Dr. Edmund Roache, Author, "The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand" reports on current political and economic events outlined in his book

"The stage is set to set the Middle East aflame and draw the whole world into World War III. The script is being followed. Watch the details closely. For instance, why does Israel declare war on Lebanon one day and then the next day give away the West Bank and Gaza for nothing in return. None of it makes any sense unless you posit that there is an alternative goal other than what we are all being led to believe."
"Another example is the way we have leaked our military technology on purpose to Chinese "spies" so that they can build up their military and some day use it against us. We do the same with Russia as we turn our backs while they build their arsenal despite knowing that they are cheating on all the armament reduction treaties that we unilaterally continue to disarm ourselves by."
"The American media are controlled by six men -- six!!! We are told what they want us to know -- no more, no less. For example, Ron Paul is of the caliber of an Abraham Lincoln and he is continually ignored despite a lot of support from people who really know what is going on. Also the dollar is circling the drain and everything will get a lot worse economically and financially once it breaks 80, which I think it will do over the next several months. Is the media reporting on the real economic news to help prepare us? Indeed no!"
"Do not be deceived. The American people have been intentionally dumbed down so that many don't even know how to think for themselves and the younger the generation the more clueless we have become."
"Many critical issues that will impact every espect of our lives in the months and years ahead are on the table with little national discussion. For example the seriousness of the drought and a financial crisis that is imminent that could create a depression in the new few years, if not sooner."
"American is ripe for the kill but maybe we can still put up a good fight. As for the Kingdom Book, I fully expect the day to come when it will see it's full use"

Dr. Roache's analysis of current world events fit with my own. Reading a review of his book, I understand, through comparative prophecy, he writes about how world events will play out. His research is excellent!
I am interested in Roache's interpretation of misleaders. I do plan to buy the book but would like more info from the blog. Thanks, Judith Helmes, Wisconsin

I'm interested in more information on Dr. Roache's research. I understand his book is based on comparative prophecy relevant to today's world. JM, Ohio

I see the world changing in front of me on a daily basis. I am pushed to change within myself. So glad I found this blog. Maryanne Jones, Miami

I've read Dr. Roache's book and found it quite amazing. I had never thought about comparative prophecy as it relates to the times we're living in. One reason I wanted to read the book is that he researches the Old Testament prophets and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
My take on it is that if we're getting the same information from no only OT and Scrolls but a number of other books including Enoch, something is going on here.
In any event, I take this work seriously. Would recommend it! John Sims, CA

I have been awaiting new posts on this blog and am thrilled to hear some new insights from Dr. Roache. Thanks for posting them.

Millie Kazan said...

I believe I read heard about this book a few years ago. Or maybe I heard about the manuscript floating around. I remember it because of the similarities between Old Testament prophecy and the Urantia book which Dr. Roache writes about.
I am interested in learning more about the book and Dr. Roache.
Thank you,Millie Kazan

Hi Millie: To respond to your interest in learning more about Dr. Roache, he is a scientist and medical doctor in upstate New York.
He has studied comparative prophecy for many years and came to understand that reverence for the source of prophecy (true prophecy)is the key to its study and for understanding the current world crisis.
Dr. Roache says "For it is the indwelling spirit that will lead seekers to reason and faith, which are necessary for the complete appreciation of prophecy, just as they are for the full appreciation of all other phenomena."
Thank you Millie, IN OUR OWN WAY

I picked up information on Dr. Roache and his book on Google.
Interesting work since I know next to nothing about prophecy. Never read the Dead Sea Scholls or Enoch. What peeked my interest is that the Old Testament. DSC and Enoch are in agreement. How ancient prophecy fits into today's world is the reason I am purchasing the book. Thank you very much. Johnathan Webb, DC

For those interested in Old Testament prophecy there is a world of information on google. One of particular interest is Daniel 2. You can watch the videoplay presentations. Well worth the time.

