The “Gog Oracle” Given to Ezekiel Reveals That The Reason
For Christ’s 2nd Coming is to Defeat Satan Before
The Rapture of His “Elect” on The Last Day
December 17, 2020
When Christ had Ezekiel prophesy in the infamous “Gog Oracle” of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39 that He was “against Gog” – rest assured that Christ was NOT talking about One Particular Man of the Future who will be REVEALED AFTER the Rapture of the Church to all those “Left Behind” as “THE ANTICHRIST” – HARDLY!!! That’s Man’s False Eschatology – and even though this False Eschatology of Man has today sold MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Prophecy Books – it just does NOT depict who Christ REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John that “Gog” is AT ALL!!! That’s WHY if we want to know who Christ says “Gog” is -- then we should rely on Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions which Christ gave us concerning these End-Times – NOT on Man’s overworked imagination about who “THE ANTICHRIST” will someday be!!!
And clearly -- while Daniel was 1st given the interpretation of “Gog” in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream which portrayed a large statue in Human form that Christ REVEALED to Daniel was none other than SATAN – Ezekiel was also given a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the DEFEAT of “Gog” who is SATAN and the SUPREME ENEMY of Christ in the “Gog Oracle” – NOT One Particular Man of the Future!!! In other words -- it just can’t be DENIED that John’s 7 visions CONFIRM what both Daniel and Ezekiel understood from Christ – that “Gog” is SATAN who is the ULTIMATE ANTI-CHRIST and ENEMY of Christ and all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that have now been saved from SATAN – SIN – and the 2nd DEATH by Christ’s 1st Coming. And that’s WHY Christ had John paint the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Battle between Himself and Satan which took place even before the creation of the World and the Human Race.
And that Battle in Heaven between Christ and Satan without a doubt depicts the BEGINNING of Christ’s DEFEAT of Satan that will NOT END until the 2nd Coming of Christ. For Christ knew that Satan’s REBELLION and WAR against Him which was WON in Heaven -- would spill over into Man’s Dimension after Satan was cast out of Heaven. But regardless of Satan’s EVIL DEEDS and Plan to DEFEAT Christ and to take His place as GOD – Christ’s DIVINE PLAN was to deliver a 1/3 Remnant out of this World that He had ALREADY decided would be saved before the foundation of the World. And that this 1/3 SAVED Remnant would take the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven that Christ is the ONE TRUE GOD to every Nation in the World. And THANKFULLY Satan’s Plan to DEFEAT Christ did not succeed – for now the True Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven has reached every Nation on the Earth which started with this WAR between Christ and Satan in Heaven when we read:
“And war broke out in Heaven: MICHAEL and His angels fought with THE DRAGON; and THE DRAGON and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in Heaven any longer. So the GREAT DRAGON was cast out, that serpent of old, called THE DEVIL AND SATAN, who DECEIVES the Whole World; he was cast to the Earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation 12:7-9)
CLEARLY – this is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ’s DEFEAT OF SATAN who is the “Great Dragon” and “THE BEAST” in not only these verses but in all of the visions that Christ gave to Daniel and Ezekiel and John. I mean – think about it -- Christ’s War has ALWAYS been with SATAN – NOT with One Particular Man of the Future – but with SATAN!!! And clearly -- both Satan and Christ are given CRYPTIC NAMES in Bible Prophecy. And in this particular Bible Prophecy of Satan being DEFEATED in Heaven even before the creation of the World and the Human Race --Christ is given the CRYPTIC NAME of “Michael” which means in Hebrew “He who is assuredly GOD”!!! But rest assured that is NOT the only CRYPTIC NAME that Christ is given – for He is also called “The Bright Morning Star” and “The Prince of Peace” to name just a few. While Satan is called by many CRYPTIC NAMES which include: “the Dragon” and “the serpent of old” who deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden – and “THE BEAST” who is also called “THE DEVIL” and “the little horn” and “Gog” and “the 8th King” along with being called “THE ANTICHRIST” in Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s many visions!!!
And make no mistake -- Daniel understood from Christ that SATAN was also the Man depicted in the Statue in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. And that the Neo-Babylonian Empire that was the 1st pre-eminent Kingdom depicted by the Statue in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was really under the rule of SATAN– NOT just King Nebuchadnezzar and NOT One Particular Man of the Future – BUT SATAN!!! For CLEARLY with this dream that Christ gave to King Nebuchadnezzar -- Christ was not only recognizing Nebuchadnezzar’s Great Power in this prophecy over the LITERAL Earthly Kingdom of Babylon – but He was also establishing King Nebuchadnezzar as a “type” of someone else who would have rule over ALL the people of the Earth irrespective of where they lived. And also over ALL the beasts of the Earth and the birds of the sky. But THINK ABOUT IT -- the scope of that kind of rule was much wider than any Earthly King had ever achieved in the past or COULD EVER ACHIEVE IN THE FUTURE!!!
