It was within the first seconds of a phone conversation nine months after the publication of Prophecy Code when I heard the words no author ever wants to hear: âYou made a mistake in your book,â followed by, âyou must fix this error immediately.â This mistake, I was soon told, consisted of a geographical error in chapter 4 where I stated that Theodore Herzl founded the Jewish State in Basle, France.
The person who informed me of this mistake just so happened to be a citizen from Switzerland, the country where the Jewish State was actually founded in 1897. Her name is Monica, a Swiss version of the Prophetess Anna from Luke 2:36. Monica, who ironically now lives in the great state of Minnesota and less than an hour from where I live, is a prayer warrior who prays night and day for the salvation and unification of Israel at her local parish.
To say that the phone conversation didnât immediately get me excited about the whole process of fixing this error is an understatement, given that it takes a decent amount of time and money to re-fabricate the printerâs disc. Not to mention, I was still burnt out nine months after the first writing. Still, God has a way of moving things forward when he wants you to do something, so it came as no surprise when I found myself with Monica visiting both a synagogue and a mosque six weeks after our initial phone conversation.
I hadnât planned on visiting the mosque that warm, sunny Saturday afternoon, not to mention a synagogue. If I had, I would not have dropped by Monicaâs house wearing just jeans and T-shirt. Still, as fate would have it, I would soon be dressed up wearing her sonâs dress shirt, slacks, and a tie to boot.
Within an hour, Monica, her friends Ann and Jim, and myself were attending a Yom Kippur service, at Temple Israel. And several hours later we were traveling in one of three busses full of Jewish worshipers to the mosque to âpromote peace through the breaking of bread,â to end the month-long fasting of Ramadan.
After entering the mosque, we began walking down a semi-long hallway shaking hands with a welcoming committee of Muslim men and women. As we worked our way toward the location of the dates and bread, I shook the hand of a man who looked familiar to me. Seconds later, I heard one man yell to another: âHey, Congressman Ellison.â At that moment, I recognized that âfamiliarâ man as U.S. congressman Keith Ellison, the first U.S. Muslim congressman in our countryâs short history.
After munching on some tasty dates, we four Christians and about one hundred Jews were herded under a large golden dome at the center of the mosque. The women were told to sit at the back of the mosque, while the men were seated Indian-style underneath the dome.
Before long, the Arabic prayers began flowing. At first, they started small. But soon they grew louder and louder until the reverb began encircling us. It was at that moment when I began to pray for God to bind the spirit of Antichrist, and to open their eyes to the truth. It was around this time when I heard the jaw-dropping words of âPalestineâ and âAllahâ mentioned in the same sentence followed by the chants of âAllah Akbarâ (God is great).
Shortly thereafter, we were asked to leave the sanctuary and travel down a long staircase to the basement of the mosque to eat a spaghetti dinner. Interestingly, as we ate, Rabbi Zimmerman from the local synagogue Temple Israel presided over this so-called âBreaking the Fast ceremony.â This then led to several speeches promoting religious tolerance, including one promoting world peace from U.S. congressman Keith Ellison.
When it was all over, we walked back to the top of the staircase, and all of a sudden I felt a nudge. Turning around I saw Monica pointing to a large print directly in front of the two big glass doors leading into to the mosqueâs inner sanctuary. The print read:
The Mosque of Allah shall be visitedâ¦ by such as believe in Allah and the Last Daysâ¦. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance (Qurâan 9:18).
Monica added, âJeff, look at the chapter and verse. Isnât that your license plate number, 918?â
To be honest, I donât know what surprised me more, Monica knowing my license plate number or my plate number being at the bottom of that eye-popping verse. Nevertheless, later on that night while I pondered the daysâ events, I was thinking that there I was, standing in a Mosque I hadnât planned on visiting, wearing clothes that werenât mine, with a woman I hardly knew. A woman who not only knew my license plate number, but was able to connect my plate number to a verse from the Qurâan that validates the Prophecy Code theme. And if that wasnât enough, I also unknowingly shook the hand of an elected official who just so happens to be the first Muslim congressman. My conclusion was that God must have orchestrated the daysâ events that ironically occurred on the holiest day of Judaism, Yom Kippur.
