The Timing of THE RAPTURE Could Very Well Be
One of The Strongest DELUSIONS and Greatest DECEPTIONS
That Satan Has Ever Pulled Off!!!
March 23, 2021
Don’t you just hate A LIE???!!! As a born-again Christian I sure do because there is nothing more sacred to an HONEST MIND than the Truth of Christ’s Word!!! But HONESTLY there are so many LIARS today that it’s almost as if there is a VAST ARMY of LIARS that are spreading lies constantly and cutting ALL TRUTH OFF so that no one knows THE TRUTH. But wait – isn’t that THE TRUTH???!! I mean – didn’t Christ say that Satan would lead an Army in REBELLION against Him and His True Gospel which is THE TRUTH before His 2nd Coming???!!! And didn’t Christ WARN us “Elect” who were of His seed that those of Satan’s Seed would be ruling this World with their reprobate minds that would cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for those of us who were standing up for THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word???!!! Didn’t Christ prophesy that He would take His restraint off of Satan and Satan would DECEIVE THE NATIONS with his campaign to NEUTRALIZE Christ’s True Gospel???!!! I mean – THINK ABOUT IT -- didn’t Christ WARN us that MANY FALSE PROPHETS would try to DECEIVE even us “Elect” with “SATANIC LIES” about these End-Times???!!!
And isn’t it interesting that the most popular Eschatology of Man today claims that The Church will be Raptured BEFORE the Great Tribulation when that couldn’t be FARTHER FROM “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology???!!! THINK ABOUT IT --Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly that Christ won't let THE CHURCH go through the GREAT TRIBULATION -- when Christ explicitly prophesies that EVERYONE living on Earth before His 2nd Coming will be going through a time of Great Tribulation because He is NOT going to Rapture His “Elect” until He has thoroughly DEFEATED Satan and his seed in this Final Spiritual Battle. And that is WHY He prophesied that He would take His restraint off of Satan and LOOSE him to fight the Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES that must occur for THE RAPTURE and FINAL DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” takes place!!!
And HERE’S THE MOST IMORTANT TRUTH -- one thing that we who are of CHRIST’S SEED that Christ calls His “Elect” do NOT want to be found guilty of doing when Christ Returns SOON -- is FIGHTING AGAINST HIM AND HIS WORD!!! For CLEARLY -- our fight is with Satan and those of his SEED – NOT with Christ and His True Gospel and His True Eschatology!!!
For fighting against Christ’s 1st Coming is what the Pharisees and the Sadducees did -- and we KNOW that Christ was not tooooo happy with them in doing that!!! CLEARLY – they were NOT of His Seed which is WHY He called them “The Children of the Devil” and part of Satan’s EVIL GENERATION!!! And in this Commentary I PRAY that I can give enough evidence that demands a verdict that our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of Today are just as much AT WAR with Christ and His True Eschatology about His 2ndComing as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR with Christ about His 1stComing.
The sad TRUTH is that False Prophets are so deceived by Satan – that they don’t even realize that they are fighting against the very ONE that they claim to love. But in all due respect – what False Prophets really LOVE today just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees did -- is the LIE of their False Eschatology more than they do the ONE TRUE GOD or they would not DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT – and CHALLENGE everything Christ’s True Eschatology teaches about His 2nd Coming – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
But one has to hand it to our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today who are much more sophisticated than the Pharisees and the Sadducees ever were – for they do NOT call Christ A LIAR right to His Face like the Pharisees and the Sadducees did recorded in John Chapter 8. NOR do they claim that Christ is “DEMON POSSESSED” – for that would be a DEAD GIVE AWAY that they are really “masquerading” as True Prophets of Christ!!! And they are certainly NOT guilty of picking up stones to try and kill Christ -- or plotting His Death and then putting Him through a Mockery of a Trial at night and instigating the crowd to yell “Crucify Him – Crucify Him” which the Pharisees and the Sadducees did that led to Christ’s DEATH!!! But they are nonetheless guilty of FIGHTING AGAINST Christ’s True Eschatology of these End-Times all the same!!! And in a sense – isn’t that like crucifying Christ all over again???!!! For aren’t they guilty in FIGHTING AGAINST CHRIST and His True Eschatology about THE RAPTURE and His 2nd Coming of leading so many in Christendom in this 21st Century to do the SAME???!!!
