Urgent Prophetic Breakdown: Weimar Republic, United States, and Third Reich Part 1 & 2 - Exploring the Impact of Political, Economic, and Social Challenges on Republic

Urgent Prophetic Breakdown--Weimar Republic, the United States, and the Third Reich Part 1 & 2

Washington's Farewell Address: The unity of government which constitutes you as one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so; for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad, of your safety, of your prosperity, of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of [6] WASHINGTON’S FAREWELL ADDRESS the palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned, and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts. For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together. The independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint councils and joint efforts—of common dangers, sufferings, and successes. But these considerations, however powerfully they address themselves to your sensibility, are greatly outweighed by those which apply more immediately to your interest. Here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving the Union of the whole. The North, in an unrestrained intercourse with the South, protected by the equal laws of a common [7] WASHINGTON’S FAREWELL ADDRESS government, finds in the productions of the latter great additional resources of maritime and commercial enterprise and precious materials of manufacturing industry. The South in the same intercourse, benefitting by the agency of the North, sees its agriculture grow and its commerce expand. Turning partly into its own channels the seamen of the North, it finds its particular navigation invigorated; and while it contributes, in different ways, to nourish and increase the general mass of the national navigation, it looks forward to the protection of a maritime strength, to which itself is unequally adapted. The East, in a like intercourse with the West, already finds, and in the progressive improvement of interior communications by land and water will more and more find a valuable vent for the commodities which it brings from abroad, or manufactures at home. The West derives from the East supplies requisite to its growth and comfort—and what is perhaps of still greater consequence, it must of necessity owe the secure enjoyment of indispensable outlets for its own productions to the weight, influence, and the future maritime strength of the Atlantic side of the Union, directed by an indissoluble community of interest as one nation. Any other tenure by which the West can hold this essential advantage, whether derived from its own separate strength, or from an apostate and unnatural connection with any foreign power, must be intrinsically precarious.

In his powerful valedictory address, Washington called for national unity and focused on threats at home and abroad.  At home, Washington feared the rise of political factions.  Abroad, he warned of the dangers of foreign entanglements.  For Washington, both foreign influence and newly emerging political parties threatened liberty and undermined the promise of a republican government.  For the American Republic to survive, the American people and their elected leaders had to commit to lives of civic republican virtue—valuing reason over passion and the public good over private self-interest.

Creating a New Constitution The Weimar Republic Germany With the violence quelled, 25 men including the famous sociologist Max Weber, legal scholar Hugo Preuss, politician Friedrich Naumann, and historian Friedrich Meinecke worked from February to July 1919 crafting a new constitution which became law on August 11. The drafters of this new constitution faced the difficult task of creating a government acceptable to both the political left and right without being too radical. They compromised to satisfy both groups. The basic format of the government was based around a president, a chancellor, and a parliament or Reichstag. The President was elected by a popular vote to a seven-year term and held real political power, controlling the military and having the ability to call for new Reichstag elections. In a nod to conservatives afraid of too much democracy, the framers also added elements such as Article 48 which allowed the President to assume emergency powers, suspend civil rights, and operate without the consent of the Reichstag for a limited period of time. The chancellor was responsible for appointing a cabinet and running the day-to-day operations of the government. Ideally, the chancellor was to come from the majority party in the Reichstag or if no majority existed, from a coalition. The Reichstag, in turn, was also elected by a popular vote with its seats distributed proportionally. This meant when the Social Democratic Party (SPD) won 21.7% of the popular vote in 1920, it was allocated (roughly) 21.7% of the 459 seats available (102). This system ensured that Germans had a voice in government that they had never had before but it also allowed for a massive proliferation of parties that could make it difficult to gain a majority or form a governing coalition. For example, the Bavarian Peasants' League, a party representing purely agricultural interests in Bavaria won 0.8% of the vote and gained 4 seats. Proportional representation later allowed more extremist parties such as the Nazi Party to gain influence.

Immediate Challenges. However, the Weimar Republic faced more immediate problems in early 1920 when a group of right-wing paramilitaries seized power in what became known as the Kapp Putsch. When Ebert sought the promised help of the army in maintaining control, he was told that “the Army does not fire on other Army units.” The military, therefore, made it clear that they were happy to fight the left but would not take arms against the right-wing Freikorps. A highly effective general strike by the left saved Chancellor Ebert's government. In this strike, the national bank refused to pay out currency, civil servants refused to follow orders, and workers refused to work. Political violence peaked in 1923 with Hitler's attempted coup, the Beer Hall Putsch, which was put down by the military.

Economic Burdens
Nevertheless, the leaders of the Weimar Republic still faced daunting challenges, mainly of the economic variety, particularly the burden placed upon them by the outgoing leadership of the Kaiser and the generals. This took several forms. The first was the immense cost of the war itself and the damage it had done to Germany’s civilian economy. The second was the Versailles Treaty. The Allies charged the Germans with paying staggering reparations for the cost of the war while simultaneously occupying some of the most productive regions of western Germany. For example, Germany lost 13% of its territory including areas accounting for 16% of coal and 48% of iron ore production.

The high reparations payments and costs of war had devastating consequences. The cost of living in Germany rose twelve times between 1914 and 1922 (compared to three in the United States). When the government sought to pay reparations simply by printing more money, the value of German currency rapidly declined, leading to hyperinflation. In January 1920, the exchange rate was 64.8 Marks to one Dollar; in November 1923, it was 4,200,000,000,000 to one. This economic disaster had social consequences as well. Many Germans who considered themselves middle class found themselves destitute. Not everything about the Weimar period was impoverishment and political turmoil. Germany experienced its own “Roaring Twenties” until they were cut short by the Great Depression. Cities burgeoned with new arrivals from the countryside in search of jobs, setting the stage for a vibrant urban life. Urban centers like Berlin became some of the most socially liberal places in Europe, much to the chagrin of conservative elites. Berlin had a thriving nightlife full of bars and cabarets. There were between 65 and 80 gay bars and 50 lesbian bars in the capital alone. Sexual liberation was a very real phenomenon, complete with a gay and lesbian rights movement led by Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld who ran an Institute for Sexual Science.