In other words -- Christ was using this dream of SATAN in the form of a Statue of a Man to typify the successive Epoch rules of Satan on Earth from Daniel’s Day until TODAY. And that is WHY the real King of Babylon was Satan. For while King Nebuchadnezzar was the LITERAL King on Earth who represented the Head of Gold in the Statue of SATAN – it was really SATAN that was ruling the World at that time – NOT just King Nebuchadnezzar. And it is also WHY Satan was really “the Prince of the Medo- Persian Empire” depicted by the breast and arms of silver in the Statue of him. And it was Satan who REALLY had rule over the 3 Kingdoms that came after King Nebuchadnezzar. Which is WHY Satan is depicted as “the Prince of Babylon” – and “the Prince of Persia” – and “the Prince of Greece” -- and now “the Prince of The UNITED NATIONS.” For Christ was using the standout Nations of these 4 Epoch rules of SATAN in the Statue of him in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to convey what Christ later REVEALED to John in his 7 visions – that SATAN’S RULE throughout time is portrayed as “A BEAST with seven heads and ten horns”!!!
And John saw that this BEAST was SATAN who would MAKE WAR with Christ and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST before the LAST DAY when we read: “ It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and Nation. All who dwell on the Earth will worship him, whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:7-8)
This HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE depicts that “the 7 heads” represent the TOTAL 7 Epoch rules of Satan since the Fall of Mankind in the Garden of Eden with the last 4 Empires of Satan being -- Babylon – Persia – Greece -- and now the UNITED NATIONS as portrayed in Daniel Chapters 2 and 7. And CLEARLY -- the “10 horns” is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE meant to represent “10 Kings.” But rest assured that they are NOT any Particular LITERAL KINGS as Man’s False Eschatology portrays – for in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology they represent the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon the Earth which is sourced in “THE BEAST SYSTEM” ruled by “the Dragon” who is SATAN that Daniel and Ezekiel and John were ALL SHOWN would have a continuing rulership of the Governments and False Religions of this World until the 2nd Coming of Christ.
And this 4thvision of John that is recorded in Revelation Chapter 13 CLEARLY REVEALS that the unsaved in Satan’s Kingdom are worshipping SATAN through the World System which is also referred to as A BEAST because unsaved Mankind has placed Satan’s Governments on the throne of their hearts INSTEAD OF CHRIST. I mean – think about it – isn’t that what we are seeing TODAY that is happening now still at the 2nd Coming of Christ when unsaved Mankind wants the Government to take the role of GOD and not Christ???!!!
And that is WHY the “10 toes” of the feet that are partly of “iron” and partly of “clay” in Nebuchadnezzar’s Statue – is what we in this Final Apocalypse Generation should be the most concerned with. For the “10 toes” represent the “Kings of the Earth” who are the Political and Religious Leaders of the UNITED NATIONS of this World TODAY who are now in League with Satan during his Final Epoch rule of this World. And clearly -- we now see Satan and his DEMONS which “the iron” represents -- working through “the clay” -- which is the 2/3 Remnant of unsaved men and women in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great.” And this “mingling” of DEMONS with unsaved Mankind is Satan’s Plan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and to accelerate GREAT WICKEDNESS on Earth until the 2nd Coming of Christ.
And what is so very important to understand from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – is that in this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” which is also called “Armageddon” -- that Satan will be thoroughly DEFEATED by Christ and His Christian Army on Earth TODAY. And that concerns all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – for we are NOW IN THIS FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE when Christ has put “the hooks in the jaws” of Satan and drug him out of HELL along with his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight this Final Battle that must occur to fulfill the prophecy of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week!!! And while this is HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – Christ wanted us to understand that “THE BEAST” is none other than SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future!!!
Christ REVEALED that “Gog” is SATAN – and “Magog” is Satan’s Army on Earth
Made up of the 2/3 Remnant of This World That Christ Also Revealed
Who Were NOT SAVED but in League With Satan!!!
