The Beast of the Sea

1 ¶ (12-18) And he stood upon the sand of the sea. (13-1) And I saw a beast [1] coming up out the sea, having seven heads and ten horns: and upon his horns, ten diadems: and upon his heads, names of blasphemy. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 11:7!; Dan.: 7:3; Rev.: 12:3; 17:3
2 And the beast which I saw was like to a leopard: and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength and great power. … Scripture reference –
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death’s wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13:12; 17:8
4 And they adored the dragon which gave power to the beast. And they adored the beast, saying: Who is like to the beast? And who shall be able to fight with him? … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13:12; 17:8
5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies: and power was given to him to do, two and forty months.
6 And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 11:7!; 12:17
8 And all that dwell upon the earth adored him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb which was slain from the beginning of the world. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 17:8; 20:15!; 21:27; Ps.: 68:29!; Rev.: 14:12
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 2:7!
10 He that shall lead into captivity shall go into captivity: he that shall kill by the sword must be killed by the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. [2] … Scripture reference – Jer.: 43:11; Mt.: 26:52; Rev.: 14:12

The Beast of the Earth

11 ¶ And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns, like a lamb: and he spoke as a dragon.
12 And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight. And he caused the earth and them that dwell therein to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13: 3,4
13 And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth, in the sight of men.
14 And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs which were given him to do in the sight of the beast: saying to them that dwell on the earth that they should make the image of the beast which had the wound by the sword and lived.
15 And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain.
16 And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character [3] in their right hand or on their foreheads: … Scripture reference – Rev.: 14:9; 20:4
17 And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 14:11!
18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six. {See this link - 666 -} [4] … Scripture reference – Rev.: 17:9

[1] -Ver. 1. The picture of the first beast is based on the seventh chapter of Daniel. This beast is the figure of the kingdoms of the world, kingdoms founded on passion and
selfishness, which in every age are antagonistic to Christ and seek to oppress the ,servants of God. Imperial Rome represents this power.
[2] -Ver. 10. The weapons of the saints are faith and patience; they must accept sufferings and persecution as Christ did His cross.
[3] -Ver. 16. Character (mark): as slaves received a brand or a mark in their flesh, indicating to whom they belonged, so in the spiritual conflict there is on the side of good and of evil a
brand or mark. St. Paul spoke of such marks in his own body that proved him a slave of Jesus Christ [Gal. 6, 17]. So the false prophet seeks to, impress a mark on all. What this mark is will be manifested in its time.
[4] -Ver. 18. Six hundred and sixty-six: the original type of the number is that it represents the name Caesar Neron, which in Hebrew characters make up the number 666. (Hebrew words read right to left) — Hebrew letters for Kaiser (Caesar) Neron (Nero) = nrwn ksr = (Hebrew in parentheses) 100 (Kop)+ 60 (Samek)+ 200 (Res)+ 50 (Nun)+ 200 (Res)+ 6 (Waw)+ 50 (Nun) = 666. {Additional source for nrwn ksr and each numeric equivalent: The Anchor Bible Dictionary volume IV – page 1145.} The final Gematria/Isosephia alpha-numeric name is known to God. It symbolizes extreme imperfection, for each digit is one short of seven, the number that signifies perfection; it tells us, as the Church Fathers and Doctors all agree, prophetically, of the name the Antichrist will bear. The Fathers concur emphatically that the number is 666 and not 616 as some corrupt manuscripts mistakenly read.

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth; because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. 

Nuclear weapon carrying submarines for "Israel" is just like the Devil "...a murderer from the beginning...."

