666 - the obvious, THE OBVIOUS

Reader comment on item: [Symposium] What Conservative Historians Are Saying about Trump's First 100 Days
in response to reader comment: President Trump Does Not Need to Keep the 100 Day Calendar - It's Not His Calendar That's in Trouble

Submitted by Michael S, May 5, 2017 at 10:27

Hi, Tovey. You said,

"So, it is a mistake that if President Trump cannot get the agenda he ran on to gain too much momentum in the first 100 days, that it is his fault."

I'm neither a judge nor an attorney, so it matters little to me who is at "fault" in these matters. The fact is, that Trump has faced stiff opposition to his agenda, at every turn. Ultimately, it would be appropriate to credit God for these obstacles; and it is impossible to miss His hand in the matter, if one is astute. Charles Krauthammer, who has said much in favor of the President, rejoiced at one point, that the Democrats are finding, at every turn, new "checks and balances" such as using state district attorneys to logjam executive orders. It was the Founding Fathers who invented these obstacles, providing for them in the very writing of the Constitution.

Now, I will ask a few questions of you as a Christian. Do we actually WANT Trump to carry out his agenda. I can't remember any President who was more explicit in defining his agenda, which is:

"MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN"

That sounds an awful lot like the Biblical,

Gen. 10:
[4] And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and LET US MAKE US A NAME, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
[5] And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
[6] And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
[7] Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech... and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

That enterprise began in human pride, just like the pride that motivated the MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN campaign; and God, then as now, put roadblocks in the path of it.

I have often noted that America is the "Great Babylon" of the scriptures. There are many reasons for this:

1. Babylon, in the time of Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel, was the place of the Jewish exile, as America is today. This is alluded to, in the passage,

Rev. 18
[1] And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
[2] And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
[3] For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
[4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
[5] For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Christians, for centuries, have been calling Babylon "The Papacy", and -- at least in the past 72 years -- ignoring the obvious. That's because Christians, in their great PRIDE, refuse to acknowledge that the Jews, even today, are God's people. Yet today, what Jared Kushner calls "the greatest city on earth", New York City, centered on 666 Fifth Avenue (Kushner's flagship property), is the largest Jewish city on earth, the focus of the Jewish Diaspora. Among much, much other evidence,

2. Note the passage,

Rev. 18:
[8] Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
[9] And THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see THE SMOKE OF HER BURNING,
[10] Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Again, the obvious: take a look at the picture seen around the world, by kings and slaves alike:

Again, what city on earth matches the following?

Rev. 18:
[11] And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
[12] The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
[13] And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
[14] And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
[15] The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
[16] And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
[17] For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
[18] And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, WHAT CITY IS LIKE UNTO THIS GREAT CITY!

To put it into Jared Kushner's words,

"The Kushners were multifamily developers from New Jersey, and the purchase of 666 Fifth Ave. signaled their intentions in Manhattan—and the "debut" of young Jared, who not long before had been enrolled in a business and law degree program at New York University. "I love New York—it's the greatest city in the world," Kushner told the Real Deal after he closed the deal in 2007. "In this particular transaction, we bought really the center of the world, Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street. It doesn't get any better than that.""

Again, the obvious. Many atheists and pagans will understand what is happening here, while God's Christian and Jewish people refuse to believe.

Revelation 13:
[11] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
[12] And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
[13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
[14] And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
[15] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
[16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
[17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
[18] Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666.

"[13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men:"

Who, more than anyone else, is able to do these things? The Pope??? Again, the 666OBVIOUS666.

Again,

Rev. 13:
[17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Who has the authority to control the world's finance?

Again, not the Pope, but the obvious: Wall Street (New York), the US Treasury, the IMF (both in Washington, DC) and the UN (New York); and the epicenter of New York's financial district is 666 Fifth Avenue, bought by the very young and incredibly powerful Jared Kushner.

Not the Pope, not George Soros, not Henry Kissinger, not Donald Trump, but the "Trump Whisperer":
