Christ’s Word REVEALS That “The Timing of the Rapture” is on
The LAST DAY -- NOT 1007 Years Before THE LAST DAY
When Man’s False Eschatology says the Pre-Trib Rapture Takes Place!!!
October 16, 2022
In my last Commentary I wrote from Christ’s Word how Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy contains the prophecy of the NEW COVENANT which is needed as a prerequisite to getting RAPTURED and entering HEAVEN when we die or when THE RAPTURE takes place – whichever one comes first!!!
And clearly -- Satan has been very successful at promoting THE LIE that Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy is NOT about JESUS CHRIST but about “THE ANTICHRIST.” And what just can’t be reiterated enough – is that those who have fallen for this LIE could very well be part of the DESOLATION that many even Professed Christians will come under when Christ Returns to Rapture us “Elect” on the LAST DAY of this Human Race because they have trusted in a FALSE GOSPEL and a FALSE ESCHATOLOGY. Which is WHY understanding what Daniel 9:24-27 REVEALS from Christ is so important. And CLEARLY what Christ REVEALS – is that it is the ONE PLACE in the WHOLE BIBLE that speaks of “a Prince” being “cut off” and then the New Covenant being confirmed -- it is NOT speaking about what “THE ANTICHIST” will do -- but what He as “the Messiah the Prince” has DONE!!!
In other words – there is only one place in the WHOLE BIBLE – ONLY ONE PLACE that speaks of the New Covenant that is needed to enter Heaven -- and that ONE PLACE is in Daniel 9:27 which speaks about JESUS CHRIST confirming the New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us in His Book of Life – NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN that Dispensationalists claim will be “THE ANTICHRIST” after the Pre-Trib Rapture and during 7 years of Tribulation – which is A LIE!!!
The 70th Week is not literally 7 years that the New Covenant is confirmed by Christ – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! -- but the whole New Covenant period from the Cross to THE CONSUMMATION of Christ’s ALREADY Restored Millennial Kingdom which began at His Ascension!!! And that means that the WHOLE New Testament is about the NEW COVENANT being confirmed by CHRIST with those of us 1/3 Remnant of this World that He had already decided before the foundation of the World would be saved. And what Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is confirming – is that what Christ’s Death accomplished at the Cross was to RESTORE the Kingdom of Heaven to His “Elect.” And this New Covenant that was strengthened by Christ’s Blood at the Cross is a “Will” or a “promise” that ensures our Eternal Life with Him in Heaven!!!
In other words – Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy prophesied what Christ DID – NOT what “THE ANTICHRIST” will do in the Future after a Mythical Pre-Trib Rapture!!! The Antichrist never strengthens a Covenant with anyone -- at least not according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! That’s WHY the only one who the Bible says “confirmed” any Covenant is “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And the only one who the Bible says “strengthened” a Covenant is AGAIN Christ “the Messiah” who CAME recorded in Daniel 9:27!!! Which means that The New Covenant is the Covenant made strong in Christ's Blood. He gave it it's strength – and it’s the most important focal point of the New Testament Era!!!
And to believe otherwise is to believe A LIE – for the Biblical interpretation of the 70 weeks of Daniel Chapter 9 -- is that the 70 weeks go from the command to build again the City -- to the Jubilee year -- to the coming of Messiah the Prince. And after 62 weeks “the Messiah the Prince is cut off” which was the crucifixion of Christ which had to occur for THE NEW COVENANT to be confirmed or strengthened by His work on the cross which lasts a CRYPTIC LENGTH of “one week.” And clearly – that "one week” has now turned into almost 2000 years of Church Outreach!!!
And during the END of the 70th Week Christ prophesied that we “Elect” living at the time of His 2nd Coming that He had chosen to save and whose souls were resurrected at the Cross would SEE “The Abomination of Desolation.” Which explains the “proper time” of this Great Tribulation when Christ has taken His restraint off of SATAN and LOOSED him and his 200 MILLION DEMONS from HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle which must take place BEFORE THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!!
And SADLY -- Man’s False Eschatology is TODAYTOTALLY IGNORING this very important SIGN that the Great Tribulation will BEGIN when we “Elect” living right before His 2nd Coming SEE – AND ARE NOW SEEING that Christ has taken His restraint off of Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle when we read: “So when you see standing in The Holy Place (which stands for the Apostate External Global Harlot Church described in The Book of Revelation!!!) ‘The Abomination that causes Desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel” (Matthew 24: 15) – THEN we “Elect” will KNOW that the Great Tribulation has begun -- and that SALVATION has ceased and that the END-TIME JUDGMENT of Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon has also started!!!
