1. WE DIDN'T SEE HALLEY'S COMET‚ MAYBE WE WON'T SEE THE ANTICHRIST THIS YEAR EITHER! See, I give out theories & some people take them down as a Gospel fact, incontrovertible & unchangeable! They take them as absolutes instead of mere theories & interpretations. (Maria: So does that mean the Lord changed His mind?) I don't think the Lord ever said as an incontrovertible fact that the Antichrist was going to appear this year, that was my interpretation, my theory, my computation, my guesstimate! I don't think you can find me a single flat-out statement anywhere in anything I've written or said, that I knew the Antichrist was going to appear this year! I thought Halley's Comet was going to come this year too, but it didn't! (Maria: It didn't come?) No, it didn't really, it wasn't enough to be a sign. (Significant? Has AC come secretly?)
2. I'M NOT SAYING THE ANTICHRIST COULDN'T COME THIS YEAR, BUT AS SLOWLY AS THINGS ARE MOVING RIGHT NOW, I DON'T KNOW! I might compare it in a simile to the Comet: The Comet came, but didn't appear, really, not like they expected it to. The Antichrist may come into power & be controlling things from behind the scenes this year, but nevertheless be unseen & unrevealed. (Maria: Therefore it might be the beginning of his reign, but not the beginning of the last seven years, which begins with the signing of the Covenant.) (He could be reigning already!)
3. I'M SURE HE MUST BE BEHIND THE SCENES SOMEWHERE RIGHT NOW! He might be behind the scenes somewhere right now! He's probably the one who's engineering & pulling all the strings for all this Protocol plot of the [ACs] & their propaganda & the media! He's probably directing all these things that happen. If he's alive & that old & that demon-possessed & Devil-inspired, he could be in control right now behind the scenes!
4. THE [ACS] ARE IN CONTROL, & THAT'S WHAT THEY'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! So if they're in control, why couldn't he be in control? But I'm just saying we may not see him this year‚ we may not know it, any more than we saw Halley's Comet! I didn't even bother to look when I found out you still had to have binoculars! I wasn't going to go out there & have to search for the thing! It wasn't much of a Comet if you had to search for it! It certainly didn't show itself off this time the way it has in the past, where it streamed across the sky with a huge tail & everybody was standing out gawking at it! It was nothing! Almost all the commentators are saying it was a great disappointment & it really didn't live up to its reputation, etc., which it certainly didn't!
5. MAYBE THE LORD JUST FELT THE WORLD NO LONGER DESERVED A WARNING‚ THEY NO LONGER DESERVE TO HAVE SUCH A SPECTACULAR WARNING! Because a lot of people are pretty superstitious & they would have thought it was a warning from God, just like they have in the past! But since it failed to show up really visibly or spectacularly, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people have gone back to rest now & said, "Well, things continue as they were since the days of the fathers, why worry? It didn't come, it's no warning‚ so maybe nothing's going to happen!" (2Pet.3:3-4)
6. (MARIA: COULD IT BE THE DEVIL TRYING TO DEFEAT THE WORD OF GOD IN OUR COMET POSTERS?—Because we've gotten those out by the thousands!) Like I said last time, the Tale of the Prophets was the tail of this Comet as far as we're concerned! We at least got out the warning, just like we did with Kohoutek! (See "The Comet's Tale," ML #295.)
7. I'LL TELL YOU, I DON'T SEE HOW IT COULD BE POSSIBLE THAT THE ANTICHRIST IS NOT ALREADY RUNNING THINGS‚ WHEREVER THE [ACS] CONTROL FROM BEHIND THE SCENES! The Lord showed me that in "The Green Paper Pig" (ML #243) years ago when they were obviously already running the finances of the World, as nearly everybody knows! So now they've got things pretty much their way.
