So, welcome to the world of ISIS. Like the Egyptian goddess of that name who later became known as the Babylonian and Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar, this modern group ISIS has gone the greater part of the way into evolving into a Babylonian and Mesopotamian entity by taking so much control of these very regions. In the Old Testament, the prophet Jeremiah used another term regarding a latter days figure that may be applicable to ISIS and its leader: "Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon" and "The king of Babylon." Since Nebuchadnezzar never brought about the total incineration of Damascus, Amman and Tel Aviv or the complete and utter destruction of other Middle East cities and nations in a manner similar to "the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah," it is a safe bet that it is not the Nebuchadnezzar of old that the PROPHET OF END TIMES is writing about.
Are ISIS and its leader this future "king of Babylon?" Perhaps ... but looks can be deceiving, however horrid and reprehensible the practices of this group are. It was not that many years ago that the world of prophecy was convinced Saddam Hussein was this ultimate "king of Babylon" ... not to mention Mabus, the Third Antichrist, and a whole slew of other prophetic figures roled into one. As assuredly as the Christian pastors of the 1930s were wrong in branding Adolf Hitler as the beast of Revelation, nearly the whole of the prophecy community turned out to be dead wrong about Saddam Hussein, not to mention being wrong about Moammar Gadhafi, Ayatollah Khomenei, Hafez al-Assad, Yasser Arafat, Abu Nidal, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Mohammad Abu Abbas, Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr. ( the so-called founder of the New World Order), Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and most likely also President Barrack Obama once he steps down from office in January 2017. Well, at least prophecy doomsayers have been bipartisan in their views.
And I've made about all the same mistakes, just like the rest, buying into the Saddam myth and all the other ones. So I'm just warning you: ISIS may NOT be the entity to worry about either. Two or three years from now, ISIS could go the way of the dodo and make all the prophecy projections regarding it look positively stupid.
However, one thing can not be ignored. The world is becoming an increasingly more dangerous, unstable and frightening place, and the horrors that man perpetrates upon his fellow man become more abominable, more outrageous, more diabolic, and more frequent with each passing year. THAT is a trend that is not going away or reversing itself ... and anyone with intelligence knows that, unchecked and ongoing, it can only lead to some sort of an apocalypse, whether it is the one prophesied in the Bible or some other kind. Meantime, the very planet upon which we live and depend on for our survival is moving towards some terrible day of reckoning of its own.
But before continuing, remember that there is a MAJOR difference between prophecy interpretation and making prophecy. Prophecy interpretation is nothing more than speculation, however well-informed or well-researched the sources may be. Many of us speculate our brains out, basing our views on current events. And while I certainly do not ignore current developments, I decided a long time ago that HISTORY is a better indicator of future events, especially if you get wise to its patterns (thus, the base 7 system was born). But outwitting the persistent influences the past exert on our present can prove to be as difficult as winning a chess match against the Grim Reaper. History has a wily way of creeping up on you, even all the while you are watching and waiting for it, and doing so in a way you do NOT expect and then biting you in the ass.
Returning to ISIS. Kathryn Wolfe is alive and well, but like me, has had more than her share of responsibilities, difficult problems, and obligations offline that make a continuous online presence otherwise quite difficult. Like me, she also believes there has to be a female dimension to the prophetic figure known as "the whore of Babylon." I'm sorry, but I could never buy into the idea of the "whore of Babylon" being the pope.
You have to understand that the "whore of Babylon" is also an historical figure, one who was definitely a female. The goddess Ishtar was none other than this "whore of Babylon" and she was personified -- yes, PERSONIFIED -- by a long reign of Babylonian queens beginning with Queen Semiramis. Semiramis, a mortal woman, was the first "whore of Babylon." She was a real person. The religious rites were sacred sexual rites in nature, thus the goddess in human form, and all of her priestesses, were holy harlots. As such, they commanded much adoration and respect from both male and female worshippers and from the community as a whole.
