Volume 16, Issue 2

 

 

Over the years I have preached many sermons about the Antichrist, the Great Tribulation and the Mark of the Beast. But I have never really thought about what it meant to live during the time that Jesus said would be shortened or no person would survive.

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)

I have written nine books in the Kabbalah series in the last three years and laid out the road a road map of how a world government has been shaped in the last 300 years.

Lately, my personal devotional time has been spent reading about China. The first book dealt with events on the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989 and the second book is the life story of the well-known house church leader named Brother Yun, also known as “The Heavenly Man.” The persecution, imprisonment and torture of Yun went through got deep into my soul and I realized how ill prepared believers in Christ are in the West when it comes to persecution.

Several days after I finished these books, the Holy Spirit began to tell me that I was not prepared for the future despite all the knowledge I had accumulated during the years of ministry and that few Christians had ever entertained the thought that they might have to live through the Great Tribulation. We need to be mentally, spiritually and physically prepared. In this article we will examine the common teaching that the Church will be raptured before the coming of the Antichrist. In reading the Bible, I have not found any reference in the Bible supporting a pre-rapture of the believers in Christ.

Here are the different time periods given in the Bible:

  • Daniel was told by the angel that from the time the daily sacrifice ended in the temple in Jerusalem until the Antichrist set himself up as God would be 3.53 years. (Dan. 12:11)

  • There is another time given to Daniel that speaks of 3.66 years. There is no reference in the Bible to when this period begins and thus it will be unknown until God gives a new revelation that explains it. (Dan. 12:12)

  • John was told that the torment of the locusts from the bottomless pit would last five months. (Rev. 9:5)

  • The first period of the Antichrist will last for 3.5 years before he is killed. (Rev. 13:1-5) His deadly wound will be healed as he is brought back to life and worshipped as a god. (Rev. 3:12)

  • The total reign of the Antichrist is listed as one hour. (Rev. 17:12) Using the formula given to Peter, one hour in heaven is the equivalent of 41.6 years on earth. (2 Peter 3:8)

  • There is no timetable for how long the Great Tribulation will last, except that Jesus said the time would be shortened so that people would survive. (Matt. 24:21-22)

My conclusion is that the Great Tribulation period and the reign of the Antichrist are not one and the same. The Great Tribulation refers to judgments of God that are poured out on the earth while the reign of the Antichrist will last for 41.6 years.

GOD’S PLAN FOR THE CHURCH IN THE END TIMES

I decided to pray and seek the Lord for every Scripture that dealt with life on earth for Christians during the time of the Antichrist. I was amazed to find so much information about the end times that it became clear that God indeed does have a preparation program for His people. God did not want to wait until the last minute to reveal to his prophets what the ending of the earth would be like. As a result, He began to reveal a little here and a little there with the final revelation given to the Apostle John in 90 A.D., known today as the Book of Revelation, the last book in the Bible.

Logic tells us that this information will not be relevant for most Christians, except for the generation of Christians who live on the earth at the time that these prophecies are fulfilled. I believe we are getting close to that time and thus what I’m about to share with you should be relevant to you and your loved ones.

We will begin in the Old Testament and three prophets who were given specific details about the end of time: Isaiah, Ezekiel and Daniel.

ISAIAH

Isaiah lived approximately from 800 to 690 B.C. Israel at this time had been split into two kingdoms, with the ten northern tribes making up the Kingdom of Israel and the two southern tribes making up the Kingdom of Judah. Isaiah lived through the dramatic fall of Israel and its capitol Samaria in 721 B.C. by the Sargon II, and most of the people were taken captive and scattered into the Assyrian Empire and replaced by Gentiles who were brought in from different nations to resettle Israel. (2 Kings 17:18-28)

According to historical records, Isaiah lived close to the temple in Jerusalem his whole life. His great concern was that the people of Israel did not listen to warnings from God and lost their land. He must have been heartbroken over that the kings of Judah and its people who refused to repent of their sins when they heard that the ten northern tribes had not only been defeated, but most of the people had been carried into other nations.

Isaiah prophesied against the kings of Judah and the ruling political parties to no avail. Prior to Isaiah there had been no end time’s prophecies with the exception of  Enoch who lived before the flood.

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CURRENT CREATION

The Lord moved upon Isaiah and he spoke a prophecy about the end of times:

“Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.” (Isa. 34:1-4)

RESTORING THE NATION OF ISRAEL

Toward the end of his life, God gave Isaiah another prophecy about the end times, but he didn’t know when it would take place or what the conditions would be. In reading the Book of Revelation, it is clear to us now that this is a prophecy about the Thousand Years Kingdom and life in the New Creation.

