                               ***THE TRUTH***

                                (By J. Adams)

                                October, 1994

                        "And you shall know the truth,

                       and the truth will set you free."

                              (John; Ch.8, v.32)

     The global war described in my papers  is  a  painful  upset  of  man's

 expectations  stemming  from  a  catastrophic error in dominant beliefs and

 behavior.  It involves the total collapse of man's  self-confidence,  i.e.,

 his  ego,  as  the  world  realizes  the  reigning  "secular"  worldview is

 irrational and false- a dangerous popular delusion.

                                 -The Truth-

     While the apocalyptic war I'm anticipating embodies a  total  upset  of

 dominant  secular beliefs and expectations,  it involves the fulfillment of

 religious beliefs and expectations-  i.e.,  the  fulfillment  of  religious

 prophecy.  In  this  sense,  the secular worldview is being falsified while

 the truth,  realism,  and rationality of religion is  established.  So  you

 understand  exactly  how  this  is  the case,  a brief overview of biblical

 prophecy is in order.

     In discussing my views concerning a future surprise world war involving

 a nuclear holocaust triggered by  conflict  in  the  Middle  East,  I  have

 noticed  that  many people respond by saying I'm predicting the "end of the

 world".  I then point out that I did not mention  biblical  prophecy.  Yet,

 most people are quick to draw parallels between Christian predictions of an

 Apocalypse and world war three (of course,  Jewish,  Moslem, and most other

 world religions have their own prophetic versions of the Apocalypse).  This

 is important because I personally do believe that  the  global  conflict  I

 expect is,  indeed,  that which is predicted in the Bible.  In fact,  while

 trying to determine what could cause the epic crash that now appears to  be

 imminent,  I,  along with friends,  went through what can only be logically

 classified as a private revelation that clued me into just how "The  Crash"

 would most likely occur.

     Specifically,  the revelation I went through had to do with the seventh

 seal  prophecy  from  the  eighth  chapter of the Book of Revelation.  This

 prophecy is the key to the revelation of "The Truth" in the context of  the

 Apocalypse  (the  word apocalypse literally means "revelation").  After the

 seventh and final seal is broken in the Book of Revelation,  the Apocalypse

 is  unleashed  and  "The Truth" is revealed.  Thus,  the meaning behind the

 seventh seal prophecy is of the utmost prophetic importance...

          When the Lamb opened the seventh seal,  (1) there was silence

       in heaven for about half an hour.  Then I saw the  seven  angels

       who  stand  before  God,  and seven trumpets were given to them.

       And another angel came and stood at  the  alter  with  a  golden

       censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers

       of  all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne;  and

       the smoke of the incense rose with the  prayers  of  the  saints

       from  the hand of the angel before God.  Then the angel took the

       censer and filled it with fire from the altar and  threw  it  on

       the  earth;  and  (2) there were peals of thunder,  loud noises,

       flashes of lightening, and an earthquake.

          Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets made ready to

       blow them.

          The first angel blew his trumpet, and (3) there followed hail

       and fire, mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third

       of the earth was burnt up,  and a third of the trees were  burnt

       up, and all green grass was burnt up.

          The  second angel blew his trumpet,  and (4) something like a

       great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea;  and

       a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures

       in the sea died, and a third of the ships destroyed.

          The third angel blew his trumpet,  and (5) a great star  fell

       from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the

       rivers  and  on the fountains of water.  The name of the star is

       Wormwood.  A third of the waters became wormwood,  and many  men

       died of the water, because it was made bitter.

          The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and (6) a third of the sun

       was struck,  and a third of the moon,  and a third of the stars,

       so that a third of their light was darkened;  a third of the day

       was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.

          Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice,

       as it flew in midheaven,  "Woe,  woe,  woe to those who dwell on

       the earth,  at the blasts of the other trumpets which the  three

       angels are about to blow!"

