Christ Decided Before The Foundation of the World
Who Would Receive “The Mark of the Beast”
April 5, 2021
There has been A LOT of panic and confusion that has gone on about Covid-19 around the Globe over the last year causing many to wonder if we aren’t living in the prophesied times of GREAT TRIBULATION just as Christ prophesied???!!! And sadly – because of the mishandling of Christ’s TRUE ESCHATOLOGY – it’s been heartbreaking at least for me to watch an even more serious PANDEMIC OF DELUSION AND CONFUSION in Christendom because of the ever so popular False Eschatology of Man which teaches relentlessly that The Church will be RAPTURED BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins. When CLEARLY that is just NOT what Christ teaches in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology AT ALL!!! For Christ’s True Eschatology EXPLICITLY REVEALS that EVERYONE on Earth will be going through a time of Great Tribulation BEFORE the Rapture!!!
But because Man’s False Eschatology of THE RAPTURE happening BEFORE the Great Tribulation is widely accepted as THE TRUTH -- it is understandable to see even Professed Christians confused by what seems to be a World spinning out of control. And so it’s not unusual to hear people on T.V. and the News Media asking daily every time there is a catastrophic weather disaster of Biblical proportions or a pandemic like the one we are going through NOW – or GOD FORBID the talk of the necessity of a future implementation of a Vaccine Passport just for us to live normal lives – “What on Earth is going on???!!!” But what’s even more disheartening for me then ALL OF THIS -- is to read Christian Leaders defend the False Eschatology of Man on their Prophecy Websites – saying over and over and over again that we are NOT living in what Christ prophesied would be a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for those of us who belonged to Him before His 2nd Coming.
And sadly for our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of this 21st Century who have gotten the timing of THE RAPTURE and Christ’s Eschatology so WRONG – I can hear Christ’s Holy Spirit saying to them now at His 2ndComing just what He said to the Pharisees and the Sadducees at His 1st Coming. For the Pharisees and the Sadducees could discern the Weather alright -- but because of their REFUSING to believe that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who was prophesied to come in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who had COME – Christ called them “the children of the DEVIL” and “Blind Guides” and “HYPOCRITCAL LIARS”!!! And for their leading so many at the time of His 1st Coming astray -- He had even more harsh words for them when He said:
“Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the Earth and the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time?” (Luke 12:56)
HOW INDEED???!!! For HONESTLY – they had the Prophecy of Daniel’s 70thWeek just like we do TODAY – but they were BLINDED just as our 21stCentury Christian Leaders are NOW at the time of Christ’s 2nd Coming. And their lack of discernment for the MANY SIGNS that Christ gave to us of these End-Times would no doubt lead Him to say the same thing of them – THINK ABOUT IT!!! For make no mistake – Christ will hold them accountable for so many even Professed Christians that will “be taken by surprise” when any day now Christ could part the very Heavens and step back into Man’s dimension.
CLEARLY -- many Professed Christians will be “Left Behind” at THE RAPTURE because the Religious Leaders of TODAY have taught the False Eschatology of Man – and NOT the True Eschatology of Christ!!! I’m just saying!!! But HONESTLY – our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today have to be BLINDED – for THE SIGNS that Christ gave to us of His 2nd Coming are so GLARING that who could miss them???!!! I mean – think about it -- there has NEVER been a time in History when ALL of THE SIGNS have been converging together as they are RIGHT NOW – REALLY!!! Yet our Bible Prophecy Experts just keep saying “Keep Moving – nothing to see here – NO Great Tribulation yet -- NOT until AFTER THE RAPTURE!!! – REALLY???!!!” Either that means that Christians are just NOT LISTENING to Christ’s Holy Spirit and His Word -- or they would rather believe THE LIES of Man’s Eschatology than THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Eschatology
about these End-Times.
But make no mistake – what Christ REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their many visions of these End-Times – is that He would take His restraint off of Satan and LOOSE him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle BEFORE THE RAPTURE. And that the LOOSING OF SATAN and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS from HELL to fight this Spiritual Battle with DECEPTION would cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST fighting on Christ’s side of THE TRUTH. And clearly -- John saw that EVERYONE on Earth would be in this Final Spiritual Battle – NOT that anyone would be Raptured out of it!!!