Beginning in the nineteenth century, Germany was closely associated with homosexuality. The English spoke of the “German custom,” the French referred to the vice allemande, and Italians called gay men and women “Berlinese.” Queer people existed across Europe, of course, but German thinkers actively studied non-heteronormative sexualities and openly debated the rights of queer people, inaugurating the field of sexology. In the first decade of the twentieth century, more than a thousand works on homosexuality were published in German. Researchers from England to Japan cited German sexologists as experts and often published their own works in Germany before their home countries. The Weimar Republic, the zenith of modernism, witnessed new social liberalization and experimentation. Fritz Lang premiered his Expressionist film Metropolis in 1927, Alfred Döblin published his dizzyingly innovative novel Berlin Alexanderplatz in 1929, and the following year Hannah Höch unveiled her Dadaist photomontage, Marlene. And alongside reinventing traditional forms of artistic expression, Germans began interrogating gender roles and sexual identities. As the historian Clayton Whisnant observes, “Perhaps more than anywhere else, Weimar Germany became associated with experimentation in sexuality.” Berlin was the undisputed queer capital of Europe. By 1900, over fifty thousand gay men and lesbians lived there, and countless more visited, looking for friendship, love, and sex. By 1923, some hundred gay bars in Berlin catered to diverse groups: men and women, the old and the young, the affluent, and the working class. Nightclubs like the Mikado, the Zauberflöte, and the Dorian Gray became international hot spots, and the city’s elaborate queer balls attracted worldwide attention. Associations offered opportunities for socializing and political organization. Crucially, relaxed rules of censorship allowed for the publication of dozens of pulpy gay novels, queer periodicals, and even personal ads. The British writer Christopher Isherwood, whose account of his thirties stay in Germany inspired the musical Cabaret, put it simply: “Berlin meant boys.” In 1928, the poet W. H. Auden similarly described the German capital as “the bugger’s daydream.” In her famous guide to Ruth Margarete Roellig concluded, “Here each one can find their own happiness, for they make a point of satisfying every taste.” The images in the magazine, interspersed throughout each issue, were often unrelated to the articles. They were a mix of professional photographs and reader-supplied candid shots, displaying the vibrant range of gender variant existence. Some portray people dressed up in formal wear, such as gowns and tuxedos. Others showcase individuals in elaborate costumes, like Cleopatra. Most images depict people in everyday clothes: simple dresses with white aprons, cotton shirts, and cravats, Lederhosen. One common theme, however, unites the pictures: almost all the individuals appear against blank, gray backgrounds. An undeniable sadness permeates the images. Berlin’s queer scene may have been bustling at night. But when the Zauberflöte turned off its flashing lights and turned down its raucous music, many of its visitors returned home and hid themselves until evening fell once more. Significant increases in women’s rights were another achievement of the period. The Weimar Constitution extended the right to vote to all men and women over the age of 20 in 1919 (the United States did not adopt this standard until 1920, and Britain in 1928). German Jews as well experienced a period of increased social and economic freedom. Culturally, the period produced important and lasting results. As historian Peter Gay wrote, “The Republic created little; it liberated what was already there.” Let's talk about the influence of Ishtar in the Weimar Republic: Ishtar, worship of Ishtar involved men dressing up as women was Ishtar, the goddess of love, sex, and war. The husband of goddess Ishtar was Dumuzi, also known as Tammuz, who was worshiped as the god of shepherds. Corresponding to Ishtar’s own ability to transcend categories, the goddess of love enabled her followers to defy or even redefine social boundaries, particularly those related to gender roles. Men who became priests of Ishtar, known as gala, would sometimes assume non-binary gender roles, dress in women’s clothing, and were allowed to engage in homosexuality. Priests of Ishtar were known as gala, what is the MET event called every year? The Met GALA. what do some of the men do? Dress up like woman!

However, the global economic downturn created by the Great Depression in America had devastating repercussions for the Weimar Republic. As the panic hit Wall Street, the US government pressed its former allies, Britain and France, to repay their war debts. Not having the money, Britain and France pressed Germany for more reparations payments, causing an economic depression. The German government faced the classic dilemma: cut government spending in an attempt to balance the budget or increase it in an attempt to jumpstart the economy. Heinrich Brüning, who became Chancellor in 1930, chose the deeply unpopular option of an austerity program that cut spending and those programs designed precisely to help those most in need. Economic hardship combined with a general distrust of the Weimar system destabilized parliamentary politics. Majorities and even coalitions in the Reichstag were difficult to form among an increasingly large number of extremist parties, left and right. Elections were held more and more frequently.

One of the last things to go on in the Weimar Republic that spiritually weakened it and allowed the path for Hitler was this blatant push for the LGBTQ agenda on transgenderism… it weakened the family unit, the country's morals, and opened the door spiritually for the entire nation to become full-on oppressed The police tolerated gay bars, which was one reason that Berlin became a global center for gay prostitution. Berlin was also home to a burgeoning gay civil rights movement led by a German-Jewish physician and sexologist, Magnus Hirschfeld.

At the temple of Ishtar, you had temple prostitutes doing illicit acts to promote a flourishing agenda, and you had men dressing up as women for ceremonies Prostitution, which also flourished in the philistines towns, who worshipped Dagon, half man half fish, seducing spirit, and Sampson himself is documented.

