Let God Be True and Every Man A LIAR!!!
May 10, 2021
This Commentary is a continuation of my last Commentary which was written to prove that there is an overwhelming amount of evidence in Scripture that demands a verdict that we are today IN the Great Tribulation that Christ prophesied we “Elect” who are those of us that are HIS SEED would be going through BEFORE THE RAPTURE. And regardless of Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology that teaches that The Church was NOT appointed to God’s Wrath which is WHY He is going to Rapture us BEFORE the Great Tribulation – Christ is not the author of confusion. And rest assured that He explicitly prophesied that those of us who are of HIS SEED will have Tribulation in this World – and that before His 2nd Coming there would be even GREATER TRIBULATION. And for sure Christ's True Eschatology teaches that the Great Tribulation will begin when He takes His restraint off of Satan and LOOSES him to fight the Final Spiritual Battle that we are in today. This is Christ’s DIVINE PLAN – to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN and HIS SEED before THE LAST DAY which is “The Day of The Lord” that He prophesied is the Day He will deliver and Rapture those of us who belong to Him!!!
And what Christ REVEALS in His True Eschatology is that being appointed to wrath and going through the Great Tribulation are two entirely different events. For we “Elect” have the Word of Christ that we are NOT appointed to His WRATH when He had John prophesy this very important TRUTH: “He who believes in the Son has Everlasting Life; and he who does NOT believe the Son shall not see life, but THE WRATH of God abides on him.” (and that of course includes believing in His True Gospel and His True Eschatology – and NOT believing in a False Gospel and a False Eschatology which saves NO ONE!!!) (John 3:36)
The wrath of God that the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ is NOT appointed to – is the coming FINAL DAY of Judgment for the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He chose NOT to save recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. They are the part of this World’s population that are of SATAN’S SEED whose sins were never forgiven and that’s WHY they are appointed to GOD’S WRATH on the LAST DAY of this Human Race. But THANKFULLY we 1/3 Remnant that were saved by Christ’s AMAZING GRACE are not appointed to Christ’s WRATH that will be poured out on the LAST DAY when the 3rdWOE and 7th Plague are poured out on Satan and those of HIS SEED!!! So just to reiterate -- this Great Tribulation is NOT the Last Day’s Wrath – they are 2 separate events!!!
In other words – we “Elect” are appointed to go through the prophesied time of GREAT Tribulation while NOT appointed to go through the Last Day’s FINAL JUDGMENT -- or else Christ would be contradicting His own Words. For He explicitly prophesied that His “Elect” would be here going through this time of Great Tribulation along with those of SATAN’S SEED until He sounded the 7th Trumpet ending this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES!!!
HONESTLY – it just can’t be reiterated enough that the True Gospel of Christ teaches that there are 2 SEEDS of Mankind and that everyone living on Earth at the time of Christ’s 2nd Coming will be in this Final Spiritual Battle which is taking place today. And now we can see that the ENMITY that Christ put between HIS SEED and the SEED OF SATAN is growing stronger on a daily basis making this prophesied time of Great Tribulation even more fierce when those of Satan’s SEED are in total rebellion against Christ and those of us who belong to Christ. Which is WHY Christ is in the process of CLEANSING His Temple just as He REVEALED to Daniel He would in Daniel’s vision of the Ram and the Goat recorded in Daniel 8:12-14.
And what Christ said to the Pharisees and the Sadducees at His 1st Coming is a WARNING to us living today before His 2nd Coming – for He condemned the Religious Leaders for NOT being able to accept the TRUTH that He was “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who had COME to DELIVER them when He said to them: “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)
HONESTLY – when so much of Christendom today believes that the reason for the GREAT TRIBULATION is all about saving the WHOLE Nation of Israel en-masse after the RAPTURE of The Church – then as the saying goes “Houston -- we have a problem”!!! For just as we read prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – Christ saved “the many” of us who are of HIS SEED at His 1st Coming when He also inaugurated His Restored Millennial Kingdom which He has been reigning in ever since. Which means that Christ is NOT coming back to save anyone – REALLY!!! His 2nd Coming is the CONSUMMATION and the bringing to COMPLETION His already inaugurated Restored Kingdom. And if one does NOT believe that Christ’s resurrection from the Dead is what made the Kingdom of God a REALITY – and that His Coming again is what will CONSUMMATE IT – then they have been DECEIVED by Man’s False Eschatology – for Salvation was accomplished for ALL of Christ’s SEED at the CROSS!!!