Since this was not clear to the Jews they simply believed that God would bring the ten northern tribes back into their land one day, and that the kingdom would no longer be split, but that it would be restored to the way it was during the time of King David and King Solomon. The Kabbalistic Jews adopted this prophecy and made it a pillar in their doctrine of an Israeli world kingdom, where the descendants of Abraham would be supreme rulers of the earth and all Gentiles would become slaves to Israel and its people. (Isaiah 60:1-22)

A NEW CREATION

The last prophetic word that Isaiah received was that the current earth and universe would not last for eternity, but that at some time in history they would cease to exist and there would be a new creation.

“Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name: That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes. For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.” (Isa. 65:14-17)

This last prophecy was not given in chronological order, for in the following verses, we gain insight in what it is going to be like in the Thousand Years Kingdom:

“And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.” (Isa. 65:19-25)

Thus in a time of great trouble God gave his people hope that He would restore Israel and give them a future in the end. This was the word that the Jewish people clung to when Jerusalem fell in 587 B.C. and the city was destroyed with its temple and the majority of the Jewish people were carried into captivity into Babylon.

When Manasseh was made a king of Judah after Hezekiah’s death, he was only 12 years old and Judah was ruled by his adult spiritual guardians, who came from the political party Ahaz. They wanted to bring back the idol worship that had been destroyed by Hezekiah, and in order to move the young boy in the wrong direction, they had to remove the prophet Isaiah. According to historical records, he was murdered by being sawn asunder.  

EZEKIEL

As a young priest, Ezekiel was taken into Babylon eleven years before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had defeated the kingdom of Judah in 598 B.C. and set up a vassal king over Jerusalem. He then took the first wave of Jews into captivity and brought them to Babylon. Ezekiel became a priest to the Jews living in exile and his main focus in life was to minister to his people and pray that the Babylonian empire would be destroyed so that the Jews could return to Jerusalem and Judea.

REVEALING THE SINS OF THE PRIESTS IN THE TEMPLE

Ezekiel was aware of the people’s sins and gave prophecies concerning what was going on secretly in the temple so far away. (Ezek. 8:1-18; 22:23-31; 34:1-11)

THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD

He was given a series of prophecies toward the end of his life about Israel that would take place in the future. There was no time frame given when this would take place and these prophecies have been badly interpreted and misused by preachers for the last 200 years, even by myself when I was misled by Hal Lindsey back in the 1970s.

The first prophecy is that God toward the end of time on this earth will raise up the people of Israel from their spiritual death. (Ezek. 37:1-14)

This resurrection is going to take place after the second return of Christ and will only be for those Israelites who have repented of their sins and believed in the Messiah. This knowledge of life after death was given by revelation to Enoch, and was expressed by the preacher Job, who was a contemporary of Abraham:

“Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.” (Job 19:23-27)

Very few ministers bring out the background of the different prophets in the Old Testament, therefore it is easy to misconstrue the message that was given to the prophets by God. Ezekiel was heartbroken that the ten northern tribes had been removed from their land, Israel had been divided into two kingdoms and now both of these kingdoms had been absorbed into another nation. The temple had been destroyed and Jerusalem had been reduced to a heap of rubble. It would take a miracle to restore the nation of Israel and this was the message that God gave to Ezekiel. One day Israel and Judah would no longer be divided and the people would once again be one. (Ezek. 37:15-22)

Then God told Ezekiel the spiritual condition of the people at this time that they would be holy and there would be no more defilement. Ruling over them would be the resurrected King David. (Ezek. 37:23-25)

This prophecy is supported in the Book of Acts 15:16 and in Revelation 20:4.

God also told Ezekiel that there would be a new covenant, one that would be everlasting. (Ezek. 37:37:26-28)

The Kabbalistic Jews and the Christian Zionists use the 37th chapter of Ezekiel to support the foundation of the state of Israel in 1948. What they completely disregard is that God described the condition of the people as sanctified and holy and that the resurrected King David would rule over them with a new covenant. There is no King David at this time ruling the political state of Israel, and most of the leadership and people of Israel do not even believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

THE LAST WAR ON THE EARTH

For some reason God decided to give Ezekiel a detailed description of the final war on the earth as described by the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation. (Rev. 20:7-9) God knew this war would be fought thousands of years after Ezekiel had died and never told Ezekiel that he was going to be personally involved in this war,  but there is a strong warning to the generation who will be alive at the time of this war. Every true believer in Christ should refuse to participate in it since it is doomed to failure because it is a battle against God directly. Thus this prophecy is for the generation that will be alive during the time of the Thousand Years Kingdom. (Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39)