In other words -- “the shattering of the Holy People” that Christ had Daniel prophesy recorded in Daniel 12:7 is taking place NOW in this prophesied time of GREAT TRIUBLATION when Christ Himself prophesied what would happen to us “Elect” before His 2ndComing when we read: “Then they will deliver you up to Tribulation and kill you, (which has now turned into GREAT TRIBULATION!!!) and you will be hated by all Nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many False Prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because LAWLESSNESS will abound, the love of many will grow cold. (which is a result of the “falling away” from the faith and upholding Christ’s True Gospel!!!)
FORTUNATELY – Christ REVEALED to Daniel and then in His Apocalyptic Discourse of Matthew 24 this very important TRUTH: “But he who endures to the end shall be saved. (which is the 1,335th Day that Daniel speaks of in Daniel Chapter 12 that describes the END of this Great Tribulation!!!) And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the Nations, and then the end will come” . . . . . “Therefore when you see the ‘Abomination of Desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the Holy Place” (whoever reads, let him understand)” (and what they are to UNDERSTAND is that the Great Tribulation has BEGUN and Christ’s 2nd Coming is “coming quickly” now!!!) (Matthew 24:9-16)
According to Christ “The Timing of the New Covenant Week”
Prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Began at The Cross and is NOT a FUTURE Prophecy
Only For THE JEWS!!!
CLEARLY – if one has the Spiritual eyes given to them by Christ – it’s hard NOT TO SEE that we “Elect” are SEEING “The Abomination of Desolation” of SATAN NOW LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD. And what Christ wanted us “Elect” to understand by His LOOSING OF SATAN – is that THE JUDGMENT of Satan and his “Political and Religious Elites” in his Kingdom of Babylon is well deserved!!! For there is just NO END in sight of the slavery they have in store for us “Elect” by their enforcing their Evil “2030 Agenda”!!!
That’s WHY Christ REVEALED to John that when Satan took his seat in the External Global Harlot Apostate Church which John saw would be “riding THE BEAST SYSTEM” of Satan and his confederated United Nations – that he would lead them all in this Final Spiritual Battle against Christ and those of us in His Kingdom of Heaven!!! And just as Christ had Daniel prophesy and as we read in Daniel 12:7 -- in this GREAT TRIBULATION “the power of the Holy People is NOW being shattered and broken” as we CHRISTIANS are being persecuted and reviled and martyred for standing up for THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel now at His 2ndComing which is FORESHADOWED by what took place to the Christians who followed Christ at His 1st Coming. And because of the GREAT APOSTASY that’s WHY there is a famine of hearing the Word of God so that there is no “gift or sacrifice in the Temple” – which means that Salvation has ceased just as Daniel 9:27 prophesies. And this “abomination” has now left the Temple “desolate” which is just what
Christ also prophesied!!!
But lest we forget -- THANKFULLY Christ gave HIS WORD that He would shorten these days of GREAT TRIBULATION -- for if these days weren't shortened -- there would be no flesh on earth left to be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY!!! And we can see that being fulfilled as Mankind is on the brink of WWIII and Nuclear Annihilation!!! But for “the Elect's” sake these days are shortened and THERE WILL BE A RAPTURE SOON!!! Which will END with THE CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom just as was also prophesied in Daniel 9:27.
And because according to Christ “The Timing of the New Covenant Week” prophesied in Daniel’s 70thWeek BEGAN at The Cross and is NOT a FUTURE Prophecy
only for THE JEWS – that’s WHY in this Commentary Christ has put a burden on my heart to continue writing what His True Gospel and “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology teaches about the 70th Week of Daniel. That it is the New Testament/Covenant Week that prophesied His 1st Coming when He CAME as “the Messiah the Prince” recorded in Daniel 9:27 to confirm His New Covenant with “the many” of us that He had already decided would be saved before the foundation of the World. And it’s WHY clearly the 70th Week could not start until AFTER Christ was “cut off” or crucified and had secured this New Covenant for His “Elect” which fulfilled what He said at the Last Super when Christ Himself spoke of how important the NEW COVENANT was to Him by prophesying: “For this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28)
How Christ’s Word Likens “The New Covenant” to a “Will”
Which is a Prerequisite to Inherit Eternal Life!!!