FORTUNATELY – we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST have Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions to explain to us that “THE BEAST” called by the name of “Gog” is NOT One Particular Man of the Future as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly -- but SATAN!!! And we NOW know that what Christ was trying to convey through the infamous dream that He gave to King Nebuchadnezzar – was that there was a King in the SPIRITUAL REALM who DID OBTAIN such rule and dominion over the Human Race along with the animal Kingdom that no Earthly King could ever obtain. And that King was of course SATAN who was successful in DECEIVING Adam and Eve in disobeying Christ in the Garden of Eden which led to the FALL of the Human Race and Satan inheriting SPIRITUAL DOMINION over all of God’s creation.
At least until this LAST 4th EMPIRE of Satan which we are living in TODAY when it was prophesied by Christ that Satan’s Final Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” would be brought down to ruins by the “FINGER OF GOD” just as Christ brought Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire down to ruins in Moses’ Day – and just as He brought King Nebuchadnezzar’s Evil Empire of Babylon down to ruins in Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day. For these Evil men were both “types” of Satan and their Evil Empires FORESHADOWED Satan’s Final 4th Empire that Christ is in the process of bringing down TODAY!!! And while ALL of Mankind FELL in the Garden of Eden – we now understand from what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah -- that He MERCIFULLY chose to save a 1/3 Remnant of this sin-cursed Human Race. And TODAY we 1/3 Remnant who were saved are now living in Satan’s 4th and FINAL Epoch rule of this World that will soon be brought to an END with Christ now dragging Satan out of HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that the WHOLE WORLD is engaged in TODAY to fulfill Prophecy!!!
AND HONESTLY – it would be hard to understand these End-Times without understanding what Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel in the HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of today’s Great Tribulation that is written in the infamous “Gog Oracle” of Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. For without a doubt -- we are the Apocalypse Generation who are witnessing Christ put “the hooks in the Jaws” of SATAN and drag him out of the Abyss which is HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that is causing today’s GREAT TRIBULATION for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – THINK ABOUT IT!!! But CLEARLY -- Ezekiel saw in his visions that Christ gave to him of these END-TIMES that this Final Spiritual Battle between Christ and Satan must occur BEFORE the Rapture on
“The Day of the Lord.”
In other words – both Ezekiel and John saw in their visions of these End-Times that the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” would be engaged in one LAST BATTLE of SPIRITUAL WARFARE with Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” which would NOT END until the very LAST DAY of this Present Age of Human History when Christ would END IT at His 2nd Coming. And rest assured that the REASON WHY we read that Christ has now drug SATAN out of HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle -- is because Satan would be more than content to rule this World forever which is WHY Christ paints the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Satan being DRUG OUT OF HELL against his will!!! For while it may NOT be Satan’s will for his rule of this World to END – it is certainly Christ’s DIVINE PLAN and WILL to End Satan’s rule of this World forever and one of the reasons for His 2ndComing!!!
And while I’ve written about the “Gog Oracle” in many past Commentaries – Christ keeps bringing to my mind that Satan has so thoroughly DECEIVED CHRISTENDOM today about the REAL REASON for His 2nd Coming -- that His Holy Spirit keeps prompting me to keep writing THE TRUTH about the “Gog Oracle.” For so many even Professed Christians have now been DECEIVED by Satan and the False Eschatology of Man to believe that the reason for Christ’s 2nd Coming is to save the Whole Nation of Israel En-Masse and then to set up a Restored Millennial Kingdom which will only last a temporary 1000 years on Earth after THE RAPTURE – I DON’T THINK SO!!!
For HONESTLY -- that is NOT what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches AT ALL!!! For Christ’s Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross is ETERNAL – NOT one that will last only for a temporary 1000 years which hasn’t even been inaugurated yet – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And it’s WHY NO ONE can understand THE CAUSE of Christ’s 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY if they do NOT understand what has become known as “The Gog Oracle” recorded in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. For what Christ meant to convey with this infamous “Gog Oracle” -- was that the Final Events of these End-Times would lead up to the TOTAL DEFEAT AND DEMISE OF SATAN on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. Which is also THE END OF THE WORLD leaving NO ROOM AT ALL for a Future TEMPORARY 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth reigning from a rebuilt 3rdTemple in Jerusalem. THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And in this Commentary I’d like to AGAIN give a brief outline of the 4 points that I have listed before in Ezekiel Chapter 38 and several points that are taken from Ezekiel Chapter 39 that REVEAL THE EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE RAPTURE that are taking place RIGHT NOW TODAY!!! But sadly – this is NOT what Man’s False Eschatology teaches by any stretch of the imagination which only proves that “The Gog and Magog” Battle is a FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word!!! For the World of Christendom is TODAY sadly under the “STRONG DELUSION” that THE RAPTURE will take place BEFORE this Final Spiritual Battle even begins -- which is A LIE!!!
