Part 13

Isaiah therefore says that the end of time will be marked by destruction of Babylon (Iraq) and the return of terrible giants (Nephilim) when God commands a "ruler" to "open the gates," releasing giants to fulfill His wrath.

What God did in Egypt when "He cast upon them the fierceness of His anger... by sending evil angels among them" (Ps. 78:49), He will do again. Yet Isaiah’s prophecy is additionally fascinating given that Nimrod, the designer of the Tower of Babel--the "gate of the Gods"--was himself a nephilim [gibborim] (see 1 Ch 1:10). 

In Cydonia - The Secret Chronicles of Mars, David E. Flynn takes this a step further, connecting Nimrod’s construction of the Tower of Babel to the rebel planet Mars:

Nimrod.... a giant of the race of Nephilim... authored the plan for the tower.... [and was] associated in myth with Nergal, the Babylonian God of Mars... The Tower of Babel was a tower to Mars. [emphasis added]

Earlier in his astonishing book, Flynn points out,

Symbolism used by the mystery schools illuminated the writings of Italian poet Dante, who [also] wrote of the connections between the Tower of Babel, Giants and Mars.

Intriguingly, Dante identified Mars with Satan.

Paradiso Canto IX:127-142:

Florence, the city founded by Mars, that Satan who first turned his back on his Maker, and from whose envy such great grief has come, coins and spreads that accursed lily flower, that has sent the sheep and lambs astray, since it has made a wolf of the shepherd.

The ancient Cabiri (Gibborim) who built Cyclopean walls and megalithic fortresses took many forms, but they all originated from the same place.

They came down from heaven to the earth. According to ancient Sumerian myth, when Nergal the God of Mars was ejected from heaven he descended with... demons...

Thus not only was Nimrod a Nephilim... not only did he design the Tower of Babel ("gate of the Gods")... not only was he associated with Mars and built the tower of Babel to the rebel prison planet... but he, like other giants, was daimonic (demonic) in origin. The significance of this cannot be overlooked.

Babel was a Nephilim gateway and it is prophesied to be the future location from which "gates" open and "giants" return.


Did God Mean What He Said?

In Genesis 11 the story of the tower of Babel is told. The builders wanted to create a structure "...whose top may reach unto heaven (shaw-mah’-yim)." When the Lord came down and saw what was happening, He said, "...nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."

This comment seems curious if the meaning here is only that the tower would reach into the "sky". Structures had been built around the world since the dawn of time extending significantly upward. Yet as far as I know, none of them created a response from God, saying, "...nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."

Josephus points out that the Tower of Babel was being made waterproof and that this was an act of rebellion against God, defying Him for sending the Flood and preparing for survival of future acts of punishment should they come.

Yet what if another meaning here--which they have imagined to do--fits more perfectly with Scripture and history? Something that has to do with the physicality of Heaven--as in the dwelling place of angels--and/or the peripheral nearness of The Ahriman Gate?

Keep in mind that, like the Bible often has, I am drawing finite abstractions for human comprehension with these questions: How close to the surface of the earth is the dwelling place of angels? Of demons? Of God?

I ask this because we tend to place the physical (for want of a better term) location of these domains far out into space. Yet what if they are so close as to have been reached upon tall mountains? The Nephilim had intimate knowledge of the original earth before the Heavens were closed-up (and before God no longer walked with man in the cool of the evening).

Did the Nephilim--as offspring of fallen angels--know something about the periphery of Kosmos and/or the throne room of God that we don’t?

That in some way these locations are just above our heads? Is this why Holy people throughout time have felt subconsciously driven to ascend mountains in search of God?

Is this why scriptural and extra-biblical literature universally depict metaphors of Heaven attained upon elevated platforms--Jacob’s ladder, Quetzalcoatl’s ladder, the Gods upon the Mount of Olympus, the feet of the returning Christ upon the Mount of Olives, Moses receiving the Law from God upon Sinai, the Watchers descending upon Mount Hermon?

On the one hand such ideas could bring comfort to some, to conceptualize God and His angels as always in such close "physical" proximity. Yet on the other hand the same notion brings significance to the prophecies of Isaiah regarding earthly Babel-gates opening at the end of time during a period of war in Iraq when, according to the prophet, the earth will be invaded by destructive, returning Nephilim.

Are beings even now pressing against "brass gates" of Kosmos, anticipating God’s command for a "ruler" to open these gates?

Jamieson, Fausset, Brown say of Isaiah’s prophecy: 

"Reference to the deliverance by Messiah often breaks out from amidst the local and temporary details of the deliverance from Babylon, as the great ultimate end of the prophecy."

In other words, the law of double reference applies to Isaiah’s words --"as above, so below" and "what was, shall be". Babylon (Iraq) is therefore a "geographical location" or fixed place on earth where Nephilim ("Gods") did, perhaps are, and will in the future traverse gateways.


