The Oracle of Tolemac

The Last Days of Tolemac” is a book about prophecy. It deals with events that are happening in the world today and shows how they fulfill prophecies that were made many centuries ago. The book is set out in a series of questions and answers, and explains in detail:

  • What is about to happen to our planet
  • Why these events are happening at this time
  • What places on earth will be affected
  • What the new world will be like
  • What we can do to prepare

As the book explains, our world is about to be transformed. We are about to experience “a new heaven and a new earth” where there will be no more suffering and no more pain. However all of us are faced with a choice. Do we wish to inherit the new world that is coming? Or will we fall victim to the catastrophes that will herald its arrival? What we need to do to survive is explained in the pages of this book.

Podcast # 37 – What Time Is It? (Part Two)

My name is Mark Stevens.  I am talking today with Allan Colston. He is the author of The Last Days of Tolemac, which is a book dealing with prophecy and other end-time events.

For those listeners who may be new to this topic, this is another in the series “Signs of the Times”.  Welcome to this Podcast Allan. It’s good to chat to you again.

Thanks Mark.

Mark: In our last conversation, you said that Donald Trump might be the last President of the United States, and that his actions could lead to the destruction of America, and the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Could you tell us a little more about this?

Certainly Mark. I said that the test would be whether he followed through with his election promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from its present location in Tel Aviv to the contested city of Jerusalem. And as we all know by now, he went ahead and announced his plan to do so late last year.

Not surprisingly, Trump’s decision was met with fierce opposition, not just from Muslim and Arab countries, but from many western nations as well. In fact, at the United Nations, 128 countries voted to condemn his decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

While this overwhelming condemnation was entirely predictable and should have been foreseen, the US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, told The Jerusalem Post that the Palestinian response was “overly emotional”, and that its rhetoric was “ugly, needlessly provocative and anti-Semitic”.

It is clear from the ambassador’s response that Donald Trump either overlooked, or deliberately chose to ignore, the degree to which the city of Jerusalem has become an emotional lightning rod that ignites Muslims and Arabs everywhere.

Furthermore, because he lacks a classical education, Trump had probably never even heard of Pegasus, the pure-white divine stallion of the ancient Greeks, or of its later incarnation in Islamic mythology, where it was referred to as Buraq, the heavenly steed that transported the prophets.

For according to Islamic teaching, it was Buraq that carried Muhammad on his famous night journey to Jerusalem, where he met with earlier prophets (including Jesus), as well as with God (Allah). In fact the Dome of the Rock was built on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem to commemorate this very meeting.

For Muslims everywhere therefore, Jerusalem is not just another city. It is integrally tied to one of the most significant events in the life of the prophet. So the decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem was not just an affront to the Palestinians, it was a direct challenge to all Muslims.

Just to give you an idea about how Muslims feel about this issue Mark, the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Sheik Mohammed Badie, has called for a Jihad (holy war) to liberate Jerusalem from Israeli rule. He had this to say to his followers:

“Jerusalem is Islamic and nobody is entitled to make any concessions about the fate of the city. The Jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims“. He went on to say: “The liberation of the Holy City will not be done through negotiations, or at the United Nations”.

Another prominent campaigner for the conquest of Jerusalem, has been the Egyptian Imam and television preacher by the name of Safwat Hegazi. Hegazi is on record saying: “Our capital shall not be in Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God’s will”.

And to a crowd of his supporters in the Gaza Strip he added: “The United States of the Arabs will be restored. The capital of the Muslim Caliphate will be Jerusalem with God’s will. Our chants shall be: millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem”.

So the rallying cry amongst Muslims, not just in Palestine but throughout the entire Middle-East, has long been “Next year in Jerusalem!” Naturally, all of this is lost on Donald Trump. But had he been conversant with Bible prophecy, he would probably have acted with a little more caution.

Mark: What does the Bible have to say about this?

The Bible is full of hints about the things that will come to pass during the end-times Mark, if we know where to look and what to look for. And one of the clearest signs of the time of the end can be found in the writings of the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel.

If anyone doubts the significance of prophecy, they need look no further than Ezekiel. Although he lived six centuries before Jesus was born, at a time when the Jewish people were living in exile in Babylon, he described events that would occur in Israel 2,600 years later with uncanny accuracy.

For example, in Chapter 37 of his book of prophecy as recorded in the Old Testament, Ezekiel predicted that a time would come when the scattered tribes of Israel would return to the land of their forefathers, and that they would become a nation once more. As he wrote:

“And say unto them, thus saith the Lord God: behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them up on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel”.

And as you know Mark, this actually happened on May 14, 1948, when the state of Israel came into being, following the adoption of a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly. Ezekiel then went on to predict that in the “latter days”, Israel would be attacked by a “mighty army”.

Mark: Did he say what sort of army this would be?

Yes Mark he did. In chapter 38, Ezekiel explained that this army would consist of a coalition of forces, ranging from Gog in “the north parts” (an obvious reference to Russia), as well as Gomer and Togarmah (places in modern Turkey), together with Persia (Iran), Ethiopia and Libya.

“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, thus saith the Lord God; in that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army.

“And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes”.

According to Ezekiel, this vast army would assemble on the borders to the north, south and east of Israel. Their goal would be to eradicate the Jewish state once and for all, and claim the land as their own under a new Caliphate, with Jerusalem as its capital.

What I find significant about this Mark, is that Ezekiel makes it clear that the goal of this mighty army is not to destroy everything in its path with tanks, rockets and artillery, but rather to protect the holy Islamic shrines in Jerusalem, and spare the lives of those Arabs living in Israel at the time.

This also makes a lot of military sense, for Israel would prefer to attack enemy forces on foreign soil rather than inside the country, where there would be far more Jewish casualties. Plus, they would be hard pressed to withstand enemy forces that advanced from all sides at the same time.

But according to Ezekiel, just when all hope seems lost and the entire nation seems doomed, the Jews will be saved by a supernatural event. A comet will appear suddenly in the skies above the earth, causing great earthquakes and destruction throughout the land. For as he goes on to say:

“And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken. Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel.

“So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground”.

Mark:  So what will be the fate of those armies surrounding Israel at that time?

According to Ezekiel, the armies that are gathered on the borders of Israel will be caught on the open plains. They will be will be exposed to the full fury of the “hailstones, fire and brimstone” that will descend on them from the skies. As he writes:

“And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire and brimstone”.

Anyway, as a result of the earthquakes on the land and the aerial bombardment from the skies, the armies that had gathered on the borders of Israel will be decimated. Those few who survive these disasters will either be unable, or unwilling, to pursue their assault.

Ezekiel writes that only “a sixth part” of the invading armies will survive the onslaught of the comet.

“Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, thus saith the Lord God; behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee.

“And I will smite the bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beast of the field to be devoured”.

Ezekiel goes on to write that, after the comet has passed, the countryside will be littered with the wreckage of the armaments and the bodies of the dead. So many people will die on the open plains on the eastern side of the Dead Sea that it will take the Israelis seven months to bury them all.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude. And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land”.

Throughout chapters 37,38 and 39, Ezekiel paints a graphic picture of a failed military campaign against the state of Israel, and of the devastating losses incurred by the invading armies because of the timely intervention of the comet that is called “Wormwood” in St. John’s book of Revelation.

So Mark, what it all boils down to is this. We know what Ezekiel has predicted. What we need to ask ourselves now, based on what is going on in the region today, is whether there is any chance of such a conflict happening, and if so, whether it could happen soon?

Mark: That’s an intriguing question Allan. You have been studying the situation in the Middle-East for many years. What do you think?

Well Mark, my own hunch is that the scenario described by Ezekiel could most certainly happen. And the way the situation in the Middle-East is deteriorating in this age of Donald Trump, it seems not only possible, but probable. And sooner rather than later. Consider the following factors.

Firstly, the coalition of countries described by Ezekiel already exists. Russia is closely linked with both Iran and Turkey, especially since their major strategic interests all coalesce in Syria. And secondly, rebel forces in places like Libya, Ethiopia and Sudan would quickly join them if called upon to do so.

Because Russia’s Black Sea fleet is based in the port of Sevastopol in Crimea, it suffers from the disadvantage of having to pass through the narrow strait of the Dardanelles before it can reach the open sea. That is why Russia has long sought a naval base located in the Mediterranean.

And since becoming involved in the Syrian conflict at the request of Iran and President al-Assad in 2015, they have done exactly that. They have taken over the Syrian port of Tartous, and are using it as a base for Russian ships. They have also established two permanent air force bases in the country.

Because of its proximity to Israel, Syria has long been of crucial value to Iran. Ever since it became an Islamic Republic in 1979, Iran has committed itself to the goal of the destruction of the Jewish state, and no national occasion passes without reminding its citizens of this fundamental objective.

Up until now, it has done this primarily by funding and providing military equipment to the Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza strip, who have already been involved in a series of wars with Israel. And it is through Syria that most of these military supplies are provided.

Although not directly involved in the Syrian civil war up until now, Turkey has nevertheless played a significant part in determining its outcome. At one point it even found itself in conflict with the Russians, when it shot down one of their fighters that strayed into Turkish airspace.

But since that time President Erdogan has mended his friendship with Putin, and just recently signed an accord for Moscow to supply Ankara with the latest S-400 surface-to-air missiles. Turkey also continues to be a harsh critic of President al-Assad of Syria, and actively campaigns to replace him.

Erdogan has also strongly criticized the American decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, telling members of his AK party: “God willing, the day is close when officially, with God’s permission, we will open our embassy in East Jerusalem”.

To summarise then Mark, the three main countries quoted by Ezekiel in this future war with Israel (Russia, Turkey and Iran), are more than capable of doing so. They all have forces close to the Israeli border, and are united in their opposition to recent moves involving the city of Jerusalem.

Although the decision to move the American embassy has the potential to destabilise the entire region, this by itself would not be justification for them to go to war. There would have to be something else – something far more serious – something the Israelis are certainly capable of bringing down upon themselves.

Mark: Why do you say that Allan?

No doubt emboldened by recent American support, the Israeli government has made even more provocative decisions in recent weeks. For example, it has accelerated plans to solidify its control over the city of Jerusalem, in a way that threatens the entire two-state solution to the Palestinian crisis.

In an all-night session, the Knesset (Israeli parliament) passed an amendment to Israel’s Basic Law, stipulating that any attempt to transfer sovereign control of Jerusalem to a foreign power, would now need a supermajority of 80 members out of 120, instead of the previous 61.

And in a move sure to enrage Palestinians even more, this same amendment authorised the Knesset to change the municipal borders of Jerusalem by a simple majority of 61. And if any Palestinian neighbourhood is later removed from city limits, it will still remain under Israeli control.

Just a few days earlier, the Likud Central Committee voted unanimously to apply Israeli law to all Israeli settlements on the West Bank. Although this vote was non-binding, it was a signal that the government might annex those areas of Palestinian land where over 600,000 Israelis now live.

