About The Alpha-Omega Report
The Alpha-Omega Report is an online website providing educational information pertaining to the study and analysis of Biblical Prophecy and current events that may be related to Biblical Prophecy and its eventual fulfillments. The website information is designed to edify Christians and provide encouragement, in the Body of Christ in what we believe are the last days before the fulfillment of “the last days of the age of gentiles.”
The founder of the website is R.A. Coombes who began the website as a follow-up educational resource for his book “America, The Babylon” which was first published in 1998. Mr. Coombes wanted an outlet for further updates regarding his research into the subject of Mystery Babylon as well
as general information and news pertaining to all aspects of Biblical Prophecy.
Mr. Coombes is an author and publisher who has spent more than 35 years in the study of theology and Biblical studies. He became something of a specialist in Bible prophecy studies since then and has spent much of his time since 1987 in studying the narrow issue of Mystery Babylon of Bible Prophecy. Mr. Coombes attended both the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago,
Illinois and Calvary Bible College located in Kansas City. After his schooling, Mr. Coombes became involved in radio broadcasting as both an announcer and a news reporter and news anchor for stations in the American Midwest.
Mr. Coombes also served as an advertising consultant for a number of years including local merchants as well as a Public Relations consultant for President Ronald Reagan and then Vice-President George H.W. Bush. He also provided consultations for various political candidates for Congress and state and local offices. He was also a commodities trading advisor for a short period of time, just before he began his initial research into Mystery Babylon beginning in 1987.
Mr. Coombes’ career experiences as a newsman, political PR consultant and in the investments field has given him a unique viewpoint into the world of Bible Prophecy. It was this background combined with his theological and Biblical studies research abilities along with much Divine guidance enabled him to recognize and understand the Biblical Prophecies for not only Mystery Babylon but other key prophetic elements such as the Gog-Magog
War as well as the ongoing efforts by the New World Order to bring about the empire of the Antichrist.
The origins of The Alpha-Omega Report date back to 1998 when the concept of a Bible Prophecy Studies and News Updates was first published as part of
a website for the book. When the book became out of print, the author temporarily discontinued the website until a unique domain name and website was created in June of 2001 under the URL – aoreport.com
This gave The Alpha-Omega Report its own independent status from the book website which also had moved from a hosting service subdomain to its own independent website address – www.americathebabylon.com
Growth of the Site:
The site began to grow in popularity after September 11, 2001 because of its unique approach to covering news pertaining to Biblical Prophecy. At that time there were few websites devoted solely to covering Bible Prophecy news
coverage and those that did often lumped insignificant news items with a marginal relationship to significant prophetic events.
Mr. Coombes has been the primary force behind the website but has had assistance from a few loyal volunteer supporters who’ve helped from time to time with the publication of the website.
The website was envisioned to be an online Bible Prophecy Magazine for both news and study articles related to Bible Prophecy and its fulfillment. It was envisioned to include not only articles by its founder but by other authors and researchers specializing in Bible Prophecy.
The website growth began with a handful of readers but has quickly grown in the last five years into a worldwide educational ministry. In 2005, more than a half million visitors reached the website. It is unknown as to how many of those visitors were regular, return visitors and how many were occasional visitors or simply one-time visitors. We do know that visitors come from all around the world to read the materials posted to the website.
If current growth patterns are maintained, it is anticipated that The Alpha-Omega Report will have one million visitors in 2006, based in part on current
Changes to A-O:
In the spring of 2006, a new upgraded program was established, thanks in large measure to the generous contributions of loyal A-O readers. The Alpha-Omega Report has been assisted by TLC Services company whose staffers have helped implement the needed technical changes. Why? The old website design had become vulnerable to lapses of security and needed stabilization. It also needed changes to enable the website to grow in a more manageable fashion and provide a greater reach to future visitors. AO also needed a more streamlined website design that offers readers exciting, new features, tools and benefits that are now coming into place as the new changes are completed and new features added.
You can find our Doctrinal Statement of Faith at this link. We would add though, that this website is a Dispensationalist, Pre-millennial, Pre-tribulation rapture website. We do however note that the doctrine of the rapture is somewhat controversial regarding the timing elements and we do not maintain the rigid doctrinal 100% absolute view that the rapture will be
a pre-tribulation event. We do accept the slight possibility that the rapture may occur at a later point in the prophetic timeline after the tribulation begins. We also do not think that various rapture timing theories should be a source of rancor or fractionalizing of the Body of Christ. Indeed, timing of many prophetic elements is at best theoretical and dogmatic assertions on such elements must be realized as improper. Such aspects must always be remembered as being theoretical and not absolute.
The Alpha-Omega Report was funded by the private financing of the founder until the Spring of 2006 when circumstances necessitated that the publisher accept donations from loyal readers who wished to see the website continue its mission of providing news, information and education to those
stopping to visit the website. It is hoped by the Founder that the website can be supported by donations only and not require subscriptions to some added
special features that raise the cost of maintaining the website but provide
greater informational and educational benefits. For those wishing to donate
