Weapons of War
America’s Weapons of War are now in the Hands of our Enemies
There is a Biblical principle that the Lord will use one nation to chasten another nation, such as He used Assyria to punish ancient Israel (Isaiah 10). The intent of this chastening was to bring Israel into correction. However, Assyria’s intent went far beyond this – their intent was to destroy Israel. Because Assyria went beyond what God had intended for them to do, the Lord eventually punished Assyria.
Moreover, God will often chasten a nation by allowing the “weapons of war” that a nation has been using against others to be used against themselves within their own borders! For example, the Lord told the Israelites in Jerusalem who were being besieged by the Babylonians that He was about to bring victory to Israel’s enemy using Israel’s own weapons against them.
Jeremiah 21  Thus says the LORD God of Israel: Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, with which you fight against the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans who besiege you outside the walls; and I will assemble them in the midst of this city. (NKJV, emphasis added)
So it is with America! The Lord used America to chasten the country of Iraq. However, because of America’s push for world dominance and the personal revenge of American politicians against any who would dare come against America’s global agenda, including establishing temples of liberty worldwide, America overstepped its boundaries by invading other Arab nations.
Because of America’s wrath, many innocent people in Arab countries are living in terror. America has justified our troop’s spilling of innocent blood of civilians and children not even involved in the war. These sins, combined with America’s other on-going national sins, are contributing factors as to why God is allowing America’s enemies to attack America from within our own borders with our own weapons of war.
Now, rather than being a feared nation, it is our own innocent civilians and children not involved with our overseas wars that fear the wrath of terrorists within our own borders. This begs the question: who is the enemy that has entered in the gates of America and what are the weapons of war that are now being turned back on America?
The Enemy within America’s Walls
On November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas, the Soldiers of Allah began their Ground Invasion of America
Americans Sins are Rapidly Filling to the Brim: Approximately five months before the terrorist attack on September 1, 2001 – I shared with a group meeting in Jacksonville, Florida, as well as others, that the LORD had given me an understanding that America’s sins were rapidly filling to the brim. Because of that, America would be attacked imminently. When America’s sins were filled to the brim because of America’s continuing disobedience, then ground troops would eventually attack from within America’s borders.
This same understanding was included in an article that we placed on our website in July 2009 and as part of this paper, I want to include an excerpt from that article concerning the ground troops that began attacking within America’s borders on November 5, 2009. The excerpt, “The Enemy Will Enter into the Gates of America Again”, is a section from the article “The Spiritual Roots of America’s Economic Crisis” and is highlighted in blue.
The Enemy Will Enter Into the Gates of America Again
The measure of our forefather’s sins are rapidly filling up to the brim and when the full measure is reached – America’s gates are going to be open to a possible devastating “ground invasion” by the terrorists Americans so fear.
Lamentations 4  The Lord hath accomplished his fury; He hath poured out His fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.  The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem. (emphasis added)
Again, just as the kings of the earth and inhabitants of the world in Lamentations mistakenly believed that the gates of Jerusalem were fortified against any possible attack from the enemy – Americans as well as people around the world were astonished when America’s enemies entered into the gates of America and successfully attacked our country on September 11, 2001. How much more so their astonishment when America is once again attacked?
To their own detriment and to the detriment of all Americans, our lawmakers have led Americans to believe that because of all the security measures they as lawmakers are taking that another terrorist attack on America will be prevented. However, you cannot fight a spiritual battle with the carnal weapons of a politician. Rather, of all Americans, it is the lawmaker’s continuance of sins that are filling up the brim to its full measure that will open our gates to the terrorist once more to successfully attack America in what may be a devastating ground invasion.

The Birth Pangs of the Ground Invasions have begun – the Enemy has entered the Gates of America - Again!
The spiritual attacks behind the ground attacks that we see in the natural realm began on November 5, 2009 when U.S. Army Major Hasan, a professing “Soldier of Allah” (a Soldier of Allah is one who is willing to pick up the sword of jihad and kill those who come against Allah, the god of Islam), killed 12 soldiers, one civilian, one unborn child and wounded 30 others at Ft Hood, Texas. As a Soldier of Allah, he is a spiritual brother of the Soldiers of Allah who attacked America on September 11, 2001 by air and he was influenced by a principality that brought its wrath to earth when it was dislodged from the heavens on November 5, 2009. (This point will be supported throughout this paper).
The section quoted above, “The Enemy Will Enter into the Gates of America Again”, as well as more recent events, which will be addressed in this paper, provide spiritual insight into Major Nidal Hasan’s ground attack at Fort Hood. It also provides spiritual insight and connection to a seemingly harmless breach of security at the White House by a man, Tareq Salahi, and his wife, why the enemy’s wrath manifested through Hasan as opposed to someone else and why it was the Salahi’s who were able to breach White House security as opposed to someone else.
Major Hasan, whose business cards identify him as a Soldier of Allah, is a foreshadowing of the warfare to come to America. More specifically, Islam’s Soldiers of Allah are entering into the gates of America again – only this time by ground! However, these ground attacks do not mean that there will never be a terrorist attack against America by some other means – quite the contrary! Breaches within America’s borders, such as we witnessed at the White House is also a foreshadowing of the warfare to come to America.
Major Hasan & the Salahis
A Holy War: The Lord used America to punish Iraq and now He will use the Soldiers of Allah to punish America. Much to the surprise of many, the war America is engaged in is a “spiritual war” – just ask a Muslim from an Arab nation. For that matter, just ask many of the Arabs living in America. Moreover, the LORD did not use Americans to fight against Muslims because of their righteousness – again, quite the contrary! (Isaiah 10)
Soldiers of Allah have found their way into our borders – into the very core of America’s military. What has shocked Americans is that the man who is responsible for the worst mass shooting at a United States military base in our history is that Hasan is a Major in the United States Army. Nonetheless, he is the foreshadowing of the new enemy – the enemy from within. The enemy within is a professing Soldier of Allah who has found their way into the very core of America’s military. Accept it or not – America is in a Holy War!
The White House: Another surprise to many. Regardless of our attempts to secure America’s boundaries, America will be unsuccessful! God’s weapons of judgment can reach those that think themselves safe from all weapons – even those living in the White House!
Take Tareq Salahi for example, the man who was able to breach White House security three weeks after Hasan’s attack on Ft. Hood. Like Hasan, Salahi is an Arab American and like Hasan, Salahi too is a foreshadowing of the new enemy.
The Invisible Enemy: Salahi may not be a professing Soldier of Allah and he may not have murdered anyone, but at times the enemy sets a trap by remaining hidden, which was the goal of Salahi and his wife who was with him. While the American soldiers in uniform are visible to the Iraqi and Afghan people, there remains an American soldier that is not visible to them. Much like Satan hid behind the serpent when he tempted Eve.
America’s attempts to secure our boundaries are proving to be unsuccessful. Notwithstanding all the security measures in which Americans have vainly put their trust, the Soldiers of Allah have and will continue to attack America from within our own borders because the LORD has allowed it! Moreover, the LORD is allowing the Soldiers of Allah to attack America with America’s own “Weapons of War”!
America’s Weapons of War
America’s Constitutional Rights have become Weapons of War for the Enemy: Most agree that Major Hasan’s attack is a new kind of war, a war that the FBI and Military admits to not knowing how to approach without violating someone’s constitutional rights. Ironically, in the sense of what America’s forefathers intended, the Constitutional Rights they are afraid of violating have become weapons of war for the Soldiers of Allah.
What the Government knew about Hasan before the attack: Interestingly, terrorism investigators, unknown to Hasan, intercepted e-mail correspondence between Hasan and Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical cleric living in Yemen who encourages followers of Islam to engage in violent jihad, or holy war. Terrorism investigators knew that Awlaki openly advocates Muslim terrorism against America and knew of his ties to the terrorists who attacked America on September 11, 2001. That is why they kept track of him and those who correspond with him!
It was the teachings of Awlaki, who Hasan considered to be his spiritual advisor, that inspired Hasan to take the principles of Islam more seriously, and in doing so, Hasan, as a Soldier of Allah, took up the cause of murderous jihad! As we will see, the location of the Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia where Hasan met Awlaki (who is also a citizen of the United States) will prove to be significant as well.
What the U.S. Military knew about Hasan before the attack: The U.S. Military was well aware that Major Hasan believed that the time was coming when Muslims that served in the American military would attack America from within their own military ranks to defend Islam. From Hasan’s own comments, the military was aware that given a choice, Major Hasan would personally defend his beliefs in Islam over that of the Constitution of the United States.
Spiritual Lawlessness: And he did just that! During the attack at Ft. Hood, witnesses reported that Hasan shouted, “Allah Akbar” – “God is Great” – a declaration that clearly defines the underlying principle behind his attack on Ft. Hood.
Just as Major Hasan warned that American soldiers who were Muslim would eventually attack from within, he attacked from within the ranks. Many of those who knew him were not surprised that Major Hasan was the very Muslim soldier of which he had warned the military!
America’s Constitutional Right have become the new Weapons of War for America’s Soldiers of Allah: Even though military and government officials were concerned, they were hesitant to take any preemptive action for fear their actions could be viewed as a violation of Hasan’s constitutional rights to “Freedom of Speech” and “Freedom of Religion”. This lack of preemptive measures enabled Hasan to exercise another of his constitutional rights: the “Right to Bear Arms”.
Hasan’s constitutional right to bear arms gave him the “liberty” to purchase the weapon that enabled him to exercise his rights to freedom of religion – and that was to defend Islam. The 14 that he murdered, one of which was unborn, and the 30 others that he wounded at Ft. Hood were a manifestation of his religious beliefs that Soldiers of Allah are justified to kill American soldiers headed for Afghanistan and Iraq to participate in a war that he believed was a Holy War against Islam.
A Holy War: The United States may insist that the war in Afghanistan and Iraq is not a war on Islam. However, the actions of Major Hasan bears witness that the United States government cannot determine the beliefs or actions of radical Muslims or others who are convinced that America’s presence in Iraq and Afghanistan is a “Holy War”. The actions of Major Hasan also bear witness that the United States Government does not understand that the Soldiers of Allah living in America can and will determine the method of warfare and the weapons of war they will use to fight America from within America’s own borders.
It is a sobering thought that America’s constitutional Rights have become one of the weapons of war for America’s Soldiers of Allah. Yet, these same liberties that America’s lawmakers take such great pride in, whether they are used as weapons or not, are protected by law. Nonetheless, they have become “spiritual weapons” of war for America’s Soldiers of Allah engaged in a Holy War.
A Spiritual Battle: Many of us understand that holy wars on earth are a reflection of the spiritual battle going on in the heavens. For that reason, we understand that a nation cannot fight a spiritual war using the carnal weapons of the Constitution of the United States. Yet, America’s Lawmakers Consult no other Oracle than the Constitution:
As discussed more fully in the main article, The Spiritual Roots of America’s Economic Crisis, America’s continuing interference with the God ordained governments of other countries have added to the sins of America’s forefathers. As prophesied by James Wilson on September 11, 1787 (note the date “September 11” is the same day and month the terrorists attacked America – and it was not happenstance!) at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, America’s goal was to “Erect Temples of Liberty” throughout the world.
Collectively, these sins of interfering with other God-ordained governments have now tipped the scales. For this reason, our liberties have now become weapons of war that America’s Soldiers of Allah as well as others will continue to turn back on America in a spiritual war that is neither acknowledged nor understood by America’s lawmakers. These are the same lawmakers who continue to embrace the ideology of Rufus Choate who in 1833 declared:
“We have built no temple but the Capitol. We consult no common oracle but the Constitution”.
America’s lawmakers approved these very words to be engraved at the entrance to the Capitol Visitor Center, which is considered to be the “gateway” to the Capitol. These words are a reminder to all Americans that America’s lawmakers “have built no temple but the Capitol and they consult no common oracle but the Constitution”.
Americans, especially our lawmakers, pride themselves on our constitutional rights of freedom of speech, freedom of religion and America’s tolerance of diversity. Yet, these are the same constitutional rights that prevented the FBI and military from launching an investigation into Major Hasan’s intentions – even though Hasan had expressed to military personnel to let Muslim soldiers leave the service to avoid “adverse” effects such as suicide bombings.