Living in this time of Great Apostasy – it’s not surprising to hear even Professed Christians question WHY it’s so important to understand what Christ taught about the New Covenant!!! In other words -- WHAT DOES IT MATTER anyway”???!!! For the ever-so-popular Gospel of “FREE WILL” today teaches that all one has to do to inherit Eternal Life in Heaven is just to “SAY” they are a Christian and they have a one-way ticket to Heaven where they will live for all Eternity. Needless to say -- the reason WHY “the Free Will Gospel” has become so popular – is because most people could really care less about any DETAILS of what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches about the New Covenant. They just want to feel somewhat assured that they are NOT going to HELL when they die!!! And so -- they question if what Christ taught about the New Covenant REALLY MATTERS to their Salvation???!!! When it matters alright!!! For Christ wrote the names of those on this “Will” of the New Covenant before the foundation of the World which promises the inheritance of Eternal Life. And if anyone’s name is NOT on Christ’s Will of the New Covenant -- they aren’t TRULY SAVED – it’s just that simple!!!
What they have is the NAME of Christ. And they are the ones that John was told NOT to measure in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11. For while they reside in the “outer court” -- all they really want is to be linked with the Temple – NOT to abide within the “strict dimensions” which Christ has established for His ONE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS starting with the 10 Commandments!!! And that’s WHY spiritually -- they are deluding themselves because their souls were NOT RISEN WITH CHRIST at the Cross meaning that He never chose to save them!!!
In other words –they are lying to themselves as we read in 1st John 2:3-5 by even linking themselves to the Temple without truly being IN CHRIST which is the ONLY WAY to Salvation!!! THINK ABOUT IT -- all they REALLY have by “saying that they are a Christian” is a name and an external Covenant association with Christ – NOT a true relationship with Him which one gets when Christ saves them and gives them a New Covenant Relationship with Him. For CLEARLY – the True Gospel of Christ teaches that NO ONE can save themselves by their own “FREE WILL”!!! And so -- these “so called said Christians” have no “seal” of God as we read in Revelation 7 – or “the power of Christ’s Name.” NOT to mention NONE of the righteousness which comes with True Salvation by having Christ write our Names on His Will of the New Covenant.
For as Christ’s Gospel teaches -- the inheritance of ETERNAL LIFE was lost at the Fall of Mankind in the Garden of Eden and that’s WHY Christ had to come to Earth to restore His Kingdom to its rightful heirs at the CROSS. And those “rightful heirs” are the 1/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He had chosen to save before the foundation of the World. And clearly -- the true test of Salvation is whether one believes Christ’s TRUE GOSPEL that Christ’s Kingdom was restored and inaugurated at the Cross when the souls of this 1/3 Remnant from the whole World’s population were risen with Him when He rose from the Dead and their sins were purged from them!!!
For according to Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology -- He is DEFINITELY NOT coming back to purge the sins of anyone in a “different way”-- including the 15.2 Million Jews left in the World in this 21stCentury – HARDLY!!! Everyone who was ever saved was saved by Christ’s death on the Cross – there’s NO OTHER WAY of Salvation. And THINK ABOUT IT – if Christ’s Kingdom has NOT been restored yet – then NO ONE’S SINS
have been purged yet!!!
To be TRULY SAVED one has to accept that Christ FULFILLED the points outlined in Daniel 9:24 for EVERYONE of us in His Book of Life when He came as “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in Daniel 9:27 to confirm His New Covenant with “the many” of us “Elect” whose names were written on His Will!!! And clearly – because the Salvation and the Judgment of this WHOLE HUMAN RACE took place at the Cross when the saved souls of the 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population were resurrected with Christ – the unsaved souls who were NOT resurrected do NOT have a New Covenant Relationship with Christ and DO NOT have their names written on Christ’s Will which
ensures Eternal Life!!!
And CLEARLY -- it is The Spiritual Israel of God – NOT the LITERAL Nation of Israel in the Middle East which are those of us “saved Jews of the Spirit” that Christ had Paul write were saved at the Cross when our souls were resurrected when He was resurrected when we read: “And this I say, that the COVENANT, that was CONFIRMED before of God IN CHRIST, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.” (Galatians 3:17)
This prophecy clearly teaches that The New Covenant was Confirmed IN CHRIST and was NOT made of non-effect by the Law. For THINK ABOUT IT -- the promise of Eternal Life for us “Elect” was made BEFORE the Law was even given to Moses. In other words – according to Christ’s Gospel of SALVATION we “Elect” were chosen to be born of Christ before the foundation of the World!!! And CLEARLY – the New Covenant CONFIRMED – or [prokauroo] which means it was made authoritative by Christ’s death on the Cross. And it cannot be disannulled because Christ Himself is its STRENGTH!!! And because Christ’s Death made the New Covenant AUTHORITATIVE – that’s WHY it is needed as a prerequisite of entering Heaven. For anyone NOT having this New Covenant is still in THEIR SINS and
Not Everyone Has Their Name Written on Christ’s Will
But only “the many” Prophesied in Daniel 9:27
HONESTLY -- the advancing of Christ’s Kingdom was never prophesied to be such that the New Testament Church would one day make the world righteous – HARDLY!!! That would be a contradiction of what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah when He had Zechariah prophesy that only a 1/3 REMNANT of this World would ever be saved. For even in the Old Testament Days only a REMNANT of the Hebrew people were actually saved!!! That’s WHY it was prophesied that the Messiah would make righteous an “Elect” remnant from this World’s population whom God would save through His drawing and calling us with the preaching of His Disciples and those of us saved after the Great Commission began.