Thanks in a large part to Monica, Prophecy Code II delivers a more detailed and unique look at how Islamic and biblical eschatology deceitfully overlap. But more importantly, it builds on the revelation that made Prophecy Code what it is today, the revelation that Luciferâs name is Allah!
My hope is that this ominous revelation will motivate the average layperson to take the Last Days more seriously. This is not the time for wishful thinking. This is the time for spiritual warfare. God has given each of us the authority as prophets, priests, and kings to be witnesses to a dying world by showing them his divine light. For it says,
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hiddenâ¦. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:14â16). So get off your couches and get involved. âLive as though Christ died yesterday, rose from the grave today, and is coming back tomorrowâ (Theodore Epp).
It was on a muggy evening in August of 1979 when I was awakened prophetically to the last days. I recall sitting with my family in a pavilion on the grounds of an old zoo, watching this reel-to-reel movie about the apocalypse. Much of the movie focused on the importance of Israel in relation to the Second Coming of Messiah. Needless to say, I was left with the impression that Jesus Christ would return in my lifetime.
Fast-forward to the present: I have been studying Bible prophecy for over seventeen years, including reading just about every book on the subject one could read. I have listened to numerous lectures and viewpoints and have spent many hours processing all this data. In addition, Iâve spent nearly a year attending an Orthodox Synagogue learning about Judaism and picking the brains of educated Jews and Rabbis prior to this revision, which in turn has helped authenticate the theories inside this book.
All of this has led to the strengthening of my personal convictions on the subject of Bible prophecy. It is because of these convictions and the hard-core evidences that support them that I am writing this book.
The Protestant community has been told that in the last daysâright before the return of Messiahâthe Roman Empire would be revived, and an apostatized Catholic Church with a Pope who is the Antichrist will influence it. The evidence found in this book will definitely discredit that misguided viewpoint by giving you an alternative view. This will be accomplished using translations from ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words merging them with the plain-text passages of the Bible, including Islamic eschatological literature, to give a deeper and a more accurate understanding of the last days.
You will be amazed but not surprised at who the worldâs final superpower will be and at the name of the one who will run it. Yes, I will divulge the hidden name of the Antichrist. However, instead of the name of a man, it will be the name of a deity.
Furthermore, I will show you how the millennium (the year 2000) was miscalculated from the wrong year. You will be methodically guided to the time when the real millennium begins; thereafter, you will be given a tour into the chilling but misunderstood years of the seven âseals,â the years directly preceding the return of Christ, and the true millennium.
So, hang on as we begin unlocking the mysteries of the past, because it is by the past that we will understand the future...
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. (Isa. 46:10)
The first chapter contains a fair amount of Hebrew and Greek words and translations, including Aramaic words and terms. This had to be done to set up my theory regarding Luciferâs hidden name.
Luciferâs Hidden Name
(excerpt from Chapter 1)
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Gen. 1:1)
Now the earth was formless, and void, darkness was over the surface of the deep.
There are two primary theories concerning how the earth came to be in a formless, empty, dark, and fluid condition. The first is called the gap theory. The second is called the chaos theory. The simplest way to explain the chaos theory is that when God created the Earth in Genesis 1:1, it was basically step 1 in the seven steps or days of his creation program. In other words, God did not intend to leave the earth in a formless, empty, dark, and fluid condition.
The gap theory, on the other hand, says that something happened to the earth between Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 to make it âformless and void.â This theory is based on the Hebrew translation of three words from Genesis 1:2âwas, formless, and void. The word for was comes from the verb hayah, and it holds the key meaning of âI amâ or âYahâ in the name of Yahweh. In fact, when God redeemed Israel from Egyptian bondage, he used this verb as his name when he said to Moses in Exodus 3:14, âsay to the Israelites: âI AM (hayah) has sent me to you.â He also used it to explain Israelâs future regathering and salvation in the Old Testament book that means salvation, the book of Hosea.