Almost a year ago, Kathryn told me she was expecting to eventually see a woman come to the forefront as a kind of representative of ISIS. This happened not long after a former punk rock diva went to Syria to join the group, declaring to the media that she couldn't wait to cut off the heads of Christians. What is important is that Kathryn saw this woman (who has yet to appear) as being in some type of military uniform.
I now must report that the antithesis to this idea has come to pass. Kathryn informed me of this yesterday afternoon: Beauty queen and vigilante female hackers declare online war on ISIS - July 27, 2015.
A nearly all-female online vigilante hacker group, which boasts a former Jordanian beauty queen among its ranks, has vowed to eliminate Isis's online presence to disrupt the group's capacity to organise terror attacks. Ghost Security, or GhostSec was formed in the wake of the terrorist attacks against the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris in January. The group works to disrupt the recruitment and communication abilities of the jihadi group, as well as "collecting threat intelligence to prevent terror attacks from becoming a reality". It also contacts intelligence organisations when it learns of a potential terror threat ...
One of the hackers is Lara Abdallat, a former Miss Jordan and a runner-up in the 2011 Miss Arab World pageant, who decided to join the group after Islamic State soldiers burned a Jordanian pilot alive inside a cage in February. "I think people find it interesting and inspiring that a former beauty queen and a woman has engaged in war with the Islamic State," Abdallat tells Newsweek. "However I also feel that Isis puts everyone at risk and therefore it does not matter if you are male or female but rather the fact that we must come together for the common cause of destroying Isis."
One can well see where this may be heading. With females, and beautiful ones at that, becoming increasingly visible to the public as opponents of evil, as globetrotting ambassadors of good will, as military heros (like the female Kurdish soldiers, some who have died fighting ISIS), as political activists, as political candidates for the highest offices ... how long will it be before they enter the public realm of spiritual and deeply religious matters? And how long before a famous and beautiful one turns to the darker aspects of human nature and becomes universally indentified with that which should NOT have representation?
I believe it is only a matter of time before ISIS and its leader presents their female alternative to Lara Abdallat. But that would require their changing their rules of what female roles in ISIS should be as well as modifying a dress code that requires all aspects of the female personality to be covered from head to toe. This is not unthinkable.
ISIS members have been observed engaging in activities not in keeping with their Islamic faith. If Al-Baghdadi is serious about running a real country, or an empire, it is inevitable that he and his followers will have to learn to play the PR game. It is a necessary game to play anyway in order to seduce converts, and they play it well. But like it or not, the ultimate card they will have to play if they are playing to win will have to come in the form of a woman ... in or out of uniform.
If this happens, watch out, for this female will be none other than the prophesied "whore of Babylon" ... who appears in the "wilderness" (the desert) and gets drunk drinking the blood of slain Christian "martyrs" and other enemies of the beast/false prophet system.
Perhaps our biggest collective mistake has been to westernize the figures who appear in the Book of Revelation. All other prophecy that occurs in the Bible is clearly and mostly in the Middle East, Asia Minor (Turkey), Central Asia, and in some instances, some southern European and north African countries. Yet for centuries Bible prophecy interpreters have tried to apply events in the Book of Revelation, especially the coming of the beast and false prophet, to WESTERN figures and establishments. And rather than admit that women could ever hold positions of power and prestige, they turned the females into metaphors for churches and institutions as well as the men who led them. Thus the Lutheran Protestant heresy of calling The Catholic Church "the whore of Babylon" or the Pope as the false prophet. It was easier for these various organs to feminize what they had come to regard as an apostate religion than to admit that the women of Bible prophecy might actually be real mortal females. Today and since the time of the American and French Revolutions, it is the Illuminati who have sought to Westernize the unholy trinity: thus through worldly power they have tried to have certain political leaders come to be regarded as gods, and at every turn, failed, and through the power of the occult to deify the most famous actresses and pop singers so that they may come to be regarded as goddesses. They fail because the theater where this is to be played out is in and around the Middle East, not in Europe or America.
The role of women practically and not fancifully fulfilling roles found in prophecy is yet another trend that is becoming increasingly more self evident with the passing of time.