The True Gospel of Christ teaches that there is only THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST made up of those of us who are blessed to be of THE SEED OF CHRIST – and NOT 2 Bodies of believers within THE SEED OF CHRIST which is the popular belief of so many Evangelical Christians today when they believe that within the SEED OF CHRIST there is The Nation of Israel and The New Testament Church. But Christ taught that there are just 2 SEEDS and 2 SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS and ONLY ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And to disagree with that ESSENTIAL TRUTH of Salvation is to call Christ’s Word A LIE. It is to be AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD which is the meaning of “the Gog and Magog Battle” that is also called “Armageddon” by John in The Book of Revelation.
CLEARLY -- the Apostle Paul and all of Christ’s True Prophets understood that Christ only chose to save a REMNANT of Mankind at any time in Human History which is WHY Paul prophesied from the Lord that if Christ has chosen to save us – then we are born again from above and have ALREADY been delivered from Christ’s Wrath to come on the LAST DAY’S JUDGMENT. And that Judgment and WRATH again is appointed to those of the SATAN’S SEED when we read:
“For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for his Son from Heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” (1stThess. 1:9-10)
Those verses are solid Biblical proof that Christ has ALREADY delivered us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are of HIS SEED from the wrath to come by His death on the cross. And it’s sad indeed that at this late hour of Human History that so many in Christendom STILL don’t understand that the wrath to come is the Judgment of God for the sins of those who are NOT OF HIS SEED -- NOT this time of Great Tribulation!!!!! For Christ didn't go to the cross to deliver us from this time of Great Tribulation – HARDLY!!! – or AGAIN He would be contradicting His own words of prophesying that we “Elect” would be in the Great Tribulation!!! He went to the Cross to deliver us who are of HIS SEED from HIS WRATH that would come upon us for our sins on the LAST DAY’S JUDGMENT.
Christ’s True Gospel teaches conclusively that we “Elect” who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST are NOT APPOINTED to His Wrath even though Christ prophesied we would be going through the GREAT TRIBULATION. But there is yet more evidence that demands a verdict that Christ prophesied that we “Elect” who are of HIS SEED living before His 2ndComing and THE RAPTURE will be going through THE GREAT TRIBULATION. And part of that evidence – is that with each passing day now this Final Spiritual Battle which Satan is leading – is evidence that MAN IS AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about these End-Times.
But THANKFULLY “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that Satan and his SEED will be thoroughly DEFEATED before the FINAL DELIVERANCE. And while this FINAL DELIVERANCE is FORESHADOWED by Christ pouring out the 10 Plagues on Pharaoh to thoroughly DEFEAT him at the time of Deliverance in Moses’ Day – we today are living through the pouring out of these Last 7 Plagues. And we KNOW that those of THE SEED OF CHRIST in Moses' Day went through all 10 of those Plagues and made it through to the parting of the Red Sea and so will we “Elect” today!!! But those prophesied to be “taken by surprise” when Christ parts the VERY HEAVENS this time to DELIVER US are the 21stCentury Pharisees and Sadducees who refuse to believe that we are TODAY living in THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
Only Those of Satan’s SEED are able to Buy and Sell in the Harlot Church
Now That Satan is Ruling There as “THE ANTICHRIST”
Living in this time of Great Tribulation when Satan has been LOOSED to “DECEIVE THE NATIONS” as Christ’s Worldwide instrument of the Final Judgment of this Human Race – it’s important to realize that EVERY False Prophet sells you A LIE in place of the Gospel Truth. And many of these False Prophets never even realize that they are False Prophets because Satan’s Modus Operandi has always been DECEPTION. So just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees they truly believe that they are serving God. When they are deceived in their use of God’s Name to sell what they believe are TRUTHS but are really LIES which are of no real value to anyone’s Spiritual well-being. And that’s WHY Christ has always equated False Prophets to “Buyers and Sellers” and “thieves and robbers” who are in League with Satan and are of his SEED and have been DECEIVED that their False Gospel and Eschatology is THE TRUTH.
In other words – only those of us who are of CHRIST’S SEED are the True Prophets. And NOT because we are smarter or better than anyone else – but because if Christ chose to save us then we have Christ’s Holy Spirit indwelling us and we KNOW CHRIST’S WORD and would NEVER buy and sell Satan’s LIES as the Gospel Truth!!! And rest assured – there is ENMITY between Christ’s SEED and those of SATAN’S SEED which was clearly illustrated at the time of Christ’s 1st Coming when most of the Pharisees and the Sadducees HATED Christ and His Disciples. And make no mistake Christ went into the Temple in Jerusalem to CLEANSE it of False Prophets by EXPOSING their evil deeds which is just what He is in the process of doing TODAY!!!
