islamic sovereignty to end
Islamic Sovereignty to End
  • Since the Muslim World represents the 7th Empire, and not the 8th Empire for the End of Days, it will come to and end like the other Empires.
  • The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. (KJV Isaiah 17:1).
  • And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad (KJV Jeremiah 49:27).l
psalm 83 a prophetic psalm
Psalm 83/ A Prophetic Psalm
  • Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: 6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. 9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: 10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. 11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: 12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. 13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. 14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; 15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O YHWH. 17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is YHWH, art the most high over all the earth. (KJV Psalm 83:1 {A Song or Psalm of Asaph.})

Ancient Book of Psalms Unearthed in Irish Bog

DUBLIN, July 25 (2006) -- Irish archaeologists Tuesday heralded the discovery of an ancient book of psalms by a construction worker who spotted something while working in a bog.

The approximately 20-page book has been dated to 800-1000 A.D. Trinity College manuscripts expert Bernard Meehan said it was the first discovery of an Irish early medieval document in two centuries.

The book has about 20 pages and a thick leather cover. The man who found it covered it again with damp earth to keep it from drying out. (National Museum Of Ireland Via Associated Press)

"This is really a miracle find," said Pat Wallace, director of the National Museum of Ireland.

"There's two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all, it's unlikely that something this fragile could survive being buried in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before it was destroyed is incalculably more amazing."

He said an engineer was digging up bog land last week to create commercial potting soil in Ireland's midlands when, "just beyond the bucket of his bulldozer, he spotted something." Wallace would not specify where the book was found because a team of archaeologists is still exploring the site.

"The owner of the bog has had dealings with us in the past and is very much in favor of archaeological discovery and reporting it," Wallace said.

Crucially, he said, the bog owner covered up the book with damp soil. Had it been left exposed overnight, he said, "it could have dried out and just vanished, blown away."

The book was found opened to a page describing, in Latin script, Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel.

Wallace said several experts spent Tuesday analyzing only that page -- the number of letters on each line, lines on each page, size of page -- and the book's binding and cover, which he described as "leather vellum, very thick wallet in appearance."

It could take months of study, he said, just to identify the safest way to pry open the pages without damaging or destroying them.

Ireland has several other holy books from the early medieval period, including the ornately illustrated Book of Kells, which has been on display at Trinity College in Dublin since the 19th century.

    • And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. (KJV Daniel 2:38).
    • And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws. 34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: (KJV Daniel 4:32).

  • Babylon will be restored to rule 3 ½ years: 2032-2035.
  • Seven Times are Seven Years, and the Seven Years were 2569 days.
  • Giving one day for each year, 2569 years is from 539 B.C. to 2031 A.D.
  • After 2031 Babylon regains sovereignty over all nations.

The Seven Years were 570 B.C. to 563 B.C., a time after Nebudcadnezzar’s Egyptian Campaign when no events are recorded till his 43rd year of reign. His madness was from his 35th to his 42nd year. This sabbatic period of madness lasted 2569 days from 9/11/570 B.C. to 9/23/563 B.C., and corresponds to the exact number of years that Babylon "is not" in power (539/538 B.C. to 2030/2031 A.D.)

prophecy in perspective
Prophecy in Perspective
  • We must know historical prophecy to know what God has done, and to gain a prophetic sense of what he will do in the future.
  • Future scenarios, constructed by students of prophecy, will always contain some element of error.
  • However, it is my belief that knowledge of God's Law, Sabbath, sabbatical year, jubilee periods, feast days, and chronology of Israel will help to greatly reduce the speculative error in prophetic study that has dogged the Christian world with so many wild guesses.
  • We always hope that we will know the answer a little bit beforehand, but never give up hope that one day all God's promises will come true, even if you have to rethink what to expect if the situation does not unfold the way you think it will.
  • Why have I done this? Let's just say that I'm sick an tired of the prophetic nonsense all around, and that I have a theory that is actually biblical that deserves consideration.
  • Let's just say that I actually believe in the Torah and see no place with the freedom to keep it except in Israel.