Our Constitutional Freedoms can be Dangerous and Deadly: Americans may find that freedom of religion, freedom of speech and embracing diversity (i.e., political correctness) may no longer be virtues to take pride in when people use them as weapons of war against us. After all, Hasan was only practicing what he had preached: jihad according to his Muslim beliefs.
Obviously, people cannot go around killing others as Hasan did, regardless of their religious beliefs. While Hasan has the freedom to believe in Islam, he does not have the freedom to practice his beliefs when it comes to jihad as this violates federal and state laws concerning murder.
America, “the land of the free”, faces a dilemma. How can our lawmakers preserve our citizenry’s constitutional freedoms of religion and speech and embrace diversity and political correctness, while at the same time, protect us from religious fanatics such as Hasan?
Our federal laws prohibit discrimination (in hiring, etc.) based upon religious beliefs, yet this lack of discrimination provided Hasan with his platform for jihad. It is considered discrimination and politically incorrect to “profile” people; consequently, airline travelers are subjected to long security delays at airports, including serious invasions of privacy, such as body pat-downs, strip searches and the latest humiliation, full-body x-ray scans where TSA employees can clearly view a person’s private parts.
Clearly, our constitutional rights are not as realistic or as genuine as our political leaders and lawmakers would have us believe. As a consequence, Americans may come to an understanding of why other countries do not want America’s democratic form of government forced upon them.
As should be recognized, America’s form of government is not a pure democracy (it is a republic) as it is based not only on the Greek ideal of democracy, but also on Roman law. Nonetheless, it is democracy in which Americans pride themselves.
However, rather than take pride in our democratic form of government, it would be wisdom if Americans would heed God’s Word that warns about Greek philosophy, whose viewpoints were based on human reason rather than the Word of God (1 Corinthians 1:22; Colossians 2:8).
1 Corinthians 1  For while Jews [demandingly] ask for signs and miracles and Greeks pursue philosophy and wisdom  We preach Christ (the Messiah) crucified, [preaching which] to the Jews is a scandal and an offensive stumbling block [that springs a snare or trap], and to the Gentiles it is absurd and utterly unphilosophical nonsense. (Amplified Bible)
Colossians 2  See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you yourselves captive by his so-called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit (idle fancies and plain nonsense), following human tradition (men’s ideas of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude notions following the rudimentary and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding [the teachings] Christ (the Messiah). (Amplified Bible)
Nevertheless, America’s lawmakers like our founding fathers consult no common oracle but the Constitution.
Democracy is a Greek word that means, “rule by the people” and describes the democratic form of government that originated in Greece. While ancient Greece is recognized as the founder of democracy, Scripture reveals that a form of democracy existed even before Greece.
In Judges 21:25, we find, “In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes”. In other words, it was “rule by the people” – every man had complete freedom to do what was right in his eyes! Clearly, doing whatever seemed right in their own eyes was not meant to be a compliment.
This is how Americans are beginning to interpret their constitutional rights – the right to do what seems right in their own eyes. As a result, this is causing a lot of strife in America at the present time. Yet, what should our lawmakers expect when they pass laws “that seem right in their own eyes”, but not in the eyes of the LORD.
Kings and Kingdoms do not speak of “Democracy: Note that verse 25 reveals that each man did that which was right in his own eyes “because there was “no king”. Eventually, Yahweh gave the Israelites an earthly king (Saul), but it was never His highest for them. Scripture describes Yahweh and His Son as “Kings” whose desire is to set up their “Kingdoms” on earth. Yet, during the time of the Judges there was no king because they had rejected Yahweh as their king which was a foreshadowing of Israel’s rejection of Jesus Christ as their king. Notice too, God gave them a king – not a democracy. In other words, even an earthly monarchy that had its flaws was more desirable than a democracy.
King of Kings: Whether it be a democratic form of government, theocracy, monarchy or other form of government, the real issue is whether or not Jesus Christ is at the center of that government, because, after all, the government rest on His shoulders. That is the real issue with America’s democracy. They have not placed America’s government on His shoulders. Instead, they have placed their government on the shoulders of Greek philosophy that says you can worship whatever God you choose. Like the Greek philosophers in Acts 17 verses 16-34, America’s lawmakers believe in many gods. Because of that, America has placed itself in a position to be judged!
America’s politicians have now come face-to-face with one of those many gods and those who will defend him to the death: the god of Islam (Allah) and his soldiers who will kill those Americans who come against Islam. America’s politicians have created their own warfare. It is America’s politicians who have declared war on Islam, yet now, these same politicians do not know what to do about this war without causing conflict on the home front.
Fear has become another Weapon of War for the Enemy to use against Americans within our Borders: Americans invade other countries – and now America is being invaded. With invasion comes fear. Scripture reveals that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but He can let a “spirit of fear” attack America. I believe that is exactly what has happened and why so many Americans today are being overwhelmed by fear. As will be discussed in more detail later, Pan, the god of fear and panic, is one of the principalities behind this attack.
Fear is a weapon of the enemy that has now been turned back upon Americans! It’s not just the fear of terrorist attacks within America’s borders becoming more and more of a reality – Fear itself is the weapon! Whether there is another terrorist attack or not – the fear of another attack is an attack in itself.
Innocent civilians live in fear of Americans who have invaded their country and justified the deaths of old people, children and their parents for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Our soldiers are told that it is not what the military wants to occur, but to keep in mind that it is to protect our country, to secure peace and our boundaries.
At one time American’s did not live in fear. Yet today, security guards with weapons are everywhere and life in America has gotten very complicated. Fear among our military and their families have intensified since the attack at Fort Hood, a heavily fortified army base. While they acknowledge the danger for American soldiers on foreign soil, they now acknowledge the fear of being attacked on American soil from within their own ranks. They even fear that their families can be attacked by a terrorist.
The Invisible behind the Visible: In many wars, there are invisible soldiers, such as spies, moles, assassins, insurgents and others. The goal of this soldier is to be able to get into places that he would not be able to in uniform. This particular soldier does not appear to be a soldier at all. His visual appearance and demeanor is meant to put people at ease – to give the impression they can trust him – that he is one of them. This particular soldier is an actor and can adapt to different situations. The Salahis have the same profile of those who are trained to infiltrate the ranks and gain access to a leader of a nation.
While some only infiltrate within the lower ranks, many others are able to find a weak link in a country’s security system that allows them access to a nation’s leaders. The weak link is often an individual who is willing to betray those he has taken an oath to protect. Jeremiah 12:5-6 speaks to this situation:
Jeremiah 12  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?  For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.
Like the prophet Jeremiah, President Obama and future presidents may find that they will have greater trials and sufferings to face than the Salahi’s who breached White House Security. If the White House staff is “wringing their hands” because two of their own countrymen, who appear to be non-threatening, breached White House Security, then what will they do when one of their own countrymen, like Major Hasan who is much more threatening, breaches White House security?
The Salahis are only “footmen” in the overall scheme of things, while the “horsemen” are symbolic of those like Major Hasan that are more dangerous than the Salahis (verse 5). Even more threatening are the horsemen who are not citizens of America and who in time will breach America’s borders. When that happens, even Major Hasan will appear to have only been a footman.
Tareq Salahi may be an American citizen, but as we have already seen with Major Hasan, American citizenship does not undo or severe the spiritual ties that bind someone to the spiritual beliefs of their ancestors, even when those beliefs are contrary to American beliefs.
The Spiritual behind the Earthly: Salahi was not as harmless or clueless as he would have people to believe – especially spiritually. Like, Hasan, he too has ties to the Kingdom of Jordan. While Hasan’s ties to Jordan are ancestral, Salahi’s ties to Jordan are both political and personal.
Political Ties: Until Tareq Salahi was caught breaching White House Security, he was listed as one of the board of directors of the American Task Force on Palestine. This organization supports the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Moreover, they also actively try to persuade the United States Government to believe that unless America supports the concept of a Palestinian state based upon their ideology, then America cannot accomplish their goals for peace and the spread of democracy in the Middle East.
Spiritual Concessions: Whether America’s politicians understand it or not, anyone who supports Jerusalem being divided between the Jews and Arabs has joined Islam in their religious war against the Israelites. American politicians who are trying to convince and manipulate Israel’s government into believing that the only way to achieve peace in the Middle East is to give the Arabs half of Jerusalem – they too are encroaching upon land that God gave Israel.
Interestingly, the American Task Force on Palestine based here in America has developed political ties with the Jordanian government. They have a direct line of communication with the Kingdom of Jordan and without a doubt, the spirit operating through the Jordanians would have an influence on the board members of the American Task Force on Palestine. Like the Jordanians and ancient Ammonites, the goal of the American Task Force on Palestine is to encroach upon land that God gave Israel, mainly the Old City of Jerusalem that they want as their capital!
Personal Ties: In addition to his “diplomatic visits” to the Middle East, Salahi was in the process of arranging a polo match between the Kingdom of Jordan and America’s Polo Cup, which Salahi serves as Chairman. Interestingly, Salahi’s wife told at least one acquaintance that Tareq Salahi was going to be appointed as America’s Ambassador to Palestine, which of course is not realistic given that America does not have an Ambassador to Palestine since Palestine is not yet a nation.
However, the point is that Salahi is convinced both will come to pass. Salahi’s mindset of what he is convinced of and what he is able to convince others of is important to understanding how the spirit of the Ammonites is able to work through Salahi and others like him to accomplish its goals.
Encroach also means “to influence through persuasion or manipulation”: In other words, being able to influence someone to make a decision they would not otherwise make unless they were manipulated or persuaded to do so is another manifestation of the Ammonite spirit. In this case, the person who has been manipulated has been encroached upon.
This is one of the devices that the Salahi’s relied on to breach White House Security. The Salahi’s ability to persuade the White House’s security personnel was part of Salahi’s strategy to gain access to the White House. The Salahi’s were allowed inside the White House, in violation of agency guidelines and procedures, by an officer outside the front gate who was “persuaded by the Salahi’s manner and insistence”. This is the Ammonite spirit’s line of attack in trying to persuade America’s politicians to believe they cannot accomplish their goals in the Middle East unless they support and push for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
We already know that encroachment, meaning to trespass, is one of the manifestations of the ancient Ammonite spirit. The ancient Ammonites and their offspring, the modern day Jordanians, encroached upon land that the LORD gave the Israelites. Salahi was not only trespassing when he breached White House Security, he was “spiritually encroaching” upon the White House.
Salahi’s attack was not as obvious as Hasan’s, but nonetheless, it was just as dangerous. Like Hasan, Salahi embraces Middle Eastern beliefs concerning America and Israel – they are just expressed differently. Salahi’s desire to be the “Ambassador to Palestine” holds more meaning than wanting peace in the region. Like the Ammonites, Salahi wants to encroach upon land that belongs to Israel.
Salahi Encroached upon his Father’s Land: The influence of this spirit in Salahi’s life is obvious in other area. Sadly, Salahi has even encroached upon his own father’s land and he and his parents have ended up in court. According to his parents’ lawsuit concerning their son, Tareq Salahi only holds a 5% minority interest in their vineyard, the Oasis Vineyard in Hume, Virginia. Yet, Tareq has been able to persuade many high-powered people that he is the exclusive owner of his parent’s vineyard. Obviously, his ability to manipulate and persuade others to believe things that are not true is a way of life. Moreover, other facts about his life are surfacing that are manifestations of this spirit in operation – too many to list here.
The White House Encroachment: The Salahi security breach has caused “hand wringing” within the White House and bewilderment among the guests who attended the State Dinner that night. Once thought to be the most secure place in America, the White House has been breached! Now, the same fear that has been created by America’s presence in other countries has now found its way within the walls of the White House.
No man shall have peace: If in times of peace they have no peace, what will be their peace and security when war comes to America and the enemy sweeps through America as they have already just begun to do? (Jeremiah 12:5)
Duane Reasoner – A Soldier of Allah
If anyone believes that Major Hasan is an isolated case of a “Soldier of Allah” gone rogue, then consider his young friend, Duane Reasoner, a recent convert to Islam, who joined Hasan for dinner the night before Hasan attacked Ft. Hood.
When interviewed, Reasoner, an 18 year-old Muslim, defended Hasan’s actions. Speaking with a British reporter, Reasoner stated that he felt “no pity” for the victims of the Fort Hood massacre. Like Hasan, Reasoner supports aggressive jihad against America. This is evident from the picture posted on his website  that shows Osama bin Laden leading a terrorist attack against the White House (see below picture). It’s obvious that “Ground Attacks” against our government are on the minds of radical Muslims. In other words, Major Hasan is not a Soldier of Allah gone rouge!
