The Antichrist and His Many Titles

The video is from Chris White, and gives a glimpse both of scripture and what Israel and Jews are looking for from the Messiah at this late hour of history.  The text is some scripture I have gathered and mentions of few of the different titles regarding the Antichrist throughout the Bible.  We can never study too much...


The term “Antichrist” is used only four times in scripture, all of those in the letters of 1st and 2nd John.  While the specific title is not often used in the Bible, the aura of the character is so powerful that is has become a part of our culture be it Christian or not.  Antichrist means “in place of” or “against” Christ.  The term can refer to one specific character yet to appear on the stage of history, or anyone in the sense that they deny that Jesus Christ came in the flesh (1 John 4:3) or deny God the Father and Jesus the Son (1 John 2:22).

The Antichrist that draws our attention in prophecy is one particular man who will be the consummate Antichrist.  He will appear on the scene of history at the end of the age and take his stand in place of and opposition to Jesus the Messiah.  Following are some of the many titles and prophecies that have been given of him throughout scripture.


The first prophecy in scripture is in Genesis 3:15.  There the Lord pronounced that “…I will put enmity (hostility/hatred) between thee (the Serpent) and the woman, and between thy seed (Antichrist) and her seed; it (the seed of the woman/Messiah) shall bruise thy head and thou (the serpent) shalt bruise his (Messiah’s) heel.”  Here in this passage we see the coming of Antichrist called the “seed of the Serpent”.  This is very telling, as we know a great deal about the seed of the woman in the person of Jesus Christ.  Jesus is both fully divine and fully human.  He has the Holy Spirit as His physical Father, yet He was born of a human mother.  And He is the representative, Savior and “Firstfruits” of all who would be obedient to God and trust in Him for their salvation and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:20).  It is not unlikely that the Antichrist will meet these same features, yet in a fully sinister and ungodly way.

In Revelation 13 and 17 we get more detail about the character and work of the Antichrist.  In this letter, John, the same writer who coined the term, does not use Antichrist as a description, but here refers to him as the “Beast”.  This is from the Greek word “therion” which means vicious, savage, and fierce.  While there is more than one Beast described in Revelation, we can conclusively define this Beast as the Antichrist.  It is important to remember that this term is describing both a kingdom and a man.  Let’s look closely at the descriptions here:

-         The Beast rises or originates from the sea (Rev. 13:1) This may be descriptive of both the man and kingdom.

-         The Beast kingdom has seven heads or kings. (Rev. 17:3-7)

-         The Beast has ten horns symbolic of kings and/or kingdoms.  (Rev. 13:1, 17:7, Dan. 7:19-20)

-         The Beast has a crown on each horn symbolic of authority (Rev. 13:1)

-         The name of blasphemy is written on each of the heads. (Rev. 13:1)

-         The Beast kingdom has the characteristics of a Leopard (swiftness, thought to characterize the Kingdom of Ancient Greece in Daniel 7:6), a Bear (symbolic of size and power, believed to represent Ancient Persia in Daniel 7:5), and a Lion (symbolic of ferocity and authority, believed to represent Ancient Babylon in Daniel 7:4). (See Rev. 13:2)

-         One head (king) will be wounded (killed) but will be temporarily resurrected and the whole world will marvel and worship the Beast. (Rev. 13:3-4, 17:8-10)

-         The Dragon (Satan) gives his power and authority to the Beast (Rev. 13:4)

-         The Beast is given power for 42 months. (Rev. 13:5)

-         The Beast will make war with the saints and overcome them (resulting in the martyrdom of many as seen in the 5th seal of Revelation 6:9-11.  (Rev. 13:7, Dan. 7:21, 25, 8:24-25)

-         All that dwell on the earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life will worship him.  (Rev. 13:8)

-         For more on this line of prophecy see Daniel 7:7-11, 8:23-25, 9:26-27, 11:36-39 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-10.