That’s WHY it’s JUST AMAZING to me how Christ could give this Final Battle the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL NAMES of “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog Battle” and could REVEAL through John’s 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 that it is fought with DECEPTION and with Satan being LOOSED to “DECEIVE THE NATIONS” – yet Man’s False Eschatology continues to insist that it will be a Military Battle and NUCLEAR WAR between the Nations fighting over the LITERAL Land of Jerusalem – NOT the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem”???!!! I mean – doesn’t Christ’s Word REVEAL from Genesis to Revelation that every battle throughout History has been between Christ and SATAN???!!! And didn’t Christ say in the Garden of Eden that He would put ENMITY between those of HIS SEED in the Spiritual Kingdom of Heaven and those of SATAN’S SEED in the Spiritual Kingdom of Babylon???!!!
And throughout the awesome Book of Revelation don’t we see that this ongoing battle of the CONQUEST of Christ over SATAN AND ALL EVIL will finally come to AN END in one FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE with Christ LOOSING SATAN and his 200 MILLION ARMY OF DEMONS from Hell to fight it???!!! I mean – hasn’t this Spiritual Warfare and conflict between Christ and SATAN been represented in every battle ever fought on this Earth throughout History which Christ REVEALS through John’s 7 visons MUST COME TO AN END BEFORE the FINAL DELIVERANCE and THE RAPTURE???!!! And yet Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology says that we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST are NOT even in the Battle -- REALLY????!!! Why would Christ take out His Christian ARMY and forfeit the most important Spiritual Battle in all of Human History???!!! It makes no Biblical sense. And the answer is – HE WON’T!!!!!!
HONESTLY – it’s pretty obvious that Christendom is so concerned right now with Satan’s Game Plan of “the Great Reset” taking place and the implementation of “the Vaccine Passport” – more than fighting for Christ and His Honor and His Word and “The Rapture TRUTH” REVEALED in His True Eschatology – that all they can think of is a value or score that MIGHT be placed on every person’s life based on their political views – productivity – consumption – and age to track our every move. And they are so worried that if they take the Vaccine for Covid-19 and are given a Vaccine Passport that it will be “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”!!! And that if they REFUSE to take the vaccine and the passport and don’t meet global standards according to the New Globalist System – that they will be dealt with harshly and won’t be able to “buy and sell”!!! All I can say again is – “REALLY???!!!” This is WHY it is so very important to be grounded today in Christ’s Word and His True Eschatology!!! What these “lukewarm” and one could even call “counterfeit Christians” of this Great Tribulation fail to BELIEVE is that a value has ALREADY been placed on the lives of those of us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST which is why HE GAVE HIS OWN LIFE to save us from SATAN – SIN – and being thrown into HELL!!!!!!
I mean – think about it – shouldn’t we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST be assured from Christ’s own Word that He AREADY has everyone who ever lived invisibly marked???!!! And if He has the very hairs on our heads counted – which He says that He does!!! – wouldn’t He also know our thoughts and whereabouts???????!!! The ones who are “buying and selling” that we should be concerned with are Satan’s FALSE PROPHETS who are selling his SATANIC LIES about these End-Times as DIVINE TRUTHS. When those SATANIC LIES are nothing more than “crafty distortions” of the True Gospel of Christ and His True Eschatology of these End-Times. And these False Prophets are using “scare tactics” to convince the World of Christendom that Christ is NOT in control – but SATAN is!!!
I DON’T THINK SO!!!
Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST” – and those in League with Satan have his Antichrist Spirit and are under his “strong delusions” that his Game Plan of “the Great Reset” is going to succeed which couldn’t be farther from THE TRUTH!!! And to prove that -- Christ is right now EXPOSING the Evil Deeds of Satan and those in League with him BIG TIME!!! But He can only EXPOSE those LIES and the Evil being done if we “Elect” in His Christian Army are His vessels that He is using to DEFEAT SATAN!!!
Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that EVERYONE on Earth either exists in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in their unsaved soul existence and have ALREADY been invisibly marked by Christ with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – or we exist in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” in our saved soul existence and have ALREADY been invisibly marked by Christ with The Blood of the Lamb which is “THE MARK OF SALVATION”!!!
