“Babylon The Great” is Satan’s Spiritual City
And John Saw That the Religious System of Satan was
October 26, 2020
The True Gospel of Christ REVEALS that there are 2 Spiritual Kingdoms of this World and that everyone on Earth has either been CHOSEN by Christ Himself before the foundation of the World to be part of His Spiritual Kingdom of “Heaven”-- or left to reside in Satan’s Spiritual Kingdom of “Babylon.” In other words – every person in this Present Age of Humanity is a resident of one of these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms of this World regardless of the popular Liberal Secular Humanist philosophy of today which says that we just live in a “natural body” in a “Natural World.” But the GOSPEL TRUTH from Christ’s True Gospel is that “man” first and foremost is a “Spiritual Being” with an Eternal soul and spirit. And that our Spirits exist in one of these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms of this World.
And CLEARLY Christ’s True Gospel teaches that the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” is Satan’s City on this Earth!!! For John saw in his 7 visions that the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He chose NOT to save exist today and have existed since the Garden of Eden in their unsaved soul existence here on Earth in this SPIRITUAL CITY that belongs to Satan. And to PROVE that a 2/3 Remnant out of the World’s population recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 were never chosen to be saved – Christ REVEALED to John in his visions that they were Satan’s possessions from birth to death because John saw that Christ Himself had invisibly written on this 2/3 Remnant Satan’s Name and Number and Mark which is
the Number 666 and the infamous “MARK OF THE BEAST”!!!
HONESTLY -- this TRUTH that there are 2 Spiritual Kingdoms is not only written all throughout the Gospel of Christ but it is especially REVEALED in Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions recorded in their awesome Apocalyptic Books of the Bible -- which are of course The Book of Daniel and The Book of Ezekiel and The Book of Revelation. And clearly if anyone wants to know “The Rapture Truths” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology about these End-Times– they need to study the visions given to Daniel and Ezekiel and John which I have done for over 20 years now. And in all humility I’m learning more NOW with the Return of Christ so close than I ever have. And I know the reason WHY is because Christ promised Daniel that the Generation living BEFORE His 2nd Coming would have the END-TIME visions opened and unsealed to us.
And in studying these awesome visions -- one of the most important TRUTH that Christ has helped me to understand is that He REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their many visions that Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” consisted of not only Satan himself as “THE ANTICHRIST” who is His Supreme Enemy – but that Satan has a VAST ARMY of spiritual beings called “demons” who exist in his Spiritual Kingdom of Babylon also. Along with of course every man and woman that Christ chose NOT to save. And that these Evil Spirits that are residents of Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon” can ENTER – TORMENT – CONTROL – AND MOTIVATE the unsaved “Man of Sin” which Christ had Paul prophesy were “The Sons of Perdition.” And clearly Paul prophesied from Christ that these “Sons of Perdition” would be under the “strong delusion” of Satan when Christ LOOSED Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS to DECEIVE THE NATIONS as we read in both 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 and also in Revelation Chapter 20.
In other words – Paul prophesied that those in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” would indeed be DECEIVED by Satan into thinking that they themselves WERE GOD and could rule in their own Kingdoms as GOD instead of serving Christ in His. And that is exactly what Nimrod also thought who built the original Tower of Babel in the original City of Babylon –
THINK ABOUT IT!!!
This “Man of Sin” thinking to rule himself as if HE WERE GOD is clearly “The Abomination of Desolation” that Christ taught that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would see that would signal His 2nd Coming. And aren’t we seeing that TODAY in this Narcissistic Society when so many “men of sin” or “Sons of Perdition” are being led by Satan in one FINAL REBELLION against Christ and those of us who follow Christ before His 2ndComing???!!! In other words – aren’t we seeing just what Christ had Paul prophesy in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 being fulfilled right before our eyes – that so many want to rule themselves as if they WERE GOD???!!!
And while Man’s False Eschatology teaches that the reason for the 2nd Coming of Christ is to save His True Chosen People who are THE JEWS – Christ’s True Gospel proves that NOT ALL of THE JEWS were ever Christ’s “Chosen Elect” – just as NOT ALL of THE GENTILES weren’t either. For Christ’s True Gospel prophesies that only an “Elect” Remnant belonged to Him at any time in Human History. And that TRUTH was certainly made explicitly clear when Christ pronounced these pretty harsh words to the Esteemed Religious Leaders at His 1stComing when we read Christ saying to the Pharisees:
“You belong to your Father, THE DEVIL, and you want to carry out your Father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the Father of lies.” (John 8:44).
