Part 33
by Sherman H. Skolnick 5/6/03


The Persian Gulf War Two ended before the actual shooting started. On March 17, 2003, George W. Bush, the occupant and resident of the White House, proclaimed a 48-hour deadline in which the Iraqi strongman, Saddam Hussein, should turn over Weapons of Mass Destruction and he should leave the country.

As of this date, no WMD have been discovered to exist in Iraq. By the time the shooting started, March 20, 2003, Saddam, according to very knowledgeable sources, had already left the country. The exit was arranged by the Moscow government, with the knowledge if not the aid of the Paris government, and with the full knowledge and connivance of British Prime Minister Tony Blair and George W. Bush, as supervised by Daddy Bush. Just as the deadline passed on Wednesday, March 19, 20 03, the American CIA with the U.S. Military brass covered up these and other events herein described, by a much trumpeted effort to supposedly assassinate Saddam in Baghdad, using bunker-busting weapons. It was a treasonous fraud, calculated to distract common Americans addicted, like druggies, to the oil-soaked, spy-riddled monopoly press, to cover up the true nature of what was really happening. According to the best, most well-informed sources, who have in the past been accurate, here is what already had occurred prior to the March 19, 2003, White House deadline:

[1] Tens of millions of dollars had been promised by the American CIA and the Bush White House, to the top generals of Iraq. The contacts with the Iraqi military brass had been started a s long ago as October, 2002, or even before. Part of the pay-offs were already deposited in secret accounts. The plan, agreed upon by all concerned, was to have the major Iraqi military units permit the U.S. Military to quickly take Baghdad, supposedly with a minimum of U.S. casualties. [A heavily-censored, watered down story about the pay-offs "U.S. Bribed Iraqi Military Leaders", The Express, London, UK, 4/18/3.]The opposition to the overwhelmingly superior U.S. fire-power was to be by misled, poorly-informed, poorly-organized local Iraqi bands of shooters, what Americans in a U.S. context would call "patriots" or "militia". These highly nationalistic minded would-be "troops", mostly not even in uniforms, without good clothe s or shoes, were mowed down by the heavily-armed Americans, killing the Iraqis often twenty or more at a time. The Iraqis, some as conscripts, fought, as best they could, as any patriotic citizen of a nation would against foreign invaders attacking their homeland without provocation. History may well describe it as the great slaughter of the innocents.

[2] The bought-off Iraqi generals and other top military officers, and their wives and families, were shortly after the shooting started, flown out of Iraq in U.S. military helicopters. They have been quietly and secretly re-located in the U.S., just as a similar series of events after Persian Gulf War One. In prior exclusive stories, we told about the four thousand or more Iraqi military intelligence and other military officers as supposed "defectors" quietly re-located' after Persian Gulf War One, to the U.S. The Elder Bush, then president, and perpetuated later by Bush crony Clinton as President, jointly knew that some of these supposed POWs were "double agents". Some two thousand such Iraqis, and their wives and children, were set up in Oklahoma City, their housing, food, clothing, and such, paid for by the Elder Bush/Clinton administrations and perpetuated by George W. Bush. "We're rolling out the welcome wagon to prisoners of war, yet our own veterans who fought there are having trouble getting any help", said Congressman Clifford Steans (R., Florida). Said U.S. Senator John Warner (R., Va.)!

, "I find it unconscionable that an Iraqi combatant soldier would be admitted into this country under refugee status and be given certain privileges and benefits and indeed a job at a time when many, many U.S. veterans...cannot or have not been able to get comparable benefits.""FINAL REPORT On the Bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building April 19, 1995" , by the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee, published 2001, pages 476-477. Some two thousand of these Iraqi officers have been housed i n Oklahoma City. The chief defense counsel, Stephen Jones, in an unpublicized higher court petition on behalf of defendant Timothy McVeigh, contended that U.S. dissidents, whether they knew it completely or not, were domestic surrogates for a secret Ir aqi operation to get revenge on the U.S. for the Persian Gulf War One. Attorney Jones' 185 page court filing, amazingly, referred to both the public and SECRET McVeigh court record. [Visit, for example, our website series of stori! es on McVeigh.]