The more I read about comparative prophecy the more I believe we have missed a critical missing link in understanding the current world crisis.
There also is something to comparing Old Testament prophecy to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Enoch. Interesting! They seem to be in harmony. This is newsworthy indeed.
What is even more interesting is that we're hearing more about prophecy (true prophecy) these days from scholars around the world. I hope to see more dialogue about this important issue for those of us striving to understand the world in which we live and our place in it. Andy Jackson, Asheville, NC

The Parable of the Tenants
"He(Jesus)then began to speak to them in parables: "A man planted a vineyard. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. But they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on the head and treated him shamefully. He sent still another, and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat, others they killed. "He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, 'They will respect my son.' "But the tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. "What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others. Then they looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away."
The above quote is from Mark 12 the NIV Bible.
"As in ancient Israel, the "leaders are misleaders," who lead so many so far astray. God expects leaders to be the shepherds of His children. What will happen when judgment comes to the nations and their leaders. The answer is the same as the one given by Jesus, when he concluded the parable of the absent landlord (UB) and asked, "what will the lord of the vineyard do to those ungrateful and wicked tenants (in our example shepherds)?" The present world is based on the principal Might makes Right. In the world of Melchizedek, King of Righteousness, the world will be based on Right makes Might.
The prophets have asked God for thousands of years over and over; "How long Lord? How long?" meaning how long will the strong trample the weak? How long will the arrogant govern the meek? God’s answer is that everything has a season to grow and yield its full fruit; we then reap what we sow. The sun is made to shine on the good and the evil. Remember the parable when the good man sows good seed, but while he is sleeping, an evil one sows weeds in the same field. And, when the weeds grow up with the good crop, the parable tells us that both good and bad will be allowed to reach harvest together. Then the field will be harvested and the good crop stored away and the weeds bound up and thrown into the fire. This is done because pulling the weeds up early would damage the good as well as the bad. The end of an age is a harvest time when everything is harvested and accounted for. The prophecy, "The meek shall inherit the earth" will finally become reality. Also, remember Jesus’ parable about the good landowner of the vineyard. The landowner leaves his beautiful vineyard in the hands of workmen who ransack his property and ruin his vineyard. The landowner sends his best servants, and then even his very own son to check on its progress. The son they kill, so as to deprive him of his inheritance, and Jesus then looks to the listening audience and asks, "What do you think the landowner will do?" In unison they answer, "he will destroy those men…" (UB).
This story is not only a parable. It is also a prophecy of Jesus’ (the son in the parable) subsequent death at the hands of the leaders of Jerusalem who are playing the role of the workmen left in charge. Israel is the vineyard and God is the landowner who sends his son Jesus to set right the spiritual affairs of Israel. But Jesus is killed by the very ones causing the trouble in the first place, the workmen left in charge, i.e. the leaders of Israel.
But wait! The parable prophecy hasn’t ended yet because God has not yet sent anyone to bring justice to the vineyard workers, i.e. the leaders. The parable will end, when God’s Agent of Justice arrives and sets the affairs of His "vineyard" aright, just as at the ending of the parable. This is exactly the function of the "Messiah" described in Old Testament prophecy. Not only was Jesus aware of his upcoming death, but he also was aware that the complete story would someday end like his parable ended. The word messiah is used several times in 1Enoch in association with a divine being who brings peace and victory to those who "elect" God’s will during the end of the Age. This Messiah figure in 1Enoch is called the Elect One, the Concealed One, the Mighty One, and God of the World. The word messiah means anointed in spirit, and when capitalized, Messiah means the Anointed One over all other anointed ones. The word "Christ" simply is the Greek translation of the word "Messiah." Essentially, we have named Jesus "Christ" for precisely what he is not, i.e. "Messiah." When Jesus came, people were looking for the World Messiah and mostly missed recognizing the Spiritual Savior. This time around Christians are looking for the Spiritual Savior and alas –the World Messiah comes. Humanity gets it wrong both times. No one can say that we’re not consistent." Page 106

Thanks Sharon. We're beginning to learn more about the prophets and to respect them. I'm impressed with the number of scholars now discussing the power of true prophecy. There also are "prophecy" sites on the internet generating interest. Dr. Roache's book look very interesting. Jonathan Beck, Minn.

Looks like this WWIII business is close to reality. What a damn mess we're in. I've never heard of this book! When was it published?