-         “Abominable branch” (Isaiah 14:19) and the “branch of the terrible ones” (Isaiah 25:5).  These in contrast to the true “Branch” or root of all life, Jesus the Messiah.  (Isaiah 11:2)

-         The “worthless shepherd” (Zechariah 11:17)

-         The “man of sin” and “son of perdition/destruction” (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

-         The “abomination of desolation”. (Matthew 24:15, Daniel 9:27 and 12:11)

-         The “little horn”. (Daniel 7:8)

-         The “powerful and ungodly king”. (Daniel 11:36)

-         The “destroyer” and the “extortioner”.  (Isaiah 16:4)

-         The “head of the house of evil”.  (Habakkuk 3:13)

It should be noted that the popular idea of the Antichrist coming to power as a man of peace seems to have little support in scripture.  Of the titles and descriptions of him and his character, violence and war seem to designate his career.  While it appears at some point during Daniel’s 70th week the Antichrist will bring some peace to Israel and the world, it will be a peace that comes through war and is solidified in the establishment of force personal worship to him as god on earth.

                                                THE MARK
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”  (Rev. 13:16-17) 

     Two things cannot be separated from our impressions of the coming anti-Christ; the mark of the Beast, and the number, 666  (Rev. 13:18).  These two things have provoked both fascination and great fear in readers for centuries.  What is clear about the mark is this; that it will be a visible etching or brand, something that can be clearly seen by others.  Many have reasoned in recent decades that the growth of nanotechnology and the reduced size of microchips would mean that the mark would be something of this nature.  While it is possible that the mark may include some advanced technology, the scripture uses the Greek word charagma, which means “imprint”, or “brand”, like what might be seen on a domesticated animal.  Those who take the mark of the Beast take his “brand”. 

     In verse 17 we see that to do any transactions, you must either have the name of the Beast, the number of his name, or the mark.  While we don’t know what the mark is yet, if one does not accept the symbol or mark that represents the Beast, the option will be available to take his name or the number of his name, 666, in a form similar to the mark. 

     It must also be said, that there is no clearer dividing line in history than between those who take the mark of the Beast and those who don’t.  Those who take the mark will live, do business, and continue for a short time.  However they will eventually be subject to the wrath of God (Rev. 14:9-11) which includes being tormented with fire and brimstone forever.  Those who reject the mark will be slain, but spend eternity with the Lord.  (Rev. 12:11, 17, 13:15)  It is likely that the mark of the Beast is a symbol that is already in use around the world today. 

     The mark has parallels in scripture.  In Ezek. 9:3-7 the Lord has an angel “mark” the foreheads of all those who “sigh” and “cry” over the evil that is done in in Jerusalem and the Temple.  Here the mark was the Hebrew letter “tau”, which looks like a cross.

Ferguson protests infiltrated by PAID rioters - Clayton, MO + West County next?

This wouldn't be the first time.  Anytime Eric Holder gets involved in an issue like this, racially motivated protests rise to unheard of levels.  He certainly inflamed the Trayvon Martin issues in Florida.  So far, the prediction here is correct.  The protests, sadly, are growing.  It seems we protest everything except the people who create the problems to begin with...


LISTEN UP. Get the word out.

I've heard this from several people now here in STL...
Rumor in St. Louis, these 'protests' are staged to cause riots... they're going to branch out across St. Louis over the next few days.
Full military lockdown by next week or sooner.

Are You Allergic to Rain?

Dr. Mercola essentially presents the establishment case here for the causes of these reactions, but it's a fairly recent phenomenon, which means something is in the air and rain now that wasn't there in the past.  The most obvious answer is chemtrails, which has to be building up in the atmosphere after so many years of use...

By Dr. Mercola
Dust mites, animal dander, molds, and pollen are among the most common environmental triggers of asthma attacks and allergy symptoms. For some, however, a spring or summer thunderstorm may lead to a flare-up of symptoms.
Research shows an association between thunderstorm activity and worsening of allergy and asthma symptoms; one study found a 3 percent increase in emergency-room visits for asthma attacks in the 24 hours following thunderstorms.1 As the researchers explained:
"While a three percent increase in risk may seem modest, asthma is quite prevalent… and a modest relative increase could have a significant public health impact in the population."

What Causes Thunderstorm Asthma?