Christ’s turning over the tables of the “Buyers and Sellers” from what should have been His own House of Worship and Prayer -- FORESHADOWS the CLEANSING OF THE TEMPLE that is going on in the Great Tribulation TODAY that is prophesied in Daniel 8:12-14. For just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were supposed to be the Shepherds of Christ’s people but had made it into a Market Place instead of a House of Worship – AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! I mean – think about it – there is NO ONE on International News
Today and especially Christian Broadcasting that is standing up for Christ’s True Eschatology that prophesies that we “Elect” are NOW going through the Great Tribulation. For most “so called” Christian Leaders just keep saying: “Move along – nothing to see here – the Great Tribulation won’t happen until AFTER THE RAPTURE when then “THE ANTICHRIST” who will be One Particular Man steps up on the stage of Human History to rule the WHOLE WORLD”!!!
And that's WHY this time of DECEPTION in the Harlot Church is FORESHADOWED by the Apostasy of the Old Testament Congregation when Christ had Jeremiah prophesy what is still going on today – that His own Congregation would be BUYING DECEPTIVE WORDS from False Prophets and selling those LIES as GOD’S TRUTHS. And that is the reason WHY Daniel was shown in the same timeframe of Jeremiah that Christ would be CLEANSING THE TEMPLE of False Prophets before His 2nd Coming just like He did in Daniel and Jeremiah’s Day when we read:
“But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless. “‘Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this House, which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe” -- safe to do all these detestable things? Has this House, which bears my Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the Lord.” (Jeremiah 7:8-11)
The end result of the unfaithfulness of Christ’s Congregation TODAY is just what Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his last 4 visions that I outlined in my Last Commentary which REVEALED in those 4 visions given to Daniel that near the very END OF THE WORLD which is TODAY – that Christ would CLEANSE HIS TEMPLE of the False Prophets there in League with Satan which would last a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 2,300 days. And that the CLEANSING would begin with the LOOSING of Satan as a worldwide Judgment of Evil -- and END on the FINAL DAY of JUDGMENT which Christ REVEALED to Daniel was the 1,335th Day and the LAST DAY of this time of Great Tribulation and also the CONSUMMATION of His Restored Spiritual Kingdom on Earth.
The Cleansing of the Temple Began When Satan was LOOSED as
“The Abomination of Desolation” to Rule the Whole World
CLEARLY – all rebellion is sin against God and His Words of TRUTH. And there is just no denying that SATAN is leading the Final Rebellion today in what has been called “The Gog and Magog Battle” which is MAN AT WAR AGAINST CHRIST AND HIS WORD. And this Final Rebellion and Spiritual Battle of GOOD vs. EVIL and TRUTH vs. LIES is what Christ prophesied would be the cause of today’s prophesied GREAT TRIBULATION. For Christ prophesied that when He took His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him to take his seat in the External Global Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” -- that this time of GREAT TRIBULATION would not only begin with Satan leading the FINAL REBELLION against Christ and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – but that we “Elect” would be on Earth to see “The Abomination of Desolation”!!! And that Abomination of Desolation is Satan ruling the Whole World as “THE ANTICHRIST” which has led to Christ now CLEANSING THE TEMPLE of those who are of the SEED OF SATAN when we read:
“Because of rebellion, the Lord’s people and the daily sacrifice were GIVEN over to it. (which again refers to Satan and his Spiritual Kingdom of “Babylon the Great”!!!) It (which refers to Satan’s Kingdom!!!) prospered in everything it did, and TRUTH was thrown to the ground. Then I heard a Holy one speaking, and another Holy one said to him, “How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled -- the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, the surrender of the sanctuary and the trampling underfoot of the Lord’s people?” He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.” (which Daniel saw was this time of GREAT TRIBULATION now lasting a CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days recorded in his last vision!!!) (Daniel 8:12-14)
But sadly because so much of Christendom has bought into Man’s False Eschatology today which is based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism – the True Gospel of Christ that teaches “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology seems almost surreal to many Christians because Satan’s Modus Operandi of ensuring that his LIES and DOCTRINES OF DEMONS appear theologically sound has succeeded!!! When those LIES have been no less than the “crafty distortions” of Christ’s GOSPEL TRUTH of these End-Times!!! And now most Evangelical Christians think that what Tim LaHaye wrote in his “Left Behind” Series is just what Christ wrote in the Bible about these End-Times – when that couldn’t be FARTHER FROM THE TRUTH!!!
HONESTLY -- all false teachings start with the same Propaganda Technique that Joseph Goebbels used which he no doubt learned from SATAN who is the MASTER OF DECEIVERS -- that “If you repeat something frequently enough – people will sooner or later believe it”!!! And that applies whether it is TRUE OR A LIE!!!! And just as Christ prophesied “there is nothing new under the sun” – which is WHY Proverbs 12:15 also says: “The way of a FOOL is right in his own eyes,
but he who heeds counsel is wise.”