Germany: Submarines for Israel - Neglect for Lindau

Lindau. Pic. Credit: Kawther Salam
In visited the German City of Lindau on July 9 2012. I spent several days in this beautiful city on an island in Lake Constance (Bodensee) after leaving nearby Feldkirch in Austria. Lindau is a unique jewel of traditional architecture in southern Germany. All the area, Vorarlberg in Austria and also nearby Liechtenstein have many beautiful houses which date from many hundreds of years, but only Lindau is known to consist almost completely of houses conserved since medieval times, and this even in all of Germany.
I was surprised that, while talking to some Germans in Lindau, they would express their dissatisfaction not only with the economic situation but also with the German government’s negligence towards the city and the lack of interest on side of local and federal authorities about the proper conservation and restoration of the architecture jewels in this old city. It surprised me that virtual strangers would confide such things to me, a mere tourist, in the course of casual conversations. The problem is that there are apparent differences between the infrastructure of Germany and Austria, which appears far better maintained until now. Note: Click pictures to enlarge.
What must be mentioned when Germans complain about their authorities, the excessive taxes in the country and the pointed neglect of business and infrastructure by authorities is that the German government has been very busy during the last decades squandering the economic base and throwing the money of the country out of the window shovel-wise – that much must be clear to anybody who has followed news with minimal attention.
Among the more disgraceful “accomplishments” of the German regime during the last decade was to gift Israel with 6 submarines which have been re-equipped to carry nuclear weapons. The issue was object of a short, laudatory “controversy” in the German media earlier this year, in which it was stated that the “only 4” submarines cost “only” about 200 million Euro each. Outside Germany this disgraceful issue has been known for many years, and the prices mentioned are of about 500 Million Euro each. Apart from the moral decrepitude of the German regime, which is below contempt, what is interesting is that this gift happened during a time when the German population was subjected to increasing economic hardships, increasing taxes and creeping fascism.
While any German who expresses political views which are not of the liking of the regime risks being labelled a “right-extremist” or a “Neonazi”, the government loads the taxpayers with billions of Euros of costs for submarines capable of launching nuclear ICBMs being gifted to a terrorist and criminal organization posing as a state and which exhibits all the attributes of the evil NS-regime. At the same time infrastructure and historic jewels like Lindau slowly degrades because there is no money for its maintenance because the government has other, more important, interests.

This is apparent, for example, at the light tower in the harbour, which appears in postcards. From far away it is beautiful, but close-up and inside the building look in disrepair, having creaky stairs and filled with the graffiti and filth of a decade or more of heavy use by tourists.
Similar observations can be made for the railways of Germany. In Lindau, a touristic destination where room prices easily go over 100 EUR/night, the train station looks like it had not been overhauled since WW2 and most trains could easily have been leftovers bought from the Soviet Union. The contrast could not be greater to the rail systems of Austria and Switzerland. The Swiss trains look crisp and well-maintained, and in Austria most railway stations have been overhauled or rebuilt and a whole new generation of locomotives and wagons has been deployed during the last decade – it should be noted that traditionally these three countries have held great pride in having well-functioning and dependable railway systems which have also served as the backbone of these economies for the last century or so.
All the while Chancellor Angela Merkel, who apparently has better things to do than to care for the crumbling infrastructure of the very people and country who pay her extravagant salary, hangs out with the wheeled German minister of finances and her buddies from international high finance and signs away the German economy and indebts Germany to the tune of 100 Billion Euros “to save Spain” to be handed over the bankster cartels who have ruined the economies of the countries in the EU.
From Lindau I moved by train between the cities and villages of the region, spending my time looking at the architectural landmarks of ancient and modern, admiring the beauty of the landscape and the architecture. I walked between the fields and climbed mountains. I saw and enjoyed the beauty of the nature, the trickling water, the roar of thunderstorms and the rustle of leaves moved by summer breeze. I admired greatness of the tops of high mountains, the black and white clouds hugging valleys and dispersing in the beautiful scenery of natural art which can not be described in words and lines.
The shining flecks of white snow still littered the tops of the Alps, talking to the natural green of summer and defying the sun, flirting with the black and white clouds and sternly facing the hail of storms and thunder and rain.
The train was passing between mountains and high plains in the middle of the green forests and alpine pastures. From the window of the train I saw what scenes which I would never be able to see from the windows of an airplane. I saw picturesque lakes, running streams, beautiful homes surrounded by flowering roses. I saw a small cave and hay bales on fields waiting to be stored for the coming winter, I saw birds flying, cows and sheep grazing in the green pastures on the slopes of the mountains between woods.
During travel by train I listened to detailed explanation about many towns and places by my husband, who explained me the meanings of the names of the places we passed. Sometimes I laughed from my heart, and sometimes I listened with great attention and eagerness to his explanation. I laughed when he jokingly explained me the meaning of “Sulz” (
When the train stopped in Rankweil, my husband told me: “From here comes the apple and orange juice which we drink. The products of Rauch in Rankweil are distributed in many countries throughout Europe and even in Arab countries”. Actually, Rauch is only one of many very successful companies delivering high-quality products which are established in the Austrian upper Rhine valley. The whole region, along with the Swiss side of the Rhine valley and Liechtenstein, is populated with high-tech companies, many of which are world-wide success stories and often enough leaders in their industry segment.
I stopped at Rankweil to visit Rauch factory some hundred meters from the station, where I was met by a friendly lady who gave me a product flyer. I took some pictures of this nice city and followed on my way to Bludenz.
I laughed about the funny accent of the announcer in the Liechtenstein bus, but this was actually cheerful laughing. After having been able to look at this corner of the world for a week, my impression is that these people, Swiss, Germans, Austrians, have built up an incredible success story with a combination of hard work, sticking to their traditions and respecting their heritage, using what they have with measure, and limiting external influence to an acceptable measure.
In Germany, the stark contrast between the lovingly kept private houses and businesses and the decaying public sector infrastructure can be attributed to a government which has left its people standing in the rain.
When I compare the area to my native Palestine, I see in Vorarlberg the same farmer mentality of the villages around Hebron, and I think that the Palestinians could have built our own success story if we hadn’t been abused and pestered every hour of the day for the past 70 years by the zionist occupation and betrayed by the PA, all under the connivance of most UN members.
I wish all these beautiful people only the best, that their success may continue and that industrialisation may continue being respectful of their heritage and traditions. I equally hope that Palestine may soon be ridden of the occupiers and those who collaborate with them.
Vorarlberg is the westernmost federal-state (Land) of Austria. Although it is the second smallest in terms of area (Vienna is the smallest) and population (Burgenland is less populated), it borders three countries: Germany (Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg via Lake Constance), Switzerland (Graubünden and St. Gallen) and Liechtenstein. The only Austrian federal state that shares a border with Vorarlberg is Tyrol to the east.
The capital of Vorarlberg is Bregenz (28,000 inhabitants), although Dornbirn (45,000 inhabitants) and Feldkirch (30,000 inhabitants) are larger cities in terms of population. Vorarlberg is also distinct in that it is the only province in Austria that does not speak an Austro-Bavarian, but rather an Alemannic dialect; it therefore culturally has much more in common with its Alemannic-speaking neighbors Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Swabia than with Bavaria and the rest of Austria.