And to disprove Man’s False Eschatology which Christ obviously knew would be causing this great “falling away” from His True Gospel before His 2nd Coming – Christ had Ezekiel REVEAL these 4very important points that REVEAL the Defeat of SATAN who is “Gog” by Him and His Christian Army that will NOT be RAPTURED until this Final Spiritual Battle is over. In other words -- Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel that Satan’s Army of “Magog” will come against Him and His Christian Army in one Final Spiritual Battle BEFORE the Rapture of the LAST DAY when we read these 4 points that describe:
1) The Conscription of “Gog” who is SATAN – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:1-9. In these verses Christ wanted to convey the “compulsory enrollment” of Satan’s Army called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog.” And clearly – that Army includes ALL of the antichrists and SONS OF PERDITION which make up of the 2/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He never chose to save out of this Human Race recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9.In other words – Satan didn’t choose this Army of “Magog” – he inherited those that Christ chose NOT to save who became part of his Kingdom of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in which they have existed on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence from birth to death.
2) the Motives of “Gog” – REVEALED to us in Ezekiel 38:10-13 convey to us that SATAN who is “Gog” has a high degree of Scriptural Knowledge – particularly End-Time prophecy when Christ had Ezekiel write of Satan that he was “wiser” than even Daniel and that “no secret was hid from him” as we read in Ezekiel 28:3. And certainly in his rise to power as the “little horn” we are told that he would understand “dark sentences” which refers to “deep and hidden knowledge” of the Bible as we read in Ps. 49:4. And now that he has risen to take his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Apostate External Global End-Time Church described in the Book of Revelation – Satan has ensured that his False Doctrines that most Congregations have adopted today which includes Man’s False Eschatology – appear theologically sound. When in all reality – they are nothing more than the “crafty distortions” of Christ’s True Eschatology of these End-Times!!!
3) the Advance of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:14-16 definitely prophesies the LAST DAYS of this Present Age of Humanity when Ezekiel is shown that the whole world will be engaged in the Final Spiritual Battle LED BY “GOG” WHO IS SATAN which i scausing this GREAT TRIBULATION that we are in NOW!!!
4) the Judgment of “Gog” – REVEALED in Ezekiel 38:17-22 describes Satan’s rise to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church of TODAY when Ezekiel saw in his visions that Satan will use his increased powers to NEUTRALIZE the witness of Christians everywhere by “silencing and killing” the “2 witnesses” that Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 -- which represent Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church on Earth today -- thereby cutting Christ’s Words of TRUTH off!!! And clearly -- ALL 3 of Christ’s True Prophets of these End-Times who were Daniel and Ezekiel and John among many other Old Testament Prophets -- were given SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE from Christ’s Holy Spirit that at the END of Satan’s Final 4th Epoch rule of this World that Satan will lead a Final Rebellion against Christ and those of us in “the Camp of the Saints” which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And they all understood from Christ that the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE would END by Christ pouring out THE WRATH of His Final 7th Plague upon Satan and his Army of False Prophets before casting them into HELL. In other words – they did NOT see the World ending AFTER a Future 1000 year reign of Christ with Christ PYSICALLY reigning from a LITERAL PHYSICAL TEMPLE in Jerusalem!!!
And CLEARLY the DEMISE of Satan is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 39 as Christ paints a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE for us of the outline of “The Slaying of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:1-8 – and “The Plundering of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:9-10 – followed by “The Burial of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:11-16 and “The Sacrificing of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:17-20. Andsuffice it to say -- that THE CENTRAL THEME of Ezekiel 39 is the DEFEAT of the False Prophets who are in League with Satan during this “little season” of Satan’s last Epoch rule of this Earth when “Darkness is again reigning” and CHRIST’S TRUTHS of these End-Times are all but being “cut off.” And this cutting off of THE TRUTH will NOT abate until Christ sounds the LAST 7th TRUMPET and steps back into Man’s dimension again which is called “THE RAPTURE”!!!