And we would be “wise” to heed the counsel of Christ in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in His True Eschatology – NOT the obvious “crafty distortions” of THE TRUTH presented in Man’s False Eschatology of today no matter how popular Man’s False Eschatology is!!! For it just can’t be reiterated ENOUGH that we are today living at the time when the visions that were given to Daniel are being FULFILLED right before our eyes in these times now of GREAT TRIBULATION. And because the ever-so-popular Eschatology of Man which is based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism teaches RELENTLESSLY that The Church will be spared THE GREAT TRIBULATION – most of Christendom has bought into Tim LaHaye’s version of THE RAPTURE taking place BEFORE the Great Tribulation. And honestly – WHY wouldn’t they???!!! For Tim LaHaye taught like all Dispensationalists do -- that over half of this World’s 7.8 Billion people will die from the LAST 7 PLAGUES AFTER the Rapture. And who would want to be around when that takes place???!!!
Where are the Scriptures That Say The Church Will Not Go
Through the Great Tribulation???!!!
FORTUNATELY – what Tim LaHaye and his Dispensationalist Colleagues have taught – that over half of the World’s 7.8 BILLION people will die of the Last 7 Plagues AFTER the Rapture -- is NOT supported by sound Biblical hermeneutic – REALLY!!! But SADLY -- because it is repeated so often – a large portion of Christendom today actually believes that the Scriptures themselves prophesy the False Eschatology that The Church will NOT have to go through the Great Tribulation!!! But if one were to ask any Professed Christian who believes in Tim LaHaye’s Pre-Trib Rapture Theory to give you the exact Chapters of the verses in Scripture that say that the Church WILL NOT go through what Christ prophesied would be a time of Great Tribulation -- or to give you even just ONE Scripture that proves that The Church will be taken out of the world before the Great Tribulation begins -- they usually can’t give even one single passage of Scripture that actually uses the words "the Great Tribulation" in the verses they quote. And HONESTLY – that should be evidence ENOUGH that demands a verdict that what they are teaching is a False Gospel and a False Eschatology if the words "Great Tribulation" are NOT even in the Scriptures they quote!!!
For any Eschatology that is NOT based on “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology and Gospel is FALSE if it teaches that everyone on Earth will NOT be going through the GREAT TRIBULATION – including those of us who are part of CHRIST’S SEED. For -- THINK ABOUT IT – this Final Spiritual Battle is being fought between the 2 SEEDS of Mankind and the 2 SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS of this World which are the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of Satan. In other words – everyone is in Bible Prophecy because EVERYONE is in this Final Spiritual Battle that is going on TODAY which includes the 2 SEEDS of Mankind!!!
And “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology CONFIRMS this TRUTH!!! For Christ explicitly prophesies that His “Elect” Chosen Generation will go through a time of Great Tribulation right before His 2nd Coming because He will LOOSE Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle which must occur before THE FINAL DELIVERANCE AND THE FINAL WRATH takes place on the LAST DAY. And wouldn’t it be a case of MAN AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD about His 2nd Coming just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR WITH CHRIST about His 1stComing to DISAGREE with the TRUTH that the 2 SEEDS of Mankind are fighting against each other in this Final Spiritual Battle???!!! I mean – who is Satan and HIS SEED fighting if NOT Christ and HIS SEED???!!!
And if Man’s Eschatology doesn’t agree with Christ’s True Eschatology – wouldn’t it be fair to surmise that it is based on their own personal interpretation of these End-Times – and NOT something that God has actually inspired written???!!! Unfortunately -- this very glaring and obvious lack of sound hermeneutics doesn’t deter those who choose to believe what is popular instead of believing what Christ has written AS TRUE. And it goes back to Joseph Goebbels’ Modus Operandi or propaganda techniques along with the old adage: “If you repeat an untruth enough times, many will begin to believe it simply by process of indoctrination, and will look upon it as established truth.”
This is how nearly all false teachings start. If you parrot a teaching enough times in a way that at least on the surface sounds reasonable -- or that appears right in the eyes of a “fool” as we read in Proverbs 12:15 -- there are always FOOLISH Lukewarm Counterfeit Christians who will believe it no matter what the word of God actually says!!! And CLEARLY -- the Word of God not only declares that persecution is normal for Christians – but the Bible is the written record and PROOF that Christians have been persecuted in every way imaginable since Cain killed his own Brother Abel. And Christ never took them out of the world to avoid it – HARDLY!!!
