America’s Destiny – Beyond 2012

14 06 2011

There is a lot of hullabaloo about 2012 and the Mayan calendar most of which I dare say is just baseless speculation. Mayan calendar enthusiasts  have put together a whole spectrum of possibilities of what could take place but will most likely not take place. Given that the Mayan calendar does not end in 2012 but just continues on with a new cycle, the only thing that the Mayans believed was that it marked the end of an era. What that means and what events take place then, is not at all defined by the Mayan calendar.

It is a bit like the Y2K scare/scam, every self-appointed expert was predicting the end of the world, and those who should have known better (and probably did know better) were predicting catastrophic destruction of businesses that did not hire them at much expense to rewrite their software for them (which incidentally often was completely unnecessary). Nothing like a good scam to make money. Yet something did happen just 9 months later in 2001, on the day that the world changed for ever. Just as the world did not end at midnight Dec 31, 2000, and Y2K was used to justify all kinds of nonsense, the Mayan calendar is today being used to justify all kinds of nonsense and you can be sure the world will not end on Dec 21, 2012. However, 2012 will be the end of an era, and the beginning of a new of which 2001 was the wake up call, a birth pang announcing that a new post-secular era was in gestation, impatient to be born.

So let’s think about what it means when an era comes to an end. There are many historical examples to borrow from. We have the end of the Jewish era with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD, and closer to home the end of the Christian era in the mid 1800’s. It is not that there were no more Jews after 70AD,  nor Christians after the mid 1800’s but there was no more a Jewish state after 70AD and Christianity displaced Judaism in the Roman Empire. Similarly absolute Christian monarchies came to an end in the early 1800’s and secular-democracy arose as the dominant ideology and the secular state was born. So what can we expect post 2012? First of all we can expect a rejection of secularism as the dominant ideology and the rise of authoritarianism.  Not surprisingly fundamentalism is seeing a healthy revival on the part of government policies around the world. The global economy is also in the process or undergoing a radical pole shift; away from the first world to the second/third world and politically there is a global reversion away from the principles that arose out of the enlightenment (late 1700’s) towards the centralisation of power, the undermining of democracy, etc, etc, .

So then, are there  any specific prognostications that can be made about 2012, or at least about its aftermath? Some clues can be found in the events of the past (fall of the Roman Republic, the fall of the Roman Empire, etc) and in the writings of the ancient prophets that wrote about the rise of  the final apocalyptic empire and its fate. Those with their eyes and ears open can recognise that in spite of economic obstacles, greatest empire the world has ever seen is rapidly materialising before our very eyes; preparing to fulfil its prophetic destiny within the post-secular world of the final Apocalypse. If having more than 850 military bases in 135 of the 190 countries in the world does not constitute the greatest military empire in the history of  the world, nothing does. Yet it will have a short career because the same forces  behind the downfall of the soviet union are already at play preparing the downfall of the new Empire. (See The Keys of This Blood by M.Martin for further details).

Based on an extensive study of ancient apocalyptic literature in the context of the repeating themes of history I have put together a brief summary time line of future events of what, according to the ancient prophets, is about to unfold. (additional details follow the chart and on other pages on this blog) There is nothing vague here, so if events 1-3 take place you can be pretty sure the rest will follow. The order of some of the events is a little unclear from the prophecies, so I might not have all the sequence of future events exactly right (or the dates), but the overall picture is fairly solid.  (click on the chart below for a sharper image)