     I  have  long  believed  that  this prophecy is a depiction of a future

 nuclear war.  Even though it was written some 2000 years ago, it accurately

 describes each major phase of a global nuclear holocaust:

 1.  The half hour of "silence in heaven" during which ICBM's would traverse

    their orbits before striking targets after being launched.

 2.  The thunderous reports,  bright flashes, and earthquake associated with

    nuclear detonations.

 3.  The nuclear blasts of "hail and fire,  mixed with  blood"  followed  by

    raging fires that would consume much of the earth.

 4.  The nuclear explosions, "like a great mountain, burning with fire", all

    over the world's seas as ports, ships, and submarines are attacked.

 5.  The lethal contamination  of  water  supplies  by  radioactive  fallout

    ("Wormwood") for weeks after a nuclear war.

 6.  The  blanketing of the sky by vast dust clouds after a nuclear war such

    that sunlight,  moonlight,  and starlight is obscured thereby causing  a

    "nuclear winter".

     Over the years my conviction has grown that this  prophecy  predicts  a

 future nuclear war.  First off,  the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine

 helped reveal the truth behind the prophecy.  This is because,  as I  later

 found out, the Ukrainian word for the bitter herb "wormwood", which poisons

 water in the seventh seal prophecy, is "Chernobyl" (easily referenced- see,

 for instance: 'Chernobyl' (1987), by Andrey Illesh).

     If this were not enough, in February of 1991, in the middle of the Gulf

 War,  a couple of friends and I had some rather remarkable experiences that

 I believe confirmed the meaning of the prophecy as well  as  indicated  its

 imminent fulfillment.  First off,  on February 6th,  I saw a special report

 of a chemical SCUD attack on Israel that  did  not  exist  (believe  me,  I

 checked  it  out  fully;  the report was never aired).  Then,  about a week

 later,  I was with a friend of mine  who  had  just  become  interested  in

 Nostradamus  and  prophecies  that  might  be  connected with the Gulf War.

 After showing him some books I had on Nostradamus,  I began reading him the

 seventh seal prophecy above.  Just as I began reading it,  we heard an air-

 raid siren followed by the bellowed percussion of a nuclear explosion.  The

 authenticity of the experience led me to rush with  my  friend  to  a  deep

 basement  in  a  nearby  building.  From  there  I contacted the local fire

 department to see if any sirens had been sounded; however, none had.  After

 returning to our original location,  my friend and I  began  checking  with

 others  to  see  if  anyone  else  had  heard  anything.  No  one else had.

 However, another friend of mine, who is very trustworthy,  said that he had

 heard  no  air-raid  siren  that  evening- he had heard one that afternoon.

 When I asked him whether or not  it  could  have  been  a  fire  alarm,  he

 responded: "No, it was distinctly an air-raid siren off in the distance".

     Needless  to  say,  these  extraordinary experiences led me to conclude

 that the conflict in the Persian Gulf might somehow be linked to  a  future

 global  nuclear war- an event that would fit the ultimate crash I have been

 anticipating.  Thus,  I began to critically reexamine the events  that  had

 been  taking place in the Gulf,  and I quickly realized there was something

 seriously amiss.  In  fact,  all  the  inconsistencies  and  contradictions

 pointed  to one logical explanation:  the Soviets and Iraq were engaging in

 large-scale  strategic  deception  (see  my  paper,   "The   Persian   Gulf

 Deception").  The  reason  they  would  be  doing  this was clarified after

 examining the  rather  frightening  conclusion  of  our  national  security

 analysts during the late-1970s and early-1980's: the Soviets were preparing

 to  fight and win a nuclear war (see:  Richard Pipes' "Why the Soviet Union

 Thinks it could Fight and Win a Nuclear War" in 'Commentary' (July,  1977),

 Dr.  William  Van  Cleave's  "Soviet  Strategic  Nuclear  Forces and Goals:

 Deception and Surprise" in 'Mesmerized By The Bear' (1987),  and/or 'Soviet

 Strategy for Nuclear War' (1979),  authored by Joseph Douglas).  Of course,

 with remarkable fear-induced irrationality,  Western society has completely

 ignored  the  possibility that Gorbachev's "New Thinking" may have been the

 introduction of a total lie rooted in the unthinkable "Russian  Idea"  (see

 Alexander Yanov's 'The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000' (1987)).  There

 is, however, sufficient reason to believe this is the case.