Commenting on this vote the Israeli Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan gloated: “We will tell the world it does not matter what outsiders say. We will place Israeli sovereignty over towns in Judea and Samaria (the Israeli term for the West Bank), not because of our strength but because of our rights”.

And it is this continual flaunting of Israeli power in the face of Palestinian weakness, that may prove to be the final straw that will one day prompt the enemies of Israel to mount a military campaign against them. And then there is the mysterious Biblical reference to the city of Damascus.

Mark: What does the Bible have to say about that?

Again Mark, the Bible gives us a clue as to what might soon happen in the Middle-East. But this time it is not the Old Testament prophet Ezekiel who is the source, but another Hebrew prophet who lived about two hundred years before him. I am talking here about Isaiah.

Isaiah begins the 17th chapter of his book of prophecy with a simple verse. It consists of just twenty words. Yet they have prompted more debate among Biblical scholars than perhaps any other single sentence. And to this day no one really knows for sure what Isaiah meant. This is what he wrote:

“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city and it shall be a ruinous heap”.

While some Biblical historians maintain that this prophecy was fulfilled when Damascus was conquered in 732 B.C. by the Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser, other scholars insist that this verse must refer to the future, since this Syrian city has been continuously occupied for well over 3,000 years.

In other words, they claim that whatever might have happened in the past, Damascus has never stopped being a city. And it has certainly never been reduced to “a ruinous heap”. So if this verse does refer to the future, then what might cause it to be reduced to a pile of rubble?

This is important Mark, because Isaiah is not just referring here to heavy physical damage, such as we have seen recently in other Syrian cities like Homs and Aleppo, which have been devastated by tanks, artillery and barrel bombs. He is talking here about total annihilation.

Mark: Do you think Damascus might be destroyed by the Israelis, and that is why these countries would decide to go to war?

Well you raise an interesting point Mark. And some preachers have suggested exactly that. In fact, they have even gone so far as to suggest that Damascus will be attacked by Israel, and that the entire city will be wiped out by a nuclear bomb.

One of the most prominent supporters of this idea is the American author Tim McHyde, who now makes his home in Germany. McHyde has devoted the last twenty years of his life to what he calls his “ministry”, which is to reveal the real meaning of Bible prophecy as it relates to the “last days”.

One of the pages of his website carries the title Isaiah 17: When Will Israel Nuke Damascus?” As he explains, although Israel insists that it will never to be the first country to use nuclear weapons, it might be forced to do so if it felt that its survival as a nation was threatened. As he writes:

“Importantly, Israel also has the will to use these weapons. Because Israel’s enemies are so numerous and able to overrun the tiny nation so easily, Israel has adopted a nuclear policy called “The Samson Option”.

“The name comes from the famously strong judge of Israel who took his own life by knocking out the support pillars of the temple he was in to avenge himself on his enemies around him. According to this policy, Israel would nuke the cities of her enemies if she was overrun or about to be defeated. Hitting the leadership of Syria at Damascus would be part of this retaliatory attack”.

Now if the Israeli government ever did decide that the nation’s existence was threatened, and went ahead and destroyed the city of Damascus, I have no doubt that this would lead to war with the Arab nations, especially if they used a nuclear weapon to do so. But I don’t believe they will.

Mark: Why not?

Well Mark, I believe that interpreters of events of the “last days” like Tim McHyde have completely misunderstood the nature and sequence of events that are described in the 17th chapter of the book of Isaiah, and the 38th chapter of the book of Ezekiel.

The reason I say that is because I am convinced that both chapters refer to the same event. Both Ezekiel and Isaiah are describing an event in the future where God’s wrath is visited upon the enemies of Israel, in which their armies are overcome, and the city of Damascus is completely wiped out.

As I see it, the first verse of chapter 17 of the book of Isaiah should read as follows: “Behold the fate of Damascus. It will no longer be a city, just a heap of ruins”. In my view, the destruction of Damascus will not be the cause of this future war, it will be the result of the war – i.e. collateral damage.

And the key to understanding this lies in the meaning of the words “fire, hail and brimstone”. People like Tim McHyde interpret these words as the fall-out from nuclear weapons, whereas Ezekiel makes it perfectly plain that the armies are not destroyed by human action, but by “Divine” intervention.

The words “fire and brimstone” are mentioned fourteen times in the Bible, including six times in the book of Revelation. The most famous example was the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. “Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven”. (Genesis 19:24)

In a similar way, Damascus will be destroyed by fiery hailstones raining down upon it from the skies. This “fiery hail”, or what we would call today “incandescent meteorites”, will not only devastate the city with the power of their impact, but will set fire to the surrounding areas as well.

But that is not all. This fiery hail will be accompanied by a mighty earthquake that Ezekiel says will shake the entire land of Israel. And since Damascus is just over thirty miles from the Israeli border, there is every likelihood that it will be devastated by this earthquake as well.

Let me remind you again of the words in chapter 38 of the book of Ezekiel.

“And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face. …Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel….And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground”.

We need to remember that Damascus is not only a historic city, it is an old city. By that I mean “old” in terms of construction. So if an earthquake is strong enough to cause “mountains to be thrown down”, then buildings made of bricks and mortar will inevitably collapse into “a ruinous heap”.

Mark: Well I must admit Allan, you make a convincing case. So that raises my original question. Do we have any idea when all this will happen?

Well as I said before Mark, the Bible doesn’t give any dates. But there is another clue in prophecy which I think shows that it cannot be more than a few years away. This time the prophecy doesn’t come from the Bible, but from a 12th century Christian saint.

In my Blogpost entitled The Last Pope, I discussed how in the year 1139, a young Irish priest named father Malachy decided to undertake a pilgrimage to Rome to seek an audience with Pope Innocent II. But as soon as he got a glimpse of the Holy City, he fell to the ground in a trance.

During this trance, Malachy had a vision of the future of the Church, starting with his own time, and leading up to the return of the Christ. His vision included a sequence of all the Popes who would reign in Rome up until the time of the end. According to St. Malachy, there would be 112 of them.

According to St. Malachy, the last Pope (Number 112) would be the Pope who would witness the collapse of the Church and the rise to power on the world stage of the man who would come to be known as the Anti-Christ. This would be followed by the return of the Christ.

In describing the last Pope to hold the Office of Peter in the Church of Rome before the return of the Christ, St. Malachy ended his description with these chilling words:

“In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the end of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End”.

Now compare this Mark with the words of the “third secret of Fatima” that I spoke about earlier, that were included in the official version that was released to the public by the Vatican in the year 2000.

“And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it ‘a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark;

“Before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him,

“And in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God”. (View Source)

Mark: So how does this help us understand when these things are going to happen?

Well Mark, according to the sequence of Popes quoted by St. Malachy, the present Pope Francis is the 112th Pope. That means that he will be one who will experience “extreme persecution” and endure “many tribulations”. And he will be the one who will see the destruction of Rome, the “city of seven hills”.

And this is where the rubber meets the road, as I like to say. On December 17th of last year, Pope Francis celebrated his 81st birthday. So if he is the last Pope, who has to endure all those things that have been prophesied about him, simple common sense tells us that they would have to start soon.

So there you have it Mark. We now know what to look out for. We know where to look. We know who is going to be involved. So if we are to be guided by the words of Jesus, who told his followers to watch and pray, then this is the time to watch. And this is the time to pray.

Mark:  Well Allan, once again I want to thank you for your amazing insight into what is happening in the world today, and how this ties in with Bible prophecy.

You have been listening to Allan Colston, author of the book The Last Days of Tolemac.  Do join us for our next Podcast, which will be another in the series titled “Signs of the Times”.

Allan, AUDIO, Signs of the Times, January 3, 2018, 4:07 pm

Podcast # 36 – What Time Is It? (Part One)

My name is Mark Stevens.  I am talking today with Allan Colston. He is the author of The Last Days of Tolemac, which is a book dealing with prophecy and other end-time events.

For those listeners who may be new to this topic, this is another in the series “Signs of the Times”.  I’d like to start by welcoming you to this Podcast Allan, and by saying how much I am looking forward to our discussion today.

Thanks very much Mark. The feeling is mutual.

Mark: If you don’t mind, I wondered if we could go back to our last conversation. You will remember that when you said that the world as we know it may be coming to an end, I followed this up with a question.

As I recall, you said that if this really was the case, then why us and why now?

Mark:  You have an excellent memory Allan. Anyway, you responded by saying that it was all about time. Now I have a further question to ask you, and that is: “If it is all about time, then what time is it?” Or to put this another way, how close are we to the time of the end?

That’s a great question Mark. In fact there are undoubtedly millions of people all around the planet who would love to know the answer to that question. But before I answer, let me ask you a question of my own. Why do you want to know?

Mark:  Well Allan, like so many other people who are alarmed by what they see going on in the world today, I not only want to know how this is all going to end, but also how much time we have left?

Fair enough Mark. But there’s a deeper aspect to my question. Suppose I tell you that we have, say, twenty-six months left before life as we know it will come to an end. What difference will that make? Will this change the way you live your life? Or will it make any difference at all?

Mark:  I guess I never really stopped to think about that.

This is a crucially important question Mark. The inescapable fact is that, whatever is about to happen on the earth, is going to happen no matter what we think about it. We cannot change that now. So the vital question then becomes, what can we do to prepare ourselves for what is about to happen?

Mark:  Well that depends on what sort of things are going to happen, and where.

Well the good news is that we are not left totally in the dark about this. There are clues about what will happen at the time of the end. These clues lie hidden in the words of prophecy, if we have the wit and the wisdom to find them and follow them.

When I first began these Podcasts with Scott Paton back in 2010, one of the first topics I discussed with him was this question of prophecy, and whether it was wise, or even possible, to know what would happen in the future. This is what I had to say at that time.

Most people who are guided by science tend to believe that life unfolds according to chance, based on forces that can never be understood, let alone predicted. They believe that any attempt to try to predict future events is sheer folly. These people are content to take each day as it comes.

But throughout history, there have been men and women who have claimed to be able to predict future events. This has especially been true within the various religions of the world. These individuals have come to be regarded as divinely inspired, and their predictions have been accepted as the ordained will of God.

We need to remember that prophecy is not simple prediction. And those who claim to be prophets do not do so merely to inform. They are not just telling an interesting story. All true prophecy stands as a warning. And those who hope to benefit from it must be prepared to act on these warnings.

So the purpose of all true prophecy is to inspire understanding, and reduce suffering. And this is the crucial point we need to understand Mark. It is not enough to understand prophecy. We have to be prepared to act on this understanding. Just knowing about it won’t save us from future suffering.

To illustrate my point, do you happen to recall the story that I wrote about in my Blog about Pope John Paul II and the enigmatic third prophecy of Fatima, in which he pointed out the dangers of knowing about what is coming without doing anything about it?

