Below we discussed the Red Nova, still known only as KIC 9832227, the binary stars in Cygnus that are supposed to collide and create a red supernova in 2022. It was noted that this sounds an awful lot like "The Warning" in the Marian prophecy at Garabandal. In a way that would be good, for it would buy the world another five years, plus the year to two years that follow The Warning before the dreaded Chastisement.
But what if Red Nova is not The Warning but instead ... the star Wormwood in the Book of Revelation? That may mean there is little to no time at all by virtue of the coming sixth seal worldwide judgment and the first four trumpets of the seventh seal to follow, Wormwood being the third.
Revelation 8:10-11 King James Version (KJV)10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.41:
The great star for seven days will burn,
The cloud will make two suns appear:
The great mastiff will be all night howling,
When the great pontiff changes his land.
Is it possible that that "great star" and Wormwood are the same? Or are they different?
So there you have it: three different views of the same phenomenon.
Of course there are some astronomers that say Red Nova will be no brighter than Polaris, the north star. That is not very bright. In the city, Polaris is very hard to find due to light pollution. If they are right, Red Nova will be a non-event.
And what of the Blue Star prophesied by the Hopi Indians that is to precede the Red Star? That too is a Warning event.
Thus, depending on how we interpret prophecies and how we look at this coming stellar event in 2022, we are either in a period of grace with a warning to come ... or we stand at the precipice of imminent apocalyptic destruction well before the nova even appears. And if KIC 9832227 is a non-event ... it may just be carry on, business as usual.
Daniel 11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
Sounds like war with Greece, doesn't it? Yet, the King James translators got the name "Grecia" from the original Old Testament word Yawan (also Yavan or Javan).
What does Yawan mean? In English spelling Yawan appears as Yavan or Javan. From Bible Study Tools at https://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/javan/ we find out the following about Javan:
1. The fourth "son" of Japheth ( Genesis 10:2 ), whose descendants settled in Greece, i.e., Ionia, which bears the name of Javan in Hebrew. Alexander the Great is called the "king of Javan" (rendered "Grecia," Daniel 8:21 ; 10:20 ; comp 11:2 ; Zechariah 9:13 ). This word was universally used by the nations of the East as the generic name of the Greek race.
2. A town or district of Arabia Felix, from which the Syrians obtained iron, cassia, and calamus ( Ezekiel 27:19 ).
1. A son of Japheth. ( Genesis 10:2 Genesis 10:4 ) Javan was regarded as the representative of the Greek race. The name was probably introduced into Asia by the Phoenicians, to whom the Ionians were naturally better known than any other of the Hellenic races, on account of their commercial activity and the high prosperity of their towns on the western coast of Asia Minor.
2. A town in the southern part of Arabia (Yemen ), whither the Phoenicians traded. ( Ezekiel 27:19 )
Clearly the translators went for definition 1. Yet there is also a possibility that it may mean definition 2.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.55:
In the country of Arabia Felix
There will be born one powerful in the law of Mahomet:
To vex Spain, to conquer Grenada,
And more by sea against the Ligurian people.
Might war between Iran and Saudi Arabia begin in 2018, seven years after a Saudi-led intervention in Bahrain begun on March 14, 2011 prompted condemnation from Iran and Turkey that the move was an invasion? Or will it not occur until 2022, seven years after the start of the civil war in Yemen on March 19, 2015 and the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen on March 26, 2015, also the 42nd anniversary of the Iran-Iraq War begun in 1980? These are key dates and events in the Iran–Saudi Arabia Proxy Conflict which has been ongoing since 1979.
The Red Nova is expected to appear in 2022 as well. Then will that war spread to Turkey, Greece, Italy, and the Balkans? And will the spreading war of 2022 eventually lead to a Russian invasion of Eastern and Central Europe (the almost traditional European prophecy for World War III)?
You can see why correct prophecy interpretation is next to impossible, even when using historical precedents as a means to date such events using a base 7 system. There are too many possibilities to choose from, each one equal in potential. And then there is always the "non-event" scenario ... which means the time is not at hand for any of these.
Still, prophecy (including visions, waking or dream state) and history are the only tools we have in determining what may lie ahead in the future.
UPDATE: Sufyani Attacks in Iran?
In the article below I cast doubt that the former ISIS caliphate and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, could have served in the role of the prophesied Sufyani due to a number of prophecies not yet fulfilled. One of these was that ISIS had never led an attack against territory within the nation of Iran. That apparently did occur in 2017, but on a very small scale:
"On 7 June 2017, two terrorist attacks were simultaneously carried out by five terrorists belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against the Iranian Parliament building and the Mausoleum of Ruhollah Khomeini, both in Tehran, Iran, leaving 17 civilians dead and 43 wounded.
The shootings were the first terrorist attacks in Tehran in more than a decade, and the first major terror attack in the country since the 2010 Zahedan bombings.
Government officials later stated that they had foiled a third attack that day ... On 18 June 2017, the IRGC launched a series of medium-range precision missiles at an ISIL headquarters in Dayr al-Zawr from inside Iran. The retaliatory strikes were, according to an IRGC statement, sending a message to the terrorists
and their networks of supporters after the bloodshed in Tehran."