And it’s also WHY the Evangelization of the world was NEVER Christ’s DIVINE PLAN – EXCEPT -- as it is defined by the measured Choosing of a remnant from every race and tongue and people in ALL the Nations of the world. And it’s also WHY what Christ wanted to convey with having John prophecy that Christ came to save the world – was that He only came to save an “Elect” 1/3 Remnant of this World -- NOT everyone in the world!!!
THINK ABOUT IT – NO ONE should be surprised to know that the Pharisees and the Sadducees who said right to Christ’s face that His Word was NOT TRUE and that He was possessed by a DEVIL – NEVER had their names written in Christ’s Will of Eternal Life!!! For if Christ had chosen to give them a New Covenant Relationship with Him then He wouldn’t have called them “The Children of the DEVIL”!!! And while we are ALL SINNERS – it is only through Christ’s Mercy and GRACE that He chose to save even a 1/3 REMNANT of us out of this sin-cursed World. And THANKFULLY this 1/3 Remnant have had CHRIST’S WORD that even in the midst of this desperately wicked world that He would build His True Eternal Universal Church which He has NOW successfully built. And clearly the gates of Hell HAVE NOT prevailed against Christ’s True Church for almost 2000 years now!!! And going forward in this time of prophesied GREAT TRIBULATION we also have CHRIST’S WORD that Satan will NOT prevail against THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST right up until the very LAST DAY of this Human Race!!!
That’s also WHY the theme of the Kingdom of God is found in both the Old and the New Testaments – for it embodies the DIVINE PURPOSE of God for man in Heaven and Earth. And it’s WHY The Kingdom is spoken of both as the present realized rule and reign of Christ in His Restored Millennial Kingdom– along with the teaching of the Kingdom from the perspective of being our Future Estate in the New Heavens and the New Earth after this World ENDS. For Heaven is the “Promised Land” that we “Elect” will spend eternity with Christ in His Kingdom. And while the WHOLE New Testament is about Christ “confirming” His New Covenant with “the many” of us written upon His Will -- suffice it to say in this Commentary I only have time to explain the analogy that Christ gave to us “Elect” of THE NEW COVENANT that REVEALS that it is a will of our Eternal Inheritance
For clearly -- Christ taught that for us that He has confirmed His New Covenant with -- that we have ALREADY received this Promised inheritance by His dying on the Cross to pay for our sins so that we could have Eternal Life. And what’s important to understand – is that while the inheritance is ours from the moment of Christ’s Death on the Cross – we don’t take possession of the inheritance until Christ saves each of us in our own lifetimes. For that is when Christ translates our saved souls into the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we dwell with Christ until we die here on Earth.
In other words – when Christ died and left us the inheritance of the Kingdom -- it is lawfully ours right now but also reserved for us undefiled in Heaven as Christ had Peter prophesy when we read: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in Heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” (and what Peter is saying is that when Christ is REVEALED from Heaven at His 2nd Coming on the LAST DAY – THEN we will receive our inheritance when Christ Raptures us!!!) (1st Peter 1:3-5)
So -- we both realize the Kingdom NOW TODAY existing in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – yet we have CHRIST’S WORD that we will receive Eternal Life at THE CONSUMMATION when we “Elect” are RAPTURED to the New Heavens and the New Earth!!! And there are many Scriptures which teach that we exist in “the present realized Kingdom reign of Christ” waiting for Christ to DEFEAT SATAN in one LAST SPIRITUAL BATTLE when THEN we will be Raptured when we read:
“Then THE END (meaning the END OF THE WORLD!!!) will come, when He hands over the Kingdom to God the Father AFTER He has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. (in this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE OF TODAY!!!) For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.” (1st Cor. 15:24-26)
CLEARLY – Christ has Paul REVEAL that He was reigning AT THAT TIME when He had Paul write that for Him -- and that He also WILL REIGN until the very LAST DAY of this Human Race!!! For the Kingdom of God is represented in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who reign as Kings and Priests unto God on Earth NOW because He dwells within us as we are His representatives and His TRUE PROPHETS on Earth. In other words – we in “The Spiritual Israel of God” are THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And because the Kingdom is SPIRITUALLY within us because Christ’s Holy Spirit dwells within us -- we are existing on this Earth reigning with Christ NOW in the SPRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” which Christ called His “City on the Hill”!!!