The phenomenon, known as "thunderstorm asthma," isn't so much an issue of people being allergic to rain. Instead, thunderstorms form the "perfect storm," literally, of circumstances to increase breathing difficulties. Researchers wrote in the journal Thorax:2
"The most prominent hypotheses explaining the associations are that pollen grains rupture by osmotic shock in rainwater, releasing allergens, and that gusty winds from thunderstorm downdrafts spread particles and/or aeroallergens, which may ultimately increase the risk of asthma attacks."
In other words, pollen and mold particles that may otherwise be too big to get into your lungs (and instead tend to cause mostly nose-related symptoms) suddenly become broken up by a thunderstorm. This allows entrance into the lungs, potentially leading to an asthmatic reaction, even in some people who have never had asthma before.
It's also been suggested that storms' electrical charge makes tiny pollen and mold particles stickier, increasing the likelihood that they'll cause trouble in your lungs once inhaled.3 As written in Current Allergy and Asthma Reports:4
"The weather system of a mature thunderstorm likely entrains grass pollen into the cloud base, where pollen rupture would be enhanced, then transports the respirable-sized fragments of pollen debris to ground level where outflows distribute them ahead of the rain.
The conditions occurring at the onset of a thunderstorm might expose susceptible people to a rapid increase in concentrations of pollen allergens in the air that can readily deposit in the lower airways and initiate asthmatic reactions."
So what can you do? Pay attention to weather reports, especially if you've experienced thunderstorm asthma before. Although the condition is relatively uncommon, it's known to strike without warning, so if a thunderstorm is coming, stay indoors and close up your windows to avoid unnecessary exposure to ruptured pollen grains.

Aug 16 TEP radio: “There is no end in sight to this virus” – No end in sight to Ebola outbreak, WHO official says – USA Today

Because of the unusual transmission characteristics of this version of Ebola, it will be almost impossible to prevent spread of the fever outside of Africa.  This is looking like the worst plague the world has faced since the Spanish flu killed an estimated 50 million in 1919-20.  Check out this post from a few days ago - Two suspected Ebola patients flee hospital in Saudi Arabia – Nigerian doctor, released and said recovered from Ebola drops dead – virus may have mysterious latent triggers

and this from today - Patient checked for Ebola virus at Kaiser hospital in Sacramento

Posted by
August 2014AFRICA - (Aug 20th) – There is no end in sight to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, according to the head of the World Health Organization. “No one is talking about an early end to the outbreak,” writes Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. She says the outbreak is likely to last “many more months.” Chan blames the size and severity of the outbreak – which has killed 1,350 people – on poverty. At least 2,473 people have been diagnosed with the virus. “The hardest-hit countries – Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone – are among the poorest in the world,” Chan writes. “They have only recently emerged from years of conflict and civil war that have left their health systems largely destroyed or severely disabled and, in some areas, left a generation of children without education.” Ebola is one of a half-dozen major disease outbreaks recently caused by war or the devastation left behind by conflict, says Peter Hotez, president of the Sabin Vaccine Institute and founding dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. In Syria, for example, health workers have diagnosed 36 cases of polio since the beginning of the civil war. In Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, “there is no confidence in government or its ability to respond,” Hotez says. “This is all a consequence of public health breakdown.” In West Africa, only one or two doctors are available for every 100,000 people, Chan writes, and “even hospital capacity for infection control is virtually non-existent.” Nearly 160 health workers have been infected, and 80 have died, Chan writes.
Poverty also has driven the spread of the Ebola virus by forcing people to cross borders to find work. The intersection of these three countries is the “designated hot zone,” she writes. In Guinea, about 60% of cases are linked to burial practices, in which family members wash the bodies of the dead, Chan writes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has sent workers to West Africa to help identify cases and trace their contacts, so exposed people can be closely monitored. Lack of education has amplified fear of the disease, leading some people to flee treatment centers or hide infected family members, which allows the disease to spread, Chan writes. That’s made the greatest risk of infection come not from people diagnosed with Ebola but from “delayed detection and isolation,” CDC Director Thomas Frieden writes in an accompanying editorial.
Every day that disease transmission remains uncontrolled, the likelihood of spread to unaffected countries increases,” he writes. “If a single case is missed … another chain of transmission can start.” Rumors spread quickly, allowing some people to succumb to alleged miracle cures. Chan notes that at least two Nigerians died after drinking saltwater, which was said to protect them from Ebola. Beyond combating the outbreak, Frieden says, the United States should help “put systems in place to prevent another one.” The United States joined the WHO in launching the Global Health Security Agenda, which aims to help countries prevent outbreaks, as well as detect them and respond quickly. The plan addresses threats from new viruses, such as bird flu, as well as bioterrorism. Hospitals in the USA are far better prepared than those in West Africa to contain an Ebola infection, Hotez says. Though an infected patient could travel to the USA on a plane, Hotez says, routine infection control practices would not allow the disease to spread widely. –USA Today

ISIS are Sunni Impostors & Saudi-CIA Shills

This article is sort of "in your face", but so is ISIS.  ISIS is not an organic, natural movement of outraged Sunni's deciding to take Iraq and parts of other nations into their own hands.  They are extremely well-trained, as in Western covert intelligence well-trained.  They are marketing their actions, and they aren't being opposed (for the most part) by the Iraqi military.