And this indictment goes all the way back to Cain who belonged to SATAN which is WHY Christ had John write: “We know that we are of God, and the whole (unsaved) World lies under the sway of the wicked one.” (1st John 5:19-21) And Cain was DEFINITELY under the sway of SATAN when we read: “For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.” (1st John 3:11-12)
This “SUPREME ANTICHRIST” or “the Wicked One” is who Christ tells us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST to pray in the Lord’s Prayer to be delivered from who is SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the Stage of Human History yet. But sadly – the Esteemed Religious Leaders at Christ’s 1stComing FORESHADOW the Esteemed Religious Leaders now at His 2ndComing when many “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts believe and teach that SATAN is NOT “THE ANTICHRIST” -- but that “THE ANTICHRIST” will not be REVEALED until AFTER the Rapture of the Church. And that is pretty absurd when we read Christ telling His Disciples and everyone in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST since the 1st Century to pray to be delivered from “the Evil One” which could NOT be One Particular Man who will be REVEALED at the END OF THE WORLD but SATAN when we read:
“And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil One.” (and that “Evil One” or “Wicked One” is SATAN – for WHY would Christ tell anyone from the 1st Century until TODAY to pray to be delivered from a MYTHICAL MAN who will become “THE ANTICHRIST” at the End of the World???!!!) (Matthew 6:13) And lest we forget – Paul prophesied that we should put on the whole armor of God to fight against SATAN and his Army of demons and to help us stand when “the Evil Day” arrived as we read in Ephesians Chapter 6. And what DAY or time could be MORE EVIL than these Days of Great Tribulation when Christ has now taken His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him to fight this Final Spiritual Battle???!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
FORTUNATELY -- the True Gospel of Christ REVEALS that Christ has a Spiritual Kingdom too which consists of GOD the Father – Christ Himself as “The Messiah the Prince” who CAME to DEFEAT “the Evil One” who is SATAN which FULFILLED the 1sthalf of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – and the Holy Spirit along with spiritual beings called “Angels.” And of course Christ’s Kingdom also includes those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are the saved 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save before the foundation of the World as He also REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9 And THANKFULLY John also saw us 1/3 Remnant existing in our saved soul existence on this Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.” And that we would be living and reigning with Christ in obedience to Him and His Word right up to LAST DAY. And clearly -- John also saw that we would be invisibly marked by Christ Himself with His “MARK OF SALVATION”!!!
And we also now know that the True Gospel of Christ teaches that from the time of the rebellion of SATAN before the foundation of the World -- that there would be SPIRITUAL WARFARE raging between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ until the very LAST DAY of Human History. And that not only is the Bible the written record of the warfare between these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms – but John’s 7th vision gives us a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Final Spiritual Battle that we are in TODAY that must occur BEFORE the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. When John saw that on “The Day of the Lord” -- which is the LAST DAY -- that Christ will return to Rapture us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST existing right now
in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”
CLEARLY -- The True Gospel of Christ REVEALS that the 1st Part of Daniel’s 70th Week prophesy was fulfilled when “the Messiah the Prince” who was Christ – CAME to save His 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population by dying for our sins at the Cross. And while Christ has FULFILLED the 1st Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – the 2nd Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy will soon be fulfilled with the FINAL DEFEAT OF SATAN in this last Spiritual Battle. And THEN Christ will step back into Man’s Dimension again when the FINAL DELIVERANCE will takes place known as THE RAPTURE. And that’s when “The Rapture Truth” REVEALS in Christ’s True Eschatology that Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom of Heaven will be CONSUMMATED.
In other words – Christ’s resurrection from the dead is what made the Restored Kingdom of Christ a REALITY – and His Coming again is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!! For the CAUSE OF CHRIST coming to Earth was to restore a Remnant of the Nation of Israel to God and then to bring the Gospel Truth and the Light of the Kingdom of Heaven to a Remnant of Gentiles in all the Nations of the World by reconciling BOTH Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. And that has now been ACCOMPLISHED which means that the CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Restored Kingdom is right on the Horizon!!!
Both Daniel and John were Given Visons of Satan’s Army of 200 Million Demons
Loosed with Satan from Hell to Fight This Final Spiritual Battle of Today!!!
CLEARLY -- this Final Spiritual Battle is creating a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us True Prophets of Christ who are in Christ’s Army on Earth today fighting this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES until the CONSUMMATION when Christ’s Kingdom on Earth will END on THE LAST DAY. And certainly Christ gave us the awesome Book of Daniel to guide us in these End-Times.