The New modern secular Janisserries - Sayanim of all sorts.

A short abbreviated list of persecutions endured by Christians in the last 1,000 years:

Due to persecution, Christians were martyrs under 11th century Egypt-Syria 12th century Almohad 13th century Persia 14th century Tamerlane 15th century Turks 16th 17th century Japan 18th 19th century France 20th 21th century Armenia Russia Palestine Poland Germany China Cuba Sudan India Iraq etc. 

Let it be noted emphatically that Christians follow the example of the Theban Legion and do not reply to this by warfare. The current Anglo-American invasion of the Middle East (including especially all of its militarist and political support for the criminal genocidal racist apartheid murderous robber state of foxes known as "Israel")  is not justified by anything and in particular not by the blood of the martyrs.

See the article on the Janissaries below, the attitude behind which was one of the principle corruptions of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. The Turkish Ottoman empire replaced the Sultanate of Rum. What the Ottoman Empire did to the Christian children was a direct violation of Islamic Qur'anic law which always upheld the protection of Christians from the time of Muhammad and the Ummah (Muslim community - which from the time of Muhammad on has been plagued by the Jews' subversions and instigations and perversions) then and onward. That same attitude in the Ottomans led to the adoption of the vile total Anti-Christian and Anti-Islam absolute Antichrist, Dajjal, Frankist Doenmeh into the heart of the Ottoman Empire's religious life - they imbibed sheer poison - it is also in every way the branch extending from this earlier root:           

Persian heresy in Islam and its power play to implement the Antichrist

Persian cabalistic-Gnostic heresy within Islamic civilization goes back to the time of the Hurufi movement in Persia in the eighth century A.D. from within the Imami. It is the absolute basis of the Ismaeli heresy which has totally corrupted Egypt and Saudia Arabia down to the present. From Persia it spread to Turkey and became the Bektasiyya, who were totally immersed in Jewish Kabbalah. Centuries later Sabbatai Zvi was received there in Turkey by the Persian Shi'ite Muslim Bektasiyya, which predisposed the Sultan of Turkey to receiving and becoming the patron of Sabbatai Zvi. This led to Sabbateanism. The original, and still the core heresy and movement, is Persian-Iranian Shi'ism. It is the basis for ALL Zionism for the last 12 centuries. It is the Sephardic Zionist core and is who entrapped the Khazar Ashkenazim into Talmudic Judaism. When you speak of Iran, you are talking about the absolute basis and rulers of the synagogue who control all of Zionist Israel. There are more Rabbis in Iran than in most Jewish enclaves in the world. 