The Spiritual War behind Jihad: Not everyone understands the spiritual dimensions of war. Nevertheless, Scripture reveals that both angels and demons, which by nature are spiritual beings, are involved in one way or another with wars fought on earth. Both “holy angels” (Luke 9:26) and “fallen angels” (Matthew 25:41) exist. While their tasks are comprehensive, for the purposes at hand, the main focus will be on the fallen angels and their influence upon man and the wars men engage in.
Let’s begin with Reasoner’s picture, which only portrays the earthly dimensions of jihad, the realm that is visible to everyone. However, there is a spiritual aspect to this picture that is not visible to everyone. Because spiritual beings are visible in their own realm (the heavens), spiritual being are invisible in the earthly realm – unless God opens our eyes to see them. For that reason, the influence of the demonic is not readily discerned, if discerned at all.
Nonetheless, those in the earthly realm are influenced by the demonic in the spiritual realm. Whether they are visible people or invisible spiritual beings, the LORD is in control of all things (Colossians 1:16). In these particular situations where spiritual beings influence people, the LORD deals with both the visible and invisible simultaneously.
For example, in the Garden of Eden, Satan (the invisible) used a serpent (the visible) to operate through when he deceived Eve (the visible). When the LORD rebuked Adam and Eve He also rebuked the serpent. What is interesting, is when the LORD rebuked the serpent, the main rebuke was directed at Satan (the invisible), who used the serpent to hide behind (Genesis 3:14-15). Likewise, as Jesus rebuked Peter (the visible), He also rebuked Satan (the invisible) with the main rebuke directed at Satan (Matthew 16:22-23).
Just as the LORD revealed to Adam, Eve and Peter the identity of the spiritual being they could not see, He will reveal the identity of the spiritual beings we cannot see. Spiritual beings may be invisible in nature, but they are identifiable!
God is in control of the Spiritual War in America: The following Biblical accounts will help us understand why the spiritual beings behind the spiritual war going on in America are identifiable and why the people they are able to influence are also identifiable.
In any spiritual battle, the LORD determines the timing, the place and the weapons of war with which spiritual beings fight. He and He alone determines the path they are to travel, whom they attack and whom they do not attack! They cannot attack at random! However, before exploring the identity of the principalities that have brought their wrath to America, it is helpful to examine several Biblical examples of how these spiritual beings actually influenced someone during Biblical times as well as explore the Christian’s role in these spiritual battles.
Principalities and Demonic Influence over Nations and People
Genesis 3, Judges 11, 1 Kings 22:19-23, Daniel 10, Revelation 13 and Matthew 16:23 as well as Jeremiah 49 all confirm that principalities and the demonic have had a bearing on the ongoing affairs of both men and nations, ever since the Garden of Eden when Satan enticed Eve to eat of the forbidden tree. The account of King Ahab in 1 Kings 22 gives insight into the spirit realm that reveals that even though they are invisible to the human eye, there are lying spirits that can and do influence humans and the actions they take. In this particular situation, Ahab was deciding whether or not to enter into a war.
King Ahab is only one example of someone who was influenced by a lying spirit to enter into a battle that the spirit knew would lead Ahab to his death. The Lord will allow a lying spirit to deceive those who won’t accept the truth. Because Ahab rejected the truth, the Lord put a lying spirit in the mouths of the false prophets from which King Ahab took counsel. Ahab is an Old Testament example of those spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 who, like Ahab, reject the truth only to have God send a strong delusion that they should believe a lie. Just as demons led Ahab into battle and subsequent defeat, they lead kings and nations to their destruction in present day battles and battles yet to be fought, such as the battle at Armageddon.
The Battle of Armageddon is the final spiritual battle to occur on earth between Jesus Christ and the Antichrist before He establishes His Millennial Kingdom. Revelation 16:13-16 explains how Antichrist and demonic will persuade the Kings of the earth to join forces with them in their battle against Jesus Christ and the armies of Heaven, all in a vain attempt to keep Jesus from establishing His Kingdom on earth at His second coming. Revelation 19:11-21
Revelation 16  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.  Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.  And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Obviously, Satan has to operate through God’s creations – he cannot operate or exercise authority without the cooperation and willingness of man, whether it is knowingly or unknowingly on man’s part. Sadly, there are probably many, who like Judas, covet money. For that reason, they leave themselves open to Satan’s influence who put it into the heart of Judas to betray the Son of God.
The New Testament also reveals the influence of Satan in this world. While Colossians 1:16 speaks of the visible and invisible, whether they are thrones or dominions or principalities or powers, Ephesians 2:2 reveals that Satan, the prince of the power of the air, is the spirit that works in the children of disobedience to bring about his purposes (as he did with Judas). Moreover, 2 Timothy 2:26 reveals that those who oppose the Gospel are taken captive by Satan to do his will.
So it is with the Soldiers of Allah: Satan, the prince of the power of the air, has taken the Soldiers of Allah who oppose the Gospel of Jesus Christ captive to do his will.
Christians and Spiritual Warfare
Ephesians 6:12 reveals that the real war Christians are engaged in is not against physical opponents, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly realms. In other words, the realm that is invisible to us.
We also know from Scripture that one aspect of this warfare is to dislodge principalities from their strongholds in the heavens. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer! (Isaiah 14:12) Like Satan, it is from the heavenly realm that the principalities fall from as we engage in the spiritual warfare described in Luke 10!
The original fall and the final casting down of Satan is described in Isaiah 14:12-14. Satan’s final fall will be at the end of the millennial reign of Christ when he will be brought down to hell and cast into the lake of fire – Revelation 20:10.
Until then – all throughout the Church Age – Satan is ever falling! Even though Satan has yet to be cast into the lake of fire, we find that Satan is continuously falling from the heavens. Every time a principality within Satan’s dominion (the kingdom of darkness) is dislodged from the heavenly realm, Satan is weakened. He comes closer and closer to being cast into the pit. It is in that sense that Satan is continuously falling.
We know from 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 that Christians have the authority to spiritually overthrow and destroy earthly strongholds of our spiritual enemies. However, Luke 10 reveals that many Christians are called to pull down spiritual strongholds that the devils have set up in the heavens.
We know that the devils in Luke 10 that submitted to the 70 Jesus sent out were referring to those devils with strongholds in the heavenly realm. When the 70 reported to Jesus that even the devils submitted to them in His name, Jesus told them that He saw Satan as lightning fall from heaven!
It Is Written: The spiritual weapon used to pull down these strongholds is the Word of God. The Word of God is the two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12) of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that we must wield over our spiritual enemies to overthrow and destroy their spiritual strongholds.
Like Jesus, we too must say to the principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world “It is Written”! (Luke 4)
As part of a Believer’s armor, we are to take the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God, and wield it over the enemy. For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power. His Word is sharper than any two-edged carnal sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life, the soul and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow, of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing, sifting, analyzing, and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart! Ephesians 6:17 and Hebrews 4:12 So it was with the 70 who reported to the Lord that even the devils were subject to them because of His name. They too wielded the Word of God over the devils!
Jesus Christ “IS” the Word of God! John 1, verses 1 and 14, reveals that the Word of God was made flesh. In other words, when the devils submitted to the 70 because of the Name of Jesus, they were submitting to them because Jesus Christ “IS” the Word of God. Revelation 19:13 also bears witness that Jesus’ Name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.
Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name:
Luke 10  And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.  And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (emphasis added)
Luke 10 is among those teachings that are important to the advancement of God’s Kingdom and this particular chapter gives us insight into a specific type of spiritual warfare, as spiritual warfare is multifaceted. Taking note of their victory, Jesus confirmed what they were saying. Jesus said “I saw Satan fall as lightning from heaven”. He acknowledged that as the disciples gained ground, the devil was losing ground. We are to pull Satan’s kingdom down to the ground and this specific type of spiritual warfare brings Satan’s kingdom to the ground.
The word “beheld” in the context of verse 18 means to look upon or gaze at. It can mean to call ones attention to, to be discerning, to comprehend a matter. With that in mind, Jesus gave them an understanding of the dynamics of the warfare in the heavens and explained to them the authority He had given them in that realm.
In His discourse, Jesus begins the dialogue by looking into the heavens and draws His disciple’s attention to the heavenly realm as well. While He had their attention focused on the heavenly realm, it was in this spiritual posture that Jesus said to them “Behold”, meaning to consider the authority over the devils and “all the power of the enemy” over which He had given them. He also went on to explain the principles of this type of warfare in the heavens – the realm where Satan and devils dwell and only one of the areas where the Christian’s battle is.
Notice that it was only those that Jesus appointed that were sent two-by-two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go (verse 1). In other words, not everyone was appointed for this particular calling. This also means that not everyone understands those of us who are called to this particular ministry.
In fact, Jesus rejoiced in spirit and thanked the Father that these things were not revealed to everyone (verse 21). In verse 23-24 we find that Jesus said privately to His disciples that “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them”.
Even though there are those who will never understand this type of warfare, let alone even realize that it exists, blessed are those that have been appointed and who do understand what God has called them to. What is important is that because of those who are called by God to this type of ministry, Satan’s kingdom suffers defeat. Those of who are called to this ministry understand that principle.
Even more so, we rejoice not that the devils submit to us – we rejoice that our names are written in Heaven (verse 20)! Moreover, we understand that if devils are subject to us in the Name of Jesus, then what can stand against us and prevail? Not even the Gates of Hell!
All throughout the Church Age – Satan is ever falling!
While Luke 10 speaks of strongholds in the heavens, we know that authority has been given to the Church to pull down those demonic strongholds that have been established on earth as well. Every time a principality is dislodged, every time the Church casts out a demon from someone who is bound up and every time an unbeliever’s soul is rescued from the demonic and comes into the Kingdom, Satan is being driven out (John 12:31) and comes closer to being cast into the pit!
Every time a Christian takes authority over Satan, he continues to fall. All throughout the Church Age, Satan is ever falling! When every Satanic power and Satan himself has completely fallen and made inoperative, in other words, fallen under the feet of Jesus, then The End Cometh! 1 Corinthians 15:24-28
Interestingly, Jesus compared Satan’s fall to lightening, which is quick, dazzling and destructive. Moreover, Revelation 12 reveals why they are destructive. When a principality is dislodged from the heavens, they bring “great wrath” to the earth, meaning that they will slaughter for any purpose because they know their time is short.
The Ammonite Principality Brought It’s Wrath to Earth! It was the wrath of the Ammonite principality that was dislodged from the heavens over Jerusalem on October 17, 2009 that manifested through Major Hasan, a descendant of the ancient Ammonites, who slaughtered 13 people at Ft. Hood.
Jordanians are Modern Day Ammonites. Jordanians rightfully claim to be the descendants of the ancient Ammonites. During Biblical times the city of Rabbath-Ammon was the Capital of the Ammonites. Known today as Amman, Rabbath-Ammon remains the Capital of the descendants of the Ammonites – the Jordanians.
Like his father, who emigrated from Jordan to America, Hasan’s bloodline is that of a Jordanian and the ancient Ammonites. His bloodline determines his lineage, not his American citizenship! Hasan may be an American citizen, but American citizenship did not change his family background. Nor did his American citizenship undo or cancel out his inherited ties to his ancestors, the Ammonites. Like his father and grandfather, Major Hasan is still an Arab with ties to Jordan and their ancient ancestors.
Nor did Hasan’s American citizenship change his religious beliefs. Like many Jordanians, Major Hasan is a true Soldier of Allah who believes in jihad! Jeremiah 48:32 speaks to this situation:
Jeremiah 48  O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer; thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer; the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage
Jeremiah was using a symbolic narrative to convey a spiritual meaning. The vines speak of spiritual vines that spread from one country to another only to bring destruction to the country to which they spread. As it relates to America, the vines represent the spiritual vines of Islam and its influence of jihad that have spread from the Arab nations over the sea and are now spreading throughout America.
In other words, the influence of Islam and jihad has reached America and the Soldiers of Allah are spoiling our vineyard here in America. The vines can be thought of in terms of poison ivy. Those who are allergic to poison ivy know the poisonous effects of coming into contact with this vine!