8. THEY'VE CONVINCED EUROPE & VIRTUALLY THE WHOLE WORLD NOW TO CLAMP DOWN ON POOR LITTLE OLD LIBYA! You know what this whole campaign against terrorism is, don't you? It's all staged by the [ACs] to get rid of one of their bitterest enemies! This whole show against Libya is a staged, trumped-up campaign! The [ACs] & the [AC] media found out that the "Hate Libya" campaign is very popular! They're giving terrorism as an excuse, but it has nothing to do with terrorism! They are stirring up the whole World to try to get'm all together to trounce Libya, & then they've got one enemy off their back—a bitter enemy who really hates Israel & the way they've treated the Palestinians, & is an ardent advocate of Palestine & the Arabs!
9. THEY'VE GOT A LIBYAN FIXATION!—AN ANTI-GODAHFI FIXATION NOW! Now it's getting to be popular to be anti–Godahfi & Libya! They've shaped all World opinion, except a few smart poor Third World countries who sympathise with Godahfi! Well, let's say they've shaped virtually the whole Western World opinion anti-Godahfi. But the vast majority of the Third World & virtually all the Eastern World at least are sympathetic with Godahfi! It's just the West that they really rule right now. They still don't quite rule some of the East, but they're making progress.
10. SO HE'S THERE, HE'S SOMEWHERE BEHIND THE SCENES & I'M SURE HE'S RUNNING EVERYTHING HE CAN! But we may not see him this year‚ we may not know it. In fact, the Lord even speaks of "then shall that man of sin be revealed" (2Th.2:3). There's been all kinds of speculation about what that meant. Does that mean he won't even appear until then?—Or does that mean his true nature won't be revealed until the End of the Trib?
11. "LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME"—the day of the Lord's coming—"except there come a falling away first"—that's happened already—"& that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth & exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2Th.2:3‚4).
12. NOW OBVIOUSLY THAT CAN'T HAPPEN UNTIL THE TEMPLE IS REBUILT, & IT'S NOT REBUILT YET! But they've got all the materials there stored in warehouses to rebuild the Temple. That's common knowledge, it's been in the newspaper many times. They say they could rebuild it within a few months once they get the clearance & go-ahead & are able to be sure it will be safe to do so. But right now they've got a little problem, the Mosque of Omar is sitting there on the same hill a few yards away from the original Temple site. It's the Dome of the Rock, it covers the altar which was out in front of the Temple.
13. SO QUITE A FEW THINGS HAVE TO HAPPEN BEFORE HE CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS HERE HE'S DOING! But it doesn't say exactly when that revelation will take place, the revelation of the Antichrist. Does this mean when he reveals his true nature at the breaking of the contract & the setting up of the Idol? Does this mean that is the revelation of the Antichrist?—Or does it mean at the signing of the Covenant? Is that going to be his revelation? To us I think it will be. But if it means the revelation of his true nature as being anti-God & totally Godless, making himself a god, if that's what his revelation means, that's gotta wait until the middle of the seven years. (Or even later?)
14. BUT I THINK ONCE THAT COVENANT IS SIGNED—if it is signed publicly—that it may be revealed to us at that time. But his true nature & intent & his true purpose won't be revealed to the whole World until the breaking of the Covenant & setting himself up as god!
15. IN OTHER WORDS, HE COULD BE BEHIND THE SCENES RIGHT NOW! We don't even know that the Covenant is going to be signed publicly! Lots of secret agreements have been made between nations & countries before. It doesn't look like that kind of a Covenant could possibly be signed without being made public if it's going to help save World peace & the economy, but the Protocols were signed privately, secretly, in fact they now even deny them!—And that was a kind of a Covenant! And yet the Protocols is the design & the plot‚ the conspiracy & reveals the whole plan! That's their Covenant, but they deny it even exists! (See "The Program of the Antichrist!", ML #1342.)
16. WHO KNOWS BUT WHAT MAYBE THE COVENANT WILL BE SIGNED BETWEEN POWERFUL NATIONS OF THE EARTH!—A peace agreement between Russia & the U.S.! Wouldn't that be a masterful stroke, with various promises & whatnot, at least to save the World from total destruction? And particularly, the thing they're most worried about first of all is to save the World from the economic collapse!
