The Blessed Hope and Final Deliverance vs.
Satanic Bondage and the Final Day of Judgment
January 6, 2021
Living today at the beginning of this New Year – one would think at least in America that the World is divided between the Republicans and the Democrats who are waging WAR with each other as to who LEGALLY and LAWFULLY won the Presidential Election. And to be sure the Bible REVEALS that the World is most definitely divided -- but that Christ made that division when He chose to save a 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population to be in His Kingdom of Heaven and left the 2/3 Remnant that He chose NOT to save to be part of Satan’s Kingdom where they would be ruled over by Satan in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” until the Final Day of Judgment.
In other words -- the Bible explicitly teaches that Salvation was Christ’s CHOICE – NOT “Man’s Free Will Choice” when we read that Christ chose who would be saved out of this World’s population even before the World and the Human race were created according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! And that’s WHY some of the most important verses in the Bible are THE GOSPEL TRUTH that Salvation was by ELECTION and PREDESTINATION. For clearly – Christ taught through Zechariah that He would save only a 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population and had Zechariah prophesy from Him this very important TRUTH:
“And it shall come to pass in all the land,” Says the Lord, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one-third shall be left in it: I will bring the one-third through the fire, (And I) Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say,
‘The Lord is my God.’ ”(Zechariah 13:8-9)
HONESTLY – Christ couldn’t say it any clearer than that -- that only a 1/3 REMNANT was ever saved by Him at any time in Human History!!! And THINK ABOUT IT -- the whole Bible paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ DELIVERING this 1/3 Remnant from SATAN – SIN – and the 2nd DEATH since the Days of Noah!!! For CLEARLY -- Christ started His DELIVERANCE with Noah and his family who represented those of us 1/3 Remnant that He would save out of the Human Race with the Antediluvians representing the 2/3 Remnant who would NOT BE SAVED.
And CLEARLY -- after saving Noah and his family from the Great Flood – Christ next DELIVERED Lot and his 2 daughters out of Sodom and Gomorrah with its sinful and grossly immoral group of unsaved people. That deliverance was then followed by Christ delivering His People from 400 years of Egyptian Slavery from Pharaoh which FORESHADOWED His DELIVERANCE of the souls of every one of us 1/3 Remnant in His Book of Life on the Cross from SATAN’S BONDAGE and the 2nd Death which is being thrown into HELL on the LAST DAY.
But make no mistake -- the DELIVERANCE by Christ which started in Noah’s Day is not over yet – at least NOT until Christ thoroughly defeats Satan and those in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” in this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES!!! But sadly – now so much of Christendom has bought into THE LIE of Man’s False Eschatology based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism that teaches that THE CHURCH was NOT appointed to Wrath and that THE WRATH of God is THE GREAT TRIBULATION that we will be RAPTURED out of when we read:
“For God did not appoint us to WRATH, but to obtain Salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.” (but rest assured that THE WRATH in view here is the wrath of Christ’s Final Judgment on unsaved Mankind that will come on the LAST DAY of this Human Race when Christ returns to throw Satan and those in League with him into HELL for their sins!!!) (1st Thess. 5:9-10)
In all due respect – it’s HONESTLY a deceitful handling of the True Gospel of Christ when Dispensationalists use this verse to say that the Church will be RAPTURED BEFORE the Great Tribulation. For Christ would be contradicting His own Words if He meant that the “Elect” and “Chosen” 1/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved would NOT be going through a time of GREAT TRIBULATION. For He EXPLICITLY prophesied in His Apocalyptic Discourse recorded in Matthew 24 that we “Elect” would be going through a time of Great Tribulation and that THE RAPTURE would take place AFTER the Great Tribulation when we read:
“Immediately after the (Great) Tribulation of those days (which is the Great Tribulation prophesied to take place AFTER Satan is LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!) the Sun will be darkened, and the Moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from Heaven, and the powers of the Heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in Heaven, and then all the tribes of the Earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of Heaven with power and Great Glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His Elect from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other.” (and rest assured that Christ is talking about TODAY’S Great Tribulation in these verses!!!) (Matthew 24:29-31)
I mean – think about it – Christ said that when Satan is LOOSED to fight this Final Spiritual Battle -- that it would be a time of TESTING and TRIAL and Great Tribulation for the WHOLE WORLD as we read in John’s very 1st vision when John wrote from the Lord that if we “Elect” keep His Word then He will deliver us from
Satan’s DECEPTIONS when we read:
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the Earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” (Revelation 3:10-11)
This “hour of trial” that is TODAY’S GREAT TRIBULAITON is NOT the Final Judgment of the LAST DAY which is the wrath of God that the TRUE Eternal Universal Church of Christ is NOT appointed to. But there is coming soon a FINAL DAY of Judgment of the unsaved for their sins who were NEVER forgiven because Christ never chose to save this 2/3 Remnant. And of course the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved are not appointed to this FINAL DAY of WRATH from the Lord – while it was DEFINITELY prophesied by Christ Himself that we would be going through this GREAT TRIBULATION that would precede the Final Day of Judgment – which is going on NOW with the LOOSING OF SATAN!!!
