Is This the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius?
By Richard Allen – October 23, 2023
Since the Book was first written in the First Century A.D., the Book of Revelation has fascinated both Christians and Non-Christians with its End Times narrative and colorful symbology. And while most of unbelieving mankind does not believe that Revelation is inspired, they are still drawn to its terms, phrases and visions. Such phrases as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” or the number “666” are routinely used in Sci-Fi and Horror films. And while I have done some serious study for the past 49 years, I make no pretense of having it all figured out, or even partly figured out. Even so, there are several themes in the Book of Revelation that resonate with me, many that have struck a chord with thinkers over the past two millennia. One theme that strikes a chord with me is the compulsion men have to build world empires. It clearly started after the Flood of Noah with a leader named Nimrod. Looking at the context of Nimrod’s rule and his involvement in “building a tower that could reach the heavens,” I have often wondered what impact the Flood had on Nimrod and people in Babylon wanting to build a “tower that high?” Were they saying to God: “Go ahead and flood the world again. Now we have built a refuge high enough to protect us from another deluge.”
Thinking about world empires, Revelation Chapter 13 gives a vision that has drawn much prophetic attention over the years. It’s the vision of the “Beast rising from the Sea” in Revelation 13:1-4. Many people have noticed this Beast’s similarity to a vision that the Prophet Daniel had six hundred years before. Here are the two passages:
"And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear's, and its mouth was like a lion's mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” (Revelation 13:1-4)
“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things” (Daniel 7:7-8).
What makes these passages fascinating is that Daniel had seen a succession of Three Beasts (empires) prior to the Fourth Beast (empire) that he describes in the above passages. And in the interpretation that Daniel is given by an Angelic being (Daniel 7:15-27), he is told that these Beasts represent World Kingdoms that shall arise, conquer and then end. Some believe the Beast that Revelation predicts is a future World Empire like the Roman Empire, with far reaching dominion. Others have noted that the Roman Empire of the past is the one which put the Lord Jesus to death, and has already had its day. My goal for this week’s Blog is not to enter the fray with my interpretation, but rather to notice that since the time Daniel and John gave us the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation, fallen men are still aspiring to hold sway over all mankind in a world-wide kingdom. Since the days of Nimrod (Genesis 10:8-10), many tyrants and leaders have arisen with grand desires of “world-wide conquest.” Even in our Modern age, we’ve faced Hitler, Stalin and Mao – all aspiring to have “One World Dominion!”
The past 75 years since World War II have witnessed an American century. Along with our arch rival, the Soviet Union, both Superpowers have vied for political and military world-dominance in every region of the globe. Since the “fall of the Berlin Wall” in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, another economic superpower has emerged seeking world dominion, China. China now uses its industrial and economic power to build a new network of nations allied with their supremacy, to supplant both the United States and Russia as the sole great superpower. But even with China, Russia and the United States exerting military and economic power across the globe, there is an even greater superpower that has silently achieved a real dominancethat rivals all three: International Banking! I don’t have the space to chronicle a history of the expansion and control wielded by international bankers over the past 100 years. Let it suffice to say that it is substantial and far reaching. It should concern us that the latest “Beast” to arise out of the Sea of Gentile rulers are the financial entities that make up Klaus Schwab’s WEF, World Economic Forum! While Russia, China and the United States scramble to keep their economies afloat with rapidly changing oil prices (the life blood of modern kingdoms), these bankers sit above the fray, plotting a “Great Reset” to bring the whole world under their “New World Order!” If we use that one filter, it may seem that what’s happening is disjointed, but it does make sense!