Mark:  I can’t say that I do. Perhaps you can refresh my memory.

Well just to recap, the prophecy itself dates back to a series of events that occurred over a century ago, at a place called Cova da Iria, near the village of Fátima in Portugal.

It was on 13th May 1917, when three young shepherd children claimed to have had a vision of a luminous angelic Being “brighter than the sun” whom they considered to be the Virgin Mary. The three children were Lúcia Santos and her two cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto.

Lúcia was just ten years old when these visionary events began. This same apparition appeared before the three children around noon on the 13th day of each of the next six months. According to Lúcia, this “lady” confided in her and her two cousins, and shared three “secrets” with them.

These secrets have come to be known as the “Three Secrets of Fatima”.

On 13th July, 1917, Lúcia said that the Blessed Mother had told her that her two cousins would die in the near future. This prophecy was fulfilled a short time later when they both succumbed to the Spanish influenza pandemic in 1918, leaving Lúcia as the sole surviving witness.

Not long after the death of her two cousins, Lúcia entered the Convent of St. Dorothy in Tuy, Spain. In March 1948 she left this Convent to join the Carmelite Order of St. Theresa at Coimbra in Portugal, where she continued to live until her death on February 13th, 2005 at the age of 97.

Being a Carmelite Sister, Lúcia Santos was required to observe the customary vow of silence. However, she did write out an account of the events that had occurred to her in 1917, together with a description of the three secrets given to her by the Angelic Being.

The first two secrets were revealed to the world by the Vatican in August 1941. The first secret was said to have been a vision of Hell. The second predicted the end of World War I, and announced that an even greater war would follow unless the people of Russia chose to repent and return to the path of God.

The third and most important secret given to Lúcia was supposed to have been revealed to the world by the Vatican in 1960, supposedly at the direction of the visionary Being herself. However, when the year 1960 arrived, the Church refused to do so.

And this brings me to the point I wanted to make. In October 1980, Pope John Paul II spoke to a select group of Catholics at a meeting in Fulda in Germany. At this meeting he was asked what the third secret contained, and why it had not yet been revealed to the world.

Mark:  Do we know what the Pope had to say about this?

Yes Mark we do, because a transcript of that meeting was later published in the German magazine Stimme des Glaubens. This is what Pope John Paul II was reported to have said in answer to this question:

“Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to carry out certain moves.

“On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired.

“Many wish to know simply from curiosity and a taste for the sensational, but they forget that knowledge also implies responsibility. They only seek the satisfaction of their curiosity, and that is dangerous if at the same time they are not disposed to do something, and if they are convinced that it is impossible to do anything against evil”.

At this point the Pope grasped a Rosary and said: “Here is the remedy against this evil. Pray, pray, and ask for nothing more. Leave everything else to the Mother of God.” The Holy Father was then asked: “What is going to happen to the Church?”

He answered: “We must prepare ourselves to suffer great trials before long, such as will demand of us the readiness to cast away even our lives, and a total dedication to Christ and for Christ.

“With your and my prayer it is possible to mitigate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only thus can the Church be effectively renewed.

“How many times has the renewal of the Church sprung from blood! This time, too, it will not be otherwise. We must be strong and prepared, and trust in Christ and His Mother, and be very, very assiduous in praying the Rosary.” (View Source)

It is worth repeating the Pope’s words here, when he said that “many wish to know simply from curiosity and a taste for the sensational”. But as he went on to warn, this knowledge also implies responsibility, and this is dangerous “if at the same time they are not disposed to do something”.

So even if we are successful in finding out what is about to happen Mark, this knowledge won’t help us unless it serves also to motivate us to change the way we live our lives. Fortunately, the Bible not only tells us what is going to happen, it also describes what we need to do about it as well.

Mark:  What does the Bible have to say about this?

When Jesus was asked by his disciples what signs to look out for in the days leading up to his return, he replied:

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be”. (Matthew 24:21) He also warned his disciples to be ready, because this tribulation would come suddenly, “like a thief in the night”. “Therefore be ye also ready. For in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh”. (Matthew 24:44)

As we can see from these words, Jesus warned his disciples that the end would come suddenly, at a time when no one was expecting it. Many would be unprepared. They would be caught unawares.

Unfortunately, most people in the world today are not ready. They remain completely unaware of the cataclysmic events that will shortly come to pass. They do not realise that they will be witnesses to the terror that is coming, and become the victims of the catastrophes that will follow.

And when these things do begin to happen, they will be the first ones who will cry out in anguish saying, why didn’t anyone warn us?

Jesus urged his followers to watch and pray. They needed to be constantly on guard for the time of the end, and pray always that they may be spared from the devastation of the Great Tribulation.

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; behold the fig tree, and all the trees; when they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

“So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

“For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”  (Luke 21: 28-36)

Jesus makes it clear that if we are to be counted worthy of escaping these disasters, we first have to live sacred and sober lives, and avoid the excesses of the flesh. And we must never allow the cares and responsibilities of this world to blind us from the warning signs of his return.

And that is why we also have to continually be aware of the events that are unfolding around us, so that we are not taken unawares, especially as Jesus warned his disciples that the great tribulation would come suddenly, “like a thief in the night”.

Mark:  So does the Bible give us any clues as to when this might happen, so we can get an idea that to look out for?

Obviously, the Bible does not give us any dates Mark, but it does give us clues about the events that will unfold at that time. And then it is up to us to try to figure out how much time we have left. But based on what I see going on in the world today, I would guess that we only have a few years left.

Mark:  Why do you say that Allan?

When Jesus was asked what sort of disasters would take place on the earth at the time of the end, he painted the scene in broad brushstrokes that left little to the imagination, as we can see from verses 10 and 11 of chapter 21 of the gospel of St. Luke:

Then said he unto them, nation shall rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven”.

I think you can agree Mark, that many of these signs are already present in the world today, as can be seen from headlines in the daily news. But if Jesus merely outlined these events in general terms, it was his disciple John who spelled out the details in far more graphic terms.

In chapter six of his Book of Revelation, John described a scroll in God’s right hand that was sealed with seven seals. When these seals were opened, four beings were summoned forth to ride upon the world. Each being was seated on a horse of a different colour.

The first rider sat on a white horse. The second on a red horse. Then came a rider on a black horse. The final horseman rode a pale horse. Collectively, these four riders have come to be known in prophecy as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”.

According to St. John, each of these four riders symbolized a different type of plague that would afflict the earth at the time of the Great Tribulation. The first of these was “pestilence” or disease. Then came war and conquest, followed by famine and death.

But as I have mentioned before Mark, the Bible makes it clear that the seven-year period of tribulation will begin with a single event. That event is described in chapter 8, verse 8, of the Book of Revelation, when “a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea”.

Mark:  So Allan, what do you think this verse refers to?

Well Mark, as I have explained in my Blog entry titled “The Day of the Lord”, I believe that this “great mountain burning with fire” refers to an asteroid. And for reasons I have described in my Blog, I am convinced that it will strike the ocean just west of the island of Puerto Rico.

The destruction caused by this asteroid will be far greater than any natural disaster in recorded history. To begin with, a succession of gigantic tsunamis will spread out across the open ocean in all directions from the impact site, at a speed of over 500mph (800kph), causing immense loss of life.

The first places to be affected will be Puerto Rico itself, along with all the other islands in the Caribbean. These tsunamis will then swamp all those countries bordering the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the entire East coast of the United States. They will also spread eastwards across the Atlantic ocean.

Countries like Belgium and the Netherlands will be completely engulfed in a matter of minutes, along with low-lying areas of Portugal, Spain, France and Germany. This will be the time when the Pope’s words will come to pass, when millions of people will perish “from one moment to the next”.

It will also bear out the prophecy of Edgar Cayce, when he said: “The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye”.  (Reading 3976-15)

While the damage to shipping and property along the shores of these coastal regions will be beyond calculation, it will be nothing compared to the number of human casualties, which will rise to many hundreds of millions of people all around the world on that first day alone.

But of course it doesn’t end there. In the immediate aftermath of this catastrophic event, all those hundreds of millions of corpses of the victims will lie rotting in lakes and rivers and on what is left of the land, contaminating the water and leading to vast outbreaks of disease.

For as we have seen recently in the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria, citizens who were forced to drink contaminated water faced a variety of potentially lethal diseases, ranging from cholera, fever and the plague, as well as flesh-eating disease.

For those unfortunate souls who survive this initial disaster, this will seem like the end of the world. But this will not be the end. It will merely be the beginning of seven years of tribulation that will lead to the death of billions of people around the planet. And then there will be the world-wide famine.

Mark:  So what do the prophets have to say about that?

Well, as I have already indicated Mark, in chapter 6 of the Book of Revelation, St. John refers to the four horsemen of the apocalypse, saying: “And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with the sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth”.

But we don’t need St. John to tell us that the world is in trouble. The signs of impending famine can be found all over the planet. I am talking here about desertification – the process whereby fertile land becomes desert, as a result of drought, deforestation and bad agricultural practices.

According to an economic analysis published recently by the United Nations Desertification Convention, severe land degradation is now affecting 168 countries around the world. According to this analysis, every year land degradation is wiping out an area three times the size of Switzerland.

And when you add to this the amount of agricultural land that is imperilled by the increase in ultra-violet radiation emanating from the sun that I wrote about in my Blog story about climate change, then you will see that we already have a potential world-wide calamity on our hands.

It also brings to mind some of the graphic quatrains penned by Nostradamus dealing with end-time events, such as:

Century One – Verse 67
The great famine which I sense approaching will often turn (in various areas) then become world-wide. It will be so vast and long lasting that (they) will grab roots from the trees and children from the breast.

Century Two – Verse 62
Mabus will soon die, then will come a terrible destruction of people and animals: Sudden vengeance will be seen, A hundred hands, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass.

Century Two – Verse 91
A great fire will be seen at sunrise, noise and light extending towards the north: Death within the earth, one will hear cries, Death awaits them through war, fire and famine.

Century Three – Verse 19
In Lucca it will rain blood and milk, shortly before a change of leader: Great plague and war, famine and drought will be seen, far from where the prince and ruler dies.

Century Three – Verse 42
A child born with two teeth in his mouth, stones will fall like rain in Tuscany: A few years after no wheat or barley, to satisfy those who faint from hunger.

Century Six – Verse 5
A very great famine caused by pestilence, will extend its length to the arctic pole: Samarobrin one hundred leagues from the hemisphere, They will live without law, free from government.

Mark:  I guess we don’t have to be linguistic scholars to understand what Nostradamus was writing about. So that brings me back to my question at the beginning of this Podcast. How close do you think we are to the time of the end?

Well I do have some thoughts about that Mark. As I have pointed out many times in previous discussions, I believe that the Middle East is the powder keg that will light the fires of tribulation. So it is to the Middle East that we need to look for a likely timetable of events.

