-- A Bible prophecy and New Age analysis
Following the September 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks by airliner on the U.S., the U.S.
declared a war on terror
against these Extremist Muslim terrorists of Ussamah bin Laden and the countries that harbor them, including the Taliban in Afghanistan. And ISIS Muslim terrorists have become the greater problem in the last few years.
Astrologically, note that the Sept. 11, 2001 attack occurred 3 months after the planet Mars,
connected with war, reached
opposition, being the brightest its been in 13 years.
Also, beginning in June 2001, a giant dust storm spread over the planet Mars, covering half of the planet by September, another indication of war.
Also, war occurring is related to the
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
riding beginning in April 2001, as described on this page.
So how does this fit into the pattern of the End Time events that I describe on the
main page of this Revelation13.net web site, related to
the rise of the Antichrist? How does this war against terrorism relate to the prophecies
described in Revelation?
I think that these terrorists are causing events that result in the four horsemen of the
Apocalypse riding -- in particular the second horseman, war.
Note that the prophecies of
Nostradamus do appear to
vaguely talk about a Muslim attack on the West.
But I think this Muslim Terrorist War is more part of the events
that bring about the rise of the Antichrist, Putin,
and possibly a world war in the future.
It appears that there were 2 political families that were destined to guide the U.S. through the 20th century and into the 21st century: Kennedy and Bush. Note that there were similar origins to both of these political familes: both George Bush and John Kennedy were World War 2 heroes in the South Pacific war against Japan.
Concerning the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the U.S., consider the quote with that number (9:11) from the Book of Revelation, King James version, that I have listed below, beginning with 9:1:
Revelation 9, King James version:
"9:1: And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
2: And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3: And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4: And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5: And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6: And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7: And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8: And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9: And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10: And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11: And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon (meaning "The Destroyer")
12: One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
13: And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
14: Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
15: And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
16: And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17: And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18: By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19: For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt."
Note that Revelation 9:11 refers to the "Angel of the Bottomless Pit", I think this is referring to the dark angel, also called an evil spirit or demon, Osama Bin-Laden, who is responsible for the Sept., 11 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S.. So this "Angel of the Bottomless Pit" is a demon inhabiting the body of a terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden. Note that the names in Revelation 9:11 translate as meaning "the destroyer", certainly a fitting name for Osama bin Laden. So the date 9-11 tells us that passage of Revelation 9:11 applies here, the passage about the Angel of the Bottomless Pit, "The Destroyer", an unclean spirit from the depths of Hell (the Bottomless Pit), Osama ben Ladun.
Also note the description in Revelation 9 of war involving attack helicopters in 9:7 and missles being launched in 9:17. This appears to be describing war in the Middle East.
Also, two Rennaisance era artworks have a resemblance to Osama. Look at "The Fifth Trumpet", from "The Apocalypse of Angers", by Nicolas de Bataille, Angers, France, 1380 A.D.. This shows "The Destroyer" of Revelation 9:11, note that there is a resemblance to Osama on horseback. Also "The Devil and the Antichrist", from "The Last Judgement", about 1500 A.D., Fresco Cathedral, Orvieto, Italy. By Luca Signorelli. Again note the resemblance to Osama, of the Antichrist in this painting of the devil speaking into the ear of the Antichrist. These works of art again indicate that Osama is "The Destroyer" of Revelation 9:11.
Also, this passage in Revelation 16 refers to unclean spirits, also called demons, which I think again would be referring to Ossamma bin Laden and th terrorists, since they bring about war:
"16:13: And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14: For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
16: And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."
Also, consider Greek mythology: similar to "Laden" in Osama bin Laden is the evil
dragon Ladon, which was at the entrance to the great garden of Hesperides,
which was where the golden apples were. Hercules killed the dragon Ladon
and seized the golden apples. Note golden apple -- New York City. This is sort of like the evil dragon Osama bin Laden attacking the golden apple, New York City.
Note that dragons in mythology live in deep caves, as Osama bin Laden has lived in caves in Afghanistan.
And the Greek Historian Herodotus around 440 B.C. wrote about dragons, that he described as winged snakes with bat-like wings, in Arabia, this being the only place they existed, according to his account. Note that Osama bin Laden is from Arabia.
Also another legend of Hercules in Greek mythology that could be relevant here
is the defeat of the Hydra, a large serpent with nine heads, that kept growing a new
head each time Hercules cut one off. I think that this is similar to Osama bin Laden
and his Al Qaeda terrorist organization, that has organizations in several
countries, which would be the nine heads. And now there is ISIS, a similar terrorist organization.
The Hydra was defeated by Hercules,
by his nephew Iolaus burning each of the mortal heads as
Hercules cut them off, and burying the immortal head under a stone. It could
be that Osama bin Laden is the immortal head. Somehow the mythology of the Hydra may be a clue for the U.S.,
each of the nine heads of the Hydra should be burnt and cut off.
Also historically, a second Moslem invasion of Europe was stopped on Oct. 15, 1529, in Vienna. The siege of Vienna Austria by an Ottoman Moslem army ended in their defeat, ending this attempt by the Muslims to invade Europe. This Moslem army was largely defeated by disease and bad weather. And note that shortly after that on Dec. 4, 1532, the
Shroud of Turin, believed to be the burial cloth of Christ, was damaged by a fire in a cathedral in France, near the time of the Protestant Reformation in Europe which was a time of great change for Christianity, and there were three bright comets in three years in 1531-1533. These comets I think represented the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. And note that in our time there been again attacks on the West by Estremist Moslem terrorists, four years after the Shroud of Turin escaped another fire in 1997, and there were 2 bright comets in 1996 and 1997, and another bright comet in January 2007.
