New Orleans is only the Beginning as Prophecy Unfolds

We are all very well aware of the tragedies occurring right now in the United States; particularly New Orleans. Yet, Bible Prophecy never leaves us to chance what is happening. In this issue I would like to bring your attention to two things the Bible states about America in Bible prophecy. First of all, is America identified in Bible Prophecy? Yes, indeed!

If you have a Bible, turn to Revelation 13:11. The Bible reads, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon." According to Daniel 7:23 beasts represent kingdoms. This kingdom is represented as coming out of the earth. In contrast, the first beast of Revelation 13 comes out of the water which represents a great multitude of people. For the Bible reads in Rev. 17:15: "The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues". Thus, the second beast coming out of the earth represents the exact opposite. America had been sparsely populated by the Indians before the late 1700's and by 1798 it was recognized as a world power with a new type of governments. According to Daniel 8:21 horns represent kings, kingdoms, or governments. Thus, the two horns is Rev 13:11 represent the two governing principles adopted by America: Civil & Religious Liberty. This is stated to be a government, "like a lamb". Why, because Jesus is the lamb according to John 1:29. Jesus advocates the freedom to worship without government interference. Wait, just a minute! Will this government that espouses PROTESTANT AMERICA change its course? According to Rev. 13:11 it will. The Bible reads, "He had two horns like a lamb, AND HE SPAKE AS A DRAGON. Thus, we can conclude that not just America, but PROTESTANT AMERICAN will speak as a dragon. The dragon is none other than Satan (Read Revelation 12:9).

Do you belong to a protestant church? Are they giving life to the first beast of Revelation 13? (For more info on the first beast of Rev.13 see By examining the scriptures on the great prophecy website, you will plainly see that the Papacy as an organization is CLEARLY the first beast of Revelation 13. By the time we get to Revelation 13:12 we see protestant America re-uniting with America, causing the MAJORITY to worship the first beast whose deadly wound (civil and religious separation) was healed (the papacy regaining civil power to enforce religious dogmas) Let me be clear, no matter what protestant church you belong to, your church as a SYSTEM (not necessarily every member) WILL SPEAK AS SATAN to encourage false worship. If you do not conform, civil penalties will be the result. Jesus had to tell his own disciples. "These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. This was fulfilled by the stoning of Stephen in Acts 7:52-60. Prior, Peter and many others had to rebaptize backslidden members of the church (Acts 2:5, 37, 38) before the gospel could go to the gentiles. What happened to the so called protestant churches that did not repent? They ended up stoning Stephen and rejecting the truth. Make no mistake, you will either be betrayed like Jesus or the betrayer like Judas. It was because of the 70 week prophecy that Jesus had full knowledge of his betrayal before it came to pass. "Rise up, let us go; lo he that betrayeth me is at hand."-Mark 14:42 by this time I hope you have asked God for strength to endure the betrayal that will only come upon those who are faithful. How will this happen? How will THE PAPPACY and PROTESTANT AMERICA join hands to betray God and his faithful servants? Let us investigate.

I Thessalonians 5:1-3, "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, PEACE and SAFETY; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. Notice how I bolded the words, PEACE and SAFETY. The word peace is self-explanatory. The word safety comes from the original Greek Word:"asphaleia" which means SECURITY. The United Nations and the papacy are the world ambassadors for peace. Now, America is the World ambassador for SECURITY: Homeland Security and every other type of SECURITY associated with the PATRIOT ACT. That act is so generalized you could pick your nose and be considered a terrorist. Nonetheless, when PEACE & SECURITY are paramount, "then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. While the Vatican seeks to establish false peace Protestant America is gaining such political clout it is remarkable. You may wonder, how does this relate to the prophecy of protestant America joining with the papacy? Take a look at the following report from November 17, 2004:

"The nation's Roman Catholic bishops voted Wednesday to join a new alliance that would be the broadest Christian group ever formed in the United States, linking American evangelicals and Catholics in an ecumenical organization for the first time. The alliance, called Christian Churches Together in the U.S.A., is set to kick off next year. It would include mainline Protestants, Orthodox Christians, and black and other minority churches. With about 67 million U.S. members, the Catholic Church would be the largest denomination."

I have showed this to many people and they wonder if their church leadership has joined the alliance. Let me give you an acid test. Take a good look at your church logo. Has it changed to anything resembling a flickering flame within the last 20 years? If so, do not be deceived by false shepherds. Every protestant church has some variation of this logo which came from Vatican II. This logo represents the uniting of all churches as one.

How does this relate to the recent tragedy in New Orleans? Well friends, natural calamities cost lots and lots and lots of money in damage. Thus, the economy takes another hit. Most God fearing people interpret this as God punishing the wicked world when in fact Satan who is the, "prince of this world" is adversely affecting the laboratories of nature. Thus, the people will reason that God is punishing them for not honoring the Sunday Sabbath. This has never been the Sabbath to begin with. Yet, people will do anything they think will restore them to temporal prosperity. Even if this means following a national Sunday Law which compels men by law to worship on a false Sabbath and violate their conscious. As we speak, the disaster in New Orleans has prompted our government to pass Marshall Law. I could write on and on, but if we are not studying for ourselves what's the use. Soon you are going to have to stand for what you believe. Please study, because chances are your minister isn't preaching anything to ground you in the truth. I know because of where we are in prophecy. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail us.

With much love,

Lance Ryan

"When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then PROTESTANT AMERICA will have formed an image of the Roman hierchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon DISSENTERS will inevitably result."