Christ teaches that it is through Tribulation and persecutions that we learn humility and grow closer to the Him. And our weakness in this time now of Great Tribulation makes us aware of our lack of ability to overcome by ourselves. In other words – our backs are so up against the wall today with all of our Christian Liberties now being taken away and with Satan and those of HIS SEED who have reprobate minds NOW ruling this WHOLE WORLD -- that we need to turn our hearts to Christ for DELIVERANCE. For just like in the Deliverance of Moses’ Day we might as well have the Red Sea looming ominously out in front of us and Pharaoh and His Egyptian Army barreling down behind us – for things are just that DIRE!!! But we also have the DELIVERANCE of Moses’ Day to help us believe that Christ will AGAIN DELIVER us today!!! We just need to realize while going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION that CHRIST is OUR STRENGTH – OUR DEFENSE – OUR REFUSE – and OUR SHIELD -- and that HE WILL DELIVER US!!!
There is NO Scripture which defines “THE ANTICHRIST” as a Future Supernatural Human
Or a Political Leader -- or a Demon Born of Someone in Need of an Exorcism!!!
FORTUNATELY – we living today have the awesome visions given to Daniel which Gabriel told Daniel were visions for the prophesied time of THE GREAT TRIBULATION that we living today in this 21st Century find ourselves in. And that’s WHY we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST are indeed Blessed that Christ sent Gabriel to interpret the visions that He was REVEALING to Daniel when Gabriel stated plainly:
“I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of THE END.” (which is TODAY’S GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ is now pouring out these LAST 3 WOES and His WRATH on SATAN and his SEED!!!) (Daniel 8:19)
HONESTLY -- it would be IMPOSSIBLE to understand these End-Times that we are living in today without understanding the Books of Daniel – Ezekiel – and of course the awesome Book of Revelation. And clearly the vision of the “4 BEASTS” in Daniel Chapter 7 is written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE which is WHY it needed explaining through Gabriel and of course through Christ’s Holy Spirit. But this much is certain – the 4 last visions given to Daniel recorded in Daniel Chapters 7-12expand on the 4 Kingdoms REVEALED decades earlier to Daniel about the Statue of SATAN that Christ gave to King Nebuchadnezzar in a dream.
And THANKFULLY Christ gave Daniel the understanding that SATAN would be “THE ANTICHRIST” that would rule the LAST 4 Kingdoms of this World pictured in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream so that we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST living TODAY in this prophesied Great Tribulation would NOT have to wonder WHO THE ANTICHRIST IS. For Christ REVEALED to Daniel that “the little horn” is also “THE ANTICHRIST”
who is none other than SATAN!!!
In other words -- in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology Christ does NOT teach that One Particular Man of the Future will rule the WHOLE WORLD before His 2ndComing – HARDLY!!! The idea of “THE ANTICHRIST” being ONEPARTICULAR MAN of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet goes AGAINST what Christ REVEALED through Daniel -- that SATAN would be the ruler of the 4 Last Empires of this World and that he would be “the little horn” that would rise up in power to become the ruler of the WHOLE WORLD. And CLEARLY – Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that while Satan will have an ARMY of 200 MILLION Demons working to help him DECEIVE THE NATIONS -- ONE PARTICULAR MAN becoming “THE ANTICHRIST” who marks everyone with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” after the Rapture has absolutely nothing to do with Biblical hermeneutics or sound exegesis of the prophecy that is “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – REALLY!!! And Paul explains WHY there is not just ONE LAWLESS MAN – but a virtual Army of LAWLESS MEN in Satan’s Army in the prophecy that Christ gave to him of “The LAWLESS MAN.”
CLEARLY -- “The Lawless Man” in Paul’s prophecy from Christ of these End-Times -- is the VAST MULTITUDE of the 2/3 Remnant of Mankind that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 that would NOT be saved by Him. And both Paul and John clearly understood that this 2/3 Unsaved Remnant who are of THE SEED OF SATAN would be engaged in the Final Spiritual Battle against us “Elect” 1/3 Remnant that Christ has now saved before His 2nd Coming. In other words – they both understood that the unsaved population of this World that we see in REBELLION against Christ and HIS WORD would be a GREAT MULTITUDE of LAWLESS MEN living before the 2nd Coming of Christ who do NOT follow the laws of God. And we are seeing that prophecy being FULFILLED right before our eyes TODAY – REALLY!!! Daniel saw this LAWLESSNESS too in his 1st of the 4 visions of “THE BEAST” when he saw Satan rise at the END of his Final 4th Kingdom to reign as “THE ANTICHRIST” and when he saw SATAN and his SEED change “times and LAWS” as we see happening TODAY when we read:
“He will speak against the Most High and oppress His Holy people and try to change the set times and THE LAWS. (which is sadly happening every day now with this New Administration!!!) The Holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.” (which is the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy that we are going through TODAY!!!) (Daniel 7:25)