Back in January of this year, you may recall that we had a conversation entitled “Hail to the Chief”. In that conversation I said that I thought that Donald Trump could well be the last President of the United States, and that his actions could lead to the destruction of America and the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

The test would be whether Trump followed through with his promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from its present location in Tel Aviv to the contested city of Jerusalem. And as we all know by now, he went ahead and announced his plan to do this earlier this month.

At the time, I said that if he did so, this would lead to a firestorm of opposition throughout the Arab and Islamic world that would be directed at Israel and America. And that could in turn lead to a unified movement determined to wipe out the nation of Israel once and for all.

We shall have to wait and see whether the predictable outcry from Moslem and Arab nations will lead to the sort of action that the Bible predicts. But what we can say with assurance is that from an end-time prophetic point of view, the countdown has begun.

How much longer we still have to wait depends on a variety of factors. There is much more that I would like to say on this subject Mark, but to do justice to it would take a lot more time, so do you mind if we leave this to our next Podcast?

Mark:  Not at all Allan. I appreciate everything that you have said so far, and look forward to our next discussion. You have been listening to Allan Colston, author of the book The Last Days of Tolemac.  Do join us for Part Two of our Podcast, which will be another in the series titled “Signs of the Times”.

Allan, AUDIO, Signs of the Times, December 13, 2017, 9:27 pm

Podcast # 35 – It’s About Time

My name is Mark Stevens.  I am talking today with Allan Colston. He is the author of The Last Days of Tolemac, which is a book dealing with prophecy and other end-time events.

For those listeners who may be new to this topic, this is another in the series “Signs of the Times”.  Welcome to the Podcast Allan. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you.

No problem. Good to be with you again Mark.

Mark:  You’ll remember that in our last Podcast we talked about end-time events, and whether the world as we know it may be coming to an end. I asked the question: If that really is the case, then why us, and why now?

I recall it well Mark. And I answered by saying that I had a simple answer to your question. Do you remember what I said?

Mark:  You said: It’s about time.

That’s correct. So what do you think I meant by that?

Mark:  Well Allan, I assumed you were making a joke along the lines of – well it’s about time that God put an end to all the evil in the world.

That’s not a bad assessment of the current world situation Mark. But I wasn’t making a corny comment in passing. I was actually referring to time itself – or more specifically – how we measure time. For example, we measure time by the movements of the earth in space.

We measure the length of a day by the time it takes for the earth to complete a single rotation of its axis, and the length of a year by the time it takes for the earth to complete a full orbit around the sun. From there we further subdivide time into months, days, hours, minutes and seconds.

But ancient cultures didn’t just think of time in terms of months and years. They thought of time in cycles of tens of thousands of years, which they called “ages” and “eras”. And they attached special meanings to these cycles that are quite different from the way we think of time today.

But before I go into these differences in more detail, I need to explain the difference between “esoteric” time and “exoteric” time. Perhaps the best way to do this is to refer to chapter 3 of the gospel of St. John, where the disciple describes a meeting between Jesus and a Pharisee named Nicodemus.

Nicodemus asked Jesus how a man could enter into the kingdom of God. When Jesus replied by saying that no one could see the kingdom of God unless he was born again, Nicodemus expressed amazement, and asked how it was possible for a man to enter again into his mother’s womb.

When it became clear that Nicodemus had no idea what he was talking about, Jesus replied with equal amazement, asking him: “Art thou a master of Israel and knoweth not these things?”. He then went on to make a statement that goes to the heart of my reply to you.

“If I have told you earthly things and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you of heavenly things”. So what Jesus was saying to Nicodemus was that, if he was unable to understand matters relating to the material world, then how could he expect to understand his answers to spiritual matters.

Because we live in materialistic age which takes no account of non-material things, we pay little heed today to the words of spiritual sages, or even to Shakespeare, who wrote in his play Hamlet: “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy”.

Why I mention that excerpt from the Bible is that we are accustomed to explaining the things that we see and sense around us in purely material terms. And what Jesus was saying to Nicodemus was that there are other ways of looking at life, and that is in “heavenly” terms.

Within the occult (or hidden) tradition of the world, there is “exoteric” knowledge and there is “esoteric” knowledge. Exoteric knowledge is designed to be understood by the general public, while “esoteric” knowledge is intended only for the select few.

And what I want to discuss in this Podcast Mark, is knowledge that has largely remained hidden from the general public, and has only been divulged to genuine seekers of the truth. So my answer to your question Mark, relates to esoteric time rather than exoteric time.

So let me start by asking you a question of my own. What do you know about the phenomenon of the “precession of the equinoxes”?

Mark:  Well I know that it has something to do with astronomy, but I am a little hazy on the details. Perhaps you can fill me in.

Certainly Mark. As you say, the precession of the equinoxes is a term used by astronomers. It describes a cycle of time during which the various constellations that make up the zodiac appear to rotate slowly behind the rising sun at the time of each new spring equinox.

The reason why this phenomenon occurs is because, as it rotates on its axis, the earth has a very slight wobble. It is rather like a spinning top which wobbles slightly from side to side as it spins. And as the earth wobbles, it appears as if the position of the sun is changing in our skies.

What this means is that at the time of the spring equinox, the sun appears to move very slightly westward against the background stars. This movement is very slow, and only completes a full revolution roughly every 26,000 years. The Greeks referred to this cycle of time as a “Platonic” year.

What is truly remarkable about this precession of the equinoxes, is that while modern astronomers have only known about this phenomenon for a few hundred years, ancient cultures have known about it for literally tens of thousands of years.

And although we have no written record describing this precessionary cycle before the Greeks, we know from the writings of Aristotle that ancient cultures not only knew about this phenomenon, but they incorporated this knowledge in the designs of their sacred structures.

According to the mystery schools of Egypt and Babylon, this knowledge was held to be sacred, and was only transmitted by word of mouth, and then only to those who had been initiated into the sacred mysteries which these schools were designed to protect.

These ancient cultures were the first to divide the sky into twelve equal parts, and to christen the constellations that were prominent in each part. These constellations have come down to us today as the twelve signs of the zodiac. And each sign of the zodiac held a secret and sacred meaning.

So according to the time-clock of the precession of the equinoxes, it would take roughly 2,160 years for the earth to move from one sign of the zodiac to another. Each of these segments was called an “age”, and the time it took to complete the entire cycle was referred to as an “era”.

Mark:  So how does this relate to what is going on in the world today?

Well Mark, the mystery schools of ancient cultures dating back to the time of Sumeria, taught that the history of the earth could not only be measured in terms of these precessionary cycles or “ages”, but that each age was influenced by those constellations that characterised each zodiacal sign.

Based on this knowledge, and guided by the constellations visible behind the sun at the time of the spring equinox, we know that the “age of Pisces” has recently come to an end, and that we have now entered the “age of Aquarius”. And we can project these cycles of time backwards as well.

The age of Pisces was preceded by the age of Aries (the Ram), and before that came the age of Taurus the Bull, Gemini the Twins, Cancer the Crab and Leo the Lion. And the mystery schools of Egypt taught that the great Sphinx at Giza was constructed in the age of Leo, roughly 12,500 years ago.

According to this esoteric history of time, the last 2,000 years or so have been dominated by the astrological sign of Pisces, represented by the sign of the fishes. Why this is significant, is because it relates to the date on which Jesus was born.

Christians everywhere celebrate the birth of Jesus on the 25th of December each year. This was the date selected by Pope Julius 1, shortly after the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great announced that Christianity would become the official religion of Rome in the 4th century AD.

But there are numerous indicators to suggest that Jesus was not born during the winter, but in the early spring, under the astrological sign of Pisces, which runs from February 19 to March 20. One of these is that early Christians used the sign of the fishes to identify their followers.

Another indicator is that Joseph and Mary travelled to Bethlehem to register for the census ordered by Caesar Augustus, and he would have been unlikely to have issued this decree in the middle of winter, when temperatures often dropped below freezing and the roads were in poor condition.

Also, St. Luke writes in his gospel that when Jesus was born, there were shepherds in the fields watching over their flocks by night. Again, since it is cold and rainy in Judea during the month of December, it is unlikely that shepherds would have been in the fields at that time of year.

But the main reason why Pope Julius chose December 25th as the birth-date of the Christ, was because the time of the mid-winter solstice had long been associated with a popular Pagan festival. So by choosing this date, the Pope was able to replace the old Pagan festival with a new Christian tradition.

But there was also something significant about the date of his birth, which was the reason why it attracted the attention of the three wise men from the East mentioned in the Bible. And that was that, at the time that Jesus was born, there was a highly unusual alignment of planets in the sky.

And the reason I mention this Mark, is that a similarly unusual alignment of planets occurred in February 1962. And this was the date when esoteric astrologers had predicted that the age of Pisces would come to an end, and the new age of Aquarius would begin.

Mark:  What sort of alignment of planets are you referring to?

Monday, February 5, 1962, was one of the most significant days in the history of the earth. For starters, there was a total eclipse of the sun on that day. And as we have recently seen, the moon blocks out the light of the sun in certain parts of the earth. But that was just the beginning.

There was something else that would not happen again for another 25,000 years. For on that day the sun and moon, together with the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were all grouped together within 16 degrees of one another in the same sign of the zodiac.

The sign they were grouped in was Aquarius. And according to the esoteric tradition, this was not just a transition from one age to another. It represented the end of an era and the beginning of a completely new cycle of life, not just on earth, but in the entire solar system.

So the year 1962 did not just represent the transition from one 2,100 year cycle to another. It represented the end of a 25,000 year “era”, and the beginning of an entirely new era. And this new era would not just be a continuation of the past, but the start of something completely new.

So when you asked me why the earth as we know it might be coming to an end, I answered by saying that it was about time. So do you understand now what I was referring to Mark, and how this relates to climate change?

Mark:  I guess I am beginning to get the drift of it. But perhaps you could explain to me again how this relates to climate change.

Certainly Mark. In Part Four of my Blog entry entitled “An Inconvenient Truth”, I mentioned that American investigative journalist Marjorie Tietjen had written an article concerning chemtrails in which she posed the question: “Who is doing this – and why? And how long will they keep doing it?”

She went on to write that on the very day that her article appeared online, she received a long letter from an anonymous source that began with the words “I know what chemtrails are and their purpose”. And in this reply, the anonymous source included the following information.

“As long ago as the early 1940s, some physicists and astronomers began to notice a pattern of change coming over the sun. It did not become more pronounced until the new millennium arrived.

“Scientists, some working for the military or the federal government, began to think the unthinkable: the sun and all the planets were beginning a massive transformation.

“This transformation is unstoppable, potentially catastrophic to life and will most certainly cause the Earth’s environment to experience abrupt changes on a massive scale.