[3] The wire service, United Press International, owned wholly or in part by the American CIA, suddenly ran a story, 4/10/3, "Saddam Key in Early CIA Plot", telling how Saddam as a young man became part of a CIA-assassination squad to snuff out Iraqi leaders, paving the way for Saddam as dictator. Hey! Why did the CIA suddenly, at this late date, tell us this, through their puppet wire service fakers?

In 1916, with the downfall of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, the victorious British took over Mesopotamia as a protectorate. In so doing they more or less tried to weld together three countries, as Iraq, made up of warring tribes, religions, and groups. By the 1930s, recognizing failure, the Brits dumped Iraq. During World War Two, oil-rich Iraq and Iran were both pro-Hitler monarchist types, an inviting target for the Nazis to try to over-run Cairo and seize the Mid-East. After the war, a sizeable political party was the Communist Party of Iraq. To combat them and assassinate pro-Moscow Reds, was the purpose of the American CIA and the Ba'ath political party and the installation of dictator Saddam who kept the warring factions within Iraq together as one nation, using savagery and the iron fist against dissidents.

[4] In the 1980s, Daddy Bush and Saddam Hussein were private business partners, sharing billions and billions of dollars from shaking down the weak, oil-soaked sheikdoms of the Gulf. The foreign bank records showing this became the subject of an publicized suit in the Federal Courts in Chicago. I was the only journalist attending the hearing and writing an exclusive story about it. [Visit our website story, "The Secrets of Timothy McVeigh".] This vast extortion horde became the secret subject of a U.S. Treasury Internal Affairs unit inquiry examining the 25 secret worldwide accounts of the Bush Crime Family, jointly held loot with Saddam Hussein. For example, the Bushies had a One Hundred Billion Dollar joint account with the Queen of England, at her private bank, Coutts Bank London. These transactions were done with the aid of Federal Reserve Commissar Alan Greenspan, using his secret authorization code. The authenticated documents and the details are in our websites eries "Greenspan Aids and Bribes Bush". Prior to the actual shooting "war" starting March 20, 2003, billions and billions of dollars of these Bush/Saddam extortion loot were transferred through the Royal Bank of Jordan in part to the Central Bank of Iraq. [The Kingdom of Jordan has been a recipient of huge funds for more than 40 years from the American CIA. The Royal Bank of Jordan is a form of reputed CIA proprietary. See our website story, "Overthrow", Kingdom of Jordan Link, part Part 25.]

On May 6 , 2003, the New York Times ran a heavily-censored, watered down story how upwards of one billion dollars of this was extracted by Saddam's son just before the shooting started. The New York Times did not bother to remind themselves of their earlier story about the possibility of huge amounts of U.S. paper currency, found in Iraq, might be counterfeit. [Visit other parts of this series as to the superior quality counterfeit U.S. money.] [5] It should come as no surprise to those who are well-informed and NOT naive, that Saddam has been playing dirty games, against his own people, for the benefit of the American CIA while Saddam was/is supposedly "an enemy". Saddam, prior to the shooting started in Persian Gulf War Two, reportedly ended up in Switzerland, to have his face changed by expert plastic surgeons. From there, he was transported to Paris where the French CIA can use him, if they see fit, to blackmail the Bush White House to get a piece of the post-Iraq War oil treasure and re-construction. After all, Saddam is an eyewitness whose direct testimony could put Daddy Bush and Bush, Jr., in prison and/or public ridicule, as war criminals, as having invaded another nation without legal or U.S. Constitutional basis. The leaked out Bush Crime Family worldwide secret accounts are, in part, by way of Saddam's half-brother in Switzerland. The Bush Crime Family, in transferring just a small part of this loot for the exile of Saddam, are keeping Saddam from his "proper" portion that he would be "entitled to" as a private business partner of Daddy Bush in shake-down and extortion. Cynical lawyers might point out, however, that a falling out of thieves cannot be a subject of a court partnership damage suit, since under American law it would be "against public policy", sort of like a bank robber caught by a policeman, sueing for "brutality".