And that’s WHY it’s important to understand that this incredible Apocalyptic Book is made up of 12 Chapters which are divided into 2 sections of 6 Chapters each with the 1st section being mainly Historical – while the 2nd section is mainly predictive in its REVEALING from Christ what will happen during the 2nd half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which are the times we are living in TODAY!!! This predictive section of the Book of Daniel includes the time of Satan rising to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church being LOOSED by Christ to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that will continue until Christ’s soon 2ndComing!!! There are 4 visions that make up the 2nd 6 Chapters of Daniel which are the predictive half of the Book which are predicting what is happening NOW when Christ REVEALS through these visions:
1. The vision of the Four Beasts in Daniel Chapter 7 which provides additional details about the 4 Kingdoms REVEALED in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream outlined in Daniel Chapter 2 – and that dream was the Statue of SATAN ruling the last 4 Kingdoms of this World – NOT One Particular Man in the Future
2. The vision of the Ram and the Goat in Daniel Chapter 8 which expands on “the little horn” – or the End-Time Antichrist introduced in the preceding vision
3. The Prophecy of the 70 Weeks in Daniel Chapter 9 which provides intriguing Chronological insights into the Lord’s 1st and 2nd Comings with emphasis on the Final “half week” of the End-Time DESOLATION of the Harlot Church which is happening NOW with “The Abomination of Desolation” when Daniel saw Satan taking his seat in the Apostate Congregation which is the Harlot Church AFTER the Gospel Era has NOW ENDED. This happens on the CRYPTIC NUMBER of the 1,290th Day which Daniel saw was followed by the 1,335 days of Great Tribulation that we are in NOW
4. And Finally the vision of the Kings of the North and South in Daniel Chapters 10-12 which features detailed prophesies about the Hellenistic or post-Greek Era with particular emphasis on the Seleucid King Antiochus IV Epiphanes who is presented as a “type” of the coming Antichrist who again is Satan – NOT One Particular Man of the Future – but SATAN!!! And then much information is given about Satan’s End-Time rule that we are in TODAY
CLEARLY – Daniel’s awesome Book was meant to convey that SATAN was “THE ANTICHRIST” of the Final 4 Epoch Empires pictured in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream of the Statue of Satan. For Daniel was told that Satan would rule on Earth during all 4 of these Empires -- but with GREAT POWER after he is LOOSED to fight the Final Spiritual Battle at the END of this Final 4th Empire of TODAY!!! Daniel’s visons are then confirmed by the 7 visions REVEALED to John which also prophesy this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when SATAN would be ruling as “THE ANTICHRIST” near the END of the Final 4thKingdom of TODAY!!! And to prove that Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST” of this Final LAST EMPIRE -- Daniel was shown in his 1stvision recorded in the last 6 Chapters that are the predictive Chapters of these END-TIMES -- that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST will be given into SATAN’S hands for a “little season” which is this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION which is called “a time and times and half a time” which AGAIN refers to this 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that we are living in NOW!!!
And CLEARLY -- Daniel also saw that this time of GREAT TRIBULATION would last the CRYPTIC LENGTH of 1,335 days in his last of the 4 visions recorded in Daniel Chapter 12. But we read first of this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE when we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST will be persecuted by SATAN and those in League with him as Christ had Daniel prophesy that Satan would rise as “THE ANTICHRIST” in his Final Kingdom:
“The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this Kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three Kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, (and he) shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and laws. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.” (Daniel 7:24-25)
This prophecy is definitely describing the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when Daniel is told that SATAN will be the head of all 4 Empires and will rise to especially persecute God’s people during the last 4thEmpire which is occurring RIGHT NOW!!! But notice that in Daniel’s vision how the “10 Kings” of the Earth rally against Christ but are thoroughly DEFEATED when we read next:
“‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. (referring to SATAN!!!) Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of ALL the Kingdoms under Heaven will be handed over to the Holy people of the Most High. His Kingdom will be an Everlasting Kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey Him.’” (referring of course to CHRIST and His Kingdom of Heaven!!!) (Daniel 7:26-27)
And SIGNIFICANTLY – that is exactly what Christ REVEALED to John in his 6th vision about SATAN’S DEFEAT HAPPENING TODAY when we read that “10 Kings” will MAKE WAR with Christ and are THOROUGHLY DEFEATED before the 2nd Coming of Christ recorded in Revelation Chapter 17:12-14!!! And what is also VERY SIGNIFICANT to understand is that the Number 10 signifies “COMPLETENESS” which represents the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon the Earth which has been sourced in “THE BEAST” and his Evil Beast System since the Garden of Eden. And that “BEAST” is none other than “the Dragon” – and “the little horn” who is also “the 8th King” who is now “THE ANTICHRIST” sitting in the External Global Harlot Church WHO IS SATAN!!! And that Harlot Church John saw would be “riding THE BEAST” which is
CRYPTIC LANGUAGE for SATAN ruling all the Nations in the United Nations BEFORE the 2nd Coming of Christ!!!