As I do elsewhere on this web site, I will consider numbers and Biblically interpret them, to analyze this event. Note that the
geographic coordinates (see more on this page) of Shanksville, Pennsylvania are at 40.01 degrees North. So the plane hit exactly on 40 degrees North. It would be interesting to check this impact point to see if it is precisely at 40 degrees North. The significance of the number 40 in the Bible is great, and it is generally connected with periods of trial and testing, such as 40 days and nights of rain flooding the earth in the time of Noah, and the 40 years of wandering of the people of Israel in the wilderness, and also, Jesus Christ was tempted by Satan in the wilderness for 40 days.
Also consider the time that Flight 93 was scheduled to leave New Jersey, 8:01 A.M. EST. In
Greek, the language of the Bible's New Testament including the Book of Revelation, each letter is also a number. "Alpha" is the number 1, and "Omega" is the number 800, so the Biblical phrase "Alpha and Omega" would be 801. In Revelation 1 there is a statement by Jesus Christ, who has appeared to John, the author of Revelation:
1:8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending"
1:11 "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last"
So "Alpha and Omega" and the number 801 are connected with Christ, and Flight 93 leaving at 8:01 AM EST is a sign that Christ was with the people on that plane that day, and gave the people on the plane the bravery to fight the terrorists, and save the U.S. from a greater disaster.
The "11" Pattern and the World Trade Center Attack
One rumour concerning the World Trade Center attack is the connection to the number 11: the attack was on Sept. 11; 111 days were left in the year; Flight 11 was the first plane to hit; New York was the 11th state to join the union; Afghanistan has 11 letters; the two World Trade Center buildings look like an "11"; etc.. This is generally considered to be just coincidence, but let us consider Revelation 11:
Revelation 11 (King James version):
"11:1: And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and
the altar, and them that worship therein.
2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city
shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth.
4: These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt
them, he must in this manner be killed.
6: These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them
to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7: And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war
against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8: And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our
Lord was crucified.
9: And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and
shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10: And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because
these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11: And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great
fear fell upon them which saw them.
12: And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a
cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13: And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of
men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14: The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15: And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become
the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17: Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to
thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou
shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and
shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
19: And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were
lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."
In Revelation 11 above, could the two witnesses, who are two prophets, be represented by the twin towers of the World Trade Center? And the Holy City is Jerusalem, but New York City has been referred to as the New Jerusalem; it has
two great cathedrals, St. Patrick's cathedral, which is Catholic, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the second largest church in the world, which is a cathedral dedicated to John (and which is at 110th street, 110=11x10), the author of the Book of Revelation. (And on December 18, 2001 there was a fire in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, note that this date was when the U.S. was achieving victory in Afghanistan, and 4 days after a solar eclipse). Notice that in Revelation 11 it says a tenth part of the city fell in a great earthquake, and 7000 died, within a few thousand of the number who died in the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S.. Also note
that in 11:7 the beast from the bottomless pit (which I connected with Osama bin Laden in Revelation 9:11) attacks the two witnesses. Notice the image of 11:4: "These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth", the "two candlesticks" being the World Trade Center towers.
So perhaps the "11" pattern is telling us to look at Revelation 11. Also, note that I have quoted Revelation 9 and 11 as the relevant sections of Revelation, and the attack date was 9:11. And note that the World Trade Center towers had 110 floors = 11x10 . Also note that recent previous
plane crashes out of JFK Airport, New York City somehow relate to this number pattern:
--TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996, crashed when going to Paris, and Swissair Flight 111 on Sept. 2, 1998, crashed off Nova Scotia; note that if you add these flight numbers: 800+111=911 (September 11 again).
--Egyptair Flight 990 crashed off Nantucket on Oct. 31, 1999, Halloween: note that
990=110x9, the World Trade Center having 110 floors, and there you have 9 and 11 again.
Also, in Revelation 1 there is a reference to the "seven candlesticks", which could be the seven World Trade Center buildings, another indication that New York City is the New Jerusalem. And Christ is there among the seven candlesticks. This is a vision of the future seen by John, the author of Revelation, two thousand years ago on the Greek island of Patmos. So John saw that the seven towers of the World Trade Center, the seven candlesticks, would be built in the city of the New Jerusalem, New York City; and he also saw that two of the candlesticks would be destroyed by the beast from the bottomless pit; but I think he also says that the World Trade Center will rise again one day in New York City. This is part of New York City's great destiny as the New Jerusalem. Revelation 1:9-13:
"1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man..."
Some New York City photos, showing the September 11 Attack damage:
Above: the city skyline before September 11
Above: the city skyline in November 2001
Above: the damage near the World Trade Center streches several blocks over to the the Fulton Street subway stop, where this photo was taken in November 2001.
Above: when I took these 2 above photos in New York City in November 2001, I also saw this beautiful view of sunbeams coming out of the clouds, with the Statue of Liberty in the distance. I saw this as a sign of hope.
This page has pictures of Saint Paul's Chapel, near the World Trade Center Ground Zero, which miraculously escaped damage from September 11, although buildings near it were damaged. And amazingly, this church was built before the Revolutionary War, and George Washington when he was President attended services at this church. This brings to mind a quote from Jesus to Peter, the builder of the Christian Church, in Matthew 16:18 (King James Version):
"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