These “spiritual vines” spiritually connect our nation’s Capitol with the headwaters of the Jordan River located at Caesarea Philippi (explained in more detail later), one of the two places the Lord sent me to speak prophetically on the land October 17, 2009. Surprisingly, along with Israel, Jordan shares the water rights to the Jordan River, a river that the LORD gave to Israel.
Also surprisingly, Jordan shares joint authority with Israel at the Temple Mount, land that the LORD gave Israel. This joint authority is a key detail to understanding why the principalities dislodged from the heavens on October 17, 2009 were from within the dominion of the gods of the ancient Ammonites, modern day Jordanians, and why that affects America. Let’s begin with the Temple Mount located in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The Jordanians have encroached upon the Old City of Jerusalem!
The Western Wall in Jerusalem: The Lord had given me the understanding to speak prophetically at the Western Wall in Jerusalem and at the headwaters of the Jordan River located at Caesarea Philippi on Saturday, October 17, 2009. From the Scriptures that the Lord quickened me to read on the land, He gave me the understanding that He was not building up but tearing down, which meant that a principality would come down and bring its wrath to earth (Revelation 12). This wrath will be manifested in more than one way, including the eventual fall of Jerusalem’s Western Wall. However, for the purposes at hand, I want to speak about the principality that came down and manifested through Major Hasan at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009 (November 6, 2009 in Jerusalem) and what that means to America as well as the principality that manifested through the Salahi’s and what that means to America.
From the Scriptures that the LORD gave to me to read on the land, the Lord gave me the understanding that He would not allow the scepter or rod of wickedness to remain on the land allotted to Israel (Psalm 125:3). This means that the Jordanians who rule over the Temple Mount will not always be allowed to persecute the Israelites or to have a permanent rule over the Temple Mount. The rod of the Jordanian government may come and reside for a time, but they shall not be permitted to wield their rod over the Temple Mount forever.
After the Six Day War, Israel regained control of Jerusalem from Jordan. However, much to the surprise of the Jewish people who had waited for so long to see that day, Moshe Dayan, Israel’s Defense Minister, permitted the Jordanian government to continue their civil and religious authority on the Temple Mount. The “Waqf”, a Muslim religious organization under the authority of Jordan, continues to oversee the day-to-day activity on the Temple Mount.
When Moshe Dayan allowed the Jordanians to remain as overseers of the Temple Mount, he allowed their gods to remain as overseers as well. Instead of destroying the Dome of the Rock, considered by Muslims to be one of the three holiest sites of Islam, Moshe Dayan allowed it to remain standing within the walls of the Temple Mount on land God allotted to the Israelites. Consequently, the Jordanians and their gods are a constant thorn in Israel’s side.
Moshe Dayan’s compromise did not ensure the peace for Israel for which he had hoped. Instead, the atmosphere at the Temple Mount between the Muslims and the Jewish people has been and is quite volatile.
Spiritually, Islam’s Soldiers of Allah and the spiritual beings, the ancient gods of the Ammonites operating through them, are the ones wielding the “rod of wickedness” over areas God allotted to Israel. This includes not just the Temple Mount, but the Jordan River as well, and they will remain a constant threat to Israel until their rule comes to an end!
The Ancient gods of Jordan’s ancestors, the Ammonites: Then and Now
The spiritual truths of Israel’s past as revealed in Scripture are relevant to current and future events in Israel. To understand the current circumstances concerning Jerusalem’s Old City and the Jordan River, we need only to turn to Scripture. For example, Jeremiah 49:1-3 reveals that Milcom, the national god of the Ammonites, and his people, the Ammonites, became heir to land that did not belong to them. Rather, they encroached upon land that belonged to Israel.
Just as Ecclesiastes 1:8-9 reveals that there is nothing new under the sun, what has been will be again, we should not be surprised to find that the Jordanians, like their ancient ancestors the Ammonites, have also encroached upon land God gave Israel! According to the prophet Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 49  Concerning the Ammonites, thus saith the LORD; Hath Israel no sons? hath he no heir? why then doth their king inherit Gad, and his people dwell in his cities?  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites; and it shall be a desolate heap, and her daughters shall be burned with fire: then shall Israel be heir unto them that were his heirs, saith the LORD.  Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled: cry, ye daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth; lament, and run to and fro by the hedges; for their king shall go into captivity, and his priests and his princes together. (emphasis added)
Jeremiah 49:1-3 reveals that deities, their priests and princes can “inherit” land, which indicates that the geographical principalities as described in Daniel 10 can invade and occupy areas outside of their legal geographical arena. That is what we see happening in Israel today. These geographical principalities, a hierarchy of other spiritual beings that exist in an invisible realm and their priests and princes, along with the Soldiers of Allah who serve them and who we see in the visible realm, have become heirs to Jerusalem’s Old City and Jordan River. Let’s begin with Jerusalem.
Background of Jordan’s Authority in Jerusalem’s Old City:
The Arab-Israeli War of 1948
· From 1948 through 1967, Jordan occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem, including Jerusalem’s Old City
The Six-Day War of 1967
· Jordan joined forces with Egypt and Syria and attacked Israel in June, 1967. It was at this time that Israel dislodged the Jordanians out of the West Bank and East Jerusalem and regained control over these areas.
· After the war ended, Moshe Dayan, Israel’s Defense Minister, permitted the Jordanian government to continue their civil and religious authority over the Temple Mount, thereby allowing Jordan to become “heir” to land that belonged to Israel.
· The “Waqf”, a Muslim organization under the authority of Jordan, oversees the day-to-day activity on the Temple Mount.
· Jordanian authority is not to be taken lightly. For example,
o The Waqf prevents Israelis from making much-needed repairs to the Western Wall.
o The Waqf continues to undermine the Israeli archaeologist by removing tons of gravel from the Temple Mount site that could contain stones that would substantiate Israel’s claim that that Temple Mount is indeed where Solomon’s built the Temple to the Lord.
· Moshe Dayan’s gesture of respect for the religious rights of the Muslims who had established holy sites within the Temple Mount area equates with America’s beliefs of religious freedom.
Today (2009) – as quoted from The Washington Post on November 17, 2009 (“To two faiths, a holy patch of land; to the world, a powder keg”) and referring to Jordan’s authority on the Temple Mount:
· “… Under Muslim administration since the Crusades, the compound – a largely open-air plaza that includes the al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock – is under Jordanian authority, an arrangement that Israel agreed to maintain after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and the creation of the Palestinian Authority in the 1990s.” (emphasis added)
· The article continues: “The oversight from Amman, whose ruling Hashemite family is also the formal custodian of the preeminent mosques in Mecca and Medina, reflects how any agreement over Jerusalem will have to go beyond the bounds of what the Palestinians on their own can negotiate.” (emphasis added)
(Note: Amman is the Capital of Jordan and is so named after their Biblical ancestors – the Ammonites).
· “… The Jordanian ministry employs 500 people who staff the Jerusalem compound”
· “…It was nevertheless a close call said Mohammed Tamimi, director of the Jerusalem Waqf, the agency that oversees the compound on Jordan’s behalf.” [speaking of the tense period from late Yom Kippur through late October 2009 that passed with only minor violence]
Given the volatile mood of the Temple Mount, to keep peace the Israeli government will not take a stand against the Waqf’s activities. For that reason, even as of 2009, the Jordanian government remains a thorn in Israel’s side
Jordan has become Illegal Heirs to Jerusalem’s Old City
What! Were there no Israelites living in Jerusalem that Moshe Dayan, Israel’s Defense Minister, permitted the Jordanian Government to continue its civil and religious authority on the Temple Mount even after Israel regained control of the “Old City” from the Jordanians in the Six Day War of 1967? Again, the spiritual truths of Israel’s past as revealed in Scripture are relevant to current and future events in Israel.
Just as the ancient Ammonites and their gods encroached upon territory that belonged to Israel, the Jordanians, descendants of the Ammonites, and Soldiers of their god Allah have encroached upon territory that belongs to Israel and have become heir to Jerusalem’s Old City. The same spirit that influenced the Biblical Ammonites still influence their descendants – the Jordanians.
The name of the people and their gods has changed. The descendants of the Ammonites are now called Jordanians and Allah has been added to the national gods of the Ammonites. But, there is nothing new under the sun. The goal of both the people and their gods remain the same: they want land that God gave Israel.
As a result of war, the Jordanian government gained authority over the Temple Mount in 1948. Even though Israel regained control of the Old City of Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967, the Jordanian government became “heir” to the Temple Mount. As mentioned above, Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, to keep the peace and in a gesture of respect for the rights of the Muslims who worshipped at the Dome of the Rock located inside the Old City, allowed the Jordanian government to maintain administrative and religious authority in the Old City of Jerusalem. They have been a thorn in Israel’s side ever since.
Also key to understanding the spiritual influence behind Jordan’s desire to have authority over the Temple Mount and Jordan River, land that God gave to Israel, is Judges 11; and Zephaniah 2:8. Judges 11:12-17 provides further understanding into the spiritual mindset of the Jordanians whose ancestors, the Ammonites, waged war with Israel over land.
Jephthah rightly insisted that the God of Israel had given the land in dispute to them. yet the Ammonites insisted that the land belonged to them (just as the Jordanians claim today). Interestingly, Jephthah encouraged the Ammonites to be content with the land their god, Chemosh, had given to them and leave the land alone that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had given to the Israelites. When the Ammonites refused to listen, Jephthah informed them that the Lord would judge between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon as to whom the land belongs.
Judges 11  Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess? So whomsoever the LORD our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.  Wherefore I have not sinned against thee, but thou doest me wrong to war against me: the LORD the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.
Scripture reveals that at times God’s people, for various reasons, will lose possession of land that He gave them, as was the case with the Ammonites and their pagan deity who did eventually take possession of the territory that Jephthah had secured. However, Jeremiah 49:1-3 reveals that pagan possession is temporary at best as God will always enable His people to repossess land that He gave them.
We know that when God judged a nation, He also judged their pagan gods. For example, He judged Milcom and Chemosh when he judged the Ammonites and when He judged Egypt, He also judged the gods of Egypt (Exodus 12:12). He and He alone is the one who judges not the other way around.
Without a doubt, as the Lord deals with Jordan, He too will deal with the gods of Jordan operating behind the Soldiers of Allah. Just as the ancient Ammonites mocked God’s people and magnified themselves against the borders of Israel, their descendants, the Jordanians, act as though they have the right to the Temple Mount for their people to worship their pagans gods at the high places the Muslims built unto Allah.
Zephaniah 2  I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached My people, and magnified themselves against their border.
Just as the ancient Ammonites taunted the Israelites, their descendants, the Jordanians, have desecrated and taunted the Israelites during their control over the Temple Mount. Before the Six Day War when the Israelites were denied access into the Old City of Jerusalem, the Jordanians would taunt the Israelites by doing such things as taking the tombstones off the gravesites of Jews and use them in their latrines.
Jordan has also become an Illegal Heir to Israel’s Jordan River
What! Jordan has become heirs to Israel’s Jordan River?
What! Were there no Israelites living in Jerusalem that the nation of Israel agreed to share the water rights of the Jordan River with country of Jordan?
Has Israel no sons? Has he no heir?
Why then do the Ammonite gods of Jordan trespass upon the Jordan River,
The Rightful Possession of Israel,
And why do Allah’s people, the Soldiers of Allah, dwell in its cities?
Conflicts over the Jordan River date back to Biblical times. However, Scripture is clear, the Lord gave “all” the water rights of the Jordan River to Israel!
Judges 7  And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan.
The Jordan River forms the western boundary between Jordan and Israel’s West Bank. The Jordan River also plays a main role in historical disagreements between Israel and Jordan, both who claim historical rights to the Jordan River, including a disagreement that was a contributing factor leading up to the Six Day War in 1967.
On the last day of the Six Day War, Israel took authority over the headwaters at Caesarea Philippi where the Syrians had established a fort and were in the process of diverting the headwaters located there to flow through Arab nations. This would have robbed Israel of a portion of their much-needed water supply.
However, even after their victory in regaining control of Jordan’s headwaters, just as Israel relinquished their authority to Jordan to oversee the Temple Mount, they compromised and agreed to share their water rights with Jordan. Again, this has been a constant thorn in Israel’s side!
The Headwaters at Caesarea Philippi and its Pagan Temple are “Spiritually” Tied to America’s Gateways & the U.S. Capitol’s Grotto
In order to understand the spiritual ties between Caesarea Philippi and America we need to have some degree of understanding of the history of ancient languages and spiritual gateways. Let’s begin with the etymology of “Daleth”.