Judges 16:1-3
1 Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went into her. 2 When it was told to the Gazites, saying, “Samson has come here,” they surrounded the place and lay in wait for him all night at the gate of the city. And they kept silent all night, saying, “Let us wait until the morning light, then we will kill him.”  3  Now Samson lay until midnight, and at midnight he arose and took hold of the doors of the city gate and the two posts and pulled them up along with the bars; then he put them on his shoulders and carried them up to the top of the mountain which is opposite Hebron. In places where there is much freedom with little moral boundaries, and much idolatry with an emphasis on religion, not on a relationship with the Lord, prostitution and perversion flourishes because it is utilized in the realm of the spirit to create soul ties and put people in bondage to highly destructive seducing spirits.

Ephesians 4:17-19
17  So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind,  18  being darkened in their understanding,  [a] excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;  19  and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality  [b] for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.

It was a German Jew who was at the epicenter of this entire movement in Germany of this LGBTQ trans agenda, once again prominent Jews had forsaken the law of God and gone in the ways of Baal and Ishtar, which assisted to open the gate for one to arise and oppress and persecute them in horrific ways. 

We have seen a rise of this in the nation that is being rushed at a feverish pace Target, has now joined ranks with a satanist brand of clothing to create a PRIDE collection for children Target has contracted with Abprallen — a clothing brand that sells Satanist merchandise, some of which glorifies violence — to create products for its “PRIDE” collection.

At one point Target sold three Abprallen items: a messenger bag saying “We Belong  Everywhere” across trans-flag colors and planets, a tote bag with the message “Too Queer for Here” beneath a UFO, and a “Cure Transphobia, Not Trans People” sweatshirt. Only the sweatshirt remains for sale. It’s unclear why the other two items no longer appear on the Target website. Using a variation of the Caduceus, even though this is 1 snake, the wings are present. The Caduceus is a symbol of Hermes or Mercury in Greek and Roman mythology. Caduceus symbol is identified with thieves, merchants, and messengers, and Mercury is said to be a patron of thieves and outlaws, not a desirable protector of physicians. 

John 10:10 10  
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life, and  [a] have it abundantly. We belong everywhere, well isn’t that just what the demonic wants, to have their agendas influencing high places, and identified everywhere Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. Within the month of March 2, things happened:

March 1st
A transgender video game developer recently launched a game where players can hunt down critics of transgenderism, like anti-trans feminists and Catholic priests, and kill them in a bloody, first-person shooter action. Called & quot; Terfenstein 3D & quot; the game is based on the classic Nazi-fighting game & Quot; Wolfenstein 3D, & quot; one of the earliest first-person shooters. quot; Wolfenstein & quot; involved the main character navigating Nazi bases and taking out the villainous occupants with a wide array of deadly weapons.

The fact that & quot; Terfenstein 3D& quot; is based on a Nazi shoot ‘em up is no accident.
Developer Sandra Moen, a trans person, intended to equate her games’ villains to Wolfenstein’s Nazis and allow the player the experience of eviscerating them on screen. 

The school shooting in Nashville at the end of March, the school's name was Covenant, and it was one in the trans movement that committed such horror. When the demonic is welcomed into a nation in high places and the believer's authority, the authority of the third heaven is not utilized, they will advance, they will steal kill and destroy--Like I said, WEIMAR REPUBLIC.

This was Egypt 2.0, this was the revenge of that Spirit that caused Pharoah to develop a disdain for the people of God.

Exodus 1:8-11 (NASB 1995)

Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. He said to his people, “Behold, the people of the sons of Israel are more and mightier than we. Come, let us deal wisely with them, or else they will multiply and in the event of war, they will also join themselves to those who hate us, and fight against us and depart from the land.” So they appointed taskmasters over them to afflict them with hard labor. And they built for Pharaoh storage cities, Pithom and Raamses. Jews as the scapegoats for the lost war. The German defeat was hard to swallow for many Germans, and for Hitler, too. In nationalist and right-wing conservative circles, the ‘stab-in-the-back legend’ became popular. According to this myth, Germany did not lose the war on the battlefield, but through betrayal at the home front. The Jews, Social Democrats, and Communists were held responsible.

The Scapegoats in the Bible:
Aaron then completed the ministrations of his atonement work (a very bloody, messy process), after which he laid both his hands on the “head of the live goat and confess over it all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins.” And he “put them on the head of the goat” and sent “it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who is in readiness” (Leviticus 16:21). The man then let the “goat go free in the wilderness” (Leviticus 16:22). Once the scapegoat was sent to the wilderness, the sins of the people “escaped” through the atoning work done by use of him. The man who led the scapegoat to Azazel had to wash his clothes and bathe before he could come back into the camp (Leviticus 16:26).

Hitler’s Rise to Power:
A combination of political and economic dissatisfaction, some of it dating back to the founding of the Republic, helped create the conditions for Hitler’s rise to power. By drawing together the fringe nationalist parties into his Nazi Party, Hitler was able to gain a sufficient number of seats in the Reichstag to make him a political player. Eventually, conservatives, hoping to control him and capitalize on his popularity brought him into the government. However, Hitler used the weaknesses written into the Weimar Constitution (like Article 48) to subvert it and assume dictatorial power.

Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution allowed the German president to declare a state of emergency in Germany in times of national danger and to rule as a dictator for short periods of time 4+8=12 12 biblically, there were 12 tribes of Israel and 12 is associated with government and rule. The Weimar Republic ended with Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor in 1933.

Blaming Germany’s troubles on Jews, traitors, communists, and the failures of Weimar democracy, Hitler ran against Hindenburg in the April 1932 presidential election. Hindenburg won, but Hitler got 37 percent of the vote. In July, \2voted for the Nazis in new parliamentary elections, making Hitler’s party the largest in the Reichstag with 37 percent of the seats. The number 14 double 7s every 7th year is a Shemitah year 7 Shemitah equals a jubilee year. Continuing political turmoil resulted in yet another Reichstag election barely four months later. The Nazis lost some seats in the Reichstag, but the Communist Party gained seats, which drove a wide range of parties to back Hitler.