What Christ was having Paul convey to those of us who would be alive to go through THE GREAT TRIBULATION TODAY -- was that if Christ chose to save us then we have ALREADY been delivered from HIS WRATH. And He had Paul prophesy that if we lived BEFORE His 2nd Coming then we would be on this Earth waiting for His FINAL DELIVERANCE on the LAST DAY when we read: “And to wait for his Son from Heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, who (HAS ALREADY!!!)delivered us from the wrath to come.”
(1st Thessalonians 1:10)
I mean – think about it -- Christ didn’t go to the Cross to DELIVER us from the GREAT TRIBULATION which He EXPLICITLY prophesied we “Elect” would be going through before His 2nd Coming – HARDLY!!! He went to the Cross to deliver us from being thrown into HELL for our sins!!!
In other words – we 1/3 Remnant have ALREADY been delivered from the wrath to come by His death on the Cross since THE WRATH to come is the Judgment of God for our sins!!!!
Satan Has Been LOOSED as a Final Judgment to DECEIVE THE NATIONS of 2/3 Unsaved Mankind After Rising to Take His Seat in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!
CLEARLY – Christ had John write of the DECEPTION of these last days of Human History when he saw in his 7 visions that Satan would be LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” to rule in the Apostate Congregation of the Harlot Church where False Prophets would DECEIVE MANY with their False Gospels and Man’s False Eschatology of these End-Times. AND WE ARE THERE!!!! Which is WHY Christ instructed us to pray in the Lord’s Prayer that we would be “kept” from the DECEPTIONS of Satan and his False Prophets who would be DECEIVING MANY as Christ prophesied and WARNED us going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4-5)
And now that it is pretty OBVIOUS that Christ has taken His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS from HELL to fight this Final Spiritual Battle – we should be praying our hearts out to be kept from “the Evil One” who is SATAN and the DECPTIONS that he is RIGHT NOW deceiving the 2/3 unsaved Remnant in all the Nations of the United Nations to fall for when He had John prophesy:
“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that THE ANTICHRIST is coming, even now MANY ANTICHRISTS have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that NO LIE is of THE TRUTH. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either;
he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.” (1st John 2:18-22)
REGARDLESS of what Man’s ever-so-popular FALSE Eschatology of Today teaches relentlessly -- that One Particular Man will be “THE ANTICHRIST” after the Rapture of The Church – Christ makes no such prophetic predictions AT ALL about just ONE Particular Man being REVEALED AFTER THE RAPTURE who will become “THE ANTICHRIST” – HARDLY!!! ON THE CONTRARY -- He had John clearly debunk the theory of “THE ANTICHRIST” being ONE PARTICULAR MAN!!!
Think about it – what Christ was having John prophesy was that the SPIRIT of Antichrist was present in his day and HAS BEEN and WILL BE present all throughout Human History in the disobedient minds and hearts of UNSAVED MANKIND who have
the SPIRIT OF SATAN which is ANTI-CHRIST!!!
In other words – One Particular Man was NEVER prophesied by Christ to be “THE ANTICHRIST”!!! But what was PROPHESIED BY CHRIST --was that unsaved Mankind IN PARTICULAR would be ANTICHRIST having the SPIRIT OF SATAN!!! And clearly -- John prophesied that MANY antichrists would come in the future because he had himself heard Christ prophesy that there would be MANY false Christs and False Prophets who would come to “DECEIVE many” before His 2nd Coming. But CLEARLY -- John DEBUNKED the LIE that there is only ONE PARTICULAR MAN who will be “THE ANTICHRIST” when even in his day there were already many antichrists. For John saw firsthand some of the most antichrist Human Beings that have ever lived on this Earth put Christ on Trial and then yell “Crucify Him – Crucify Him” before nailing him to the Cross –
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
The “Blessed Hope” is That we 1/3 Remnant that Christ has Saved will Not Have to Co-exist with Satan and the 2/3 Unsaved Remnant on this Earth For Much Longer!!!