The etymology of the Egyptian hieroglyphic of a fish, the Phoenician daleth, the Hebrew daleth and the Greek delta are keys to understanding why the occult and Freemasons use triangle and fish symbols to identify spiritual gateways. Even though Egyptian hieroglyphics were never an alphabet in the true sense, nonetheless, the Semitic people of Phoenicia, who created the first known true alphabet, were influenced by Egypt’s use of pictures to communicate.
Over time, the use of pictures evolved into the letters of the alphabet. Those who understand the significance of the etymology of words and images realize that the root meaning is still relevant – especially for those operating in secrecy. It is in that sense that the root meanings are relevant for those of us who expose what the unrighteous do in secret.
It is well known that organizations who operate in secrecy, like the occult and Freemasons, are heavily influenced by all aspects of ancient civilizations, especially their beliefs about their relationship to the spiritual realm. For that reason, they are known to use symbols and letters to convey one message to those who are like-minded and who, like themselves, understand the etymology of words or images, while hiding the true meaning from the general public. As a result, they are able to continue to operate in secrecy.
Therefore, let’s look at the etymology of the fish and triangle, two symbols whose root meanings are vital to the Freemasons and the occult who both believe that the triangle is symbolic of the spiritual. The chart below shows the etymology of the letter/symbol, “daleth”, from its earliest usage.
The Semitic alphabet used pictures to convey ideas. For example, the earliest known Semitic symbol of a fish literally meant “door” or more specifically a “tent door”. Interestingly, the Semitic people of Phoenicia incorporated a triangle into their symbol of a fish; it was the tent shape of the triangle that was meant to be symbolic of a door or gateway. This particular shape became known as daleth.
Over time, the diamond shape of the fish was eliminated and only the triangular shaped tail remained – pointing in the opposite direction. This particular shape was the fourth letter of the Phoenician alphabet and was also known as daleth. Even though the shape evolved, the idea behind the letter daleth remained and daleth continued to be equivalent to a door.
Interestingly, daleth was adopted by the Hebrews for the fourth letter of their alphabet and like the Phoenician daleth, the Hebrew daleth also meant door. To the Greeks, who adopted daleth as the fourth letter of their alphabet, daleth was written in the form of a triangle and was renamed “delta”. Like the Phoenician and Hebrew daleth, the Greek delta means door.
Obviously, not everyone used daleth in the same way that the pagans did as not everyone bowed down to pagan deities. Many used daleth or delta for secular purposes. However, it is the meaning of daleth that the pagans corrupted for their purposes to identify their spiritual gateways that I want to address.
According to The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible  as well as other sources, the original meaning of daleth was probably dag – the Hebrew word for fish. In other words, because daleth was originally based on the pictogram of a fish, the representation of both the triangle and a fish can be used interchangeably to convey the idea of a door. This same concept was embraced by America’s Founding Fathers when laying the foundations of our Nation’s Capitol.
The Egyptians believed in orientating their temples to the stars; likewise, those who were responsible for designing the layout of our nation’s Capital ensured that Washington, D.C. was laid out in accordance with those same pagan beliefs. The particular star in relationship to the layout of Washington, D.C. is “Sirius” – and interestingly, but not surprisingly, the Egyptian hieroglyphic for Sirius includes the triangular obelisk. The other two hieroglyphics alongside the obelisk are a dome and a five-pointed star, both of which are incorporated into the structure and artwork of our Nation’s Capitol building. Once again, the ideology and symbolism were to show the relationship between the spiritual and the natural.
Spiritual Gateways in Washington, DC
It is well known that America’s Founding Fathers, as well as those who later implemented their plans and beliefs, used artwork and architectural symbolism to spiritually link our nation’s capital to civilizations of antiquity. Therefore, it is not surprising to find numerous triangles located throughout the city of Washington, DC. An example of this is the Federal Triangle, which is located between the White House and the Capitol and includes approximately 70 acres. These triangles identify the numerous spiritual doors or gateways throughout our Nation’s Capital through which the demonic and principalities operate.
Earlier maps of D.C. also clearly portray the Capitol, White House, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials as well as the Washington Mall all strategically enclosed within the outline of a huge fish, as shown in the annotated aerial photographs below of Washington, D.C. 
America’s Foremost Political “Demonic Spiritual Gateway”
The above fish identifies the foremost political “demonic spiritual gateway” in America. This and other symbolism located throughout Washington, DC spiritually connects our nation’s Capital to various ancient civilizations and their demonic gateways, for example, ancient Nineveh (see the article entitled: The Symbolism of Washington, DC (the Anatomy of a Fish excerpt)).
Just as our nation’s capital is represented by the image of a fish inside the enclosure of a city, biblical Nineveh was also represented by the picture of a fish inside the enclosure of a city. According to The Popular and Critical Bible Encyclopedia, “The name of Nineveh is written Ninua and Nina in the cuneiform inscriptions. A popular etymology connected it with the Assyrian nunu, ‘fish,’ at a very early date, since the name is ideographically represented by the picture of a fish inside the enclosure of a city.” 
The World’s Foremost “Demonic Spiritual Gateway”: The Gates of Hell
America’s foremost political demonic spiritual gateway is also spiritually connected to the world’s foremost demonic spiritual gateway located in Israel at ancient Caesarea Philippi: The Gates of Hell.
Caesarea Philippi was originally called Paneas in honor of the Greek god Pan who was a goat deity. As shown in the above map, the Capitol of the United States is positioned inside the topography of a goat’s head (the goat’s head is located inside the tail of the fish – see the enlarged annotated image below) that sits atop a geographical triangle that is truncated (blue outline surrounding the Federal Triangle in red). This particular triangle is one of several triangles incorporated within the layout of the fish. Again, both the triangle and fish are symbolic of spiritual gateways and the triangles within the fish are symbolic of gateways within the gateway. The goats’ head outline of the U.S. Capitol and the grotto located on the Capitol grounds link America’s Capitol to Pan, the goat deity and his grotto in Caesarea Philippi.
Pan: the god of fear: In addition to his other attributes, Pan is also known as the god of fear and was known to instill sudden fear, especially in lonely places or on the battlefield. This is where we get our modern-day English word, panic. The current manifestations of this fear, especially that fueled by our government, are discussed in more detail in later sections.
The Satyrs Shall Dance There: It seems that Pan is none other than the Satyrs (goat deity) spoken of in Isaiah 13:21 and Isaiah 34:14:
Isaiah 13  But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. (emphasis added)
The “devil” spoken of in 2 Chronicles 11:15 is referring to a “devil” or “goat-demon”. A devil in the context of this Scripture is in reference to an idol in the form of a goat. This goat-demon or satyr was known as Pan at Caesarea Philippi.
Gateway of Hell
Matthew 16  When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.  He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?  And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (emphasis added)
“And the Gates of Hell shall not Prevail”
Caesarea Philippi was an area that Christ had not been to before and His journey to Caesarea Philippi, a prominent pagan high place, marked the northern limit of Jesus’ travels outside Jerusalem. Given that travel would not have been easy due to the topography of the land, why would Jesus journey to this particular pagan high place to make such a profound statement as recorded in Matthew 16:13-19 rather than at the Temple in Jerusalem?
To begin with, the name Caesarea Philippi was synonymous with the gates of hell. According to ancient history, the pagans of antiquity believed the gates of hell were literally located at Caesarea Philippi. It was here that Jesus fearlessly stood at the gateway of hell and spoke a creative word into the spiritual realm (Ephesians 3:10). He declared to Satan, the father of lies, and to the kingdom of darkness that like Peter, all of God’s children, not just the prophets, would have the ability to hear from God the Father. It is upon our ability to hear that He will build His church – and that the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
The Gates of Hell were Located within a Geographical Triangle
Given that spiritual gateways are identified by spiritual triangles, we should not be surprised that the gates of hell were located in a city “nestling amid three valleys on a terrace in the angle of Hermon” . Nor should we be surprised that Mount Hermon itself was a mountain range with three summits situated like the angles of a triangle. Given the spiritual symbolism of truncated triangles, it is also significant that one of these three summits is described as truncated. (For further information, see the article titled: Spiritual Triangles)
Nor should we be surprised that it was here that Jesus asked His disciples who they thought He was and after Peter responded that He was the Son of God that Jesus said unto Peter: “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
The Gates of Hell and the U.S. Capitol
There is an interesting spiritual connection between the Gates of Hell in Caesarea Philippi and the U.S. Capitol. It is common knowledge, especially among occultists, that the landscape design and layout of the U.S. Capitol grounds appears as the outline of a goat’s head when viewed from a vertical or aerial perspective (below is a copy of the original 1874 drawing for Capitol landscape improvements  showing the goat’s head). As noted above, Caesarea Philippi was originally named Paneas in honor of the goat deity, Pan. Thus, both Caesarea Philippi and the U.S. Capitol have a “goat theme” in common.
While this goat connection might be dismissed in of itself, the Summer House cannot be. Located on the grounds on the west side of the Capitol is a small brick structure called the Summer House. In addition to the goat’s head, the Summer House was part of the Capitol’s landscape design of Frederick L. Olmstead, the Capitol’s original landscape architect, in 1874. It is an open-air hexagon-shaped (geometrically composed of six equilateral triangles – the number of man) structure designed as a grotto with iron gates at the entrance.
Of particular interest is a fountain inside the structure that was originally designed to incorporate a device with a set of chimes, sometimes referred to as a carillon, to produce a “melody” (not a song) from the falling waters. In a straight line behind the gates and fountain and viewable through an oval opening or window in the far wall is a grotto with a stream of water coming from this small cave (see picture below).
The fountain of water at the Capitol Grotto is symbolic of the headwaters of the Jordan River – the “Banias Springs” situated at the base of Pan’s grotto.
Comparing the Summer House on the Capitol grounds to Caesarea Philippi, we find that Caesarea Philippi was located in one of the angles of triangular-shaped Mount Hermon. Caesarea Philippi and Mount Hermon were where the goat-deity, Pan, had a grotto or cave with a stream flowing from it, just as found in the Summer House. Pan is often depicted as playing a set of pipes. According to mythology, Pan invented a musical instrument composed of unequal reeds plucked from a stream that produced a “plaintive melody” to woo the nymph, Syrinx and named the instrument after her. This is analogous to the original intent of the carillon of the Summer House. The spiritual gates (Gates of Hell) of Caesarea Philippi, of course, correspond to the physical iron gates of the Summer House (see the below picture of the Summer House gates).
According to Bulfinch’s Mythology, “Pan, the god of woods and fields, of flocks and shepherds, dwelt in grottos, wandered on the mountains and in valleys, and … came to be considered a symbol of the universe and personification of Nature.”  Pan’s woodland character and personification of nature fit nicely with Olmstead’s landscaping plans for surrounding the Summer House with many different types of plants, especially ivy, which he planted around the Summer House to “merge it with its surroundings”, thus making it part of nature.
Again, the ivy is also symbolic of a spiritual cord as alluded to by Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 48  O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer; thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer; the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage.
Jeremiah was describing the physical spread of vines, but this is also symbolic of the spiritual spread of vines, in this case, across the sea to the ivy vines surrounding the Summer House, connecting the Summer House with Caesarea Philippi. When taken as a whole, the connections between the Gates of Hell at Caesarea Philippi and the U.S. Capitol and its Summer House are unmistakable.
Jeremiah was using a fictitious narrative to convey a spiritual meaning. The vines speak of spiritual vines that spread from one country to another only to bring destruction to the country to which they spread. As it relates to America in the context of this study – the vines represent the spiritual vines of Islam and its influence of jihad that have spread from the Arab nations over the sea and are now spreading throughout America. In other words the influence of Islam and jihad has reached America and the Soldiers of Allah are spoiling our vineyard here in America.
The spiritual vine also represents the spread of fear over America. Starting in Caesarea Philippi with Pan, the god of fear and panic, this vine first reached Washington, DC and New York City. Fear and panic have since spread to the rest of the nation, which, of course, is one of the primary goals of both terrorism and this principality. Below is a picture of Pan’s cave and Banias Springs (forefront) in ancient Caesarea Philippi. Pan’s temple was located directly in front of this cave.