17. SO THERE HAVE BEEN LOTS OF SECRET AGREEMENTS & SECRET COVENANTS & SECRET TREATIES EVEN BETWEEN NATIONS! It didn't come out until long after many a war what the peace terms really were! It didn't come out until long after World War 2 what Roosevelt & Stalin & Churchill agreed to & how they definitely, specifically divided up Europe & the World between them, seeing they were winning the war & about to win. They had to sit down & work out who got what, & that's when they drew the line down Europe & divided Germany & gave Eastern Europe to Russia & made Britain vow it would give up its empire, & made the U.S. vow it would force Britain to give up all of its colonies.
18. ALL THOSE SPECIFIC AGREEMENTS WERE MADE AT THAT TIME, & NOW THEY'RE KNOWN! But they were not known at that time at all! All you knew was that they had a conference in Yalta with Roosevelt & Churchill & Stalin, etc. Then after World War 2, when Roosevelt had died & Truman was in, they had another conference, this time at Potsdam. And there they made the agreement even more specific, exactly how they divided things up & who got what, etc.—all in secret & not publicised!
19. THEY'RE NOT CONSULTING THE PEOPLE AT ALL! All these countries call themselves democracies, except Russia, but they didn't give the people any say-so whatsoever, much less the people whose countries were divided & handed out! A lot of those people in the East Bloc countries didn't want to go to Russia at all! It was all done secretly, agreed secretly together, not even with the congresses or the parliaments or the governments! The whole deal was worked out privately, personally, with just the top leaders of the main countries. They made it all as a secret agreement. So there have been lots of secret agreements if you study history, the terms of which treaties were not revealed until years later!
20. SO WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THAT EVEN THE COVENANT COULD ORIGINALLY BE SECRETLY DONE & WE MAY NOT EVEN KNOW IT'S BEEN MADE UNTIL LATER! I wouldn't be surprised if it's already written up as a part of the plot & the plan! In fact, I don't doubt that it's probably already actually written & formed & been discussed‚ at least by the [ACs], that's for sure, & the Antichrist! Now it's merely a matter of time for the World to get in a position where they're willing to sign. And it may be done secretly behind closed doors just by top World leaders! (—Or has already been signed!)
21. AND TO MAKE IT EFFECTIVE, IT WOULD ONLY HAVE TO BE DONE, ACTUALLY, BETWEEN WHAT TWO TOP WORLD LEADERS? (PETER: THE U.S. & RUSSIA!)—Exactly! If they make a Covenant‚ just the two of them‚ that's it! That will decide the World's future‚ whether the little countries like it or not! Of course, then they'll want to probably prepare them for what it contains & gradually let it out, just like they did the Yalta Agreement & the Potsdam Agreement. Gradually it was revealed. Just like Roosevelt knew the [Japanese] were on their way to bomb Pearl Harbor but didn't tell anybody, in order that it would be such a big atrocity & monstrosity that it would make the American people mad enough to declare war, which they had not been ready to do before!
22. LOTS OF THINGS GO ON IN SECRET THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT, & ARE STILL GOING ON, & WILL GO ON, IN WHICH THESE GUYS WILL MAKE SECRET AGREEMENTS!—And about all it would take is for the U.S. President & the head of Russia to get together secretly & agree on some Covenant or Pact & sign it‚ & gradually let the World know what it's all about. It took years for Yalta & Potsdam to come out!
23. SO I'M JUST TRYING TO SHOW YOU, WE DON'T HAVE TO SEE THE ANTICHRIST TO KNOW HE'S AROUND! We don't have to even see & hear of the Covenant! That won't mean it hasn't been already made!—Maybe in one of these summit meetings between Gorbachev & dear Reagan!—Is it later than we think?