Christ REVEALED to John That The Dragon with
“7 Heads” – “10 Horns” & “7 Crowns” is Satan!!!
CLEARLY -- The Book of Revelation is NOT to be interpreted as a total Chronological Narrative going from Chapter 1 to 22 as Man’s False Eschatology teaches. In other words – if The awesome Book of Revelation was a list of events that take place in chronological order going from the 1st Coming of Christ to His soon 2ndComing – then there would be TOTAL CONFUSION which was never Christ’s intention. For Revelation Chapter 12 speaks of Christ’s Birth which would obviously appear in Chapter 1 if this was a Chronological Narrative – which it is NOT because Christ’s birth DOES NOT APPEAR until over halfway through the Book.
But what “The Rapture Truth” of Christ’s True Eschatology leads us to understand – is that the vision of the 7 seals are in fact opened chronologically. And that’s WHY Revelation Chapter 7 is a visionary interlude which shows what must happen before the events of the last 7th seal. And since the whole timeframe of the 70thWeek of Daniel goes from the 1stComing of Christ to His soon 2nd Coming -- this Chapter was meant to illustrate that all of us that Christ chose to save in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is “the Spiritual Israel of God” must be born on Earth to be “sealed” by Christ Himself before the Final Judgment takes place. And that means that CLEARLY Salvation ENDS before the Final Judgment on Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” BEGINS.
But make no mistake -- John clearly saw that the Final Spiritual Battle does NOT END until Christ opens the very Heavens and steps back into Man’s dimension again. That when “The Day of the Lord” takes place which is the LAST DAY of Human History – that THEN the 7th seal is opened and the LAST 3rd WOE or 7thPlague is poured out which is the very SAME LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity
that Christ prophesied He will Rapture us “Elect.”
And to PROVE that “The Dragon” is SATAN who is also “THE ANTICHRIST” and NOT One Particular Man of the not-too-distant Future which is what Man’s False Eschatology teaches relentlessly in these last of the LAST DAYS – Christ gave John a vision of SATAN as “the Dragon” when we read:
“Then another sign appeared in Heaven: an enormous red Dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.” (Revelation 12:3)
The Dragon [drakon] is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of SATAN who is a serpent of sight which means that he is something to gaze upon or to wonder after. In other words – it is symbolic CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE that describes SATAN as being “a serpent” and “a dragon” and “THE BEAST” with “7 heads” and “10 horns” and “7 crowns” upon his “7 heads” in John’s 4th vision above. And this “BEAST” REVEALED in The Book of Revelation is a confirmation of what Christ had already REVEALED to both Daniel and Ezekiel in their visions. That SATAN was “the little horn” or “Gog” and “THE ANTICHRIST” who then John saw would be “the 8thKing” that would be LOOSED by Christ for “ONE HOUR” which is this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And that SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future -- will lead his VAST ARMY of “Sons of Perdition” in League with him against us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are part of Christ’s Christian Army on Earth TODAY!!!
HONESTLY -- if one doesn’t realize this is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE and a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE OF SATAN – then they are dabbling in ABSURDITY – REALLY!!! For clearly the “7 heads” in this vision are meant as symbolism of the Authority of SATAN over the Kingdoms of this World which he gained dominion over in the Garden of Eden after the Fall of Mankind. And it is “the 7 heads” that we read are “7 Kingdoms” which is also CRYPTIC LANGUAGE – for “the number 7” represents the totality of SATAN’S rule on Earth with EVIL POWER. In other words -- these “7 heads” of “the Dragon” illustrate the totality of Satan’s authority throughout time – while “the 7 Crowns” emphasize his rule as King over the 7 Kingdoms which are the Kingdoms of this World in their “completeness.” For CLEARLY -- Christ’s True Gospel REVEALS from beginning to End that Satan is “the Prince of this world” and “the God of this Age” – and “the 7 crowns” are what goes on the heads of princes or Kings and rulers of Kingdoms while the 7 “horns” symbolize Satan’s POWER to rule especially NOW that he has been LOOSED to rule MIGHTILY near the end of his LAST 4TH KINGDOM.
