“Ye”, formerly known as Kanye Omari West, and the abomination of desolation

There is news that Kanye West, who now goes by the name “Ye”, intends to go to Russia, to perform his “Sunday Service” there, to purchase a place to live in Russia, a second home outside of the USA, and even to meet Vladimir Putin (ref. 1). At the moment, the US State Department has a level 4 “do not travel” advisory for Russia, and tensions between the USA and Russia over Ukraine have not abated. Kanye’s trip to Russia is being organised through Aras Agalarov, who is an Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire and real estate developer, and his son Emin Agalarov, who is a music celebrity in Azerbaijan. One of Kanye’s reps, however, is sceptical about the idea of Kanye meeting Putin (ref. 2). Maybe Kanye is planning to go to Russia to perform his Sunday Service concert, and so he is floating the idea of meeting the Russian president.

Whichever it is, I think now is the right time to examine in some detail the possibility that Kanye West is “the false prophet” foretold in Revelation.

The false prophet is the one with “two horns like a lamb” that will “speak as a dragon” (ref. Revelation 13:11). He will rise in the land of Mystery Babylon (ref. Revelation 13:11). He will proclaim to be a Christian and a prophet of God, but he is neither. He will deceive the earth through “signs and lying wonders” (ref. Revelation 13:13, 2 Thessalonians 2:9), making fire come down from heaven, and he will say to the earth that all should worship the beast with seven heads and ten horns whose deadly wound was healed (ref. Revelation 13:12), that is to say, ISIS, which means the Assyrian and the god of Islam. He will deceive the kings of the earth about Armageddon (ref. Revelation 16:13). Within the land of Mystery Babylon, he will use his supernatural power to cause a molten image to speak (ref. Revelation 13:15). There, he will also bring about the mark of the beast (ref. Revelation 13:16-17). To sum it up, the false prophet is the chosen one of Satan.

It occurred to me back in 2019 that Kanye might be the false prophet of Revelation.

I figured it out on the basis of his then wife’s surname, “Kardashian”, whose fame comes from the series “Keeping up with the Kardashians”.

Abdullah Qardash, also spelt Kardash, the one who now leads ISIS, is the prophesied “Assyrian”, otherwise known as the beast. His birth name, “Abdullah Kardash”, sums in gematria to 666 exactly (ref. Revelation 13:18).

Essentially, to be a Kardashian, or to keep up with the Kardashians, is to follow Kardash and his ilk, which means ISIS, or the goddess “Isis” of ancient Egypt, the same known as “Libertas” or “Liberty” to the Romans, the same known as “Ishtar” to the ancient Assyrians.

Ever since I figured it out, apparently, the spirit that is with Kanye has been trying to get him to separate from his wife Kim Kardashian, in order to mask this connection.

Apart from the name of his ex-wife, it is quite obvious that Kanye has a messianic complex. Often, he regards himself as the Christ, and he does so in a blasphemous way.

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Isaiah 14:12-14

First and foremost, Kanye Omari West has changed his name to “Ye” (ref. 3). “Ye” is one of the names of God, as in Je-sus and Ye-hoshua (Joshua) and Ye-rushalayim (Jerusalem) and Ye-hudah (Judah). Ezekiel 36:20-23 explains that the holy name of God is in the people of the LORD and the house of Israel, meaning Yehudah, or Judah, or Jews. “Yah” is another name of God, as in Hallelu-jah (Alleluia), literally “Praise ye the LORD” (ref. Psalms 111:1, Revelation 19:1). “Yo” is yet another name of God, as in Yo-el (Joel), literally “The LORD is God”. There are three names because God is three and yet one.

Needless to say, an angel who was once in heaven would know the actual name of the Son of God, who is the image of God the Father (ref. Colossians 1:15).

Concerning “Ye”, it is also very interesting that late last year, Turkey suddenly renamed itself “Turkiye”, which is Turkish for “Turkey” (ref. 4). Turkiye can be considered as Turk-I-Ye. Keep in mind, the Assyrian Abdullah Qardash is not only an Iraqi from Nineveh in Mosul Iraq, but ethnically he is also a Turkmen. Furthermore, Turkey, where Pergamos or the seat of Satan is (ref. Revelation 2:12-13), will surely be one of the heads of the beast with seven heads and ten horns, because Turkey was once one of the four kingdoms after the empire of Alexander the Great. Today, Turkey, which fields the second strongest military in NATO, second only to the USA, is already fighting for the cause of Islamists across multiple theatres of war.

Next, Kanye’s one-time rap mentor, Jay-Z, who has a 2003 song titled “Lucifer”, regards himself as “Hova”, in the sense of “Jay Hova”, a blasphemous play on Jehovah. Jay-Z once even wore a sweater with the motto of Aleister Crowley, “Do What Thou Wilt” (ref. 5). Aleister Crowley was an avowed Satanist, who was openly into magick and bestiality, and he taught his followers “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law”.