ISIS pretends to lead a Sunni resurgence but in fact they are not Sunnis.
David Livingstone explains they are Salafis, a longstanding
Illuminati proxy aimed at dividing and conquering the Muslim world.

Latest - Ed Snowden documents confirm ISIS is CIA-Mossad operation

by David Livingstone
(Abridged by henrymakow. com)

An effort is being made to paint ISIS as a "Sunni" movement in order to suggest that they may have a far larger following and can ignite a major conflict.

AbuBakr.jpg(America's latest Bin Laden, after meeting with handler John McCain)

But nothing could be further from the truth. ISIS are Salafis, a manifestation of a modern phenomenon in Islam which scholars have referred to as "Revivalism." The Islamic revivalists have two important things in common: they have always been British-sponsored, and are marked by a rejection of Islamic legal tradition.

The communal effort to codify the intricacies of Islamic law is one of the great intellectual achievements of history. And by the ninth century, it was  decided that four leading schools would be recognized as representative of Sunni orthodoxy. The schools, known as a Maddhabs, differed on minor points, but were considered mutually compatible.

Therefore, Islamic law was essentially incorruptible.  From that point forward, the Doors of Ijtihad ("independent reasoning") were considered closed.

This posed a challenge to the British "Divide and Conquer" strategy of creating sects based on corruptions of the religion. Therefore they sponsored a wave of these so-called "Revivalists" who all demanded a re-opening of the Doors of Ijtihad, beginning with Mohammed Abdul Wahhab, in the mid-1700s.

Wahhab, a crypto Jew, was sponsored by another crypto-Jew, Ibn Saud, the progenitor of Saudi Arabia. He denounced the Maddhabs and called for a return to the sources, the Quran and Sunnah, undefiled by "human" opinion. He also called a "Jihad" against the Muslims, first within Arabia, and ultimately against the Ottoman Empire.

In 1932, again with British support, the Saud clan seized control of Arabia, which they proceeded to name after themselves. They also seized al Haramain, the sacred precincts of Mecca and Medina and masqueraded as defenders of Sunni Islam.

In 1933, they signed away oil concessions to the Rockefellers' Standard Oil, now Exxon Mobil, the world's third largest company by revenue, and the second largest publicly traded company by market cap.
90% of Saudi revenues from from oil, largely managed by the Rockefellers' Exxon Mobil.

The extraordinary Saudi wealth was a key factor in their support for the spread of Wahhabism, as well as the related Salafi movement, which have since essentially become one.

jamaluddin.jpgSalafism began in the eighteenth century, headed by a notorious imposter and British agent by the name of Jamal ud Din al Afghani. Afghani was not only the Grand Master of the Freemasons of Egypt, but also a pivotal figure in the  European Occult Revival, which included  H. P. Blavatsky and Aleister Crowley. Afghani was also an original source of the Masonic teachings of the wayward Nation of Islam in the US.

Afghani's British handler, Wilfred Scawen Blunt, was the first to propose the establishment of a British controlled "Caliphate" (leader of the entire Muslim community) to replace the Ottoman Empire. The idea of a neo-caliphate was later actively pursued by T. E. Lawrence, aka "Lawrence of Arabia," who managed the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire on behalf of the Illuminati Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA), the sister organization of the Rockefellers' CFR.


The ISIS' handlers (Mossad, CIA, MI5 or all of the above) have learned a lot over the years. They made a mistake in choosing bin Laden who was an engineer by education and profession, and therefore failed to convince the Islamic world of his qualifications as a Jihad leader.

BvXYXTMCQAAJslC.jpgBut now the situation seems to be more timely for ISI's hidden manipulators. ISIS' leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has now dared to declare himself "Caliph" of the world's Muslims, earned a master's degree and a PhD in Islamic studies from the Islamic University of Baghdad.