We are Living NOW in the 2ndHalf of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy
Which will End With the 2ndComing of Christ
CLEARLY – what Christ REVEALED to Daniel that would happen in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has ALREADY happened when we read in Daniel 9:24 that “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME to confirm His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us “Elect” in His Book of Life was CHRIST. And that means that all of the things concerning the dealings of Christ with His people -- who are the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He would save out of this World’s population -- were ALL FULFILLED IN CHRIST. For there is no denying that we read in Daniel 9:24 that transgression was restrained when Satan was BOUND and DEFEATED at the Cross. And that meant that the sins of us 1/3 Remnant were forgiven and reconciliation was made for us when everlasting righteousness was brought in through
Christ’s dying on the Cross in our place.
But we also read that Judgement came upon those in the Nation of Israel which refers to its “Blindness in part” when the prophesies were sealed up to those who REJECTED Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME and when Christ was anointed as the Most Holy. This is what Scripture tells us was determined to happen during the 1st Half of the 70 weeks of Daniel’s prophecy. And those things were FULFILLED for EVERYONE in Christ’s Book of Life when “the Messiah the Prince” who was Christ CAME to fulfill all of the things prophesied in Daniel 9:24 for those of us that Christ had saved before the foundation of the World. And the “part” of the Nation of Israel that were BLINDED were part of the 2/3 Remnant of this World whose names were NEVER written in Christ’s Book of Life because they were never intended by Christ to be saved.
And in this 70th Week Prophecy that was given to Daniel -- we read NOTHING about ALL of the Nation of Israel being saved after the Gentiles have come into the Kingdom of Heaven – NOR do we read that One Particular Man will become “THE ANTICHRIST” after the Rapture of the Church who will make a Peace Treaty with the Nation of Israel!!! So the question that Christians should be asking today is -- “Where does this False Eschatology of Man come from when it’s OBVIOUSLY NOT in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology???!!! And the answer is simple – it comes from Professed Christians who have been taught ERROR -- and who don’t even bother to check the Scriptures carefully to see if
Man’s Eschatology is true or NOT when compared to Christ’s True Eschatology.
For if they did check out Christ’s True Eschatology – they would understand that this 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which has now been FULFILLED prophesies “the time, times and a half” that we read about in Revelation 12 where “the Woman” -- which represents the True Spiritual Israel of God -- gives birth to Christ and spends a “time, times and a half” fed and nourished under the wings and protection of God away from the face of the serpent who is SATAN until the time of our testimony is finished.
And they would also understand that the CRYPTIC LENGTH of the 1000 years of Church Outreach prophesied in John’s 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 has ALREADY taken place!!! And CLEARLY – they would know that John saw that AFTER the 1000 years of Church Outreach -- which has now lasted over 2000 years since that was a CRYPTIC NUMBER – that THEN the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week would begin which is the time we are in NOW!!! And as Daniel saw in his LAST VISION of the Prophecies about these End-Times – it is in the middle of this 2nd “time, times, and a half” when a time of GREAT TRIBULATION and testing will occur which Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John will NOT END until the power of the Holy People has been “completely shattered” – REALLY!!!
For what we NEVER read from Man’s False Eschatology is THE TRUTH– that Christ had Daniel prophesy “the shattering” of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST during this this time of GREAT TRIBULATION – NOT THAT WE WILL BE RAPTURED BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And no doubt part of the “shattering” of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST has to do with our TESTIMONY being “silenced” and “killed” when Christ LOOSES Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. And according to what Christ REVEALED to Daniel this “short little season” will last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of “a times, times, and a half” which Daniel also was told was the CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days when we read:
“Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when He held up His right hand and His left hand to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the Holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.” (and that is obviously talking about Today’s Great Tribulation when the witness of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST has been “silenced and killed” – which is also the time when Christ will RETURN in all of His Glory to RAPTURE US on the LAST DAY!!!) (Daniel 12:7)
In other words -- Daniel’s LAST VISION recorded in Daniel Chapter 12 is speaking about the 1,335 days of Great Tribulation going on NOW when THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel has all but been “cut off” and THE CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross is about to occur. And this verse in Daniel about the END OF THE WORLD is CONFIRMED by what Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rdvision. For rest assured that the Old Testament CONCEALED is in the New Testament REVEALED when we read again that this Angel is more than likely Christ Himself prophesying THE END of the World when we read:
“The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up His hand to Heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created Heaven and the things that are in it, the Earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.” (Revelation 10:5-7)
The True Meaning of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy
And “The Mystery” revealed to Daniel and Ezekiel and John was that SATAN would be thoroughly DEFEATED BEFORE the 2nd Coming of Christ AFTER he had “shattered” Christ’s Holy People and had tried to DEFEAT us in every way possible. And what Christ was trying to REVEAL through Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy -- is that the 70 weeks goes from the command to build again the City of Jerusalem to the coming of “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME – and part of the reason for His COMING was to DEFEAT SATAN at the Cross!!! I mean – think about it -- this infamous week is not LITERALLY 7 years in the FUTURE and just for those in the LITERAL Nation of Israel as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – HARDLY!!! -- but a prophecy of the timing that the New Covenant is confirmed by Christ. Which covers the whole New Covenant and New Testament period from the Cross to THE CONSUMMATION that is ready to take place any day now!!!