[Sufism was corrupted every which way by this and the final outgrowth of that was Al Qaeda]

This Persian Jew subversion and murderous intrigue dates from the time of the Persian Empire at the time of the Roman Empire. During the first centuries of the spread of the Gospel from Jerusalem and from there throughout the world - it was the Jews in both the Roman Empire and in the Persian Empire which instigated the ruling classes to unjustly and unlawfully persecute the Christians in each Empire - the Jews also caused the theological divisions between East and West - a pattern which which the Jews continued in their instigation of division between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches during especially the time of Photius a Khazar Jew who was Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople in the 9th century A.D. Today that particular pattern of Photius is seen in the Jews' Kahal-Haburah control over Russia extending from Czarist times through Communist times to presently in their use of Drozdov (meaning "blackbird," KGB-Mossad name of Alexius II, their agent who posed as the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church). The whole "Third Rome" apostasy of the Russian Church was Jew instigated and on purpose. 

Note on the the Jews' Russian Black Mariah/Cheka/NKVD/GPU/KGB/FSB-FSS (Military core GRU directorate) offspring, the Mossad. The Mossad is the child of the Russian Secret Intelligence, it is not the CIA's offspring and not MI5/6's offspring. Both OSS/CIA and MI5/6 are the offspring of Russian Secret Intelligence as well. Russian Secret Intelligence dates back to the Czarist secret service. The Jews' instigators and saboteurs in Russia are the parent of the Russian Secret Intelligence - they were the AIPAC of Czarist Russia. A copy of all of this in Germany was the Prussian secret service which was the base, later, for the Nazi GESTAPO.

The Keraites, Persian Jews in 800 A.D. who surreptitiously invaded the Holy Land then, are not nor have they ever been Moses' Torah only Jews - they have been totally hidden Kabbalistic Satanists the whole time.

This was all planned by the Kahal-Haburah to destroy all of sovereign rule of all nations including the Sultanate of Rum (ended 1300 A.D.) and be the absolute corruption of all of the nations and including Turkish Society. It led to the complete destruction of the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and the rise of an Antichrist, Kemal Mustafa Attaturk, actually a Jew and Freemason and member of the Doenmeh - literally Satanists all. All of it was organized by the Jews, the Haburah - the Kahal. All of this was and is the prime (modern in the sense of the last seven centuries) movement in the North of the Region variously known as the Levant and the Fertile Crescent. The Region is the Holy Land and the surrounding region. To the North is Anatolia. Anatolia (called Asia Minor in the West) is directly and unequivocally the land of Gog (King Gyges originally) and Magog (Lydia at the time of Gyges who was King of Lydia then) – which is exactly the original Biblical Scriptural Reference to the Antichrist, the false ha maschiach of the Jews, the Dajjal, and its nation of antichrists. What the Jews' Kahal-Haburah did was to, via their usurious banking in the West (linked to the Phanar district in Constantinople) and its influence in Venice and the Vatican, instigate an alliance made in hell between the Christian West and the Sephardic Jews' vassal state of Khazaria; that, both the usurious Jew banking and the Khazarian alliance, poisoned forevermore all ecclesiastical hierarchy in the West. 

The recent comment by Putin to not worry about Iran, Israel will take care of Iran, means exactly that, Israel will continue to nurture Iran as its parent in the region.

The Russian Kahal is the direct outgrowth of the Turkish Jews, which from the North, meaning Russia in 1915, came back to collect their investment in Turkey.