Sadly – Satan has so deceived Christendom today – that those standing up for the popular Eschatology of Man will fight to the death to defend their LIE that Armageddon and the “Gog and Magog” War are 2 separate Military Battles of the Future that will be fought over the LITERAL Land of Jerusalem in the Middle East. When “The Rapture Truth” of Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that these 2 Battles are one and the same Final Spiritual Battle of MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word !!! CLEARLY – Christ was using the same CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE in giving John his 7th vision of this Final Spiritual Battle that He gave to Ezekiel – that “Gog and Magog” represent ALL the Nations of the world set in opposition to Christ and His SEED and the Gospel TRUTH of His Grace that we “Elect” have been commissioned to take into all the Nations of the World!!! And clearly both Ezekiel and John were shown by Christ in their visions that ALL the Nations of the World would be under the influence of SATANIC DECEPTION when SATAN has NOW been LOOSED at the END OF THE WORLD to DECEIVE THE NATIONS when we read:
“Now when the thousand years have expired, (which is the CRYPTIC LENGTH of the Great Commission that has lasted over 2000 years now!!!) Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to DECEIVE THE NATIONS 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. 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.” (Rev. 20:7-10)
This of course is written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – but those of us who are of the SEED of Christ know what it means because we have Christ’s Holy Spirit to guide us into ALL TRUTH. And THE TRUTH that Christ is trying to convey with this Final Spiritual Battle – is that Satan will lead a VAST ARMY of Men and Women who are the 2/3 UNSAVED Remnant of this World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would NOT BE SAVED as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9 – AGAINST Christ and His Word and those of us “Elect” standing up for His Word.
In other words – Satan will be LOOSED to lead those who are of SATAN’S SEED in all the Nations of the World to fight one last SPIRITUAL BATTLE against Christ and HIS SEED. And Christ’s SEED are none other than THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST in the Eternal Universal Church of Christ – NOT to be confused with the EXTERNAL GLOBAL HARLOT CHURCH that John describes in the Book of Revelation who John saw that Satan as “THE ANTICHRIST” would take his seat in to rule during the Final Days of this Present Age of Humanity causing a time of Great Tribulation for us “Elect”!!!
Make no mistake -- John’s 7th vision of this Final Spiritual Battle is the same battle that he describes in Revelation 16:12-16 and Revelation 19:19-21 which is none other than the FINAL ASSAULT of SATAN against Christ and those of us who are His SEED living on Earth TODAY!!! In other words -- “the Elect” that Satan and his SEED are fighting are THE SEED OF CHRIST who exist in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” on Earth in our saved soul existence. While the unsaved who are of the SEED OF SATAN exist on Earth in their unsaved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great.”
And CLEARLY -- it is “Babylon the Great” that John sees coming against “the Camp of the Saints” and the “Beloved City” of Christ which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” – NOT Earthly Jerusalem!!! HONESTLY -- John is explicitly CLEAR in prophesying what Christ REVEALED to him in his 7 visions of these End-Times -- that this Final Spiritual Battle will NOT END until Christ and His Christian Army on Earth TODAY have thoroughly DEFEATED SATAN and his SEED. And it is AFTER Babylon Falls by “THE FINGER OF GOD”– that THEN John saw Christ pour out the LAST 3rd WOE which is the 7thLast Plague and rain down FIRE on Satan and all of His Seed. And not only will the unsaved 2/3 Remnant of the World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah be “cut off and die” as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9 -- but the whole Earth and Universe will also be destroyed by FIRE on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!
It is the LOOSING of Satan and This Final Spiritual Battle That is Causing
Today’s Great Tribulation
AGAIN – one does NOT want to be fighting against CHRIST and His SEED when Christ parts the very Heavens and steps back into Man’s Dimension again – for if one is AT WAR with Christ and His Word and those of us in Christ’s Christian Army when He returns – they will clearly be fighting on the WRONG SIDE!!! And one is fighting AGAINST Christ and His Word if they believe that we are NOT living in the 2ndHalf of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when SATAN has NOW been LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” and is today leading his Vast Army of ANTICHRISTS against those of us in Christ’s Christian Army. For CLEARLY -- Christ had both Luke and Matthew prophesy of this time of Great Tribulation when we read that these are “the DAYS OF VENGEANCE” when all those fighting AGAINST Christ and His Christian Army will be PUNISHED and then thrown into HELL on the LAST DAY when Christ Returns!!!