And according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology-- THE END of this World will take place at THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY when we “Elect” will no doubt be RAPTURED in a “Chariot of Fire” just like Christ picked Elijah up in when we will THEN reign with CHRIST for ALL ETERNITY after THE RAPTURE in the New Heavens and the New Earth. And the time when Christ’s Army of “CHARIOTS OF FIRE” will be REVEALED is fast approaching!!!
SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST”
NOT “The Covenantor” of “The Will” Prophesied
in Daniel 9:27
I would be remiss if I didn’t show in Christ’s Word before I finish this Commentary how Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is the Scripture in the Gospel of Christ that teaches that HE WAS “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME to make the New Covenant strong and authoritative at the Cross which fulfilled the 1st Half of The New Covenant prophesied in Daniel 9:27. This is what Christ did – NOT what “THE ANTICHRIST” will do in the Future AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture as Dispensationalists teach. For NOWHERE in Scripture does anyone strengthen a Covenant by being “cut off” for their people except JESUS CHRIST!!!
And it’s sad indeed that Dispensationalists just like the Pharisees, and the Sadducees did before them – are still to this day REFUSING to believe that there is only ONE who the Bible says “confirmed” any Covenant – and that is in Daniel 9:27 which is prophesying that Christ would be “the Messiah the Prince” who would come to make a NEW COVENANT with “the many” of us in His Book of Life. In other words -- Christ is the only ONE who the Bible says “strengthened” a Covenant – NOT “THE ANTICHRIST”!!! Which comes down to WHO arewe going to believe -- the ever-so-popular but FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of Man -- or CHRIST’S WORD???!!!!
The New Covenant is the Covenant made strong in Christ's Blood -- He gave it it’s strength. And that’s WHY it’s so important to not only understand that the New Covenant is a “Will” but also CHRIST’S WORD that by His Death on the Cross that He paid for our sins and we now have Eternal Life. And it’s also WHY it’s so important to BELIEVE that there is only one place in the WHOLE BIBLE – ONLY ONE PLACE that speaks of the New Covenant that is needed to enter Heaven. And that ONE PLACE is in Daniel 9:27 which speaks about JESUS CHRIST confirming the New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us in His Book of Life – NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN that Dispensationalists claim will be “THE ANTICHRIST” after the Pre-Trib Rapture and during 7 years of Tribulation – which is A LIE!!!
The 70th Week is not literally 7 years that the New Covenant is confirmed by Christ – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! -- but the whole New Covenant period from the Cross to THE CONSUMMATION of Christ’s ALREADY Restored Millennial Kingdom which began at His Ascension!!! And it’s WHAT Christ wanted us to understand in the Book of Hebrews – that the “Will” or New Covenant was of “no force” while “the Covenantor” was still alive -- but only after Christ’s DEATH was the New Covenant which takes away our sins strengthened and confirmed!!! And it’s WHY we read in Daniel 9 Christ prophesying that He as “the Messiah” would strengthen the Covenant for “many” for one week which is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE for the whole Gospel Era which has now lasted almost 2000 years. In other words -- CHRIST was “the Covenantor” of this very important “will” in Hebrews Chapter 9:16 when we read in
a few different translations:
“For where a covenant is, there must also of necessity be the death of the covenantor. For a Covenant is of FORCE (only) AFTER men are dead: otherwise it is of no Strength at all while the covenantor liveth.” . . . .and we also read that “In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it.” But whichever translation one reads -- the point is clearly made that the person making the “will” or covenant has to DIE for it to be enforced!!!
And clearly -- Christ’s Word and True Gospel REVEALS that the New Covenant had NO STRENGTH until Christ died on the Cross for the sins of His “Elect” and “chosen” 1/3 Remnant of this World. For it was HIS DEATH that made it strong and official. And that’s WHY understanding that The New Covenant is a “will” and a promise or an agreement to hand over the inheritance of the Kingdom of Christ to the TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD is so very important!!! And WHY in order for it to be confirmed and take “effect” the Messiah the Prince” who was prophesied to COME in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy had to die in order for us to receive the inheritance in that “will” which was “ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven”!!! And because the Pharisees and the Sadducees along with most of the Jews were looking for a “Political Elite” who would be their Messiah and Savior that would overthrow the oppressive Roman Government – the idea of someone dying for their sins to save them was TOTALLY unacceptable to them which is WHY THE JEWS for the most part REJECTED Christ’s True Gospel!!!