So it might be asked: “What exactly is their strategy?” While I make no claim to be prophetic, I do think it’s clear from all that has been happening over the past 30 years – since they have had a succession of world leaders who have done their bidding – their main goal is to “destabilize.” I don’t throw this out flippantly. I think it’s clear that the “destabilization” of world governments, both from the East and West, is their means to an end. But you might ask, “What then is their Endgame?” Again, not claiming clairvoyance, I believe it’s clear that they want to disrupt and destabilize all human governments with their “crisis of the month,” keeping most of the world’s attention diverted to wars and phony threats like “manmade climate change” – all to offer their ultimate fix: “The New World Order!” Be aware, the marketing for the New World Order will put all the Russia collusion hype and Trump’s supposed overthrow of the government to shame. Like the hyped election of Barak Hussein Obama, they’ll claim that “no one will ever want for anything: Food, Safety, Shelter, Healthcare, Transportation, Order and above all Harmony with the Environment.“
Again, I’m not speculating, rather I’m repeating the hype they’re making about the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Technology to create a Garden of Eden on earth! This shouldn’t surprise us. Since our first parents Adam and Eve were tempted with “the knowledge of good and evil because it would make them like god,” it’s been the long-wished-for desire of all mankind to bring in some form of Utopia. In this case man has finally put the “best and the brightest” of all our species in control. The Elites, using their self-inflated intelligence and wisdom, will ultimately distribute all resources fairly, (or as they determine). And in the process, they’ll create “heaven on earth,” finally putting everything right – or as right as fallen men can devise. And anyone who doesn’t “get with the program,” will be humanely euthanized! I wish I were making this up, but I’m not. And I’m not quoting Biblical prophecy, but rather repeating their words. These Elites have already determined what the New World Order will be, so they plot and plan life for all the rest of mankind.
I did listen to a lengthy YouTube video entitled: “The Great Awakening.” It was recently recorded (in 2023), and while I don’t agree with everything, it’s hard not to agree with much of their assessment of the “New World Order.” One young Banker, who supports the Elites, making the pilgrimage to Davos, Switzerland each year for the WEF – honestly talked about himself and a handful of other Elites who were directing the next wave of Human Evolution which he called: “Intelligent Design.” My ears were on full alert as he spoke of “Intelligent Design,” but I soon discovered that it wasn’t the science of origins that he spoke of. Intelligent Design, as most believers and thinking people understand, is the study, or more appropriately the recognition, that God has left His “divine DNA” on everything He has made. Even the Biologic DNA and RNA (genetic information) that man has recently discovered, point to complexity, purpose and an intelligent design for all life. Rather, for the Elites, Intelligent Design is the plotting and planning done by their cohorts of Politicians, Bankers, pseudo-Scientists, Oligarchs, Activists and Famous Performers – all to promote Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Eugenics to steer earth’s human population to a frightening end. Sadly, like several fallen empires before them, they will use “mass execution to cull the herd of humanity.” No doubt, they’ll say they need absolute control over life and death in order to bring the human species into the right environmental balance. What is most disturbing is, that these Elites actually believe they can direct all life on the planet – and create another Master Race.
I can almost hear Marilyn McCoo from “The 5th Dimension” singing:
“When the moon is in the Seventh House. And Jupiter aligns with Mars. Then peace will guide the planets. And love will steer the stars. This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius, Age of Aquarius. Harmony and understanding. Sympathy and trust abounding. No more falsehoods or derisions. Golden living dreams of visions. Mystic crystal revelation. And the mind's true liberation, Aquarius.”
One thing the modern “Liberal-Progressive-Marxist-Movement” has always envisioned, is a grand new age wherein Man will solve all his problems and control all wrongdoing and evil, and bringing justice, harmony and eternal peace. And through his intelligence, power and might we will: Eradicate Disease and Poverty, eliminate War and Hunger and even conquer Death! Truth be told, at least 130 Million People have been killed in the past century by these same Elites, trying to create Paradise on earth. And just like all Empires before them, “The New World Order,” will try and fail. The only thing they will succeed in, ismurdering and subjugating billions of men and women to pursue their dream of a “man-made” paradise.
The good news for those of us who follow Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Son of Man – Jesus has already accomplished the peace that they can only wish for. Right after the vision of the 4 Beasts, Daniel writes:
“As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a Son of Man, and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed” (Daniel 7:11-14).
Soli Deo Gloria!