For Christ had Luke prophesy: ““But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. . . . For there will be great distress in the land and WRATH upon this people. . . . . ”And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled” (Luke 21:20-24)
CLEARLY – we know that Christ is prophesying about the Final Spiritual Battle that will take place against those of HIS SEED who exist in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” with Satan and his Army coming against the SPIRITUAL CITY of JERUSALEM – NOT the Jerusalem in the Middle East. For we read right before these verses that we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST:
“will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. (That) Everyone will hate you because of Me. But not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life.” (meaning our Eternal Security is IN CHRIST. And His having saved us will help us overcome even in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION – for Satan cannot kill our saved souls!!!) (Luke 21:16-19)
When we ask ourselves “When will ALL things that are written be fulfilled???!!!” -- of course the answer is “At the END OF THE WORLD” which according to all of THE SIGNS converging together as never before in History -- is TODAY!!! And if we ask ourselves the most important question of all – it would be “Whose VENGEANCE are these verses referring to and who is it directed at???!!!” -- the answer is that it is Christ’s vengeance and His FINAL JUDGMENT on Satan and those who are of the SEED OF SATAN who are fighting against His True Eschatology with their FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of these End-Times!!! In other words – it is NOT vengeance against the LITERAL City of Jerusalem in the Middle East – HARDLY!!! It is vengeance against the unfaithful Congregation who are AT WAR against Christ and His Word. For it is the External Global Church where this SPIRITUAL WARFARE takes place as John saw in his 7 visions.
And unlike what our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts teach – this Final Battle of “Armageddon” and “Gog and Magog” is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE -- NOT a physical Future Military Battle. For according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – it’s where “THE BEAST” who is SATAN battles with the saints in the External Global Harlot Church and the Apostate Churches around the Globe who are part of this Harlot Church -- and deceives the weak therein. And those who have “fallen away” from the True Gospel and Christ’s True Eschatology and have forsaken the Lord and are AT WAR against Christ about His 2nd Coming – will SURELY come under this Final Judgement of the LAST 3 WOES because of their abominations.
For it is this “Abomination of Desolation” that Christ tells us who are His “Elect” and are of His SEED who will still be on Earth to see SATAN ruling as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the External Global Harlot Church. And that when we do see this Abomination – that we are to “flee to the mountains.” And that is just another way of saying “When we see that CHRIST HAS LEFT THE BUILDING – THEN we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST should be heading for the EXIT SIGN of these Apostate Churches of Today right along behind Him”!!!!
Think about it – this is the time of the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE and Satan and his SEED will be fighting to the death against those of us who are Christ’s SEED when we read that many will fall when Luke Prophesied from Christ: “And they will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the Nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24)
This is the very same treading down by the Gentiles that is spoken of in Revelation Chapter 11 in John’s 3rd vision. And again because this is CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – “the sword” of unsaved man is his evil tongue. While “the leading away into captivity” is the unfaithful SEED of Satan who John saw were ALREADY invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and the number 666. And it is those “MARKED OF THE BEAST” who will have the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS poured out upon them. And these 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS will cause the unfaithful to “fall away” from THE TRUTH of Christ’s Gospel and be led into the Bondage of Satan through his many DECEPTIONS and “strong delusions” of these End-Times. And it’s so important to understand that this SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY by Satan will continue until “the times of the Gentiles” IS FULFILLED at Christ’s soon 2nd Coming.
We are TODAY Living at the End of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy!!!
CLEARLY – it is on THE LAST DAY of this Human Race when “The Day of the Lord” takes place at His 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE. And it will be the end of the World – or as Christ prophesied recorded in Matthew 24 -- when “'all shall be fulfilled.” And make no mistake – after this time of GREAT TRIBULATION Christ had both Luke and Matthew reiterate that He will returns in POWER AND GLORY to Judge Satan and HIS SEED by raining down FIRE to destroy both the Earth and the whole Universe!!! In other words – the 2nd Coming of Christ IS THE END OF THE WORLD – NOT a time of His restoring His Kingdom to reign from a 3rd Temple built by the hands of Man in the LITERAL CITY of Jerusalem. For Christ is reigning now and has been in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” since His 1st Coming!!!
In other words – we are living TODAY at the END of the forty-two months or 3 ½ years which is the CRYPTIC LENGTH of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. And this 2nd Half corresponds to the time of the “Abomination of Desolation” when Satan is LOOSED to lead those of HIS SEED to their “desolation” by BLINDING THEM to THE TRUTH which leads them to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word!!! CLEARLY – Christ has given power to the unsaved of the Nations that are ruled by Satan in today’s United Nations to marshall their Army of deceivers and trample the Holy City underfoot. And this Holy City is none other than the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST exist on Earth in our saved soul existence – THINK ABOUT IT!!! This is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE – NOT a Military Battle!!!
Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision that SATAN who is “THE BEAST” from the Bottomless Pit will MAKE WAR with the two witnesses who represent His “Elect” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST on Earth today – and will overcome us for a “short little season” which is TODAY in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And that is explicitly confirmed in Revelation Chapter 13 when John saw that we “Elect” will be overcome by “THE BEAST” who is Satan. For John through his visions paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the assault upon the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ by the Kingdom of Satan who is “THE BEAST” and how the Holy City is trampled underfoot by those under his rule during the LAST DAYS of Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom when we read:
“And he (referring to SATAN!!!) was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, (which he does by speaking through his False Prophets!!!) and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (which refers to today’s GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan has been LOOSED to Deceive the Nations to go TO WAR against Christ and those of us in Christ’s Christian Army!!!) Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in Heaven. (and those of us who dwell in HEAVEN ON EARTH in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem”!!!)
"It was granted to him (referring to SATAN!!!) 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. (meaning of course that because they are THE SEED of Satan – they will worship Satan and obey his voice!!!) If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” (meaning we “Elect” will be on Earth to see this leading into captivity and the killing of one’s soul by Satan!!!) (Revelation 13:5-10)
HONESTLY – one cannot help but notice that Christ continually uses the language that it was “'Given” unto them who are Satan’s SEED to MAKE WAR against those of us who are in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and are of CHRIST’S SEED!!! For in these verses in Revelation 13 John records that “power was GIVEN to Satan” to continue this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE for the CRYPTIC LENGTH of 42 months. And Revelation 11 says the court was “Given” to the Gentiles who represent the unsaved 2/3 Remnant of this World -- and that they would tread the Holy City down for “forty-two months.”
And so it is also prophesied in Revelation 17:17 when we read John again prophesying this same episode of the Judgment on the unfaithful Church or THE EXTERNAL GLOBAL HARLOT END-TIME CHURCH. For John describes that Christ will put it into the hearts of the False Prophets there to fulfill His will and to agree and “Give” their Kingdom and SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” over to “THE BEAST.” And in doing so – they “Give” Satan the power to lead them into Battle AGAINST CHRIST until God’s Word is fulfilled.
CLEARLY -- it is God who is bringing this Judgment TODAY upon the unfaithful End-Time External Global HARLOT Church that John describes in the Book of Revelation. In other words – Christ takes full responsibility for BRINGING BABYLON DOWN which includes the Harlot Church where Satan has now been LOOSED by Christ to take his seat in as “THE ANTICHRIST” just as we read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-11. Christ is the one who has sent this evil and “Given” Satan the power to deceive the unrighteous. And in Judgment – Christ has poured out the 1st 2 WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS. CLEARLY – Christ is the One who is bringing this Judgment just as He WARNED the Church He would do if they did not repent and remember from where they had fallen.
And this forty two months of Satan prospering is also spoken of as “time, times, and the dividing of time” in Daniel’s last 4 visions recorded in the last 6 Chapters of the Book of Daniel. And clearly Christ REVEALED to Daniel that SATAN who is “the little horn” would overcome us “Elect” even before REAVEAING this same vision to John when we read 1st from Daniel:
“And he (referring to SATAN!!!) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the Saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be Given into his hand until a time and times, and the dividing of time” (which is TODAY when LAWS and times are being changed right and left by Satan and his SEED who are ruling this World with their reprobate minds today and are THE LAWLESS MEN who have NOW come as Paul prophesied!!!) (Daniel 7:25)
And not only did Paul prophecy that a VAST ARMY of LAWLESS MEN would come led by SATAN who is the ULTIMATE ANTICHRIST and LAWLESS ONE – but this time of Great Tribulation is said to last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of forty-two months by BOTH Daniel and John in their visions of these End-Times. And make no mistake – this 3 ½ years – albeit CRYPTIC -- corresponds to the last Half of the final week or weeks of years prophesied in the 70 Weeks of Daniel Chapter 9. And it is prophesying this TIME TODAY when the overspreading of “Abomination” leaves the unfaithful desolate in The External Global Harlot Church.
Christendom Has Sadly Fallen So Far Away From Christ’s True Gospel That it Can’t realize That We are NOW Not Only in The 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy
But Nearing the END of it!!!
CLEARLY – it was the New Covenant of Grace that was strengthened by “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME that is recorded in Daniel 9:27 and Hebrews 9:16-17. And that “Messiah the Prince” who CAME was none other than CHRIST!!! And it was because of His dying on the Cross for HIS SEED that we know this “New Covenant” of Grace was confirmed with “the many” that was prophesied to take place during the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and has now been FULFILLED!!! And this final Half of the week that we are in TODAY was prophesied to start near THE END OF THE WORLD when Satan has now been LOOSED to fight today’s Final Spiritual Battle which must take place BEFORE THE RAPTURE and Christ’s 2nd Coming on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity!!!