For what they wanted was someone to take care of their Political situation and NOT A NEW COVENANT that takes away sin when they were taught that just being born of Jewish Descent and God’s “Chosen people” that they already HAD ETERNAL LIFE and would go to Heaven when they died if they faithfully kept the LAW. And that’s WHY they just couldn’t understand that Christ came to become THE LAW and that His DEATH would FREE a remnant of us that He had chosen to save from the LAW!!! And its WHY Christ had Paul prophesy THIS TRUTH about SALVATION when we read:
“(It is) Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you FREE FROM THE LAW of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:2-4)
That is what Christ did at the cross -- He paid for our sins and confirmed the New Covenant with “the many of us” as we read in Daniel 9:24-27 when only a 1/3 REMNANT of this Human Race as He REVEALED to Zechariah in Zechariah 13:8-9 was saved. And He has been saving “the many” of us in His Book of Life during this “one week” which is Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and FREEING us from THE LAW and from the Bondage of SATAN AND SIN. And the MOST IMPORTANT TRUTH of all is that logically and Biblically we see that this also proves that the length of “the 70th Week” of Daniel’s prophecy is from the Cross until the End of the World at Christ’s 2nd Coming because that is the time of that Christ has been confirming or strengthening the New Covenant which is His “Will” of RESTORING the inheritance of Eternal Life back to us when Satan took over the Spiritual dominion of this World in the Garden of Eden.
And what’s even more important to understand is that the efficacy of this New Covenant reaches all the way back to Noah as it reaches all the way forward for us “Elect” today because Christ only had to die ONCE to give it strength which is described in Hebrews Chapters 8 and 9. And in these Chapters Christ makes it abundantly clear that He is speaking of the NEW COVENANT which He made with “the many” of us before the foundation of the World and WHY it includes both a Remnant of Old and New Testament people who were “the Elect and Chosen” from every race and Nation when we read in Hebrews 8:8-13:
“The days are coming, declares the Lord,
with the people of Israel
and with the people of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they did not remain faithful to my covenant,
and I turned away from them,
declares the Lord.
This is the (New) Covenant I will establish with the people of Israel
after that time, declares the Lord.
I will put my laws in their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest.
For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”
By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.”
These verses were fulfilled in the New Testament words of Christ when He said at the Last Super: “For this is My blood of the NEW COVENANT, which is shed for (the) many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28) And those words of Christ FULFILLED Daniel’s Prophecy of the New Covenant of Daniel 9:27 when we read: “And He shall confirm the (New) Covenant with (the) many for one week.” (Daniel 9:27) And it can’t be reiterated enough that “the many” includes everyone that Christ has saved by His GRACE regardless of their RACE!!! And it also reinforces that the 70th Week of Daniel is NOT a LITERAL week in the FUTURE meant only for THE JEWS’ SALVATION after the Pre-Trib of THE CHURCH takes place as Dispensationalists teach!!! For the whole Gospel Era of Church Outreach covers almost 2000 years now when Christ has been confirming His New Covenant of Grace with those of us in His Book of Life – which includes BOTH Jews and Gentiles!!!
CLEARLY -- that means that the True Gospel of Christ teaches that there is NO Future 7 years of Tribulation based on the Future fulfillment of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy for THE JEWS as Dispensationalists teach!!! And it also means that there is NO Pre -- Mid -- or Post Tribulation – but just this time of GREAT TRIBULATION that Christ prophesied EVERYONE on Earth would be in and are IN RIGHT NOW!!!
Christ Has ALREADY Inaugurated His Restored Kingdom at The Cross
Which is WHY He is NOT Coming Back to Reign on This Sin-Cursed Earth
For Yet another 1000 Years After the Pre-Trib Rapture!!!
THANKFULLY – we “Elect” will not ALWAYS have to exist in these bodies of sinful flesh – and so we also see the Kingdom of Heaven from the perspective of the inheritance that we will receive after THE CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Kingdom on the LAST DAY. Which is when Christ will give to us “Elect” a new resurrected body like His when He as THE TRUE ISRAEL will return just as He went away. And that is WHY He told His Disciples at His Ascension that we at His Return would PHYSCIALLY possess that which is already ours. This is THE CONSUMMATION of the Bride as we join Christ and will be like Him. And the perspective of THE CONSUMMATED KINGDOM can be seen in passages found in Corinthians when Christ had Paul prophesy about TODAY:
“I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a MYSTERY: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed -- in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMPET (on the LAST DAY!!!). For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
(1st Cor. 15:50-54)
This is the Kingdom of Heaven from the perspective of after THE CONSUMMATION. So -- the Kingdom of God that we are of now will eventually be delivered up to God to its final state. And this state is the Kingdom that “flesh and blood cannot inherit.” It is the Kingdom “in” Heaven where there is NO SIN!!! And so clearly -- we see that the Kingdom is both NOW -- and it’s also the state which we will be in after this Earthly life which “Flesh and blood cannot inherit” because it is a Future Kingdom where Christ is preparing a NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH since this existing one is going to be destroyed by FIRE at His 2nd Coming. And that is yet another direct contradiction to the teaching of the Pre-Trib Rapture Theory of Dispensationalism which teaches that Christ’s Kingdom won’t even be inaugurated until AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture – and after 7 years of Tribulation – when Christ will FINALLY reign on Earth for 1000 years – REALLY???!!!