CLEARLY -- Daniel saw that “the Messiah the Prince” would save his people from their sins in his vision of the 70th Week -- but he did NOT know that the “cutting off” that would confirm and strengthened the New Covenant of Grace would mean the CRUCIFIXION of Christ who was “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME. Nor did he know that “the many” in Christ’s Book of Life included not only the Hebrew people who were his people -- but the 1/3 Remnant that Christ later REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of every Nation on Earth!!! And TODAY we know thanks to this awesome 70th Week Prophecy given to Daniel -- that from the time of Christ’s Ascension that the New Covenant of Grace has been made with “the many” of us in Christ’s Book of Life from His Ascension until this time now when Christ’s 2nd Coming is right on the Horizon.
And now that it is pretty obvious that the Gospel has been taken to every Nation on Earth during this 70th week and Christ has saved His “Elect” and 1/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved – we should understand that Salvation has ENDED and Judgment has begun with “The Abomination of Desolation” standing in the Holy Place. For “The Abomination of Desolation” is a Prophecy of SATAN being LOOSED to take his seat in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” which Christ prophesied we “Elect” would see with our own eyes as A SIGN of His 2nd Coming!!!
And what we are seeing is that the GOSPEL TRUTH is NOT being taught in the Apostate Churches who have accepted Man’s False Eschatology as THE TRUTH. And that proves that the power of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST has indeed NOW been shattered as was prophesied in Daniel 12:7. And because of that -- there is a famine of hearing the Word of God. And CLEARLY – we are living in the time when Christ has saved all of His “Elect” and the Word of God is now NO LONGER being given to Salvation any longer – but unto JUDGMENT. And the Abomination of Satan ruling in the Harlot Church has now left the Apostate Congregation at Christ’s 2nd Coming DESOLATE which is just what happened at Christ’s 1st Coming when Satan was ruling then too BEFORE he was bound at the Cross. And Christ prophesied that if these days of Great Tribulation were NOT shortened -- there would be no flesh on Earth left to be Saved.
CLEARLY – that means that when sacrifice and offering has now ceased and Satan has now been LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD – it is a time of TRIBULATION so GREAT that Evil men in League with Satan could annihilate the whole world with Nuclear Warfare if they chose to do so!!! Which is WHY Christ prophesied that if He had NOT shortened these days of Great Tribulation then there would be NO ONE left to be Raptured. But FORTUNATELY for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST we know from Christ’s Apocalyptic Discourse that these days have been shortened – and that there WILL INDEED BE A RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!!
And that means that Daniel’s 70th Week is not LITERALLY a 7year Tribulation Period that occurs AFTER THE RAPTURE of the Church when halfway through a Covenant of Peace is confirmed by “THE ANTICHRIST” with the Nation of Israel in the FUTURE as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – HARDLY!!! For it just can’t be reiterated enough that the 70th Week Prophecy depicts the whole New Covenant period from the time of the Cross to the CONSUMMATION when Christ has been confirming His New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST for over 2000 years now!!!
And what is so important to understand CONTRARY to the ever-so-popular teachings of Man’s Eschatology today – is that there are NOT two separate Salvation programs with the Salvation of the Whole Nation of Israel yet to take place AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH – HARDLY!!! There is only one Salvation Plan -- for Christ only has ONE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS that make up the only Holy Nation He has ever had. In other words -- according to Christ’s True Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven – we Gentiles have not replaced the Nation of Israel – for we were ALWAYSINCLUDED in the Spiritual Israel of God which is the 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population that Christ chose to save before the foundation of the World.
For CLEARLY -- when Christ broke down the Middle Wall of Separation – BOTH Jews and Gentiles alike were RECONCILED TOGETHER into the same ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And that means that -- “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that there is only ONE BODY – ONE NEW TESTAMENT TEMPLE which is CHRIST – ONE SPIRITUAL CITY in which we saved souls have existed in on Earth which is “Heavenly Jerusalem” -- and ONE SALVATION PROGRAM for all of us in the True Spiritual Israel of God which was Christ dying on the Cross for our sins.
