The vesica piscis is a shape that is the intersection of two circles with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each circle lies on the perimeter of the other. The name literally means the "bladder of a fish"in Latin. The shape is also called mandorla ("almond" in Italian).
The most famous example in nature of the vesica piscis is a solar eclipse. At various points in the Moon's orbit, it appears to be exactly the same size of the Sun when both are observed from Earth. As the Moon moves to cover the Sun, it forms a vesica piscis. This had great significance to the ancients. In many ancient cultures, the Sun was a male god and the Moon a goddess, and the vesica piscis symbolized an opening or gateway between these two polarities through which creation can take place. The ancient Egyptians practiced sacred geometry based on "As above, so below". Architects and artists copied the solar eclipse/vesica piscis and its mathematics in their sacred buildings and artwork to reflect their religious beliefs. This ancient tradition was passed on through the centuries by the Freemasons.
there is a higher power who is driving, and controlling them, and it is reptilian in nature.
...and Islam (created with the help of the Roman Catholic Church to wipe out the eastern Christian end of their empire which would have nothing to do with the apostate teachings of the Papacy)?
Hinduism believes that the world lives through four “yugas” (ages or periods of time). These four ages are known as Kruta Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dvapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga.
The final age, the Kali Yuga, is one of moral destruction, degradation, strife, and vice. This age is associated with Kali a male apocalyptic demon not to be confused with the goddess Kālī (read as Kaalee). Kali is said to be a negative manifestation of Vishnu and the cause of all evil during this age.
In this age of corruption rulers are said to turn from their noble duties and become that of plunderers levying unreasonable taxes. Some texts even speak of cannibalism by the rulers, there victims primarily being the last true righteous on the Earth. The Vipras or Brahmins gradually lose control over the people. Interest in the spiritual world will cease and focus primarily on the material world becoming godless. Greed and wrath will become common where open displays of animosity and even murder are not seen as wrong or immoral. Sin will increase and while virtue fades away out of the memory of men. Men take little pride in their jobs and the caste system breaks down. Men are considered pious only if they are wealthy.
At this time of corruption is seen the savior of the age known as Kalki. Kalki originating from the word “kalka” refers to filth and foulness and thus denotes that Kalki is the destroyer of foulness, darkness, and ignorance. Kalki comes to destroy the wicked and re-establish righteousness on Earth bringing about the start of the Kruta Yuga, or age of purity. Kalki is the tenth and last avatar of Vishnu and is the nemesis of the demon Kali.
Then, Mr. Lambert revealed that, "when Lord Maitreya appears, he will appear as different beings to different people.
* He will appear as a man to a man and as a woman to a woman.
* He will appear as a white to a white, as a black to a black, as an Indian to an Indian, etc."

This sounds like a long list of Alex Jones novels...
How does the infiltrator's logic say that because Bill Lambert says that the Pope is a proper receptor for Christ that it makes him the False Prophet? Plus, who cares what this Bill Lambert says?
I gave the disclaimer 'I don't agree with all the Biblical interpretations this person tries to place on the material presented'....this is on one of the said points.
Thank you for your link on Hinduism, I will check it out.
All pagan father, mother, children (mystery) religions including Hinduism are based on those contrived embellishments from Babylon (Sumer).
All pagan father, mother, children (mystery) religions including Hinduism are based on those contrived embellishments from Babylon (Sumer). Yeah, that does not historically add up and some religions, mythologies, and legends are far older than the Nimrod story.
The list of the deathless mortals who suffered for man that he might receive the boon of eternal life is an imposing one. Among those connected historically or allegorically with a crucifixion are Prometheus, Adonis, Apollo, Arys, Bacchus, Buddha, Christna(Krishna), Horus, Indra, Ixion, Mithras, Osiris, Pythagoras, Quetzalcoatl, Semiramis, and Jupiter.

The myth of Tammuz and Ishtar is one of the earliest examples of the dying-god allegory, probably antedating 4000 B. C. (See Babylonia and Assyria by Lewis Spence.) The imperfect condition of the tablets upon which the legends are inscribed makes it impossible to secure more than a fragmentary account of the Tammuz rites. Being the esoteric god of the sun, Tammuz did not occupy a position among the first deities venerated by the Babylonians, who for lack of deeper knowledge looked upon him as a god of agriculture or a vegetation spirit. Originally he was described as being one of the guardians of the gates of the underworld. Like many other Savior-Gods, he is referred to as a “shepherd” or “the lord of the shepherd seat.” Tammuz occupies the remarkable position of son and husband of Ishtar, the Babylonian and Assyrian Mother-goddess. Ishtar – to whom the planer Venus was sacred – was the most widely venerated deity of the Babylonian and Assyrian pantheon. She was probably identical with Ashterorh, Astarte, and Aphrodite. The story of her descent into the underworld in search presumably for the sacred elixir which alone could restore Tammuz to life is the key to the ritual of her Mysteries.
Tammuz, whose annual festival took place just before the summer solstice, died in midsummer in the ancient month which bore his name, and was mourned with elaborate ceremonies. The manner of his death is unknown, but some of the accusations made against Ishtar by Izdubar (Nimrod) would indicate that she, indirectly at least, had contributed to his demise. The resurrection of Tammuz was the occasion of great rejoicing, at which time he was hailed as a “redeemer” of his people. With outspread wings, Ishtar, the daughter of Sin (the Moon), sweeps downward to the gates of death. The house of darkness – the dwelling of the god Irkalla – is described as “the place of no return.” It is without light; the nourishment of those who dwell therein is dust and their food is mud. Over the bolts on the door of the house of Irkalla is scattered dust, and the keepers of the house are covered with feathers like birds. Ishtar demands that the keepers open the gates, declaring that if they do not she will shatter the doorposts and strike the hinges and raise up dead devourers of the living.
The guardians of the gates beg her to be patient while they go to the queen of Hades from whom they secure permission to admit Ishtar, but only in the same manner as all others came to this dreary house. Ishtar thereupon descends through the seven gates which lead downward into the depths of the underworld. At the first gate the great crown is removed from her head, at the second gate the earrings from her ears, at the third gate the necklace from her neck, at the fourth gate the ornaments from her breast, at the fifth gate the girdle from her waist, at the sixth gate the bracelets from her hands and feet, and at the seventh gate the covering cloak of her body. Ishtar remonstrates as each successive article of apparel is taken from her, but the guardian tells her that this is the experience of all who enter the somber domain of death.
Enraged upon beholding Ishtar, the Mistress of Hades inflicts upon her all manner of disease
and imprisons her in the underworld.
As Ishtar represents the spirit of fertility, her loss prevents the ripening of the crops
and the maturing of all life upon the earth.
In this respect the story parallels the legend of Persephone. The gods, realizing that the
loss of Ishtar is disorganizing all Nature, send a messenger to the underworld and demand
her release. The Mistress of Hades is forced to comply, and the water of life is poured over
Ishtar. Thus cured of the infirmities inflicted on her, she retraces her way upward through
the seven gates, at each of which she is reinvested with the article of apparel which the
guardians had removed. (See The Chaldean Account of Genesis.) No record exists that
Ishtar secured the water of life which would have wrought the resurrection of Tammuz.

