At the beginning of a new millenium the world is at a critical point: the blessings (i.a. children, even with 8 billion inhabitants on earth) and the sorrows of life (wars, famine, inflation) have both become too big to be solved by mankind alone. The author of this website, coming from a Christian background, a dedicated breeder of asil horses and equine veterinarian in Germany, has tried to combine the wisdom of nations, of holy books and desert riders/raiders into a large picture of hope:
There will be relief from outside of our planet, coming from God, our heavenly father. He will send the Messiah, al-masih, on a white Arabian horse with the armies of heaven on white horses as well. Al-masih will come in the spiritual likeness of Ismael, first son of Ibrahim, as a Bedouin from heaven, if you like. He, the word of God, will make war by his words (Revelation 19). Thus all children of Abraham/Ibrahim, the father of all who believe, will be reunited. This will be the fulfillment of worldwide peace, much more than the already phenemonal acchievements of the Abraham Accords of our days.
THE great Reset? - The Great return instead!
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righeousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like flames of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself. He is clad in a rope dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is the Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses. From his mouth issues a sharp sword with which to smite the nations, ... On his robe and on his tigh he has a name inscribed, King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Bible: Revelation 19: 11-16
Today, a strong anticipation of the return of Jesus/Jeschua in the near future can be found among Bible faithful Christians and Jews, but also to a lesser degree within the Islamic world. The rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948 is one of the striking arguments of the Christian believers and their longing for the rapture (the return of Christ to take the faithful into heaven) was immensely triggered by the pandemic Corona-disease and the return of war to Europe.
At the same time, the many efforts of mankind to solve the effects of overpopulation of our planet are viewed with suspicion: like the World Economic Forum with its announcement of a GREAT RESET to solve all the urgent problems, the many World Climate Summits, or the World Health Organization.
"IT IS WITH THE HEART THAT ONE SEES RIGHTLY"
The Bible as a guideline for a single person´s life and mankind in total, especially the book of Revelation of John, is not easily understood. A verbatim interpretation may lead to many misunderstandings and fatal consequences. A great day of judgement is anticipated by many Christians, summarized in the phrase ARMAGEDDON (also a title of a Hollywood movie). This website wants to present a somewhat different view. An interpretation taking into account the discoveries of the author from his studies of the Bedouin world and following the guidline of Antoine de Saint-Exupery: "It is with the heart that one sees rightly". This is also the way, Jesus has taught us.
Abraham is called the father of all men of faith. Galatians 3: 6: Thus Abraham "believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness". But there is one son of Abraham who has become a forgotten son for Christianity and Judaism as well: Ismael. No children´s Bible contains the story of Abraham sending his son away into the desert. But Ismael proofed to be a true son of his father. Many nations, the inhabitants of the Arabian peninsula and beyond, call Ismael their father. These nations were and are highly influenced by Bedouin society. A society based on the principle of solidarity, not only between men, but also between man and animal, especially their dromedaries and horses.
Today, after many years of envity, peaceful relations have been started between a growing number of Arab or Muslim countries and Israel, under the name of Abraham Accords. Thus the wisdom of Salomon comes to life before our eyes: The threefold cord is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4: 12). The threefold cord of Abraham is composed of 1st the sons of Isaac/Israel, 2nd the Christians and 3rd the sons of Ismael. For all three of them the promised son will come agaín:
"Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righeousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like flames of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself. He is clad in a rope dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is the Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses. From his mouth issues a sharp sword with which to smite the nations, ... On his robe and on his tigh he has a name inscribed, King of kings and Lord of lords." Revelation 19: 11-16
This text starts with a white horse, not with the rider of the horse, a horse that will be an Arabian horse, a horse that Ismael was presented with by God according to Arab traditions. Thus this rider (who is unanimously identified with Jesus/Jeschua/Isa by Bible scholars) will come in the tradition of the desert of Arabia, as a son of the "lost son" Ismael, or in a spiritual likeness of Ismael. Sent by the father to all his brothers on earth. Accompanied by the armies of heaven. For the marriage of the Lamb has come (Rev. 19: 7). And this marriage is celebrated by a special Bedouin habit: a FANTASIA as part of this special wedding taking place.