The re-establishment of a Caliph over the world of Islam is the universal aspiration of the Muslims. Every Muslim despairs at the ravages of Western Imperialism, as well as its blind sponsorship of rapacious Zionism. But this makes them vulnerable to deception by their enemies, who dare to prop up false oppositions, or Pied Pipers like al Baghdadi.

But they've made one colossal mistake: they have mistakenly claimed that ISIS is a "Sunni organization."

Since the absence of true Sunni authority, the Saudis have funded their aberrant interpretations, and fooled the world into believing that Wahhabism and Salafism are merely reform trends within Sunnism.

For the most part, many Muslims are duped. They are prone to extremism and lapses mistakenly identified as "Shariah" because they have been estranged from their true Islamic legal tradition found in the Maddhabs. But once they recognize that truth, they will reject imposters like ISIS and rediscover their true heritage, which made them an incorruptible and an indomitable force in the past.

Gerard Groot's Death by Association

Gerard Groot's Death by Association
When he died on this day, August 20, 1384, Gerard Groote left behind him a band of followers dedicated to reforming the church, spreading the gospel in all Christendom and putting the scriptures into the hands and minds of the common people. Not surprisingly, Groote had even begun translating the Bible. He died before he got far on the task. He death, like his life, was devoted to the body of Christ. Despite personal risk, he visited one of his beloved followers who had been infected by the plague and was cut down himself aged 44. He had labored only ten years for Christ.

Groote was born in 1340. Not until 1374 was he converted. Until then he had lived a life of luxury, for his parents were well-to-do. Immediately he dedicated his life to Christ. Now he gave up almost everything he owned. He would be poor like Christ. Indeed, his entire mission would be Christ-centered and aim at taking men deeper in the knowledge of Jesus. After two years as a guest in a Carthusian monastery, Groote became a deacon and obtained permission to preach. He worked his way through the lowlands -- Flanders, Guelders and Holland--as a traveling preacher, teaching the word of God and decrying the abuses prevalent in the church.

So severe were Groote's attacks on current errors that his authorization to preach was yanked. He was in some danger of further penalties, but the plague carried him off before any action could transpire. Eventually opposition to the lay Brethren caused them to become Augustinian monks.

From the start, Groote, gathered men around him to copy scriptures and religious texts. From the revenues they earned doing this, they supported themselves and helped the poor. They did not beg for alms. The band became known as the Brethren of Common Life. Eighteen houses of these brethren had formed before Groote died. Groote also gathered a group of women called the Sisters of Common Life. These groups did not take monastic vows. Nor were they bound to remain celibate. Any could leave the group at any time. Their aim was to live the life of Christ while engaged in toil. This way of life became known as Devotio Moderna (the modern way of serving God). These brethren became deeply interested in education and used their residences as schools in larger cities. They produced some famous pupils.

Among those trained by the Brothers of the Common Life were many men whose names live on. Nicholas Cusa wrote works of considerable influence among the scientists and churchmen of his day and rose to a cardinalate. Thomas á Kempis wrote or collated the devotional classic The Imitation of Christ as well as the lives of Groote and some other early leaders of the New Devotion. He, too, was Christ-centered. "If a man knows what it is to love Jesus, and to disregard himself for the sake of Jesus, then he is really blessed." Decades later, another pupil, Erasmus, became the greatest scholar of his age and an agent of reform. With Groote's death, his influence did not die.

The water has turned blood red in Florida as a massive "Red Tide" approaches the coast and tens of thousands of fish have died also also

Forbidden Secrets of the Labyrinth - Part 9 - Mark Flynn

The Awakened Ones, The Hidden Destiny Of America, And The Day After Tomorrow
By Mark A. Flynn

PART 9 - The Secret of the Labyrinth


EDITORS NOTE: We now leap forward in this study by Mark Flynn for one last tantalizing entry, based on the upcoming book "Forbidden Secrets of the Labyrinth"

The man whose name was the same as the one who caused the downfall of Troy, Alexander the Great, in a symbolic act of Athenian retribution, went to Troy and sacrificed to the legendary hero, Achilles. He owed his power to the success of his warrior ancestors and their taking of the Palladium, which now resided in the Erechtheum at the Greek Acropolis.
Like his ancestors who had fought at Troy, Alexander would fight on the side of his patron goddess, the goddess who bestowed knowledge and protection to their whole civilization. Alexander the Great, under the aegis of Athena, went on to become the most powerful warrior-ruler the ancient world had ever known. After him, Mithridates, also known as Antioch Epiphanes under the same power, brought the gods of Greece to the very center of the city of God, profaning His Temple.
Both Alexander the Great and Antioch Epiphanes are images of a future type who will ultimately manifest under the Palladium of Athena in our time, from the world power whose base lies at Washington, DC.