Make no mistake -- unsaved Mankind who is now TOTALLYLAWLESS is what Paul refers to as “The Man of Sin” or “The Lawless Man” that we see AT WAR with us who are in Christ’s Christian Army on Earth TODAY. And HONESTLY -- there SHOULD BE NO MYSTERY in Paul’s definition of who this “Man of Sin” is – for the very definition of sin is “the transgression of the laws of God” – which makes any unsaved person “A Man of Sin” since He has NOT been forgiven of his sins and has no feelings of regret or remorse in breaking God’s Laws being led by the ANTICHRIST Spirit of Satan. This is WHY when John saw the last 7 Plagues being poured out on SATAN and HIS SEED that he prophesied what we see happening also today. That unsaved Mankind who is NOW TOTALLY LAWLESS could care less about keeping the LAWS of God – REALLY!!! That’s WHY John prophesied that in this time of Great Tribulation that Satan’s SEED would refuse to repent of their EVIL DEEDS when we read:
“But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did NOT repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries (which includes the huge drug trafficking and drug addiction that Satan and his SEED is responsible for today!!!) or their sexual immorality (included in sex trafficking!!!) or their thefts.” (Rev. 9:20-21)
And even with these LAST 3 WOES now being poured out -- John saw that the 2/3 Remnant who were NOT saved by Christ refused even more than EVER to repent. And that is because the 1st 2 of the Last 3 WOES are Plagues of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS. So those REFUSING to repent do not even realize that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION and that THE LAST DAY’S JUDGMENT of the 3rd WOE and 7th LAST PLAGUE and GOD’S WRATH is about to be poured out upon them!!! SADLY -- because of “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts like the late Tim LaHaye who sold over 80 Million copies of his “Left Behind” series -- so much of the World of Christendom today actually believes that “The Man of Sin” in Paul’s prophecy of these End-Times -- is ONE PARTICULAR MAN that will step up on the stage of Human History after the Secret Rapture of the Church – NOT the TRUTH that Christ was trying to convey to us who are of HIS SEED -- that “The Man of Sin” is sinful man in particular– NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN!!!
And now we see so many Professed Christians being DECEIVED by the ever-so-popular False Eschatology of Man which is based on Dispensationalism – that this can’t be the GREAT TRIBULATION because 1stthe Church will be Raptured and THEN One Particular Man who is “THE ANTICHRIST” will be REVEALED when he makes a Peace Treaty with the Nation of Israel. This False Eschatology may have made people like Tim LaHaye rich and famous – butit bears no resemblance to the True Eschatology of Christ AT ALL!!! For THE WORD OF GOD declares emphatically that “The Man of Sin” is LITERALLY the Lawless Man who Christ chose NOT to save and forgive!!!
“THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is The Number of Unsaved Man – NOT of
One Particular Man of The Future
There really is no confusing language in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 -- for the confusion comes in when False Prophets “read into” Scripture something that Christ never prophesied as TRUTH. The only mystery in Christendom is why so many people are deceived by the preposterous idea that One Particular Man will be “THE ANTICHRIST.” When since the beginning of time Satan has had a virtual ARMY of Men and Women in his EVIL GENERATION that are of HIS SEED who have been more than willing and ready to do his evil bidding for him. I mean – think about it – isn’t it pretty ludicrous to think that there is only ONE MAN OF SIN and that he hasn’t even stepped up
on the stage of Human History yet???!!!
And CLEARLY -- the Scripture in Revelation Chapter 13 that Man’s False Eschatology uses to PROVE that One Particular Man of the Future will become “THE ANTICHRIST” in the not too distant Future who will physically mark all those “Left Behind” after THE RAPTURE of the Church with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” -- is just as LUDICROUS!!! AND HERE’S WHY -- the letter “a” was put in Christ’s Word so that the World of Christendom would believe the Dispensational Pre-Millennial Eschatology of Man of ONE PARTICULAR MAN being “THE ANTICHRIST” – REALLY!!! When the Greek manuscripts do not say the number of “a” man – absolutely none of them!!! They ALL say the number “of Man”. . . . . Period!!!
This is an important issue that should not be glossed over in determining if we are IN the Great Tribulation – for Dispensationalists base their WHOLE Pre-Rapture Theory on the LIE that “THE ANTICHRIST” must be REVEALED before the Great Tribulation – which is only partly true. For “THE ANTICHRIST” is prophesied to be REVEALED at the beginning of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy – that much is TRUE!!! But “THE ANTICHRIST” is NOT ONE PARTICULAR MAN in Christ’s True Eschatology – BUT SATAN!!! And sadly – Dispensationalists have added the letter “a” to say “a man” in Dispensational Footnotes of many Translations of the Bible. When even a novice in the Greek knows that there is NO article “a” in the actual passage of Revelation 13:16-18. HONESTLY -- all one needs to do to see that this is TRUE -- is to consult a faithful expert in the Greek Language and they will tell you that there is no article “a” in Revelation Chapter 13 – for MAN put that “a” there – NOT CHRIST!!!