And CLEARLY – these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms that Daniel and Ezekiel and John saw in their visions were seen by all 3 of them to be locked in Mortal Combat before Christ’s 2ndComing and THE RAPTURE causing a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! And that is also what Christ prophesied in His Apocalyptic Discourse of Matthew Chapter 24. So unless one just wants to DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT – or CHALLENGE what is written in the UNADULTERATED WORD of Christ – then this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES must be fought so that Christ and those of us in His Christian Army can DEFEAT SATAN and bring His Kingdom of Babylon down to ruins to fulfill Prophecy.
THINK ABOUT IT – doesn’t John’s 7th vision clearly REVEAL from Christ that Satan will be LOOSED to go out and “DECEIVE THE NATIONS” as we read in Revelation Chapter 20 with NO MENTION of a Rapture happening BEFORE Satan is LOOSED or BEFORE the Great Tribulation ends???!!! CLEARLY – John sees Christ rain down FIRE from Heaven on Satan and his Army of False Prophets at the End of the Great Tribulation when the Camp of the Saints has been surrounded by Satan and his Army of ANTICHRISTS to fight this Final Spiritual Battle. THINK ABOUT IT!!!
John Saw in His Visions That Satan’s SEED ALREADY Had
The Mark – Name and Number of THE BEAST!!!
HONESTLY – living today in what Christ prophesied would be the time of the Final Spiritual Battle – it just can’t be reiterated enough that John’s 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 9 should be late night reading for all of us in Christ’s Christian Army on Earth today – REALLY!!! For John paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the SEED OF CHRIST who are those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST going forth planting and watering and caring for the wheat of the field just as we read in 1st Corinthians 3:6 – when those of THE SEED OF SATAN will come up out of the Bottomless Pit which is HELL as a plague of locusts LOOSED as an Army of antichrists led by Satan BEFORE the 2nd Coming of Christ. And CLEARLY – the reason that they are LOOSED is to fight this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY!!!
But make no mistake -- their mission is to destroy the field and to make this World a desolate wasteland!!! And no doubt that is WHY the leader of this Army of Antichrists -- or what John describes as “locusts” from HELL!!! -- has the name “Destroyer” which illustrates the character of SATAN who is leading this Army TODAY in opposition against Christ and his Word and those of us bringing His Words of TRUTH about these End-Times. And it is those of Satan’s Kingdom who exist today in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Babylon the Great in their unsaved soul existence on this Earth that John saw were ALREADY marked by Christ with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” -- showing that they were Satan’s SEED and his possession. And CLEARLY – John saw this Army of Antichrists surround the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us who have been saved by Christ exist on Earth in our saved soul existence who John also saw were ALREADY marked by Christ with “THE MARK OF SALVATION" and the Blood of the Lamb to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that we are in TODAY.
And fortunately the Book of Revelation portrays Christ as the Conqueror and the ONE TRUE GOD who overcomes Satan who is “the destroyer” and the Leader of this Army called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog” which is Satan’s vast Army of the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE!!! In other words -- this awesome last Book of the Bible depicts 2 distinct and opposing Spiritual Kingdoms which are at ENMITY with one another fighting each other until TODAY’S very LAST SPIRITUAL BATTLE that must occur before THE FINAL DELIVERANCE and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY even takes place.
And living in this time of the prophesied GREAT TRIBULATION when – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that Christ will LOOSE Satan to fight the Final Spiritual Battle – we need to understand Christ’s teaching on “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and who it is that put that mark there that John saw was ALREADY invisibly written on ALL OF SATAN’S SEED!!! THINK ABOUT IT – Christ showed John in his visions that the invisible marking of Mankind was done by HIM – for He wanted us who were of HIS SEED to know THE TRUTH about “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
And that TRUTH is that there are 3 characteristics that Christ REVEALED that the SEED of Satan would possess. In other words – John saw in his 7 visions that the unsaved 2/3 Remnant who belong to Satan and exist in their unsaved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” on Earth have these 3 characteristics of THE ONE they serve who is SATAN. And CLEARLY – these 3 characteristics are illustrative of those in league with Satan who John saw ALREADY had these 3 things which are:
1) The Mark of the Beast – 2) The Name of the Beast – and 3) The Number of the Beast which is 666!!!
