I mailed a submission (to be an illustrator) to Marvel Comics in the late 1990s. They sent me a rejection letter in which they said that some of my figurework was stiff (which was true) and that I should not swipe from actual professional artists (which was not true). At the time, I could draw people's faces (from different angles) at a professional level, but the editor who looked at my drawing samples apparently couldn't believe that an amateur such as myself could draw that well. Anyhow, it's all in the past now; I no longer have a desire to draw comic books for Marvel. Besides, a superb illustrator whose work I admire a lot--Dave McKean--was also rejected by Marvel Comics when he was starting out--and has never done work for them. So in that respect I'm in good company. But I digress.
Something I've wondered about is this: how does Japan figure into Bible prophecy? This island nation is still a major player economically, and its population is significantly larger than that of the United Kingdom. Another interesting question is: is there anything to this theory that says that the Japanese are Israelites? Part of scattered Israel?
As for the first question, Henning Kemner (whose Youtube account is called "TheCountdownBackUp") has a video where he shows evidence that HAARP has been used to cause multiple earthquakes off the eastern shores of Japan: the aim being to cause Japan to slide (on its eastern side) into the Pacific Ocean. This sounds crazy, but it doesn't surprise me that this is something that they would try. Will it work? Only God knows for sure.
Concerning the origin of the Japanese people, it is shrouded in mystery and is quite fascinating. A major part of my research into Japan's prehistorical past involved reading the part in Graham Hancock's book "Underworld" (and have read other parts of this thick book) about the Ice Age inhabitants of Japan. From Mr. Hancock I learned that the Japanese are not descended from the Jomon people, who were living on the Japanese islands as early as 16,000 years ago; rather the modern Japanese are descended from a people called the Yagyu, who entered these islands around 600 BC.
The Yagyu had migrated from the west. They were a warlike people, and they took up the habit of eating rice by encountering the Jomon inhabitants of Japan. From the latter the Yagyu learned to cultivate rice. Now we know that from 732 to 701 BC the Assyrian empire was deporting (in stages) the Northern Kingdom of Israel. We have this peculiar passage from Amos 8:11-14: "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again."
There's another theory that says that the founders of Japan came into the Japanese archipelago from Southeast Asia. I doubt that the Japanese originated in SE Asia--and I'm from that part of the world (I was born in Thailand.). It could be that the Japanese forefathers passed through that region on their way to the islands of Japan.
And maybe I'm trying to grab at something that isn't really there, but I see a strange similarity between the word "samurai" and the name of the capital of the Northern Kingdom, "Samaria." Could it be that the Yagyu originated from the Levant? And that they were originally the inhabitants of Samaria before they were deported? This sounds too fantastic to be true, I know. One thing I've come to realize: the truth is quite strange. If this is true, then how come they don't look like the Caucasian Israelites of Europe and North America? Well the Israelites have pretty much intermingled with the peoples they encountered, in their wanderings far and wide. Thus it's not hard to accept that a group of the Israelites (of the Northern Kingdom) who were deported made their way eastward across Eurasia--all the way into East Asia and coming to the Pacific Ocean. And there they crossed over into the Japanese isles.
From another excellent Christian researcher, Zen Garcia, I learned that the name "Japan" comes from the name of a large island that once sat in the middle of the Pacific in the deep past. It was known as "Pan." And the islands we know as Japan today were once part of this bigger island. Pan was part of the Atlantean empire. "Pan" is the name of a god--portrayed as a faun: who was human from the waist up but who had the legs of a goat. From this god's name we get the word "panic." You can see that this god was not nice. Like most of the gods, Pan can be traced back to Satan.
Below we see Batman standing in the middle of an empty street of Gotham at night. Gotham is an analog for New York City, which is due for judgment soon. The Globalists have been using HAARP to cause earthquakes off the coast of an island called La Palma (one of the Canary Islands). The intent here is to cause a major portion of said island to slide into the Atlantic Ocean, thus giving rise to a tsunami that will smash into New York City (and all along the Atlantic Coast of North America). This tsunami will also hit the Ireland and the UK, with disastrous effects also. And there's nothing that the Dark Knight--if he were real--can do about it. What God has spoken through his holy prophets will come to pass.
Below is a panel from a comic book story called "Final Crisis" by Grant Morrison, J. G. Jones et al. Is Mr. Morrison trying to tell us something? Was he told to write this story about the end of the world by the Powers That Be? He has recently been made a Member of the British Empire.
One last thing. Prince William and Kate were standing on what is known as the "Cosmati Pavement" when they were married last year. This elaborately decorated floor had been covered up for about a hundred years before it was uncovered for this event. A dull-colored carpet had been placed on top of it for all this time. The Cosmati Pavement had remained covered even for Queen Elizabeth's coronation. The queen's successor will be crowned on this floor (commissioned by Henry III in 1268 (thanks to Projectavalon.net, though I'm wary its founder)). It has a five-digit number as part of its design: 19,683. Some say that it refers to the future date of 19,683 AD, when the world will end. I think it has a hidden message. If you add all the digits together--1+9+6+3+3--you get 27. Then you add 2 and 7, which gives you 9. The number 9 is symbolic of completion. (For example the 1970s ended with the year 1979, since 1980 was the beginning of a new decade.) So the Cosmati Pavement was revealed again in 2012 because this year (on 12/21/12) we will see the end of this present age: it comes to a complete end. However, we will be experiencing a very rough transition that will span the next few years. At the end of which this coming madness will be brought to an end by Jesus Christ upon his return to the earth.
Addendum: Barry Whitwell, whom I came across on Youtube, made a significant point about the number "9." He said that Jesus died in the 9th hour--during his crucifixion. Truly, 9 is a number of completion--especially for the cabalist factions in these last days.