âAfter two days (or 2000 years) he will revive (hayah) us; on the third day (at the beginning of 3000 years) he will restore us, that we may live (hayah) in his presence.â (Hos. 6:2)
The Talmud (ancient rabbinical writings) teaches that all of creation is embodied within the three letters that constitute this word, the letters Hei Yud Hei. With the letter Hei God created this world, and with the letter Yud, the world to come. In other words, the verb hayah connotes the meaning of life and salvation. It is the catalyst of Godâs redemptive and creative works. A prime example of this can be found in the Messianic Psalm 118:21 and the Hebrew translation of âsalvation.â
I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become (hayah) my salvation. The stone the builders (Israel) rejected has become (hayah) the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. (Ps. 118:21, 22)
The Hebrew translation for salvation is Yâshua. In fact, Yâshua (Jesus) used verse 22Â¾found in Matthew 21:42, to explain why the Jewish leaders had rejected him. Yet, notice how God strategically placed the verb hayah or âI AMâ right in front of the two words that identify Yâshua as Moshiach. Let us now go the Gospel of John.
Jesus replied, âIf I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies meâ¦. Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.â âYou are not yet fifty years old,â the Jews said to him, âand you have seen Abraham!â âI tell you the truth,â Jesus answered, âbefore Abraham was born, I AM!â (John. 8:54-58)
This critical piece of evidence suggests that Yâshua is not only Israelâs Moshiach, but He is also the Great âI AMâ from Exodus 3:14. Yet, when we place the verb hayah or âI AMâ with the words formless and void, or tohu, bohu from Genesis 2 the ancient past now becomes our future.
The Hebrew words tohu, bohu carry the translation of âa desolate, worthless thing.â Every occurrence of these words in the Scriptures is associated with Godâs judgment. It implies that God intervened and that some catastrophe took place on planet Earth as a result of His displeasure.
In the book of the prophet Jeremiah, we have a perfect example of the wordsâ hayah and tohu, bohu. At first glance, one might think that the text containing these words is the same as in Genesis 1:2. However, when we closely examine it, we discover that the prophet isnât specifically referring to that text. In effect, itâs a prolongation of what occurred there or Godâs future judgment against mankind.
I beheld the earth, and lo it was without form, and void; and the heavens, they had no light. I beheld the mountains and lo they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and lo there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld and lo the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord and His fierce anger. (Jer. 4:23â27 KJV)
In this prophecy, we have Godâs displeasure or fierce anger as the reason for the earth becoming âformless, and void.â
Therefore, Genesis 1:1, 2 should be interpreted to read: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth became a desolate, worthless thing because of Godâs judgment. Leaving us with the all-important question of why God would use a verb that means âI AMâ as a linking verb to destruction?
I believe the answer lies in the root translation of this verb. The Hebrew Septuagint (pre-Christian Greek version of the Jewish Scriptures called the Tanakh) has the key meaning of hayah as ego eimi ho on; translated it means âI myself am egoâ or âI am He.â In addition, the Strongâs translators from The New Strongâs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible say that within this verb lies the self-designation of God, as âI will be God or I am Godâclearly a suggestive overtone that the judgments of God in Genesis 2 and Jeremiah 4 are perhaps linked by this so-called self-designation. In fact, this can be reinforced by the following verse:
âThou (Lucifer) wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created till iniquity was (hayah) found in theeâ¦. Thine heart was (hayah) lifted up, because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness. (Ezek. 28:15â17 KJV)
Here we have Luciferâs heart at one point in time being âperfectâ; yet notice the verse âThine heart was lifted up.â Now look at the word was; again itâs hayah (or âI myself am egoâ), the verb from Genesis 2 and Jeremiah 4 that in my opinion caused the world to become âformless and void.â
Early one morning, after hours of mulling this concept of a self-designation over and over in my mind, I decided to turn to the Old Testament book of Isaiah and a passage about Lucifer and the original sin (his heartfelt intent of dethroning God). While I was scrutinizing the text, I noticed that one word in particular stood out above the rest. Curious, I ran the word through my Strongâs Concordance, and what I found almost took my breath away. At first glance, this word seemed to unmask the identity of the worldâs last dictator known by many as the Antichrist.