And AGAIN -- if one thinks that the New Covenant week was NOT made strong by Christ’s death and resurrection -- and that the New Testament Era is NOT divided into two spiritual periods which are both spoken of as “time, times and a half” – then they are AT WAR with Christ and His True Eschatology!!!
For the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week started at the Cross as Christ confirmed or made strong the New Covenant of GRACE for “THE MANY” of us who are HIS SEED that He chose to save by His shed Blood even before the foundation of the World. And for over 2,000 years now Christ has fed and protected His SEED which makes up THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST in His Eternal Universal Church as we read in Revelation 12:14. And it is this first half of the New Covenant week that lasts a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1260 days to the time of this Great Tribulation of TODAY. And that it is this 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week prophecy when Christ REVEALED to Daniel that SATAN would be LOOSED to rule as “THE ANTICHRIST” causing this time of Great Tribulation for His “Elect” that would last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days as recorded in
Daniel’s LAST VISION in Daniel Chapter 12.
In other words -- this time of prophesied GREAT TRIBULATION is the 2nd “time, times and the dividing of times” as illustrated in Daniel 7:25. And in the midst of the week is when “the outer court” recorded in John’s 3rd vision in Revelation Chapter 11 is given to the Gentiles. And this evil time of Satan ruling the whole world comes to fruition as Daniel sees “THE BEAST” who is Satan is LOOSED which is also confirmed by John’s visions recorded in Chapters 9 -- 11 -- 13 and 17 of The Book of Revelation.
And it needs to be reiterated that the first Half of the New Covenant week is spoken of as 1260 days or 3 1/2 years as well as “time, times and a half” -- while the last Half is spoken of as 42 months or 3 ½ years as well as “time, times, and a half.” But no doubt Christ is making a distinction between these two distinct periods of Daniel’s 70th Week which is WHY when studying and comparing the Scriptures we should NOTE that the 1260 days and the 42 months are NOT the same timeframes even though they both are approximately 3 ½ years. THINK ABOUT IT -- WHY would God say the two witnesses preach for 1260 days -- and the court is given to the Gentiles for 42 months if they were synonymous???!!!
Since these are CRYPTIC NUMBERS – it appears that what Christ was trying to convey was that the trampling of “the outer court” of the Holy Temple takes place after the testimony of the two witnesses -- who represent the TRUE ETERNAL UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF CHRIST -- are killed or silenced by the LOOSING OF SATAN and his Demonic Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to fight the Final Spiritual Battle of today. In other words – it is referring to the 2nd Half of the 70thWeek while the witnessing of the Gospel Message of the
Kingdom of Heaven takes place during the 1st Half of the 70thWeek.
And it just can’t be reiterated enough that the weeks of Daniel 9 are symbolic of years. That’s why the FINAL WEEK in which “the Messiah the Prince” confirms the New Covenant of GRACE is symbolized as seven years – or weeks of years -- or in the literal “ONE SEVEN.” For this is CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE that represents the time it takes for THE COMPLETION of the Gospel Era – which is the CRYPTIC LENGTH of one week representing the whole New Covenant Period from the time the man-child ascended to Heaven to the time of His return. In other words – Daniel’s 70th Week takes place during the time of Christ’s 1st Coming to the time of His soon 2nd Coming which is just what the Book of Revelation Covers also – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And that means that when Dispensationalists teach that Daniel’s 70thWeek is FUTURE and just for THE JEWS – or that the time of Great Tribulation is a bloodletting between Nations fighting over the LITERAL destruction of the Middle Eastern City of Jerusalem – or that THE CHURCH will NOT be on Earth to participate in this Final Spiritual Battle because the Rapture of THE CHURCH they say will take place BEFORE THE GREAT TRIBULATION even begins– they are AT WAR with Christ and His True Eschatology pure and simple!!!