In all due respect – the Eschatology of Dispensationalism is NOT CHRIST’S TRUE ESCHATOLOGY!!! For Christ’s True Eschatology EXPLICTLY teaches that the Future Kingdom in Heaven is THE CONSUMMATION of what has ALREADY been established here on earth. And the analogy that Christ uses is of a Bride who is already married but hasn’t yet consummated her marriage. In other words – while she is technically married – the marriage will be CONSUMMATED when she actually becomes ONE with her betrothed. And that is what Christ wanted to convey about the inheritance of the Kingdom that is already legally ours – for we reign in The Kingdom in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” NOW – and YET the consummated Kingdom is our final state when Christ Returns to take His Bride to Heaven at THE RAPTURE.
In other words -- we are positionally already saved -- and yet we will be saved from Hell at Christ’s return. Just as we have already been redeemed -- and yet also will be redeemed at Christ’s return. For Christ’s 2nd Coming is THE CONSUMMATION – THE CULMINATION – or the bringing to COMPLETION the REALIZED KINGDOM that we reign in now on Earth. And that’s WHY Christ’s True Gospel teaches that the resurrection from the dead when our saved souls were resurrected with Christ at the Cross is what made the Kingdom of God a REALITY -- and His coming again is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!!
As I’ve written in past Commentaries – I spent the better part of my now 74 years on this Earth attending Non-Denominational Churches where mostly Pre-Trib Rapture Enthusiasts attended – so in all due respect I understand what Dispensationalism teaches!!! But I seriously began questioning how it was that Christ’s Word prophesies over and over and over again about His Kingdom and yet He NEVER says one solitary word about His “alleged” Future Kingdom or reign on Earth at His 2nd Coming which is a major part of Dispensationalism????!!!
I mean – shouldn’t something as important as Christ returning to Earth to rule for a TEMPORARY 1000 years from a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem which Dispensationalists say is when the Kingdom will be “restored” to THE JEWS -- be a SIGNIFICANT part of His Gospel Message???!!! And yet Dispensationalists can only give a few verses in Revelation Chapter 20 of Christ physically descending to Earth again to rule from Jerusalem – REALLY???!!! WHY aren’t there thousands of verses written on this topic and NOT just a few verses???!!! And WHY does Christ have Paul prophesy that THE RAPTURE which is the FINAL DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” takes place on the VERY SAME DAY as THE JUDGMENT of Satan and those who are NOT SAVED if there is to be
1000 years in-between???!!!
HERE' WHY -- Christ’s True Eschatology makes it EXPLICITLY CLEAR that there is NO mention of 1000 YEARS between THE RAPTURE and THE FINAL JUDGMENT on the LAST DAY of this Human Race when He had Paul prophesy these Words “Which is manifest evidence of THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT of God, that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to REPAY with tribulation (and now GREAT TRIBULATION!!!) those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is REVEALED from Heaven with His mighty angels, in FLAMING FIRE taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the Glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” (2nd Thess. 1:5-10)
Not to mention that Christ had Peter prophesy that the World will be destroyed by Fire on “The Day of the Lord” just as He had Paul prophesy above is the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. And clearly Peter prophesied that there would be “scoffers” who would be DENYING ALL OF THE CONVERGING SIGNS of THE GREAT TRIBULATION that Christ prophesied would precede His 2nd Coming. And Heaven only knows that prophecy is being fulfilled today as Christ sends one Plague and Catastrophic Weather Disaster after another and 2/3 of the World’s unsaved population are BLINDED that we are even IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION. But Christ had Peter write to us “Elect” who are NOT BLINDED these Words:
“The present Heavens and Earth are reserved for FIRE, being kept for The Day of Judgment and destruction of the ungodly” . . . . But The Day of the Lord will come like a thief. (which is what Christ also had Paul prophesy above!!!) The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by FIRE, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live Holy and godly lives as you look forward to The Day of God and speed its coming. That Day will bring about the destruction of the Heavens by FIRE, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a New Heaven and a New Earth, where righteousness dwells.”