The verses in Revelation Chapter 13 are clearly speaking of those who belong to SATAN’S SEED which John saw that Christ had ALREADY invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.” For Christ was trying to convey through John’s 4th vision that “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” is the number of unsaved man -- NOT the number of “a man”!!! In other words – Christ was having John contrast “the Man of Sin” who is of THE SEED OF SATAN whose character is of lawlessness or SIN -- with “the Man of God” who is of THE SEED OF CHRIST and whose character is of obedience to the Law. And so “the Man of SIN and LAWLESSNESS” in God’s eyes is the one He chose NOT to save and ALREADY has been invisibly marked with Satan’s number of 666 by Christ Himself 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 one who has THE MARK OF THE BEAST, or the number of his name. (and the “He” refers to Christ who John saw had invisibly marked EVERYONE with either “THE MARK OF SALVATION” or “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”!!!) Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of THE BEAST, for it is the number of man (NOT of “a” Particular Man of the Future – but of unsaved Mankind in particular!!!!): His number is 666.” (Revelation 13:16-18)
HONESTLY – if your translation of the Bible says “a” Man in Revelation 13:16-18 it has been added to Christ’s UNADULTERATED WORD by Man. For to say there is only ONE Particular Man who is “The Man of Sin” or “THE ANTICHRIST” is like saying that there is only ONE Particular who is “The Man of God” when Paul also wrote: “But you, O Man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.”
There is ABSOLUTELY nothing in the prophecies that Christ gave to Paul to illustrate that just One Particular Man will be “THE ANTICHRIST” after The Rapture of the Church who will cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION with no one being able to “buy and sell” without his MARK OF THE BEAST – REALLY!!! NOR did Christ mean to convey in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 that just ONE PARTICULAR MAN would rise up in a rebuilt 3rd Temple in the LITERAL CITY of Jerusalem who would oppose the laws or commandments of God and declare HIMSELF TO BE GOD!!! The man of lawlessness or "The Man of Sin" illustrates a rising up of unlawfulness in the Churches -- NOT in a LITERAL rebuilt Temple in the Middle East which is clearly FALSE ESCHATOLOGY!!!
SATAN is “the little horn” That Christ Revealed to Daniel who is
“The Antichrist” That will Rule the Whole World
For this “little season” of Great Tribulation
CLEARLY -- Christ REVEALED THE TRUTH of His Eschatology to Daniel that SATAN was the Man in the Statue that He gave to King Nebuchadnezzar which prophesied that SATAN would rule the LAST 4 Kingdoms. And make no mistake -- Daniel’s 2nd vision of Daniel Chapter 8 differs from the ones recorded in Daniel Chapters 2 and 7. For while they focused on the 4 Kingdoms ruled by Satan from Babylon to the LAST DAY – the vision of Daniel Chapter 8 concentrates specifically on an EVENT that will occur during the final years of the 4th Kingdom of Satan which is “The Abomination of Desolation” of SATAN ruling the WHOLE WORLD TODAY!!!.
In other words -- Daniel Chapter 8 is a vision about SATAN’S rise as “THE ANTICHRIST” which lays the groundwork for understanding Daniel’s 4thvision of the last 4 visions recorded in Daniel Chapters 10-12 which prophesies the Kings of the North and the South. For it is in these last 3 Chapters which record Daniel’s 4th vision that we learn of the Hellenistic or post-Greek Era with have particular emphasis on the Seleucid King Antiochus IV Epiphanes who is presented as a “type” of “THE ANTICHRIST” who Daniel knew from Christ would be SATAN at the End of time!!! And that’s WHY it’s so important living TODAY that we understand that it is SATAN that is referred to as “the little horn”– NOT One Particular Man of the Future – but SATAN!!!
For this “little horn” was REVEALED in the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to Daniel when we read: “And in the latter time of their Kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a King of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (and that describes Satan as ruling the WHOLE WORLD which is what Christ had Daniel prophesy would be “The Abomination of Desolation” that we are seeing NOW!!!) (Daniel 8:23)
And what is also so vital to understand as I wrote in my last Commentary– is that the last Ancient Kingdom of PROPHETIC IMPORTANCE in the Bible is GREECE – NOT Rome as Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly without any merit. For clearly – Christ used the Greek influence to spread the Gospel since so many Nations spoke Greek owing to the conquest of Alexander the Great. THINK ABOUT IT – the conquest of Alexander enabled the New Testament Gospel which is written in Greek to spread near and far as it has TODAY. And it just can’t be denied that Christ had the Apostle Paul who wrote almost half of the New Testament for Him use the term “the Jews and the GREEKS” as a synonym for the Human Race – NOT “The Jews and the Romans”!!! And verses like 1st Cor. 1:23-24 and Romans 1:16 and 10:12-13 CLEARLY bear this TRUTH out when Paul always spoke of the Jews and the Greeks – and NEVER of the Jews and the Romans – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
That’s WHY -- there’s just no denying that when we read of the “fierce King” that will arise in the latter time of the “4 horns” that this is the Last Kingdom of Satan that we are living in TODAY when we read “that the transgressors are come to the full” meaning that ALL the Nations as well as the Apostate Harlot Church will have reached the full measure of REBELLION requiring a strong response from Christ just like in the Days of Noah when the Judgment of the Great Flood was Christ’s response!!! And clearly – in this FINAL time of JUDGMENT -- Christ’s response today for Man’s APOSTASY and unfaithfulness is that of the CLEANSING THE TEMPLE when we read:
“And it (which refers to “the little horn” that is SATAN!!!) waxed great, even to the Host of Heaven; and it cast down some of the Host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.”