Connecting the (Spiritual) Dots
President Obama, referring to the attempted Christmas Day (2009) terrorist attack, stated that America’s intelligence and law enforcement communities failed to “connect the dots” by not properly sharing information between agencies. Because not all authorities had the same information, this allowed known and suspected terrorists to escape detection. Without complete information, there was no way for the various groups responsible to connect the dots, meaning to draw logical conclusions.
We also need to connect the dots spiritually to gain a proper understanding of past and recent events. As will be shown below, there is a spiritual link between the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and recent events involving Major Hasan and the Salahi’s breach of White House security.
When we connect these spiritual dots, we find the spiritual paths or lines along which judgment has occurred or will occur. One of the specific paths we are witnessing today is a pathway of revenge: seventy-seven (77). This pathway goes all the way back to George Washington and establishes what has come to be known as longitude 77 degrees as the spiritual path of judgment.
Spiritual Paths of Judgment
Principalities from within the dominion of the Ammonite gods have been dislodged from the heavens and Revelation 12 reveals that when a principality comes down to the earth, they bring their wrath! Even so, principalities cannot attack at random; they can only travel and attack on the “straight path” that the Lord makes for them.
Psalm 78  He let loose upon them the fierceness of His anger, His wrath and indignation and distress, by sending [a mission of] angels of calamity and woe among them.  He leveled and made a straight path for His anger [to give it free course]; He did not spare [the Egyptian families] from death but gave their beast over to the pestilence and the life [of their eldest] over to the plague. (Amplified Bible, emphasis added)
The straight path traveled upon can be thought of in terms of a “spiritual path” and the “angels of calamity” (referred to as “evil angels” in the King James Version) can only travel on these spiritual paths.
It was not unusual for Jesus or Paul to take an example from everyday life to convey a spiritual concept. Therefore, for the sake of explanation let me use the concept of a smart missile and a guided missile as examples to explain a spiritual concept as it relates to a principality that has been dislodged. Both travel through the air, both bring wrath to earth upon impact and both have been pre-programmed.
A smart missile is pre-programmed – they do not attack at random. A smart missile is called “smart” because they have built-in seeking systems that let them home in on a target. They also rely on sensors from their home base, which enables the people at the home base to instruct the missile to return to its home base or it can be disarmed during flight. In the same way, guided missiles are directed or guided in flight toward a target either by a human who uses a remote control or by internal mechanisms.
In a similar fashion, God not only determines when an evil angel is to be dislodged, He also has pre-programmed the evil angels to travel only on paths and hit targets pre-determined by Him. They cannot attack at random. The “straight paths” that evil angels travel on can be compared to the path that a missile is programmed to follow through the air. Just as a missile launched from one country travels through the air to hit its target within another country, a principality that has been dislodged over one geographical area travels through the air until it reaches its target in another geographical area. However, this does not mean that we won’t see an outworking of a dislodged principality over the very geographical area from which they were dislodged. Again, the path evil angels travel on is pre-determined by the LORD.
If the attacks of principalities are not random, then the manifestation of the principalities that were dislodged from the heavens over Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and Caesarea Philippi will manifest in a way that will clearly show a correlation between the spiritual path that these principalities travelled after being dislodged and a correlation with their targets here in America. In other words, the paths and targets of the Ammonite principalities will in some way have something in common with the Jordanians, their gods of Islam and the Soldiers of Allah who serve them. Likewise, the principalities of Caesarea Philippi will have something in common with the attributes of Pan, especially fear, all travelling along a specific path. All of these wield the rod of wickedness over the specific geographical area from where the principalities were dislodged: the Old City of Jerusalem, the Jordan River and especially, Caesarea Philippi.
Take for example, the attack at Ft. Hood and the so-called “minor” breach of security at the White House. Both were located on the spiritual path that the Lord allowed the enemy to travel on after being dislodged in Israel and both Major Hasan and Tareq Salahi have ancestral ties in one way or another to either Jerusalem or Jordan. Both Hasan and Salahi are connected to longitude 77 degrees, which is significant as this was one of the straight paths on which the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack traveled.
Personal Revenge – The Spiritual Significance of 77
Spiritually, the number seventy-seven (77) can represent one of two opposing concepts: forgiveness or revenge. As Christians, we often think of “personal forgiveness” when we hear the number seventy-seven. When Jesus was asked by Peter how many times he was to forgive his brother when he sinned against him, Jesus told him seventy-seven times, meaning that we are to keep on forgiving our brother regardless of how many times they sin against us (Matthew 18:21-22).
On the other hand, seventy-seven also speaks of “personal revenge”. Lamech, a descendent of Cain, told his wives that he had killed a young man as revenge for wounding him. Lamech declared that if his ancestor Cain was avenged seven times (this was God’s promise to Cain – see Genesis 4:15), that he would be avenged seventy-seven times, again, an indefinite number (this was not God’s promise to Lamech – this was Lamech’s own vow). (Genesis 4:23-24) In other words, anyone who wronged or tried to wrong Lamech would pay dearly for their transgression.
Personal revenge is man’s way. Scripture, both the Old and New Testaments, teaches that we are not to avenge ourselves – this is for the Lord alone (Leviticus 19:18, Deuteronomy 32:35, Psalm 94:1, Romans 12:19-20, Matthew 5:38ff). God’s vengeance is perfect and complete. However, man’s vengeance only begets another man’s vengeance – it becomes a never-ending cycle – hence, 77 times.
Moreover, man’s vengeance, such as Lamech’s, is overly harsh. King David was keenly aware of this. When given a choice of punishments for sinning against God for taking a census, David did not hesitate. He did not want to fall into the hands of men, but instead, chose God’s punishment because of God’s great mercy (2 Samuel 24:14).
Sadly, America has taken Lamech’s way. America not only kills perceived foes (including anyone who gets in the way, i.e., innocent people), but we boast about the killings. This boasting, for example, the assassination of Taliban leaders, is found in newspaper headlines, government press statements and the internet. The killing has no limit and no end is in sight.
George Washington’s Path
George Washington, often referred to as “the father of his country”, took the path of revenge, not the path of forgiveness. One only has to look at Washington’s life to understand that he was a man who “avenged himself” and “his country” on a personal, national and international level. However, to avenge oneself or one’s country is not a righteous act; self-revenge does not equate to self-defense, as some have confused the one with the other.
George Washington wove into the very fabric of America the concept of personal revenge. Even today, America’s politicians not only justify the on-going attacks of retaliation against the terrorists who have attacked America but seek to avenge themselves against those who have done nothing more than say they believe in jihad. In other words, similar to Lamech, America’s politicians seek to kill even those who have only wounded or struck out at America with words.
Long before George Washington chose the geographical location of America’s Capitol, later identified as residing along longitude 77 degrees, he had already attached a spiritual significance to the number seventy-seven in relationship to the land. Washington’s political career began as a burgess in colonial Virginia’s House of Burgesses representing Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia. As their representative, Washington had to own land in Winchester and Frederick County before he could be elected to represent them.
Even though being a landowner was a prerequisite for all burgesses – from the beginning, Washington saw his own political career “spiritually tied to the land”. Anyone who has studied Scripture understands that there is a spiritual relationship between people and the land. Just ask the modern-day Israelites and the Palestinians in the on-going battle over which nation has “spiritual ownership” of Jerusalem. Both claim that God gave Jerusalem to their ancestors and even though the Palestinians are free to establish their seat of government anywhere within Palestine, they want Jerusalem as their capitol – land God gave to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants!
Obviously, there are those who want land for a spiritual reason other than keeping in agreement with God’s purposes. George Washington was one of those men! Throughout his lifetime, Washington used numbers and symbols to attach a spiritual significance to all things political whether it was on a personal, national or international level – especially when it came to land.
Lot 77: One of the first pieces of land that Washington ever owned was Lot 77 in Winchester, Virginia. As mentioned above, the significance of this particular lot is that it was one of the tracts of land that enabled Washington to begin his political career as a representative in the House of Burgesses. Given its significance, the Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society placed a marker on this particular piece of land as a memorial to George Washington (see below picture).
But, it is the spiritual significance that Washington attached to Lot 77 that reveals something about who he really was and how he would set about achieving his political goals, not only for himself but for the nation that would call him its father. George Washington never sold Lot 77 – it was only sold after his death. I am firmly convinced that Washington held on to this particular lot because of its symbolism. History bears witness that George Washington was fixated on the number 77 and because of his occult fixation, seventy-seven continues to have a spiritual impact on America.
George Washington was a man who also took matters into his own hands. Washington was determined to get what he wanted even at the expense of others. He justified the deaths of many innocent people to get what he wanted – a nation of his own! To have his own nation, Washington would have to avenge himself against Europe 77 times!
Longitude 77 and Divination: Latitude and longitude, measured in degrees north-south of the equator and east-west of the prime meridian respectively, are used in cartography and navigation to determine precise locations on the earth. Longitudinal lines are great circles – vertical lines drawn at equal distances around the circumference of the earth going through both the north and south poles. Latitude lines are parallel horizontal lines starting at the equator; only the latitude line at the equator is a great circle.
Although the equator is the single starting point for measuring latitude, there is no obvious point from which lines of longitude are measured. Even though America accepts Greenwich, England to be the “prime” meridian for international purposes, like many other countries, America determined their own prime meridians for domestic measurements and surveys.
For example, America had four separate prime meridians, all of which ran though Washington, DC. The first was established by Pierre Charles L’Enfant, the man chosen by George Washington to design America’s new capital city. L’Enfant was a man who knew how to design the new capital city that would express Washington’s true goals without revealing his true motives to the public.
More importantly, we need to keep in mind that it was George Washington who chose the geographical location to begin with and understand why he chose this particular site. Washington had an understanding of how the spiritual related to the natural realm from an occult point of view. For that reason, he would only have chosen a geographical site for our nation’s Capitol because of the pre-existing spiritual lines over that geographical area. The existence of these spiritual lines or paths over our nations’ capital would bring the natural and spiritual together. In other words, Washington had already predetermined that our nation’s Capitol and city would be built on a specific line: longitude 77.
With this same understanding and relying upon his own knowledge of spiritual lines and how they relate to the natural, then and only then was L’Enfant able to determine where America’s Capitol building itself should be placed. The dome of the Capitol would be centered over the pre-existing prime spiritual line, which came to be known as America’s first domestic prime meridian line and also longitude 77.
In other words, the spiritual lines were the determining factor as to where to build the nation’s Capitol – it was not the location of the Capitol that determined where America’s first domestic prime meridian would be established as some think. Moreover, this particular meridian or spiritual line was L’Enfant’s starting point for the original layout of the nation’s capital.
Whether it was America’s first prime meridian that runs thought the center of the Capitol or the second prime meridian established by Andrew Ellicott and Benjamin Banneker, known as the “16th Street meridian”, divination was part of the process. Divination, a type of witchcraft, is the way that spiritual lines are discovered by those practicing occultism – they cannot be established through natural means. Thus, divination was very much part of the surveying process in determining the geographical location of America’s new capital, a location that had to be somewhere on longitude 77 to be conducive to occult spiritual activity.
The Dots Connect – The Spiritual Path of Personal Revenge: Path 77
Spiritually, the following all have one thing in common: 77 degrees longitude
· Mount Vernon, George Washington’s plantation just south of Alexandria, Virginia.
· Our Nation’s Capital, Washington, DC
· The White House
· The Dar al-Hijra Mosque located in Falls Church, Virginia with the following spiritual ties:
o Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, spiritual leader at the Dar al-Hijra Mosque, now a spiritual advisor to al-Qaeda
o Three of the 911 terrorists attended Dar al-Hijra Mosque
o Terrorist Major Hasan who also attended the Dar al-Hijra Mosque
· The Pentagon, into which 911 terrorists crashed American Airlines Flight 77
· Alexandria, Virginia – home of five American men now jailed in Pakistan on terrorism charges
· New Deli, India (77 degrees east longitude), the capital of the nation honored at the White House state dinner that the Salahi’s crashed
· Hume, Virginia
o Location of Salahi’s father’s vineyard and boyhood home of Tareq Salahi
o Location where George Washington learned to perfect his surveying skills
· Mount Pleasant (neighborhood) in Washington, DC, home of Carlos Allen, an acquaintance of the Salahi’s who, like the Salahi’s, also crashed the State Dinner for the leader of India 
· Fairfax Station, Virginia, home of Harold Brown, one of the seven Americans who perished at the CIA Intelligence Base in Afghanistan when an al-Qaeda terrorist evaded security and detonated a bomb
Seventy-seven identifies one of the spiritual paths that the enemy has access to travel on and avenge themselves and this is one of the spiritual cords that binds together all of the people and places mentioned above. This is not just happenstance! As described above, principalities do not attack at random and for that reason we should not be surprised that a cleric from a Mosque located on longitude 77 would be connected to the terrorists who hijacked flight American Airlines flight 77 and flew this plane into the Pentagon which sits on longitude 77.