But here is what we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST need to understand from both Daniel and John’s visions living so close to the LAST DAY of Human History when “The Day of the Lord” is about to take place. The “10 horns” of the Dragon symbolize Satan’s power and strength as he rules in the latter time that these 10 Kings have NOW COME to power which is TODAY. In other words – the “10 horns” identify this time of Satan’s power when he is LOOSED by Christ to fight this Last Spiritual Battle that must occur BEFORE “The Day of the Lord” and the Rapture on the LAST DAY.
And the number “10” symbolizes the fullness of this time of power within the totality of Satan’s Final rule of all the Nations today in the United Nations when we read this HIGHLY CRYPTIC DESCRIPTION OF SATAN as the 8th King when John prophesied from the Lord that Satan is “THE BEAST” and that the End-Time Harlot Church would be “riding the BEAST SYSTEM” of Satan who now rules over ALL the Nations in the United Nations today when we read:
But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the MYSTERY of the woman and of THE BEAST that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. THE BEAST that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the Bottomless Pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the Earth will marvel, whose names are NOT written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see THE BEAST that was, and is not, and yet is.”
“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven Kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. THE BEAST that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth (King!!!), and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no Kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for ONE HOUR as Kings with THE BEAST. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST. These will MAKE WAR with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
“Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the Harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, Nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on THE BEAST, these will hate the Harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their Kingdom to THE BEAST, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that Great City which reigns over the Kings of the Earth.” (and that SPIRITUAL CITY is none other than “Babylon the Great”!!!)
This MYSTERY is that not only has SATAN been restrained by Christ from being LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD until now – but that he has also NOT been free to UNITE all the Nations of this World into One Evil Empire which is today’s United Nations. And now that he has been LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” he is leading this FINAL REBELLION against Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven and in particular those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST existing in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” in our saved soul existence on Earth today. And the “10 horns” which are “10 Kings” that we read in Revelation 17:12 who have received no Kingdom yet but will receive POWER as Kings for “ONE HOUR” with “THE BEAST” -- are NOT LITERALLY just 10 KINGS – HARDLY!!! For they represent the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon the Earth which is sourced in “THE BEAST SYSTEM” ruled by “the Dragon” who is SATAN – who has had a continuing rulership of the Governments and the False Religions of the World since the Garden of Eden – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
Evidence that Demands a Verdict That The “Little Horn” is “The 8th King”
and “The Antichrist” who is Satan That is Prophesied
in the 2nd Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy Who will be Defeated SOON!!!
Regardless of what Man’s False Prophecy declares – Christ REVEALED to Daniel that THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST will be given into the hands of the “little horn” who is SATAN for “a time and times and half a time” recorded in Daniel 7:25 which is the CRYPTIC NUMBER that pertains to the 2nd half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And in the remainder of this Commentary I pray that I can provide enough evidence that demands a verdict that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are NOW TODAY living in the time that SATAN isREVEALED as “THE ANTICHRIST” who John saw was “the 8th King” of the Final 4th World Empire REVEALED in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the Statue of Satan. And if one has the Spiritual eyes to see it and THE MIND OF CHRIST to understand it – this is also the prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ prophesied that Satan would be leading the FINAL REBELLION against Him and those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which must take place BEFORE THE RAPTURE!!!
This period of Great Tribulation is not only happening near THE END of Satan’s Final Epoch rule of this World as “THE ANTICHRIST” – but it is also important to understand that Satan leading this Final Rebellion is the prophesied “Abomination of Desolation” that Christ Himself said would coincide with His LOOSING of Satan as we read in John’s 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20. For John’s 7th vision prophesies this time when Christ has now taken His restraint off of Satan and allowed him to DECEIVE THE NATIONS. And make no mistake -- part of the deceiving of the Nations has caused a time of Great Tribulation for us True Prophets of Christ in the mishandling of the Coronavirus which Christ has now ALLOWED to happen to bring Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” down in Global Economic ruins.
The “Rapture Truth Revealed” in Christ’s True Eschatology -- is that we have now come to the 4th and Final Kingdom of Satan on Earth represented by” the legs of iron and the feet partly of iron and partly of clay” in the Statue of Satan in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. And clearly “the legs of iron and the feet partly of clay” were meant to convey that Satan and his 200 MILLION DEMONS would be mingling with unsaved Mankind to DECEIVE those that Christ Himself has ALREADY invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” who belong to Satan. In other words -- John saw that those without the “seal” of God which is “THE MARK OF SALVATION” invisibly written upon them by Christ Himself – will be DECEIVED in this time now of Great Tribulation. And because of the DECEPTION from Satan and his Demons promoting their “Doctrine of Demons” -- 2/3 of the World’s population are NOW
TODAY under Satan’s “strong delusions” about these End-Times.