SATAN is CLEARLY the one being spoken of in Daniel’s last 4 visions recorded in Daniel Chapters 7-12. In other words – SATAN is “the little horn” that grew “exceedingly great, toward the South, and toward the East and toward the Pleasant Land.” And the reason WHY the direction of the advance here is from “the north” is understandable even though these End-Time prophesies given to Daniel are written in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – given that SATAN is “the King of the North” in Daniel’s last vision recorded in Daniel 11:36-45. And it should be noted that Satan’s campaign of neutralizing the Gospel and conquest will take in Egypt to the South -- and Mesopotamia to the East -- and the Pleasant Land which represents the Nation of Israel in the Middle East.
And the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that Christ is painting for us in REVEALING this territory to Daniel -- is that this is the same area of “the Promised Land” that Christ gave to Abraham when we read: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy SEED (which represented those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST!!!) have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the Great River, the River Euphrates.” (which is really meant to signify the Promised Land in the New Heavens and the New Earth which Christ has waiting for us NOW!!!) (Genesis 15:18)
CLEARLY -- this CRYPTIC MESSAGE is so important to understand for our Day because Christ was trying to convey that “the little horn” who is SATAN will wax exceedingly great wherever Christian Congregations are found. And “waxing to the host” means that Satan will use his increased powers after being LOOSED by Christ to neutralize the witness of those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are coming with the True Gospel and the True Eschatology of Christ!!!
And the fact that we read that he “cast down SOME of the Host and of the stars to the ground to trample them” means that these are those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST whose witness is now being “killed and silenced” NOW that Satan is ruling as “THE ANTICHRIST.” For there are many counterfeit Christians and unsaved Churchgoers that John saw in the Harlot Church that will have grown so APOSTATE that this Harlot Church is prophesied to be “riding THE BEAST” which refers to SATAN and his BEAST SYSTEM of corrupt and oppressive Nations in the United Nations today. And Satan does NOT need to cast down the voice of these False Prophets who are ALREADY doing his bidding of promoting LIES AND DECEPTION!!!
FORTUNATELY – Christ has us in His Christian Army still here on Earth in this time of Great Tribulation fighting alongside of Him to EXPOSE SATAN and THE LIES of the False Prophets in League with Satan who are TODAY DECEIVING THE NATIONS!!! And rest assured that Satan will be thoroughly DEFEATED by Christ’s Army. But it is also prophesied that Satan will rule the WHOLE WORLD as we see happening today in this 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy BEFORE the 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!! And those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST living today will be given into the “little horn’s hand for a time and times and the dividing of time” which of course is the CRYPTIC LENGTH OF TIME of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy that is taking place NOW!!!
These prophecies just can’t be IGNORED or replaced by the False Eschatology of Man. For the Prophecy of the 70 Weeks recorded in Daniel’s 3rd vision in Daniel Chapter 9 must be fulfilled -- NOT Man’s False prophesies – but what Christ prophesied through Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions!!! And that is WHY we see Satan NOW reigning the WHOLE WORLD as “THE ANTICHRIST” and leading this Final Spiritual Battle that Christ had both Ezekiel and John call “the Gog and Magog Battle” which is also called “Armageddon” in The
Book of Revelation!!!
And from the beginning of the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which is prophesied in CRYPTIC LANGUAGE to be 42 months which also coincides with the “little season” of Satan’s LOOSING to DECEIVIE THE NATIONS that is prophesied in John’s 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 – to Christ prophesying that we “Elect” will be here going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION as we read in Matthew 24:15-22 – these prophecies of the Final Spiritual Battle taking place TODAY all fit together into ONE GIGANTIC PUZZLE PICTURE of these End-Times. And NO ONE is getting RAPTURED according to Christ until THE LAST DAY!!!
I have at least one more Commentary that PROVES that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION NOW – but I’ve run out of room for now!!!
