Did The Bible Predict
WORLD WAR Two?
here is Adolf Hitler or Nazi Germany mentioned in the Bible? Does scripture refer to Benito Mussolini and his Fascist Italy? Does the Bible mention Pope Pius XII? What about Stalin's Russia and Hirohito's Japan? Are these the "kings of the east" (rising sun)? How does God view Winston Churchill and the British Empire and Franklin Roosevelt's United States? Were they his instruments in some higher purpose? Does prophecy mention this extremely destructive Nazi-Fascist Axis? Was its doom foretold?
Was World War Two A Religious War?
We use the historicist interpretation of Bible prophecy. But first a background. The Second
World War was a religious war. Roman Catholic Europe against Protestant
Great Britain, Protestant United States and European Jews. Jesuits for
many centuries battled Judaism, Freemasonry and Protestantism because
these are the three chief advocates of tolerance for other religions (than
Catholicism) and they teach that other men have rights (not just Catholics).
The ideas of the rights of man, of freedom of conscience, freedom of speech
and freedom of press are heresies to Catholics. They think Papal Rome
exclusively has all truth and all rights. But Catholicism is not the true
religion. Protestants and Jews believe that in an atmosphere of the free
exchange of contradictory ideas, where there is no coercion or intimidation,
the truth will prevail against lies. (pp.3-11, Behind the Dictators by
The Pope payed for this revolution
in gold which passed through Germany into Russia in 1917 with Lenin. It
was estimated to be worth 666 million dollars (Leon Trotsky by Carmichael,
p.171; The Sealed Train by Pearson, p.290). Hitler approved of the indisputability
of Catholic dogmas (p.293), of intolerant Catholic education (p.385),
of the necessity of blind Catholic faith (p.417), of the infallibility
of the Pope (p.507) and of required celibacy of the Catholic clergy (p.513).
Hitler disapproved of Protestants protecting Jews (p.123) (Behind the
Dictators by Lehmann, pp. 33-34).
Adolf Hitler hated Protestants and Jews. He said, "I reject that book ...It was written by a Protestant. It is not a party book ... as a Catholic I never feel comfortable in the evangelical church or its structures ... as for the Jews, I am just carrying on with the same policy which the Catholic Church has adopted for fifteen hundred years, when it has regarded the Jews as dangerous and pushed them into ghettos, etc., because it knew what the Jews were like. I don't put race above religion, but I do see the danger in the representatives of this race for church and state, and perhaps I am doing Christianity a great service" (The Nazi Persecution of the Churches by Conway, pp. 25-26, 162).
Ironically, Hitler's ancestry included Jewish blood. An ancestor by the name of "Salomon" was kept a secret. Another relative, Aloisa Feit, was schizophrenic. Willy Hitler threatened to expose Adolf to the English press if Adolf didn't pay him money to help his finances. After conquering Austria, Adolf Hitler destroyed Dollersheim -- the city of his ancestry -- to keep his ancestry a secret.
Furthermore, there was rampant homosexuality in the highest ranks of the NAZI SA -- Rohm included. Hitler had probably been a male prostitute in Vienna and Rohm knew too much about Hitler's troubled past. Maybe they were former lovers since Rohm aided Hitler's rise to power. Therefore Hitler had Rohm and five of his top aides executed for "debauchery" after arresting them during the "Night of the Long Knives" June 30, 1934.
Hitler's Doctor Morrel was a Syphilis and VD specialist who gave him daily doses of Septoid (Iodide salt) -- the standard treatment for Syphilis. Hitler devoted 14 pages of Mein Kampf to Syphilis. He had all the symptoms of Syphilis (except slurred speech) -- skin lesions, gastro-intestinal pains, and deteriorating vision. Doctor Morrel also gave Hitler daily doses of methamphetamines plus one-half gram of stricknine and one-half gram deadly nightshade daily. On one occasion Adolf Hitler was seen rolling around on the floor saying, "Ich bin von himmel gefallen" meaning "I have fallen from heaven." Christ said, "I beheld SATAN as lightning FALL from HEAVEN" (Luke 10:18). "How art thou FALLEN from HEAVEN, O LUCIFER" (Isa. 14:12-15). This indicates Hitler may have been demon-possessed as the frog symbolism indicates (Rev. 16:13).