The Great Image Where is Rome?
(excerpt from Chapter 2)
This vision as a whole simply confirms what Iâve been saying all along: itâs as if the Roman Empire is but a by-product or an offshoot of the Greek Empire. Furthermore, Daniel 2:39, which describes the âbelly and thighs of bronze,â also validates this theory of a Greco-Roman earth, because it says, âThe kingdom of bronze [or he-goat] shall rule the whole earth.â So, if both the he-goat and the bronze are Greece, and the legs of iron donât symbolize Rome, who do they symbolize?

The Feet and Toes of Iron and Clay
(Excerpt from chapter 3)
Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided (Peleg) kingdom; yet, it will have some of the strength of the iron in it, even as you saw the iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain âunited,â any more than the iron mixes with clay. In the time of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed.â (Dan. 2:41â44)
As far as officially identifying the clay, the book of Job connects clay to error and error to the fall the angels, when he says,
If Godâ¦ charges his angels with error, how much more those who live in houses of clay, whose foundation are in the dust. (Job 4:18, 19)
When God created man from the clay, it was in response to Luciferâs demonic plot of ascending in order to âbring Christ down.â Therefore, itâs reasonable to assume that the clay found mixing with the iron of socialism represents the antichrist religion that brings Christ down. Islam has done this three times, once by inserting Ishmael into Isaacâs place as the promised child. Again by taking Christ off the cross before he died; and lastly by stating that the Prophet Muhammadâs words supersede those of Christ and the Bible. In other words, Islam has brought Christ down by supplanting Godâs truth (Bible) with that of a lie (Qurâan), thus making Islam the clay of âthe feet and toes of iron and clay.â
As for the verb mixed, it holds a critical piece of evidence that more than supports the theory that Islam is the clay and therefore Luciferâs agent that he will use to physically take control of the world. Strangely, the translations of the verb mixed had been hidden for thousands of years, cloaked by unfulfilled prophecy, and even the Hebrew and Aramaic languages.

Israel's Four Stage Re-establishment
(Excerpt from chapter 4)
So, with this in mind, I decided to grab my calculator and start punching some numbers. And what I discovered was nothing short of astonishing: Within this amazing number 2,520, I found the four-stage reestablishment of the nation of Israel. This four-stage progression is mentioned in the twenty-sixth chapter of Leviticus (the âcurseâ of Alah chapter) when Mosses lays down four distinct punishments of seven âtimes.â

The Real Millennium
(Excerpt from chapter 4)
Iâm sure many of you end-time enthusiasts are perhaps as shocked as I was. How is it possible for modern educated people to miss the year of Christâs return by such a wide margin? Think about it: Christians all over the world were acting as if Christ would drop out of the sky the moment the millennium clock struck twelve. What happened? Surprisingly, the answer is simple. The reason the year 2000 turned out to be such a prophetic dud is that the year from which it was originally calculated was wrong; the two-thousand-year time clock of Christâs return was set at the wrong time. Instead of calculating it from the crucifixion of Christ or the third benchmark, which should have been the case, as spoken in Daniel 9:26, Pope Gregory and the Catholic Church calculated it from the birth of Christ. This resulted in our Gregorian time clock basically being set...

And what about Daniel 8?