Finally, on January 30, 1933, President Hindenburg reluctantly agreed to choose Hitler as the new chancellor. Hitler promised to observe the Weimar Constitution (now this is a hallmark of those under the influence of the spirit of the antichrist, they PROMISE to uphold the LAW and once they have power, they try and destroy it and replace it with a highly oppressive destructive Dictatorship) and form a broad coalition government to solve the economic crisis. The politicians advising Hindenburg told him they could control the upstart from Bavaria. One political leader said, “In two months we’ll have pushed Hitler into a corner so hard he’ll be squeaking.” Hitler, however, quickly outflanked the other politicians. He persuaded Hindenburg to call another election while ruling by decree. One edict restricted political party activities and the press. During the election campaign, part of the Reichstag building mysteriously burned down. Hitler blamed the communists. He issued a new “temporary” decree, suspending constitutional rights to crush the communists. Create a catastrophe and blame the party you want to destroy....

January 6th was the Reichstag fire…..

In March 1933, with close to 6 million Germans unemployed, the Nazi Party won 44 percent of the Reichstag seats. With the support of smaller right-wing parties, Hitler commanded a majority to form a new government. Hitler submitted an “Enabling Act,” calling for the Reichstag to transfer its lawmaking powers to him. The law also allowed Hitler to ignore any provision of the Weimar Constitution. So he put forth an act in an effort to suspend rights granted in the Weimar Constitution…The very constitution he promised to uphold, the breaking of the agreement to uphold law and order, is another hallmark of the spirit of the antichrist. This happening foreshadowed the same tactic that the man of sin, the antichrist, and Daniel and revelation will use that is still to come: According to Daniel 9:27, the tribulation begins with the signing of a peace treaty between the Antichrist and Israel, intended to be for one “seven,” that is, a set of seven years. But the “seven” is divided into halves: midway through the seven years, the Antichrist breaks the treaty and sets up in the temple a sacrilegious object (the “abomination that causes desolation”). The phrase “in the middle” indicates that the first half of the tribulation lasts for 3½ years (1,260 days, using a “prophetic year” of 360 days). Likewise, the second half of the tribulation lasts another 1,260 days (another 3½ years), for a total of seven years.

The Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and the Reich is also known as the Enabling Act. Passed on March 23, 1933, and proclaimed the next day, it became the cornerstone of Adolf Hitler's dictatorship. The act allowed him to enact laws, including ones that violated the Weimar Constitution, without the approval of either parliament or Reich President von Hindenburg.
On March 23, 1933, the Reichstag met in a Berlin opera house to vote on the Enabling Act. With the aisles packed with Nazi stormtroopers, the Reichstag voted to end democracy in Germany and make Hitler dictator of what he called the “Third Reich.” Reich is German for empire, so the third empire Review: How the Weimar Republic paved the way to its own ruin the question of just how the Weimar Republic became the Third Reich is more relevant than ever. There are many parallels to U.S. politics, often where least expected. Conservative elites who thought they could use the Nazis to their own ends—for German rearmament, for example—emerge as perhaps the clearest facilitators of Hitler’s rise. But the left, with its tendency toward factionalism, is also implicated. Among the most tragically shortsighted decisions in a book full of them is the German Communist Party’s decision to identify the Social Democratic Party, not the Nazis, as their main enemy. Once a critical mass of the left had abandoned a commitment to democracy, the center could not hold against the far right.

In our nation, we have the conservatives trying to uphold democracy and the republic with the far left abandoning it and wanting it destroyed…The most striking revelation in the book was how progressive the Weimar Republic was. This was a model democracy, with a constitution that included proportional representation. Berlin was a diverse city, a capital of culture and leftist politics. This was a model democracy, with a constitution that included proportional representation. Berlin was a diverse city, a capital of culture and leftist politics. A movement for L.G.B.T. rights in Weimar Germany was decades ahead of similar movements in the United States. And though most Germans shared grievances with the Nazis over the Treaty of Versailles, it was not inevitable that another war would break out over them. Some, like Foreign Minister Gustav Stresemann, believed that diplomacy and European integration were the best way to advance German aims. What might have been had Weimar democracy been allowed to grow up?

A doomed democracy, under siege from all sides. The one thing that can be said in defense of the Weimar Germans is that they did not know how bad it could get. The difference with us is we have a covenant with Almighty God and God takes great interest in what ultimately happens to that covenant.

Back in 2011, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder made a remarkable statement. He said: “The current [economic] crisis makes it relentlessly clear that we cannot have a common currency zone without a common fiscal, economic, and social policy… We will have to give up national sovereignty” That is the goal of globalists and those under the spirit of the antichrist, give up national sovereignty, herd the people like cattle to give up their sovereignty and be joined to other nations to make a zone, you think zoning for homes and areas in states is something harmless? They have been slowly trying to zone us for years inching us towards THEIR world order.

This is now beginning to happen. Nations in Europe are today giving up their sovereignty to make the European Union work. The British left the EU in 2016 because some didn’t like that fact! But when all give up their sovereignty, someone is in charge. Who will that someone be? As the Irish Independent newspaper stated, also in 2011, “[Since Germany] is providing the [financial] safety net for the whole Eurozone, no one is going to argue with them running everything…” (“Deutschland Uber alles, we are all Germans now.” Independent. ie, August 21, 2011).