But of course one 1st needs to BELIEVE that Christ calls SATAN “THE BEAST” in Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions of these End-Times in order to understand that only those of the SEED OF SATAN are the ones “buying and selling” SATAN’S LIES in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And one of those LIES that they are “buying and selling” is that One Particular Man of the Future will mark everyone “Left Behind” on Earth after THE RAPTURE of the Church!!! When it just can’t be reiterated enough that John saw in his 7 visions of these End-Times that every one of those who were of THE SEED OF SATAN had ALREADY been invisibly marked by Christ Himself with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.” And that is WHY John saw that all those having “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” would so easily be DECEIVED by Satan to “buy and then sell” his LIES as THE TRUTH TODAY in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
What Daniel and John’s Visons Teach about THE BEAST and His Mark
FORTUNATELY – we have Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions of these End-Times. And Daniel was made to “know the interpretation” of Satan and his Last 4 Beast Systems of Government that are represented in the Statue of Satan in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream. And make no mistake – if One Particular Man of the Future was going to rule the Whole World – then Christ would NOT have gone to so much trouble to give King Nebuchadnezzar this dream of the STATUE OF SATAN and then give Daniel the interpretation of the dream so that we living TODAY would know that SATAN is the Final Ruler of this World and “THE ANTICHRIST” – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And not only did Christ want us who are of HIS SEED to know that SATAN IS “THE ANTICHRIST” – but He wanted us to know that “THE BEASTS” ruling along with Satan represent the unsaved SEED of Satan as they are men from devouring Kingdoms or rules which come up out of the Earth as Christ REVEALED to John in his 4th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 13. HONESTLY -- we True Prophets of Christ today are “so very blessed” that what Christ REVEALED to Daniel about Satan’s LAST 4th Empire of Today is confirmed and explained in even more depth in John’s 4th vision when we are told that “THE BEAST” of Revelation Chapter13 will rise up out of the Earth to fight against those of us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST BEFORE the 2nd Coming of Christ. And clearly -- the “imagery” of the strong Kingdoms of Satan pictured as BEASTS which are Lions – Bears -- or Leopards in Daniel’s visions -- was to illustrate their strength and fierceness as Satan has come against Christ’s Kingdom of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” since the beginning of time!!!
And CLEARLY – Christ’s DIVINE PLAN for these End-Times that we are living in TODAY -- is that it is those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST who will ultimately overcome those who are of THE SEED OF SATAN in Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom symbolized by “THE BEAST” in Daniel – Ezekiel and John’s visions of these End-Times. For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that at the END of this Final Spiritual Battle – it is those of CHRIST’S SEED who will take and possess the Kingdom forever and forever when we read:
“I was watching; and the same horn was MAKING WAR against the saints, and prevailing against them, (which is today’s Final Spiritual Battle!!!) 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. . . . . . (but until The Day of the Lord comes on the LAST DAY first) he (speaking of SATAN who is “THE ANTICHTIST”!!!) shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. (which is going on BIG TIME TODAY in this now LAWLESS SOCIETY ruled over by SATAN!!!)
“Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. (which is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION when the Final Spiritual Battle is occurring!!!) ‘But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever. (speaking of Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon!!!) 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.’” (speaking of Christ’s Kingdom!!!) (Daniel 7)
In this HIGHLY CRYPTIC AND SPIRITUAL APOCALYPTIC LITERATURE of the Bible we are given a clear illustration that this Final 4th Kingdom of SATAN -- which is Satan’s MOST devouring and fierce of all the Kingdom represented in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream of the Statue of Satan -- will be ultimately overcome IN CHRIST. But not before the 2 Spiritual Kingdoms at ENMITY with each other fight this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE OF TODAY!!! One Kingdom is pictured as “BEASTS”– who John saw in his 7 visions that Christ had ALREADY invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – and the other Kingdom is pictured as "the prey" that these beasts come to devour in this Final Spiritual Battle that is raging TODAY!!!