In 2005, at the 47th Grammy Awards, Kanye performed his song “Jesus Walks”, while dressed as an angel in white (ref. 6), or as “an angel of light.”

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 11:14

Colossians 1:15-17 is clear that Jesus is “the firstborn of every creature” and also the creator of everything including angels. That means the Son of God is not equal to an angel, as the fallen angel Satan would have the world believe.

In 2013, Kanye released his sixth album titled “Yeezus”, a blasphemous combination of Jesus and Zeus – Zeus being Satan.

In 2014, Kanye gave an interview about his song “I am a god” where he insisted emphatically that he is in fact a god (ref. 7).

Kanye saying he is a god

In 2017, Rolling Stone magazine pictured Kanye West as the Christ, complete with a crown of thorns, and the words “The Passion of Kanye West” (ref. 8).

In 2018, Kanye was welcomed into the White House of Donald Trump, and there he ranted incomprehensibly about something, even noting his bipolar disorder. All the while, Trump, who made his fortune in the construction business, having built many apartments lavished with marble, the sort of thing that would involve stonemasons, and besides being in masonry, who sees himself as a white supremacist, patiently sat there and gave Kanye his time and the publicity of the press that was there at the White House, despite having the schedule of a president of the USA (ref. 9).

For those who don’t know, the whole “woke” thing, and “Black Lives Matter” and corresponding police shootings, are all the result of demons, an order-out-of-chaos plan to guilt-trip America and prepare her for the coming of “the Black One”, to use the phrase of the early Christian Barnabas.

In 2019, Kanye released his album titled “Jesus is King” and declared that he had become an evangelical Christian (ref. 10). Notice he chose evangelical Christianity, or Protestanism. Among all the denominations, in many ways, America’s Bible-based KJV Protestants are the ones closest to being correct, the last ones standing as it were, but even so, many of them have now apparently fallen to the wiles of devils.

That same year, Kanye went to Joel Osteen’s megachurch in Texas, which is renowned for the gospel of prosperity, a quintessentially American idea, and there he proudly boasted that he is the greatest artist that God ever created (ref. 11). Remember, the Bible describes leviathan’s lot as “the children of pride” (ref. Job 41:34).

Later that year, Kanye staged an opera of sorts about Nebuchadnezzar, the biblical king of Babylon. During an interview about the show, he likened himself to Nebuchadnezzar (ref. 12) because of something incoherent about his work “Yeezus”, noting that Nebuchadnezzar was a servant of God, which is technically correct because Nebuchadnezzar did fulfil the will of God at the time of ancient Babylon. The fact that Kanye regarded himself in some convoluted way as a king of Babylon is telling, because in due time he actually might be.

In 2021, Marilyn Manson – the heavy-metal singer who once burned a Bible while on stage, and was made an honorary priest of the Church of Satan, and is famous above all for his song “Antichrist Superstar”, that same Marilyn Manson – attended Kanye’s Sunday Service performance, which is supposed to be a Christian church. There, the two embraced and prayed together (ref. 13), as if they were Christians.

Yet, it is not for nothing that the lyrics of the 1996 song Antichrist Superstar sings “Cut off the head. Grows back hard. I am the hydra.” And furthermore, the song goes, “The time has come it is quite clear. Our antichrist is almost here.” This is precisely Revelation 13:1-12, but from the point of view of the other side.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy… And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast… And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Revelation 13:1-12

This year 2022, there will be a Netflix documentary about Kanye titled “jeen-yuhs” (ref. 14), a blasphemous wordplay on Jesus and genius. Kanye has long boasted of his genius, or daemon – the inspiration for his musical work. In the trailer, Kanye remarks: “It’s like god saying, I’m about to hand you the world”.

To be sure, Kanye has been financially successful in his career as an American rapper. In 2021, it was reported that Kanye West has become the richest black American in history, having amassed a net worth of $6.6 billion (ref. 15).

But this comes after his 2009 impromptu freestyle rap during one concert when he revealed that he had sold his soul to the devil (ref. 16): “I sold my soul to the Devil. I know it was a crappy deal. At least it came with a few toys like a happy meal.”

Kanye saying he has sold his soul to the devil

It should be said, as the genius of the Bob Dylan song “All Along the Watchtower” explains, those who have made this sort of Faustian bargain in these last days know not what any of it is worth: “Businessmen they drink my wine; Plowmen dig my earth: None of them along the line, Know what any of it is worth.”

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come… For in one hour so great riches is come to nought…

Revelation 18:10-17

By the way, I happen to also know why, when Babylon’s hour comes, certain merchants of the earth will weep and say that “no man buyeth their merchandise any more” (ref. Revelation 18:11). More about that some other time.

