HAMAS in prophecy
When questioned about his return, and the end times, or the “last days,” Jesus gave a very interesting, prophetic utterance to those who were sharp enough to get it. He stated that the sign of the times would be like the days of Noah. He was immediately referring them to Genesis 6: 1-13, describing the condition of mankind before the flood.
These are the key points in these 13 verses.
1. Mixing of the seed of the serpent with the seed of man, which has come to a critical number, so that the seed of the serpent needs to be destroyed. ( see post- The seed of the Serpent). Click here for more
This would mean there would be a large number or a multitude of people whose physical seed had been contaminated with the seed of the serpent.
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.
2. Violence and corruption covered the earth- we call this terrorism and false witness/slander now
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Gen 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Here, I intentionally left in the link to the original Bible verse. Once you get to the original verse, if you will click on the “C” for concordance, you will get the original Hebrew. Look at the original Hebrew for “violence.” The Hebrew word (CHAMAS) is pronounced HAMAS. Hamas means violence and false witness.
so these verses could be also written:
Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with HAMAS.
Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with HAMAS through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Jesus was actually revealing the name of the terrorist group that would be in operation in Israel, which would prompt God to destroy them for their corruption. Remember, Jesus was speaking in Hebrew, not English, to his followers. Jesus knew He was revealing the name of the group who would oppose Israel, and bring in the time of Jacob’s trouble.
HAMAS is a terrorist group that spreads false witness against the Jews in Israel, as well as the Christians around the world. It uses the media well to promote negative propaganda to accomplish its goals.
Wickedness – the Hebrew word is rah, evil, hurtful, vicious
Corrupt – the Hebrew word is shachat, which literally means to slaughter or destroy, ruin, spoil, rotted. Here it says the flesh is ruined. It seems to be referring to a condition (due to corrupt seed?) in the physical body.
3. Noah was NOT contaminated either physically or spiritually – in body or in character/behavior, as others were.
Gen 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:9 These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.
Here Noah is described as both just and perfect.
just = tsadeck – lawful, righteous
perfect in his generations = tamiym – wholesome, sound, healthy, complete, innocent
the “just” is describing his behavior, the “perfect” is describing his physical condition.
The others of his day were contaminated with the seed of the serpent, and manifested violence and wickedness. Noah was not contaminated in his seed, and was just and pure.
So there is some connection between biology and behavior here.
4. Conclusion: those that were identified as HAMAS were those that were progeny of the seed of the serpent.
This means those who call themselves Palestinians, today, are being led by the seed of the serpent, HAMAS.
Since it is almost time for the Jewish Messiah to show up in Israel, it only makes sense that the seed of the adversary, Satan, shows up too, to oppose the Messiah’s arrival.
5. Comparing the past with the future
In 37 BC, about 30 years before the birth of Jesus, Herod came to power. At that time, Herod represented, at least symbolically, the seed of the serpent, since He commanded that all boy babies be killed in order to kill the Messiah child. He ruled for 34 years.
***Approximately 5BC, he ordered the slaughtering (shachat) of the innocents. Jesus would have been about 19 months old by then, born in about 7 BC. So about 30 years prior to the arrival (birth) of the Messiah, Herod came into power.
Hamas was founded in 1987, and came into full power in 2006, when it defeated the Fatah party of Arafat. So HAMAS has been in power about 21 years now. This is just interesting speculation, but if HAMAS parallels the pattern set by Herod, this would “predict” that the Messiah’s arrival would be in about 9 years from now. That would be 2017-18.
6. Other data that agrees with this HAMAS prophecy:
The solar cycle will peak in about 2011-2012, which could start the tribulation. which is about 7 years before the 2017-2018 date. (see post on this) Click here for more
4 blood moons are predicted to occur in 2014-2015, which might be the sign before the great and terrible day of the Lord the last 3.5 years of the tribulation. This also coincides with an end in 2017-2018. (see post on this.) Click here for more