September 9, 2021: Center for Global Development Germany is the world’s second-largest development donor after the US and the European Union’s (EU) largest aid provider. And yet its financial heft is not commensurate with its positioning on development in the EU. For the second time, Germany reached the aid target of 0.7 percent of gross national income (GNI) in 2020 (the first being in 2016, albeit in part due to its response to the high influx of refugees into the country), making significant contributions to the global pandemic response, including through the EU, COVAX, and the WHO. With a new government taking over the helm of the country and building on its financial firepower, Germany now has the opportunity to fully embrace a leadership role in the EU as an agenda-setter in development, driving forward innovative ideas, rather than as a mere broker.

Revelation 17–John described a span of centuries, from the Middle Ages to our time, during which successive empires rose and fell. Here is how it reads: “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time” (Revelation 17:9-10). John was saying there were to be seven leaders over seven successive kingdoms. Who were those leaders? Justinian, who united the eastern and western sections of the Roman empire in 556AD; Charlemagne, who was crowned in 800AD; Otto the Great, crowned as Holy Roman Emperor in 962AD; Charles V, in 1530AD; Napoleon, whose empire began in 1804; and the German-Italian alliance, which led to the Hitler-Mussolini Axis Powers of World War II. These are the first six of the seven kings. The final king will reign over ten other kings just before Jesus Christ returns and will attempt to fight against the Son of God. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.” (Revelation 17:12–13).
You might ask: What’s wrong with Germany taking a more dominant role on the European continent? After all, isn’t Germany one of America’s closest allies? Absolutely! The Germans are the friends of the Americans—for now. But it’s good to stop and ponder the fact that just 70 short years ago, Britain, France, America, Canada, and a whole host of other nations were locked in a bitter, life-and-death struggle with Germany and Italy. The Bible says it will happen again.

Germany and Italy this upcoming election cycle, watch them CLOSELY!


In 1898 on the cusp of world war 1: “Tirpitz (German top-ranking navy officer) aimed at forcing Britain into an alliance with Germany on German terms,” explains Eugene Beiriger, an associate professor of history, peace, justice, and conflict studies at DePaul University, and author of the 2018 book World War I: A Historical Exploration of Literature. Instead, the British responded by building even more ships, and by ending their late 1880s policy of “splendid isolation” to form alliances with Japan, France, and Russia. “The German Naval Laws created unintended consequences,” Beiriger says in an email. “They ended up alienating both the government and public of Britain prior to the war.” Also, the catalyst that truly pushed world war 1 into hyperdrive. The Archduke, who was heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, went to Sarajevo to inspect the imperial troops stationed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He and his wife Sophie were shot to death in their car by a 19-year-old Serbian revolutionary, Gavrilo Princip.
“The assassination highlighted the nationalism that was pulling the Austro-Hungarian Empire apart at the seams,” Fogarty explains, noting that Serbian extremists actually wanted Franz Ferdinand dead because they feared he was too moderate and would promote a power-sharing arrangement that would keep Slavic peoples in the empire. “His assassination killed the idea, whether or not it was ever realistic to begin with, and radicalized Serbian defiance and Austrian determination to solve the nationalism problem for good, at least with respect to Serbia,” Fogarty says. Instead, the tension between European powers increased, as they took different sides in the crisis. As the U.K.’s Imperial War Museum notes, the killing put both Austria-Hungary and Russia, which saw itself as the Serbians’ protector, in a bind. Neither one of them wanted to back down and appear weak. Fearing a fight that would draw in Russia, Austria-Hungary turned for help to Germany, which promised backing if the Austro-Hungarians used force against the Serbians. German support emboldened Austria-Hungary to declare war on Serbia on July 28. Two days later, Russia’s military mobilized, and the Germans saw that they too were in a bind. They didn’t want to fight both Russia and its ally France on two fronts simultaneously, so it became imperative to knock the French military out of the war before Russia was ready to fight. Germany declared war on Russia on August 1, and two days later declared war against France. German forces gathered on the border of neutral Belgium, which they planned to cross in order to invade France. Belgium called for help, and on August 4, Great Britain declared war on Germany.

World War I had begun. This ultimately put Germany is such a weakened position financially, militarily, and spiritually that it created a perfect storm of conditions for a dictator to then arise promising to turn that ship of Germany back on course, however, all it did was push it into dark deep waters…

Ephesians 2:1-2:
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,  2  in which you once walked according to the  [a] course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
Things are coming full circle, events of the past are on a track to potentially repeat themselves.
Nationalism: identification with one’s own nation and support for its interests, especially to
the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations. Meaning we put our nation's own needs ahead of other nations and take care of our nation first, and make sure our nation is solid, so we can be of assistance at times to others in need The radical and left have attempted to take nationalism and turn it into a Scarlett letter, why? Because in attempting to destroy a nation and enslave it the last thing you want is for the people to take an involved interest in preserving it, and cherishing its founding documents, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

European nations are giving up national sovereignty, and a vacuum of power will always be filled. A 2017 report published by Foreign Policy magazine explained how a growing number of European countries are integrating some of their own brigades into Germany’s military, the Bundeswehr, which literally means federal defense.