[6] Some items, some summarized, that have to be considered ===Supervised by Daddy Bush, George W. Bush has committed treason against the American people, which is becoming more and more known by those overseas.===There was no basis in international law, United Nations rules, or the U.S. Constitution, for the attack on Iraq, there being, appare! ntly no WMD and Saddam Hussein had already gone into exile.===The so-called "war", was a fraud and a sham. Unfortunately, the American newsfakers are concealing that U.S. casualties in the conflict were much, much greater than the monopoly press announces. Some estimate that upwards of 800 Americans perished---U.S. military, American CIA clandestine, out-of-uniform types, Special Forces, and other Special American operatives---and as many as five thousand of the same wounded.===The Iraqi oil treasure, second largest in the world, is to be used, as collateral, to support U.S. out-of-control debt, to aid Bush in seeking to give a huge tax cut to the very wealthy. An additional purpose, if not the actual main one, is that the Iraqi oil treasure is to head-off (maybe actually impossible to sidestep), the downfall of the "U.S. Dollar" and the looming possible default of U.S. Treasury securities, 40 per cent of which currently are owned by the Japanese and the Saudi Royal Family (! both since 1973, having THEIR U.S. Treasury paper backed by U.S. Gold, not so for ordinary Americans).===Is some of the billions turned over to Saddam by the Bush Crime Family, proceeds of their joint extortion loot, actually superior quality counterfe it U.S. paper money? [Visit earlier parts of this series for related items.] Is Saddam, savvy about this, in the process of dumping this phoney baloney money BACK onto the U.S., aiding the British in their long-time plans to destroy the U.S. Central Gov ernment?

Depleted Uranium Radioactive Contamination In Iraq: An Overview

Go to link in title.


Federation of American Scientists: Depleted Uranium

In military applications, when alloyed, Depleted Uranium [DU] is ideal for use in armor penetrators. These solid metal projectiles have the speed, mass and physical properties to perform exceptionally well against armored targets. DU provides a substantial performance advantage, well above other competing materials. This allows DU penetrators to defeat an armored target at a significantly greater distance. Also, DU's density and physical properties make it ideal for use as armor plate. DU has been used in weapon systems for many years in both applications.

Depleted uranium results from the enriching of natural uranium for use in nuclear reactors. Natural uranium is a slightly radioactive metal that is present in most rocks and soils as well as in many rivers and sea water. Natural uranium consists primarily of a mixture of two isotopes (forms) of uranium, Uranium-235 (U235) and Uranium-238 (U238), in the proportion of about 0.7 and 99.3 percent, respectively. Nuclear reactors require U235 to produce energy, therefore, the natural uranium has to be enriched to obtain the isotope U235 by removing a large part of the U238. Uranium-238 becomes DU, which is 0.7 times as radioactive as natural uranium. Since DU has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, there is very little decay of those DU materials.

Uncovered: The Whole Truth About The Iraq War



The Whole Truth About The Iraq War

Robert Greenwald - 87 minutes: Windows Media

An impressive roster of experts is assembled to provide a generally withering commentary on the quality of evidence and possible motivations of the Neo-conservatives who provided the momentum and muscle behind America's venture into preemptive war. Among them are veteran CIA analysts and operatives, military officers, diplomats, politicians, arms inspectors, and U.S. and British government officials. The fig leaf of the possibility of an honest mistake on the matter of WMDs is stripped away; what is left is the stark and disturbing anatomy of deliberate deceit.