(2nd Peter Chapter 3)
These verses are among MANY that teach that Christ is NOT COMING BACK to be King in a Kingdom that HAS NOT been restored or inaugurated yet – HARDLY!!! For these verses clearly teach that when Christ Returns on the LAST DAY it will be to DELIVER and RAPTURE us “Elect” before the LAST 7th PLAGUE is poured out on SATAN and those in his Kingdom of Babylon!!!
Christ is Setting Up Today’s FINAL DELIVERANCE
Just Like He Set Up The Deliverance in Moses’ Day Which was
To “Gain Glory” and WHY THE RAPTURE is Going to Be Spectacular!!!
FORTUNATELY – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explains WHY people are “scoffing” today just as we read in 2nd Peter Chapter 3 – for there are MANY who have been BLINDED – some of which are Professed Christians who have fallen for the FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of Man!!! And that’s because False Prophets like Hananiah that Christ NEVER SENT have convinced His people to believe in THE LIE that they will escape this time of WORLDWIDE JUDGMENT called “Jacob’s Trouble” or “the Great Tribulation” which has TODAY come upon the WHOLE WORLD – even those of us “Jacobs” that Christ LOVES!!!
But the rest of the “scoffers” are in the group of 2/3 Remnant of unsaved in Satan’s Army which is called “The Kings of the East” who SATAN has now convinced to fight this Final Spiritual Battle and to GIVE their power and Authority to him. And this can only take place because CHRIST IS ALLOWING IT TO TAKE PLACE!!! And that’s WHY Christ had John prophesy that those in League with Satan -- who we now call “The Political and Religious Elites” -- have been DECEIVED to give their power to SATAN who is “THE BEAST” until Christ thoroughly DEFEATS Satan and his Army of “The Kings of the East” in this Final Spiritual Battle!!!
And rest assured that CHRIST’S DIVINE PLAN is for Satan’s people to be BLINDED in order for Him to bring Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” down to ruins when we read: “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. And the woman whom you saw is that Great City which reigns over the Kings of the Earth.” (which refers to the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon” where all those unsaved exist on Earth in their unsaved soul existence!!! And clearly this “Great City” includes the External Global Harlot Church that John saw “riding THE BEAST” of Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM. With SATAN now ruling over every Nation in the United Nations who he has NOW confederated against Christ’s Kingdom which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we “Elect” exist in our saved soul existence here on Earth fighting this Final Battle along with Christ!!!) (Rev. 17:17-18)
And so -- we’ve come to THE END of this Final Spiritual Battle which began in Heaven BEFORE the foundation of this World and then spilled over into Man’s dimension in the Garden of Eden and is coming to an END TODAY with the very real threat of Nuclear Annihilation!!! And it doesn’t matter if you call it “Armageddon” -- or “The Battle of Magog” whichever name you choose – for they are one and the same FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of today between CHRIST AND SATAN!!!
And one can’t help in reading about THE DELIVERANCE of the Red Sea WHY on Earth Christ had Moses take the Israelites on a path which led them to a place where they had the Red Sea stretching ominously out before them -- and Pharaoh and the Egyptian Army barreling down behind them. I mean -- the logical response would be “WHAT ON EARTH WAS CHRIST THINKING”???!!! For He led them to a place where it appeared that they had NO WAY OUT!!! When FORTUNATELY -- Christ had a DIVINE PLAN as their DELIVERER which FORESHADOWS this Final Deliverance that is about to take place any day now!!! And while I’ve run out of room and will continue writing about Christ’s Final Deliverance today in my next Commentary – we “Elect” need to read what Christ told Moses – for it showed how VERY MUCH IN CONTROL Christ really was when we read:
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon. Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are wandering around the land in CONFUSION, hemmed in by the desert.’ And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for Myself through Pharaoh and all his Army, (which was the purpose of His DIVINE PLAN which Christ told Moses was) so THE EGYPTIANS WILL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD.” (Exodus 14:1-4)
AND SO IT GOES TODAY – for CLEARLY – if you are wondering WHY otherwise highly educated “Global Elites” could have such UNSOUND REPROBATE MINDS as “the Political and Religious Elites” ruling this World today have – just know that Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is all explained in John’s 6th vision recorded in Revelation 17:17-18 above which assures us “Elect” that Christ is setting up Satan’s DEFEAT as He has put “the hooks in his Jaws” and has pulled him out of HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle which must take place BEFORE THE RAPTURE DOES!!! But I’ve run out of room and will continue with more next week!!!