It just can’t be reiterated enough that John did NOT deny the doctrine that the antichrist would come to prominence in the Future. For what Christ wanted to convey through John’s writings on “THE ANTICHRIST” – was NOT that One Particular Man will be REVEALED after the Rapture of the Church as so much of Christendom today has been DECEIVED to accept as THE TRUTH -- HARDLY!!! But that unsaved Mankind in particular would have the SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST when Satan is LOOSED near the End of this Present Age of Humanity to lead the FINAL REBELLION in this Final Spiritual Battle that is raging around the World TODAY!!!
And that’s SERIOUS!!! Because just as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah -- the unsaved Remnant amounts to 2/3 of the World’s population. And if one does the math – it means that we Christians are outnumbered by those in Satan’s VAST ARMY 2 to 1. In other words -- out of 7.8 Billion people – 5.2 Billion are in League with SATAN and only 2.6 Billion are in League with Christ!!! And the truth is – THE ANTICHRIST is exactly what the name implies –ANYONE who comes as anti or opposed to -- or as a false or substitute for Christ.
In other words – Christ’s True Gospel confirms that “the antichrist” is Satan manifesting himself in the disobedient. This spirit is seen in the character traits of the 2/3 Remnant out of this World’s population whose lives are in League with Satan -- just as the 1/3 Remnant who Christ chose to save have His Holy Spirit indwelling in us which manifests itself in our lives having the character traits of those in League with Christ. And Christ called those character traits “the fruits of the Spirit”!!!
As I’ve written in many of my Commentaries for Christ -- there are 2 Spirits ruling the Spiritual World which every Human Being is part of – for everyone who has ever lived on this sin-cursed Earth has either been ruled over by Satan or by Christ being part of either Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven – or Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon. In other words -- we are ALL either part of the Spiritual Kingdom of Christ where HE RULES and He CHOSE who would be in His Kingdom. Or one is part of the Spiritual Kingdom of Satan where SATAN RULES and inherited the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ chose NOT to save. And while the Holy Spirit of Christ rules over the saved souls in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – these saved 1/3 Remnant of this world have CLEARLY been adversely affected to say the least by the Evil Spirit of Satan ruling over the unsaved souls in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great”
who are every bit as ANTICHRIST as Satan is!!!
And “THE BLESSED HOPE” is that we 1/3 Remnant that Christ has saved will NOT have to co-exist with Satan and those in League with him for very much longer because Christ is coming back to DELIVER AND RAPTURE US on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!
And CLEARLY – “THE ANTICHRIST” cannot be One Particular supernatural Evil Man of the Future. For THINK ABOUT IT – Satan is that Evil Spirit which was present in John’s Day on Earth -- and is Present NOW -- and was prophesied by Christ to come in a VAST MULTITUDE at the End of time when Satan and his EVIL SPIRIT is LOOSED to possess and indwell as never before the 2/3 Remnant who are NOT SAVED. And he has NOW DECEIVED this unsaved 2/3 Remnant to fight the Final Spiritual Battle which we are in TODAY!!! For while Satan has been fighting against us 1/3 Remnant since the Garden of Eden -- TODAY we are seeing Satan coming against Christ and those of us in League with Christ in this Final Spiritual Battle that must occur as a prelude to Christ’s 2nd Coming!!!
In other words -- only the Spirit of Satan working within men qualifies to both be in the world at the time of John’s writing -- and now at the PRESENT – and also at the End of Satan’s Final 4th Epoch rule of this World which is also TODAY. And what we are seeing TODAY fulfills the prophecy of “THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST” that John and Paul prophesied from the Lord that would come in the future in a GREAT MULTITUDE. And that SATAN would lead this VAST AMRY of unsaved Mankind with his Spirit of antichrist in the FINAL REBELLION of Mankind against those of us with the Holy Spirit of Christ who exist in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth.