Maurice Pinay Blog: Cardinal Martini Restates His Bad Advice, “We Must Learn to Love [Counterfeit] Israel More”

Maurice Pinay Blog: Cardinal Martini Restates His Bad Advice, “We Must Learn to Love [Counterfeit] Israel More”

Cardinal Martini Restates His Bad Advice, “We Must Learn to Love [Counterfeit] Israel More”

Cardinal Martini, that old enemy of Jesus Christ and the Gospel, is unrelenting in his attacks on both in the service of his Judaic "superiors" (his words, read below). Anyone who follows the path of Cardinal Martini in his quest to have Christians filter their understanding of the Gospel through modern Judaic culture and rabbinic tradition will be rendered utterly alien to Jesus and His teaching. Jesus condemned the Pharisees harshly for rendering Old Testament scripture of no effect by their traditions. Cardinal Martini is rendering Jesus' teaching of no effect through the rabbinic tradition which is the heir of the pharisaic tradition as Pope Benedict XVI's favorite rabbi Jacob Nuesner has said:
"The Pharisees are important for two reasons. First, the Gospels portray them as one of the principle opposition groups to Jesus. Second, Judaism as we know it generally traces its roots back to the Pharisees." (Jacob Neusner, Judaism in the Beginning of Christianity [Philadelphia: Fortress Press 1984], p.45)
Cardinal Martini was the organizer of the October 2008 synod on scripture which featured an address from Rabbi She'ar-Yashuv Cohen, a disciple of the militant messianic Zionist Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Kook HERE, HERE, HERE.

Cardinal Martini's hostilities to the Gospel are legion. A substantial book could be written on the topic. For now I direct readers to items HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Cardinal Martini: “We must learn to love Israel more”

Giorgio Bernardelli - Vatican Insider

September 8, 2011

“It is not enough not to be anti- Semitic. One must love Israel with a love that is open to everything and everyone.” This is what Carlo Maria Martini, an expert on Judaism and Israel (where he lived for a long time as a Biblicist) had to say on the Catholic Church’s relation with Jews, and, indirectly, on the clouds that form now and again over this relationship.

The old prelate’s (who left Jerusalem a few years ago and now lives in the Jesuits House of Studies in Northern Italian city of Gallarate) appeal appears in the preface written by the Archbishop Emeritus of Milan for “the new book by Alberto Mello, a monk of the Bose Brotherhood in Jerusalem and an expert on Judaism. The book, which comes out in the next few days and is published by EDB editions in Bologna, inaugurates the “Christians and Jews” series, which aims at promoting a theologically deeper understanding between individuals of both faiths. It was this goal in fact that got Cardinal Martini thinking. “Until some time ago, the cardinal-Biblicist recalled, instruments for the creation of this mutual understanding were hard to go by. Relations between the two were often hazy and exposed to controversy. Even the dialogue process takes time. We have to admit that at least for the majority of Christians, their relationship with their own roots was unclear and there was no awareness of the huge religious heritage the two communities had in common.”

The turning point for this situation, Martini recalled, was Vatican Council II which abandoned all accusations of deicide and gave birth to a number of groups that promoted dialogue. It was not a one track movement: “Thanks in some part to my biblical studies and to my five year stay in Jerusalem, the cardinal wrote, I had the opportunity to come into contact with quite a few Jewish monks. I must say that they too showed an inclination to engage in dialogue with Christians. There are however many sore points: “The meeting with our “superiors”, Martini continued, must take into account the fact that they have a very difficult background that dates back to the early centuries of the Church’s existence, culminating in the Holocaust.”

How should these obstacles be overcome then? The historical and theological ability in addressing delicate issues is certainly important. But, as the Archbishop of Milan rightly said, this is not enough. Just as it is not enough to simply abstain from an anti-Semitic attitude. “We must love the Jewish culture of today, their music, their literature, their history, their way of praying and their way of celebrating. Only such a love, the Archbishop of Milan concluded, is capable of allowing individuals to overcome their fears and existing difficulties, giving way to dialogue and that joy and humanity that exists in a meeting between friends.”

The purpose of Alberto Mello’s book is to help explain why this meeting between friends is so important. It is not merely a guide to help one obtain a better reading of the Gospels; indeed, the Bosean monk starts with the idea that if, as the Church’s teaching today says, “Jesus is Jewish and he always has been,” then “his historical path, his gestures and his words are to be read in a Jewish context.”