...unlike the Bible which is pin-point accurate with its time prophecies as they are given by someone outside of time.
The myth of Ishtar symbolizes the descent of the human spirit through the seven worlds, or spheres of the sacred planets, until finally, deprived of its spiritual adornments, it incarnates in the physical body – Hades – where the mistress of that body heaps every form of sorrow and misery upon the imprisoned consciousness. The waters of life – the secret doctrine – cure the diseases of ignorance; and the spirit, ascending again to its divine source, regains its God-given adornments as it passes upward through the rings of the planets.
The Mysteries of Adonis, or Adoni, were celebrated annually in many parts of Egypt,
Phoenicia, and Biblos. The name Adonis, or Adoni, means “Lord” and was a designation applied
to the sun and later borrowed by the Jews as the exoteric name of their God. Smyrna,
mother of Adonis, was turned into a tree by the gods and after a time the bark burst open
and the infant Savior issued forth.
According to one account, he was liberated by a wild
boar which split the wood of the maternal tree with its tusks. Adonis was born at midnight
of the 24th of December, and through his unhappy death a Mystery rite was established that
wrought the salvation of his people. In the Jewish month of Tammuz (another name for this
deity) he was gored to death by a wild boar sent by the god Ars (Mars). The Adoniasmos was
the ceremony of lamenting the premature death of the murdered god.
In Ezekiel viii. 14, it is written that women were weeping for Tammuz (Adonis) at the
north gate of the Lord’s House in Jerusalem.
Sir James George Frazer cites Jerome thus:
“He tells us that Bethlehem, the traditionary birthplace of the Lord, was shaded
by a grove of that still older Syrian Lord, Adonis, and that where the infant Jesus
had wept, the lover of Venus was bewailed.” (See The Golden Bough.)
The effigy of a wild boar is said to have been set over one of the gates of Jerusalem in
honor of Adonis, and his rites celebrated in the grotto of the Nativity at Bethlehem. Adonis
as the “gored” (or “god”) man is one of the keys to Sir Francis Bacon’s use of the “wild
boar” in his cryptic symbolism.
Adonis was originally an androgynous deity who represented the solar power which in
the winter was destroyed by the evil principle of cold – the boar. After three days (months)
in the tomb, Adonis rose triumphant on the 25th day of March, amidst the acclamation of
his priests and followers, “He is risen!” Adonis was born out of a myrrh tree. Myrrh, the symbol of death because of its connection with the process of embalming, was one of the
gifts brought by the three Magi to the manger of Jesus.
In the Mysteries of Adonis the neophyte passed through the symbolic death of the
god and, “raised” by the priests, entered into the blessed state of redemption made
possible by the sufferings of Adonis. Nearly all authors believe Adonis to have been
originally a vegetation god directly connected with the growth and maturing of flowers
and fruits. In support of this viewpoint they describe the “gardens of Adonis, “ which
were small baskets of earth in which seeds were planted and nurtured for a period of
eight days. When those plants prematurely died for lack of sufficient earth, they were
considered emblematic of the murdered Adonis and were usually cast into the sea with
images of the god.

Well it is not really surprising they are going to be out on their predictions, unlike the Bible which is pin-point accurate with its time prophecies as they are given by someone outside of time.
Is there any evidence for this? Clear-cut, irrefutable proof that the writers of those prophecies were under the influence of any divine being.
What will happen to you if I gather up some significant evidence for you?
I have presented 'irrefutable' evidence to others in the past
Are you open or closed to information that is of eternal importance to you....or are you more interested in point scoring?
give me a list of a few types of evidence that you might want as well, not just prophetic in nature

I also disagree with those comments concerning the 'Anti-Christ'...I think that this needs to be really said or else we will continue on this paradox...The 'Anti-Christ' is not a person, it is a way of life...It is when the 'BEAST' or Ego of the Self takes over and becomes consumed in it's animalistic desires of greed, selfishness, dog eat dog world, etc. People need to stop looking for an unknown person to pop up proclaiming to be the Messiah and lead us into demon worship, this is all part of the 'Church's' plan.