When Daniel Fought The Gatekeeper

In the tenth chapter of Daniel the story unfolds of the prophet praying for twenty-one days before the angel Gabriel appears to say that "...from the first day thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, they words were heard, and I am come for thy words" (Dan. 10:12).

Why did it take Gabriel twenty-one days to arrive? A powerful Persian demon had opposed him, and not until Michael, the archangel, came to help was Gabriel free to continue his journey.

In Persian theology this opposing spirit would have been identified as Ahriman. In the Book of Daniel he is simply called "the prince of the kingdom of Persia" (Iraq/Iran). He was the Babel gatekeeper, as fictionalized in our book--The Ahriman Gate

God also revealed to Daniel (chapter 7) other types of earthly "kingdom" influences: the Babylonian, the Medo-Persian, the Greek, and the Roman, each of which was a mere human agency under the control of supernatural powers. The principality of the Medo-Persian kingdom was depicted as a warmongering spirit seeking to dominate through military aggression, while its predecessor Babylonia was characterized by "forces" pretending to the throne of God.

Throughout the Bible, spiritual Babylon is equivalent to the world system that is at enmity with God.

Babylon began at the Tower of Babel, where at the macro level Satan’s strategy to incarnate a one-world system was first attempted. It now appears that it will end as the world hurdles toward a final climactic encounter with giants... and their "ruler". 


Forerunner of the Giants?

Preceding Daniel’s visit by Gabriel, a dream from Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, gave Daniel insight concerning these kingdoms and a final "revived" empire that will ultimately provide the grand entry for the mother (or should we say father?!) of all Nephilim--the Antichrist of End Times prophecy.

Daniel’s divine prediction is amazing in light of the extraordinary references made in chapter 2:

"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay" (Dan. 2:43).

The personal pronoun, they "shall mingle themselves with the seed of men..." caused Missler and Eastman in their book Alien Encounters to ask appropriately:

"Just what (or who) are ’mingling with the seed of men?’ Who are these Non-seed? It staggers the mind to contemplate the potential significance of Daniel’s passage and its implications for the future global governance."

Daniel’s prophecy, coupled with Genesis chapter 3, provides an incredible tenet--that Satan has seed, and it is at enmity with Christ! 

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel" (Gen. 3:15).

The word translated here as "seed" is the Hebrew word zera, which means "offspring, descendants, children." 

Is Satan’s "posterity" lurking behind gates, waiting for a final opportunity to mingle themselves with human DNA, as they did in days of old? Is this the method by which the Nephilim will return?

Is this, as noted earlier in this series concerning demoniality, the method by which Antichrist himself will be incarnated?

If Genesis 6 is truly an account of rebel angels leaving their assigned habitation and cohabiting with human females--out of which union mutant life forms were born--is it reasonable to assume that Satan, as a fallen angel, already has or will be allowed the ability to copulate with a woman?

The Ahriman Gate says,

"That’s correct. According to the Bible, the Antichrist will be ‘the son of perdition,’ the male progeny of the Greek apoleia, or Apollyon. The implication couldn’t be clearer—the Man of Sin will be the physical offspring of the destroyer demon, a transgenic of the highest order."


The Father of Nephilim and the Son of Perdition

Some people believe that in the very near future a man of superior intelligence, wit, charm, and diplomacy will descend from the clouds or otherwise emerge on the world scene as a savior.

He will seemingly possess a transcendent wisdom that enables him to solve problems and offer solutions to many of today’s most perplexing issues. His popularity will be widespread, and his fans will include young and old, religious and non-religious, male and female.

Talk show hosts will interview his colleagues, news anchors will cover his movements, scholars will applaud his uncanny ability at resolving what has escaped the rest of us, and the poor will bow down at his table. He will, in every human way, appeal to the best idea of society.

But his profound comprehension and irresistible presence will be the result of an invisible network of thousands of years of collective knowledge. He will represent the embodiment of a very old and super-intelligent spirit.

As Jesus Christ was the "seed of the woman" (Gen. 3:15), he will be the "seed of the serpent." Although his arrival in the form of a man was foretold by numerous Scriptures, the broad masses of the world will not recognize him as the ultimate transgenic incarnation—the "beast" of Revelation 13:1.

It’s been assumed for centuries that a prerequisite for the coming of Antichrist would be the "revived" world order of Daniel’s prophecy—an umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve, and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world, orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty.

Such a system will supposedly be free of religious and political extremes, and membership will tolerate the philosophical and cultural differences of its constituents.

Except for minor nonconformity, war, intolerance, and hunger will be a thing of the past.

At the head of the utopian administration, a single personality will surface. He will appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become "a king of fierce countenance" (Dan. 8:23).

With imperious decree he will facilitate a one-world government, a universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed, until at last he exalts himself "above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2 Thess. 2:4).