“Because the sun and all the planets together are reacting to this outside phenomenon, it is beginning to be suspected that some trans-dimensional energy in this region of space is interacting with the normal activity of the sun and the planets.

“Hyper-dimensionalism or trans-dimensional energy transference, call it what you will, this phenomenon seems to be at the root of the system-wide disaster unfolding right before our eyes. It is only the beginning, perhaps the beginning of the end”.

So it is clear from this reply that by the latter part of the 20th century, scientists had become aware that the entire solar system was reacting to “some trans-dimensional energy” that was coming from outside the solar system, and that this was “potentially catastrophic to life”.

Now if you don’t mind, Mark, I’d like to compare this with the words of the Oracle of Tolemac that I quoted in my book.

Mark:  Sure Allan, carry on.

“The ancient priests of Tolemac knew that space was not empty, but was filled with dynamic fields of energy. They knew that as the solar system moved through space it would constantly come in contact with these different fields of energy.

“They knew that the energy fields through which the solar system would pass during the age of Aquarius would be totally different from those it had encountered in the previous age of Pisces. As a result, the entire earth would be transformed by these new energies.

“The most obvious signs of these new energies would be seen in the weather, as well as in the overall climatic conditions on the earth. Some of these changes would be for the better, while others would be destructive. The very forces of nature would appear to be out of control for a time”.

So Mark, do you see the correlation between these two sources of information, one “exoteric” and the other “esoteric”? And do you see the link between this new “trans-dimensional energy” coming from outer space, and the climatic changes now taking place upon the earth?

Mark:  I do now. But why would these changes be destructive?

Perhaps it would be clearer if I referred once again to the words of the Oracle:

“If the past history of the earth had been one of peaceful coexistence and harmony with all forms of life, this passage of earth from the age of Pisces into the age of Aquarius would have been one of great beauty and joy.

“But because the age of Pisces has been dominated by constant cycles of aggression, oppression and war, there must be a “karmic cleansing” before the golden age on earth can begin”.

Mark:  So what do you think he means by the words “karmic cleansing”?

Again Mark, let me answer you in the words of the Oracle as they were relayed in my book:

“The entire universe operates under the law of cause and effect. All life is bound by this law. Every action that a person takes in life has a specific result or consequence. This result or consequence is referred to in the East by the name of “Karma”. Positive actions generate positive results and negative actions produce negative results.

“Throughout their lives people are constantly confronted by the results of their actions. If these actions help others, they will be helped in return. If they harm others, they will be harmed in return.

“Every action returns to its source. The path to happiness in life lies in creating happiness in others. Those who are responsible for creating violence, oppression or injustice will reap the consequences of their actions. This is the universal law.

“These karmic consequences may not happen immediately. They may take many years to appear. In some cases they may even be carried over into other lifetimes.

“But whether it is in this lifetime or the next all accounts have to be squared before the universal balance is restored. The pathway to Everlasting Light is an evolutionary process. The purpose of life is to teach people, lifetime by lifetime, the consequences of their actions.

“In the history of a planet, the circumstances that occur at any particular stage are the result of the combined actions of all those people living on the planet at that time. Nature usually has long periods of time in which to balance these karmic accounts.

“But there are occasions when these actions need to be balanced in a very short span of time. Because the earth has reached the end of a Great Cycle in the cosmic plan, there needs to be an overall balance of karma before the new age can begin to manifest its divine potential.

“This is what we mean by “karmic cleansing”. We can see the beauty of this plan, for if this cleansing did not take place, the new age would still be bound by the conditions of the past and a new golden age on earth would not be possible”.

How does this cleansing take place?

“This cleansing takes place when a planet releases the negative energies that have been stored in its karmic atmosphere over time. Natural forces such as earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes are nature’s way of releasing the negativity that has been built up in the past.

“The “fault lines” that exist in various places on the earth act as receivers for much of this negativity, and earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are the earth’s natural way of releasing this negativity. That is why humanity is responsible for the harmful weather conditions that occur on the earth.

“The new energies that are radiating throughout the solar system are responsible for bringing about this cleansing, so that the earth can begin the new age in balance once more.

“There is so much negative energy that is still locked up in the earth. This negativity has been building up for thousands of years. It must be released before the earth can be healed.

“The people of earth need to understand what is happening to their planet, and why it is happening, because this cleansing will take the form of severe earthquakes, hurricanes and other cataclysmic effects”.

Why is it necessary to undergo all these disasters?

“It is not necessary to undergo all these disasters. If your societies had followed the teachings of the wise men and women of the past, your world would not be in the state it is today and the earth would not have to undergo these catastrophic changes.

“If that had happened then the changes would have been harmonious and beautiful. There would have been no need for these disasters. It is man’s own thinking that is the cause of the consequences that must now unfold upon the earth.

“It is his selfishness, his greed and his callous disregard for the welfare of those who share the world with him that are the causes of these catastrophes. For century after century humanity has suffered because of man’s inhumanity to man. But this will come to an end at last.

“The chaos and disaster that will soon engulf the earth is tragic. But it would be even worse if this suffering was allowed to continue.

“The catastrophes that are to come are not some sort of divine revenge for the evil and injustice that have taken place on earth. They are merely the natural consequences of your own thoughts and actions, and the way you have chosen to live your lives.

“Catastrophe comes so that man may experience the consequences of his actions. If these consequences seem harsh it is because the actions that are the causes of these catastrophes have been equally harsh. But out of this harshness will come great beauty and good.

“For out of these catastrophes will come a new humanity. One that has been chastened and purified. They will inherit the new heaven and the new earth that has been prepared for them. They will be cleansed from the evils of the past, and be free at last to fulfil their divine potential”.

Mark:  All that sounds fine Allan, but the process of getting from where we are now to what is coming in the future seems pretty scary to me.

It might seem so Mark, but we should always bear in mind the following words of the Oracle:

“We want you to know that everything that is happening on your planet at this time is part of a plan. This is the great Cosmic Plan that will lead you into the coming golden age.

“The moment is at hand when the earth will take the greatest evolutionary step that humanity will ever witness. Never before in the history of earth will there be changes as profound as those which now await you.

“For you have reached that point in your history when many will face the same conditions that occurred on that far-off day in Tolemac, when the earth shook, the waters rose, the land fell, and the people cried out in terror, for fear that they would be destroyed.

“We want you to go forward to meet these changes with joy and understanding, rather than in fear and denial.

“For if you surround yourselves with love, and consciously project this love to others, these changes will not harm you. But if you surround yourself with fear, you will attract the very thing that you fear, and that can destroy you”.

Mark:  Well Allan, I must say that whenever we get together you fill me with alarm. But at the same time you give me so much to think about as well.

You have been listening to Allan Colston, author of the book The Last Days of Tolemac.  Do join us for our next Podcast, which will be another in the series titled “Signs of the Times”.

Podcast # 34 – The Tilting Axis

My name is Mark Stevens.  I am talking today with Allan Colston. He is the author of The Last Days of Tolemac, which is a book dealing with prophecy and other end-time events.

For those listeners who may be new to this topic, this is another in the series “Signs of the Times”.  Welcome to this Podcast Allan. I’m delighted to be able to chat to you again.

It’s my pleasure Mark.

Mark:  So much has happened since our last Podcast just a few weeks ago about climate change, that I feel like I owe you an apology.

Why is that Mark?

Mark:  Well I started off that discussion by asking you whether you really believe that the changes that are taking place in the earth’s climate today are as serious as you make them out to be?

And now, as a result of the devastating hurricanes of the last few weeks, it is obvious that our weather is a far greater hazard than I had ever imagined. So I am sorry that I doubted you.

Well I certainly don’t derive any satisfaction from it all Mark. The graphic scenes shown on TV lately have been absolutely devastating, and my heart goes out to all those who have had to live through these experiences, not only in the United States but in the Caribbean as well.

It’s not just the fact that so many people have been caught up in these disasters. What makes it worse is that for many thousands of those who have lost everything, their time of tribulation predicted in the Bible has already begun, for they will never regain what they have lost.

And it is not as if these extreme hurricanes are rare events that only happen once or twice a century. There now seems every likelihood that these extreme weather events will continue to happen, not just with increasing frequency, but with increasing ferocity. So things may get even worse.

What made hurricanes Harvey, Irma and others so devastating was their size as well as their windspeed. Harvey dumped more rain on the state of Texas than any other hurricane in recorded US history, while Irma was so large that it ultimately covered the entire state of Florida.

And the key factor in both these cases was heat, because the oceans that spawned them were hotter than ever before. Hurricane Irma was formed in tropical waters off the coast of Africa, and from there travelled west into the Caribbean where sea temperatures were 90 degrees or more.

And hurricane Harvey continued to rotate around the Texas coast for days on end, sucking up moisture from the equally hot waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and then dumping it on the city of Houston, which then experienced record floods.

As climatologists are now discovering, the earth’s circulation system is getting hotter, with predictable consequences. As the climate warms, so evaporation rates go up which then leads to increasing precipitation. More moisture is drawn up into the clouds, which then falls as rain.

But not all places are being affected equally. Although the overall temperature of the air may be getting warmer, it is not uniform in the way it affects the planet, since the hotter air over the land is not evaporating as much moisture as the air over the oceans.

So while the humidity on the land rises, often creating intolerable living conditions for people living in those parts of the world as it does so, this does not necessarily lead to rain. Instead, these places often experience extended droughts, as we are already seeing in different parts of the world.

So the reality is that hurricanes like Harvey and Irma may not just happen once or twice in a lifetime. Instead they may become routine in years to come. And the periodic droughts that scour the land may soon turn entire food-growing areas of the world into dustbowls.

And this of course just brings us back to the same basic equation. The earth and the oceans are getting hotter because the sun is getting hotter. And as we discussed in our previous Podcast, the sun is getting hotter because of increased cosmic radiation coming from beyond the solar system.

Mark:  When you put it like that, I can see why you wrote in your Blog that the earth is threatened with extinction. But I still can’t get my head around the idea that the entire history of mankind could suddenly come to an end.

Surely you don’t think that our entire civilization might become extinct, after thousands of years of progress, from cavemen up to the scientific age in which we live today?

Actually Mark, I do. And the reason I say that is because it has it has happened before. And not just once, but many times. This may come as a shock to many people. Entire civilizations have disappeared without trace. After all, we have only to look at the Bible to find evidence of this.

In the 7th verse of chapter 6 of the book of Genesis, we read how the Lord said: “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.”

And what strikes me as particularly pertinent is the reason the Bible gives why God did this. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”. Ring any bells Mark?

While most people tend to treat the Biblical account of a world-wide flood as a fanciful legend, more and more evidence is emerging to suggest that this is exactly what took place many thousands of years ago. This evidence is now being found in every corner of the world.