  1. Rise of first American Caesar
    • Economic conditions will continue deteriorate.
    •  The presidency will be seized by the first of three non-typical presidents.
    • He will go forth conquering and to conquer and will  have greater world dominion than any before him  – This is the period of the white horseman of the Apocalypse (Rev 6:2).
    • To gain political support, the separation between church and state will be overturned through the creation of a law enforcing religious dogma, specifically including regulating Sunday observance, perhaps as early as mid 2017. (see notes on Dan 11:17)
    • A civil uprising/war takes place.  The government will prevail and many will be taken, mainly from the coastal cities. The red horseman of the Apocalypse now rides.
    • For a time, the economy will partly improve.
    • He will have an untimely death in the safety of his own home in his bed
  2. The Second American Caesar
    • An associate of the deceased president will take his place.
    • The decline of the empire begins from this time – all downhill from here.
    • A power sharing scheme will be setup involving this new president that will eventually result in preparations for war between the two rulers [it is unclear if this applies to the 2nd or 3rd president, or both of these]
    • This president will formalize the union of church and state, through the collaboration of the largest Christian churches uniting on the points they have in common.
    • He will greatly raise taxes to cover national debt/expenditure
    • At this time, uniform economic and religious worship laws enacted throughout most if not all of the client states, allied nations and protectorates of the empire.
    • Religious dissenters will be persecuted and penalized  (including violators of Sunday rest/sacredness). Many will be falsely accused, fined and imprisoned.
    • All transportation will come to a standstill (perhaps due to fuel shortage) food deliveries will stop, there will be hunger and strife in the cities. Fires in the cities will rage unchecked since the fire engines will be inoperable. This is the black horseman of the Apocalypse.
    • About this time (but could be a little earlier or later) there will be war with Iran. (this will involve Saudi Arabia and Iraq.)
    • The second unelected president dies prematurely of unnatural causes after a short time.
  3. The Final American Caesar
    • The last of the three unelected presidents takes power (perhaps 2019-20?) his unpopular rule will last about a year.
    • The pale horseman now rides – deadly pandemics, (100,000’s die each day) increasing civil strife and famine decimate the population.
    • The state of Israel will be destroyed (timing unclear).
    • The mark of the beast will be enforced at this time. All who will not submit to the religious authority of the state under the influence of the leading churches will be placed under economic sanctions – they will not be able to buy or sell.  The mark of the beast is accepting the religious dictates of the state in contravention to the word of God.
    • Catastrophic natural disasters now take place – described by the seven trumpets – a huge meteor strikes a large city destroying large houses, a large volcanic eruption, a fierce hail storm, and a major earthquake etc.
    • Many religious dissenters will be martyred – the fifth seal of the Apocalypse (Rev 6:9-11)
    • The stars will fall, the sun darkened, the moon appear as blood and there will be a great earthquake – the sixth seal of the Apocalypse; the signs of the coming of the Son of Man are fulfilled (see Matt 24).
    • There will be a little time of worldwide peace – the war in the Middle East [with Iran] will be held back for a time.
    • A warning message against receiving the mark of the beast and calling people to “come out of Babylon” will be loudly proclaimed  (see the the sign of Jonah.)
    • A miracle working being will appear on earth claiming to be Christ, Buddha, Mahdi etc – but who is really antichrist. The temporal millennium, age of Aquarius etc will be proclaimed (2 Cor 11:14) [timing uncertain sometime around events of the falling of the stars through to the setting up of the 1o kings). He will encourage persecution against those that will not submit to the authority of the state – those that refuse to accept the mark of the beast.
    • The last of the three unelected presidents dies while in office.
    • The US capital will be relocated to make way for the dominion of “Babylon the great”
    • The empire collapses, breaking up into ten pieces (taken away that the man of sin may be revealed see 2 Thes 2:3-10).
  4. The New World Order of 10 kings
    • The nation will have two more presidents, both duly elected, that will rule over a destabilized and fractured people.
    • The international power vacuum following the fall of the empire is filled by a new world order of 10 kingdoms that is really the feudal (un)Holy Roman Empire reincarnated under the control of the universal church-state complex represented as Babylon riding the beast. (Rev 17)
    • Persecution is stepped up against religious dissenters (Dan 11:32-39)
    • The war in the middle east recommences [involving Iran].
    • The fate of mankind is sealed – those with the mark of the beast are destined to destruction, while those that have rejected it are protected from what follows – there are no more martyrs.
    • A period of great tribulation begins, a time of worldwide trouble and calamity. Famine, war, pestilence, natural disasters, anarchy, civil unrest.
    • Religious persecution intensified with a death penalty decreed against dissenters.
  5. Overthrow of the New World Order
    • Cataclysmic natural disasters now take place in various places around the world for a period of just over a year culminating in the destruction of Mystery Babylon – that great universal church-state system that will be ruling over the new world order nations of the earth. These come in the form of salt and fresh water deadly red tides, record-breaking heat waves, highly contagious, incurable painful skin infections, great hail storms etc.  (Rev 16; 4 Esdras 16:14; 15:5,10-11,27)
    • Finally super volcanic eruptions and huge earthquakes will destroy human civilization, the surface of the earth will burn up (2Pet 3:10) and all will be reduced to rubble. Islands will disappear, mountain chains will sink.
    • Christ comes visibly in the clouds with the sound of the trumpet to reward the few that have kept his Word at all costs and punish those who have received the mark of the beast.