DANIEL

Neither the Bible nor historical records reveals what wave of deportation Daniel was in. All we know is that he was taken to Babylon with his young friends and that they were groomed for civil service in the Babylonian government. They were anointed by God and found great favor in the eyes of the king of Babylon and given high government positions. God gave Daniel dreams and visions that applied to his day, but God also gave him spectacular revelations regarding the end times as well. Just like with Ezekiel, God knew that Daniel would not live in the flesh to see this take place, but the prophecies were given for the generation that will be alive at the end times.

TAKING CONTROL OF THE WORLD

The first piece of important information we get from Daniel is that the future world dictator (Antichrist) will take power with a small number of people aiding him. (Dan. 11:23-24)

The concept given to the prophets was that the Antichrist will not be a Gentile, but from one of the tribes of Israel. The Old Testament narrows it down even further that the true Messiah would come from the tribe of Judah. In order for this Man of Sin to deceive the Jewish people into believing that he is the genuine Messiah, he too must fulfill the prophecy and come from the lineage of King David. (Isa. 11:1-5)

The charge of anti-Semitism is thrown around a lot today. Being labeled as an anti-Semite can be compared to being blacklisted or receiving the kiss of death in society. Consequently, everyone is afraid to criticize the Jews for fear of being blacklisted as anti-Semitic. A Christian is not anti-Semitic when he embraces the biblical teaching that the Antichrist is going to be from the tribe of Judah and claim lineage to King David. Matthew and Luke put great importance on validating the lineage of Jesus (Matt. 1:1-16; Luke 3:23-38)

Do you think the rabbis who validate the Antichrist will be sloppy and bypass this issue? Only a biblically uneducated person would make that assumption. No Jew would ever accept a man claiming to be the Messiah unless he was first validated by the chief rabbis.

I have already established in the Kabbalah book series  how the World Zionist Federation has a goal of establishing a Jewish “One World Government” under the direction of the Jewish Messiah, which they claim will be empowered with power from God and thus will yield divine power that will supernaturally put down all resistance. The problem is that they do not have a Messiah in place right now, nor do they have divine supernaturally power, and therefore they are relying upon deception and military power.

In order to understand how the Jewish power structure works, you cannot equate the government of the political State of Israel with the World Government. The government in Jerusalem is a local government in charge of three million Jews and Arabs who live in Israel. It is their duty to make sure that they maintain the borders of Israel militarily and ready at all times to repel any attack on Israel, which includes pre-emptive strikes if necessary.

The real Jewish World Government is located in London and New York and is set up in a similar fashion to the Roman Catholic Church.

 Everybody in the world knows the political set up of the Roman Catholic Church. There are priests in charge of the local parishes and congregations. These local churches are governed by a bishop, who is in charge of a district. A cluster of districts is ruled by a Cardinal. A number of cardinals do not have a district, but are stationed in Rome, where they are in charge of different departments. The top leader in the Roman Catholic Church is the Pope. The pope can only be chosen from the body of cardinals, so when a pope dies, all the cardinals gather in Rome in a secret conclave to elect fromamong themselves the next pope.

There is no unity among Jewish rabbis and there is no chief rabbi that rules all the rabbis in the world. Judaism is more like the Protestant churches, which are divided up into many different denominations.

The top secular Jewish leadership is Kabbalistic, but there are different levels of devotion to the Kabbalah among them. Most synagogues are reform or orthodox, but there are some synagogues which cater exclusively to the Kabbalah and the Talmud. Of some 13 million Jews living in the world in 2013, less than 20,000 are hard core Kabbalist’s. The recruiting is done pretty much the same as in Freemasonry where you don’t ask to become member but are selected and given a chance to get on the Kabbalistic team. To be in the inner core, you have to be part of the old European Jewish families dating back to the 18th century. There is a secret Jewish congress consisting of 300 delegates, who in turn elect members to the cabinet of 13. There are 12 members in this cabinet representing the twelve tribes of Israel and the 13th is the messianic representative, who one day will be replaced by the false messiah (Antichrist). When the messianic representative dies, the twelve members choose a new one from their ranks and then the congress of 300 elects another man to fill the Cabinet of 13.

To be a member of the congress you must be a devoted Luciferian and fiercely devoted to the Zionist cause of a world government under Jewish leadership.