Our scholars and scientists are taught that the first stirrings of civilization began in Mesopotamia some six thousand years ago, and yet we find megalithic structures all over the world that were obviously built many thousands of years before that.

Elsewhere on my Blog I have referred to the work of Boston geologist Robert Schoch indicating that the body of the sphinx in Egypt shows signs of erosion that could only have been caused by prolonged exposure to water. He believes that the sphinx is at least 11,000 years old.

Even Darwin was confronted with evidence of global catastrophe when he wrote in his Journal of Researches: “Certainly, no fact in the long history of the world is so startling as the wide and repeated exterminations of its inhabitants. What, then, has exterminated so many species and whole genera?

“The mind at first is irresistibly hurried into the belief of some great catastrophe; but thus to destroy animals, both large and small, in Southern Patagonia, in Brazil, on the Cordillera of Peru, in North America up to Behring’s Straits, we must shake the entire framework of the globe.”

Despite clear fossil evidence of animals, both large and small, that had been wiped out from Southern Patagonia all the way up to the Bering Straits, Darwin could not bring himself to believe that “the entire framework of the globe” could have been shaken by a world-wide catastrophe.

Yet if he had continued his journey to Easter Island in the central Pacific Ocean, he would have seen huge stone effigies called Moai that were buried up to their necks in sand, that was clearly deposited by some ancient flood long after these statues were carved.

And then there are the ancient megalithic ruins of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, and Puma Punku in Bolivia. Both of these sites were also covered by soil that had been deposited over them at some time in the distant past, indicating that they too had once been overcome by a giant flood.

All of this points to the fact that some unimaginable disaster engulfed the world about 13,000 years ago, leaving nothing but stray stone remnants of the cultures that had created them, and of whom we know virtually nothing. However, later cultures did leave some tantalising written records.

Mark:  What sort of records are you referring to?

The idea that the earth has undergone a succession of catastrophic upheavals was not limited to the Jews, the Greeks and the Egyptians. In central America, the Maya had legends of their own describing times when the earth was convulsed by cosmic encounters.

While these stories vary in the number of ages that have come and gone, they all agree that at periodic intervals various disasters have assailed the earth causing widespread destruction. The agents of this destruction have been earthquakes, hurricanes and floods, as well as “fire from the sky”.

The Chinese believed that there had been ten different ages from the beginning of the world up to the time of Confucius. They referred to these vanished ages as Kis, and their ancient encyclopedia described these past eras in the following words:

In a general convulsion of nature, the sea is carried out of its bed, mountains spring out of the ground, rivers change their course, human beings and everything are ruined, and the ancient traces effaced”.

The sacred Hindu book Bhagavata Purana called these past ages Kalpas or Yugas, and indicated that there had been four previous ages of mankind, and that each of these different ages had ended as a result of a different kind of catastrophe.

The ancient Buddhist scripture called the Visuddhi-Magga, which was written about 430 BC, described these different kinds of catastrophe as follows: “There are three destructions: the destruction by water, the destruction by fire, and the destruction by wind”.

Even the Greeks had an extinction story of their own. According to their mythology, Phaeton asked his father Helios, the sun god, if he could drive the chariot of the sun across the sky. Unfortunately, he drove it too close to the earth, causing his father to kill him with a thunderbolt.

In a passage recorded by Plato in his essay entitled Timaeus, when the Athenian statesman Solon visited Egypt some six hundred years before the birth of Christ, an elderly priest said to him:

“Oh Solon, Solon, you Greeks are all children, and there is no such thing as an old Greek. You are all young in mind. You have no belief rooted in the old tradition and no knowledge hoary with age. And the reason is this. There have been and will be many different calamities to destroy mankind, the greatest of them by fire and water, lesser ones by countless other means.

“Your own story of how Phaeton, child of the sun, harnessed his father’s chariot, but was unable to guide it along his father’s course and so burnt up things on earth and was himself destroyed by a thunderbolt, is a mythical version of the truth that there is at long intervals a variation in the course of the heavenly bodies and a consequent widespread destruction by fire of things on the earth”.

But that’s not all Mark. Another famous Greek, this time Herodotus, who has been called the “Father of History”, visited Egypt for himself and recorded his own conversations that he had with various Egyptian priests. This is what he wrote in his Second Book of History:

“The priests asserted that within historical ages and since Egypt became a kingdom, four times in this period (so they told me) the sun rose contrary to his wont; twice he rose where he now sets, and twice he set where he now rises.”

Mark:  Well done Allan, I must congratulate you on your knowledge of ancient literature. I had no idea about all this.

Well Mark, I have to concede that everything I know about this comes from Immanuel Velikovsky. He was the great Jewish scholar who devoted years of his life to researching the historical texts of many ancient cultures, and they tell a very different story from what we are taught today.

But the reason I bring this up is because there appears to be a sinister parallel between what was recorded in ancient times, and what we are observing in our skies today. Not only is something very strange happening to our sun, but to the axis of the earth as well.

For if those Egyptian priests who spoke to Herodotus were correct, and the sun actually did change its course and rise in the west instead of the east, this could only mean that, at some point within the living memory of humanity, the earth flipped upside down. And not once, but several times!

In other words, the earth turned on its axis by 180º – something that modern astronomers believe to be impossible. But just suppose that those ancient Egyptian priests were correct and the earth did flip on its axis. And if it happened then, could it also happen now?

As every child is taught in school today, the earth does not spin vertically on its own axis. It tilts to one side, and it is this tilt that accounts for the different seasons that we experience on the earth. And for the last several thousand years, this angle of tilt has remained pretty much the same.

Today the earth’s axis is tilted roughly 23.5 degrees from the plane of its orbit around the sun. So from the point of view of people on the earth, the sun appears to move between the tropic of Cancer in the north, and the tropic of Capricorn in the south.

However, this angle of tilt does change slightly over time, and over a period of about 41,000 years it varies between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees. However, this tiny correction could never cause the sun to appear to change its course and rise in the west instead of the east, as the Egyptian priests claimed.

But this is where things become, as I say, a little sinister Mark, because I keep coming across reports that suggest that the axis of the earth may be changing. And although these changes may be small for now, they could become a lot greater in the days to come.

Mark:  What sort of changes are you talking about?

Well Mark, you won’t find any mention of this in the press, and certainly nothing about it in any scientific reports. But people who have lived in the same location for many years are beginning to report things that don’t seem quite right.

As I have mentioned before, if you want to know what is really going on in the world today, it is often more instructive to listen to ordinary citizens than the Government. And the best place to do this is to check out the comments on YouTube videos dealing with changes in the sun.

I have made a habit of doing this ever since I became interested in the subject of axial tilt. Here are a few examples of what people have been reporting lately about changes they have noticed in the path of the sun. I am quoting them exactly as they were written.

I’m in Upstate N.Y. I’ve lived in the same home for 45 years. My kitchen windows face due north. The Sun now sets shining into my north facing windows. Noticed it last year a little, but now it’s very noticeable!

I’m in Southern Michigan and have been noticing the changes in the sun location as well as the stars. The Earth is tilting to the South. That would likely be the reason for the melting of the North Pole as well. Not necessarily global warming, but a global shifting of the poles.

Down in New Zealand (North Island) it is the same – rising in north-east and setting NNW! Back room gets no sun as it is lying south! Solar panels were put up in 2015 (Dec) and don’t make power like they used to, even with it being winter! Nothing normal. Blinds on the east were made to shade – sun doesn’t shine on true east now!

I live up in Northern Michigan on Torch lake, and things are way off. It’s been very cold and way too much precipitation. My north deck now gets sun all day. We also had to move our solar panels from the south side of our house to the north side. Things are definitely changing.

I live in NW Indiana and I have followed the signs of the times and events of the days for several years now. I am certain that the sun is setting much farther north than in years past.

Am in Lower Michigan Battle Creek area. The Sun surely has been rising and setting so far North that the North side of my house now gets sun on it. I usually have to power-wash the moss off it because the sun never hit it. Not this year.

Here in UK Somerset we used to watch the sunsets from our back garden for as long as I can remember, but now the sunsets are only visible from the front of the house [north]!!

This is true for me too. I’m in Grandview Missouri. I’ve noticed that sun is setting way far to the north, like in northwest instead of west.

The Inuit in the Arctic have been saying this for the last few years. I watch the sun set into the Pacific Ocean from Costa Rica and the sun now sets a solid 30 degrees further north than it did 10 years ago. At its most northern set on the June 21st solstice it would set into the ocean from off the point of Playa Coyote. Now when it sets on this date it now touches the horizon on land a full 30 degrees further north than it used to.

Mark:  This does sound suspicious Allan, but we can’t draw any significant conclusions from a few comments on YouTube.

Quite right Mark. However, if these comments indicate that the sun really is following a different path in the sky, then it could only be because the axial tilt of the earth is changing. And there does seem to be scientific evidence that this is happening.

About a year ago, NASA scientists reported that the axis of the earth appeared to be shifting. According to University of Tasmania geodesist Matt King, NASA found that the axis had shifted dramatically from its long-term path, first in 2005, and then again in 2012.

These scientists concluded that the reason for this was that global warming was causing hundreds of billions of tons of ice to melt, particularly in Greenland and the Arctic ocean, and that this loss rate was two to three times more than it had been between 2003 and 2009.

This differential in the weight of ice at the geographical North and South poles was causing the axis of the earth to wobble. And although the extent of this wobble was still relatively small, no one could predict what might happen in the years to come.

I am reminded here of an episode I heard on the popular late-night radio talk show “Coast to Coast AM” several years back, in which listeners were invited to submit examples of any dreams or visions they had about the future. George D. in Vancouver, B.C. had this to say:

“I see the obliquity of Earth’s axis changing due to the melting of polar ice, shifting trillions upon trillions of tons of earth’s mass towards the equator, which causes the continental plates to shift”. He then went on to add:

“An abrupt ending to Mid-Eastern wars and current global conflicts occurs – due to massive earthquakes as the continental plates shift from their present location. Many nations and islands will be obliterated. Food shortages and lack of fresh water will escalate, affecting all people on earth”.

Remember, the authorities are not telling us what is really going on. As I have pointed out on my Blog, they routinely understate the intensity of UV radiation so as not to alarm the public. Could something similar be happening with changes in the axis of the earth?

But if you don’t mind Mark, I’d like to go back to the beginning of my article on climate change titled “An Inconvenient Truth”. I quoted the words of Richard Leakey, the renowned Kenyan paleoanthropologist, who had this to say about the environmental crisis facing the world.

Mark:  Certainly. What did he have to say?

“If you look at the fossil record, the thing that strikes you is that extinction is the most common phenomena. Extinction is always driven by environmental change, and environmental change is always driven by climate change.”

Leakey went on to say that, according to the fossil record, over 95% of all the species that have ever lived upon the earth have become extinct. And the cause of all these deaths has been a succession of what he calls “extinction level events”.