For CLEARLY – while Man’s False Eschatology teaches that THE CHURCH will be RAPTURED before the Great Tribulation – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies just the opposite when Christ tells us this TRUTH:
“For then there will be Great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” And before that He prophesied: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, 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. But he who endures to THE END shall be saved. 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.” (Matthew Chapter 24)
Those verses confirm THE TRUTH that NOT only is there going to be a time of Great Tribulation and that we “Elect” who are those of us that are THE SEED OF CHRIST will be here and in this Final Spiritual Battle – but that we are in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy RIGHT NOW!!! And we KNOW this is THE TRUTH not only because Christ prophesied it is THE TRUTH above -- but He gave Daniel and Ezekiel and John visions of this Final Spiritual Battle when they ALL SAW Satan and his Army of Antichrists in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” MAKE WAR against those of us who are of Christ’s SEED in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”
Man is Not Only AT WAR with Christ About Who Will Be IN The Great Tribulation
But also About the Timing of the Great Tribulation and The End Result
HONESTLY – Christ leaves very little doubt about THE TRUTH of this Final Spiritual Battle taking place between the 2 SEEDS of Mankind which are 1) The Seed of Satan – and 2) the Seed of Christ. And that it is the SEED of Satan who Satan has DECEIVED to MAKE WAR against Christ and His Seed when John saw in his 7th vision that Satan and his VAST ARMY of Antichrists surround “the Camp of the Saints” which is Christ’s “Beloved City” and none other than the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us who are of Christ’s SEED exist on Earth in our saved soul existence!!!
And Christ explicitly REVEALS that this Final Spiritual Battle takes place at the END of the World when Satan is LOOSED to lead the FINAL REBELLION against Christ and His Christian Army causing this time NOW TODAY of Great Tribulation. And when Christ has John prophesy in his 7thvision that after His Army is surrounded by Satan’s Army -- that then He Returns to RAPTURE and DELIVER us “Elect” who are of HIS SEED when we read:
“Immediately AFTER the (Great) Tribulation of those days (and rest assured Christ is talking about THE GREAT TRIBULATION in all of these verses!!!) 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 these verses describe THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!!)(Matthew 24:29-31)
And to PROVE that we “Elect” are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION -- Christ WARNS that BEFORE and DURING this time of Great Tribulation that there will be MANY FALSE PROPHETS who will come deceiving with False Gospels trying to lead even His “Elect” into DECEPTION when He prophesied: For false christs and False Prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the Elect. See, I have told you BEFOREHAND.” (Matthew 24:24-25)
SADLY -- the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man today -- which is based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism -- FALSELY teaches that Christ has 2 Bodies of people within His Kingdom – which is NOT the same as teaching that there are 2 SEEDS of Mankind. And Dispensationalists explain that in these verses above that “The Elect” that Christ is referring to that will be going through a time of GREAT TRIBULATION -- is NOT the New Testament Church who they claim will be RAPTURED long before this time of Great Tribulation even begins – but THE JEWS. REALLY???!!!
Dispensationalists haven’t thought this out very wisely when they teach that the 7 year Tribulation Period will be the fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and “Jacob’s Trouble” meant ONLY for THE JEWS. In other words – Dispensationalists teach that there has been what they call “The Gap Theory” which is the time of the Great Commission that has now lasted over 2,000 years when Christ has put The Nation of Israel on “hold” so to speak until all of the Gentiles have come into the Kingdom of Heaven. And that when that day finally comes “when all the Gentiles have come in” – that THEN Christ will RAPTURE THE CHURCH and will turn His attention again to the Nation of Israel when He will save the WHOLE NATION because they are His “Chosen people.”
But of course Dispensationalists prophesy that this will not happen UNTIL the Jews have been thoroughly punished for rejecting Him all of these years. And that PUNISHMENT they teach includes the pouring out of the LAST 7 PLAGUES which will kill almost half of the 7.8 BILLION people or however many people there will be “Left Behind” AFTER THE RAPTURE who have been “Left Behind” for the 7 year Tribulation Period based on Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy which they say will last a LITERAL 7 YEARS.
All I can say again is “REALLY???!!! Where in Scripture is all of that Eschatology taught???!!!” What about Christ saying in the Garden of Eden that there are only 2 SEEDS of Mankind – His Seed and Satan’s Seed???!!! Where does it say that His SEED is divided into 2 Bodies when we know that the Middle Wall of separation was TORN DOWN between the Jews and the Gentiles at the CROSS???!!! And doesn’t Christ’s True Gospel teach that ALL of His SEED were saved at the Cross???!!! Aren’t Christ’s Seed the “Elect” and “Chosen” of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST after the Middle Wall of Separation was TORN DOWN???!!! And hasn’t Christ been in the process of DELIVERING His SEED from Satan since the Days of Noah???!!! These are questions that Dispensationalists need to answer.
Along with the question of WHY would Christ warn us who are of HIS SEED that there will be FALSE PROPHETS trying to deceive us in the Great Tribulation if He knew that those of us in His True Eternal Universal Church would not be here DURING the Great Tribulation???!!! Of course the answer is -- He wouldn’t!!! And THE TRUTH is that Christ prophesied that the time of GREAT TRIBULATION is when we will SEE “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan ruling as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the External Global Harlot Church leading those of his SEED to their DESOLATION by DECEIVING them to go TO WAR against Christ and His Word!!!
