Hello, my name is Bob Fruehling.
I am excited to have the opportunity to share my views on an urgent subject, "The Revelation" and some excerpts from my most recent book.
I have been a pastor in both the Church of the Nazarene, and the United Methodist Church. Today. am posting, as a contributor to the
The Whitestone FellowshipRev2:17 and it is my desire to sound a warning.
Speculation abounds concerning the person known as the Antichrist. During this time of Covid-19 there are calls from different voices for a “New Word Order” or some such. Guesses continue as to who this person could be to lead this world government. We are told that he has to be revealed and that has not happened - yet.
So what should we look for? Under what flag or motif will the Antichrist be presented?
In my book “The Revelation of King Arthur: Deceit, Intrigue, and the Guards’ Account”, I present seven markers from the Book of Revelation in the Bible. They are as follows:
1. “An enormous red dragon” Revelation 12:3. It refers to the Flag of Wales. This is the reported birth place of King Arthur and Merlin.
2.”A beast coming out of the sea” Revelation 13:1. This is referring to the Merovingian line of French kings. Arthur is written into this line.
3. “The dragon gave the beast his power” Revelation 13:2. This is referring to the motto on the Flag of Wales in Gaelic.
4. “One of the heads of the beast has a seeming fatal wound” Revelation 13; 3, 12, and 14. The myth of Arthur’s seeming death.
5. “The woman…held a golden cup in her hand” Revelation 17:4. This is pure Grail imagery. The woman (the Roman Catholic Church) has knowledge of Arthur’s genealogy.
6. “He once was now is not, and yet will come” Revelation 17:4. This verse refers to the “Once and Future King” legend concerning Arthur’s return to rule.
7. “The seven heads…are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king” Revelation: 17: 9-11.
I speak more on this in the book. but the thumbnail is this: John is being shown the kings from his time. From Augustus to Nero - “five have fallen”; Domitian was the “kIng” at John’s time “one is"; “the other (king) has not yet come”. I believe a good candidate for this king is King Arthur. Notice then that this king disappears from history, only to reappear as an eighth king with the handle “who once was, and now is not”. Again was see the idea of a “once and future king”.
This list may be tedious but I believe only one person of history/myth clicks all the prophetic boxes. I also believe the verses, when put together, can only refer to King Arthur, “The Once and Future King”. I believe that this person, whoever they are, will be presented as this legendary “Christian” king. As Jesus said “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect." I am hoping I, at least, to have given food for thought.
We are closing in on the time of The Revelation
More to come...