The Cabinet of 13 controls the entire world through its grip on banking and investment funds. Every national political leader is under their control through bribery, extortion or finance. Since the Cabinet has total control of the establishment media in every nation, they can easily manipulate elections and the financial markets. The Internet has been a problem for the world government with its freedom of information and eventually they will take control when they believe that they have squashed all possible opposition. In the meantime, they are pressuring companies like Google and Yahoo to withhold information they feel is a threat to them. China and other communist nations are blocking anything on the Internet they feel is a threat to their security and that also includes a number of Islamic nations in the Middle East.

The Cabinet of 13 rules through a number of sub organizations. The least well-known organizations among Gentiles are the different Jewish congresses, which is not to be confused with the Congress of 300. There is the World Jewish Congress, the Canadian Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Congress, the South American Jewish Congress, the European Jewish Congress and the African Jewish Congress. As you can imagine, there are no Gentiles in these organizations.

The next layer in this pyramid are Gentile organization like the Illuminati, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderburgers, different Masonic lodges, college and university fraternity organizations, World Council of Churches, labor unions, a number of liberal church denominations, most of the American Evangelical denominations and independent churches, conservation groups like the Sierra Club, and a number of political lobby groups in Washington DC, the most well known is AIPAC.

Pastors Rick Warren from Saddleback Church in Southern California and John Hagee from Cornerstone Church in Texas are their most valuable assets in the Christian community.

The people in these Gentile organizations dont know who they work for nor do they understand the hidden goals. There are a number of catch slogans for the different groups. For example, there is much talk that global warming must be curbed and that population control is a must since there are too many people on earth. Furthermore, we need to save the whales, save the tigers, save the spotted owls, save the trees, etc. Trained agitators will whip up the emotions of the people in the different organizations and tell them how important it is to work for the “cause.”

Top leaders are told for look for young people with talents and they are usually recruited as early as high school and sent through different leadership training programs. In order to make them pliable, they are encouraged to dislike the Bible and Christians in generality. They are taken to lavish retreats, where they are given alcohol and recreational drugs and encouraged to become sexually involved with other participants; there is no restriction on sexual activities as homosexual acts are just as popular with the top leadership. Thus, as a person is being trained and educated, they are being morally destroyed at the same time. By building in this weakness into their upcoming leadership, the top leaders can easily destroy any person who does not tow the party line by disclosing their deviant sexual lifestyle. Senator Gary Hart ran for the presidency in the 1988 when his extramarital affair with Donna Rice became headline news and he was forced to bow out of the race. Senator John Edwards had a child out of wedlock with Rielle Hunter while his wife battled cancer; he fought hard to keep it a secret to no avail and was forced out of the race for the White House.

The nations’ intelligence services are controlled by the Cabinet of 13, which gives them access to national secrets and professional assassins. Most countries have special forces which will augment intelligence agencies when a more powerful force is needed. The Jewish world government has the Mossad, the most feared intelligence service in the world. Intelligence organizations like the CIA, the FBI, the MI5 and MI6, the Russian FSB, which used to be known as the KGB, all fear the Mossad.

The only nation that the Jewish world government has not been able to completely intimidate and control is China. It is interesting that the Book of Revelation tells of a huge army coming from the east to battle the Antichrist forces in the Middle East. (Revelation 9:14-16)

It is dangerous to work for the world government’s organizations, particularly if you are involved in intelligence or special forces operations. Biological warfare specialist Frank Olson (1910-1953) was thrown out of the window in a high rise building, FBI director Edgar Hoover (1895-1972) was given a speedy departure when he started to resist his handlers, CIA directors William Casey and William Colby were both killed to keep them from revealing secrets. President John F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy, were assassinated, labor boss Jimmy Hoffa was most likely murdered and there are hundreds of other cases like this. Senators and Congressmen have been murdered, some were framed and sentenced to long prison terms.

Politicians quickly find out that if they are not politically correct, they will be sabotaged, maligned and smeared in the media or simply ignored.

Recently there have been whistleblowers who have revealed how the IRS has been used against people who are bucking the system. For years I have been telling people that the National Security Agency (NSA) is monitoring all phone calls, e-mails, bank transactions, etc. and the American people are constantly being monitored and their data stored on supercomputers.

WHO IS THE ENEMY OF THE JEWISH WORLD GOVERNMENT?   

The leaders in this Jewish World Government fear the free thinking opinion makers and conservative Christians, particularly Baptist and Pentecostal Christians. Any group that tries to organize themselves into a political party and fight the establishment is hated with a passion and the American Tea Party falls into this category.