So according to Leakey, while climate change may signal impending changes on the earth, it is the actual “extinction level event” that leads to all the casualties. And most often, these extinction events are caused by “fire from the sky”.

And this is where Bible prophecy comes in. For the Bible not only predicts the climate and environmental changes that we are seeing on the earth today, but it also describes an extinction level event that would destroy a large proportion of life on this planet.

In the 8th chapter of his Book of Revelation, St. John wrote:

“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; 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”.

And ever since that time, Biblical scholars have debated what it was that St. John was describing. The key for me Mark, is the fact that he describes this “great star from heaven” as “burning like a lamp”. In other words, it was glowing in the sky before it fell to earth.

This description makes it likely that Wormwood is a comet, especially since this interpretation is shared by mystics like Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, Mother Shipton and St. Hildegard. And if it is a comet, it would also explain all the other plagues described in the Book of Revelation.

Finally Mark, it is worth noting again the words of Jesus regarding events that will take place in the skies above the earth during the period leading up to his return, as recorded in chapter 21 verses 25 and 26 of St. Luke’s gospel.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken”.

The part that really stands out for me in this quotation is the reference to “men’s hearts failing them for fear”. What do you suppose Jesus was referring to that would cause men’s hearts to fail them with fear? Maybe the following story will provide us with a clue.

Remember when I referred to the radio talk show “Coast to Coast AM” earlier, in which listeners were invited to call in about any dreams or visions which they had about the future. Well, there was another caller from Canada named Lawrie. This is what he had to say.

“Back in 1995 I had this dream of this big huge planet-like sphere in the night sky and it was pulsing and very bright. We knew it was the end of our world as we know it.

“It was kind of scary, yet most amazing and we were in awe, and this entity was so huge and powerful that you just accepted it. The whole event was so real. It’s like the whole world came together to look up at this thing and we all realized that there was no stopping this”.

Mark:  That certainly is an interesting story. But I still can’t accept that the world as we know it might be coming to an end. And even if it is, I have a simple question. Why us, and why now?

Well Mark, I should make it clear that the world itself is not ending. It will carry on. But our cycle of civilization is definitely coming to an end. And out of the ruins of our civilization there will arise another that is more glorious than anything we can imagine.

But in answer to your simple question, I have a simple answer. It’s about time. That might sound trite, but it goes to the heart of why these events are happening at this time. Anyway, I will explain what I mean by that comment in more detail during our next conversation.

Mark:  I appreciate everything that you have discussed today, and look forward to hearing your answer to my question. You have been listening to Allan Colston, author of the book The Last Days of Tolemac.  Do join us for our next Podcast, which will be another in the series titled “Signs of the Times”.

Allan, AUDIO, Signs of the Times, September 18, 2017, 11:31 am

Podcast # 33 – An Inconvenient Truth

My name is Mark Stevens.  I am talking today with Allan Colston. He is the author of The Last Days of Tolemac, which is a book dealing with prophecy and other end-time events.

For those listeners who may be new to this topic, this is another in the series “Signs of the Times”.  So Allan, let me start by welcoming you to this Podcast. How have you been keeping?

Pretty well thanks. Keeping myself busy doing research and writing various articles that appear on my Blog. As I am sure you are aware Mark, we are certainly living in turbulent times.

Mark:  I’m glad you mentioned that. I just finished reading your Blog dealing with climate change, and my head is still spinning from some of the issues that you raised. Can we spend some time talking about them?

Certainly Mark. Where would you like to begin?

Mark:  Well I guess my first question is, do you really think that the changes that are taking place in the earth’s climate are as serious as you make them out to be?

Absolutely Mark. But before we get into that we need to be clear about the fact that there are two completely different scenarios that are unfolding at this time. The first is what most people on the planet THINK is going on, and the second is what is REALLY going on.

Let’s start off by talking about what people THINK is going on. As I pointed out in my Blog, the world owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Al Gore. He was the first prominent American to publicize the problem of climate change in his documentary entitled An Inconvenient Truth.

Up until 2006 when his movie was released, the attitude of the public was that climate change was a problem that was too big for any individual to solve, and therefore needed to be dealt with at government level by those countries that were the biggest polluters.

Although Rachel Carson can probably be called the true founder of the environmental movement through the publication of her book Silent Spring in 1962, it was Al Gore who focussed public attention directly on the problem of climate change.

He personalised this issue by pointing out that every individual contributed to this problem, and therefore bore a moral responsibility for changing their own behaviour in ways that would reduce their carbon footprint, and thus improve their own environment.

And since that time, an entirely new movement has emerged, and that is the so-called “green” revolution. Now I am not referring to the global movement of the 1960’s that was designed to increase agricultural production as a way of dealing with the threat of widespread famine.

I am talking about the growing movement, particularly within Western societies, towards “clean and green” technology, as well as a desire to align activities according to the needs of the environment, rather than at the expense of the environment. Much of this can also be attributed to Al Gore.

His view, which has subsequently been adopted by 195 countries that were signatories to the Paris Accord in November, 2016, is that burning fossil fuels have led to a dramatic increase in carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, and that this is to blame for the “greenhouse effect” that is heating the planet.

Today most climatologists believe that humanity is to blame for global warming, and that unless we change our behaviour, the world is going to get hotter and hotter. The unfortunate truth is that while they correct about the consequences, they are completely wrong in their diagnosis.

Mark:  So are you saying that these scientists don’t understand the real cause of climate change?

Exactly. But what is worse Mark, is that because global warming is NOT caused by human activity, NOTHING that these scientists do to reduce the use of carbon fuels is going to have the slightest effect in improving the situation on the surface of the earth.

That doesn’t mean that greenhouse gases don’t pose a problem for society. They do. They pollute the atmosphere and cause all sorts of diseases and lung problems. For these reasons alone it is worth limiting the use of carbon-based fuel. But this has nothing to do with global warming.

The fact is that greenhouse gases are a POLLUTION problem. And while anything that we can do to improve the environment by reducing the amount of pollutants in our air and water is admirable, this by itself will do nothing to solve the problem of global warming.

The sad fact is that most people are completely unaware of the true cause of climate change. And the reason this is sad Mark, is because the authorities who know that mankind is not to blame, also know that if the truth ever became known, it would cause widespread panic all over the world.

That is why the Secret Government has gone to such extreme lengths to keep the truth hidden. They know that international efforts like the Paris Accord help to deflect public attention away from the real cause of climate change, as well as what they themselves are doing about it.

Mark:  So tell me Allan, what is the real cause of climate change?

Well Mark, the reason why I devoted so much space to this in my Blog, is because I feel strongly that no matter how bad things may happen to be, we all have an inalienable right to know what is REALLY going on in the world, even if certain authorities would prefer to hide the truth from us.

Obviously, they have their own agenda, which is to preserve law and order and prevent mass panic. And while one cannot argue against this, I feel an equally strong case can be made for making the truth available to all those who seek, so that they can make an informed choice about how to respond.

This is where the rubber meets the road. If I tell you what I know and you start sharing this information with other people, then before long the news will spread and the authorities will have no way of controlling the outcome. Hence their determination to hide the truth at all costs.

So by talking about this on a public forum Mark, we will inevitably attract the attention of those whose task is to silence whistle-blowers. And as I have already shown on my Blog, the consequences of doing so can be deadly.

But the reason that I am doing this now is because it fulfills ancient Bible prophecy. When the disciples asked Jesus what signs would signal the time of his return, his reply was recorded in verses 25- 26 of chapter 21 of the gospel of St. Luke:

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken”.

Jesus made it plain that when the time of his return drew near, there would be “signs in the sun”, and that is exactly what we are experiencing at this time. For according to the anonymous whistle-blower that I quoted in Part Four of my Blog, these changes began to be noticed some seventy years ago.

As far back as the 1940’s, certain physicists and astronomers began to notice a pattern of change coming over the sun. At first these changes were hardly noticeable, but then as the new millennium drew closer, they became more and more pronounced.

From the year 2,000 onwards, the sun’s activity has become increasingly unstable, and this has led to changes on the earth that have become increasingly threatening. But these changes have not been limited to the earth. They have affected other planets in our solar system as well.

Mark:  I noticed that you discussed these changes at length in your Blog.

The reason I did so Mark, was to emphasize the fact that all the planets in our solar system are being affected, although each in different ways. In the case of earth, the most dramatic sign is the change in our climate, and the steady increase in global warming.

But the sun is not just a source of heat and light. It not only affects our climate, but it also impacts almost every aspect of life on this planet. It affects human beings as well as every other species that lives upon the earth. And the changes that are occurring are truly alarming.

Climate is just one of the signs of the changes affected by the sun. Scientists have recently discovered that a new mass extinction is underway. Insect and animal migrations are changing all around the planet, as they try to adapt to these new climatic conditions.

Biological mutations have begun to erupt spontaneously within species that have no counterpart in history, and defy conventional explanation. One of the most disturbing examples of this is the discovery that human male sperm counts are dropping precipitously all around the world.

But it is not just male infertility that has been affected, but the entire division of the sexes as well. We no longer have a simple separation of the sexes into male and female, but we are witnessing an explosion of mixed genders, as can be seen from the entire LGBTQ community.

These changes are potentially catastrophic to life, and will almost certainly cause the earth’s environment to experience abrupt changes on a massive scale. Furthermore, this transformation appears to be unstoppable. It is also clear that these changes do not originate on the sun.

Because the sun is affected by this phenomenon along with all the other planets, those scientists who are in the know have concluded that the entire solar system is interacting with some previously unknown trans-dimensional energy that is coming from outer space.

In other words, these changes are being caused by radiation emanating from an area of space that we have never experienced before, as the solar system makes its slow orbit around the centre of our spiral galaxy. And this radiation is causing our sun to become more and more dangerous.

Mark:  I noticed that you also wrote about how the sun was becoming hotter, and was emitting higher amounts of dangerous ultraviolet radiation.

That’s right Mark. As I indicated in my Blog, scientists working for the Secret Government have discovered that changes in the climate of our planet, as well as increasing heat on land and in the ocean, are the direct result of increasing energy levels emanating from the sun.

In a nutshell, what this means is that scientific studies have now confirmed that the sun is getting hotter, and that it is also changing colour. Whereas up until about fifty years ago the sun was known for its golden glow, it has now become a white-hot ball in the sky.

And this changing colour has been accompanied by increasing amounts of ultraviolet radiation. Again, as I discussed in my Blog, the earth is being exposed to higher amounts of UV-B and UB-C radiation, which are the most dangerous forms of ultraviolet light.

One of the foremost investigators into this increase in UV radiation is California researcher Dane Wigington. He was one of the first people to buy his own UV meters to test whether the data provided by the authorities was correct. What he found was that it was being grossly understated.

Whereas climatologists agree that UV levels of 11 on the conventional UV index pose extreme risk of harm to human beings, Wigington found that his own measurements indicated that daily levels taken where he lived often reached levels that were far higher than this.

