Armageddon in Scripture is known only from a single verse in the Greek New
Testament, where it is said to be
Hebrew, but it is
thought to represent the Hebrew words Har
Megido, meaning "Hill of Megiddo".
Megiddo was the location of many
decisive battles in ancient times.
Jehovah's Witness' believe that
Armageddon is the battle when Satan unites the kings of the Earth against God's
appointed King, Christ.
Rastafari believe it is
Haile Selassie who appears in the Book of Revelation.
Adventists believe the final battle of Armageddon will take place after the
thousand-year period mentioned in the Book of Revelation, where the righteous
dwell with God in heaven and the wicked are judged.
According to this account,
Christ and his saints will leave the Heavenly kingdom they now reside in and
come down to Earth to save the righteous.
Christ will raise the wicked
dead, and Satan will prepare them to engage in one
final battle between
good and evil.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