You might scoff at what I just said, but look at these facts: Christians were hunted down and butchered by the millions in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, and all other Communist nations in the world. Anyone who tried to organize opposition parties in these nations were hunted down and killed.

In the future, any person or group that doesn’t bow down to this world government and chooses to resist it will be considered dangerous and killed with extreme prejudice. If this newsletter is found in your possession during the reign of the Antichrist, you will be arrested, labeled an enemy of the state and sentenced to death. There will be no death row like there is now in the United States, where a prisoner can sit for 30 years while he appeals the sentence. No, it will be like in China where you are arrested today, sentenced tomorrow and killed the next day.

Thus, the prophetic word given to Daniel about the Antichrist and his system has to a degree been fulfilled and continues to be fulfilled as the world government increases its stranglehold on the world.

WHY ARE CHRISTIANS SO DANGEROUS?

A dictator cannot allow another power system to exist in his kingdom if he is going to have absolute control over the people. As soon as Jesus was born in Bethlehem, news about his birth was brought to King Herod, who saw Jesus as a threat and decided that He must be killed to protect his power. (Matt.2:1-20)

The ruling Jewish leadership at the time of Christ could not co-exist with the Kingdom of God and they made it clear that Jesus had to die. (Matt. 26:1-5; 65-75; 27:1-42)

They thought that by having Jesus executed by the Romans, there would be no more threat to their monopoly of power over the Jews. When they realized that the movement of Jesus was still alive and well, they attacked again and went after Jesus’ followers. (Acts 4:1-21)

The Book of Acts is the history of the persecution experienced by Christians at the hands of the Talmudic Kabbalistic Jewish leadership and of the Roman government. Thousands of Christians paid with their lives during the first three hundred years.

When Satan infiltrated the Christian churches and founded the Roman Catholic Church in 325 A.D., the persecution of believers in Christ did not come from the outside forces, but from within the apostate church of Rome.

Kings in different nations persecuted Christians for centuries and when the communist scourge was unleashed upon the earth, the blood of born again believers also began to flow at the hands of the Nazi’s in Germany and the Fascist’s in Italy.

These ungodly governments and religious groups knew that a born again Christian cannot be controlled, and furthermore, they will witness and lead other people to Christ and in time win enough people for Christ that the dictatorship will lose power and be destroyed.

The Jewish world government leaders know their history well and recognize that Christianity must be eradicated if they are going to take control over the earth. This was predicted by Jesus 2,000 years ago. (Rev. 13:5-9)

THE SPIRITUAL CONDITION OF BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS   

It is very interesting that God told the prophet Daniel some 2,500 years ago what the spiritual condition would be on the believers of Christ in the end times.

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” (Dan. 11:32-35)

When this prophecy was given, there was only one covenant in force, and thus God was telling those in the future that the Antichrist will flatter the Jewish people, while God’s people will be strong, which includes Jews and Gentiles who have been born again. There will be preaching and teaching by Christians, but at the same time, there will be a terrible persecution.

Just like in the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and modern day China, there will be no human help for the believers in Christ when they are tormented and executed. Jesus spoke about this in the Book of Revelation:

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” (Rev. 14:12-13)

Other believers in Christ will be tempted and choose to sin like we have seen so many times with evangelists, pastors and church people in the last 50 years. There will be repentance when the chastisement of God falls upon them, and they will be purged from their sins through pain and suffering.

THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE A HOMOSEXUAL

God gave Daniel very little detail about the Antichrist’s sexuality and was simply told that the Man of Sin would have no desire for women.

Even though he will be Jewish, he will not worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; instead, he will worship the god of forces, which is Lucifer, and this is precisely the same the god that the Kabbalists worship.

“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Dan. 11:36-39)

Jesus later provided more information that the Antichrist will be a Satanist and that Satan himself will give him the power to subdue the people on the earth. (Rev.13:1-4)

It is frightening to see how homosexuals started to come out of the closet in the 1950s. They have been transformed from timid sissies into hardcore political activists that are no longer ashamed and intimidated, but proud over their deviant lifestyle. They have achieved such political power in European countries, that any person who publicly speaks against homosexuality as a sin, will be prosecuted under the new “hate laws.” It is only a matter of time until this happens in the United States. What the Church has not understood is that what we are experiencing here is the power of the Antichrist spirit.

MICHAEL, THE SUPREME ANGEL COMANDER

God gave Daniel a very encouraging prophetic word when it was revealed that Michael, the commander in chief of all angelic forces, will be sent to do battle for the believers in Christ during the Great Tribulation.