(Excerpt from chapter 4)
Now if I were a gambling manâwhich I am notâbut if I were, I would definitely wager a guess that many of you are thinking that I am just another date setter who just placed himself on a long list of date setters. Youâre probably right; like those other theories, the odds are against this one. However, let us not forget what Thomas Edison said when questioned about his failing more than two thousand times to create the lightbulb. Edison responded, âI have not failed two thousand times. I have successfully discovered two thousand ways not to make a lightbulb.â

The Number of His Name
(Excerpt from chapter 5)
Yet, we canât talk about the so-called Mark of the Beast without looking at the ânumber of his name,â or the number 666. This daunting digit has intrigued men for millennia; people have been trying to unlock the mystery surrounding the words âfor it is a manâs number. His number is 666.â
Theyâve used various numerology systems, such as the Greek, Roman, and Hebrew alphabets, in an attempt to identify the Antichrist. In fact, the list is lengthy, and it includes emperors, popes, and even presidents whose names have the gematria of 666.
John the Revelator says that the way to decipher the ânumber of the beastâ is to âcountâ his number and then connect it to the number of a man. E. W. Bullinger adds that the triple 6 will be a âtest and a proof by which anti-Christ may be revealed.â
If thatâs the case, then my theory connecting Allah to Antichrist rests on the fact that Allahâs name carries the summation of 666 in some form or another, right?
Order Prophecy Code II and find out if Allah's name carries the summation of 666.
The Treaty of Hudaibiya
(Excerpt from chapter 5)
It is imperative before we continue that you understand the Muslim mindset when it comes to so-called peace treaties. The Muslims believe the only treaty that can be made with unbelievers is one that must be broken. This is based on the treaty of Muhammad called Hudaibiya.
To Muslims Hudaibiya is a well-understood code-word which briefly means âKiss the hand of your enemy until you can cut it off.â Indeed, Muhammad laid the foundation for Islam to build a history of making peace with an enemy in order to attack at a later, more opportune time.
In 628, Muhammad made a âpeace treatyâ with the Quraish tribe in Mecca in order for Muslims to worship at the Kaaba (an Arab shrine). Two years later, when he had gained more followers and was considerably stronger, he abrogated the treaty and attacked the Quraish people, slaughtering every male among them. This truce became a model and a precedent in Islamic law for all agreements with infidels: never permanent, never lasting more than ten years. In other words, Islam is not permitted to stop its war against non-Muslims for more than this time period.

The Final Siege
(Excerpt from chapter 5)
When the lamb opened the fourth sealâ¦I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, and plague, and the beasts [evil men] of the earth.(Rev. 6:7, 8)
I will besiege Ariel [Jerusalem]â¦. I will encamp against you all around; I will encircle you with towers and set up my siege works against you.(Isa. 29:23)
The Jews and the body of Christ make up this âfourth of the earth.â This is the consummation of all thingsâthe end to justify the means.
This implosion of our dimensional divide will unleash the war that began eons ago in the third heaven, causing the fall of angels. The by-product of that war was the creation of man and a time period called the âgap,â an age when real time seems to have stopped for the sole purpose of birthing the spiritually deadâthose under the first Adam.
This âgapâ closely resembles a smaller time period, also called the âgapââa time when people arenât just born once (spiritually dead) but twice (born again). This spiritual regeneration would restore a person back to the beginning, or back to life, by virtue of the second Adam, named Yâshua.
In other words, one gap and people (all mankind) were the result of Luciferâs sin of ascension in Genesis 1:1, while the other gap and people called Christians is the result of self-sacrifice, expressed in the ascension of Yâshua. (Acts 1:9)
The end result is two distinct and disparate seed-lines from two gaps running parallel to each other, thus sending both of these seed-lines and their timelines on a collision course at the high-tech version of the tree of good and evil.

The Beheadings of Revelations
(Excerpt from chapter 6)
The teachings of Islam are clear: behead the âinfidelsâ as a means of promoting terror. According to Ibn Ishaq, one of Mohammedâs biographers, âthe founder of Islam himself approved of the beheadings of 700 Jews in Medina, whose bodies were stacked in trenches.â The Bible says that in the days directly preceding the return of Christ, Christians will be executed in mass numbers. I believe the evidence points to these beheadings occurring primarily because of insubordination to Islamic lawâthe law requiring individuals to pay homage to Alah and his image or to take his âmarkâ of submission. Obviously, this will promote fear on an apocalyptic level.