Romania’s 81st Mechanized Brigade will join the Bundeswehr’s Rapid Response Forces Division, while the Czech 4th Rapid Deployment Brigade, which has served in Afghanistan and Kosovo and is considered the Czech Army’s spearhead force, will become part of the Germans’ 10th Armored Division. In doing so, they’ll follow in the footsteps of two Dutch brigades, one of which has already joined the Bundeswehr’s Rapid Response Forces Division and another that has been integrated into the Bundeswehr’s 1st Armored Division (Elisabeth Shaw. “Germany Is Quietly Building a European Army Under Its Command.” ForeignPolicy.com, May 22, 2017). Merging—but someone is in charge. Guess who? The Germans. Do you see what’s happening? It’s all so slow and so peaceful, and for peaceful aims—such as fighting terrorism. But, little by little, Germany is coming to dominate Europe politically and militarily. If we had nothing to guide us, not understanding prophecy, we might see Germany’s rearming as a good thing. What could be better than a powerful ally on the other side of the Atlantic? Especially one that is “committed” to democratic principles, personal liberties, and fiscal responsibility. However, the prophecy speaks of the final resurgence of an ancient nation that comes forth out of the old Roman Empire, that leads the world in a military buildup like we have never seen before. Daniel chapter 11 details 2,500 years of prophecy, from the time of the Persian Empire to the return of Jesus Christ. One of the major themes of the chapter is the ongoing conflict between the “king of the North” and the “king of the South.” The potential Europe has to become the Beast power may fill that role as the “king of the North.” And this is how Daniel describes him: “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place, he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things” (Daniel 11:37–38). Daniel is saying this king of the North would actually worship a “god of fortresses”—of “forces” or “strongholds.” This empire will be so intent on obtaining and developing the most powerful weapons on earth that the Bible describes it as virtually worshipping its own military strength. Who is that going to be? Not the United States. No this is across the Atlantic, Not with the US staggering debt. The Roman Empire Stretched from central and western Europe to parts of the middle east and the border of Africa and included parts of what is now France, Germany, and Italy.

Only 4 percent of Germans say they read the Bible every day, according to a poll conducted by Insa-Consulere and the German Christian's news agency IDEA. A full 70 percent say they never read it at all. A survey from 2021 found that 11 percent of Americans read the Bible daily….The Germans’ lineage is revealed in Bible and secular history. The Bible records that the early roots of modern civilization after the Flood began in the northern regions of the Mesopotamia Valley, which is well known as the cradle of civilization.

One of Noah’s sons, Shem, was the forefather of Asshur (Genesis 10:22). Genesis 10:22  The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram. The descendants of Asshur became known as the Assyrians. In the eighth and seventh centuries B.C., the Assyrians built a powerful empire in the upper Mesopotamian Valley. That empire collapsed and the Assyrians then began to migrate into central Europe. DNA analysis of ancient remains in Central Europe, including Germany, backs the biblical record: “[T]he foundations of the modern gene pool were laid down between 4,000 and 2,000 B.C.” from “a wave of migration by Near Eastern farmers some 6,000 years ago” (BBC.com, April 23, 2013). The Assyrians worshipped the false goddess Ishtar, known as Ashtoreth to Israel, One of the 3 main false gods that caused Israel to fall to pagan nations Ishtar would be so revered among the Assyrians that she would be elevated to the highest deity in their pantheon.

There are connections between Ishtar and Germany as well as the United States. The Ishtar Gate was the eighth gate to the inner city of Babylon [citation needed]  (in the area of present-day Hillah,  Babil Governorate, Iraq). It was constructed circa 575 BCE by order of King Nebuchadnezzar II on the north side of the city. It was part of a grand walled processional way leading into the city. The walls were finished in glazed bricks mostly in blue, with animals and deities in low relief at intervals, these were also made up of bricks that are molded and colored differently. The German archaeologist Robert Koldewey led the excavation of the site from 1904 to 1914.

10.11.2020 to 03.10.2021
The reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate in the Pergamon Museum has fascinated visitors to Berlin’s Museum Island for nearly ninety years. The Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II (604–562 BC) built the spectacular gate in Babylon. After the fall of the Babylonian Empire in the late 6th century BC, the gate gradually disintegrated, so that only small fragments were found during the excavation in Babylon. These were then used to reconstruct a section of the gate in Berlin. Today, many visitors wonder how it made its way to the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin. And we wonder why Berlin was such a center for such conflict and oppression and destruction FACT: There is actually a city called Baal Germany.

Altar of Zeus/Throne of satan in Germany
In Revelation 2:12, we read about one of the seven churches, “the church in Pergamum …where Satan’s throne is.” The ancient city of Pergamum, or Pergamon, was the center of pagan worship in Asia Minor. The once-thriving city lay forgotten and in ruins till 1864 when German engineer Carl Humann began excavating it, finding one of the antiquities’ greatest monuments, the Altar of Zeus. The altar was excavated and taken stone by stone to Berlin where it was reassembled in its own museum. The Turkish government agreed that the ancient foundation of the Pergamon Altar ─Satan’s Throne─became the property of Germany. In 1930 the Pergamon Museum was opened to the public. A few years later, the Nazi Party’s chief architect, Albert Speer, was commissioned by the new chancellor, Adolf Hitler, to design the parade grounds for the party rallies in Nuremberg. Speer turned to the Pergamon Altar for inspiration. Using the altar as a model, Speer created a colossal grandstand, known as the Zeppelin tribune. In the following years’ mass rallies, Hitler descended down the steps like a tribune in ancient Rome. Most of the Nuremberg rallies were held at night. The grandstand was surrounded with 150 searchlights and the light columns extended for a mile in the sky, creating the mystical effect Hitler wanted. This effect was known as the “Cathedral of Light.” Inside the rally grounds, thousands of Nazi Party members marched in torchlight parades. From the altar’s podium, Hitler mesmerized the crowds as they swore a “holy oath” to Germany.

On the evening of September 15, 1935, Hitler announced the Nuremberg Laws. “The law for the protection of German Blood and German Honor was intended to begin the marginalization process of the Jewish people,” said Dr. Anthony R. Santoro (Professor at Christopher Newport University). The new laws stripped the Jews of their rights as citizens. Then the Reich citizenship law was introduced, stating that Jewish people in Germany were subjects of the Reich, but not citizens. It was also in Nuremberg that Hitler used the phrase Final Solution for the first time in public. Hitler’s Final Solution is known as the Holocaust, a word that comes from a Greek word meaning “a wholly burnt animal sacrifice.” On the ancient Altar of Zeus in Pergamon, burnt sacrifice was practiced. Centuries later in German’s Nuremberg, in the redesigned Pergamon Altar, Hitler announced his Final Solution to the world and this time, the burnt sacrifice was six million Jews.