Who Were The Three FROGS?
"And I saw three unclean spirits like FROGS come out of the mouth of the dragon (Pagan Roman Empire), and out of the mouth of the beast (Papal Roman Empire), and out of the mouth of the false prophet (Papacy). For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth (Roman Catholic Europe) and of the whole world (worldwide war), to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty(1945). 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 (lit. "they") gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon" (Rev. 16:13-16)
Who are the three "FROGS"? Frogs are camoflaged, carnivorous PREDATORS with very big mouths (appetites) who haunt stagnant pools. Therefore the "drying up" of the Euphrates is appropriate imagery for FROGS to start appearing. Recall that British Imperial troops completed the drying-up process by driving the Turks out of Egypt, Palestine, Syria and Mesopotamia which included the actual valley of the Euphrates itself between 1914-1918. "The mighty men of Edom shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs" (Jer. 49:22). "I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel" (Ez. 25:14).. The SECOND plague against Egypt was FROGS (Ex. 8:3) so Pharaoh, the god-king, would "Let my people go." In the same way, the SECOND World War against Europe was NAZI-FASCISM which gobbled up and devastated all Europe, particularly the ROMAN CATHOLIC nations of Poland, Austria, Hungary, Germany, France and Italy, whose cities were bombed and their lands turned into battlegrounds. The slaughter of millions upon millions of both civilians and soldiers, the millions of homeless and refugees, the disintegration of the nations was so the Pope, the god-king, would "Let European Christians obey the Bible." FROGS can swim under water (submarines), on the surface (ships), walk on land (tanks) or hop through the air (planes) -- just like the armies of Hitler and Mussolini. The frog SWELLS while it croaks. Therefore, its a familiar symbol of ARROGANT claims put forth with NOISY PERSISTENCY. EVIL PROPAGANDA is therefore the persistent croakings of FROGS all night long. "FALSE teachers ... speak great SWELLING words of vanity ... they promise ... liberty" but they themselves "are the servants of CORRUPTION" (2 Pet. 2:1-19). The three demon-inspired ideologies were represented by FROGS
The first FROG came from the "dragon" of Satanic PAGANISM -- German NAZISM -- which began in 1923 represented by the swastika. In Egypt, Tibet, China, India and Japan the OCCULT swastika was used as a MAGIC charm to protect from harm. Hitler's NAZISM advocated restoring the worship of ancient gods and the destruction of Christianity. Hitler probably borrowed from the German philosopher Nietzsche (born 1844), who, after writing several books, became mad. He called Christianity "the one great curse," taught that "might is right" and declared himself "God." He claimed "Odin is greater than Jehovah." German "Higher Criticism" of the Bible also PAGANIZED Germany. The aim of Hitler and the NAZIS was to restore the Holy Roman Empire. Hitler's name "Schicklgruber" actually adds up to 667 in the following manner: S=100, C=3, H=8, I=9, C=3, K=20, L=30, G=7, R=90, U=300, B=2, E=5, R=90
The second FROG came from the beast or Roman Empire -- Italian FASCISM -- which began in 1922. Mussolini's Italian FASCES symbol was identical with the Imperial Roman FASCES (sticks bound around an axe), the symbol of power in the ancient Roman Empire that Mussolini was trying to restore. A common poster in Italy in World War Two was "VV IL DVCE" or "Viva Il Duce" which adds up to 666. (5 + 5 + 1 + 50 + 500 + 5 + 100 = 666.)
The third FROG came from the "false prophet" of Roman CATHOLICISM -- the Pope -- whose temporal power was partially restored by the Lateran Treaty or Concordat of February 1929 with Mussolini through the creation of the Vatican City within Rome. The POPE gave his blessing to Fascism whose aim was the revival of the Papal Roman Empire in Europe. The Pope's official title is "Vicarius Filii Dei" meaning "Vicar of the Son of God." This title adds up to 666. V=5,I=1, C=100, A=0, R=0, I=1, V=5, S=0, F=0, I=1, L=50, I=1, I=1, D=500, E=0, I=1.