And precisely for this reason, “these are still relevant for Jews as well as Christians.” Mello, therefore, accurately addresses topics such as the question of the relationship between Jesus and the Essenes, he compares his prediction with those of a few other intellectuals who lived in Galilee at the same time as him, he helps readers understand how a series of popular expressions taken from the Gospels, about Saturday, about what is pure and impure and about divorce fit perfectly in the debate on the halachà, the rules of etiquette to be followed in the practice of the Torah. The idea of Swedish exegete Birger Gerhardsson which Mello picks up on, according to which, the famous parable of the sower is an interpretation of the three faculties with which people are asked to love God in the Shemà Yisrael (the most important prayer for Jews), is fascinating. Israel prays with all its heart, soul and force. With this as a starting point, it is easy to see why the road, the stones and the thorns in the explanation Jesus himself gives in the evangelical text, correspond perfectly to the distractions of the heart, the mutability of people in the face of persecution and of worldly temptations and material wealth.

A book which offers the possibility for the Gospels to be re-read adopting a common perspective, cultivating that “love for Israel” which Cardinal Martini points to as the crucial step forward which today’s dialogue between Christians and Jews is so very much in need of.

"We must learn to Love [counterfeit] Israel More"

My question is why? Msgr. Martini, why?

How many more times will the Jews hang Haman? ...and kill all of their enemies... I really think the book of Esther is apocryphal-serpent worshiping-Gnostic trash. IT MOST CERTAINLY ISN'T THE GOSPELS.

What the Jews are doing to Palestine now, is as terrible a genocide as any they have done in the past.

Execution of Romanian Marshal Antonescu 1946, German POWs 1945 by Soviet Jews.

Israeli Jews who executed Saddam Hussein (or his double) were in all probability descended from the Eastern European Jews who murdered Antonescu and many, many, many Slavs all during the time prior to and during much of the Naqba.


In Moroccan Jewish communities, a Purim bread called Ojos de Haman or Eyes of Haman is sometimes baked in the shape of Haman's head, and the eyes which are made of eggs are plucked out to demonstrate the destruction of Haman. Among the Polish Jews, Koilitch, a raisin Purim challah which is baked in a long twisted ring and topped with small colorful candies is meant to evoke the colorful nature of the holiday.
Yeah, blood red!

Saddam Hussien Execution

Execution of Romanian Marshal Antonescu 1946, German POWs 1945 by Soviet Jews. Very Graphic Videos! After watching it, something happened to me. You Be careful.

General Picky Vasiliu/Saturday, 1 June 1946, 16:00 hours, Mrs. Maria Antonescu arrived from Bucharest in a car and brought her husband and the others, at their request, 16 meters of tricolor ribbons
in the Romanian national colors. She came free and spoke to her husband marshal Ion Antonescu for about and hour, sitting at a table under the supervision of an agent and of a gendarme. Before 1700 hours a priest came and gave all the convicts the Eucharist, with the exception of Ion Antonescu who refused and said: Forgive me father, but I refuse the Eucharist because I have Mihai Antonescu on my conscience. He should have stayed at the University where he was one of the best professors, but I am guilty of taking him in the Government.They were taken under a heavy prison guard escort to the execution site, in the so-called Peach Trees' Valley, allowing only the gendarmes, which were standing guard, and some Russian and Romanian camera operators and journalists to assist. The convicts stood willingly near the execution poles. The firing squad, formed from prison guards and gendarmes, took up a U shaped formation and the State Attorney read slowly and in a loud voice the sentence to the convicts.

The State Attorney then asked for their last wishes. The convicts answered: Ion Antonescu asked to be executed by the army, not by prison guards, but he was refused, to which he replied: Scumbags, scumbags! Mihai Antonescu said he had nothing to say. Being completely exhausted. Alexianu the same General Picky Vasiliu wished to be shot by his gendarmes, which had gathered to see him. The State Attorney refused. Vasiliu then said: Attention Gendarmes and saluted them and then said Good bye! waving his hand. Then he added: I ask the State Attorney to ask the comrades prison guards to aim good and not make me suffer. Then he asked to cover his eyes, to which the guards replied: We do not have anything to cover them so he took off his gray scarf and said: use my scarf.
Then the command for the execution was given. The weapons were loaded and when they were fired the Marshal saluted by raising his hat with the right hand, after which they all fell down.

