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)

Prophecy Fulfilled Three Times

5 09 2009

A well accepted maxim by erudites of all ages and cultures is that history repeats. If that is true, then it stands to reason that some prophecies, relating to the consequences of some chain of events would also have repeated fulfilments.

Many things are repeated three times in the Bible such as the coming of Elijah (Mal 4:5), the three times in the year that the Israelites were to appear before the Lord (Exo 23:17) Balaam blessed Israel three times and hit the ass three times. Samuel thought Eli had called him three times, the three signs that the Lord gave Gideon, Elijah stretched himself on the widow’s dead child three times and had water poured over the altar three times, Jesus prayed three times in Gethsemane and was found innocent by Pilate three times, Peter was asked three times if he loved Jesus and the vision of the sheet descending from heaven was thrice repeated. The message that “Babylon is fallen is fallen” is given three times (Isa 21:9; Rev 14:8; 18:2). The number three must also have some special meaning. We notice that something done two or three times is established, but we shall show that something is divinely established if it occurs three times:

Esdras Three Headed Eagle Prophecy

4 09 2009

For some strange reason I recently got to reading the vision of the three headed eagle in the “hidden book” of 2 Esdras and given the recent huge rise in earthquakes and the uprising of people world wide noticed the following:

Therefore when there shall be seen earthquakes and uproars of the people in the world: Then shalt thou well understand (4 Esdras 9:3-4)

Then shalt thou well understand what? Perhaps Esdras’ dream of the three headed eagle in chapter 11 that goes like this. A nation was to arise represented by an eagle with three heads and 12 normal wings (or feathers in some translations), plus 8  contrary wings  would rule over the earth. The three heads and wings (or feathers) each represent different rulers of this powerful nation. Each of the wings take turns in an orderly manner one after another to rule,  while the heads are sleeping.

3 headed eagle

The prophecy picks up the story after the nation has been in danger of collapse near the middle of its existence.  The rule of the second wing after that time was to be twice as long and greater than any other. After this no other would be allowed to rule as long – only half as long. When the 12 had taken their turns to rule,  smaller contrary wings began to rule. After the first one ruled, then the second but not for as long as the first contrary wing. After that the next two  were planning to rule jointly when the first big head awoke and ripped these two wings off with its beak. This head ruled over the entire world. When he had passed away the other two heads awoke and took turns in ruling. By this stage the eagle is rebuked by a lion and his kingdom is devastated. Finally the last two contrary feathered wings then rule over what is left until the eagle is completely burned up. There are two more contrary wings mentioned, that rule somewhere in the middle of all of this (before the 3 heads) but is not quite clear where in the sequence.

What does it mean? Esdras tells us that this three headed eagle is the fourth kingdom of Daniel which most scholars believe refers to Rome and many have tried to match the wings and heads with the various roman emperors but it does not quite fit. The eagle is the emblem of the USA as it was that of the Roman Empire. So if we realise that the American Empire is the prophetic counterpart to the Roman Empire [see this page on Daniel’s  vision] we start to see how it all fits. There are many parallels between the three heads of this eagle and the three rulers of Daniel’s fourth kingdom described in Dan 11:16-30 (Click here to see its ancient and modern-day fulfillment).

The wings take turns in an orderly manner to rule, which the emperors by the most part never did, but the presidents do, serving one or two four year terms. There has only ever been one president that has ruled longer than all the others being F.D.Roosevelt who served 4 terms from 1933-1945 (passed away at the start of his fourth term). The USA had begun to emerged as a world economic power after WW1 and by 1929 dominated the world economy. Hence Roosevelt was the 2nd wing of this world dominating empire, its dominance would first be economic and then military. After this leader the law would be changed limiting presidents to 2 terms. Counting the remaining 10 wings/presidents we find that Clinton was the last one before the first two contrary wings. We expect there to be significant changes in the style and manner of government in the presidencies of the contrary wings and this is confirmed by history. Then there were to be 2 more presidents after Clinton, being Bush and Soetero. Then the first head awakes. Originally I assumed that this implied that “the current president is to be succeeded by someone that is unelected. That means that either the 2016 election is cancelled or postponed or the President elect is taken out or there is a coup”. However Esdras does not actually dictate that the first head be unelected. It just could be a non politician out of left field that happens to be elected  (Others believe that the prophecy points to 4 presidents after Clinton.) Under this leader the US empire will dominate the world like never before. Two others will succeed him/her. The nation will then be devastated by natural disasters. Finally two more elected presidents will preside over the final days of the US.

Dec 2016: I have written an update post – click here.

You can read the text of the prophecy for yourself here or here.

Update… Here is a little more of the three headed eagle prophecy,  going with the theme that the first head is unelected..
