Before I discuss the subject for this post I would like to discuss how the sons of Cain survived Noah's flood. It's quite simple: Noah's flood was a regional flood; it was a super-flood but it was not worldwide: "And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered." (Genesis 7:19) The word "earth" here means land; not all the landmass of the entire earth. For we have in Daniel 4:1 this: "Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth." Clearly Nebuchadnezzar did not rule over the entire planet; "all the earth" in that verse must mean all the land of his dominion--a hyperbolic way of speaking of the greatness of the 2nd Babylonian empire (the 1st one being under Nimrod, circa 4000 BC).
Now the sons of Cain were not living in the area that the people--among whom Noah dwelt--occupied. (I like to imagine Noah building the Ark in some giant hangar within the city he lived in, thereby concealing his special project from any onlookers.) The date of this flood may have been around 5100 BC. (It is believed that planet Nibiru came into our solar system around 1500 BC, which was the time of the Exodus of Israel from Egypt. Nibiru's orbit brings it into our vicinity every 3,600 years, so you just do the math.)
So, onto the subject of this post: Israel and how she relates to the soon-coming Antichrist. We are seeing socio-economic turmoil ramping up in the West--among the nations of Scattered Israel. Much of Europe, the US, Britain and the British Commonwealth of nations are Israel today--including the Sephardic Jews (the true descendants of the remnant of Judah that was not taken captive by the Assyrians) in the State of Israel and other parts of the world. It is the money-worshiping, justice-despising, blind and mad Western nations that are the whore of Babylon. And the US--being the place for the greatest regathering of Israel (alluded to in Revelation 12 as the woman fleeing into the wilderness--is the heart of the whore today.
And the Federal Reserve is the most visible--to those who have eyes to see it--aspect of that heart of the whore: the American people being the life blood that keeps her going. The nations of the world have partaken of the whore's benefits. Witness what Ezekiel 16 says: "30How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman; 31In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; 32But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband! 33They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom. 34And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary." The Federal Reserve has given "gifts" to the US politicians. On a more macro level the Israelite nations have--by way of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank--given "gifts" to the other nations. Then it is demanded that the citizens of these nations slave away to pay back the loans. Not that Americans and Britons aren't having to slave away to pay back the money borrowed from the private banks (owned by the Edomites: Cainites).
Another way of seeing the dynamics of the whore of Babylon is how Americans (who are of Israelite extractrion and including strangers--such as myself--who've joined themselves to Israel: "For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob." (Isaiah 14:1)) have made themselves beholden to money--thereby the Federal Reserve Notes (notes of debt) have become filthy lucre. Money has taken the place only the most High should have, in the US and in the world; and so judgment must come--by way of the ten kings that serve the beast.
As for the Antichrist, this is the world he will inherit (for a short time), which has been set up for him (over millenia) by the sons of Cain (the children of Esau). Satan has, through commerce, corrupted the world before: "By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned..." (Ezekiel 28:16) And further on in verse 18 it says, "Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick..." Money is the medium by which commerce is carried out. It's gotten to the point where we have lost touch with what money is supposed to be: since it is the easiest and most obvious standard by which to measure wealth, we have (over time) come to equate money with wealth. Which led to us seeing money as the source of our sustenance--thus taking the place of the true God. We have committed iniquity.
We know that the Antichrist is supposed to be the counterfeit Jesus Christ. Jesus, when he was here on earth--the Word becoming flesh (John 1)--God coming down to dwell among men, became sin for us; so that we would not have to be punished for our sin (rejecting the truth, which leads to other lesser sins). When Israel was in the wilderness Moses was told by God to do something strange: "And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." (Numbers 21:9) Why would God choose to have people--who had been bitten by poisonous snakes--healed through them looking on brass serpent?: serpents being symbolic of evil, of wickedness, of sin. That brass serpent was foreshadowing what Jesus would do later when he was raised on a stake: he took onto himself the sins of the world. This dynamic interrelationship (reciprocal relation) goes all the way back to Genesis 3:15, where God said he would "put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed." The seed of the serpent versus the Messiah (the woman's seed). And if we accept that the seraphim are serpentine in nature, we have in Isaiah 6:6-7 another serpent/sin dynamic: "Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged." (Not all of the seraphim are evil.) The Antichrist is--from what I can see in scripture--the physical copy of Jesus (as I've touched on in my series about Barack Obama and the Antichrist). This being--in their eyes--the supreme achievement of the sons of the serpent.