“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” (Dan. 12:1)

God told Daniel that at the end of time on earth, there will be trouble of such proprotions that the world has never seen something like this before. Jesus later confirmed this message: 

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matt. 24:21)

Michael will be given orders to protect every believer in Christ whose name is written in the Book of Life.

We have two other references to what this mighty warrior angel has done. In the first instance, an angel was sent from God to give a message to Daniel but the demon prince over Persia had such power that this angel could not pass through the demonic defense lines and remained outside the earth’s atmosphere until Michael was sent with an expeditionary force that broke through Satan’s defense lines. (Dan. 10:11-13)

In the second instance, we know that Michael was in charge of the heavenly forces that defeated Lucifer, after he started a rebellion among the angels and set out to attack God.  (Rev. 12:7-9) This tells us that God is serious about protecting His people toward the end of the Great Tribulation.

THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION OF BOTH GOOD AND EVIL PEOPLE

This was a powerful revelation that Daniel received from God. Not only were the believers going to be resurrected, but the ungodly were too. (Dan. 12:1-2)

Some 600 years later this was confirmed by Jesus, when the full fate of the believers and unbelievers was revealed. (Rev. 20:10-15)

THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

During the Old Testament time, no believer had ever been baptized in the Holy Spirit. God’s people had received an anointing, but not the baptism. (John 7:37-39)

Daniel was told that those who were wise would shine and lead people to salvation. (Dan. 12:3)

Since the day of Pentecost, those baptized in the Holy Spirit have shined brightly. (Acts 2:1-1-47)

THE REVELATION TO BE SEALED

Daniel did not understand the revelation about the end times. He only got some glimpses and they were not necessarily in chronological order. Which begs the question, when was the revelation given to Daniel unsealed? The complete knowledge of the end times was given by Jesus about 90 A.D., when John was taken up into heaven and told how it all would end. (Dan. 12:4a)

KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE

God gives a significant revelation that knowledge will increase in the end time. (Dan. 12:4b) An examination of history will show that the civilization from the time of Daniel did not change much for the next 2,300 years. Food was grown and processed the same way with animals pulling plows and wagons. Ships were powered by the wind or by rowing. The only thing that changed was the way wars were fought. Guns and cannons were invented after men found out how do produce gunpowder.

The explosion of knowledge began with the invention of the printing press in the late 1400s. In the 18th century man learned how to build steam engines, which made it possible to build railroads and steamships. Once man discovered electricity and how to use it in the early 1800s, knowledge began to increase on an exponential curve. First came the telegraph, then the telephone, the combustion engine, the radio, the television, nuclear power, space flights and suddenly there was no stopping the technological development that encompassed everything on earth from warfare, medicine, farming, education and manufacturing.

In 1947 Satan used his demonic forces and their UFOs to help mankind take a giant leap forward in knowledge when fiber optics, lasers, transistors, night vision, the circuit board and the microchip were handed to the human race. [1]

Suddenly, mechanical adding machines and typewriters were replaced by computers that constantly evolve, becoming faster and more powerful. The Internet gives any person knowledge on just about every subject known to mankind.

When you buy an electronic device today, experience has shown that it will be obsolete in just a few years. Look at the development of television sets when we went from the bulky black and white screens of the 1960s to the sleek flat color screens today.

This prophecy given to Daniel has been partially fulfilled, including the travel of people. Millions of people travel by car, trains, boats and fly from one place to another on a daily basis compared to the time of Daniel when few traveled outside their local areas.

GOD’S PEOPLE WILL BE GIVEN UNDERSTANDING

Most likely you are reading this article because you are among the few elect on earth who have been given understanding about the Messiah, salvation in Jesus Christ and how the world is going to end. There are some eight billion people living on earth today and it is estimated that only 100 million people are born again. The Bible says everyone who is not born again is a wicked person and you can see the foolishness of people in the way they choose to live out their lives on earth. Praise God for our salvation and that we are able to know how the world is going to end and what the future holds for us.

The last verse in this the Book of Daniel is interesting because it tells about the final judgments of people. The judgment will be done according to the time and the generation you belonged to on earth. There will be groups of people, and the generation of Daniel that lived from around 650 B.C. to 550 B.C. will be judged, and then the next lot will come forth of the next hundred years in time, etc. (Dan. 12:13)

PROPHECY GIVEN TO THE APOSTLE PAUL

The apostle Paul never mentioned that he had been in Judea and Jerusalem when Jesus was crucified. The first mention of Paul is at the sentencing and execution of Stephen. (Acts7:58)

Saul was confronted by Jesus and brought to his knees. (Acts 9:1-20) His knowledge of Christ and the Gospel came by revelation of the Holy Spirit, what the apostles and other eyewitnesses told him, and what he had done and taught. (Gal. 1:15-21)

Saul which means “asked” in Hebrew, later changed his name to Paul, which means “little”, never read any of the four Gospels since they were not written when he was called into the ministry. He died before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in 70 A.D. and never saw the Book of Revelation come to fruition, since that was not given until around 90 A.D.