The Marshal immediately rose up, leaning on his elbow and said: You didn't shoot me gentlemen, fire!, after which the chief guard went with his pistol to Antonescu and shot him in the head. The doctor consulted them and came to the conclusion that the Marshal and Vasiliu were still alive.

The chief guard fired another shot in the chest of Antonescu and then of Vasiliu and the doctor examined them and said they still weren't dead. The chief guard went again to Vasiliu,
but his pistol jammed when he tried to fire it.

He took a rifle from one of the guards and fired one shot in Vasiliu's head, but then it also jammed. He changed it with another one and fired another 3 shots in different parts of Vasiliu's body and then went to the Marshal and fired 3 shots in his chest.

The doctor examined them and said that Antonescu was dead,but Vasiliu was still alive. Again the guard fired a shot in Vasiliu's head.The result: Vasiliu's brains were coming out of his head, but he was still moving and saying something we couldn't understand. The guard went again to to him and fired two shots in the head and after this the doctor said that Vasiliu too was dead. They were carried on stretchers to a van, which took them away. From the moment when the convicts left the cells and until their bodies were loaded into the buses,they were filmed by two cameras operated by a Romanian and a Russian. Name of the guard: Furgina Observations: for the execution, 17 guards volunteered and only 12 were picked. This report was found by Stejarel Olaru in the archives of the CNSAS ">

The Testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Revelation of The Lord God Jesus Christ

The Book of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist of the Revelation Given Him by the Risen Lord Jesus Christ.


The Apocalypse is a revelation of things that were, are and will be. We are actually witnessing some of the events foretold in this book, but many still lie in the future. It is Christ who commands John to write to the seven churches, opens the seven seals, reveals the sufferings of the saints, opens the little book, overcomes the beast, reigns during the period of the first resurrection, judges the dead, both great and small, according to their works at His Second Coming, rules over all things from the beginning, presides over all the changing scenes of earth’s history, and is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

The book presents Christ as the Coming One; it reveals the dealings of Him who came, and who is to come. It opens with the solemn hope that the Coming One will come soon, and closes with the impressive prediction that the Coming One will come quickly.

The book is one of hope, but also one of warning; its aim is to assure the Church of the advent of her Lord in victory. The precise time of this victory lies hidden with God, but it is certain, although the crown will not be won without a struggle. Heaven will be stormed and carried away through suffering and conflict. And all who keep the words of this book will take part in the conflict and share in the victory.The conflict is presented under the form of symbols. It is not easy to give a full interpretation of all the types, but the general symbols are not difficult to understand. Jerusalem stands as the type of the good cause, and this is the Church of Christ. Babylon appears as the type of the evil cause, and this is the world power. The heavenly Jerusalem has the assistance of divine power. The earthly Babylon has the help of evil powers, the dragon, the beast and the false prophet. The scenes in the great conflict arrange themselves  around these types of good and of evil. The numbers, the seals, the trumpets and the bowls are phases in the development and consummation of the conflict.

John has arranged the scenes in a sevenfold structure; even in the subordinate visions he keeps to this arrangement. Commentators, however, are not agreed in marking off the limits of each structure.

The book was written in Greek by St. John the Evangelist, on the island of Patmos, about the year. 96 A.D.

Note on parallel passages and commentary. The parallel passages are based on the full concordance thereof relating to, from the Council of Trent; the commentary is late 1940’s Catholic from the full consensus of the Church Fathers on the seven within seven structure of the book.

Also note that the book at the same time “opens from the middle” so to speak. Just like a megilloth (Hebrew for scroll). The first eleven chapters (1 – 11) which culminate in the general judgement – Rev. 11:18 – 19

And the nations were angry: and thy wrath is come. And the time of the dead, that they should be judged and that thou shouldest render reward to thy servants the prophets and the saints, and to them that fear thy name, little and great: and shouldest destroy them who have corrupted  the earth.

