You prayed for Armageddon -- you got it ... have fun

“Ask and ye shall receive.” Isn’t that the way it goes? Let us set aside reality – the fact that words and predictions in Revelation were satisfied by the schism of 1035. For Islam Mohammed’s Hashemite monarchy and the Crusades suffice. But still both want Armageddon.

In Yiddish it is said: “May the Messiah come, and may I not be here to see it.” Yiddish speakers are wise enough to know, when ruled by a divinely infallible all knowing King, democracy, courts, and civil laws cannot exist – and getting there is a bloody process.

In case you don’t get it, Hezbollah is launching it’s rockets into the territory of Mount of Megiddo, in Biblical Greek the locale is called Armageddon. It is the ancient Armageddon of the Revelation and the Apocalypse. Destabilizing Iraq was necessary to make it possible.

For 3500 years, Armageddon has been the region where control over the Semitic lands was determined. Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Arab and Turk have all had their turn. After September 19 & 21 1918, the British took control from the Turks, subsequently ceding it to Israel.

Armageddon, the place of dreams for those who would have carnage and destruction engulf the world. It is the land of martyrs without purpose or post-holocaust objective. This is a Middle East the Right-wing wanted, prayed for, and is helping create. It is a land of kings, where death, martyrdom, is the price of to gain freedom from kings.

Iran’s Shia majority seeks to win the ancient religious war between Shiite and Sunni, to cause Hezbollah to goad Israel into decimating Syria and Lebanon, to affirm the Apocalypse, to dominate the region and reconstitute the Persian Empire as a Shia Theocracy.

The Shia-Sunni conflict is little different from that started between Peter and Paul – or Eastern and Western – and continued between Roman and Calvinist. But now, America is decides: Do we stand aside to allow an ancient Civil War or expand Armageddon?

The Apocalypse is a religious dream of world dominance. Dream of a Savior, Isa, who will confront the anti-savior and justify use of “the bomb”. You’ll see no rapture, just death. You asked, You receive.

Rally round the flag boys; rally round the flag. Times of crisis are the time when evil sets aside civil liberties and usurps rights. In the name of democracy and freedom, we shall institute dictatorship and slavery. All you need do is ask – via the ballot box, or silent acceptance.

Saddam had WMD, Israel has “the bomb”, all’s right in heaven – we have Armageddon. Within a generation the oil to lubricate and power the machines of war is gone. Act on your faith – it’s now, or never.

When the oil is gone so is the fuel for your jeeps, trucks, tanks, ships and jets. Monarch, theocrat, world leader, when the oil is gone, how will they fund military economies and fight wars? When the oil is gone insurgent and terrorist armies have the advantage.

We can have nuclear waste from ships of war, or clean energy from sun and wind. Our choice is peace or death, unity or division. The “prophecy” isn’t magic, it is the logical conclusion; the alternative being to fight hand-to-hand until none are left. Or, more likely, we are scattered families – Noah’s tribe after a fiery nuclear destruction.

The Apocalypse is a limited time offer, it expires by 2029. Taste the Apocalypse, try it on for size. Tell Bush to remain in Iraq, to divert resources necessary to combat disease, pestilence, famine. You prayed. Do you really want Armageddon? Ask and ye shall receive.

Hello Bill and all,

Since you posted this on my birthday, I thought I'd return the favor. Good article by the way.

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...

At the core of the deceptions used to manipulate humanity is the concept of religion. Without it, Bush, the Neo-Cons, and their cohorts could never have gained and retained political power by manipulating an already deluded and susceptible constituency. Likewise, their thinly veiled partners in crime, Bin Laden and his ilk, could never have succeeded in their roles in this centuries-old Vatican-led grand deception.

We are all stuck in a web of interlocking deception formed by money, religion, and politics. The great evils that bedevil us all will never cease until humanity finally awakens, shakes off these strong delusions, and forges a new path to the future.

Understanding the Fatal Flaws in Judeo-Christian-Islamic Prophecy

As certain world leaders strive to instigate a fabricated "battle of Armageddon," it is vital to understand and spread the truth about these ancient texts to help bring about an end to such abominable evil.

You can never expect philosophies based on lies and great error to lead to peace and harmony. How many more millennia of terrible proof is necessary before humanity finally gets a clue that most have been utterly deceived by the very concept of religion.