Thus, all the teaching and preaching Paul did was based upon the Old Testament and direct revelations from the Holy Spirit. He was given knowledge about the second coming of Christ and the resurrection of the dead. (1 Cor. 15:35-58; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; 5:1-9)

He told us that when the wrath of God is poured out on earth during the end times, it will not be directed toward Christians.  (1 Thess. 5:9)

Paul is the only apostle that was given the revelation of the catching away of believers from the earth, commonly known as “The Rapture.” Once this teaching became known in the churches that Paul had established, people started to believe that this was an imminent event and they were waiting for it in such a way, that they did not plan their lives any more, since life on earth would be over very soon.

Paul realized that he could not set a date for this event, since he had not been told anything about timing of the catching away of the Christians. (Matt. 24:32-36; Acts1:4-7)

The Holy Spirit gave Paul a sign that people could look for in order to know when the time of the end was here. The sign was that the return of Jesus would not take place before the Man of Sin (Antichrist) becomes publicly known and has taken his position as a world ruler. During his reign on earth, he will eventually proclaim himself to be “god,” enter the temple in Jerusalem and sit on the throne in the holy of holies. Once this has taken place, there are no more events that precede the second coming of Jesus.

The early Christians looked at the temple in Jerusalem, not knowing that some 20 years later, it would be destroyed as predicted by Jesus (Matt. 24:1-2)

God’s Word cannot be broken and someday the Jews will erect a new temple in Jerusalem and restart the daily sacrifices. This will not be the temple of God, but a temple built in the flesh by Jews who reject Jesus Christ as their Messiah. The goal of the Zionist World Federation is to rebuild the temple and all Christian Zionists have been duped into believing this is somehow the work of God.

Thus, there are two thing that need to happen before we can expect the second coming of Jesus and the catching away.

The temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt.

The Antichrist will come to power, enter the newly rebuilt temple, and declare his godhood.

Why would God have the temple rebuilt in Jerusalem and reinstitute the daily sacrifices when Jesus became the final sacrifice for the sins of mankind? It would negate the suffering Jesus endured on the cross! (Hebrews 9:1-28)

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming…” (2 Thess. 2:1-8)

THE DECEPTION OF THE ANTICHRIST

Christian Zionists have been deceived into believing that all believers in Christ will be “raptured” before the Antichrist starts his reign on the earth. Jesus said the Man of Sin will deceive people, and if it were possible, he would even deceive the very elect.

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matt. 24:24)

“Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth…” (2 Thess. 2:9-13)

What deception was Paul talking about? When he gave this prophetic word, he did not know what the deception was and it was not revealed until later when Jesus provided the answer to the Apostle John:

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Rev. 13:11-17)

The deception is two-fold:

  1. To be led into the worship of the Antichrist as “god.

  2. To receive the Mark of the Beast in your hand or forehead.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Jesus told us that the Antichrist would turn his anger toward Christians and persecute them vigorously. If the Church has been raptured, where on earth does the Antichrist find Christians to persecute?

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.” (Rev. 13:5-9)

If there are no Christians left on the earth at this time, who is Jesus addressing in the following verses?

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” (Rev. 14:12-13)

We can conclude in our study so far that there is no biblical teaching that Christians will be removed from the earth before the Antichrist takes control, on the contrary, we are told about resisting and not being deceived.

PREPARING FOR THE END TIMES

You can prepare for the end times by getting yourself mentally ready. In reading this article, you have been given information that cannot be refuted by the King James Bible.

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)

By accepting truth presented you have been mentally prepared. Some years ago when I was able to get out of the mindset of Christian Zionism, I accepted the fact that I might have to live long enough to face the Antichrist and his diabolic system. I do not fear it and have come to the realization that I cannot change the future. I am simply going to trust Jesus all the way.

Make sure that you are born again and not just a church member! Going to church won’t save anyone. You must have that born again experience. (John 3:1-8)

The reign of the Antichrist will span some 41 years and there is no way that Christians can stockpile supplies that will last that long. Our current society is built in such a way that people rely upon electricity from energy companies. Without electricity we won’t have refrigeration of food, lights, heat or air conditioning.