The Pope wasn't neutral. Pope Pius XI congratulated Mussolini and distributed sacred amulets to the Italian troops going to Ethiopia in 1935. He sent Francisco Franco his blessing in the Spanish Civil War against democracy and liberty (falsely called Communism) and presented Franco's soldiers with victory medals in 1936. Why? Because the Spanish Republic, after discovering dead baby bodies buried under the convents, had dared abolish Catholic tax exemption for the vast domains of the Pope and had taken schools out of the hands of the Catholic Church and told the Jesuits to leave. German and Italian bombers did a truly devastating job for Franco. In 1942 the Pope welcomed the Japanese ambassador to the Vatican. In 1943 Pope Pius XII's New Year's message was anti-Communist, thus supporting the Axis against the Soviet Union.(p.50, 96-97 of ibid.)
Where was "ARMAGEDDON"?
World War Two was not fought in Megiddo, but mainly in western Europe.
That is the prophetic location of "Armageddon" just as the prophetic
location of "Babylon" is western Europe -- not a city in the
Middleast. Not ancient literal Babylon, but "The daughter of Babylon
is like a threshing floor; it is time to thresh her" (Jer. 51:33).
Two of Israel's greatest victories were at Megiddo: Barak defeated the
Canaanites there and Gideon defeated the Midianites there, so "MEGIDDO"
is any "theater of battle" where Israel's enemies are defeated.These
three FROGS gathered the armies of the world to "Armageddon"
where they met their doom. Ancient coins and banners of France show three
FROGS. Three FROGS are the old arms of France from the wars of Clovis
in the tapestry of Rheims. In A.D. 496 , Clovis, King of the Franks, was
styled by the Pope, "the eldest son of the Church." In World
War Two, France was conquered by all three FROGS and was the location
of "Armageddon." In southwestern France we find the province
August 23, 1939 a Nazi-Soviet
nonaggression pact was signed. Then in June 22, 1941 "Operation Barbarossa"
began exactly 666 days later. But just as ancient Babylon was conquered
by Medo-Persia symbolized by a "BEAR," so also western Europe
(Papal Babylon) was conquered by Russia (the Medes -- Ukraine and the
Persians -- East and West Prussia) whose national emblem is a BEAR. Stalin
ordered Russian troops to move into the territory of the former "Euphrates"
power called Turkey in order to defeat the Nazi-Fascist "Babylon".
Then Romania, Yugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria and Hungary were made atheistic
and Communist, preparatory to the final onslaught on western Europe when
"Babylon comes to remembrance before God." The "cities"
of the "nations" fell both literally by being bombed, and, in
the Baltic States, the Balkan States and Eastern Europe, by forsaking
Roman Catholic civilization and accepting atheistic Soviet Communism.
The fall of China with its 450,000,000 to Communism and the millions who
have followed suit in south-east Asia since 1945, all helped to make "a
great and mighty earthquake, such as never was."
But where does Imperial Japan fit into prophecy? Japan was also one of the "kings of the east (literally "rising sun")" (Rev. 16:12) even though on the opposite side in the war and on the opposite side of the globe (nowhere near the Turkish Empire) because unintentionally Japan really did wake up the United States by means of Pearl Harbor so that Catholic Europe could be punished by America.. Also Japan did punish the Roman Catholic Philippines -- a similar "Babylon" to Europe but on a smaller scale. Indonesia and Malaysia were the "Euphrates" that dried up in this case since they are 90% Moslem. Another way of looking at Japan's role is to say that she also punished North American's for our toleration of Roman Catholics just as Russia punished European Catholics. But Japan also got punished for her sins.
What Will Be the Fate of Britain and America?
The part played by the British Empire and the United States in defeating FASCISM and NAZISM (the PAPAL "Babylon"), identifies these nations as ISRAEL just as the ancient defeat of Babylon involved the active participation of the "MEDES" who were partly composed of the lost ten tribes of ISRAEL who had been taken captive to "the cities of the MEDES" (2 Ki. 17:6). Thus Churchill and Roosevelt and others were used by God to fulfill prophecy.
A sobering thought is that in
World War Two both the British (at Singapore) and the Americans (at Pearl
Harbor) suffered serious losses and defeats at the hands of the "kings
of the east" or rising sun. If World War Three is merely a repeat
of World War Two with slight changes (as we think will be the case since
the prophecy hasn't been completely fulfilled yet) then we could expect
North Korea or Communist China to launch missiles at us this time (the
"hail" -- Rev. 11:19; 16:21) causing serious losses or even
