Boastful claims of “checkmate in 8 moves” led to the unveiling of a “fake genius.” The incident happened in Boblinger in 1999. It features a gentleman by the name of Clemens Allwermann.
A complete report of the event can be read at the link below.
“Here Kalinitschev resigned. While they were shaking hands Allwermann couldn’t resist mentioning that the final position was mate in eight. “I don’t think so,” said Kalinitschev. “Check it out, you’ll find I’m right,” replied Allwermann with a wry smile.”
The picture below shows the position on the board where Allwermann claimed he could see a forced checkmate for white in 8 moves in spite of whatever move black makes. It is black`s turn to move!
In these Biblically illiterate days in which we live, it is not very well-known that the Devil has boastfully and sinisterly claimed a “checkmate in 5 moves.” Naturally the implications of the Devil`s boasts are a great deal more disastrous for the world than the mere fanciful boasting of Clemens Allwermann.
The Devil`s checkmate claims can be read and examined in Isaiah 14:13,14.
Isaiah 14:12 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!
13 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:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Note boast 1; “I will ascend into heaven”
Note boast 2; “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God”
Note boast 3; “I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north”
Note boast 4; “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds”
Note boast 5; “I will be like the most high”
Boast number 3, is particularly sinister, plus it is of great significance to this particular time in history. The Devil is staggeringly telling the world that one day he will sit in a temple which will be built in Jerusalem.
For many centuries true believers have wondered how such a scenario could possibly come about? It is not so today, today it is possible to see all the pieces fitting together.
For example, how come most of the world`s “secret societies” all long for, and work towards the day when a third Hebrew temple will be built in Jerusalem?
How is it that there are now Hebrew zealots in Jerusalem who are actually in the process of preparing for the erection of a third Hebrew temple in Jerusalem? The last time I checked, they were claiming that the accoutrements for the temple had been made?
Boast number 3 has another very, very sinister dimension to it. When it is carried out it will trigger the final Holocaust. This time, it will be a very determined attempt to exterminate every true Bible believer and every Hebrew from the face of the earth.
It will be a time of terror such has never been seen in the history of any nation. The prophet Daniel records it in these words, Daniel 12:1 “and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:”
Daniel also reveals to us that the time-span of this period of terror will be three and a half years. The Bible describes it in a picturesque way , “that is shall be for a time, times, and an half;”
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Naturally God will bring the Devil`s boasts, schemes, minions and followers to an end. God has announced checkmate in one! It is the ultimate checkmate and it is very simple.
God will make people believe the truth is a lie, and that the lie is the truth!
If you have any discernment at all, you will know that this is already happening on a world-wide basis.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
It could well be the case, that the chess game Allwermann versus Kalinitschew 1999, is the most important game in Chess history? Anyone who is interested can play over the entire game at this link.