What if you purchase a generator and make your own electricity? That is fine as long as you have access to gasoline, diesel or the propane gas that fuels the generator. Once the Antichrist system has got the Mark of the Beast in place, you won’t be able to resupply yourself.

Since electricity will be scarce, you can only store food that it is either canned or dry. But where will you get your water from?

You can make the decision to get out into the woods with four wheel drive vehicles but they will only run as long as you have fuel for them.

You can try to live off the land like the people did when they first come out to the West in the early 1800s by hunting, but can you do it without a firearm? What happens when you run out of ammunition, your shoes break down and your clothing becomes tattered?

Life will get tougher and tougher and soon you will run out of options. You haven’t had toothpaste and soap in a long time and you can only take a bath in the summer time in a creek or lake. Winter is worst of all, because if you start a fire, you might be detected by the security forces, and if you dont have a fire, you might freeze to death. As you can see, there aren’t many options if you try to work solely in the flesh without God.

WHAT CAN BE DONE?

If you look back at history on the different empires and dictatorships, no regime took control overnight. There are several things that must happen first.

The Antichrist will force all nations to give up their sovereignty and be merged into a world federation. That will take time. If Americans arm themselves and are willing to become organized and fight globalization, we can delay the destruction of the United States.

It is prudent to stockpile emergency food supplies. As Christians, we should network and those living in the cities should make plans to move out of the cities to the country and stay with believers who own property. The takeover of the United States might take several years of civil war and we can live in some type of Christian communes during these times. The important thing is not to forget the Great Commission and share Christ with unbelievers at all times.

Once the Mark of the Beast is in place, our shopping days are over and the only way to survive is to barter with other believers. Try to stock up on seeds that you can use to grow food as long as possible. Eventually you will lose your property since you won’t be able to pay property taxes without the Mark of the Beast, nor will you be able to make a payment on the mortgage. You also won’t be able to hold a job since that requires the Mark of the Beast as well.

Christians will have to fall back completely on God to supply us supernaturally, just like He did with the children of Israel in the wilderness and with the prophet Elijah. (1 Kings 17:1-16)

If you have not surrendered to God at this point in your life, this is the time to do it. If God wants to keep you alive on this earth, He will make it possible. If not, you will confidently succumb to death, knowing that being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. (2 Cor. 5:6-10)

I am sure that there will be pressure on you to just give up and go into the city and take the Mark of the Beast. Husbands, you are the leader of the family. Your wife will beg you to reconsider the children and not let them continue to suffer. Make sure you are walking close with the Lord because your family will depend upon you.

THE MARK OF THE BEAST

As Christians the Bible makes it clear about our security in Christ but there is one thing that I cannot stress enough, you are headed for the Lake of Fire if you take the Mark of the Beast! You can never repent of this act! If you take the Mark for any reason, it will cost you your salvation and earn you a place in the Lake of Fire where the torment will never end!   

“And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” (Rev. 14:8-13)

Remember, you will never be forced or coerced to take the Mark of the Beast. It will solely be your choice because it is a voluntary act of worship that Satan craves. It is better to die of hunger or freeze to death and go to heaven, than to eat well and live for a short while longer by taking the Mark of the Beast. The men and women who gave their allegiance and worked for Adolf Hitler had food and shelter during the Nazi regime, but when Nazi Germany was defeated, they lost it all. If you do not prepare for the end times, at least be mentally prepared not to take the Mark regardless of how bad it gets. I cannot stress it enough that taking the Mark is an act that will never be forgiven by God and you will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire!

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” (Rev. 22:18-21)

WHILE WE ARE WAITING FOR THE END TO COME

This is not an uplifting article, but it might just save your soul so that you have eternal life in heaven. While we still have freedom, food and jobs, let us use every moment to invest in the kingdom of God.

  • He who wins souls is wise. (Prov. 11:30)

  • Let us lay up treasures in heaven. (Matt.6:19-21)

  • Let us not worry about tomorrow (Matt.6:25-34)

  • Let us do the work of Jesus. (Luke 10:1-2)

  • Work while there is still day. (John 9:4)

  • Tithe while you still have money. (Malachi 3:6-12)

  • Pray and fast for the light to break forth. (Isaiah 58:6-9)

God has given you a limited amount of time on earth. If you die before the Antichrist comes to power, you are still going to leave all your earthly possessions behind and there is nothing you will be able to take with you except what you invested in the kingdom of God.
