There has been a tremendous amount of interest in our short article on Rick Joyner and his experience with the Knights of Malta. The aspect of Paul Cain and his secret meeting with Saddam Hussein is an ongoing story. We all have watched Saddam Hussein stare down the world over and over. He rides each crisis with an increased degree of arrogance and pride. At the same time he is busy building up his strategist nation of Iraq and the ancient city of Babylon. Following is an excerpt from our book, A Palace For The Antichrist, that shows how the Antichrist will be an Assyrian and maybe even an Iraqi.
"The Seat Of The Antichrist"
"The Middle East is the center of the whole earth; Babylon is the seat of Satan; Jerusalem is the spiritual center of the Judeo-Christian revelation and soon to be the seat of Christs kingdom. Iraq is rightly called the Cradle of Civilization because the Garden of Eden was in its southern tip where the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers meet just before entering the Persian Gulf. To look for Satans final activities in any other area than the Middle East is to look in vain and in error.
"It is very important to establish the geographical location for the Antichrists appearance and the Holy Scripture has done so very carefully. Daniels vision of the four wild beasts (Daniel 7:1-28) gives a clear picture of the last four World Empires. All four are seen to appear from the geographical area of the Mediterranean Sea. "Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And the four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another." The scholar G.H. Lang said, "In Hebrew usage the great sea is a proper noun and means invariably the Mediterranean." Every political power in the world is at this moment focusing on the Middle East. It has been utterly confirmed that control of the Middle East is the key to world influence. America and Russia have both positioned for this privilege for many years. Our military might and government are constantly seeking to influence the activities of this region.
"Antichrist To Be An Assyrian
"The Scripture has left no doubt that this beast of a man will be from Assyrian nationality. Three times Isaiah called him by this name, "O, Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation." (Isaiah 10:5). This clearly suggest that he will attack Israel while they are still in unbelief. Isaiah further states: "I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders." (Isaiah 14:25). In this prophecy, Gods prophet declares that the Antichrist/the Assyrian will be broken upon the mountains of Israel which God calls my mountains.
"Now note the third reference, "Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod." (Isaiah 30:27-31).
"The reference places his judgment in the final act of Gods wrath at Armageddon. "His tongue (Jesus Christ) as a devouring fire" is almost the same statement as John the Revelator states: "Out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it he should smite the nations." (Revelations 19:15). The statement, "For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down," suggests the very same reality. "And there shall be a bridle in the jaw of the people causing them to err," is also a picture of the mindless unity with which the Antichrist gathers his army to march against Jerusalem in his last act of desperation." (Joseph R. Chambers, D.D., [A Palace For The Antichrist], New Leaf Press, Green Forest, AR, pp. 136-138.)
To see key Charismatic leaders moving into the framework with Saddam Hussein is breathtaking. It is incredibly tough to get good facts on the Knights of Malta. They apparently are connected both to freemasonry and the Catholic church. Whatever time we have between the present and the Rapture promises to be a fast ride full of interesting details. One thing of absolute importance is to stay close to Jesus and to be wise of all that is happening. Dont put your head in the sand and do not be afraid. If you are His, you will be out of here at exactly the right moment. The King is coming and the Saints will be gone.