And when Christ REVEALED to John that the 2 Witnesses would be “killed and silenced” – it was confirming what Christ had ALREADY REVEALED to Daniel -- that Salvation would cease in the Middle of the 70thWeek after the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy of Church Outreach that has now lasted over 2000 years. In other words – both Daniel and John saw that the True Congregation of Christ would be overrun and given into the hands of SATAN when he would be LOOSED for a “time, times and a half” to fight TODAY’S FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE. And THE CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that Christ was painting through their visions was that when His True Eternal Universal Church’s testimony was finished after He had saved everyone in His Book of Life – that THEN Satan would be LOOSED and the Church’s testimony would be KILLED when the True Witnesses of Christ would be silenced which is the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “sacrifice and offering ceasing” prophesied in Daniel 9:27.
In other words -- what Christ was trying to convey through Daniel and John’s visions – was that The True Eternal Universal Church’s testimony will END because all of the Spiritual Israel of God who is to be saved will have been saved by Christ. And because of the overspreading of abomination that stands in the Temple of Christ which is SATAN who has NOW been LOOSED to take his seat in the External Global Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” – it has TODAY made The Temple “desolate even until the consummation” as we read in Daniel 9:27. And before the END OF THE WORLD comes and the FINAL JUDGMENT is poured out in the LAST 7th PLAGUE which is the LAST 3rd WOE – there will be this Final Spiritual Battle which is raging around the World today when Christ had Daniel prophesy about SATAN:
“He (referring of course to SATAN!!!) will speak against the Most High and oppress his Holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. (which is happening NOW with the laws pertaining to this ELECTION!!!) The Holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (which is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy going on NOW!!!) He will speak against the Most High and oppress his Holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The Holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.” (which again is this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan has been REVEALED as “THE ANTICHRIST” just as Paul prophesied in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 he would be!!!) (Daniel 7:25)
Christ’s True Eschatology Reveals That Everyone on Earth
Is in This Final Spiritual Battle!!!
HONESTLY -- the verses in Daniel 7:25 above PROVE that everyone on Earth is IN THIS FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE – for it is being fought between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ. And that SATAN will PREVAIL against us 1/3 Remnant for “a little season” which is this TIME NOW OF GREAT TRIBULATION when we are “given” into his hands for a “time, times and half a time” so that Prophecy can be FULFILLED. But if one reads the whole Chapter of Daniel 7 which is the 1st of the 4 visions given to Daniel about these END-TIMES – they will see that while Satan is waging WAR with us 1/3 Remnant that Christ has now saved – he will definitely NOT WIN. For while it is prophesied that SATAN WILL PREVAIL in defeating us – he will only prevail UNTIL the FINAL DELIVERANCE OF CHRIST on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Human History when his rule of this World will END with Christ’s DEFEAT OF HIM at His 2nd Coming!!! For we read that the Heavenly Court has ALREADY RULED that Satan will be DEFEATED and Christ will WIN this Final Spiritual Battle with this prophecy that Christ gave to Daniel:
“I was watching; and the same horn (which is “the little horn” who is SATAN!!!) was MAKING WAR against the saints, and PREVAILING against them, UNTIL the Ancient of Days came, and a Judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the Kingdom. . . . . . AND HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS!!! -- ‘But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever. (referring to Satan’s rule of this World!!!) Then the Kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the Kingdoms under the whole Heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His Kingdom is an Everlasting Kingdom, (referring to Christ’s Kingdom!!!) And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’” (which will of course take place in the New Heavens and the New Earth AFTER the Rapture on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!) (Daniel 7)
But what we do NOT know – is how long the CRYPTIC LENGTH of the 1,335 days that the Great Tribulation described in Daniel’s LAST VISION recorded in Daniel Chapter 12 will last in MAN’S TIME??!!!! While what we DO KNOW is that what we are witnessing is TRULY what Christ REVEALED to John would be the “FALL OF BABYLON” and the destruction of Satan’s ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT by THE VERY HAND OF GOD as we read recorded in Revelation Chapter 18!!! And because it is GOD’S WILL that Babylon will FALL – the WHOLE WORLD will fall never to recover because we are at THE END OF THE WORLD in Human History. And that means that this World is just NOT going back to “normal” because Christ has taken His restraint off of Satan and this World is TOTALLY under Satan’s control now. And the only thing left is for Christ to Return to END SATAN’S CONTROL of this World FOREVER.