United States of America
Arch of Baal New York City September 20, 2016 (it will be 7 years this September that the arch of Baal was displayed in NYC) In a recent statement, Roger Michael, the Executive Director of the IDA, drew parallels between the destruction of Palmyra’s landmarks and the violence that has marred London and New York’s landscape. “It is our hope that the arch, itself an icon of destruction and rebirth, will remind visitors of both the universality of suffering and the indomitable human capacity to rebuild what has been lost.” 
The Arch of Baal was originally re-created in London. A replica of a Syrian monument, two millennia old and destroyed by the so-called Islamic State in Syria, has been erected in London’s Trafalgar Square. The scale model of the Arch of Triumph has been made from Egyptian marble by the Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDA) using 3D technology, based on photographs of the original arch. It will travel to cities around the world after leaving London.

Russia Restoring Arch of Baal
November 14, 2021–ALEPPO, Syria — Russia continues to promote its restoration of historical sites in Syria. Russia’s ambassador to Syria, Alexander Yefimov, announced his country’s intention to restore the ancient Arch of Triumph that was destroyed by the Islamic State (IS) in the Syrian city of Palmyra, according to a three-dimensional digital model.

Why was Russia in 2021 Restoring the Arch of Baal? Perhaps getting ready for the Gog Magog war, to open portals to call on this horrible entity for military power. This is something to keep watch of the main players in world war 1 and 2 all had visits from this Arch of Baal, and many replicas of Ishtar. Baal is on a world tour. For what? October 17, 2018–The replica of an arch of an ancient Baal temple has been erected in public spaces in the world’s major cities since April 2016. In Trafalgar Square, London, during the three days leading up to the Jewish Passover; in Florence, Italy, during the G7 summit; in Dubai, during the World Government summit; in New York City last year; and this month at Capitol Mall in Washington DC. He then travels to Amsterdam and Syria…Arch of Baal: New York City and Washington DC The golden Ishtar-looking Statue placed atop the New York City Court House January 2023. Claiming it was in honor of ruth bader Ginsburg one of the biggest advocates of abortion there ever was Ishtar: false goddess of fertility divine law.


As I said, Germany, the United States, the Weimar Republic, these replicas hitting certain nations at certain times, it's all connected….

In the early hours of June 25, 2022, Chris and I were in New Jersey at Mantle of Power Ministries in Cranford, NJ. I had the humble privilege of ministering with Charlie Shamp and Robin Bullock and his team and family. I must tell you God absolutely moved in a mighty way! In the early hours of June 25, 2022, just 1 day after the ruling on Roe V Wade came down from the Supreme Court, I had a dream. I was so tired from ministering that I did not expect this, however, the Lord had other plans. This was the dream The Lord had me at a safe distance to witness what I did. I saw a sandy-colored, stone bridge, the ones that go over a moat to a castle entrance. You have seen it before, you have this stone bridge going over water and then there is the entrance or a gate. At the other side of this bridge, opposite the gate, was an army of people, not great in number but maybe 40ish people were there on horses. The leader was on his horse standing in front of them. They looked a bit frail and weak. On the other side behind this gate, I see something VERY dark. And the leader with the band of 40 or so, says anxiously but calmly OPEN THE GATE. This was a gate from an ancient castle, the ones you can see through that protected from entry. When this leader said open the gate, the gate opened all on its own and what I saw come through was from the kingdom of darkness. There was a huge army all on black horses, all those on those horses in black, and at the head was their leader. He was on a very large black horse, and he was cloaked, the hood of the cloak came over his eyes and covered over half his face so I could not see his face. I believe it was his left hand that held a black staff and at the top of that staff was a crystal ball. When the gate opened he and this dark army charged toward these leaders on the other side with such force. However, one of those leaders from the company of 40 or so defected and ran when this dark army came in, ran on his horse, and ran through neighborhoods to get away, I was only allowed to see this person’s back. This dream has to do with Europe ushering in the Spirit of the antichrist, actually attempting to prematurely bring it in out of desperation, and jumping the gun on domination. The Assyrians, those same rulers of the darkness that brought Assyria to destroy Israel, are the same rulers that brought up Germany to try and destroy the Jewish people, It’s the same high-ranking spirit in the kingdom of darkness that keeps raising up puppets to try and destroy the people of God, and now is at work in the United States of America The Spirit of lawlessness is most definitely at work Sennacherib, Israel and Hezekiah and the Rabshakeh….

2 Kings 18:1-6
18 Now it came about in the third year of Hoshea the son of Elah, king of Israel, Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah became king.  2  He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Abi the daughter of Zechariah.  3  Hezekiah did right in the sight of the LORD, in accordance with everything that David his father (ancestor) had done.  4  He removed the high places [of pagan worship], broke down the images (memorial stones), and cut down the Asherim. He also crushed to pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the Israelites had burned incense to it; and it was called  [a] Nehushtan [a bronze sculpture].  5  Hezekiah trusted in and relied confidently on the LORD, the God of Israel; so that after him there was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, nor among those who were before him.  6  For he clung to the LORD; he did not turn away from [faithfully] following Him, but he kept His commandments, which the LORD had commanded Moses.