The Palladium and the Powers of the Earth

The nature of the Palladium was that throughout ancient history it remained with each powerful nation, but was transferred when another, more dominant nation, took its place. The works of the ancient historians who mention it confirm this. 
After the destruction of Troy, the Palladium was transferred to Greece and remained in the Erechtheum at the Acropolis for approximately eight hundred years. Somewhere within a period of fifty years after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the formation of the Roman republic, it was moved to the Temple of Vesta in the Roman Forum. Pliny the Elder mentioned it while describing the Roman dictator Lucius Caecilius Metellus (290–221 BC), who had been blinded when he rescued the Palladium from the temple sometime in 241 BC. 
Metellus passed his old age, deprived of his sight, which he had lost in a fire, while rescuing the Palladium from the temple of Vesta; a glorious action, no doubt, although the result was unhappy: on which account it is, that although he ought not to be called unfortunate, still he cannot be called fortunate. The Roman people, however, granted him a privilege which no one else had ever obtained since the foundation of the city, that of being conveyed to the senate- house in a chariot whenever he went to the senate: a great distinction, no doubt, but bought at the price of his sight.[ii]
The Romans regarded the Palladium as one of their pignora imperii, meaning “pledges of rule,” which guaranteed the republic’s continued imperium, the power and command of the empire. Later, the emperor Elagabalus transferred the most sacred Roman relics, including the Palladium, from their respective shrines to his new temple, the Elagabalium:
As soon as he entered the city, however, neglecting all the affairs of the provinces, he established Elagabalus as a god on the Palatine Hill close to the imperial palace; and he built him a temple, to which he desired to transfer the emblem of the Great Mother, the fire of Vesta, the Palladium, the shields of the Salii, and all that the Romans held sacred, purposing that no god might be worshipped at Rome save only Elagabalus.[iii]
There is evidence the Palladium was transferred from Rome to Constantinople in AD 330 by Constantine the Great and buried under the Column of Apollo-Constantine at his Forum.[iv]
At this point in history, the Palladium location references stop. Yet the Palladium exists today as it has always been located at the heart of each respective world power and discerning its location... 
After the fall of the Western Roman empire from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, the Catholic Church was the central power of all Europe. After the decline of Constantinople, the power of the Church moved back to Italy and was located at the Holy See (Latin: sancta, “holy,” sedes, “seat”) in Rome, known today as the Vatican. It is most likely that the Palladium was taken to Rome some time before AD 1150, when part of the Forum complex was destroyed by a powerful storm. 
The word “Vatican” comes from the Roman god Vaticanus, the god of wailing or weeping. It is not well known that the name is a combination of the Latin vātī, meaning a “foreteller, seer, soothsayer, prophet,” and cānus, which means “to shine or be white, hoary.”[vi]
The next great world power was the British, whose empire began its rise to a world colonial supremacy at the time of King Henry VIII of the House of Tudor after breaking ties with the Roman Catholic Church in 1534. The Palladium would have been transferred either to England and kept at the Palace of Placentia or to Westminster Abbey after Henry assumed direct royal control there in 1539. Herodotus writes that the Persian King Xerxes (519–465 BC) was the first to use the phrase that described the British Empire: “the empire on which the sun never sets”: “We shall extend the Persian territory as far as God's heaven reaches. The sun will then shine on no land beyond our borders; for I will pass through Europe from one end to the other” (emphasis added).[vii] 
It is possible that the Palladium never left the control of the Catholic Church from the time of its removal from Constantinople until the later part of the nineteenth century. There is evidence during that time [it was under] the protection of the Templar Knights after the First Crusade until King Philip IV ended their order in 1307.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

The United States

While much has been written concerning the causes of the Civil War, it cannot be disputed that a major component of the conflict was over who controlled the commerce of the nation. The Civil War was fought over the rights of individual states to maintain their sovereignty over the power of the federal government. In 1860, there was no income tax, and the federal government received most of its revenue through various import tariffs paid by the South, which it used to support commercial and manufacturing industries in the North. The North had a greater representation in Congress and left the South without any control of where the money was spent.