CLEARLY -- in Revelation Chapter 13 -- the first vision of a “BEAST” there is symbolic of the wicked men of the principality of Satan – as they come as his SEED and blaspheme God throughout time when we read John telling us what Christ REVEALS in this vision of SATAN: “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a BEAST rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” (Revelation 13:1)
The number “7” all throughout the Bible is the number representing “totality” or completeness -- and no doubt that is WHY there are 7 heads of “THE BEAST” which symbolizes SATAN’S rule and authority through the totality of time. And make no mistake -- it is Satan who is called “the Dragon” who is “THE BEAST” in John’s visions that gives the SEED OF SATAN their power or authority. And John was shown that the 2/3 unsaved Remnant of this World who had “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” worshipped “THE BEAST” all throughout the CRYPTIC LENGTH of “42 months” which represents today’s prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
And while the number “7” represents Satan’s complete power and authority ruling TODAY’S 4th and Final Kingdom -- the number “10” is used in Scripture to symbolize “fullness” – while the word “horns” also symbolize power. So the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that Christ is conveying through John’s 4th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 13 -- is a picture of “THE BEAST” who is SATAN who has “10 horns” which symbolize the “fullness of his power” in reigning NEAR THE END OF THIS FINAL 4th KINGDOM OF THE WORLD!!! And as we are seeing – Satan’s Kingdom of False Prophets is allowed by Christ Himself to reign during the latter times of this Final Rule of Satan as recorded also in John’s 6th vision REVEALING that TODAY is when these “10 horns” will arise -- AND THEY HAVE ARISEN TO BE SURE 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 in this Final Kingdom of TODAY!!!) These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST.” (Revelation 17:12-13)
Lest We Forget – Satan Was Dealt a “Death Blow” That Has Now Been Healed!!!
FORTUNATELY -- we are also shown in Revelation Chapter 13 an illustration of this BEAST having it’s authority broken by being dealt “a death blow” by the Cross of Christ showing that Satan’s power over this Human Race was temporarily broken and he was BOUND as we read in Hebrews 2:14-15. And CLEARLY -- SATAN was BOUND so that the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ could be built and those of us who were of THE SEED OF CHRIST whom Satan held captive could be set free. But when we read in Revelation Chapter 13 John prophesying that Satan’s death wound is healed – we need to understand that it refers to Satan’s LOOSING near the end time which is the time that we are living in TODAY!!!
And what Christ was trying to convey through Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions of this Final Spiritual Battle called by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog Battle” – is that Satan himself is the source of power for the “BEAST SYSTEM” now confederated in one Empire of the United Nations which is the 4thand LAST Kingdom that Satan will ever rule over. And just as Daniel and Ezekiel and John all saw in their visions – Christ has LOOSED Satan during the END of this Final 4th Kingdom -- and the 1st thing he has done is to DECEIVE all the Nations of the World to be confederated in League with him to go to WAR with Christ and His Christian Army on Earth in this Final Spiritual Battle of TODAY – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And CLEARLY – even though Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – what He wanted those of us in His Christian Army to understand – is that it is the 2nd BEAST in John’s 4thvision recorded in Revelation Chapter 13 that should concern us the most today. For this 2nd Beast is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Satan and his SEED as they are the FALSE PROPHETS that arise after Satan is LOOSED!!! In other words – John is painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of today’s time of GREAT TRIBULATION when the Final Spiritual Battle is now being waged against us True Prophets of Christ. And Satan is spoken of as a “BEAST” having “horns like a Lamb and yet speaking like a Dragon.”
And clearly this HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE is the illustration of Satan and his Kingdom of FALSE PROPHETS coming as devouring BEASTS against those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST!!! But here’s where THE DECEPTION comes into play – Satan and his False Prophets come in the likeness of Christ’s own people or those of CHRIST’S SEED. This is FORESHADOWED by the Pharisees and the Sadducees who were the Esteemed Religious Leaders but who Christ called “HYPOCRITICAL LIARS” at His 1st Coming. And that is now what we see taking place at His SOON 2nd Coming with those who are really in League with SATAN but who are DECEIVED to think that they are IN CHRIST and serving Him when they ARE NOT!!!
