||Dr. Patrick Heron was born in Dublin in 1952. At 24 years old, he had an epiphany while reading the Bible. He became interested in bible prophecy concerning the "end times" about 1996. In 1997, his first book Apocalypse Soon was published and became a bestseller in Ireland. It entered the Irish bestsellers list after an interview with Gareth O'Callaghan, on RTE radio, who said he "read it in one sitting and was gripped." There has recently been amazing interest to-date in this new book The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse, published by Kensington Publishing, which Patrick believes is the FIRST EVER book proving overwhelmingly who built the pyramids and why.

Prophecies of the Antichrist - Part XIby Patrick Heron
Posted: 12:00 April 15, 2008
The Book of Revelation opens with the words, “The revelation of Jesus Christ.” This is the divine title of the book. It is not the “Revelation of St. John the Divine.” It is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Revelation in Greek is apokalupsis which means unveiling. It can be used as in the taking away of a veil to reveal the face behind it. Or as the drawing back of curtains to reveal what is hidden behind them.
Thus in this context both ideas are true. For in verse 7 of this first chapter we are informed:
“Look , he is coming with the clouds,
And every eye will see him,
Even those who pierced him.”
So in this future time, everyone will see the face of Jesus Christ as he will be revealed from heaven. This book also provides us with the prophecies of what will befall the earth and its people in the near future. So it is revealing the hidden secrets that are known by very few people today. Even most Christians are oblivious to the truths revealed to us in this exciting book. Verse 3 says “Blessed are those who read the words of this prophecy.” But judging by the response of most Christians to this book, one would suppose it says, “Blessed are those who do NOT read the words of this prophecy,” so openly is this blessing rejected.
“I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day and I heard behind me a voice like a trumpet saying, “Write on a scroll what you see.” Rev 1:10
“The Lord’s day” has nothing to do with a day of the week. Referring to Sunday as the Lord’s day only came into vogue many centuries later. No, the Lord’s day is the same as the “day of the Lord” and is one of the phrases used when talking of the Tribulation period or the time of the Last Days.
This time is also called, the day of Jacob’s Trouble, the day of Wrath, the day of Christ, the Great Tribulation, the day of Judgment.
So when John says he was in the spirit on the Lord’s day, he means that he was spiritually taken into the future and shown certain happenings pertaining to the End Times and he was to write these events in a scroll. The day of the Lord is the day coming when God will do the judging. Today, man does the judging (according to 1 Corinthians 4:1). But there is a time fast approaching when God will do the judging and that is the day of the Lord also called the day of Wrath.
As was already pointed out, the Book of Daniel parallels many of the prophecies in the Apocalypse. That is, they both talk of many of the same events and can be cross checked one with the other. In order to establish that the day of Wrath is indeed speaking of the End Times, and to assuage any who might argue otherwise, we go to Daniel chapter 8:19. Here we quote the man, Gabriel, who is speaking to Daniel:
“He said: “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the TIME OF WRATH, because the vision concerns the appointed TIME OF THE END.”
This leaves us in no doubt that the time of wrath is equal to the time of the end or End Times. We point this out because some contest that when the Bible speaks of the coming Tribulation or day of Wrath, it is not talking of the time of the Apocalypse but of some other unspecified era.