That’s WHY “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that Babylon falls suddenly and that the destruction comes from WITHIN as we read: “And the ten horns which you saw on THE BEAST, these will hate the Harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their Kingdom to THE BEAST, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (Rev. 17:16-17)
And that’s also WHY it is pretty obvious now that we are heading for the LAST of the 1,335 days that Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his last vision was the CRYPTIC LENGTH of this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION recorded in Daniel Chapter 12. But since Christ knows the END FROM THE BEGINNING – that is WHY it is so vitally important that we should be LISTENING to His Holy Spirit and believing what is written in His True Eschatology – for MAN’S FALSE ESCHATOLOGY is never going to be fulfilled when it was NEVER PROPHESIED by Christ!!! I’M JUST SAYING!!!
Reprobate Mind is What “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” Represents
And That is The Mind That is Ruling This World Today!!!
As I’ve written many times before -- there is only ONE place in Scripture – ONLY ONE PLACE ACTUALLY IN THE WHOLE BIBLE that speaks of a Prince being cut off -- and then the New Covenant being confirmed. And that one place speaks about JESUS CHRIST – NOT a Future ANTICHRIST!!! And it is THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is the True Spiritual Israel of God who Christ has now “confirmed” the New Covenant of Grace with as Daniel 9:27 prophesied!!!
In other words – One Particular Man was NEVER prophesied by Christ to become “THE ANTICHRIST” after the Rapture of the Church who will make a Peace Treaty with the Nation of Israel. For Christ is the only one who has ever strengthened a Covenant -- at least according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology. And it can’t be reiterated enough today with Christ’s 2nd Coming so near -- that Christ has NOW CONFIRMED the Covenant in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy with EVERYONE in His Book of Life – proving that Man’s False Eschatology is just NOT TRUE when it prophesies that Daniel 9:27 is about a Future “ANTICHRIST” who not only will make a Peace Covenant with the Nation of Israel but will mark everyone with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” After the Rapture of the Church!!!
For CLEARLY – in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is a prophecy meant to demonstrate that this infamous mark is the mark of a REPROBATE MIND which everyone belonging to SATAN has who has Satan’s Antichrist Spirit. And because Satan is still “the ruler of this World” and “the God of this Age” of his Spiritual Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” – the 2/3 Remnant that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE belong to Satan and have his reprobate mind which is an UNAPPROVED MIND – and an UNSAVED AND FLAWED MIND which cannot make SOUND JUDGMENTS because it is a mind that has been SPIRITUALLY MARKED OF THE BEAST and invisibly marked by Christ to show that this 2/3 Remnant belong to SATAN.
In other words -- it just can’t be reiterated enough that John saw in his 7 visions that those with REPROBATE MINDS have ALREADY been invisibly marked by CHRIST with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” to show that these 2/3 Remnant do NOT belong to Him -- but to SATAN!!! For those belonging to Satan have a mind that is ANTICHRIST and ANTITHETICAL to the MIND OF CHRIST which is WHY John saw in his 7 visions that they will be AT ENMITY with Christ and those of us belonging to Christ until the very LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!
CLEARLY – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that we “Elect” will be going through this Final Spiritual Battle and that the LOOSING of Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY is what is causing this time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! And rest assured – Christ is NOT coming back to save anyone but to DELIVER His “Elect” and to give those of us with SAVED SOULS new resurrected bodies like His so that we can step into the New Heavens and the New Earth with Him which could happen any day now!!! But on that very same day when the RAPTURE OCCURS – John also saw that Satan and the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE will be JUDGED and cast out of Christ’s Kingdom FOREVER.
In other words – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that the reason for the 2ndComing of Christ is the CONSUMMATION – the CULMINATION – and the bringing to COMPLETENESS the realized RESTORED Millennial Kingdom of Christ that was inaugurated at the Cross. For Christ’s resurrection from the DEAD is what made the Kingdom of Heaven a REALITY – and His Coming AGAIN is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!!
And what Christ wants us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST to do in this prophesied time now of GREAT TRIBULATION is to align our will with HIS WILL in DEFEATING SATAN and those in League with him – for it is Christ DIVINE PLAN to bring Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” down to ruins just as He brought Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire to ruins in Moses’ Day at that TIME OF DELIVERANCE. So hang in there – this Final Spiritual Battle is NOT OVER YET until we hear Christ sound the LAST 7th TRUMPET when He will THEN call us HOME to the New Heavens and the New Earth which He has waiting for us NOW!!!
But until then – just know that I am forever in His Service in writing these End-Times Commentaries for Him . . . . . . . Mary Sullivan
