come. If Japan does not surrender, bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and, unfortunately, thousands of civilian lives will be lost. I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately, and save themselves from destruction.”

What does this all mean? It means the bombing of Japan was not only against the counsel of those who developed the bomb, it was also illegal according to international law and contrary to President Roosevelt’s own international petition.

Stewart L. Udall, US Congressman and Author of “Myths of August”

 “Some of my conclusions may invoke anger and even ridicule. For example, I offer my belief that the existence of the first atomic bombs may have prolonged — rather than shortened – World War II, by influencing Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson and President Harry S. Truman to ignore an opportunity to negotiate a surrender that would have ended the killing in the Pacific in May or June of 1945. And I have come to view the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings that August as an American tragedy that should be viewed as a moral atrocity.”

From: U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey’s 1946 Study:

 “Certainly prior to 31 December 1945, and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated.”

J. Samuel Walker, Chief Historian, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission:

 “Careful scholarly treatment of the records and manuscripts opened over the past few years has greatly enhanced our understanding of why Truman administration used atomic weapons against Japan. Experts continue to disagree on some issues, but critical questions have been answered. The consensus among scholars is the that the bomb was not needed to avoid an invasion of Japan… It is clear that alternatives to the bomb existed and that Truman and his advisers knew it.”

LAST QUOTE

Osama bin Laden, when asked by ABC reporter John Miller, “Mister bin Laden, you have issued a fatwah calling on Muslims to kill Americans where they can, when they can. Is that directed at all Americans, [or] just the American military, [or] just the Americans in Saudi Arabia?”

Osama bin Laden’s answer, “…The Americans started it and retaliation and punishment should be carried out following the principle of reciprocity, especially when women and children are involved. Through history, American has not been known to differentiate between the military and the civilians or between men and women or adults and children. Those who threw atomic bombs and used the weapons of mass destruction against Nagasaki and Hiroshima were the Americans. Can the bombs differentiate between military and women and infants and children? America has no religion that can deter her from exterminating whole peoples. …We believe that the worst thieves in the world today and the worst terrorists are the Americans. Nothing could stop you except perhaps retaliation in kind. [Therefore] We do not have to differentiate between military or civilian.”

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/binladen/who/interview.html

 

Shocking I know, and very uncomfortable to hear and consider these things. Doubtless many are so angry at seeing Osama bin Laden being quoted that they have nearly forgotten all the quotes of the American leaders who likewise were offended by America being the first to make use of The Bomb. Sin is sin whoever commits it, be they American, Arab, Christian, Jew or Muslim. However, in light of all this, please consider afresh what God has stated in regards to the use of weapons and His judgments-

“If any man have an ear, let him hear, He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword [or whatever weapon of war] must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man [or nation] soweth, that shall he [or it] also reap.”

Let us therefore give more earnest heed to Jesus’ admonition, “Watch therefore, praying in every season that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things which shall occur, and to stand before the Son of man,” (Luke 21:26).