THINK ABOUT IT -- the spirit of Satan was INDEED working in men in John and the Disciples’ day on Earth when Evil Mankind crucified Christ. But Christ certainly had both John and Paul prophesy that the Spirit of ANTICHRIST would come with all iniquity abounding in the Future eat the END of Satan’s Final Epoch rule of this sin-cursed World. For even though iniquity was restrained at the Cross as we read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:7– Christ had Paul prophesy that it will be LOOSED at the “proper time” to fight this Final Spiritual Battle when SATAN is NOW TODAY leading his Army in REBELLION against Christ and His Word when we read:
"For the mystery of LAWLESSNESS is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” (which refers to Christ taking His restraint off of Satan and LOOSING him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!) (2nd Thess. 2:7)
And that means that the well-oiled MYTH of ONE PARTICULAR MAN being “THE ANTICHRIST” is found wanting when examined in the light of the True Gospel of Christ. For the SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST has worked throughout time within unsaved Mankind as SATAN-- who is the TRUE ENEMY AND ANTICHRIST of Christ and those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And TODAY Satan is using this vast Army of unsaved Mankind to do His bidding. And that’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough that SATAN is the Spirit of ANTICHRIST personified. And those in League with him will continue to be in SATANIC BONDAGE to him doing his bidding until the FINAL DAY of Judgment when they will be “cut off” and “cast out” of Christ’s Kingdom forever on “The Day of the Lord.” And make no mistake – that LAST DAY of Human History is BOTH the “Blessed Hope” and the FINAL DELIVERANCE for the 1/3 Remnant of us that Christ has saved out of this Human Race – but also the Final Day of Judgment for the 2/3 Remnant that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE!!!
Noah Had the “Blessed Hope” of Being Delivered out of the Great Flood
NOT Because he was “righteous” – But Because he was “chosen”!!!
The Bible tells us that Noah was a “righteous man” and that he walked with God when we read: ”Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.” (Genesis 6:9) But rest assured that Noah was NOT “righteous and blameless” because he was SINLESS – HARDLY!!! -- but because he was “CHOSEN” to be saved as part of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ has now saved out of this World by REDEEMING us by His sacrifice on the Cross and then RESTORING us “redeemed” and “chosen” as “the rightful heirs” of His Kingdom of Heaven!!!
In other words – Noah was part of Christ’s “CHOSEN GENERATION” as opposed to Satan’s “GENERATION OF EVIL”!!! And CLEARLY -- Noah was “CHOSEN” to stand with Christ in His DIVINE PLAN to DEFEAT SATAN and to bring Satan’s Kingdom at that time in Human History down to ruins just as we have been “chosen” TODAY at this Final time of DELIVERANCE!!! For “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog” Battle -- which are one and the same Final Spiritual Battle that we are involved in today -- is the CONQUEST of Christ over SATAN and ALL EVIL and the SPIRITUAL PLACE of Christ’s VICTORY at the END OF THE WORLD. Only unlike in Noah’s Day -- this time the Judgment will be FINAL!!! For Christ had John prophesy that the outcome of TODAY’S Final Spiritual Battle would be that Satan and his Army will be OVERCOME by Christ and His Christian Army who are the “called – chosen – and faithful” that He is using to fight against SATAN AND HIS FALSE PROPHETS in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when we read:
“The ten horns which you saw are ten Kings who have received no Kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as Kings with THE BEAST. (who is SATAN and those in his BEAST SYSTEM of corrupt and oppressive Governments now in the United Nations who Satan has united to fight against Christ and His Christian Army in this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!)
“These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST. These will MAKE WAR with the Lamb, and the Lamb will OVERCOME THEM, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are CALLED, CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL.” (which describes those of us in Christ’s Christian Army on Earth TODAY!!!) Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the Harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, Nations, and tongues.” (which refers to Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” where he is ruling the unsaved 2/3 Remnant from all Nations – for the WHOLE WORLD is now under his control after his being LOOSED by Christ to fight this Final Spiritual Battle!!!) (Revelation 17:12-15)
These 3 words: “called – chosen – and faithful” CLEARLY prove that Christ will use His Christian Army TODAY to help Him fight this Final Spiritual Battle. For these 3 words write the biography of all truly “born again” Christians who are the 1/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved out of this sin-cursed Human Race and would be with Christ fighting SATAN and his VAST ARMY
until the very LAST DAY!!!
In other words – we are the “redeemed sinners” who have ALREADY ENTERED Heaven’s Glory by Christ dying on the Cross to redeem us. And as part of His Christian Army on Earth today we have been “called” because we have been “CHOSEN” by Christ for such an “hour” as this time of GREAT TRIBULATION!!! CLEARLY -- we are “the faithful” who are standing up for Christ and HIS TRUTHS and His Honor TODAY because we have been “called” and enlisted under the BANNER OF CHRIST by Christ Himself to fight this Final Spiritual Battle!!! And make no mistake -- because we have been “called and chosen” – that is the reason WHY we SHOULD BE “faithful” to the advancement of THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel no matter what the cost!!!
