||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 V

We have learned that the Abyss is a place of incarceration for both spirits and angels. This place is a subterranean prison which is also named Tartarus and the bottomless pit. So what is the difference between angels and spirits? Most folks think of spirits as invisible, ethereal entities that haunt houses or possess demented humans. But what relation do spirits have with angels? Hebrews 1:13,14
“But to which of the angels said he at any time, sit on my right hand until I make your enemies thy footstool?
Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”
This is referring to what we call guardian angels who minister to those of us who are saved Christians. But it also tells us that angels are spirits. In vs. 7 of this same chapter we read, “Who maketh his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire.” Twice in the same chapter we are told that angels are spirits.
Another clear example of this truth is given in the Book of Acts chapter 8. This is the record of Philip who was told by and angel to go and speak to a eunuch who was high up in the government of Candace, queen of Ethiopia. After teaching this man the truth regarding the resurrection, the eunuch asks to be baptized and says that he believes that Jesus is the Son of God. Here are a few clips from the story;
26 “And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip saying…”
29 “And the Spirit said unto Philip, go near…”
39“And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip that the eunuch saw him no more…But Philip was found at Azotus.”
It was “the angel of the Lord” who was sent on a special mission to Philip. Immediately afterwards the same being is called a spirit - “the spirit said unto Philip,” while in verse 39 the same angelic messenger is called “the spirit of the Lord” (i.e. the spirit sent by the Lord), who finished his mission by catching Philip away to Azotus. Thus we speak of someone being “spirited away.”
This proves that angels are spirits. But what of their appearance? What do they look like? Are they little naked cherubim with bows and arrows? Or glorious beings with long blond hair and huge wings? Well for a start, angel is a misleading word. It comes from the Greek, aggelos and a better translation would be messenger or agent. The same goes for the Hebrew word, malak, which is also translated angel. These beings are often sent to deliver news.