The modern versions of Janissaries are people taken captive in their wills by the machinations of the Jews to act as subversive agents in various societies to be used by the Jews to conquer the world for their Antichrist ruler they want to put on a throne in Jerusalem on the temple mount, see: God and His Messiah Jesus Christ our Lord - our right and duty to witness to Him: Sayanim

Janissaries From: The 1911 Classic Encyclopedia – Based on the 11th Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica (pub. 1911)

JANISSARIES (corrupted from Turkish yeni cheri, new troops), an organized military force constituting until 1826 the standing army of the Ottoman empire. At the outset of her history Turkey possessed no standing army. All Moslems capable of bearing arms served as a kind of volunteer yeomanry known as akinjis; they were summoned by public criers, or, if the occasion required it, by secret messengers. It was under Orkhan that a regular paid army was first organized: the soldiers were known as yaya or piyade. The result was unsatisfactory, as the Turcomans, from whom these troops were recruited, were unaccustomed to fight on foot or to submit to military discipline. Accordingly in 1330, on the advice of Chendereli Kara Khalil, the system known as devshurme or forced levy, was adopted, whereby a certain number of Christian youths (at first 1000) were every year taken from their parents and, after undergoing a period of apprenticeship, were enrolled as yeni cheri or new troops. The venerable saint Haji Bektash, founder of the Bektashi dervishes, blessed the corps and promised them victory; he remained ever after the patron saint of the janissaries.
At first the corps was exclusively recruited by the forced levy of Christian children, for which purpose the officer known as tournaji-bashi, or head-keeper of the cranes, made periodical tours in the provinces. The fixed organization of the corps dates only from Mahommed II., and its regulations were subsequently modified by Suleiman I. In early days all Christians were enrolled indiscriminately; later those from Albania, Bosnia and Bulgaria were preferred. The recruits while serving their apprenticeship were instructed in the principles of the faith by khojas, but according to D'Ohsson (vii. 327) they were not obliged to become Moslems.
The entire corps, commanded by the aga of the janissaries, was known as the ojak (hearth); it was divided into ortas or units of varying numbers; the oda (room) was the name given to the barracks in which the janissaries were lodged. There were, after the reorganization of Suleiman I., 196 ortas of three classes, viz. the jemaat, comprising 101 ortas, the beuluk, 61 ortas, and the sekban, or seimen, 34 ortas; to these must be added 34 ortas of ajami or apprentices. The strength of the orta varied greatly, sometimes being as low as loo, sometimes rising considerably beyond its nominal war strength of Soo. The distinction between the different classes seems to have been principally in name; in theory the jemaat, or yaya beiler, were specially charged with the duty of frontier-guards; the beuluks had the privilege of serving as the sultan's guards and of keeping the sacred banner in their custody.
Until the accession of Murad III. (1574) the total effective of the janissaries, including the ajami or apprentices, did not exceed 20,000. In 1582 irregularities in the mode of admission to the ranks began. Soon parents themselves begged to have their children enrolled, so great were the privileges attaching to the corps; later the privilege of enlistment was restricted to the children or relatives of former janissaries; eventually the regulations were much relaxed, and any person was admitted, only negroes being excluded. In 1591 the ojak numbered 48,688 men. Under Ibrahim (1640-1648) it was reduced by Kara Mustafa to 17,000; but it soon rose again, and at the accession of Mahommed IV. (1648), the accession-bakshish was distributed to 50,000 Janissaries. During the war of1683-1698the rules for admission were suspended, 30,000 recruits being received at one time, and the effective of the corps rising to 70,000; about 1805 it numbered more than 112,000; it went on increasing until the destruction of the janissaries, when it reached 135,000. It would perhaps be more correct to say that these are the numbers figuring on the pay-sheets, and that they doubtless largely exceed the total of the men actually serving in the ranks.
Promotion to the rank of warrant officer was obtained by long or distinguished service; it was by seniority up to the rank of odabashi, but odabashis were promoted to the rank of chorbaji (commander of an orta) solely by selection. Janissaries advanced in their own orta, which they left only to assume the command of another. Ortas remained permanently stationed in the fortress towns in which they were in garrison, being displaced in time of peace only when some violent animosity broke out between two companies. There were usually 12 in garrison at Belgrade, 14 at Khotin, 16 at Widdin, 20 at Bagdad, &c. The commander was frequently changed. A new chorbaji was usually appointed to the command of an orta stationed at a frontier post; he was then transferred elsewhere, so that in course of time he passed through different provinces.
In time of peace the janissary received no pay. At first his war pay was limited to one aspre per diem, but it was eventually raised to a minimum of three aspres, while veterans received as much as 29 aspres, and retired officers from 30 to 120. The aga received 24,000 piastres per annum; the ordinary pay of a commander was 120 aspres per diem. The aga and several of his subordinates received a percentage of the pay and allowance of the troops; they also inherited the property of deceased janissaries. Moreover, the officers profited largely by retaining the names of dead or fictitious janissaries on the pay-rolls. Rations of mutton, bread and candles were furnished by the government, the supply of ricebutter and vegetables being at the charge of the commandant. The rations would have been entirely inadequate if the janissaries had not been allowed, contrary to the regulations, to pursue different callings, such as those of baker, butcher, glazier, boatman, &c. At first the janissaries bore no other distinctive mark save the white felt cap. Soon the red cap with gold embroidery was substituted. Later a uniform was introduced, of which the distinctive mark was less the colour than the cut of the coat and the shape of the head-dress and turban. The only distinction in the costume of commanding officers was in the colour of their boots, those of the beuluks being red while the others were yellow; subordinate officers wore black boots.