Last but not least, there is Kanye’s full birth name, “Kanye Omari West”, which in Swahili literally means “Let’s give to god the west”. Since the 9th century, the god of the Swahilis has been Allah, the god of Islam. Therefore, the god to whom the west is to be given must be Allah.

Kanye has admitted to taking opioids, painkillers, and marijuana (ref. 17). Any of these three can explain his bipolar disorder, or psychosis – in other words, his demonic possession.

The Bible prophesies that, at the time of the end, there will be many false Christs and false prophets.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Matthew 24:24

There are some fifty million fallen angels roaming about here on earth, looking for whomever they may beguile, now that Satan has been cast out of heaven and his angels with him.

While it is possible that Kanye might be merely a false Christ, it seems to me, there is more to him than that. Because of his birth name, because of the name of his ex-wife Kardashian, and because of the name that he has now given himself, Ye, my sense is that Kanye West is different from the others.

Now, Matthew 24:15, Mark 13:14, Daniel 11:31, and Daniel 12:11 all speak of “the abomination of desolation”. This is the marker of the start of the final three and a half years.

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Daniel 12:11-12

The abomination of desolation is mentioned in Daniel 11, and for this reason it is something that I am supposed to be able to figure out.

The word “abomination” in Daniel in the Hebrew is shiqquts, as in “idol”, something detestable. For this reason, it is rightly thought that the abomination will be some sort of idol.

When Antiochus IV Epiphanes of Seleucia polluted the temple of God in his day, he put in there a statue of Zeus. Zeus is the ancient Greek god who led all the other gods of Greek polytheism. That means, Zeus was the angel Satan, the one who leads the rebellion against God. Subsequently, the Maccabees took back the temple and cleansed it. This is the reason for the celebration of Hanukkah.

In these last days, the abomination or idol that will be put into the temple of God to pollute the holy place will not necessarily be a statue or an image.

For one thing, Islam does not permit idolatry either. Shirk is Islam’s version of idolatry: the deification of anyone or anything other than Allah.

So, when the Assyrian reaches the temple mount (ref. Daniel 11:45), I doubt that he will put into the Jewish temple of God a statue or an image of any sort. In fact, I think, he will tear down the tabernacle (ref. Amos 9:11) rather than exalt anything or even himself. He may worship “the god of forces” privately in his estate (ref. Daniel 11:38), but publicly he must obey the rules of Islam if he is to maintain command of the armies of his empire.

At any rate, the Assyrian will reach the temple mount in verse 45 of Daniel 11. But the abomination of desolation will take place in verse 31. This means the abomination will happen before Israel wages war against the Assyrian in verse 40.

Verse 31 reads that it will be an army on the part of the Assyrian that will pollute the sanctuary of strength, and take away the daily sacrifice, and place the abomination of desolation.

And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Daniel 11:31

It might be that the abomination spoken of by Daniel is the false prophet of Revelation himself!

Today, it is no secret that the idols of America are celebrity pop singers. America is a land obsessed with celebrity idols. To this point is the TV show “American Idol”.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot. Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered. And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication [spiritual adultery] with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.

Isaiah 23:15-17

The false prophet, or the man of sin, can be thought of as “the abomination of desolation”, in other words, an “abomination” or an “idol” that will make Mystery Babylon desolate, because he will convince almost the whole land of Babylon to sin against God, specifically to serve and worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed. He and the spirit that is with him will do this primarily through the mark of the beast. For this sin, and for betraying Israel, Babylon will suffer the wrath of God on the day of Christ. The fiery weapons that will be used against Babylon by her enemies will make her utterly desolate, and thereafter it will be impossible for any survivors who remain there to consummate. This is the meaning of Daniel 9:27.

… he [Satan] shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Daniel 9:27

For now, I have left out “the covenant with many” and the reason why the false prophet will be there on the temple mount at all. Suffice it to say that this will be a moment of tremendous betrayal.

The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon, shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say.

Jeremiah 51:35

At the height of his power, the false prophet will be as wicked and as antichrist as the Assyrian, the beast himself (ref. Revelation 13:12).

Right now, Kanye West might not look the part, and he is far away from having any political power.

Certainly, he has not yet shed any blood the way Ethiopia’s Pentecostal PM Abiy Ahmed Ali, for instance, has done. Then again, the false prophet of Mystery Babylon is to have two horns like a lamb. So, for a while, he is to appear to be good rather than evil.

It might be that Kanye West is merely another drug-user who is being used and deluded by demons, which would make him simply a false Christ or another false prophet. Or else, it might be that Kanye West is the chosen one of Satan, the prophesied abomination of desolation at the time of the end.