The Disciples all gave their lives for standing up for THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word. And make no mistake -- the GREAT TRIBULATION they went through in doing that only FORESHADOWS the Great Tribulation that we are going through today in standing up for Christ’s TRUTHS!!! For CLEARLY – the Governments of this World’s United Nations are run by Satan just like the Roman Government was run by Satan in their day on Earth. But fortunately they also had “THE BLESSED HOPE” like all of us 1/3 Saved Remnant have had since the Days of Noah in knowing that Christ has the New Heavens and the New Earth waiting for us and that we will be with Christ for ALL ETERNITY after Christ has thoroughly DEFEATED Satan and his VAST ARMY of “Magog” in
this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!
And just as the Disciples trusted in Christ’s promise that He was coming back to RAPTURE all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – so should we trust in the promise of “THE BLESSED HOPE” of the FINAL DELIVERANCE from Satan’s Bondage which will help us to MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH in this time of Great Tribulation that precedes Christ’s 2nd Coming!!!
And it is because Satan has now been LOOSED – that we are living in the time of LAWLESSNESS and APOSTASY that Christ prophesied would take place before His 2nd Coming which would be much like the Great Tribulation that the Early Christians went through at the time of His 1stComing. And whether or not the Justice System is WORKING OR NOT – we have been “called and chosen” to be FAITHFUL to the very End. And sadly while many RHINOS are looking the other way in this Presidential Election that any FRAUD and Criminal Acts were even committed – what’s even worse is that there are many “lukewarm Christians” that I call “CHINOS” which stands for “Christians in Name Only” – that are NOT standing up for THE TRUTH!!! When clearly -- Christ IS TRUTH PERSONIFIED and we True Prophets were “called and chosen” to be “faithful” to His TRUTHS and to stand up for TRUTH AND JUSTICE AND LIBERTY
and FREEDOM for all!!!
HONESTLY -- all of us living today in this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION should start each morning with Martina McBride’s song “Independence Day” – for according to Christ and His Word we know for sure that what He REVEALED to Daniel in the 1st of his last 4 visions about SATAN – is that Satan will PAY along with those in League with him when Daniel prophesied from Christ about
Heaven’s Court and HEAVEN’S JUSTICE SYSTEM:
“But the Court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it forever. (referring to SATAN!!!) 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, And all dominions shall serve and obey Him.” (referring to of course Christ’s Kingdom!!!) (Daniel 7:26-27)
There may not be any Justice in America’s Court System any more and in most Court Systems in the United Nations of this World ruled over by Satan now – but there is for sure JUSTICE in Heaven’s Court System!!! And the guilty will PAY just as Martina McBride sings so beautifully in her song Independence Day here:
How the Last 3 Plagues That Christ Poured Out on Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire
FORSHADOWS the Last 3 Plagues and the Last 3 WOES that Christ is Pouring Out TODAY
On Satan’s 4th and Final Empire
CLEARLY – it is being shown today more than ever that Christ is ANGRY with Fallen unsaved Mankind which make up the 2/3 Remnant who exist on this Earth in their unsaved soul existence in Satan’s Spiritual Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” – for there have been so many unprecedented “Natural Disasters” in the last year that even unsaved Mankind is walking around wondering “What on Earth is going on???!!!” But rest assured that while Christ is setting the stage for the FINAL DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” on the LAST DAY – he is JUDGING those in the FINAL REBELLION against Him and His Word RIGHT NOW. And He is doing this by pouring out the 1st2 WOES which are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS on those in
the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great.”
But rest assured that Christ knows the number and names of us 1/3 Remnant that He Himself CHOSE to save out of this sin-cursed World – for that number has been fixed for all Eternity by His DIVINE DECREE. And as John saw in his 7 visions -- we True Prophets of Christ have been invisibly marked with “The Blood of the Lamb” and the “seal” of Salvation so that we will NOT be deceived into HELL along with the 2/3 Remnant who John saw that Christ had “sealed” invisibly with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” who are ALL DESTINED FOR HELL!!! And it just can’t be reiterated enough that John saw that we in Christ’s Christian Army will OVERCOME even in these days of Great Tribulation and will be “Blessed” as Christ REVEALED to Daniel recorded in Daniel Chapter 12 if we make to the 1,335th Day of this Great Tribulation!!!