And it is obvious that they ARE NOT IN CHRIST – for they have all 3 characteristics of SATAN which are illustrative of those in league with him which of course only Christ and His good Angels can see but we know are: 1) The Mark of the Beast – 2) The Name of the Beast – and 3) The Number of the Beast by their actions and words!!! In other words – what we are seeing TODAY is the coming of the anti-Christ or substitute-Christ that John prophesied when he wrote:
“It is the last hour; (which began when Christ ascended into Heaven after His resurrection!!!) 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.” (and also by which we know that there is NOT ONLY ONE ANTICHRIST but MANY – and just as Christ had Paul prophesy these ANTICHRISTS will come in a great multitude before Christ’s 2nd Coming as “THE LAWLESS MAN”!!!
This is symbolism of Satan’s people and those of SATAN’S SEED who come as peacemakers and reconcilers to God -- when in reality they bring NO peace -- and they CERTAINLY exhort no reconciliation because they are ADVERSARIES to Christ and HIS WORD being AT WAR with Him which is what this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” represents – which is MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD!!! They are people of the SEED OF SATAN who speak LAWLESSNESS as “a Dragon” but who in appearance present themselves as coming with the power of The Lamb who is Christ. In other words -- they are unsaved people from Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” masquerading as being from the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” which is A LIE!!! And that’s where we are on Today’s Prophetic Timeline!!!
God often uses this imagery of devouring beasts to get the point across that Satan is a strong adversary -- and he comes through the LAWLESS actions of men to ravage the Shepherd's flock. And Christ is using a lion or a BEAST to symbolize Satan’s strength. While “the Saints” who are those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST are often symbolized as “sheep” to illustrate our humility and harmlessness. And that’s WHY Christ had Peter prophesy ESPECIALLY of these LAST of the last days of this Present Age of Humanity: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1st Peter 5:8)
This is what Christ wanted to convey with the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICUTRE of Satan and his False Prophets being “BEASTS” who come ravening the prey who are those of us that are of THE SEED OF CHRIST. And CLEARLY – now that Satan has been LOOSED to fight today’s Final Spiritual Battle – the False Prophets in League with Satan are now ruling this World with their REPROBATE UNSOUND MINDS that have been BLINDED by Christ pouring out the 1st of the Last 3 WOES upon them for JUDGMENT which is SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS. And these False Prophets show up in the midst of churches and just about anywhere on Earth – APPEARING to have the power of Christ which is ”the horns like a Lamb”-- but whose words are NOT the words of God but of Satan which is what is meant by them “speaking like the Dragon”!!!
In other words -- they replace the LAWS of God with their own words and laws so that this unsaved 2/3 Remnant of the World’s population that Christ has NOT SAVED have become just what Christ had Paul prophesy they would become -- which is “THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS” rather than “THE MAN OF LAWFULNESS”!!! And because they are of THE SEED OF SATAN rather than THE SEED OF CHRIST – Satan’s Game Plan is to DECEIVE these False Prophets under his mind control to think that they are serving GOD when what they are doing is NEUTRALIZING the True Gospel and
Eschatology of Christ today!!!
Why Having A Vaccine Passport Makes No Difference to Christ!!!!
According to what Christ REVEALS in His True Eschatology in the visions just mentioned given to Daniel and John – Christ Himself is the One who put that invisible mark on the 2/3 Remnant that He chose NOT to save out of this Human Race – NOT a Future ANTICHRIST!!! And the imagery of the 2/3 unsaved Remnant of this World receiving these 3 characteristics of which only those of the SEED OF SATAN HAVE -- is to signify their association with SATAN who Christ refers to as “THE BEAST.” For as Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS -- “The mark” is to signify Satan’s ownership of them. And “The name” is to signify that they are part of Satan’s family. And lastly “The number” is to signify their lot in this life is with “THE BEAST.” And just knowing this TRUTH changes what Man’s False Eschatology teaches when we read:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except (the) one who has the mark or the name of THE BEAST, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of THE BEAST, for it is the number of (unsaved) man (NOT of “a” man – for there is NO article “a” in the original Greek text!!!): His number is 666.” (Revelation 13:16-18)
HONESTLY -- almost from the time that John first penned The Book of Revelation for Christ men have been trying to figure out what “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” meant. In other words – what the significance of the infamous number 666 is. And clearly Man’s Eschatology has alternated between the LITERAL marking on the hand and forehead by a Future Antichrist AFTER the Rapture – to the Pope’s address – computer chips placed under the skin – to now the Great Reset of a One World Government when we might ALL soon have to have a Vaccine Passport to travel or to engage in any kind of “buying and selling”!!! But because every Word of Scripture is DIVINELY INSPIRED by Christ Himself – only Christ and His Holy Spirit can REVEAL to us what “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” means and who put it there.
