In our quest to expose the religion of Mystery Babylon, we need to go back to the beginning when the Serpent (Satan) first introduced mankind to his world view. It was in Eden, that pristine garden of God where Satan planted his evil seeds of pride and rebellion in the hearts of our ancestors. As we will see, it was those seeds which gave rise to the sin which has plagued mankind for the past 6000 years of Biblical history.

In keeping with our investigation into the influence Daniel 9 has had on the eschatological beliefs of popular Christian prophecy teachers, today we will look at how the 70 Weeks prophecy is incorporated into Mr. Shoebat and Mr. Richardson’s eschatological world view.