CLEARLY -- the “guilty” will pay and there will be “a Day of Reckoning” to be sure!!! And that Day of both BLESSING and JUDGMENT is right on the Horizon now after it is becoming more OBVIOUS with each passing day that Christ has LOOSED SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. And HONESTLY -- when Senators are getting accused of “treason and sedition” TODAY for standing up for the TRUTH as Ted Cruz recently was – we should remember that Christ was also accused FALSELY of treason and sedition just for speaking THE TRUTH. And that’s WHY He WARNED us that the Great Tribulation that took place at His 1st Coming only FORESHADOWS the Great Tribulation of His NOW 2nd Coming when we read:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do NOT belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of My name, for they do not know the one who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.” (John15:18-22)
And when Christ prophesied this time of GREAT TRIBULATION before His 2nd Coming – He WARNED us “Elect” that we would be HATED AND REVILED with this prophecy: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all Nations for My name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9). And certainly that describes this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION -- not to mention that He also prophesied through Daniel that before His 2nd Coming that Satan would be “PREVAILING” against us “Elect” when we read:
“I was watching; and the same horn 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.” (Daniel 7:21-22)
Daniel goes on to prophesy this Final Spiritual Battle that is occurring right now on Earth which is then confirmed and REVEALED again to John in his 6th vision when we read of Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom that we are living in today. For CLEARLY -- we see how Satan’s False Prophets have changed the Election “times and laws” so that they could STEAL this past Presidential Election when Daniel prophesied what is so obvious TODAY. That the oppressive and corrupt Governments of the United Nations at Christ’s 2nd Coming are every bit as corrupt and oppressive as the Roman Government was at His 1st Coming. And that’s WHY Christ had Daniel prophesy that these LAST of the LAST DAYS is when Satan’s Final Kingdom of the UNITED NATIONS will be “THE BEAST SYSTEM” of Governments that this world is under today when we read:
“The fourth BEAST shall be A fourth Kingdom on Earth, Which shall be different from all other Kingdoms, And shall devour the whole Earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.”
“The ten horns are ten Kings Who shall arise from this Kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.” “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.” (Daniel 7:23-25)
CLEARLY – this is prophesying the Last 4th Kingdom of Satan which we are living in NOW in this 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And we should note that the prophecy that Christ gave to Daniel of Satan’s 4thand Final Epoch rule of this World is just what Christ REVEALED to John in his 6th vision of Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” being AT WAR with those of us in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” when Christ had John prophesy this Final Spiritual Battle:
“The ten horns which you saw are ten Kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as Kings with THE BEAST. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST. These will MAKE WAR with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
“Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the Harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, Nations, and tongues. 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. And the woman whom you saw is that Great City which reigns over the Kings of the Earth.” (which is Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great”!!!)
What we have to realize in studying “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology is the Divine Providence of Christ!!! For rest assured – Christ could end this world in a heartbeat with or without us and with or without any of our prayers!!! But He is testing each and every one of us in this Great Tribulation to see who is PRO-CHRIST and aligned with His DIVINE PLAN in DEFEATING SATAN. In other words -- who is depending on HIS SOVEREIGNTY as the God of the Universe and NOT just on our own power and might!!! And when one understands that it was God’s SOVEREIGNTY and Divine Providence that orchestrated the DELIVERANCE in Noah’s Day – and then in Moses’ Day – and also at the Cross – then one can see how Christ is setting the stage for the FINAL DELIVERANCE of today!!!
It was Christ’s Divine Plan For Pharaoh and His Army to Pursue Moses
For He was the One who Told Moses to Take the Route to the Red Sea!!!
If one reads Exodus Chapter 14 they will understand that Christ had a DIVINE PLAN of Deliverance all along when we read: “Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and camp before Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, opposite Baal Zephon; you shall camp before it by the sea. For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, ‘They are bewildered by the land; the wilderness has closed them in.’ Then I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, so that he will pursue them; and I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, THAT THE EGYPTIANS MAY KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD.” (Exodus 14:1-4)
AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! Christ is orchestrating this Final Spiritual Battle so that Satan and his 2/3 unsaved Remnant that he inherited in his VAST ARMY will KNOW that Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is to DEFEAT them in this Final Spiritual Battle!!! And rest assured that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST” that Christ is against when He had Ezekiel prophesy in the infamous “Gog Oracle” that “He is against Gog” and will “put hooks in his jaws” to drag him forth with his Army to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!