The connection between George Washington and 77 has already been made concerning his ownership of lot 77, the location of the federal city and the location of our nation’s Capitol. Not surprisingly, Washington’s home (plantation), Mount Vernon, was located on longitude 77 and it was here on longitude 77 that Washington died and was buried.
However, the spiritual significance of 77 continues in the lives and politics of Americans today. For example, the White House dinner the Salahi’s breached was in honor of the leader of India whose capital, New Deli, is located on longitude 77 (east). The Salahi owns 5% of the family vineyard, which is located in Hume, Virginia, is on longitude 77. Hume, Virginia is the childhood home of Tareq Salahi, and interestingly, it was in Hume, Virginia that George Washington learned to perfect his surveying skills.
In addition to Tareq Salahi and his wife a third man was also able to breach White House security the same night the Salahi’s did. Like the Salahi’s, Carlos Allen’s place of residence is in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC, also on longitude 77. Most interestingly, all three are acquaintances.
In December 2009, after traveling to Pakistan (the Salahi family’s ancestral home), five young American citizens from Alexandria, Virginia were arrested on charges of planning terrorist attacks against American troops abroad who they considered to be infidels. These five young men are from the hometown of George Washington and that it was from there – on longitude 77, the spiritual path of personal revenge – that the five young men began their journey of personal revenge against America.
On December 30, 2009 the CIA Intelligence Base in Afghanistan, believing they were about to make a major breakthrough in finding Osama bin Laden, were themselves struck a grievous blow by the very informer they thought would lead them to bin Laden. The informer, a Jordanian nationalist who had gained the trust of the CIA, was able to evade security and double-crossed the CIA Intelligence Officers by detonating a bomb, killing himself, seven Americans and his Jordanian handler.
One of the seven Americans killed was Harold Brown, a resident of Fairfax Station, Virginia. Unknowingly, Harold Brown was the point of contact for the enemy being allowed to enter the CIA compound to take revenge. Brown’s home in Fairfax Station is located on longitude 77. It was this spiritual point of contact on longitude 77 that allowed the enemy access to strike the CIA compound and avenge themselves of the death of one of their leaders.
Underlying all of this are the fear and indeed, panic, amongst the American public. Terrorism is defined by Webster’s dictionary as “a systematic use of terror” with terror being further defined as “violent or destructive acts (as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands”. However, terrorism works only if fear and panic are generated as a result of the terrorist’s attacks.
In this context, the terrorists are winning victory after victory over America. Much of our country lives in fear today – just ask any New York City resident. Fear and panic are fueled by the media, which goes far beyond just reporting the news by demanding a response from the government to “fix things”. If something is not done immediately, the media becomes relentless in its demands. When the government does take action, it usually only reinforces our fears. For example, we are constantly reminded of our fears with the overbearing and extremely ineffective security measures at airports. Our rights to privacy and other freedoms are increasingly being encroached upon by the government’s surveillance of American citizens, and the list goes on.
In the spiritual realm, much of the fear and panic is a manifestation of the principality, Pan (the god of fear). Not coincidentally, our reactionary laws, which only generate more fears, are made in our nation’s Capitol – longitude 77.
The Enemy Avenges Themselves against America
The enemy was given access to specific pathways because of the spiritual cords that were created as a result of the sins of America’s Founding Fathers. The straight paths (spiritual lines) that the enemy had legal access to travel on when terrorists attacked America on September 11, 2001 were Path 11, Path 77 and Path 40.44. These pathways are described in detail in the chart found in Appendix A of this paper. For the purposes of this paper, the focus is on Path 77 and its multiple connections to Hasan, his spiritual advisor, Anwar al-Awlaki, Yemen, ancestral home to Osama bin Laden and the birth place of al-Qaeda, and others.
Like Lamech who avowed to be avenged 77 times, terrorists are avenging themselves against Americans, who have justified crossing the sea and invading their land, killing their men, women and children who were not even at war with America. In retaliation for these terrorist attacks, America avenges themselves once again by attacking those who they feel are attacking America. And, the cycle goes on 77 times.
In a pre-recorded video, the CIA suicide bomber, Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi, said that all jihadists must attack United States targets to avenge the death of Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud, who was killed in August by a CIA missile strike. Al-Balawi warned that even though he took revenge by striking the CIA’s base in Afghanistan, that the Soldiers of Allah would seek revenge for the death of Mehsud many times over (77 times).
The CIA had admitted that the deaths of their agents in Afghanistan are a major blow to the CIA – one from which it will take years to recover. Of course, America wants to retaliate for this incident. America will not stop killing others they feel responsible for the incident, including innocent non-combatants, until they feel avenged. The spiritual path of revenge will continue to be travelled until America’s lawmakers bow their knee to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and let God avenge, if vengeance is justified.
The Final Connections
Below are the final “dots” to be connected, including Major Hasan, Tareq Salahi, al-Bawali, the timing of events and the country of Jordan.
· Major Hasan’s ancestry is Jordanian (ancestor of the ancient Ammonites) – from his father’s side (his father immigrated to America from Jordan)
· He was a Muslim who believed in jihad (a Soldier of Allah)
· Spiritual points of contact for the Ammonite principality to work through:
o Hasan’s Jordanian nationality
· He is of Palestinian descent from his father’s side (his father immigrated to the United States from Jerusalem)
· He is a board member of the “American Task Force on Palestine”, which favors a Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital – land that belongs to Israel
· Spiritual points of contact for the Ammonite principality to work through:
o Longitude 77 – Salahi’s boyhood home and the winery in which he owns 5% is located in Hume, Virginia. The Salahi and his wife were married in The Cathedral of Saint Matthew the Apostle in Washington, DC
Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi: (CIA suicide bomber)
· Like Major Hasan, al-Balawi was a Jordanian nationalist who wanted to take revenge against Americans
· He was a Muslim who believed in jihad
· Spiritual points of contact for the Ammonite principality to work through:
o Al-Bawali’s Jordanian nationality
o The revenge in his heart
o Longitude 77 – the residence of Harold Brown, one of the seven Americans killed in the bombing, in Fairfax Station, Virginia
Daniel 10 reveals that from the very day Daniel set his heart to understand the things the Lord had been showing him that an angel came to give Daniel the understanding. Yet for 21 days, this angel was detained by principalities who were trying to prevent him from reaching Daniel with the understanding for which he had prayed.
It was 21 days after I had prayed on the land in Israel that the Lord started to give me the understanding concerning the principalities that were dislodged from the heavens and what their wrath might look like. The first understanding was it was the wrath of the principality that was dislodged that manifested through Major Hasan and his attack on Fort Hood.
To understand the twenty-one days, it is important to understand the time and day differences between the time I spoke at the Temple Mount on October 17, 2009 and Hasan’s attack on Fort Hood on November 5, 2009.
· Date of the attack. Major Hasan attacked Ft. Hood at 1:30 pm (CDT) on November 5, 2009. However, in Israel, it was already November 6th. Israel was seven hours ahead of America (CDT) at the time, which meant that it was 8:30 pm in Israel when Hasan attacked Ft. Hood. Jewish days begin at sunset rather than at midnight. The 6th of November for Israel began at 4:46 pm local time (approximately four hours before the attack at Ft. Hood).
· Twenty-one Days: Taking into account that I was in Israel when I prayed on the land, then the 21 days must be based on Israel’s calendar – not America’s. In other words, Major Hasan’s attack occurred 21 days from the day that I prayed on the land in Israel (October 17, 2009 to November 6, 2009, inclusive).
The “point of contact” that determined what principality was dislodged was Jordan. Both places that I went to on October 17th to pray were directly connected to Jordan.
· Jordan wrongly shares joint authority with Israel at the Old City of Jerusalem
o Jordan has civil and religious authority over the Old City of Jerusalem while Israel has military authority
o The first place that I read Scripture was at the Western Wall located within the Old City
· Jordan wrongly shares joint authority with Israel over the Jordan River
o The second place that I read Scripture was at the headwaters of the Jordan River located at Caesarea Philippi
o The Jordan River forms the western boundary between Jordan and Israel’s West Bank
o The Jordan River played a main role in the historical disagreements between Israel and Jordan, both who claim historical rights to the Jordan River, including a disagreement that contributed to the outbreak of the Six Day War
o At present, Israel and Jordan have both agreed to share the Jordan River
Conflicts over the Jordan River date back to Biblical times.
Judges 7  And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. (emphasis added)
· Major Hasan is a Muslim born of Jordanian parents. Like the Muslim Jordanians who are Soldiers of Allah, Major Hasan also identified himself as a Soldier of Allah.
What happened at Ft. Hood is actually connected to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America, as well. America’s subsequent attack on Iraq, Hussein’s capture and American troops on foreign soil are all connected to Islam and the Muslim religion.
The only one President Obama and future Presidents can Trust in is the LORD: President Obama may soon find that he will have greater trials and sufferings than just White House Security being breached. President Obama is in a situation where he may be exposed to a much greater danger from a much more powerful foe. Moreover, he should not trust in the Secret Service. Like Jeremiah, President Obama is in a situation where even some of his own staff and security will betray him when they have it in their power. (Jeremiah 12:6)
Jeremiah 12  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?  For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee. (emphasis added)
From this point on, the White House needs to prepare themselves for a more powerful enemy that will seek to breach White House Security. The question is, how will the White House and all of America respond when the powerful horsemen (like the footmen) eventually breach America’s security?
Whether it is the Soldiers of Allah or those countrymen who give the impression they are less threatening, both are manifestations of the ground attacks yet to come, both here in America and abroad, wherever American’s set up strongholds in enemy territory.
Another manifestation of the ground attacks to come is found in the December 30, 2009 attack on the CIA Intelligence Base, referred to above, that delivered a devastating blow to U.S. efforts in Afghanistan. Jeremiah 12:5 refers to the “swelling of the Jordan”. When this happens, the wild animals in the thickets are forced from their hiding places because of the rising water only to wreak havoc throughout the countryside. This is what happened with the CIA suicide bomber, Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi.
The Jordanian and American governments thought that al-Balawi, a Jordanian, could lead them to the inner circle of Osama bin Laden. Because of his perceived value, Jordanian authorities arrested him and threatened him with jail, harm to his wife and two children, and to end his medical career if he did not agree to become an informer for them. He was forced by the Jordanian government to leave his home in Jordan and under pretense of furthering his education, moved to Pakistan. Prior to this coercion, al-Balawi was a doctor by profession and although sympathetic to al-Qaeda goals, was not known to be an active jihadist.
Spiritually, al-Balawi was symbolic of one of the wild animals forced to flee the overflowing of the Jordan River that was coming against he and his family when he agreed to be an informer for the Jordanian and American governments. Like the wild animals, he too roamed the countryside to wreak havoc, killing those who had forced him to leave his home. In his pre-recorded video, al-Bawali made it clear that he desperately wanted to take revenge against America. Consequently, the Ammonite principality that had been dislodged from the heavens was able to manifest its wrath through al-Bawali because he was a Jordanian, the modern day offspring of the Ammonites, with wrath already in his heart.
Just as the LORD asked Jeremiah what he would do if he found himself in a situation when men, like the wild animals, were forced to flee the overflowing Jordan – America needs to ask what are American’s going to do now that they are forcing their enemies to leave their hiding places? America would be wise not to contribute to the “overflowing of the Jordan”. In other words, when America forces Jordanians or others they consider to be their enemy to come out of hiding and cooperate with their intelligence people, they can expect these people to react in the same way the wild animals of the Jordan acted: they will wreak havoc against America and not against America’s enemies.
Jeremiah 12:6 also speaks of betrayal and it was through betrayal that al-Bawali was able to wreak havoc with America. Al-Bawali was considered to be a “double agent”, meaning he betrayed his Jordanian handler as well. However, whether the CIA ever admits it or not, evidence points to the fact that his Jordanian handler, a captain in the Jordanian army, was also a double agent of the same ilk as al-Bawali who wanted to take revenge on America.