THINK ABOUT IT – How could False Prophets almost deceive even the very “Elect if that were possible” as Christ prophesies -- if “the very elect” who Christ calls HIS SEED are not even here???!!! Make no mistake – Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology may have sold MILLIONS of Books but it’s just NOT “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – REALLY!!!
Scripture is very clear that “the Elect” are the believers and “chosen” SEED of Christ that He Himself chose before the foundation of the world as we read in Ephesians 1:4-6 and Colossians 3:12 and 1st Peter 1:2 to name just a few verses that speak of “The Elect.” And CLEARLY – there can be absolutely NO DOUBT that “The Elect” make up just ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are the believers Chosen from the foundation of the world when Christ had BOTH Moses and Peter prophesy of the “CHOSEN GENERATION” which are HIS SEED when we read in 1stPeter 2:9-10 and Exodus 19:3-6 that Christ is talking about THE 1/3 REMNANT that He chose to save out of this Human Race who are of HIS SEED.
For 1st Christ had Moses prophesy and then Peter prophesy about HIS SEED:
“And you shall be to Me a Kingdom of priests and a Holy Nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.” (which was only a REMNANT of them!!!) (Exodus 19:6) And Christ had Peter prophesy the same TRUTH to the REMNANT of His SEED chosen after the Cross when we read: “But you are a CHOSEN GENERATION, a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (and MAKE NO MISTAKE -- this Remnant of the New Testament are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which the Remnant in the Old Testament are also part of!!!) (1stPeter 2:9-10)
CLEARLY -- there is only ONE CHOSEN GENERATION which make up the “Elect” SEED of Christ. And the word “chosen” in these verses is the EXACT SAME word as we read in Matthew Chapter 24!!! HONESTLY -- if one wants Christ’s definition of “the elect” – then one has to read and accept what is written in Christ’s Word rather than listen to the False Eschatology of Man that is AT WAR against Christ’s Word. For Man’s False Eschatology teaches that Christ has 2 Bodies of People within His Kingdom and that His dying on the Cross did NOT SAVE ALL OF HIS SEED. Which is WHY they say He must Return – to finish saving the Nation of Israel – REALLY???!!!
There is Only ONE Identical Salvation Program For All of Christ’s Seed
And The Efficacy of Christ’s True Gospel Proves This TRUTH!!!
HONESTLY – when Dispensationalists teach that there are 2 Bodies of Christ in His Kingdom which are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church – they are AT WAR with Christ and His True Gospel just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were and the unbelieving Jews have been ever since who still believe that the CHRIST REJECTING RELIGION of Judaism is what Christ taught. When Christianity is the Christ ACCEPTING Gospel that Christ taught!!!
And CLEARLY -- Christ’s Word teaches that in Christianity there is only ONE IDENTICAL SALVATION PROGRAM for ALL of His SEED who are His “Elect and Chosen.” In other words – Christ’s TRUE GOSPEL teaches that He went to the Cross with the sins of His SEED and “Chosen Elect” from every race and Nation from the Old and New Testament times who He had decided would be saved before the foundation of the World – and when He rose from the DEAD our sins were purged by His Death and Resurrection!!!
And by NOT accepting the Efficacy of Christ’s Salvation Program – Dispensationalists just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees before them teach that the efficacy of Christ’s sacrifice is limited by time – when it is NOT!!! For the TRUE CHRISTIANITY that Christ taught prophesies that from the very moment that the Blood of Christ was proposed to cover those of us who were THE SEED OF CHRIST for our sins and redemption – it was as good as an accomplished act from that time forward in Christ’s Time which is ETERNAL – since He is from everlasting to everlasting TIMELESS!!! CLEARLY – Christ is INFINITE – so though time must unfold for man – Christ being OMNISCIENT and OMINPRESENT and the very GOD and KING of this Universe sees things as complete and accomplished and FINISHED before the foundation of the World because He is OUTSIDE OF MAN’S TIME!!!
And CLEARLY – that means that on the Old Testament side of the Cross – that the Old Testament Congregation who were THE SEED of Christ were primarily the “chosen and Elect.” While on the New Testament side of the Cross – we in the New Testament Congregation who are of Christ’s SEED are His “chosen and Elect.” But rest assured we are ALL of THE SAME ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST reconciled together after His Death on the Cross TORE DOWN the Middle Wall of Separation between the Jews and the Gentiles. And we “Elect” of Ephesians 1:4 are the very ones that the False Prophets of TODAY are trying to deceive.