In other words – it is CHRIST’S DIVINE PLAN to ultimately steer “Gog” who is SATAN to his ruin and DEFEAT him and his Army of “Magog” as we read in Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. And we know this is TRUE because Christ REVEALED the same thing to John that He REVEALED to both Daniel and Ezekiel about this Final Spiritual Battle – that ALL the Nations of the World would be confederated to Satan’s Plan to subvert the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ’s witness of the TRUE GOSPEL through Man Centered Doctrines and the False Eschatology of Man!!! And while this Final Spiritual Battle is described in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE to be sure – but make no mistake it is the Battle that we are in TODAY when we read:
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the Great River Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the Kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the Dragon, (which refers to SATAN!!!) out of the mouth of THE BEAST, (which refers to the False Prophets in Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of the United Nations that he has confederated now into ONE UNITED FORCE coming against those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem”!!!) and out of the mouth of the False Prophet (and rest assured that Satan has more than just ONE FALSE PROPHET doing his bidding TODAY!!! This is a reference to the VAST ARMY of False Prophets that will be Judged that have lived on this Earth since the Garden of Eden!!!).
Christ makes sure we know that SATAN and the 200 MILLION DEMONS LOOSED with him from Hell are involved in DECEIVING THE NATIONS and fighting this Final Spiritual Battle when we read:
“For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the Kings of the Earth and of the WHOLE WORLD, to gather them to the Battle of that Great Day of God Almighty. (which is the Final Spiritual Battle we are in NOW!!!) “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16)
CLEARLY – Daniel and Ezekiel and John all saw in their visions that this Final Spiritual Battle would END by Christ DEFEATING SATAN’S ARMY of “Magog” by raining down FIRE on the WHOLE WORLD which will be even MORE SPECTACULAR than the Red Sea Deliverance when we read:
“Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to DECEIVE THE NATION which are in the four corners of the Earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the Earth and surrounded the Camp of the saints and the Beloved City. (which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us saved souls exist on Earth today!!!) And fire came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. The Devil, who deceived them, was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone where THE BEAST and the False Prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (Revelation 20:7-10)
John next describes that the LAST 3rd WOE or the 7thPlague will be poured out AT THE END of this Final Spiritual Battle when we read:
“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the Temple of Heaven, from the Throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a Great Earthquake, such a mighty and Great Earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the Earth. Now the Great City was divided into three parts, and the cities of the Nations fell. And Great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from Heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.” (Revelation 16:17-21)
I realize that Man’s False Eschatology is TOTALLY different than what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS in Christ’s True Eschatology– but either we believe THE LIES OF Man’s False Eschatology or THE TRUTH of Christ’s TRUE ESCHATOLOGY – it’s just that simple!!! For we in Christ’s Christian Army are “the called – chosen – and faithful” ones that Christ chose to fight this Final Spiritual Battle with which we are IN TODAY!!! And as far as I can tell – THE RAPTURE hasn’t happened yet!!! And there’s a good reason for that -- for Christ taught that we True Prophets of His have ALWAYS marched through this sin-cursed World on Hostile Enemy Territory ruled over by Satan and his VAST ARMY of the 2/3 unsaved Remnant who have his SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST!!! And that will NOT CHANGE until the very LAST DAY when Christ prophesied THE RAPTURE will take place!!!
But we must never lose sight of the BIBILICAL TRUTH that the Battle with Satan is the Lord’s to WIN – which He WON before the foundation of the World in His time which is ETERNAL -- and in Man’s time at the CROSS when He raised our saved souls along with His at His resurrection!!! And while He prophesied that we would be in this Final Spiritual Battle which would cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us fighting alongside of Him against SATAN and his Army of ANTICHRISTS -- rest assured that His True Eschatology declares that He is our STRENGTH – OUR DEFENSE – OUR REFUGE – AND OUR SHEILD. And that we in His Army WILL OVERCOME Satan’s Army and THEN He will DELIVER us at THE RAPTURE!!!
What if Moses Had Listened to Those Who Wanted to Go Back Into Egyptian Slavery
When They Saw Pharaoh’s Army Barreling Down Behind Them with the Red Sea Ominously Looming Out in Front of Them???!!!
