Which are the circumstances which show that the times of the end have begun? Read more:
Today on the 18th of January 2010 I once again thought about how one will be able to recognize the beginning of the end times and I therefore once again read the prophecy of Bertha Dudde of 23rd November 1948, B.D. NR. 4493, and did this in chapter 1. Struggle Between Nations in the book Redemption Period, which is contained here on this website. And I again noticed the strange wording, "When information reaches you about the passing away of an earthly ruler then you have arrived at that point in time that you can call the beginning of the end." The peculiarity is the first part of the sentence. Therefore it is not the time of the passing away of the ruler the decisive time but it is the time when the information about it reaches us. When the information reaches us, then is the beginning of the end. From my point of view one can deduct from this that a difference exists there between the passing away of the ruler, and the announcing of it, and especially of course between these two points in time. The passing away in itself will not have these effects which are described in this prophecy but the announcing of the passing away. The announcing of the passing away, or more exactly, the point in time when this information reaches us, will be the incisive point in time. When a person well known in public dies inevitably nearly always a time wise difference arises between the point in time of the death of this person and the point in time of the announcement of this event, and then of course also still of the point in time when we hear about this announcement - when it reaches us. On 22nd of November 1963 the then American president was shot, and the difference between the point in time of the act and the taking place of the death and the reaching of the announcement of these events was relatively short, despite the fact that the means of communication were not that fast as they are today. For many people on earth everything happened on the same day. The other day I read something about how on 12th April 1945 the then incumbent American president died, about what happened before that, about what happened after that, how the event was then announced, it was an event which was quite unexpected, and how his successor took over his office. Such an announcement is of course very important news and the people responsible for it will well think about the wording, especially when one considers that the deceased was the leader of the most important world power and was at war with two extremely aggressive powers. Alone the possible reaction of these powers was probably not insignificant in the mind of the people wording this announcement. And there also was probably a tremendous time pressure because one surely did want to have the country unnecessarily without a leader and will probably have combined the announcement of the death with an announcement of who will be the successor and when he will be it. On top of this comes the fact that exactly that person, who normally makes the final decision when a news is released, was just no longer there, and now the job fell to someone who perhaps was not used to take such responsibility. All this happened within the framework of a relatively well functioning form of administration which was based on a form of government which was well designed. In such a situation the possibility of a power struggle for the succession or a putsch or a coup d'état can of course not be ruled out, also not when such a country has a constitutional form of government. The death of the head of state is therefore alone already a highly political matter and those people who then have to suddenly make the decisions, for example the decision, when and how this event is communicated to the public, and with it also to the allies and to the enemies of the country, carry then a quite considerable responsibility. On the 12th of April 1945 all this seemed to have taken its course according to the rules. But the circumstances in such a case can also be such that the announcement, and especially the point in time of the announcement, is associated with difficulties, exactly because one is conscious of the fact that this announcement will trigger off considerable problems and reactions. But there still can exist many other problems as for example the succession. What will for example happen when already the circumstances of death are a great problem, for example with a murder or an intervention of a hostile power? Would one admit to such a power to have achieved a decisive victory - to have eliminated the enemy head of state? This alone could be a reason to considerably delay the announcing of the death, or to even try to not make it public at all. Or one is conscious that the announcement of the death and the circumstances how it happened will trigger off a worldwide crisis situation because a becoming known will be the beginning of a conflict, which concerns two or more worldwide represented and hostile organisations or religions or ideological movements, and that these now start to tear each other apart and that now everywhere on earth men no longer feel save. So a situation can arise that a ruler dies and the public knows nothing about it and hears about it only after a considerable time later, and the point in time of death is relatively unimportant and only when men receive knowledge about it has the point in time come which determines the beginning of the end.