The fundamental laws of the janissaries, which were very early infringed, were as follows: implicit obedience to their officers; perfect accord and union among themselves; abstinence from luxury, extravagance and practices unseemly for a soldier and a brave man; observance of the rules of Haji Bektash and of the religious law; exclusion from the ranks of all save those properly levied; special rules for the infliction of the death penalty; promotion to be by seniority; janissaries to be admonished or punished by their own officers only; the infirm and unfit to be pensioned; janissaries were not to let their beards grow, not to marry, nor to leave their barracks, nor to engage in trade; but were to spend their time in drill and in practising the arts of war.
In time of peace the state supplied no arms, and the janissaries on service in the capital were armed only with clubs; they were forbidden to carry any arm save a cutlass, the only exception being at the frontier-posts. In time of war the janissaries provided their own arms, and these might be any which took their fancy. However, they were induced by rivalry to procure the best obtainable and to keep them in perfect order. The banner of the janissaries was of white silk on which verses from the Koran were embroidered in gold. This banner was planted beside the aga's tent in camp, with four other flags in red cases, and his three horse-tails. Each orta had its flag, half-red and half-yellow, placed before the tent of its commander. Each orta had two or three great caldrons used for boiling the soup and pilaw; these were under the guard of subordinate officers. A particular superstition attached to them: if they were lost in battle all the officers were disgraced, and the orta was no longer allowed to parade with its caldrons in public ceremonies. The janissaries were stationed in most of the guard-houses of Constantinople and other large towns. No sentries were on duty, but rounds were sent out two or three times a day. It was customary for the sultan or the grand vizier to bestow largess on an orta which they might visit.
The janissaries conducted themselves with extreme violence and brutality towards civilians. They extorted money from them on every possible pretext: thus, it was their duty to sweep the streets in the immediate vicinity of their barracks, but they forced the civilians, especially if rayas, to perform this task or to pay a bribe. They were themselves subject to severe corporal punishments; if these were to take place publicly the ojak was first asked for its consent.
At first a source of strength to Turkey as being the only wellorganized and disciplined force in the country, the janissaries soon became its bane, thanks to their lawlessness and exactions. One frequent means of exhibiting their discontent was to set fire to Constantinople; 140 such fires are said to have been caused during the 28 years of Ahmed III.'s reign. The janissaries were at all times distinguished for their want of respect towards the sultans; their outbreaks were never due to a real desire for reforms of abuses or of misgovernment, but were solely caused to obtain the downfall of some obnoxious minister.
The first recorded revolt of the janissaries is in 1443, on the occasion of the second accession of Mahommed II., when they broke into rebellion at Adrianople. A similar revolt happened at his death, when Bayazid II. was forced to yield to their demands and thus the custom of the accession-bakshish was established; at the end of his reign it was the janissaries who forced Bayazid to summon Prince Selim and to hand over the reins of power to him. During the Persian campaign of Selim I. they mutinied more than once. Under Osman II. their disorders reached their greatest height and led to the dethronement and murder of the sultan. It would be tedious to recall all their acts of insubordination. Throughout Turkish history they were made use of as instruments by unscrupulous and ambitious statesmen, and in the 17th century they had become a praetorian guard in the worst sense of the word. Sultan Selim III. in despair endeavoured to organize a properly drilled and disciplined force, under the name of nizam-i jedid, to take their place; for some time the janissaries regarded this attempt in sullen silence; a curious detail is that Napoleon's ambassador Sebastiani strongly dissuaded the sultan from taking this step. Again serving as tools, the janissaries dethroned Selim III. and obtained the abolition of the nizam-i-jedid. But after the successful revolution of BairakdarPasha of Widdin the new troops were reestablished and drilled: the resentment of the janissaries rose to such a height that they attacked the grand vizier's house, and after destroying it marched against the sultan's palace. They were repulsed by cannon, losing 600 men in the affair (1806). But such was the excitement and alarm caused at Constantinople that the nizam-i-jedid, or sekbans as they were now called, had to be suppressed. During the next 20 years the misdeeds and turbulence of the janissaries knew no bounds. Sultan Mahmud II., powerfully impressed by their violence and lawlessness at his accession, and with the example of Mehemet Ali's method of suppressing the Mamlukes before his eyes, determined to rid the state of this scourge; long biding his time, in 1825 he decided to form a corps of regular drilled troops known as eshkenjis. Afetva was obtained from the Sheikh-ul-Islam to the effect that it was the duty of Moslems to acquire military science. The imperial decree announcing the formation of the new troops was promulgated at a grand council, and the high dignitaries present (including certain of the principal officers of the janissaries who concurred) undertook to comply with its provisions. But the janissaries rose in revolt, and on the 10th of June 1826, began to collect on the Et Meidan square at Constantinople; at mid-. night they attacked the house of the aga of janissaries, and, finding he had made good his escape, proceeded to overturn the caldrons of as many ortas as they could find, thus forcing the troops of those ortas to join the insurrection. Then they pillaged and robbed throughout the town. Meanwhile the government was collecting its forces; the ulema, consulted by the sultan, gave the following fetva: "If unjust and violent men attack their brethren, fight against the aggressors and send them before their natural judge !" On this the sacred standard of the prophet was unfurled, and war was formally declared against these disturbers of order. Cannon were brought against the Et Meidan, which was surrounded by troops. Ibrahim Aga, known as Kara Jehennum, the commander of the artillery, made a last appeal to the janissaries to surrender; they refused, and fire was opened upon them. Such as escaped were shot down as they fled; the barracks where many found refuge were burnt; those who were taken prisoner were brought before the grand vizier and hanged. Before many days were over the corps had ceased to exist, and the janissaries, the glory of Turkey's early days and the scourge of the country for the last two centuries, had passed for ever from the page of her history.