THANKFULLY – Moses did NOT listen to the voice of so many who wanted him just to surrender to Pharaoh’s Army which was barreling down behind the Israelites with the Red Sea looming out in front of them with no place to escape to!!! HONESTLY -- Moses is one of my favorite people who ever lived on this Earth – but clearly it was Christ who gave Moses the courage and the FAITH to MOVE FORWARD when we read what Moses said to those who wanted to surrender to Pharaoh and go BACK INTO EGYPTIAN SLAVERY:
“Do NOT be afraid. Stand firm and you will see THE DELIVERANCE the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13-14)
AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For HONESTLY – it would be impossible NOT to notice how the LAST 3 of the 10 Plagues that Christ had Moses pour out on Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire mirror the LAST 3 WOES of the Last 7 Plagues that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that would be poured out on Satan’s Final and 4th Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” TODAY as a prelude to His 2nd Coming. And CLEARLY – The Awesome Book of Revelation details each of the 3 series of Judgments that Christ REVEALED to John that He has been pouring out on Satan and those in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” while He has been building His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth for the entire time of Church Outreach which has now lasted over 2000 years. And it just can’t be reiterated enough that this 2000 plus years also covers the prophesied 70th Week of Daniel’s prophecy of Christ’s 1st Coming to confirm His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life along with the prophesied Consummation of His Millennial Kingdom at His 2ndComing.
But as the three cycles of judgment are REVEALED – it’s important to understand that these Judgments intensify as John outlines the 7 Seal Judgments and then the 7 Trumpets and lastly the 7 Bowl Judgments which is what the fractions of ¼ and 1/3 were meant to SMYBOLIZE. And what’s even MORE important to understand -- is that Christ not only REVEALED to John that each of the individual cycles of Judgment intensify during the whole Gospel Era of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – but that they will especially intensify right before the End of the Age in the days immediately preceding His 2nd Coming -- which is TODAY when the 2nd Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy will be fulfilled and SATAN is ruling the United Nations as “THE ANTICHRIST”!!!
But the most important point to remember and the “Key” to understand the LAST 3 WOES -- is that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that these cycles of Judgment OVERLAP and do NOT happen in Chronological order in which the 7 Seal Judgments occur in time chronologically prior to the 7 Trumpet Judgments – and that THEN the 7 Bowl Judgments finally come at the end of time – HARDLY!!! For while the popular Eschatology of Man teaches that UNTRUTH -- these 7 Last Plagues which contain the LAST 3 WOES are NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER – but AGAIN OVERLAP!!!
In other words -- they will NOT ALL be poured out during a 7 year Tribulation Period AFTER the Rapture of the Church. For Christ’s True Eschatology makes NO SUCH CLAIMS AT ALL -- since He has been Judging the 2/3 unsaved Remnant since the Days of Noah by pouring out Plagues of all sorts using EVERY DEPARTMENT of this Universe – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And that’s WHY Christ REVEALED to John that the 7 Seal Judgments cover the entire period of time between His first and second advents which is the prophesied time that the 7 Trumpets and the 7 Bowl Judgments ALSO occur by overlapping each other. And CLEARLY – the time between the 1st and 2ndComing of Christ is the time when Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy will be completely fulfilled. And because these Judgments OVERLAP – John sees each set of them intensifying at the SAME time right at the End of time before Christ’s 2ndComing as a WARNING to the 2/3 unsaved Remnant that the Final Day of Judgment is a REAL EVENT and is coming quickly now.
Therefore -- we should understand that while these cycles of Judgment have been taking place during the whole Gospel Era including today’s Present Age – they NOW TODAY are intensifying as Christ’s 2nd Coming and the END OF THE AGE is drawing near. And CLEARLY what we see happening NOW with all of THE SIGNS that Christ gave to us converging together now as they NEVER HAVE BEFORE at any other time in the History of the Human Race – is a total breakdown of LAW AND ORDER as Satan is now ruling the WHOLE WORLD and Christ is pouring out the LAST 3 WOES along with all of the last year’s Catastrophic Weather Disasters of Biblical proportions to show that HE IS IN THE LAND and that the Final Day of Judgment is right on the Horizon now.
In my next Commentary I will address how the 8th – 9th and 10thPlagues of Moses’ Day FORESHADOW the Last 3 WOES which are the 5th – 6th – and 7th Bowl Judgments that Christ is in the process of pouring out TODAY!!! But until then – may Christ help us 1/3 Remnant that He has saved to MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH – for these DEFINITELY ARE THE DAYS OF GREAT TRIBULATION!!! Mary Sullivan