That’s WHY it is vitally important to understand that SATAN was the Man in the Statue of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream who is “THE ANTICHRIST” today – NOT One Particular Man of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the Stage of Human History yet as Man’s False Eschatology teaches!!! For the True Gospel of Christ teaches that it has been SATAN who has ultimately ruled over and impelled the EVIL DESIRES of the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE since the beginning of time. And that of course included Daniel’s Day on Earth when Christ gave Daniel the interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream!!!
And clearly Daniel understood that SATAN was REALLY the head of Gold in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Statue which depicted him as “the Prince of Babylon” during the Babylonian Era. And it was SATAN whose breast and arms of silver in that Statue of him represent him as “the Prince of Persia” during the Medo-Persian rule. Not to mention that it was the belly and thighs made up of brass that depicted him as “the Prince of Greece” during the Greek Era. In other words – Christ is using the standout Nations of their day to also “typify” the successive 4 Epoch rules of Satan on Earth since Daniel’s Day. And that also includes this FINAL 4TH EMPIRE depicting Satan as “the Prince of the United Nations” with “the feet partly of iron and partly of clay” which describes Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS working through unsaved mankind to achieve the great End-Time wickedness that we see happening TODAY!!!
In other words – the visions of Daniel and Ezekiel and John paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that is no doubt meant to convey that ALL of the Kings and Political Leaders along with the Religious Leaders who have ruled along with SATAN are now continuing in their REBELLION against Christ which actually began in Noah’s Day and is still going on today in this Final Spiritual Battle. This was of course EXPLAINED to Daniel in his day with the dream that Christ gave to King Nebuchadnezzar which depicted SATAN as the Supreme Enemy and “THE ANTICHRIST” who would rule the whole world during the “latter days” of his 4thEmpire!!! And THANKFULLY this Supreme ENEMY of Christ and those in League with him are shown to be DEFEATED during this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE soon!!!
And CLEARLY -- John wrote from the Lord just what Christ REVEALED to Daniel – that SATAN is “THE BEAST” of Revelation Chapter 13 and Revelation Chapter 17 who is DECEIVING THE NATIONS today in going TO WAR with Christ and us True Prophets of Christ. For it just can’t be denied that what Christ REVEALED to John in Revelation Chapter 17:12-14 is just what we read in Daniel 7:24-27.
Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies that just like Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s days on Earth -- that we living today before the 2nd Coming of Christ will be IN this End-Time Judgment which is being poured out on Satan and his False Prophets – NOT RAPTURED OUT OF IT!!! And it should be noted that the “10 horns” which are “10 Kings” have ALWAYS EXISTED – for this is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Nations of the World having Human rulership that has more often than NOT been ruled over by SATAN!!! But it is not until the DEMONIC HOST is LOOSED in these last of the LAST DAYS of Mankind when THE BEAST’S rulership over Mankind reaches it’s climax. For Christ REVEALS through John’s 4th vision that the “10 Kings” will be “crowned” indicating that they have reached a sufficient level of wickedness when we read:
“Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a BEAST rising up out of the sea, (which is no doubt referring to the sea of Humanity!!!) having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten CROWNS, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” (meaning that Satan is now the Final 8th King who has been crowned to lead this Rebellion of Mankind now against Christ!!!) (Rev. 13:1)
And John confirms this when He writes that near the time of Christ’s 2nd Coming that “the 10 horns” which are “10 Kings” representing ALL the Leaders of the World will receive “power” as Kings for “one hour” with “THE BEAST” which is this time of GREAT TRIBUATION when the Final Spiritual Battle is being fought!!!
Satan is just One Final Spiritual Battle Away
From Being Thrown Into Hell
Christ’s DIVINE PLAN of Salvation and DEATING SATAN is demonstrated all throughout the Bible but especially in Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions along with Christ having Zechariah prophesy that only a 1/3 Remnant were EVER predestined and elected to be saved by Christ’s Amazing GRACE. But what needs to be especially noted is that Christ’s 1st Coming FORESHADOWS His 2nd Coming – for when Christ came upon the scene the 1st time there was great apostasy going on with many of the Jews going to the Temple but worshipping in vain because they were ruled by the unrighteous Priests who were NOT teaching the True Gospel of Christ. AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
Christ called the Priests of the Temple False Prophets and “the Children of the Devil” whose will they would do readily while they would NEVER align their will with His Will because they did NOT belong to Christ but to THE DEVIL. Which is WHY we read that Christ did NOT come to set “The Sons of Perdition” FREE but to set free those of us in “The Spiritual Israel of God.” And certainly Christ gives us a magnificent CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of His power over Satan when He sent out the 70 – for they returned excited with the power they had received from Christ to defeat the ENEMY who is SATAN. And what Christ wanted to convey was that He HAD ALREADY DEFEATED SATAN in the War that took place in Heaven when we read and should consider wisely living today when SATAN has now been LOOSED:
“ And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (and rest assured that the Power of the enemy who is SATAN – is his working through his False Prophets to hurt our Spiritual Well Being with False Gospels and the False Eschatology of Man which is just what Jesus came to set us free from!!!)
