IS FIDEL CASTRO PROPHESYING?
Usually you associate those who say the end is near with an old man with a sign on a stick parading in a downtown setting with a joke being uttered at his dementia.
Well does of us dedicated to the study and proclamation of the prophesies of the Bible tend to have empathy with this type of individual. We can see ourselves at one point or other receiving the ridicule and scorn from those who reject the prophetic Word of God.
It is with surprise that I see such an evil man as Fidel who has enslaved the people of Cuba and killed countless numbers of people warning the world and the USA of the perils of a nuclear war that will engulf the whole world.
In today’s Miami Herald there is an article by Juan O. Tamayo titled After 4 years, Fidel returns to assembly which is a commentary of the speech Fidel gave to a special session of parliament.
What are the motives that made Fidel convene the assembly and give this type of warning and appeal to Obama to avert a nuclear holocaust? Is he crazy or suffers from all the deceases that eventually affect all of us in old age? Or is this a serious prophetic utterance from a very informed individual, who is privy to privileged information from his secret service, and whose government is aligned with the very same countries that are provoking this coming apocalypse.
His is a self preservation instinct that has kept him in power longer than any dictator in the world for over 50 years. He well knows that if the USA is threatened with a nuclear confrontation his regime is the most immediate and closest threat to the security of our Nation.
As such it would be the first place to be engaged by the armed forces of the USA and his survival and the revolution he most cherishes will be wiped out like a bothersome pest that he has been for many years.
Before we continue please take a moment and read the article below or at least the last six paragraphs. It is true that if Obama attacks Iran the consequences will be those that are address by Fidel. For the knowledgeable of bible prophecy this could be the war of Ezekiel
Chapters 38-39 or Psalm 83 or the second Seal of Revelation the red horse.
Castro went on to say (see the third paragraph from the end) what is prophesied in the four Seals also known as the four horses of the apocalypse where one fourth of the earth population will perish.
Tamayo in the article alludes to Fidel being wrong or making a couple of blunders which in my opinion they are both very close to the truth. In the first by referring to Russia as the USSR he definitively is not completely off due to the fact that in the prophecy of Ezekiel he is the leader of the nations that go against Israel and all of these nations and many more were part of the USSR. Castro went on to say that the big bang that formed the universe occurred 18,000 years ago, and Tamayo thinks as most evolutionist that it occurred billions of years ago. We the people of the book (Bible) believe that creation was started by God about 6,000 years ago. Castro’s date is closer to our beliefs but his is 6,000 + 6,000 + 6,000.
By appealing to Obama he further proves to me that Obama is the Antichrist that will rule the world during the seven years of Tribulation. He is showing that he considers Obama as one of his kind, ideology, values etc. It would be hard for me to see him doing this if it was Bush or Reagan in power.
Fidel is not crazy or demented but very astute and doing what he has done for the past 50 years, seeking the limelight with something that is apparent to many of us, but that he is using to appear a statement full of knowledge and caring for the people of the world.
In retrospect I am reminded of Balam’s ass that God permitted to talk to Balam to tell him there was an angel with a flaming sword ready to cut him down if he kept in his path. In a way God is warning us that if we do not side with Israel and with Jesus a flaming sword is ready to cut us down.
After 4 years, Fidel returns to assembly
Fidel Castro makes another public appearance, this time participating in his first official government act in four years.
By JUAN O. TAMAYO
Cuba’s Fidel Castro took part in his first government function since he nearly died in 2006, repeating his apocalyptic warnings of a nuclear war that only President Barack Obama can avert as he spoke Saturday to a special session of parliament.
Castro, who will turn 84 on Friday, appeared lucid and healthy during his 90-minute appearance before the National Assembly of People’s Power, though an aide helped him walk around the stage.
It was the first time he participated in an official government act in four years and the latest in a string of recent public appearances that have fueled reports he wants to return to his leadership position.
Castro largely avoided the limelight after emergency intestinal surgery left him at death’s door in 2006. His younger brother Raúl formally succeeded him as Cuba’s leader in 2008.
Assembly members burst into applause when he walked in, said he looked “as big as ever” and called him comandante en jefe instead of his more recent and plain title of compañero. One sent him “kisses, comandante.”
Wearing a military-styled olive green jacket, Castro sat on the stage among the Assembly’s leadership but not on the chair that he used when he led the country, which has been left empty since 2006.
Raúl Castro, wearing a white guayabera, sat on the opposite side of the stage and did not speak during the session, held solely to hear his brother. The live TV broadcast did not show the brothers interacting at any point.
“It was clearly a command performance, and nothing about it will enhance Raúl’s legitimacy as Cuba’s president,” said Brian Latell, a former Cuba analyst at the CIA.
`MORE IN CONTROL’
“Does it all mean that Fidel is now more in control than in the past four year? I think so,” said Andy Gomez, senior fellow at the University of Miami’s Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies.
“But it’s difficult to take him seriously,” added Miami radio commentator Ninoska Perez. “He talks about the risks of nuclear war, and his 50 years in power have been as catastrophic as a nuclear war.”
As in all his recent appearances, Castro did not mention Cuba’s economic crisis or his brother’s efforts to ease it by adopting some reforms — a silence interpreted by analysts as reflecting the older brother’s steadfast adherence to the communist ideology.
Castro stood at the podium and read from a prepared text on the threat of nuclear war over Iran and North Korea for 11 minutes, then took questions writen by lawmakers who were selected by Assembly President Ricardo Alarcón.
He appeared to tire toward the end of the special Assembly session, held at this request though officially he does not have the authority to order it, and Alarcón quickly brought it to an end.
Underlining the importance of his appearance, Castro noted that CNN was to broadcast the first half-hour live, and estimated its cost in advertising revenues at $100 million.
Cuban officials invited foreign diplomats and journalists to the session, and announced that the live TV signal would be available free of charge to foreign stations.
Castro made a couple of blunders during the question and answer
period, referring to Russia as “the Soviets” and `USSR” and saying that
the Big Bang that formed the universe occurred 18,000 years ago.

But he seemed clear-minded as he urged Assembly members to consider the risks of nuclear war.
The lawmakers’ questions stuck to the script.
None asked about domestic issues.
“What kind of parliament is this? It has no inconvenient questions, does not question, does not demand change. It only applauds, flatters, agrees,” popular blogger Yoani Sánchez wrote in a Tweet.
Castro noted that after months of warning of the risks of nuclear war if the United States tries to inspect Iranian ships beginning in September, as part of U.N. sanctions, he’s now less pesimistic.
“At first I thought that the imminent danger of war had no solution possible,” he said.
“I am sure, however, that it will not happen that way and that, on the contrary, the conditions for a solution . . . are being created at this time.”
“One man alone will have to make the decision: The president of the United States,” Castro said, because Iran will not bow to U.S. and Israeli demands to halt its nuclear program.
If Obama approves an attack on Iran, he added, he will trigger a war that will spread through the Middle East and Asia and cause “the instantaneous death of hundreds of millions of people, among them an incalculable number of people in his own country.”
The “established order of the planet . . . will inevitably collapse, the reigning social order will disappear abruptly” and all currencies will be worthless, he added.
Castro noted that “as luck would have it,” Obama’s father was Muslim and his mother was Christian and added he hoped the U.S. president will become conscious of the threat to world peace.
In comparison, he called Richard Nixon a “cynic,” branded Ronald
Reagan and Harry Truman as “ignorant” and called Jimmy Carter “a decent