It became clear to him that authorities were routinely underestimating the true UV readings so as not to alarm the public. And the reason they did so, was because the sun was pumping out more and more dangerous UV radiation.

While much of the sun’s ultraviolet light is blocked by the ozone layer that surrounds the earth, recent changes in the ozone layer itself meant that more and more harmful UV rays were now reaching the earth and killing off coral reefs, fishes, and many other species.

As I indicated in my conclusion, the “inconvenient” truth about climate change is that the earth is dying. It is losing its ability to sustain life. Insects are dying. Trees and plants are dying. Birds and animals are dying. And all of this information is being hidden from the public.

Faced with this terrible truth, the Secret Government has responded by instigating one of the most ambitious environmental strategies in the history of the earth. They set about creating a thermal, anti-radiation barrier in the upper atmosphere just below the troposphere.

Mark:  That’s something that I wanted to ask you. Is there really a world-wide project involving “chemtrails” that has been secretly going on for years?

Yes Mark, there is. In fact, according to whistle-blowers, this programme began in the United States in 1997. Since then it has spread to all the major industrial countries of the world, and all the while news of this activity has been hidden under a cloak of secrecy.

The programme itself is designed to use high-flying military tanker jets to spread a cocktail of chemicals in the sky, in such a way as to create an aerial shield that is designed to protect the earth from harmful radiation emanating from the sun.

It did not take long for investigators to refer to this cocktail of chemicals in the sky as “chemtrails”, because although they look exactly like ordinary aircraft condensation trails while they are being sprayed, they actually contain a combination of different chemicals.

Analysis of their ingredients by private laboratories confirm that these “chemtrails” consist primarily of particles of Barium, Aluminum Oxide and Carbon Black, as well as smaller amounts of Chromium, Cadmium, Nickel, Ethylene Dibromide and radioactive Thorium.

It is also worth noting that because these particles are heavier than air, and would normally sink quickly to the ground, they are also mixed with various polymers, which help them to remain suspended in the atmosphere for longer periods of time.

It goes without saying that this toxic blend of chemicals sprayed all over the world is a double-edged sword. While it is designed as a desperate attempt to protect the earth by warding off harmful radiation from the sun, it is also bound to harm the immune systems of the sick, the elderly and the young.

It was also recognized that the presence of Aluminum Oxide particles in the air would lead to an increase in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease. However, this was deemed to be a small price to pay for the attempt to ensure the long-term survival of our civilization.

It was also known that the presence of Aluminum particles in the soil would adversely affect crop yields. In this context, it is interesting to note that the multi-national agrochemical company Monsanto, recently began marketing Aluminum resistant seeds.

And it is not just agricultural crops that are being threatened by this rain of aluminum particles falling from the sky. In forests all around the world, this coating of aluminum particles is causing wildfires to burn hotter and become more destructive than ever before.

Anyway Mark, the question that has always baffled the public is this. At a time when classified and confidential matters are routinely leaked to the press, if there really was a secret Government programme involving chemtrails, then how could they possibly keep this secret year after year?

And the answer to this conundrum is simple. The fact is that this aerosol spraying programme is not being conducted by the regular Government, but by the Secret Government. And they know how to keep secrets. It was a trick they learned and perfected over sixty years ago.

Mark:  And that brings me to the key question I’ve been wanting to ask you Allan. Who, or what, is the Secret Government that you keep referring to?

That’s a great question Mark. The usual amusing answer that security personnel like to give is this. I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you in case you turned me in for revealing classified information. Anyway, as I said, it all began soon after the end of the second World War.

In July 1947, a UFO crashed in the desert just outside the town of Roswell, New Mexico. Since that time, investigators have been divided into two camps. Some believe that this was a hoax perpetrated on a gullible public, while others are convinced that something unusual really happened.

What is beyond dispute is that when this came to the attention of President Truman, he formed a special committee to investigate the matter. It consisted of twelve people, made up of leaders of the various branches of the U.S. Military, together with a few select scientists.

When Dwight Eisenhower took over the Presidency from Truman, he expanded this original group of twelve to include laymen as well as leaders of industry, particularly those whose businesses were already involved in top-secret projects.

He also did something which changed the nature of this group from that time onwards. He initiated the concept of “plausible deniability”. This was done so that if news of their clandestine activities ever became public knowledge, he could truthfully say that he knew nothing about it.

Eisenhower arranged for their activities to be financed by a “black” budget that was classified “top-secret”. That meant that this Secret Government could do pretty much anything they wanted, without ever being accountable to Congress. And that is the way it has stayed ever since.

In time President Eisenhower came to regret his earlier decision. He realised that he had let a genie out of the bag that could no longer be constrained. And, in his farewell speech to the nation, he warned people to beware of the growing power of the “Military-Industrial-Complex”.

Because this group of twelve men initially consisted primarily of military leaders, it did not take them long to use military tactics to ensure secrecy and security. They did this by adopting a strategy that had served them well in the second World War. It was the policy of “compartmentalization”.

Operations were conducted on a “need to know” basis. Staff were only told what they needed to know for the task for which they were hired. They were under orders never to talk to others about what they did, even to those who worked alongside of them.

They were also bound by an oath of secrecy, which was policed by specially selected “guardians”, whose job it was to ensure that they never breached security. The penalties for anyone found guilty of revealing classified information were sufficiently harsh to ensure that staff never talked.

Over the years, the range of activities in which this Secret Government has become involved has grown ever larger. According to the CIA whistle-blower Kevin Shipp that I quoted in Part Three, their activities now extend to almost every agency of the Federal Government.

And as Shipp explained, these agencies require all people engaged in classified black budget projects to sign binding secrecy agreements (non-disclosure agreements) as a condition of employment, and that it is these agreements that have served as the ultimate tool in maintaining secrecy.

In addition to their ability to silence possible whistle-blowers from within, the Secret Government has also developed a slick PR campaign to deal with members of the public who asked embarrassing questions about unusual trails in the sky that were obviously not natural.

They used the same technique they had successfully developed all those years earlier when dealing with the subject of UFO’s. They would deny that any such clandestine campaign existed, and then brand all those who asked questions as cranks or “conspiracy theorists”.

“The whole thing is a hoax,” authorities would say when confronted, “and we don’t discuss hoaxes”. They simply dismissed the topic out of hand. And by treating the whole subject as a joke and by ridiculing anyone who tried to get serious answers to serious questions, even the press has been silenced.

But to cut a long story short, when it was discovered that the earth was threatened by harmful radiation coming from the sun, and that it was necessary to undertake a global aerosol dispersal programme, it was easy for the Secret Government to set this up, and ensure complete secrecy.

Mark:  It still find it hard to believe that this has been going on for all these years without the public knowing anything about it. By the way, you also wrote about underground and undersea bases. What can you tell us about them?

Well Mark, this is the other side of the coin, so to speak. When it became clear that the world was being threatened by increased levels of cosmic radiation coming from beyond the solar system, scientists like Edward Teller proposed creating an atmospheric shield to protect the earth.

But the effectiveness of this was always going to be problematic. Firstly, no-one knew if this shield would actually be effective. And secondly, even if it was, nobody could predict how long it might be needed. After all, the harmful radiation coming from outer space might continue for centuries.

The most practical solution therefore, was to build underground shelters, especially since many of them already existed from the days of the cold war with the Soviet Union. Besides, new developments like the nuclear-powered subterrene enabled engineers to do in months what previously took years.

So the Secret Government began to build underground shelters all over, or should I say under, the country. Initially, these shelters were built below military bases, but later on they became associated with places with easy public access, like Denver International airport.

According to whistle-blower Phil Schneider, who was one of those employed in building these bases, a new self-contained underground base is being completed every six weeks. So as you can imagine Mark, there are now literally hundreds of these shelters all across America.

Mark:  So who do you think are going to be living in these underground shelters?

Well Mark, it’s certainly not going to be you or me. They are being reserved primarily for the military, and for Federal and State officials who would be responsible for the continuation of government. Other people would be approved as needed to maintain equipment and machinery.

These people are given security ID cards which give details on how to access their nearest underground shelter, in the event of a national emergency. And as for the rest of us Mark, we would be left on the surface to fend for ourselves as best we could.

Bear in mind that these shelters would only be used if conditions on the ground became too dangerous, or if climatic conditions generated mass panic, or if the country was faced with some other calamity such as the threat of nuclear war.

Mark:  Anyway Allan, before we wrap up, my final question is this. How do you think this is all going to play out? What is going to happen to our planet? Are we all going to die?

Well if I knew the answers to those questions Mark, I would probably already have a lucrative job with the Secret Government. I think it is fair to say that nobody really knows for sure, although there is certainly no shortage of people and organisations who think they have the answer.

Although I am not a prophet, I have studied Bible prophecy for many years, so I can tell you what the Bible has to say on this subject. But I’m afraid it is not going to make you feel any better Mark. In fact, the problems posed by climate change will seem tiny in comparison.

Shortly before Jesus died on the cross, his disciples asked him what signs they should look out for during the “last days” prior to his promised return. What he told them is recorded in the gospels. And then there are the writings of St. John in his Book of Revelation.

Their predictions are a case of “good news” and “bad news”. The “bad news” is that the world will shortly undergo a seven-year period of tribulation, the likes of which it has never experienced before. During this time, most of the people who are alive on the earth today will die.

The agent of this destruction, and the event that will trigger the beginning of the seven years of tribulation, will be an asteroid that will strike the earth. St. John calls this asteroid a “great millstone”, and in the 8th chapter of his Book of Revelation he writes: “And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea”.

As I have pointed out in my Blog, I believe this asteroid will hit the ocean just west of Puerto Rico. The destruction caused by the impact of this asteroid will lead to the death of hundreds of millions of people within a matter of minutes, mainly due to giant Tsunamis generated by the shock waves of this impact, that will devastate coastlines and low-lying areas all around the world.

The great tribulation will end with the battle of Armageddon that is predicted to take place in the valley of Jezreel, close to the town of Megiddo in Israel. This final war will be fought between the forces of the Anti-Christ on the one hand, and the armies of the Prince of the East on the other.

But just when it seems as if the last remnant of humanity will be wiped off the face of the earth, this clash of armies will culminate in the long-awaited return of the Saviour, whose arrival will herald a new golden age, followed by a thousand years of peace, joy and tranquillity.

However, the “good news” of the Bible is that some people will be spared from these disasters. They will be miraculously taken out of their bodies to a place of safety, through a process that has come to be known as the “rapture”. These will be people whom the Bible calls the “chosen ones”.

But even those who miss out on the initial rapture will have a second chance. Those who manage to endure this time of tribulation and keep their faith intact without succumbing to the lure of the teachings of the Anti-Christ, are promised a golden crown upon the Saviour’s return.