FORTUNATELY – the False Prophets in this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION WILL NOT be able to deceive us “Elect and chosen” who are Christ’s SEED into HELL because we are born of THE SEED OF CHRIST and will endure to the very End of the World. But those who have been born of SATAN’S SEED will be deceived in the External Global Harlot Church just as Christ REVEALED to John that they would be in his 7th vision when He showed John that He would LOOSE Satan to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and would allow the 1st 2 WOES of Spiritual Blindness to be poured out on those of Satan’s SEED in His Kingdom of “Babylon the Great.”
The Cryptic Spiritual Picture of Today’s Final Battle
CLEARLY – the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of John’s 3rd vision recorded in Revelation 9 of Satan and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS LOOSED along with him from the Bottomless Pit which is HELL -- is shown again in John’s 5th vision when John describes in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE what he sees in this Final Spiritual Battle. And John begins by describing that the Great River Euphrates is dried up which is NOT the LITERAL River – HARDLY!!! For this is CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – and this Great River Euphrates represents the vast sea of Humanity represented by the unbelieving and unsaved 2/3 Remnant who exist in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” on this Earth today in their unsaved soul existence. And John sees that Satan and his Army come against Christ and his Army when the resources of “Babylon the Great” which is Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY are dried up.
And make no mistake – they are dried up by “THE FINGER OF GOD” pouring out a number of Plagues and Catastrophic Weather Disasters on this Earth just as He did with the 10 Plagues in Moses’ Day when Christ brought Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire down!!! AND SO IT GOES TODAY when we read – albeit in HIGHLY CRYPTIC LANGUAGE -- a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the World and these 2 Armies as they are engaged in this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY when John prophesied the DEMON ACTIVITY that we see going on in this World RIGHT NOW:
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of THE DRAGON, out of the mouth of THE BEAST, and out of the mouth of THE FALSE PROPHET. 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. “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 16:13-21)
I’ve explained the SPIRITUAL CRYPTIC MEANING of these verses before in other Commentaries – but I’ll include a refresher here for we are watching this prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes!!! And make no mistake -- it is Christ that John sees who dries up the economy and resources of the World which prepares the way for the Kings of the Earth led by Satan to come against Christ’s SEED that makes up
His Christian Army on Earth today!!!
And this 5th vision of John describing the Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY gets VERY CRYPTIC and SMYBOLIC when we read that “the Dragon” is SATAN and “THE BEAST” is Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of pagan World Governments that he rules over now in the United Nations. And of course “The False Prophet” represents all False Religions and False Gospels and also False Eschatology’s of unsaved Mankind today. And to prove this Battle is SPIRITUAL – John sees coming out of the mouth of Satan and his False Prophets in his Vast Army of ANTICHRISTS – “3 unclean spirits like frogs.” And John explicitly tells us that they are “the Spirits of DEMONS” – so there’s no guessing there!!! And no doubt he compares the spirits of these DEMONS to “frogs” to indicate the abominable – repulsive – and loathsome character of Satan’s Pagan World Governments in his BEAST SYSTEM of the now United Nations – for these Spirits of DEMONS are responsible for all the HELL BORN philosophies and False Religions of Man today that the Political and Religious Leaders of the United Nations and the External Global Harlot Church are promoting.
And HONESTLY -- there are so many LIES being told TODAY by these Political and Religious Leaders in Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of the United Nations -- that in watching Steve Hilton on “The Next Revolution” Show and his recordings of our new Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tell so many LIES about the Southern Border of the United States being secure and NOT in any way shape or form a CRISIS – that it was almost like watching “Baghdad Bob” so many year ago!!! REALLY!!! For “Baghdad Bob” was the Iraqi information Minister from 2001-2003 who was ALWAYS reporting outlandish LIES about the Iraqi Military Supremacy which was LAUGHABLE!!! And isn’t that just what so many in Biden’s LAWLESS ADMINISTRATION are doing NOW TODAY????!!!
But there is some GOOD NEWS of TODAY – for watching “Babylon Fall” is no laughing matter when all is said and done!!! And THANKFULLY John saw in his 7th vision that just when all the forces of the World which are POLITICAL – PHIOLOSOPHICAL – AND RELIGIOUS were ALL gathered together against Christ and His Christian Army -- that Christ will part the very Heavens and WILL APPEAR in all of His Glory!!! And that after resurrecting everyone who ever lived on this World to WATCH this Glorious 2nd Coming –
He will RAPTURE us “Elect”!!!
We are almost THERE!!! So KEEP MOVING FORWARD IN FAITH!!! Mary Sullivan