CLEARLY -- Satan is a Spirit. And he works through “The men of sin” or “Sons of Perdition” in his SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” as their authority or King. And Christ gives us a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL OF SATAN who is NOT a LITERAL SERPENT but a Fallen Angel when we read that Christ DEFEATED SATAN at the Cross. And He REVEALED to John that Satan was a DEFEATED FOE in his 4th vision which was a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the on-going SPIRITUAL WARFARE between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ when we read:
“And war broke out in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the Dragon; and the Dragon and his angels fought, but they did NOT prevail, nor was a place found for them in Heaven any longer. So the Great Dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and SATAN, who DECEIVES the whole world; he was cast to the Earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
This is not a Future Event as Man’s False Eschatology teaches – A MILLION TIMES NO!!! – but the past Event when Christ defeated Satan at the Cross. And it was confirmed by Christ pronouncing that He saw Satan fall like LIGHTNING from Heaven which was a prediction of Satan’ being defeated at the Cross. The HIGHLY CRYPITIC SPIRITUAL TRUTH of the WAR IN HEAVEN is that “Michael” is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL NAME for CHRIST. For the word “Michael” is of Hebrew origin which is [miykael] -- meaning “he that is SURELY GOD.” This CRYPTIC NAME of Christ is taken from three root words -- [miy] meaning whom or he -- [kiy] meaning surely or assuredly -- and ['el] -- meaning God. And so Christ gives us a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Himself as [miykael] or Michael who IS ASSUREDLY GOD fighting Satan who is “The Dragon” in Heaven. And CLEARLY Christ is called the “Arch” or Chief or Head Messenger because He is the Messenger of the New Covenant of Grace as we read in Malachi 3:1 who was “The Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who CAME!!!
CLEARLY – Malachi prophesied the 1st Coming of Christ just as Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy did when we read that Christ was not only the “messenger” who came but also “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME to confirm the New Covenant with “the many” of us in His Book of life when we read:
“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the (New) Covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” Says the Lord of Hosts.”
The words translated “angel” and “messenger” are the exact same words. And this is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ and His messengers who fought the Devil and His messengers even before the foundation of the World. And while Satan and his messengers were DEFEATED in Christ’s time which is ETERNITY -- Satan and his messengers were defeated by the Cross of Christ in Man’s Time. And CLEARLY – it was at the Cross when Christ strengthened the Covenant by His death as we read in Hebrews 9:17 that REVEALS that Christ had to die to give His New Covenant of Grace strength to those of us that He came to restore His Kingdom to at the Cross
Satan Now Has NO POWER over us in Christ’s Christian Army
in this Final Spiritual Battle
When Christ defeated Satan at the Cross it meant that FROM THAT POINT FORWARD that Satan had no power over the Army of God -- and that the Kingdom of Heaven could then go forth to the whole world preaching the True Gospel of Christ because Satan was a DEFEATED FOE and was SPIRITUALLY cast out of the Kingdom of Heaven. And that meant that the Bondage that he held us as captives in was broken for those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which was the 1/3 Remnant that Christ had determined would be saved out of this World by His dying for our sins at the Cross.
And clearly -- the Miracle of SALVATION was illustrated by Christ sending out the 70 which was a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of Christ’s Work of DEFEATING SATAN at the Cross. In other words -- His “work” at the Cross would destroy Satan as we read in Hebrews 2:14 so that the saints or SONS OF GOD could be set free from Satan’s Bondage whereby he held the 2nd death over us which was being thrown into HELL for our sins. And after the DEFEAT of Satan Christ could then finish building His True Eternal Universal Church and the gates of Hell could not prevail over it as Satan was defeated -- and cast out -- and bound.
And those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST after the Cross have gone forth Conquering and to conquer just as John saw Christ going forth before us Conquering and to Conquer riding the 1st White Stallion of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse in The Book of Revelation. And because we were risen IN HIM at the Cross – we TODAY in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are still CONQUERING by going forth in battle against SATAN and those in League with him in this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES. And CLEARLY -- Christ wanted us to understand that we True Prophets in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” will overcome the False Prophets in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” in this Final Spiritual Battle by the Blood of Christ.