The Final Trial of the evil onslaught is upon us which began with the destruction of the Apostate Temple of the Jews in 70 A.D. and will increase until the end of this age - only God knows when that will be.

The Final Trial of the evil onslaught is upon us which began with the destruction of the Apostate Temple of the Jews in 70 A.D. and will increase until the end of this age - only God knows when that will be.

The Final Trial: The Apocalypse, the Book of the Revelation reveals the exact truth of what will come to pass.

Commodianus reveals the deception by Satan of the two Antichrists

The Final Trial: WHO IS DAJJAL? - trys to understand from the Hadiths of Muslim belief.

Parousia of Jesus Christ Our Lord: January 2010 discussses one example of two Antichrists by Satan to confuse people.

When ye therefore shall see 
The Abomination of Desolation 

spoken of by Daniel the prophet ... whoso readeth, let him understand. (Matt 24:15)

Throughout the series, I tried to present as much as possible the complete sayings of the Fathers concerning Antichrist and the end of the world. I have however, omitted some sayings because they were against the Biblical facts. As an example, are the medieval “prophecies” that spoke of Antichrist as a horrible person, who will kill the Pope of 
Rome and usurp the papacy. They claim that when the elect cry to God for help, God will respond by sending into the world a righteous king (invariably called “The Great Monarch”), who will rid the world of the tyrant and institute a reign of peace and prosperity in the world. It is obvious that this is unbiblical, since St. Paul tells us that it is the Lord that will “consume [him] with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy [him] with the brightness of his coming.” (II Thes 2:8) Daniel 8:25 and Revelation 19:20-21 confirm this.  
Why then did Satan propagate these false “prophecies”? Here is the scenario that I imagine. Satan knows that Christians expect Antichrist to come first, then Christ comes. So, he sends a false Antichrist, allows him to do some mischief in the world, and after a while, lo and behold, a knight in shining armour comes to rescue the world from the bad Antichrist. And, guess who is the knight in shining armour? He is the real Antichrist. It seems too complicated a scenario, but one really worthy of the Father of lies.

Remember the magnet analogy. Curb your curiosity and “remember Lot’s wife.”  
“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.” (Isa 26:20)

That magnet analogy particularly applies to ALL "New Age" vain and profane babblings:

 {Elijah and Enoch, God's holy prophets He appoints to witness at the end of this age}