And the temple of God was opened in heaven: and the ark of his testament was seen in his temple. And there were lightnings and voices and an earthquake and great hail. (DRV)
And the second eleven chapters (12 – 22) which culminate in the general judgement (Rev. 20:11 – 14) and the New Heaven and New Earth (Rev. 21, 22)

Both the first and second eleven chapters begin from the time of Christ’s Incarnation but include the fact that He is Immortal and the Creator of Heaven and Earth. See: Rev. 1:4 – 6 John to the seven churches which are in Asia. Grace be unto you and peace, from him that is and that was and that is to come: and from the seven spirits which are before his throne:
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth, who hath loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood (when He became Incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the blessed virgin Mary and went to the Cross for our salvation)

And hath made us a kingdom, and priests to God and his Father. To him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.(DRV)

And see: Rev. 12:1, 2, 5
And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being with child, she cried travailing in birth: and was in pain to be delivered.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod (Christ’s Incarnation). And her son was taken up to God and to his throne (Christ’s Resurrection and Ascension). (DRV)

And see: Rev.:21:6:
6 And he said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega: the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsteth, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. (DRV)

These two phrases that is and that was and that is to come (Greek “‘o oon kai ‘o en kai ‘o erchoumenos”) and I am Alpha and Omega (Greek: “egoo eimi to Alpha kai to Omega”) are emphatic declarations of Christ’s Divinity and Immortality for it is the Thrice Holy Trinity – Rv:4:8 And the four living creatures had each of them six wings: and round about and within they are full of eyes. And they rested not day and night, saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come. (Greek “‘agious ‘agious ‘agious kurios ‘o theos ‘o pantocrator”) – alone Who possesses Aseity (self existence and Who is therefore alone uncreated) and Who is Immortal of the same Essence/Substance – Nature.

In the above: the “who [that] is”, in Greek “‘o oon”, is the declaration of Aseity. The “who [that] was” and the “who [that] is to come” with the “‘o oon”, self existence, is the declaration of Immortality (having no beginning and no end – always existing). The phrase I am Alpha and Omega has exactly the same meaning. “I am” – “egoo eimi” is the equivalent of Yahweh (God’s proper name) in Hebrew meaning “I am” in the same sense as the above “‘o oon”. Alpha and Omega has the same meaning as Immortality in the above. Pantocrator (translated as Almighty) is the declaration of the Thrice Holy Lord God’s All ruling absolute Sovereignty and includes emphatically the meaning that He is alone uncreated and Creator, ex nihilo, of all of creation. This relates directly to the beginning of the Gospel of St. John and the beginning of the first book of the Torah (the Pentateuch) which is Genesis. See: Genesis 1:1 through 2:4 and St. John’s Gospel 1:1 through vs. 18. All of this and the exact seventy human generations recounted in St. Luke’s Gospel 3:1 – 38 from Adam to Christ (see also the parallel in St. Matthew’s Gospel 1:1 – 25 from Abraham to Christ) and the testimony of the Church Fathers does not allow any pagan evolutionary gods nor even sophist pantheistic idolatrous creationism but only creation by the Creator as He said He did it, and only Redemption in God and His Christ (the Messiah, al-Maseeh) as He said that it is; the false gods or pagan idolatrous religions that willfully reject God and Jesus Christ (those who do not willfully reject Him but seek God in their hearts are judged by God alone) are without grace and they and their followers will be damned forever, who do not repent in this life from those false gods and religions and come to God and His Christ and make confession in Him and be baptized by God’s Spirit {believers in monotheistic Islam who confess the Holy Trinity and Jesus Christ as the Son of God and all men of good will who worship only this God (in the full consensus of the Church Fathers) are included as true believers in the true God and therefore saved by their confession of belief in and fulfilling the will of God, Allah (SWT) and who are therefore called to come to Christ and confess Him by Baptism of water and the Spirit in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit}. Allah is from biblical Hebrew ‘Eloah’ and means the true God, All middle Eastern Christians, including Catholics, who are Arabic speakers call on Allah as the name of the true God. Amen.

Note on parallel passage notation – the ! after a scriptural reference means that is the emphasis or central point for explanation of the passage.