     If  you are wondering how it is that Western civilization and the world

 as whole could be so utterly deceived,  I have a sensible  explanation  for

 you.  After  Jesus  was  crucified  some  2,000 years ago,  his message was

 spread across the world by way of  the  church.  After  a  thousand  years,

 Christianity became the dominant paradigm of society- an historical thesis.

 Then  came  the  rise  of  Western  civilization  and  rapid  technological

 development.  In the  context  of  matter/spirit  duality,  this  epoch  of

 materialism  necessarily  involved  a reaction against spirituality.  Thus,

 over the past 1,000 years the "secular" worldview of science  developed  in

 opposition  to  the  church  and  religion.

     The opposing worldview that  has  emerged,  what  I  refer  to  as  the

 "secular   paradigm",   is   the  historical  antithesis  of  Christianity.

 According to it,  ours is a godless universe that started with a "Big Bang"

 and  is  flowing  towards  ever greater disorder and meaninglessness.  This

 contradicts the idea that,  since the moment of creation,  God has  carried

 out  purposeful  work  to  create  ever  greater  organization and meaning.

 According to the secular paradigm,  life is the  result  of  a  process  of

 elimination   involving   "random   mutation"   and   "natural  selection".

 Contrariwise, Christians believe that life comes from a purposeful, orderly

 process of creation and divine  selection.  With  regard  to  society,  the

 secular worldview holds that, with the guidance of some imaginal "invisible

 hand",  selfishness  and  competition  give  rise to "general equilibrium".

 This contradicts the Christian view  that  unselfish  cooperation  and  the

 guidance of God bring forth social harmony.

     All  in all,  the secular worldview that dominates today's world is the

 antithesis of Christ's worldview.  Whereas Christ saw a harmonious universe

 created by God in which people must seek to cooperate  and  care  for  each

 other,  modern  man  sees  a chaotic,  godless universe in which men create

 order by competing with each other and caring only about themselves.

     The problem is:  What if Jesus told "The  Truth"?  Then  man's  current

 opposing worldview,  the secular paradigm,  is the opposite of truth, i.e.,

 it is lies, false beliefs- popular, antichristian delusions.  In this case,

 man, living according to a perspective that goes against reality, is doomed

 to commit systematic errors.  Instead of bringing order to the world, he'll

 end up causing worse and worse  disorder.  Eventually  his  erroneous  ways

 could  end  in self-destruction.  Once science figured out how to split the

 atom, man had the ultimate means to such an irrational, suicidal End.

     Assuming that Jesus did know "The Truth", he correctly anticipated what

 man  would end up doing to the world.  His "rational expectations" are what

 Christian  prophecy  is  all  about.  Thus,  the  fulfillment  of  biblical

 prophecy, i.e., the outbreak of the Apocalypse, verifies what Christ taught

 the  world  some 2,000 years ago.  We should accept our interdependence and

 love each other as Jesus loved us, lest we end up destroying ourselves.

     The lesson of love Christ demonstrated to the world by life example was

 not a suggestion  for  us  to  heed  or  ignore  as  we  please.  He  fully

 understood a vital universal law,  the Golden Rule,  that must be obeyed so

 that human civilization can avoid self-destructive consequences.  Rejecting

 the beliefs,  values and way of life taught by Jesus makes  about  as  much

 sense as ignoring the the law of gravity and walking off a cliff.  Yet,  it

 is just such senselessness that  man  is  currently  suffering  from,  thus

 leading to the most catastrophic error in human history: The Apocalypse.

           Hopefully, this time man will learn from his mistake...