And when even Professed Christians are beginning to PANIC about the Vaccine and the Vaccine Passport being “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – it just can’t be reiterated ENOUGH that John saw in his visions that Christ Himself had ALREADY invisibly marked every Human Being with either His “MARK OF SALVATION” or “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – so the “He” in John’s 4thvision above refers to CHRIST – NOT to a Future Antichrist when we read: “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or their foreheads” – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And any hypothesis from outside of the inspired Words of Christ is sure to be WRONG – AND HERE’S WHY!!! – private interpretation is the essence of every single False Christian Gospel including Man’s False Eschatology TODAY – BAR NONE!!! And Man’s False Eschatology which subjects Christ’s Word to Man’s own private interpretation is the very reason that its doctrines are Man’s own interpretation which is more often than not -- FALSE. And HONESTLY -- what’s even more serious than having to be vaccinated and to be forced to carry the Vaccine Passport – is the LIES of Satan's “crafty distortions” about these END-TIMES which has DECEIVED so much of Christendom today to believe that we are NOT NOW in the Great Tribulation fighting this Final Spiritual Battle and that that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is yet Future and meant only for THE JEWS!!!
"Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is The Antichrist -- Denying the Father and the Son.”
Christ ‘s True Eschatology REVEALS that there are only 4 places in the Whole Bible that speaks of “THE ANTICHRIST” -- and Daniel 9:27 is NOT one of those verses – REALLY!!! Here are the 4 verses: 1st John 2:18 – 1st John 2:22 -- 1st John 4:3 -- and 2nd John 1:7. And just think about it -- are we to believe that no one except ONE single man in History has ever denied Jesus -- or the Father -- thus qualifying him to be “THE ANTICHRIST”???!!! Or what’s even more ludicrous – are we to believe that this One Particular Man hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet which Tim LaHaye managed to convince over 80 Million people to no doubt believe who read his “Left Behind” series – REALLY????!!!!
CLEARLY – John prophesied this very important TRUTH from Christ – that anyone is A LIAR and an ANTI-CHRIST if they DENY that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” who came when we read: “Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. (or “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME that was Christ prophesied in Daniel 9:27!!!) Such a person is THE ANTICHRIST -- denying the Father and the Son.” (1stJohn 2:22)
It is Christ’s UNADULTERATED Word that defines who “THE ANTICHRIST” is -- NOT MAN!!! And Christ does NOT define “THE ANTICHRIST” as One PARTICULAR Man of the Future that will be REVEALED after THE RAPTURE of the Church -- but as “anyone” who denies the Words of the Father and the Son!!! And that would include Christ fulfilling Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME!!! In other words – “THE ANTICHRIST” is NOT One Particular Man of the Future – but unsaved men in particular!!! And make no mistake -- in order to deny God they would have to have the spirit of Satan – or the spirit of disobedience. And note that the singular [houtos esti antichristos] – LITERALLY means “He is antichrist”!!!
In other words -- “the antichrist” is ANYONE who is “a liar” and denies that Jesus is the Christ or “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME. And HONESTLY by denying Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has even taken place yet – Dispensationalists deny the Father who sent and ANOINTED the Son who was JESUS as we read in Luke’s Gospel when Christ went into the Synagogue and read from the Book of Isaiah these words PROVING that
The Father had ANOINTED HIM:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has ANOINTED Me To preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Then He closed the Book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the Synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is FULFILLED in your hearing.” (which is just what we read in Daniel 9:24 about the anointing of the Most Holy!!!) (Luke 4:16-21)
And CLEARLY -- when man denies Christ’s Word that He was the ANOINTED ONE sent from The Father -- he truly denies the Christ -- the Word of God made flesh!!! NOT TO MENTION – that John also prophesied this very important TRUTH: “Whoever says, “I know Him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.” (1stJohn 2:4) HONESTLY -- what John was trying to convey from Christ was that THE LIAR spoken of as “the antichrist” is ANY person who professes to be a Christian or a follower of Christ -- and yet places his own word “in higher regard” than the Word of God. In other words -- he professes that he knows Christ -- yet denies His Word about who “THE ANTICHRIST” is who Christ says is SATAN!!!
Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy is a “Fait Accompli” Today if There Ever Was One!!!
A “fait accompli” – is of course a thing that has ALREADY HAPPENED or has ALREADY been DECIDED to happen BEFORE those affected see it happen or hear about it coming to pass -- leaving them with no option but to accept it. And if there ever was a “fait accompli” in Bible Prophecy – it Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy!!! I mean -- THINK ABOUT IT – Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy outlines the 1st and 2nd Comings of Christ and what He will do with His “Chosen Elect” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are THE SEED OF CHRIST from His 1st Coming to His SOON 2nd Coming in Daniel 9:24-27 whether anyone AGREES OR DISAGREES!!!
And there are over 80 Million or more people who read Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” series who now most likely disagree with Christ’s True Eschatology that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST.” But no doubt think instead that “the prince” that Daniel 9:27 portrays – is NOT CHRIST but will be One Particular Man who will step up on the stage of Human History AFTER the Rapture of the Church. And that it is this World Leader who will be “THE ANTICHRIST” who will proceed to mark everyone “Left Behind” with his infamous mark of 666. And no doubt they also believe that if anyone REFUSES to take his mark which is called “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – then they will either be beheaded or killed in some horrific fashion -- or at the very least NOT be able to
buy and sell in any Department Stores!!!
And of course Daniel 9:27 is even further confused with Dispensationalists’ erroneous interpretations of Chapters like Daniel 7-9 and it’s prophecy of “the little horn” and 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 with Paul describing “THE MAN OF SIN” who Dispensationalists say is “THE ANTICHRIST.” And rest assured that what is happening TODAY NOW with the Vaccine and the Vaccine Passport only reinforces this FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of One Particular Man being “THE ANTICHRIST” who will make everyone take his “MARK OF THE BEAST” which is 666 or be killed.
None of us know the END from the BEGINNING like Christ does -- and so that is WHY we need to stay grounded in His Word. For it may very well happen that Christ will allow the Elites to continue to push “the Great Reset” forward – and we may ALL have to be vaccinated and get the Vaccine Passport before THE RAPTURE???!!! But if we are born-again Christians -- then this should NOT cause us to panic or be DECEIVED that taking a number or a mark from Mankind makes any difference to Christ AT ALL!!! For John saw that it was Christ who had invisibly marked everyone. And HONESTLY -- only the Mark that Christ puts upon us determines who gets into Heaven and whose Eternal Estate is HELL!!! But that doesn’t stop Dispensationalists from promoting the False Eschatology that “THE ANTICHRIST” will be an individual that will rule the WHOLE World being indwelt by SATAN -- or will be SATAN INCARNATE in human form –
when all I can say again is -- REALLY????!!!
FORTUANATELY while so many were reading Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Series and many other Prophecy Books based on Man’s False Eschatology – I have spent all of my time studying Bible Prophecy based on “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology in the Bible!!! And that’s WHY I know and understand that “THE BEAST” is SATAN and that Satan has never needed ONE PARTICULAR MAN of the Future to do his bidding – HARDLY!!! For he has had 2/3 of the unsaved population of this World to do that who are those of HIS SEED beginning with Cain who killed Abel – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And CLEARLY -- Christ has been in the process of Judging Satan and his SEED which included “Cain” since the Garden of Eden.
Which is WHY I want to END by saying that regardless of how the Vaccine Passport plays out -- the FINAL DAY OF JUDGMENT is indeed right on the Horizon to be sure. And that is also WHY my prayer is that we in Christ’s Christian Army will continue MOVING FORWARD IN FAITH. For if we belong to Christ then we already have His “MARK OF SALVATION” which is the Blood of the Lamb written upon our foreheads invisibly by Christ Himself. And while Christ’s DIVINE PLAN includes THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY -- this Final Spiritual Battle is CLEARLY NOT OVER YET!!! Mary Sullivan