And the Good News of Christ’s True Gospel is that the 200 MILLION DEMONIC ARMY that John saw LOOSED along with SATAN to fight this Final Spiritual Battle are now subject to us through Christ’s Power of the Cross – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
In other words -- Christ gave us the power to overcome Satan by the Cross -- and that assures us that there is nothing that Satan can do to harm or hurt our Eternal Security IN CHRIST. SATAN can Kill us Christians by having us stoned to death – or by feeding us to the Lions which he did in the 1stCentury – or he can silence and kill our witness with the Internet like he is doing now to Christians in this 21stCentury -- but ultimately he has lost and he has no power in the Kingdom of Heaven any longer having been CAST OUT. And his accusations against us mean nothing to Christ because of the work at the Cross that Christ did on our behalf. In other words – there is NOTHING that Satan can do to harm our Eternal Security -- and certainly not by the False Gospels or the False Eschatology of Man that Satan is using to DECEIVE those without the “seal” of Christ. For CLEARLY -- John saw in his 7 visions that Christ has ALREADY invisibly marked us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST with The Blood of the Lamb which is His “MARK OF SALVATION” which “seals” and secures our souls FOREVER.
Satan who is the Accuser of The Brethren Has Been Cast Down
Which should Give us the Courage to Fight this Final Spiritual Battle to the END!!!
The Gospel Truth that Christ wanted us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST to understand so that we could make it to the LAST DAY when His Restored Millennial Kingdom will be CONSUMMATED along with us being RAPTURED on “The Day of the Lord” – is that the accuser of the brethren is sin and SATAN is the essence and the embodiment of SIN. But at the cross “Michael” who is assuredly GOD and is Christ “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME -- cast down the accuser who is SATAN. In other words -- Satan was CAST OUT of Heaven. And by our being purged from sin and Christ destroying or making idle Satan who held the fear of death over us we read:
“Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, THE DEVIL.” (OR SATAN who is “THE WICKED ONE” and also “The Dragon”!!!)
In other words – the MIRACLE OF SALVATION and the strength to overcome SATAN came at the Cross when Christ strengthened or confirmed the New Covenant of GRACE with “the many” of us in His Book of Life that was prophesied in Daniel 9:27. And when “the Messiah the Prince” CAME – it is when Satan was cast out of Heaven so that he no longer had the POWER OF DEATH over us – which is also when Salvation came for EVERYONE in Christ’s Book of Life. And the one who DEFEATED Satan was Christ who is called “Michael” – who is the Chief Messenger of the New Covenant of GRACE prophesied in Malachi 3:1 and “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy who CAME that is ASSUREDLY GOD!!!. This verse above tells us how the victory over SATAN was achieved at the Cross. And that the MILLENNIAL KINGDOM of Christ came and was inaugurated at the CROSS!!!
Consider wisely the signification of what Christ’s True Gospel teaches -- that when He cast out Satan from the demon possessed during His Ministry on Earth it meant that the Kingdom of Heaven had come. That He was “the Messiah the Prince” who HAD COME to cast out Satan and his demons. And MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL – Christ indeed came to bind SATANto and deliver those of us in the 1/3 Remnant that Satan held captive. But we need to also understand that TODAY Satan is REVEALED through “the Lawless men” who are AT WAR against CHRIST and His True Gospel which is this Final Spiritual Battle of “Armageddon” and the “Gog and Magog.” And clearly -- Satan is doing his best to DECEIVE even “The Elect” TODAY if that were possible. For Christ prophesied “the strong delusion” would come through Satan and his demons working through his False Prophets recorded in Matthew 24:24.
HONESTLY -- while it looks like Satan has triumphed and that all hope is lost – we know that Christ REVEALED to Daniel that we “Elect” would be “Blessed” if we made it to the END of the 1,335 days in Daniel’s last vision recorded in Daniel Chapter 12. And certainly the reason WHY we will be “Blessed” -- is because we will see the AWESOME 2ndComing of Christ on “The Day of the Lord” when Christ will return to
RAPTURE AND DELIVER US SOON!!!
And I PRAY that knowing these TRUTHS of Christ’s True Gospel in “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology will give anyone reading this Commentary that I have written for the Lord the courage to MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH until He sounds the Last 7th Trumpet after He has DEFEATED Satan and those in League with Him FOREVER -- which will happen SOON!!!
But until that LAST DAY just know that I am forever
and always In His Service . . . . Mary Sullivan