2 Kings 18:17-36
17  Then the king of Assyria sent  [c] the Tartan and the Rab-saris and the Rabshakeh [his highest officials] with a large army, from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem. They went up and came to Jerusalem, and when they went up and arrived, they stood by the aqueduct of the upper pool, which is on the road of the Fuller’s Field.  18  When they called for the king, Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the [king’s] household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the secretary went out to [meet] them. 19  Then the Rabshakeh said to them, “Say to Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria, “What is [the reason for] this confidence that you have?  20  You say (but they are only empty words) ‘I have counsel and strength for the war.’ Now on whom do you rely, that you have rebelled against me?  21  Now pay attention: you are relying on Egypt, on that staff of crushed reed; if a man leans on it, it will only go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust and rely on him.  22  But if you tell me, ‘We trust in and rely on the LORD our God,’ is it not He whose high places and altars Hezekiah has removed, and has said to Judah and Jerusalem, ‘You shall worship [only] before this altar in Jerusalem’?  23  Now then, make a bargain with my lord the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if on your part you can put riders on them.  24  How then can you drive back even one official of the least of my master’s servants, when you rely on Egypt for chariots and horsemen?  25  Now have I come up against this place to destroy it without the LORD’S approval? The LORD said to me, ‘Go up against this land and destroy it.’ 26  Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebna and Joah, said to the Rabshakeh, “Please speak to your servants in the Aramaic (Syrian) language, because we understand it; and do not speak with us in the Judean (Hebrew) language in the hearing of the people who are on the wall.”  27  But the Rabshakeh said to them, “Has my master sent me only to your master and to you to say these things? Has he not sent me to the men who sit on the wall, [who are doomed by the siege] to eat their own excrement and drink their own urine along with you?” 28  Then the Rabshakeh stood and shouted out with a loud voice in Judean (Hebrew), “Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria.  29  Thus says the king, ‘Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to rescue you from my hand;  30  nor let Hezekiah make you trust in and rely on the LORD, saying, “The LORD will certainly rescue us, and this city [of Jerusalem] will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.”  31  Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria: “Surrender to me and come out to [meet] me, and every man may eat from his own vine and fig tree, and every man may drink the waters of his own well,  32  until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey, so that you may live and not die.” Do not listen to Hezekiah when he misleads and incites you, saying, “The LORD will rescue us!”  33  Has any one of the gods of the nations ever rescued his land from the hand of the king of Assyria?  34  Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad [in Aram]? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivvah [in the valley of the Euphrates]? Have they rescued Samaria (Israel’s capital) from my hand?  35  Who among all the gods of the lands have rescued their lands from my hand, that the LORD would rescue Jerusalem from my hand?’ 36  But the people kept silent and did not answer him, for the king had commanded, “Do not answer him.”  37  Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the [royal] household, and Shebna the scribe and Joah the son of Asaph the secretary, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn [in grief and despair] and told him what the Rabshakeh had said.

2 Kings 19:8-14 Sennacherib Defies God
8  So the Rabshakeh returned and found the king of Assyria fighting against Libnah [a fortified city of Judah]; for he had heard that the king had left Lachish.  9  When the king heard them say concerning Tirhakah king of  [a] Ethiopia, “Behold, he has come out to make war against you,” he sent messengers again to Hezekiah, saying,  10  “Say this to Hezekiah king of Judah, ‘Do not let your God on whom you rely deceive you by saying, “Jerusalem shall not be handed over to the king of Assyria.”  11  Listen, you have heard what the Assyrian kings have done to all the lands, destroying them completely. So will you be spared?  12  Did the gods of the nations whom my forefathers destroyed rescue them—Gozan and Haran [of Mesopotamia] and Rezeph and the people of Eden who were in Telassar?  13  Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad [of northern Syria], the king of the city of Sepharvaim, and of Hena and Ivvah?” Hezekiah’s Prayer 14  Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the house (temple) of the LORD and spread it out before the LORD.  15  Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said, “O LORD, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim [of the  [b] ark in the temple], You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made the heavens and the earth.  16  O LORD, bend down Your ear and hear; LORD, open Your eyes and see; hear the [taunting] words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to taunt and defy the living God.  17  It is true, LORD, that the Assyrian kings have devastated the nations and their lands  18  and have thrown their gods into the fire, for they were not [real] gods but [only] the work of men’s hands, wood and stone. So they [could destroy them and] have destroyed them.  19  Now, O LORD our God, please, save us from his hand so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know [without any doubt] that You alone, O LORD, are God.”

2 Kings 19:22-28
22 ‘Whom have you taunted and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised your voice, And haughtily lifted up your eyes? Against the Holy One of Israel! 23 ‘Through your messengers you have taunted and defied the Lord, And have said [boastfully], “With my many chariots I came up to the heights of the mountains, To the remotest parts of Lebanon; I cut down its tall cedar trees and its choicest cypress trees. I entered its most distant lodging, its densest forest. 24 “I dug wells and drank foreign waters, And with the sole of my feet I dried up All the rivers of [the Lower Nile of] Egypt.” 25 ‘Have you not heard [asks the God of Israel]? Long ago I did it; From ancient times I planned it. Now I have brought it to pass, That you [king of Assyria] should [be My instrument to] turn fortified cities into ruinous heaps. 26 ‘Therefore their inhabitants were powerless, They were shattered [in spirit] and put to shame; They were like plants of the field, the green herb, As grass on the housetops is scorched before it is grown up. 27 ‘But I [the LORD] know your sitting down [O Sennacherib], Your going out, your coming in, And your raging against Me. 28 ‘Because of your raging against Me, And because your arrogance and complacency have come up to My ears, I will put My hook in your nose, And My bridle in your lips, And I will turn you back [to Assyria] by the way that you came.

1 John 4:5-6
5  They [who teach twisted doctrine] are of the world and belong to it; therefore they speak from the [viewpoint of the] world [with its immoral freedom and baseless theories—demanding compliance with their opinions and ridiculing the values of the upright], and the [gullible one of the] world listens closely and pays attention to them.  6  We [who teach God’s word] are from God [energized by the Holy Spirit], and whoever knows God [through personal experience] listens to us [and has a deeper understanding of Him]. Whoever is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know [without any doubt] the spirit of truth [motivated by God] and the spirit of error [motivated by Satan].

1 John 4:1-3
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  2  By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;  3  and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
