Berlin’s Pergamon Museum closes for 5 years

This is interesting. The Altar of Zeus alternately known as the Pergamon Altar built between 197 and 156 B.C. formerly in Pergamon, Asia Minor, (today Bergama, Turkey) is now housed in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum. This is also the same altar that Jesus referred to as, “the Throne of Satan” in Revelation 2:13

‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. (Revelation 2:13)

It was also this same altar that Hitler’s architect Albert Speer used as the model for the Zeppelintribune Field used by Hitler to make his most grand speeches to the Nazis.

According to ABC News, the Museum will be closed to all visitors for five years for the purpose of restoration work on the museum building that houses it.

The authority that runs Berlin’s public museums said Tuesday the central hall that contains the altar will close Sept. 29, and likely won’t reopen until 2019.

Throne of Satan, Berlin

As an aside, while many saw it as a deeply ominous sign, I personally found it more humorous that when President Obama made his initial acceptance speech in 2008 for the DNC presidential nomination, it was in a nearly perfect replica of what Jesus referred to as “the throne of Satan.”

Needless to say many leftist bloggers and news outlets went crazy when I pointed this out.

    As I recall, Turkey has been pushing Western nations in possession of their artifacts to return them for many years now. Will be interesting to see if there is any more to the story.

    What’s the reason why the altar section is closed? Five years is a very long time for maintenance

    Joel, thank you for posting this. Anytime Yeshua refers to something in his direct words in scripture I pay very close attention.

    Obviously we cannot know what if anything is future for this artifact but the closing of the museum for 5 years is very strange. You could build 3 museums in that time. Might this artifact be transfered back to Turkey and be used by the AC in some manner? The fact that Hitler and Obama have both chosen similar looking structures just adds to the mystery. This museum and the artifact are now on my radar.

    I remember reading about Bergama starting to rebuild the seat of zeus back in 2008. wander what happened with that. I thought I had saved the news article but can’t seem to find it. that would be quiet interesting giving where we are in history with prophecy being fulfilled in our time. Is turkey going to get satans seat back? Is his seat and authority still there? just a thought.

    Interesting about the alter, but how do you know that Jesus was referring to that specific temple in Pergamos? Is sounds to me that he is referring to the city in general.

    Pastor Nick shared the following article concerning Turkey’s efforts to get the Altar back.

    Richard,

    The Altar of Pergamon was the most well known and central feature of the city at the time. Most scholars simply assume that Jesus was referring to this altar rather that the actual city per se.

    ‘restoration’ or secretly ‘in use’, LOL

    Reading this reminded me of the fact that Germany (at least the Western Länder) is home to a great many Turks (Gastarbeiter who moved there after the second world war). Maybe they’ll petition the German government to return the Pergamon altar to Turkey (perhaps as Turkey’s welcome-present to the EU 😉 ). …Interesting that the Western nation which turned itself into a giant and ruthlessly efficient machine for the extermination of Jews has these ties with a nation which could well emerge as the head of a multinational confederacy for the extermination of Jews.

    No discussion of Jews, Turkey and satanic deceptions would be complete without mentioning the Dönmeh. Joel, have you touched upon them at all in your writing? I wonder whether the “synagogue of Satan” might have something to do with them and the other Sabbateans. Zevi was certainly satanically inspired.

    […] 12“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this: 13‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

    Hi Joel,
    I have been studying through Jesus’ messages to the 7 churches in Revelation and can’t help but to think that Jesus was telling us directly some things about the anti-christ (whom will be indwelt by Satan). Namely, that the seat of his power will be in Turkey (Rev. 2:13) and the religion/church of the anti-christ will be Islam (synagogue of Satan, Rev. 2:9; 3:9). They (Muslims) say they are Jews (followers of God) but are not because they are not circumcised of the heart. Revelation 3:9 would have an interesting meaning if this is the case. Have you come across this anywhere else or is this a stretch?

    sorry better version:
    NEW BOOK has many new finds! Many have never seen before about the end times! What find did I discover?
    The whole bible actually has a secret story that repeats itself! The bible has the EXACT SAME MESSAGE OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

    THE LOOP by ALan Brooks on amazon

    JEREMIAH 4:
    A false PEACE in Israel
    An invasion from the north—JERUSALEM IS PLUNDERED
    FLEE! (The Antichrist rules of 42 months) Then,
    The earth shall MOURN.
    The mountains tremble with an EARTHQUAKE
    THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THE HEAVENS. (As the Lord comes with no light)

    COMPARED TO JEREMIAH 6:
    A FALSE PEACE in Israel.
    DESTRUCTION from the NORTH
    FLEE! (The Antichrist rules of 42 months) Then,
    THE LORD RETURNS and causes MOURNING.

    COMPARED TO ZECHARIAH 14:

    On THE DAY, Israel is invaded and Jerusalem’s goods will be plundered.
    The city will be ransacked, the houses looted, and the women raped. (God’s army will never do that correct?)
    Half the city will FLEE! (Jesus also warned Judea to FLEE when the antichrist invades.)
    (Not said here, but we know that the Antichrist, after he invades Israel, will rule for 42 months)
    Then, the Lord comes BACK…….On that day his feet will stand on the MOUNTAIN of Olives, EAST of JERUSALEM.

    COMPARED TO EZEKIEL 38,39, 7-11:12-17:
    A PEACEFUL ISRAEL IS INVADED FROM THE NORTH
    FLEE! (Not said here, but we know that the Antichrist rules of 42 months)
    ISRAEL IS DESTROYED (which is why Jesus called it the abomination that causes the desolation of Israel.)
    A great EARTHQUAKE
    ARMAGEDDON
    JESUS COMES BACK AND STANDS ON A HIGH MOUNTAIN

    COMPARED TO ISAIAH:
    IRAN and RUSSIA invade a peaceful middle east ISIS territory.
    Then the antichrist invade ISrael.
    Then, 42 months later, the Lord comes back as the sun moon and stars are darkened!

    COMPARED TO DANIEL 8,11,12:
    The king of the NORTH invades SUNNI ISIS and SAUDI ARABIA, and then turns up to invade ISRAEL.
    He rules for 42 months.
    The Lord comes back and destroys the Antichrist.
    The RESURRECTION.

    COMPARED TO JESUS AND PAUL:
    When people say PEACE (1 Thess. 5:1–3)
    FLEE! (When you see the Antichrist invade Jerusalem)
    Jesus said that this time for great tribulation will last for 42 months
    The SUN, MOON and STARS are darkened.
    The LORD COMES and causes MOURNING (Rev. 1:7)

    COMPARED TO REVELATION 6-7:

    PEACE is taken by the Antichrist riding the white horse.
    The saints are persecuted for 42 months (The cry out, “When will you rescue us?”)
    The sun moon and stars are darkened as the Lord comes back in the air.
    The 144000 are marked.
    The rapture happens and a great multitude are suddenly in heaven.
    The wrath of God falls

    REVELATION 11

    The gentiles invade and conquer Jerusalem for 42 months.
    42 months later the resurrection takes place,
    The 7 trumpet sounds and the rapture happens.

    COMPARED TO ISAIAH 24-27

    Iran invades Saudi Arabia and then Israel.
    Israel is devastated.(Not said here, but we know that the Antichrist rules of 42 months)
    The Lord comes back.
    A trumpet sounds
    The dead rise
    A rapture happens
    God says to his people: “Go to your rooms until the wrath passes by.”
