Shortly before sunset, battle is engaged,
A great nation is uncertain.
Overcome, the sea port makes no answer,
the bridge and the grave both in foreign places.
Un peu devant que le soleils'excuse,
Conflict donné grand peuple dubiteux:
Profliges, port marin ne faict response,
Pont & sepulchre en deux estranges lieux.

Century 1 - Quatrain 37

WAR WHEN THE UNITED STATES IS NOT AT THE PEAK OF HER POWERS

    B: He says this quatrain is one with multiple meanings, but one of the meanings does have something to do with what you need to know. This portrays the see-sawing back and forth the United States will go through before getting involved with this conflict with the AntiChrist. He says "close to sunset" means that in this situation it is known the United States is not at the peak of her powers as she was years before. It's in her sunset, so to speak, so far as her influence and power is concerned. Her star is waning somewhat. There's still some influence and power, but she's not getting as much done as she could have in earlier years. He says "the nation is uncertain" refers to the division of opinion amongst the people of the United States as to whether or not to get involved with this conflict. The seaport being taken refers to the fact that shipping and such will be very dangerous during this time, because the Anti-Christ's "silver fish"--he's referring to submarines--will make the seas very threatening. There are enemy soldiers in the port fouling up shipping. He says a lot of the decisive battles will be battles concerning the taking over of seaports as well.

    UPDATE: When this quatrain was translated in1986 it seemed difficult to imagine where these Middle Eastern countries would obtain their navy from, especially submarines. One possible answer came in 1992 after the breakup of the Soviet Union. U.S. intelligence reports indicated that Iran was buying Russian submarines with the apparent aim of controlling the narrow straits leading into the Persian Gulf. This meant that they could conceivably control all shipping traffic entering the gulf. Iran and other Middle Eastern countries were also buying other weapons, including nuclear ones, and the Soviet nuclear scientists were now looking for jobs with the highest bidder. The unthinkable had now become possible, through extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances.

    B: And he says the grave being in a foreign land refers to the fact that many people will be dying far away from home in the course of the conflict.

There were many quatrains that were interpreted as referring to the first President Bush. It now becomes obvious that they could refer to the second. Who would have known there would have been two. Remember these were first interpreted and in print in 1989.