For many years the idea that such an "Orwellian" society would arise—where a one-world government oversees the smallest details of our lives and where human liberties are abandoned—was considered anathema.

The concept that rugged individualism could be sacrificed for an anesthetized universal harmony was repudiated by America’s greatest minds. Then, in the 1970’s, things began to change.

Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a "new world order," presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, "We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics."

Evidently he struck a chord with world leaders. During the 1980’s President George Bush Sr. continued the one-world dirge by announcing over national television that "a new world order" had arrived.

Following the initial broadcast, President Bush addressed the Congress and made the additional comment:

What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea—a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children’s future!

Ever since the President’s astonishing newscast, a parade of political and religious leaders have discharged a profusion of rhetoric aimed at implementing the goals of the New World Order.

Al Gore, in his book Earth In the Balance, wrote:

"...we must all become partners in a bold effort to change the very foundation of our civilization." 

The director of the United Nations World Health Organization back then, Brock Chisolm, announced: 

"To achieve world government, it [will be] necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism...."

And finally New Age guru Benjamin Creme hit the nail on the head by admitting: 

"What is the plan? It includes the installation of a new world government and a new world religion under Maitreia." (Maitreia is the New Age "messiah".)

Concurrent with the political aspects of this New World Order is the syncretistic and spiritual goals of both New Agers and Dominionists.

The blending of politics and spirituality, such as occurs in these movements, harmonizes perfectly with the ideas of an end-time marriage of government policy and religious creed as was prophesied in the Bible. To that end, the tools necessary for paganism’s ultimate incarnation—the God-king of the Great Tribulation (Satan in flesh)—are in place.

The "Gods" have been revived through modern mysticism.

The pagan agenda of governing by "divine representation" is being constructed. The governments of the world are uniting beneath a one-world banner, and the earth’s masses stand at the brink of a decisive moment in time.

According to some Christians, this is the unfolding of an ancient scheme. At the core of the conspiracy a leader of indescribable brutality is scheduled to appear.

He will make the combined depravities of Antiochus Epiphenes, Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan, all of whom were types of the antichrist, look like Pee Wee Herman’s Playhouse.

He will raise his fist,

"speaking great blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven" (Rev. 13:5-6).

As he champions worship of the Gods who comes through portals, he will cause "that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed" (Rev. 13:15). "The King of Babylon," as he is called in Isaiah 14, will revive the Babylonian mystery religion--"the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" where merchants of the earth trade in "souls of men" and where "the blood of prophets, and of saints" is found (Rev. 18:2; 13; 24).

The book of Revelation details what follows culminating in cataclysmic war called Armageddon, a time during which God Almighty judges the "Gods" who come through portals, including, we would assume, Zeus, Apollo, Demeter, Isis, and others.

"The Lord will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the Gods of the earth" (Zeph. 2:11)

"The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saith; Behold, I will punish the...Gods" (Jer. 46:25).

Yahweh will also punish the leader of the Gods—"that old serpent, called the Devil," and his human followers. In Isaiah we read,

"Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish Leviathan the piercing serpent, even Leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea" (Is. 26:20-27:1).

However futile, the Gods will retaliate, and a war of indescribable intensity will occur. It will be fought on land and sea, in the heavens above, and in the earth below, in the physical and spiritual worlds.

It will include "Michael and his angels [fighting] against the dragon; and the dragon [fighting] and his angels" (Rev. 12:7). Some humans will join the battle against God, calling on "idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood" (Rev. 9:20) to convene their power against the Christian God, even uniting with "unclean spirits like frogs.... the spirits of devils [the frog Goddesses Heka?] working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth... to gather them to the battle of that great day....[to] a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon ["Mount Megiddo"]" (Rev. 16:13-14;16).

There, in the valley of Megiddo, the omnipotent Christ will utterly repel the forces of darkness and destroy the New World army. Blood will flow like rivers, and the fowl of the air will "eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth."

Besides Armageddon, battles will be fought in the Valley of Jehoshaphat and in the city of Jerusalem. Yet the battle of Armageddon is the event that culminates the hostility between God Almighty and the lower Gods of the underworld. 

Once before, Satan and his "God" spirits, challenged Yahweh at Megiddo. They lost. On Mount Carmel, overlooking the Valley of Armageddon, the prophets of Baal dared the Hebrew God to answer by fire. He did, and it looks like He will again.

When He does, here is what the Bible says happens:

"And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse [Jesus], and against his army.

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.

These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh....

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away: and there was found no place [to hide].

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works....

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" (Rev.19:19-21; 20:11-12,15).

A different destiny awaits the righteous following the battle of Armageddon:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True [Jesus], and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS....

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and....I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men....

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

And he that sat upon the throne said....I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son [or daughter] (Rev. 19:11-16; 20:1-7).