The Knights of Santiago: It may be several years before we know if Muslim troops from the mid East will actually invade America and patrol our neighborhoods as the American troops are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan, or if the Soldiers of Allah will come just from within or both. In any case, it will happen.
Knights of Santiago: The weapons of war that are being turned back inside the gates of America and the nations that wield them are multifaceted. Just as other nations in Psalm 83 came to the aid of the descendants of Lot to form a coalition against Israel, the descendants of the Knights of Santiago are entering the gates of America as well. (See article entitled, “The American Crusade”)
Like the Soldiers of Allah – the descendants of the “Knights of Santiago” have raised a “War Cry” against America. They too want to see America destroyed as a nation. Like the Soldiers of Allah, they are a threat to the safety of the President of the United States as well as America as a whole.
Interestingly, several weeks after beginning this article, including the above reference to a descendent of the Knights of Santiago, the public learned that Carlos Allen, a native of Colon, Panama, also successfully breached White House security the same evening as the Salahi’s.
The time is coming when Americans will realize they are being attacked from all fronts and they will not know whom to trust!
The War in the Heavenly Realm:
In a sense, wars fought on earth are a manifestation of the wars fought in the heavenly realm. Wars fought on earth are not decided overnight because the wars in the heavenly realm are not fought overnight. Moreover, those principalities lower in rank come down before those who are higher in rank.
On Earth as in Heaven: We will see a manifestation of the war in the heavens here on earth as the different principalities are cast to the earth. For example, the principality operating through Hasan is among the first to fall. However, when the principalities of higher rank fall, their wrath will manifest here in America on a much larger scale. More than just one Muslim will be bringing his wrath against Americans, both here and abroad.
For example, when we prayed on the land at the US Capitol on December 13, 1998, the LORD gave me the understanding that Babylon would be attacked within four days. Four days later, America (under the leadership of President Clinton) attacked by bombing an area in Iraq approximately 80 miles outside Babylon. This attack was the beginning of the birth pangs for Iraq that resulted in the eventual capture of Saddam Hussein years later under the leadership of President Bush. Saddam Hussein, the self-proclaimed modern day king of Babylon, was found underneath the ground to the day and hour that we spoke the “Taunt to the King of Babylon” in the sub-basement of the US Capitol.
From a secular perspective, the reasons for Americans being on Iraqi and Afghanistan soil are just that: secular. However, from a spiritual perspective it is a holy war in the sense that the gods of Islam are fighting against the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – a war they will not win.
One of the weapons of war that America is using to fight against Iraq and Afghanistan was to invade the borders of both countries and wage war against them from within their own borders. Now, that weapon of war has been turned back on America! At this point in time, the Soldiers of Allah are fighting against America from within the borders of America!
America has invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, two nations that believe the attacks amount to a holy war against their religion, Islam, and specifically against their god, Allah. They have repeatedly requested that America leave their soil, only to have their requests rejected. At this point, it is not really clear why America remains on foreign soil. What is clear is that many civilians have been killed by America troops, not to mention the loss of American lives.
Even before this paper was finished, America was attacked once again!
On December 25, 2009, even before this paper was finished, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian nationalist with ties to Yemen flew from Nigeria to Amsterdam and there boarded a flight bound to Detroit, Michigan. He tried unsuccessfully to bring down the U.S. aircraft on which he was a passenger as it made its approach into Detroit with an incendiary device that he attempted to ignite.
“I’m the First of Many”, Warns Airline Bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab: Abdulmutallab, told FBI agents after his arrest that he had received the explosive materials from al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Yemen, which is home to Major Hasan’s spiritual advisor, Anwar al-Awlaki and the ancestral home of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. Further, he warned that he was only one of many with plans to attack America.
The Attack was in Retaliation to American Aggression on Yemen: Abdulmutallab told investigators that there were more just like him who would continue to attack America. The sustained terror campaign Abdulmutallab spoke of was echoed in a statement issued by Al-Qaeda four days after Abdulmutallab’s attack. In their statement, Al-Qaeda forewarned America of unrelenting attacks against America in retaliation to the American Aggression on Yemen.
U.S. Backed Yemeni Air Strike Kills at least 30: The retaliation was in response to Yemeni government forces, backed by America, who launched air raids on suspected Al-Qaeda militants on December 17, 2009 and again on December 24, 2009 that resulted in the deaths of approximately 60 people. Less than 24 hours before Abdulmutallab attempted to blow up the American airliner, Yemen officials, with America’s backing, ordered an air strike on a suspected al-Qaeda site, which was actually the home of Hasan’s spiritual advisor Anwar al-Awlaki. Even though al-Awlaki’s home was destroyed and at least 30 who were meeting there at the time were killed in the airstrike, reports indicate that Anwar al-Awlaki probably was not present. Intelligence officials are still trying to verify whether al-Awlaki was one of the 30 who were killed.
This raises an interesting question, one pose by Dr. Nasser al-Awlaki, the Yemeni father of Anwar al-Awlaki. He stated to CNN that, “I will do my best to convince my son to do this [surrender], to come back, but they are not giving me time, they want to kill my son. How can the American government kill one of their own citizens? This is a legal issue that needs to be answered.” (emphasis added) In other words, how can the U.S. Government, in effect, assassinate an American citizen living abroad without the due process of law?
America Creates their own Warfare: Any attacks on al-Awlaki will surely result in aggressive and unrelenting retaliation against America, on America soil as well as abroad. America believes that if they kill men like al-Awlaki, whom they believe are a threat to America, it will discourage others from speaking out against America and from participating in jihad. However, they are only creating their own warfare. America’s actions only reinforce that America is the enemy of Islam and the Soldiers of Allah will become more determined in fighting back. It’s obvious that America’s actions only produce retaliation.
Americans, at least some, are beginning to realize that Al-Qaeda’s threats of successfully attacking America are more than just rhetoric. The realization that Al-Qaeda’s declaration of an all-out war against America is more than just a threat has rekindled an unsettling fear for many living “within the gates of America”.
A New Weapon of War – The Right to Remain Silent: The Christmas Day attack by Abdulmutallab has produced a new weapon of war for the enemy to use against America: the right to remain silent. Because Abdulmutallab is being charged as a criminal and not as a terrorist, he has been confined in a Detroit jail, assigned a court-appointed lawyer (paid for by U.S. taxpayers) and has the right to remain silent!
America is helpless. Abdulmutallab cannot be interrogated about national or international accomplices, training, the source of chemicals to make his bomb or other extremely important details concerning his terrorist attack. This is just another example of our own weapons being turned against us.
Life in America will never be the same, no matter how many promises our politicians make to keep America secure. Even if there is never another attack – fear has already entered into America’s gate – and the fear of being attacked is the real weapon of war that Al-Qaeda is wielding over America.
The U.S. Military’s Decision to remove Scripture References from Rifle Sights is Prophetic
On January 18, 2010, the news media revealed that Scripture references have been inscribed on rifle sights used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan, something that is against military guidelines. In keeping with these guidelines, the U.S. military has taken measures to ensure that all Scripture references are removed from the existing sights and no Scripture references will be included with future purchases. Although the decision made to remove the Scriptures is in accordance to military policy, it is also prophetic, even though the military is not aware of its prophetic meaning.
This spoke he not of himself. As the hearts of all men are in God’s hands, so are the words they speak – even the words of those who oppose God’s purposes. Like the High Priest, Caiaphas, who unknowingly spoke prophetically about Jesus (John 11:50), the words and actions of America’s military have a spiritual significance that they do not and cannot understand because of the intent of their hearts.
John 11  Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.  And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation
God can and does use men and militaries who do not understand His purposes, to serve His purposes unknowingly, contrary to their own intentions. Caiaphas is a good example of this. In spite of Caiaphas’s hatred for Jesus and unknown to Caiaphas, God used him to utter a prophecy about Jesus Christ. The words of Caiaphas held a truth that Caiaphas had not intended. The death of Christ did indeed benefit the Jewish nation and the world – just not in the way Caiaphas thought or desired.
God is removing His Support. Romans 13:1-6 reveals that the Lord has delegated authority to governments - all governments – to bear a sword to “execute wrath upon him that doeth evil”. Obviously, all governments use this sword to deal with those who commit crimes in their own nation. As already pointed out at the beginning of this paper, at times God will ordain one nation to wield the sword against another nation. However, America abused the power of the sword they had been authorized to carry when they went too far in their military attacks in the Middle East to further their own personal agenda. For that reason, the Lord will not come to the aid of America as they continue to wield the sword in their own strength.
Since God is in control of all things, there are spiritual truths behind natural events. The natural event is America removing Scripture from their rifle gun sights and in effect, taking God out of the war. The spiritual truth behind this is that God (Yahweh), by allowing this to happen, is actually taking Himself out of the war, removing His support of America because they went too far. In the process, God is exposing the hardness and heart intent of the U.S. military, which is twofold: 1) not to violate the Constitution, which shows no favoritism of religions (i.e., Yahweh is the same as Allah), and 2) they don’t need Yahweh because they can fight the war in their own strength. Thus, another weapon of war has been turned back on America.
America’s Sword and its High-Powered Rifle Sights. America’s politicians, including our Presidents, have attempted in vain to convince the Muslim world that America is not at war with Islam. Nonetheless, as already pointed out in this paper and our other writings, America is indeed fighting in a holy war. God, not America, determines the nature of a war and the weapons to be used!
To the surprise of many Americans and America’s politicians, is the fact that the “sword” that America has been wielding against those in the Muslim nations has New Testament Scriptures engraved on their rifle sights. Even more interesting, America’s military has been using these rifles to train the very Muslims that they have been assuring that America is not fighting against Islam. In other words, many Muslims have been unknowingly bearing rifles engraved with Scriptures that lift up Jesus as the true Messiah.
Stealth War. The U.S. military has stated that they were not aware of the Bible verses when they purchased the rifle sights. The military is concerned about and admits that this fact could be turned back on them by those Muslims who have long maintained that America has been engaged in a “stealth” war against Islam. In fact, many Islamic clerics have long maintained that the United States’ War on Terror is really a holy war against Islam. Now, it will be almost impossible for America to convince the Arab nations that they are not secretly fighting against Islam.
Men whose own strength is their god. As prophecy has more than one meaning, removing Scripture references from rifle sights speaks of America’s perceived pride in her own strength to dominate in war. Like ancient Babylon bent on conquering everything in its path, it seems that America is going from nation to nation in their effort to conquer all (Habakkuk 1:5-11). However, America’s pride in past military victories may prove to be their downfall.
When men take pride in their own strength – strength apart from God – that strength becomes a god in their lives, a god of their own making. Their strength becomes idolatry (Habakkuk 1:11). As a nation, America attributes their successes to their own abilities. America’s government has become overconfident of their own might.
A haughty spirit raised up before God will surely bow its knee and fall in the sight of God and all other nations. America takes pride in being a world power. That perceived power has become one of America’s gods. Even though the victory of any battle is determined by the Lord, many nations attribute their successes in war to their own abilities. In other words, their own power becomes their god.
Habakkuk 1  Then they sweep by like a wind and pass on, and they load themselves with guilt, [as do all men] whose own power is their god. (Amplified Bible)
As stated at the beginning of this paper, the Lord used America to chasten Iraq just as He used Assyria to chasten ancient Israel (Isaiah 10). Yet, like the Assyrians, America has gone beyond chastening to further their own personal agenda, both in Iraq and in neighboring nations, at the expense of many innocent people. Because of that, the weapons of war have been turned back upon America and consequently, our nation is facing many hardships.
Now, to add to their sins of abusing the sword they have been authorized to carry, America’s government has let it be known to all of America and the world that they will accomplish their worldwide goals in their own strength. But, let it be known, they “do not speak on their own”. Their words and actions are prophetic – just not in the way they intended!
The Constitution Won a Carnal Battle. It has been pointed out that America boldly declares they consult no oracle other than the Constitution. Therefore, we should not be surprised that when the decision was made to remove all Scriptural references from military rifle sights that Michael L. Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, declared, “The Constitution won today”. He, like the many others who cited America’s Constitution, may have won a carnal battle, yet they are losing the spiritual battle being fought in the heavens and here on earth.
Now we wait for America, in all her might and strength, to be humbled in a way we have yet to witness. Though the appointed time lingers, it will certainly come!
